But through the united efforts of the Staff and loyal support of the students, we have published a year book, which we believe does honor to the school, and to the class which it represents. The members of the Staff wish to send their best wishes to the ever-increasing multitude of "j,' readers, and sincerely hope that this book will prove a steadfast friend and companion, and bring to us all, much joy when our school days are but a golden dream of the past. -The Editor. T W 0 ' I The money gift is easy, there are hundreds here to pay, And settle back contented while the toilers work away. Nlen will dig into their pocket for the gold the cause may need, And then leave it for another to go out and do the deed, But in every worthy struggle that shall help the race to climb The world is always seeking for the men who'll give their time. The money gift is easy, but a better gift than pelf ls to dedicate to service, not your money, but yourself. For though gold and silver often are the things a cause demands, No righteous dream can triumph without willing hearts and hands. And in every field of service that is known to mortal ken You can hear the leader calling, not for money, but for men. The money gift is easy, many gladly pay the price, Who sit back in times of danger and refuse the sacrifice. There are men who give their money for a purpose that is line, Who never share the burdens or the bitter lighting line, But the man the world is seeking in the tasks it has to do ls the man who'll share the struggle and stay with it till it's through. -Edgar A. Guest Tlx ree Dedication To our parents, we the class of 1920 do gratefully dedicate this edition of the "KI", in appreciation of their support and sacrifices which have made this school and our education possible. I T Four Mother The noblest thoughts my soul can claim, The holiest words my tongue can frame, Unworthy are to praise the name More sacred than all other. An infant when her love first came- A man, l find it just the same: Reverently I breathe her name, The blessed name of mother. -George Griffith Fetter. Father "Father"-just "Father": What love breathes around that name wrought by love itself! Throughout the year more lavish of gifts than days of june, he finds happiness in bestowing happiness. Not only does he give comforts and ma- terial protection, but by his strength of spirit, by his sympathy and sincerity, by his experiences wrested from the years, by his joyous and youthful heart triumphing over grief and strife his ex- ample is itself a teacher of life's greater values.-Rena Albertyn Smith.

S., which considered materially, intellectually, and industrially, is surpassed by none. As we have already stated in the dedi- cation of this fourth volume of the "J", we, the student body of the j. T. H. S., appreciate to the fullest, the sacrifices and good will of the people of jersey County, who have made such advantages and enjoyment possible for us. There is no township high school anywhere that excels ours in modern equipment or in beautiful surroundings. Within the walls of this justly reverenced institution only those who have, undergone the test and proved themselves worthy may have the privilege of instructing the children of jersey County. Our athletic season this year has been highly successful. We won the Dis- trict tournament by a large margin, and did credit to the j. T. H. S. in the State tournament. Here again we were supported by the loyalty of the people of jer- sey County. The splendid support of the student body has also been a strong factor in our athletic accomplishments this year. Surely an organization with such foundations shall never terminate but shall strive onward and upward to an unparalleled attainment. Signed: -L. S. Gimmy. l lilovcn '1 wolwc I 4' ,............E ..

The other classes dared not laugh at us or call us "Greenies," because they were of our color, we being all in a new building and with new teachers. We therefore passed lightly and suc- cessfully through that usual stage of awe and confusion. We were allowed no privileges, however, by the haughty Seniors, such as the present Freshmen have enjoyed under our mild yoke, but were kept in constant obscurity by their ter- rible dignity. As Sophomores we executed what is commonly known as "Stepping out." With the Freshmen that year, we had some enjoyable times, individually and collectively, attending parties while the "big snow" was on. We were honored this year by having three men, Louis Giers, Clifford and Maurice Bell, on the basketball squad, also two members, Lewis Ballard and Lucian Dressel, in the Ciceronian Interscholastic Debating Society. As juniors we found our number greatly depleted, but possessed, neverthe- less, of mental faculties equal to offset this handicap. We performed our first social activity during this year by having a wiener roast, having attempted simi- lar affairs unsuccessfully during the preceding years. We entertained the Se- niors in the Spring with one of the most successful and elaborate Proms in his- tory. Miss Kindred, our class sponsor, gave us valuable service and advice, which we needed greatly. Our Senior year has passed all too quickly, and before we are fully aware of its passing we find ourselves standing on the brink of the precipice, facing the world. Yet our Senior year has been our happiest and most successful one. We have not been troubled by the interference of other classes or by fear of the teachers. We have enjoyed a wiener roast at Fitzgerald's wood and a dance at the Knights of Columbus' Hall, both of which proved enjoyable and financially successful. We have published a volume of "The j," which we are rightfully proud of, and have witnessed the High School in the best condition concerning all phases, in its history. We have in our class all types of members: wise men, fools or nuts, athletes, literary geniuses, musical prodigies and comedians. In closing we would not overlook the services rendered us by Mr. Henry and Miss Palmstrom who have been with us-the former four years, the latter three years, of our high school life. To the future Seniors of the J. T. H. S., we wish even a fuller measure of happiness and success. A Senior, '20. Psalm 139: "Such knowledge is too wmiderful fm' mo."-'l'lxo Trip: Student. Thirty-seven Senior Class Will We, the class of the j. T. H. S., 1920, having been proven to be of undoubteo superiority of mind, finding ourselves overburdened with knowledge, and our end fast approaching, do hereby solemnly affirm and publish this, our last will and testament.

Iunior Class History We, the present Junior Class, entered the J. T. H. S. in the Fall of 1917. We were prepared to show all other classes that, with all the advantages and brains we possessed. we could outclass them. Of course, we were thought to have a very greenish hue as all "Freshies" have, but then, after we were ordered around by the Seniors, ignored by the Juniors, and laughed at by the Sophomores, this soon wore off. Under the leadership of Albert Branom we weathered well and after many parties and enjoyable times we were respected by the Seniors. Our band was strengthened by sixteen new members at Christmas. John Dougherty served as captain and Mrs. Grogan as class sponsor in our Sopho- more year. We were now experienced students and looked down with much disgust on mere "Freshies." All the upper classmen were beginning to appreciate such a brilliant class. This year was spent in much studying and very good times, and we finished the year with an outing at Chautauqua. Now we are full fledged Juniors after many trials and tribulations of our former two years. We have chosen Fred Rowden as leader, and Miss Hedden as class sponsor. We are doing fine in our school work and have had many delightful times this year. We possess many talents as is shown by our musical ability. We are poets, and my! such rooters!! Our class always has a good spirit, never shirking when we a1'e needed and always helping in everything the school attempts. The basketball record of the Junior Class is one that the student body can well be proud of. Bud Giers was "sub" on the first team and is now captain of our wonderful team. Seago and Post are forwards on the first team also. So you see we have a good showing here. The Junior Class has played a big part in other activities as well as in basketball. During our Sophomore year we helped make the play, "Miss Cherry Blossom," a suc- cess, and "A Strenuous Life" would not have been so st1'enuous without us. Leading parts in "Fi-Fi of the Toy Shop" were taken this year by Junior girls and boys. Contests of any kind would fail without us for we not only add "enthusiasm" and "pep" to the contest but we usually win. Because of our wonderful success in the past, and of cur brilliant accomplishments in the present, we think it is not too much to predict that the class of 1921 will be the best class that the J. T. H. S. has yet known. -Catherine Stephenson. Standing fleft to rightj-Austin Yocom, John Dougherty, Peter Steckel, Raymond Piggott, Edward Allen, Loren Foiles, Clarence Spaulding, Russel Seago.

