li lil CIE ANU GO LD SENIOR CLASS PLAY The Senior Class of 1923 with the assistance of ther advisors, Mr. Kinley, Miss Littleton, and Miss Bright, the instructor in rlraniatics, chose as their class play "The Copperhead." This carried on the custom started some years ago of giving an annual Senior Class play to close the happy High School activities. "The Copperhead" is a well known drania hy Augustus Thomas who gained his idea from Hon. Frederick Landis' hook, "The Glory of His Country." The drama is in two epoehs. The tirst epoch is dnrng the Civil XYar, It takes place in a sniall Illinois village. It deals with the southern synipathizers who have formed the Copperheads, a society to aid the South. Milt Shanks is the leader. His wife and son are very humiliated over this. lt goes on to show the works of this society. The second epoch is forty years later. Milt Shanks is now living with his grand- daughter. His wife and son have died. It is discovered here that Shanks was a northern spy and not a real Copperhead, The caste worked hard and with the instructors endeavored to produce a play of high standard. The caste was as follows: Joey .............................. Grandma Perle-y..,.... Ma Shanks ....,,... Captain Hardy ...... Milt Shanks ....... Mrs. Bates ........ Sue Perley ........

THE BLUE AND GO "THE CHARM SCHOOL" The Junior Class began its career in Draniatics on lleceinbtr S, when "The Cliarni School" was presented. ln producing this play the ,luniors established a name for them- selves, It was one of the most successful plays ever given by a class at Findlay High School and it was repeated for the lvenetit of the City Federation of XYonien's Clubs on January 19. Under the supervision of Miss Baker, Miss -leukins and Mr. Hutson the Cast received hue coaching. lYe must not forget Mr. Miller who helped to make it a success: nor Miss Bright, who took charge after Miss Baker left.

X 5, - i THE BLUE AND GOLD THANKSGIVING RHETORICALS Everyone was excited and happy for Thanksgiving was only a few days off. One evening the ,lustamere Club was called together and informed that the members were to put on the rhetoricals. Excitement heightened while happiness waned for nobody cared to do anything extemporaneously for such an occasion. However a few of the most ingenious met and decided to do away with the old custom of plays and utilize some classroom material. No Thanksgiving program is complete without the Presidents Proclamation so Fred Leary was selected to read the message to the student body. Following this the Rainbow Quartet, composed of Rudolph Amsler, Cecil Kuhn, Dick Hosler and Don Corbin, sang several very excellent numbers. Since the Senior ,lustameres had been studying orations Ruth Fuller was selected to present one. She chose for the subject "XYe Give Thanks" and it was fully agreed upon that it was well handled. Concluding this the Quartet sang another very amusing selection. The next thing on the program proved to be a debate, 'iResolved: That United States Should Cancel the European VVar Debt." The affirmative team was composed of Nelson Rozelle, XVade Knight, Selma Alexander and Frances Holligerg the negative, of Dick Oswald, Betty Brickman. Evelyn Damon and Audrey Barkalow, The discussion was very beneficial since it is on one of the most vital questions of today. VVhile wait- ing for the judge's decision, which proved to be unanimously for the Negative, Dorothy Yerger in costume gave a very entertaining reading, "Grandmother's Story." This concluded our shortsnotice program, the success of which was due to Miss Bakers efforts and the cooperation of all the Club members. FRANCES HOLLIGER, 223. SOPHOMORE RHETORICALS The most important event in the course of the past year for the Sophomore Class was the Christmas Rhetoricals. Anticipation of the Christmas Holidays incited the spirit of Christmas and the program was carried out jubilantly in accordance with the season. Laurence Goodman, as chairman, managed very successfully. The first part of the program was given by members of the class who are especially talented along var'ous lines. The program was as follows: Piano Solo ,.........................-..-.........-----,A.. 4-.. ,---------.----------.---A---- 4s,"-,----s---'4s.-- A I 3 fy Hllfy Reading ,---A.Y,,,,,. ,,,,,,,.,.,,,.,., ,,,,,,,.,...,,..,.,,,,,,,,,,,,.,.,......

A social event for the Sophomore classes of the preceding years was unheard of. That speaks for itself, doesn t'1t, members of the Class of 25? Everything was splendid especially the eatsg the sizzling hot wemers in fresh buns, crisp sour pickles that made your blood run clold and chills go up and down vour back, delicious home-made doughnuts and the red Juicy apples will not soon be forgotten. The boys played football in the adjoining held, the girls roamed through the woods and all together we had a good time playing three-deep. ' Page Ninety-tour THE BLUE AND GOLD Right here we need to thank the refreshment committee composed of Rachel Hay- ward, Pauline Krauss and Trolla Cramer for their untiring efforts to make the occasion a success. also all the members of the faculty, especially Miss jenkins and Miss Gerlaugh. The memibers of the general committee were Alice Love, Trolla Cramer, Mary XYhalen, Mary Brickman, Rachel Hayward, Martha Haley, Archie Johnston, Earl Fout. Raymond Collingwood and James Parker. The collectors were Mary XN'halen, Martha Haley. Laurence Goodman and James Parker. -MARTHA H., '25 ORCHESTRA PARTY One of the pleasantest social gatherings was held by the High School Orchestra, XVednesday evening, March Zl, at the home of the president, Don Corbin, of East Lin- coln Street. The party was Oriental in its make-up and the guests came dressed in costumes suitable for the occasion. The rooms were beautifully decorated with Japanese lanterns. Miss Genevieve Dunn gave a very fine reading after which games and various amuse- ments took place. One feature of the gayety was a contest which was won by Delite Ebersole. Mary Hilty took first honors in the second contest. The crowning event of the evening was a typical chop suey supper. ' Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Roberts were guests. -DON CORHIN. JUSTAMERE BANQUET The human mind is the most wonderful thing in the world. Hy imagination it ad- vances civilization, and by memory it cherishes the past. Memory brings back most clear- ly those events that make the most impression at the time of occurrence. In the years to come as a Justamere alumnus looks back over his school career, there will be silhouetted against the setting sun of his school days one giant event. That giant will be the justa- mere Banquet at the Elks' Club, April the Third in the year of our Lord Nineteen Hun- dred and Twenty-three. As the artist of his memorv makes the first stroke of the brush he will see before him a gorgeously decorated hall and-O such a feast! The second stroke will create living characters-Iustamcre alumni, teachers, and Justameres. They move: they begin to chat. One rises and seems to be bidding the guests welcome, One slowly advances to the platform and wafts up enchanting strains of music. Soon another does likewise. In the chain of mental pictures he will probably see-yea, even hear through three inter- vening years a sweet piano solo. This chain of remembrances will be superseded by one in which probably ten persons gravely arise and do justice to their training in Effective Speaking. These speakers seem to have much beneficial philosophy which they present just as Daniel W'ebster would have presented it. The speakers Outline the fundamentals of living, discuss fashions? discourse on such technical points of etiquette as "Am I Intrudingf' "XVhere Do XYL' Go From Here?" Such a momentous question to ask and no answer. A Having feasted on such luxuriant reinembrances: his old Justamere interest and curiosity being at its highest pitch it will be a miracle if this alumnus doesn't hunt up his carefully preserved program to dwell once more on that mental feast or to read the names of f1'iends written therein. -XVADE KNIGHT, '23, THE SENIOR COMMERCIAL CLUB BANQUET The members of the 192.3 Senior Commercial Club held their animal entertainment in the form of a banquet on April 27 at the K, of P. hall, Number SS. They had as their guests the Juniors, or the Commercial Club of 'Z-l and the mem- bers of the alumni and faculty that found it possible to be present. The tables were made very attractive with the grey baskets which were filled deep with carnations and roses, thus carrying out the club colors, Also to add to the prettily arranged tables were the tall rose candles which were kept burning all during the deli- cious three-course dinner. Then too. an orchestra supplied music during the dinner hour. Immediately following the banquet an "Address of l,VClCO1I16N was given by the club president, Ray Beard, which was answered in the form of a "Response" by Doris Stall, a member of the Junior Commercial Department. Following this the alumni was repre- sented by a vocal solo sung by Donald Shaffer in his usual pleasing manner. Bert Gunderman gave an interesting sales talk which was quite a surprise and treat for all. Doris Goodman played a piano solo entitled "Polonaise Militairreu which all present thoroughly enjoyed. After this, an unusually interesting talk on "Associations" was given by Mr. C. H. Smith. Miss Dauer represented the faculty when she sang "Oh, For Page Ninety-five THE BLUE AND GOLD a Day of Spring" by Andrews. Mr. J. P, Sutton emphasized the importance of Sales- manship in a short but splendid talk. Next, Margaret Renninger gave a very entertain- ing talk on "Visions" which held the attention of all. Last upon the program was the Senior Commercial Club Farewell Song. This did not, however, conclude the fun of the evening for a series of entertaining games were played in which all participated. The success of the 1923 banquet was due first of all to Miss Hudnell, advisor of the club. and a committee composed of Ray Beard, Dorothy Cole, Cecil Kuhn, Margaret Renninger and Marian Collingwood. Also the efforts of the following club members added to the success of the evening, Francis Baker, Norman Cooper, Everett Altman. Mildred Malcolm, Harold Doty, Harold Henderson. Eloise Gorden, Cleo Dickes, Naomi Tussing and Do-ris Lytle. LE BANQUET DU CERCLE FRANCAIS May 4th and the eve of the French Club banquet! One hundred junior guests. active members, and alumni met at the First M. E. Church for the first formal banquet of our French Club. Upon arriving we were ushered into a dining room gaily decorated in French blue and scarlet, our club colors, and even the tables were arranged in an F shape. Sophomore girls from the Domestic Science department served us a sumptuous chicken dinner and the high school orchestra provided music for the occasion. In spite of the attraction of the dinner and music we were not reluctant to cease our efforts in mastication when the symposiarque, Richard Oswald, suggested that we pro- ceed to the program. It was a most excellent program, consisting of music, responses to French proverbs, and a club prophecy. Here it is: Monsieur Le Symposiarque, Richard Oswald PROGRAMME 1.

Some of us had that pleas- ure on May 9, when we met in the basement of the First M. E. Church, where the first banquet of the first Spanish Club that Findlay High School has ever boasted, was held. There we had our first introduction to real Spanish food, served by Spanish maidens, gay in their bright sashes of red and gold and the highly colored roses which adorned their hair. After the "banqueta" a very interesting program was given as follows: "Sea el Bienvenidadu by Senor Frank Gillespieg "Respuesta" by Senor Ferrell Crawford: "Solo del Piano-LaPoloma" by Senorita Treva Mitchell, "Espana y Los Costumbresn by Senorita Roa Phillipsg "solo del Cornete" by Senor Don Swisher: "El Doble Robo" by las Senoritas Sarah Barkimer y Marian Collingwood, y el Senor Russell Snyder. For a fitting close everyone present sang "America" as it is sung by the natives on the Spanish- speaking countries. FINDLAY-LIMA DEBATE tfontinued from Page Sixtyasevenj In the constructive speeches Findlay's broadsides nearly destroyed the argument of the Negative. In the rebuttal what was left of Lima's logic was refuted easily. Louis Pierce of Lima, the last speaker in rebuttal made a valiant effort to bring victory out of defeat, but was unable to effectively pierce Findlay's impregnable defense built during weeks of hard and earnest work. Too much praise cannot be given to Mr. Matteson, Mr. Gower and Miss Bright for their long and hard work in developing inexperienced debaters. That F. H. S. won by a unanimous vote both here and at Bowling Green can be attributed to our coaches' un- tiring efforts. -T. CUNNINGHAM, '24, Page Ninety-'six THE BLUE AND GOLD JUNIOR-SENIOR RECEPTION On the pleasant evening of May llth, 1923, about one hundred and fifty members of the Junior and Senior classes donned their Sunday-go-to-meeting uniforms, their gum boots, overshoes. raincoats and golashes. and amid the pleasing spring showers found their way to the K. of P, No. 85 hall. Here various personages belonging to Seniors, Juniors, and Faculty welcomed everybody who wished welcome, The rooms were prettily decorated with colors of the Seniors, also colors of the Juniors. Wfhen everybody was planted comfortably within the hall, the following pro- gram was presented: The program was seemingly thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests, hosts and par- takers. Then they ate, and they even had Sophomores to serve them. To this it is agreed everybody partook heartily. After the refreshments. dancing in the ballroom and games in the remaining rooms were enjoyed. XYhen the chimes rang twelve times with a carol gay. everybody left the hall for unknown parts, not even lamenting the fact that there was no elevator. The Junior-Senior reception had been looked forward to with pleasure, and it was a pleasure. ATHLETIC BANQUET At the close of the football season, following the Aurora game. the local Elks ten- dered a banquet to members of the Aurora and Findlay teams . Three hundred local fans and football enthusiasts attended. After an appetizing meal during which various guests demonstrated their ability as singers and two popular entertainers of Toledo added a great deal to the amusement of those present. the real program of the evening began. Col. Ralph D. Cole, one of the city's prominent men, acted as toastmaster, and in his clever way introduced the different speakers of the evening in a very pleasing manner. Many people were called upon to talk, including Robert Fletcher and Ralph Fletcher, the coaches of the two teams, the two captains, Prof. Hamilton of Findlay College, and the principals of the two High Schools. The principal speaker of the evening was Dr. ,lack XYilce, head coach of Ohio State University. He made a line address, emphasizing clean sportsmanship and the need for loyalty to our own State University. Following Mr. XVilce's inspiring talk the banquet broke up and the members of the Findlay team elected Mervin Dye captain for 1923. Too much cannot be said in the way of appreciation for the wonderful way in which the Elks entertained the team. Everything was perfect and it was a fitting demonstra- tion of the loyalty and enthusiasm of Findlay to its High School team. THE SECOND PLACE MAN He never quite made the top. There was always the Hash which came Out of the dark at last to ruin his tight for fame: There was always the better man to pass him in every race, And the best that he ever did was to finish in second place. He was honest and brave and clean and he gave his soul to the fight. He tried for the far-Hung goal, but he never could make it, quiteg He never gave up in despair, never whined with the scorn in his face, But the best that he ever did was to finish in second place. He played on the second team, the buffer for stronger men, He was good for the practice held, but not for the battle, when The game was the thing at stake and swift and hard was the pace, Then always he sat and watched the better man in his place. He fell just short of the mark and never we knew just why, Yet never he sulked in his tent and never he ceased to try. And I say for him and his clan, there is no greater courage than this: To give your best to the world, to strive for a goal-and miss. -JOHN ROUTZON, '19, Page Ninety-seven THE BLUE AND GOLD ,. .-V.,, V. , A J' ' "" 3 . . - . : A X, .

H. S. Uwing to our late start we did not make much of a showing this year. lYe were handicapped by not having a coach all year and that means a serious detriment. WT played only four or hve games and lost them all, That sounds very clisconraging for NV. H. S. lint just wait until next year. XYe had pep and enthusiasm, and were supported hy the school in all our games. The student lmody came to our games, and put energy into us by their cheering. Most all of the girls were chosen to play on the F. H. team. That's an honor! Genevieve Routzon Miss Routzon acted as Ollf main forward. She made the game "snappy" and the other side marvelled at her skill, and so did we. Captain Pearl Dorsey Miss Dorsey was our captain and she made a dandy one, too. All the players were ready to follow her. She was original in her ways, and everyone wondered who used their wonderful talent in making up our signs and yells. If there is any information wanted, ask at the XY. H. S. and yon will hnd out some wonderful things about Bliss Dorsey. Katherine Moorehead Miss Moore-head had the hall trained or else it was her hands. They act just like a magnet that draws everything to it. XV. H. S. did the whistling and yelling, and the ball went right into her hands. That is magic, and as good as Ht-nry's magic show. XNe hope she will play for F. H. S. .next year, and make them win with the cooperation of the rest. Mary Leary Miss Leary was the main stay of our team. She was always on the job when wanted. One fact that nature has bestowed upon Mary is that she is a perfect little jumper. No Page Ninety-nine O F1 Z P-3 RJ D F' HDIH DS 'IOOH 1 A vii" , V 4 df 'D . ' Pio ,, 'iii .

A .rn s THE BLUE AND GOLD one could quite catch up with her when catching the ball. It would never pass her hands. Kathryn Giblin Miss Giblin was good in keeping her opponent, and was always ready to catch the ball whenever she could. The student body was very sorry when she left W. H. S. She was one of our best and loyal players. The whole school has missed her and so has the teachers. But we can remember her wonderful playing on our basketball team. Cora Otley Miss Otley was little, but mighty. She always played a steady game. VVhen we played boys' rules, she was always placed as running guard. Her tiny feet came Hitting around in front of her opponent, and then the ball went back to the forward to send to the basket. Our Subs We could always depend upon our subs.

