This class will now go forth, some to college others into the larger world Where they will immediately take up life's burdens. In either event they must at some time recall and long for their High School days and will turn to this book to find a t-rue and interesting record of the joys and "scrapes" of those youthful days. Then will the object of this hook be acconiplished. EDITOR. n -lr 114 51, AR vwg 11 1 Y ,ww '1"f 1 1, ,,,,,,, V.,,, X, 4 4x ,.. f 1 f 1 Wa .amlsxfiv f -'Gmini .lr 'Sis ,,,',,,' " u .

H. S. 'VVay back in the "eighties" Georgetown supported a school, which was known as the George- town Seminary. That was the school our fathers, mothers a11d, perhaps, grandfatliers and grand- mothers, attended. Many are the exciting, yet ever interesting tales that they relate of those school days. In a few years school was held in the new grade building, and continued to be held here for several years. As the years passed by and the enrollment increased, new teachers, new courses, and finally a new building were necessary. Arrangements were thereby made for a new building which, when erected, would be no longer Georgetown High School, but rather Georgetown Township High School. During the 'erection of the present school building, school was held in the old Methodist church, and many are tl1e good times enjoyed by the stu- dents While attending school there. Finally, in February, 1915, the new building was completed and the student body moved into the handsome new structure. More ample room called for more courses and new teachers, and accordingly tl1e following fall of 1915 new courses were added, and new teach-ers supplied. In the year 1915-'16, teachers of History, Ger- man, English and Commercial courses were added, making our faculty number eight, with Mr. Rees as principal. Mr. Rees has faithfully served as princi- pal for a number of years, and while other members of the faculty appear and disappear, he remains with us. . The year 1917-'18 brought the necessity of three more new instructors, since our History teacher, and one of our English teachers could not be with us again. The addition of an X-Ray machine to the Physics department has made our equipment more complete, and this year Domestic Science and Man- ual Training were introduced for the first. time in G. H. S. history. The aim of our school is to stand for all that is right, noble and uplifting, and to fit our young men and women socially for the life upon which they will enter. With the following board members: Dr. Fletcher, president, D. H. Bowen, A. W. Haworth, G. W. Satterfield, James L. White, Will McMahon, and Frank Morris, combined with our splendid fac- ulty of eight members, we cannot help but send our graduates forth possessing a Wider and nobler out- look on life, and better equipped for joyous and ser- viceable living.

Life's no longer if we hurry." Senior Class President 1918. "Red" is our athletic lion. Track, football, and basketball all have their share. He is particularly adverse to calling class meetings. As for fun, he is like an alarm clock, hard to set going, but when he is once started doesn't stop. He has specialized in English CD Athletic Editor "Khaki and Blue." MARY A. BUBNIS "I probably never shall grow up." Although the youngest member of our class, she does not allow this to prevent her from acquiring her share of "Senior dignity." The sunniest of dispositions, for we have never known her to be really angry. A certain shy- ness and reserve characterize her. EARL E. RICHARDS "Richards" "And e'en though vanquished, he could argue still." Athletic Editor "Khaki and Blue." Football and Track. Who will take your place in hurdles? Has also proved his worth as a "router" on the side line. He travels in a Ford limousine. Never known to swerve from a decision. His necessary credits were made by the end of the first semester and he spent the last waiting patiently for commencement week. ALTA COURTER "Thy voice is sweet as if it took its music from thy face." She is the thrush of G. H. S. Is quiet and thoughtful, but when excited, how her eyes do sparkle! Her sim- plicity and unaffectedness make her as lovable in the class-room as on the stage. Nursing is one of her dreams. J KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 I . HARRY L. SMITH "Micky" "Another of his fashion, they have not, to lead i , their business." Vice-President of Senior Class. Business manager "Khaki and Blue." Captain of football team 1917-1918. One of our "boy-singers." His debates are always con- vincing 'and who in the Senior Class does not know his, "I move we adjourn." A member of the class for twelve years. JUNE ELIZABETH ROESCH "Izzy" "Of wit she has an abunclanceg Of 'cases' she has many." Editor-in-Chief "Khaki and Blue." G. H. S. News Staff. Charter member G. E. M. Danville High School claimed her as a Freshman. She is one of those lucky people who get good grades without much study. We wonder what a play would be without "Izzy.", How she does dance, play, and sing! All her work is marked by that desirable quality, "pep." I -A MARY ELIZABETH JONES "Betty" "Cupid hath 'not in all his quiverous choice, An arrow for the heart like a sweet voice." Business Manager "Khaki and Blue." G. H. S. News StaH. Charter member G. E. M. Guard on Senior Girls' Basketball Team. We wonder how one so tiny can guard so efficiently. High School pianist. When she sits before a piano she seems to charm it, so sweetly do the keys respond to her touch. u A star in foreign language. RICHARD A. GRAVES. I "Dick" "Others know his worth as well as he." He has not only been out for track each year in High School, but he has Won several medals and has an inter- est in two relay pennants. He is one of our farmer boys, but is seen guiding a Ford more often than a plow. Rather reserved, but very much worth knowing. 9 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 VIRGINIA COGGESHALL TAYLOR "Jimmy" "To know her is to love her."' Our Calendar. Everyb0dy's friend, but few know her in- timately. However, from these we know of her unex- pected sayings which always bring forth laughter. Prac- tical and usually practicing the theory that it is better to keep to yourself your thoughts of others. We carry with us already a vision of Virginia in her nurse's costume. MILDRED FLETCHER "Dutch" "Her ways are all of happiness and all her paths are fun." For a good frolic, go to Mi1dred's. She carried through with great success her characterization of "Tilly" in our Junior Play. We wonder why she has such an ardent sympathy for the Junior Class. If you can't find Mil- dred call up Moses'. She has traveled with the class for the entire twelve years. VEVA GWENDOLYN CARTER "Carter" "A laugh is worth a thousand tears in any market." Charter member G. E. M. Forward on Senior Girls' Bas- ketball Team. How can she make all those baskets? In- terested in speaking and is always on hand for chorus or an operetta work. Is never too busy for a good time. The only girl in High School who has had two years' Agri- culture. MARGARET M. TATE. "Tate" "She tells you flatly what her mind is." Guard on Senior Girls' Basketball Team. Always in for a good time and is not afraid of work. Is a special lover of winter sports. Equally good in tennis. She will proba- bly walk in the pedagogic path. KHAKI ANDB LUE, '18 THOMAS LEWIS "Tom" "Sweet are the slwrnbers of a righteous man." Don't judge his mental ability by the above quotation. Are you in need of knowledge concerning Civics? Ask Tom. We believe he knows all about it. Rather fond of girls, especially if there is anything to eat. Football and Bas- ketball are other "hobbies" President of our class, 1916- 1917. He has traveled with the class for twelve years. HAZEL RAMONA SCHECTER "Sheck" "Then she will talk, Ye Gods-how she will talk!" 'Alumni Editor "Khaki and Blue." G. H. S. News Staff. Never known to be in a safe medium. She is either vis- iting the heavens or bumping the earth with a thud. A lovely hostess and we consider ourselves lucky to be in- vited to take a trip to the country. HARLEY STARK "Let us do, or let ns die." Editor-in-Chief of our book. A devotee of basketball. Athletic Editor of G. H. S. News Staff. Graduates with eighteen credits. Who has not had an argument with him? He is interested in extemporaneous speaking. He has a fine sense of humor. He has been with the class the twelve years. FLORENCE B. MOORE "Flo" "Witty to talk with, pretty to walk with, and nice to think upon." G. H. S. News Staff. Charter member G. E. M. Center on Girls' Basketball Team. As a center she is always there and never fails to get the ball. One of our "song birds." A pilgrim on the path of knowledge with our class for twelve years. If the future may be judged by the past we fear that she will have to resort to Portia's plan of choosing a husband by gold, silver, and bronze caskets. 2 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 EUGENIA R. SELBY "Ge1I.e"' ."0n books wherein to rede I me delyghtf' Literary Editor "Khaki and Blue." G. H. S. News Staff. Charter member of G. E. M. Came from Danville in the Sophomore year. Athene was very generous to her, as she gave her portion of English. What quotation does she not know? In outside reading she has' long passed beyond the High School Library. At times very quiet, but so is dynamite, so we handle with care. MARIAN SNAPP "Snap" "And if she will, she will, and that's the end of it." Art Editor of "Our Book." G. H. S. News Staff. For- ward on Senior Girls' Basketball team. What pretty bas- kets she makes! If we could judge by her eyes we would think her name well suited, but her tongue refuses to live up to its name. History is her forte. MELBA SHEPLER "Shep" "Those who are most deserving need not the ' praise of others." Literary Editor of "Khaki and Blue." Member of G. H. S. News Staff. Charter member of G. E. M. A good all-round student. History and Physics are mere pastimes to her. She is interested in all school affairs, especially athletics. Has been with the "bunch" from the primer grade. - GLADYS IONA MORRIS "Gladdie." "A light heart lives long." "Khaki and Blue" Alumni Editor. G. H. S. News Staff. Charter member of G. E. M. Our best alto singer. En- joys writing letters more than studying lessons. Seems to be continually in hot water, but we certainly do enjoy her music. She has traveled the rough and rugged Road of Knowledge with our class twelve years. -----H-- ,. KAKI AND BLUE, '18 - - CHARLES DUNIVAN "Chuck" "A fine boy but he needs to grow up a bit." Has been out for Basketball two years, and track, one. Is noted for whistling "Pretty Baby." He is just beginning to realize that he must .lay-aside childish things and grow up. I-Ie never looks dull or sleepy, but always wide awake and cheerful. Takes a joke as well as he gives one. MAUDE S. JENKINS "Jenks" "Dignity and 'reserve are two of the graces she possesses." Our Class Treasurer. She thinks she is quite a rogue, but we beg to disagree. It takes more than mischief to make a rogue. Always known to get good grades. Beware of o'er-stepping the limits of patience, for we know of a temper beyond them. IZEL A. ENSLEY "To have a friend is to be one." She comes to us from Humrick. She must have been taught that children should be seen but not heard. The few opinions which she ventures are very much Worth while. She is an earnest student and stores away knowl- edge for future use, in her chosen profession, teaching. ARTHUR F. ESTES "Art" "What a pretty little baby he mast have been!" Steady, sure, and conscientious. One of the few members of our class who had the distinction, as a Sophomore, of appearing daily on the stage. He has always been more interested in the farm than in High School activities, so we foresee the life of a successful farmer. 23 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 ALICE MARY HAWKINS "From her Zips smooth, elocution flows." She brings two years' credits from a Chicago High School, where she was interested in gym work and received her first experience in public speaking. She came to us this year from Vermilion Academy, where she gained honors in public speaking. Living in the country has prevented her from taking an active part in outside affairs. HENRY CANADAY ELISE C. ROSSIGNOL "A violet by a mossy stone Half hidden from the eye." Her soft accent proclaims her as hailing from the East. Unfortunately for us we have not had any of tho e pre- cious after school chats with her, for she lives at Olivet and must hasten to the car. We have discovered that she has a very sweet voice and we also enjoy her readings. We defy anyone with the power of foresight to tell us correctly what Elise will next say. ' "Goggles" "Oh, I would be a soldier boy, Just hear me beat my drum." . Art Editor "Khaki and Blue." He is full of fun and therefore is a welcome guest at a picnic or a roast. He has always been interested in electrical matters. Casting about for something to do in the wearisome Christmas vacation, he strayed from the fold of knowledge to the recruiting station. Nor have we seen him since he went to J eiferson Barracks. He is now in Texas. .