Psalm 17: "Thou hast proved."-'l'he Gu-mm-try Studs-nl. l 1 Forty-nine 4 A Earned Not Donated We, the Juniors of the Jerseyville Township High School, were not given four extra pages of the "J" as a token of the esteem the Seniors had for us but we worked hard and spent as much money as we dared for the honor. It was announced by Lucian Dressel, editor-in-chief of the 1920 "J," that the class who bought the most Annuals and paid for them would receive four pages in their Annual to prove their supreme worth. The Freshmen decided to run us a race, having in their favor the largest class in the High School. But being older, and therefore backed with heavier pocketbooks and our determination to carry out our reputation, we easily overcame them, so this introduces to you the class of 1921, prize-winne1's. Winners as Usual In October the J. T. H. S. was notified that their hrst art exhibit was to be held. The faculty decided to give a prize to the class, also the individual, selling the most sea- son tickets and pictures. The Junior Class received the first prize, which was an en- graved plate with "1921" on it, to be placed on one of the best pictures. Milo Wells received the individual prize, which was a large picture of "Stratford on Avon." Several notable memorials have been presented by former classes to the school, but there is one memorial now in the school which is worthy of special mention. It is "Prosperity Under the Law," presented by the Junior Class of the J. T. H. S. The Iunior Basketball Team We Juniors have a hard time organizing basketball teams, as our class consists almost wholly of girls. This year's team did very well, as we lost only one game dur- ing the entire season. This was one of those hard-luck games in which our ball would roll around the ring, and roll off the basket. We are good losers, and were glad to let the Freshmen win, as it was against them that we we1'e playing, because they are new to the business, and need all the encourage- ment that they can get. We would have had a stronger team than we did but some of our men were so good that they were needed for the big team. Giers, the all-star guard, was a Junior at the beginning of the year, and Post and Seago, those "peppy" little forwards, are full fledged Juniors. So, taking it as a whole, the Juniors have had a most wonde1'ful basketball season. RAH! RAH! HAH!-JUNIURS Are the Juniors right there when it comes to rooting? Well, yes! Of course the Juniors are talented in every line of endeavor, but one in which they excel is in giving loyal support to our marvelous basketball team. They are always on hand at all the games and don't mind letting every one else know it. And at Jacksonville! Well, didn't that crowd sit up and take notice when about twenty 'tCowvillains" fmostly Juniorsl, led by our illustrious Junior yell leader, Arch Nelson, made more fuss than all the rest of the crowd! If you want anything well done, leave it to the Juniors! Psalm el: "Stand in Awe."-That Uarrolltnn Team. Fifty THE JUNIOR BASKETBALL TEAM Left to Right--Earl Worthey, Raymond Piggott.

'f E. 1 1 1 - l l l I T Sophomore Class History Yes, you have seen our faces before, and in an Annual, too, if you please. Although we may look the same to you, we have changed vastly. We have acquired far more knowledge than we had a year ago. If you will but look at the title of this writing you will understand why this is so: WE ARE SOPHOMORES. We have accomplished what we, as Freshmen, thought would be a great achieve- ment: the acquisition of the name of Sophomore. Now our ambition is to become lofty and mighty Seniors. Furthermore, we all intend to reach this goal in not such a great lapse of time. Our class has grown since we were Freshmen-an unusual occurrence-and we now have forty-five in our class. The Freshmen and the Juniors have repeatedly tried to get ahead of us, and, in many instances, we regretfully admit, they have succeeded, not always, however, for, although we may not have as large a class as some of the others, did we not carry off the laurels on two occasions? First, we surpassed all of the other classes in the sale of tickets for "Fi-Fi," our class selling 3145.00 worth. And then, one of our number, Lulu Draper by name, brought fame to us again by winning in the pronunciation contest. Lulu for awhile stood alone against six other contestants, but in the end all took their seats, leaving Lulu winner of the contest. We have grown so fond of study this year that we have had no time to enjoy the wiener roasts and parties, that in our younger days we loved. We did have a Hal- lowe'en party, however, at the home of our class president, Robert Bowen. The initia- tion into the mysteries of Hallowe'en was a thrilling experience, and only those who were present could ever understand the feeling of it. We hope that in the future we shall have many more enjoyable times. We Sophomores are not only studious but thrifty as well. We are now planning a play by which to make money for the class treasury. To vary and give spice to our lives we are hoping for many pleasant and happy times to crown our busy and strenuous Sophomore year. To see the faces that are portrayed on the opposite page next year you may look where the Juniors are found this year. Every one of us firmly intends to be found there, and so we will say our final goodbys to you as Sophomores, and hope to meet you again next year as Juniors. -Virginia S. Robinson.

S. squadron was organized at the beginning of the school term. The yacht was well manned with Gordon Wiles, Captaing Rosalind Keely, First Mate, Lawrence Keller, Keeper of the "Log and Purserf' The first event on the beginning of our cruise was a wiener roast, which took place at Sinclair's. Two auto loads lost their way, which added to the ex- citement. It was the first semester that the yacht struck a gold mine, selling almond bars at the basketball games. We also had a basketball team which won for us many honors. On this cruise, we landed some of the crew on the Musical Shores to aid in making the Orchestra, Glee Club and Chorus a success. At the beginning of the second semester, some of our officers were trans- ferred to other yachts. so Edward Eck was appointed Captain and Eleanor Dres- sel, First Mate. Smallpox was getting so bad that we were not allowed to have gatherings for a time, but, on the night of March 2nd, we had a party and I think everyone will agree that we had a good time. So the Class of '23 will go "on and on" with its usual life and enthusiasm and come out with many honors. -Edyth McCollister. Standing lleft to riglitl-Raymontl Haushalter, Harry Laliey.

