To live fully in the present is the enjoyment of those in the prime of life. But to expand, to aspire, to reach out with eager hands and shining eyes toward a dis- tant goal is the privilege of youth alone. Our senior class is youth it- self. It is inclined toward cynicism in the mode of the day, but it dreams — dreams of a life of cloudless days and sunny skies, love and friendship, and joy and comfort. And this book is a symbol of its modern dreams of a beautiful future. dedication Can an annual be dedicated to a future? A future is not tangible; it is no dearly loved object; it can hardly be said to have contributed much of worth to this high school year book. Yet, in a vague and in- definable way, it has offered much. A vision of the future of the class of ' 29 has clarified the clogged brains of its authors. That same vision spurred on its financial managers in a difficult moment. In truth, that glowing vision instigated, propelled, and finally published this inadequate expression of our class ' s noblest thoughts. Therefore, is it not fit- ting to dedicate the results of a real dream to the future that has con- ceded so much to the present and which holds out such rosy promises for our later life?

ADMINISTRATION Each year it is the pleasure of the departing senior class to express its gratitude to the executives of the institution. Only hen it is time to leave does a class realize and appre- ciate the amount of patience, the weary toil, the understanding sym- pathy, that the faculty has exerted for the betterment of the students. Our parents were the first to guide our moral and spiritual be- ings in the right or w rong direction. But it was our teachers who gave us the living jewels of knowledge to direct our older footsteps. And we can repay them only by using their instructions to our best advantage, and by freely applauding their high- est efforts for our advancement. l oard of Education The Board of Education is a legislative body appointed for the administration of school affairs. Service is the watchword of the Board. Were it not for the thought of serving the community there would be little incentive to be a member, for the members receive practically nothing for their efforts except that one satisfaction — that they are serving. It is an alert organization, always working for the interest of the students, never missing an opportunity to give them another advantage. Probably the most important organization in the civic life of the community is the Board of Education, for a great responsibility rests upon its shoulders, that of supplying the most adequate means pos- sible for giving us, the future citizens of this city, an education to make us better citizens and to make our lives richer and happier. When we stop to sum up the many advantages which are at our disposal in the local school svstem we can then appreciate the activities of the School Board. H. M. BROWN DR. J. W. THOMSON J. P.

As the senior class of ' 29 is the first to go through ir years of high school under the supervision of Mr. Pain , the members, justly pay tribute to him as a leader, ;anizer, and a thinker. all W. S. PAINTER A Principal There is one in every educational institution who is looked up to for counsel and advice by the student body. That es- sential figure in our high school is none other than Principal Willennar. This does not mean that his sole purpose is to administer these two necessary elements. It is rather an avocation, not one of his required duties, but it is proof of his great popularity among the studejits. It has been his policy to lend an aiding hand wherever :t is needed, and his sunny, consistent disposition has made him one of the best-liked figures In our faculty. Besides attending to his many responsibilities as principal he also is the able instructor of the civics and business law classes during th ' .- first semester, and the economics and salesmanship classes of the last half of the year. The way he impresses us witti the facts in these texts is certain proof that he is interested in our success financially and publicly. Z. A. WILLENNAR ..- .A .r?S_ Faculty MRS.

The faculty with the cooperation of the student body de- termines the success of a school as the instrument of educa- tion of the state. Garrett High School seems especially blessed with a keenly appreciative group of teachers, the members of which have offered their best for the better development of the students during all their years here. Each teacher has become, or rather, made himself, an em- bodiment of a specific virtue in the eyes of his pupils. Each is a representation of what an individual can make of himself by diligent and intelligent application of the principles of right living and right thinking. Because we have spent the most of the last four years in the presence of our faculty, it is a fond hope that we may have absorbed some of the excellence of those qualities, and that our characters have been enriched thereby. We know full well that environment has a profound effect upon in- dividuality, and we can only wish that the environment of the faculty of G. H. S. may have left its mark on us as individualists. im A 17 i s-r A r ' € ' A;pA7z : AA ( J-p7 c Z A lX ' r ' ; ::I3 o Z ' ?

