If you doubt that try a little prophecying. I did and I know. I looked in a crystal and all I saw was that a hair pin was falling out. I went to a fortune teller and she told me a lot of lies. She said none of us were going to be famous. So l thought l'd get in communication with some of the spirits myself. 1 finally got in connection 'with Cassandra. Ever hear of Cassy? She was supposed to have the gift of prophecy, but the sad part of it was nobody would believe her. Evidently she tor-k pity on me, for she put me in on a telephone conversation twenty years hence between Mary Baker and Florence Timblin. Mary is the same old gossip she always wasfthought maybe Hugh could do something with her but I guess he eouldn't. Timniie is runnnig a drug store at this time-I couldn't make out whether it was Kremer's or MacC.trthy's. The first name I hear is John 1'arish's-John seems to be the President of the United States. "N'Vell, well," I thought, "to become famous you have to be able to take hard knocks and refusals. Bet John got his first practice selling tickets for the Senior banquet." Then Mary said, "Sad about Geraldine Farrar. isn't it? Why she committed suis-idx the other day in a Ht of jealousy over Katharine XVood." The conversation turns religious. They say that Ilev. XVm. Kellenbl-rg has just returned from China, where he has been doing missionary work for the past tive years. Oh yes, and Bis'hop Collins is in town-Bishop .lohn Collins. Timmie says, "I always thought he'd play Basket Ball. He did for a while, but it was too hard on the girls. Bill Mac still is though. I hear Lucille Hendricks is playing in Milwaukee this week. Pa- erewski is in Oshkosh but everybody is going to hear Lucille." Bak pipes up, "Do you ever hear from Ike Norton? Her latest book 'Sensations oi an English Teacher' is just out." By the way that shows how our ambitions change. Now this is a black and blue secret and keep it under your hat, but Ike Norton told me the other day her one ambition was to be a. chorus girl-preferably front row. But to return to the conversation with apologies to Miss Baker and Miss Timblin for interrupting them-Bak says, 'Tm SO glad Arnie lirbahns got in as principal of the High School. I know he'll make a good one." tlnterruption again. You know there are three really important positions in the world-King of England, President of the U. S. and Principal of the Fond du Lac High School. NVe seem to have two of them in our class and while we make no claim on royalty, we have Maurice Hardgrove, "Old King Cole."J Timmie-"Have you seen Fern Buehner in her latest movie? Bill and I liked it awfully well. XVhat? Oh, of course Claude is playing opposite her. Say didn't we have a good time at Lil Thrall-I mean Lil Harloridge's silver wedding last night and didn't Ike look cute?" Bak-"Yes, and I meant to ask you, are you voting for Helena Haentze for mayor? It's about time we had a woman mayor anyway." This conversation continues for an hour and I find Cece Doyle a fascinating di- vorcee, divorced and remarried six times and with rumors of another venture with Mar- shall Boudry as friend husband. Ev Brandt is now Senator Brandt, famous for his speech on the Esch-Cummins Bill. We have no less than three others on the H. S. faculty- Putt Wallicks teaching English, Dot MacCarthy Aesthetic dancing ta new subject", and XVilfred Milligan introducing the horrors of U. S. History to infantile minds. Marge Dollard, we find, is posing for advertisements for "Danderine" tfrce photo of And Her Golden Hair was Hanging Down Her Back with every purchasea The enterprise is backed by F. L. VVolff, mayor of Fond du Lac. I always did get cut off in the most interesting part of a conversation and anyway half the joy of life is looking forward to the future because we don't know what it holds for usfso I won't take away any more joy. lt's all settled we're going to be famous anyway.

Although, a comparatively small amount of social activity was undertaken, the class, nevertheless, truly displayed its loyalty in all forms of school affairs. The juniors this year proved to be especially prominent in athletics. The or- ganization was represented by nve players on the football team while one member held a position on the basketball team, a showing which is of exceptional merit to our class. Not only were the Juniors prominent in athletics but also in debating' as was indicated by the fact that one member of the class was on the school debating team. The Juniors also exhibited school spirit by patronizing the high school in a much accredited manner. And thus we find that our class was intensely interested in all high school activities: as was that same group of students when classified as sophomores and freshmen, . One social activity was undertaken by the juniors-a class banquet which proved to be a complete success from the standpoint of interest, attendance and amusement. VVe have done well as freshmen, sophomores and juniors, in athletics, debating, studies, social affairs and club activities. The question arises, 'KWl1at will we do as seniors P" judging from our past record, we are confident that a favorable answer can be predicted. Clurcizcc' S1'1'1'zfvs01'L. Crzrolinc l'iz1'50izs.

That we may be certain of impressing you. we recall to mind that the school celebrated our coming by welcoming the principal, Mr. F. S. Randle to his first year, as it has been ours. in Fondy High. Our first year was further made memorable by having Mike llamilton take his first vacation. However he could not remain away from us long and so re- turned promising to stay until he shall become caretaker of our new school on the Ingram Grove site. Then too. were we not the cause of the introduction of the shift system of classes? There were so many of us that we have proved to all that the building at the corner of Merrill Avenue and Amory Street cannot hold a real high school body. Our instructors have not been unduly impressed with our brains and energy, But we have been more than properly impressed with their learning, patience, and good will. In our instructors we have included the sophomores. juniors, near-seniors. and faculty. On account of the present style of dress it took us a long time to decide who were the women teachers and who were the older girls, and even now we are not always sure. XVC loved the grades and are beginning to love the high school cramped and crowded as it is. J. E. I'vckc. MIUST .XllOLf'll YS." Last year there came to Fondy High, A crowd of girls and boys.

W'hat tender emotions that word inspires! VVhat pleasant mem- ories it recalls! The dear old Fondy High has to the youth of our city for nearly half a century offered its services that they might gain in knowledge and be worthy actors in life's drama. But now the old High is going to be replaced by a new and modern structure,-a building that will represent the advance made in educational lines since the cornerstone of the old school was laid. Little opportunity is there for tradition or fiction to have grown up about the school, for many of her children are still living. Wlander with me thru the halls, let us presume, for the last time. XVe pass the library where many industrious hours were spent. No one will ever forget the time and toil in detention. One even feels the inspiration and spirit of past geniuses hovering in the halls. We pass the Auditorium where many hours were spent in quiet study and enthusiastic mass-meetings. Long will chemistry lab. be in our memory for the unnameable and unforgivable odors. Finally, we saunter past the principal's office, where we went sometimes by command and ofttimes of our own free will, seeking to receive judgment, counsel, or inspiration. XYere I a gifted prophet, I should fortell that in years to come when the new high school shall number her students by the thousand, and when you slip out to where the silvery moon of memory hangs, you will realize that the old lligh with all its defects still lives in a halo of splendor.

