Accordingly we took up our work, determined to test the judgment of our overseers. We, being separated from the more learned students, such as the Sophomores, juniors and Seniors, during our Freshman year, escaped being embarrassed by our superiors. When the lirst year was over, the fall of 1917 witnessed a group of belligerents entering Central High with the determination to hold their own against their superiors and every conceivable device was brought into play to carry on the offensive. In many cases our most effective weapon was the "horse", At this particular stage of the game we were somewhat unsophisticated, but as days rolled by we adapted our- selves to the new life, soon became acquainted with the slang phrases of the professor and his allies and in due time learned to "govern ourselves accordingly" as Professor Finton was once heard to remark. We held our own all through the year and in the end we waited anxiously for those muchdreaded long, white envelopes which came through the mail and announced our defeat or victory. Although a few fell by the wayside, most of us entered triumphantly the next fall as Juniors. As Juniors our class was organized for the first time and Marion Conaway was chosen to lead the forces in the campaign of 1918-19. At the beginning of the year we received quite a setback, caused by that dreaded malady "flu," but owing to our natural ability to cope with any obstacle, which might arise, we forged our way to the front. At the close of the school year we put on our class play, "Bachelor Hall," in which some of our famous actors and actresses featured. It was the concensus of opinion of those in attendance that many of the students were destined to take their place beside such notable characters as Drew, Sothern, Marlowe and 'Charlie Chaplin. We have at last reached the grand finale of our high school career with the largest class of Seniors that ever graduated from Findlay high school. VVe were very for- tunate in having a suffragette for a president, one who has administered the affairs of her office with marked ability. It is to be noted that in some instances more work has been accomplished by this class than any other Senior class of previous Years. It is also well worth while to note the exceptional mental ability which has been dem- onstrated by the large number of Seniors who have done ninety per cent work all through their four years' course. On a certain day during the Senior year a dastardly crime was committed by us which, in any other civilized country would have been tried in the courts of justice and the criminals prosecuted to the full extent of the law, Many crimes are pardonable, but this was an unpardonable sin, premeditated with malice of forethought. It might be said in justice to the members of the Senior class, known as the fair sex, that they were merely witnesses to the crime, not taking any active part whatever, but justice surely will come to the ones that took active part in placing that costly piece of green and yellow tapestry, the principal ingredient of which was cheesecloth, on the flag- staff and on that day which was sacred to the Juniors. Perhaps when the juniors become Seniors they can do unto others as has been done unto them. Our class has always been to the front in civic affairs, having contributed liberally to the Chamber of Commerce and we sincerely hope that as a result the pupils in the near future may have the benelit of a new high school building with every available modern equipment. This year it was decided to have class debates instead of plays. These debates have brought out some masterpieces of eloquence. However, two very clever plays were also staged, the first being "It Pays to Advertise," by the Commercial Club, and the second, the annual class play, "She Stoops to Conquer." Our Senior year is fast approaching the end and a few more weeks will see the students gathering up the debris. It is with some regret that we drag these old books. pencils, broken shoe strings, cosmetics, mirrors, finger nail files and so forth out of our desks to take home either for the future generation to use or to store away in the attic, where they will be further mutilated by the moths and buffalo bugs. Above all we are going to be able to say, whatever our lot may be, that our happiest days were spent in Findlay High School. -MARY MARKS.

One man cannot raze a mountain, but the combined efforts of many men constitute a power that can remove it from pole to pole. One shot may not rout an army, but a fussillade represents the power to win a victory. Power is the result of accumulation by strength of forces. One cent, a penny, may seem of little consequence. It is the small change of our monetary system-but it is the continuous accretion of the small change of all things in life that counts. The creed of true financial power is a resolute habit to steadily increase the bank account, and the use or abuse of the power that develops, determines the world- ly success of its possessor.

WARFEL 8: SON JEWELERS THE CREED OF ALL LATIN STUDENTS ' My pony is my helper. I shall not Hunk. He maketh me to have good translations and leadeth me to much glory. He raiseth my standing: he leadeth me into the path of wisdom for credit's sake. Yea, tho I plod thru the four hooks of Caesar, I shall feel no failure, for he is with me, Thy words and thy phrases, they comfort me, Thou preparest my lessons in spite of my instructorsg thou crownest my head with fame and my standing runneth high. Surely, praise and recognition shall follow me all the days of my school life and my pony shall dwell in my library forever.

Competition is the life of business you know. The Reverend Vernon Vandersall is conducting revival meetings on Broadway Ufindlabh UNOJ. Paul Cramer is lea'ding the singing, assisted by many volunteers, including the following: Pearl Allen, Kath- aryn Sherrick, Ruth Taylor, Guyla Kroske, Grace Inbody and Russell McBride. Through the wonderful eloquence of Rev. Vandersall, many people are hitting the trail every night and great success is assured the meeting. Lawrence Peschel is at present the editor of the Morning Republican. On the same paper Miss Margaret NVeissling edits the "Home Econimics" column, Miss Vera Ross, under the pen name of "Ima Peach," has the Beauty Hints department, and Miss Ruth Meeker the society section. There are a number of the old class on the present high school faculty. Miss Ethel Cusac as prin- -cipal, has perfect order at all times. Miss Bessie Heimhofer in French an'd Miss Edith Fuller in Spanish, are teaching Juniors and Seniors how to "parlez" and "hablar". Miss Ethel Bellinger has the Literature Department and Frances VVeist the Domestic Science. Zella Sharninghouse as instructoress in Cicero and Vergil has sanctioned the use of "ponies" and her classes are crowded to capacity. Pro- fessoress Alice Evans is trying to teach thick-skulled Juniors that HZO is water. Dudley Lea is president of the Self-Lifting Piano Truck Co., a growing concern employing nearly one thousand men. Mr. Lea married Miss Mary Marks a few years ago. Harold Bryan is General Manager of the same company. The Misses Martha Trout, Fae Severns, Lena Stoker and Elsie Russell are operating the Viola Beauty P'arlors. If we judge by past indications the business of this establishment should be flourishing. Miss Helen Van Voorhis is the president oi a very aristocratic girls' finishing school located in the suburbs of McComb. At the same school Miss Katherine XVells teaches Domestic Silence and Miss Margaret Priddy has classes in "Dignity and Correct Social Manners." Miss Margaret Reber instructs the Psychology classes while Miss Josephine Reed holds the important position of Disciplinarian. I al- ways knew that Joe was pretty good at that stuff. On the train going to Chicago I met Richard Hopper and Lester ll einland, two of the best traveling salesmen in the country. Both are receiving immense salaries. They became proficient in this work at an early age when they "traveled" hetween McComb and Findlay in going to and from school. In the XVindy City I met Dr. Herman Gibson, who is considered one of the best dentists in the middle west. I wonder if Herman draws the patients by his wonderful gift 0' gab. Roscoe Shoupe is the president of the Postal Telegraph Co., with his o .... ce in Chicago. Philip Reimund has succeeded NVillie Hoppe as the champion billiard artist of the world. Franklin Reed is at present operating the motion picture machine at the Lyric Theatre. Miss Josephine Edwards and Miss Gladys Hamprecht are starring in Mack Sennett Comedies. Their pictures have scored a hit wherever shown. In St. Louis I stopped 08' at the Hotel Statler, of which Arthur Edie is the manager. At the same hotel were Mr. and Mrs. Roderick McClure, who are touring the country in the interests of the Anti- Chewing Gum Association. Mrs. McClure will be remembered as Miss Katherine NVisely before her mar- riage. Iu'dge LowelllDorsey and his wife Cnee Ethel Slatcherl are attending the convention of the National Bar Association now being held in St. Louis. One of the brightest careers of the entire class is that of Miss Frances Garber, who is cartoon editor on the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Well, I believe that I have included every one in this piece of modern history and will close, wish- ing all the best luck in the future. 1 1 Yours sincerely, FRED R. BYAI..

THE BLUE AND GOLD The high school football team was badly in need of halfvbacks. We sent into the breach two of our number, George Williams and Wilbur Rhinehart, who saved the day for the school. ' Outside of a matter of buying some four Liberty Bonds, supplying orators for the Thrift-Stamp campaign, and money for the Junior Red Cross, the rest of the year passed quietly. The next year saw us subjected for the first time to the terrible scrutiny of Mr. Finton's piercing eye, and intro'duced us to the mysteries of the United States Mail Cas carried on in F. H. SJ At last we felt like full-fledged members of Mr. Finton's large and thriving family. Vl'e struggled along man- fully, trying to discover why Caesar couldn't have waited until we came before he built his bridge. And why, if x equals a cow, and y equals grass, does the square on the hypotenuse equal the area of the circle, or only the length of the transversal cutting a tangent to a cube? KA Sophomore's niglitmarel During the year, every one was saddened by the loss of Herbert Swartz, who was one of the best liked of our classmates. The whole school felt sincerely sorry that a life so promising should be so cruelly and su'ddenly terminated. This year has been the best of all, and we have tried to be the jolliest of jolly Juniors, friends of had the pleasant experiences of all Juniors in observing the blunders of the Sophomores. This year has been the best of all, and w have tried to be the jolliest of jolly Juniors, friends of everybody except on class days, when we felt it to be our bounden duty to defend the honor of our class, We presented the Christmas rhetoricals, but were not given a chance to put on spring rhetoricals because of the inter-class debates, which I dare not fail to mention. Dfd we not humble the mighty Seniors on three occasions out of four, and so win the right to dis- play our class colors on the debte banner, right up above the assembly room blackboard? This is the outstanding achievement of the Junior Class. We Juniors claim to be nothing if we are not fair-minded, and we think that the Senior and Sopho- more classes this year are perhaps deserving of the most unstinted praise, but we reserve the right to consider our class the best that ever went through F. H. S. Soon we shall be Seniors, and shall eamestly endeavor to be in the school all that a Senior Class should be, and to raise, if possible, the high standard of fair play and co-operation which has guide'd our school through so successful a year. -J.

Stifling a yawn, he cautiously looked over the horizon. Seeing that there were no clouds to obstruct his right of way, he started forth on his daily journey across the sky, "Today is the first day of school," thought he. "I shall make up for the gloom in the children's hearts hy shining as brightly as possible." And he "governed himself accordingly." The Sophomore Sons and Daughters had no such charitable outlook on life, however. This was the day when they must suffer in silence the jeers of the "upper classmenf' They had so far escaped this necessary humiliation, for during their verdant Freshman year they had come, had seen, and had conquered, and had hence- forth and forever more been lords of all they surveyed. But this year! Oh! unpleasant thoughts-vanish! The realization was as unpromising as the anticipation. After enduring the contemptuous glances of the learned of the land, all the Sophs were seated in the awesome confines of the Assembly Room. Mr. Finton made endless speeches, interm- inable assignments to c!asses, in which he made frequent explanations "for the benefit of those who are in the school for the first time." Oh! death! where is thy sting! Even the faculty seemed to think there was no limit to Sophomore endurance. At last the seemingly endless morning was over. After this first wearisome and nerve-racking morning had come to a disagreeable end, the feeling of insigniticance was somewhat lessened. Nevertheless the Sopho- mores were ever reminded that they have a long way to navigate on the teinpestuous sea of learning before they come safely in calm waters on board the good Senior-ship. The members of this abused class. however, were not to be thus lightly cast aside. "Truth crushed to earth will rise again." For the first time in the annals of Findlay High School. the Sophomores were given the privilege of having a part in the selection of morning exercises. XYhen the .-Xrmy Essay Contest opened. the incredibilissimus parvus class re- sponded nobly. Indeed, one out of our midst, Jack Betts, carried off the highest honor of all by getting his Essay sent to.Toledo. Late in the year a Literary Club was organized. Talent along literary lines was shown in the original "master-pieces." '17 In the Opera. Mikado, two of the principals, Ruthanna Davis and Gladys Needles. were of our illustrious class. Their ability as prima-donnas was unquestionable. During the Red Cross Drive, the Sophomores surpassed the higher classes, despite Mr. Finton's dark predictions to the contrary. Gentle readers, do not think we are ignominiously and vaingloriously "bragging," but we wish to impress upon the minds of those who may'be' doubtful about tlieuim- portance of our class that we are not to he lightly considered. XYe now leave our place of honor l?l as the youngest and accordingly most beloved one of the family to the Freshies with all good wishes for their success. -BY RUTH RISSER.

