fN 4 I difcriel We, the Staff, have now reached the end of the year, as you have reached the end of this book. We take this opportunity to extend our thanks to the business men of Gas City and vicinity, who have contributed so freely to the advertising, and we also wish to thank all subscribers who have helped by purchasing a copy of The Epoch. The Editor wishes to thank all members of the staff for their earnest efforts, and all pupils who have aided in any way in producing this year book. The Editor wishes to especially thank two per- sons, one a teacher and the other a pupil, who have been largely responsible for the success of this book: Miss Mabel 'Jacoby and Albert Spurgeon. This volume of "The Epoch" is put forth for the approval of the public, to be criticized or praised, according to its merits. -Editor.

It was a lark, we have to admit that, but Oh! how frightened we were at first, yet proud to be classed as high school pupils. As the weeks wore on into months, we grew more sure of our- selves, and gradually came to consider ourselves very important pupils in high school. Why shouldn't we! We were lauded before the assembly for our conduct, our industry, and our good grades. Even the Seniors were asked to compare their standing with ours. How hard we worked that first year! The fact is, we thought we had to, to get through high school. However, when we reached our Sophomore year, we fell into the ways of the high school "kids" and didn't work quite so hard. Not that we were lazy. Oh, my, no! But we tried to act sophisticated and important like the Seniors, and to us it seemed as though the Seniors never studied. We felt very superior to the Freshmen and smiled wisely when they got into wrong seats or forgot to go to classes. We came into our Junior year very happy and contented, ready to continue as before, but we found much work cut out for us. We needed money and needed it badly. The Seniors had to be entertained at the end of the year with a reception, and for receptions you need money. We sold candy, pop, and popcorn at the home games, had several markets, and a class party. With all of our efforts we had enough money to give a good reception, and we did. In fact it was the best Junior-Senior Reception ever held in Gas City High School. We admitted it. Al, our popular president, acted as toastmaster. Responses of various degrees of intelligence were made and wit flowed freely. - VVe have put on two class plays this year and through hard work we made each one equal the play given last year by the same people when they were Juniors. This was in addition to the fun we had rehearsing for them as well as putting them on. Do you remember, on the night of the play. when Fred's whiskers floated in the breeze, to the great delight of the audience, or when Howard, in his eagerness to do well, outdid himself by answering his own speech? Although our class has dwindled in number, we are just as strong as ever in spirit and pep. We have striven to keep up our good name by putting out the best Epoch ever read by the people of Gas City. In artistry. thanks to Ruby and her assistants, we have produced a "thing of beauty." We Seniors have learned that to win, we must work, and as we worked to Win in high school, so we must work to win all through life. 0 ---1THE EPOCH,1927L--- 0 U Senior Class VW!!

