Oh, Seniors ! Embarking on the sea of life; Long may your deeds be remembered. Above the struggle and strife. You’ve made a name for yourself In this dear old school of ours; You’ve braved the sea of high school life; And come out shining stars. Fight still, those waves of discontent, Those blizzards and those gales; Fight on for the sake of winning. Until your very life fails. And in the ship of hope and harmony, May the guiding hand of fate Pilot you over this sea of life. Straight through the Golden Gate. —John Stentz.

The sweet young ones, Juniors, were beginning bo adopt a slightly die-nifieH Xe n d r “Charm%r a d - t0 , l 4 dance caffi . todo Cbarm Sc bool instead of house, as young children are want Finally, the swelled buds burst resplendently into flowers What a Bleeding Hearts ' Wd, ’ ams - Black -eyed Susans, Blushing Violets, g ni n iV Bach d ° r Buttons, Roses, Pansies Forget-me-nots, Lazy Daisies, Blue-Belles and hundreds of other varieties grew in exotic profu¬ sion in this beautiful Garden of Emerson. It was a magnificent sight a . nd As , slstant Gardener Newton, and the ever present fairy lady never Awfchus f f- the blossoms. With the new king, Bachelor-Button HnS ’r n of-fi-surs (Rosemary, Blue-Belle Shaner, Bleeding-heart V y I i UCa l ) . and Board of Controlias, (Bachelor-Buttons mas”ef of e bloomb, hl th ' and Blae - B eHe Shaner) at the reins, the great masses of blooming things, endowed with magical powers overcame the dreaded insects and weeds again and again. ’ overcame The footballia Tulips were so mighty that even the weeds emailed hiTfdSIwH ’ P v a,e and fi , naBy shrivelled up and died. The Gardener and his friends, Veenker and Brassaemle, proud of the fine tulips, took them often to flower expositions, to tuilp-wars, and always the result was the same- the Emerson Footballia Tulips (Oavanaughus, Huges, Mohardt, Shay, Eibela, Heredia, Sutherlandus, English, Matthewius, Houblea- sum, ' and Crumlia) were peerless. Even among the remaining tulips in the Emerson Garden, these and the other Senior Footballias ranked high, and three times they ' were voll “Victors.” The beaming Gardener and the Immortal Mother showed in different ways their admiration for these flowers. Gardener Spauld¬ ing took painstaking care of them, while the fairy lady, in conjunction with the remaining blossoms, gave them a nectar and ambrosia feast in the moonlight. As for the Basketballia Golden-Glows, among them Eibela, Cavan- aughus, Matthewsius, Aldrichus, Thompsonia. and Goldmamum, they could well afford to glow so with pride; had they not won innumerable prizes at flower festivals? The Hollyhockeys too were free to stand tall and haughty for they also were champions. Even the water nines (Taylorus, Mehlera, Crowthera, and Van Cleavium) floating in the pool, and the Johnny-Jump-Ups (Hendersonsus, Eibela, and Hughes) knew the sweet taste of victory when the fairy mother permitted them to exercise. When the garden began to be a trifle complacent, of course Puck, the embodiment of mischief, had to relieve the monotony. One night when the fairy was asleep, he took from here and there powerless flowers, (they all were resistless unless under the influence of Educay Shion s wand) and transplanted them into a vacant area. Lo and behold! there was a little bit of everything —unlimited “Spice and Variety. When the ever vigilant fairy (except this one time) Educay Shion awoke, she saw that her flowers were as fresh as if they had been gently rained upon. Seeing that they enjoyed Puck’s mischief, she decided that play was an excellent spring tonic; so not only did she let them have a glorious game of hide-and-go-seek, but she also let them act a quaint fairy play, “The Piper.” Soon these bits of lovliness, who had imbibed so much wisdom at the hands of the Gracious Lady, began to feel sad, for their sagacity made them realize their sunshiny garden days were drawing to an in¬ evitable end—they ' would necessarily be plucked. Before they left, though, they felt the need of saying “au revoir” to their loved home, so the Lady Slippers, followed by the great number of sweet smelling flowers and hardy plants, attended an enchanted ball: the Senior Fare- Then too, a few days before the departure, the fairy and her at¬ tendants most impressively and gravely prepared the garden inhabitants for the future by giving them the sweetest sermon ever heard by flowers: in the magic tongue, it was called “Baceal Laureate Address. And then the bitter-sweet end; the goal which those spectators had vizualized when the little seeds were planted had been reached. Lady Life entered, gathered those flowers which had fully matured, draped them in diploma ferns to make them more pleasing in her sight, and walked out unobstrusively, with her arms filled with heavy masses of blossoms. And so it came to pass that the Garden of Emerson lost one of the most beautiful flower harvests it had known in its long history.

They then pushed out on the lake and hurriedly sank their nets. They wished to get off the lake before the squall came in. When they pulled up their nets, great was their surprise to find in them a large vase tightly closed. They carried it to shore and opened it. Inside they found a document which was labeled: OUR CLASS PROPHECY MADE AND SIGNED BY THE SENIORS 1925 THE YEAR WE SET OUT ON THE SEA OF LIFE “Why,” said one of the fisherman, “this is that prophecy, that we Juniors were looking for so long, no wonder we couldn’t find it.” “Let’s read it,” said the other. They opened the paper, which was a little yellow from age, and began to read: “We, the Seniors, in view of leaving school in June, 1925, prophesy what will become of the famous class of 1925.

THE “F” --- ...a SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY Tune in with us and you shall hear Of Emerson’s leading Sophomore Year, We started as Freshmen, green and bright Piercing the denseness of the night Of Ignorance. And fondly hoping To find what leaves most others groping, And we have found untold success! We had disappointments, nevertheless, Chief of which was our Freshman play Which never came to pass—but stay. Our Freshman Year was not leplete With grand events—nor yet defeat, For blossoming out in our Soohomore Year We are coming nearer and ever near To the zenith of things we hope to do And fulfillment of oir hopes which arc not a few. Our worthy president, Samuel Jones, And Maureen Fisher add new tones To our brightly flash ng Sophomore Class. You’ll surely agree you can’t ' surpass Our Sophomore play and our Sophomore dance, Where joyful throngs did gaily prance In the dim rose light, to the merry sound Of music and laughter, round after round. e trust you all say our Sophomore plav ith Gordon Dalby in a part That made us laugh r’ght from the start. Hettie Patch and Ned Garrity Furnished sufficient hilarity To compensate for Thomas White Who seldom found anything just right. Charles Isenburg, as “Mister Dade,” The villian who who was justly paid: Elizabeth Handley and Ellsworth Meyers, Of these stars one never tires— You’ll not deny that many a day Will speed along on its silver wings Before another class to you brings The happiness that ‘Penrod” brought. And do you ever give a thought To the Athetlic successes of our boys ho brought to our hearts unequalled joys By helping place Emerson on the map. As best grid stars our state has had? Despite what other folks may say It’s hard to beat our own Joe Shay. Captain of our Varsity team. All the students must esteem Hoy Matthias and Bob Ray, Our track stars, on. the great wide way, Try to beat them if you can— ith Charles Abrams and Paul Mann,— Obtain the laurels for our school. It seems to be an established rule for Ours to be the big events In all our school’s achievements. THE The Emerson Band is not complete. Without the Sophomores, to greet Our opponents on the football field. Our Sophomore girls, whose voices clear Bring them to Victory without fear, In our County Chorus, please and charm All who hear from city or farm. Then our Sophs can Parly-vous, And other things they can do, too, In Latin classes we all star; And Spanish—there we have no par. In History class it is the same. And all the rest I cannot name. We’re excellent in Mathematics. We must make it quite emphatic That in English class, beside, We are all our teachers’ pride. Come, my readers, listen to me As I tell you of our Society. Classical Club, and Spanish, too, Depend on what the Sophomores do To make their doings a grand success. Can they do without us? Well, I guess! Our secretary is Mar ' on Bain And our treasurers add much to our fame, Winnie Lucas, with Louis Snyder Taking a place there right beside ’er. Miss E. J. Garber we cannot forget As our Class Sponsor, who would not let Our Sophomore class a failure be Hut a grand success entirely. The Sophomores on the Honor Roll Have reached a long-desired goal That others envy. And all must confess Our “Spice and Variety” acts met success. In the Declamatory Contests, we vvere there, And walked off with triumphant air. When you know all this you cannot blame The Sophomores for saying Fame Is not far off—nor is it, though We’ve only started out, you know. Upon life’s conflict which must be won, But starting right, it ' s half way done. For though our school life seems quite gay We really work as well as play, Nor do we claim all the success Of our unparalleled progress. We give our thanks where it is due To all our friends so kind and true. Our parents and our teachers, all Who by some deed, however small Have helped us by going on our way, All cares and sorrows to allay; To realize that when we stop, The rest will keep on to the ton. Thus in school-work and society, We have been and always will be The leaders upward and ever on Of our grand old school, Gary’s Emerson! Marguerite Monahan. ’2 .

Some of us entered with shaky feet while others with their hair standing straight up in the air from the fright of “beginning high school.” We promise to be the best class in Emerson and even in the State of Indiana. Along at the beginning of the semester in September, the first Freshman class meeting was called for the purpose of elect¬ ing officers, which resulted as follows: President, Joseph Nelson; Vice-President, Avilane Jahn; Secretary, Margaret Krayniak; Treasurers, Florence Leibov and Leonard Boyton; and Class Sponsor, Mrs. Reck. Later in the semester, Edward Hughes and Evelyn Gourley were chosen as our representatives to the Board of Control. Some of the illustrious boys of our class are Edward Hughes, who was a member of the varsity basketball team, and Leonard Boyton, who was one of the representatives to the Froebel-Emerson Declamatory Contest. Of our girls, we have Erma Snowden, another of the contestants of the Froebel-Emer¬ son Declamatory Contest. We promise to be the best class in Emerson; to be sure, WATCH US AND SEE!