Coach Evans Everything that we accomplished we owe to our coach. He has always been loyal to 'XVashington School. In this space we wish to show our appreciation for his work. We wish him success. Captain Rench As a pivot man he was hard to beat. He counted much in the team work and figured good in the scoring. Shortledge P Shortledge was the main. stay on the team. His outstanding feature was to cage baskets. He was the chief point getter and a dead shot on fouls. Martin Martin was a steady man and a fine shot. He always caged a basket when a point was needed to win. He teamed well with Shortledge. Schneider As running guard he played a good game. His guarding was good and always kept his man to a low score. K. Learey Learey was undoubtedly the best defensive man on the team. He had a great ability to get the ball off of the backboard and return it to our territory. D. Perlcins Don was a good guard and played well all season. He was our "fighting guard." L. Perkins Due to his lightness. he did not play much. But when he played, he played with vim. He played well with M. Learey. M. Learey M. Learey was handicapped by his size. He is small but mighty. VVhen he got hold of the ball you might as well chalk up a basket. C. Hackenberger Hackenberger played a mighty good game all season as center. He counted for much in team-work and guarding. Firestone Firestone was a good running guard, always fighting for the ball and sticking to his 111311. The Subs Townsend. Ritter, Gohlke and Leach deserve honorable mention. They gave the lirst team a mighty hard race for their places. Page One Hundred -KARL LEAREY. THE BLUE AND GOLD w. H. s. ORGANIZATIONS The central organization of 'XVashington High School is the Student Council, com- prised of the officers of the student body and a representative from each club. This organization meets at regular intervals to discuss matters of interest to the student body. The Council takes care of such matters as ticket-selling, good manners, campaigns and Blue and Gold subscriptions. It has arranged for a continuous contest among the clubs, a given number of points going to the club, winning out in banking, ticket-selling, etc. The clubs were granted charters by the Council during the first part of the year. The chartered clubs are the Travel. Classical, T. N.T. or Scientific. Dramatic, Millin- ery and Radio. The unchartered clubs, which take members from the chartered clubs. are the Athletic Association and the Girls' Glee Club. The chartered clubs meet bi-monthly for a forty-live minute session. The Travel Group takes imaginary trips to all parts of the globe. All expenses are paid by Miss Kieffer, faculty advisor. The Classical Club devotes its time to the study of Roman Life and Art and in the preparation of a Latin play. Miss Kuenzli is faculty advisor. Under the able direction of Miss Miles, the Peppy Dramatizers have presented some very good programs. The T. N. T. makes experiments and scientific research, on a small scale. Miss Jacobs helps them to live up to their name. The Millinery Girls supplied Findlay with Easter bonnets. Miss Gilbert lends a helping hand. The Radio Club gathers news from far and wide and are amateurs. Ask Mr. Hybarger. It is to the Athletic Club that the XY. H. S. basketball teams owe their up-keep. It has stood behind them in all games. The Glee Club, also under the direction of Miss Miles, has given many pleasing vocal numbers and has been remarked upon as a well balanced chorus. These clubs tend to promote school and club loyalty and have proven themselves to be the most successful extra curricular activities ever taken up by XV. H. S. Wie are justly proud of our splendidly organized clubs. -ALFRED.-X REAMES. THE STUDENT COUNCIL Election Day! lYhat an exciting time for everybody. lYhy? XYe all want our favorites to represent us and do the best of their ability for us. At last our nerves are quieted and we are our normal selves again when we hear the reports: President, Harold Koontz: vice-president, Pearl Dorseyg secretary, Dorothy VViseley. The Student Council governs and leads us. They have done many fine things for us. The most important is the arranging of a contest between the different clubs on a good manner program. The training of good manners is one of the finest things a Freshman can accomplish. The second semester the following officers were elected: President. Harold Koontz: vice-president, 'XValter Renchg secretary, Mildred Xlfhipple. They decided to give a cer- tain number of points to each club bringing in an outside speaker to talk to the student body. -MILDRED VVHIPPLE. NIGHT SCHOOL Listen! VVell, what is this? lVhy. yes. we are talking about the greatest event of the year, when we all trudged to the school house through the downpour of rain. A special invitation had been given to every mother, father, aunt, uncle, cousin and friend in the city. School began at six forty-five o'clock. the hour which would accommodate everyone. All of the teachers and pupils responded to the call of night school. Both did double duty that day. indicative of the Washington High School Spirit. The Travel Group conducted chapel. The subject was on "Some of the Sidelights from the Passion Play of Oberammergauf' The first, second, fifth and sixth periods of the day recited. The purpose in having this event was to show the regular routine of work, such as the passing of classes fwhich tangles somej and the regular class work. lNe hope that in the future not only the Xliashington High School students will follow our example, but all of the public schools of Findlay.

X aww IN MEMORIAM The class of '26 was called upon to part with one of its number on March 22, 1923, when Gerald Baldwin, who enrolled with us as a Freshman at the opening of the school year, was promoted to the School beyond the skies. Gerald was an ambitious student. He commanded the respect of his teachers and schoolmates, all of whom keenly felt the loss they have sustained in his death. Long life was not given to Gerald, but during the short time he lived among us his studious habits, his courteous manners, and his consideration for others marked him as an exemplary student and his memory will long live in the hearts of those who knew him.

The people do not set in one place or have a place bought and not have dilferent place to set, but they all set down where they want to unless the seat is taken. They sing and go to different class rooms and after that they hear the sermon, and go home however they came. If they came in an automobile, they go home in it. lf they walked, why they walk unless they ride. CLASS WILL This being the last will and testament of the Freshmen Class of '23 we do hereby bequeath, grant and convey to .our successors to-wit: The prospective Freshmen Class both real and imaginary properties. consisting of: One antiquated clock, which with little help is most generally on per-Lincoln Time. One window-sillhin Room 7 where space is adequate to discharge your excess bag- gage, but means lacking to hnd it again. One blackboard in Room 7 where information more or less can be obtained. One blackfoard in the Assembly room, where portraits of the faculty can be seen any day. One table in the Assembly where remnants of- magazines may be found which render valuable services to those stranded on Monday without a Current Event. One antique piano, which serves the purpose. XYaves of atmospheric disturbances when a teacher leaves the Assembly during a study period. One Mirror in Room 8 which is very popular, much to Mr. Shull's distress. Our good will and affection do -we. the Lincoln Freshmen Class of '23 bequeath to our Principal and teachers, to keep forever. --H. I. R., '26. DO YOU REMEMBER THE CLASS OF '26?

A MORNING IN SCHOOL WITH TOM ORNDORFF Algebras hard: won't come out right, Can't get my lesson, feel like a Fight. Papers all dirtyg sure is a sight. Oh! the mystery is solved, Out late last night. There was a young Freshie at Lincoln, W'ho was caught quite often at winkin'. The reason, she said, I want to be fed, But few Freshies confess it at Lincoln. If yesterday you got a zero, and you feelin' sorta blue. And your grades are below passinl and you're wonderin' if you'll get through. 'Tis a joyful thing, oh my classmates, for a teacher just to say, Oh Johnny, you got 95 per cent in that test we had today." It makes you feel happy, it makes you feel glad, You forget about that zero that made you feel so sad, You think about Prof. Coue and you indorse him to the letter, "Day by day, in every way, I'm getting better and better." All boys like to whistle, All girls like to hum But nothing gets on Shull's nerves so much As chewing gum. Ain't it fierce to go to High School? High School, Findlay, Findlay, High Never have no piece of mind, Teacher's eyes on me all the time, At my side she stands, stands, Waiting to rap my hands, Why every day She makes me throw my gum away, Ain't it fierce to go to High School?

Starting out from New York City on a dark, warm night in December on a wintry day in june, I went out automobiling on a bicycle. Going through a dense woods in a desert in Pennsylvania, I thought that some person was speaking to me and turning around, immediately I found out that it was 1ny bicycle spoke. Going on a little farther, I thought I heard a dog barking but I soon learned that it was the bark of the trees. After riding about six miles in four hours. I made a discovery that thrilled me, my bicycle was tired trubber tiredj. So noticing a horse and a carriage up the road about twenty miles, I walked there in five minutes and rode the automobile through to Cleve- land. You ask why I said automobile? You see I took the carriage away from the horse and therefore it was a horseless carriage. I found Cleveland filled with people and buildings. Being a little bit hungry, I asked a small boy where I could get good plain board, and he directed me to a lumber yard. So consequently I went down there to have some sawdust, It was fine board and no mistake. I attended a very grand ball that night at the hotel and went to bed at a quarter of twelve tthree is a quarter of twelvel. I had a dream, I dreamed that I was awake and upon awakening I found myself asleep. After getting dressed, I went down stairs and did somethnig desperate: I ate breakfast food for dinner. Having been in Cleveland two days and four weeks, I concluded to go to Chicago. Upon arriving, I found the city in great excitement on account of labor troubles. Upon inquiry, I learned that all hammers had gone on a strike and all the benches were mad because everybody was sitting upon them. Still all the men were happy because their wages had been raised tthey had been taken up in an elevatorj. Really I found everything was fair! The reason why I know, is that, I got on a street car and all the conductor said was "fare," Some of the exposition buildings, not being finished and further no one was working on them, I looked up the contractor and said, "What's the matter, haven't you enough laborers or material?" He replied that they did not have enough planes to smooth the boards. I then answered that he ought to have enough planes around here for the Mississippi plains ought to be enough. He rejoiced at my suggestion and finished the buildings in two days and one minute. After this I journeyed to the Rocky Mountains. I did not know how to get my automobile over so I just sat down and thought it over. I then journeyed to San Francisco and I saw several signs there, such as fire sale, alteration sale, and finally such a surprising thing as a sail on a boat. After buying one, I arrived in Japan, having rowed seven days across the Pacific. The only thing that I discovered on the ocean was that it was Filled with water. In Japan I learned why they did not conquer Russia immediately. They said they did not like to be Russian things. I journeyed to Canton. China, and there I told a Chinese laundryman that I was Lynn Collar, for I certainly was done up. Having lost a knee on the Pacific in a storm. I went to Africa where the negroes tknee growsj and got another so that I still was alright. Down at Cape Town I met a few witty English liappers who asked me if I had ever heard the joke and saw through it, that is. about the sand in the well. I said that I had not and so they laughed and replied that it was too deep for me. I next went to Paris and then to Brussels. There I rode in a car about the town. I noticed a cat lying upon the seat, the seat being covered with a beautiful carpet. I asked the man if that tpointing to the catl was a pet, and he said, "Yes, that is a Brussels car-pet." I arrived in Liverpool, England a week later. Going to the dock, I saw a lot of papers and some fellow said, "There is a raft of papers. Here was my chalice to save money so I rode home on the raft to New York City, being well satisfied with my journey. -RUTH SHANK, 225.

VVe learned to rouge as you were taught In Findlay High. -EDYTHE SVVANK. Page One Hundred and Twelve THE BLUE AND GOLD FOLLIES OF THE FELLOWS All people talk about now-a-days Are Flappers and their awful waysg Their bobbed hair and their silken hose, Their painted cheeks and powdered nose. But no one ever seems able to see How funny the boys can really be lNith their long side-burns and shoe-polished hair Bell-bottom trousers, and silly Sheik stare, 1 They walk with an R. Valentino gait And move their shoulders in a way hard to relate. They cock their heads, stick a fcign in their lips And certainly think that they're "the snake's hips." Their dancing of course is "nothing else but," Yet one sometimes thinks they have struck a deep rut, For in talking they all use the very same line, XYhich for them truly isn't a very good sign. Now if people would only leave Flappers alone, And give some attention to Sheiks in their homeg The fellows might learn to be bright, shining stars, Instead of knowing how to drive all makes of cars. -MURIEL DEHAVEN. WHAT'S IN A NAME? A Newcomer came to visit our Sophomore class. These are his experiences as he relates them. First they introduced me to a Bright, Sharp, Goodman who took me to the places of interest. It was very interesting indeed to see the Brickman, Tinsman and Foreman at their work. XYe also saw our future Bishop and Marshall industriously working. Then my Hart gave a leap, for up walked a Badger and a Brown Bear and I soon took to my Shanks. I was told the Badger Burrows in the ground. I said I was Dunn and wanted no Moore frights. For dinner we dined on Simmons although I really Pheitfefd pie for dinner. Later, while walking down the hall we passed a man Whaleii after a student fat least I thought sol saying "re-Pentzer, re-Pentzerf' In asking who it was, the Goodman replied, "Tis, Dale," Next I was introduced to some of the pupils, namely, Miss HayJward, Miss Bill- stone, Mr. Colling-wood and Mr. Swine-hart. Our next journey was to the Domestic Science Kitchen. I was seated in a Morris chair like a King and watched the girls Mix, Fry, and Cook, when to my surprise they put before me a Feist and I partook of it like a Kanable. I just love to recall this scene for I wanted to Dye there of happiness. But, I was too Young. I saw the girls sew and some of them certainly could handle the Needles. Ow, Ow, I was too inquisitive, I had touched something hot and received some bad Burns. Wfe then went through many Chambers and soon came to the furnace room which was in charge of a Krauss Blackman, named Charles. There I saw a lot of Cole. Moving on we saw Folks ahead of us and one especially looked familiar. I ran up to Turner around when I saw that I had met her before in Frantz, when I was there with my Foster parents. That afternoon the high school presented a show of Sterling character in which simple Simon and "Mutt" and Geffs took part. I rode away in my Dray and after a Hunt I found a delightful Hill which Rose with a gentle slope. This over-looked a clear Poole with an Edie in it. After climbing a NVyer fence I seated myself on a Stump and recalled a recent visit to an ole Mill which I reached by going up a Lane. I made myself acquainted with the Miller who had two other men working for him. He called them Mickey and john. A little boy playing around the mill he called john-son. I saw a Wooley sheep tied outside and he said he was going to Shearer. I watched him do this and when he was through the sheep was Bare, and he loosened it and hollered "Shuey,'l and away scampered the sheep. Then he showed me around the mill, how the grain first went in the Sheller and then through the Roller. Then he went to the shed where he got a XVhetstone which he was going to use to make his scythe Sharp. In the shed was a Ricker-Ctyj old wagon which he said he was going to take to Page One Hundred and Thirteen THE BLUE AND GOLD thc NVaggoncr for repairs. He said he called this his VVood-Ford. I asked him why he dicln't tradc it for an Essex. I looked out the XYetilst sfde of the mill and saw the Broadwater which was backed up by the mill dam. The Miller asked me if I was tired and I told him that he could not Tucker me out so easily. Before leaving the mill the Miller showed me a bunch of Herbst which he said he had gathered in the woods for his wife, who always made many old-ffashioned remedies. He said she Harpst on that subject every spring. -NELLIE BADGER, '25. BY RADIO Talk about mix ups, let me give you a sample of what I heard over the wireless, one clear night not long ago. It went something like this: "This is K. D, K.