I, Howell Nesbitt, will to Willis Hutchins my place on the "Staff", my beautiful hair to Harold Pratt, and last, my aristocratic walk to Bill Dailey. All persons having been left anything by the Seniors of nineteen hun- dred and twenty-seven, please call for them at the High School building on the first day of June, nineteen hundred and twenty-seven. U Class Prophecy Every May brings back the year 1927 to my memory, and this year it was recalled more clearly than ever. One day while I was in a beauty shop having a marcel, a very dignified, gray-haired lady came in to have a permanent wave. She looked at me rather strangely, and then walked over to me and very graciously spoke. I had to look twice before I recognized Dorothy Ditmer, of our school days. After conventional greetings I asked her to lunch with me so that We could talk over our old school days in G. C. H. S. After we were seated at the table, Dorothy began by telling me she had married a Methodist minister and in traveling over the country with him, had seen many of our old classmates. She said she had spent a few days with Dr. and Mrs. A. Spurgeon. Mrs. Spurgeon was Edith Roberts when she was graduated. Al was class president and he has since become a great surgeon and is president of one or two hospital boards. They seem to be very happy. We recalled that the noted artist, R. Sturgis, was Ruby Street, art editor of our Annual. She has just attracted nation-wide attention by her exhibit in Chicago Art Institute. Charles Harris, editor-in-chief of our Annual, is editor of a big news- paper in New York. Many of his articles and editorials are syndicated. He attributes his success to the training received in G. C. H. S. Lillian Smith finally married "Truman," and after several spats and quarrels they are living happily in Fort Wayne. Dorothy asked me to pay particular attention to the costume she was wearing. After I had admired it, she told me it had been designed by Gertrude Crouch, who I knew was famous as a costume designer. She has a very up-to-date establishment on Fifth Avenue and her creations rival those of Worth. Alene Adrianson, with whom I kept up a desultory correspondence for a few years, married Merrill Ricks, who has a flourishing brokerage busi- ness in New York. It seems that most of the members of our class migrated to New York. Howard Fite and Albert Wilson are exceptions, however. Howard went to San Francisco, and Al. stayed in Marion. Howard is working for the benefit and uplift of the Chinese. Al. is general-manager for the Lindley Box company. Although several members of our class have become wealthy, only one has become really rich, that is Howell D. Nesbitt. He married a Boston ol?---THE EPOCH,1927-ll---0 girl of a Wealthy old family and they are now living on Long Island. Pearl Miller got married and is living on a farm in Wisconsin. Ed. Simmons is a famous composer and violinist. At the time of my talk with Dorothy, he was on a concert tour over Europe. Harlan Long and Frederick Gordon went into partnership and own a large furniture store in Boston. This was a big surpriseg I could a lot more easily have imagined Frederick a haberdasher. Dorothy said she had just recently seen Inez Davies. She was unable to tell me why Inez and "Tom" were never married. Inez became known all over the United States through her dancing and impersonations on the Chautauqua platform. After we had talked about every member of the class of 1927, Dorothy made me tell about myself. I told her I had done nothing very remarkable. I have written a few short stories and essays and have made a few ad- dresses before Women's Federated Club meetings over the country. -Virginia Crowell, '27. H The Senior Class Fight On October 8, 1926, the people living near the school house were startled to hear a crowd of rufiians gather at the high school and imme- diately start fighting or scrapping among themselves. After watching them awhile, they discovered them to be the Seniors and Juniors quar- reling over colors. Earlier in the evening the Senior boys tied the Maroon and White on top of the May pole in the school yard. At seven, the boys and girls as well, gathered at the school house. The Juniors tried to take the colors down, but they were protected by the Seniors who were ready to pounce on any one venturing to climb the greased pole. Alene Adrianson, Ger- trude Crouch, and Lillian Smith arrived on the scene gaily bedecked in Maroon and White. These girls were immediately pounced upon by the Junior girls, and were almost exhausted when the remaining Senior girls came to the rescue. At eight o'clock, when Mr. Routh blew the whistle. the old Maroon and White was still resting easy at the top of the May pole. The Seniors then went to town and noisily made known their victory. The next day the Maroon and White was still in supremacy. The Senior girls made a large black wreath and placed it over the assembly door in due respect for the grief-stricken Juniors. 30: A LITTLE LAUGH A little laugh is like the sunshine, It freshens all the day, It tips the peaks of life with light And drives the clouds away. The souls grow glad that hear it, And feel its courage strongg A laugh is just like music For cheering folks along. -Virginia Ferguson. 5 N 7 K. W K .

We were a large class then with many hopes and lots of ambitionjwhich we still have. s The first year we furnished part of the second team and two of the boys played on the first team. The Sophomores of that year gave us a party which, sorry to say, was a failure. The second year we were still a large class and took a large part in the athletic events, furnishing three men for the first basket ball team and several for the second team. We took a prominent part in the track meets and took second in the inter-class track contest. Several of the members took part in the operetta, "In Old Louisiana." One of our num- ber was awarded the honor sweater for getting the highest average of grades in scholarship and citizenship. We had a weiner roast and a class party that year. This year, the third of our career in high school. we are the most promising lot of students in the school for so we think.J We are ener- getic fans and boosters for the team. Practically all of the members be- long to some club or other. We are undertaking several money-making enterprises, as all Juniors do. At the color iight this year the Seniors were surprised at our strength. Their colors remained up, but so will ours next year. We have only one more year in high school, and after that we will all go our various ways. We are going to make these last two years count and try to make the people of Gas City remember the Juniors of '27 with pride. IOC ' THE MOVIE MENU See: The Reckless Lady-Lillian Smith.