F. lfruth director of athletics in the Fond du Lac High School. Coach lfruth is numbered among the greatest athletes turned out by Ripon college. His record is perhaps one of the best ever made by an high school coach in the state of XN'isconsin. Coach liruth has had basketball teams in every kind of a tournament. There has not been a single year in which teams coached by Fruth have not won some kind of an honor. His first year at coaching in the local High school resulted in lfond du Lac winning third hon- ors at Oshkosh and second at Ripon. The next season, IQIS-lo. was one of the greatest in the career of Coach lfruth. llis team went thru the season without a defeat, took district honors, and also won state title. The next season l"ruth's boys failed to cop honors at Oshkosh, but when the Red and XYhite wearers played at Ripon, they showed up in championship form and took first honors. This year the team won third place at Oshkosh. lfruth was graduated from Ripon College in IQIZ. The Tomah high school basketball team. which he coached. went to the state tournament. He came to lfond du l-ac in IQI4 and immediately began to coach football. His grid iron teams have all been of high calibre. He coached his first basketball in lfondv during the season, 1917-18, ' Page Forty-nina THE "LIFE" NINETEEN TWENTY-ONE Football Team "Fw MEN Leonard Reinhold Maurice Hardgrove Hugh Folsom Robert Trier David Sargent Pierce Blewett Lloyd Lyneis Marshall Boudry Melvin Yenne Harold Bernhagen Clyde Dunbar Hanford johnson George Sullivan Glen llauers Harold Harbridge Paul Nehmer Lyle Bacon Harold Bostwick The 1920 Football Season Review By Harry Dfttnzar Although greatly handicapped by the lack of material, Coach Fruth de- veloped a footliall squad of which the local school may well be proud. Its record is not a string of brilliant victories, but, nevertheless, it is a record which shows hard and conscientious work. Some of the defeats which the eleven suffered Swere not as great as some of the scores indicate because the majority of teams played, were much heavier and more experienced, especially VVayland, Sheboy- gan, and VVauprn.

He is one of the best men Fruth has had for that position in years. Reinhold was the last man to tell who won the gameg but he saw it through and knew what his school and friends expected of him. He played a man's sized game and when the final whistle sounded, the ball was on the enemy five yard line ready for a touchdown. LLOYD LYNEIS '23 Captain Lyneis. That will be Lyneis' new title when he returns to school next year. 'fFat" is heavy, as his nick-name well indicates. He is also fast and his wonder- ful work on the line is one of hissingular features. With Lyneis back next year as guard and as captain, Fruth will be able to turn out a likely looking squad, PIERCE BLEWETT '22 Another of Fruth's heavyweights. f'Fat" played center and at that position was a whole bomb factory in himself. His size failed to prevent him from moving fast, ticipated and he can be relied on next year to carry the ball or back up the line. His HAROLD BosTw1eK ,23 Bostwick at times held down the half position for Fruth. His work at that position was very credible. His tackling was a feature of every game in which he par- ticipated and he can be relied on next yearto carry the ball or back up the line. His steadiness in the game is characteristic. HAROLD BERNHAGEN ,2I Bennie Bernhagen was a wonder man at the fullback position. His punting was excellent and he could be relied on to carry the ball through almost any line. He got into the game as a regular late in the season. Had he got into the VVaupun game and others, we believe that the score of these games would have been something else. GEORGE SULLIVAN 321 Sullivan played at guard throughout the entire season. Although it was his first year on the team, he filled his position like a veteran. His weight enabled him to hold his own on every occasion. The team loses a good man when Sullivan graduates this year. MAURICE HARDGROVE '21 Hardgrove is among the "F" men who graduate this year. He played a hard smashin ' ame at tackle. f'lVluzz" was a reat asset to the team because of his size 8 g . and conscientious playing. MARSHALL BOUDRY '22 Boudry has one more year in which to defend the Red and lVhite. He held the position of tackle last fall, notwithstanding the fact that it was his first attempt at football. He was fast and in the center of the game whenever possible. Page Fifty-four THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-oNE The Football "F" Men DAVID SARGENT '23 This was Sargent's first year on the team. "Fat" and his two hundred pounds were used to a very good advantage at guard. He will do his share in bringing fame to Fondy next fall. CLYDE DUN BA R '21 Dunbar played halfback last fall and was in the center of play every minute of the game. His wonderful determination and speed well fitted him for the position. The fellow who takes Dunbar's place next fall will certainly have to be a football player in every department of the game. LYLE BACON '21 Bacon proved himself of great value when he played the end position. Because of his ability he well deserved the scorn of his opponents. Bacon is among the men to graduate this year. GLEN BAUERS ,22 Bauers made himself known by his wonderful tackling. His position on the team was in the line as end. Bauers was not only a good tackler, but also a speedy man, who could be depended on for carrying the ball through enemy territory. HUGH FOLSOM ,2I Folsom played a hard aggressive game at end. His ability to break up plays made him a man to be feared by the enemy. This was Folsom's first and last year as a regular. MELVIN VENNE ,22 Venne filled the position of quarterback. Although he was quite light, he filled the position admirably. His plays were well directed against the weakest point in the enemy line. Venne will again be a regular next fall. HAROLD HARB RIDGE ,2I Harbridge shared the honor with Venne of holding the quarter position. He used good judgment in planning all of his plays, and it was he who was largely re- sponsible for the victory of the Beaver Dam game. The team will suffer a great loss when Harbridge graduates this year. ROBERT TRIER '21 Trier's speed and aggression enabled him to play at both full and half. Rob was in the game every n1inute and his absence will be keenly felt when the squad lines up in harrle array next fall. PAUL NEHMER '22 Nehmer tried for a position on the team this season and after several weeks of hard training, gained a berth on the squad. He played a hard determi11ed game at tackle, VVe will hear and see more of 'iHans' on the field 11ext fall. HANFORD JOHNSON ,2I johnson played his first year o11 the team and made an extra good showing. His position was in the line, and he very often worried his opponent. plohnson was :1 fellow who could hit the enemy hard and it wasn't very often that an opponent got through 'T0lll1S0ll'S point i11 the li11e. Johnson is one of tl1e HF" men who graduate this year.

