THE SENIOR CLASS of 1919 wish to thank all those who aided in any way in the publication of our “Cauldron.” The time, labor and patience which Miss Howard gave to us while com-piling this annual cannot be easily estimated. Mr. Hough, Miss Nold, the Art Supervisor, and Mr. McClure also deserve special mention. We are very grateful to these teachers, who have rendered us so much assistance, and we desire to extend to them the thanks of the entire Senior Class.
To the business men of Frankfort, we are deeply indebted. They so willingly advertised in the “Cauldron,” that we know they are in sympathy with the High School. Fully realizing that without their support, it would have been impossible for us to publish our “Cauldron,” and knowing that in many instances they receive no financial returns from their advertising in our annual, we wish to express to them our appreciation.

In nineteen hundred and forty-three,
A sum of money was willed to me.
From whom I got it I will not say,
But that I procured it in an honest way. Back to Frankfort I’d take a trip,
By foot, by car, by train, by ship;
It was many weary miles away;
Just how far I could not say.
I traveled far, I traveled long,
But surely there must be something wrong; Along my way I had not seen Any of my class of old nineteen.
I arrived in Frankfort, it seemed so good; Tall buildings all around me stood.
1 asked a policeman the way to go;
He recognized me, it was Sam Reno.
We shook hands as old friends should.
And show me the way, he surely would. “Frankfort, you see ' he said to me,
“Is ten times as large as it used to be." The buildings now all scrape the sky. What caused this growth, I’ll tell you why In 1919, you should know,
Of the little school where we used to go.
TV nty-XineTil E CAULDRON
On Prairie Creek the ruins stand.
Although the stones have turned to sand.
It keeps its place there in the sun,
A monument to work and fun.
Our class graduated there you see,
And proved twice as bright as it seemed to be.
When I began this experience of mine. I felt I could tell it all in rhyme, but my dream was disturbed, and Coleridge-like, I could no longer write in verse. But, feeling sure the world would want to know the story of this illustrious class, I determined to continue in prose.
Having received this most astonishing information concerning my old class of 1919, I. led by Sam Reno, proceeded to investigate the great work thereof.
Magnificent residences lined the street. At one fine home we stopped and rang the bell. Much to my bewilderment, Marjorie Garrott opened the door. I saw a group at which I stared and stared, for who should they be but Doris Irwin, Martha Lucas and Catharine Crebs, enjoying a quiet game of poker. We joined the girls for a social game, but finally I knew I must go, if I hoped to see all of my old childhood town. That I might see as much as possible in my limited time, we called a taxi, and we drove off in a large Ford limousine, owned by the taxi company of Durbin and Donoho. From mv seat in the car. I saw many familiar names, such as Allen Aughe, Undertakers; Denton Stair, Beauty Parlors. The building containing the beautiful parlors was at least thirty stories high, and had been built by Contractor Robert Cripe. for the beauty parlors, exclusively. One sign that particularly took my eye was “McKinsey, Parker Werts. Fine Ladies’ Hats, Satisfaction in your hands.” This establishment took about ten stories of a building which Sam told me was owned by James McClamroch.
The rest of the building was taken up by the Gum Van-Eaton rhubarb pie factory, which Sam said, did a thriving business keeping Charles Emery and Frank Kirkpatrick full of pie. These men had retired, after building two business blocks, and began loafing, especially around the Sheets Thompson’s Cigar Store. The latter men had made their fortune selling blood orange pop. I saw County Clerk Harker. who Sam told me, was running for congress against Judge Moss, on the Total Ignorance ticket.
We drove on past a magnificent building built by the Benjamin Norris Mud Boat Company. We got out here to look at this building and found Marybelle Dolt, the famous interior decorator, giving the inside the finishing touches. Miss Dolt had decorated the interior of most every important building in town, such as Robert Morris’ Hamburger Stand, and Gladys Wall’s Art Gallery.
Just at this moment in our drive, Sam asked me if I did not want to go to the court house where I might see many of my old acquaintances, for the case of Boulden against Lewis was being tried. Beatrice Boulden had filed suit against Bruce Lewis for insulting one of her pet white rats hv calling him a little rascal. The lawyers for the plaintiff were Lewis Russell and Herbert Moore; while those for the defendant were Aleto Waldo and Esther Cann. I glanced over toward the jury, who were mostly women, some of whom were quite brilliant looking. To my surprise, among the number were Grace Catron. Della Christy, Sarah Duncan. Cornelia Kennedy, Trella Kelly, Mary Scheirer, Myrtle VanMeter, and Nadine Vincent, sitting in their seats staring at me. They may have recognized me, I know not. As the trial went on. Policewoman, Blanche Hardin, brought the quivering prisoner to the stand. His appearance was so heart-rending that
ThirtyI was forced to leave. Sam was so interested in the trial he did not see me go.
1 went to the theatre. Here I found Florence Fisher selling tickets, and so I got my ticket at half price. I asked Florence who managed the theatre. She had no more than said, “Harry I eslie,” when who should appear but Harry, himself. He gave me a seat on the front row. much to my delight. The play was “Macbeth.” The players were all women, and Besse Spray took the part of Macbeth, and VVilhma Keefer, the part of Lady Macbeth. The rest of the cast from my old, class were Helen Huffine, Pauline Spray. Margaret Salkeld, Irene Seaman and Ariel Van Dyke, the play was a great success.
I departed down Clinton street and met Joe McCoy painting a landscape on the banks of Prairie Creek. I complimented him on his work and passed on. All of a sudden I heard a terrible racket. Down the street came a suffragette parade. Marian Harland was at its head, beating a dish pan; following her were Mildred Moore, Ruth Miller, Irene Thompson, Mary Stern, Anna Barnett, and Helen Faust, all carrying large banners and raising a great hoo-doo. I was glad to see them turn the corner out of sight. Just then. I felt something from behind give my coat a tug; I turned around and there was a dog. a little black-haired dog. At once I looked for Art Milne, and sure enough, there he was. He came up and shook hands with me. The dog was “Buster, Jr.” but not the “Buster” of old. When I asked Art what his business was. he said that he was Superintendent of the Cracked Railroad between Jefferson and Frankfort.
Art and I walked down the street and bought some bananas of a stand owned by Martha Kersey. As we
Til E CAT! LI) RON
came into the aristocratic part of town, a large limousine sailed past. In it I recognized Ellen Price and Roxie Barnett, going to some swell social function, without a doubt. We were lazily crossing the street, when a big red speedster came around the corner. Helen Berryman was at the wheel and “Fan” Rock wood was at her side. Art said they were the town cut-ups. We started back toward the city and met Wilma Emely and her husband walking down the street. Just at that moment, a taxi rushed by bringing Sidney Paden home from California. At least Art said she was just returning from the west.
We again came to the court house, where I met the mayor, who proved to be no other than William Davies; this did not astonish me to a great extent as I knew his abilities in olden times. After Mayor Davies, Superintendent Milne, and myself had had a quiet talk, I departed for the hotel, having decided to stay in Frankfort, myself.
I received a job on the Morning Times,
Drawing pictures and making rhymes.
In my old class I was satisfied—
All were living, none had died.
I felt that to be doing right I must do something for blue and white.
A monument I’d build; but where?
On Prairie Creek, I’d build it there.
This is the work of our class you have read.
I hope you’ll believe every word I have said.
My tale is done, and then I bid farewell and AMEN.

