APPRECIATION The Seniors wish to express their sincere appreciation to Mr. Fowble for his assistance and encouragement in the publication of this book. We wish to thank the members of the other classes who contributed articles for the Au- rora; and also the business firms for their generous advertising, which has made this Annual possible. GRETCHEN SHORE. jJHEN the word shy mentioned we all look around for Gretchen. but permit me to say right here, that “shy” did not describe her the night of the Senior Hunt. Gret- chen is a most earnest worker and a most loyal member of the class of 1920. GEORGE GILL, Secretary. 3 RISH loves to appear with a green tie on St. Patrick’s day. He has played loyally on the basket ball team. He is noted for fancy dancing and is a regular “ladies’ man.” KLAHOMA has loan- ed us Vera for over a year and she has won a place in the hearts of all. Vera has specialized in commercial lines and we are sure she will make good, for whatever she undertakes, she does well. HELEN LINKHART, Etlitor-in-Chief. m EJ L L acquainted When not working on the above mentioned subject, she could be found work- ing on the annual. As editor-in-chief, her re- sponsibilities have been great but she has shoul- dered them willingly and effectively. ROBERT FRANK, Treasurer. THAT “green car” is siWhe way to distin- guish Bob. He is always ready to take the girls to parties. His party to us when Juniors will never be forgotten by any mem- ber of our class. MARGARET GERBER. a JOLLY girl, with whom one can have lots of fun, and a good scout — which means a lot — besides being very good in her studies. Very fond of dancing, too. MARY MAYBAUM. M • ARY has been on all the committees for all our social activities. As business manager of the annual she has been an energetic worker and her efforts have met with great success. LEROY STARK Jf EROY is one of our new members; he hails from Iowa. On many occasions he has favored us with selec- tions on his violin. AVA TOLLE, Class President. (7t N artist whom the class of ’20 is proud to claim. Ava’s enthu- siasm in doing what everyone else wants her to do has made her a very popular class president. FRIEDA EWIGLEBEN. jf RIEDA is one of our jT studious students. She is a real business girl, very good in com- mercial work She is in- terested not only in type- writing but in a certain “Hup.” RAY KOSTBADE. IX recitations per day has been Ray’s schedule all year. Ray has worked hard and his grades are O. K. He is very popular with the ladies. However, we can’t hold that against him, poor youth. ESTHER BOLDT m JE all know that l-Esther is always happy and gay, for she has a smile that never wears off and never gets angry. Her blushes when she recites cause her a lot of embarassment but do not interfere with the good results. : qg0 £§ sc N IOR CLASS S3 £5 H.H.S. gg £3 SENIOR CLASS £5 EH SENIORS OF ’20 STARRING IN ‘TIIEIR HIGH SCHOOL CAREER.” Scene I. Setting: Hobart High School. Time: January, 1916. Enter: ' A group of badly scared Freshmen. Their extreme nervous state is due to threats made by the Seniors. Juniors and Sophomores to initiate them. To prove their fitness to survive they must show their ability along the lines of Algebra, Latin, General Science and Ancient History. Upon examination, they display so much talent that they are not only permitted but urged to pass on. Scene II. Setting: Same. Time : One year later. Enter: The same group who are now Sophomores. This year they delight in telling the new Freshmen how they will initiate them and, true to their promise, they perform this work to the entire satisfaction of all. Even the Freshies ad- mit that the initiation team did excellent work and was a credit to the class. They are getting along well with Algebra and Latin and it is decided that they now take up the additional burden of Botany and English. Again they prove their worth and climb higher. Scene III. Setting: High School of Hobart. Time : Another year later. Enter: Eleven of the original class. They feel and look far more superior than ever before. They continue their work in English, Latin and History and are introduced to Geometry. Some elect the Commercial work, others Science. At the close of the year, they give a sumptuous banquet to the Sen- iors which establishes their reputation as entertainers. Scene IV. Setting: Same Ilobart II. S. Time: Four years have passed. It is now 1920. Two new members have joined the remaining ten of the original class. During the Senior year many social festivities are held. The class has also accom- plished much in the literary world. The members have devoted much of their lime to the publishing of the Aurora, which they wish to be a testimonial of llteii fitness lor Seniorship. I hey make their last appearance on Commence- ment night, when, as a reward for four years’ work, they will receive their diplomas from the Hobart High School. Curtain. GRETCHEN SHORE. ’20.

