THE BLUE AND GOLD
"Class of 1924"
'Twas nineteen hundred and twenty-one.
That a famous battle was begun.
We Freshmen clad in uniforms green,
Were shot and shelled with a hring machine.
For one whole year, the battle waged,
But never once was the little troop caged.
Though the force was divided, they 'could always uphold,
The cherished banner of the Blue and Gold.
As the year rolled around, advancement came,
And we were classed in the Sophomore fame
Some of our number did illustuious seem,
And proved their ability on the football team
In Sophomore rhetoricals, programs and such
We couldn't hope to show off much.
Who dare against Juniors and Seniors compete.
VVithout being forced to take a "back seat?"
With our banner before us, onward we trod,
Till we planted our feet in the Junior sod.
Here was our first real chalice to show.
That you can reap just what you sow.
We planted the seed when we met and selected,
Commander in whom no fault was detected.
Our play, "The Charm Sehoolf' won for us fame,
And our debates and music gave us a name.
From all around you could hear fine words of praise,
And to us, those were the happy days.
Now we are Seniors, our services o'er,
But we're struggling and striving as never before.
Our goal has been set and we have maintained,
The former standard by which we have gained
This year as last. no talents we lack
When we passed so ably "The Third Floor Back."
VVe had speakers and writers and artists galore,
No better could be found from shore to shoreg
So that is why we proudly bore, the name of the "Famous
At last we are veterans in our High School career.
Liife's problems will be met without any fear.
Though in future years, wc-'re scattered wide,
Our services, this old world shall not be denied.

XVe shall hail Captain lfinton and our Blue and Gold.

President Senior Class Message
"Of all sad words of tongue or pen
The saddest are these, 'It might have been'."
As graduation draws near there comes to every senior a doubt as to whether he has
made the most of his four years in high school. Although some have done a great deal,
nevertheless nearly all can see where they might have done much better. lt is only after
we have successfully passed through high school that we realize that those years were
four of the greatest and most important years in our lives. "There is a tide in every
man's life which taken at its flood leads on to fortune." Certainly the advantage of a high
school training is one of the greatest opportunities in our lives. Since "Opportunity
knocks but once," the problem confronting the under classmen is to take every advantage
of this opportunity.
One of the criticisms of the modern high school student is that he seems to be drift-
ing along without an aim. Too many of us believe in waiting till graduation to think of
our particular vocation. There is no better place than the high school to bring out the
individuality and peculiar abilities of a person, if he enters whole-heartedly into every
possible phase of school life and tries to perfect himself in those to which he seems
Many a cornerstone bears the inscription "Toi our youth, the hope- of our country."
Boys will be boys, but boys also will be men. Our country's position in the world tomor-
row .will depend on our preparation today. The world's progress is in the hands of its
youth. There must lbe progress, there is no such thing as standing still. We must either
move forward or backward. Fellow students, are you fitting yourself for the task that
President Class '24,
lies before you?
It is in the charming summertime within the lovely, attractive city of Findlay, on the
banks of the mighty Blanchard. 'Tis afternoon and it is in a dignified, illustrious private
office on the thirty-third floor of the new Crawford Building on the corner of Sandusky
and Main Streets, the chief architect, engineer, director, boss, janitor was Don Craw-
ford. ln said ofhce sits Frank Traucht, world renowned electrician, chemist, radio expert,
physicist and inventor of the new electric patent dog-catcher designed for safety service
director, Ralph Strauch, with his ruthless gang of appointed officers, Donneta Bird as
Chief of Police, Mary Oswald as speed cop, with such assistant right hand deputies as
Doris Stall and Mrs. Hattie Runyan Thomas. In the fire department any day may be
seen Vance Kramer, john Hazel, and others participating in a hotly contested game of
Mah jongg, or reading for enlightenment such literature as the Orthwein version of
Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." As public health officer, Edward Bruck-
lacher, assisted by Esta Orwig as campaign leader, is conducting his struggle against
"the hydrophobia germ" or "the path to Maple Grove" with such mottoes as "Let Bruck-
lacher dispose of your garbage" and "Marguerite, go wash your feet, the Board of Health
is across the street." As our city Mayoress we take great pleasure in announcing Evelyn
Damon. Her slogan is "Kale or Jail." ln the court room we have joe Ann Redfern as
Prosecuting Attorney, and as Bailiff, Delbert Boren. The chief janitor and window
washer at the Court House is Dwight McLaughlin.
Now going clown the street in a 1938 model Fellers jazz-buggy we see at the right
near Front Street, "Marquet's Mecca for Chili Hounds." This establishment is the
popular resort for Drayman Grove, Street-cleaner Simmons, Milkman ller, Stage Hand
Jones, Ragman Ursehalitz, and Iceman Firestone. Here on Saturday night is a big
attraction. On this night it is the privilege after their copper-boiler bath of the week for
Farmers Gerald Line, Edgar Johnston, Harriet Thomas and Cecile Skidmore to see
Jeannette Bonham, alias "Tickling Tilly," star of the soulful musical comedy "Vengeance
ls Mine" or "Two Toothed Tilly" by Pyorrhea with a charming. beautiful chorus, con-
sisting of Elnora Spoon, Geneva VVyant, Doris Alexander, Ruth Cramer, Pauline Smith
and Bernice Beeson. Opposite to the highly touted Miss Bonham plays the dashing
young hero, jimmy Hammond. As chief soup-slinger and chief bouncer, the small but
mighty Dick Hosler runs the place.
Over the bridge and standing above the surrounding buildings is seen the WOIHCUYS
Kindness to Dumb Animals Club, with Beryl Amsler as president and Ethel Honecker
as keeper of the gold fish. Betty Harvitt is the campaign orator against the cruel en-
snaring of rats, cats, dogs, birds or bugs, for any purposes other than foodstuffs for
Clarence Myer's chop suey joint.,
THE BLUE AND GOLD
On the opposite side of the street is the Men's and VVomen's Incorporated Barber
Shop with barbers Howard Marvin, Kenneth Tyner, Walter Duttweiler and barberesses
Susan Beach, Margery Morris, Pauline Hummell and Freda Schlaaik, porter Wilson
Allen, and manicurist Florence DeRhodes. At the cigar counter Margaret Strickland
makes a specialty of selling by her Winsome ways "Linard's Five-cent Super Qualirty
Aroma-giving Stogies" with the trade mark "Smoke one of these and you will smoke no
-other," Thedbeauty parlors and "Gold Dust Twin" baths for ladies are managed by
Catherine Fellabaum and Mildred Cole.
And now on a corner nearby stands a church, Coburn Vandersall its the pastor,
Mabel Gruber is chorister with Ruth Foster as organist. Nellie Love is president of the
VVoman's Missionary Society, while Howard Nau is janitor.
Next we inspected the Exchange Cut-Rate Bargain Department Store, which is one
of the famed women-organization establishments. Ruth Reimund is boss, president, and
Floor-walker. Erma Coleman runs the style department with everything the latest from
London, New York, Paris and Arlington. Helen Shafer has charge of the millinery with
bird feathers from Africa, Asia and the rear of Myers' chop suey hang-out, where Emery
Snyder picks chicken feathers, peels potatoes, and cleans the rat meat for the popular
dish. Edna Norris has the kitchen wares. Mildred Walters receives rugs from Persia,
India, France, for her department, and her special agent is Shiek john Newton, in Egypt,
who, by his cave man ways and good looks, has made as big a hit with the camels and
Egyptian damsels as did Valentino himself. Margaret Strathman handles the book depart-
ment, her latest sellers are "The Heroic Capture of Wild Bill Hickupsu or "Saturday
Morning in Dick Reed, Jrfs Back Yard," by Carl Long, and "Love in a Ford" by Betty
Porter. Catherine Stears runs the meat marketg her cows come from Mildred Ru.dolph's
100 per cent efficiency cow, pig and poultry farm. Vera Hutton runs the jewely depart-
ment. Delite Ebersole models and manufactures the earrings for this department.
Mabel VVise is the head of the dry goods. Virginia Curtiss has the shoe department.
Gladys Caughman takes care of the grocery department and makes a special sale of
animal crackers each day to the twelve children of I-Ion. Thomas Raymond Cunningham,
Esq., B. V. D., President of the Ladies' Ready-to-VVear Shop, State Sewer Inspector,
Cashier cf the Mortimer Federal Reserve Bank, Nominee for Board of Education, running
against Miss Badger, popular educator and golf player. The toy department is con-
ducted by Margaret Mays, who sells VVisner's patent talking dolls, sheep, horses, dogs.
rats, cats, rabbits, squirrels, teddy-bears, bears, tigers, and fish. Nellie Stevenson runs
the candy counter. Margaret Sheridan runs the elevator and Rita McGavey does the
window decorating. May Bowers drives the truck.
Farther down can be seen the office of Mrs. Benner-Ccrykendale, and Miss Myrth
Hosler, Attorneys-at-Law, their private secretary and stenographer is Vernon Kanable.
We then returned to Frank's ofhce where he has his radio call set by which anybody
could be talked to by calling the city telephone exchange or the nearest 'phone exchange
in case of foreign lands. First we called San Francisco where Bill Pifer and his Howling
Hounds, successors to Paul Whiteman, with Howard Mays the star of the aggregation,
were playing for a ball given by ex-middleweight champion-prize-hghter Arthur Hen-
dricks, who had made his fortune in the ring and in the movies.
Next we called Honolulu where Admiral Vorhees, on his trip around the world
after a historic career at Annapolis, is sitting on Hawaiian sands watching the Hula
Hula, having totally forgotten, per usual, his waiting love, a manicurist in a barber shop
in Findlay, Ohio.
And now we called New York. Florence Meyers, of the Ziegfield Follies has just
taken Broadway down. Roberta Hanrahan is p'aying with the Metropolitan Opera Com-
pany. Not such a soulful player has been heard since Rachmaninoiif started to play jazz.
At Columbia University we found Professor Albert Hughes whom Miss Amsler of the
humane society thinks is setting a bad example for the class by killing twenty frogs a
day for his biology class. On the Bowery we hnd the House of Stanheld, one of the
most noted clothing houses in New York. Stanheld sells only to the handsome men and
his version of good-locking socks is especially recommended in New York, by Errold
Struble, a popular society man, tea-hound and cake-eater, who having won a medal in the
Olympic games for running, is now the talk of New York.
We then called Hollywood and talked to Twc-gun Misamore, the Hoot Mix of 1940,
who surpasses all previous movie actors as an lndian fighter and a serial star. Also at
Hollywood resided George Oess, a rival of Larry Semon, who features, as his comedy
queen, Miss Annabel Poole.
Hence to Indianapolis. Here we found Dick Blackburn and Charley Auseon enter-
ing in the annual speedway classic a Carrothers 5 wheeled 20 cylinder speed-hack. This
cart is a great favorite, the monopoly of all betting being held on this chariot by Harvey
Greer, millionaire, as the result of his invention of a new patent electric family tooth
brush, and Floyd Payne, wealthy manufacturer of farm implements and electric plows,
tractors, threshing machines, and electric vacuum stable cleaners. At Indiana Univers-
ity, there has been erected for Francis Heckert Dye, literature professor, a library wherein
professor and students are funished beds and may read and study all night, the library

Junior Presidentis Message
Aims are same of the things we all have. lf we didn't have aims, what would we be
or what would we do of any importance? VVe do not all have the same aims because we
are all different. but we all have certain aims that we wish to fulfill. XVe aim to do a
certain thing and if we strive hard enough to accomplish it we fulfill our aim. lt is the
future we look forward to and the things we've planned and aimed to do.
Aims are the things that make people great. No man was ever truly great who did
not have high aims and high ideals. lf we have high aims we become better students and
better citizens because we look forward to doing something that is bigger and better than
anything that has been done in the past. '
The man with no aim never rises to any height. He has no set aim or course and is
content to do and go in whatever path he chances to find, no matter what it isg but the
man with the high ideals aims fer something higher, nobler, and better that he can do.
Most of us may never become very great or high in the world. as perhaps a few will,
because there are always a few who rise to great heights. Yet, whatever we do or what-
ever we're in, let us aim to do our best so that the school and community will be helped
and not hindered by our having been one of their number.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
Once upon a time, so long ago that everybody has forgotten the date, there were, in
the land of Findlay, a castle with its many towers called Washington and a great strong-
hold with its dungeon-keep called Lincoln. In the Washington Castle there dwelt Queen
Jacobs, a wise and goodly queen, and over the Lincoln Castle 'there ruled King Green
of great merit and favor among his people. These rulers despaired greatly when they saw
what wicked and unworlthy children they had. King Green's only child was the fair
Princess Student and Queen Jacobls son was gallant Prince Schollar.
Now these lords with the help of other wise knights did with great diligence lead
their children through the fair' halls of their castles and did show them the beauty of
these halls and charged them on the high order of educaition to indulge deeply in the
understanding of these. But the Prince and Princess were sore perplexed and sought
knowledge for nigh untoi nine months and finally came to be known as the Emerald Prince
Now in the land at this time there was a great magicilan, Merlin, called Matteson,
and when the mighty Merlin perceived the advance in the order of education of the
Prince and Princess and saw that they knew that X2 -l- X2 does not equal X2 he said.
"Princess Student of Lincoln and Prince Scholar of Washington, thou hast passed and I
unite thee in marriagef' So saying, he waved his wand and ordered them to pass into the
valley in which King Darius, known as the good King Finton, nuled.
For three months they journeyed to the Castle of King Finton and when they arrived
in the Court of King Finton and the Knights of the Round Table, they were greatly
scorned and mocked by two arrogant kniights, Sir Gawaine du Senior and Sir Ewaine du
Junior. Although the Prince and Princess were exceedingly wroth, they did not, to pro-
tect their good name, challenge -either Knights to a joust. The good King Finton looked
upon them and marvelled at their unworthiness. Many times good King Finton and
some of his most worthy Knights of the Round Table spake to the Prince and Princess
and taught them bot'h how to handle the sword of Geometry, the buckler of History, the
spear of Biology and to ride the horse of Latin. While learning to do these things, they
saw some of the Knights of King Darius! court hght in football jousts and basketball
Then, one day, King F-inton's heralds announced that on Tuesday next there was
to be a great contest throiughout the King's court, that the Knights and Ladies who
saved the most money should toil for a prize. And it so happened that the Prince and
Princess. with great diligence, labored and received the highest honor by achieving the
height of one--hundred per cent. The other Knights marvelled and wondered who the
Prince and Princess were and since they knew not their woirthy name, they call them
Prince and Princess Sophomore and. knowing themselves bested, the Knights had more
respect for the brave Sophomores.
Then King Finton cried out and announced that on the morrow was the anniversary
of the birth of one of the greatest kings of the land and since another great king's birth-
day had been but a few days before, 'he ordered that a great feast should be given in
honor of the Kings, Lincoln and Washington, a feast even greater than the feast of Pente-
cost. On this day the knighits of the court feasted on a program at the expense of the
unseltish Prince an-d Princess. More and more the knights with much respect began to
notice the House of Solphoimore and the Knights of the Round Table were exceedingly
pleased and bore the feast well.
And it came to pass that the Prince and Princess worked and gained great favor in
the land. They did such deeds as had never' been seen in King Darius' court and so it
was that King Finton one spring morning did charge them to come unto him and there
he gave them the tirtle of Lord and Lady du Junior. Departing very joyously they rode
on their way, and as tradition tells us, they lived happily ever after.