INTRODUCTION Having won the state championship for two successive years, Emerson’s team of ’25 set out with a definite goal in sight. Having the hardest schedule that any Emerson team ever had, it was a herculean task. The nucleus of the team we e the eight letter men of ’24: Capt. Cavanaugh, Mohardt, Hughes, Hered, Douglas, Shay, Eibel and Bud English. This left Emerson with almost a complete team and therefore a team was formed that had the best claims of any Hoosier school team, to the cham¬ pionship. The team, better known as the Golden Tornado was fast and hard hitting and it gained a reputation for itself which is hard to beat. Each man knew his part in the game and played it, thus making team work which was nigh invincible. Its accuracy of passes, the running of interference, the ability of the line to hold and to charge through the opponent’s line made the name of Emerson feared in all high school circles. Opponents were seldom able to penetrate the Golden Wall for more than a few yards and then they were quickly downed by the waiting backs. On the offense the line men opened wide gaps in the oppo nent’s line, through which our backfield men galloped almost at will. Just like a tornado it engulfed team after team by its smashing, fighting, devastating fury. The work of such linesmen as Capt. Cavanaugh and Eibel at end; Hughes and Crumbly at tackle; Hered and Douglas, at guard, and Mat¬ thews at center; coupled with the generalship of Jim Shay and the smashing attack of Mohardt, Joe Shay, Hughes and English; could mean nothing but the gaining of the much coveted laurels, the State Championship. After two weeks of strenuous practice at Camp Roosevelt the forty candidates returned at the opening of school. The — THE squad was soon cut to twenty-five men, out of which eight were letter men, the rest yet to prove their worth. The line consisted throughout most of the season, of the following: Cavanaugh, E. Hughes,. Herod, Matthews, Rogers, Douglas, Crumbly, Eibel, Jansen, Lenoecke, Feightner, Sotock, Sutherland, Elser, and Stringfellow. The backfield was composed of such stars as the Shay brothers, Pat Mohardt, English, Hughes, Mascher, Link, and Treadway. This made a very formidable team and it was much feared by all. Capt. Cavanaugh, left end on the Tornado, is deserving of much praise for the way in which he lead the team. Cavy could always be depended on to get his man and someone else’s if necessary. He had a knack of catching passes, that is seldom seen on high school teams, coupled with brains. He was selected on the All-State team. M. Hughes, who became famous as a place kicker and punter played consistently throughout the season. His ability to kick was a source of much trouble to Emerson’s opponents. Morrie was All-State fullback. Pat Mohardt, flashy halfback of Emerson, earned a goodly reputation for himself by smashing the line, hurling passes and circling the ends. Pat was a consistent player throughout the year and received honorable mention on the All-State team. Joe Shay, captain-elect, and half back, was a find of the season. Joe was a clever runner and had lots of fight. We look for big things from Joe next year. Douglas and Hered, guards who played in every game were always breaking through the opponent’s line to throw them for a loss. On the defense they were nigh impregnable. Ed. Hughes, a Freshman, and Frank Crumbly, of Kansas City, were the deadly tackles who kept the wall of the Tornado noted for its strength. Tackling with a viciousness that is born of determination they made quite a name for themselves. Matthews at center played a commendable game and was noted for his fighting spirit. He was down under punts almost as quick as were the ends. His passes were always accurate and he deserves much credit. Jim Shay, the general of the team, was always there with the right play when it was needed. Shay’s cool head, and quick judgment soon earned him quite a reputation. Wood, the big boy from the farm, played a wonderful game throughout the season. He played in the backfield as well as on the line. Eibel, the slim right ender, proved a whirlwind on both defense and offense. He had the ability to snatch passes from out of nowhere and get away with them. Other men such as Rogers, Lenoecke, Stringfellow, Jansen, Feightner, Sotock, Sutherland, and Elser on the line were of invulnerable aid during the season, as were Link, Treadway, English and Mascher in the backfield. .— Eighty-five THE Much praise must be given Coach Venkeer for the time that he spent with the team. He worked daily to a point of exhaus¬ tion, neglecting his home and family while he stayed with the team. He has now turned out three championship teams at Emerson so to him should go much glory. The second team, composed of all-class material, and future stars, deserves honorable mention for the aid that they gave in the shaping of the varsity. Concluding with praise to the fans who stayed with the team through all its " ups and downs,” supporting it rain or shine and bringing fame tp Gary through its sportsmanship. EMERSON-SHERIDAN, SEPTEMBER 27 Emerson opened its Indiana schedule by traveling to Sheri¬ dan, to play the fast Sheridan football team. This was a real battle from the kick-off until the final whistle blew. Neither team having had much advantage, they kept the fans in a frenzy of excitement. Time and again Emerson would stop Sheridan only to be stopped in return. Emerson’s points were the results of two per¬ fectly executed place kicks by Morrie Hughes who played consis¬ tently thruout the whole game. In the last quarter Hughes punt¬ ed to the Sheridan 37-yard line, where Gunn the halfback of Sher¬ idan’s team, ran sixty-three yards for a touchdown. Emerson fighting to preserve a record of three years, then broke up the try for goal and t he score remained 6 to 6 to the end of the game Emerson ' s team deserve credit for their courage and their AN— Eighty-six determination. Capt. Cavanaugh, Douglas, and Crumbly on the line and the backfield luminaries, the Shay brothers, Hughes, Mohardt and English seemed to be Emerson’s main reliances when ground was needed. EMERSON-ELWOOD, OCTOBER 4 On the following Saturday, the strong Elwood team, backed by 500 rooters, journeyed to Gary to try and avenge their two previous defeats at the hands of Emerson’s fighting, smashing, rough riding team. Emerson received the ball on the kick-off and by a series of the trick plays and line smashes, carried the ball into Elwood’s territory. Pat Mohardt smashed through the line for a touch¬ down. Morrie missed the try for point. Elwood braced and there was no more scoring until the second quarter when Morrie drove the ball between the goal posts for three points. The half ended in Emerson’s favor, 9-0. The second half found the two teams fighting hard with neither having any advantage. Elwood had a fine team and de¬ serves much credit for the improvement over the preivous years; but Emerson was too fast for them. Score at end of game: Emerson, 9: Elwood, 0. EMERSON-FORT WAYNE, OCTOBER 11 For the third game of the season, Emerson’s team and a tr.ain load of backers traveled to Fort Wayne, where the old Gold and Grey ran, passed and smashed it’s way to victory. Emerson struck their stride and completely bewildered the strong Centralites. At then end of the first quarter the score was THE 14-0 due to Emerson’s formidable work. The second quarter was more like a track meet than a football game with Emerson gathering in 23 more points for a total of 37-0. The second half was a repetition of the first, Emerson show¬ ing the effect of the brilliant training they had received at the hands of Coach Veenker, and a good deal of hard work. Line bucks, end runs, short and long passes, all worked equally well and with the subs (second team) playing a great deal of the game, Emerson gathered in a grand total of 77 points while Central held the goose egg. This was the highest score ever run up by any Gary team since the two High Schools, Frobel and Emerson, have been in Gary. EMERSON-WABASH, OCTOBER 18 Emerson next traveled to Wabash to battle the highly reputed Wabashians. This was picked by critics to be a gruelling battle. The winner to make a strong bid for state honors. Pat Mohardt slipped through tackle for a touchdwon on the second play of the game. Hughes added another point with a neat place-kick. The next touchdown was made in the first quarter, when Joe Shay threw a thirty yard pass to Cavanaugh who raced over the goal line for six more points. Hughes again came through and made the score 14-0. In the second quarter, Emerson netted seven more points by a long pass to Eibel and another kick by Hughes. Knee of Wabash, came through with a drop kick for three points which made the score 21-3. Emerson started the second half with a rush and Joe Shay » ‘E” .. Ig broke through tackle for a touchdown and missed the kick. Both Emerson and Wabash made touchdowns in the last quarter and the game ended with the score 35-9 with Emerson again holding the grand sum and Wabash holding the sack. EMERSON-MANUAL, OCTOBER 25 Manual of Indianapolis on the afternoon of the 25th, came, saw, and were conquered by the invincible Gold and Grey of Emerson. A combination of passes and line smashes was responsible for Emerson’s victory over one of the barriers in Emerson’s race for the State Championship. The ability to take the breaks, and to block and intercept passes was turned into points until at the end of the first half the score was 20-6 with Emerson having the best of it. Manual was unable to accomplish much until the whole Emerson second team was inserted into the fray, then they gained on short passes and aided with a few breaks, they shoved the ball over on the last down for six more points. Emerson clearly showed their superiority in the second half by scoring four more touchdowns and four points for kicks after the touch¬ downs and the game ended with the score 48 to 12 with Manual holding the dozen. EMERSON-HAMMOND On the first of November, our ancient rival, Hammond, traveled to the city of steel and football, to take the measure of the Emerson champs. More than five thousand rooters packed the stands to see this game. ■» r M= THE Hammond received the kickoff and started a strong offensive which gained two first downs in succession. Emerson braced and an exchange of punts gave Emerson the ball on Hammond’s twenty-yard line. 1 hen Morrie Hughes came through with one of his now looked for place kicks and gave Emerson the mar¬ gin of three points. That ended the scoring for the first quarter. In the second quarter Hammond’s safety man misjudged a punt and as the hall rolled over the goal-line, Capt. Cavanaugh flashed past the Hammondite and recovered the ball. Emerson rooters went wild while a pall of gloom settled over the Ham¬ mond fans. The rest of the first half was replete with thrills as both teams played wonderful football. Hammond’s big chance to score came in this quarter when an attempted field goal went wide. Morrie added another 3 points in the last quarter when he place-kicked another goal. The game ended with Emerson hold¬ ing a lucky thirteen and Hammond holding something resembl¬ ing a doughnut. EMERSON-FROBEL, NOVEMBER 8 With the county, city and northern Indiana titles at stake, Emerson and Frobel came together on Saturday, November 8, in one of the hardest and most gruelling battles ever staged be¬ tween the two schools. It was a bright day with a strong wind, and long before the game started, the stands were filled with a seething, yelling mob of people, bands blared forth in their school music, people sang, cheered and roared. Frobel came on the field at 1:30 amid the cheers of the loyal Frobelites. Emerson ■ came a few moments later and pandemonium broke loose on Emerson side of the field. After a few minutes of signal running both teams lined up for the kick off. Emerson had won the toss and elected to kick. At 2 o’clock Morrie Hughes kicked to Perotta on Frobels 19-yard line. Frobel kicked and Emerson started down the field. Line plays were of little avail against Frobel and so Emerson started an aerial attack. With both teams smashing the line and stopping the men before they got started Emerson and Frobel both kept exchanging punts until Emerson gained possession of the ball on the Frobel 40-yard line. Hughes and his well trained foot were called upon at this point and he place-kicked from the 45 yard line, every one held their breath and followed the ball with open mouth and wide eyes, until it passed between the goal posts then a calm followed all around the field only to be broken a second later by the exhultation of Emerson rooters who went wild. More hard fighting and the quarter ended with the ball in Emerson’s possession on Frobel 4-yard line, and the score 3 to 0. The second quarter was a period of driving, smashing play. Emerson kept the ball down in Frobel’s territory most of the time and always forced Frobel to punt on the third or fourth down. Passes from Joe Shay to Jim Shay and Pat Mohardt provided thrills a plenty and gained considerable ground for Emerson. The half ended with the ball in Emerson’s possession on Frobel’s 15-yard line. Score: Emerson, 3; Frobel, 0. THE The second half opened with Frobel kicking. Hughes punted on the first play and Emerson gained possession of the ball on Frobel’s 40-yard line. A series of passes and line plays took the ball into Frobel’s territory. Emerson was then penalized 35 yards on two successive plays. ' Hughes punted to Frobel and Eibel thinking the ball had hit a Frobel player picked it up and ran across the goal line but it did not count. An exchange of punts and Emerson had the ball on the 40-yard line, Jim Shay threw a 14-yd pass to Cavanaugh who side-stepped and plunged his way to the goal line. Hughes missed the try for point. Score, 9 to 0. The ball was kicked by Emerson and the quarter ended. The fourth quarter was a repetition of the others with Emer¬ son putting in a lot of substitutes and keeping the ball in Frobel’s territory most of the time. The game ended with the ball on Emerson’s 23-yard line as the result of a Frobel punt. So ended one of the classiest games ever seen on Gleason Field between two scholastic teams. Score: Emerson, 9; Frobel, 0. Frobel must be given credit for their fighting spirit and their team, but it was Emerson’s ability to complete passes and open holes in the line that won the game for Emerson. Every man on Emerson’s team deserves credit for the fight and determination that he put into that game. Emerson completed 8 out of 20 passes for 135 yards while Frobel completed 1 out of 12 for 20 yards, that tells the story of Emerson’s victory. . EMERSON-SOUTH BEND, NOVEMBER 22 Emerson traveled to South Bend for the final game of the season. With victory would go the State Championship and revenge for the tie game of the previous year. A large number of fans made the trip and so Emerson was well supported. Using a swift moving aerial attack combined with a ground gaining, line smashing, and end running avalanche the Golden Tornado made its debut in the Notre Dame stadium. Within two minutes of play Emerson scored by Morrie Hughes place-kick from the 45-yard line. After executing a few passes, and line bucks by Mohardt and Hughes, the ball was car¬ ried to the Benders’ three yard line where Hughes carried it over and also kicked for point. Opening up the bag of tricks and smothering the South Bend team with their cyclonic attack the ball was again taken into their territory and Pat Mohardt took the ball over making the score 16 to 0 at the end of the half. The breaking through of Emerson’s line time and again to throw the Benders for a loss featured the third quarter. Neither Emerson nor South Bend scored in this quarter but when the fourth quarter began Emerson again showed her superiority. Joe Shay intercepted a pass and ran 40 yards through the entire team of Benders for a touchdown, and Hughes kicked goal. Venkeer soon began sending in substitutes and every man who made the trip got in the game. Score at end of game: Emer¬ son, 23; South Bend, 0. —FRANK HERROLD. ’25.

SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT .31 Emerson . .18 BASKETBALL, ’24-’25 When Coach Veenker issued his call for aspirants to the Emerson basketball team twenty candidates came forth for the first practice. Many men were yet playing football and would report later. Hopes were low as there were no letter men back for this year’s team and this meant a team of new material. By the opening of the schedule, Veenker had cut the squad to fifteen men. This was later cut to nine men. The schedule was an extremely difficult one and much credit must be given the team for their determination and loyalty. Four letter men will be back next year. Joe Shay, the diminutive forward played consistently throughout the season. Joe’s ability to handle the ball as well as to drop it in the basket won him a place on the all-sectional team. Joe has two more years and should make good. Wayne Thompson who played during the early part of the season, was overcome by illness and so could not finish the schedule. Al. Goldman, elongated forward, had little trouble in hitting the hoops. It was Al’s last year but he made quite a name for himself. Eibel was fast and clever, seldom outjumped at center, he had the knack of sifting through the defense and scoring from under the basket. Cavanaugh, who had played the previous year, until he was taken ill, came back and with his coolness and judgment ac¬ quired from experience, played a big part in Emerson’s victories. Link and Wood at guard were almost an air-tight combin¬ ation. Link with his fight brought much commendation for him- m Ninety-three THE self. They would both take a turn every once in a while to go into the enemie’s territory and drop in a counter. Both received honorable mention for the all-sectional. Allison, a mid-season find, shows promise of developing into a fast heady plaVer. EMERSON-LOWELL, 46-14 Emerson opened the season with an inexperienced team, having had only a few weeks’ practice before the opening of the season. 1 hey soon showed their superiority by dropping in basket after basket which was the result of smooth running team work, (ioldman was high point man with eight baskets. The game was soon “on ice " and Emerson emerged victorious from their first encounter. EMERSON-LAPORTE, 31-41 This game on the local floor proved to be very unfortunate for Emerson. Dale Wells, diminutive forward of LaPorte proved to be the downfall of Emerson, scoring twenty-nine of his team’s forty-one points. Emerson’s erratic playing in this game was a surprise to local fans. EMERSON-EAST CHICAGO, 26-29 Emerson seemed to have fallen into a slump as the result of lack of co-ordination. Coach Veenker could not find the right combination and the game was another proof that the East Chi¬ cago team knew that they had played a game of basketball, al¬ though the score does not indicate such. Ninety-four EMERSON-LAFAYETTE, 37-41 Coming back to form after a short vacation, Emerson sur¬ prised Lafayette by their clever guarding and passing. Lost on the big Purdue floor at first, Lafayette forged into the lead and at half time led 20-19. The second half found Emerson working the ball time after time under the Lafayette goal only to miss the basket. With the score 37 to 37 Lafayette sank two long shots and the curtain dropped on Emerson again. EMERSON, 31; FRANKFORT, 46 Falling before the unerring shooting and passing of the Frankfort five, Emerson lost its fourth straight victory, 46-31. The all-state combination of Frankforts proved the undoing of Emerson. Fighting with their backs against the wall, Emerson would creep up to within a few points of Frankfort and then they would drop back again. Thompson gathered the most points for Emerson, while Cummins of Frankfot gathered 22 points aided by Spradling with 18. EMERSON, 45; HAMMOND, 18 Losing the jinx w ' hich had followed them most of the season Emerson broke forth into an avalanche of field goals that brought them victory, 45-18. It seemed as if the right combin¬ ation had at last been found as Emerson rolled up point after point. Shay lead the team with 17 points. It looked as if Emer¬ son had broken the trance in which they had been wandering for so long. i THE EMERSON, 19; FROEBEL, 32 Playing on the Armory floor, Emerson received one of the worst defeats of the season at the hands of Froebel. It was the third time in the history of Emerson that Frobel had beaten us in basketball. Emerson opened the scoring with a free throw. At the half the score was 11-3 in favor of Frobel. Emerson played a better game the second half but could not overcome the big lead and the game ended with Emerson on the short end. EMERSON, 20; WHITING, 18 Traveling to Whiting, Emerson copped the banner by the close score of 20-18. The score in no way showed Emerson’s superiority though, as time after time Emerson missed easy shots, under the basket. Nevertheless they came back with an¬ other piece of bacon for their slaughter house. EMERSON, 65; CROWN POINT, 17 Plunk! Plunk! Plunk! was heard as Emerson netters drop¬ ped the ball in from all over the floor. Emerson won its second consecutive victory by their fighting spirit and ability to hit the hoops. The Pointers never had a chance and when the gun barked for the finish Emerson had a total of thirty field goals and five free throws. EMERSON, 50; SOUTH BEND, 31 The job of playing host to the Benders and at the same time keeping the bacon at home, gave Emerson the initiative to loosen their bag of tricks and put a few of them into use. By the end of the game the score was proof of Emerson’s superiority. . EMERSON, 24; HAMMOND, 28 A complete reversal of form on the part of the Emerson team caused their downfall, but only after a bitter contest. Fight¬ ing until the gun cut off all further chance of victory Hammond had completely upset the dope and broken our string of victories. EMERSON, 39; CROWN POINT, 9 Crown Point stormed the halls of Emerson in a vain hope of avenging the loss of the game a few weeks before; but again the spirit alone could not win and Emerson emerged victor. EMERSON, 29; WHITING, 25 Brilliant and determined playing on the part of the Gold and Grey, brought Emerson a hard-earned victory in the East Side gym. Eibel gathered in a total of eleven points which helped to put Emerson in the lead and to keep us there. EMERSON, 28; SOUTH BEND, 27 Traveling to South Bend to engage themselves in battle, Emerson rose to the heights of victory by such a close margin that many fans didn’t know they had won. South Bend had been having the edge all through the game and with five seconds to play were leading 27 to 26. Cavanaugh with a coolness ac¬ quired through experience grabbed the ball and shot from the middle of the floor, the ball hanging in mid-air while the gun was shot, dropped neatly through the basket for two points and Emerson won by the narrowest of narrow margins. Ninety-five EMERSON, 36; FROEBEL, 35 Before 2,500 raving fans who packed the Armory, Emerson fought an up-hill battle and secured revenge for their defeat earlier in the season. It was the greatest battle ever played in the Armory and kept the fans in suspense until Joe Shay dropped in the final basket and the game was over. Shay and Eibel were the heroes of the battle, but such fighting as the whole team showed could not be beaten. EMERSON, 26; GOSHEN, 24 This being the last game before the tournament and Emer¬ son’s first game with Goshen, the Gold and Grey was anxious to show Goshen what they could do. The result was another strip of bacon to add to our already large supply. Emerson com¬ pletely outclassed them and the result was inevitable. EMERSON, 26; ELWOOD, 47 Elwood played host at this game but was not very con¬ siderate of their guests and took more counters than they allowed their guests. Virgil, Elwood’s center, proved his ability to hit the basket when he scored 24 points. Cavanaugh was out of the game with a bad ankle or maybe the score would have been dif¬ ferent. Who can tell? TOURNAMENT EMERSON, 40; HOBART, 4 Playing most of the time with the second stringers, Emer¬ son had no difficulty in hitting the hoops and in working the ball down the floor. It was good practice and accustomed Emerson to the large floor. This game put Emerson in the semi-finals. EMERSON, 23; EAST CHICAGO, 20 Emerson opened the scoring with a free throw. East Chi¬ cago tied the score. It was six minutes before either team could score, then Joe Shay looped a short one, followed by baskets by Cavanaugh, Wood and Eibel, and Link counted from the foul line, making the score 10 to 1. The half closed with the score 10 to 6. In the second half baskets by Shay, Eibel, Goldman and Allison made the score at the end of the game 23 to 20. Emer¬ son was now ready to enter the finals. EMERSON, 18; FROEBEL, 31 Fighting for the right to the Sectional championship and the right to represent Gary in the regional tourney, Emerson and Froebel clashed in the final game of the sectional. Froebel opened the scoring with a field goal but Emerson soon overcame this when Shay and Link each counted from the field putting Emerson in the lead, 4-3. Followed closely by baskets by Shay, Cavanaugh, Eibel and Wood, Emerson jumped into a 13 to 5 lead Cavanaugh made another and by the end of the half the score was 15-13, Emerson leading. Froebel opened the second half with a slashing drive that netted them point after point. Eibel and Matthews were the only ones to make counters for Emerson and the game ended with Froebel taking the championship with a 31-18 score. —FRANK HERROLD, ’25. Ninety-nine THE “E’ SWIMMING Emerson’s swimming team is rapidly coming to the fore, and is receiving much attention from coaches of other schools. Last year’s swimming was on an experimental basis and the competitors were only awarded a minor “E”, Swimming has since been voted a major sport and all who place first or second in any meet are awarded a major letter. The team this year is composed of excellent material and only four men will be lost by graduation. They are Ralph Meh- ler, all-round aquatic star, who made a name for himself in the dashes; Haven Jones, another dash man who clipped the fins from Neptune; and Morley Crowthers and Joe Van Cleave, who performed with skill on the spring board. These four men could always be counted on for points in any meet. The other men who composed Emerson’s team of ’25 were Hallas, Ward, Maul- titz, Davis, Tittle, and Shaar. These men all have one or more years of competition and should distinguish themselves. Fred Taylor, veteran swimmer and manager of the team, has ably assisted Coach Sparks during the illness of Coach Braesamele and on the return of Braesamele still retained the position. Fred was a varsity man of ’24 and the team has profited by the experience he gained in active competition. While Emerson has had several meets this year, the ones that are most eagerly awaited for are the County Meet, at East Chicago, and the State Meet, providing one is held. Swimming, while indulged in by almost everyone, seems to be poorly supported by the student body. In future years we should all support the team as we do football and basketball since it is now recognized as a major sport. On February 7 just after the new semester started the team went to South Bend, losing the meet, 23-45. Mehler, however, had the distinction of being high point man with 12 points to his credit. The team next journeyed to Hammond, February 27, this time under Coach Sparks, due to the illness of Coach Braesa¬ mele. Emerson won the meet by a score of 28-26. Ward and Mehler tied for high points. The very next day. February 28, Emerson again swam against South Bend in the Gary Y. M. C. A. pool. They won this meet easily to the tune of 39-20. Again Mehler was the high point man. Three weeks later, March 20, Emerson again swam against Hammond. This meet was also held in the Gary Y. M. C. A. pool. After a very hard contest Hammond managed to tie Emer¬ son with 27 points. On April 3 the Emerson team encountered the Froebel mermen in their own tank. Flashing fins and cutting the water with terrific speed, Emerson gained all but two events: the back- stroke and the plunge. Crowthers and Van Cleave exhibited su¬ perb form in winning the diving. This being Joe’s first year of diving he is rapidly making a name for himself. Mehler again showed his superior ability by collecting a total of fourteen out of the forty-one points. Maltitz and Ward also won firsts in their events. Emerson is now favored to cop the county meet which will be held April 17. m One Hundred One Schedule Emerson at South Bend, February 7. 23 45 South Bend at Emerson, February 28. 20 39 Emerson 28 at Hammond. 26 February 27.