Hope you received your answers last year. Don’t fail to ask ?’s and I won’t fail to favor you. Mr. Ans. Man : — I have been reading your answers to various questions and 1 find them interesting. In 1920, I was sponsor for the graduating class of that year. Since then, the members of that class have drifted away from the town and I would appreciate very much any information you could give me concerning them. ELLEN MALONE. Miss Malone: — You are very kind in telling me that you enjoy my answers and I am very glad that I am able to favor you. The information you seek, 1 can readily furnish, as I happen to be fortunate enough to have secured the services of Miss Ava Tolle as my secretary. She tells me that she was a mem- ber of that class, and in accordance with a pledge the members of the class gave each other on “Commencement Night”, they have kept in touch with each other up to the present time. Miss Mary Maybaum is now an English instructor in the Wheeler High School. She is the author of a book published in 1925 entitled, “The Value of a Wide Vocabulary.’’ Raymond Kostbade, a promising young lawyer, has won considerable fame as a debater in the House of Representatives. Washington society has received him with open arms. 1 1 is constituency has been so well pleased with his efforts in their behalf that in the recent election he was returned to Con- gress with an overwhelming majority. George Gill, an instructor of history in the “State University of Wiseoir sin,” has been so successful in his chosen work that he is so much in demand that Madison has to constantly increase his salary to retain him. It is rumored that he is planning to write an autobiography of Lincoln. iMliss Tolle regards this as a huge joke, just why. I do not understand. Robert Frank has settled down to be a scientific farmer and assures me that he is very contented in his work. He is much in demand at Farmers’ Institutes as he is considered an authority on “How to grow corn success- fully?” 1 320 JOL SEN IOR CLASS Q £g H.H.S. gg 53 SENIOR CLASS £5 For the past five years Miss Gerber has been the stenographer in the South Chicago Steel Mills, but has resigned her position during the past week. Reason ! In a clipping from a Chicago daily, we find the announcement of her engage- ment. By the way, her prospective husband is five feet four and one-half inches in height. Just recall the year 1024 and you will surely remember the exciting cam- paign when Miss Boldt ran for state senator on the Progressive ticket and was defeated on a narrow margin. At present, she is contenting herself by writing articles on “Woman Suffrage’’ for “Any Magazine That Will Accept Them.” At the present Miss Linkhart is attending the Chicago University and in my interview with her the other day she would give me no definite idea as to what she intended to do when her course there was completed. Mass Tolle says she has an idea, well, maybe I have too. Miss Ewigleben on leaving school became an employee of the Gary Heat and Light. Her work is so efficient that her employers feel that they cannot get along without her. Gretchen Shore? ? 1 Oh, yes, she has had what might be called an inter- esting time since leaving school. She took a course in secretaryship, and took her B. A. on January 22nd, 1924. February 28th of the same year, she pro- posed to Mr. Rightman, and on February 29th, 1924. became Mrs. Rightman. LeRoy Stark, the last one to join the class, just naturally followed in the footsteps of his father and became a minister. At present, he is trying to bring “light” to a group of Pennsylvania miners. Here’s hoping he succeeds. Vera Quinlan is a famous politician. Not long ago 1 heard her give a splendid address on “Civic Improvement” which I am sure impressed every member of the audience.

But off yonder where it’s rocky Where you get a better view, You will find the ranks are thinning And the travelers are few. Where the going’s smooth and pleasant You will always find the throng. For the many, more’s the pity, Seem to like to drift along. But the steeps that call for courage, And the task that’s hard to do. In the end result in glory For the never wavering few.

We, the Seniors of 1920, frantically called for the doctor to see if anything could be done to prevent it. The doctor, with the aid of Mr. Fowble, decided that we were altogether too bright, seeing that we had all of our required credits, and told us there was no help for us. So after making a visit to Mir. Alwin Wild’s and signing the following will at Attorney Pierson’s, we twelve Seniors of 1920 lay down to die the death which is in store for us. Personals bequeathed by the Seniors : FIRST: — I, Ava Tolle, bequeath my ability to draw pictures (not attention), to Grace Trae ger. SECOND: — I, Esther Boldt, bequeath my privilege of attending all the H. II. S. dances to Martin Friedrich. THIRD : — I, Frieda Ewigleben, bequeath my seat in the back row of the Phy- sics Laboratory to anyone who wants it. FOURTH: — 1, George Gill, bequeath my ability to play basket ball to Owen Crisman. FIFTH : — I, Gretchen Shore, bequeath my Freshman chum to Edward Hahn. SIXTH: — 1, Helen Linkhart, bequeath my loving Sophomore friend to Violet Croan. SEVENTH: — I, LeRoy Stark, bequeath my daily wad of chewing gum to who- ever can find it on the underside of the seat in which I sat in the Physics Lab. EIGHTH: — I, Margaret Gerber, bequeath my dimensions to Frank Gresser. NINTH : — I, Mary Maybaum. bequeath my literary tendency (to write notes) to Verva De France, providing she is able to get enough note paper.

Twelve enrolled on January 22nd, 1917, and sixteen the following September. Long will those twelve who entered in January remember their initiation, as it was the most eventful happening of the Freshman year. During this year, we helped to give, and also enjoyed, many parties. We gave the II. S. a “Hard Times Party”, and every one reported such a good time that it did much to encourage us. When the Sophomore year opened, we were very much saddened to find that three of our members had failed to answer the roll call. During the year, seven others followed in their footsteps, and we grew disheartened; but the Juniors stimulated us by reminding us that we made up in talent what we lacked in numbers. In the course of the year, our class was organized, and we entertained the High School in assembly. In fact, we did so well that Miss Griffith asked the sextet to appear on the program the night of the II. S. piay. On this occasion, whether the audience so thoroughly appreciated our efforts, and did not wish to overtax us. or whether they thought we were not prepared to respond, we do not know. However it may be, we were not encored. I p to the present time, this has disturbed our peace of mind. The Junior year arrived, and we were more anxious than ever before to get back to school, because we had been informed that the Junior year is the most enjoyable of all. You cannot imagine how surprised and pleased we were when, one day in assembly, Mr. Fowble announced to us that each month a High School Social was to be held in Community Hall. These we attended regularly, and in goodly numbers, always having the best of times. We are now looking forward to entertaining the Seniors as the last social even ' of the Junior year.

