H. S., WE, THE CLASS OF 1920 AFFECTIONATELY DEDICATE THIS AEOLIAN Page Three ' % zs Aeolian is the best effort of the class of 1920 in summarizing the happenings of a most eventful year. May this volume prove to be an inex¬ haustible source of genuine pleasure to all true friends of the Bust.vess Mgr .anLeab Mam ' ie Rahme ITTLE Mi ldrOT ' V vnHauTKFi TTSSa Tebter- ssiE Phessler Jussie Rafferty Page Five THE AEOLIAN It is perhaps very fitting that we should first of all comment on the name which we have selected for our year book. It is not original with us, but is the heritage which the Garrett high school received from the class of 1919. We have tried to fill these pages with the sort of material which might appeal to you as forcibly as the clear and beautiful tones which characterized the wonderful Aeolian harp of the days of old. Every class perhaps desires to be different from the preceding one, and in this respect the class of 1920 was like all others. We confess that we considered chang¬ ing the name of the yearly high school publication. But after careful examination we discovered that we could neither improve on the name, neither could we find one which expressed our hopes more suitably than that of the present volume. We have been content to carry on the name. May other classes be big enough to follow the example and identify the Aeolian permanently with the Garrett high school. OUR ORGANIZATIONS It is true that our first duty in school is to comprehend the serious nature of our work and the great responsibility which is incumbent upon every boy and girl who enjoys the benefits of American education. However, even then it is certain that our institutions would be incomplete were they to teach us how to learn without giving us an opportunity to practice some of our ability to learn. This latter fact explains the existence of the many activities in school and it justifies the prominence which such interests receive. In the Garrett high school during this past year activities such as those created by the Glee Clubs, the Orchestra, the Debating Club, class organizations, Dramatic Clubs, and the Athletic Association have aided materially many pupils in finding their proper place in life. When the above facts are considered, is it any wonder that we plead with everyone to boost the organizations and activities that tend to enhance the service which the high school stands ready to give to us all? THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION ,There is but one society in the school which extends membership to every pupil. Because of the universality of its appeal we feel it necessary that a custom should be established whereby every person in the high school would feel the necessity of membership in the A. A. Our responsibility to this organization does not cease, however, with the mere payment of our dues. We should be interested in insisting that every able bodied person in school identify himself with one or more of our teams and make the new gymnasium serve not merely about one-third of our students, but rather benefit them all. Garrett high school occupies an enviable position because of the success of its athletic teams in times past. We now require a student body to take up the work and carry the Maroon and Blue to greater glories. Let us adopt as our slogan that, “We will be content with only the best.’’ We want the best teams, the best yell leaders, the best coaches, and the best spirit of any institution in the country. It is then that our athletics will make our school a leader in all that is best. THANKS It is impossible to state in adequate terms the appreciation which we feel toward the loyal and efficient staff of this Aeolian. They have worked untiringly, and praise without limit is due them. We cannot say more, but we hope that this volume will re-echo the generous applause which they so justly deserve.

We were given a social entertainment and very civil reception in the High School building by the Class of ' 19, after the de¬ cision had been made to modify the initiation of Freshmen. However, some members of the class of ’19, unable to abide by the “Golden Rule,’’ gave several of our boys a very enthusiastic welcome, with the result that the latter were robbed temporarily of some of their personal beauty. Our first year in high school was occupied in those most numerous mistakes and blunders that are inevitable in the career of every Freshman class. As Sophomores, we formed our first class organization. This event was espec¬ ially important, because it was the first time a class had organized before they had assumed the dignified title of “Juniors.” The year was spent in numerous parties and social events, and we gradually began to realize the many benefits of a class or¬ ganization. When we entered old room Seven, beginning our role as Juniors, we determined to make the year a most successful one. The class was organized the second week of school, and after we had enjoyed several parties, we began to comprehend the fact that it was time to plan for our Carnival. Several busy weeks followed, with the class of ’20 working most energetically, and when the eventful time arrived, the most successful Carnival of all was presented. A large sum of money was cleared, and it was decided to expend this for some entertainment of the Class of ’19. Ac¬ cordingly, on May 5, 1919, the most prominent social event of the year, the Junior- Senior banquet, was held and proclaimed a decided success by all. Soon after the graduation of the 1919 Class, we Juniors left for Lake Wawasee, where we enjoyed a week of fun and good times. As Seniors, we have reached the zenith of our school day ambitions. On the first Monday of school forty-two old faithfuls answered the call of the school-bell and began our work as Seniors. The class organization took place September 18, 1919, and plans were immediately made for the raising of money for our Memorial fund. The proceeds from our “Movie” show, which amounted to sixty-five dollars, was set aside as a part of this fund. In the high school honor roll the Seniors were foremost and we were first to go “over the top” in the A. A. memberships. Our class also possesses the winner of the prize essay contest. Athletics have been made most successful in our high school this year, due to the fact that the Senior Class furnished a majority of the football, basketball and baseball candidates, in addition to three captains. We are indeed proud of our Memorial Library, consisting of one hundred dollars worth of the best books available and presented to Garrett High in remembrance of the class of ’20. It is our earnest desire that the future Senior classes will con¬ tribute to this library, so that our high school may boast an efficient, creditable school library. The social events of our Senior year have been many. We have enjoyed numerous parties, bobsled rides and “feeds.” Our Senior class play, “The Corner Store,” presented after weeks of practice, was a decided success, and most assuredly the best entertainment given during this school year. The proceeds from this will finance the Senior lake trip, which is scheduled for the week following graduation. We, as Seniors, are leaving the G. H. S. in the care of you under-graduates, expecting you to cherish and revere the old Maroon and Blue. It is our most ardent desire that the future graduating classes, following our example, will be true and loyal to Garrett High; that they will back athletics; encourage the efforts of the A. A..; and that they will help to raise the standard and character of the G. H. S. to the highest degree. —VIRGINIA PATTERSON. Page Nineteen SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY The time for my long desired vacation had arrived and I eagerly seized the op¬ portunity for enjoying these few valuable weeks to the utmost of my ability. Accord¬ ingly, early in July I began my journey by aeroplane. My trip had been delightful until one afternoon I glanced at the gasoline indicator and I discovered that my supply was low. I saw a good landing place, whereupon I decided to alight and purchase some gas begore proceeding farther. I placed my plane in a hanger and strolled up the street. Everything looked familiar and I soon learned that I was in Indianapolis. This was not only a great surprise, but it seemed delightful, for I had not been in my native state for years. At a newsstand I purchased a magazine, and imagine my surprise when I saw Mamie Rahmer in charge of this place of business. We had a lengthy chat con¬ cerning old G. H. S. days and I questioned her as to whether or not there were any more old classmates in the city. Blushing, she replied, “Yes, I know one.” Then she told me that she had married Coe Van Lear and that they were living in the city. Later when I called at their home I found Coe wearing a white apron over his dark blue suit. He embraced me feelingly upon my arrival, as though I were his long lost brother. He explained the wearing of the apron by saying that he did the washing and general house work while Mamie made the money. When I returned to my plane and began to push her out of the hanger, my eyes alighted upon Ralph Eldridge. He was owner of the hangar and was delighted to hear of my meeting with the Van Lears. I took the air and flew for about five hours. Soon I came in view of a large body of water and I alighted here because it was a famous resort. Then I rented a bathing suit, and seeing a crowd at a little distance, through curiosity I walked in that direction. Imagine my surprise when I saw they were all gathering around two fancy divers, and these were no other than Albert Trapp and Lydia Yarde. I also learned that they were advertised as the world’s greatest divers. I met Lydia and Albert later and we enjoyed a short visit, during which they informed me that Amel Swan¬ ders was proprietor of a prominent dancing academy at this resort. We visited him several hours later, and after meeting these old friends I decided to visit Garrett. It was a little late when I began this journey and consequently I was only able on that day to reach Akron, Ohio. I registered at a hotel, and worn out by my trip, I went at once to my room. I was amazed when I viewed Ralph Scisinger, mop and bucket in hand, slowly trudging down the steps. I questioned him about his unusual occupa¬ tion and he enlightened me by saying that he was the owner of the hotel, but that he did odd jobs now and then since help had become so expensive. The next morning I continued cn my way to Garrett, arriving there about 11 a. m. The place had changed unbelievably since I had last seen it. The business district was some distance from the landing ground, consequently I boarded a north bound car. The conductor’s voice sounded very much like that of a woman, and upon glancing up I recognized Isabelle Slifer. Later we took lunch together. After I had left the car and was walking along the business district I noticed posters in every window. I stopped to read one, and the following greeted my eyes: ‘‘For Mayer, Faye Sanders, Candidate on the Republican Ticket.” The picture great- I’age Twenty ly resembled Faye and I was surprised to learn that she had entered the political arena. I soon entered a restaurant and met “Izzv” as we had planned. Talking over old times I asked about news concerning many of my former classmates. She informed me that Phyllis Greene, Wilma Franks and Jessie Pressler were star actresses for the Show-down Dramatic Company. She also mentioned that Faye Miller had mar¬ ried the manager of a large automobile factory, and that Auliene Schulthess was traveling with Ringling Brothers as the Sweet Fat Woman of world renown. After my short visit in Garrett I continued my journey, and as a part of my internary I went to sunny California. At noon I landed in Chicago, where, while eating my lunch, I read in the Railroad Age Gazette that Alcie Freeze was president of the Baltimore Ohio railroad and that Franklin Lehmbeck had recently been appointed vice president. I went to their office, but learned that both of them were in New York on business. Los Angeles was coon reached and at about three o ' clock one afternoon I went to a large studio to watch the production of a real movie. The play and characters seemed familiar to me, and upon close inspection I discovered that it was “The Corner Store” which had been made famous by the G. H. S. Senior Class of 1920. After the show when I went to consult the manager concerning the success of the play, I found him making love to the leading lady. He turned toward me and I recognized my old friend, Harry Moran. Harry said that he had been all over the world playing “The Corner Store.” His company consisted of three old class¬ mates, Jessie Rafferty, Lillian Bass and Forrest Jones. Lillian and Forrest had been married for some time and now they were playing the leading roles. Harry, moreover, asserted that Harold Hughes was running a drug store in Los Angeles and that Gladys Utter who was living in a small town in Wisconsin, had married an agent for the Mitchell touring aeroplane. Marlow, he said, was prospering as a sur¬ geon in New York City. “Gob” and I enjoyed several days’ visit before I left for home. On my return I again alighted in Chicago, hoping to see “Al” and “Ben.” I found them both in Freeze’s office, and we began to talk about our Senior days in high school. Sud¬ denly Alcie turned his head away and began to cry. Ben explained this action by saying that Maurine Little had vamped poor Alcie. and later when she had spent all of his money, she left him. I asked Ben if he were married, and he smiled as he said that he was the happiest man in the world since he had married Virginia Patterson. I asked about Paul, and he said he had learned that Paul and Virginia had had very serious domestic troubles which had resulted in a divorce several years previous. As I flew over Garrett homeward bound, I could not refrain from landing and taking one more look at the prosperous city. I chanced to enter a telephone booth and in the directory I saw an advertisement of the “Fern Mann Beauty Parlor.” I called her, and Fern, in a very professional manner, told of her prosperous busi¬ ness. She became sad as she related how, on that very day, Milly Van Houten had been taken to the hospital for treatment for a nervous breakdown, but she became cheerful when she mentioned her afternoon appointments with Madge Williams and Ilo Ballentine. Both of these young ladies, who lived in the city, were married and patronized her continuously. I replaced the receiver on the hook at the close of the conversation and very Page Twenty-One reluctantly left the booth. I stopped to buy a smoke at the cigar counter, where I was confronted by Harry Rosenberry, the proprietor of the place. As we exchanged greetings, he said that Ethel Clark, Maurene Houser, Essa Teeters and Vonell Heffelfinger were all traveling with Mack Sennett’s Bathing Beauties, and that Valena Strause, who had been married to an official of the Vandalia railroad, was living at Churubusco. He had also learned that Thelma Hawver and Vernie Housel were the wives of wealthy farmers living near Garrett. When I took off several hours afterward, I continued to think of the happy lives which fortune had given to my old associates. I reached my home in Akron the next day and when I entered the office to delve into the pile of mail which had accumulated during my absence, I was greeted by Erma Griffin who had been employed as a stenographer in the manager’s office during my vacation. When I thought over my entire trip I concluded that it had been most ideal, for I had seen or located all the members of the dear old class of ’20. —CHARLES BAKER AND VIRGINIA PATTERSON. WHEN GREEK MEETS GREEK September eighth, nineteen hundred and twenty, the modern Xerxes advanced from the Sophomore class to the Junior class. It was then that the struggle, which was to continue throughout the remainder of the year, began. Xerxes met no resist¬ ance until he reached the pass of Thermopylae, which was securely held by the modern Leonidas and his gallant army of Seniors. The first struggle of importance was the race for the highest membership in the Athletic Association. After many days of struggle, first one gaining ground, then the other, until at last by the strength and power, Leonidas, very unlike the great Spartan leader of old, succeeded in holding back Xerxes and his army. Thus it con¬ tinued, one skirmish after another until the second race for members in the Athletic Association was brought up. Another decisive battle was fought, in which the Great Spartan leader, Leonidas, and his army successfully held the pass of Thermopylae. On one of the important nights in January, Xerxes, with much mockery, tried to deceive the people by bringing about the idea that Leonidas and his army had died. Leonidas, however, by a very brilliant display of his gallantry, successfully proved to those people that he and his army were very much alive and able to con¬ tinue their struggle loyally and bravely. Next came the publishing of the Senior edition of the Echo, and because of the success of it, Xerxes and his army were very jealous and again tried to deceive the people as to the existence of the Spartan leader and his people. Then Xerxes began his night raid and painted his symbol on all the walks and steps. On the following day the crisis came when the two leaders and their famous armies were called to¬ gether in a joint consul. It was then that Xerxes was forced to sign the uncondi¬ tional surrender, after which the two laid down arms and were peaceful and friendly toward one another; also they began reconstruction work rather than the destructive work which had formerly been carried on. Then on the first of April Leonidas and his army gave a brilliant display of their talent, which banished all ill feelings and ideas which the people might hold against them and gained the respect of all. —FAYE SANDERS. Page Twenty-Two “THE CORNER STORE” In a quaint, okl fashioned village store Bud Wheeler was working for his father. He had recently returned from the city where he had been dismissed from his posi¬ tion without explanation. The constabulary, Otto Guckenheimer, was interrupted in his shrewd questions concerning Bud’s return by Jerusha Jane Alvirah Ann Boggs, a country girl, but tricky, who had escaped from the poor-house. Aunt. Hannah, Budd’s mother, gave the poor girl a home. Soon Harvey Barton and Dora, Eli’s niece, arrived from the city and later Eli, too, came, bringing with him Dora’s inheritance, $61,248 in good old Uncle Sam’s currency. In the second act, while at the supper table in the room above the corner store, Harvey informed Dora, Aunt Hannah and Uncle Eli that Bud had been accused of forgeries. Eli became indignant over the “dirty, uncalled for slur,’’ when he realized that Barton, Sr., also had access to the notes on which the forgeries had been made. During the same night Eli’s guard over the $61,248 was interrupted by a crash in the adjoining room. During his absence Bud entered, wrote his farewell letter and returned to the city. After Bud’s departure Harvey stole the treasure, which was lifted from his pocket by Jerushy who was hiding behind the coats on the hall tree. When Eli returned to the room he immediately connected Bud’s departure with the theft of Dora’s money. The last act pictured the return of Bud into the home. Eli proclaimed his son’s guilt, but the latter was exonerated by Jerusha. Barton was humiliated just before the curtain was lowered. —JESSIE PRESSLER. Page Twenty-Three A. Trapp bo P. Olincjer J.

