Hn fIDemoriam IX RI ' : lEW ' IXG the history of the high school for the past oar. The Pierian does not forget the absence of one who was fur many years a member of the Faculty. Miss Bertha Hawkins was called away by death November the third, nine- teen Inniilred twenty. It is ini|iMssible, in a few words, to tell of her worth and v..rl as a teacher in our high school. Perhaps it is enough to say here that few teachers have been better prepared for their duties. In the University of Indiana of which she was a graduate, she was a brilliant student. Her native ability was far above the average, and to this native ability she added a culture which only travel can give. She therefore brought to the school and to her department a wealth of experience which enabled her to place her work in the local schools on a plane with that of any in the state. Perhaps the fundamental qualification of any teacher is a knowledge of the subject, and no one who was familiar with her work or knew Miss Hawkins could doubt that she pos- sessed this qualification. Students sought her classes, not only for this reason but because she possessed a rare person- ality which made her work attractive. She was fully aware of her responsibility in dealing with young people and was fully able to meet it. She was kind, sympathetic, gentle and good humored. What more could one ask in a teacher? As a member of the faculty, her co-workers will agree that Miss Hawkins did her full duty in the general work of the school and did it willingly and capably. Any work outside of her department for the good of the school received her hearty co-operation. Upon her return from the University of Chicago in the summer of 1919. it was thought best by her physician that she obtain leave of absence for a while, as her health did not warrant her in taking up her duties immediately. She never returned and after a lingering illness of a little more than a year she was called away. In the very full- ness of her scholarship and usefulness she was taken away ; and again the age-long question is asked. Why? Surely it was a loss to the school as well as to her friends and family, " But who shall so forecast the years. . nd find in loss a gain to match? Or reach a hand through time and catch. The far off interest of tears? " This much we know, that life and death are among the most natural events in the history of the world. The one follows the other with equal and certain step. The leaves fall and the flowers wither, but we know very well that these common annual occurrences are but preparatory and necessarv steps to a more abundant life farther on for the trees and flowers. This is life ' s law, and whoever believes that death must follow life, must also believe that life must follow death and that it will be far richer and more abundant. " There is no death. The stars go down. To rise upon some other shore. And bright in heaven ' s jewelled crown. They shine for ever-more. " Miss Hawkins was a lovely girl. In her more mature years she w as a lovely woman, quiet, dignified and thoughtful. She was a faithful friend, a capable and efficient in- structor. Her influence was always positively good. These are the priceless, meas- ureless memories she has left. What can anyone leave that could be of more value? , J. F.

H. S. ! HE Senior Annual, representing, as it does, the spirit of tlie class and reflecting the atmosphere of the school, portrays nterests of the school that will he most fondly recalled later years: athletics, plays, debates and the bits of fun that can be called to memory by snap or joke. Naturally, the sponsor of the class, assuming responsibility for his proteges, will enjoy those memories with the class. While at times irksome perhaps, the job is not a thankless one ; in fact, it is a pleasant one and I consider it a dis- tinct privilege and honor to have acted as sponsor to this class of 1921. .May their future ambitions be marked by achievement as have those of the past four years, and may the succeeding classes stand as loyally to their class and the school.

A RECORD breaking squad of seventy-five answered the call ot the school at the first basketball tryout. Of course most of the material was inexperienced, but their willingness to learn and work helped inexpressibly. In about a week the eliminations started until the squad was reduced to twenty-five men. This number Coach Null kept in train- ing for the remainder of the season. In view of the fact that only two men on the squad were veterans, the season was fairly successful. .-Mthough M. H. S. did win the majority of the games, it was partially due to the fact that so much of our material was inexperienced and our opponents were some of the strongest teams in the state. Anyone will admit, however, that the Red and White put up a plucky scrap regardless of defeat or victory. The district tournament was undoubtedly the most successful part of the season. Contrary to expectations Richmond had no difficulty in winning the district meet. The team had learned much from its contact with stronger teams. •v.- " JV- ' i ai Jgg lJ !MlM41iiyJlMiM q THE PIERIAN M. H. S. Standing — Phillips. Mulligan. Sauter. Stidham. Lovin.

There were three : the TXT historians, the commercial de- partment team, and the vocational team. The various teams have played games both among themselves and with outsiders. This is a very good plan as it helps put men in training for inter-scholastic basketball, and fosters a friendlv si)irit of rivalry.