Grace Nelson, an Ainsworth lass. In bookkeeping is a wonder; For three years has been in our class. And never makes a blunder. Dorothea of Deepriver — A town five miles away — Comes to school in a fliver. Which sometimes causes her delay. Walter works so very hard. And always makes good; He deserves a just reward — We don’t all study as we should. Frieda, with her smiling face. In history is very good; She knows just where to find the place. And recites just when she should. Selma knows her work. And with a smile recites; She was never known to shirk. And pride in us she excites. Martin, in plane geometry. Really is quite smart ; When it comes to solid geometry — Even then he knows his part. Edna in Hobart’s City Hall Some day soon will be — Serving us, one and all — A typist of ability. Dorothy is fond of primping — Is fond of shorthand, too; She spends some time in thinking Which of the two she prefers to do. Harry, in basketball. Certainly is a star ; When he is near, clear the hall — He’ll hit you near and far. Irene was a FYeshman with us; Now she takes commercial work; She’s not inclined to fuss, And on the grounds does never lurk. Lois Gross is fond of books — To the Library often goes To search and look in all the nooks For her favorite prose. Alice, always happy and gay. Comes to school in a ’bus; It matters not the kind of day — She is sure to be with us. Raphael comes to class Promptly on the dot; In English, her we can’t surpass; She’s pretty, and knows it not. “Farewell” to the Junior Class; Next year we’ll Seniors be; And may we be a merry mass, And live a life of glee.

In speaking of Ira S. Keppel, Nothing would rhyme but Ethel. The Sophs have a young fellow named Fred, Who isn’t much taller than a bed. Hazel passes Wayne’s notes very well, But whom to? We’ll never tell. Our mischievous brother, Lefty, has A decided liking for “Take Me to that Land of -Jazz’’. Jessie is pretty, straight and tall, But even at that, she’d better stop talking in the hall. Fred and Ida Maelver make a good pair, Since in height there is not even the difference of a hair. Edna Johnson says she thinks Latin is a bore; But really she won’t, when of it she knows more. If Harold Peterson should hurry, ’twould be a great blow, Since every one knows lie’s so terribly slow. Walter Miller is very meek, And blushes when he starts to speak. Grace Traeger makes every one shiver When she comes ’round in her little tin diver. Our serious minded Brother Clinton Is fond of the lectures of Dr. Linton. There are three tick seeds named M. V. E., And no one could tell which was the worst of the three.

Owen and Frank are the “Freshman Pair” — One looks at the other’s size in despair, ’Cause Owen is so large and Frank is so small, And for pretty girls they always do fall. Peter and Emil both take the street car To come to our school, because it’s so far; In all our classes they are very bright, Because they take so many books home every night. Edward is full of fun from eyebrows to toes, And is famous for dances, as every one knows; Of him the Freshmen are all a cry proud, For he is always there to please the crowd. Oscar, or “Ham”, which is his nickname, For every little thing he gets the blame ; You always see him. CUM a smile on his face, And everybody knows his heart is in the right place. LaVerne is a very studious boy, And study to him is all joy; He is anxious in his work to excel, And his efforts are rewarded well. Lester and John play on the basketball team; When in a tight place, they get out through some scheme. They are the champion basket makers of the school, Though they play fair by basketball rule. Nick is a fellow full of fun; Before he’d start a fight, he’d rather run; Though he will soon pass out of the Freshman room, He’ll always be jolly till he lies in his tomb. There are two Margarets in our room, And both hope to get out of school very soon; They keep up their French and Latin to date, And both are so very, very sedate. Warren was brought up on the farm; He’s full of fun, but means no harm; We call him Mac, oh, just for short. He’s never been known to miss any sport.

They study very hard each day, And will, I suppose, till the end of May. Jessie and Mary are the best of friends, And one to the other always sends Greetings of each and every holiday, From the first of September to the last of May. Walter Tolle does not work very hard, But he keeps up his grades on his report card ; lie’s happy-go-lucky, and not at all mean, But in the class room he’s bound to make a scene. Martin, or Mart, so the boys call. Is full of old Nick, but not harmful at all; lie has been quite a student of flowers, And on them has spent many, many hours. Esther lives quite far from school, But is always on time and minds the rule; She is so studious, quiet and serious. To see any one do wrong would make her furious. Ruth is the tiniest girl in our class, But still she learns hard sums and Latin fast ; She wants the Alumni modal, 1 bet; Still, if she don’t get it, she won’t fret. Emil and Harold, both clever boys, Are anxious to avoid making much noise; If by chance they meet in the hall. One is apt to be the cause of the other’s fall. Bessie and Wally live on Lake street, And on the way to school often meet; But when at the school house they arrive, Then their paths do divide. Paul and Charles are “ Joryville boys”; They are rather too old to play with toys, But in the school room every day May be seen working and working away. Dorothy is on the last of the list; Her music hangs on the air like mist; She loves to practice and to play; Never tires, and finds something new each day. DOROTHY IIALL. EDWARD IIA I IN.