The teachers wondered why the boys' shoes shone like mir- rors and the girls' dresses looked like pieces of the rainbow. The only scientific reason Miss Jacobs could conceive was that we were Freshmen. Yes, we were taunted by our fathers and mothers, uncles and aunts, and oh my, by all the rest of our relatives! Never were we so glad to hurry to our seats when that dear old electric gong soun'ded. We all had to listen to several orations from the teachers before receiving our class time schedules. Such a time as we did have in finding our classes! Some of the pupils were lucky to get to two of their classes out of the four. Jay Reed, wishing to go to bookkeeping the third period found himself confronted by the Latin class. Thus, as "Freshies" we continued to make blunders for several weeks, but with all this we soon found ourselves on the road to knowledge. Football and basketball became a pastime of the boys. A few girls were interested enough to try to organize a girls' basketball team, but were unsuccessful in securing a coach. The student body was very enthusiastic over the athletic events and often turned out to cheer the players at practice. A great event in November was the organization of two literary societies, Philophronea and Clei- horetea. Programs were given every two weeks under the direction of the two societies. A contest was held between the societies in selling Christmas seals in which the Cleihoreteans were victorious by fifty cents. This competition created a friendly opposition. Not long after the organization of the literary societies, five clubs were organized, namely, Astronomy, Social Service, Art, Nature Study and Pathfinders. These clubs met after school at the building and at homes of members. The aim was two-fold-work an'd play. It was rumored that the Astronomy Club visited the moon at one of the social gatherings. The greatest event of the year was a Cantata, "The Rose Maiden," given by the Washington-Lincoln Freshmen. It was under the supervision of Mr. Richards. Mr. Richards is the well-known soprano, although he does not sing in the same pitch as other girls do as he told us one day during practice. Plans are being made for several club picnics and banquets. There are also plans made for a Lincoln- Vilashington picnic thus uniting their forces for their September drive. But all good times, brought by early spring are soon to be cnt short. The last of May is fast approaching and accompanying it, the last days of the Washington Freshmen Class 1923. Some may be left behind, but the majority are going on, leaving their wonderful work as Freshmen to be put down on record. -JOHN ROBERTS. Page Thirty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD OUR' Ol'Ci'le5tl'8 "Frienlds, Cleihoretcans and fellow classmates," thus boomed the voice of the grave and dignified secretary ot the Cleihoretean Literary Society over the deep stillness ol' the room. "We have with us today. at an enormous cost. one of the most talented, disting1iishe'd and noted orchestras in the Held of music today. l, as the official representative of nw society, take great pleasure, in fact, great ride in lveingable to introduce to you the XVashing'ton High School orchestra." There was a Hourish of: violins and violin bows, ot clarinets and comets and with a crash the musicians attacked the overture of their tmstpublte appearance. ln spite of the fact that the Manual Training Department had to be called in to repair. a broken violin before the program could begin a thunder of applause proved that at last the W ashmgton School had achieved a successful orchestra. The personnel of the orchestra follows: Mr. Abbot, faculty a'dvisor: Reed Carruthers, student manager and first violin: Elmo T ner, student director and first viohn: Paul Day and Lester Elsea, second violins: Gladys Reimund and, George Hildebrand, elarinetists: Cobrun Vandersoll and Harold Parsons, cornetists, assisted by Thelma Stowe, drummer, and Mrs. Abbot, pianist. -ELMO P. TYNER. Social Service Club The Social Service Club, tme to its name, was organized with the expectation of real work as well as good times. At the tirst meeting, which was held in December, Kenneth Tyner was electeld president, and Mildred Smith, secretary, with Miss Jacobs, the facult advisor. At the bi-weekly meetings there were spirited discussions upon such topics as school plans, health and hygiene, accident prevention, and vegetable and tlou-er gardening. -MILDRED SMITH.

We like Ruth's playing. She can play well. Ruth is a good girl to play for us. VVe sing when our school gives a program. We can sing many songs. NVe are in three groups: the horrible, the miserable and the terrible. I am a horrible one. The terribles carry the high part, the miserables the low, an'd the horribles the medium. Our aim is to let people know we are the great singers that we are. ' -MARY KATHERINE STEVENSON. The Art Club Troubled days of indecision preceded the organization of the Art Club. The motto "No Women Allowed," closed to us the door of the 'Pathfinder's Club. None of us are star-gazers: we are not interested in other folks' back yards: we all knew a tree when we saw it, so we finallv decided to join the Art Club. Miss Bolton, as our faculty advisor. led us through numerous mental difficulties concerning paint- ings. Our ignorance was 'displayed when 'Bettv Wagner disnlayed the picture of "The Three VVise Men" as a typical Madonna. 'Marv Katherine Stevenson made the startling discovery that in Stuart's famous portrait of George Xvashington. the uucer expression about his mouth was caused by false teeth. XVe were informed that "The Avenue of Trees" was not il display of paint brushes, We were so delighted with our discoveries that we agreed to pass them on. Fertain members of our club gave "art" talks for the lwnetit of the student body. Membership in the club makes it possible for us to see Dr. Fox's col- lection of reproduced paintings and to take a trio to the Art Museum at Toledo. If you wish to see how we look, just examine Reynold's painting, "The Age of Innocence." -RUTH WISELEY. The Astronomy Club Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are! But after the Astronomy Club was formed, we foun'd out what you are. Orion. although a brave hunter, is Irving to run away from Sirius, the dog, and he also makes offerings to Taurus. the bull, to keep out of danger. Near at hand the pale 'Pleiades are looking on the struggle. The race of Ursa Maior, l'rs Minor, Auriga and Fassiopeia, around Polaris, is very interesting to Paul Day, our president. We went along with the first rocket to the Moon: craters, mountains and seas rnct our eyes. We were very much frightened because lohn Roberts only weighed six nounds and Miss Battrick, attempting to iump over a large stone, jumped so high that she went out of sight. Of course the Aurora Borealis of 'March 22 was beautiful, but you should have been with us and seen the cause: it was nothing except that Helen l,ydic, our secretary, fell into a sun spot and caused an eruption. Yes, twinkle on, little star, we now know what you are. -'PAUL DAY. The Pathfinder Club The Pathfinder Fluh is a boys' organization of the Washington 'Ffigh School nf 1920.

No, not schoolglligh School. This day on which we could proudly call -should we call ourselves Freshmen? The bearers of the name and the name itself are due for a lot of ridicule, sneers, etc., but-yes, we would call ourselves "l"reshies," realizing that some day we would be equal to our old and dignified predecessors who call themselves Seniors, Yes, indeed! The first day passed off splendidly for us. Not many mistakes were made, although some lost track of their schedules and had to go to Miss Kiefer and have her look up their assigned classes for them. The worst thing of all was the little bell by Miss Kicfer's desk, which dismissed and assembled classes. Several were seen starting violently, when that shrill noise went through a bashful, timid, quiet class. Then came a day when we were honored by being invited to the Senior rhetoricals, My! Our wise, aged superiors looked upon us as a mother would upon her child. "Bless our hearts!" At last we decided to have clubs and have our own rhetoricals. XYe were divided into four groups- a group of boys under Mr. Green, another under Mr. Martin, a group of girls under Miss Kiefer, and Miss Cratty, another un'der Miss Moore and Miss Culler. This proved a success and we had quite a number of interesting programs, sometimes assisted by the school orchestra. Hello, the next thing on the line was the first Mothers' meeting. That was a happy time-for them We amused, or rather entertained, the mothers by showing off our cultivated voices under the direction of Mr. Richards. Now came the speeches from the pupils over at Central High. They came over here to get us interested, and they did. The first one was given by Albert Boss for the Athletic Association. The next one, or rather the next two were given in behalf of the Y. M. F, A., by Frank Slick and Clarence Fox. Next came the speech by Richard Martz. He talked on debates and urged us to hear some over at Central High School. At last came the time when we decided to be black sheep and outcasts of Central High rio longer. We held our fourth pep meeting of the year directed by jack Leader. lt was decided that -'ive ask to have a share in the Blue and Gold. This was requested as the first step towards our rights of Central High. It was a struggle but in the end we won. For other things also, such as sending the basketball team to Delaware, we sent in our money. XVe took, or rather tried to take tleave it to Central High, did we?J just as active a part in their school athletics, etc., as if we were over there ourselves. And so, this is the way we passe'd our never-to-be-forgotten first year of High School. Much fun, but much, much more work was enjoyed Uj but we did it, so let's give a toast: "Here's to the Freshmen pupils and teachers, May the teachers live long and happy, and may the pupils live to be-Seniors. Rah! Rah! Q N -JESSIE ALTbLHUl.. Page Thirty-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD School Organizations The Nu Beta Alpha Club The Nu Beta Alpha Club was formed December 2, 1919, by a group of girls of the Lincoln High School, under the guidance of Miss Kiefer. At the tirst meeting, the following otficers were elected: Selma Alexander, our mighty Presidentg Willa Hough, dignitied Yice-Presidentg Cecile Mooniey, our trusty Treasurer, and Margaret Renninger, Secretary and Reporter. Later Ruth Mitchell was elected tirst critic an'd Sarah Newcomer, second critic. At the lirst few meetings miscellaneous programs were given. In these, ways and means of bettering our school were earnestly discussed. Toward the end of the year, the members took up the study of "Great Masterpieces of Painting." lt was under the auspices ol this club with the Epsilon Tau Chi Club assisting, that the first rhe- toricals lor the year were given. This was December 19, 1919. Of course they were a success. After a short program, consisting of Christmas music and the reading of Henry Van Dyke's "The Other Wise Man," the two clubs treated the rest of the school to a real Christmas party including Santa Claus, pres- ents and refreshments. The other clubs followed suit and it was on February 20, 1920, that we again made our appearance with the E. T. C.'s on an improvised stge, which the villain, hero, arid all the rest of the characters of our play kindly gave their assistance to build. This time the two clubs presented two scenes from John lJrinkwater's famous play, "Abraham Lincoln." The girls also helped keep the assembly room cheery by polishing the silver plate on the piano, and occasionally washing the book-case doors, so the pupils could see the books through the glass. XYe now pass on and leave our guiding constitution for the coming Nu Beta Alpha Clubs of Lincoln High. The Lincoln Llp-to-Date Club The Lincoln Up-to-Date Club was organized in January, 1920. It was composed of twenty-six boys, their object being to study the lives of living as well as deceased great men. Mr. Martin has acted as the faculty advisor. 1 , ,, V, ,LA The tirst meeting was held january 6, 1920, an'd the following officers were elected: President, George Schwartzg Vice-President, John Hazel, Secretary-Treasurer, Richard Oswaldg Reporter, Richard Hosler. A constitution was drawn up and adopted by the society. At each meeting talks were given by members of the club on the lives of great men and their activities. The society gave two rhetoricals during the year, one in January in honor -of the birthdays of Franklin and McKinley, and one in April, giving the play "Hiawatha," The society has been a great help as well as a source of pleasure for the members and a complete success in obtaining the object for which it was founded. -RICHARD OSWALD. Epsilon Tau Chi The Epsilon Tau Chi society was the first boys' club organized in the Lincoln High School. It was iormcld the latter part of November and immediately got down to business with Mr. Green as faculty advisor. At the tirst meeting we chose cardinal and gray for our colors and elected the following officers: President, Harold Hillg Yice-President, Newton Priddyg Secretary, Ray Jones. We have not had much chance to show our mettle, but when we do anything we do it thoroughly. We have tried to get a better understanding between teachers and the pupils and are always rea'dy to do anything to secure this. 1Ve assisted the girls of the Nu Beta Alpha Club in their Christmas program, and with their help gave a XVasliington-Lincoln program on Feb. 20. VV4: had several essays on the lives of these men by different students. Following these we gave two scenes from John Drinkwater's "Abraham Lincoln." The first scene was a sample of Lincoln's home life. The second showed a scene in lGencral Grant's headquarters during the war. These scenes were made very realistic by the costumes of the characters. The success of this play was due largely to Miss Kiefer's patient drilling and coaching. -HAROLD HILL.

