How to Behave Toward the Flag
Prepared by Superintendent of Schools.
Our nation has never entered into war under a pretext. We have
always had a just cause and our flag has always led us through to vic-
tory. It stands for the noblest ambitions of humanity, for lasting peace
throughout the world, and for the honor and protection of all who love
liberty and equality.
We should honor the old flag for the love of country it inspires, the
national unity it symbolizes and the power for which it stands.
Flag of the free heart's hope and home!
By angel hands to Valor given!
Thy stars have lit the welkin dome,
And all thy hues were born in Heaven.
Forever float that standard sheet!
Where breathes the foe but falls before us,
With freedom's soil beneath our feet,
And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us!
ln the Use of the Flag We Should Follow the Following Rules:
When the flag goes by, rise if you are sittingg halt if you are walk-
ing, and take off your hat.
In decorating, never drape the flag, always hang it flat. If the stripes
are horizontal, the union should be in the left upper corner. If they are
perpendicular. in the right upper corner.
If our flag is crossed with the flags of other nations, or carried in
a parade beside them it should always be at the right.
The flag should be raised at sunrise and lowered at sunset. It should
not be left out at night unless under fire. It should not be allowed to
touch the ground. If possible, a pole rather than a staff should be used.
In raising a flag to half-mast, or half-staff, it should be run to the top
of the pole, and then lowered the width of the flag. Before being retired
it should be run to the top again. On Memorial Day the flag should be at
half-mast until noon, and at the peak from noon until sunset. '
In unveiling a monument, the flag should never be allowed to drop
to the ground, but so arranged that it can be drawn up and will then
float over the monument.
If draped over a casket, the blue Held should be at the head. If
used as the covering of an altar, nothing except the Bible should be
placed upon it, and the union should be at the right.
Distress at sea is indicated by hanging the flag union down.
Always stand when "The Star-Spangled Banner" is played.
The flag must not be used to advertise merchandise, but it may
be used on any publication designed to give information about the flag,
or to promote patriotism, or to encourage the study of American history.
.Tune 14, the anniversary of the day in 1777 on which the flag was
adopted, is "Flag Day."
The length of the flag should be very nearly twice its height, or, to
be exact, in the proportion of 1.9 to 1. The length of the union should be
threefourths the height of the whole flagg the height of the union should
be that of seven stripes.

I am an American citizen. America is my country. I will try to be a
true and faithful citizen to my country every day of my life. The ensign
school and our
of America is our flag. It safeguards our homes, our
country. We salute our iiag because we love and honor it.
OUR FLAG SALUTES
The simplest salute to the dag is the following:
"We give our heads and our hearts to God and our Country: One
Country, one language, one dag."
The National salute which is also known as "The Oath of Allegi-
ance," ist- '
"I pledge allegiance to my flag, and to the Republic for which it
stands, one Nation, indivisible, with Liberty and justice for all."
Our Father, help us today to work with willing hands. Help us to
speak the truth and to be loving, obedient citizens. May our dear Amer-
ica be a better country because we live in it. Amen.
Our Father, we thank Thee that America is our Country. We thank
Thee that we live under the Stars and Stripes. Help us always to be
obedient, loyal American citizens. Amen.
Our Father help us today to be truthful, honorable, loyal citizens,
to scorn to be idle, selfish or dishonest. Help us to do our work so faith-
fully that we shall be an honor to our city, our school, our country, our
flag, and to Thee. VVe than Thee that Thou hast given us America for
our home, that we may live under the inspiration of our dear flag.

Senior Class History
The history of the class of 1918-every one of us can justly feel
proud of it. For the benefit of those who might wish to follow our
worthy example we shall print here a record of our school life:-
On September eighth, nineteen hundred and fourteen, ninety-seven
trembling, little freshmen came from the various grade schools to Galion
High, where they were gathered together in the freshman room in order
that they might be enrolled.
We were received, of course, with the customary amount of yelling,
etc., with which freshman classes are usually received.
meeting, electing James
January second. we held our first class
Angell our class president and his work was most efficient. Our class
colors were chosen to be scarlet and jet.
ln athletics we had a good year, for the G. H. S. teams were in most
all cases successful. Our ability as students was shown by the
splendid programs given in our Literary societies, under the super-
vision of Miss Lothrop, and our faithful freshman teacher, Prof. Braden.
With vastly relieved nerves we pulled thru the midyears, with very
few failures. In the June exams we were equally successful, and we
were glad to be freshmen no longer.
Sixty-three of us returned in September, resolving to retain and
further the glory of our dear old class.
Early in November. we elected our officers, George Dunn was unan-
imously elected president and we need not speak of his efficiency. We
chose colors more suited to our class, yale blue and gold, which will
ever stand for our loyalty and worth..
We worked diligently throughout the year toward the same goal and
having passed our examinations, were most proud to call ourselves
At a class meeting called soon after September brought us back to
school, George Dunn was again elected to lead our Hfty-two classmen.
As Juniors our talent was more manifest than ever before. This
year as well as the previous year, one of our boys proved a star in one
of the debating teams, which were also ably assisted by other members
of our class.
Our musical ability was shown when the oratorio "The Seasons"
was given in December, and again in March, when the High School
under the able direction of Prof. Honnold gave "Hiawatha" and "The
Hymn of Praisef'
In June we royally entertained the Seniors. Our play, "Hicks at Col-
lege" was a success from start to iinish. We are sure it did great credit
to Miss Price who so patiently drilled us through the month preceding.
Seniors at last! We have reached the height of our present ambi-
tion. Our senior year will long be remembered as the most wonderful,
most beneficial and happiest of all.
As usual early in the year we held a class meeting for the election
of class-officers, and as usual George Dunn was chosen President with
George Dallas, Vice-President.
January brought with it the appointment of the Spy board and the
resolve to make our Spy the best yet published.
About this time George Dallas succeeded George Dunn as presi-
dent, during his absence.
VVe must not forget our literary societies and we must most heartily
thank Miss John for helping us in the organization of such a helpful
and beneficial phase of our school life.
An event in which the seniors took part was the musical given May
10th. It could not but be a success for we could depend upon Prof. Hon-
nold to make it such.
Only a few short weeks and our pleasant school life will be at a
close. We are eagerly, yet with feelings of no small regret looking for-
ward to Commencement and the various festivities which go hand ill
hand with graduation.
We must then leave the scene of so many enjoyments, the place
where we have received so much for which we ought to be thankful.
When we consider all we owe to dear old Galion High, we cannot leave
those walls which summon up so many pleasant recollections without a
determination that the history of the class of 1918 shall not end here,
but shall be such in the future as will bring increased renown to Galion
High. ESTHER LINSENMANN.

Like the flowers,
Fade away e'er we know they're past,
And tho we try
When they're by
All our tears can not m-ake moments last.
Do not grieve
When they leave,
They will never return for our sigh,
So smile, tho our hearts are nearly breaking,
To say farewell to Galion High.
Oh our dear Galion High we're departing
From your doors Class Eighteen now is starting,
Fare you well, fare you well!
All the hours that we spent 'neath your portals-
Are ones we'1l bless.
We'll never regret,
And never forget
Dear school-days in G. H. S.
All our life
With it's strife
Lies in realms far beyond our ken,
Be of good cheer
Do not fear
Tho we fail we can try once again.
Filled our mind
With the thought on which we can rely
All fame we may win when we have striven,
We'll owe it all to Galion High.
Soon will be
All that's left of the days we've seen.
Tho years may pass
All our class
Will be faithful, when time rolls between.
When old Age
Like a sage
With his hour-glass and sickle draws nigh
Our thought will turn backwards thru the a
To dear old days in Galion High.

And since he keeps steadily climbing

Say he, "VVell, a grocer I'll be."
Lee is the same boy as "Hotty"

He has enough nerve for a barber
So that's what he'll be by and by.

The Liberty Loan and the Senior Class
How it came about-On April 17, 1918, there was an unexpected call to a class-
meeting. At this meeting a friend of the class, Mr. Cohen, proposed that if each Senior
would subscribe to a S50 liberty bond he himself would carry the initial payments for any
members who might at the moment find themselves unable to do so until the close of the school
year and until the Senior's first positions enabled them to refund and take up the bond. This
plan was enthusiastically adopted by the class who greatly appreciated and admired Mr.
Cohen's patriotism, his public spirit and his kindly interest in the class. George Dallas was
the first to subscribe and the other boys quickly followed his brave example. The girls though
equally as patriotic as the boys were at first in doubt Whether or not to subscribe, fearing
lack of positions and so forth, but concluded that by sacrificing and economizing here and
there they, too, could "do their bit."
Thus it came about that the Senior class is a hundred percent class. They are proud
of their record, and may they not be justly proud?

The Log of the Good Ship 1919
Early in September, 1915, the large and splendid ship H1919 of Gal-
ion" sailed from the River of Lower Education into the Sea of Higher
Education, bound for the port of Success. Rough and tempestuous had
been the voyage for the eight years it had taken to travel down the
River of Lower Education, but the crew of the good ship "19l9" had
come through all storms and trials with smiling faces for they are made
of the stuff that makes leaders among men. The crew at this time num-
bered 96, with Kenneth Ledman as captain, Eleanor Poister as first
mate, and Louis Schaefer and Marjorie Dye as second and third mates
of this gallant ship.
Soon after the good ship had set sail, it's colors brown and white,
had been run up at the mast head. A day or so later three other ships
hove in sight. They were the vessels "l916,', "1917" and "1918." As they
came up beside our ship, the crews of all three of them came over our
side, and tried to haul down our colors, which were waving gallantly
in the breeze. But the brave crew of the gallant ship "1919" came to the
front and gave battle to the invaders. Twice did the enemy attack, and
twice did the gallant crew repulse them, the enemy finally retreating
from the scene. ,
Toward the last of January 1916, the good ship encountered a storm,
called the Mid-Year Exams. This storm was exceptionally severe, a large
number of the crew being washed overboard by extra large waves, which
might have been called Algebra, English, Latin and the like. After this
everything was smooth sailing until the first of June, when the good
ship struck another storm, called the Finals. Again the loss was very
severe, many of the crew being washed overboard.
Nothing of further interest happened until the following September,
when the roll was called again, and it was found that only 46 of the crew
reported. This did not discourage them, however, and they faced the
future with a smile. A meeting was held soon after, and Herbert Black
chosen captain. Ralph Lonius, first mate, with Violet Snyder and Kenneth
Ledman as second and third mates. Although the crew was much small-
er, no trouble was encountered, for they had more experience, and all
was smooth sailing. No serious storms were encountered this year, the
good ship "1919" coming through with flying colors. The voyage was
uneventful for the next few months, but things began to happen along
in September 1917-
The crew seemed to be a proof of the theory of the survival of the
fittestg it numbered only 40 but they were hardened and experienced
veterans, one and all, and could be depended upon to stick by the ship.
There were three other ships in the offing, but there was no hostility
between them. The good ship 'f1919" was battle-scarred and had lost
much of the shine that goes with all things new, but it was just as neat
and ship-shape as ever. As for the crew, there is not a finer looking one
on any of the other three ships near by, or any that is as lively and pop-
ular. At the annual meeting of the crew, Kenneth Ledman was elected
captain, and Beatrice Patterson as first mate and Robert Schreck as
second mate. To date the crew has piloted the good ship through every
storm, past all reefs and rocks, and come out with Hying colors.
They a.re loved and respected by the crews of the other three vessels,
especially by the crew of the ship "1920" who recognize in them all the
virtues that a sailor on the Sea of Education should have. Surely such
a ship and its members have an enviable journey ahead of them, and a
safe and successful voyage to the port of Success is assured them.

Sophomore Class History
Of the present Sophomore class, as of a certain famous character,
it may be said, that, "lt's not as bad as it might be." Their history can
easily be stated in a few words. They entered the high school. Part of
them intended to leave it in a year or two, which some have done al-
ready, but others expected to continue.
But we want to hear it from the iirstz On a bright September morn-
iny, a large body of freshmen were ushered into the chapel about eighty-
four strong, having that usual undignified, green appearance which
characterizes all freshmen when they enter the high school.
At the first of the year they held their first class meeting and chose
officers and class colors.
When the musicale was given on December 8, 1916, the freshmen
were there with their melodious voices. They were also there when the
oratorio "The Seasonsn was given May 4, 1917.
The boys organized a basket ball team of which we were very proud
having won many games from the neighboring towns and other class-
This great class not only excelled in athletic ability but in mental
ability as well. VVhen the arithmetic test was given it was found that the
average of the freshmen ranked next to that of the seniors.
The school year drew to a close and we were promoted to the sophoe
more class to be freshmen no more.
School opened the following September with our number decreased
to sixty-nine. Soon after school opened we held a class meeting and
chose Lorin Knight president, Tillie Crawford vice-president, Ethel
Thomas secretary and treasurer and we chose the colors green and
Wlien the basket ball season opened the boys again organized a
team which was equally as good as the one of the year before.
On Friday, March. 8, 1918, the sophomores rendered an excellent
program, in which the brilliancy and originality of the class was clearly
shown, therefore bringing forth the fact that the class of '20 was not to
The sophomore class was very patriotic when it came to loaning
money to the government. Most all of the class signed the pledge cards
and the girls showed their interest in the movement by sewing a little
each week for the Red Cross. When the amount that each class had
loaned to the government was added up, the sophomores were in the
Here we leave the class to continue on through school under the
name of Juniors but not to lose it reputation.

