Table of Contents Dedication Frontispiece Foreword Faculty Senior Junior Sophomore Freshman Literary Music and Dramatics Athletics Agriculture Echoes Jokes Advertisements Si i Isail HI-LDG Foreword In naming this volume, the first annual published by the Mt. Vernon High School, lue have endeavored to select a title not only pleasing to the eye and ear but one " which has a significance as well. " Hi " is the popular abbreviation for High School, vjhile the meaning of " Log " is derived from the use of the ship ' ' s-log in recording the number of knots of a vessel ' s course. The root is found in a similar sense in the vuords " cata- log " and " prolog. " It has been our purpose in publishing this book to present to the students a history in pictures and in vjords of the activities of the school year 1920-192J . We desire to express our gra titude to all those voho have aided the Forum Staff in this task; and especially are vue indebted to the committee of seniors vjithout vjhose efforts this volume vjould not have been possible. Thus ivith the earnest hope that it may afford some pleasure to its readers novj and in the future, we send this Hi-log forth. n ii9an r IHEEBE V y H. C. KOCH A. B.

Soon came the day on a September morning Wti n with bright glory emblazoned upon them, Brows fair with beauty and eyes full of knowledge, Entered the wonderful class now departing. Full of complaisance, gazing before them, Calmly they learned and remembered their learning. Calmly they spoke with words full of wisdom Until the teachers, now young grown and happy, Whispered, " What manner of Wonderful , are these? " Thus passed the first year, and they entered the recond, Taller in stature and fairer in manner, Attacked they then poor old Caesar with coolness, Until that brave general foreseeing their triumph Withdrew his army and murmured within him, " Surely this class is a cla;:; with a vengeance. Yes, it ' s the first class that ever o ' ercame me. " And the mathematician, old Euclid, exclaiming Over the masterful arts of their knowledge, Said, " Never more can I speak with my wisdom.

Gaily their fourth year ushered them forward, And they began the last stage of their journey Wisdom persoir tied ; then did they justice Unto the learning that there had been given.

Loud rang the wailing, the despairing of teachers, For the most intellectual of classes was leaving. And seeing them standing so fair on the platform Receiving their bravely won parchments of sheep skin, Doubt seized those teachers so sad, melancholy. That ever a class of their equal should ever Step into the niche that was now standing vacant. Thus passes the. class that had brightened the High School Re-inspired the teachers and set up a standard Of learning and wisdom and friendship united. RUTH HER HICK. ' 21.

Hi-LDERgos The Legend of Ramona By Dorothy Nixon ' 21 In my grandfather ' s house reposing peacefully on the mantel, amidst old muskets, battle axes and swords is a perfectly molded Indian tomahawk. It is grayish in color with evenly shaped black spots intermingling with other particles of the stone. It is at least five inches long and three inches wide. A groove at the top is formed for a split, stick which the Indians used for handles and for the purpose of hurling violently. Close to the sharp edge of the stone a faint blood stain is discerned. As a child this weapon of an age long past ay as always a great source of amusement, wonder and imagination for me. My grandfather found it many years ago on his farm, and he treasured it highly. He told me many imagin- ary stories about it, and being a child with a vivid imagination, I enjoyed more than one happy hour thinking and wondering about this tomahawk. One day while sitting before the fire at my grandfather ' s home, looking at the tomahawk, something seemed to say to me, " What if the tomahawk could speak? I wonder what wonderful tale of the ages it would tell? " Oh! I wish it could, " I cried aloud . " Do you really? " said the thinnest, pipiest little voice imaginable, from the mantel. I looked up, startled, and the sight I saw almost made me fall off my chair. I rubbed my eyes, I pulled them open as wide as I could but no, it was no mistake, for there, dangling funny little feet clad in tiny Indian moc- casins, over the mantel sat that Indian tomahawk grinning and as alh r e as you please. " Oh! Oh! " I cried. " Don ' t get excited, I shall not harm you, " he said reassuringly; " for a long time I have heard you wish to know my history, and although some parts of it recall unspeakable grief to my heart, I have, come today, prepared to tell you. That