WHERE MEMORY FONDLY RETURNS
TwoTHE FARRELL HIGH SCHOOI
Published by the Class of Nineteen Nineteen
TO HAROLD PARSONS. ’13, WHO DEDICATED HIS LIFE TO HIS COUNTRY ON THE BATTLEFIELDS OF FRANCE
The four years of a student’s life at High School are years that will be cherished throughout his life.
In compiling this third edition of the Farrell Hi “Reflector”, we have given as clear a conception of High School life as becomes our ability, emphasizing especially the activities of the class of ’19.
To the classes of '17 and ’18, to the teachers and students of the School, and to the alumni of Farrell High, the “Reflector” Staff of ’19 submits its humble effort.PORT ECKLES
The work of our schools this year from the first grade up, stands out prominently as the most successful in Farrell's history. There is but one reason for this—the able and careful supervision of our superintendent, Mr. Ecklcs.
Mr. Eckles is a friend to every student of the Farrell schools. Even the wee six year old feels that he can enter the office and receive justice. It is quite a picture to see one of the " first graders" walk up to Mr. Eckles' desk and in the highest tones of respect and admiration address him "Port Eckles."
Such a spirit of fairness and justice seems to radiate from the office of the superintendent that co-operation exists between teachers and pupils and spells success for the schools.
We are indeed proud that we can look up to such a one as leader and number him as one of our friends. Even though he bears on his shoulders the cares and responsibilities of all the schools, he is never too busy to sit down with any student and give friendly counsel and advice.
With Mr. Eckles at the helm, we are certain that the schools will be run efficiently and the rights of all will be protected.
SevenJ. E. IMLER
May I introduce you to Mr. J. E. I ruler, the clever and efficient principal of our High School. r 1
As a graduate of Bedford High School, Mr. Iniler went to Franklin and Marshall College and soon his genial smile won for him many friends. After graduation Mr. Imler went to Scottdale to teach Latin and later to Monesson to teach the youth of that town that Cos A did not equal
The Technical High School at Harrisburg next claimed Mr. Imler, but they could not long retain him as a member of their faculty for lo! he had heard of Farrell High and who, having heard, could remain away? We are glad to have Mr. Imler with us as he is just, honest and true to his word, and each fellow in the High School knows that in his office justice is always found.
Although Mr. Imler is a capable principal, an able teacher, yet we feel that perhaps his greatest accomplishment is the singing of America.
EightMRS. ALICE CULP TURNER
As you will note from her name, Mrs. Turner is the only one of our teachers who has nerve enough to have a husband. This may not speak so well for the remaining ladies of the faculty but they say Mrs. Turner is blessed with a more beautiful voice than most girls with the result that: ‘Music hath charms."
We arc always glad of the opportunity of hearing Mrs. Turner sing, not only for the real pleasure of hearing her music, but we appreciate the spirit which prompts her to give us such joy.
Mrs. Turner is a graduate of Hiram College and has been teaching French and History in our schools for the past four years.
MISS FRANCES LIVINOOOD
Kindly take my advice, ladies and gentlemen, and nail fast all lawn chairs, porch furniture and the like as Miss Livingood is continually on the lookout for il suitable settings for our next play.99
M iss Livingood has travelled quite a distance but we are glad to say, arrived in time for the beginning of the year. She prepared for college at Snell Seminary, Berkly, California. From there she entered Leland Stanford Jr. University where she graduated in 1913. Her first years of teaching were at Myersdale, Pa. After two years there she changed to Homestead and thence to Farrell.
Miss Livingood teaches English, directs the literary societies and cocahes our plays.
NineMISS ANNA MINEHAN
WALLACE J. DOWNS
‘‘Here we are hoys, now got in the game. You gotta get this one.” These are words as familiar to the High School athlete as a family blessing to a preacher's son. Yes, they come from none other than our coach Downs as he lines the men for a game. They have results, too, as proof of this we can produce two perfectly good legs on the Mercer County championship cup.
Mr. Downs' early days were spent at Greenville, Pa. As he was never allowed to go far from home, he attended Thiel College. Since his graduation in 1917, he has taught Science here and coached our teams.
“Friends, Romans and Countrymen, lend ne your ears,” I shall return them with interest. Subject for discussion, Miss Minehan. As I attempt this speech so many facts crowd to the mind (hat one scarcely knows what to say first.
Miss Minehan was planning soon to enter a new field of endeavor but the shortage of men due to war conditions has caused a postponement. Then too, travelling conditions between here and B—B—B—(Oh. I don t se ewhy I always stuter when I try to pronounce a word beginning with B)—well, travelling conditions are bad.
Miss Minehan is a native of Sharpsville, where she graduated from High School. Since the completion of her college course at Grove City in 1915, she has taught Latin in our school.
TenMISS KATHRYN TROUP
The regular disappearance of Miss Troup every Wednesday evening caused much excitement among the ranks of the faculty. The mystery was not solved until our last dance when the lady in question appeared on the floor and the grace with which she glided around caused us to forget such stars as 11 Madame Sherry." It then became evident that a dancing school had boon the cause of the Wednesday evening visits.
Miss Troup became a member of the faculty one year ago, after graduation from Westminster College.
4 'Give me a Chalmers 'Six’ and you can keep all your men" is Miss Stewart's motto. Not that she is a man hater. Oh. no! Far be it from that. "Men are all right in their place, but who ever saw one who knew his place. Now a Chalmers will go when you want it and where you want it, but there is no such a thing in a man's vocabulary," is the way she puts it.
Jovial, jolly and good natured, she is a friend of all. "Fats," sleep, tennis and basket ball are a few of her hobbies. E'en though a Sharon girl Miss Stewart is a “dyed in the wool" Farrell fan. Since her graduation at Grove City '17 she has taught History for us.
ElevenMISS ELIZABETH CHASE
“Oh wait! Here is a bug.99 Has any one ever heard the pedigree of one of those animals which happens to stray in Miss Chase's path? Yes, she is simply “ buggy" about. Zoology. But that is her favorite pastime at Farrell Hi making life miserable for the bugs.
Miss Chase is a native of Greenville, where she kept the teachers busy during her four years at Hi school. After graduation she decided to go away from home for a college education, so Allegheny College was chosen. Miss Chase came to Farrell at the beginning of this year after teaching one year at Randolph, N. Y.
MISS ELEANOR SPANGLER
Mathematics is generally considered an unpopular subject but this does not hold true at our school. Much of course depends upon the teacher. Now we do not care to tell tales out of school but, without being personal, can say that no less than one Senior has transferred his affections from Senior Mathematics to Sophomore. We may add that Miss Spangler teaches the Sophomore Geometry.
In addition to teaching Mathematics, Miss Spangler had been actively engaged in war work. She has spent quite a little time in locating the 28th division. Wo are glad to note at present that they have arrived safely in America.
Miss Spangler is a graduate of Bellevue High School and University of Pittsburgh. This is her first year teaching.
TwelveMISS HELEN BIGLER
There arc so many interesting events in Miss Bigler’s life to lx told that neither time nor space will allow us to give even a brief account here. We .suggest, however, that all persons who are interested, spend their noon hour in the Domestic Science room where each day she plays the leading role in a one act comedy entitled “Alspice.” Indeed the characterization and impersonations given at these cooking comedies” would make many stage stars fade away like milk at a flies’ convention.
But don’t think she is always joking. If you visit one of her classes you will sec the stern realities of life depicted in a most dramatic manner. We think however that four years in Grove City High and four years in Grove City College ought to take some of the joy out of life. Miss Bigler arrived at the beginning of this year C. O. D. from Em lenton, Pa.
MISS HELEN RODGERS
Miss Rodgers, although far, far away from home, is happy with us so long as she can convince us that ”A stitch in time saves nine.” She is the only teacher who stuck with us throughout the period of the ‘ Flu ’ ’ epidemic, but when she decided to entertain Mr. Flu she travelled all the way back home where we could not send any more than our sympathies. Miss Rodgers is a graduate of Indianapolis, Ind. High School and Purdue University. She teaches sewing in the Household Arts Course.
ThirteenMR. ISAAC PROSSER
J. E. STREBIG
Keep your scats ladies. Those in the front row kindly remove their hats so that the second row occupants can see. Introducing Strebig, the man of the hour about Hi School when anything is needed quickly, play producer par excellent, general property man when it cornea to constructing scenery for shows. Yes, he is married, but you wouldn't think it if you once saw how late he stays around the school building.
Mr. Strebig is a graduate of Williamson Trade School and in addition to the many things stated above, finds time to take charge of the Industrial Education.
Wales was certainly kind to us when she allowed our music teacher to depart, from her borders. Mr. Prosser has spent his many years in this country at his profession of musical instruction. Until this year he was engaged in private and church work, but he has entered his new field, that of public teaching, with as much enthusiasm and interest as was evident in his former efforts.
The High school orchestra and the boys' and girls' Glee Clubs are under his supervision. We are glad to see the results of his instruction because of the joy that music brings to us.
FourteenMISS FLORENCE DONLIN
Miss Donlin hails from Meadville and is a booster of her home town. Mcadville, as you know, is an educational center yet Miss Donlin boasts of “scalps” from all its institutions. “Sheep skins” from Mcadville High, Allegheny College and Meadvilie Commercial College all decorate the walls of her room. Her special line of work is commercial.
We are glad to note that Miss Donlin's services are rendered to the school in more ways than one. Her health hints to the girls are excellent to say the least. A few of these follow: “Never go on hazardous trips unless accompanied by a physician.” “In case of loneliness always consult a doctor.” “Never practice the arm movement when riding in a roadster.1
MISS EDICE REIDER
The “dough boys” in France never were held in higher esteem than some “dough girls” in America. Needless to say Miss Reider was keenly disappointed at the government 's action in choosing male army cooks. There was particularly one regiment made up mostly by one particular individual to which Miss Reider would not have objected to have been assigned. From the reports of teachers and pupils from the domestic room, we do not hesitate to say that the regiment in question certainly would have been favored if Miss Reider would have had her desires. The teachers are all eager for Miss Reider s cooking day to come around.
M iss Reider is a New Castle girl and a graduate of the four years' course at Margaret Morrison.
FifteenA Few Words of Commendation
Before progressing we think it appropriate that some mention should be made of our teachers as a group and of their interest in each of us as students here.
The spirit of each teacher to each other and to the entire school is commendable in every respect. Never in the history of our High School has a corps of teachers worked together so harmoniusly and energetically. Careful always of another’s feelings and seeking ever to lend a hand, they have shown us students that it is really possible for men and women to work together peaceably and profitably.
This, indeed, has reflected upon the school. The students, using as a model the spirit of the teachers, have developed a spirit of fairness and interest such as is seldom seen in a High school.
Many activities in the way of literary and social events have been added to our high school life. The teachers have entered into these affairs with such enthusiasm and zeal that they have made the students feel closer to them and to the school. We appreciate life much more when we feel that our lives are
appreciated, so here, we have more cause to appreciate our teachers when we
feel that our teachers appreciate us and are willing to use so much of their time to make us happy.
The success of our literary society is due to our teachers and their tireless efforts in going over our work with us, our plays to their faithful services and eareful instruction, our dances and parties to their regular attendance and helpful suggestions at all times.
Of course wc wish to grow and wish our old school to grow in like manner. This necessarily will add new members to our faculty, but with the coming of the new, we hope only for renewed spirit such as is evident at present. Thus we feel that there should always be a place on our high school faculty for each of its present members. As we pass from these halls as students we shall carry with us something that was learned not from our books, but from our daily lives with our teachers, and that is: “A life of service is a life worthy to have been lived.”