Ninety-seven eighth graders had long looked for the tenth. day of
September, 1917. It iinally arrived and amid yells and laughter of the
upper-classmen we proudly marched into Galion High School chapel.
The sound of our footsteps seemed to tell that we had resolved to make
the class of nineteen hundred and twenty-one the brightest and best
class that ever entered High School. We finally succeeded in getting
seats. After we were all seated and our hearts had ceased to throb, we
listened intently to a few short talks, containing much advice which in
a great measure was meant for us.
Now we were kindly directed to room 7 by Prof. Honnold and with
Prof. Plott as our leader we signed up as students of Galion High School.
After all it was not half so hard as we had anticipated.
It was now time to go home so we were dismissed from Prof. Plott's
room- The first morning was over, and how proud we were of the fact
that we had had so little trouble in entering High School.
VVe came back in the afternoon with still more of a determination
to learn. VVe were given our schedules and that was really the most
puzzling of all. But nevertheless' we soon had succeeded in straightening
it out. Now the second task was over.
The next morning we came to school witl1 light hearts, as we knew
the paths to chapel, had our schedule straightened out, and initiations
were all over.
Time seemed to roll around on wheels. It was near December now
and we thought it time to have a class meeting. VVe met in Room 7, De-
cember 9, 1917 with Prof. Plott as our leader. We elected Robert Gugler
as President, Dorothy Moore Vice-President, Ray Dawson Secretary and
Retha Smith as Treasurer. We also chose steel gray and old rose at
this meeting but at a later meeting changed the colors to blue and white.
As to the athletic part of the class, a fine basket ball team was or-
ganized among the boys. Not being satisfied with what they were doing
as a class team, some of the boys decided to be players of the First team
and they helped to carry away many an honor for the Galion High
As Christmas vacation was over the mid-years were staring us in
the face and the Freshmen were wise enough to take home their books,
and the reports show they must have studied.
Now it was growing into real winter and we were all thinking about
sleighing parties. Here and there you would see Freshmen talking about
the coming sleighing parties. Some of them proved to be very pleasant
The girls need as much credit along the line of Red Cross work as
the boys along the line of playing basket ball. On March 11, 1918, thirty-
seven of the girls signed as members of the Junior Red Cross- We met
in Prof. Powell's room and under the direction of Miss Weston, Miss
McElroy and Miss Lothrop we did very good work in knitting and sew-
mg. Again the boys did their share by furnishing money to buy material
for the girls to work with.
Now we are busy getting a program ready for Arbor Day. We are
positive it will be the best of the year as it contains a play as the other
classes gave, but this is the first year the Freshmen class ever gave a
XVe have reviewed the history of the Freshmen class from the
time we went into Galion High School up to the present time. XVe can go
no farther. lt takes time to make history. But, however, we will trust
and hope that the class of "twenty-one" will continue in the future as
in the past with their good work and in the end will have set a mark
that all concerned will be proud of and when we meet each other we
can say "lt was work but we have reached the top."

Music in Galion
Music has always played a large part in the life of Galion High
School. All over the state Galion has the reputation of being a town
much interested in music, and the high school to a great extent deserves
the credit for developing this interest. Every year, one or two public
concerts are given, and these are the musical events of the season for
the school and the town.
Every member of the high school belongs to the chorus. It has been
the custom for several years for this chorus of 250 voices to give ora-
torios by the great masters. This year, owing to the situation brought
upon us by the war, this plan was abandoned on account of the great
expense of importing artist soloists, and in place of the complete per-
formance of M611d61SSOl1H,S "Elijah," which was being prepared, it was
thought best to substitute a program made up almost entirely of num-
bers by the chorus.
In accordance with this decision, the following program was given
on Friday evening, May 10, 1918, at the New Armory.

Galion-Upper Sandusky Debate
Possibly you remember of seeing the statement in the 1917 Spy:
"Galion hopes to do better next year." It was with reference to the Gal-
ion-Upper Sandusky debate, in which Galion High met a double defeat.
To all appearances it was truly verified. Galion Won at home by a vote
of the judges of 3-0, while we were defeated at Sandusky by the same
vote, this not being the fault of the team.
The two teams were represented in the affirmative by: Ralph Lonius,
Herbert Black and Edwin Ackerman, the negative by: George Dallas,
Lewis Schaefer, Chester Bates and alternate, Robert Schreck. The ques-
tion was, "Resolved that all international agreements shall be submitted
to an international tribunal for final adjudication" which was debated
here by the negative and at Sandusky by the affirmative.
At Galion: The negative stated three questions which they proved:
1. Is it timely?
2. Is it practical?
3. W'ill it accomplish it's purpose.
George Dallas proved the Hrst question. Chester Bates proved the
second and Lewis Schaefer the third.
The judges at Galion were:
x The first speaker on the affirmative outlined their plan, the second
tried to prove it would beneiit the nations, while the third speaker tried
to prove that it would accomplish it's purpose. The excellent delivery
and solid, unrefutable arguments presented by the negative won for
them a decided victory over Sandusky's affirmative team.
At Sandusky. Thru a misunderstanding, our affirmative team lost.
When the question was decided, it was agreed that the last -part Usub-
mitted for final adjudicationn should be left entirely out of the argu-
ments, therefore the Galion team did not prepare anything for this part,
hence our team could not "knock the props out from underu any of their
arguments and defeat was evident. Our team had splendid arguments
prepared and if the last clause had not been entered into, we would
have had a double victory, when Mr. Honnold starts out to do a thing
he routs everything until he gets to the bottom of the question, then
lifts up and Bang! over it goes, and nothing less than a misunderstanding
knocks his arguments out.

"Buy a chrysanthemum. Ten cents buys a chrysanthemum! All for
th' Red Cross."
It was a cold day, and Billy Barker, defying the imposing footman,
boldly sang his wares before the entrance to the Statler Hotel
Perhaps the consciousness that his pockets bulged with generous
tips, prompted the big footman to disregard the irregularity of the small
Billy had had a long day, a successful one, since he had many times
replenished his stock. With visions of comforts which the money would
give the French and Belgian sufferers, Billy had risen to such heights
of enthusiasm as to scorn a noon-day sandwich, and four o'clock found
him 'tired and cold.
Business was on the waneg no-one seemed to give him any atten-
tion, and he still had two dozen of the fluffy beauties to dispose of. De-
termined to make a red letter day of it, he put aside the thought of re-
turning them unsold, and, caressing the magic coins in his pocket he
whistled a favorite tune, and once more besought customers.
It was at this juncture that a taxicab drew up to the entrance, and
Molly, the bewitching, alighted. Molly, Most Lovely, a picture of youth
and beauty, wealth and warmth, framed in the softest of furs, and be-
hind Molly came her maid, her arms full of packages.
"Buy a chrysanthemum! All for Red Cross!" chanted Billy Barker.
"Chrysanthemums! Just what I want!" exclaimed Molly. I'll take a half
dozen." Billy's stiff fingers dispensed the required amount and Molly's
descended to the depleted depths of a gold purse.
"A live-dollar gold pieceg the last of my hoard!" she laughed as
she dropped it into his palm. "Keep it for luck!" she added She was
about to turn away, when glancing down. she noticed the tired expres-
sion on Billy's face. "How much have you left to sell?" she asked. Billy
displayed the remaining blossoms. "Business'll be better toward even-
ing. Had dandy luck this morning, but I wouldn't mind getting on the
outside of some eats right now, but I kinda hate to take the time for
Molly hesitated a moment, then turned to her maid. "Clotilda, take
him up to our suite, and order a hot meal served to him there at once,
and have him rest a while." Then to Billy-"Give them to meg Iill take
your place until you return."
Billy's eyes beamed gratitude-his lips were numb. Timidly he fol-
lowed Molly's maid into the sacred precincts of the Statler.
For a few minutes Molly stood with her armeful of chrysanthemums,
a picture for the pasing populace. No one, however, stopped to patronize
her stock. Suddenly, Molly realized that she must cry her wares as
Billy had done. Swallowing gathering symptoms of stage fright, Molly
"Buy a chrysanthemum! All for the Red Cross! Help the boys in
Instantly frpm that somewhere whence issue all similar gatherings
appeared the inevitable crowd.
"What's the price," inquired some one. "Whatever you care to give!"
replied Molly. For ten minutes business boomcd outside the Statler. The
husky footman kept the crowd in order. Chrysanthemum stock soaredg
Molly was having the time of her life. She was almost sorry when she
exchanged the last flower for a ten-dollar bill,
"Perhaps," ventured the generous buyer, as the crowd dispersed,
"perhaps you would arrange it in my coat lapel."
Molly was too stimulated with success to be in anything but melting
"Certainly," she replied with alacrity. Demurely, skillfully, Molly
inserted ten dollars worth of chrysanthemum in the buyer's coat lapel.
"That is-all!" she observed with finality.
"One, just one thing more," pleaded the man.
"Will-er-will you give me a receipt?"
Molly looked at him, with one quick glance she appraised the broad
shoulders, the straight forward manner, and the clean-cut appearance
of the young man. No, he wasn't offensive, he was just as full of jovial
daring as she. She would never see him again. Why not?

"If you make out the bill." she agreed.
Immediately from the recesses of a morocco case the owner pro-
duced a visiting card. He wrote a line on it and handed it to Molly. She
read the engraved name-John Henry Walton-and underneath the
scribbled words: "To one Chrysanthemum-S10."
Molly Smiled inscrutably, seized the proferred pencil and on the
instant wrote, "Paid-Molly Chrysanthemum."
With a parting twinkle she disappeared into the security of the
The fear that John Henry Walton was close at her heels sent Molly's
feet flying in the most unconventional manner to the elevator.
"What possessed me to do such a thing?" she asked of her blushing
image in the elevator mirror.
"What if some one who knew me had caught me? What, what would
Uncle Thomas say? To what heights would Aunt Marcella's respectable
Molly's laugh rippled down the corridor to her apartments, where
she discovered Billy Barker, bending joyously over a steaming assort-
ment of viands.
t'Boy!" she exclaimed gladly. "Just think, I sold them all! I stood
there? and called as you had done, and all the Square came up and
"Gee! then you must of got 'bout five dollars."
"Five dollars!" scoffed Molly. "You eat while I count." And she
shook her white fox muff, and money of all denominations rolled out
on the rug.
Billy dashed to the rescue. Together they counted the proceeds,
"Thirty-five dollars? announced Molly.
"Gosh! I guess I'll have to get a burglar 'surance on me goin' to
head-quarters," exclaimed Billy.
"If Aunt Marcella had happened on the scene, she would have been
carried off in an ambulance!
Clotilda chuckled respectfully. 'Tm thinkin', Miss Molly, your poor,
dear aunt would have had some fierce jolt."
"I sure am much obliged to you " said Billy, as he deposited the
treasure in his pocket preparatory to leaving.
"Guess that'll keep a Belgian family for a day or two, eh? I'll go
right over to head-quarters and report, Golly! won't they be surprised
After stammering further thanks, Billy turned as he reached the
door, and suddenly grinned, displaying a white even row of teeth.
"Good-bye, Miss-er-Miss Chrysanthemum!" as he lifted his cap, and
was gone. As he hurried through the corridor of the hotel, he murmured
to himself: "I've seen some swells at the Movies, but there's none of
'em in it with her!"
John Henry Walton, with his ten-dollar boutonniere radiating it's
special brand of patriotism, walked on a private, aerial promenade en-
tirely around the block. The card on which Molly Chrysanthemum was
scribbled sent wireless sweet-nothings to the Walton Department of
Thrills. In vain he wrestled with his powers of description, in vain did
he mobilize a troop of the most flattering adjectives in the ranks of the
Century, Unabridged Words-just words, poor inadequate words. Why.
the English language was reduced to two words-just two, full of magic
and mystery! Molly Chrysanthemum!
What could be sweeter, tenderer, more caressing than Molly-un-
less it be Chrysanthemum?
John Henry Walton's circuit of the sacred square brought him back
to the big footman who had kept the crowd in order While Molly had
dispensed her wares. '
A greenbeck fluttered into the footman's hand.
"Will you be so good as to tell me if the young lady who sold the
flowers is a guest of this hotel?"
The footman took John Henry's measure. "She is, sir. She took
them of a kid that was selling them, while she sent him inside to get
"I suppose," observed the gentleman of the boutonniere, "that it
would be impossible to learn her name."
"It would sir, unless," with a twinkle, "the young lady herself was