OUR BASKETBALL TEAM
This is the third year that we have prayed for a winner. This is the thirvd year our
prayers have been unanswered. XVas it t-he fault of the students? VVas it the lCH1I1l5
fault? A bitter debate Could be waged upon this subject for twenty days and twenty
nights, and then we wouldn't get any place.
ln our opinion, however, the students have displayed a more sustained loyalty to
this team-win or lose-than in either of the other two years. They are to be eommended.
Un the other hand. has the spirit of a champion showed any signs of being sustained on
the part of the team. lt wasn't cold feet on their part that eaused them to lose when
they were 17-2 in the lead. lt was their frame of mind. One bucket from an opponent
eonvizneed them that they were beaten, they might as well stop. ln other words, they
were talked out of it by l or two buckets. They would become rattled and miss a dozen
or two "setups" and the scorer would check up a win for their opponents.
Toward the last of the season that "don't care" attitude was evident. They took it as
a joke. Now, this editorial is not given as a criticism. It is meant as a helpful suggestion.
Team-you had the making of a team inueh to be fearedg you had the ability butt you
never exerted it. You should have won at least every game but one. No one pulled for
you harder than your own F. H. S.
So fellow-students, let's start praying for next year. Maybe our prayers will be
answered this time. Even if they are net, let's keep up that "never say die" spirit. if we
never win another game.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
Within the last year we have tried three methods of reserving tickets. One of them
has been to wait around outside the building. When the door opens, everybody tries to
get through at once. We have tried the method of drawing numbersg but that doesn't
seem quite fair ifn that someone coming in at the last moment may draw number one.
The third method seems to me to be the fairest and the best. It was first tried the las-t
of last year. In this plan the person coming first receives a check with the number 1
on it. Then alt the time designa-ted for the sale, the person in charge calls for number 1,
etc. This method saves a jam and a possibililty of some of the weaker sex being overcome
by the ofnrush.
The plea for the drawing of numbers was based on the fact that it gave time for the
townspeople to get thereg but on observing one of these drawings, I noticed that the
majority of the older people were ones who were through work at four or four-thirty
and this gives them all the times in the world.
Too much cannot be done to put this reservation sale on a firm basis. Then the
people will be accusltomed to it and there will be no guesswork on the part of anybody.
Those in charge are to be commended for their efforts in trying to do this and it is to be
hoped that the fairest method possible will be accepted.
Upon inheriting the title of Sophomore and earning the right to go to Central High,
a youth also finds that he has fallen heir to a beauttifully carved, and well initialed desk.
Of course this situation is ideal for writing. It gives one's paper a mark of distifnction.
Excluding no one I think that you have all had this experience. Fellow students!
Is it right? Moreover, a majtolrifty of the pupils help in keeping these desks mutilated.
It seems to be a sortt of a precedent to carve one's initials as large as possible and on as
many desks as possible. Again I ask. Is it right? Using a little common sense, We
all agree it is not.
Next year we shall be itn our new building. We will not find such exquisitely carved
desks. Now the question is, "Are we going to carry out this well established precedent
and proceed to leave our mark of character upon these new desks?" Do you think it is
right? NVill it beautify the school property? VVill it build up your charactter? The "no"
is evident. '
So next year let each of us appoint oursclf a special committee of one to see that
the property loaned to us or entrusted to our care is not destroyed as described above.
Let us do away with any such precedcnsit as that and form better customs whilch can in
turn be established as precedents.
Can we say -that chivalry no longer exists when a strong man gives his seat in a
crowded street car? Is chivalry dead when a bo'y guides an old woman across an icy
street, or when a girl pilots her feeble grandfather through a crowd? Is it dead whetn
the schoolboy is content to sit silenlt and not once sauce his teacher while she on her part
is careful not to hurt his feelings? No, chivalry, as the thoughtful courtesy toward
others, is as much allive today as ever, though we have no men-at-arms with their bright
plumes and glittering lances.
How often we misuse that word love! We say that we "love" whipped cream, "love"
to go to the movies or that a certain boy "loves'I a girl. Bust there are only two ways
in which the word love can be used correctly. Of course all of us should have and do
have that kindly regard called love for all human beings, for as the poet says, "They
are slaves most base whose love is for themselves and not for all their race." Then that
deep affectionate feeling one individual has for another certainly can be dignified by the
name love only when it lifts to a higher plane and calls out the very best, the purest, the
most sublime characteristics he possesses. It enobles every humble task and makes this
world a paradise.
Findlay High School is fortunate in the personnel of her teachers. A school may
justly be proud if her staff only inispires the pupils with a desire for more knowledge.
But how fine it is when the scholars do their best and are careful to do it honestly so that
they may retain the respect, admiration and the friendship of the teachers!
THE BLUE AND GOLD
Next year! What will it hold for us? What will it bring to us? Happiness or
sorrow? Winning teams or losing teams? Better spirit or not? Larger debate try-outs?
Fellow Students! you alone can answer these questions. It is in your power to make or
break. VVHAT VVILL YOU DO?
This year we have won renown on football field, in dramatics, in debate. Next year
will we do' better? VVe can. We have all summer to think it over and plan for a bigger
and better year. True it is that there are many seniors who will battle for a place in
the ranks of life. Some will wish that they had made better use of their time in High
School. Will you who are left regret something like this when you graduate?
Let us take a vote on the general question: 'tAre we going to make F. H. S. bigger
and better than ever next year by showing more loyalty toi all high school activities?"
All the aflirmatives answer, "Aye." Aye!!! Those opposed, "Non-?-? There! We
have decided that. Now let us stick to it!
We see a bright future, if we work. We will work. Along with this work let us
use at least a little of Mr. Finton's "Self-Control." With these suggestions let us give
a big F'-F-F-with a larger V-I-C-T-O-R-Y on the end, that never say die yell which
has won fame for us already. All ready!
THE CAMPAIGN OF FRIENDSHIP
Every pupil in F. H. S. has heard noted speakers and lecturers expound upon certain
theories, morals, and ideals, which we as pupils should take unto ourselves in order to Ht
ourselves for better men and women. No doubt each and every one of us has received
some benefit from these talks. VVe hope so. But this year a new innovation along this
line came into F. H. S. in the way of the Campaign of Friendship.
To those who are unaware of the purpose and procedure of this campaign, we believe
it should be fully explained. This campaign consists of half-hour interviews between
prominent local men and all high school boys who desire them. The best men available
are obtained. The boys are assigned to the men, care being taken to arrange the boys so
that the best possible information can be given them concerning their own future. In this
way the boys become acquainted with these men who in turn come to take an interest
Every boy seemed pleased with these interviews and said that he had received a great
deal of benefit. The business men who gave valuable time to this campaign are certainly
to be thanked for the manner in which they worked for its success. The Hi-Y Club is
also to be congratulated for its efforts in putting over this successful campaign.
There was only one thing about this campaign that didn't please everybody. That was
the fact that it was for boys only. No doubt the girls should also have a campaign of
this order, but the Hi-Y Club is composed of boys and for boys. Hence, this double
feature was not there.
Next year this campaign will be put on again. With the enthusiasm created by this
year's experience, no doubt is entertained but that it will enjoy a bigger and better success.
This year another new movement was introduced into F. H. S. This was the two
officesicreated, namely Dean of Boys, and Dean of Girls. The boys were fortunate in
having Mr. Kinley as their Dean. The Editorial Department of the li. and G. has been
taken as a means to express the gratitude of the boys in general.
Who was it introduced "Stags" into F. H. S.-those never to be forgotten "Stags?'!
Mr. Kinley, of course. No real boy could forget that. Mr. Kinley has a way of making
you feel at home and friendly toward him. His friendliness is far reaching. Some have
criticized him for this, but the boys themselves like him for it and feel more inclined to
do right, knowing that he trusts them. He is never too busy to give a friendly word or a
helping hand. His methods have brought quick and successful results. Let us use a
familiar expression of the fellows to express the fellows' own esteem of him. "He is a
good scout." What else could better express their thoughts.
THE BLUE AND GGLD
After all what is the definition of a true friend? Is it just someone of your acquaint-
ance with whom you chum around and to whom you make a loan once in a while? No.
A true friend is one you can depend on in time of hardship and need, one who is regarded
as your other self, one you can go to, sit down with, open your heart to, without fear of
betrayal, of being laughed at or scorned.
You may neglect him land almost completely forget him at times but he is always the
same old friend. As Mr. F. L. Kinley has said, 'AA thousand friends is not enough and
an enemy is one too many." A neglected friend is a neglected self.
Friends are something better than companions. They give freely and gladly advice
and help, and they always stand ready to help you overcome any obstacles morally,
physically or spiritually.
-THOMAS M. FLETCHER.
Are there not times in every girl's life when she needs advice and sympathy, when
she needs a real friend, a person who is interested in her and in her problems? Indeed
there areg but at what time more than during her high school life?
Miss Kiefer has always been ready to aid us at such times. Do we not need a con-
stant example of dignity and personality? Should we not have an aim, an ideal? Yes,
we must have an ideal or true success can never be attained. Where could a more beauti-
ful example of personality, poise and dignity be found than in Miss Kiefer, dean off girls?
Nowhere. That is unanimous. Then girls, let us take advantage of such an example, for
patience, sympathy and dignity are worth while. Perhaps we do not realize the value of
Miss Kiefer's influence at the present time, but it cannot always be concealed. Her influ-
ence is without bounds.
Credit should be given to whom credit is due. It has not been the B. and G. staff
that has put across this year's annual. It has been the work of the students under the
supervision of the staff.
The high man in numlber of subscriptions sold was Richard Blackburn, wfho brought
in a total of 45. Carl Young was next. The staff also recogfnizes the able assistance of
the advertising solicitors. These fellows worked hard and are deserving of much credit.
Those contributing were: Mervin Dye, Edward Misamore, Ferrell Crawford, James
Parker, Richard Blacktburn, Richard Hollington, John Woodward, Ford Roberts, Gerard
Hetrick, Earl Krouse, Ralph King, Leo Ursichalitz, Archie Johnston, Bob Glessner,
Arthur Hendricks, Ralph Sitanilield, Coburn Vaindersall and William Poole.
A School Council
This year our High School has had for the first time cooperation between teacher
and parent. This has been a great step in advance for Findlay High School. But there
is another step, one which I 'believe is even greater and more important than cooperation
between parents and teachers-that one is cooperation between teachers and students.
A school council, the membership of which consists of representatives' from the
faculty and the students, is the very latest and most efficient form of student govern-
ment. There must always 'be a faculty and student body. A school is -going to have
maximum efficiency when these two gnoups know and understand all the needs and
wishes of each other and work together to a common end.
The past year, with our dean of girls and dean of boys, has proved how greatly
the faculty is interested in the welfare of the student bo'dy. They have proved that the
relationship between teacher and student may mean a great deal more than mere instruc-
tiong that it means understanding and friendship. Student government or faculty gov-
ernment means little to a school. A school government to be really representative of that
school must represent 'both faculty and student body. This is ideal government for
Findlay High School. VVe want to see this ideal made a reality next year.

Ralph Marquet-"Bee" QL. EJ
.Bee was a natural tackler. He was consistent in all his playing. doing his bit with
a might that was right. Oft-en he proved to be just a little faster than his opponent while
F'-1111111118 C1OWn after a pass. His Fight and love for the game was a great asset to' the
team. He will be in school next year to carry on for the one great cause.
Mervin Dye tCaptainD-"Fat" CL. TJ
Editofs Note:-No team could accomplish much without a leader, and we were
fortunate in having "Merv" for Captain. His cool head won for us many yards. At tackle
he played a steady consistent game, mussing up 'tlie plays of the opponents with ease.
He will be with us next year and we wish him further success.
Ivan Burrell-"Burlie" CL. GJ
Small but mighty was our Captain-elect. Handicapped with a small body but blessed
with a great will power to fight, he succeeded in holding down the guard position in a
wonderful way. At the beginning of the season "Burlie" was a dark horse but with the
alefrt and intelligent manner in which he practiced he soon came to the front. being an
understudy to the coach only. He has one year left and we feel confident that he will
handle the captainship in gneat style.
Edward Misamore-"Messy', CCD
Messy had a wonderful talent for passing the ball back from the pivot position. His
courage and light won for him the confidence of all. On defense he was a wildcat. mak-
ing the opponents line plunges seem like a feather against a brick wall. To him we must
say goodbye because he graduates this year. "So carry on, Messy!"
Fredrick Leary-"Tub" KR. GJ
Leary was one of our main stays this year. An enormous body and an enormous
mind containing a great love for the game and an abundance of fight. Show us a man
who can push him back and we will show you a man that is inhuman. With the deepest
regret we must say goodbye to our teammate as hte graduates this year. 'ASuccess to
you, Tub, and may your life be dominated with the old tight." -
Charles Schuchardt-"Shuey" CR. TJ
Shuey was a bear in breaking up end runs and off-tackle, buck nailing the runner
before he got started. He was always alert and knew what to do in all circumstances.
He has yet one year in school, so "keep it up, Shueyl'
Joe Ross-"Jobie" QR. EJ
Ross was a good man getting down under punts and catching passes with great
skill. His defense was supsrfeme. He would sift through the interference and nab the
man with the ball on all end runs and tackle-drives. He will return next year and show
that he can do better still.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
Forest Pressnell-"Tot" CQ. BJ
Tot, while playing in the back field at quarter and half. was very consistent. He
showed good judgment in selecting his plays and executing his part of each. He scored
many points with his trusty right toe and his punting was of the best order. "Best of
luck to you next year, Press!"
Mack Vorhees-"Nut" CL. HJ
Vorhees played a hard game at half and many times acquired much needed yardage.
He always hit the line hard and low and could be counted on to do his share each time
a play started. NVe must say goodbye to this friend and teammate for he graduates
Arthur Hendricks-"Dutch" CF. BQ
Dutch's specialty was backing up the line on defense. Many times the runner would
be surprised at the power with which he was brought to the giround. Hendricks, also,
was good at carrying the ball and at interference. lf Dutch keeps up the same fighting
Emirithin later life. after graduating this year, he is sure to 'be a success. "So long,
Cloyce Grotty-"Kid" CR. HJ
Always on his toes eager to do anything possible to aid in advancing to the front the
school which he represented. Grotty would often carry the ball on spectacular runs in
the right direction. A hard runner, a hard thinker, a hard hitterg in all a good player.
"Come back next year, Kid, and be as much improved as you were this year."
john Woodward-"Woodie" CH. BJ
John did not play a regular position in the backfield but when called on always would
and could deliver. He proved his worth in the Ada game, advancing the ball again and
again iby 'hard low running. ln this game he hurt his ankle and was disabled most of
the season. Iohnnies a grad. this year, so we say "Good luck!"
Floyd Bigley-"Bug" CF. BJ
A well built fellow with a wonderfitl leg drive. Bigley was always ready and eager
to fill a gap left open by the absence of one of the regulars. His main asset in footballl
was low running. Floyd will! be in school again next year and our hopes are that he will
be of great use to the school.
Burgess Reese-"Bull" CTJ
A hard charger who always kept digging and -tearing his man back. ln the Bee Gee
game his work stood out exceptionally bright. Reese will be back next year helping
with all his might to win, as he always did. You must never forget that tight is a
player's biggest asset. "So keep it up, Reese!"
Clifford Glathart-"Cliff" CCJ
Cliff was not so large, but it isnlt always size that counts in this sport of football.
He had tight, and pep and lots of it. He broke into the limelight in the Scott game by
playing the entire gamle at center and stopping the onrushes of the "Champions of the
United States." He will be back next year working as hard as ever. "Fight on Cliff, to
Carl Young-"Cow" CT.l
Carl was a line m.an of wondrous build, opening holes and smearing up plays came
natural to him. Many groans were caused by Carl's powerful charge. He is a fighter
and with pleasure we say that he will be back next year to carry on the old fight.
Luther Mains-"Swede" CG.j
Long, lanky, lean and limber, f'Swede" always delivered when called upon. He sur-
prised many opponents by his aggressiveness and quick charging. For some unavoidable
reason or neasons, Luther, we are sorry to say. left school. "Success comes through
fight, Luther, so never quit."
"Pinhead's" services were highly appreciated by memlbcrs of the team and the Coach.
There was always satisfaction when you received a slight injury that the head trainer
would be waiting for you at clubhouse and give the wound its necessary attention.
"Thanks, Edward, Old Boy!"
The Season of "23"
VVe consider the season of 1923 a big success, even though we did not come out of
every game with the larger score. ln the long run, it is not the score that indicates the
real victory but the many lessons learned during these contests enable the fellows to learn
by virtue of the other fe'l'low's mistakes as well as by their own. The fact that you profit
by the mistakes made and create a spirit to do better. is far more important than any
score, no matter how large it may be.
The fellows also learn the advantage of team work over too much individualism or
star playing although each one must be putting forth 'every effort in his own way to
further his own and his teammates' interests. What is learned in these games depends
on the spirit and interested effort of the individual and improves his attitude and in-
oreases his chance in after life.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
This season was an exceptional one in many ways. The season began in rather a
lilstless way, losing 'to Carey and Lima Central, winning only one of the first three
games, that from Tiffin by a 'lone point. Then Ada was downed by a 7 -to 6 score
which 'indicated a slight comeback. The next Monday at practice came a heart-to-heart
talk by the Coach telling us of our defects and great possibilities if only a winning spirilt
could be aroused. Then a great change was noticeable in the spirit and attitudve of the
fellows toward their practice and Coach. A hard week of practice fotllowed and on
Saturday, October 20, a rejuvenated team trotted on Scott's field and gave them what
could be considered a moral defeat although the score was 7 to 0 in their favor.
Following this date Findlay downed its four remaining opponents by fair margins.
This comeback was entirely because of the new spirit created by the Coach among his
charges. Many times you could see 'the fellows running to practice or staying out on
the fiejld, running or punting or in some other way improving their playing. This spirit
was the right kind to win and since it has been instilled into the fellows and the school,
may it carry on and grow throughout the rest of the school year, and lead us to
success next year. .

