The first two terms were passed very pleas- antly under the kind instruction of Miss Rice who showed more patience than we We deserved. We then passed thru the second room by the guidance of Miss Cummings. She was firm but always kind and willing to help us out of our petty trials, of which there were no small number. Only one year were we permitted to hold Miss Conner as our teacher, which seemed very short indeed, for she was just like a chum to each one of us. So in the fall of 1910, we faced a great crisis,-we were to lose our last lady teacher. We were very fearful of Mr. ,Kennedy at first, but he soon proved to us that our fears were unfounded. After two years, we were permitted to go upstairs with the same teacher. Of course we felt very important when we reached this point, but we were to reach still greater heights than this in the High Schoolj GOAL. ll School life became more pleasant to us on account of the morning exercises in the high room. This was quite new to us and was made more pleasant at this time by the purchase of a piano. Mr. Kennedy held us strictly to our duties and saw that all lessons were throughly lcarncd. Besides this, there was, lcssf, suflicient time for little jobs antries. ln the fall of 1914, we, a class of thir- teen in number, entered the High School where Mr. Bcgland was our Superintendent and Mr. Sindlinger our Principal. Here is where we have spent some of our happiest days. We felt very "green" in the Fresh- man grade beside all those wise Juniors. Our greatest difficulty seemed to be in get- ting our Latin, but since then we realize that we were not so weak as we thought. The next year we became jolly Juniors and wc did have a jolly time, listening to thc Freshies recite Latin, also enjoying Mr. Sindlinger's jokes. Several class meetings were held this year, when we elected the following oflicersz Florence Johnson, presi- dent, Grace Wheland, secretary and Ray- mond Peter, treasurer. We also chose our class colors, green and white and our class flower, Lily-of-the-Valley. Near the close of this term we gave a re- ception in honor of the class of '16 at the home of Miss Grace Wheland. An enjoy- able evening was spent in games, contests and music. Our Senior year is now at its close and it has been a very pleasant one, with Mr. Sindlinger as our Superintendent. Only once have we met with any serious incident. This took place when 'one of our members was inclined to leave our ranks, but the "engagement" was broken and we still have our friend with us. There are nine members in our class: one boy and eight girls, with three original mem- bers, Luey McConnell, Zola Saunders and Florence Johnson. And now as we bid farewell to the dear old High School, we wish to express our appreciation for all the efforts of our teach- ers in guiding us to this Goal and we sin- cerely hope that our walk in the great School of Life may be worthy of the stan- dards held up by the G. H. S. Zola L. Saunders neverthe- and pleas- 1U THE GOAL. PROCRASTINATION "Procrastination is the thief of time." Many valuable minutes are lost and many opportunities neglected because of proscrati- nation. If we were to study carefully the lives and early training of many of our great men, we would find that they were trained to prompt and courteous obedience. History affords many examples of wasted opportunities. The greatest battle that ever was fought, the battle of Waterloo, was lost because one man was slow to obey orders. When the South seceded Buchanan feared the crisis and strove to avoid the critical period as long as possible. But our great president, Abraham Lincoln, when he was elected took immediate steps to bring the southern states back into the union. There is always a place ready for the man who is ready for it. In this age of the world-he who can do a thing well and do it possible is the one who the quickest way will succeed. Our American public will not wait on any man Procrastination to make up his mind. is caused by a motive of laziness, which in itself is to be discouraged. Someone has said, "never put off till tomor- row the things you have to do now." To- morrow is doubtful and uncertain. Now is your golden opportunity, then let us be quick and eager to do what is required of us now, and the future will take care of itself. Florence Johnson The Future of American Music Strange as it may seem, the engines of war now being used in Europe are mostly of American make. The machine-guns, the submarines, the airoplanes are all products of American genius, and so itdoes not seem strange to learn from the refugees, that the troops of all waring countries, have been marching to battle fields, to the tune of Sousa's marches. Although America has always devoted herself to industry and commerce, still she has not altogether lost sight of the artistic world. One of the best signs of musical advance- ment is the fact, that young composers are springing up all over '-our country, and not only -writing for the money they -get out of it, but because they love it These young composers of