V O, hott' 50011 it will lmw faded! Joy draojvs, with forclzcad slLadvd,' And nzcnzory starts. - -Rcyfwlais. LTHOUGH the golde11 time of our hearts is not yet dying, nor the joy yet drooping, slight memories have begun. Slight memories they may be called, for the thoughts are so fresh in our minds that they have not yet condensed to mem- ories. But still when we,-the transplanted--look upon the new Roosevelt High School, we C3l111OlI smother the delicate flame of lonesomeness that scorches the sur- face of our hearts. Time, in its floating course, carries with it the hope and ambition of the individual and the progress of the country. Time has brought about the marvelous development of the Fond du Lac High School. The first High school, opened in 1858, was located on the corner of johnson and Main streets, and consisted of a few rooms rented in a store. How strange. but yet so true, that sixty-four years can afford such a change! Sixty-four years ago, such were the conditions. And now, look at what we have! Sixt -four vears hence -what then? J' , 5 We, the citizens of today are being taught to promote progress. Three score and four years ago, progress then, as is now being a ehaiiacteristic of Fond du Lac, supplied the city with increasing population, thus demanding a larger and better High School for the prospering citizens. In answer to the demand, the school with Professor Peabody at the head, was moved to the lVagner.hlock where the Vxfagner Dry Goods Company now stands. Again in 1870 progress demanded better 2lCC0111111OC.l3tlO1'lS for education. This time a school was erected, though not without discussion as to the size or site, on the corner of Merrill and Amory streets where the Roosevelt High School now stands. Professor Hutchins, who 'succeeded Professor O. C. Steenburg, was succeeded by Professor Mitchell. Various changes occurred during their terms: but in 1894. under Professor L. A. Xvilliams, the more remarkable changes 'took place. An assembly room and domestic science department were added together with the intro- duction of athletics for which Fondy High is now famous. The year 1898 brought Miss XVaters to the head of the school. She, who was an able leader, devoted nine years of faithful service toward its success. Once more in 1911, the year following I. O. Hubbard's term and beginning E. I. VVilson,s term, the general cry was, "more room." To strengthen prosperity another wing was added-now providing the school with an auditorium and stage, with new classrooms, and with chemistry laboratories. And now in 1922, we, the class of ,22, with Mr. F. S. Randle as our principal, bid farewell to the High on Merrill street. XVe hesitate in leaving, but progress bids us go. How little do We realize the great step we have taken in the development of education in our city. How little do we realize the good which is being done for us by our fathers, our principal, and instructorsg but in years to come when the golden time of our hearts has died, when joy has drooped, and when memories begin, we shall see the problem as it stands. Then, more than now, we shall see, realize, and thank our supporters, our principal, and the faculty for the good they have done for us.

Through the expert guiding and coaching of the Misses Hauer and Pinkerton, one of the most difficult plays of the author of the famous K'Martha" stories was reproduced on the stage of the Sheboygan Street Playhouse. You ask, "XVho else was responsible for the success of the play ?" For two weeks preceding the presentation of the play the east rehearsed diligently and earnestly every evening. l'rior to this time, even then, they had memorized their parts, and when the last week hefore the play came, the coaches were working not with eleven or twelve seniors hut with the real cast of "Martha hy the Day." They had perfected a cast which fitted to the play. lt was interesting to watch them rehearse.

