Pane Two ruwEr mw p T FOREWORD To give the students of Franklin a representative book reflecting in so far as possible the character and talent of the school, has been the purpose of the Staff in editing this issue of The Post. Our grateful appreciation is due the Portland Rotary Club, who so kindly loaned us the cuts of the beautiful Oregon scenes in this book. We especially thank the Student Body for their loyal support, and also Mrs. Thurston and Kingsley Harris for their services.

A large group of very ver- dant first-termers first entered Franklin on that day. Most of them were timid souls who respectfully inquired of their elders as to where they should go. Some bold spirits, having already been informed, strolled indifferently down the halls looking for the famous Franklin elevator. The next day the real fun began. We were registered in the rooms across the Gym and now started to our respective classes for the first time. Flushed and confused, we nevertheless did our best and bravely waded through that first awful maze of bells and num- bered rooms. As time went on we became accustomed to our new duties and even began to show signs of dawning intelligence, in our classes. The following January we became second termers. Perhaps no one else appreciated the dignity of our position, but we knew we were one term nearer to our goal. During this term we girls gave a party in honor of the first termers. It was the first party of its kind held in Franklin and our class felt quite gratified to think that it had been the sponsor of the first " Freshie party. " On the next September, 1920, we Sophomores took a great deal of pleasure in looking over the new students in the Gym. We laughed at them mercilessly, having already forgotten our similar experience not so long past. In th ' s year our class acquired its well-known " school spirit. " Our athletic teams did very well and we backed them witli all the lung-power we could muster. Then came our Junior year. We were quite well known by then and were taking part in many different organizations and activities. •Many of our girls joined the newly-formed Girls ' League, and in it did valuable work. The hoys were making names for themselves in ath- letics at the same time. All the while we ploughed steadily ahead in our studies with Seniordom ahead as our goal. At last in the fall of ' 22 we returned to school as Seniors. We had little time row to devote to patronizing the Freshies. But we admit that it did give us a little glow of sat ' sfaction to think how far we were above that lowly state. We worked hard and earned our reward. The June Class of ' 23 was organized early in the term. How pridefully did we inform our friends id ' the fact. Paul Walgren was elected President, Anna Young, Vice President; Donna Jenkins, Sec- Page Thirty-Four retary; Paul Coimet, Treasurer; Howard Stanley, Sergeant-at-arms, and Miss Howard, our Faculty Advisor. Under such able leaders it is no wonder we were able to be an active class. In order to know each other we first held a jolly get-together party. We spent a lively evening playing games and dancing. Every- one pronounced it a great success. Now that we were all acquainted we felt we would be able to do great things together. In order that the school in general might become aware of our existence we held a " Kid day " and sold balloons. It was a funny sight, those haughty seventh-termers parading about in pinafores and rompers. At an early meeting we appointed Perry Avery editor of our Post. Then the staff was selected and they began work in real earnest, with Miss MacKenzie as advisor. Next the Class basketball stars challenged the Jan. ' 23 class to a game. The Jan. ' 23 class put up a stiff fight but were finally con- quered by the Seniors. About this time, little, blunt, gold F ' s began to appear on the persons of the Seniors. They were our pins and we were very proud of them. In January we were placed in our final Senior rooms, G-24, 6-26, 6-28, and 6-6. The January ' 23 class had departed and we reigned su- preme. At this time our class inaugurated a new idea. We put out little booklets, the Guide-Post for the new-comers. It gives information con- cerning Franklin and its traditions which every Freshman should know. We held a very successful tag sale in February, of which the pro- ceeds went toward the Post fund. This sale, too, was an original idea with our class. The tags are kept and used as receipts for the Post, their amount being discounted from the regular price. The class showed its support for the Post by giving a " barn- dance, " the proceeds of which went for the Post. This was called the Postumble and was declared to be one of the best dances given by Franklin. Early in the term our class play, " Mice and Men, " was selected by a capable committee under Mr. Harrington. The tryouts were held in March and the east selected. Loud Clothes Day was held late in Mareh. Everyone agreed that it was one of the best of its kind held so far. The costumes were extremely funny.