Since a large per cent. of our members had been with us the two pre- ceding years we were in a position last fall to advance from where we had stopped last june. As a result I feel that I can say, without exaggeration, that we have now achieved the highest accomplishments yet attained in the history of the High School Orchestra. Be that as it may, however, we have labored to- gether for three years, I know, with a gradual and welcome influx of new mem- bers, and have found great pleasure in our work. This year it has been our privilege to play for "Fi-Fi", for the musical and physical exhibition, for the High School and Senior plays, besides entertaining the assembly on several occasions and playing at various minor events. Our enrollment number, which is thirteen, might suggest bad luck, but not so for us. It is needless to say that we are proud of our orchestra and wish that organization all possible success in the future. We give herewith the names of the members in the orchestra of l9l9-20.

Sixty-nine ' CLUB GLEE m '12 4 : H 1 History of the Glee Club During the past season the Glee Club under the patient direction of Mrs. McMahon has mastered some of the most difficult selections of chorus music. The Glee Club is but a branch of the chorus work in the high school, being com- posed of those students who are farthest advanced in that line of music. The importance of this work must not be underestimated. Not only to the individual members is it a benefit, but to the school that can supply upon short notice a group of trained singers, which does honor to the institution it represents. The Glee Club gave two numbers at the State Baptist Convention held in jerseyville early in the fall. lt took a major part in a concert of High School musical talent given in the Auditorium during the month of February. Selec- tions are being prepared for the Commencement exercises, which will bring to a close a pleasantand successful season for the j. T H. S. Glee Club.

We have asked them for samples of their work, but owing to epidemics closing their schools, a great number of them were unable to respond. However, some of them did. Below are the things they sent in. "THE MEADOW" , CSent in by Leo Kuebrickj Down in the meadow, Where the grass is rust and brown, There came the shadows Of the sun going down. Then came the darkness And the birds settle down in their nest, And everything is in stillness- The people go to their rest. And the meadow is all silent- Different from the dayg And the big elm bough is bent By the winds at their play. The day is full of fun For the little people, in the meadow. And they like to jump and run- But all is silent in the shadow. -William Funkerson, Jr., Sixth Grade Tolman School. "A DECEMBER DAY" fSent in by Miss Esther Worthy, Douglas.J It is a cold day in Decemberg Everything is covered with snow- Not like the pleasant September, With sunshine and bright leaves aglow. The hillsides are covered with coasters and sleds As down the long hill they go, With sweaters and caps of bright green and red. How they Hash o'er the bright, gleam- ing snow! On the pond there are boys and girls skating. Oh, they are having such fun! And now to go home they are waiting, This December day, it is done. -Raymond L. Cummings. "Dear Father, once you said: 'My son, To manhood you have growng Make others trust you, trust yourself, And learn to stand alone? Now, Father, soon I graduate, And those who long have shown How well they trust me want their pay, And I can stand a loan." -Charles Edwards, An Alumnus.

Such was the case when the Board of Education secured an art exhibit from Massachusetts. The collection of pictures, which was a very large one, consisted of reproductions ot' some of the world's best paintings. also a great number of photographs of famous buildings portraying various types of architecture, and a great many pictures of statues, not excluding the wonders of Egypt. Nor was the social part of this thing overlooked. Miss Palmstrom's room was changed into a charming tea room beautifully decorated with japanese prints and other characteristic japanese articles. A great many people nad the pleasure of drinking tea in this room and about twenty-five dollars' worth of prints were sold. Many people of this city, and of those neighboring, took advantage of the opportunity, which was indeed a rare one. Several people purchased pictures for their homes, and not a few gave pictures to the schoolg for which, allow us to take this opportunity to thank them for their kindness and loyalty to our school. By an unexpected circumstance our period to keep the exhibit was length- ened two weeks. In order that we might make the most of such an opportunity a prize was offered to the boy or girl selling the largest number of picturesg also a prize was offered to the student learning to recognize the largest number of pictures and their artists. The selling prize was won by Milo A. Wells, who sold over fifty dollars' worth of pictures. The other prize was won by Lucian Dressel, who named every picture and its artist correctly. These students are both in the graduating class of l92O. The art exhibit was a success, netting the school one hundred and forty-Eve dollars. The pictures purchased with this money, together with a great number of pennants which have been secured by the sale of second hand books, will surely give our high school a homelike and attractive appearance.

Numbers by the chorus and orchestra, under the direction of Nlrs. IVlcNlahon, were given during the earlier part of the eveningg the latter part being taken up by dancing and physical exercises, directed by Miss Fink and Mr. Wood. ln spite of the fact that the boys were rather out of rhythm on some of their gym- nastics, the entertainment was decidedly successful. , The Market ln order to send our District Championship Basketball Team to the State Tournament, a market was held on Saturday, March 13, 1920. The same plan was followed, as for the year previous, the students donating farm produce, canned and baked goods. A profit of about one hundred dollars was realized. In behalf of the school we wish to thank Mr. Rutlege, proprietor of the Colonial Hotel, for the use of his supply room in which the market was held. We also thank the loyal citizens of jerseyville and vicinity who are always willing to support any kind of school activity. Why the "J" Typists Need One!

To the loyal support of the association is partly due the renown and glory which the team has won for the High School this year. It is this organization which handles the financial side of the school's athletics. It takes money and support to make the team "go," It is the business of the Athletic Association to supply these necessities. The financial responsibility this year was the greatest in the history of the school. The sixteen home game basketball schedule, including Canton, Peoria, Cheyenne Indians and other teams from a distance, involved an expense of more than S900.00. The esti- mate loss on the three tournaments attended is S100.00. The advertising and other cur- rent expenses run the total expenditures to approximately 51,100.00 The receipts from season tickets, single admission, and annual market are about S800.00, leaving a deficit of 55300.00 to be met by the school before the end of the year. Plans are already made by which the school will raise, through the efforts of all the classes, funds to clear the athletic account, cover expenses of other school activities and close the year, perhaps, with a small balance on the credit side. -Milo Wells.

