V « THE DRAGON THE DRAGON The “DRAGON” Staff: The Fairmont Annual has long since won an enviable position among high school publications: yet all indi¬ cations point to the 1929 issue as surpassing previous editions. We are proud of Fairmont, its faculty, its students, its spirit, its “DRAGON. " Most sincerely yours. C. W. PLESSINGER, County Supt. of Schools. The “Dragon " is an index to the rapid development of Fairmont. The year 1920 saw a class of nine stu¬ dents graduate from Fairmont. Nine short years later sees a graduating class of sixty. This development is a challenge to all of us! It is our duty to place Fairmont among the foremost senior high schools of the state. DWIGHT L. BARNES, Supt. Van Buren Twp. Schools. Four THE DRAGON Cjfairmonf s Cjfuture 1 he number of students attending Fairmont has increased from about fifty to over three hundred in the last decade. During this expansion in pupil population, an expansion has like¬ wise taken place in its curriculum, its faculty, and particularly in its extra-curricular activities. Fairmont has set for itself a high standard in all its various fields of endeavor. By so doing it has achieved for itself an enviable position among the high schools of the county and state. But no institution can stand still. It moves either forward or backward. If Fairmont is to move forward, certain problems must, in the opinion of its principal, be solved and certain plans be outlined for its future growth. Most important among these would be a building program to overcome its crowded and unsatisfactory conditions. Housed in a building erected for one hundred and fifty students and lacking many of the facilities of a modern high school, it cannot grow scholastically or otherwise. Van Buren is rapidly being dotted by well-built and beautiful homes. The spirit of prog¬ ress and growth is seen on every hand. Why should not this spirit of progress and love of beauty be embodied in its high school building as well? This township could have and should have a model high school in its building, its equip¬ ment, and its organization. Our boys and girls have the right to expect and to receive the very best training possible in physical, mental, and moral growth. Since the majority of its students do not plan a college career, a building should be provided that would have facilities for training in the vocations most likely to be entered by its graduates. Courses should be offered in as many voca- t.onal fields as its size would justify. More should be added as its size increased. Shops and laboratories of various types should be provided so that such courses as metal working, printing, commercial art, salesmanship, auto repair, etc., could be offered. Any new building should be flexible to make possible future additions of such things as a large library, swimming pool, and additional shops. These facilities should be made available at night to those forced out of day school because of financial or other reasons. Another outstanding problem which must be solved if Fairmont is to grow is that of trans¬ portation. Bus transportation should be fur¬ nished at public expense for all students living more than one and a half miles from its build¬ ing. At the present time many students, be¬ cause of poor transportation facilities, cannot complete their education or must frequently be absent or tardy. This program may seem like a dream. Manv progressive communities have adopted such a program and plan for the future. It will cost money to be sure. But what is more worthy than the education and preparation of our future citizens? J.

ALBERT Religious Education THE DRAGON cl Art Miss Urick has made a very pleasant and successful year of Art for the 84 enrolled students this year. The Art room has been redecorated with new drawing desks and other equipment that has always been needed. Students this year are working in oil and water color painting, Batik work, which is tie dyeing, crackly work and waxing designs. They have made from these scarfs, wall hangings and covers for porch furniture. Many have taken interest in Basketry or reed and raffia work. Lettering, Sketching, with pen, pencil or charcoal, have been very interesting to the students this year. Much time was spent during Christmas time making Christmas Cards and Posters for the Christmas Bazaar. Harold Manning, a member of the Senior Class, has for three years helped with all the art work which was needed at the school. This year with a little help from Miss Urick, he did all the art work for the Annual. MARY LOUISE RICHMAN Music Unusual interest has been shown this year in all the music organizations at Fairmont. The increased demands made upon the time and energy of these students have met with an even greater willingness to serve. Poor attitude toward the work has been so rare as to be almost forgotten. All the music organizations have accomplished a very gratifying amount of work. If the commendation of the director is of any value to these students who compose these groups, they may rest assured that every individual has his highest regard and deepest appreciation. W. B.

MISS MARGERY HEDGES Secretary .MISS ETHEL CREAGER Treasurer .HAROLD ENGLE Religious Education O Courses in Religion under the County Council of Religious Education are offered for high sch ool credit one hour each week throughout the year. The Freshman Course, " Comrades of Jesus in the Abundant Life,” faces the problems of life as seen by a high school student and measures our purposes, standards, and conduct by the ideals of Jesus in a very concrete way. We study such themes as " Student Activities,” " Stand¬ ards for Social Life,” " Problems in Individual Growth,” " Home Life,” " Friendships,” etc. The Senior Course this year has been a study of " How We Got Our Bible.” Here we dis¬ covered how God has worked through men to make Himself increasingly clear to the human race, and preserved the religious experiences of each generation for the benefit of the next. We have gained a new appreciation of the Bible and of God ' s working with men. Our themes included " How the Books of the Bible Were Written. " " How the Bible Was Translated and Preserved,” " The Bible in the Lives of Men.” Next year the Senior Course will be " Jesus’ Ideals for the World Today.” In this course we shall help pupils to feel that Jesus is still working in the world today as the Spirit guides us to accomplish a Christian order, to help them to define desirable Christian outcomes in the life of the world and to feel the challenge to work with God in accomplishing them. Subjects for discussion will be these: 1. An Individual 3. High School 5. A Christian Nation 2. Home Life 4. A Christian City 6. A Christian World Nine THE DRAGON CLARK POWELL, Clerk C. H. PARSONS C. M. PHILLIPS C. T. BURSON CHESTER CRAUDER. Pres. A. W. SHOCK The Hoard of Education of Van Huren Township The year 1928 and ' 29 has had many perplexing problems for our Board of Education, and the members of our Board fully realize the responsibility that has been entrusted to them. They have devoted hours of time and thought to their task, and are ever ready and willing to face these responsibilities. A fine spirit of cooperation prevails among the personnel of our board members, and each member considers his obligations sacred. The ever increasing population of the communities in our township, together with the possibilities of annexation of certain portions, has demanded a great deal of attention on the part of our building program, but after much study and careful consideration, the building program will soon become a reality. Because Van Buren Township has the largest school system in the county unit, the board has seen fit to place Mr. Clark Powell. Clerk-Treasurer of the Board, on a full time basis to act as Purchasing Agent as well as a representative between the Board and the faculty. His services in this capacity have added materially to the success and harmony of our school system. While we can point with pride to our present schools, yet there are still higher goals to attain, and it is the desire of the Board to give the patrons of Van Buren Township a school system that will be second to none in the state. CHESTER CRAUDER, President. Ten THE DRAGON The Parent-Teachers ' Association effected an organization at Fairmont, October 10. 1928, under the direction of Mrs. Bruce Lloyd, county president, and Mrs. A. J. Barnett, parliamen¬ tarian. The following officers were chosen for this year: Mrs. Cora S. Uhrig, president; Mrs. C. Bert Miller, vice president: Mr. J. E. Prass, principal, honorary vice president: Mrs. B. H. Shroder, recording secretary: Mrs. May Wheatly, treasurer, and Mrs. Adolph Blome, correspond¬ ing secretary. Later the executive committee appointed the following heads of committees: Mrs. George S. Wheeler, Membership: Mrs. George Bolender, Publicity: Miss Helen Hartsock, Art; Mr. Couser, Music: Mrs. W. G. Haines, Hospitality; Mr. E. H. Dexter, Ways and Means, and Mrs. John S. Moore, Council Delegate. Regular meetings have been held the third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 in our audi¬ torium. The program theme has been “Know Your School. ' ' This has been outlined in meet¬ ings on extra curricular activities and social life, on musical activities, on athletics, on art and the applied arts. The association assisted Miss Moore in serving the football banquet. This proved most successful both as to numbers and to execution of all details. A column of material has been furnished for the Fairmontonian each month. A variety show to be given by the men members of the organization, under the leadership of the Ways and Means Committee, promises an entertaining social event for the spring. Though still small in numbers, the interest and loyalty of its membership promises a growing future for the Fairmont P.-T. A.

