THE UE AND GO , S x 'il ? l1-5:1 '- 1s1"v - 'lr 4-sqm Q ! f wf K M! 7 'g li -- ' K ff T9 THE BLUE AND GOLD GOOD ENGLISH WEEK "Hurrahl Hain't we got fun!" "Sh h h: that is no way to talk," echoed a shrill voice from the hall. "XYhy what's the matter?" came the surprised answer. "Don't you know that this is Good English XYeek?" Then the light of intelligence began to dawn and upon .the realization of the serious error that they had made, they apologized and retraced their steps toward the As- seinhly-Room resolving to do their best tri help make Good English Wieek of '21-'22 a rousing success. In order that this cause might be furthered to the greatest extent possible. Blue and Gold tags on which were printed "Good English" were distributed to everybody. During the course of the ensuing week. original programs were given which were no less benehcial than the effect of the tags. Monday the campaign was launched with a very interesting talk given by Mabel George. Tuesday in a very interesting and novel manner the different departments were represented. showing how Good Ifnglish assists in every line of activity. XYednesday, appropriate songs were sung by the student body. Thursday the Freshmen. Sophomores, -Iuniors and Seniors gave a program which was very beneticial to all. In the first part of the varied program all the classes participated. There were several clever little stunts in which Humpty Duinpty and .-Xlice in XYonderland played the leading roles. It was especially interesting because of its humor and novelty. And what is a better way to bring the monotonous problem before the student body than by something which he can visualize? It was arranged that a clever little play let, written by Thelma Poole and Lois Hart be given. NVe can hardly do justice to the merits of the artistic posters which were designed by our students during the week. They were a great asset to our school. Let us hope that in the future we will always remember the lessons which this week has taught us. -MARGARET RUDOLPH, '22, SENIOR RHETORICALS "Grandma, now can't you come? The Seniors are going to give a program and you can come as well as not." So spoke a certain young Sophomore to her grand- mother, who had come to spend Thanksgiving with her. Ulf course, grandmother decided to go. At two o'clock that afternoon grandmother found herself seated in the High School Auditorium. wondering very much at the impetuosity shown by the various students. Such cries as these assailed her ears, "Come and sit over here", "Move down one seat, won't -you", and "Seniors. rah, Seniors, rah. rah-rah, Seniors," Indeed the poor lady had begun to think that there was to be no program, when our music de- partment gave us a sample of their work, This was vigorously applauded, although grandmother wondered how they could judge the merit of the performance when they had been talking all the while. "Now Grandma", said our Sophomore, whom we will call Mary, "This is ,lack Betts, the Senior President. They always have the Class President give an introductory speech. That girl is Ruth Harper, who is going to sing for us." Then Helen Reimund appeared dressed as a Puritan Maiden, which seemed to please grandmother very much. Following this Gladys Needles gave a vocal solo, Olive Bear told "XVhy High School Students Should Be Thankful," and Addison .-Xlspach gave a piano solo. Then Grandmother sat up in her seat for Emily Gibson told a story about Abraham Lincoln. "I liked that. for I always did admire Mr. Lincoln." grandmother remarked after Emily had finished. "But don't you enjoy this? You always seemed to like music," for Merlin Hosler was playing his Cornet. "Yes, I like it, but I enjoy Lincoln stories so much. "Now, grandma. you must listen to this for it is the Senior paper. 'The Flarllligllf-' Isn't the staff well chosen? They have chosen Margaret McLeod, editor-in-chiefg Frances Eoff, assistant: Treva Elsea. society editor: Harold Parsons. joke editorg Kenneth Shultz, Athletic editorg and Don Stillberger, cover-designer." "Now, Mary. who is that? I couldn't hear the name." f "That is Ruthanna Davis, grandma, doesn't she speak well?" Then Marjorie Koontz appeared dressed as a French maid and talked with a decided French accent. Page Ninety-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD "Why Mary, does she always talk that way? She doesn't? Well, I think that is real clever." "1fVell, Grandma, are you getting tired? Don Shaffer is going to sing a solo and the chorus will sing another number and that will end the program." "Well I think that was a pretty nice program. VVho helped those children get that all ready?", asked grandmother on the way home." "1Yhy, Miss Baker, grandma. She always knows just how to prepare a program." THE JUNIOR RHETORICALS One night, about four weeks before Christmas, the Junior Class was informed that Rhetoricals were to be given by them. As soon as they had recovered from the shock of this announcement, things began to buzz: meetings were held: long consultations with the powers that be took place: then someone had an inspiration and a definite plan for action was formed. An entirely original entertainment was developed and rehearsals began. The program, in the form of a playlet, opened in the drawing room of a rich home. The hostess enters and guests begin to arrive. The guests entertain themselves by music, singing and a short pantomine. The Junior Class is greatly indebted to Miss Culler, Miss Jenkins, Miss Snow, and our Faculty Advisor, Miss Hill, for the attention and work they have given us.

The spirit of democracy, which was shown through the life and work of that noble patriot, guided us in the planning and presentation of the program. Our aim was to give a few pictures of American life at different periods, showing some of the elements which have gone into the making and developing of America: some present day problems: and finally. the uniting of all the nations in peace and harmony with one other. A brief introduction preceded each scene. After each episode, appropriate music was rendered by a double quartette. First there was a little pantomine representing the Indians leaving the lands which the white men were beginning to claim as theirs. The next scene represented the life of the Pilgrims of New England. It was these brave and cheerful Pilgrims who sowed the seeds of our great American democracy. The spirit of 1776 was represented by a scene in Philadelphia on the evening of July 4, showing the inspiration and enthusiasm aroused by the signing of the Declaration of Independence, our first great step toward democracy. The spirit of 1860-'65 was portrayed in a camp scene when the news of the Emancip- ation Proclamation was reported. This showed the second step in the development of American democracy. , The modern trend of thought was shown by the conversation of three young Americans concerning prospects for world peace. To make our work more complete we attempted to represent the future, the unit- ing of all the nations in peace and harmony. Representatives of England, France. Russia, Belgium, Italy, Japan, and China, together with those who had taken a previous part gathered about Columbia and sang several patriotic songs. It would be impossible to name the participants in this program as the majority of the Sophomore class was represented. However it may be said that the pageant was entirely original being written by: Bernice Beeson Mildred Cole Everett Royce Marion Clark Florence D5 Rodes Ruth Riemourld Elizabeth Porter Evelyn Damon Page Ninetyfight -EVELYN DAMON, '24. THE BLUE AND GOLD JUSTAMERE BANQUET There are some things we can't forget and some we'll ne'er remember: some things are glad and some are sad and so we hold most tender. Our days of school like this we find-with high lights and with shadows.--remembrances tomorrow bring their thoughts both sweet and sad ones. lVe'll ne'er forget, we justameres, the banquet at the Elks' Hall on April seventh, twenty-two-not if the skies should fall. In truth it was a wondrous feast both gorgeous to the eyes and pleasing to the tongues of us-'twas managed by the wise. And then the board was cleared away and Crane, Symposiarch, presided o'er a program fine of speech and music art. Thirteen toasts in divers strains-alumni, members, friends, and patient faculty all spoke-for none we make amends. They praised, they urged, they prophecied, said welcome and. farewell, they raised the standard of the Club that we all love so well. They filled our hearts with high desire and set up goals for life, they spoke of every thing that helps to conquer in this world of strife. And interspersed with these were solos. vocal two, piano one-alumni, members, faculty.- Then our Song and all was done, The best of hopes the best of luck, the best of all be with you, for you're our Club and you have taught what we must always do. FRENCH CLUB BANQUET On the nineteenth d' avril, "Le Cercle Francais had its annual 'fsoiree" in the nature of a banquet given the juniors who will carry on the work next year. Our banquet hall was "La Salle Onzeh and our "bons petits francais" were some of our own members. The tables were decorated in the colors of 'tLe Cercle Francais" which are crimson and French blue. A banner made in these colors was quite prominent in the decorations. lt was indeed a most festive and enjoyable occasion. YYe do sin- cerely hope that it may prove an inspiration to the juniors to make the most of their opportunity to better their knowledge of French and that at the same time they may enjoy the many good times which the club enjoyed this year. The program had many interesting and worth-while features. -A., 22. Program Wfelcome to juniors ........ .................... . . ....

Matteson f THE EISTEDDFOD Among the musical activities of Findlay High School, one that has come and has taken its place in the recurring events is the annual High School Eisteddfod. Last year a competitive association was formed including high schools of XYest Central Clhio. The first meeting was held at Lima. The contest of 1922 was held in our own High School auditorium on April 28, with Dr, Daniel Protheroe, the splendid American composer of Chicago, acting as adjudicator. The singing was of a very high standard throughout. It was difficult to believe that boys and girls of high school age could show such skill in the art of singing, both in solo and ensemble work. The laurels of Findlay High School were preserved through the excellent singing of Elsie Roth, who outclassed her competitors in the alto solo contest, and by Donald Shafer, who carried home the "bacon" in the boy's solo contest. Others who represent- ed the school were: Beulah Orwick, Earl Hamilton, Mabel Gruber, Ruthanna Davis, Mary Brewer, Gladys Needles. Richard Firmin, Rudolph Amsler, Roberta Hanrahan, and Betty Brickman, besides the chorus and glee clubs directed by Mr. Roberts, The Girls' Glee Club did not get into the race for first honors, but the Boys' Glee Club and the mixed chorus were close seconds, being nosed out by the Van XVert schools in both instances. Besides being very interesting the Eistedclfod proved to be a very educative and instructive event, and is sure to give our singers a higher and clearer conception of singing from the standpoint of art. THE COMMERCIAL CLUB RECEPTION The 'Commercial Club Reception, an annual social entertainment given by the Senior Commercial Club in honor of the Junior Commercial Students, was held at the K. of P. No. 85 Hall, Friday Evening, April 21, 1922. Page Ninety-nine THE BLUE AND GOLD The Junior Commercial Students, the Faculty, and the Alumni were the guests of the evening.

Farewell Song was another new feature of the reception and many thanks are due Miss Hudnell who originated the idea and wrote the song. ' Everyone who appeared on the program received much applause and considerable talent was shown in originality, delivery and music. Immeditely following the singing of the Club Song. Howard XVest and Mary Brewer led the grand march to the dance hall where refreshments were served by three girls from the Sophomore Class. The color scheme of rose and grey. the club colors. was carried out in the refreshments as well as being used to decorate both the lodge room and dance hall in an artistic manner. The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing and those who did not care to dance were entertained with games. This was a new feature of the reception and was much appreciated by everyone. Ruth Harper and Howard XYest took charge of the games. This event is the last social function of the club, with the exception of the picnic. and was a splendid success. Much credit is due the executive. program and decorating committees for their untiring work and the Club Advisors. Miss Hudnell, Miss Snow and Mr. Hutson for the supervision which they gave. JUNIOR-SENIOR RECEPTION The annual junior-Senior Reception was held in the .-Xmerican Legion hall, Friday evening, May 5. 1922.

LINCOLN STUNTS GOOD ENGLISH The first public appearance of the Lincoln Freshmen was during Good English week. when six of our numbed were given the privilege of representing our school before the three High Schools assembled at Central High. They presented an allegory written by Evelyn Blue and Lois Kestle whose purpose was to impress the school with the necessity of Better English. Ralph Rosenberg. who represented the colloquial boy, proved himself very clever and humorous. as slang phrases were given both naturally and originally. Evelyn Blue represented newly coined words and brought out the great importance of Better English. which in every day life is almost unknown to her. James Parker played the part of archaic words by dressing as a very old man who was tottering and nearly ready to depart from this life. Thomas Fletcher by dressing as a ghost showed that the obsolete words are those of the past, and whose time of service in the world has long since passed. Henry Brown, who represented the doctor, by using the technical' terms played well his part. in fact we believe that there is a chance that he might some time make a doctor of himself. Page One Hundred THE BLUE AND GOLD Lois Kestle, made a typical Bridget, receiving her speech corrections very quietly but showing much dignity. -LUIS, '25. THANKSGIVING PLAY On the stage are Ceres, Pomona. Peace and Plenty. Father Time enters and also greets those on the stage. Mother Earth enters and also greets Father Time and the attendants. They discuss whether the human race appreciates their work. Time de- fends them and Mother Earth tells him he is wrong. Peace decides it by suggesting that they bring a mortal family up here and let him explain what he means by giving thanks. They decide that Peace is right. Peace and Plenty depart on their errand. The remaining four sing until Peace and Plenty enter bringing the human family consisting of grandfather, grandmother, father, mother, son and daughter. The grandfather. father and son praised the crops. The mother says that her way of en- joying the crops would be to eat them. Grandmother says that she would share them with others. The father and son say that the women folks don't seem to care wheit- it comes from. Ceres and Father Time agree with father and son. The daughter tells them that they have missed the meaning of Thanksgiving. The attendants question her statement. She says that Thanksgiving a, day. of thanks should be. All agree. The attendants bring in baskets. and the characters on the stage till them from the stores of harvest. XYhile thus engaged they sing to the tune of "Old Black Joe". "lYe have all learned the meaning of Thanksgiving Day". Peace ............................................................................................ ......

