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

"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. The cast was coni-
posed of the following:

THE BLUE AND GOLD
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
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
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.

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:

The social event of the Sophomores this year was a "Hike" which they took to the
Slaughterbach woods on the Fostoria road. 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. '
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

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-
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.
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.

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
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:

THE SPANISH CLUB BANQUET
Did you ever attend a really and truly Spanish banquet? 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-
tfontinued from Page Sixtyasevenj
In the constructive speeches Findlay's broadsides nearly destroyed the argument of
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-

THE BLUE AND GOLD
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.
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
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.

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!
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
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

one could quite catch up with her when catching the ball. It would never pass her hands.
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.
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
We could always depend upon our subs. They were always full of pep, and they
were always ready to obey. Next year we expect them to make a first team instead of
a sub team.

'XVashington School. In this space we wish to show our appreciation for his work. We
wish him success.
As a pivot man he was hard to beat. He counted much in the team work and figured
good in the scoring.
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 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.
As running guard he played a good game. His guarding was good and always kept
his man to a low score.
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.
Don was a good guard and played well all season. He was our "fighting guard."
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 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.
Hackenberger played a mighty good game all season as center. He counted for
much in team-work and guarding.
Firestone was a good running guard, always fighting for the ball and sticking to his
Townsend. Ritter, Gohlke and Leach deserve honorable mention. They gave the
lirst team a mighty hard race for their places.

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.
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
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
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.

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.

A Typical Freshman Essay
A Sunday in Findlay
On a Sunday morning, when the sun is shining bright and it is warm, the people of
Findlay, sum of them don't go, but those that do, go to church some place. 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.
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
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
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?
XYhen Tom Orndortf went with Mary Porter.

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?

THE BLUE AND GOLD
A SIMPLE ADVENTURE
Dear Readers: I am about to relate the story of my trip around the world which I
think was caused by sleeping under a crazy quilt.
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.
IN FINDLAY HIGH
Rest you in peace. you Flappers dead
The tight that you so bravely led
We've taken up. And we will keep
True faith with you who lie asleep
VVhere once your cheeks were rouged so red.
In Findlay High.
Fear not that you have rouged for naught
The torch you threw to us we caught.
The million faces rouged so high,
So rouge and powder shall never die.
VVe learned to rouge as you were taught
In Findlay High. -EDYTHE SVVANK.

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,
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.
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
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.
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. A., Pittsburg sign-Car-o-lina in the morn-ing-Next will be a
gr--r-r-r-lovin' Sam, the Sheik of Alabam'-rain and warmer in the northwest part of-we

Hour and water for-Aggravatin' papa-and then the three big bears just hurried right-
the Libby Owens closed at-I think I'll take the river and never come back-W. O. C.
signing off. Goodnight."
About this time we thought it was goodnight!!
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.
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.
"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.
'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,"
So they waited 'till Knight to perform the theft.

THE FOOTBALL GIRL
Eyes that are clear as the sparkling air
When the frost-sprinkled forests flame,
Cheeks all aglow with the daintiest red,
VVind-tossed hair round a graceful head,
Bonny and blithesotne beyond compare-
Hail to the Queen of the Game!
There are courage and hope in her eyes so brown,
As she raises the blue and gold flag high,
And winning or losing, till all is done,
She is true to her colors and cheers them on,
VVith the blue and gold in her gown-
Fair symbol of loyalty.
There is much that is dear in the victor's prize-
Honor, applause, and fame,
But when the strife ends in a victory,
The first and the best which the winners see
Is a swift flashing signal from Beauty's eyes-
A smile from the Queen of the Game.
Then hcre's to the maid who begins her reign
When the dead leaves race and whirl,
Hearty and loud is the praise I bring,
For fairest of all is the maid I sing
So fill up your glasses and pledge again

There is nothing like a happy smile to set your
If you have wronged a person, and are in fear

And the little stars were twinkling.