About a week after Christmas, the music-box, for some reason or another, refused to work, so I prevailed upon my father to take it with him and leave it at the music store on his way to the office. In order that he might not forget it, I placed it in his overcoat pocket. Shortly after he had boarded the car, the music-box decided to finish “Mulligan Guards”, which had so abruptly ceased the night before. Every one on the car began to look about curiously to locate the place from which the sounds were coming. Of course, father kept a stiff upper lip, and seemed deeply interested in his morning paper. But the effort to look innocent gave him away, and the conductor angrily ordered the car to be stopped, and father was most unceremoniously thrust into the street. In about a week the music-box had been repaired and, after much coaxing on my part, I persuaded father to bring it home. When the clerk had assured him that the music-box was completely run down, and would not cause him any more trouble, fa- ther placed it in his overcoat pocket. That night, no one thought of the music-box, so it lay quite peacefully in the pocket. The next day being Sunday, the entire family departed for church, with no thought of what the future held in store for us. We were standing, with heads bowed in prayer, when suddenly, to every one’s sur- prise, a strange thing happened. Strains from the “Mulligan Guards” rose upon the stillness as from the unknown somewhere. The pious deacons, with shocked expres- sions, and the venerable minister, raised their eyes to the ceiling in horror By this time, the tune had changd to “I Was Seeing Nellie Home”. The congregation had risen from their seats, and every one looked about with questioning glances. Father had learned by bitter experience that it does not pay to ook innocent, so he likewise rose from his seat and looked about, the rest of us fol- lowing his example. However, the direction from which the sound came caused every one to stare at us. °ne of the deacons, having located the sound, took it upon himself to investigate further. He came down the aisle toward us, and as I saw him approaching, my heart was in my mouth, as it were, A sudden dread cam e over me, when I realized what would happen, for the deacon, though pious, also possessed a temper. .

Now, the mention of Grand Opera had always seemed to me to he something inconceivable, even if our town did boast of having a show house, called by the town people the " Opera House”. But the idea to be actually going to see it was like — well, like the dramatic moment when the curtain of our Opera House would smoothly (ah, yes,) roll up upon that tragical scene — the death of little Eva. I spent all evening fussing over the coming event. 1 was so excited with the idea of really going that I could hardly go to sleep that night. The next morning we left on the eleven o’clock train for Chicago, intending to hear Gali Curci in her next to the last performance, “Don Pasquale”. We arrived in Chicago about one-thirty, and I soon discovered that I had lost my new white kid gloves, which had been given to me as a Christmas present. We were very hungry, so we decided to have lunch. My aunt was treating, so it was up to me to choose the lunch room. I decided upon the “Mandarin Inn”, which is a Chinese-American lunch room. This place has always interested me, because of its having, besides the main floor, also a balcony floor. This floor received its name because of its resemblance to a balcony. The balcony is just large enough for two small tables, which are separated from one another by a small passageway, so that the noiseless Chinese waiters may easily pass to and fro. We obtained seats on the balcony floor, and here I could not only observe the people near me, but also look down upon the main floor. Oh! the good chop suey and tea! It was simply delicious! We could not linger here as long as we would like to, because I was without gloves; so we were obliged to purchase new ones before going to the opera. We arrived at the Auditorium about two-thirty, and here I had another great sur- prise, for we had box seats. This was beyond my wildest dream. These box seats could be adjusted to any position that you wanted, so that we obtained a good view of the great soprano. Her voice is simply wonderful. I don’t see how any human being can sing in such a manner, with no apparent effort. The stage scenery was exquisite. The curtains were of dark velvet material, which seemed fully three inches thick. These curtains were drawn back by long silken cords, so that the second curtain could be plainly seen, which was also of thick velvet, but of a delicate cream color. The delicate cream and the contrasting dark velvet produced a striking effect. In this space the singers would stand when they were encored, having the cream curtains as a background, and being, as it were, framed by the dark velvet. Galli Curci wore a beautiful and very tasty costume of light colored silk, with an over-puff skirt of a dif- ferent color, which was richly embroidered with gold thread. Her personality is won- derful, and she thoroughly enjoys her work, always coming back when encored. After one number, I counted ten times that she came back smiling. If her partner seemed to object, she would grab him by the hand and pull him on the stage. The story is a comedy. I was very pleased with this, because tragedies do not ap- peal to me. Besides the playing of “Don Pasquale”, the “Birthday of the Infanta” was also given. This was very interesting. The costumes were very queer. The little girls wore hoopskirts, and had much difficulty in entering the door. When at last the cur- tains had been drawn, I sighed and, looking at my aunt, said: “This is the most won- derful day that I have ever had.” HELEN LINKHART.

