BEAVERSON '26 When your life seem overshadowed, With the problems that you fear, Self confidence is the keynote That will bring success or cheer When your heart is overburdened With the though that we must part To the corners of the world Calm your fears, O heavy heart! Does dark gloom lie in the distance? Is your future fraught with hope? Or shall we find that we are drifting Always, ever down the slope? Friends we'll meet as life grows older But no better pals than these, Braver years mean hearts grown colder Forgetting high school memories. Here our acts know no concealment High school days are life's best days, In the ties of strong affection We may ever mend our ways. Look forward classmates, through the shadows "Hitch your wagon to a star" Joy is coming soon-tomorrow Brightens hope, it shines afar. Silver will linger with us until the morrow Old rose speaks of memories old But the rose of American Beauty Brightens success, which we'll unfold. Not beginning, and not ending Is our school of life today, But to pause, our memories blending With our hopes along the way. For each in his spearate calling, His spearate thought must express, As he follows the gleam as he sees it To the goal that to him means success. Now a future ever pleasant, Beckons from a past that's dead, We must leave this living present, Knowing not what waits ahead. HFINISH The Milionian 9 Wibk Q es 'WJCQW Q grew Q- N Emu, 2334521 .-WWW!

If this book will help you to recall in the future, some of the events of the present year, the Staff Will consider that their efforts have been Well worth While. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 To Our Readers Our work is done, and there remains but a brief message to our read- ers. We do not pretend to present an ideal Year Book. It has been our aim to present a book such as the old graduate will be glad to read over in after years, when he longs to revel in the memories of the 'cgood old days." And now We lay down our pens breathing only one prayer: that the boys and girls who are to follow us may succeed in reaching the goal set by our class, yes, even in surpassing it.

Long we have labored and waited For just such a moment as thisg Long we have struggled for victory, To have gained it what wonderful bliss. Time in its flight touched us lightly, Years passed along as a day, We realized dimly and vaguely Its swiftness in passing away. To us it seems just a short time Since we were just starting to school, And trying with childish endeavor To work and conform to the rule. The road from our infancy upward Has buried as all pathways do, It wasn't all smoothness or roughness But mixed with both all the way through. And tho' there were times for despairing, And times for exceeding great joy, And though there were things to encourage And things seeming bound to arrayg We made our way steadily upward For victory cometh at last, And so toiling upward and onward Into the M. H. S. we passed. There in one class all united With well defined purpose in mind, We studied our various courses Our own special calling to find. And while there are those who have found it And those undecided as yetg Wherever their life-work shall lead them Their school life theylll never forget. And when they are far from the portals Of that school to them once so dear, They will think of the joys it has brought them A wealth of friends and good cheer. They will ponder events that have happened Remember each scene with a smiley Remember each step as they took it Live it over again all the while. But brightest of all the glories Stands out the one day alone, When proudly victorious and happy- A H. S. diploma we own. We leave the old H. S. forever, And out on Life's Highway we go To battle for future achievements Mid financial, rain, wind, and snow. But now it's good bye to the H. S. Who sheltered us these four long years, 'Tis not without sorrow we leave it Altho' we may shed no tears. When health and success shall have crowned us, And time in its swiftness shall fly, Our thoughts shall perchance flutter backwards To the time when we told it good bye. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Class Song Tune "Now Our Day is Overn 1 Now our days are over We are leaving thee Memories we have taken Ever sweet will be. 2 Milton Hi was always Ever since our birth And it ever shall be The dearest spot on earth. 3 Now we want to tell you Of a love that's strong And we want to spread it Through this little song. 4 So dear pals and playmates To thee we say 'tfarewelln And in that fair country May we heed the bell. 5 Then to our dear teachers We have always been Good and kind and loving Never known to sing. 6 Dear old Milton Hi School We are leaving thee And you'll ever find us True as we can be. 7 Classmates, gals and fellows To you we say "good bye".