CONSOLATION To see yourself as others see you In the High School Looking-glass Sometimes makes you feel exalted, Sometimes causes much distress. Some reHections look like Mozart, Washiiigton, or Raphael, Or perhaps a Fannie Crosby Or a Florence Nightingale. All of these may make you happy, But you'll surely stop and think NVhen you find a hundred students Voted you the missing link. Laziest, the biggest bluffer, Sloppiest or most perverse, Crankiest crank in the school, A nut, or even worse. You may merit these opinions Or they may be quite unjustg Wie are judged by words and actions, Sometimes they are only dust. Yet, it's up to every person Camouflages to destroy Folks can't tell a soul is golden If it's covered with alloy. -VIRGINIA SHARP, '25. THE PHILOSOPHY OF BEING ALIVE Did it ever occur to you what pros and cons a man's life is full of? He comes into this worldwithout his consent and goes out against his will, and the trip between is ex- ceedingly rocky. The rule of contraries is one of the features of this trip. Wlhen he is little the big girls kiss him: when he is big the little girls kiss him. fThese rules have exceptions. however.D If he is poor he is unthriftyg if he is rich, he is dishonest. If he needs credit, he can't get itg if he is prosperous, every one wants to do him a favor. If he is in politics, it is for graft: if he is not, he is unpatrioticg If he doesn't give to charity, he's a stingy cuss: if he does, it's for show. If he is actively religious, he's a hypocriteg if he is uninterested in it, he is a sinner. If he makes love he's a mushy molly- coddleg if he doesn't he is either bashful or cold-blooded. If he dies young, there was a great future before him, if he lives to an old age, he missed his calling. If he gets money, Page One Hundred and Fourteen THE BLUE AND GOLD he's a grafterg if he saves it he's a tight-ward and a grouchg if he spends it, he's a loaferg but if he doesn't get any, he's a bum. One vice-versa after another! If you get good grades and pass your classes, you're the faculty's pet, but if you flunk you're a loafer. So- VVhat's a fellow going to do When hopelessly he's stranded If he does a thing, he does it wrong, If he don't he's reprimanded. -MALLOY. '23, "Names is Names" tXYith apologies to the Class of 'ZSD "I say," said the Leader to the man on the Line, -"Let's pack these Good-men off in Crates. Then we'll Cook her Bacon and we'll be Neier getting our Price." XVhcn the man on the Line told the Taylor, the latter Rose, and exclaimed, "Kinney do it P" "I'm not sure," was the reply, "l'll ask the Miller." "Do what?" asked the Miller stroking his Beard. "Tucker in the -Cole tire and Baker," was the response. just then a Newcomer appeared on the scene. 1 'VVhat's the argument?" he queried. "They have a Kuhn over there, and were going to Cooper up and Baker so we can have Mauer to eat," volunteered one of the conspirators. "They'll get W'ise if you Rader in the Day time. You'd better wait till Knight," the stranger Warned. "Oh, Shaw! XVhat's the use? lt'll Frost tonight and we'll get too cold," com- plained the Taylor. "Do as I say if you Want Fuller stomachs tomorrow," said the stranger, "That's Pretty good advice." agreed the Miller- "By all means, let us Wait, or they'll Altschnl us out-or maybe worse than that," they chorused. So they waited 'till Knight to perform the theft. -B. B. '23.

THE VALUE OF A SMILE There is a something in a smile that no real man can condemn, And it is looked upon with happiness by all types of men. - If you are feeling happy, and you want the world to know it, There is nothing on this earth like a big, broad smile to show it. Now, if you're hurt or disappointed with something in this life, There is nothing like a happy smile to set your heart aright. If you have wronged a person, and are in fear of all mankind, There is nothing like a helpful smile to strengthen up your mind. From the time you're an infant until you're feeble, old and gray, There is nothing that should be able to steal a smile away. -PAULINE CARPENTER. SENIOR PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE tfontinued from Page Twenty-tivcb spirit of cooperation that no incident during our four years of high school limit our praise and love of our instructors, which love, will be an inspiration during the remaining years of our lives.

Cooperation has formed friendships which will always be remembered. -PAUL DYE, President '23. I know a bunch of jolly kids.

THE BLUE AND GOLD ROMANCE OF MISS TWENTY-THREE Chapter I. Miss Twenty-three had lately become heiress to-merely a family name, She was a young, well-educated girl and she belonged to an established family, who, however, in recent years had not been wealthy, Consequently she was left with few funds and the duty to keep her family name, one of honor and respect. This was rather a difficult thing to do and she realized the fact, XVith only her aunt and governess, Miss Jacobs and Miss Lena Kiefer, the young orphan forged ahead. Too young to enter the social world, she held herself 'aloof from society and remained within her own little sphere of industry. By giving her talent to the producing of an opera, "The Rose Maiden," given by the little village of "Freshman," she attracted for the first time, the eyes of the public. But Fate proved that things were not to remain thusly. She must leave this old estate and with her departure came another sad event, that of leaving her two best friends- her advisors. Chapter II. In he old estate she had been well known but with the changing of homes and localities came the new friends. It took some time to become acclimated to her new neighbors. Some social functions tRhetoricalsl given in her honor, however, succeeded in gaining her the lasting frendship and admiration of many people. A year under these circumstances raised her to a great extent in the estimation of all. She was growing into a beautiful young lady and especially was she a leader and an energetic one. Chapter III. At this time her increasing popularity and business matters involving her estate compelled her to have some help. She used great skill in selecting very competent people. They were: Newton Priddy, Executorg Margaret Renninger, Assistant Exccutor: Ethel Dorsey, Private Secretary, and Betty Brickman, Treasurer. In the midst of her present contentment and happiness-Love enters, her story. Upon one of her frequent business trips tMartha-by-the-Dayl to Fame, she met one of her former acquaintances, Mr. Success. Her trips, heretofore had been long and unpleasant but with Mr. Success, it seemed all too brief. It was after becoming better acquainted with the gentleman that she found she really loved although she refused even then to admit it. Her life must be one of duty and she must not allow herself to be turned aside from her important work by such petty emotions. Mr. Success was a well-known and liked man. He did not claim any city as his permanent home, having been on a tour of the country when he happened upon his old acquaintance. However, upon taking leave of his new friend, he determined that he should at least frequent one little city more than he had before. And his first visit was, indeed, sooner than he had anticipated. It was in less than two months that Miss Twenty- three made her formal entrance into society and Mr. Success was present on this occa- sion. The reception tjunior-Seniorl given in this event was truly successful. The young gentleman was received very cordially by the friends of Miss Twenty-three and the young couple became the topic of conversation. By this time he had become well known and the people felt very proud to have such an influential man in their midst, the welfare of Miss Twenty-three concerned the whole Village of Central High. Marriage with this man would secure her happiness besides performing the duty of bringing wealth once more into the family. Chapter IV. And now in the autumn of nineteen twenty-two we still End Miss Twenty-three on her successful way, never idle but always performing some task of merit, to gain more respect from the public and to make herself more admirable in the eyes of Mr. Success. By this time the ofhcers of her estate had withdrawn and their places were being taken by Paul Dye, Executorg Don Corbin, Assistant Executorg VVilliam Andrews, Pri- vate Secretary, and Alfred Hards, Treasurer. A social function to be given CCopperheadJ in the near future by Miss Twenty-three being planned. It is to be one of the most promising affairs of the yearg all her friends are deeply interested in the success of it. After this event has been held, everyone will look forward to the wedding tCom- mencementb in the early spring of the young debutante to Mr. Success. One of the important pre-nuptial affairs will be the reception given by her friends. This is only one of the events in her honor. Everyone accepts the news of the marriage very willingly and extends them future happiness. With the wedding, Miss Twenty-.three reached a goal. She has made herself a success, intellectually, socially and Financially. but this is not the goal she was striving for. This is only one of the steps on the road of achievements she wishes to accomplish- always striving for something bigger and better.

I see you got my radio message, for you're ready right on the dot. Hop in, and we'll be off, as I want 'to get you there before dark so you can see the beautiful colony which we have established on Mars. All ready? Here we go-say goodbye to Mother Earth for a while, perhaps forever, for I know you're just going to adore Mars. "Isn't my aeroplane a darling? It was invented by Harold Henderson, and built by the Burket-Miller Construction Company. Stewart Kramer is the demonstrator. They have a large factory on Gower Street. Paul Dye is president: Don Corbin, vice president: lVilliam Andrews, secretary: Alfred Hards, treasurer: Harlow Struble, general manager, and Margaret Renninger, private secretary. "Am I driving too fast? I want you to be comfortable you see. Newton Priddy and John Leader took a notion that it would be a grand thing to found a colony on Mars. and they knew that no one could do this as well as the Class of '23, so after persuading Ethel Dorsey to finance the undertaking, they landed us altogether, and there we are prosper- ous and happy. The weather is just as we want it for Frank Gillespie invented a machine that controls the rain and sunshine: it is operated by Kenneth Frost, on Snow Mountain. "NYC have a dandy hotel on Kinley Ave., built by the Althaus and Beard Construc- tion Company. Max Hosler and Garland Pheiffer are the main stock holders in this Company: Earl Misamore is proprietor, Harry Cook is the chef, and he surely knows his business, for the food is perfect. "VVe have but one political party, the Republican, therefore we never have any trouble, but in case we ever should have, we have chosen some tine officers. Frank Hoyer is judge: Reginald Coykendale, mayor: Mary Jackson, sheriff: George Harpst, chief of police: and George Edie, fire chief. "VVe'll alight at Kiefer Park, which is not far from Gail Hill, where I live. You'll love the Hill. because it is so beautiful, due to the artistic work of our landscape gardener, Alvin Rose. Kiefer Park, the pride of our colony, was designed by Truman Plotts. "The Lytle Movie Sutdio is built out on Lee Ave. This is one of the most gorgeous buildings of all the plants. It was designed by our famous architect, Marlowe Line. Carle Bacon is the producer, Selma Alexander, the director, and Elmo Tyner, stage manager. VVQ surely have some wonderful films. Last week we had 'Govern Yourself Accordingly". starring Leta Price, Lucille Hoch and Carmen Edwards. Earl Hamilton played the part of the villian. The added attraction was 'Doings of the Klu Klux', with Bill Snook and Russell Snyder playing the comedy roles. Our motion pictures are trans- mitted by radio, a method patented by Burnell Alspach. "Our Electric Light Plant, on Bright Ave., is managed by Sarah Newcomer, and the Wlater XVorks by I. XValdo Seiple. The Gas Plant on jenkins Street is managed by Everett Snyder. The Glendora Mills, on the corner of Collier and Gerlaugh Streets, are ably managed by Harold Roberts and the general foreman is Russel Orwick. NVe pass these Mills on the way to the Sattler Institution, the purpose of which is to establish friendship and prevent misunderstanding among the planets. The head of the institution is Ruth Fuller.

Their office is on Littleton Ave. That is right opposite Haverfield Court, where all the newly Weds live. Merritt Jaqua and his wife, nee Bird Byal, live there. You know Jake made lots of money on a book he wrote, 'The Obstacles of Love', which was quite the rage. Right beside them live Cecil Kuhn and Bessie Yoxthimer, they are so blessfully happy that its almost pitiful. "Oh, and did I tell you that Ralph Mitchell, Mildred Agner, VVilliam Harpst and Mable Beck have all started to explore Mercury and if its as nice as Mars they're going to found a colony there. Professor Gerald Smith is government astronomer, and with his help, Patil Day invented a Projectocar. which has such a powerful motor that you can shoot through the stars and in a Hash reach any planet you wish. Dorothy M. Cole is to act as pilot on this trip, Pearl Benson is to be head cook: Naomi Bish, Catherine Brunk, Marian Collingwood and Ruby Swisher volunteered to go as missionaries: john Roberts and Helen Huffman as interpreters: and Ruth Mitchell will keep the record of all the adventures of the explorers. In case of sickness, Dr. Naomi Burson went along with Margaret Alge as nurse. Thelma Clemens went for mere excitement. The expedi- tion could not be a success without Betty XVagner and Mary Dorothy Cole, sure cures for the blues. So this flock all left yesterday and we hope to hear from them soon.

This milestone points to the past and to the future. Looking in the direction of the past, although we do not see an emblem of perfection, we do see the accomplishments of industry and cooperation. Looking to the future we see the door of golden opportunity: the opportunity for higher education in the colllege of the school of life. VVe can pay no higher tribute to the memories of the past than to embrace to the best of our abilities the opportunities of the future, that our attainments and accomplishments may be a magnificent memorial. As we pass this milestone into our future let us not be ungrateful to our benefactors. These blessings which we have enjoyed, however great or small are the languages of Providence, the expression of Divine love and care. The government of our great state. Ohio, representing a great commonwealth, opens wide the door of opportunity to her youth, that involves the expenditure of large sums of money for the erection of beautiful school buildings, their maintenance, equipment. and instructors. Our faculty are not hirelings of our public school system, they are benefactors. They have unceasingly toiled that we may profit. Our individual welfare has been their greatest concern. Dis- courtesy and disrespect sometimes shown our teachers have not been from the heart, but just the mistakes of youth. Our teachers have been too large-hearted to lay these mistakes up against us. These have been happenings producing occasional discord that have for the moment marred the melody of cooperation. But so heavily has been the CContinued on Page One Hundred and Eighteen.J Page Twenty-ive THE BLUE AND GGLD LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THE CLASS OF 'za I, VVm.

This ancient monarch was entombed at Findlay, Ohio, and it was our good fortune to have found his resting place after eight weary years of toil in the grades. From the discoveries that have been made, we may draw the conclusion that he was the ruler of a highly civilized race of people who inhabited this country long before the Indians, indeed about 1000 B. C. The barbarian tribes of Indians probably descended upon this part of the civilized world about the same time similar invasions were made upon Europe. All traces of this people had been practically destroyed, and although numerous attempts have been made to discover remnants of their civilization, scientists believe ours to be the most valuable work of the age. NVe set to work with a will, and in our first year's labor succeeded in unearthing only a few minor antechambers. But in these we found tools to aid us in our work. XVe discovered that "boni pueri" are very rare specimens, and came by the key that was to unlock the mysteries of Caesar, Cicero, and Virgil by learning to decline Latin nouns, and conjugate verbs in an exceedingly creditable manner. These ancients must have had a civilization very similar to that of the dwellers along the Nile, for we found many mathematical mysteries which we were nearly unable to solve: indeed it would have been hopeless had it not been for certain able guides, Miss Coates and Miss Bernice Kieffer. lfVe learned the necessity of purity in our own language so we might better present the literary gems we discovered in our work. 'VVe also found many extensive writings in history besides other papyrus rolls of great value. NVe found numerous strange musical instrumentsg by their aid and that of Mr. Roberts we succeeded in rendering a beautiful cantata, "The Rose Maiden." The sweet- ness of our music so entranced our friends and relatives that they presented us with gifts of great value. By means of their generosity we were enabled to take a vacation, and returned to our work a year after the beginning of our novel adventure. At the end of our first year's work we had come upon a sealed entrance to inner recesses, but although we were curious concerning the contents of the chambers, we were not allowed to explore them. But after our vacation we broke open the seal, and passed from the antechamber of Freshmanism to that less inferior place of Sophomorism. 'We dug and delved away, and by the aid of the tools acquired in our first year's work We made no mean discoveries. More records of history were brought to light, besides several dreadful puzzles in geometry. But the most astonishing thing was that by our Latin key we unlocked a curious chest containing forecasts of the accomplishments of a certain great general who lived some thousand years after the foretelling of the events. No more will we scott at the ability of the ancients to read the stars, for such graphic descriptions were given that no one doubted the probability of their originality. VVe excelled in entertainingg accordingly some of our number joined different school organizations for the purpose. But the crowning events of our second year were the feast day appointed in the fall for great merrymaking, and our first public exhibit at Christmas time when we appeared in all the glory of our accomplishments. And now we Find ourselves temporarily prevented from further investigation by an- other sealed door. Many of us became greatly excited when we thought we had found the body of King Knowledge, but it proved to be only a life-size statue guarding the door to our further research. But this gave us hope, for what valuable information lay beyond to be so guarded? We again take advantage of a rest so we may more ably con- tinue the work of exploration until-until probably two years hence we come into the possession of the mummy of King Knowledge himself, far beyond those who are nn- willing to labor for the prize. -MARY HILTY.

