D. No doubt, as we ourselves realize, you will find mistakes-yes, lots of them-but we hope you will overlook them and see the book and its con- tents as we intend it to be seen. We have in no way intended to offend any one, but rather to picture each student as he or she is seen by the student body and the faculty. We trust that to each friend, alumnus, teacher and fellow student, every page may fulfill the object for which it is intended-that of reflecting the characteristics of our good old M. H. S.

It is a very poor ideal that one ever realizes, and it is a great misfortune for one to overtake his ideal, for, when he does, his progress stops. I was once made an honorary member of a class and asked to suggest a class motto. "I suggested 'Ever-Green' and some of the class did not like it. They did not like to admit that they ever had been green, not to speak of always being green. But it is a good class motto because the period of greenness is the period of growth. When we cease to be green and are entirely ripe, we are ready for decay. Ilike to think of life as a continual progress toward higher and better things-as a continual unfolding. There is no better des- cription of a really noble life than that given in Holy Writ, where Solomon speaks of the path of the just as 'like the shining light that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.'

THAT SENIOR LIFE The Senior's life is not the joke That some may think it isg A life of work, a life of toil, A life of worry, is his. The Freshies think 'twould be a joke A Senior's path to run, And so they sit and idly wish, "If I were only one." The Soph: "Oh, what a joke That Senior life must be, If I were only way up there, The Sophs and Fresh I'd never see." The Junior is so near at handg He does not realize The toil and strife of the Senior's life That seems to him a prize. But we, the Senior hen-peeked bunch, Have found the story true, That when you are a Senior lad You've got a lot to do. SENIOR DEFINITION OF AN ORATOR An Orator is a person who, having nothing to say says it with orotund, circumambuloquacious, iiamboyant overflowing, superexuberant redundancy. A GREAT SPEECH lBY A GIFTED SENIOR Four score and seven years ago Cit seems that longj our fathers brought us to this school, which was conceived in knowledge and dedicated to the proposition that all kids should work. We are now engaged in a great struggle, testing whether we, or any other dummies, may long endure the final examina- tions. We are met in a great assembly room for that struggle. We have come to dedicate a portion of it as a final Cnot examb resting place for those who here gave their best thots that knowledge might live. It is altogether in accordance with Mr. Weaver's rules that we should do this. But in a larger sense we dedicate-we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this room. The brave students, passed and not passed, who strug- gled here have consecrated it far beyond our poor power to add or subtract Carithmeticl. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but its people can never for- get that they flunked here. It is rather for us, the living, to be dedicated to the unfinished work which they who flunked here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the exams. remaining before us, that these N. Ps. shall not have failed in vain. We here highly resolve that this school, under Mr. Weaver, shall have a new birth of knowledge, that the exams. of the studies, by the teachers, and for the students shall not perish from this High. WHAT is THE WORLD? The Senior:- "The world is but a ball To all- High, Foot, Basket or Base- To chaseg Billiard or golf, codiish or puff, Marked, Saltatory, smooth or rough: Foul, fair or slow, or high or low, Hot grounder, or just plain old snow- It's a ball-that's all.

BY A JUNIOR There was a young man from the west, Who loved a young lady with zest. So hard did he press her To make her say "Yes, Sir," That he broke three cigars in his vest. CTragical, aint it?D GRAND MANUSCRIPT This most elaborate manuscript is published at the request of the Junior Class, who so thoroughly wrecked their minds to make it a successC?J. Come, pensive Senior, devout and pure, Brilliant, accomplished and demureg All in a robe of knowledge clad, Prepared to enlighten the world, so sad. With self esteem and steady stride, About to launch upon the tide, Come, but keep thy level head For fear it burst and kill thee dead. Ambition, towering toward the skies, Should shine forth from your sparkling eyes, Holding the world within your sway Until the "bubble" break, someday. CWith apologies to Miltonj BIG REWARD!! To anyone who will show us a school the size of M. H. S., or with the attendance of M. H. S., that has the athletic ability that we have. Merely glance at the Athletic Section of this book and notice the Football score, or the Track records. A SOPH PLAYING CHALK-MARK Jenkins went to the cemetery To see what he could see. The poor fellow went without a fear, But soon he was ready to liee. There were eight in his bunch Who were ready for fung So planned a game of chalk-mark, And to Grove Hill they all did run. The other side got oif the track, And were turned toward the Fair Grounds. Our side could not turn back, T So we entertained James with horrible sounds. ' Ed found an old tin can, That he hit with a piece of stone. Someone whispered, "There's a many" James yelled, "Is he alone?" His fears were very much multiplied, As the man's shadow was seen. Jenks said after he dried his tears, "Let's all play we're on the track team." Poor, poor boy! for we declined to go, We kept him there awhileg Till he had company in Beatrice, Who was frightened in good old style. So we took pity on those two Sophomores, And led them to joy out of that place: And allowed them to go to Lazio's, Where they could see no ghastly face. CWritten and kindly donated by A.

