Each member of the staff has given his best efforts to make this Hoop-Pole the stellar edition, that it is. Too much credit can not be given to the Business Manager and her staff with whose financial aid we have been able to offer the many new features. To Miss Smith, whose untiring efforts have contributed so largely to the success, we give our most sincere thanks. Finally, we offer this Hoop-Pole to you readers as an example of the quality of work which has been done by the Senior Class of 1918. of English Depar Lillian Davis Oliver Seifert Lionel Allen Ray Hames Bertha Ashworth Lym I FuUinw Mary Ruminer Fred Thomas Dorothy Doerr S.

Is the class that is now graduating. CHORUS: You may say what you please. You may search land and seas. But you ' ll find we ' re the best in the shop. Now mark what we say. We ' ll be famous some day. Just you watch us go over the top. The time draweth nigh, we must soon say ,aood-bye, Friends and scenes dear, we now must be leaving; Wherever we go. We want you to know, We shall still strive and still be achieving. And how our class arose from lesser thinss, I sing. This record ol ' our former deeds is due Unto our class and the great world too. Great is the subject, also the praise. If you but appreciate our former school days. Twelve years ago upon a bright September day, We registered for education eager for the fray. Those tasks so great with which we then enga.ged. Threw our sensitive minds into a mighty rage. Soon we mastered Reading, Writing and Numbers. Which first had troubled us e ' en in our slumbers. The maid soon acquired the art to tell When all with the young lord was well. The lord with courage great and mighty deed, Soon .gained her praise — his well earned meed. Then finally the final upon wliich faint hopes were t CANTO II. We entered High from far and wide. Some here, some there, against the sturdy t Expecting all our troubles to be done.

But of this number there was not a host. CANTO V. And now at last the Pinnacle they reach; The high mark set before them — goal of each. With beating hearts triumphantly elate. They enter now the Senior High Estate. Theirs now the right to look about With condescending mein; and flout The lower classmen, much as they Were flouted at an earlier day. Theirs now the privilege to maintain. The standard set by others without stain. Such was their progress we shall see each name Some day inscribed within the Hall of Fame. —LYMAN DAVIS. WHERE THE RAIMJOW ENDS. There ' s a path in the Land of Memory, At the place where the rainbow ends. And to our school-days, past and gone, A winding way it wends. We follow the road; — through the veil of years We catch now a glance and a gleam Of happy years in high school spent. When Life was but play, — and a dream. At the end of the rainbow, so we ' re told, Is a wonderful pot of gold. For which explorers vainly searched. In myth and legend old. But those who follow the winding path. To the place where the rainbow ends. Will find instead of the fabled wealth.— The memory of old friends. — LOUISE ASH WORTH. PROPHECY ■■One more great invention to tlie credit of the famous class of ' 181 " A smile of triumph lighted the fine face of the speaker as he proudly regarded the machine on which he had been working. Making his way through the un- tidy room to the open window, he stood gazing down on the brilliant street of the great metropolis. •■Now whom shall I assemble tor the try-out? Let ' s see, there are several of our class in the city — Madeline Forthoffer, renowned mathematician, for one. Madeline succeeded in solving the great problem that has baffled the world for ages — the problem of squaring the circle. Men of all times have been driven mad by that seeming impossibility, and to think that a woman accom- plished it! ■ ' Then there is Bertha Ashworth, noted bacteriologist. Bertha, after years of scientific study and research, made the great discovery that Spring Fever is due to a germ, and is now spending all her time in the effort to find a specific for it. ■■Winfred AUyn also is within reach, and so is Henry Chambers. They surely are entitled to a seat of honor at the exhibition, since it was their won- derful inventions which first gave me the idea of mine. This little wireless pocket telephone, conceived and perfected by the great mind of Winfred Allyn, is one of the greatest contributions to the world ever known. And the won- derful contrivance of Henry Chambers whereby ships at sea are propelled by means of waves of the air, by operators on land many miles away. These mar- velous achievements of my friends gave me confidence in my own plan. ■ ' And now to assemble these geniuses. " Taking a small compact instru- ment CWinfred ' s convenient little invention) from his pocket and releasing the spring which controlled it, he was soon in communication with the inventor. ■ ' Hello Winfred! This is Ivan Thomas. My invention, I think, is a success. Come over to-night and we ' ll give it a final trial. " He then proceeded to call the others and received a flattering acceptance from each. It was an eager, excited group that gathered that night about the strange looking object, the success or failure of which meant so much to the inventor. and to the world. " I shall not bore you with details as to the mechanism, " said Ivan as he seated himself before the machine. ' ■But by means of this device I can con- trol certain atmospheric waves so that the pictured representation of whatever scene I desire can, by the manipulation of various keys, be projected before me much after the manner of the mirage that appears to the traveler in the desert. " And now for the test. What is your pleasure, friends? " " We are all members of the great class of ' 18 — let ' s see what has befallen the rest of our comrades, " suggested Henry; as Ivan leaned anxiously over the machine and touched several mysterious keys. Slowly there appeared to the wondering gaze of the watchers an indistinct, quivering jumble of shapes and colors, which gradually settled and formed a picture of startling distinctness — a vast auditorium packed with people of all stations in life, while a large man on the platform held them spellbound by his wonderful oratory. " Benjamin Seifert! Well who would ever have thought it! " A skillful adjustment of levers caused the vision to fade, and a deft touch of keys brought forth another. Again an interior was shown — a magnificent moving picture theatre. The first picture flashed upon the screen was a large portrait surrounded by ornate letters making this announcement: DALE DE FUR THE MAN WHO DISCOVERED THE SECRET OF SUCCESSFUL COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY. ■•How 1 An enti gently upon f line upon a windlass, h the excited watchers irded the boat and re- Our friends were then transported from the South Sea Islands to t lorth merely by the touch of a key and changing of a lever.

