Dear Friends of the Class of 1918:
The invitation to write a letter for the "Lavender and White" brings back a whole host of
memories that have surged through my brain often during these past eight months. It's a most
pleasurable sensation just to dream about 'ithe good old days" when I commanded "l..et's 'have it
quiet," to picture historic evenings at Woodmen Hall, to recall roof-wracking basketball games
followed by "Wiener" feeds in the high school or chop suey sundaes at Eibneris. I seldom 'think
about the hours I spent in marking papers and red-inking caustic thoughts upon them, or those feverish
flurries of plain grindstone labor that came every month when I prepared the reports that were greeted
with smiles or tears.
It goes Without saying that I have often wished I could be with you this year as I planned last
spring. But circumstances elected me to something different. I didnit enter the army for education
or experience or adventure, 'but I am learning many lessons that I confidently believe will make me
a more efficient man in my profession as a teacher than I might otherwise be, for the army is a school
in which men are educated and drilled to proficiency in the old and honorable profession of arms.
Almost unconsciously I find myself always comparing it to a school, noting good instruction and
poor, seeking out ideas that I can take back to civilian life with me to make more successful the
schools which prepare us for peaceful pursuits.
I have come across some officers here who are the best instructors I have ever known. Captain
Owen, a Britisher, came here last fall and has taught this whole division the English system of 'bay-
onet-fighting. I-le's a veritable dynamo of energy, a most capable organizer, and he certainly is a
pedagogue in the real sense, for he surely understands the principles of pedagogy, and gets results
from instruction. Then there's l..ieut. Colonel "Sandy" lVlcNab, a gruff-voiced, red-headfed Scotch-
man, whose hobby is shooting. In the common sense of the term, he's a bachelor, but in reality
he chose the Army for his bride years ago and has been loyal to her for twenty-four 'hours a day
ever since. Heis a tireless worker and has evolved a system of individual riHe instruction that has
brought phenomenal results. By a careful analysis he has made separate and distinct each detailed
act in correct shooting, and then he drills and drills his men to what the German General Staff calls
a "miraculous exactitude of detail." The man who only gets the form 95 per cent correct won't
get 95 per cent results on the target range ,by any means. I-le mu-st be so schooled in the use of that
rifle that he will unconsciously handle it correctly in the excitement of battle, so Sandy demands l00
per cent efficiency. I found it a liberal education to take a course in which the standards were so high.
If it werenit for making my letter so long as to be tiresome, lid tell you all about a wonderful
British colonel who delivered three long lectures to the officers of the division with a spirit that recalled
to my mind, 'historically inclined as it is, that long line of Britishers who labored for liberty:
Hampden, Pym, Eliot, Burke, Pitt, Gladstone. Don't tell me that you have forgotten who those men
But I'm Writing too much of my own interests. Let it suffice to say that when the American
army goes back to civil life, it will take with it a love of native land and an ardor for America that
will amount to a hair-trigger patriotism. Thatis not merely the sentiment of a shave-tail second lieu-
tenant, itis the spirit ofthe draftees themselves after they have been in the service for a couple of
I have been able to follow events in the N. U. I-I. S. through "The Graphosn fairly well and
have noted with pleasure the fine record of both basketball teams. Redwood Falls still seems to
have a strangle hold on debating supremacy as far as New Ulm is concernedg that always worries
me, and Victor will remember the high resolves which he and I made a year ago concerning R. F.
But apparently we must leave that stump for the next generation.
At whatever place I may again take up teaching, I hope to find such friends as I have in your
class. I canit forget you people as a group or as individuals, and wherever I see you again, in New
Ulm, Chicago or Paris, there will be a glad meeting and fond reminiscences of 'ithe good old days."
All that's finest and most worth while in life is what I wish for you.
A P. W. I-IUTSON.

And the Spirit said, 'tLet there be colors," and there were colors, the orange of the departing day and

It has not taken the Sophomores long to show that the strength of their class lies in its quality,
rather than quantity.
The first venture of the class this year was a Hallow-een party, which was given for the faculty
and which turned out to be a grand success.
An active part has been taken by the entire class in patriotic work, as well as in athletics, in
which it has been well represented.
The strong point of the class, however, seems to be in literary work, for one of its members,
Thelma Rinke, has won first place in the Declamatory contest, both this year and last. Cyrus
Frederickson was a member of the debating team this year.
The class officers this year are:
CYRUS FREDERICKSON . . President
AURELIA FORSTER . Vice President
LOLA LIESCH . . . Secretary
Louis KOEHLER .... . Treasurer
The honorary member of the class is Mr. Schrammel.
The class colors are: Emerald and gold.

