Four years ago it seemed so very far away
We dreaded it for there were some who,
With a sigh, would say,
"Now you are young. Enjoy life while you may.
Indeed, these are the happiest days of your life."
So how could we but help to dread
But only half believing them, through Philly High
We've gone. There were parties, proms, and clubs
With their various activities, and football, basketball,
Baseball, and track 5 a debate team, too.
"Were there no studies ?"
"What's that you say?" "Oh, yes! Yes, surely, we
Studied some. That's what gives us our diploma on
Now, before we leave this dear alma mater,
My class of Twenty-seven, a vision I'll
Relate to you. While I was wondering what to do
And what life really means, a beautiful figure
Appeared to me. Though a heavy curtain separated
Her radiance and her loveliness almost blinded me.
She answered my questions about Life and
Thus did Wisdom speak:
"You who would truly live, obey
The words of great Philosophers,
To know thyself. To love thy neighbor as thyself.
Then, armed with the shield of Truth
And the sword of Love, go forth
To find the best in life on

Kinsey, Mary Jane
Pa says the days at High School
Are mighty good for me,
Because I learn so much about
What is and ought to beg
And that some day I'll make him proud
By being something great,
And then I says to Pa, says I,
"You'll not have long to wait,
'Cause every day my head's stuffed full
Of knowledge to the brim,
And pretty soon I'll know so much
That no more can soak in."
Then Pa looked at me kinda 'sprised,
Not knowing it was true,
And says, "I must have proofs, my gal,
Just give me one or two."
And then I got to telling him
Of things I knew were true.
How Ford was our first president,
In fourteen hundred ninety-two,
The war of eighteen twelve was fought
In seventeen hundred seventy six,
They took the beans to Boston Harbor
And spilled the whole bag of tricks,
K. D. K. A. was the battle ship,
Bombed at Manila Bay,
Mary Pickford was the lassie,
Who raked the meadow sweet with hay,
Babe Ruth discovered radio,
Gene Tunny the telephone,
Ben Franklin wrote the song,
"Show Me the Way to Go Home"-
"Hold on," says Pa, "that's quite enough
To show me that you know
Enough to be a president,
A judge, or cop, and so
Three cheers for dear old Phila High,
The finest school around,
For teaching good sound knowledge
Its equal can't be found.
M abeline Burkhart, '27
Those We Love The Best
They say the world is round, yet sometimes I think it square,
The many little hurts we get from corners here and there.
But one truth I've learned from life while journeying east and west,
The only folks we really wound are those we love the best.
We Hatter those we scarcely know, and please the fleeting guestg
And deal many a thoughtless blow to those we love the best.