Personality personified is what we find in -this small but mighty bundle that the world
knows by the name of Robert E. Fletcher. But to this team, this schooll, and this entire
town he is just plain 'fBob," our coach, our big brother, our instructor and our friend.
To him we are indebted for 'our success. To him is the school indebted. To him the
parents are indebted for his teachings of right, and to him is this town indebted for his
teachings of courage, loyalty, cleanness, truth and unexcelled sportsmanship. All of his
teachings are of the highest type physically, mentally and spirituallly. -
His departure from Findlay will be a keen blow felt by the whole community and
We all unite in wishing him success in all this undertakings.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
At the beginning of our present season 'tBob" wanted only the best material on the
squad. After a series of interclass games he picked fifteen men to represent our school.
This being done after the holidays we began in earnest. We were no more than started
in this way, than our practice time was cut in half. Right here is where the fellows
showed they had the right attitude because each one made every minute' count. S0
through real work, we tried to get in shape for our firist game. Wirth a small amount of
practice but a veteran team of men, we began our season against the great Kenton
'OUR UP'S AND DOWNyS
Jan. 11 at Kenton -
On this Friday night we thought we would giive Kenton a little lesson in basketball.
Much to our regret at the end of the game we found it turned ouft differently on their
large floor. Findlay S, Kenton 25.
Jan. 18 at Bowling Green
The team woke up and, with a determination that has made Findlay High famous,
beat Bee Gee on itheir own little flcfor. Pressnell, Stru-ble, Sattler, Vorhees and Dye
started the game and were still there at the finish. Pressnell and Struble did the scoring.
Findlay 26, Bee Gee 17.
Jan. 25 Kenton
This was our first home game of the season. They came here to give us ano-ther
real beating but were soon surprised. Only after a greaft hght were they able to Win by
a lone point made on the last minute of play. Dye made a couple of spectacular shots.
Findlay 16, Kenton 17.
Feb. 1 at Bluffton
It seemed the spiriit of the team was higher than ever when we entered our neighbor-
ing city. After a snappy exhibition of basketball we left them with a defeat at our hands.
Struble tossed seven fielders from all angles of the floor. Findlay 26, Bluffton 17.
Feb. 8 Columbus West
Yes, they were a very classy team. They sure had a dead eye for the basket. In this
game our team fought back like t'VVildcats," but finally the best team won. To many
this was one of the fastest games ever played on the NY" floor. Findlay 25, Columbus 28.
Feb. 15 Bowling Green
Bee Gee entered our city wiith a loss of a couple of their men. They expected a
drub'bing from our warriors and they were not surprised as we won hands down. Press-
nell and Strfuble went great in this game and led the scoring. Findlay 22, Bee Gee 9.
Feb. 20 Bluffton T
We expected to find Blufiftffon easy on our own flcor. After takiinig a commanding
lead We were forced to the limit near the end of the game. The defensive work of
Vorhees and Dye was remarkable all the way through. So thanks to these two stalwarts
we Won. Findlay 13, Bluffton 12.
Feb. 27 Woodward Tech '
This school is always among the best in the basketball world. Our team fought like
demons and at the end of the half the score was four all. In the last half they beat us
only through our inability to cage the "set-ups." Findlay 10, Tech 19.
Feb. 29 Kenton Tournament
The last week in February was our hardest week of the season in more than one way.
To play two teams like Tech and Ada in three days was a tremendous task. Added to
this, Pressnell, our steady forward, was hurt the night before the Tech game. VVe played
a "bang-up" game agaiinst our opponents in the first game of the tournament. We were
beaten in the final minutes of play only through our inability to drop in set-ups. Findlay
15, Ada 22.
March 1 Celina Tournament
We played Celina in the consolation round. After beginning with a ten-point lead,
miserable playing near the end lost the game. Simmons made his debut at forward and
caged four fielders.
V March 7 Lima Central
This tall and rangy team had conquered Ada by a lone point at the tournament.
After Watching them play we thought we could beat them on our own floor. After taking
a commanding lead we went back to missing the easy ones and Lima soon began to run
rings around us. Findlay 15, Lima C 30.
March 8 at Columbus
East had won the Delaware tournament and also beat the fine NVest team. Playing
a great game and shooting with dead eyes they easily trounced us. XVisner, Vorhees and
Struble led in scoring. Findlay 16, East 40.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
Capt. Vorhees O
A better and more spirited leader could not be found for our team. He seemed to
be all over the floor at once and very few baslkets were flipped over his head. He was a
small man in staiture but will be a big man to lose.
A "Oscar" was the boy that would bring the crowd to its feet with a fielder from the
center of the Hoor. Very few of the blig or little boys crawled behind him for a basket
as he was a stonewall of defense. "Oscar" is yet a kid so watch him go next year.
Dubs should make no excuses for themselves.
Editorls Note: A great deal can 'be safid of the smallest man on the team. Beside
the fact that he was in there fighting every minute, he led the team in scoring throughout
the year. We wish him more success next year, wherever he may be, since we lose him
by graduation. "Good luck, fWillie'." '
"Tot," our all around star, was out there tossing them through as usual. To our
great regret an injury in practice forced him out near the end of the season. We missed
him a great deal, but let us keep our eyes on him next season.
"VVizzie" was a very valuable man. He started at forward but was soon switched to
center where he went big. A better all around man could not be found and so after
Pressnell's injury he returned to forward. "Pretty one" meant that "Wizzie" was drop-
ping one through. He is a Senior whom we regret to lose.
"Droopy" seemed to play in streaks. VVhen at his best he was not one of the best
but the best. If you want to see a big boy show them how to do it, watch him as he
will be back next year.
"Shuey', was our handy man. He could play any position and always did what he
was told in the best way possible. So, since this lilttle boy is so young, watch him out
there again next year.
"Jumping Jacki' showed us he could make that ball do all the funny tricks. When
called for he always delivered at either center or forward. When the season comes
around again, he will be one of our m-issing stars.
"Ed" tried to grow smaller and play basketball. Well, he never looked very small
when the opposing forwards tried to pass -him. As he leaves us, we lose our rock of
VVorth Kramer and Tom Orndorff were two lads who delivered well when called on.
Since they are only Sophomores watch them on future champion teams. It might be well
to mention here that Carl Leary and Mack Leary were two Sophom-ores who never missed
a practice session. Failthfulness will bring results.

The F. H. S. Girls' Basketball Team
The record of the Girls' Basket-ball Team of 1923-Z4 was a most interesting one. It
was not successful, it is true, from the standpoint of the scores made, but decidedly suc-
cessful when the kind of work accomplished is considered. Six games were lost, and the
fact that three of these defeats could have been transferred into the winning column with
the help of one or two baskets makes them the more bitter. The Girls' Team, however,
was handicapped by the lack of height of several of the players, as compared with their
Nevertheless, great progress has been made in the year 1923-24, for there is an in-
creased amount of interest and enthusiasm shown in Girls' Athletics. This has been long
neglected but it is at last coming into its own. The greater skill and efficiency displayed
has been due largely to the efforts of Miss Ruth Jenkins and Miss Bernice Kieffer, who
have given much of their time and patience to the coaching of the girls.
The race for positions was very close. However, every girl on the team played a
good clean game. Most of the team will have plenty of chances to show championship
work before their day at F. H. S. is over. VVith the 1924 pep and enthusiasm backing the
team that chance ought to be a good one. The old spirit of good sportsmanship, of fair
play, of team loyalty has been constant. A team need not mourn the lack of champion-
ship when it can claim the Uspirit' that means more than victory.
The tirst game of the season was played here with the Kenton girls. This was an
interesting and exciting game. The Findlay Girls were in the lead at the end of the
first half, but the hnal score was in Kenton's favor, 9-14.
The next two games were with Bluffton, Both of these were rough and tumble con-
tests. The scores were both in their favor, 17-8 and 12-4.
The team then journeyed to Galion, where they met an excellent team which had been
playing for four years. The F. H. S. Girls put up a hard fight against an unconquerable
but sportsmanlike foe and received the small end of the 26-4 score. In this game there
were smiles and tears, broken hearts and happy ones, but best of all, indomitable pep and
enthusiasm, good sportsmanship and clean playing on both sides.
Another heart-breaker was with Blooimdale, here. Findlay Girls played a good
enough game to win, but failed to make good on free throws. They kept in the lead until
the last tive minutes when Bloomdale evened the score and shot the winning basket. The
score was 9-10.
The last game of the season was played with Van Buren, "The County Champs."
At the end of the third quarter the score stood 8-9, but the game ended 8-11 in Van
THE VARSITY TEAM
Isabel staged an excellent game this year as forward. Every game was marked by
her spectacular basket shooting from difficult positions. Isabel was our main point maker
of the season and showed good ability in shooting fouls.
"H.uffy,ll although formerly center, became an effective forward. She played good
team-work and fitted into the team play like a cog in a machine. Baskets were her
"Kitty" played forward, where she worked in fine style. She will be a valuable asset
in all our athletics next season and we know she will come through with the same old
"Birdie" went through this season as left forward and her ability in playing this posi-
tion materially aided us in playing our games. There will be a hole to Fill next year when
we form, minus "Birdie's" pep and enthusiasm.
Mary plays a fine game as forward.. She is fast on her feet and uses her brain. She
counted much in the team work and figured good in scoring.
"Peanut, is a hard consistent fighter, who gives all she has. She can be relied upon
until the last whistle. Two more years remain for "Peanut" to romp about the new Gym
floor. She will be our captain for next year.
t Mary Miller
Mary will long be remembered by the many forwards she met during the season.
Her duty was to break up the opposing teanfs play near the basket. This she did with
marvelous success. Such an exhibition of guarding is rare.
"Mickey, had the old basketball eye and she displayed as good a fight as any Blue
and Gold guard put up. "Mickey" has two more years in which to add to her laurels.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
t'Bonny" played an excellent game as guard. Her work in the Hloomdale contest
was of the very tirst order. Bonny's lack of height was not a sufficient handicap to keep
her out of the limelight.
i'B'Tll'l'Sn ability to get out of the scrimmage and to locate her team mate drew uiany
a game out of the fire. She has a height which enables her to play center with the best
of them. "Min" will have three more years in which to add to her prowess.
Marie, of the class of l927, was one of our big finds this season. She is small but
mighty. Marie, perhaps. is our foremost athlete. Great things are expected of her for
the next three years.
The subs this year furnished stiff practice opposition for the Varsity squad during the
entire season. They were always there when needed and much credit is due them for
their splendid cooperation.
The baseball team has made big headway up to the time we go to press. VVe have
several games scheduled, one which we have played, defeating Arlington by a 20-6 score.
This is a very good start and We hope to keep up the pace We have set.
The Varsity is as follows:
First Base-Kenfield Left Field-Marquet
Second Base-Bell Center Field-Pressnel
Third Base-VVisner Right Field-Cunningham
Shortstop-Kramer Pitchers-ASimmons and Caris
Among the reserves are: Plotts, Alge, Grotty, Misamore, Johnston.
The Ten Commandments of Good Sportsmanship
1. Thou shalt have no other aim before playing the game for the game's sake.
Z. Thou shalt not take unto thee any false standards of playing, nor any cheating.
Thou shalt not make use of them nor attempt them, for l, thy referee and umpire, am a
strict referee and umpire, visiting the iniquities of the Seniors upon the juniors unto the
third and fourth classes of them that try to put things over on me, and showin-g mercy
and justice unto thousands of them that respect and keep my commandments-without
3. Thou shalt not take the name of "sportsman" in vain, for the school will not hold
him guiltless that taketh that name in vain.
4. Remember the game to keep it clean. Four quarters shalt thou labor and do all
thy work, but the end of the game is the time to shut thy mouth in the face of the oppon-
ent. Then shalt thou not do any bragging if thou hast won, nor kicking if thou hast lost,
thou, nor thy team, nor thy coach, nor thy rooters, nor thy school, nor thy townspeople,
nor thy stranger that is supportingithee within thy gates. For in six days the Lord made
heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and when he finished he braigged not
about it, nor offered excuses. Wlherefore the Lord blessed the work, but kept it quiet.
I 5. Honor thy opponent and thy good name that thy fame may live long on the roll
ot honor where thy clean playing and good sportsmanship have placed thee.
6. Thou shalt not quit.
7. Thou shalt not cheat.
8. Thou shalt not be a rotten loser.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy opponent.
10. Thou shalt not covet thy opponents record. nor his ability, nor his coach, nor
nor his luck, nor his side of the iield, nor anything that is thy opponents

Athletic Board, Findlay High School
To the Patrons of Findlay High School: .
We take this means of informing you of the athletic activities as carried on in Findlay
High School under the jurisdiction of the Athletic Board of Control. It is not generally
known that there is such a Board and that High Schoo'l Athletics are thoroughly organ-
ized and quite efficiently controlled.
Following is the personnel of this board:
President ---- A - I. F. Matteson
Secretary-Treasurer G. W. Lee
Faculty Manager J. E. Boman
Coach --------- Robert Fletcher
D. S. Finton F. L. Kiinley Miss Zola Jacobs C. R. Green
Richard Firmin George Stump George Trout
The rules of the State Association put the control of athletics directly in the hands
o'f the schools and it is not possible for any organization not under the control of the
Board of Education to institute rules and regulations concerning High School athletics or
any other activities directly under ,thc control of the public schools.
The purpose and aim of athletics is too well known to the general public to need any
extensive discussion. However, it might be said that the primary purpose of athletics is
not to turn out winning teams, anxious and determined as we are to do this, but rather to
build manhood and character in all who participate in athletics and all other activities of
the school. To be a good loser is one of the virtues of a good sportsman. Every pupil is
admonished and encouraged to do his best when on the playing field, but should he meet
a stronger foe, it is important that he should be willing to cheer the winner and renew his
determination to conquer should they meet again.
The spirit of fairness is a virtue that should be in the heart and soul of every true
athlete. To play the game according to the rules will help every boy and every girl who
participates in High School athletics to better observe the rules of the school and the
rules common to every-day life. The spirit of fairness, the spirit of 'lgive-and-take," the
desire to Win, and the desire to preserve and maintain the very best possible physical con-
dition is a valuable lesson to be learned by the athlete, and one that can be easily carried
over into life.
Following are some of the objectives which have been suvbmit-ted to the Board by the
Faculty Manager, Mr. Boman:
1. To secure good schedules: tab Schools that maintain a high standard of athletics:
tbl Schools that have good spirit.
2. To secure good officials: Competent and efficient men who handle games properly
and strive to proimo'te good sportsmanship.
3. To encourage better spirit in the school, a greater appreciation of the numerous
advantages derived from competitive athletics, in addition to mere winning by points.

Kenton, Ohio, December 11, 1923.
To Members of
Ohio High School Athletic Association.
In compliance with the Referendum sent the schools this fall, the State
Board passed at its last meeting a motion to meet two questions that were
given a decided vote by the membership. -
1. Interpretations and protests be sent--seven copies of
each statement and evidence--directly to the Exec.-Sec., D. B.
Clark, Snpt. of Schools, Kenton, Ohio, who will secure evidence
in the defense and submit it at once-to the State Board. This
provis-ion is made pending ways and means to proviide for a Cen-
tral Commissioner. For the present, this plan will make interpre-
tations and enforcement of rules uniform throughout the State.
II. s The Legislative authority be placed in the Administra-
tive heads of schools holding membership in the Association. All
changes in the Constitution, By-Laws and Rules be submitted
by the State Board to the membership for a mail vote before be-
coming a part of the laws of the Association.
The above ruling takes ALL DECISIONS from the DISTRICT BOARD
and places them in the jurisdiction of the STATE BOARD. No other changes
have been made. The EIGHT SEMESTER RULE is still in effect.

Athletic Banquet I
After postponing this annual affair twice, the committee finally established a date
which was kept. Four hundred football enthusiasts attended. During the progress of a
most appetizing meal, the Elks' quartet proved to us that they could sing, while the im-
provised chorus tried to outdo them. Col. Ralph D. Cole in his usual clever and witty
manner introduced each speaker.
The usual routine or customary speeches included Coach Fletcher, Supt. Matteson,
Mr. Conne'l, Mr. Carpenter, Mr. Bonian, Mr. Fred. Siebert of Scott, and Capt. Dye. The
main speaker of the evening was Major Griffith, Athletic Commissioner of the Big Ten
Conference. His inspiring address dwelt upon clean sportsmanship and better athletics.
Previous to this address Frederick Learcy was awarded the gold medal given to the most
valuable player to the team upon the grounds of scholarship, playing ability and influence.
Immediately after the address Mr. Grifhth announced that Ivan Burell would lead next
year's team as captain, the ltallct having been cast earlier in the evening.
The credit for this successful affair is given to the Elks and the wonderful way in
which the team was entertained was greatly appreciated. It was a Fitting demonstration
of Findlay enthusiasm for F. H. S.

Central High School Fairies Go Un A Strike
It was midnight in the assembly room at Central High, The moonbeams shining
through the windows fell on a group of tiny, winged beings who seemed to be holding
some sort of a council-meeting, Contrary to their usual custom they were extremely
indignant about something. The old clock on the wall heard one spritely fellow, dressed
in green, remark in a voice as clear as the tinkling of a tiny bell.
"VVell, l've had about enough of this! No matter how much good work we do we
never receive any credit for it. I, even heard one girl say there never were such things as
fairies! After I had worked so hard for her, too. Nvhy the other day in the third period
she threw a note, right when Miss Mills was looking in her direction. There was only
one thing I could do and I did it. I caught the note and carried it to the one to whom it
was sent. I'll never do it again."
Here many voices chimerl in and it was some time before order could be restored by
the one who was acting as chairman. "Yes," 'he said, 'tl know how it is. If things go
right for them and we help them they call it 'luckf I suppose it is luck, now, that turns
the teacher's eyes from them when they don't know the answer to a question. I suippose
it is luck that keeps the little bee-bees that they throw out of the eyes of the students..
Perhaps they don't know that we ride the bee-bees and guide them. VVe have punished
them from time to time, though. allowing the teachers to call on the unprepared students,
and they only call it 'bad luek.' CHere there were many, tiny sighs.D The only thing
I can recommend is to go on a strike. Why, there is only one teacher who believes in us.
W'e used to have many faithful ones, but now there are only a few, and these are secret
believers." The poor little fellow shook his head sadly.
'tWell," remarked another, "let us take a vacation. It is a shame to work so hard,
and then not have our efforts appreciated. Let them take care of themselves for a while
and see how they like it."
This suggestion was received favorably and the meeting broke up.
This is how it happened that so many people have been having this so-called "bad
luck" lately. You can hear nearly every student complaining. The teachers give such
long assignments, the students say they don't receive as high grades as they deserve and
so many students get caught. just listen any time to a group of students and that is what
you'll hear. But they do not know the reason for this. They are being punished for not

