Not for literary splendor
Not for criticism's view
But only to reveal the spirit
And history of our past to you.
To tell you of our school,
Its environment and name,
And to tell you of the student, '
His activities and fame.
Of his victories in football,
Of his triumphs in debate,
Of his struggles in the class-room,
And his renowned basketball fate.
We 'then submit to you this tale,
Your annual and our class book too,
With best wishes, both good and true,
From the 1918 class to you.'

Your Flag and My Flag
Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today,
In your land and my land,
And half the world a-way!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes forever gleam,
Snow-white and soul white
The good fore-fathers dream,
Sky-blue and true-blue
With stars to gleam a-right,
The gloried guid-on of the day,
A shelter through the night.

The Unleafnied LCSSOI1
As Freshmen we came, with ribbons of green,
And on our sleeves, a small "eighteen",
And through the years we bore our name Well,
The honors themselves are too many to tell.
But, now that our Senior year is done,
We wonder where those years have gone.
Dim grow their fancies, forgotten they lieg
Like coals in the ashes, they darken and die.
But still we are proud of those years that have flown,
For merrier years we never have known.
Now for the last time we assemble together,
As we've assembled for four years, regardless of Weather
Sadly, reluctantly, happily we come,
Thinking that now our Work is done.
But we who have not knocked before,
Knock at last at Life 's hard door.
It opens and we all pass through,
Still green as the grass when covered with dew.
We have yet to learn of a world of care,
Of sorrows almost too heavy to bear,
But best of all, of the joys that come
At the close of day when our work is done.
That peace is sweeter, after strife,
Of the world of meaning in the small Word-Life.
-Cora E. Rutledge.

The Class of '19
Rah! Rah! Rah! for the Juniors,
The class that's got the "pep," '
We 're always ready for fun,
And We've got a dandy "rep"
Did you ever hear of Ford, Monaghan,
Mulroney, Healy or Breen?
Well, they 're the ones that do the orating,
On our Wonderful debating teams.
Wey're always there in scholarship,
Ready to get all "E's"
While on the armory floor,
Our boys shoot baskets with perfect ease.
We're a real bunch, true and loyal,
To our dear old Fort Dodge High.
May We cheer hear colors royal,
In the years of by and by.
May We ne'er forget the lessons learned,
In her spacious halls of fame,
And, throughout all the years to -come,
May We reflect honor on her name.

Day by day to school we go
Learning what is taught us,
Gathering strength our rows to hoe,
As the years come to us.
At Fort Dodge High we work away,
Our minds with knowledge filling,
The teachers knowing well each day
That we are most unwilling.
0 Sophomores dear, don't fail to mindg
To do what's told you kindly
For Father Blakely's sure to find
If you 're going through it blindly.
For we intend our work to do
And not to shirk, or drop it.
Our grades the best they all shall be,
So dig we must and never stop it.
Cheer up, dear Sophs, and do not fret,
If things don 't come your wayg
But peg away till troubles are met,
Rewards will be yours some day.
Sophomores dear, you all will agree,
Our teachers are good and kind as can be,
So buckle down your work to do,
For its two years more until we're through.

Here's to the class of '21,
The best you 'll ever-see!
Other classes have come and gone,
But none so good as We.
When first We came to Fort Dodge High,
They thought that we were green.
"Greenhorns," We heard them sigh,
But soon they'll change their sigh, I Ween.
We are the class of '21
A class to be remembered,
By our dear old Alma Mater,
For the service We have rendered.
We have the "dope" that makes the man,
And We will show them that we can
Much better do than those before
In track, debate, and field and floor.
So here 's to the class of '21,
The best you 'll ever see!
Other classes have come and gone
But none so good as we.

BY HELEN HALFPAP
No one has given more untiringly of her
time and ability than our music instruc-
tor, Mrs. Carmichael. Thrbugh her effort-
and devotion, to the Fort Dodge High
School she has "put us on the-mapl' in a
musical way. We are represented as
strongly in this line asrin any of the activ-
ities in which Fort Dodge High has par-
ticipated. Our music department has,
under her supervision, grown to be a large
and flourishing one. Her spirit is most
unusual and her "pep" is inspiring to all.
One of the unique features of music in
the Fort Dodge High School is the Assem-
bly Period. Then it is when the entire
student body come together to sing
rounds, folk and Hpepl' songs, which are
much enjoyed. During the Assembly
Period, we sometimes hear noted musi-
cians. This year Mr. Ellison, the Scotch
Comedian, sang some Scotch songs for us.
The inspiration of the Assembly music
goes with us during the week and we
always look forward to Thursday.
Mrs. Carmichael was anxious that the
teachers should feel the inspiration, that
she received from being before us while
singing, so,each week a teacher was called
to the platform.
This Assembly music is traditional in
our Fort Dodge High School and we hope
that we never will become too numerous
to have this weekly Assembly Period. It
is an inspiration to stand in such a gather-
ing, in these stirring times, and sing our
National Anthem. The students sing
wholeheartedly. They are exceedingly
fond of singing "Jingle Bells," "Seeing
Nellie Home" and "Nancy Lee." We
are perhaps the only large school in the
State that has such a period, but we feel
that the benefits derived doubly repay us
for the half hour a week which we devote
Music classes are required only for the
Sophomores and Freshmen. Other pupils
are allowed to take this work which is
given once a week. This is a prepara-
tion for the more advanced training,
which they receive.
These classes felt the need of a Vic-
trola. Mr. B. M. Joy of the Joy Music
Store co-operated with the High School
students and we secured a splendid
Edison by selling tickets for the Skov-
gaard Concert. This enables the stu-
dents to learn more about the noted
Slngers and players.
The Glee Clubs form an important
part in our High School Activities. The
Boys' Glee Club is composed of 35 mem-
bers, whose appearances occasion much
pleasure. No one, who has heard them
S1123 "Who Did" and the "Boola Song"
will fail to appreciate this statement.
They sing before the debates, and other
High School affairs, but their activities
are not -confined to High School. They
sang at the State Convention of the
Baptists held at Fort Dodge, also at the
Grain Dealers' Association, and at the
Patriotic address of Senator Kenyon.
During the year various Community
Sings have been held and the boys have
sung at these.
The Girls' Glee Club is as live an
organization as the Boys' Glee Club!
They are as interested and loyal in their
work as the boys are. There are 55 mem-
bers. They wear white middies with
red ties. The uniformity is a striking
feature. They sang at the Baptist Con-
vention, Grain Dealers' Association, at
the Patriotic Address of Senator Ken-
yon, and at the Community Sings. They
created quite a sensation with their
t'Knitting Song." Each girl had a
knitting bag and at intervals during the
song, each one knitted.
Both Glee Clubs made their star
appearance in the Red Cross benefit.
They sang National songs of the Allies,
ending up with the Star-Spangled Ban-

One ot the latest organizations in our

organized in the tall under the direction
of Mr. llollins. llast year our school
bought r'Iil50.00 worth of instruments, in-
cluding a tuba, baritone and two drums.
The material at first seemed rather
searee but never-the-less about October
first, the Band was organized. Only
three of the boys had had experience in
playing on instruments, but the spirit
was good and each one was very much
interested, so the Band has flourished.
Many bought instruments, began to
work. and in a short time were playing
standard selections. Now there arc
On February ninth, they made their
formal debut before the Assembly. VVe
all were astounded, for although the past
few weeks, we had been hearing strange
music, we never onee thought they could
present so finished an appearance.
Mr. Collins comes to us as a musician
and knows a great deal about the Band.
Ile has had an opportunity to play in
'tSousa's Naval Training Band" but
rejected the offer. His pep and interest
has made for us
a most useful High

Students Co-Operative Exchange
BY LESLIE LARSON
The Students' Co-Operative Exchange
of the Fort Dodge High School was
organized two years ago. The corpora-
tion filed corporation papers with Mr.
Blakely, Principal of the High School.
The capital stock of the corporation, at
the time of its incorporation, was Twenty-
Five Dollars. The corporation is operated
in a businesslike. manner, as each mem-
ber has a certain thing to do. A set of
books is kept by one of the members,
while the teacher at the head of the Com-
mercial Department acts as Auditor.
The corporation thus far has been a
great success, not only to the st-ockholders
but also to the students of the school.
The stock, issued at one dollar per share
at par value, has increased two hundred-
fifty per cent. The condition under
which the corporation is allowed to do
business, is on a fifteen per cent com-
mission basis, two-thirds of which goes to
the corporation, and one-third of which
goes to the High School, for the right of
At the Des Moines Valley Tract Meet
of 1917 a very attractive directory and
score book was made and sold at a very
low price. The business men stood back
of us in making this an attractive book.
Another book will be made in 1918.
Refreshments were sold at the Track Meet
to those who wished to buy.
The corporation is a great convenience
to the Students of the School in the Way
of buying and selling second hand books,
as the pupils can get the books at a
greatly reduced cost. This is the pur-
pose for which the: corporation was
organized. It also gives excellent busi-
ness experience to the stockholders.
A complete report is made to the High
School at the end of each school year.
The officers of the Students' Co-Oper-
ative Exchange for the year 1917-18
were: President, Leslie Larsong General
Manager, Emerson Dawson, Treasurer,
James Carver, Secretary, Cabell Johnson.