But Alicia Tremont, affectionately known as Rosa, the village belle of Greenly, knew it not, or, if she did, she realized it only vaguely. Alicia was generally the only bright spot in the dingy, dreary office in the dingy, dreary old building; in fact, she was referred to oftentimes as “the desert rose” of the office. However, this morning, she was utterly discouraged. The clouds hung heavy, and she could not shake them off. A long month it seemed since her mother had died, leaving her all alone, and her grief was all the more keen because she was the only relative. Besides, this very morning she had received a letter from Hugh Belmont, breaking their engagement on the grounds that he was coming home seriously wounded — a useless cripple, as he put it. It seemed impossible that big, merry Hugh was really a cripple. Only six months before, when she bade him farewell, she had taken his place as secretary to James Montgomery of the Secret Service Department. “Hugh would be home soon,” she thought, “and she would then give up her position, if only he would come back un- harmed.” She tried to cheer herself by saying that it was nrobably not so bad. but a dread and longing filled her heart, and it was with difficulty that she turned to the day’s work. That morning her employer had outlined his day’s work for her — to discover the nest of the spies who had been receiving information from the office. Spies, how ridicu- lous in such a small town as Greenly! What could they be after? Nevertheless, it was only too true, and she now directed her energy towards the solution of the problem. Here was the case as she could see it: For the past week, all information passing through her office had in some mysterious way been reported to the enemy. Wait, not all, as she thought it over. She realized it was only the telephone messages which had leaked out. As she puzzled over it, she heard the sounds of the two linemen, busily working on the wires above. She wondered what was the trouble that took them so long to repair. When she recalled the morning conversation with her employer, the significance of the terms, “The telephone messages only” and “for the past week”, flashed in her mind. The thought startled her; but, having climbed to the tcp story, she heard enough of their conversation to incriminate the men. She quickly went down stairs, took a stroll, stopped in a store and called her employer. She noticed that both men followed her; so she stayed out for a long time, keeping them out. In the meantime, several plain clothes men entered the building and, on the return of the spies, captured them. That night, on being questioned, they gave their names as Hans Wilhelm and Karl Bockerson. They further stated that they were merely the tools of another, named Wil- liam Bohn, a famous spy. With the two spies, Montgomery and another man hunted everywhere for Bohn. Finally they found him in the telegraph station, preparing to send out the information which he had gained through Wilhelm and Bockerson. The evidence which he had upon his person was sufficient to entitle him to a long sentence in prison. The other two spies were finally tried and interned in one of Uncle Sam’s internment camps, and so passed out of the story. Three months later, Hugh returned, unchanged, save for an artificial limb. Together he and Rosa drove far out into the country in his car. There they held a long, secret conversation. A month later a simple wedding took place in the little village church, after which, among the good wishes from their friends, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Belmont departed to a very happy home life in a wee rose-covered bungalow; and if you don’t believe this story, you can go to see them there.

In voicing his aijn as a literary critic, Matthew Arnold stated the purpose of true culture. As students, what higher aim can exist for us than to learn and to give to the world “the best that is known and thought”? That it may live, and live comfortably, humanity is reaching out for the best that is known in science. That human life may be made worth while — a thing of joy, truth and beauty — humanity is eagerly seeking for the best that is known and thought in art, religion and philosophy. By means of the study of science, man hopes to keep alive the fruits of the greatest scientific minds of the race, and to gradually add to the fund of scientific knowledge. To this scientific knowledge must humanity look for release from the burdens of toil, pov- erty and disease. But to what purpose? Why should men so earnestly desire relief from the physical burdens of life? The answer is felt intuitively by all— man’s real life is spiritual; hence he must have time and opportunity for the cultivation and the en- joyment of his real life, if he is to live in the true sense. Science is a great boon to man, in that it affords him the necessary opportunity for the cultivation of his higher life. But science cannot do more; it cannot furnish food for the spiritual life. He must look elsewhere for this. To the great artists, musicians, philosophers and religious teachers one must go, if he would truly live a man’s life. Unfortunately, many of these avenues to truth and beauty are closed to the majority. The language of the musician, the artist and tne philosopher is meaningless to many. But the language o f the masters of literature is easily understood by all who speak it. Should all other avenues of enjoyment be closed to us, our English authors could still provide sufficient means for the development or life rich in moral and aesthetic truth. Shakespeare is ever ready to reveal to us the beauty and majesty of our own language, of human emotion, and of human thought. Wordsworth finds for us the beauty of nature, and through this discovery leads us to see that we, too, are akin to nature and to God. Burns discovers to us the beauty of human relationships, and the happiness to be found in the sympathy of man for man. Shelley pictures to us the delicate and exquisite beauty that may exist in man’s own soul, while Keats causes our senses to tingle with the charm of the world about us. Not only do our authors teach us that life is rich in spiritual values, but they afford the means for developing efficiency for the practical duties of life. To be able to ex- press oneself truthfully and forcefully is an asset which no one can well do without in this day. A study of the masters of our speech is a valuable means to the acquisition of this coveted ability. The contact of great minds is the means of strengthening and making more force- ful the character of every individual. Finally, the analysis of human emotions and hu- man relationships— as can only be found in the masterpieces of literature— are invalua- ble as aids to every one who must deal with humanity. LATIN We sometimes wondered why we had to study a language which is no longer spoken. Our teacher explained to us that our English language uses the Latin alphabet, case construction and grammar formation. We found Latin terms in evei class which Forty -Three attended during the day, whether it was English, History, Mathematics, Music, Science r Manual Training. Few people realize that over one-half the words they use are or tin derivation.

GERBER. FRENCH This subject was introduced into the course of study this year on account of the de- sn-e for French by the students, and the need of some other foreign language. The work outlined for the first year treats entirely of such subjects as would make it possible to have a reasonable understanding of things which happen in the everyday life of the f rench people. • T he present class, as a whole, enjoys this subject very much, as it is enlivened and ar!fie, ,n nf e r l aCC0Unts from the in uctor of the customs and peculi- arities of the French people. There is also a great deal of interest shown because of our recent relations with the French in the World War.