But upon life's pathway We have just begun. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Valedictory Q if 3 W, pausing awhile to draw in our breath for the work ahead. M, Q The voyage of life is through many deep and unknown channels, ' -- 1-,LJ with many windings and turnings that often make it hard for us to tell just what we have passed by, and what we are yet to meet. It seems a long course to follow, as we row thru the waters, and we are often tempted to let our bark drift whithersover it may, but as we rest upon our oars and look back, how very short a distance we seem to have come, after all, and how close the banks appear to be! It is pleasant to pause here at the bending of the stream, and consider for awhile the pleasant calmness of the wave-ripples thru which we have so easily been rowing, but we cannot linger long, for already the noise of life's larger waters is calling us, and we know that we must row ahead out of the peaceful, shallow current of our young life, where we have been able to drift thru so much of our passage, and pull hard thru the deeper channels against the stream of active life. Dear Parents and Friends, we cannot pass forever out of this quiet channel into the deeper waters awaiting us, without thanking you from the bottom of our hearts for the privilege of beginning this voyage of life on the banks of so clear and calm a stream. For these happy years our bark has glided so smoothly along between the banks that we could reach over and gather the lilies thru which we were guided, and were scarcely conscious of our own efforts in propelling our little craft up the stream. Our teachers have carefully sheltered us from every adverse wind of thought, and have warned us with the most zealous pains of the evil rocks and shoals or tangle of sea-weed so sure to be met with in the broader channels of our onward course. We realize that had you not made this possible for us, our start on the voyage of life might have been saddened by many disasters and retarded by many a barrier that might threaten to wreck our vessel, even at the very beginning of our voyage, and we want you to know how much we appreciate your loving thoughtfulness before we, said on- ward, thru the deeper channels to the sea of larger life awaiting us. To you, dear teachers, we must also express our earnest thanks. Often and often, in the days to come, when we are thrown more and more upon our own guidance and intuition, our minds will travel back to you, and we will see how many times you have helped to steer our frail bark around this or that difficulty, till we shall long, I am sure, to return to the shelter and protection of your piloting. But you have given us both our chart and our compass, and as our boat glides out of the waters where you have been its guide so long, and your eyes, as I know they must, follow us on into the deeper channels ahead, may you ever see our crimson and silver as sgnals of promise and grateful resolution from the class that must never be afraid to show its colors, as we push out to perform our mission in the splendid sea of a bigger opportunity. And thus, classmates, we linger at the bend of the stream-the end of our course -tonite we launch, where shall we anchor? We have paddled together thru the school waves behind us, but each must row forth alone in the deeper channels to come, wherever and into whatever they may lead. Let us, as the billows of life force us apart, keep our colors, with all that they signify to each one of us, ever flying at the mast-headg and so, face every duty of the unknown waters bravely and boldly, the principles of honor ever turning the pilot-wheel, as we sail to the success no graduate of this dear school can ever fail to win. :ffifffq EAR Friends and Classmates: gf Our little boat stands at rest at the bending of the stream, and we are K' 1 bfi. 2 For now our boat glides out between The rocks that guard the shore, Bearing the Class of 1927 To be a class no more, 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 But looking forward with a smile Of courage, strong and high, To meet in that glad Afterwhile, No more to say, "Goodbye!" Mabel Emrick fFinis:I Salutatory BY WETHA JUNKINS EMBERS of the Board of Education, Parents, Relatives, Friends, Teach- ers, and Classmates: The class of 1927 extends to you a most cordial greeting and wel- comes you to this, the laying of the final mile-stone along the journey of -J fffblsw high school. For four long years-yet speedy as we look upon their passing-we have worked for and looked forward to these closing scenes in our career as students. We have longed for this hour, when before an appreciative company of kindred and friends-awe could explain to you our feelings and thoughts and show you the plainly visible importance of the Class of 1927. That time, my friends, has arrived, and we stand before you with the enthusiasm of youth, the pride of the conqueror and the joy of the victor. We have fought the long-tiresome-drawnout t'Battle, with Books," and we are about to receive the badge of efficient service-our diplomas. For four years our little fleet has been sailing calmly in the harbor, riding the ripples of work and pleasure, basking in the sunshine of our teachers' commendations and-occasionally in the clouds of their wrath. Tonight we weigh our anchors and be- gin that voyage into the sea of action where each one of us must steer his craft toward the goal of the future. Before us stretch the years of our further education and the duties of life. The fuure looks bright and full of promise. We are sure that our school life has laid the foundation for future success. The infiuence of our school days has left a lasting im- pressiong it has helped to mold our charactersg and it will be instrumental in shaping our destinies. We greet you, therefore, with hearts of gratitude for your help and kindness of the past four years. Especially do We greet our Parents, who have been the instigators of the