Farewell, farewell to M. H. S., We bid you sad adieu ; We ' ll laud her praises to the sky Wherever we may be. In East, in West, in North and South, Is found our faithful band ; To colors, Purple and Old Gold, Ve pledge both heart and hand. c 3 i I MX !a -AA %vfiifk ! ' av x y K - v CLASS HISTORY In 1923 a flock of greenhorns first became known on this terrestrial globe. Who thought that among this group the famous electrician, Braunwarth Halstead, would burst forth in full glory? Who thought there would be a second Kreisler in Thomas Beveridge, or a Paderewski in Verle Nietzel, a Galli Curci in Marie Van Tryfle, or a Sarah Bernhardt in Myrle Engel ? In April we Freshies under the iron hand of Deac Horst made our social debut at the Armory at a gay fiesta. That night little Leland Horst escorted Edwynne Felix home — such tiny tots to be dating. The Freshman year ended in June and social critics claimed it a flaming success. After such a very successful beginning, with a roaring determination these mighty youths with Ed. Willis as a leader pushed forward another step as with added dignity they attained the name of Sophomores. Not one event passed that school year that some intelligent Sophomore did not lend assistance. It was that year that we won the distinction of having the best class basketball in school, for we won over the noble Seniors and took them down a notch or two. Cupid entered into the spirit of these youths and courtship started — and how many young boys who had formerly bought only one ticket to the show now had to ask father for tw-o. This class also closed the season with a hop at the Woodman Hall, and here originated the courtship of Verle and Myrle, and Maxine and Bob. Ah! The year 1926 was honored by the presence of the honorable, dignified Juniors. Try to tell them anything — you couldn ' t! This mob of flaming youth was led by a second Lochinvar, Wilbur Umlandt. The All-School Party would not have been a success without our shining faces there. We furnished numerous representati ' es for the Honor Society — Mary Lotspeich, Paul Gross- klaus, Edwin Willis, Lois Bowser, Donald Branson, John Barger, Helene Haefner, and Mryle Engel. As Juniors again we took the class championship — this time from the Sophomores. We then were allowed to play the faculty team. The whole faculty tried to revive their school spirit, but alas! They were soon eating the dust from the speedy Juniors. We placed five good men on the team that year, " Tee, " John Barger, Glenn Ogilvie, " Herb " Valett, and Maynard Gray. They ' ll be World Champions — no foolin ' ! And did the year close with a bang! The most successful Junior-Senior banquet of the school ' s histor} ' was given by our class. And such orators as were found in the toasters, Wilbur, Tommy, Glenn, Myrle, and Virginia! Last, b ut not least. Seniors! As yet, no word has been discovered that could describe this band with Charles Bowker as the spokesman. Only Time will proclaim their success. We promise that many of their names shall flash on Broadway. Still others will govern the U. S. ; and ma be some will help run M. H. S. We had our Senior dignity offended by the Juniors when they deliberately beat us in the class championship finals. The fellows came right hack to show the school, and with the Juniors ' help captured the State Championship and also the Little Six Championship title. " Tee " led the fighting Mustangs to Chicago, only to be lowered to the consolation bracket, where they w-ere defeated in the second game. Again the Seniors were in the limelight at the All-School Party. President Charles Bowker and Marie Van Tryfle — Alice Harbaugh and Lyell Vanatta displayed their gracefulness in dances of 1492. Ah ! Seniors — the Leaders of Society — sponsored a charming cabaret party at the Eagle ' s De Luxe. Paul Whiteman ' s famous recording orchestra was present. Many prominent society leaders attended, namely — Countess and Count Lyell Vanatta, Duke Bowker, Princess Van Tryfle, and King Halstead. The Seniors then honored the Juniors with their presence at the customary banquet. Paul Grossklaus and Juliana Rumsey became seriously ill from eating rock-laden biscuits, and as usual Pauline and Ralph were late because Ralph swallowed his