The Property Committee was composed of Ruth XYisely, Audrey Barkalow, Earl Hamilton and Don Corbin with Richard Oswald as chairman. "It Pays to Advertise" so we had an effective Publicity Committee composed of Margaret Dennison. Olive Shaw, Earl Hamilton, and Everett Myers with Francis Holliger as spokeswoman. Both committees are to be commended for their untiring efforts to make the play the success it was. Neither were we without faculty support. Misses Jenkins, Culler. and Snow worked hard coaching the cast. Miss Hill gave us her usual sound judgment. XYe even had financial support from the faculty. Mr. Finton advanced tive dollars of his own money to our cause. The Junior Class of '23 wishes to thank every one who assisted it with its class play. -XVADE KNIGHT.

First of all, to the Faculty, because we realize that their toilsome hours were for us. that our welfare was uppermost in their thoughts, and that in hours of leisure they were pals and friends. To the Juniors and Sophomores, because their associations with us was friendship. To the Senior Classes who have gone, because their mistakes have been our ht-lp and victories. To all of these we are grateful and although we can never repay them we hope that because of our efforts to be a big. successful class we may fall in line with those other classes which have made F. H. S. a school of which we are proud to be a part. To all the Senior Classes to come we leave our sincere regards and we hope that their spirit may cheer all Blue and Gold teams to glorious victories or inspire them to be as big in defeat. The Senior President wishes to devote this space to thank the Class of '22 and especially to the various committees for their co-operation with him in performing class duties because in those duties we have woven ourselves into an entangled mass of com- radeship which will live in our hearts as "High School Days." -JACKSON BETTS, President '22, Page Twenty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD THE TALE OF "TWENTY-TWO" How tempus does fugitlll Ah-h-h me-e-el! How tempus does fugit!!! XYhy it seems only yesterday that we were seated, in a more or less knee-panted and pig-tailed condition, on the F. H. S. stage lustily shouting the "Song of the Vikings" at those of our fond relatives who had come to see us graduate from the eighth grade. And now here we are four whole years later ready to repeat the process. How big we did feel that night. And how much more expansive did we become that following September morning when we packed up our brand new books and pencils and erasers and started out to give that mysterious realm known as High School the once over. There we were introduced to such delights and horrors as a tb-l-cl. the rule for the use of semi-colons. the history of the cave man's hatchet and other interesting bits of learning. This intellectual atmos- phere must have been a healthful one, for we thrived and grew fat-from the chin up. Vv'e had football teams, we had rhetoricals. we had clubs, we had orchestras, we had minstrel shows, we had plays,-why. ladies and gentlemen, we were Freshmen. Then one glad day school stopped, and we stopped being Freshmen. XVe were happy for we were free. But along OUP WOYUW PfESidCl1t toward the last of August it began to dawn upon us that yet a few days of untrammeled freedom and we, the Class of '22, would slowly wend our way to the majestic High School proper. Ah! How innocent we were. How carelessly, yea eagerly, did we walk into the very jaws of ignominy. XVe were fully prepared to come, to see, and to conquer. How glad Mr. Finton and the rest would be to receive into their midst such a talented, import- ant, intelligent fiock as wc! The day arrived-and so did we. But somehow the new assembly was prodigously large-and so were the desks. The teachers and Mr. Finton didn't seem at all impressed with our presence. and-well, we speedily and sadly learned that you may be some molecule at the Lincoln or the XVashington but you're only an atom when you come to Central High. How we were snubbed! How frigidly looked upon! Br-r-r! Really, it took us all year to become acclimated. But we 22's are a hardy race. XVe didn't mind for we knew it wouldn't be long until we became Juniors! And yet, when the time did come. we didn't feel so terribly elated. Those bitter experi- ences of the previous year had left us a sadder and a wiser class. But we really were of a little importance that junior year. XVe became a sort of poor relation to the Senior Class. and were patronized graciously by them. One evening after school we held a secret meeting, and from it emerged a perfectly organized, well lubricated machine, with Don Gassman holding the oil can. He made a famous president, and thanks to his skill and diplomacy, we came out triumphant from our many enter- prises. VVe made Thanksgiving famous with our Hiawathean rhetoricals. Wle won the Junior-Senior debate. The Junior play. "Officer 666," was a tremendous success, not only intellectually but financially as well. VVith the proceeds we treated the Seniors to an orgy of wildest dissipation in the form of dancing, pinochle, brick ice cream and speeches. Thus closed the third chapter of our mad career. Now we are Seniors. dignified, upper-crusty and legally entitled to such enviable rights and privileges as getting choice seats in Rhetoricals, editing the Blue and Gold, and snubbing the Sophomores. XVe have battled with the Juniors thrice and thrice have we hung our purple and white on the Debate. Again have we glorified Thanksgiving with our rhetoricals. and again are we to put on an unsurpassed and unsurpassable play. Yes, now we are Seniors-but let no man chant a "Requiescat" over our halo'd heads. for there be neither rest nor peace for us. For, we the Class of Twenty-two, have not finished our work. XVe have only begun. for, though scattered wide in future years, we shall remain true to the ideals set up in old F. H. S., and do our part toward making this world a better one. -MABEL GEORGE, '22.

Page Twenty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD CLASS PROPHECY Mr. Frank Slick, City Manager, Pittsburg, Pa. Dear Slick: I was very sorry that you were not able to attend our class reunion and learn the whereabouts and happenings of our old class-mates. Being a conductor on the city car line I am able to get in touch with a great many of our old friends and I met still others at the reunion. Governor Glenn Smith was, of course, the central tigure and the principal speaker. Other speakers were: Miss Edna Fenburg, Secretary of the Y. XV. C. A.g Miss Cleo Johnston. popular movie star, and Miss Ruth Van Yoorhis, correspondent for the New York Times. li-ob Galloway, manager of the park, turned everything over to us. The speaking ended with a prayer by Rev. Crane, after which we scattered for the various amusements. The main attraction was a ball game between the Central Drugs, tcaptain, Duane Davisj, and the Police Force Team, tcaptain, Francis Grantj. which contest was umpired by Edna Orwick, who has gained much fame along this line. Band concerts were given by the Hosler Concert Company. Richard Severns presented his troupe of South Sea Island Dancers. In the evening. Ethel and Maybelle Powell gave over to us the dance pavilion. Be- tween dances, selections were gix en by the Spit-tire Glee Club of Chicago, composed of Ruthanna Davis, Gladys Needles, Mary Louise Pocta, Hazel Fisher, Mary Brewer, Helen Huffington, Mildred Dorsey, Margaret Rudolph and Vivian Perkins. XYe were also pleased with singing by Don Shatter, the famous tenor, who has just returned from studying in Italy. After the entertainment, Ted Herge donated his Bus Line to carry us back to the city. I am just sure that you wouldn't know the old town. Across from the Hospital, the Bowers' Construction Company is erecting a magnificent ten-story building for Mr. Ralph Iiagy, the financier. The tirst Hoor will be occupied by the Creighton-Cole-Canfield Modiste Shoppe, which concern is of high calibre, having a branch shop in Cleveland. Other occupants in the new structure will be the Beauty Parlors operated by Edna Knight and Vesta Hartman: the Fiscus-Spitler-Coudy law tirm, which is very fortunate in secur- ing, as a stenographer, Miss Florence Agner, who holds the world speed test, Dr. De Haven, just back from completing a surgery course in Vienna, and Dr. Betty Kwis, who will open a dental oflice. I do1i't suppose you know that the Majestic Theatre had been taken by Martha Roller and XYanda Seguine and the show that is playing there now is starring Ruth Dye, a Findlay girl, risen in the ranks. I will not endeavor to relate any more of the fortunes and misfortunes of our former friends, but instead, I am sending to you some newspaper clippings which I have col- lected from time to time and which, I believe, will interest you. Yours very truly, BETTS. WUXSHINGTON, D. C.. jan. 5, 1942.-The Senate Chamber was packed this after- noon when President Gassman presented the Irish Treaty before that body for its approval. The treaty was ratitied almost immediately, the only opposition coming from Senators Shull and Gillespie, both from Ohio. Directly after the Senate's ratification, Secretary of Navy Long recalled the American squadron, under Rear-Admiral Taylor Latchaw, from the Irish Sea where it had been guarding our commerce in the troubled zone. Ireland's signing of the treaty was brought about largely through the efforts of our ambassador to that country, Mr. XYilliam DI. McCarthy. FINDLAY, june 18, 19-ltl.-Congressman'Voorhees' of the Mortimer District in the State Legislature was brought home in a serious condition as a result of overwork in attempting to put through a bill tor the Prohib1t.on ot Sidewalks Next to Curbs.

The auto was towed to Alexandefs Garage for repair. Page Twenty-four THE BLUE AND GOLD HONOLULU, July 30, 1936.-The American seaplane N-C-14 landed in the bay, early today, after its memorable flight across the Pacific. Lieut. Com. VVise was con- gratulated by Governor-General Byal for his bravery. Miss Frances Eoff, the famous aviatrix, who piloted the giant craft part of the way, was dined by the Air Club of the Orient, at their marble palace down at VVa-ki-ki. Chief Radio Operator West was a physical wreck after his long weary hours at the key-board. President Gassman sent his congratulations to the intrepid fliers. FINDLAY, April 3, 1934.-Misses Josephine Marshall and Olive Stevenson, who were found guilty of manicuring their linger nails on Blue Sunday at Lakeside, were conducted home by Sheritf Shultz and Deputy Sheriff Emily Gibson, where they were set free on a 310,000 bond furnished by Mildred VVhetstone of the Anti-Blue Sunday Association. FINDLAY, Sept. 12, 1936.-Today the school bells tolled for the first time for the city's youngsters.

SCHENEICTADY, N. Y., Nov. Sl, 1956.-The Misamore Publishing House an- nounced publicly, yesterday, that it had not gone into the receiver's hands as was thought. Vice-President Bishop stated that three novels alone brought enough to run the establish- ment for tive years. The first was "Friitzie-Boy," a Tale of a Dog, by the popular novel- ist, Lois Hart. The second was "Batter Up" by Thelma Poole, and the last, "The Knife," a ripping story, by Margaret McLeod. All three novelists have gained fame both here and abroad. tFrom an article in a Findlay paperj The Ford delivery truck belonging to the dry goods firm of Browneller and Copus was found on the outskirts of the city by Policewoman Esther Hall. Miss Catherine Brunk of the local library announced that the following new books will be on the shelf next week: "How to Cook" by Helen Reimund, "The Art of Tatting" by Ruth Risser, and "ln the Music Room" by Lucille Steen. The T. K O. C. gates at Sandusky Street accidentally dropped on the Rolls-Royce sedan occupied by the Misses Florence Ewing, Dorothy Morris, Mary Ellen Miller and Ruth Johnston. All of the occupants were on their way to the "Kenilworth Kountry Klub" and, fortunately, none were injured. It was learned that the Misses Leah Strathman and Genevieve Wells would receive Carnegie Medals for bravery. It will be remembered that, together, they jumped into the Blanchard River and pulled out Dorothy Phillips who had fallen off the pleasure boat belonging to Miss Esther Inbody. Page Twenty-live '.

