Fieshman days now bring a smile,
For our faults we realize,
Though they laughed so at us then,
We have proven we're bound to rise
We, as Sophomores, improved,
Added knowledge showed its trace,
No longer were we trampled on,
We were gaining in the race.
Jolly Juniors rise still higher
With our growing learning bold.
We have passed the halfway mark,
Now we're on the outward road.
Seniors, now, we're almost through.
High school life is passing fast.
We will soon be far away,
Dreaming of the days long past.
Memories of happy times,
Roasts and pranks and lively fun,
Droll mistakes and all such things
Will remain when we are done..
Thoughts of future' life and work,
Rosy dreams of ease and rest,
Wealth and happiness untold,
With success and fame so blest.
Though we wish for all these things,
Though our hopes are rising high,
Yet we know that heavy hardships
Wait-to meet us bye and bye.
When they come and battle with us,
When they strive to overcome,
We've a shield which then will guard-
'Tis the knowledge we have won.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Out of the ceaseless struggle for existence in school life have emerged
twenty-nine Seniors, battle-scarred, but not defeated, and all the more pre-
pared to contend and conquer in the great battle of life.
Would, dear reader, that you turn with me for a few moments from
the turmoil of existence to a retrospection of the history of those twenty-
nine, which is unparalleled in the annals of G. H. S.
Uncultured and untutored in the conventionality and etiquette of
high school, we, the twenty-nine and fourteen others, entered our freshmen
year in the fall of 1918, but we soon acquired scholastic tendencies and
participated in all activities. Parties, numbers of them, were our diver-
sions after the primal charms of entrance into high school had withered.
We elected Orville Macklin to pilot us over the unknown, stormy sea of our
first semester. Glentis O'Neal, long since departed to Ohio, was our presi-
dent for the last half of the year.
September, 1919, and our troubles began again after a greatly en-
joyed vacation, for geometry, ominous and forboding, towered like a mighty
giant, eager to destroy us, and Caesar, mighty conqueror that he was, stood
ready to vanquish the thirty-tive that remained. Because of the athletic
record that Orville Macklin, by that time more generally known as "Shack"
had made, we elected him again the president of what was then our sopho-
more class. That year, more parties and roasts and a pusillanimous at-
tempt to ensnare the elusive hearts of the upper classncen were our enter-
tainments. Our president, our speed king, also showed his ability as a
runner by winning in the county, Charleston, and state meets.
'20, as Juniors, there were twenty-six of us, proud and haughty, for
coveted "Seniorship" lay but one year before usg but school activities soon
grew strenuous enough to bring us "back to earth" and to cause us to think
of the present and not of the future. For the first time in our history, a
girl was given the honor of being our president and Alta Powell filled the
position exceedingly Well. Football first, for we had a number of stars on
the team, and then basketball, and, later, track claimed our attention.
Junior play, sighs, nights of anguish for Miss Ruth Clark, our coach, end-
less labor, and then "All of a Sudden Peggy" reaped its own reward as one
of the best Junior plays ever given in G. H. S. More exhausting training
and sleepless nights and Lois Satterfield and Frances Mingee emerged as
victors from the school declamatory contest. Then Lois and Horace Stark,
in declamatory and extempore, respectively, wan out in the district, both
representing us in the county contest at Westville. "Shack" won places in
the County and Charleston track meets. At the Junior-Senior banquet,
we showed the Seniors that they had met their equals and we served them
a ,very sumptuous and long-to-be-remembered banquet.
Now we are Seniors, lacking all that dignity that people say is charac-
teristic. Emma Keenan, Denzel Edmonds, Effie Pribble, and Sarah Crom-

well, all valuable members, have joined our class. Lois has been given the
honor of representing us both as president and editor-in-chief. The record
our fellows have made in football and basketball this year speaks for it-
self. "Shack" is expected to bring us honors again in tl ack. Lois Satterfield,
Emma Keenan, and Robert Cornelius are to represent us in declamation
and Fred Snyder and Robert Cornelius in extempore. We have already had
three parties and are intending to have many more.
In proof of our quite exceptional ability, here is our record:
Of the eleven men on the football team this year, eight were Seniors.
"Shack" Macklin, Denzel Edmonds, Thomas Jenkins, Herbert Thornton,
and Lester Dunivan made exceptional records. Herbert, Thomas and
Lester have done likewise in basketball.
The countless victories of Orville Macklin and Robert Tharp prove
unquestionably our superiority in track.
The school tennis champions, Lois Satterfield and Robert Cornelius,
are both from our class.
The records of Frances Mingee, Lois Satterfield, and Horace Stark, as
speakers, are a source of pride on our part.
Alta Powell, Eulah Morris, Denzel Edmonds, and Robert Cornelius
have been members of the high school orchestra for four years.
We have given successfully two plays, one of which, the senior play,
"Betty's Last Bet," drew, undoubtedly, the largest crowd that ever attend-
ed a high school play.
Our average in grades has been superior to that of all other classes in
this school during the past three and one-half years and still continues
Lois Satterfield and Robert Cornelius are breaking all records of G.
H. S. by graduating with nineteen credits each. Thomas Jenkins is doing
likewise with eighteen and one-half. '
We have reported more news through the agency of Eulah Morris,
Denzel Edmonds, and Robert Cornelius, to the newspapers than any other
class that has ever been in G. H. S. High school notes have also been sent
to others besides the local papers, a thing which has not, heretofore been
done by this or neighboring high schools.
We are successfully making this annual with the greatest cost of any
annual ever made here and during the worst economic conditions this coun-
try has known for the last two decades.
The moral and social standing of our class is distinguishably pre-
Holding these truths to prove conclusively my first statement, we, the
senior class, leave you to go out and conquer in the world as we have con-

We, the Senior Class of 1922, of the Georgetown Township High
School, having attained the heights prescribed by our noted advisors and

Just imagine the ieeling that came over nie when I was invited to
join a reunion of old time friends. I happened to be in the vicinity where
l had attended high school. Uf course, my iirst thought was, "I wonder
how many of my classmates l will see or learn about."
I could hardly wait for the time to come. At last, however, it arrived.
1 was met at the station by Luda Barr. She was teaching school in a
neighboring locality and making a very successful teacher. Her goal was
twenty-five years and a pension. She was boarding with her old-time
friend, Mr. Warner. She told me about some of the others also.
Thomas Jenkins had joined a debating society and was carrying away
great honors as a very able debater. Fred Snyder and J otnam Lyon were
holding positions as chemists, trying to discover which chemicals are dan-
gerous and which are not.
By this time we were surrounded by hosts of familiar, yet strange,
faces. The old time greeting is heaitily accepted, and in a mo-ment many
are pouring out all the news to me.
Dovie Parker is married and is now living in sunny Califolnia. Her
high school dreams have finally come true.
Alta Powell, Denzel Edmonds, Robert Cornelius, and Geneva Rees
are members of an orchestra, traveling with a company, to see world sights.
Mabel Richardson, Thelma Jones, and Margaret Smith are traveling
salesladies. Mabel is working in interest of Grandpafs Tar Soap, Thelma
is selling 1930 model clothes pins and Margaret, high class perfumes. I
guess you never can tell how some people will turn out. From appearances,
all three are doomed to live a life of single blessedness.
Horace Stark is a very noted auctioneer. For a rapid flow of speech,
he cannot be beaten. He can sell more in one day than the average auc-
tioneer does in two.
Eulah Morris, so skilled in manual training, is now employed in a
large factory, making musical rocking-horses.
Ethel Muncy has been traveling for her health, but now she and her
husband are located in the Hawaiian Islands. She is a leader in many
activities there among the natives, especially in dancing. If Ethel could
have plenty of room she probably would become a good toe dancer. But
owing to crowded conditions, she has not taken it up as a pastime yet.
Kenneth Schecter, who was known as the giraffe of our class, now has
a position as a telephone lineman. He says that, owing to his height, he
was so used to staying in higher altitudes, he preferred to work in
the same. He surely ought to make a success at it because, since he always
looked down upon girls, this seems a very suitable occupation for a

Frances Mingee prefers stage life, in spite of all the proposals of mar-
riage she has received, acting a fashionable and dignified part, where it
is easy to fall in and out of love as one wishes.
Lois Satterfield, who was always the loader and first in the class, is

Orville Macklin, with his two large, heart-winning dimples, has finally

In their school years, they've done their best,
In athletics and in grades.
But still strive On to better, ere
They fall in unlearned shades.
In books, they've studied hard and long
And most of 'them survive,
Sustaining shocks from each one's card.
It's a wonder they're alive.
In football, basketball, and track
They've trained and worked, you bet.