Four short years have passed away, Four short years, how they did fly, It seems as if t'were yesterday,
We entered Farrell High.
Last night we were hut Freshmen, Tonight our school days o'er,
Last night we faced the threshold, Tonight we pass the door.
Yes, when we were Freshmen,
We laughed in the Senior's face;
We smiled to think they hated To leave the “Dear Old Place."
We thought if we were Seniors And the parting day had come,
We'd be so glad to get away We'd drop our books and run.
We'd run as fast as we could go, We'd never stop to look,
We'd be so glad to leave without The thought of school or book.
We never listened for the bell,
Or tried to be on time;
We seemed to reach the school house To hear the tardy chime.
Hating our teachers, every one Mean things of them we'd say;
But to them we owe our thanks For what we are today.
If we had rules to study,
We all sat there and dozed,
Our lessons we never finished,
Our books were always closed.
But then we were but Freshmen,
And had no cares at all,
If in vict'rv we should rise Or in defeat should fall.
But now we've grown to Seniors,
Our views are greatly changed,
We look upon the other side,
Our minds arc higher ranged.
We're Seniors, yes, we're Seniors,
With all our school days o'er,
Fame stands on the corner,
And fate knocks at the door.
Now the dreaded day has come at last, The day when we must part,
We haven't time to wait and mourn, Life's journey we must start.
We think of when as Freshmen,
We longed for the great day,
But now, how thankful we should be If they would let us stay.
We bid farewell to the Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors too,
For now we leave the High School, To dwell apart from you.
Mvrna A. Dunham, '10.
Some one once said, “History will repeat itself.” However, the history of the class of ’19 cannot he equalled; such a history as ours will not he repeated. We have done our best for Farrell High and we are proud of the fact.
Even as Freshies we were shining lights, brighter, according to faculty reports, than many of the classes that entered Farrell High. Of course we were a little “green” at times when we attended a social affair or took part in the literary program, but that “greenness” soon faded as the tlavs of our Freshman year passed by.
The big social event of our Freshman year was a picnic held at Buhl Park on the last day of school. Needless to say, everyone enjoyed himself immensely and left school that year with happy thoughts in mind.
The summer passed and September found us back again in school as Sophomores. We were not quite so foolish now and determined to make our Sophomore year amount to something. At the end of another happy year we reaped the harvest of the seed we had sown. Not one of us tailed in any subject.
On the last day of school we held our annual Sophomore-Freshman picnic and everyone joined in saying that he had had “a perfectly swell time. Thus our Sophomore year came to a close.
Again a summer passed and we returned in the fall as full-fledged Juniors. From that time on our school and social activities as well as our regular school work increased steadily.
Our class held many socials in the “Gym” after games. We surely had good times at these parties. However, all these little socials were only leading to the big event of the year, the Junior-Senior banquet.
About the middle of the year our class was diminished by one. That one was Raleigh Moody, who had answered Uncle Sam’s call and was now in uniform. We are proud to think that Raleigh was one of our number.
The big event arrived. The banquet was held in the gymnasium after the graduation exercises. The banquet took on the aspect of a patriotic
Twentyaffair. We parted that night, to return after the summer vaeation as Senior’s.
We must not forget to mention, too, that it was in this year that our basket ball team won the eup at Grove City.
e returned again as Seniors. This year of all years, seemed to have passed the quickest. We held many social affair’s. W'e passed through a record basket ball season, winning the much coveted Grove City cup for the second time in as many years. Literary work was re-established in the High School. Many plays were given, each of which was a decided success. Our Senior boys organized a dancing club and held many dances. On the whole our Senior year was the most active year of our High School career.
Xow we are about to leave your halls, dear Alma Mater, where we spent tour years of joyous High School life. Justly we can look back and say that we gave our best to thee. When we leave thee, we will take with us sacred memories which in later life shall lead us on to success. So verily we say, “Farewell, Farrell High, farewell dear friends and teachers, farewell to thee, our Alma Mater.”

