MARQON AND WHITE SENIOR NUMBER '-G-H-5-'W To G. H. S. With a low bow and a humble air, we, the Class of 1920, pre- sent to the school and our friends outside its portals, this, the first year-book of the MAROON AND WHITE. In every page is a sincere, if unwritten, wish for the good of the school and every page fervently breathes the belief that you will carry forward all that is best. You'll find both sense and nonsense intermixed. Truly it is that way everywhere. We hand you a good-sized bite of plain, nourishing common sense and lest you choke on the size of the bite we furnish a clear, sparkling drink of jest and top off the whole repast with a salad of memories, just enough memories of play to make it delectable. It is our fervent hope that when our memorial has been pe- rused you will not be disappointed in your expectationsg and if, judging with leniency you will find it worth while, we shall feel repaid for our labors.

Our Mirror shows: In September, 1916, a merry band of sixty, sweet, young green things entered the spacious halls of G. H. S. Most of us felt quite small, realizing the great superiority of our upper-class- men. How happy we were when we all came in, Some real fat, and some real thin, We began our work with hic, haec, hoc. To be true and frank, this was no joke, Then too, We heard of b-1-c, m-1-n and x-1-z. But even then most all got through, Some staid behind, but very few. "Oh the horrors of that Freshman year." When we came out of that dreadful ordeal of the "finals," we were all haggard, worn and thin. But in the summer months we soon picked up all that lost flesh and energy. The next year came with troubles more. How well it sounded, "A Sophomore." It all Went w'ell for a little while, Then slack she came, with little guile. Oh how we struggled to reach the height, But to be a Junior was Worth the fight. We struggled on and on through those four years of High School, never ceasing our work when little difficulties presented themselves. But now in our Senior year, one will notice that there are only forty left. Where is the remainder of our class? Probably some have sacrificed themselves in the great world war, others have taken unto themselves a husband or "vice versa." Maybe some on account of change in circumstance have to earn the daily bread, and others perhaps have gently dropped behind and will appear again within. a year or two. Within our merry band of forty there are fourteen true blondes, and twenty-six brunettes. Our variety is seen in the leanness and stoutness of our class, for the whole of us weigh two and one-half tons. I- I4 And now those green things that have been growing for these past four year, have suddenly burst forth into perfect specimens of manhood and womanhood. Each one has a special ideal to live up to. Each one a different road to travel. If crossroads present themselves in this path of life, we must not follow them, but continue in the same straight and narrow road with which we began. Throughout our four years' work in G. H. S. we have had nothing to benefit us more than the great "World War." We have learned that "Experience" is the great teacher, and have been taught lessons of sacrifice, by bearing the burdens of the war. We have become proud of our country, and know that she is loved at home and revered abroad for the way in which she has shared these new and unaccustomed burdensf She has shown an efliciency that makes every American even prouder than ever before to say, "I am an American." Are we as a class who are almost ready to step into the heart of the world and pick up the thread of life and hard Work that has been previously dropped by one who has finished his life work, going to help in problems of peace as we did the problemsof war? Insteadfgoff entering a life of uselessness, we need not only to alleviate the political and social unrest in our own country, but also to heed the appeal borne to us on the waves of the Atlantic, to use our resources to build up our sister countries. . And now that our school days are over we are "Where the' brook and river meet." We will stand at the boundiikiify line-bei tween two epochs of civilization. In later years people will look back on the present time and will say that the war of the twenti- eth century was the parting of the way, the division between the old and the new world. We must not think at present of the good times we will have in the future, for now our thoughts must be more serious, for we are looking into a future that is filled with great events, and we wonder where our footsteps will lead us. We think that we are better equipped and more able to cope with the wor1d's diflicul- ties for the war has taught us to be more sympathetic and self- sacrificing. ' r LOUISE BENDER.

