It was a parody on the story of Pocahontus and John Smith. Jack, as "Captain Target", fell in love with M. P. H. S., Alma Horr. The Indian, Orville Moxley, captured "Captain Target" and brought him before "Chief Facultyn, George Waugh. The "Chief" or- dered the Indian to behead "Captain Target", but just as the axe was about to fall, M. P. H. S. rushed in and, throwing herself at her father's feet, pleaded for "Captain Targets" life. After much deep thought, "Chief Faculty" released the prisoner and "Captain Target' was a free man. The Junior Stunt THE class of '24 was very proud of its Junior Stunt. This stunt was put on to raise money for the Junior-Senior Banquet and was given ckuring the Junior year. The class was given one week to pre- pare it and during that time, great excitement reigned. The Junior stunt was in the form of a circus. The main per- formance was a play put on by a few members of the class. Then too, there was a pantomine presented by other members. These were given in the Assembly Room, while downstairs were the many sideshows. In the Gymnasium was a veritable three ring circus. Clouwns, acrobats, parachute-jumpers, high divers, and even Rueben and Rachel were rf? presentedl. The people who attended the circus declared that it was the "best ever."

Now we are through with that great disadvantage and have 'shown that our class above all classes is the best and will be thus in the years to come. Many times, we have met on great battlefields with our teachers. We have wished at times that there was a final resting place for those books that have here given to so many, grief and isorrow. These years have been alto- gether very hard and toilsome. But, in a larger sense, we have enjoyed it, we have loved it, and we wish We could live our high school days again. Those brave men living and dead, who struggled here as we have, could not appreciate them more than 'We do. The World will little note, nor long remember what we do or say here, but we can never forget what has happened.. It is more for us, the Seniors, rather than the underclassmen, to learn more this year than ever before, for we may never return. It is rather for us to dedicate our great tasks to the remaining classes in high school and in these tasks, to which we gave our last full measure of devotion, we take increased interest, and hope that they may be ae- complished better, than ever before, in the future years, and We here highly resolve that these years have not been lived in vaing that this class of nineteen hundred twenty-four shall progress on to greatness, and this High School of the students, by the students, and for the stud- ents shall not perish from Mt. Pleasant. Class Will By MIRIAM SIBERTS and FLORENCE SCHUERMAN,'24 E, the Senior Class of 1924, of the High School of Mtf.

Junior Class History By RUTH SPRY N the fall of 1921, the Junior Class entered the Junior High School as fresh- men. It was a class of more than one hundred members. Our freshman year was an uneventful one, but it gave much promise of the years to come. As Sophomores' we soon acquainted ourselves with the nerw surround- ings at the Senior High building. Our members began at once to take a pro- minent part in musical, athletic, and social organizations. We enjoyed our sophomore year very much, and looked forward with anticipation to our junior year. A few there iwere who fell at the wayside, and the lure of California has called away some of us, but still we are the same old Junior class. This year we are showing are true Worth. The work of the Junior boys in football helped to win for us many victories. In basketball they are doing their best, and the whole class stands loyally by them and the other members of the team. The girls' basketball team, also, has worked hard and played lwell. The Junior representatives in the declamatory contest made a good showing, two of them taking first place in the dramatic humorous sections. We also took a prominent part in the musical and Dramatic organizations of the High School. A body of the schoolls "most patriotic" members went on a "strike" on the afternoon of Armistice Day. They celebrated by parading the streets and later by having a wiener roast in the grove. About two months from that time they celebrated again by taking the semester examinations. Thus far has the class of '25 progressed on its way to the traditional dignity and hard study of the senior class. Let each member do his part to make the class of '25 the best that ever graduated from Mount Pleasant High School. I .

What we have lacked in numbers, we have made up for in enthusiasm, for ours was the de- termination to make the very 'best of our high school days. Even as Fresh- men, 'we were well represented in school activities, having won second place in the Declamatory Contest and twice winning a prize of four dollars for pre- senting the best yells at the Tabernacle. Neither has our social life been entirely neglected. Our Hrst efforts resulted in a Valentine party and a little later, after an epidemic of spring fever, we found ourselves planning a picnic to be held at Oakland Mills. Now, in the school year of 1923-24, we have taken on a new dignity, since we play the role of Sophomores. We had to endure the usual embar- assments attendant upon the entrance to Senior High, but in a short time the class-rooms kept their right locations, instead of jumping from one side of the building to the other, and we felt' quite at ease amidg our new sur- roundings. Our present activities include representation in the high school band, orchestra, declamatory work, glee clubs, and the operetta, "Patricia". Our girls' baskeball team rwon glory by defeating the Juniors, and although the Seniors captured the honors, we feel justly proud of such a splendid team. A number of our boys have shown their ability in athletics, five have won their numerals during the football season, and others made a name for them- selves and for the class in basketball. This ends the history of our Freshman and Sophomore years and We hope that all expectations wil be fulfilled for making this, our class, the best to graduate from M. P. H.