building of our school, who have helped us financially, indirectly fostering the school spirit, and for encouraging us when we were "downhearted", the School Board for our eflicient teachers throughout our school daysg and our teachers for their help or instructions and also the encouragement which they have given us. We believe that the true test of civilization is the kind of young men and women the schools turns out. Thus we feel that each one of us is inspired with the longing to go forth and make good for the sake of "dear old Milton High." We hope that you, friends, may share our belief that the class of 1927- May uphold the honor of our school, In coming years, though parted far. And in the climb to distant goals, Her hopes may be our star. fFinisj 1927 IVIILTONIAN 1927 l-lislory of the Class of 1922 BY ELEANORE RICHARD 0 N September of the year 1920 this class entered high school with twenty QQ 64 six members. Our membership had been increased from that of the pre- vious year by the addition of several students from other schools. We S j X .9 found High School life much different from what we expected. We tried to make the best of it but our trials were not lessened by the taunts we received from the higher classmen. We were the Hgreen freshmen" and our upper classmates seemed to think it their duty to constantly remind us of the fact. Then came the dreaded occasion-the freshman initiation. We, however, survived this event and proved to the school that we were, at least. good sports. After we became accustomed to high school our strangeness wore away and we began to take our place with other members of the high school. The freshmen were found in athletics, social events, literary work and all other phases of school life. During this year we were very sorry to lose two of our members-John Blasius and Eugene Norcross. However, when we came back to school after the summer vacation we found two more of our members-Helen Kronberg and Paul Moor had left our ranks. We were no longer Freshmen but were now in a position to laugh at and torment the new fresh- menhforgetting our own dislike of the same. This year was made memorable to all of us by the several class parties held in the homes of different members of the class. During the course of this year, again some of our classmates became dissatisfied with school and we lost three more of our members-Josephine Beckman, Irven Burdock, and Joseph Schon. All ninteen of our members were back to start the Junior year. While we were Juniors we decided we would like to have something as a reminder of the days spent in good, old Milton High. This wish resulted in the purchasing of our class rings, of which we are all very proud and prize very high. Being Juniors it was our duty to prepare a banquet in honor of the Seniors. We gave a play entitled, "Eyes of Love,', as a financial aid toward the banquet. When the date for the banquet arrived every- thing had been very well taken care of and the banquet was a big success. We, how- ever, had lost four more of our members-Vera Lance, Leo Feehan, Anthony Dibling, and Ronald Kieffer. Ronald, as a result of hard study graduated with the Senior class of that year. Finally came our Senior year. We started this year with fifteen members. Herman Mannhardt, as a result of hard work joined our class. We sixteen are now ready to graduate making the largest class that has ever graduated from this school. This year our duties have been heavier than they had been before. Among all of our other duties We decided to have an Annual. Everyone in the class did their part very well and the Annual was a success. In all forms of athletics, social affairs, and school work the Class of '27 has always been represented and we have done our best to help the school. In all of our under- takings in High School we have been successful. This was due partly to the cooper- ation of the whole class but mostly to the help we have received from our teachers, parents and the school board. We know we have caused our teachers some trouble, but what class has gone through school without causing a little trouble? We hope we have not caused more than our share. As we realized the importance of the time spent in school to our future lives we have tried to use all of our time profitably. We tried to make every minute count because in our mind was constantly the thought. .sw 9 - of f ' 5 0 ' . "om, .Cfi ' .-Ii ., fi if V6 V - i if ..-:frm , ik Ju L ' f HI have only just a minute, I must suffer if I lose it, Only sixty seconds in it, Forced upon me, can't refuse it, Didn't seek it, didn't choose it, But it's up to me to use it, But eternity is in it!" Give account if I abuse itg Just a tiny little minute- 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 We are now going out into the world and try to make a success of our education. Our work will, no doubt, be along many different lines but each one hopes to make a success of their hopes to make a success of their particular calling. We are going to set out with the idea that,"There shall be no Alps," or at least none which will be so that we cannot cross if we are so determined and we know our High School education is going to help us attain this goal. In the future we hope to make our school proud of the Class of '27, for while the voyage of High School life is at an end, the voyage of Real Life is just now at its triumphant Commencement. "Thus when school life is completed, Still, life's school is just before us, When all lessons are repeated, And it's rule is always o'er us, And we are no longer seated Then we look for graduation, In the class -room as before, But it comes when life is o'er." fFinisj Class Prophecy It was the witching hour of midnight and the wind was biting shrewdly. I was returning unescorted from an amateur concert, which had lasted about an hour beyond closing time. I stopped on a street corner to make the usual transfer of cars, but there was no car in sight. The east wind was