Ames Judging Contest
A new honor has come to the Fort
Dodge High School. The Agriculture
students won a Loving Cup in a judging
contest held at Ames. There were forty
schools represented at this contest, which
was held to arouse interest in agricul-
tural pursuits, especially in farm crops
and animal husbandry.
ln the judging contest Fort Dodge
won the cup, which was given by the
Iowa Agricultural Educational Associa-
tion for the highest placing of clover.
The Fort Dodge teain's placing of other
farm crops was very good considering
the fact that most of the boys of the
other schools were reared upon farms
while only one of the Fort Dodge boys
lived upon a farm.
The boys had had very little training
in judging before going to Ames, but
their daily training in Agriculture show-
ed that they had ability along this line.
The Fort Dodge team consisted of

Social affairs in the Fort Dodge High
School this year have been few and far
between. The war, no doubt, has had a
great deal to do with this. However, the
members of the faculty are doing their
Ubitv to keep Fort Dodge High School
on the social calendar, with the same
"Zip" and "pep" with which they ply
the knitting needles after school hours.
Of course the refreshments at social func-
tions are- always in keeping with the
desires of Mr. Hoover. This is an explicit
rule and is rigidly adhered to.
The twenty-second of September Mr.
and Mrs. Blakely entertained the mem-
bers of the faculty at their home. The
affair served as an introduction to the
new members of the faculty and as a fare-
well to Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Townsend, who
left soon afterward for Wabash College,
where Mr. Towsend is coaching Athletics
this year. All the new members were
required to perform. This was enjoyed
a great deal, especially so was the solo
rendered by Mr. Collins. A poem com-
posed and read by Mr. Waters and Mr.
Maakestad was very amusing. The guests
left, after a very enjoyable evening and
unanimously voted Mr. and Mrs. Blakely
Miss 'Winter and Miss Buxbaum enter-
tained at a delightful party this Fall for
Miss Schmidt, a former member of the
Last Spring the faculty entertained at
the Club Cafe for Miss Williams who
resigned from the faculty and this year
is studying at the Chicago University.
A decidedly different affair the faculty
enjoyed this year was a progressive call-
ing party, which was brought to a pleas-
ant conclusion at Welch's where Hoov-
erized refreshments were served.
April thirteenth the faculty enter-
tained for Miss Olney who left April
fifteenth for Washington to take up her
duties with the Government. Toasts
given by all the guests were very original
and clever. The party from beginning
to end was delightful. I
So endeth the social activities of the
The annual all High School HalloWe'en
Masquerade, which was held in the
Armory was a decided success. The many
and varied designs of the costumes caus-
ed much interest and amusement. A very
clever program was carried out by
talented high school boys.
The decorations were in keeping with
the season and added much to the spirit
of the party. The money raised, by
charging a -small fee was devoted to the
purchasing of a Liberty Bond for the
school. In all, the party was a great suc-
cess, and was enjoyed immensely by the
faculty as well as the students.
The social activities of the separate
classes are limited to say the least.
The Seniors were the only ones who
attempted and successfully gave even one
party this year.
On November fifteenth, the hospitality
of the Rutledge home was again taken
advantage of, when the members of the
Senior Class drove out to the Rutledge
farm, in bob sleds. It was a cold, crisp
November evening, ideal for sleigh riding.
When the hilarious crowd arrived at the
farm a delightful dinner was served after
which games were played with a vim and
vigor that could hardly be excelled by
our "peppery" Freshmen.

The last Senior party of the' year was a
banquet, observing all food regulations.
It took place in the dining room of the
Methodist Church at six o'clock, Friday
evening, April twenty-sixth. A series of
very clever farces were put on by differ-
ent members of the class. These were
original and entertaining. In fact, this
party was probably the most successful
party the Senior class gave in the history
of the high school career and a fitting
close to Senior social frolics.
A few socially inclined Juniors twice
attempted to work up enthusiasm and
funds enough to entertain this year, but
their heroic efforts were unsuccessful.
However, the third time is the charm so
Cheer up! Juniors!
The Sophs are still hovering on the
social brink. Nothing has come to light
concerning their social aspirations.
As for the Freshmen with such unsocial
elders what could be expected? No one
seems to know of their ambitions.
'17 Junior and Senior Reception
The Junior-Senior reception which was
held last Spring in the Commercial Club
Rooms was decided unique.
It had always been taken for granted
when planning these receptions that an
elaborate dinner was necessary for the
happiness of the departing Seniors. How-
ever, last year, co-operating with the Con-
servation Movement, light refreshments
were served, and a more elaborate pro-
gram was presented. Tho' this plan
required more ingenuity the Juniors
proved themselves to be very original and
gave a most enjoyable reception.
The guests arrived at seven-thirty.
After the grand march, led by Mr. and
Mrs. Blakely, several selections were
rendered by the Orchestra under the
direction of Mrs. Carmichael.
The setting was strictly Japanese, on
entering the scene one f'elt transplanted
to a miniature Japanese garden. Arbors
everywhere were covered with Chrysang
themums and Wisteria. A small Japan-
ese stage, erected in one corner of the
hall, added to the atmosphere of the far
Under classmen dressed as Japanese,
served typically Japanese refreshments,
and miniature Japanese lanterns, painted
by Junior girls, made charming programs.

'18 Junior-Senior Reception
Given by Class of '19, The Reception
given by the Juniors to the Seniors was
so very successful that it far surpassed all
other receptions by which the Juniors
are accustomed to honor the Seniors.
The party took place at the Congrega-
tional Church on Friday, May third. As
all class affairs this year, it was cele-
brated patriotically. Covers were laid
for 188 guests, which included members
of the two classes, the faculty, members
of the school board and their wives.
At six-thirty the guests sat down to a
delicious dinner. The tables were effec-
tively decorated with red, white and blue
streamers, flags of the Allied Nations,
and a miniature toy ship was used as a
center-piece on each table. The Menu
a11d the program for the evening were
combined in attractive booklets on which
smalPred. white and blue ships were
painted. On each booklet was the name
of a guest, so that they served as place
cards also. 'l
At intervals during the evening music
by the High School Orchestra was
The Junior Class President, Fred Beis-
ser, gave a short talk wishing the Seniors
bon voyage. The Senior Class President,
Harold Gibson, turned the Key of Knowl-
edge over to the Juniors.
The feature of the evening was a play
called "Over Here" given by the Juniors.
This play, which portrayed America 's
three war periods, the Revolutionary, the
Civil, and the Present, was written by
Elizabeth Healy and worked out by the
Program Committee composed of Char-
lotte Wilson, Stanton Faville and Flor-
The scenes of each period were accur-
ately shown, and costumes in keeping
with the different periods were worn.

"Gee, how stuffy this room isli' "Letls

floated in on the warm spring air, but
still "Stub" Kayne sat at his desk in

It was long after school hours, but
"Stub7' felt that his year As grade in Geo-
mletry depended on that one problem. It
was a problem commonly termed a
"sticker." No one else in the -class had
been able to solve it and Stub felt that
if he could work that problem his grade
would be secure.
Then a happy thought came to him.
Gladys Carson, in the other class had
worked that problem. He had seen her
bring it in after school and lay it on the
teaeher's desk. There it remained, free
for the taking, and "Stubs" grade would
be assured. Half-way down the aisle he
paused, "Is this treating Miss G ......
fairly?" he asked himself. "Is this treat-
ing myself-fairly?" Two long minutes
he stood, struggling with himself. It
would be so easy to look on that paper.
gain the general idea, and then work it
out himself. But what was the matter
with him now? Many a time before he
had copied flrom another's paper or
looked in his book for solutions. But this
time it was different. His Very gradua-
tion depended on this one problem. But
it was up to him, and up to him alone.
Thus reasoning with himself he
resumed his seat and tried to concentrate
on his work. But his thoughts would not
comes. the athletic field was summoning
him, that paper was urging him, out-
doors was calling him, everything but his
work drew his attention.
Hastily gathering up his papers, he fled
from the room. He jerked his cap from
his locker and hastily left the building.
Turning in the opposite direction from
the athletic field he resolutely walked
homeward. He would show Miss G. . .
that he could work geometry.
Reaching home he flung his cap on a
hook, sat down at the writing desk and
once more was at work. The short brisk
walk had refreshed him, the sacrificing
of pleasure made him determined and at
supper time he had advanced several
steps, toward the solution of the problem.
It was a very thoughtful boy who ate -sup-
per that night. Immediately after eat-
ing he was again at the desk working.
At half past six the phone rang.
Answering it, "Stub" heard his chum's
voice saying, "That you Stub? There's a
swell show at the Majestic tonight. Doug.
Fair ...... ."
"Nope! can't go, gotta work!" was all
the astonished boy at the other end of
the wire heard as the receiver clicked
Douglas Fairbanks was "Stubs" fav-
orite movie star but "work before pleas-
ure" this time. With fresh determina-
tion he again tackled the problem and in
fifteen minutes the answer was as clear
as day. With a shout he announced the
joyful results to the family and then,
tired out, he dragged himself upstairs to
a bath and bed.
Four weeks later the annual Des
Valley Track Meet W a s t a k i n g
place. North Des Moines was leading
Fort Dodge by one point. If "Stub"
could win the meet. It was the last lap.
"Stub" was dead tired. A North High
man was leading "Stub" by five yards.
The other runners were behind. It seemed
impossible to make up those five yards.
His feet fell in post-holes, his throat
burned, his muscles ached. It would be
so easy to slacken up just a little bit, and
so restful. But Fort Dodge must win.
Suddenly he remembered that Geometry
problem. He had conquered that. He
could also conquer this North High run-
ner. So instead of slaekenmg up, he let
out just another notch. He turned sick,
his brain reeled, but he passed his man,
and amidst tremendous applause from the
bleachers, broke the tape, and also the
meet record for the mile run.
The next spring after graduation
"Stub" was "Somewhere in France"
serving with an American machine gun
division. He was 011 outpost duty in No
Man's Land. The dawn was just break-
ing, casting ever shortening shadows
over the landscape. That morning his
division was to be replaced by a division
fresh from the training camps of America.
'tStub's" heart rejoiced at the vision of
two weeks at reserve billets and then rest
Suddenly his reflections were broken
by a dull, grey mist rising from the direc-
tion of the Boche trenches. "Gas!" ex-
claimed his companion, hastily adjusting
his gas mask. "Stub" blew three short
blasts on his whistle to warn those in the
trenches of the impending attack and
then hastily adjusted his own mask.
Behind him he could hear the Whistles
of the officers as they directed their men,
and the rattle of arms as they prepared
for the attack. Ahead the cloud grew in
proportion until it hid the sky and then
enveloped everything- He immediately
started firing his machine gun for some-
where behind that gas the Germans
would surely be advancing. He could
hear the bursting of the shells around him
and could distinguish the German bar-
rage. Then the American artillery
opened, throwing its huge charges of
death into the German trenches and into
"No Man's Land." Behind him the
sputtering of machine guns told him his
companions were pouring a perfect storm
of shot into the Germans. His own gun
was firing incessantly.
Suddenly the gun stopped, a shell had
clogged the breech. He opened the
breech, grabbed a wrench and tugged at
the cartridge, but to no avail. The shell
refused to move. "Tighter'n a clam," he
exclaimed, and turned to ask his compan-
ion to help him. He was surprised to
find him fallen on his face, dead.
A cold unreasoning fear clutched at
"Stub's" heart. Alone and defenseless
in "No Man's Land." Should he desert
that important post, one of those feelers
of the army, so essential in modern War-
fare, but so dangerous. His excuse was
valid. How he longed for the comforts
of home, and the joys of his school days.
Then came the thought of that Geometry
Hstickern and that track meet. Con-
quering his fear he turned to his gun,
and with almost super-human effort, tore
the shell from the barrel, closed the
breech, and once more was firing through