And the subjects rebellezl and were angry, but they were compelled to 80- Each group was placed in a certain room according to its knowledge, and behold. the Freshies were first at the Lincoln. Many were frightened, becoming desperate on accoutnt of the mixup of classes and "periods," especially the kind Miss Cratty anal hfiss Moore handed out the first few weeks. In their sleep the subjects saw colons, semi-colous, macrons and everything else all mixed up. It soon came time to choose a pianist, and Lillian XYise was chosen, and the Assemkiy rejoiced, and was exceedingly glad. There was in the Land a musical director called Roberts, and he came on Mondays and Thursdays to teach music. Football days were fine and the Freshies hailed them with joy. But on the thirteenth day of the eleventh month, Fostoria came, played unfair, and did cheat, and F. H. S. severed all relations. There was tumult among all the Freshies. Everyone wore "Fletcher" badges, and did parade. On the seventeenth day queer cards with numbers and long words on them were handed out. Many frowned and wept. and some bewailed their fate. but Mr. Green, the high ruler, did say soft words in their ears and they braced up. and were glad again. In the twelfth month a fair Freshie, called Rose, brought her skates to school and others copied and all did have fun skating. Everyone brought skates and after school skated at a place called Swale. W'hen Miss Cratty was in the .Xssembly she did make subjects change their positions and they scowled. A lass, Helen Sausser. was popular and made movements called whispering and her seat was changed often, but she did not scowl for she was used to it and did know no better. Another one called Yera Blackman gave sweets to the rulers, and behold, her grades did not rise and she did quit. On the 20th day of the llth month, a program was given by Miss Cratty's subjects UIQ and the Assembly and rulers were surprised at such eloquence, and talent, and re- solved in their hearts to give better ones. They did give many and all were just as good. The day ended with tumult. for all were to have a vacation. They enjoyed their vaca- tions. but they marveled, for behold, New Years came on january first! And they said within themselves, "When has it happened so before?" On the second day of the first month they returned to school with good resolutions, which they did keep one week, which is seven days. On the ninth day the higher ruler made a speech about a queer book called the Blue and Gold. Soon after a committee was chosen and they asked the subjects to contribute. On the tenth day the cards were given out again and all were excited and their hearts did stand in their mouths and they were afraid lest they should lose them, There was grief o'er all the land on the twentieth clay for the ruler of "Algebra" was ill and could not arise from her pillow. She was ill for many weeks so there was a substitute. And it came to pass that a ruler had a new suit, and the subjects did wonder and smile, but said nothing. There were essays written and the musical contest finished. and the ruler took great part. He was called Mr. Shull, and all learned to respect his likes and dislikes, for he had exceedingly great power over his subjects. Spring time is the time for new raiment. Miss Moore, who was one of the rulers had many blouses of many colors, and the subjects did marvel. A great portion of Miss Eby's subjects had a kind of raiment called "middy" and each was a different hue. Their grammar was likened unto this: past tense-middy, present-kimona, and future-dress. And many others were wonderfully arrayed, Henry Mvolganiot had long jeans, and Gail Bayse a new eton. The rulers had a new record for the F. H. S. phonograph, which was called "You're Failing," and it was not harmonious. The subjects spake among themselves about lt. The high ruler made speeches and made the subjects pick up paper, which was dis- concerting, It was whispered around that the subjects were tired of school, and "day by day in every way" they studied less and less. They did sleep in school. but they found that they were getting smaller numbers on their cards so they braced up. They did finish with higher grades, and their heads were filled with "The Merchant oi Venice," a book taught by the rulers, Miss Cratty and Miss Moore. They were ready for a great vacation. And so ended a year which was good, and all were exceedingly glad. -ESTHER SAUSSER.

XVe ought to be proud of the fact that we are "fresh" and "green"! Green trees grow faster than old, dry, decayed ones, and are not consumed as quickly by tires. I say "lifes" because there are many "fires" by which human beings are consumed, such as malice. envy, greed, and so on. After all, are not older people more quickly overcome by these tires? Take a younger person, he has a life before him in which it is not so hard to recnperate from the effects of these tires, while the older persons are drawn down and down unless their will- power is very strong, and spirit dauntless. , VVe are holding up something else besides spirit, too, and that is the reputation which the Vtfashington students, our predecessors, have established for us. Bel eve me, it must have taken a real fighting spirit to accomplish the things they have handed down to us. But we have some things we are going to hand down, too. Take, for instance, this Parent Night idea, giving your father and mother a chance to attend school again. which We handled successfully for the lirst time. That was the hrst time it has ever been done in the Findlay Public Schools, so we have earned the right to be called its pioneers. It is true, we haven't space enough for some things, but after all, the space isn't what counts. lt's the things that are done in that space by the people who occupy it. 'l'hat's what counts. VVe want you, if you think you can, to find a school, a student body, that shows any more spirit, that gets back of anything and pushes any more than our student body does. VVe are not a large body, but "might makes right," is a thing of the past, As you have probaibly noticed, the general using stratagem most generally wins. And how could we help but have a spirit with such good,-no, fine-teachers to show us the right way when we come to the crossroads? And so, I admire the true VVashington High Spirit, and want to impress upon your minds with the last stroke o-f my pen that the Vlfashington High School, like the Rock of Ages, stands firm in any storm and cannot be blasted out by the dynamite of ridicule itself.

After a short illness, he passed away in the quietude of sleep, leaving to his school-mates and associates, only a vacant chair, and the never-breaking tie of friendship. He was a pal to many and a friend to allg but let us confine our further sentiments to the words of Gray: "Here rests his head upon the lap of Earth, A Youth to Fortune and to Fame unknown Fair Science frownfd not on his humble birth, And Melancholy marked him for her own. ns Large was his bounty, and his soul sincere Heav'n did a recompense as largely send He gave to Misr'y, all he had, a tear, Ho gained from heav'n Ctwas all he wishedb a friend.

It ' 1 gupwgul' A WHAT SCHOOL SPIRIT REALLY IS School spirit is as essential to the proper functioning of a school as patriotism is to the success of an army. The absence ot this important element in either case means deteat. School spirit is threefold. It acts as a magnet, drawing pupils from afar. It acts as an incentive, inducing pupils to exert greater effort in their studies, tending toward greater efhczency, thus raising the standard of the school, lt acts as El generator of school interest among the Alumni. thus insuring their support. lint alaove all this, it means mass activities in which every pupil of any age or stand- ing may have his tull share. H. H. C.'XRl"ENTliR. President of the Eoard of Education. The spirit of the school perinczites the entire community with the pupils as the media of transmission. The visitor of the school senses the spirit at once and estimates the school accordingly, He does not rate the school Ivy the loudness of their liurrahs. hut pronounces the school either good or had according to the spirit it obtains in the attitude of the pupils toward the teachers, in the attitude of the pupils toward their work, and in the attitude of the pupils toward their school, A single manifestation of rowdyisni may annul, in the minds of the people in the community, all the good work of the school for the entire year. In a school where the right spirit prevails, there is a preponderance of sentiment in favor of right conditions and no pupil can luring himself to go counter to this sentiment. Furthermore, the spirit of the school alleviates the necessity for any formal pronounce- ments on the subject of conduct. XVith the right school spirit comes respect for the rights of other pupils, a real happiness in work done, good training in hahits which fix ideals of conduct, and a dis- tinctly formulated :tim in each pupil's mind, emphasizing the real oliject of the school- the purpose for which he is there. I. F. MATTESON. Superintendent of the Public Schools of Findlay. School spirit is one of those many fine English phrases which have suffered from too wide popularity. Its frequent Contact with unwise and indiscriminating minds has quite degenerated its original fine meaning. It has 'been so modified and adapted to the Page Forty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD exigencies of personal whim that it now will cover any thought which the school enthusi- ast may desire. There is a much finer and more meaningful application of the term. This is the un- usual opportunity for cooperation wh ch the school offers in all the phases of its activity. A broader interpretation of the term would make it include the citizenship of the class room. In the mind of the modern educator the schoolroom means much to him as a rnina- ture citizenship. The opportunity of adapting one's self to a course of procedure, of learning to conform with regulation, and of acquiring that priceless asset of any man- the ability to get along with people-such opportunities are offered nowhere qu'te so intensely as in the class room. The modern teacher realizes that fundamental lessons of conduct and decorum can be learned in the classroom, if the pupil realizes the importance and reacting'4inHuence of the group in which he is situated. This realization shows to him that he profits or loses in exact proportion to what he adds or detracts from the group. This, then, is the finest and most desirable school spirit. The pupil who has acquired this spirit while he is in school will not be lacking in any zeal for whatever his com- munity stands. He will give his hearty and sincere support to that which stands for progress in any situation he may encounter. -DALE D. HUTSON. School Spirit! XVe think we know what it means, but do we? Many students, upon inquiry, would, no doubt, reply that it means "rah-rahing" for the football team. Now we do not deny that this is school spirit-but it's only one phase of it! School spirit includes many, many other phases. The boys and girls, who burn midnight oil night after night acquainting themselves with the subject for inter-scholastic debates, have just as much school spirit in their way as do the football stars. Real school spirit does not only exclude dragging one's feet, but includes efforts to push. Throwing pennies, shuffling feet and the like are demonstrations of sp'rit, but of childish spirit-not the real thing. Even were a pupil to refrain from such muscular efforts, were he always prepared in class. would he have school spirit if he satplacidly by. wasting his talents and letting the "other fellow" do his work? He would not! In short, school spirit consists of making the best of one's opportunities. Let those who wish, participate in athletics. That's school spirit! Likewise, let those who have ability as debaters and dramatic performers, make the best of their gifts. And let the rest ef us have enough school spirit and loyalty to back them in their different enterprises. Furthermore, let's all of us appoint ourselves a committee of one to do those things which most benefit the welfare of our school. Time out, to think, fellow students! Are we, individually, doing all of which we are capable to make our school a success? l'f ue can conscientiously say then we have school spirit! -B. B., '25, Each pupil has certain duties which he voluntarily performs, the doing of which contributes to the success of the school. The inspiration causing the performance of these duties is known as "School Spirit," without which the school could not hope for success. Merely having an inspiration and carrying these out is not sufficient for a high standard of school spirit, but the student by means of concentration and hard work must develope his mind, which will expand these inspirations. These inspirations after having been demonstrated must be replaced by better ones, each adding constructively to the success of the entire school. An efficient standard of school spirit cannot be secured by mere cooperation among the students attending school. Mothers, fathers, instructors, and students must all co- operate daily to obtain that which every school desires, but few possess "Real School Spirit." Students may possess a great imaginative power, great forethought and a wonderfully developed intellect but he or she cannot begin to realize the meaning of this big term "Spirit," nor how dear his school is until he is about to part with it. That is why instructors are essential in the training of pupils. One who really takes his school to heart possesses to a certain extent some school spirit. He cannot be discourteous. unloyal, or destructive in any off his undertakings. Courtesy, in my estimation, should be the leading factor that can be discovered in the possessions of any pupil young or old. Courtesy to instructors, courtesy to fathers and mothers, courtesy to companions is a indispensible attribute to a real success in schools as well as in the commercial world. Year after year school spirit ought to approach more closely the goal of perfection. Students. ought to realize the necessity of this factor in their school success and happi- ness which always follows. A student. above all, should prepare his daily work to the Page Forty-four THE BLUE AND GOLD best of his ability adding great contributions in class recitation, because it will influence others to follow his footsteps and create in them a great liking for study which will cause them to take their school to heart. Development of cooperation and school spirit have made this year a success in all activities as well as in learning. The future of Findlay High School is unknown, but we predict that the excellencies of the past will be surpassed by the accomplishments oi the future. PAUL DYE, President '23. Some of you will wonder just what I mean when I speak of "School Spirit," By school spirit I mean the willing cooperation of the students of the school with their class officers, advisors and teachers. As a whole I th'nk this year has been a bigger and better success than was ever expected because every student was a staunch supporter of all the activities undertaken by the school Because of this school spirit we filled the bleachers for all the games, sold three complete houses for "The Charm School": made "The Copper Head" a roar- ing success, and against many difficulties succeeded in putting across the Blue and Gold proposition. Could such propositions be so successful without that "School Spfritu? No! Allow me to ask you one question. Wfhy have you spent your time for athletics, play, debate. and music practice? I can tell you-it was done to obtain honor and educa- tion for yourself: and as a member of the School, your honors are the School's Honors. just as "The Charm School" was the junior's play or 'The Copper Head" was the Senior play. Therefore, let every one of us lift our feet off the ground-keep them from dragging- do some general good for the school, and in this way make Findlay High School the Best School. DONALD CRAXYFORD. Junior President. GRADUATION DAYS As the day approaches when we shall sit on the stage in the auditorium for the last time as high school students ready to receive our diplomas, we feel a tinge of sadness and even of regret pass through us. XYhen we think that for the last tme we shall be under the protecting wing of the Faculty, we feel lost! A year from now, some of us will be "Fresh" at colleges, while the rest of us will already be battling in the game of life. Long ago we used to count the days before school dismissal in the and look joyfully forward to vacation. But now, we count the days just the same but with a more sober feeling, as though this last vacaton were an unwelcome one. W'hen our elders, whom we thought didn't know as much as we did, told us that our high school days were the happiest of our lives we began seriously to doubt the absolute sanity of such individua's, XVhy we could scarcely wait till we were free! But as those so-called "fre-e' days draw nearer, we wonder after all if our elders weren't right? If High School doesn't mark the pinnacle of freedom and happiness? However, these care-free days are drawing. inevitably to a close. So let us all at least pay a silent tribute to cur old school days. which will soon be ended! -B. B., '23. OUR NEW SCHOOLS Atlast our fondest hopes have been realized. XYhat we mean is this. that for the last four or five years the students of F. H. S. and the citizens of Find'ay through these co umns and by other means have been clamoring and agitating for new and better high school facilities. In fact two years ago a vote was taken in the student body and ninety per cent of the pupils expressed a desire that something be done to better the exsting conditions in this school. XVe talked of a new high school in the class rooms and out. NVhenever an unusualy hard storm or an exceptionally cold day presented itself everyone had a more or less constructive criticism to offer. All this wrangling and writhing has not been in vain for the great event has hap- pened, the city has decided to erect two new junior high schools and enlarge and repair old Central High. 'VVhen we return next year on our hol'day vacation from-Yale or Harvard Cwe haven't decided which yetl we will not be able to recognize Central as the place wherein some of the most joyous days of our young life were spent. Although thse new buildings will not directly benefit us of the Class of '23 we wish to compliment the future classes of F. H. S. upon being students in so noteworthy a school. It is our utmost desire to see the young people of Findlay educated in the best of environments. VVhen this is brought about we believe that we will have an ideal community. Page forty-Eve THE BLUE AND GOLD THRIFT During the past few years we have had introduced several institutions for the better- ment of the school in general, to-wit, year before last athletics were revfved. last year the Wfednesday morning singing was started. However, we think that this year the best of all has come and that is Thrift Day every Tuesday. In our opinion this idea of saving one's pennies habitually should have been introduced long ago. Real thrift does not mean not buying the necessities of life. However, it does mean thinking twice before doing so. Thrift is a thing that cannot be taught or learned in a week, a year, or even several years. The teaching of it must begin at an early age in our career. VVe never think of teaching a person to read at the age of twenty or later, yet Thrift is just as important and we never have had it taught before this year. Although we usually think of Thrift in relation to monetary affairs, there are other phases of the subject. Let us consider time. Do you think it is thrifty to sit in the Assembly Room and do nothing? Of course not. Yet some people do this who are very regular in depositing their pennies on Tuesday-but they aren't thrifty. The wasting of one thing even though another is saved cannot be called Thrift. In still another way let us examine this institution. If everyone in thfs school were really thrifty, would there be the commotion and disorder at dismissals that now exists. No! for the really thrifty person would realize that these actions are not only a waste of time but also of energy. Hence by being thrifty at this time we save not only our time but our energy, thus killing two birds with one stone. These thoughts are set forth not in a pessimistic attitude but rather in one of optim- ism for how are we to better our school if some remedies are not suggested? TO THE F. H. S. FACULTY VVithin the pages of this annual from year to year have appeared comments on the integrity or special lofi ability of individual students. XVe have seen these students excel in different lines of work, but we often give to them all the praise with little regard to the source from which they had received their foundation. Therefore, let us dedicate these next few lines to the F. H. S. faculty. First of all, we are proud of our outside activities-football, dramatics, debating. XVe are more than willing to give the sudent body its full due, but after all, who made the football season so successful? The fellows who played and the girls who cheered? To some extent-yes. But in a greater measure, the ability of the man who taught those boys how to play and the girls how to cheer. The Faculty! How many of us knew without telling that we should never turn our backs to the audience, or that we should always say our lines on the stage not off? Few. XYho enlightened us? The Faculty! lfVho informed us that when debating we should address the chair and the judges, should always have an introduction and a summary to our speeches, and a lot of other bewildering things? The Faculty! Furthermore, did we know tbefore the Faculty told us! that "au revoir" didn't mean "oh resevoir"-that "x plus y" didn't give you "z"-that you could work a typewriter with more than one finger-that you- Hunkecl in class if you didn't come prepared-that it was "fourth-balcony stuff" to shuffle feet and throw pennies? XVho did we say told us? The Faculty! And perhaps a little more seriously, it is the Faculty who have begged, implored, aided, an,d struggled through four long wearisome years so that they might teach us the fundamentals for our future lives. How nobly they have struggled, that our intellectual natures might be more fully developed! Once more we ask who is responsible for our development along this liner The Faculty! So-let's go, students-one, two, three! Faculty rah! Faculty rah! Rah. rah! Faculty! OUR SUPERINTENDENT VVe all pride ourselves in the fact that we have one of the finest High Schools in the United States because both the students and faculty of F. H. S. are loyal. The final test of loyalty came this year when Superintendent Matteson was offered a much more lucra- tive position in another school. This opportunity he did not accept. This shows not only that this school is in the front tanks of institutions of its kind in America but that we have officers of the school who are really 'big in educational circles and are in great de- mand everywhere. XVe realize that only a sense of loyalty to our school and the desire to finish a work so well begun has kept our superintendent here. In view of these things we believe the school and city sholuld feel highly honored in having such a man as Mr. Matteson remain at the head of its school system.