School life to the next stop. YVe had already passed two stops. At the beginning of our journey in 1919 our Hivver was a brilliant green and we started from Yerdant Village on the way to Sopho- more Inn, In spite of the fact that our Hivver was so shiny and new, it was a R-e-g-u-l-a-r one and we lost several nuts and bolts on the road. But it is an ill wind that blows no- body good and the Class of 'Z-1 sent us the following letter: l'Dear Class of '23: IYe wish to thank you for the contributions listed below, which were picked up on the road of school life after your successful journey: "Seven bolts fseven school-clubs organized for usb. "One tool chest." t'Funds from the cantata, "The Rose Maid," used for an oak read- ing table, subscriptions to some current magazines and to cancel the debt on IVashington pianoj, The road between Yerdant Village and Sophomore Inn was quite smooth, having been paved recently, although there were some narrow passes to spoil the pleasure of the Class. Examination Pass was one. Wfe arrived successfully at Sophomore Inn. The road between Sophomore and Junior stops is very rough and we were warned to run slowly and watch the danger signs carefully. XVhen about one-third of the way, we sighted a glaring sign that read, "Morning Exercises, classes, choose your morning." XYe chose Tuesday. Our Hivver did not lose any of its parts this time, but the axle seemed to serve as a magnet and we picked up the majority of the Junior and Senior Ctlstolils. VVe carefully scanned the sign posts for instructions and directions to the Junior road. VVe spied a detour with an index finger pointing to these words, "Sophomore Rhetoricals. This road seldom used." That "seldom used" inspired us to use it and thus it is that we gave appropriate rhetoricals on Lincoln's birthday and the gate to the detour has remained open ever since. At the end of this journey our Hivver was badly worn and the green was very much worn off, so we held a class meeting to decide upon our new chauffeur, trimmings for our car and the Chief mechanics to keep the car in repair. Of course Newton Priddy is our chauffeur, and Peg Renninger was chosen assistant chauffeur. Betty Brickman must pay for the new tires and Ethel Dorsey must keep a detailed account of our behavior through- out the Junior year. The car is gaily decorated with scarlet and white garlands. VVe had noticed that the Rhetorical sign called for Christmas Rhetoricals and so we found ourselves enjoying an original play composed and presented by Junior talent. While speeding on Junior road our engine became overheated and we decided to stop at an Inn ahead and let it cool off. But we were unfortunate, for it proved to be "Inn Bad" where we met some Senior friends and such debates ensued that we had to call in judges, who rendered decisions against us Juniors. We were again on our journey when we heard a horn honking vigorously. VVe knew it was Cop Finton and we slowed down obediently. His mission was to announce that the Junior play would be on March Sl. Then we broke the speed limit set by former classes and gave, "Martha by the Day." Really it was a marvelous success and our tin- lizzie fairly jumped over a ditch in its glee over the result. Wie had not journeyed far when we had a blow-out. Our mechanics did not whimper or shed tears because they must pay for a new tire. Oh, no! we Juniors rejoiced and invited the Senior Class to share in our blow-out, the long-to-be-remembered Junior and Senior Reception, given on the fifth day of May, Now at last we have reached the Junior station and will renew our journey with increased vigor so that next year we will pull into the Senior Station at dear old F. H. S., thence to depart for the wide, wide world. -RUTH E. FULLER. Page Twenty-nine E H I. U-E A N D G O 7' THE BLUE AND GOLD Tl THE BLUE AND GOLD HISTCRY OF THE CLASS OF 1924 "A Sophomore knows not and knows that he knows not." -Shakespeare. The majority feeling thus. maybe a few otherwise, nearly two hundred young urchins and future home-breakers, as the Juniors call us. trod into that vast unknown quantity of space, which somebody called the Assembly Room. XVe did not sustain that air of world mastery that we experienced as Freshmen. when we were IT. at our royal palaces at the Lincoln and Vtfashington Schools. Little we thought in our minor, but finer royal court. that we were to become enslaved in the emperor's-Mr. Finton's-palace by knowing superiors. VVe thought as Freshmen, "Isn't high school great?" But, alas, every dog has his day: so had we. By our elders. the juniors and Seniors. we were spurned, hissed, and snarled at. Most of us, in trembling fear, took it all in. A few may have rseponded rather heatedly, only to sink deeper into that raging sea of Sophomorism. A few more tender-hearted old-timers, having passed through the same experience themselves, told us solemnly to have "Faith." "Oh, Satan, where art thou?" Our only standby. and that was glorious, was OUR superiority over those innocent, unsuspecting ignorant Freshmen, whom we could in turn, shun and be satisfied. XVe could laugh in glee at the thought of when they. with swollen crests. would taste the formerly forbidden fruit, the Central High School. After a month or so of this poverty. we began to come in to our own. IVe began to look on the word Sophomore in a different way. It suddenly occurred to some of our enlightened intellects that Julius Caesar once fought with some people called Helvetians. We had not known that before. XVe were learning something. VVe began to get the connection of what we were supposed to have been studying. VVe had furious struggles with the great Charlemagne. One of our smart Commercial Pupils made the astounding discovery that if you added up a column of tigures twice, you got different answers. Our ambitious bookkeepers, not librarians. began to show real business genius. Some of our Commercial Students show great promises of becoming Secretaries of Labor under future President Bryan. Our manual training boys are getting tired of making lamps, so one of their number, Don Crawford, has invented a wooden spittoon for his own purposes. Some of our fair damsels have succeeded in making roast steak and fried Mexican stew. VVe have striven hard to learn just why a triangle can be proved to look like a circle. The easiest way is by one of those beautiful, expressive similes Miss Kiefer tells us about, likening a three-sided church steeple to the sun. About the same time of year that XVashington was born one hundred and ninety years ago, our class gave a presentation of great theatrical value. It was a historical re- view of America. Some of our future stage masters, Everett ROyCe in particular. showed real talent in performing that dramatic Shakesperian role of a Civil XVar commander. That vast quantity of our class, Fred Leary, succeeded in obtaining a position on our notorious gang of pigskin chasers. Also, enter Russell XYellman, quarterback. IVe had too, a number of almost-but-not-quites who will be there for the big cake next year. In the music department, we have Roberta Hanrahan and Florence DeRodes. who have succeeded in being inferior to Paderewski solely. Our pretty young Blonde, Eugene Heischman, established himself as the second coyote of the world-renowned Starlight Quartet. Our best canary bird, a true rival of Galli-Curci, is Mable Gruber. In that thrilling serial. "The Building of the Ship," she aided much in the construction. VVe sturdy rock-pounders have only to wait patiently until we have struck mud in the sea of Sophomorism. Then during the summer we shall rise and by September-"NVE ARE JUNIORS." That's all-and That's enough.

Miss Jacobs, our principal, right up to snuff, She never gets grouchy or scolds-very much. Her judgment is right: she always is square: But never miss school if you're s'posed to be there. Our teachers are all quite as good as they make, And it is no trouble for us to relate. Their good points are many, their bad ones a few: Miss Kieffer, Miss Kuenzli, and Miss Gilbert, too, Mr. Shull and Mr. Hybarger both of our number One lumbers in Eguresg one hgures in lumber. Now harken my children and you shall hear Of the greatest events in this great Freshman year. One famous Fine day we shall ever remember, Our start to school in early September. We were fresh and bright green with cheeks painted red, And displayed here and there a rather swelled head. Student Council, our wise and good Ol governing few, Tell all Washingtcnians when and what they're to do. In autumn came football with whistle and cheer, We helped the team Fight every game of the year. They fought a good fight just as each one has seen: And we, too, are proud of our crackerjack team. Of course we like fun, that's good any time, But serious things have a place in this rhyme. Fire Prevention Week program taught all "Safety First. To be reckless is bad, to be careless the worst. The next day our grade cards came sailing our way, We coughed and sputtered for many a day. jack o'Lanterns and gobblins met ghosts gaunt and grim At Vocational parties with lights soft and dim. Then Christmas excitement brought "Scrooge" and his ghost, A new stage and curtain and footlights-almost. Astronomy Club was the troupe, came from Mars, Star-study has made them theatrical stars. The basketball season brought forth battles royal, The challenge was made and each man was loyal. With ice and snow came skipping and skating, And at nite to the Swale many couples went dating. Many seats were empty, the students were sick, A trip to the ice would disclose their tricks. At the end of the first half came stiff 'zaminations, A few sad days later, distressed lamentations. The contest for merits came at last to a close, Astronomy won. as every one knows. Boys' Vocational and Commercial came in on low gear, But they gave us a banquet--the best of the year. In Irvings quaint "Sketch Book" some new friends we made, With "Ichabod Crane" and "Katrina" we played. On Washington's birthday we saw America grow, As we watched the great Sophs stage their excellent show, From King Alexander we learned quite a bitg In battle and conquest he never said quit! In algebra, graphs were hard nuts to crack. But now we have laid each one flat on its back. In English we've battled with punk punctuation- Used commas and periods without hesitation. Brain food served from books was forgotten indeed, At the Boys' Vocational and Commercial Club feed. Our teachers were luckily saved from dismay, As Saturday proved to be April Fools Day. For spring time a festival gay is the thing, "The Rose Maiden" chorus made old Findlay ring. They tell us this year we're the worst of the lot, But I'm trying to tell you we simply are NOT. -ARCHIE JOHNSTON. Page Thirty-five THE BLUE AND GOLD ? ,Y Ab QI S 1 , i Ea Page Thirty-six THE BLUE AND GOLD LINCOLN HIGH CLASS HISTORY A BOOK OF CHRONICLES Away back in the dim and distant ages of the past, even in the very beginning, there were Freshmen, and, tradition tells us, these Freshmen were verdant. Some were very verdant, indeedg some much less so: and some had scarce a tinge of that hue sacred to the memory of St. Patrick. As Freshmen were, so they are now, for they change not with the passage of time tat least not muchl. In the autumn of 1921 a class of Freshmen belonging to the last group above men- tioned entered Lincoln High School. Now, because Utenipus fugit." these same Freshmen will soon become Sophomores. But ere Father Time turns one more sheet in the Ledger of Life, it behooves some historian to chronicle the doings of this class. The tirst day of their Freshmanhood was marked by some confusion. The class rooms were hard to locate: it almost seemed as though they moved about once in a while. A Freshman wishing to study Algebra found himself unexpectedly in a Latin class and some even dreamed the time away in the Assembly room while some teacher in a distant room was marking them absent. But in a few days these minor disturbances adjusted themselves and the Freshies of 1921-ZZ settled down to work. The first notable event was Good English NYeek, the Freshmen being invited to attend the program given at Central High. liven thus early our brilliancy began to make itself evident, for on this day an allegory written by two of our gifted ones was presented by some of the Freshmen. In our classes, we made posters, wrote poems, plays, and parodies. Two of the latter, to the tunes of "Peggy O'Neil" and "Mamniy," we all sang most lustily in the Assembly. On Thanksgiving Day we demonstrated our remarkable dramatic ability by present- ing a play for the entertainment of the class. Verily some of us may in time come to rival even Bernhardt herself. During Good English XYeek we behaved so well and were such an appreciative audi- ence that on Christmas we were again invited to Central High-this time to Junior Rhetoricals. VVe enjoyed them very much. Our class was always doing something. Now we organized two clubs, the Science and Debating Clubs. The Science Club with the help of Mr. Green, gave a picture show, but the exertion evidently "finished" them. for we heard little more about them. On W'ashington's birthday, the Debating Club. coached by Miss Moore and Miss Cratty, gave a debate as to whether XX'ashington or Lincoln was the better man. It was never decided who won. On the same day, Miss Coates originated a cherry tree, and joe Foster, acting as George XYashington, gave the cherries to those whose names were on them. These came forward and read the verse or joke found within. An orchestra was organized which was composed of piano. two violins, two cornets, saxaphone, guitar and drums. They played for Us in the Assembly, and sometimes accom- panied while we all sang popular airs. One day the XYooster Glee Club favored us with a visit and sang several selections. Mr. Green, an alummis of XYooster, sang with them. VVhen the Findlay Real Es-tate Board offered prizes for the best essay on "VVhy Own Your Own Home," there was a great deal of excitement and hard work in our midst, but it paid. All three prizes which were awarded went to Lincoln Freshmen, although all the Freshmen and Sophomores were competing. Not to be outdone by the NVashington Freshmen, we organized both a Boys' and a Girls' Basketball Team, either one capable of beating anybody. The girls' team defeated both XN'ashington and Central High, leaving them the champions of Findlay High Schools. Great was the day when our boys' team defeated the high and mighty Seniors trah. rali, rahlj Cheer leaders were needed to hack these wonderful teams. TherCfOfe. IVHII Buffcll and Mary Brickman were chosen to help us develop our vocal chords. They certainly succeeded. We also had to have class colors, for what team can play unless they have colors? As this was such a weighty matter, we spent much time in thought, and after lengthy deliberations, scarlet and gray were chosen by ballot. The Class of '25 is noted along many lines, not omitting that of whispering and giggling, The teachers were in despair until one bright member of our faculty had the happy inspiration of having an eighth period. All those who whispered were allowed the pleasure of staying in forty-hve minutes after the others were dismissed. Strange to say, the whispering subsided a little. If time and space were given this historian, much could be told regarding the remark- able scholarship of this class. Numerous were the nineties on the grade cards-in fact, so numerous that the teachers even thought of promoting some pupils to the Senior Class. Remarkable, also, was our musical ability. Never before in the history of the Lincoln School had such sweet t?l strains issued from the Assembly Room as when we CContinued on Page Forty-four.l U Page Thirty-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD Zin jllilemumam ,Q During the past year two of our loyal schoolmates have been sum moned from our midst. Elizabeth Gohlke, who was a member of the i Class of '22, died July 19, 1921. Our other friend was Mona Parks who , belonged to the Class of '23, She was called to the Great Beyond March 22, 1922. We feel towards these friends as the poet Holmes, who says "Love dies not when he bows his head V To pass beyond the narrow portals,- The light these glowing moments shed Wakes from their sleep our lost immortals, i They come as in their joyous prime, Before their morning days were numbered,- Death stays the envious hand of time,- The eyes have not grown dim that slumberedl The tangling years have clinched a knot Too fast for mortal strength to sunderg The lightning bolts of noon are shot, ' No fear of evening's idle thunder! Too late! too late!-no graceless hand Shall stretch its cords in vain endeavor To rive the close encircling band That made and keeps us one forever!"