Are you really helping to do your bit
In this war, this terrible fight?
Are you willing to -sacrifice so-me things
That your country may win in the right?
Think of our men, our splendid boys
Who are fighting for you "over there."
They are willing to die, to give their lives
They are not afraid to dare.
Over the trench in the 'midst of the fight
Our khaki-clad soldiers go,
'Midst shrieking shrapnels and flying
They are driving back the foe.
Are our boys holding back and trembling
As they hear the noise of the guns?
No! they are ready to do their part
No matter what end may come.
On they go, what a glorious sight?
Will defeat come to such as these?
After them men, you are in the right,
Tho' the Kaiser you may not please.
Such scenes as these are a common sight
To your soldier far away,
And tho' you cannot go over to fight
You may help right now-today.
So show your colors, my worthy friends,
And do just all that you can.
Some may knit and others may sew,
All helping our Uncle Sam.
Don 't be a "slacker," hurry up!

Bob awoke Thursday morning with a
sinking feeling in his heart. Not that
anything serious was the matter with his
heart, it was just that today was Thurs-
day, and Thursday was the day he was
"to do or die." Of course if he were a
grade kid, he could "play sick" and stay
home from school, but now that he was in
High School it would never do to play
grade school tricks. Besides Dad told
him to be sportsmanlike! And one
couldn't be sportsmanlike playing sick.
'Well, since it had to be done, one
might as well brace up to it.

could begin wearing long pants next

pants make a fellow look so much like a

so punished? What had the teachers
against him? Well, perhaps it W3.S an

The reader must have guessed that Bob
was going to be initiated into the mys-
teries of addressing the Assembly at thc
regular Thursday afternoon program.
After many hours of suspense and
fruitless hopes that the school would
burn down, or that someone might dis-
cover that this was a holiday, Bob entered
the Assembly and took his regular Music
seat with his "do or die" expression.
As usual music was the first part of the
program and although Bob had Iormerly
thought that music was the best part of
Thursday, now he realized that it was
merely a "play for time." Then after
innumerable unnecessary announcements
the Principal said:
"I have the great honor to introduce
to the Assembly, a speaker who is now
making his first appearance, and who
will speak on a subject in which you are
all interested-Robert Weston."
If Bob were asked later to tell what
happened during the next few minutes,
he would likely touch a sore spot on his
side and say-
"I had to get out of my seat-for Jim
pushed me. It really wasn't as bad as I
had expected, and the Principal said I did
very well,-for a Freshman."

The Last Meeting
BY LAVON 0'BRIEN
School had been writing invitations all
day. She had decided to have a family
reunion. The invitations were to be sent
to all her subjects, the Studies. It was
almost time for the summer rest, and they
would not see each other for a long time
as Pupil never glanced at them when he
was not required to.
University and College came to see her
that night. Their daughter, Kindergar-
ten, was also with them. Kindergarten
soon spied the invitations, which were
still packed on School's desk. "Schoolie,
I want one," she cried.
Then of course School had to explain
her plan. She politely informed Uni-
versity and College that they were not
invited. She was not to blame however,
as University was a large woman whose
special art was fault-finding, while Col-
lege was a man who thought no man as
wise as he. Kindergarten however, was
told to be sure and come.
The next day School gave the invita-
tions to the postman who dutifully deliv-
ered them. Then she received the replies.
All were coming except Miss Domestic
Science and Mr. Manual Training, who
were in love, and wished to spend the last
evening in each other's company.
At last the eagerly-looked for night
arrived. School had decorated her home,
the High, with many beautifully colored
report cards, examination papefrs, and
yellow notes. '
"We are all here, here at last laugh-

the hall in a dress as white as snow.
Behind her trooped the rest. School's
eyes brightened, for she loved these
friends of hers.
"Help me to save these people!"
exclaimed Miss English, a tall, slender
woman, with a large mouth from which
often appeared two rows of pearl white
teeth. "Why School, dearie, Mr. Short-
hand has said 'ain't' five times tonight
and Miss Design talks as if-but then, I
must not criticize."
Then entere'd Mr. Bookkeeper, Auntie
Science with Uncle Civics, Willy Latin

with his cousins, Jack French, Ish Span,
and Nellie German, and the rest of the
Studies. Last of all came small dainty
Marie Music. She was gayly singing,
"When Algebra Joins the War."
Then the good time began. After sev-
eral songs had been sung. Father Physics
gave a short lecture. Farmer Botany
then gave a demonstration on the grow-
ing of wisdom. This was very humorous
and was enjoyed by all.
After this a lunch was served. Five
minutes later they were all listening to
the chimes when the lights went out. All
was silent, when suddenly a queer noise
was heard. It was the low, rustling sound
of a silk skirt. All eyes were searching
the door. Then footsteps became audible,
the knob turned, a few seconds of terrify-
ing silence, and then "It" entered.
HA ghost," was the first impression
but at a second glance no one would
associate that sad. yet gay, intelligent
face with that of a ghost. As it was
School 's party she felt the need of action.
"Who are you?', she demanded.
The strange creature turned, stared at
the crowd and then sadly shook its head.
HI?" she questioned in a voice which
sounded strangely familiar. "Whatl
Have you forgotten me so soon? Well, I
hunger for revenge and here is my
chance. Oh! It fills me with Joy. For
three whole months I will keep you hid
from the world."
No one could mistake that voice. If
Pupil had been present he would have
said, "Chl Vacation, I love you. You
are welcome and I want you to stay."
The Studies however, glanced at feach
other in sadness. They knew they must
"Hurry, I have but three more minutes.
Make haste, if farewells, you must have."
The Studies -hurriedly bid each other fare-
well and prepared to go wherever Vaca-
tion wished to hide them. In three
minutes the Studies had disappeared,
School was forgotten and Vacation