Administrators : Emma Calouri. JeanetU Ager, Flo n Bailey. Page Thirty-Nine POST Class Prophecy MORNING OREGONIAN, Portland, Oregon, July 20, 1940. Perry D. Avery, Editor. Received from Edison Laboratories. Edna May Hoot, Correspondent. Our great scientist, Theodore Barber, considered the wizard of all times, sometime ago perfected the release of gravitation, and built a wonderful air ear, " The Boomerang, " with which he made success- ful demonstrations. The second of -Tune, 1932, he arranged his first passcngvr trip, and as guests invited all of his June ' 23 classmates. They nearly all put in an appearance except Alvin Culley, who is in India; Frank White, now our present day poet; Barbara Blythe, who is starring with the famous film company of Millie Backen Emma Calouri ; and Howard Dilg, who as governor of Oregon did not feel he could get away, since legislature was in session. The car left the earth June 15, wtih amazing speed, but through som e unknown reason has not returned. Astronomers, Leonard Wiley and Beatrice Hanscom, estimated the car was about 80,000 miles from the earth, when last sighted. Yesterday evening we received, by radio, the following- message. This is the first authentic message ever receivd from Mars. Franklinville, Mars, S. K. Y. Day 407, Year 9783. Charles Savage, Prof. Radio Science, Franklin High School, Portland, Oregon. You all no doubt remember when " The Boomerang " left earth eight years ago, with a number of the June ' 23 class as passengers. Here are the facts. We left earth as gracefully as a bird and Abe Bernstein, our chief mechanic, turned on the graviomes, which released the earth ' s gravity from us. Through some failure of the height-meter, to register our alti- tude we traveled completely away from the earth ' s attraction, and found ourselves flying through space. At first we were panic stricken, and Anna Young became exceedingly alarmed, but we were all soon reconciled, by the cool-headedness of Rose Stone, Lesta Moore, and Audrey Daut, who administered to the unfortunate ones. Ere long we began to marvel at the wondrousness of the heavenly bodies we were passing; stars, meteors, meteorites, and satellites, but Oh! how dangerously near we came to colliding with a nebula. Mary Murray ami Anne Faith made some wonderful sketches of the moon, and Harry Lcavitt secured some marvelous photographs of the craters, owing to the closeness of the view, as we sailed around on side. Page Forty JlJNE T7iiS§SHrposT Four days later, Frances Jones, our outlook, sighted what proved to be Mars, which we were fast approaching. Every few hours Louise Furrer, gravitater, tested for expected attraction and Lois Bolton brought us the news that the graviomes showed we were in the Martian sphere, and ten hours later the car gently settled in a wonderful valley of plains, huge canals, and beautiful gardens. In a few hours we were beseiged by a crowd of the most intelligent humans I had ever seen. They had very even features, small hands and feet, their faces were beautiful, and their hair of a most lovely hue and texture. Their voirces were musical and I have never heard a more perfect language spoken. At first we had considerable trouble in making our wants known, as slang was entirely out of the question. Beatrice Beekman, Ruth Starbuck, Alice Harbert, Thelma Fitch, Helene Curnow, and Vivian Hockman were the first to master the language owing to their former experience, in the language department of Franklin. Narcotics of all descriptions are unknown and much to our joy Paul Connet, William Mahon, and Albert Strauss were forced to give up " Coffin Nails. " Also Mars is a free love world so George Black is blissfully happy. Catherine Goodman, Thelma Grimes, Violet Caldwell, and Beatrice Brummels have taken up the study of aero-traffic regulation, as there is a great demand for traffic-monitors, because the mono-carriers here are thicker than autos on Fifth avenue in N. Y. A few days after our arrival several of our classmates, among whom were Catherine Martin, Elizabeth Donahue and Mildred Fisch collided while Irving to make a flight, with one of the Martian gravicycles. They were all con- siderably shaken up, the former was somewhat flattened, and Ernia Ilampsom came down so swiftly she was buried eight feet under the ground. She was completely recovered the next day, however, owing to Dr. Gordon Pefley with his Coue-practic treatments. The only laws here are sky laws, and they are much more string- ent since " our bunch " arrived, especially Gregoire Haefliger and Harold Ilalvorsen who are very reckless and inexperienced. We do not know what safety first is, on earth, compared to the Martians, and consequently Billy Webb and James Wright find it hard to nego- tiate with their haphazard means of locomotion. Charles Bacon and Leland Baker have built an automobile, the " Lighter. " This is something the Martians have never had, and it dors not seem to take well, because aero-transportation, in the ad- vanced state in which they use it, is so much more efficient. Jeanette Ager, Helen Root, and Mildred Berger are electricity enthusiasts, as electricity is the only motive power, light, and heat. The Martians discarded every other form some 1500 years ago. Pace Forty-One ju Te T91CI£OSX There are the most wonderful fruits and plants on Mars anyone ever saw. Genevieve Bates, Dorothy Bruce, Mabel Else, and Irma Arnold and Elsie Brooks have become enthusiastic horticulturists, and are planning to bring back some wonderful varieties of fruits, un- known to the earth. Theo Powell, Gertrude Richards, Irene Day and Marjory Merrick are spending every minute in the Martian laboratories learning the new process of preparing Nitrogen, and they expect to revolutionize the agricultural industry upon their return. Margaret Pletcher is at her old pastime, studying, but this time it is music. Myrtle Pearson, Selma Schmidt, Helen Wallace, and Evelyn Vaughn are also taking up Martian music which is thousands of years in advance of ours. Harriet Avery, our Franklin violinist, has perfected a most marvelous musical instrument, the violynomia, and has Frank Redman, and James Read, as enthusiastic pupils. For the past three years Vera Colver, Helen Ehlert, Effie Hardin and Ethylle Erhart have been valiantly assisting in the construction of a mammoth gravio-car, in which they expect to return to earth, early in 1942. About twenty-five Martians and their families have volunteered to return to earth with us. Helen Lawson, Esther Rein- holdt, Eleanor Hendricks, Margaret Henderson, and Allyne Richard- son are assisting those desirious, to learn the " English Slanguage. " Allan East and Paul Walgren, observatory managers, just reported that they have located the air car which Left here for Venus a few weeks ago. Dolph Pearson, Sheldon Mills, Gertrude Vessey, Annie Winberg, Hazel Smith, and Richard McGrew, accompanied a group of the Martians on this trip. Judging from their location on the aero- charts, they should land early tomorrow morning. Lyle McCallum was recently appointed Ass ' t Sup ' t of the Trans- Universal airlines which operate between Mars and Venus, with monthly round trips to the moon. Through his experience on these air lines, he is furnishing Lotys Gallagher and Vera Beatrice Frank, with material in compiling a book on Martian Air Science, which they hope will be used as a textbook upon their return. Howard Hughey and Kenneth Mahoney are preparing aero-charts, or maps, for their use when they return. Zanerian Blue, Gladys ( ' rum, Linn Forrest, and Harry Conway have been eagerly watching the Franklin Auditorium grow. They say that it has at last become a reality, as Joseph Liscia, Paul Ludlow, anil Howard Stanley were seen giving the roof its last coat of paint. They also noticed Thomas Walker, and Lawrence Tuttle, inspecting the new cement sidewalks, which have been built in all directions from Franklin. We rejoice that the future Franklinites do not have to swim to school any longer, as we poor unfortunates used to. They also noticed Murl Culbertson going and coming with such regularity they believe she must be teaching there. The observers believe this work was accomplished through the untiring efforts of Malcolm Currie, Donald Updike, and Kingsley Page Forty-Two POST Trenholme, whom they report are on the school board, because they have been seen at the Court House every Wednesday evening for the past year. They have also seen Marjory Weddle, Lois Van Landing- ham and Rachael Smith attending every Parent-Teacher ' s meeting, and know that these improving citizens, looking into the future, did not desire their posterity to graduate, without a suitable auditorium. Yesterday evening Wesley Beck, Margaret Koch, and Ruth Allen went to the Casino, which is owned by Kenneth Baer, to see some special features, in radioscopes, from Venus. Much to their surprise the first picture which met their eyes, was Floy Bailey, in one of her typical Venetian interpretive dances. The next scene was a tragic- comedy featuring Gladys McXish and Arthur Bliss in " Murder by Radio. ' ' This group went to Venus several months ago, and became so interested in the radioscopes, they immediately took up the work. Edward Erdner and Roy Lively have just arrived home from Venus where they have been inspecting the late canals, built under the supervision of Edward Butler. Myrtle Lewis, Thelma Gerdes, Constance Coulter, and Donna Jenkins have been carefully studying the Martian ' s gigantic tele- scopes and refractors, through which we have been able to distinguish you folks, as if only fifty miles away. They hope to be able to repro- duce them on their return, as they are much too large to transport. Irving Brown, our old student body president, is giving a Ball and a Banquet this evening, and Walter Benson ' s famous orchestra is to play. In perusing the " Universal Bulletin " I noticed that Ellis Lake and Harold Keller, who still wear Peon pants, are to make the principal toasts of the evening ; Kenneth Heisler famous basso singer is to entertain with a few selections. Tins is the annual Ball given every year since our arrival to celebrate the anniversary of our grad- uation. In order that I may not be late for any of the festivities I will complete this message.

The dialogue in this play is delightful — really like human speech, dis- tinguished by terse but dignified diction. The plot moreover, although conventional, is developed with a sincerity and intensity of expression that vibrates upon the heart strings of an audience until it responds with smiles and sighs, and tears. One sees the middle-aged Mark Embury, once crossed in love, who has decided that it is his duty to marry. Then follows his choice in a cold, calculating way of the foundling girl Peggy, whom he proceeds to educate according to his ideals. Love between guardian and ward is of course inevitable, and when it comes with whirlwind force one is concerned to observe that Peggy has learned to love a young and impulsive soldier — Embury ' s nephew. Complications of course ensue. But in the end Embury makes the supreme sacrifice — renounces his dreams, and gives the charming Peggy to her youthful lover. Earl Craig interprets the role of Mark Embury with dignity and a fine portrayal of repressed emotions. Roger Goodlake, Embury ' s friend, is well played by Kingsley Trenholme. The rough, boisterous nature of the character is convincingly expressed. Sheldon Mills is a pronounced success as the gallant ( ' apt. Lovell, while the characters of the gay Sir Harry Trimblestone and Mincing Kit are well portrayed by Gordon Pefley and Frank White. Harry Leavitt is an amusing Peter, Alvin Culley is delightfully funny as the pompous Beadle, Helen Lawson is a winsome maid. Marvel-Dare Fellows a precise and busi- ness-like matron of the Foundling Hospital. Emma Calouri gives a splendid interpretation of Mrs. Deborah-, a lady of prodigious pedi- gree, while Mary Murray cleverly portrays the frivolity of the beauti- ful Mrs. Goodlake. Peggy is Barbara Blythe. This difficult role is acted with an ingenious artistry that makes one see, as in reality, the bewilderingly charming personality of sweet Peggy.

Although it is made up of hundreds of live, enthusiastic students, they are all living in little spheres of their own, and though constantly coming in contact with each other, I hey do not linger long enough to exchange ideas or organize themselves into a compact group. The only time their thoughts arc centered on one thing is at the time of eleeti if Student Body officers, v.h they elect, then promptly forget. The only officer the members see is the president, as he stands before them -hopelessly alone, and far from those whom he is attempt- ing to lead. How are these faults to he remedied? How arc the stu- dents of Franklin to he united in a group that will he supreme over all others? The Student Council is the medium through which these ends are to he gained. It is composed of a president and a secretary- treasurer from each registration room. This is the most truly repre- sentative body Franklin has ever had, for not only is each room rep- resented, hut every class of students as well. The president of the Student Body acts as its president and the other officers are elected from the members of the council each term. For this term the officers are : Irving Brown, president; Sheldon Mills, vice president; Yone Shiuioni ura, secretary; Sylvia Seymour, editor; Wallace McCallum, sergeant-at-arms : Mrs. Wilson, faculty advisor. It is the Student Council that really knows the demands of the student body and it is the Student Council that will answer them. Its field is unlimited, its powers are great, and its future bright indeed.