A wealth of basketball material turned out for the early part of the season, but this material generally lessened, and by the time the last games of the season were being played ,it was necessary to take subs from the first squad. The second team played the basketball teams of various secondary High schools and also the Class B teams of the larger High schools. The second squad took second honors in the Rueping lnterscholastic basketball tournament. and as a result each member received a silver medal in the form of a miniature basketball. il X Outstanding among the members of the second team, is Don McKinley, a sub on the first squad. His wonderful playing won him a place on Gedlinskfs and Mayer's all XK'innebago district teams. Kremer, Hayer and Hrucker. are the other men besides Nlcliinley who will return next year and will be valuable material to Fruth in selecting his first squad. Bacon, llardgrove, Trier, and Sullivan, seniors and the men who com- prised the remainder of the team all played excellent ball. Pczyw Fifty--nine THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-oNE The Basketball Team WILLIAM McKINLEY ,2I The indomitable leader of the Red and White ,a veteran of three years and a mem- ber of the state championship squad of 1919. Captain Bill McKinley played in every game in which the basketball teams for the last three seasons have participated. He was picked on several all-star teams during his athletic career in Fondy High. Bill was the hardest worker on the team, being a constant worry to the visiting aggre- gation both on the defense and the offense. On account of his Hashy work in previous seasons, many of our opponents had him "spotted", but even then he proved to be too slippery for some of them. We lose Mac this year and we shall greatly feel his less, for under his leadership, almost any kind of a team could be put into a champion- ship contender. JQHN COLLINS y21 ,Tohn Collins finquiring reader: "Hold on, who was john. Please stick to modern history."-Answer: 'iAnything to oblige. Iohn was the guy or rather gentleman who deserted the ranks of St. Norbert's Academy to play with the Red and Whitefj -As we were saying, john Collins, in other words "Kraut", played his first and last year with Fond du Lac High. He was a veritable whirlwind at the forward position, and was one of the highest scoring men on the team. Collins was one of the best dribblers since the days of Eddie Karst. This year he was selected on Mayer's and Ey1er's all- district teams. VVILLLAM VVATSQN '22 The renowned Vifilliam Watson, playing his second year with Fondy, was one of the best men Fruth had for the defensive machine. Leave it to Chester, it wasn't very often that a man got away unguarded. Watson entered from North Fond du Lac two years ago. He has played a strong game at center for the past two years and having played in every game this season, has been an important cog in Fruth's basket- ball machine. LEONARD REINHOLD ,23 "Hit 'em high or hit 'em low"-That was Reinhold's motto in basketball as in football. Reinhold is among the greatest basketball heroes turned out by Fruth. After the football season, he stored away the pigskin and took to basketball. His playing for which he received much praise from officials, was that of a veteran. Chosen for Al Mayer's all-tournament team, is a fitting climax to Renihold's first year in Fond du Lac High school basketball. HAROLD BERNHAGEN 921 "The World"s Greatest Discoveriesf' Among them we number the uncovering of Rennie Bernliagen. He has been a sub for the past two years. Near the close of the past season Bernhagen was taken in as a regular, for here it was that Fruth made his great discovery. The Appleton-Fond du Lac game in this city was the first real game in which Bernhagen was to participate. His work in this game was of such high calibre that he was taken in as a regular. Beenie's favorite dish was long shots and in the last few games of the season, he held the fans spell-bound by spectacular playing, intermingled by exhibitions of artistic basket shooting. We have seen our last of the "twentieth century wonderm and we wish him good luck, wherever he may SO- e HAROLD HARBRIDGE ,2I The last of the Harbridges. Harold Harbridge, a brother of the famous "jim- myf' He played as a regular in the early part of the season, but when Fruth found Bernhagen, it was necessary to put Harbridge on the bench because of his lightness. He played a good game against the lighter teams, but when Oshkosh, Appleton, and other heavy teams were encountered, it was necessary to find a heavier man. MELVIN VENNE 322 Venne has subbed on the team for two years. Next year he will evidently be taken in as a regular. His Hashy floor work and his ability to figure out plays, all helped him to get a prominent position on the squad. He was put in whenever one of the regulars was forced out of the game. "Abe" will be a Senior next year and if he shows up then as he did in the past season he will be a valuable asset to the team.

First of all quite a few new members of promising ability were enrolled within our ranks. Besides new members all of the old members proved themselves faithful by re- turning to our standard and doing all in their power to make this year a suc- cessful one. The meetings consisted of lively debates and extemporaneous speeches, all members being allowed 'to participate. The attendance was as good as could be hoped for and everyone did his utmost to make the sessions successful. Occa-- sionally a few members were absent. but as a whole they attended regularly. In debating the club ranked as high as other years. The interclass debates were very important, but the big event of the year was the Triangular Debates between Fondy, Oshkosh, and Sheboygan. A, little more spice was added to the fray this year by each city purchasing a silver Loving Cup. Fondy's Cup stands about eighteen inches high and has Fond dn Lac. Oshkosh, and Sheboygan en- graved to form a triangle with Fondie's name at the top. . The rules governing the holding of the Cups were that each city should defend their own cup at home and go in quest of the one in the city they were to debate. To pick the debaters who were to represent lfondy. we first held a pre- liminary try-out on the Commission Form of Government. Of the thirty who entered the contest, ten were picked to participate in a second try-out on the Esch-Cummins Bill. At this debate the six final debaters and two alternatives were chosen. XYith the aid of the Dramatic Club, who very generously put on a play to raise funds for the Inner Circle, the team went to Madison, March 6, for four days to gather material for the big debate. They travelled with Nr. Spicer, the Coach. On April first the big event took place. Fondy's Negative team went to Oshkosh to meet their Affirmative team and battle for their cup while Fondyls Affirmative team contested here with Sheboygan Negative team in defense of our cup. The decisions showed that each city had won one and lost one debate. Though outwardly the results looked like an even break Sheboygan was victor over the triangle by one vote.

"The Lost Silk l-lat" was a brilliant portrayal of an absent-minded man in love. A beautiful silk hat was procured for the evening, and the players did them- selves proud. The second play, "The Feast of the Holy lnnocents,'V which was an interpretation of the eccentricities of two spinster sisters, was admirably presented. the cast rivalling that of the "Lost Silk Hat." The lnner Circle, then, in need of financial reimbursement, and desiring to bask for awhile in the light of the great D. C., asked that a benefit play be given-the benefit to be their's. Of course nothing could be nobler than to aid in fostering the intellects of our erstwhile debators, and, forthwith, a play appeared, "Candidates For XVings." The Dramatic Club surpassed itself in this, delighted the audience, and brought golden smiles to the faces of the I. C. The hluniors began to cast longing eyes at the membership list of this unequalled organization with its magnificent achievements: and a deluge of try-outs followed. f'My Lord in Livery" told a charming story of three lovely girls who dressed up as servants to thwart an audacious young nobleman. "Smith Steps Outl' and makes everybody sit up and take notice of its quaint characters and daring hold-ups. f'Hurry! Hurry!

After "The Say So" play, Senior members of the Dramatic Club paused a moment to thin out their laurels and acknowledge incoming ability. And still it came, and still the wonder grew-and so did the laurels grow-thinner. The last great prodution, the last before the junior generation should come into their own, assume the reins, supercede their predecessors, and excel because of the example the Seniors have set-was the Class Play. lt is enough to say that it was com- posed of members of '2I: it was directed by Miss Hauer and Miss Pinkerton: it was clothed through the praiseworthy efforts of Miss Litcher and the courtesy of local boostersg it was professional in its perfection. Look over the east. Proud of its program for the year, pleased with its record of the past, and hope- ful for new triumphs in the future, Dramatic Club closes for 1921, with a smile and a bow to all admiring fans.