Just as a rug ' would be w eak ' with a series of threads missing, a high school ' would be in- complete ' with a class lacking. Each of the four branches performs a duty and ' works to s ard a definite objective. Each is an important part of the ' whole. The four groups can be classified. The beginning is made in freshman and sophomore years, the turning point is made in the junior year, and the conclusion is reached in the senior year. And from the con- clusion w e enter directly into civic life. Senior Oass Officers The success of the seniors of ' 29 is due largely to the capability of the officers and the industrious attitude of the class as a whole. Much has been accomplished during their four years in high school. Many of the group have won recognition in music, oratory, dis- cussion, athletics, and scholarship. The leaders have been loyal and spirited, and have brought the class to a spectacular close. Sophomore C ass Though the sophomores did not organize this year it cannot be said that the class has been inactive. Several of the group have been named among the honor students; the class has been represented on the athletic field, and the music department has heard from some of them. Without being known as a group, these students have made interesting individual contributions to school progress. ,. - BERNARD BRENNAN Hi-Y 2, 3, President 4 Demosthian Vice-president 3 Maroon Blue 3 Football 2, 3, 4 Baseball 1, 2, 3 Track 2, 3, 4 Basketball 2 Glee Club 3 Tennis 3, 4 Class President 3, 4 Bernard is slow but sure.

The class responded admirably to their suggestions and direction and their cooperation has been advantageous in every way. The two most notable enterprises, the edition of the Maroon and Blue and the planning of the annual junior-senior banquet, were successful due largely to the conquering spirit and the good will in the hearts of the class and its chosen leaders. Fresh I Class The freshmen arc alwavs considered an essential part of the school system. This class in particular has never rejected aid to us nor shirked in its expressed duties to its Alma Mater. Although it is a custom of the freshmen never to organize, as a class they are recognized as a group willing to contribute to the school ' s activities. Because of the outstanding work of the freshmen, great hope is held out for them for next year.

What could be a finer compliment to give to a Senior Class than to say that the above verse had been its motto throughout the high school career? This little verse sums up our whole four years in G. H. S. We came, we saw, and we conquered; and we hope, nay rather, know, that we are leaving, " Footprints on the sands of time, " in the form of loving thoughts in the minds of the underclassmen. The four years have gone quickly, and it seems only last week that we entered high school and that our round of work and play began, but suddenly we awake to the fact that four de- lightful years have whizzed by and we will leave this Spring to return no more. But, are we downhearted? No! We know that we have had our share of toil and fun, and we feel that we are now prepared to go o«t into the world, either to continue our education, or to join in the daily work of the world. We know that G. H. S. has furnished the background for the events which will come throughout the remainder of our lives, and although we do not like to leave, we feel that with this background we shall make a success of our life work. — Ruth Thomas ii A 31 m Senior C ass Trophecy Time — May of the year 1929 Place — Assembly of G.

A _ - 34 Class ' Poem— ' 29 On a snuiiy road called life, Along a sparkling stream, I walked in care-free happiness Dreaming a childish dream. I thought of the years to come. Of their sunshine and shadoivs for me. And wondered what ivould he my life In the place of the living sea. I longed for the time when I should be A member in a school like this. The ivork and fun of a scholar ' s life, Was to me the height of bliss. And way back there, ivhen I was young It seemed such a long, long wait. Endless years that ivould never end, vi Until I could graduate. ' But those dear days are nearly gone. Musing I linger still here, I pause, I hesitate, I dread to go, I linger to shed a tear. But ive must always look to the future. Checkered with sunshine and sorrow, Keeping only the memories of the best. Regretting today and inviting tomorroiv. For along Life ' s road we go and come, Thinking of joys that are passed And happy tve are to dream about Our dear old Senior Class. — Isabelle McDaniel, ' 29 35 s o C ; b sj° .y b s o iioi -- B B bt! -° Ji -a ,, « 2 E « I « O (i m O OH c tL. pa cio U = -Q E £: • li= -5 J: too - ■a.

