NVhetstone. P 1 1 , 4 N Q fir miie Glztli 05f Qlipz 3H1Ilt1IUl1TlI Ii indeed is that hulnan soul, that has never felt the thrill of exploring the un- ! known. Many of the aged would gladly trade places with the boy or girl, Who, on Y a rainy day sits. curled up in a chair, lost in the enchantment of adventure and ex- ploration of a Swiss Family Robinson lor a Robinson f'rusoe. Can we ,not all remem- ber the thrill that came over us as children as we explored the recesses of an old forgotten trunk or a forbidden draw- er? No observing person can forget the sight of a group of small boys exploring the village dump on -the edge of town. One never could tell what valuable treasures could be found there. Many a wise mother has quietly. without fuss or anger. picked up these many abandoned treasures. knowing that to the child, the greatest thrill comes in the act of finding. and not in the at tual thing itself. I'pon such an ideal should a school he founded. Edu- cation should be the supreme adventure of youth. A But ,how few of us actually see it in that light. Life is a stage. ac-- cording to Shakespeare. upon which we have been hurled by forces not of our own making. What is this stage? lVhat is the play all about? lVhy are we here and where are we going? The tragedy of life is not death but the faet that millions and millions of the people who have lived. have never even questioned the dust beneath their feet, or the heavens above for that matter. but have only gone on with the drift of the mass. Somehow or other as life advances we tend to become more and more static in our thought. give up the seeming riddle of the stage, settle lg, oo idwfzlgs ourselves comfortably into some ism of faith or belief and quietly surrender to the peacefnlness of undisturbed thought. But here and there is an actor who refuses to drift with the crowd. who raises his questioning eyes to the heavens, and we have a Newton or a Gallileo. Here is one who refuses to believe that the stage is as small as the crowd so loudlyqxargues and we have a Columbus Setting forth upon a great adventure. In our mind's eye can we not picture a few of the non-conformists, a few of the re- bellious actors. there a Bell. an Edison. a Wright, here a Hauxley, Shakespeare or Bacon. How quickly we recall these great pioneering souls. their names are immortal and never can be forgotten: but who remembers the millions of other players upon the stage? ' As we study the progress of the world 'we see that all growth and reform has been caused by the activity of these few rebellious actors. Truly we can say with Carlyle that History is the essence ot' innumerable biographies. And so the Cll'0fll1l of the educator is to arouse among his 'stu- dents an irresistible desire for knowledge of life. an un- qnenchable thirst for righteousness. and a deep and abid- ing love for their fellowmen. As the present Senior class passes out into the world of performance. may they ,never forget the thrill of discov- ering the new and the unknown, and if a few reach the heights of supreme accomplishment then truly will teach- ers not have been in vain.

The four years in High School are the best years of our life. Perhaps you make a friend in High Sehool that is your friend throughout life. We will always renlember these friends, "for dear are the friends of ehildhoodf' V Time flies and the class of '25 is spread to the four winds of the world. One here. one there. but few Still near the old school. ' ' A Senior of '25 then old- and ,1:ray'takes l1is grand- daughter upon his knee and-tells her of' the wonderful old days at Morenei High. '- -I - "Little girl.'f says he, "you are about to start in High I f St-hool and I want to tell you of my days at Morenei High. I started to school to get what knowledge I could, but I got off the track many times. I remember the time the old gang skipped school to go to a football game. Well. we acquired knowledge the following weeks. I never knew my ability as an author until then. Then there were the parties. flag rushes, tugs of war and banquets that we had. Ah! those were the days. "But that was 11ot all. little girl. Never forget that you go to school to acquire an education and make your goal the highest possible and then attempt to reach that goal. Study: work, because nothing is gained without work, and always do your best to' make others do their best and I am sure that you will be a sueeess.

Seninr Glass Qtlisiurg ue 'I' WAS .lune 1925, A Senior lad had been Ei? df - playing tennis at sehool and the approach- ing twilight reminded him that he must hurry home and prepare for the Com- meneexnent exercises which were to he that night. As he walked slowly holneward he thought how glad he would be when it was all over and he wouldn't have to go to sehool any lnore. He was warm and tired and after eat- ing a little supper he decided to rest awhile. Soon sleep overtook him and this is what he dreamed: 'Twas in the fall of 1921 and a large class had entered Jlorenei High School. All of the members of this class were eager to learn and niany patterned after the more honored Seniors. Most of that first year was spent in conquering the diffieulties whieh usually trouble Freslnnen.- such as overt-oining bashfnlness and the mastering of Algebra and Latin. Ilowever time sped on and soon this same class be- eaxne known as Sophoxnores. As a reward for the knowl- edge gained that first year the Sophoinores were allowed to initiate the Freshmen. It was during the second year that this class won fame becfause of the athletes which were within its ranks. In September 1923. Mr." Heise came as superintendent to Morenvi High S4-hool. Ile desired earnestly to make the sehool one of whieh anyone might be proud. The Juniors ff Jia as well as the other elasses were willing to help, as they took the responsibility of conducting a Lyceum course. As Sophomores this same class had entertained the Freshmen but now as Juniors they were allowed to entertain the Se- niors and the Junior-Senior banquet was an example Of the good srhool spirit whieh was developing within the walls of Morenei lligh, This year the class was not only noted for its athletes but also for other talents which were brought to ligrht at the Literary contests between Morenci and Blisdiehl. A I Finally, after three years of preparation, thirty-four inenihers of this 1-lass assumed the responsibilities and hon- ors of Seniors. I'nder the direction of Mr. Whetstone and Mr. Heise these students immune the leaders of their school. All during the year 1924-25 the Seniors worked for the glo- ry of Morenei Iligh School and made this, their last year, one of which all were proud. The dream was ended and soon the lad awoke but his mind was troubled. "Yes, it had been only a dream. but was not this his 4-lass. and was this not the pic-ture of his high school life?" Suddenly light came to this youth of the class of '25 and he began to realize what these four years had meant lo him and what they would mean to him in the future. He now knew that tonight he was saying good-bye to one of the very best friends he had ever known and that friend was Morenei High St-hool. JU ICJ i .E l if if gi .Di 5c,ho0h ,.,..

