TO THE SENIORS
"Carry On." This is an expression made famous by the war. It is
no more applicable in war times than in peace. At the time of gradua-
tion it is full of significance. There are many things that should be
carried on from high school into one's future work.
The first-education. The high school should be only a beginning.
There is no excuse now-a-days for a boy or girl not receiving a college
education, if he or she has the determination. Lack of funds is no ex-
cuse. Provision is made in nearly all colleges to meet this condition.
There is a temptation everywhere among high school graduates to be
satisfied with present conditionsg to be contented with their present
educational attainments, when often they ought not to be satisfied. A
liberal education is a good investment for any young person who desires
it, if he or she has the health and ability to obtain it, no matter what
occupation may afterwards be followed. However, it is not necessary
for one to go to college in order to continue one's education. Education
should be made a life long process regardless of one's calling in life. AL
this stage of your progress you should realize how little you really know
and how much you yet have to learn, and thereby see the great im-
portance of continuing your education.
In the high school one learns to appreciate the study of good litera-
ture, of history, science, and kindred subjects. There is no excuse for
not continuing the study of these subjects after leaving high school al-
though one does not go to college. Much pleasure and benefit may be
derived from a continuation of the study of one or more of these sub-
jects throughout life. So I would say, Ucarry on." Do not permit your
education to stop after graduation, but "carry on."
High School life is full of enthusiasms. Enthusiasm is a good asset
to carry on with you. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthu-
siasm. We should lay up a stock of enthusiasms in youth or else we
shall reach the end of our journey with an empty heart, for we are sure
to lose a great many of them by the way. Enthusiasm makes work easy.
Enthusiasm helps one to enjoy life. One can not attain the greatest suc-
cess in any line of work unless one has enthusiasm. Enthusiasm enables
one to overcome obstacles. Then carry on your enthusiasms of youth
into your after life.
Many habits have been formed in high school that will be beneficial
throughout life. Regularity and punctuality are two. In the business
world these are indispensible assets. Your success will be in proportion
to your strict observance of these two habits. Carry them on.
The high school should have taught you the meaning and necessity
of hard work. ln this day of keen competition and intense struggle for
existence, hard work is a prime requisite. If you are afraid of hard
work and diligent application then your prospects for success are indeed
limited. Through hard work a person with only mediocre ability will
succeed, while one with brilliant attainments without it will fail. Do
1 HE-cn-HI T-1
not be afraid of hard work. If you do not have this habit, attain it.
Another thing you should have developed in high school is the
power of concentration. How important is this factor in the preparation
of lessons. It enables you to do in a short time what otherwise would
require a long period of time to accomplish, or what would not be ac-
complished at all. Concentration enables one to save time. The most
successful men in every calling of life have the habit of concentration.
Thomas A. Edison is an example of what concentration means and will
do. He has the ability to concentrate his mind and energy for days at a
time on a single problem. This trait has made him the most successful
inventor of all times. Whatever measure of this accomplishment you
have, carry it on with you as you leave school.
You are to be congratulated on the success you have attained in
school work. It means much to be graduated from high school. You
are being graduated at an opportune time. It is a great privilege to be
entering on one's life work in an age such as this. You are to be en-
vied for the possibilities that are before you. There are many opportu-
nities for young men and women of education who have the habits of
hard work, of regularity and punctuality, who have enthusiasm for the
work in which they are engaged and who have the power of concentra-
tion. It is to be hoped that the high school has given you these qualities.
It is a hard world into which you are going. It knows no favorites.
What you make of life will depend on your own individual efforts. The
world will soon learn to know you even better than you know yourself.
Play the game fair and square.
We all say God-speed and may the greatest success be yours.

By MARTIN S. WILKINSON
The thinking people of this country are becoming more alive every
day to the spreading of Bolshevism. This is evidenced by the great num-
ber of both business and professional men who are making a special
study of it. Not only this, but they are writing about it to enable the
people to understand how widespread is this menace that is threatening
the peace of the world. Virulent radicalism is sweeping all nations. It
is a contagious and fatal disease growing from the unhealthy economic
conditions left by the war.
It is time that all people should innoculate themselves against this
deadly contagion. Without doubt, the most efficient Way to do this is
in the education of the masses.
The great mass of the people are not original. They simply echo
the thoughts of the more educated people, and it is the duty of respon-
sible people of this country to make clear to the masses the real con-
ditions. This is probably the only qualified way of combating this
That there is a great wave of dissatisfaction throughout the coun-
try is generally recognized. But let us look at the people who originated
Bolshevism. As is quite well known, it was first started in Russia by the
Germans. That alone should be sufficient to cause the people to recog-
nize or at least look for falacies. Originally Germany's idea was to
poison the mind of the Russian people against the allies. If they could
do this it would be a very valuable asset to them. In their Russian
propaganda they stated that the United States, France, and England
were plotting together to get control of Russia and to divide it among
themselves. To have a better line on this, Lenine and Trotsky were
simply bought, although these are the recognized leaders, they are under
the supervision of the German general staff, which was placed in Petro-
grad by the Imperial German government. What was done and is being
if NE-cn-I-u i
done by these and their associates needs no telling except that today
Russia is a ruined nation, and is in such a state of turmoil that, as a for-
mer member of the British Parliament says, "One shoots another think-
ing he may be his enemy and finds the dead man to be his brother.
Princes, peasants, autocrats, rich, and poor all go down in the same
mass of dirt and bloodf' Everything is ruined and destroyed even the
churches, in which some very old and sacred antiquities were kept. As
a Chinaman puts it who saw the churches being blown to pieces by Rus-
sian shells, 'fRussian, him very bad man, he fights against his own God."
But all this is characteristic of imposed governments such as the Bol-
sheviki. The Bolshevik is a super-Hun. It is claimed that the crimes
perpetrated on the Belgians and French are mild compared with those
practiced by the Bolsheviki. There is nothing in the category of fright-
fulness unknown to them. One would like to believe that if these men
were once Russians all consciousness of love of their country had been
drained from their hearts before their subservience to those who are
enemies of all things that are dear and sacred to Russia. Russia is a
great field of magnetic Bolshevism whose lines of force extend to all
parts of the world.
In Argentina for instance, great strikes there for some time para-
lized industry, until soldiers were able to arrest two thousand strikers of
whom eighty percent were Bolsheviki agitators. United States Secre-
tary of Labor Wilson, declares that the chief object of the strikes that
occurred in Seattle, Butte, Patterson, and Lawrence was to cause a gen-
eral revolution in order to establish a soviet form of government in this
country, Unheard of as this may seem, nevertheless it is a fact and must
be considered. Government officials and labor bosses agree that all the
radical movements in the country have found a common cause in Bol-
shevism, and that the l. W. W., anarchists, and Socialists, in fact, all the
dissatisfied elements, particularly the foreign elements, are perfecting
an amalgamation with one oject and one only, and that the complete
overthrow of the United States government and the establishment of a
Bolsheviki republic, if such a one could exist. Unbelievable as this may
seem, the United States has a host of Bolsheviki and Socialist agitators
who are exerting all their powers to perfect their scheme.
Such slogans as these have been found in the United States mail:
"The war is over, now for the revolutionf, "Every strike is a small revo-
lution, and a dress rehearsal for the big one." These came from alleged
revolutionary sources. Few people would believe that a large percent
of the strikes in this country were the direct results of some branch of
Bolshevism. Yet despite these repeated warnings the people do not
realize the danger to which they are subjected. But being unprepared is
no excuse. These people are being used as tools of a gang of blusterers.
The men in their ranks have never held anything without wrecking it.
They are purely destructionists. They are men who have never made a
success of anything, who have failed utterly at everything, and who are
the rankest kind of incompetents.
The Russian exponents of this plan think nothing of standing five
hundred social democrats against the wall and shooting them before
HE- CFI -HI
breakfast. Such things as these could not be countenanced by decent
people. These people are extremists of the worst kind, and must be dealt
with accordingly. Their work may be seen in all parts of the world. Even
in this town they are working but they are under the surveilance, of gov-
ernment men. The example that the Bolsheviki have set in Russia is
enough to show its methods. There is no form of government on the face
of the earth that can successfully operate under the direction of a gang
of irresponsible, inhuman degenerates such as the Bolsheviki. From
men who have made a thorough study of it, Bolshevism is found to be
economically unsound, socially wrong and industrially it is an