I certainly prophesy an interesting and promising future for them." But that man was mistaken in just one respect. The group of pupils that he was speaking of were not Seniors, but the Freshman Class! Ot course there could be no mistake in the compliment which he had paid them even though the Seniors did have their gay feathers slightly ruffled. The truth is that there were twenty-seven entering high school in the fall. with an additional twenty-one joining them at mid-year, making a grand total of forty-eight. Due to their interest in all things good and the noticeable co-operation of all members, this class attained distinction in club work and other activities. One of these little green Freshies was chosen as yell leader for the high school. So are Freshies so insigniiicent, and do they contain chlorophyll? Notwithstanding a decrease in number from forty-eight to thirty-six, at the opening of the Sophomore year. quality is still one of our traits. Two of the boys were subs for the first team. five were regulars on the second team, and two girls were regulars on the girls' team. Five girls were members of the Y-Hi. fifteen of the Sophomores were prominent in Latin Club. and an additional twelve in Glee Club. An interesting record, is it not? Perhaps all this enthusiasm and desire to do and be something, originated when that man mistook these Freshies for Seniors.

A new course of study must be planned, new lessons prepared, and good grades must be made in order to get our credits. All of the girls except four are taking the academic course, Algebra, Latin, English, Art, and Home Economics. The boys are taking a commercial course, Commercial Arithmetic, Art, Manual Training, English, and Vocational Civics. We have been initiated and now feel ourselves more a part of high school life. It seems so long a time until Thanksgiving and then the weeks fly until it is Christmas and vacation time. After Christmas, examinations loom in the distance and we work all the harder so that we may get ex- empted. There was not anyone who got exempted in everything. One was exempted in four subjects. Promotion time comes and most of us move over. A few are left be- hind to take up their work with the new 9B's. There are only fifteen in the new 9B class. I often wonder if they feel as bewildered as we did when we came into high school. We have had supervised study introduced and at first we had some difliculty in adapting ourselves to it. We have also elected a new president, Edmond Vironet, in place of the old one, Kenneth Simmons, who has gone into the tenth grade. We initiated our new members early in the semester and hope it was as successful as our own in the fall. We have five girls, one regular and four substitutes, on the girls' first team, and one boy on the boys' first team and one on the second team. We have enjoyed our first year very much and hope to make our second one even more interesting. -Myrtle Belle Coy, '30 201 The teachers are the queerest things That ever I did see. If I don't stand and talk all clay It means salvation for me. No matter what I want to do It's always wrong with them. So I start praying at 3 o'clock But prayers never affect her or him. And when at last the bell doth ring And I've gone and got my cap, H. R. stands up and reads a list And salvation knocks me flat. -W. C. .0 Xu ...M -wg. ' 'I Q ' -wfrw , ,. gx ' V Aww 1, mx 'ff VNS.