During these three years of toiling and rejoicing, we, as a class, took active part in all the social and athletic activities. In some things which we have done, we find complete satisfaction, while we are fully aware of other things that we should have done differently or should have omitted altogether. Heralded as the largest class in the history of our school, we have tried in the past and have hopes in the future to prove this by our accomplishments. — John Micu ' }0 A .. . - 44 SOPHCAiOCEX 7 r It has been said that the be- ginning of a task counts for naught if the work is not continued and finally com- pleted.

It woul d take a sage to write even an outline in so brief a space. As individuals we are known; as an organization we are new; as a factor of our own beloved institution we demand your recognition. Our existence dates from Sept. 6, 1927, when we met to be enrolled in Garrett High School. Part of our enroll- ment was sttrengthened by volunteers from other schools. We were seriously aware of the dignity and responsibilities of such an undertaking and as a result we constituted a loyal class which is ' 31. During this year we held our own in the school activities, in- cluding athletics. Although we were not an organization, we became an important factor in Garrett High School. As Sophomores we have decreased in number. Many have been called upon to cast their lot in different spheres of life; a few have been added to the class, until at present eighty remain. The love of music and literature is very marked. Besides intel- lectual culture our class believes in physical culture as well. Some of our members can kick the football highest, direct the basketball best, and run the fleetest. Our characteristic is to acquire and maintain success. It is of the highest importance for each individual to realize that same standard in himself. The field of conquest is too broad, and honor is too sacred to do any tarrying on the way, so with this in mind, the class of ' 31 awaits their Junior year with much eagerness. — Hope Swalley 48 PCESHMEN Wise is that one who stores his treasure in the safest of all banks, his mind. The first deposit may seem small and insignificant, but that tiny bit increases w ith experience to a w orthy sum.

H. S. This day we will all remember, But we u ' ill hare to confess. That our knees shook and shivered When we passed up the plank. Our pass-ports ice then delivered Listen, there came a " Clank " , Why! that must be the chains That hold the door to fame. Some of us will enter there If we study and play the game. Some pupils sailed for Latin, So they could say, " Appropinquant " And others sailed for Algebra, They can find numbers they want. Still others harbored at Economics They wanted to know hoiv to cook; Biology was another stop, Where many paused to hare a look. Of all these subjects that I ' ve named Some still ivere dissatisfied. But, at last, they thought their port was gained When our carpenter shop they eyed; There was one more harbor left, Where everyone dropped anchor, It was at Miss Evard ' s door. For our good English, we thank her. There were sports and activities, too. In these we took a part A Girl Reserve Club, Maroon and Blue And even Music and Art. In each of these lue had our fun. In each of these ive worked And noiv our promotion ' s almost ivon, We ' re glad we haven ' t shirked. In the years of our life that are yet to come I ' ll bet both you and me. Will always remember and cherish Our class of ' 32. —Mary Ella Wyatt ' 32 Freshman ( " «55 History How proud and happy the members of our class felt as they marched through the long halls and into the large assembly room the morning of September the tenth. There were eighty-seven who had accomplished the thing for which they had been striving for eight long years, and now were entering upon their high school career. Everything seemed strange to them at first but as the days and weeks went by they soon became accustomed to the change. Many of our class have shown themselves to be ideal students not only in grades, but in many other activities. Some freshman boys have made themselves known in football, while other boys and girls were a credit to their basketball teams. Still others have acquired fame in music, both in piano and vocal contests, and five of our class have been able to have their names attached to the high school honor roll. 1 am siue we will all be more than satisfied with our freshman year at high school. — Eleanor Meyer ' 32 A 52 - ' li kA b JL ACTIVITIEX ft " is " ' true ' that " work without play makes Jack a dull boy " , and Mary a queer girl. To prevent the very unlikely condition of a G. H. S. with 300 honor roll students with but a single interst, organizations have been formed in the various departments to induce participa- tion in all branches of work. These activities and clubs pro- mote harmony and fellowship, and w ill aid the students to meet the future ' with self-confidence and . .bility to contribute their bit to the betterment of life. Every student has his talent, which w ill be eagerly welcomed in the corresponding clubs. 3 QirW ' Double Quartette A group of girls from the glee club was selected this year by Miss Zeigler and given special attention and practice. They met regularly on Tuesday evening and devoted their time to music for special occasions. The girls sang at the Church of Christ this spring for the district teachers ' meeting, sang for the students in the assembly, and com- peted in the local music contests. The girls are very grateful to their instructor for the time and patience she spent with them. Troys ' Qlee Club The boys ' glee club this year has been the largest and most successful of any that the school has ever had. Due to the great amount of interest shown by the boys much work and progress of merit is shown in the records of this club. From this group was selected the boys ' contest chorus and the boys ' double quartette which represented the school in competition with other schools of the county in the annual contest. This is the first year that the boys have won over the girls in our local contests and with this encouragement the boys feel confident of even greater success and greater accomplish- ments next year.