Record of Football Games
N. P. H. S. O-Warren O.
This was a good game everything considered, this being the first
game for Hensel, Thomas, Neff, Mathias, W. Smith, Shafer, jones.
We had the ball on their one foot line but we couldn't put it over.
We had the ball in Warren's territory nearly the whole game. Every-
one played well.
N. P. H. S. 19-Wooster O.
Wooster's team was built around Zarlengo but we stopped him.
The play was slow and there were many fumbles. Phila had a good
defense and Wooster found it hard to gain.
N. P. H. S. 20-Carrollton 0.
This was the worst exhibition of football the whole season. A
good thing Carrollton was a weak team. We fumbled and fumbled
and how we made even 20 points is a mystery.
N. P. H. S. 13-Orrville O.
Orrville had not been beaten until they struck Phila. McCarthy,
their fullback, had been running wild. Orrville had a heavy team, but
that didn't stop Phila. Smith first scored on a pass and then Win-
speare intercepted one of their passes and ran 50 yards for a touch-
N. P. H. S. O-Canton 26.
Canton had the hardest hitting backfield that Phila played against.
We had live men on the injured list. Phila played a hard game and the
score stood 6-0 at the half. Canton's heavy team and hard hitting
backs soon began to tell and they didn't have much opposition.
N. P. H. S. 6-Massillon 6.
What a game! Massillon had a great team and so did Phila.
Mathias was the defensive star and Smith the offensive. Phila lirst
scored when Smith drop-kicked from the 40 yard line, then later
when he dropped another over the bar from the 20 yard line. Mas-
sillon scored from the 20 yard line.
N. P. H. S. 53-Newcomerstown 7
Newcomerstown didn't have punch and the second team was
started. Newcomerstown scored first but from then on it was our
game and everyone scored.
N. P. H. S. 6-Dover 6.
There was not room for one more. Phila scored first and then
we were out played on the second and third quarters. Phila got her
fight back and in the fourth quarter we were on their one foot line
but could not take the ball over. Dover and Phila each played defen-
sively but it was too muddy to do any real scoring.
l . 2
As a coach "Dutch" made a wonderful leader. He had that inspiring per-
sonality that made the fellows work for him and the school. The team made an
enviable record not only in results but also in sportsmanship. We hope that
"Dutch" will be back next year to make another great record.
WILLIAM FISHEL-f1ss'i Coach and Faculty Manager
"Bill" did more for the team than he was given credit for: when the team
needed anything, he furnished it immediately. We cannot express our apprecia-
tion and indebtedness to him for the time and effort that he has spent in behalf
of the team.
Meiser was one of the best linemen New Phila ever had.. His three years
of experience showed up to advantageg there were very few teams that were able
to make gains through him. Carl could play in the backheld and on the line
equally well. He was a bear on offense or defense and was always a worry to
the opposition. VVe hope that we may have someone to till his shoes next year.
When "Dolphy" played against Warren, it was the first game he had ever
seen or played. Hensel was the "tightingest" lineman on the team, and because
of his spirit and ability he was rewarded by being elected next year's captain.
With Hensel as captain, N. P. H. S. will have a successful season.
Dean was one of the best triple-threat men ever turned out of Phila. Dean
was a smart player and could diagnose the opponents' plays with great ability.
He was a sure tackler, good passer and blocker and it is sufficient to say he out
played his man in every gameg he also tied Massillon with two beautiful field
goals. VVe are extremely sorry that Dean is leaving us this year.
Neff was one of the smallest men on the squad but he made up for his small-
ness in speed and fight. Neff could back up the line or run back punts with any
one. He was one of the mainstays of the team and will be missed next year.
"Steve" stepped right in and took center position without difficulty. "Steve"
was a smart center and always was in the thick of the fight. "Steve" never made
a bad passg we hope to have a good center like him next year.
ROBERT WI NSPEAR-"BoB"- Back
"Bob" is another one of our two year men and was one of the mainstays of
the team. He was the best passer on the team as Uhrichsville well knows.
"Bohn was a good defensive man and a great asset to the team. We hope to
hear more of "Bob" in college.
e i I
"Sam" never was a star but he deserved much praise. He was one of those
in the center of the line that usually got walked or jumped on. "Sam" was a
consistent, steady guard 5 we wish that he could be back next year.
JOHN JONES-HZEKEU-Q uarterback
Here we have "Zeke," K'Zeke" can be taken as a model for coming athlet-
ics of Phila Hi. He has carried the right spirit through four seasons. In his
freshman year he tipped the scales to 83 poundsg this season he was an absolute
necessity to the team. He was a line field general and made many thrilling runs
such as those in the Dover game. We wish him good luck in college. r
"Kenny" was a steady vicious player and was the best defensive man on the
squad. "Kenny" is a two year man and has an intelligent football head. He
was one of the best men on the team and we regret losing him. b
Givens was the heaviest man on the squad and proved to be a great lineman.
He could go in either at guard or tackle and play a good game. This was Beryl's
first try at football and he made good. So long, "Givens"!
. N . w
"Westy" did not come out until after the season started but he made up for
lost time. He could make holes for the backs and was a vicious tacklerg very
few teams gained through Westhafer. "Westy" is also leaving us this year.
This is "Bill's" second year on the varsity. "Bill," although small, was one