i " , if you really care to hear it. " " Oh yes, yes! " I cried, " hut tell me, sir, who you. are and where did you come from? " " I am the ' Spirit of Indian Life ' and I come from the happy ' hunting grounds where all my kind are contented and prosperous. But I must hurry and begin my story for I have not long to stay. The gates of the happy hunting grounds are closed at the first streaks of twilight. " " Ye r yes, begin, begin, " 1 urged eagerly. Then clearing his throat, and crossing his legs, squatting down in Indian fashion, he thus began : " Many years ago when the red man first inhabited this fair land of yours, down in the beautiful valley of a great river dwelt a little band of Indians. They had been ha ppy in the past, lint now quite frequently rumors of an enemy reached their ears. These people were a very brave and fierce little band and although their numbers, were hut few, they never feared battle. The chief of this tribe was Red Hawk and he had two sons and one daughter, Ramona. His sons were no different from other young warriors of the tribe, but his daughter, Ramona, was an exception to all young squaws of past gen- J9ftllggQ @ )OcS ; HI-LDC erations, as tall and as slender as a young oak tree, as graceful as a deer, as brave as a young lioness and as beautiful as the raresl wild flower that ever grew in the forest. She had shining black hair, and eyes thai quite riv- alled the stars in their brightness. But she was hated by the tribe. Ramona disliked the toil and drudgery Avhich was expected of a squaw and refused to do it. She loved to hunt, to fish, and to race on her horse " Running Eagle " as did her warrior brothers. For this she was called " man-squaw. " and was laughed and jeered at by every one of her people, even by her brothers, her father and her mother. Ramona lived a miserable, unhappy life and the only pleasure she knew was roaming and hunting in the forests. She knew where the best meat was to be found, where the speckled trout had his home, where the tierce lions and bears dwelt and she often supplied the poor and sick of the village with meat. Yet they taunted her. One evening on returning from an all-day hunt in the forest, she saw a great disturbance in the village and urging " Running Eagle " to a gallop she hastened toward the. scene. On arriving she saw all the warriors in full war dress apparently leaving; her father was addressing the people, and women and children were crying. Reining in her horse, Ramona stopped at the edge of the crowd and listened. " Oh people, an enemy approaches from the rising sun and tonight we go to camp on trail. May the Great Spirit guide us and keep you until Ave safely return. And may the Evil Spirit and the All Powerful One of the Underworld clear our pathways. Be of good cheer, people, for before the moon is yet a web, we shall return. The young men of the tribe will guard and supply you with meat. " Having thus spoken, he mounted his horse and a thousand, warrior throats rose high in a war song. The women and children followed them to the edge of the village — all except Ramona. She remained where she stood following the disappearing ones with her eyes, wishing that she too might accompany them. " Man-squaw! man-squaw! Why don ' t you go if you are so brave. ' " taunted the returning women. " You no squaw; you man-rquaw! Man-Fquav ' Do man ' s work ! " Ramona quietly withdrew and following close behind her came the old medicine man of the camp, the Indian soothsayer. Ramona stopped her horse and dismounting, stood with bowed head, ( ' hauling his weird song he stopped before her and spoke strange words: " Oh warrior girl, daughter of our chief, I had a strange dream last night. Be of good cheer. () Ramona. Eor my dream foretold your great bravery. I traveled to the dark caverns of the under- world and conversed with its All Powerful King. He told me to give you this. " He handed her a tomahawk, perfectly mil and beautifully shaped Ramona took it, bewildered. Again the soollrayer r-poke: " With this greal weapon of your tribe you will save your people. " With these words he de- parted. Ramona slipped the tomahawk in her bell and led her horse to drink, marveling at the words the medicine man had spoken. As days wore on, the Indian princess prized the tomahawk more and more, for nothing lived where it struck. It seemed almocl magic. On the day that her father and the other warriors were expected to return, Ramona, wishing to avoid their taunts, started for the forest. She had not gone far when she saw approaching from a distance, a greal hand of l9aH in a HI-LQE C : Indians. Her quick senses