And as he marches down the main He loceks on all with mild disdain, For he has reached the goal he sought And in his mind is but one thought, The Freshmen. On eighth grade brats and friends erstwhile, He looks with condescending smile As on he walks with stidened joints He proudly to this banner points, The Freshmen. And tho' his grades are not the best This lad whom Lady Luck has blessed, What matters if his grades are lean To him who bears this emblem green, The Freshmen. And tho' pride goeth ere a fall He scorns advice from one and all "0 idle swains go get thee hence!" Remarks this youth who represents The Freshmen. Here's to this enterprising group Wh'o've passed the whooping cough and croup May fortune smile upon them, too, This brand new class of verdant hue, The Freshmen. :zQym,w,,g - maoeazmweaznwomzwomxmsowu ' nvoeaauc4L93i ATHLETICS X, ,H ff' 5 V' X pl Ax -- b f if ffl? , :ax 4 ' XX X- N' 1' ' L1 .g . 9 S ffm fbi , N' ,f A Q? iggwx X 5 X ,ba K vi .

Under his guidance the boys were soon brought into one of the most effi- cient football aggregations in this part of the state as the scores for the season well testify. The foot- ball season for'1923-24 will be most happily remem- bered by the stud-ents and friends of the Mt. Pleas- ant, High, for which Coach Landis can be given due credit. O iibuwwamxmwomwwzwmxwmzwmxwwzwmmwmxwwa - Irvoeazlmso-unnvoeax:'4L93' Captain Caris, known as "Ketsy", proved a valuable left half-back. He seldom tailed to gain and never failed his tackle. He came to his own in the Wintleld game, and his long gains were a delight to football fans. "Hard", the heavy man of the team. was a most aggressive tackler. He proved an immovable obstacle when our goal line was endangered and was especially strong in opening holes. Thorson, who played full-back, was a good interference runner and a deadly tackler, showing the char- acteristic Barney grit. His line plung- ing could always be depended lupon. "Pete", our quarter-back, ran the team with coolness and precision, us- ing his plays to the best possible ad- vantage. He was a sure receiver of punts and made many thrilling re- turns. Q C l C I U I I 1 I I I .rvounmaoeaalrtwi ,fa 4- 9 Q A 0 A 0 I A I 1 e I f 1 1 1 I . "Sam", Captain-elect, started the season with practically no experience but with an abundance of bone and brawn and a fighting spirit that was hard to beat. He held the position of guard. Mt. Pleasant High expects wonderful things from Sam next year. Greenup was a hard hitting back. His vicious tackles stopped many end runs, and he was especially good in picking the oval out of the air and taking it down the field. "Tom", the .center, was always fast and accurate. His defensive Work was of the best. He played consis- tent football all through the season. Conner, although outweighed in al- most every game, through his plucky fight was a dependable player. l 3 3 Q A s i 3 s G 3 3 s s 3 "Aleck" worked in unison with Payne and made use of every .ounce of strength. When he tackled them they stopped. Charles went through the game giving his best to gain a victory for old M. P. H. S. and never giving up until the last whistle. He deserves a great deal of praise for his fighting spirit shown throughout the season. "Sleuth" was a sterling end whose ability in catching forward passes was only excelled by his Work on de- fense. He kept his opponent guess- ing. Mark should be at his bestbnext year. ' "Walt" was our utility man. Back- fleld or line-it was all the same bo Walt. On catching passes, running interference, breaking up plays he was equally good. momnmwlu .Q 1 P?13FIWN3IKW2NNWIKmiWNWlKQ6NKTGWKQWNKQiKW?WMWWMWWNWNKWW1KUWWkQ9 The Football Season , OOTBALL practice began the first afternoon of school with eleven ex- perienced men out for practice. In spite of the short time allowed for practice, Mt. Pleasant was able to defeat Wayland by a score of 13-0. The boys showed that they were not beginners and even though the team was underweight they were not to be easy marks for the heavy opponents later in the season. The condition of the field in the Ottumwa game prevented Mt. Pleas- ant boys from displaying their particular brand of football, which resulted in a score of 13-0, Ottumwa's favor. October 6th, Burlington was defeated at Mt. Pleasant in a whirl-wind game. Again outweighed, but due to fight and speed we carried the pigskin over twice allowing Burlington one score only. The New London game was a track meet for Mt. Pleasant. The third quarter found the second team