Inasmuch as recent science has shown clearly the cause and prevention of many diseases, it is important that this knowledge should form a part of every individual’s equipment for the duties of life. With this purpose in mind, the Physiology Class of this year devoted one semester to the work, and it has proved very interesting. I am sure not a student regrets the hour spent each day in the pursuit of this knowledge. Several text books were secured from the Library, and these were kept in the reci- tation room for reference. No certain text was followed, but Mr. Small would name a topic to be discussed, and on the following day we would come prepared to recite. I am sure the portion of the work which appealed to all was the experimental work in the labora- tory when we dissected different parts of animals. LeROY STARK. CHEMISTRY The aim of the course in High School Chemistry is mainly to secure an understand- ing of fundamental principles, and the development of the powers of observation and expression. Under the thorough supervision of Mr. Mogul, we, as Juniors, had the elements or chemistry taught us. Owing to the enforced vacation, due to the influenza epidemic, we did not get well started in this subject until the second semester. Chemistry was an interesting subject, and w e specially enjoyed our laboratory hours. We felt blue when we had laws and theories to learn. Any one who could tell the difference between “Avogadros’ Hypothesis” and “Dalton’s Laws” was considered a wonder of the age. The most exciting times occurred during the preparation of hydrogen sulphide and chlorine. On these days, the Freshmen passed our laboratory door looking very much worried, trying to discover whether or not preparations were being made for their initi- ation. , | I I •; j J GEORGE GILL PHYSICS In the experiences of everyday life, we witness a great variety of changes in the things about us. Objects are moved, melted, evaporated, solidified, bent, made hot or cold, and undergo a change in their condition or shape in a great many other ways. Physics is the science that treats of the properties of different substances, and the changes that may take place within or between bodies, and it investigates the condi- tions under which such changes occur. In us broadest sense. Physics is the science of phenomena. The study of Phys- ics, however, not only directs our attention to the phenomena to which we are accus- tomed, but to a multitude of more unusual but not less important ones. It also strives to put this phenomena to experimental tests that will enable us to understand the laws connecting actions with their causes.

The early discovery of fire was a great step towards civilization. Thus the observation of simple natural phenomena enabled man to secure heat for cooking his food and warming his habitation. The engineer who plans a railroad, with its bridges, tunnels and grades, together with its locomotives and its trains, makes use at every step of knowledge of Physics. The surveyor ascertains how to cut through the hills and fill the valleys by the use of instruments which involve physical principle. By the discovery and application of physical laws, scientists and inventors have produced the telescope, telephone and all other useful a ppliances which form so important a part of our everyday life. ROBERT PRANK, ’20 HISTORY No group of studies surpasses in importance the Social Sciences. The keynote of modern education is “social efficiency”, and all studies should contribute to that end. The social studies, History and Civics, offered in our High School course, afford pecu- liar opportunities for this training of the individual as a member of society. Their study cultivates a sense of membership in the “world community”. This can only follow a knowledge of the history of other countries, as well as that of our own. We must not only know something of the history of foreign nations, but also understand our relations with some of the more important of them, since na- tions are becoming more dependent on one another, and are bound together in a larger community life by their common interest. The first year’s course dealt with Ancient History, which we studied under Mr. Worthington. While studying the Ancient History of the lands about the Mediterrane- an Sea, we also followed, from week to week, the Current History of the Great War, much of which took place in the same region. The second year’s work, on later European History, was made vital by the study of present day conditions. Much emphasis was placed upon the social, economic and industrial changes of recent times. Special attention was also given to study of those topics which throw light upon the causes, both immediate and remote, of the World War. A knowledge of these facts is absolutely essential to an understanding of the war, and America’s part in it. We made rapid progress in the study of United States History in our Senior year. This course was made very interesting through the use of source material secured by Miss Portmess, the History Instructor in the Junior and Senior years. During the latter part of the Senior year, we took a short course in Community Civics, which appropriately finished the course, as it is, in a sense, the application of history. RAY KOSTBADE. THE COMMERCIAL DEPARTMENT One of the most interesting and most essential courses of the High School in this day of rapid business progression is the Business Course. When our class entered High School, we were required to take the “Beginning Principles of Bookkeeping”, and we all worked hard for accuracy and neatness.

The ability to write a neat hand is one of the essentials of any efficient office em- ployee, and I fear that . too often our penmanship was neglected by us. In our third year, the complete Commercial Course was offered to us, which course included one and one-half years of shorthand and typewriting, one year of bookkeeping and one year of commercial arithmetic. In the pursuit of these subjects, definite knowledge must be obtained and a con- siderable degree of speed acquired, for it is only that knowledge and skill which is one hundred per cent perfect most of the time that can be used in business, and which com- mands good pay. We trust that, as the years pass by, the Commercial Department may broaden out to meet the ever increasing demands of the school and community. FRIEDA EWIGLEBEN. MANUAL TRAINING Manual Training, although it is not regarded as a science, like Physics and Chem- istry, is in a way a science, as it teaches one to be handy with tools, and to make good, useful articles. The boys in the class of 1920 started their training under the leader- ship of Mr. Epps, who knocked a good many points about using the tools into their heads. When we first entered the shop, we learned the names of the different tools, and how to use them. Then we were given the job of oiling and sharpening, so as to be ready for the year’s work. Then we were given some of the knottiest, roughest boards that could be found in the shop to use some of our energy on, in planing and squaring. After about a week of this work, we were given material for making game boards, tabourets and other small articles. As we advanced, we were given more difficult tasks to perform, which we did fairly well. Mr. Epps was our instructor in the seventh and eighth grades and also the first year of High School, and I am sure that we learned many things from him that will be useful in life. The second year, we started out with a new man, Mr. LaRue, who also proved to be a good instructor. As we knew quite a little about Manual Training by this time, we were able to make quite difficult pieces of furniture, such as tables and chairs. As there was no instructor during our third year, there was no advanced class. In the fourth year, although Mr. Johnson was here as instructor, none of the Senior boys saw their way clear to take up any advanced work. From all reports, the boys who are taking Manual Training are getting along successfully and doing good work. ROBERT FRANK, ’20. MATHEMATICS Mathematics, a useful as well as an interesting subject, claims every student in the Hobart High School for at least two years, as this is the amount of work required for graduation or entrance to the standard University. A number of students, realizing the benefits obtained from a thorough study of mathematics, have elected it in their Junior year. It is clear that a subject so important as mathematics should be studied diligently by every student in High School.

