ljecause l would be young in soul and mind
l'hough years must pass and age my life constrain.
And I have found no vvay to lag behind
The fleeting years. save by the magic chain
That binds me. youthful, to the youth I love,
Because I would be vvise and wisdom find
lfruin millions gone before whose torch I pass.
Still burning bright to light the paths that wind
Su steep and rugged. for each lad and lass
Slow-climbing to the unrevealed above,
Because in passing on the living flame
That ever brighter burns the ages through.
I have done service that is worth the name
Can I but say. "The flame of knowledge grew
A little brighter in the hands I taughtf'

And for collection he does search
And sadly drops 21 dime.

In the fall of 1919. natives from several countries arrived at Blullierry
Mission for the purpose of getting started in the way tu greatness.
First there was the little German lmoy named XYarren Bates. He was
dark complexioned. small and inclined to indolence. Not being accustomed
to the ways of the country. he soon returned to his native land.
Next there came a southerner. Stanley -lacobs. who had the southern
brogue to perfection. He was fond of athletics and a great admirer of the
girls. He never learned how to appreciate our climate. hut soon returned to
the sunny south.
Paul Sigrist. another German luoy. came to study for the ministry. He
was light of complexion and very active. Because of the wickedness uf the
place. Paul left during the second year.
Everett Shannaherger. a native of the wild and wooly west. came to the
school to improve. hut the improvement soon liecaine So painful that he
had to return to the western wilds.
A tall. light complexioned. awkward, and very religious specimen arrived
from Palestine. This was Yernon Harshman who tarried with us for three

years after which he departed with a full head and a heavy heart.
The first girl to enter the institution was Mahelle 'l'aylor, a little Chinese
girl whose parents live in llong Kong on the hanks of the heautiful Yangtze
liiang. She could never understand the linglish language hut always ex-
pressed herself hy saying "tl llang 1 P." She finally hecame discouraged and
went hack to China.
lilefore any others could leave. a photographer was employed to take the
accompanying picture and thus preserve for posterity. the charming counte-
nances which otherwise would have hecome only a thing of hlessed memory.
Nelson Conihs. as the picture shows, helonged to the XYyandottes, a very
indolent and self-satisfied trihe. lle was fond uf sports and a great admirer
of the fair sex. lle spent most of his time lishing. hunting, and raising
water melons. Finally he moi ed his residence to the sunny south. heing lured
there hy the charms of a Creole lady.
Helen Rodocker. a girl from Honolulu, remained with the school for
four years. She was a famous dancer and a lover of gaudy colors, She
contemplates finishing her studies in ltaly.
Lee Rothenherger was a very self confident gentleman from Allentown.
l'a. Une can see hy his picture that he was a cute looking specimen al-
though very small for his size. llis amhition was to hecome a great financier.
ljorotllj' Clark, a young lady from France, came to the United States to
study linglish. You can ohserve that she was huilt for dancing. very genial
of disposition and fond of society.
Glenn Mitchell came from Ireland to study agriculture. llis picture
is omitted hecause it would not stand inspection. Ile is medium in size.
hut heavy in weight and hig headed with a natural inclination towards sports.
Alton Troxel came from japan. ,llis picture is the very image of him. He
was so trustworthy that anyone contemplating going ahroad could safely
leave all sweethearts in his care.
A young man named lilmer llricker arrived from Arahia expecting to
find gold growing on trees hut to his great surprise found the trees hare and
decided to take shelter in the school. XYhen he smiled he smiled all over.
XX'ith the exception of heing mischievous, he was a Hood hoy.
llerhert Ruch is a descendent of the Dutch. Ile also came here to study
agriculture. llis picture gives a good idea of his looks and actions. He
was kept in school hy the attractions of a certain lfreshman girl.