blowing sharply as I started down the street.In the distance, toward which I was going, I could see a large open doorway. As I came to the door I entered, safe from the biting wind. I leaned cozily against the wall, not caring if my car came or not. As I stood there a warm glow of light encircled about me, and turning my head I saw a man standing behind me. "Don't be alarmed," he exclaimedf 'I was only trying my Prophoscope, and I presume you have something weighing very heavily upon your mind." Just then I heard a faint click, the warm glow left my head and the light was with- drawn. "Ah", I said in reply, 'tYou have indeed discerned some of my troubles, for when I tell you that I am the prophetess of my class, whose graduating exercises come now with a few days, can you wonder that my mind was distressed? The day after to- morrow I must read my prophecies to the class, and yet not a word have I written, or even thought of!" "Ah," went on the cultured voice, "then let me help you, do you suppose that you can secure a photo of each member of the class, also the date of each birthday, dur- ing tomorrow forenoon?" "O, I am sure I can," was my prompt answer. "Then let me come to your home tomorrow afternoon." "O," I said, my voice trembling, "surely that will be too much trouble, for, you see I am only a student with restricted income and have no way of paying you for your time and trouble. "O", the voice went on, "do not mention pay, I only want to try out my new invention, the Prophoscope, and if it should succeed in telling the futures of members in your class, then my fortune and fame are assured." "True, true! "I exclaimed, "I shall look for you tomorrow at two o'clock, and now," I added putting my head outside, "there comes the car, the one with the green light, and that is the one I must take." "O", exclaimed my unsought companion, Uhow fine, that is also my car." I felt a little suspicious, but made my way to the car, he at my elbow. The car was crowded, and I left him behind, seeing no more of him that night. 1927 MILTONIAN p 1927 The next morning was spent in collecting the necessary material for the inventor. It was a tedious task involving much telephoning and calls. At two o'clock my inventor showed up, smiling and at once set to work. At first he figured on the date with each photograph, then fastened his Prophoscope to the photo, placed his eyes at the peepholes in the machine and reeled off rapidly the events visible to him. These visions I took down in shorthand and will now give them to you in their transcribed form. First, we have Harry Jones, who has always been fond of doing "stunts" His bones are made of India rubber and his contortions have been the delight of his class- mates. He has begun a years engagement with Sell's circus, and is advertised as the "worlds greatest contortionistf' Cecelia Mahnen who is conceded by everyone as an excellent judge of "applied art", will invent a new cosmetic, warranted to remove all blemishes in fifteen minutes. She will then visit the old world and amass a great fortune for it is known that a wom- an will give all she has for her complexion. Doris Hill, who thinks that nature has ordained that she will be a poet, but she will never write another poem after she turns her back on Milton Hi. Within a few years, she will meet a young man who has fallen heir to a two-hundred acre citrus ranch in California. They will be married and move to their western home. Wetha Junkins, our childhood friend, starring for Paramount pictures, and is hard at work on her next picture which is, "Why Girls Leave Home", in which she has the leading part. Alice Horner, living in Canada with her husband, who is a noted wheat farmer. Alice is busying herself with stock and poultry raising. Virginia Norcross, tripping the light fantastic toe in the Ziegfield Follies. Howard Campbell is her dancing partner. They have all New York at their feet. Josie Clapp, living in Florida with her husband who is a contractor. Josie is quite well known as an authoress, her latest book is 'tYouths Fountain." Frederick Stauffer, who has never married is touring the South in the interests of the Anti-Tobacco League. He is called the "Silver Tongued Orator" of the Western Hemisphere. Clarice Lance, whose highest ambition always was to be a famous teacher, is superintending the schools in Hawaii Hawaiian Islands. Bernice Rickly, a famous singer, now traveling abroad with the Boston Fedettes to display her musical talents, which are expected to send her to the top round of the ladder of fame. Eleanore Richard, our old Chum, is married and living in a rose-covered cottage along the Hudson.Her husband has sold his restaurant and they are raising mush- rooms. Herman Mannhardt, an eminent physician at the head of a prominent hospital in New York City, where he shows great skill in surcical work. Verna Johnson, the jolliest member of our class, after serving four year as the White House Cook, and becoming acquainted with all state secrets, will aspire to be- come president of the United States and will be unanimously elected. Mabel Emrick, our old pal, married to a Senior of '26 and living on the Emrick homestead in Milton Township. She is busily engaged in the various duties of a house- wife. Last, but not least, Cloyce Gross, a cartoonist for the News-Bee for a short time. He then goes to California to look after a two-hundred acre citrus ranch which he has fallen heir too. This being the last picture, the inventor closed the Prophoscope with a click and arose from his chair. 'tThe revelations are all in," he said with a smile, and in a few minutes he bowed and I have not seen him since. As to the truth of these revelations, Time, the great revealer, can alone answer that wonder. lFinisl 1927 y - MILTONIAN 1927 Last Will of the Class of IQZZ Friends and heirs of the Class of 1927, I have called you together on this occasion to listen to the formal reading of the last will and testament of 1927.