President CLASS OFFICERS BURT MOORE Vice-President LOUISE ZELLER Secretary-Treasurer MELVIN ROHR CLASS MOTTO Not finished, just begun CLASS FLOWER Rose CLASS COLORS Light Blue and Silver T iventy-one THE DRAGON The History of the Class of ’29 Just as this year’s graduating class is the largest class ever graduated from Fairmont, so it was the largest Freshman class ever enrolled at our school up to that time; it has held this record during each succeeding year. There were, at that time, forty girls and thirty-nine boys. Forty-six of these students will graduate this year (two having already graduated) with fourteen who have entered Fairmont since 1 925. The class was organized and held its first meeting September 14, 1925, electing Orville Coy, President, and Dorothy Schelling, Secretary, with Coaches Warner and Ramsey as class advisers. On September 1 2, 1926, when the class was reorganized, Melvin Rohr was elected President; Burt Moore, Vice President; Edward Kantner, Secretary-Treasurer, with Miss Hart- sock and Mr. Purdy as class advisers. In the following year we were led by President Burt Moore, Vice President Melvin Rohr, Secretary-Treasurer Louise Zeller, and advisers, Miss Wahl, Miss Fischbach, and Mr. Herr. The success of our class this year is due to the able leadership of President Moore, Vice President Zeller, Secretary-Treasurer Rohr, and our advisers, Miss Balzhiser, Miss Staver, and Mr. Purdy. Fairmont ' s cheer leaders were members of our group for three years, while Orville Coy, Earl Pomeroy, and Harry Myers, kept up the student body’s enthusiasm in athletics. During its Freshman year, the class provided yell cards for the school. Athletics have always been of the greatest interest to us, and we have been represented on the football squad from year to year by Orville Coy, Edward Kantner, George Oxrider, Robert Will, Edmond Norris, Alfred Shawhan, Fred Haas, Earl Allen, Leroy Damuth, Melvin Rohr, Russell Beckner, Otto Bass, Burt Moore, and Charles Fernwault; on the basketball squad by Alfred Shawhan. Burt Moore, Melvin Rohr, Otto Bass, Edward Kantner, and Elmer Lesher. Our girl basketball stars have been Louise Zeller, Mary Leahey, Mildred Flaugher, Geraldine Seit- ner, and Dorothy Schelling. Music, too, has received its share of our attention. Geraldine Seitner. Dorothy Schelling. l ern Berger. Dorothy Parsons, Dorothy Greenman, Norma Mann, Ethel Wisecup. Ethel Phibbs, William Deets, Melvin Rohr, David Osborn, and Mack Wisecup have been members of the Pairmont High School Glee Club at various times. Dorothy Parsons, Harold Manning, Mack Wisecup. Dorothy White, Duane Hatfield, Mary Louise Richman, Reva Allen, Eslie Routsong, were members of the chorus entered by Fairmont in the Montgomery County Music and Literary Contest. Several of our number have joined the ranks of the School Orchestra, Helen Hofferbert. violin; Kathryn Emmel, violin: Edward Kantner, trombone; Earl Sidwell. clarinet; Eslie Rout- song. clarinet; Dorothy White, drum; David Osborne, saxaphone; Ruth Sylvia, violin; Charles Fernwault, violin; Dorothy Parsons, viola, and Marjorie Taylor, saxaphone. As Juniors, the class made a fine showing in the Preliminary Literary and Musical Contest, when Florence Smithson took first place in Arithmetic. F : rances Irwin won first place in Spelling, and Marjorie Taylor won first place in Short Story. The two former girls continued into the County Contest, winning gold medals. We presented All of a Sudden Peggy " on February 1, 1928, starring Irene Stibbs and Melvin Rohr, supported by Almira Spaite, Karl Getter, Earl Pomeroy, Burt Moore. Louise Zeller, Margaret I ngle, Geraldine Seitner, Edward Kantner, and Leroy Damuth. With this glorious history in the background. I feel safe in prophesying an illustrious history for each individual of our splendid class. MARJORIE TAYLOR. T wenty-tuio THE DRAGON ])o You KnoY Him ? Walking down the side aisle, he impresses one with his appearance of authoritativeness and look of determination, given, I believe, by his little moustache. He is a short, stout man, in a gray suit, whole sole ambition seems to be in encouraging and helping others to be leaders. His impatient gestures, when speaking of idleness or lack of loyalty, bring out his real thoughts of anyone who dares to be idle or disloyal to Fairmont. His frequent corrections and ever-ready word of helpfulness, show his ambition for those lor whom he works. He has a wonderful way of arousing enthusiasm in our students, and upon several occasions has taught our cheer leaders how to lead in cheering. During football and basketball seasons, he loves to visit “Coach Warner’s’’ sections and always gives some help by words of kindly criticism or commendation. He takes a keen interest in all school activities as well as Athletics. During our prepara¬ tion for the County Literary Contests, he was with us almost every day, and helped in many ways. Naturally, he enjoys a good laugh, and loves a good story and likes to tell one. Whenever he is pleased with the students, we can hear his jolly laugh above all others. While we know he means business, and we respect him for it, we do not fear him, for we feel that he has a heart of love for young people, and we say with one voice—“All joy to you, our superintendent.’’ We often wonder whether or not this saying is right. When we think of it, do we not always give our answer “Yes?” Hard work does accomplish something. If it did not, would Herbert Hoover be where he is today? We first heard of Mr. Hoover as a small Iowa farmer and miner; if any one would have told him he was going to be President he would have laughed at them. But in 1 896 we see him reporting on mines. He was content to begin with small jobs and earn his advancement. He was put on what is known as the human engineering when he was assigned to the Belgium Relief. Herbert Hoover has won his fortune and fame by doing the jobs he did for the United States. Why? Because he worked hard to accomplish something which would be useful to him. W. W.