Grace VVillian1s, another little French girl, came here to show the girls
how to dress, but she found the Mulberry girls so far advanced that she had
to take a course in school to reform.
Leona Smith came all the way from Halifax to get a husband, but finding
only one to her mind, she decided to wait till he got through school.
Last of all came Charles from the land of jazz near the Fiji Islands.
On account of his surroundings he has never been able to settle down. Day
by day he would dance, but what did it amount to?
Altogether it is likely that no more interesting or varied group of the
animal kingdom has been assembled under one roof since the famous ride in

Social activities in this high school have heen reduced to a minimum
in the last few years. There are two causes for this situation. ln the first
place. the school does not encourage mid-week parties: and then hasket hall
takes the Friday evenings for the greater part of the year. As a result.
there remain only a few social affairs for special occasions.
Each .lunior Class is expected to give a reception for the Seniors and
the Faculty. The present Senior Class gave this reception in the Red Heirs
Hall the evening of April ll. 1922. The hall was artistically decorated in
the class colors consisting of pink. green and white. A short program was
given, followed hy games and a light lunch. Then all who cared to dance
were permitted to do so. Thus a very pleasant evening was enjoyed hy all.
lt has heen the CHSIUITI of the class since entering high school to hold
an annual Lahor Day picnic. Most of these picnics have heen held near
Yyvyandotte. hut this year the class went to Dunhar Park. After supper they
went to Frankfort to attend a show.
Un Halloween. a Sophomore-Seniiir party was given hy Herhert Miller.
Cin this occasion a ghost admitted the guests to the house. which was ap-
propriately decorated with corn. jack-o-lanterns. etc. :Xfter all had arrived
they were guessed and unmasked. Games were played. fortunes told. re-
freshments served and a good time enjoyed.
These few affairs constitute the main social activities of the Senior Class.
whose attention has heen given chiefly to other matters.
"Those who would enjoyment gain. must find it in the purpose they pur-
sue." Mrs. Hale
He that spends all his life in sport is like one who wears nothing hut
fringes and eats nothing hut sauces." Fuller
"lf all the years were holidays.
To sport would he as tedious as to work.
Hut when they seldom CUIUC. they wished-for come.
.-Xnd nothing pleaseth hut rare accidents."

great relief. At any rate I decided to watch his proceedings when the day
The day rolled around at last. My friend went to town bright and
early in his Ford. l followed right along on my one-lunged motorcycle. The
town was in an uproar. lt seemed that during the night a band of men had
scoured the surrounding country and had driven off all the cows and hogs.
They were having a big slaughter and were packing the meat away for
winter. Our neighbor recognized one of his cows and trled to recover the
meat. but Mr. Townsman knocked him on the head and he lay quiet for about
fifteen minutes. lYhen he had risen and was brushing the dirt from his
clothes he was knocked down and run over by a drunk man driving a lford.
This time my friend lay longer and l had some time ltr look around.
liveryone who owed the storekeeper a grudge was breaking out the
glass or carrying out goods. Une merchant was taking a shot at all who were
not customers. The theaters and other places of amusement were closed
and well guarded.
By this time my friend was on his feet again and had started for the
sidewalk when he was narrowly missed by a speeding auto which killed a
man and a little boy who were just ahead of him, l imagined that by this
time my friend was thinking some of going home. but he went into a boot-
legging establishment to bolster up his spirits. He ordered something and
while waiting for it saw another man drink some and fall dead. That was
enough. My neighbor decided that he did not want anything. He w as
now sick and tired of "freedom" and was ready to go home.
He looked for his machine and found that some one had driven it ol-li
the bridge into the river. l could not land my motorcycle anywhere so we
walked home together. On the way we passed groups of Fighting men and
any number of them were stretched out in the gutter. Xow and then sivlllc
one got shot. Altogether we were lucky to get home alive.
:X sicker man than my friend you never saw in all your life. He had
enough and I have never since heard him complain of unjust laws.
Now whenever we think that some law is unjust or benefits some special
set of people, let us stop and think what this country would be without laws.
Every law that we have has a good reason for being on the statute books.

ported to the parents and are placed on permanent record the same as the
other school grades.
The result of this year's vvork has been highly gratifying and the Mul-
berry l"ulwlic School may justly he proud of this accomplishment, for there
are very fevv public schools in the state vvhich offer a course in Bible Study
to all the grades. Numerous inquiries received indicate more than a local
interest in the vvork and it is probable that other schools will soon be offering
The success of the experiment has been due ltr the local ministers, who
took the initiative in the vvorkg to Mr. Xleidner, who as trustee, supported
the plang to the special teachers who donated their time to the cause. and to the
regular teachers. vvho gave a place on the daily program for such study.