Fitch " Rosie " Page Twenty-Five CLASS OUTING AT LAKE WAWASEE During the latter part of May, 1919, we, the class of ’20 after successfully pass¬ ing the Junior year, were each and everyone diligently making preparations for that big event—our class outing at Lake Wawasee. On Monday, June 2nd, a number of young people—Seniors let’s call them— could be seen coming from every direction toward the B. 0. station. From all afpearances these individuals were unaccustomed to arising so early, as it was then only about 5 a. m. We left Garrett on the renowned B. . O. special, the “Milk- Shake.” Although a number of our classmates did not respond to the roll call that morning, nevertheless those who wete not present then arrived on the noon train. We were very pleasantly surprised when we reached Jones’ landing to find that three of the boys had gone ahead to arrange things and to meet us. Our first day was spent in exploring our cottages and surroundings. Everything was progressing splendidly until that evening when about half of the bunch discovered themselves “stormed in” at Sargent’s, where they were compelled to stay and resistlessly watch Benny’s motor-boat, which was anchored at the landing, sink to the very bottom of the lake. It was then and there that we established our reputation for supporting Mr. Sargent by playing his slot-machine, eating ice cream cones and all-day suckers, and drinking red pop. (Of course, you understand that it was only because of lack of other entertainment that we indulged in the above activities.) The following day we received an invitation from the Class of T9, who were also staying at Lake Wawasee, to visit them that evening. It was on Tuesday that Alice, Frank and Harry decided to try their luck at fishing. After assuring us of a meal of fish, they left the cottage, only to return a few minutes later to relate their narrow escape from arrest for fishing without licenses.. In the evening we were very cordially entertained by the alumni at Oakwood Park. Wednesday morning there was a discussion about the proposed motor trip to ’Cuse for provisions. Decision was finally made and about eight of us went in Frank’s car. Did we have tire trouble? Oh, no! On the return trip Ham and Gob thought it was too crowded in the machine, so they decided to walk. All agreed gladly, and judging from the expressions on their faces when they returned to the cottages at about dinner time, they surely must have had a very delightful walk. In the afternoon after enjoying ourselves watching the boys do K. M. Work, every¬ one went in swimming. That night everything went well until some “ambitious early birds” proceeded to annoy everyone else by forming a barn-yard parade and filling beds with salt. At the boys’ cottage the main feature was a nightmare staged by Gob and Cupid. The next day we were really going to have a feed—chicken, was it? Uh, huh!! Thursday night the girls gathered all dish-pans, pie-pans, spoons, etc., and very delightfully serenaded the neighbors, who appreciated it to the extent that they asked us to keep off of their landing—the following day. Besides this entertain¬ ment we were favored with a special dance by Pat who was thoroughly frightened by a crab which Ivan had found. On Friday, our last day at the lake, naturally everyone was rather down¬ hearted; nevertheless, the day was spent in cleaning the cottage and enumerating the good times which we had had during our outing. At four o’clock we went down to Sargent’s where we enjoyed a lovely dinner. Then we boarded the “good old milk¬ shake” and returned home. —MAURINE LITTLE. Page Twenty-Six THE MEMORIAL A great manifestation of loyalty to and interest in the Garrett High School was shown by the Class of 1920, when they determined that “Books” should be their memorial. This monument is one of real material worth and it will be a great benefit and joy to the students and faculty of the Garrett Schools. A well equipped library is one of the first requisites toward efficiency and pro¬ gress. We can do little in the study and appreciation of literature without a store of appropriate books to read and to refer to. As this is true in the study of litera¬ ture, so is it true in all academic work. It has been said by one of our great educa¬ tors that if to brain and tongue the wonderful treasure of possibilities called “A Book” be added, the result will be ideal condition for training boys and girls in efficiency. Books are powerfully alive, for, from them our most worthy citizens and great men have gotten their inspirations to do and be. The Seniors are now making it possible for us to do more interesting and in¬ spiring work, by giving us this library consisting of standard fiction, classics and reference books. We. as Garrett High School enthusiasts, are duly grateful for this gift and are happy for those whose fortune it is to share it. Signed: A pirate ship set sail one day Upon the sea from Garrett High.

