Chapter l Part One The School Beckons Well-, if it isn't little old Eric. Say, are you going to Lane, too?" "Yes, I decided to go to a technical school. Lane happens to be the nearest one to my home. But what brings you here, Harris?' 'tTo tell you the truth, pal, my father wanted me to continue going to school. If I had my way I wouldn't come near this place. Father wants me to get an education. Of course, I might be able to talk him out of it but my mother insists on putting me through high school. She is always saying that knowledge is power. To me, an education is a waste of time and money. Why,-I bet I could get a job right now if I wanted to." "I see, but I suppose the only thing you fear is the well-known wood shed. Otherwise you'd quit right now." "That just about covers it, Eric." As the Division Street car neared the high school, William Harris and Eric Johnson were re- newing their friendship. They had been school- mates once before at grammar school. However, johnson had moved and the friendship was tempor- arily dissolved- Now Eric was again speaking. f'Tell me, Bill, where are we to report when we do get there?" "lim not sure, but I think someone told me to go to the auditorium-wherever that is." Harris was interrupted in his speech by a loud- Sedgwick Street-Lane Tech! A rough scramble for the exits of the street car ensued. Both chums followed the seventy-five or more students and would-be Laneites out of the car. As they looked a- bout them they could see hundreds of boys waiting to get into the educational institution. Boys were everywhere, on window ledges, stairs and fences. Groups of upper classmen conversed with their own crowds. Every now and then someone would holler out, "Another load of freshmen! Boy, do they look green! Look at that little fellow. He must have just graduated from kindergarten! Hello, Mike, Hyah, boy!" - A ringing of a bell broke up a part of the huge crowd assembled around the school. It was class time for last year's students. A wait of another hour or so before the new boys followed the rest of their kind into the school's auditorium. Though a seat was not available, there was plenty of standing room. Harris led johnson to a corner which was, luckily unoccupied. "There must be a couple of thousand kids in here, eh, Eric?l' "No, I don't think so. Well, maybe about a thou- sand. That's about all they could get in here I guess. Wait .... that teacher on the stage is trying to say something- Listen." 'fQuiet, fellows. Please stop talking for a while. Your cooperation is needed if we are to get through with all of this business today. The sooner we get this over with the better. Now listen carefully . . . and when the name of your group is called please leave the hall. All right, the first group on the list is the two-year electric course. Two year electric students!" A heavy rustling of bodies and feet echoed through the auditorium. A wait and then. . . "Two year auto shop! Two year automobile course. Come on, fellows, pep it up a little." Again the leaving of a milling mob of first year boys followed his an- nouncement. So it continued with all the courses the school had to offer -until ...-. 'KF our year tech! Four year technical course!" ' The two freshmen left the hall with a number of other fellows. The group was under the supervision of a teacher who led them into a drawing room. Once inside, they registered their names and were told to report the following morning at eight o'clock. After this brief task was done they were dismissed. However, instead of going right home they decided to look over the school and its surroundings. "Pretty big place, isn't it, Bill?" "Yeah, too big if you ask me. How is a guy sup- posed to know his way around this Place?" "That's easy, a fellow told me that there are even numbers on one side and odd on the other side of the office." "Isn't that a great help to me. Why I don't even know where the office is. Well, here we are out in the open again. Are you going to head for home?" "No, let's look around a bit more. I want to see what they are charging for school supplies in these stores." Another half hour was thus spent. "Aw, come on, Eric, let's go home. I'm getting hungry." "Okay, after all, weive got another day tomorrow- Oh, yes, where will I meet you?" "Meet me at the main entrance. On what-you- may-call-it street? Sedgwick? Yes, thatis it. About ten to eight. So long?