Pence Ho! ’Tis not Caesar who spenks. hut Homer. We may search diligently everywhere hut rarely will we find one like Homer. He always tries hard, does his best at whatever he attempts and is everyone’s friend. As Class President he directed the affairs of the class in a manner that spoke well of him. In athletics he played a clean, fair game. Homer is one of the best speakers in the High school and has always been active in our literary work.
Gladys is the young lady who has had a heavy task of recording the doings of the class of ’19. She filled her position very ably. Gladys is an optimistic young miss, always seeing the bright side and never the dark side. Going to school (that is. from her home to school is a pleasure to her. Gladys says sho has not yet decided what to be, but if you ask her personally, she wi’l tell you.

Mary is a charming lady of marked ability along musical lines. She has always been a help to the class. Although she is a quiet lass in school, she always enjoys a good time. Mary is a studious young miss. and. if she attends the duties of life as well as she has attended her duties in the class room, we predict great success for her.

This mischievous little black eyed miss is very popular and is held in high esteem by all her class mates. She attended Raven High for a short while, but at last decided that it could not equal Farrell High. She makes a success of everything she undertakes as is shown in the capable manner she plays basket ball. Her greatest ambition is to become a physical director, but we are all sure she means a “heart breaker.”

"Nuppv” is a rash and daring youth who fears nothing, not even a teacher. When "Nuppy" makes up his mind to do anything he does it, but taking all in all. he is a congenial friend and always ready to lend a haml. His mind is set on an engineering course and we see no reason why he should not succeed along this line as he has had plenty of experience with his "tin can."
Literary Editor of Reflector.
This dark haired young lady is especially noted for her elocutionary ability. She is "some actress" too. as was shown in the play ".lay ville Junction." Speak to her of cares and she is ever ready with her favorite expression. "I should worry." Her interests are centered on a commercial course and in mastering the French language. We wonder why? Here’s hoping she succeeds.

Bessie is one of our most faithful students. She believes in the proverb "business before pleasure." This lass with the wee small voice has won for herself many friends. She is always willing to lend a hand at anything. She believes in thinking much and saying little. "The secret of thv worth and wisdom, well we know."

"Cliff" was with us only one year, coming here from the big city (?) called Conneautville.
"Cliff" knew a good high school when he saw one. and you know the rest. He is diminutive of stature, but as we say. "all good things come in small packages." "Cliff" is an excellent student and is always willing to lend a hand.

Kress is clever, intelligent and ready to help anyone at any time and an all-around good “Pal.”

Max’s main ambition is to get into trouble.
He has fully succeeded along those lines for he was in “hot water” three fourths of the time in the past year. Without Max, the Seniors would indeed be lost. He is noted at times for his sudden flashes of brilliancy, which, however. do not come often enough to please the faculty. We all know that Max could succeed along whatever line he enters so it is needless for us to wish him any success.

Rose is a dignified miss of a quiet nature, but in her case we are sure that “silence means intelligence.” She is very studious and is well rewarded for her efforts according to her reports. “Business before pleasure” seems to be the motto of this girl.

The sun was doing its best as I woke up that summer morning. I had planned to visit my old school mates on this day.
Accordingly I had my chauffeur get my aeroplane, which could daily make four hundred miles an hour, in shape for a long trip.
I left Denver, my home, early in the morning and arrived in New York City. 1 checked my baggage and had a hurried breakfast at the Hotel Con-nair which had just recently been completed. Passing Fifth Avenue I stepped into Schell Brothers holesale House where I saw my old pals Homer and Martin. Same Adler, their chief business manager, was on a buying trip so I could not see him.
1 passed the Princess Theatre where John Kozar and Sam Sayers were entertaining the people of New York for one week. Imagine my surprise when I met Congressman Mary Bovard, accompanied by Doris Shilling, who was secretary to the vice president of the country.
I then hastened back to my plane, and an hour’s ride set me in Pittsburgh. I stepped into the corner drugstore on Wood Street for a soda. To add to my joy I met Rumbel and Kress, who happene’d to be the owners of the store. Just then Mrs. Rumbel, you know who 1 mean, a former member of our class, entered the store.
I had my chauffeur drive me up to Pitt University where I learned that Joe O’Brien was coaching the boys’ basket ball team and Anna Broscoe was the instructor of the girls’ team.
Coming back to Fifth Avenue I passed La Camera’s Millinery Shop and stepped in. Miss La Camera was out, but her assistant, Helen Sage, showed me through the place.
Leaving Pittsburgh 1 set out for the old “burg” of Farrell, hoping to see a few more of my old schoolmates. The town had grown greatly since I had last been there. The High School. I learned, was under the supervision of Miss Bessie Evans. Among the members of the faculty were Estella Johnston, Rose Rosenblum and Stella Teilhet.
I passed a magnificent barber shop and stepped in to see who might be
Thirty-fivethe owner of the place. Imagine my surprise when I saw John Konnerth the owner.
Max Markovitz was managing the Farrell Dry Goods Company and he told me that lie had just heard from Van Natten who was a traveling salesman for a large rubber concern.
Stepping out of the store onto Broadway, I met Mrs. Carroll. Whether it was through luck that I met her or not. I do no tknow. From her T learned that Mvrna Dunham was the owner of a large undertaking establishment in San Francisco, and that Clifford llepler was chief chemist in the mills at Gary, Indiana.
I left Farrell and about the middle of the afternoon 1 landed in St. Louis. I saw posters announcing the fact that Miss Phyllis Turner, the celebrated pianist, was to gi'e a concert at the opera house that night. 1 was glad to learn that one of my classmates was going to entertain, but T really couldn’t spend the evening in St. Louis as 1 had some work at my office for that night.
1 set out for home and arrived in time for supper. After supper 1 went to the office intending to do some work. But work, I could not. I sat in my chair and thought of all my old classmates that I had met that day. This soon brought me back to the good old times we used to have at our Alma Mater. I do not know how many hours passed as I thought of those times. The striking of the clock at twelve o’clock woke me out of my dreamland and 1 left the office still thinking of our dear old Farrell High.