We were seventy-five strong, but surrendered to the usual treatment in meekness and humility. During this year we supplied Un¬ cle Sam with a soldier and a sailor, Talmadge Brown and Douglas Putt. Our’s was the first Freshman class in the history of the high school to organize. We elected Francis Klein, president; Velma Fulk, vice president; James Mountz, secretary, and Chella Addington, treasurer. We selected the pansy as our class flower, and chose purple and gold as our class colors. In September, 1918, we entered the high school with much more confidence than we had had the previous year. We enjoyed our experience hazing the Freshmen, and then we settkvci down for a year of good, hard work—and incidentally, good times. Our officers were: Harold Veazey, president; Donald Alford, vice president, Chella Addington, secretary, and Ruth Harsh, treasurer. The enrollment was fifty-four. This, our Junior year, has been the most strenous of all. Our class numbers forty-two. At one of our early meetings the class decided upon the Sunkist rose as the new class flower. The Juniors boast of two of next yeap’s captains, Edgar Beeber in football, and Paul Stuard in basketball. Edgar Beeber also led the 1920 basketball five. Our organization now includes: Kenneth Bonnett, president; Paul Stuard, vice president; Rebecca Keen, secretary; Madoline Hollopeter, treasurer. We have edited the G. H. S. Echo and we staged a very successful Junior Carnival. All through the high school our class has furnished football and baseball men. This year many Junior boys and girls were on the athletic teams. The Debating Club has several Juniors as members. We have been active in support of all high school activities. It is our hope that the class will continue to work for the promotion of the best interests of the G. H. S. —RUTH HARSH. Seen at the Carnival Seen a Week. ft er Ward u n ¥j Junior at Page Thirty-Two THE JUNIOR CARNIVAL The Junior Carnival was undoubtedly the event of the school year. Its pre¬ eminence was warranted by the fact that it was not only for a class, or even the High School, but for every person in the city. The evening from beginning to end, was one round of fun and activity. The main attraction was a farce comedy entitled, “The Heavenly Twins.” After this came a minstrel show, eventuated by the Juniors performing the last sad rites for the dead Senior class. The sobbing Juniors passed around the coffin to view the dear remains of the once glorious Seniors, while the negro choir sang that beautiful hymn, “How Dead They Are.” Later on in the evening two five-round boxing matches were held in the assembly. Mr. Carroll also explained stereoptican views of France and Germany. No carnival or circus is complete without numerous side shows, and the Junior Carnival certainly was not lacking in them. With several pretty girls asking one lone boy to buy a ticket, not even a world war veteran had bravery enough to refuse. The museum and “House of Thrills” were attractions that all who missed them felt as though there was a void in their lives that could never be filled. Selling chances on cakes and other things gave the carnival the finishing touch of a regular street festival. For those who wished to indulge in the terpsichorean art, music and a room were provided where they could “trip the light fantastic.” Everyone left with the feeling that he had spent a most enjoyable evening,- and something else, too. —RUTH HARSH. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET On the evening of May 19, 1920, the Juniors cast to the winds their dislike for the Seniors and entertained them to a very elaborate banquet. One hundred and ten covers were laid for the Seniors, Juniors, High School Faculty and the local Board of Education. At 6:30 after the company had assembled in the parlors of the Christian church, they were called to the dining room which had been beautifully decorated with the Senior class colors of Red any Green, combined with the Junior colors of Purple and Gold. These decorations and the bevy of girls attired in their dainty colored party gowns made one think surely he was in fairyland. After finding the very unique place cards, the following menu was served by the ladies of the Christian church: Fruit Cocktail Roast Chicken Dressing Potatoes Gravy Lettuce with Thousand Island Dressing Hot Rolls Butter Beet Salad Celery Junior Cream Senior Cake Coffee Boston Cream Mints Mr. Carroll acquitted himself as toastmaster of the evening and between courses a program consisting of toasts and music was greatly enjoyed. 1.

The Seniors, as well as the Juniors, were delighted with the evening’s gaieties and all felt that the Junior Class had spared neither energy nor expense to show the Seniors a grand and glorious time. —VELMA FULK.

Not exactly praising o u r - selves, but just kinda explain our duties and let people know who writes and issues these Hecups. When people read our paper, little do they rea¬ lize how much real work and time is spent by this laboring staff and how hard it is for us to con¬ vince the Seniors to write up articles for us. We never fullv realized just how hard it was to collect jokes and make th Q m applicable to High School habits. And by the way the business men respond to our call for advertisement, we are sure that they don’t rea¬ lize exactly what a great booster of their business this paper is. When the staff was hrst selected we did not think of having an Ex¬ change Editor, but after we had put out about two numbers, absolutely ev¬ ery bit of material was exhausted, hence, as the result of our originality, came the exchange edi¬ tor, and since then we have been getting all our material from our numerous exchanges, and with the articles written bv Freshmen, Sophs.

I don’t know whether it is that I am really bad or that my conscience is guilty, but I surely am tormented. Of course I don’t believe in dreams, they are always opposite (as I have perceived), but they will stir a fellow’s mind and rouse his nerves. Just to show you how dreadfully bad they really are, I will relate to you the worst dream I ever had. T hadn’t any more than fallen to sleep one dark, gloomy night, until my mind became centered upon the Juniors of the G. H. S.. I don’t know why I should think of them, because they never troubled us Seniors; hut I did, and the funny thing was that they were on a journey to Heaven. How they ever got started on such a journey seems strange, hut there they were, approaching Heaven in three mammoth flying machines. At the wheel of the first machine sat Lord James Redspirit Mountz and beside him sat hisl assistant Lady Ohella Redlover Addington. Lord James was driving one hundred fiftv miles a minute, so that he might get to the Golden Gates first, hut it wa ' of no avail, as Baron Edgar Beeber, who was driving the second machine, was fast gaining on him and he had three more gallons of refu¬ tation than did Lord James. Baron Edgar ' s assistant was the fair-haired Baroness Madoline Holloneter. The first two machines arrived in good time at the Pearly Gates, and the Honor¬ able Edgar rang the bell. Soon the Juniors were heartily greeted by St. Peter. “Well.” said Baron Edgar, “two of our machines arrived O. K., hut the third must have been troubled with their reputation, for we haveii’t seen them since we passed Mars.” “Very well,” replied St. Peter, “I’ll see about it , just come right in. We have a big chicken feed ready for you. You must be dreadfully hungry.” Far behind the others, the third machine was striving to gain speed. It was being driven by Paul Stewart Esq. Poor Paul’s machine had the blues, for somehow it didn’t want to go to Heaven, and because of its nranks the Honorable Paul began to think he would never get his fellow-passengers to their destination. His assistant, the Princess Gladys Sherman, was worse than no help at all, for she had been asleep all the way, and still showed no signs of waking up. After two hours of hard labor, Paul E ' -q. finally got started and drove un to the Golden Gates just as St. Peter had.t em locked after admitting the two machines. When Paul Esq. kindly asked to be admitted, St. Peter refused, and Paul, in a fit of agony, began to plead t at if hi« assistant had been half as efficient as Lord James and Baron Edgar’s, he would have gotten there on time with the others. “Young man. " replied St. Peter, “do you remember how you shamefully treated those Seniors of the G. H. S? How you thought they were dead and hung a crepe on their door and painted the town red and black with your horrid 21’s? When they put on the ‘Corner Store’ you refused to wear their tags, too, didn’t you, young man?” “Yes,” solemnly replied Paul Esq. “Well.” said St. Peter. “Alas, you lost ones are doomed. I just telephoned Master Satan that the members of Paul Esq’s machine were coming to see him and that the Lady’s Gladys. Madoline R.. Creede, Veln;a. Rebecca, and the Lord’s Donald and Kenneth were included in their number. Go, T say, I only let the others in by mistake, but T can’t remedy that now, but I will prevent you from entering St. Peter’s Golden Gates. So long, you late Juniors.” Alas, Juniors, its only a dream. —JESSIE RAFFERTY. WONDER JUNIORS KNOW— Where can a man find a cap for his knee? Or a key for the lock of his hair. Can his eyes represent our high school? Because there are pupils there. He has a heart but where is its doe? Noah saved of each specie a pair. In the Bible man learns all things that are good. Should he then use this same book to swear? In the crown of his hat what jewels are found? Who travels the bridge of his nose? Can he use in shingling the roof of his Is Freckles a book or spots on his face? Is his waist line a wire or a rope? Was his chest originally meant for tools? Or just a storage for hope. mouth, The nails in the end of his toes? If he loses his balance, will it ever be found? Can he be honest and still take a nap? Will he when he is hungry Catch a hare of his head in a trap? Let him use this word hope as a slogan If he stores it away in his breast. Though he’s not able to answer these ques¬ tions. He can still hope he’s as bright as the rest.