THINGS WE SENIORS WOULD
LIKE TO KNOW
Why is it unanimously conceded that, if all the girls who chew gum
should whistle "Wabash Blues," that another amendment would be added
to the Constitution?
If the wireless telephone is like a bluish-green parrot, does the same
rule apply when a Freshman, Sophomore or Junior imitates a Senior?
Is noon the proper time to play checkers?
Why does a cafeteria romance always contain sentences like the fol-
"The pumpkin be your lawful bride,
You cantaloupe with me!"
"I do not carrot all for fame,
You cauliflower by any name."
You are the only blushing maid
That's currant now with meg
So lettuce, pray, have peas."

Why did the professor echo "Shan" when checkmated at the checker
Why was it that he became afterwards classified by the contestants
as "Harporhyachus Rufus" and "Mimus Polygottus"?
Why is it that a student always chooses the motto, Uignoratio elenchi,"
that is to say, "I understand the words of the question, but not the idea
for answerl "? n
lf a person were to give another an orange, he would say, "I give you
this orange." Why is it, if this transaction is ent.rusted to a Commercial
Law student, he would have to adopt this form: "I hereby give and convey
to you, all and singular, my estate and interests, right, title, claim, and
advantages of and in said fruit, together with all its rind, juice, pulp, and
pits, and all rights and advantages therein, with power to bite, cut, suck,
and otherwise eat the same or give the same away with or without rind,
juice, pulp, or pits, anything hereinbefore or hereinafterior in any other
deed or deeds, instrument or instruments of whatever nature or kind, what-
soever to the contrary in any wise notwithstanding?"

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Early in September of the year 1911, a class of little tots, about forty
in number, entered the primary with Miss Madden as their teacher. As
the years rolled on, we little tots became known as eighth graders. By
this time, we had lost some of our members and had gained others in their
places. We had grown so much we could scarcely realize that we had ever
been in the primary. Of the class that started in the fall of 1911, only
ten graduated from the eighth grade in 1919.
The next fall, we entered upon our duties as high school students.
We felt decidedly out of place and stood with our mouths open, like chil-
dren gazing at one of the seven wonders of the world. The work was
entirely new to us but we soon "got the hangi' of the new world, and
learned, among other things, that 2rCr-65 :11 was the queer kind of arith-
metic they had in high school. Some of the upper classrnen looked down
upon us with vastly superior airs but, after a few wceks, they settled down
and life went on quite peacefully.
The class enrollment is now twenty. Leo Thomas is our president,
Bernard Ward, our vice-president, and Edna Barr, secretary and treas-
urer. The social committee is composed of five members: Ray Whitaker,
Gladys Strader, Leola Hinton, Dale Bratton, and Belva Moore.
Our biggest social event of this year was our kid party. Almost every
Junior was present and took part in jumping the rope and in playing other
such grown-up games. And how the teachers did enjoy themselves!
Four of our members are football stars and several are taking part
in high school basketball. Next year, our boys will have one more year
of experience and we are expecting them to keep the old Georgetown High
School far in the lead during the football and basketball seasons.
This is the year we are going to show the people of Georgetown what
a real Junior play is like. The play to be given is "Nothing But the Truth."
Our greatest ambition will be realized next year when we become
Seniors. We intend to revolutionize school life and leave a wonderful
record of good grades, good times, and happy laughs with those who
remain behind. EMMA MILLS, '23.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
On the fifth of September, one thousand nine hundred and twenty
A. D., the Georgetown Township High School greeted a throng of new
members known as Freshmen. There were more than forty students in
this class, making it the largest in school. The first week proved very
adventuresome to us as we tried in vain to get a certain place at a cer-
Soon this class was organized into a social group under the leader-
ship of Miss Ruth Clark, with Serena Moore as our first president. We
were well represented in football by Theodore Hires and Lynn Rucker.
At the close of the football season a freshman basketball team was organ-
ized which was triumphant over all whom they encountered. The fresh-
man girls also represented their class well in basket ball. In the mean-
time the class had lost three of its members, namely: Alta Davis, Wes-
berry Brooks, and Grace Shipps.
The next year, feeling greatly our advantage over the new students
in the high school, we entered upon our duties as Sophomores. Our "social
circle" was now reorganized under the supervision of Miss Zola Clark
and Maxine Smith was elected president. In football, the Sophomores
now showed their growing strength, for they were represented by twice
as many men as they had during the first year. An attempt was made to
have a sophomore basketball team but it failed, because there were too
many other basketball organizations already formed. Our girls were quite
successful in basketball this year. Our team, the "Snappy Six," won
every game of the season and took first place in the tournament as a result.
The school work was proven a little more difficult, but, by working
hard and keeping our courage strong, we have succeeded thus far. The
rest of our history lies a blank before us to be worked out, day by day,
to a bright and glorious end. ALEX RADoMsK1.

It was many and many a year ago,
In a school house under a tree,
That a class there went whom you may know
By the name of Primary.
And this class lived with no other thought
But to learn what we hear and see.
The teacher's not half so happy in school
When teaching you and meg
Yes !-that was the reason, as all kids know,
In this school house under the tree,
That the teacher came down from her desk sometimes,
Shaking and spanking you and me.
I was a kid and the rest were kids,
In this school house under the trees,
But we learned with a zest that was wonderful,
I and the other kiddies.
With such good results that the other ones
Envied them and me.
And the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the school house under the tree.
And the stars never rise but I feel the fierce eyes
Of the teacher looking at me.
But, though years have passed, I'm still green as grass,
For only a Freshman I be.

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
On September 8, nine years ago, numerous mothers, scattered all over
the city of Georgetown, combed hair and tied big, ribbon bows on immacu-
late, little girls, and fixed various colored ties on stiffly starched, little
boys. Then, as a bell rang out in the distance, they shooed their charges
out of the door and breathed a sigh of relief as they saw them disappear
in the distance, bound for that glorious institution known as the Wash-
ington Public School.
The school life of this class was similar to that of every other. They
passed rapidly from one grade to another, losing and gaining members,
until, when they graduated, very few of the original pupils were left.
Their first appearance at high school was not one to be forgotten.
Having heard that certain formal acts, known as hazing, would accompany
their admission into that honorable institution, they worked themselves
into the highest pitch of excitement, only to be assured by the superin-
tendent that hazing was not to be allowed. Nevertheless, they afforded
fun for the older and more experienced students, as they ran from room
to room like sheep, lost from the protecting fold.
But no pity is shown a Freshman and we bore the persecution with
grins and the best grace possible. Though it took several weeks to take
away the strangeness of high school life, after the first party the tension
was somewhat relaxed and we began to feel more at ease.
Many of our boys show promising prospects in football and track.
We are no longer mistreated by the upper classmen for the days roll swiftly
by and, after all, it will not be long until we shall be full-fledged Seniors.