J N W, N! Senior Class History ORE history has been made in the last four years than in any other quarter of a century. The first thing that comes to the mind is the great World War now in progressg but let us pause for the moment in the whirl of this , busy world and look back upon the past record of the Class of 1918. In other words, let us consider for a moment that class's history: - Four years ago, in the fall of 1914, a band of about forty young and verdant people entered upon their career in G. H. S. as Freshmen. The first glance at that group of young people concisely said that some day they would accomplish wonderful things, and be the greatest and best class that ever was gradu- ated from G. H. S. The Class of 1918 organized in its Freshmen year and elected the now absent Ivan Pyle as president. However young and unsophisticated we may have seemed, we nevertheless entered the social whirl and were foremost in exercising the policy of making things go. A party was enjoyed at the home of Maude J enkinsg the class attending in a body, and going by way of hayracks. This was the most important event of the year, but others of a like nature followed. We furnished athletes for football, basketball, and track, and a general summary shows that we were altogether a class of much renown that year. In the fall of 1915, we again organized-this time as Sopho- mores. Morris Smith was the chosen member who was voted President of the class. Again we were active in social affairs, and a delightful Hallowe'en party was given at the home of Mildred Fletcher. In this year we gained the name of being the liveliest class in school, and throughout the remaining two years we have lived up to that reputation. We furnished part of the cast of "Windmills of Holland," a Dutch operetta, directed by Mr. Stronks, and aside from ably supporting the football, basketball and track team again, we supplied most of the Senior boys with girls. The triangular debate between Chrisman, Georgetown and Sidell was participated in by two of our Sopho- more fellows: Harry Smith and George Strader. It is a well known fact that if one ever has a chance to reveal his talents, it is in his Junior year. That year we were said to have been the favorite class in school. Besides taking an active part in athletics and furnishing most of the cast for the Operetta, "Polished Pebbles," we gave "The Kingdom of Heart's Content" as our Junior play. Then came our banquet. Although the eats question is not the best topic to discuss openly before a Senior, we did succeed in showing everyone present a good time. Our class President for the year was Tom Lewis, and he kept us in the straight and narrow path throughout the entire year. In the fall of 1917 we started the year as high and mighty Seniors. We chose from our assemblage the brilliant-headed Albert Gustafson to lead us into paths of peace. With Albert as president, and such a competent adviser, the year held for us great possibilities and much hope. We were a class of business that year, for we immediately began to do things. We supported the football squad and made up most of the basketball team, and while we were so busily engaged in ath- letics, we still had time for mingling in the social whirl. we enjoyed a party at the home of Maude Jenkins, and several other similar events were given during the year. Our most important undertaking was our Annual. One class meeting was held on top of the other until finally a force of officers was elected which represented our staff. We then left it to them- to fret, worry, and lose sleep over the affair. Few will doubt but that we are the greatest class that has ever graduated. But should one argue otherwise silence him with these few facts: navy uuuu, 10 We have been the strongest support of the honor roll. Only one alumnus on record has graduated with as many credits as Harley Starks. Harry Smith is the best extemporaneous speaker in school. Albert Gustafson is not only the best athlete in school, but has broken more records than any one athlete on record. We are the first class to issue an Annual. That fact alone proclaims our greatness. We have given Tony Gandy, Henry Canaday, Ivan Pyle, and Ray Dornblaser to the service of Uncle Sam. Those who know, say we can well boast of hav- ing the prettiest girls in school. Four years agohwe numbered forty-five, now we are twenty-seven, but judging from quality rather than from quantity, we can still be called the greatest class on record. J. ELIZABETH ROESCH.