In the past few years the Club has succeeded in at- taining an exceptionally good organization. lt has demonstrated that it can hold true- to-life elections feyen with political schemes involvedj, successfully conduct trials before the public. and provide'interesting meetings for club memlrers. The first activity was undertaken on Novemlzer the ninth, when the annual consular election was held. The result Csorry enough for the Seniorl for the second time in the club history placed one lunior. Yerna Klargrai, and one Senior Hugh lfolsoin, into consular office. The other two nominees were Eileen Norton and Clarence Simpson. However the seniors were not particularly enthusiastic about the methods used by the 'luniors in the electiong namely .that the Aluuiors concentrated their voting strength on one member. the Seniors on two. Thus it came about after the election that a trial was promptly demanded by the Seniors. or Optiinates. Their wish was granted.

Due to the importance of this case, after they had balloted a three to three tie, the counsel was called in. She reviewed the case and rendered a decision in favor of the lluniors liy declaring that Verna Klarqraf had the right to retain the ohice of consul. Bcgining with the second semester and ending' March the first, the annual taxes of the cluh were collected by the city Quaestors. As several citizens failed to pay the required taxes, a contio was summoned to permit the delinquents to explain why they should not he exiled. Excuses were presented and alihis were furnished which would make even Catiline weep, and the senate, realizing' this, fined some citi- zens as high as five cents. Those who failed to appear were prompty exiled. Regular monthly meetings of the Classical Cluh were held throughout the year. Personal anecdotes of our great Romans were given: travel and correspond- ence were taken up: and some of Cicero's letters read: Roman laws were discussed. XX'hen necessity arose, the two senates were summoned into Room Thirteen for the purpose of arhitrating important questions of the day. In view of all these activities, it is unnecessary to state that the clulw has en- joyed one Of the most successful and prosperous years of its history.

The forty members of the organization un- animously approved and accepted a constitution drawn up by a special committee ap- pointed for that purpose. The aim of the club has been to acquaint the students with French social and economic conditions including various phases of French literature and art which could not he studied in the classroom. During the course of the year some highly interesting programmes on French Daily Life, French Literature, Edn- cation in France, and French Art, were taken up. Besides being educational these reports were usually ofan amusing nature. It has lzeen felt that a more thorough knowledge of the French has been gained. The most part of the insight we have re- ceived has come from the sketches our instructor. Miss Katherine Smith. has given us. She has spent some time i11 France and therefore was able to contribute many interesting anecdotes. A part of each meeting was carried on in French, and, some- times given over to the singing of French songs, and the playing of French games. Through the kindness of Mr. Spicer, the physics instructor, the club enjo-ved one evening a stereoptican lecture on the principal places of interest in France.

Fruth e Athletic Associa- tion. The Athletic Association is the means of supporting sports in Fond du Lac High School. The membership of the association brings together every element of the student body which should have representation in the management of athletics. Any student in the Fond du Lac High School may join. The dues are twenty-tive cents per year, payable at the opening of school each fall. During the past season the Athletic Association has had but a membership of seventy-five per cent. This means that but three quarters of the pupils in the High School are interested in athletics. Fond du Lac High School has two major sports, football and basketball. Of these two basketball is the foremost. It is perhaps the most exciting of all sports That is why it is Fond du Lac High School's foremost sport. It is a sport that should make a particular appeal to grade school boys just entering High school, for not only is it the very embodiment of the spirit of fair play, but also it provides the opportunity for a wonderful mental and physical development. Every grade school boy entering High school should try out for the team. The regular team is largely composed of players who learned the game in the grade schools, and it is upon the boys now playing in those grade schools that the success of future Fond du Lac High school basketball teams in a large measure depends. The basketball season was the most successful for the Athletic Association. Perhaps more money was realized this year than in any year before. It was largely through the use of the Rueping Athletic Association gym that the High school was able to seat such large crowds at its games. No profit was made on the football sea- son. This is due to the fact that so many students are not interested in the sport and also that the expenses in football are much higher than those in basketball.

This year introduced the beginning of a new system, in which the pupils are graded in chorus according to the merit of their work. Many of the High school students have musical talent which might have remained undetected except for their work in chorus, while those less fortunate have received a useful musical education and, also oneefourth of a credit.

The students in rooms above wondered what the clear pene- trating tones were which crept up the cold-air registers. Of course it was the Glee Club practicing "tone placement."

This department is in two divisions: the pencil, pen and charcoal work class, and the color and design section. The first section is taught by Myrle H. Spicer, who is a very competent instructor. This class is the smaller of the two, but the members are learning much. Last semester they took up pencil work,perspective being inclvded under this head, and charcoal drawing. This semester they are doing pen work, which is a science in itself. The class has made many of the bills which annouce the coming events and are posted in the building. Miss Lind's class has covered a very extensive field. The fundamentals of design were studied in the first part of last semester and the foundation of color theory developed in the latter part of last semester. This semester the work has been enetered on two objects: the play, "The House That .lack Built," and the annual, "Life.' For the play, the class designed all of the ninety different cost- umes, the house itself, and prepared all the stage settings. It was a large contract for beginners to handle but was successfully carried out. For the annual, the class made all of the inserts, pannels, and headings 5 also the cover design. Altogether the year has been a successful one for the art department. though both classes have worked under the handicap of lack of equipment. Next year, it is hoped that this handicap can be partially, if not wholly, removed. Then this new department in Fondy's High school will become a real benefit. .llrzrciav H.