We, the dignified Seniors of the class of 1919, in this, our sad hour of parting, do hereby will and bequeath all of our best known characteristics, and most cherished possessions to the unfortunates who are still struggling upward toward the dizzy heights which we ourselves have gained.
We will and bequeath:
1. Gerald Berryman’s surplus brains to the Junior class, to be divided equally among them.
2. Harry Leslie’s sky structure to “Skeet” Thompson, providing “Skeet” does not use it all at once.
3. Walter Allen’s regular attendance to Maurice Rogers, for at least five more years.
4. Ruth Miller’s dislike for MOST men to Mary Shields.

Le Cercle Francais
French was taught in the Frankfort High School for the first time last fall. At the beginning of the second semester a French club was organized so that the students might learn more about French life and customs than would otherwise be possible.
At the organization meeting the officers were elected. They were: President, Bruce Lewis; Vice-President,
Ninabelle Stair; Secretary, Cornelia Kennedy; and Treasurer. James Kramer. The president appointed a membership committee, a programme committee, and a name committee.
The name committee was appointed, in order to secure a more attractive name than the commonplace “French Club”—“Le Cercle Francais” was chosen.
Le Cercle Francais has taken part in several activities this year. Through the courtesy of the First and Second Basketball teams, the club was enabled, by giving a benefit basketball game, to adopt three French orphans. The children, two girls and a boy, live in villages of the Cautal district in France, and will correspond with their godparents, in Le Cercle Francais, through their guardians.
The popularity of Le Cercle Francais will probably be greater than that of any of the other language clubs, because of the present interest in France. Even tho’ the club is new, there is a great deal of interest taken in it, and there seems to be a bright future for it.