told her that they were not her people. Scouting out in the forest as stealthily as a panther, she. investigated and saw a great hand of hostile Indians approaching in single file. Probably the very band her father Avas trailing ! Racing Running Eagle, she flew back to camp peal- ing forth the war cry of the. tribe. " The enemy! The enemy! " she cried, and the women and children fell into a panic. Rushing to the young braves of the tribe, who were not yet old enough to fight on the warpath, she commanded them to don their war dress and to saddle their horses immediately. They were, frightened and did not offer to comply with her commands. " Cowards! Cowards! will you let your people die? " she cried. Dumbly they rallied and obeyed her. They donned their war dress and followed her forth to battle. She led them, fierce and beautiful on her noble steed, Avith the tomahawk held high in her hand. Shouting their Avar cry they met the enemy at the edge of the forest. Dodging in and out from behind trees, Ramona ga T e forth her orders. BraA ely shp battled, urging on her men with words of courage. They obeyed her slightest command and fought with every ounce of strength in them. They were outnumbered, but succeeded in holding their ground, although fast be- coming exhausted. Ramona again pealed forth her war cry, now u ' dng her tomahawk right and left. . Suddenly she heard a great cry behind her, and turning, the sight that she saAV made her rejoice. Her father and his war- riors a thousand strong had returned, and learning of the enemy, were rush- ing to aid her. She galloped to meet them and many times charged shoulder to shoulder with the braves. The enemy Avas defeated. They fled on their horses, leaving their Avounded to die on the battle ground. Ramona fought to the last; then with the rest she sang the song of Adctory as they rode back in triumph to the Adllage. When she reached the camp all her people, fell on their knees before her Avorshiping her for their deliverance " . Raising her hand she bade them arise. Straightening up and tossing back her beautiful hair she threw open her blanket and bared her breast. There buried deep in her bosom was a poison arrow. Smiling she said, " Oh my people, yon despise me, but I die for yon! " She fell from her saddle lifeless. Her life-blood ebbed away and thus the ttain on the tomahawk. " And I was thai weapon, " paid the Spirit of Indian Life, " iler people buried her in the beautiful river as was their custom but never Avould they touch me. I was cacred to them and they ga e sacrifices to the Great Spirit at my altar. Thus I remained thete until many years after your " " Hey- dey! My btlle girl dreaming again? " I looked around and my grandfather stood Laughing at me through the doorway. 1 looked on the mantel and there reposing peacefully amidst all others of its kind was the Indian tomahawk. I rubbed my eyes.

OQD (4 Athenaeum The Athenaeum this year, as for the past five years, has met weekly in Room 5 and conducted business and literary sessions alternately. Some inter- esting programs were given. An especially good one, the Hallowe ' en pro- gram, was presented last fall at an open meeting, members of the Delphi being guests. At a recent meeting Miss Campbell and Miss Ruth Davis gave very interesting and instructive talks about Florida. At the beginning of the. year the sixteen vacancies were immediately filled by new members, leaving such a large waiting list thai there was con- sideration of dividing the. society; the Freshmen and Sophomores comprising the one, and the Juniors and Seniors constituting the real Athenaeum. This plan, however, Avas abandoned as the Freshmen and Sophomore girls were not enthusiastic about a minor society. A Hallowe ' en initiation in Mary Han- som ' s barn caused much merriment at the expense of the new members. The Athenaeum and Delphi societies together presented " What Happened to Jones, " on December sixteenth and seventeenth. This was a decided suc- cess and was greatly enjoyed by appreciative audiences, the proceeds from which were, used for improving the auditorium stage. The annual Athenaeum reception for the purpose of inaugurating the spring officers was held February fourth. The Delphi, together with the faculty and a few other guests were present. There was a short program, followed by a good time for every one. There has been no lack of interest during the year; rules have been strictly enforced and the Athenaeum fellowship, as usual, has been greatly enjoyed. The large waiting list insures the continuation of the Athenaeum, despite the graduation of thirty-four seniors.

