It is one of the largest in the middle west in that it takes longer to get from one place to another than on any other known campus. It is the most intriguing in the middle west in that its buildings are scattered in so many different parts of the city, that it commands views, varied and unusual. Above is pictured the school seen across Greene’s Square, a city park which we claim as “Our Campus.” This bit of ground is resplendent all the year—a green haven in the warm months and a white fairyland in the winter. Below in the rear is the State Theatre, “our school auditorium,” where all general assemblies are held. School functions take place here in the morning, so as not to interfere with the news reels and “talkies” of the theatre.

A.” might be the title of the above picture. The “Y. W.” is the home of girls’ athletics. There is only one gymnasium in the high school, and as the room is small, it takes the entire day to accommodate all the boys. Therefore, the girls use the “YAW gymnasium during school periods for their health classes, and sometimes at noon and after school for tournaments. Another city building much used by Washington pupils is the Public Library shown below. It is a reliable and near source for information not available in the school library. It supplies material for society debates as well as for class work in Washington. There is almost always a display in the Art Gallery on the second floor. Some famous paintings, many interesting ones, and a fabric exhibition have been shown so far this year.

All high school rides or walks to see our stars perform on the big stage of this building. “Where do your track men and basketball men practice?” asks someone. So below is the Y. M. C. A. where great all-staters, record-breakers, and tournament winners get their start. The “Y. M.” is another public building which is generously lent to supply Washington’s needs.

It is the center of the city: it is a beautiful memorial to those who died for their country; it is the scene of the graduation exercises of Washington High School and of joint assemblies of Washington and Grant schools. Thus we end our zig zag tour of the large and widespread campus of Washington Senior High School. AIRPLANE VIEW 19 3 0 NineART WORK IN THE CEDAR MODERN sculpture has furnished the theme of the 1930 “Cedar.” The reproductions found in this book are block prints that follow the line technique of Rockwell Kent. The hands that appear on the title page were originally designed by Mario Korbel. “Speed” and “The Dancing Group” by Harriet W. Frismuth were selected to represent the staff of “The Cedar” ami "Contents” respectively. Such figures as the former create a feeling of forward motion; while balance in the delicate poise of the human figure is displayed in the Latter. “Mother” by Ivan M astro vie is the title of the statue which introduces the "Faculty” section. This sculptor is outstanding for diversity in his sculpture; some is classical, and some is extremely modern. He is a Dalmatian whose art has come to symbolize the national aspirations of that brave people. Antonio Marini is an Italian sculptor who has vast cuture in the arts of all periods. It is his work, “Foresight,” which has been copied to introduce the section for Classes. Although this statue is based on classical principles of design, it carries with it a touch of the modern feeling. “Forever Young.” and its companion male figure, “Forever Panting,” which precede the sections devoted to “Activities” and “Clubs” were designed by Allan Clark, an American sculptor. These representations of youthful emotions are typical examples of Allan Clark’s unusual simplification of line. "Right to the Jaw,” the title of the block print for “Athletics” was made by Mahroni Young. It was recently acquired by the Brooklyn Museum. Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s monument to "Columbus” which was erected for the Port Of Palos has been used to make the “Autographs” section attractive. "Victory” by a native Iowan, Abastenia St. L. Eberle, is the original from which the "Finis” print has been made. The poise and superb physique of this figure deserve admiration of the lovers of competition. With grim concentration which is strikingly portrayed in the face, the figure has at last grasped the symbolic Laurel wreath.

Hallman Principal Alice Rogers Edna Derby Dean of Girls Secretary ADMINISTRATION IN addition to the usual work of attendance records, reference library and office routine the organization fosters a number of features some of which deserve mention. Home room organization is widely known for its constructive courses in citizenship, vocational guidance and homemaking. It is here that the school singing is developed and preparation under pupil leadership is made for the annual song assembly. The thrift-budget system provides revenue for all exculars, except social events, and is typical of the co-operative work by all pupils to support the activities of the school. The assembly plan is worked out with two ideas in mind; to develop as much talent among pupils as possible and to bring the best outside talent available to the school. For the realization of the first aim, home room programs arc encouraged Friday mornings, and each of the classes prepares a program in the library once a month. An assem- bly committee consisting of five teachers purchases talent from lyceum agencies and secures other num. bers for the general school assemblies once a month. The school has a three year program of vocational guidance. Year one, many business and professional men and women from the community come into the school and hold conferences with pupils interested in their respectiev calling. Year two, the whole school in small groups under skilled guides visits factories, stores, shops, institutions and studios all over the city. Year three, two experts in vocational guidance spend a week in the school devoting most of their time to individual conferences. The Washington Education Fund, established this year, enables a committee composed of the Counselor, Dean, and Principal to maek small loans to worthy pupils in nee dof help. The fund was made possible by the generous donations received from the Travel Club, the Abbie Stone Abbott Club, the Class of 1927, and the Delphian Society. 1 9 3 0M"" ElevenLover Row: Upper Row: Cecelia Lcvcn Leone Sutherland Dean Rarnhi er Marv K.

Chaney Malic Jean Toohy Art COURSES OF STUDY Elective DRAFTING Two Units The work in drafting includes projection and lettering, mechanical details and sections, isometrics, floor plans, simple tracing and blue printing. The pupils do lettering and plat work for school activities and the office. Elective ART Three Units The work in art includes figure and still life drawing applied to composition through costume design, linoleum cuts, and posters. An acquaintance with the history of art, a knowledge of application of principles of perspective, and in decorative landscape composition a knowledge of scale, color harmony, and the relation of painting to architecture—all arc stressed. Elective HOUSEHOLD ARTS Three Units In sewing, the work is largely individual and the problems mastered include a wide range of beautiful and useful garments. Adaptation of commercial patterns is practiced and cutting, fitting, and machine work taught. Elective FRENCH Three Units The first year stresses reading ordinary French with ease, a correct pronunciation, and a recognition knowledge of grammar. Speaking and understanding French runs through the whole course. Formal grammar and writing are reserved for advanced pupils. Required HEALTH One-half Unit Games, efficiency tests, apparatus work, stunts, track, some formal drill, health talks and advice in personal hygiene constitute the features of this department. The regular class work is supplemented by an effort in home rooms to encourage yearly physical examination. Elective MUSIC Three Units Instrumental music including band and orchestra, voice for beginners and glee clubs for advanced pupils, and group singing comprise the offerings in this department. Appreciation and harmony are given when the number registering warrants the formation of a class. Outside piano may be credited if registered for in advance with the head of the department and a satisfactory examination approved and passed.