The Spanish Dagger
"Look!' exclaimed Louise, "Look what l found!"
We had spent the afternoon in a little museum in Mexico City looking over the vari-
ous Aztec and Cherokee lndfan collections and South American relics. VVe had seen
hatchets, clay jars painted in contrasting colors and beautiful hand-made shawls in red
and yellow designs with long fringed sides: we had seen elephant tusks, monkey skeletons
and stuffed rattlesnakes whose long. glistening bodies must have stretched out six feet
or more in the tree tops of the jungle before they were killed, VVe thought we had seen
everything there about Mexican and South Amer'can life, when suddenly my friend
grasped my arm.
"Look!" she cried, dragging me half-way across the room, "Look, what 1 found. A
real Spanish dagger! Isn't it wonderful? just like yc-u read about in story booksfl And
sure enough, there it was, a two-edged, steel-handled blade, shining in the light among a
miscellaneous collection of horned toads, woven baskets and Spanish costumes.
"I'll bet there is a history to it," exclaimed Louise just as the manager came up.
"Let's ask Senor Valderezf'
'fSi Senoritas si, there is a tradition to nearly all cf my treasures," supplemented the
Spaniard, "but that dagger has a long story to tell. It is all that remains of a terrible
tragedy. Aye!" The poor old man bowed his head in misery.
"Tell us," we begged, "please tell us the story." Presently the old man raised his
head and this is what he told us.
"lt was a long, long time ago when my cousin lived in a little village, un pueblecito.
She was a beautiful Senorita with the black hair and sparkling eyes of the Spanish. She
led a happy, care-free life among the orange trees and mud casitos of the sunny south.
She had a faithful lover. Pedro, who came every evening to play beautiful songs beneath
her window. He gave her fine presents of lace shawls, combs and jewelry, and she was
"Then, one day the Americano hombre came. He was exploring for a trade company
so he could speak la lengua espanola buena. Well, he was different from Pedro-so
handsome and so bold. He walked right up to the door and asked for la Senorita Mar-
garita and instead of playing Spanish love songs beneath her window, the Americano took
her walking in the garden or canoeing on the river.
HMargarita was quite entranced. She forget that Pedro ever existed and the Amer-
icano stayed on and on all through the dry season.
"At last it came time for the annual Fiesta, Everybody for metros around attended
to see the beautiful decorations, hear the programs, and buy the pretty novelities. fruits
and sweets. After la reina de la tiesta, when the sun became a big red ball in the west,
the Queen of the Fiesta was chosen. The most beautiful Senorita of all was given the
flower-embedded seat of honor in the village plaza. After a good deal of shouting, clap-
ping of hands, and general confusion, it was customary for the Queen to choose a partner
and give a dance per la gente. This was the crowning event of the day.
"At this fiesta everything was beautifully arranged. Flowers were everywhere, in the
casitos, along the street and banked around the booths. Margarita had an especially
pretty booth, muy hermosa, decorated in red and yellow flowers. Ah Seuoritas, it was
magniticante! The red Howers matched her lips. they made her hair look blacker and
her eyes brighter. There. a'ways smiling, smiling, she sold sweet cake los dulces, a los
nipcs and to the villagers. All day I could hear ber sweet voice ring out among the
"'Dulces para vender, dulces para vender aqui! Para un centave, para un centava
solamentel' All day long her voice rang out among the music and the voices of the
t'At last the day grew short and the sun grew big and red in the VVest. It was time
to choose the Queen of the Fiesta. A general humming of voices rose over the crowd
which gradually grew louder and lcuder as the one name became distinct. 'Margarita
Margarita, we want Margarita' A roar of applause followed the decision and Margarita
smiling and blushing, was led to the flowery throne. How beautiful she looikedl
"Pedro stood near her, waiting for her to choose her partner. Always he had danced
with her in village fetes, always he had been her partner. He was recognized by every-
one as the lucky King of the Fiesta.
"Then Margarita rose, smiling at the people and held out her hand to--the Americano.
"Pedro was dazed. He watched the Americano mount the steps to the throne, he
followed them unconsciously to the village p'r1za. He watched the dance begin amid
cheering and clapping of hands. Then a blind fury seized him. Filled with a jealous
desire fer revenge he seized his dagger from its hilt and flung it at the whirling couple,
with all his might. A scream, and the beautifu' Margarita fell to the ground.
"The crowd gasped and became silent while the Americano carried her home-dead.
Two days later she was buried beneath the orange tree she always loved. A thousand
people wept beside her grave.
"The next day the American went on his way to investigate South American trade
"And, and Pedro?" gasped Louise.
"And Pedro?" groaned the old man, "I am Pedro" -MlLDRED COLE, 'Z4.

At the age of six years each child is put to work to unearth old King Education. The
old fellow is said to be buried deep down under the Desert Sands of Time. To reach him
it takes many long years of hard work and worry. You will. in many cases, d-ie for lack
of encouragement to quench your thirst.
First, you enter into a small room of the Kings tomb. So small is this room you
will have to crawl in on your hands and knees. As you proceed. the rooms become larger
and more difficult to enter. In each room you will encounter a bitter enemy, the King's
guard. They are eight in number for the first eight rooms. namely: Timidness, Timid-
ness II, Discontent, Discontent II, Loss of Interest, Loss of Interest II. Laziness, Lazi-

They are four in number. To pass through the rooms is a very difficult matter. You will
have Hard VVork to Fight, and he is a hard one to whip. You will have to depend
mostly upon your own ability to learn. By the trail you take, will the quality of your
character be shown.
As you enter the Senior room cf his tomb you have the feeling, UOnce out of this
room and into the next I shall Find King Education." What a disappointment when you
enter the next room to find only better tools to aid you i11 your unearthing of King

Old Clock on the Stairs" said "The Day Is Donefl "From My Armchair" I saw "The
Two Angels" pass "The Cross of Snow." They kept on walking, singing "The Song of

The "New Girl"
"Oh! Girlsll' cried Mary as she rushed up to a group of her cho'ice friends. "What
do you think! There's a new girl here this morning and she's homely as 'all-get-outl!"
"I saw her this morning in the hall and I think she is perfectly lovely," said Ioan.
"She smiled at me so friendly! I donlt think you girls give a stranger a fair chance. You
just form your opinions about people as soon as you see them and you never try to get
"Well, anyway, I know I shan't like her. The only thing that's pretty about her is
her black curly hair. And her nose shines, as if it never saw a powder-puff!"-this from
"Well,H retorted Joan, "if you'd think about something except powdering your nose,
maybe you'd get better grades!"
"Now, Ioan," plead-ed Rose, the peacemaker, 'don't get grouchy over such a trivial
thing as a 'new gir1.' Have you your French for today?"
Just then the bell rang and a teacher approached, so the girls thought they had better
withdraw into a classroom where they would finish their conversation in peace.
The next mo'rning found almost the same group of girls in the hall. When Joan
approached she found them deep in discussion concerning whom she could easily guess.
MI think she dresses too queer for anythingf, she arrived in time to hear Esther say.
"She's in one of my classes and I don't believe she looked around the room once, she just
sat and listened to Miss Bradely explain that theorem and she wouldn't even talk to her
neighbors! She's real snippy, I think!"
"And that's just where you are mistaken, Miss Esther Buggle," said joan, loyal little
soul that she was. It seemed as if Joan could not bear to have anyone accused unjustly,
especially, a stranger like this. "She's not the least bit snippy. She's in one of my classes,
too, and she seems to pick her work right up. One would think it would be hard, right in
the middle of the term, like this, but shc's just getting along fine."
"Well, I think--1
"Sh! Be careful!" warned joan, "there she goes now. She must be going to see
Miss Bradely. I wouldnlt have you hurt her feelings for anything!"
"Oh, well," said Esther, "I don't care if she knows it. Oh! there goes that bell and
I intended to study my lesson before school! Here I've spent all this time talking! Too
late now, I guessll'
Later, Joan met the "new girl" in the hall. "Oh, hello, Madeline," said Ioan sociably,
"I know your name but perhaps you don't know mine. It's Ioan Melbourne. It's so
hard to remember names in a strange town, isn't it?"
"It surely is," returned Madeline, with a friendly smile, "especially when you don't
know anyone at all!"
"Can't you come down to my house after school and get your French with me?"
,Ioan returned the smile so winningly that before Madeline knew it, she had accepted the
"All right, I'll 1neet you here in the hall after school. Don't forget!" And Joan was
off to her class.
. That nightuthe girls met as had been planned and Joan did her best to keep up a
lively conversation. This wasn't difficult to do as Joan found her new friend to be charm-
ing, interesting ,and talkative. When the two girls reached Joan's home they found that
Madeline lived just a block away. The next morning the two girls walked to school to-
gether. When Edith saw them coming, she sought Esther and said indignantly:
"I don't care! ,Ioan makes me tired. She just picks up with anytbodyl She'll wish
she hadn't some day."
"Well," replied Esther, "all I know is that I refuse to- have anything to do with her.
Gee! But I'm glad today's Friday, changing the subject." A
just then Joan came up. "Oh girls," she beamed upon them, 'fcan't you all come
down to my house Sunday? I'm going to ask Rachel, Rose, Mary, and I don't know who
all, and I'll expect you.', With this Ioan le-ft the group and went to the study room.
.HI wonder if she's going to ask that 'new girl'," observed Edith. "Maybe I won't
go if she does, she'll be bound to do everything to stick her into our crowd that she can."
I "Oh well, I'll go," said Esther, "and if I d0'n't like her I'll make an excuse and go
The next Sunday found all the girls, including Madeline, assembled in the large
comfortable living-room of the Melbourne's.
I "I think it's just lovely of you girls," Madeline was saying, "to include me in your
lively circle and make me feel so much at home."
THE BLUE AND GOLD
The girls made a desperate attempt to act civil although rebelling in their hearts.
The rest of the afternoon was so pleasant and jolly. It seemed that Madeline knew the
most games, and the latest steps and styles. She proved herself so lively, so entertaining
and so mannerly that she won the admiration of all the girls. Edith whispered to Rose,
"I wish I had known Madeline sooner . I never would have said those dreadful things
about her. After this, I'll never pass my opinions until I know what I'm talking about!"
!'Same here," Rose whispered back, "I've learned my lesson. I think she's real pretty,

Oh boy! isn't she a peach? Those eyes! Gee, I hope I make a touchdown today-it
I do I'll get a date with her. I'm glad I play in the backtield-got a chance to star.
That's right-I wonder if I am a star. I don't know-I might be sometime. Boy!
wouldn't I like to see the headlines in the paper, "SMITH GAINS MORE GROUND
THAN ALI. OTHERS PUT TOGETHER?" Vxlonder if they'd putymy picture in if I
star tomorrow. VVouldn't I like to see the word Smith in those big blazing letters? I
hope they pass a wild one so I can intercept it-w'on't I go? Huh, I guess. I'd like to
see 'em stop me. Then .wouldn't I be the "boy" though. I hope that just as I make that
touchdown somebody will tackle me and knock me clown and make my nose bleed. There
would be blood all over my face but it wouldn't hurt much. I wouldn't stop playing. I
guess then Id be the old hero. wouldn't I? I guess, I would.
I wish I was good lockin' and then if I'd win this big game, um boy! VVon't I get
my name in the headlines? D'ya s-pose she smiled at me then? Aw, shoot, she's lookin'
at this dizzy bird back of me. What can she see good about him? Somebody's always
takin' all the joy out of things, blame 'em.
W'ow! there goes that Five-minute bell and I've got three pages of French to trans-
late. I.et's see. What's this word? Aw, why don't they put all these words in the
vocabulary so a guy could find 'em! I wonder if this is the word. Yeh, I guess so. It'll
do anyway. Now, what's this? Gee! this is a hard lesson. Why the dickens do they
give us so much? They must wanta make us work so we can't play. Thatls what they
do. Um, I can hardly wait till this game. Wouldn't they yell if I made a diving tackle
and threw the man for a ten-yard loss? There goes that blamed bell. Oh, well! I should
worry, they canit make me ineligible-I play. '
CSO our hero gets up and starts to classroom very much resigned to his fate, but on
the way he meets Gregg, the famous coach, and speaks to him. The coach stopped him,
looking him over from head to foot.J
"Let's see, have I seen you out on the football tield this year?"

"Thatyll be hne, my boy.'l
Saying this the coach started away leaving Smith speechless. But he turned and
"Say, if you want to put on Jones' suit and come out with the team tomorrow you
can. What! you haven't any shoulder pads? VVell, you won't need 'emf'
Having about overdone himself by this burst of generosity the coach turned and
walked away, leaving our hero transfhxecl somewhat like a statue of marble, he looked so
petrified. The end of a perfect dream. Well, his heart was in the right place anyhow.

THE I3 LUE .eXNDC1Ol,lJ
XVagging tongues are like wagon tongues in that they are unuaturally long. The
tongue is an organ of speech. It is an important. useful and wholly necessary organ
which was given to us. not as an ornament but as a means of communication. To make
speech possible, however. it teo limited a use to apply to the tongue. Gossips generally
make it do more than that. johnny takes a morning stroll. espies a snake. and relates
his experiences to a woman on the street. who keeps the line of communication unbroken
by transmitting the information with a few added embellishments to her neighbors. So
the poor story goes the rounds. each minute gathering unto itself the character of an
unheard of calamity. NVhen johnny reaches home in the eourse of time. he finds that he
has been fatally bitten by a snake, that previous to being taken to the hospital he has
rolled about in the grass in mortal agony, that he has died and that he is so disfigured
that the authorities contemplate a private burial. Taken all in all. it seems that he has
passed a rather eventful morning since leaving the house on his little journey down the
road. It is not given to everyone to be one of the mourners at his own funeral. So much
for the creditable work of the gossips. If all the eases were as comparatively innocent
as this. the practice and its results would be bad enough. but not too bad.
This malicious wagging of tongues is generally prompted by envy. hatred. inattention
to one's own affairs. idleness or meddlesome curiosity. These persons do not seem to
realize that their gent'e indoor sport of figuratively tearing other people into infinitesimal
pieces is against the commandment which carries the injunction: "Thou shalt not bear
false witness against thy neighbor." A little forethought and consideration for others
would do away with a great deal of the tongue wagging.

On the night of April the 12th the negative team started southward to Kenton, with
Mr. Folk, his "Stude," a "Who is VVho" and a dictionary. Mr. Finton and the musical
contestants regardless of bumps followed close behind. The program started at 7:30, the
musical contest being held hrst. ln this Findlay took away two honors.
Then came the debate. The judges seemed to appreciate our six weeks of work and
struggle for the team won a unanimous decision. Q
The negative maintained that the United States should not have official representation
in the membership of the VVorld Court: in the first place, this VVorld Court is unneces-
saryg secondly, because a memibership in this World Court would not be consistent with
America's past and present policiesg thirdy, because membership in this NVorld Court
would be directly detrimental to the 'United Statesg and lastly, because this XVorld Court
is not the best means of promoting world peace because the Court is weak and im-
The Kenton team tried to break down the negative side of the question by painting
horrible pictures of war. The Kenton team appealed more to sentiment, while the Findlay
team used logic and cold facts. Too much credit cannot be given to Miss Cherrington
and Mr. Folk for their patience and untiring efforts in the coaching of the debaters,

Under the careful guidance of Mr. Folk. the above personnel began work in earnest
upon the question, "Resolved, That the United States should have official representation
in the membership of the VVorld Court." lt was soon realized that this momentous ques-
tion required hard work, deep thought and persistent effort. Complete mastery did not
come until every member of the team had exhausted the material in hand.
The deepest gratitude should be expressed to Mr. Folk, who was the instrument
through which this team became a success. The menrbers of the Bowling Green team
were good debaters, but their lack of material proved disastrous in rebuttal. The keen,
clear-cut reasoning of the Findlay debaters won a Z-l decision from the judges, upon the
following issues: Clj That the entrance of the United States into this Court would be an
act in accordance with previous and well-established American policies and American
idealsg C25 That this Court is the best and most necessary step toward international peace
and co-operation and, Q35 Our membership in this Court would be directly beneficial to
the United States, and non-membership would be directly detrimental to the United States.

"Roll of drums-Ra-ta-ta-ta-tat." These familiar words and sounds come forth from
the High School Auditorium every Friday night. This is the rehearsal period of the
Blue and Gold Band. This fine band attended every football game of the season and put
greater energy into otur "Big Goldf' This organization was a big factor in the wonderful
demonstration at Toledo Scott last fall.
The Public School Band of the present time is made up almost entirely of new
members. Over half of the band had never had an instrument of any kind in their hands
until the beginning of the school year. Then they set to learning how to become musli-
cians with a vim. From that time band music was taken up in the Public Schools as a
regular study. Lessons are being given to pupils once a week by Prof. F. C. Chapman
and his assistant, Ira Vail. They worked hard and, with the earnest efforts of the stu-
dents, they produced a band of some seventy pieces. This band has already mounted
the first few steps of the ladder of success, as was shown in their appearance in a home
talent show, "M yHome Town Girl." The band's part of -this program was mulch talked
about in the City of Findlay.
In the near future this organization aims to be one of the best in the state. They
have the proper fundamentals and teachings. They have worked consistently and intend
to until they have fulfilled this aim. Every member has the spirit and is willing to work.
The fact that they have 'had no experience is a great handicap, 'but as you Will dis-
cover they willl conquer this "right off that bat." -If you wish to see a real beehive

E just ean't think what the name of it M. Perhaps you would know if I hummed it
or you. ,
In her sweet, wavering voice she began humming the song to her aged companion.
As she hummed, her eyes seemed to brighten and her cheeks became tinted with pink.
All at once she stopped!
"I've thought of lit! I've thought of it!" she cried, "It's 'Ghosts of Little White
Rosesf We used to sing it in the Girls' Glee Club when I was in high school.
"I wonder where all 'the girls are now. There were about forty in the club. Mr.
Roberts was our director and a very Fine one, too. I just read in the newspaper last week
that he had retired-a very famous and wealthy man. Let me see-oh, yes, it was in
1924 that the Glee Club was so prominent. I remember singing several times before the
Assembly and at a Parent-Teachers' meeting. One night we sang for the opening num-
ber of the Lecture Course. Mr. Roberts was pleased with us that night." '
The old lady had gradually stopped rocking. I-Ier voice trailed away into air. Her
eyes again closed and there was a faint smile upon her face. She was again dreaming of
the t'Gh-osts of Little White Roses." .