Shades of Alexander the Great! What have we with us now? After glancing over this array we'l1 say 'Orace F. Harmor" has our old friend Wm. G. McAdoo backed off the map. He is deeply in love and we sincerely hope this is no hindrance to his after life. The class of 1920 wishes a successful career to their retiring leader. "Hal Jack Dempsey? Who's he?" MARY HYDE APPLER HADPSH Household Artsg Cloverleaf. Now what have we here? A per- son of small stature, shall we say a brunette? Fair maiden, why have you selected this course? This lass, made her debut when she posed as a fortune-teller at a recent society meeting of the Cloverleaves-when she held her audience spell-bound. May we suggest a few things for you? A trained nurse might be needed at the Jefferson Hospital, a dietition in some hotel, say the Ritz- Carlton, or some nice young bachelor might need a house-wife. "Good goods come in small pack- ages." I6 SARAH LOUISE BENDER "slim" Commercial Course, Cloverleaf. Oh! what a laughable lass is this member of our class. Has any per- son seen "Slim" with a frown lately? Not often do we find her looking "grouchy" unless it is for some good reason, say her report, etc. But "Slim," such is life, we cannot all have our names on the honor roll, and besides you'll have lots of company. You have shown your great ability as an editor of the Cloverleaf paper. Where, fair maiden, do you find such good material to slam the "Palms"? Her future lies in high ideals, and we certainly hope that she finds her- l self probably a secretary to the next president's wife. Who knows? We, her . . classmates, join in wishing her every possible success. JESSIE MAY BEARD lSJesS9I Classical Courseg Palm, "Deacon Dubbs"g "Line Busy." Behod this blonde, dancing nymph! Always chewing gum to keep time with her dancing. Has any one ever passed "Jess" without hearing some Door chap's name mentioned Fellows, fellows, all the time They follow her to school, The teachers warn her every day That it's against the rule. This little maid is one of our true Palms and we give her great credit for her role in "Line Busy" as Stut- tering' Gladys. "Jess," thegreat world looms up before you. Take heed else you make a false step. As a clerk in the State Cap- itol we wish you great success. "The flighty purpose is never o'er- took." I7 . f MARY BERCAW Commercial Courseg Palm. One of the forty in our class is a quiet little lady so modest and shy that we hardly know that she is with us, until she is called up to give her knowledge on the subject in question. We not only preceive that she is apt but that she is also unusually quick. The fact that she leads her class in typewriting will affirm this. We can little dream what a girl with this ability will do in the business world, but we have all reason to think she will "hitch her wagon to a star." "A joy from Mt. Joy." 7-G-H-5. GILBERT YEATTS BELL HGib!! Commercial Courseg Cloverleafg William Carr in "Stop Thief." Gib is a good scholar with a long list of good marks to show his efforts in G. H. S. We notice with pride that he has overcome the habit of absent-mindedly picking up things, which he acquired during practice for "Stop Thief". He has not yet de- cided in what line to bend his future ambitions, but We wish him the 'best of success in whatever line he may follow. A "So wise, so young they say." 18 'G'H'S', I ,l KEITH P. BURGER 'fBurger" Scientific Coursey Cloverleafg "Line Busy"g "Stop Thief." Keith, you have given us the sur- prise of our lives. Whoever thought that you would be "put up" for sale? Don't sell yourself so soon, Keith, as there may be more fair bidders. Alas! you yourself may have to sell some things such as shoe-strings, collar buttons, etc. Good luck Keith. "The very pink of courtesy." HOWARD PALM BERRY Cassical Coursey Foot-ballg Bas- ket-ballg Base-ballg "Stop Thief." "There is a devil in every berry of the grape," says the Koran. Koran was wise. Did it not forsee the development of wickedness in Berry? Yes, more, in every Berry, which means on down to the fifth, and sixth generations. Whew! What a lot of scoundrels the Berry tribe will be! But our Berry is a nice likable chap despite the Koran, even if he is a human telephone pole.. Howard has figured in many accidents, one of which is worthy to noteg he solved a Trig' problem the other day. Adieu! Sweet grape juice. 