'ffjnly a few days had passed before we were called to- gether by our class advisor, Miss Phelps, to hold our first class meeting. Harold Strayer was chosen president and we be- gan immediately to take our plaee as the worthy Freshman elass of 1922-1923. At the beginning: of our Sophomore year we elected .lane Webster president and have since clemoustrated our faith in the fairer sex by choosing Gladys Bishop president for our Junior year. Virginia Hayes has had the honor of being our seeretary and treasurer eontinuously sinee we began our career in M. II, S. - This year we have had the honor and distint-tion of having the eaptain of the football team among our num- ber and we are justly proud of Captain Griffitlfs work. Several societies have been formed since we brought our pep into the High School. A.,larg.:e nnmbe rof our class take Chorus and Glee Club and some of the girls belong to the I'kelele 4-lub. Soc-ial affairs have never interfered with our school work so far, although we have had sever- al 4-lass parties. We are looking forward to a pleasant time at our Junior-Senior banquet. We have had supervision of the Lyeeum 4-ourse and the Country Gentleman contest and our pep into the High St-hool, A large number of our class advisor for the past two years, these two undertakings have been sueeesses. We have gathered from the Slll'l'0lllltllllg'l'0llllt1'y many new members. so that our ranks now number fifty-two, and as we are nearing our Senior year we hope to be the largest elass that has ever graduated from Morenei High School.

They were of the great and powerful tribes of M-hee. II-tee. S-shee now, for their ehief. the great ,Chief Elementary Grades, had just signed a treaty and had smoked the proverbial pipe of peaee and now the tribes had entered their High School days. The name of this flourishing tribe was Freshmen. and luany were their braves and warriors bold. These mighty people were just pitching eauip. 'Twas on September 6, that signs of mental laziness were predif-ted if they did not reaeh their new ramp soon. So they hurried on, glad to be rid of the impending disaster. A week passed and the tribe was settled at last. But bark! Signs of unrest are prevalent. for a st-out has just brought word that the Latin and Algebra tribes were on the uiarpath. The Freslnnen were brave, ah yes, very bravel'-' They kissed their beloved parties good-bye. and went out to 1-onquer their foes. A few went to the happy luuiting ground as a result of the stiaiggle. but the majori- ty were saved. V Then Came the time for the meeting of the most gra- eious people to eleet a ruler. supervised by the High Prin- eess Nelson. the official ruler of the tribe. Carolyn Taylor was appointed High Chief of the Freshmen tribe of red- skins. Hugh Miller her assistant and Foster Shoup to care for the wauipuui. Day after day passed. when ne-ws eame that a new tribe was somewhere about.. Seouts were innnediately sent out and returned to report that the alien people were a band known as the Sophomore. Many were the tortures that the Freshmen suffered at-their hands. But after some time the Sophomore grew tired. for their more ref-ent :lt- taeks had proved futile. To eelebrate this event the Freshmen held an big war danee in lveeexuber, ealled a "Hard Times Party" by some As time goes ou, the Freshmen are beeoming more and more subdued until now they have lost all signs of sav- ag.-:eness and are ealinly living on their reservation in Mo- renei. 1'erhaps even now you 1-an see them in "room nine" a eivilized, worthy. intelligent people.

On account of the fact that thu nnnunl of 1924 was an financial failure, we, the Seniors, were forced to sell this book at practically twive the amount received for The Senior of last year. The annual staff, together with the co-operation of other students, have worked hard to put out this volume of The Senior. and tried our very best to make it il suc- 1-oss.

