As the faculty seem to think it is they
Who are most important, I'll not say nay.
But with little comment of either kind
Will do my best to bring them to mind.
A man must surely have much wit,
Who would in Mr. Lowery's place fit.
He's superintendent of all the schools,

The Commercial Department is shared by
Miss Wolf and Miss Reynolds joint duty

Facts of the business side of living.
Miss Bell, all accuracy and precision,

They patiently prod their classes along.
Miss Evans to girls is trying to impart,

When we, as Freshmen, entered the
portals of Hoopeston High, guided
only by tradition and strange tales of
high school life, our predictions for
our future existence were anything
but of the cheerful variety. Entirely
unknown to us were the trials and
tribulations of the average high
However, as time progressed, we
lost our shy and unassuming decor-
um and blazed forth in all our glory.
Our Freshman year was not marked
by anything conspicuously prominent
although we filled very capably the
berths occupied by the class of 1926
the year previous. Our lines of en-
deavor followed almost in congruency
with those of our predecessors. This
much, however, is in a great measure
true of all Freshmen classes. Our
chief accomplishment during that
year consisted in the publishing of the
first of our annual class magazines,
"The Freshmen Broadcasting Sta-
tion," which has been followed by
"The Sophomore Magazine" and "Ye
Olde Junior Yeare Bookef' These
constitute the body of our literary
ln the fall of our Sophomore year,
ofiicers were elected and class sweat-
ers agreed upon. Our sweaters, at-
tractively designed and colored in the
class colors, navy blue and steel grey,
immediately drew the favorable at-
tention of the school at large and our
importance in the paths of school en-
deavor was at last recognized.
blossomed forth that fall when Glenn
Bell won his letter in football and
firmly established our class in the
realm of sport. In basketball our
number of athletes was greatly in-
creased when four of our number
gained recognition. The following:
Earle Nelson, Glenn Bell, Tate Duley
and Raymond Cooper, constituted the
number which gave us supremacy
over the other classes in this line. In
track we were ably represented by
Robert Welty, whose speed and en-
durance enabled him to win his let-
ter as well as several trophies in vari-
ous track events held in the state last
Gur Junior year has been one of
triumph. In sports, musical enter-
tainments and all lines of activity our
efforts have been rewarded with suc-
cess. The football team contained
three Juniors while three others won
letters, the basketball team, with one
exception, was made up of Juniors,
and we look forward to having several
men on the track squad. The semi-
chorus this year will largely consist
of Juniors, although the other classes
will also be well represented. It must
also be remembered that the semi-
chorus last year consisted, to a great
extent, of members of the class of

ably in the past, the class of '27

O'ur hist'ry isn't long you see,
Imagine then, that you are "me."
Pondering, wondering what to write,
Thinking hard with all my might.
In nineteen hundred twenty-four,
"Swede" won a letter, nothing more.
Our magazine also went out,
T'was nothing much to rave about.
We were inexperienced and young,
And our fame as yet remained unsung.
In nineteen hundred twenty-iive,
v No one knew we were alive,
Although some won football praise,
Which deserves to have a phrase.
In nineteen hundred twenty-six,
With seniors we began to mix.
Our boys went out for basketball,
And that surely isn't all.
They helped win games,-
You know their names.
Some of us can sing
And joy to music-lovers bring,
Tho' none have reached the semi-chor
You must bring in we're not of age.
Our magazine will soon be out,
Of course a few of uswill pout.
It's just a natural thing to do,
Things cannot suit both me and you.
This is naught to what we'll do,
Watch your step, for we'll surprise you!

In the fall of 1922 Glenn D. Brasel
came to Hoopeston High School as
coach. Since then, Hoopeston has
been regarded as a strong contender
in all branches of athletics.
The first season of' football under
Coach Brasel was very successful,
considering that a new method of
coaching was being introduced. The
basketball team won the District
Shield, the Hrst one ever won by a
The following year was even more
successful than the first. The foot-
ball team won six games, lost one and
tied one. The basketball squad won
first place in the county tournament
and the track team brought home
honors from both the state and coun-
ty track meets.
The past year has been one of the
most successful in athletics, as the
football team won six games and lost
two. The cage squad carried off sec-
ond place in the district tournament
--and defeated East Lynn.
The enthusiasm of Coach Brasel
has been caught by the entire student
body, which has striven to co-operate
with him in his call for volunteers.
Coach Brasel is a strong advocate of
"hard but clean playing." He has the
"pep" which makes winning teams
and never gives up at the sight of de-
feat. He has taught us the meaning
of sportsmanship and loyalty.
The student body and citizens of'
Hoopeston sincerely hope that Coach
Brasel will return to Hoopeston High
next year and continue to build his