A small pig pen, very clean, with all modern improvements, very black pigs were helping themselves to the contents of a san trough. vherein three itary feeding " Potato peelings! " Ivan exclaimed. " Wei! we are supposed on Bessie May, but we seem to be going in by the back door. " to be calling " Bessie must be an extravagant housekeeper, " mused Henr; potato peelings. " r ' — " all those " Ha! The mystery is explained! " cried Winfred, as the interior of a large, well-lighted room was revealed containing rows of electric stoves, before each of which stood a white-clad girl frying golden brown potato chips, Bessie May efficiently directing operations. " Hum, wish she would pass them around, muttered Henry. " Some cook! She must have learned that in M. V. H. S. " Slowly the scene changed and to their wondering eyes now appeared a wide undulating plain on the edge of the jungle; far in the distance above the quivering haze of heat, could be seen the crests of snow-capped mountains. Here the sun poured like a brimming flood. Across the open plain a strange ' its way scattering innumerable wild beasts with which the place swarmed. Native porters, very black and tall could be seen carrying a large green tent; others were bearing tin boxes, loads of ammunition, a patent bath tub, bright new guns and other paraphernalia. The quantity of gleaming ivory tusks and fine leopard skins proclaimed the object of the leader who rode at the head of this imposing parade. " Loren Russell, a big game hunter in Darkest Africa! " exclaimed Bertha. lass of ' 18, " returned Henry. " If he is after " Here we are in good old U. S. A. once more, " as a well kept farm ap- peared.