Each girl was given a chance to show her ability at various positions before the picking of the varsity teams, which came several weeks before the termination of the season. The Juniors boast the championshi]) this year, but before establishing that claim they had to use all their pep to prove it. Although Miss Kaufifman, the physical director of the girls, jnits them through rigid training during the season, they are taking a great deal of interest in this phase of competitive athletics and are showing the boys that girls can train just as rigidly and hard as they. Spaulding ' s Official Basketball Rules of 1921 were used in all the games, arid out of the fifty-four girls who signed up, only a few dropped out. A physical examination and doctor ' s certificate were necessary before any girl was eligible. Practice games were held from Thanksgiving until Christmas. Then after Christmas, a tournament with practice before each game began which lasted until spring vacation. Teams were chosen to rep- resent the Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, and captains and assistant captains were elected. The First Team, which was picked b}- the captains and Miss Kauffman, was composed of three Juniors and three Seniors, namely; Juanita Detmer, forward Alice Eby, forward Margaret Smith, center Agatha Phelps, center ( 2nd ) India Stanford, guard Zelma Slade, guard It was very hard for the captains and Miss KauiTman to choose this team. Juanita Detmer and Alice Eby played forwards in the Junior team this year and formed a fast pair, both having a good eye for the basket, and exhibiting splendid team work. Margaret Smith, also a member of the Junior team, was chosen for center because of her ability to get the ball and get the tip-ofif. Agatha Phelps, of the Senior team, was given the place as second center because of her speed and " go-get-it " ability. Zelma Slade and India Stanford, both guards of the Senior team, were given the places of guards as they dis])layed remarkable abilitv in that line, and be- cause of their team work.

( )f all the sports which .Morton Higli School attempts, track is the most ditificult. Not only is it a difficult branch to develop into a winning venture, but the interest in track is not the same as that in basketball and football. This year the material available was composed of entirely new men who took quite a while for rounding into shape. Nevertheless, the Red and White was represented by a squad of promising material, which should prove to be invaluable in the seasons to come. Dual meets were scheduled with New Castle. Muncie. and Anderson, and the team also entered the district meet at ConnersvilJe on May 14. It is the highest aim of the school authorities to develop and encour- age athletes to take more interest in track and make it as interesting a sport as the other popular athletics in the school. 1921 THE PIERIAN 1 t— 1 1 I I M 1 USIC i i - " „. t 1 1 i . 1 i ■ 1 ■ 1 1 I S : [ 1 I I 1 ■ I ' : i : 1 i 1 i Page fifty-seven rM WfigwTii ' TriTrTi,i?Tt;iTn i 1921 THE PIERIAN pCT[roM7?ICTlCTl LVJILVJ|iA |ty;iL ORCHESTRA liy«MIMliy.

The orchestra and the .Xpollo chorus gave a cantata, " The Tale of the r.ell " by Lester in the May l- ' estival. It is the story of the molding of the Liberty ISel! in I ' rance and of its tolling for I ' rance. Lngland. and finally for .America. The comic o])era " Pinafore " by Gilbert and Sullivan is probably the biggest thing presented by music pupils this year. This was given the latter part of March by the -Apollo chorus and orchestra. The stage setting and decorations were furnished by the members of the wood- working and art departments : the costuming was in the charge of the sewing department; and the music, of Mr. Maddy. It was given two nights in order to accommodate the crowds and was cnnsidered a de- cided success by all. The band, consisting of about twenty-five members, is an organi- zation that rendered much assistance at the football and basketball games with their " peppy " music.

H. S. THE " Register. " the present high school paper, is as interesting and newsy as any other that is published in the United States. It has grown steadily to its present high journalistic standard from g the old " Argus " and " Cynosure, " which were ]iublished monthly and in mag- p azine form. These papers were edited by a staff chosen from the student body, whereas the " Register ' s " personnel is composed of the students in the journal- ism class. The first edition of the " Register " appeared September 23, 1916. For two years it was under the supervision of Benjamin Null who is now head of the English department at Fort Wayne, Indiana. .-Kfter the departure of Mr. Xull, Miss Pansy Newby took charge of the journalism class. .After one year, how- ever, she left our school, and the paper was placed in charge of H. F. Ross. As Mr. Ross has had experience in the newspaper business and is instructor in printing, the " Register " staff is now more closelv correlated with the {)rinting classes. The " Register " is published weekly and is eagerly read Ijy the majority of M. H. S. students. It influences not only the student body but also the par- ents who read the " Register " with enthusiasm and interest. The lively staff of the paper has been able to obtain a " scoop " on so much news that oftentimes the citv papers reprint e.xcerjjts from the " Register.

The speakers are terse and to the point and the speeches are always upon subjects which will be of practical value to the average student. In some cases this is varied by having student speakers. The annual play, " By Hooks and By Crooks, " was pertinent and well given. The club has two social functions a year, the opening and closing banquets. iTS lgW 1g l ' g ' ! ! pTi?1 1J l lg THE PIERIAN i M. H. S.

In April the club adopted a I ' Vench war orphan. and gave a candy sale for its support. The Koyrrac Club is composed exclusively of Senior girls who have gained membership through the recommendation of their teachers. After recommendation they are voted on by the club at the end of the semester. The members this year have taken great interest in keeping up the activities of the club and have .set a mark which it is to be hoped next year ' s club will try to emulate.

Each member is required to walk at least one mile a week outside the city limits, the weather permitting. If a Pedestrian fails to live up to this rule she is fined five cents. This source of income helps in the various enterprises of the organization. Ac- count is kept of the amount of territory covered by each individual and delinquents are fined weekly. At the end of the year silver merit pins are awarded to those who have walked one hundred miles outside the city limits ; a gold- plated pin to those who have walked two hundred, and to those who have traversed three hundred miles, a solid gold one.