One Hundred Two § THE Outside of the State Swimming Meet which is to be held at Columbus, Ind., on May 8, the County Meet is the biggest meet of the season. It was held April 17 at East Chicago. A list of five teams were entered in this meet: Emerson, Froebel, Ham¬ mond, East Chicagb, and Whiting. The Emerson team showed its usual ability and won the meet with a total of 32 points with its nearest opponent, Ham¬ mond, with 23 points. Van Cleave and Crowthers had their usual form and took first and second places, respectively, in the diving event. Maltitz also showed his prowess as a swimmer when he lost a half lap by interference then made it up in the last three laps of the 223-yard free style, the race which he was swimming, thereby winning that race. The boys of the Emerson team who won a first or a second place in the County Meet are eligible to go to the State Meet in May. —FRED TAYLOR, ’25. nnTHE “E” m TRACK (Notice: A complete record of track eve nts is impossible because this was sent to press on April 3, 1925.) Track practice this year began in mid-winter, even before the beginning of the basketball season. Twice a week Glenn Rearick, ex-Emersonian and track star of Michigan University, took the squad on cross country jaunts. The boys practiced in¬ dependently during the remainder of the week. When the official basketball season closed, Coach Veenker took the helm and intensive work on the small track began early in March. The first meet attended by our boys was the Inter- Scholastic Meet at Northwestern University. Here Bob Ray, diminutive brother of the famous “Joie” Ray, surprised all by finishing fourth in the mile run. Among the veterans remaining from last year’s team, and with whom Veenker expects to build a championship team are Shirk, Mascher, Morrie Hughes, Link, Henderson, Ed Hughes, Matthias, Abrams, De Long, McCall, Pritchard, Eibel and Mat¬ thews. 1 he Second Annual Invitational Meet assumed greater pro¬ portions than those which attended the initial meet of this nature last year. Many new schools and scores of new runners ap¬ peared this year at Gleason Field. The schedule is: Apr. 18—Froebel Class. Apr. 25—Emerson Invitational. May 2—Chicago Heights. May 9—? May 16—Sectional. May 23—State. June 6—Stagg. June 13—Mooseheart. —BILL HENDERSON, ’25. ■ THE BASEBALL On the 25th of March, Coach Brasaemle issued his first call for baseball candidates. In answer to this call forty likely candi¬ dates came out for the first practice, which was a talk on the fundamentals of the national sport, followed by romping around the diamond in order to loosen up the muscles. The candidates were made up of previous class league play¬ ers and a few veterans from last year. The veterans were “Lore” Cavanaugh who chases flies; Johnny Sotock, our main reliance on the mound; Deac Wood, elongated first baseman and Pat Mohardt. Prospects are good this year and Emerson should have a “great season.” The schedule is composed of some of the hardest teams in northern Indiana. The class league will have many bitterly contested battles this year, with the Seniors favored to cop the pennant because of their experience. The class leagues are valuable because they mould the players for the future varsity teams. Alumni at Emerson. Hammond at Emerson. Emerson at Whiting East Chicago at Emerson.

Miss King and Miss High¬ way, the hockey and basketball instructors respectively, are to be congratulated on their success in these two activities. Before choosing the various class teams, the coaches divided the large number of entries into many small teams. Many inter¬ esting games were then played, preliminary to the regular inter¬ class tournaments. In this manner, the best possible teams were selected to represent the respective classes. The games that composed the inter-class hockey tourney were as follows, and regardless of the two tie games, the Juniors were declared the champions: Seniors 1 . Sophomores 0 2nd half—goal scored by Violet Bergman Juniors 1 .Freshmen 0 1st half—goal scored by Lucille Scofield Juniors 1 ... ; .-. Seniors 0 2nd half—goal scored by Lucille Scofield Sophomores 0.

ROSTER OF SCHOOL PARTIES SOPHOMORE DANCE The Sophomore class took pity on the poor dance lovers and we take off our hat to Miss Garber and her committee for giv¬ ing us the best time we’ve had in months. This all happened on January 17, and we’ll not forget it soon. The decorations were carried out in roses and the confetti was given out concealed in the center of rose confetti sprinklers. Won’t we always remember the subdued light, rambling roses, confetti en roses, punch (the best) and no sitting out of fifth dances (we know one person who will appreciate THAT). We’re waiting to see what you’re going to do for your prom next years, Sophs f MILITARY BALL Military balls don’t come often, but that’s all the more rea¬ son why we appreciate them when they do come. On March 20 we were all feeling like a dance and regardless of uniforms and the fact that in the grand march everyone was out of step but us, we had one glorious evening. The decorations were made beautiful with flags as an R. O. T. C. Hop should be, the music was perfect and the punch, well, all we can say is that there was not enough of it. It was TOO good. But we ask you—Is it nice to go to wild places, do wild things and see wild people after a dance? We know the guilty ones, so you don’t have to ’fess up. JUNIOR PROM We always look forward to the prom more than any other dance of the year, and we never have been disappointed. But this year we were more than excited when we stepped into the gym! Could it possibly be the old girls’ gym ? There is no doubt that the Juniors worked for that event, for the decorations were a perfect representation of an old fashioned garden with gorgeous stalks of hollyhocks growing everywhere. It was beautiful and the Juniors owe their idea to a scene from the musical play, “No, No, Nannette.” The favors and programs all carried out a sweet old-fashioned idea and we all feel as though it was just a perfect evening spent in a perfectly deco¬ rated gym. SENIOR FAREWELL The Senior Farewell is always an important event, for we have with us again many of the alumni, who are home from school and it seems like old times to have them back. As yet all plans have not been made for the Farewell, how¬ ever, the decorations will be carried out in the class colors, blue and gold. If the music is as good as the class had for their prom last year, we’re anxious for June thirteenth to come, not only be¬ cause it means the class of school, but because it will be our last and best school dance.