The gol- .S-EE den sunlight streamed down over the em- erald Vermont hills. The gracious elm to laugh and dance, flaunting their gay colors in Mother Natui-e's face. The birds sung and chirruped incessantly. Grace Coolidge. black hair neatly combed, dressed in a cool green frock, stood gazing out the window. Her glance passed over the sheen of the hills, softened a little as it caught sight of the dim burial ground under the dis- tant pines, and then brightened as she saw the nodding flowers. What a beautiful long. summer day! If only they could stay here. As if voicing her thoughts Calvin Coolidge glanced up from the newspaper he was reading and spoke: "I wish we could stay here all summer. Grace. But I feel that I MUST :zo where my work lies." ' Grace sigflied as she thought of Washington. Tlien she suid. "lJon't you suppose I could stay in Northampton? I would be much happier there." Ualvin nodded understandingly. "But," said he. "your duty-" ' "Yes I know l should he with you-and yet we both ought to he with the boys." Both seemed to be thinking the problem over. What should they do? Then young Calvin dashed into the room and thrust a paper into his father's hand. "Oh, hurry. dad. hurry! A man on horseback came- it's from the president! Uh hurry, D0 hurry I" In his excitement he raised his voir-e and John, hear- ing il. rushed into the room. "Whats happened ?" Mr. Coolidge quietly opened the message and read it. When he had finished he looked solemnly at his wife. "Itis from Secretary Christian. I am requested to go to Washington." Cheerfully he added. "But we'll make the best of it." John looked at his mother and father. How worried they seemed. What could he and Cal do? Suddenly it came to him. They could finish their vacation here, go to Northampton to school and get along without their father and mother. Immediately he voiced his plan and he was rewarded by seeing the worried ldoks leave. At last his father spoke: "I believe that I had better leave as early as possible in the morning." Mrs. Coolidge rose, saying she would go and pack his bag. There was silence in the room for a few minutes. The clock ticked on its way to the hour. Mr. Coolidge's paper rustled as he turned it. Just as he finished reading it, his father. tall and sturdy. entered the room. "Any news. Cal?" , Cal put his paper on the table. Then he told his fath- er of the note, and his leaving in the morning. ' A look of consternation passed over the old Colonel's face. But what should he do for help. There was the hay and many other things. Calvin Jr. hopped up and spoke excitedly: "Hurrah! We can stay here. John! Grandfather needn't worry about rain., We'll put the hay in." Grace Coolidge entered the room just in time to hear .lohn agree. By this time dusk had fallen. She glanced at the clock. "How quickly time flies. We must go to hed at once. as we have to rise so early in the morning." At last the room was quiet. The clock ticked on. Ten o'c-look. Eleven o'cloCk. The moon shone into the room. Half-past eleven. One, two. three, four, five. six. seven, eight, nine. ten. eleven. twelve. The elattcr of a horse-'s hoofs in the yard. Bang! "i'olonel! Oh Colonel !" No longer is the house quiet and peaceful. The Colonel hurries intogthe living room. Hastily the kerosene lamp is lighted. Its brave light drives away the shadows. The Volonel glances at the clock. . t'Only twelve! What can anybody want at this hour?" The voice outside calls urgently. The Colonel goes quickly to the door. He opens it. A man, covered with the dust of his long ride, thrusts a telegram into his hand. "Quick, it's for Mr. Calvin Coolidge!" The man steps into the house while the Colonel goes to the foot of the stairs and calls: "Cal. Cal!" In a few minutes Mr. and Mrs. Coolidge and the boys appear. The Colonel hands the message to Calvin. Quick- ly he tears it open and reads. Then he turns to the an- xiously waiting family. "Mr. Harding is dead. I am to go to Washington at once. A gasp of surprise from the entire family followed this announcement. "Washington I" said Mrs. Coolidge. "l'resideut!" said the Volonel. The two boys merely stared. ' "Yes, and I shall take oath at once. But first allow me to write Mrs. Harding." Picking up tlie pen Mr. Coolidge wrote a few lines to Mrs. Harding. He handed it to the man who had brought the telegram. Then he turned to his father.' ' - ' "You are a notary?" I 4- "Yes."

The hall-room floor was crowded with gay whirling couples, and the shrill P laughs of the women heard above the din of the orchestra. Down in the basement in the furnace room, the janitor, tired with his day's work, tipped his chair against the wall so that his hack covered up the "No Smoking" sign. With a happy sigh he took out his blackened clay pipe. filled it with tobacco, lit it and gave the match a careless toss towards a pile of shavings. The janito1"s eyes commenced to blink sleepily. his head started to nod, finally it rested upon his chest. His snoring pro- 'claimed that he was asleep. 1 The pungent odor of smoke filled the air. The pile of shavings had caught fire. Eagerly the little, greedy flames licked up every shaving. and started to climb the wall. Soon the wall looked like a mass of fiery serpents. The janitor awoke with a start. saw his plight. and made a dash for the stairway. But alas! the fire monster had the upper hand. The stairway was full of dancing, mocking flames. With one pull of the fire alarm the jani- tor sank to the floor in despair. The flames danced and crackled around him in savage glee. A Outside the night was black and peaceful, Suddenly in a voice of terror the cry of "Fire!" rang out and seemed to rcverherate on the still air. Instantly the distant roar of the fire engines are heard. It grows louder and louder. It stops. A crowd gathers. Men are shouting out orders and advice. Now the fire monster is in all his glory. He sends mocking flames out the windows: he roars in his fury, and stands out in a strange and lurid contrast against 'the black sky: A ' f The air is full of flying bricks' and' burning embers, theiuner walls of the huildiuig collapse wiflra groan and crash, sparks flying around add confusion to the scene. The shrill cries of terror of women are heard amid the groans of the injured and dying. Above all this scene of confusion and terror the fire monster reigns supreme. The combat between fire and water is fierce. The crackling and roar drowns out the sizzling and splash of the water. One flame dies down only to have another take its place with defiance. It is dawn and the red-eyed monster proves himself the master. The crowd dispersesg the flames with one last taunt of victory leap sky-high in what seems like a roar of derisive laughter. and then die down. Off in the ristance the rumbling of the receding engines is heard, it grows fainter and fainter and is heard no more. It is dawn, the turmoil is over. Only a few people are remaining to offer help, to the injured who lie in huddled heaps on the grass. Where is the merry crowd? Where are the beautiful and laughing Women? Where is the music, the beautiful lighted building? All that remains are four blackened, ru- ined walls. The janitor awoke with a start, looked at his cold pipe and mopped his perspiring forehead with a large, red grimy bandanna. "Thank my lucky stars," he murmured, "it was only a dream." G. B.