Page Thirty-Nine SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY The Sophomore Class became conspicuous in the current year of Y8 because of the fact that they had a larger membership than any other class of the high school. Soon after our entrance into the G. H. S. the class of ’21 gave us a very hearty initiation and reception into this new whirl of school life. During this ye ar we or¬ ganized the class and chose for a motto the one word, “Success,” to which we have since adhered closely. Our flower was the red rose and our colors were maroon and old gold. Our Fre liman year passed very swiftly as well as successfully and in the fol¬ lowing fall fifty-eight loyals answered the call of the old school bell by appearing in the H. S. assembly room. We then reorganized, electing the following officers: President, Marion Hoyles; Vice President, Margaret Eckart; Secretary, Kathryn Pat¬ terson; Treasurer, Helen Lantz. Miss Sembower became our class advisor. Throughout the entire year we participated in all athletics and social activities of the High. Perhaps our most successful accomplishment came during the latter part of May when we presented the play, “The Missing Miss Miller.” We will continue to follow our motto, “Success,” and we hope in our Senior year that we may be able to change the motto to “Succeeded.” —HELEN LANTZ. Page Forty THE SOPHOMORE DICTIONARY We are all proud of our Sophomore class. It has many a bold lad and fair lass. So I’m going to relate to you A record of them all, that’s very true: Well, to begin with, I name Harold Aldridge, A boy who is to be found always. Next Thelma Applegate who is so small. And not the least little bit tajl. As a football player Lewis Briner falls in, When around we all expect to grin. Francis Caffery is all the boys’ choice, At whom some day we’ll all be throwing rice. William Chaney is a very shy chap, And is forever taking a nap. Stately and tall follows Paul Cree, Who for his lessons is always ready. Let me present a farmer to you, Floyd Davidson, who always has his lessons to do. Hazel Dickson, a very bonny fair lass, Who never to a teacher returns any pass. Proud and stately comes Amelia Dirr, Who is a very studious and ruly girl. Lucile Elam is quite talkative sometimes, And never by the school laws abides. Margaret Eckhart is so very sweet, She, I find, will be hard to beat. Lucile Elson is bashful and shy And blushes when a boy passes by. Another farmer lad I beg to present— Otis Fitch who from school is never absent. Next in our record is slim Oscar Fitch, Who of a Junior knows anything you wish. Bernard Fouch I now put in his rightful place; He has black hair and a handsome face. A very coy maiden is Ruth Gerhum, When the boys are around she invaribly runs. Farmers, lots of them, are in this fold So Hazel Griffin, a Sophomore, as good as gold. Eunice Guthrie has very black hair; One of the lasses who is very fair. Another from the rural districts comes— Maynard Hall, who for the car has to run. Ruth Hanson comes to school in a Ford, Still in her head much knowledge is stored. Oh! behold Leah Harrigar, a very jealous lass, The best little flirt in the Sophomore class. Gerald Haver frequents the cars to Fort Wayne, Never minding how hard it rains. Dale Harvey is the girls’ ideal man, Also I have found a magazine fan. Next, little in statue, but mighty in mind, Sadie Haynes positively won’t be left behind. Now Lillian Heinzerling has an awful desire To make all the boys’ hearts catch afire. Walter Higgins has little to say, And you can see him studying every day. Mary Hinklin likes best to act a fool, And she doesn’t obey a single school rule. Carl Geiser whom Mr. Garber bawls out, Page Forty-One Then Cornie from the room goes to pout. Another football player you have in your midst, Marion Hoyles, who was out for the season with one good hit. From the north regions comes a little girl, Jeanette Imler, who has a cute little curl. Elizabeth Kell displays with unusual grace A real curly head and a bright, shining face. Maurice Klingler, the Doctor’s brave heir, Who for the girls, 1 regret to say, doesn’t care. Anywhere you look you see Helen Lantz. She has a fine way of giving Latin chants. Kenneth Martin hails from the South, Generally he knows what he is about. Fern Menges is also a country maid; So I’m proud to put her name on this page. Cecil Miller is a Sophomore true, He lauds his class as the Juniors do. Another Miller here put in his nose; Merrill, his name, now we will expose, Also a chap called Harlan Moore, Who is incessantly tapping his feet on the floor. Jesse Ober, another we are proud to own, And each eve is seen plodding his wea ry way home. A very gay creature is Miss Helen Ott. Does she like Geometry? She says she does not. Kathryn Patterson you all know well, Who for a Senior of 1919 fell. Another member I record is Everett Peck, Who is never heard but what he says Heck. John Pierce will be remembered as small, But we believe he knows as much as them all. Clara Ramsey is a new classmate, And surely the Sophs should thank fate. You, in your midst have a coy little girl, Whose head by a Senior has been set in a whirl. Irene Reese from the North does arrive And then to her seat in the rear she does fly. For so small a boy, Walter Rosenberry Is always making noise, though seasons vary. Ethel Sherman, for a girl, is studious; Very quiet, dignified and pious. Kathryn Smith is a true blond type, Who to a Jack in the Navy writes. Glen Stewart is a true Sophomore, And none of his subjects do him bore. Ronald Stoner, commonly known as Jack, For giggling, indeed certainly has a knack. Very tall, bright and oh! so grand, Is Bertha Tindall with always a book in hand. Clare Vanaman a red sweater does wear; He has blue eyes and very light hair. Randall Weatherspoon is our ladies’ man, For wherevpr the girls are, “Slippery” is on hand. Mary Yarde thinks all her studies a joke, So on her way to school she does poke. The last that I name is Nona Quigley, Generally found chewing Wrigleys. Now I have mentioned every one And you will know they have lots f fun. By and by the time will pass. And they will be the Senior Class. —MILDRED VAN HOUTEN.

Page Forty-Five FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY “School days, school days, dear old Golden Rule Days,” was the melodious music, accompanied by the ringing of the old school bell, that aroused the Freshies on the morning of September 8, 1919, and made us realize that a very important time in our school life had arrived, namely, our advent into high school. The proverbial “Green Freshies” may have applied to our looks, but not to our feelings, for we thought ourselves to be most important and our enthusiasm was at high tide. Our class was composed of fifty-one bright pupils who added greatly to the appearance of the assembly room. Many boys, anticipating the free hair cut, which is usually given the “freshies,” had allowed their locks to grow until they resembled some of our famous poets— but thanks to the faculty and the authority displayed, the practice of hazing was discontinued. By this time we felt we were the favored class and our importance was beyond description, until one fatal day when we were notified that the Fresh¬ men would not be organized, and then we thought, “Little Freshies are to be seen and not heard.” However, this ruling was changed after the first of the year, for the faculty realized that we were a very energetic group. We. had proved that we were always ready to do our bit. On January 19th a meeting was held and the following officers were elected: David Stockman, president; Carol Addington, vice president; Arlo Gephart, secretary; Thelma Dawson, treasurer. Our class flower is the pansy, and our motto, “The elevator to success is not running, take the stairs.” We have held several parties which were verv successful, and we have tried to show our high school spirit at all times. All Freshmen are members of the Athletic Association and supported the high school at every opportunity. In conclusion let us say that our first year in high school has been delightful, and we will anxiously await our Sophomore year and hope our classmates have enjoyed the companionship of the Class of Twenty-Three. —HELEN MCDONALD.

