This small group of Seniors has played a major part in the many
different branches of school activities. P
Mark Leinbach, with the aid of the cabinet, has made the Y. M.
C. A. an active organ in the life of the school. These officers, by
their untiring efforts, obtained the most prominent men of Lancaster
to speak at the weekly meetings. However, along with the high
efhciency of this organization, there has been a deep mystery-just
what it was that enveloped and spirited away the wonderful musicians
secured by the chairman of the music committee, Mr. Marshall.
Another successful organization has been the Literary Society.
This year, instead of running two societies, as in previous years,
these societies were combined into one large body. The meetings
of this new society have been both interesting and beneficial, and
many a raw recruit has been turned into an author, declaimer, or
debater. A great deal of credit for the success of this new society
is due to the never-ceasing efforts of our critic and adviser, Mr,
Look again at the group of young men that advance from the side
of the enclosure. Among them one can see many shapes and sizes-
some tall and slender, some short and stout, and then some a com-
bination of the two. Yet from this group old F. and M. A. has
picked the majority of her athletes. When it came time to pick a
football team, Coach Forstburg chose nine members of the Senior
Class for places on the team. After many days of hard training the
team was drilled into good shape, but owing to war conditions the
large schedule was broken to pieces, and so very few games were
actually played. Under these circumstances, Captain Schaeffer did
much to keep up the spirit of the team. His enthusiasm never lapsed
nor did his hopes grow cold.
The soccer team, under the supervision of Coach Yoder and Cap-
tain Spencer, have had a very successful season. Although they
did not win all their games, the spirit and sportsmanship of the team
was excellent. Seven members of the Senior Class were on this
The basketball team went through a very hard season, but came
out at the long end of the deal. Coach Forstburg was called home

HE sloping sides of the amphitheatre are overflowing with the
great Cosmopolitan mob. The air is filled with their cries
and shouts as they expectantly await the coming contest.
And now the large barriers at one side of the enclosure are thrown
open, and thirty-one young men, bearing a black and orange banner,
walk slowly into the arena. Guarding the small door of A'Success"
on the opposite side of the enclosure stands a monstrous giant, clothed
in armor and leaning upon a massive shield which bears the one
word, " Opposition."
It is the Class of Nineteen Hundred Nineteen that has advanced
into the arena of life to battle against "Opposition" and the fickle
cries of the multitude. They are not just ordinary young men,
either individually or in a group-far from that. They have passed
through a period in the world's history that no preceding class has
passed through. They have kept their balance and have striven
toward that goal which they deemed paramount to everything else-
the procuring of an education.
To be sure, not all their time has been spent in the so-called "pur-
suit of knowledge." Many are the pleasures that have helped to
drive out the monotony of the daily routine and even mar the class
records of a few of the shining lights. Immortal shall be the memory
of the pajama parade, the frequent rough-houses, and the numerous
impromptu "feeds" that have been scattered throughout their last
year at old F. and M. A.

swaying, boisterous mob has now subsided, and all eyes are centered
on the group in the middle of the arena. What is to be the outcome
of the battle? No one knows. Many guesses are ventured and
prophecies are rampant, but no one knows. Time alone will tell
the outcome of the struggle, but Time is slow and the struggle has