The Variety Club was organized December 4, 1919. The object of the club was to have a variety Page Thirty-eight THE BLUE AND GOLD of topics discussed at each meeting. There were many interesting discussions on the subject of etiquette. The Variety Club, under supervision of Miss Moore and Miss Culler, and the Lincoln Up-to-Date Club, with Mr. Martin as leader, gave two rhetoricals. The first one being on January 30, 1920, in honor of Theodore Roosevelt and William McKinley. The second one waas given April 2, 1920. This was a play entitled, "Hiawatha".

B ert Gunderman The Parent-Teachers, Association of the Lincoln School On the second Thurs'day of October, 1919, the Home and School Club of the Lincoln High School entered upon the fourth year of its useful career with Mrs. Geo. Byal, President, Miss Kiefer, Vice-Presi- dent, and Mrs. C. E. Kramer, Secretary and Treasurer. At this meeting the Club awarded the honors for the year 1918-1919 to Ruthanna Davis, for the highest average for the year, and to Esther Inbody, for the greatest number of points gained during the year. The symbol of these awards were fountain pens. During the year the teachers and mothers of the pupils of the seventh and eighth grades of the Lin- coln School have become a part of the organization, which now becomes known as the Parent-Teacher Association of the Lincoln School. VVith an initial membership of almost one hundred the organization sought and has obtained admission to the National Parent4Teacher Association, an organization of world- wide usefulness. This organization has the distinction of being the first one of its kind to be established in connection with the public schools of Findlay. Others have sprung up, but this one is the only one that has sur- vived to tell the tale of its heroic struggle for existence. Cantata "The Rose lvlaiclenn On Friday evening, May the seventh, under the direction of Mr. Richards, the two Freshman schools combined in presenting Frederic H. Cowen's beautiful and popular Cantata, "The Rose Maiden." The chorus of two hundred young voices were assisted in the solo parts by Mrs. Richards, soprano, Miss Edna Moore, rnezzo-soprano, Mr. Forest Jacobs, tenor, and Mr. George White, baritone. The difficult score was played by the Chapman orchestra. This is by far the most notable musical event ever given in Findlay-notable as the harbinger Of great things in the future musical life of the city. JOKES L. H.

Need For An Organization to Promote School ACt1V1t1eS It is no longer a secret that our athletic treasury is in a rather depleted condition-so depleted in fact, that we all shudder when the business manager mounts the rostrum to tell us that funds to finance athletics can no longer be found, not even with the aid of the "lab" microscope. The Findlay High School squad of 1919-20 practiced without proper equipment, made a poor showing, received no sweaters, due to- a lack of funds. A4certain town near Fin'dlay and sometimes considered a rital, had the best of material, made a fine showing, and gave sweaters to ,every member of their squad that deserved one. The ditference is due to the fact that Findlay did not have a member of the faculty to coach, but were forced to hire a coach from the outside with money from. the limited athletic fund. The Findlay High School squa'd, thinking this handicap should be removed, asked for a faculty coach. So that the same condition would not exist next year, they were promised that their request would be complied with. Before the above matter came up, a meeting was held by some of the boys from the High School. Incidentally at this meeting and the two that followed, it became apparent that there was a great need for an organization of the whole school: an organization to promote more and better school activities. An effort to secure such an organization was made, but this effort may not be successful, in which case it will be necessary to keep on making efforts until the desired organization is perfected, To fulfill the great need, and to correct many things every bit of pep in the High School will have to be or antzed , g' an'd directed in the proper channels. ' . XYith such an organization, we can getnbetter athletics, we, can get better school spirit, and many other things. "Many other things" includes a big sale of athletic tickets, a good school band, and better school conduct. If the pep and energy' that is wasted in the stamping of feet, the throwing of notes, and other small- town pranks is organized, it will promote the most and the best school activities in the state of Ohio. The Neglected Youth of Findlay An 'urgent cry is 'disturbing the Findlay atmosphere, calling for industrial promotion, for street im- provement and for any other new project that would better the opportunities for financial gain. But of what avail will these industrial advancements be with no cultivated brain behin'd them? There must be brains to direct the brawn. These urgers of industrial advancement are ignoring the fact that there must be learned citizens to back up their industries when they leave them. Do they wish the youths of their city to hold up their standards or are they intending to import the supporters from other cities that have provided adequate advantages? They certainly would rather hand their industries over to their own chil- ' , dren. Then why do they not provide modern means of training that would be conducive to the proper handling of modern industries? Do the taxpayers of the Findlay of today desire that the present high school building and equipment display the degree of efficiency which they expect of those which it trains for the Findlay of tomorrow? XYould the guide for the stranger in Findlay point to the Central High School building with pride and say "This is our Senior High School?" This building has been erected for twenty years with little if any improvement. Does the manu- facturer treat his business this way? Vertainly not. Then why la given the business. Men sneer at our football and basketball record, but why have we such a record so inferior to Fostoria? Simply because we must be content to grapple with little or no equipment while the loyal supporters of Fostoria provide their students with the equipment necessary equipped and see us shinel not give the youth as fair a chance as for victory. Equip us as Fostoria is Manual Training Department Much effort has been exerted in the past two years-to make ,Manual Training of Findlay equal to that give-n in the best schools. The rooms have been painted, equipment rearranged, new cabinets made Page Forty-two THE BLUE AND GOLD by the department, and new machinery installed. Proper equipment is very essential since Manual Train- ing is no longerian. experiment in school systems. Manual Training is comparatively new in public school work, yet its influence on the development of the brain has certainly made itself manifest. It has passed the stage long ago when it was considered a mere opportunity to learn a trade to make a few needed utilities, a place to absorb the excess activities of the restless or backward pupil. The aim of Manual Training, as of all teachings, is to develop the individual, and quicken the intelligence. Manual Training implies more than acquired skill. It is the quality of mind and the spirit of confidence that it produces, that gives it its place in the school curriculum. The growth in- mental and motor ability, thus brought about by the concrete problems, contributes largely to the making of the resourceful, useful citizens, that are now in such great demand. Manual Training not only gives us a more useful and practical view of domestic life and trades, but also gives us, as citizens, an entirely different intellect-ual fiber, a better habit of observation, precision honesty and self-reliance. VVe are glad that the work in Findlay schools is arranged according to these princip es. The pupils work on in'dividual, concrete projects, in which they have a personal interest. Each pro- ject must be a real problem, each pupil is given a chance to do his best and advance according to his ability. The student makes his own- plan and shop drawings. Thus he gets practice in the constructive designing of the many useful articles, which he builds during his course. The problems consist for the most part of various forms of furniture including the finishing and upholstering. ' ' Tn the mechanical drawing classes-work is given in the fundamentals of drawing, followed by work in diEerent forms oftprojection, sect-toning, intersections, and developments, sketching, working 'drawings, tracmgs and blue printing, as used in technical courses, and practical fields. Mechanical drawing is a universal language by which ideas are graphically expressed, and each pupil in Manual Training is required to take this work. Much credit is due to Mr. Boman for having helped us to attain so high a standard in Manual Train- -THEODORE LANG '22. -MERLE HOSLER '22 ing for the years 1918-1920. The Home Economics Department The Home Economics girls have gone into a broader field of work this year because the women an'd men of science have realized that thisngreat problem of Home Economics is a very difficult and important one. Probably the World War and high cost of living have brought this new vision to them, Why? Why? Why? This small word of three letters is always before us in our Home Economics course. Why do some cooks toughen a tender piece of meat or why are eggs often cooked too much? These are just a few of the questions we Home Economics girls are asking ourselves. The housekeeper of today who has the welfare of her family at heart will not conhne her interest in food just to ,the cooking processes and new recipes, but she will see the importance of what food really is, its composition and how it. nourishes us, how it is manufactured, the cost of food and how to buy, the principals of food preparation, .suitable combinations and amounts of food. Such problems as these We Home Economic girls are learning. From our various experiments in the foods laboratoryave have realized that chemistry goes hand in hand with Home Economics for it clears up such propositions as-What is carbohydrate? What is pro- tein? What are fat, mineral salts, and vitamines? Also yve realize the importance of bacteriology in can- ning fruits and vegetables, in souring milk and vinegar, in bread making and many other ways. We have learned a few simple tests for silk, wool and cotton. A few of us were very much disap- pointed to find that our winter dresses which we made in class were not all wool for the manufacturers had used the warp thread of cotton. When we separated the fibers we found the material had not been woven from new but from made-over wool, a necessity due to the great scarcity of wool in our present age. We have also had a small amount of field experience as a special feature of, our work. We have made three trips. One was to see a carpet loom so the process of weaving materials woul'd stand out clearer in our minds. Another trip was made to the sugar beet factory. f1'here we saw the beet from the first process to the last. The third was a public beef cutting demonstration. The Lincoln and Wash- ington Home Economics girls were present at this demonstration. Then too, we prepared the Thanks- giving dinner party given by Mr. Finton to the entire High School faculty. , Along with our theory we have had a good deal of practice: .Every Monday, Tuesday and NVednes- day the o'dor from the foods .laboratory perfumes the whole building and everyone passing through the halls, sniEs the air as though it were filled with the odor of a rose. Thursday and Friday of every week have been devoted to sewing. We have completed winter and summer dresses. The Home Economic classes owe their success in cooking and sewing to their patient instructor, -MARJORIE SLICK. -MABLE BRYAN. -DOROTHY POWELL. Miss Askain. Public Speaking j This year saw the institution of a new department in F. H. S., one which we believe is destined-to grow in importance and popularity as time goes on. For the past two years the school has had debating teams, which competed with Fostoria an'd Bucyrus in the spring of each year. These naturally' led to the establishment of a regularly authorized department of Public Speaking, with courses for which regular credit is now given. As a result of this new feature, the school is assured of a ready supply of fluent speakers for any and all occasions. No project involving the support of the student body of. la H. S. has failed this year, a fact which is due in great measure to the ability of our speakers to stir the student body to great accomplishments. We believe that this course in Public Speaking marks another important mile-stone in the advance Of F. H. S. to the front rank of modern educational institutions. Page Forty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD Future students of F. H. S. should be encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity here offered them, for the man who can get to lns feet nowadays and address his fellow countrymen in bold, fearless speech undoubtedly has the advantage over those who cannot. Much credit is due to Miss Baker, of the English Department, who willingly gave her time to the guiding-of our young orators and to Mr. Matteson and Mr. Fintoh who have taken great interest in this KICWX' IlCllVliy. -R. B. '20. Sophomore Literary Club For want of a better name we shall call it just plain Sophomore Literary Club temporarily, first, because such a common name is unworthy such a remarkable club, and secondl , because we do not hope lu he ec-phomorcs much longer, but we do hope to perpetuate this institution throughout our high school years. Q - You see our organization is still in its infancyg hence, as Miss Mills so aptly remarks, the lack of an appropriate name, and, also, the lack of publicity. .As to ptivbl-icity,-tliait will soon be forthcoming, for we are expecting great things from this small beginning. 'This soctetyavas not formed merely as a club to peruse tl1e works of other great men and women. We expect to invent some of our own. A brief history of the first meeting may serve as a sample of our work. This was a Poe program and was held with great success. On the night of April the seventh, the members of the club stole softly up the darkened stairs to room four, which, in three short hours had been transformed from a prosaic, common place school room into a room of ghostly delight. The hand- some carved chairs were grouped artistically about, the rloor was spotlessg the electric lights were cov- ere'd with red paper, and these, together with the candles, shed a ghastly light upon the subject, which was Edgar Allen Poe, his life and works. The meeting was conducted by .our handsome and distinguished president, Donald Gassman, who made the numbers more than interesting by an original and clever twist to each announcement and intro- duction. The program comprised the first chapter of our serial story, "X, or the Unknown Quantity," Poe's life, two or three of his stories retold, a pianologue, "The Raven," two original ghost stories that rivalled Conan Doyle's for horror, an'd a parody on Poe's "'1he Bells". It all was blood curdling enough to satisfy the most critical. The programs have revealed great talent in various lines. Two poets, Olive Stevenson and Elsie Roth have been discovered. Olive's merry, rollicking verse vies in charm with the sweet, woodsy poems of lilsie's. jack Betts' rendition uf the Oblong Box was delightful though terrifying, while Edna Caspari's ghost story sent chills up and down the spinal chord of more than one of her auditors. .Xnd not only literary benefits have been derived from the club, Leo Holmes and Dwight DeHaven have acquired great skill in knocking the corners oh' furniture, an'd are fully prepared to run their new transfer line from Findlay to McComb. Enough cannot be said of our president, and our secretary, Emily Gibson, is doing splendid work. The treasurer, Ruth Risser, we feel is well chosen. The treasurer is not so weighty as yet that she must have hcr life insured, but we are sure that, if such were the case, she would be equal to the occasion. Gladys Needles is our publicity manager, and has done her work nobl . Mabel George, the vice-president, has had ne cause to function as yet. This completes our list of oliicers. Our literary club has been a wonderful success, an'd though most credit is due Miss Beardsley, the en'husiasm of the members was a great factor in the formation of it. Though only two meetings have tawen place, such interest has been shown, and we have all enjoyed ourselves so much that we are sure the club will endure long after we, the founders, are gone. -ONE OF 'EM.