It has practiced diUgently and is very well balanced for a high school organization. It is under the direction of Miss Zeigler and is composed of thirteen instruments: five violins, one cello, two horns, two saxophones, one trombone, and drums and piano. It gave a recital about the middle of the term for the benefit of the students in the assembly, and helped to stimulate interest at the Hi-Y Follies, senior class play, and commencement. Several of the members have been honored with participation in the County Orchestra, and one was a member of the National High School Orchestra at Chicago.

The Syncopators made their debut in the assembly one morning and became s o popular that they decided to make their playing an earn- ing proposition. Their practice became regular and now they play for public dances. They have been quite generous and congenial, indeed, and have played for the senior parties. Honestly, those Syncopators can just " burn you down " with their rhythm. Good luck to you, our " Paul Whiteman and his boys " . Harold Coil, Charles Hopkins, Wilson Hu lohn Young, Bernard Tuck i A 57 Hi-Y The Hi-Y club has been quite active this year and a large membership and a good financial standing have been obtained. Mr. Bormuth, the adviser, has worked diligently with the boys and the assurance of success was due largely to his efforts. The annual Hi-Y Follies presented in February was as usual the high light of the year. The local chapter was represented at the Annual Older Boys ' Conference at Muncie by twelve delegates. The Father and Son banquet was attended by a majority of the members and their fathers. The men left the affair with the feeling that they were thankful that the high school possessed such an organization for the character building and moral education of their boys. At the dinner the newly-elected officers were installed. The new leaders pledged their support for next year.

Qirl %eseri ' e 0iib The membership of the Girl Reserve club this year was not as large as it was last year, which was partially due to the fact that there was a separate organization for the freshmen. It was desired to organize them separately so that they would have an opportunity to develop and learn all the club means. However, much was accomplished this year and it is felt that, though small in numbers, the club has been mighty. The meetings were attended by a majority of the members, who enjoyed playlets, discussions, songs, and " high jinks " . There were as many acts of service done by the club as usual. The girls also enjoyed several novel parties during the year. The second annual district conference was held April 27 at Kendallville. The members of the club tried to live up to their code and their plan of three-fold development under the leadership of their adviser. Miss Mildred Evard. The members of the advisory committee are: Mrs. H. F. Wyatt, Mrs. C. B. Hamilton, Miss Lola Leifer, Miss Marguerite McKinley, and Miss Marie Thrush.

Soon after the beginning of the school term the committees were arranged by Miss Marie Thrush and the editor-in-chief, Thais Hamilton, and work was immediately started in several of the departments, such as snapshots and photography. Work on the annual was continually progressing from that time until it was entirely ready for printing. One of the biggest changes in the book was made when a different cover was se- lected. Several other changes were also effected, which makes this book, we think, the finest that was ever published by a local graduating class. The whole class, and especially the leaders in the work, are to be commended for the tireless efforts and cooperation which they put forth in editing this, the final project of the seniors.