Tilt: class of Igzzl XYhat a joy to have travelled with that illustrious class for four years! lt was in September, I9l8, that we entered High School. Remember how we, as Freshmen, rushed to the football and basketball games, especially those which determined our championship in basketball that year? The mixers, too. that year were successful because we all turned out en-masse. In our next year of development we maintained the same loyal spirit towards school activities. Besides being interested in athletics, dancing, and studying. we were learning to appreciate debating. .-X representative of our class, Alex Kaiser, Cnow ol Coloradob was a member of the athrmative team, which won from Oshkosh. Then too, we were already beginning to attract attention through the high scholarship of some of our classmates. As ,luniors we organized for the first time. our previous enrollment being too large to allow organization. .Xfter that first famous election, we were proud to an- nounce as our olhcers: l'resident,Clarenee Simpson: Yice President, Ruth Hauer: Secretary, Helen Strongi Treasurer, Melvin Venue: Social Secretary, Ruth Breitenstein. lt was through their excellent cooperation and guidance that we prospered as a class. liauers, lilewett, Boudry. Nehmer, Reinhold, and Yenne were already headed on the road to fame in football, while Reinhold, Yenne, and XYatson were the junior players on the basketball team. Our great present day debater. Harold Hallows, was already a recognized genius, having done his share in helping Fondy retain her silver loving cup. Dramatics began creeping into our lives. llow we practiced for those try- outs! XYe could boast of Clarence Simpson, Mary High, -loey Nelson, and l,eslie Miller, as real stars, though only the Dramatic Club members could appreciate and vouch for their greatness. In typewriting Evelyn Nehmer and Irma XYarns won prizes For the highest averages. As a result of the large number of our juniors starting French, the present French club was formed in order to make the mastering of the language a little more interesting and less difhcult. And when it came to music we were all there. in chorus, in Glee Club, everywhere. At last we are Seniors. The first of our many tasks as leaders of the school was to elect officers, which we gladly did shortly after the opening of school. Here they are: President, Paul Nehmer: Vice President, Harriet Nehmerg Secretary, 'Verna Margrafg Treasurer, Frank Beck, Social Secretary, Esther Hess. Many thanks to the officers, especially our president, for the successful year we have just experienced. Through his constant intereessions we hnally staged our social functions. Athletics, as through our other three years, have played an important part in the lives of many. Thus, as a class, we have met with great success throughout our four year stay In Fondy High' fItU'I'I't'f .Yt'1llIIt'1', 22.2. i Page Forty-tive The LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-Two Aime Class Prophecy N all you11g people there is a longing for knowledge of the futuregwe just can't stand the suspense. Believing, as I do, in predestination, I consider it my duty to satisfy these youth- ful inquisitors. Not being a prophet myself, and knowing that fortune tellers are "the bunk," I took myself off to the one thing that could solve my problem. It was rather far away, but I like to travel. I had heard of an old hermit who lived far up in the Rocky Mountains. This hermit had in his possession a telescope that could not only look far into space but also far into the future years. Now this hermit was also a miser, and he demanded some compensation for the use of this wondrous telescope. I rushed to the nearest ten cent store and charged fifty cents worth of diamonds to the Senior Class Treasury, The hermit was over- joyed with this exquisite gift, and he gave me the telescope for a whole hour. VVith great haste I adjusted the telescope so that it would show what our posi- tions would be twenty-five years hence. Paul Nehmer was the first person that came within my vision. Paul was the winner in the race for mayor of Fondy. Frank Beck was the next person the tele- scope spotted. He was the treasurer of the bank that had to be established to hold all the High School savings and also the profits on the High School mixers, etc. l was delighted to see Verna Margraf as the leading lady in a great drama on Broadway. Florence Blish was sighted as a society woman in Boston. I caught her serving tea to some of the May Flower descendents. Yes, and Leslie Ver Bryck is a model in a gents clothing store. Genevieve Shea is a social worker, keeping up the good work she started in High School. Carolyn Parsons was a literary genius. Her latest book outshines This Side of Paradise by a long ways. Lynn Wells is president of the United States at this time. There is no "first lady of the land" this term, for Lynn is still a woman hater. Gerry Henning was seen industriously decorating the ceiling of another new theatre in Fondy. I hereby prophesy a career for Gerry as an interior decorator -and also a bright future for Fondy. fMore Bright Lightsj John Gruenheck is Dean of a Select School for girls, at this time, I was happy to see Mary Gromme as a chaperone on a Girl Scout hike. NVe may gather from this chaperone part, that times will change, aft ll. Sarah .Iane Heath was caught razzing little Kenneth fa big boy nowj for getting ome so late. She suspects "the eternal triangle." The telescope allowed me to see Helen Braatz as a German teacher in Fondy High, and Ruthie as a surprise l-for she is not a teacher, but just happily married to Thomas Hardgrove. Harold Hallows, after years of hard struggling, is a fancy dancing teacher. Barbara Ruch is singing in the Grand Opera, also she is taking Mary Gardens place as a "beauty hinter" now how to have rosy cheeks and bright eyes. I was happy to see Ruth Breitenstein and Rublee at their marriage ceremony. CXVe say quite a delay, but we suppose they're sensible-for who said, "You're a long time married?',5 Helen Strong, after many experiences is living in single blessedness. Reynold Pinther is a chemistry teacher earning money to go into the drug business. Daisy Duer is also interested in a local drug store. Tom Breitzman, still a rollicking ehappy. Vtfesley Foshay is a comedian. Eleanor Giddings is a movie star. But! then my hour was up. I just had a glimpse of Helen Gruenheek, but if I told her future-she wouldn't live to enjoy it, so I suppose all's well. Esther R. Hess.

The captains of both the football and basketball tcams were juniors, and the captain-elect of the gridiron squad also belongs to our honorable numbers. Several other juniors are "FU men. The officers of our class were chosen because of their prominence in school activities. The president solidly'held down a large portion of the line on the football team. The vice president has been active in girls' athletics: and the Adonis of our class, the secretary, is likewise important in school basketball.

Teams from the Fox River Yalley and the southern section of the state were played. The hardest opposition was encountered in tl1e Fox River Valley. for it is from this section that the state's strongest teams come.

"Alright, get this guy-he's easy-paste it out-fan him-get a hit ol' boy, get a hit." These are the words that were hurled back and forth by the members of the teams. The occasion for this burst of rooting was the first game in the inter-class base- ball tournament. After an absence of six years, baseball has come back to Fondy High: we hope it has come to stay. The interest displayed was almost as great as the two other major sports of the school. Everybody does not shine as a football or basketball star, but almost all red-blooded boys feven girlsj play baseball. This accounts for the interest i11 the national game. Every class had twenty or more candidates out for practiceg there was plenty of good material from which to choose a team. The organizing was completed, and practice started two weeks before the tournament schedule opened. On May the first the two opening games were played. The tournament continued four weeks, and twenty-four games were played. VVhen the season opened, each class elected a captain and manager. Here they are: Seniors-Leo Brucker, captaing Edward Malone, manager. Juniors-Elmer Schmidt, captain, Donald McKinley, manager. Sophomores-Edward Salchert, captaing Fred Schmidt, manager. Freshmen-Alfred Hintz, captain: Earl Shiels, manager. To them and Coach Fruth must go the credit for the success of the tournament. Also we take this opportunity to compliment Messrs. Liner, Cochran, Brown, Baker, and Sabish upon their umpiring and to thank them for giving their time, and handling so ably their arduous positions. To the students, to the officials, and to the members of the teams the general success and interest of the tournament is due. Since baseball has proved such a success, let us hope that when next Spring rolls around, the April showers besides bringing the customary May flowers will again bring us inter-class baseball.

