In fond rememlurance as we go forth from the G. B.
T. H. S., and in grateful appreciation of the service
and kind help rendered us in our High School days, do
we dedicate to our beloved Principal, Mr. Black, this
book, the work of our hands.

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
Since the publication of the last high school annual many interesting
history things have occurred which should be recorded in the history of the
school. Shortly after the last publication came from the press an election
for the issuing of bonds for a new school building was called. A few days
before the election. Mr. Black called the high school together in the Moudy
building and plans were laid for a campaign to impress upon the people the
necessity for a new building. Students and all who were i11 favor of the
building worked hard and were very much elated when the results of the
election were announced. The issue carried by a small margin. The board
of education now started to work in earnest to get a new building, but in
a few days after the election, an injunction was filed restraining them from
selling bomls. or proceeding in the purchase of grounds. This injunction de-
layed all progress, until the case came before Judge Miller in the Oircuit
court in Feb. 19, l92l, at which time the opponents' counsel stipulated
practically all the charges in the injunction.
After hearing the complaints and the evidence the court deliberated
only a few moments, and in his decision gave a very interesting and in-
structive lecture on the value of education. The board was now free to pro-
ceed. and no time was lost. A great deal of credit is due to those men who
at that time were on the board of education. Meetings were held every
few nights, regardless of weather and business. Plans and specifications
for the new building and sale of bonds were uppermost in tl1e minds of all
the members of the board. Too much credit cannot be given to Geo. B.
Gray, J. XY. Smith, Jasper Ray, NV. S. Minor. Thomas Sweeney. E. O.
Lewis and J. ll. Phillips who composed the board of education at that time.
These men gave freely of their time, and every effort possible was made to
make the building as nearly perfect as could be done. The plans were fin-
ally accepted, the bonds sold, and the contract let to Mr. Tillman of Cen-
tralia. Mr. Smith, Mr. Minor and Mr. Ray were appointed on the build-
ing committee. At this time Mr. Gray, Mr. Sweeney and Mr. Phillips re-
tired from the board.
The Building continued to grow during the summer but was not ready
for occupancy in Sept. The Moudy building could no longer be rented so
G. D. T. H. S. had no building in which to have school. Several churches
came to our rescue with offers of their buildings for school purposes, and
the Miners Hall was also offered us. The Miners Hall being the best
adapted for school purposes we accepted the offer, and held school there
until in January when we moved to our permanent home. New labora-
tory furniture of the most modern type was purchased and installed. A
new gas plant was installed giving us an ample supply of gas for labora-
tories and cooking room available at all times. Manual training, cooking
and sewing have been introduced as permanent courses. The school has
been on the accredited list with the University since the last publication
and has, as its latest achievement, been admitted into the North Central

This is the fourth year that we have had
Mr. Black with us. ln so short a time, he has
aecomplished many things for our school. We
are now situated in a beautiful building, due
in great measure to the influence he exerted in
trying to procure a high school building. XVe
were accredited by the Fniversity of Illinois the
first year that he was with us. Now the G. B.
T. H. S. is a member of the North Central As-
sociation of Secondary Schools due to the un--
tiring efforts of Mr. Black to raise the standard
of our school. We, the Senior class, are indeed
fortunate to have had filr. Black as our guiding
star for four years.