It gives the school more prominence in the community because the entire student body is enlisted in an effort to boost and better the school. The society keeps the entire student body and faculty in closer relationship because of the social and athletic activities that from time to time occur in the school. The Athletic Association keeps in touch with all the prominent schools and gives us advantages over the schools that lack such organizations. The name of Athletic Association, too, suggests co-operation at all times in its endeavor to develop the mental and physical nature of the average student. Until recently many schools were not in the State Association. When a member of this organiza¬ tion the schools are protected from irresponsible institutions. For example, if some Athletic event were contracted for with another school, the one failing to fulfill the conditions of the contract would be liable for suspension in all athletics and a forfeiture necessary before becoming active again. In school activities the Athletic Association provides and maintains clean sport throughout, and it is found that an Athletic Association is one of the best societies to govern social and athletic activities in the school and in its surrounding com¬ munity. Page Fifty-Four Page Fifty-Five P ' go Fifty-Six THE COACH Clark Springer, a lawyer by trade, but even better than that to us, a football, basketball and baseball coach, has performed the duties incident to his position as coach most commendable. “Chick,” purely out of his love for the great game, for he received no compensation, volunteered his services as football coach in the fall, when the team had looked sluggish for more than a week. He started at his task and as a consequence the Maroon and Blue developed a team that snapped up like machinery. They started winning and never stopped until they held the un¬ disputed championship of Northern InTliana. Coach Springer alone was responsible for this. Rain or shine “Chick” was at the field and had the team working. Then came Basket Ball season This branch of athletics was introduced into Garrett High School this year, consequently all candidates were rookies. With the first night’s practice came very needed advice from no other than our ex-football coach. He stuck with us all season and put up a team that won six of thirteen games, and furthermore, was a big Dark Horse in the district tournament. When Base Ball season opened Mr. Springer again came to our assistance, and due to his efforts a successful year is very evident. All members and all followers of Garrett high school are deeply indebted to Mr. Springer who has taken this burden on himself, who so conscientiously put forth every effort to develop successful athletic teams and who has achieved results in everything which he has undertaken. The pupils of Garrett high school wish in this manner to thank Mr. Springer for all his assistance, and our hope is that it may be possible for him to be with us next year. In the fall of 1916 a large number of unexperienced scrubs reported for foot¬ ball. For some years this branch of athletics had not been in official favor in the high school and on this account football was an almost entirely unknown art to our athletics. During this year, the untiring efforts of our coach, Father Ray, pro¬ duced an excellent team. The first game resulted in a 6-6 tie with our rivals, Auburn. This game was a great source of confidence to all of us, and the season ended with three games won. one tied and three lost. ,The football year of 1917 was practically the same as the year previous. Eight first string men had graduated. Our handicap was the developing of green material. About the middle of the year we were progressing successfully when suddenly our coach was called away. This left us to the mercy of the opposing teams on more than one occasion. Three games won, one tied and four lost was the record of our season’s efforts. The next year was the “jinx” one for Garrett High football. A coach could not be secured and the outlook was very dark. However, the team succeeded in playing tie games with Defiance and Hicksville, our principal rivals. Few decisions were secured, but there was formed that organization which was to give such a good account of itself the next year. 1919 was the football reason which will ever be remembered by all the students of G. H. S. Reinforced by a coach, Capt. Clark Springer, and three former football players who had returned from overseas, we looked forward to a great year. Everyone worked with a will and in a few weeks we had a football machine of which Garett High can ever be proud We reached the goal, “The Northern Indi¬ ana Championship,” and we look forward to a team next year which will win not ' only “The Northern Indiana Championship,” but “The Indiana State Championship” as well. —PAUL OLINGER. Page Fifty-Seven CAPT. OLINGER. Olinger hit the line for many a long gain at halfback. He was one of the fastest men on the squad, a power on the defense, an excep¬ tional tackier. He made his fourth G this year. ALFORD. Alford enjoyed his first year of football. He was quite a sensa¬ tion all season. He’s a big boy, played tackle and things on the other side were usually spilled when Don got through. MORAN. Gob played a “Whang” of a game at tackle. He busted up more plays right where they started than any man on the team. Moran weighed 165 pounds and hit like a pile driver. SCISINGER. “Sci” watched right end. He is quite tall and very fast, and his ability to pick passes out of the air resulted in many touchdowns. He has finished his fourth year—- Very sorry. HATHAWAY. Don played a stellar game at guard. This was his second year on the varsity. It was not an easy task to move him and he broke through nicely. Page Fifty-Eight LEHMBECK. Ben played a snappy game at quar¬ ter. was full of pep and fight from whistle to whistle. He was a mighty dangerous offensive man. His accurate passes were account¬ able for a good many first downs. FARNER. When Dan came from the army it was like a Christmas present, for he filled up a big gap at guard and did it well. He played a heady de¬ fensive game and still has another year of it. VAN LEAR. Van was very consistent at center all season. He was at his best in the Defiance game. He finished his high school career, and carries a big rep. BEEBER. Beeber was the plunging full back of the team. The Maroon and Blue fans were positive of a good sized gain when Ed. ca rried the ball. He is Captain elect, with one big year to play. M ANION. Maggie held down left half throughout the season and did it with credit, was a strong defensive man and hit hard. He piled up the interference on many end around plays and made the holes on the plunges. Page Fifty-Nine STEWARD. Steward was a tower of strength at left end and very few success¬ ful end runs went around him. He also pulled down a good many passes. Paul will be at it again next year. BURTCH. Burtch was another successful second string man, who was in every game and sure put up a scrap. He could play either half or end, was always in there break¬ ing up interference and he has three years to play. BONNETT. Kenny received a lot of experi¬ ence this year, whenever he had the chance he held down right half with credit. He played the whole game at Defiance and did it well. He made his first G and will be a Senior next year. VEAZEY. .This was Squint’s second year. He was subbing at full and he could also play end with credit. Harold was a good plunger and hard to stop. ROAN. Pete was the little man of the team who took care of quarter every chance he had. Was a heady field general and has the ability to carry back punts. Page Sixty THE REVIEW OF THE SEASON The game at Warsaw on Thanksgiving day completed the most successful foot¬ ball year in the history of the Garrett high school. The locals won 13-6. During the entire season only one game was lost, while eight victories were won. The single defeat was received at the hands of the strong Defiance eleven. The game closed with a 12-0 score. In this contest Garrett clearly demonstrated that it was a match for its opponents, but the muddy gridiron and the pools of water re¬ sulted in some ccstly fumbles. On a dry field the count might have been different. The first game was played with Decatur at Garrett. The contest ended in a decisive victory, 50-0. On a return game at Decatur one week later the performance was repeated when the Maroon and Blue scored another success, 25-10. The Edgerton game proved to be an easy one, which resulted in a 61-6 victory. However, on the week following Garrett met Hicksville in one of the best games of the season when Hicksville was overcome by only two touchdowns. Sturgis and Warsaw were next met at home but neither team ever crossed the Maroon and Blue line. The one sided counts of 98-0 and 48-0 tell the story of the engagements. The final home game was staged with our old rival, Hicksville. The weather was very unauspicious but both organizations battled hard in a downpour of rain. When the pistol sounded the Maroon and Blue had scored 13, while Hicksville had been unable to endanger our goal. On the whole this year’s eleven was one of the best high school teams in this part of the country. It easily ranked first in Northern Indiana, and following the last scheduled game with Warsaw an effort was made to engage the best elevens in this state to the south and west of us. However, no team displayed a willingness to meet us and we were eventually heralded as the champions of Northern Indiana. A wealth of material exists for next year ' s organization and there is no reason to doubt that Garrett will not put up a strong fight for state honors.

Page Sixty-One Garrett High School Football Team is One of the Strongest In Northern Indiana CHAMPIONSHIP CLAIMED GARRETT HIGH MAKES CLAIM I TO FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP GARRETT-WARSAW FOOTBALL The Indianapolis News and the South Bend Tribune have heralded our football team us a contender for the state football championship. Our record in Indiana reveals a series of overwhelming victories. The In¬ dianapolis News declares that “The Garrett High School eleven has ex¬ hibited an unexpected development ; this year. In weight the team sur¬ passes nearly all other high school j learns and no Indiana contest has | been sufficiently difficult to test the i mettle of this organization.” Mishawaka and Kentland, the two ;• other state claimants, have not yet agreed to post-season games. Opening Foot Ball Game WON FROM EVERY INDIANA TEAM PLAYED: PROSPECTS FINE FOR FALL OF 1920. The 1019 football lid was lifted Saturday, Sept. 27, when Coach Groves led his warriors to Garrett to meet G. H. S. In the opening game of the season. Lack of practice and ex¬ perience on the part of the locals re¬ sulted in their overwhelming defeat, although thy, Purple aDd Gold fought gamely, and the final score of 44-0 was not a fair Indication of the rela¬ tive strength of the two teams. Coach Springer of Garrett has a powerful offensive team with two seasons of experience, bolstered by the return of several students from the army, The D. H. S. team has not been able to get very good practice due to the lack of second string men. Only four¬ teen players answered the call and Coach Groves is deserving of the | greatest praise for shaping his team, as he did in time for the opening Warsaw citizens, home coming alumni and former students of War¬ saw high school will see the high school team in action this afternoon against the strong Garrett team playing on u snow covered field. It has been years ago since the classic contest was played on a snowy gridiron. Old graduates will recall the former Winona-Warsaw Thanksgiving day games. While the rivalry between Garrett and War¬ saw does not compare with the old Wlnona-Wursaw games, peculiar In¬ terest in today’s contest centers in the fact that Garrett is claiming the state championship. The game will start at about 2:30 o’clock. Paul Bright and R. B. Wil¬ liams will officiate.—Warsaw Daily Times.