The class of l92l entered the New Ulm High School with the hope of being a banner class.
They have continued and shall continue to strive toward this goal with steadily increasing energy and
Soon after school opened the class was organized and the following oflicers elected: Harold
Olsen, President: George Berndt, Vice Presidentg Marie Miller, Treasurer, and Elmer Tappe, Sec-
retary. Miss Eggar and Mr. Viergiever were elected honorary members and the class colors chosen
were orange and black.
The class was well represented in high school activities. From our ranks issued several stalwart
gridiron warriors, and our "Mike" and his achievements are too well known to necessitate further elu-
cidation. The Declamatory and Oratorical contests were the cause of much interest to the Fresh-
men, some of whom participated in them.
The principal financial enterprises of the class were the successful upholding of their end of
the Liberty Bond purchase, and of the soldiers' candy fund. The share of the class was by no
means negligible, yet the response was hearty and the contributions liberal.
A class of about ninety members when entering the High School should make a name for
itself that will not soon be forgotten. They will endeavor to set a standard for the future classes of
the New Ulm High School that may be looked up to and one that is worth striving for.
U 2 Normal 4 apartment
There are ten thousand common schools in the State of Minnesota. Several years ago it was
found that the five State Normal Schools were hardly able to meet the demands of all the graded
The question arose, K'Where are we to get teachers for Minnesota's Rural and Semi-graded
Schools?', At one time anyone, who could pass certain tests, was allowed to teach. Although these
teachers knew the 'swhatl' they did not know the Hhowf' They learned the Uthown by practicing
on the unfortunate children who came under their care.
To remedy this state of affairs, Minnesota has established High School Normal Training depart-
ments. These are to prepare the students to teach in rural and semi-graded schools. The course
offered in these departments includes a thorough review of the common branches, primary handiwork,
nature study, agriculture, pedagogy, and rural school management, besides observation and teaching.
This teaching is done under supervision in both city and rural schools.
New Ulm's present normal class has eleven members, four post-graduates and seven seniors.
The Normalites are agreed that one of the most interesting factors in their work is the teaching they
do in the grades. Each one gets in at least forty minutes of this a day, for eight months in the city
schools and two weeks in the rural schools of the neighborhood.
Miss Ida Koch, who for a number of years has had charge of the New Ulm High School
Normal Department is very efficient in the art of molding raw recruits into finely polished teachers.
There is no doubt but that she will keep up the good record and this year again send out "rural
school marmsn who hope to be a credit to her.

Under the skillful guidance of Captain Chick Olson and the
excellent coaching ability of Coach Bergtold, our football team
this year showed a remarkable improvement over that of last year.
Visions of the district championship were at all times gleaming
through the stormy clouds covering the southern Minnesota foot-
ball skies. Our team met with varying fortunes until the surprise
of the season came.
The manager had arranged a game with Blue Earth, which
High School was said to have one of the strongest teams in the
state. With a coach, known as one of the best in the state, they
were making a race for the state championship. In spite of the
overwhelming odds against them, the New Ulm boys, renowned
for their pluck, went into the game undaunted and through per-
severance and snappy playing came out victorious by a score of
7-0. We'll never forget how Meyer Shapiro, the fast little half-
back, grabbed that pass out of the air, jumping right out of a
number of would-be tacklers, and how, after stiff-arming them,
placed the pigskin between the goal posts at the other end of the
field. After the game the boys received a compliment from the
Blue Earth coach, who remarked that New Ulm. had one of the
pluckiest little teams he had ever seen. A week later the boys
scored an easy victory over the St. James eleven. Then, in a hard-luck contest, the New Ulm team
lost the district championship to Madelia, by a score of I5-7. On November I7, the St. Peter team
went down to defeat by a 52-6 score. On Thanksgiving Day the greatest game of the season was
played, when the team went up against the Alumni. University men who witnessed the game stated
that it was as interesting a game as any the University played. Such men as "Dick,' Massopust
fstanding 6 feet, 4 inches in his stocking feetl, Minnesota, all-state college guard for two years, and
stellar linesman of the crack Carleton squad that pushed the bitter pill of defeat down Chicago Uni-
versity,s throat, Dr. Amann, peerless Marquette halfbackg Schooly, South Dakota all-state high
school quarterback, and a score of other college, university, and old high school stars, stopped our
crack backfield for three quarters, but in the fourth period the High School team ripped the collec--
tion of college luminaries to tatters, and crashed through the
crumbling line of beaten, but game, sports for the first touchdown
of the game.
The Alumni, however, revived and came back with a few '
new men, and rushed over a touchdown. Their attempt at goal Y A
failed. Then both teams settled down, grinding away at each
other for the rest of the never-to-be-forgotten gridiron battle. V5, ,'.e
This closed the second football season of the I-Iigh School team
and the squad of 1917 has won undying praise both 'because of
their good record, and manly sportsmanship. V, :VV if