"A fighter from the word go"-"a little dynamo"-these words describe Gotschall. He started the season with a new team, a team handicapped by inexperience and size, and made it one of the strongest quintettes in the county. The Tigers were the hardest fighting team in this section and a great share of the credit goes to Gotschall. Willis "Heavy', Hutchins. captain and iioorguard, was the key to the offense. We expect a great deal from him next season, a boy who never knows when to stop fighting. He was an important cog in the Tiger ma- chine this season. Robert "Bob" Frank, center of the team, was the high point man of the season. He bids fair to be one of the greatest athletes in the history of the school. Next year he should completely overshadow the work of his two brothers, who have worn the Maroon and White in previous years. William "Bill" Dailey, forward, was the only remaining veteran from last season's squad. He played an aggressive style of basket ball and always managed to put pep into the team when it was needed. He has a good eye and lots of iight. Albert "Al" Wilson, forward, is the only man lost by graduation. Quiet, determined, a hard fighter and a clean sport, he has all of the quali- ties that make up a Tiger. He was a big asset to the team and we will miss him next year. Kenneth "Buzz" Simmons, forward, made up in fight what he lacked in size. He is only a Freshman and has three more years in which to bring honors to the Maroon and White. He was an important claw in the Tiger machine that tore up many good teams this season. Herbert "Curly" Walsh, guard, was a stonewall on defense. He stop- 0----THE EPOCH,1927--l-l--o ped some of the biggest men in the county. Cool, confident, determined, and a scrapper-that's "Curly." He will continue to say "The bigger they are the harder they fall," next season. . Joseph "Derek" Miitsch, substitute guard, and big boy of the team, was another stone in Gas City's defense that stopped many of its op- ponents this season. What he lacks in "gab" he makes up in iight. Harry Kimes, Russel Smithson and Edmund Vironet, the remaining three men on the squad, are hard, clean lighters and good sports. Al- though participating in only a few of the Varsity games they trained faithfully and made the regulars play hard to retain their positions. They will be with us next year. John Wagoner, student manager, has iilled his position better than any one has in previous years. He is the strongest Tiger booster of them all and besides being Gotschall's right hand man was a "pal" to every man on the team. He will also be with us next year. IO! The Second Team Mr. Routh, Coach Donald Simons, forward Willard Oliver, center Charles Harris, forward Harry Price, guard Charles Ray, forward Ralph Atkinson, guard Darrow Pearson, guard Ernest Gotschall, guard Clarence Graves, guard Marion Teague, forward Although winning only a few games this season, the Second Team played hard and upheld the standards of Tiger sportsmanship. The boys trained faithfully and deserve credit for the spirit they have shown. Mr. Routh, who coached the team, taught them the principles of the game and has made each individual a prospective Big Tiger. 0-l-iilTHE EPOCH,1927---- 0 GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAMQ Mascot-Martha Deeren Coach-Miss Cora Mae Zell Ruth Bowman Bernice Butler Virginia Ferguson Vivian Gent Virginia Crowell Ruth Voris Rosanna Malott Lenore Braithwaite Thelma Richards Eleanor Wright Bessie Mae Lyons Geneva George Florence Nieman Genevieve Walker Mildred Crouch Due to the fact that we did not have a girls' team last year, the ma- terial was very inexperienced, and the team worked under the handicap all season.

In spite of the fact that the team was small and inexperienced, the high school and the town backed it to the limit. The team has been especially good in scholarship and sports- manship. They have complied with the training rules and in every Way have lived up to the standards that characterize a Tiger. Wilson is the only man who graduates. He is a valuable man and will be missed, although Gotschall has some excellent material to replace him with. Next season promises to be the best one in the history of the school. With the splendid spirit that exists throughout the entire school system and the town supporting the team and coach, our prospects for the coming season are very bright. We wish the best of luck to the Tigers of 1927-28. 202 SOME YELLS THAT DID THE WORK Fight! Tigers! Fight! Tigers! Fight! Fight! Fight! Yea! Rah! Tigers! Yea. Team! Say. Team! We're proud of you! Yea!