The football season was a dismal failure, basketball was not much better, very few kept training or cared enough to remain eligible, and only about one- tenth of the school supported its own activities In the face of such conditions we couldn't expect much sympathy from Findlay citizens. It had been some years since we had had a professional athletic coach and the year's complete failure seemed to show the dire necessity of having one if Findlay High School was to be pulled from the mire and Dlaced on its old proud level. ' VVe left school last june thinking and talking, but doing nothing more: we expected to witness the same conditions this year. But when August had rolled by and we all trooped back to school Behold! The much hoped for change had occurred! At first it was hard to realize how it had all come about, but soon we understood to whom we owed our debt of gratitude-"The Business Men of Findlay." They were the ones who were instrumental in securing for us a competent coach, Robert Fletcher twe think they couldn't have done betterl. They have willingly helped in every way possible since that time. The American National Bank donated blankets to the football team and we were supported by the citizens as we have never been during the history of the High School. Coupled with this sudden change in spirit without, came an equally sudden change in spirit within the school. The football field and basketball tloor were crowded with new material, new yells were made, songs were composed, a band was organized, and the school as a whole appeared more loyal and enthusiastic. Many times this year has our spirit been commended, but we must always keep in mind the people who made it possi- ble, who started the ball rolling-"The Business Men." XVe thank them for the hearty support and co-operation they have extended us and may we always conduct ourselves so KEEP ON WISHING When we were verv small children we were told that, if we wished long enough and hard enough for something. we would never fail to get it. And we have sat with our eyes tight closed and wished and wished that Santa Claus would bring us a tin horn or a doll baby. Because we invariably received what we had wished for, we never have quite grown away from the idea. So it is. that the students of F. H. S. have wished and wished for a new high school with all the modern equipments, Although it has not, as yet. loomed over the horizon, we are still wishing. On rainy days when the roof leaks and the raindrops splash into tubs scattered around the rooms, we compose songs about as to be deserving of it. Page Forty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD "Our New High School" and set them to the music of the pitter patter of the rain. VVhen it has been so cold, that we shivered in our seats, we blew hot words upon our fingers concerning our opinion of the present edifice. Although the cold has been partially remedied by the installation of better heating facilities, the poor ventilation has been bettered by the replacing of some broken window panes, and the leaky roof can be repaired. the high school cannot remain in its present state. The over-crowded classrooms and the lack of modern equipment in the various departments is deplorable. Aside from the fact that the present condition of our school is inhibitory to the best mental efforts of the students, it is also detrimental to the efficiency of the instructors. It matters not how many AB's, PhD's and R.S.V.P.'s a teacher has acquired at the end of his name if the structure in which he instructs is destructive to his ability to construct the instruction of the pupils. So for four long years the present Senior Class has wished for a beautiful Well- equipped high school of which we could be proud. And I wonder if. as a reward for our patient, unceasing wishing we mav, in the years to come, gather our children around us and say: Have you ever heard the story of how our High School got its name? I'll tell you so you'll understand from whence our new school came. No wonder that we're proud of that new building that we seel For this is how a member of the School Board told it me. ,lust a little bit of pep fell on the Board one day. And stuck right in their meetings just bound to have its way. And when the citizens heard their plan, it seemed so very fair- They said "You're right! lt is the place, we'll put the new school there!" So they tore down all the houses and the old building, too. And built a High School up-to-date. and all complete and new. And they built in a gymnasium. for the students' brain and brawn, And when they had it finished, 'twas a credit to the town. They equipped it with good teachers. the best tor miles around. And no where else on God's green earth can better work be found. No wonder the Alumni gaze and for their school days sigh. 'Tis the finest school in ali our state and we call it Findlay High! IS THE SCHOOL BEHIND ATHLETICS? This has been a much debated question. For the last two or three years it looked rather doubtful, but this year we had in charge of athletics a Board whose primary inter- est was a betterment of athletics and its participants. It was through this Board that Findlay appeared in suits which, coupled with their playing ability, won for them the name of "The Golden Tornado." This same Board had the basketball team equipped in the best suits that has ever been seen on a Findlay High School team. This Board made it possible for Findlay to have something that F. H. S. had almost forgotten existed, a Baseball Team. Through the aid of this Board we were able to schedule games for the third team in football, an unknown thing in the past years. This held the interest of the players all through the season. We owe the Board our thanks in making it possible for Mr. Fletcher to carry thc number of men he did on his trips, which was undoubtedly one of the main reasons why Findlay was so successful. They also recognized man's tenderest spot. his stomach. because we were always fed the best obtainable for a training table and lots of it. Vtle wish to express our thanks to the members of the Board who are: I. F. Matteson, Superintendent of the Schools and Chairman of this organization. D. S. Finton, Principal of Central High School. C. R. Green, Principal of the Lincoln School. Miss Jacobs. Principal of the Wfashington School. I.. E. NValters. Teacher and Treasurer. Mr. Boman, Teacher and Manager. Mr. Robert Fletcher, Athletic Director and Coach. John Roberts and Don Gassman, student representatives. The Board has tried to bring out the fact that athletics are for the school, for the betterment of the school as a whole and the scholars particularly. There has been seem- ingly in past years an inborn tendency on the part of the pupils to run down the Board. This year saw the beginning of the decline of that feeling, because the pupils are realizing the benelits derived from such an organization. Next year by the co-ordination of the students and board we may have student management, a thing long desired. and one which would make athletics truly a school institution. It is now up to the pupils to make this thing possible. Pupils, come across! ' Page Forty-two THE BLUE AND GOLD The highestntribute or vote of thanks we can give to th-is Board is to give each member an individual writcup, such as is accorded to a successful athlete. I. F. Matteson A man always interested in boys and girls and their success.. Hle is an -ardent fol- lower of athletics and a promoter of clean sports. As chairman ot tlns organization Mr. Matteson was able to put in execution his ideas of clean sportsmanship. D. S. Firiton Although Mr. Finton was overloaded with work. he could always hnd time to devote to athletics. As a member of this board, Mr. Finton was always a father to lns pupils and was at all times ready to help them. L. E. Walters For several years -Mr. XYalters has oliiciated as treasurer. .-X better man for this position could not be found. Mr. XX'alters devoted time to this work which he really could not spare and at times it seemed as it his work was not appreciated. XYe, as pupils of Findlay High School, sincerely hope that as long as there is athletics in old F. H. S. we will find Mr. XYalters acting as Treasurer. Mr. Bomari Mr. Boniaifs work as inanagcr is deeply appreciated by the students of li. ll, S. as well as the citizens of Findlay. XYe are hoping that next year we may again bcneht by the services ot this man. Mr. Robert Fletcher Mr. Fletcher, as coach, turned out some of the snappiest teams that has ever repre- sented Findlay Hlgh School. He has decided that he will be back next year, tor which we are all sincerely thanktul, and we wish him the best of success. C. R. Green Mr. Green's interest in athletics made him wholly acceptable as a member of this board. He was 'always ready to help any person who was down in his grades so that he would be eligible to participate in the games. Miss Jacobs Miss ,lacobs was as deeply interested in athletics as any man. Her work and the help she gave to athletics will always be appreciated. Student Representatives Don Gassman, as student manager, and -lohn Roberts, as his assistant, represented the students in a highly commendable way. XYe wish to tender our thanks to them. PAUL DYE. BILL ANDREVVS. TRAINING It is with both anxiety and regret that we now take up the subject of "Training.'l Members of Findlay High School, it's time we consulted XYQ-bster and learned the mean- ing of that word!! ln everyday vernacular it means to "keep fit." XYe talk about it and say we try to do it. but oh. what a feeble attempt it isl XYe try to keep training, oh yes, we try, but we just don't seem to be able to buckle down to it. Fellows, we have to stop fooling and get down to business. XXI- have been given a bigger advantage than Findlay High has ever had before and it is up to us to make the most of this opportunity. XVe owe it to ourselves. to the school, and the business men, who are so interested in us. Now some of us are smoking and chewing and worst of all, we are not keeping our studies up to the required standard. Come, men, stop thinking of yourselves for awhile and think once or twice of good old Findlay High School, the school you represent. and the friends LOOKING FORWARD! This little paragraph. as the title suggests, records a few thoughts of what the future might hold in store for our school. Hut before we proceed to do so. let us look backward and review a few events in which we have been vitally concerned. Taking all in all, we have had a more successful season in all branches of activities than any other during the last four or five years. But although generally we have been successful there remained one thing in which we were all disappointed and chagrined. Fostoria beat us in every- thing we contested with them except piano playing this year. They roped us in and tied us till we were helpless in football, twice in basketball, and in debate. Those were hard pills for us to swallow but we downed them as best we could and began to prepare so that such a thing should not happen again next year. But after all. it's not how you win or lose: it is the spirit you display in so doing. Fostoria won and they displayed good spiritg Findlay lost, and took its defeat like men and women should. But, next year the returns are going to look different and then, then we shall put the acid test to their sportsmanship. In the meantime and ever after let us remember that it is easy to be courteous and display good spirit when you are winning, but the real test of sportsman- ship comes when you lose. who support you. Page Forty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD WEDNESDAY "SING" One of the pleasant memories which we shall have from this school year is that of our 1Vednesday morning "Sing," Heretofore, we have always had morning exercises, lasting approximately ten minutes in length. This year, our music director, Mr. Roberts, made it possible to have a twenty-minute period, once a week, devoted entirely to singing. Words cannot express the enjoyment we derived from this. It has brought order out of the chaos of our minds and made them ready for the work of the day. It has taken the grouch out of our system and put "pep" into our being. VVe feel that it is due Mr. Roberts to express our appreciation of this, and we wish him the greatest success in all his undertakings. 1Ve only deplore the fact that We will not be here next year to help "Row the Boat," and enjoy the other songs of the VVednes- OUR CHAMPION SALESMAN "Nothing is taken away but what something is given in its place." is an old maxim which has proven true in F. H. S. this Year. XVhen the gods decreed, last year, that it was time for "Mike" Crohen to "move on," the school was left in consternation. What would become of the subscription list of the Blue and Gold? tIt will be remembered that Mike sold 10.3 subscriptions.l However, though the memory of Mike's brilliant career in F. H. S. lives on, his place as chief salesman of the school annual has been ably and capably filled by XVilliam Andrews. His sales at this time of writing are 113, and miracle of tniracles, he is still going!!! Good luck to you, Bill! May you be as successful in everything you attempt. ADVERTISING It is deemed expedient at this time to say a few words concerning the advertisements in this annual. This year seems to have been a productive one in the procuring of ads, and people are becoming more and more alive to the possibilities of advertising. 1rVe have worked hard this year and we feel we have produced an annual in which anyone may be proud to have his advertisement. Our department this year has been very active and the results of its efforts can be seen in the advertising section of this annual. VVe owe a debt of gratitude to the following students who acted as solicitors: Don Corbin, Don Dorsey, Carmen Edwards. Bert Gunderman, Gerald Smith, Elmo Tyner, Alfred Hards, Earl Hamilton, Frances Eotf, Ethel Dorsey, Merlin Hosler, William McCarthy, Don Stillberger, Kenneth Shultz, Newton Priddy, Merle Bishop, Lois Hart, Ted Lang and Fred Leary. The team composed of Don Stillberger and Kenneth Shultz collected the highest amount of advertising. Elmo Tyner was the highest single solicitor. day morning program. LINCOLN HIGH CLASS HISTORY ffontinnetl from Page Thirty-Seven! sang. Even Mr. Roberts noticed this. So, as a result, we gave "The Rose Maiden," Friday night, April seventh, as a closing episode in our career as Freshmen. It was a wonderful success. at least in our opinion. MVC? must not forget to mention the addition to Mr. Shull's family. VVe all want to see little Miss Shull soon and hope she may live to be a Freshie and have a papa for a teacher. Thus endeth the Book of the Chronicles of the Freshmen Class of 1921. Our great and valorous deeds will go down into history and our fame be undimmed through the years.