HOUSEHOLD MECHANICS CLASS
A girls, manual training class may seem very unusual, but it is not
so in our school. This new course was begun this year as an experiment,
and it has proven to be a great success. This class is open only to Juniors
Often such a subject is considered uninteresting, but, from our point
of view, it is, indeed, a very delightful class. It is a welcome change from
our regular work and is restful to the mind.
This course was designed, primarily, to make a practical housekeeper
of every girl. It is intended to give only general training in such things as
accuracy, neatness, and manual skill.
There are ten of us in the class and We can saw wood, chisel, and get
glue and paint over us as well as any of the fellows. We have finished
many good looking projects, among which are porch swings. jardiniere
stands, book cases, costumers, electric table lamps, and fibre footstools.
Being a member of this class, I would certainly say, "If any girl Wants
to join a class of real workers, join the class of household mechanics in
the Georgetown Township High School."

and various small cabinet projects.
The work in our shop is carried on in as practical a manner as possible
with the necessarily limited shop facilities. The object of this class is to
extend the industrial horizon and experience and to contribute to the all-

This year, a course in agriculture was introduced in accordance with
the Smith-Hughes plan, whereby the school receives partial reimbursement
from the state.
Throughout the entire year, much interest has been shown by boys
from town as well as by those from the farm. The course is made more
interesting by numerous trips to farms where the boys may see the prin-
ciples in actual operation.
There are two divisions in this course, the animal husbandry' class
and a class in soils and crops. The former studies the judging, feeding,
breeding, management, and marketing of live stock. The boys are taught
how to pick a good specimen by actual judging, with the score-card and
by comparison, as well as by the study of the text book. They are taught
how to balance a practical ration and the proper system of feeding that
enable the farmer to make a profit with live stock. The superiority of
pure-bred stock over the mongrel and "scrub" is shown. A study is made
of the trend of prices throughout the year to ascertain the best time to
market the stock.
The members of the class helped Mr. Holaday in planning a hog-
house. Each drew plans and Mr. Holaday selected the one he thought best
suited for his purpose and awarded the winner of the contest a cash prize
of five dollars.
The class attended many hog sales and competed in a judging contest
at Telling Brothers' hog farm at Danville.
The soils and crops class makes a study of the elements of fertility
of the soil, the test of soil acidity and organic matter, the improved sys-
tems of soil treatment, the rotation of crops, in which legumes play an
important role, the types of soils best suited to the various crops, the best
varieties of standard crops for different purposes, methods of seeding,
culture, harvesting, and marketing of crops, grading, and testing of seed,
innoculation of legumes, methods of gardening, and the pruning and spray-
ing of fruits and vegetables.
The class has made a large hotbed and has tested seed corn for a
few farmers of the community.
In this course, a project is required, consisting of six months of prac-
tical farm experience. The members of the animal husbandry class have
pigs and chickens for projects and those of the soils and crops class have,
largely, gardening projects.
An Agricultural club has been organized, the object of which is to
promote vocational agriculture in the school and at home and to cultivate
among the young people of the community a love for the open country, the
farm life, and the country home. FRED SNYDER, '22,

THE ZOOLOGY CLASS OF '21
"Tomorrow, you may make a drawing of the mosquito," announces
Deep, heart-rending groans are the response. Someone is heard to
murmur, "Oh Gosh! what next?"
"Wednesday, we shall go on a field trip and start our insect collection."
Immediately every one regains his cheerfulness.
These excursions are taken once or twice a month and give the stu-
dents an opportunity for collecting their fifteen insect specimens which are
to be mounted and placed on exhibition in the class room. These nature
studies are happily seasoned with an ample amount of fun, keeping every-
one in pleasant anticipation of the next trip.
Three hours a week are spent in laboratory work which consists of
the dissection and drawing of various kinds of insects and animals, and
the studying of their habits. The means for destroying harmful insects
and the protection of useful ones are considered in this work.
In the textbook, every phase of the life of insects and animals. as a
whole, is studied, closing with the study of birds.
The class of '21 was small, but under the guidance of their friend
and teacher, Miss Ruth Lauer, the students enjoyed the work and learned
many things which they will find very useful. EVERETT HOLWICK, '24,

"G" MEN FOOTBALL
ORVILLE MACKLIN, L. H. B., Captain. '
All "Shack" ever needed was a little interference. He did the rest.
LESTER DUNIVAN, R. H. B. I'
Lester worked three years on the scrubs. His work on the varsity
the fourth year was a tribute to perseverance.
DENZEL EDMONDS, F. B.
Denzel came back after a year's absence and played a great game at
full back. '
EARL LYON, R. G.
It took Earl three years to decide to play football, but when he did, he
made the best guard in the Wabash Valley.
IRA HALL, L. T.
"Ickey" was always there. His opponents knew it as well as his team-
THOMAS JENKINS, L. E.
"Jenks" was a wildcat at end when it came to tackling. They all
look alike to him.
HORACE STARK, R. E.
Stark never missed a practice or a tackleg what more could be said?
HERBERT THORNTON, R. H. R. '
"Herb" Was known as the midget half back. He was the fastest man
on the squad and covered himself with gloryin the Danville game.
ROBERT THARP, F. R., Manager. ' ,
"Bob" was injured in practice after the third game. The team lost
a very valuable man.
ROBERT SNAPP, Q. B.
"Bob" has been learning for three years to play quarter back. Next
year he should be an all-state man.
KENNETH SHECTER, R. G.
'fSheck" was a good man at guard, but was forced out by injuries.
LEO THOMAS, R. T.
Tommy was a hard working "smasher." He is next year's manager.
IVAN PATTERSON, Center.
"Pat" played every minute in every game this season. He will lead
the team next year.

THEODORE HIRES, R. T.
"Ted" was one of the mainstays and a real fighter. We missed him
and his war cry after he became a casualty.
CARLOS DORNBLASER, F. B.
"Jack" spent this season learning how. Next year, he will be a real
asset to the team.
"3 R" should make someone hurry for a half-back position next year.
MARION M UN C Y
The sort of a player who gladdens the heart of a coach-he takes to
football like a duck to water.
Holwick never played before, but he has two years in which to show
some real football.
Robert should be valuable material for next year's team.
THE 1921 FOOTBALL SEASON
With more material on the field than ever before and a stiff schedule
ahead, Coach Bowen put the squad through a severe work-out and hard
practice and secured a strong, fast team for the very beginning of the
HUTSONVILLE-0 SEPTEMBER 24 GEoRGETowN-47
As a result of the extensive gruelling, the squad proved that it had the
"pep" and "punch" by severely mauling Hutsonville in the first game of
URBANA-0 OCTOBER 1 GEORGETOWN-7
Our fellows overcame such trifling disadvantages as a muddy field,
extraordinary avoirdupois, three teams and unheard-of odds when they
walloped the giants of the metropolis to the tune of 7 to 0 and showed that
old Georgetown's "hicks" were real players. Horace Stark and Orville
Macklin starred and saved the game for for us.
BEMENT-28 OCTOBER 8 GEORGETOWN-0
Over-confidence played havoc with our teamwork and Bement's heavy
team did the rest. But as a result, the next week was one of stiff practice
and the team was again whipped into shape in readiness for the Dan-
ville game the following Saturday.

DANVILLE-14 OCTOBER 15 GEORGETOWN-14
And the band played "There'll be a Hot Time in the Old Town To-
night" and there was, as well as before night. A new prohibition was
invented by Danville, namely, that it is unfair to make a touchdown on an
opponent's fumble. In spite of incomprehensible decisions and two touch-
downs for Danville in the first half, Georgetown's spunk triumphed and
we tied the score in the last half without any threatening fistic combats.
WESTVILLE-27 OCTOBER 22 GEORGETOWN-0
Before the largest crowd that ever witnessed a football game in Ver-
milion County, Georgetown met Westville on the latter's field in the cham-
pionship game of the county. Georgetown, although fairly defeated,
fought against vastly superior strength, doggedly, until the last whistle
PARIS-20 NOVEMBER 5 GEORGETOWN-13
A very good game and quite exciting during the last few minutes.
With the ball only a few inches from the goal line, the final whistle blew.
Although we came home with the little end of the score, we feel that we
outplayed them, by far.
WATSEKA NOVEMBER 12 GEORGETOWN
Game canceled by Watseka.
OAKLAND-6 NOVEMBER 19 GEORGETOWN-28
On an extremely muddy and soggy field, Oakland was the loser in a
well-played and interesting game. It was a happy evening up of old scores
when we completely swamped them and repaid them for their capture of
two Georgetown scalps in the preceding years.
ROBINSON-7 NOVEMBER 24 GEORGETOWN-7
"Certain" things always fail to come to pass and, consequently, great-
ly tooted Robinson failed to win a "Certain" victory. Robinson came to
us with an unrivaled record of no defeats or ties for the past three yearsg
she left us with greatly diminished prestige. In the first half, Georgetown
gave Robinson one of the worst thrashings she had received in years and
completely swept her off her feet. They had the ball only once in this half.
In the second half Robinson came back strong, with the result that they
tied the score in one of the hardest fought halves ever played on the 'high

In basketball, although it is not our specialty, our team made a good
showing in the 1921-'22 season, winning five of the eight games scheduled.
In the very first game, we gave Indianola the severe drubbing of 50 to
5, demonstrating the ability of our second team, as well as that of our first.
We lost a fast game to Paris because our guards were not provided
with stiltsg nevertheless, we pulled them down to a score of 18 to 12.
The game with Vermilion. Grove proved an easy victory for our
"baslieteers" who won 21 to 12.
From our respected rival, Westville, we gained a hard-earned victory
of 14 to 10.
First down and ten to go! Georgetown was unable to stop Simpson's
heavy line plunges and lost, in a second game with Westville, by a score
of 16 to 9.
That our team was a success was proven when we held Sidell, the
county championship team, down to a score of 7 to 6.
Long, fancy shooting won the game from Catlin and we carried away
the big end of the 24-13 score.
As is her custom, Georgetown came back strong in the last half and
the game with Vermilion Grove ended 17 to 6 in our favor.