smashing their lines for gains. The final score was 26-0. We niet our second and last defeat at the hands of Fairfield. In the first half we held our heavier opponents for downs and the count stood 0-0. However the hard drive of the opponents backed by Weight began to tell and we were forced to allow three scores in the last half. After two weeks of rest the Mt. Pleasant gridders went to Winfield. With grim determination and fight we lifted our score of 0-9 in the first half, to 19-9 by gains made by Captain Caris. The season closed by a glorious victory over our strong rival Fort Madison. Each man was at his best and the fwork of the team in both de- fense and offense was the strongest of the season. The final score was 14-7. We take this opportunity to show our appreciation of those who were not members of the team but who by their iunfailing efforts made it possible for M. P. H. S. to win. Loyally and faithfully they worked each afternoon and much credit is due them for the success of the season. Mt. Pleasant loses seven men by graduation. We are proud of their final record of 85 points against their opponents 55, and of the splendid pro- gress in ability which the team made during the season. EZQM ORVAL THORSON Capt. Center "Barney", our captain, played the center position throughout the season. He always played his best, and could be depended upon to get his share of goals, and to hold his man down. He has played his fourth year, and M. P. H. S. will lose a good man in Barney. PAIGE PAYNE Guard "Hard" played guard, and was al- ways in the game. Payne was known for his fightg his ability to get the ball: for the effort he exerted to win a victory. By Payne's graduation, Mt. Pleasant loses one of the most consis- tent guards she has had for several years. HERBERT BYERS Guard "Pete' 'occupied the position of guard. He played consistent ball, and was always sure of his quoto of bas- kets. His greatest value to the team was his speed. In the I. W. C. tour- nament he made the all tournament team. RAYMOND CARIS Forward "Ketsy" did not play all the year, which was to our disadvantage. When he was playing he could hold his man down, and get a few baskets in exchange. He was an excellent team worker. ALDEN BRUHN Forward "Bill", as forward, did justice to his position. A fast and shifty player, he never failed to get his quoto of baskets during the game. IIVJOFFIKVNSSHKUUOGSI gigs-'llcvaowu . . .menu . xcvaocvu HZQram:+ea:rmwur'ns:4au: - ' naaoeazmsoannaaoenz MARK CARNAHAN Forward "Sleuth" came in dfuring the latter part of the season. Quick to learn, he soon became a reliable team work- er and an accurate basket-shooter. DALE CARIS Forward "Goslin", who came from the Freshman class, played good basket- ball. He was a good shot and a. cap- b'le player. Because of his quick re- sponse to coaching-Caris will be val- uable to next year's team. WALTER METCALF Substitute "Walt", although not a letter man, proved himself one of the best sports on the squad. Always out for prac- tice, and ever ready to make any sac- rifice for the good of the team. "Walt" did splendid service and will be missed. JOHN EWART Substitute John, like, "Walt", substituted in several games. He was dependable at practice, developed rapidly, and will prove a strong man for the com- ing season. - Q .

At the sub-district tournament at Fairfield our team won three games and second place, losing the final game to Fairfield. The schools played and the scores for each game follows: Mt. Pleasant 22 Batavia 11 Mt. Pleasant 28 Packvvood 4 Mt. Pleasant 30 Keosauqua 14 Fairfield 20 Mt. Pleasant 12 The final game with Fairfield was one of the best of the season and the score at the close of the first half stood 8 to 6 in favor of Mti Pleasant. lt was a game long to be remembered and though we lost to our ancient rival We were not chagrined for the boys played a type of basketball that classed them with the best teams in this part of the state. The boys also made a good showing in the Wesleyan tournament as the following scores will indicateg Mt. Pleasant 17 Mediapolis 11 Mt. Pleasant 32 Moravia 14 Wilton Junction 12 Mt-. Pleasant 8 The Wilton Junction team was one of the best teams at the tourna- ment a.nd it was the opinion of many good judges that it ,was the best team at the tournament. The fact that the boys made a good showing against this team is another indication of their superior playing. :zen lst Row-Logan, Smith, Mills CCa1pt.J, Poultcr. 2nd Row-Miss Aitken CCozicliJ, Ellwurcls, llielqo.