As his arm stole round her-lunch basket
As his arm stole 'round the lunch basket

And she gaye another sigh of submis-
As he quietly stole a-sandwich.

There will he plenty of time, after you have built that
HOME, to 611-joy those pleasures on which the thoughtless
ones are now wasting' their money.
Lumlmer prices are very reasonable and we doubt the
wisdom of waiting' for reductions. Skilled labor will prob-
alily be more plentiful now than it was a few months ago.
AAYC would like to show you home plans and help you in
making' plans for your new Home. Don't envy the HOME
OXYNER. BE ONE!
BUILD YOUR OWN!

THE BLUE AND GOLD
ROMANCE OF MISS TWENTY-THREE
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-
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
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.
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.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
"Oh, Mr. Finton and Mr. Matteson-how do you do: I'm so glad to see you, You're
looking line. 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.
"Oh, I know what you'd like to hear about our school. NX'ho do you think is super-
intendent? Ralph XVisel and Olive Shaw is principal: Mary Katherine Stevenson teaches
French: Florence Vllalters, History: Ruth Wlisely, Latin: Mable Kinney, Mathematics:
Naomi Leonard, Literature: Doris Goodman, Domestic Science: Frances Baker. Science
XVe'll visit there tomorrow and then we'll go around the corner on Funderburg Ave., and
go through the newspaper office.
"Our newspaper is wonderful, it tells us the news of Earth as well as Mars. Opal
Rader is editor-in-chief: Opal Crates has the society column: Helen Schusler takes care
of the advertising: Norman Cooper does all the cartoon work: Edwin Capell is the sport
editor: Vivian Adams has the column '.-Xdvice to the Love Lorn': foreign news is furnish-
ed by Joyce Daymon: and there are talks by Dr. Harry Tucker.
"That reminds me: you must visit our sanitarium on Cherrington Drive, conducted
by Eloise Gordon and Mildred Smith. Henrietta Steegman is head nurse. Three of your
old friends are there at present, Professor Everett Altman, trying to regain his lost
health: Lawyer W'ade Knight, building up his shattered nerves Cbusiness got the best of
both these menj, and Margaret Denison, who was thrown from her horse while teach-
ing riding. '
"Our church is on Hutson Ave., and it surely is a work of art. It was designed by
Madeline Oman, and the stained windows were donated by Louis Blankenhorn, the
wealthy land owner. Arthur Peschel is the minister.
"And then. of course, we have a drug store on Hudnell Street, owned and managed
by Myrtia Neir and Velma Traucht. Our grocery store is owned by Harold Doty, and
our shoe store belongs to Elizabeth Wlilliams and Cleo Dickes.
"Nelson Roselle owns the leading dry goods store: Frances Holliger does all the

vice president, Helen Montgomery, cashier, Grace Jones: treasurer, Mildred Malcolmg
Violet Radabaugh, stenographerg and Dorothy Snyder, teller.
"Across the street is the postofhce. La Rue Maurer is post mistress and Doris Logan
is assistant. Our mail is delivered to earth by Treva Mitchell and Doris Hillshafer in
"Lynn McClelland has been very successful in the real estate business and Olive
Blankenhorn and Ruth Price are agents for the Edward Tyrell Fire Insurance Company.
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

SENIOR PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
The end of the school year of 1923 is a milestone in our lives. 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

THE BLUE AND GOLD
HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF '25
Early one September morning in 1921, a band of eager explorers met to start on the
adventure of seeking treasures in the tomb of King Knowledge. 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.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
HISTORY OF CLASS OF '26
It came to pass that a decree was sent out o'er all the land that school should begin
on the twelfth day of the ninth month. 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
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
And so ended a year which was good, and all were exceedingly glad.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL SPIRIT
Push ahead! Beat 'em all! Stop, think, and study, then push ahead some more!
That's the spirit felt,--really felt, by every student of VVashington High School who real-
izes what we are, and what we uphold and stand for in everything we undertake.
"Freshies" we are called. VVe want the people to stick to the sentiment involved in
that name. XVe are "fresh," we are "green," and we are new to these unconquered regions
where opportunity stands on every corner, and we are proud of the fact! 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
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

On February, 1923, Howard Rhodes, class of '24 was sum-
moned to an early reward. 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.
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.
"No farther seek his merits to disclose
Or draw his frailties from their dread abode
CThere they alike in trembling hope reposej
The bosom of his Father and his God."
Requiescat in Pace.