Seemingly it would not be much of a task to write up the record of a football seasoii bitt the last season was a peculiar one. lt was one full of disappointments. llut why should we dig up a lot of past woe and grief? The football season has been closed and almost forgotten for several months and rests tranquilly in all its glory. .Xt the beginning' ot the season the team looked on paper as if it should have made a wonderful record but somehow or other this success failed to materialize. However, let tis not think tit' what did not happen but rather what did happen. XVith the beginning of September a stranger in our midst might have wondered, at the little groups of people all over Findlay but to natives it was the most natural thing in the world. Not Only was the lligh School bubbling over hnt the whole town was fairly bursting with football enthusiasm. In almost every household, store, or in fact any place where people congrcgated something was sure to be said about football. l believe it really was the most wonderful spirit that any team ever had behind it. To my mind this season marked a new era in Findlay football. In previous years the teams had been forced to dress quite a distance from the held and then to play on :i small baseball diamond that had no stands or any accommodations for either team. But this year the business men of the town, the :Xlumni Association of the High School and the Athletic Association appropriated funds and built a club house with accommodations for a visiting team as well as our own and erected stands around the held that accom- Page Forty-nine fF0REW0RDS weineplxgeagor offhis cmnualto prese ntto gnu the antwltles of FH S ondolso to set forth some of the minus cmctsorrows 09 ffl6l5ECl!'l922 Z3 ' . 0 . r . . .

THE BLUE AND GOLD modated approximately two thousand people. ln short, the old athletic park really became what the name implied and it was well worth while as the enormous turnottts to each game indicated. Robert Fletcher returned his second year as football coach with a formidable array of candidates turning out for places on the squad. With practically the same team as the year before, which made such an enviable record, the chances for success this year looked doubly as bright. As there was a long season ahead Coach Fletcher was con- tented to round his squad into shape slowly and without a very hard prospect in Ada for the first game gave the team only a few simple formations. Ada rather surprised us and turned out to be a great little team but, although playing pretty ragged, Findlay was able to win 32 to 0. The Ada game served as an eye-opener and the next week in a driving rain against Lima another victory was recorded after a hard fight. Bluffton has never inspired much fear in a Findlay team and consequently the team was very over- confident before the game. After Bluffton had scored two touchdowns the team woke up and easily beat this scrappy little aggregation 63 to 13. Then came the Toledo-Scott game. Apparently the only thing to say about this is that we failed to emerge from our attack of buck fever until Scott was at the big end of a 48 to 0 score. Fremont, for the next game, sent in a hard team, but the outcome was never in doubt. Findlay won 23 to 0. The following Saturday with no game scheduled, some of the alumni of the High School were good enough to organize a team and give us a little workout which they did with a vengence. On Armistice Day every one knows what happened. The team really played on this day the brand of ball they were capable of, which in itself was a gratifica- tion 'to the eight thousand spectators. Technically Fostoria won l to 0. Still playing unbeatable football Bowling Green was beaten 42 to 0. St. Marys, W. Va., was next after a hard game we won 13 to 6. Playing a poor brand of football, on Thanksgiving Day. we were able to beat Sandusky 13 to 12. West Aurora, Ill., in a post-season game, defeated Findlay 20 to 6. They had a fast, hard team and out-played Findlay throughout most of the game. This season was perhaps not the most successful, the team losing its three important games, yet the team played fairly well in most of the games and with a bunch of scrappy young players we should look forward to the season next year in which Findlay will have a team that will be among the best in the country. It has always been the custom to give each player mention in the Blue and Gold so I will endeavor to give you my best. I believe in dealing with facts and I am sure every player would rather know that what is said of him is the writer's honest opinion than to have him use a lot of beautiful adjectives which mean nothing. Paul Dye played quarter-back most of the season. He was playing out of position here but in spite of this handicap was the main ground gainer of the team. He graduates this year after completing four years as a Varsity player. Bill Andrews, another four-year man, played a guard position. Although not a giant in size he was a fighter every minute of the game and his brains and aggressiveness made him easily the star of the line. Hards played at guard most of the year and with his size was a valuable man. Hards is also a four-year man. Leary, another big man, was either a guard or tackle as he was needed. He was a hard man to get around and should look forward to a big year next season. Mervin Dye was the regular center and although handicapped much by injuries was a tower of strength on the line. He is the captain-elect for 192.3 and the team should make a wonderful showing under him. Sands at full back was a great player but was not at his best in several of the games. His defensive work as well as line plunging made him a valuable man. He will be re- membered most for his work in the Fostoria and Bowling Green games. Lang at half back was a fast man and when going good was hard to stop. He was especially good on off tackle drives and on receiving passes. This is his last year. Marquette, a half back, showed that he could be counted on in the pinches by the way in which he would tear into the other team after he had taken some one's place. He should go big next fall. Leader and Pressnell were quarter backs who showed much promise but the former quit the squad in the middle of the year. Pressnell, a Freshman, looks like he would develop into a fine quarterback in another year. He is also a good kicker and passer. D Schuchardt's regular position was tackle but he was put wherever he was needed and played in almost every position some time during the season. He distinguished him- self especially in the Fostoria game. He will be with us for some time yet. Ed Misamore was a center and with his two hundred pounds of beef could always be counted on to do his best when put into a game. John Andrews was an end and a very dependable one, too. He was good on receiv- Page Fifty THE BLUE AND GOLD ing passes and was a hard tackler. John and his brother Bill with their aggressiveness earned the title of "The Fightin' Andrew Brothers." Hendricks at the other end was another scrappy player. He was small but a hard tackler and was fighting every minute he was in the game. Mains was a tackle. He is young and doubtless there are many things he could learn about his position but he showed a willingness to learn and also a natural talent for the game. In his remaining two years he should develop into a wonderful tackle. Capell also played tackle. He informed the world that he could play football in the St. Marys game when he broke through and tackled the man with the ball four successive times for a loss. Earl Misamore played end this year. He was a hard worker and after two years on the scrubs made his letter. His long punts were his specialty. Mr. Bowman is entitled to the gratitude of the school and team for his tireless efforts to make everything go along smoothly and successfully in his role as faculty manager. Richard Firmin and Carmen Edwards, as student managers, set a high standard of efh- ciency in their positions. Doc Thomas, the trainer, again proved his worth and worked energetically at keep- ing the squad in the best of shape. Brucklacher, his assistant, was a great help. The Reserve Squad played several games with Carey, McComb, Rawson and Ar- lington but failed to register any victories. Much promising material was uncovered during the season from this bunch. The players who made the Reserve were Vorhees, Young, Burrell, Terrell, Gladhardt, Leader, Emerson, Grotty, Strauch, Wfilliams, Eaut, Orndorf, Hollington, Glessner, Hammond. Powell, O. Mains, Foster, Allen, Brown, Fellers.

The season ended with a most enjoyable banquet tendered to the Findlay and the Aurora teams at the Elks Club by the Findlay Lodge of Elks which was largely attended by Elks business men and fans. The chief event of the evening was a fine talk given by Dr. Jack Wilce, the head coach of Ohio State University. He emphasized clean sports- manship and need of loyalty to the State University. Various speeches were given. Colonel Ralph D. Cole acted as toastmaster. The entertainment was furnished by comed- ians from Toledo. Following the banquet the Findlay team elected Mervin Dye as Captain for 1923. In 'behalf of the football team I would like to say that they are most grateful for this splendid courtesy. -NEWTON PRIDDY, '23.

Some were Page Fifty-three THF. BLUE AND GGLD rather doubtful about our chances for we only had one letter man back. But those who knew Our Coach were certain that he would turn out a good team. So practice started, but the team was handicapped by being able to practice only wice a tweck. They worked hard and soon began o show signs of a team. We hope next year to be able to practice every night in our new gym. So on January the 15th a young and inexperienced team, yet one that has been taught to fight hard, was pitted against the fast Leipsic team for the initial game of the season. The Season Jan. 5-Findlay, 17g Leipsic, 23. Although the entire team tried hard, we were defeated in the First game. Eleven men were used in this game, in order to see how they acted while they were in a real game. Jan. 12-Findlay, 175 Bluffton, 18. The lineup for this game was changed considerably. Leader and Pressnell start- ing forwards, Sattler at center, Priddy and Vorhees at guards. This was one of the cleanest and hardest fought battles of the year. At the end of the game the score stood 16 to 16. But in the extra period they caged a field goal while we were only able to make one foul. We lost. jan. 19-Findlay, 271 Bowling Green, 15. VVith the same lineup but a little wiser team, we defeated the Bowling Green quintet for the first victory of the season. Captain Priddy and Leader shared the honors of the evening, each shooting hve from the field. The defense of the team was also noticeable. On Jan. 20 Lima Central came to our town with a tall, husky team. The team fought hard but were outclassed. Lima left us with the short end of the score. Feb. Z-Findlay, 22, Kenton, 18. This time we travelled to Kenton with not many hopes but with determination to try. VVe were greatly handicapped because "Bob" was sick and could not come with us. At the end of the first half Kenton was leading 1-1 to 8, but in the second half the old Findlay High Spirit rose up and we beat them 22 to 18. Sattler, who was in the game only a little while, caged five baskets. Feb. 3-Findlay, 205 Doane Academy, 25. On the next night after the Kenton game, Doane came to our fair city only to leave us, a few hours later, just five points behind. The score being 20 to 25. Leader caged five baskets, Dye at center, two. Ten men were used in trying to win. Feb. 9-Findlay, 15, Columbus West, 27. Columbus sent a fast team here. They shot from all angles on the Hoor and made them. It was no disgrace to be beaten by this team as they went to the semi-finals in the state tournament. Only by fighting did the team hold the score down to 27 to 15. Feb. 16-Findlay, 223 Bowling Green, 27. This was our first return game. The team was crippled because Capt. Priddy could not be with them. The game was lost by the close score Z7-22. Feb. 17-Findlay, 28: Bluffton, 19. On Feb. 17 we played our return game with Bluffton. This was a very interesting and clean game, The team was working fine that tight. So the score ended ZS to 19. Leader shot six baskets, Pressnell and Sattler two. Feb. 22-Findlay, 305 Arcadia, 18. Arcadia came to Findlay on Feb, 22, expecting to do the same thing they did last year. But this did not happen. Arcadia did not score a held goal the first half. The game was easily won. Burket, a su-b, chopping Five in. Bowling Green Tournament March 2-Findlay, 273 VVoodward, 26. This game was close and exciting at all times. But at the final sound of the whistle Findlay was one point better. March 3-Findlay, 16, Bowling Green, 17. Both teams fought hard for the chance in finals. All through the game Bowling Green was three or four points ahead, but in the five minutes the team gave their last ounce of strength but did not quite make it. March 9-Findlay, 143 Lima Central, 38. At the end of the first half the score stood 8-11. But in the second half the team was overwhelmed. March 16-Findlay, 5, Kenton, 24. Kenton came to our big city on March 16 with revenge in their hearts and they got it. March Z4-Findlay, 73 Scott, 36. The Friday before this game, the school really showed the team they cared whether they won or lost. So on the next night the gym was packed. I think every one will Page Fifty-four THE BLUE AND GGLD agree that every member of the team fought as hard as he could. The score at the end of the first quarter was 6 to 4. But soon Scott found themselves and the best team won. Sattler and Dye made Findlay two field goals. THE TEAM Captain Priddy At the close of the second game the team chose "Neut" as their Captain. All through the season "Neut" played the game as a Captain should. He was always fast and never seemed to slack up or lose his pep. He could almost always be depended upon for one or more baskets each game. We are all sorry that we lose him. J. Leader "Jack" was the fastest man on the team, and caused considerable trouble to teams who tried to catch him when once he got loose. During the season Jack scored the most points of any man on the team, by scoring 92 out of the total 280 points. NVhenever he shot at the basket it almost was sure to go in or come very close. jack is one of the Stars who will be missed next season. F, Pressnell "Tot" was Leader's running mate and was the foul shooter of the team. His passing was very good and helped much in scoring. He also was a high man in scoring by shooting 15 buckets and -ll fouls. The best of it is, that he is only a Freshman and will be with us for three more years. Carl Sattler "Droopy" played the center position in superior style. W'hen the ball was started down the floor. you would always see "Droopy" coming out to meet it and to pass it to some one under the basket. He has two more years in school, so we will wait till later to say more about him. Mervin Dye "Merve" was one of these men who can always be depended upon to be there when he is needed. He figured largely in smashing up the teamwork of the opponents. It al- ways was a nice feeling to have "Herve" standing back of you ready to drop anyone coming near the basket. Again, I am glad to say he has two more seasons to play. M. Vorhees It is hard to apologize for myself. so I w'll leave this space blank. Errold Struble Struble was one of the faithful members of the team. He always gave all he had while he was in the games, but always seemed to play in hard luck. He has one more season and if he ever gets started you will see something. Nile Sheller Sheller was always ready and willing to do what he was asked for the benefit of the team. During the season he played in most every position, Wlhile he was in the game his passing and teamwork was commendable. He is only a Sophomore. Frank Hoyer Hoyer was a center and caused very much trouble to Sattler who had to work hard to keep Hoyer from his position on the lirst team. He had a very good eye for the bucket and with more experience would have made an ideal player. He will not be with us next season, since he graduates. Lynn McClelland "Mac" is a man about six feet tall. NVhen the ball hit the bank board, you would always see him reach up with his long arms. grab the ball, pivot and then pass down the Hoor. He always played his hardest but lacked the necessary experience. He will be missed very much next year. Learey, Wisner and Misamore "Gub." "'Wisey" and "Messy" are a combination that are feared by some of the country schools. They were the main stays of the reserve team. In weight they almost make a team by themselves. All of the three are juniors and will be out next year to give the first team men a run for their positions. POINTS MADE BY "OUR STARS" G. F. G.P.

At last Findlay High School has a Girls' Basketball Team. For a long time the femin'ne element of F. H. S. have longed to be represented, athletically speaking, for hadn't the girls made good in debate? But everything seemed to go against them until one day we got the news that our beloved t?j friends over at Fostoria were organizing a basketball team. All the spunk and rivalry in our veins sprang up and we resolved that we loyal students of Findlay High would never let Fostoria get a single step ahead o us! XVhen Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Matteson heard our pleas they both proclaimed that Findlay High School should have a girls' basketball team. That very same week the call for candidates was issued and the first practice found some 30 or 40 girls .fighting to represent their school. Miss Jenkins undertook the task of molding a winning aggre- gation out of green material for no more than two of us had ever played under girls' r11les and many had never as much as witnessed a girls' game. lVe began to work earnestly, for the season was now about half gone, trying to learn how to pivot, give the ball English, fool our guards, etc., and after two practices we took on the strong, experienced team from Bee Gee and lost 11 to 4. Qur defeat was not altogether unexpected because of the fact that Bee Gee has always been represented by a good team and this year's team was no exception to the rule. VVhile the boys were winning at Kenton we were losing at Arlington. The score was 13 to 1. But there is always a silver lining to every dark cloud and F. H. S. took the Arcadia girls into camp. NVe won 6 to 4. Next we visited Bee Gee for a return game but the visit was not of the delightful type for they sent us home with the small end of a 15 to 5 score. Arlington was the next one on the program and they made their clinch on the Hancock County Championship tighter by 'beating us 17 to 0. Although we lost all but one of our games a foundation for a winning team next year has been laid and we'll be out to seek revenge from the Bowling Green team for the double drubbing handed us this year. The team wfshes to express its gratitude to Miss Jenkins for helping the girls to get started and sincerely hopes that it will be possible for her to coach us next year. The team also wishes to thank Mr. Fletcher and Mr. Matteson for their hearty co-operation. Isabel Loy Isabel plays a fine game as forward and when it comes to shooting fouls she can't be beat. ' Rachel Hoffman "HutTy" was elected captain and played such a game as one would expect the captain to play. Mary Leary Mary played a great game at center and as she's only a Freshie we'll have her for Clfontinned on Page Seventy-four.J Page Fifty-six THE BLUE AND GOLD P g F'fty THE BLUE AND GOLD fr, fV,, N .