The French Play
The biggest project undertaken by the new French Club was the presentation of a play, “Les Deux Sourds” (The Two Deaf Men), by Jules Moinaux. The play was given by six members of the club, on the evening of April 14. in the auditorium of the Central Building. Music was furnished by the high school orchestra.
The plot of the play was simple and easily followed. Those who took part in the play not only showed skill in handling the French lines, but likewise, displayed marked dramatic ability.
The cast was as follows:
Damoiseau, an old man, who is deaf_______William Ghere
Boniface, his servant____________________James Kramer
Placide, a young Frenchman, who enjoys
A Policeman______________________________Paul Donoho
A Gardener_____________—-----------------Cletis I emon
Eglantine. Damoiseau’s daughter________Ninabelle Stair
Monsieur Damoiseau, because of his own deafness, wants his daughter. Eglantine, to marry a deaf man. so she and her husband cannot talk to each other in low tones and keep their father out of the conversation. Placide comes to the Damoiseau country place, hunting rabbits. Damoiseau orders the young man off. He does not leave, and so they arrest him and are marching him off to jail, when he pretends to be deaf and asks forgiveness for his disregard of their cries.
Damoiseau is appeased and asks Placide to marry his daughter. Complications arise unexpectedly because the old man suddenly regains his hearing and no longer needs a deaf son-in-law. Explanations are made, however, and a marriage is arranged for the two young people, who have fallen in love with each other.
Senior Class Play
The Senior Class hopes to give a Class Play this year, but the work upon it has been begun so late that no report can be given, except to say that the play chosen is “Robina in Search of a Husband,” by Jerome K. Jerome, and that the possible cast is:
John Coulter (Class of 1920)__________Lord Rathbone

The Boosters’ Club
The Boosters’ Club of F. H. S. organized in February of 1918. It purposes mainly to “boost” the various high school activities as its name implies, and in so doing stands to the faculty as a representative body of the high school students. In connection with “boosting” activities it has the power to control, to a large extent, the arrangements for each undertaking of the high school as a whole.
The Boosters’ Club always consists of nine members, —five seniors and four juniors. The Senior members of the Boosters’ Club of 1918 and 1919 were William Davies, Gordon Moss, Bruce Lewis, William Moore and Walter
Allen, and the junior members were John Cox. John Moss, and David Darker. The officers were: William Davies, President; Gordon Moss, Vice-President, and Bruce Lewis, Secretary and Treasurer.
A great deal has been accomplished by the Boosters’ Club during the past year. It arranged “pep” meetings, chartered a special car to Lebanon, selected yell leaders, “boosted” basketball and track, and looked after the details of the Triangular Debate, the District Discussion Contest, and the District Basketball Tourney, here. As this book goes to press, we have under con sideration a project which we think we can carry on, that is. the publication of a high school paper.
The Forum of this year differs in several important respects from that of former years. Previously it was primarily a debating society with an occasional trial or discussion; this year it has broadened its field, so that any person interested in debating, discussion, declamation, dramatics, or music, who has a passing grade in four subjects and who is willing to take part in the programs, may be made a member. An ordinary Forum program is divided into four parts: one part devoted to business,
one to declamation, one to debating or discussion, and one to music. The program committee, which was formerly composed of the president and the sergeant-at-arms, now consists of three Forum members, one for each division of the program. This year David Harker has provided
the debates and discussion, Jeanne Cheadle the music, and Ninabelle Stair the declamations. The sergeant-at-arms. Miss McDonald, has assisted the program committee. Before this year, new' members were admitted to the Forum after their names, which had been proposed by some member at the preceding meeting, had received a majority vote of the entire body; this year, a committee of five members, elected by the Forum, admits new' members. thus saving a great deal of time.
The officers elected for the first term were: John Cox. president; Harry Leslie, vice-president; Irene Thompson, secretary-treasurer. Those for the second term were: John Cox, president; upon his resignation, Harry Leslie was elected; Jeanne Cheadle, vice-president; and Edith Artley, secretary-treasurer.