He looked rather plump and small, but once you dived into him you changed your mind at once. He played halfback this year, and only the slight reminder that he made fourteen touchdowns is needed to 1nake you realize that he wag a speed merchant. He says he is coming back next year to double it. Here's hoping Paul. Alfred Hards-"Alphie." He played guard and is quite small for his 194 pounds. NYe all took our hats Off to Alphie in the Sandusky game. He saved the day hy tearing through their line and steam-rolling their backheld hefore it could get started. He will be back next year for his fourth stripe. William Andrews-"Bill," A fellow doe5n't like to criticise himself so l'll take this opportunity to spare myself. Editors note-Anybody who likes football can't forget how Bill used to tear Page Forty-eight THE BLUE AND GOLD down the held on the kick-off and jump all over the man with the ball. His motto must have been "Carry Un" for he carried everybody on who got in his path. Newton Priddy-"Newt." He didn't weigh over 1-10 pounds but every pound he did weigh was man. As another speed-king, he made a perfect running-mate for Dye. Newt ended his second year in grand style and at the annual Elk's banquet for football players he was elected captain of the 1922 team. Good Luck, Newt. Walter Wellman-"Swede." Ruth says he'5 good-looking. "XYowl" .-Xnyway he is a blame good end. NVhat he lacked in speed he surely made up in reach. lVe all appreciated the way he would reach up in the air, grab the ball, and run for a touchdown. He is one of the few men lost this year. Ted Herge-"Dinty." Ted has played tackle for three years as only a Herge can. He weighs only one hundred and eighty-tive pounds and the big boys are always picking on him, He was always where he was needed, and whoever saw him when he wasn't Smiling. Some college will probably get him next year as its Rock of Gibraltar, for he graduates in May. Merle Bishop. He was rather small in size but was a mountain innspirit. 'For three years he was kicked and battered about by the bigger boys. and hnally his reward came this year. He played end and was one of our fa5test men. He was usually at the bottom of the pile, holding his own. Russell Wellman-"Razzel." Pocket edition to his brother, commonly known as "safe-cracker". Hel Dlayevd quarterback in a highly approved style and is only a soplwlnofe. 50 WC' ll Say, Here 15 a man with a future." Mervin Dye-"Fat," Brother to the other one. Fat is only a freshman and he almost makes t-wo of Paul already. He held down a tackle position and received an injury early in the season which kept him from playing for about three weekg. but he came back 'stronger than ever. He will be back next year, Charles Schuhardt-"Babe" Babe was only a freshman, but to see him play you would think he had majored in football in one of the larger colleges. His H45 pounds of beef made him a formidable man in the center position, and his level-headed passing in crucial moments made him a valuable asset to the team. Four or live years hence we shall all expect to see Babe's name along' with the other stars of XYalter Camp's All American Team. He will probably be with us for three more years. Frederick Leary-"Tub" He was surely a mountain for size and there was no getting around him, either. The first time he showed his smiling' face on the football field. he weighed only 211 pounds. but before the cloge of the 'season he had reduced a few. Leary held down the tackle position in a capable way and, as he is only a Soph, will be a formidable man in years to come. He also will he back next year to help entertain Fostoria. Duane Davis The first night of practice found a new man out for a berth on the team, big, gritty, and a conscientious worker. Although hurt several times during the season, he always managed to come back for more. Bob worked him at the guard position and it is with a great deal of regret that we see him leaving the School this year with his diploma. Dale Sands-"Dago." XN'hen school opened a big, overgrown farmer boy was found in our midst. He had played football the previous two years on the Van Buren high school team, and Bob placed him in the same position on our team. His skill and "Sand" stood us in good stead many times when we were in tight places. On the defensive he Wag a whizz. Many an opposing player wondered what kind of a tractor had hit him when Sands connected with him. He is one of this year's squad who will not return. Edwin Capell-"Ed." After two years on the scrubs he was finally rewarded for his knocks and bumps by a berth on the varsity. Ed was a hardlooking specimen in a football suit and when in a game he surely justified his looks. He is a Junior this year and of course that means he will also be with the squad next year. Page Forty-nine THE BLUE AND GOLD Harold Parsons-"Jack Rabbit." He was about the size of a minute but he could run like the animal he was named after. It was pathetic, the way Jack could leave them all in the dust. Remember that 65 yard run over at Fostoria? XN'ell, don't forget that he is coming back next year to help cut circles around the Red and Black. Theodore Lang-"Lead Foot" Q Bob was responsible for that monicker but it didn't mean anything for Ted's long Slllt was running on muddy fields, which he amply demonstrated at Ada. XYe could all take lessons from him on "How to be Good Natured" for he was always in a good humor regardless of the roughings he used to get, He is another valuable man who is returning next year. William McCarthy-"Bill" For three years he had been out fighting for a position, lwhat else could you expect from an Irishman?J and this season he secured the sweater he justly deserved. He wasn't so big but it will be a long time before We will find another man, big or small, who will fight for Findlay as Bill has. He leaves a gap that will be hard to fill. SUBSTITUTES. ,Toe Ross was a very likely candidate for the end position and, as he is only a freshman this year, we will more than likely hear of him in the future. Edward Misamore was another scrappy end and a punter of no little ability which is demonstrated by his 55 yard punt in the Kenton game. He also will be back next year. Lloyd VVall was another promising aspirant and although he didn't make the team he forced the bigger men to display real ability to beat him out. Kenneth Shultz started the year at center, but was forced out by injuries early in the season. He came back later but it was too late. Richard Hosler made a strong bid for fullback, but he was handicapped in his race with Sands because of his lack of experience. Floyd Bigley was one of those small but mighty men you read about. He only weighed 130 pounds, but whenever there was a commotion, you would usually find him at the bottom of it.

F ull Backs ............., Snyder THE SEASON The second day of school, September Sth, found 52 aspirants for positions on the football team. Bob, in an old jersey and baseball cap, was there to handle the can- didates. His old material consisted of six letter men, four of which were two-year men, and many otheris who had been subs in previous years. The first few weeks were devoted, as Bob said, to knocking the cigarets and Beechnut out of us. ln two weeks we were scrimmaging, with about 30 candidates for the team. VVe were introduced to an entirely new brand of footballg the kind that has made Zuppke's teams what they have been, By the time Bluffton was due, the first squad had simmered down to 24 men, yet the spirit was so strong in the school that all season Wwe had available material for three teams and a large part of the time for four. The Bluffton Game F. H. s.-215 Bluffton-0. Bluffton, with a strong aggregation as the score might indicate, came here for our first game. It was a hard light from start to finish, both teams lighting hard to the final whistle. Our first touchdown of the season came when 'Dye bucked through the line off tackle for three yards and crossed the goal line. It was a hard fought game and showed us our faults. Page Fifty THE BLUE AND GOLD The Lima Game F. H. S.-413 Lima-10. October the first found us over in Linia's back yard to play. lt was a great day for football and of course we won. lt was at this game that the people of Findlay first awakened to the fact that they were represented by a winning team and from then on football spirit ran high. S'ub'stitutes played practically the whole last half and in the last quarter Lima scored a touchdown and dropekick on them. Lang made the longest run of the game when he intercepted a Lima pass and ran 55 yards with perfect interference for a touchdown. ' ' The Ada Game F. H. S.-205 Ada-0. Another week passed by and this time found us at Ada, lt rained until noon and when we arrived on the field. we found a big duck pond in the center. Of course, this put Lang in the ascendancy and we can easily sity that his short sprints of 15 or 20 yards won him first place in the swimming contest. .Xda put up a good fight, but was too light to withstand the onslaughts of our heavier line and the Dye to XYe-llman combination. The Kenton Game F. H. S.-543 Kenton-6. On October 15 Kenton came to look us over after having won her first three games by 50 to 0 scores. The field was just right for playing and we proved it. Kenton threw a scare into us the first thing by working the ball right up to our one yard line and then lost it. They did the same thing a few minutes later and we began to get worried. But the fellows soon buckled down to work and scored touchdown after touchdown until we piled up a big lead. Misamore punted 55 yards, the longest kick of the season, in this game. The Bowling Green Game F. H. S.-333 Bee Gee-0. It was our turn to be entertained. so the following Saturday we journeyed to Bowl- ing Grecn to give them a few lessons in the gentle art of football. lt soon became evident that they were being shown at least, whether they profited by the lesson or not. Parsons and Razzel XYelhnan intercepted Bee Gee P35565 and made long runs for touchdowns and the Dye to XYellnian aerial route was also quite successful. All in all, I would say the lesson was given quite forcefully. The Napoleon Game F. H. S.-343 Napo1eon-7- Napoleon must have been afraid of Us and probably thought they could scare us, for they brought over the biggest man in the school. That didn't stop Dye at all. though, for he soon began running around their big man mountain, scoring two touchdowns in rapid succession: and later he made another sensational open-field-run which terminated only when he had crossed their goal line. This seemed to hurt Napo- leon's feelings for they scored on us immediately afterwards. but it was their last attempt and we had things our own way. The Defiance Game F. H. S.-333 Defiance-0. Every dog has his day, as they say, and this season wc had our day with Defiance. thus evening up the accounts for the defeat they had handed us the previous year. Captain Dye made the longest run of the year when he dodged through a broken field for 64 yards and made a touchdown in the third quarter. Misaniore also broke into the scoring column by catching a forward pass. thrown by R. XYellman, jtlai as he was falling over the goal line. 4 The Fostoria Game F. H. S:-63 Fostoria-13. The games written up in this book are all past history of course but this was one game we still think about and discuss ftnostly Ctlssl. Somehow we didn't feel satisfied by the result of that game and we look forward to next year to prove that something was aniiss, and not with us either. The first half ended O to 0 and we all looked for a tie gameg but in the third and fourth quarters Fostoria scored touchdowns. the last as a result of an alleged onside kick. Then it began to look doubtful whether we Page Fiftyaone THE BLUE AND GOLD would score at all. VVith only a few minutes to play. Bob sent in Jack Parsons, our fleet-footed half. On a spread formation he took the ball and ran 65 yards for our only touchdown of the game. Although we didn't win the game, at least we were able to temporarily render useless a fe.w of their physiognomies. Look out next year, Fostoria! There are rough waters ahead. The Galion Game F. H.S.-213 Galion-O. On November 18, Galion, who had held the North Central championship of Ohio for two years, came over to our sand pile to play for awhile. They had probably the trickiest team we played all year. They played an open running and passing game. They had us on the defense all through the tirst half, but were no match for us in the last period. They had the cleanest bunch of players we encountered this season and we surely appreciated their sportsmanship. The Sandusky Game. F. H.S.-149 Sandusky-7. Turkey day the little team of Sandusky wandered down to try our metal. It was our last game and we were all just a little bit stale. NVe didn't do anything until the 3rd quarter and then we bagged two touchdowns. Sandusky got theirs in the last few minutes of play by a shower of passes. They had a time team but ours was a trifle too heavy for them to withstand. Summary Total Scores Touchdowns Paul Dye ..,......... .,.............. 1 4 XV. VVellman ....... ............. 5 R.

The whole team fought hard but they never coupled basketball and dancing. BLUFFTON December 20 we played our first game with Bluffton. XV. XVellman and Vorhees fought hard at the guard's positions. Alexander, and later Slick, played a hard game at center. Misamore. Leader, and Dye played forwards but could not find the basket, XVe lost 4 to 13. ARCADIA December 22 we played our first home game with Arcadia and lost 12 to 20. This score was somewhat of a surprise but we lost to a good team. ALUMNI This game was played during the holiday vacation, Practically the whole Findlay team was in the game one time or another. Slick held Duncan, the star center of 1920, to no baskets. XYeaver and Kestle of the alumni held a five buck sprint. Stubby won by shooting a foul. XYe lost 12 to 30. BLUFFTON January 6 Bluffton came to Findlay and we won our first return a hard fought game from start to finish. AY. XYellman and Schuhardt guarding game. Sands' dimples made a hit with the girls but his eyes the boys. This was Capt. Priddy's first game. Although he made no the other forward. LIMA CENTRAL game. It was played a great and arms with baskets he fed January 13 we journeyed to Lima Central to try our luck, XYe lost a hard game 13 to ZZ. Alexander made one field goal. "Shoey" also dropped one in from the middle of the fioor, and Priddy played a hard game. Misamore, who was Alexander, fought hard all the time he was in the game. OTTANVA substituted for January 20 Ottawa came over to our city expecting to win another game, but it proved to be our second come back. XYith a new line-up, possibly the best of the year, we ran around Ottawa. john Andrews made two field goals and he was the star feeder, passing the ball to the forwards, who threw it in the ring. Alexander made eight field goals and every other player fought hard. VVe won 36 to 25. BOXYLING GREEN January 27 marks the date of a hard fought game which terminated in us sending Bowling Green home with the small end of a 21 to 14 score. FOS-'TORIA February 3 Fostoria, our honored rivals, cawme over to try our metal, John Andrews at center won the horse-shoe scoring two field goals. Alexander and Misamore scored one. "Shoey" played a good game but he forgot that he was not in a football suit. 'Captain Priddy played his usual good game. XVe were defeated 13 to 32. ARLINGTON February 6 we played a practice game with Arlington, XVe trotted off the fioor with the long end of a 25 to 14 score. LIMA CENTRAL February 10 Lima came to Findlay. Leary, "the Rock of Gibraltar", played his first game at the standing guard position, and Carl Young, a promising freshman, played center for a short period. Alex and Priddy each made one field goal. john Andrews started at Center. Findlay lost 14 to 21. BUXVLING GREEN February 17 we went to Bowling Green where we lost by a score of 11 to 29. There was a new face on the team, M. Dye, who played center. It was surprising how the big boy could get over the fioor CAMBRIDGE February 18 Cambridge came to Findlay expecting to win easily. Both teams made the same number of field goals. but Cambridge dropped in more free throws. Cambridge won l-y a score of 21 to 27. ARLINGTON February 21 we played another practice game with Arlington. John Andrews, center, made three field goals and john Leader one. This game was won easily by a score of 28 to 9. Page Fifty-six THF. BLUE AND GOLD COLUMBUS NORTH February Z4 Columbus sent a fast team here. They could shoot from any place on the floor and they demonstrated it by scoring So points during the ,two halves of the game. They held Findlay to no held goals. The hnal score was 6 to 30. FREMONT March 3 we went to Fremont, expecting to bring home a victory but we were de- feated in the last quarter of the game. Fremont had a fast team who could make baskets from any place on the floor. nevertheless we should have won the game. The final score was l6 to 22. SCOTT March 4 Scott came here with an aggregation that would have graced any college floor. At the end of a fast and furious game they packed their grips and wondering at our nerve. went home with a 4-l to l9 score. FOSTORI.-X March 17 we went to Fostoria to play our last basketball game of the SCHSOH. The team played this game with two regulars out. This was a hard fought game but winning from Fostoria seemed impossible. Leader starred, making most of the points of our team. The final score was Sl to S. THE TEAM Captain Priddy "Husker" Priddy was a fast player and his passes to the forwards after catching the tip offs center were the cause of many of our points. Priddy played running guard in a creditable manner. X'Ve are all glad that he will be with us next year. Paul Dye Modesty makes me leave this place blank. Alexander "Alex" started the season at center but it was soon found out that his realiposition was a forward. In the Ottawa game he made eight baskets. this being the most field goals scored by any individual player in one game. john will he missed next year as he leaves school, dragging behind him a hard-earned diploma. W. Wellman Although "Swede" was only out part of the season he stood in the first class. His level headed playing- accounts tor a large number of the low scores made by opposing teams. Swedes ability proved that it elected he would make one of the best captains in the state. XYe are all very sorry that Swede will not be with us next year. John Andrews Andrews was a little late getting started-but when he did he titted in well at the center position. He scored two of the three held goals made in the Fostoria game. If john and the teachers agree until next year he will be back to play some more as he is only a Freshman. J. Leader "Jack" is a natural basketball player. He isn't very big but he covered the Hoor faster than any man on the team. He is only a junior so "jack" will come back next year and show us how to drop them in from any place on the Hoor. Earl Misamore "Messy" had the knack of dropping them in so we will gladly see him back next year. Byron Vorhees "Barney" was one of the old men on the team. having played under Coach Shull. He played standing guard. but a man with his speed would make the best kind of a running guard. His aggressive playing will be missed next year as this is his senior year. Mervin Dye "Fat" got started rather late but he sure made his brother hustle to keep from losing his reputation entirely. He worked well at center. scoring a number of held goals for our team. He played only the last four games but he will be back next year to take part in all of them as he is only a Freshman. Charles Schuhardt Here is our under-sized friend again. "Babe" had natural ability in dropping in long shots. He sustained an injury which kept him out part of the season. His loss was keenly felt by the whole team. Fred Leary Although Leary is a big man and looks slow he usually managed to step between the man and the basket in time to keep him from shooting. Leary will be back next year which fact we all appreciate. H Page Fitty-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD Slick, Shultz, Young The service of these three men were of great value to the team for they helped make it. Each got in a number of games during the season and they showed the best kind of ability. Cloyce Thomas "Doc" won a letter this year as trainer, This is something Findlay has never had before. Wie all appreciate the fact that we finally have one and when it comes to spirit Doc is right there. He was out every night with the teams, both basketball and football. He also was head cheer leader, although his work as trainer kept him from leading cheers most of the time. If anybody deserves a letter "Doc" Thomas sure does. Frances Eoff "Eoftie's" work as cheer leader is quite commendable. XVhen there was a lapse of spirit she brought the sidelines out of their trance and got them to straining their vocal chords. Frances has what it takes to make a successful cheer leader, a strong person- ality, an attractive appearance. and a strong voice. James Crane "Jimmie" was the partner of Frances when there was cheering to be done. The movements James went through when he was leading looked like one of the sets of daily- dozens, but it brought a noise out of the rooters. Points Made by Each Player Total Goals Fouls Points P.