Seniors Capt., Juniors Capt.-, Juniors , Girls Athletics O girls like Athletics? It is easy to see that they do when you view the activities of the G. A. A. At the beginning of the vear two determined seniors hed ed b rs - eg Miss Reaucage to help them organize a Girls' Athletic Association. The Hrst thing they needed was two competent managers. They called a meeting and chose Bessie Le Fevre as manager for the seniors and Vlfinifred XVise for the juniors. So eager were the girls for haskethall that forty girls came out for the first practice. Even the freshmen were interested. This class was well represented, and they held their own with all the other classes throughout the entire season. Five teams were picked and a color chosen hy each. The first thing they attempted was a color tournament. The contesting teams were well matched. Hot were the lights and hard won the victories. After every team had played every other team, it was found that the Red and Orange teams had won an equal number of victories. There was much excitement during the championship games, for the score was close all the time. The game finally ended in a tie which, when it was played off, made the Orange team champions hy one point. They had to fight hard for their victory for the Red team, composed entirely of seniors, was a strong one. The following were the players on the Orange team: Jessie Peeke, Hazel Porter, Louise Rosenbaum, Marjory Lyneis, and Margaret Connel. As soon as the color tournament was completed the coaches chose a first and second team for each class. Another tournament was held similar to the one just finished. In this the juniors were undisputed champions. I think you are all convinced that girls like athletics hut now tell me this. Does the faculty like athletics? "Sure', comes the answer from all the G. A. A. And take it from me they know. This year the faculty had a haskethall team to he proud of. If their time had not been so much taken up with school affairs, they would, un- Page Seventy-three The LIFE NTNETFEN TWICNTY-TWO doubtedly, have put up a tight that combined force of all the girls could not have resisted. Three times they played the girls. The first game they defeated the girls by an overwhelming score, but the second time they played, the girls were ready for them. They had picked the two best players from each of their flrst teams. This time the teachers had no chance, and it happened that they lost hy the same number of points that they won by before. Quite an interval of time elapsed before they played again. ln fact it was not until the last day of the season that the girls were able to schedule another game with the faculty. Of course, each team Wanted to be the one which was to play the teachers, To avoid all trouble the captains of each team drew lots. For once luck was with the seniors. The game promised to be a hot one. Enthusiasm ran riot among the few spectators who were allowed to watch. True to its promise the game was a close one. Much to the joy ot everyone concerned the game ended in a tie. XVhen the overtime period had been played, the final score stood twelve to thirteen in favor of the seniors. Basketball was not the only sport the girls enjoyed. As soon as the Warm spring days of April arrived they took long hikes into the country. In early May when the courts were ready the girls took up tennis with as much zeal as they had basketball.

Page Seventy-four T116 LIFE NICTICF N TW li NTY-'l' Selvwnty-iixw The LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-Two School Banking INCE many people form their life habits while in school, the value of a plan that will teach a student to save can be easily seen. Such a plan has been worked out by the l'Thrift Incorporated." This plan of teaching students to save at the same time they are being taught how to earn a living, is being introduced into the grade and high schools all over the United States, and was adopted by the local authorities on September 23, 1921. The object is not to secure large deposits, but a large number of depositors,-to instill the spirit of thriftiness into as many school people as possible. It has been estimated that from 315,000 to 320,000 will have been saved at the end of the present school year by the pupils in the city schools. This sum, if it is reached, will represent excellent saving on the part of the Fond du Lac school people. The "Thrift Incorporated" works this plan through the co-operation of the four banks: Commercial, Citizens', Coles, and the First National, of Fond du Lac. This year the actual banking was done by the Citizens' State Bank. Next year, however, another bank will take charge and so on until all have had an opportunity to do the clerical work. Each year the school deposit funds are placed in all four banks where accounts are opened in pupils' names. In the grade schools the banking is done by rooms, the teacher taking charge of passbooks, deposits, and withdrawals. In the high school this work is done by a cashier elected in each roll room. Bank day was held at the I :go Roll Room period on Friday of each week. An account could be started with any sum. Passbooks were issued to the students a week after the accounts were opened. Arrangements Cwith local banksj were so made that even though a student lost his passbook, it was im- possible for him to lose his savings. -Interest on the deposits is three per cent an- nually. Students were reminded of bank day by black and red poster cards placed in all rooms on the day preceding Bank Day and also on the Bank Day itself. Since many people in high school have been loath to transfer their accounts from the local banks to the school bank, the number of depositors from high school has been small. At the present time there are 1657 depositors in the city schools, and during the first half of the school year, they deposited 357243.96 This plan has interested a large number of students in saving. As thrifty school people of today will make better citizens tomorrow, the method has proved to be a decided success. Erwin E.