PHYSICAL TRAINING .
"Chest up! Chin in! Forward march!" General "Gym" assembles
her cohorts of Freshmen and Sophomores on Tuesday and'Thursday even-
ings, rain or shine.
"Is tonight Gym night?" "Oh! Gee! I am still stiff and sore from
taking last time!" "Somebody's swiped my clothes l" "Where's the mas-
ter key?" This all goes with Gym.
Miss Clark puts the class through some stiff drills, or, at least we
think so. There have been visitors every evening and they seem greatly
amused at our graceful antics.
Last fall, the gym classes were held on the West campus. There We
played volley ball and baseball in addition to the regular exercises.
During the basketball tournament, the class was very small, the mid-
year Freshies and a few others being the only ones to attend.
The Spring work has been mostly given over to the practicing for a
May Day Festival. A May Queen is to he chosen from the girls of the
student body and each of us is secretly hoping that she will be the lucky

This play owed much of its interest to Peggy, whose part was very
cleverly portrayed by Frances. Kenreth, as the dashing young hero, finally
succeeded in winning Peggy's heart in spite of her Irish temperament.
Lois after much persistence, at last received the desired proposal from
"Anthony darlin'." Jotham, as anthony, the antique member of the en-
tomological society, helped make the play the great success that it was.
Robert played his part so convincingly that everyone was assured that the
motive of all his actions was "the good of the family."

Have you ever told the absolute truth for twenty-four hours? Of
course you haven't but did you ever attempt it? You would be surprised
at the difficulties you would encounter should you become George Wash-
ingtons. At least, Bob Bennett had the mose nerve-racking experience of
his life in his attempt to tell "nothing but the truth."
He has to tell a girl the truth about her hat, which isn't always the
easiest thing to do, as most fellows know, and he even told the cop, on
being pinched, that he was driving sixty miles an hour. Mabel and Sabel,
two vamps, along with Bob's truthfulness, nearly wreck a home. After
the twenty-four hours are up, he vows never to tell the truth again.

"BETTY,S LAST BET"
The senior class of '22 again convinced us of its dramatic ability when
the play, "Betty's Last Bet," was presented, February 24. Eulah Morris
found a part well suited to her ability in the aggressive, middle-aged
widow, Mrs. Darling, mother of four lovely, young girls, Betty, Kitty,
Dolly, and Peggy. These girls, Darlings though they were, were very
perplexing problems to their dear mother, principally because of the fact
that in the quiet, little village in which they lived, "all the men were either
married or impossible I" Mrs. Darling was doing her best to overcome the
difficulty when in blew Betty, whose part was taken very creditably by
Frances Mingee. Betty's greatest fault was that she had a perfect mania
for betting which was continually getting her into a "scrape" Of course,
the family was amazed and somewhat confounded fespecially Mrs. Dar-
ling! at the tale of adventure, a tale of a bet and a wonderful man who
had rescued her from prison.
Her story finished, who should appear on the scene but the hero!
Betty made known to him the sad fate of her sisters and he promptly bet
her three kisses that he could secure for them three perfectly good hus-
bands. Pretending to the sisters that he was their cousin Edgar, he then
set about to prove that he was as efficient at match making as he had been
at rescuing his lady. By his clever manipulation of aiairs, the wealthy
Richard Wentworth begged Kitty to share future happiness with him.
Horace, as the Hon. J. H. Hamilton Moriarity, a rising young politician,
was rushed intoa proposal to Peggy, though he scarcely knew it happened.
Herbert, playing the part of the lovelorn, 18-year-old Percy Wentworth,
was finally convinced that Dolly was the one in this World made for him.
Then, after Jack received his three kisses from Betty, he introduced
the happy family to the future Mrs. Jack Van Loon, and, despite the un-
timely arrival of the real cousin Edgar, the play ended beautifully, with
everyone happy, except Hannah, who hated men and could not see any
use in having any around. As the curtain Went down, one could almost
hear in the distance the tinkling of wedding bells and the soft rustle of
four white satin dresses.

The Junior-Senior banquet of 1921 was one of the pleasantest affairs
ever held at the high school. We gathered in the auditorium which was
very prettily decorated. Here, the entertainment consisted of piano and
vocal solos, and an amusing, little play.
Then we adjourned to the gymnasium. The decorating committee
had transformed the large room into a veritable fairyland. The gossamer
lattice work furnished a pink and white setting for the softly shaded
tables. The banquet, which consisted of four elaborate courses, was
served by the under class girls in a very efficient manner.
Professor Rees acted as Toastmaster. The program for the toasts
was "An Old Fashioned Gardenj' and a number of the students and faculty
very wittily responded to such toasts as "Potatoes," "Sunflowers," "Bach-
elors'-buttonsf' and other kindred topics.
Harold Richie, the president of the senior class, presented to Mr.
Rees a gift from the Juniors and Seniors, as a token of their esteem and
their appreciation for the kindnesses he had shown them during their years
in high school.
The first of the social events of the year was a community party,
which was held at the High School. This was a "get-acquainted" party,
given in order that our new Superintendent, Mr. Black, might become
acquainted with the people of the community.
During the earlier part of the evening, an interesting program was
presented. Piano and vocal solos were rendered and short talks were
given by Rev. Keenan, and the Hon. Wm. P. Holaday. Following these
was a talk by Mr. Black, in which he expressed his good will toward the
people of the community and asked for their co-operation during the com-
ing school year. The remainder of the evening was spent in looking over
the building. ,
One of the most successful parties of the year was the Hallowe'en
Party given by the entire high school. Masqueraders of every descrip-
tion were present, from stuffed negro cooks to bright Spanish maidens,
making the color scheme quite a mixed one.

The eats were in keeping with the season, for we had pumpkin pie,
doughnuts, apples, and milk.
Many snappy games were played and fortune telling was the principal
attraction of the evening. Just before adjournment, a Weird ghost story
was told and we all departed declaring what a "perfectly wonderful" time
we had had.
The jolliest affair of the season was a party given by the losers in
the "Getowhis" contest, which was held on the night of December 23. Of
course, the program and decorations were in keeping with the Christmas
The annual party in honor of the football men was combined with
this. The majority of the football squad was present and the "G"s were
awarded to the fortunate winners. Coach Bowen gave a detailed review
of the '21 football season. Mr. Black then told us of an interesting foot-
ball game, the account of which he had found in his study of source
After the refreshments had been served, several were called upon for
extemporaneous speeches upon appropriate subjects. These talks were
highly amusing and were a fitting close for a very enjoyable evening.
A vision bursts upon my sight.
What is it I behold?
It seems to me this scene's as true
' As daring pirates' gold.
The Gym is decked with royal colors of the purple and the white.
The High School orchestra is playing softly, sweetly, "Dreamy Night."
Gay couples round about are whirling in the clutches of the dance,
As now they "do the hesitation," "shimmy" at the slightest chance.
Around and 'round they go, repeating, in the circle two step's maze,
The olden forms of stately dances, flavored with the modern craze.
There's "Turkey Trot" and "Buzzard Walking," "Twilight Waltz"-
but hold they're gone!
And now I see them disappearing as they wildly "toddle" on.
I rub my eyes in wild amaze,
What was it? Oh, I guess,
It was a false, deceitful dream-
A dance in G. H. S.