This number, while more truly representative than the former body of twice its size, is not so unwieldy and lends itself more readily to an active part in school af- fairs. The new plan provides that members at large be elected from each class and that a term of office shall be for one year instead of a semester. Among the more important measures appro ed by the council this year were the purchase of a complete set of American Encyclopedias for the library, the sending of most of the members of the second team to the State I ' .asketball Tournament, and the purchase of a new moving picture machine.

The society was founded with the purpose of giving the members a broader and more discerning view of amateur theatricals. Synopses of plays, monologues and interpretation of plays by meinbers make up the monthly programs. Due to the briefness of the time for preparation and rendering of the programs the plays for this year have been generally light and amusing with occasionally a touch of pathos. The original membership was limited to twenty-five, but as the demand became greater it was decided to admit all who cared to join. Those who were willing and competent to take parts in the plays were included as ac- tive members, and those who for inability or lack of time were unable to take active part were received as honorary members. The club now boasts an active membership of about twenty-five and an honorary membership of one hundred and nine. Only active members appear in the picture.

The play, although simple and amusing, lequires a very considerable amount of dramatic ability. The action takes place in the beauty parlor of Mad- ame Princeton, a very imposing quack. This part was very well taken by Wilma Sudhoff who, in spite of her apparent shrewishness, made a very charming principal. Susan, her assistant, a young but keen girl who read- ily saw through the schemes of her mistress, was realistically portrayed by Elizabeth Price. Reba Alorgan as Mrs. Compton, a heavyweight who wished to reduce, gave a very amusing impersonation of an inquisitive fat woman. Miss Terwilliger, the young lady who wanted a complexion, was extremely well rendered by Martha Eggemeyer. Marguerite Cox, who took the part of Miss Dickie Bird who wanted her hair dyed, did very well indeed. Alice Lemon took the part of Miss James, the reporter, who brought consternation into the beauty parlors by quietly informing the seekers after beauty that they were in for a write-up. The part of this quiet, efficient young lady was excellently played. Page seventy-nine THE PIERIAN M. H.

The play is a comedy in one act represent- ing the events of a day in the flower shop of Slovsky, a Russian Jew. As Slovsky, the proprietor of the shop, Norman Hoefi er made a very graph- ical presentation of a grasping, avaricious old Jew. Martha Eggemeyer gave an effective and natural interpretation of Maud, the emotional ofifice girl. Robert Hawekotte gave a capital impersonation of the office boy. Edwin Ross and Flora Bishop laughably presented the parts of an old en- gaged couple whose romance had " gone to seed. " Although the costuming and make-ups were very effective, the success of the play was made pos- sible only by the brilliant acting of the well-trained cast. iiraiytil?faiffi?lf? ffi THE PIERIAN M.

The play was made possible only by the co- operation of student body, faculty and interested friends. Although all the ])rincipals earned the right to the title, there were several who were particularly excellent. The i)art of Josephine, mindful of her station, haughty and reserved, but at last overcome by love ' s power, and o])enly avowing her feelings for Rackstraw, was admirably performed by Rhea Crandall. Xorman HoetYer, as Dick Deadeye, gave an excellent inter])retation of that cral)l)e(l and caustic old sea dog. William Romey, as the dignified captain of the Pinafore, conducted himself with a bearing of authority even when subjected to insult by the egotistical admiral, which part was excellently rendered by Paul Quigg. Other parts no less well done were Cousin Hebe, one of the cousins of the admiral and madly in love with him, Mary Jones; demure and beautiful little liuttercup. Wilma SudhofF : Ralph Rackstraw, the lovelorn suitor for the hand of Josephine, Keifer Calkins. The chorus, tastefully costumed, formed an ettective and harmonious background for the ])rincipa!s. ■ m ffai,7Y,iyrtfe ffi?y, ? ' ;;w {i Page eighty-two Page eighty-three THE PIERIAN M. H. S.

The programs, al- though they do not have as great a variety, are no whit less interesting than those of the senior school. The majority of the programs consisted of speeches, plays, readings, musical selections, and moving pictures, chiefly of great educational value. On special occasions the chapels were combined. On the whole the division has given very satisfactory results since it gratifies the widely divergent tastes of the junior and senior schools much more than the com- bined chapels were able to do. iiffri t? fifffflTyriii? iiiB " iffif I THE PIERIAN M.

The plav was one of the best given this year. May 13 — The Pedestrian Club play. " Madame Princeton ' s Tem- l)le of lieauty, " was given successfully. The ])lay is an amusing comedy in one act. The climax of the year came when the Seniors were jjlaced upon the stage to the wonder and awe of the underclassmen as an example of the effect of learning. The school owes a great deal of credit to the chapel committee, headed 1 - Mr. Mctlranahan. for the excellent manner in which the ' have arranged the programs for the vear.