The initiation of new members coming in this term was held March 28th, when about seventy-five girls went through the beautiful and im- pressive ceremony, put on by the following: Sylvia Seymour as Charac- ter; Dolores Shand, Scholarship; Cora Allen, Leadership; Lesta Moore, Service; and Elizabeth Prideaux, Virginia Mahon, Florence Bum- gardner, and Elaine Stokes as conductresses. Aundrey Daut, presi- dent, also had an important part in the initiation. The St. Patrick ' s party and the April Frolic were two important social events of the term, which were given by the League, and were in personal charge of Mary Murray and Donna Stever, respectively. A silver loving-cup is presented each term by the League, to the girl in Franklin ranking first in character, scholarship, leadership and service. The first term the cup was presented, June, 1922, it was won by Anna DeWitt; in .January, 1923, Sadie Read received it. Mrs. Ella Ehmsen Wilson, dean of girls, sponsors the League.

Those who had receiving sets were admitted as active members, those who had no set were associate members. A table was made by the manual training department for use as a code table for those wishing code practice. At that time there were no operators in the club. At the present time there is one commercial and eleven amateur operators. To make this one of the most up-to-date clubs, talks and theories of the day are given at the meetings. Mr. Forrest La Viollette, ex- operator of Station KPH, has given a number of interesting talks. The club has had several social gatherings.

