" Je.-SiN Petersen SENIOR CLASS HISTORY It was on a bright September day, four long years ago, when our Principal, the late S. A. Potts, called for candidates for the 1925 football team. One hundred and thirteen people turned out by far the largest squad ever enrolled in Muscatine High School. We chose Irving Neitzel for captain and quarterback; the rest of the back field w ere Alice Ait ken (vice president) , William Kistler (treasurer), and Esther Robbins (sec- retary). During this season our team managed to hold their own against our friendly enemies, the teachers, and we won out against the upperclass men when w e held our party at the Armory. The next year w e started out determined to win the championship. When the call for candidates came, ninety-eight veterans reported. With such a nucleus as this, w e could not help making a record. For the back field " Bob " Lew is was elected captain and quarterback and still holds that position. " Fob " put up such a good fight that he was chosen by the entire school to be Athletic Editor of the Auroran. The halves were Pauline Smith (vice president), and Jean Petersen (treasurer), w hile Eugene Kintzel held down the fullback position. The class party this year was a success, even though our enemies, the upper classmen, tried to steal the " eats. " We came to school in the year 1923-24 resolved to win the honor in everything We again chose " Bob " Lev is for captain and quarterback, " Jo " Hanley (vice president), and Harvey AJlbee (secretary), were the halves, and Dan Cotter held dow n the fullback position (treasurer). In our many victories those given honorable mention, by being placed on the Auroran Staff, w ere : Irving Neitzel, Ruth Stirlen, William Kistler, and Robert Mark. Josephine Hanley also w on distinction and represented M. H. S. in declam. We chose " DO YOUR DUTY, COME WHAT MAY " , for our motto, and Emerald Green and Silver Grey for our colors. The greatest event of that year was the feast held at the Y. W. C. A. after our " Turkey Day Game " , usually know n as the Junior-Senior banquet. Again the mighty class of ' 25 entered M. H. S. determined to " kill off " all their opponents. With " Bob " as Capain and Pilot, w e w ere almost sure of a victorious year, but when " Acey " Aitken and " Rosy " Daniels were elected to assist him, we were positive of it. To begin w ith, we put tw elve men on the school football team: Captain " Eun " Rabe- deaux, " Bob " Lewis, " Poob " Kautz, " Ray " Werner, " Tony " Kammerer, " Buddy " Gain°s, " Wibby " McClain, " Ed " Weber, Hershey, " Russ " Bandy. " Verge " Bloom, and Bill Burke. Others in our class who belong to the Letter Club, are H. AUbee, Stone, Fordham and " Fat " Barnard. " Fat " is our only four-year football nian and he was last year ' s Captain. " Bob " Lew is and " Bun " Rabedeaux w ere basketball letter men from the class of 25. On the Auroran Staff we were certainly in great numbers. Harvey Allbee, (Editor- in-Chief), William Kistler, (Assistant Editor), " Bob " Mark. (Advertising), with Alma Kindler as an assistant, Esther Robbins. (Circulation Manager). Ruth Stirlen, (Literary), and Marion Galpin (Art). Again the class of ' 25 showed its stuff by putting one of its members, Esther Rob- bins, on the All-State team of girls ' basketball. Roxie Dew eese. Captain of the Champions of Southeastern Iowa, is another member of ' 2 5. This is Roxie ' s fourth year at basketball. Gladys McCune was a very important cog in the machinery of our Champs, and of course she belongs to the graduating class. After doing such things in the activities of our school, and showing what we could do, we stepped back and let the Juniors give us a banquet. Then we jumped back into the limelight by presenting to the community our class play, " Coming Out of the Kitchen. " After that we enteh-tained ourselves by having a class picnic. And then came the beginning of the end the Baccalaureate Sermon, next Class Day. Commencement, and finally the the Alumni Banquet. We are received into the great Alumni, but we will always remain the Great Class of 1925.