America are not imitators, and do not copy after Strauss or Beethoven, but has write their own ideas. This fact, as been proven ages ago in the history of the world, is a great step towards success in anything. America at the present time is looking on with horror at conditions in Europe, where music is drowned out by the cannon's roar. She is now in many ways the hope of the world and must see- to it that high -standards and ideals predominate over selfishness, pride and commercialism, and among other things make greater efforts in bettering the ideals in the musical world. Lucy McConnell -1- TH-E WOMAN OF T0-DAY Thruout the Union, women organized and unorganized are preparing to offer their services to the government, and meetings are 'being 'hold in many cities and towns thruout the United -States. who .have joined the'Red America. The medical profession lowed by men only, every of women studying medicine increases. lt has always been the popular opinion that women do not have nerves strong enough to beasurgeon, but men have found out that her power of endurance and fortitude is on a par with that of the sterner sex. The woman of today is making history as well as man, remember we have a woman in congress, an aviatorix, and in Colorado, the women are even now demanding that they be allowed to sit as jurors, in order that justice be given to the women and chil- dren. This shows that since she is doing the same work as man, she should have equal suffrage. Let us look at the women in Europe, and see -what "they are doing during this great war. Women are taking the places of men un the farm, in the factories, on the street cars, railroads and in every walk of life. Womenare no longer looked upon as in- ferior, butnas. equals of the sterner sex. -She is the builder of the home, the counselor of her -husband, and the guiding star of her children. Eunice Huston There are many Cross Society of is no longer fol- year the number T IUC GOAL 1 1 CHOOSING A VOCATION We should all choose our vocation as early in life aw possible, in order that all our enmrgies may be directed towards the cultivation of those talents, which will help us in our calling. One may possess the most excellent gifts, yet if our efforts in their cultivation are divided, we can never expect to accomplish what we had hoped to. Care should be taken in choosing our vocation, it should be one into which we can put our whole soul, for it is then only, that wc will use our best effort because we believe in it and feel that it is worthy of our undivided energy. There are always difficulties and draw- backs, to be found in every occupation, yet it is the overcoming of them that really tests the worth of the man. When this country was new, the pioneers had to have a smatttring of knowledge along all lines, but now this is no longer necessary, and the history of all localities plainly shows, that he yy ho has only the one main purpose in view, has learnt the first lesson neces- sary for a successful career. This is an age of specialties, and it is only he who faith- lully follows out his natural inclination who becomes a.i experteit is these who are al- ways in demand. The lower walks of life are crowded, because there are so many who are content with their present accomp- lishments and do not have the ambition to seize their chance for something better. Competition is strong, and it is therefore such who, after they have chosen their vo- cation and then fitted themselves for it, who do not have to give way for others or fall out of the race altogether. Lulu Rupert ll HOME Home is the magic circle within which the weary spirit finds refugeg it is the sac- red asylum to which the care-worn heart retreats to find rest from the toils and in- quietudes of life. If you were to start out and ask every- one what home meant to them, you would no doubt find many different answers. lf you should ask a lone wanderer as he plods along his way, bent with age, he would probably tell you, "lt is a green spot in memory, or an oasis in the desert," and oh! how he loves to talk of home. It seems like heaven to him to visit the old home, arid in a dream live his childhood over again. If a child were asked what home meant to himg he would tell you it was all the world to him and he knew no other. It is the spot where he pours out all his com- plaints and it is the grave of all his sor- rows. . Home has an influence which is stronger than death. It is law to our hearts and binds us with a spell which neither time nor change can break. Home should be the sacred refuge of our lives whether rich or poor. Among the poor the affections and love are the great- est and they make the beautiful and grace- ful things of life. Home stands at the end of every day's labor and beckons to us. lt is the one great object of life and the chief school of hu- man virtue. ' But taking all these things together with- out home friends, home is nothing but a name. Everything that is good, kind, or noble is linked either with mother, home, or heaven. God bless our homes, for any nation