collar-button, and Pauline couldn ' t find her tennis shoe. The Play was a screaming success. It is rumored that the cast have been asked to appear on Broadway. Their decision will, of course, be announced later. Who fell into the lake at the Senior picnic? Can Violet and Mable swim? Like rocks! Maxine and Henrietta must be lovesick. They ate a whole dozen pickles. At the Baccalaureate Service Rev. Bentzinger of the First Methodist Church delivered the address, and for once everyone was serious. We Seniors displayed unusual talent on our most original class day program. We surely are gifted ! Alumni for the Seniors. Such a lowly life. They surely were proud of us. Why not? And then the grand finale — Commencement. We gathered for the last time as a class at the Armory. There were addresses, deep thoughts, congratulations, diplomas — and — our School Davs were over. 1» yh rl ■ml, h ■n ' .|. ' iJ.yv. t ' !l■ ' i .v . - v . S ■ — — - .... ■ ■ - . - . 4 i. 3 t 5 THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE When in the course of our Education, it becomes necessary for us Seniors to break away from the confinements which rank us with the Underclassmen and assmne our duties with the Other Great People of the World, the separate and higher stations to which our Superior Knowledge entitles us, a becoming respect to the opinions of those we leave behind us requires that we should proclaim the causes which impel us to the Graduation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all students are not created equal, that some are endowed with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Superiority, Privileges, and the Pursuit of Their Own Free Will. In order to secure these Rights we are now issuing our Protocol, to derive our just po ers without the Consent of the Governing Faculty. When a long train of abuses and insults, consistently pursuing their object of our Riddance shows their design to place us Seniors imder the Control of the Faculty, it is our Right, it is our Duty, to throw off such unbearable Restric- tions, and to provide our own bounds for our future security. Such has been the patient suffering of the Seniors, a nd such is now the need which forces them to change the past sentiment of Condescension. The history of the present class of 1927 is a history of repeated injuries and injustices, all aiming at the one object of establishing a monopoly over the Seiu ' ors. As an antidote for the above wrongdoing we demand these just and impartial Rights. To wit: Mary Bendle — to be a supertypist. Margaret Brannan — to get good grades. John Rarger — to have my temper. Edith Rerg — to stand up for myself. Lyle Bauguess — to be disagreeable. Lucile Roller — to drift along. Paul Bennett — to say little. Lois Bowser — to be like a little girl.

Little had I expected at gradua- , ticn that one of my classmates could accomplish such a great engineering feat as this — the 5 completion of a trans-Atlantic bridge from Plymouth Rock to the Rock of Gibraltar. ? This immense bridge, the eighth wonder of the world, was one mile wide, ten miles above the S level of the sea, stretching over the endless expanse of ocean, and was supported by platinum piers studded with diamonds. It was so dazzling that travelers wore rose-colored glasses to protect their eyes. The bridge proper was constructed of cut glass and on either side tovv ' ered sky scrapers of gigantic size. I jumped out of my new Overland " Spank-it " and hastened to the office of the builder and owner, Walter TeStrake. Frances Smith, secretary of the Corporation, informed me that " Tee " was in conference, but would gladly suspend business to see an old classmate. " Congratulations, old chap, on your splendid success, " I greeted him. He replied modestly, " Oh, I ' m beginning operations for an underground railroad to China now. " " About this bridge — what sort of accommodations shall I find? " " Everything from soup to nuts. And by the way, you ' ll meet some other members of the class of 1927 on your way across the pond. I made it a point to give preference in renting to them. " " Ever play basketball any more? " " No, I haven ' t time, but say, you knew Johnny Butler was Zip ' s successor as coach of the Little Muskies, and