HI-LDG Delphi This June marks the close of the fourth year thai the Delphi Literary Society has been in existence. At the opening of this school year all of the members were resolved to make this the biggest and best year llial the Society has known and with this purpose, in view we inaugurated our famous mem- bership campaign. By its close we had more than sixty members in the society, the constitution having been amended to allow this number; pre- viously it had provided for only forty. Thus we began our year full of en- couragement and hopes for still better things. Nor were these in vain, for when we united with the Athenaeum to stage " What Happened to Jones " our fondest expectations were realized. This play, with seven Delphites in the cast, was a tremendous success, and was declared one of the best plays thai has ever been given by a body of Mt. Vernon High School students. Through the year our meetings were occasionally taken up with programs one of which was an excellent talk by Rev. Cleeland on the subject, " The Siamese Twins. " This lecture was very interesting and Mas greatly enjoyed by all of the boys. The other programs were made intersting by vocal solos: or by talks and readings by the members. These programs were in every way a great credit to the committee in charge. These things and many others constituted the workings of the Delphi Literary Society in 1920-1921 and all of the members who graduate from the high school this year leave their heartiest wishes that the Delphi will he even more prosperous next year and in the years to come.

The Debate at Mt. Vernon Debate claimed its usual place in school activities this year. After nearly five months of studious preparation, our orators of the affirmative team met their opponents from NeAvark in the. twelfth annual triangular debate. Friday, March 18 was a night long to be remembered in Mt. Vernon High School annals; for on that occasion the reputed spirit of the rooters of the Orange and Black Avas at its highest. The. half hour immediately preceding the debate was devoted to a " pep " rally. Then the chairman, Judge LeAvis B. Houck, announced the debate by stating the question, " Resolved: that Ohio should adopt a system for the compulsory settlement of industrial dis- putes (constitutionality conceded). " The arguments for Mt. Vernon were presented by Grace Sandy, Lloyd Michael, and Margaret Oliver in a most convincing and pleasing manner. Each speaker was thoroughly alive to his work and showed a complete knoAvledge of the. art of debating — thanks, to Mr. Fast, our able coach. Kenneth Stone- brook, alternate, Avas an untiring Avorker and deserved his share of credit. The debate Avas close throughout, but when the rebuttals were completed we felt confident of victory. " Mirabile dictu! " the decision Avas not what Ave had anticipated — Newark 2, Mt, Vernon 1. But our team accepted the defeat magnanimously and the school forgot its disappointment in the pride it felt for its loyal debaters. To know how to accept victory is good, but to know how to accept defeat is better.

The Debate at Zanesvitte The students of Zanesville H. S. came en masse to the twelfth annual debate on the night of March eighteenth. This contest, which was witnessed by only a small number of Mt. Vernon people, was to be» held between their affirmative team and Mr. Vernon ' s negative team. Pandemonium reigned in their auditorium and was unchecked until the chairman came forward and set the wheels of debate in motion. Zanesville ' s outline of attack was presented by the first affirmative speaker, Mary Pirsch. The. arguments she advanced were understandable and convincing. Geoffrey Errett delivered the first speech for Mt. Vernon ' s cause, and with an air of determination and prepossession he upheld the Negative ' s prin- ciples. Ruth Heagen, Zanesville ' s second speaker, was somewhat inconsistent and was a bit hesitant in the delivery of her main arguments. The debating of our negative team was greatly strenthened by the abil- ity of Charles Copper, the second speaker. Experience aided him in present- ing one of the strongest and most concise speeches of the entire debate. All hopes of success for Zanesville were plainly centered in Allied inn. who handled his subject very skillfully and was well-versed in it. Mt. Vernon ' s final speaker, Priscilla Tarr, reflected greal credil on Mt. V. and with her review of the negative issues, and her oratorical ability we firmly believed that Mt.