After a few weeks of practice our
team met Ridgefarm High and
started the season with a rush, de-
feating them with a score of 39 to 0.
From the start of the game until the
finish it was no difficult matter to see
which team was best.
H. H. S., 65 Paxton, 0
Hoopeston next journeyed to Pax-
ton and played. The field was in poor
condition and it was difficult for
Hoopeston to show her real strength.
The Paxton team had us outweighed
by many pounds, but with the team
working to perfection, H. H. S. left
that city with another shut out vic-
tory to her credit.
H. H. S., 18g Georgetown, 0
The heavily rated Georgetown
team was next on our schedule and it
was also played away from home. H.
H. S. did not show the team work that
usually was displayed, and the half
ended 0 to 0. In the second half
Hoopeston came back strong and
played a Very good brand of football,
the result being three touchdowns.
H. H. S., 195 Watseka, 6
This was the first of Hoopeston's
games on her own field. Watseka was
determined to put a stop to our win-
ning streak, but she had no success.
The game started fast, but before
long the home crew had the game
salted away. Watseka did succeed
in crossing our goal line, and this put

ing break up the other team's play.
Ingle, playing his last year of foot-
ball, proved a good manager of the
team. His head work was of the best
and he was also an able passer and
kicker. He was always a good re-
ceiver of punts and gained many
yards by this method. He will be
greatly missed the coming season.
Tate had the weight and height and
this determined the breaking up of
the other team's plays. He was
equally as good on the offense, smear-
ing passes and making large gains.
He will be with the team next year
and, being more experienced, should
show up well.
Davis, Harold-Right Tackle
Davis, a sophomore playing his
first year of football, showed up well.
He was used in the backfield at first,
but, on account of his size, the coach
moved him to the line. He always
played a hard game and many times
would throw men for losses. He is
the main cog around which the coach
will build that side of his line next
Leach, another senior, played his
second and last year of high school
football. He was used as a backfield
man last season, but because of his
weight was moved to the line. He
gave all he had at all times and was
always helping break up opponents'
plays. He will leave a hole in the line
that will be hard to till next season.
Keith, another senior, played a fine
game at center. He was on the in-
jured list earlier in the season, but
played enough games to show his
stuff. He was fast and therefore hard
to keep from breaking up plays. He
was an accurate passer and made
large holes which meant gains. Very
few players ever came over him that
were not stopped. He will be greatly
missed next season.
Reed, a sophomore, played his first
year of football. He was used on and
od last year, but failed to make the
squad. He had the weight and speed
and this aided him in throwing men
for losses. He will be back next year
and should be of much help to the
"Mussie," a senior, ended his foot-
ball career for H. H. S. this year. He
was the man around which that side
of the line was built. Injuries kept
him out of a few games, but he played
enough to show his real worth to the
team. He seldom failed in making
holes and take his man out of the
play. He was a sure tackle and very
few plays got by him. With him out
of the line, a large gap is left to be
filled next season.
"Nellie," a junior, playing his first
year as regular, played a whale of a
game. He was always breaking up
opponents' plays and because of his
height he had the ability to go up in
the air and snare passes. He should
be of great aid to next year's grid-
ironers. He was another man from
Hoopeston on the all-county team.
"Bob," a junior, played his first
season of football. He played in sev-
eral games and showed up well. He
has speed and is a good receiver of
passes. He will be of great value to
the team next season.
This was "Swede's" first year of
football and he performed well. He
had the weight and speed for a line-
man. He played in several games
and showed opposing schools that H.
H. S. was not weak in linemen. He is
a senior and this will be his last year
playing football for H. H. S.

I Earle N elson-Guard
1 "Nellie," captain of this year's five,
always played a clean, fast game of
ball. His floor work was always of'
first caliber and this helped to win
many games. He has a good eye for
long shots and seldom finished a game
without a few of these to his credit..
He played excellent ball in both tour-
naments, and was given a position on
the all-county and all-district teams.
This was his second year with the
team, but he has another year at
school. He will be of great help to
next year's squad, and should have
another great season.
"Tuck," one of the outstanding
guards in the county, played a whale
of a game during the first semester.
He always guarded his man closely
and this helped to hold down the op-
ponents' score. He is a senior and
will be greatly missed by the team
next year. On account of the semes-

end of the first semester and his
absence somewhat weakened the
team for the tournaments.
Bell, playing his second year of
basketball, p l a y e d sensationally
throughout the season. His close
guarding was a feature in most of the
games played. He proved his ability
in guarding when he held players of
the opposing teams from scoring as
much as they usually did. He played
a good brand of ball in both tourna-
ments and was a main factor in the
team's success. He is only a junior