One Hundred Fifteen One Hundred Sixteen BOARD OF CONTROL THE “E” BOARD OF CONTROL The annual election of the members to the Board of Con¬ trol was held on the first T uesday after the first Monday in November. The Citizen Party waged a successful campaign under the leadership of their manager, Mr. Goldman. The members elected to the Board are as folows: Mr. Aid- rich, president; Mr. Lutz,- vice-president; Miss Sotock, girls ' yell leader; Mr. Bench, boys’ yell leader. Class representatives are: Miss Shaner. senior girls’ representative; Mr. Jerome Smith, senior boys’ representative; Miss Heinrich, junior girls ' representative; Mr. Weaver, junior boys ' representative; Miss Rita Ransel, sophomore girls ' representative: Mr. Mathias, soph¬ omore boys representative: Miss Gourley, freshmen girls’ rep¬ resentative; and Mr. Edward Hughes, freshmen boys’ representa¬ tive. In addition the Board is composed of the class presidents and heads of various committees. Mr. Ransel, chairman of Booster Committee; Miss Maloney, chairman of Social Commit¬ tee; Mr. Deutsch. chairman of Building and Grounds Commit¬ tee: Miss Lucas, chairman of Eligibility Committee; Mr. Bart- nofsky, chairman of Athletic Finance Committee: Mr. Jones, Mr. Donahy, and Mr. Nelson. The first meeting of the newly elected and appointed mem¬ bers of the Board convened after returning from the Christmas vacation. Immediate action was taken on several school prob¬ lems and their quick solution was the result. The various committees have accomplished a great deal. The social affairs were given due consideration by Miss Maloney and her assistants. Mr. Ransel and his boosters used every possible means to further school activities and events. The well controlled monitor system and condition of the grounds prove the fine work that has been done by Mr. Deutsch and his co- workers. The eligibility of students caused a high scholastic point to be reached by that committee under the leadership of Miss Lucas. I hrough Mr. Bartnofsky and his fellow commit¬ teemen, the Athletic Finance were able to shape money matters into excellent form. I he organization and work accomplished owes its success not only to the capable officers, but also through the guidance of our history instructor, Mr. Carlberg. James Aldrich, ’25. H, S. AUDITORIUM LEAGUE The Emerson High School Auditorium League has proven, during the past year, to be one of the most important and efficient school organizations that has ever been formed in Emer¬ son. During the six years in which the League has been or¬ ganized, never before has such seriousness and productiveness been shown in the holding of its meetings as this year. The purpose of the league is to “promote interest in debate, oratory, declamation, parliamentary usage, topical discussions, current events, writing and so on, by making the widest possible use of the auditorium stage and platform on the part of the pupils themselves.” It was very fortunate for the League that all the offices were occupied by capable and industrious students. The program, critic, booster, recommendation, and property committees gave good accounts of themselves by the programs that were pre¬ sented. One of the League’s greatest by-products, the declamatory team, went to Froebel and “copped” first place. It was a true reflection of the abilities of Olive Gustin, our representative, who declaimed, “A Soldier from France,” and won the highest honors. The other representatives of the League were Cath¬ erine Sprowls, Irma Snowden, and Leonard Boynton. Another by-product, the debating team, made a good show¬ ing for itself in the annual debate with Froebel. Although our team lost they held the Froebel debators to a two to one decision. The Emerson team consisted of William Seaman, William Deutsch, and Imogene Campbell. The question for debate, which is a very “live” one, was: Resolved: The Child Labor Amendment should be ratified. Emerson had the negative. During the past year the League presented plays that were in every way worthy of presentation as annual class plays. Of the Auditorium League programs, the ones that met with the greatest approval were: Rustic scene from “Mid-summer Night’s Dream,” “Why the Chimes Rang,” “Her Old Sweethearts,” and the gala play of the year, Booth Tarkington’s “Seventeen.” As additional attractions, the Seniors of the Auditorium League presented a play, and last but not least, the circus, in which all students who have not as yet taken part in a program will participate. With such great diligence have these plays and programs been prepared by Miss Paul, that it was necessary in many instances to present them again before the community on Thursday evenings. The Auditorium League of 1925 extends a challenge to the Leagues of coming years to equal it in accomplishments. David Sachs, ’25. One Hundred Twenty-or One Hundred Twenty-t. FROEBEL-EMERSON CONTESTANTS AUDITORIUM LEAGUE DEBATE TEAM One Hundred Twenty-three One Hundred Twenty-four CHEMISTRY CLUB CHEMISTRY CLUB The Chemistry club of Emerson school was organized Oc¬ tober 10, 1925, with Haven Jones as president, Lenora Webber as secretary and Professor Warrurn as sponsor. The purpose of the organization was two-fold; first, to in¬ struct; second, to furnish a means by which Chemistry students could meet for a social hour. The first meeting of the Club was held at the Y. W. C. A. Glen Rearick gave a very interesting and instructive talk on the value of chemistry in later life. Although the club has not been as active this semester as it has been in the past, the good influence of the club has been felt by all. The Chemistry club has been an annual institution in Emer¬ son for many years, and it is the sincere wish of all Chemistry enthusiasts that this organization continue its good work. Jeanne Holland. A PSALM OF CHEMISTRY Mr. Warrurn is our teacher, we shall not pass. He maketh us to solve dense equations; He leadeth us to expose our ignorance before the class; He maketh us to work hard calculations for our grades sake. Yea, though we study ’till dooms-day, we shall learn no chemistry, The equations and odors sorely trouble us; He prepareth unbearable quizzes for us which look like enemies to us; He annointeth our cards with low grades, our work runneth over. Surely zeroes and conditions shall follow us all the days of our lives, And we shall dwell in Emerson forever. Hazel Eikenbary. One Hundred Twenty-five One Hundred Twenty -«« PHYSICS CLUB THE EMERSON PHYSICS CLUB The 1924 annual contained for the first time a write-up of the Emerson Physics club. This year the club is one of the most active organizations in the school and an activity which all the Physics students are proud to support. The club met for organization early in the second semester and elected the following officers: Charles Yarrington . President Dave Johnson .Vice-President Bee Ellen Sharp .Secretary Earl Elser .Treasurer Harry Potruff .Parliamentarian Representatives were also chosen from each of the classes to serve on the Program committee. Those who were chosen from each of the classes were : I felnuit von Maltitz . 8:15 Elizabeth Meyer . 8:15 Joe Shay . 11:15 Sam Bartnofski . 11 :15 Wm. Henderson . 2:15 Kenneth Kimmel . 2:15 The programs which these committees provided and the topics which they brought up for discussion were most inter¬ esting. Several interesting trips have been planned. Two of which promise to be the most interesting are to the Whiting Refineries and to the steel mills, but up to the time of writing none of these have been made. Mr. Pinneo from the Gary Y. M. C. A. gave a most inter¬ esting talk to the meinbers of the club at one of its early meet¬ ings. The club is a real up and coming organization and the mem¬ bers of it are deeply grateful to Mr. Holliday for the whole¬ hearted interest he has taken in it and for the great help he has been to us. Charles Yarrington, ’25. MR. HOLLIDAY, FARADAY I teach them of the cathode, About directions, line and load. And corrosion in the voltaic pile. Pascal, Newton’s laws the three, The wonders of a gravity, And yes,—the power of a smile. And inquiring minds I sow. That my students all will know, How to read the meter dial. I try to teach my level best, The world may make the acid test, And I’ll be at the trial. H. P. One Hundred. Twenty-seven .. THE . . THE CLASSICAL CLUB Among the many student organizations in Emerson School probably the best known is the Classical club. The Classical club has for its members those who have suc¬ cessfully completed a year or more of work in Latin. This club has one of the largest enrollments of any school club. For this Miss Peters and Miss Stephens can be thanked, for only by their unfailing interest has the club enjoyed the position it now holds. At the first meeting of the year, the following officers were elected: President .Jerome Smith Vice-President.Rita Ransel Secretary .Anne Volk Treasurer . Winifred Lucas Parliamentarian .Charles Yarrington Representatives were also elected from each of the Latin classes. These were: Sherwood Wirt Mary Elizabeth Fankhauser Martha Donovan Donald Van Liew Elizabeth Handley Two committees, a refreshment committee and a program committee were appointed by the executive committee, which is composed of all the officers and representatives, as follows: Refreshments—William Seaman, chairman, Isabel Lucas, Robert De Long. Programs—Janet Graff, chairman, Edmund Garich, Thora Johnston. At the meetings, which were held in the Y. W. C. A. some very interesting programs were given by the Latin students. The Club as a whole feels that this year has been one of the most successful in its history. Charles Yarrington, ’25. PSALM OF THE LATIN CLASS Miss Stephens is my Latin teacher, I shall not pass. She maketh me to study verbs; She maketh a zero in her little book; She restoreth my fright. She maketh me to recite though I know not my lesson; Yea, though I walk through a field of declensions And wade through a current of conjugations, I shall not get there! And many are with me; Her hard voice and angry looks, They frighten me. She giveth me a test in the presence of mine classmates. She useth no mercy; my grade runneth under. Surely zeroes and failures Shall follow me all The days of my life and I shall dwell in E. H. S. forever. One hundred twenty-nin COMMERCIAL CLUB Probably no department covers as much work and receives as little comment as the Commercial department. Under the supervision of Mr. White, Miss Rowe, and Miss Millard hun¬ dreds of pupils are daily taught the essentials of business life. Miss Millard and Miss Rowe have charge of the typewriting classes. Any kind of typewriting that could possibly be called for in any office is taught. The success of the annual is largely due to the co-operation of this department. Awards are given by the Underwood and Remington Companies for speed and ac¬ curacy in tests. These awards rank from certificates for thirty words a minute, to a gold medal with diamond and pearl settings which is offered for 150 words a minute. Medals of bronze, sil¬ ver, and gold are the awards between these extremes. The Gregg system of shorthand is taught by Mr. White in the Shorthand classes. Mr. White tries to give his students a good understanding of shorthand as it is dictated by the busy employers of today. Both Mr. White and Miss Rowe have charge of the book¬ keeping classes. The various transactions are carried on just as they would be in an office. This idea of teaching and giving the student an idea of the actual experience is carried out in every class possible. The other classes in this department are for commercial law, commercial arithmetic, commercial English, and salesman¬ ship. There are various inter-scholastic contests held in commer¬ cial work just as there are contests in our other school activities. This vear the contest for bookkeeping, shorthand, and typewrit¬ ing are to be held at Valparaiso. In previous years Emerson has always managed to enter a successful team. This year there is no reason why any team entered should not be just as success¬ ful as those in the past have been. Each year Mr. White plans some trip through a large con¬ cern that will be a benefit to students in teaching them how a modern business is operated. This year a trip through the offices of the large Sears, Roebuck Company wholesale stores served the purpose. Work in this department differs from that of any other de¬ partment in that a student may work on ahead of his class as far as he chooses. The knowledge that may be his is unlimited, for business methods are constantly improving through change. Jessie Beattie, ’25. THE “E’ EMERSON DRAFTING DEPT. Have you ever made the long journey up to the fourth floor of Emerson School? To one unacquainted to the mysteries of drafting the room has a formidable aspect. Long rows of flat- topped tables; many green-shaded lights; queer instruments on the walls, on the d esks, in fact all over the room, students mak¬ ing mystic lines on sheets of white paper; and the walls lined with drawings illegible to the layman’s eyes. Drafting is not nearly so bad as it looks, on the contrary, it is one of the most intensely interesting subjects offered in Emer¬ son. Training is offered in the following branches: architec tural. machine, structural, electrical, sheet metal and topograph¬ ical drawing. All these are interesting and of great value to stu¬ dents taking them. Independence of aid from others is a principle of the Draft¬ ing department, but assistance is readily given by both teacher and students when needed. Mechanical Drawing gives a sense of symmetry not easily gained otherwise. It also trains for neat¬ ness and accuracy. All these are in addition to learning to draw and interpret those drawings, also learning to use the equip¬ ment. Speaking of equipment, Emerson has one of the best equipped drafting rooms in all high schools of Indiana. This is remarkable for the department in Emerson is comparatively new. It was started in 1912 when Mr. Yeager arrived. Mr. French also teaches drafting now, and there are over three hundred students. Work in this department is not unrewarded, for Mr. Yeager has devised a system of giving letters for superior work. A regu¬ lar “E” is obtained by complying with the following conditions: Two years of drafting with an average of 90% for the fourth term. 2. One year of successful English. 3. One year of successful Mathematics. A special “E” for the following: 1. One year of drafting with an average of 95% for the second term. 2. One year of successful English. 3. One year of successful Mathematics. In each class the more expert students are appointed as¬ sistant students and they have the additional task of advising and assisting fellow-students in distress. There are three or four assistants in each class and great is the honor. The courses are arranged especially for students interested in engineering, but are of real value to any one. There are com¬ paratively few girls in the department, but those who are there enjoy the work. Do not think that all this bragging is pure conceit for in reality it is not. Emerson’s drafting department has received recognition from several colleges because of good work of for¬ mer students. It is easy to understand the reasons for Emer¬ son’s pride in this, the largest and most popular of the special technical departments in the Emerson High School. Margaret R. Dorland, ’25. One hundred thirty-three EMER-SUN Scene: Hall. Time: Friday, 11:15. What is the matter? Looks like a massacre, murder, riot, fight, or something else interesting. Thirty-nine students are all crowding to the center, waving their left hands violently and pushing furiously. Every sixteen seconds, one of them emerges, panting, clutching in his right hand an EMER-SUN. After 16x39 second s, a lone figure stands there, one hand filled with nickels, the other clutching the remains of a busy day’s circulation. Suddenly the circulation manager appears, asks “How’s sales? That’s fine. S’long.” and disappears. But to begin at the beginning: on the suggestion of Walter Stanton of the Senior class of 1924, a paper was put out at the beginning of the ’23-’24 school year. The first editor was Wal¬ ter Stanton, who was succeeded by Claude Klingaman. It was a struggle to keep the paper going the first semester, but little by little the “Emer-Sun” got a firm grasp on life. Then came the time when there appeared on the front page, “Volume II.” Clifford Hood was chosen editor to tear his hair over the paper and Joseph Taylor to help him. The paper was successful enough on the financial side to send Clifford Hood, William Deutsch, John Donahy, Rosemary Maloney, Elizabeth Meyer, and Miss Benscoter, faculty ad¬ visor, to the High School Press Association Convention at Frank¬ lin, Ind. They gained much valuable information which was in¬ corporated in the “Emer-Sun.” The paper, by this time, had acquired a definite style. At the beginning, one issue bore no resemblance to another. Now when you pick up a copy, the friendly, familiar page greets you in the business manager. The paper prospered further under his man- same type it did the last week. Joseph Taylor was the next editor with Alvin Goldman as agement. At the beginning of the new semester, William Deutsch be¬ came editor. Under his management the paper has progressed steadily. The students have become very proficient in organiz¬ ing it. A regular six page paper has been issued regularly with¬ out a break every week since the beginning of school. The two years through which the paper has passed give promise that the “Emer-Sun” will never be a thing of the past. We leave it, well established in Emerson, thanks to the help of Miss Southwick, Miss Benscoter, Miss Millard, typewriting instructor, Mr. Bates and Mr. Benner, printing instructors. May the next class establish a circulation that will not give them the “heebie-jeebies” when they attempt to find out where the money is coming from to pay for the ink used in printing the next edi¬ tion. William Deutsch, ’25. 10:15 AND 11:15 JOURNALISM CLUBS The Journalism clubs were organized in September, 1924. Under the guidance of the faculty supervisor, Miss Grace Bens- coter, the clubs were able to edit our school paper, the EMER- SUN. With the earnest endeavor of both clubs, the paper grew into a sheet of which all Emerson is proud. In addition to publishing the school paper, the clubs took up the study of the newspaper, the magazine, the short story, modern poetry, the essay, and the novel. The grand finale was a study of the college entrance requirements. With many thanks to Miss Benscoter for her excellent advice and leadership, the Journalism clubs close a most suc¬ cessful year. 8:15 JOURNALISM CLUB The 8:15 Journalism club was composed of students who graduated in February. Under the direction of the instructor, Miss Grace Benscoter, they took a large part in editing the school paper. The course of study consisted of work on the modern poetry, the essay, and the novel. At the end of the semester the mem¬ bers reviewed briefly college entrance requirements. Each month they elected officers who conducted the meet¬ ings for that month. The club was very successful, and the members gained much valuable knowledge from their course. One hundred thirty-eight m 12-B AMERICAN LITERATURE CLUB One hundred thirty-ni THE “E” EMERSON SENIOR ENGLISH CLUB On September 8, 1924, the Emerson Senior English club was organized under the direction of Mrs. Hendricks, the in¬ structor, for the purpose of studying American Literature. The first meeting place was in Room 305, the Physics lab¬ oratory, but as conditions were not conducive to writing, one of the main activities of course, the class moved to Room 305. Here the following served as the first officers: Chairman, Lois Casement; Vice-Chairman, Rachel Davidson; Secretary, Virginia Moe, and Parliamentarian, James Kann. During the first month, the constitution was drawn up and signed by all the members of the club. Monday, Tuesday, and Friday were de¬ cided upon as the meeting days. In order to reap the full benefits of the organization, a thorough knowledge of parliamentary procedure was necessary. Roberts’ Rules of Order served as the authority. The second semester’s work was devoted especially to writ¬ ing original poetry, essays, and short stories. Two of our mem¬ bers, Mary Harmon and Rachel Davidson brought us honor by winning first and second places in an essay contest. Hubert Long showed particular aptitude in writing poetry. Thus in summing up the work of the club, it may be said that many benefits and happy experiences have been derived from it. Alice Jones, ’25. 1:15 AMERICAN LITERATURE CLUB The 1:15 American Literature club under the general super¬ vision of Miss Grace Benscoter began an entirely new field of study. A constitution was drafted, officers elected, a program committee appointed, and before a month passed, the meetings were carried on with a dignity and formality that would make anyone proud to be a member. The club found interesting ma¬ terial in the field of the novel, the short story, and grammar work during the first semester. During the second semester, the club worked diligently on American poetry, and acquired a genuine appreciation of this field of literature. Throughout the entire year this has been an interesting and active organization. One hundred forty-i THE “E” THE ART DEPARTMENT The Art Department deserves special attention this year, for it has grown considerably larger and is continuing to do so under the untiring efforts and splendid instruction of Miss Ida A. Lull. This department has founded many interesting phases in the way of art, and is of great use to all school activities. All.deco¬ rations for class parties, posters, advertising the class and var¬ sity plays, the annual arrangement and illustration, and several last minute jobs are contributed by the students of this depart¬ ment. This year the poster work of the department has increased in importance. Over a hundred posters were made to enter va¬ rious State and National contests. There are many phases of art work offered in this depart¬ ment. The students entering the department are first put to work at cast drawing and shading. The next step is black and white drawings, then come color drawings, which have proved very successful this year. Students may then choose any other field to work in: such as, advanced water color, dress designing, com¬ mercial art, or clay modeling. Portrait work and work in de¬ signing stage scenery has been done by students, but this phase of the work has not developed to the extent it is expected to in later years. The department of art has a collection of paintings of flow¬ ers, which grow in northern Indiana, all paintings being made by students from “live studies.” This collection is almost complete and in future years will be worth a considerable amount of money. The Art department also has proven a great help to me¬ chanical drawing students as architectural work consists of some free hand drawing work and many students have realized this fact too late. Several of our art students have received credit¬ able mention in adanced schools and show great tendencies to¬ ward displaying unusual talent. Much of the success of the department is due to the direction of Miss Ida A. Lull who has helped us to accomplish many tasks this year.