that holds and keeps them pure, holy and un- stained need not fear decay or stagnation. Grace E. Wheland AIM OF LIFE lt is the aim in life that makes the man and without this he is nothing. To accomp- lish great things, it is necessary that we should have a high aim in life, Whatever a man's talents and advantages may be, if he has no aim, or only a low one, he is weak and worthless. Without some definite object before us, some standard which we are earnestly striving to reach, we cannot expect to attain to any great heights either mentally or morally. We do not realize to what heights and noble accomplishments we can attain and on this account often fail in being what we long to be. We must not place high stan- dards for ourselves and hope to reach them without any further efforts on our part. God Vonlliiued on page to lsl column, 12 THE GOAL THE GOAL.

We deem it a pleasure thanks to all who have in tributed to the success of which we believe will be a Our nation is now facing a crisis. People are horriiied at the Waste of human life, but though we are a peace-loving nation we must stand up for our national honor. We must stand firmly behind the president. Everywhere you hear people say, "If they need me I will go." This is the right spirit and the true American way. "Whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so."--tPsalms 16 parts of 3rd and 4th verses.J This quotation is a statement so befitting the life of a pupil, that it must have been expressly written for him. It does not mean that the school tasks of a pupil who loves God will be accomplished without effort. But the pupil will be endowed with a strong desire and determination to accomplish them by the help of God. This promise :hould be a very precious one to the young man or woman whose desire and duty it is, to make the world better for those living in it. . The idea, that to prosper is to merely ac- cumulate the riches of this world, is courted only by narrow and selfish people, who expect to receive their reward in this life only, regardless of the next. The truly prosperous person is he, who receives spiritual riches. Near the close of life is not the time to make sure that you shall prosper-your chance is nearly gone then-but in the morning of life is the time. lt is sad indeed that we lind such a small number of young people who are really claiming this promise and so many others that God offers. The education-moral and intellectual-- of every individual must be chiefly his own work. How else could it happen that young men who have had precisely the same op- portunities should be continually presenting us with such diiferent results and rushing to such opposite destinies? Difference of talent will not solve it, because that differ- ence is very often in favor of the disap- pointed candidate. It is perseverance that helps form the foundation of character so essential in all our dealings with our fellow- men. Opportunities rarely come to us without some degree of effort. You will see coming from the walls of the same college, and sometimes from the bosom of the same fanl- ily, two young men,' of whom one shall be admitted to be a genius of high order, while the other not. You are compelled to recog- nize the genius sinking and perishing in poverty of effort in the one, while in the other, a determination to plod his slow but sure way up the hill of life, gaining stead- fastly at every step, and mounting at length to eminence and distinction-an ornament to his family, a blessing to his country. 1 THR-1 noir. 13 Now' whose work is this? l I V U, 1 -Manifestly their own. "Men.are the archi- tects of their respective fortunes.1"l The de- sire to be truly great, must be our standard, then comes the effort to reach that mark, and the "Golden Opportunity" will 'be yours, if- you persevere, for no one ever failed, who tried hard to reach the goal. ,N 1 VVe, "The Boosters" of t.he'G.' H. S. have inet a condition, thwarting our efliciency as well as reputation. Unfortunately some of-the pupils have be- come discouraged and to all appearances, have concluded their school career. What a gross mistake, at the very outset of life. aid one they may not befable to correct. If you wish to be successful, a. good educa- tion is absolutely essential. You will dis- cover that when seeking employment, for lrequently one of the questions asked 'is "Have you a high school Certificate?" Not that you are then supposed to have attained unto "all knowledge," but that perseverance linked with good coxnmon sense have prompted your motives thus far, opening the door to greater opportunities. I heard a pupil remark, "If I do not pass I will quit school." Parents come to the rescue, what a privilege and duty- is yours 'to en- courage and even compel such 'a' child 'o continue despite adverse circuznstances. Use your parental authority-issue the de- cree and forestall a calamity. Such a i.iis- fortune might have befallen many, had not parents interfered and induced them to con- tinue. "If thou hast sipped from the cup of win- dom, many more cups