Now folks---," And so the seventeenth of November, 1921, the Hrst meeting of the Dramatic Club of 1921-22 was called to order by President Foshay. The meeting was ordered for the pur- pose of electing officers for the coming year. Nominations were in order for the vari- ous heads. Immediately it was shown that the Dramatic Club would not be devoid of "pep" and enthusiasm to start off with a "bang:" that the Dramatic Club intended to display this "pep" throughout the year. XVhen the major offices were filled the re- sults were as follows: XVcsley Foshay, who for the past year had served in the executive chair, was re-elected: Betty Rreitenstein, who excelled in "A Modern Cin- derella" last year. was chosen vice-president: Evelyn Nehmer, an actress in the above mentioned play, was elected secretary. After a long and somewhat heated discussion on the merits and demerits of certain members of the Senior Class, Tom Hardgrove was chosen treasurer. Now don't: breathe a sigh of relief. Next came the election of other officers. For critics, three seniors were selected: Ruth Hauer, Leo Brueker, and Frank Beck. Pierce Blewett was chosen stage manager, with Darrell Thomsen and Page Seventy-seven The LlFE N1NE'1'13EN TWENTY-'rwo john Poole as his assistants. Then came the election of the mistress of the wardrobe. Talk about the Battle of the Amazons! Finally, after the dust had settled and the hairpins had been collected and returned to their proper owners, Charlotte Boulay was declared the victor. Thus, the election was begun and completed in one night. We had chosen well, and there were no regrets. Now, as the above business for the year's program had been finished, the Misses Hauer and Pinkerton, coaches, turned their full attention to plays. At the second meeting of the club two plays were given: "The Workhouse Warcl," written by Lady Gregory, a distinguished playwright of the twentieth century, was presented by Leslie Miller, Josephine Nelson, and Darrell Thomsen. The other play was, "Between the Soup and the Savory," a Harvard Dramatic Club production. Maurine VVisnom, Mary High, and Florence Blish composed the cast. In either play it was difiicult to find the stars, for all displayed a marked degree of talent. 'Tis no small wonder that with such interesting plays and casts the attendance of the meeting was very large. Two weeks following this meeting came Christmas. In accordance with the time honored custom, the Dramatic Club took charge of the program for the closing day of school. By the time the day arrived, the coaches had perfected a program worthy of the highest praise. Two plays were given: One, "The Florist Shop," in which six seniors appeared. Following this play, the one act comedy. "Between the Soup and the Savory," which had been presented to the club members a few weeks before, was by request reproduced by the same cast. As each play progressed, roar upon roar and applause after applause swept through the auditorium of the Roosevelt High School. It was the last day in the Merrill Street School, and it certainly was a merry one despite the overhanging gloom created by the fact that.we were to leave these familiar haunts and corners which we cherished. Now that the holidays were over, the coaches proceeded to initiate the junior candidates into the ways and methods of the club. On january fifteenth the first two junior tryouts were held. One "The Dear Departed," the other, "VVhen Love is Young,"-both Harvard Dra1natic Club plays. A wealth of material was unearthed in each comedy. At the next meeting' of the club the three junior plays were presented, "The Neighbors," by Zona Gale, "The Real Thing," by john Kendricks Bangs, and "Manners and Modes," by Marjorie Benton Cooke. As a sort of senior tryout for material for the class play, Oliver Goldsmith's, "She Stoops to Conquer," was pre- sented on the same evening. This play was indeed very worthy of the highest praise. ln bringing forth that famous play of Oliver Goldsmith's, the coaches were pro- ducing one of the most difficult plays in historyg however, the cast mastered every difficulty. The excellent interpretation of the plot and the respective parts, along with the unprompted action of the individuals of the cast, made the play stand out among all others produced this year. Considering the fact that the production was a rather ambitious one to master in so short a time and also considering the difficulty under which the members of the cast labored, one can only say that the play was excep- tionally well handled. Now, as one reviews the past, he may wonder how these students accomplished these things in dramatics. Whether one refers to the cast of each play or not, is not known. But if such be the case, let me give directions to the right thoroughfare. It is a great gift to be able to give credit, but it is a greater gift to be able to place it in the right place at the right time. How would the club have progressed and prospered had it not been for the intelligent leadership of the coaches. Miss Hauer and Miss Pinkerton? How many hours each week have they directed their work toward the betterment of the club? How many hours after a lengthy school day have they not taken from their alloted time for recreation to provide plans and means by which the Dramatic Club, our club-your club---might prosper and be ranked among the leadnig clubs of the school, if not the leading club. Hail to the coaches! All credit is theirs. All praise belongs to them. Tom Hardgrotm, '22.

The year started successfully when a large number of candidates were initiated. ln fact, there were so many to initiate that the master of ceremonies flames Dollard and his crewj found it rather hard work, not only because of the large number to initiate, but also because the Frosh seemed larger in dimensions. But with the help of Pierce Blewett everyone enjoyed himself par- ticularly the freshmen. Things went along nicely for a while, -that is, after the initiation,-and the debaters soon began priming themselves for the tryouts. A wealth of good ma- terial was uncovered, and the following were chosen: Affirmative, blames Dol- lard, Edward Jenison, and Charles Dol- lard, Negative, Kenneth VVorthing, Roy Thiel, and Harold Hallowst Charles Chandler and Ray Graf were chosen as alternatives. The next important problem involved a question of finance, for money had to ' be secured in order that the debaters. might make the annual trip to Madison. This was a regular job, for the boys couldn't get very far with something like R, S. B,-own! Coach fifty-nine cents in the treasury depart- ment. But coach Brown soon came to the rescue by staging an operetta. lt was a huge success, and a much needed sum of money was realized. Later in the year, in accordance with the usual custom, class debating teams were selected. The junior, sophomore, and freshman tryouts were all duly held, and the following were chosen: juniors, Dorothy Hanson, Ray Graf, and Rollie Gibson, sophomores, George Svenson, Oscar Rodenkirch, and Robert Watson, freshmen, Julius Richter, R. Gibson, and Orville Hankwitz. 1 ld Regular monthly meetings were held in which several impromptu debates were ie . The oflicers for the year: First Semester-Kenneth Worthirlg, President: Carl Keyser, Vice President, james Dollard, Secretary, Ray Graf, Treasurer, Charles Dollard, Critic.

The subject of the debate was, "Resolved that a canal for ocean-going vessels should be constructed between the Atlantic Ocean and the Great Lakes by the United States and Canada on a joint basis." The Fondy team was defeated three to nothing. On the same evening the Fondy negative team debated at Sheboygan on the same issue. The Fondy team lost the decision two to one. This year only one member of the school debating team is graduating, thus giving the High School live experi- enced debaters for next year's team. Inter Class Debates In April, the first inter-class debate was held between the freshmen and the sophomores. The question debated was, 'KResolved that the Phillipines be given their independence." The decision resulted in a three to nothing decision in favor of the Sophomores. The Juniors, debating on the Soldier Bonus Bill with the Sophomores, won a unanimous decision.