John Gcrwift Ella Grissel Science History Science Mathematics Leonard Paulu Science COURSES OF STUDY Required One Vnit Elective SC1ENCE Two .Wore Units Biology, a tenth year subject only, is a desirable elective for pupils in commerce, elementary teaching, nursing and those interested in electing three full years of science. This subject is essential if one would understand the world of living things—plants and animals—in their true relation to human life. Chemistry, an eleventh year subject, is a basic science; it shows how, utilizing the raw materials created in nature’s laboratory, man creates the products required for the health, happiness, and protection of all mankind. Physics, a twelfth year subject, is the best college entrance science. It is a prerequisite for all technical and scientific courses as well as essential for an understanding of many common natural phenomena. MATHEMATICS Elective Three Units Plane geometry, in the tenth year, following elementary algebra in the junior high school, is a college entrance requirement. Intermediate algebra in the eleventh year is offered for a semester and is followed by a semester of solid geometry. Both of these subjects arc recommended for college entrance and essential for those •'nticipating engineering careers. Advanced algebra and trigonometry’ are given alternately in the twelfth year and are highly desirable electives for eastern college entrance or for those planning for technical training in college. SOCIAL STUDIES Required One and One-half Units Elect ive Two .Wore U nit s Modem history’ covering the time between 1600 and the present day, is offered in the tenth year. American history is required of all pupils in the eleventh year. Government, concerned primarily with the constitutional system of our nation and state but including brief summary of the types of government of other civilized nations, is required of all pupils for one semester in the senior year. The remaining half of the year may be devoted either to economics or to social problems. -1 9 3 0 iHmimmimmiiNmimimiNiNiiMii ThirteenTHE CZEIOfRF?

Travis business l.aw Mathematics Mabel DeWoody Marguerite Chapman Leota Swem Commerce Commerce Commerce COURSES OF STUDY Elective COMMERCE Three Units Pupils who secure the recommendation of the school for business careers have in addition to their commercial studies, at least two years of English, a year and a half of history and government and a year of science. The required science should be taken in the tenth year. It is advisable to decide at the beginning of the eleventh year between accounting and secretarial work as it makes a program too full to take both bookkeeping and stenographic work. It is a questionable practice for a pupil to attempt to take a foreign language and mathematics for college preparation and to prepare adequately for a business career at the same time. The work involves the covering of too much ground in three years and the result is not the best training for either. In addition to bookkeeping or shorthand or typing, pupils may take business arithmetic, geography, law, and salesmanship. No graduate may receive the unqualified service of the employment service who ranks below the upper fourth of the class. Elective SPANISH Nine Units Reading, grammar, and conversation arc taught in the order indicated. Spanish is now acceptable in most colleges in meeting a language entrance requirement. Spanish, as well as any other modern language, should be taken long enough to insure ability to read, speak and understand it. It is questionable practice to pursue any modem language merely two or three years in high school without following it up in college with advanced work heading to mastery.

Two Units Elective ENGLISH 7U,0 Units Proficiency in speaking and writing and an appreciation of masterpieces of literature arc the general aims of the work in English. In literature courses there is intensive study of classics; broad appreciation and interest is developed through collateral reading. In the senior year there is opportunity to elect college entrance English, a writing course (journalism), or oral English (speech). This arrangement pupil to stress the phase of English in which he is weak or to develop any special ability that he may possess in speaking or writing. Work in second year Latin begins in the tenth Elective LATIN Three Units year of senior high school. It is still the most generally desired language for college entrance. Because of the Latin nomenclature in dentistry, Law, medicine and pharmacy, it is recommended for professional preparation in these fields. It is also highly desirable in teaching and as a foundation for specialization in modem languages. No longer is Latin taught because of the theory that it is good to “train the mind" or in order to teach English grammar. As long as it is required in the liberal arts world and is recognized as an assurance of intellectual achievement it will maintain itself on its merits. 19 3 0 FifteenSixteen iiiimimiM mnmmmiMimimiiiiinimimmi 1 9 3 0....................................... mum...._____THE CZEPRR w OFFICERS FOR JANUARY CLASS George Crawford, Vice-President Wallace Boyson. Treasurer James Sigmund, President Lois McBroom, Secretary CLASS OF JANUARY, 1930 The graduates without pictures are: Charles Davis, Douglas Rundquist, James Schultz, Ann Smith, Kenneth Wagner TTHE Senior Class of January 1930 is the ninth to graduate from Washington at the mid-year since 1896 when the first midyear exercises were held in December. However. between 1907 and the present no exercises have been held at the end of the first semester. Seventy-nine seniors received their diplomas at the commencement exercises held with Grant High School at the Memorial Coliseum on January 17. The activities of the class have included monthly assemblies, a senior mixer, a banquet, and a senior play. A clever class day program, a one-act play in the form of a reminiscence called “Twenty ■■■MpMMMMHHKii'i'iiiii'iiu'iiiiiiiimimiii’ir i t) Years After,” was presented. The scene was laid in 1950 aboard a dirigible enroute for Europe. The class officers had arranged to take the trip together in order to discuss old times, and upon their tuning in on the television, the program that was seen by the aid of a “shadow box" proved to be made up of numbers by members of the class who had advanced far in their chosen fields. The “last class day rite” of planting the ivy was done in mock heroic style, as the time of year did not permit the planting to be don° on the school grounds. The advisers of this class were Miss Boy-ack, Miss James, and Miss Quigley.

JO: Senior Play CLASS SONG Tune—“Painting the Clouds with Sunshine' Seniors have come to say good-bye to Washington; A final farewell we all must sing. Our troubles and our fun—Oh, all the things we’ve done In mem'ry our treasure we will hold. Friendships we’ve made stronger will grow— To all the teachers we know. We bid good-bvc wondering why wc have to go; We realize when we say we graduate today, C. R. H. S., we arc fond of you! Now we leave in our will to those who follow still, The pleasure we found in work and play; And so we ask that you who stay behind are true To Washington and her colors gay. We dare you to fight; follow the right; Honor the orange and black! Welcome us too, when wc arc blue, and hurry back. Anti though our paths will part, one love wc share in heart— Forever our love of Washington! 19 3 0 Twenty-fiveOFFICERS FOR JUNE CLASS Gerald Rosenbercer, Treasurer Lyman Mitchell, Secretary Edwin Novak, President Edith Knox, Vice-President SENIOR CLASS EVENTS PAST AND FUTURE Senior Advisers: Miss Rogers, Miss Cock, Miss DeWoody, Mr. Miller, Miss Witwer 1.