of the fastest men on the squad. He was always fighting hard and worked for
the good of the team. We are very sorry that "Bill" will not be with us next
"Fat" was one of the hard fighting Juniors. He was a hard man to stop
as many opposing teams know. He was always fighting and never quit 5 we wish
him a successful season in 1927.
There was no right end until "Swede" stepped out and filled the position to
overflowing. Tall and fast, "Swede" will be a mighty wingman for N. P. H. S.
"Trev" was the man behind the scenes. He assisted Fishel and was an
all around "Johnny on the spot." The admirable part of "Trev's" work was the
fact that he didn't crab 5 he always did his work and very often, someone else's.
He was a business man we couldn't have done without.
Record of Basketball Games
N. P. H. S. 21-Massillon 23. The old jinx that a team cannot win in a. new gym ran true to
form. The fellows played a good game, but could not get the breaks.
N. P. H. S. 33-Wooster 23, VVooster was easily defeated and Phila could have run up a large
score if she had tried. Coach Pfeiffer used all the subs and yet VVooster could not get ahead.
N. P. II. S. 29-Canton 24. The team worked like a clock and fought Canton off their feet:
Canton didn't know what it was all about until the end of the game and then they were on the small
N. P. H. S. 10-Dover 25. Phila surely had stage fright. They simply couldn't get going.
The fans could not be kept off the floor and this fact worried our players. Dover had a good team.
N. P. H. S. 20-Massillon 13. This score proves that Phila can beat Massillon when we are
not dedicating a gym. Massillon looked poor and Phila didn't have much trouble winning.
N. P. II. S. 24-VVarren 29. Warren was supposed to have a weak team but they proved to be
fightersg Warren fought Phila and got the breaks of the game,
N. P. H. S. 29-Adena 18. This game was good revenge for that football defeat of '25. Capt.
Smith and the rest played bang-up games and Adena never had a chance.
N. P. H. S. 17-Uhrichsville 15. Phila surely had a tough nut to crack in Uhrichsville. The
floor was small and the players were crowdedg the game was in doubt until Yaggi made a basket at
the last minute.
N. P. H. S. 21-Barberton 29. Barberton had a great team. The score stood 15-5 at the half.
Phila played a good game the second half but could not overscore the lead.
N. P. H. S. 22-Marietta 24. Marietta was lucky to win. The score at the end of the third
quarter was 21-10 in our favor. You never can tell.
N. P. H. S. 47-Uhrichsville 21. On our own Hoor we had things our own way. Uhrichs-
ville never came close. Everyone made points.
N. P. H. S. 33-Orrville 11. Orrville was supposed to be a good team till they struck Phila.
They couldn't get through our defense and Phila scored at will.
N. P. II. S. 23-VVarren 19. Surely this was a great game. The team played a fast hard game
and NVarren was bewildered. VVarren, nevertheless, had a good team.
N. P. H. S. 17-Dover 14. This was the fastest and hardest fought game of the season.
Dover was ahead nearly all the game but they couldn't score when they had to. Phila had some defense.
N. P. H. S. 23-Zanesville 37. "Nui Sed."
We are very fortunate in having a basketball coach like "Dutch." "Dutch"
knew basketball and could instill it into the boys. This being his first yearyout
of school, he made a splendid record. We sincerely hope that "Dutch" will be
back to show us how to play basketball in '28
CAPT. DEAN SMITH-Center
This is Dean's second year as captain and he deserved it. Dean, though
not very tall, was a wonderful center. He could handle the ball, he could shoot
and was a great defensive man. His men very seldom outscored him. We
hope that Phila will be graced with such captains in the future as Dean has been
in the past.
"Bob" was another of the mainstays. He was clever with the ball and sel-
dom did he lose itg he was a good shot and an accurate passer. He was fast and
broke up the opponents' team-work many times. "Bob" is another one that
graduates in '27.
This is also "Dougy's" first year as a regular. "Dougy" clung to his man
like a leech and his man made very few points. Douglas could also score and
pulled more than one game out of the fire. This is "Dougy's" last year and he
will be missed.
Q HENRY YAGGI-'Forward
This was "Joe's" first year on the varsity. He was fast and was a great
defensive player and also could sneak away from his guard and make many a
basket. "Joe" could play basketball with the rest of them and we wish that he
could be back next year.
-This is "Kenny's" second year on the varsity. He was not only a defensive
guard but also a scoring guardg many times he outscored his forward. He al-
ways was alert and stuck to his man. We are sorry to say that "Ken" is a senior.
This is also Flynn's second year on the team. Flynn could play his man to
a standstill, always fighting and working hard. Flynn still has one more year
and in that time he ought to be one of the best guards Phila ever had.
"Bud" was one of the utility men but he was a great asset to the team.
"Bud" was a slick little forward and bewildered his guard. He was one of the
best shots on the squad and we are very sorry that the class of '27 takes another
HARLEY SHAFFER-"SWEDEN-C enter
Although "Swede" didn't play regularly, he had that quality that made us
feel safe. He was an able player and a good center. As center for the Re-
serves he played consistently and did his duty by gtting the tip off nearly every
time. "Swede" will be the mainstay of next year's team.
RAYMOND STEM PLE-Manager
Cf course a basketball team isn't a real team if it hasn't a manager. The
team liked "Stemp" who always was on the job and who would do anything for
the team. He had the old Phila spirit and was always doing his bit. We hope
to have as good a one next year.