THE D RAG O N Junior Glass Although being second in size, the Junior Class at Fairmont takes no back seat as to its activities. This year Juniors composed a large portion of the football squad, placing Clifford Bolender, Carl Nollman, Eldon Basinger, Otho Larimer, Fred Whipp and Frank Kothman on the team. Juniors were equally predominate on the basketball squad, being represented by Eldon, Batfln.ger, Clifford Bolender, and Carl Nollman. This class was represented by Captain Theresa Buchard, Hazel Rash and Bernice Askren on the girls’ team. Not only in athletics does the Junior Class excel, but in the finer arts; the following being selected to represent Fairmont in the County Music and Literary Contest: Reading, Grace Powell; Boy ' s Solo, Eldon Basinger; Bible Reading, Virginia Shank; Piano Solo, Esther Tullis. These will compete with the representatives of Fairview in the Belmont auditorium, March 7. Junior c Play Holding the limelight in Fairmont ' s dramatics for the past year was “Nancy Ann,” a three-act comedy, presented by members of the Junior Class as their annual production. Consisting of sixteen characters and a two-room scene throughout the last two acts, the play was a very difficult one to produce. However, under the able leadership of Miss Eleanor Kiernan. head of the dramatic art department, the play was a great success, both dramatically and financially. A brief synopsis follows: “Nancy,” the youthful heroine, who has been “cowed” all her life by four elderly aunts, determines at last that she is going to make a name for herself by becoming an actress. On the night of her formal debut to society, given by her aunts, she uses a French window as a way of escape and attempts to realize her life’s ambition. Using the scene of a play which she has learned in her dramatic art course when a child, .apis to get Sidney Brian, a play producer, against his wishes, to cast her; for a part, lg she is one of a “blackmail gang, " has her arrested. Finally, after numerous J methods she convinces him of her ability. The play terminates, when he has engaged her for a leading lady for his play and for life. The entire play is agog with lively interest and enthusiasm, kept up during the second act by several chorus girls who apparently “know all,” “see all,” and “hear all,” and continued during the last act by the detective, the office boy and the four wily aunts. The following members of the class took part: Nancy Ann. Aunt Emily. Aunt Kate . Aunt Angeline . Aunt Nancy. Miss Dexter. Beth Worthington Lula Treman Billie Claridge. Jerry O’Connel. ..

These were " Russ " Creagsr (Captain) , William Atkin, Fred Blocher, Roy Blumer, Bayard Burson, Robert Dumford, Ray Hoefling, Charles Landis, Wanner McClelland and Robert McNabb. " Russ’ Bigler, " Russ " Creager, and Harry Peoples were the contributions of this class to the first team on the basketball court this season while Ray Hoefling, Roy Blumer, Robert Hutzelman, Fred Blocher and Karl Fine were our representatives on the Reserves. We also are credited with a large number of Sophomores who competed in the prelimi¬ naries of the Musical and Literary County wide contest, two of whom were placed. Mae Tinnerman won first in Girl ' s Solo, and Colleen Bushong second in Bible Reading. When the Student Council was organized the three Sophomore elects were Ray Hoefling, Howard Sylvia and Robert Hutzelman. Altogether a spirit of Fairmont pride and loyalty has been manifest throughout the year by participation in every school activity. SUZANNE MILLER.

The enrollment during the year has stayed at about the 285 maik. The faculty consists of ten teachers and three special teachers. They are as follows: Mr. H. L. Boda.Principal, Science Mr. William Nagley.Coach, Biology Mr. R. W. Stooksberry. Mathematics 7 and 8 Miss Louise Stoner. Latin, Mathematics 9 Miss Marie Comfort.English 9, Girls Basketball, Librarian Miss Osee Burke.English 7 and 8 Miss Minna Vance .Geography, Hygiene Miss Nellie Cloppert.History, Civics Miss India Stanford . Home Economics Mr. H. P. Snapp. Manual Training Miss Rachael Urick.Art Mr. Rimanoczy . Music The first school event that we had this year was the Fall Festival, which was given November 23, and was a great success with a large crowd attending. The ‘nigger baby” stand provided fun for both young and old as did the stunts in the auditorium which were presented by the home rooms. The school has been divided into clubs for the year and each one has been very active. These organizations have met the whims of all the students and cover a variety of interests. They are Dramatic, Handiwork, Journalism, Study, Story Telling, Manual Arts, Girls and Boys ' Athletic, Camera, Home Economics. Several things in the line of equipment have been added this year which has helped to make the school work more efficient and enjoyable. Included in these are pictures for the home rooms, books for the library, an orthophonic, radio, and a lathe for the manual training room. “The Belmont Mirror,” which is our school paper, kept everyone well informed during the year and issued fifteen copies. This was the special project of the Journalism Club. In the early spring the operetta entitled “Little Almond Eyes,” was given by the glee clubs. The cast was made up of twelve characters assisted by a large chorus. The operetta was directed by Mr. Rimanoczy, assisted by the teachers. The Junior High pupils took a very active interest in football, basketball and track, and had a full athletic schedule with other schools of the county. Interest was not lacking in noon games and these games were made more interesting with the silver loving cup as an incentive to play. Near the close of school. “Open House” was observed for the purpose of giving the par¬ ents a chance to observe actual class room work and also to see some of the work accomplished during the year by means of the exhibit. The ninth grade organized in March with the following officers: President .Edward Kinzig Vice President .Kenneth Vandevander Secretary-Treasurer .