VVell, Bob Fletcher came along and was informed of the crime that was being committed of wasting so much good base- ball material: so he called a meeting of all the fellows interested in baseball, and told them that he was going to try to form a club. He had the batteries out in March, and by the last of the month the whole team was out. Games were scheduled and one has been played, a practice game with the College. Of course. we won. The game started with Dye and Plotts for the battery, but in the course of the game almost every fellow out had a chance to play. lVith the constant shifting of the team it is impossible to tell which men will hold down the different posi- tions.

In reply her mother answered that although the whole family was sorry that she could not he at home she would he permitted to try her plan. She also mentioned that Donald. Ruth's brother. was bringing his roommate home for the holidays. Ruth was ,lllwl a little sorry that there was no more said ahout her ahsenee from home during Christmas. .Xs Soon as the letter arrived. she had a talk with Norma, who suggesterl instead of this plan that Ruth go home also. But Ruth was more insistent that the plan he earried out although the temptation was great. Pate Filtysiiimg THE BLUE AND GULD "NVQ-ll, if you insist that everything be exactly reversed, then as you wished, you may do your shopping with no regard for cost," said Norma. "Oh! but I've done my shopping. I wish now that I had thought of my plan soonerg then I could have gotten mother something really nice!" "But, Ruth, you are not going to exchange gifts with your family. You and dad and my friends must exchange while 1'll exchange with your family." Norma replied. After plans were fully made, Ruth was not so sure they were going to be exactly satisfactory. However she would go through with it. The day came on which Norma was to depart for her Christmas vacation to be spent at Ruth's home. Ruth accompanied her to the station explaining, reminding, asking Norma to see this person and that, to be sure to tell Mrs. So and So about this, and to be sure to write all about the good times she was sure to have. They reached the station and bought the ticket. Ruth kept up the conversation and as Norma boarded the train, Ruth felt an almost unconquerable desire to jump onto the platform at the rear of the train. She had plenty of time going back to the dormitory to review her chances for fun. First, there was Margy, who was necessarily detained because of contagious sickness in the family: second, the teacher in charge of the dormitory, Miss Ford, was young and a "real sport," third, there was the box from Norn1a's wealthy Philadelphia aunt, and, fourth. the check or "paternal duty" as it was known among the girls. XVhen she reached the dormitory it was time for dinner, when Miss Ford announced that the girls would move into rooms in the left wing of the building for the hoildays so it would be less lonely. So after the meal moving began. Margy and Ruth had rooms together and next to them there were two girls whom the "gang" had considered rather uninteresting-Eloise Dunbal, a fat. lazy, pop-eyed sort of person who thought only of herself, and-chocolates: and Laura Bennett, a shy little brown-bird girl. who "wasn't half bad, only awfully reserved and all." After Margy and Ruth were settled they decided to take a hike to Blakesly, a little village about two miles from the school, and return by car. Miss Ford's permission was secured and she suggested that all the girls go, arriving in time for a hot supper. It was snowingg the air was crisp and invigorating, inviting one to a real hike. The girls dressed warmly, Margy remarking that she thought she'd buckle her golashes for that trip. The company set off briskly across country. Eloise or "El" tthe girls decided it must be for elephant! came into close contact with a snow drift and it warmed the girls up trying to pull her out. just as the lights of the town appeared ahead, Peg Donalson challenged Margy, "I'll race you to that big tree across the stream." "All right," returned Margy. They started toward the narrow stream, someone suggesting that it might lend sport to the race to start at this side and leap across at the beginning, so at a "One, two three- go!" from Miss Ford the two set off. As they jumped across the stream they were about even but as Margy gained the other side, her leg crumpled under her and she sank down upon the bank. XYhen she attempted to rise she realized that her ankle had been slightly sprained. The girls' spirits dropped somewhat, but when Margy had been made com- fortable and the rest had eaten a hot supper, they caught a homegoing car, their spirits rising visibly. The next morning Ruth indulged in a "regular snoozcf' then she spent her time wandering around, bothering everyone. The truth was-she was looking for the box and the "paternal duty" as she now referred to the check. Finally she went to Margy's bed- room and tormented the girl with questions. meditations, by fussing around in an aimless fashion until Margy exclaimed, "If it weren't for this ankle I'd throw you out! Please be a good girl and take the hint." Finally Ruth caught an inspiration by the very tail feathers and departed, leaving Margy to the glamour of a new book. The girls were going to sing carols that evening to bring cheer CF! to some poor shut-ins. You could hear El's shrill soprano rise above the voices of the rest as they were practicing "Peace On Earth, Good XYill to Men!" The singing was punctuated by snatches of popular music and laughter of the girls. In the evening the girls departed, leaving the school "bookie" to entertain Margy by reading from a translation of an ancient masterpiece. About nine-thirty Ruth and El returned: the former had been hit in the eye by a snowball, and the latter was thoroughly winded. They went to Margy's bedroom and were thus hospitably received: "XVhy pick on me? Because I'm in bed?" 'lXX'ell, thanks! No, because you're the only one except "bookie' 'to pick on. "W'ell, if I wasn't planning to save my strength, 1'd throw a pillow at you!" "Come on-I dare you." "Chl begin. I'm resigned but cheerful," sighed Margy. "Tell me all about the excursion. I was hoping some one'd throw cold water on you, but I see you've escaped." "Nothing much happened only a grouchy old man got sore at us and-." "Don't blame him!" "Please refrain from further interruption. Some boys snow-balled us CI'm the casual- Page Sixty THE BLUE AND GOLD ityl, and well, I guess that's about all. Guess I'll retire: El. you can have this chair if you promise not to break it." As Ruth went to sleep she realized that it was Christmas eve and neither the check nor the box had arrived. although during the day and day before she had received gitts from different friends of Norma. g The next morning a special delivery messenger left a letter for Ruth. IYhen opened it was found to contain a fat check and a few words of holiday greetings from Pro- fessor Thompson. In the morning mail there was an aristocratic envelope post-marked Philadelphia, for Ruth. It was from Norma's aunt who begged to be excused for the tardiness of the box she was sending. She was hoping that it would arrive soon, but on account of congested post system. etc. But there was the check anyway, and the gifts from Norma's friends. so Christmas wouldn't be exactly bare anyway. On Christmas evening when Ruth rolled into bed she mentally contrasted the two kinds of Christmas. Several days later a big letter came from Norma. Part of it ran like this: "On Christmas morning we got awake at 5 o'clock and opened our presents before eating breakfast. But that's not the important part. XYhen I arrived Thursday. your dad and the twins were at the station to meet me. I want to tell you that if I had a family like yours I wouldn't want to leave 'em to go to school! And you always raved about Don being such an awful tease-he-'s a tease but perfectly livable at the same time. Love from your happy NORMA. It if In 4 4: The "gang" was again in Margy's room, and all were talking about Christmas. VYho could help it? Had they not just returned to school from Christmas recess? Finally- Girls. about my confession-the one I made in this same room just before Christmas. I've changed my mind: I'm sure I appreciate my family now. Don't ask any questions. I'm not sure I can explain. but Norma helped bring it about. To show our appreciation of what she has done, my family and I ask Norma to return next vacation and share it with me." Then up spoke Ruth. "Come on. let's go out doors. I propose three rousing cheers for Ruth and Normal All right now-Y" -MARY HILTY, '25. THE LIFE OF THE SCHOOL CLOCK I am just an old clock hanging here on the wall. I get so tired hanging here ticking all the time. I've hung here for nearly twenty years. I think I ought to have a pretty good education by now. don't you? VVell. it's most eight o'clock now. Time for some of the early birds to come stroll- ing in. Yes. here comes ,less now. My, she is important! XYhy, the other day 1 heard her complaining to Prof. Finton that she couldn't find a single place quiet enough for her to study. NVhat do you think of that? He went right to work and made every one be real still so she could study. I would just like to know her grade to see the improve- ments she has made this quarter. I know they are splendid. Here comes Mr. Finton. My. but he thinks he's big. but I don't believe he is a bit over five foot-two. Here comes some of the girls who talk about me right to my face. They look at their little wrist-watches as if they were just the thing. I "sassed" them. but they walked off just as if I had never said a word. It is eight-ten now. I think it is time school is called to order. 'xYell. here comes Mr. Harter- My. it's eight-thirty already. I hope they have some special music this morning. I get so tired of my own music, just tick-tock day after day. I like XVednesday for they all sing and the room just rings. It makes me feel real good. I I do hate to see so many leave at eight-forty-five. Those big classes go into those little rooms. The teachers keep classes-forty-tive minutes. I don't see where they find enough to talk about. I guess they store it up over night. The first forty-five minutes there are just a few in the assembly, Some boy threw, a paper which was folded up square and Miss Dauer saw him. Oh! but she did scold him. She sent him out of the room. I guess Mr. Finton talked to him. too, you know he attends to such matters. Miss Kiefer and Miss Jenkins have charge the second period. I saw Miss Kiefer take down some names-usually Mr. Finton calls the names at noon and says, "Miss Kiefer wishes to see the following in room four between twelve-forty and one." Mr. Finton has a terrible time getting them quiet for the announcements. Then they are dismissed. Helen Reimund sits close to me that's why I know her name. She often stays and studies all noon. Some don't even study when they are in the study hall let alone putting in extra time. Some sure do eat their lunches in a hurry for they are back in the assembly by twelve. They all stay in there until Mr. Hutson comes to ring the twenty-minute bell. Page Sixty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD It's a lot of fun to watch the girls run and skip down stairs. They all come strolling in though when the tive-minute bell rings. There aren't so many in the afternoon. So many have the Spring-fever. The room is real quiet for those who have a light touch of it seem to get real sleepy. No one sleeps the sixth period but Russel XYellman. Mr. Finton does keep his eyes open to see what Peg, Erma. ,less and Harriet are doing. I believe they are quite talka- tive, for I think some times he will break that glass. The seventh class are a sleepy bunch. too, and those that don't sleep, talk. Mr. I-Iutson is a real good scout. They all like him pretty well. My! It's three-ten and at four o'clock they all have to vacate and I will be all alone for sixteen hours. I get so lonesome. -H. RUNYAN, '24, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A SCHOOL BOOK No, I am not a De Lux Edition. I'm just a common Modern and Medieval History, school edition, and one of a thousand. But even an object of my insignificance may have an interesting story to tell. I was sold to Alma on September 6, and since that time I have learned much of High School life and the method of studying of many High School pupils. The hrst thing said about me was. "Two dollars and thirty cents?-Outrageous! Ain't it thick?" Then in a few days I experienced a great pam. Alma doubled me back the wrong way. It was the first time I had ever been opened, and crack! The pain was terrible and ever since. my back has been weak. My pages were then decorated with variations of 2-Xlma Harris." For a few weeks I was treated with care and she looked at me more then than she ever has since. Here is a part of a note taken at random. It is written to a Junior down the aisle. My back was badly skinned when I was scooted over the rough Hoor. The note was as follows: "I just washed my hair and positively can't do a thing with it. By the way. can you suggest something for my poem? I can't find anything to rhyme with the last line- "XYhat shall I do, my heart beats fast, My goal is near, my steed shows up-" "I just can't get any farther. Give me your Geometry assignment-Oh! I forgot, you take Solid Geometry. XYell, never mind, it's almost time for the bell. Pray for me in Caesar." It seems so queer that Alma is not satisfied with my pictures. Pius IX now has a long beard and Maria Theresa wears a monocle. A telephone has been placed in I-Iadrian's tomb and Diderot is sporting a squirrel choker. The only comments Alma ever passes on me in class are when the assignments are given. Hurriedly. she scrapes back my leaves and says, "Gee, ain't this the awfullest lesson?" According to a sign carved on my binding, "I am open day and night." It is now vacation and with a sigh of relief Alma has placed me in the attic where I aiu doomed to spend the long, hot summer months. I am among many other books. My nearest neighbor is "The Psychology of Orthodoxy." After a long vacation, I again take my pen in hand. This is September and I am in the possession of Bill, a neighbor boy. Bill says he got me for half price. He has erased all of .-Xlma's decorations and has added a muskrat along the left bank of the Rhine and a coon in a tree near the palace of Versailles. Bill often leaves me lying face downward on his desk all night. I have been bound. slammed and "shut up" all my life, but I am not wholly un- happy. I often wonder why it is that pupils never have a good word for me. -EVELYN DAMON, '24. YOU NEVER CAN TELL TILL YOU TRY The way to succeed is to buckle right in And go to your work with a will.