It was a year which broke all records for development of organ- ization and for interest in club activity. That the Classical Club was the livest, peppiest organization in the High School was acknowledged by the student body before school had been in session a month. The State has successfully conducted a very realistic election campaign, has held a glorious celebration of the feast of Saturn, has conducted a most serious trial, one in which the life and honor of a citizen was at stake, has taken rapid strides in the development of legislation regulating elections, and has capped the year with the annual picnic. What more could one wish of a real live organization? Page Ninety-three The LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-'1'W0 .Q 3 U al ssic Cla cu .-Cf I-4 Page Ninety-four The LIFE N INETEEN TWENTY-TWO At present the club is enjoying its most prosperous year since the time of Romulus himself. There are more citizens registered than ever before, and more people have paid their taxes than ever before. There has been a wonderful interest in the development of the organization, and, as a result, it has grown tremendously. There are 164 citizens who paid their IQ22 taxes. The treasuries are bursting with their stores of grain, and the officials are at a loss to know what to do with it. For the first time since the organization of the second Roman Empire, a special tax was not levied to support the annual picnic. A precedent was broken this year when primary elections were held to nominate the candidates for next year's elections. This will enable the club to get under way much more quickly next fall, and the election may be held as soon as school is opened. The first eruption to cause a loss of sleep to some of the citizens of the great republic was the annual election. Early in the school year, both parties announced their candidates. The most eventful campaign in history was staged. The plebeians started it by breaking away from the home-made articles, and embarking on a real campaign. Real money of the realm was used by both sides, and the campaign proved to be a whirlwind. The plebeians distributed printed cards and tags. along with a very good grade of gum. The patricians offered some attractive circulars, and decorated Room Thirteen, the voting polls, in such a manner that a stranger would have thought that it was a butcher shop on Christmas eve. The most notable event of the campaign was the election rally. Each party was given a room, and got as many Nsophsl' to enter their room as possible. After the plebeians had drawn the largest part of the crowd, and had presented their program, the patricians were allowed to enter and address the crowds. It was a great success, and made both sides work harder. The plebeians this year attempted to do something never before dreamed of. They attempted to put both of their candidates in office. The patricians were forced to concentrate on one candidate in order to prevent this. When the result of the balloting was known, it was found that Clarence Simpson, Senior, and Adolph Hntter, junior, were elected. ' A lt was a wonderful election, one in which the plots and counter-plots, bribery, money, and sometimes the truth, played a leading part. Real money was spent, and a real election was held! The excitement of the election had not subsided when the joyful tidings of the plans for a glorious celebration of the Saturnalia were conveyed to the populace. On December 19th, all classes and creeds gathered to feast and make merry. All as'sembled in Room I4 of the old building to help celebrate the greatest of all Roman festivals, the feast of the Saturnalia. Every form of pleasure was enjoyed. Even a gambling house lived for a short while Cuntil the proprietor won all the moneyj. A hne program preceded the celebration. Each of the newly elected officials gave a short talk, discussing the duties of his office. Then the evening was given over to cele- bration, and Bacchus reigned supreme until late that evening. Close upon the heels of the most enjoyable celebration came the terrifying news that the most relentless of all prosecutors, Marcus Tullius Cicero Dollard. the greatest in eloquence throughout the Roman State, had announced his attention of prosecuting the former pro-praetor to Africa, Gaius Verres Beck. Quintus Hortensius Simpson, Cicero's only rival in eloquence throughout the world, was secured by the defendant. The day of the trial came, and with it many witnesses from Africa were brought here at a great expense of the state. The jury voted 7-5 for acquittal. The Roman State has enjoyed its most successful and prosperous year since its founding. It has the largest membership, it has its treasuries hlled to overnowing, and it has more interest than ever before. With the drastic election reforms, the organ- ization has taken on a modern appearance, and has greatly increased the interest in it. At no time since the days of Romulus himself has there been such unity and concord, peace and prosperity, throughout the Roman world as that which we are now enjoying. Edward Jenisonv, 323.

The Peptimist REAT oaks from little acorns grow-so grew the Peptimist in one semester from a small four.column six page paper to a large five column six page paper making it the largest high school paper in the state. To some the preparation of the Peptimist appeared all play and no work and perhaps they were right but on the general face of things they were wrong. Tl1e Peptimist was fortunate to have students who were familiar in their respective depart- ments with actual newspaper work and to them the familiar routine of work was pleasure. More so it was pleasure because they were given absolute rights to run the paper as they knew it was proper for it to be run. Mr. Sabish is the person to whom the greatest credit for this admirable work is due. It was through this initiative that the scheme for the paper materialized and received the sanction of the Association of Commerce. Carl Keyser, the editor, was responsible for the delightful manner in which the stories were written-in true news- paper style. To Lynn Wells goes the credit for his skillful management and directing of the publication, who made possible the Peptimist. VVe, the staff of the Pcptimist, sincerely hope that the students who receive the appointment as the staff for IQ22 and 1923 will carry on with this good work and make the Peptimist last as long as that great stone building on Linden Street. Fondy High has had school papers of all sizes and descriptions from time immemorial but none were permanent institutions. Upon this one idea the Peptimist was based-permanancy. Those who carry on next year with the Peptimist will find much available material and help in the students now going to school. They also will End the business men willing to help them in their work and as eager as they to see the paper continue. The paper has established a reputation as an excellent adver- tising medium a11d a select one. This is obvious from the large a1nou11t carried in its columns. Besides furnishing amusement and recreation to the pupils it also gave them an unexcelled opportunity to engage in actual newspaper work. Greater still it took the place of an auditorium and bridged with a nicety that chasm existing between upper and lower classmen. The success of the Peptimist is primarily due to the sound business principles upon which it was conducted. There existed no sentimentalitv that was so evident in former papers-that it was the student's duty to purchase a copy of the paper and that as high school paper and a civic improvement it was the duty of the merchant to sup- port it by advertising. Nothing of the sort was resorted to as a method of obtaining subscribers and advertisers when we sold advertising space we did not sell space but we sold circulation-a select body that could not be effectively reached through any other local medium.

The club has been a decided success, numbering about one hundred juniors, Seniors, and Alumni who have graduated within the last two years. Through the eil'orts of the advisor, Miss Franke, who is head of the Commercial Department, and the other Com- mercial teachers, the club has heard talks of many of the most successful business men in the city. Their suggestions and advice have given the members a chance to know what is expected of them in the business world. The .'Xlumni. too, by relating their ex- periences have helped the members to keep from making the same mistakes they have made. Little talks. poems, and playlets, all relating in some ways to business, have been given by the students themselves. ln fact. all the meetings have been so interesting, peppy, and educational that the Commercial students have received a great benefit by being members of the club. The purpose has been accomplished.-to make the graduates of the Commercial Course better and more successful business people. The club has a song of its own, written by Miss Clough.