1917 Football Season
Coach Frank H. Waters comes to Fort
Dodge High with an enviable reputation
both as an athlete and a scholar. He is
a graduate of Oberlin College, where for
four years he performed on the gridiron,
developing into one of the greatest ends
ever produced in the west. In 1904 and
1905 he was handicapped by weak teams,
but in 1906 he was elected captain of the
team, and was unanimously selected for
the Ohio All-State Team. He was re-
elected captain again in 1907, the only
man ever given this honor twice at the
Ohio School. Mr. Waters also played two
years of basketball, and four years of
baseball, graduating with ten numerals to
his credit, a wonderful achievement.
The fall of 1908 he coached the Erie,
Pennsylvania, High School, and then
accepted a position at Algona, Iowa, as
instructor and coach. In 1910 he went
to Fort Collins, Colorado, High School,
where his coaching was unusually suc-
cessful. He turned out a state champion-
ship track team, making records which
have yet to be beaten. His football teams
were also successful, winning the district
championship. In 1912 he went to Minot,
North Dakota, where he turned out many
good football and basketball teams,
although handicapped by poor material.
Last fall he came here as coach of all
athletics and already his work has been
apparent. Despite various trials he
turned out a fighting football team, and
his basketball team one of the best in
the state. It set a precedent for future
te-ams by running up a string of ten
Within the next year or so we con-
fidently predict that Coach Waters will
develop some of the greatest athletes and
teams seen in Iowa interscholastic circles,
and will win back to Fort Dodge her
wonderful athletic reputation.
Review of the 1917 Football Season
At the beginning of the 1917 season,
Coaches Waters and Taylor faced a form-
idable task, They had only two letter
men back as a nucleus for the team, and
the material at hand was scarce, and very
light. That they finally forged a team
that gave West High a hard fight, held
Algona's Veteran aggregation to a tie,
and, after Sioux City's ponderous
machine had crossed their goal line three
times, came back and completely out-
played them in the second half, is indeed
to their credit.
The team opened the season at Iowa
Falls, Although the Fort Dodge team out-
played their opponents, and up to the last
few seconds held the lead, Iowa Falls,
managed to slip over the tieing score as
the whistle blew.
The second game was played at Eagle
Grove and was a ragged exhibition. The
Dodgers finally pushed over a lone touch-
down for the only tally of the game. John
Brown, the giant tackle, was lost to the
team for the season by a dislocated ankle.
This weakened the line to a great extent.
The following Saturday the team met
Webster City there and defeated them 25
to 6, in a game of good and bad football.
The first home game' was with Ida
Grove, one of the "ancient rivals" and it
proved the first defeat ever inflicted on
the Duncombe field since its construction.
Handicapped by the loss of three injured
regulars, the Red and Black fell, to the
tune of 18 to 0.
The following week West Des Moines
came up to trample on the home team,

but with one of the greatest exhibitions of
fight and gameness, the Dodgers held
them to a seore of 28 to 0.
Vherokee was next, also at home, and
they proeeeded to depart with the loeal
sealp, by a seore of 13 to 0. Next week
Algona was held to a 0 to O score in a well-
played, hard-fought battle.
'l'he last game of the season on Thanks-
giving Day, was very disappointing. The
weight and speed of the Sioux City High
team enabled them to seore three times
the first period, while Voughlin, in a sev-
enty-five yard ru11 from the kiekoff, put
aeross the only score of the loeals. 'l'he
second half, the team elearly out-played
the visitors but the game ended 21 to 6.
'l'he season offieially ended with the
annual banquet of the first and second
teams, and alumni letter men. Following

was not as good as last year, but on the defense he ranked with greatest ends

CAPTAIN-ELECT MARION DOUGLAS Guard, ll9.
Although one of the lightest men on the squad, UDug's" ability to break
through and throw the opposing team back for big losses, and his aggressive-
ness at all times marked him as a star for next year. He should make a
wonderful leader for 'l8's Champ. Team.
CHARLES COUGHLIN, Quarter-back, 'l8.
"Chucks" handling of the team was at all times a big factor in its work.
His forward passing was swift and accurate, and his speed and shiftiness in
the open field, enabled him to reel off many long gains.

JAMES CARVER, Guard, '18,
Although it was his first year of Varsity Football, "Jimmy" played like
a veteran. He was one of the most aggressive men on the team, and only a
badly injured shoulder kept him from receiving higher recognition.
FRANK FORD, Center, '19,
Frank in his first year ot' football, played a steady and a powerful game
at the pivot position. His work in the Algona and Ida Grove games, was
good, in fact, often brilliant. He will make a great player next year.
HAROLD GIBSON, Right Tackle, '18,
Shifted from half-back to Righ Tackle, "Gibby" added Wonderfully to
the line. He was a bear-eat on opening holes, and a sure and swift tackler.
Honorable mention on All-State Team.
JOHN BIQOWN, Tackle, fie.
"Browny's" old Nemesis followed him again this year, and he was
injured in the second game of the season, incapaeitating him for the rest of
the year. His loss was a severe one, for he was a tackle of Smith 's calibre.
ALLEN DELANO, Guard, '18,
"Lonzo" played hard, consistent football throughout the season.
His Work in the Algona game, both on the offensive and defensive, was of the
highest standard. It will take a mighty good man to fill his shoes.

GEORGE THOMPSON, Quarter Back, l2O.

Tullar was the fastest man on the team. lle was always the first man

1918 Basket Ball Season
The 1918 basketball team was one of the
greatest ever turned out at Fort Dodge,
although for the first time in the history
of the event, the team failed to qualify
for the state tournament.
The season opened with only two letter
men in school, and prospects were far
from bright. Waters took hold at once,
however, and with men weighing an aver-
age of only 145 pounds, he won the North-
west Championship, and The Boone Val-
ely League cup. The season opened at
home with Spirit Lake and resulted in an
easy victory, 39 to 19. From- then to the
Boone game at Boone was an unbroken
string of victories, including two over
Goldfield and two over Sioux City. The
game with Goldfield on their own floor
was a hard-fought battle, but the Dodgers
finally Won 27 to 25. Mason City's
elongated team gave them a great battle
the following night at home and only suc-
cumbed after a gruelling contest, 28 to
23. The Boone Valley League
teams offered little c o m p e tit io n
with the exception of Croldfield. Sioux
City came the following week and fell, 37
to 10, in an easy battle. Algona, Gold-
field, and Eagle Grove proved easy and
the victories over them clinched the cup.
On February 15th Sioux City was con-
quered 27 to 13 in one of the dirtiest
games ever played in Sioux City. Evi-
dently the five years of unbroken vic-
tories over them has begun to be felt
there. Yost was badly injured in this
game, and was lost to the team for the rest
of the season. This was a hard blow, for
his work was of the highest order. Chero-
kee fell on the home trip, in a fairly good
game. The victory over Algona on the
22d ran the Dodgers string of victories
up to ten but the following night the first
game was lost on the Boone High floor, in
a very close game, 18 to 13. On March 2d
Fort Dodge met Omaha Central in the
biggest game of the season, and lost by
exactly the same score of the preceding
year, 22 to 24. The Omaha team was one
of the greatest ever seen in action on a
The next week the team left for Ames.
and, with some sensational basket-
ball, conquered Rockwell City, Nevada,
and Council Bluffs in succession, and only
lost in the finals to Goldfield, a team
which they had twice before beaten.
The team 's record stands with those of
preceeding years, with a standing of 13
victories out of 16 games played for a
percentage of .816 for the season.

Junior Basket Ball
Although the Juniors failed to cop the rag, as it
were. yet, in the words of Caesar, "they came, they
saw, and they were trimmed."
The star of the Junior team, if they had a star,
must have been the elongated center, Minty by name.
His work was consistent in every game, especially in
basket shooting. At guards, "Bugs" Drake, that
sterling young athlete, and Cap. Douglas of the
gridiron, performed in a very pleasing manner.
"Fred" Gertner, Mitchell and Radcliffe took care of
the forward positions, and managed to shoot several
baskets during the series. Gertner covered the floor ,
in most of the games, in fact, he seemed to have con-
siderable trouble in staying on his feet. We look
with certainty to the Junior team as next year's
champions, as they are a team that constantly im-
prove as time passes.
Senior Basket Ball
The Seniors won the class Champ, for the
first time since they came into school, which shows
that perseverence overcomes obstacles.
About nine-tenths of said Champs consisted of one
Charles Pitsor, although it would not be fair to over-
look Con Davis. Pitsor at running guard, shot most
of the baskets and covered the flcor in really won-
Carver at the other guard put up a nice game.
Davis at forward proved one of the bright stars
uncovered by the series of games. De Lano played
the center position in fine style, covering the floor
well and usually securing the touch-off. Harrison
and McCarty played good, consistant ball all
through the series.
The team lost only one game in the entire series,
that to the Sophomores, and revenged themselves for
that by trouncing them in the next two games.
TOP ROW: Mitchell, Minty, Radcliffe.
BOTTOM ROW: Douglas, Drake, Gertner.

Sophomore Basket Ball
The Sophomore Team began their season auspi-
ciously by defeating the Seniors by only one point,
in a hard fought battle. Of course it was hardly
fair, as they had six men on the floor at the time.
Paige at forward was one of the smallest men in the
tourney, but his work featured every game. He prob-
ably scored the most points, with the exception of
Pitsor, of any one man. Ketcham at the other for-
ward was a good, aggressive player, and managed
to slip the ball through the ring in nearly every
game. Carter should make a varsity man before he
graduates. At the other guard, Slocum played a fine
game and managed to hold the majority of his op-
ponents to a low score.
The loss of Thompson and Cook to the first and
second squads respectively, spelled defeat, and the
Sophomores took second place in the tourney.
TOP RONV: Paige, Cook, Thompson, Carter.
BOTTOM ROW: Ketcham, Toay.
Freshmen Basket Ball
The Freshmen were not successful in winning the
class basketball championship this year but to see
what kind of a team they had you will only have to
consult the scores.
Steinberg played a good game at his forward posi-
tion. His ability at dribbling and basket shooting
was amazing to every one. Connors at center
played his position very well, securing the touch-off
in practically every game. His defensive work was
the best of anyone playing on a class team.
The Eilers "Cussins" at guard, despite their small
size, featured every game by their aggressive guard-
ing, and their ability to shoot down the floor for a
tally every now and tdhen. Mulmed and Rubenstein
both played good basketball when given the oppor-
tunity, and at least showed they were good material
for future years.

