Between us and the Future there is a veil. It is a transparent veil but only the
eyes of God can pierce its silken film.
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. So here's to us-it's so seldom you find a perfect class.

Here's your Hat senior. XVhat's your hurry? Yes, indeed you've been in a
hurry. Some of you havenit even been here the regulation of four years, and you're
the ambitious kind we hate most to lose.
VVe're going to miss you, seniors. Most of you were good playmates and hard
workers. You who always laughed the loudest when the jokes were on yourselves.
fand that the clearest laughter in the worldj, were pals whom we'll miss the most.
You who are ever willing to sacrifice yourselves and your concerns for pleasure are
going to make good in college and in the business world. A
We mean the students who never tied themselves down to a few friends, but
who worked for and with everyone to make the school a better place beeause they had
been in it. VVe know that when you get into the world youlll work for something
higher than money-any dunce can make money,-and seek something higher than
fame, for those who have found fame have found it empty,-we know that you are
going to make life better for those who live around you, and thus make F'ondy,High
rejoice that she had harbored you.
Well, well, we had started out to make you laugh, but now we're feeling blue
Leeause we know we're going to miss you so,-Class of '21-but listen to that
trampling of small feet, and that clamor of shrill voices. 'Tis the incoming freshmen!

Kind thots are in each breast,
And now that it's vacation,
All claim he's earned a rest.
Now a word for dear Miss XVaters,
Shesets for us a pace,
Kind to all and full of feeling,
No one could fill her place.
And then there's Mrs. Ryder,
Our love for her will last
Because years fasten friendship,
And we know her from the past.
Vile then have Mrs. Decker,
XVe like her, you and I,
Xvith her eye for business,
And she can measure to the sky.
1 'Miss Fox, who likes our High School,
Because she went here once herself,
Has a lot of knowledge,
Of most every book on the shelf.

He puts out the fastest teams,
And we know that they are successful
XVhen the And. rings with our screams.
'l'here's the dearest, nicest teacher
That belongs to Fondy High,
It's Miss T. O'Brien, you know
She makes you want to try.
And there's a little sister,
Who'se full of pep and vim
She's Miss K. OlBrien
And she sure keeps the pupils trim.
XVe also have dear Miss Hauer.
The pupils friend in need,
She has the biggest understanding.
Yes, she's a friend indeed.
And Mrs. Roberts is another,

And they make one look so sweet.
Miss H. Hanen makes the goodies,

Miss Korrer tells us
That we all can learn to sing.

She will teach us real Art.
Mr. O'Connor, from chemistry lab,
Likes to keep his pupils guessing,

Oh! Friendship, how little is known of thee,
In this realm of vice and glee.
Thy truth and thy virtues are secrets to man.
Oh! Would he use thee, a powerful span,
In the checkered bridge of life.
No longer would this .be a world of heartrendsg
No longer a place where each person contends
Over the bountiful things that God sends.
Oh! That this world be a world of friends
Instead of a world of strife.

VVC, the junior Class of 1922, organized this year for the first time since the bc-
ginning of our high school career. 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
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
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.

The elass of '23 is following' the lead given it by the class of '22, in that it
hasnt organized and evidently doesnt intend to do so. The main reason seems
to be that the sophomores are comparatively small in stature. XYhy that should

mentally is one that cannot be believed when one refers to the class of '23. Still

not have the best of the preceding sophomore elasses, but we think we have.
XYe have been loyal supporters of, and contributors to all activities. XYe

team. of whom we are very proud.
To a question that one of our number put to Kliss Finger, she replied that
our elass is the largest sophomore class lfondy has ever had. Ui eourse that's
not to be wondered at as we were the largest freshman class, also.

IQ24! Vtfhat thoughts surge through the mind as one hears that date! Our
class, the class of 1924, was introduced to the high school this year. 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
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.
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.

Last year there came to Fondy High,
A crowd of girls and boys.
VVho were noted for their 1'1zdt'11c.vs?
And also for their noise.
These awful kids 'tis sad to say.
XN'ere green as Springtime grass.
And they were known throughout the school
,Xs "that awful freshman class."
Farewell! 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.

To Coach E. Fruth
Xlinning seven paces in basketball meets in as
many years, is some record for a lligh School basketball
coach. That is the record made by Coach E. 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
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, '
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. The scores against the more balanced teams show that
Fruth's team could play real ball. Both the students and the Fond du Lac Rotary
club supported the team most admirably.

The Football "F" Men
LEONARD REINHOLD ,22
As captain of the football team, Reinhold played the half-back position. 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.

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
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

The High School Second Basketball Team
For the first time in several years, the Fond du Lac High school has been repre-
sented by a second team. 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.
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

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

The progress of Dramatic Club this year has been unusual indeed. and its re-
markable strides, we know, are proportional to its remarkable coaches and its remark-
able officers. To Miss Hauer and Miss Pinkerton, the club is grateful. The Presi-
dent, VVesley Foshay, starred last year, in "Phe Mouse Trap," and received seven en-
ticing offers from the Metropolitan Opera Company. XYes probobly had a hunch of
the Dramatic Club's designs, however: so he remained with us. As Vice-President

alone. "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-

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.

servants to thwart an audacious young nobleman.

characters and daring hold-ups.

And they did. . . . .
"Then lack Came Along" minus Jill, and his proverbial stumble, but with a
rush of pep that took away the breath of the spectators.
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.