Four records were established, which will be hard to equal by future teams. The highest number of points ever gained by a Mt. Vernon High School foot- ball team in a single game, was made against Newark, while Mansfield and Newark, ancient rivals ,were defeated by a larger score than in any previous year. Cambridge was also defeated on her own field, a feat which had not been accomplished by a Mt. Vernon team before. A record was ako estab- lished in the number of points made in the season, the previous record being two hundred fifty while this year two hundred ninety-six points were rolled up by the 1920 Orange and Black gridders. The season was also a success from a financial standpoint, money being cleared at every game for the first time in history. Several of the star gridders, including Corcoran, the Mc- Broom twins, Grubb, Biefness, Swingle, Stream, Bishop and Hildebrand have played their last game, and their shoes will be difficult to fill by the under- graduates. Following is the record which they leave behind and by which w» may remember the football season of 1920 : Mt. Vernon 28 Mt. Vernon 61 Mt. Vernon 67 Mt. Vernon 59 Mt. Vernon •Mt. Vernon 27 Mt.

CLYDE McBROOM Quarterback This ' ' Mac ' ' was perhaps the brain- iest member of the squad and for two years piloted the team through success- ful seasons. Chicago University will welcome him next year also. ft WILLIAM CORCORAN Halfback " Brownie " has finished his career as a member of the football team, having served four years on the varsity. He is without a doubt, the greatest football man ever turned out by Mt. Vernon Hi. His record of fifty-three touchdowns in two years speaks for itself. HAROLD CUNNINGHAM End " Cookies " can hurl that pigskin just a little farther than anyone else we know of. We don ' t think thai anyone else can hurl it seventy yards and that is what he can do.

Vernon ' s high school basketball quintet, during the pasl season rolled up a marvelous record and one whose merits are no1 to be denied. Twenty-one games were played and the Orange and Black emerged triumphant in nineteen of these struggles. One of the games was lost to Akron West on the latter ' s floor by the small margin of one point, 26-25, and the second at the hands of Woodward Tech 19-14 for the championship of Northern Ohio at Delaware. Ralph Wright, star forward, was ruled ineli- gible on the eve of this contest. Seven hundred sixty-three points were rolled up against the opposition while the opponents were held to three hundred ten, an average of thirty-six to fourteen. In only two contests were over twenty points scored against Coach Michaels ' proteges, due to the excellent guarding of Cunningham. Cor- corcoran and Claude McBroom. Captain Clyde McBroom, Ralph Wright and Smith each scored over one hundred field goals, while Charles Wright as sub- stitute scored thirty-five. Under the management of Claude Turben, the hardest schedule ever arranged was attempted and the best financial condition in the history of the school was brought about. The following record speaks volumes of praise for both the coach and the team : Mt. Vernon 54 Bucyrus i ; Mt. Vernon 37 Mansfield 17 Mt. Vernon 29 Cambridge it; Mt. Vernon 37 Canton McKinley 17 Mt.

