In Appreciation ,
HE SENIOR CLASS of 1919 wish to thank all those who aided in any way in the publication
of our "Cauldronf' 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 ren-
dered 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 L'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.

CLASS FRIIIPII II Y
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.
Twcn ty-Nin c
I arrived in Frankfort, it seemed so good,
Tall buildings all around me stood.
I 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.
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, feel-
ing 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, pro-
ceeded to investigate the great work thereof.
Magnificent residences lined the street. At one fine
home we stopped and rang the bell. Much to my bewilder-
ment, 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, enjoy-
ing 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 seeas 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 my seat in the
car, I saw many familiar names, such as Allen Sz Aughe,
Undertakersg Denton 8z Stair, Beauty Parlors. The build-
ing 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 Sz
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 8: Van-
Eaton rhubarb pie factory, which Sam said, did a thriv-
ing business keeping Charles Emery and Frank Kirkpat-
rick full of pie. These men had retired, after building
two business blocks, and began loafing, especially around
the Sheets Sz 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
We drove on past a magnificent building built by the
Benjamin 85 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. by calling him a little rascal. The lawyers for
the plaintiff were Lewis Russell and Herbert Mooreg
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 Vin-
cent, sitting in their seats staring at me. They may have
recognized me, I know not. As the trial went on, Police-
woman, Blanche Hardin, brought the quivering prisoner
to the stand. His appearance was so heart-rending that
I was forced to leave. Sam was so interested in the trial
he did not see me go.
I 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 Leslie," 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 play-
ers were all women, and Besse Spray took the part of
Macbeth, and Wilhma 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 VanDyke. 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 sud-
den I heard a terrible racket. Down the street came a
suffragette parade. Marian Harland was at its head,
beating a dish pang 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 be-
tween Jefferson and Frankfort.
Art and I walked down the street and bought some
bananas of a stand owned by Martha Kersey. As we
T71 irty-0 ll c
came into the aristocratic part of town, a large limousine
sailed past. In it I recognized Ellen Price and Roxie Bar-
nett, going to some swell social function, without a doubt.
We were lazily crossing the street, when a big red speed-
ster came around the cfirner. Helen Berryman was at the
wheel and "Fan" Rockwood 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 Daviesg
this did not astonish me to a great extent as I knew his
abilities in olden times. After Mayor Davies, Superin-
tendent Milne, and myself had had a quiet talk, I de-
parted for the hotel, having decided to stay in Frank-
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 buildg 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.
-Sam Gerald Berryman.

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 stu-
dents might learn more about French life and customs
than would otherwise be possible.
At the organization meeting the officers were elected.
They lvvere: President, Bruce Levvisg Vice-President,
Ninabelle Stairg Secretary, Cornella Kennedyg and Treas-
urer, James Kramer. The president appointed a member-
ship committee, a programme committee, and a name
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 bene-
fit 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 god-
parents, 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, be-
cause of the present interest in France. Even tho' the
club is nevv, there is a great deal of interest taken in it,
and there seems to be a bright future for it.
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
The French Play
The biggest project undertaken by the new French
Club was the presentation of a play, "Les Deux Sourds"
CThe Two Deaf Menj, 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
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
hunting ..,..,.-...-................ Bruce Lewis
A Policeman .... --- Paul Donoho
A Gardener ......... -- ................ Cletis Lemon
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: -

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" activi-
ties it has the power to control, to a large extent, the ar-
rangements for each undertaking of the high school as
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 Harker. 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 de-
tails 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 pub-
lication 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, declama-
tion, 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 mem-
bers, 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.
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
At the first meeting the following officers were
elected for the term: Herbert Moore, president 5 Wilfred
Young, vice-presidentg 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-treasurerg of the Dairy club, Glen
Seaman is chairman and Paul Cue secretary-treasurer.
Each division takes charge of alternate meetings and ar-
ranges 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 yearg Herschell Knapp, who made the highest yield
of corn, 194.3 bushelsj, in this district of twenty coun-
tiesg Halfred Mortsolf and Ralph Elsea, who won two of
the three places on the corn judging team which will rep-
resent this county in a state wide contest at Purdue Uni-
versity on April 23. V
The club was honored by being chosen by Purdue Uni-
versity 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. i
The Mechanical Club
Among the organizations of F. H. S. is a newly or-
ganized club, known as the Mechanical Club. This organ-
ization, though very limited in membership, is very in-
fluential in bringing to its members a spirit of brother-
hood 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 mechan-
ical problems in their meetings, and at the same time find
the pleasure which comes to one who has really accom-
plished that for which he has aimed.