19 -c-H-s- MILO FREDERICK DIEHL Scientific Coursey Cloverleafg "Little Clodhoppervg "Deacon Dubbs." Milo joined us in our Freshman year, after having attended grammar school at Orrtanna. In fact he is one of our greatest actors. He so successfully took various- parts in plays ranging from a simpleton to an Episcopal minister, which shows also rare ability in that line. In spite of the fact that Milo is an ar- tist he is planning for himself a strictly business career and in carry- ing out his plans he expects to attend a business college and there we know he will be welcomed as we have wel- comed him. "Lives of great men all remind us -We can make our lives sublime." CHARLES ROBERT DEARDORFF HB0b97 Classical Course: Cloverleafg Trap Drummer-Orchestra G. H. S. He1'e's a good-natured chap, who hits and rattles and bangs the traps. He was knocked down aeons ago by a bum, and ever since has vented his rage on a drum. He's a classical, but one of these days little ole New York is going to call him "Bob Jazzer," see if it won't. He is a specimen of the Cloverleaf family, too, who is quite proud of its Jazz-bud. "Rest dem bones." 20 L-, C. REX GILBERT URexl9 Scientific Courseg Palmg Orches- tra-Trombone. Rex is about the liveliest boy in school, especially in the morning when he comes to school about 8:30 to study UD. He is an accomplish- ed "fiddler" and he has also shown ability as a trombone artist. He expects next year to study elec- trical engineering, and we are won- dering' whether he will be leading an orchestra or electrifying a pole. "Early to bed and early to rise Makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise." ELIZABETH CAMPBELL EVANS uBettys1 Classical Courseg Secretary Clover- leafg Treasurer 19193 "Line Busy"g "Stop Thief"g First Prize D. A. R. Essayg Cloverleaf Chorus. This young lady came to our young city from Philadelphia. She evi- dently likes our town because she seems perfectly contented. She has been a beacon light in our high school life and her acting has been excellent in plays and otherwise. She won the first-prize in the D. A. R. essay and her name enters the High School Hall of Fame. "Are there no more worlds to con- quer?" 21' H'S' ESTHER VIOLA HARTMAN "Esther" Classical Coursey Cloverleafg Or- chestra-Pianist. Yes, Esther is a wonder at love- making. She has those luminous eyes, cheeks like roses and lips like cherries. But then there isn't much wonder at that because she knows that all she has to do is smile and say "Hello" and she has 'im. But who knows but what she will be a minister's wife some day. "All the world loves a lover." Commercial Course, Palm, Line Busy." Now, who's coming? Have mercy, Sir Cupid, it's "Hoky" "Hoky" on the light fantastic toe. Our fairest and curliest blonde has some vari- gated accomplishmentsg for instance besides being an alto genius "Trixie" can Hirt something like the chatter- ing monkeys in the primordial stage! "Hoky" has an altrustic survey upon life: when entering into commercial life she is going to help herself to a boss fhelping the individual, you know--that's an altruism.J May she get thin in the process. "Gangway there!" l 22 MARTHA B. LENTZ "Martha" MARY REBECCA KISSINGER "MARY" Scientific Courseg Cloverleafg Cloverleaf Chorus, "Line Busy." Our dear little, modest Mary. She is such a quiet creature and there- fore she is loved by all her friends. She likes fun and plenty of it but "Ever at work, with no time to play. But wait, except when the teacher's away." "Mary, Mary, quite contrary." Classical Courseg Palmg fllianistjg "Little Clodhopperng "Line Busy"g "Stop Thief". From her name you would never know her. 'Marthasn should be se- date, but not this one. It's just one giggle after another. The town quarters were too close, so Martha moved to the country this spring in order to have the necessary space for her growth. She wants to get good and strong because she is going to D!'0D0sc next Leap Year, she says. "There is no crown in the world as good as Patience." 23 occ FLORA ALICE MIZELL i "Flora" ' Commercial Coursey Cloverleaf. This young mighty vastness of the district sur- rounding the Harrisburg' road. We heard that she was instrumental in convincing the state that this road should be made better, this story has never been authenticated but we are glad for every little help. Flora intends to enter business, just what kind of business can not be found out. Probably raising chickens on her father's farm. Flora has never given the teachers much bother, be- ing' one of our quietest students. lady comes from the "Business before pleasure." H ' S ' MARGARET McAKNIGHT MAJOR t6Peg91 Classicalg Cloverleaf. Margaret eats, drinks-and studies Latin. No. I forgot, she studies all branches. Yes, Margaret is the one mainstay of the class, and, as you see, "Peg" is surely making use of her time. Margaret is a bright and happy girl, raised upon corn cakes and apple pies of Straban Township. Find her next year at Wilson College. She says she will gladly welcome her old cronies there. "What is more fair than a Straban Township lassie?" 