The members, numbering now about fifty, have been greatly benefited by the Cercle. Althought it is a purely social organization, through the members and its leader working in unison, it has proved to be educational as well. The purpose of the club is to familiarize the members with French lifeg this includes their customs, politics, society, novelists, dramatics, and poets. The programs, enjoyed at the various meetings. inspired in the members a keen desire to become more acquainted with France. Everyone did his share in contributing to the programs, and all the meetings were well attended. The officers and members were active. As a result we now have a thriving club. The meetings are eagerly looked forward to by everyone, for French gzunes prove entertaining and amusing. Pam- One Hundred One The LIFE N1NE'rEEN TWENTY-TWO Le Cercle was organized last year: it had forty members. About ten of these graduated in IQZIQ but in spite of this fact, we now have fifty members. Gur first meeting was held in October-a get together meeting: its purpose was to have the members become acquainted. The constitution was read and explained to the new members. Refreshments were served and enjoyed by all. A discussion about the merits and demerits of the French Government ensued at the next meeting in November. This discussion was in the form of a debate: conse- quently the interest of everybody was aroused. One of the unusual events of the year was a coasting and sleigh ride party out to Fmpire where all were cordially entertained by Nina Ottery, a member of the club. Although the weather was tres froin' it did not phase the jolly crowd. The next big event was the Moliere program given on Moliere's birthday anni- versary. Moliere is the greatest French dramatist, a writer of comedy. Members of the Cercle presented his three act drama in a very entertaining and amusing manner. The drama was enacted by the following cast: Medecin Malgre de Lui Sganarelle ---- - Lloyd Plank Martine Qsa femmej XVinifred XVise Robert ---- - John Poole Lucind ---- jean Nelson Leandre famorcux de Lucindcj - Alfred Baus Geronte Qpere de Lucindej - Oliver Schmiedel Valire fdomestiquej - - Leonard Benedict Lucus Cdomestiquej - - - Verna Margraf Through programs like these, a much more thorough knowledge of French has been gainedg things which could not be learned from text books were gleaned or added to our knowledge of French life and language. Our second annual picnic was held in Juneg our honorable president invited us to his cottage at NVillow beach. French games and songs were in vogue. After the election of officers for 1922-1923, lunch was daintily served in French style. Every one unanimously agreed that the picnic was a grand success.

The club was organized in September of IQZI. The class has handled many worth while projects. ln May, 1921, the art and music departments produced f'Tl1v House That lack B11ilf."' The music department handled the musical and dramatic parts of the play while the art class designed the costumes and painted thelstage setting. This play brought in about S530 for the two departments. It was the purpose of the art class to purchase statuary for the art room and the library, but the lack of space in either room prevented that. Instead, a victrola has been purchased for the purpose of teaching music appreciation. The victrola is to remain in the art room for the present. The first semester of this school year the art class members designed Christmas cards and, selling them at ten and fifteen cents each, netted about seventy dollars more for this department. Some of this money is being used for books for the art department. The members of the Art Club wish to express their thanks for the new building, -to all who participated in procuring it. Now, then, watch the art class and Club grow to be a truly worthwhile Fondy High organization! XVateh us! Nothing can hinder us, for our motto is IVOVIQ and Grow, and our purpose is to get there! ll.

Great credit for the success of the Dramatic Club and several other school functions is due to the young men in tl1e above pictures,-the members of the Dramatic Club Orchestra. The self-sacrifice. the perseverance, the spirit of cooperation-in fact. the school spirit which involves all these traits-that these musicians displayed throughout the two years of the life of the organization is commendable. The Dramatic Club orchestra was oganized in 1920 with seven members: it has grown to a group of twelve. Twice a week, regularly, regardless of anything, all faithfully attended practicesg nor did they let practices interfere with school work, They are all good students. All put heart and soul in their music and cheerfully answered every suin- mons to play. This year the Club has made especial progress under the leadership of Leonard Benedict. Through his ability to direct. the orchestra has managed diflicult classical selections as well as the latest popular hits. No one player should be given special credit: each did justice to his instrument. No matter when the orchestra played. everywhere in the audience came cries of, "NVho is the coruetist?

Page Une lluniliw-d Seven Tim LIFE NI NICTEEN TWENTY-Two High School Orchestra There is always music in nature. Our High School Orchestra is natural. indeed. Under the excellent direction of Miss Stocking, who has rendered her services for its success, it has attained the name of a good orchestra. Though it never plays music com- monly known as "jazz", it has won favor by playing popular classical music. If the orchestra reorganizes next year. the class of '23 will have an orchestra to be proud of. for the good practice of this year prepares it for readiness. Only two of the twelve in the orchestra are graduating. Because the new High School lacks an assembly hall ,the orchestra lacks the opportunity to display its talent before the student bodyg but, nevertheless, it has gained its name from playing at outside entertainments. The ofhcers of the orchestra are: President, Kermit Storduerg Treasurer, Rudolph Gneiserg Librarian, Lawrence Galow. The members are: Roberta Dille, piano: Kermit Storduer, Genevieve Shea, Lawrence Galow, Clarence Hayes, Thelma Vandervolt, and Maurice Fitzsimmons, violing Laverne Kinkel, cornet: Rudolph Gneiser and George McCanahey, saxaphone, Bernard Nimmer, clarinetg and Lyle Fradner, drums. Each member of the orchestra is capable of bringing out honors for the coming classes. The graduates wish them success.