The rude shepherd returning crook in hand to the tiny village of Moluca was met at the Gate by a crowd of chattering worthies, -eadh talking loudliy of the great news. Everyoiie was hound thlit he tell the newcomer the wonderful tidings, and the poor shepherd, usually a solitary creature enough, was the center of attraction 'for once. His dark face immediately brightened. The country folk counted it a gala day wlufn one so wise, so gracious, so kind, so generous, so rich, so noble as Orgetorix passed through t ieir vi lage. Meanwhile great preparations were going. on in Molucla. A council of the chief men of the village had been called to make plans for the entertainment of their royal guest. While these worthy gentlemen are cu'dgelmg their honorable wits, let me relieve this terrible strain, and tell my gentle readers who this hero was: Orgetorix was the possessor of the longest, noblest, most magniticent pedigree in all Helvetia. He sat in the shade of his family tree, and calmly appropriated all the praise, splendor and titles of which the various branches of it had ever been guilty. If you will allow the expression, he was a regular shark on titles, and, having the necessary ambition and enough filthy lucre, he had acquired quite a collection of them and, incidentally, ran the government of Helvetia. Urgetorix was a great favorite with the peoplf, and was noted for the banquets and various entertainments with which he delighted the masses. n short, he believed in advertising. The day of festivities 'dawned at last. Moluca, attired in its best bib-and-tucker, marched to the town gate. The prettiest girls in russet gowns, snowy cap and kerchief, were stationed at the sides of the road with garlands of flowers. A triumphal arch had been erected, under which the hero was to pass. Scores of ragged, dirty boys climbed the fences, shouted, an'd made nuisances of themselves. The stand- ards of nation and village tluttered in the breeze. The crowd shuffled and shouted, and each stepped on his neighbor's feet by way of amusement. Thje sun mounted, however, higher and higher and the crowd waited. It grew hotter and hotter. The croud dispersed to till the aching void, at noon, and then went hack and waited again. lt was getting to be a joke-this grand procession. The people were becoming disgusted, when in the distance was heard the toot of a million horns. Instantly the crowd revived. lt sttiod on its tip-toes to a man. There was a breathless pause: then around the bend in the road appeared a uge pageant of gaudy color an'd gay music. The crowd gave a long sigh, in 'which.rehef, awe, and weariness were mingled: then the golden chord of silence was broken. Pandemonium reigned. Orgetorix's train was a motley procession, which consisted of guards- on proudly stepping horses, whose shining weapons gleamed in the sun, heralds in green -livery, with gilded trumpets. In the midst of it all, on a milk white-steed with gold and silver trappings, ro'de the hon of the dayvflrgetorix. Orgetorix, nodding and smiling this way and that, at the open-mouthed country folkgcii short, chubby, round-eyed Smirking personage, who threw copper Coins among the aforesaid urchins. rgetorlx lost no opportunity to make an impression on the susceptible rustics. Behind him, in a sedan chair borne by four stiff, scarlet-liveried creatures, rode Narcissa, Orgetoriys beautiful daughter. Her appearance in the parade was a matter ot great interest and speculation among the townstolk. The banquet was served in the council chambers to Orgetorix, his retinue, and the noblest and wealth- iest citizens of Moluca. The commoner people made merry in the market place. During the evening Orgetorix gave his reasons for the journey thither. It seerned that he was on his way to visit the Haeduans and Seuuanians. Together with these states the Helvetians were to embark on the high seas of adventure. The Helvetian chiefs had decided that Helvetia was too small, too unfruitful for such a mighty tribe. They were looking for new worlds to conquer tof which Urgetorix meant to be princel. As a result preparations must be commenced at once for the 'departure from Helvetia. In two years they would set out. The next day Orgetorix and his daughter resumed their journey. The Sequanians agreed to the plan, after quite a little coaxing. The Haeduans received them hospitably. Diviciacus, the chief, agreed to the plan and everything was promising for Orgetorix. The real purpose for his visit, however, is yet to he disclosed. After much maneuvering, Dumnoux, the brother of the chief, and Orgetorix managed a secret conference. - Alone, all stiff formalities were discarded. Dumnorixuand Orgetorix were "two souls with but a single thought" an'd that thought "power", The conversation was somewhat as follows: "As friend Dumnorix had already heard, Orgetorix had persuaded the state, after qu-ite a little oratory, to abandon the narrow strip of land they called their own, and to go out into the wide, wide worl'd to seek their fortune.

Now that it was accomplished, they would soon he able to subjugate entire Gaul. Now Orgetorix meant to have a' hand in the work. NYhen the most of Gaul was under their control, the Helvetian chieftain could be quieitly put out of the way. The same thing might befall Diviacus, don't you know, an'd then who but Dumnorix the Great would become chief of the Headuans? VVould Dumnorix join him in these plans, and become the sharer of the spoils? Friend Dumnorix evidently would. To clinch the bargain Orgetorix would transfer his daughter in marriage to Dumnorix. Then Dumnorix demanded to know if tl1e lucky lady was Narcissa. the gentle, the beautiful? Orgetorix having given him the necessary assurance, Dumnorix sprang up and holding out his hand, cried, "Put it there, old boyl" or wor'ds to that etiiect. The next day Dumnorix made a written copy of their agreement, and set it by messenger to Orgetorix. The messenger was a merry fellow, who loved a song, a dance. and a pretty maid as well as the next one. So it isn't strange that he lost the precious epistle while climbing a nut-tree for the benefit of a blushing baker's daughter: nor is it strange that one of the numerous spies, lurking about the camp, should pick it up. I Thus it happened that Orgetorix found a warm welcome awaiting him when he returned home-a hot one in act. The council had. in some mysterioius manner received a small packet 'dropped hy a careless mes- senger on Haeduan soil, and. having put two and two together, made it five. Q As Orgetorix and his train wound their way up the old familiar streets once more, they were astons ished at the manner in which they were received. The nobles only gazed at them coldly. Children booted. At one comer they were almost mobhed. Always a band of soldiers followed them. Even the beggars, former staunch a'dvocates of Orgetorix and his goodness, reviled their patron. A terrible fear clutched at the coward's heart. Was his secret out at last? Impossible! Who was there to betray him? Nevertheless the old rascal shook in his boots. The instant he reached his dwelling place he received a summons to court. Here the charge was brought against him. Orgetorix was given tive days in which to gather together his slaves and depend- ents. His penalty was death at the stake. All seemed against him. His friends shunned him. Always a guard was at his elbow. The very ldogs in the street shrunk away at his anproach. As the days went by, Orgetorix's terror increased. He tried to bribe the governors with fabulous sums. His gol'd was now wortthless-worse than useless. Always a terrible fear clutched at his heart. It was as if a sword, suspended by a hair hung over him. Always he seemed to feel the flames about his limbs. His days were horrible. On the dav of the trial. all his clients were assembled. His slaves alone mounted into the thousands: he tried to feel contident of slipping away in the confusion. The entire city was congregated to witness the demise of their old 'demi-god, Orgetorix. The trial was to be held in the market place. 0rgetorix's people were on one side. his enemies on the other. Tn the center, visible to all. the criminal was to be placed. At the farther end a stake was implanted in the ground around the foot of which were heaped fagots. There was great confusion. lVhen all was ready the heralds blew a shrill blast on their trumpets. The jury took its seat im- pressively. All bf-came silent. The iudge reouired the prisoner to step forward: but no prisoner an- r-eared. for the simple reason that there was no prisoner to step. The bird had flown: Orgetorix ha'd escancd. There was great agitation among the hy-standers. A search was started instantly. Bodies of armed men scoured the city and immediate vicinity for traces of the prisoner. After hours of weary search. a body of soldiers stumbled on a dark object in a .small lane leading toward Geneva. lt proved to be Orgetorix-a knife in his heart. 'Traces of fear still lingered on his ghastlv countenance. Thus en'ded the career of the missrable traitor-Orgetorix!-the people's god- with feet of clay. Though the prime mover of the departure from Helvetia was no more, the governors thought the plan such a good one. that it would be well to carry it out. During the two vears set aside for the preparationss. the Helvetians worked to the very limit. 'Every available inch was given over to the olanting of grain, The wheelswrights and wagoners. the blacksmiths and farmers worked night and day. There was talk of little else than the approaching exodus. Finally the last grain of wheat was ground into Flour. The last leather thong was fastened to the last shield. the last cart was finished to perfection. Only a short, dreary winter remained before spring time and the journey. The Helvetian govr-rnors improved the winter months by making an alliance with Rauraci, the Tulingi, the lfatobrigi and the Boii, neilzhbofinl !fll1CS. At last thc frozen fields began to thaw: the song of the' blue bird was once more beard: Old Sol showed his roun'd. rcri face for a longer period each day. Slim, green shoots sprang from out the dark earth. Spring had indeed come! Hut it held no iov for the Helvetians that year. Over each of the four hundred tiny villages, basking in the pleasant sunshine, brookcd a spirit of sorrow. Ord:-ra had come from headouartcrs that they must hnrn the homes which had sheltered them so long, and assemble on the banks of the Rhone by the Kalends of April. On the specified day all the people gathered outside the gate in a long procession-the women an'd children in carts, thc chiefs and nobles on horseback, the remainder on foot. YVhcn the fire was kindled, loud were thc groans and wailinszs and pessimistic prophecies. As the flames mounted bighcr and higher. thc gricf of thc ncoole seemed to break all bounds, and tbelmlghty procession mmerl it: back nn thc sorry sight, and left their long loved home to the fire which was rapidly consuming it. Tn the meanwhile, the government was having no little didiculty. lt seemed as if there were only two roads hy which they could leave Hclvctia-one was wide and light and could be traversed easilv: thc other was narrow, dark and ditiicult and easily defended. Naturally they chose the former, hut Caesar who-I: 'difi'erenlly.