Lizzie, our adopted daughter. our only source of pleasure, lives as most
girls of her age. in a little house of her own in the corner of the yard. Had
she in her early days displayed some of the characteristics uf her younger
sisters, she probably would now live nearer the house, if not sleep and eat
right under the same roof with us.
Although her quarters are somewhat removed from ours, nevertheless
she is very near and dear to us. NYith her rattle brains and iron constitution,
Lizzie is nothing less than a full fledged V723 flapper. l say this because she
covers her natural complexion with powder and paint, and dresses just within
the bounds of the law. Some days she goes very thinly clad above the waist
line and is very careless about protecting herself from the weather.
This carelessness has undermined her iron constitution so that she is far
from being a perfect specimen. Recently she had a stroke of apoplexy and
was almost run over before we could get her off the street. llut that is not
the worst: she has developed palpitation and leakage of the heart and some-
times has terrible coughing spells accompanied with spitting of blood. Our
family physician says that she needs a stimulant during' the cold weather
and prescribes alcohol regardless of the Yolstead Act. This stimulant with
pep tablets taken in water. gives temporary relief, but she is such a nervous
little thing and constantly treinbles so that we some times fear that she may
have St. Yitus Dance. Some of her ailments are the result of parental
neglect in baby-hood. Coming from a large family. she was naturally poorly
dressed and soon had to shift for herself. Undue exposure and a poor circula-
tory system have resulted in a ball complexion. Her skin peels off easily and
she frequently has boils. Her eyes grow dim for lack of tears. and it is neces-
sary for her to wear heavy glasses. She could hardly survive if it were not
for our constant oversight and the doctor's care. It takes lots of money to
feed and care for her, but nevertheless she is our darling daughter.
Her physical ailments are not her only defects. Vtihile not exactly im-
moral, she sometimes does not know how to act in good society. The first
of last week as we were going down town to a show, she cut quite a caper.
XVe were hurrying past a large garage when all at once she spied a lot uf
well dressed males. Among them were lflill Packard. Harry Stutz, 'lim
Cadillac. and Dodge brothers. They sure tooli her eye and she began at once
to show her flapper tendencies by trying to flirt with them. ln her excite-
ment she hissed and stnttered while the powder and paint from her over-
heated face became plainly visible. She dropped her vanity case, and her
inflated heels lowered as she shimmied among them in great confusion.
Her friends stood like petrified oaks as she shook her bobbed and irregular
mohair in their faces.
Finally I got her by, but dared not reprove her for fear of irritating

her. She has such an awful temper and quickly warms up at trifles. Not
long ago while on a vacation trip she broke her fan, which she always car-
ries with her. This little accident quickly aroused her temper. Oh how she
did boil! :Xt first we could not guess what had gone wrong. but upon re-
moving her hood the trouble was revealed. The fan was soon mended and
her temper gradually subsided. Un this trip she took more than one stub-
born spell. She would sometimes stop on a hill and refuse to budge without
our helpg she would refuse to cross a stream and would shy at passing
Although in many ways she is a disgusting kid, I still have hopes of im-
proving her make-up and character so that she can steer her way thru the
streets and alleys of life in such a manner as to make anybody proud to call
her his own.
GRACE XVI LLIAMS.
The Young People of Today
Some people worry a lot about the young people of today, saying that
they are going to the dogs: that they smoke. dance. and think of nothing but
a good time: that they are always going to a show or some other place of
amusement, but never think of going to churchg that they won't work. but
play most of the time even in school.
Now the young people of the present are probably no worse than boys
and girls fifty years ago. The people who are always finding fault with pres-
ent young people hardly ever think of what they did when they were young.
They forget the pranks that they used to playg the initials that they carved
on the seats at schoolg their behavior in churchg the way they chewed tobacco
and spat on the floor or on the stove: the fights they had over nothingg
the parties with the kissing-games: and the dances that nearly always ended
in a fight. These things are all forgotten while the habits of boys and girls
today seein awful.
In many ways young people are really better than ever before. Their
amusements are better than they used to be. Instead of so many parties with
the "Needles liyeu. "Tap", and other kissing games. now there are basket-
ball and the movies. where the old and the young meet in public entertain-
mnt. These and the public library take the place of the old-fashioned saloon.
The modern dances are certainly no worse than the old dances accom-
panied by booze and usually ending in a fight.
The youth today have better manners than ever before. Une seldom sees
young men fight or take pride in their ability to abuse and swear. One can