The new staff has been found dutiful and conscientious in the task, working not only for a better paper, but for a prize paper. Several changes have been effected. New headings were first of all chosen. The Junior High School department, which for several years has occupied a place on page three, was moved to page four, and page three is devoted entirely to athletics. Page one contains no sport write-ups, but only news of other activities. The new staff con- tinued the custom of meeting at 3:20 o ' clock on Monday afternoons, as a meeting dur- ing school hours is found to be better attended than one later. A more intense interest is manifested because the work seems to be a part of the school schedule. This staff will continue its work for a few issues next year, and the seniors of ' 29 hope that the old Maroon and Blue will continue to be an honor to the school.

(jirls ' Qlee C ub Early every year a bulletin is posted and every girl in high school is given the opportunity to " try out " for vocal work. This year the glee club is the largest that it has ever been, and we have had a great variety of types of music. The girls elected for officers were: president, Katherine DeVeny; secretary-treasurer, Julia Murray; librarian, Marjorie Brinkman. A so- cial committee with the president as chairman was appointed, composed of Juanita Frazier, Ruth Zimmerman, and Vernice West. Miss Gladys Zeigler is sponsor of the group. The club voted that an assessment be made, and from the fund the girls bought their music. This is the first year that this has been done, and it has proved very satisfactory. The school calendar was too full to allow for an operetta as has been given each spring for the last three years, and it was a disappointment to the public as well as to the glee club girls. Even though this year ' s work was a big success, we are looking for- ward to even bigger and better things next year. Top row — Marjory Brinkman, Betty Barbillion.

A i Hl HaBi ATHLETICS It is a fact that comparatively few students participate in the field of sports, and that because of the high requirements athletics tend to extreme specialization. Yet in spite of this physical education is of in- terest to every pupil and contrib- utes in a large measure to the spirit and high morals of the school. Reg- ulation of habits and daily contact -with the other members of a team tend to educate students to clean living, fair play, loyalty, courtesy, and good fellowship. Not only do the participants benefit, but the on- lookers absorb from watching the contests some of the same qualities. Coaches and ( " rt ) rf ;?5 Athletics, in general, this year has been handled very efficiently under the director- ship of Mrs. Harriet Boggs, girls ' coach, and C. E. Bryan, boys ' coach, assisted by P. A. Wilkinson. Much credit is due to our coaches for the winning teams which they have produced. The teams have all proved that they had the spirit to put up a real contest. The students of G. H. S. appreciate the untiring efforts of the coaches during the strenuous winter season. They have won a place in the hearts of the student body by their willingness to cooperate and by their cheerfulness in giving. In victory and in defeat their motto has been " the best man wins. " The captains of the various teams this year have striven to enforce the rules of good sportsmanship. It is true that the leader cannot play the whole game. The essential part is coach and plavers. And that part has not been lacking this year in football, basketball, or track. These leaders have put forth every effort, setting as their goal — " When the one great scorer comes To write against your name, He writes not that yon icon or lost, But how you played the game.

A A 67 i " Boys ' Basketball Team A quintet thnt plays basketball as the Garrett High School " Railroaders " did during the 1928-29 season is a team of which a school may be proud. After an unsuccessful season last year, practically the same group of boys faced even a harder schedule this season. Of the twenty scheduled games they hung up a record of nine victories; they also swept through all opposition in the county tourney to bring the championship to Garrett, and advanced to the final game of the sectional tournament to be nosed out by Columbia City in the second overtime period after staging a gallant fight. The " Railroaders " not only established a reputation as a powerful five, but they won the respect of all their opponents for the good sportsmanship and the keen contest spirit which they displayed. And it is that respect that is more valuable to a team than the most successful season in the way of winning scores.

Those players really gave as much, or more, to the school than the first team, for they were constantly faithful in practice and in giving their support to the others, while they received very little of the glory. Of the regular players only two, Capt. Gordon and E. Hofferman, will be lost by graduation, and from the reserve material Coach Bryan should have no difficulty next year in turning out another successful five for the Maroon and Blue.

A 73 Qirls ' " Basketball Team We find that another very successful season is over and that the remaining girls are eagerly looking forward to the coming year. Due to the players ' diligent practice and determination to win they have lost only three games this year, and those by very small margins. The girls are to be complimented on making such a record after having lost six first squad girls in 1928. The girls on the team have worked faithfully and have shown every ounce of true sportsmanship. The games in which they have been victors could not have been won if it had not been for the cooperation of every member of the team and the coach. The prospects for next year are very encouraging when we consider that only a few of the first team members will graduate, and that the bulk of the material will be on the job for another season.