Pl gg Forty-li x THE BLUE AND GOLD Caesarlhad already made up his mind when the two rich noblemen, representatives of Helvetia made a call on him one fine afternoon. Hid'den away in the inmost recesses of Caesar's mind was the niemory of a former war between Romans and Helvetians, in which the Roman general Cassius was disastrousl defeated. Also, the Helvetians were noted for being in the vernacular of the st t "h Y d b 'I " ' - fee .

Crosse e One' As there was no hope from this quarter, the Helvetians must either take the more laborious route or stay at home They chose the lesser of the two evils, and laid plans for the more severe journey. l Not relying on their own powers of persuasion. the Helvetians requested Dumnorix to gain permission for them from the Sequanians to make a iourney through their territory. ' As Dumnorix- usually looked out for No. 1: he grasped at this ooportunity with little hesitation. He had friendly relations with both tribes in ouestion. His wife was a Helvetian, vou remember, and being still under the charm of the honeymoon, he was anxious to please her Also, Dumnorix looked aliead to the time when he should rule Gaul, and he wished the Qequanians and'Helvetians to be under obli atio to him.

Through fields of young grain, through stately forests, through the towns swept the great tidal wave of Helvetians, leaving utter ruination behind them. ' Caesar had kept spies labout. and these informed him of the Helvetians' movements, As they moved nearer and nearer the province, Caesar decided that the time was fine for get-ion, The Seouanians and Headuans were quite ready for someone's help. They sent delegates to Caesar, requiring aid: and so he gathered together his forces. The enemy had progressed to the Soane, a wide sluggish river in Seouanian territory. They had worked for davs building a bridge 'lf rafts :md skiffs. It had taken a long time and much labor. but finally it was finished and three-fourths of the Helvetin troops crossed to pitch camp on the opposite shore. The remainder was to follow the next day. Early in the morning Caesar an'd his men crept stealthily unon them. cutting the hand to pieces. fCaesar not only 'avenged his countrv in this battle. for a very close relative, his father-in-law's grand- father had been killed by this same division long agoj The next day the Romans built a bridge and were soon on the other bank The Helvetians were surprised at this ouick advent. Thev sent ambassadors to Caesar, who offered them terms of peace which they very haughtily refused. The war had begun! A dav or so later. the Helvetians broke camp. So did Caesar. and proceeded to follow them at a respectable distance. The Helvetians' rear gum-rl and Caesar's men had a bout or two, out of which the Helvetians came victorious. Tmmediatelv they were badly afflicted with enlargement of the head, and couldn't resist tormenting the Roman soldiers. But Caesar held his peace, and forced his solldiers to hold theirs. It was all he could do at the time to keep the Helvetians from purloining everything in sight. In such a manner, they wormed their way along, with scarcely six miles between the two armies. Tn the meantime Caesar was having further trouble. At a certain time each month. he distributed parcels of grain to the soldiers, We was at this time frumentarilv embarassed, and the Hae- duans. at his renuest, promised him grain Now 3 f-ei-so-n would naturally think that the Haeduans, for whose benefit, largely, the soldiers were there, would be only too glad to furnish them with food. 'But they were not. You see, Dumnorix had been busv again. spreading propagan'da. injurious to the Romans. He had always disliked the Romans and the dislike was mutual. Fo Dumnorix told the credulous Haeduans that if Caesar would subiugate the Helvetians. he would keen right on and soon the Haeduans would be under Roman imperial power. As a result, the Haeduans were unwilling to supply the Roman general with anyt ing. ' Caesar summoned a council, and the plot was brought to light. Dumnorix was foun'd guilty of treason and other slight crimes. Caesar woulld have cut an end to Dumnorix and his plans at once. except for the entreaties of his brother. Diviciacus. with whom Caesar was ouite friendly. But be had spies at Dumnorix's heels constantly. to avoid a further nredicament of the kind. The Helvetians had plodded on, during the skirmish with the Romans. and were now encamped at the foot of a hill, eight miles from Caesar's camo. Caesar hear'd of this, and sent a man, supposed to be nuite competent. ahead with the scouts. l abienus. an old officer. was to take troops to the top of'the mountain and Caesar was to come loter. The idea was for the three generals to attack the Helvetians from different directions, simultaneously. When the first streaks of light were reddening the eastern sky, Caesar on one side and Considius on the other. were creeping slowly toward the Helvetian camp. Labienus held the top, and awaited the signal for the charge. lust at thc critical moment. Considius made a mistake, because of which Caesar's nlan was frustrated. Mistaking the Romans' insignias as those of the Gauls, he at once sent a messenger to Caeser announcing that Labienus was being overcome by the Canis. This rumor SPfe3'd fl1l'0Ugl'I the Roman ranks and the soldiers becoming panic-stricken, turned and fled as one man. The next day Caesar was forced to turn aside to Bibracte for grain. The tables were turned, at least the Helvetians thought so, and thinking this act the result of fear, became the. pursuers and the Romans, the pursued. Here they made their fatal mistake. for as long as the 'Helvetians kept ahead .of Caesar he was unable to attack them owing to the rugged nature of the land. Their safety lay in avoid- ing battle, burdened and impeded as they were. But follow him they did and overtook him soon. Caesar halted and prepared for battle. To avoid Page Forty-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD a retreat like the last one, he took away all the horses. Next, a triple line of battle was formed on the middle of the hill, and then soldiers placed at intervals all over the hills. 'The Gauls were not well informed on the modern means of warfare, and merely piled the luggage tip in one place an'd formed a solid phalanx which could easily be destroyed. A little while and the battle was commenced. Both sides fought fast and furiously. Javelins rained about them. Rearing horses, falling soldiers, the noise of on-rushing cavalry, the cries of the wounded, curses and prayers. were all mixed in one great terrifying thunder. The liauls at tirst fought with leathern body guards and shields, but the Romans' javeline fastened them together, and ruine'd them completely. T-hrusting their shields aside, with the mighty battle cry, the valiant Gauls rushed into the thick of the hght unprotected. The Helvetians were in a sad plight. The hot June sun increased their suffering. Though they held on with a bull dog grip, slowly hut surely, inch by inch the brave Gallic soldiers were being pushed hack. Back, back, hack, until they were forced to take refuge behind the carts and wagons.. But still the Romans pushed forward, and still the wounded fell, and still the terrible carnage was carried on. At last the horrible slaughter ceased, But, alas, the Helvetians would have wished it to go on until each and every one had met a soldiers' death. The once powerful and mighty race, dishonored and ashamed, was forced to return to the 'destitute lands of their fathers. Of the 263,000 brave, haughty men who had marched so valiantly away from their prosperous valley, only 110,000 remained. The plan had failed. The weary, ragged remnant of battle scarred warriors returned, in sltatne, to the tiny valley of Helvetia. --MABEL GEORGE, Latin Department. lvlotheris ay Oft within our little cottage, As the shadows gently fall, XVhile the sunlight touches softly One sweet face upon the wall, Do we gather close together And in hushed and ten'der tones, Ask each other's full forgiveness For the wrong that each has done: Should you wonder at this custom At the ending of the day Eye and voice would Quickly answer, "lt was once our mother's way."