AMELIA'S AFFAIR '
Mrs. Amelia Martin wrung out her mop, emptied her pail of water
down the sink, and proceeded to wash her hands in preparation for finish-
ing the evening meal. She glanced out over the back fences without
heeding the falling snow or rubbish heaps. Melia had other things to
occupy her mind this evening.
She had lost her husband three years before and had been left with
two girls on her hands. Susan was now eighteen and Clara was twenty.
Mrs. Martin had been very comfortable in her home, with her neat little
income and her two girls who worked in offices down town. To be sure,
she was sometimes puzzled by her daughters' manner of talking and their
rather shocking ideas and ways of dressing. But other mothers in the
fiat complained of their daughters in the same fashion and laughed it off
as the result of the time-s.
But Mrs. Martin had heard a bit of gossip today and this was what
was causing the wrinkle on her forehead and the tightly drawn lips. Mrs.
Clark, on the third flloor, had made her a friendly call that morning. In
the course of the conversation, she had asked, laughingly:
"Well, Mrs. Martin, you will have to be preparing for a wedding
soon, won't you ?"
"Why?" asked Amelia.
"My Cynthia says that Clara and Mr. Burton are keeping pretty steady
company of late."
"Oh, yes, I guess Clara does go out with Mr. Burton a great deal, but
he is only out of college and, I'm sure, not ready to marry yet."
"Only out of college!" exclaimed Mrs. Clark. "Why Harley Burton
graduated a great many yea rs ago. His son, Bob, graduated just last year."
Mrs. Martin's face slowly reddened. "I understand now it's the
father. isn't it? Why, I used to go to school with him. Oh, well, Mrs.
Clark," as she forced a laugh, "these girls of ours have funny ideas. I'm
sure Clara has no intention of marrying a man old enough to be her father."
This was the cause of all of Amelials anxiety. The conversation kept
running through her mind after Mrs. Clark had gone.
"I can't let Clara, my girl, marry Harley Burton," she sobbed. "Why,
she is only twenty and it would spoil all her youth. I would twenty times
rather she would be a young man's slave."
Then, as she heard the front door slam and the gay, Young voices, she
hastily dried her eyes and was her calm, unexcitable self once again.
"Dinner ready. mother ?" Susan asked as she stood in the kitchen door.
Mrs. Martin looked at her and thought how much like her father she
was. Clara, she couldn't always understand but Susan was her comfort
and her joy.

"Just a minute, dear," said Amelia as she deftly carved the roast.
"Have a busy time today ?"
So the dinner progressed, with Amelia smothering her sighs as she
listened to the girls' chatter. As the clock struck seven, Clara pushed her
chair back hastily.
"Is the Romeo calling again tonight?" Susan asked with impish
delight. I l . f 55.444195
Clara turned sharply. "Never you mind, miss. You're just jealous
because you can't find one as rich."
"Nor as old," retorted Susan.
"Who's calling, Clara ?" asked Mrs. Martin, just as if she didn't know.
Clara was clearly surprised. Her mother had never asked her that
question since she first started having callers.
"Mr. Burton," she replied shortly.
"Not Harley Burton ?" said her mother.
"Yes, of the Burton and Smith Iron Works."
"Why, I used to know him when we were just youngsters. Let's see,
he must be almost fifty now. Why, I'd like to see him. I believe I'll come
Clara flushed painfully. "He's only forty-seven mother and he doesn't
look nearly as old as you do. And mother, I doubt if he would remember
you. You have changed a great deal, you know."
Mrs. Martin's heart sank. "Yes, I know I have Clara. Very well,
I'1l not bother you tonight."
She soon heard a motor car. Clara came flying down the stairs and
out of the door to be whisked away by a handsome, middle-aged man.
Ame1ia's heart overflowed. She buried her head in her arms and cried
as she hadn't cried for three years.
"Mother," cried Susan, as she put her soft, young arms around her.
"What in the world is wrong? I wouldn't care what that hateful old Clara
said about you changing so, and not wanting you to meet that old man."
Amelia lifted her head. "I don't care, Susan, only it is the truth. I
have let myself go, and I don't want her to marry an old man like that,
even if he is as rich as Harley Burton."
"Well, mother, I don't see how we can help it. She has decided to,
just as soon as he asks her and that looks as if it would be right away."
"We must stop it somehow." Amelia was almost frantic, "Can't you
' Susan laughed. "I can," she said. "You interest him."
"I ?" almost screamed Mrs. Martin. "Why, Susan, don't make fun of
your poor mother."
"I'm not," insisted Susan. "You're only forty-five, mother, and would
be a handsome matron if you were just dressed decently and had your hair
fixed a little. Please do. I'll help you all I can."

So right here was formulated a plan whereby Mrs. Martin was going
to save her daughter from an elderly kidnapper.
S X 3 X W
The next two weeks were busy ones for Susan and her mother. Luckily
for Clara, she was too absorbed to notice anything unusual in the air,
and, accordingly, she was almost struck dumb one evening when her
mother strolled into the living room where she and Mr. Burton were sit-
ting. Clara stared hard at this char-mingly groomed woman. Could this
be her mother? Almost impossible. She started to introduce her mother,
who waved her aside.
"I am well acquainted with Harley, my dear. We used to be young-
sters together." A A
Mr. Burton got slowly to his feet. He was plainly embarrassed.
"Howdy do, Amelia," he said, shaking hands rather limply. "Time
has been rather kind to you." It was a bad thing for him to say.
"Thank you, Harley," replied Mrs. Martin, sighing deeply. "And
you, too. But the ravages of time can be plainly felt by both of us, I pre-
sume. Let's see, I'm forty-five and you're forty-nine, aren't you?"
"Only forty-seven, Amelia, just forty-seven."
"Oh, yes, I remember now. Your son graduated from college this
spring, did he not?"
And so it went. That night after Mr. Burton had gone, Clara went
slowly to her room, puzzled by her mother's new appearance and attitude.
In Susan's room, Mrs. Martin was relating her experience while Susan
stuffed a pillow in her mouth to keep Clara from hearing her laughter.
"Oh, mother, you're a dandy. You must have made him feel like one
foot was in the grave."
"I tried to," said Amelia. "And I confess, Susan, that I never had
so much fun in my life. Why, I actually felt delight in talking about you
two girls just as if you were mere infants."
Two evenings after this, Mrs. Martin was talking to Susan who was
fastening a becoming dress for her.
"Hurry Susan! It is almost time for him. Be sure and keep Clara
away as long as you can."
"There you are, mother, and I hear Mr. Burton's car stopping. Hus-
tlef' and Susan pushed her mother toward the door.
Amelia reached the door breathless, with rosy cheeks and sparkling
eyes. When Mr. Burton entered, he glanced at her, a little disappointed
that it wasn't Clara, and then he looked again and promptly forgot his dis-
"Come right into the sitting room, Mr. Burton. You'll have to excuse
the appearance of the room, I'm afraid. Clara is so young and thoughtless
that she entirely forgot to put away the novels she was looking over. You
know, youngsters just dote on love stories where the hero is young and

Mr. Burton winced and wondered where Clara was. But he soon
forgot her because of the chai ming way in which Amelia entertained him.
When Clara entered, he found himself rather loath to suggest going for
the ride they had planned. -
"By gosh! I guess I'll ask them all to go,'7 he said to himself, and
he promptly did it.
"Why not get Bob to go with us, too?" suggested Mrs. Martin.
"Well, if I can find him," replied Mr. Burton, rather doubtfully. After
half an hour's diligent search, Bob was found at one of his clubs. He was
rather surprised to be rounded up by his father in this manner, but Amelia
and Susan soon had him established comfortably in the tonneau with them,
and he found himself actually enjoying the ride.
It came to be a regular thing for them all to spend evenings together
in this fashion, and Amelia looked forward to the Burtons' coming. As
for Clara, it was a puzzle to know what was passing through her mind.
Amelia would sometimes have pangs of a guilty conscience, but quieted
Six months of this, and one bright afternoon Amelia went into her
pleasant sitting room to greet Mr. Burton.
"Why, Harley," she said, "Clara won't be home from work until six."
"I know," he answered, "That is why I came now. I wanted to see
"That's different," laughed Amelia, though her cheeks flushed a bit
and her breath grew short. "What do you want to see me confidentially
about?" It had come. He was going to ask her for Clara, after all. Her
planning and scheming had been for nothing. But Harley Burton was
finding it a difficult task to ask what he wished.
"Why, er-Amelia," he stammered, "I-oh well, it is just this way.
I have seen what a remarkable woman you are and I would like-that is-
oh well, I want to ask you to marry me."
Amelia was dumfounded.
"But Clara," she stammered.
"Clara?" he asked in surprise. "Why she and Susan and Bob are
just mere children. We'll have to take them in hand and bring them up
right," and Amelia saw that his viewpoint had really changed and he be-
lieved as she had tried to convince him for the past six months. He was
now plainly trying to persuade her to be his wife.
"I'm sure Clara won't object. She likes me real well. Please say
'Yes.' Bob needs a mother and your girls need a father."
"All right," said Amelia, "I'1l marry you."
When the girls came in a little later with Bob tagging at their heels,
as was his usual custom now, they surprised a pair of very ardent, if not
very young, lovers sitting hand in hand before the fire. They were a trio
of astonished youngsters. Mr. Burton stood up and, after clearing his
throat several times, explained the situation to the children.