Giers lfliglity-SM 1 n The Basketball Team Far beyond any power is it to express adequately in words the gratitude which we, the students of the Jersey Township High School, owe and feel for the team of 1919-20. They have accomplished great achievements, and deprived themselves not a little in order that they might add another wreath to the laurels won by preceding teams. For our coach, Mr. Wood, we hold respect and we credit him with honor, for on his shoulders has been carried the burden of making a successful team from an inexperi- enced group of athletic devotees. Too much praise and glory we cannot give to the captain, Louis Giers. Louis is a man whom no one has ever seen excited, and as a result he has made a wonderful cap- tain. "Bud" was standing guard and a real one, too. When "Bud" can't stop a play you can wager upon its being a good one. Louis made the all-star team at Jacksonville. I hardly know how to commence on "Fitz." There's too much to tell. lf you want to hear some stories about good sportmanship in basketball just ask any one that ever saw "Fitzie" play. You'll hear about some speed, too. Emmett played all year as running guard rendering to the school his best service. We all feared that when the Bells were gone we should be hard pressed for a centerg and so we were for a short time, until "Skinny" came forward with the speed, accuracy, and temperament of our old friend, "Lanky," and saved the day. Russell made the all-star center at Macomb and the second all-star center at Jacksonville. Clark Post played the part of an excellent forward this season, rather surprised us, too, but this skill was the result of several years' practice previous to the year 1919-20. "Pucher" has been waiting for this opportunity since before he left the grades and he quickly prepared himself to make use of it. Such is surely commendable. Clark made the second all-star forward at Jacksonville. Russell Seago is another man who rendered the J. T. H. S. the highest type service as a result of former training. "Fussy" sure put pep into the games. As a proof of his ability in shooting, let me state, that he was the highest scoring man in the Macomb tournament. Russell made the Hrst all-star forward at Jacksonville and the second all- star forward at Macomb. Clifford Bell served the J. T. H. S. basketball team faithfully through eight semes- tf-rs. We were grieved to see "Clip" go, for we knew that his services would be missed. Surely such service is worthy of our praise. We had three very "Classy subs" this year. These men were not, as is often the case, inferior to the regulars. No difference could be noted when a change was made during the game. Charles Adams fought many games as forward, winning credit both for himself and the school. Robe1't Bowen was the nymph that put the humor in basketball. "Bob" was never taken out on account of poor playing, but sometimes we feared a panic in the crowd as a result of his wit. Alonzo Boker tendered his school no little service and played not a few games. While a large per cent. of this year's team will graduate this year we feel no fear for the future. We have proved that a successful team can be made from those inexperienced in the art. Psalm 20: "VVe will rejoice"-XVhen VVe Beat Peoria.

We played the fastest teams in the State and won and were defeated. Each defeat taught us lessons, each success gave us encouragement and urged us on. We played thirty- six games, the longest and hardest schedule ever played by a J. T. H. S. basketball teamg Canton, the team which won second place in the State tournament defeated us by four points in the cleanest and fastest game of the season. We were defeated by the Cheyenne Indians by a margin of four points, but in turn downed them by the same score. We lost a game to the Alton "High" in the first semester but defeated the Alton "Y," an even stronger team in February. Our worst defeat was from Peoria Central High School, who out-scored us twelve points. We were leading up to about two minutes before the first half ended, when Peoria took a spurt and rolled in seven baskets. The second half was a hard fight, but we held them to a six to six score. This defeat stirred the fighting spirit of the team and from that time on our regu- lar five was invincible. Our defeat at the Macomb tournament was due to an injury received by Irvin which rendered him unfit to play in the semi-final game. We were also forced to make a substitution in the State tournament and lost in the Hnal two minutes by five points. Our District tournament at Jacksonville was won by a big margin, and we are well pleased. When it comes to basketball, Jerseyville is always among the best. The Macomb Tournament This year it was our privilege and pleasure to attend the Macomb invitation tour- nament, held at Macomb in the northern part of Illinois. Our first game there was played with Industry High School on February 19. This game resulted in a great victory for the J. T. H. S., the score being 56 to 14. Our second game was with Bushnell on February 20. The results of this game were even mo1'e encouraging than those of the preceding game. The score of this game was 56 to 6. Up to this time Jerseyville had attracted little notice. Now the "fans" began to dope us out for the semi-finals and maybe the finals. February 21 we met Elmwood. This team was doped for first place. We defeated Elmwood, 37 to 10. It was in this game that Russell Erwin received so serious an injury that he was unable to play the next game, or to accompany the team on a five place trip the next week. The Elmwood game put us in the semi-finals. We next played the Normal Academy. With Erwin out as a result of his injury in the preceding game and Post out on fouls, it was our sad fate to lose. The Academy defeated us, 23 to 14. Although we did not get into the finals, Seago was the highest field scoring man at the tournament. Erwin made the all-tournament center and Seago made the second all-tournament forward. -Literary Editor. Psalm 31: "I am forg'otten."-'l'liat Season Ticket. A Ilan: - i-- Ninety all 1 4 P The District Tournament at Iachsonville The tournament at Jacksonville was held Thursday, Friday and Saturday. March 4. 5 and G. The teams competing were twenty-one in number, namely: Auburn, Barry, Bluffs, Brighton, Carlinville, Carrollton, Divernon. Franklin, Gillespie. Girard, Griggs- ville, Jacksonville, Jerseyville, New Berlin, Pearl, Pittsfield, Versailles, Virginia, Wav- erly, White Hall and Winchester. At 9 o'clock Friday morning Jerseyville played her first game with Waverly. The first half of this game ended, 12-7, in favor of Waverly, but in the last period Jersey- ville decided to play a little, so finished the game with twenty-three points to Wav- eriy's 18. Erwin played in the last quarter. The next game came at 3:30 P. M., with Carlinville. This proved an easy team, so the "subs" were allowed to lav. The score was 30-8, in favor of Jerseyville. P . Jerseyville met Virginia Saturday morning. Virginia played a scrappy game 2-nd made things interesting for the "subs," scoring sixteen points, while Jerseyville made twenty. Saturday afternoon came the long looked for game with Pittsfield. Pittsfield was supposed to have a championship team, and expected to win the tournament. They had not lost a game all season and were in high spirits, having eliminated Carrollton in their first game, 80 to 8. The strength of Jerseyville was greatly underestimated by all the teams of the tournament, so Pittsfield looked for a "walk away." During the first five minutes of play, however, Pittsfield woke up to the fact that she was playing a team entirely out of her class, being unable to score except on three fouls during the fi1'st half. Jerseyville "played horse" the second period, saving herself for the final game. The result of the game was 37-14 in favor of Jerseyville. The final game was played Saturday night at 9 P. M. There was no question in the minds of the rooters as to what the result would be. The only question, as stated by a Jacksonville paper, was, "How many points will Jerseyville make 'V' Bluffs played a good, clean game, and must be given credit for her good sportsmanship. The score re- sulted in a 42-16 victory for Jerseyville. Thus the boys "brought home the bacon," as they had promised, this being the third consecutive year that Jerseyville had won the Jacksonville tournament. Psalm 17: "Like as a limi,"-"Bild" Giers Ninety-one The State Tournament As the "J" goes to press, the High School is completing one of the most successful basketball seasons in its history. The boys have just returned from the Annual Illinois State High School basketball tournament, held at the University of Illinois, March 18-20. Though the team was beaten in its first game, yet it demonstrated, to the sat- isfaction of every one, that it was in no way outclassed, and made a showing of which every Jersey Township High School follower may be proud. The Bloomington Daily Bulletin gives the following account of the battle in which the local school was forced to take second place: "The speedy Je1'seyville team threw quite a scare into Bloomington High in the first game of the afternoon session. Only after the hardest kind of a fight were the Purple tossers able to subdue their opponents with a score of 35-393' Seago and Erwin did not play up to form. Early in the game our boys led by a comfortable margin. The game was tied at the half, and from that time on first one team then the other led. Two minutes before the gun was fired a long shot at the basket by Post tied the score, and hopes arose in every Jerseyville rooter for a victory. However, two or three baskets which quickly followed by the Bloomington team threw the boys into confusion and before they could get settled the final shot was fired. As one fan remarked, "It was a bloody battle," but the boys quit with their heads up. The State tou1'nament, as a whole, was perhaps one of the most unusual of any ever held. Some of the closest followers of the game expressed the opinion that the relative merits of the teams represented would have been just about as accurately determined by lot as by the games played. Practically all the teams, picked on basis of their pre- tournament records and their actions on the floor, were eliminated early in the tourna- ment. The result was that Mt. Ve1'non, Canton, Ma1'ion and Olney appeared in the semi-finals and finals and won in the order named. Canton was expected to win over Mt. Vernon, and Olney over Marion, by large scores by those who had seen them play throughout the tournament, but, t1'ue to the tournament fate, the "dope" was again upset and both teams in the final games lost by decisive scores. The writer of this report, hOW6V81', wishes to guard against detracting from the honor rightly due Mt. Vernon. They fought their way heroically from the first game to final victory and deserved, if for no other reason than pluck, the championship awards. Throughout the tournament, they played the same five men. At no time was any one removed even for fouls. They exhibited in every department of the game true sportsmanship. For the second time in the history of the Illinois State basketball tournament, the honors go to a team south of Springfield. Two years ago, the record of up-State vic- tories was broken, when Centralia won the championship. For the Jersey Township High School this result should have significance. It means that the northern teams, so long recognized as masters in basketball, have been forced to relinquish the title and now the southern schools, with equally good facilities, can compete on equal terms and with equal opportunities for success. So let the Jersey Township High School be proud of its present record, but fix its eyes on the State championship goal and enter following tournaments with the skill and spirit that wins.