They have played in all school activities. They have been larger in number, and as individuals, have played their instruments in a more finished manner. The orchestra served as one of the entertaining units of the Little Theatre Tournament. VOCAL DEPARTMENT Twenty-four voices carefully selected from the full mixed Glee Club of seventy-five members represented Fairmont in the Montgomery County Music and Literary contests. The chorus sang with unusual taste and feeling, and the social times occasioned by the rehearsals proved to be of great value to the students. OTHER ACTIVITIES Other music courses usually associated with a senior high school have been lacking this year because of the inability to schedule such classes, and because of the lack of material equipment. It is the directors hope that if he has the privilege of guiding the activities of Fairmont’s music program another year, courses in theory, music appreciation, and history of music may be offered.

Lessons THE DRAGON The fliirmont JZiterary Club The Fairmont Literary Club was organized by Miss Balzhiser for the students who were not interested in any other clubs. At its organization, the following officers were elected: Suzanne Miller, President; Marjorie Taylor, Vice President; Frances Thoroman, Secretary. The club has two major interests. The first is training in leadership, the ability to preside at social groups, to conduct the business, or to participate in the program in an intelligent, cultured manner. The second aim was to develop a taste for the best literary productions, both past and present. At each meeting, books of this type have been discussed. Entertainments and plays have been especially interesting to the members. With their faculty adviser the members attended “The Trial of Mary Dugan,” presented at the Victory theatre. Two playlettes were produced by the members during the year. In “Miss Burnett Puts One Over,” and “Two Aunts and a Photo,” the following formed the cast: Marjorie Taylor, Frances Thoroman, Betty Welsh. Frances Irwin, and Suzanne Miller. Each one connected with the association feels that a great deal has been gained from it and that the hours devoted to these meetings have been happy and enjoyable ones. SUZANNE MILLER, President. The Hand-Craft Club The Hand-Craft Club which was organized this year has been very instructive to all its members. The club officers are: President, Virginia Shank: Vice President, Helen Hofferbert; Secretary and Treasurer, Glea Gebhart. Some of the girls have made beautiful embroidered pieces and have woven baskets and made nice little compartment boxes. At Christmas time a party was held for all the members, at which games were played, souvenirs given out and refreshments served. The club has subscribed for the “Needlecraft Magazine” for the High School Library. TERESA PHELAN. Thirty-nine THE DRACON Qlfl Reserves The Girl Reserves organization has had an eventful and successful year at Fairmont. Our theme for the year was, “The Path of the Glowing Light,” from which we emphasized the meaning of our Girl Reserve Code, the qualities of a good leader, and the lovely theme of Friendship. We had a very stirring “pep” assembly held to arouse a greater interest for our Oakwood game; also the devotional program at the County Y. W. C. A., Fall Conference held at Dixie, and pantomined the secretary’s report for the year at the Y. W. C. A. The officers elected for the beginning of the year were as follows: Marion Hintermeister, President; Harriet Badgley, Vice President; Mildred Flaugher, Secretary; Esther Tullis, Treas¬ urer; Hazel Reedy, Program Chairman, and Lucille Melke, Ring Standard Committee Chairman.

Under their direction, we have enjoyed hobby groups into which we are divided for film developing, tie dyeing and poetry scrap-book making. H. E. B. Under the leadership of Miss Kiernan, the F. U. N. Club has discovered new interest in the beautiful works of nature. Since the initiation, the third Monday of each month has been entirely devoted to fun. 1 he remainder of its weekly meetings has been given over to the study of nature. During short hikes and through the talks of different individuals, the members have learned many things about plant life and the life habits of birds and other creatures. At the beginning of the year, the following officers were elected: President . Vice President . Secretary-T reasure r Katherine Pepper Clarissa Miller Mabel Wilson Forty THE D RAGON The Juiirmont Emergency Squad The Fairmont Emergency Squad is a new club organized under the leadership of Miss Hartsock. Under her supervision, we have learned how to treat sprains and cuts and how tc bandage them correctly. Miss Evelyn Rash, a former graduate of Fairmont, has given us several interesting talks and William Hoeflinger and Lewis White gave us a demonstration of artificial respiration. The squad has decided to refill the first aid kit as one of its projects, feeling that it should be ready for use in case of an emergency. A program to be given in assembly in the near future is now being prepared. The following officers were elected for the year: President, Dorothy Schelling; Vice President, Geraldine Seitner; Secretary, Weltha Windmiller; Treasurer, Frances Willard. FRANCES WILLARD. Featuring one of the newest clubs in the history of Fairmont, the Sports Club was organized under the supervision of Mr. Warner and Mr. Ramsey, athletic directors of the school. The club was organized in behalf of the student body who take a liking to athletics and are interested in the origin of it. In the early part of the vear we spent our time studying the life works of great coaches and well known athletes, also the All-American football teams of 1928. In the latter part of the year we spent our time in the sports, such as wrestling, boxing and other athletic activities. The officers elected to take charge of this newly organized club are as follows: Clifford ender, President: Russ Creager, Vice President: Carl " Clem” Nollman, Secretary-Treasurer. iese members fill their positions with great ability and are putting the club in rank with the rst clubs of the school.