24 eco JAMES LEE MUMPER KO-lim!! H Commercial Coursey Cloverleafg Stop Thief"9 senior Boys Glee Club. Jim comes from a long line of meritorious Mumpers. He entered School in his Freshman year but We did not know he was here until in the Junior year. If all the pupils EFVG the teachers as little trouble as Jlm they would be in their seventh heaven of delight. Jim has chosen business as a career. Because of his Wonderful work in "Stop Thief," we believe he would make a good cop. "By Heck, Hiram, it looks like fain." HQSQI4 ROBERT MEANS E MORRIS NB0b!l Commercial Courseg Cloverleafg So- ciety Debater. Here comes one of our sprightly young men-folks, class of 1920. Would you think to look at him that he possesses one great virtue, that of promptness His motto is "Never say die." Don't worry, "Bob." you might become an orator sometime. Nobody knows. May we suggest that you take unto yourself a wife, that is if you become a pharmacist, for she will keep you from flirting with the pretty girls that happen in your drug store and she will also drum up trade when busi- ness seems dull. At any rate may success be yours. "Endure toothache patiently." 35 X CHARLES WILLIAM OGDEN uoggien Commercial Courseg Palmg Senior Boys Glee Clubg Orchestra. When you look upon this piece of human intellect you are looking' upon a future president of the United States. After analyzing his features we can see only this small outlet for his wonderful ability. How we will miss the shrill notes of his clarinet! Oggie was the shining light in the "String and Reed Orchestra." Old G. H. S. will miss Oggies love affairs, as they have afforded a continuous topic for gossip. "In the spring the young' man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love." ALICE M. MUNSHOUR "Alice" Classical Coursey Palmg "Line Busy." Alice is worth her weight in gold and that's a lot for she weighs-. That's a secret and its going to stay one. To tell the truth this classmate of ours is going to lose some of her superfluous weight when she stops going to school where their are such weighty matters to consider. Alice makes one proud of her for she is very studious. "Charm strikes the Sight, but Merit wins the Soul." 26 BEATRICE PFEFFER "Beatrice" Classical Coursey Palm. Beatrice is a very persevering girl and very kind. She does not deign to live in Gettysburg but steps across the line into Cumberland. She says it is much healthier. Miss Pfeffer is quite studious and has a serious air. Steinwehr. Avenue can testify that every morning she and her com- panion Treva, a'live1y contrast in size, wend their happy way to school. "May her steps never stray." ANNA MARY OYLER Domestic Scienceg Palm. This fair maid is much looked up to by all in G. H. S. It is she who is master of the whole art of putting things together and bringing out something which is really good to eat. How the boys envy her. She likes to teach others and perhaps that is the reason she is so much sought after by the boys. She does not use paint but is sometimes seen with a "Dauh." "She's beautiful and therefore to be woo'd." 27 G H'S' KATHRYN GRACE REASER "Kathryn" Classical Courseg Palmg "Line Busy." The neat, little miss of our class. She is extremely popular and you need not guess why if only you glance at her photo. Regard her dainty nose which she will not blow for fear of disturbing someone. She is very studious and is sure to be a winner in the game of Education. "All is not gold that glitters, it sometimes happens to be brass." HAROLD SHEARER ROTH Classical Courseg Palmg Orchestra 3-45 Palm Chorus. He is the only Senior boy who took Latin and at times we imagine he felt quite lonesome in class with so many girls to admire him. He has decided to go to college and further prepare himsef for conversation with Cicero and Caesar and perhaps to teach their doctrine some day. Go to it Rothy. "A lion among ladies". 28 MARGARET MALINDA SANDERS Scientific Courseg Palm. Margaret is one of our out of town pupils and although compelled to come all the way from Franklin Township, Margie does not dread the miles at all. At least not one Mil-o. We hope that when she goes back to Franklin that the citizens all will point with pride to the finished pro- duct of G. H. S. and send more re- presentatives to Gettysburg. "Lower not those eyes." CLARE ROUTSONG Scientific Courseg Palm. Clare is a conscientious lad who makes the world better by living in it. He is serious and never fails to see the good things in life and in people.