Page Eighty-sew n THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-ONE Page Eighty-e'ight THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-ONE Prize Story Yellow A cloud of gloomy suspense hung over the group of players who were dressing in the locker room. No feeling of overconfidence was there here. Everybody was tense and serious. Each knew that the next hour was to be the supreme test of his ability. Determination to win the game before them was on every face. Yet the en- tire team knew that the winning of the game rested upon one man. Every little while the different players would turn to look at him. They had picked the fitting man upon whom to rest their hopes one would think as he looked at him. He was tall, clean- limbed. and supple-the finest type of that most perfect piece of human meifhanisin, the trained athlete. Altho the players were all that could be imagined physically, yet he stood out from all the rest. He was a noticeable figure. with his thick close crop- per hair. the color of old Domingo mahagony, with his thin, strong face-the strength of level brows. straight nose, and square chin. He was smiling and chatting with the other players. In- his eyes there was no serious expression. To him there was no gravity in the situation. He did not take the game seriously as the other players did. Altho he did not realize it, his carefree attitude was the cause of the other player's ser- iousness. For upon the awakening of Mike Dean to the importance of the game rested all their hopes. Mike was beyond a doubt the star of the team. All of the players in their green and gold jerseys with the name Jordan on them acknowledged this. It meant so much to them to represent jordan college against Yale in the contest for the intercollegiate championship of the United States. Jordan was the undisputed cham- pion of the West, and hoped within the next hour to be the champion of the United States. Is it a wonder then that the fellows glanced so anxiously at Mike, for upon him alone rested all their hopes? Their coach, the critics, and the sporting editors said that Mike was a great basketball player, the greatest they had seen for many years. However, only the plav- ers. the coach, and Mike's brother. -Iim, realized how great he really would be if he played with all his heart bound up in the game. To Jim it meant more than to all the rest for he had been captain of the jordan basketball team two years before. He had spent the past week trying to instill in Mike the spirit that would win the game. He had not succeeded. As they gathered listening to the last words of advice and command from Coach Frazer, the feeling of defeat overwhelmed -lim. If only he could give his brother some of his own -Iordan spirit! 'fHerels the lineupfor the game: Dalton, center: Captain Russel, left forvvardg Mike Dean, right forward gWelsl1, right guard: Kipper, left guard," Frazer said. "VVhat's the matter Kennedy? You look glumf' Mike said to a sub. . A'XVell I hoped that I might get a chance to get in the game, but I eouldn't really expect it. Yet this game means so much to mef' "Oh, pshaw. What does one game more or less matter anyway ?" "I wish it meant more to you." "Oh, as far as that goes, I hope we win and all that, but someone has to lose and it's just as likely to be us as Yale." carelessly said Mike as he shrugged his shoulders. 'llfverybody ready? Mace you take the ball up on the floor. Everybody re- member this: follow our plan of the gameg play your hardest: and remember that Macc is captain. Do what he says," the coach said. As this team from the small western college ran out upon the floor the immense crowd involuntarily paid them tribute by applause. YVhen the Yale team came out. however, their welcome was deafening. Physically, man for man, Yale was the equal of the Jordon teamg yet the game alone would show which team was the superior. Both teams ran thru some snappy practice and then the refereels whistle blew, and the two captains met and shook hands. Russel won the toss and chose the upper basket. The teams lined upg the referee blew the whistlel and the big game was on. Page Eighty-nine THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-ONE Dalton got the jump, tapped the ball to Russel who had run up, and Russel pass- ed to Mike who was directly under the basket. Mike shot with deadly precision and made the basket. The crowd came up for air for all this had happened so quickly that many of the spectators did not realize that a basket had been made. Yale made a long shot and the score stood 2-2, After this the baskets were all hard earned. The Yale captain was guarding Mike, and the two men seemed so evenly matched that the Jordon players dared not pass very often to Mike for fear of Yale's getting the ball. The burden of making the points now fell upon Dalton and Mace, but altho they worked well together, still they did not work so smoothly as Mace and Mike. Both teams worked like well oiled machines, but Yale's shooting was superior to Jordon's. Jordon hal always depended upon Mike to make their baskets, but for the first time Mike had seemingly met a guard that was his equal. Yale made a basket and the score stood 4-2. Jordon worked the ball down to their basket by short passes. Mace missed the goal. Yale made the score 6-2. Jordon worked the ball down again, and Dalton changed the score to 6-4. Only three minutes were left of the first half. Yale made a spurt, and just when they made their second basket the whistle blew with Yale in the lead, IO-4. "Yale will surely win now. Don't you think so, Bob? Isn't the Yale team play- ing well?U said a young lady to her escort. "I think Yale will winf' he replied. - Down in the locker room Coach Frazer was talking to his players. "You play- ed a great game, but you can play better. They are the strongest team we've met so far, but you can beat them. Mike, if you'll get in and play with the right spirit we can win." 'iMy man had me guarded all the time. VVhat can I do?" "You can get away and play rings around him! Now I want to see you really trying this half." ' 'fCoach, I'd like to hold a talk fest with Mike," said Mike's brother jim. "Mike, I was captain of the Jordon team two years ago. YVe didn't have a team or coach as you have. All we had to play for was the school. Our team had school spirit, but no playing ability. You have playing ability, but unfortunately, 110 school spirit. Why say. I should have been willing to have a leg cut off if I could only get into this game. You are in it, and don't care if you win or lose! I should think you would at least want to win the game for your coach and team mates. Think what it means to mother and dad and me to have you win this game. I know you can do it if you tryf, Jim stopped, breathing hard because of his powerful emotions. "VVhy of course Illl try to win the gamef' Mike responded. f'Oh. it makes me sick to think that a Dean would ever show a yellow streak. Don't talk to 1ne again because you're yellow clean thru," and with this lim walked away. "Yellow? Yellow, am I? Wfell I"ll show him that a Dean hasn't a yellow streak !" XVhen he had said this a steely glint flashed into Mike's eyes. If .lim or thc coach had seen this determination in Mike's eyes, it would have brought joy to their hearts. Mike looked upward as if asking aid in carrying out his resolution and then joined the group of players. 'lVVelsh, watch that forward youlre guarding. Kipper, don't let them get down past you: they got past two times before. Time to go up," the coach said when Mike rejoined the other players. The referee's whistle blew, and the second half was on. Jordon worked the same play that they did at the beginning of the game. Mike got away from his man. and Mace passed the ball to him. VVith deadly precision Mike shot and made the basket. ' "Come on, fellows. Let's make some more just like thatf' Mace called to his men, Page Ninety THE LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-oNE Unfortunately, they did not make any more so easily as that one. Time after time Yale broke up jordon's plays. The whole jordon team was playing together, but they could not overcome that lead. That four point lead of Yale's began to loom bigger and bigger to the jordon players as the game wore along. To Mike it seemed as if the figures Io-6 rose up to mock him. He played like a demon, but try as he could, he couldn't change the score. The Yale men began to appear as devils come to work against him. Savagely, in his heart, there rose the determination to beat them. "Come on, fellows. VVe have to play harder. Let's get a basket,Mike," Mace called out. .lordon secured possession of the ball. and worked it down to their basket. Mace was under the basket, but instead of shooting he passed the ball to Mike who was com- ing in. Needless to say, Mike made the basket. One more and the score would be tied. "Five minutes more to play," a spectator called. Five minutes more, only five minutes began to run thru Mike's brain. He be- gan to work like a Trojan. Mace was standing by the basket. Mike got the ball, and passed to him. The score was tied. A minute flew past. Then a foul was called on Kipper for blocking. The Yale captain made the free throw. Consternation rose in the hearts of the jordon players. VVere they to lose by one point? All of them called up their last reserve of energy. "Hold them, Yale. Hold them," the rooters began to chant. Truly it looked as if Yale were going to hold them. "One minute more,'l one of the subs called to the jordon players. However, much can happen in one minute. Mike, and the other players determined to demon- strate this to Yale. VVelsh got the ball on the jump, and passed it to Dalton. Like a flash the ball went to Mike. Mike made a beautiful long pass to Mace who was standing unguard- ed under the basket. It was at this point that Mace showed his unselfishness and school spirit. Insteal of shooting and perhaps winning the game for jordon, he passed the ball. Mike had beenn playing in the center of the floor. Now with his lightning speed he covered the distance to the basket in a flash, leaving his guard trailing along behind. Unhesitatingly Mace made a perfect pass to Mike just before he reached the basket. Mike shot. The ball seemed to run up the bounding board, then it rolled over the rim and , with a Swish, fellthru the basket. just as the ball fell thru the rawhide netting, the time-keeper blew his whistle and the game was lost and won. Both teams cheered for one another, and then ran down into the locker room. VVith amazement written on their faces the crowd sat still hardly comprehend- ing that Yale had lost by the score of I2-II. Then a few rose and began to seek the exits. The charming young lady looked at her escort and said, N This is only a dream isn't it, Bob? Yale didn't really lose did they ?,' "Yale lost, Mabel. lfVeren't those two forwards of their's suberb ?" Down in the locker room a curious scene was taking place. The players were hugging one another in pure joy. Several of them slapped Mace and Mike on the back. i'Both of you will be on the All-American five. Mike will most likely be cap- tainf, the coach said to both of them. Supreme happiness showed in his face for his team had won. ......... . 'lim walked up to Mike. 'fMike,l' he said, "I want to-."

