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
ourselves comfortably into some ism of faith or belief and
quietly surrender to the peacefnlness of undisturbed
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. '

L' N ' years ago when you went to school for the
.Ji Z9 I first time? Do you remember the thrill?
'f , DX V Wasn't that a grand and glorious feeling?
lf fx' Then after eight years of work you found
yourself a Freshman. Can you blame a
Freshman for feeling important? No. You
cannot. 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

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
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. Do not be afraid of work,
and when you are old and gray you eau look back and think

ue 'I' WAS .lune 1925, A Senior lad had been
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
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
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.

group of knowledge seekers .gathered in

days had passed before we were called to-

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

redskins talking of happy hunting trips
into the land of knowledge. 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
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-

After mum-h discussion as to whether the volume of
The Senior of 1925 would ,be published, we are proud to
say their we can show this hook. 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-
Therefore we hope that this book will please everyone

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
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

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.

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

hotel. 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

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

advice. Now the fire monster is in all his glory. He sends
mocking flames out the windows: he roars in his fury, and

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

It is dawn, the turmoil is over. Only a few people are

Sophomore Class Story
F course the house is haunted. Doesn't every-
body say it is?" 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
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
"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
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.

And that's that.
'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-
The Student Council had charge of all arrangements
and so remained after the party to clean up the popcorn,
broken apples and pumpkins.

Second Freslnnan-"Two seats."
Luff as she sat knitting on her tiny porch.
Her little home was perhaps the most pic-
turesque in Somerset Valley. 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-
"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
"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
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
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
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

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-
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-- '
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. -

The Annual Lenawee County Tram-lc Meet was held at
Adrian Fair Grounds May 22. 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
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
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

Q-K5-M79 Hlvl Girls' League is the infant among organ-
izations in M. H. S. 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
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
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
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

Tll1'0llL'll the untiring efforts of Mrs. Nelson another
splendid musical endeavor was introduced into M. H. S.,
when a High School Orchestra was formed. Under her di-
rection the organization was soon engaged in harmonious
enterprise and the work of producing pleasing sounds met
with much success.
Wayne Russell of SChesterfield consented to play in
the orchestra, which was a great help. We appreciate
Wayne's work along with that of our other talented mem-
As most of the ten members are not graduating this
year we will enjoy this orchestra for a few years yet to
come. We wish them every success and' hope their Work
will always receive its due credit.
Ulhe Girls' Elec 'fllluh
With the same spirit which prompts every organiza-
tion at Morenci to do its best, the Glee Club has endeavor-
ed to develop finer technique. better quality, and all around
artistic singing than has ever been done before. 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.

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. This promoted the in-
terest of all members. By studying the different parts all
the students are involved, being a great help to them, and
may lead to some talented singers.

THLE'1'lt.'S are becoming more and lll1.1'l' a
it ?-RXNEBQJ national factor, not entirely for amuse-
? ment or physical betterment, but as an
P educational factor in our schools. 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
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.

"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.
, "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.
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.
"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. -
"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 is one of our husky farmer boys. He never
said much during a game but he did it. Elwood, Fergu-
son and Ives made a good strong center of the line.
f- VICTOR KEEFER
"Vic" played so many places-,we will have to give him
credit for an all around man. He would pass, buck the
line and play tackle well as the average man, although
he played on the line most of the time. A

: "Red", although she never played forward before, really
contributed her share of the points in every game. It took
a' real guard to stop her, but she never was stopped and
her consistent playing will be greatly missed next year.
"Sue" our speedy forward. was always there doing
her stuff. She was a good basket shooter and when the
going was hardest. she always managed to get her share of
the baskets. . A
'Falk about a guard, and it's "Snnb." 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."
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. -
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.
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 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.
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. .

She can sit on the sidelines and talk the opponents out of

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

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.
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. 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.
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-

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.
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.
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.
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. -

FTER muteh inkwiring I reeht the building

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
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-
But for the first day in sueh an ac-kwireum I got along
purty good dont you think? V. G.