that they won the National Championship this year? And speaking of Chicago, did you know that Werner Diercks had invented a portable cannon for their protection while in Chicago? ' ' " No! But you knew that Maynard Gray had become an undertaker, didn ' t you? He must have received his inspiration that Sunday down on the sea wall, when he said, ' Burlington, this will learn you not to monkey with Muscatine. ' But if I ' m going to get to Mount Vesuvius in time to see Deac Horst wrestle in the Olympic games, I ' ve got to be going. " " Well, you want to watch your step on the bridge; the speed limit is 300 miles per hour and Tracy McKee is the deadliest motorcycle cop we ' ve ever had. " In front of an exclusive salon, bearing the sign " Lloyd Houvenagle, Modiste, " I saw a great commotion, in the center of which stood Harold Talkington, auctioneering the " Clampdownoner, " the first new-tone instrument on the air since the Caliaphone. I learned that this was another Muscatine specialty designed by Dorothy Holzhauer, and manufactured from clam shells. Lloyd was designing a gown for Mile. Bernice Reay, star in the opera " How Dry I Am. " Arline Eberling was modeling the gown for him. In one corner of the salon Kenneth Honts was conducting a course in gum-cracking, by the courtesy of the T. N. T. Gum Company. On the other side of the bridge, in the window of Alice Harbaugh ' s Bootery-, Lyle Rummery was decorating the knees of silk hosiery, and Elnora Othmer, his wife, was demonstrating them. Alice was a talented designer of select foot-gear for thousand leggers. A shadow flitted across the sky, causing a partial eclipse of the sun, and behold! an airplane gracefully descended, almost upon me. Harry Kern alighted, and I recognized Lois Bowser as pilot of the plane, but before I could come to my senses, she had gone. " Well, for good gravy, Harr ' Kern, what are you doing here? ' ' " I just blew in from Venus. I ' ve been up to John Barger ' s Beauty Parlor. He specializes in henna, and Paul Grossklaus is his assistant. He used to he the strong man in a circus, but he ' s retired and is now lifting faces. " " Was that really Lois Bowser? " " Yes, and she ' s quite a demon pilot. She is running the Trans-plantit Air Line to Venus. She has just gone up now for an exhibition. Watch and you ' ll see Fern Kindler, the notorious parachute jumper and daredevil. As Lyle Baugness, the famous Filibuster Expert, would say, ' She reminds me of nothing falling out of a vacuum into a void. ' " My■ Y v v ava .YAVf • n ' Y , VA J• .V vvW•A a A VAv -r. i " You ' ve told me about everyiody iclse. Now what about yourself? " " Oh, I ' m playing the role of Cleopatra in the Drawback of Notre Dame. Have you heard the latest? Herbert Valett, the human mosquito, has just crawled up the Flatiron Building back- wards. " " He alwa s was quite a back vard chap. What else do ' ou know? " " Orlean Wellons is the youngest frat mother on the campus of the University of Iowa — the Tappa Nother Keg Fraternity. " " Oh, that reminds me, George Fuller is attending a theological seminary, and come to think about it, Mary Luellen is the cheer leader of the same school. Is that a tea shoppe over there? Let ' s eat. " " Yes, that ' s the Blue Moon Tea Shoppe, operated by Dorothy Keifner. But I must ankle forth. I have a luncheon engagement with Ethelyn Vanatta, the author of Gentlemen Prefer B and There ' s A Reason. " Ira McKean, the head waiter, showed me to a table and told me that their specialties were noiseless soup and non-skid peas, both invented by Charles Bowker, formerly of the George Washington Calfj and green cheese sandwiches direct from the moon, made by Esther Rolfe. While I was waiting for my order, I listened to Station RUBE where Kathleen Fabrizius was singing her own composition, " Take Back Your Heart — I Ordered Liver, " dedicated to Braunwarth Halstead, John Barrymore ' s successor. Sara Rosenberg, owner and operator of the station, made an announcement. " Now folks, we have something new today. We are offering special prices on a new radio attachment for milking cows by radio, patented by Hugh Rehmel, and celluloid stove pokers for gas ranges, manufactured by Eleanor Zeidler. " Just as I was leaving the shoppe, I