Cgirls' fgaskethztll i
The girls' basketball team this year is certainly to be complimented for their good work through-
out the season. It was the first year that the girls were given the opportunity to go out of town, and
this eventually helped towards working up their ability for basketball. However, they did not enter
for district championship this year.
The first team consisted of the following players:
Louise Fritsche Ccaptainl Katharine Weiser
Gladys Grussendorf Helen Berg
Aurelia Forster Eleanore Biebl
Irene Stamm, Elizabeth Russell fSu'bs-titutesl
The girls were out for practice every time, and fought hard not only in real games, but also in
practice games, to come up to their standard. Out of seven games played during the season, only
one was lost by our team. Sleepy Eye was the first team to play here, and bumped into a score of
43-3, in favor of our girls. Having gained thenecessary confidence by that victory, a game was
arranged with St. Peter. This game again proved our worth, the result 'being 32-I6, in our favor. St.
James, our ancient rivals were our first out-of-town opponents. Being handicapped by a strange Hoor,
our girls returned with smaller end of an I8-I4 score, but were hard hghters and game losers.
Nevertheless, the girls did not give up their spirit, and made a trip to Mankato to play the Mankato
Commercial College team. In spite of a new floor to play on, our girls won by the score of Zl-l2.
The next game was with Fairfax. Our girls made an easy job of it, walking away with the score,
55-l. The last game with an out-of-town team was played here with St. James. Each team know-
ing the other's capabilities from the former game, a hard fight ensued. However, it was soon shown
which was the better team and the game ended with a 36-I I victory for New Ulm. To end the
season, the first team played the second team, made up of old-time satellites. These were two extremely
well matched teams, and the result was doubtful, but the game ended with the iirst team doubling
the score of the second team, I2-6.
The girls wish to thank the coaches for their work done in training them, and with a little more
development next year we will look forward to a district championship.