During the last decade many great and marvelous histories have
been written concerning the wars and other events of the present day.
The conclusion of the World War attracted much attention but of even
more vital interest to us is the history of the eminent class of nineteen
hundred and nineteen.
Early in September of the year Nineteen Hundred and Fifteen, the
side walks fronting Reis Street and Lincoln Avenue were crowded with
laughing children, although many knees were shaking because of
thoughts of a new school, new teachers, new acquaintances and world-
wise Sophomores. Many were the threats heard in the crowds of upper-
classmen against "those green Freshiesf' but we pressed forward, un-
daunted, upon the opening of the school doors. Once inside we were
separated from friends, thrust into class-rooms containing strangers and
severe looking teachers, and were given cards which meant nothing to us.
However, after a few weeks of rigorous discipline, we became ac-
customed to the ways of a student and forgetting former fears, we en-
tered enthusiastically into all athletics and social doings. One of the
most memorable events of our first year was the Senior-Freshman recep-
tion on October the eighth. This reception accomplished its purpose in
getting the Freshmen better acquainted with the upper-classmen.
At the beginning of the second semester Mr. Thalman having
noticed how sedate and serious We looked and recognizing our wonder-
ful ability, permitted us to organize making our class the first Freshmen
class to organize in four years. Those of us who had not succumbed to
the Hood of examinations, chose as our first president, Marvin Richael,
under whose guidance we soon made a name for ourselves.
That year, the honor of the class of nineteen was upheld in basket-
ball by both a boys' and a girls! team. The members of these, being quite
inexperienced, improved this opportunity to gain all knowledge of the
In the fall of nineteen hundred and sixteen we re-entered school
thoroughly aware of the fact that we were Sophomores. That year we
selected William Lysle Newbury as our president and chose as our per-
manent colors, purple and white. We proved our ability in dramatics
in the "Mikadog" we manifested our worth in literary standards by the
names from our ranks that adorned the honor roll and we were well
represented in all athletics.
ij HE-CFI-HI .Ti-
On the twenty-fourth of September, nineteen hundred and seven-
teen, we again took up our studies as wise Juniors with Don Eckles as
our president. On December the fourteenth we successfully staged the
play "Mice and Men", which was credited as one of the best amateur
plays ever produced in the high school auditorium. It was this year
that we, unblushingly took the pep out of Eighteen by defeating her foot-
ball team against great odds, especially in weight.
This being our Junior year, all of our efforts were centered on the
annual Junior-Senior banquet. In fact, we became so engrossed in our
preparations that, on the day of this event We forgot to come to school
and as a result we missed the next circus that came to town. This ban-
quet Was held at the Elk's Club and, as the usual banquet was not given
on account of the War, a light luncheon was served. The chief amusement
of the evening was dancing. At this party we did our best to give
Eighteen the greatest social event of their school career.
On September the ninth, of the year nineteen hundred and eighteen,
We returned to school, most of us for the last time and began our school
work as earnest Seniors. As such, it was necessary for us to conduct our-
selves in a manner that would make us worthy examples to the under-
classmen. We chose as our president, Ralph 'fAgnes" Cooper to whose
wise leadership we attribute much of the success of our final year.
Owing to the epidemic of Spanish Influenza our last year in high school
was badly broken. This, however, did not prevent us from striving to
make this year the best of our high school course.
On November the twenty-second we gave a reception to the hun-
dreds of "comrades in knowledge" who had joined our ranks in Sep-
tember. A short play entitled "The Coon Rehearsal" was given for their
benefit and the remainder of the evening was devoted to getting ac-
On April the eleventh, the class of nineteen held its Hrst real party
at the Odd Fellows' Hall. The usual diversions were engaged in and
light refreshments were served by the young ladies of the class.
The Senior play, "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Was staged May
the first and second with great success. With such players as Madeleine
Nail, Helen Leslie, John McCormick and Floyd Yeager our class is well
represented from a dramatic standpoint. .
On "Senior Day" advice was given to the three lower classes which
was of a most mature nature and which was greatly appreciated. In-
stead of the usual dinner for the faculty at noon, a picnic was held after
which a dance was enjoyed.
From our ranks were drawn athletes for football, basketball, base-
ball, and track and next year the school will miss the services of Orr,
Yeager, and Daniels not a little and it will be nearly impossible to fill
the places of "Lib" Kirk and Mary Lou Eckles on the girls' basketball
team. This year, in spite of Junior prophecies, our class basketball team
won the class championship.
This year, "The Monitor", our school paper, under the editorship of
"Lib" Kirk reached a height of perfection hitherto unattained.
1 HE-Cn-H! di
As a last great social event, a banquet was given the Class of Nine-
teen by the Class of Twenty. This was held at the Elk's Club and was
thoroughly enjoyed by all.
This is the history of the class that is seated before you, the re-
nowned class of Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen. This class has made
a name for itself in the classroom, on the athletic field, on the gymna-
sium floor and on the stage.
We have done our best to live up to the ideals set forth to us as the
real ideals and in our short term of four years in High School have tried
to leave behind us a record which lives up to the school motto of "Noth-
ing but the Best" and we hope to take this same motto out into the world
or into college and by so doing leave there a record as fine as that of our
high school years.