The mystery of June Was framed in its beauty by the silver of moon. The stars of pure pearl in a lacquer of blue Hung trembling, ethereal, evanescent and new. The garden was perfumed with lilac and rose And swayed to the melodies flowers compose. The lantern of silver that hung just above Shed a light fair and soft as the wing of a dove. The wind whispered love songs in accents'so sweet Each flower and fern courtesied low at his feet With eyes of devotion. The brook in its Wrapper of violet and green Hummed a lullaby soft to the flowers unseen. The dew-studded grass in the joy of the night Cupped the diamonds aloft in the sheen of the light. The spiderwebs silvered raised glittering on high A staircase resplendent that reached to the sky. From a corner remote of the haven so fair Came the tuning of crickets across the still air. Lo! the garden expectant was thrilled into life By the musical tinkle of fairyland's' fife And fairy commotion. A bright fleecy cloud through the wide pathless way Of the star-sprinkled heavens was burdened with fay. Down the filigreed staircase with laughter and mirth The whole fairy cortege descended to earth. Coruscant and airy they trod on the green Round the gem-crusted throne of their mistress, the Queen In dim twilight groves and in light-checkered shade They danced to the music the good crickets made. The mist of their wings in the pale, mellow light Made a rapturous vision of silver and white Enchanting to see. 37 ' They danced all the night on the smooth-shaven green. A picture, in faith, that no mortal has seen. No thought but the present, they reveled in mirth And enjoyed to the utmost their visit to earth. But hark from the distance a clear brazen crow. The cock giving warning that fairies must go. The birds' sleepy twitters were heard here and there. The sound of earth's wakening was borne on the air. The sun from his throne raised his round ruddy head. But he saw not a thing. All the fairies had fled. , And so now must we. We've danced, Class of '20, and sung all our life. We've been happy in peace. We've been happy in strife. We've fumed over studies and laughed over play In the bright light of youth that has glowed o'er our way. We've had filigreed stairways to climb and descend. Though they seemed not of silver they are in the end. On the smooth-shaven path of our days in H. S. We have all done our share, perhaps more, perhaps less. We know if our way has been straight or been bent If our days have been busy or idly spent. It's up to us all. If we've been the grasshopper instead of the ant. It's too late to mend and we know that we can't. The moonlight of '20 is now on the wane. We're near to the end of our dear High School lane. The clear crow of Life loudly bids us recall That the sun of Commencement peeps just o'er the wall. Take a last look at scenes reminiscently dear And remember the time of departure is near. Look ahead, dear old '20, at the future in store. When she beckons and points to the half open door. Go answer the call. ELLEN TIPTON 38 Pictures "to Be" "We're Dreaming Dreams" One fine evening, as I was sitting by the fireside and reading some books from the library, I came across a very old one with a very strange title. While reading this book, DeQuincy's "Con- fessions of an English Opium Eater", I seemed to imbibe some of the marvelous spirit therein and before long I was fast asleep. As I slept, I dreamed, and my dream carried me back through many years to my High School days and then back again to the present time and then twenty years beyond until it was somewhere in the year 1950. I seemed to be at this time in a large city with beautiful buildings and wonderful parks, through which ran many strange vehicles. As I was tired of walking, I hailed a-cab and as the driver opened the door something seemed to remind me that I had seen this face before. It was a broad face and somehow it looked more like a woman than a man, sure enough! now I recognized the driver. It was one of my old classmates, Floranna Hoke. I entered the cab and rode through the heart of the city, meanwhile Hokie was explaining the sights to me and asked if I would like to see the Old High School Building. I consented readily and we entered to be met at the door by a thin, oldish-looking man in spectacles. It was not hard to recognize this man. It was Gib Bell and included on his staff of helpers were Margaret Sanders, Professor of Physics, and Jake Shmuckler, Janitor. We walked around the building and, to my surprise, it was the same old building. The people of Gettysburg still refused to give the pupils a better High School. I excused my taxi and climbing aboard a street car, I started out for the National Cemetery, the old hanging-out place of the gang. I looked at the conductor. Ha! it was another old pal, Milo Diehl. On the walls of the car were some "ads" and I soon was attracted by these. The first one to catch my eye was "Pretzels like Mother used to make. The Wible, Berry Bak- eries." Another was "Art School, York St., Misses Kissinger and Evans." 