THE VOYAGE 01" THE FLASS Ulf' 1922!
It was a calm peaceful day in September of the year 1919, radiant
with the sunshine of hope and joyous promise that the good ship, "Goode-
Barren Township High School" stood at anchor at the wharf of a new
sehool year. lt was the same old ship that had carried several passengers
to the safe harbor in the Land of Wisdom. but this was a gala day in its
history, for nineteen important personages were about to set sail in seareh
of the Land of Knowledge.
As the ship stood at anchor on that eventful morning, the passengers
began to arrive. To me was entrusted the important task of writing the
log of the voyage, that, even then we all realized was to be the most im-
portant of our lives. .lust before we sailed l looked at the ship's register,
and read the names of: Margaret Hatcher. Macile Vlark. Georgina Mitehell,
Amelia Tonozzi. Ruby fl0l'lil'lllIl, Montella Lewis, Perry Mcflollom, Edna
Sclunuck, Marie Britton. Kenneth Tippy., George Minor, Celia Zarfas,
Helen Hill, Matilda Rasso, lVillie Sneddon, John Ularke, lVilliam Minor,
Sadie Packman, and Pauline Martel, all bound for the same port.
At nine o'cock A. M. we steamed out of harbor for a four year's ab-
senre on our Voyage of High School Life. This voyage was in reality, to
be over four seas, though the four bodies of water were so closely joined
together they seemed but one immense sea. The first. and smallest of these
was the Freshman Sea. At first this was a rough and tempestuous sea.
Only those who are experienced can realize the dangers of those troubled
waters, but we were young and socially inclined, so it did not take us long
to become acquainted with our fellow-passengers. and the fears of ship-
wreck were soon gone.
At last we sailed safely -into the Sea of Sophomore, without the loss
of one. Life on this sea was very pleasant. lVe had beeome accustomed to
sailing and seasickness was now a thing of the past. Many festivities were
held on board that year. and we passengers were reluctant to leave the
Sophomore Sea that had held so mueh joy for us.
On a peaceful morning in September, 1921, we steamed into the -lun-
ior Sea. This was indeed a pleasant voyage, and everyone was happy. be-
cause it was at the beginning of this voyage that we were transferred from
the old leaky vessel to a beautiful new cruiser, t'New High School Build-
ing". But toward the close of the year, Montella and Edna decided that
the Sea of Matrimony would be smoother sailing, so they embarked for
Martial Bliss. It would take too long to write here the complete log of
this eventful voyage. lt would be very interesting to relate the many de-
lightful experiences, and the changes in the passenger list at the various
16 1' H E T A T L E R
ports along the way. ,llut the best and 1llllSi' Vital history of any person 01'
anything is never given to the world. So nxust it be with the Class of 1923.
XVe are now upo11 the last sea of our Voyage, the Senior YVaters. Only
twelve names are upon the l'assenger list now, Margaret Hatcher, Geor-
gina Mitehell. Perry Mrt'ollon1, Amelia Tonozzi, Ruby fl0l'lil'lllll, Kenneth
Tippy, Fred Seheltler, lidna Morgan, t'elia Zarfas, Marie Britton, Frank
.laeobson and Pauline Martel.
lt has been a nlost wonderful voyage. XVe have not faced any gale
whieh we were not able to withstand. YVe have not bee11 wrecked upon the
shoals of any threatening task. The billows ol' examination questions have
S0lllPflIll0S tried hard to overwhelm us but none has succeeded. NVQ have
been very fortunate in having Capt. lilac-k in eonlniand of the ship for he
has proven to be a able Connnander.
Now we look at the larger, more majestic oeean ahead, and feel that
our experience has fitted us to withstand the great storms and opposing
forces in life, with no fear of disaster. saying with Byron,
"Roll on thou deep and dark blue oeean, roll.
Ten thousand fleets sweep over thee in Vain."
Hut not in vain the elass of 1923. NVe will go on writing logs of great-
er adventure. For while the voyage of High Sc-hool Life is at an end, the
Voyage of Heal Life is now at its triumphant 1l0llllll9IlI'0lll0lli'.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY
The old clock upon the mantel was slowly ticking the hour. Nine o'-
clock. I paused a moment in my knitting to rub my sleepy eyes. 'tliring me
the "Tatler", I said to Tabby, my old gray cat tand sole companionl as she
sat comfortably at my feet before a blazing hearth in the dreary month of
December, 1943. I had given this command so often that Tabby knew eX-
actly how to obey it. Taking the precious book from her paws, I began to
turn the familiar and well worn pages wondering what had become of all
my class friends of '23 whose characters were reflected there. I began to
read, "This is respectfully dedicated to" ...... but
Nguddenly I could not see,
Slumber fell like a cloud on me.
And into my soul the vision flew."
f'Oh. you hurt! Don't" ....
At first I could not discover from whence came these decidedly femi-
nine sounds of distress. But gradually there appeared before me a scene
in a dentist's office. A handsome man with dentist's instruments in hand
was bending over an attractive lady. I was amazed! The dentist was cer-
tainly no other than Perry Mcflollom, president of our graduating class of
'23. And the lady was Miss Ruby Cockrum, our most efficient secretary.
'tVVhy, Ruby, I had just started to pull that tooth and anyway .... "
"VVell, anyway it hurt. But for goodness sakes, Perry Mctlollom. do
hurry! I have to prepare my lecture on "Bad Boys" before seven, and here
it is five-thirty alreadyf'
I eagerly followed Ruby as she left the dentist's office. We had gone
scarcely a block when she accosted a man who greeted her in a very brus-
que manner. Ruby cordially extended her hand.
Why hello, Fred. I hear that you have just been appointed Presi-
dent of the American Farm Bureau Federation. Is that so?"
T H E T A T L E R 19
'tYes,tt returned Fred." I resigned 1ny position as editor of "The Chi-
cago Tribune" and accepted this positiong but say, Ruby, Illll surely going
to hear that lecture tonight. It'll be a dandy if it's as good as the one I
heard last summer on "The Ilnsettled Position of XVOIIIGIIN.
t'Oh, thauksn, laughed Ruby as she proceeded o11 her way. I again
followed her but suddenly became lost in the whir and confusion of the
heavy traffic. For a moment all was dark and uncertain and when I found
myself O11 a rapidly speeding train. It seemed that the din of tl1e traffic
had been converted into the noise of the train. A newspaper was lying
near. I picked it up and soon became very much interested in the follow-
"ILLINOIS WOMAN RETURNS FROM TRIP IN SOUTH AMERICA
UNIVERSITY PREPARICS GREAT HONORS
The University of Illinois is preparing great honors for Miss Pauline
Martel who returns today from a trip in South America where she has been
collecting birds, fishes, reptiles, dragon flies and amphibians for the Uni-
versity. Miss Martel is a graduate of the University and is quite noted for
her unusual feminine bravery."
Another article printed in big headlines on the opposite page also
attracted my attention:
PRESIDENT APPOINTS A WOMANASATTORNEY GENERAL OF U. S.
FIRST WOMAN TO HAVE THE HONOR OF BEING A MEMBER OF
"Recently a great deal of excitement has been created in political and
social circles as well when for the first time in history a President has ap-
pointed a woman as a member of his cabinet. The most fortunate lady is
Miss Georgina Mitchell of Scsser, Illinois who was appointed to fill the
vacancy in thc Cabinet caused by the death of Attorney-General VVhite.
Miss Mitchell, a very capable woman of unusual ability, has been practic-
ing law in Renton, Illinois, and has won great renown as a brilliant law-
I had barely finished reading this extraordinary article when I felt a
hand upon my shoulder. I turned to discover a very handsome man who
seemed rather familiar. There was a sarcastic grin upon his face as he
said, "IVhy, hello there, Margaret. So you too have been reading of this
silly appointment. I thought the President a wiser man than to appoint
a woman to such an important position. Of course, Georgina is a very ca-
pable woman, but such positions should be reserved for the men, don't you
Overjoyed at seeing "Tip", another of my class friends of '22, I did
not take time to argue the question of 'tXVomen's Rights", but again to
question him concerning himself. '
"Oh, I am now a chemist with the Houston Grain and Milling Oo.",