THE NEW STAR
By PEARL EWENS
As the purple twilight dims our brightest day,
And the flowery World is enfold'd in dewy sleep,
Sending to earth its silv'ry ray,
A new star appears in that midnight deep-
A tiny light 'neath the soft moon's sheen,
A symbol of our class-'Nineteeni
Four years have quickly come and flown,
Like winged birds-we know not where.
We can proudly say no task's undone,
Each and all of us have had our share.
The hopes, happiness and honors we gain,
For you, dear High School, will be proclaimed.
So now let us look at the vision
As it stands confronting us all.
Oh, Star, aid our decision
To overcome what ill may befall,
And to choose the roadthat will lead us
From this path to the sign post-Success.
We are not leaving our future life to fate,
But with our guiding star above
We are saying farewell to our classmates
And the dear old school that we love.
And though new faces in these halls are se
They'll ne'er forget us-the Class of 'Nine
Oh Constellation, so clear and bright,
As you beam down upon the world,
Prudently guide our embryo light,
Let thy wisdom to it be unfurled.
Through the years that may come and mor
e swiftly pass
Intrusted to you are the hopes of our class.

By EARL BOOK
During the war poisonous gases were used to a great advantage on
both sides and now as the war is over you may wonder to what uses
these gases may be put. For they are still manufactured to a lesser
extent in remote places of which you know nothing. Very few people
know of the location of these factories but I happen to be a very close
friend of the owner of one of these plants, interested in the manufacture
of these gases. Being very much in his confidence I learned by chance
from him one day that these gases have led to the discovery of other
gases possessed of remarkable influence on the mind. At the time he
dropped this hint I instantly thought of my task as prophet for the Class
of 1919. I explained my need for a glimpse into the future to this gas
expert. He at once swore me to absolute secrecy and proceeded to ex-
plain the properties of a newly discovered gas, promising that if I should
submit to the administration of a dose of it, the future would at once be-
come an open book wherein might be read the future of my classmates.
We all know that science has performed feats in the last war that
seem almost impossibilities. I do not know whether this gas really had
the power to reveal the future as it shall be or whether the experience
upon which I entered was a dream or a veritable revelation. But great-
er improbabilities have come to pass and all we can do is to wait and see
-time will tell.
At any rate the gas was administered and what followed becomes
the subject of my narrative. After undergoing the terrible sensation of
falling into a bottomless pit I seemed to regain consciousness. We
seemed to be living in an age of electricity and science. The common
means of transportation were airships. I was aboard a large ship of the
dirigible type preparing for a transcontinental trip.
I discovered the pilot in charge of the ship to be a former member
of the illustrious class of '19, George Sands. He informed me that sev-
eral of our former class mates were on board, for this trip. He took me
around with him on his daily inspection trip, and the first persons whom
I saw were John Wilson and Glenn Throop busily engaged in swabbing
We passed through the state room halls where I saw a porter whom
I recognized as Lewis Williams. Under his arm was a bundle of candy
boxes which he told me were addressed to Jane Agnes Phillips. A
chamber maid was following him, Mary McCaskey, who took care of the
dresses of the chorus girls of the ship vaudeville troupe. He next took
me to the kitchen where I met the chef, Harry Orr and his two assistants,
:ZW HE-cn-HI l
Doris McBride and Odetta Hodgkinson. Among the waitresses gos-
sipping in the kitchen were Elsie Clarke, Jennette Snyder, and Fanny
We next went to the upper deck to the billiard rooms where I saw
Earl Ruby and Arthur Rigby playing pea-pool and smoking cigarettes.
Helen Book was in charge of the room racking up the balls. Pilot Sands
took me to his cabin where he told me that this was the first trip for this
airship and that it had many new devices which he believed would
prove quite successful. He also told me that Syd. Altshuler was the in-
ventor of these new devices. Syd got his first fame in the airship busi-
ness during the Liberty Loan Parades in New Castle.
That evening a ball was given, the proceeds to go to the aid of an
Old Maid's Home where some of our former class mates resided, Ada-
laide Wellendorft, Mae Wendt, Mildred Davenport, Marian Thompson
and Elva Sowash. The music was furnished by a jazz orchestra, the
leader being Professor Lauren Thayer with his famous violin. Two of
the most noticeable dancers on the floor were Earl Graham and Adelaide
Tiring of watching the ball l wandered to another part of the ship
to where a show was in progress. The Hrst act was composed of
"movies," the main feature of it being a vampire reel featuring "Theda
Bara of the Age," Gladyse Snyder. The next act was composed of Au-
brey Morrison's Dazzling Beauties. The chorus girls were Hannah
Agan, Francis Cox, Alice Dean, Florence Zehner, Anabel Hall and
Lucile Nesbitt. The comedians in the show were John McCormick as
the Irishman, Aubrey Morrison as the "Jew," and Bob Toler as the
On the way back to my stateroom I saw in the moonlight, Lysle
Newbury and Elizabeth Kirk sitting in one chair, deeply engrossed in a
conversation from which interesting results seemed likely to come.
The next day we heard a crowd cheering in one of the salons, then
we heard the sarcastic tone of the famous orator, M. S. VVilkinson, raised
against the evils of poolrooms. Among some of the most interested list-
eners were Marvin Richael and Kenneth Williams, who, Pilot Sands told
me, were devoted to various lines of social betterment. By this time we
were nearing Chicago and learned that we were to remain there several
hours. I decided to visit Joe Dockman, one of the most prominent law-
yers of the day and a resident of that city. I went to his office and he
was cordial in his greetings. I needed no introduction to a client of his
who happened to be in the office at the time, Ralph Cooper. He had just
purchased a farm on the outskirts of Chicago where he and Elizabeth
fByersD were going to settle down to hard, manual labor and lead a
After I left his office I was almost knocked down by a big National
car of the latest model being driven recklessly down the street by a
young lady whom I recognized as a classmate, her maiden name having
been Nell Armstrong. As we were about to leave Chicago my atten-
tion was called to a crowd listening to a candidate for President of the
United States on the wet ticket, Jesse Black. Ruth Bigham, I was told,
l HE-CFI-HI l-
was running against him. Mildred Gilliland and Pearl Ewens had
promised Jesse their united support.
That night aboard our airship we were entertained by a boxing
match staged by two heavyweight champions of the world, Edmond
Hamilton and Harvey Suosio. The next day, we stopped at Salt Lake
City where we heard the greatest evangelist in the country, Rev. Gurth
W. Rapson. He had with him some of the most noted musicians in the
world. A quartet composed of Ed. Canby, Earl Dufford, Harold Boak
and Leonard Stutz, accompanied on the piano by Francis Kissinger, who
made even more motions with his head and hands than he did in the days
when he figured in H. S. orchestra. Later that night I met Ralph Byers,
who I learned had become a Morman in order to make up for time lost
in his high school days. He told me the first two wives had been Made-
leine Nail and Jane Agnes Phillips who had made it so interesting for
him that he had decided that the more the merrier. He said that his
wives helped keep him, Madeleine by teaching vocal lessons to a group
that just arrived from South Africa and Jane by the sale of her old candy
boxes. N 1 fi
The next day as we were sailing very fast we had motor trouble
and had to light quickly. Some were a little shaken up, so we called a
doctor. He arrived bringing a Red Cross ambulance and nurse. The
driver of the Ford ambulance was Lena Green so none thought ourselves
hurt enough to ride back in her jolting car. When P. Dale Mitchell saw
the beautiful Red Cross nurse who accompanied the ambulance, he
developed a sudden illness. As the nurse, Mary Lou Eckles, bent over
him to administer restoratives, he looked up smilingly and wonderingly
into her beautiful eyes and seemed so contented that someone in the
crowd said "P, D. M."
On the arrival of a big, rough, western surgeon, Dr. Yeager, Dale
soon got better. But one of the beautiful young ladies, Mrs. Helen Les-
lie Shaffer who was on her way to Arizona, to join her husband, Paul
Shaffer, had her ankle bruised, but Dr. Yeager assured her that he
would care for it tenderly and that it would be allright soon. This was
the extent of our injuries and our mechanics, John Morris and Clifford
Williams told us that the motor would soon be repaired, so we took a
little trip to a nearby ranch. 'When we asked who the owner was we