Boys' Glee Club
If on any Monday morning, a crowd of fellows is seen bursting out of the auditorium
at the end of the fourth period singing "Oh, 'twas just a simple bonnet" with an un-
worried air suggesting that they don't care whether Cicero did deliver so many onations
or whether some angles equal one-half the intercepted arc, you can be assured that this
is the Boys' Glee Club.
Although the Boys' Glee Club did not attempt to appear much publicly, nevertheless,
the Glee Club was a real glee club. Through the direction of Mr. Roberts, the fellows
were taught the fundamentals of glee club singing. The club worked hard but along with
all this "labor diflicilisf' they enjoyed good times at all the practices. For the success
of the club great credit is due our booming basso profundo, Dick I-Iosler. I-Ie was always
there with his voice and helped a great deal in leading on new songs.
The Glee Club, however, did not remain idle all year but, when the Findlay Public
S-chool Band presented "My Home Town Girl,'l they asked a large part of the club to
participate which they did by taking the boys' chorus parts. Again, the Boys' Glee Club
was heard when they helped make the Music Departments annual opera, "Sylvia," a
success. One of the club, Dick Hosler, sang splendidly one of the leading parts, that of
"William." After the opera came the Eisteddfod at Lima in which the Boys' Glee Club
sang "Roll Awayl' by Tracy. Also the Glee Club was represented by members in a trio
whose number was "Home Again" by Pike, a quartettc, and the tenor and baritone solos.
After all it can very truthfully be said that this Glee Club year has been very success-
ful, for the Club participated in many school activities, and better still, it derived from the
efforts of Mr. Roberts, teachings which greatly benefited and improved its menrbers.
THE BLUE AND GOLD
The Eisteddifod this year capped the climax of our musical attainments and proved
that all our earnest effort was not in vain.
Last year when we brought home the banner and 113 points, our fame spread far
and wideg now after bringing back 133 points with the banner we have doubly empha-
sized our ability.
The Eisteddfod was held at Memorial Hall in Lima, April 25, with L. P. Evans, of
Atlantic City, as Adjudicator. The program was opened at three o'clock with Professor
Roberts as President, of whom all Findlay representatives felt justly proud. Mable
Gruber represented us as soprano soloist and although she was awarded only second
place we are proud of her work. The Boys' Trio came next with Ted Trackler, Virgil
Alspach and Vance Kramer, this also received second place. Howard Garber in the next
competition as tenor soloist, met ,with misfortune, but when the Girls' Glee Club stepped
down from the stage they carried off highest honors, for the Adjudicator pronounced
them faultless. We 'believe this success is what gave us all such abnormal appetites for
at this hour we adjourned for supper.
Seventy-thirty found us again in our respective places. Nellie Yoxthimer began the
evening with her alto solog the competition was close and Nellie was finally given second
place. Our Mixed Quartet composed of Florence Meyers, Nellie Yoxthimer, Dick Hosler
and Walter Rensch were exceptionally good in spite of the fact that they lost. They
were followed by the Boys' Glee Club who were placed first with Lima Central. Hooray!
Our second victory! Out of ten competitors for the Girls' Trio Ruth Marjorie Waggener
Florence Myers and Nellie Yofxthimer received honorable mention.
Then as we all expected, Dick Hosler put them all in the background when he was
awarded, without hesitation, the baritone solo.
It was very late when the entire chorus assembled on the stage. Were they tired?
You would not have thought so had you been listening, for they fairly Hwalked away"
with this prize.
Now, as we had spared our voices and enthusiasm all day, just at this thrilling
moment We made the auditorium ring with the famous "F-F-Fin."
Our ride home might be compared Cwith due respectsj to a triumphal march of
Caesarls for we were carrying home the spoils of a great victory. Here we pause to ask
to whom should all the credit and honor be givenj Unanimously we will say to our able
leader, Mr. Roberts.

On Thursday and Friday, March 13 and l4, the students of F. H. S. Music Depart-
ment appeaned in their annual opera. The great red curtains swung open and showed
the scene of haymakers at work in the field.
Sylvia, a court lady, is tired of her betrothed, Sir Bertram de Lacyg likewise Betty
is tired of "dear" Williram, a simple farmer lad. Betty wishes to marry a nobleman since
her highest ambition is to becclme a court lady. Sylvia and Betty meet in a large hay-
field where they decide to exchange sweet hearts as well as gowns for the rest of the
day since they each envy the other her lot. Betty tells of a flower called "Cupid's Eye"
which would blind p-o-et and farmer to the fact that such an exchange has been made.
They both deceived their lovers successfully.
Betty, delighted with de Lacy's flowery poetry. starts off with him for a 'tsoulful
shrldll down quiet lanes." VVi'lliam, with much difficulty leads Sylvia off to help him dig
potatoes and weed in the cornfield. At twilight Sylvia worn out from her experiences,
and Betty having run away from de Lacy and a raging bull, declare that hereafter they
will be content with their own lot.
Unfortunately their prank is likely to have serious consequences for Prince Tobbytum
resolves to expose Sylvia before the assembled court. However the Prince is foiled in
his mischief and everything is worked out most satisfactorily.
We cannot say too much for the charming Lady Sylvia. Mabel Gruber. She took
her part with ease and we all remember how vigorously she raked the haystack.
Betty, Dorothy Wiseily, proved to be a bashful country lass. Her clever actilng was
great! She and William made a happy couple.
Sir Bertram de Lacy was a dignified court poet whose coutrty manners and numerous
rhymes were ably taken care of by Dick Firmin. lt is no wonder that Betty was greatly
thrilled by his grace and expressive words.
One -of the favorites was Dick Hosler in the role of VVilliam. From his shock toff
red hair and his freckles to his leather leggings, "dear-William" was a sctream! He kept
the audiences in an uproar every time he appeared on the stage. The depth, volume and
beauty of his bass voice are well known to the public.
Comedy was afforded through the character of Prince Tobbytum, "a man of con-
sequence," taken by Gerard Hetrick. Gerard appeared so well versed in the ways of the
court that it is assured he could go into the court of England and make himself at home.
Ladies Arabella and Araminta showed their talent in their dance and song with

The haymakers did their bit. One of the most enjoyable choruses was the Farm

ability to Hirt.
Much credit is to be given to Miss Hill who coached the opetnetta, and to Mr.

The English Department
After a jolly feast, a menry group of normal school students gathered around the
radio to hear a famous educator talk on "An Ideal English Course for High Schools."
This noisy group did not act like the future teachers of the hope of our country, but the
minute the speaker began there was absolute silence.
"This is station K. W. D., Detroit, Professolr Kingley will give his lecture, 'An
Ideal English Course for High Schools'."
Professor Kingley: "Our young people must learn to think clearly and express
themselves well. They should also have a general acquaintance with English and
American Literature. A course that has these goals may be found in Findlay, Ohilo.
The finst point mentioned is taken up in the Freshmen and Sophomore years, the second
in the Junior and Senior.
"The Freshmen first take up a study of pronunciation, Irving's interestilng 'Sketch
Book' which contains stories like 'Rip Van Winkle,' 'The Spectre Bridegroom' and 'The
Legend of Sleepy Hollow' This is followed by a study of sentence structure, unity, and
coherence. As a fitting conclusion to this year's work 'Tihe 'Merchant of Venice' is studied.
"The Sophomore work is based on narration, description, exposition, and argumenta-
tion. It is introduced by written composition in which punctuation and spelling are
stressed. One of the most important of the parts of the work is the interesting class
discussions. In the latter part of the year a series of debates are arranged on current
and school questions.
"Along with story writing and story telling, Atkinson's 'Short Story' bo-ok is used.
During the year three classics are taken up: Dicken's 'Tale of Two Cities,' which marks
the height of interest in the year's work, Scott's 'The Lady of the Lake' and 'Julius
Caesar' which brings the yea-r's work to a tragic KFD close.
"In the Junior year, English Lilterature is traced from the songs of the scops and
'Beowul' to the modern writers. The lives and works of the authors are taken up and
the most important are studied in detail. Several of Shakespearc's dramas are readg
these are usually favorites of the students. Bacon's essays, Millton's works, and the
Roger de Coverley papers are other interesting studies. The poems of Burns, Byron,
Shelley, Keats and Coleridge and the novels of Eliot, Dickens and Thackery besides the
works of many more or less minor authors, constitute the rest off the work.
"The aim of the fourth year's course is to acquaint the students with the wealth of
American Literature, to show 'how it has advanced with American history, and to point
out the, tendency of modern wlrilting. This includes short stories, essays, novels, and
"The authors are taken up according to the section of the country in which they
live. Especial attention is given to the most important authors. Among these are Irving,
Cooper, Poe, Emerson, Bryant, Longfellow, Whittiier, Lowell, and Holmes. The novels
of Hawthorne and Mark Twain are well liked. The speeches of Lincoln, Webster, and
At this polint the lecture was cut off by an orchestra playing "Home, Sweet Home,"
and the group of young people decided that they had heard about all of the talk anyway.
Suiting their actions to the insinuation which might be gathered from the ra.dio's last
outburst, they turned their faces homeward.

The Aims and Purposes of the Scientific Department
The Aims and Purposes of the Scientific
Science, as the transformation of matter, governs practically every action. The
mere bouncing of a ball, every snowfall, every bonfire, the reflection of a mirror, the
sounding of a musical instrument, the melting of ice, the assimilation of food by our
bodies, in fact our very existence is controlled by laws of science.
The thoughtful study iof such familiar everyday happenings leads the scientist to
appreciate the wonderful material world about him. In the commonplace 'burning of
coal, the oxidizing of cainbon, and -in the mere boiling of water he sees the wonderful
action of millions of minute molecules. Even his own body seems more important, more
wdrthy 'of respect when he realizes the faultless arrangement of each perfect detail.
Wheli he understands that Science is so imperative, so vital to his own welfare he feels
that it has made possible manls progress from savage barbarism to his present independ-
ent tate and that the civilization of a country can well be measured by its development
Thus the Scientific Department expects to send fresh recruits into the fascinating
occupations in the broad field of Science to help in the advancement of civilizaition, and
hopes to give those in every walk of life a deeper understanding of the true valu-e of
nature. But appreciation of man's physical environment is only a step toward higher
thought. Does not 'the growth of a yellow daffodil thru sunshine and rain represent
more tlhan an ugly clod of earth burst into blooming life? Certainly the fact that the
elements miraculously fall into definite families or periods possessing similar character-
istics as marked as those of human families is enough to make an atheist fall to his
knees in worship. All the constancies, all the phenomena of nature pofint out-
'tThy bountiful care what tongue can recite?
It breathes in the air, it shines in the light,
It streams from the hills, it descends to the plain,
And sweetly distills in the dew and the rainf'
So the Science Diepaintment has good reason to hope and believe that it is making
better citizens and developing more perfect character, for it not only 'trains the mind but
leads to the appreciation of the finest, the noblest things in life.
-HELEN SLAGLE, 'Z5.
Modern History is literally just one Digest after another. In fact, some of our
students are known to suffer from chronic Literary Indigestion. However, this has
been fsomewhat relieved by a dose of spice, especially that variety known as the "Spice
of Li ef,
Ah! My Dear Reader, have you ever heard of that unparalleled instrument of tor-
ture, the outline? Yes, we have them and in bulk quantities! I have heard from those
who have attempted to escape them that the pill is worse than the ill. It is said Cof
counse, I cannot speak frofm experiencej that it is nerve-racking 'to sit through a class
unprcpa-red and unable to escape.
Now please donlt get the impression that our course is all ills and instruments of
torture, for it is not. We have a great many very interesting features. I believe that,
of these features, the introductions to each chapter, given in a very entertaining style by
Miss Kiefer, are the most interesting. We know that Miss Kiefer is capable of being
as excellent a lecturer as she is a teacher, which is no little compliment. She makes
history live by giving vivid portrayals of interesting incidents in a few well chosen words.
Then we have our special reports given by members of the class, treating of inter-
esting events and important personages in history. Besides these we have so many other
pleasing features that I couldn't tell you alll about them or about them all.
Of course, every class has its wit, its orator, its statistician and its map specialist.
With-ouit these, the class would be flat. Am I not right?
Talking all in all, History is like a pill turned "inside out" with the bitter alll on
the outsideg the deeper you go the better you 'like it. Taken with a dash of pep, a
pinch of enthusiasm, a good measure of study and a great deal of willingness, it becomes
a real pleasure.

mysteny, namely, the High School auditorium. Each managed to find a seat somewhere
in that impenetrable darkness withiln. Someone ventured to whisper, "What can it all

-THELMA STOUGH, 'Z4.
for biriilliancy-on that subject!
September 10, 1923, the juniors of Findlay High Soho-ol Spanish classes were put to
the test of their young lives. As we entered our respective classes we were greeted with
"Buenos Dias." This was a new experience for us. There we were, industrious boys
and girls, who could hardly understand our own language, and Miss Littleton trying to
get a litit'le of that lingo into our heads. VVe had a view of the work that lay before us
and set out to conquer it.
As time went on we discovered that the Spanish people were human beings just like
uns and that they had many expressions similar to ours. After studying Spanish for three
weeks we picked up a few expressions, and then we imagined we knew all there was
to know about the Spanish language. At dinner time we rushed home and greeted our
mothers somethling lliike this, 'lBuenos dias. senora. Como esta usted?" Then they looked
up in wonder and amazement and thought, 'tGoodness, my boy is doing fine in his
school work." A
Every day we learned a little more about Spanish people, their ways, and customs.
We soon found out that our teacher was willing to help us in any way she could. This
induced everyone to do his very best. By Christmas time we knew enough about Spanish
to give programs in all three classes. Talks were given of Spanish customs and how
"Navid'ad'l was celebrated "en Espainafl Some days Miss Littleton tellls us of the
peculiar ways of the Spaniardsg such as bull Hghts, carnivals, and hous.ing profblems.
At times wit 'seems as 'though we are hopeless cases, but our devoted -teacher never loses
her patience. Although we are not as well informed as our neighbors, the Seniors, we
hope sofme day to 'speak Spanish as well as they. We now are .able to understand a few
forms of Spanish verbs, and we no longer fear the invisible monster, Spanish, but con-
sider our classes as a source of pleasure. -GEORGE STUMP, '25.

Such a 'hurry and scurry when the door of the foods laboratory opened in September.
The girls not only gave their time and attention to the new cooking processes and
recipes, but learned the importance of food, what it is, how it is manufactured, its com-
position and nourishing value, how to buy economically, and how to combine foods to
the best advantage.
Smilingly ourhinstructor met us as we entered the dusty laboratory. After talking
about various subjects concerning cooking we acquainted ourselves with 'the cupboards.
Soon Miss Gerlaugh had us cleaning everywhere,
Then inn ousr shining la-bofratory we started one of the economical occupations of the
homeacannmg. We made Jelly and co-niserves, and canned, preserved and pickled our fall
fruits and vegetables.
Our few expenimentfs in the foods laboratory have helped us solve some of our
problems, such as: VVhat are carbohydrates, protein, mineral salts, fats and vitamines?
For experience in meal preparation, we made menus and served luneheons to our Sopho-
more and Home Roo-m instiructons. VVith the money from oulr successful bake sale, we
purchased articles for our department.
Leaving the laboratory we went to the sewing room and became interested in cloth-
ing problem-s, color harmony, type, texture, lines, cutting and making of woolen dresses.
Before selecting materials for our dressses we tested silk, cotton and wool. A few weeks
latter when the school-made dresses were hnished many were the styles and colors worn
by us in halls and home rooms.
After the Xmas recess we found awaiting us a general review. Everything we
knew about sewing and some things we did not know were su-rely given us. Then came
a speed problem. It was surprising the amount of hustle which some of the girls put
into their garments, while others seemed to interpret speed in a different way. After
the slowest speeders had finished, we put away our needles and pins and studied the
home. By drawing plans, writing descriptions and keeping our eyes open as we roamed
around the town, we learned all any professional housekeeper knows, and Cdon't tel'l
anybodyj lots that some don"t know.
Our instructor believing in safety first introduced us to "Home Hygiene and Care
of the Sick." After studying how to prevent and how to care for emergencies we
learned that invalids require certain kinds of food. VX-'e found it necessary to learn to
prepare convalescent dishes before the study of the care of the sick was completed.
Everybody likes to take trips and you can imagine our delight when we visited
furniture stores, ladies' furnishing departments and the man who cuts glass.
But a special fealture of the year must not be forgotten. This was the dinner which
we served to present and ex-members of the school board, the superintendent, architects
and their wives. Did they enjoy it? You should have seen their empty plates!