Hilltfiwn lay plaridly in a little valley, bathed in thelwarm sunlight, along the edge of one of the ynrysl quiet little rivers that you ever saw. lt was there in that quiet, rnodest little Billtown, over the back-yard fence- that Mary Ann hearrl of "Amos Jones' oldest daughters a-runnin off and avmarrytn that grind fer nuthin' joe Smith," and that Sally Smithers told Kate Rawlins that them there Perkmses, Page Forty-eight THE BLUE AND GOLD so Sally ,Tones ha'd said, was a-goin' to have the preacher fer dinner this Sunday a week and from all reports that they didn't have a white table cloth to their name, not even a red one either. Now ain't that awfull So it was when Clark Small bought his new Ford. Now, I guess Clark Small had a right to buy an automobile, and even a Ford at that, if anybody in Billtown did because it was counseled over and argued out at the corner grocery and post office combined, that he had more money than any of the rest anyway for his father before him, Squire Small, one of Billtown's pioneers, left him everything he had. And if that doesn't remind me of the poor old Hezekiah Sykes, who was quite well to do also. When a little grand-nephew of his was born, the parents being poor, he had said, "Now to prolong that name of Hezekiah Sykes and to further distinguish the name, just call the little one Hezekiah Emanuel Sykes an'd I'll remember him well when I make my will." So the little fellow was christened Hezekiah Emanuel Sykes with due ceremony but "Uncle Sykes" died not long after quite suddenly without even making his last testament, leaving the burden of poverty on the poor child with Hezekiah Emanuel Sykes piled on top of that yet. "I'm not gonna' worry," was all that he had to say in after years when he had come to live with Aunt Sairy Baird and had also come in possession of the dog Rags by name and Rags in appearance. Now it so happened that Heck Sykes, as .he was callled by'his fellow comrades, not only because his name suggested it, but because at a perplexing or highly exciting moment, "By Heck" was his usual phrase, had not kept on the best terms with the Hon. Clark Small, wealthiest man in Billtown, by more than one Hallowe'en escapade and many another daring adventure. The very horror and rage of that man's rage of that man's soul was the sight of that grinning face peeping out from under a broad brimmed straw hat with fringed edge, the pink blouse with white polka dots and the faded blue overalls, the pant legs of which were of the three-quarters length design and last but not least the two big, brown bare feet, for those feet generally guided nearly two dozen similar feet on similar expe'ditions. The sight of Heck edging his way through some hedge fence or climbing right over the top of some wire one, without respect to the matter of fence posts or wending his way down to the river followed by the little crowd, put the big Mr. Small in many a frightful afternoon of suspense. Vl'hy? "Got a whole lot o' green apples over in Smalley's orchard. Saw 'em when I come by. Pretty big 'uns too, some of 'em. Kind a' temptin'," announced Young See-Saw Thompson on one afternoon when affairs seemed to be going rather slowly. "By Heck, I've got it. C'mon. Get your sticks. VVe'll see how many cows we c'n hit with 'em." So off they were and soon a whole valley of green bullets was let loose on poor bossy grazing peace- fully over in the clover Field. "Onc't we got pitched out fer doin' this. What d'ye say we get some sheets and have something with some real life. This ain't so much fun as that." "Here, you an' me'll put these over us. Zeke. an'd git down in the rail fence corner and the rest of you bring the cows and calves up into the corner and when they git up here, why Zeke an' me'll show you some real-for-sure westem life," commanded the notorious Heck. Up the cattle came, up into the corner-and hot, the poor animals had done nothing but fight Hies and hunt for shade the whole day long, but the rogues were driving them up, up into that Corner and when they were wondering where they could go next, two ghastly white figures plunged out at them and sent the poor beasts wildly off in every direction, with only the giggles of the little scoundrels an'd "c'mon that's fun. Let's do it agin'.". And back the panting animals were driven again and again. until the Hon. Mr, Small suddenly perceiving two ghostly forms repeatedly rising from the corner of his rail fence. quite suddenly and unexpectedly put an end to this "c'mon, let's do it agin'." Poor Aunt Sairy got her share also with the rest. Bake day came but once a week and once too often she lineld her fat pies up in the east window to the mercy of "Heck and Company," and one after' noon while Aunt Sairy went to the Missionary meeting, Heck caged her old red rooster, the pride of her Bock, in a strawberry crate and placed it on the little wagon and started over the place to advertise the cock that could whip any cock in Billtown. Arriving at the church lawn just as the ladies had spread the snow-white cloth on the grass for lunch, he decided to make his trip short, but Rags did make it the least bit shorter. Seeing his master, in boundless joy, he gave one leap over the cage an'd knocking it off the wagon, let the captive free, flapping its wings and going at a swift rate of speed over the church lawn and across an unguarded portion of the tablecloth. "Ol' Spurs," Aunt Sairy screamed and raising on her knees, clapped her hands over her ears in fright, for the poor woman was subject to frequent attacks of nervousness. The other ladies were shocked to the n'th degree also as they smoothed down their starched aprons. "The other day," said Zeke, coming up close to Heck and Seesaw, a little bit closer to Zeke yet, "Why. Iane Stears sai'd the root of all evil was in boys. Yet she did. Yes an' she said. 'Now there's a bright sample for you, that young 'un that Sairy Baird is a pretendin' to ra1se,' yes, sir, I heard her with my own ears." "She did," slowly said Heck, his mouth slowly dropping a couple inches. Not two minutes later the three were headed toward the river with Fish noles and a spade. Was it any wonder that that very eve when the Miss lane Stears slid down between the cool sheets of her bed suddenly her feet touched something cold, slimy and her shrieks of "Helo!" .woke up the whole populace of Rilltnwn and immediately brought them all but three to the scene of action. Not long after she felt justified in every single statement that she had ever made concerning Heck and his "crowd" Poor Heck's future was foretold, retold and wrell outlined not less than once a week at the corner store as the heads nodded, the little bunches of whiskers went up an'd down, some fast, some slow- "I'll tell you, Sairy Bairds gonna' have a time yet. That young 'un ain't gonna' amount to a mite more'n his father. Go the same way. Little tridin good fer nuthin'." But the summer days soon passed and then autumn came with its chilling winds and then winter with its snow and ice. Late one afternoon as the sun was sinking behind a dark bank of clouds, the darkness coming fast and the wind beginning to blow quite chilly, a few of the skaters separated themselves from the others an'd were at quite a distance up the river when some one yelled, "Don't go up there. Ice's thin. Liable to break through." They took the warning evidently but all had not heard. "'GucfsskI'll make it fer home," said Heck to himself finally, seeing that almost all had left and it was getting ar . n I Then suddenly a cry-now again a shriek and all was still. In an instant, Heck was gliding in the direction of the dangerous ice and there he saw little Davey Small struggling helplessly and frantically in the cold water. Heck stretched out over the surface of the ice and caught the child by the collar an'd jerked him to safety. But the twofold weight was too much and, crack! Heck went through. The water Page Forty-nine THE BLUE AND GOLD was hitter cold, the ice would not hold and try though he would, he could not escape. He sank, he rose, no one heard, oh, .could not some one come, woulcln't some one come, wouldn't somebody do something- down he sang again and that was all he ever knew. The little child too frightened to realize much else than that he was safe, ran quickly home. After hearing his story, the father wasvery, very thankful in his heart and just the least bit ashamed as he knocked at Sairy Baird's door a little later. "No, he ain't come home yit, ought to he here most any time, though. Been down there a skatin' all afternoon." Aunt Sairy met him at the door. He turned. Something was wrong and he must see. The path to the river had never seemed so long and his heart u-as fairly pounding. Yes, he did see, an hour afterwards too. As he stood looking tiown on the ghastly, 'white uptumed face, just boyish features, blasted, blasted in the beginning and all for him. a lsudlden tear seized him, his blood seemed frozen in his body and great tears rolled down the man's c ee's. -EVALYN BYAL '2O. Altruism, the Need of the Americans of Today The period of military strife which has involved nearly every nation of the world has been a great test of the spirit of brotherly kindness, the feeling of co-operation whicli should be inherent in each and every one of us. A nation not founded on the spirit of brotherly love and kindness cannot survive. The people of Germany for many years were taught the vital necessity of standing firmly behind their ruler. It was because oi this unity of thought and action that they were able to make such advancement before being halted: hut, due to the fact that her people were utterly unconscious of the principles of true co- operation and the spirit of altruism, her desire for world supmiacy was not realizeld. "Autocrats believe in govemment of autocrats, by autocrats, for autocrats. Socialists believe in government of the prole- tariat. bv the proletariat, for the proletariat. But Americans believe in government of the people, by the people. for the people: and by this we mean government of all the people, bv all the people, for all the people." It was only by the loyal co-operation of everyone at home that our boys in France were able to make such telling strides. Everyone. during the war, gladly co-operated in everv way that the Allies might attain the goal of victory but. alas, with the cessation of hostilities the smoldering coal of social unrest has burst forth into a flame with evervone grasping for all he can acquire for himself without regard for his fellow-man. Is there not as much need for no-operation now as there was during the war? The problem of the labor and capital situation is one of such vital interest that it cannot be ignored. It has become so serious that it is affecting the liberty, the hanniness, and even the life of the public. It's settlement demands the conscience. the courage, and the intelligence of men as well as the government which they uphold. Let a souare 'deal illuminate the way: a souare deal that gives a thought to all the people and the common R'00d- SS Well HS to those who dwell in class consciousness YVe must avoid separating ourselves into groups. We must co-operate as we did during the war. For. if a government does not guarantee an equal opportunity to all. if men cease to respect the rights of other men. then this govemment fails. If a nation does not give iustice and eoual rights to all. there is no liberty. The American people are confronted by one of the greatest problems which has ever presented itself to the nublic: that of compelling organized groups of in'dividuals, whether they represent capital and labor, production and distribution. or whether they are rivals in the same fiel'd. to settle their difficulties oeace- ahlv. XVe have conouered German autocracy on the battlefield but German socialism conspires in our midst. This is not a simple nor an easv problem: few vital problems are simple or easy, Present de- man'ds for labor increases supported as thev are by brute force, cannot he tolerated. They are an iniury to both contending parties as well as to the public. l'.et us rely uoon the nrincioles of Americanism. Let us anply these principles to our problems with constantly increasing confidence for "our difficulties Zfow not out of our national principles but from our de'-arture from them." ln the immediate past the rights of the public have been seriously endangered by the railroa'd switch- men in their greed for nersonal gain They have hindered the transportation of public necessities: they have hampered nul-lic interest: ther have brought industry to a standstill. Due to the lack of a proner feeling between capital and labor, there is a shortage of raw material for industries and even food for tbr- public. This strike has even gone so far that lahorers are losing faith and confidence in each other. labor and capital are at swords' noints and will not ioin han'ds to promote their nv.-n bf-at inte'-gets, HE plpafl fm- ,n awakening nt' all parties concerned to a realization of all that is noble and good in mankind, VVe must overcome evil with good. defeat error with truth. and drive out darlaneis if-1v bringing in the light. if this is not done, we are fearful of our future.

The bur'-'len of our plea is to get vou to see the spirit of brotherlv love so beautifully given to us bv the "lowly Nazarene," who was concerned onlv with making conditions better and life happier for all those with whom he came in contact.

As Horace Greeley once said, "Young man, go west!" we now say, "Young man, join the Army!" W'hy? It is the big Opportunity of the age. Are you physically Weak? "Health is the first wealth," and the Army is a health-buillder. It provides wholesome food, clean, comfortable surroundings, proper clothing, and medical attention when necessary. Physical ex- ercise is compulsory and every encouragement is given athletics. These with outdoor life make men straight, strong and healthy. Do you seek an education? You can attend school at any Army Post and study grammar and high school subjects. Vilould you learn a trade? The government has recently appropriated two million dollars for the establishment and main- tenance of vocational schools where you can learn to be a mechanic, auto repairman, electrician, telegraph operator, chemist, or almost anything These courses prepare you for a return to civil life or continued service in the Army. Do you long for travel and adventure? . You can be an engineer at the else you wish. Join the Army. Panama Canal, a wireless operator in the Philip- pines, a lineman in Alaska, or an aviator dying lVhenever possible, the govern- in the clou'ds. ment gives you a choice of station. In the Army you can travel, leam and earn at the same time. You may think the Army pay low. In addition to the 530.00 a month, Uncle Sam pays for your food. clothing. rent, light and fuel. W'ith the present high cost of living, why not leave all the worries to Cncle Sam? After thirty years service, you can retire on three- fourths pay plus 515.75 a month. The Army is not all work and drilling. There are movies, libraries, games, music and dances: furloughs whenever conditions permit. Do you admire courage, honesty, square-dealing, resolution, and tenacity of purpose? You will Find these qualities in men like XVashington, Grant, Sherman, Roosevelt. and Pershing-men developed in the Army. This training of body, mind, anld soul and these opportunities for education, travel and adventure are more than sufficient reasons for joining the Armyg but there is another and greater motive for donning the "olive drab". Do you Love your country and would you be worthy of her? You must be willing to serve her both in YVar and Peace. Have you-like Nathan Haleone life to give for your country? If so, join the Army! Enlistment in the united States Arrny?,, By Jackson Betts CAge 1-0- Sophomore Class, F. H. S. UI-Iats off, the flag is passing by," and with it is the ruffle of drums and the tramp of many feet. The spectators are thrilled with pride as the boys in khaki swing by to the tune of "The Star Spangled Banner," led by Old Glory. an'd ever after they are gone, thoughts of the brave young soldiers' hardships linger in their minds. But hardships come in war times. The soldier of the peace-time army has many advantages, one of which is an education. If he quit grammar school or high school he can start his education in the army where be left oE in private life. He may even begin as low as the first grade. Sometimes a youth enlists who has just corn- pleted an education. If so, the army provides that he may study a vocation instead of an educa- tion. Those who are mechanically inclined may enter the Air Service or llfotor Transport, or for those who inten'd to study medicine, will End instruction in the Medical Corps. From a comparison with the boys before they went to war, to their appearance on returning, we End that the physical training excels every- thing else that is gained from the Army training. The physical instructors develop Weak men, used to indoor work, into stout, robust, healthy sol- diers, tit for any kind of work in any kind of weather. The army offers a field of work suitable to the disposition of the soldier. Those who wish straight military training usually enlist in the in- fantry: to those who love the gfeat out-of-doors and plenty of excitement, the cavalry contains all of these, if the prospective soldier is of daring nature and has real nerve, he will End excitement along his line in the Aviation or Tank Corps, but if he cannot stand excitement or heavy work, he may serve his country in the Quartermaster Department 'doing clerical work. As to travel he may go to very near any part of the world he choosesg that is, he may serve in frozen Alaska, sweltering Hawaii, Panama, or the Philippines, China, or the Rhine Provincm. Surely three years of training along any line of work, with any part of the world to choose as a training place, along with discipline, the essen- tial or perfect manhood, ought to prove advan- tageous to any young man.

After looking about I discovered it was a pall and pencil. lYhy had that hoy dropped me in this dark pocket when he honght me? At last a welcome ray of light shot in. I looked out anld saw a roomful of lvoys and girls. Then someone nearhy said: "This is certainly fine In he entertained hy the ".Iustarnere t'luh". Va: dehaters from Bucyrus are interested in it." Deep in my own mind I wondered, 'AXYhat is the .Iustainere t'luh"? Then I heard someone asking the same question, "XYhen was the cluh organized and what is its purpose"? "Oh! it's 'just a mere cluh' organized from the puhlit' speaking classes. It's activities are many. XYe have quite a record for this year. The rluh really was started last year just two months before school closed." I felt there was a story here so I made use nf that pad an'd pencil which hail hurt me so cruelly. "IVe were organized late in Xoventher and in the early part uf Iiecemhcr we had a dinner party at the home of Leon Hertz." The other lxroke in, "A formal dinner party so soon after organizing?"

If I could talk like some Iustamereite I'd start in at eight and expound the whole night. I'd settle the problems that bother mankind, And x-ray the troubles with the light of my mind. I'd start on the school board and in one-half an hour VVith reason and logic and forensic power Show why a new high school is needed arfd then Pause at a climax while they shouted, Amen! This picture show business with its anguish and woe And the greed it engenders for seventh day dough, I'd settle like this-quite simple indeed- Invite all the managers to a Saturday feedg Talk them somnific, in a Fintonized way, Put them all sound asleep for a night and a day: Then when I'd settled all problems of life, Forever live happy, with a just-a-mere wife.