were told that it Was Harold Kildoo who had become a rough, burly
westerner, and had married Dorothy Houk. They told us that Norman
Hunter was living with them but he had become demented over an affair
of the heart. We were very much interested in the sights about the
ranch, but our machine was ready and we must hurry on to Arizona-
Helen was anxious about Paul.
We stopped in Arizona to let Helen off. Paul Shaffer and Homer
Weitz were mining engineers hard at work trying to mine silver in the
cactus deserts of Arizona. We met Zek McGaffic touring the country
with his wife Eleanor Moore, in the interest of Woman Suffrage.
Our journey ended next day at San Francisco where Aubrey Mor-
rison lost another of his dancing girls, as Merrit Mitchell, a scientist
starving in his vain efforts to invent a gas to control women's tongues,
came along and took his Anabell fHallJ.
I met an old friend, Don Rigby, who had become a noted philoso-
pher. This was not strange because Don was a deep thinker and a stu-
dent of books in his school days. I asked him about some of our other
class mates. He told me that Ethel Ward was the wife of a sailor and
was traveling in the Arctic Ocean. He also told me that Florence
Geiger was a noted toe-dancer of the Hawaiian style, even surpassing
the Hawaiians themselves. He said that Elizabeth Newell had followed
her father's footsteps and became mayoress of a city in Panama and was
putting a heavy line on people caught snowballing. I next asked him if
he had heard anything about Martha Triplett lately and he told me that
she had been happily married to Marion Marchand and that he was
the proud father of "triplets" He said that some of the girls who had
liked school so well hated to leave it, so had become teachers. Among
these were Francis Fullerton, Minnie Federman and Agnes Howell.
Lula Kevine and Gertrude Levine, whom we thought were bashful girls,
were traveling with a circus.
He further called my attention to a society column in the leading
'Frisco daily where there appeared the name of Vincenzo Prioletti, who
had figured prominently in a fashionable ball given the night before. I
wondered whether his apparent popularity with the ladies might be
explained by his year's training as the one boy in the Vergil class of
N. C. H. S.
Late that afternoon Don led me to a beautiful building. I found
myself in a handsomely appointed room. Beautiful, stylishly gowned
ladies sat waiting their turns for the attention of one whom I recognized
as Rachel Braunstein. She was giving those ladies the benefit of a talent
she had developed during her school days, the art of hair-dressing.
Towards evening we went to a large academy of music. Several
musicians played and were moderately applauded. Then a girl whom
I immediately recognized as Susanna Wendt came out. Her appear-
ance was the signal for a wild outburst of applause. When the audience
had quieted down, she played with an exquisite interpretation and ex-
pression that balks description. A shower of bouquets covered the stage
when she had finished. On the program she was described as "the
world's greatest musician."
John Skuba who was famous in Science in his high school days, was
seen at work trying to discover still more wonderful results from gases
than had ever before been heard of.
My guide told me of noticing in the morning paper the arrest of a
former member of our class, Catherine Hodkinson, for being a leader
in I. W. W. movements. She had made a speech in favor of the Bol-
sheviki, who were getting a strong foothold in the country.
I suddenly came out of my sleep and found myself lying on a couch
in a laboratory. My friend was bending over me, telling me that we
must hurry in order to catch the train to be back in New Castle for
class night. So we hurriedly left the building, caught the train and I
am here as you see, and have foretold to you the future of this wonder-
ful class, as it was revealed to me.
THE SENIORS' FAREWELL
Now is the time for us to bid fond farewell to those whom we leave
behind to pursue knowledge. In one sense, these adieux arouse regret
and sorrow in our hearts for we will mourn over our absence
from the Alma Mater. The good times, the pleasant memories, and the
rich friendships that we have had in dear old Ne-Ca-Hi will always re-
main with us wherever we may wander over this earth's vast expanse.
It is sad because it is over.
But in another sense, it is just beginning! The word "commence-
ment" signifies itg "graduation" literally means progress. We have
completed one cycle of our little lives, and now stand ready to enter
upon a larger and better one. Our four years of preparation in high
school have merely fashioned and trained us more fully so that we might
be able to enter this larger phase of life with broader and more de-
veloped minds, with characters more sensative to the wants of human-
ity, and with the willing desire to fit ourselves to fill those wants.
To you who remain we say goodbye. In you we place all our hopes
of making our school bigger and better. In you we place our con-
fidence. We know that you can iill our places perhaps better than we
did, and we earnestly plead with you to make your school mean some-
thing to you. It gives you its best, you must give it your best.
ARE THERE TOO MANY ACTIVITIES IN OUR
The criticism has been made, and we have all heard it, that "there's
too much doing at high school. My John goes to all the clubs, practices
with all the athletic teams, gets home just in time for supper and then if
there isn't any play practice or committee meeting or club party, he
spends his time on his oboks. It isn't that he loafs all the time, but some
how his monthly grades are appallingly low."
Are there too many activities in our high school? There are the
departmental clubs, such as French club, Latin club, Commercial club,
there are the athletic teams, there are the Y. M. and the Y. W. clubs.
and various other organizations, to say nothing of the "extras," such
as class plays and special committees. A student may participate in
as many of these as he wishes however, the new student government
fi HE-CH-HI if
regulations, which will probably become effective next year, will restrict
the number somewhat. But the school could not exist without them.
They relieve the monotony of the otherwise lifeless grind. They excite
school loyalty and class spirit. They constitute the play and enjoyment
of school life. They strive to balance studious labor. But there can be
such a state in which they outweigh the books, just as the inferior is
sometimes valued more than the superior. After all we must consider
for what purpose our high school was built, why the citizens of New
Castle were taxed in order that a splendid and adequate institution of
learning might be constructed. Are we losing sight of this high and
ideal purpose in our excitement to busy ourselves to too great an extent
in the essential but not fundamental phases of our school life?
To you who remain, we Seniors. take this opportunity to gently ad-
vise you that not too much of one, nor too much of the other will bring
the est results, but we leave it to your able judgment and put our trust
in you that you do not become so excessively engrossed in the activities
of the school that you live solely for them and lose sight of the real goal
of a high school education,
STUDENT GOVERNMENT V
This year our principal, Mr. Orth, laid out plans for an organiza-
tion through which the student body could govern itself. It is made up
of three ranches: a House of Representatives, composed of the chief
executive officer or officers of each activity, a Senate, composed of two
student members elected by the House, and two faculty members ap-
pointed by the principal, who himself constitutes the fifth memberg and
a council of Faculty Advisors elected by the faculty themselves.
The first two organized and elected officers about the middle of
the year and then because of lack of something definite to do interest
lagged and not much action was taken.
Why did interest lag? Why did this organization fail to accomplish
anything? Surely not because there was no need of its services. If
properly managed and directed an organization of this kind could work
wonders in any school. By letting students shoulder some of the re-
sponsibility which they usually force others to bear for them, and to
make them look out for themselves teaches independence and reliability.
Would not the student body be more likely to have greater interest in
reforms and regulations which it makes itself through its representa-
tives? Would not the too numerous cases of tardiness decline if the
student body inHicted its own punishment? Would not the habit of
defacing school property fall into decay if the student felt that he was
a part of the whole system and could indirectly have control over him-
self for the betterment of the school?
All these questions remain yet to be solved. The results of student
government have yet to be seen after that plan has been given a fair
chance. But we, the Senior class, desire nothing better than to see in
the future, when we revisit our Alma Mater, a definite, active and well-
organized system of student government in practice.

CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED TWENTY
Our Junior year, so filled with the thrills and
pleasures of an upper classman, draws near its close.
So pleasant are the memories of the good times we
have had this term that we are indeed glad it is not
our last year in beloved Ne-Ca-Hi.
We are a lively setg may I say, this is noticeable
of the girls especially. Our girls' basketball team
won the championship last year and again this year
although we had given a number of our best players
to the varsity. Although the boys failed to win the
cup they played well and lost gamely.
Surely a Junior class never set a better example
for lower elassmen than the Class of 1920 in sports,
in studies, and in society.
April 16, a dance was held at the I. O. O. F. hall
and every one had one jolly good time.
The crowning events of the year were the Jun-
ior-Senior banquet and the Junior play, entitled "A

CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED TWENTY-ONE
As the sun rose majestically over the hilltops, on one
bright morning in the autumn of '17, it heralded the coming of
the Class of '21, and on that same morning Mr. Orth seated
himself at the office desk to assume for the first time, the
duties of the principalship.
Despite some few petty trials and tribulations, our Fresh-
man year was a success. All school activities and especially
athletics were faithfully supported by the class. We made our
debut in society at a dance given at Cascade Park.
Our Sophomore year has been an undoubted success.
Many brilliant stars have been added to the roster of our high
school athletes and others glimmering faintly on the horizon
will very likely be seen more clearly next year. If there is
doubt in anyone's mind as to the learning and wisdom which
we have absorbed during our sojourn in Ne-Ca-Hi, let him con-
sult the oracle called the "Honor Roll."
ln memory of those from the high school who fought and
died in France to save Democracy, each class has planted two
If the trees planted by the Class of '21 flourish as well as
the class for which they stand, then indeed they will hold their
heads proudly in the air, undaunted by the storms which will
blow through their branches, in the years to come.
The last important event of the year will be a party, with
which we shall celebrate the close of this, our second success-
ful year in these fair halls of renown.
And now with the sun dial pointing past the noon of our
high school career, we hope that Dame Fortune will smile even
more favorably on us next year.