SPIRIT By John Parish, Prize Essay School spirit is that intangible something which every student should have in feeling toward his school. It is a spirit kindred to patriotism to one's country. -lust as we would uphold our country in war or peace, right or wrong, so should we stand by our school. It is our school equally as much as the United States is our country, and inasmuch as the school is an institution of our government, one who does not stand by and uphold his school is a slacker in the fullest sense of the word. A school where the proper spirit is not felt nor displayed can at best be only taken as a place which holds more drugery than happiness to both faculty and students. The everpressing and ever-present question is how to arouse school-spirit. and how to retain it after it has been aroused. Only too often a school is in- spired with a fiery outburst of enthusiasm. The spirit is as shortlived as it is peppy. It serves only as a poignant reminder that something is lacking. and that something is the one that is most vital to the life of anv school. As some very wise man said: 'flt's the truth that hurts." 'Even though it does hurt, the truth when known ought to be faced fairly and squarely. Thus. if school spirit be lacking, the immediate source of the evil should be located and killed in its infancy, or old age, whichever it may be. The school as an institution, is not composed of students and faculty alone, but of the rest of the community as well. Thus the blame cannot all be laid at the door of the pupil alone. Much less can it be laid at the door of the faculty or community at large. Rather, each assume its share of the burden and cooperate in a whole-hearted campaign against evil.