met Glenn Ogilvie who was busily engaged in gathering garbage. He told me that he was collecting local color for his next novel. Verle Neitzel brushed up. He was the street cleaner on the bridge — cleaning alleys, hallways, bywavs, in all ways. He told me that it was rumored that Eugene Magnus, the divorce court judge, was seek- ing a divorce from his wife, Ruth Stocker, as she insisted upon entering the Bathing Beauty contest at Atlantic City; he was afraid she would get splinters in her foot. The name of Marie Van Tryfle, starring in the re-screening of T ie Plastie Age, flared forth from the flashing footlights of the Castles In The Air Theater. I next came to Nola White ' s house for homesick, seasick and lovesick sailors. There on the lawn sat Tommy Beveridge, sailor on a fertilizer boat. I might add here, that he made every- body else sick too. Tommy was reading the poem which made Grace Varney famous — " Just a Mere ' Dink ' . " . Gertrude Te Strake ' s Fish Worm Nursery was located right next door to Nola White ' s Home for Sailors. I came to a spacious building outside of which was a sign, " Madame Myrle Engel, Crystal Gazer (Knows Nothing — Tells All). " She proceeded to tell me the whereabouts of several others. Florence Koester is taking dictation from King Tut on stone tablets in Egypt and Ray- mond Toussaint is her official pencil sharpener. George Seay is growing rindless, seedless water- melons in Mesopotamia. Henrietta Hiller is conducting a correspondence school for howling cats and screech owls. John Van Lent was at one time studying for interior decoration, but now he has taken up exterior decoration. He has a beauty shoppe, and Helene Haefner is demon- strating a new boyish haircut for him. Maxine Carver, Vada Corriell, and Dorothy Howe have a corporation and are manufacturing collapsible roller skates which will fit in any purse. She told me that Everett Hoffmeyer is recuperating from an attack of lockjaw and is now teaching Physics in a deaf and dumb school. " Well, wouldn ' t that make you throw rocks at your pet giraffe! Harry Tiecke, when did you get back from Europe? " " Oh, sooner or later. Say, have you seen this extra? " " No, what ' s up? " " Read it and see for vourself.

S ATLANTIC ' S A-ROARIN ' Published Now and Then JUNE 37, 1927 Here and There Minister ' s Daughter Turns Bootlegger Admitted to the Bars Cowleagnies at Iiarg ' e June 10. N. E. A. — The sensation of the decade occurred when " Vesta Hise, alias Polly Scotch, was compre- hended by local au- thorities for bootleg- g:ing- Groan-More hair tonic on the Trans- Atlantic Bridge. Miss Hise ' s arrest shocked the entire Northern Hemisphere. The capture was made during " an at- tempt to transfer the illicit " licker " from Painting Sue, the no- torious rum-running wreck, to Polly Scotch ' s Saxon car. When authorities ar- rived on the scene, Joe B o s t e n (Barbecue Joe) escaped in spite of the fact that Faint- ing Sue passed out. Edna L-eu, alias Licker Lou, private mechanic for Fainting Sue, came to the rescue at the critical moment and revived her with the smelling salts. Polly Scotch is tem- porarily lodged in t he Seaville County jail, awaiting the capture of her co-workers, when they will be bound over to the grand jury — for better or for worse. COURT NOTES Charles Latham was arraigned last week in Supreme Court before Judge M. Guilty on the charge of striking matches, beating eggs and whipping cream. The charge was brought by Catharine Montgomery. President of a Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Dumb Animals and Bachelors.

THEATERS " The Four Hoarsemen Are Galloping ' Success " The first disappear- ance of the " Four Hoarsemen " at the Overtime Theater met with overwhelming ap- proval. Their biggest hits were " Hard to Get Dirty, " " Throw It Heah. Chawley, " and " Go Fast, Gawge. " The personnel of the Quartette was: Charles Sywassink — 1st tremble Robert Schlunz — 2nd stumble Lyell Vanatta — 3rd mumble Ralph Minder — 4th rumble Morbert Liebhe — Short Stop (catches all lost, strayed, and stolen notes). Irving Bolt, the Mu- sic Master from Sing Sing, who recently transferred his talent to the White Sandals, was a howling success at the Gutter Pup The- ater last evening.