20 THE TATLER
Tip answered with importnce. "I've been up to Chicago on business. But
say, Margaret, have you heard about Frank ?" H
f'No, what?" I questioned eagerly.
"He is now a consul in Africa. His address is Moneka D. C. C. C. M.,
via Coquilhatville, Congo Beige IV. C., Africa. l've heard that he not only
manages the business affairs of U. S. very efficiently. but that he also has
great influence upon the natives and officials there, and that he is arous-
i11g them to great social and political reforms. He is" ....
But somehow his voice died away and the scene changed again. I
found myself once more on a crowded thoroughfare in a great city. Strol-
ling down the street I gazed at the interesting shop windows. One very
neat and up to date little millinery shop especially attracted my attention.
Upon entering imagine my surprise to discover the stylish shop-keeper to be
no other than Marie Britton. She was garrulously engaged in selling a
beautiful little hat to a woman whom ..I immediately recognized as Edna
Morgan. Very much surprised, they welcomed me warmly and We chatted
almost an hour upon our old associations in G. B. T. H. S. I gladly accept-
ed Edna's invitation to spend the night with her. On the way home Edna
informed me that she was a social worker of the American Red Cross. She
also gave me detailed information concerning Marie. It seemed that the
latter had accumulated quite a little fortune from her stylish shop, but
that as yet her Prince Charming had not appeared. She considered her bus-
iness quite 'fromantic" and would not give it up.
It seemed that we had almost reached Edna's home when all became
confusion and much happened that I cannot distinctly remember. But I
do remember finding myself in a magnificient opera house. A darkhaired
and dark-eyed young woman was singing very beautifully "Ave Maria" to
the soft accompaniment of a violin. To my joy and surprise 'l' recognized
the singer to be Amelia, and the violinist, Celia. At the close of the song
I was eager to speak to my old friends but their admirers crowded in until

Crash! I saw stars and then I found myself sitting in the same cozy
room only on the floor this time. Tabby was purring furiously and try-

I had fallen during my vision. After regaining my former position with
Tabby on my lap, I began to think about my extraordinary, but realistic
Was it a true vision of class friends of '23? And then I thought, just
wait and see.