DEAR Miss Moons: I was immensely pleased when I heard that you had re- signed at U. of I. and accepted a position as head of the English department in your Alma Mater. Of course you have not forgotten our G. H. S. Class of '18. I have the most newsy news about them! Melba spent the Fourth with me. You know she has been teaching mathematics in the Alton Boarding School, New York. I was not expecting her and had arisen early Monday morning to do my washing. Scarcely had I started when I received a belated telegram say- ing she would arrive at noon. I rushed back to my wash-tub. What was my surprise upon beholding in the steam the form of "Chuck." His girlish, re- morseful face looked out from between iron bars. My horror was changed to giggles when I beheld "Art" and "Veva" per- forming their famous tight rope stunt before a large Grape Creek audience. My heart was moved with compassion to see poor "Scheck" with her four dirty-faced little boys clinging to her mud-drabbled skirt. Our cherished "Mickey" was sitting on the corner of Main and Van Buren playing his accordion and holding out his tin cup for pennies. "Jinny" was a pompous fat lady with a diamond ring and a pet chicken. The voice of demented "Izzy" came in mufiied screams from behind locked doors, "Bonney Jolly Jazzers, how art thou fallen!" Above a brilliant riding habit appeared the grinning face of Gladdie, the bareback rider. Fatherly "Dick" was on the floor building erector Fords for little Dick. Mildred, her head encased in a large red handkerchief, appeared trundling a banana cart. "Red" was running on a slippery track. He won. I rushed to con- gratulate him. As his hand grasped mine I awakened to find myself standing over a tub of cold water, holding in my hand a bar of slippery soap. A sensible thing for a practical house- keeper to be doing, wasn't it? To return to Melba. She attended the annual alumni ban- quet at Georgetown last month. There she learned about most of our classmates. Harry Smith is the influential congressman from Illinois, who is always wanting to adjourn before time. Doesn't that sound natural? Marian Snapp is a designer in New York for the "Vogue," Greater than Lady Duff-Gordon in her day. She has always had an inclination toward this work and is very successful. Arthur is a capable government ranchman in Arizona. He is enjoying experiences as thrilling as those in "Riding the Rim." Maude Jenkins, who has been doing a noble part in Y. W. C. A. work, was married last Christmas to a former army officer. Need I give his name? Melba had not heard of Alta so I quietly slipped into the house and put a record on the Edison. Alta's clear, sweet voice thrilled through the night. She has won great success in Grand Opera. Harley Starks who, as you know, was recently appointed ambassador to France, attended the banquet. He was on his way to Washington and will sail next month. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 Alice Hawkins teaches public speaking in the Austin High School, Chicago. I visited her last winter and found that she was doing splendid work. Henry Canaday is still lamping sights in the signal corps and inventing impossible things. He is a second Edison. Mildred Fletcher was kept busy after her college work as Treasurer of the National Christian Endeavor Societyg but is now happily married to a prominent athletic star. ' P Thomas Lewis, greatly fatigued after the publication of his latest book, "Are the Destinies of Man Preordained?" has gone to the Kyfhauscr Mountains to get a good sleep. Elise Rossignol has seen very little of America in the last few years. But all the world has heard of the great success of the operas given by her for reconstruction funds. Elizabeth Roesch is now starring in her masterpiece, "The Dance of Joy." Melba saw her in New York and says that she dances with the same airy grace as she once did on the gym- nasium iioor. Charles Dunivan is a member of the inter-state basketball team. He attended the banquet and surprised everyone by his grown-up appearance. Earl Richards has never strayed from the home fold. He is a progressive farmer on the home place. He raises wonderful crops and all his farm machinery is run with Ford motors. Virginia Taylor is still nursing. She promises to be as ca- pable and as well loved as Florence Nightingale. She has been in Europe since 1920, but expects to return next year. Albert Gustafson is athletic manager at Princeton Univer- sity. He has gained fame by opposing outside reading and refer- ence work for credit in athletics. Gladys Morris majored in Spanish at college and received an appointment as Dean of a. South American college. She sent a very interesting letter, describing her work, to be read at the banquet. Richard Graves is State Railroad Inspector of Illinois. The little Dick of my wash-tub vision is a real Dick. Gwendolyn Carter is that big pompous lady who drives her own car and manages her own farm without the help of a "mere man." Mary Bubnis, because of her love for eating and her love of Chicago, is teaching Domestic Science in Austin High, the same school in which Alice teaches. Hazel Schecter is the loving wife of the professor of "Math" at Columbia University. She now has no awe of, mathematics and is the same "Sheck" of High School days. Margaret Tate teaches during the winter, and following her usual custom of traveling in the summer, is now in the Rocky Mountains. 4 Izel Ensley is principal of a Montessori school in Chicago. She loves her work and is very successful. Florence Moore, as you may know, is happily married. She lives in that most desirable place, the country. ' Mary Elizabeth Jones is doing Chautauqua work with the Lincoln Chautauqua. Her sweet voice and lovely face have thrilled many an admiring audience. Well, that completes ,the list and must also complete my let- ter, for Little Ruth has just awakened and wants to "go walk- ing." , With love, EUGENIA. KHAKI AND BLUE, We Seniors Oh! here's to the class of nineteen-eighteen, A jolly good bunch as you always have seen, We have a big time and believe in our fun, But sometimes we start before work is done. There's "Sheck," so gay, so fair and so tall, Who says, "Give me 'Shrimp' or no one at all, And Florence, although single just now, We hear is soon to take that vow, Which says if hearts are good and true, They should be made into one from two. "Betty," the lass, has the men at her will, But most of her time she gives to "Bill," Marian's brown eyes are cast far away ' To look for him who'll return some day. Eugenia, the book-lover, now comes next, She's quite a shy maid and so easily vexed. Now Alta follows with that clear, sweet voice, Of the men they say she makes not her choice. And then Virginia, "I hate men," says she, But wait till she reaches Chicago, Oh me! Now Melba and Gladys you know very well, Ridgefarm's history they sure can tell. Mary and Izel have a quiet way, They study and learn and are here each day. Henry's our soldier, of him we're full proud, He is clever and witty, but never is loud. Veva, with Mildred, you always can see, She says she likes good company. Alice is quiet, reserved, and small, She came from "Peanut" to us last fall. Emancipated Harry comes next in line, Very business-like, yet likes a good time. Margaret, our dear, is a very good sport, Of skating she's fond, but cares not to court. Now, Red, you know, is the best of athletes, He has carried off honors in many big meets. "This war is cruel," pouted Maud one day, "It has taken my Lester so far away." And Harley, oh my, he can't be convinced, He forms his opinions and won't budge an inch. Of Arthur and "Chuck" I can't think a thing, But each, I'm sure, has a girl on the string. Earl has a Ford which brings him much fame, And "Dick' has a car, the make is the same. Elise is talented, also loving and forgiving, And Izzy gets all of the joy out of living. Tom is clever, quiet, and deep, We advise that he go to the Alps for a sleep. Now this is the class that pushes things through, For it is we who originated "Khaki and Blue." J. ELIZABETH Rozscn. !