The Sunshine Society, one of the outstanding organi-
zations of the high school, has closed the eighth year and
-in many respects-the most successful year of its his-
tory. 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 ef-
fected by the election of the following officers: Catharine
Crebs, president, Frieda Crawford, treasurer, and Mar-
garet Salkeld, secretary.
These officers lost no time in starting the social func-
tions 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 ex-
pense of sending flowers to so many homes, where there
were both sickness and death, rapidly depleted the treas-
ury. 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 popcorn 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 Do-
mestic Science Department, sold refreshments at the dis-
trict 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 in-
terest 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 j oy
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 entertain-
ments this year, was the minstrel show, which was pre-
sented at the Central Building, February 13th, by the
Sunshine Society girls, under the direction of Kathryn
The stage, which was very attractively decorated in
blue and white, made a pleasing background for the
black-faced girls, dressed in rnen'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.
lVIargaret 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
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-
belle 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 Debate in Frankfort
The Frankfort affirmative met the Lebanon negative in the
Central Auditorium, Frankfort, on the 6th of February. This
was the Frankfort-Lebanon section of the Triangular Debate.
The question, which at that time was of great concern to Amer-
ica, 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 af-
firmative speaker, James McClamroch, who quite effectively
gained attentive hearing from the large audience. He was fol-
lowed by the first negative speaker, who made an impressive
speech by recalling American ideals and traditions. XVilliam
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 Harker, 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.
William Davies, John Cox, Dorsey Pitmang Harry Leslie, Alternate.
The Debate in Cmwfordsfuille
The Triangular Debate in Crawfordsville was between the af-
f. . . . .
lrmative 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 restrict-
ed further the labor markets of the United States would be flood-
ed. They pointed out the actions of the pro-Germans and spies
as examples of the evils of immigration, and in conclusion ad-
vocated that all immigration to this country be stopped for 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 immi-
grants 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.

There is nothing connected with school affairs more
important, and at the same time more generally misun-
derstood, than athletics. To the unthinking pupil, and
to the average fan outside the school, success is evi-
denced solely by the winning of basketball games, the
success on the cinder path, etc. Of course, success in con-
test of any kind is highly desirable as it gives to the stu-
dent body a feeling of great joy and bestows honor upon
the school itself. But the wise Superintendent, the
thoughtful Principal, and the careful, conscientious Ath-
letic 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 up-
building, 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 re-
quired. 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 ath-
letics, 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 car-
riage, 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.

First Tealn, Basketball
Top Row: Kenneth Grover, Gordon Moss, John COX-
Bottom Row: Clarence Mersch, Leon Love, Edward Lefforge, Ray A17105-
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 Grov-
er, Edward Lefforge, Leon Love,
Clarence Mersch, and Gordon Moss,
all strong individual players. The
boys Were greatly hampered by quar-
antine conditions that existed dur-
ing 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 service
of our country and Mr. William Gil-
bert 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 perse-
verance 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" develop-
ed 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, 8-363 Craw-
fordsville, 12-57, Thorntown, 11-36, Michigantown,
53-93 Lafayette, 9-533 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 su-
perior basketball knowledge. This bunch of boys, con-
sisting of Foster Goff, William Goodwin, Paul Innis,
John Moss, Robert Shanklin and Gerald Skidmore, well
represented Frankfort and gained the reputation of be-
ing 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 great-
est 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 "Caul-
dron" 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.
State Meet, May 24-Earlham College, Richmond.

SITTING: Paul Innis, William Goodwin, Gerald Skidmore.
The ninth annual sectional basketball tournament Was
held in Frankfort on the 7th and 8th of March, 1919.
As is Well known, this was for the purpose of selecting
a team to represent this section of the state at the State
Meet held at Purdue University on the 13th, 14th and
15h of March, 1919. The games resulted as follows:
Flora, 13, Frankfort, 15.
Kirklin, 3, Lebanon, 54.
Burlington, 4, Thorntown, 48.
Delphi, 10, Rossville, 20.
Colfax, 4, Advance, 34.
Cutler, 7, Bringhurst, 15.
Scircleville, 6, Zionsville, 32.
Frankfort, 6, Lebanon, 21.
Rossville, 7, Thorntown, 53.
Bringhurst, 7, Advance, 30.
Lebanon, 13, Zionsville, 14.
Thorntown, 26, Advance, 6.
Thorntown, 22, Zionsville, 9.
Under the leadership of Messrs. Hickman, Hough,
McClure, and Lockhart, the tournament was a distinct
success. Well considered plans were formulated and ad-
hered 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
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 stu-
dent 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 elocu-
tion, 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, cul-
tivated gentleman and this noble, talented woman are
thus recalled to generation after generation of grateful
students, who find this prize an incentive to greater ef-
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 pos-
sessed considerable talent in elocution, a gift which re-
ceived 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 Ko-
komo 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, fif-
teen dollars to the winner of the secon.d prize in "Gen-
eral Scholarshipf' fln 1901 a system of mid-year pro-
motions was adopted in the schools of Frankfort that
made it necessary to divide these prizes to award four
instead of two scholarship prizes, annually.J
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.

I, S. Gerald Berryman, having been to the full extent
of my belief, railroaded into the most measily and unim-

forthwith and without ceremony whatsoever, resign
from that position, accordingly, therefore, not being a

furthermore, will not under any consideration whatso-
ever, be induced by any person or thing to return to such
an office. Also, that I have, and am much more interest-
ed 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, ac-

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 ped-
als," 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
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 J ohnny'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 Deacis gone away, once more
John knocks upon her door,
Again unto himself did say,
"I'll 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! I'd 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 for-
get the paint, it sticks around pretty close, too, unless
someone takes it off. The doors have a playful time, as
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 burn up,
it would burn 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 Cal-
endar, as she is not quite five months old yet. VVe 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.

I never glare or glower.

I simply love to talk and talk,
I think I say some clever stuff.
My greatest cross in life is this,
I don't get listened to enough.

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 through-
out 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.
We also specialize in Commencement Invitations, Fraternity, Sorority
In order to cooperate with our customers more
closely, We have prepared a valuable book "Engrav-
ing for College and School Publicationsf' 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 assist-
ance 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.