AGRICULTURE CLUBT II E CAULDRON
Last December the Agriculture class of the high school decided to form a club for the purpose of learning what each of the boys of the class was doing at home in his project work of feeding and caring for certain live stock with which he was working, and also to learn about live topics of the day which could not be well taken up in class.
At the first meeting the following officers were elected for the term: Herbert Moore, president; Wilfred Young, vice-president; and Clarence Boys, secretary-treasurer. Meetings are held every other Friday.
There are two divisions of this club, the Pig and Dairy. Of the pig club, Kenneth Cohee is chairman and Cleo Brock secretary-treasurer; of the Dairy club, Glen Seaman is chairman and Paul Cue secretary-treasurer. Each division takes charge of alternate meetings and arranges their own programs. Sometimes they have
speakers from outside talk on some phase of agriculture, boys may report on their projects, or trips may be taken to places of interest. Boys who deserve mention for work on various projects are: Roscoe Davis and Paul
Cue, who won the prizes in the Dairy club contest for the past year; Herschell Knapp, who made the highest yield of corn, (94.3 bushels), in this district of twenty counties; Halfred Mortsolf and Ralph Elsea, who won two of the three places on the corn judging team which will represent this county in a state wide contest at Purdue University on April 23.
The club was honored by being chosen by Purdue University to send a corn testing demonstration team which will show and explain the latest method of testing corn before a meeting of all of the boys and girls clubs of the state. The boys selected were Kenneth Cohee. Ralph Elsea and Cleo Brock.
The Mechanical Club
Among the organizations of F. H. S. is a newly organized club, known as the Mechanical Club. This organization, though very limited in membership, is very influential in bringing to its members a spirit of brotherhood in their work as well as in their social hours. Under the direction of Mr. Davis, instructor of Manual Train-
ing, the club was organized with a charter membership of seven. At a meeting held in March, Karl Bossum was elected president, and Clyde Aughe secretary-treasurer. It is the plan of the club to further the study of mechanical problems in their meetings, and at the same time find the pleasure which comes to one who has really accomplished that for which he has aimed.

The Sunshine Society, one of the outstanding organizations of the high school, has closed the eighth year and —in many respects—the most successful year of its history. As its name implies, it has brought good fellowship into the school, and radiated sunshine and joy into many homes. This work of the society has been made possible through the loyalty of the girls and the hearty support of many outside of the school.
Early in the school year, the reorganization was effected by the election of the following officers: Catharine Crebs. president; Frieda Crawford, treasurer, and Margaret Salkeld, secretary.
These officers lost no time in starting the social functions of the society. The first of these was the annual “Get Acquainted Party.” As usual this proved to be a “big success,” and did much in properly inducting the freshman class into the spirit of high school life The work of the society so auspiciously begun was brought to a sudden end by the closing of the schools for nine weeks on account of the epidemic of influenza which swept the town. This epidemic brought a great deal of sickness into the homes of high school pupils. The unusual expense of sending flowers to so many homes, where there were both sickness and death, rapidly depleted the treasury. When school opened, as the society was found to be in debt, plans were made to raise money in order to bring the society into a healthy financial condition. Several sales of home-made candy and pcpccrn were held; but the
greatest help to this end was the minstrel show given by the society. This show was the hit of the season, and proved to be one of the most popular entertainments ever given by the high school girls.
Two other enterprises undertaken by the society are worthy of mention. The society, with the aid of the Domestic Science Department, sold refreshments at the district basketball tournament which was held in Frankfort. Besides winning for the school the hearty praise of the visitors of the various schools from the district, a neat sum of money was turned over to the society. The other affair was the visit of the Wabash Glee Club. This well-known organization gave a popular entertainment under the auspices of the society, and created an increased interest both in music and in college life.
Such is the record in brief of the society’s activities for the year. We feel that it has been a worthwhile work and has contributed no small part to the interest of the pupils in their high school life, and has also brought joy and good cheer into many lives that were made heavy by sickness and death. The year closes with a greater amount of money in the treasury than that left by any previous year, notwithstanding the demands made by the unusual conditions in our school and city.
We want to thank the faculty, the students, and the public, for aiding in this worthwhile task of distributing sunshine in our school.
—Margaret Salkeld, Secretary.