Thirty-nineJunior Class History
In the fall of ’16, a band of juveniles, just back from a summer’s vacation entered Farrell High as “Freshies.” This band, numbering about eiglity-fie. were later known as the class of ’20. We were a noisy bunch and it took a few months before we settled down to any work whatever. When we finally got our bearings we went along smoothly and nothing out of the ordinary happened. Our class was represented on the basket ball team by two men. We organized the class in the same year and closed our first year with the annual Freshie-Sophomore picnic.
Returning after the vacation months, we set out to make our Sophomore year one of history. One of the first things we did was to reorganize. We joined with the other classes in helping to initiate the Freshies. Nothing else of much importance happened until the latter part of the year, when we participated in the bonfire given in honor of our champion basket ball team. School work occupied our time for the remainder of the year.
We returned to school in the fall of ’18 as Juniors. Our ranks were depleted to some extent, but that did not daunt us. We had hardly got started,
when the “flu” epidemic interrupted us. We took part in the many plays that were given and had a greater number of men on the team than any other class. This year was again marked by the winning of the Grove City cup by our varsity team. We received a disappointment when our class team lost the inter-elass cup to the Seniors.
We attended a few socials, all of which led up to the annual Junior-Senior banquet. With the Junior-Senior banquet our third year of High School life came to a finis.

Forty-threeSophomore Class History
On a bright sunshiny day in September, 1917, about one hundred boys and girls presented themselves at the High School for admittance to the Freshman class. How I wish you, my readers, could have seen us then. The boys were all attired in knickerbocker suits, their hair combed .just so—not a hair out of place. In their eyes shone the light of desire for world conquering; their tightly compressed lips showed their determination to make the “big fellows” know there was a Freshman class in High School. The girls were dressed in their freshly starched dresses and their long braids of hair were ornamented with huge bows of gay colored ribbon.
Bill McGill and Julius Roux were seen to grasp each other, perhaps for fear of losing one another and what would be the consequence. Fred Jarrett came with a copy of the United States constitution under one arm and an encyclopedia under the other, “for fear,” as Fred expressed it. “the Farrell Hi library was not fully equipped with such necessities of an orator’s life.”
Our first week was spent rather happily by us but miserably by the teachers for “which one was Arapad and which Alador?”
All would have gone well if the upper classmen hail not been envious of the shining trusses of the Freshman boys. As a result of this envy our boys appeared in classes one morning with little crosses and rectangles shaven on their heads.
On September twenty-third (23) we held a class meeting and elected our officers and chose our class colors. Red, white and blue proved to be the choice, thereby proving our patriotism. Days came and went and soon it was May tenth. Such a glorious day. We celebrated by taking a “May walk.” Miss Stewart acted as chaperon.
Vacation seemed but a day and soon we were back as “regular” Sophomores, but my, what a difference. We were all “grown up” now.
This year we astonished the upper classmen by giving a bawl (ball) and we pride ourselves that had they seen it they would have learned the meaning of good fellowship.
The last and most important event of our Sophomore year was the purchase of a Liberty Bond ($100.00). We are the first class to own one.
We are sorry to see the Seniors go and wish them all success for the future.

Entering tlu High School in the fall of MS, we were introduced to our various studies and teachers. We soon got the i hang of things1 f in arranging our own affairs when the upper classmen thought it necessary that we be initiated. Consequently, every Freshman boy received a haircut from the unskilled hands of a student barber. This was our big event of the year. Our boys took it in a sportsmanlike manner and were none the worse for it. We had the privilege of attending the High School dances and some from our class used this privilege. Nothing else happened, except that we took part in the literary programs and some of the plays. School work occupied our time for the remainder of the year, and the first High school year of the class of '22 closed with a picnic held at Buhl l ark in honor of the Sophs.
Forty-sevenOur Honor Roll
It is with pride that we gaze upon the names of these gallant boys, former students of Farrell High School, who heard the call of their country and who so nobly responded. Leaving home, friends, and comforts, they went to a far-off country, willing to sacrifice their young lives to stop the onward rush of the brutal Hun. Our boys knew that the enemy was at our door, and though the task was difficult, it was not too great, for soon the enemy was reeling back toward Hunland.
At Chateau-Thierry they went into battle willingly, with the enthusiasm of indomitable courage which carried them through cannon and machine-gun fire. On our boys rushed through line after line of the enemy’s defensive, reaching their objectives with skill and daring. Such onrush took the Boche by surprise, and in spite of his determined resistance he was pressed back, followed closely at the heels by a fearless army. This gallant rush of our boys inspired the British and French armies, who were almost worn out from four year’s of severe fighting. They took on a new plunge, and the end was inevitable, when the three armies worked together.
When we consider the magnitude of this war which is rightfully called the War of Wars, we are grateful that our boys came out of that raging horror’ as they did, although some have been wounded and one of them has made the supreme sacrifice.
Our service flag with its fifty-five stars is sacred to us. Especially because there is one gold star. Justly can we say when we look upon that gold star. “Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his country.”

At the opening of the school term last September, two literary societies were organized. The names selected were those of two of our presidents, Washington and Lincoln.
As is customary, friendly rivalry soon sprang up between the two societies. Programs were planned and carried out in an excellent manner. Teachers and pupils worked together and much credit is due both faculty and students for the fine programs given.
We all feel that our societies have helped us in more ways than one. Many pupils who possessed an ability for public speaking were given a chance to display their talent. Others, not endowed with the “art of speech-making” were given a place on the program in order that they might develop a “hit” of talent bestowed upon them.
We feel that these societies may be the “making” of some great orator or statesman, and our one hope is, that the students of Farrell High will take advantage of the opportunity given them, and cultivate the so much needed art, that of “holding an audience.”
At the last meeting of the Washington Society their literary work reached a climax in the presentation of a “Mock Trial.” The Lincoln Society rose to their full height upon presenting the play “A Country School.”
The “Mock Trial” produced some local court talent. The lawyers would make many a well known lawyer hustle to hold his place. The judge too, showed that a few years’ experience would soon have him fit for the position of the justice of the supreme court. The affair, to do it ample justice was presented very ably and was a fitting climax to the work of the society for the year.
The Lincoln Society climax to their work “A Country School.” was in every way equal to the ‘Mock Trial” of the sister society. Full justice would be lacking if it were said that it was presented very ably. The play showed hard and careful preparation and the Lincoln Society should be lauded for their fitting climax to a most successful year of literary work.