DOMESTIC SCIENCE The aim of this Department is to develop in the minds of the girls a knowledge of one of the most important factors towards making a successful home, namely, that of supplying the family with good, wholesome foods, prepared and served in an attractive and economic manner. One of our greatest desires upon entering High School was to be permitted to take up the study of Domestic Science, and our wishes were fulfilled when we were granted this privilege in our Sophojiiore year. We all entered with a determination to “show the world what we could do” in the way of cooking, and we succeeded admirably well. Everything proceeded smoothly, except for a few unavoidable accidents in the form of a burnt finger or burnt muffins, both being easily remedied. The most dreaded of all incidents, however, was the following comment from Miss Malone: “No, that towel’s not clean; it will have to be washed over”, after which we were to be seen rubbing the towel briskly once more. After a lesson in the laboratory, we marveled over our great accomplishment, and if none of the teachers were treated, we usually proceeded home with our cooked product, as proudly and cautiously as though we were bearing a great treasure. And why shouldn’t we? In order to enter the Domestic Science room, it was necessary to pass through the Manual Training room. In passing one day, we noticed the boys looking wistfully to- wards our objective, and so decided they must be hungry. Accordingly, with the con- sent of Miss Malone, we prepared a luncheon, consisting of cream puffs and cocoa, which we served, and which they thoroughly enjoyed. The Domestic Science Department, at present, is under the supervision of Miss Headsten, and, from all the reports, the students are very enthusiastic over their work. It has been said that “the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”, and with the experience we have had, we feel thoroughly confident that we could prepare a meal that any man with an ordinary stomach would declare to be “half decent” at least.

Just imagine an environment de- void of all musical sounds. They are now so much a part of your life that you do not realize their importance, and yet they are so vital that life without music would be impossible. All nature expresses herself musically — in the songs of birds, the bab- bling brook and the soothing sound of the wind, so beautifully il- lustrated for children by Robert Louis Stevenson. Did you ever enjoy the sound of the waves quiet- ly lapping upon the shore, or listen to the breakers roar as the y roll in? There is depth and beau- ty of tone in nature, if we will but learn to hear it. History tells us there was music in the early stages of civilization. True, it was very crude, but characteristic of the races wherein it originated, and a means of expression to them. Even they felt the need and desire for it and, according to their custom, enjoyed it as much as we do today. Music is now rightfully considered an essential part of a general educa- tion. It has a wonderful socializing influence in bringing the home and school together. Its service to humanity is as real as the multiplication table. Music is the smile of education. Since development of art is achieved by contact with the finer things in art. we must strive to discriminate, thereby raising our standard of appreciation to enjoy good music, intelligently. The value of music as a moral agent has been proven by philosophers and thinkers throughout all ages. Tts influence as an art and aesthetic force has been universally admitted. It is said that the moral status of a nation can be judged by the way people spend their leisure time. Music activities, such as choruses, bands, orchestras, are of incalculable benefit in directing the emo- tional feelings which are given expression in no other Way. Music is the mak- ing of a nobler, better and happier, citizenship. GENE VI EVE II1TTNER. MUSICAL ORGAN I Z AT I ONS Under the guidance anti direction of Miss Ilittner, a Quartet and Glee Club were organized. They were composed of students particularly interested in music, and anxious to do their part for the welfare of the school and en- tertainment of their fellow-students. The Glee Club rehearsed quite regularly in the music room of the Library, and although at times our ever present humor taxed the patience of our di- rector, the conscientious desire and effort to do things accomplished beneficial results. We appreciate the practice of singing together, the understanding of the blending of voices and control of same to produce the most pleasing ef- fect. The meaning of expressive singing was impressed upon us so that we are better able to judge our own singing and that of others. LeRoy Stark, Lynn Peterson, Ray Kostbade and Harry Hawke composed the Quartet. After struggling with the usual difficulties in the path of ama- teurs, we ventured to appear in convocation. Through the goodwill of our fellow-students, we were kindly received, and they demonstrated their enjoy- ment of our attempt to entertain. Our listeners found as much pleasure in our humorous selections as we did in giving them. We hope that our effort to establish a Glee Club and Quartet has called to attention the need of these organizations in student life, and we believe that in order to make Hobart High School rank with the best, they should be made permanent.