Even tho we have been known as the Quarrelling class, yet the prospects are bright- er for a unification. We during this year have enjoyed a party at Evert Emrick's, Raymond Nichols', and a Birthday surprise party at Maxine Challen's in honor of her and the Ferrcl twins.

S. was noted for its clean sportsmanship this year. No hair pulling scenes were reached. Every boy and girl was intensely interested in maintaining or even raising the schools previous standards. Great prospects and hopes are held for the teams of 1927-'28, as but one boy was lost from baseball, not one from boy's basket ball. Two girls graduated who were main players on the girls' team and one withdrew. The remainder of the squad and our subs will constitute a real team, able to meet any rival. Our track work for the spring of 1927 was well worth mentioning, creating or renewing an old interest. Our great handicap which we hope our successors will not have to face them was the lack of a Gym which is a very important phase of school life. Luck and good wishes for clean sports in old M. H.

B. team has been the most successful one that M. H. S. has even had. We started with the resolve to lose not one single game. We played eleven scheduled games, losing but one which was our first game with Grand Rapids. Two games were played with each Grand Rapids and Haskins, one with Tontogany, Weston, Bloomdale, Hoytville, Alumni Team, Bowling Green, and a game with a team from a Toledo factory. In the tournament we won over Bloomdale but lost to Liberty, who came in fresh after we had battled our first game. V Altho' our girls were jeered on account of their size, by such remarks as "corn fed country girls," yet when they hit the Hoor and started their circuits you could see and look out for a pile up of baskets. Miss Coots coached the girls and it was due to her persistency and faithfulness that won success for the team along with the co-operation of each player. Maxine Challen, the highest scorer followed by Ann Uglick, Virginia Norcross, Rickly Sisters, Irma Haas, Lois Hathway, Junkins Sisters and Mabel Emrick constituted the complete squad. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Student Council The objects of the Council were to bring about a more co-operative feeling between classes, teachers, and pupils, to introduce better discipline and in general to manage the activities, purchases and funds of the school, in other words Self-Government. The members consisted of the presidents, vice-presidents, secretaries, and treasurers of each class, the athletic managers and a faculty advisor. The officials were: president, Herman Mannhardtg vice-president, Marguerite Polandg secretary, Bernice Ricklyg treasurer, Myrtle. The organization met regularly each month, occasionally extra sessions. Discipline for the year was good as the children were ruling themselves. A few results of this business union were: better spirit, supplying all necessities for athletics, set standard grade of B to be exempted from Exams, placed requirements of C plus average, with but one D and 85? attendance to be a member of athletics team, forbade chew- ing of gum in school building, forbade and placed penalty on "petting parties" or coupling off, purchased a piano with aid from board, a new Encyclopedia, besides many other purchases and aids. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Social Calendar Sept. 6-School Opened.