This outburst came from Dale Mercer, who was seated in the tree Q directly above me. Around me, lying in ks Q nervous positions on the ground, were 1-S' Roy Banks, Glenn Fox and Burton Wage1'. At the time we were discussing hotly whether or not a certain house in town was haunted. The house, which was on the edge of town, certainly looked haunted, but us boys were forever arguing over the matter. Which ever Way we argued, none of us would pass that house at night unless we had to. The talk grew hotter, as it always did, then: "I say the house is haunted," said Glenn. "I went past there two weeks ago and I saw something white in one Window." "You're seeing things," came from Royg "there never were any spooks and there never will be. What would a self-respecting ghost do in that old house. Tell me that." "0h. you don't know so muchf' Glenn shot back. "A ghost don't like good houses. He wants an old one with the windows broken and boards loose." "You know a lot about it. you do" put in Dale. "My grandfather know a boy who knew a boy that had an uncle whose father-'s house was haunted and he had to burn down the house to get rid of the ghost." "Well. my great-grandfather saw a ghost once and would have caught it but. it vanished in the air," said Burton. "You Q-an't catch a ghost." said Roy. "There aren't any, so you can't catch any." "I'll het I can catch one," burst out Burton. "So can l," chiiued in Glenn and Dale. 'Well. why don't you try.'i I said, butting in. For the next hour we discussed the best ways and means of capturing ghosts, and set the attempt for that night. Then we all went to dinner. - That evening about eight o'clock we all met on a street corner after each one had told his mother that he was staying at a friend's house for the night. From the corner we hurried to the house, but upon reaching the place our spirit for adventure failed. At last, after work- ing up eaeh other's courage. we went inside. Here we refused to separate. so all stood by while Bur- ton, Glenn and Dale, fixed their ghost traps. Burton propped open the front door and tied a rope across it. XVhen the ghost fell he would get it, Glenn had a rope las- so with which to lasso the ghost, while Dale refused to bother it at all. Having fixed the trap, we went into the center room and cowered together in one corner. Every time a Window creaked or any noise eamc we would start half out of our shoes with fear. There We sat in huddled fear and shivering, listening to the mice running in the room above. All at once, after what seemed hours of waiting, we heard something at the door. Then as something indis- tinct and white came gliding into the room, we left. Glenn forgot his lasso and jumped from one of the windows into a mud puddle. This. however, did not stop him in his flight for home. The rest of us dashed for the front door, where. tripping over Burton's rope, we rolled from the poreh and. picking ourselves up, dashed for home. in safety. The next morning. immediately after breakfast was over. we assembled in l'Jale's back yard, far from the laughter of the older folk. As we sat there thinking of the past night's events, a dog which we had never seen before trotted past the yard, and, strange to say, that dog was il nice, pure White. We all looked doubtfully at each other, but none of us spoke. When the dog had passed from sight we solemnly agreed that the house was haunted and took up a new argument. "l was not the first to 1'l1Il.H said Glenn, "Oh no. you wasnt" jeered Dale. t'Rats." said Roy. "we all ran." And that's that. A. N. 'Cllhe High School 2Hz1Ilnfne'en Qgartg The High School instead of having the annual High School Fair decided to have a Hallowe'en party, which was held October 31, 1924, at the school building. All parties attending came masked and the evening do- ings will long be remembered by all. Among the various masquerade costumes Fletcher Bishop as the Hunchback of Notre Dame received the first prize. A few games were played in the main hall, after which, all gathered in the assembly room where the apple, paper and weiner races made much enjoyment for all. Pumpkins and corn fodder were used as decorations. Popcorn and apples a plenty were served as refresh- ments. The Student Council had charge of all arrangements and so remained after the party to clean up the popcorn, broken apples and pumpkins. A. M. 11 First Freshman-'tHow far are you from the answer?