"This letter just came, and was waiting for us at the postfoffice. I had a deuce of a time getting that old fossil of a postmaster to give it to me, hut he forked up when I gave him a quarter," It was a warm afternoon in the middle of the month of july as four American boys, browned almost to the color of natives were sitting around the mouth of a tunnel that ran into the base of Mount Zacapeta near Moctezuma in the state of Sonora, Mexico. One of the boys had just returned from the village and held in his hand a letter which at this time was the object of the discussion which was going on among them. "He says," said Louis, hthat the ore contains a greater percentage of metal than any ever before taken from this territory." "Gee, Louis, I'm sure sorry that I wouldift take your word for it, but Uncle Wfill was so stubbornly set upon the fact that there wasn't any pay dirt around here that I didn't hardly dare to believe you," said a rather tall, thin boy,-by name, Herbert Carter and who had inherited the property from his uncle. "Believe me, Herb, I'm as glad as I ever was that there is real silver in this ore, -not so much for the cash we'll get out of it as because I was right in my assaying of the ore being correct," said Louis. f'But see here you two," addressing other mem- bers of the company, "What have you to say about our good luck F" "I was just recalling the fact that all of our dynamite is gone and that we can- not go on with the work until more comes,' said Charles Gregor, one of the two silent ones. "Never mind about that," said Herbert, "I have arranged for a supply of dynamite to arrive at Moctezuma tonight by pack train, and I will go to town in the morning and bring it out." "Good for youli' shouted George Meredith, the remaining member of the party, "and now I move that we clear away- this crushed rock to be ready for action when Herb gets in tomorrow." The remainder of the afternoon was spent in doing as George had suggested and by nightfall the boys were all set to begin work as soon as the dynamite arrived. Herbert left very early in the morning. The others made themselves busy by drilling more holes into the end of the tunnel in preparation for blasting down the ore. Louis, however, busied himself in making another assay of the ore in order to prove to himself that he was correct in his assertions. 'tVVell, George, that much is done," said Charles as they handled the last load of crushed rock out of the tunnel. 'tBut, say, what's Herb's great rush all of a sudden ?" Suddenly Herbert rushed into the camp on his horse with his pack mule gallop- ing as fast as she could behind him. Drawing up before the boys he gasped out. "jose Iquique is just around the base of the mountain: he has found that we have rich ore on the place and is planning to kill us and run the mine himself. I just met old Manual and he told me about it l" The camp was at once a scene of hubdub. Everyone of the boys grasped a box or bag of supplies and rushed into the tunnel. It was their plan to barricade the tunnel until the help that Manual was after could arrive. Nearly everything was in and Louis was just carrying in his precious assay outfit when the bandits swung around the bend in the road. Everyone ran into the tunnel and grabbed a rille, suddenly there was a dull, rumbling sound which grew louder and louder. "It's a landslide! a landslide!" shouted George. "jose has started it to smother us to death and be able to claim an alibi li' As he spoke the avalanche of rock reached the tunnel and blocked the mouth of it, completely shutting off every bit of lightg indeed it was so dark that the bottles of Louis" chemicals which ordinarily seemed like bits of diamonds in a piece of colored stone were as completely out of sight as though they did not exist. "Where is the dynamite ?', asked Herbert, who was not excited as the rest. Page Une Hundred Ten The LI FE NINETEEN TwENTv-Two "It's out there," groaned Charles, "I was just about to bring it in when jose and his band came up and I dropped it and ran for my life." "Well, then the best that we can do is to last as long as we can and hope that Manuel arrives with help before we suffocate or perish." A'What's this F" cried George seizing upon a queerly shaped object which was lying in a box upon the ground in a corner of the tunnel. "It's a half dozen gas masks that I ordered so that we could work in the shaft before the dynamite fumes worked their way out," said Herbert, "VVe can put them on when the air gets bad." "Is there any way by which I could have a light ?" asked Louis, "I think I can do something to help out if I could have a lightf' "Here is a flashlight and a couple of batteries, I used them in my test," said Charles. "You might use thesef' Louis at once went over to his chemicals and began to get out an array of bottles and set them up on one of the boxes standing in the tunnel. "VVill you hand me that little jar of mercury in my dutlle bag there George? I brought it thinking it might come in handy. That's it, thauksf' And he said no more for a time. Suddenly he said, "All right, better get out the masks. I have to make a little smoke here that would finish us all too quickly if we breathed it, however. I managed to get an oxygen generator going and it will help somewhat to counteract the effects of the gas." Suddenly there was a loud hissing noise and even through the intense darkness the boys could see dense white clouds of smoke ascending to the ceiling of the tunnel. appearing ghostly in the Stygian darkness of the place. The smoke then turned red and they could see the face of Louis in his gas mask, appearing almost like Satan without his wings. I In a few minutes Louis picked up the dish in which he had put his materials. Removing his mask, for the gas had risen to the ceiling, he made a motion to the others to follow his example. "Could you help me here a minute, Herbert ?" he asked, "just bring those two hatteries, the switch and about thirty feet of double copper wire that we used for blasting the rock." Taking up a small vessel he walked over to the blocked mouth of the tunnel and commenced to dig a little hole in it with his hands. He now put the little vessel in the hole, inserted the wires and ran back to Herbert. "Everyone back of that heap with your faces to the Hoor,"' he shouted. All of the boys rushed to the wall that they had built in readiness for tl1e at- tack which they had expected from jose, Louis alone remained behind the rest to run his wires along the ground and cover them with anything which was handy. "Do hurry Louis," called Charles, "The air is getting so bad in here that 1 am almost asleep now." "Put on those masks, all of you and be ready to run farther back i11to the tunnel if necessary," was the only reply, then of a sudden there was a sharp report followed by a deafening roar and rocks began to fall on all sides of the boys. As soon as the dust had partly cleared away Louis again placed one of his small vessels in a hole, made for it by him and another deafening report closely fol- lowed the first one. A third time Louis repeated his operation, "This is the last of the 'dopey, boys, if this doesn't do the trick we'll have