help put the fighting spirit into the
Tate is captain of next year's five,
and was one of the outstanding play-
ers in the county. His height makes
him an ideal player to break up the
opposing team's formations and he
proved this in many games this sea-
son. His all-around playing in the
district tournament won him a posi-
tion on the first all-district team. He
is fast and has a good eye for basket
shooting, which will make him a very
valuable man next year. He will make
an ideal leader and with a complete
team of experienced men should come
through with a first class team.
Scott In gle-Forward
"Scottie" played an evenly balanced
game throughout the season. He was
our main scoring threat, always get-
ting his share of the points. He
played good ball in both tournaments
and scored heavily against the strong-
est teams. He was lightning fast,
could dribble, pivot and shoot with
the same ability. He was another of
the squad that was named on the all-
district team. He is a senior and his
loss will be felt when next year's
squad starts practice. '
"Bill" also is only a junior and will
be with the team again next year. He
played regularly during the second
semester and proved he was a basket-
ball star. The game was not new to
him either, because he had been on
the squad the year before. He is
small but has the speed and ability to
evade the best of guards. He is a
point getter and always had several
baskets to his credit when the game
"Bob" played in several games dur-
ing the season and showed his
"stuff" He is fast and has a good
eye for shooting, which will make him
a valuable man next year. In several
of the games he played, a large share
of the scoring was done by him. He
knows the game and will see more
service on the hard Wood next season.
Davis, a sophomore, saw service in
several games and was developed in-
to a good player. He has the speed
and size and a fairly good eye for
shooting. He also will be a valuable
man to have next season.
Buryl, another sophomore, played
in enough games to win a letter. He
is a player determined to win, and
puts the fight into the team. With
a little more weight he should have
a good season next year. '

as a regular."-Brasel.
THE DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
H. H. S., 22g Catlin, 21
Hoopeston played the strong Catlin
five in her first game of the tourna-
ment. The Catlin team had made a
strong bid for supremacy in the coun-
ty, but dope was now favoring H. H.
S. The game started fast with
Hoopeston taking an early lead. It
looked as if Hoopeston would have an
easy time defeating them, the score
m PICAYUNE m
at the half standing 16 to 8. Catlin
was not to be outdone and came back
strong and played H. H. S. to a stand
still, but when the final gun sounded
the score showed that Catlin was
nosed out by a one point margin.
Hoopeston's superior playing in the
first half had won them victory.
H. H. S., 243 Oakwood, 10
Our second game was with Oak-
wood and again H. H. S. proved su-
perior. Oakwood played a hard game
the first half and it ended 9 to 2 in
favor of Hoopeston. The hard after-
noon game began to tell on Oakwood
and Coach Brasel's cage squad piled
up a large score. This allowed him to
remove some of his regulars and give
them a good rest for the next game.
By winning this game we entered the
semi-finals, our opponent being the
strong East Lynn five.
H. H. S., 263 East Lynn, 17
Hoopeston had been beaten by this
team three times this season, but
Coach Brasel's team was now work-
ing to perfection, and needed this
game to enter the finals. The game
started fast with Hoopeston sinking
the first basket. Hoopeston was then
never headed and held the lead
throughout the game. From the start
until the finish Hoopeston took East
Lynn by surprise, and our players
were always breaking up East Lynn's
plays before they got under way. The
Hoopeston players came back on the
fioor in the second half determined to
hold the lead and, with each member
of the squad playing his best game of
the season, ended the winning streak
of the county champs. This was one
of the cleanest and best played games
of the tournament.
H. H. S., 83 Danville, 8
Danville was doped to win the tour-
nament and they had little difficulty
in defeating our worn out team. The
Hoopeston players seemed tired from
the afternoon's game with East Lynn
and were unable to hit their usual
stride. Danville took the lead from
the start and held it throughout.
Hoopeston's plucky little five, know-
ing they were playing against odds,
came back in the second half deter-
mined to fight. Hoopeston fought an
uphill battle throughout, but the
scrappy little players always had the
old H. H. S. fighting spirit. Coach
Brasel used several formations to
win, but Danville's lead was too great.