During the early part of the basketball season all the girls who were interested were allowed to practice, and several teams were formed among the classes. These teams played no outside games, but competed among themselves. Later, however, a group consisting of eighth grade girls was chosen to contest outsiders. The schedule was extremely brief, consisting of only six games, five of which were victories for the locals. Winning scores were made against Auburn, Huntertown, and Altona. Four games were played with Altona, two in the high school gymnasium and two in Altona. The first of the series was lost to the opponents because the girls were not accustomed to the tiny Altona floor. a Francis, Helen Ratrie, Miss Faye Sutlierlin, Mary Louise Abrahms, Catherine Seated— Eugena Keller, Dorothy Bowmar, Gail Sargent, Helen Micu.

One of the outstanding accom- plishments of the team was its defeat of the Aces, the champions of the High School Intramural League. The team won the following victories: Altona 24 to 11; High School Freshies 24 to 13; Avilla 34 to 9; Butler 66 to 6; Spencerville 27 to 11; Avilla 26 to 14; Huntertown 26 to 5; Aces 21 to 20; Butler 42 to 10; Ashley High Seconds 22 to 11; High School Pirates 28 to 11; Spen- cerville 21 to 17; Butler 37 to 12; St. Joe 3 5 to 22; High School Eagles 23 to 6; Altona 34 to 28.