In spite of the recent war, the time for a provision of I his nature seemed to ripen in 1917 when a bill was passed providing for Hie Federal Government to furnish considerable financial aid in the teaching of trades and industries, Vocational Agriculture and home economics, these branches to be taught in high schools in part time classes and night schools. Our State Board of Education immediately accepted the provisions of the. Federal act, submitted their plan for vocational education, and all these branches of instruction were started in January, 1918. Speaking specifically of the vocational agriculture, seventeen departments were opened in operation and at present the number stands at sixty-two. The function of these departments is entirely of an agricultural nature. It is to make it possible for the rural boy to avail himself of a knowledge of many general agricultural principles. It is to instill in him a desire to put into practice these universal principles, and to so control them thai they will con- tribute to his ultimate welfare. It is to aid him to make a decent living without which he can never be a desirable citizen. Upon the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, the .Mt. Ver- non School Board made application for a vocational agriculture department in the local high school, and the department was instituted one week before school opened last September. With the purposes heretofore mentioned, this department hopes to function, serving particularly those pupils whose interest inclines toward the farm, by developing those interests into actual, service- able attainments. The curriculum for the course is planned as nearly as possible in accord- ance with the local needs of our community. It is conducted so that each boy completes a study of live stock and poultry; held crops and horticulture; soils, fertilizers and dairying; farm mechanics and farm accounting. The student pursues one of the " ?e combinations each year he is in High School and is asked to conduct some piece of work at home which is in keeping with his class work. When the new class rooms are ready for occupancy the crowded condition in the agriculture department will he relieved to the extent that a farm shop can be installed which will be available to the pupils. The boys are encouraged to bring problems Prom home. Mich as saws to be filed and set. harness to be mended, et cetera. It is hoped therefore that through this process of co-ordination of the school and farm, by bringing these home tasks to the classroom for achieve ment, and by taking the classwork to the farm in the form of the home pro- ject and in class visitations to the farm that we may " lure the lad to barn. " t i9ailr o fe Hi-Lac ECHOES Ml) XJ T TOTS THEY fiRE ! Dear Betty : March 28, 1921. Since you left many things have happened in old Mt. V., so I am going to tell you everything; for I know you were very disappointed when you could not finish up here. On Tuesday, September 7 the bunch met as usual, and went to school. Everyone was glad to start again after a long vaca- tion and we. were in the best of spirits. The first item for comment was the many new faces. It seemed as if there were five hundred Freshmen, (and what tots they are. !) but in reality there were only one hundred ninety-five. One of the many additions this year is the agriculture department. It is a splen- did course and I am sure in another year it will be more, fully appreciated. Everything was in full swing when Ave had our second annual tag day, Septem- ber 25. It was carried out in the same manner as last year ' s, so I won ' t tell you anything about it except that we raised about six hundred fifty dollars to increase the athletic fund. It wasn ' t any time until the football boys were out for practice. We had one of the most successful teams ever turned out by Mt. Vernon Hi. We Avon from both NeAvark and Mansfield, our old rivals, by large scores, and on Thanksgiving day Ave played an exciting game with Alliance and won by a score of 34 to 6. You certainly missed some wonderful battles but I know your heart was with us in eA ery one of them. In the midst of this triumphant season, the school observed " Better Eng- lish Week " the first Aveek in November. " We had a great deal of fun and also acquired some additional " mother tongue. " That Monday morning Ave had chapel Avith a Better English program and Friday afternoon the rhetoric classes gave a play entitled " The Conspiracy. " In all the English classes we were required to make posters or slogans for the Aveek. Our English Literature class contributed some very good one?. The Athenaeum took advantage, of Hal- loAve ' en and initiated all the new members. We old ones were dressed as ghosts and the new ones all unsuspecting, wore their best party frocks. You can imagine the results for you were initiated once your- self. 1 was so sorry you couldn ' t be here for the Alheuaeum-Delphi play, " What Hap- pened to Jones. " It was without a doubt the cleverest play ever put on by any class or society of the High School in my day. Miss Williams and Mr. Fast coached it. Cloyce Christopher