'21 Page Ninety-three THE LIFE NINETEEN TW1-:NTY-ONE Second Prize Story For forty years Aunt Hebsebina had reigned in peace in her little one-story cottage, which had come to be a very good reflection of her. The thatched roof was the only homelike thing about the place, except Aunt Hebsebina's heart when it was touched. In other respects the cottage was just a plain stiff looking place surrounded by a prim little garden in which sunflowers, dahlias, marigolds, and azaleas were planted in straight, almost severe looking lines. No such spineless things as morning glories and cosmos ever found their way into her garden. No siree, not at all. Ou the whole Aunt Hebsebina's place was the neatest of any in the whole county of Rurdstone. As for Aunt Hebsebina her- self-she wore her hair pulled tightly back from her face in a tall little pug, some- what resembling a miniature barrel. T have been told that not even one hair ever got out of place. She wore a gingham dress, tight at the waist and full in the skirt, but it was scarcely ever seen for there were two aprons over it-one to keep the dress clean, and the other to keep the apron clean. On one of the very hottest days in July while Aunt Hebsebina was trying to believe that she was cool, she heard a knock at the door. She sat for a moment wondering if it was one of those troublesome tramps who had been bothering so much lately. Then, putting on her most fridgid air, she went to the door deter- mined to send him flying, whoever he might be. lt was not a beggar, but Simms, the village carpenter who had gained a great reputation because of his hearty good nature and his love for good food. "How d'y' do, mam lv he exclaimed when the door was opened. "I though mebby yould have some water you could lend-no, l mean give me. These days is bad enough in the shade, but when it comes to walkin' in the sun-" Here he looked up to find that he was talking only to empty air and stopped .vith 'tWell, I'll be-l" He had always heard that Aunt Hebsebina was not very hospitable, but now he was quite convinced. Aunt Hebsebina came silently from somewhere with a dipper of water, then without waiting for thanks, as quickly glided back. To Simms who was used to having a friendly little chat with everyone, these auctions were so surprising that all he could say was "Well, I'll be-l" While he was slowly drinking the water, the smell of a boiled dinner came out to him. Now if there was one weakness that was overpowering to Simms, it was the weakness for good food: and, above all , for boiled dinners. As he sat pondering, watching the heat waves which rose over the hill, a bright idea occured to him. Perhaps in spite of Aunt Hebsebina's coldness, he could get some of that boiled dinner. Suddenly, with as much noise as possible, he toppled over on the cobble- stone walk and lay still. He was not quite sure that he had done it right, but time would tell. Lying still required all his efforts for a sharp stone was trying to make its way thru the middle of his back 3 thesun was shining so brightly that even though his eyes were shut, they were uncomfortableg and worst of all, a mosquito was having a peaceful meal on the end of his nose. just as he thought he could stand it no longer, he heard the quick step of Aunt Hebsebina. She carefully brushed away the mosquito, then without the slightest warning threw a whole pail- ful of cold water directly into Simm's face. That was more than any mortal could stand peacable, so he arose slowly, coughing, sputtring, and ready to give a somewhat forceful opinion of such an action-only the thought of the boiled din- ner stopped him from doing so. "I am glad to see that you revived so easily. I hope you feel better." "Yes mam," said Simms forcing as cheerful as grin as possible, "mebby I do feel a little better, but I'm still kind ol shaky. Itls already past noon,' he thought, "Surely she won't send me away before dinner." This thought had apparently occured to Aunt Hebsebina also for she said with the look of a martyr and the hope that he would know enough to go home, Page Ninety-four THE LIFE NINET1-:EN TWENTY-oNE "Perhaps, in your weak condition, you ought to come in to rest before you go home in the sun." K'W'ell just as you say mam, though it's sorry I am to be bothering you," but to tell the truth Simms was highly delighted for there was his chance at the boiled dinner. "No bother at all," said Aunt Hebsebina while she thought, 'WVell of all the nuisances." As Simms lay in the little sitting room on the couch that looked hard and stiff but felt like a soft bed, his thoughts began to wander. "How very pleasantly different this room looked from his own disorderly homefi The steady buzzing of the bees about the marigolds and azaleas lulled hi1n into a delicious sense of sleepiness, but he did not yield to the temptation for still that tantalizing odor was in the air-only now it was mixed with others equally tantalizing. During that dinner Simms fairly outdid himself. He talked of the war that was threatening the United States, of all the interesting bits of town gossip, and of many other things flavoring them all with his hearty good humor. I-Ie did not occupy all his time talking for as he said later, "I made way with the best din- ner in twelve counties." . By the time he had finished the dinner and complimented Aunt Hebsebina on her good cooking, they were on quite friendly terms, and Simms went thought- fully homeward. Still meditating. he reached the house and after a few minutes became conscious that it was not as clean or comfortable as it had seemed before. The dirty floor, the flys swarming over the remains of his unpalatable breakfast, and the unmade bed half buried under a heap of dirty clothes all gave him a vague feeling of discomfort that he did not really enjoy living alone. "If he could but-,U but he put this thought out of his head before he could finish it. Aunt Hebsebina, too, had been thinking. As she meditatively cleared up the dishes, she said, 'AI believe I could almost like that man if he had enough sense to let a person get a word in edgewise. VVell, if there doesn't come that meddlesome Mrs. Fitzpatrick. She is never happy unless she has her nose in someone else's business. Looks as if my turn has come now. just for once she thought acting on some strange impulse which had hitherto been unknown to her. "just for once I'll teach her a few things." The next moment Mrs. Fitzpatrick appeared in the doorway, puffing from the exertion of walking in the sun. "VVell, well," she exclaimed breathlessly drop- ping into the nearest chair, "this is some weather I jest dropped in to bring you a fresh pat of butter. 'You know it spoils so quick in this kind o' weather." "'VVhy that is good of you," said Aunt Hebsebina as she put it in the cellar'- way. She could feel the curious eyes of Mrs. Fitzpatrick on her, but she was de- termined not to offer any explanations, so she calmly went on doing her dishes. Mrs. Fitzpatrick looked at them narrowly and said in seeming surprise. :'Wl1at a mess of dishes you've got-and your best china ones at that." 'fOh well, I always get out my best china for special occasions like this. You know it is my birthdayf' "I suppose you had that Simms up to help celebratef' exclaimed Mrs. Fitz- patrick sarcastically. Aunt Hebsebina flushed faintly at this but said calmly, "That was just the village carpenter, and you know that even my house sometimes needs mending." This was too much for Mrs. Fitzpatrick, and she suddenly lost control of herself. 'fYou know very well that that man was here for two hours straight, and I can't see any repairnig in here that is very noticeable. Some people will go to the bad no matter what's done fo rthem!" and Aunt Hebsebina turned only in time to see Mrs. Fitzpatrick marching swiftly around the corner. In spite of herself, she broke out into hearty laughter. NVhat had come Page Ninety-Jire T1-In LIFE NINE1-EEN TWEN1-Y-ONE over her? There had been nothing at all scandalous or incorrect about her helping the poor man. yet here she was almost glad that she had given Hrs. Fitzpatrick that impression. "Anyhow.', she thought, 'fthat is probably the last I'll hear from her for some time." A Miss Hebsebina was mistaken though for by the next morning the whole village was well informed that Aunt Hebsebina had lowered herself to flirt with every man that passed the place. The first time that Aunt Hebsebina herself heard about this gossip was thru Simms who happened to be passing. and who stopped when he saw her in the garden. After a few words of explanation he added with a hearty laugh, "I though that was the best one yet." Then seeing Aunt Hebsebinals unsmiling face and thinking that he had offended her, he became thoughtful. "It is that hateful Mrs. Fitzpatrick who came snooping down here to find out what the matter the moment you were out of the house. I should have known better than to give her any chance at all for gossip." Even now Aunt Hebsebina wes surprised at herself. "XfVliy am I telling this Simms my troubles? IVhere is my old, dignified self: and above all what has happened to make me feel like this ?" were troubled questions which kept recuring to her. Getting Aunt Hebsebina out of her difficulty brought on by the gossip interested Simms very much for it might mean another invitation to dinner. to say nothing of being with Aunt I-Iebsebina-for he really began to like her in spite of her occasional queer actions. "IVliy I can fix that up for you, he exclaimed. Don't worry a bit. Ry to-morrow mornin' everyone will know the truth- of your charitable act of kindness toward a poor sick man." "lint---------" "We won't need any "buts," you know, because I can fix it just as easy as uothin'," "lint how?" Queried Aunt Irlebsebiua. for she was curious as to how he would manage it. "VVell since you insist I'll tell you. You know what an old tattler Jake Ham is? Vlfell I'll just happen to mention how it is to him and every person what comes into his store will be told the fullest details. XVhat works one way works the other, you know." "I hardly like the idea. but there doesnt seem to be any other way around it. Thanks for your troublef' "No trouble at all,', said Simms unconciously using Aunt Hebsebina's identical expression. f'VVell I must be gettin' on, or I won't get the house of Cabel's shingled this afternoon." Wlieii it came to be known that only Mrs. Fitzpatrick's love for gossip was. the foundation of the story about Miss Hebsebina, it was soon forgotten. That fall and winter the inhabitants of the village became so accustomed to seeing Aunt Hebsebina and Uncle Cas they now called himj Simms together. that none was surprised to receive the wedding announcement in the spring. Some of the wiser ones had mysteriously shaken their heads and said they knew what was coming from the beginning. "Ain't it strange the way some people do change," exclaimed .Xlrs.

It has greatly improved during the year IQZO-1921, both in literature and furnishings.A new Encyclopedia, the Americana, consisting of 30 volumes, has been placed upon the shelves: and many new magazines have been added, including a set of four Scientific Magazines intended for the use of the Science Department. A new lighting system has been installed in the Library and new shades placed in the windows. .X book stack for French and German books and a spacious magazine rack have also been added. Another addition which has been greatly appreciated is a book truck, which was made by the janitor of the Public Library. As the Librarian has been devoting much of her time this year to the reaching of Library methods in the Freshman English classes, it was found ne- cessary to engage a student assistant. The assistant attends to such things as overdues. shefving, pasting, and stamping of books and also devotes much of her time to the picture coddection. ,Xs a result. we now have a collection con- sisting of 30751 pictures. The total number of books in the Library up to .Xpril 1, IQZI was 2566. an increase of 137 books over last year. The use of these books for reference work is greatly appreciated by the students.