In the fall of 1916, when this building, the Jersey Township High School, was being constructed, one of my friends and I started out for a ride on our bicycles one evening. My little brother, Jimmie, wanted me to take him for a ride on the handle-bars. So having yielded to his request, we started down North State Street. After riding as far as the school house, two blocks away, we had slackened our speed a little in order to look at the school house, when my brother caught his foot in the spokes of the front wheel. This caused his foot to become wedged between the wheel and the axle so that the wheel would not turn. For this reason the bicycle pitched forward, dislodging my brother, throwing him to the pavement on his forehead. I, too, fell but beyond him a short distance, striking the pavement with great force. My friend, who was riding a little dis- tance ahead, heard my brother scream, and looked around just in time to see us hit the pavement. He dismounted from his wheel and ran back, picked up my brother and carried him to a bench in a neighbor's yard, where he soon received the attention of a physician living nearby. My elder brother and another of my friends, who were standing out in the street in front of our house, saw us fall, and after notifying my father, ran down to us. I had gotten up by this time and started after my friend who was carrying my brother. I was sure Jimmie was hurt seriously. Indeed, my whole thought was for him. After the doctor had attended to Jimmie, somebody looked at me and in- formed me, to my utter surprise, that my tooth was out. I could at first scarcely believe it, but my tongue and later a mirror convinced me that my left front tooth was really missing. Needless to say, I did not take my brother for any more rides on a bicycle. And that is how I came to claim my first false tooth. Thus does a boy gain in wisdom what he loses in teeth. fTo be continuedj PART II. It was in the school year, 1918-19, that the whole J. T. H. S., as well as the whole community, was all proud of the basketball team of that year, as it was one of the best teams we had ever had. To develop a team like that, it was nec- essary to have a second five to work against them, and I happened to be on that second team, or was rather in basketball phraseology, a "sub." All my tooth trouble had long vanished as I had become thoroughly accus- tomed to my false tooth. I felt and looked as well as ever. One afternoon, after school, everyone on the regular squad came out for practice. We, of the second team, feeling that we could show the first team up that night, went into the game to beat them. It proved to be a very close game, too, as first one side would make a basket and then the other side, always keep- ing the score tied or only one or two points ahead for the first team and then for the second team. The first team began playing a little harder and scored two baskets, then the second team made a basket which left the lirst team only two points ahead. Psalm 851: "Tlmu hast a mighty HIlll."-BIZIITIIS Gibbous. ' . Ninety-six Wisdom and Teeth--eContinued I was playing forward on the second team. As I received the ball and threw a basket, thus tying the score again, I felt someone strike me. I was thrown against the piano, which, through carelessness, had been left standing in the gymnasium. As soon as I could pick myself up from off the floor, I ran to the dressing room, staying there until the bump that I had received on my forehead had gone down somewhat. Then I found that I had had a tooth knocked out, but it was fortunately my false tooth, and therefore did not hurt as it would have, if it had been one of my real teeth. Thus it happened in the fall of 1918 that I had my second tooth knocked out. Fewer teeth-more wisdom. Moral: Never play basketball without first removing the piano or other hard obstacle from off the side lines. CTO be concludedl PART III. Another year slipped by, and we began practicing basketball for the year 1919-1920. This time I was forward on the first team of the J. T. H. S. It was after the middle of the season when I went down to the High School after supper one night to play basketball with the juniors. During the game I had a held ball with one of the boys on the opposite side. In jumping for the ball his elbow hit me in the mouth and broke off my unlucky tooth. As it fell to the floor I saw that only part of it had broken off, the other part of it remaining in its posi- tion. The next day I had only half a tooth there. In the afternoon as I stooped down to the fountain to get a drink, I swallowed something. I tried to regain it by coughing. but to no purpose. Down, down, down my diaphragm it sank. What was it? I glanced at the fountain. 'Surely nothing from off the fountain. As I wondered what it could be, my tongue again came to my aid, convincing me it was the rest of that unlucky tooth that had gone down my throat. Now I have another tooth in there and I guess it will stay, for the old saying is, "The third time's the charm." That made the third time. A third tooth gone -more wisdom. Moral: Never get struck in the mouth. fNot to be concluded-I hopej I R. S.