It was all white and gleaming with cool looking green shutters to add to its colonial beauty. Her sparkling cobblestone walk was bordered with spicy pinks and demure English violets. And 1116 garden, oh such a garden! It's tall holly- hocks, marigolds, moss roses. purple gentians, sweet peas a11d violets, were a beacon of gorgeous light to beauty- seeking tourists. A Grandmother looked over the top of her glasses, as she heard footsteps coming heavily up the walk. Norma Shearson, grandmother's only daughter, walked heavily to- ward her. "Hello, dearief' Grandmother called cheerily. HHello," came back the reply, but a little gruffly. Norma sat down. looked at the floor and commenced ruffling up the sand at her feet. Then the storm came. Tears welled up in the soft blue eyes of the younger woman. and a small.. wrinkled hand patted her shoulder softly. "Tell me, Norma," said the soft voice. i'lt'sf-it's Bobbie I" came back the reply with a sob. "Why, what's the matter with the child? Has he caught some disease? Or did he take a cold when he fell in the river Saturday? Tell me, dearie. and I will get my herbs and come right over." "No, it isn't a case that herbs can cure, mother. It's his schooling. The principal just called on me. And he's going to expel him if he don't study harder. Oh, it's aw- ful! And to think it's my own son. He won't get his "Al- gebra' and he hates 'Foreign Language' But if he is ex- pelled. if he is, it's going to be a terrible disgrace. What will I do?" 5505-D9 HE sunshine smiled down on Grandmother ll fi J 0 X431 "Just leave it to me. dcarie. I will see Bobby, and don't worry. Bobhie's a good boy. Why, I have known him all his life and have never known him to do wrong. He'll make good. I know he will!" f Norma left much relieved and Grandmother Luff put up her knitting and went into the house. Noon came, and so did Bobbie. As he went by the house, Grandmother hailed him. He was glad, for he loved Grandmother dearly and he cleared the steps with a single bound. Bobbie stayed for lunch, and then they talked, first about every- day subjects and then about school. Bob's brow contracted in a deep frown at the very thought of it and he kicked viciously at the rug. l-ie had been failing noticeably in his work for the past two months. His Algebra teacher did not understand him. Bobbie was in class, that's true, but his mind was elsewhere. The trees, birds and flowers fascinated him. He was fishing for trout instead of making a X b equals ab. It was worse yet in his foreign language class. The in- structor, a fussy, little man, admitted he was absolutely hopeless. In fact. he was just drifting. Drifting through lite, bored and tired of it all.. He couldn't get ahead. Just drifting. Perhaps the first thought was that he was- taking the wrong course. But it was not, so. To change the 00111788 would mean the rcarrangement of the whole routine of classes. One student changing would invite more and the whole class would he in a wave of excitement continually. Of course. Bob's argument was strong. What boy xl09Sll'fI have strong arguments? And Robert Shearson was every inch a true boy. Grandmother was a determined, although gentle woman, and when she said she would arrange things, the things WERE arranged. They talked and talked, and when Bobbie left, a broad smile was on his face. Norma Shearson heard no more about the troublesome subjects, only she did notice that her son spent a great deal of his time with Grandmother. The report cards when examined showed a decided gain. The wonder grew in the Sheai-son family. "Just what were the magic words that had brought so great a change?" Three years passed. Pleasant, but years of hard work for Bobbie. At last he stood ready and waiting at the end of the road of knowledge. In another week Bobbie would graduate. Then Bobbie told the secret of his success that he had kept so diligently. The time he had spent with Grand- mother Luff was used for studying. Latin and French became easy then. for Grandmother made it so interesting by telling stories about ancient Rome and Gaul with its many beauties and by reading the many beautiful French plays. . Even the troublesome Algebra was soon conquered when one set about to get it. The focusing of the mind on an uninteresting subject and making it interesting by strong will power. is a great achievement and Bobbie ac- quired that very thing. Grandmother smiled at Norma when she came to thank her and told her this. "My, I'm glad it's over, though. and Bobbie graduated. You ean't imagine how much I crammed over Bob's books. Of course I didn't mean to let him get ahead of me. So I studied. and studied hard. Did you ever think your moth- er would go so far when she started out. Norma ?" And Norma promptly said that She didn't. So when Grandmother said that Bobbie might be president of the United States. Norma agreed that he would. Then she added with a smile. "He certainly will if he has you for a campaign manager. for there's no more drifting for any of us." C. T. '28, 1 Zgihle Qflinsirurtiun in urenci Schools 1 NE of the most hopeful tendencies of the present day is the new emphasis on re- s ligious education. This movement is tak- ing many forms. But they all grow out of the conviction that religion is one of the basic instincts of man. As one has said: "Man is incurably religious." Nature makes us religious but Nature makes us Christian, Mohammedan or Buddhist. - Assuming the religious instinct to be a basic part of lmman nature, it follows that no one can be fully educat- ed who has not developed his religious possibilities. In fact education, according to the best authorities. is the sum total of all of life's influences. If human beings were as they ought to be. education would not be necessary. But they are not, and education is the means by which they are changed from what they are to what they ought to be. Hence Education, in its true and broadest sense, and re- ligious training mean exactly the same thing. And it fol- lows that there can be no adequate education without re- ligious culture. It is generally conceded that the Bible is one of the best source books of religious materials in existence. And hence one of the most potent influences in education. This constitutes the logic back of the new impetus for religious education. And one of its most manifest forms is the increasing demand for Bible instruction in our Public Schools. And it is much to the credit of the Board of Edu- cation of the Moreuei schools that they are among the pio- neers of this great movement. Due to the far-sighted vision of the School Board, the hearty co-operation of the Super- intendent, and the earnest solicitude of the local churches. Biblical instruction in the Morenci Schools is a fact. The plan is a very simple one. The ministers of the lo- cal churches are the instructors. The classes meet in the school on exactly the saint- basis and under the same su- pervision as classes in any other subject. Instruction is of- fered to all students above the sixth grade, but the courses are elective. A A Syllabus of the courses offered was prepared by the State Department 'of Public Instruction in co-operation with the Michigan State Teachers Association which con- stitutes a most excellent outline of study. Credit is offered for the work done, since the same standard of scholarship is required as in any other sub-- ' ject. The aim of the instruction is not to make members of any denomination, nor to indoctrinate the student with any particular creed or dogma, but rather to acquaint him with the great characters, truths, and reproducible experiences of the Bible, Without which nine-tenths of the World's best literature is unintelligible. The number of students availing themselves of the in- struction is exceedingly gratifying. And it is hoped that the experiment will result in much practical good, and in a de- mand for a permanent place in the school curriculum for Bible Instruction. - Glenn Dailey, To find the relation between a loaf of bread and a locomotive: . 1 A loaf of bread is a necessity. 2 Necessity is the mother of invention. 3 An engine is an invention.

'f"' .ggm T THE beginning of the year the teachers 3 :fi felt that the pupils would be benefitted 'X-Q by having a literary society in the school. ig S' -' So after much talking and planning, a lit- XQ! erary society was finally formed, known as the "Phelps Literary Society." About forty students compose this society. Every time the name of the "Phelps Literary So- ciety" is mentioned. it recalls to the minds of its members the third Tuesday evening of each month, when the mem- bers and officers with their faculty critics, Miss Phelps and Mr. WVhetstone, gather together to hear some masterpiece or oration given by some of the memberssbefore the critical audience. - Each program of the society is based upon one theme. For instance, one very interesting program was devoted to the VVorld War. At this meeting Mr. Heise told some of his experiences of the war. K The aim of-our society is to "learn to appear before a large audience with as much case as possible and also to understand literary ideals and use them to a greater ad- vantage." Harold Strayer holds the worthy office of president, while Bertha Owens is our vice president. Another of our officers who is always on the jobhis Alline Scott, our secre- tary and treasurer. A H We hope that we may have success and win fame in the future. -Each and every one will try his best to make this society a REAL Literary Society. E. M. N J. .lust how big do you think you are?