Page Seventy-Five Music MULTNOMAH FALLS JUNE ' T POST History By GLADYS McNISH The Music Department of Franklin High School is fortunate enough to have for its head Mr. Robert B. Walsh who came to us in tin ' fall of 1916 at which time our Music Department was organized. Among the classes offered were those in harmony, history of music, care of the voice, sight reading, the hoys and girls glee club and mixed choruses. Many new features have since been added and the classes which are now offered to all Franklin students are among the best in the state. The results of the department have been, as you all know, so good as to occasion the Oregon Musical Association to adopt this course as a model for high schools. The first opera which Mr. Walsh directed in Franklin was the " Pirates of Penzance, " in the gymnasium of Franklin. The success of the presentation was attested by the large crowd which witnessed ils performance. The chorus sang with a precision seldom heard in amateur performances, eliciting much favorable comment. This opera scored such a success that the following year the de- partment decided to continue its efforts in the field of opera. The " .Mikado " was next undertaken, and was both a delight and a sur- prise to the large audience that enjoyed it. The performance was creditable to all concerned in its production, especially Mr. Walsh, as il proved to be a splendid attestation of his theory, " Music is inherent in the American people and needs only proper direction to develop it. " The year 1920 marks another production of the Franklin High School Opera Association; the presentation of " Pinafore. " This was the third of the Gilbert and Sullivan masterpieces presented by the Association. As in the instance of the other two productions, this one also played before a large and appreciative audience. An elaborate scenic investiture and picturesque costuming preserved the tradition of the opera, and painstaking fidelity to the score enhanced the pro- duction. During the following year owing to the absence of our director no opera was attempted. On his return from France Mr. Walsh decided on a revival of " The Pirates, ' ' with a much larger cast than was used upon the first pre- sentation. This revival was greeted by a characteristically large and enthusiastic audience. The spring of 1922 marked an important epoch in Franklin. " The Wooing and Death of Minnehaha, " an Indian operetta, with prologue and two acts, was composed by George Black, a pupil in harmony and composition in the Music Department. This was presented as a thesis for graduation. Critics say that " viewed from three angles the pro- duction revealed ingenuity in construction, musical idea and the in- terpretative instinct. " Mr. Black ' s work is very creditable and it re- ceived favorable criticism in all local papers. P a k e Seventy-Nine jUNE " n flMlM FPO S T The Glee Clubs One of the largest classes in the Music Department is the Girls ' Glee Club. This year the registration is the largest in the history of the department. In the two sections there are 120 students. Not only is there quantity but there is also quality as attested by the mu- dition of " The Gondoliers. " The Girls ' Glee Club is not alone in this for the Boys ' Glee Club is correspondingly large and contains a better balance of voices than the department has known for some time. The Orchestra Franklin High School is extremely fortunate in having for its Orchestra director, Mr. Carl Denton who is nationally known as an orchestra leader. The orchestra has a better balance of instruments and is larger than it has ever been before. In all student affairs it is always in demand. The orchestra ' s first appearance this term was at the musical assembly, in which a number of selections were played and highly applauded by the students. It has appeared before the public in cooperation with the Senior Class play, high school vaudevilles and entertainments given by the clubs of Franklin. One of the most important in the history of the orchestra this year was the accompaniment of the opera, " The Gondoliers. " The personnel of the orchestra is : Violin— Pauline Wolf. Morris Wolf, Lloyd Frank, Elizabeth Ball, Mary Pauline Ten Eyck, Lillian Ellingsworth, Elizabeth Chapelle, Mil- dred Nelson, Luella Stretch, Clarke Walsh, Ethylle Erhart, Millicent Smith, Logan Read, Vera Smith, Cara Ash, Winona Flanders, Rene Polworth, Caroline Schwertzer, Claudys Walker, Pauline Barbee, Mil- dred Williams, James Shell, Elberta Dean, Alice Simonsen, Harry Schenk, Eliot Michelsen, Georgia Lasley, Ernest Rosenberry. Cornet — Clayton Quigley, Delmar Mitchelson, Le Roy Ramsdell. Cello — Leon Pollock. Saxaphone — Kenneth La Violette. Drums — Olive Ash. Piano — Vera Beatrice Frank, Dorothy Leaman. The Opera The spring of 1923 showed the Music Department again in the operatic field. The Gilbert and Sullivan opera, " Gondoliers, " was given in the Franklin gymnasium. Friday. April 20. The cast was well chosen and the entertainment was a delight from beginning to end. This play was easily the most ambitious production attempted by a high school chorus in this city. In fact, there were authorities who expressed a doubl as to the possibility of a creditable performance of this play being staged by such amateurs as comprise a high school chorus. However, the entire audience stated that the presentation was not only creditable ; but it was highly meritorious. Page Eighty JUNE w POST All of the details were perfestly carried out, producing the most per- fect harmony and blending of the whole. Members of our own orchestra, with two pianists, Frank Alex- ander, and Naomi Wiley furnished the accompaniment which added greatly to the pleasure derived from the production. The exquisite charm and beauty of the girls and the dashing ap- pearance of the gondoliers attest the wizardry of Mr. Curtis and .Mrs. Thurston with the pencil and brush. Page Eighty-One Literary ONEONTA GORGE june " TOUSOr p o s t A Fox Hunt By ROY LIVELY I HAD considered myself lucky ; I imagined 1 was blessed by some divine power. That time is past. I am older now. I have attended a fox hunt. I shall never attend another. My doctor would not permit it — neither should I be in favor of such a move — I moved quite enough at the hunt. I believe I shall settle down and become a hermit. The sight of a horse or dog makes me hysterical ; at mention of a fox I become ill — no, deathly sick. I was assigned a lean, raw-boned, stubbed-tail horse, rather a tornado. True I was, indeed, carried away by the results of the hunt. That is, I rode away but I was carried back. I didn ' t care particularly. They found me in a glen looking for ferns and murmuring, " Who am I? " They say 1 have a feeling way about me; I have, I felt the ground meet me six different times when my horse went one way and I an- other. My horse was very impressive. He impressed me strongly, plainly, legibly. A right hoof to the face ami my hitherto Grecian nose was changed to Roman. The impression is still evident although six of my teeth aren ' t. The Pox is a small animal that is civilized that it may become wild. It is very destructive: I have been unable to attend business for three weeks and my doctor suggested a couple of hundred dollars would fix up the broken bones, and would be sufficient to grace my form with two coats of adhesive plaster. The Fox is also very durable. I am told he is stuffed away in a dresser drawer at the end of a hunt and, sprinkled with a few moth balls, he keeps in perfect con- dition until the next hunt the following year. The application of a little horse liniment, rubbed on its joints accompanied by a dose of Tanlac, will put the Pox into good condition. The dogs are a combination of jackal ami sleuth hound. Their barking serves to dispell homesickness as well as keeping them from getting lost. They are extremely brave; it is actually recorded that as few as forty of their members have attacked a Fox. They run side- wise to give them an advantage in turning and fleeing from the rage of this vociferous animal, should they think that duty called them home. At last we were ready to go — the Fox was run around the barn a couple of times to increase his enthusiasm and was then released with a parting uplifting kick. I mounted my docile steed; that is, I gained the top of the beast without mishap. I gripped the saddle and prayed for help and guid- ance. The hounds were released and witli one parting look at the life I was to leave behind — our journey started. How I pitied Paul Revere. He well deserved a reward from his country. My thoughts came to an abrupt close. My horse had shifted direct from low into high. He bolted, I clove, he stopped — I extricated myself from out his mane. Resuming former speed we went: I went out of the saddle, Page Eighty-Five slapped myself in the face reaching for him ;m l twined myself around ' a tree. My friends captured the brute — alas, I hoped he had left the country. I mounted, rather was assisted into a sitting posture on deck, whence I went first to the port side and then to the starboard. .My torse wouldn ' t stay still long enough for me to become acquainted. with the different parts of his anatomy over which I traversed. The Fox had left. 1 bore no resentment against him for I, too, would Like to have left. My horse also left — he left me in a condition for a hospital. The doctor has prescribed an absolute rest. He needn ' t have. 1 shall never be able to move agaiu. A friend just dropped in in present me with my right optic, saying he had found it on a cherry tree — and I remembered that I had passed through it very informally. (That was another place where my mount and I dis- agreed, lie had gone his way and I mine.) But my wild days are over:. they said I was a high flier at the hunt — and I admit my form was intermingling with the clouds at times. I realize now that I am a home, peace loving man; terra firma has come to mean much to me — I couldn ' t bear to leave it again, for the fact is — I can ' t even move. A Visitor By CHESTER FLANDERS It was a warm day in spring. The students were nodding sleepily in their seats, only showing signs of being awake when they were called upon to recite. I felt hot and uncomfortable and decided to go outside for fresh air. I arose and walked out of the room, and for Strangely enough, when I got outside it was noon. The students some reason the teacher said nothing. were racing for the cafe and the " Dog " house. My attention was immediately attracted by a portly, benevolent-looking man of middle age, wearing an antiquated flapped waistcoat, knee breeches with large glass buckles, a wig. a three-cornered hat. and carrying a heavy gold headed cane. He was walking about looking things over with con- siderable interest. As he strolled through the inner court he looked at a spot in the middle of the empty grass plot and sighed deeply. He brightened up, however, as a couple of pedagogish looking girls passed him ani- matedly discussing the statue fund. He walked across the road, saying something under his breath when one of his shoes pulled off in the mud, and stopped him in front of the " Dog House. " lie seemed much surprised at the mob trying to get in and inquired anxiously why they didn ' t read the Riot Act. but none but me seemed to notice him. Finally, when the crowd thinned a little, he went inside. He came out smiling, and evidently understood, for he had a bottle of Whistle in one hand, and a hot dog in the other. He remarked, " Oh, well, youth must be served. " and Page Eighty-Six juNE fTJiigrr sT strolled back to school, stopping- occasionally to listen to the conver- sation of the various groups of students winch, at times, seemed to puzzle him greatly. Still no one seemed to see him. He gazed in horror at a pair of flappers and leaned weakly against a telephone pole when one of them stopped to powder her nose and the other pro- ceeded to re-roll her hosiery. When he had recovered he strolled on, pausing to look curiously at a pair of " peon pants. " I missed him for a minute or two and when I next saw him he was standing at the main door watching the students as they came in. Hearing one of them ask another if he were going to the yell-rally, he looked thoughtful and remarked, " I ' ll have to attend one some day and see what it ' s like. " Finally, he drew an old silver turnip from his waistcoat pocket, compared it witli the school clock and said, " That clock ' s gone haywire again. " He replaced the watch and strolled off, looking, on the whole, rather pleased. As he turned to go I recognized him. It was Benjamin Franklin himself. I was gazing after him in surprise when I received a dig in the back from the boy behind me and woke up — to see the grins of my class mates, and the teacher giving me a " U. " The Mystery of the Missing Money I had been sent out by my boss to the little North Dakota station on the Canadian Pacific railroad to pay off the section crew which had been working for the past month. With me 1 carried eight hun- dred dollars. As this was a very lonely and desolate spot with only the boss and a few hands as companions I had my fears as to what would happen to me if anyone knew I had the money. As I was put- ting it in the safe that stood in the corner I looked over my shoulder. Some one was looking at me through the window. As I turned, tin- face disappeared. I went out instantly and 1 beheld a heavily built man walking down the track. I went back and bolted the door heavily, I saw to it that all the shutters were closed and bolted. For the third time I went back and examined the safe to see that every- thing was just right. Then I felt safe but still there lingered in my mind that horrid square-shouldered man. Soon it grew dark and I began to prepare for bed. As I blew out the lights I thought I heard a slight noise at the door. I immediately jumped for my revolver and ran to the door. Unbolting it 1 peeled out into the darkness. Everything was as serene and calm as could be, no square-shouldered man could be seen. I stepped out of my shack and cautiously tiptoed around to the back. There, as in front, every- thing was quiet and still. Looking out over the wide expanse of sand nothing could be seen but desolation and solitude. All the hands had retired and I seemed to be the only living creature in the settlement. At last I returned, thinking for once 1 was fooled, and after all 1 de- cided it was just the rising wind. Page Eighty-Seven june IW5inrp o s t I was very tired as I had driven hard that day, so I soon fell asleep. About twelve o ' clock 1 awoke with a start to find myself sitting up in bed. I made a thorough search, and finding nothing wrong, went to bed again. The next morning when I awoke I found my mind thinking of my $800.00. I immediately sat up and examined the room. The door was bolted and the windows tightly shut. The safe was locked, but when I went to it I found that the safe had been opened and the money was gone. 1 did uot know what to do. I soon found they had a constable in town, however, and reported the loss to him. lie promised to do everything he could to trace the man I had seen looking in the window. After I had wired to headquarters I faced a restless afternoon. I simply could not work. That night I went to bed at half past eight after a trying day. No signs of the man had been found. I slept poorly for I dreamt of robbers and square-shouldered men gazing at me from every nook and corner. In the morning I was surprised to find that seventy-five dollars of my own money was missing. I had put it behind a large clock, because I thought it would lie safe there. I told the constable. He shook his head for he was greatly puz- zled. The road detective came to my station to take the case in hand. He had several bloodhounds to trace the man I had seen. But they found no trace of him so they returned to the hotel discouraged. After he had gone I thought that perhaps there was a cellar below the depot. There was a trap door in the floor so 1 went down with a lantern. To my disappointment there was nothing but some old lumber. That night my watch and revolver were taken. In the morning 1 reported it to the detective. He did not know what to think of it. There had been no one around the depot since the man I had seen, and the case was indeed strange. The next night the detective hid himself in a large tool box in the corner where he could see everything that went on in the room. Falling asleep, I dreamed of a man going to a safe; I followed he opened the safe and took the money. When he saw me he seized me, he was shaking me vigorously when 1 awoke. I was standing in the middle of the waiting room with the detective at my side laughing. I gazed at him in wonderment. " Well, " he said, " the mystery is solved. You are a sleepwalker. " I could hardly believe my ears as I heard this, but nevertheless it was so. I found everything in the morning. The money and other valuables were in an old drinking fountain at the back.