Starting the season with but one man, who had had previous experience in basketball, the team developed into a fighting combination, that, at the end of the season, held its own with the best teams in the district. True the team was lacking in basketball knowledge and speed, but what they lacked in the fine points of the game, they made up by that fighting spirit that had made them in¬ vincible in football. All things being considered, for a team playing their first year of basketball, the local team left little to be desired, and even when defeated they displayed a spirit of sportsman¬ ship, that was commendable and were never out fought. —CLARK SPRINGER. SUCCESS OF BASKET BALL With the successful results of one year of basketball as a basis of comparison, it is very evident that in a few years this great high school sport will carry just as much stress and as much admiration as the other two branches of athletics, namely, football and baseball that have been so firmly established in Garrett High. From the standpoint of games won, the season could not be considered as exceedingly successful. But more than that, this one great year of the sport has brought to the minds of the public the dire need of a gymnasium, and consequently when the second basketball team of G. H. S is ready to open its season it will be housed in a magnificent gym. Page Sixty-Six ED. BEEBER. The only experienced player on the team, played a good game at guard in addition to caging thirty bas¬ kets. Was our captain and proved a successful one. He has another year to play. MARLOW MANION. Maggie was one of the dependable forwards on the Maroon and Blue outfit. Lead the team in number of points and was a good floor man. Manion will be lost to the school by graduation. HARRY MORAN. Gob was our back guard, was a good, steady, and furthermore, clean pla yer. This is his last year and the school is losing a phenom- inal guard. Tage Sixty-Seven PAUL STEWARD. Captain elect, played a consistent game at forward, had a keen eye for the hoop, and was “there” in team play. The Maroon and Blue is sure of one good forward next year. RALPH SCISSINGER. Is a natural center, treated ’em pretty rough, was in the fray every minute and was a tower of strength on the defensive. Sci will be lost to the school by graduation. BEN LEHMBECK. Ben hit his pace about the middle of the season and proved a valu¬ able forward. This is also Ben’s last year in school. Page Sixty-Eight THE REVIEW OF THE SEASON The basketball year was inaugurated with five out of town games at Washington Center, Monroeville, St. Joe, Decatur and Columbia City. These were all defeats but our organization learned its rudiments of basketball in these contests so that the games at home were certain to be hard fought ard well played. The first two contests at home against Pleasant Lake ancj North Webster re¬ vealed the wisdom of the schedule. The former lost to the locals 23-16, while the latter was another victory for the Maroon and Blue, 31-25. Angola, Monroeville and Washington Center defeated us at Garrett, but every game was an excellent one and con sequently our reputation grew as the season progressed. In February Garrett annexed three victories, one from Avilla and two from Butler. In the struggle waged with Butler on the latter’s floor the locals played one of the best contests of the season when they forged ahead in a 28-26 struggle. The last of February the Maroon and Blue suffered defeat on two occasions at the hands of Auburn. In the first game at the Auburn Y. M. C. A. the half ended with a 9-9 count. At Garrett the locals were even better and at the end of the half the scorer had us in the lead, 10-3. Although both games were lost, 25-17 and 16-17, our High had no apology to offer with its first year’s team. In the district tourney, held at Auburn, Garrett won from Hamilton but was later disqualified because unintentionally there had been sent into the game a substi tute whose name was thought to be on the certified list but in error had been omitted. Next year with the strong second team developed during 1920, Garrett will be one of the strong contenders for honors in this sport. 19194920 BASKET BALL SQUAD STANDING—From left to right:—Paul Stuard, Marlow Manion, Donald Alford, Ralph Scisinger, Edgar Beeber, captain.

Page Sixty-Nine THE NEW GYMNASIUM Our high school has long been in need of a good gymnasium, and athletics and social affairs have been greatly handicapped for want of it. The need has been felt but the finances of the school corporation have been such that the building of a gym by the school board has been impossible. However, the great success of the foot ball teams of recent years and the splendid showing of the basket ball teams last winter, have resulted in the bringing to the school of the necessary financial support to make a new gymnasium possible. Impressed by what the school has accomplished with the very inadequate facilities at hand, a number of the business and professional men have concluded that Garrett high school is worthy of their support, and an organization has been made to back the building of a new gymnasium this year, and in coi-operation with the school board they are proceeding to carry out plans for the work at once. The final plans are now ' being prepared by the architect and the contract will be let in the near future. The building is to erected on the northwest corner of the school grounds. It is to be one hundred feet long and sixty feet wide, w ' ith a basket ball floor forty by seventy feet and seating capacity at games for a thousand people. It will be equipped with a stage and with dressing rooms and showers and will be suitable, not only for athletics, but for entertainments and social affairs. It should add more than any thing else possibly could to the future interest in and success of the school. H. W. MOUNTZ. A new tad i in vogue among so ' oral (It the O. H. S. boys-the wear- tug of " stilt hats. ' Page Seventy GIRLS’ BASKET BALL Certainly never before has it been so plainly proven that girls’ athletics as well as boys,’ can bring honor and credit to a school as during the past year through the efforts of the girls’ basketball team. With practically no previous experience in basketball, at the close of the season the G. H. S. girls were regarded as being one of the strongest, fastest teams in this vicinity, due only to their own personal efforts and to the keen interest which they displayed in athletics. Their strength was proven by the fact, that although out weighed by nearly every team they played, they held them and succeeded in winning all games except two. Their speed was certainly ex¬ hibited to the utmost in the Garrett-Auburn game which they won. Through the unlimited efforts of Supt. Mr. Carroll I am confi¬ dent that Girls’ Basketball is established in the G. H. S. With the prospects of a new gym and an athletic director it is certain that Garrett High will continue to produce a winning girls’ basketball team. THE WINNING TEAM Taking into consideration all of the difficulties under which the girls played, this season has been a grand success. The lack of practice and experience was a great handicap, but every available moment was utilized, with the result that we won six out of eight games. Our only defeats were given us by Waterloo and Auburn. While we had no return game with Waterloo, the girls demonstrated that they could “come back, " in the biggest, best and last game, which we played with Auburn. With the loss of but three players and the aid of a fine, big gym, the 19 21 team has a wonderful outlook. Page Seventy-One JESSIE PRESSLER. Billie was our captain, also our center, was a conscientious work¬ er, and sure believed in team play. This is Jessie’s last year in school. MADOLIN RIDER. Rider was there! Could we have gotten along without her? Was quick, strong and has a sharp eye. Matty is a Junior and will be at it next year. AULIENE SCHULTHESS. Ham, after having played one sea¬ son with the Camp Fire Girls, shaped into a successful guard, kept close to her forward and ruin¬ ed a lot of opponents’ team play. MADOLIN HOLLOPETER. Holly was our powerful guard, was successful in mussing up a bunch of plays and it was a difficult prop¬ osition to get a ball around her. Page Seventy-Two VIRGINIA PATTERSON. Illness kept Pat out of a good many games, but when she had an op¬ portunity she gave a good account of herself. WANITA CLARK. Was the find of the season, is a Junior and had had no experience, fell in line and at the end of the season held a regular berth. One more year. KATHRYN PATTERSON. Kathryn was a fast forward, kept her guards on the run and was a consistent scorer. Kate is a Soph¬ omore and has two big years in store for her. REBECCA KEEN. Becky was the side-center, played a little rough and was always full of pep, was strong on defensive and a good jumper. M Page Seventy-Three REVIEW OF THE SEASON The first contest was staged on January 9th at home, with Corunna. The game closed with a score of 10-2 in our favor. The Maroon and Blue girls won again at the next game when we met Avilla on January 16 at Garrett. The count this time was 39-2. On January 23d we lost to Waterloo before an enthusiastic crowd, by a 12-14 score. Two weeks later we staged a clean, scrappy game with Butler. The first half ended with Butler in the lead, hut with incomparable deter¬ mination the Garrett girls entered the second half and annexed a victory by two points. Our first out-of-town game gave us a chance to trounce Avilla 38-2. On Feb¬ ruary 20th we met Butler on their floor. This was an exceptionally fast contest, but our opponents were outclassed 28-8. The game with Auburn February 25th, played at Auburn was a very interesting one, but we were at a disadvantage on the three section field. The struggle was lost, 44-18. After the defeat at Auburn the G. H. S. girls decided to put forth one mighty effort in the last game of the season. On February 28th Garrett lined up against Auburn, filled with a firm determina¬ tion “to do or die.” This game was the fastest one of the year. It demonstrated, beyond a doubt, the G. H. S. girls’ ability on a basket ball floor. We led in the final count 17-11.

Page Seventy-Six TAG AND FREAK DAY Pink tags, Gypsies, Clowns, Irishmen, Italians, Dutchmen, Niggers, Nuts in general, a general upheaval in all afternoon classes, a snake dance, class stunts and a lot of music and money is probably the easiest way to describe the annual tag and freak day celebrated by the high school students on April 28. It was a rare afternoon for the student body. At one o ' clock everyone started pouring into the school building decked out in the rtiost elaborate regalia imagin¬ able. Maroon and Blue prevailed. All classes were met with more or less success, and at 3:00 p. m. the whole gang began that creepy movement which sent the snake dance down through Houston and Randolph streets. Then the celebration began; each class was represented with a stunt and the Freshmen received most of the applause because of their string instruments and a crowd of good singers. They endeavored to entertain the public, and the business men, and incidentally the group pinned on a number of tags. The purpose of this annual affair is to announce the Baseball season and also to gather funds for financing it.