The track season of 1917 was one of the
most successful in the history of Fort
Dodge athletics. Opening with the Drake
Relays at Des Moines, at which the two-
mile team secured first place, and ending
with the annual Class Meet, unusual
interest was displayed by the entire stud-
ent body. Although Fort Dodge failed
to win the meets entered, the Red and
Black was runner up in the Des Moines
Valley and Boone Valley Classics. The
Des Moines Valley Meet, the annual local
invitation meet, was one of the biggest
and best ever held in the entire state.
Eight records were broken and three tied
in this meet, and it was closely contested
throughout. North Des Moines won, but

The results of the 1918 track season, up
to the time the Dodger goes to press, have
been very good, although the squad is
ba dly handicapped by the lack of
material, and a consequent loss of the
places necessary to win track meets. This
was evident at the meet at Mason City,
which they won only through garnering
more seconds and thirds than the local
The track season opened with the
Ninth Annual Drake Relay at Des
Moines. C85 Eight men were taken, Cap-
tain Clark, Cook, Albright, Gibson, Monk,
Mulmed, Reece and Tullar, under Coaches
Waters and Hinman. For the fourth suc-
cessive year, Fort Dodge won a first place
in these relays, taking the Medal from
nine competitors. This is the second
year in which the local teams have been
the only school outside Des Moines to
secure a first, a remarkable record. They
also secured fourth in the shuttle and
half-mile relays, and would have won a
place in the latter but for a mistake by
one of the runners.
A week later Coach Watens took five
men, Clark, Gibson, Tullar, Reece and
Monk, to the annual Simpson College
meet, at Indianola. Fort Dodge took
third place at this meet with 22 1-3 points,
and brought home seven medals, two
banners and four cups as reward for her
work. The points were distributed as
follows: Clark, fourth, 100 yard Dash,
third, Discus, third, 220 yard Dash, Tul-
lar, se-cond, low hurdles, second, high
hurdles, Monk, first, Mile Run, and first
in the half-mile relay with Gibson as
On May 3rd the track team journeyed to
Mason City for the annual Boone Valley
Meet, and took second with 43 5-6 points.
Mason City won the meet with 5615
counters, leaving some 25 points to be dis-
tributed among the remaining teams that
participated. The contest was, indeed,
more of a dual meet between Fort Dodge
and Mason City, with the latter winner,
more from a plethora of men than any
other reason, as out of fourteen events,
Fort Dodge won first in seven and Mason
City first in six. Thus the winner was
determined by 'seconds and thirds. The
class of the meet can be realized when
it is known that six records were broken,
and one tied, and that this was the thir-
teenth year of competetion. Records were
established in the 220-yard Dash, low
hurdles, high hurdles, half mile run,
half mile relay, and mile relay. Fort
Dodge's points were made by, Brown,
first, Shot-Put, Tullar, third, low hurdles,
third, high , hurdles, tie first in high
jump, tie for first in pole vault, and tie
for third in broad jump, Rankin, tie for
first in Pole Vault, Clark, first in 100-
yard Dash, first in 220-yard Dash, Reece
third in Mile, Monk, first, mile run, first,
half mile run. The new records set by
the locals were: Clark 220-yard Dash,
22 3-5, Monk, Half Mile, 2:07. Clark also
tied the 100-yard Dash in 10 2-5.
May 11 will see the third annual Des
Moines Valley Meet at Fort Dodge. This
will be the closest and best meet in years,
as over sixteen schools and ninety individ-
ual entries are in. These include North
Des Moines, Mason City and Fort Dodge,
and the meet seems to lie between these
three teams, with North High the favorite.
They have already won one leg on the
mammoth cup given to the winner, and
are anxious to secure another.
Following the Des Moines Valley comes
the State Meet, which will be held in con-
junction with the Intercollegiate Meet in
the Drake Stadium, May 18. Fort Dodge
should make the best record in her history
at this meet, and close one of her most
successful track seasons with glory.

The 1917-18 school year marked an in-
novation in the high school curriculum,
by the addition of a Department of Phy-
sical Education under the control of
Physical Director Strong Hinman. Gym-
nasium vvork became an accredited and
compulsory subject for all boys in school.
Before the work actually began, each boy
was subjected to an exhaustive physical
examination, to discover and remedy any
defects in his system.
The boys were divided into classes
and required to take two hours of gym-
nasium Work each Week. This included
marching, calisthenics, apparatus Work,
and games. The aim of these exercises
is to ' correct faulty postures, and
develop the muscles to secure an all-round
development of the body. The results of
this work is already apparent in the
change and improvement in carriage of
the boys of the high school.
At the beginning of the year, Mr. Hin-
man selected a group of boys in each
class to lead squads in' the drill and
apparatus Work. These squad leaders
Formed the Leaders Corps and once a
week met to take special instruction for
On April 11-12, the first annual boys'
gymnasium exhibition was held at the
armory. The various period classes
went through their drills and games, and
the exhibition ended with a dance by
the Leaders' Corps. The result of the
first year's Work in this line was certainly
pleasing, and the pupils went through
their work in a smooth, trained Way that
evoked highest commendation from all
who witnessed their performance.

Girls' Athletics have met with much
enthusiasm in the Fort Dodge High School
for the last three years. For two years
Miss Maude O'Neill has been the direc-
tor and much credit is due to her for
bringing the girls into the spirit of the
work. A.s a result of this activity a num-
ber of different courses were taken up
this year such as the May Fete, Flag
Drill, Gymnasium, Hockey, and some
The lhay Fete this year was held the
twentieth of May at the Duncombe Ath-
letic Field and was much larger than the
one held last year. Two thousand pupils
from the grade schools and three hundred
high school girls took part in this pageant.
There were nine Maypoles wound by the
grade school pupils and one large one was
wound by sixty high school girls and
boys. The principal event of the Fete
was the Dance of the Allies by the high
school girls. This dance included the
Highland Flingg Joan of Ark, The Taren-
tella, Belgian Folk Dance, Sailors Horn-
pipe and'Columbia. All of these dances
were in costume. The girls in the High-
land Fling wore a silver coat of mail. In
the Tarentella, the Italian dance, the
girls used Tambourines, and took the part
of the Italian type very well. In the Bel-
gian Folk Dance, the costumes were of a
simple, peasant type. Middy blouses,
white cap and bloomers made up the
costume in the Sailor's Hornpipe.
At the beginning of the pageant there
was a parade around the field. in which
every person in the Fete took part. There
were several dances and drills given by
the grade school pupils and all of them
were in costume. The Fort Dodge Band
furnished the music and the Fete was
very well attended and a real success in

Calisthenics, Swedish gymnastics, Folk
and Aesthetic Dancing and Marching
Tactics were all taken up. An advanced
class has been held on Wednesday nights
from four until six every Week and this
has been open to the girls of the upper
classes. There have been sixty girls
enrolled in this class and they were
drilled only in Aesthetic Dancing and
Technique work. '
An 'exhibition was held in the Armory
the first week in April on Thurs-
day and Friday ev enings. The
High School Band furnished music, mak-
ing its first public appearance. First
in the program was the formal gymnas-
tics and the flag salute. Then there were
Folk Dances and the Flag Drill and it
made a very effective appearance. The
Clown Dance was very comical. About
sixteen girls participated and dressed in
gaily colored Yama Yama suits. Florence
Edwards represented Columbia. In her
dance she was accompanied by Mr. L. G.
Collins, who sang i'Your Flag and My
Flagf' Following Columbia were her
helpers who appeared in appropriate cos-
tumes, each group giving a different
dance. Among Columbia's Helpers were
the Sailors, Nurses, Soldiers, Iowans,
Southern Girls, and Yankees. It was a
very successful exhibition and was very
well attended both evenings. -
Everyone who went out for hockey this
year went out with the kind of spirit that
is bound to bring good results. The
games were hard fought contests and the
final scores show the results of the Work
on all sides.
Junior-Seniors ........ . . . 0-0
Freshmen-Sophmore . . . . . . 0-0
Sophmore-Junior ................. 1-1
Senior-Sophmore ................. 1-1
In the spring the girls took up track
work on the same field that was used for
hockey. There was sprinting, broad-
jumping, relay races, and distance throw-
ing. This form of athletics was new for
the girls and they were very enthusiastic
over it. A hare and hound race was held
late in the school year.