as Jones OC5 i9ailS3Q HI- LUG fl Mary Ransom as Cissy, Cedric Sinitli as Ebenezer Goodly, a professor of anatomy, Mary Dowds, his wife, and Charles Wrighl as Richard, had the principal parts. We presented il two nights and lad a packed house both limes. The Seniors had an Xmas party and il proved to be so differenl from all other parties we ever had thai everyone enjoyed it. We had a Christmas tree, Santa Clans find many games. Soon after we returned from our two weeks ' vacation, we learned thai some temporary buildings were to be creeled to relieve the congested condition of the school and behold! in three weeks they were roofed ready to be occupied. Can you imagine it? Well you might if you had heard the vicious hammers. As you know the walls in this building are in a sad state and need some- thing to relieve their bareness. In order to obtain pictures, we had, on Jan- uary 19, 20 and 21 an ail exhibit showing pictures provided by the Bison Art Company of Belmont, Massachusetts. The paintings aboul two hundred in number, were by the best known artists and were y(ty good prints. Nearly one hundred forty-five dollars were cleared. This sum has been senl to I he Elson Company for which we shall receive pictures in return. Another of the social events which you missed was the annual Athenaeum reception. I think it was one of the loveliest parties we ever had. The new officers were installed and a short program given. The grand march led us to the annex, where lovely green and white refreshments were served, after which everyone joined in singing both school and popular songs and wenl away wishing the evening had been twice as long. The thing which occupied our attention most during January and Febru- ary was basketball. I suppose you watched the accounts of the games with even greater interest than you did those of the football game. As you know, we played twenty-one games, losing but two, and if you followed the schedule, you raw that we did not have an easy opponent in the lot. When the preliminaries were played at Delaware, February 25 and 26, a crowd, nearly equal in size to the one going to the. finals, went with the team. The town was simply crazy over basketball ; there was never so much enthusiasm. The team came home Sunday afternoon and it seemed as if all of Mt. Vernon turned out to meet them. Cooper ' s band also went to the train and plans were started to take the K. of P. band to the finals and to hire a special train. isaipgo l s y HI-LOG The. morning of the finals came at last and with it a gray sky which seemed to foretell some disaster. Nearly three hundred people went on the special and everyone, confident of victory, Avas in the best of spirits. Ralph Wright, who had been ill all week, was again feeling fine, and our chances seemed better than ever. Fate, however, was playing against us and our trouble began in earnest when, reaching Delaware, Ave learned that Ralph had been ruled ineligible by the state board and therefore Avould be unable to play The team, Lke a machine with one of the Avheels gone, was unable to work and although coming up in the second half to within one point of their opponent ' s score, was unable to OA ' ercome Fate and win the game. As Ave saAv our team work during that game, the conviction grew and greAv that we, fighting against odds, had the best team entered at DelaAvare. Our spirits were nearly as high on returning home as they had been Avhen Ave left. The team Avon a cup anyhoAv for making the highest number of points, in its class, in the tournament. Hardly had we ushered our beloved athletes off the chapel platform the following Monday until our debaters were, given an enthusiastic ovation and the next Friday evening the Triangular contest occurred. You can fully appre- ciate the feelings of the team and I be- lieve imagine just hoAv the audience acted. Only instead of winning, as you helped us to do before, both teams lost. The bloAv Avas a hard one but I think Ave took it A ery well, rejoicing in the one fav- orable A r ote. Supt. Zemer, who has been Avith us for so long, has resigned and leaves April 4 for an extended visit in Nebraska. EA ery- one regrets his resignation but Avishes for him continued usefulness. Both glee clubs are working harder ' than ever, preparing for their concert Avhich Avill be given April 22. We have Junior and Senior quartettes, Avhich Avill sing at the concert. Senior Week of course, Avill be the usual gay one, including the spectac- ular senior play staged by the Rogers Producing Company, and the Senior party, one of the. best CA r er. There are one hundred ten in the class this year, the largest, brightest and best, in the history of the High School. Isn ' t that class patriotism? You feel that way too, I suppose. I don ' t know what the plans for commencement day are yet, but I think they Avill be about the. same as before. Do try and come that Aveek and pretend you are graduating with ns. Well, Betty, the end must come sometime, but in the meantime, we had better be hard at work to keep up that brilliant ' 21 record. Good-bye until commencement time, PEGGY (Fannie Roberts, ' 21).