From the depth of a sheltered quarry He lures the shapeless loam, Working it over lovingly With a diligence his alone. The statues’ rough, crude outline The shape of the untouched mass, Determines the truthful value As the long-lived ages pass. Mold and line of each form Make the unified one,— 9 Weighed and scored with equal hand Till the making days are done. Passed to critical judges, Before whom kings may pall. The work of a truthful master Surpasses the deeds of all. So may our school be a master, Shaping the thoughts of youth, Guiding the free and untrained mind OUR SCULPTOR In the paths of beauty and truth. 1 d 3 .........................

You mold with fingers deft our feeble clay, And bake us ’neath your everlasting sun; You've taught us what is good to do and when; You've grieved o’er our missteps and our falls, And though you’re only built by weakling men. A true heart beats within your homely walls. What can we say with but our own poor words, How can we tell with but a futile tongue Of that strong bond of love that truly girds Our hearts to that one school to which we’ve clung, And always shall remember with a tear As something that’s a part of us, and dear? 19 3 0 Fifty-threeTHE CEICDfRR w J.

On the plastic material, which, as sophomores, we offerer! hopefully to this institution, have been imprinted lines and curves, giving strength and purpose to that willing substance. At last it has begun to assume form and character. We begin to see why it was created. The Cedar enil)odies the design of that careful sculpturing. Thus the theme of the 1930 Cedar—for every Cedar has its motivating thought—is our school, our sculptor! Annuals have been a feature of Washington High School life for twenty years. The original plan was to select the entire staff from the senior class. This year, however, mem-l ers of the staff represented all grades and were chosen from lists of recommendations prepared by the faculty. Those chosen are as follows: Editor-in-chief, Virginia Slauson; Business manager, Edwin Novak; Advertising manager, John Getty, and Associate manager. Richard Weatherwax; Associate Editors, Jack Piper, Lois McBroom, Charlotte Kanealy, Byron Anderson, Virginia Shaler, Margaret Ganson, Virginia Vane, Jerald Greenblatt, Velma Holets.

It is great fun to | onder over those pioneer records of the school's activities, just as it will amuse students ten years from now to look over tuis Cedar—wondering what has become of this boy and that girl, recalling the “high spots” of high school days, laughing over the queer styles of 1930. In the 1916 Year Book one notices the good, clear snapshots, the absence of names under group pictures, humorous division pages, four classes, and in 1917 and 1918 the f lint coloring of wartime interest. Worthy of comment is the fact that several of the jokes which appear in these publications are still used! One is at first astonished by the fact that one hundred forty-nine pupils graduated in that class fourteen years ago; but at that time there was no west side high school—all the boys and girls of the city came to Washington. ][ 9 3 QiimniHiittiMiiiimiiiimiiniiiiiuiiiimiiimimiiuiiMiiiiiMiiiniimimiiiiiMiiiiiniiinnmiHiii Fifty-five ItMININIIMII laiiMimi iinivfiintirvrfitMtmFirst Row: G.

Many new students coming at the mid-semester have made the instrumentation practically complete. One important affair in which the orchestra participated was playing for the Pure Food Show. The money received for playing bought a new viola for use in the orchestra. A special orchestra, selected from the band and orchestra, played for the sophomore play. This orchestra played both classical and dance music from regular theatre scores. A special orchestra also played for the junior and senior plays. The string quartette, which played at the Christmas Program, is entered in the Music Contest. Its members are Kenneth Skersick, violin; Nadine Hula, violin; Marion Dietz, viola: and Paul Krachmer, cello. Soloists from the orchestra in the contest are Stanley Vesely. violin, and Paul Krachmer. cello. Sunday afternoon, March 16, the orchestra and the string quartette played with the band in the annual concert. An all city orchestra, composed of the outstanding members of the four junior high schools and the two senior high schools, has recently been organized under Mr. Moehl-mann’s direction . This orchestra will give a concert late in the school year.

The scene of the play is laid in the home of Aubrey Allington at Marlowe, England. Aubrey Al- lington, Robert Martin, and his wife Louise, Alberta Haynes, are beset with creditors, so that the legacy of a deceased uncle is most welcome. However, George Maitland, a cousin i n Mexico (supposedly D. Brvant T. Pirnie J. Moehl dead) Would re- ceive the money in case of Aubrey’s death. Rather than pay their debts they plan to “blow Aubrey to small bits' presumably, after which episode he will reappear as George Maitland to claim the money and re-marry Louise. The plan miscarries due to the meddling of the gardener Giles, Frank Waldron, and Aubrey barely escapes with his life; but he is enabled to carry out his plans to return as George Maitland. However, the butler Sprules, Thomas Pirnie, and Simpson, the parlour maid, Doris Bryant, cherish matrimonial plans which require money, so Sprules arranges that his brother Henery, Emil Zilla, shall appear as George Maitland and claim the legacy. Aubrey, alias George Maitland, appears and at the same time Jean Everard an old friend of Louise, Marguerite Konecny, comes to console the “poor widow.” Unknown to Aubrey Sixty IIIMI 1 9 3 0- tun nut in n in in it in 11 mi 11"I AM THE REAL GEORGE MAITLAND!” “TONS OF MONEY” and Louise, she has married George Maitland five years before, and when she sees Aubrey, disguised as George, she falls upon his neck and claims him as her long lost husband. Aubrey is obliged to carry out the delusion, much to the anger of Louise. In the meantime Henery appears as George Maitland, and Aubrey is obliged to “drown” and reappear in the person of Rev. Brown, a friend of Louise. All goes smoothly, until George Maitland himself, player! by Willard Bain, appears, summoned by telegrams which the lawyer, James Chesterman, John Moehl, has sent. Henery is discovered to be an imposter, and he flees, fearing the consequences of his disclosure. Jean is finally convinced that George Maitland the third truly is her husband, because, as she has told all the others, “I’d know you anywhere by the way you kiss.” Miss Bernita Mullet, Louise’s prim maiden aunt, Ruth Kemp, who is very hard of hearing, introduces an element of humor by her intense density. A dispute arises between Aubrey and George Maitland as to who shall receive the legacy. The battle is waxing furious when the lawyer enters with the announcement that after confiscation by the Mexican G over n m e n t, there remains of the disputed fortune the small sum of one pound and two pence.

This play deals with the misadventures of a trio of college girl graduates, Rosamond Reid, Sally Lee Dixon, and Ann Annes-ly, played by Meredith B o r t, Virginia Hage-man, and Marguerite Konecny, who have ojx ned a tea room to make money for the college en- J.

In the meantime, the Reverend Archibald Perry, John Bennett, becomes highly incensed by Ann's refusal to cease her social service activities in the village. Complications multiply when the owner of the mansion, Dallas Thorne, George Crawford. who is supposed to be abroad, suddenly returns to find his exclusive abode turned into Tea Toper Tavern, but in a spirit of adventure he cnoceals his identity and accepts the position of hired man. The means used by Barry Reid. James Clark, Rosamond’s freshman brother, and Harriet Annesly, Doris Bryant, Ann’s young sister, in securing customers are both unique and amusing.