"Mother, I'm tickled to death," exclaimed Clara, throwing her arms
around her mother's neck.
"So'm I," accented Bob doing the same and shaking his dad's hand
at the same time.
"Well, I'l1 be blessed," Susan said in amazement, looking at Clara
and then at Mr. Burton. But her amazement flew out at the window as she
saw Bob and Clara slip out of the door arm in arm.
' "So that's how the land lies," she said, nodding her head to herself.
"No wonder Clara didn't have hysterics at mama for capturing her beau."
"Come here, Susan, and give us your blessing," Amelia said.
"Sure!" answered Susan, sauntering over to the happy couple. "I
couldn't have had a better idea myself, mama. I think it is just the thing
for you two to marry."
"Yes, you children need looking after,'l pompously asserted Mr.
"Think so?" questioned-Susan. "Just look at that," and she pulled
back the curtain. There they saw Clara and Bob sitting on the railing,
in happy oblivion of everything save themselves.
"Looking after, nothing," said Susan as she left the room. "Where
would you have been if it hadn't been for my idea, I'd like to know ?"
And Harley Burton' never did find out what the idea was.

AFTER THE STORM
CMet1'ical translation of Vergill
For many days the ocean o'er
They sailed, and on the Libyan shore
They landed, wearied and worn out.
For food they hunted all about.
Aeneas killed some deer, I think,
And with Sicilian wine to drink,
They had a feast which brightened things.
Aeneas soothed their sad heart strings.
And Venus' heart with pity seethed,
To see them from their home so cleaved.
She asked Old Zeus the reason why,
He sent this hatred from the sky.
They sailed on and on this way.
To Italy they came one day.
They stopped and built the city Rome-
At last they'd found a quiet home.

WHEN TUBBY WATERED THE ELEPHANT
It was a fine morning in the latter part of June that Tubby Fisher
heard the great news. His mother had sent him to a neighbor's on an
errand and, on the way, he met Chuck Woodruff driving some cows to
"Hello, Tubby," called out Chuck, "Are you going to the circus to-

"It's to be at Whitney by daylight tomorrow morning. Dad's goin'
to take me and Sis," he added importantly.
"Gee, Id like to go," said Tubby wistfully, "but I've got only thirteen
cents and that won't take me to a circus. Besides, I'd have to slip off."
It might be said here that Mr. Fisher had never seen a circus and he
couldn't understand why other people went and squandered money so fool-
ishlyg therefore, he never allowed his children to attend one.
Nevertheless, by the time the boys were ready to part, Tubby's de-
sire to see the circus had overcome the fear of his father's wrathg so he
decided to go.

Early the next morning, just as a tinge of gray in the east announced
the coming of the dawn, a small boy wriggled through his bedroom window,
hung to the ledge for a moment, and then dropped gently to the ground.
After a cautious glance around, he swiftly dodged behind some buildings
and, keeping these between himself and the house, he set out for the road
It was a little after sunrise when Tubby arrived at his destination,
tired but as eager as ever. The great white wagons had already been un-
loaded and the cages of animals were being placed in a huge tent. It was a
wonderful thing for a lad of ten to see the many strange things which were
brought forth from the wagons. By ten o'clock, everything was ready
and many people had assembled.
As Tubby passed a number of the circus managers, he heard someone
say that they would have to get a boy to water the elephant. "There's mf
chance to see the circus, free," said the run-away to himself g so he applied
for the job and got it.
That afternoon was a hard one for Tubby. After a few minutes of
hard work, he would sit down to rest. But, immediately, the peolle, who
had stopped to see the elephant, would begin to feed it peanuts, cookies,
popcorn, and other dainties. Of course, this only served to make the ele-
phant thirsty again and Tubby would hurry for some more water. Just
as he was resting after one of these trips, he saw that someone was feed-
ing Jumbo some more salted peanuts.
"That's it, feed him peanuts, consarn ye!" he muttered under his
breath, "You must think I need a lot of exercise I"
"Well, well, look who's carrying water, would you?" A voice boomed
out so close to Tubby's ear that it made him jump. He looked up, startled.
-There stood his father, mother, and sister, all looking at him with amused
smiles on their faces. But Tubby evidently didn't notice the smiles, for
assoon as he recognized them, he dropped his head and waited for the
I "Son, you may get someone to take your place and then come and see
the big show with us," said Mr. Fisher.
With a dazed look, Tubby obeyed and the rest of the day he spent
happily with his parents and sister. That night, Mr. Fisher declared that
it had been a great holiday and, to Tubby's surprise, he never mentioned
his running off. The children were sent to bed early that night and Tubby's
head had hardly touched his pillow until he was fast asleep. Tor liizn,
it was the end of a perfect day. EVERETT HOLWICK, '24,

else. We begin to plan for swimming pools, camping trips, baseball-

THE BAK RIVER REGION
During the many years that I have spent in exploring and prospecting,
it has been my good fortune to have visited, at one time, the Bak River
region. The memories of this extraordinary country are still exception-
al'y clear in my mind, and of the many explorations that I have made, this
has been one of the few, if not the only one, which has left upon me such
a profound and marked impression.
My first view of the dry river, known as the Bak, was obtained from
the summit of a gigantic rock that cast its weird, black shadows upon the
surrounding barren and sandy waste. It seemed as if this were a magic
tower and had sallied forth all its great strength to overtop the grizzled de-
fiance of its southern cousins, the long, serrated line of jet black peaks.
From this point of prominence, I saw the deeply eroded course of the long-
since dead river. Rolling, snow-white dunes covered, in part, the smoothly
carved and polished river bed that emerged from the now boundless desert
to the north.
There comes to me from the depths of a mighty canyon, which is of
to my right, the musical and monotonous murmur of a waterfall. I cross
the silty sands to the brink of a chasm. Here I am greeted by the clammy
coolness of the spray which seems to me a long-absent friend for it relieves
me from the sizzling heat of the desolate lands.
But my attention is arrested by the Waterfall. From over the preci-
pice, flows a contented, solid expanse that unfolds itself and glides like a
shadow through a glistening fog to the turbulent flood below. For the
distance of a mile, the great volume of water rushed down in cascades, and
then again flows along smoothly, resuming its majestic dignity and little
dreaming that it may, at some future date, become like the Bak, a dead
river, worthless except that it has once furnished a cheery vision for some
long-forgotten globe-trotter. JOTHAM LYON, '22,

OUR UNKNOWN DEAD
fTo our unknown soldier brought back from the fields of Francej
And they will bring him home,
Our unknown dead:
A soldier once, who fought for us, 'and bled,
Who gave his life, his hopes, his fears, his all,
And now we know him not.
Was he a son for whom some mother prayed?
An orphan, raised from earliest days by luck?
A man, who with a strong man's willing pluck,
Went over seas to help our righteous cause?
And now we know him not.
Was he a son from halls of luxury?
A boy who toiled from breaking dawn till night?
A man who hewed his way until the fight
Of justice called him? Thus he's gone,
And now we know him not.
So let us honor him,
Our unknown dead,
And with rich tributes deck his nameless bier.
May, in that throng, some mother's kindly tear,
Fall soft in passing for her own son's sake,
Because we know him not.

WILFREUS F OLLY
It was a beautiful June day. The bright blue sky was flecked with
Heecy, white clouds. Butterflies of brilliant hues flitted here and there.
Birds twittered in the trees and the air was pure, fresh, and invigorating.
On the top step of the Thrasher's back porch, Mary was seated, quietly
shelling peas for dinner. Now and then, She would glance down the dusty,
country road or stop to pet a small, black kitten, which was sunning itself
on the lower step. Somewhere in the house, a clock struck ten.
"It's about time for the mail, isn't it, mother?" called Mary to her
mother who was in the kitchen. She looked down the road and, seeing
a cloud of dust approaching, quickly set the basket of peas on the porch
and ran down the path to the gate.
"Good morning," she called as the mail wagon drew up before her,
"haven't you anything special for me this morning?"