We entered upon our new life with plenty of "pep" and ability to make our class a success. At first, we were rather bashful and did not speak except when we were spoken to, for the prevailing opinion seemed to be that all Freshmen were green. After watching the other pupils in their work, we soon became accustomed to the routine of High School life. We had been in school about three months when we. elected our president. "Smokie" seemed to be the favorite. When the time came for each class to be represented by a speaker at the Junior-Senior banquet, "Snookie" did his part. He stood up and began his speech, and all wondered whence the sound was coming. Finally, he was located, and everyone became interested. At the end the ap- plause that "Smokie" received was lit for a recruiting officer. After the banquet came the varied activities of the commence- ment season. Thus our Freshmen year ended. The opening of the Sophomore year found our number re- duced to thirty. We settled more diligently into our work this year, for we knew that each moment would count, until we reached that goal toward which we were striving. We were a remarkable class: Leota and Carrie were two of the most brilliant students in High School, "Snookie" was the smallest, and Russell was the largest boy in captivity. Our president this year came to be none other than Johnny Hanson. He was an excellent executive, but not anxious to let his voice be heard in public speeches. Our class was well represented in athletics this year, Russell Clipson, Herschel Smith, Carl Hires starring in footballg John Hanson and Ivan Burch, in basketball. With the coming of spring, the boys left the fold and went to the agricultural field to help in the raising and tending of crops. Our class is worthy of the name "patriotic," for we have given to the service of Uncle Sam more students than any other class in the High School-Cloyd Hiberly, Carter Dornblaser, Willie Clayton, and Roscoe Brooks. Juniors, Jolly Juniors, we have reached that Ivan rules only eighteen of us in class meeting. in numbers, but strong in spirit and ambition, England, Ray stage at last. We are weak and only the Seniors can now call us under-classmen. This year we must stage the best Junior play Georgetown has ever seen and then must entertain the Seniors most royally. It will soon be time to say good-bye to the dear old Junior days, but not with regret, for the grand days of a Senior are formed by the jolly days as a Junior. N. C. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 Iunior Iingles Here's to the class of gold and green, The jolliest class of all. We've Charles and Bun and Russell, too, To them the pleasures fall, Carrie and Clara are among our best, On them we all depend, Nina and Jane you never see rest, We'11 have them to the end. These girls we're all aware Are the studious ones of the class, The rest of us, do lag behind, And come among the last. Ruth is the idol of our class, We're proud of her, you bet, But far more proud than the Junior crowd, Is Ralph, whom we can't forget. Harvey and Joe, whom you all know, Are loyal Juniors, toog Elizabeth, Ethel, Erschel and John Uphold our colors true. Just think of Herschel, our athlete, He's mighty in "pep" and grit, He has won for us the honors sweet, We're sure he'll do his bit. Now in this class we have-you see, A girl with a face so fair, And a boy who thinks there's none so great, As the girl with the golden hair. There are two more and you may guess, As Juniors, they must work, But when we see them on a trip, Their joys they do not shirk. We work for the glory of G. H. S., We're loyal, brave, and gay, But Willie and Cloyd, Carter and Ray, Fight for the glory of U. S. A. KHAKT AND BLUE, '18 What Happened to Iones? "What Happened to Jones?" Were you there to find out? All those who were present found out, and did so in a very interesting and enjoyable manner. It was the play given by the class of '19, and directed by Miss Clark, to whom all credit is due for her faithful labor. It was presented March 22 to a full house, and everyone present thinks he never saw a better play. The following summary gives an idea of what it was all about. To begin with, it was the jolliest sort of a farce, clean and sparkling all the way through. A. professor of anatomy is lured to a prize fight and the police make a raid on the "mill," The professor escapes to his home, followed by Jones, a travel- ing salesman, who sells hymn-books when he can and playing cards when he can not. The police are on the trail, so Jones disguises himself by putting' on a Bishop's garb. Then, of course, a lot of funny complications ensue. The funny things that Jones does call forth roars of laughter and much applause. The other fun makers are aided not a little by an escaped lunatic. Finally the Bishop is recognized by Mr. Goodly and Alvina Starlight, the Bishop's sweetheart. Explanations on the part of Jones follow, and in answer to his questions if he may visit Cissy, he is told that he may. Following is the all-star cast: Jones, who travels for a Hymn Book house - Charles Spang Ebenezer Goodly, a Professor of Anatomy - Harvey Hewitt Antony Goodly, D.D., Bishop of Ballarat - Charles Haworth Richard Heatherly, engaged to Marjorie - James Canaday Thomas Holder, a policeman ...... John Hanson William Bigbee, an inmate of the Sanatorium - John Hanson Henry Fuller, Supt. of the Sanatorium - - - Ivan Burch Mrs. Goodly, Ebenezer's wife Cissy, Ebenezer's ward - - Marjorie, Ebenezer's daughter Minerva, Ebenezer's daughter Alvina Starlight, Mrs. Goodly's Telma, Swedish servant girl sister - - - Nina Crum Rosalee O'Herron - Ruth Woodruff - Claudia Yoho Josephine Talbott - Carrie Barr KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 4 r I ?gfif??fWjW ,f Wisfqflp ' YD """N- --X 'iw A L A 773 ...iff XXX' xv ff K , SRM!

ANU UDUU, '15 Sophomore Class History We, the Sophomore Class of G. H. S., began our Freshman year of high school life with a class of forty-seven members. During the year we had two class presidents, Ray Black pre- siding during the first semester, and Delbert Morris the second. Our whole Freshman year was taken up by many events, but in spite of the many interesting things that were happening, our great desire was to become Sophomores. At last the long looked for day arrived: we were no longer the "goats" of the school, but had become real Sophomores. Our first class meeting found twenty-eight present, and resulted in the election of Ray Black, Presidentg Delbert Morris, Vice- Presidentg Mabel Moses, Secretary, and Reba Moore, Treasurer. Thus our good ship was fitted out with a crew that was capable of piloting her through all the shoals and storms encountered in class life. We have taken a leading part in all school events, especially in athletics, having had five experienced men in football, two in basketball, and a favorable prospect for at least three for track. In short, we, have become the backbone of athletics. The first social event of our Sophomore Class was a recep- tion given for the Freshmen, who, in their verdant state, came like lambs to the slaughter and departed shorn of their iieece. Our annual class party was held at the home of Harry Lenhart, also, during the year we have had three roasts, two coasting parties, and participated in the Hallowe'en party given by the entire school. In social events, as in other things, we have been the leading spirit. In looking back over our Sophomore year we feel proud of the record we are leaving behind us and we know that our Junior year will be as good, if not better, and we believe that our Senior year will be one grand chronicle of brilliant suc- cesses.

A hand-1 to-hand combat commenced, and in a short! time the Germans gained the advantages Matters had come to a crisis when sud-l denly over 100,000,000 rats rushed out from, their respective holes and joined in theg fray. The Germans had greased their, boots just before the attack and it is. thought that the smell of grease. led the rats to attack. The Allies on seeing their, new friends, attacked bravely and drove the enemy from the field with heavy losses.Q However, the rats pursued the Germans to their trenches and are still in possession, ZEPPELIN BROUGHT DOWN y -CREW KILLEDl Jan. 4.-About 2:00 o'clock yesterday af- ternoon a large German Zeppelin was brought down. The Zeppelin was fioatmg! over the Allies' lines when it was caught' in currents of sound waves from a nearby wireless station.

Some were from town and some from the country, but all with a common desire to obtain a better education. With that purpose in view we have worked all year and now we can say we' are an established, promising class of G. H. S. To be sure, we trod the ordinary Freshman paths. We were initiated by the Sophomores who invited us to welcome us and then be- trayed us. We have been laughed at and criticized about our rubbers and decorations, but we should worry, we will get even next year. We have had parties, we have taken part in all the social life of the school, were especially the presiding genii of the Saint Patrick's Day party. We of classical mind, distin- guished ourselves by giving a select Latin play, Pyramus and Thisbe. The Latin class enjoyed it hugely. We have been prominent in athletics. Two members of our class were on the regular football team of the past season. Sev- eral played on the second basketball team, promising good ma- terial for next year's first team. In the girls' basketball con- test we have had part. We are wonderful in mathematics, so wonderful we work overtime on our algebra. In science we ex- cel. Doesn't the record book show? Our average as a class, we are told, is higher than has been the average of Freshman classes in previous years, and we will have fewer failures. Then why not be proud and ambitious to go on? Time alone can tell what we may become. 9 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 I 'x .. L 5 3 L. H m A 3 li. A, Toresf? Srnffhy . Chapenng, uBz'c.H.y3: "Izzy" I 'fhftMa1,zf,,ar. Q ,, i .

The paper is issued weekly and we co-operate with the News by a staif of volunteer reporters from the Senior Class. This system was begun in the year of 1916-1917, and the first election placed John Clark as Editor-in-Chief for the first semester, and Harry Smith for the second. A number of stu- dents were appointed to aid these editors in the work, and every- thing progressed nicely. This method proved so efficient that when the school year of 1917-1918 started it was decided to continue this way of letting the public learn a little of our business. Accordingly, an elec- tion was held early in September and the following staff officers were elected to continue the work through the first semester: Editor-in-Chief .... Elizabeth Roesch Social and Classroom - Marian Snapp Personal - - Hazel Schecter Athletics - - Earl Richards Proof Reader ..... Eugenia Selby This stad' carried on the usual work and many were the smiles, sighs and oftentimes groans that followed a glance over the weekly issue of the High School Notes. But it was our only way of giving people the honor and the necessary "bawlin' outs" due them, and so we intended to take advantage of it. As you read the honor roll column there bloomed a smile, if your name was on it, otherwise a long gasping breath which probably drifted into a groan with next month's issue. If you were absent and couldn't explain the why and the wherefore, when Friday's issue came forth, you accosted the Editor-in-Chief and perhaps made bold warnings of what the consequences would be if the thing happened again. Yes, that was the way it was all along. If important events were not stated in just the manner desired the Editor-in-Chief received the knocks, when in all events it was not the fault of that ever- faithful, but much-maligned dignitary, but some rogue had smuggled it past the censor. Yes, that's how it got in the paper. At the close of the first semester a new staff was elected: Editor-in-Chief .... Florence Moore Social and Classroom Mary Elizabeth Jones Personal - - - - Gladys Morris Proofreader - - - Melba Shepler Athletics . ...... Harley Starks This column has proved to be one of the most interesting parts of the paper, and aside from serving as a bureau of in- formation it was a source of enjoyment and afforded much pleasure for both the school and' town. We feel very grateful to the editor of the Georgetown News in so generously giving us the space in his paper and desire to use this as one of our methods in extending our thanks. It is hoped the work may be continued in the succeeding school years, with as much ef- ficiency as it has in the preceding two years. 4 J. ELIZABETH Roi-zscn, 18. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 CAST OF OPERETTA, "ISLE OF CHANCE." 55 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 ' Opcrcttas Just to liven things up a bit and to relieve the monotony of those bleak December nights, we decided to give an Operetta. That was three years ago, and since then an Operetta by a cast of G. H. S. people has become an 'annual event. Mr. Stronks always directs them. Who else in our midst could do it so ably? Who else is there that could manage those rollicksome boys and girls on rehearsal nights? Can we forget when the now departed John of '17 broke the scenery? No, but it all came all right. ' Our first Operetta was "Windmills of Holland," given De- cember 17, 1915. It was a decided success. A full house greeted us and the play went off like clock-work. After such a height of success had been attained we could not bear to quit the stage and the land of bright lights, so accordingly in the fall of 1916 we presented "Polished Pebbles." This was the musical event of the year, and again the public showed its appreciation. "The Isle of Chance" was given in December of 1917. It was our third Operetta and with Mr. Stronks again directing us it was a howling success. Since it is the last Operetta the Seniors will have the pleasure of participating in, and since we are showing a picture of the grand finale on the opposite page, it might be interesting to name the caste: THE ISLE OF CHANCE.