The student body and sport follow-
ers of H. H. S. are looking forward to
a successful season in all branches of
athletics. We should have one of the
most sucessful seasons in years be-
cause in all branches of athletics
there is a complete squad of letter
men left. The basketball squad seems
to have the best chance for a cham-
pionship team, only two regulars be-
ing lost. Other schools in the county
lose a number of star performers, and,
while new teams are being formed at
these schools, our coach will have
prkactically his same basketball team
The football team should do won-
ders again next season, there being
eleven letteri men left. Captain Bell
and Cardiff will be the only men left
in the backfield and around these an-
other backfield will have to be formed.
Captain Bell plays a halfback posi-
tion and is one of the best backsin
the county, while Cardiff will handle
the team at the quarter position.
Nelson and Duley have been devel-
oped -into a great pair of fiankmen
l lllEiCg..LflllDim lH
and, with Welty capable of handling
either end, this department will not
be weak. A good pair of guards have
been developed from Reed and Stan-
ley and both will be a great aid to
the team next season. The Davis
brothers are capable of handling the
tackle positions, or either can be
moved to the backfield if this depart-
ment is weak. Endsley played in
several games and he will hold down
the center position. Merritt was
used in the line in several games this
season, and probably will be used
there again next season. There were
other men that looked promising and
several of them will be seen in action.
The cage squad will be a strong
contender for honors next season,
only two regulars being lost by grad-
uation. Nelson, captain of this year's
team, will be back again at his favor-
ite position, and should have another
successful season. Duley, the lanky
center, also has played two seasons
on the squad and around him a great
number of the plays Will start. Bell
has played a steady game the past
two years and, with him back, the old
fighting spirit will not be lacking.
Cooper, the fourth of the two-year
letter men, should also have another
succesful season. He is small, but his
speed, along with his basket shoot-
ing, has made him a valuable man.
Welty, Cardif, and Davis played
enough games to win a letter and
each will be a valuable man next sea-
A number of the above mentioned
athletes are capable of winning a
position on the track squad, and sev-
eral will be working for honors along
this line. More interest is being taken
in track each season and H. H. S. will
win honors in this sport as in others.
l SENIOR LETTER MEN
The athletes in the class of '26 are
the first that have been four years
under the coaching of Glenn D.
Brasel. Now he sees several athletes
that he has started taken from him
by graduation. Each year there are
athletes lost by graduation and this
breaks up many a good team. This
year not as many athletes are lost as
in the past few years, but still they
all played important parts in ath-
letics. There will be seven letter men
lost this year. Some of these men
probably have finished their athletics
and will start work, while others will
undoubtedly participate in different
branches of college athletics.
Those who will be taken by grad-
uation are: Creamer, captain of the
1925 gridironers, who played a back-
field position, guard on the cage squad
and dashman on track team, Ingle,
quarterback, forward on cage squad,
captain of 1926 track team, Leach,
guard on football squad, dashman on
track team, Musson, tackle on foot-
ball squad, Vines, center position on
football squad, Carlson, sub tackle,
and Prickett, track squad.
These are athletes whose places
will be hard to fill next year and they
will be greatly missed. We hope their
places will be filled with men of the
same caliber, and that the same coach
who has developed so many stars at
Hoopeston will be with them.
The county track meet was held at
Georgetown May 1 with eleven schools
fighting for honors. Westville won
the meet after a hard battle with
Georgetown and East Lynn. Hoopes-
ton did not score the points that were
expected, but showed strength in the
relay, placing second. Members of
the squad who won places are:
100 yd. Dash .................... Welty, third
50 yd. Dash ..................... Welty, third
880 yd. Dash ..................... Reed, third
Pole Vault ................. Capt. Ingle, first
High Jump ..... .. Capt. Ingle tied for third
220 yd. Hurdles ................ Vines, fourth
The relay team with Leach, Reed,
Daughters and Welty running true to
form, took second honors after a hard
race with Westville. The record that
was established in 1925 was not equal-
ed or broken in this year's race.

Yes, that is the very thing for my

something like-hum, hum, well, now,

The request is for a very humor-

funny. Well, then, a very humorous
story is one that will make the reader

my finger in the boiling liquid as well.
I looked up out of the corners of my
eye, but wifey wasn't lookingg so I
rubbed the injured member on my
napkin and finished doing justice to
a really good breakfast.
After breakfast, I went again to
work out the beginning of a wonder-

looked at the clock, I found I had been

in my chair and then put all my
energy into trying to keep myself
from falling backward. Darn these

ent from the Wife, I can't get rid of it.
I caught a glimpse of the sky-just
a little bit of a glimpse-but oh, how
wondrous looking! Believe I could
think better if I was out in the open.
I jumped up and grabbed my hat, still
holding onto my notebooks and pencil.
I walked down the street, absorbed
"Oh, shucks, might as well ride,"
I thought after walking three blocks.
I stepped into the street, ready to hail
a bus, but still thinking of my story.
I hailed the first vehicle I saw,
mounted, and sat down. This was a
relief after walking so long. Well,
now how would something like this-
"What are you doing in my car ?"
I glanced up at the speaker of these
curt Words. I looked into the steely
eyes of one of the aristocrats of the
city, and one I had wanted to astound
with my literary efforts.