The courses offered in these early schools were college preparatory courses, since most of the graduates expected to attend some institution of higher learning. At this time people looked upon education above the grades as a luxury to be enjoyed only by the sons and daughters of the rich. In a few short years high schools sprang up rapidly all over the country and 'as a result, every boy and girl now has a chance to receive a high school education. This is no longer looked upon as a luxury. High school courses, howevei', did not keep pace with the democratic spirit- of the schools. Many boys and girls attended high schools who never expected to enter a college or university, yet these pupils were re- quired to take the traditional college preparatory course. Custom is a diflicult thing to break and many schools are still bound by the old shackles. Is it any wonder that many pupils quit school before graduation? Gas City High School, along with other progressive schools, has broken away from the old custom, and is now offering four courses in addition to the college preparatory course. Since many of our pupils enter the business world after graduation. the Commercial Course is a very popular one. This course includes such practical subjects as Commercial Arithmetic, Bookkeeping, Shorthand, Typewriting, Business English, Commercial Law, and Salesmanship. The Bookkeeping course aims to give the students a practical and usable knowledge of the principles of double entry bookkeeping and of the cash book, sales and purchases books, and general ledger. Twenty exer- cises are worked out at the first of the year, after which two laboratory sets are used to illust1'ate the theory set forth by the text book. O--.li-THE EPOCH,1927-i--o Q . Z TYPING The typing department has given splendid assistance toward running the business side of our school. All Annual work has been typed by typing pupils. Beginning typewriting courses aim only to teach the keyboard and instill confidence in the pupils. Accuracy is emphasized far above speed. and errors are penalized heavily. The average speed should be about 35 or 40 words per minute at the end of the first year. The second year of typewriting is devoted to speed, with accuracy still held in the foreground. One incorrect stroke is penalized 50 strokes, or practically one line of ordinary type. The average speed should be about 60 words per minute. In beginning shorthand the Gregg Manual is used, and students are confined to drill on forms, rules, penmanship, and slow dictation. At the end of the first semester the students must know all the word signs in the Gregg system. By the end of the first year all prefixes and sufhxes must have been learned. In advanced shorthand the entire year is devoted to gaining speed in taking dictation in both old and new matter, literary, and business forms. The average speed is 110 to 125 at the end of the senior year. Commercial Arithmetic aims to teach the student five things, namely, command of the fundamental processes of addition, subtraction, multi- plication, and division, a workable knowledge of fractions and taxes, part- nerships and corporations, commission and brokerage. U---4?THE EPOCH,1927-l---o DOMESTIC SCIENCE All High Schools must provide at least one full year's work in Home Economics for the girls. Home Economics instruction should be organized and conducted so as to accomplish the following results: Q15 It should give to our young people a more intelligent appreciation for the important and fundamental occupation ot' home making. Q25 It should prepare them for etlicient and economic work in the home. ' Four courses in Home Economics are given at the p1'esent time in the Gas City High School. One semester of foodsis given in the Freshman year. The aim of the foods course is to give the girl a practical knowledge of food in relation to her healthg experience in selection and preparation of foods and practice in planning, preparing and serving meals. One semester of clothing is also given in the Freshman year. The question arises in this course, "Why study textiles ?" Textiles should be studied because a large part of the income is spent for textiles. The pur- pose of most clothing courses is to teach the girl how to buy more wisely. This includes: CD How to judge qualityg C25 how to choose wisely for beauty and utility, and Q35 how to care for articles after purchase. A course in Dressmaking is offered for those girls who have com- pleted their first year of sewing. This course gives them more practical experience in constructing clothing and in the choice of clothing. A very interesting course in related art has been given this year. The great objective in this course is to develop a desire and an ability to apply the art principle in solving new problems, either individual, home or of the community. A course in Hygiene and Public Health will be given next year. Some course of this kind, adapted to special needs of students, should indeed form an essential and required part of every system of education. o---- THE EPOCH,192T----1--o MUSIC Music is one of the most valuable subjects in the school curriculum, and the influence of music in the lives of both children and adults is more powerful than that of almost any other educational activity. Music affects human beings favorably both in their intellectual and emotional lives. Music has come to be more and more commonly regarded as an indis- pensable subject and a larger place is being accorded it. Music, as offered by a High School fab exerts a definite beneficial effect upon the physical, mental and spiritual life of the student, tbl pro- vides an excellent type of intellectual training, fcl is of high value as a socializing force, fdl a worthy use of leisure time, fel indirectly introduces music into the home. The home needs music to express its social life, as music needs the home to supply an opportunity for its effective use. One of the most noticeable shortcomings of our American social life has been our inability to engage in a satisfactory song-singing at social or other gatherings. Doubtless the chief reason for this deficiency is that few of us know the words of our songs. It has been our aim to meet this need. Constant companionship with good music tends to develop character. Shakespeare's statement: "The appetite increases by what it feeds upon," is nowhere truer than in the musical world. Courses in music offered to our High School students this year are: fab Music Appreciation, in which the student studies artists of today, opera and oratorio as vocal forms, and classification of voices. The de- partment has a splendid library of Victrola records that have aided greatly in appreciation work. fbi Orchestra. Orchestra is offered only two days each week, but We are looking forward to having it daily again. Riley says, "Sing as you will, O singers all, who sing because you want to sing." ol----THE EPOCH,1927-1- o MANUAL TRAINING Only a few short years ago the boys and girls received practical train- ing for home duties under the guidance of father and mother. Boys and girls in this way became fitted to care for their own home. The present- day home does not offer such training, and the school is attempting to give courses that will train for home-making. Manual training is one of these courses, and it is a required course for all boys in the seventh. eighth, and first year of high school. The course is made as practical as possible. Boys in the seventh and eighth grades no not make many projectsg he1'e they are taught the fundamentals of wood working. Boys in these grades are taught the names of common tools, also they are taught their parts and uses. The boys are permitted to make such projects as key rack, tie rack, broom holder, cutting board. book rack. By making such projects they are required to put to use the knowledge gained concerning the parts and uses of tools. The high school class takes up advanced work and should be allowed to work on machinery. The machinery should consist of a planer, jointer, rip and cut-off saws, band saw, and lathe. Although at present our shop is not equipped with such machinery. it is hoped by next season that we will have this equipment. In the manual training classes, boys not only learn to make minor repairs around the home but also to make useful articles as tables. pedestals. medicine cabinets, book cases, etc. EPocH 1927-.l---0 0---.wi-THE , 115119 SUNSHINE SOCIETY President-Edith Roberts Secretary-Treas.-Dorothy Ditmer Reporter-Lillian Smith Sponsor-Miss Ocea Kerr Ruth Baker Eleanor Wri ht Vontella Kelly Elizabeth Price Erna Van Valer Inez Davies Mary Lewis Ruth Lewark Louise Smithson Wilma McPheron Pauline Stevens Helen Morris Myrtle Belle Coy Vivian Gent Ruby Street Mildred Crouch Dorothy Davis Mary Bonewitz Esther Grinin Florence Nieman Delores Grey Ruth Bowman Ida Lee Fish Bernice Butler .