see a great difference in the behavior at church. They no longer substitute
for sacred hymns such parodies as "Have I a Shoulder of a Hoss, a Quarter
of a Rami' or "The Calf Has Never Yet Been Sold." This was once a com-
mon practice of boys at church. Ministers no longer find it necessary to ree
prove young men and women for disturbing church services.
There is also great improvement in conduct at school, Pupils now sel-
dom throw paper wads. carve initials, spit on floor and walls. or fight among
themselves or with the teachers. The fly leaves of the text books are no
longer filled with such verse as:
"Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet.
So are you."
"Sure as the vine grows round the stump,
You are my little sugar lump."
"lf you love me as l love you,
No knife can cut our love in two."
Such pranks as are now played at Halloween were once much more com-
mon. Tick-tacking. stopping up chimneys, piling trash on porches, calling
people out of bed at night. and tearing up water-melon patches were once
quite generally practiced by young men.
Of course our young people are not perfectg but if the good fathers and
mothers could only remember the shortcomings of their own youth, young
people today would appear in a more favorable light.

Agriculture in the high school is limited to one year. This necessitates
a somewhat general course consisting of the main points formerly given
more extensively in a two years course. Each month of the school year de-
voted to a different type of work.
September was spent in studying wheat sowing. and the selection and
care of seed corn. Field work in the estimation of acre yield was touched
Qctober's work was with soils. Temperature under different conditions
of slope. color. moisture. and depth was considered. During this month
soils were also tested for absorption, capillary action. acid. and nitrogen.
Problems in mixing of fertilizers were studied.
ln November and December the work turned to animal husbandry.
Horses and cattle were the main animals studied at this time. The class
went on several trips to judge different types of horses and cattle. The class
also went on a trip to Purdue Lvniyersity where they studied animals of the
same breeds but under different conditions. llere they yisited the stock
barns and studied the care of the animals. The latter part of December was
spent in the testing of milk and cream.
January was spent in studying hogs and sheep. The main breeds of
these animals were taken up and studied as to class. country where they
originated. and the main parts of the animals. Model hog houses were de-
signed and built during this month.
Foods for certain animals were studied during February. Attention was
giyen to the amounts of certain foods required by the animal body. and prob-
ms w r wor'e o te ermine correc rf ions 'or I ri tllll C s. iortg

crops were considered as to their special uses and proper time of feeding.
March was the month for the study of crop rotation. treatment of seed
oats. and a rather extensive study of the corn ear.
April was spent in studying poultry breeds, care. housing. and feeding.
Egg candling, preservation, and incubation were studies in full. Model
poultry houses were constructed and together with the hog houses were
placed on exhibition at the close of school.
Although only one year is spent in the study of agriculture. it is yery
helpful to the high school boy or girl. This is especially true for those who
are planning to take up farming as their life work.

.-X carefully planned course xvas given In the girls uf the seventh. eighth.
and ninth year classes.
The seventh grade did snme cnnking and studied frnm the adnpted text.
The eighth grade used the lalmratnry inethnd in studying recipes. fnnd
values. and the underlying principles nf cranking.
During the first semester the Freshmen girls studied cranking and pre-
pared their mvn lunches each day. ixiost uf the material vvas furnished hy
the girls themselves. lfly this methnd they learned the prnper fund ratinn in
adclitinn tu getting experience in cranking and serving. ln Nnvenilmer this
class served a three-cnnrse Thanksgiving dinner tu the Seninrs. lfruit
cncktail cnnstituted the first cnnrse. The second cnurse cnnsisted ul. turkey.
gravy, cranherry ice. mashed pntatnes. sxveet pntatnes. and Parker llnuse
rolls. The last cnurse included fruit salad and angel fnnd cake.
The last semester vvas devoted tn sewing and reed vvnrk, The seventh
grade girls tnnk up light vvnrk in sewing. learning hmv Im make the different
kinds nf stitches. and hmv tri finish SCZIIHS. They also did snme fancy vvnrk.
The eighth grade girls vvere given plain sevving. They made a fevv
small articles and studied patterns, economical methods nf cutting grinds, and
the principles of design. They too did some fancy vvnrk.