A mixer, as you know, is one with charm or initiative with which to make one's-self popular. Efhe had charm-lots of it-and some initiative. but somehow she was always left ont. It seemed as if the various cliques in the High School were drawn so tightly together that they couldn't separate a tiny hit to let in a lonesome, extra, little girl. And she was lonesome. Many had been the nights that she had gone up to her room. locked the door, thrown herself upon the bed, and sobbed the whole night through. Today, as she was weeding the nasturtium bed, she was thinking of her plight. l-lere she was a junior in the High School, and she hadn't learned the art of mixing yet. A little tear trickled down the side of her nose. She took a long sweep with her earth covered hands-and left a beautifully blackened nose. .Iust at this moment a young man was at the side door talking to Mrs. Linden.

Cwe shall call it Rebellionj whispered, "Say yes." So Effie said yes. HAH right, I'll call for you on Friday night in my car." "I'll meet you on the next block," Effie hurriedly put in. CYou see she was still thinking of Mamma and the familyj HAH right," said Bob, and he hurried down the path, "And I looked fine, didn't IV, Effie scolded herself. "Shouldn't wonder but what my face is all mud." Bob jumped into his car and as he drove off, he remarked to Chandler Barnes. the other occupant of the car, "XVcll, now, I hope you're satisfied. You dared me: I took you up on it. It wasnlt as bad as I thought it would be though." "Yeh, I'll bet vou'll have a good time at the dance.

I'd rather have her for a girl than Helen Steeves, your painted, frizzled beauty," said Bob with much spirit and a red face. VVith all eyes upon her, Ethe stood in the door. VVith one hand she brushed the domino from her eyes. Everyone gasped. Then Effie uutied the ribbon from her bouquet and threw the huge bunch of flowers into the air. The air fairly rained yellow and red nasturtiums. When the crowd looked again, she was gone. Somewhere, back in the hall, ,Iulius Caesar rnopped his brow. 'fVVell, she's a mighty fine kid." he admitted. All the way home Bob was silent. but 'Effie chatted amiably. As they neared Efliels home. Bod said disconsolately, "I guess you don't like me."

Picge One Hundred Five THE LIFE NINETICIGN TWEN'l'Y-0NI'1 RIfYEI,ATlC TNS .XT A CRYS'I'.'Xl, GAZERS' It was a blue Sunday, bluer in fact then any other Sunday l have ever experienced. Glancing idly through the paper I read this advertisement: "Fu- ture life shown at a gdance. Charge. one dollar.-lXladame Zimbrosl-:i." I pulled out of my pocket the dollar I had been saving for a fountain-pen, and convinced myself that a fountain-pen was a very poor investment. I look the interesting advertisement and went to locate Madame Zimbroski. I was ushered into a room. Imagine my surprise when I saw about twenty of my high-school classmates seated in the waiting room. Really l thought, here's a better attendance than at the Senior banquet. ln awed tones and faint whispers each told what he expected to see Madame Zimbroski di- vulge about his future. As each was curious as the next, we decided to go into the mystic chamber together and enjoy our sensations. Dil Kremer, expectant. was the first victim. Gazing through the crystal Hill saw himself as a happy married man. Next came Edna Annis, and . looking into the ball she beheld herself with hair drawn tightly back from her ears and wearing tortoise shelled glasses through which she squinted suspiciously at the poor school-children in front of her. Then, came Bernie Dyckhoff, looking incredulous and smiling. He lost his incredulity when he saw himself a future jack Dempsey. After him came Marion Little. She looked boldly into the glass, but when she saw herself over a washboard she said she'd get her dollar hack if it killed her. Inipatient to know his future, George Sullivan tripped lightly to the front and beheld himself an instructor of fancy dancing. I-Ie made an airy how and left the room. Madame Zimbroski then instructed the girl in the corner to step forward It was Marion Mineau. She looked innocently into the glass and stepped back horrified. She beheld a stenographer a la gum. Bill McKinley now became the center of attraction. Did he blush red- der than ever when he beheld hemself a future he-vamp? I-Ie did. Williaiii Kellenberg now gathered courage Q?j to see his lot which the spirits doled out to him. Vtfell satisfied he was when he saw himself in a rector's garments. 'fSpring" Hallows' popular among the women was quite disgusted to find himself doing a cheap vaudeville act. Marshall Boudry attracted Madame Zimbroskils attention next. The future will see him flirting with the clerk in the perfume department of a large department store. Really he looked great in the rode of floor-walker. Filled with hope Eshter Hess now peered into the glass. She saw her- self doing penance for her wicked classmates. After sitting timidly in the corner all this time, Cecelia Doyle, in a very dignified manner followed Maname Zimbroski to the globe. She saw herself in a nurse's costume holding VVilnier Schuessler's hand and wondering whether or not his red cheeks were caused by a fever. The last tone had gone and Madame Zimbroski turned and looked at me. I beat the thing called a hurried retreat. Alas I feared to look at what the fu- ture might hold for me. .. XI. D.

The lloston, waltz, and two step then XYere all pronounced passe, And the people started dancing in A new outlandish way. Men who had never danced before Now broke into the game. The upstart class included me- T say it to my shame. I horned in with the rest of those VVho never danced a bit, Till dancing grew so popldar VVe HAD to fall for it. Wlhere one or two of every ten Had waltzed in days ol old. Twelve out of every dozen men XVere now within the fold. And now musicians starved to death In them two-stepping days, The army of the unemployed Now signed with orchestras. The large demand for musicers lnspired ambitious boys To borrow various instruments And learn to make a noise. Teamsters. jailors, coppers, clerks, Got drums and saxophones. And drew, instead of three per day. just plain one hundred bones. These mush-a-room musicians Knew even less than we About the art of dancing As dancing used to be. The cat-step. shimmy and camel tunes Vtlere all they had to play To fill up with engagements at Une hundred bucks per day. Presto! The waltz was back in style. The "simple" waltz of yore: A pipe for those who danced it XYhen it was here before- llnt not a pipe for us poor trash VVho broke into the game VVhen shimmy walks and one-steps Originally came. Page One Hund1'cri'Senen THE HLIFEH NINETEEN TWENTY-ONE But with true zeal I went and learned That old time waltz one day: I learned it from a lady Vv'ho rhymes with Friendship Gay. Accompanied by a piano Played at the proper gait, And not as if the music were Afraid of being late. And then I went and tried it out. XVhere piano men and drummer And Yodler of the saxaphone And raggy banjo strummer Played what they thought was waltz time, Three wallops to the bar , But fast as John had ever dared To drive that Hudson car. I am not paid for dancing No, not a measly dime, And yet I went and learned to waltz In proper waltzing time. And orchestra is paid to play- It's paid for knowing how- I think itis up to the orchestras To take some lessons now. The limit is eight miles an hour, VVhere trafhc's always thick- Slow down or I'll report you, To Motorcycle Mick.