There was an unusual interest in it this year because of three activi¬ ties that had been added in both music and athletics. The Girls’ Declamatory contest was held on Friday after¬ noon, in which Emerson was represented by Olive Gustin, with Dorothy Lakin as a substitute. These representatives were chosen from the thirty-two girls who participated in the pre¬ liminary contests. 1 . Olive Gustin 9. Grace Lane 2. Dorothy Lakin 10. Rosemary Maloney 3. Erma Snowden 11.

John Primich THE “E’ THE EMERSON R. 0. T. C. The Junior unit of the Reserve Officers Training Corps was instituted in Emerson high school, May 3, 1919, in charge of Colonel Cleary, detailed to Emerson school by the United States War Department. Colonel Cleary was succeeded by the following officers: Major Murray, Captain Ramsay, Major Edwards, assisted by Captain Bullock, and Mitchell. Following the transferring of Captain Ramsay to another post, the Emerson unit was reorganized by Major William V all- er Edwards, it was during the command of Major Edwards that the Emerson R. O. T. C. made its greatest strides, ranking as an honor school unit in the Fifth Corps area for two consecutive years. In June 1924, Major Edwards was transferred to Fort Riley, Kansas ,and Captain Harley B. Bullock, U. S. A. Retired, became Professor of Military Science and Tactics in the Gary schools. The complete U. S. Army personnel at this time is: Captain Harley B. Bullock, P. M. S. T., Sergeant George F. Robin¬ son, Senior Emerson Instructor, and First Lieutenant O. R. C. Sergeant Robert Ball, Sergeant John Walker and Sergeant Joe Weir. The new training schedule in effect during the present school year gives the student a wider scope and more comprehensive study of military subjects prescribed by the U. S. War Depart¬ ment for the Junior unit of the R. O. T. C. The advantages are that the student learn good citizenship, teamwork, obedience and respect to superiors over them either in civil or military life. The four fundamental attributes which the cadet derives from his training are: R—respect O—obedience T—teamwork C—character The qualifications required to become a member of the R. O. T. C. are : I. The student must be fourteen years old. II. A sophomore in high school. III. He must pass physical and mental tests with a good moral standing. IV. He must agree to take two years work in the course. Credits earned in the high school units are accepted in col¬ lege and university R. O. T. C. units and many former Emerson cadets are now holding excellent commissions in the various col- elges and universities. m One Hundred Forty-seven It has been stated by Captain Bullock that the War De¬ partment after its annual inspection was well pleased with the high moral character of the Emerson cadet body.

One hun¬ dred forty-four entered the second semester. The decrease was due to the new system of majoring and minoring in special work. Besides our regular sewing work the first semester, we took up a study of textiles. The semester we are studying “How to be Well Dressed,” which is a subject of exceeding interest to all of us. It gives every girl a chance to study colors and clothes which she can wear best, considering her type. The Auditorium program for last semester was a style show, “made over” garments seemed to be the leading feature. Owing to the previous Chinese influence over American styles, the stage setting was Oriental. For the month of March Miss Sherer conceived the idea of asking each table of four girls to make a crossword puzzle of all sewing words for the purpose of reviewing our textile vocabu¬ lary. The girls remodel many old garments. This gives them new and distinctive ideas, also a chance for original designing, and a chance to practice economy. The new spring styles are simple yet charming. Some of our advanced students took up the problem of making ensemble suits. Many new spring materials have b een brought into the sewing room and are being made up into very good looking gar¬ ments. The Freshmen and Sophomores are required to make the equivalent of a set of undergarments and one plain dress. The Juniors and Seniors may make almost anything they desire with Miss Sherer’s approval, according to personal ability. For the first semester final we were required to make a but¬ tonhole, sew on a button, match a true bias, darn a stocking, make a patch, and sew on a hook and eye with a buttonhole stitch. This was a big problem for girls of today, as these things of importance are often overlooked. This semester we are going to make a notebook of clippings, samples, and pictures relating to the subject “How to be Well Dressed”; also an original de¬ sign of a garment particularly suited to each student. The advancement of the sewing department is due to our most capable instructress who makes our problems very inter¬ esting. Florence Todd, ’26. . . One hundred forty-nine One hundred fifty- . . THE “E” ——. THE MUSIC DEPARTMENT “The two wings of the soul are music and love.” —Berlioz. We work, we study, we play, and we sing in music. Surely then, in its many forms, music is deserving of attention by the students of Emerson. Although the whole mass of students, generally speaking, devote only one hour per week to music, through the intensive work of listening, under skillful guidance, to some of the truly great masterpieces of music, and by the singing with an as-pure- as possible tonal quality and full harmony many lovely songs, the entire student body of Emerson receive a musical experience and training that is invaluable. This general cultural training, coupled with the splendid special openings for music study in such other activities as Music Memory, Band, Orchestra, Con¬ test Chorus, and Glee Clubs afford the Emersonians many fine opportunities. This year, Emerson School has been fortunate to have her music faculty swelled by Miss Florence Best, assistant director of Singing and Musical Appreciation, and Mr. Elmo V. Raess- ler, assistant bandmaster. The Music Memory contest list of 1925 has furnished the basis for the work dealing with musical appreciation. This list is composed of many of the most beautiful compositions—or¬ chestral, instrumental and operatic. They are the types of selections that could easily have inspired “A thing of beauty is a joy forever,” and the frequent hearing and detailed study of these masterpieces has proved both interesting and profitable. Regrettable is the fact that special glee clubs, for which there is much excellent material, have not been able to develop as fully as possible because of crowded conditions, which create unsolvable problems as to where, when, and how one can pos¬ sibly practice during school hours. However, the excellent mixed choruses have won glory for Emerson both by local and state conquests. These winners are the direct outgrowth of the regu¬ lar splendid class instruction in singing. The Annual Lake County Contest is one of the beacon lights in the year’s musical activities at Emerson, and this time our school hopes to add notches to Mr. Snyder’s famous stick, which has carved in it only commemorations of victories, by winning as many championships as the musician will allow us. These organizations—mixed chorus, boys’ chorus, girls’ chorus, and band, and an (organizations) orchestra—will partici¬ pate in the events of National Music Week—May 3 to 9. Speaking generally, this year has been a fruitful one for the department. Although it is said that art is long, but many artists are short, the musical faculty has accomplished the difficult feat of increasing our stature as artists, as far as music is concerned. —Sophia Marks ’25 m One hundred fifty-three . . . fig THE “E» 1== .. ... $ THE EMERSON BAND Gary is not only famed for its football and basketball teams but also for its band. The Emerson band is larger and better this year than at any other time. There are about two-hundred and fifty students taking Band at Emerson alone. Besides this, the main addition is the girls’ band which has about sixty members and meets two hours during the week and one hour on Saturday. This is the first year Gary has had a girl’s band and the band does exceptionally well considering the time it has been organized. The Emerson school has four very complete and good bands on which to call at any time and from these four bands Mr. War¬ ren picks the Senior or concert band. The concert band is just a trifle larger than the marching band. The concert band makes a trip to Hobart every year besides the many places it plays in Gary. The longest trip the band made last year was the trip to Indianapolis to compete in a state band contest in which the Emerson band walked away with first place. The marching band is composed chiefly of members of the concert band. It also makes many trips. Some of the- trips made this year were to the Crown Point fair and to two out-of-town football games, Fort Wayne and South Bend. The most im¬ portant trip was to Michigan City with the Spanish American War veterans in whose honor they paraded. Another instructor has been added to the band, Mr. E. V. Roesler. He teaches the boys who play reed instruments while Mr. Warren teaches the boys who play brass instruments. Every year the band has a day on which every boy, that is graduating or leaving the band for any reason, makes a speech and receives his reward for service in the band. These rewards are gold and bronze pins. The bronze pins are given for four semesters’ band work, and the gold ones are given for eight semesters’ band work. There are a surprising number of boys who wear gold pins. There are also a few who deserve a reward of another kind for being in the band for twelve and sixteen semesters. On April 18 the Emerson Band competed in the Lake County Band Contest. The contestants were to play one number of their own choice and a required number. The required number was a suite in four parts called “Don Quixote,” the first three parts being required. The Emerson Band easily won first place and received a silver loving cup while Mr. Warren, the director, received a gold medal. This is the first time in the history of the school that the band has brought a loving cup to the school. One hunrded fifty-five THE On June sixth there is to be held in Gary a Mid-West Band Contest. Bands will be sent from eight different states in the region consisting of champion bands from the states of Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, and Wis¬ consin. The winner of this contest will be considered as National Champion since there wiH be no other contests held in the country, the claim wilTnot be contested. The Emerson Band will not be required to enter the state contest because it won in the county contest at East Chicago. We owe the success of our band to two men, Mr. Warren and Mr. Snyder. We might say that Mr. Snyder is the grandfather of the band and Mr. Warren the father. In the future there will probably be three men involved in the success of the band, the third person being Mr. E. V. Roesler. —FRED TAYLOR, ’25. r - One hundred fifty-sin MR.