This year we have one of the best and most successful orchestras ever organized in the history of old F. H. S. ltis a well-balanced typical school orchestra which is always ready to furnish splendid, high class 1llL1:lC for every occasion, A great deal of credit is due to Prof, R. ll, Richards, our eminent director, for the excellent manner in which he has organized and instructed the orchestra. NVe, the members of the orchestra, wish to take this opportunity to express our deep apprecia- tion of Mr. Richards untiring help and interest in our progress. He has obtained for us the best of classical music and although some of it is quite difficult we have suc- ceeded in mastering it. On the Sth of January we had a party instead of our regular practice which is held every Wlednesday evening. XYe gathered at the home of Miss Nellie .Xinsler and enjoyed a delightful social evening. A great many guests were invited and they were entertained to the best of our ability. Mr. Finton has kindly consented to give each member of the orchestra an extra half credit for his work. This plan has never been tried before and we certainly con- sider ourselves fortunate in receiving such a favor. This year the orchestra has played for all the school activities such as the rhetor- icals. debates, class plays and even the opera "lXfIikado," a thing which before the last two years has never been attempted by any former High School orchestra. Findlay High should be proud of the fact that it has an orchestra that can really play and one that is always "on the job."

The participants were the students of the musical course. The plot of the opera revolves around the wandering minstrel, Nanl-:i-Pooh, who declares his love for Yum-Yum. Pish-Tush, a pompous character, discourages Nanki-Pooh by relating the release of Ko-Ko. Pooh-Bah announces that news concerning Yum-Yum would come under "State Secrets," which could be obtained for a small "insult." "The Big Black Block" sung by this trio was one of the big hits of the show. Ko-Ko, represented by the High School comedian, kept the audience in an uproar throughout the evening. The three little maids, Yum-Yum, Pitti-Sing an'd Peep-Bo, sang their lines with much grace. Katishlia, an elderly lady of the court, married Ko-Ko, after receiving the news that Xanki-Pooh, the disguinished son of the Mikado, had been beheaded, in accordance with the orders of His Majesty. However, it was foun'd out later that the report of the execution was false and Nanki-Pooh and Yum-Yum, whom he had married, were joyfully received into his father's court. The Mikado, wearing a gorgeous robe, bore himself with great 'dignity. Vaughn De Reed, as the attendant, strove to carry the japanese umbrella over the royal head? The orchestra aided most effectively. Miss Lora Moore, accompanist, with her sympathetic support, gained the admiration of the audience. Albert Boss and Nellie Amsler took the orchestra leadership while Prof. Richards was elsewhere. R. H. Richards, supervisor of music, was rewarded in his untiring efforts, by the intense delight with which the audience greeted each number. Caro Guy Miller is to be commended upon his excellent work. He loaned his scenery, principals' costumes and the wigs for the occasion besi'des giving his time to train the amateur actors and actresses.

This was followed by the presentation of several selected scenes from Shakespeare's plays. The Morning Republican says concerning the event, "The First rhetoricals for the season were given by the Senior glass at the high school auditorium Wednesday afternoon, and were well received by the large audience." Allan Kestle was particularly goo'd in his interpretation of Julius Caesar in the moh scene in Shake- speare's classic. Evelyn Byal, as Portia, and Leo Cunningham, as Shylock, in the court scene from "The Merchant of Venice," received a large share of the applause, and Tom Duncan, as Cohbo, in the same play, in the street scene, acted the part well. The VVitches' scene from "Macbeth" was particularly realistic. Concerning the rest of the cast nothing more could he said than that it was a typical Senior cast, an'd the writer, though a Junior, admits that the Senior class certainly possesses its full share of excepf tional dramatic talent. Miss Baker and Miss Hill worked hard to make this program the success that it was, and deserve much of the credit. The Senior spring rhetoricals were dispensed with, owing to the series of inter-class debates. unior Rhetoricals The last week of school before Christmas rolled around, and the students of F. H. S. were becom- ing fidgety in class as their thoughts lightly turned to Santa Claus, and to a reckoning of just how much their stockings would hold. That is, all were enjoying this happy expectancy but a small group of Juniors, who hald the task of entertaining the rest of the school on the afternoon of the last day. This was to be their First appearance as actors and actresses, and they were anxious to make a success. After two selections by the High School Orchestra, which has contributed its services untiringly for the support of the school entertainments this year, the audience was submitted for Five minutes to the "agonies" of being addressed by the class president, James Bope, and then its wounds were healed again by Nellie Amsler, who played a violin solo. When she had finished, the curtain went up on "Spreading the News," an Irish comedy in one act. This little play by Lady Gregory shows very effectively how a piece of even the most ordinary news may he passed from mouth to mouth, ever growing and expanding until at last it in no way resembles tl1e original. The mere fact that one of the visitors at an Trish country fair goes away without his pitch-fork, which he has forgotten, and that another man volunteers to take it to him, is expanded by gossip into a wild tale of murder, and many complications ensue, which are Finally cleared up by the appearance of both the supposed "deceased" and the "murderer," each in the best of spirits. There were no spring rhetoricals of either class this year, for the reason that the inter-class debates took their places. The cast of "Spreading the News" follows: Bartley Fallon .,....... ........... L 'larence Fox Mrs. Fallon ..,..... ..... G ertmde WVilbur Jack Smith ...,.....,...,...,... ..............

Haven't you ever heard some one ask, "YS'hat's the latest?" Probably, if you're a normal person, you've done it yourself. Xvell, "something new" is the way to describe the novel means taken by the Junior and Senior classes this year to work out their excess enthusiasm, and to keep from boiling over in such a way that someone might be "burned," by a lecture from the "Powers That Be." No one seems to know just how it all started, but the writer has a sneaking suspicion that Miss Baker, our live-wire Public Speaking teacher, was at the bottom of it. At any rate, along about November lst the news swept around the school that the justamere Club was behind a proposition to stage a series of real, live, red-hot debates between the Junior and Senior classes. Friday afternoon, November 7, the whole school was invited to the auditorium. Every one was more or less curious as to what was going to happen, since this was a new departure from the ordinary run of school activities. After music by the orchestra, which on this occasion started its long and useful career, there occurred the first of the inter-class debates, which later aroused so much interest in the student body. This first debate was more or less of an experiment, for it was unknown whether or not the student br-'dy would favor the idea. The contest was close, the debaters being handicapped by a skeptical audience and the fact that they had to break the ice, the decision could have gone either way. After much delibera- tion the judges returned a decision in favor of the Juniors, who had taken the affirmative. After this there were three other debates, about one month apart. The original plan was to have five debates, but the Juniors won three of the first four, so there was no reason for holding a fifth. These debates were probably more profitable than they are generally believed to have been. They showed the people of Fin'dlay that the students of F. H. S. possess brains as well as brawn, and they also provided excellent training for our interscholastic debaters, who, by their aid, were able to make a clean sweep in the Triangular contests. A queer coincidence is seen in the fact that in every debate the Juniors had the affirmative, and the Seniors the negative. It is nothing more or less than coincidence for the debaters always gathered to- gether beiore beginning their preparation, some disinterested person fiipped a coin, and the winners of the toss chose their side. A brief outline of the debates follows: i FIRST DEBATE Question "Resolved, That the United States Should Intervene in Mexico Immediately." Affirmative, Juniors-Albert Boss, James Bope: negative, seniors-VValter McClelland, Leo Cunningham. Decision, Affirmative. SECOND DEBATE Question "Resolved, That Strikes Are justifiable." Affirmative, Juniors-Leon Mertz, Frances Taylor: negative, Seniors-Marion Conaway, Rolland Thompson. Decision, Affirmative. THIRD DEBATE Question "Resolved, That Military Training Should Bc Made Compulsory." Affirmative, juniors-Clarence Fox, Richafd Martzg negative, Seniors-Allan Kestle, Herman Gibson. Decision, Negative. FOURTH DEBATE Question "Resolved, That a Five-Year Ban Be Placed On All Immigrants Into This Country." Affirmative, Juniors-Esther Doerty, Gertrude VVilburg negative, Seniors--Evelyn Byal, Dorothy Bright. Decision, Affirnmtivc. -J. A. B., '21, Page Sixty-six THEJBLUE 'AND GOLD in the Commercial Department The Commercial Department of Findlay High School has won fame for old F. H. S. and itself from sea to sea and from the Lakes to the Gulf. Some of its graduates have gone out into the most remarkable and most successful business career. Let us go back some nine or ten years to the very infancy of the Commercial Department and as we pass along through the years, call back to mind those who have made an outstanding success in the busi- ness world. 1911-Here we notice Miss Florence Deihlman who took the Grst position ever held by a graduate of the Commercial Department of Findlay High School. Miss Deihl- man is now secretary to the General Manager of the Bock Bearing Company of Toledo, Ohio, and hol'ds a very responsible position. 1912-Miss Martha Fowler deserves mention from this class. She is now secretary to 1913- the Secretary of the Interstate Commerce Commission at Chicago, Illinois. Here we find Miss Mary Rummell. She took a position in this city hut later on attended the Gregg School at Chicago and then Bowling Green University at Bowl- ing Green, Kentucky. Since then she has taught commercial work in different parts of the United States. She took a position in lYashington when the war broke out and later was assigned as instructor in shorthand in the school for returned soldiers, at lVashington, D. C. She still holds this position. 1914-In this class we End Don Leader, Grace Letiferson, Glen Esch and Harold Palmiter, who have all been very successful in the business worl'd. 1915-Here come Mr. VValdo Bair, who took his Erst position with the Van Dom Electric Tool Company of Cleveland. He received promotions very rapidly and is now Assistant Sales Manager of that company. 1916-One member stands out verv clearly in this class, Mr. Charles Wisely, commonly known as 'Chuckf' has been successful in the business world but he also has an excellent war record. He was a second lieutenant and also a training officer in the army camps during the war. He is now with the Grant Motor Company of Cleveland. VVe also wish to mention here Mr, Carlton Herge who is with the Ohio Banking Company and who also had a fine war record. Another was Itlr. Ralph Keeran. otherwise "Cappy," who took his first position in Findlay. He was in the Navy during the war and is now in Texas in the employ ot' The National Supply Company. 1917-Miss Isabelle Alexander stan'ds out as the bright and shining star from the class of 1917. She took her first position in Findlay and then went into the govern- ment service at Washington, D. C, She is now in the Treasury Department at VVashington and is receiving a remarkable salary. 1918-The honors here are evenlv divided hetween Miss Odetta Spitler and Mr. Nierle 1919 Vileiger. Miss Spitler, since she graduated, has been with the Armour Company at Columbus, Ohio. She is now Cashier there and holds a very responsible position. Mr. VVeiQer has been unusually successful. In school he was the president of the first Senior Commercial Club ever organized in F. H. S, He went to Cleveland and there became secretary to the Treasurer of the Park Drop Forge Company. He is now with Lord K Burnham of Cleveland an'd is receiving a very large salary. -The standard of the Commercial Department has increased year bv year and here under 1919 one gra'duate stands above all the rest. Mr, XVavne VVeiger has been very successful. In the summer of his Iunior year he worked in the offices of the Park Drop Forge Company of Cleveland and had a :food position there. After he graduated he became secretary to the Secretary and Treasurer of the Giant Tire 'Page Sixty seven THE BLUE AND GOLD 8 Rubber Company. He has recently been promoted and has a responsible position. Our review is now tinisheld and we have located the bright stars of nine preceding classes. VVe can only prophesy as to the tenth, the class of 1920. The success of those former graduates is very remarkable and ver commendable. It is the knowl- edge of their excellent record that has inspired the class of 1920 to upliold the high standards set up by their predecessors. It has inspired in them the ambition to raise those standards higher and to surpass the preceding classes. Could we but look forward a len' years we might see this class achieving great things in the com- mercial ivorld. The future looks very bright and if this class fullills the great prophesies ma'de for it, it will add another to our Hall of Fame. -PEARL WILLIAMSON. f PROGRAM SENIOR COMMENCEMENT High School Auditorium Thursday Evening, May 27th 8:00 O'c1ock Overture.