The Freshmen girls were taught plain sewing, principles of design. and
textiles used in making the different kinds of sewing materials. ln connec-
tion with this. they made a visit to an old-fashioned carpet luuin in the tnwn.
The class also studied reed wurk and, with the help nf the manual training
lmys. made some excellent flour and tahle lamps.
The manual training cnnsists nf fnur types nf wnrk. mechanical draw-
ing, shup wurk, lathe wnrk, and finishing.
ln the mechanical drawing the pupil draws the iiliject that he is giving tu
make. This serves asa guide tn wnrk lwy and gives the pupil an idea nf what
he is to do.
ln the shnp the seventh grade lwys make nnly small articles and learn
tu handle and sharpen tnuls. They are taught a little alinut facing pieces.
The wurk nf the eighth grade is a little niure advanced. ln this class
the huys. in additinn to making articles, are taught hnw tn finish and huw
tu compute the cust uf the material used.
The Freshmen are allnwed inure freednm in the chuice uf their wnrk.
They select the articles that they wish tn make and place inure emphasis
un th finishing.
The lathe was added tn the equipment last year. lt is used hy the sev-
enth grade chiefly tu learn the use uf the tools, The nther classes have made
a numher uf articles including pedestals, gulwlets. lmases fur lamps. etc.
The stains usually used in the finishing department are walnut, mahug-
any, light and dark oak, and natural finish. llnth sand and paste fillers are
used. The students have their chnice of varnish nr shellac in finishing.
At the clnse of the schunl year an exhihit of all the wnrk is held su that
the puhlic can see what has lieen dune.
The whule course is planned tn give the pupil huth manual and mental
training while teaching him the prnper care and use ul tuuls.

This is Mr. Ritenour's third year as coach of the
high school team. The fact that four of last year's
team were seniors, made it necessary for him to
start with new material for this year. In spite of
this handicap, he has developed real playing ability
in the boys.
MYREL HUMPHREY C'Hump"j
This man "Hump" is some flashy worker. "XYho
said so?" just come around when he is in opera-
tion and see for yourself. The bigger they come,
the harder the fall. Yery few forwards could get
by him, and dribble! Uh, Boy! He goes like a
streak. Every year in every way he is growing bet-
ter. Myrel has two years yet and should make them
all respect him.
GLENN MITCHELL C-Fun", -'sm
Glenn is a senior and a player of high rank. He
is a good floor worker and a heady player. He was
made captain this year because of his fighting spirit.
XYhen "Fun" winds up, the old net begins to whip.

The sectional basket ball tournament this year was held at Frankfort
March ld and Sd. Thirteen teams competed and at every game the gymna-
sium was crowded.
Mulberry drew Colfax. one of the strong teams uf the county and conse-
quently was defeated in the first game by a score of -lf to 8. The Mulberry
team sunered greatly on account of Mitchell's being unable to Inlay.
The Friday games were Hot very good, because the strong teams had
all drawn weak teams so that the contests was one sided. The highest score.
o5-o, was made by jefferson in the game with Rocklield.
The games on Saturday were all good because the teams were better
matched. Frankfort had the honor of running up the highest score of the
day. 211-S. in a game with Colfax. The Frankfort-Jefferson game was a
thriller, lt was fast from the beginning, but by hard lighting, Frankfort li-
nally nosed out a ZW-22 victory, The last game was played by Frankfort and
Seircleyille. lt was a fast game resulting in a score of 2.2-li in favor of