We've just got thru "green Algae," Glory go to the skyg For if we hadn't, hully gee! I know I'd surely die. We study every kind of flower From the violet to the rose. Clf I had the guy that wrote that book, I'd punch his big, flat nosej. It talks of seeds and seedlings, Just as if we didn't know That those are only kinds of things That people expect to grow. Bacteria are such awful things, They downright get my goat. I've got a broom for dusting Them things from off my coat. They make people terrible sick, Isn't it too bad. Botany, it says "Kill 'em quick," Gee, but I am glad. And, too, in Botany there's awful names, I never can remember. I'd just like to stack 'emgup And give them to the sender. And if you ever have to read This awful, terrible book, You may a good physician need, Perhaps like Doctor Cook. 5.

J. Thomas of Erie, Illinois, entered the High School of this city Septem- ber 6, 1915, as a member of the Freshman Class. She attended regularly until the first of February, when she was taken with a severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism, which later resulted in her death. Miss Thomas was born on a farm near Erie on August 1, 1901, and attended the Kingsbury Public School, from which she gradu- ated before her entrance to M. H. S. She was ever willing to help others, and possessed a nature which made her a dear friend of all who knew her. COMIC EDITORIAL FOR FRESHIES Yes, sir, we are the Freshies. Don'1 you think we look it? You see, we just "blew in" from the eighth grade down below, and from the country. For some reason or other all the folks in the Sopho- more, Junior and Senior Classes seem to have the laugh on us. And yet, that Senior bunch must think a lot of us or they would not let us have our pictures and names in this fine book of theirs. I guess they call it an "annual," or something like that. The diction- ary says that that is something that has to be planted every year or it won't grow. We all wanted to have our class photo mounted on a green background and our names printed in green ink, for I guess those are our colors. At least, everyone says we are green. But they wouldn't let us. No, they said our photos showed our colors without green ink. As long as they pay for the picture I suppose we'll have to let them do as they wish, but it hurts our feelings awfully. - This high school is a queer place. They have divided the kids all up in four classes, and we seem to be the most attractive and cause the most excitement of any of them. Mother always did tell me that someday people would talk of rne. I know she is proud of me now. Those Sophomores are the queerest kids I ever saw. They all got the idea of wearing sweaters with two stripes around the waist. Gee, they seem to think they can do with us just what they please. They would walk all over us if they could, but we stand up for our rights, alright, alright, There is one bunch in here they call the Juniors, and they are surely the limit. They go chasing around here with these white cardboards for collars, and go strutting up and down the aisle-it re- minds me of a rooster hunting for a scrap. And then the Seniors. They don't seem to have much to say to us. Iguess they are trying to see what they know, and if they have enough brains to get out of this place. They are pretty good friends of the faculty, but they don't have much to do with us, but when they do, they always do something mean. Once they even put shoe blacking all over our faces and made us march on Main street while the band played. We don't know what to do here to get along, but I guess if we get on the good side of the teachers we can get along alright. At least that's what we are trying to do, but it's an awful job, for they seemfto be against us all. ,M X I4 tl v t 3" " N, ik 1" n -, , Q ' X f A2514 71 X f X ,f , fy Vik f' ' W K W x W!

Rick d0esn't go to an athletic meet and bring home a medal or two. Mr. Mouck can stand by the front door and not say, "Clean your feet." Freshies can go down stairs and not stop and play with 3rd graders. Florence Gallentine can resi-st the temptation to get into Miss Barnes' handbag. Mr. Mouck cleans the blackboard. Freshies cease to Hunk. Cyril Hammer, Lloyd Mathew, Alfred Briggs, George Lawton and Arthur Cleverstone do not leave the room twice a day. Miss Aitken doesn't grab everybody's notes. Mr. Torrence forgets to write that letter, going west. Sterling beats Morrison in Athletics. Bayard cuts his hair. Freshies become large enough and have enough ambition to enter Athletics. The Senior boys give the Senior girls the party they are waiting for. Stickie Burr forgets to go up to Jackson street. Miss Fredeen forgets to ball out John Flikkema. The Freshmen can go to the basement without playing with the shower bath. We get our gymnasium. The girls finish that tennis court. Rick gets enough credits to graduate. Earl Weaver stops going to Clinton. Jim Jenkins forgets to try and bluff you. M. H. S. looses her athletic championship. The Senior class has an orderly class meeting without the supervis- ion of W. E. W. Sophs realize there are others in the world besides them. Dorothy Knox forgets to go to a dance. Theo Blodgett forgets to say something. Juniors quit bragging. The Editor and Business Manager get back the brains and common sense they have lost in trying to make the Morrisonian a suc- cess. THAT SENIOR PARTY The Seniors had a party Upon one Tuesday night, And if we tell the truth ' It surely was a fright. The girls, they hid themselves Away up north of town, Right near old Grove Hill cemetery, A place of great renown. At 7:30 the boys cut loose, These Senior girls to find, And to find them in two hours, Each had to work his mind. And work they did, With all their might. And hunt they did, It seemed all night. But when at last The time drew nigh, They found the girls, And heaved a sigh. They were, by chance, Not quite too late, For it was then Nine twenty-eight. Of course the girls, With that awful air, Declared the boys Did not play fair. But the boys all know They did their deed, And now they're waiting For the feed. THAT SENIOR CONTEST The Seniors had a contest, And what a joyous time: 'Twas like the movie shows, Worth many times a dime. The Senior girls, they took a hike, And somewhere about the town they hid. Now the boys were left to find these girls: And did they? Well, I guess they did! They hunted high, and hunted low, And almost everywhereg But when at last they neared Grove Hill, Why, sure enough the girls were there. Alas, the time was nearly up, And of course there was a chewg The girls all claimed the time was up- Why, sure, they thot they knew. The boys were very obstinate And stubborn in their wayg They, too, knew they had won, And from that point they would not sway And now the question is, Who shall the banquet serve? For each do think the others do This honorable right deserve. So let them now decide their fate As to who shall entertain: And when this glorious feast is o'er, Let who will complain. 4 O G i DID YOU EVER HEAR THESE? Oh, fudge" . I ..