Tell dreaders Enthusiasm and ‘ ' Pep” have been aroused by Hazel Rash and William Broedling. Never have we had better cheering at Fairmont. Gfreshmen Class Project Tb vVjd Freshman English classes are each making a scrap book, which, when finished, will be sent to a school in some foreign country. The schools which receive these books, will in turn, send one back to us. The fourth period class is planning to send this book to Holland, and the fifth period class wants to send one to Spain. These books contain essays written by the Freshmen, which tell how our different classes and clubs are conducted. There are also many pictures which would interest a high school pupil in Holland or Spain. The ninth grade English classes at Belmont Junior High School are also making two scrap books like ours. TED HERSH. Forty-three THE DRAGON 0 i a pel Programs Through the efforts of our student council and various school clubs, we have enjoyed many very interesting chapel programs. These assembly programs are held on Tuesdays at which time they are educational and inspirational, while on Fridays they are given over to music and " pep " meetings. In these Tuesday morning chapel programs, we have had Professor Winger from North Manchester College. Ind.ana, who gave us a splend.d talk on " How Shall I Invest My Life? At another of these meetings, Miss Wiley gave a short sketch of her life this year at Columbia University New York City, telling of the amount of time that might be spent in college to receive the educational courses which they offer, being in all about ninety years. Many highly ippreciative periods were spent in listening to the contestants; also the inaugural address of President Hoover. Mr Rimanoczy has created an unusual interest in good music this year. It has been through him that the lovely music of Damrosch was brought to us in the best way he knew. " Mac " has also been a very prominent partner in our Friday morning assemblies, when we became intensely interested in the coming games of the season, and " school spirit of the rea " Fairmont type " appeared at all the games following his help and instruction. Having not worked out chapel program yet, many of the clubs will do this before the completion of the school year. H. E. B. Qbristmas ‘Bazaar The first big event of the year was the Christmas Bazaar, which took place December 9 in the gymnasium. Each class had charge of a different booth, and every student co-operated with a faculty adviser to make the booth a success. The gymnasium was decorated in red and green, and in the center of the floor stood a large Christmas tree which was very effectively decorated. After spending an enjoyable hour in the gymnasium, the crowd went to the auditorium where two interesting plays were put on. Those taking part in Pearls, presented by the Junior Dramatic Art Class, were Grace Powell. Marion Hintermeister, Palmer Boyles, anil Clifford Bolender. Those taking part in " The Dear Departed, " by the Senior Dramatic Art Class, were Frances Irwin, Reva Allen. Weltha Windmiller, Leroy Damuth, Duane Hatfield, and Otto Bass. A Popularity Contest was also held, and the prize, a beautifully decorated cake, went to Burt Moore. ESTHER HARN. Forty-four THE DRAGON Strange Antics of a M ild Flower This story is one of tradition in which there may be details that you will think imp ossible. In Arizona there is a wild flower or plant having leaves which sometimes grow to the immense length of eight feet. It is called the man-eating plant, and its leaves are lined with thorns and stickers which are very strong and tough. This plant lives on the things which it catches in its leaves. Inside of the leaves, or we might say on the top of the leaves, when it is opened, there is a flower or what we might call petals which are of a beautiful color and which give forth an enchanting perfume. Anything lighting upon or touching its leaves, causes it to immediately close and pierce anything which happens to be unfortunate enough to be caught within its jaws. One day a man trying to escape from the law chanced to pass through a growth of these plants. Being tired out, he lay down to rest. By chance he happened to lay upon one of these leaves. Slowly but surely it closed and held the man securely fastened within its jaws. A few hours later his screams were heard by the posse. After a short search they found him, but it was too late. The thorns had pierced his body, and he had died in terrible agony. It was just as well, however, for if the posse had caught him, he would have been hanged to the nearest tree. D. H. 9 Ain Autobiography One day in October I was born into this wonderful world. I was very delicate for a week, while my six brothers and sisters were very healthy and played around having a very good time. As I grew older, I grew healthier, thus being able to run the streets with my brothers and sisters. Then I was separated from them, and taken to a farm. The first few days, I was lonely, but I began to enjoy myself by chasing the chickens up and down the hills. Then I caught on to the trick of bringing the cows up from the pasture. One day as I was bringing the cows up, one of them tramped upon me and broke my right back leg. My master took care of me, leaving me in the house all day until my leg healed. After that I never went around the cows. As I was running a duck around the barn one day, I saw a nice black cat, which appealed to me. I went toward him, but he ran and I chased him. Through corn fields, barn yards and woods we went, until it began to grow dark. I lost track of the cat but went on anyway. At last I reached a farmhouse but to my disappointment it was not my own home. In the morning I awoke and found myself lying aside the cat which I had chased the night before. I heard a man’s voice and looked up to see a new master ' s face. He was very nice to me, and now I am an old dog, but I am still living with my new master and my old playmate, the cat. K. W. Forty-Hue THE DRAGON Your friend I am a big masculine sort of a thing, yet the smartest thing in the whole school. Everyone refers to me for some sort of knowledge. My back was originally green but from use it has become a very ugly color. During study periods, girls, boys and teachers come to my home on the table in the 6tudy hall, and peer into my face with the look in their eyes which seems to say, " I hate you; I must always come to you,” but they keep right on looking and running their dirty hands across my face, tearing my ribs and even washing my once beautiful face. After a length of time they find the definition and jot down a few words and give me a slam and very often some of my ribs are crushed. Oh, how it hurts to have my ribs crushed. I remember one time a girl came to get some advice from me, and she was very impatient and was unable to find the definition which she was looking for. In her anger she gave me a slam and down I fell crushing many ribs and breaking my back. For the remainder of the period I lay on the floor in pain. At last the bell rang; the study hall dismissed and poor me was still on the floor. Every one passed me up and several kicked me as they passed. At the beginning of the next period I was carefully picked up by a nice teacher who straightened my back and replaced my ribs in their original order, but today you can yet sec the results of the terrible accident. My once beautiful face is torn by careless and thoughtless people and in several p. ' ces my face is scratched by pen and pencil until you are unable to translate my meaning. Most boys and girls appreciate my worth and use me to a great extent, visiting with me for a long while, but others just use me to write on or perhaps draw pictures on my face or even remodel some pictures which I carry with me. But with it all, I love these young people who come to me, and hope they will come to regard me as their greatest friend at Fairmont. H. R. Forty nx THE DRAGON Senior Class Poem In nineteen hundred and twenty-five We entered Fairmont High; And then we planned and vowed to strive To help our dear old colors fly. In nineteen hundred and twenty-six As sophomores we helped her more; And vowed again to honors fix For her, more now, than e’er before. In nineteen hundred and twenty-seven In lessons, games, and contests, all; We made our school just like our heaven And answered to its every call. In nineteen hundred and twenty-nine From Fairmont, now we part; Farewell to you, our dearest shrine, Joy ever be your part. LeRoy Damuth. enior Party A Valentine party was held on the evening of February 13, by the Senior class in the gymnasium. This being the first affair of the year, great interest was taken and much was accomplished. The Faculty members and their wives were invited, and also several of the lower classmen; approximately one hundred were present. There were four committees chosen for the necessary details: decoration, refreshment, enter¬ tainment, and invitation committees. The chairman of the decorating committee was Norma Mann; assisting her were Almira Spaite, Carl Lowe. Dewan Engle, and Mr. Purdy as adviser. They had an attractive drop ceiling decoration. Hanging from the balcony were hearts of differ¬ ent sizes, about a foot apart. For the lighting they had a large number of floor lamps cozily arranged around the room. ' r ' ' - ' .irman of the entertainment committee was Dorothy Schelling, with Edward Kant- esher, Geraldine Seitner, and Miss Balzhiser for adviser. Two young men from the Y. M. t . A. led in several social games. The committee arranged a very interesting game of progressive hearts as the chief diversion of the evening. With the help of the President, Burt Moore, and the different committees, the party was a big success. FRANCES THOROMAN. Forty-seven THE DRAGO A Front Ron: From Left to Right : Kenneth Peterson.