shall not quench thy thirst." , Standing on the threshold between schowl days and life's school the seniors are given to reflection. Looking Lackward they seo ing- happy days that are gone and realize the opportuilties that are lost. The future looks bright but vcry uncertain. Each and cxery one hopes to attain some high ideal. Now they realize the value of an tduca- t.on, and are eager to press on to larger iields and learn more. To the discourage-l youths behind them they would say, "Make the uiost of your present opportunities nt- ttnd faithfully to your studios and you will Igexfr rt-get it." On the evening of April 11th, while the large crowd of both old and young of this village and neighborhood that had gathered in the Town Hall Square, to witness the llag-raising, were singing the Star Spangled Banner, led by our band, "Old Glory" was unfurled to the breeze. Immediately there- after, five of the seven infantry-men detailed to this place, to guard the railroad bridge, tired a. salute to the flag, and then all re- paired to the Hall, which was neatly draped with flags and bunting, for the occasion. The meeting was presided over by the Mayor, Mr. J. M. Wheland, "America" was sung, prayer led by Rev. J. E. Weinland, and stirring addresses were delivered by lv.l8SbI'S. W. H. Stoutt, of The Chronicle, and Atty. G. W. Reed, both of Uhrichsville. both of the speakers were given the closest attention by the entire audience which coni- pietely filled the hall, and the frequent ap- plause indicated the fact that all fully un- derstood the gravity of the present national situation, so that when tho closing song, "the battle tiynin of the Republic" was sung, all present seemed to believe that iii- deed-"God is marching on,' that o.i.n c...- ze.i-old or young-at this time has an in- dividual duty to perform, and that it niusi be resolutely discharged. Un Saturday evening about 6.30, Good Will Uouncil, Jr. U. U. A. Al. presented a new this to the Public Schools, which was unturled from a staff projecting from the Library win- dow at the school house, while our band play - ed The Stal-Spangled Banner. The presenta- tion was made by Mr. ltlnier Siinniers tclassof 19009 anieinber of the council, and was ac- cepted by Piol. Sindlinger in behalf of the school. The large company then innrclued to the 'l own Hall, where the Hon A. U. ltutf of Dover inadenn impressive patrioticaddress, Mr. A. Pfeiffer' presided at the meeting. The Senioicassisled by th Junior and l"iur-h- man boys, gave Slmkespe :rubs famous " Ihr- ' . Comedy of Eiroi's" as their clacsplnli inthe Town Hall on lfiiday uenii g, May 25Ih.

THE HISTORY OF GNADENHUTTEN The Village of Gnadenhutten is situated on the east bank of the Tuscarawas river. lt was an Indian religious and industrial ccntcr, founded by Zeisberger and the Brown Brethren in 1772, and which was brought to such a cruel and untimely end by Wl1ll8lHS0ll'S expedition. On that memorable eighth day of March, 1782, the Christian Indians were by strategy captured and imprisoned in their mission houses, where they were confined and then led out singly and killed with a co0per's mallet. Only two youths escaped death. The village was destroyed by fire and nothing left but the ashes and charred bones of the ninety martyred Indians. This sad event is commemorated by a large monument made of Indiana limestone, 56 feet, 7 inches high, and costing S3,000, w'hich was erected on the site of the Mission Church, and is annually visited by many people from a distance. The site of the missions was on the east bank of the Tuscarawas river, on what might be called the third terrace above the river bottom. This location was character- istically chosen because of its security from hard storms, and high water, its prominence over-looking the low river bottoms on which the red men raised their crops of Indian corn. Quite naturally then, fifteen years later, when Heckewelder, William Edwards, and four Indian brethren returned to this section of the great western territory, from their temporary stopping place near Sandusky, Ohio, that they decided to locate the new settlement for white people as near to the former-.mission site as possible, where their brethren and kindred had so cruelly been put to death. No wonder that after so long and weari- soine a journey, Heckewelder wrote the fol- lowing, when they had set foot on these familiar grounds: "It was a very pleasant thing and we held it to be a good omen, that so many birds in branches of the surrounding trees lifted up their voices and sang sweetly as if to express their gladness at our coming." On Sept. 29, 1798 Heckewelder moved into the first house situated on the present corner of VVest Main and Cherry streets, now the site of E. B. Campbell's residence. For five years this was also the meeting place for the community which soon became established here. This resulted in the or- ganization of a Moravian congregation on July 6th, 1800. New cabins were built, and in 1803, the first log church was erected on the south side of West Main street, between