CITY BRIEFS By Lorena Maxwell Cub Reporter Mr. and Mrs. Ralph E. Leu (nee Pauline Jamison) announce the arrival of Mary Lou Leu on the late train going west at 2:03y2 A. M. Central Standard Time. Mr. Leu is the famous author of the well-known book en- titled " Love and Its Cure, " dedicated to his wife. Miss Gertrude Reed, local shoplifter, re- cently sprained her back by lifting too large a shop. Wayne Echardt was badly scratched by one of his lions which he recently captured while on a cat hunt in the Bronx Zoo. Pearl Holzhauer is conducting an expedi- tion of six girls from the Sweet Sixteen Col- lege through the wilds of Central Africa. They have ordered a carload of automatic popguns to use as a means of protection. Francis Honts, con- ductor of the Wilton Plug, recently married Juliana Rumsey, who selfishly niarried him with the idea in mind of seeing the great open spaces. Helen Downey has accepted a position as teller in the local Sand Bank. Gertrude Sywassink has recently been mar- ried to an aviator, who she savs is a little flighty. Herbert Schreurs, jumping center of the New York Giants, was recently chosen All- Am erican Jumping Center. His success was due to his ability in handling the pig iron basket ball, as though it were mere marble; this marvelous boom to athletics was invented, perfected, manufactured, and dis- tributed by Gladys Crossley. ' JUST ANOTHER WOMAN DRIVER " Vee Votaw Victim June 10, Atlantic Bridge — This morning at 2:00 PX, Miss Vir- ginia Votaw, formerly Muscatine maiden, cre- ated a sensation when she plunged headlong into a whirl-pool. She was returning in her new Purple Asteroid from a midnight frolic and was driving at the rate of 500 miles per hou r. She was rushed to Mary Lotspeich ' s Hos- pital for Disabled Lady-Bugs by La- moyne Jones, driver of the Fiery Cross Ambu- lance. Paul Bennett, the Nervous Specialist there, reports Miss Votaw is resting easi- ly this morning de- spite her serious in- jury of a broken finger nail. EDITORIAX.

Speaking of reducing, have you read Lucile Boiler ' s latest book on Hoiv to Reduce — Taken from Her Onvn ExperieneeV " No, but I have read Anna Wigim ' s latest book. Roll ' Em and They Slay Put. " I told her I was afraid she ' d get lockjaw too, and not wishing her any bad luck, I departed. As I sallied forth, I saw a shingle in an oflice building which read " Keep Moving Real Estate Co. — Donald Branson and Sons. " I was attracted to my right by the familiar restrains of the caliaphone and trumpeting ele- phants. A circus! Herman Cohn was patiently pacing in front of Myrtle Whitmcr ' s Up and Down Side Show. Evidently she was a sword swallower. Mr. Cohn was laden with a heavy sign advertising fresh hamburgers personally imported from Alvina Rankin ' s stand operated near the Sphinx. Wilbur Umlandt, bare-back camel rider, turned in at the gate. I ' ll bet he ' d walk a mile for a camel. On a canvas in front of the tent was a picture of Donald Sander, the world ' s most famous acrobat, assisted by his wife, formerly Edith Berg. The side-show barker, June Garrett, was describing their special hair-raising feeture. A young lady, Ruth Soil, was standing on the other side of the platform, dressed as an Eskimo and playing house on the har- monica. As I turned to leave, Sidney Bowen accosted me. " Did you see Paul Stamler vulcanizing toy balloons over there and David Grau teaching the little hottentots to knit. ' " " No, what about your steamship line? " " The bridge got all the business so I gave it up to be the Song and Dance Man with this show. Oh, yes, that reminds me, Aleta Singleton is a marathon swimmer in the Amazon River. " " Who ' s that newsboy over there? He looks simitar, but I can ' t organize him. " " Why, he is Harold Heussner, the messenger boy between Hear and T ieir. " " He ought to be a good information bureau. I must see him. " Six gossips later Harold continued, " I say, do you know that Ruth Stelzner is ((ueen of the Ouija Islands? " " No, but I just met Sini Goddard who tells me she is teaching the Pigley Wigley, the sequel to the Charleston. She says that Faith Stamler is a Rugby coach at Leland Stanford. ' ' " Sini Goddard a dancer! I can ' t imagine — " " Oh, I forgot to give you your telegram. Here. " " A telegram for me? " I opened it and read ' Come immediately. Do; Don ' t Dodge. ' " I turned, and slowly and silently the great bridge with its gay and laughing crowds, the in- ventions, the hopes and joys, the pulse and heart throb s of the class of ' 27, faded away. It is no longer visible. ... I awake. Was this all just a dream? I wonder. . . . m 1 : .Vf ll ■ r. f J i ' iJ, ! ; :Jt,■ • ' M ywx ' M. u u y .v . w j v: t ' yt y,VAV . x v ; • . .- ; ' %vy ' VTOT ; e A• I i t CLASS POEM Amid sighs, regrets and rejoicing We come to the end of the road, The way that seemed perfectly endless When we stooped to shoulder our load.