Football Football at Fairmont was a great success during the 1928 campaign, registering five wins out of an eight-game schedule despite the fact that Coach C. P. Warner was confronted with i " sperienced material at the beginning of the season. This grid edition of the big purple de- vToped into one of the best all-around teams that was ever turned out at Fairmont, and finished the schedule bv defeating Oakwood. bv breaking the scoreless tie deadlock of the two years previous. The feature which makes the season outstanding is that onlv three regulars were back in uniform from the preceding vear. Winning five losing two and tving one is a good record for such a green outfit. The onlv losses were to Miamisburg and Trov. the latter being in the Class A group. The Bradford game resulted in a 6 to 6 tie. For the first time since the formation of the ' little three " group, a winner was decided and the honors went to Fairmont which defeated both Oakwood and Fairview. Six members of the Dragon team were named on the all-star little three ' team picked bv the coaches for Davton newspapers- Plavers that secured places on this eleven were: Mel Rohr, end: Clem Noliman. tackle: C Bolender. center: Peoples, guard: Kantner and Peterson, halfs. At the ends. Mel Rohr and Basinger were the starters, but after Basinger ' s injure in the ranklin game. Otto Bass the utilitv man. took over the flank position and handled it in great fa hion. s were filled with big Clem Noliman and Frank Kothman. Xollman. plaving his last vear rmont. scored two touchdowns in the Fairview game, but Kothman will be one of the mainstays of the Fairmont line next vear. The heaviest men on the squad filled the guard berths. Peoples and Allan were generallv the starters with Haas and Fernwault sharing time. Stub Bolender handled the duties at the center post for the second vear. and still has an¬ other vear to work for Pop Warner. During the past two rears Stub has missed only two quarters and next vear will captain the Dragon eleven. The midget of the Fairmont team was Burt Moore. 115-pound quarterback. Moore used good headwork all through the season, and particularlv in the Oakwood game he showed unusual generalship. (CorrcTwi or? Fit :y) FocTy -r?cr? THE DRAGON Athletic Council The Fairmont High School Athletic Association having been an organization only in name, early in the new year a real working athletic organization was formed. It was through the initiative of our coach, Mr. Warner, that such an organization was started. Representatives from each class and from the faculty were called together to adopt a suitable constitution. These individuals are Charles Hedges, Hazel Herren, Hazel Rash, Melvin Rohr, from the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior classes respectively; Mr. Warner, Mr. Ramsey, Miss Wahl, Mr. Herr, and Mr. Prass, from the faculty. The Fairmont High School Athletic Council was the name given to the organization. A temporary constitution drawn up by Mr. Warner was discussed and revised and finally adopted. The following officers were elected to serve until September, 1929, the beginning of school: President, Melvin Rohr; Vic-President, Miss Wahl; Secretary, Mr. Herr. Heretofore all matters concerning athletics had to be decided principally by the coach. This newly organized group will now take up responsibilities in athletic matters. It has already adopted a standard letter for each one of the major and minor sports to be awarded to students meeting the qualifications set up by the council. At one of its meetings it voted for members of the boys’ and girls’ basketball squad to whom letters should be awarded. The council also decided on the number of points to be given for first and second places in intermural sports. The council also decided that it would be for the best interests of the school to join a league of schools for competition in football, basketball, and track. The council expects to pass on an expense budget which shall serve as a guide in expending moneys. This expense budget will be based upon receipts taken in this year. FOOTBALL (Continued From Page Forty-nine ) Russell Bigler and Kenny Peterson did efficient work at the half back positions. Bigler was a good blocker and punt returner, while Peterson did the punting and got off on some nice jaunts around the ends. Captain Ldward Kantner, little but mighty when he gets his 170 pounds moving, did the passing and added extra ground when needed.