JUNIOR CLASS POEM
Twelve juniors we have, the brightest in the world,
Four lively boys and eight modest girls.
lVe'll introduce them all to you, so you may see,
What their chances in this world may be.
Audra Voc-krum, our president, is indeed a bright boy,
Ile makes the Juniors proud of him, and oh the joy
livery one felt when in our play this year
lie ke at everv one U'l'illlliIl"' from ear to ear.
. 8 PN
NVilliam Moore is the one who leads when we yell,
And he's very industrious in his studies as well,
Ile isn't without ambition as some boys we know,
But aspires to be a doetor, and help make this old world go.
Hal Stoelzle, who is such a bright and intelligent lad,
lVill some day make his mothers heart real glad
For in matheinaties he is so very hard to beat
That some day he will even show Black defeat.
Howard Farmer, who is usually called a "ladies man"
Does everything well and in the best way he can."
lle plays on first basket ball team, you know
And when it eomes to writing poetry, he makes a show.
Virginia Butler, the tallest girl of the Junior class,
Has an attractive smile, and is a lovable little lass,
She is a shark in Latin and Chemistry as well,
ln fart, she makes good grades always, so the teachers tell.
Lois Hartley is the most lovable little girl,
That could be found in all the wide world
You could search the deserts, islands and the oceans blue
And never find another pal so loving kind and true.
Frances VV0lowski is one for Whom we all fall,
Her winning smile and ways endear her to us all.
She's a wizard on the violin, as you will all agree,
Some day a rival to Fritz Kreisler she will be.
THE TATLER '
Leah Lambert has a very quiet and modest way,
And can always be found Sfllllj'l11,'I the livelong clay.
She plays the piano very well as all will testify,
Anfl is very niee to look at and also rather shy.
Vera Hill, with her dark brown bobbeml hair,
Has clark eyes and a coinplexion fair,
Sl1e comes to school whe11 so inclined they say.
And always tries to niake the lll0Sf of every day.
Une clear little girl i11 tllll' famous junior class
Is Pearl Uglesby, who is the o11ly blonde we have,
She is so sweet that we all love her dearly,
She always looks charming, you can see very clearly.
Jewell Kelling is really the Junior girl,
Who d0esn't seem interested i11 the social whirl,
She is very lllUtl0Sf and intelligent as well,
The boys 4lon't seein to interest her, strange to tell.
Velma Moore has real dark hair and eyes
Anil is usually considered to be very wise,
She is Cllil1'llllllQ,', polite and witty too,
And talks a great deal of the things sl1e wants to do.
Now you know a few things about the Juniors true,
Anil as to the rest, why .... XVe'll leave that up to you.
So ends the brief mleseription about the Juniors twelve,
Who will always be l'0lllQl1lll8li0tl in the G. B. H. so well.

UNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Un the morning oi' September 5, 1920, we Freshies, twenty-nine in all.
began our journey through G. H. T. H. S. Like all Freshies of the past,
and like all Freshies of the future, our chief characteristic was "gr-eenness".
Ry the kind advice of Mr. Black,-who tried hard to impress upon the minds
of a t'ew of the brightest looking ones just how to proceed in a class meet-
ing, we proceeded to elect officers and a class sponsor. By a unanimous
vote Lucille Pate was chosen president, Audra Cockrum, vice-presidentg
Pearl Uglesby, secretary-treasurer5 and Miss Stiff, class sponsor. Social
gaities, which are most prominent i11 the Freshman year, next drew our at-
tention. The result was several memorable parties and wiener roasts.
The next year, 19:21, our number was diminished to twenty. At our
t'irst class meeting we elected Lucille Pate, president, Pearl Uglesby, vice-
presidentg Lois Hartley, secretary-treasurerg and Miss Hussey, class spon-
sor. A great deal of excitement was created April 3, when we discovered
that our class president had eloped! Pearl then presided i11 all our class
meetings. The first social event of our Sophomore year was the initiation
of the Freshies. A delightful luncheon was served on this occasion. Other
parties were held during the year, the most interesting one being held in
the "gym," March 10.
ln the fall of '22 our number had decreased until we numbered only
14. As we were now upper-classmen, we had our class meeting earlier than
usual. The following officers were elected: Audra Cockrum, presidentg
Virginia Hutler, vice-president, Stella Dougherty, secretary-treasurer3 and
Miss Smith, class sponsor. Our number was further deceased when it was
discovered, early in the first semester, that two of our members, Avllllillll
Minor, Jr., and Stella lboughtery, had been secretly married in August. As
we were now without a secretary-treasurer, a meeting was at once called,
ami lloward Farmer was elected to fill the vacancy. A wiener roast was
the first event of special interestg all the class inviting friends and going
to t'laybanks. The -lunior-Senior lialloween masqueraderadc party was
our next social event. Miss Brewer received first prize for wearing the
best mask. She was dressed as an Indian squaw. Carl Dillon, a member
of the Alumni, who represented Mr. -Iohn liarleycorn received second prize
We have the double honor of being the first class to give a class playg and
also our play was the first' ever given in our new building. Our play, 'tThe
Elolzement of Ellen," proved a wonderful success. We are eagerly looking
forward to our last year in high school, but our Junior year Certainly has
been a wonderful one to all of us.