The class of ’25, under the direc- j tion of Louise Elinor Lynch, presented “The Piper,” by Josephine Preston Peabody, considered by many the finest poetic drama written by an American. The story is laid in Hamelin in the year 1284 and is based on the old legend which was found in that : town written on an old wall, telling of the disappearance of all the children who were led away by a Piping Man. Seventy [ students took part and entered into the spirit of the play with fine enthusiasm. Work started early on the play. Alice Webber designed the ; costumes, making colored plates for each one; Helen Garich planned the scenery for the market place in Hamelin used in the first and last acts; Rachel Davidson worked out the cross roads Scene; and Rosemary Maloney the scene in the hollow hill. Post¬ ers were made by Helmut Von Maltitz and Walter Danks, light¬ ing effects developed by Charles Yarrington and the various properties were secured by John Donahy. The first act is laid in the market place of the town of Hame¬ lin, three days after the rats have been piped away by a stranger- • man in a many-colored coat. The people have been watching a miracle play of “The Ark Preserved” and “The Last Judgment” when the Mayor appears and tells them that it is time they gave thanks to the saints for having rid them of the plague of rats. The people say the Piper was their deliverer and beg leave to have the Town Crier cry the Piper, as no one has seen him since. As the Crier ' s voice dies away in the distance, out of “the Ark steps a man wearing an animal head. He doffs his strange head-dress and stands revealed as the Piper. He de¬ mands his pay, one thousand guilders, and the Mayor and his advisor, Kurt, the Syndic, refuse to pay it. The men hold a meeting in the guild hall and when they return, laugh at the Piper’s demand, paying no attention to his warning that they will pay the debt in another way. As they pass into the Ca¬ thedral to pray they call him “a masterless dog,” and leave him surrounded by the children. The little ones beg him to play and make believe that they are mice and slowly the Piper raises his pipe to his lips and plays the “kinder-spell” and all of the children of the town, even those in bed, go running after him. The second act shows the Piper and all of his children in¬ side the Hollow Hill. Cheat-the-Devil, another of the strolling players, brings the news that Barbara, the beautiful daughter of the Mayor, the one child left in the town is to enter a con¬ vent. As the people blame the Mayor for the disappearance of all their children, he must give his child as a penance. Michael, another player, has fallen in love with. Barbara and he sends word for the Piper to come to the Crossroads and save her when she is on her way to the convent. The Piper hurries away to One hundred fifty-nir THE the Crossroads and reaches there in time to meet the people who are slowly passing by chanting dreary psalms. A merry tune soon fills the air and immediately the people begin to dance away, unable to shake off the spell of the Piper. Only Barbara is left and she now falls in love with the Piper in gratitude for having saved her. She will not look at poor Michael until the Piper gives her a love philter. Then she goes with Michael over the hills to be married. The Piper is about to go back to the children when he hears a voice calling “Jan!’’ It is Veronika, the mother of the little lame boy. Veronika begs for her child but the Piper says he will never give children back to such unkind people as those of Ham- elin. Veronika goes home saying she will “wish little Jan home until her heart break.” The fourth act takes us back to the market-place in Ham- elin, a changed town since the disappearance of the children. Soon a group of men bring in the Piper, a captive. The priest Anslem comes out to tell them Veronika is dying. As the Piper searches for his pipe, a faint sound of music is heard and little Jan appears piping the “kinder-spell.” Veronika is saved; all the children return, and Michael and Barbara come home. But the Piper goes on the high road to pipe the wide world over. And what do we remember of it all? Why the scene of the market-place with its quaint old town hall and majestic cathedral entrance; the Noah’s Ark and Hell-Mouth; the striking picture made by the gay costumes; the flight of the children when they Hundred. Sixty heard the “kinder-spell”; and the distracted people who lost their children. We can hear the stories of the children when they awoke in the Hollow Hill, and see the boisterous dance of the people as they came under the Piper’s spell, and enjoy again the happiness in old Hamelin when the children return. But most of all we will always remember the Piper’s quaint song— “And what do I care what else I wear If I keep my rainbow shoes.” The Cast The Piper. Michael .

The scene takes place in Fanny’s boudoir, Bantock Hall, Rut¬ landshire. The rising of the curtain discovers the Misses Weth- erells, who are discussing the expected arrival of their nephew, Vernon, and his bride, who has formerly been a Parisiene actress. The servants, who has been employed at Bantock Hall for three generations, are getting everything in readiness for their new mistress. Finally Vernon and Fanny arrive. Fanny soon dis¬ covers that the man she has married is not an artist as she had believed, but Lord Bantock; and that all the servants are rela¬ tives of hers, whom she has run away from when a child. She is very much upset and sends for George Newte, her former busi¬ ness manager. In the second act, Dr. Freemantle, the family physician, meets the new Lady Bantock. She tells him she is in trouble, and he advises her to be perfectly frank with Vernon. The Misses Wetherells, Vernon, and the doctor depart for the horse races, leaving Fanny, who has pleaded a headache, at home. Soon after their departure, George Newte arrives. Fanny tells him about the muddle she is in, and she learns of the flowery lies George has told Vernon about her family. She decides to tell Vernon the whole truth, because she can’t stand to be bossed and bullied by her own servants. However, George discourages this plan, and tells her to wait a while longer. After he leaves, Bennet and a few of the servants appear and attempt to chastise her for having “surreptitiously” summoned George Newte to visit her. She tells them that they should be thankful that he has been able to come. The third act begins with the strains of a hymn coming faintly from a distance. It appears that the Bennet family is holding a prayer meeting. Fanny and Vernon are discussing the reasons for a lord not marrying a servant. Bennet hears the conversation, and after Vernon leaves he tells Fanny that she must be a changed woman or he will reveal her family his¬ tory to Vernon at once. All through the play both the Ban- tocks and the Bennets are continually telling Fanny what a noble woman the first Lady Bantock was. A party of young ladies arrive and Fanny, determined to be mistress in her own home, orders Bennet to show them up. They are shown up and are introduced as being Fanny’s former companions. They have tea, and afterwards noisily leave to catch their train. Then comes the climax of the play. Fanny summons the Bennets, admits her relationship with them, and then discharges the entire staff. The fourth act takes place on the following morning. The Misses Wetherells, Dr. Freemantle, and George Newte have as¬ sembled in Fanny’s boudoir, and are discussing the happenings of the previous evening, and they are doubtful as to how Vernon m One Hundred Sixty-thre THE will take the news. They are surprised by the appearance of Bennet, who acts.as though nothing has happened. Then Ver¬ non appears, but he refuses to discuss the matter with anyone. He hates the thought that Fanny has been deceiving him. After the rest leave his aunts shyly tell him that the first Lady Bantock was a butcher’s daughter. He decides that Fanny should not leave him. He again asks her to marry him, and she consents. They ask Bennett for his consent, and he gladly gives it, for he feels that Fanny is at last fitted to be Lady Bantock. The entire play was staged in Fanny’s boudoir. This set¬ ting was very charming. A marble fireplace added much to the impressiveness of the scene. Over this fireplace hung the portrait of the first Lady Bantock. This portrait was painted especially for the play by Hubert Long, under the direction of Miss Lull. On account of the small number of boys needed in the cast, two boys were chosen, for each part. One group performed at the matinee, while the remaining one performed in the evening. The cast was very well balanced. Every one entered into the spirit of his part, and did his best to act accordingly. Cath¬ erine Butler, as Fanny, gave a splendid interpretation to her part. Florence Hyman and Olive Gustin, as the two maiden aunts of Vernon, portrayed their characters so well that they might have been taken for professionals. The play was given under the direction of Miss Margaret D. Paul. Its success was largely due to her untiring efforts, and her well-known ability. Alice Howard, ’25.