It was about 8:30 o'clock, the sky was dark, the wind was terrific, thunder came in loud crashes, and the rain was pouring down. I went upstairs to lower the windows so that the rain would not blow in on the beds, I entered one of the rooms and found that the electric light would not turn on. There wasn't a flashlight or even a match to be found anywhere. Finally I made my way across the room in the darkness, closed the window and started out of the room, but before reaching the door I saw a figure directly in front of me. At first I was frightened, but then think- ing that it was one of my sisters trying to play a joke on me, I as calmly as I could said, 'fWhat in the world are you doing up here? You may think that you're going to scare me, but I know who you are." As the1'e was no answer to my question, I started to leave the room, but as I moved, this specter who I thought was my sister moved too, without making a sound. This was too much for me. I became utterly terrified, my heart pounding so that it drowned out the noise of the storm. "My hair stood on end and my voice stuck in my throat," as Virgil puts it. I saw no way of escaping this specter in front of me. I stood very still for a moment listening as best I could for some answer from this appa1'ition. Knowing that it would be impossible for me to stand this suspense very much longer, I shrieked, "Help! helpl help!" My sister, hearing the cries for help, rushed upstairs with a lamp to see what was the matter with me. She entered the room where I was, and found me standing in front of the dresser confronting my own refiection in the mirror. -Margaret Shortal. MY NARROWEST ESCAPE One Sunday afternoon last summer I had gone out in the country immediately after dinner to get a friend, taking with me my sister and two of our friends. On our return t1'ip our party of five was nearing the Chicago and Alton railroad crossing at the rate of about forty miles an hour, when one of the girls screamed, "There comes a train!" I looked up, and sure enough, there it was, not much farther from the crossing than we were, coming at about the same rate we were! In a Hash I realized I could not stop the car because my brakes were worn outg I couldn't push the throttle ve1'y fast because that would kill the engine, as it was in very poor condition. Accordingly, I measured the distance with my eye, and gave the motor all the throttle I dared to. I don't know what it was, but something told me I was going to make it. Well, we did make it, escaping the engine by about two ya1'ds. When I went over the crossing I crumpled up like a leaf, I was shaking so hard that I could sca1'ceIy hold the stee1'ing wheel, my face and hands were covered with cold perspiration. My companions, too, were quite as unnerved as I was. -A. R. Yocom. Psalm 106: "The tire was kindled."-.Tohn. Ninety-i-ight Horrors-Continued A FALL IN COLORADO The day was bright and sunny, typical of Colorado. I had been riding for hours on a saddle horse of my uncle's, who was irrigating that day and whom I rode down to watch. Being in need of a pitchfork, he sent me to the barn for one. With no thought of disaster in my mind, I rode into the entry way of the barn, not noticing at all the doors which were open barely wide enough for the horse to pass through. I found the pitchfork after a long search and placed it across the saddle in front of me. In this position it extended on each side ol the horse about a foot. Rigged out in this manner I started for the Held. I did not go far. The horses head and shoulders went through the barn doors, and then the pitchfork caught. What seemed to me like a great weight pressed me harder and harder, and farther and farther over the back of the saddle. I felt the horse slipping from under me, and after what seemed ages to me I landed on the hard cement floor. I must have struck my head for I was dazed and almost senseless. When I became conscious once more I found I had fallen outside the barn, but how this was possible I could not understand. However, there I was, the horse on one side lazily blinking at me and doubtless wondering what had hap- pened, and the cause of all my troubles at my feet, its tines gleaming wickedly in the sun. When I had got my bearings again, I rose and mounted the horse, being careful to see that the pitchfork was placed in a position to do me no more harm. I rode to the field, left the pitchfork, came back to the barn and unsaddled the horse. I rode no more that day. One fall a day was sufficient. --Virginia S. Robinson. THAT FATED SUNDAY "I fear thee and thy glittering eye, And skinny hand so white."eAncient Mariner. The evening was hot and sultry, just such an evening as to make one drowsy and sleepy. While I was sitting in church listening to a very uninteresting ser- mon, I must have fallen asleep. N When I awoke the church was dark and still, not a sound could be heard ex- cept the rain dashing against the roof. My first thought was of surprise at the Psalm 111: "His work is lion:vrable."-l-'rod Howden. Ninety-nine Horrorsee Continued predicament I was ing for I knew, without going to look, that the doors and wing dows were locked, and that I had no chance of escape until morning. A clock, muffled and distant, pealed the hour of midnight. Immediately afterwards, a sound broke the stillness of the church, a sound barely perceptible at first, yet coming apparently from the belfry, growing loud er and resembling, finally, the noise a chain would make being dragged down wooden steps. Nearer and nearer came this sound of the horrible clanking. In a moment, I realized what it was, for I remembered hearing repeatedly that morn- ing the three quick shrieks of the Insane Asylum whistle warning the towns- people of the escape of an inmate. So the demented creature had been hiding all day in the belfry of the church during the search that was made for him. Oh! how horrible, the escaped lunatic and I penned up in the church together. A heartrending fear gripped me as I sat listening. A man was already fumbling at the door behind the pulpit. My eyes seemed paralyzed, I could not draw them from that door, which was full in the glare of the electric light at the corner. Slowly the door opened and the man entered, hunch-backed, with long arms dangling in front of him, a white, hard face, in which a pair of wicked, bloodshot eyes glared around the room with crazed intensity. In figure and in manner he resembled more a beast than a human. The part of the room in which I sat was so dark that I supposed the man did not see meg but if he did not see me. some animal instinct must have told him that I was there, for he walked directly toward me, dragging the chain along slowly. I could not see him now, but I felt him coming nearer. Closer and yet closer, stealthier and yet stealthier he approached. Finally he slid into the same seat where I had now risen, and with seemingly fiendish joy he leaped at my throat, catching it in a terrible grip, forcing my head backward. I struggled fiercely, tried to scream, but could not utter a sound. When the pain seemed almost unbearable, I heard my sister say angrily, 'AI wish you would quit trying to kick me out of bed." R. Y.