Nothing that we might say here would express the appreciation the girls
have for Coach. This was an "off" year for the girls' basketball team but it
was through no fault of our Coach. VVith tive letter girls as a foundation for
her team, Miss Barton will have better success next year.
SARA LCN 'l Sli GI LGICN- Cllflffllll
The fact that "Tudiel' shows no partiality to the members of her team is
one of the many characteristics which made her such a successful captain. lie-
tween halves and quarters she always gave good advice and encouraged the team
in every possible way. Vyhat more can be said of "Tudie's" ability as a player,
when one sees that she has earned three letters?
MA R GA R ICT JENKI NS--Forwarfi
This is Margaret's first year on the team and she surely earned her letter.
"Peg," who was the center of attraction, was the scoring machine in every game.
She plays with the ease and dexterity of a boy. 'lI"eg" still has another year on
the team and we wish her the best of luck.

Small but mighty! Mary was a whirlwind in action and was always at the
right place at the right time. Her guard always had a hard time keeping up with
her, and by the time the game was over, she usually had her guard "run raggedf'
This is Mary's last year on the team, and she certainly will be missed.
Edna also leaves us this year. "Eddie" held down a guard position, and
along with Ray and jane formed "The Invincible Three." Although she liked
to slide on the basketball floor, when she came up she always had the ball. Re-
member the Coshocton trip, "Eddie"?
' RACHEL LAR1MoRE-Guard
Rachel is another player who helps us in our defense. "Ray's" ever-ready
smile has always been trying to her forward. We can tell when she is around,
for she is always whistling. "Ray" won her letter this year and she will be one
who will form the foundation of next year's team. Good luck, "Ray"!
Jane was the guard who usually started the ball on its way to the basket
and we could always depend on jane to break up the opponents' plays. While
she was in the game she played her very hardest, and her forward had a pretty
hard time to make any baskets. She couldn't be spared so she played in every
game this year.
ANNA MARY GRIFFITH-Forward
Miss Barton surely made a "find" this year in Anna Mary. She can roll
them in from any angle and any distance. As she is just a Sophomore this year,
a brilliant future is predicted for Anna Mary.
Pauline may not say much but her presence is always felt by the opposing
team. Although she was a substitute this year, she kept her forward covered
as well as the rest. The fact that she was called for fouls a good many times
showed how hard she played. Next year's team will be strengthened by this
Millicent receives her first letter this year, and she deserves it for she has
been out for basketball four years. She plays forward and her guard surely
had a time sticking to her. Through her help we were able to hold Coshocton
to a tie, and at Newcomerstown, Millicent added four points to our score.

Baseball Season 1926
GILBERT ENOLD-"Gib" was one of the best pitchers New Phila ever
turned out, as Warren well knows. "Gib" could also play in the outfield, or
shortstop equally as well.
ROBERT WINSPEARE-"Bob" was the boy behind the plate. He caught
Enold and Doidge so well that he was elected captain for the 1927 baseball team.
Good luck, "Bob."
ROLAND MCMERRILL-This was "Mac's" third year on the team and
he surely was a heady player. He stopped anything that came toward second
WILLIAM WEICHSEL-"Bill's" qualities were unknown at the beginning
of the season, but he soon turned out to be a first class first sacker and also a good
JAMES CALE-"Jimmy" was the fielding marvel of the team. Hispreg-
ular position was shortstop but he covered all territory from third base to second.
CHARLES GILGEN-"Chuck" was one of the utility players. He was an
outfielder and you know that outfielders are all good hitters.
DEAN SMITH-Dean came out and grabbed the "hot corner" without
much trouble. He had a good arm and very few hits were made through him.
CARL MEISER-"Awltummy" was the sensational center-fielder. He was
the best fly-chaser on the team and a hitter of no mean ability.
STEPHEN THOMAS-"Steve" was the other first baseman on the team.
He could scoop 'em out of the dirt and save the infield from many errors.
I ADOLPHUS HENSEL-"Dolphy" could catch flies in the outfield with
anyone. He was one of the team's best hitters and was always full of pep.
WILLIAM DOIDGE-"Bill" was our southpaw pitcher and only a fresh-
man. "Bill" could hit and much is expected from him in the future.
EUGENE WAGES-"Bud's" persistent efforts won him his letter as utility
infielder. "Bud" worked hard and always did his best for Phila High.
GEORGE ROSENBERRY-"Boots" was a regular outfielder. Since he
was only a freshman, last year, with his ability, he should be one of the stars for
N. P. H. S. in 1927.
JOHN JONES-"Zeke" played shortstop and in the outfield. He always
worked hard and by his unceasing efforts won his letter.
Season of 1926
The track team this year possessed ability. The
means of transportation for the team was very inef-
ficient, however, as was shown in the case of the sec-
tional meet at New Concord. In spite of the fact that
several high class men were detained enroute to the
meet, Captain Bigler and his crew came through with
third place. In a dual meet with Coshocton, we took
nearly all first places besides many seconds and thirds.
This meet was held at the Fair Grounds, Dover. In
it Douglas showed the boys the right way to run the
hurdles, and H. Bigler took the mile with ease. A
triangular meet with Wooster and Massillon was held
at Massillon. In this meet we were set down at third
place. As most of the members of this team were
Sophomores and Juniors, we believe that Captain
Douglas will have a very successful season in '27,