CLASS OF NINETEEN HUNDRED
WVe, the very verdant class of 1922, entered this
grand institution last September, four hundred and
forty strong. For various reasons our numbers have
slightly decreased, but we have been an important
factor in high school life.
Socially, we did not do much this year. lVe ap-
preciated decidedly however, the enthusiastic recep-
tion given in our honor by our Lipper classmates, the
Seniors, in the early part of the term.
Athletically, we have supported our dear school
loyally. We attended the games and furnished ma-
terial for the teams. One of our number, Toley Be-
van, received a varsity letter for football, while still
others received reserve letters.
As a whole we feel that we have been successful
this year and we eagerly await our future in which
we will strive along with the other classes to better
our school and to live up to its motto, "Nothing But

first year in these fair halls are:

CAST OF HMIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM"
THE SENIOR CLASS PLAY
"A Midsummer Night's Dream," the fourth Shakespearian play to be given in
New Castle High School, was presented by the Class of 1919 on April 30 and May 2,
under the able direction of Miss Clara Hartsuff, Miss Bernice Frey, and Miss Mary
VanDivort. The scenery was in charge of Miss Margaret Thompson, head of the Art
The misunderstandings of the lovers were cleverly brought about by Oberon and
his mischievous messenger, Puck, who, finally seeing what harm was being done, righted
the mistakes and brought them together to live happily ever after. The mechanicals
enlivened the scenes, making a comedy of what might have been otherwise a tragedy.

CAST OF HA CHINESE HONEYMOON'
"A CHINESE HONEYMOONU
As is the custom, the Junior class put on a class play. The one selected was
'AA Chinese Honeymoon," a modern musical comedy.
The plot was good and the music catchy and although late in starting, the work
was taken up in earnest and the play progressed rapidly. Undcr the direction of Miss
Hazel Williams, dramatic coach, and Carroll P, Kearns, musical director, the produc-
tion was a tremendous success.
The plot was laid in China where Mr. and Mrs. Pineapple, from England, were
sojourning on their honeymoon. Tom Heatherton, nephew of Mr. Pineapple was also
in China and had fallen deeply in love with Soo Soo, niece of the Emperor. After
many misunderstandings and complications the play ended happily for all.

The High School Orchestra in this, its fifth year of existence has
been larger than ever before. Under the able management of Mr. E. F.
Kurtz, a violinist of prominence, the orchestra has been one of the suc-
cessful features of the school for several years. It would have been an
even more prominent organization this year if the "flu" ban had not in-
terfered with its work. It was because of this that the orchestra did not
give a concert as has been their custom in past years. The orchestra
meets for practice every Monday afternoon.

THE HI-Y CLUB
The Hi-Y Club like all other school activities, has been
greatly handicapped this year. The first 'ttlu banl' went into
effect just as plans were being made to start the club for the
year and no definite organization was made until after the
Christmas vacation. Meetings were held regularly, once a
week, from that time to the last of March, in the Y. M. C. A.
banquet room or the high school cafeteria.
The club has been fortunate in hearing many good
speakers from whose interesting and enlightening talks much
benefit has been derived. The organization owes the securing
of these speakers and the great success of the Hi-Y as a whole,
to Mr. Patterson, secretary of the Boys' Department of the
Y. M. C. A.

was managed this year are:

in this way have aroused more interest in the work.

interesting but also practical, for instance, we have

Not the least of our activities has been the raising of
money with 'which we will send delegates to the High

ADELPHIC LITERARY SOCIETY
Another year has been added to the history of the Adel-

school. The Society has endeavored to live up to the high
standard set in other years.
The membership of the club this year reached a height
never attained in past years. It was made up chiefly of
Juniors and Seniors, with a few Sophomores the last semester.
The purpose of the organization has been to teach and
practice parliamentary law and to forward and develop the
art of public speaking. The club owes much of its success of
the past year to Miss Hazel Williams who acted as faculty

THE SPANISH CLUB
One of the newest and most interesting organizations in
our High School is the Spanish Club. The club has just com-
pleted its second year under the able supervision of Miss Bed-
ford. Its Weekly meetings have included short business ses-
sions followed by special programs. These programs have
been of great benefit to the Spanish students, enabling them to
express their thoughts in Spanish.
The Club has been carried on this year by the second year
class composed mostly of Seniors, who feel very proud that
they have had a part in the successful year of this club. Their
sincere Wish is that next year the remaining students may
achieve greater things, and have a larger and better organi-

THE LATIN CLUB
The "Old Romans" of Ne-Ca-Hi have com-
pleted an unusually successful term in their or-
ganization, the Latin Club. The purpose of this
club is to increase interest in the study of Latin
in the lower classes although much benefit is re-
ceived by the upper classmen.
Two interesting features of the programs
carried out by the Latin Club members were the
serial presentation and explanation of Roman
names, and the learning of famous Latin songs.
The enrollment this year shows ninety-
three members whose hearty response and regu-
lar attendance at all meetings justifies the Latin
Club in regarding itself the most successful
department organization in the school.

School students who have studied any scientific sub--
jects are eligible, and there are now listed among
our ranks ninety members. The meetings are held
the second Friday of every month, the third period,
in the auditorium. On account of the several en-
forced vacations it has been impossible to take the
usual trips to places of interest this year.

THE FRENCH CLUB
THE FRENCH CLUB
During the school term of last year it was decided to
organize a French Club. The first members were those of the
second year French class. Near the close of the year five
French I members were taken in, so that they would be able to
start the club the coming year.
The French Club has been greatly hindered this year on
account of the "flu" epidemic. At the second meeting it was
decided to enlarge the Club, adding to it those of the French
I and French II classes holding a certain average.
The Club has endeavored to have an interesting as well as
an instructive program at each meeting. We feel that the
French Society is doing a good work and hope it may be con-
tinued during the coming years.
The oiiicers for this year have been:

THE COMMERCIAL CLUB
With Mr. Clark as director and faculty supervisor, the
Commercial Club has just completed an interesting and active
The first meeting was held on Jan. 3, 1919 in the audi-
torium. It was composed almost entirely of old members, who
discussed plans for the year and elected the following officers:

arranged by the entertainment committee with Thorton Allen
We feel that the Commercial Club has been a decided
success this year, all owing to the hearty co-operation it has
received from the members of the Commercial Department,
and we hope that the remaining members will be so well
pleased with the products of this year's work, that they will
carry on their interest and enthusiasm, and make next year's
club finer and even better than this.