The members decided to accomplish many things in order to live up to the name "Progressive" Work was started right away. At the meetings, which were held every Wednesday, interesting reports were given. The things which were specialized on were office training and the business world. When the club studied the filing system, Miss Smith showed the members the filing system in the superintendent's oflice, and explained the method to the girls. A lost and found department of the club took care of any article turned in and in due time the article was returned to its owner. An employment agency was also started. Several high school students were given jobs during holidays through this agency. Ol-L-THE EPOCH,1927?--- 0 V ali.

Detailed reports upon numerous scientific problems and leaders were given by members or groups of members. These reports were somewhat of a success, but the club as an enterprise was not as successful as it would have been had more of the members been really interested in science. -William Overly 0-.- --THE EPOCH,192T- -l--0 Nw- - -- p D - 1- Y.- -fi -- - , ,, LATIN CLUB President-Geneva Walker Secretary-Treasurer-Esther Grifiin Vice-President-William Williams Reporter-Ida Lee Fish c Sponsor-Miss Lillie Albertson Vivian Gent Ruth Voris James Glaze Geraldine Stevens Ernest Gotschall Mildred Jeffrey Kenneth Simmons Wilma McPheron Clarence Graves Zora Wilson Earl Dawalt Helen Atkinson Vontella Kelley SODALITAS LATINI The Latin Club met every Week in the Latin room.

At the opening of the year, the members elected a chairman of the program committee. At each meeting this person selected three helpers. We had several good programs and good times. We had songs translated into Latin and sang different ones at each meeting. We also had a book telling about the life of the Romans. At each meeting a different member gave a report from it, which has proven to be very interesting and very helpful. One of our best programs was: Roll Call. -The President A r ? ,.

For two years it was very successful, having sponsored a number of banquets and other activities. This year, however, it has not been very successful. The members of the club did not seem to take interest in the affairs so in time the club just stopped meeting. There were no new members taken in this year, although we started to. The club held one stag party at the high school, making it a chili feed. A very good time was had by all. The time after the feed was spent with a Fibbing Contest. Afterwards a baseball game was held in the gym. It is my hope that next year the club will be like a live wire, as it was the iirst year it was organized. Make it a club that every boy in high school will want to join.