The meet was started at 8 o'clock, which made most of the boys get up before their usual time. but all of the team succeeded in getting their clothes changed in time for the first event, which was the 100, yard dash, in which Alan Morningstar placed second. The next event was the discus throw, where we got a second by Granger throwing it 96 feet, 5 inches. In the high hurdles Gillen placed second. The mile run was an exciting -race, with Howe of Tecumseh leading Griffith by only a distance of a few feet. This made another second for Morenci. We succeeded in getting another second when Morningstar was beaten by about a foot in the 220 yard dash. Griffith showed his ability in the half mile by winning over Howe by a number of yards. In the high jump six of the contestants tied for third, which gave us one-third of a point, Granger and Ferguson succeeded in being in the tie. ln the low hurdles Gillen succeeded in winning first place, which was run in two groups and against time. The relay was the last of the events in which the M0- renci team lost by only a few feet. Gillen, Kenwood Morn- ingstar. Griffith and Alan Morningstar were the members of the Morenci relay team. Throughout the morning it was a struggle for first place between Morenci and Tecumseh, the latter forging ahead when one of their men tied for second place in the pole vault. This gave Tecumseh a total of 31 1-6 points to 3IOI'61ll'i?S 15 1 With the relay, the remaining event, Mo- renci gave up hopes of the meet. It was an ideal day for the meet. but the track was sandy, which made it hard for the contestants who were used to a cinder track.

The club was begun after Thanksgiving and the new officers took charge of the first meeting which was held in December. There are about fifty active members, but all Senior High and Ninth Grade girls are eligible for mem- bership. The word "League" means a cov- enant between persons or parties for the accomplishment of some purpose. Une of the purposes of this league is to bring the girls of the different classes together and also to establish more friendly relations between the girls and the members of the faculty. By meeting in a social Way We create opportunities for understanding and for Worthwhile friendships. Each girl has some kind of talent, and another pur- pose of this league is to help the girls find their talents and to develop them, thus making leaders in different lines of activities. The endeavor of the league is to give each girl a means of expression and a chance to show where she re- ally excels. With this purpose in mind our programs have been varied. We have usually had a speaker to talk on subjects of interest to all. Then there is the question box which should become more and more the center of inter- est as individual members grow in assurance and power of expression. The boys have had many societies or clubs, but with the girls it has been different ,for we have had no organi- zation to include all the girls and give each an equal chance to grow and develop. It is true that a few girls have played basketball, and another small group belonged to Glee Club, but unless a girl could "tril1," or make a basket, she has felt left out. The Girls' League gives all the girls in High School a chance to become acquainted, to mingle together, and to take her own best place in the activities of the school. IP 'digs B M421 Ju ,fH.:IB11IU1'i1l11I RVTH TENV A little more than a year ago there came to Morenci Iligh School a little Freshman, timid, quiet and unknown, yet coming with the spirit of good will and the desire to lend a helping hand that she made such a place for herself in two short weeks as to be elected president of her class i11 the first election of the year. In every constructive effort of her class, and of the High School, the student body has witnessed her in a po- sition of leadership. and hor willingness to do the difficult, or disagreeable things, has made her known' to a large -group of faculty and students who today mourn her loss. We who have known what a fight she was making for life have been thinking in terms of the beautiful poem by Alan Seiger: ' She has a rendezvous with Death at a disupted barricade, As spring comes round with .rustling shade And apple blossoms fill the air. And since it had to be. it seems u beautiful thing that she could go home to her mother on Mother's Day. The memory of her faithfulness and helpfulness will remain with us and may we also remember the lesson of how fine a thing it is to live even sixteen years of life nobly.

The club is composed of twenty girls from the High School as a whole. - Much time has been spent in study, preparatory to public appearance, under the direction of Mrs. Nelson. We owe much to her for her suggestions, patience and untiring work with us. Public performances of the Glee Club before Assembly and Girls' League promoted interest in thc work. gliligh Snhnnl Clilqnrus Another important High School musical organization is Chorus. Over one hundred pupils reported when the call sounded early in the school year. Very soon new books were purchased. From these many very pretty selections were studied.