Again our high school had the honor
of representing this district in the cham-
pionship tournament held at Carleton Col-
lege March Zlst and 22d, this year, be-
ing able to back their right with a clean
slate of victories.
After a few weeks of hard practice,
Coach I-lenry picked his team, and after
the first two practice games, we realized
that we had a team that we could well
boast of. As in former years, the prac-
tice games with the Zoeglinge and the col-
lege permitted us to estimate the strength
of our team, and when the team defeated
the D. M. l... C. College, which boasted
the strongest team it had had for years,
glimmers of the district championship arose
in the minds of the students.
Olson, Burg and Shapiro were the only
three veteran "left-overs" of last year's
team. Burg was immediately slated for
the center position, Shapiro was placed at
forward, and Chick retained his old posi-
tion at guard. Wiedenmann soon showed
himself capable of holding down the com-
panion position with Olson, and during
the entire season held the opposing for-
wards to an average of three baskets a
game. The greatest find of the season,
' however, proved to be "Mike" Kumm,
our star forward. In the ten games played he averaged seven baskets to a game. The other men
who helped to make our team a winning combination were Ochs, Eibner and Schulke.
After winning five straight victories, Morgan, Springfield, Sleepy Eye, Redwood Falls, and
St. Peter, being the victims, we learned that Tracy, Madelia and Cottonwood still remained to be
contended with, each of these teams claiming the district honors. Then followed a series of games
in which our team met and eliminated each of these teams in succession. Tracy was invited over to
come and try our gym, and although they boasted seven consecutive victories, were defeated by our
boys by the overwhelming score of 48-l 4. A week later the Madelia team was vanquished in a hard-
fought battle on the Fairmont floor, the score of this game being 34-19. The last game for the dis-
trict honors was played on March l5th, when our boys went to Lamberton to cook the Cottonwood
team's goose. The game was a fight from start to finish. At the end of the first half the Cottonwood
team led by a score of I3-9, -but our boys showed they had the necessary Ucomebackn and in the
second half literally swamped them, winning by a final count of 35-20.
In the Carleton tournament, however, the boys did not have much chance to show their basket-
ball ability, as they immediately ran up against the state.champions for this year. As four men of
the Waseca team were given berths on the mythical all-state team, three on the first and one on the
second, our boys need not be ashamed of their defeat, although overwhelmed by quite a margin.
The basketball season this year proved to be undeniably a success, and although three of the
best men, Burg, Olson and Wiedenmann, are lost by graduation, they leave a good nucleus behind
them, and the hope that around the remaining members of this yearfs team, a team can be built
which will not only take the district honors, but also bring back the state championship, which honor
has not been in our high school since l9l0. i
Basketball meant more to the girls this year than
any other year. The season was opened with every
sign of spirit and enthusiasm that could be displayed.
First team players were not allowed to play on the
class teams. This caused some difficulties among the
class teams, but each class furnished members for their
The Freshman girls won the inter-class champion-
ship this year. The formidable sextet lined up as
Esther Wiedenmann fcaptainl forward.
Margaret Bentdahl, forward.
Ylone Bentdahl, guard.
Katharine Koehler, guard.
l-lelen Woebke, center.
Blanche Burg, running center.
The first game of the season was the junior-
Freshman game. The resulting score of 8-I favored
the Freshmen. Then the winners were ready to meet
the Sophomores. The Freshman-Sophomore game re-
sulted in a score of 28-I l, in favor of the Freshmen.
In order to give the Seniors a crack at the champion-
ship there was a Senior-Junior game. The two opposing teams were well balanced, and the game
proved to be very close, the score being 5-3, in favor of the Juniors. The Junior-Sophomore game
was then played, giving the Sophomores the victory, 6-2. In the last game of the season, in what
proved to be the determining factor in the race for the championship, the Seniors played the Fresh-
men. The enthusiasm and loyalty of the Freshmen proved to be the determining factor and the Fresh-
men carried off the coveted honors, with the score, I6-Z. If the Freshmen keep up their basketball
'6pep," they will no doubt make up part of the first team next year, as the greater number of our
first team players will graduate this year.

For the first time in their high school career, the present Junior Class carried away the bas-
ketball honors in the inter-class games. The first game of the series was an easy victory for the
Juniors, the small Freshmen losing
by a score of 28-4.
The second game between the
sophomores and the Seniors, the
latter being twice holders of the class
championship, having captured it in
their Freshman and Junior years,
was one of the closest and bitterest
fought games of the series. Most of
the Seniors lacked practice, as the
other class activities demanded too
much of their time, but they put up
one of the hardest struggles of the
series, and lost only by a score of

It was the Autumn of l9l4. The Goddess of Summer, reluctant to leave, was tendering an
affectionate farewell to the earth. She enveloped the earth with a balmy, odoriferous atmosphere,
sending the transcendent rays of the summer sun once more to kiss the landscape good-byeg and to
crown the glory of the scene, she had painted the morning skies a glowing red, to symbolize the
initiative and youthful strength of the youth, her child, she was leaving, as her annual gift to the com-
munity. The heavens of midday she had painted a spotless White to symbolize his purity, and high
moral standards, and on this eve of her departure she o'ercast the heavens with a wonderful hue of
deep blue to symbolize his high purposes and aims, and the spirit of unity he was to show in his walk
on the pathway of mortal life.
Slowly the sun sank. The glory of the scene of his birth was lingering yet a while. Reluc-
tantly the mother in the fading blue of the evening sky was leaving her child. The last day of sum-
mer faded away into the darkness of the night.
The stars waxed and waned. The sun rose again, not the summer sun, but the smiling sun
of Autumn. There in the splendor of the Autumnal sun with bent knees and bowed head knelt the
last of the bountiful gifts of the departed Goddess of Summer. It was her own child, the child of
the summer of 'I4.
And after a short time he arose, and behold! he was a tall, stately young giant with great appeal-
ing blue eyes, and heavy blond curls.
Every year departing Summer had left a child to be educated in the school of life, but seldom
had mankind seen such perfect lines of manly beauty, such limbs, such muscular development. As he
stood there in his loin cloth, people said, HlVlayhap there is possibility hidden in him, we may accustom
him to our ways, and make of him a potent factor in our national lifef, And wisely acting upon the
suggestion the foster parents of the child sent with 'him a guide to conduct him to the wide, marble-
pillared halls of the N. U. H. S.
And there he learned of the ways of other men and was content. But soon, as is the nature
of man, his fellow students at this great institution of learning began by divers means to torment him,
hoping to rouse his ire. The gentle youth unknowing of the ways of man patiently submitted. And
his elders, making sport of the. sweet innocence of childhood, continued in their un-befitting conduct.
For many days and nights the youthful giant let the weight of the burdensome torment rest
upon hisbroacl shoulders. But as things came to pass, one day the eldest of the elders elected a
spokesman who addressed the reserved youth thus: '60 thou youthful fool, who art very awkward
and unknowing of the ways of the wiseg list thou unto my sagacious wordsgu and the wiseacre spoke
thus: mlqhere is an object which is alive, eats food, drinks water, speaks poor English, wears clothes
and keeps a barrel around its head for fear it will burst. It usually has large ears and green eyes.
lts habits vary, as it is seen anywhere between the North Pole and that of the South. It is often
found around nurseries.
"Its habits are very strange, as it mimics mankind very closely, and eats anything that it can
find, though milk and green grass usually compose its food in the summertime.
i"It is fond of roaming and sometimes never goes to bed at all. You will usually find it at