The Flag Drill was given at the Iowa
State Teachers Convention at the
Coliseum in Des Moines, November First.
Different schools and representatives
from Colleges from all parts of the State
took part in the program. Fort Dodge
High School was represented by sixteen
girls, Marjorie McQuilkin, Asenath Dor-
sey, Pauline Breen, Mary Ford, Eleanor
Mulroney, Elizabeth Healy, Annetta
Schroeder, Catherine McCann, Helen
Halfpap, Florence Edwards, Estella Jose-
lyn, Miriam Reynolds, Evadne Isaacson,
Agnes Jorgensen, Lucile Van Horn, and
Norma Wolcott, who won much applause
when they presented the Flag Drill. The
girls wore a uniform style of costume and
each one carried two silk flags. They
marched in to a military tune and formed
four rows. The drill was patriotic
throughout and consisted of interpreta-
tions of rowing and paddling. Much
credit for the success of the drill, not only
for the excellent training the girls receiv-
ed, but also for the original character of
the drill, is due to Miss Maude 0'Neill.
While in Des Moines the girls were
taken out to Camp Dodge. They were
there long enough to see most all of the
important buildings, including the kitchen
which they went through while mess was
being prepared. Before tuey left they
gave some of the High School yells and
a number of people standing around
joined in with them. All or the girls
enjoyed the trip very much.
May Fete 1917
The May Fete of 1917 was held at the
Duncombe Athletic Field. All of the
grades of the Public Schools and the
High School took part in this event. After
the grand march of all the school stud-
ents tl1e American flag was presented by
a flag bearer attended by Washington,
Lincoln and Woodrow Wilson and fol-
lowers. Then all the grade and High
School students gave the flag salute,
"I give my head, my heart, and my hands
to God and my country, one nation, one
language, one flag."
The High School girls presented a
pageant. Florence Edwards took the part
of Summer. She was accompanied by
representation of different flowers such
as the roses, daisies, lilies, and for-get-me-
nots. Pauline Breen, dressed in brown,
represented Fall. She was followed by
the wood nymphs who were likewise
dressed in brown. Winter was repre-
sented by Helen Halfpap, appropriately
dressed in white, and followed by the
winter girls. Helen Bradley took the
part of a Blue Bird and heralded Lucile
Van Horn in the role of spring. Miss
Van Horn was followed by the Spring
Flowers. Summer is driven away by
Autumn and the wood nymphs. Autumn
is then forced to retreat by winter and her
followers. The dance of Winter and
those who accompanied her was inter-
rupted by the Bluebird, the herald of the
spring. The sleeping flowers and wood
nymphs then awaken and Spring has
come again. Other numbers were the
Flower Drill and the Wreath Drill. The
Girls in these drills were dressed in white
and the wreaths and streamers which
they carried were decorated with flowers.
Each grade building had a Maypole all
of which were wound at the same time.
Music was furnished by the Fort Dodge
Band. The setting for the Fete, the cos-
tumes and the balmy day, all helped to
make it the grand success that it was.

The high standard of Debate which has
always existed in the Fort Dodge High
School has not been lacking in this season
of 1918. The same spirit which has per-
vaded the Fort Dodge debaters was shown
to a greater extent than ever before by
the enthusiasm with which the student
body responded to the call of Coach
Brindley. At the preliminary which was
held early in November more than fifty
students competed for the sixteen places
on the squad.
The Triangular Debate with Sioux City
and Council Bluffs, which has been held
for nine consecutive years was scheduled
for February Fifteenth. Mary Ford,
James Carver and Ronald Harrison with
Frances Dolliver as captain, were chosen
to meet Sioux City on our home plat-
form. Once the fighting had begun they
found that their task was not as difficult
as they had anticipated, for they easily
overwhelmed the Sioux City debaters by
their responsive outbursts of eloquence
and magic power of oratory. Their sup-
erior manner of presentation, and the en-
thusiasm displayed by the audience help-
ed to win for them the unanimous vic-
tory of a 3-0 decision from the judges.
On the same evening while this team
was defending our home platform against
Sioux City, the debaters chosen to repre-
sent the school at Council Bluffs consist-
ing of Eugene Gustafson, Lawrence Reece,
Pauline Breen and Margaret Brady as
captain, were fighting with the same win-
ning spirit. They went to Council Bluffs
with the determination of defeating that
school which has been, for nine years, our
formidable enemy in debate. Their con-
structive case was clear and consistent
and they presented it in the forcible man-
ner which has always distinguished Fort
Dodge debaters. In their rebuttals, they
argued and they fought with untiring
perserverance in their efforts to convince
the judges, but to no avail. The two
teams were so evenly matched that the
decision would have been very dubious
had it not been for the unbounded pep
and school spirit displayed by the large
audience. As has been the case in former
years this enthusiasm proved too much
to fight against, for the Fates decided
against them. The decision of the judges
was 3-0 in favor of Council Bluffs.
The other two teams which were
chosen were forced to debate each other
for the schools, which have formerly par-
ticipated in this debate, were unwilling
longer to take chances on defeat. The
affirmative team consisted of Captain
Elizabeth Healy, Harold Gibson, Eleanor
Mulroney and Annetta Schroeder. The
negative team consisted of Robert Reed,
Captain, Cora Rutledge, Gertrude Meloy
and Elizabeth Monaghan. A sharp con-
test took place between these teams on
April 19, in the high school assembly. It
is certain that the spirit with which they
contested would have given an opposing
school a hard fight for victory. The
vim which they put into their work and
the true sportsmanship which they dis-
played made the debate one of the most
interesting ones ever held in the city. The
teams were so evenly matched that the
decision resulted in a divided vote of 2-1
in favor of the negative team.
In concluding this successful year of
debate the senior class unites with the
debaters in extending an appreciation to
Mr. Brindley of his invaluable services
as a coach and above all his splendid
sportsmanship. He has loyally stayed by
the teams both in victory and defeat.

It cannot be said that the Fort Dodge
High School has not done its part in
responding to the many war issues which
have been brought about by the present
crisis. At such a time as this everyone
must do more than "his bit" in helping
to win this war for Democracy. The first
great war work, in which the High
School helped, was in November. At
this time the Y. M. C. A. was having its
great drive for the Army Y. M. C. A.
Fund. As High School boys are not ex-
pected to enlist in the army, they
patriotically decided to do their part by
making it easier for the brave soldiers
who are fighting now for our flag, so
they formed a Patriotic Service League.
This league was to help the Y. M. C. A.
in the raising of the Prisoner's Relief
At a meeting of the boys. Harold Gib-
son was elected Major, John Monk and
Charles Pitsor, captainsg James Carver,
Captain of Finance, and Thomas Kemply
Captain of Correspondence. Captains
Monk and Pitsor appointed as Lieuten-
ants: Walter Ruge, Rodney Baird, Gor-
don Lindquist and Jay Davis. Emerson
Dawson was appointed lieutenant of the
Freshmen and Sophomores and John
Snook of the Juniors and Seniors. One
corporal was chosen from each class.
They were Frank Waldburger from the
Freshmen, George Thompson from the
Sophomores, Lysle Tullar from the Jun-
iors, and Lawrence Reece from the
Major Gibson, his corps, C. A. Helsell,
L. H. Minkel and W. H. Blakely were
served luncheon in the Domestic Science
rooms. Plans were made for their big
drive. They were determined to go
"over the top" if possible in their cam-
paign. At the assembly that afternoon,
Major Gibson, Captain Monk, Captain
Pitsor, Captain of Finance Carver and
Corporal Reece addressed the school.
Major Gibson gave advice to the boys
who found it difficult to save.
Later in the afternoon the boys were
solicited for their pledges. The pledge
was ten dollars, or one dollar per month
for ten months. There were 130 boys who
pledged, of which 8480.50 had been paid
in before April. The -number of boys
that responded was very gratifying con-
sidering that many were making pay-
ments on the First Liberty Loan.
Major Gibson and his officers did not
organize their work to encourage patriot-
ism among our own High School boys
alone. Three teams were organized to
visit the surrounding towns and solicit.
The first team, consisting of Superin-
tendent Minkel, Jay Davis, James Car-
ver, Rollin Fitch and Charles Pitsor visit-
ed Gowrie and Callender. The second
team consisting of Mr. C. A. Helsell,
Harold Gibson, John Snook, and Robert
Reed visited Duncombe, Lehigh and
Humboldt. A third team composed of
Mr. W. H. Blakely, John Monk, Lawr-
ence Reece, Emerson Dawson and
Thomas Kemply visited Otho and Day-
ton. In all the towns the response was
The boys had started the ball rolling.
In the Y. W. C. A. Campaign that fol-
lowed which was to raise money for
establishing Hostess Houses at the can-
tonments, the girls, not to be outdone by
the boys, also formed a Patriotic Service
League for aiding in the Y. W. C. A.
Campaign. Miss Winter presided at a
meeting of the girls after school. Miss
Cora Adams, Miss Nell Allison, Y. W. C.
A. secretaries, and Miss Stahl gave inter-
esting talks on the campaign for funds
for the War Work Council. Mr. Blakely
gave an excellent talk also. The speakers
told of the great need of the Hostess