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
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
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
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
-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
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!

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 spr.ng 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

so-called "fre-e' days draw nearer, we wonder after all if our elders weren't right? If

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
THE BLUE AND GOLD
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!
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-

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-
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,

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.

After the football season had closed everyone turned his eyes upon basketball, and
began to wonder Just what kind of a team we would have this season. Some were
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.
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
March 16-Findlay, 5, Kenton, 24.
Kenton came to our big city on March 16 with revenge in their hearts and they
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
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.
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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
It is hard to apologize for myself. so I w'll leave this space blank.
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.
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.
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.
"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.

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
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 plays a fine game as forward and when it comes to shooting fouls she can't
be beat. '
"HutTy" was elected captain and played such a game as one would expect the captain
Mary played a great game at center and as she's only a Freshie we'll have her for

CRITICISM OF THE WORK OF NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE
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

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
"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
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,
"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
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.
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
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!
"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,"
"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

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
"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."
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

important people," answered the neighbor.
"Well, just because you had your face written all over by a Senior doesn't mean that

"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

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
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-
AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF A BOOK
"No, you're mistaken again, I'm not a history of the world, only a common Spanish

him Bob. Since I came into his possession I have learned much about High School

Outrageous, I call it. I'l'l be hanged if I'll pay it.' He did pay it just the same though.

to get along hne, but I soon changed my mind. He'd only had me two days when he

was loud enough to be heard for two blocks around. g

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

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.

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."
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.
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.
You may be brave, and wise. and quick, and strong,
You may command with courage and with grace,
But one shall come, when you have passed along,
And serve with equal splendor in your place.
And he may see what you have never seen,
May nnd new ways your feet have never trod.
And he may go where you have never been.
For after all the greatest of us plod.
In all the throng you may not see his face,
Secure you seem, and all your prospects fair.
But one there is who waits to take your place-
Against your passing, Life has placed him there.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
The white clouds whirl,
And the swallows swirl
In the sea-blue depths of the sky,
NVhen the fairies three,
On the shores of the sea,
Go slipping softly by.
And the gold rays pour
On the sandy shore
From the summer sun on high,
As they laugh and sing,
And the woodlands ring
lVith the echo of each glad cry.
For the live long day
They dance and play
On the shore of the laughing sea:
'Till the shadows fall
From the green trees tall,
And dusk falls over the lea.
And then at night,
See the still moonlight
They meet again to play,
And the stars shine down
On the sleeping town,
And the green hills far away.
Hut on these hills
XVhere the night bird trills,
And down on the sands by the sea,
The fairies play
'Till the dawn of day,
X'Vhere the moon sinks, and they Hee.
And you and I,
In passing by,
XYonder what makes the grass so greeng
But the fairies could tell,
For they know it well,
'Twas the throne of the fairy queen.

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
"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,

MUSICAL NOTES OF 1923
The music department of 1925 has been a success.
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
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.

"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

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.

"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

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-

for we know we had first honors for the music furnished and loyalty displayed for our

complete victory at Sandusky.

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.

Good friends and dear 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.

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
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.

Mr. Blue and Gold Reader.
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
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.

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.

"Parlez vous Francais?"
"Oh oui, Mlle. Hill," responded the forty members of "Le Circle Francais."
"Pouvez vous chanter 'Les Marsellaise"?"
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.

F. H. S. 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
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.

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
All those who have taken an active part in the affairs of this club testify that they

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

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.