IHYI' VLARK XYRITES
Some of the older Citizens may
hold in memory an image of a
little black headed girl on the
streets of Mulberry twenty years
ago. That was Iilot Clark. now
a famous missionary in Autralia.
The Anti-Pipe Smoking Society
is trying' to persuade her to come
back to the States and do some
campaign work in behalf of tem-
perance. lf they succeed, we
mal' before a great while have
the pleasure of hearing her lec-
ture. ln the meantime we must
be contented with a number of
contributions from her pen. The
tirst one follows:
l have seen many different
places since I left Mulberry
nineteen years ago. Perhaps you
would he interested In hear ot'
some of my experiences. I came
several other mission-
went directly to the
mission where we belong. lYhen
we tirst arrived I felt very near-
ly like hacking out and going'
hack home, for it sure was a for-
lorn looking country. XVhen I
saw the people l thought "Xl'ell,
Good Nigrhtl' They were the
kind that you read about,
wild, black and dirty and very
feyv ot' them could speak any
English. just those who had at-
tended the mission schools ,Xf-
ter l had been here a few weeks
l became more adapted to the
plaee and did not mind it so
much. As I said before. we were
sent directly to the missions
where we were to take Charge.
In this one Ilia-Te were about
sixty children altogether, some
ot' them barely old enough to
talk and others twenty In twen-
ty-five years old but still could
not speak a single English word.
Our task was indeed a very hard
one, but we set right to work
and our efforts do not seem to
have been entirely fruitless for
all now speak English fairly well
and try to do all that we ask
them to do. They also seem to
like us very much, indeed they
seein almost to Worship us, look-
ing upon us as some divine guide
or soinethingr. IVell, l must get
back to work. Vl'ill 4-ontribute
other articles soon.
The biggest t'ominen4'ement ev-
er held in Mulberry was held
in the community hall last 1Ved-
nesday evening when fifty-six
Seniors of the local hiah sf-hool
I'el'f?lYetl diplomas. The sweet-
ness uf the girl graduates tore-
told great happiness. while the
stoic- attitude of the boys dis-
played but little fear, saying'
to the world. as it were. "'We
have met the rlount-ed and pow-
dered enemy and she is ours,"
The main feature of the evening
was the masterful address by
Dr. Yernnn Harshman, ll. lv., LL.
Il. of New York City, His sub-
ject was "All Ready! btep on It.
Lt-t's Goi' ln this address he
compared the life of our youth
to the experiences of a 19-13
ilivver. lt was a great inspira-
tional address to say the least.
After a few sad hut appropriate
remarks, the diplomas were
presented by Prof. Carl Leiben-
auth. superintendent of the lineal
Madame Itodot-ker. whose ad
appears elsewhere in this issue,

not meet her regular dana'-ing

in the safe door. He was as us-

sweeping out the safe and when
coming' out, the door from some
unknown cause was swung shut
and caught his handsome beard.
Of course Lee jerked backward,
but it was too late. for the beard
was torn completely nit. The un-
fortunate victim was rushed to
his home and Dr. Nelson Combs
was summoned. Although a very
serious case. Doc thinks that he
can pull him through in a
month or two. Mr. Rothenber-

The rect-nt high waters remind

Qld Time Schools
Some time ago the Pathfinder published a letter from the school board
of an Ohio town showing the opinion of a century ago. The letter dated
1826 reads as follows:
"You are welcome to the school house to debate all proper questions in,
but such things as railroads and telephones are impossibilities and rank
infidelity: there is nothing in the word of God about them. If God designed
that his intelligent creatures should travel at the frightful speed of l5 miles
an hour, He would have clearly foretold it through His holy prophets. It
is a device of Satan to lead immortal souls down to hell."
There was no lack of Puritanism in the songs then used in school. In
Fishers Youths' Primer of lSl7 is found the following song:
"l in the burying place may see
Graves shorter there than I.
From death's arrest no age is free,
Young children too may die.
My God, may such an awful sight
Awakening be to me!
Oh that by early grace l might
For death prepared be."
The teaching in the public schools has often been a target for public
criticism. For a long time the schools were considered ungodly if they
taught that the earth is round. The story is told of an early teacher who
applied to a school board for a job and was asked what he taught concerning
the shape of the earth. lie made himself safe by saying that he was able tu
teach either the flat system or the round system.