Walton laughed, walked into the hotel and settling himself with a
magazine, took a chair in the lobby commanding a complete view of
For two exasperating, hopeful hours John Henry Walton waded
through a conglomeration of light literature with one eye, and with the
other studied the passengers alighting from the Statler elevators.
The wall clock sounded seven. The watcher turned upon it a defiant
"I shall wait," he said iirmly, "until half past seven."
lt lacked ten minutes of the hour named when the particular ele-
vator which had added most to John Henry's series of disappointments
moaned itself to a standstill. The door slid open, and followed by two
elderly, distinguished protectors, came Molly Chrysanthemum.
The scorned magazines dropped unnoticed on the iioor. John Henry,
with his heart beating rapidly, arose, and unobserved followed the trio
to a waiting taxi.
WVith great deference Molly's male protector assisted the stately
aunt and the smiling, dazzling Molly Chrysanthemum into taxicab No.
U23-23 it may be, but I shall not let them skiddoo!" observed John
Henry, as he entered the taxi next in line.
"Follow that car ahead? he ordered the chauifeur.
"Right-oh, mister," and the door was slammed.
Across the Square and through Seneca street they slid after 23-
23. Down the avenue until it chugged to a standstill before Number Ten
"Twenty-three again!" laughed Walton. "My lucky number, appar-
ently. Twenty-three! For the love of Milke it's Forbes! Forbes! Drive
on around Prospect and Ninth, and come back again," he instructed the
driver. During the five minutes thus occupied, John Henry Walton plan-
ned his campaign.
'tWait," he commanded, as he ran up the steps of No. 1023.
The door was thrown open and the butler stood in the entrance.
"Good evening, Nichols," greeted Walton.
"Good evening, Mr. Walton. Are youw-"
"Sh! Not a word, Nichols!" hissed the visitor, drawing him mys-
teriously out into the vestibule.
"Tell nie," he said, "what is going on this evening?"
"Just a little Birthday Celebration, sir, in honor of Mr. Forbes' an-
niversary, sir. Just relatives, sir," added Nichols, apologetically.
"Thank you, Nichols. And don't mention my having called, will
"No, indeed, sir. Though l'm sure it's delighted they'd be to have
yott. sir, and you a lonely bachelor."
"No doubt they Would, Nichols, I may be back later."
"Drive to Russell's florist shop in Superior street," ordered VValton
reentering the taxicab.
A dozen of Russell's longest, loveliest American Beauties were
placed tenderly in a box with John Henry Walton's card.
"Address, sir?" asked the clerk.
"l'll write that myselff' replied Walton, and for safety I'll take them
In a large, legible, unmistakable hand, John Henry wrote:
Miss Molly Chrysanthemum,
Care of Forbes 1023 Washington Ave.
With a chuckle he seized the box and carried it to the cab.
"Now drive back to Euclid avenue and stop a few doors this side
of the house we have just left. Then you are to take this package and
deliver it at Number 1023."
"l'll remain in the cab. If they ask any questions, you are just a
"I get you, sir. I know nothing!"
Walton, seated beside the American beauties, smiled happily all the
way back. Occasionally he glanced at the chrysanthemum which bloom-

earthed from his card-case the card on which the mysterious signature-

"Around the corner to the Union Club, as fast as you can."

into his evening clothes while his heart thundered a hopeful rat-atat-
At the Forbes residence . Nichols had created a pleasant excitement
by bringing in, just before dinner, the mysterious box addressed to Miss
"Beg pardon, but there's a box here, meant for here all right, ad-
dressed to Miss Molly Chrysanthemum."
The lady in question, surrounded by a group of admiring cousins,
"This way, Nichols," laughted Jack Forbes. "There is only one
"There is only one Molly Chrysanthemum!" dared Molly, with a
nervous little laugh
"May I cut the Gordian knot, fair lady?" inquired Jack.
"You may, breathed Molly, prayerfully hoping that disaster would
not be forthcoming. She could see Aunt Marcella piercing her with flash-
ing eyes. from the depths of an opposite sofa.
"Mm-m, lovely!" exclaimed Jack, presenting Molly with roses. "And
the card--the magic card. l'll permit you to read it first, Molly dear, but
I insist on a cousinly peek."
"Molly," said Aunt Marcella, haughtily, "has nothing to conceal!
You may read the gentlemairs name aloud, Molly."
lVIolly swallowed an embarrassed giggle.
"Mr. John Henry Waltonj she read deniurely.
Jack Forbes emitted a long, low whistle.
"Who," demanded Aunt Marcella's excited voice, "Is Mr. John Henry
VValton? You told me on the train coming up from Wasliington yesterday,
Molly, that you knew no young men in Cleveland but your cousins. I have
never heard of Mr. VValton."
"You haven't, Aunt Marcella 7" asked Molly feebly, toying with
"You haven't, Aunt Marcella?" echoed Jack Forbes. "Why, he's one
of the dnest chaps in town. By golly, I have it! Since he's a perfectly
good friend of Molly mine, Ill have him over right away. No doubt he's
tearing his bachelor heart to bits at the Union Club."
Molly's heart skipped a beat and then raced on at a frantic gallop.
"Please, Jack! Please, don't!" she begged.
But Jack had ded to the telephone.
With cold extremities and a fast beating heart John Henry Walton
responded to the telephone summons in the club.
"Hello! That you, lValton, old man?"
"This is Forbes. Say, Walton, we have a little Southern cousin here.
Turns out she knows you. If you dont mind a family party, just beat
it over. XVe'll hold dinner until you get here. If you're here in time you
may go in with her. I'll resign the honor reluctantly. Are you coming?"
"Am I coming? You bet your sweet life!', yelled WValton as he
slammed down the receiver.
In four minutes and a half.John Henry XValton, without the aid of a
taxicab, was at the Forbes door.
"Back the same day, Nichols," he smiled.
"You haven't seen me before this evennig, You know."
"Certainly not, sir."
"Am I in ti1ne?U he asked breathlessly as Jack Forbes drew him into
the drawing room.

Molly led him to the dignified lady on the sofa.
"Aunt Marcella," she said, "this is Mr. Walton. My auntl Mrs. Ran-
dolph. Walton bowed.
"Where," asked Aunt Marcella stiffly extending her hand, "did you
meet my niece?"
John Henry coughed slightly.
"My first meeting with your charming niece was most memorable.
She was doing Red Cross Work-er-"
"Oh, yes! That's a favorite occupation of Molly's."
At this juncture dinner was anounced. Molly allowed her cousins
and her uncles and aunts to precede her to the dining room.
'tln the name of all that is heavenly, tell me your name," begged
"Darling!" murmured Molly.
"Angell" retorted John Henry. "But your name--I shall surely have
to know it, dearest lady. I'll spill the situation if you don't tell me."
"Molly Darling is my name," she blushingly replied.
It was John Henry's turn to blush..
"Molly Darling! Nothing, nothing in all the world could suit me bet-
ter, unless it might be Molly Chrysanthemum!"
"And now-please hurry, they're sitting down, they'll notice we're
lagging behind. But first where did we meet? Aunt Marcella will ask
the time, the place and the opportunity."
"Molly Darling, you may trust me to deal diplomatically with Aunt
"But where, please where, Mr. John Henry Walton, did we really

Mr. John Henry Walton glanced affectionately at the chrysanthe-
mum in his lapel.
"Molly Darling, we met by the grace of God at The Sign of the
Chrysanthemum ! "
One afternoon in August, the sun was shining mercilessly on the
burning hot land. The crops were withering, and even the hardy weeds
were showing the effects of the hot weather. The air was hot, and felt
like it had been heated in a red hot furnace.
The chickens could be seen panting in the shade of the barn. The ani-
mais in the pasture, too, felt the heat. and stood by the empty water
trough, waiting to quench their thirst. Fido, the dog. no longer cared to
chase after the rabbits in the woods, but was lying in the shade, with
his tongue lolling out of his mouth, and panting like a. steam engine.
All nature was waiting for the sinking of the red sun beneath the
horizon, to be relieved of its suffering caused by the intense heat.

The Fable of the Two andolin Players and the Willing Reformer
A very attractive Debutante knew two young men, who called on her
every Thursday evening and brought their inandolins along.
They were conventional young men, of the kind you see wearing
spring overcoats in the clothing advertisements. One was named Argail,
and the other Ignatius.
The mothers of the neighborhood often remarked, "VVhat perfect
manners Argail and Ignatius have," and it may be added that the young
men were more popular with the mothers than the younger set.
The Debutante's name was Myrtle. Her parents were very watchful,
and did not encourage her to receive callers, except these young men
who escaped the parents black list.
W'hen Argail's cousin, Red, came from Indianapolis he saw Myrtle,
and as he watched her reversible plaid disappear around the corner, he
asked Argail if he knew her well, for he had noticed he had spoken to
"I know her quite well," replied Argail coldly. "She is a charming
"She is more than that, she is a Queen of Sheba. Now when are you
going to take me around to see her?"
Argail naturally hemmed and hawed. For he knew Myrtle was
of a most excellent family, and it was not to be supposed that she would
crave the society of slangy old Red, who had an abounding nerve, and
was as fresh as mountain air. He was the kind of a fellow who would
see a girl twice and upon meeting her the third time, he would go up
and straighten her cravat for her, and call her by her first name.
Put him in a strange company, enroute to a picnic-and by the time
the baskets were unpacked he would have a blonde all to himself and
she would have traded her fan for his college pin. If a fair looker on
the street happened to glance at him hard, he would run up, seize her
by the hand, and convince her they had met before. And he got away
with it too.
Upon entering a parlor car at Indianapolis. he would select a chair
next to the most promising one, and ask her if she cared to have the
shade lowered. Before the train cleared the yards he would have a porter
bringing her a foot-stool. At Bellefontaine he would be asking her if she
wanted something to read. At Marion he would tell her she resembled
Maxine Elliott, and showing her his watch left to him by his grand-
father, a prominent Virginian. At Martel he would be reading the menu
card to her, and before reaching Galion, they would be looking out of the
same window and be old friends.
Now Ignatius and Argail had seen Redls work, and knew that if he
presumed to be forward or free with Myrtle, she would be offended and
blame them for bringing him to the house. But Red insisted and said
that he had never yet been disqualified for crowding. So they decided to
escort him to the house.
As soon as he had been presented, Red showed her where to sit
on the sofa, and placed himself about six inches away and began to
buzz. He said the first time he saw her te took her for Miss Prentice,
the most beautiful girl in Indianapolis, only, when he saw closer he
knew it couldn't be her, as Miss Prentice did not have such lovely hair.
By telling her fortune he came nearer to holding herl hand in eight min-
utes than the other young men had come in a lifetime.
"Play something, boys," he ordered, and after they had played three
pieces, while Red and Myrtle were out looking at the new moon, if you
had put a few potted palms in front of them, and two cards from the
union, they would have been the same as a hired orchestra. They went
to the window and looked out, and saw Red and Myrtle sitting in the
hammock, which had quite a pitch toward the center. He did not have
his arm around her, but he had it in a line parallel with her back, while
he was bracing himself. So they left, very indignant, without saying
goodnight. In the next two weeks he kept Myrtle very busy, sent books
to her mother and let her father take chips away from him in poker. So
they were married in the autumn and the mandolin players acted as
Morale-To get a fair trial of speed, use a pace-maker.

Her Knight Comes A-Riding
Ellen Kennedy sat on the front porch and waited for the school bell
to ring. Ellen was a very pretty girl with heavy dark hair and dark eyes.
The Kennedy's had lately moved to Galion so Ellen had not had
time to get acquainted with any of the other girls. She was lonely and
disliked Galion and it's inhabitants.
Suddenly there was a clatter of hoofs on the driveway, and Ellen
jumped up to see who might be riding into her yard.
The rider was in Armor and in every house girls were either watch-
ing from the windows or standing out in their yards.
Ellen wondered what it could be about and then the Knight sprang
from his horse, came over to where she was standing, bowed low and
asked for the rose which she had so carelessly placed in her hair. She
thought she was surely day-dreaming.
She gave him the rose and stood expecting him to tell her what it
meant, but he Without a word of explanation rode rapidly away. Ellen
watched the horse and rider out of sight. Then she turned and went
slowly into the house without a word to anyone.
Ellen was to graduate that spring and a week later her brother took
her to the -Senior Dance. She happened to think about her former ex-
perience on her way to the dance. At the entrance of the hall some of
the girls spoke to her about it, but she said nothing.
Tom, her brother, left her at the door of the girls dressing room and
went to fill her program.
Ellen certainly looked lovely that night in her pale pink dress and
her dark hair piled high on her pretty head.
When Tom returned a few minutes later, she was nowhere to be
seen. Supposing Ellen was still in the dressing room, he sat down to
wait for her. After a while he began to grow restless and wondered what
had become of his sister. As the first notes of the grand march were
sounded, Tom was about to go in search for her.