BARKER ACCOMPANIST, Miss GERTRUDE BARTLEIT Very few schools the size of ours have as much musical ability as M. H. S. There are only about one hundred and fifty-five in the High School, and out of this number about one hundred and thirty are in the High School chorus of mixed voices. At Christmas time it was found to be an easy matter to select a large chorus of male voices, and we are informed by the instructor that it would have been quite as easy a task to secure a girls' chorus. At present all the work in music is carried on in the assembly room between 2:00 and 2:30 every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thurs- day. For every two years' work in chorus one credit is given. We feel that we are very fortunate in obtaining such a line in- structor as we now have. Miss Barker seems to take with all the students with her jolly way, and is a very able and talented instruc- tor. Her teaching is of the latest type of music, as she attends the American Institute of Normal Methods during her vacation. Our accompanist, Miss Bartlett, is also well skilled and ably fitted for her place. She is well liked by the pupils, and her work is very satisfactory to all. We can't all smoke ten-cent cigars, Or drive a limousine: But we can all collect the bands, And smell the gasoline.

He was the first knocker. Finally he got so many to believe that the anvil was really sweeter than the harp, the Almighty lost patience, and when it was discovered that Satan had started a factory to manufacture hammers, his doom was sealed. So the word was passed along, the Saints tucked their robes into their belts, made a rush for Satan, and it was all over. Satan was cast out into utter darkness. A poet says he fell for three weeks. Therefore we have the following moral, "Don't be a knocker." Miss Barker Cat phone in ofHceJ-"Hello, Hattie, this is me." IN HISTORY Teacher-Locate Hawaii.