Before we relate any facts of either society, we wish to state that we are neutral and we are not going to state which society is the better as we value our lives to some extent. At a meeting held by the Washington Society m the auditorium, a vote was taken and it was decided that Homer Schell should lead this hand of “greenhorns,” so far as literary work is concerned, for the first term. Homer set about his task in a business like manner and worked hard to get the society in the limelight. He did so, but it was not very long after that, that old man “flu” put in his appearance and put the ban on school for a number of weeks.
It was a rather different band of students that returned after the “flu” epidemic. The students had learned the rudiments of literary work and were now prepared to further work. From that time on the society held many meetings at which splendid programs were given.
Time passed and new officers were elected. Vet that feeling of rivalry towards the Lincolnites still existed in the camp of the Washington upholders. The society flourished under these new officers and it soon was that everybody, even the members of the hostile society, looked forward for the meeting of the Washington Society. Even the teachers, we are told, looked forward to these meetings with an anxious eye.
To come to a finis, we all join in saying that the Washington Society did all in their power to make the literary work of Farrell High a success.

The Lincoln Society having been organized, the members voted Martin Schell as their leader for the first term. They too, like their sister society, were interrupted in the middle of their work by the “flu” epidemic.
On returning to school the members again took up their work and the result was that every program thereafter was the best the Lincolnites could offer. The members of the society were eager to outdo the Washington Society and win the laurels at the end of the year.
The months passed and in due time, new officers were elected. The same good programs that had been heretofore given, continued under their guidance. The feeling of rivalry towards their sister society had not ceased to exist and with this in mind the members worked more diligently than before. Whether they did outdo their rivals or not, we will not say. Yet, we will say that the debates, orators, essays and speechs showed that the sister society would have to hustle to keep up with the Lincoln Society.
That the students and teachers enjoyed the program, we have not the least doubt. May the Lincoln Society of years to come do as good work towards making literary a success in High School as the Lincoln Society of the past year has done.

A Thanksgiving Kiss
“Where are you going to spend your Thanksgiving furlough, Ken?” asked Russel Lee of his sailor chum.
“I don’t know,” he answered without much interest. “I thought of going to my old hoarding house.”
After a few moments of thought, Russel said with a bright smile on his face: “1 have it! Come home with me. Mother and Rosa will be glad to welcome you, and besides you’ll have the best Thanksgiving dinner you ever ate, for they are fine cooks.”
“Oh, no, don’t think of it. Why, I’d spoil your whole Thanksgiving,” said Kenneth.
“Come now, 1 know you want to come. I can see it in your face. You can pack up by tomorrow morning, for I won’t take no for an answer.”
“Well, if that’s the way you put it, why I’ll come,” answered Kenneth after a little hesitation.
So the two set about preparing for their journey which would last the greater part of the next day.
The dark, cloudy, November afternoon was fast merging into twilight. The trees, now gaunt and bare, creaked as the wind made their icy branches clink together.
But bleak November found no admittance in Mrs. Lee’s cozy parlor. Hers was a home of genial atmosphere, where one always felt welcome.
Rosa Lee. with her fresh, young. April face, was a pleasant contrast to the scene she gazed upon from the window, to which she flitted with increasing frequency. The light of happiness was on her face, and her expression was one of restless, eager expectancy, little wonder. Her brother, a sailor, who had been absent several long months, was coming home for Thanksgiving. She had just heard the distant shriek of the locomotive and her eager, young spirit could hardly wait until she would welcome her brother.
“Mother,” she cried, as she darted to the window, “he’s coming. I hear him,” and she flew to the doorway.
Without taking the time to look she threw her arms around a tall figure clad in a sailor’s uniform, and pressed a kiss upon his lips that he afterwards admitted to have felt to his toes. His startled manner caused her to draw away from him trembling, with wide open eyes. The awkward scene was interrupted by Russel’s hearty voice calling out:
“Hi there, Sis, who is that you are kissing, and then standing off to see the effect?”
The lamp’s light, shining through the open door, revealed the painfully embarrassed features of Kenneth, who managed to say:
“I think 1 was taken for you. I never had the pleasure—honor of meeting your sister.”
“Oh ho! 1 see now. My wild little sister kissed before she looked. Well, that was your good fortune,” cried the light hearted sailor. “You will hardly need a formal introduction now. But, bless me, where is she?”
“I think she passed around to the side entrance. I fear I have annoyed her greatly.”
Fifty-seven“Nonsense! A good joke to tease her about. But, come in, I’m forgetting the sacred rites.’’
Mr. Weathcrby was then taken into the lighted hall, where Mrs. Lee had appeared. After a warm, motherly greeting to her son she turned to whom she was being introduced.
After Kenneth had been given a hearty welcome, the boys went to their rooms, to prepare themselves for supper.
Rose went to her brother’s room and made him promise to say nothing of her mistake.
At the supper table. Rosa, who appeared very stiff, cast shy glances at Mr. Weatherby and her usual quickness discovered that he was more in terror of her than she of him.
The next morning he recognized that his presence was a hindrance to Rosa, and he was sorry he had come. lie ventured to say that he must trespass on their hospitality no longer. The family would not hear of it and besides as this was Thanksgiving day, they would not send him to a hotel to eat his Thanksgiving dinner.
Rosa and Russel guessed his reason for wishing to leave. Rosa’s kind heart began to feel sorry for him, and she cast him a friendly smile, then turned hastily away.
After a Thanksgiving dinner which Kenneth would never forget, Rosa and Russell gathered up a few of their friends for a little skating party.
Rosa avoided Kenneth as much as possible for her to do, but as the party was about to return, her handkerchief blew to the branch of a tree on the other side of the frozen pond, and as the rest of the party went on. Kenneth went after the handkerchief thinking it was a good chance to break the ice between them. Rosa waited for him to return with the handkerchief, wondering what she could say to him.
yhen she returned she still could not find anything to say, no matter how hard she tried, so they walked in silence for a few moments, Kenneth still holding the handkerchief.
At last he timidly extended her the handkerchief and said with some hesitation:
“Miss Lee, may I call the flying of your white handkerchief a flag of truce?”
She must have consented to call it a flag of truce, for the next Thanksgiving she became Mrs. Kenneth Weatherby.