Page Seventy-Seven Page Seventy-Eight Page Seventy-Nine APRIL FOOL Betty Bowers, a most attractive young girl with deep blue eyes and brown hair that curled most delightfully around her face, sprang up the steps of a neat looking house with lithe, athletic grace. As she was about to enter the home Betty glanced, as though by force of habit, towards the mail box on the right hand side of the entrance. She perceived a white bit of something, looking very much like a letter, which she eagerly seized. Glancing at the post mark she u nconsciously sighed and then said: “Well, I suppose its some more ‘good’ news saying he won’t be home for a short time yet. Those short times surely are getting numerous and are com¬ bining to make up quite a long time, I’m thinking. Thank goodness my work is keeping me busy and interested.” Hastily thrusting the letter into the pocket of her “chic” blue suit jacket, she entered the house and mounted the green velvet carpeted stairs and entered her own room. It was a bright, sun-shiny one, with sheer white curtains at the two windows, a neat little dressing table, a desk, chairs and a shiny brass bed, with a pink cretonne covering. It was an altogether cheerful and home-like place. Remov¬ ing her hat and jacket, which she flung carelessly on the bed, Betty sought her big, easy chair and curled up there in utter comfort to read her letter. Finishing it she tossed it onto the desk and sighed, “Just as I said, he’ll be home in a short time, -two weeks. Let’s see, this is the first of April, April Fool’s Day at that, so he’ll be coming about the 14th.” “Well,” she said arising reluctantly, “I must begin to tidy up a bit before Grace comes to tell me what a ‘perfectly georgeous banquet’ or what a ‘wonderfully delicious box of Lownies’ Jack sent her today. And she thinks Jim doesn’t care so much for me because he doesn’t keep showering me with such gifts, even while he was in France, or now that he’s in camp in the good old U. S. A. I guess nobody but myself really does understand him anyhow. It isn’t that he doesn’t care, it’s just that he doesn’t think, and-well he can’t afford it. But I do hate to stand by and see Grace delighting in such attentions, while I seem to receive none.” “Oh, well!” she continued, as she began to hum a lively little tune, “I’ll have something to tell her anyhow—a pretty big something, too. A rise in a newspaper office from an apparently insignificent position to a reliable journalist isn’t such a little bit of news anyhow.” Finishing her soloquy, she succeeded in restoring the last few obstinate locks of hair to their proper places and then picked up the morning’s paper to read over her last non-essential bit of news and to dream of the big items that would appear later in this same place. It was already growing dusk and unable to see longer by the twilight, she laid the paper aside and sat seemingly absorbed in thought. Presently a faint smile of amusement spread over her face and her eyes fairly danced. “I know,” she cried, springing up. “Why I have a perfectly marvelous idea and it will just make Grace open her eyes, too.” After turning on the little lamp on her writing desk she seized the telephone directory and traced the names until she came to “J. D. Croton, florist, Blue 2295.” Grasping the ’phone she hurriedly repeated the number and in a few moments was ordering two dozen American Beauty roses, and she added: “Please put a card on them saying, ‘With love, Jim,’ but make out the bill to Betty G. Bowers. Yes. send them up immediately, please. Thank you, goodbye.” “There,” she exclaimed triumphantly, “that’ll fix her. Its not so bad any how since its April Fool’s Day and its a pretty good joke,” she added with a laugh. “Now to wait for Grace and the flowers.” Betty’s thoughts unconsciously wandered to Jim. Why, it was almost two years since she had seen him! And now that he was here in the same country with her, yet he was too far away for her to go to him. Glancing at her tiny gold wrist watch and perceiving that it was almost half past seven, she walked to the window to await the delivery of the roses. Thirty-six dollars for two dozen roses! Why, that was simply absurd, thought Betty, and where would she get the money to pay that A A r n Page Eighty enormous bill. Presently the bell rang and Betty opened the door of her room to listen to the conversation. “A package for Miss Betty Bowers,” the boy was sayi ng, and the next moment the landlady, Mrs. Smith, was bringing the huge box up the stairs, announcing a package from ‘‘Mr. Jim,” as she had always called James Long. Now, to assume a perfectly innocent look while in the presence of Mrs. Smith, Betty received the package and placed it on the table while ahe followed Mrs. Smith down the long hall in quest of a vase large enough to contain the flowers. Presently she returned with a large china vase of oriental design, and as she opened the door of her room she saw her friend, Grace, stooping over the opened box of flowers and inhaling the ex¬ quisite fragrance. Seeing Betty enter, Grace ran to her exclaiming: ‘‘Why, Betty, you lucky girl! Two dozen American Beauties! That man must think oodles of you, and he’s just beginning to realize it.” Betty was radiantly happy just because she had succeeded in fooling Grace, and second, because she w as the owner of those beautiful flowers, even if she owed the bill for them. The girls arranged the flowers and then sat down for a chat. Affer Grace departed Betty began to question herself. ‘‘Was it wrong? Had this been an in¬ justice to deceive Grace?” “Well,” she argued, “its April Fool’s Day and I call that a pretty good joke anyway. Now to to spend the next few hours before bed time.” With Grace and Jack attending the show and everybody else somewhere, she felt quite alone and deserted, so she produced the latest Hearst’s and decided to read. Presently she heard Mrs. Smith calling: “Miss Betty, you have a caller, can you come down immediately?” Extracting herself from a most comfortable position and the most intensely interesting story, Betty reached the door and said, “Just a minute, Mrs. Smith.” She closed the door and sat down at her little dress ing table wonderingly. A caller! Who could be calling upon her now? Someone playing an April Fool joke. Well, she would be game! In a few moments she was tripping down the stairs glowing and happy. The sight that met her eyes as she entered the parlor door was almost unbelievable. " Why, Jim!” she gasped, and in an instant was in his arms. “Why, Jim,” you said two weeks!” “Well,” replied Jim, a tall, dark young man in khaki, “April Fool! Guess you’re pretty glad to see me anyhow?” Betty acknowledged that she was. Mrs. Smith, mouth wide open, had viewed the entire proceedings and was ap¬ parently as happy as Betty herself. The next moment she was hurrying upstairs to Betty’s room. Presently she stood in the parlor doorway again, nearly concealed behind the large bouquet of roses. “There Mr. Jim,” she said, “Just thought as how you might like to see these pretty posies so as you could appreciate them, too.” Betty was astounded, but she recovered from the shock rapidly and said: “Thank you, Mrs. Smith, you are very thoughtful.” She then placed the roses on the table. Jim, wearing a confounded expression, was unable to comprehend the real meaning of the act. “They are wonderful, Betty, may I ask who”— At this moment his eyes fell upon the little white card carefully tied to one of the stems. “Oh, so his name is Jim too, is it?” he exclaimed sarcastic ally. “Well, I sincerely admire his taste in gifts.” Betty was bewildered, but realized that she must tell the truth in order to right matters. “Now Jim,” she said, “don’t get excited, its my turn to April Fool vou. T bought the flowers and had your card put on them, just to fool Grace, so April Fool yourself! ” “Well.” exclaimed Jim in a somewhat relieved tone. “This has been some busy April Fool’s Day at that, now hasn’t it?” And Betty agreed that it had been the most exciting one she had ever experi¬ enced. —VIRGINIA PATTERSON.

In the G. H. S. during the year 1920 each class par¬ ticipated in numerous social activities. The Senior class, as well as the Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen, derived much pleasure from their parties, wiener roasts, pot-lucks and motor-trips. First of all in the fall of the year there occurred a Senior party at the gravel pit where about half of the members of the class thoroughly enjoyed themselves— eating. After the “eats” we decided to motor to Auburn to attend the Court Theatre. For some reason, which has not yet been learned, several of the party failed to reach “the big city.” On the following Friday evening the same class held a party out at “Uncle Billy’s farm.” The main features of the evening were—“spirits, look out for them;” boys in abundance. ' ’Nuf sed. Of course there was a feed, too. November 14th—A surprise party cn Mildred Sheets at her home. November 26th the Sophomore class entered into the ring of good times by tak¬ ing a wonderful ride—on a hay rack. The weather was most unpleasant, neverthe¬ less cold never troubled these people. Do you suppose those people (for example the president and also the secretary cf the class) had a good time? A very successful G. H. S. party was given at the K. of C. Hall on December 12. This party was for the b nefil of the A. A. It was an informal masquerade and everyone spent an extraordinary delightful evening. What? Lantz-Harvey Wedding. Sophomore party at school house on Decem¬ ber 19 th. The Juniors assembled at the G. H. S. on December 2 2nd for the purpose of having a good time. Here they were favored by several special numbers and lots of good things to eat. They adjourned as the clock struck eleven. ’Twas two nights before Xmas, and the old school building was lighted as if for some special event, and it was special, too, because it was then and there that the Senior belief in Santa was re-established. How strang—in one room (without a chimney in it) Santa had entered and left gifts for every good member of the class of ’2 0. The refreshments were found down in the domestic science room. James Mountz entertained the members of the Junior class at an informal party January 3rd. Was it his birthday? Wonder how old he was? The annual football banquet of Garrett High was held at the Christian Church on January 7. The following menu and toasts were given: MENU KICKOFF AND FIRST QUARTER Oyster Cocktail » Celery Pickles “Kickoff” .Capt. C. Springer “Forward Pass”.Ben Lehmbeck “Time Out” .Cupid Van Lear “Goal” .Don Alford SECOND QUARTER Stuffed Roast Chicken Mashed Potatoes and Gravy Corn Hpt, Rolls Butter “Next Year’s Prospects”.Paul Stuard “Football Spirit” .Danny Farner “New Era in Athletics” . . . .Edgar Beeber “Reminescenses” .Paul Olinger K A Page Eighty-Four HALFOVER AND THIRD QUARTER Waldorf Salad Olives “My ‘Varied’ Opportunities” . . .Gob Moran “Chewing Sponges”.Maggie Manion FOURTH QUARTER Boston Cream and Coffee Cake Mints “High School Athletic Spirit” ..Don Hathaway At this time football sweaters were awarded to the fifteen letter men.

Sophs delightfully entertained Freshies at school building on March 20. Wasn’t that sweet of them? April 28th—Juniors celebrated success of our A. A. tag day by assembling at Sherman’s that evening. A pot-luck lunch was served. A. A. MASQUERADE Page Eighty-Five HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA Ths high school orchestra is one of the oldest organizations existing in the G. H. S. This year the orchestra, consisting of fifteen members, was instructed by Mrs. Maude Updyke. A weekly practice was held in the high school building, and with the combined efforts of the individual members and our supervisor, the orchestra was soon prepared to participate in the social events cf the school. Besides play¬ ing at every general assembly of the high school, this organization appeared on the program at the performances of “In Poppyland’’ and “The Corner Store.” This year’s orchestra is undoubtedly the best that we have ever had. The success of the orchestra is in a large measure due to the interest and en¬ thusiasm of our instructor, Mrs. Updyke. The members have greatly appreciated her assistance.