On this day, so long ago One hundred years I know Plus twenty more; There was born that winter day, In a little cabin gray With one door. Oh, his name was Abraham Lincoln! And the hours he spent in thinkin ' , Are unknown. He was not a man so neat For we know his hands and feet Were overgrown. Simple, humble as could be And very alert we see Was his mind; He was noble, brave, and true, And the things he said to you Were so kind. Now his silent bodv rests ' Neath the ground which he did bless With his life; And the people all are free. Glorious land of Liberty, Since his strife. But his soul shall ever live For the many things he did For our land — And in the book of fame We can see Abe Lincoln ' s name, A Real Man. —Either Kennedy ' 29 i A 79 tJ)ilemory It was cold last evening, and the snow fell in silence o ' er the outside world. I was alone, except for the purring cat hunched on the hearth stone. Ah old familiar melody of my youth came softly over the radio and brought me into a reminiscent mood. I pulled the old leather wing-backed chair nearer to the fire, and stared into the glowing embers, while the radio sang: " School days, school days. Dear old golden rule days, Readin ' , an ' ' ritin ' , and ' rithmetic Taught to the tune of a hickory stick. " Well did I recall the nights I had sat on my mother ' s knee, trying to master my lessons, and she, with the patience that only a mother can have, helped me through the hard places. It was on nights such as these that we sat around the fire and listened to Dad tell of his school days, featuring brick school-houses, drifted roads and copper-toed boots. Those were " " the old days " to me then — but the kiddies now climb on my knee with: " " Tell us of when you were in school, and what you did when you were a boy. " I must be getting old, but it seems just yesterday that I was back in Garrett High. " ' Two by two, they go marching through. Sweethearts on parade. " Happy high school with all its joys — and disappointments — if we could only have realized then what happiness was ours; but that is the way of life — we never know the value of things until the) ' are gone. " Jeannine, I dream of lilac time, When I return, I ' ll make you mine. " Oh! The happiness and hopefulness that pictures Youth. It is Youth! The fire flickered in a sudden draft, and shattered my dreams. Years sped by in that moment, and I was once again an old man in body, but my heart is still as young as the Past. I have gained material wealth, but I would not barter my happiness for the all of it. " Just a song at twilight, when the lights are low. And the flickering shadows softly come and go — Though the heart be weary, sad the day and long. Still to us at twilight comes Love ' s old song. Comes Love ' s old sweet song. " — Ruth Zimnierinaii ' 29 A Fable A gaudy bird and a busy bee Were talking one day, And the discourse was in full sway, When the bird in anger, said, " See My brilliant plumage. Everyone loves to look at me. " The little bee was a perfect sage. He said, " All very well, but looks alone. Can never feed the man. Nor of progress turn a stone. I have a place in a living plan I feed the body While you, the sight. I work all day while You delight. All things are in harmony And work for humanity. If I cannot feed the mind with golden thoughts Neither can you feed the mouth with golden draughts. ' —Isabelle McDaiiicl ' 29 Wesf of the Qreat Divide I ' d like to live away out west, Where the sun sinks low and red. And the wind goes moaning through the tops, Of the pine trees o ' er your head. Where the coyotes howl in the gully Ab ove the cataract ' s roar; I ' d like to have all this again. All this again, and more. I ' d like to be away out there To dwell again alone Where the beauty of the hills and lakes Forever are mine to own. In the old log cabin where The bearskin rug and polished floor And old fire place with its flickering flare That casts weird shadows on the door. Bring memories of a long ago When I was young and free, When I owned all this world And all its riches belonged to me. —IsabcUc McDaiiicl ' 29 Webster ' s Yoliime becomes Voluble Eight o ' clock, by the Assembly timepiece! Eight o ' clock by the sounds of footsteps in the hall and the ringing of bells. Honestl) ' , we teachers of knowledge have a hard time of it! And among all the teachers of Garrett High, who is he who maintains such a high degree of intelligence as I in a lifetime? The title of " English teacher " should be mine for I teach the spelling of words, punctuation, defini- tions, etc. In fact, I am the most important personage in the building and everyone comes to me for information. Like a street vender, I cry aloud to those who pass me, their lost opportunity for gained knowledge. Here it is, boys! Here it is, girls! Stop and look at my valuable wares I have to offer for just the energy of turning a few pages. Walk up and help yourselves. It would be useless if this would draw no seeker. Here one comes. Good morning, Freshie. Seek, and away again to your class to prepare your lesson more fully. Has Miss Evard given you a hard lesson for today? That is not the correct way to treat me! Already my back is broken and a few pages ruined, so why be cruel to me again? What! are you offended by my insinuation or is it time for the bell? Well, good-bye. What with all my old pains to bear, I still can stand a few more to help others who are willing to learn. I have replaced many others before me and now I am getting so old that they have furnished me an assistant. Here comes Mr. Willennar to look up some of those economics terms which puzzle him. Now he must read that again to make an impression on his mind. Well, he is gone and here comes one of those dignified senior girls. She hurriedly reads it through (as seniors always are in a rush) and hurries away. When you have gone forth from high school be sure to remember to give a toast to the " Good Old Dictionary " where you obtained your learning. — Maur iw Kistlcr ' 29 A The Qhost I had been reading " The Jade God " , a book deahng with mysterious ac- tions, Chinese knives, a murder, and a frozen-faced maid who walked in her sleep. As I went slowl) ' up the stairs these incidents were churning through m) ' mind. " How in the world will it end? " was the question that was be- fore me. The wind blew through the trees gently swaying them and mak- ing a humming sound. I hesitated no longer, for ' twas such a night that Millicent was murdered. I jumped in bed and covered my head but wooed sleep in vain. ' Twas quiet a while later when I was dozing on the verge of slumber, when I saw a shadow. Creeping slowly, slowly, caine a hand. What ' s the matter, why is it so slow? Just then it touched my body. No longer was I quiet, for I jumped and the hand pulled back. " What was that? " I wondered, trying to quell my chattering teeth. Ages later, it seemed, the hand came back. I jumped out of bed and kicked. " Meeow, " our cat screamed, waking the whole household. The ghost was immediately thrown out the door. — Riiymuiid Buvtcb ' }0 " ast Year ' s " Bird ?iesr when the weather is cold as cold can be, Nothing looks inore forsaken, seems to me. Than a last year ' s nest, in a naked tree. Its building last Spring took many a day Of carrying feathers, string, mud, and hay It was built in such a thorough way — By a pair of birds .so ambitious and gay. They were needing a nest for the eggs so wee. Then — a home for their family of five, or three. These bird parents watched o ' er their children, there ' Til they tried their wings and went elsewhere. When fall arrived, the old birds knew That they not onlv had given their young its due But had built a nest to come back to — When again buds should open, and skies should be blue. But, if some sad happ ' ning — not hard to be guessed — Should prevent their return, other birds will be blest By the finding and using of that last year ' s nest. As this bird pair may help some others along. Let us ever be doing our work with a song. May each life, each " nest " , be built thoroughly Always ready, as it were, in a tree. If we fail to return, it may useful be To those that follow. May victories won By us, e ' er bring these words: " Well done. " When I at last do rest. And no longer need my nest, Howe ' er small. May it some one help along. To meet Life with a song. From Spring, thru Fall. — Glenoris L.