39 -c-H-s- I reached the cemetery after a time and I was surprised to see our old friend, Keith Percival Burger, guiding cars over the battlefield as Myrick used to do. I stopped in the cemetery and was amused for a while by a photographer who seemed to be skipping about like a young lamb over the lawn. This was Jim Mumper. He had taken over his uncle's business and was doing very well. I went to a refreshment stand and saw as the waitresses, Mms. Louise Ben- der, Mary Bercaw and Flora Mizell. I shook hands with each and went on my way to town. While going in Baltimore Street I saw a large brick building and a sign on the lawn proclaimed "The Margaret Major School For Girls." I went still further and came to the Post Office and remembering that I had some letters to mail I entered and to my surprise I was met at the door by Clare Routsong. I asked him what he was doing. After he replied I nearly fainted. He was in the undertaking and embalming business in Bendersville. I posted my letters, after having shaken hands with Bob Morris, the postmaster and Charles Ogden as mail- carrier. Before I had gone a block I was attracted by a beautiful build- ing which housed the Arcadian Theatre, formerly the Photo- play. Several large signs attracted my attention and I noticed- that there was a special attraction on that evening entitled "The Woes of a Widow" starring Mrs. Treva Weikert Gilbert and Donald Leroy Weikert. - Before I had gone much farther I noticed a sign "Weiser's Medicine Store. Everything in Patent Medicines." I then went to the Times Building to see Bill Duncan but to my surprise I was met at the door by Miss Ellen Tipton, Editor- in-Chief of the Gettysburg Times. I talked with Ellen for a while and then I walked to a neighboring park and purchased a paper. I was tired and needed a rest so I sat on a bench and read the news. The first thing that attracted my attention was: DOCTORS MAKE M.ARVELOUS DISCOVERY Malaria caused by Mosquitos. Doctors Winebrenner and Roth of the Annie M. Warner Mem- orial Hospital, after years of experimenting, find that the com- mon mosquito is cause of malaria. 40 W- I -G-H-s- Just like them. The discovery was made many years before. On another page I found the advertisement: , PHYSICAL CULTURE SCHOOL. Misses Reaser, G. Weikert and Beard. Dancing, swimming and horseback riding. Miss Reaser has won numerous prizes as a dancer. Miss G. Weikert holds the records for the 220 yd. dash. Miss Beard has ridden thru Ceasar, Cicero and Virgil and is a very accomplished horsewoman. I decided to go out to college and see if it had improved any. On the gate was a sign which proclaimed, "University of Get- tysburg. Established 1832.9 I entered and saw in the mathe- matics room, Miss Lillian Weaver, instructing a class in Trigo- nometry. In another classroom I saw Miss Alice Munshour and Miss Martha Lentz, instructors in Agriculture. I emerged from college, after having shaken hands with Ross Sheely, coach of the baseball and football teams at that institu- tion. I was casually glancing skyward when I noticed a large air- plane with the insignia somewhat resembling a set of traps. I asked a passerby who this was and I was told it was Bob Dear- dorff, the flying parson. Bob wanted to be an aviator and his mother wanted him to become a preacher, so they combined their ideas. A I then went to a neighboring club of which I was a member and heard a record by Rexitus Von Humbug Gilberto, the noted Hutist. I then shook hands with Ducky Armor, noted third baseman for the New York Giants. Soon I journed through the stores and met Miss Pfeffer, head of the cloak and suit department of Lestz's, and Miss Esther Hartman, head of the music department of P. W. Stallsmith's, When I picked up a magazine in Stallsmith's I saw a story by Maybelle Weaver, a new song by Evelyn Toot and I also noticefl the "Good Food Department" by Misses Anna Oyler and Mary Appler. I was glad to have seen my old friends and I must say after all these interviews, "Ain't Nature Wonderful ?" - 41 E The Senior Circus. "Everybody out for the Senior circus.

The day was dark and dreary. My eyes were closing fast When down the street on a rocking horse Rex Gilbert flew apast. His hair was wildly Howing And his eyes of deepest pink Were streaming tears of orange hue. It made me stop to think. And then another clattering, A wail and then a scream. Mark Wible on a turtle's back Was shedding tears of green. I thought that was the ending And tried to go to sleepg But Horace on his hands and knees Was crawling down the street. Then Slim she came a-pushing A baby coach so small, In which Floranna howled and cried Because she couldn't crawl. Came Routsong on velocipede With face as black as night. He had in tow fat Jessie Beard Whose hair was silvery white. And Howard Berry waddling On bow-legs fat and round, With a look of agony on his face, As a choir boy was gowned. As down the dusty highway They sped with all their might Don Weiser followed on ice skates. He flew past like a kite. And then came Mary Kissinger In a sleigh of deepest red. The horse was blue with purple stripes Although he looked ill-fed. And Lillian looking anxious 44 And Gladys looking wild Flew past in candy wheel-barrows. What made them look so riled? Bob Morris on a broomstick. He beat upon a drum Which was tied to the top of his crimson hair While he sucked his dimpled thumb. I hailed small Donald Weikert As he one-stepped past on skiis And asked him what the trouble was. His .answer was a sneeze. But Harold was more cordial In his Wheezy Ford of tin. When I asked him where the fire was Ile answered with a grin. "Jakie's sellin' guinea pigs Direct from the Hall of Fame But he's had to give a lot away Because his eyes are lame. And so he shouted to his friends To come while they were fresh And he would give them all away If they'd ketch 'em with a mesh. The crowd that you have noticed So flustered and upset Are all a-going down to Jake To get a little pet. But Greedy Rex was heard to say That he would get them all. That's why you hear those wails and tears, That's why you hear them bawl." The day was dark and dreary. My eyes were closing fast. The traflic had all passed along . And I could sleep at last. -15 Senior Play-"Stop Thief' Prologue. . Mr. Carr. Mrs. Carr Madge Carr .... Joan Carr -'G'H Senior Play. "Stop Thief" 4 F arce in Three Acts. Cast. Caroline Carr ....