Just then another young man who was waiting for his partner nudg-
ed him and said, "Look at Bob Housten's partner, she is certainly a
beauty. Lucky girl all right. He is the most popular boy in school, won-
der who she is."
To Tom's amazement Robert's partner was his sister. "How does
she happen to be his partner?" he asked the young man almost indig-
"Well," was the reply, "the custom here in Galion is for two mem-
bers of the fraternity, who are the most popular to go to some girl he
likes and ask a favor of her. After they have received the favor they have

"Every girl in the high school wants to be asked by one of the two
for a favor and especially from Bob, He is captain of the base ball team
and he won honors at the district oratorio. He won the class honors
too, and any girl would be proud to be asked by him. Some of the girls
think it isn't right for Bob to ask some girl who isn't as popular as him-
self. I, myself, don't know who the girl is."
Ellen was the belle of the ball that night, and wherever she was
standing, there was of course a group of girls and boys, and not alone
because she was Bob's partner.
After this dance, Ellen received invitations to every party, dance
and social functions that were to be given in Galion in the next month.
If she was lonely before, she was far from it now. The next day
when telling her mother about it, she said: "Before I fairly hated Galion

On the Way to the Rockies in Alberta, Canada
It was early on a morning in August, when we started out for the
Rocky Mountains in covered wagons. It was one of the beautiful Indian
summer mornings fthat only Canadians knowj, when all the air smells so
good of burning pine, and the skies are beautiful with specks of clouds
and colors of dawn, that our family and another climbed into two large
covered wagons, ready to start on a pleasure trip to the mountains in
good old settler style. VVe had a cow behind each wagon, to furnish
milk, a stove in each wagon to cook our meals on and there were two
beds in each wagon, to sleep on primarily and to sit and eat on when
it was meal time, and sit and watch when we were on the trail.
Being thus started it was about noon when we came to the Ver-
tigree Coolie. This is a beautiful, deep valley, with 'sides almost verti-
cal in some places, a fact which we learned to our dismay when trying
to go down into the valley with our wagons. VVhen we were there, we
stopped and stayed there for a while to go about to see all the beauties
of nature to be found in such a place. There were four of us children
and we immediately started out by ourselves to see the sights. There
were great clumps of cacti about, showing their yellow blossoms and
formidable thorns. Besides these, there was little other vegetation
except near a pretty little river flowing through the center of the Cool-
ie. We soon came to the other side of the valley where there were large,
white stone cliifs, some covered with moss, others white and brilliant
in the Canada sun.
One cliffe in particular delightted us, for it was a tiny cathedral,
resting on a stone base and made with four regular stone columns, and
surniounted by a peaked white stone roof. Of course, this was a crude
cathedral, but it was amazingly true for Nature's work. Then, there was
a strong resemblance of a human face on one clih' which disappeared as
we came near it. Also we found still another strange form. As we were
walking among the cliffs! we came upon the nicest little stairway, which
I never have believed was the work or Nature.
Late in the day we had to move on so we left this pretty spot for
ohers more beautiful. For several days we journeyed on, gradually leav-
ing behind us all familiar places and coming into new, more sparsely
One morning we came to the Blood Indian's Reservation, which is a
tract of land about eight thousand square miles. Here we saw true Indian
life, somewhat disappointing in it's common-place air. There were tents
scattered about, in groups, with Indians lounging about the outside, and
some watching the many pretty ponies wandering about in small herds.
As we went around the end of the reservation, we did not see the dress
and manners of the people-only the tents and ponies, so we did not
stop, but went on our Way.
After many days of traveling, we came to the Belly River, a large,
madly rushing river now very cold and ugly looking on account of the
bad weather we had had for a few days. Since there was no bridge across
it we prepared to ford the river. our wagon followed the other one and
we started across. When the first wagon was obout in the middle of the
river it struck a large rock in the bottom and the harness of one of
the horses broke and the team stood still. The man driving could do
nothing but get out and tix it, so he rolled up his pants as far as he could
and started out in the cold roaring river. He finally lixed it with much
difficulty and came back into the wagon, and then we all went across
safely. However that man felt the effects of his wading out of season
the next day. Shortly after this we left the Belly River district and went
on toward our destination.
The first place of importance that we came to after we left this
district was a large cattle ranch, which we learned to be the Menden-
hall Ranch. This was a great tract of land with thousands of cattle herd-
ed about near the house, which was a typical rancher's dwelling. As
we were driving through there, the cattle were attracted by the strange
sight which we made so they crowded close to us. Father was walking
beside tl1e wagon to keep the horses quiet when a great black bull came
up behind our wagon. He was a very old bull seemingly, with a wicked
face, covered with black curly hair, and he had no horns, only a massive
bony ridge across his forehead. Then another bull came up. This was a

red and white bull, a trifle smaller than the other and younger, with
long, sharp horns. Now if you know the ways of range cattle you will
know something of what the situation was. Every herd of cattle has a
leader, the strongest bull in the herd, and he is the monarch of that
herd. He tries to conquer other leaders, so he may be a greater leader
himself. So when these two bulls, each a leader of a great herd of cattle
came together, there was an instinctive enmity formed then and there.
They fought each one holding the other at bay. Then the black one
turned and backed under our wagon and backed farther until we were
trembling for fear our wagon would be upset. All this time the other
cattle were pushing closer and closer, and father was up on the tongue
of the wagon, with not even a gun to protect himself with, and without
a possible chance of climbing in the wagon, on account of the cattle.
Then the bulls fighting began slowly to back away until they were gone
far enough that the cattle released us from their hold and started past
By this time, we were coming close to the Rockies and after about
two more days travel we were safely in the mountains. Here we put up
our tents and made our camp comfortable to say the least. We slept on
real pine bough beds-and rested in spite of the hooting of the owls, the
squeaking of the chipmunks and the howling of the wolves and coyotes,
far up the mountains.
The next day father and the other man went up in the mountains
to hunt mountain sheep, goats and deer. They were successful too, for
they shot a majestic mountain sheep. For a week they hunted, while
we children ran about seeing wonderful things. There was only one
mountain near that we could climb. This was a red stone one, low, with
comparatively gentle sloping sides. Even this was hard work for young-
sters, and we had to crawl on all fours to keep from rolling down.
Thus we spen- fl week, then we moved on to a different place and
stayed there for a few more weeks. During all this time the men had
caught one mountain sheep, three mountain goats-one grown and
two kids, and several deer, besides some small game, fish, ducks, geese
and grouse. VVe youngsters employed ourselves picking kinnil-kinnick
and junniper berries, hunting chipmunks, making parks in the sand,
hunting spruce gum and doing as many more other thingse as possible.
After five or six Weeks had passed we started home by a different
route, very sorry to leave the grand old Rockies. Now, I have told you
only a few of the most interesting events, but for fear of wearying you,
I will end my story.

DARKNESS AND SUNSHINE-Concluded
It is morning and the sunshine streaming
through Jimmie's win-
dows caused him to forget the terrors of the night before.
Glorious, golden sunshine, which made the dew on the leaves and
grass, sparkle and shine like so many beautiful diamonds.
Sunshinex which sent shafts of rainbow light through the rippling
waves of the dancing brook, and caused the hair of two little girls, mer-
rily running down a long sunny lane to turn to gold.
Sunshine that had waked the birds and sent them into raptures
of golden melody, and that had peeped into the window of the little sick
girl across the brook, and had surprised the smile that for many a day
had not been seen, on her face.
Glorious, wonderful sunshine that waked the world to gladness and
caused Jimmy as he ran down to breakfast to sing and skip with the
joy and happiness of a new day.

Somewhere in France
"I think it is perfectly terrible," remarked Jeanne's mother, "that
Germany declared war on France."
"I do too, I'll finish my second course in training here and then go
over there to do my bit in the hospitals," replied Jeanne.
Jeanne La Salle was a French girl who with her mother lived in
America. She had been in this country a year when the European war
That evening Leonard Filmore came to the La Salle home to call
on Jeanne, who was his staunch friend, in fact they were to be married
soon. But this war broke out, and then. VVell, while Jeanne was Hnishing
her course as a trained nurse, United States declared war on Germany.
Leonard pleaded with Jeanne to marry him, soon after the war broke
out, but she replied,
"NO, I wontt, I can't, I must go to France and help her win the war.
Since I have Hnished my course I'll let France use me."
After a few moments on the part of Leonard, she said,
"I intend to leave immediately, and hope that the war will be over
soon so I can return to be with you."
She left her foster-country for her native land and was soon using
the skill she acquired in school at the Base hospital.
She wrote to Leonard often-in fact every time she could. Though
she loved him, she thought she had to do her duty to her country first.
As the time passed the letters from Leonard ceased coming. After
some time elapsed, a letter came, saying:
"I have joined the Aviation Corps and I expect to be in France as
soon as I have Hnished my course here, which will be a matter of only
a few weeks."
The time soon passed and he was on his way 'Over There' to ex-
tend his training in French camps.
It was about this time that Jeanne was moved to another district
to the Main Base Hospital and on account of the congested mail service
her letters to Leonard were held at various stations on the way.
"Oh! if I ever see Jeanne," Leonard often thought, "I shall be
Afier hard training, he murmured, "I shall write to Mother and the
dear ones at home- Of course, I can't write to Jeanne for she told me
in one of her letters she would be moved anytime."
He wrote to his mother, saying: "Mother, I never knew how terri-
ble war was until I had to be away from you and Jeanne. If I could only
write to her, I should be satisfied. I have just finished a hard day, prac'
ticing a few difficult feats in the air. I am proud of the fact that you
and father furnished me with the tools, toys engines, and my work
shop, when I was a kid. For it shows that I have fond thoughtful par-
ents. And to know that I am throught of as the best driver in the air,
makes me feel that I am worthy of Jeanne."
Just at this time he was interrupted by the special delivery agent,
who handed him a letter from Jeanne, which read:
'tDearest, Leonard! You didn't know you were so near your beloved,
I know. I was reading the paper and while reading the Camp Lorraine
news, I recognized your name. Upon further reading I found out it was
you. VVhen you get your first leave, pray, come over to see me. It will
he delightful for me to see you and I have it all planned how we shall
pass the timef'
While in the field one day, he was ordered to take some medicine to
the Main Hospital some few miles from Camp Lorraine. His heart was
light and happy at the thought of seeing Jeanne. But alas-in his speed,
he lost control of the engine just a quarter of a mile from the Hospital.
The fall resulted in a badly broken arm. The machine was torn in shreds.
"XVhat a wreck I um in," he said to himself "if only they hear my
signal! I feel unable to walk any distance."
They heard his signal and the ambulance was soon on its way in
search of the hero. They found himexhausted from the heat, but luckily
he had saved the valuable medicine.