Houses which were to be established not
only here in our country but also in
Europe where they would benefit the
Red Cross nurses and the girls working
in the factories where conditions are
Following this, officers were elected.
Gertrude Meloy was chosen Major, Mar-
garet Brady and Frances Dolliver as
Captains, and Eleanor Mulroney, Cap-
tain of Finance. Each captain was priv-
ileged to choose four lieutenants and four
corporals, one from each class. Captain
Dolliver chose as her lieutenants: Helen
Halfpap, Senior, Alta Harding, Junior,
Ruth Griggs, Sophomore, and Ann Con-
way, Freshman. For her corporals she
chose: Marjory McQuilkin, Senior,
Elizabeth Healy, Junior, Velva Minty,
Sophomore, and Mona Neff, Freshman.
Captain Brady appointed as ueutenants,
Catherine McCann, Senior, Eleanor Mul-
roney, Junior, Alice Schroeder, Sopho-
more, and Charlotte Ford, Freshman. To
the rank of corporal she appointed: Mil-
dred Koll, Senior, Charlotte Wilson, Jun-
ior, Ruth Wildman, Sophomore, and
Rachel McCreight, Freshman.
Major Meloy, her efficient corps of
officers, Miss Stahl, Miss Adams, Miss
Allison and Miss Winter were entertain-
ed at luncheon at the Y. W. C. A. Build-
ing. They talked over the work together
and laid the plans for their campaign.
The afternoon Assembly was in charge
of the girls. Excellent booster speeches
were made by Major Meloy, Captain
Brady, Captain Dolliver and Captain of
Finance Mulroney. The girls used the
time allotted them to good advantage
and were highly complimented for not
Following the Assembly every officer
visited a class room and after a short
speech, canvassed each girl for her
pledge. The girls were asked for Five
Dollars, or fifty cents per month for ten
months. Two girls might sign a pledge
together to make it easier. One hundred
and twenty-five girls responded to the
call, pledging five hundred and seventy-
five dollars. The girls showed a great
page one hundred-one
deal of spirit and enthusiasm in their
work. After several had been turned
in, it was interesting to note that the girls
had turned in the most money in spite
of the fact that their payments had been
half as large. Before April two hundred-
fifty dollars were turned in.
The results of the Y. M. C. A. and Y.
W. C. A. campaigns were three fold: The
pupils contributed to a worthy cause,
lessons in economy and thrift were
taught them in fulfilling their pledges,
and they received fine training in public
speaking by appearing before the As-
sembly and various class rooms.
Fort Dodge High School has also con-
tributed generously to the Red Cross.
Through the cooperation of the farmers,
the High School boys were allowed to
pick up the apples which were going to
waste. These were made up into delici-
ous apple butter and jelly by the Domes-
tic Science classes. The fruits of their
labor were sent to soldiers in the hospi-
tals, who are no doubt at the present time
singing the praises due our Domestic
Science Cooks. '
During Christmas Vacation many of
the High School pupils helped solicit in
the Red Cross Membership drive. Fort
Dodge High School was well represented
also at the Red Cross rooms in the Muni-
cipal Building, for a large number of
girls helped fold bandages during the
We must not forget the work of the
Girls' Gymnasium Classes, under the
supervision of Miss Maude O'Neill, a
knitted quilt was contributed to the Bel-
gians. The girls knit squares of black
and red which were put to gether in
checker board fashion. Our High School
colors of Crimson and Black, every one
agreed, showed off to good advantage.
Through the Local Red Cross Associa-
tion several very complete Christmas
boxes were sent by the girls. Although
these boxes were not sent to France as
the girls had at first expected, neverthe-
less they were greatly enjoyed by the

boys in the cantonments on this side of
the water, as the notes which have since
been received would indicate. Bright
colored comfort pillows, filled with
t'snips", small utility bags, and a large
number of trench torches were also con-
tributed to the Local Red Cross Associa-
tion by the Girls' "Gym" Classes.
By giving a Red Cross Benefit Pro-
gram the High School was enabled to
turn over two-hundred dollars to the Red
Cross Association. The program was
very interesting and was well received by
a large, enthusiastic audience. The
program was, of course, of a patriotic
nature. It consisted of a flag drill, songs
of the Allies by the Boys and Girls Glee
Clubs and an appropriate play. It is safe
to say that nearly all the High School
pupils are members of the Red Cross.
On another war issue Fort Dodge High
School again responded loyally. When
the second Liberty Loan campaign was
launched they did themselves proud by
taking out two- one-hundred dollar bonds.
The first bond was purchased from the
proceeds of a High School masquerade
party. A small admission was charged
and by doing without refreshments we
received enough money to buy a bond
and at the same time gave a boost for
The second bond was the result of an
exciting "paper" campaign which was
raged in high School. Never before was
so much pep and vim shown as when the
classes tried to out do each other in pil-
ing up the largest heap in the front of
the Assembly. It was almost impossible
to enter the sanctorum, in fact hardly
breathing space, was available. Cellars
and attics were searched, in fact even the
archives were disturbed. Every one
promised to bring some, even if it were
no more than a sheet of the daily paper.
Paper was collected from here-from
there-in fact from every where. Every-
one enjoyed the excitement even if the
Assembly was rather damp and musty.
Miss Pittman originated the idea of
having the campaign and much credit
should be given her. At first the money
realized was to be used in purchasing a
picture for the school, however it was
decided that this would be a very un-
patriotic act when our government was in
need of aid. The pupils voted unani-
mously in favor of purchasing a Liberty
Bond with the funds. The purchase of
the picture was only postponed until the
In canvassing the school it was found
that one hundred eight pupils owned
bonds, 354,450 on the first loan, and 83,450
on the second. High School pupils were
urged to take out bonds and pay a certain
sum a week. Many booster speeches were
made and as a result 51,850 more worth
of bonds were taken out, making the
total sum of bonds owned by High
School pupils 89,750
The pupils are also doing well in the
purchasing of War Saving Certificates
and Thrift Stamps. The sale of these
Certificates and Thrift Stamps is in
charge of the Junior Commercial Club.
Every two weeks, the organization will
have a campaign for the Thrift Stamps.
The work of the campaign is supervised
by Frances Dolliver, chairman of the
publicity committee. The returns have
been excellent. Not only has patriotism
been shown in helping in outside activi-
ties but also in the courses of study. To
arouse patriotism, present day subjects
are reported on and discussed in nearly
all the classes Patriotic citizenship is
taught from the book "Democracy To-

One of the largest problems oi' the year
was that of conserving the apples. There
were quantities of these going to waste
because of the lack of someone to pick
them. The Domestic Science Depart-
ment of the High School decided that if
the boys would pick the apples and bring
them to the Kitchen the girls would do
the conserving. It was also decided fit-
ting to send the results of their conserva-
tion to soldiers who were confined in hos-
pitals in France. The work was entirely
voluntary and all the boys and girls in
the school were asked to help. Again the
call was well answered. The equivalent
of ninety glasses of jelly and twenty-
five pints of apple butter was made. To
facilitate shipment parafined fiber con-
tainers were used. A part was sold to
pay for sugar, containers and parafine.
The jelly was packed in strong, water
proof boxes and sent to the hospitals
through the local Red Cross. In the top
of each container of apple butter was
placed a cheery note to let the receiver
know that the folks at home were still
thinking of him.
The Senior class proved itls efficiency
in a demonstration in Prusia's window.
For this they baked a variety of Liberty
breads using no wheat flour whatever.
These were on display in the Window with
explanation cards giving the recipe and
the cost of each bread. Mr. Hoover had
designed a house dress to D6 worn while
cooking that was very neat and attrac-
tive. The girls took turns in exhibiting
Early in the Spring another demonstra-
tion was given i11 the office of the Gas
and Electric Company. Twenty-one girls
assisted in this demonstration. Cakes
were baked with barley and bran flour as
substitutes for the wheat flour. These
were sold and it can truly be said that
they sold like "hot cakes." The proceeds
were given to the Red Cross. The girls
dressed in white and presented a very
neat appearance as they mixed and baked
the cakes. Many people in the city
hardly realized that the Domestic Science
classes could be so efficient. Coffee and
War biscuits were served by the Sopho-
more girls. The girls who took part were

BY JAY DAVIS
The F. D. H. S. has been put on the map
by its illustrious Alumni. The splendid
type of its Alumni shows, in a large
measure, the high standard of the school.
The graduates of the F. D. H. S. have
gained renown in almost every line of
endeavor. Many of the most prominent
and successful business men of this city
are graduates of the F. D. H. S.
Fort Dodge High School is justly proud
of the manner in which her graduates
have responded to the call of their coun-
try. Alumni who have become promin-
ent in the world, have cast aside their
ambitions and are doing their bit whether
"with the men at the front" or "with the
men behind the men at the front."
When the men were drawn from the
local companies for the Rainbow Division,
which is now in France, three graduates
and one undergraduate of the F. D. H. S.
were taken. Others, who joined the com-
panies here, are now on the border at
Camp Cody, while many others are scat-
tered throughout the country at different
training camps, or naval stations.
The men in service today are carrying
with them that spirit which was fostered
in High School.
At the present time F. D. H. S. has a
fine representation in the leading col-
leges of the country, and we must not for-
get that they, too, are doing their duty
for when their call comes they will be
better fitted for service to their country.
It is to be hoped that when this war is
over, and our men returned, that a firmer
bond between them and the school may
be established by the formation of an
The following list of Alumni now in
service is complete up-to-date as far as
is known. Of course it is impossible to
find the whereabouts of some of them
who are now scattered to the four cor-
ners of the earth.

Letters from Alumni Hover Tlieren
France, Mar. 17, 1918.
Dear Friend Mr. Blakely:
I received your letter and have been fI1OViI1g S0 much that this is the first
chance I have had to write. Everywhere we go, we walk, and now as a force of
a habit I walk in my sleep.
Soldier's life is divided into two periods, one is in the trenches, and the other
in training or resting. While you are in the trenches you do not sleep much about
an hour or so a day or night. When you get back you drill most of the time, and
during drill hours we have all kinds of games and practice things we are going to
do when we get back to trenches again.
I suppose you know already that we have been "over the top." We waited
for hours, while our artillery shot at the Germans and then over We went. Every-
body wanted to go over again and I think they will get their wish before the war is
Our company is going to adopt an orphan. The men can give as much as they
like and then the money is sent to the "Stars and Stripes" the A. E. F. paper,
and they get the war orphan. It takes "five hundred francs, Cabout S1003 to
adopt one for a year. I think our company will get about two. I gave five francs.
Do you know who it was who started the talk about me being captured by
We are going to make a raid tonight on the grey backs and I think there will
be quite a few casualties on the enemy's side.
Sincerely, Walter Kemply.
Torneo, Finland, March 2d, 1918.
My Dear Parents and All: Q
Well here I am at another mile post in my long journey which seems never
to take an end. A few days ago we received a wire from the American Legation in
Stockholm, advising us not to attempt to proceed to Russia as we had intended to
do, owing to the conditions that had developed in Petrograd. The leader of our
party said he could not delay trying to get to Russia, so he, with four of the men
set out and left four of us here to await further developments.
There is a tremendous amount of traffic through here now on account of the
trouble in southern Finland. A great many of the soldiers both Swedish and Finn-
ish, stay at the hotel here. We have had some very thrilling experiences with
drunken soldiers, one of them most exciting, because they insisted that We
were spies and they wished to dispose of us. Nothing happened however, and we
are as well and happy as we ever were.
Perhaps the most interesting experience I have had was a reindeer ride. The
reindeer is guided by a single rein. Thi.s seems to be a very simple accomplish-
ment for the natives, but it proved a very disastrous experiment for ine. When I
got into the rig I evidently did something wrong because no sooner had I put my foot
in the 'bus' than off went the poor animal like a bolt of thunder, and before I
knew it, I had been thrown out in the snow with the "pulka" on top of me. I dis-
coveredg on investigation that I hadn't used the proper language talking to him,
for I used giddap and Whoa, which the little fellow couldu't understand. I knew
that the people here talked a different language from mine, but I had no idea that
the animals, horses, dogs, deer and all, had gone through the Tower of Babel.
I have been very well since coming to Europe and you may believe that I am
very thankful for that. In fact I have never felt better.
Your son and brother, Paul E. Gustafson.