The Classical Club this year proved to be one of the most active organizations
of Fond du Lac High School. 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. On December twenty-first the trial was held before a large

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.

' 'Le Cercle Francaise"
Le Cercle Francaise was organized in the first part of the school year for the
students of the various French classes. 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.
One of the last meetings of the year was helcl on Saturday, the twenty-first of

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.

Our High School Chorus is one of the best of our many activities. .Xny one
entering our dear building between three 'J.Cl0Cli and three forty-five on Tuesdays or
Tlnirsdays would readily grade Fondy lligh as one of the first in musical active-
ties, NYe have for our leader Miss Korrer. who has spent much of her time with our
chorus to make it one of the best in the state. Miss Korrer has been. also. the ac-
eonipaniest most of the year with llliss Catherine Ylvood as assistant. The history
of music has bee11 studied, and community songs, selections from operas, and present-
tlay ballads sung. The club, which is open to all classes. has a membership of
about eightyffive boys and girls. 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. That the chorus has
been one of the most important factors in our school life this year is the sentiment of
all Fondy High School students

The Girls Glee Club
Through the untiring efforts of Miss Korrer, the Girl's Glee Club has
had a successful year. The class of i2O took the most of the membersg but as
always, the Freshmen came to our rescue, and now we can boast of a member-
ship of twenty-five. 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." Our studies have consisted of, during
the first semester, voice culture, including breathing, tone qualities, diction, shad-
ing, and related subjects. The other half of the year has been spent in ensemble
work and singing.

THE ART DEPARTMENT
Besides its many other useful departments, the Fond du Lac High school
boasts an art department. 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.

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
'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
'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.
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
'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
"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
"Come on, fellows. Let's make some more just like thatf' Mace called to his
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
.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
"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

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
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. One hozu' of c01zstr'1zrf1't'r fliougliz' will arronzplzldz a rust flml more flzrm

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,
"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
"No bother at all," said Aunt Hebsebina while she thought, 'WVell of all the
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
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
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-
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
'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
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."
"We won't need any "buts," you know, because I can fix it just as easy as
"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.

MOTHER MIXES IN
By ffl'Ollt'f.S' Roberts
Miss Effie Linden was not a mixer. That was her trouble. 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
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.
"Could I please talk to Miss Linden F" he wanted to know.
"She is busy just at present, young iiia-nel-QEJV-ide-irt-ly-IVI-is Iqillf-IGH-flifl11it like
strange menj "I-"
However the visitor spied Effie under the apple tree and left Mrs. Linden.
"I see her now," he said.
':Er--Miss Linden, I believe? I am Rob Inglehornf' he said as he came up to her.
EfHe's face turned a beautiful crimson, and she had a strange whirling sensation
in her brain. VVhat in the world could Bob Inglehorn, the basketfball hero, the girl's
idol, want with her, Effie Linden?
"P--please to m--meet you," she gulped. She was so dazed that she heard about
half of what he was saying, but she got the main thought.
'fHeard of--School Masked Ball? Honor--escorting you--"
Escorting her to the masked ball! XVhy, only the elite of the school went to that'
'fVVill you go ?" she heard.
"I don't think--" As she thought of her mother and the rest of the family, she.
from force of habit, was about to refuse the offer, but something down near her heart.
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. Shels such a quiet mouse.
you'll probably sit in the corner with her all the evening. Some time you'll have, I'll
HShe may be a mouse, but she's a darn good looking one . 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."
"Don't like you! VVhy, I like you best of them allf' ,
"VVell. you didn't pay much attention to me."
'fOh. I was just mixing in then," she said as the car stopped. "I had my chance

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
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
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
'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. ..

TH li STUDENTS LAMENT
Three years ago-or was it six?
The shimmy and the camel
Revived the waning' interest
ln dancing' everywhere.
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
Page One Hund1'cri'Senen
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.
But listen-lay all jokes aside-
I'll give you one more chance 1
Play waltzes. boys, in waltz-time.
Or I will CEASE TO DANCE!

MR. RANDLITS PHILOSC IPHY
Christians and heathens we may be,
But nnited we strive toward eternity.
The piper leads ns on with his lnst
And we follow blindly to death and to dust.
It's ever a game and lost,-
This life,-and we give the dice a toss.
Sometimes we gain and more often we lose
Bnt who can tell the road we should choose?
lt's not the saintly who always win
lint the one who comes back with strength and a grin
And when we get our judgement call
It won't bc they who enter the hall.
That have never seen Satan's tempting smile
And stood on the swaying brink awhile,
No, not the kind that perfect be
lint just plain humans like you and me.

YQUR SENIOR YEAR
lVhen you come to the end of your Senior year
And you long for the days gone. past,
W'hile others are giving you a lasting cheer
For the pleasures your heart have cast,
Do you know what the end of the High School days
Can mean to a Seniors heart,
lVhen each starts out on his different way
And the dear ones have to part?
Well, this is the end of our High School career
And the start of our life-long tour, '
But it leaves a thought that is true and dear
VVith a desire for a future secure.
For our High School days have been so gay
VVith countless friends we have made,
That we come to the end of our High Schaal days
With hearts under memories laid.
Apologies to The End of a Perfect Day.

Yllhen it with force unseeming lusty
Tore people's hats from their heads,
And. as they grahhed these hats with a shout,

Some clothes from off the lines were torn.