"Oh, girls," squealed Dorothy as she entered May's room. Sicily and
May came to their feet at once. They hadn't seen Dorothy so cheerful
since a scene between her and Tom which had occurred the week pre-
"I have just received a letter from motherf' continued Dorothy,
Hand she says she would be delighted to have you girls come home with
me next week. Now donit beg oif. You just simply must go."
"Your mother is a dear," chorused Sicily and May.
"Of course, we're going."
Then the three of them danced around the room in their ecstacy.
For the remainder of the week they were as light-hearted as they
'tWon't it be just grand? Mrs. Hattler always gives us the best
times!" exclaimed May.
"Oh, I can hardly wait to see what surprise she has for us this
time," was Sicily's reply.
"Listen, girls," remarked Dorothy on the day they were leaving
for her home. "NVe'll have to make different arrangements. Mother sent
me a sample of thread and I had forgotten all about it yesterday, so
now I'll just have to go and get some like it. I'm sorry it has turned out
this way but why can't we all meet at the station. They all agreed and
about an hour before train time Dorothy was walking the busy thorough-
fares of the city.
"Now I have forgotten where to get that thread and I suppose the
last place I go will be the place to get it," were some of Dorothy's
thoughts. And sure enough the last place was where she found it.
She had already spent too much time buying thread when she re-
membered she must get little sister something. But Dorothy was not
thillkillg of time when she discovered a certain little doll on the counter.
"Ah this is just it," she was thinking when she rooted out a small
bow and arrow from a stack of toys.
"Now that is just it. Sister is different from other girls, always play-
ing Indian. More like a boy I should say,', were more of her absent mind-
As she came to Main street, she just missed a car to the station but
another would be along in a few minutes, so she waited for it. But when
they were about half way to the station a wagon broke down on the
track ahead of them. It was too far to walk and neither taxi nor jitney
were in sight.
i'Well if it isn't one thing, it's two," muttered Dorothy under her
I thought I never would get that thread matched, now if I miss that
train on account of scarcity of vehicles, Flli. She didn't let herself
finish that thought for the next instant it iiashed through her mind
that the train might be late. She sped on at a very brisk pace and
reached the station-
'tHas the 5:45 train for Chicago left yet?" she managed to gasp.
t'Just about ten minutes agoj, was the agent's reply.
Meanwhile the girls at the station had waited patiently.
"Are you sure it was she?" demanded May.
'Tm sure," returned Sicily. t'Do you suppose I could ever miss that
dear little hat of hers. There is nothing like it in all the world."
"Well, then I suppose that she has missed us and we have missed
her but let's hurry or we won't find her when we get on the train."
Dorothy had come to herself again. W'hen she discovered the girls
had gone on without her, she telegraphed her parents telling them when
she would come. I
The next train was due at midnight and it was an anxious wait. At
last, after what seemed ages to Dorothy the train arrived and she was
on her way home. She was just thinking for about the ninety-ninth time
how sorry she was to have missed the train, and not only that, but she
was getting out-of-sorts.
"If I had only"-and she was aware of a strange man addressing
her and sitting down beside her.

After a few trivial remarks he began to shower her with such ques-
tions as an intimate friend might ask.
"Where are you going?" he asked at last. Dorothy wanted to scream.
She opened her mouth but her voice had suddenly ceased to be. What
could she do! She clutched the seat nervously and asked the man to
"please go." At this he returned a sneering smile at her and Went still
"Welll when we get to Chicago, I suppose that's where you are going,
I'll see that you have a good time," he drawled.
Dorothy could not stand it any longer or at least that's what she
thought until she remmebered that the few people that were in the car
were foreigners. But soon the train stopped with a jerk and three young
men entered. Dorothy recognized the athlete from the college across
the river from Valparaiso, but she knew she was a perfect stranger to
him. The man beside her became a little more polite but still she was
alarmed and she cast meaning glances at the young man.
The athlete came to her rescue.

Dorothy returned the greeting with a false name.

brother were very good friends and after that Chester and Dorothy saw

One little realizes the important part played by the scientists at
the front. These learned men have as great a work and do as efficient
work as the man with the gun. They must overcome all obstacles and
make the efficiency of the army the highest possible.
Take for example the chemists. When the Germans began the use
of "gas," the leaders were awe struck. Unless something was done im-
mediately, the whole army would be destroyed. The case was taken at
once to the chemists who soon devised a helmet which would protect
the wearer from that horrible death. This was a very crude affair but
it served its purpose. They, of course, set to work to perfect the helmet
and now have one which seems almost perfect and which affords ample
protection to the wearer. These chemists are constantly experimenting
with explosives, seeking a more powerful, more destructive agent.
Another great work is the work of the Geologists. They constantly
study the composition of the soil, and in this way note places where
dug-outs may be safely constructed and where gun bases may be built
in safety. They also study the country showing where trenches may
be constructed to a good advantage. VVe iind the walls of the bunks of
these men covered with little maps of all descriptions, some marked
"Dig here," "Quicksand," "Marsy ground " "Unhealthful." This gives

SCIENCE AT THE FRONT-Concluded
the army a definite description of what kind of country they are going
Another scientist who plays a very important role is the weather
man. His work consists in taking observations of the temperature and
prophesying the weather. He tells the kinds of weather which make
aerial activities possible. This serves a two-fold purpose: First, in-
creases the aerial work in the camp and also causes them to be on the
look-out for the enemy air raids. He foretells coming fogs, under which
troops may be easily moved. He also notes the coming storms and has
the troops prepare for them,
An expert mechanic can also find employment almost anywhere in
an army camp. The place where he is most needed is in the aviation
department. The planes are constantly being broken in some way. The
engines need constant attention and overhauling. This requires the at-
tention of experts. They are also studying the different types of planes
to Iind the most serviceable models. They also watch the weaknesses
and work to eliminate them. They are constantly working to increase ef-
nciency of their line. These mechanics are also needed in other lines.
These are replacing and repairing guns. They study the old weapons
and try to eliminate the weak points in them, also.
Then there are the engineers. They are kept busy in building roads,
bridges, repairing buildings, laying telephone wires, etc. When new
ground has been captured these men move the camps forward to the
most convenient places. Also when a retreat is ordered, the engineers
must see that the camps and supplies are moved back. They also must
see that the soldiers in the first line trenches have supplies. Direct com-
munication must be had between the base and the trenches. lt sometimes
keeps the engineers busy keeping these lines intact in a heavy bombard-
ment, as the shells will break the wires almost as soon as they are
Thus we see that the life at the front is not composed wholly of
men with guns, and that just as much is done toward the gaining the
victory behind the lines as in the trenches. This work is neither easy
nor entirely free from dangers. Many a gallant young scientist has met
his death in this work. This work requires even more skill and prepara-
tion than a soldier's duty and is just as important.

There have been some changes in the Imperial Cabinet and in the

of the government. But these changes do not seem to us to have an im-

say that the process of democratizing the Imperial government is go-

them is a terrible failure. The enlightenment will come in time.
It must not be forgotten that this great world war is entirely unlike
any other recent war. It is not to be won simply by military effort, with
all the subsequent conditions to be laid down by the victors. This is a
war in which the objects are, to some extent at least, to be gained as
the war goes along. Its principal object is to prove to mankind the su-
periority of the interlacings of a world-Wide civilization over the separ-
ate groupings of national units. It is not Germany alone who must
abandon those phases of nationalism or empire-seeking that are harm-
ful to humanity, as a whole. Each nation is undergoing something of a
change and is facing the need of making its own due concessions to the
It is understood by the leaders of American thought and action, that
the country must organize itself completely and resolutely during this
year of 1918 for helping the Allied cause to prevail. But there is no lack
of confidence and the American view is not panicky. It is perceived
that for strictly military purposes the Germans, fighting from inside
lines, have many advantages. But all the other advantages are with
the world-wide coalition that opposes Germany. The one logical chance
that Germany had to Win the war lay in the success of the submarine
campaign. With the relative failure of the submarines, the Allies could
afford to proceed deliberately because the future was surely in their
While it is eminently necessary that the United States should have
an army, it would be better if all the men were not put into army uni-
forms. This is not on our part a war of soldiers, but one of farms, ma-
chine shops, ships and supplies. Russia had too many men in uniform,
too few guns, too little ammunition and a shortage of food. ltaly's col-
lapse was due to shortage of food, coal, steel, artillery and supplies.
France needs our wheat, our aeroplanes, our steel and other supplies
far more than she needs our boys in the trenches. We have some of-
ficers of repute in the army today, who demand that the United States
should send at the earliest convenience from three to five million men
to the iighting front in France.
The Germans could desire nothing so much as this kind of mis-
directed energy which would seriously imperil the cause of the Allies.
Our agriculture, our war industries and our land and sea transporta-
tion facilities are the American essentials in this war.
VVe are in great danger of making a standing army too fast and
taking men away from agriculture and industry. The most highly skill-
ed and most essential labor in the country is what ignorant people call
"ordinary farm labor." It takes longer training to make a good farm
laborer than an officer,
We sympathize with what France has had to bear and sympathize
with the French desire to have our men in the trenches, but we can-
not Iinance the war, feed Europe, build ships and create War supplies
for our allies abroad and at the same time maintain an army of several
million men, four thousand miles away from this source of supply.
The Senior Literary Societies
The one subject which all the seniors in the High School, no matter
what course they are taking, pursue in common, is English Literature.
This fortunate circumstance led to an innovation in the Literary work
early in the year. The interest of all the students in the current affairs
of the country Was quite lively and it was determined to take one period
bi-weekly from the study of the past and devote that period to the

THE SENIOR LITERARY SOCIETIES-Concluded
present day literature. Our source books were to be the best standard
magazines of the day. Each section organized itself into a literary so-
ciety with president and secretary, officers to be changed every six
weeks. Program committees were appointed by the presidents from
meeting to meeting to arrange and assign the work. A number of very
interesting sessions were held by the societies. Magazine articles were
reviewed and discussed, and the officers presided over the meetings
with commendable grace and eificiency.
This work would seem to be of a somewhat rambling and indefinite
nature, nevertheless it proved to be of value to the students. Besides
giving an opportunity to discuss topics of the day, it brought out the
talent for public and extempore speaking, and revealed also to the class
what members were capable and could be trusted with responsible po-
sitions. lt gave opportunity to display the qualities of leadership, as well
as literary ability, lt led to a better acquaintance with the literary gen-
ius of the class, than could have been gained in the regular class work.
It was the desire of the two groups to hold a joint meeting, but no
suitable opportunity was found and the project had to be dropped.
One day in April the afternoon section was favored with a visit
from three alumni of G. H. S., who were home from college on their va-
cations, Paul Schaefer, Lloyd Hoffman and Don Mueller. They very
generously contributed to the success of the meeting by maknig extem-
pore speeches on their impressions of our work, and on their exper-
iences at college.
In the years to come we shall look back upon this part of our work
with more than ordinary pleasure and interest.
Poetry is likened to a human face. Every face is a human face, but
they are all diiferent. So with poetry, all poetry is called poetry but
there are different kinds. VVe ind poetry describing the beauty of na-
ture, also poetry reavealing the terrible life of the nations in war. and
many other types. Poetry is a yearning on the part of the writer to
reach up above himself to a beauty he dimly apprehends. The terms of
the beauty change with the ages, but the beauty itself is supreme and
John Masefleld is the most akin to Chaucer of the modern poets
adapted to narrative poetry, not only in temperament but in literary
manner. A brief sketch of his life will reveal to you a career very pe-
culiar for a poet who wrote poems of beauty and character. John Mase-
iield was born at Ledbury, England in 1874. VVhen a small boy he ran
away from home and shipped as a cabin boy on a sailing vessel. He
spent some years before the mast, tramped on foot through various
countries and finally turned up in New York. He worked in the old Co-
lumbia Hotel, on Greenwich Avenue and had plenty of opportunity to
study human nature in the bar-room. Later he entered a carpet factory
in the Bronx, but he was the last man in the world to become a "carpet
knight." He bought a copy of Chaucer's Poems and stayed up until dawn
reading it, and for the first time was sure of his future occupation.
He was not a vagabond, who, without learning or education sud-
denly became a poet, he had a good school education before going to
sea, and from his earliest childhood he longed to write and put his
dreams on paperg he read everything he could put his hands on, and
toil, afloat and on shore he had the mind
uncivilized creatures, his ears were as-
during all the years of bodily
and the aspirations of a man
He mingled with rough,
saulted by obscene language, spoken as to an equal. He saw the ugliest
side of humanityg yet through it all, sharing these experiences with no