They require no small amount of work on the part ,of the students and di- rector, yet when the thing is summed up the reward is Worth the labor. Neat sums have been gained from these musical comedies and the money was disbursed in book cases, library books, and music books. More and perhaps better ones will be given in the future, for when we glance over our assembly we at once notice candi- dates for stardom, and since we Seniors, who have always been prominent participants, are about to depart, we now leave the task of giving the succeeding operettas in their hands. We wish them much success. J. ELIZABETH RoEscH, '18, KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 THE DOMESTIC SCIENCE CLASS. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 Domestic Science This is the first year G. H. S. has offered a course in Domes- tic Science. The equipment permits sixteen girls to take the course. They have two-burner oil stoves, two girls using one stove. Their worktables are white, have two drawers, with the compartment between in which to keep the stools when they are not in use. They have a full supply of miniature cooking utensils and each girl does individual cooking. Miss Henderson is instructor and has a class enrollment of nine, who are Mildred Fletcher, Mary Bubnis, Elise Rossignol, Florence Moore, Clara Camp, Marian Snapp, Josephine Talbott, Claudia Yoho, Erschel Starks. They are using the Green Cook Book, but have always changed the recipes to fit war-time measures. As a supplement to this they use the Oflicial Reading Book. Two-fifths of their time is spent in outside reading of interest to "cooks" They read the Chemical Lessons in The Independent each week. Also attention is given to serving, making of menus, and health. How- ever, the keynote of all their work has been war-time economy and they have observed all rules of Hoover. They prepared the refreshments for the Hallowe'en party and all who attended will tell you what good cooks they are. The class was hostess to the faculty and from the smiling faces noticed during the afternoon we know the "eats" were good. They also prepared and served a banquet given by Mr. Minnis for the basketball boys. During the year they have worked on an exhibit which was given March twenty-ninth in connection with a food demon- stration. We, who have not had the opportunity to work in this class have enjoyed the tid-bits fed to us and the delicious odors which iilled the building. MELBA SHEPLER KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 THE MANUAL TRAINING CLASS. AHAAI HIV!! DLIUD, .ld Manual Training Class Manual Training was introduced into the High School as a regular COUTSG in the fall of 1917. The class consisted of fifteen pupils: eight Seniors and seven Juniors, as Juniors and Seniors only could take the course. At the beginning of the year the equipment for the room had not arrived, and we could not be- gin work at once. During the last two weeks of school we prac- ticed mechanical drawing. When our tools came each was given a desk to assemble, and set of tools to unpack and number. Then we were given a les- son in assembling and sharpening our tools. When our tools were thoroughly sharpened our first lesson was a planing ex- ercise. It took us about two weeks to complete one perfect board. When this was finished we were allowed to start work on a small book rack. Our material was a small board which we had to plane and chisel smooth. Later, our exercises were making practice joints, the half-lap, dove-tail, mortice and tendon, this giving us practice with both plane and chisel. Our next exercise was a sawing exercise. As we were now getting used to our tools we next took a piece of rough board 1 x 4 inches and with a spoke shaver and some sand paper turned out coat-hangers. This completing our work for the first se- mester. At the beginning of the second semester we were able to make whatever we chose, and various articles were chosen, and dur- ing a delay of about two weeks for lack of lumber we made de- signs of various articles we were to make. And when we had these finished and our lumber not yet having arrived, we made milking stools. When our lumber came it was in the rough, just as it had come from the saw-millg the mahogany coming in rough boards 1 x 12 inches x 14 feet, the cedar, in 1 x 4 inches x 6 feet lengths. The cherry also came in rough boards 1x12 inchesx16 feet. Each pupil was given enough lumber for the article they were to make and could not waste any. Aside from being one of the most interesting classes in school, it is the most enjoyable. If one should open the door of the Manual Training room between the hours of 10:10 and 12:00 o'clock in the morning the hum of the saw, hammer and chisel could he heard mingling together in perfect harmony. Although we did practically nothing for the first few weeks but make shavings, but by hard work and careful attention to what we are doing we are now turning out piano benches, cedar chests and various other articles of furniture. We are planning to hold an exhibition of all work completed this year. This exhibit will consist of two cedar chests, one umbrella rack, three book racks, three piano benches, three tabourets, one foot-stool, and one picture case, and various other small articles. This exhibition will be held the latter part of April, and will show exactly what the class has accomplished. RICHARD GRAVES. A THE PHYSICS CLASS 1-11.3.4 muy uuuu Lu The Study of Physics in the High School Is there any subject in the High School curriculum which more nearly satisfies the human desire to know the "How" and the "Why" of things than the subject of Physics? Giving us, as it does, the explanation of the great laws of nature, taking those things in the physical world about us which we usually accept as ordinary and common-place, it clothes them with a new interest and a new meaning. The dew-drop becomes more brilliant, the crystal more curious, and the beam of sun- light more fascinating. Keeping this in mind, an effort is made to present this sub- ject in our school so as to make it not only interesting and at- tractive as possible, but also to present it in a logical and scien- tific way. In the laboratory, more emphasis is placed on quality than on speed. Students are urged to perform their experi- ments slowly and carefully and to record their results in a clear and logical way. Every effort is made to create in the pupil a scientific attitude of mind. The time value in the study of Physics lies in the training it gives in the formation of habits of observation, in attention to the slightest details, in cultivating accurate and definite meth- ods of work and in expression of ideas. Our laboratory is well equipped for the carrying out of these ideas. Sufficient apparatus is available for the performance of seventy-five experiments or more. No one particular manual is used, but exercises are so selected from various sources as to acquaint the pupil with certain interesting physical phenome- non and to show the operation and the use of practical devices or instruments that are applications of physical principles. Archimedes' Principle to determine the relation between the loss of weight of a sinking solid and the weight of a liquid displaced by ity the Law of Floatation, to show that a .body lighter than water will sink until the weight of the water displaced by it is equal to the weight of the body, determining the specific gravity of liquids and solidsg illustrating the mechanical advantage of the lever, the pulley, the inclined plane, and others of the sim- ple machinesg reilection in plane concave and convex mirrors, mixing colorsg mapping magnetic lines of force, making an electro-magnetg electro-plating. These are just a few of the problems carried out in the laboratory. The valuable Static machine and X-Ray pictured on another page enables the student to study the production of an electric spark and its effects in a much better way than by means of the smaller instrument usually found in the school laboratory. The principle of the lightning-rod can be very forcibly demon- strated by means of this machineg the electric chimesg the charg- ing of a Leyden jarg besides many experiments which do not bear directly upon the subject of Physics. This instrument alone is doing a great deal to stimulate interest in the study of Physics among our pupils. W. J. S.