Our house, unfortunately, is not heated by a furnace, but is heated by several stoves. The bathroom, which is on the second floor, is heated by a small oil stove. It takes from one to two hours to secure the necessary heat for bathing. On this occasion, the stove was lighted about 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon. At about 5 o'clock my sister and I bathed, and my sister being last turned the wick of the stove down rather low and left it. Thus the stove was left burning until about 9 o'clock, when my father bathed. When he came downstai1's, he remarked that the bathroom was very warm, but know- ing that some one else would go up immediately, he turned the wick down a trifle lower, closed the door, and went to bed. My other sister, who was to go next, was unaccountably delayed. thus saving her- self from being smothered, as we later learned. As we were sitting around the table, reading we heard a door shaking. It was then about 10 o'clock, too late for any one to come, unless it was a burglar. We waited a minute. then the shaking was repeated louder than before. My mother went to the back door, but found it was the wrong one. She then tried the adjoining door, which led into the hall, next the bathroom door. As soon as this was opened, the noise was louder and more insistent. She ran to the foot of the stairs, from where she saw flames and smoke shooting out from under the bathroom door upstairs. She rushed back to the kitchen, caught up a bucket of water, ran up the stairs, calling, 'tThe bath- room's on fire!" I hastily awoke papa, who had just dozed, and then we girls began a mad rush for water. Water in every bucket and pan was carried upstairs. In the meantime, mamma had rushed upstairs and opened the bathroom door. Such a blast of fire and smoke came out of the room that it nearly smothered her. She ran to the hall window and threw it open. Luckily the window was unlocked or she would have fallen, overcome by the smoke. The smoke is deadly, it is said, making the throat, the eyes and the nose smart intensely. To add to this, there was no light, as the gas in the room had already caused one lamp to explode, and would have done the same with another. By this time, my father had reached the bathroom, and saw the stove a mass of flames. He thought mamma was in there, and tried to get enough fresh air to enable him to go in after he1'. Mamma, however, was at the back of the hall, shouting "Don't go in there! I'm here." We all thought she was in the bathroom. Finally, she ran to papa and convinced him that she was safe. I rushed into the bedroom for a quilt, and, throwing it over the stove, papa threw the stove out on the roof, where it collapsed. It was worse than useless to try to extinguish the burning coal-oil with water. as we knew water would only spread the conflagration. We then poured water on the burning floor, and by midnight had extinguished the fire. Only the blackened, ruined bathroom remained. Every pane of glass in both windows and a large mirror were broken into fragments. The walls were black with smoke and grease. The floor, tl1e windows and the door were charred. The house, fortunately, was insured, so that repairs are now being rapidly made. Although miraculously none of us were burned, nevertheless I never wish to be involved in a more frightening experience. -Irene Quinn. Proverbs 31: "Let him drink."-The "Supli."