CRITICISM OF THE WORK OF NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE Findlay, Ohio, March 4, 1923. My dear Mr. Hutson: I was rummaging among some old family papers this afternoon and very much to my surprise an old envelope. yellowed by age, slipped from behind the drawer in which I was examining the contents. The envelope contained a letter to my grandfather Peck from a Mr. Smythe, a critic on the Atlantic Souvenir from 1820-1860 and an enthusiastic admirer of the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hawthorne contributed numerous articles to his magazine. It was quite a lengthy letter but some of the thongllts were so interesting and apropos of present times that I will quote a few extracts 'This man Hawthorne," says Smythe, "is a retiring rather than an aggressive fellow, but whether he mingles with the world or not his stories and essays are travelling from sea to sea on the Continent. At First, the public was prone to reject his stories, especially that charming volume of 'Twice Told Tales, on the pretext that they are too slow and lack act'on. However, I am inclined to think that the public of another generation will appreciate the beauty of style and grace with which not only this volume is written but also that set of stories and essays from the Old Mansef' Personally, I think Mr. Smythe's prophecy has come true, especially in the case of the "Stories from an Old Mansef' I think this set of stories is unusually good for young people to study because the simple, smooth and straightforward style should be an exam- ple for young aspiring authors. His deliberate, careful study produced a characteristic style. an art much coveted 'by authors. One of Hawthorne's characteristics is the use of the allegory for preaching truths. If Sinclair Lewis had seen ht to picture the humdrum life of a small town by allegory or a flight of the imagination instead of by dry, cutting criticisms, perhaps we small town folks would have been more willing to change our set waysg and Mr. Lewis would have escaped a heavy shower of criticism. Farther in his letter Mr. Smythe spoke more in detail of a few of the stories from the "Old Mansef' " 'The Celestial Railroad'," reads the letter, "is commendable because it preaches a sermon applicable for any or all of the Fifty-two Sundays of the year, and it has less tedium than the usual Sunday discourse. VVhile I am on the subject of morals Page Fifty-nine Dadwabwm To 'chase who Qollow us LR H'lEL5U1!'S is wma L5 Hua! Blum and Uolci dwxaledi. 1114115 UW umqog, CU1LiPf'0fi,t bg ULULF Raw aivafctagasv. THE BLUE AND GOLD I might mention 'Feather Top: A Moralized Legend,' a story with a truth that fits us older folks as well as the youngsters who are apt to think that clothes 'make the man.' "I met a young fellow the other day who had failed in love because he refused to change from a Presbyterian to a Methodist. I directed him to a public library and said, 'Sonny, ask the librarian for "Hawthorne's Intelligence Office" and read it." The next day he returned and said, 'VVell, Mr. Smythe, Hawthorne is right. Too many of us make a big fuss over the petty affairs in life and let the "pearl of great price" slip through our fingers unnoticedf "Mr. Hawthorne is a humorist, too! The story 'Drown's XVooden Image' has rollick- ing fun and yet a pith o' sense in it, too. Wie all acknowledge sooner or later that we have accomplished the most in life when inspired by love." I fear, Mr. I-Iutson, my letter is long and wearisome but I do want to quote what Mr. Smythe says about "Sketches from Memory," t'The Artist of the Beautiful" and "Sir Roger Malvin's Burial." Of the sketches he says: "This is a descriptive essay and con- sists of three sketches brim full of descriptive passages and poetic phrases. I think it is the 'best description I have read in years!" He speaks of the "Artist of the Beautiful" like this: "The theme of this story is transcendental, showing the characteristics of this philosophy when the artist's conception of the beautiful is fulfilled." And he tells of a personal experience he had when he read "Sir Roger Malvin's Burial." "It was a dramatic story," he said, "and as I read it dramatized its self so vividly that when I put the book away for the night, I dreamed I was Sir Roger and was left unburied in the woodsf, I wonder, Mr. Hutson, if Hawthorne or Mr. Smythe imagined that in sixty-three years the enthusiasm for Hawthorne would increase rather than decrease? It seems so refreshing to sit down for a rest and read a quiet, charming character sketch like Haw- thorne's "Old Apple Dealer' when in these days the modern magazines offer as their best story. a plot of two murders and a second-hand love affair. Of course, I must not censure the modern writers too harshly for the present public love thrill and smash and action and authors must live. But how I do wish that the large majority of our writers instead of a small minority would write for the sake of developing an art in writing and promoting higher ideals and let this blood and thunder be shown the door. I am sure I have written much too long a letter to be digested in one reading. I beg your pardon, humbly. May I hope to hear your opinion on modern novelists in the very near future? Adieu, RUTH FULLER. GIRLS "O wad some power the giftie gie us To see ourselves as others see us!" Did you ever ascend the assembly room platform and glance over the occupants on the east side, who are assembled there to study? If you never have you would find it quite interesting to do so. As your eyes wander over the crowd your attention is attracted first by the expres- sions of their faces. Some are long, while others are fixed with a broad smile. As you study each face more carefully the most prominent feature seems to be the nose. There are many different models of noses. For instance, there is the Roman nose which is very stern, and the Grecian nose noted for its beautiful classic design: and then the "pug" nose, which is rather small and creeps down ostentatiously from the forehead, and leaps joyfully upward at the southern terminus, giving the owner a rather saucy expression. You may also see Hat spreading noses and weird wandering noses all of which are occa- sionally Hdolled up" with powder by their respective owners. , The next feature to arrest your attention is that cherry-red opening directly south of that great divider of the face. It is commonly called the mouth, the hardest worked organ of all. Some are very large and homely, wandering across the face in a most dis- orderly and unattractive fashion, while others are small, dainty and pretty as if they had been fashioned by an artist for the sole purpose of being kissed. In the making of the fair sex the control of the mouth was evidently a failure as it often remains open at the most inopportune times, allowing conversation to escape which should have been safely "bottled up" back of the ears. You must be careful, however. when looking over the crowd that your eyes are not caught by the bewitching glance of the eyebrow, a little wink of the eye has sent many a man down the long aisle of the church to the altar where he meets his doom. You cannot overlook that light covering of the head known as the hair. My, there are so many colors. You see black hair, brown hair, auburn, bronze, red and then you are always sure to see a blonde. It is amazing to note the different ways the girls dress their hair. Since so many have bobbed hair you may notice that there are various styles Page Sixty THE BLUE 'AND ooLb in cutting it. Some wear it Buster Brown fashion, perhaps in memory of the Round Heads who lived years ago. Others wear it snarled up till it appears almost like a rat's nest, but they cannot see themselves as others see them, for the mirror lies and lies. It is impossible for you to deny that some bobbed haired girls are beautiful and attractive. The girls who do not have bobbed hair tix their hair in a great variety of rolls, coils, loops, braids, puffs, waves, waterfalls, cascades and colonnades. Yet you must give the girls credit for arranging their hair in such an attractive manner. It remains a question as to what some would think if they could see themselves as others see them. It is seldom that you see the ears, but that is no sign they are not there for a girl can usually hear more than the ordinary man. Although the ears are, in most cases, out of sight they are decorated with the ornament known as the earring. These come in a variety of shapes and forms and are useful in keeping the head well balanced. Oh, what a gift it would be could we but see ourselves as others see us. -DICK BLACKBURN. BOYS Have you ever heard of this little saying: "VVhat are little girls made of? Sugar and spice and everything nice. But what are little boys made of? Snaps and snails and puppy dog tails." XVell, that's the very thing these objects or human being called "boys" are made of. They are snippy or snappy in their tastes, slow as snails deciding and as changeable as a puppy dog's tail, which has a tendency to keep on the move. Now, there are different speciesg the genuine "he flapperf' the Rudolph Valentino type and the all around good sport. The lirst is distinguished by his belle shaped trousers, marcelled hair, and cake-eater stride. The second by his straight caporlarized hair, wistful look and captivating smile, while the third is distinguished by his plain, neat-fitting suit. his crop of hair growing like hair should grow, and his normal mental capacity. Yet he is not one of the kind who in order to express himself would say, "The ramifications of your mentality are too obtuse for the cogitatious of my intuitive facilities" when he simply means "I don't understand you." Clothing seems to be the ideal of some and the least of the worries of others. IVhen you observe that a boy wears the same tie for weeks at a time and that his trousers look as though they had not come in contact with an iron for some length of time, you can be confident that he is of the latter type. These are usually the kind that look at their books more than at the east side of the Assembly. Hut did you ever see one of the other type who wasn't casting side-long glances in that direction? XVhy they are even so bold as to walk to the front of the room two or three times a period, pick up any book, turn around, pat down their hair, and see if any one is admiring them, then if they find the atmosphere favorable quickly knit their brows in the deepest of thought. The only conclusion that can be drawn on this subject is that they are funny things, even deserving of pity. If some of them only knew the opinions of the onlookers, they would blush for shame. But to save this embarrassment, it is altogether fitting and proper that we should refrain from mentioning them. You all know them. -LOUISE ASKAM, '24, AN EPISODE OF THE TERROR It was the time of the French Revolution. The common people were stirred up to the highest pitch of rebellion. I, with many relatives and friends, was in a large fortress of my father's for safety. I happened to be in the large hall, at the time this incident, which I am about to relate, occurred. A door leading into a small anteroom stood wide open and through it I could see the huge outer doors tightly closed. Part of the people in the castle were asleep-those who guarded at night-in small rooms off the balcony of the adjoining hall. The rest were quietly talking of the times, fthe most of the women with needleworkj or were outside acting as guards. As I was dreamily watching those huge outer doors, the locks clicked and the doors swung slowly back to admit an excited guard. "They're coming! They're coming! Come men, quick!" Everyone knew the significance of this, and soon everything was in an uproar. The women were sent into the far corner of the inner room. I was overlooked, so I stationed myself so that I could see out of a window that was level with the ground but high above my head, since the floor of the castle was somewhat low. Soon all the guards came in and the outer doors were locked. After stationing a few men in the small outer room, the other men locked the door between and took posi- tions at the points where defense was most needed. Watching, with strained eyes, through my small window to catch any signs of the enemy, and listening, I heard shouts of men and women. Soon I could hear a tramp, tramp, tramp of many feet t"quite an orderly mob," I thought? and could see the ragged skirts ofthe women and the loose garments of the men passing the window. This con- tinued for a, long time. The huge outer doors were attacked-but they held. I heard yells and screams in the next hall and running to the door, I beheld such a Page Sixty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD sight! My friends being taken from their beds and thrown from the balcony to the floor below. for the mob had gained entrance. It was a horrible sight tovsee. People were being trampled under foot by women. Their flying hair, their rolled up sleeves, their skinny arms, their claw-like hands, bearing weapons of all sorts and kinds, seemed to make it more frightful. I stood watching this scene for ages. it seemed. At last. a woman whom I at once recognized as Madame Defarge, the leader of the women. spied me and darted down the stairs toward me. I ran up the opposite stairs and she followed, up and down stairs, stairs that I didn't know were in the fortress. I hid, she hunted until she found me and the chase was on again. She chased, and chased, and chased. It was terrible. Sometimes she threw out her knife and scratched me. Now she was gaining. now I was leaving her behind. After a while we came to a passage way where there was a stairway on both sides. I went up on one side and she went up the other, thinking that she was following me. I made a noise, and hearing me she immediately turned and was after me again. NVe came to a small landing with a table in the center. She was on one side of the table thrusting her knife at me on the other side. Did she catch me? Oh, what a dream! -LORAINE EDXVARDS, NO-NOT GOSSIP "Suppose you hide under the bed or in some other convenient corner in Nan's room, and promise that you'll never tell anyone a word of what happens. There I'll let you stayg you may hear something that will amus-er-interest you." Jean Abtbot, Madge Bowman, Jenny Kent and I were spending the night with Nan, and were in her room owing to the fact that the living rooms were variously occupied by her elder sister Bernice and her very special friend, and a bunch of kids raising a rumpus practically all over the house. VVe had departed to the upper regions in disdain immedi- ately upon the arrival of Bird's and Eleanor's younger friends. A scent of hot fudge perfumed the air. This with the pleasant atmosphere of the room, and the knowledge that we would soon be blissfully content in browsing over a box of cheese sandwiches. the fragrant fudge, and washing these ingredients down the little red lane with some excellent grape juice-that. and nothing more-lent a feeling of content to the assembled body of worldly wise and weary school girls, and loosened our tongues-if such were needed. After the moment of suspense when Nan tested and poured out the fudge we again drew our breath with ease. Jenny broke out, "Oh, boy, that fudge smells good-when do we get some? Nan's been testing it till it's most gone. Now I get to take the first biteg I'll tell you if it's good or not." "Oh, yes! if it's good or not-imagine Jenny turning down anything that's fit to eat," from Madge. "That's merely fit to eat? Just for that. Smudge, you'll not get to lick the spoon. Oh say, Dot, have you seen that perfectly killing fellow in my geometry class? Well, the other 'day when Miss Keller called on him to demonstrate a theorem, he turned a whole scad of colors, and finally shuffled up to the board. XVhen he finally found a pointer, he knocked down a couple erasers, and broke two big pieces of chalk all to smithereens, Everyone snickered. but he got up the nerve to go on. All went well until his voice broke on an angle: then everyone roared. But say, I admire his spunk! He gulped but went on, and when he'd finished he'd made a perfectly brilliant recitation. Everyone felt as if he'd like to crawl under his seat, and when Fatty Lane was called on next the was ring leader in the fun-makingj he made the most awkward sight and recita- tion of the day. Then everyone grinned, and Don Allen looked relieved. One wild recitation period, I'll say." "But listen! I want to tell you what I saw the other day," chimed in Jean. "Just last night when Bill and I were coming home, we walked past Daley's where Miss Alden stays. You know she has a front room with a balcony over the front porch. VVell, we were walking along-" "Star-gazing," supplemented Madge. Jean gave her a pitying glance, and went on. "As I said before, we were walking along, and I happened to look toward the balcony. Guess what I saw?" Now I must explain that we girls have always been dreadfully interested in Miss Alden ever since she came. lfVe cooked up romance, for her. and when she took a room at Daley's-the room, the room with a balcony-we were tickled to death. Romeo and Juliet, don't you know? This accounts for the suspense with which we waited her answer. After Jean asked the question, everyone glanced significantly at everyone else in un- believing wonder. Jenny even stopped with a huge piece of chocolate suspended in mid air, and her mouth wide open feither to receive it, or the newsl. Then Jean said, "At first I thought it was a man climbing over the rail of the balcony. lfVe walked past very Page Sixty-two THE BLUE AND GOLD slowly and kept looking up. We heard giggles and finally managed to see that it was a girl hanging over, her feet slipping when she tried to climb over it. There were several people up on the balcony holding on and laughing-they acted kind of crazy, so we decided it was nothing serious, and walked on. It certainly looked suspicious." Jenny looked rather disappointed but continued to digest this information along with the candy. "If someone were in danger or dire distress, you and Bill would walk-" But the rest was smothered when a pillow hit the offender squarely in the face. Everyone had been all keyed up for something terribly romantic, so we were a little bit peeved when ,lean shattered all our high hopes. She thinks she's so smart because she caught Bill when everyone in school was perfectly wild over him, so she flaunts him in our faces every chance she gets. Probably the only reason she told us about that was because she wanted us to know she'd had a date that night. Of course the incident was a good excuse, only it didn't end right. We were all busy eating and drinking, then I guess what Jean had told us peeved us, because Jenny grouched out, "Hey, Nan, lead me to the hayg I'm ready to hit it hard right now. Got a headache. tThe eats were nearly done, and anyway jenny'd had her share-she had a right to have a headachej. Immediately upon preparing for bed, she took her half, but that happened to be the middle. For a while we made all kinds of extravagant schemes for a camping trip, but waxed too enthusiastic, and Nan's mother came to the door. The next few minutes no one breathed. Then from the next room came a cautious whisper, "Hey, Nan, what d'yu think of that Bertha Hull's new lid?" 'WVhy I think it's a perfect freak! Imagine wearing a red hat with that flame colored hair. One would think she'd use a little taste in getting clothes. Goodness knows her dad has plenty of cash," came back in an indignant whisper. Then ,lenny vent her ire so emphatically on the subject in such powerful stage whispers that she brought forth many suggestions, "For my sake, Jenny, do exercise some self-control. I promise you a well-aimed pillow if you don't." "Hey, Dot, can't you squelch her?" "Oh, she's a pain! XVe'll all get kicked out." To all of which Jenny gave a snor of grand disdain and pompously turned her ample back in my direction. But all this was soon either forgiven or forgotten and ,lenny broke the silence, "Say, gang. what ya think of Miss Elridge and her little penny dog?" Giggles and snickers threatened to become more. Finally someone regained herself far enough to say, "They're utterly impossible! If I couldn't do any better than that, I'd give up for good. Wfhenever I see tall, solemn Miss Elridge and that little freckle-faced crumb strolling around dead to the world, I want to pinch myself to see if I'm really awake." "Yeah, it's only in dreams you see such sights," agreed Jenny. "Say, you know that new girl that sits two seats in front of nie, three rows over? The other day I hap- pened to look her direction, and say, she's got the funniest profile. Never saw anything like it-certainly the bee's knees!" We all agreed to this. "You know Betty Raene and her crowd have taken her up. I'd hate to do that." "Yes, sir! She's in my Sunday School class, and well-I think it'd be best to wait. -lean gave a snore, announcing to the world that she was asleep. But our conversa- tion never lagged. Jenny had one bright idea. "VVhat say, gang, I get my allowance tomorrow. I'll back a feed at the corner." "Ch, Jenny, you're there with the goods!" "Say, Madge, what do you think of Kathryn Burns?" "Humph! That's easy-I hate a gossip." "Yes, that's one thing I like about this crowd: we never gossip," I said. This point was not disputed, and just before I dropped off a murmur came from the sleeping Jean, "Hey-gang. Lamp-Giddies'-freakish-hose." -MARY HILTY. OVERHEARD IN MR. FINTON'S DESK "Yes, I'n1 a Sophomore note," said a sheet of note paper to its nearest neighbor. "No, you mean you are a note written by a Sophomore. I was written by a Senior and my friend here was written by a Junior. 'VVe are very proud to be written by such important people," answered the neighbor. "Well, just because you had your face written all over by a Senior doesn't mean that you are any better paper than I am. Besides, the message on my face is every bit as important as that on your face. Besides you will very likely have the same fate as I. All my brothers and sisters were torn up and thrown in the tire or scattered to the four winds." "Well, how do you know they were? You were not along." "Well, at least I think they were, for they never came backf, Page Sixty-three THE BLUE AND GOLD "Oh! little Sophomore, if you only knew what it says on your face, you would blush with shame," said the Junior note. - "Remember, you can't read what is on your face, junior. If you could-well-l don't know what would happen." "Read it then. I' ni curious to know." "It says: 'My dearest Mary-Are you mad? If you aren't why don't you answer my notes? XfVill you go to the Opera with me, de'-' Oh! I can't read it. It's too silly." And the Sophomore note laughed loudly. "Hush," said the Senior in a low tone. "NVhy?" asked the Sophomore. "Because Mr. Finton is coming and if he should hnd us, he'd maybe, tear us up like he did your sisters." "Oh! well we might as well die now as any time. Wfhere were you two found? Miss Cherrington found me lying in the hall. And just think," in an awed tone, "she opened me up and read me." "How shocking! Miss Snow found me on a typewriting desk. I'll bet the owner got Hail Columlbiaf'-this was from the Junior note. "Miss Littleton found me sticking out of a boy's pocket and she-ohl here is Mr. Finton. VVell, goodbye, friends. I see where my destination is the furnace. Adieu, until we meet again, out on the ash pile." -KATHRYN DICKINSON, 'Z5. THE OLD SWIMMIN' HOLE Stately trees overhang a certain by-road guarding the approach to the Blanchard River which cuts through the road a little ahead. From the bridge one may look down stream about hfty rods and see the old "Swimmin' Hole." Right in plain view by the road-side near the river bridge is a sign bearing these words: "Private-No Hunting or Fishing Allowed." Oh! what could be pleasanter or more fun during the heat of summer than to go to this old place for a swim. It is here that you can throw care aside during a blissful half hour or hour spent with the rest of the neighbor boys and forget the weariness brought on by the day's toil. Then suddenly above the shout of laughter and the splashing of water comes the cry, "Say fellows, any fish in there?" Of course you don't know and you say so, and you ask if they did not see the sign. But apparently these people have little regard for signs, for they settle themselves comfortably on the rocks beside some over-hanging VVillows, a short distance from the bathers and begin their patient wait. Oh yes, you know they shouldn't be there, but it is none of your crowd and the merriinent continues. The land owner quite mysteriously appears. Jests and laughter die on parted lips. For this man has a way of making things quite uncomfortable for others when he wants to. Not having a son of his own and forgetting that he once liked to swim, shouts and splash, his glance is quite disapproving. As he notices the quiet that his presence brings, the firm lines about his mouth relax and he nearly smiles. VVhen ah, he sees a rod and a line on the other side of the willows beingslowly drawn from the water. He does not see the Violator but gives each boy that angry look and yel'ls, f'Get out of here." Then each boy scrambles up the bank, through the willows, pulls on his clothes and with hasty whispered farewells makes a break for home. Unfair to the boys? yes, for they have to suffer because some one else deliberately lished where they were requested not to. The last few years the boys don't even go there to swim for something has been added to the sign. It now reads: "Private-No hunting, fishing or swimming allowed- Keep Out." -STANLEY JOHNSTON, AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOOK "No, you're mistaken again, I'm not a history of the world, only a common Spanish Grammar, and one of a thousand, but even I may have a story to tell. "I was sold last September to Bob. His real name is Vernon but everybody calls him Bob. Since I came into his possession I have learned much about High School u ils. p D "The hrst thing Bob said when he saw me was 'Eighty-seven cents for that book? Outrageous, I call it. I'l'l be hanged if I'll pay it.' He did pay it just the same though. At first he was very much interested in me, and I thought maybe he and I were going to get along hne, but I soon changed my mind. He'd only had me two days when he bent my back and say, you ought to have heard it snap. I suppose you did though. it was loud enough to be heard for two blocks around. g "Since then I have been leading a dog's life. He slams and throws, and bends me so that I often wonder how I ever keep together. Another thing I don't like is he puts all his papers and everything else into meg and makes me look 'like a balloon instead of Page Sixty-four THE BLUE AND GOLD the respectable book I am. Soon after he had me he started writing Vernon Burns, V. B., all through me, until now there's more of his scribbling than print in nie. "I really don't think that fellow knows a good picture when he sees one. I've got some wonderful masterpieces in me. QI don't mean to brag, of coursej and he's changed every one of them into something else. He took the "Hall of the Abencerragesu and made a barroom of it, and the "Cathedral," and made a road house of it. and goodness knows what all he did do. "After school was out he tock me home and put me in the cellar, and there I had to staf all summer. I was very sorry when I had to leave the cellar, when school opened again. It was so cool and quiet down there. "His sister has nie now and I like her a lot better than Bob. She's erased very nearly everything Bob wrote in me, but I suppose she'll soon be marking me all up like Bob did. "I've been thrown, slammed and shaken up all my life but I'm not wholly unhappy. I often wonder, though, why pupals never like me after about the first month of school." -HENRY BROXVNE. THE TIME FIEND About six weeks ago I visited my friend, John Smith, who had an astonishing idea. The gist of it was that time is merely relative, and if the relation is changed, time is changed. My friend said that he was close upon a method for changing the relation, even perhaps to the extent of abolishing time entirely. Yesterday he called up my mother and said that I was to be sure to come to his house in the evening. I went. On my arrival I was astonished at the change in his room. Only a stand in the center of the room with a small metal box on it remained. John wore a heavy overcoat although the room was warm. He forced me to put one on also and then opened the box. The contents of the box, a greenish-yellow gas, rose rapidly. The temperature fell, and our watches and the clock stopped. Today the world has stopped-that is as far as time is concerned. Since there is no time, it has taken none to write this. My friend is now working on a method for starting time again. Let us hope he succeeds for Frank said that he would pay back that two bits on Wlednesday. and as it is, XVednesday never comes. -KENNETH HYB.-XRGER. ONE MAY BE GOOD, BUT- Someone will take your p'ace when you are gone, VVi'll come as you to face the morning mail, Hear the small talk and bear the burden on, And in his care the venture will not fail.