The Sunshine Minstrel Show
One of the most enjoyable and successful entertainments this year, was the minstrel show, which was presented at the Central Building, February 13th, by the Sunshine Society girls, under the direction of Kathryn Norris. .
The stage, which was very attractively decorated in blue and white, made a pleasing background for the black-faced girls, dressed in men’s clothing.
The principals and chorus marched on the stage, while singing the opening chorus, “The Darktown Strutters’ Ball.” And from then on the audience was kept in a roar of laughter and applause.
Margaret Salkeld acted as interlocutor. Madge Norris and Dorotha Phipps played the part of “end men,’’ and by their clever and original acting provided an overflow of merriment for the spectators. Clever jokes, which will long be remembered, were “gotten off’’ on the faculty and students.
The program consisted of several special numbers,
which were greatly appreciated. Doris Werts and Mary-belle Dolt gave solo dances that showed their ability in oriental and aesthetic dancing. Elizabeth Rankin and Madge Spray were very attractive in a Skaters’ Waltz. Irene Thompson and Thelma Denton gave readings that greatly pleased the audience. Jeanne Cheadle, and Nina-bolle Stair, who was dressed as a soldier, won favor by the way they introduced popular songs. The principals were well supported by the ukelele chorus, which caused much merriment and made a great deal of noise. The chorus consisted of many Sunshine Society girls who did their part to make the show a great success.
Much credit for the success of the minstrel show is due to Miss Norris, the supervisor of physical training, who worked untiringly for several weeks. Praise should also be given to Mary Voorhees, pianist—few people realize the responsibility that rests upon the pianist—and members of the orchestra, without whom the minstrel show could not have been given.

The Frankfort affirmative met the Lebanon negative In the Central Auditorium, Frankfort, on the 6th of February. This was the Frankfort-Lebanon seetion of the Triangular Debate. The question, which at that time was of great concern to America, was. “Resolved: That foreign immigration to the United
States should be further restricted.”
The Rev. E. D. Salkeld, the presiding officer, after the customary explanation and instructions, introduced the first affirmative speaker. James McCUunroch. who quite effectively gained attentive hearing from the large audience. He was followed by the first negative speaker, who made an impressive speech by recalling American ideals and traditions. William
Moore then took the floor for Frankfort and delivered his speech in his usual convincing manner. Undoubtedly the next speech for the negative was the best of the evening. It was delivered by Richardson of Lebanon, who is quite at home upon the platform. Th affirmative third speaker, David Marker, in turn set forth a practical plan of restriction of immigration and summed up the arguments of the affirmative. He was followed by the last speaker for the negative. The debate was completed by rbuttals from all six of the speakers, two members of each team having three minutes each and the captains, five minutes each.
After some deliberation the Judges returned a verdict in favor of the negative.T II E C A

The Debate in
The Triangular Debate in Crawfordsville was between the affirmative team of that city and the negative team of Frankfort, which was composed of William Davies, captain. Dorsey Pitman. John Cox. and Harry Leslie, alternate.
The affirmative argued that unless immigration was restricted further the labor markets of the United States would be flooded. They pointed out the actions of the pro-Germans and spies as examples of the evils of immigration, and in conclusion advocated that all immigration to this country be stopped Tor a period of four years.
The negative showed that, since so many people had been
killed by the war, that there would be a shortage Instead of a surplus of labor, and that the United States might be facing an Immigration crisis instead of being overrun by immigrants. In conclusion they advocated a plan of distribution of the immigrants as a better remedy than restriction.
The affirmative team was composed of debaters who used sound logic and who had unusually good delivery. The negative team thought it might win in spite of this fact, because of the brilliant and forceful rebuttal of Davies, captain of the negative, but when the judges had rendered their decision, it was found that the affirmative had won by a unanimous vote.