These students in turn write to their American correspondents in English. The twenty- five best French students of j. T. H. S. are now carrying on a correspondence. We print below some of the English letters received from France. We wonder if our French sounds as peculiar to them. Coutances, on the 5th of january, 1920. My dear friend, I have received your letter with pleasure, and today I shall say to you how much I am glad to write to you. I know you now because last month Miss Mathilde Desbouletz sent me your picture, but I shall be very glad to have another for me. You told Miss Mathilde in your last letter that you learn Latin language and English one. So am I. It is very interesting to do it. Is it not? Our boarding school is at Coutances, a little town near the Channel. It is not a beautiful one because the streets are narrow and steep, but its cathedral is lovely, and I like it very much indeed. In the evening I am glad when I can go to it, chiefly in summer when it is six o'clock. Then the sun lightens the glass windows and colors the granite walls with its various tints. The public garden is very pretty too. Every Thursday when it is warm I go to it with a friend and we stay there all the afternoon. We read or we embroider. I shall tell you other things about our country in my next letter. Tell me something about America in yours, please. I am yours, CHARLOTTE REFUVILLE. Institution Guerard Coutances tManchel France. P. S. Correct my mistakes, please, and I shall do so to yours when you will write in French language. Vannes, May Sl, l9l9. I0 P. M. Dear Miss jacobs, I received your letter of May lst a week ago, but I have not had time to answer to you before today. You ask me how many years will it be before I shall be an officer in the navy? I don't know, may be five years, may be four, but I shall go to the navy- school in two years. This school is on board of an old man-of-war, "Jeanne d' Prove-rlms 19: "Us-else. mv ' n."-Mr. XVoud to Skinny Irwin Oni- Hundred Fivu Language e Continued Arc." I shall stay there two years, and after I shall be an officerg then during a year, I shall make a voyage round the world in a man-of-war, and I shall come back to Brest. No, it is not in that way, that I expect to reach America. When my studies will be finished, I shall go a half-year in England and a half-year in America in order to speak quite fluently English and American, for the two languages are not the same for their pronunciation. You have read and have been told that my countrymen look down upon the class of people who keep shops. That is so. Why? I don't know. Since the be- ginning of the war, chiefly, my countrymen look down upon shop-keepers. Is it because they sold too dear their goods? is it by jealousy of the money which win the shop-keepers? I don't know, but that is so. There are no more many soldiers of your country at Vannes, four hundred I believe, but there are a thousand and five hundred nurses. They must return to America before a month. I believe that I do not told you which is my religion. I am a Catholic and I go in a Catholic college where some teachers of mine are priests. In France and chiefly in Brittany almost all people are Catholic. Today Andre has gone to the isle of Conleau take a bath with some friends of his. I could not go with him, though I shall have wanted to take a bath be- cause I have some tasks to make and some lessons to learn. On the cards of the isle of Conleau, which I shall soon send to you, you will see the spot where An- dre and I take baths during every summer. During my summer holidays I shall go to a wedding to the country, and if for this time I have a camera and films, I shall take some pictures of the wedding which I shall send to you and I told you this Breton wedding. I think that will interest you. With best regards to your father, mother, brother and all, I am, Yours very sincerely, RENE KERGOSIER. Vannes, june 21st, l9l9 Dear Mildred, The same day that I sent to the post-office the last letter that I have written to you, I received another letter from you. I sent my letter in the morning by going to the college and when I came back home at noon, I found there another letter from you. Between a cathedral and just a church in France, there is almost no differ- ence. There is one cathedral in every capital of department. We call this church: I'i'uvf-rbs 144: "The evil bow bm-fore the good."-Tlio Juniors to the S1111 I I i 1 ur u 1 l One Hundreil Six - 1 Language- Continued cathedral because it is in this church, that the bishop, who lives in the capital, presides over the ceremoniesf In Brittany there are live cathedrals. one in every town where lives a bishop: at Quimper, Vannes, Saint Brieuc, Nantes, et Beunes. In our system of education we distinguish three grades: Primary, Secondary and Higher education. I began my education at six in a school of primary education where I learnt arithmetic, geometry, story and geography and French composition. Then at thirteen I went in a school of secondary education in which my studies finish this year. Next year I shall go to another school, doubtless at Brest. In the col- lege where I am, now, last year my course consisted of geometry fadvancedl, higher algebra, English and German, Physics and Chemistry, History and Geog- raphy, English composition, French composition, French themes, and French literature. This year my course is like the one of last year. Meanwhile in English we see King Lear, The Taming ofthe Shrew, Romeo and Juliet, The Prince of Tyre, Hamlet, Macbeth and the Merchant of Venice from Shakespeare, The Prisoner of Chillon from Byrong David Copperfield from Dickensg Enoch Arden from Tenny- son, which I know by heart. In mathematics we see Higher algebra, Trigonom- etry, geometry tadvancedj. In Physics we see optics, electricity, while last week we see gravity and heat. In History we see History of France and of Europe from 1715 to 1815, and War of Independence of United States, while last year we see History from 1610 to 1715. Every week we have three hours of History and Geography, three hours of German, four hours of English, five hours of mathematics, four hours of Physics and Chemistry, four hours of French literature. Every night I have a task to do at home. On Monday evening mathematics task-On Tuesday com- position-On Thursday evening Physics task-On Friday evening Mathematics task, and on Saturday evening English composition. On Sundays I am at the college from eight to eleven, we have great mass and one hour class during which our religion is explained to us by a priest. Cn Mon- days I am at the college in the morning from half past seven to noon, in the afternoon from half past one to six. On Tuesdays I am there in the morning from half past seven to half past ten, in the afternoon from half past one to half past four. On Wednesdays and Saturdays it is like on Tuesdays. On Thursdays I am at the college from half past seven to half past ten, and in the afternoon we have holiday. On Fridays I am at the college from half past seven to noon, in the afternoon from half past one to half past four. Yes, I am preparing to enter navy-officers-school, which is at Brest on board the "Jeanne d' Arc", a man-of-war. De Melle Jacobs ist very correct: a French girl who would send a letter, would also write De Melle such a one. I know that "fall" meant autumn, for I have read this word many times in English or American novels. With best regards to yourself, Mildred, and to your parents and sister, I am, Yours very sincerely, RENE KERGOSIER. I'1'ovv1'bs T: "Su she 1-ziugrlit him and kissed him."-..'.. Uno Hundred Seven Language- Continued Vannes, Dec. 14, 1919. Dear friend. Your letter of November 28th and your parcel of pictures reached me four days ago. I thank you for them. As usually they are very interesting. You can- not fancy how much I like to look at them. Sometimes when I have time enough, I look at them again, for I find them very fine. The pictures of Culver Military Academy are the finest ones: we have not in France such a booklet with colored pictures. You would like to know how much duty I had to pay on the kodak. I paid twenty-four francs on it ,that is to say about four dollars. Yes, my friend, I received the Eastman Company's letter they wrote to you telling at what addresses in France films and equipment for the kodak might be purchased. I believe to have said it to you in a letter, but it is very possible that I have forgotten to tell you. I forget so fast. Sometimes when I write a letter I want to say something, and I forget to tell it. I only remember, when my let- ter is sent, but for the next time that I write again, I have quite forgotten it, and I never told it. In our garden during winter we see chiefly little robins and blackbirds. My younger brother when he has time, he soon goes in the garden with his rifle and shoots on the blackbirds and he often kills of them. Yes, my little sister has good health, and my little brother, too. He is al- most never ill for he always plays. During winter he plays at football with his friends every Thursday and Sunday afternoon when it is fine weather. Since more a month every day it is the same weather. It is raining almost always, but weather is mild. It is blowing hard, and in the night when I am in my bed and can't sleep I think of the sailors and fishermen, and I wonder how many boats will founder during this dreadful night, for always during these storms there are some boats of fishermen with three or four men on board which founder. Their wreck is unknown or is only known in their village and its en- virons. The sea on the Breton coast is called by the fisher-men-wives, the "Scoundrel." I find that it deserves well this name. ' With best regards to your Mother Sc Father, I am. Yours very sincerely, RENE KERGOSIER. "An annual is a great invention, The school gets all the fame.

Playing at football, I have had at first warm: then having had warm, I am stayed motionless talking with some friends: then I have had cold: some days I was ill. Now I am better, and I shall write to you in a few time. RENE KERGOSIER. A dark unfathomed tide Of interminable pride!- A mystery, and a dream, Should my early life seemg I say that dream was fraught With a wild and waking thought Of beings that have been, Which my spirit hath not seen, Had I let them pass me by, With a dreaming eye! Let none of earth wherit That vision on my spiritg Those thoughts I would control, As a spell upon his soulg For that bright hope at last And that light time has past And my worldly rest hath gone With a sign as it passed on I care not though it perish With a thought I then did cherish. -Edgar Allen Poe.

We have chosen this method of carrying out the plan, and it is our wish that a similar section of the Annual might be devoted to this feature each year. We truly hope that this may prove a help in increasing school spirit and encouraging students to strive for better things. Does this not show that the jersey Township High School instills something into her students besides a love for athletics? The "j" is a production of the jersey Township High School. Are we ashamed of it? No. The reader may judge as to its merit.

Our soldiers in France called for candy, craved it and ate it. Candy is a national food. It is still the open sesame to a maid's heart. It is still a match- less herald in the court of Love. It is still the only way through the portals of wife's forgiveness. It is the same old magic charm that has always changed a child's woe to gladness. Candy is the lover's bower, can- dy on the maid's dressing table and candy in the trenches of war. Can- dy, it is beautiful as a good dream come true. CHRISTON 8: ARGICR Jerseyville, Ill.