QNote-The editors feel as though it were a great privilege to publish such an original, appealing theme as the follow- ing. It was the first theme written by a member of the Class of '16 in the endeavor to keep this country prepared. It was only by underhandedness the article was obtained, as it was formerly a relic in the library.J Have any of you ever had a great pain of some sort? Of course you have, and you have a distinct remembrance of the suffering you went through. Now, multiply that pain by ten and couple it with the thot that death is a certainty, and you will have the feeling of the soldier who, while fighting for a foolish nation, has been shot with part of a huge shell thru the stomach and intestines. Picture yourself in a bloody trench, surrounded by dying men in the greatest possible agony, and knowing that at any moment you may share their suffering. But why, you ask, should we think of such things when we belong to a rich and powerful country? Haven't we a large enough navy to protect ourselves until men are trained to pro- tect this free country from being overrun by ruthless foreign- ers? Well, perhaps. Of one thing I am sure, this land will never fall into the hands of a conqueror, because we should fight if we had to, but-why should we ever be attacked by a foreign nation? We are rich, we waste lots of money which could go to supporting a large army and navy, and by so doing we would eliminate the sufferings and privations of a long and disastrous war. Stop! Look! Listen! Would not you rather spend un- needed money now for protection than be wounded or killed. Do we want to be in the position France, England, Germany and Russia are now. We do not need the militarism of Ger- many, merely a large, efficient navy which could easily protect our coast. NAVY? A BOB PARTY Listen, my children, and a story you'll hear, Of a Senior party, which happened hereg' 'Twas in December, on a moonlight night, On the eighteenth, if I recollect rightg The Seniors went out in bobs three, Laughing and giggling with their hearts free: The night somewhat warm, and the snow nearly gone, The roads became muddy as they rode along. Hence, the Seniors, disappointed, turned back to go home, When at the school house they ceased to roamg A merry time they had when the eats were passed around Oyster stew, and crackers by the pound. Soon the party broke up, and, departing in bobs three, Laughed and giggled, for they had obtained the bobs free. , . ,rw , W S MR. L. E. MOUCK The man to whom we, the publishers of the Morrisonian, our fellow classmates, our fellow schoolmates, our teachers, and all those in connec- tion with the High School, are indebted for well-kept rooms and innumer- able courtesies. He has filled the position of Janitor of our school build- ing for the last thirty-two years, and has become the friend of all those who have had the least chance to become acquainted with him. The editors of this book, in behalf of the Senior Class of 1916, wish to extend to Mr. Mouck their sincere thanks for the numerous things he has so willingly done to help them during their career in M. H. S. PROPHECY OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1916 Setting-Morrison, Illinois. Time-1930 Charles Burr was editor of one of the big New York dailies. His first experience in that line was that of Business Manager of the "MORRISONIAN" back in 1916. Charles had become very note- worthy, and for this reason his visit to his little home town was of great importance. As Charles alighted from the Chinese Express, the first one he met was his old classmate, Harold Smith. "Hi, Smith!" yelled Charles, "how's the town? You know it has been many years since I've been here. What has happened? What are you doing?" "Oh, nothing much-just running the town-I'm Mayor," said Smith. As they walked down the main street, Charles saw a big sign on the top of a ten-story building: "Latest French Lids knocked down to 81.98" When Charles inquired who owned it, Harold answered, "Why that belongs to Gladys Raridon. She is now the greatest French milliner in Mt. Pleasant township. Every year she takes a trip to Paris CIll.D and gets the latest fads. Oh, she's wonderful. My wife always gets her hats there." "Well, that's a good beginning. Now tell me about the rest of the class of good old 1916" "There are only a few of us left," replied Mayor Smith, "as most of them have pulled out to larger cities. There's Louise Matznick, for instance. Of course you knew she married as soon as she grad- uated? Well, her husband was called to New York to accept a big position at Tiffany's. They are pretty well off now, and I've heard that they don't scrap any more." "And there is Henry Hamilton. too. You remember his wonder- ful voice? Miss Barker was always shouting, 'Pianissimo, Henry, pleasel' Well, he is now in Chicago and is an instructor of music in the Deaf and Dumb Institution. Yes, and Fritz Rastede is giving dancing lessons in a St. Vitus hospital in Philadelphia." "The other day I received the shock of my life. Someone knocked at my back door, and upon opening it there stood Helen Olds. She did not recognize me, thank goodness! She was a Salva- tion Army leader in full array. She is so taken up with her work that she wouldn't recognize any of her old classmates if she did see them." Editor Burr could do no more than to stand spellbound and listen. "You know Bob Collins? Well, he has a line position now. He is traveling for Ben West. That man went sort of crazy over pink and pea green ties, so Ben gave him a job peddling neckwearf' "What became of Alice Rowland?" inquired our old friend Stickie. "Oh, she married, too. Now she is demonstrating face powder at the Boyd, Curtis 8: Co. drug store. And, speaking of domestics, Lyle Ritchie has a steady job at Johnston's Garage. Remember that famous Buick he bought?" "Do I? Icould never forget it. Where's my old friend, Bump Crump?" "That's a long, sad story. One day Bump was playing marbles out in the road, and along came some bold, bad men and grabbed him. They were circus men, so now poor Bump is traveling with Barnum SL Bailey, under the name of 'The Midget from Borneof Bayard Hollinshead didn't fare very well, either. Poor man, he is superintendent of a little country Sunday School out in Colorado." "But Specks Weaver made quite a name for himself. He is Frohman's only rival. He first won public notice when he appeared in the diflicult role of 'Old Bill Salt' in the 'Nautical Nut.' " Oh, yes, I did hear about him. And, by the way, I see Sara Mitchell is our Irish Ambassadoressf' "She certainly was some politician," replied Smith. "She was one of our Democratic Senators in Civics, if I remember correctly. But prepare yourself for the shock. Last year, when I was traveling in the Orient, I ran into Hiddleson, and what do you think he has?" "Not a talking streak?" NNOIU As Well then, nothing else will surprise me." "This will. He has a Harem." Now, Smith, if you want me to listen to you, you must tell the truth. How is Martha Burns?" "Oh, she is running all over the country giving these flesh re- duction lessons. Last week she gave Ruth Meakins one, and you should see Alene Trautwein. She looks like a skeleton, after two weeks' treatment." u "But poor John Flikkema. He's out of his mind now. He got into the habit of carrying candy down to M. H. S. in 1916, and never got over it. He still makes trips down there every noon with a sack of chocolates for the youngsters. I always knew his generosity would lead him to destruction." "Well, that certainly is sad. How's Gertrude Bartlett?" "Oh, she is playing ragtime in Woolworth's, and Birney Ritchie is turning the pages for her, and once in awhile he favors the public with 'Morrison Loyalty.' And Clara Hanson is teaching at M. H. S. When we were there she had taken Geometry II three years, well, she decided to make it a life study." "Olga Dovicke is one of the world's greatest contralto singers. Last time I heard her she was singing at the Lyric Theatre for the benefit of the new CPD Gym. Our Dutch friend, Rick, has quit posing as twins, as he got into many diiliculties, and now he is wrestling. He won over Frank Gotch last night." Well, Smith, you have told me how the bunch fared, and they fared pretty well, but you never mentioned Walter Knox." "No, I wasn't going to either. You know he always was a way- ward fellow. He nearly drove Miss Barnes crazy, and he and Mr. Weaver had a misunderstanding when we were Freshies. Walter had an awful habit, and, as I expected, it led him to the 'pen.' He carved his name on the new brick pavement, so I arrested him and had him sent to Joliet. Poor Knox." S500!! REWARD!! S500!! To the man who can persuade Bayard Hollinshead to cut his hair. We fear it is becoming wild and wooly and endangering his classmates. cslgnedp FACULTY. -,214-f OUR M. H. S. LIBRARY It is a great pleasure for us to put before the public this list of books, whichour fellow schoolmates have so ably composed. They are now well kept in the Library of M. H. S., and are carefully dusted each and every day by our Janitor, Mr. Mouck. It will no doubt surprise you to find that so many of our High School Students have taken the habit, writing. Well, you see, it's just this way. There is always some sort of fad among the students. All of a sudden they started the habit of writing Cnotesj. The editorial board soon noticed that a fine oppor- tunity was before them, and, as a result you have before you the good work the students did. We trust that you can tell the nature of the book by the title. ' 4 Concentration ,,,,,,,.,,,. ,,,,,,,,, , , . Bayard Hollinshead "What Would a Gentleman Do?