All the other teams had either been there before and were familiar with the way in which the con- test was carried on, or had been practicing for some time just for this event. Our team had had no practice outside the regular class work and the prize which they re- ceived was the result of hard work on their part.

Only wearers of the six-inch block " I l " are entitled to membership in this organi- zation. In order to win a regular letter in football a high school student must play at least nine quarters in three different games. If he earns a. letter in basketball he must have played at least one half in each of two-thirds of the major games played during the season. In estimating his participa- tion in important games we include all Little Six games, the two games with Daven- port, and the Tournament games. In track a student must win a first in a dual meet with a school the size of, or larger than, our own high school, or must win a place in either the Little Six or the District Meet at Davenport. In 1925-26, fifteen letters were awarded in football, seven letters in basketball, and ten letters in track. In 1926-27, fifteen letters were awarded in football and nine letters in basketball. The block " AI " is considered evidence of the highest athletic honor which Muscatine High School has to offer.

This team, which attained the State Title, was assembled and started last year by Mr. Nicolaus, who was the coach. This year George R. " Zip " Kloos took the helm, and turned out a cham- pionship ball team. The Little Muskies started the season off with a victory over Grandview, 26-16. The Muskies kept up their winning streak and lost their first game to our old time rivals, Davenport, by a 20-19 score. This defeat was later avenged, the Muskies scoring a 27-14 victory oyer the Daven- porters. After another string of successive w-ins, Burlington defeated Muscatine 23-22. This team also was defeated by a good score, 25-17. In the sectional tournament held at Muscatine the Little Muskies went through with flying colors by defeating U. High of Iowa City, West Libert -, and Iowa City High. In the next tournament, at Cedar Rapids, the Old Gold again took the tournament by defeating Cedar Rapids in the final game, 19-17. The State Meet held in Iowa City in the new Field House drew much interest, as both the Muskies and Burlington were entered. Muscatine defeated Oskaloosa in the first round, 22-9. By reason of this victory, the Muskies next played Vinton, and after a hard fight, beat them also, 12-10. In the meantime, Burlington had been winning its games also, and when the finals were to be played, the score board showed that Muscatine and Burlington were to clash for not only the State Title, but also for the Little Six Championship. After being headed during the entire game, the five fighting Little Muskies came back in a whirlwind finish, that knocked their opponents " fiat. " After the smoke cleared away the Muskies were winners by a 24—21 score. The Muskies lost their first game to London, Ky., in the first round of the Interscholastic Meet at Chicago, by a 15-12 verdict. Playing New Hampshire in the consolation game, the Muskies easily trounced their opponents, the score being 37-23. In the second round of the consolation tournament, Durham, N. C, " took " the Muskies by a 27-12 decision. Coach Kloos Pr t . ■ftYrn•rI W.V UV v. ! : ' .WA■ w■Vy d .

The Muskies held their own in the first half but let up in the second and the college-town team rushed its points over. Muscatine had a large number on the injured list, which also hampered their chances. Otherwise the team had a successful year. TRACK SQUAD Captain Allbee and his mates have Just put in the most successful season they have ever had in track. Allbee was the shining light of the squad b ' marking himself as the " fastest human " around these parts in the 4+0-yard dash, which is his favorite race. " Kenny " set a new Little Six record in the race at Burlington and also at Davenport in the District Meet. By winning there, he weiit to the State Meet at Ames where he carried oflF more honors in the 440. Allbee still has a ear left and li that time ought to be holding a number of records. fP ll fnr,yl, ,yi. , f AK ' i ' . ' .o {JT Jf i,l - , ' . rAVJ. e : : j r.v , , y. : . ■v.- L .v a . : .