The tea-room adventure seems hoodooed from the beginning. First, the luckless tavern on its opening day gets quarantined for smallpox. when it is discovered that Tess, Winni-fred Carrithers, the kitchen maid, has this malady. Next, during the costume ball the tavern almost goes up in smoke. Only by means of a sliding panel is Dixie romantically rescued by the handsome owner of the house. Throughout these many thrilling adventures the sentimental policeman, Mike, Lyman Mitchell, more than earns his money by trying to keep his unruly charges in quarantine. Despite the indignant exit of the disappointed Gloria, accompanied by the charming little French maid, Celeste, Ruth Quass, the adventure is considered very successful by the trio, since each succeeds in “landing” an eligible husband. Moreover, John Sedgewick, Fred Longslaff, as a result of his perseverant wooing of the shrewd and caustic chaperon, Aunt Marion, Ruth Esther King, is assured a brighter outlook. Humor, thrills, and romance climaxed this play when the setting was transformed from the simple tavern scene to a gaily decorated costume b a 11-room. Doubtless no character created more hilarity than the self-important Barry and his tomboy-ish flapper pal, although all the characters w ere well chosen and sustained their respective roles excellently. v Ha enJJn Can£nCrawford 1 9 3 0"""""".......................................... mi Sixty-threcFOND RELATIONSHIPS “THE MUMMY AND THE MUMPS” “npHE Mummy and the Mumps,” a farce in three acts, was presented by the Washington class of 1931 in the Franklin auditorium, the twenty-fifth and twenty-sixth of October, 1928, under the direction of Miss Genevieve Dotson. The setting was Fenella, an exclusive school for girls where so many funny things happened that it would be difficult to narrate them all. The complications of this play began when Francis Briscoe, Alden Haldeman, while vis- iting his chum, William Laidlaw, Harold Ewing, who lived with his aunt, Miss Laidlaw, the dean of the school, Dorothy Kushner, saw blonde, blue-eyed reasons in Maude Mullen, Neva Brown, why he should extend his visit. In order to do this he claimed to be Sir Hector Fish, a professor who was expected to arrive but had been detained in New York underquarantine for the mumps. But Sir Hector, Maurice Dunlap, mixed things up a bit by escaping quarantine and getting himself expressed to Fenella in a box which was supposed to contain his famous mummy. His identity was discovered and kept secret by Anna Hampton. Opal Hodge, the cleverest girl in the school.

The hilarity was greatly promoted by Racker, Paul Krachmer, the inimitable man-of-all-work, who had three men’s work to do but didn’t do it. One farcical situation crowded closely upon the next when both Briskv and Sir Hector appeared disguised as Miss Laidlaw. Upon discovery of their dual impersonation they became co-workers, Briskv almost persuading Bill Laidlaw that he was none other than his school-day sweetheart, Sadie Maitland. Sir Hector Fish assuming the role of Mrs. Maitland, the mother. Upon the entrance of the real Miss Laidlaw, resulting in the three claims to the one personality, the audience was thrown into convulsions of laughter. The situation became still more uproarious when the keen-eyed re| rter and blustering sheriff thought they had penetrated this disguise only to be greeted by three claims to the Sir Hector Fish title. Not until after the true Sir Hector Fish asserted himself were three engagements novelly announced.

Against South Omaha, the Orange and Black gave as impressive a performance as has ever been witnessed in Cedar Rapids, but against Lincoln and Libbey they presented a mournful appearance, failing to function with any success whatsoever. Undoubtedly, the high lights of the season were the sparkling victories over Hast Des Moines and West Waterloo and the hard-fought tie with South Omaha. The Tigers started out the season by clashing with the Red and White Bulldogs of Dubuque. Although rated as the underdog, Dubuque showed surprising strength and drove hard in the closing minutes of the play to share the honors which rightfully went to the Orange and Black. Smiths long end-runs climaxed by an intercepted pass and a pretty 55 yard run were instrumental in bringing the Bengals their 6-6 tie.

The teams were forced to struggle through a heavy downpour and a sea of mud. As a result fumbles were numerous and many opportunities to score went unheeded. Spring Valley, displaying su|)eriority in blocking and tackling, put over the game's only counter late in the first quarter. Although defeated 6-0, the Bengals distinguished themselves by giving the Illinois “champs" their hardest game in many years. Exhibiting a marked improvement over their play of the previous week, the Tigers were able to battle a highly-touted giant team from South Omaha to a 6-6 tie. It was a struggle between champions from start to finish, with the Bengals using speed to offset their opponents' decided advantage in weight. Time and again the Tiger line charged to break up numerous Omaha plays before they had reached the line of scrimmage. That the Bengals outplayed their McCaifric Hiillip Ass't Winn Schxvartzcntruber l-ldcrkin •tltlllllllll 1930 iiMimiiiiu Scvcntv-thrccTHE Cc.uRR FOOTBALL opponents is attested to by their eight first down against South Omaha’s four. Fighting with desperate determination, the black-robed horde of Washington High moved with all the precision and smoothness of a well-coached aggregation to beat a mournful dirge on the back of a desperate Waterloo eleven. A record-breaking and enthusiastic crowd watched the impressive victory mount to a 13-0 score. Many of Waterloo's rather well executed “spinner” plays found a lurking menace in Davis, who began his drive for state-wide honors by breaking up many of their formations for heavy losses. After their sparkling victory of the previous week, the Tigers embarked on what proved to be a rather disasterous road-trip. In a clash with the powerful Libbey High team at Toledo, the Bengals failed to come up to their old time form and thus lost in a one-sided battle by a score of 26-0. Only once did the Tigers threaten when, in the opening minutes of play, line-smashes by Redel and Moore carrier! the ball deep into Libbey's territory. But after stopping this early drive, the Ohioans settled down and soon gained a substantial lead.

Displeased with their showing against Libbey and thirsting for revenge for last year's defeat, the Bengals needed no added incentive to make victory assured. Combining a hard-driving back field with their deceptive passing-attack, the Tigers Hashed to another well-earned victory. Des Moines only counter was scored when a momentary lapse of the Bengals allowed them to unleash their lightning cut-back plays. The final score stood at 14-6. Battling through what was probably a heart-breaking experience to each member of the Washington team, the Tigers bowed in mournful defeat to the rugged Red and White eleven of Iowa City. After working desperately to gain a substantial lead, the Tigers seemed content to sail nonchalantly along upon their 12-7 advantage. With but several seconds remaining. Moffitt heaved a long pass to Mathias who fell across the Tiger goal line with the winning counter. Iowa City kicked goal to raise the score to 14-12 as the game ended.