They also gave some splendid numbers during Exhibit Week, for National Music Week, and for Commencement activities. 0--i-4-THE EPOCH,1927-- O BAND The possibility of organizing a school band has been under discussion for a year or more. The shortage of instruments in the school orchestra aggravated the discussion somewhat this year. So just before the close of the first semester the superintendent asked the Board of Education for authority to start a band and take all necessary steps to assure its success. The Board heartily gave not only its consent, but its wholehearted support. Mr. Ralph Bailey, a bandman with marked ability in starting bands, was called in to take charge. Arrangements were made for him to come to the schools three afternoons and one evening a week, to give free instruc- tion to all who went into the band. After six weeks he had a band of thirty-two pieces make its first public appearance, and four weeks later they played during the intermission of the high school play. The progress of the band has really been marvelous. The proposal for starting a school band was enthusiastically sup- ported by students and townspeople. Parents willingly purchased ex- pensive instruments for their children. A Tag Day benefit Was given hearty support and netted about a hundred dollars for a band uniform fund. The student body arranged a benefit basketball game which added seventy-five dollars to this fund. The employes of the Illinois Glass Com- pany raised and presented to the band fund 325105, which made it pos- sible for the uniforms to be purchased this year. Gas City school children are very fortunate to have such splendid support, and the student body are determined to do all in their power to show they are worthy. Parents, fellow students, Illinois Glass employes, and all who have helped make the organization of our school band possible, we thank you! We know your satisfaction will be in our progress so we are going to give our best. 01i.1-THE EPOCH,1927 0 FRESHMAN RECEPTION The 9A class entertained the 8B's with a very pleasant reception the evening of September 17, 1926. The evening was spent in the initiation of the new Freshmen. Refreshments of ice cream and cake were served and a good time was enjoyed by all. HI-Y CHILI FEED On the night of October 3rd, the Hi-Y held a chili feed at the high school. Afterwards Willis Hutchins made a speech on the Hi-Y principles and expectations for the coming year. Next a iibbing contest was held in which Mr. Routh and Mr. Gotschall starred. The succeeding and last number on the program was an indoor baseball game between the fibbing contestants and the remaining members present. The game was very ex- citing, the outcome being indefinite. THE CRANK PARTY On the evening of October 25th, 1926, the Four Cranks entertained with an elaborate banquet at the Wayside Inn in honor of the seventy- third anniversary of the Indiana State Teachers' Association, which oc- curred the preceding week. The first speaker of the evening was the Right Honorable Beesicks Joshua Brophy, who spoke on the subject, "Evolution and Its Relation To Me." This address was very loudly applauded. The second speaker was Bishop Horatis Lincoln Routh, who spoke on "Love," a subject always highly entertaining to an audience such as that present. Other orators of the evening were Madame Methodist Episcopal Jacoby, Sir Lancelot Aristotle Gotschall, and Lords Romeo Caesar Car- mony, and Wallace Hagenbach Leach. Guests of the evening were Mr. and Mrs. Job Pratt, Mrs. Wallace Hagenback Leach, Mrs. Beesicks Joshua Brophy, and the Misses Harriet Beecher McCormick, Mercuria Compton, Mignonette Riordan, Letitia Amanda Albertson, Gretchen Walling, Gabrilla King, Ferdinanda Riley, Lucinda Longfellow and Faith Andrews. I The menu consisted of steak fGas City's specialtyj, H. S. Freshman's Misfortune, Policeman's Favorite, Jeweler's Delight, and Everlasting Sweet. Miss Rowena Guilliams and Miss Cordelia Zell sang a number of negro spirituals, which added a most pleasing contrast to the serious pro- gram of the evening. The hostesses were the Misses Oleomargerine Kerr, Hallelujah Over- man, Miranda Jones, and Mehitable Standiford. Y-HI HALLOWE'EN PARTY The Y-Hi girls held a Hallowe'en party at the home of Erna Van Valer, October 29. The evening was spent in playing games and dancing.

In the evening when the gong has plunked, We hear the name of each that flunked, And added to this sorrowful list, The bad boys' names are never missed. I knew right well there'd be some pep Because our yell leaders were there. Yep, Both Ed and Dee adorned the list, And Mutt Pratt's name was never missed "Lol and behold! Roast pork," quoth he, And then he read my name with glee. At first I tried to run a bluff, Then settled down to strut my stuff. Before a Whipping time goes fast, A half hour soon goes flying pastg But oh! that hour went by so slow, I swear I thought 'twould never go. -Ernest Gotschall. " X XL 'K x v l x X JK, .