to rely upon Manual and the help that he is after," he said. Suddenly there was another tremendous noise three times as loud as either of the other, to the boys waiting as they were for the results of Louis' explosive, it seemed an eternity before they could see, so great was the cloud of dust that was raised, when suddenly a shout reached their ears and tearing off their gas masks they rushed toward the wall that had held them in the tunnel: as they neared the entrance and the dust became less dense they saw a small streak of daylight pouring in through a hole in their prison wall. just as they reached the wall Page One Hundred Eleven The LIFE MNETEEN 'l'WEN'1'Y-TWO Manuel jumped through the hole and rushed-in to see if they were safe, hastily jab' bermg at them in Spanish, he informed them that he had returned with help in time to drive off -lose, but too late to prevent him from starting the avalanche, his associates however, had started to dig away the wall and had helped considerably in making Louis' experiment successful. "But where is Louis ?" asked Herbert as the others assembled around Manuel. "He in cavef, replied o11e of the Mexicans. "Perhaps dead, Quien Sabe ?" "For heavens sake man Get him out!" shouted Herbert, "It was he who saved our lives tn '11 , The man hastened in and soon appeared carrying Louis over his shoulder. laying him down gently he said simply, 'tHe asleep, too much bad air." t'Louis! Louis l" cried Herbert shaking him by the arm, "Louis wake up l" 'tWhat is it Pl' queried Louis lazily as he slowly opened his eyes. "Louis, we're out and it was you who did it! Oh, Louis l'll never joke about your chemistry again, but Louis what on earth did you use to get us out of that earthly hole P" "Fulminate of Mercury. Action of nitric acid on mercury and then put in alcohol-grey powder-explodes with spark-must sleep." And Louis' voice trailed off into nothing but the memory of what he had said. '6And he made it all himself! and we have been kidding him all the time we have been down here about his chemistry and now it has saved our lives I" cried Herbert. 'lYes" echoed Charles, "and if it hadn't been for him we would still be in that awful place." V That night the boys were grouped about the campfire talking over the event of the morning. "VVell, Louis," said Herbert. "your assaying surely was correct for this telegram which came this afternoon surely was meant to encourage us and if it l1adn't been for your knowledge of chemistry we wouldnt have needed any en- couragementf' "Oh forget it, Herbert," said Louis, "you have harped on that all day! Of course. I was glad to get you out of there, myself included, but gee, did you ever stop to think how good a breath of good, clean, fresh air tasted like before today?" Raymond Fay. age E? 1. r Page One Hundred Twelve The LIFE NINETEEN TWENTY-Two I Cut Grove From My Study Window S I gazed from my study window, 1ny heart was filled with amazement and ad- miration for nature. Such perseverance as she brought forth in her struggle against her rebellious forces could never be equalled by man. Nothing daunted her. She fought with uncontrollable fury against any force that sought to destroy what she had built. Then, as since the beginning of time, these antagonists battled savagely in silence. . King Sleet slipped silently from his frozen home one night. Vliith his wizard lips, the ice giant kissed the treesg and nature was transformed. No longer did she droop to hide her nudity. She drooped modestly beneath her garments of ice. The matchless filigree wrought by the ice created a towering castle that could not be equalled by an emperor. The sky stretched over it all, forming a dome of azure. The sun beamed forth, throwing his rays upon the ice which reflected the dazzling light as complete as a million candles reflect light. Some trees bristled high, reaching toward the heavens as battlements guarding against any destructive force that might have sought to invade. Within these protecting arms drooped those less stalwart. Their ice ladened branches formed delicate chambers where the frost elves etched their pictures. The north winds ceased their fierce blasts. King Sleet receded, leaving the field to a more powerful opponent, the west wind. Slowly the ice melted, and the snows disappeared. Tiny rivulets appeared upon the ground i11 countless numbers. The gentle west wind alld the warm sun played havoc. Streams became swollen. The rivulets became streams. Swifter and swifter came the waters. Faster and faster they spread until the Hoor of the former ice palace was coverd with water. The streams became rushing torrents. Huge cakes of ice rushed madly by. destroying all that came before them. Alas, the ice no longer moved. Ice cake upon ice cake piled high in the raging Hood. The waters rose higher. The last hummock disappeared beneath the surging Hood. Nothing but a broad expanse of water greeted my eyes. Ah! W'hat is that? The air is more fresh and fragrant. The very universe vibrated as nature exerted herself. The waters had Spellt their strength. They had receded to the course where nature had allotted them. Nature emerged from the chaos of a faded year. The ice gave way to the green of the leaves. The waters were vanquished by the grass. A new day dawned. After her long struggle, nature gave way to sweet repose among her self erected monuments. The sweet savor of nature's slumber was transmitted to the earth: and she, too, was now at rest. The pale blue sky was broken occasionally by slow moving banks of Heecy clouds. The sun beamed forth, throwing its warm rays 1111011 the green earth. Trees swayed softly in the refreshing breeze. Birds flitted merrily about. warbling their love song. Squirrels chattered from hidden nooks. Butter-cups and daisies burst from the sun-flecked green and turned to face the sun. A sweet odor of the woodland glen drifted from beyond the river that rippled by, whispering its happy song. A The wind shifted. Fragrant breezes drifted i11to my study window through the open air. My study was no longer a gloomy workshop. It has been transformed into a paradise. It throbbed with new life. It radiated sweetness. In the Spring we need not go to nature. Now she has beautified herself and has come to us for caresses. Oliver Schmiedcl, l'23. 1 rn 47. II11' Llhlu NINETIQEN TWENTY-'l'WO Behold D011 Mac!

Mike was once a student in the Fond du Lac High School. XVay hack in 1883 he began his endeavor to clinih the rocky road of knowledge. Aside from arduous study, he assisted his father, who preceded him as regular janitor of the school. Having been horn directly across from the old high school, Mike was naturally attached to it. Mr. Hamilton entered into the real role of janitor in 1884. He worked continually in this capacity for thirty-seven years. That he possessed a constancy and reliability of service is vindicated hy the fact that during his thirty-seven years of faithful service he was forced to leave his post but once,-and that time hecausc of illness. He ever proved to be genial and willing throughout the period that we knew him. And so, Mike, we all turn to you in one hearty word of thanks in appreciation of your faithful service.