Basketball ( Boys ) With so much good material, Fairmont was expected to be well represented on the basket¬ ball court, but opposition proved too much, and the Dragons won only five games out of a 13-game schedule. Fairmont rolled up 269 points in interscholastic competition against 301 for the opponents. Several of the quintet of wins were over some of the outstanding teams of the county. The biggest upset was the win over Centerville, while victories were scored over Greenville and Fair- view, both Class A schools. There was not a game throughout the season that was a walk-away for opponents. Fair¬ mont had a good defense, but the weak offense and the inability to hit the net were the causes for the numerous defeats. The ‘Tittle Three” championship resulted in a three-cornered tie. Fairmont displayed the best game of the season to cop from Fairview, but two weeks later the Dragons bowed down to defeat at the hands of Oakwood. With a whirlwind finish of the season, Fairmont entered the county tournament with the hopes of upsetting things. Drawing a bye, Fairmont met Wayne, defeating them. 27 to 18. In the semi-finals, the Dragons met West Carrollton, and after one of the most thrilling battles of county competition, Fairmont lost in the final minutes, 23 to 19. Fairmont displayed a wonderful game, and outpointed the winners in every department except scoring. After losing out in the semi-finals, the big purple had one more chance to earn the right to represent the county in the regional tourney, but Brookville was on the long end of the score when the gun cracked, and so ended the 1929 court season. The first five men on the Dragon outfit that generally started the season’s games were: Russell Bigler and Russell Creager, forwards; Eldon Basinger, center: Clifford Bolender and Captain Melvin Rohr, guards. The others that made up the first ten were : Burt Moore, Harry Peoples, Carl Nollman, Otto Bass, and Edward Kantner. The Tournament results were: Fairmont 27 .Wayne 18 Fairmont 19 .West Carrollton 23 Fairmont 20 ..Brookville 25 (Continued on Page Fifty-two) Fifty-one THE DR AG ON What is it ? Just one more polishing and then, hie for the open road. Why, I felt so nervous that I rattled my head loose, and one of those dumb finishing inspectors is having a fit because he has to stop and tighten me up. Ugh that big wrench he is using surely does fit tight. It makes me writhe. Ha, ha, it slipped off and he hit his ' knuckles on my new radiator. They shipped me far away to a new owner and now I am fluttering like a debutante making her entree into society. Here I am at last in the salesroom strutting my ‘‘stuff’ in the front window while out¬ side a crowd of admirers is standing. I just heard one of them say, Yep, Hank, there she be, I believe I’ll go in and look at ' em. By crackey, but she s a job. I was so conceited that when one of the salesmen started me I coughed embarrassingly, and the prospect walked off in disgust. At last they sold me and when my new owner took the wheel, he shoved in the low gear so hard that he made me grunt. He 11 learn, though. I passed three years in his hands, always well sheltered, when my owner decided in favor of one of my new sisters. So he traded me in. It wasn ' t long until a new one snapped me up, and what a goose he was. He was always taking me to pieces and often he couldn’t put me together again; he finally sold me to a garageman. Pretty soon a young man came in and took me away, always running me at top speed, and I developed a bad cough. After being tortured by this fellow for a year, he sold me to another lad who has frightened me to death several times. I feel that he will soon be trading me off for one of my newer brothers. W. R.

(jirls Basketball The girls basketball team with eleven wins and one loss, enjoyed the most successful season in the history of Fairmont, with the coaching ability of Miss Wahl being largely responsible for the success. The feminine wearers of the purple and white were by far the best team ever turned out, and scored wins over some of the strongest teams of the district. The outstanding wins were over Franklin, Kiser and Oakwood. The victory over Franklin marked the first time that a girls’ team of Fairmont had ever defeated a Franklin team. The girls lay claim to the “little three " championship by virtue of the wins over Fairview and Oakwood. Possessing an unusual pair of forwards, Teresa Buchard and Hazel Rash, accounts for the most successful season. Captain Buchard, junior, scored 282 points in eleven games, while Hazel Rash registered 110 scorers. Had Rash been in forward post all season she would probably have been higher in scoring honors. Both players have another year to play. In the center division, Jerry Seitner and Milly Flaugher did excellent work with their fine passing. Jerry generally got the tip-off from the opponents, and Milly took the ball out of the air and passed it on to the forwards. This combination greatly determined the many wins. The guards must not be forgotten, especially when the two teams are on about a par. Dorothy Schelling and Bernice Askren handled the defensive part of the game in a wonderful manner. The entire team scored 45 6 points against 231 for opponents. These figures show that not only the offense was superior but that all other departments of the team were running to perfection. Three will be lost through graduation: Flaugher, Schelling. and Seitner, but with such good material to select from, there should be no difficulty of developing another winning com¬ bination. Grace Willard, Virginia and Martha Forsythe, Betty Weinman, Esther Kerst. Colleen Bushong, Mildred Swope, Dorothy Severs and Thelma Koepnick were the other members of the squad that saw some service in regular games, and will be fighting it out next year for first team positions.