The Tigers brought to a close this season of ups and downs by clashing with the strong Ottumwa eleven. By scoring once in both the second and last quarters, Ottumwa earned a 13-0 lead which they doggedly protected. Wilson seemed to be the only man able to threaten the enemy's line.

The Bengals were able to win only five games of their entire schedule, three of these being non-conference games. However, it is only just to say that the Tigers were, on several occasions, the victims of “bad breaks.” After getting off to a beautiful start with early season victories over Central City, the Alumni, and her two conference rivals, Clinton and Grant, the Bengals presented hopes of becoming a strong contender for league honors.

It was in this game that Wilson cracked a small bone in his ankle, which was to keep him out of the remaining games. His loss was a severe blow, and one which could not easily be filled. From then on the Bengals fell into evil ways and proceeded to drop the remaining games on their schedule.

In the district tournament sponsored by Washington High and held in the new Coe Gym, the Tigers survived the first round by humbling Center Point, 35-17. The second round found the Tigers battling Iowa City, and although giving a good account of themselves they lost to the eventual winners of the tourney by a 16-10 score.

In winning two firsts and a third at the Drake Relays, second at the Stagg meet, and third in the state meet, the Bengals proved themselves superior to some of the nation's best sprint teams. The most consistent point winners throughout the season were Captain Proctor, Smith, Nehls, Wicken, Canfield, and Snyder. Opening the season at the Iowa Indoor Meet, the Tigers failed to secure many points and gave little indication of their real power. But they were only preparing for their outdoor cam| aign. The first outdoor meet found the Tigers at State Teachers’ College where they flashed to victory in three of the four relays in which they were entered. These points together with a fourth in the remaining relay served to win the meet and several trophies.

At Grinncll the Tigers were forced to run through a light rain, and although they continued their winning scores, the time was rather slow. The relay teams continued to gain speed and polish, and by now had no superior in the state. After successfully participating in the District Meet, the Tigers prepared for the State Meet. With several capable weight men, the Bengals would undoubtedly have captured the state title. At is was, they finished in third place, only three points behind the winner. Proctor proved himself to be Iowa’s best sprinter by stepping away from a fast field to run the hundred in 10:3. In order to bring to a close this brilliant season, the half-mile relay team journeyed to Chicago to participate in the Stagg National Prep Meet. For the first time in several years Washington again broke the Stagg scoring column by placing second. So, in a fitting manner, the Bengals brought to a close another satisfactory track season and gained honor for Washington.

Unfortunately, due t o exceptionally large classes and lack of facilities, volley ball is the only team game that is able to be played. Each class is divided into four teams composed of six or seven members. Each team has a captain and an assistant captain who have the duties of taking charge of their respective teams, of officiating at games, and in general of helping in the gymnasium. The teams play a round robin schedule. In addition to this, each class, every hour of the day. taken on the five day basis, has a league, such as the Animal League. Fish League, and the Automobile League. A school volley ball tournament, lasting several weeks, is held once a semester. Each class enters a team, selected according to the volunteer system, which meets a team of another class outside of school hours. The games are played on the single elimination style; and the competition between the various classes is very keen.

The team having the highest number of baskets to its credit is declared the winner. The high jump, relay races, free throws, and handstand are taken up occasionally to give variation to the events, and to bring out the particular adept ness of certain people, and to give personal contact games. The handstand and the stunt photographed in the two lower pictures are examples of the good that comes from varifying the course of events. These boys were found to have a particular knack for this work, and the result was a group of stunts which are able to hold their own against practically any competition. As the year is approaching spring, indoor baseball is the main event played. The four teams which com-p e t e d against each other for the first part of the semester in volley ball, basket shooting game, relay races, handstand, and free throws, are broken up, and the class divided into two teams, each with captain and assistant, to compete with each other the rest of the semester.

During the entire semester a check was made on each girl who had been ill for a week or more and a word of good cheer sent her.

The object of this organization is to promote social democracy among the boys of the school. Its members aim to uphold faithfully the motto: ‘‘Monstrare non monstrari.” The Council has accomplished much since the fall opening of school.

In addition, Boys Council serves as sponsors for boys assemblies and banquets, and spring tournaments in horseshoe and tennis. Active membership consists of fourteen boys, four chosen from each class in school at the fall semester, and two to l e added from sophomores entering in January. The honorary members consist of the toys' Counselor and Alumni members. The officers of the fall semester were: President.

Evans NATIONAL ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIP SOCIETY TN 1927 a new club was organized in VVash-ington High School, which had for its principles the fostering of high scholarship among secondary school athletes, the stimulation of a desire for balanced training, the elevation of the ideals of sportsmanship, and the development of more outstanding leaders in the high schools of the United States. This society is the National Athletic Scholarship Society of secondary schools and is a group for boy athletes, who for three consecutive semesters have a scholastic record equal to, or above the general average of the school, who have won a monogram in one of the major sports, or monograms in two minor sports, and who have exhibited the highest type of citizenship and sportsmanship. The National Athletic Scholarship Society is located in each of the forty-eight states em- bracing over three hundred high schools and three thousand high school boys. The emblem is a small gold charm combining the letters “A” and “S”, standing for athletics and scholarship, which is also the motto. At the present time there are nine members of Tiger Athletic teams in this honorary society and these are: Morris Abrams, John McCaffrie, Elmer Keith. Bob Meyers, Byron Evans, Jerald Greenblatt, Harry Nehls, Richard Buresh, and Dan Sianiis. Since its formation in 1927, athletic director, Leonard Paulu, has served as its critic. The officers for the year of 1929-30 are: President, John McCaffrie; Vice-President, Richard Buresh; Secretary, Harry Nehls; Treasurer, Jerald Greenblatt. 1930 Ninety-fiveTHE CEZDHFR - — ■—' ' "Sf First Row: C.