'SA peculiar characteristic of this animal is that when it is only half grown it has a head larger
than its elders, and feet that are as large as when full grown.
"When it has attained full growth it becomes incorrigible, and has to be fed with a bottle ex-
tended through the bars of its cage with a forked stick.
"List yeg we, the eldest of your elders, do here apply this description, as proper and befitting,
And after the spokesman of the gallant elders has thus spat his sarcasm and irony upon the young
giant, he publicly, by means of mouth and periodicals, ridiculed him.
0 If f r e, f MU
And as they still stood there, face to face, a miracle happened. Out of those deeply expressive,
tender blue eyes of the young Leviathan shot angry darts of flame and anger. His smooth forehead
became wrinkled and his breast held in confinement a force, a rising passion-a thirst for vengeance
hitherto unknown to the tender, submissive, chivalrous youth. He threw the great cloak from his
shoulders, thus displaying his great arms. His muscles 'twitched' and rippled like wavelets beneath his
skin, he shouted defiance, and bade them come on.
In cowardly fashion his skilled elders rushed upon him, hoping to overcome this awkward youth
easily, and bend his neck to the yoke.
The youthful giant calmly waited for the first of the onrushing opponents and, gras-ping him,
summoned every ounce of strength in a supreme effort, and bodily lifted him above his head, and
hurled him over his back. Perfectly in keeping with the spirit thus far displayed, the other elders
fled. And from that time he was duly respected and has contributed his meagre share to the build-
ing-up of his beloved high school.
That first summoning of all his strength in the effort which strained his every muscle to the yield-
ing point was the organization of the Freshmen of 'l4. They were the first Freshmen class in the
history of the High School to organize. This step was necessitated by the conduct of the worthy UP-
PER classmen. Every Freshman responded nob