hear smart conversashuns or find out
misdemeanors. They produce awful dis-
ease of cold feet and do no good to no
one. Thus must I vacate my mind of

The Case of and Jane
Released by PCYMTBSTOH
The Warrior Bold and the Maiden Fair-playing the title
roles of Bill and Jane-the True Lovers. Be it known that Bill
was the Hero of Fort Dodge High, and that Jane had acquired
the gentle art of "making eyes."
Now, Jane was a general-favorite with all-with poor,
scared, little Freshies, would-be gallant Sophs, bold and daring
Juniors, and last but not least with the noble Seniors. Because
of this Bill developed into a most jealous creature.
However, Bill thought his day had finally come! It was the
day of THE game of the season. "I'm going to do my durndestf'
thought Bill as he strode onto the field with a mighty stride. And
how Bill 's heart did go pitty-pat when he saw his "Adored One"
sitting on the bleachers. Ah! such determination could win
hearts as well as football games!
And the game? It was most exciting. At the end of the
first half, the score was 7-6 in favor of Fort Dodge. "I've won
her for sure! She couldn't go back on me now after making that
spectacular touch down." Such thoughts made Bill happy as he
was sure that he had won his prize-Jane! But-often our
dreams are blasted! The game ended with a 13-7 score in favor
of West Des Moines. 'cShe will feel sorry and be mine anyway,"
Bill rushed off the field with the rest,-somewhat sad, but
happy in the thought that he was soon to be with his "Lady
Love." No one has ever surpassed Bill 's record for speed in tak-
ing a shower. The boys wondered what was up because they had
never seen Bill show quite so much speed.

Billis rage was beyond descriptioni To think that Jane
would go so far to "make eyes" at an utter stranger and ask
him to ride with her too! Ah! it was awful. "Why can't girls
become sensible creatures? And she knew I was hurrying too,7'
thought poor dejected Bill.
But Bill attempted to be brave. He swallowed hard, put on
a broad smile, and looked unconcerned, even though he had to
ride down town in a jitney. How hot and stuffy old jitnies are
especially when one thinks that he might be riding in a nice, new
shiny car, beside his '4Adored One." What a cruel, cruel world
As Bill was feeling somewhat 4'blue" he sauntered into Mer.-
rill and Brown's where he met the "gang" who tried to cheer him
up, by telling him there was a new girl in town, "who was sure a
pippinf' However, Bobby, Bill's best friend, thought he could
bring him out of the depths of despair by taking him for a ride.
Worse luck! Bill's heart burned with rage! There she was
riding down the 'fMain Drag" so everybody could see her. Now
all the fellows would see her and have an excuse to "guy" him.
"Ye Gods! she sure is a heartless creature!" grumbled Bill.
"Say, Bob lets seek a quiet place. She will be showing him
off down town and L don't want to see him-or her either!"
Accordingly, they drove out to the Boulevard and decided to
"do" the Park. l
A very unwise idea! Way over in that secluded corner
where all the lovers go, Bill discovered Jane and that "Usurper
of Other Peoplels Rights" having a most delightful tete e tete.
HAh me That's the last straw! Let 's get out of here," muttered

The Unknown was a true gallant so he took Jane to the
show. "VVhich one? Oh, the Majestic has the most exciting
pictures and that organist is simply divine," proffered Jane.
After the show, Jane and her "Newly Acquired" proceeded
to Georges' the rendezvous of all lovers. There Jane had the
latest special Lovers' Delight. And the Unknown had that old
stand-by Malted Milk. How gay their spirits were!
But poor Bill had no luck at all! When he decided an hour
later to drown his sorrows in a "Coca Cola" at George 's he met
Jane and her "Friend', just emerging from there, and Jane had
a huge box of candy under her arm. Curses!
Bill attempted one of his speedy dashes but too late! Jane
had caught him and was introducing him to her cousin from Des
Moines! "Bill, you 're just horrid. l've tried to hail you a
dozen times today and you always looked the other way," sput-
tered Jane. '
A magic charm! Bill now smiled again. He seemed so will-
ing Cand anxiousl to take the Cousin to the train. Of course,
Jane sat in the middle and everyone was happy.
When the trai11 departed Bill had no tear of regret in his
eye, and even Jane felt just a trifle relieved. Relatives do spoil
things sointimes-you know.
THE END OF A PERFECT C115 DAY!

THE GENTLE ART GF
We onee knew a hard drinking
man who wore a flaming red tie to
overshadow the eolor of his nose.
This was the gentle art of camou-
flage, an art which can he applied
as successfully to modifying one's
personal appearance as to screening
a battery of Field artillery.
Stripes make a man look taller.
Cheeks and plaids make him look
Large men should avoid helted
coats and douhle-breasted styles.
Tight-fitting clothes naturally i11-
dieate the figure that's underneath
and are best adapted to the young
We have made a study of this
gentle art and have the goods, we
can do wonders for your personal
We have here in Everyman's
Store the best line of clothes for
youthful figures made in America.
In your hunt for just the right
clothes, start right-start right here.

Men-tho-eze will quickly relieve the most stubborn cold. Inflammation
yields when Men-tho'-eze is rubbed on. Soreness vanishes, after an applica-
tion of this Wonderful liniment and ointment combined.
Try inserting a little Men-thot-eze in the nostrils-it is perfectly safe-
and see how rapidly and how pleasantly it clears the nasal passages, and
drives the cold away. Rub a little on the surfaces where the ncuralgia pains
are Worst and see how quickly it relieves.
For years Men-tho-eze has been the private prescription of a prominent
European physician. On his retirement he gave this formula to his personal
friend, the manufacturer of Men-tho-ezlev, with permission for him to use it
And now Men-tho-eze--the high-priced prescription formerly for the few
can be had by all for a reasonable price at any drug store in 25c or large 5Oc
In order to prove its exceptional healing qualities in cases of cuts, burns,
bruises, rheumatism, headache, etc., We will send a free -sample of Men-tho-eze
to those who write to us.

HERE'S SUCCESS TO YOU!
To the average young high school graduate who is desirous of entering the mer-
cantile field or some other line of endeavor after leaving school, the attaining of success
is apparently a simple and easy matter. And, it is for the guidance of these few
graduates that this advertisement has been inserted.
The advertiser Was, at one time, of the same opinion, but personal contact with
the business world, has taught him differently.
Success is not to be so easily attained, and no man may gain success unless he
possesses the following qualities: ability, self-respect, perseverance and thrifty and
without first gaining the knowledge that comes only from actual experience in life.
Phlrthermore, no man may gain Real Success, and honors, unless he first is able to
obtain the confidence and good-will of each and every individual in his community.
The yearly volume of business now done by the advertiser, after sixteen years
of continuous business in Fort Dodge, has fully proven to him that the above qualities
are the only basic and concrete essentials necessary and absolutely must be possessed
by the uniniated in business, to assure him success in the mercantile field.
And, Mr. Senior, bear this in mind: If in the future, your patronage is solicited
by the advertiser, that, back of each and every article of wearing apparel sold at
his store, stands Silverstein's Qualityg Silver-stein's Serviceg Silverstein's Integrity.
Yours very truly,
M. J. SILVERSTEIN.

STEARNS MOTOR CARS
Power when ou Need It
Nowadays talk of a. ninety horse-power engine doesn't mean as much as it used to when automo-
mobiles were new and common experience hadn't proved that power on paper and power on the road
were very often apt to he vastly different things.
The power that the automobile owner wants is power when he needs it-power for a long continuous
drive over all sorts of roads and under conditions different from the smooth street of the city. It's the
power, too, that doesn't deteriorate rapidly with use and require him to "nurse" his car over grades.
Such power is delivered by the Stearns-Knight. It is delivered because the Knight-type engine will
deliver more power for its rating than the poppet-valve of motor. And because Stearns practice has
developed the Knight-type engine to its maximum efficiency and set in a car that is as dependable as
And the longer you use the car the more power you get out of it.
If you are buying an automobile with the expectation of throwing it away or trading it in at a
small fraction of its cost at the end of a few thousand miles, don't buy the Stearns.
But if you are buying a car that will deliver power when you need it now and a year from now
and two years from now and three years from now, you can't afford not to buy a Stearns.