I felt smaller than a-Well, the

Well, then, there was lunch and
then a whole afternoon vacant. How
can one think about his literary
career on such an afternoon? I

my eyes closed once when I didn't

During the basketball season re-
cently ended, remarks were often
heard concerning the poor support of-
fered the team this season. It is real-
ized, however, that this lack of inter-
est was due largely to the fact that
cramped quarters, bad weather, and
a general slump in enthusiasm for
school activities prevented many, who
would otherwise have been on the
spot, from attending. Under the
present conditions pertaining to gym-
nasium space and seating capacity, it
cannot be predicted that a better
position along these lines can be at-
tained next season. However, in the
hope that our facilities may be in-
creased by next year we wish, at this
time, to solicit the most loyal support
of the student body for all athletic, as
well as other activities of the school.
No complaint can be lodged against
the support accorded the football
squad this year. The student body
was on hand practically en masse for
the greater part of the games. But
this state of affairs suffered a com-
plete reversal at the start of the
period allotted to basketball. A school
of over three hundred pupils should
furnish support of at least one hun-
dred and fifty at any game. The
average attendance from the school
was about twenty-five and more often
an even dozen constituted the body of

The school expects victory, roots for

team when they get defeat instead.
Yet they are not willing to, by a little
interest and effort on their part, aid
in securing their cherished desires.
East Lynn, Danville, Rankin and
other towns of the county support
their teams loyally and as a result
are often rewarded with success. Is
Hoopeston, the second largest city in
cities to out-do her? The student
body sets the example. The towns-
people will follow. You who scoff,
you who deride and laugh when news
of a defeat is brought to your ears,
stop and think. Have you done your
part? Are you doing all that you
can to bring success to the home
team? Why not a record-breaking
attendance at all activities in '26 and
'27? -Tate Duley, '27.

A great number of people have re-
cently acquired a habit which is ap-
palling in its rapid growth. I refer
to the chewing of gum. While some
of the girl students have great talent
in this line, most are just plugging
along, chewing their five or six sticks
Watch that girl-she is an artist.
See how she daintily draws out her
gum, swinging it in artistic circles.

Well done. Now the one who sits
behind her is an orthodox chewer who
aspires to nothing higher than "pop-
ping" her gum.
An enormous amount of energy is
expended by these people. Perhaps
one who had a "head for figures"
could figure that enough energy is
wasted in one day to win a war, or
pass the League of Nations off on the
American people or enforce prohibi-
tion. Yet these people, entirely un-
aware, chew on and on, their jaws are
the nearest approach to perpetual
Perhaps if these people would give
the same amount of energy for think-
ing, there would be more good grades
and fewer zeros in class recitations.
When the Almighty learned that
cows had taken up this chewing fad,
and saw what energy was expended
in supplying their poor jaws, He
blessed them with a cud. Perhaps He
will do the same for humans, but now

And this matter of parking: It
is estimated that if the gum were not
cleared out daily in a large New York
depot, it would be necessary to aban-
don it in a year. This abominable
business of parking gum on all the
furniture handy is very hard on the
morals, especially of janitors. How
can you expect him to resist the
temptation to overhaul his choice ex-
pletives when he finds gum every-
What's the world coming to?
Something must be done. Maybe an
amendment to the constitution would
help. The thing to do is to provide
adequate parking space, and compel
students to park their gum before

Q Q J. R. Gregory, an expert, sent out grease almost as gold does to mer- v
by England, said that diamonds could
never be mined in Africa, because of
the formation of the country. Dia-
monds were then found by washing
the sand and gravel of Orange river.
In 1871 one of the richest mines in
Africa was discovered, the Kimber-
ly mine. At first claims were al-
lotted of only a few feet square, but
later many had allotments of five
square yards. Diamonds were at first
mined by the pick and shovel and
screening eliminated the rocks. This
was done several times before being
washed and the diamonds finally
found. In 1872 an American steam
shovel started operations, and this
made work considerably faster.
As the mines became deeper the
ground around sank, making opera-
tions more difficult. This started un-
derground mining, drafts being sunk
many feet below the surface. Also
as the mines became deeper the soil
changed, the last being a bluish color,
which decomposes when exposed to
the air for any length of time. This
blue soil and rock is taken to places
several miles in extent, spread out
and harrowed by machinery driven by
steam haulage. This is done for sev-
eral days before being taken to plants
curly, while the remainder of the con-
centrate passes off. The diamond then
is ready for the cutting and polish-
ing. These operations are performed
at the Kimberly mine which extends
over one acre. These different mines
are closely guarded night and day.
It is a very difficult matter in finding
any special method of mining, be-
cause of the different kind. of ground
that has to be tunneled through.
The problem as to the origin of the
diamond in several of these mines
has been studied with some success.
The deposits are circular or oval in
shape and are inclosed by a wall of
carbonoreous shale. The deposits
also consist of material called by
miners "yellow ground," and on going
deeper a region is reached known as
blue ground. These facts show that
the deposits probably are in some way
connected with volcanic activity. The
conditions necessary for the crystal-
lization of carbon in the form of dia-
monds need intense heat with great
pressure. Successful attempts have
been carried out reproducing these
conditions, proving that undoubtly
volcanic action is present in the for-