" That ' s Flossie Crowder and Beulah Walker. I always buy gowns of them. " " That is why you always look so stylish. .Madeline. " said Winfred approv- ingly. From the country back into the city in a twinkling. Again was shown a gorgeous opera house, this time in Chicago, where a large, fashionable audience was gathered. To the right of the great stage stood a large tablet on which the program was announced in colored electric letters. Soon flashed brilliantly the announcement: The Latest Popular Song Hits Of The Day Words And Music By The Greatest Living Composer PAUL C. SCHERER Sung By The World ' s Most Famous Prima Donna Eleanor Page. " Wonderful! " breathed Ivan, as the great singer bowed herself off the stage after the fifth encore. An entirely different picture now appeared — a lovely garden with pink- blossomed cherry trees like huge boquets — flower-bordered paths — a rustic bridge — qua,int almond-eyed maidens in embroidered kimonas serving tea to a handsomely gowned lady seated at a bamboo table sheltered by a gay paper parasol. " Lillian Davis in Japan! What is she doing away over there? " " Well, you see, " explained Bertha, " Lillian secured a government position in Washington soon after she graduated and while there married an attache of the Japanese Legation — mighty fine man too, if he is a Jap. " Ivan shifted the " We certainly are traveling to-night. Look! It is the Alps. I have been there and I know that place — magnificent scenery! I have been in that very hotel way up there in the mountains. Mine host of the smiling countenance looks familiar: who is he? " " Why Henry, don ' t you know that face? That is Fred Thomas. He fell in love with a pretty Italian nurse when he was wounded in battle over there and married her, and her father being killed in the war, she fell heir to that little hotel in the mountains. But what is this coming? Rich tourists — that is an American car and a good one too. Americans of course. Why that is Katheryn Scott. But what is she making those funny signs for, I wonder? " " She is talking to her husband, " replied Madeline. " He is deaf and dumb but he is rich. " A characteristically American scene came next — a typical baseball field en- closed by the usual high board fence surmounted by a fringe of yelling boys; huge amphitheater crowded to capacity: a Big League game in full swing. " Casey to the bat I " yelled Ivan catching the spirit. " But he ' ll nev that ball if it is Herb Forthoffer batting, for that is some pitcliei-! And— friends, — it is Raymond Schneider! There you have two more 1918ers Back to the city again. A well-furnished room appeared; a ban woman sat at a desk rapidly touching the keys of a queer machine. " That is Lillian Stephens, " whispered Bertha. " What is she doin: looks something like an adding machine. " " Don ' t you see her card on the door? She is a professional poetes has a contrivance there that produces the poems for her by punching c keys, etc., sort of like a calculating machine or something like that; ] heard about it, " explained Winfred, rather vaguely. Lillian inserted a fresh sheet of paper headed: " The Song Of The Sea and began delicately touching the keys. Oh the Spring, the beautiful Spring! It makes you so tired that you can ' t do a thing. A smile of satisfaction lighted her face as she saw the result. Xi approval she started again. Oh the Summer fair and bright! I do not like it very well. It takes the curl out of my hair, And then it is as hot as blazes. A look of pained astonishment succeeded the smile. Something m wrong. A little oil applied and another start. The Winter cold has come at last: The season of mince pie and ham. But if the water pipes freeze up It makes us feel like saying Merry Christmas! Exasperated, the poetess carefully examined the mechanism but cou locate the defect. the trouble man, " she decided, and the CH ARLES BONNELL Fixer!

And the other, a seemingly simple, but very wonderful operation on the brain which makes the students fond of supervised .study. This latter one how- ever, is not contined to the pupils alone, for Dr. Davis is quite frequently called on to perform it on the teachers also. " Next a large bungalow at the edge of the city was shown. In the rear, a quaint, vine-covered build ing whose interior revealed rows of little boxes each with a wire run before it. " Baby chickens? " guessed Henry. " No; " as the picture became clearer, " guinea pigs; why the place is alive with guinea pigs! Who is it and what does he do it for?

Ray is a great author now. His first book — ' How To Be Happy Though Married ' — was such a success that he de- cided to make writing his life work. There, you see him at work. " Pacing up and down the room that had flashed into view, Ray dictated so rapidly that only Hazel Bottomley, most expert typist in the world, who could write three hundred words a minute, could keep up with him. " Now head the manuscript this way, " he ordered; and the rapid click of the keys began as Hazel took his dictation directly on the typewriter. " Love And Dreams " , by Ray Hames.