Avoid it as you would a pestilenceg it destroys men's reason, and plagues their souls. As an example of the insid- 'uofus work of this thing, let me present myself and my brother-in-law, both ruinedt men, and ruined by this thing whereof I warn you. We were in High School together, he and I, and thinking to choose the lesser of two evils, we enrolled ourselves in the Physics department. Many a time since have I bitterly cursed the day I started on this venture. For a few days all went well, save that I was intensely interested in it. As the days passed, my interest deepened, and the thing took an 'unshakable grip upon my whole being, so that I had. no peace of mind. All my days were spent in working Physics problems. Not those assigned by our worthy instructor, which were mere child's play as compared to the problems which shook me day and night. I could not sleep, eat, walk, talk, or think. As soon as I arose, my troubles began. As I ate my breakfast, my thoughts were occupied as to how much heat had been expended, in boiling my egg, and if my coffee was not a perfect solution. I knew the reason why. If I walked to school, I reckoned the momentum of the passing autos or if I took a street car, I figured the amount of electricity used in carrying me nine blocks. As I ascended the school steps, I computed my horse-power. My brother-inrlaw spent much of his time with me, as we understood each other perfectly. He also was seized by this strange power. He also reckoned the cause and effect of each incident in our daily life. If in our modest Ford we came to a hill, we must know all about its slope, and we fig+ured how the car ran. By continual practice, we became quite proficient in our line, but sometimes We disagreed, and in that case, We sat up at night wasting reams of paper 'until we found our error. In this way we lost much sleep, and took on a vacant expression, and as we talked of nothing but Physics, our friends forsook us, and it was rumored about town that we were crazy. We were avoided by the honest folk about the place, and our life was most unhappy so that we determined to leave. We secured a position for the two of us as light house keepers, where we carried out our research work with none to interfere. Thus we live, two old broken men, our whole lives wasted, ruined by that obnoxious science against which I warn you once more,-Physics. lGGWRvNMKvNa!KvNMlvWlKdNalKDwlRvk1lvkJRdEKWfMlvw2Kvk2h5klmNQI w0 THE 'CAR GE T Nlargotls First Football Game By IVIARTPIA CRANE,'25 T was a brilliant October afternoon. The air was crisp and a blue autumn haze h'ung low over the huge stadiumi. Bands played. Yell leaders went through their usual contortions before a howling mob of excite- ment-mad students. It was a big day in the University town. Old rivals were to lock horns on the gridiron once more. It was also a great day in Margot's life. Had not she, a shy freshman, captured the handsomest and most popular senior on the campus and was she not attending her first football game? Great waves of cheers were rolling over the vast crowd as the two entered the stadium.

You can't keep 'em down. Hurrah --whoopie! Hang on to the pig-skin-! What is it? Why, I'm telling you. This is a scientiiic explanation.

They're over, Margot, they're over, old girl!" The girl looked at him in dismay. As the exultant crowd surged through the gates, the boy was fairly brimming over with enthusiasm. "A fine game, what? And you understand it all, don't you? Some grand little explainer, I am!" So excited was he that he failed to notice the expression which flick- ered over the gir1's face. - "Yes, I understand it thoroughly and I'm sure that I would compre- hend any play that they would make. You don't know how much I appre- ciate your efforts. This has been one exciting afternoon. But you haven't told me yet whether they use a bat or whether they toss it through a hoop. They couldn't pick it up from the ground with so many out there this afternoon, so I didn't know which they were trying to do. "Dumbell!" under his breath. "What did you say about a bell? I didnit see any bell." "Oh, I said that you were the belle of the afternoonf, and smiling down at her, he ducked her hand through his arm and they rushed to join the fast-forming parade which was to celebrate the victory. 6ylKQEQBNaIRvblKd6hl KdblRd4h2ldk!kWORdW2lvk!m!NDMN!MkN2Ml9klFQ9 X , JFY5 I .1 2 Xsw Eff M uf l xl :'N1 .uf .K N u ' 14 Q : 1 X J Q. , M Y f 4 Q, l QQ I 4 47- .