Art is essential in the homes,
schools, and everyday life. "What
good does art do in the homes ?" we
ask. To create out of a commonplace
and monotonous house a beautiful
and comfortable home is a work of
art which requires an artistic effort.
What would be the effect of a home
decorated in grotesque and gaudy de-
signs? If you would Walk into a home
like that you would shudder, and
quake, and the incorrect use of colors
'would recall to your mind the last
fight you had witnessed. The red
vase upon the mantel seems to be
making wry faces at the green tinted
walls. In a fit of extreme anger you
might wish to break the vase, for red
creates nervousness and anger. This
is not so of an artistically arranged
home. One which is planned with ex-
act color schemes denotes restfulness

economy in dress, to dignify the art
of home-making, to prepare good food
the right way, and to know the "why"
and "how" of doing things. Through
the efficient guidance of Miss Evans,
the Home Economics teacher, the
girls have learned to cut, fit and make
their own clothing in the latest mode
of fashion at a minimum expense.
In the fall of 1924, it was decided
to let the cooking' class demonstrate
their efficiency in the culinary arts by
conducting a cafeteria for the accom-
modation of those students who were
forced to carry cold lunches to school.
They prepared the food for the cafe-
teria during the morning classes un-
der the direct supervision of Miss
Evans. This gave the girls the ex-

The necessity for such a course is
made clear in words from Samuel
Smiles: "Every human being has du-
ties to be performed, and therefore
has need of cultivating the capacity
for doing them, whether the sphere
of action be the management of a pro-
fession or the government of a na-

2 The Value of Manual Training, 3
"'Boys will be boys" is an age-old
saying, and few of us will ever real-
ize how true it is. Every normal boy,
from 6 to 60, likes to. make things out
of wood. The first thing any normal
boy wants is a hammer. How often
fond parents remark to each other,
"Oh, George, he is going to be a car-
penter, just like you." Then "George"
will throw out his chest and remark,
"He sure handles that hammer like
an expert," and then he will make
several hasty remarks when baby
knocks the side out of his new radio
set. A hammer is the first thing a
baby wants. It makes a great deal
of noise if properly used. As baby
grows older the designs on different
articles of furniture grow tiresome
and it is so easy to make new ones
with dad's saw. This generally is
rather hard on baby in the end, but
a licking or so does not offset the
pleasure derived from that pleasant
diversion. Baby grows older and be-
gins to put his talents to other uses,
where they will be better appreciated,
classes with your hands folded. In
this department a boy works off that
such as using a plane on the library
table or some other diverting pastime.
VVhen he gets old enough to go to
school he is quite adept in the noble
art of carpenter work. He begins to
make small boats and other things so
dear to the heart of any Amerfcan
boy. He spends his time up until he
is nine or ten years of age making
anything that he takes a fancy to.
Then Manual Training is given in the
school work and that boy becomes an
ardent admirer of that class and can
hardly wait until he takes his first
piece of work home to proudly display
to mother and dad. Then dad will
look it over and say: "Son, I couldn't
have done it better myself." Then
life seems brighter. In the prelimi-
nary course given in the schools the
boy can make almost any article he
desires. When the boy gets in High
School he is beginning to work with
some set goal in his mind. About
thirty per cent of the boys in school

take Manual Training because it is
much more interesting than sitting in
surplus energy that all "boys" have,
when it would otherwise be put into
causing mischief in class. If a boy
wants to be a carpenter he is instruct-
ed in the best ways of using the dif-
ferent tools. Everybody at some time
or other has some use for Manual
Training. How many people today
know how to make a Morris-Tennin
joint? A groove joint? An ordinary
cross joint? About one in a hun-
dred. People today seem to think
that it is much better to know how
to make a fine speech than it is to
know things that are of value to you.
Because you can .speak is no sign that
you are a Lincoln or a Washington.
Learn the practical things first and,
later, if you have time, devote it to
Therefore I maintain that Manual
Training is really an essential subject
for any boy and believe that every-
one would benefit if it were a required
subject. -Howard Musson, '26.