How I envied my fellow students who had exhibited real efficiency and promised a good future.
If I only knew of their future I might benefit by imitating. What a wonderful thing it would be to
see them advanced ten or fifteen years! Here my meditation was interrupted by little Donald's en-
trance with his arms full of toys, evidently planning a noisy entertainment for everyone within the
radius of two blocks. A few pieces of candy, however, were enough to induce him to retreat, and
this he did in such a hurry that only a few toys accompanied him.
In the remaining heaps I spied a kaleidoscope, an instrument in which I had always found en-
tertainment. I picked it up and looked through it. There before my eyes stood an elaborate hexa-
gon in the most delicate colors. On turning the instrument through a small angle the hexagon disap-
peared and another, equally beautiful took its activity, becoming evident in the background. It is
impossible! No! It is true! Opening up before my eyes was a great Court Room packed with
people. Their faces were turned in one direction intently listening to an eloquent orator. With a little
closer observation I identified the speaker as Victor Reim. There he stood pleading for an honest
Q 'emi f' B
man who had lost his fortune and was unjustly accused. Behind the large mustache I discovered
Richard Olson, the man being tried. Opposite him, questioning him, sat the other member of the part-
nership of Reim 61 Wager. One click of the kaleidoscope and the scene was gone forever, but an-
other took its place. As the curtain rose, there in the glimmer of the spotlight of the Strand, New
York, stood Irene Stamm, acting the role of Marguerite in Faust. At her right stood a princely youth
who proved to be Floyd Hughes in the role of Faust. At the rear stood Mephistopheles in his bril-
liant red, acting his part most cleverly. This man with the horns was Bernard Poehler. Leading the
great orchestra, stood a man with a fair face that, in spite of the fact that his flowing hair partly cov-
ered his features, clearly showed the lines of Frank Hofmeister. In a box at the left sat a stately
woman, accompanied by a man in full dress. The two could not be mistaken, they were Freda
Behnke and Fred Irrgang. The old scene faded away, a new one appeared.
In a gathering of women discussing the national election, I recognized several faces, namely,
that of Helen Barth and Glorene Dirks. They were speaking of the possibility of Virginia Palmer's
election to the Presidency and that of Emily Groebner to the Vice Presidency.
In the next scene, farm life was made immediately attractive when I saw the orderly manner
in which Edmund Lebert and Leona Pfaender operated a dairy. From the dairy, with a milk pail
on her arm, came Oleta Tauer, an elderly, but carefree maiden, who ordered a man servant around
with the haughtiness of a lieutenant. The man was none other than Roman Penkert. just as the
situation became the most interesting the picture faded.
I was removed to a great project of engineering on the Pacific Ocean. It was the building of a
great Pontoon bridge between the United States and Japan. I found, after a long search, the chief
engineer in the person of Norman Johnson. He wore an intelligent expression that seemed to say the
project was to be a wonder of the world. But, whom have we here? A woman in foreman,s clothes
coming up to take orders from Johnson. It was Helen Berg. I must admit I never saw a more
enthusiastic Workman. Sure enough the kaleidoscope was on the job again.
I saw the latest edition of the Citizen of the lfVorlct, the great American daily. On the front
page, in heavy print, was the story of the wreck of the Trans-Atlantic freight and passenger airship,
Valley of the Nile. Fourteen hundred lost their lives, but among the survivors were the music stu-
dents, Bertha Kral, Beatrice Oliver, and Gladys Crussendorf, returning from Europe. The disaster
is attributed to the faulty directions given by the captain, Theodore Crone.
In the corner of the third sheet I saw an advertisement of the firm Binder or Paulson, selling
motors run on air that were guaranteed to give satisfaction.
In the margin of the same page I saw that the Citizen of the World was owned and operated
by John Woebke. On the staff of reporters were Bessie Russell and Herbert Mclvor. Their ability
spoke for itself in the stirring news.
Then on the fourth page was an announcement of the first lecture of a scientific course by Esther
Schaefer, Gudrun Melheim and Nora Halverson.
On the seventh page I noticed the name Katharine Weiser signed to the authorship of the con-
tinued story of that paper, In the Clutches of an Infant.
In the want ads I found Joe Nvelter looking for a job as manager of a Prune Dusting Cor-
On the athletic page was a picture of a strong, well-built man, who advised the people to
stake the family plate on him in his fight with the world champion. This audacious man went by
the name of Alfred Wiedenmann.
Running through the society notes I saw that Louise Fritsche, an American envoy to Paris, was
entertained by the English embassy to the United States of Russia on the Fiji Islands. This con-
cluded the big news that I found in the daily paper. A feeling came upon me that one more scene
would appear, and it did. I

Have you ever taken time to compare the N. U. H. S. of former years with our High School of
the present day? If you have, you can easily see how different things now are than formerly. When
our brothers and sisters attended High School, there were none of the present Literary Societies, no
Declamatory Contests, no Bread-making Contests, and no such exhibitions of superfluous energy in the
form of Football and Basketball parades, as are common today.
We naturally think, "Why did they not have some of these organizations?" This, if seriously
considered, may easily be understood. Not only we students, but even the people of town, have
been maintaining and supporting these new organizations the last few years, because there is some in-
visible force behind us, which gives us upepf' It is something that makes us take pride in everything
common to our school life, and makes us wish that we might do more for our glorious school. Per-
haps this invisible force was not present in the school life of our brothers and sisters, or was just gain-
ing its foundation in those days. At any rate, we all feel it within us at the present time, and may
there ever be present in future students of our High School, that school spirit, uppermost in the hearts
of the present students.