The volleyball tournament was won by the Cubs, captained by Twila Anderson; the basketball championship was taken by the Dumb-bells, led by Myrtle Whitmer; and the baseball title was snatched away by the Freshmen, captain Jo Blakely. After each tournament the girls who showed luiusual skill at the game were given honorary places on an all-school team. The other factor in selecting them was the quality of sportsmanship they displayed in the games. Anyone who at any time. vio- lates the rules of sportsmen, is immediately disqualified from the all-school team. A Girls ' Athletic Association was organized, whose purpose it is to promote ath- letics, and cooperate with the advisor in selecting the sports they would like to have. An honorary point system entitles the eight girls having the highest number of points to earn a letter, the points being won by participation in the games. In all, our athletic program consists of volleyball, basketball, baseball, tumbling, swimming and track in addition to the regular gymnastics. From this well balanced schedule girls are now able to meet their need for physical recreation as they have never before done in the history of the athletic department. -f. }LiVmj-KfA t J ii- ' ]i ' ' i ,V h-rit,i ' V - ' i ' i- ' ' -rivivtw . p, ' : , v : AV.- : .v-i : v ■ ■v ■ ; yA 7 »- ;te JA• : A! ?. - TUMBLING TOP ROW; Florence Barry, Flossie Chi ' istiansen, ;Mertie Jahnke, Lois Daut, Xaonii Smith, Paith Lotspeich.

Orlean Wellons OF CHEMISTRY Scientifically speaking, we have discovered some marvelous basic truths of our ex- istence beneath the ragged backs of our textbooks. Here are a few theories, origi- nating in M. H. S., which " are being universally accepted as facts by the world ' s most progressive Science Magnates. 1. That carbon dioxide is exhaled so bountifully by students during class period because of the action of acrid words upon their marble minds. 2. A new element has been discovered. The name be Helium Haefium. Its physical properties — very high density, will take a high polish, for it lacks lustre ; in hardness and strength it compares favorably with many metals. Although it has high resistance, it melts readily when handled by the proper scientist. Its most striking property is its spontaneousness. Helium Haefium is also a powerful reducing agent, and a very energetic metal. This rare discovery was made b} ' Helene Haefner. 3. One happy young lady has invented a machine for the mending of broken hearts. 4. The period-VI Class of Chemistry has analyzed the stuff of which dreams are made. This elusive element, which has so long mystified the noted scientists, has been named " Vagrantimagination. " It is the most abundant compound of common sense and lunacy known. Although it is not very active, it is sometimes used in the building of character. It is a poison if taken in too large quantities, and the only antiseptic is concentrated Hardwork. Even though it occurs native, it has been prepared by va- rious methods, all of which have proved delightful, when the experiment was carried out during Study Hall. Results: A mixture of rainbow colors, diamond lights, moon- glow, deep purple shadows, gauzy-winged fairies, glistening tears, and bursting hearts. J. G. and H. H. WHOOSIER BOOTLEGGER? It was in the Garrett. The very thought of that word Honts me. In Leu of that fact, I was afraid to stay in the house and Reed — even afraid of the whole Berg, but nevertheless, walked Downey street at a very rapid Pace, looking as White as a bowl of buttermilk. " Varney world is everyone? " I thought, when suddenly a Maxwell sped Reay down the street past me. " He seems to be the only Soil about, " I thought as I Crossley street. ? I ' ' ' - ' i ' rC)ls:Je(Vf»Ai7r A t ' lif JA AS»Jtf I I Oh, ho ! What ' s this coming in Gray ? Bless m ' soul if it isn ' t my Valett but where did he get that suit? I suppose Van Lent it to him. " Howe come you are here? " I asked. " Oh, I lost McKee and was looking for you, " was the reply. " Well, come home with me ; there is some Bauguess creature in the house. " To our surprise, the Butler arrived before us and tried to explain Eberling. He had heard me Seay to Latham Bolt ' s at the top of the entrance to the Garrett and evidently the mice had used them for tiddle-winks. " Shreurs too bad you were frightened, " Jones remarked as he poured the Beveridge for breakfast the next morning. " That ' s all right — let ' s forget it. But lay off the groceries! I ' m Fuller than I ever was before. But, Seay, I ' ll take another glass with a little Hise this time if you please. That last tasted like dish water or weak vinegar.