By CLAIRE SCALLON The cool breeze that came through the open windows of the school library played among the curls on Ruby Bang ' s golden head. As it played thus, the door opened and a youth came into the quiet room, and Ruby glancing over her shoulder, wrinkled her pretty brow with a frown. Meanwhile, on the other side of the room, Jim Davis sat at the long table in front of the librarian ' s desk. His head was bent over a large book, and his eyes were fastened upon a few black letters which ordinarily spelled " REVOLUTION " but to him only one word was written, and that was " RUBY. " No matter how he tried, In- thought and saw Her, and Her only. Suddenly he began repeating to himself, " Bunker Hill was fought in 1775, Bunker Hill was fought in 1577 — Gee! what a stunning way she has of holding her head. But what ' s the use, she never notices me. When. — where was I: ' Oh. yes, that Bunker business. " Matters on the other side of the room, were not so favorable.

He sure is big and awkward, even if he is the finest athlete in school. Just the same I hate him; I wish he ' d leave the room.

I simply loafht peanut butter. Ugh! In English class we had to get a new book and if there is anything left from paying the gas bill, my money will be all gone. I felt very faint until she made the announcement that Edgar Allen Poe would be our subject for tomorrow. I brightened up immediately because we have his biography. I saw my earrings come back a ain a little way. When I went down town there I met the original catastrophe. My earrings were Gone! I decided I might as well pay the gas bill. I shall weep pretty soon. I had better stop. This has been a sad day. Oct. 19. Dear Diary : Well ! I paid that blamed gas bill and bought that book. Received Mother ' s grateful thanks. Some comfort anyway. Oct. 20. Dear Diary : I am perfectly, absolutely, and completely happy in that calm state of joy which takes an elephant to jar it from you. It ' s one- thirty now by the clock, in the afternoon. The mail has just come and in it was a package — for me. I was thrilled. Packages don ' t come every day in my life. Could it be possible. I possible but not probable. I reflected i that Aunt Mary had sent me a pair of Earrings. Xo! it was probably a pink tie ; she has sent me one annually for six years. I have quite a collection. Anyway I opened the package post-hast and in it was. Oh ! dear to my eyes. Earrings ! The darlingest pair I ever hope to see. I shall put them on now and go down town. I can ' t wait any longer. Later: I ' m cured of wanting earrintrs forever and ever and ever. It s nine now. I have worn my earrings up town. As I passed a corner I happened to notice two girls standing there with earrings on just like min e but. oh. they were different from me. this isn ' t a ease- like the Pharisee had either . I never was powdered and painted like they were. That set me to thinking. Wearing earrings puts me in about the same class, doesn ' t it. As I passed " n the breeze floated back a faint, derisive giggle. That decided me concerning the fate of my earrings. I wore them home, unfastened them, carefully laid them on their satin bed. I have never worn them since and I never shall. I will give them to my children to " " dress up " with. In pace reqtueseat .

Becket. and the many people who went each year to visit it. So, in the early part of April. I prepared for the journey. I intended to leave London at the same time as the group in which Chaucer was going, but would arrive at Canterbury about two days ahead of him, for I was travel- ing in my 1923 model Stutz roadster. After my arrival at Tabard Inn. London. I was sitting calmly be- fore the great open fire-place, when the door opened. As I was in- terested in the ' " Morning Oregonian. " I did not look up at first: in- deed, not even till I began to realize that the room was filling up. Then I saw around me a Knight, a nun and her escort, and a monk. Then a friar entered, smiled on us. and sat down. The next one to enter was a miller, who walked boldly to the fire, sat in the handiest chair, and put his feet up into my lap. Of course I got out from under them. Now entered a merchant and a clerk from Oxford. When these had settled down I decided to start some excitement. I quietly drew my forty-five Colt ' s " Frontier Model " revolver from its holster, loaded it. and shot one bullet into the fire. Then followed a space of excited talking and shouting before a sergeant of the law came in. Now all was silent. After this last person, there came a group of five men. They were so similarly dressed that my curiosity immediately began to stir. Finally I asked " Who are those people, anyway? " Of course I spoke in a whisper, and to a nearby friend, who answered. " Those? Why. they are just tradesmen! " From their conversation I figured that these men were a car- penter, a haberdasher, a weaver, a dyer, and a tapicer. On my asking what a tapicer ' s business was. my friend remarked, without looking up from his book. " Don " t know, but it sounds like a taxicab driver. " Then entered a parson and a plowman, brothers — but what a con- trast in appearance! As they were talking about the best equipment for farming. I ventured. " For plowing, I think nothing can beat the Fordson tractor. " The plowman answered. " Well, my oxen are doing me very well, as yet. " 8 ddenly we were disturbed by the sound of a tin can being thrown violently down a rough street. I jumped up and looked out the window to see who had spilled the beans. There I saw, across the pavement from the inn. old Chaucer himself, patiently working at a Ford that had automatically parked itself around a tree.

The hazy night is full of love, While the moonbeams shine and gleam, And sages watch the stars above, And poets gaze and dream. But back once more I go away, And wonder if these dreams will stay. Evolution By KENNETH BAER The first era of our high school career is known in history as the stone age. During this epoch our heads are composed of small rocks on the general principle of the Xphynx. During this era few im- pressions of knowledge are ingraved upon our higher order of rocks. The world is all a blank before us and our stone frontier refuses to let the faintest rays of the light of knowledge thru. Our second year is generally classed as the great flood. During this period we emerge from our stoned-in fortress and our heads de- compose into a tangible mass of ideas and theories, mainly thru the medium of debates, lectures and arguments instigated by our in- structors. The flood begins on a small scale but gradually grows largei ' and larger until all the barriers in front of the gate of knowl- edge are broken down. The third stage is generally known as the mumified era. During this period we remain like Tutankhamen by keeping our knowledge for a future date so that we can astonish the world by the latent secrets held under our outer cloak of silence. In fact we bottle up our wisdom and salt it down for future use. At last we have come to our final state of development, Minerva has taken us under her direct tutelage and the bright rays of wisdom shine out from our heads like a crown of diamonds. Socrates himself would beg for an interview with us if we gave him a chance to open the gates of Hades. For as Billy said, " All the world ' s a stage, " and we control the stage. P a k e Ninety-Six J U N E T§ SS r POST The Haunted House By MARIAN WALKER " And that ' s all there is to it, " continued Allen, " if I can prove the house isn ' t haunted, dad, he ' s a real estate agent you know, can sell the house to some people and he promised to split the commission with me. ' ' He looked at his friends, Lefty and Bob, high school students, and otherwise harmless enough young men. " Now, all you have to do is go with me tonight and I will put your name up for the Sigma Chi. " " Well, " said Bob, " sounds pretty good — but — just what par- ticular kind of haunt has it? " " Oh, the regular stuff — queer shadows, taps, groans and flicker- ing lights and once in a while — " " Plenty, " broke in Bob, " I ' ve got a date for tonight. " " And I ' ve got two of them — I never was anxious to meet a ghost, " finished Lefty. " Oh well, if you are afraid of course I ' ll — " But you know boys. That last remark was enough and after a few hasty moments of converse the boys went their separate ways to meet at eight o ' clock, go to a show and then fare forth upon their ghostly venture About six hours, a good dinner, and a thrilling movie, later the dauntless three started on a short walk to the outskirts of the town, where on a small pine-crested hill the ill-omened house nestled. -List before reaching the path to the house Lefty gasped. " LOOK! " he whispered hoarsely. They did and beheld a black cat slink swiftly before them and disappear in the shadows of the trees. " How cheering, " remarked Bob in a voice that was meant to be jolly. " Aw, come on, a cat can ' t hurt you, " this from Allen who was leading bravely up a worn path between tall trees that whispered softly in the breeze and seemed to be telling secrets of the deserted house to a pale and clouded moon. While the owls, the only tenants of tin- place, queried wierdly of the young adventurers — " Whoo, Whoo. " " I wish those darn owls weren ' t so darn inquisitive, " remarked Lefty. " The key works, " sang out Allen to the boys — then a little softer, " C ' mon. " Up they went, flash lights gleaming in the gloom of the dusty house. " Not bad, " muttered Allen. " Electric lights and everything, " and he turned on the switch. The room thus revealed, though dusty and not very modern, was very normal looking, and the boys, thought naturally brave, heaved a Page Ninety-Seven JUN E " " TTjUIS Tpost small sigh and started talking in low tones as they gave the room the once over. The lights went out ! " What ' s that— " The lights shone again! " What happened? " " Diuino. " " Listen. " Slowly and distinctly came the sound of taps! " What ' s that? " A door banged and a long groan wafted itself into the room. " I ' m getting out of here, " said Lefty as one fully convinced of the excellent logic of his conclusion. " It ' s down stairs, " whispered Allen. " Let ' s go. " " That is what I think, " said Lefty again, " only in the opposite direction. " Come on, " said Bob impatiently, and once more the gallant knights sallied forth to the great unknown. Through gloomy rooms, along creaking halls to a door that when opened showed a light, and then softly with muscles tightened the boys prepared to face the haunt. At the foot of the stairs they had just descended and at a distance of about twelve feet from them, seated at a small table was — The Mechanic class genius — one Howard Roth. " Say, " started Allen boldly after the first shock of the surprise was over — " What are yon doing here? Don ' t you know this place is haunted? " " Yes — yes — 1 do — you see I ' m the haunt, " began the pale faced boy timidly, " you know 1 can ' t work well at home and I don ' t get along well with people — " The boys nodded. They all knew of this quiet, retiring boy who was considered by the mechanic teacher at school a second Thomas Edison, " and so, " he went on, " I ' ve worked here since the last time it was unoccupied and when people came to buy it, I turned off their light " — he showed them a switch, " and tapped and groaned a bit ' till now I ' ve had this place for nearly two years — Aw, what did you spoil it for? " he finished sadly. " What are you working on? " demanded Bob, the ever curious. And for the next half hour the boys learned more about radio than they thought there could be. Well, that ' s the end of the story, I guess, except the house is still haunted, only now there are four ghosts because what ' s a commission or a Signa Chi membership when compared to a real underground radio ?