It is true not only that, "Music hath charms to sooth the savage breast," as the poet said, but it also has been discovered that music has a very charming effect on wild animals as well. I never knew this until one day when I was "listening in" to the tales of an old traveler as he related them to me. He had included in his journeys a visit to the tropical regions. It was there that he had had the experience which I am about to tell to you and which demonstrates the truth of the statement that music really does have an influence over animals, even reptiles. "XVell, you know that down in the tropics there is a rank growth of vegetation. Most of the trees have vines growing on them which climb up their trunks, then out on the branches. and then hang down swaying back and forth when a slight breeze reaches them. W'hat an inviting scene this would be to a weary traveler on a tropical day in -Iulyl "And so it was to my companion and me. We took shelter from the burning sun under a tree similar to the one I have just described. My friend had brought his violin along in case we needed any other amusement than the surroundings of our resting place. After having dfscussed the vegetation about us for a while, I asked my friend to strike up a tune. As the instrument produced the harmonious phrases, the breezes seemed to sway the vines in perfect rythum with the music. XVe sat there almost lost in the melodiousness of the music. XVe talked of the effect the music had on the vines. But did I say vines? I must correct myself, No longer were they all vines! In their places were reptiles swaying backward and forward just as the vines had done. Although we did not know it then, we afterwards learned that it is the habit of these tropical reptiles to suspend themselves by their tails from the trees, while they are taking their afternoon naps. A very comfortable position, don't you think? "I said my friend had brought his violin along for extra amusement, but we soon saw that the snakes too were enjoying it. The instant the notes ceased to come from the instrument he snakes swung towards us as if angry or intent upon devouring us. XVhen the playing was resumed they retreated and again began swaying to the rythum of the music. They were on the lookout for our exit however, for if we made the slightest move to indicate that we were trying to get away they began swinging towards us. We saw that it was dangerous to let the music stop or to try to get away. "My friend kept on playing until I thought his arm would drop from sheer exhaus- tion. After playing all the selections he knew he began over again. W'hen quick lively music was played the snakes swung joyfully, as if full of life, but when soft dreamy music was played, they immediately joined in the mood of the music and swayed gently and slowly before us. "As a result of such strenuous-playing a string suddenly snapped. My companion stopped playing and drew a new string. from his pocket, expecting to replace the broken one, but the hostile attitude of the reptiles would not permit it. He resumed playing on three strings, although the snakes did not seem to notice any difference. Nor did they notice a difference when after a while another string snapped, leaving but two strings to play on. He tried playing more softly and more gently so as not to wear the strings out so quickly, but it did not help much for soon the third string broke. Our hearts were in our mouths because of fear. Although the snakes still enjoyed the music, a civilized audience certainly would not have done so. To us the music sounded sweet, CContinued on Page Eighty-three.D Page Sixty-six THE BLUE AND GOLD FINDLAY-LIMA DEBATE On the night of March Z0 in the High School Auditorium before a peaceful woodland drop, on a green carpeted arena, the Findlay and Lima Central High School debating teams crossed words in a battle otAbrains and oratory.

Under the supervision of Professor Thomas Roberts, we have turned out a successful chorus. a successful orchestra, and a successful band. Wie have all been taught music appreciation and have spent happy and worthwhile time in hearing and learning of the real music artists of the world. Underour chorus work comes the Girls' Glee Club, the Boys' Glee Club, Morning Exercises, the Eisteddefod, and the Opera. Our opera, "The Gypsy Rover," was given February 15 and 16 and was enjoyed by everyone who saw it. Our Glee Clubs also deserved their honors,.for good, hard work was spent on them. These clubs at difterent times sang some beautiful and clever songs for the Vtfednesday morning exercises. Qn April-15 at Van VVert, something happened. Sixty chosen pupils from the chorus of Findlay High, were sent ovcr to competelw th four hundred and twenty pupils from seven other schools. This was the Eisteddetod, where the public learned of our talent. As for the orchestra and the band, we are very proud of these organizations. F. H. S. has always been noted for the pleasing and well-trained orchestras that have played before the public at different times. And although our band is onTy two years old, it is growing steadily, and we are sure it is to become famous some day. And so the different organizations of the Music Class of 1923 have been mentioned, and they all spell a word of seven letters-Success. -Jess ALTSCHUL, 23. THE EISTEDDFOD' "Through the maturity of No. 5's voice, through his excellent interpretation, because of his artistic finish, it is with great pleasure that I award him the bass solo," hushed Adjudicator Jones of Cleveland. And who was No. 5? No other than Dick Hosler. Dick set the ball rolling, and nothing could stop us. The next number, the Girls' Trio, was easily won by Ruth Vtfaggoner, Florence Myers and Helen Billstone. Then alolng came the mixed quartet composed of Dick Hosler, Florence Myers, Rudolph Amsler and Nellie Yoxtheimer. Did they win? 1fVell, I should say so! Florence Myers also had the winning spirit and she carried off the honors in the soprano solo, "Until." Last, but not least, our chorus ascended the stage. 1fVhen we finished we thought we ought to have the decision. but would the judge? He did, so our judgment was pretty good. Findlay won hve out of the ten competitive numbers, taking second place in the tenor and falthoj atlo solos, and the Girls' Glee Club. No other school won more than one number. Our total number of points was 113, while our friendly enemy, Van NVert. on'y totalled four points. . Beside the cash prizes, the High School was awarded a beautiful red banner lettered in gold, proclaiming them the winner of the 1923 Eisteddfod. It would scarcely be complete if we didn't mention the good times, especially the car ride home. Did we cheer and sing? Ask Mr. Roberts. VVas the tspj spirit good? Rivaled any football spirit. Can we sing? XVell, we guess sol! WEDNESDAY MORNING EXERCISES XVednesday morning, and all was well. But what was coming now?4fwe wondered. Of course, the Seniors and juniors had a suspicion. for hadn't they been through it be- fore? But the Sophomores looked around in wonder at the teachers coming in from all directions, the door of Room 1 opening, and the occupants from that assembly entering -what was it all about? And then, to top it all off, Professor Roberts came in and sat down in one of the chairs on the rostrum. After all was quiet, Mr. Finton arose from his throne and started to speak. At last the mystery was cleared. and the Sophies learned that they were going to be given a chance to exercise their vocal chords. XVe were bidden to take our chapel hymnals from our desks, turn to a certain page and sing, under the direction of Pro- fessor Roberts, with Miss Betty Brickman at the piano. After a couple of songs, we had sacred reading and prayer. This form of devotion was held every XVednesday morning at eight-thirty o'clock, after which classes were called, and our daily routine began. -JESS ALTSCHUL, '23. Page Seventy VELLSEIHDHO 'S 'H 'H THE BLUE AND GOLD THE BLUE AND GOLD oUR ORCHESTRA "The meeting is called to order," booms the deep and sonorous voice of our most worthy president, Don Corbin. "At this time the secretary-treasurer will call the roll." Up steps his brother Hb officer, Thelma Stough, and in a brusk, business-like tone begins: "Don Corbin. George Edie, Irvin Lefer, A'lice Love, DeLite Ebersole, Lorraine Edwards, Reed Carrothers. Mary Hilty, Don Swisher, Archie johnson, Jeannette Bon- ham, Harriet Runyan, WVilliam Poole, Genevieve Dunn, Florence Myers, Carl Sattler, XVilliam Pifer, Thelma Stougl'1." After each name is heard the usual "Here." Our attendance is always one hundred per cent, for, if we are absent-well, it just means a fine of twenty-five cents. Our 1922-23 debut was made immediately after school began when we gave a pre- lude on the Lecture Course. There followed plays, rhetoricals, miscellaneous programs and in January, we organized with the purpose of combining business and pleasure. But the two big events of the year were, hrst, "The Gypsy Rover" or operetta upon which music we spent much of our exceedingly valuable time: second, the Oriental Party given at the home of our president. The costumes for this party were Japanese and we sat on the Hoor and ate chop suey in regular Chinese fashion-all but the chop sticks twe were afraid we couldn't master this art, "doncha know."j At this time we, the orchestra, wish to express our gratitude to Professor Roberts for his patience and optimism throughout the entire year. appreciativeness and applause at all our public appearances.

H . . . . ,, . . .roast of our first pract ce but Persistency of Spirit VV1ns, is an old adage and with that in mind we finally reached the utmost pinnacle of Success. Professor Chapman took us wading as he called it, and after several attempts at this art we were wading through the most difficult music. In fact we were going to be a Junior Sousa Band. NVE? feel sure that the mellow pep creating music we furnished was one of the direct causes of our gridiron team's wonderful success. The first game on schedule was not honored by our presence but we were in full bloom at the remainer of the games. Word was rumored around that we were to accompany our "Big Brothers," to Scott on October 27. There was no happier bunch of fellows on earth. Sure enough, when October 27 slowly came we were put on a car and shipped off to Scott to show them what wonderful material we had here. You know the results of the game, so all we can say about our trip is that, we had a good time even if we did have to eat hard bis- cuits for lunch at fifty-cents a plate. November 11, was another wonderful day for us, for we know we had first honors for the music furnished and loyalty displayed for our school. The final three games found us ready to render our music in as artistic a style as possible. November 30. was our last chance to help our "Big Brothers" on to a complete victory at Sandusky. With the ending of the football season we disbanded and are now taking our vacation till next September. Our slogan is "A Bigger and Better Band for F. H. S. in the Future." Vtfe wish to thank Roy McMurray and Merlin Hosler for their unt'ring efforts in helping to make our band so successful.