McGregor THE SCIENTIFIC SEARCHERS ITH the aim: “To promote a greater interest in science and to supplement the work of the high school science course,” the Scientific Searchers Club has made marked progress this year under the able direction of the critics, Miss Hilda Horn and Miss Lucile Reynolds. Among the outstanding events of the year was the general assembly sponsored by the club, in which George F. Morse, an eminent Boston zoologist, gave an interesting talk on “Wild Animals in Captivity.” The club was also fortunate in securing Mr. McCoy of the Security Laboratories to give a well illustrated talk on “Medicinal Herbs.” Many interesting and instructive talks were given by the members of the club, among which was Dresser Huntings report on “Comets” and William Whipples talk on Farady. Current topics were coupled with entertaining programs such as John Holbrook’s Magician Act. An experiment on the solubility of ammonia in the chemical laboratory, by Robert Vane and Dresser Hunting proved most instructive. The executive work was ably carried on by the officers who were as follows: Fall semester—Frank Waldron, President: Genevieve Robertson, Vice-President; Helen Thompson. Treasurer; and Mary Ann Hartl, Secretary; Spring semester—Genevieve Robertson, President ; Walter Staves, Vice-President; Dresser Hunting, Treasurer; Robert Vane, Secretary; and William Whipple, Pulse Reporter.

Sha!er LE CERCLE FRANCAIS T E Cerclc Fran ais, founded in 1927 at the request of fifty enthusiastic French students, aims to furnish an introduction to a deeper understanding of the character and achievements of France, as shown by its history, literature, art, institutions, and customs, and to offer an opportunity to use the language. The motto is “liberte, egalite, fra-ternite”; the flower is the fleur-de-lys. The colors are “bleu, blanc, et rouge.” During the semester the society has dramatized plays in French, made comparisons of France and America, reviewed books, and studied biographies of French writers and painters.

Pitcher BETTER GREGG ARTISTS HpO establish a foundation for a better un-derstanding of the business profession is the purpose of the better Gregg Artists. This society did not function during the fall semester but was reorganized in the spring semester. In order to have the constitution fit in well with the excular code, it was changed, thereby allowing those to join who had passing grades and who were taking advanced Shorthand and were interested in the commercial course. This will give the society a nucleus on which to continue from semester to semester. The officers for the semester are: President, Marjorie Voigt: Vice-President, Anita Fuehr; Secretary and Treasurer, Helen Hardwick; and the club's Pulse Reporter. Wilma Greene. For programs, the B. G. A.’s have at each meeting listened to reports on women who have made a success in the business world, have had a few musical numbers and skits, which in order to emphasize the importance of dignity in an office, presented the particular point at hand in a ridiculous fashion. To vary the routine a visit was made to an office for one meeting, and several picnic suppers in connection with the regular meetings were enjoyed in the Martha Washington Room. This organization is under the direction of the Misses Boyack, Chapman, and Chamber-lain. 19 3 0 One Hundred Onethe c=e:cdf=ifr w First Row: M. Ukh M. Konccnv V. Rosenberg E. Hovorka Second Row: M.

The motto is “There’s always room at the top of the ladder.” The flower of the society is the sweet pea and the colors are lavender and rose. During this year the members of the Erodelphian society have had many opportunities in which to show self-expression along musical, literary, and dramatic lines. At these meetings, the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, the programs have consisted of solo, duet, and quartet work, readings, short plays, and biographies. In addition to the regular programs they have enjoyed sister-ships given at the homes of members. The social committee also provided for a dance that was given in the Chamber of Commerce building, on the night of December 14, 1929. The special social event for the spring semester is the Erodelphian banquet. The society had for its officers during the fall semester: President, Ruth Mabon; Vice-President. Virginia Vane; Secretary. Edith Knox: Treasurer, Marjorie Voigt; and Pulse Reporter, Marguerite Konecny. Officers for the spring semester are: President.

Sweitzer HI-Y irvURING the past semester the Washing-ton Hi-Y has been making a study of many different vocations by hearing talks from business men representing different fields of work. Each man gave a summary of his respective business, telling about such things as his daily work, personal contacts gained through it, the present opportunities afforded, salaries offerer!, etc. The following men took part on the programs: Mr. Otto Ambrose, whose subject was “Advertising ; Mr. B. D. Silliman, “Law”; Mr. Edward Soboda Jr., “A Trip Through Europe”; Mr. Arthur Poe, “Traveling in Alaska and in Italy”; Mr. C. A. Beems, “What Goes on at Anamosa”; Mr. Edward Howe, “Insurance as a Vocation”; Mr. S. E. Coquillette, “Banking as a Vocation ; Mr. O. W. Latimer, “En- gineering as a Vocation”; Mr. Harry White, “Christian Work in Other Countries"; Mr. Hugh Orchard gave at the Mother and Son banquet, “A Message to Sons and Parents.” The plans for the coming semester will follow much the same course, taking up more vocations such as: Architecture, Medicine, General Business, Aviation, Loans and Mortgages. and some of the trades. The main idea of this plan is to help show each lx y the actual conditions and the opportunities of as many different vocations as possible, so as to help him in the selection of his own life work. The officers of this organization are: President, Byron Anderson: Secretary, James Clark; Treasurer. William Hepner. iiiiMiiitifiiiimi J || QmiiaiiiiitHi One Hundred ThreeON Till: STEPS AT THE "V HI-Y-ETTE GIRL RESERVES HTHE Hi-Y-Ette Girl Reserves are a part of an international organization, the Young Women’s Christian Association.

As a social event for the fall semester, a Christmas party was given just before the holidays. The scene of the affair was made festive by Christmas greens and candles. A happy feature of the evening was the distribution of gifts that were piled high under One Hundred Six a Christmas tree. For the spring social event the organization entertained its members at a dance. This year A. S. A. contributed fifty dollars to the Washington Educational Fund. A. S.

The idea originated with Jack Woerder-hoff, who will soon become a licensed pilot, and Milford Nelson. The colors of the club are silver and blue. The flower is the poppy. The adoption of an emblem consisting of small silver wings is l eing considered. Meetings are held bi-weekly in the Martha Washington Room and are attended by approximately fifteen members. The program usually consists of preparer! talks by two students on subjects relevant to aviation and an open forum brings out discussions of plane development. Plans are being perfected for an exhibition of motion picture slides displaying various types of airships. The club has sponsored an assembly, at which Dr. Hilton Ira Jones was the speaker. In April the society will entertain at its first social gathering.