Page Ninety-Nine jun E n rfis n po s tt |3 Sequoia By TED SUTHERLAND Out in tlie wonderland of the West are many inspiring scenes. The magnificence and area of such vast productions of beauty impress the observer as only that which can be infinitely connected with the eternal. Dur ' ng the enticing mid-summer days of July, the opportunity was offered me to journey upon the famed California Redwood High- way. The trip proved to be so glorious that T shall attempt to narrate the swav of emotion that gripped me as I entered into " The Valley of the Giants. " We had been driving since about eleven o ' clock that morning, ascending the Coastal range. At about the highest point of elevation, the Oregon-California boundary line was crossed; then came the long and rather perilous deseent. Mile after mile soon stretched out he- hind us and the afternoon waned. While yet some distance up the mountains, the calm and darkness of night began to creep upon us. The air was fra errant and cool, and the solitude of the surroundings lent a deep hush to our party. Silence prevailed. The atmosphere was now of a deep bluish tint, announcing the approach of night. Suddenly, without warning, huge massive shapes of tree trunks were visible in dark outline against the night. My first feeling was of amazement, wonderment : then as I realized what those were which confronted my vision, the impression of awe and reverence to the Su- preme Being whose handiwork they were, filled the very depths of my soul. Emotion so deep that cannot be expressed came upon me. These were the mammoth representatives of that which is beyond and all that it stands for. Impossible for man to determine their age. The oldest living objects on earth, they are ten to thirty centuries of age. some three hundred and twenty-five feet high, and measuring twenty-two and more feet in diameter at the bs se. It was as if some mighty enchantment had over-ruled my senses — I could not speak. The presence of the scene, and the setting with which it was offered, entirely enveloped my powers of self-mastery. Never before had ocular reaction affected my whole body as this did. It seemed sacrilegious that I should stir for fear of disturbing the soft murmur of the towering branches above me. A complete restful dis- position of body and soul seemed apparent. The grove lasted for several miles, but as we neared the California coast, they grew less and less in number, and finally disappeared altogether. The twinkl- ing lights of Crescent City and the roar of the ocean, near at hand, assured me that we were reaching the end of that day ' s journey. We arrived at the delightful little sea village about eleven o ' clock that night, and received accommodations at the hotel. The following day we drove farther south along the coast, during which we again came in contact with the mighty Giant Redwoods, giving me the chance of securing a daylight view of those monster beauties to which soon I should be compelled to bid farewell, and return to my home in the north.

Of Love and Life and then Eternity. Pink almond blossoms fall in scented heaps; " White cherry petals cloud the landscape o ' er; Silk-sandaled feet, called golden lillies, creep Beneath the grey-blue shadows by the door.

Nightmare By EFFIE HARDIN Drip, drip, drip, each drop fell wearily, lingeringly but steadily. Drip, drip, drip, each was a blow searing my brain like the strike of a hammer. Grey mists and purple shadows surrounded me. My head sagged forward, my arms hung limply at my sides. I wondered dully if I were going mad, if I were not even now crazy. Drip, drip, drip, I must have fainted for I was conscious of nothing except a blessed darkness. Then out of the black, velvety clouds a face protruded — a grin- tiing, hideous face, pale as tinted ivory, mouth stretched in a horrifying smile, scant hair falling in ragged locks over its forehead, eyes blood- shot and terrible. Clammy sweat gathered on my forehead. I screamed ; I tore at the ropes that bound my wrists. Drip, drip. drip, nearer came tin- face and now an arm came into view, a claw-like hand clutching a dagger. Nearer, nearer, nothing would stop it but eternity. The slender blade pierced my coarse robe, pricked my heart and 1 was — awake. Page One Hundred One iwwEr BQS osT X ij Damask Roses By THELMA B.

One Hundred SfpUNE TlfW rPQST-Q i Three Thousand Years Ago By MARIAN WALKER This may or may not be an essay — I hope it is, but at any rate I feel I must tell the world of my most unusual dream, and as this seems an excellent opportunity I shall try to make the most of it. I came home fully prepared to write a long-, intelligent article on Frogs; and so was drowsing over some famous authority of that most interesting creature when I suddenly found myself on the banks of what I discovered to be the Nile. The discovery was due to a large Electric sign asserting that on this, the Nile river, no Crocodiles were allowed to park for more than an hour. I had stood there for several moments when I beheld what seemed to be a royal Caravan approach- ing the spot where I was standing. As it came closer I heard a wierd chant to the effect that the king was dead and as it passed I said half aloud but to myself, " How sad to die so soou — he has never even seen a flapper. " As if he had heard my words a voice came from the richly carved sarcophagus that was just passing and commanded the procession to stop. It did, and the mummy of the old King, you ' ve guessed right — Tutankhamen — sat up and blinked a few times, then turned to me. " You say I ' ve never seen a flapper, " he stated rather roughly — and I understood him, ' tho I had never studied his language. I ad- mitted that I had said that. He turned to an Egyptian girl beside him. " Look at her, " he said. " Think of your flapper, where ' s the dif- ference ? ' ' I looked. Black bobbed hair, heavy black eyelids and brows, deeply hennaed complexion and huge earrings became instantly visible. Her clothes, ' tho not as scarce as our flapper ' s, were just as loud. " What ' s the difference? " demanded the king. " She doesn ' t chew gum, " I stated hopefully. " Beetlenut or Coffeebean is a good substitute, " he snapped. " Er — she doesn ' t dance, " I remarked doubtfully. Just then I heard some wierd shrieks and the knocking of cymbals and a drum beat now and then and I noticed it was strangely like our own jazz. The motions the girls were going through convinced me that he was right. " Yes, I beg your pardon, " I quavered, " she does. " " Then, " said the king, " why did yon say that 1 died too soon? " " It was you people that were born late. Why even your Fords are Page One Hundred Four a take-off on our Camel. Your clothes a take-off on ours — you have as many gods as we — " I started to interrupt — He went on, " Money, Excitement, Clothes, Pleasure, — all these are your gods. Your government, of course, is a little better, but who put such a poor example before you that you now do better? " I am sorry, friend, I have no more time for converse as I am dead — but you will hear more of me. " He lay back in his coffin and with those words ringing in my ears, I awoke, and I wondered if he was right — was he born too early or me too late? Recollections On Reading the Ode to the West Wind By KENNETH HEISLER All night the wind blew and in the morning it brought a storm and snow. The blizzard scattered the cattle before it like a newly- born gale scatters the dry dead leaves that hinders its progress. Every- where small bands gathered, shivering, their backs covered with snow and ice and their heads lowered — they were the picture of utter de- jection. It was our duty to bring these to the feeding place lest they be- come completely separated from any chance of obtaining food, and starve. All that day we plodded onward, now walking, then riding, for in that way only could we find warmth. The approaching night meant our failure while the cold, merciless, never-ceasing wind was our deadly enemy and our horses, faithful beasts, our only companions. They seemed to realize the need of hasty action and that they would receive a recompensation for their best efforts while the cattle were unmindful of any reward. The horses would often stamp with im- patience at the slowness of the herd and were ever willing to head off a strayling, who, half dead from exposure, sought to leave the herd, as the bee, who upon seeing death near, leaves his comrades and dies far from the hive. Finally, before the last stivak of light had faded, we were vic- torious and hastened to our own reward — home.