This time app garden of immense size in which grew plants of many different varietie of them strange and unfamiliar to our friends. " That is Orvan Hall, the horticulturist. He is known as the Seco bank, " said Henry. " But what kind of a tree is that? !t looks like hanging by strings of all lengths. " " That is his latest achievement, " explained Ivan. " He succeeded i ing the peach and the rubber trees so that, as the fruit ripens the stem s like rubber and lets it gently down within reach. Now he is experimenti the milk weed and egg plant and buttercup i tually combine them so as to produce a pla: " A circus! " cried Henry. " Now that ' s something like it. I always take my kids to all the shows, " as a typical circus scene came into view, showing the tents — flaring lights — good natured crowds pushing about the ticket wag- on — band blaring — colored balloons, and all the rest of it. On either hand forming a lane to the main entrance, great canvasses with their wonderful painted attractions swayed back and forth in the breeze. On a high platform before one of the most glaring of them sat a woman, gorgeously arrayed in shimmering, spangled satin, while on the floor about her lay the great coils of huge serpents, their upraised heads swaying rhythmically in obedience to the motion of her graceful bare arm. Calm and fearless, she flashed a superior smile at the awe-struck crowd. ' exclaimed Ivan. " Mary is bound to be a great seem to be going in and the show has begun. " " Listen! The ring-master is making an announcement. It must be an un- usual act — something about trapeze performers. Ah, here they come! " as two new figures in regulation trapeze costume came bounding into the ring, bowing right and left and kissing their hands to the spectators. They were then rap- idly swung to the dizzy heights of the trapeze where they proceeded to perform the most marvelous and daring feats ever accomplished in a circus. " Why we have been so absorbed i forgot to see who it is, " said Bertha, as they descended i plause. " Louise Ashworth and Glenn Knight! Will wonders never cease? ' " It must be getting near the end now, for here comes the trick mule " Sure enough, Winfred. Do you know that thing is always funny t( old as it is. Watch them fall off and try again. Ah!