trace of condescension, his soul was like a lily. Every poem that he has
written reveals two thingsg a real knowledge of the harshness
of life, with a nature of extraordinary purity, delicacy and
grace. I suppose you now wonder what it was that saved our poet. It
was, perhaps, that final miracle of humanity, acute selfconsciousness,
stronger in some men than in others, strongest of all in our creative
All the glamour about our present renaissance of poetry, carries
with it a palpable dangerg the danger of disintegrating criticism. The
influence of that kind of criticism can do more harm to American poetry
than any other influence whatever. The harm it does is by misrepresent-
ing the art. If the public heeds such criticism, audiences will deminish
and the consequent discouragement of the poets themselves will pro-
duce a decline in creativeness.
Fame and fortune for the modern poet are the gifts of public recog-
nition and appreciation, and if these do not come before youth advances
to that vague borderland where it is lost, the modern poet gives the
best of himself to other things. The thing criticism should remember
today is, that it must be studied as American poetry.
Are poets dreamers and impractical folk, shirking the real business
of life? No better answer could be made to this query than the roll call
of those who have exchanged the singer's robes for the khaki. As far as
America is concerned, and considering the brief time we have been in
the war, our roll of poet soldiers is one to be reckoned with. First in
point of time, for surely among the first to spring to the ranks was
Joyce Kilmer. Just beyond the draft age and with a little family. Uncle
Sam not only had no legal claim upon him, but would have probably hes-
itated to take him from more immediate obligations, but this did not
deter one whose blood beat to a martial as well as lyric strain, and not
waiting to go through an officers training, he cast in his lot with the
million others whose distinction is in service alone.
Joining first the Seventh Regiment of New York he remained in
it for part of the period of his training, but coming to suspect that the
Pape 74 .
Seventh might, according to its traditions, be content 'to achieve its
glory elsewhere than on the field,-he succeeded in getting transferred
to the "Rainbow Division," with the Irish Regiment, formally famous
as the "Fighting Sixty-ninth." This proved a shrewd guess, as the Sev-
enth is still at Spartanburg, while the "Rainbow Division" with its Irish
contingent has been for some months in France.
The last thing before leaving for France, Mr. Kilmore read the
proofs of his new book of Verse, "Main Street" and other poems issued
as an autumn publication. The collection is perhaps unduly weighed
down with religious poems, which are not his best, although the sonnets
are excellent, but who can resist the whimsical charm of "A Blue Val-
entine," or the human note of "Roofs," or of "The Snowman in the
Yard?" If childhood, domestic love, and religion have inspired most of
the poems in Mr. Kilmer's volume, that is not to say that they are less
authentic, for where shall one iind more legitimate themes than, child-
hood, domestic love, and religion?
What a spirit all the soldier poets show, who lift the cup of battle
to their lips as if it were the Grail! Even more willingly, almost blithe-
ly, Charles Hamilton Sorley surrendered his life that spanned but twenty
years. His volume, "Malborough," and other poems are full of the sol-
dier's dedicated gladness.
lt takes a high spirit to go to death with a song, but Sorley did it,
and exhorted his comrades to do it, in lines of hasty and immature tech-
nique, but of the temper of heroes,
Horror of wounds and anges at the foe,
And loss of things desired, all these must pass.
YVe are the happy legion, for we know
'l'ime's but a golden wind that shakes the grass.
There was an hour, when we were loth to part
From life we longed to share no less than others.
Now, having claimed this heritage of heart,
What need we more, my comrades, and my brothers?

The Junior Red Cross
The Junior Red Cross is a means by which the boys and girls in
school can serve the whole world. By it, they can help the sick and suf-
fering people in Europe and also in our own country. This teaches them
to be good citizens.
The plan of the Junior Red Cross was adopted by the War Council
of the American National Red Cross on September 3, 1917. The Chapter
committees and school officers are under Directors throughout the
Any school can join the Junior Red Cross. The school authorities
must first give their consentg the pupils must take a pledge that they
will earnestly do Red Cross work.
The purpose of the American Red Cross is to help people when they
are overcome by some unexpected disaster. lt serves those suffering
from tuberculosis. At present it's work is in helping the wounded and
sick on the battlefields and behind the lines in France and Belgium.
The Junior Red Cross aids the American Red Cross by making ar-
ticles of clothing, securing money, but most of all by their spirit. About
150 pupils of Galion High School have pledged themselves to spend an
hour each week doing Red Cross workg the girls in sewing and knitting
for the refugeesg the boys doing any kind of work that is asked of them.
We have nearly completed 31 garments for women refugees, and are
working on as many dresses for children, while a number of girls are
After the clothing is made, it is delivered to the chapter or Branch
of the Red Cross in our city. Then it is sent to the Headquarters of the
big division in Cleveland, to which our branch belongs. There the ar-
ticles are carefully packed and sent where they are most urgently need-
ed. After they reach their destination, they are received by the American
Red Cross "over there," unpacked and sent to the people who need them
President Wilson says the Junior Red Cross will bring opportuni-
ties of service to communities all over the world and guide the service
with high religious ideals. It teaches how to save in order that suffering
children elsewhere may have a chance to live.
The splendid work of the boys and girls shows that they are the
best possible Red Cross members. Some of them are even bringing their
fathers and mothers into the great army of Red Cross workers,
UFEMININE lVlT"! snorted Mr. Grumpus. "There ain't no such
thing. A woman can never see a jokcf,

Grumpus, "when she said l must have been blind to marry you."
'tWhat do you mean by that?" demanded the puzzled husband, who
had boasted that a woman could not see a joke.
XVomen have always been witty from the very moment Eve clever-
ly made Adam share with her the responsibility of biting the apple. The
world has not always given her credit for wit, but this has been largely
due to the fact that not so many generations ago it was considered bad
form for woman to express an opinion in public, at least
Today, according to a very noted book reviewer, three-fourths of
American wit is feminine-that is, expressed by clever XVOIUEH.
The somewhat acid wit of New England women is of the most
laughable type. Perhaps not so very deep, but quick as a flash and of
the sort that forces an instantaneous laugh. One of the best examples

of this concerns a hard-working, sour visaged old maid. One day a rag-
ged tramp called at her door. She was upstairs and came hurrying down
in no good humor.
"Please, ma'am, I've lost a leg ml"
"I an't got it"! she snapped, slamming the door and going back to
her work more grim than ever. It did not occur to her that she had been
But most feminine wit is of the happier, more subtle sort, although
no more spontaneous than that of the old maid who would not be held
responsible for the tramp's missing leg.
Gail Hamilton was as clever in her every-day conversation as in her
books. A dear old clergyman once took her mildly to task for express-
ing rather lenient View of a noted Morman who had four wives. This
clergyman, by the way had just married his fourth wife.
There isn't much difference between you," she said.
"My, My! How can you say such a thing?" demanded the clergyg
man quite aghast.
"VVell, it's like this, our Mormon friend prefers driving four abreast,
While you prefer driving tandem,"
Marietta Holly, who made our fathers and mothers laugh over her
"Samantha Allen" books, was, of course, a professional humorist, but
she possessed wit of the sort that flashes instantly upon sight, but real
provocation. She was on an excursion one time, where it was necessary
to walk nearly two miles to the grove along a hot, dusty road.
"This is going to be a grand excursion," some one remarked.
"lt is what I call an exertion after pleasure," answered Marietta.
Later she incorporated the incident and the remark in one of her books
Real Wit, of course, is not studied. It hashes out from the nimble
mind when any incident gives the possessor of that mind the inspira-
tion. VVomen are notably famous for that sort of wit.
There was a sort of "experience" chat among the members of a
certain woman's organization in Boston a few years ago. Among them
was Miss Marion Howard Brazier, past middle age but sprightly of wit.
She had no marital experiences to relate, so naturally could not take
much part in this talk, but now and then she said something quite to
the point, as in the instance of the tired-looking woman who complained
"Bo you know that in all the 30 years I've been married, my husband
has never one single morning got up and built the fire!"
"What a man!" gasped one sympathetic matron.
"Man!" chipped in Miss Brazier, "why she didn't marry a mang
she married a tire escape!"
A woman with the mentality of the late Julia Ward Howe could
not escape being witty, since true wit is one of the hall marks of a keen
mind. lVlrs. Howe was forever making remarks that were quoted and
repeated around and around that famous old literary circle in Boston
in the days when Boston was deserving of her reputation as a center of
Mrs. Howe was well acquainted with the famous Charles Sumner.
One day he mentioned to her that he had declined an invitation to a

in the individual."
"Why, Charles!" exclaimed Mrs. Howe, "even God hasn't got that
A certain critic not long ago attempted to explain the increased ex'
anzples iso he saidj of women's wit with a statement to the effect that
women were reading more and had picked this up from the reading of
what brilliant men had written. But the critic was quite wrong. Very
little girls are frequently as witty as the most cultured and best read
women. Not long ago one little girl was visiting her grandmother in
thc country. Grandmother was tacking some mosquito netting to the
door and dropped a handful of tacks. A greedy hen, not stopping to see
what they were pecked at a few and swallowed some.
"Oh, my goodness, Gran'ma, I bet you that hen's goin' to lay a car-
pet!" was her exclamation.
Another girl, old enough to be studying about interest, banks and
finance, listened while her mother related how the neighbor's little boy
hail swallowed a dime.

"You could say he was having financial troubles, couldn't you?" she
Look through the standard magazines of today and you will ind
more really bright, witty stories by women than by men. Somehow
women seem best able to stand off, as it were, and view the general
trend of things with greater calm and with a Iiner idea of the ludicrous
than men. Even if the point is sometimes a dig at femininity itself, Wo-
man does not hesitate. To Helen Choate Prince, niece of Rufus Choate
is credited this:
"A sense of being well dressed gives to woman a tranquility which
even religion cannot bestow?
Years ago, when horse busses took the place of the present-day tow-
ering gasoline juggernauts on Fifth Avenue in New York City, the witty
Grace Greenwood was taking a ride. A man somewhat worse for too
many drinks staggered in and found a seat between Miss Greenwood
and another woman. At every lurch of the cumbersome vehicle the man
would nearly lose his balance and lean heavily or clutch wildly at the
knees of the women on either side for support. Finally he managed to
get to his feet by bracing himself against both women and staggered
"What a dreadful savage!" exclaimed the strange woman.
"Yes," smiled Miss Greenwood, smoothing her dress, "one of the
Pawnee tribe, I am sure!"
The plump, lively YVidow Jones, always fond of good food, was pes-
tered to death with a miserably. lean, ill-tempered widower who lived
on the adjoining farm. He was also noted I aside from his general stingi-
ness for being a cranky and strict vegetarian.
"Now, look here. Brownf, said XVidow Jones, firmly, after one of
his proposals, "you don't want me. XVl1at you need is a grass widow."
Both Horace Greeley and Susan B. Anthony were named for pres-
idential honors, although only Mr. Greeley got so far as a nomination. If
Wit were a test of presidential efficiency, the honors would have gone
to Susan. At a lecture Greeley shouted: "The ballot and the bullet go
together. You women say you want to vote. Are you ready to iight, too?i'
'tYes, indeed, Mr. Greeley," interrupted Susan B.. "we women are
ready to fight-at the point of a goose-quill, the only way you have ever
A great many women have felt rather angry at Oliver Wendell
Holmes because he described a women's tea party as "Giggle, gabble,
gobble and get."
What will these women say when they learn that Mr. Holmes wrote
that famous wit, Kate Sanborn, to the effect that those words were real-
ly not his own, but a description of a woman's tea party that he got
from a very clever Boston woman?
seek the ideal woman," shouted the suffrage speaker, "but
there's no such thing, no more is there an ideal man. Who ever saw an
ideal man. Who ever saw an ideal woman?" she asked.
There was no reply.
"Who ever heard of an ideal woman?' she demanded.
A meek little woman arose.
"Our sister here thinks she has heard of an ideal womanf' said
the speaker, sarcastically, "well my good woman, kindly enlighten us."
"My husbands Iirst wife," replied the meek woman.
A rather shiftless farmer had been reading French history with in-
terest. "Do you know, Maria,', he asked, closing his book, "what I'd done
if Iid been Napoleon?"
"Yes, I know, you'd have settled right down on a farm in Corsica,
and let it run to ruin and grumbled about hardluckf' replied his wife.
There is a story my mother used to tell of a very pompous man
who had a meek little wife. He seldom took her out, but once she went
to a reception at an otTlcial's house and the pompous husband intro-
duced her as though he were making excuses, saying with a smirk, as he
adapted the old quotation, "a poor thing, but mine own."
His meek little wife, courtesied and replied:
"A poorer thing, but mine ownerf'
"Papa," asked a little girl, "if I don't get married, will I be an old
maid like Aunt Susan?"

ever going to learn not to bring in the nest egg?"
"'Im afraid not,', he complained, "you get me a pencil and I'll write,
"This is the nest egg on that china egg."
"Now father," his daughter said, "don't you think you've got a little
better business than bein' secretary to a hen ?',
One of the oldest stories of womans wit concerns the woman who
declared she was going to ask Shakespeare whether he or Bacon wrote
the plays when she got to heaven.
"He may not be there," chuckled her husband.
"Then you ask him!" she said.
A well-known spinster author had a business appointment with her
publisher and he sent word he would see her in ten minutes. His caller
kept him busy half an hour. Finally he came out to, her and exclaimed,
"You still here? VVhy, my dear woman. I wouldn't wait as long as that
for any man."
i'You wouldn't mind half an hour if you had waited 45 years for one,"
she answered him.
It was a little girl who said, "Adam was so lonely that God put him
to sleep one night and took out his brains and made a woman out of
Of course the truth is that woman has always been witty, but the
average woman was, for so many centuries relegated to the kitchen that
she never came into her own, as it were.
In all of the old-time courts of Europe, there were one or more wo-
men famed for their wit. Once upon a time about all that the women
of the house had to say at dinner when guests were entertained was:
"Won't you have some biscuits?" or "Jane pass the cake to Mr. Stuff-
un." But today she enters into the conversation. She does more, she
holds up her end of it, and adds more than her share to the flow of wit
that runs around the board.