C. Cooley, Supt. Faye Baumgardner, Principal CLASS HISTORY In the spring of 1922 there graduated from the eighth grade a timely class of twelve. Of these twelve all returned in the fall to resume their journey on the road to knowledge. To accompany us on our way nine others came from the school of Custar. This made us a total of twenty- one. Thus was the beginning of the class, the remainder of which have at- tained their goal and are now before you. I shall not give you all the de- tails of that first year in high school. We were as a matter of course sub- jected to the continuous razzing of our upper classmen, the most un- sympathetic of whom were the Sophomores. This we learned at our in- itiation into the higher school of learning. We soon realized however that it was just a custom and that class was not super-natural or over- hostile in their relations toward our Freshman class. Their antagonism soon wore off and we became very good friends for the remainder of the term. The members of our class were active in all sorts of school activities. Our representatives were found in all branches of athletics and fared equally as well in literary lines. The fact is, we were often superior to our upperclassmen in Athletics. We won third place in the inter-class track meet, which ranked us above our Sophomore rivals and was worth a great deal to us in winning their respect. Our second year was almost as eventful as our first. Some of our members had become weary of the journey and had dropped by the way- side. But we were here joined by several new members and nineteen were enrolled as Sophomores. We had the pleasure in this term of put- ting the new Freshman class through the mill as we had been the previous year. We took even more interest in Athletics and other scholastic affairs. It needs little memory work to recall the work done by the Sophomores in the inter-class track meet. And was it not a Sophomore who won the Gold medal in Latin? We now journey on to our Junior year with seventeen members. As we lost another, sixteen were left to toil onward to our goal. We found great rivalry in the High-Headed Seniors of that year. But soon showed them, in the classroom and on the athletic field as well that they were not the only pebbles on the beach. They soon became very friendly as they were begininng to look forward to the banquet which we gave them at the close of the term. At the close of our Junior year we could look back with pleasure and feel that the inter-class basket ball championshipg first place in vocal solo workg first place in quartetteg the nucleus of the near championship base- ball teamg besides members of the debating team-all belonged to the class of '26. But need we point out to you all our prowess. You who are here are our friends and have watched with loving eyes our progress from year to year. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Class of '25 --Vernrm F. Caswell '26 CLASS Morro-4 us b 2 is 2 b A CLASS FLOWER-Violets CLASS COLORS-Y7lOlQt and Silver CLASS HISTORY The famous Class of '25 entered the High School of Milton Township Centralized School, September 9, 1921. We became a slave of that tyrant "Last Bell". Most everything was new and strange. We lost the careless freedom of our former day. Another September dawned and soon we were lost in the past. We entered old M. T. H. S. as Sophomores. At this eventful time in our lives we had a chance to initiate the "Freshies". During our Sophomore year, both girls and boys, engaged in athletics. Death entered and robbed us of one of our best members, Lake Pugh, who died March 10th. At the year's close we lost Paul Hathaway, William Martens, Bessie Poland, John Schwab, Rose Neiling, Chalmer Sautters, and Stanley Martin. As Juniors, we were held in higher esteem by our fellow students. The Junior- Senior Banquet was pronounced to be one of the best parties any Junior Class had given. "Cherry Blossom", an operetta, was successfully given. Alice Trumbull withdrew to our regret, and Charles Mahnen was brought in as a new member. In September 1924, we assembled in those halls of learning to reap the fields of knowledge. We believe we have set an enviable standard not only in scholarship but, also, in literary, oratory and athletics. As Freshmen, we had twenty-eight members, but there were only fourteen to start our Senior year. We regreted to see Clarence Haas, Charles Mahnen, and Florence Metzger withdraw in our Senior year. Four of our girls were on the basket ball team, and our two boys held their posi- tions in baseball and basket ball. In literary work our class had great talents. As we left M. T. H. S. our aims were high and we hoped and prayed that we would be able to go out into the world to make a success. "There are gains for all our losses, There are balms for all our pains, But when youth the dream departs, It takes something from our hearts, And it never comes again. We are stronger and are better, Under manhoods sterner reign, Still we feel that something sweet Followed youth with flying feet, And will never come again. Something beautiful is vanished, And we sigh for it in vaing We behold it everywhere On the earth, and in the air, But it never comes again." U 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Alumni Wliereabouls "And tho age and iniirmity overtake me and I come not in sight of the castles of my dreams, teach me still to be thankful for life, and for Time's golden moments that are good and sweetg and may the evening twilight find me gentle still. There are some of the Alumni from whom we cannot hear or converse, who graduated before the class of 1918. But they will always be remembered in our thoughts of dear old M. H. S.