Dramatis Personae: Two sweet young things gossiping about nothing in particular. "My dear! Cast your lamps over yon scene, ‘The Roman Campagne,’ by a Chicago artist. All that white stuff in the sky must be smoke from a gang war.” “Gee, that picture must have cost a lot. Oil paint's expensive and it’s plastered on thick.” “Pij e down! Here comes the critic with more cocoa. They ought to call this the ‘Cocoa Club.’— No thank you, I don’t believe I care for any. I still have some.” "Nor I either, thank you.” "Now that she’s gone, toss over a bun and sling some more baked beans.” "Gee, you’re a lot of bother. Sit down; I’ve got something exciting to tell you.” "Open up the sweeper and let’s have the dirt." “Miss Cock decided that two is a crowd in the Pulse room. Didn’t you hear about it?” “Aw, you had me all hot and bothered. I know all about that.—Wonder what Harriet Chord feels like now her big Byron is a bread winner at the Merchants National?” "Oh, plenty sad. Say, the way Marguerite Ko-necnv and Virginia Vane are practicing up on roller skating you’d think they were getting ready for an auto ride.” "Wonder why those girls over there arc looking so exasperated. They must be explaining another joke to Janet Murray.” "Speaking of the Organization Editor of the Pulse makes me think oi Charles Garwood. That boy must have a cast iron interior. He was digesting an eraser, handkerchief, some matches, and a Pulse, ‘ears’ and all, the other day.” (Lapse in conversation due to a little intense harmonizing of Crying for the Carolines, inspired by Marianne Dvorak’s fetching accompaniment.) "My dear! Day by day it’s getting more danger- ous in this school. Steel armour ought to be furnished to all Sophies parading in the halls.” "You’ve said a mouthful. Morgan Davis and Charles Topinka gave each other a couple of love pats when dashing through the hall and almost demolished two innocent bystanders.” "Who were the wronged ones?” "The Misses Swem and Lcvcn!” “Heavens! Instead of saying, ‘We haven’t cracked a book this week,’ we’ll soon be saying, ‘we haven’t cracked a rib’.” (Some more time out while an interesting debate on “Pupils should buy their own textbooks" is rendered, the negative winning with an overwhelming majority of one.) “Did you hear the plaintive strains coming from the typing room fifth hour yesterday?” "No, were the Cecilians practicing in there?” "Egad, m’ deah! We were waltzing the alphabet to the tunc of ‘The Stars and Stripes Forever,’ although we were expecting the end any minute. The old gray phonograph ain’t what it used to be, you know.” "Gee, what did you think of the Weathcrwax assembly? I bet everybody rushed home to look up his family tree.” "All except Harold Allison, who knows his noble lineage way back to the sixteenth century.” "Wonder why Miss Sutherland’s girls don’t play Kelly’s Tigers?” "The Tigers are probably afraid they might get beat!” (Tec hec.) "Poor Miss Toohy! She must be rushed to death with Miss Abbott’s book, the Cedar, and that second hour art class!” "I’ve heard about that class. Between Joe Baker, Eddie Ogden, and Fred Witousek, art must be going to the dogs.—Murder! It’s almost 7:30. Let’s go see if Frances Wcsterfield can go to the Paramount with us.” (Rapid exit.)

Here beside it is the Greene Square With the gaunt, unloaded cannon And the gorgeous flowers in summer, By the tracks of great Northwestern. Long ago a sturdy hero Went to school, a lowly sophomore, Went to school to learn the Latin, Math and science—other studies; Here he met the great chief, Hallman, Leader over all the students; Here he flunked and learned things over Till his teachers went stark crazy. But he signed up soon for fieldwork And through that he met successes. On the gridiron knocked them senseless Making touchdowns for his own school; In the cage, he made the baskets, Made the 'ponents bite the hardwood. You shall hear how our young hero Graduated in his grey gown; Finally grabbed his earned diploma For his bright athletic passes; How he sought to make a living Working hard each crowded moment. Oft he thinks of his old high school, Fondly thinks of his old high school, Where he went long moons ago. Years have passed since our young hero Graduated in his grey gown; Fondly returned and was astounded To behold the same old schoolhouse Still in use by lusty students. Still beside the great Northwestern. TO OUR SCHOOLMATES STONE walls do not a prison make Yet in this school it seems to us, The iron bars are all that lack To make of it an incubus.

One Hundred Thirteenthe: cedrr THE PUPILS AND THE PRINCIPAL With Apologies to Lewis Carroll Prelude THE tracks were laid out two by two, The smoke and dust flew high, The freight trains howled and roared and shrieked As they did rumble by— And this was odd because there was A senior high school nigh. A junior and a sophomore were walking by the land: They wept like anything to see The tracks so close at hand. “If these were only cleared away,” They said, “It would be grand'." “If seven gangs of section men Worked on them for a year, Do you suppose," the sophomore said, “That they could get them clear?" “I doubt it," said the junior, And shed a bitter tear. Poem Proper Twere pupils and the principal: In conference were they. He’d called them in and sent them out For well nigh many a day. The questions flew so thick and fast— What did he find to say? “The time has come," wise Hallman said, “To talk of many things: Of grades—and books—and ’se mb lies— Of absences—and flings— And whether sophies are so dumb— And seniors should have rings.” And as the roll was called, each found His chance to now inquire What made Miss Wilson nag them so. And why did Estby fire Such quizzes at them as made life Too miserable and dire. “I weep for you,” kind Hallman said; “I deeply sympathize.” With sobs and tears he answered then The problems of their lives, Holding his pocket-handkerchief Before his streaming eyes. “O Pupils," said the principal, “The conference is not done. There's time for several questions yet." But questions came there none— And this was scarcely odd, because He’d answered every one. LIFE IN WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL (A Take-off from Pope’s “Rape of the Lock”) CLOSE by those tracks, forever full of trains, Where the Rock Island with pride puffs out its painful strains, There stands a structure of majestic frame Which from our first President takes its name. Here Deatner’s apostles oft the fall predict Of students whose vocations are not picked. Here thou, great Hallman! :whom all teachers obey, Doth sometimes speeches make both night and day, Hither the “shebas" and the “sheiks” do traipse To question, “Do our anscestors spring from apes?” In various ways the destructive hours they passed; Who wrote the note, or used the “pony” last; One speaks the idiocy of a six-hour day; And one the futility of “conferences" does betray; A third the pleasures of graduation does tell; How it takes the “shekels” to toll the final bell. One Hundred Fourteen ItllllliaiUllltlMMM 1930 intiiii1 3 One Hundred FifteenTRY THESE ON YOUR PIANO (Tunc: “Auld Lang Sync”) Should dear old high school be forgot, And never brought to mind? It’s been beside the railroad tracks Since eighteen seventy-nine. (Tunc: "Stand Up, Stand Up”) BANKER’S HYMN ON TUESDAYS Dig up, dig up, for banking, Ye pupils of our High; The time is ripe for saving, You must not pass it by. (Tunc: "There Little Girl”) Hush, little High School, Don’t you cry; You’ll be an oil station By and by. (Tunc: “Flow Gently, Sweet Alton”) Chug softly, dear engines, along thy straight tracks; Chug softly, I’ll tell thee thy whistling distracts; Our classes are spoiled by thy murderous screams, Chug softly, dear engines, disturb not our dreams. (Tunc: "When You and 1 Were Young, Maggie”) wandered today to the High, Maggie, The place where we went to school, In the smoke of the trains that passed by, Maggie, Twenty times a day as a rule. The fine antique clock’s in the hall, Maggie, Erratic as ever of yore; It still tells the time for them all, Maggie, A minute behind or before. The bulletin board now is gone, Maggie, Radio has taken its place, I heard that the classes are as long, Maggie, And I looked in the filled trophy case. The lockers still rattle and bang, Maggie, The grooves in the stairs are the same; But the pupils use new fangled slang, Maggie, Beside which our wild terms sound tame. The whole air has changed in the High, Maggie, And most of the things aren’t the same; 1 Ye remember old friends with a sigh, Maggie, And ones who have now come to fame. POOR RICHARD IN 1980 Instead of, "Fools make feasts and wise men cat them,” Poor Richard in 1930 would say, "Teachers make tests and pupils take them.” "Necessity is the mother of bluffing.” "It’s a long month that has no assembly.” "Time and school bells wait for no lad.” “Many arc cold, but few are frozen.” “Never say ‘Flunk!’” “A Senior and his knowledge arc soon parted.” “Senior is as Senior studies.” "Little tests fell great pupils.” “A verb in the head is worth two in the book.” "Studying is the best policy.” "One I) is worth two F’s.” “It’s hard for an empty head to get the drift.” “Wear your raincoats when the sun shines.” “Cram deep while sluggards sleep.” WHAT IF— Otto Sikora would really graduate? Harold Allison had an inferiority complex? Bill Hepner would wear long pants? Marjorie Yoigt wasn't a good friend of Mr. Edgar Clark couldn't sing? Miller’s?