"No you can't," answered his father. "The hired man has positively

down on the head of the thief and was scratching and picking him, The
thief, taken by surprise, was very much frightened, and dropping every-
thing he niade for the door. But Tom standing there with his gun block-
ed the only way of escape. By this time, Mr. Brown, who had been
awakened by the noise arrived on the scene. YVhen the thief saw Mr.

Extracts from the Diary of Theophilus Thistle, Ph. D.
August 16, 1917
'Upon my word, I must confess I feel rather put out. I fear I have
taken quite a rash step but really, I fail to see how I can remedy it now.
I will set down the events just as they happened, to prove to myself
conclusively, that I am not at all to blame. lt all began, of course, when
I met one of my former pupils, Thomas Emptihead. He was attired in
a khaki-colored suit of rather peculiar cut, and was looking positively
happy. Considering that the young gentleman had been requested to
forego the pleasure of graduating a few years before, on account of eer-
tain escapades better left unmentioned here, it was quite a surprise to
observe that his disgrace had apparently left no traces of repentance
or of shame on his countenance. He greeted me with the inane words,
"Howdy, Prof., how's the bugs?" It is impossible to describe how my
sensitive soul recoiled at this tlippant speech that I. Professor Theophi-
lus Thistle, Ph. D., who had already gained considerable reputation by
my research into the evolution of the Hbiciphalous insidiorsinuatusn
should be addressed in such a manner! I immediately drew myself up,
and replied with fitting dignity, "Sir, you seem to be considerably more

interested in the subject of bacteriology than when you were in col-
lege," But-he did not seem at all crushed by my chilling remarks, and
merely answered with a laugh, "Yes, I've had considerable experience
with some of your beloved bacteria lately. I've just returned from the
trenches over in France, and while there, I encountered an entirely new
species of bug." My coldness vanished immediately.
Here was a kindred spirit, a fellow pioneer in the great path of
Knowledge. With an effort to conceal my eagerness, I queried in a slight-
ly trembling voice," Could you describe your new discovery?" "And have
you named them yet?" "Well, he drawled, "I hardly know all their pecul-
iarities, although a few of them have been impressed upon me. As to
their names, well, the soldiers call them "Cooties." They haven't any
two mile long Latin prefix yet. But say, Prof., why don't you go over
and discover 'em right? Vivesect 'em, magnify 'em, electrify 'em, and
call 'em something fancy, and you'll make quite a name for yourself."
For a moment I stood with confused thoughts. He was right. But is
there any possibility of reaching the habitat of this insect?" I asked."I
understand that there is considerable difficulty in securing passage for
foreign countries. on account of-er, now, what is itg--oh, yes,
on account of the war we are having, I believe, with some nation or
other." "Get across," he ejaculated, "why my dear old chap, nothing
could be easier. Just come down to the recruiting office with me and
tell 'em you want to be a soldier. Then they'll send you across free of
charge, and all you'll have to do will be to tire a few shots across at
the Boches once or twice a day. The rest of the time you can spend in
the study of yourlwhat are you going to call 'em? "The Theo-
philii," I replied promptly. Naturally, one of my quickness of thought
had already decided on a cognomen which should not only raise the
insect to the level of scientific research, but would also add honor to
me, it's discoverer.
The young man flung back his head and roared with laughter. XVhen
he had recovered sufficiently to speak, he gasped, "I beg your pardon
Prof, but if you only knew the bug, you'd know how appropriate that
name will be. And now, come on, and I'll take you to the nearest recruit-
ing station." I hardly think it necessary to record in detail the examina-
tions and questionings I encountered there before I was accepted. I was
greatly disappointed to learn that I would be unable to go to France im-
mediately. It seems they have a queer notion about training me to carry
and manipulate a gun before I can go abroad. I offered to take my ser-
vant, Huan Chu Yin, with me to perform such trivial matters, but they in-
sisted that I do it myself. So I am to go to Camp Corican in the morning
in order to acquire an insight into intricacies of the mechanism. As I said
before, I am a triiie uneasy as to the outcome of my hasty resolve. But
gain will surely compensate for any
the fame which I cannot fail to
trivial annoyance to which I may be submitted.
Camp Corican, Sept. 1.
Outrageous! Indeed, that is hardly a sufficiently emphatic word to
express the indignities which have been heaped upon me since I came
to this miserable community. Had I anticipated one truth of the suffer-
ings I have endured I would have foregone all thoughts of fame. But
alas, one cannot tear aside the veil of the future, nor blot out the mis-
takes of the past. I am, apparently, "in for it" as my tent-mate as
quaintly expresses it. VVhen I think that I, Professor Thistle, am actually
compelled to clean my boots, make my own bed, dig ditches like com-
mon laborer, and walk miles under the blistering sun--well the
thoughts actually make my blood boil with indignation.
I have not had time to keep up my study of Greek and Latin, and
I had scarcely entered the camp before they confiscated the expensive
laboratory apparatus I had brought along to assist in isolating the "theo-
phuliisf' I am compelled to close this entry, now as they have an absurd
idea here that we should all retire at the same time.
January 13, 1915.
I am writing this on board the ship bound for France. I made several
futile attempts to escape the severe regime of the training camp during
the past few months. I am highly incensed that President VVilson ig-
nored my two letters of complaint. I do not wish to utter disloyal senti-
mentsy, but it seems to me that it is the President's duty to prevent mis-
treatment and the unauthorized confinement of an American citizen.

EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARY OF THEOPHILUS THISTLE, Ph. D.-Continued
The discipline on board is somewhat relaxed at present and of course.
we are not compelled to drill so continuously as in camp. I have been
informed by my Captain that we will enter the danger zone day after
tomorrow. I have no clear idea as to what that may mean, but from
general remarks I have heard, I gather that a peculiarly formed ship
called the submarine is found quite extensively in certain parts of the
sea. I am really quite curious to see some of these new inventions.
I have been in my birth for several days, and have been unable to
write, I believe the food has disagreed with me. I noticed a peculiar
feeling when I had been on board about one day, and a little later I be-
came positively quite ill. I told a companion of my strange and unpre-
cedented illness, and he merely laughted at me.
It seems that the lower class of people have not the same delicate
sensibilities and evidences of refinement which are found in us of the
higher, strata. However, in spite of lack of sympathy- I have recovered
from my strange attack, and am able to go on deck today.
I am becoming satiated with the sight of nothing but water and sky
for the last week. I shall certainly be delighted when we reach terra
Erma once more. Then for the trenches, and the "theophiliu." I saw a
rather peculiar sea plant or animal, I know not which, as I was stand-
ing on deck this morning, gazing at the interminable picture of sky and
water. The sea was quite deserted, and I was just preparing to go below,
when at a little distance from the ship I saw a peculiar object rear
itself from the waves. It resmbled the top of a small stove pipe, and
turned from one side to another, as though it were alive. I was about to
get my binoculars to examine it more closely when I heard a loud cry
behind me, and next minute the guns began booming, as I am of an ex-
tremely nervous temperament the reverberations affected me so that I
was forced to retire to the cabin, and stuff my ears with cotton until the
firing ceased. The captain informed us at dinner, or "mess," as they call
it. that the gunners had sighted and fired on a supmarine. I am posi-
tive he was mistaken, for was I not on deck when they began firing?-
and as I mentioned before, nothing visible except the queer sea plant.
Tomorrow we are supposed to arrive at our destination.
We are now situated in a little village several miles from the places
of conflict, or trenches, as they are called. I understand that we are to
undergo several weeks of intensive training before we are sent to the
trenches. I merely intend to stay in the so called trenches long enough
to make extensive research into the life and activities of the "theop-
hilii." Then I will secure a ship for home, and having arrived there
will astonish the scientific world with my discovery. 'kffffffff I find
that the natives here are totally unable to comprehend English. They
have some barbarous tongue in which they communicate with one an-
other. I endeavored to establish intercourse between myself and a young
lady, in the Latin tongue. I asked her in excellent Latin if she had ever
remarked any representative of the type of insect which I had come to
discover. But she merely shook her head, and replied in her native dia-
lect, "Juh muh say pa kuh voo dees," or words to that effect. I fear I
shall have to rely entirely on my own ingenuity to discover my speci-
men. But, of course, to one of my advanced intellect, it will be an ex-
tremely simple matter.
We are ordered to the trenches tonight. I am sorry that it will be
dark, as I fear the "Theophilii" will not be visible. However, it will not
be long until I discover them now.
I have been tricked, deceived. I might have known that a young
scamp like Thomas Emptihead would have no consideration for my ten-
der sensibilities and delicate nerves. I am too grieved and disappointed
to write in full how I discovered his duplicity. Suffice to say that there
are no "theophilii." never were, and never will be. Instead there are
merely-"cooties." It is difficult for me to believe that my bubble
of fame has burst. I shall hand in my resignation tomorrow.
THEY ACTUALLY REFUSED MY RESIGNATION.

EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARY OF THEOPHILUS THISTLE, Ph. D.-Concluded
I am obliged to dictate this entry to my nurse. I will endeavor to
tell a connected story of the events of the last few weeks, altho my
wound is quite painful at frequent intervals. I was detailed to keep
watch at about eleven P. M., several weeks ago. But I had no intention
of keeping watch. I knew that a person of such refinement as I, would
never be able to actually kill a German, even if I sould see one. So I
merely stood looking at nothing in particular, and wishing for my copy
of t'Horace" to while away the weary hours. Suddenly a "star-shell"
burst over No-Man's Land, making the whole as bright as day. The al-
most constant shell-iire had destroyed nearly every trace of iiora, but
near the German trenches I caught sight of something which almost
made by heart stop beating. It was a sprig of "rosens robusco" which
had, in some miraculous way escaped damage from the shot. All my life
I had endeavored to secure a specimen of this plant to add to my col-
lection, and I could scarcely realize that I had found it at last. Before
the light had died away. I had clambered up the embankment, worked
my way thru the barbed-wire entanglements, and was out in No-Man's
Land, I was compelled to advance slowly on account of the great num-
ber of shell craters and on this account I lost my sense of direction,
and could not determine just where I had seen the plant. I groped my
way thru the darkness however, and my hands soon encountered the
wires of a barbed-wire entanglement. Thinking I had wandered in a
circle, I was about to crawl back into the trench, when a voice out of
the darkness rumbled, "Wer geht da!" I was quite paralized with fear,
and for a moment I could not answer. Then, endeavoring to make my
voice quite firm, I replied, "I am Professor Theophilus Thistle, Ph. D.
I wandered here in search of a "robeus robuscof' but I did not intend
to disturb you. I sincerely beg your pardon! I was about to retire grace-
f,1lly, when someone leaped forward and dragged me between the barbed-
wires. inflicting injuries which were very painful. I was marched into
a rude "dugout," my hands were tied, and I then had liesure to look about
me. Before me stood four men in gray uniforms. I judged they were
Germans. One of them began to talk to me, in broken English. He,
"strafed" me, my father, mother, aunts, uncles, my country, president,
and Hag. He finished it by firing his pistol at me point-blank. I had been
busy loosening my bonds during his harangue and as the bullet bit into
my flesh, I seemed to go quite mad. When I was a little lad, I frequently
fought with older boys, and won, too, 'F "' 'K it But all the blood-thirst-
iness of my childhood came back to me, and I sprang at the four men
with nothing but my bare hands as a weapon. I have no clear idea of
what happened afterwards, except that after the four Germans had
been overcome and tied, I lost consciousness.-The "Sammies" made a
raid on the German trenches about an hour later, and were surprised
to iind no one there, except a wounded American and four Boches who
were just regaining consciousness. The Germans had retreated to the
next trench, leaving only four men to cover their retreat. I really
fail to see that I have done anything especially commendable. Yet my
commander has praised me quite highly it appears. And yesterday the
French commander came to the hospital, pinned a Croix de Guerre on my
breast, and kissed me on both cheeks. I could easily have dispensed
with the latter.-----I no longer have any desire to hand in my
resignation. As soon as my wound is well, I'm going back into the
trenches and show the ---- Boches that they can't put anything
over on Theophilus Thistle, Ph. D.