A word of thanks is due these officials, from the student body for the capable manner in which they handled the athletics of the past year.
In the fall, talk of organizing a foot ball team, soon grew to a fact. Accordingly, a foot ball team, the first that ever represented Farrell Hi on the gridiron, was organized. All went well, until “old man flu” butted in and spoiled the chances of a good foot ball season. However, in the short time that there was a team, three games were played, but not enough to award any letters.
Following are the results of the games played and the players who represented the gridiron team:

fcixtyBasket Ball Review
Basket ball is the one big sport of our High School ancl we surely make the best of it. That our High School is represented by one of the fastest high school teams in this part of the country is evidenced by the fact that they won the Mercer County Championship for two years in succession. For the present, we will set this matter aside and dwell upon the record of the team this year.
Playing twenty-three games and winning fifteen of them with over half the games playe dabroad, is a record that not many a first class High school can boast of. This record is still made to seem greater when we remember that our team has met such quintets as Iviski, Slippery Rock, Charleroi, Pittsburgh Academy and other fast teams of Western Pennsylvania. All but one of the eight games lost were lost on a hostile floor. A “jinx” seemed to follow the team when they went abroad, as there was always some one player or two hurt and forced to retire from the game.
No other team in this section traveled as much this year as did our team. Five trips, each lasting two or more days, were made, besides a few one-day trips. One trip was made into the Pittsburgh district, another north of Greenville and Oil City, wtice to Grove City, to the two state normal schools, and to Franklin. There are many college teams that do not travel nearly so much. We have been recognized by all the high schools of the big cities as a team that will bear watching.
At the tournament the team showed its real worth by winning the cup for the second time in as many years. This is something tha tno other high school in the county has ever accomplished. Another win at the tournament would make us permanent possessors of the cup offered by the Grove City College. We have no doubt that the team of ’20 will do it, if they establish a record like that of the team of ’19.
With tho alumnae game the basket ball season was ushered in. Tho alumnae were walloped in a one-sided game by a 43-11 score. The team showed prospects for a good season. Score 43-11.

TOUGH TO LOSE.
In the first real game of the season the team lost to New Castle in the last few minutes of play. Our boys led all through the game until the last quarter when the “Nocks” spurted and caged four field goals in succession enabling them to get the lead on Farrell. Hartman's playing for New Castle was one of the deciding factors of the game. Laurell was Farrell's best bet. This was the only defeat suffered ‘by Farrell Hi on its home floor, this season.

Sixty-threeWOW! WE HEAT SHARON
One would think that more space would ho given to the Sharon game. Well, as a matter of fact, Sharon was as easy for us as any of our opponents.
After the first quarter, Sharon’s chances weren’t worth a “snap.” Our hoys got the jump on them and led all through the game. Laurell’s long shots coupled with the team work of our boys stood out as the big feature of thegame. Turner of Sharon performed best for his teammates. The final score was 33 20.

Sixty-fiveWinning the Cup
Again we met and beat Sharon. This time we met Sharon on the Grove City College tloor for our first game oftlie tournament. Sharon would have given anything to win in order to get a ehanee for the cup and get revenge for the “drubbing” they received earlier in the season.
The game started off with a rush, and scoring was not in evidence in the first few minutes of play. Then fate played against us when Joe’s shoulder was hurt. He stuck to the game and our fellows managed to keep Sharon on their toes through the whole first half. The end of the first half saw our boys a few points to the good.
In the second half, our boys came back stronger than ever and fought haixl. every minute of the game. The guarding of both teams was exceptionally close and it was anyone’s game until the last quarter. In this quarter our boys put on full force, and snowed Sharon under with an avalanche of field goals. Sharon tried hard to come back but our boys just wouldn’t see it that way. So ended one of the hardest fought games ever seen on the (trove City floor. Carroll’s floor work kept us in the running while Turner, Sharon’s main stay, was as helpless as a baby under Scoop. The game was clean throughout and was never slow at any time. The final whistles blew with the score 27-19 in our favor.

GROVE CITY LOSES GAME AND CUP
The big night arrived. Grove City and Farrell were to battle in the last game of the tournament for the coveted cup. A win for either team meant two legs on the cup for the winners. Consequently everything was in a high pitch of excitement. Grove City turned out in full force to root for the home team, while Farrell had almost an equal number of supporters.
The whistle blew and the game was on. Grove City drew first blood and this was closely followed by Carroll. The score “see-sawed” back and forth through the first quarter. Grove City led at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was even harder fought than the first. Our boys played an
Sixty-sixuphill same all through the first half and were behind a few points when the half ended.
Grove City came back strong the first quarter and for a while, things looked bad for our boys. At one time Grove City was leading by a margin of seven points. Our boys kept playing their uphill game and in the last quarter Grove City was given a taste of real basket ball. A few field goals put our boys in the lead and from that time on they seemed to have things their own way. The referee’s whistle announced the fact that the game was over and that FARRELL HIGH WON THE Cl P. By taking the cup again this year our team accomplished that which no other team in Mercer County has been able to do.

Sixty-sevenCAPT. “BRUNY” O'BRIEN Brunv has played four years on the High School team and was the best center this schol has ever had. He is tall and fast, and is a dead shot. Brunv's work at the tournament showed his qualities. Through graduation, the team loses Joe.
CAPT. ELECT, ADDIE CARROLL Addie is as fast a man on the floor as many a player on a college team. At foul shooting, this boy cannot be beaten, and some of his field goals are heart-breakers.
COACH “POP” DOWNS
Here you have “Pop” Downs, our coach. “Pop” was the hardest working man on the team and too much credit cannot be given him for developing a winning team. “Pop” is working for a third win at the tournament and no doubt he will get it.
BASKET BALL MEN
JACK LAURELL 11 Jenny'9 played his first year of varsity ball and showed up like an old timer. 1 Jenny ’ is a “bear” at long shots and rarely misses them. We look for even better basket ball from “Jenny” next year.
“SCOOP” MORRIS “Scoop” is a steady, reliable guard. Always keeps cool and gets the other fellow rattled. Scoop is not much on shooting, but he makes this up by his passing. Ho played a hard, consistent game throughout the whole season.
Irvin put up an exceedingly good brand of basket ball for his first year. His men very seldom got a basket on him and not many games were played without Irvin getting a basket or two. He is one of the hardest working men on the squad.
Sixty-nine“PANTS” KRESS “RUMMY” RUMBEL
Size did not hinder “Pants” Kress from “Rummy” breaks 'em up at guard. This
playing a good game the year round at heavy-set boy just naturally cleans up
the forward position. He is a fast passer everything that comes his way. He is a
but has had hard luck with his shooting good guard and can be depended upon at
this year. “Pants” is one of the small any time. “Rummy” leaves the team
cst and lightest fellows that played on this year by graduation,
a Farrell team.
“Nuppy” succeeded in making his position although handicapped by an injury. He is a plucky and willing lad and is always on the job at the opportune moment. “Nuppy”
graduates this year.
SeventyOur girls were unfortunate this season in arranging a schedule. Two games, both away from home, were all that were played. But just the same they were ready to do their bit in keeping the athletic spirit in Farrell liigh
The team consisted of Gertrude Forbes, Captain
the following players:
Anna Broscoe Beulah Smtih
Dorothy Weller, Manager
Helen Broscoe Olive Athey
The readers of this book may possibly know that there existed bitter rivalry among the different classes as to which class had the better team. This matter could not be decided until after the close of the varsity basket ball season. The rivalry even became greater after the varsity won the cup for the second time at Grove City.
Accordingly, after our team won the cup, an inter-class tournament was arranged. The winner of the tournament was to receive a silver cup.
In the early part of April the tournament commenced. In the first two games, the Seniors easily disposed of the Sophomores, and the Presides fell before the Jumors. The next two games saw the Juniors wallop the Sophs, while the Seniors, playing with four men had a hard time beating the Presides. Then the time for the big game—the Junior-Senior game—approached. Ac-eoi’ding to “statistics” the Seniors had no show whatever. For did not the Juniors have four regulars on the team, and they couldn’t possibly be beat. But the Seniors remained silent. They had confidence in their coach, “Mickey” Markovitz.
,The night of the big battle arrived. The haughty Juniors wore broad smiles on their faces before the game. The cup was theirs, so they thought, but the worm turns once in a while, and that night it did turn. The Juniors received the surprise of their life in the form of a 32-25 defeat and the cup, naturally, went to its rightful owners, the SENIORS.
Great was the victory for the Seniors for they not only beat the Juniors, but won the inter-class cup for the first year.
The line-up and score of that memorable battle was as follows:

Seventy-twoSeventy-threeSigma Delta Kappa
This club, composed of the boys of the Senior class, was organized for the purpose of bettering the social life of the students of Farrell High.
The many dances given by this club were of the best kind and greatly enjoyed by the teachers, students and alumni. To give a detailed report of each dance would be a little too much, but dances were held in the neighborhood of every three or four weeks.
This organization is the first of its kind in Farrell High and the High School may feel proud to be able to boast of such an organization. The club has proven a success and we sincerely hope that the Senior classes of future years will continue the club.
Below are the names of the officers and members of the Signa Delta Kappa.
President _____________________________________________________ Harold Rumbel
Vice President.....................................................Joe O ’Brien
Secretary ....................................................... Frank Kress
Treasurer ________________________________________________________ Homer Schell
“Mr.” Homer Schell pleasantly entertained the Senior Class at a Hallowe’en party at his home on Darr Avenue. An enjoyable time was spent by all those who attended. Games, dancing and fortune-telling were the diversions of the evening. At a late hour a “regular” Hallowe’en lunch was served and the guests departed declaring that they had the time of their lives.
Sam Adler John Connair John Kozar John Konnerth
Sam Sayers Martin Schell Max Markovitz Wilhelm Van Natten
Senior Class Society
Rumbel’s home on Davis street in Sharon was the scene of another Senior Class social. “Rummy” entertained the class at a Thanksgiving party. The games and dancing made the time “step lively” so that it was at a late hour when the most delicious lunch was served by Mrs. Rumbel. The guests then departed in “high spirits,” declaring that Mrs. Rumbel was “some cook.” Mr. Rumbel proved himself an excellent host.
The Senior Class entertained the High School team and the Titusville team in the gymnasium. Games and music were the main attractions of the evening. The guests departed in the “wee sma’ hours.” praising the hospitality of the Seniors.
On Thursday evening, Feb. 21. the Sophomores of Room 3 entertained the Sophomores of Room 6 at a class party held in the high school “gym.” It was a party to be well remembered by all present. A “freak dance” and a conundrum lunch were the two “hits” of the evening. Through the clever work of Miss Minehan and committee the party was a huge success and the Room 3 Sophomores wish the upper classmen had been there in order that they might see what real good fellowship means.
The Freshman Class held a party in the gym on May 9. There were about seventy-five present. Games and music were the main diversions of the evening. A program was carried out in the beginning of the evening.
Now you know that our faculty can teach, scold, and laugh, but do you know they also number basket ball among their accomplishments? Just to prove this statement, our faculty challenged the Sharon High faculty to a game. The Sharon faculty did not accept, but to further the spirit of cooperation our faculty entertained the aforesaid Sharon faculty one Thursday evening in April. A track meet was the center of interest and indeed, to say that it was humorous, to see the “Pedagogues” jumping, running, throwing the hammer and such like stunts was putting it mildly. Shaded lights, beautiful flowers, attractive dresses and smiling faces all lent their aid to making the tiny “banquet” at the end of the evening a success. The girls of the Household Arts department managed this so “necessary” part of the evening. and great credit is due them for their efficiency.
TO DR. HAROLD J. PARSONS
Over There in a quiet little cemetery lies the body of Harold J. Parsons, the silent representative of the gold star on our service flag.
After graduating from high school in 1913, Harold entered the dental school of the University of Pittsburgh. He completed the course there and later practiced at his profession in Erie. Hardly had he gotten started in his new work when the call came to him that Uncle Sam needed all his dentists to keep his soldiers in good fighting spirit.
He answered the call by enlisting in the army and, after a short training period, was sent to France. While there a request was made for dentist volunteers to work in the front line trenches. Harold, in true Yankee spirit, answered the call and proceeded where duty summoned him. He never returned from this mission. A German shell burst near him and so wounded him that he lived only a few hours after being hit.
The news of his death cast a gloom over our High School. On January 21 of this year the students gathered in the auditorium to pay tribute to their hero. Rev. Dodds of the Methodist Church gave a very appropriate talk at this time. He had known Harold from childhood and was able to bring before the students many facts which caused them to feel more keenly their great loss. The students joined in the services by singing “America” and the “Star Spangled Banner.” A solo “I Do Not Ask” was rendered by Mrs. Turner.
For the sake of the tortured and bleeding soul of Humanity, Harold Parsons gave his life and we know that it has not been in vain.
“THE PLAY’S THE THING’’
For a number of years Farrell has had hidden in its depths, a number of students with remarkable “histrionic” ability. Under the efficient leadership of Miss Livingood this ability has been discovered and developed.
The students have displayed their intense interest in these plays not only by their shining eyes when Prof. Imler announced there was to be a new play, but also by the manner in which they worked to make each one a success. As conditions were a little strained in this great big world of ours, this year, it was decided to give comedies and lighten the tension “a bit.”
Each class was represented by a play and there were two plays in which the characters represented all classes. Each one met with signal success and great indeed was the praise accorded Miss Livingood and her casts of “stare.” The beauty of the students was enhanced each time by a corps of teachers who could delve down in a big box and produce all sorts of mysterious jars and sticks which promised to give the desired “effect.”
Reflecting the true spirit of the High School the first play that was produced was “Professor Pepp.”
, PROFESSOR PEPP
To say merely that it was a success would not do it full justice. The play was presented in a most clever manner and was lauded by all those who attended. At the request of the Farrell people, the play was repeated.