They are the one type of architecture that holds a universal appeal, the one kind of dwelling that everyone, whether rich or poor, young or old, humble or exalted, may possess. Some few people do, I know, condemn the building of these castles ; they call the time thus spent wasted, because apparently no material form or substance is produced by our labor. For such people I feel a real and profound pity ; they are losing a large share of their rightful heritage in life, for they will never know the supreme joy that comes only with the fulfillment of some long cherished dream or ambition, nor will they ever be able to sympathize truly with the joys and sor- rows of others — and in this ability lies half the secret of true living. And when they say that these castles never materialize or take definite form, they make the gravest mistake of all, for many a rare painting, exquisite melody, or lovely poem exists today as a silent record of some castle built long ago. Castles in the air do materialize, and the forms they assume are as many and varied as they themselves. Perhaps the chief attraction offered by our airy castles is their freedom from any suggestion of monotonous similarity ; each one is entirely different from all others, yet all are alike in their appeal. Cer- tainly they are unlike the dwellings in certain factory towns, where houses stand row after row, alike in shape, color and size, seeming to have been cut by the same pattern and put together by some huge machine, with no alleviating bit of individuality to rest the eye in the whole dreary array. No, our castles are not like that ; how could they be when they are formed " of the stuff that dreams are made of " and everyone knows that dreams are never alike. It is fortunate indeed that our castles are not constructed of brick and cement, or many of us would owe large bills to wrecking com- panies, for a great many castles are sometimes built in a lifetime. As our viewpoints of life change with growing years, so do our ambi- tions; each period of life has its own separate desires, and hence its own castle in the air. The small boy dreams of some day being a Page One Hunt! red Seven POST -Q l Merchant Prince and sailing the Seven Seas; liis castle is very likely to take the form of a treasure cave filled with precious stones and pirate gold, that he will discover on his voyages. The Romantic girl in the early teens dreams of some day being a great movie star, such as the one whose picture she cherishes : her castle is the wonderful dressing room she will possess when she reaches stardom. In later years, during college days, neither would recognize their discarded castles. The dream of a Merchant Prince has become an ambition to secure a responsible position in a large manufacturing concern : the treasure cave has changed to a private office. The girl ' s dream of sometime becoming a second Lillian Gish or Norma Talmadge has given place to the ambition of securing a college professorship: the star ' s dressing room has become a college classroom. So in early years our castles are ever changing, never taking definite form, till at last we build the one which we will cherish through the rest of our life and ever strive to bring to complete realization. They play a great part in our lives, these castles, and the world would be dreary indeed without them. Some would cry and pity him Because he has no teeth Either on the upper jaw Or on the jaw beneath ; But he never has to brush them. Have them pulled, or have them fillei For he never has an abcessed tooth Or nerve that should be killed. lie talks all day and shouts all night ; For his race he is a booster. But the reason that he has not teeth Is ' cause he is a rooster. Cluck! Cluck! Pane One Hundred Eight POSTT Jtjl Scholarship in Franklin Franklin ' s scholarship standing has always been high, as the ac- complishments of her graduates in higher institutions of learning have proved. However, prior to the adoption by the Student Body in June, 1921, of the present system of awards, no formal recognition was given scholastic attainment. A term grade of " E " in at least four major subjects and not less than " G " in all other subjects taken, is the requirements for a term award. There are eight different awards given, the degree depending on the number of times awards have been won. To date approxi- mately seventy awards have been made. Through the Student Body Franklin is now doing as much as any other high school in the city or state to promote higher standards of scholarship. The demand for a college education is every year becoming greater. Colleges in self defense have been forced to raise their stand- ards. Carlton E. Spencer, Registrar of the University of Oregon, in ex- plaining why a student looking toward college must acquire correct habits of study while in high school, says: " Almost every high school student has the ability to make good. It is not a matter of brilliancy or superior mental capacity but of simply plugging away, getting each day ' s lesson as it comes. Therefore the prospective college student should begin at the outset of his high school course to lay a foundation of scholarly habits and training. " High schools, if they are to prepare students for admission to col- lege must take account of college attitude. Franklin is measuring up to her responsibility in this respect. Students who have won scholarship awards are considering or- ganizing. This will probably be effected at the beginning of the fall term. Of scholarship awards made for the terms ending January, 1922, June, 1922, and January, 1923, Clara Jasper and Nori Shimomura have received fourth awards, the highest yet made. The next in order, third awards, have been given Vivian Ilockman, Clara Jasper, Manota Marolm, Avis Nelson. Martha Stanley and Nora Shimomura. Many others have received first and second awards.