THE CAULDRONTil K CAULDRON
There is nothing connected with school affairs more important, and at the same time more generally misunderstood, than athletics. To the unthinking pupil, and to the average fan outside the school, success is evidenced solely by the winning of basketball games, the success on the cinder path, etc. Of course, success in contest of any kind is highly desirable as it gives to the student body a feeling of great joy and bestows honor upon the school itself. But the wise Superintendent, the thoughtful Principal, and the careful, conscientious Athletic Director do not measure success in such manner.
In a strict sense, schools are not educational; they are mind developers. The mind requires training and upbuilding, the same as the muscles of the body. The teachers and instructors strive to develop a child’s mind systematically and make it well balanced and strong fibered. Each physical act performed requires a certain distinct set of muscles. Likewise, each mental effect calls into play a certain distinct set of mind muscles. Hence, to avoid the undue development of certain sets of mind muscles and the neglect of others, thus causing an illy balanced mind, different subjects are taught in the schools, greatly diversified, yet scientifically correlated. The result is that classes are graduated year after year, not educated, as the graduate conceitedly believes, but trained to study. If the graduate, from high school or college, is wise and introspective he will realize that his education has but just begun and upon his own efforts and industry will depend the extent of his learning.
A healthy body is required for a healthy mind, and therein lies the importance of athletics. Taking the chil-
dren of the lower grades, they are formed into physical instruction classes, and every set of muscles is developed and strengthened and the body made strong and pliant. Such instruction becomes distasteful, and an incentive for honest, conscientious application by the child is required. Hence, basketball, track, and field events, etc., are introduced, not primarily for the purpose of winning games and contests, but as an incentive for the child to do his best in the upbuilding of his body. It is a laudable ambition of every normal boy to excel in athletics, and his goal from the beginning is a place on the basketball, baseball, or track team. Hence, a school’s success in athletics, in a broad sense, does not depend upon winning teams. Spectators measure success by the number of games or contests won and see none but the sweating, straining contestants. The school authorities see back of these, a whole student body with clear eye, alert carriage, well-developed muscle, and trained in discipline.
Frankfort High School feels itself favored by having an Athletic Director who does not regard success as measured by the number of balls thrown through the net and the number of firsts secured in track or field events. By his system of instruction boys are taught mental as well as physical courage. They are taught self control under trying conditions, thus fitting them for a successful career after leaving school. Under the wise guidance of Mr. Lockhart, Frankfort High School has gained an enviable reputation for clean sports and clean playing, and the excellence of his work will best show itself after his boys leave school and enter the real battles of life.

Frankfort High School had two basketball teams this year, a first and second, and was very creditably represented. In the first team were Ray Amos. John Cox, Kenneth Grover, Edward Lefforge, I eon Love, Clarence Mersch, and Gordon Moss, all strong individual players. The boys were greatly hampered by quarantine conditions that existed during a major portion of the season and by a lack of coaching during that time. At the beginning of the school year Mr. Lockhart was in the sendee of our country and Mr. William Gilbert was secured, but he had been in charge of athletics only a short time, when he was attacked by influenza-pneumonia and died. From then on until in January, when Mr. Lockhart was able to return, only the perseverance and determination of a part of the team kept the boys together and in training.
Although the team won but four of sixteen games played, it really was much stronger than its paper record shows. Many of its games were with teams of state championship caliber but in each contest the opposing
team had to wage a real battle in order to win. All the boys will be in school next year with the exception of Moss, who will be lost by graduation. “Mossie” developed into an excellent guard and the team will surely miss him next year.
The record of games won and lost is as follows. Frankfort’s score always coming first: Wingate, 24-14; Kokomo, 9-11; West Lafayette. 18-23; Marion, 21-38; Lebanon, 21-42; Lebanon, 10-36; Kokomo, 8-36; Crawfordsville, 12-57; Thorntown, 11-36; Michigantown, 53-9; Lafayette, 9-53; Crawfordsville, 17-45; Veeders-burg, 32-20; Flora, 15-13; Lebanon. 6-31.
The second team was one of the gamest Frankfort High School ever had. In trying to help condition the
first team, the second string of boys learned how to fight and to contend with fellows of greater weight and superior basketball knowledge. This bunch of boys, consisting of Foster Goff, William Goodwin, Paul Innis, John Moss, Robert Shanklin and Gerald Skidmore, well represented Frankfort and gained the reputation of being one of the best second teams in Central Indiana. This bunch of youngsters were so good that, next year, some of the first team will have to put forth their greatest efforts if they retain their places.
The record of the second team this season, Frankfort score given first, is the following: Kokomo, 13-4; Flora, 13-16; Russiaville, 19-16; Kokomo, 7-5; New London, 15-31; Scircleville, 24-9.
Track and Field
Our track and field work this year promises greater success than that of last year, simply because of the spirit which is backing it. More fellows have actually tried out this year than in the past three years and all are enthusiastic over the prospects.
Aughe, Harker, Childress, and Love are the old track men and will each win his share of the points this year. Aughe runs the half and quarter mile races, Harker and Love enter mainly into the points in the 120 yard high hurdles, and Childress in the pole vault. Others who look promising are Ned Coapstick, Foster Goff, Clarence Mersch, Fred Shaffer, Russel Strong, Cecil Moore, Harry Mitchell, Paul Campbell. Robert Hiner, Paul Swackhamer
and Lee Lowdermilk. Coapstick and Goff are making good time in the mile, Merch and Lowdermilk in the quarter, Shaffer and Strong in the dashes, and Moore in the low hurdles. Moore also broad jumps. The “Cauldron” goes to press too soon for the men to be named who are to represent our school.
The track meets scheduled with other high schools for this season are as follows:
Triangular Meet, April 26—at Crawfordsville.
Indianapolis Meet, May 2—Technical High School.
Central Indiana Meet, May 10—at Crawfordsville.
Sectional Meet, May 17—Crawfordsville.