CINVEI 'S 'H 'al THE BLUE AND GOLD tyt THE BLUE AND GQLD, GIRLS' GLEE CLUB If one were to ask, "Just what is the Girls' Glee Club?" should we answer, "The Girls' Glee Club is composed of forty girls with forty good voices." Or should we say. "From the Music Chorus, there are chosen forty girls, sopranos, second sopranos, and altos, who can sing the best." But that sounds concelted, and the girls in the club are anything but conceited. They let other people do the talking about their wonderful work, for instance the time when they sang for the Parent-Teachers' Association, for the Ohio Oil dance at the Niles building, and for Morning Exercises at the school. These are a few of their public appearances, and some of the songs that were sung were "Gentle Zephyr," "Mis- tress Maryfl "I VVould That My Love," and "A Rose Song." Judge for yourselves. And of course they went over for the Eisteddfod. The song chosen for the com- petition of the Girls' Glee Clubs was "Down in Dewy Dell." A light airy song, just peppy enough to satisfy the Findlay Club. So altogether, the Girls' Glee Club made Findlay High quite proud of them, and we only hope that the future Clubs will be as successful as this one. -JESS ALTSCHUL, '23, GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM CContinued from Page Fifty-six.5 at least three more years and we'll wager that Mary will set a record that she'll be proud of in years to come.

Page Seventy-four THE BLUE AND GOLD BOYS' GLEE CLUB Good friends and dear friends XYhere 'ere therc-'s song, Staunch friends and true friends One whole period long. Glee Club being elective it was surprising to see the number of fellows that turned out for first practice, which sounded like a pep meeting with "Dick" Hosler as our cheer leader. After a short lecture from Mr. Roberts about "following" we were able to pro- duce noises that represented harmony. and since that we have been practicing Coueism. It worked so well that we were given the privilege of singing before the assembly and were flattered by the great applause we were given. not realizing that the student body only wanted us to use all the class time possible. Again our club showed quality when most of our members were chosen for parts in the Opera. To continue our story. we have with us Rudolph Amsler known as "Rob" or the "Gypsy Rover." He may also be introduced by the more popular name of Sir Gilbert Howe. He is always present with his tenor voice tuned to the top edge and he is ever ready to sing, which seems to be his greatest delight. Let us all look and listen to "Dick." better known as the "Hold Bad Man" or Captain Jerome who is very essential to our club, He is always there with his big bass roar. Then there is Gerald Hetrick. the English nobleman, better known as "Dear old Dad" or Sir George Martindale. He is ever present with his pranks and ready to supply the "missing key." 'NVQ must not forget Bob Glessner and Dick Firmin who are the robbers and may be better known as "Mano" and "Sinfo" the "Pals" and entertainers. They may always be relied igpon to do things to the best of their ability. PAGES FROM A BOY'S DIARY CContinued from Page Sixty-Fivel we had been lighting bees while waiting.

THE BLUEAND GOLD fn Page Seventy-eight JUSTAMERE CLUB THE BLUE AND GGLD JUSTAMERE CLUB President -------- Selma Alexander Vice-President - - Florence De Rhodes Secretary-Treasurer ----,-- Mary Oswald As Iustameres with our race already run, VVe will tell you of some of the things we've done. Yes, the justamere Cluib's value, like that of a patent, is not totally measured by its benefit to its members but also by its worth to the city of Findlay. VVhen the Justamere legion gathered about its president, Selma Alexander, it was surprised at the gaps in the ranks. It immediately looked to the Juniors for recruits to bring it up to normal strength. On a September eve the Justameres gathered at the Pleasant Grove Church with its prospective rookies. As the high standard of the club would indicate all applicants were required to give an exhibition of their skill. YVith the legion at full strength the Justamere Club waged a most successful campaign in 1922-1923. The Thanksgiving program was entirely in the hands of the Justameres. It con- sisted of a debate, oration, speeches and reading. . Merry Christmas time was soon at hand. This time the Iustamere and French Clubs cast their lot together and held a successful Christmas Party. It is at Christmas time, perhaps more than any other time of the year, that we all have the fundamental truth of our common fellowship in life brought nearest our hearts. Every truly, great, historic personage has had a heart that could sympathize: that could suffer along with the suffering. So with the Justamere Club, it aided one family victim- ized by circumstances. At this juncture of our career our "big sister", Miss Baker, faded out of our lives. Her map of destiny directed her elsewhere. Even with the same breath fate drew a line on the map of destiny of another, and Miss Bright became our "big sister." After vacation the various clubs successfully put over "The Gypsy Rover." The funds from this opera went to defray the expenses of the various clubs. As usual the Justameres took a keen interest in the debates. After the smoke had cleared on the eve of March 20, the Findlay debaters, all Iustameres, had captured two unanimous decisions. Again at Easter the Iustameres provided a program. Old F. H. S. has always found it convenient to have a club that could successfully put over appropriate programs. To crown all its various activities the Justamere Club held its annual banquet April 3. To have seen it would not have been to believe that they were soon to part, that they were at the cross road ready to go their divers directions. Some may sometime forget what they did as ,lustameres but what they learned will always help them wherever they may go. -XY.

Sprfng T m3. Mr. Blue and Gold Reader. Anywhere, Ohio. Dear Mr. Reader: I am writing to inform you that I was organized in October, 1922. at F. H. S., after a committee appointed by the president pro-tem. had revised my old constitution some- what and had presented it to the Senior Commercial Students for approval. My otiicers were then elected and I ani surely very proud of them and wish to congratulate the members on their wise choice. They are: President, Ray Beard: vice-president, Dorothy Coleg secretary and treasurer, Marian Collingwood. Headed by such a trio why shouldn't I be a success? My business meetings were held every two weeks, on Thursday. in Room I. and I'll never forget Norman Cooper's report on "People IYho Talk Too Much" or Alfred Hard's narrative on his personal experiences, or others of equal fzime, interest and humor. One very interesting meeting was a "Spell-down," because as you are probably aware, business eliiciency to a great extent is dependent upon good spelling. This was extremely exciting and Roa Phillips was proven the winner by "outspelling" everyone there. I had good times, too. and many of 'em. My members believed in getting acquainted early with one another, so on November IS, the first big party was held at Leta Prices home. Did we have a good time? Oh, Yes! delicious eats 'neverything. My December affair was the Christmas party at the home of Dorothy Snyder. Gifts of rare value were exchanged t1Oc limith by the members and with George Harpst as Santa Claus who wouldn't have a grand and glorious time? Harold Henderson was next host, opening his home for the january Meeting, and Doris Lytle entertained me with the February gathering. But of course, pleasure isn't my only aim. I have taken an active part in all school activities, especially the Opera which was sponsored by the clubs of F. H. S. and directed by the advisors of our various organizations. The "Gypsy Rover" was a great success and I wish to congratulate all the members of the splendid cast on their ability as singers and actors. I enjoyed the production very much. I was handicapped in many ways but was able to publish the first edition of my paper, "The Flashlight." with all its brightness, the middle of March. This publication from my own print shop is always a source of interest to my members and their friends. And, Mr. Reader, of course you've heard of our sponsor, Miss Hudnell. If you ever need a critic, asistant, advisor, director. or anything else you'll find her in Room II and she'll surely help you out tI know from experiencet, and her hobby, the bulletin board is always the source of humor and wisdom. Better stop in and take a look at it some day. I am now looking forward to the grand occasion in the spring when I, dressed in my newest and most charming, forget the routine of my business life, and entertain my Junior friends whom I shall adopt next year. This, I hope will be the crowning social event of the season. Perhaps I'd better close, but really. I've been so busy and had so much to tell you that I couldn't resist this oDDortunitv to write this letter to you. I am planning on going on a long vacation this summer so I will be full of vim and vigor for next year. Your sincere friend, .SENIOR COMMERCIAL CLUB. BOWLING GREEN-FINDLAY DEBATE tt'ontinued from Page Sixty-eight.J steady Flow of knowledge into our heads so that it would be indexed and ready for future use. During the last two weeks of preparation debaters could be seen or heard in the audi- toritfrn, manual training room, boiler room and various other places at the high school at almost any time of the day. March 20 came soon. The negative team journeyed to Bowling Green via Mr. Kinley's Studebaker. By the t'me the negative team had taught the Bowling Green debaters that unionism was not a c'osed shop. three judges had concurred in the opinion of the Findlay debaters that the application of the principle of the closed shop does not best serve the interests of the American people tll because the closed shop is Un-American, C25 because the closed shop is economically unsound, Q35 because the closed shop is not humanitarian. --VV. K., '23. Page Eighty-one THE BLUE AND GOLD Eighty-two THE BLUE AND GOLD FRENCHCLUB "Parlez vous Francais?" "Oh oui, Mlle. Hill," responded the forty members of "Le Circle Francais." "Pouvez vous chanter 'Les Marsellaise"?" "Oh, oui." Thus assured that we were real Frenchmen speaking French "as she is spoke," Miss Hill consented to sponsor the club another year. How fortunate we are that we can claim as our sponsor one who has seen France and it's customs and also one who retains an interest in us. This has been a happy year! Richard Oswald is president. He conducts the pro- gram in French and quite frequently we all understand at the same time what he is saying. Lynn McClelland bids us respond to Roll Call and reads the minutes of the last meeting in French. He is also treasurer. Ruby Kober is our vice-president. NVe have attempted to measure up to the ideals which the Seniors of last year, upon their departure, bequeathed to us. XYC insist upon our members maintaining a grade of eighty per cent: we a'm to cooperate with the other school clubs such as Justamere, Senior Commercial and Spanish. VVe respond to roll call in French for the sake of im- proving our French. XN'e aim to create at our meetings a genial and friendly atmosphere which just makes you feel at home. Our October session was a Halloween party at Richard Oswald's. Then in Novem- ber we motored to Dorothy Cole's home near Vanlue, for our good time. In December, the justamere and French clubs combined their efforts and together enjoyed a very successful Christmas party at the XYhen we met at Olive Shaw's in January, Miss Hill gave an illustrated lecture on France and related for us some very interesting inci- dents from her trip abroad. The February and March meetings were combined and every one enjoyed a St. Patricks Day party at Bertha Byal's. One more activity of the club remains unmentioned. Four clubs and the Music Department staged the "Gypsy Rover." The representative for this club was Newton Priddy who starred in the role of Lord Craven. Now we are looking forward to the banquet in April and the picnic in May. Alumni, we hope that we have not only lived up to your ideals, but that we have instituted new customs which will advance the French Club in High School activities. Juniors, who are soon to carry on this work, we recommend to you that you live up to this Club's aims and we sincerely wish that you may derive as much benefit intellect- ually and socially as we have. -RUTH FULLER, '23. THE SPANISH CLUB Feeling the need of an organization to promote interest in the beautiful Spanish language as well as in the dress, customs and other things pertaining to Spain and the Latin-American countries, the Senior Spanish students and their teacher, Miss Littleton. decided to organize a club. A committee consisting of Helen Shusler, chairman, Burnell Alspach and Naomi Tussing was delegated to write a constitution. VVhen this was finished it was voted upon and ratified 'by thirty-eight students. The Club was to be known as "El Circulo Castel- lano" and scarlet and gold, the national colors of Spain, were chosen for its colors. The Club elected Roa Phillips as secretary and treasurer, Margaret Renninger, vice- president, and Frank Gillespie, president. Many pleasant and instructive social and business meetings were held. The meet- ings were featured by Spanish conversation, Spanish lectures and in one instance by Spanish dress. At the close of the year a banquet was held for the junior Spanish students, who will make up the Club next year. The Club though newly organized has fulfilled its purpose and furnished both pleas- ure and profit in abundance to its members and it is our sincere hope that it will con- tinue for as many years as Spanish is taught in the High School. -FRANK GILLESPIE, '23.

WVhat would then become of us? No one knew. Suddenly it snapped. Just then I felt something poking my back. NVas it a snake coming down at last?

RADIO CLUB Une day while walking through the halls of the Central High School, l heard the following conversation between two intelligent young men: "Say, old man, l heard KHU. Los Angeles, on my little crystal detector set." "XYon't that be wonderful to tell at the next meeting of the Radio Club?" was the answer. I became interested in their talk anfl asked them about this much heard of Radio Club. They told me, that at the beginning of the school year, with the airl ui our new, illustrious and energetic science teacher, Mr. liinley, they had organized a Radio Cub with Garland Pfeiffer as president and Arthur Daymon as secretary and a membership of twenty-four. They told me that they had had many interesting meetings during the year. At one of the meetings, a former graduate of F. H. S., Mr. Eugene l,ivingston. gave a very interesting talk on the future of the wireless, and its present applications and uses. At another meeting, Mr. Edwin Tarbox, owner of station SfX.N.N., gave an interesting talk concerning the local disturbance which was on the ether at that time. He also told the members that if they were contemplating setting up a transmitting set that they should be able to send and receive the code intelligently, and while working on Radio we should concentrate all our elforts upon it. At the same meeting, Mr. Clark Foltz, owner of station 3, gave an enthusiastic talk concerning the local rlsturbance and highly endorsed the words of Mr. Tarbox. .-Xlso Mr. Floyd Hackenbufg, owner of a local sending station, approved all the words of both men. These energetic amateurs and the amateurs, who were members of the Club, co- operated with the broadcast-listeners of the city to organize a quiet period in Findlay and its vicinity. They also informed me of another meeting, which in their estimation was the best and biggest meeting of the year. This meeting was the one to which the girls had been invited, to listen in on the radio, and to hear a great deal more on the subject of radio. Although this is the hrst year of the Club's organization it has surely taken a long stride toward a bigger and a better club. They wish to leave to the classes of the future, the Radio Club which was organized in '23, and hope that in years to come this club will be renowned as being one of the most uplifting and forward clubs in America. GARLAND T. PFEIFFER, President of F. H. S. Radio Club. Page Eighty-five THE BLUE AND GOLD THE FACULTY CLUB The organization of the Faculty Club came about very spontaneously when Mr. Boman returned to Findlay last fall accompanied. The Faculty, to show that it was not lack'ng in good will toward him and his bride, assembled at his home for a surprise. The evening was so pleasant that many teachers realized the desirability of a permanent organ- ization of the members of the Faculty. Ere the meeting was over, spontaneously there came into being a Faculty Club, with Mr. Gower its president: Mr. Hybarger, vice- president, and Miss Baker, secretary-treasurer. The purpose of the club is to create a spirit of geniality among the teachers and to provide a means whereby the teachers can get together with good fellowship. The meetings have been very successful. Up to this time the club has been enter- tained at the homes of Miss Lena Kiefer, Mr. Gower, Miss Moore, Mr. Matteson and Mr. Finton. All those who have taken an active part in the affairs of this club testify that they have derived a positive good in relaxation, good fellowship, and better understanding of one another. -DALE D. HUTSON. ALUMNI ASSOCIATION One day last spring, a business man in conversation with Mr. Fletcher asked him what he thought Findlay High needed most. The immediate answer was an Alumni Association to back the student body in it's undertakings. This gentleman seemed to take this all to heart because not long afterwards some of our prominent citizens got together and drew up a Constitution and took definite steps toward the organizing of an Alumni Association. On May 23, 1923, the first meeting was held in the High School Auditorium, when the Constitution and By-Laws were read and the members of the Class of '22 were given memlberships. Mr. R. K. Davis was elected president and he together with the executive committee composed of Messrs. C. H. Smith, O. D. Donnell, L. Heminger, G, Trout, E, Kennedy worked unceasingly all during the summer and performed seeming miracles in the way of obtaining memberships. The hrst results of their labor were visible during the football season because it was through the cooperation of the Alumni Athletic organizations that our Fine bleachers and dressing rooms for the players were possible. A rousing pep meeting, under the auspices of this organization, was held on the eve of the Findlay-Fostoria football game, in F. H. S. Auditorium and immediately following the annual meeting of this Association was held in the Assembly Room. The committees and officers gave their reports and the election of offices was held. Mr. C. H. Smith was chosen president and in a short talk, he mentioned the fact that the Alumni wished not only to support athletics but other H. S. activities as well. So now, Fellow Students, you see how the people of Findlay are backing us and its up to us to help make this organization permanent.