THE STUDENT SENATE
This branch of the Student Associated Activities was or-
ganized in the latter part of the year but saw no really active
service. However, under the constitution of the Association
it has an extensive field in which to work and through which
it can accomplish much to better the school. lt is hoped that
the school will find more use for this group next year in carry-
ing out the plan of self-government.

THE ATHLETIC BOARD
MR. EAST, MR. SHAEFFER. MR. ORTH, E. KIRK, P. SHAFER, Pres.. MR. GARDNER, D. RUSSELL
SUMMARY OF ATHLETICS FOR '18-'19
my Athletics at Ne-Ca-Hi have en-
ljoyed a very successful year, both
from a playing and a financial stand-
l Although the football season was
badly broken up by the influenza epi-
demic, we were able to play six games,
only one of which was lost. The boys
Vit all times showed the proper fight-
ing spirit and "pep", never at any
time letting up until the final whistle.
They played their best game against
Salem, Ohio, running over them twen-
ty-two to nothing.
In basketball we had one of the
best teams in the history of the school.
Starting with practically a green team
we kept advancing until in the final
game of the season against New Brigh-
l ton we showed class equal to that of
any team in the league. The bright
spots in the season's play were the victories over Butler Qthe first in the
school's historyj, Beaver Falls, and New Brighton.
The final standing showed us in third place which we succeeded in
taking by winning four of the last five games played.
We also landed second place in the Industrial league, winning
twelve out of fourteen games.
This spring baseball and track are being put on a "varsity" basis
again and we hope to lay a foundation for teams which another year
should take an equal rank with those produced in football and basket-
Interclass athletics also play an important part in the school's activ-
ities many of the Hvarsity' men getting their first training here.
The basketball league this year enjoyed one of the most exciting
races yet held and it was only after a great struggle that the Freshmen
and Sophomore teams were eliminated and that the Seniors conquered
the Juniors in the final series.
A class baseball schedule is being played and thus far the teams
seem very evenly matched. The interclass track meet is to be held dur-
ing the middle of May and a great deal of promising material has shown
up for practice.
The teams this year have worked under one handicap howeverg and
that has been lack of sufficient "scrub" material. There are many fine
athletes in school that never go near the football field or the basketball
fioor and you are the ones we need next year. lf you have the time and
the ability it is a part of your school duty to come out and help keep New
Castle High School in the front rank.
CLARENCE EAST, Coach.

FOOTBALL SEASON 1918
Our football season this year was badly
broken up by the various influenza bans which
were put on about every other week. Yeager,
who played right end, was a shining light all
season, and made many of our points. "Heavy"
Orr the captain, played a good game in the line,
while the Whole team played well most of the
time. The games and scores were as follows:

BASKETBALL SCORES AND STATISTICS
Our basketball season this year has been more successful than last
year's season. We were defeated only once on our own floor, and but
twice in the Industrial League, in which our team was a member. In the
W. P. I. A. League we came out about third place, which is doing good
when we consider the teams representing Bellevue, Butler, and Beaver
Falls in the league this year. The League games and the scores were

The last game on the list with Niles, O., the champion of the state of
Ohio, was scheduled to test our skill against the best in other leagues,
and we showed up pretty well, considering that we were playing on a
strange floor and not an extra good one at that, and against the best team
of Ohio in the high school class.
In the Industrial League, we were the second of the three real con-
tenders for the cup, and were second only to the best team in New
Castle, the Carnegie Steel Mill Team. Shenango Tin Mill was the third
contender for the cup, but they never succeeded in beating us, even
though they came near it one game when we won 22 to 21. The total
scores for the League were as follows:
Total for N. C. H. S. 587-Opponents 292.
The only defeats we suffered were two by Carnegie, one by the
score of 36 to 20, and the second 53 to 23, the last game in the league.
The total number of points made by N. C. H. S. and by her oppon-
ents during the season was as follows: N. C. H. S. 1108-Opponents 730.

GIRLS' VARSITY BASKETBALL
The girls' varsity has been very successful this year in
spite of two rather serious obstacles in their way at the begin-
ning of the season. In the first place they had but one player
of last year's team return, and in the second place they had no
coach. Yet not daunted by lack of these essentials, they or-
ganized a team, arranged a schedule and played one game at
Sharon, which game they lost by a very small margin. Then
fortune favored them and their efforts were rewarded, for the
school board appointed a coach.
By this time however, they had shown of what kind of
stuff they were made and their following successes were no
more than was to have been expected of them. Of the remain-
ing seven games, they won five.
Taking everything into consideration, the record they
made this year is much more than good and what they have
accomplished this season will give the team a good start for
next year. The four Juniors who receive letters will probably
return and New Castle High School is assured of a champion-
ship girls' team for nineteen twenty.
The girls who received letters are: Elizabeth Kirk '19,
Mary Lou Eckles '19, Madeleine Nail '19, Odetta Hodgkinson
'19, Imogene Gillespie '20, Kathryn Matheny '20, Jane Smith
'20, Edith Lockhart '20,

GIRLS' CLASS BASKETBALL
N. C. H. S. is a school of athletes, and not only the boys but the girls
are interested in athletics. The girls have a Varsity basketball team
which usually makes as good if not better record than the Boys' Varsity
docs. Not only this but there is a girls' class league in which some ex-
citing games are played each year. The scores for this year are as

BOYS' CLASS BASKETBALL
The class basketball race this year has been quite spirited and near
the end became a four-cornered race for the second half championship
and the right to play the Juniors for the cup and the school champion-
ship. The Seniors finally by defeating first the Juniors, and then the
Freshmen in the tie-up elimination series, won the right to play for the
cup. Then in a glorious and bloody series of three games, the most ex-
citing ones of the season in the Class league, they Won two out of three
and thus won the cup, proving they were the champions and best team
of the school. The scores of the tie-up games were as follows:

BASEBALL, TRACK, AND TENNIS
Baseball was entered on our athletic program this year for the first
time since the spring of 1917. It was in the nature of an experiment as
much depended upon the support it received whether it would be car-
ried on next spring or not.
The baseball team made a H119 showing considering that the fel-
lows were new at the game and had very little chance for practice.
The short term necessitated a similar schedule. The following games
were played and in each one the team showed itself worthy of support.
May 3-Butler at New Castle.
May 10-Slippery Rock at Slippery Rock.
May 17-Westminster at Westminster.
May 24-Butler at Butler.
There were very few out for track and a few of the fellows were
taken to Wilkinsburg to participate in the interscholastic meet held at
Tennis this year is coming into its own as a sport of the school.
Under the supervision of Ralph Gardner and Tom Lamoree several
matches with other high schools were scheduled. In order to determine
the team, tournaments were arranged in which everyone could partici-
pate, the winners making up the varsity team.
A Tennis Club was formed and its officers are as follows:

A MID-SUMMER NIGHT'S INCIDENT
Reginald Regibus Raymond, with a parting word at his room-mate,
stepped jauntily from the door of his boarding house and came around
the corner just in time to collide with a swarthy, villainous-faced man,
who happened to be coming the opposite way. A flash of recognition
entered Reginald's head and as he glanced into the strangers eyes,
there came to him a memory of a warm moonlight night, under the shade
of palm trees, at a place far away, clearer still, came the mem'ry of an
upraised flashing knife. Our young hero's face took on a look of be-
nign violence, and grasping the man by the shoulder, he whispered in
his ear, "I got a mind to whale er one acrost the mug. Gimme that
nickle, or I'll smash yer flatter'n a door nail!" For verily, he was the
Greek waiter who had short-changed him at Callahan's restaurant."
A medical sergeant was putting his men through a preliminary ex-
amination in first aid work.
"Well, Mike," he asked, "how would you treat a man, if he were to

sider that he had enough."

An Irishman, an Englishman and an American were riding in a
first class coach in England. The Irishman was smoking his pipe, and
after having asked him several times to put it out, the Englishman called
a guard and explained the caseL The Irishman took out his pipe long
enough to say that the Englishman had a third class ticket and was
riding in a first class coach. This being so, the Englishman was re-
moved and the American turned to the Irishman and asked him how he
knew this. "Oh," replied the Irishman, "I saw his ticket sticking out of
his pocket and it was the same color as mine."
A DISC-UISED BLESSING
A soldier, who had been unable to change his socks for several days,

TEN BAR ROOMS IN A NIGHT
fsequel to Ten Nights in a Bar Room.
The author's purpose in writing this book is for the mental and
physical uplift of the public in general.
The old man left home half drunk, on a windy July morning in
May. It was a beautiful evening and the birds were twittering in the
trees among the worms. The old man was going to see "The Broadway
Belles." As he went into the bar room, he was met by the bar tender
who had a very individual air of informality.
As he was beginning to swoggle down the living fire, his small
daughter, who was a beautiful child, whom he had known for the last
fortyfive years, came in. She wound her slim, beautiful, undaunteci
arms about his neck, which was size 16. She pleaded with him, but In
vain. He was hard-hearted and would not yield to her wild demands
The dawn was breaking and the sun was just setting in the east.
Finally, as he grew heavier by intake, he listened to her pleadings and
finally consented to go home with his darling 'fdaterf'
When the old man entered the house, the wife danced with glee
and was very joyful.
The old man promised to stop drinking. This news made the family
Ten years later the drunkard father died. He left money in the
bank. But it wasn't his fault that he left it there, because he was shot
while trying to get it out. Thus does the life of a poor drunkard close
and the poor daughter suffers for his fault.

IS IT ANYBODY'S BUSINESS?
Is it anyb0dy's business,
If a gentleman should choose
To wait upon a lady,
If the lady don't refuse?
Or, to speak a little plainer
That the meaning you may know,
Is it anybody's business
If a lady has a beau.
The substance of our query
Simply stated would be this:
Is it anybody's business
What another's business is?
Whether 't is or whether 't isn't,
We should really like to know,
For we are certain, if it isn't,
There are some who make it so.

Two or three soft speeches made by the wayg
Two or three tickets for two or three timesg
Two or three love letters writ all in rhymesg

Can never fail making a couple of fools.

A man drove up to a corner drug store in his new Ford a cold day
in January. He threw a blanket over the hood to keep it from freezing.
A small boy standing on the corner yelled: "Too late to cover it up, I
saw what it was."
Some fellows are born with genius,
God must have forgotten me!
For Fm just about as fluent,
As our garbage man would be!
When it comes to writing poetry
I'd better let others try,
For you'll surely acknowledge that my attempts
Are the kind that make others die.
Out of a house a burglar stole,
And a bag of chink he chunk,
And many a wicked smile he smole,
And many a wink he wunk,
And many a hideous grin he grun,
And many a thought he thunk.
Where can a man find a cap for his knee?
Or a key for a lock of his hair?
Would you call his eyes an academy
Because there are pupils there?
What jewel adorns the crown of his head,
What crosses the bridge of his nose?
Would he use when shingling the roof of his mouth
The nails from his fingers and toes?
Could the crook of his elbow be sent to jail?
If so, what would it do?
I wonder who sharpens his shoulder blades?
I'll be darned if I know, do you?
Billy N.: "How can you make a tall man short?'
Jim S.: "By borrowing live dollars of him."
Charles Dart: "What is the largest word?"

If you can hold your head up, while others
Are drooping theirs from marches and fatigueg
If you can drill in dust that clouds and smothers
And still be fit to hike another leagueg
If you can stand the greasy food and dishes,
The long black nights, the lonesome road, the bluesg
If you can choke back the gloomy wishes
For home that seems to spring right from your shoesg
If you can laugh at sick call and the pill boys,
When all the other lads are checking ing
If you can kid and jolly all the kill joys,
Whose faces long ago forgot to gring
If at parade you stand fast at attention
When every muscle shrieks aloud with paing
If you can grin and snicker at the mention
Of some bone play connected with your nameg
If you succeed to keep your knees from knocking,
At the thought of all the bullets you may stopg
If you can do these things and really like 'em,
You'll be a reg'lar soldier yet, old top.

WHERE MONEY COUNTS
"Darling," he said, "I have lost all my money."
"How careless of you," she replied. "The next thing you know
you'll be losing me."
A negro sergeant was drilling his men and noticed that one in the
rear was somewhat bowlegged.
"Stand at 'tention, nigger," he barked.
"I'se at 'tention sa'gent."
"Nigger, from yo' knees up you is at 'tentiong but from yo' knees
down yo' at parade rest."
"So you're to enlist, Mike?"

and that shell kills the man whose name is on it."

For purpose plain, and coyly said:
"Yes, Billy do!"