Page Eighty-Six THE DEBATING CLUB The Debating Society of Garrett High School has greatly increased the interest in literary activities of the school. The Garrett club held its local discus¬ sion contest on “What Shall We Do With the Railroads” on March tenth. Three debators, Daniel Farner, Arlo Treesh and Frank Keen presented their views upon that subject. The judges selected Arlo Treesh to represent Garrett High in the county meet. The week following at the. Auburn high school building the county contest was held. Garrett won second place in this discussion. All the topics selected for debates this year were of current interest, and because of the zeal and enthusiasm the members have shown toward their work, this or¬ ganization deserves the attention of the general public of Garrett as well as that of the student body of the high school.

This year’s Glee Club has had a larger enrollment of students than any of the clubs organized in previous years. Under the supervision of Mrs. Reppert the girls met early in the school year and elected the following officers: President—Virginia Patterson. Vice President—Creede Novinger. Secretary and Treasurer—Velma Fulk. It is anticipated that with the increasing interest in music in the high school this organization will become more indispensable each year.

The club has participated in many school entertainments. This organization is under the supervision of Mrs. Repperd and has selected the following officers: Coe Van Lear—President. Albert Schumaker—Vice President. Ronald Stoner —Secretary and Treasurer. Miss Bertha I. Adams came to the Garrett high school from the Mon¬ roeville high school following the resignation of Miss Sembower.

There is little time until classes will begin. But sure¬ ly she has time for one thing more. Hastily she draws from the pocket of her middy blouse, something wonderfully soft and pink and—SHE POWDERS HER NOSE. The course of a busy school day has be¬ gun. The classes one by one have assem¬ bled. In one of the class rooms a very rigid examination is being conducted. She is there and Oh, how hard she is exerting her men¬ tal capacities. The test is so difficult. She is in need of moral support, where can she get it? With a final look of despair and anguish she brings forth that article of such daintiness and—SHE POWDERS HER NOSE. In the assembly room of that school a verv impressive and inspiring speech is being made. Yes, it is inspiring and it thrills the heart of her who listens, and she wishes that she too, might do great and noble deeds. The talk goes on as he tells how great women have accomplished this, how good women have been responsible for that. She is moved to the very heights with dreams and visions and, with the hopes and aspirations of a long remembered future shining forth from her eyes, she glances furtivelv about that great room and—SHE POWDERS HER NOSE. The busy day is ended. The many chil¬ dren of a large school are eagerly putting on wraps, that they may be off to play. The more dignified students of the high school are calmly, with ease and with much propriety, getting ready to depart to their respective homes. She too, is preparing to leave. She has enjoyed a happy day in that school, and she is loathe to absent herself from its noble halls of learning. Yet, she must go. With a last backward look and a yearning sigh, she draws forth that pink object of such MARVELOUS texture and— SHE POWDERS HER NOSE. —PHYLLIS GREENE. Page Ninety-Six Page Ninety-Seven GARBER’S THANKSGIVING DREAM THE SCENE:—A peculiar shaped stage in a mammoth theatre shaped very much like a stomach. On the stage was a very impressive character clad in armour, his name Gastrica Juice. Down a stairway came a knight clad in armour named Baka De Clam. An encounter was the result end finally Gastrica Juice conquered. He bound Baka De Clam and cast him aside. Then came another clad in ar¬ mour named Welsha de Rarbit. An¬ other encounter was the result—longer than the first, but finally Welsha de Rarbit was conquered, bound and thrown aside. Next came a very im¬ posing Knight named Minca de Pie, and at last Gastrica Juice was conquered, bound hand and foot. Then Minca de Pie turned to the defeated friends, re¬ leased them, they locked arms and walked up stairs together. Miss Brown (In Spanish class): What is the meaning of hyos? Madolin H.: I don’t know. Miss B.: You ought to, it’s some¬ thing you like. Madolin: Boys, to be sure; I should have known.

H= To the Editor of the annual: Please tell me why the Juniors are bringing the Tribune with them to school. Are they going to try and put it out of business? OUR ROMEOS AND JULIETS There is a tale of long ago, That makes our glad hearts sad; It is the tale of Romeo And his true love for Juliet. But we have tales like those today, Though not as bad you see; For if they were as sad as they, Our hearts would break through sym¬ pathy. The first is that of Pat and Paul, No truer love does stand; He goes to see her every night, But never asks her hand. The next on record that we scan, Is that of Ham and Joe; Though he is very far away, Ham is “awful” true we know. And then on this book of fate, Essa and Ivan are next better, For lo, a plumber’s son is he And she a foreman’s daughter. Two representatives of the Sophomore band, They both know Spanish hardly, For when Hazel and Dale write sweet love notes They use their Spanish badly. The next ones are of stature small, To all the ptrties goin; For following in her sister’s way Is Kathryn and Pete Roan. Francis and Fouch, two more of Garrett High Whom fascination doth bind. Instead of studying History, They have each other on their mind. Within the finis of this book does bind Two more with hearts of gold. For Randal and Carol true Have hearts that are surely sold. But before we end this tale must tell Of two that Cupid has hit harder; They both are teachers in Garrett High, These two, Dobbrick and D. Garber. We close this tale of love and woe And trust that Garber will get her. For when he courts Miss Dobbrick true Even Romeo could not do better. Might as well be dead as out of style; Mr. F’ranks carries a powder puff. Page Ninety-Eight N » A FEW OF THE SENIORS PET EX¬ PRESSIONS We can crock them—Harry Moran. Don’t get ridiculous—A1 Freeze.

I heard you were up to the Eagles hall last night. I was there but failed to see you. Tom was there too I guess. I am jealous about two things: you said I was good looking and because you said hello to Tom. If there is such swell boys in the tenth grade you ought to get one or two. I guess I will go to the show Mon¬ day night. Tom is at Fort Wayne now but will come home Sunday. You seem to worry yourself about. looking at other boys. I don’t care how many boys you look at, but it makes me jeal¬ ous. Well, I must close, so goodbye with love. MORRIS BURR. Miss Baker: Oh Charles, did that burn you?

FIRST AND TEN His head was jammed into the sand, His arms wer° broke in twain. Two ribs were snapped, three teeth were gone, Would he ever walk again? His i’ps rnoved slowlv; I stopped to hear The whisper he let fall. His voice was weak, but this I heard: Old men who’s got the ball? “A PERFECT MAN” I’ve conjured up a picture of what a man must be; If he has any wish at all To stand a chance with me. He must have eyes and hair like Garb¬ er’s, With Fat Trapp’s happy smile. With Van Lear’s popularity and For¬ rest Jone’s style. With Madge’s personality and Keen’s ability at the wheel, With Benny Lehmbeck’s determined ways and Paul Stewart’s appeal, And then Charles Baker’s recklessness when the villian’s parts he plays, And dimples—one in his chin like Pret- zle’s anyway. A man so perfect as all this I’d really like to meet, But without a doubt he’d hobble about on CHARLIE CHAPLIN FEET. If Coe is large is Maurine Little? Or would that be a riddle? Does Albert Trapp when winter comes? Or would Alice Freeze when this is done? If Lydia was sent from home Would Maurine Houser? Or if nothing was said would Gladys Utter? How long a fish is Lillian Bass? Or what kind of a bug is Olga Miller? When Marlow is blue is Phyllis Green? When Forest is dull is Frank Keen? When Paul goes home does Virginia say Paul O-ling-er? If Valena was dough would Charles Baker? If Mamie’s a girl is (Fern a Mann? Or if a foot is a foot is Lydia a Yarde? Mildred asked what she was doing And Vonnell said that Essa Teeters. Harry Mo-ran away from home. Did Virginia Patterson treat him right? If Ilo is stern is Wilma Frang? If Thelma was sick would Ralph Scis- inger to sleep? Miss Brown: Tomorrow we will have a Latin test. DePew: Will we write it or talk it? Don Alford: And it was so dark I couldn’t see, and all I could hear was foot prints. ❖ sfc Miss Brown: What is that smell? Velma Fulk: Smells like tar. Beeber: Mayde the girls are cook¬ ing.

As we interpret it, it is not necessarily the mode of preponderant favor, but rather the most exacting adaptions of ideas conceived by the master designers of the time, and given expression in really worth while and differ¬ ent, distinctive and exclusive apparel. 5 Style in this store is not necessary to be loooked for. It is everywhere. In all departments, there is merchandise which has been de ¬ veloped from the ideas of the masters of creation and think¬ ing in the units of the items in question. And these de¬ partments carry only the most highly developed, the most satisfyingly near the ideal, of these items. Whether it he a man’s suit, a woman’s cloak, a pair of hose or a rug, there is in the style embodied therein, strict proof of our inter¬ pretation of the word. 5 Watch for it in everything you see here.

KeyserSt GARRETT WHEN YOUR LAD COMES HOME FROM HIGH Don’t you love to be out in the kit¬ chen when your lad comes home from “High?” Just to hear him shout, as he dashes in: “Oh, boy! I smell cake and pie!” Don’t you love to watch how the color on his bright face comes and goes as he draws in the kitchen incense through his freckled, quivering nose? Don’t you love to think that the odors you’ve evolved in your kitchen today will be fresh and strong in his memory after he’s old and gray? When his food has lost its savor, and courage and pulse run low, don’t you love to think that his heart will turn to the kitchen he used to know? Don’t you love to think that out of the past you can come and bring him joy—that in fancy he’ll eat again the things you cooked when he was a boy? IF YOU’VE BEEN A REAL MOTHER and made home bright for him, he will hold you fast in his mem¬ ory, when all things else grow dim.