Page Seventy-two THE BLUE AND GOLD On Saturday, Oct. 18, the team packed their grips and went to South Lima High, a recent entrant into the Northwestem athletic circles, and proceeded to play a game of football and staged a real corne- back before 100 Findlay rooters who accompanied the team. Capt. Crohen's run of 55 yards for a touch- down was the biggest feature of the game. Oh! yes! VVe won, 32-0. Saturday, Oct. 25, found Lima Central on the home field expecting an easy victory, but after the game .was over and the Lima boys had changed their opinion of the home team as being a soft bunch, they wearily wen'ded their homeward way that night, a group of sad but wiser boys. lVe had trounced them 26-0. ' The Napoleon game, which was set for Nov. 1 was canceled because of bad weather. On the seventh of the same month, who should honor us with a visit but our esteemed and honored friends from Mt. Cory. At the end of the game the score stood 33-0 in our favor. This was perhaps the most important game of the season for it illustrated some of the tine points of training with a clearness, such as few coaches ever attain by use of words alone. lt was because oi this game that the fellows saw wherein they were harming the interests of the team and everybody concerned by using cigarettes and owling around after dusk. In fact, this was the biggest factor in bracing the team against the strain of the three big games which were to follow, namely, Fremont, Fostoria and Bowling Green. The fifteenth saw Fremont here and rea'dy for battle royal. On this day DeHayes was in ine form and VVeinland was at his best, but unfortunately the rest of the team were restless and at times rushed ahead of better judgment. At the end of the game the score stood 2.2-O in Fremont's favor. By the way, the delegation of home rooters was not large and partly accounts for the loss of this game. On the verge of the Fostoria game, Dye, star R. H., and Sheldon, star C.,. were declared to be ineligible by the "powers that be". This was the hardest kind of luck and their loss was felt very keenly in the game that followed. In the first few minutes of play, De Hayes place-kicked a ball squarely between the goal posts. In the course of the game Herge was placed at fullback and displayed wonder- ful ability in line plunging. Little Dyer, midget R. H. played an incredible game, gaining even in line plunges. As a football player and man, George Dyer is probably more respected than any other player. He did not have anything more than plenty of grit and brains, but he knew how to work them. Too bad we lost this game, 35-3, but we undoubtedly left our footprints if not on the sands of time, most certainly upon at least some of Fostoria's physical geography. On Turkey Day the team journeyed to Bowling Green arfd played a tie game on a day which could not be called an ideal football day as it snowed and raine'd, making the field an unfit place on which to play. This game closed the season for the Findlay team with three victories, four defeats and one tie contest, a fairly good standing for an inexperienced eleven. The following are those who received the much coveted letter for good work on the gridiron. Also a few of their characteristics have been herein faithfully recorded. . Capt. Crohen . Crohen was placed at the wheel as captain and quarterback. Mike displayed unusual coolness and ability in leading the team out of tight places. He fought every minute of the game as only a son of old Erin can, and innumerable times he was the cause of a brace in the team when things were going badly. One of his best runs of the year was 55 yards, made at South Lima in a broken field. Mike can do anything that is possible to be done in football. He is an all around star an'd handyman. He may be back next year. Andrews Undoubtedly big Bill Andrews is a wonderful tackle. Possessing a cool head, a muscular body and a disquieting smile, Bill invariable managed to get into the opposing backfield and, once there, things began to happen. Unfortunately, Bill received an injury so serious that it was thought for a while that he would have to drop football, but luckily for the team, he was able to play later in the season. He will be back next year. "Bergo" Wilson "Bergo" was a Sophomore, but many rival teams conjectured that he was taking ri third year post graduate course from his playing. In tackling "Bergo" hit harder than any other man on the team. Better yet, he always went after another man, having laid one low. As a tackle, "Bergo" was invaluable and will be back next year to tackle that "Foster". Dysinger Dyke was another excellent man at either tackle or guard. He always played a hard consistent game and was the best kind of a teammate. He noticed every defect in the other team's teamwork and immediately profited by it. An example of this was shown when he recovered one of Lima's fumbles and gained much ground as a result. He always 'did more than his share of work. Hopper and Weinland Hopper and Weinland were two of the most valuable men on the team. YVeinland is a 10-second man and Hopper can undoubtedly make it when his knees, which have been previously injured, are not bothering him. These two men are written together because they are such great pals and came to F. H. S. from the same town. Hopper is a wonderful R. E. and a hard tackler. He boxed in nearly all of the runners around his en'd and the rest he tackled. He is a shiity man on his feet and hard to get away from. . As a halfback Lester Ylleinland. is in ma. class by himself. He was the fastest man on the team and picked holes in the line with amazing ability. His method of nabbing passes was to be noted and his tackling, sure and consistent. Schoolmates, if you have tears, prepare to shed them now. Both of these boys leave us this year, with a well earned diploma. S'long fellows, and good luck to you. May you have the same success in the game of life as you have had in that of football. Page Seventy-three THE BLUE AND GOLD "Fat" Hards Alfred Bards drew the fat man's berth, vacated the year before by Roy Burrel. Many of the fol- lowers of the game sadly lamented the fact that the two fat boys could not have played the same year. There certainly would have been a jam in the opposing lines. Fat was always at the bottom of every- thing and was a hard man to get over or around while it was an impossibility to exist under him. He will he back next year to take a nap on the Fostoria line. Q Sheldon Beyond a doubt Clarence Sheldon was the scrappiest man with a letter. Man times he has come from work in the morning, played a hard first half and after a brief intermission, has fought har'der in the second half than in the first. The way he stood up under line plunges from heavier men is remark- able. Unfortunately, Clarence found it necessary to leave school before the year was over. Dorsey V Dorsey was a tine all around man. He played end, tackle and center and proved himself to be an adept in each of these. He was of medium weight but knew the secret oi' throwing it into the place where .it would do the most harm. Too bad Lowell leaves us this year but the hard hitting methods he learned in football will materially aid him to some of the greater things in life. Herge There was always something queer about Ted Herge. His uncanny ways of rolling you 'teen feet and then smiling good naturedly about it, unnerved. many an excellent player. Ted's footwork was fme and his shiftiness is only' known to those who have tried to get in touch with him. He is an excellent line plunger as was proven in the Fostoria game. VVe hope he can be with us next year. Dye Paul Dye looked as if he had just come from a long course of training with Jack Dempsey. Dye was undoubtedly fast and it certainly was fun to watch the subs chasing him up and down the field to keep from losing their reputation entirely. We certainly hope that the final grades will tell us that he can play next year. Snodgrass . Snodgrass 'playe'd guard on the right side. His motto was "They shall not pass," and never was a motto more religiously lived up to. His shoulders were as hard as boards and they had to be padded to keep other teams from being cut to pieces. De Hayes Many a man has felt the leathern boards of Master Raymond. If you also wantlthat experience, just go out and cast yourself against a couple of telephone poles. That will give you a faint idea of the sensa- tion. Anyhow Raymond was certainly a big reason for the defeat of many teams. By the way, he made the only score on Fostoria last year. He was a past master in the art of kicking off, punting and passing. Tholse who were out all year but di'd not receive a letter are as follows: Platt, Wise, Dyer, Cooper, Eckhardt, McCarthy, Lea, Bub Renick, Gobrecht. McClure, Rhinehart, Kestle, Shultz, Vorhees, G. Smith are among those who were out in the course of the year. -RICHARD MARTZ. Page Seventy-four THE BLUE AND GOLD wp do E AQ mg We THE TEAM Manager ..... .....,........,..............v...,... I . E.

But our aggregation at last Page Seventy-six THE BLUE AND GOLD realized the condition of their patched team. We there met our first defeat 20-15. In this game we saw it lost by the inability to shoot fouls. On Thursday, February 12, Tiffin planned revenge and got it. VVe thought we had been invited to a dancing or roller skating party, but TifTin's boys thought they were playing football. The floor was very slippery, for there had been three 'dances on it that week. It proved the downfall of our team. Captain Duncan was back in the game and added much spirit to the team, but we lost 25-10. The team again journeyed to Lima on February 20 to meet Lima South which was overconfident from our two preceding defeats and our close gain over them. But in this game our team had regained confidence and strength and won 39-28. On February 26 our team journeyed to Delaware to take part in the state tournament. This is the first time that Findlay has been represented there for four years. The team arrived quite stale to play an'd with several men on the sick list. The team watched its first game with Huntsville and woke up just in time to win 19-10. That evening they played their second game with Barberton, a town near Akron. Here is where the team worked hard but didn't get anywhere. VVe made five fouls and so did the other team, but they were fortunate enough in securing two fatal goals. One in each half. The score was 9-5 in their favor. f On February 28 our team returned and the following week on March 5, Lima Central made a visit to our city. They were stronger than before but were defeated 25-13. March 11 our team encountered the Bowling Green aggregation in that city. They secured their favorite referee from Toledo and by means of football tactics en'deavored to "clean" our team the worst of the season, by a score of 22-5. Conaway was back in the game on this date, but was still weak and showed no class. This game lost the team the Trolley League Championship. The last game of the Trolley League came on March 19 at the "Y" gymnasium when Findlay met Fostoria for sweet revenge. This game was without a doubt the best and fastest game seen on the local court for years. Our team was behind until the last minute when a basket by Duncan tied the score 18-18 and the gun went off before either team could score. An extra five minutes was played to decide the tie score and Fostoria threw a foul, but Duncan threw another basket making the nnal score 20-19 for Findlay. The Alumni game was played next and all of Fin'dlay's former stars were in action. The Alumni team was composed of Routzon, Dunlap, Stough, Thompson, Misamore, Foltz. The proceeds of this game bought the team sweaters and the team surely wishes to thank the Alumni for their splendid gift. Duncan . At the beginning of the season Tom was chosen captain and Filled his job to perfection. VVhen Tom was in the game the team seemed to have more "pep". At center he set the pace for the team and it was some pace because he is tall and lanky, thus being able to cover the fioor like a rabbit. VVhen it came to tight places he was always on hand for two or three goals. 'I think that there was never a player Cmorel or a captain of basketball who played more conscientiously. Tom is one of the stars who will be missed next season when the call is sent out for try out. Weaver The small man Weaver was our main point maker of the 'season and showed -good ability in shooting fouls. "Rabbit", as he was called this season. played a consistent game. He' surely deserved his place on the team working three consecutive years for it. Helalways figured well in the team work and his services will be missed next season, since he graduates this year. Conaway I always dislike to hear any one boast about themselves so T shall leave the merits and mostly merits of this player to the reader. fEditor's Noted Conaway's playing was always of superior style, an'd he was a good running mate for Weaver and Duncan as most of their scores were made by direct passes from him. Bus was one nf the kind you couldn't kill.-THE EDITOR. Kestle He played a very good game all season. although he .did not.get an early start. He played the running guard position and counted much in the basket making. This is his First F. H. S., going the other four years at Xenia High School. Allen is another player who graduates this year. Elmore "Babe" and "Rabbit" were the only men who made the All-Trolley Tgeague team. "Babe" played a very stea'dy game at standing guard. He counted for much of the breaking up of the opponents' team work. He also graduates this year and will be missed next season. Lea "Dudley" played a good game when called upon, and showed "pep" and fighting spirit. Although he did not play enough halves to get a letter he surely deserves one. He graduates this year and certainly will be missed next year. Fellabaum D He was one of the best little. fighters on the team, but was handicapped by his weight and inexper- ieuce. He will be excellent material for next year. Vorhees Vorhees was one of the stea'dy dependable second team men who did not miss a night of practice and he certainly deserves his second team sweater. Byal Byal was another live wire man and to his hard work is due that good organization of the Reserve teani which gave the varsity some of the real hard knocks of a regular game on practice night. He also received a second team letter.

SECOND TEAM Marci 12 found the Reserves at the Bluitou Tournament, but they were unsuccessful and were deimted by Vanghnswille in the first game by a 25-16 score. But, remember, they fought every minute. The varsity-'s success is due much to the hard training given them by the Rserves, and there is some excellent material for next year. -MARION CONAWAX' '20.