Suc- cessful men in all walks of life hold these things as outstanding qualities that have made for their success: Motovationg ini- tiativeg ability to organize: weighing of relative valuesg co-operation: willingness to observe. etc. These must be the outstanding qualities that must be sought in our educational system. whether in Latin. Mathematics. History, Athletics or what not. Any study or activity that contributes to these qualities has educational value, and I am attempting to show what athletics contribute to these qualities. Good sportsmanship is the "Golden Rule" applied to athletics. Moral qualities such as honesty. truthtulness. loyalty. and co-operation are included in that terni. Good sportsmanship is a matter of education and is not-confined to the size of the school or town. It depends, on the in- dividuals and the way the athletic contests are conducted. Our well conducted athletic events are good object les- sons of law and order. They are examples 'tothe social group, of good government. This influence is sure to have its effect on the numbers who attend Atlileticffga-mes. We are trying to make our athletic contests ysucb. that specta- tors are better citizens for having been there. A True enough. athletics can be made an evil thing. but good coaches can do more to remedy this evilg than any teacher or faculty member anywhere. Good coaches are the local heroes who have the opportunity to make or to break all the good of athletics. Get a gentleman first, and if pos- sible get somebody with a knowledge of the game, but look well to the first point, and if by chance you have made a mistake. dismiss your man, regardless of how many games his teams have won. ' Along' with good sportsmanship should go the ethics of athletic courtesy. Visiting teams are to be honored guests of the home team. Good sportsmanship does away with the "little town stuff" and athletics teach this principle better than any one study because the individual practices it. , A winning team means absolutely nothing if they win' for the sake of praise. and have a selfish end in view. and will no anything to win. If there is anything that shows up a team it is "grand- stand" playing. Successful coaches soon instil into their teams the motives of playing not for self but for othersg for their school and for the sake of playing the game. Athletics tend to make men who furnish no alibis, and who carry a thing through when once it is started. Elbert Hubbard put the same thought very delightfully in his essay on "carrying the message to Garcia." Good coaches can develop in boys. the instinct of pugnacity so that they will have a back-bone instead of a wish bone. That coach who can develop in the fellows. loyalty to the school they represent and faith in training rules, and the determination to stick by them even if his team does not win, will win out. But the team that has these motives and ideals. usual- ly wins its share of victories. ' Another point that makes for success is initiative. Ath- letics tend to develop initiative in a peculiar way. The coach can explain fundamentals of different games, but un- less the team has some initiative to carry them out, they are likely to lose. An interesting' thing about athletics is the fact that no two games are alike. No two football, base- ball. or basketball games have ever been played alike and it is short-sightedness on the part of the coach to teach l1is quarterback to get all his signals from the bench. It also destroys initiative. The coach teaches his players to be able to adjust themselves to new positions and to do it quickly. by developing.: initiative which in turn develops co- operation and all successful teams arc successful because of co-operation. efficiency, etc. The Notre Dame football team for the past season has been an outstanding object lesson of just such virtues. The "Four Horsemen" were the best example of teamwork of the season. Everyone co-op- erated and obeyed the rules and was in his place at the right time so that the plays went across. Athletics also develops a good school morale and helps in the discipline of the school. Through athletics boys find opportunity to work off 'their' extra "steam" or energy, which is so characteristic of youth. 1 There are still a few persons who look upon athletics as an evil. But have those people ever stopped to think where some boys would spend their .extra time and energy if it were not for athletics. A boy or anyone in training has to keep himself in trim and follow strict rules which help to keep energetic young people straight. Clark W. Hetherington, a reliable authority upon this subject says that he has yet to find the boy who has done poorer wo1'k at school because of athletics, also. "these sports improve our boys not only physically but also men- tally and morally." He has summed up the values in this way: 1 Class work is better. 2 The health of the school children is im- proved. 3 A wholesome school spir't is developed. 4 There is less trouble about discipline. owing to the clos- er relationship and better understanding: between the pu- pils and teachers. ' Athletics are an educational system in themselves. ev- cry game is an examination and shows the progress of the athlete during the season. - ', All of these principles and morals have been accom- plished and can be realized wherever the right kind of men are at the head of athletics andfllet us strive for the benefits and ideals of such athletic. contests in :the future.

FERRIS HODGE "Nick", although not as large as Hossie, was always there turning the end runs in and gathering in the passes in fine shape. He was always breaking up plays when he got the opportunity. ALAN MORNINGSTAR , "Shorty" was a very fast man. I-Ie made a good gen- eral for the team, playing his last and best game against Hudson. He will he missed next year. DON BRINK lion was always down digging for all he was worth and fighting till the end. He always did his best to open a hole when the play was coming his way. MYRLE FERGUSON "All County Guard" "Ma" as he is sometimes called was one of the best linemen we had. He was in every play that he could by any chance get into and he always stopped them. He was also very good at making a hole for quarterback sneaks or liue hueks. - FOSTER IVI-IS "Pass" was always full of the fighting spirit and when they went through him they had to be over or they didn't get through. . EVERETT ELWOOD Everett is one of our husky farmer boys. He never said much during a game but he did it.

Although she didn't play the earlier games. she still had that spirit and pep all the time and it is said that the reason why her op- ponents never made many points was because she treated 'em rough at the start and that seemed to "get their goat." FRANCES LAROWE lVhen the opponents were ready to start to play us, they wondered where our side center was, VVe1l. they soon found out: all over the floor fighting to get that hall. and she always got it. - LURENA JOHNSTON lt was a remarkable jump center who eould get the best of Lorena. Keep up the good work and help Morenci to win the tournament neXt Year. GIQAVIG MMJASKEY Grace was always ready to put forth her best efforts when called upon to relieve one of the guards. Her good work went far toward the teanrs sur-cess. HELEN Kl11EFER Helen was our all around player. She played any po- sition on the team when called upon and she was always yelling when o11 the sidelines. KATHRYN KEPNER Although Kathryn didn't play in all of the games, she showed the possibilities of an excellent guard or jump- center in those in which she did play. It all comes by expe- rience. keep up the good work. Help Morenci to win the championship next year. . RXVTH 1'onT1cn hllastusf' a sub-anything. was always giving her best whenever she was playing in the game at any position. She can sit on the sidelines and talk the opponents out of several baskets and probably the whole gameg a rather valuable sub. Huh? ELIZABETH THOMPSUN "Lizzy," although she sprained her ankle in the last few minutes of the first game at Lyons, her guarding Was an outstanding feature. The injury kept her out of the line-up the rest of the season and her playing was surely missed. "4'AI.IF0liNIA 'HERE WE COME" ' "BUT WE GOT RIGHT BACK WHERE WE STARTED FROM." . Last fall two of our boys thought they would "Gowest, young man, go west !" They started in an old Ford racer. They came back the same way. After one night away from home they decided that they had better not go west. They did not like the "hard and eruel World." Home they came and industriously set to work. We wonder when these hold adventurers will start out again. rx. N. and ax. ID. EXPLORERS B n eninr Glass aging The Senior class play. "Seventeen," was presented in the Stair Auditorium on the evening of May 20, 1925, be- fore an audience that filled the house, All the parts were ably enacted and showed much study and careful training. From the heginning the play hedr the close attention of all present. Financially it was a splendid success. Great credit is to be given Miss Smith and Mr. Heise, whose care- ful instruction and direction contributed very largely to the sua-4-esst'uI presentation of the play.