All about me the earth lay in a deathly calm. The setti: everything a peculiar coppery glare that foretold t ordinary sounds of early twilight in the country w ture held its breath in expectation of the impending storm. Reluctantly I turned away from the magnificent view that had, for so many minutes, held me spell bound, for if I would make shelter before the storm Too long, however, had I stood drinking in the wild beauty of the scene for ere any form of sheltei- offered itself, the glaring sky became overcast with menacing clouds and the vind suddenly swept through the woods in wild gusts that drove sticks and leaves and stinging drops of rain into my face. As I stumbled along the unfamiliar way, nearly blinded by the furious on- slaught, my foot became entangled in a vine and I was thrown violently to the ground. So badly injured that I was unable to arise, I wearily dragged myself along the path, which, though bearing evidence of long disuse, nevertheless must lead to some place. Fortunately I was not compelled to proceed far in this painful manner, for at iin LTeat ilistHiice, there loomed before me the outlines of a lar,ge build- ing. SI I :iiii,(l i!m iiiiiis of a once fair garden, now overrun with weeds. Ut- ter ]) ' - I iicsted by the decay everywhere vident. The shutters hung disc - I . I li ' n and rusty hinges. Damp mould covered the walls and unk ' iiipi i.i.-.ii villi ' s fluttered in the wind, like crepe on the door of death. Austere and uluuniy beyond words, it was probably the ill-fated Mansion of Munster — long since deserted and shunned by all as haunted. When I reached the house, I managed to raise myself sufficiently to reach the large, rusty knocker that sent ghostly echoes through the ancient building. To all appearances the place was entirely deserted. But shelter I must have, and surely ghosts and hob.gobllns within were preferable to the fearful storm that raged without. So summoning what courage I could I tried the lock, and to my surprise, the door swung heavily open, the rusty hinges creaking and rasping from long disuse. As I crawled within, the wind caught the heavy door and blew it shut with a bang that went echoing through the deserted rooms as if a hundred doors were being slammed by ghostly hands. Fearfully I gazed about the great hall in which I found myself. Although the place afforded shelter from the raging elements, I could not shake off a feeling of dread as of impending disaster. It w as damp and chill, and dank odors assailed my nostrils; it was as though I had entered the foul air of a tomb. The purpling light of dying day lent a ghostly aspect to the suits of armor that adorned the mouldy walls. The door of a spacious drawing room stood open and in the semi-gloom I glimpsed a tapestried couch which, though covered with the mould and dust of years, yet promised some degree of comfort to my pain-racked body. As I lay there, soaked, weary and sore, my eyes roamed about the room. The rich hangings of the windows had rotted till they hung by one corner or by mere threads to their poles, thus admitting a faint light, dim it is true, but suf- ficient to disclose the grandeur of the apartment; the massive furniture with its rich but faded upholstery; the tarnished frames of the portraits of by-gone Munsters, whose eyes seemed to concentrate on me, the luckless intruder; the magnificent rugs and tapestries covered and ruined by the dust and mold of Drenched and chilled, weakened by pain and hunger, I lay in that ghoul- ish room in the mysterious Mansion of Munster — alone amid the vast dreary solitude of that uncanny abode- alone in that magnificent yet awful room whose mouldering walls held the secret of the mystery of the beautiful Mirabel Mun- The hangings, rich and gorgeous though they once had been, now appeared black and lusteiless in the darkness that was rapidly enshrouding the room. The whole atmosphere of the place was one of unutterable gloom and depres- sion. The dim twilight soon deepened into sooty blackness, impenetrable and fearsome. The fury of the storm without but added to the horror. Curtains stirred and doors creaked as though invisible shades passed through them. My overwrought nerves, racked by my injuries, quivered at the thought of spending the night alone in that gruesome place. Alone in the velvety black- ness! Alone in the mysterious Mansion of Munster! leep stupor and must vent of night, the uncanny noises within the place had increased ten-fold — scurrying sounds as of innumerable rats, the mournful whoo-oo-oo of owls; the flutter of bats ' wings in the very room and worse — shrill, cackling laughter, with ever and anon a thin squeak as of an animal or even a child in sudden pain. And always there was a horrible, unconquerable feeling of a presence, invisible in the inky darkness that enveloped me like a pall of black velvet. Helpless in that rten of torment, rigid with horror, I felt a cold touch upon my brow. Then again. Slowly over my icy face and down the full length of my body a loathsome lizard dragged its clammy length and dropped with a dull thud to the floor, at my feet. Would it repeat the performance? Were there others — hundreds of them and would each drag its foul length over my face? Quivering with disgust and horror, depressed by the doleful cry of the owls, fanned by the flapping wings of bats, unnerved by the number and evi- dent boldness of the scurrying rats, dreading the return of the reptile or others of its kind, tormented by the uncanny noises of the fearful place, I lay vainly striving to pierce the impenetrable blackness, when suddenly ' at my very head came a repetition of that shrill, cackling laughter that previously in some re- mote part of the house had filled my soul with terror. Human nerves could stand no more and I found merciful relief in a deep swoon. All too soon my eyes opened to a dim light which my shuddering senses perceived came from a flickering candle in the boney hand of a ghoulish, unearthly figure perched on a large chair not far from my couch. Man or specter? More like the devil, from his sinister, evil look, the bright glitter of his sunken eyes, the claw-like hands. But if a man, then a mad man, terrifyingly. hideously mad. Leering at me with his evil face close to mine, his long hair hanging in white wisps about the pale, pinched face, his deep set eyes burning with the fire of madness, he seemed the concentration of all the horrors that had infested the fearful night. Rats swarmed about him; owls perched on his shoulders; bats flattened their disgusting bodies against him. Still leering at me, he shrilled, " What think you of my children? I take it you are not fond of them? They are spirits, all, " again the shrill laughter and the skinny hand waving the flickering candle, " all spirits of the dear de- parted. The rats are shades of Munsters — dead, but not gone; the owls and bats are cronies that still haunt the place they frequented in its palmy days. And Lizzie here, " caressing the loathsome lizard that slid upon his knees, " is the beautiful Mirabel, last of the Munsters. " The wild eyes glittered and the pallid skin of the maniac took on a ghastly hue in the ghostly light as my fascinated gaze clung to his face. Was the mystery of Mirabel Munster about to be solved at last? I held my breath, horrified, afraid to speak lest the evil vision vanish without disclos- " Nobody knows what became of Mirabel? " the high pitched voice con- tinued, " Nobody knows but Uncle Ezra — he knows! They thought they ' d keep crazy Uncle Ezra in the dungeon, did they? Uncle Ezra was mad — mad — no- body must know — disgrace to the family — keep him shut up until he died — mad — disgrace! Well, brother Ira, who was to go down to the dungeon to feed the mad man when Ira died? Mirabel, of course. Who stayed in the dungeon? Not the mad man! " The claw like fingers beat a Devil ' s tattoo on the back of the lizard on his knees. Suddenly the frightful figure bent close over me. I shrank with fear. What might not the maniac do? He was mad — utterly mad — and I helpless and alone. Nearer drew the ghastly face, the piercing eyes burning into mine. Nearer — till the beak-like nose almost touched my face. What would he do? Of what hideous form of torture might not this demon be capable! My blood congealed, — nearer, nearer, — the thin lips drew back in a leering grin over the few fang-like teeth. I could not move — rigid with horror, I lay with my eyes fixed on his as a bird is charmed by a snake that seeks to devour it. I lay and awaited the fate that so surely impended. The candle sputtered low in its socket, as the long arm waved wildly, and suddenly went out, leaving us again in utter darkness. Now the pressure of long, cold, bony fingers on my throat — slowly press- ing — pressing — I seized the thin but powerful arms of the demon and with an almost su- perhuman effort endeavored to force him off — only to find myself lying in the path where I had fallen, rigidly grasping a branch, blown by the tempest across my throat. —EMMA FULLINWIDER, ' 18. " O can it! " A book flew from little Jiniiny Stuait ' s haud. passing peril- ously near his room-mate ' s head. " Can ' t you let nie mourn in peace without reciting absurd poetry about the weather? " " I though it might cheer you up, " responded John Holt, meekly, but with a twinkle in his eye. " Oh, cheer up, James, me boy, it doesn ' t affect the fate of the nation because you were rejected at recruiting headquarters this morn- ing. There are plenty of other fellows who can go. " " It ' s all right for you to joke about it, you don ' t want to go, and, further- more, could go if j ou wanted to. But to be rejected because you ' re so little, too little to fight for your country! Oh, it ' s terrible! That ' s right, go on and laugh.