SENIOR CLASS PROPHECY Mrs. Vaughn HersKey, (nee Jean Peterson) loitered at breakfast one bright spring morning in 1940, her gaze wandering over the spacious grounds of their beautiful country place, where they had resided since the phenomenal success of the popular breakfast food, " Hershey ' s Health Hay. " She saw the Western Union telegraph boy, Cecil Hopkins, jr., swing in at her gate, and a few minutes later the butler brought her the telegram. Open- ing it, she read the following: Dear Jean: Will arrive in Fairport on the Firefly at 9:30 Friday, 13th. RUTH. " That is today and it ' s almost time for the train. That will just give James time to meet her at the station. " Fifteen minutes later as her car came rolling into the grounds, she rushed dow n the steps and clasped in her arms her old school mate, Ruth Stirlen, now wife of Dr. Irving Nietzel, famous nerve specialist. " It ' s so good to see you again. 1 have seen so few of the old class since I left school. Whom have you met? What do you know? I feel ready for a bit of gossip right now. " " Oh! so many questions right off the bat w hen I haven ' t been here two minutes. Weil, to begin with, 1 met Forrest Fordham on the train going to Davenport, where he expected to sell a big o der to Clarence Harper, who has a hotel there. As you know- Forrest is traveling for Wallace Nyweide ' s cheese factory in Kansas City, Mo.; and, by the way, Forrest told me that Esther Bunn w as running a beauty parlor in the same city and that she w as making a fortune on her famous Beauty Buns. William Kistleh is making use of his artistic ability by painting the new Paris faces on her patrons. They have quite a partnership. ' " As they walked to the house, Ruth said, " But you know about some of the old class. 1 don ' t want to do all the talking. " " Oh! yes. I hear about some of them quite often. Charles Kautz is running a doughnut factory in Muscatine; he sells the holes to Ruth Snider, w ho is operating a reducers ' school in Illinois City. LeRoy Barnard and Russell Pandy are running a toy factory in Fruit land. Mary Howe is their typist and bookkeeper. Their specialty is mamma -dolls. " " Speaking of factories, that reminds me that Eleanor Vanatta and Ethel Cassidy are the ow ners of a new bottle factory; baby bottles, you know . " " No? Eunice Chamberlain and Erma Orris are running a factory on the Muscatine Island to extract honey from w atermelon seeds. " " That reminds me of the time I was in Denver. 1 saw Floyd Boney. He is running a bus line up to Pike ' s Peak. I talked with him for a while and he told nne that Victor Miller and Charles DeCamp were operating a silver mine near there. While I was there, 1 visited Lillian McCillivray ' s Rest Cure sanitarium, and met Ethelyn Tucker. She was just recovering from a nervous breakdown caused by a fall from a donkey down into a canyon. She had been in a party of tourists who -were making friends with the wild animals. She said that Margaret McFadden and Flora May Fisher w ere in the party. " " Oh! Ruth, of course you have heard all about the wonderful lawyer Harvey Allbee has turned out to be? " " No, I have not heard, what has he done to make himself so famous? " " 1 might as well tell you the whole story and let you in on all of the news. Darothea Dankert has become c uite a vamp. She is accused of the killing of Stuart Ogilvie, the great artist. Harvey is her lawyer and it looks as if she would be acquitted. " " Fine ; I ' m glad to hear it. Have you any old papers in w hich I can read the account? " " Robert Mark is reporting the trial very interestingly in the Herald, and there may be some in tonight. " Did you have a nice trip this summer in California? You only wrote me a line, you old bear. " " Ruth, 1 had a lovely trip. Heard about some of the old class, all along the way. Ruth Bilkey married Raymond Werner and they are living in Flagstaff, Arizona. Sanford Schmaltz was teaching for the summer term in the Normal School there. He ' s a High School Principal in Louisville, Kentucky. And, oh, yes, Edna Belle Shepard runs a big pickle farm for Heinz in the reclaimed land of southern Arizona; and back at Jefferson City, Mo., was Dwight Stone, a chiropractor. Guess whom we met in his w aiting room Jewell Schroeder. She and Edna Schultz run a diamond mine in Rhodesia. Edna w rites essays on the uses of diamonds and Jewell bosses the miners. She was pretty well tired out. " " 1 see you have a radio. Does it work well? 1 love them; they are so much company. " " Yes, it works finely. Vaughn got it from Burnell Rabedeaux, who works for the Edw ard Speith Radio Electrical Company. Just yesterday 1 listened in at noon to hear New York and you can ' t imagine whom I heard speak — Dan Cotter. " " Yes, I have heard that he has become a great orator; he is famous all through the country. " " We are going to listen in on Chicago tonight, as the paper says that Wilma Baker of the Grand Roar Opera Company and Marion Galpin, playing an organ recital, re- caste d from Pittsburgh, are on the air. " " 1 have heard that Eugene Kintzle is playing for the Queen of the Shetland Islands; and 1 have had the pleasure of hearing William Wellons and Herbert Bendle playing in the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. " " Have you seen any good plays lately? I saw one the other day written by Alma Kindler called ' India Ink. ' Frances Otto played the leading role. " " The last play I saw was in the east, but 1 do not remember the name. I do know that Alice Aitken and Pauline Smith w ere playing in it. It was a comedy, and 1 must say that it w as very good. You know that Frances Brandt and Gladys Sissel are dancing in the chorus of the Zeigspielt Follies. They say that they make quite a good team. Harriet Steninger and Anna Rosenburg are producing a play; I did not even know that they were writers. " " While I w as in California I saw Robert Fairbanks making his new picture, ' Fairy Banks. ' You will have to see it w hen it comes. I also saw Edward Diercks and Carleton Gaines. They are raising sour grapes