V I w 1 W ri 1 I I ' . A 1 Tillie 'gasket 'gliiall flange ln Basketball just as in Football, coach Hesrick had a hard task confronting him, that of building up a team out of totally inexperienced players. For a month or more at the beginning of the season Schoonover took no part in play or practice, being still laid up with a strained knee. But in spite of all handicaps we feel that the boys have no reason to be ashamed of themselves. for they won just half of the games played. Taking it all in all we probably had an ordinary High School team, which we believe, under the circumstances, is all that could be desired. DONALD SCHOONOVER After Schoonover came bac-k into the game he formed the keystone of our offense and was responsible for most of the scores. His injury handicapped him still, but never- theless he frequently displayed all his old ability at dub- bling. pivoting. shifting and shooting. BRUCE SIIJERS Bruce. at center, had a hard position to fill and he worked hard to give a good account of himself. Through- out the season he showed a consistent improvement and we feel that his election to the eaptainey for next year is a well merited honor. NVALTER HILL Judging by the development shown this year Walter promises to become a valuable member of next year's squad. Whenever told to replace a man on the floor he went with a willingness and determination that is to be highly com- mended. , FlfllililS HODGE Q For hard. earnest practice and effort the prize proba- bly belongs to Ferris. Whenever the hall was open he could be found up there shooting baskets, running around the floor. and talking basketball. In addition to the regular hours of practice he could often be found up there on Sat- urdays and perhaps on Sundays. who knows? Indeed at times it was evenneeessary to drive him home in order to get some rest. WAYNE GRANGER Mr. Hesrick's ability to select the right man for the right position was shown when he placed Wayne at guard instead of at center. Probably no player or any team that opposed us this year could surpass him in getting up and picking the ball off the back board. This, coupled with his scoring ability helped greatly in the season's record. CORTLAND FOSTER Cort proved a good partner for Wayne, although he is short. Nevertheless because of his stocky physique he justified his schoolmates' confidence in his ability to keep the opponents from' scoring. 'Only occasionally did he al- low anybody to slip around between him and the basket. WALDO EMERSON ' Waldo was another player who improved steadily throughout the season and we feel sorry that he will not be- allowed to participate in basketball after the first se- mester next year, because with this year's experience he would no doubt give a good account of himself. DON BRINK By his season's record Don proved himself a good man to replace either of the regular guards. I-Ie was always willing to do his share and we predict a good season for him next year. - BASEBALL ,f. , 1 1 f 1 X' mm?

Kinda funny. They didnt F' I seem to noe me and I was well knoen in 159 my own neighborehoud and was considered IX 2.55 the smartest won in the communitie. Well I went up stares and they surelly took no- tice of me, everybudy looked at me and kept looking so I just walked backe and fourth several times so they would no me when they seen me again. I went into a place where it said otfus on the front dore. My but the books were stacked high. There was a man at the desk with long pantz on and wore a pretty real necktie which was neetly tied ill a boe. He greeted me and from the first beginning I felt right at home. He asked me if I wanted to enroll and I said no that I brought my lunch with me and informed him that I had plenty to spare if he wanted to share it with me. He had the nerve to ask me my name, I thot every- body knew my name funny thing as long as I been in the comunity. Ile askt me what eourse I was going to take and I informed him that I knew how to Play goluf. At this he looked kinda funny at me and sent me to a room where a monstrous tall man presided over thenieetingsp Afterward I found out his name was Twiss. I-Ie delighted in draw- ing funny looking squares and eireulsi on the hoard. Well I got through fine the fournoone and went down town'and bot a whole staek of books they toled me to get. I didnt like most of them beeause there wasnt any purty pic-tchers in them. ,In the afternoon I went into a 1'oom where there was the tiniest woman I dont know if she belonged there or not but anyhow she staid there. I asket one young lad who she was and he said she was the mueie teaehur. who- ever she may be. Everything was just as quiet when all at onct a bell started to wring and all of the kids just hopped up and run. I wasnt afrad so I just staid in my chair. Then that mnsek teaehur came bac-k and tole me to go to class. I thot it a funny idea but I went for the eurioesitiey of it. First I went into a room where they had the funniest boxes and kids were behind them trying to punch little buttons down but they wouldnt stay no matter how hard they tryed. And then a girl with light hair came and tole me that this was the eommurshual room and that I had gotten in the rong pew. One kid tole me 'she was a bright girl and that she was at the hed of the depart- ment. I went into annuther room and guest at it and got in the rite room at last. Seems funny there was a guy in the class he stood up in front and askt questions. Guess he didnt noe muteh because we told him just lots of things. But guess he took lots of things for granted. Funny how little some pepnl noe. Isnt it? I was getting iuturested when a bell wrang again this time they sit still but when the bell appled agane they all hopped up and beet it out. I was getting so by this time I eould run just as fast as the next one in fact I beat them out onee. It was sort of a trac-k meat like they have when they have selubratuns in a small town. I went to a cup- ple uther roomes douring the day and then they all made a mad ruseh and got there hats on and raeed down the stares. About everybudy 'went out but the fellows that were there to find out sumpthin. Guess they didnt noe the meetings were over and were waiting for the refrush- mints. But for the first day in sueh an ac-kwireum I got along purty good dont you think? V. G. Y C D 5 fn L. YHYYW T 1 .I , V P K I ' N . w 1 4 N i ng X k J P i I E I , K I J M7 i '- I S 4.