Everyone knows that grand old place
Where by the layers of gum one may trace
A decade of students who occupied
That same old room so dignified,
All of us read the "lost and founds"
With which the blackboard always abounds,
at the funny ones we grin.
Who would smile if he couldn't be in
Think of the notes that wouldn't get passed,
The leaves with their Autumn
all of the questions that couldn't be asked
missing of many a merry laugh,
hilly High wasn't able to have
place where Seniors get their sleep,
place where Juniors l'Physics-ly" Weep,
place where Sophomores take up space,
you've guessed that very place-

Till life's work is done.
Oh! Give me the life of the open road,

The Trials of a Freshman are Numerous
AST year at this time I was thinking what an easy time I would have this
year, but I certainly have changed my mind. Although a freshman has only
four studies, his path is not as easy as I had pictured it.
To begin with, there is that ancient language called Latin. Along with
this is algebra which makes eighth grade arithmetic look simple and from which
we derive nothing except x's and z.ero's. Next comes that- great problem called
"Science," carrying with it an abundant supply of yes and no quizzes graded:
fifteen for incorrect ones, and five for correct ones. Last but not least, comes
our own "lingo" called English, carrying with it many of Shakespeare's plays.
Not only are our studies trials to us, but there is the upperclassmen's sal-
utation of "Why, hello, there, Freshie" with sarcasm in every tone. Outside of
twenty to twenty-five Algebra problems, eighteen to twenty Latin sentences to
define, and twelve page science lesson to outline, and about three exercises in
English or an act of the Merchant of Venice to read, our path is beset with roses.
WILLIAM WEBSTER, '30
55 AILY TIMES!" "Cleveland Press!" yelled the little ragged newsboy
to the passers-by on the main street of New Philadelphia. Despite his
raggedness, John Davis was a handsome boy and attracted the attention
of everyone, but especially of one distinguished looking man, who was
a daily customer.
John Davis was a boy who once enjoyed the good things of life. His
father earned a good salary and was able to give to his wife and six children
Uohn was the oldestl the luxuries of life. They owned a beautiful home on
East Avenue and a Ford, which was a rare thing in 1910. But, misfortune over-
took this happy family. The father became ill, and with one year of doctor
bills, surgeon bills, nurse bills, and, finally, the undertaker's bill, the family was
left in poverty. The grand house, the fine furniture, and the car were sold.
This widowed mother struggled bravely with poverty, and her oldest, John,
was trying to help her out by selling papers after school.
Although John Davis was new at the business of selling papers, he was
already causing his rivals to go to another section of the business district to
sell papers. As I have said before, one man had been a regular customer of
his. He liked the boy and he knew that there was something fine under those
As usual, one bright evening, this man came along and bought a paper.
As soon as he had turned to go, John noticed that a ten dollar bill was lying
on the sidewalk near him. He knew at once that it belonged to the man who
had just bought a paper from him. Although the man was not more than fifty
feet away, John did not make a move to return the money. He picked it up,
looked at it, and put it into his pocket.
That night he could not sleep. He turned and twisted, and twisted and
turned. Two hours had already passed. He thought to himself, "Why couldn't
he have the money? He had found it. He was poor and needed the money,
while the other man was rich and would not miss it. He would not keep it for
himself, but give it to his mother, telling her he had found it. That was true.
But, if he told his mother the whole truth, would she approve of it?" He knew
it was not right, but they needed the money. Finally, after useless arguing in
favor of keeping the money, he decided to give the money back to the man.
Immediately, he dropped off to sleep.
The next day when his regular customer came along and bought a paper,
he put his hand into his. pocket and drew out the bill. "Here, mister," John
said, you dropped this bill yesterday, I should have returned it sooner, but I
The man looked at the boy and said, "I missed the money last evening,
but I did not have the least idea where I had lost it. Thank you." He gave
John a dollar for returning the money and went on his way.
Seven years later, John Davis was about to graduate from N. P. H. S.
with the highest honors, and hearing that some men and some banks were will-
ing to lend to poor boys, who have good health in mind and body, the money
to put them through college, he went to visit the president of the Citizens Na-
tional Bank. After waiting about ten minutes, he was admitted to the private
office of the president of the bank. The man-the boy-the boy recognized
the man as the man to whom he had returned that ten dollar bill. The boy
stated his purpose in as brief a manner as possible, and waited for the answer.
The man, although he had not helped a boy through college and his bank did
not invest its money in such a way as that, lent him the money out of his own
pocket, Why should he not help him? This boy was a good investment. He
had never, before or since, met such an honest boy.
He graduated from college with the highest honors and secured an en-
viable position. He worked and saved, and within four years those notes and
interest were paid off. He certainly was relieved to have all obligations dis-
A friend of his, who had not made good in college, became a proprietor
of a clothing store. On his way home from work one evening, John stopped
to see his college chum, Alfred Madison. This friend told him how successful
he was in business. He could buy suits for ten dollars and sell them for one