Foot Ball Season 1917
With the graduation of ten of the regular players, including the en-
tire back held, the football prospects for the season of 1917 looked dark
indeed. When practice was announced, there was no dearth of material
to choose from, though the candidates were in the main light and inex-
perienced. After a few weeks of hard practice the first game of the
season was played here on September 29, with Greenwich as the op-
ponents. It was understood by us that we were to play a high school
team but when the visitors arrived it was found that we were to play
the heavy Greenwich city team. The game was rather slow, owing to
lack of practice and experience, but Galion High made up in speed and
teamwork what it lacked in weight and experience and the visitors were
defeated by a 6-0 score.
The next game ,was also played here, New London being the victims
This game afforded excellent practice for our team and was hardly
more than a steady march for New London's goal, the final result being
52-0, our favor.
On October 9, the football season really:,.began. The Ashland team,
with visions of an easy victory dancing beforetheir eyes, prepared to
do battle with the G. H. S. warriors. And it was a battle, from the start-
ing of the game to the close. For two periods the teams went scoreless
and it was not until the latter part of the third quarter that Dunn went
over the line for a touch down, amid wild shouts from the Galion "root-
ers." ln the last quarter, Dunn also made a most beautiful drop-kick from
the thirty-yard line, this score proving to be one which won the game
for about a minute before the close of the game, Ashland, by use of the
ancient "dead man" play, made a touchdown and kicked goal, the score
being 9-7, with Galion on the long end. This game was declared by many
to have been the hardest fought and most exciting game ever played in
The following Saturday the team, minus Flick, the scrappy full-
back, who was injured in the Ashland game journeyed to Kenton. It
isn't clear yet just what was the trouble, whether it was the loss of
Flick, or the fact that we were heavily outweighed, or the new sensa-
ticn of playing in front of a hostile crowd, but certain it is that the
team literally went to pieces, and we were beaten 46-0.
October 27, the Delaware team was played during a driving rain.
This team had been piling up high scores on the neighboring teams, but
Galion, still smarting from the Kenton defeat, held them to the small
score of 12-O. Flick's back was again injured early in the game, Ber-
singer taking his place at full-back. h
Our next game was with the Tiffin High School at Tiffin. The team
was sadly crippled, Monroe and Weber being absent fromf the line-up,
and the whole team playing out of form. About one minute after the
start of the game Flick electrified the crowd by intercepting a forward
pass and running thirty-five yards for a touchdown. Dunn kicked goal
and the score stood 7-0 in favor of Galion. However, the weiglft of our op-
ponents soon began to tell in their favor and at the end of the first
period the score was 12-7, Tiffin's favor. During this period our team was
further weakened by the loss of Sweeney who suffered a broken collar
bone. When the game was resumed our team went into it resolved to
even the score or at least hold them, but the odds against us were too
great and the game closed with us on the tag-end of a 39-7 score.
Saturday, November 10, our big game was played with Bucyrus,
that ancient and hated rival as the antagonist. The game was speedy
and exciting throughout, though it became evident early in the game
that Bucyrus' hopes of winning were very slim. ln the third period, Dunn
intercepted a forward pass, eluded the Bucyrus piayers and chalked up
six points for Galion, Ledman follownig suit in the next quarter, Bu-
cyrus scored a safety in the third quarter and a drop-kick in the last
period, making them a total of 5 to Galion's 12. ln consequence of this
victory the team was treated to a most excellent chicken dinner, the
expenses being defrayed by Mr. Plott.
The Mount Vernon team, fresh from victories over teams such as
Mansfield High and Zanesville High came here expecting little trouble
in vanquishing the Galion team. Also down in our hearts we were not so
confident of victory, as our lips and careless smiles indicated. Like the

FOOT BALL SEASON 1917-Concluded
Ashland battle, from the very start it was a hotly contested game, the
result being in doubt until the referee's whistle blew ending the game.
First the one team seemed to have the advantage, then the other, both
being scoreless until the last quarter. It was about the middle of the last
period when it happened. Mt. Vernon tried one of those short snappy
passes on which they had been making good gains, and Dun intercepting
it, ran half the length of the field for a touch-down, this brilliant play
winning the game for us. The Mount Vernon aggregation departed a
sadder and a wiser team. A game scheduled the next Saturday with
Sandusky failed to materialize because of the deep snow covering the
ground at that time.
Thanksgiving the final game of the season, and to most of the team,
the final game of their High School career was played. the Alumni fur-
nishing the opposition. As a thriller this game ranked with the Ashland
and Mt. Vernon games. The Alumni team was composed of such well
known stars as Motsch, Lisse, Pfeifer, Schreck and others, while the
High school team was assuredly at its best, the speed. teamwork and
training of the High School team evidently balanced the age, weight,
and experience of the Alumni team, for the final score was 0 to 0. In this
case a tie was equal to a glorious victory, for it was confidently expected
that Galion High would be defeated.
Thus closed the football season of 1917, a decided success. Too much
credit can not be given to our Coach, Mr. Plott. It was due to his patience
and unfailing labor that we were able to emerge from the season with
only three defeats after having on our schedule some of the strongest
teams of the state.

Personal Notes-Foot Ball
GEORGE DUNN. "DID"
Captain Dunn, by his clean and plucky fighting, won for himself
the respect, not only of his team mates, but of all the boys on the op-
posing teams. His broken field running was a feature of every game. On
defense he was a tower of strength, especially at breaking up forward
passes and tackling. His position at half-back will be hard to fill next
RALPH NESS. MAGGIE."
Ralph was shifted from half to end about the middle of the season,
at which position he distinguished himself in breaking up interferences
and getting down under puntsg he is also a Senior and his service will
be missed next year.
GEORGE DALLAS. 'AGOLDYJ'
Quarter-backs must be born, not made. Evidently Dally was born
under a lucky star. Altho inexperienced at quarter, toward the latter
part of the season he ran the team like a veteran. Always full of pepg
striving to keep up the spirit of the team whether winning or losing. He
also graduates this year.
CLYDE BERSINGER. "HIGH POCKETSJ'
Altho this young man's brain is far from his feet they work in per-
fect harmony with each other. "Bersie,' put up a fine defensive game
both at full-back and tackleg his line plunging was very effective. Clyde
will be missed next year.
Q NEOL WEBER. "NlG."
Though small he gave a good account of himself at the right flank.
He distinguished himself by his ability to wiggle through interference,
and get his man before he had started. He was at his best in the last
game of the season, which was his last game for G. H. S,

PERSONAL NOTES A FOOT BALL-Concluded
RALPH CASS. "CASSOON."
Cass was on the job every minute of play, a stone wall on defense
and on very few occasions was he outguessed by his opponent. His
blocking was a feature of the Mt. Vernon game. He also has fought his
last battle for G. H. S.
CHARLES MONROE. "CHUBBY."
At center "Chubbyl' put up a great game on defenseg very few
gains were made through the center of our line. He could always be de-
pended upon to get the ball back to the right spot, He leaves another
gap in our ranks for next year.
HERBERT HELFRICH. "HAPPY."
A terrible fighter once he is stirred upg which sometimes took half
of a game to accomplish. His work on defense was especially commend-
ableg his indifference towards the end of the season is to be regrett-
ed. "'Happy" also graduates.
ELRA TRACHT. "CELERY."
Though a little rough at the beginning cf the season, he developed
into a dependable lineman in a short time. "Celeryi' was one of our
heaviest men, and put up a good consistent game at guard and tackle.
We will miss him next year.
JAMES ANGELL. "JlMMIE." OUR MANAGER.
The fellow in this position doesn't get much applause, as his work
is not really spectacular. "Jimmie" was on the job every night. The boys
have shown their appreciation of his efforts by voting him a G. His place
will have to be filled next year.
STEWART WILLIAMS. "STEW."
VVilliams was handicapped by injuries the irst part of the season,
but came back strong the latter part and developed into a very aggres-
sive lineman. The fact that he has been elected' to captain next year's
team, speaks well for his ability as a player, and shows the conhdence
of his team mates in him as a leader. We wish him a successful season.
GEORGE FLICK. "RED,"
It was no effort for "Red,' to play foot-ballg you could not keep him
out of it. He was kept out of a few games on account of injuriesg but he
made up for lost time when he got in the game again. His running inter-
ference and blocking was a feature of the Mt. Vernon game. We hope
Flick will resume his High School work again next year.
LEE STEWART. "BUCK-"
Stewart was another of our heavy men: who did duty in the front
line, and took care of his position in good style. A great deal of work
done by linemen which makes possible long gains is unnoticed by the
average spectator. "Buck" showed very good spirit and will be missed
FRANK SWEENEY. "SWITZER."
The team lost one of its best linemen when Sweeney was injured in
the Tiffin game. He was not outplayed by any opponent he was up
against. We are expecting great things from him next year.
KENNETH LEDMAN. "KEN."
Many a substantial gain was made possible, by a brilliant dash
around end or off tackle by Ledman. He had more nerve and pluck per
given volume than any other member of the team. What he lacked in
weight, he more than made up in speed. He will be the nucleus of our
back-field next year.
RALPH LONIUS. "LONEY."
"Loney'l played a good game at guard, although playing a little
high he usually took care of his opponent in good fashion. He will be
one of our seasoned players next year.
Others who did not make G's but helped out the team by coming
out faithfully were: Kunkel, Schaefer, Schreck, Brown, C. Mochel, D.
Mochel, Gugler, Butterfield, Cole, Hoffman. Berger, Rinehart, Wirick,
Dawson, Shaffer, Englehart and Wilhelm, Gledhill, Hottenroth, Black

Basket Ball Season-191
Was the basket ball season of '18 a success? Considering the handi-
caps under which the team had to play it was a decided success. Not
only was there a lack of good material but also there was trouble in
finding a suitable place to play. The New Armory with its slippery floor
being the only place available, we had to take it and practice whenever
most convenient for t-he caretaker.
The season was opened at Galion when Shelby was trimmed by a
52-19 score. The following week Galion's hope of continuing to win was
shattered when Norwalk defeated us there 30-9, ln this game however,
Galion High has an alibi, since, because of a little misunderstanding,
two of the regular players missed the train.
In the course of the season Galion played Hfteen games, winning
eight of them. The big treat of the season was the Basket Ball tourna-
ment at Delaware under the auspices of Ohio Wesleyan University. ln
the first round Galion defeated Greensprings 16-13, but in the second
series was eliminated by Mt. Vernon 24-7, who later proved to be North-
ern Ohio Champions. One reason for the weakness of the team was the
loss of Captain Dunn just prior to the tournament, who dropped out of
the activities of school life, already having enough credits to graduate.
Although Galion only won one more than half of their games dur-
ing the season of '18, the prospects for next year are exceedingly bright
as only one regular will be lost by graduation, also the long cherished
hope for a gymnasium will be realized since the new High School is to
be finished by that time.
Following is the schedule and results of games played:
11. Shelby 19-Galion 52, at Galion.
18. Galion 9-Norwalk 30, at Norwalk.
25. Galion 16-'Delaware 30, at Delaware.

Personal Notes-Basket Ball
Captain Dunn was not with the team all season, as he finished his
work the first semester. He made an enviable record for himself at
forward, altho this was his first attempt at that position. His floor work
and accurate passing caused his opposing guard no little worry. We an-
ticipate for him a brilliant career in College Athletics.
Ken was chosen to captain the team after the graduation of Dunn,
and was also the choice for captain of next year's team. Ledman was one
of our best point winnersg at VVillard, he turned a three period overtime
game into a victory for G-. H. S. by dropping in two field goals in the
last two minutes. We shall expect even better things from him next year.
Altho penalized frequently for his football tactics, Sweeney was
one of the best H. S. guards seen this year. Not only guarding his for-
ward, but when he dribbled down the fioor he usually caged the ball.
Sweeney is a Junior, and ought to be in fine trim next year.
Another Senion, who will be missed next year, "Aggie" played a
good consistent game as stationery guard, at which position there is
no opportunity for grandstand exhibitions. Ness developed some accuracy
on long shots, which were needed sadly in several games.
Robert is very much at home on the basket ball fioor, having had
previous experience. His work at Center was one of the bright spots in
many a game. "Bob," as well as the other boys on the team, showed
very good spirit in co-operating to develop team work, so that it is dif-
ficult to pick out any particular stars. "Bob" also has another year, and
we expect it to be the best ever.
"Celery" is another Senior, who broke into the game for one season.
Although rather inexperienced the first of the season. he developed into
a very aggressive guard. VVe shall miss him next year.
MOCHEL, C. AND
The twins not only look alike but their style of play is very simi-
lar. They were pressed into service after Dunn's graduation, and put up
an excellent brand of basket ball. It is unofficially rumored that the
first toy these youngsters had was a basket-ball. They will be with us
three more years, as they are only Freshmen.

One dreary night, not so very long ago.
Ethel pondered in the parlor, with Carl her Be-aux.
His rosy cheeks were now one flask of red,
And thus made the place all the more dead,
All went well till it was time to go home,
And then a little plan rose up in Carl's donie,
He had always been kissing other girls good night
And never yet had it ended up in a fight
He planted a kiss quickly on her fair cheek
And t'was iniinediately rewarded with an awful shriek.
The first crack landed on his ear with a loing
And when he toppled over he heard birdies sing
And from that memorable, awful day until this
No girl has Carl ever tried to kiss.