Regardless of this, the chorus has worked with a remarkable zeal which brings the inevitable-Success. Professor Roberts did all in his power to instruct and guide in the work of this department. His efforts as well as the success he has helped us achieve are highly appreciated not only by our department but by the entire school. Roberta Hanrahan, the pianist, has also given of her unusual musical talent in the effort to attain success and the very highest compliments are to be bestowed on her. The hrst entertainment, which proved to be very commendable, was presented December 9. Each department of music was represented in this miscellaneous pro- gramme: the Blue and Gold Band, the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs. the Boys' Starlight Quartette, and the High School Orchestra. The proceeds went to the Blue and Gold Band, which certainly made a very striking appearance in its blue and Gold uniforms during the football season, and of which the entire school is so proud. Then the second entertainment, March l0, of as high a type of music as was ever presented from the stage of Findlay High School, proved, from a musical stand- point, unusually successful. The first half of the programme consisted of six selections by the chorus. The second half was "The Building of the Ship", a Cantata in two parts. The soloists gave their numbers with exceptional ability and proved them- selves the possessors of unusual musical talent. They were: Mabel Gruber, Ruthanna Davis, Donald F-halter, Dwight De Haven, and Richard Hosler. The Eisteddfod is the next on our programme. lt is the second of a series of musical contests in which Lima, Yan XYert, Bellefontaine, and Findlay are the friendly rivals. The contest is to be held in Findlay this year and the music department has worked strenuously for victory and honor for "Old Findlay High." So, you see the Music Department is a potent factor in the maintenance of our school life and school spirit. -EMILY R. GIBSON.

BLUE AND GOLD BAND At the beginning of this school year when everything looked bright for athletics. a bunch of us fellows thought of organizing a band. Mr. Roberts was told of this and immediately set to work to organize this group of boys to brighten up and Cheer our teams on to victory. Let me tell you, their blowing and beating surely did make hue music and was a great aid to our gridiron winners. Immediately after organization, practice was started and after a few nights the music, heard floating from the auditorium, was enough to make any group of people show enthusiasm and was snappy enough to make the poorest of teams win. Before long it was rumored that suits were to be purchased for this group of pep-creators. Sure enough! ln about two days the band was called together and measured for Capes and caps. XYlien these articles arrived they were a line blue trimmed with a snappy gold. Aside from this line work of aiding in athletics. the band took a prominent part in the Findlay High School Musical, which was given for the purpose of paying for the capes and caps bought for the band. Much credit is due Mr. Roberts for his work in making this organization a success. The personel of the Blue and Gold Band is as follows: MR.

EDIE. Page Seventy THE BLUE AND GOLD THE BLUE AND GOLD THE GIRLS' GLEE CLUB "Girls, that was wonderful singing and I am certainly proud of the way you went through this thing tonight." Now wasn't that encouraging? , The curtain had dropped after our last song and we were waiting. with beaming faces. for Professor Robe-rt's approval. He was rocking backward and forward on his feet, and rubbing his hands together enthusiastically, evidently very much pleased with himself and every one else, when he made the above statement. XVell, dear readers, .ndoubtedly you are wondering what the "thing" in Professor Roberts little speech was. You know we have a band, a good one, too, and in order to show it off, the boys had to have uniforms. Uniforms cost money and money is hard to get unless there is an organization willing to take it upon itself to put a money-making proposition over. This proposition was casually suggested to us. and after we heard the "ifs" and "ands'l of it, we needed no urging but went in to it with full force. Our efforts resulted in a splendid program given on December 9, for the benefit of the Findlay High School Band, and it was certainly a grand success. XYe were complimented by people who really knew good singing when they heard it. XYe are now practicing for the contest which is to be held in Findlay this spring. If we don't carry off an honor this year, it won't be because we didn't put enough life and pep into our practicing. Mr. Roberts is trying his best to help us, and if present conditions foretell anything we have a big chance of winning. There are big futures predicted for individual members of this Glee Club and lifteen years hence may tind some of us Grand Opera stars. But even if we have attained that point, we will look back with longing. and experience the same heart thrills. and weak knees, that we experienced when the curtains were drawn back and we were exposed to a large audience. No!-no matter what high station we may occupy in life, our thoughts will always go back to the good times we had in old F. H. S. when we were members of that Glee Club. -FLORENCE MYERS, ,24.

There is time for everything worth while if you but Xvisli a worth while thing, sh tarry a while with us and learn what has befallen the Iustamere Club throughout the past school year. Urganized but a few years ago, this Club is still in its infancy. It Was, however, born full-fledged out of the desires of students for larger ex- perience, and for the purpose of self-expression. Since then it has grown, prospered, Hourished-a fruitful tree in the fertile soil of the youth of the school. its intluence has expanded as it has fostered new ideas and activities, and it has bt-come an institu- tion in the lives of the students. The reason is subtle, yet obvious. People have thoughts and ideas which they wish to express in order to influence and convince others, to have their rights respected, and to get what they want. To attain such ends requires a knowledge, theoretical and practical, of the ways and wiles of speech, and a sense of security and firmness in the presence of your fellows. Out of this demand has sprung-Just-a-mere Club. A mature idea, a utopian desire, a standard too high for students! Perhaps it seems that way. Truly, if the idea were followed as those of maturer minds are prone to do, the Club would be small and unprogressive, But throughout all its activities the membership has shown itself buoyantly youthful, Perhaps a brief resume of the year will prove the point and give an idea of the Club which no dissertation could do. It is customary that the tirst meeting of the year be an initiation of new members. This year the ceremony was carried out with unwonted zeal and enthusiasm. The Club congregated at -Crane's. Each of the initiates dressed in the oldest and most ragged clothes he could find tor manufacturel. .Xfter a preliminary session with bread and water, they were herded off, formed in a rag line. and chased by automobiles to Alspach's, and thence escorted to llart'sg at each place some seven of the initiates were required to give satisfactory evidence of their talents along the lines of speech and song. The Club set a startling precedent in banqueting the teams when Galion's grid-men came to town to be defeated. They were feasted and entertained at the NY". lt is an expression of advancing civilization to smile on the foe, and argues well for the future. The Christmas meeting was a real expression of the spirit of the time. The pro- gram was one of inspiring ideas, including among other things a review of "The First Christmas Tree." But what was best was the fulfilling of a plan that originated among some of the members, of doing something for others and thus expressing the true spirit of Christmas. Each member brought something that was to be taken to some needy family, and the Dorsey home was a lively place while the packages were being prepared for distribution. Later reports proved our efforts not in vain. 'Valentines Day was another occasion. This time the notable part was an original, hand-made, self-trained play. ln every meeting the spirit has been of that quality that leaves you, after you have departed homeward, with the thought that you have done something. learned something, and enjoyed yourself while doing so. Besides these regular features, the Club has shared with the Commercial Club the honor of producing a good comedy play. It fostered the class and interscholastic debates, taking the business of the latter in its own hands. And now comes the most important and most to-be-remembered of the year's activities-The Annual Banquet. This is always rather a solemn affair in the minds of the graduating members, although they are never dissociated from the Club, for each member seems to have his cup filled brim-full of happiness, No one who was present is ever going to forget the spirit, the thoughts and hopes expressed. Much have l learned and much enjoyed, Since a Justamere I became, And I've willed that through life, in the struggle and strife Of this world. I will cherish that name. -A., '22, Page Seventyvnine THE BLUE AND GOLD P gc Eighty THE BLUE AND GOLD THE SENIOR COMMERCIAL CLUB Are you a member of The Senior Commercial Club? If so you are in one of the best known, oldest, and most energetic Clubs of Findlay High School. lt had a very successful year under the able leadership of our President, Howard Xxiest. and the faculty advisers. It has carried to a successful close every project undertaken. It has solved the problems of its members. and has bettered the condition of its class rooms. The Club had its tirst meeting, at which it organized, the last week of September, After the Constitution was drafted, read and signed, it was a delight to know that hfty- two names had been attached thereto. The next business was an election of otiicers which resulted as follows: President, Howard XYest: Yice-President. Harold Parsons: Secretary, Cleo Johnston: and Treasurer, May Belle Powell. From the very beginning of this years organization, an effort was made to make the Club the most successful one in the history of the school, Business meetings have been held the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 3:15, at which meetings some of the most prominent business men have told of their experiences and the demands of the business world. Good programs were arranged for each of these meetings on which the members appeared at least once during the year. The third Friday night in each month was set aside for a general get-to-gether in the form of a social meeting and all will acclaim these meetings a great success. An active part has been taken by the Club in the activities of the school, by getting behind each, and giving it hearty cooperation, .kt this point we wish to thank all the committees which have so faithfully performed their duties, The Club has its own orchestra. composed of seven members, namely: Florence Agner, piano: Mary Brewer, violin: Don Swisher. violin: Francis Grant. cornet: George XYisner. French horn: Lawrence Harvey. trombone: and Merle Hosler, saxa- phone and director. The Qrchestra has contributed its share to the programs. "The Bizzy Bits." thc Club-paper, made its first appearance this year and has been much appreciated by its members. At one of the business meetings some one suggested getting a banner to repre- sent the Club and. as a result of this suggestion. a beautiful Rose and Gray banner was presented shortly after Christmas. NVhen the question of presenting a play arose we learned that the ,lustamere and Senior Commercial Club, the two leading Clubs of the school, could not give separate plays, So, after discussing the matter, it was decided that a better play could be produced using their combined forces. XYhat was the result? Clne of the best plays everpresented in Findlay High School was given, and the friendly cooperation of the two clubs was permanently established. Rather late in the year some one made a motion that pins be gotten as an emblem of the organization and a committee was chosen to look after the matter. An excellent selection was made. Preparations are now under way for the Annual Commercial Reception which is given in honor of the members of the next ycar's Club. This event brings to an informal close the social activities of the year, although a final picnic is being planned as the May social meeting. VVe wish to heartily thank our faculty advisers, Miss Hudnell. Miss Snow, and Mr. Hutson for their inspiring attitude and suggestions, which helped us set a standard for future Commercial Clubs. We also extend to those who follow, our fondest hopes and best wishes for future success, and may they use our standard as stepping-stones towards nobler and loftier 'd l. 1 ea S -ALFRED HARDS. Page Eighty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD FRENCH CLUB '22 It seems that each year Findlay lligh developes a larger realm of activities for the general welfare of the students. This year it nas made possible to realize a cherished hope of former years in the organization of a French Club, consisting of those students who had been able to attain a percentage of not less than eighty in the Senior French Course. Indeed the fultilhnent of this aspiration was almost more than we had anti- cipated, for this department has generally been sadly neglected as far as social development is concerned. Usually the students who carry this subject expect nothing but the accustomed routine, which. however beneficial, is hardly to be classed with social entertainment. A French Club meeting in the evening with large! opportunity for practical use of the language has many advantages. lt is, indeed. an accomplishment to know the constructive nature of a language, but how much better it is to be able to employ it effectively. XYe have had many opportunities while taking part in French conversation to use our knowledge acquired during two years of study. All of the advantages gained by this organization have not been of the intellectual nature alone. Any social organization is the source of many delightful friendships and the French Club has not been an exception Une of the principal reasons for organizing such a Club was that we might learn the customs and habits of the French. Seeking such knowledge we found material for many interesting, as well as instructive talks. At one of our meetings Mr. Charles Robertson gave a very entertaining illustrated lecture on French customs. The fact that he had passed through varied experiences in each of the places of which he spoke added a delightful personal touch to the interest of his talk. An added advantage of an organization of this type lies in the fact that it brings out the hidden talents of its various members. Never was it realized that Marjorie Kountz had such executive ability until she was made president uf the Club. She has certainly attended to all of her duties splendidly. Ruth Risser has rendered another service in her faithful work as secretary. Juniors, it will be hard to tind some one that can take her place. Hur treasurer is Ulive Bear, who is quite capable of keeping us informed when it is time for our dues. The committees on programs and refresh- ments showed originality and unfailing energy in the well planned evenings which they arranged. The whole program, including business, was conducted in French. The musical numbers, including French songs of a high order, and the papers, original stories and sketches made the evenings both delightful and prolitable. XVe wish to thank the parents of Gladys Needles, llazel Fisher, Marjorie Kountz and Ruth Van Yoorhis for the cordial hospitality of their homes. It would be entirely out of place to bring this history to a close without some word of gratitude and appreciation of Miss Hill, the originator of this organization and our guide and director, Indeed, she deserves it. l-ler enthusiastic interest and her kindly fellowship gave life and zest to our gatherings. tContinued on Page Eighty-seven.J -RUTH V., '22, Page Eighty-two THE BLUE AND GOLD FINDLAY CHAPTER OF HI-Y CLUB Officers l"rc-Qident ....,.,... ,,,. ...... l J on Ggtwtnaii Vice-President. .. ,,....