and red cocoanuts on their farm in Pasadena. ' " Excuse me a minute, Ruth, while 1 go into the den. 1 have a letter I want you to read. " Upon her return, she found Ruth reading a book which had been lying on the table. " You want to read that book. It is a scream. Forrest Bechmann is such a good w riter. That is his latest book. " " 1 did not know that he wrote books. This one sounds very interesting. Oh! the letter is from Shirley Schomberg, and from Florida. What has she to say? " " Read it and find out. " " She says that Robert Strajack is a Doctor of Bibical Research, and his assistant is Omri Taylor. . . . They have gone to Egypt to read Hieroglyphics. . . . Oh! Jean listen! Andrew Johnson is assisting Arthur Murray in teaching dancing lessons, can you beat that? . . . She saw Gilmore Shenk the other day. . . . and he was just back from a trip to South America, where he has been tracing a new species of butterfly. It is just like him, isn ' t it? . . .Vincent Duggan and Charles Urdangen are running a new drygoods store in Tampa . . . and she has just bought curtains for lier new home there. . . . Oh! listen! Of course you all remember Norman Daniels Well he is now on the President ' s new baseball team. How natural! She has not written to me for a long time, but the last letter said that she had just run across Roxie DeWeese and Esther Robbins, coaches in the College of Athletics at Palm Beach. Do you remember them in the Crawfords- ville game at Columbus Junction? Oh, that reminds me 1 have heard that Ballard Tipton ' s plans have been accepted for the new high school building, and they include a L MJRORAN ' 25 1 marvelous gym. Ground will be broken for the building on Commencement Day. " How perfectly lovely I We shall see him then while you are here. We were in Muscatine just a week ago Saturday. Ardath Mann and Lovenia Mockmore are teaching there. Gladys McCune is the new basketball coach and it looks as if they ought to have a winning team next year. Don ' t you want to unpack your suitcases? We can talk up there just as w ell. " During the process of unpacking, Jean reached into a suitcase and drew out a gown and holding it up exclaimed, " What a lovely gownl Ruth, where did you get it? " 1 bought it at Lillian Ferguson and Vera Negus ' s Fifth Avenue Style Shop. Clayton Reeves is their designer and Hazel Rittenhouse and Lola Morse are models. " " When were you in New York? You didn ' t say anything to me about being there. " " About a month ago. Had a nice trip, too. 1 saw the Hudson River bridge that Warner Bridges built. You know he is building them out of rubber and egg shells. They are said to be great; and I met Leroy Thomas; he is a broker by day and sings for the Salvation Army at night. I visited the Woolw orth building and there 1 met Leo Albers, who is running one of the elevators. And I met Mary Jenkins, she is working in the Woolw orth home office. " " Some of the old class have got into politics. Pearl Hank has just introduced the new bill into Congress to try and ' make all bachelors marry you know she is also con- nected with the Old Maids Home. Kenneth Schreurs is in the Senate and is said to be doing a lot of fillibustering to defeat it. He isn ' t married. " " Yes, Elma Keller is now governor of Texas and they say that she makes a good one; and the President has just sent Harold Tiedeman to the Philippine Islands to put down a riot. They killed their last governor; I hope Harold has good luck. " " William Burke is the owner of the famous ice cream factory at Nome, Alaska. He has w orked up quite a big business, freezing it in the back yard at night and sleeping all the next day. " " Hazel Brei and Ethel Khone are missionaries on the Fiji Islands, trying to teach the natives how to keep attractive homes. Eunice Lake has published a book on the same subject and they are using it in their work. Smell my new perfume. 1 bought it from Anna Havemann. She is traveling for Rhea Criger. Her factory is in New Mexico. She gets her flow ers from Clarence Kindler ' s farm in Arizona. " " Vaughn was over to see the big league games in Chicago and he said that Virgil Bloom is the star player on the Cubs. Edw ard Weber plays w ith them, too, 1 don ' t know w hat position. Oh yes, he said, too, that William Lease had a perfect drove of boys wearing badges ' Bill ' s Boys, ' selling peanuts and crackerjack in the crow d. Say, do you work cross word puzzles? We do all the time. The hardest ones that I ever got were Harold Cross ' s Cross Word Puzzles. They a,re terrible I He made quite a fortune on them. " " Does Robert Hahn run the wholesale company in Muscatine yet? " " Yes. Do you know, we have gossiped about the class and we haven ' t said a word about our president? " " You mean Robert Lewis? Why he is manufacturing hip boots in Butte. Montana. " " I wish that we could all get together for a reunion again, for we sure were the most w onderful class old M. H. S. ever graduated.

They finished the regular program without a defeat and then received further honors by winning the sectional and district tournaments. The girls won the first two tournaments of the three which they attended. The championship w on at the sectional tournament at Stanw ood netted them the right to rep- resent M. H. S. at the district meet at Columbus Junction. After playing off a tie, as champions of Southeastern Iowa they w ent to the state tournament at Perry. There the Muskies were defeated two games out of three in spite of their clever playing. The state title resulted in the joint championship of Ida Grove and Aplington. The girls have brought home more honors than any other teams have ever won for M. H. S. and they have laid the cornerstone for a glorious future in Musky athletics.

Money doesn ' t make character but in that part of living which is material it is the counterpart of character. It ' s what you save, not what you earn, that counts.

Your dollars in this bank give ou that power. MUSCATINE STATE BANK A good store in which to buy docs not necessar- ily carry the larg est stocks.