" So he and his bi ' aves rode away, chieftain rode hurriedly baclf into the and cried out to his people, ' Wetona! thought she was gone! ' " He hastened to his lodge and entered, but Wetona was not there. He searched the village, the forest, the lake-shore, but Wetona was gone, and never again did he see her. He had broken his promise, she had kept hers. " But as her appearance had brought peace, so her disappearance brought peace to her people, for the chieftain had no longer any desire for warfare. Nor could he bear to remain near the lake Wetona had loved. So he led his people far away and left the lake deserted. " Even to this day, on summer evenings, Wetona is seen wandering on the shore or sitting on the rock in the center, gazing into the water. Sometimes, too, the chieftain appears and searches both the lake and its margin for Wetona. But at his coming she vanishes and never can he find her. " Night had come on as my guide talked, and as he ended his story, the moon suddenly shone out through the trees. Its rays fell full upon the rock in the lake and for a moment I thought I saw on it the foini of an Indian maiden. MARY LOUISE FITTON. ' 19. Music Hath Charms.

They seemed much interested in the sport and with the help of Mrs. Sandefur played a very successful season.

FOOT-BALL SEASON — 1917. t have as Kuccessful a season as could have been expect- ant! losing tour. This showing can chiefly be at- tributed to injuries; making it impossible for the local high to have its full strength at any time during the season. At that, however, Mt. Vernon was only outplayed In one game, that at Evansville, which was played in mud, shoe top deep. This prevented Mt. Vernon ' s fast half-backs getting away for any runs. Allen of Mt. Vernon was picked as all-Pocket half-back, first team, and Gross- man and Woodward as tackle and guard respectively, on second team. We were unfortunate in not having a regularly employed coach for this seison, but we were fortunate in that Louis Alles, a former athletic star gave his time and skill to help Mt. Vernon keep up her standard. The following players were awarded letters at the end of the season.

Our first contest was held at Wadesville in a County meet, Mt. Vernon being pitted against Wades- ville, New Harmony, Griffin and Stewartsville combined. We succeeded in tak- ing all firsts but one and returned with a score of 621 2 to 37% in our favor. Point winners for Mt. Vernon were Capt. Ridenour, Allen, Williams, Kaufman, Rethwisch, Ashworth, Reedle, Starken, Ruminer and Cowen. After about three weeks more of practice our track team, consisting of Capt. Ridenour, Rethwisch, Reedle, Ruminer, Allen, Ashworth, Williams and Cowen were entered in the Quadrangle meet at Petersburg. Kaufman, our weight man, was unable to accompany the squad. This meet proved to be one of the fastest meets ever held under the Quadrangle rules. Although we were not the winners of the meet, we captured 13 points and several medals. r!»i7 ii: ( K Third Row: Aniulus Ueedle. Henry Retwisch.