The Business Department
A large door, bearing the words, "Private Officef' in small precise black letters on
the glass, swung open. A tall, middle-aged man entered. He was a man of striking
appearance and, at the finst glance, any one could tell that he was a successful business
man. There seem-ed to be a business-like air about him. His quick, firm step and the
determined look on his face radiated courage. He was a man who early in life had
chosen a definite aim and who had reached the pinnacle of success.
He sat down at his desk and began sorting his mail. Some letters he readg others
he threw in the waste-paper basket. After finishing his mail he touched a button at his
right. Buzz-z-z-, went the bell, breaking the silence which seemed to envelope the room.
A door at the right promptly opened and a young girl en-tered. She was not a beautiful
girl, but there was something about her which attracted people to her at once. She wore
a plain dark dress with white cuffs and col-lar and comfortable low-heeled Shoes. Her
hair was neatly conibed and there was no need of artificial bloom on her Cheeks. In one
hand she carried a note book and a pencil. NVith a nod and a smile the business man
said, "Take this letter, pleasef' She sat down in a chair besikle his desk and tookithe
letter without a bit of hesitancy. Evidently she was a very capable sitenographer.
As soon as she left the room buzz-z-z-z, .went .the bell again. This time a young
man entered. One's first thought would be, "What a splendid young man!" and he was
entirely wonthy of being called a splendid young man. He was slowly but surely climb-
ing the ladder of success. His employer greeted him with a smitle and said, 'tLook up
Cotm.pton's account and find the date and amount of their last purchasefl The young
man left the room and returned almost immediately and gave his employer the desired
The large door opened and another young man entered. He held his head high,
his shoulders back and had a smile on his face. His employer arose from his chair,
saying, 'LI .know you got ilt! Shake!" This young man had a.right to hold his head
high. He h'ad succeeded where others had failed. He had made a sale to one of the
most difficult customers in town. He was an efficient salesman.
Perhaps you wonder who these young people are and where they received their
training. They represent only a few of the graduates fnom the business department of
the Findlay High School. The course of study which the commercial students receive
prepares them for almost any li-ne of business work. The lirst two years is spent in
learning how to make trial tballances, profit and loss statements, what to credit and what
to debit or, in other words, it teaches the students the fundamenal principles of book-
keeping. It teaches them accuracy.
In the Junior and Senior year the commercial -students take up stenography and
typewriting. In these two years the students receive training for the work they would
be expected to do in an oHi'ce.
Two other important subjects which we study are Commercial Law and Salesman-
ship. Commercial Law is that part of civil law which has to do with the relations of
persons in business. The study of Commercial Law does not enable us to become our
own lawyers, we receive only such information as is necessary for every business person
Salemanship is a very important study. It not only teaches the student how to
become a good salesman, but also increases his ediciency in his other subjects. It
awalkens him to the realization of his possibilities. It teaches him to devevlop his person-
ality and .how to study human nature. It makes him acquainted with himself. A person
must know all 'these things in order to become an etiicieint salesman.
We commercial students feel that we are of some importance in this wo-rld because
the business man cannot get along without us and the world cannot get along without
the business man.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
What does the word t'Mathematiics" bfring to your mind? To the majority it will
bring 'the thought of alll the different ways in which it is used. This thought would
impress upon them the importance it has in this world of ours. VVhat would this world
do without it? It would certainly be greatly effected.. Our industries would be orippled
for how could the chemist solve his formulas, 'the surveyor his triangles and many other
odd figures. Even in our own every day life we need it.
Without thinking a great ideal along this line we might think mathematics play only
a very minolr part in the ,life of an ordinary person. This is not so, because it plays
qui-te an important part in the daily routine of everyone. Every day we are met by
probllemis which require calculations of some sort. Some are quite simple and easiilly
solved while others are more complex and not so easily solved. In many instances,
p-robllems can be solved in several ways, but generally there is ia shorter and simpler
way. Mathematics teaches us these shorter and simpler methods and teaches us 'to think
and work accurately and quickly. A person only appreciates a good mathematical under-
standing when he comes in contact with a problem which shows him its usefulness.
In the manufacturing and scientific world mathematics play a more important part.
It is there that it is made use of in all its forms. Some calculations contain figures too
large for ordinary solution so we carry it to a higher branch of mathematics where we
find a very simple method to calcullate large numbers quickly and accurately. In the
manufacture of an electric motor, there are formulas for almost every piece in its con-
structiong the size of wire, size of shaft, size of motor, surface of coils, numbers coils-
practically every artiole in its construction has some formula connected with it. This all
goes to show what part mathematics play in manufacturing.
To a high school student, the subject seems inexhaustible. The first year is simple
enough learning the fundamental principles of Algebra. Then comes Plane Geometry in
the Sophomore year where he proves the formulas used in Algebra and Arithmetic which
apply to figures of two dimensions. In his Junior year he studies more Algebra and, in
the second semester, he studies solid Geometry and proves formulas applying to figures
of three dimensions. In his Senior year he studies Higher Algebra the first semester and
Trignometry the second semester.
So it is. We can continue to study higher and higher branches of mathematics, and
each new branch shows us more of its importance and world-wide use.
-F. I. T., G. S.
The Value of Geometry
Geometry is a branch of mathematics that deals with figures and space. The word is
Greek, signifying space, but in a broader sense it has many important uses other than that
of measuring heights, distances and the like.
It is of great value in teaching students to think and speak accurately, for, in this
study, a statement is worthless without proof. Thus it is often spoken of as an exact
Geometry is also very practical. The builder finds that boards fitted together to
form a triangle make a very rigid frame, in fact, the only one known. Geometry gives
the reason. Without it, rules for finding areas, perimeters, and the like would be merely
Thus it is evident that time spent on Geometry is not worthless, and may prove use-
ful in the future.

We have often heard it said that Latin is a dead language, but in the hands of the
Latin Department this year it certainly has been as lively as our dear old English lan'
guage. This has been a very successful year for the Latin Department. VVe are very
proud to speak of our "Latin Exhibit and Program," which was so successfully given
March the twenty-eighth.
All classes in the Latin Department cooperated with one another in this exhibit and
program to further its success. Many interesting posters were displayed showing how
many English words are derived from Latin. Also there were posters showing the
Latin in the State Sealsg comparative study of furniture, comparative study of utensils
and many others. There were maps of Caesar's battlefields made in clay and dolls
dressed in Roman costumes. The Freshmen had note books on display showing the
Latin derivation in the English words of today. All these were of interest and surprised
the public to know the common and continued use of Latin in our every day life. Many
clever posters advertising the exhibit and program were placed in the various store win-
dows. These attracted much attention and aroused the interest of the public. Even the
tickets for the program were greatly admired. They were printed in Latin in the Roman
colors, purple and white.
The Latin program consisted of a production from each class, and the lighting and
scenery added much to the features of the evening. The Lincoln Freshmen contributed,
as their share, a scene showing how the Roman boy received the 'toga of manhood. The
Washiiigton Freshmen gave a series of pictures showing the life and customs of the
Romans. These were very much enjoyed by the audience and we feel that the Fresh-
men slhould be highly praised for their part in the pnogram. The Sophomores gave a
Roman wedding. This made a very pretty scene and was well carried through by all
the actors. The Juniors gave "The Vestal Virgin Drillfl Francis Fiegle as Sibyl guided
the Fates. It was given very well and prailsed by all. The Seniors carried off the climax
of the evening with a play. This was well given and much praise should be granted to
the cast of 'twenty-three, The leading characters were the followings:
Dido --------f---- Louise Askam
Aeneas - Ralph King
Anna Muriel DeHaven
Anicula Ruth Reimund
Iarbus -f----f ---- E rlwarcl Misamore
Under the supervision of M.ss jenkins. Miss liuenzii, and Miss Moore the various
classes received excellent coaching, and much credit is to be given to them for the
success of the evening.

Le Departement de francais
The French Department has been quite successful this year in teaching the student-
Hcomment parler francais." That is, the Juniors were taughtg the Seniors of course,
had nothing more to learn. However, the Senior French classes were kept quite busy,
and finally came to the conclusion that perhaps there was some knowledge left for them
to acquire in this line.
Mademoiselle Hill assumed her old duties in this department as our Uprofeisseure
charmantef' Monsieur Huxtson efficiently took charge of some of the junior classes.
They progressed quite rapidly and satisfactorily, and after finishing the first half of the
French text bofolk, started "Le Beau Pays de France" by Spilnk. This book contains a
number of charming French stories and legends. The Juniors liked it immensely.
The Seniors, after hnishing the last half of the text book, began the story of "L'Ab'be
Constantin" by Halvey. This book has been dramatized and produced on the stage. It is
a very pretty story of simple, good-natured, middle class people of France, who are
represented by the character of Jean Renaud and L'A'bbe Constantin, and the American
family of which Madame Scott and Bettina Percival play an important part. It gives
the reader a good idea of French life and customs at the end of the Nineteenth Century.
The well known French story and play, ULes Miserables" by Victor Hugo was
read later and greatly enjoyed.
Along with our class room work, we have a sort of Current Event day, when we
have reports taken from "Le Petit Journal." This is a little French newspaper, printed in
New York. These days always prove interesting as it gives the student some insight into
prominent French affairs. Another variation in this department is the French Club or
Le Cercle Francais which consists of Seniors.
The aim of the French Department has been to give the students an understanding
of the French language, so that they may be able to read, write, understand, and even
try to speak it. Last but not least a big ailm is to give them an introduction to some of
the delights of French literature.
On the whole, we thinlk the French Department has succeeded in its aims, for it
has adhered to its outline o-f duties and has been rewarded by seeing them accomplished.
In other words, as the old French proverb says, i'D'ailleurs au bout du compte, ce n'es't
guere que dans le devoir que se trouve bonheurf'

To G. H., E. C. and L. D.
Should you ask me whence this story
Regard of students for their teachers,
With the background of the classroom,
From the memories of our school days.
Memories of our patient teachers,
Of their self-forgetting giving,
Help both in and out of elassroomsg
Of examples they have set us-
Those of close pursuit of duty
And a striving for the betterg
Always lifting, always boosting,
Always working for our good?
From the talks in halls, in classrooms,
From the glowing hearts of students
Who by these, themselves have conquered,
Have I gathered this, my knowledge
Of the feelings of the students.

The Sociology and Economies Department
At the first of this eventful year. there was a certain subject which seemed to
appeal strongly to a great number of Seniors, and as a result, on tliait hrst Monday
morning, the Sociology class was crowded. Yes, we liked it immensely, this huge class,
held in the none too large sewilng room. Miss Bright was our able instruictress.
The book we used, enitiitled MSc-icial Problems" by E. T. Towne, was a study and
discussion of the problems melt with after we leave school. For instance, we learned
all about the Child Labor Question, Immigration. Labor Organizations, Unemployment,
The Liquor Problem. Poverty, and Marriage and Divorce. Some other important chap-
ters were on, The Blind and Deaf, and The Feeble-minded and Insane. VVhile studying
this chapter two members of the class visited the Opportunity School, and gave short
talks on what they had observed.
Our class room was based on a study of the text book, current magazines, news-
papers and library wcrk. Several times during the year, well informed authoriiities gave
us short talks dealing with some of the subjects already mentioned. Miss Turley spoke
of the work being carried on in the Childrenls Homes, Miss Priddy on Associated
Chariities, judge Duncan on Courts and Law Procedure, and Mr. J. E. Betts on Divorce.
We appreciated these talks and were very grateful to the speakers for giving us such a
part of their valuable time. VVith the conclusion of this book, we began our work on
Thomas N. Carver's
Elementary Economics is the study of the management of government and business

about the "Quality of the Peoplef' t'Butstiness Organiization-s" which includes a discussion
of "Capital and Labor" and the "Division of Labor."
VVe have had a few special reports from different magazine articles, on this subject,
and are expecting a short tailk on "Banking and Finance" by Mr. A. R. Moul, a

Religion." This topic is convincingly dealt with by Mr. Carver. After this we learn

-MARY L. OSWALD, 'Z-1.
Not long after school began, the student body learned that a course in Art would be
offered as an elective study. This yearis course has been merely a beginning of thiis
type of work in Findlay High School, a stepping stone to the further development and
growth of a recoignized art course.
Special emphasis is being placed on design and color, by working ont posters,
interior decoration projects and conventional designs.
VVe do not study ant now because we all expect to be artists, nor because it is a
"fr?ll" or a little added decoration to our education. Art has a place in every phase of
living. Everything we use or do is associated in some way with it. Sonieioine designs
automobiles, cooking stoves and potato-mashers. VVC puzzle over color schemes for our
houses, or we wonder what oollors we should wear. A knowledge of art priiniciples is a
decided help, whether it be in arranging home or a store window.
Next year with more room and more time the possibilities -for the course will be
greater. lt will be offered as a regular course of study and credits will be given for it.
Mists Abbott has very ably carried out the work and under her dfilrection the course
will accomplish things worth while.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
Manual Training Department
Our public schools are called upon today to teach a greater variety of subjects than
ever before. The activities of society are becoming more complex each year, and, con-
sequently, more demands are made upon the curriculum of the schools. One of the
more important demands is that for instruction in industrial education and mechanical
work. There is greater interest manifested in mechanics and the study of raw materials
due to the fact that nearly everyone, including to some extent women and girls, is
either directly or indirectly interested in the mechanical work. It is not uncommon to
find schools having classes for girls in mechanical drawing, elementary woodworking or
auto mechanics. This shows the added interest taken along this line.
The industrial work in the Findlay High School is organized at the present time
mostly to meet 'the need of trailning for practical etliciency rather than a vocational train-
ing, such as we find in the trade schools.
The industrial Work in our High School is organized to give the pupils a broader
development, through correlation with his other subjects, in addition to the mechanical
training. The work consists almost entirely of laboratory pro-jects arranged to meet the
needs and desires of each member of the class. Each pupil is required as much as
possible to design and work out plans for' hits own problem, by the aid of the instructor.
It is the aim to develop by this method the initiative, imaginatiofn, individuality and
mechanical albility of the pupil, as each one works on the problem of pair-ticular interest
to himself. The work at present consists of bench work for the Freshman throughout
the year. This includes shop drawing and construction of elective ptr-oblems which give
practice in all the fundamental principles of the work and is the foundation for ad-
The second year of the Hilgh School work is divided into two parts. The first half
year is devoted to mechanical drawing. The second half is given to cabinet work.
The work in mechanical drawing might well be thought of as a study of the graphic
language. We learn in fthe study of English how to express ideas in Words, Words are
ilnsuflicient to express our ideas in the mechanical world, for here we End need of a new
language. This language is expressed with lines and synibols commo'n'ly mentioned as
the graphic language, but more frequently called mechanical drawing.
It is unfontunate that we do not have sufficient room at present to accommodate all
the pupils who wished to enroll for the work in drawing. lt is hoped that it-he new
annex will furnish this needed space.
The work in drawing includes practice in the following: fundamentals, lettering.
orthographics, isometric, oblique and cabinet projections, revolutions, in'tersections, ma-
chine drawing, sketching, architecture or house planning, tracings and blueprinting.
Sophomore cabinet work consists of more complex construction, including upholster-
ing, panels, period furniture and larger projects. In this work more attention is given to
design and different methods of finish.
The chief objective of the Manual Training Department is to arrange the work to
meet the mechanical needs of the pupil entering an industry upon completing his High
School course and for practical ediciency in his daily life. Another purpose is to furnish
a training that will serve as a foundation for pupils who expect to pursue a technical
course in an advanced school.

The Faculty Club
The Faculty Club of Findlay High School is completing the second year. of its
organization. Although the club was formed very spontaneously, it has, nevertheless.
continued to till its place in the social life of the teachers of the High School. lts chief
aim is social and this ai1n has been adhered to strictly in all the meetings.
Mr. Kinley leads the Club as its president. Miss Bernice Kieffer is the secretary-
treasurer. The meetings are arranged by a committee composed of different members of
the Faculty chosen from time toitime. Y
The social affairs of the Faculty began this year with a picnic at Pleasant Grove.
All sorts of games were played and the Faculty showed their ability to enter into them
with "pep" and spirit.
Since that time pleasant times have been enjoyed at the homes of the Misses Swine-
hart, Crates, Cratty, Kieffer, Mrs. Bishop. and Mr. Kinley. Undoubtedly in the spring
the club will hold another picnic in the woods, which will close our round of festivities.
This club holds a place in the life of the teachers with which they would not readily
dispense. In a faculty as large as that of our school the teachers need an crganization of
this sort to keep the spirit of good fellowship fresh.

UI-Iere comes one of our little Junior friends. She looks very grave and serious and
I wonder what can be the trouble. I do 'hope she is not going to ask me something very
ditiicult because I may not be aible to answer' it."
"Come in. Yes, I am a member of the Senior Commercial Club that was organized
in October, 1923. It is one of the largest and most active clubs Findlay High School has
ever had. With Mildred Cole as President, Virginia Curtiss, Vice-presidenltg Mable

'fThis organization shall be known as the Justamere Club." Such is the beginning of
the constitution of one of the largest clubs in Findlay High School.
With Miss Cherrington as our 'fBiig Sisterl' the Senior Effective Speaking class
started the fifth active and effective year of the Justamere Club. The first thing to be
done was to look to the Juniors as recruits, and so, on a nice evening in September, at
the Pleasant Grove Church, these recruits showed that they really deserved to be in the
club by their stunts. After viewing Hreworks to commemorate the occasion the initiation
was completed and a real justamere Club was formed.
Soon a time came for a program. This afforded the Justameres a chance to show
their worth to the School. A Thanksgiving program was successfully put on and was
enjoyed and appreciated by the school..
At this time cf the year, when people have the spirit of Thanksgiving in mind, there
are always the needy, the deserving and the unfortunate, who have little to be thanfkful
for. The Justameres showed they did not forget tfhese people by their liberal contributions
to Thanksgiving baskets.
Again F. H. S. looked to Iustameres for a program portraying the Christmas spirit.
These wants were quickly satistied for some of the Juniors of the club at this opportunity
displayed their dramatic art. ,
To' close the school before the holiday vacation the Justamere and French Clubs came
together in a grand Christmas party.
After vacation the Junior play was presented. At this event girls from the various
clubs very attractively dressed in caps and aprons sold confections among the crowd.
Some weeks later the play was reproduced as a benefit to these clubs and again the
crowd witnessed and paitronized the confectioners. 'Throughout the whole year the
crowd, being entertained by some activity of the school, found these confections to be
In oratory and debate the justameres shone bysending a Senior to the oratorical
contest, held at Ottawa, and Hlling all the places on the two debating teams.
Looking forward to the remaining part of the year, and realizing what has been do'ne
in the past, we feel the Iustameres will have Hlled the cup to the brim and We hope, as
we leave the school, to see others taking up the active work of the Iustamere Club.