the houses of R. Everett and A. E. Milligan. It was dedicated July 10th and Rev. David Zeisberger, then stationed at Goshen, preached the dedication sermon. This building also served as a school house until 1843, when the first low, one-roomed, public school-house was built on the east side of North Walnut street, on the lots now occu- pied by the homes of G. J. Gray and his son Roger. On Aug. 13th, 1820, they started to build the second church, some feet east of the Hrst one, on the lot now occupied by L. Williams. The first parsonage was built on the cor- ner of West Main street and Cherry, the present site of D. Kennedy's residence. David Peter built a house on Cherry street where Reuben Mohn now lives, which served both as store and dwelling. Jacob Winsch built a house on the corner of West Main and Cherry streets, where O. Gray now lives. The first mill of Gnadenhutten was a lit- tle hand-mill set on a post in the middle of West Main street, in front of D. Kennedy's residence, on one side of the street, and 0. Gray's on the other. The residents used this mill to grind their corn to make corn cakes, and it is at present in the care of W. T. Van Vleck. Near by they sank a well, and later on sank another in the middle of East Main street, in front of S. Mil1iken's residence on one side of the street, and F. Meyer's, on the other. A Mr. Heidig was the first tin and copper- smith, having his shop at the present site of Mary Myer's property on East Main St. In L. S. Winsch's youth, some of the rem- nants of the first saw-mill were yet evident, protruding from the bank in the vicinity of the rear of Ed. Rank's property on North Cherry street. The second saw mill was built by Lewis Peter. THE GUAL 15 The first tailor-shop was at the present site, of Joshua Gooding's residence on East Main street. The first tailor being a man by the name of Mohn. The tirst carding machine was built on the east end of Jacob Winsch's lot, now the site of B. Linard's residence on West Main street. The first ferry at Gnadenhutten across the Tuscarawas river was near the division line of Reuben Mohn's and Samuel Wal- ter's property on Cherry street. The ferry- lnan, a Mr. Ingham was drowned while per- forming his duty. The terry was then moved farther up the river opposite North Cherry street. The first weaving establishment was at the present site of Samuel Walters' resi- dence. Adam Dell was the weaver, he had five or six sons who also were employed in weaving. After the Dell's had left the prem- ises, Mr. Diver the iirst doctor at Gnaden- hutten occupied the building. Charles Peter was the first cabinet mak- er, having his shop in a building that was owned by Lawrence Huebner in after years, but which has recently been torn down. Lewis Peter was the first blacksmith. The Guadenhutten cemetery is classed as one of the two oldest Christian burying grounds of Ohio. Schoenbrun being the oth- er, but the latter has long since been ob- literated by the plow. The Missionary Society was granted 12,000 acres of land by Congress for the Mission Station, but after the massacre, it became a burden to the church. So they sug- gested to Congress to retrocede this land and thus relieve them of it, which request was granted. In 1824 by special act of Congress, the iirst village site was surveyed under the super- vision of James Patrick. The town lots brought the small price nt four or the dollars apiece. They surveyed the street running at right angles with the river, making it the unus- ual width of 99 feet on account of the build- ings on it. This street was named Main. All the other streets were made half the width of Main, with the exception of Wal- nut street, which was also made 99 ft. wide. In this survey there were also a number of reservations made, containing the follow- ing provisions: First, at the extreme south end of Cherry street a plot was set apart for a village and Morarian cemetery. Second, the square of lots referred to be- fore as the site of the first and second churches and parsonage were reserved for the Morarian denomination. Third, the block of lots comprising the present town hall square, at the intersec- tion of Main and Walnut streets were re- served for a market lot or public building for the village. Fourth, the two lots opposite the present Moravian church were reserved for a parochial school site for that denomination. Fifth, the lots situated on the east side of North Walnut street, at the intersection of Long Alley were reserved for public school grounds. Thtre were several other reservations to private citizens of this place. The first school house proved to be too small after some years. So a new two-story frame building was erected. In 1850 the third Moravian Church was built on South Walnut street, at the inter- section of Fetter's Lane, and adjoining the Town lot reserved for some public building. ln 1881 the second school house being too small the Board of Education, of this special district, added two more rooms to the build- ing. The increase in attendance was the direct result of the