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY
ln the tall of 15121 our class entered G. ll. T. H. S. as "Freshies". after
a glowing year of happiness in the eighth grade. Oh! how we did enjoy
that last year in The Sesser Public School. On The last night. after school
was out, we had a farewell party, bidding farewell to public school life for-
ever. Ours was the class which started the custom of having commence-
ment exercises in the Sesser Public School. -,
Our Freshman class was large, for although several of our former
classmates failed to go on with us, The number was more than covered by
those who calne To us from The country districts. Oar class was the larg-
est one ever enrolled in G. B. T. H. S.
One afternoon Mr. Black announced. HA Freshman class meeting to-
night." and that afternoon we met and elected Earl Dillon as Class Presi-
dent: Ruth YVard as Vice President: and Stanton Jolley as Secretary-
Treasurer. YVe had much trouble in selecting our class colors. but finally
we agreed on The pretty combination of lavender and gold. Mr. Benson
was chosen as class advisor. He was very amusing, especially on the wien-
er roasts which we enjoyed. On one memorable night. The Sophomores wel-
comed us into high school life by The customary initiation party.
As everybody seemed To be going in for basket ball we joined The pro-
cession. 1Ve organized, The girls with Gertie Isom as Their captain, and
The boys with Randall Mezo as Their captain. John Tarwain, better known
as Ufiig John,', soon lnade himself so well known in The basketball World
that he was put on The HVarsity Team". He seemed to be The one promin-
ent figure of our "Freshie" class.
ln The spring of 1922 an Inter-Class Track and Field meet was held!
and we Hgreen Freshies", as some still termed us, won. But that epithet
didntt seem to cool, in the least, our elation over the victory.
Then, in September of 1922, we came again to G. ll. T. H. S., this Time
stepping with all the dignity and loftiness of newly-made Sophomores. But
our large class had diminished to the small number of Twenty-six This year.
YVe do not have to furnish the fun for The school this year, as we have pass-
ed that pleasure on To the new 4'Freshies7'.
Early in the school year. we had a class meeting and elected Ruth
XVard as President, Randall Mezo as Vice-President: and Fhesta Young as
Seeretary-Treasurer. Mr. Benson was reelected as Class Advisor.
As "Sophs" we have become quite famed for our ignorance concern-
ing theorems and axioms in Geometry. But nevertheless, we still have our
Upepv and enthusiasm for old-fashioned hard work. YVe have here in this
small class of ours artists, authors, singers, lecturers and almost every
type of talent. Our class slogan is. "lVaTeh the Sophomores Growlf' To
the other classes, we Turn, here, and say. ffFollow in the footsteps of The
Sophomores, and you'll reach your longed-for destinationf'

FRESHMAN CLASS ROLL

F RESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
ln the autum of 1922 there entered the G. B. T. H. S., a group of boys
and girls who were destined to compose a new Freshman Class. This class
seemed just as young, just as learned, and just as 'fgreeuv as all freshman
classes before it.
WVe realized that we were no longer mere boys and girls. but young
business men and women. YVe began to see that in an individual way we
were doing some good work. VVith that realization came the old proverb. .
"I'nited we stand. divided we fallif. So our class organized early in the
school year. A meeting was called and the following officers were elected:
Ulass Sponsor, Miss Stiffg President, Russell Ramsay: Vice-President.
llarijv Pateg Secretary and Treasurer, Henry Cockrum.
Thus we were organized and soon found ourselves striving and toiling
sometimes in sunshine, sometimes in shadow, always trying to bring our
class to its proper place in the regard of the faculty. Already a great
change has come over us. VVe are no longer so green as we first looked
when we entered this institution and have proved ourselves to be far more
intelligent than anyone ever supposed.
If we fail the first times, our hopes do not vanishg our determination
to succeed is greater than ever. Our motto is: "Try a little harder the
next time." Already we have seen the results of some who are trying hard-
er, and a faint glimmer of our real worth is beginning to illumine the G. B.
T. H. S. Some day, perhaps, the glimmer will grow into a great light to
brighten our mighty paths, and then we will look back to the little glim-
mer with which we started. Until that day we will continue our struggle
to make our light shine brighter and brighter.
Although at present, we may seem small and iiisignificant. by hard
work and co-operation. we will gradually reach our aim and hold the hon-
orable aml dignified position of Seniors. Then there will be a jolly season,
which will bring joy to our hearts. Even before our Senior year, perhaps
you may see many of our names recorded in the annuals of the school.
This school may well be proud of us. For our policy is to take up the
work of those who leave us year by year and carry it through with the
same or, if possible, greater success.

The basket ball season was opened 1-ather early by a. tournament be-
tween the different classes. This tournament enabled Coach Benson to
pick the "Varsity" team and also served as practice games for them. ldv-
ery boy of any size was hoping against hope that he would be picked for
either the "Varsity" or the second team. Some of these hopes were realiz-
ed and some were disappointed, but all the boys were satisfied that the
members of the "Varsity" squad certainly earned thier positions. About
the first thing the "Varsity" team did was to elect Kenneth Tippy as cap-
The first game was scheduled with Thompsonville, an old rival who
defeated us twice last year, and naturally every player was on edge and de-
termined to do his utmost to win. Therefore a week of strenous practice
preceeded this game. The boys were rather slow in the first half but in the
last half they gained confidence and "walked all aroundv the Thompsonville
players in midseason form. This victory convinced the people that we had
a winning team, one with the "pep" and fight, qualities of which good
teams are made. W
The game with Ewing College was one i11 which the speed, training,
and sportsmanship ot' our team showed to good advantage. We were too
fast for the College boys and won a decisive victory.
And so throughout the season our team played with the same spirit
that was shown in our first two games, the spirit which is essential to ev-
ery winning team. ln every game whether it was going our way or not, the
fighting spirit was shown until the last whistle was blown. Wherever we
went, we were shown the cordial. welcome that we ourselves extended to
visiting teams. At the conclusion of every game, whether a victory or a de-
feat for us, our opponents acknowledged that we were good sportsmen.