We Seniors wish to express our appreciation to the faculty for everything they have done for
us which has made our last year at High School such a pleasant and profitable one.
In later years, when we will look back upon our High School days, no doubt our first
thoughts will be of the faculty, for we appreciate their spirit of fellowship more than we can say.
Their co-operation, both in work and play, has helped us greatly in every way.
It is not without regret, however, that we recall certain instances in which we thoughtlessly
worried and irritated them. We think, "Could we but do it overf' As this is impossible, we must
try again. We will have that opportunity in another school, the school of life, and hope we shall all

Some of my friends and I were having a rather good time in. the assembly room, shortly before
Christmas vacation. It was hard for me to keep quiet and to keep from telling my friends what I
expected to do during vacation.
I was talking across the room to one of my numerous friends, and asking her what we were go--
ing to do that evening. Our principal, who was habitually an even-tempered man, tapped the desk
with a pencil, which I knew meant "Be quietf, I took heed, but it only lasted a few minutes. I
turned around to talk to another friend and as he had his eye on me, he used his old signal for be-
ing quiet again.
As my friend hadnit understood me, I turned right around and asked her again. This being the
third time, he lost his patience and jumped down from the platform like lightning. I didn,t know
what was going to happen, but he headed for my seat.
W'hen I noticed him coming my way, I grabbed a book and began studying. I yelled to my
pal that he was heading for me.
But before I knew where I was at, he was at my seat and had a rather strong hold of my
ear. "Young lady, come with me!" The 'birds or something whispered, and I did come.

Oh, lads, but there was sure something doing on the evening of November the twenty-seventh!
There wasn't a single Junior that didnit know as sure as death that the Junior send-off was going to
be the best ever staged on that beloved, revered, old auditorium stage. And no wonder! The way
those patriotic Juniors practiced and studied, and then practiced some more, was enough to make Noah
think that the world was not going to the bad afler all. Every evening for about two months, lights
were seen up in the assembly room till the wee sma' hours fexaggeration for effect, and the rest of us
who were not called upon to work our gray matter, worried ourselves almost sick for fear that the
school board would take all our proceeds for payment of the electric light bill.
However, our fears were happily unnecessary, for Tuesday evening came and the atmosphere
was still clear. Ushers were kept busy finding seats for the old, infirm, and the miscellaneous, and
it was early ascertained that there would be no vacant seats to disconcert the talented actors and iesses.
And talk about excitement! Not only Juniors, but the entire congregation buzzed like a bee-hive.
You see, they knew they were now to see the real thing and, believe me, they were not disappointed.
First came the piano solo by Bessie Oswald, and if anyone can tickle the ivories, Bessie can!
She had Beethoven skinned a mile, and everyone in the audience knew it, too. She played an encore.
and if the audience hadn't been interrupted by the entrance of the next number, sheid probably be
The 'anextu was a Swedish dance, and, Boy! you'd think that the natives of that fair but far
country were suddenly before us themselves. Talk about grace! Irene Castle was as a candle be-
side the sun fthe Juniors, of course, being the sunl.
Then came a vocal solo by Grace Rinke. Children, words could not describe the way she raised
Cain around the hearts of the audience. It was great! ,Twas said afterwards that the hearts she
won that evening were greater in number than those broken by Cleopatra.
And then the chalk talk by Carl Pfaender-everyone knows that Carl would miss his calling
if he does not become an artist. The drawings of President Wilsron that he drew, impersonated that
venerable gentleman to a HT."
And the japanese dances! I-lere again I pause for words to describe it, but in vain-they are
not forthcoming. The different lights not only brought the hidden points out, but they emphasized
those natural graces that everyone knew were present.
Then-oh, happy, long-longed for hour!-came the play. The actors were not to be beaten.
You may talk about your Charley Chaplins-Douglas Garrow had him beaten by a mileg and your
May Allisons-vshe couldnit hold a candle beside Anne Mueller-and Margaret Esser, Julia Meyer,
Theodore Halverson, and Violette Steinmetz were surely the class' choice talent.
The patriotic number closed the program. Not a Junior was absent. And did we sing?
Josephat! 'Twas said that the birds in the Philippines grew green with jealousy. Then the Star
Spangled Banner was sung by the audience and Elsie Kaiser made a ravishing Statue of Liberty.
It is unnecessary to add that the debt the Junior class owes Miss Kester for her kind and thor-
ough coaching is great. It will never be considered by them as paid.
And now if the present Sophomore class "goes over the top" next year the way we did this
year-well, we know that they can't beat ours, but we sincerely hope that they have as complete
a success. -Another junior.