various improvements made in the course of study and grading of scholars by Supt. S. K. Mardis, who had been elected to that position two years be- fore. In 1895, the increase both in interest and attendance in the school, again compelled the Board of Education to erect a new com- modious, two-story brick building, contain- ing six rooms and costing over S13,000. lt was built at the farthest ends of South Wal- nut street. The fourth Moravian church was built in 1903, a brick edifice costing S13,500. A new brick parsonage on adjoining lot was completed in 1916, costing about S7,000. The first M. E. church was built in 1863, and was re-built and remodeled in 1915. Gnadhenhutten was incorporated as a hamlet in 1884, with a board of trustees as Lrontluued ou page Lu. Isl column. l ti THE GOA L. CLASS PROPHECY One evening, after my lessons were pre- pared for the next day, I was sitting in the swing thinking deeply on a subject which filled my mind. It was our future. Sud- denly, I seemed to have the power to fore- tell the future of my classmates: so if you will kindly step into the future with me, I will tell you what I see ten years hence. First, let us enter a motion Picture Thea- tre. The title of the first play is "The Queen of Society." At first we are not much interested but suddenly we sit up and rub our eyes. The heroine is a tall beau- tiful blond, very well known to us, as Eunice Huston. She was now a "movie" star, and was earning twenty-live thousand dollars a month, as we hear a, man who sits behind us, inform his companion. But our surprise was not to end here. The next reel is entitled "The Red Cross Nurse" and is said to be taken from real life. The scene opens in a hospital in France. The wounded soldiers are looking very woe-begone until a pleasant looking nurse enters the ward, when every soldier smiles his brightest smile. As she comes down the aisle, stopping at each cot to cheer or to make some one more comfortable, we recognize Florence Johnson, one of the leading nurses of the whole world. Upon leaving the theatre whom do we meet but another of our classmates. At first sight we do not recognize the fashion- ably dressed young lady coming toward us, but her face looks familiar. At the same time Lulu sees us, for it is Lulu Rupert. We are very glad to see Lulu again and ask her to tell us what she had been doing since we parted after our graduation. She replies that she is the Rhetoric teacher in Ohio State, and enjoys her work very much. We wish to know what has become of some of the other girls, so she tells us of Zola Saunders. After completing her college course, Zola, with two very dear friends, had gone to China as a missionary. She was carrying out great reforms there. Her photograph is in many prominent newspapers and the whole country is filled with admiration for the brave girl who is doing so much for the Chinese. We do not hear from any more of our classmates until the Spring vacation when we visit in Gnadenhutten. While walking up Walnut street one afternoon, we noticed a sign which reads, "Miss McConnell, de- signer of Latest Spring Fashions," on the door of what was once the old post office building. We wanted to see Lucy again so we opened the door and entered a very business-like oflice. Altho very busy design- ing the Spring Styles for Gnadenhutten so- ciety, Lucy kindly visits with us a few min- utes. After each had learned the history of the others of the few years since we had about Grace Wheland. told us.that "Ike" had mere man. She was parted, we inquired Sorrowfully, Lucy left her just for a then living a happy married life in Chicago and was highly esteemed by all who knew her. We wanted to know whom Grace had married but her old chum could only say, "Well, well, I didn't think it of Ike. Then, we see ourselves strolling down the railroad track toward Lock Seventeen the following day, when we meet Esther Petry. She .tells us that she is a member of con- gressg one of the six congress women of the United States. Of course we knew there was a lady by the name of Petry in the assembly, but never thought of it being our old school mate. Ester looks well and seems very important over her position in congress. Several months later, while walking down Broadway, New Yoi'k, we hear a newsboy calling, "Buy a paper, read about Mr. Peter, inventor of the new submarine. l-lurriedly, we purchase a paper, and, glancing over the glaring headline, we iind that it is Raymond F. Peter, a former Gnad- ennutten young man and a graduate of the class of seventeen. He was then in the eni- ploy of the Government and doing a great ueal toward making our country successful in the war with Germany. when reading our paper, we feel that some one else is also reading it over our shoulder. Upon turning around we notice that it is an old lady. Turning to her com- panion this lady remarks, "I wonder if this Raymond Peter is acquainted with the Miss Peter, who graduated in the Gnadenhutten Class of Seventeen. I hear that she is- But just then, she and her companion are lost in the crowd.