THE GOOBERGO0 AND THE KANTAN
At 11:45 p. ni., on December 231, 1922, the Goobergoo and the Kantan
met on a heath just outside the town. The Goobergoo, a tall, bent, gray-
haired old man, carried a sickle over his right shoulder. The Kantan, a
smiling youth, carried a huge glass container.
The Goebel-goo and the Kantan are the names the fairies have given
to the Old Year and the New.
This particular heath is the place where all tl1e Goobergoos and the
Kantans 111eet. The Goobergoo acquaints the Kantan with the ways and
customs of the world.
The two stood looking at each other for a long minute. The Goober-
goo took particular notice of the glass container, remembering that a year
before he had carried nothing. He wondered what Spendis, the father of
the fairies, could have give11 to this beautiful lad.
"Pray tell me, Kantan, what you have in that large vessel? Is it very
heavy for you to carry."
"Oh, that," replied the Kantan, "contains fair weather and foul, sun-
shine and rain, and 1 shall distribute them according to their need. How
is the world progressing, Goobergoo ?"
"In llly opinion the world is growing better," replied the Goobergoo.
"The people are progressing in every way, and many wonderful things are
being discovered and invented by wonderful and intelligent people. The
people look forward to your coming, each having wished the other a pros-
perous New Year."
"Although I do not know of the customs of my people, I shall do my
best to please and prosper them?
'- "Do not be surprised at the fashions, Kantanj' cautioned the old
man. "Possibly it's because l'm old, but this thing they call fashion, ap-
pears to 1116 very ridiculous," and the Goobergoo sighed deeply.
At this the Kantan smiled. "l'm young, Goobergoo, and I shan't mind
"Do you know, Kantan, l'm glad that the time has come for me to go
to Delniananfi said the 'Goobergoo thoughtfully. "Pm really very tired and
the people, having become accustomed to me, have grown tired of me too."
"Perhaps you are wondering about Delmanan ?" resumed the Goober-
goo. "Delmanan is a large and beautiful castle, built by the fairies. It is
underground and is surrounded by a beautiful garden."
"Is that where you are going now? "asked the Kantan.
"Yes,'i answered the Goobergoo. "After being on earth a year, admin-
istering to the wants and needs of the people, I long for a quiet place in
which to rest, and that is where I'm going."
The bell in the high tower chimed twelve and the Goobergoo was gone.
THE TATLER 43
The happy Kantan knew that after a year on earth, during which time he
would rule the universe, he too would go to Delmanan to rest.