I N —™ —= One Hundred Sixty-four m “PENROD” “Children of the Tabel Round, Lit-tul knights and ladies we. Let our voy-siz all resound Faith and hope and charitee!” The renowned Penrod of Booth Tarkington’s stories has be¬ come known as the typical American lad of fiction. He is a real boy of this age, as Tom Sawyer was real in his. He and his gang” have succeeded in hitting the soft spot in the hearts of his readers. These Tarkington stories have been cleverly com- piled into play form by Edward E. Rose without losing any of their original humor and charm. The Sophomore class, although a very fine one, is composed of an unusually young group of students. The director, Miss Lomse E. Lynch chose wisely in selecting the comedy, “Pen- rod, which offered a wide field for the second year amateurs. The pi ay j s j n f our acts an d the scene is laid in the Scho¬ field side yard in the early summer. Penrod, the blacksheep, the trial, and the youngest member of the Schofield family, centers the scenes for all his adventures around the barn at the side of the house. Sam illiams, Penrod’s pal and co-worker in all forms of mischief, lives next door (much to the sorrow of most of the neighbors). They are ably assisted by two small colored boys, Herman and Verman. Georgie Bassett, a really angelic bov whose perfect conduct had earned for him the sardonic sobriquet the little gentleman” by his boy acquaintances, (naturallv he had no friends) and was always the cause of much cold-blooded laughter against Penrod on the part of Marjorie Jones, his “gurl ” In the first act, Margaret, Penrod’s sister, is becoming in¬ fatuated with a dandy, Herbert Hamilton Dade, a strange young man in town, whom her father said “might be a horse-thief” for all they know of him. Unfortunately this statement is over¬ heard by Penrod, who immediately takes it for a fact. Robert Williams, Sam’s older brother, is rapidly losing a life-long favor in the eyes of Margaret. Act two opens with the boys planning to disclose the most startling crimes through new-formed “detectif Agency.” As Penrod stands with an inscrutable countenance, half crouching in the most approved gun-man fashion, “altermatic” in hand, Dade appears and it is decided that he is the most eligible object for shadowing. Bob Williams, in the meantime is down-hearted, unaware of the powerful forces already set in motion to be his- allies. Mr. Schofield has become interested in some wild-cat schemes that Dade presents and has almost decided to invest. The Schofield home, in the third act, is the scene of the most unusual excitement and activity as Mr. Schofield is getting into his dress suit with some difficulty. They are going to a party and Penrod is being left in charge of the cook, Della. By means of a fake telephone call, sending Della away, Penrod and Sam are left to private maneuvers. They manage to resurrect Mr. Schofield’s gun and Penrod, quaking inside, although putting on a brave front, pulls the trigger. They hear some one fall from the window of the house, and they believe murder has been committed. Sam runs home, and Penrod is left on the scene of the crime. He then decides to leave home, and does. The Cast: In the last act the Schofields return home and not finding Pen- rod and a gun in the yard, immediately resurrect Sam and start a fiery cross-examination. Sam’s poor attempt at self-defense is put to an end when the true culprit is brought in by the hired man. When chastisement seems the inevitable course, the chief of police appears upon the scene, saying that little Penrod is the only one who had been able to see through the scoundrel Dade, who had been specializing in phoney checks and was a pro¬ fessional at working stock jobbing on small town business men. Bob Williams rushes in and informs them he has caught the burglar that Penrod shot at. All is forgiven. Margaret and Bob are reconciled; Penrod receives a note from Marjorie saying, “Your my—bow.” and the curtain rings down with Mr. Scho¬ field saying (in company with the audience). “He reminds me of myself, when I was his age!” In regard to the players, scarcely a better cast might have been chosen. Gordon Dalby played the part of Penrod so well that during the entire presentation he never lost his character. He was the main factor in making it more of a professional than an amateur performance. Sam Jones was a typical Sam creating for you the impression that the part was written for him. Maurine Fisher and Thomas White as Mr. and Mrs. Schofield come in for their share of hon¬ ors. Mary Ellen Anderson, Charles Isenberg and James Bam- brough presented a trio that would be hard to beat as Margaret, Dade, and Bob. Penrod’s play-mates Herman, Verman, Georgie, and Marjorie were fine, including the supporting class. This outstanding Sophomore play owes its success to its di¬ rector and a hard .working cast. Jim.

The Student Committee, which consisted of Harry Potruff, Joe Van Cleave, Catherine Sprowls and Mary Elizabeth Fank- hauser, was assisted by the Training department, consisting of Miss Paul, Miss Lynch, Mrs. Bell and Mr. Richardson; the Music department, consisting of Miss Applegate, Miss Greenhill, and Miss Best; and Miss Heimburg of the Gymnasium department. The student body very enthusiastically answered to the call which sounded February the nineteenth for tryouts. Thirty acts tried out and ten were eliminated, leaving twenty acts which labor ed on night after night until the great event loomed forth. The program was broadcasted from Station EHS of Emer¬ son School, which reached the hearers who were interested in the artists of Emerson school. The program opened with a very clever act called The Emer¬ son Box Office, which showed the immense crowds buying tickets for Spice and Variety. As the evening progressed many acts won the applause of the audience. The D. D.’s gaily deco¬ rated, gave very “quaint” (?) dances. “Whitestone,” with all the wisdom, with his faithful attendant “Bozo” brought forth loud laughter. The audience shook and shivered and thrilled when a grave yard with all its horrors was seen on the stage. Albert Mac Mackin again won the admiration of many people, when he played his own composition entitled “Romanesque Suite,” which consisted of five parts: (1) Lullaby, (2) Waterfall, (3) Moonlight, (4) Caprice, and (5) Beraceuse. L’Oriental was a dance given by Audrey Barr, which greatly pleased the audi¬ ence because of its grace and charm. The evening ended with a grand “cheer for Spice and Va¬ riety!” Everyone joined in on the chorus and the entire cast was seen on the stage. Spice and Variety is now an established event in the school’s activities. As time goes on may the future Emersonians respond as heartily, adding more “spice” and more “variety” as this year surely did. The cast is as follows: 1.—At the Box Office: .Helen Alice Mlodoch . ..

THE SEA The sea gnashed its teeth and Clawed with dripping fingers The blue curtain of heaven As tho’ to tear it to shreds. Perhaps—it envied the blue Security of the sky Always just out of its clutch. J. G. ADVICE Bridle quick your stinging tongue, Leave the victory paean unsung, Less your foe’s host may run, To fight again. Time again chance or fate, May put the cannon at your gate. Do not your foe berate, Leave well done. H. P. RUMOR Lo! Rumor spreads her feathered wings. And through great cities takes her flight, Evil above all evil things ’Twixt earth and sky she flies at night. At first we hear her whispers low, And stealthily she steals along, And fearfully we watch her grow Gaining in speed, in strength more strong. At night she strides the stricken land, Deftly she chooses her helpless prey, A sentinel guarding a captive band Aloft on a tower, she sits by day. Eager, her eyes glow in the dark Like molten fires in a hidden cave, Ever her tongue, like a sea-wolf’s bark Echoes alike o’er land—o’er wave. Lies,—and a little of truth she hears, And carries them off to her secret den, As a miser who sorts his gold with fears She greedily sorts the lives of men! Janet Graff, ’25. One Hundred Eighty THE KING WINTER Autumn spreads her fingers Dripping gold and silver To bathe the earth in glory For the coming of King Winter. Ungrateful winter grimly smiles Then—with his hoary breath Breathes upon the radiant Earth And laughs at Autumn’s death. With one stroke of his mighty brush He sweeps the canvas clear And with his master-hand he paints A cover for Autumn’s bier. J. G. NIGHT After Vergil Night—and the calmness of sleep Clothed the tired bodies of men, Birds with moon-silvered wings Nestled in briar and glen. Lakes like deep purple pools, Lay in the darkening shadows, Seas—no longer tossing, Rivaled in smoothness the meadows. Healing herbs of oblivion, Bandaged all eyelids in sleep; Save one—the sorrowful Dido Tossed with a wound cut deep! Janet Graff. m THE SHADOW SCREEN Grey shadows creep along the wall While I in my garden sit, Some are short and some are tall! Some crawl and others flit. But none of them are ever still, And their queer clothes never fit! J. G. RAINY NIGHTS On rainy nights when I’m abed And rain drops patter over head The great Black Wind comes stalking by With his great cloak sweeping up the sky He leads the marching hosts of rain That make such havoc at my pane Who noisily march with crooked feet All up and down the wind swept street, Ride on steeds with silver hoofs That gallop Seriously o’er the roofs, And—as they pass—I hear them shout, “Ho! Ho!”—They’ve caught some loiterers out! J. G. MR. SMITH’S PARADY Once upon a midday bright, while I pondered quite a sight, Upon many a quaint and curious test of yore— While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping. As of some one gently rapping—rapping at my classroom door. “ ’Tis some student wants his grade changed, tapping at my class-room door— Only this and maybe more.” Apologies to E. A. P. H. P. m One Hundred Eighty-c HARA-KIRI My spirit’s not so chary. But my body thinks that bury, Is another word for chaos. And that bravery’s charlatanous. I lost my job in summer, Sixteen years I ' ve been a bummer, My tether’s end is near me, And work is here to jeer me. The cops say I must labour, And I look at my keen saber, That I stumbled on one winter, Attracted by it’s glitter. Work and I are strangers, Like the wild elk and the mangers, And I hardly think that we, Could pal together and agree. So I’ve finally decided, I’ll no longer be derided. Though my body still is chary I’ll commit the Hara-Kiri. H. P. One Hundred Eighty-two NOBODY I abhor the powder puff, And kindred things uncouth and rough. These girls their beauty I detest, Hood looks—skin deep—I know by test. Perfume, frills, rouge, and paints, ’Twould warp the conscience of the saints. But I, I know the coquette’s smile, I know their every trick and wile. I could not fall for painted lips, Painted souls and patent hips. Love you say will get me yet. Silence! Wager now your bet, For I am Nobody. H. P. MISS LYNCH’S MELODY I love a melody of colors My favorites?—brown and green, From a furry soft velvet, To the metals hardened sheen. Colors, pastels, or scintillating bright, Rosy dawn and diamond studded night. 1 love the freshness of green, And the breadth of brown. And there ' s a warmth of feeling, In the willow’s grayish down. A melody of colors a kaleidoscope of tint, The shadows and the blending in the daguerreotype print. THE JUNIORS’ CREED As a Junior it is thy duty to be modest and unassuming. Uphold the principle of equality, but always be ready to voice thy detestation against being classed on the level of the Senior. Encourage the Freshman for he knows he knows not. IV. Pity the Sophomore for he is forgetting that he knows not. Pity the Senior for he thinks he knows. VI. But seek the companionship of other Juniors for they know. VII. Study with the intent to learn but learn with no definite intent. VIII. If thou winnest the Hunt, make thy victory known to each and everyone; if thou losest, raise Cain if thou art Able. IX. At the Prom conduct thyself with great solemnity, for thou art the model for grace and refinement. X. Upon entering the Senior estat e take heed that thou forget each item of the foregoing creed. Florence Hyman. HEATHEN LIFE Brahma sweeping back the night. Vishnu holding forth the light. Siva severs quick the cord. 19 Just a Hindoo mystic tale, Holding hearts in meek travail, By trimurti of visioned lords. Black magic, Indian night, Followers in the Vedra’s sight, Beneath Siva’s balanced sword. H. P. MR. RICHARDSON’S RHAPSODY I like to watch the Senate’s pranks, Elections and their vote of thanks. It truly is a mah jong sight. I like to mark the students’ grades. And have somebody pull the shades. The movies won’t stand the light. I like to watch the music test, It gives me pep and lends me zest, When music tames brawn and might. This forum makes one wondrous wise. And opens one’s latent eyes. To meteoric time in flight. Leave me with my auditory, I will wail not nor be sorry, For to me this is the right. H. P. One Hundred Eighty-three ANDERSON CLOTHING CO. Where Society Brand Clothes are Sold 561 Broadway Gary, Ind.