Oakwood 26 Fifty-three THE DRAGON TROPHY COLLECTION It was only three years ago, 1926 to be exact, when there was not a single loving cup or trophy on the shelves of the Library at Fairmont, but after three years of plundering in state high school athletics, this school now has a varied collection of awards, which show the strides forward Fairmont has made in the sport field. The credit for this list of silverware must be given to Fairmont ' s coach, C. P. Warner. His untiring efforts in the three major sports here has won Fairmont state-wide recognition, during the five years he has been at the head of the athletic department. The first award to come to Fairmont was in the form of a silver loving cup. This was in 1926, when Fairmont was runner-up in the county tournament. Each member of the squad also received a bronze medal. The following year, Fairmont received a small cup, having placed third in the county basketball tournament. When track was introduced into the athletic curriculum at Fairmont, the Library became adorned with numerous trophies until now the necessity of a trophy case is in sight. After a careful count it was found that Fairmont, in track alone, earned three silver plaques, three cups, and seventy-four medals in the possession of the track stars. There were forty-four gold medals, the remainder being silver and bronze medals. Along with one of the trophies went the state championship in Class C, while the other two plaques were rewards of the county championship. All of the cups in track came from the relay events. In both county events, Fairmont copped the cup, while they duplicated the feat in the state meet in 1927. In county competition, Fairmont captured nearly all the medals in the past two years. A total of 44 medals were taken in county meets; 24 in the first year, and 20 in the last. Last year, Fairmont entered the southwestern meet at Miami University and finished second. 1 he winners at Miami went to the state meet and entered in Class B in preference to Class C which they entered the year before. At Columbus, Fairmont met some real opposition, but despite the fact, Fairmont finished with twelve points and added another to the list of state records. The first to come to Fair- n the 100-yard dash, when Clyde Bolender set a 10.4 record, while last year John Rob in ...me through with a state title in the high hurdles. little opposition, and the Dragons walked off with the second county trac 1 mpionship. Another interesting meet was that with Oakwood s record in the High hurdles was 16.4 seconds. The old record was 16 9 sec¬ onds. I h;s is a Class B record. THE DRAGON The Dayton Suburban High School League The organization of the Dayton Suburban High School League with Fairmont, Oakwood, Fairview, West Carrollton, Germantown, Lebanon, and Franklin as members, will place athletics in each of these seven schools on a higher plane, with a championship in each sport as an objective. League competition always promotes more interest from the standpoint of school, community and team; and a cleaner brand of sport. Because of uniform rules and regulations, a higher type of sportsmanship can be developed; a better instead of a bitter rivalry manifested between mem¬ bers; more efficient officiating obtained; and a closer adherence to the constitution and by-laws of the Ohio High School Athletic Asseociation observed. From now on the goal in all sports at Fairmont will be a championship in this league. With every one doing his or her “bit,” Fairmont should obtain at least her share of the perma¬ nent trophies to be given each year in each of the three sports. Next year’s schedule of Football and Basketball with league games included are as follows: FOOTBALL SCHEDULE Oct. 4—Germantown .there Oct. 12—Oxford McGuffey.here Oct. 1 9—Bradford .here Oct. 26—Franklin .there Nov. 2—Troy .there Nov. 9—Fairview .here Nov. 1 6—Lebanon .here Nov. 23—Open Nov. 28—Oakwood .there BASKETBALL SCHEDULES Dec. 13.—Farmersville .here Dec. 20—Centerville .here Dec. 31—Alumni .here Jan. 3—Kiser .here Jan. 10—Franklin .here Jan. 1 1—Greenville .there Jan. 17—West Carrollton .there Jan. 24—-Oakwood .here Jan. 31—Permanently Open.

You stop and ponder for a moment and the significance of it all is slight; it is simply another event of no great importance in your life. Graduation usually is associated with the end. but we believe it only the beginning of the end. is The community may well be proud of the facilities at its command that have made this event possible. The student should appreciate the possibilities of these facilities. We wish to congratulate the graduate students of Fairmont High School and sincerely hope and believe they will at all times merit the confidence of the world at large in the future as they have merited the confidence and justified the hopes and ambitions of the good citizens of Van Buren Township in the past. By having the very best of modern facilities with which to work, as furnished by the faculty and equipment of the Fairmont High School, the best results were obtained. The same holds true in merchandising. When you buy a Goodrich Tire or a Prest-O-Lite Battery you are not merely buying a tire or battery, but are investing your dollars in sound value and trouble-free service. We also carry a complete line of other high-grade automobile accessories; all standard makes and nationally advertised.

Bring all Fairmont students to school in your machine, it will create a fine feel¬ ing. 2. If students are late, do not ask un¬ necessary questions, you might em¬ barrass the frightened chappie. 3. Assist, rather than interfere with the passing of notes among the students, it gives a better understanding. 4. Arrange a clock in such a place so as to be easily seen at all times. 5. Encourage the use of chewing gum. It aids digestion. 6. If the student seems sleepy, make things easy for him, because he probably studied late the night before. 7. Burden not your pupils with too many lessons. Remember the suicides. 8. Never scold too severely, because you might hurt some soul’s feelings. 9. Have compacts close at hand in case the girls forget theirs. 10. Once a week ask the class for sugges¬ tions to improve the course. You will get startling ideas. x ::xx xx x m n e E E g E E E (Ml ( 8 ) g E g g William Hanby Res. E. 2815-W Compliments of S.

In the mad rush to leave, not a girl goes until she has powdered her nose and arranged her hat just so. In the morning, from the earliest comer till the bell, a babel of voices is heard. Just suppose you were a hat hanging near a window—or the much sought mirror—wouldn ' t you hear some interesting things? " Oh, Almira, have you got your French? Lend it to me as I haven’t mine. " " My hair’s a sight. I can’t do a thing with it. I think I’ll bob it again.” " May I have your comb? Just look at my hair! I wish I’d never had it cut.” " Got any rouge, Reva?” " Hello, everybody, ain ' t the snow swell? " " I don’t feel well, I guess it is because I haven’t any of my lessons. " ‘‘Say, Willard, have I got too much powder on?” " For crying out loud, quit pushing!” " Say, you ' re plenty good lookin’, let me see myself.” " Gym today. Good night, I sure hate that stuff.” " There goes the bell! And I haven ' t my history yet.” And so on. At the end of the day still more: " Say, would you mind letting some one else get a glimpse at that mirror?” " Look at my shiny nose. I hope I haven ' t been that way all day.” " Oh, the books I have to take home tonight!” " Did you give the note to him? What did he say?” " Wait for me outside?” " Let’s get some candy before we go home.” " Oh. here ' s my hat. It surely is a mess.” It is an endless cycle which will go on as long as the mirror—exists. ON FAIRMONT’S FIELD On Fairmont ' s field. Thanksgiving Day, That’s when our team went out to play Against proud Oakwood’s Blue and Gold. Our cheering then was mighty bold, For Fairmont school had all the say. Coach Warner taught our boys the way To win a game in the Oakwood fray; To this our team was then well sold, On Fairmont’s Field. Oh. how our boys did clear the way For our backfield in every play; And all our school, the story told Of vict’ry won, with stroke so bold, Because from her, we won that day, On Fairmont ' s Field.

This achievement is the result of fifteen years of painstaking research to determine the simplest, the most efficient design. It has made the General Electric Refrigerator one of the outstanding engineering accomplishments of recent times. All the mechanism, together with a permanent supply of oil, is contained in an hermetically sealed steel casing. Here it is safe from dust and difficulties. This distinctively electric refrigerator operates so quietly you can scarcely hear it. It is plugged into any convenience outlet as simply as an electric iron—there is no plumbing, soldering or wiring to be done. Sold on easy deferred payments, if you prefer. 0 g] 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 [w] 0 0 0 0 0 isl 0 0 m 0 0 0 m i 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 | 0 | » 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Of.