Under the leadership of Messrs. Hickman, Hough, McClure, and Lockhart, the tournament was a distinct success. Well considered plans were formulated and adhered to. The teams were well cared for and all visitors made to feel at home. Many complimentary things were said by players and visitors and the meet was generally regarded as the best and most satisfactory yet held in this district.
For the first time the meaning and importance of basketball were brought home to the people of Frankfort, and a desire could be heard expressed on every hand, during and after the tournament, for a high school basketball team strong enough to be a real contender for state honors. From this time on both faculty and student body will receive every encouragement possible from the people of Frankfort in basketball affairs.

The Sallie May Byers Prize
The Sallie May Byers Prize, awarded to those most proficient in scholarship, English composition and elocution, was offered for the first time in the spring of 1891. This prize is derived from the interest on a fund given to the Frankfort High School by Mr. Daniel E. Comstock, as a memorial to his betrothed wife, Miss Sallie May Byers, who died a short time before the marriage was to have been solemnized. The names of this generous, cultivated gentleman and this noble, talented woman are thus recalled to generation after generation of grateful students, who find this prize an incentive to greater effort.
Miss Byers, a young woman of unusual ability, was a member of the class of 1876, which was the first class to graduate from the Frankfort High School. Miss Byers, besides being an exceptional student, also possessed considerable talent in elocution, a gift which received just recognition, and was ever at the disposal of the community in which she lived.
Mr. Daniel Comstock is an eastern capitalist who has spent most of his life in New York City. Mr. Comstock’s interest in the construction of the Frankfort and Kokomo Railroad, now known as a part of the Clover Leaf system, brought him to Frankfort, where, fortunately for us, through Miss Byers, he became interested in our High School, to which, in 1891, he gave the sum of one thousand dollars, “to be known forever as the Sallie May Byers Memorial Fund.” The City Council was appointed
trustee, with the proceeds at six per cent to be disposed of annually, forever, in awards of merit. Such interest was manifested the first year in this prize, that in 1892 Mr. Comstock added five hundred dollars to the fund, making a sum of fifteen hundred dollars, one-half of which was to be paid annually in prizes as follows: thirty dollars to the one winning the greatest number of points for “General Scholarship” in his senior year; fifteen dollars to the winner of the second prize in “General Scholarship.” (In 1901 a system of mid-year promotions was adopted in the schools of Frankfort that made it necessary to divide these prizes to award four instead of two scholarship prizes, annually.)
One-fourth of the income from the fund constitutes the Sallie May Byers Prize for elocution, “to be awarded to those evidencing the greatest elocutionary ability at a public performance.” The time, place, and judges, are selected annually, by the faculty of the high school. The first prize is fifteen dollars and the second is seven dollars and a half.
One-fourth of the income from the fund is paid in Sallie May Byers prizes for “English Composition.” awarded to those “evidencing the greatest ability in the writing of English Composition.” Members of the graduating class who have attended Frankfort High School for at least one year previous to graduation are eligible to this contest. The basis of the composition is the subject matter obtained from the reading of a book specified by the faculty of the Frankfort High School.