hundred dollars. John warned his friend against the dangers of carrying on such
a business. His friend waved aside his objections. John left perplexed.
Several days later a friend of his gave a party for a young girl, Grace
Ryan, who had just made this town her home. John and Alfred met Grace and
at once both became devoted to her. Friendship continued among the three,
but the prospects looked well for Alfred, and against John.
Alfred's parents were well off. They put him through college, flt took
him six years to finish a four year coursej, and then set him up in business which
was, at present, yielding him a profit. Already, he had a large sum of money laid
by. But, John had to work his way through college, and then spent four years
paying back what he had borrowed. He was obliged to help educate his youn-
ger sisters and brothers. He could not save, although he allowed himself only
the necessities of life.
Six months later,-Grace gave a party and John and Alfred were present.
Tonight, Grace seemed to turn her attention to John. John wondered at this,
but he was not kept waiting long.
Between dances, John, Alfred and Grace retired to the living room. The
only other occupants of the room were her father and his friend. Grace in-
troduced John and then Alfred.
Her father's friend looked at Alfred a moment and then said, "So, this is
the young man that owns that clothing store on High Street. I am glad to
meet the man who can sell me a ten dollar suit of clothes for one hundred and
fifty. If you do not mend your ways of selling, I shall report you to the author-
ities." The look on his face suited his words.
Alfred, at first, appeared dumbfounded. He did not know what to say. He
argued with the gentleman that he had dealt in clothing for sometime and that
he sold only goods that were of the best value. The gentleman quietly replied
that he could prove that he had sold his goods for at least ten times as much
as he paid for them.
Alfred turned to Grace saying, "Surely, Grace you do not believe this."
"I have known it for quite a time," she said firmly.
Alfred tried to treat the public squarely, but it was too late now. The
character of his store was soon known all over the city and Alfred had to sell
out below cost. He went to another city and started a store in which he treated
the people honestly, but what was the use? The one thing that he had wanted
in life was beyond his reach.
John won Grace, and although they did not have much to start out in life
with, they succeeded. Grace had a husband who was poor, but honest. He
possessed health and a good mind. Steadily, he advanced in the company and
by the time he reached middle age, he was made president of the company.
What if John had yielded to that temptation of the ten dollars? It would
not have been easier for him to resist other temptations of this nature. It would
have been easy for him to cheat in school. He would have tried to get the best
of his employers and thus he would have been fired instead of being advanced.
His resisting that temptation did not go unrewarded. He had obtained a col-
lege education and had won Grace.
CATHARINE CRAIG, '27
ROM all of God's world of animals, I love the dog most. A dog lacks
but one thing, and that is speech. A dog is capable of such a clean,
whole-hearted, self-sacrificing love for its master or play fellow, and
shows its simple trusting love in such cunning ways, that I think it
is impossible not to be attracted to them.
My dog was a collie. She was about twenty-four inches high, with
a white nose, white feet, white collar, and a white tip on her tail. The rest
was golden brown. She had a big heart that was as golden as her fur,
and seemed entirely out of proportion with her soft, furry body. As she
grew bigger, her heart seemed to grow bigger also.
I called my dog "Trixie," Trixie and I were constant companions.
When she was two years old, I had a little black and white kitten given
to me. Trixie had never liked a cat, and when I laid the kitten in front
of her, she stalked stiff-legged up and down in front of it. The kitten
showed no sign of alarm. The next day Trixie went up and licked the
face of my kitten. I had named it "Cuddles" because of its habit of curl-
ing up close to me, and falling asleep.
My kitten never ran away, and seldom moved around from one part
of the house to the other. Later I learned the reason. It was blind.
Trixie never acted jealous or selfish towards Cuddles. Its puppy mind
seemed to realize her helpless plight. Trixie never tried to take her milk,
and often saved Cuddles from hard bumps.
After a month had passed, I finally taught Trixie to carry Cuddles
in her mouth, by the nape of the neck.
We lived in the suburbs of the city on a macadam road. One day
it rained and the macadam was very slippery. Trixie and Cuddles had
been in the house all morning, so I let them go out doors for exercise.
The road was straight and wide, and a tempting place to speed. As it
happened, Cuddles got frisky, and started on a headlong run which led
straight for the road, Trixie in pursuit. As Cuddles got on the road, a
truck came speeding toward her. The driver blew his horn, and tried to
stop, but it was useless. Cuddles was frightened at the sudden toot of the
horn and crouched down upon the road. Trixie ran out into the road and
seized her by the nape of the neck, and turned to go back but it was too
late. The truck hit Trixie. Cuddles was thrown to one side unharmed,
but Trixie was fatally injured. My Trixie lived about twenty minutes
after she was struck. Even in her last suffering moments, Trixie was not
in too much pain to lick the sightless eyes of Cuddles, and give a few lov-
ing "yips" as the life blood ran from her big brave heart.
Cuddles seemed lost after Trixie was killed, and slept a good part
of the remaining six months she lived. Now there are two solitary little
white crosses in the yard which mark the graves of these two much loved