The first year passed with plenty of hard work mixed with the fun which only a group of young people can have together. In our Sophomore year we initiated the Freshmen. The entire High School work- ed together in this event and derived a great amount of fun from it. It was during our second year that several members from our class showed promise of becoming great athletes. Some of the students went out for track, bringing in the ribbons and trophy cups. Others were on the baseball diamond and in the basket ball hall. helping to heap up the scores for Milton High School. This year our class learned the spirit of fair play-to be modest victors and gallant losers. In September 1922 we numbered only eleven. Before the year was over we lost another member, thus leaving only ten to finish the four years. In December we pur- chased our Class rings which were displayed with pride. It was during this third year of school life that we found we had orators and debaters in the class. Several of our number were seen before the foot lights. Therefore, we helped Milton High School, not only in Athletics, Oratorical Contests and Debates, but also on the stage. Our class helped to put Milton High School on the map In return, Milton High gave to us the physical ability, knowledge and freedom of expression which has helped each of us onto the Ladder of Success. As the year drew to a close the Juniors banqueted the Seniors. This banquet was given with pomp and ceremony. We started our Senior year with joy and sorrow, alike in our hearts. We were glad to see each other again, and yet a few short months then we would be separated. Time passed as though it were on wings. The class met privately many times to plan for Commencement. Commencement night came too soon for us. A few short hours and then we separated. Each went his or her own way, taking with them the mem- ories of the days spent in Milton High School. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 ClaSS Ol 1925 CLASS MOTTO-We have crossed the bay, the ocean lies before us CLASS CoLoRs-Blue and Gold CLASS FLOWER-Sweet Peas CLASS HISTORY In September a class of about fifteen entered the Walls of Milton Township High School as Freshmen. Of course we all thought that it would not be long until we would rule the school if not the world. However after some Freshmen initiations we decided that it would be better to look up to our elders, although we did not submit to the complete domina- tion of the upper classmen, as was evidenced by several instances in our work. We met our failures and successes as best we could under the guiding hands of Mr. G. G. Crites as Superintendent and Miss Jessie Hall as Principal. They gave us an insight into the life of a high school student. In the fall of 1920 we entered with a considerably smaller number than we had started with. A few new ones had entered and several old students had decided that the walls of knowledge held no more for them. As Superintendent we had Mr. L. W. Reese who is now state High School Inspec- tor and for principal Mr. C. C. Romaker. During this year Denzel Mann, one of our boys, achieved fame as a track star, while several others were working to the goal of success. We now neared the end of the Sophomore year wondering whether the teachers would be kind enough to give us promotion marks on our report cards. Nevertheless in 1921 we entered as jolly Juniors. We still had Mr. Reese as our guide and leader. In the Spring of 1922 came the Annual Junior and Senior Banquet. This meant plans ahead. We held a Pie Social to secure part of the money needed for the affair. It was a success in so far as we judged ourselves. Thus we ended our year as Juniors at Milton Township High School to bloom again next fall as dignified Seniors. In 1922 we were Seniors. ' The' halls were oursg ours to have and to hold. We had reached the goal of our ambitions. Now would we go on to the top or would we be "Fallen Flowers" by the wayside as many others had been? The sturdy eleven had entered to finish, out of a total enrollment of twenty-five or more for the four years work. This year the same achievement of the Junior year were carried on only to a greater extent. During the latter part of the year we were given a magnificent banquet by the class of eleven Juniors. Also our class gave a play which was well attended and the proceeds were used to pay our graduation expenses. In May came the glorious time when we were getting ready to leave the halls of the old school, perhaps some of us never to enter them again. Were we glad to go, or, were we sorry? I think those were the four most wonderful years of our lives, years that can never be brought back again, years in which we gained friendships which no space of years or miles can break. Some were leaving school forever, others would enter someplace else but the old ties would be broken to a certain extent. Thus ended our school life in the old High School. We were ready to shoulder life's burdens now. We extend to the class of 1927 and all the future classes heartiest good luck in gaining their ambitions. May the bonds of fricnclship never sever, Nor the years and the miles us divide, May we all be true to each other, And stand by the old high school. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Social Events "Am I Intrudingj' coached by Miss Laura McMasters, was our first home talent play given. On account of its well selected caste and their faithful work, it was very successful with Howard Campbell, or Jerry the leading character. Under the supervision of Miss Coots, accompanist, Miss Olds and Miss Filiere, an excellent "Christmas Cantata" was given by the grades. The Senior Class fostered a four number Lyceum Course this year which proved a valuable financial asset. The numbers consisted of the "Dixie Jubilee Colored Quartet," furnishing us with music and amusement galore, the Frye and Company, the Magicians with heart thrilling tricks, Selah G. Wright and Co., Entertainers, Musicians, and Readers, the fourth number being a home talent play, "When A Feller Needs A Friend" coached by M. L. Goetting. Every Monday morning the entire school was called together in our auditorium for Chapel services. Many were the pleasant entertainments which were furnished us especially the many original stories from Mr. Caldwell, who could always bring out a moral in them. Each teacher as well as each pupil contributed very helpfully to the programs and in turn. The Farmers Institute held in 'our building lasting for two days and two nights was of interest to the school as well as to the community. Dr. C. C. Kohl from Bow- ling Green, Mrs. Cartwright from Delaware, and Mr. Tell Thompson from Findlay were our speakers. The play, "Winning of Joy," was their closing event. The Seniors greatly enjoyed the expensive banquet which the Juniors served for us at the Woman's Club at Bowling Green. "When we are gray and old at heart, memories of our Junior-Senior Banquet will never depart." Our speakers for our Baccalaureate and Commencement were learned men who were well capable of reaching and maintaining the attention of the audience as well as the class. The county held a musical, oratorieal and a reading contest, consisting of winners from a local, district and semi-county contests in order. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Wanted Some one to call me, sweetheart ,,7,, A German Police Dog 77 77 Some Flashy Garters ,,,,.,, ,,,, 7 Something to Make Howard C. behave 7 Wings Like an Angel7 77 A Boyish Form and a Little Flesh ,,,, A Good Looking and Gay i'Sweet Mamma"77 A Pair of Stilts to Make Me Tall 77 7, ,,,, A Wife: Kind, Gentle, Capable of Keeping a Man More Work and Less Talking 7 ,,,,,, ,,,,,,,, 7 77 Spectacles For Eyes in Back of My Head 7 7 7 A Baby Doll--Blonde Preferred ,,,,,, ,,,,,, . 7 Many a Bruise at B.

THE BOARD May we at this time again express our thanks and appreciation to the school board of 1926-'27 who so carefully selected our faculty with whom they co-operated so wholeheartedly in furnishing us with our many necessities especially our Commencement and Baccalaureate Speakers. We feel that due respect must also be given our previous boards who made our building possible and to our parents and citizens of the township upon Whom the burden of taxation is placed in order to maintain such a school as we proudly own. 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 ., r r 2,1 C 1927 MILTONIAN 1927 Grade Enrollment GRADE I Donavin Bowers, Dorothy Herringshaw, Ned Hathaway, Fred Herr- ingshaw, Harold Hass, Geraldine Beckman, Paul Wilhelm, Gerald Beckman, Lorin Hicks, Florence VVismar, Lewis Konrad, Doris Kramp, Doris Dill, Wilma Trumloul, Gayford Graff, Junior Kronberg, Florence Dazell, Ray- mond Herr, Donald Harshman, Alvin Funk, Marjorie Emrick, Charles Konrad, Frances Heinsman, Arrell Kieffer.

Though our high school days are all ended, The pleasures they held, too, are past Treasured memories of days spent together, Hopes, joys that always will last. Tomorrow we shall start on our journey. Through life, and all that means, Our prayers may oft be unanswered And our dreams may remain only dreams. Down the pathway of life with its roses, And their thorns that are seldom a few To you, our Dear Alma Mater We shall always be loyal and true. To Mr. Cooley and his teacher helpers, To our parents, friends, board-members, too. We tender our most sincere thanks For this, our commencement, from you. In the future, what're fate decrees us Alma Mater, We'll always be true The Class of '25 trusts that those who will follow Maybe as steadfast and loyal to you. 1927 IVIILTONIAN 1927 Compliments of Dr. Roe DENTIST Weston, Ohio Stouffer's Big Store HARDWARE, STOVES, FURNI- TURE, RUGS AND MACHINERY Come And Visit Our Store North Baltimore, Ohio The Miller Bros.

At that time their chief aim was to give practical information on farm production problems. They have outgrown that narrow field so that today they are real community con- ventions where the problems connected with the Farm, Farm Home, School, Church, and Community are discussed. This is one meeting held in the community throughout the year where folks can come to- gether on a common level to discuss their mutual problems from an unbiased standpoint. The institute is a real factor in helping to solve individual and community problems. The interest in community institute is growing each year. Eleven in- stitutes were held in Wood County last year, the largest number ever held in any one year. MILTON CENTER FARMERS' INSTITUTE J. A. Businger, Pres. Martin Stauffer, Sf'C,'Il. Mrs. L. H.