DEBATING CLUB A number of enthusiastic members uf our class succeeded in organizing thc Debat- ing Club. where we devoted our time to the study of Parlimeiitary Rules and preparation for public appearance.

XXI- studied tire prevention and learned many interesting facts, During the year we secured a niiiving picture machine and gave shows in the .Xssenibly for the instruction and entertainment of our fellow-students, XYe feel that the Club has repaid us for the time spent in the development, and we hope that our successors will protit by it as much as we ourselves have. -TOM F. OUR NFRESI-IIE" ORCHESTRA Our orchestra was late in getting' started but when it started, it was from the beginning. lt contained the following "stars": Mary Hilty, piano. Miss Coates, guitar, Scott Otely, violin. Loraine Edwards, violin. Henry Browne, coruet. Carl Sattler, horn. Glenn Emerson, cornet. Bob Glessner, saxaphone. Rachael Hoffman, drums. Of course, my dear reader, after seeing the names of some of these budding artists, you will not doubt my word concerning its success. H SUCCESS Page Eightyrfive TI-IE BLUE AND GQLD FACULTY INDEX MR. FINTON He has achieved success who lias lived well, laughed often and loved much: who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of children: who has Filled his niche and accom- plished his task: who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty, or failed to express it: who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had: whose life was an inspiration: whose memory will bc a benediction, MISS G. MILLS She, who, forgetting self, makes the object of her life, service, helpfulness, and kindness to others, Finds her whole nature growing and expanding, herself becoming large-hearted, magnanimous, kind, sympathetic, joyous and happyg her life becoming rich and beautiful. MR. HARTER Sae true his heart, sae smooth his speech, His breath like cauler air, His very. foot has music in't As he comes up the stair. MISS LITTLETON 'Tis pleasing to be schooled in a strange tongue By female lips and eyes-that is. I mean When both the teacher and the taught are young. MISS BAKER If any love of mine May make a life the sweeter, If any little care of mine May make a friend's the Heeter. If any lift of mine may ease The burden of another, God give me love and care and strength To help my toiling brother. MR. LEE To him who in the love of nature Holds communion with her visible forms, She speaks a various language. MISS CULLER We may live without poetry, music and art: We may live without conscience, and live without hearty We may live without friends, We may live without books: But civilized men cannot live without cooks. MR. C. H. HAVERFIELD In battle or business, Whatever the game, In teaching or love, It's ever the same. In your struggle for power, Or scramble for pelf, Let this be your motto: "Rely on yourself." MISS LENA KIEFER . Set yourself earnestly to do what you are made to do. and then set yourself earnestly to do it: and the loftier your purpcee is, the more sure you will be to make the world richer with every enrichment of yourself. MISS SNOW For she was jus' the quiet kind Whose natures never vary, Like streams that keep a summer mind- Snow-hid in january. MR. J. E. BOWMAN ' Be ashamed to catch yourself idle, Diligence is the mother of Good Luck. Mlss JENKINS To those who know thee not, No words can paint, To those that know thee, MISS HILL Howe'er it be, it seems to me. 'Tis only noble to be good. Kind hearts are more than coronets And simple faith, than Norman blood. MR. L. E. WALTERS , If you want knowledge, you must toil for it: if food, you must toil for it, and if pleasure, you must toil for it, Toil is the law. Pleasure comes through toil, and not by self-indulgence and indolence. When one gets to love work, his life is a happy one. MISS HUDNELL Her object of true education is to make the pupils not merely do the right things, but enjoy them: not merely industrious, but love industry, not merely learned, but to love knowledge. MR. D. D. HUTSON To be content with small means-to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich-to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart and to bear all cheerfully. This is my symphony. Know all words are faint. Page Five THE BLUE AND GOLD XYith Mary llilty at the piano, we had the foundation of our wonderful band of ear-busters. You may think it strange. but when she was asked if she could practice the music at home, she said. "lt wonldn't do any goricl, because you have to get use-d to this piano at school before you can play it." So. you see, it is not so easy as it looks, and we cannot give Mary too much credit for her playing. Another big mainstay of our orchestra was Miss Coates with her guitar. Please consider that she has live classes a day. but after school she is as happy and enthusiastic as anyone. Scott Otely and Loraine Edwards played the "riddles", which added much to our so-called beautiful strains of music. And with "Brownie" and "Red" playing' their cornets, you couldn't fail to think of what would happen should they leave us. Patient "Satty" and Rachael musn't be left out either, for they supported us very well in our efforts to gain success. As you must realize, I cannot say anything for or against myself. tXYe say that Bob is a wonder with his "sax". He-'s as good as Don Corbin any dayl. Dear reader, let your imagination play on what I didn't. and call it a day. -JAJY, '25 -BO B, '25. LINCOLN BOYS' TEAM Rah! Rah! Lincoln Freshmen 1 ' Boys' Basket Ball Team.

Too much praise cannot be given Mr. Fletcher for his untiring efforts. Only once has this team known defeat. The Strotheri vanquished them by a very close score. After out-classing the XYashingtons twice- l7-6, 16-2, the Sophomores. coached by Mr. Shull, 14-6, this team holds the champion- ship of the Findlay High School Girls' Teams. The last games played on the "Y" floor, March ll. was pronounced the most spectacular girls' game that any fan present had ever witnessed. Next year out-of-town games will be played and their prospects of victory are very bright.

BOWLING GREEN-FINDLAY DEBATE lffontinued from Page Seventy-tivej is a workable plan, in that it is both timely and practical: 121 lt is a powerful economic factor for it will save large sums of money now used for war equipment and will save nations from bankruptcy: M55 lt will divert human energy from destructive to con- structive principles and by so doing will bring about the furtherance of education and Christianity. V Bowling Green argued: That reduction of arms is not the mogt potent factor: C15 Because arms are weapons or symptoms of war and not the direct cause: UCB So long as nations are covetous limitations of arms will cause rather than check war: lfil They produced a plan for an international court. Findlay's loyal supporters held their breaths while the chairman, Chester Pendle- ton, read the decigions of the judges, XVild whoops and cheering came from the vocal cords of the throng when the decision was given two to one in favor of Findlay. Much praise should be given to Mr. Matteson, Miss Baker, Mr. llutson, Mr. Harter and Mr. Fletcher for their untiring work with the team. Along with the debaters this year there was a musical contest. llowling Green Sent a vocalist and a pianist. Don Shafer with his beautiful mellow tones carried oh' the honors in the vocal contest. Betty Brickman rendered a beautiful version of Paderewski's Minuet, but was unable to secure the decision, -b, B. A., '23. FOSTORIA-FINDLAY DEBATE Cl'nntinue4l from Page Seventy-six.J Fostoria knocked down some of our points but they offered no plan and said so little that was definite that it gave us little chance in rebuttal. The Fostoria speakers were polished and well trained but they were unnatural for the most part and seemed to sway the two judges by volume rather than logic. Un the other hand Findlay's debaterg showed more poise and naturalness. VVe want to thank Miss Baker for her untiring efforts and patience in coaching the debates against great odds, XYe also appreciate the eo-operation of the other members of the faculty in making it possible for our team to make a good showing in spite of the fact that they did not receive the decision. L. H., '22, FRENCH CLUB '22 lfontinued from Page Eighty-two.j XVe hope that. after the Juniors have seen what the French Club has done by the banquet which was given them, that they will be inspired tri take up the work of the Club where it is and enlarge it and make it a permanent organization. A gathering which combines congenial companionship with original effort and practical instruction in one of the most popular languages of the day will surely result in permanent and growing usefulness. -RUTH VAN VQORHIS.

THE CLASSICAL CLUB The XYashington school is a leader of schools, XYashington's leader is the Classical Club. There will be a magnus clamor when the other clubs audient this, sed we know what we are talking about. The Classical Club semper brings in the tirst hundred percent Blue and Gold sub- scription and this club was true to tradition. Last October we planned a party. lYe did not have it until Christmas. but in spite of this it was a maximus success. The club was exceedingly busy last winter making merits Cet demeritsj. XYe polish- ed the furniture tam bene that it shone as it never had in its vita. Every dusty, neglected pictura in the building trembled cum joy when it saw us coming for it knew our intentions. lVe started a tlower box in the English room et tixed every rem we laid manus on. The others never missed an opportunity to tell us our spes were in vain. How- ever we showed the greatest increase in merits and won second place in the merit contest. The student body itself elected all its officers for the second semester from our club. Miss Kuenzli, our loyal faculty advisor, is helping us plan a Latin entertainment to be given in April, Committees have been appointed for a play, posters, and music. Our president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer are Lawrence Goodman. Marilynn Bright, Bernadine Giblin, and Thelma Yerger, The 'Classical Club "Vires acquirit eundo" as records show. so we know it has a promising future. -MIRIAM ROLLER.

That is the reason our club is studying you. At the beginning of the school year, we were so enthused over merits and demerits, that there was little time put on the study of stars, Since we were victorious and receivedthe honor of being the winners, we have become very interested in the study of planets and constellations. The tirst study meeting was held at the XYashington School, on February 9th. It was here that we began increasing our knowledge by studying Astronomy. Hur facility advisor, Miss Kjefter, astonished us with interesting stories of the heavenly body.

These subjects were Page Eighty-nine THE BLUE AND GOLD discussed at our meetings, which were held at the school once a month, and ex- periments were made to illustrate the discussions.

THE GIRLS' VOCATIONAL GROUP "Who is ahead?" HVVhy the Girls, Vocational Group". "First in everythingu, that was their motto. The group was organized at the llrst of the year with Miss Gilbert as the faculty advisor. Miss Gilbert did very much toward making the group work interesting, for the girls. The members of the group consisted of Home Economics girls only. The purpose of the group was to make things that girls like to make, such as favors and beads. A play was given near the end of the term, in cooperation with the nutrition class. An elaborate style show was given, in which many beautiful gowns were shown to the spell-bound Freshmen. The officers were: President, Genevieve Dunn: Vice-President, Gladys Marquet: Secretary. Pauline Krauss: and Student Council Representative, Mae Miller. -MONTEZ DRAY. GIRLS' GLEE CLUB "Listenl Wlho is singing?" "XVhy the NVashington High School Glee Club, of Course". That's what they all say. The best singers enlisted and were called to the front immediately. The Fresh- man class had the "rare" pleasure of hearing them sing once or twice, but the Glee Club usually sang to larger audiences. The club sang at several churches during the term. and at the Parent-Teacher meetings. The officers of the club were: President and Leader, Montez Dray: Vice-President, Genevieve Swartzl Secretary, Marjorie Clark. -MONTEZ DRAY -GENEVIEVE SVVARTZ.

Virginia Sharp, Left Guard. The subs. were: Genevieve Swartz, Clarabelle Pennington and Mary Lineham. Routzon was chosen captain at the beginning of the season, she starred in almost every game. Dray, the high jumper, was very good at stopping the ball. Page Ninety THE BLUE AND GGLD Marquet was small but mighty, she seldom missed her aim when shooting for a basket. Dietsch and Sharp, always played a steady game. VVhen the subs. were called upon to play, you could rely upon them in every way possible to help win. BASKET BALL Right Forward-J. Shortlidge Left Forward-J. Andrews Center-N. Sheller Right Guard-C. Grotly. Left Forward-F. Drais Grotly, CCaptainJ. Grotly was a bear at standing guard and lie would break up the team work of his opponents time and again and return the ball 11,1 our territory., CManagerj. Frank played a wonderful game at running guard and could always be relied upon for at least one basket a game. Andrews John played a steady game at forward and was all over the tloor at once. It crippled the team badly when the F. H. S. claimed him because he always kept the players full of pep. Sheller Sheller was the only man to play in all of the games scheduled. XYhen it came to making baskets he was there at both long and short range. Shortlidge Shortlidge played a good game at forward and was Ll dead shot at long and short range. Outside of Andrews he was probably the best forward on the team. Second Team Men The second team men were also clever playersand mixed in nearly all of the games. They are as follows: Earl Krouse.