United States currency is the
money authorized by the United
States Government. It includes me-
tallic and paper money.
Metallic money consists of gold,
silver, nickel and bronze coins. They
are stamped at the mints in Philadel-
phia and San Francisco.
If anyone has gold and wants it
coined, if he presents it at one of
these mints it is coined free for him,
but a small fee is charged for the al-
loy used to make it, so it will be dura-
If anyone has gold and wishes to
store it or export it, the mint will put
it into gold bars and put the govern-
ment stamp on it to show its fineness
The United States Treasury will
not accept coins that have lost more
than one-half their weight. When-
ever the bank receives gold coins it
weighs them and the one who accepts
them is the loser.
Silver is purchased by the superin-
tendent of the mint under the super-
vision of the Director of the mint.
The dimes, quarters, half dollars and
dollars are now made out of silver.
The value of a silver dollar in 1923
was sixty-three cents and in 1920 one
doilar and twenty cents, so the price
changes from year to year.
The five cent piece is made of three
parts copper and one part nickel. The
cent is made of 95 per cent copper and
5 per cent tin or zinc.
When any one owes you a debt you
are required to take United States
notes, gold and silver dollars, half dol-
lars, quarters and dimes up to ten
dollars, and nickels and pennies up to
twenty-five cents because by a law
these coins are legal tender.
Paper money consists of gold cer-
tificates, silver certificates, United
States Notes, National Bank notes,
Federal Reserve notes, and Federal
Reserve Bank notes.
When any one deposits gold in the
United States Treasury he receives
a gold certificate for the amount of
gold deposited. There is just the
amount of gold that there are gold
certificates. With silver it is the same
There is nothing back of the green-
backs but a promise from the United
States to pay and you do not have to
accept green-backs if you do not wish
to do so.
National bank notes are issued by
the ? of the
currency to the amounts of the bond
of the United States as a security.
- Page Fifty-One
National Bank notes now in circula-
tion will probably be retired by the
Federal Reserve Act.
Federal Reserve notes may be is-
sued by the twelve Federal Reserve
Banks, and these banks may also is-
sue Federal Reserve Bank notes.
The purpose of these notes is to in-
crease the value of the United States
The gold standard says that a gold
dollar consisting of twenty-five and
eight-tenths grains of gold, nine-
tenths fine-shall be the standard
unit of value, and all forms of money
issued or coined by the United States
shall be maintained at a parity of
value with this standard and it shall
be the duty of the Secretary of the
Treasury to maintain such parity.

Coach Brasel has only four letter
men to to build his track squad
around, but with an abundance of
promising material the team should
have a very successful season. On
account of the unfavorable weather
condition the team will not get into
shape until late. There is a host of
track candidates with only a few try-
ing for the field events. Captain Ingle
was a regular point getter last sea-
son, and should win a few more hon-
ors before the 1926 season is over.
In the dashes Welty, K. Prickett,
Daughters, Leach and Reed should
show up Well. In the weights there
are Reed, Leach and Cooper who have
been performing well in practice. In
the middle distance runs Carlson,
Vines, H. Prickett and Brewer show
Saturday, April 24, the blue and
and white track squad journeyed to
Decatur and participated in the an-
nual Miliken Relays. The best ath-
letes of the state were competing, and
considering this along with the un-
favorable weather conditions, Hoopes-
ton performed well. Captain Ingle
placed third in the high jump, and
could have placed in the pole vault if
he had not injured his leg. The med-
ley relay showed strength, being
nosed out at the tape for third place.
It was composed of Vines, Reed,
Daughters and H. Prickett. Others
that proved capable are Welty, K.
Prickett, Leach and Carlson. This
meet gave the coach an idea of the
team he will enter in the county.
Following are the other meets that
will be attended by the 1926 track
team: May 1, County Meet at George-
town, May 8, Sectional Meet at Wat-
sekag May 15 and 16, State Meet at
The state meet is different from
those of previous years. Before a
school is permitted to send its squad
to the state meet the athletes have