"Well, now, I don't know. Let's see," drawled old Mr. Addison, as
he turned around and reached back into the wagon. After searching for
some time, he continued, "Heres the paper and a magazine and a letter,
but I guess it don't amount to much, advertisement or something, like
"Oh, it's for me," Mary cried as she spied the address. Then she
hastily tore it open and eagerly scanned the pages. A little later she
rushed into the house, banging the screen door behind her, and cried:
"Oh, mother, here's a letter from Maxine and she wants me to come
and spend two weeks with her. Please, may I? You know you promised
me a trip some place this summer and I have never been to Aunt Edith's.
Please, may I go ?"
"I don't know, Mary. Anything of that sort can't be decided in a
moment. This afternoon we will talk it over and, if we see that it can be
managed, you may go. Now go finish shelling those peas, it is getting

The Aldriches of Boston were very wealthy members of society and
they lived in a large, brick house in a fine residence district. Maxine was
seventeen and her brother, Wilfred, was twenty. Maxine, with merry
eyes of deepest blue, was plump and jolly. Her bright, fluffy hair stood
out in a halo and, when she smiled, her face lit up and a rougish dimole
appeared in either cheek. Wilfred and Maxine were very much alike but
he. unfortunately, possessed an ungovernable pride which was the subject
of much teasing on the part of his sister, whenever it became unusually
Today, as the family sat down to dinner, Wilfred was much annoyed
at Maxine who had appeared, at the last minute, in her tennis togs. Maxine
glanced with amusement at Wilfred's disaoproving face, and turned to
her mother, as she said, "Oh, mother, we had the most wonderful game
this afternoon. Ruth surely can swat 'e-m, but we played several deuce
gamesf' she added proudly. Her father watched her with pride in his
eves. "You know, Daddy," she went on, "they say I can serve pretty well.
You must come out and watch us some day."
"Maxine there's a letter for you. I think it's from Mary,"' her
mother said when she had finally stopped.
"Oh goody. where is it? I do hope she can come," cried Maxine as
she jumped up from the table and raced into the hall.
"She's coming! She's coming!" she called a few minutes later as she
entered the room, waving the open letter in her hand.
"Well, what of it?" asked Wilfred as he gave her a disdainful look.
"Ar country jake, without a doubt. She'll make a fine impression on our
friends, won't she?"
"Why, Wilfred Aldriche! I think you're mean! Although I haven't
seen Mary for about eight years, she writes the sweetest letters, and I
78 THE GETOWHIS
know she will not be a bit like a country jake." Maxine wound up with
gusto and left the room.
Two days later, Maxine, in the roadster, met Mary at the station.
Mary was just the opposite of Maxine. She was tall and dark and her
slim face was surrounded by masses of lovely, dark hair, which was done
low on her neck, in a simple, girlish style. Her dark eyes sparkled with
fun and the color came and went in her face as she gazed with interest
"Say, I have a plan in my head that will mean lots of fun if you're
game," challenged Maxine as they drove toward home.
"Of course I am," instantly agreed Mary, "I am going to make the
most of these two weeks. I intend to have all the fun going.'-'
"Well you see it's like this-you're sure you won't be hurt at what
I say ?-because I have to explain everything so that you will understand
"Certainly, I understand and I won't mind," was the ready answer.
Whereupon Maxine related how Wilfred had acted at dinner.
"Now," she concluded, "we'll just bring him down a notch or two.
If vou will plav the part of the country jake, tomorrow night at the party,
u'e'l1 make Wilfred forget his abominable pride. We must tell mother
and dad about it so they won't give it away. What do you say?"
"T say yes." laughed Mary. "It will be no end of fun and it can't do
any harm-that is, if your folks won't care."
The next morning, Wilfred was gone when the girls came down and
thcv did not see him at lunch. Conseouertlv. when Maxine and Marv
came down the stairs, ready for the party. Wilfred flattered Mary with
an amused and condescending look. but Quickly hid it for a more pleasant
one. He comnlar-ently extended his hand towards her but Mary. on the
other hand. rushed forward and threw her arms about his neck and fairly
vrcothered him with kisses.
"Oh, cousin Wilfred, I am so glad to see you I don't know what to do."
Wilfred roughly disengaged himself ard, with a thoroughly disgusted ex-
pression. hastened to get away.
"You girls had better hurry and get ready for the party," he called
leafk, giving Maxine a knowing wink and nodding towards Mary.
"Oh, we are all ready," Mary answered in an excited tone. "Don't
you think this dress looks swell? I found some old lace to baste around the
neck, where it was Worn out. Maxine hunted up this sash for me. Don't
you think it's perfectly beautiful, Wilfred?" she continued anxiously, as
she slowly turned around so that he could fully appreciate the attire.
Wilfred had turned around and was viewing Mary with a sarcastic
grin upon his face. He darted a look of "I told you so" at Maxine and,
without a word, he went to his room.
After his departure, Mary walked across the room to a mirror, where,

after having fully contemplated her reflection, she wheeled around facing
Maxine and cried:
"Oh, I do look a fright. I can't blame him for being peevedf'
"Well, you do look a fright," conceded Maxine. "That dress is simply
plastered with starch and the many different kinds of lace on it do not add
much to its attractiveness. The sash is streaked all colors from a pale
pink to a deep wine instead of being an old rose. But worst of all is your
hair. It looks awful! Wait here until I go tell Wilfred that he must see
after you tonight. Oh, but he'l1 rave."
True enough, he did "rave."
"Why, Sis, I can't go there among our friends and introduce such ai
country product as our cousin. I am not going. You can make some ex-
cuse for me to Robert."
"But you must, Wilfred. I have called them and told them about
Mary being here and I also told them that you would bring us over?
"Well, if you haven't made a mess of things, I must say! Oh well,
I'll go, but remember, young lady, this is the last time I act as escort
for our worthy cousin." .
When Wilfred and the girls arrived at Robert's home, about an hour
later, Wilfred walked up the front steps with the air of a martyr. Maxine
and Mary were almost convulsed with inward laughter.
It seemed as if they were the last to arrive, for the house was full.
Some one had just put a waltz record on the Edison and the room was
full of dancers. When Mary and her cousins entered, a profound hush
prevailed. All eyes were centered on Mary. Wilfred's face gradually
grew redder and redder. At last, with an impatient gesture, he joined one
of his friends, only to drag him out of the room to explain the terrible
After a few minutes, the fun was resumed and Mary was kindly
accepted, since she was Maxine's cousin. About an hour afterwards, Wil-
fred and his chum appeared at the door of the room. Wilfred had grown
calm and had made up his mind to go through with it the rest of the
evening and make the best of it.
There was a large group gathered around the piano, singing. The
boys joined them, although they did not sing. Wilfred, seeing his sister
alone, turned to look around to locate his cousin.
"Say," whispered his chum, "who's the new girl at the piano ?"
"I don't know. I can't see," Wilfred replied, at the same time stretch-
ing his neck to see who the pianist was. .
"Some dame," the other whispered.
"Sure is," Wilfred answered.
About this time, upon someone's sugvrestion that they dance, the music
ceased and the girl, rising, turned to speak to Robert who had been leaning
against the piano, watching her with admiring eyes and moving only now
and then to turn the music. The newcomer was indeed a radiant creature.