May 13 ATHLETICS When we come to High School Athletics, we feel that someone from M. H. S. should be given a chance to speak. The Morrison High School has had Athletics for a number of years now, and each year our standing has been raised. In the Fall the majority of the time is spent in playing Football, the King of Sports. There seems to be nothing more exciting or in- teresting to a high school student than to watch that team, the team of which they boast, force its way down the field, and then be re- pulsed, and even driven back, by opponents. And then to see a player get away with the ball, go thru a fake play, or a line smash, and at last go over the enemy's line. Morrison has just such a time every Fall when eleven men, each with a desire to do his share in winning a victory for old Red and Black, go onto that field with their teeth set and a determination to win. After the Football season is over, everybody becomes interested in Basketball. Here we also have exciting moments, when the ball is taken back and forth, up and down the floor, and finally a player shoots a star basket. But Basketball doesn't seem to last as long as Football, or Track, which comes next. Morrison has an exceptionally fine place for track work. The Fair Association is always willing to let the teams use the race track at the Fair Grounds, which make an excellent grounds. Perhaps, without a doubt, Track is the finest all-around sport for a high school, for most any man with any athletic ability can find a place in the track work, if not in a race, in either the jumps or weights. Last of all comes the Baseball. The early publication of the Annual restrains us from giving the Baseball reports this year, but if they are as good as usual we can easily judge what they will be. Tennis has also become a great factor in M. H. S. This year the girls are preparing a court, and expect to participate in the great game. The girls have carried on indoor athletic work the entire year, from which they have secured much benefit. R ToU.CH- Down. CD14 1,-. .i 5512, fi ' yi 59? 1 BQ!!- fy .

H. SJ 1 -Y iw-- FOOTBALL We could say much about the Football team of 1915 and the record they have established for M. H. S. But we merely wish to bring to the minds of interested persons points worth remembering. Perhaps one of the most interesting facts to remember is that the team played real football the whole season, permitting only two teams to score on them, and winning everygame. In connection with this,it is well to remember that, with the exception of the first game with Prophetstown, all the games were played with larger schools. We all realize that during the season certain hardships came about, but they happen in all schools. In any of the schools certain misunderstandings arise. In all the games of the season, the team has gone upon the field of battle with a determination to win, and this has led to victories which have set a new High School record. If the question were asked, "Are you proud of the record?", the answer would be unani- mously, "Yes" It is for this reason the students of the High School were so willing to assist in the purchase of the large, red sweaters. These sweaters are girdled with a black band and have service stripes around the arm, showing the number of years each one has played. The Girls' Athletic Association gave a splendid banquet in honor of the record. It was a good thing it was at the end of the season, for the feed was tremendous. So here's to the team that set the new record for the High School, and may teachers and pupils never forget it. BASKETBALL, 1915 AND 1916 Due to the great interest in Football, the Basketball season was late in starting. However, by the middle of December, Manager Tor- rence had things going in such a way that the team was ready for a successful season. On January 7 the team met and defeated the Militia, 19 to 14. This was a surprise to officials, as the Militia team was composed of some former High School players. On January 14 the team went to Prophetstown and defeated that team, 23 to 22. The Prophetstown aggregation was in the lead until the last ten minutes of play, when Morrison simply carried them off their feet. On February 21 Amboy was defeated 35 to 14. At this part of the season the team was in its prime. They played the Morrison Independents and were defeated only 21 to 11 by that fast team. The following Friday they beat the Clinton Seconds, 35 to 4. The last game of the season was played at Amboy, our hardest game. Hurd, our star player, refused to go for some unknown reason, and the game was lost. Without him the team could not work in its regular form. Among the other players worthy of mention are Smith at center, Lyle Ritchie at forward, and B. Ritchie and Rick at guard. It was due to Iine guarding by these two that some fast teams were de- feated.