Resignation of Sam G. Berryman
I, S. Gerald Berryman, having been to the full extent of my belief, railroaded into the most measilv and unimportant office of Assistant Joke Editor, do hereby and forthwith and without ceremony whatsoever, resign from that position, accordingly, therefore, not being a member of the said Cauldron Staff thereafter. And furthermore, will not under any consideration whatsoever, be induced by any person or thing to return to such an office. Also, that I have, and am much more interested in poems and cartoons than in mere jokes; do consider that the person, whosoever he may be, has made a grave mistake, thereby. And I, having resigned from my most humble position as Assistant Joke Editor, will not
deem it my duty whatsoever, to accumulate jokes beyond my personal use and enjoyment and that all my poems and cartoons will be kept in similar order. The office of Assistant may be filled by a most ignorant person; accordingly, having been insulted by whomsoever appointed me to such a measily office, I do demand amends in my behalf.
Therefore, I. S. Gerald Berryman, do wish you success in your great enterprise, without my cooperation.
I resign for the following reasons:—
1st. The office is too measily.
2nd. I was a mere assistant.
3rd. Jokes are not my best line.
4th. I haven’t time to write them all myself.

What Saved the Baby
The family were entertaining callers one afternoon, and while the grown-ups were talking, the baby crept on the floor. Suddenly, there was a loud bump and wild wails. It came from the direction of the piano.
“Oh, the baby has hurt himself!” cried the mother. “Run quick, dear!”
The young father had already dashed toward the piano. He dropped on his knees and groped under the piano for his injured offspring. Presently he returned.
“He fell down and bumped his head on one of the pedals,” he reported.
“Oh, the poor darling! Is it a bad bump?” asked one of the guests.
“No,” he answered, “fortunately, his head hit the soft pedal!”

You know John Coulter’s girl?
When Deac’s away to school She sets John’s brain into a whirl Until he’s made a fool.
But oh, how matters change When Deac comes home to stay!
Poor boy has lost his range,
And Johnny’s cast away.
He tries in vain to get a date;
They are taken a week ahead.
With a heart chuck full of hate,
Poor John goes home, his heart like lead.
Now his heart is full of hate;
Swears he’ll never fall again,
He’d done, forever more, with Kate,
She’s broke his heart in twain.
But when Deac’s gone away, once more John knocks upon her door;
Again unto himself did say,
“Pll just try once more.”
Once more he starts in new.
He knows what he’s a-doin’.
He surely can if he wants to,
But, gosh! Pd get a new’un.

We shouldn’t kick about staying in school, because we at least get to sit down, and the poor seats have to stand all day long and all night, and the pictures hang around, too. The stairs are either running up or down all the time. The floor has a hard time, as it is walked all over, and the roof runs all over the building. The linoleum keeps running up and down the aisles, making so much racket that we can scarcely study. We should not forget the paint; it sticks around pretty close, too, unless someone takes it off. The doors have a playful time, hs they get to swing all day, but the poor dictionary gets turned over and over. The piano will play if some one will play with it, but the clock keeps running all the time. The molding running around the room all the time makes the radiator mad, and it is hot all the time. People would think this was an asylum for the blind, to see the blinds hanging around the windows. They can’t see how the rest of us suffer, though. Our ceiling is one of the most expensive things, it is so high. The chandeliers are not so heavy when the bulbs are a light. We have few bright pupils, but most of the stars are in the service flag. If we should have a fire, the building wouldn’t bum up; it would bum down, and the fire escape. We treat our pictures something fierce, for we hang all of them on the walls. The youngest member of our school is Miss Calendar. as she is not quite five months old yet. We have some very dirty things up here. The board is black all the time, no matter how much we wash it. We can’t beat up on the curtain until we get it down, and we never know when the inks well. The railing is a nuisance, running up and down the starway all the time.

Stafford Engravings are Used in this Annual Because of Quality - and Service
You will find our engravings in a great number of the high-class year books that are published throughout the United States. We have a department which specializes in making halftones, color plates, zinc etchings, art work and designs for college and school publications. We use the famous Levy Acid Blast process, which produces halftones that print far better than plates made in the ordinary way, and which greatly aids the printer in making an artistic success of his work.
In order to cooperate with our customers more closely, we have prepared a valuable book “Engraving for College and School Publications,” which we loan to the staff of every publication which uses Stafford Engravings. This book contains 164 pages and over 300 illustrations, and will be of great assistance in simplifying ordering, in preventing costly mistakes and in securing highest quality engraving at lowest cost. This helpful book is not sold— simply loaned to Stafford customers.
We also specialize in Commencement Invitations; Fraternity, Sorority and Club Stationery; Visiting Cards, and other Copper Plate Engraving and Steel Die Embossing. Samples with Prices on Request.