Her dark hair was piled high on her shapely head, and the soft tulle over
her blue dress seemed to float around her in a cloudy mass. Wilfred, watch-
ing her and Robert winding in and out among the other dancers, saw them
approaching the place where he was standing. Just as they came close,
she raised her eyes and he started ba5k in wonder, for it was no other
than Mary. Wilfred was still standing in dumb surprise when someone
touched his arm. He looked around. It was Maxine.
"You ought to go and dance with Mary," Maxine cautioned, "you
promised to be nice to her tonight, even if she is from the country," she
added with a wicked glance at his tragic face.
"Look here, Sis, what does this mean? I have a right to know."
"I will tell you when we go home," Maxine answered over her shoul-
der, as she walked away.
At the end of the dance, Wilfred singled out Mary and made his way
"Look here, Mary, as I am your cousin, you owe me one dance at
least,', he found himself saying with his accustomed humor.
"Why, of course, if you wish it," Mary answered with well feigned
surprise. "I had promised Robert, but I guess you may have this one."
After that, the evening passed all too quickly and, before they realized

right. It was all my planning," she continued. "Mary never would have
thought of it. When I met her at the train, she looked so nifty that I
couldnft help but think of what you had said about her at dinner. I thought
I would cure you of that over-dose of false pride, so I persuaded Mary to
act her part. She isn't one bit to blame and I am not one bit sorry we
did it. I have always told you that you would make yourself ridiculous
some day if you kept on."
Wilfred had not yet answered when they drove up in front of tl'e
"Well," said Maxine as she stepped out of the car, "why d0n't you
say something?" -
"I can't say much, can I?" he laughed, "but it was sure a cute trick.

deserved." THELMA B. JONES, '22.

"Oh, what is the matter, my son, my son?
Oh, what is the matter with you?
You seem to be worried and troubled, my dear, .
Oh, what can make you so blue ?"
"Oh, I had a love in a distant land,
As fair as angels three.
But, alas, sad news did come to me-
She was drowned deep under the sea."
"Oh, what will you do, my son, my son?
Oh what will you do about this ?"
"Oh, mother dear, I'll tell you what,
I'll give you a farewell kiss.

I've lost my darling maid.
I'll end this wretched life of mine
With my trusty golden blade."

And cut him in pieces three.
And after that, he surely was

A HALLOWEEN JOKE GONE WRONG
Farmer Brown, of Squash Center, owned an old, weather-beaten,
brown mule which he called "Greased Lightning," much to the amusement
of some of the village boys. Greased Lightning was Brown's favorite and
he always drove him to an old rattletrap that had once been a buggy and
which he considered the best of buggies yet. All the village knew when
Farmer Brown was coming because of the rattle of his buggy and the un-
even click of his steed's gait.
Hallowe'en was only a few days away. The boys in the neighborhood,
under the leadership of Pete Carson-a tall, lanky boy of about seventeen,
and a renowned coward-were planning a campaign against Farmer
Brown. Pete was going to whitewash Greased Lightning. He had several
confederates, mostly boys termed the "roughnecks" of the neighborhood.
They were all to be masked.
The night of October 31 came. At exactly 11 :30, the crowd appeared,

like magic, from behind a clump of trees in Farmer Brown's west pasture.
Of course, Pete, carrying a bucket of whitewash in one hand and a brush
in the other, led the gang. They walked up to Greased Lightning, who
was standing quietly in a corner of the pasture, and Pete was ready to
begin his work when a shot rang out on thelcool, night air. The leader
of the crowd heard a bullet whistle somewhere near his head. He did not
wait to see if it had done any damage, but grabbed the bucket and started
to run as fast as he could in the other direction. The whitewash splashed
all over him until he bore a striking resemblance to a fleeting ghost as he
ran, yelling, "O, I'm shot." The last the crowd saw of him, he was wildly
clearing a fence in the distance.
Back in the pasture, Farmer Brown walked from behind a nearby
tree, carrying a smoking gun in his hand. - The crowd was laughing up-
roariously. "Well, it worked, didn't it?", shouted one young man. For
some unknown U3 person had told Farmer Brown of the plot and he had
been well prepared, for, as he said, "We dont want no white mule 'round
here." MAXINE SMITH, '24,
Cheer-o, the worst is yet to comeg
Buck up, the race is not yet run.
Why, one would think
The lights of heaven were out,
By your long face.
What if things aren't just right?
It's courage wins the fight.
Why, one would think i '
There was no joy on earth,
By your long face.
I know life's hit you hard,
But stick to me, old pard.
Why, one would think
Your pal had left you, too,
By your long face.

A FLYING HOPE '
A diamond necklace, valued at one hundred and seventy-five thousand
dollars, had been stolen from the safe at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. F.
Evers during an evening reception which was given in honor of their
tenth wedding anniversary. It had, without a doubt, been an inside job-
that is, some guest at the reception was certainly guilty.
A light snow had been falling since the arrival of the guests and, when
Detective Jenkins came, in answer to the urgent summons, he reported
that it was snowing no longer. All around the outside of the house, the
snow was untracked and Jenkins ordered that no one should leave until
he had investigated. -
. He immediately went into the room where the safe was, followed by
Mr. Evers. The safe, he noted, had not been forced open but had evi-
dently been opened by someone knowing the combination. It was wide
open and papers were strewn all over the floor.
He turned and said to Mr. Evers:
"Did you have a copy of the combination anywhere about the house 'Z'
"Yes, sir. I have one in my desk."
"Go get it please."
Evers went out but returned in a moment and said that he could not
find it. Detective Jenkins only smiled.
"I expected it," he said.
At one end of the room there was an open window. To this Jenkins
made his way. He walked over and picked up something white from the
iioor, looked at it, and put it into his pocket. Then he glanced out at the
snow. It was unbroken. He went back to the safe and looked around
on the floor. Something caught his eye. He picked it up and it proved to
be a watch with the hands stopped at 9:15. He showed it to Evers, who
"Why I put that watch in there only two hours ago, running in good
"Then," said the detective, "we must conclude that this watch was
jerked out with the papers, unnoticed by the thief, and evidently stopped
when it hit the floor, thereby showing the exact time the robbery was
They walked back into the ballroom where the guests were gathered
in excited, little groups, talking about the robbery.
The detective said, "We regret very much having to hold you on this
account, but regret still more that we must make you all prove just where
you were at 9:15 tonight."
They were all able to present alibis except one nervous young man
who was continually smoking cigarettes. When questioned by the detective,
he merely shook his head and said he had been with no one at thatptime
but had gone into the garden for some air. But, when the detective found

no tracks to prove it, he was not surprised but walked on through the
garden to a clump of shrubs some two hundred yards from the house,
where he again picked up some white objects lying in the snow. Then he
sat down on a stump, regardless of the cold, and buried himself in thought.
Fifteen minutes later he arose, went into the house and stepped up to
the sideboard where the host kept his wine glasses and bottles and, think-
ing to warm himself after sitting, in the cold, he started to pour a drink.
After first removing a very queer patent top on the bottle. he tipped the
flask, but no wine came out. Then, suddenly, his face lighted up and he
picked up the patent stopper. It was of a very queer design. He thought
a moment and 'then called the host to 'him and showed him the flask and
its stopper, askinghhim if they belonged to him.
"They'do n0t,", the host replied, "and I cannot imagine where they
came from." ,
"Weill I can," Jenkins exclaimed and promptly disappeared into the
ballroom, followed by Evers. He stepped over to the nervous young John-
son and deftly slipped a pair of handcuffs on him. Johnson started to
protest, but Jenkins stopped him saying:
"I am sorry to have to arrest one of your guests, but here is the thief
of your diamonds. You see," he went on to explain, "I quite caught my
man by accident. In the first place, he knew beforehand that the necklace
would not be worn because this was not a very exclusive party, and so he
concluded it would be in the safe. I went into the room where the safe
was and picked up a piece of a white rubber balloon lying under an open
window. This puzzled me greatlyg so I went out to that stump to sit down
and figure. it out by myself. I was sitting over there when I noticed a small
blow-gun and tracks and more rubber lying around. This certainly got me
in deeper than ever but, soon becoming chilled, I came back here to get a
drink when I found a bone dry flask with a very ingenious top on it, on
the sideboard. Then it came to me all of a sudden.
"The thief had gone to Evers' desk, stolen the combination to the
safe, opened it, and extracted the diamonds. Then he took from his pocket
a flask containing compressed hydrogen and filled some rubber balloons
with the gas. Next he put the necklace in a pouch Which he fastened to
the balloons and sent them through the window. The wind did the rest.
It carried them past that clump of bushes and the accomplice shot' them
down with his 'blow-gun. I
"But thanks to Johnsonshaste, the pouch dropped od because he did
not fasten it well and I 'found it lying in the snow." and he pulled the neck-
lace from his pocket and handed it to the astonished Evers. "The accom-
plice thought someone had interrupted Johnson and that he had been
forced to replace the diamonds and had sent the evidence of his failure
through the window, so he skipped."