When Henry gets to school when due: When Louise forgets to smile at you: When Collins wears a necktie blue, When Walter K. decides it wrong to argue: When Flikkie gets a shine or twog When Carl W. forgets to change his hueg When Junior class meetings are gentle as dewg When Martha gets one fellow' instead of two: When Bump forgets to follow Hazel to her pew, When Torrence forgets to grin at you, Then you will hear the faculty holler, "Cheer, boys, do!" ON TRACK AND FIELD This year M. H. S. is doing more in track and field work than she has ever done before. The season started early in April, and on April 7 was held the annual Inter-class Meet. In this, many of the events were won by new men, and although it was bitterly cold, some records were made. Little more attention was paid to track events until about the last of April or the first of May, when the manager of the team received an entry blank from Cornell College, requesting the presence of a team at the Interscholastic at Mount Vernon, Iowa, May 6, 1915. Different members of the team became interested, and a number finally made up their minds to attend. On May 5 sixteen of our boys left for Cornell, some as contestants, and some merely as support. At Cornell the boys were given fine treatment. In the morning, immediately after the preliminaries, there was an exciting ball game between Cornell College and Iowa City, resulting in a score of 3 to 1 in favor of Cornell. After the luncheon at the gym, the boys pre- pared for the final meet. At 5:30 they attended the banquet given by the "C" Club, and in the evening enjoyed the play, "Milestones" But the results of the meet are what interest us most. Rick proved himself the best of our representatives by bringing home two medals, one first and one second. In the half-mile he finished sec- ond by a fine sprint at the last. In the running broad jump he tied with Bentley of Polo for first place, but when the tie was jumped off he beat his opponent by almost a foot, making a new record for him- self of 19 feet GM inches. The medal for first place was of gold, and that for second of silver, both very fine medals. Edwin Boyd fea- tured well in the half-mile, but was unable to place, although he came in fourth. Burr did well in the running high jump, making a height of 5 feet 2 inches, while the winners of the event tied at 5 feet 4 inches. J. Boyd and Hollinshead did their best in the sprints, but were unable to qualify. Green, Austin and Cook were also entered in some of the hurdles and runs, but were unable to qualify. But if one consider the material with which Morrison had to compete, we can congratulate the boys on what they did do. On the following Wednesday, May 10, the Savanna team came to Morrison, and a dual meet took place. The result was favorable to Morrison by a score of 56 to 48. The day was not good in the least for a meet, as there was a strong north wind blowing continu- ously, which interferred with the jumping and running. Neverthe- less, the record for the pole vault was broken by Rick, who made a height of 9 feet 5 inches. Burr also broke the record for standing broad jump by a jump of 8 feet 8M inches. John Boyd won the 440-yard dash in 58 seconds, which broke the former record of the High School. There will probably be other meets this year, as one is now scheduled with Clinton for May 27, but the Annual goes to press too early to receive the reports. It is expected that more of the records will be broken.

The majority of these records have been broken since the Inter class meet in either the Interscholastic at Cornell or the Savanna M. H. S. dual meet. 1 BASE BALL Owing to the late start in Baseball in M. H. S. this year, the Annual goes to press too early to report any of the games. Never- theless, we are assured of a good team, for with Mr. Torrence as manager and Lyle Ritchie as Captain it is sure to go. RECORDS-FIELD AND TRACK The following are the records made in field and track in the last few years, as taken from the diary of an athlete.

Two nights each week, from November to April, were devoted to gymnasium work, consisting of Swedish Gymnastics and Volley Ball, Wands or Indian Clubs. Such physical exercise has proved both beneficial, after several hours of mental work, and enjoyable, as was manifested by the interest taken in it. Another new feature has been added to the work of the Associa- tion this Spring, that of making a tennis court. And in this the boys, with their brawn and siuewy arms, have been a great help to the girls. Next year some credit is to be given for work in the Physical Culture department, based on attendance and quality of the work. V' K Y 74- i .