Seven "G" men were back and the boys were ready to go on the field for the first night of practice. Coach Minnis had worked out a new system of sig- nals and plays. Under the coaching of Minnis and Claude Bowen, who helped for about a month, the team rapidly worked itself into shape. On September 29, the team defeated Danville on the home grounds. The game was fierce and hard fought. The next two games were won and we began to hope for a winning year and the recovery of the trophy. But the loss of Captain Smith, left half-back, soon changed the outlook. Hard luck came all at once and we lost the next three games. Discovering our mistakes through sad experience we came back with all the force we had on Oakland and won. Then after laying over for ten days without a game we went to Jacksonville to decide the Wabash Valley Championship. Jacksonville lived up to its reputation and came out victorious. Although winning only half the games, the team was always doing its best and the scores do not indicate how hard each game was fought. SCHEDULE, '17. September 29-Georgetown, 175 Danville, 14.

A speedy player and one who used his head. His "pep" always helped the rest of the team. In the first minute of the Arcola game his shoulder was broken. He was unable to play the rest of tho season. HERSCHEL SMITH-Right end and right half-back. "Smithy" is the fastest football man Georgetown has ever had. He was easily the star of the team. No runs were ever made around his end. At Jasonville he played an especially fine game although he was very sick. He was the only Georgetown man to get on the picked Wabash Valley team. DELBERT MORRIS-Fullback. "Fatty" was switched to fullback this year. He is heavy and fast and makes an excel- lent line plunger. He is only a Sophomore. What a plunging fullback he will be when he is a Senior! EARL RICHARDS-Richards' position is at right half-back. He has played this position for three years. This experience, coupled with his speed, made him a man to be afraid of at all times. Wiley thinks so, at any rate. ALBERT GUSTAFSON--Quarterback. "Red" was switched from halfback to quarter and of course made good. Always cool-headed and watchful, he would surprise the other team with a trick play when they least expected it, as he did in the Robin- son game. JOHN HANSON--Left guard and left tackle. "Fat" made the team because of his weight and natural awkwardness. These qualities make him a real football player. He is one of the hardest fighters on the team. OTTO UNVERFERTH-Right guard. Otto is a heavy man and makes a good guard. Always gets up grinning when he gets a hard knock. He never loses his temper or uroughs up" his opponent. He is a Sophomore. OMER RICHARDSON-Right tackle. Omer just had to play at tackle. He is just a little slow but always gets his man. One of the hardest workers on the team and always fighting. He has two more years to play. . RUSSELL CLIPSON-Center. "Clip" is our biggest foot- ball man. His weight makes him a valuable line man when weight is required. He has one more year to play. f HAROLD MORRIS-Left guard. "Heck" is one of the best and hardest tacklers on the team. Nobody can say that he has everiquit fighting in a game. He is another Sophomore. CHARLEY LAWLYES-Sub left half-back. "Tuffy" is the at left end. He played a fine 69 KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 lightest man on the squad.

DECEMBER 14, 1917. Georgetown, 15. Chrisman, 11. The Chrisman coach used his second team during the first half and it was a good match for us. In the second half their first team failed to do so well as had the second team and we won. Chrisman had been playing ball since school started and this was their first defeat. Tom got two baskets and one foulg "Red," two baskets, and Harley, three. Our guards played well. .What Do You Mean By High Score? DECEMBER 21, 1917. Georgetown, 51. Vermilion Academy, 10. We were determined to win this game to avenge our defeat of a month ago, when we had no practice and were defeated. Tom was unable to play and his place was filled by Otto. Harley got nine ringersg "Red," thirteen, and three fouls, Dunivan, one, Burch, one. Chrisman Stages a Comeback! DECEMBER 27, 1917. Georgetown, 20 AT Chrisman, 36 We started out strong but soon found that we couldn't shoot baskets as well as usual. Our guards failed to stop them on account of the floor and we were defeated from the start. We couldn't play up to our standard because we did not practice during the vacation. Good Homer But Not Good Enough? JANUARY 5, 1918. Georgetown, 33. Homer, 18. When we defeated Homer we defeated a very strong team. We were about evenly matched the first half. Homer became "winded" the second half, presumably on account of too much smoking. "Red" got seven baskets, Tom, six, and three foulsg Harley, two. Cur Old Rivals Halt Our Winning Streak! JANUARY 18, 1918. Georgetown, 11 AT Danville, 24 The fellows had a slight touch of brick fever and were not able to sccre baskets after the first half. Danville scored a few ringers and we were unable to surpass their score. Tom got one basket and three free throws, Harley got three baskets, "Red" received a sprained ankle. We Win Again! JANUARY 25, 1918. Georgetown, 47. Oakwood, 21. Starks was the high point man, caging baskets from any place on the floor. Tom was a close second. The guards played a stellar game. Harley, twelve baskets, Tom, seven, and "Red," three. Some Fight! FEBRUARY 1, 1918. Georgetown, 33 AT Westville, 11 We knew that we had an easy game so we would not prac- tice hard. However, Westville fooled us. Neither team got many baskets, but we came out with the big end of the score. "Red" got six baskets, Tom, sixg Harley, three. Homer Deals Out a Surprise. FEBRUARY 8, 1918. Georgetown, 11 AT Homer, 25 We started out strong and played well throughout the first half. However, we couldn't stand the pace on such a floor and lost our "pep," The radiators on the fioor were fierce. "Red" two baskets, Tom, oneg Delbert, oneg Harley, one. 1 Georgetown Stages a Comeback. FEBRUARY 15, 1918. Georgetown, 17. F Danville, 14. The game started with a rush. All players were Uroughing it." It was a fight from start to finish. Danville was in the lead till a few minutes before the end when we 'fpepped up" and "went over the top," winning by four points. This was the best attended game of the season. "Red," three baskets, Tom, twog Delbert, one, Harley, one. Too Much Robinson! -FEBRUARY 22, 1918. , Georgetown, 17 AT Robinson, 41 This was our longest trip and we left early in the morning. We visited the school and rested up for the game which was played at 8:30. We fought hard but were outclassed on that floor by our friendly rivals. Robinson certainly proved them- selves admirable hosts and showed us a good time after the game. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 The District Tournament. MARCH 1, 1918. Georgetown, 17. Garret, 31. We started early Friday morning for Champaign determined to win the first game and expected an easy victory because Garret is just a small school, but we couldn't keep up the pace set by our opponents and we were forced out of the race. County Tournament at Danville. MARCH 8, 1918. Georgetown, 42. Alvin, 11. We were sure of winning the first game, so we took it easy, thereby resting up for the last game. Dunivan and Otto played forwards. Second Place Sure Enough! MARCH 9, 1918. Georgetown, 26. Henning, 16. This was the deciding game for second place at least, so both teams started out with a rush. Henning made several fouls and two men were put out and then we won quite easily. All's Well That Ends Well. MARCH 9, 1918. Georgetown, 19. Sidell, 14. The unexpected defeat of Danville by Sidell gave us Sidell to play for the final game. We started fast, but Sidell managed to keep in the lead. The half ended 5-6 in favor of Sidell. As the second half passed, the outcome was uncertain, each team throwing alternate baskets. In the last quarter, we Hpepped up" a bit and got two baskets in succession and Georgetown went "over the top" with the best of luck and carried home the county trophy. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 Qur Coach For the term of 1916-'17 L. E. Minnis, just graduated from the University of Illinois and a member of the famous U. of I. track team of '14, was employed as a physical director and coach. He took no active part in coaching the football team that year because a coach had been already employed. The prospects for a basketball team were unusually poor, but Mr. Minnis, not at all discouraged, picked enough men to place on the floor a fairly good team and one which won second place in the County Tour- nament. He made an even greater success of the track season, training four men who won the County Meet and a silver cup in the Relay Carnival. A month before the term ended Mr. Minnis enlisted in the Ofiicers' Reserve, and was sent to Fort Sheridan, but was later rejected because of his bad eyesight. This year he returned to us and began his work coaching the football team. Although the team won only 50 per cent of its games the record was due to tough luck and not weakness in coaching. With only one "G" man gone from the basketball squad, Mr. Minnis began a new system of playing and passing that enabled the team to win nine of fourteen games and the County Tour- nament. Since Mr. Minnis has been with us the school's conception of, and ideals of athletics have been higher than in former years. His only strict rule is abstinence from the use of tobacco. He has discountenanced all dirty playing and has refused to let his players "get even" with a player who is dirty. With teams having -a reputation for unclean playing he has refused to schedule games. His methods of fairnes and cleanness have gained the friendship of all the boys. He has given us a higher reputation for clean playing among other schools. He is our representative at all the County Athletic Association meetings and through him Georgetown has been given a fair chance, es- pecially in basketball. He is in the present draft and has passed his examination. He may be called before school is out. If he is called we will lose the best all around good fellow, coach, and teacher that we have ever had. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 s TRACK COUNTY CHAMPIONS, '17, KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 Track '17 When grim old winter retreated with the basketball activi- ties and the mild spring days came with their track events, a group of lads began to appear for track. Very soon a team was formed that was to be one of the best teams that Georgetown has ever produced. Herschel Smith and Richard Graves began to train for the 50-yard, 100-yard, and 220-yard dashes. "Red" was seen galloping around the football gridiron getting in trim for the quarter, half, and mile runs., Richards began to search through the darkest realms of the store-room for the hurdles and was soon seen climbing them like a whirlwind and indulging in a 50-yard dash for pastime. Again Georgetown demonstrated that although handicapped by the small number of men out for track, she is most prominent in track events. In the first meet of the season, a dual meet between Georgetown and Vermilion Academy, Georgetown won an easy victory. The team entered the Charleston Meet where Richards won first in the hurdles and "Red" second in the mile run. At Danville, a week later, Georgetown ran away with the County Meet. Herschel Smith won first in the 50-yard, 100- yard, and 220-yard dashes. Earl Richards won first in the hurdles and third in the 100-yard dash. Richard Graves won second in the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes. "Red" Gustafson won first in the quarter, half and mile races. Incidentally, he broke the county record of 2:1 1-5 for the half mile, and estab- lished a new one of 2:7 1-5. Georgetown won the relay race at a walk. The total number of points gained by Georgetown was 42. Our nearest competitor was Danville, with 24 points. When Georgetown won the County Meet she also won the right to keep the big County Track Champion Pennant, having won the meet for three successive years. Earl Richards has the honor of winning the County Hurdles race for three successive years. Out of a possible nineteen years Georgetown has cap- tured the hurdles race eighteen times. The oldest county rec- ord is the hurdles record held by F. H. Cook of Georgetown and established 1901. On May 26 the Second Annual Relay Carnival was held at Georgetown. This meet was originated andppromoted by the business men of Georgetown. Invitations were sent to all the schools of East Central Illinois and Western Indiana. Some of the schools that entered were Champaign, Urbana, Danville, Cayuga, Clinton, Hillsboro, Bement and Ambia. The day for the meet was rainy and the track, a new dirt track, was a road- way of mud. However, one record, the 100-yard dash, held by Powers of Decatur, was broken by McCammon of Urbana. Champaign won the two-mile relay and mile relay races. Clin- ton won the one-half, one, and two-mile relay race, and George- town won the mile Medley race. Sparks of Danville, broke his former record in the pole vault and Johnson of Champaign won the high jump. Two silver cups were carried away by Cham- paigng one by Clinton, and one by Georgetown. Three members of the team, "Red" Gustafson, Earl Richards, and Herschel Smith, accompanied by Dr. Fletcher, attended the Annual Stagg meet held at the University of Chicago. At this meet the track stars from all over the country may be seen. "Red" received two cups for winning third place in the mile and fourth in the half mile.

KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 The Girls Physical Training Class With the completion and equipment of the new gymnasium the need of physical training for girls as well as for boys was felt. The beginning of the school year 1915 saw physical train- ing for girls established as a part of the regular curriculum. All the girls that year were required to take the work. The following year the requirement was made only for Freshmen and Sophomores. The work has consisted of corrective exer- cises, drills, folk-dances, rythmic work with wands and dumb- bells, marching, and basketball. Considerable interest has been manifested in all the work, especially in basketball. Series games have been held each year. The first year, inter-class games in which the present Seniors, then Sophomores, won the trophy contested with the class of '16. The next year the girls were divided into two groups, each girl winning six games was to be awarded a letter. This current year no division was made and any girl playing in six winning games during the season is to be awarded a letter. The following girls thus far have won their "G's."

At the breaking of winter and the approach of spring six wee, wee Sophomores grew tired of the dainty lunches prepared by their mothers. They insisted that they have something good to eat. Accordingly, they made a menu of pimento sandwiches, olives, sour pickles, fudge, bananas, dates, and those other eat- ables which bring in sleep visions of snakes, examinations, and green-eyed monsters. The next day after a secret conference with Mr. Warner these six wee girls met in the gym. Here they adopted the name of G. E. M. Of course they also did full justice-per- haps more than full justice-to the spread. During the re- mainder of the year they continued to meet every month with Mr. Warner as chaperone. In the Junior year they decided they did not have enough to eat so they increased the number of donators to twelve. The requirements for membership were the possession of one of the initials G, E, or M, and absolute secrecy concerning the name. They had their feasts once a month during the Junior year. They found their aim had been more than realized, for many times during the afternoon agonized groans came from the re- gions of the rest-room. In the Senior year the G. E. M. was thrown open to all Senior girls. Because of the enlarged membership, which made it hard to get all together at once, and the occasional tid-bits fed to them by the Domestic Science Class, they did not meet so regularly. Would it have been dignified or patriotic to eat too much, for was not Hoover to be reckoned with? G. E. M. has always been very loosely organized for what good was a President or a Vice-President when a "spread" was desired? Next year we shall be far away and forgotten by many so why longer guard our secret? If you remember the play, "How a Woman Keeps a Secret," you are probably wondering why I say a secret, when it is a girls' club. It is always pleasing to one's vanity to think you are the sole possessor of a piece of news, so we called it a secret. But it is still more pleasing to share a secret. Perhaps you have already guessed it. G. E. M. represents that simpleltheory which has been fully demonstrated and proved, "Girls Eat Much." MELBA Sm-JPLER. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 THE GOOD-NIGHT KISS "Goodnight, dearie, and pleasant dreams." "But, mamma, you didn't kiss me." "Mother hasn't time now. Nurse'll kiss you." Lucile Grey was in a hurry. Even'now she was a little late to dinner and Mrs. LeRoy was always ready to criticise. Five minutes later a well-dressed young couple might have been seen hurriedly entering a limousine from the porte-cochere of the hotel, whence they were quickly conveyed, through the streets of San Francisco, to the residence of Mrs. LeRoy. It was in the wee small hours of the morning that they re- turned, and, as the mother leaned over little Dorthy's crib a wave of remorse swept over her. She kissed the Hushed, dim- pled cheek and retired, still feeling the warm pressure of the child's hand in hers. About five o'clock in the chilly April morning thousands of people were rudely awakened by an awful wave-like motion which ripped open huge buildings, letting in the grey morning light upon their terrified occupants. This terrible sensation was immediately followed by a deafening crash of bursting mains and falling architecture. "What is it? My God, help us!" The air was rent with shrieks and groans. People rushed madly to the streets only to be killed by avalanches of debris. Doors jammed and the frenzied tenants, thus made prisoners, leaped from the win- dows. Another shock close upon the heels of the preceding one! Lucile and her husband clung frantically to the bed, fearful of being hurled, they knew not whither. A ghastly fissure in the wall showed them a hail of bricks, glass, furniture and even mangled human forms. Had the end of the world come? It seemed an eternity, though in reality the shock lasted but a few minutes. During the ensuing pause a loud voice was heard in the hall commanding everyone to dress and leave the building. Mad with terror and with no thought of either husband or child, Lu- cile frantically donned the articles of clothing which first met her grasp, and rushed blindly from the rooms. "The elevator"- it was a mass of tangled iron, wrenched shapeless by unseen hands. Down the stairs she flew, unmindful of the fainting women and frenzied men around her. She scrambled over the heap of debris at the entrance and then stopped-chained to the spot by a horrible fascination. A grocery cart passed by filled with forms that a few minutes before had been human beings. Across the street a black abyss, a bottomless pit, yawned in the place of the huge Coliseum. Not a dozen yards from her a group of oiiicers were dragging from under a fallen wall what remained of a man. The poor fellow was all but dead and piteously begged his rescuers to end his misery with a pis- tol ball. And the Hres, how they leaped and danced mockingly in a semi-circle around the ill-fated city. It took but a second of time to see this awful picture and in another instant Lucile was swept onward by the wave of hu- manity that now, gathering from all directions, rushed head- long, carrying with it all that fell in its way. "But, mamma, you didn't kiss me." Was it Dorothy's voice, or merely Lucile's over-wrought mind? Swept onward, she strove vainly to overtake the echo which persistently called for the good-night kiss. She felt again the tender pressure of her little one's hand, the child's warm breath blew across her face, and always just before her rose the vision of a Hushed and dim- pled face, waiting to be kissed. Was she saved? Did her loved one overtake her, and do they now sit around their hearth fires and speak of the San Francisco earthquake? Ask the stars that calmly and serenely kept watch over the devastated city, ask the moon that coldly looked down with unsympathetic eye upon the blighted hopes and blasted plans of thousands. ELISE ROSSIGNOL. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 T WG FARES BACK HOME "Once in the dear, dead days beyond recall"-a breathless si- lence, broken only by the sweet tenor of the singer pervaded the brilliantly lighted cafe. He was a handsome boy and had been a good pal to me for two years. I sat at a table facing the singer. Beside me sat an overly-dressed and painted young woman. She was undoubtedly good looking, but one felt that life had been somewhat cruel to her. And yet she was not wholly hardened, for just now tears, caused by the singing and something else, stood in her eyes. I said something to her, but she seemed all unconscious of my presence. Her thoughts were far away on earlier days. I had been told her story by Bob Neff, the singer. In a little village about one hundred miles from New York, Ruth and Bob and several other boys and girls had spent their childhood. There were four couples. The boys formed a sing- ing club and would go around on moonlight summer evenings serenading the girls. On Sunday nights the crowd would collect in some home and have a merry evening. Bob fell in love with Ruth and she, as it always happens-he had said, somewhat bit- terly-she fell in love with another of the quartet. Bob pro- posed and was rejected. He came to New York. No one could understand how he had worked during those years-how he had tried to forget. At last, success, big, overwhelming success, had come. He could sing-that boy could. I never did believe such trash and "sob stuff" that is told of audiences when Caruso and other artists sing, but I do now. That boy could take you right back to the old, low, rambly farm house and the bees in the orchard full of ripe fruit, and make you remember how you loitered along the road from school with the girls while your father did your chores. Well, the girl's case was also one of unrequited love, and so she also came to New York. Bob had met her several times, had tried to help her and had begged her to go back home with him, but she wouldn't. Bob went wild, spent money like the Kaiser, and was usually broke. The girl stayed as decent as she could in her bitter struggle with poverty, and discourage- ment. Sometimes she and Bob would dine together. I met her on one of these occasions. She never had heard Bob sing in New York, so I passed it to Bob that I would bring her to the Cafe that night and thought perhaps she would be moved to give up to him and go home. "Though the heart be weary, Sad the day and longg Still to us at twilight Comes love's sold song," sang the singer. The girl broke down and sobbed. It was the old love song they had sung in those old days before either had known sadness or remorse. As he finished, he stepped down, unconscious of the misty-eyed, applauding crowd, and came to my table. He put his arms around her and said, "Will you go home, now, dear?" She sobbingly nodded her head. Bob dived into his inside vest pocket: "Two fares back home," he said, "I've kept 'em there for a year." They walked out with never a word of thanks to me, and I hastily bent over the glass to hide the tears in my eyes. THOMAS LEWIS. x l . KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 GALATEA Allen Dale's cold, intellectual, unsympathizing face was lighted with a fierce joy. A look so burning in its intensity that it seemed it would shrivel the figure in the corner. But the figure never moved. It was a wonderful form, that of a maiden so fair and so life-like that the eyes seemed to smile and the lips to beckon. As he gazed, maddened with joy, he called her. But she did not move. His head fell slowly to his bosom, the light died from his steel gray eyes. His shoulders shook with despairing sobs. . Modred, his dwarf assistant, glided noiselessly across the room and whispered, with the look of a demon tempting a soul which he knew would yield, "A mind? Can I not get you a mind?" The creator's face brightened for a moment. Then his eyes were filled with horror as a vision of his loyal wife, Faith, and his lovely daughter, Margadelle, passed before him. Once he had loved them passionately. But that was before the over- powering love of science filled his heart. The vision lasted but a fieeting moment. The pleading faces were consigned to outer darkness. Science was queen. A fiendish look spread over his face as he nodded assent to Modred, who slipped noiselessly from the room. Allen approached the figure and caressed it with loving, gentle fingers. Yes, he would put a mind in the lovely creature. His face shone with exultation. Modred slipped noiselessly from the building and with rapid steps approached the residence section of the city. In a bril- liantly lighted house some young people were having a masqued dance. One figure, more joyously graceful than the rest, flitted here and there like a butterfiy till her steps led to the cool, dark- ened veranda. Her partner left her and went for ices. When he returned she was gone. Nor could they find her, search as they might. Modred glided into the laboratory, leading a reluctant, masqued figure. Allen surveyed it with a look of fiendish joy. He knew how to imprison the gay mind within. The victim would have to undergo unspeakable torture, but what did that matter so long as he gave to the world another, his beautiful scientific creation! He snatched the masque from the hidden face and a cry of pained horror escaped from between his blue lips. It was Marga- delle-his own once passionately-loved daughter. All the old love surged through his science-hardened heart. Faith, rushing to tell him of MargadelIe's disappearance, found them. The father was clasped, sobbing, in Margadel1e's arms. Love had triumphed over Science. EUGENIA SELBY. KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 THE CONFESSION Sister Archangel gasped and drew slightly back when she entered Room Nine, where her latest patient was. She soon recovered her poise, went swiftly to the patient and saw his condition. He lay there so still and white, so terribly helpless. As the Sister turned aside to prepare some medicine, she came face to face with a beautiful woman who looked scorn- fully at the Sister, but after a second glance at the calm, beau- tiful nun, the woman suppressed a scream with difficulty. The eyes of the two women met, one hiding fear by a look of hatred and the other, the nun, with pity in her eyes. "You-you-after so long a time?" The woman looked at the Sister, fear now becoming the predominant expression. "Yes, Nell-but have no fear, it is different now." The Sister's voice was low and soothing. "Then you forgive me? You don't hate me-after all I have done? Oh, Rose, I've sinned so, if I could only take your place and you mine." "Hush, Nell. You will disturb him. I forgave you long ago, and it is better the way it is, just so he is happy." "But Rose, he has learned his mistake now, and-and I have learned my lesson. He loves you yet, he almost hates me at times. I was so wicked, and it was all a lieg I have told him what I said was false. He forgave me, but--oh-I love him so. It is hard, hard." Her voice broke and an awful silence fell. The sick Aman stirred, opened his eyes, but his thoughts seemed far away. Suddenly he looked around the roomy his roving eyes fell upon the beautiful nun. "Rose-my Rose!" He stretched his hands toward her-but Death was kind. Sister Archangel pressed her rosary to her heart and turned away. ALTA COURTER. i .. 0'- KHAKI AND BLUE, '18 86 SOCIAL ACTIVITIES Football and basketball seemed to have robbed us of time for social activities for we could not tempt the boys from the regulations given by Mr. Minnis. The two most important social events in the High School world this year were the Hallowe'en party and the St. Patrick party. At the Hallowe'en party given the third of November we had as special guests the Robinson football team and coach. Identifying the masquers was the first event of the evening. A witch's den received a large share of attention. After un- masking several games were enjoyed. Partners for supper were chosen by fitting together black cats. Salad, wafers, pumpkin pie, and cider were served. The presentation of the "G's" to the boys and the prizes won in the various contests closed the program for the evening. The St. Patrick's party, managed by Freshmen committees, under Faculty direction, was held in the Assembly and in the gym. A'n Irish Town contest started the evening's fun. Next we journeyed to the gym where was held a highly diverting track meet in which Wabash College won the loving cup. Part- ners for supper were chosen by their feet. Refreshments, con- sisting of ice cream, delicately tinted in the color of St. Patrick's day, and wafers, were served by the Freshmen girls. A musical program was next enjoyed. Miss Sibyl Loofborrow, a talented pianist from Earlham, who was a special guest of the evening, played for us. Several of our own "song-birds" entertained us with familiar Irish songs. At eleven the beautiful melody of "Home, Sweet Home," filled the air. Aside from these all school affairs, each class had several parties and roasts. MELBA SHEPLER- THE OLD A L QM NI.