GOLD, GLORY OR GOODNESS
Three men sat on a bench, beneath some shade trees, where the road
branched i11to three differnt directions. Their names were Selfishness,
Ambition and Benevolence. Selfishness wore a khaki hunting suit, and
had a large bag on his back, for he was hunting money. Ambition was
dressed as a knight of old. ,Ile had on a helmet, and an armor and carried
a lance. lienevolence was dressed in plain clothing. These three young
men were about to set out 011 the Journey of Life.
Soo11 the young n1e11 saw, coming towards them, three damsels, each
from a different branch of the road. Their names were Gold, Glory and
Goodness. Gold and Glory were most beautiful, although Goodness was
Gold arrived at the bench first, so she was the first to offer them
what she had in life. She pictured to them large palaces and airy rooms
filled with gold a11d precious stones. All they would have to do to get this
would be to go with her along her road. This road was smooth and had
beautiful trees along tl1e sides. Under these trees were benches surrounded
by silver fountains from which there flowed water as clear as crystal. At all
this Selfishness nodded his head approvingly.
Glory came next. She said that she l1ad much more to offer the young
men than that. She pictured to each of them, large palaces in the largest
cities of the world. She promised that people would come to these palaces
to shout their praises, "Long live the King! Long live the King." All that
was necessary for them to do was to follow her. She would give them great
deeds to do all along the road. At this Ambition nodded his approval.
Next came Goodness. She could offer them only happiness in the end.
She told them of the struggle of the uneven and rugged journey of Life,
but she also told them of the happiness that would finally come. Selfish-
ness and Adventure sneered, but llenevolence smiled and said, "As for me
I choose Goodness for my companion."
Selfislmess began the journey of Life with Gold. Ile had nothing to
do but to gather money as he went on. lle was expecting his last days to
he pleasant. Now he could gather money and enjoy luxuries also, but lat-
cr he would quit gathering money. liach day he gathered enough to fill
his sack, but the next day Gold supplied him with another. XVhen, at last.
he came to the end of the road and saw the palace in which tas he thoughti
he was to live, he shouted with glee. lle knocked upon the door and waited
for someone to answer. Soon Gold came to the door and led him into a
44 T H E T A T L E R
back yard. Here he was immediately set to work crushing stones with
countless other prisoners who had been tricked as he himself had been. He
worked uneeasingly and all the while Gold laughed at him.
Ambition started out in life by choosing Glory as his companion. All
along the road he travelled were old castles, moats and other things which
were of interest to him. Before every castle there was a guard. These he
challenged to battle, in which l1e was always victorious. He always left
his foes lying prostrate, apparently lifeless. Ambition thought this was
great fun, especially since he was never wounded. Soon he saw a large
stone caste, surrounded by a moat, with a guard at the two draw-bridges
He was so excited at what he thought was to be his future home, that l1e
blew his trumpet. The guards at once saluted him. He was escorted at
once into the castle where he was greeted by Glory, his companion. Then
he was led into a room where his weapons were taken from him. Then they
set him to work pumping water. T
Benevolence began the journey of life with Goodness. The road along
which he traveled was rough. There were stones in the road over which
he stumbled, and holes in to which he often fell. There were no shade trees
with song birds, no benches near silver fountains.
Henevolence did as many kind deeds as he possibly could. Many times
he would leave the road and go lllftb a neighboring field to answer a call
for help. Sometimes he went to answer the bark of a dog which he thought
might be in distress. i
After many weary days, he came in sight of a s111all brown cottage,
XVhere he thought he was to live. He did not shout as Selfishness and Am-
bition had done, because he was so very tired. When he went into the
house he saw Goodness. She took him through the different rooms of the
house. After he had been in all of them hevwent into the garden. It was
very large so he looked around again to see the house. Instead of the small
cottage, which he thought was there, there was a great palace standing
before him. . .
After strolling through the garden, he entered the Palace and talked
with Goodness. She told him how she had played the part of the person or
thing in distress in order to test him.
Benevolence was lltlt obliged to work in his old age, as selfishness and
Ambition were, but could enjoy the fruits of his kind efforts in his younger
days. Selfishness and Ambition enjoyed life while they were young. but
were made to work in their old age.
YVe see by this, that Goodness is the best Goal to choose in life. The
others are all right in their places, but they are wrong out of place. Good-
ness is never out of its place.

OBSERVATIONS OF THE ASSEMBLY
' ROOM CLOCK
Tick. toekl Tick, toekl
Tim only the assembly room eloek.
Some folks may think that all T know is "Tick, Took", but you just sit
up here on this shelf all day with me and you'll find out differently.
About eight o'eloek A. M. T see a few of the early students coming in.
Some of them study over their first period lessons. Others are working on
over-due notebooks and book reports. while Sflllli' of them seem to have
nothing to do and plenty of time to do it in.
Ry eight twenty several students have eome in. T often notiee a group
of young people in the baek of the room. They seem to be enjoying some
pleasant pastime. Now T won't say how true this is, but T got it dirert
from the pencil sharpener who said that the wastebasket told him that she
read a note saying that the game they were enjoying so greatly was eheek-
ers. Tlowever, T wouldn't attempt to say how true this is.
Now, folks, if anything will get me "plumb riledv, it is for some lit-
tle hussy to eome in ten minutes late and tell a respeetable old lady like
myself that T am too fast. Girls like that go by a little old alarm elork
that is never right over twiee a day and that is when it is stopped.
All during the morning the assembly room teaehers eonsult me when
they wish to find out the time of day, and often T am the means by whieh
they determine whether or not it is the broper time to ring the bell.
At noon T enjoy the melodious strains of harmony whieh pour forth
from the piano. The girls play and sing and talk .md say sweet things.
exehange reeipes for eandy and eake and tell the name of the boy with
whom they have their Sunday date. 1
At one o'eloek plus Mr. Rlaek runs in, looks me squarely in the faee.
then turns, makes a grab for the bell switeh. and says, "This must never
happen again." Then the students file in one by one teach shoving the
otheri. take their seats and begin to ehat. Mr. Rlaek is too polite to talk
while anyone else is talking. so he waits until they have finished and then
he makes his announeements. About the time he gets started to talking,
our slide trombone player wakes up and blows a blast loud and long. This
is usually a hint for elasses to pass.
T am eonsulted during the afternoon as much as T am during the morn-
ing or possibly more. T usually state the time of dismissal whieh is about
four o'eloek. 1
Tiek, Toek! Tick. Toek!
After all, I am just the School room clock.