ADVICE TO THE FRESHIES Be Careful what You Eat In these days of indigestion It is oftentimes a question As to what to eat and what to leave alone, For each microbe and bacillus Has a different way to kill us, And in time they always claim us for their own. There are germs of every kind In any food that you can find ' In the market or upon the bill of fare. Drinking water's just as risky As the so-called deadly whisky, And it's often a mistake to breathe the air. Some little bug is going to find you some day, Some little bug will creep behind you some day: Then he'll send for his bug friends And all your earthly trouble ends: Some little bug is going to find you some day. The inviting green cucumber Gets 'most everybody's number, While the green corn has a system of its own: Though a radish seems nutritious, Its behavior is quite vicious, And a doctor will be coming to your home. Eating lobster cooked or plain Is only flirting with ptomaine, While an oyster sometimes has a lot to say. But the clams we eat in chowder Make the angels chant the louder. For they know that we'll be with them right away. Take a slice of nice fried onion And your fit for Dr. Muniong Apple dumplings kill you quicker than a train. Chew a cheesy midnight "rabbit" And a grave you'll soon inhabit- Ah, to eat at all is such a foolish game. Eating huckleberry pie ls a pleasing way to die, While sauerkraut brings on softening of the brain. When you eat banana fritters Every undertaker titters, And the casket makers nearly go insane. Some little bug is going to find you some day, Some little bug will creep behind you someday: With a nervous little quiver He'll give cirrhosis of the liver: Some little bug is going to find you some day. When cold storage vaults I visit I can only say, what is it Makes poor mortals fill their systems with such stuff? Now for breakfast prunes are dandy If a stomach pump is handy, And your doctor can be found quite soon enough. Eat a plate of fine pig's knuckles And the headstone cutter chuckles, While the gravedigger makes a note upon his cuff. Eat that lovely red bologna And you'll wear a wooden kimono. As your relatives start scrapping 'bout your stuff. Some little bug is going to find you some day, Some little bug will creep behind you some day: Eating juicy sliced pineapple Makes the sexton dust the chapel: Some little bug is going to find you some day. All these crazy foods they mix Will fioat us 'cross the River Styx, Or they'll start us climbing up the milky wayg And the meats we eat in courses Means a hearse and two black horses, So before a meal some people always pray. Lucious grapes breed 'pendicitis, And the juice leads to gastritis, So there's only death to greet us either way: And fried liver's nice, but, mind you, Friends will soon ride slow behind you. And the papers then will have nice things to say. Some little bug is going to find you some day, Some little bug will creep behind you some day. Eat some sauce, they call it chili, On your breast they'll place a lily: Some little bug is going to find you some day.-Ex. A YEAR AGO CJunior Banquet 19153 The Board of Editors wish to express their sincere thanks for the use of the following toast, which was given at the Junior banquet, 1915, by our most respected mathematics teacher, Miss Mabel V. Williard, who is now teaching at Charleston, Ill. As we recollect our respective positions and social standing at that time, it seems queer, but we were there once, and did many things that would now seem odd. When I think of the Junior Class I am reminded at once of a recent visit to a music store. I was in quest of "Morrison Loyalty." Had you gone with me you would have found some titles and first lines which would have startled you, no doubt. "The Little Old Ford Rambled Right Along," to be sung with illustrated pictures by our friend "Hank" "Has Anyone Here Seen Henry?" "Too Much Ford," someone said. However, just enough to deliver its owner safe and sound tonight. Then, "There's Nothing to Do but Chat," to be put on soon by Sara Mitchell. She believes in it too, you know. There was a great headline which said, "Try this over on your piano." This is what we were to try: "Gladsome Gladys is Gathering Garlands for Glen, great garlands of glaring gladiolas she does gather, Glen gets a glance of .......,., " and there it stopped. I thot it such a pity, for that part was so euphonious. Another the publishers assured 'me had only been out a few weeks, and had sprung into popular favor at once: 'Tm the Guy that Put Olds in 0ldsm0bile," by Birney, and the answer was, "There's a Little Spark of Love Still Birney." Well, there are many ways of getting information, but this beats all. I didn't know before how musical our Junior Class was. "What d'ye say, you lost those Boots?" The author of this is unknown. He probably wrote it and then went to war. At any rate, we shall have one in war some day, for "Bump" Crump is re- ported to have sung upon request, "When I'm Big l'll be a Soldier." Have you ever heard that tenor solo so delicately rendered by Lyle Ritchie on the Edison? He will sing from morning until night-if you keep winding the machine-"Be my little baby bumble bee." But there was a sheet which you'll admit has an original title, "Along came George," introduced and pushed to success by Alice. Then, too, "The high cost of candy is making John broke," had charms for some. One said, "Play the following over three or four times exactly as written. You will then realize why this song is sweeping the country as no other has done for years. The melody will haunt you." This, being composed by a young lady of decided musical ability in a little town in Chio, was, "If they'd only leave poor Homer's ribs alone, I'm sure I'd wear a smile like Sunny Jim. It is cruelty to start to break the cc,,.,,,. and you'll have to imagine the rest or buy a copy to get the ending. Would you like to know the song they're all talking about? Full orchestration, for sale wherever music is sold. If your dealer can't supply you, send twenty-five cents to the publisher and get a copy of "When it's moonlight down at Matznick's, I want to see Carl." There was an old song rewritten by one of our residents, "I didn't raise my Sammy to be falling off his chair." Just the same, he did. Just a little ad in the upper corner of the back sheet called attention to the fact that a new ditty was being featured by Fred Rastede in Morrison, and proved to be successful. "To the Runyan's we must go to get a piece of cake" Cwas that true?J. They say that Harold Smith still sings in his sleep, "Take me out to the ball game." Does he mean Sterling or Fulton? "Fiddle up, fiddle up, on your violin", attracted Clara Hanson, for she came in the store while I was there and traded a bright, new dime for a copy. Oneiof our Juniors, Alfred Hiddleson, has had a new verse dedi- cated to him, and it promises to enter the race for popularity next season. "The lost chord"-I mean, "The lost vocal chord." Specks Weaver will propably put on a little sketch in the movies soon, entitled, "How many hearts have I broken today?" This is not a song without words, but one without an answer. Who knows? To Olga was written, "Just for a brown eyed girl," and Martha has sung, "When I walk, I always walk with Albert," which probably refers to Fenton. Iasked the dealer who wrote "Bawlin' for Jack,',' and he said he understood it was Gertrude Bartlett, but I told him that song would not last long, for when Jack goes, Jill will no doubt find a Freshman John. "Come, take a ride in my speeding machine," is getting more newspaper puffs than any other ten songs. That means it's a "hit," and we will appreciate it more, coming as it does from one who un- derstands how to speed a Cadillac, and directed at our own Vera. I finally found a song to the tune of "Morrison Loyalty," although the words were different. It read, "You're Loyal to Us, Garrison." When I found it, I decided to go, but before leaving asked the dealer what were his three best sellers. "First, and best," he told me, "was one composed by Bayard Hollinsheadf' "They always, always pick on me, They never, never let me beg I'm so lonesome, awfully sad, It's been a long time since l've been glad, But I know what I'll do, some sweet day. I'll go to Polo, and there I'll stay, And when I'm gone-just wait and see-A They'll get Charles Burr, and send him after me." The next in popularity was by Carl Meakins: "It was a long way to Sterling, It was a rough road to gog It's the longest way to Sterling, In Couris' machine-I know. Good-bye, all you fellows, Farewell, M. H. S. Therels a bad place between here and Sterling, And I struck it, I guessf, This was to have been featured on Mr. Fitzgerald's anxitaphone, but we didn't get the record in time. The third our dealer thot might possibly be: "When a boy named Knox, Knox, Knox, Spends the night with Sammy S., What do you suppose did happen? You will never guess. Well, I cannot tell you now, For that would be a shame: But Walter knows just how it goes Not to answer to some other name? This visit to the music store has encouraged me greatly. The Juniors are jumping right to the front in music, as in entertaining, and to them I would say: "You're not finished, just beginning, You'll be there in the winningg Your girls are few, but they are true, And your boys surely good fellows, too. Oh the year nineteen sixteen is for luck and succeeding: On red and black you'll not go back, So here's to all of you." THE JUNIOR'S DREAM When the night is slowly falling, And the busy day is done, And you're sitting in the twilight, Just you, the only one. You're feeling sad and lonely, And you have a little dream- You seem to be in forests, Resting near a rippling stream. The sun is shining brightly, The birds seem happy and gayg And then you sigh in wonder, "Oh, what a perfect day." The dream becomes much sweeter, Your heart leaps with a whirl, When on the bank of yonder stream You recognize a girl. Her dress is of a crystal white, With a sash of navy blue: And there you sit and wonder If she recognizes you. Then you speak to her so kindly, And she answers with a smile, Which seems to make you happy And think that life's worth while. It is only but a moment, And you are on your feet, Standing there and glaring At the beauty you should meet. You advance a little forward, And fall into the strearng And then awake in wonder- For it's only but a dream. n I A I Csecond Part, Sterling Football" fmusicalb ..,........ ,.......,.,.........,,, ,.,.,.. .