The French Club
A third happy year for the French Club has almost passed. Those pupils maintain-
ing an average of eighty per cent were admitted to that envied circle which meets
once a month.
Miss Hill, the sponsor of the club, has been chiefly responsible for these enjoyable
sessions. The program committee also deserves a great deal of credit for the hne pro-
Ruth Reimund. as president, has kept us iln order during business sessions, and is
ably seconded by Mary Oswald. Jeannette Badger performs her duties as secretary,
while Beryl Anisler tries 'to collect the dues.
NVQ started the year by holding a Halloween Party in October at Jeannette Badger's.
The costumes were very clever, especially the "twins." In November the club members
gathered at the home of Doris Alexander where "The Courtship of Miles Standish" was
given in pantomime. john Newton was very stunning as "john Alden." The Justameres
and French Club combined to give a Christmas party at the HY" in December. lt was a
great successg just ask anyone who rode around the gym on a Kiddie Kar. The January
meeting was less exciting but instructive, the members responding 'to roll call with Cur-
rent Events given in French. .-X few meetings and a banquet in May are still looked for-
The French Club was also interested in other activities. It promoted the staging of
the operetta, l'Sylvia." Several members appeared in this prolduction, while Miss Hill
helped greatly with the coaching.
This year Le Cercle Francais introduced a new custom by securing club pins orna-
mented with a gold cock as a fitting emlblem of France, and, therefore, of our club.
lt is our wish that future members of this charmed cincle may carry on our aims and
ideals, and thereby gain instruction and enjoyment equal to that we have secured.

minutes we almost believe that we are 'tluas Senoritas de Espana" tossing a rose from
a high window to a sweetheart serenader. Clap! Clap! Clap! The meeting is over all
Do we have parties? "Como no!" I guess we do. In October we had a big time at
the home of Catherine Hirscher with a program, games, eats 'n everything. Then our
Peon Party at Harriet Runyans'! VVl1'at fun we had dressing as poor Spanish people.
Harriet fooled us too by serving us "pan y agua"-and we devoured it all Hmientras que"
wishing that we had eaten more supper. Poor Frank Tremains was so hungry that he
drank about three glasses of water. Then they brought us hot tamales, apples and dough-
nuts. Hurrah! How we ate! Later some of the football fellows with pink carnations in
their lapels dropped in after a banquet. A grand rush followed. What a time! We
had some Junior visitors and we believe that we showed them "el mejor tiempo de todas
"Where did you get those darling pins? Aren't they cutelv Exclamations came
from all sides as we Seniors proudly exhibited our little red Spanish Club pins. And
no wonder for they have a meaning. Ask a Senior if you want to know what the Castle
and Lion stand for.
In January we decided to enlarge our bank account "en vista de La 'Banquete" in the
Spring for the Juniors. Our club. with the Commercial and justamere Clubs, adopted
the novel plan of selling candy at the operetta and class plays. lt proved very success-
ful. Then our good neighbors, the juniolrs, increased our financial standing considerably
by repeating the junior Play for the benefit of the clubs of the High School.
"En tin," 'the Spanish Club has filled a place in our High School lives that will not
soon be forgotten. The jolly times that we have. enjoyed will stand out in our memories
as among the best that we have ever had, andthe knowledge that we have attained from
the study of the language willhelp us all along life's path. So here's to the Spanish Clulb.

The Varsity Club
This is the latest thing in clubs at Findlay High School. It was first recognized as
an otiicial club of the school this year and since then has attracted no little attention. It is
made up of all the letter men in attendance at school and everybody knows what a lively
gang they are. Sixteen live wires, all capable olf giving forth a shock. It has been the
custom of the club to have a feed and get-together meeting every two weeks, and what
feeds and celebrations we have! At each meeting, or nearly every one, we have had
some prominent, experienced man of the city give us a talk and every member has left
these meetings inspired by his words.
Further proof of the value of the club lies in the fact that its members stand for
clean athletics, clean scholarship, and the promoting off all school activities. Have any
of the clubs a liner purpose? But we all know that purpose isn't anything unless you
carry it out and this club surely has the will to carry out its creed. We have promoted
school activities by selling tickets and ushering at gamesfwe have promoted good will
between teams in athletics by furnishing an escort to all visiting terms.
We are at this time planning for the initiation of those eligible to membership. We
are going to have some time! just leave it to us! Already the candidates are growing
thin from worrying about what may happen to them, but all we have told them is to
'tbewarefl These new members along with those left by the graduating class will take
the club on their shoulders next year. May they be successful! '
In this body are men of all three sports, working for the betterment of all. 'tln union
there is strength."
VA great amount of credit is due to our "Bob" Fletcher for his untiring efforts in
making thevclub a success. It was through him that we First realized such a club.
The officers of the club were Frederick Learey, Edward Misamore, Richard Firmin
and Arthur Hendrieksg respectively, president. vice president, secretary and treasurer.
Here's a toast to a glorious future. May future coaches and players of our F. H. S.
carry on the work and enlarge what we have started and may they be successful.

The Hi-Y Club
The Hi-Y Club was organized in October. 1923 under the' supervision of Burton
C. Houseman, Boys, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. Officers were elected as follows:
Richard Blackburn ---- ----- P resident
Mack Vorhees Vice President
Frederick Leary ------- Secretary-Treasurer
The Hi-Y Club is a national organization composed of the more mature high school
boys, every one of whcirn is committed to the declaration of a purpose to "create, main-
tain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian char-
acter." The Hi-Y Club promotes clean speech. clean sports. clean scholarship and clean
living. lts distinctive features are not simply the personal development of the boys who
are members, but the performance of individual and collective services to the school and
community. This challenge to service may well form the foundation upon which the
whole club plan and program is built. '
An advisory board consisting of R. K. Davis, F. L. Kinley, A. E. Brooks, Robert
Fletcher and Rev. B. W. Zeigler take an active interest in the club and sponsor its
The season's activities began with an observaiticn trip to the Fostoria Hi-Y Club as
their guests at the Annual Induction Ceremony. Four boys attended the State Hi-Y
Conference at Zanesville. Nine boys attended the District Hi-Y Conference at Lima
Where they were officially inducted into the State Hi-Y Organization. Meetings are held
weekly with Bible study and discussion. Two school stags at the Y. M. C. A. and four
chapel periods were conducted by the Club. They also launched the 1924 Blue and Gold
subscription drive and brought it to a successful hnish. The most outstanding activity
Was the Campaign of Friendship during which all the boys of the high school were given
an opportunity to receive helpful counsel in their personal and school problems by ,public
address and personal interviews with selected men.
The Hi-Y pin consists of a red triangle in the center of which is a white cross.
The cross stands for purity in thought and action. The red triangle withvits three sides
stands for growth in body, mind and spirit.
The splendiid progress cf the Hi-Y Club tli's year indicates that it will be of valuable
service to Findlay High School in the years to come,

l "Come Out of the Kitchen"
HACOIIIG Out of the Kitchen' is the best amateur show that has ever been given in
"If I had just happened in here and knew nothing concerning it I would think that
this show was produced by a cast of professionals."
These and many similar remarks from citizens of Findlay, show the keen appreciation
that the public felt for the Junior play. It was successfully produced on Feb. I and re-
produced on Feb. I3 for the benefit of the Iustamere, Spanish and Senior Commercial
Clubs. The Junior Class wishes to 'thank all who helped to make this play a success.
"Burton Crane is a very Hnc fellow. isn't lie?" "Of course, of courscf' Indeed, he
is and he lived up to this reputation in the hearts of the audience. This part was taken
by Lawrence Goodman, who as a northern gentleman, rented the Daingertield's southern
mansion for 355000 for six weeks. Many were the escapades he encountered when he
reached his destination, and finally succeeded in bringing jane Ellen "Out of the Kitchen."
"Oh culinary rnarvelll' Olivia Daingerfield, alias Jane Ellen, played by Rachel Hay-
ward, was an attractive girl whose idea it was for the four children to take the place of
the missing white servants Ca very important item in the leasel for' about four days until
the missing ones arrived. Mr. and Mrs. Daingerfield were abroad fighting for Mr.
Daingerfield's life. Hence, the predicament of the children, alone and "broke.'l
"Oh, I reckon we'll pull through if Bess doesn't explode," but that's just what she
did-explode. Elizabeth Daingerfield, alias Araminta, taken by Nellie Badger was a
saucy, high-tempered girl and caused many funny predicaments throughout the play with
many displays of temper in her part of housemaid.
"Really, the boy has an excellent manner." Paul Daingerfield, alias Smithneld, the
oldest of the family tried to keep peace and order in the family. He made an ideal butler
with his 'texcellent manner." This part was taken by VVayne Cramer.
i "Huh, what about yourself and all the things you do?l' Charles Daingerfield, alias
Brindy, played by James Sutton, was the useful boy for the boots, who kept things stirred
up and was a wonder' at breaking dishes.
"How'dye honey-how'dye." Helen Billstone, in the role of the colored Mammy, was
a kind old soul who has been with the Daingerlields, as the Mammy of Olivia for many,
many years. Now that she had to leave her it nearly broke her old darky's heart.

Crane's and a Snoopy, inquisitive old lady, who caused much havoc among the servants.
"I forgot the old geezer's boots." Carl Swinehart portrayed the part of an elderly
gentleman who thought a lot of himself and was forever trying to make love to Jane Ellen.
"Oh Randy, you are a darling." Randy Weeks, played by Earle Fout, was the family
lawyer who was greatly attracted to Jane Ellen and had a great deal to do with getting
the four children into this predicament.
"And you are a very pretty girlf' Cora, played by Genevieve Dunn, was the daughter
of Mrs. Faulkner who tried her best to marry her to Burton Cnane.
"Oh, Mr. Lefferts, are you really a poet?l' Indeed, he was. Lefferts, or Charles

between them. Mr. Crane made him editor of the Financier and he won Cora at last.

F. H. S. 'tStag Parties"
The year 1923-1924 seems to' be an important one in the annals of F. H. S. for this
year has seen the birth of several new institutions. Among these, without a doubt, these
so-called "Stagsl' rank high in importance. Never before was anything like this under-
taken and up to this time we have put over two of them, both huge successes. Men who
had attended high school years ago and some not quite so long ago stood with open
mouths and eyes shining from joyful surprise when they beheld these parties and real-
ized their possibilities. They said, "Go to it, we're for you. These are just what we've
been looking for." VVilth such encouragement we certainly did "go to it."
These "Stagsl' are primarily to promote true and good fellowship and it is through
such get-together meetings that the fellows learn to appreciate each other and know one
another in their true light. Mr. H. B. Carpenter's memorable speech on 'tFellowship"
which he delivered at one of our 't'Stags" will demonstrate the great good obtained from
such a meeting. To top it all off the fellows all had a good time and bushels to eat.
Pnoof that the fellows all had a good time comes from the fact that even though it
rained and the thermometer registered zero over two hundred fellows with undampened
spirits attended each one. They all came full of expectations and left full of satisfaction
Furthermore, another important phase of school life was encouraged by these meet-
ings. That was the betterment of relations existing between teacher and student. Every
boy present received a hrme: and more fixed appreciation of his teachers and in turn the
teachers began to real'ize that their efforts were not being put forth in vain and really
seemed to feel proud of their students. This feeling is further brought about by the
fact that in such a gathering the teacher is on an equal basis with every boy and
the fellows begin to feel and realize that the teachers are really all-around good fellows
and really human. Doesn't every teacher deserve tio be recognized as such? After
each evening was completed the fellows left with absolute'y different, deeper, friendlier,
and closer feeling toward each teacher. More than one student pointed to a teacher
and said, HI didn't know it before, bu-t believe me he's a real fellow." Could any
teacher hope or desire more from one of his students?

spirit found out that they were sadly lacking. They learned that true school spirit was
brought about only by the everyday careful attentions of each one to the welfare of the
school. All these count-discipline, attitude, loyalty, helpfulness, respect, and the hrm
boost given to each and every activity the school takes part in.
The Findlay Y. M. C. A. deserves a great amount cf thanks for the loan of their
gym floor and for their cooperation in these meetings.
The faculty at Findlay High School can rest assured that their aid in promoting
these "Stagsl' has been greatly appreciated. Vtlithout their aid we could never have
succeeded. . , .

Before the Christmas vacation rhetoricals were given on Friday afternoon by mem-
bers of the junior Effective Speaking Class. The entertainment consisted of a one-act
play entitled, t'Upon the VVaters." The play was 'based on the Biblical verse, "Cast thy
bread upon the waters and it will return after many days."
The bread was cast by Becky, an old lady, who gave nearly everything she had to
charity. Her brother, Benjamin, after many years absence comes back on a visit and buds
she is unhappy. He believes the reason is because she misses her old comforts. He goes
about to make Becky happy again. He is assisted by his two nieces, Eleanor and Martha,
and Becky's housekeeper, Mrs. Smithson. Later he finds to his dismay that his sister is
sad because she cannot help the pocr. They succeed in making her happy, not by fine
furniture, but by supplying her with things to give her "poor folks."

At last, the Sophomores got a chance to show their skill and knowledge to their
superiors, the Junior and Seniors, when on February twenty-first they gave.the VVash-
iugton and Lincoln rhetoricals. The program endeavored to show the connection between
these sterling citizens and the American of today, as well as, to commemorate the birth
anniversaries of these two great presidents.

This year the girls have learned to know one another better, to have a kinder feeling
toward the new members of the school, and to feel that the school and the faculty are
interested in them. One of the principal reasons for this change is due to the fact that
this was the first year there has ever been a Dean of Girls, and in filling this capacity

thoroughly enjoyed it. She has been "our big sister" and has in turn taught us to be
Every year the Sophomore girls do not feel quite at home durilng the first few weeks.
The assembly looks so large, the faculty so severe, and the changing of classes so con-
fusing. But this year, by means of the sponsor or "big sisterl' system, the Sophomore
girls really enjoyed the first days of school and what was more important they formed
friendships which were and will be worth while. Certain junilor and Senior girls were
chosen to act as sponsors and each was given a list of the names of new girls. The
sponsors made themselves known to their girls and explained the system and its purpose.
They were to help them at any time and to make a real study of each inditvidual. As a
means of getting acquainted a number of the spon-sors gave little parties or hikes for their
group. This system proved a real success.
A short time later Miss Kiefer, as hostess, and some of the girls, as assisting host-
esses, gave a series of teas. Here we were able to form closer friendships and to talk
over some of the problems which trouble every schooll girl, such as the kind and quality
of clothes to wear, and the most practical and yet becoming manner to dress the hair.
During the tea hour each girl was given a question which pertained to such problems
and after she had given her opinizon of it, it was open fcfr general discussion. Some profit-
able ideas and suggestions were offered and, when tea was over, all departed full of
enthusiasm and in good spirits.
One VVednesday morning the girls had charge of chapel exercises which was a devia-
tion from the general manner of conducting iit. A very instrucitive talk on 'AI-Iow to Im-
prove our Chapel Periodsv was given by one of the girls, and Mrs. J. L. Updegraph spoke
on "How to be Rich."
' The. girls this year have learned to co-operate and they have been drawn into closer
friendships with one another. They can never forget the good moral influence which they
received during their four years of high school life.

"The Guests are met
The feast is set
Mays't hear the merry din."
Promptly at six o'clock on May second, the members and guests of the four Clubs
were ushered into' the spacious dining room of the Elks to attend the greatest banquet
ever given by Findlay High School. The huge baskets of smiling yellow jonquils, the
sparkling silver on the snowy tables, the graceful candles of blue flickering a golden light
over the merry faces-all created a happy jovial atmosphere. Then the pretty place-cards
with their yellow pansies and the dainty favors of yellow baskets made the tables more
beautiful. The delightful menu served was as follows:
Fruit Cocktail Wafers
String Beans Browned Potatoes
Head Lettuce with 'Thousand Island Dressing
Ice Cream Cake

The first number on our program will be a selection sung by the VVashington High
School Girls, Glee Club:
Come sing to Washingtong
Guard Well her honorg

Fair laurels upon her.
Come, sing, as
High now her name we raise
By noble deed and phrase

This is Radio Station NV. H. S. the Washington High School, Findlay. Ohio. The
next number on our program this evening will be a lecture on the sulbjeet "Safety First
in the Laboratory" by U. Tellum Bogart, the well known scientist:
Ladies, mantle pieces and wallflowers:
This brief -talk will interest scientists only. I represent the most powerful group of
scientists in the U. S. today, the T. N. T. club, of which I am a member. I am here to
give all "would-be" scientists a few hints on safe and sane laboratory methods.
Hint I. The easiest way to prevent poisoning is to dispose cf the poison and sub-
stitute water. Keep out of the laboratoryg in other words, eliminate entirely all drugs
Hint II. When doing dangerous work remove the source of danger to the next
county and proceed. Thtis method insures your laboratory from all injury.
Hint III. As my time is getting short and -the batteries low I will tell you a most
important fact. To keep from getting injured in the laboratory commit suicide and retire

This is W. H. S. Washintgton High School, Findlay, Ohio. The weather report for
Findlay and Vicinity:
Generally fair. Not much change in temperature.
The high pressure area that has been central over the Nolrth Side will move slowly
southward and will be felt in the region of the Central High School about the second
week in September.
There will be slight precipitation in the form of tears due to two conditions: regretful
leaving and remorseful remaining.