The 1919 football team made a record that will probably re- main on the books a long while before it is equaled. Eight vic- tories out of nine starts and 243 points against the enemy's 6 is the record that entitled them to claim the "Mason 8z Dixon Foot- ball Championship for 1919". The success was due to the unity of play that characterized the speedy backfield and iron line. This unity was instilled into the team by Coach W. D. Reynolds to Whom much credit belongs by reason of his faithful and hard Work. Six members will be lost by graduation and they leave big holes to till next year. The graduates are Captain and Full- back Horace Armor, Quarterback Ross Sheely, Ends Keith Bur- ger and Donald Weiser, Center Jacob Shmuckler and Guard Howard Berrey. G O Sept. 27-Steelton H.

Every member of the team was a player on the champion foot- ball team. A glance at the basketball schedule below show that one-third of the games were with teams representing schools several times the size of G. H. S.

Up to the time that we are pounding this out on our type- writers the baseball teams show every indication of duplicating the football team's record. They received one setback in eight games and bid fair to complete the season without any more de- feats. The two main happenings in the 1920 baseball season were the development of Brady Armor as a second baseman and the twirling of Ross Sheely. When Hunter, who before this was the mainstay in the box, developed arm trouble Sheely stepped into the breach and saved the season by very remarkable twirl- ing. He has just turned in five straight victories in which he has allowed but 16 hits. Brady Armor is the new man on the R2 team and he has given some very fine exhibitions of playing around the keystone sack. The rest are all veterans having played in their respective positions for at least a year and some longer than that. Four members of the team graduate this year :-Horace Armor, third baseman, Ross Sheely, pitcher and rightfielderg Robert Deardorff, centerfielderg Jacob Shmuckler, left fielder.

On the evening of May 1, 1920, the pavements of North Wash- ington Street were monopolized by couples wending their way to the G. H. S. dance in Glatfelter Hall. The committee in charge of the affair was Messrs. Arthur Buehler, Horace Ar- mor, Keith Burger, Henry Scharf, Ross Sheely, George Scharf and Robert Hartley. They composed the Finance, Decoration, Refreshment and all the otherpcommittees. The success of the afair shows what our boys have the ability to do. Beside the large attendance of H. S. pupils and alumni were Miss Cope, Miss Borge, Prof. Reynolds, Prof. and Mrs. Lefevre and Prof. and Mrs. Shank. The hall was decorated with maroon and white streamers, a bower of the same screening the orchestra from view, and on the wall at one end of the hall a large 1920 reposed. The lights were covered with colored shades. At intermission ice-cream, cake and candy were served to the dancers, that is, to most of them, for there is a rumor afloat that some of the couples re- ceived none whatsoever. If the rumor is founded on truth those poor unnourished couples have our most profound sympathy. As the dance was semi-Leap Year the girls did most of the 'swapping' of dances. It was a new experience and the ladies kept tally on their fingers until their fingers were full and then they had to fall back on the better memories of their partners. Except for a few sad instanc-es where one dance was promised to three or four different individuals everything was satisfactory. The home waltz was being played as the clock in the tower above the hall started to chime the last hour of the night and as the last stroke of twelve sounded across the moon-lit campus the last strain of the home waltz died away on the air. The G. H. S. dance was no longer a reality, but a memory. 54 . Acco H os- Seniors in Prose and Poetry.