Trying to keep away the tears, Onward we marched, for four long years, Each year recovering some. When we were nearly done The Faculty did heave a sigh- What will we do when they say "Good bye?" CHORUS We .are leaving M. H. S. We'll miss this jest, CAufpassen Sie Johannbg And Irwin's best, COh, my consciencelg Dear Prof. Weaver, who always says "Come now, that'll be enoughf' Torrence must greet us with, "Is that a fact?" And Aitken dear, CAmo, Amos, Amotlg And from our dear Miss Barnes CClasses may passjg And from Miss Brown CEyes on your booklg Utley with this C0live, my affinitylg And to the Freshmen, Sophs and Juniors, too, Faculty, we bid adieu, For we're leaving M. H. S. Poor, lonesome Faculty, You have our sympathy, Tho we have troubles of our own, We hate to see you left alone. You can't run M. H. S. Without the help of this rness. We cheered each other while we were there- Now you've no hope, our place is bare. CHORUS A FRESHIE'S FIRST THEME "WALKING" Walking is a simple sport to learn: it consists mainly in planting one foot a short distance in front of the other one. Then the hind foot is picked up and carried forward past the other foot and put down, and then the remaining foot is brought forward in the same way. This seems complicated, but it is quite easy to do. It will be very hard to compel - And here the Editors feel it best to censor the rest of the theme, for fear of its impression on the incoming Freshies. FOUND IN THE GERMAN ROOM Tomorrow we will part, And it almost breaks my heart, For then we laugh no more, For the German class will be o'er. -German II Class of '15-'16 They've nothing on the Freshiesg E'en for the Sophies do we blush, To hear them call the Freshmen "Mush!" The Junior who frets at worldly strife Grows sallow, sour and thing Give us the Freshies, whose happy life Is one perpetual grin. Teacher Cin Agriculturel-"What can you say as to blinders on horses?" Alfred Hiddleson-"All driving horses should wear blinders, that they cannot see and follow the movements of the driver. Miss Brown-"Always eat the skin of the fruit, for it contains essentials that we all need." Fresh Cin back rowj-I pity the guy that likes pineapples. 'ff' ff wi nw 331: ""-5" QEEQ f?a s 'i-as!