Hut what she lacked was fust the spice— The tangy, little taste, That necessary something Without which we are waste. How if the pretty, willful child Had had this in her lot, She would have proved magnetic, too, And won Sir Lancelot. Our modern maids would never leave The contest till the end. And though they lost it—have no fear— They’d find another friend! ADVICE Dear Editor: There is a pest Ho one can. The demon shrieks Which must be driven from this school. And drives us mad.

(My books, I fear, I shall have to pawn.) In library, three-hundred, two-nineteen, Diabolical splinters are to be seen; Four-hundred, one-hundred, everywhere, Fiendish, grasping, ready to tear. Service-weight or bare-leg style, Fast they join the ragged pile. "Boards” of education drive me mad, For stocking runs are not the fad. Oh, won’t the powers take pity on me And plane our furniture splinter-free? A TRUE SIGN OF SPRING Have you felt a restless feelin’ ’Bout the last two weeks gone by? Bet you have, so let me tell you— You’re not alone, for so have I. That feelin’! You can’t describe it, Or the thrill it’s bound to bring, But just this, I’m willin’ to wager— It’s the first real sign of Spring. When you have to sit and study. And you really want to sing Or dance, or play tike a kid again— That’s the first real sign of Spring. —.......................................................lllllllltll 0 0 O'""..........................

When Mr. Estby was asked by David McGregor whether he would rather be an insect or a fish, that honorable teacher replied that he didn’t care just so he wasn’t Scotch. Wendell Delzell, having been highly elated because he had received a note from Helen I-arimer was doomed to be disappointed upon opening it and finding “April Fool” written across the jxage. A FAMOUS SPEECH REVISED Friends, students, classmates, lend me your ears, I come to razz our building not to praise it. The faults it holds will live after it, The good will fall among the ruins, So let it be with this structure. The board of education Hath told you it is all right; If it is so we fail to find it. I speak not to disparage what they say, But here I am to speak what I do know. You all have sat in class endeavoring to concentrate, And what noises haven't you heardf Bear with me. My heart is set on a new building Far away from these fatal tracks. CRAMMING Columbus discovered the ocean In fourteen ninety-two; A polygon’s a dead parrot Or a triangle cut in two.

He worked unmindful of the rhythmic Knox of a Hutu war in the adjacent Aker, where a Stout Gardner Swell to Pyle a Chord of Wood for the Fahl fires when the Robbins would be forced south by the Frost. The painter wielded the Brown Handel of his Campbell-hair brush briskly, conscious of the wild beauty of the W ods that lay at his Wright. No Lyons lutked in that Wood, Bolt the Greedy Fnx, the cautious Coon, and Hawks, Kehne of eve and strong of Wing, could be seen there every day. The painter realized that he never Wood be able to capture that panorama on canvas. In Vane he dreamed of going abroad, as all artists of Merritt do some Day, before he was Overley Auld; at least before he lost his Brown Currells and became a Baldwin, he would go abroad. He Wood travel ir. a Black Buss, if his Owen F»rd Stahld. The trip Wood take him Miles; Farr over Gray Hill and Lowe Green Dale, over the Baldridges that barred him from the Beach where one could Charter pass-sage on the Steele Briggs that lay at their Moore-ings, Bucking the Broadwater, while taking on Colby the ton. “By Schlesselman!" muttered the Painter happily thinking not of Watland he would visit—whether Britton, Ireland or the territory of the Romans—but Howe, on the voyage, he would have time to Reed the Longest Book, to Knapp on the Lee-Ward deck, to Winn the acquaintance with the Goodfellow at the Helm, a Hale and Hearty Sailor of the Crew; to Eaton delicacies prepared by the Cook and the Baker, or, probably, to drink Lemenade and beg a Bishop or a Deacon to say a Blessing for his departing soul. This last thought bothered him, but at last he came to the conclusion that he would rather stay Safely home without Fuehr than run that Risk. He preferred dry Pitts with Lillies and Roses to watery Graves. Thus the crisis in this painter's life came and passed, while he was painting a house, from ground to Gable, outside Bever Park’s Gates. BELIEVE IT OR NOT Washington High School was not formerly a prison. There arc 55 teachers in Washington Miss Swem has not joined the “six-footers.” The hall has been known to sag eight feet under full pressure. Carr Lavell has not “won the hearts of four-fifths of the girls.” There arc 133 different textbooks used in Cedar Rapids schools. Miss Fordyce was Washington’s first physical t mining director. Dave Elderkin’s middle name is Mac Duff. Mr. Frederick has been known to go three minutes and thirteen seconds without talking. (Courtesy of the Bulova Watch Co.) Washington land and equipment is valued at $399,850. There is a Cedar room with typewriter and files. About 500 tons of coal arc used annually at Washington. Aud Ivins has more freckles than anyobdy this side of Fairfax. The swagger of Philip Yothers is a real accomplishment. There are 709 lockers in Washington. W. H. Taft once addressed the Washington graduating seniors. Each Washington pupil goes to school 4,039,200 seconds a year. Charles Garwood does not entertain girl friends in the Pulse room.