BAFFLING MYSTERY SOLVED
The great mystery which has puzzled
the citizens of New Philadelphia for the

utation of being the widest awake news-

news, which since has been conveyed to
the largest newspaper syndicate in the
Mr. Snooper, world-renowned detec-
tive of O. Howitt Burns' agency has been
sniffing at the gate of the mystery for
some time. But he has just recently
made his startling discovery.
Because of the fact that there has been
so much preliminary discussion, we have
neglected to state the mystery.
The mystery is: Why do Milars have
a fence? This mystery has baffled the
leading detectives of the U. S., including
the staff of the 'Snakes' Hips," for many
years, but after all Mr. Snooper has
proved the solution very simple. The
fence is merely to keep Jane in 81 Bill out.

Junior faults are. manyg
Seniors' only two-
Everything they say,
And everything they do.

"This smells like tongue to me in vin-
NEFF AND .NAGELY
"We Undertake Anything"
Suppose a man should walk the street
With trousers to his knee,
With big goloshes on his feet-
A little hat set impishly
Upon a mass of hair.
Suppose his face were painted,
And his neck and arms were bare!
Why, they'd throw the boob in prison,
And they'd never set him free-
And still you hear folks talking
Of sex equality!
They stood on the bridge at midnight,
He tickled her nose with his toes,
For he was only a mosquito
And the bridge was the bridge of her
Boys should love their sisters,
But so good have I grown
That I love other men's sisters
As well as my own.
My friend the Poet often tells
QI never see 'em set in printj
How many epic poems he sells
For cash enough to swamp the mint.
Apollo claimed that with his Lyre
He charmed the birds and brooks until,
As each clear measure echoed higher,
All living nature felt the thrill!