In the opening scene, George proposes to Lizzie, and during the conversation a quarrel develops between the servants over the maid ' s refusal to say, ‘ ‘ Thank Heaven, the ta- ble is set”. The groom enters during the he ight of the argument and, after silently enjoying the scene, makes his presence known to the servants. This abruptly ends the scene. Upon the tardy arrival of the bride, dinner is served. Robert tells her the amusing incident he has just wit- nessed. She. immediately takes Liz- zie’s part, and a second quarrel rapidly develops, in which the bridegroom is very gentle, but obstinate. Grace refuses to say, “Thank Heaven, the table is set”, when urged to do so to please him. The parents of the bride now arrive to dine with them, and find their daughter in tears. She begs them to take her home with them, and complains of the absurd request of her husband. Upon the second recounting of the servants’ quarrel, and their own, the father feels it is a very small matter, and declares with assurance that his wife would say, “Thank Heaven, the table is set”. The result startles him, for she refuses with even more “snap” than the other ladies. The groom feels that all is over, but lays the birthday present he has brought on the table, and gives way to despair. Seeing the grief of her hus- band (and the gift), arouses the sympathy of the bride. She says, “Thank Heaven, the table is set”. Her mother is surprised into saying these words. After much persuasion, Lizzie does also, and the curtain falls on a harmonious family gathering. Our class took pride in the dramatic ability of our representative mem- bers.

This year the Commercial Club of Hobart decided that the signing of the Armistice on November 11, 1918, was of such great, importance that another celebration must be held in its honor. At one minute to eleven, bells were rung and whistles blown. At this signal, every one stood and faced the east for one minute, and then, still fac- ing the east, they sang “America”. After this ceremony, school was dismissed until one o’clock. All the places of business were closed at noon, not to be opened the rest of the day. Two aviators from Gary agreed to do a few “stunts’’ for the school chil- dren and others as well. They started their performance at 4 p. m., and it lasted about one hour. Some of the actions were looping the loop and drop- ping several hundred feet and suddenly rising. This was enjoyed by every idr. ‘Cc- one. When six o’clock came, every Ilobarr- ite was ready to get a free “handout” ar the Watson build- ing. Every woman in Hobart, contrib- uted to this huge supper, thus making enough for all. There were all sorts of pies, cakes, sand- wiches, pickles and cook- ies i m agin a b I e. Men, women, boys and gilds had all they could eat. and more too. A little later in the evening all the men and boys who had fought for Uncle Sam marched down Main street, accompanied by the Hobart Band. The Commercial Club arranged for a vau- deville performance to be given on the porch of the hotel. There was a quartet from Chicago, who sang several selections, humorous and otherwise. Charlie Chaplin then appeared, to show us how lie could swallow a broom, and how he could shed tears by the buckets full. This feature amused the youngsters very much. As soon as Charlie Chaplin had convinced every one that he could do these things, Punch and Judy began their performance, ft lasted for some time. When this was over, the crowds sang “America”, and tried to drown each other in confetti. It was about nine-thirty p. m. when the orchestras were heard tuning their instruments in both the Community Hall and Odd Fellows’ Hall. Stir- ling’s Orchestra played in the Community Hall and Perry’s in the Odd Fel- lows’ Hall. Neither hall was large enough to hold every one, so a large crowd was left to dance on the newly cemented Main Street, while the Hobart Band played for them. The townspeople enjoyed themselves until early in the morning of the twelfth, when they decided that it would be best for them to go home and get a few hours’ sleep before beginning the routine of a new day. •MARGARET GERBER, ’20. L LOG CABIN PICNIC or WEENIE ROAST. One afternoon Mr. Fowble came into the Study Hall and told us that, if we wished, we could have a school picnic. This, of course, met with our unani- mous approval, and the day set for the “jubilee” was September 19. When Friday came, we met in the Study Hall, as usual, and after a few kind words from the teachers, including such phrases as, “Now, don’t disturb the people as you pass by their houses”; “Don’ salvage any of the apples that are on the ground” (which, of course, we didn’t, or wouldn’t!!), and “Be careful and do not get into mischief”, we departed for Larson’s Log Cabin and — liberty ! We bad two visitors with us on our “spree”, Mrs. Fowble and Mrs. Small. All the teachers were there, and once or twice we caught them with a smile on their faces, when Mr. Fowble was not looking. However, we have a fine bunch of pupils, and did not report them ; and it has been said that many of us received very good grades on our cards for that month! 1 wonder why? You’d be surprised ! Moral: It pays to think twice before you speak! The big game of the day was “Three Deep”, which was most exciting and nerve-racking. There was always the fear that some one would step in front of you, and you would be the one to be chased ! Shocking things will happen ! After the game, many of the girls, and some of the teachers, also, were seen wearing the very latest in skirts — wide, you know, due to the “elasticity” of the cloth ! ! ! Many other games were played, and enjoyed, and at one time a show was in progress for the benefit of the Belgians!! What say? Out of the confusion, the boys made one grand rush for the woods, while the girls stood on their toes in impatience to know what was the trouble. It could be anything, from a squirrel hunt to a fight!! The boys returned, how- ever, with their arms full of wood, and the great mystery was solved as tiny fires began to appear all over the ground. We got out our “weeners” and, after much hunting for sticks, we finally got them roasted and ate them con- tentedly, after all the excitement of the day. When the great day was over, every one was tired, but happy, and as we took our way homeward, we all agreed that it was the most enjoyable day; besides, we didn’t feel near as ‘ ’fraid’ of our teachers as we had before we started. As an annual event, we can highly recommend school picnics. VERA QUINLAN.