AVERY Franklin ' s first open house of May the fourth proved to he of the greatest success. Hereafter it will be one of the most important events of the school year, and will he one of the biggest factors in mak- ing a greater, better school. Open house brings the teachers and parents into contact as nothing else can do. The parents who have had only a mental idea of the school and teachers come and see them, and from thenceforth when their children discuss at home the happenings at school they have a true picture in their mind and consequently become more inter- ested in the school life of their children. Many parents, although they had heard frequently of Franklin needing an auditorium did not fully realize it until they sat in the broken seats in our gymnasium and tried to hear the program. The only way Franklin will ever get its audi- torium is by making the voters and tax-payers understand how badly we need one. Open House, conducted properly will bring Franklin its auditorium quicker than anything else. At the same time it will bring the parents, teachers and students into closer cooperation and nothing could do more to make a better more efficient Franklin High School. Our Student Body By SYLVIA SEYMOUR Our Student Body has been growing rapidly for some time and with its growth new problems have arisen which demand our considera- tion. Its membership is open to every student in Franklin. We may discuss " ad infinitum ' the defects in our present system without ever getting anywhere. The thing for us to do is first think seriously and secondly plan a system of student government that we think will work. Then we should stand behind it. We should give our Student Body officers real power and then see that they use it. We ought to be good enough citizens to govern ourselves squarely without making our faculty act as policemen. The Student Body is the one body truly representative of Frank- lin. Think what it could be if each of the fifteen hundred Franklin- ites put his very best effort into it. It would mean, perhaps, only a few minutes a day for each of us but " great strength lies in union and fifteen hundred students working with a singleness of purpose are bound to constitute a mighty force for good. " We are training to he future citizens of our country and where can we find a better place to learn and to act democratically than right here in Franklin under an efficient system of Student Body government ? One Hundred Fourteen JUNE ITMUTI POST I hope we can be roused to the great possibilities yet to be realized. After all, it rests with us, the students of Franklin, to make the Student Body supreme, and • ' when hundreds of Franklinites talk up. buck up ai d think up. our Student Body will wake up. " " F. H. S. " By BARBARA BLYTHE What does Frank ' in EFgh School mean to you? Does it mean the place where you have spent many hours of studying ami rm.ny happy times? Or dees it mean merely a place — a school building — where you are compelled to go and which you leave the minute the dismissal bell rings? Does it give yen a thrill and a great deal of satisfaction when you see ycur team win a game of football, basket- ball, or baseball, or any other sport? — or do you find out merely by accident or by hearing others discuss the game, that Franklin has won? Does it make you feel more like fighting — more like support- ing your team — when there is a small chance for its winning the game? — cr do you stay away entirely, because you do not want to see your team beaten? Which kind of a Franklinite are you? If you are the kind that suppcrts everything with a punch, you are the kind that is known and liked by all who I now you. If you want prominence — if you want to be liked — if you want to pin Frank- lin on the first rung of the ladder, be a true Franklinite — supp-rt your school — and for the years to come F. II. S. wi ' l mean a great ileal to you. " School Spirit " By MALCOLM CURRIE Every student on entering high school hears a lot about the time worn phrase, " school spirit, " but few ever stop to think how the term effects them personally. School spirit isn ' t anything you can buy, beg, or steal. You have to acquire it. Many students go all the way through high school and never know what school spirit means. Such a student has missed fifty per cent of the benefits of high school. He is just as bad as one who goes four years and flunks. School spirit is acquired by service, by interest in all school activities, by active participation, and by self-responsibility. A good example of real school spirit and its results was shown during the last football season. Greeted by roar- ing crowds as they trotted onto the field our fellows knew that the school and the students were behind them and the return they made gladdened the hearts of all real Franklinites. Out of the proceeds of the games a sadly depleted athletic fund was replenished. Individual ideas together with cooperative supporl will put things over bigger, and, in the long run put over bigger things. One Hundred Fifteen Athletics VIRTA HOUSE JU JE rillS POST Quaker Athletics By ALLEN EAST This school, as a member of the Portland [nterseholastie League, has been represented in all lines of athletics since the foundation of Franklin. Because of our size and the abundance of athletic equipment, the school has always been fortunate in producing good teams. It may be safely stated that no championship lias ever been settled without a strong- influence from the Quaker aggregations. Now that we are Hearing the end of another year of school life, and a review of past records is permissable, we may proudly note that in every sport, Franklin has ended in the first division. This class has been very ably represented by a number of good athletic men. It is their fervent prayer that Franklin colors always remain in the foremost rank. Tennis For a past decade, the Quakers have been told that Franklin would have a number of tennis courts, whereby the sport would become an activity of more value to the school tennis fans. Our dreams have come true, the courts are here and the tennis players are materializing. This simple fact means that tennis championships in the future, can not be decided without the sav of a Franklin team. Nuff sed. Golf Golf, if you please, is a sport which is gaining impetus in our athletic curriculum. Franklin has had one team in its history. The players of that team were presented wth golf letters. This year, the lettermen are all back and will attempt to lower the 18 hole mark to 80. There is no doubt that this will be done. Actions count. One H n n ti r e l Nineteen rj jWE WW9 TPOST Basketball Franklin started her basketball season with two lettermen and a host of new material. From this squad, coach Meek developed a good team, despite its inability to gain the championship. The school sup- port was compensated, however, by the hair raising closeness of most of the games. The squad lined up as follows: Those playing forward — Claire Scallon, David Epps and Allan East. Guards — Fred Harkins (captain), Paul Walgren and Lyle Mc- Callum, alternating with Lloyd Hart. Center — Lyle McCallum and Carl Klipple. The above men with the exception of Harkins, Walgren, McCallum and East, will be able to serve their school in the season yet to come. The following schedule denotes the schedule and the season ' s results : LEAGUE GAMES F. H. S 21 Lincoln 41 F. H. S 46 Commerce 22 F. H. S 47 Roosevelt 20 F. II. S 16 Washington 20 F. II.

One Hundred Twenty JUNE T POST One Hundred Twenty-One JUNE POST t ?Tj Wrestling Franklin has been known for its excellent wrestling tennis. This year ' s squad was no exception. For the first time in school history, Franklin has had a wrestling coach; Mr. Hamlin, of the Multnomah Club to be exact. With the exception of Captain McCallum, none of the wrestlers this year, have ever earned a letter. In the meets with Benson and Multnomah Club, the school hone crushers were defeated by close scores. With this year ' s training, the teams in the future should not he handicapped by green material. The following men were represented in the above meets: Captain, Wallace McCallum, 175 pounds; Desmond Anderson, 135 pounds; Alberl Strauss, 180 pounds; Dolph Pearson, 125 pounds; Richard Averil, 125 pounds; Francis, 135 pounds; James Wright, 115 pounds; Bradley, 80 pounds; He moloch, 125 pounds. Mrs. Blanche Thurston, a well known and honored faculty mem- ber in the school, and a woman who knows boys, especially wrestlers, was the faculty adviser of the Wrestling Club, a social organization made up of wrestlers. This club held sway when business anil social work was in order.

Although the team was made up of only two lettermcn at the outset, the remaining players had all been affiliated with outside teams in former years. Walgren in the center outgarden and Captain Ilarkins on tin- second bag were the only two lettermen who turned out. The pitching staff was made up of David Epps, " Dutch " Harkins and Eddie Ziesler, all new mound men. Darwin Mooney and Morris Douglas, ably re- ceived the pitchers. On first base, Clarence Parker, and Bill Cox, alternated. Hall, a new man, romped the short patch with consider- able agility. On the third sack, Lester Harrison performed. Right field was the scene of activities on the part of Vernon Miller. Center field was made impenetrable by the playing of Walgren. To his left, Merose Pflaum and Leland Brown were the actors. Pre-season games played with older teams showed that the season with the city schools would not find us wanting. Past records have proven this. Several games with the college freshmen were planned for the end of the season. One Hundred Twenty-Four JUNE " w POST!

The first happening to arouse the school ' s interest, was the run from Gresham, Ore., to the Franklin Bowl. This ten mile race was hotly contested by teams from Washington. Lincoln, Roosevelt and our own school. For six miles. Franklin held a fifty yard lead, but lost it in the last three miles. Our team finished 20 seconds behind the winner. In meets with indi- vidual schools, our aggregation showed decided superiority. The team this year had for its coach. Mr. Southwick. of running fame while himself an athlete in an eastern college. Through his ef- forts and the team ' s efforts the old Greek sport has found a perma- nent and lively home in the Quaker institution. Captain Sisson, along with Kliss. Barnard, Dilg and Homes are the lettermen who were hack as a nucleus for the team. New men like Renfro, Osgood, Pefley, Watt. East. Eagleton, [de, Look. Leavitt and Retching have greatly aided the running section of the track activities. Greenland, Eagleton, Strauss. Leavitt. Bliss. Hastings and East have helped to fill up the other activities.

Its name is familiar in college circles everywhere. Not a year goes by that some student or team does not win state and national distinction. Student government has prevailed for twelve years. Fraternity and club life is happy and wholesome. Social life is ample, and events like the Home-coming and Junioi Week-End are festival occasions. STUDENT ENTERPRISES. Student publications include a daily, the Baro- meter, four or five technical periodicals like the Oregon Countryman, and the Student Engineer, a comedy magazine, the Orange Owl, and the Beaver, one of the great college annuals of the country. Dramatics and Forensics are well sup- ported (O. A. C. won the state oratorical contest and the national peace oration contest last year, and in debate won twice as many points as the opponents). Both Intramural and Intercollegiate athletic contests are splendidly supported by the entire student body. Musical organizations like the Band, the Glee Club, the Orchestra, and the Madrigal Club, stimulate interest in all phases of music. Technical associations are vigorous and helpful. STUDENT CAREERS. While developing leadership and character through an abundant and wholesome college life, students of O. A. C. are also preparing them- selves for their life careers. The various schools— Agriculture, Engineering, Com- merce, Home Economics, Forestry, Mines, Pharmacy. Vocational Education, Chemical Engineering, and Military Science — all offer training for the lea ding vocations of the Northwest.