Another high pressure area will be moving from the south at about the same time
and when these meet there will be strange weather phenomena witnessed by residents of
The weather one year ago today was about the same. Highest temperature in the
past 10 years was in 1919 when one hundred freshmen were promoted. Lowest in 1923
when eighty-two were promoted.
"Now what is the Student Council doing?" That is what we hear on Monday morn-
ings. And why shouldn't we with Miss Crates and our officers at the helm?
The Student Council is an organization that corresponds to our legislature at Wash-
ington. D. C., as it makes the laws for our student body.
NVe have accomplished many things, amongthcm being a program every Thursday
mcrning. These are given by the student body on subjects that are very interesting.
VVe hope to accomplish many more things before we leave good, old W. H. S.
Girls' Glee Club
"Listen! what beautiful music! VVhence can it come?"
'fOh. that is only the Girls' Glee Club of the XfVashinigton School."
"They certainly sing beautifully." That and many other favorable comments are
heard wherever we sing. The Glee Club was organized at the first of the year under the
able leadership cf M-iss Dorothy Crates. Since then it has taken an important part in
school assembly programs.
We delighted the Parent-Teachers Organization by singing several numbers at one
of their meetings. And that wasn't the only good time we had. The Glee Club party
held at the home of Florence Baker proved to be one of the most enjoyable affairs of
The Glee Club has proved one of the biggest factors in the school organizations and
the members have sung themselves into the hearts of all.
Boys' Glee Club
"Music hath charms." We know it usually does, but would ours? We don't know,
but it isn't our fault. If we could have secured music, everybody else would have known
as well. Nevertheless we are the first Boys' Glee Cluib of VV. H. S., but certainly not
the last one.
Whein we start something we mean it and before this year is o'ver Findlay will be on
the map along with New York because the Boys' Glee Club of the Washington School
sang so beautifully. Although we haven't done mulch, we know that future Glee Clubs
will, and we give them our best wishes for a brilliant success.

At last the Wlashington girls had a11 opportunity of a good representation in basket-
ball. We were not handicapped by the grave detriment of want of a coach and with time
once a week for practice, we learned girls' rules, which were new to us. The following are
some of the stars:
The ball never remained in her hands very long for she always threw it to the right
place whenever she got possession of it.
Shels as short as you can get them but just as big as Kenny Tucker in spirit of play-
She's not very big nor yet very small, but, nevertheless, shc's one of our best guards.
She was undoubtedly the best running forward in the school. VVith her ample pep
she could keep any game going at a fast rate.
Marguerite was jumping center and the mainstay of our team. She was always on
the job when neededg the other side marvelled at her skill and so did we.

THE BLUE AND GOLD
As roving center she played a steady game. She always kept the otherside guessing
about what she intended to do next.
Delores was small, yet miighty, and she always did her part with the co-operation of
the other players.
Florence was standing forward and whenever the ball was thrown to her it went
through the iron loop.
The subs deserve much credit for their hearty co-operation. They could always be
The team wishes to express our gratitude to Miss Perry, our coach, for her sacrifice

Sweet Memories of the Classical Club

Oh Mary, I've been thinking of my Freshman Classical Club.
My eyes are growing blind and it's hard for me to see.
But I dor1't believe I'll ever forget our party for T. N. T.

My face is brown and wrinkled and my hair has turned quite gray.
Remember the first Chapel Exercises we held on a Wednesday.
Oh! gracious! my feet are soreg it's those awful tender corns.

The Cosewo Club was organized by fifteen Home Economics girls at the beginning
of the school term. Now i-t has dwindled down to nine members as some have had to
Cosewo stands for cook, sew and work.
The first part of the term this club cooked. In class we discussed what we had
cooked and classified it as to the use to the body, and whether or not it was the best
kind of food. h
At I-Iallowe'en we gave a party ill honor of the Lettuce-Beet Club, which is another
Home Economics organization.
Near the end of the first semester we gave a dinner for eight members of the club.
Then these eight girls gave a dinner for the other seven.
XfVe had a tea in honor of the mothers of the members. All the mothers were asked
to come and get acquainted with the mothers of the other girls and the teachers.
The second semester we-sewed. First, we made kimonas. Now we are making
middiesg and before the end of the semester we will make dresses.
The Wednesday before Christmas vacation, the Cosewo girls took charge of the
Chapel Exercises. We had Christmas songs and Bible readings.
We had three field trips, one to the Sunburst Bakery where we learned the process
of baking on a large scale. Then we went to Holliger's Candy Kitchen where we saw
them make candy. We also went to the Lincoln School and heard a talk, by Mr. Rowe,
on tireless cookers. I think the girls df the Cosewo Club certainly chose a good name for
they all like to cook, sew and work. -LUCILLE PARKER.
On September ll, fourteen boys responded to roll call in the first period Algebra
class. They quickly organized as a club with Ralph Gillespie, presidentg Warner Stewart,
SCCFCUIFYJ and Orus Grubb, Student Council representative.
Owing to the fact that only two of our memlbers remain at Washington all day, we
haven't been a very active organization. Nevertheless, when we did have a chance to
conduct Chapel we surprised the rest of the student body with our ability.
Miss Kieffer, our faculty adviser, has been with us in everyt-hing we have undertaken.

The Travel Club of the Washington Freshman Class was organized the second week
in September, for the purrpose of drawing our attention to places of interest in and around
our own beautiful state of Ohio. On the day we organized, we elected officers as follows:
President, Robert Warnerg vice--president, Thomas Wall, and secretary, Margaret Shull.
For the second semester' we chose as officers: President, Mary Etta Lamping, vice-presi-
dent, Mildred Reiimundg and secretary, Hollis Ellis.
As first planned the organization was to meet twice a month. Owing to the fact that
we needed this period for study, our meetings have been few. However many interesting
talks have been given of vacation trips, and many places of interest have been described.
A few have limited their travels to and from school, and one or two have enjoyed a trip
to the principal's office.
As spring opens, hikes have been planned, as well as motor trips to other towns far
and near, with the fixed idea to keep our eyes open to all the beauties of nature and the
architecture of man.
A trip to Carey Cave is anticipated with much pleasure. Hikes along our own beauti-
ful, winding Blanchard River are among our future travels. In our individual travels, our
aim will be to bring back to others some cf the pleasures which we have enjoyed.
T. N. T.
The T. N. T. Club is just what the name signifies. When started there is no stopping
until it is over with. From generating chlorine to sending up balloons we are all there.
Building electric motors and hydro-electric plants is "pie" for us.
The faculty adviser tried out several new ideas on us and they all sprouted. We
were taught science by the club plan, 'banfked by the club plan and did everything else
by the club plan.
At the close of the first semester we had to change presidents, but we can say for
both of them, they were as good as you can get. Bob Warner was our president.
"Champion" Max Ritter held down the secretary's job, Arthur Thompson was our vice-
president and jasper Treece represented us in the Student Council.
Miss Jacobs, faculty adviser sure made us work. She deserves honorable mention
for her efforts.
We surely have had a fine year of Science and will be able to do anything we try
An Out-standing Organization
NVhat is it? Can you guess? I'll tell you something about it, then perhaps your
guess will be more correct. It is comprised of fourteen jolly girls of the W. H. S. Miss
Kieffer is our guardian and Miss Perry acts as assistant.
Have we a name? Of course, it is Maihkawee, meaning Earth Maidens.
Have we laws We surely havel The seven laws of the Camp Fire are:
5-Hold on to Health.
Are we organized? Yes, the results of our election of officers are as follows: Presi-
dent, Thelma Schneider, vice-president, Martha Barkimerg secretary, Anna Lance, treas-
urer. Marie Moorhead.
I expect your next question to be: "Do we have any fun?" Yes! loads of it! We have
enjoyed two parties, one a Christmas party and the other a taffy pull: one hike so far
with others planned for the future. A play named, "Call of the Wo-he-lo." We have
ma-de over thirty-five dollars through candy, popcorn sales and magazine subscriptions.
Part of this money has gone for national membershtip and the rest will be used in develop-
ing future ideas.
Who arc we? No other than the VVashington Camp Fire Girls!

History Class of '27
Several score and many days ago our teachers brought forth' into this Findlay High
School a new class known to the worl-d as Freshies. The pealing of the schoiolbells
that sunny morning of September tent'h called many unwilling pupils to their long neg-
lected duty. The school building was like a hive of bees that morning and for many
mornings after as these dihtraoted Fireslimen hurried to and fro in an effort to lind their
proper classes. Miss Moore, Miss Coates, and Miss Cratty took their turns in trying to
show these pupils the value of comm-as, colons, periods and "X", the unknown quantity.
Classes soon settled down with their routine of work broken only by the twice weekly
visits of Mr. Roberts, director of music.
In a short time, however, a Girls' Glee Club was organized which met every Monday
evening. Martha Neeley was selected as president, Beatrice Mertz as secretary and Miss
Edna Leader as director. '
In October Druzilla Stewart and Victor Bonnell were chosen to lead in cheers at the
football games and elsewhere. They knew how to lead and many happy times the Fresh-
men spent "yelling', themselves hoarse, till the other occupants of the building could not
study and complained about it.
When everything wa-s running smoothly, report cards were handed out causing groans
from many and cheers from few. These brought sadness over the assembly for a while
but such a thing cannot long remain in the merry Class of '27,
At Thanksgiving a play directed by Miss Coates kept the assembly in laughter, after
which school was dismissed for four days during which fun and turkeys reigned supreme.
The feasting during this vacation did not produce ill-effects and everybody worked harder
than ever in an effort to show Santa Claus that they did not wish to be forgotten.
Before dismissing for Christmas holidays a speech concerning the spirit of Christmas
and a play pre-sented by the Juniors were witnessed and approved by these critical
The New Year was started right with perfectly goodjbut short lived resolutions.
Basketball for girls and boys now occupied much time while some industrious students
were busy taking snap-shots for their Findlay booklets and the Blue and Gold.
It came time for report cards and after one glance at them these Freshmen looked
as if they had seen a ghost for the first time. It is even rumored that some of the more
timid ones were seen to wipe tears from their eyes. For albout a week they were a re-
formed class and very seldom could -be caught unprepared. After the first scare wore
off they drifted back to their happy-go-lucky ways and acted more like themselves.
In early February ex-President Wilson died and sketches of his life were given and
school dismis-sfedi early ,tolhonor his memory.
An essay writing contest on the subject of "Lincoln the mann made many poor
Freshmen bite their pencils for days and finally give up in despair. This contest caused
much friendly rivalry and many good essays were presented. The judges decided on
Bernice Smit'h's as the best.
On February twenty-first, a patriotic program occupied much of the morning's time
and on Washington's birthday the Freshmen did not have to report at school which, of
course, troubled them greatly.
A Blue and Gold editorial staff was chosen with Ollie James as chairman and the
days which followed were filled with -the hnding of literature suitable for such a dignified
paper. Aspiring young poets went around in an apparent day dream, while those inter-
ested in the art of photography studied almanacs to find the days when the sun would
see Bt to expose hiis fade.
A class in Vocational Civics was organized and enjoyed 'by those who chose to
take it up.
Those pupils taking Latin were often seen carrying dolls dressed in the style of the
ancient Romans, A B C books and such child-ish playthings which they had made for a
display exhibited at the Central High School.
As the days fled by a hin-t of spring crept into the air and the Freshmen sinicerely
wished that the school would disappear sol that they migiht be free to ramlble around o'er
hills and in woods where wild flowers grew in abundance and many birds called allur-
ingliy. But su-ch was not the case for these are not the days of Alladin and his wonderful
wishing lamp and the school did not disappear. Lessons went on as usual and as the time
drew nearer the Freshmen looked forward with great expectancy to the time when the
report cards would finally be returned and they could tell all the world that they were
Thus a happy and busy year is past and though we Freshmen will have three more
such years with old Findlay High, do you think that they can be compared to this one?
We have had few cares and worries, few pro'blems to solve but if we had had more could
we not have faced and conquered them? We are only Freshmen once but we will always
be the merry class of '27. May our motto be 'tOne for all and all for one."

No sooner had the football season closed than the basketball fever became an
epidemic in the Freshmen class. Each girl was passed upon by inspectors, not so much
to find out if she were failing in Latin as to determine her mental ability and physical
skill, in other words, her 1. Q. in the art of basketball. Many aspired to be the sufbjects of
roaring cheers, but few learned the tricks of the trade. Some started in a breeze and
ended in a gale! Others started in a squall and ended in a calm. But the outcome of a
few weeks practice gave us confidence to tackle the Central High team. We really gave
them a very good practice, even though some of our girls were frightened so badly that
they were afraid to go on the floor. A few friendly tilts with the Washington Freshmen
team put real fighting pep into us, and developed a real class spirit between the two
schools. Lincoln was victorious in the games.
Lincoln Boys' Basketball
We, the Lincoln Freshmen, decided to have a basketball team.
We chose Gerald Ewing as our captain, but we had no coach. VVC got a late start
and have not played many games although we have many scheduled. One of these is
with our rival, Washington High. VVe have won all the games so far. Does not that
look like a good endinig? We hope so. Our next wish is to get a game with the Y. M.
C. A, Scouts, who are the champions of the other scout troops.

Lincoln Freshman Midget Basketball
It was late in the year when the boys thought of having a Freshman Midget basket-
ball team. VVe elected John Kelley captain. W'e had no coach.
'Played as good a game as any one on the team, scoring most of the points.
Played forward, and scored quite a few points for the Midgets. He was a good man
at team work.
Was a good forward and played good team work, helping to score many points for
Played guard. He was fairly good and kept the enemy to quite a low score.
Was our center and was too small to get the tip-offs but he made it up in good
Was the other guardg he played a good game and stopped the enemy before they got
to their bucket.
Was substitute guard and he always played a good game by helping to keep back
Was our substitute forward. He could not play, but had he been in the game the
score would have been higher for us.
Owing to our late start we had only a few games. We won all that we played.

Girls' Glee Club
All through the summer the air was filled with the sweet notes of the birds, but alas,
in the fall they left us to go to the sunny south,
VVe missed the music in their happy songs so in order to keep the music in the air
the girls organized a Glee Club. More than forty signed up for this work, and through-
out the year we have niet every Monday evening after school.
One of the unfortunate things of a iilee Club is to have a mis-leader, but We are very
fortunate in having a Miss Edna Leader for our instructor. Under the guidance of our
most competent director, we have progressed wonderfully, and have gained such notoriety
as a musical organization that we have sung at most of our Lincoln Parent-Teachers'
Meetings, and even have been invited to sing for those of some of our other city schools.
Such wonderful songsters did we develop that some of our nuntber were chosen to
sing in the musical comedy, "Springtime,"
The oflicers elected were Martha Neeley as president, and Beatrice Mertz as secretary.
We have certainly enjoyed our ye'ar's work, and were it no't for the Operetta as our
goal for next year, we would dread to see our Freshman year close.

A play entitled "A Thanksgiving Conspiracy" was given at the Lincoln School the
day before Thanksgiving. The following is a short sketch of the play:
Mr. Cole, rich and grouchy, refuses to give his grandchildren a good Thanksgiving
dinner, but says that baked beans and roast pork is good enough for them. Mr. Cole
agreed to Fredie's-his grandchild's--statement that if he said 'Tm thankful' live times
he CMr. Coleb would give a splendid dinner. As he could not keep from saying it, a big
dinner was the result. Farmer Dix, after many visits, induces Mr. Cole to buy a line
large turkey. Mr. Ames, a collector of money for charitable purposes, also keeps insisting
so that Mr. Cole finally gave a good sum to him for a Thanksgiving to 'be given to the
poor. Mrs. Hale, the housekeeper, had charge of cooking the wonderful meal,
In the end Mr. Cole gets very much attached to Miss Sally, an old maid who visited
them during the holidays, and Brimp, the butler, gets very intimate with Date, Miss

I wonder if any of the b.oys of the school -have
ever had any experience in grammatical
love? Never heard of it? Well, here's the way it goes.
You see a beautiful girl walking down the street. If she has silk stockings on she is
very feminine. If she is singular, you become nominative. You walk across, changing to
the ver-bal subject and then become dative. If she is not objective in this case, you be-come
plural. You walk home together. Her mother is accusativeg her father becomes impera-
tive. You go and sit down and find that her little brother is an indefinable article. You
talk of the future, she changes the sufbject to the present. You kiss her and she favors
the masculine. Her father is present and things are tense, and you are a past participle

Ye Aneiente Pryneypalle
cxviiil apologies to Coleridge-J
It is an ancient Princypalle
And he stoppeth one of three.
"By thy short grey hair and glittering eye
Now wherefore stopps't thou me?
Miss Jenkins' door is open'd wide,
And there is my next classg
Students are met, and all is set:
May'st know I wish to pass."
He holds him with his mighty hand,
"There was a note," quoth he.
'iHold off! unhand me, grey-haired sire!"
Eftsoons his hand dropt he.
He holds him with his glittering eye-
And Archibald stood still,
He listens like a three years' child:
The Princypalle hath his will.
And Archie in the office sat:
He cannot choose but haltg
And thus spake on that ancient man,
The bright-eyed Princypalle.
"The coast was clear, you had no fear,
Merrily did you write
Until Folk came, yon heard your name,
And got it ont of sight.
But Folk came marching down the aisle,
Down the aisle came he!
You did not know he watched you so
Then told the news to me.
You'll get eighth period every day,
Until you can be good"-
And Archibald here beat his breast,
He knew he never could.
Miss jenkins paced into the room,
Mad as the deucc was sheg
With shaking knees before her sat
The frightened company.
But Archibald he beat his breast,
His eyes did floor-ward fallg
For so decreed that ancient man,
The bright-eyed Princypalle.
Poor Archie was completely stunned,
And was of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser boy
He rose the morrow morn.

You choke back your feelings, and reconcile yourself for their loss
by the knowledge that, they have had the right home influences to
guide them and, a real 'home awaits their return.
VVe will welcome an opportunity to show you plans and costs of
charming homes, to which "slim or Mary" will be glad 'to return.