46 THE TATLER
A FAIRY TALE
"THE NVONDICRFUL FOUNTAIN PICN7'
I was sitting at n1y desk one evening wracking my tired brain for 2111
idea for an English theme, when suddenly I heard a queer tapping noise
on a book at my left. I turned to see what was the cause, and to my amaze-
ment there stood a little old lllilll about six inches high with a flowing
white beard. He was tapping impatiently on the book with his 021116.
"How do you do ?" said he. HI see your mind is quite troubled. lVould
you like to have some help? I know you are wondering who I am and how
I know all about your thoughts. I am Mr. White Beard, and I live in the
wonderful place called Fairytownf'
lVas I dreaming? I pinched myself. No, it hurt. Had I suddenly
been changed into a fairy? I looked into the mirror. No, I was just the
same size I had been before. This situation was becoming very interesting
and exciting. The little old man spoke again.
"I am a special helper of the Fairy Queen. It is my duty to help peo-
ple wl1o are in trouble. So if you are willing to obey me I will tell you
how you can write a splendid English theme."
Naturally, I consented. For I thought 4'.Iust anything in the world,
if I can write a good theme."
t'WVell,', said Mr. VVhite Heard, 'fYou have surely heard of the IVonder-
ful Fountain Pen which the Queen of Fairies keeps in her palace. I am go-
ing to help you get it."
Yes, I had heard of the Wionderful Fountain Pen. Many people had
attempted to get possession of it, but none had succeeded. And I was to
get it! I could hardly wait until the old man finished.
t'Come with me to Fairytown", he said. I followed him out of the house
into a forest. After we had walked quite a distance we came to Fairytown
And what a beautiful sight it was. There were tiny castles of all colors.
The fairies wore shining robes and seemed to move on the air. They were
all alarmed by a human intrusion, and went into their castles.
Mr. White Beard led me up to the most magnificent castle in Fairy-
town. This I knew was the Queen's castle. The Queen came to greet the
old man, and after he had explained to her why 1 was there, she smiled
kindly and said,
"So you are searching for the Wonderful Pen? I am sure you deserve
to use it, or else White Beard would not have brought you here. I am
very glad to lend it to you. .But there is one thing you must remember
This pen only writes English themes. lVhen it is used for other things it
returns to me." With these words she called her servants, six tiny men
dressed in uniform. p
"Bring the NVonderful Fountain Pen from the locked safe."
In a short time the servants reappeared bearing the most beautiful
T. H E T A T L E R 47
pe11 I have ever seen. It was made of shining gold and was studded with
diamonds. There were three of the little men 011 each side of it, bearing it
011 their shoulders.
The Queen then asked me to lift it from their shoulders. She told me
how the King of the Fairies had come in possession of it when warring
with another band of fairies, and how they had carefully guarded it since,
permitting only worthy people to use it and how they had all gained fame
as great authors.
I bade the fairies goodby and started l1o1ne. "How lucky I am,"
thought I. "After they have all read my wonderful story I'll show them
what a mysterious pen I have in my possession."
l found when I started writing that ideas flashed into my brain like
lightning. Soon I had a long theme written. The next day I took it to
English class. The teacher read it and pronounced it the best theme she
had ever read. My classmates phophesied that I would be a great writer
some day. Of course my grade was an HS".
Since I had such great results from lily English work I decided to try
the lVonderful Pen on my mathematics. It seemed that those problems
were terribly hard. I just couldn't work them. IVhat was the matter
with that IVonderful Pen? I started to write a formula when all of a
sudden, the pen faded away out of my hand, before my very eyes! I was
speechless, thoughtless, and senseless for awhile. After I recovered from
my dilemma I remembered that the Fairy Queen had said that the pen was
to be used only for English themes. And in the excitement and joy of hav-
ing it in my possession, I had forgotten her warning.
So, I finished my mathematics with a pencil, and the loss of the IVon-
derful Pen my English themes are not sueh that cause people to say that
I will some day become a great writer. '

AN OLD SCHOOL HOUSE OF MINE
UVITH APOLOGIES TO JAMES WHITCOMB RILEYJ
As one who views in wonder the Capitol of our land
And muses o11 other structures as wonderful and grand,
So I turn 1ny thoughts and wonder, till in shadowy design
I find the precious strueture of an old schoolhouse of Illille.
My memory grows brighter and a million blessings come
As l dream of days hack yonder and of all lily dear old ehums,
And to dream the old dreams over is a privilege sublime
lVhen my truant fancies wander with that old schoolhouse of mine.
l11 faet, when Cares oppress me, tllltll the dark Clouds hover near,
l'm like a ship afar at sea without a sign of eheer
Vntil in Ill0lll,l'Y7S harbor, my thoughts will always find
A safe and joyous anchor in that old srhoolhouse of mine.
A place of work that's pleasant. and play that's merry too,
XVith teachers kind and helpful, and pals so good and true,
It just makes me thrill with rapture. all my cares T must resign
lVhen my soul is filled with mem'ries of that old schoolhouse
I can see the pleasant classrooms, the merry boys and girls,
'l'he teachers ever busy, the hest janitor in all the world,
Their hearts all bound together with a love almost divine
That makes me think more dearly of that old sehoolhouse of mine.
But Ah! You are wondering what the name of that school may he
It's G. B. 'l'. H. S., my friends. that's so very dear to me!
And all my life I'll cherish, my heart will ever pine