These people certainly are thirsty between classes. The bell has just rung and I surely am glad, because they ' ve almost worn me out! I don ' t mind it, though, for I know that they appreciate me and that means a lot. What Joes make people so thirsty in class? Perhaps it ' s the dry teachers. (There, there, I shouldn ' t have said that) . At any rate, when the bell rings, there is an immediate dash for me. I am easily the most popular object in school. (Unless it be Si Hurley ' s Ford). I bring the ice- cold waters of Olympus to the parched throats of ye High School Students. I am especially appreciated by Ned Walters. Look, see, observe! At any time you may discern him bending over me in the halls. And Orval " Wise? That boy is with me constantly. But, of course, you all know why. He uses me as an excuse to get out of classes. (I hope some of the teachers hear this and never let him go again). Well, here comes Harold Bloom! Aha! I guess I washed his face for him! He won ' t turn the water on so forcefully the next time. That reminds me of these girls with long hair, who always get the ends wet by letting it hang in the water. Verily and even forsooth, the best of us have our troubles! Did I say anything about the quality of the water? Maybe I did, but anyway, I can never say too much! It is clear and sparkling. Don ' t fail to drink some. It re- freshes, redecorates, relivens, and revigorates the system. (This is not an adver- tisement) . Well, I must cease as it is time for the bell and I will soon be busy again. I wonder why that bell doesn ' t ring. Mr. Wilkinson must be engrossed in that True Love Story magazine again. — Kitth Thomas ' 29 This is Station GHS broadcasting. Ladies and gentlemen of the unseen audience, we are here this afternoon to witness the battle of the century, staged between ' Slaughter- house " Jim Shreve and " One-Round " Marcella Snyder with Marie Thrush as referee. They will fight for the Underweight Championship of the World. All things point to a very exciting and interesting scrap, as the contestants are evenly matched in all dimensions of the sport. There goes the bell! They meet in the center of the ring! Jim, who is wearing a white fuzzy sweater, pulls some of the fuzz off and slams it in Marcella ' s face! She fires It back! Both seem to be taking considerable punishment. So far Jim seems to have the advantage, as he has the source of the ammunition. Oh! What a pretty one! Folks, I never saw anything quite so beautiful as that. " One-Round " Snyder wound up and landed a hard right to " Slaughterhouse " Jim ' s body! That blow seemed to jar every bone in Jim ' s anatomy. Hello! What ' s this? Oh, Referee Thrush steps in and stops the fight on the grounds that the contest is getting too rough. —Robert Hiiiklhi ' 29 " Stern Value " Looking Toward the Future!

Such is life in this smart, convertible Cabriolet! It is a closed car, convertible into a roadster. Or you may have the top down with the windshield and two side glasses up. Rubber covered floors and rubber insul- ated pedals; leather upholstery; crack- proof and weather-proof top material and one-piece windshield, nickel fin- ished, with wiper at bottotn as in our famous Phaeton Sedan. There is a parcel compartment in the back of the rear ipart- ment for golf clubs, parcels, etc. And a real rumble seat designed for comfort of passengers on a long journey; not a makeshift jump seat, but springed and padded same as the driver ' s seat. As to its strong construction, enduring ruggedness, efficient performiance, ease of handling and refinements, suffice it to say that no better Auburn has ever been built.