Professor Strebig, realizing the fame that Keith has acquired through his vaudeville acts, decided to “try out’’ his “Angels” in a like performance and see if they were not the equal of or even the superior of Keith’s “Stars.”
Each number on the program was the “hit” of the evening and it was impossible to choose any particular cherubim as the reigning “Angel.”
THE COLLEGE TOWN
“The College Town” was presented by the Juniors. It was decidedly humorous. David Neiman in his role was particularly good as were Rosenberg and Morris. In fact each one was excellent in his own role. However, poor Mr. Popp was “henpecked”, wasn’t he?

We’ve liked the Seniors, yes, very much, and we will miss them, but will always hope that life holds many secrets for them she will confide in a happy and friendly way.

Ninety-fourEach Voice Distinct
EACH voice is distinct, and the sound of every instrument too, in the records made by Columbia. More than thirty famous quartettes — men, women, mixed and instrumental — sing and play for Columbia Records.
The best of the old and the latest of the new is the music they sing and play—the good old tunes you love to hear and the latest popular hit you’re wild to listen to.
And Columbia Records are equally strong and complete throughout the whole range of music.
Grafonolas and Records
To get the fullest value from these splendid records, play them on the Grafonola. Overtones, undertones, blended harmony—every shade of modulation is as clear as if the singers and instrumentalists were right in our store. We have a complete stock of both records and instruments. Come in and let us demonstrate.Freshman Air—Continued

709 Broadway Sam Reckert, Prop.
New Castle High came first of all,
To play a game of basket ball.
The summer months had been so long. Everything seemed to go all wrong,
We tried, but when the game was through, We, twenty-eight, they, thirty-two.
Next came our friends from Slippery Rock, The game went on just like a clock,
The minutes flew, the game was done,
The score was read, and we had won. Slippery Rock, we guess had plenty,
They, eighteen, but we had twenty.
Down to Farrell, then Mercer came, Confident she’d win the game.
Very soon, she changed her mind.
As she fell away behind.
Sadness on each face was seen,
We, thirty-seven, they, nineteen.
Some Pittsburgh lads, we next did see, They came from Pitt Academy;
We thought we's see some “ experts” play, But Farrell has “experts” every day,
We beat them square, the game was fine, They, twenty-eight, we, forty-nine.
Then Franklin came to show her skill,
But when she left, she had her fill,
They did their best to win the game,
And add some glory to their name,
They played fine, but began too late,
They got but nine, we, twenty-eight.
Grove City thought she’d join the fight,
So she jumped in with all her might,
Of course we won, we played for fair,
We made them wish they weren’t there; Farrell went right up to twenty-seven. While Grove City quit at eleven.
Next came an Edinboro team
Whose points came few and far between,
But Farrell's points grew more and more,
E ’en though our 1 scrubs ’ ’ came on the floor,
E. S. X. S. did meet her fate,
They got ’leven, we, forty-eight.
Then Titusville dropped in one night,
But soon they left, a sorry sight,
Their heads were bowed, their faces sad Did Farrell care? Oh, we were glad,
You couldn’t blame us, for our team Had scored twenty-seven, they fifteen.
Myrna A. Dunham ’19.
Some Greenville chaps we walloped next, Those Greenville boys, they sure were vexed, Those Greenville boys, they sure were vexed, They came to show us they could play,
We showed them ’twas the other way,
When “time” was called and the game was done,
We had thirty, they, twenty-one.
Last of all came Rochester High,
“They’re easy game,” was Sharon’s cry, Sharon said, “Now don’t you worry,
You’ll finish Farrell in a hurry.”
They came to Farrell, just for some fun,
We, forty-three, they, twenty-one.

As I stand on the brink of a mountain stream. Gazing out o’er the green expanse,
.My eyes meet fields of waving grain.
Where brown-eyed daisies dance To a rollicking spring-time melody.
Wafted forth on the fresh May air;
’Tis the little birds who are keeping time To the nod of the flowers fair,
While the bubbling brook runs merrily on,
In its own quaint, mystic way,
Adding its bit to Nature’s month.
The glorious month of May.

One Hundred ThreeBeating Sharon
Our biggest game of the season nineteen,
The very best game that has ever been seen,
Was 1 he game we played with Sharon High,
Both teams were out to do or die.
The game was played on Buhl Club floor,
The place was filled clear past the door;
Excitement reigned in each one’s breast,
Farrell and Sharon were put to the test.
The noise was so loud and feelings were bold,
Sharon knew they could win (so we had been told),
But ah, poor sad hearts, ’midst all the confusion,
Poor Sharonits sank into their disillusion.
Our unconquerable team came upon the Buhl Club floor.
We cheered with all our breath, then we cheered some more. But woe, to Sharon, when they saw our boys emerge,
Oup Farrell hoys were singing them a funeral dirge.
At nine bells, the shrill-like whistle blew,
Sharon was still confident (but only Farrell knew)
Just how the outcome of 1 his great game would he;
Sharon kept on boasting. Farrell waited to see.
The referee was a square Grove City chap.
His appearance upon the floor resounded with a clap;
As he gave our boys fouls, Sharon was crestfallen,
This renowned referee was only Bill Allen.
The game progressed. The feelings—T cannot descry, Farrell was filled with life. Sharon wanted to die.
Basket after basket our clever forwards shot,
And even our guards—we must forget them not.
Their guarding was superior, you could see they weren’t new. There such an awful lot of things Sharon couldn’t do;
But we’ve come to the point how Farrell achieved fame, ’Twas by defeating Sharon High—winning that great game.
The score was what we had expected. Farrell thirty-three; Sharon scored twenty whole points. Scientific, you see.
Just to make this short and give due credit to Sharon,
We’ll admit they played some game, their cheers endearin’. Of course they had an alibi, showed their ’mount of pluck, They said that we would not have won
IF WE HADN’T BEEN IN LUCK.

Englishman traveling through the Southern States with Sambo, a colored servant): “Oh, how 1 wish I was in England. I long for my native country, the things in this country are so small. The buildings are only shacks, one story high. Everything is smaller than they are in England. Everything there beats what you have here.
Sambo: “Well, sir, you ain’t seen much of America, sir.”
That evening Sambo decided to play a trick on the old Englishman, just to show him the “size of things in America.” He caught a small turtle and put it in the Englishman’s bed. Upon discovering the turtle, the Englishman cried. “Oh, Sambo, what is this in my bed?”
Sambo: “Oh, sir, that is an American bed bug, sir, can you beat it in England, sir?”
It was at a fair. A man came up and said to a speculator: “Mr., dddo you sssell ddddem hhhorses?” “Yes,” replied the speculator. “Hhhow much wwill yyyyou ssssell that hlihorse for?” “Make your own price,” replied the speculator. “Iiiill ggive yyou ffffff—” “All right,” said the speculator, “you can have it for forty dollars.” “I wwas gggoing tto ssssay ffffffifty dollars,” replied the man who stuttered.