All schools are entered in the same

A MOTOR CATASTROPHE
The battery began feeding currants
to the engine who was sparking in
a most shocking manner under her
hood. The gears fell to embracing
each otherg the tires, after blowing
off a little air became very much in-
flated and kept handing around the
wheels, and they got to acting so soft
with the gasoline qwhich was tankedl
that the fly wheel got cranky and so
exhausted the engine that she choked
and they had to fan her. The head-
light got so provoked that it flared up
and went out, leaving them all in to-
tal darkness. The scandal was an
odorous one, but being a slight ex-
haustion, it was quickly muffled.
MAN'S POWER ALONE-
Nothing on earth can smile but'
man. Gems may flash reflected light,
but what is a diamond-flash compared
to an eye-flash and a mind-flash?
Flowers cannot smile, this is a charm
that even they cannot claim. It is the
prerogative of man, it is the color
which love wears, and cheerfulness
and joy-these three. It is a light
in the window of the face, by which
the heart signifies it is at home and
waiting. A face that cannot smile is
like a bud that cannot blossom, and
dries upon the stalk. Laughter is day
and sobriety is night, and a smile is
the twilight that hovers gently be-
tween both. -Exchange.
AIN'T IT SO?
Don't be what you ain'tg
Jes' be what you is,
Caze if you is not what yo' am
Den yo' am not what yo' is.
If you is jes' a little tadpole
Don't try to be a frog,
If you is Jes' de tail
Don't try to wag the dog.
You can always pass de plate
If you can't exhort an' preach 9'
If you is jes' a pebble
Don't try to be de beach.
Don't be what you' ain't
Jes' be what yo' is,
Caze de man what plays it square'
Am gwine to get his.
It ain't what yo' is has been,
It's what yo' now am is.

2. She maketh us to explain the constitu-
tion and exposeth our ignorance before
the whole class.
3. She restoreth our sorrow. She causeth
us to work long hours for our grades'
4. Yea. though we burn the midnight oil,
we shall gain no knowledge, for Ameri-
can History sorely troubles us. Laws
and wars, they distress us.
5. She prepareth a test for us in the pres-
ence of the whole assembly, our mem-

6. Surely brain trouble shall follow us all
the days of our lives and we shall be
troubled with stupidness forever.
A LESSON IN GRAMMAR
You see a beautiful girl walking down
the street. She is, of course, feminine. If
she is singular, you become nominative. You
walk across the street to her, changing the
verbal. If she is not objective, you become
plural. You walk home together. Her
mother is accusative, and you become im-
perative. Her brother is an indefinite ar-
ticle. You walk in and sit down. You talk
of the future, and she changes the subject.
Her father becomes present, and you be-
come the past participle.

A Freshman green,
A Senior gray,
Just the grass
A new butler had been engaged by Mr.
Highbrow to announce his guests at the
coming-out party of his daughter. A family
containing about eight members came, and
the butler announced them one at a time-
"Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Marjorie Smith, John
Mr. Highbrow reproved him and told him
to say something short and snappy.
In a little while the Penny family of six
The butler resolved to please, and an-
nounced-"Six cents have just arrived."
Cne of the brilliant Freshmen, Tom Mer-
ritt, to be exact, went to the doctor to have
his eyes tested. The doctor seated him in
a chair, and called his attention to a chart
across the room.
"Can you read the lower line '?" he asked.
"No," replied Tommy.
"Well," said the Doc, "these glasses will
fix you up so that you can read it."
"'I'hat's more than I expected, Doc,"
replied Tommy, "I never could read before."
Speaking of dumbbells, we have the pleas-

Lots of students refuse to buy their girls
a dinner, but will drive out to a fork in the
road and spoon.
We might have just the mostest fun,
If it wasn't for our teachers.
They think we should be perfect,
Like all the Sunday preachers.
We wish that they could ever learn
But We suppose they won't,
That we get mighty tired of hearing
541'-hat awful word "don't."
It's "Don't let me catch you whispering,"
"Nor don't you ever be late."
"Don't throw those notes across the floor,
Haven't I told you about that, Kate?"
"And dcn't you dare play hooky,
For I shall take your name,
And send you to the office,
To converse with Mr. Frame."
It seems to me we've never found
One thing we'd like to do,
But what there's a teacher close around,
That's got a don't or two.
And test day, that's the day that don'ts
Are worst of all the seven.
Oh, goodness, but we hope there won't,
Be any teachers in heaven.

award. After he had received the medal a.
chum asked what his father had given him
for earning this medal.
"H've you seen those ritzy Rolls-Royce
sport cars running around here ?"'
With an awed expression the chum
"Well, he gave me five dollars."
Soph-Well, I'l1 admit you know more
than I do.
Soph-Yes, you know me and I know you.
Wesley had just killed a fly. Teacher
became disgusted and said, "Wesley, that
will be the end of that!"
Wesley flocking at the remainsj-Yes, I
guess it was."
All the people dead who wrote it:
All the people dead who spoke it:
All the people die who learn it:
Blessed death-they surely earn it-Latin.
Oh, it's nice to have a notebook
In which to put your labors,
Oh, it's nice to have a notebook,
Especially for your neighbors.
It's nice to see it envied,
By those who are above you
And it's nice to see it copied
By those who really love you.
From a Freshman theme--Lincoln Wrote
the Gettysburg address, riding from Wash-
ington to the battlefield on an envelope.
Which? ? ? ?
He was standing in the parlor,
And he said unto the lightg
"Either you or I, old fellow
Will be turned down tonight!"