Everystudent walked slowly down the hall murmuring to himself, 'gDear me, I must try and

he was introduced to Miss Zero, a very disagreeable young woman. Everystudent hated the very
sight of her.
After class was dismissed 'he hurried to his next class, which was English. Here another mem-
ber of the Teacher family was at the head of the class. He was very nervous for fear Miss Zero
would come in, but she dfid not put in an appearance. Toward the close of the period, Miss
Teacher introduced him to Miss B. She was not as bad as Miss Zero, but she was not a companion
one could be proud of. At the end of the period he hurried to Assembly. He hoped Miss Ninety
would be there, but he was doomed to disappointment, but someone introduced Everystudent to Miss
Bad Conduct. She was the boldest girl he had ever met, and he left her as soon as he could.
After Assembly he wended his way to his Ancient History class. At the beginning of the class,
who should come in and sit down right beside Everystudent, but the despised Miss Zero. Every-
student sighed. That detestable girl again. What could he do to rid himself of her? Ah! he
had an idea. He would consult Ambition after class. So when class was dismissed he interviewed
Ambition. This is the advice he received. "If you donit want to have anything to do with Miss
Zero or Miss B, just study your lessons and recite often. Then they'll have nothing to do with you,
as they hate ambitious people. ln regard to Miss Bad Conduct, oh! she's easily gotten rid of. Be-
have in Assembly and classes and she won't so much as look at you. Once you have rid yourself
offtlrese undesirable girls,"'Miss Ninety Willdoe ready to make your acquaintancef' f ' 'W ' '
So Everystudent took his advice. He met Miss Ninety in every class and found her a very
pleasant young lady, indeed, but, as Ambition had said, she was rather hard to get acquainted with.

ul-le gives generously who wraps his gift in sacrificew-whether of time, money, or thought.
No character is ultimately tested until it has suffered."
ln a little town in the eastern part of the United States, a Red Cross campaign had been or-
Every member of the -town was requested to contribute something. The contributions were to
be sent to the American soldiers in the trenches and to the sufferers in Belgium and France. The
leader of the campaign excited interest by promising to report whose gift was the best and most self-
sacrificing. The contributions were varied. Many strange articles of wearing apparel found their
way into the Red Cross headquarters. The gifts were money, clothing, and other necessities and
The wealthiest resident of the town gave five thousand dollars without hesitation and thought
nothing of it, except that his gift would surely be considered the best, because he loved his money.
At one end of the town, in a poor little shack lived the poorest family of the town. There
were eight small children in the family and it took all the money the father and the eldest child, a
boy of fourteen, could earn to pay the expenses of the family.
One of the children had been hurt in an automobile accident two years before, and as a result
was unable to walk. The little invalid had been looking forward for two long years to the time when
the family would have enough money saved to permit the expense of an operation to restore the boy's
Qlfff ,. EE ,. H5 Q
The little life seemed to be gradually dwindling away. The parents feared that the boy would
not live until they should have money enough to restore his health. They still lacked quite a sum
but they refused to borrow.
When the boy heard of the Red Cross campaign, he begged his father to give the money to
them. He said, "I shall not live much longer. Give the money to the Red Cross to relieve the suffer-
ing of some other children." In vain the parents tried to turn him from those thoughts. At last,
when they realized how near death the boy was, they made the end happier by giving the money to
the Red Cross.
The lad's dying words were, "I hope that the money will help some other child more than it
would help me. I shall be happier in the land' where suffering is unknown." And so the boy died
to help some other children, when the operation probably would have saved his life.
Which gift was the best and most self-sacrificing? Your answer is the same as that of the
leader of the campaign. -Another Sophomore.

,lohn Roland had tried to do his bit by joining a branch of service in the army, but his exam-
iners told him that he was rejected on account of his poor hearing. Being of the right spirit and
right mind, Roland did his best, learning to knit, contributing to Red Cross, buying War Savings
Stamps and Liberty Loan Bonds, and other things. In the meantime he waited for an opportunity to do
a great deed for his country. It came at last.
One day as he entered the postoffice, he saw two strangers conversing eagerly in low tones.
Roland passed them, went to his box, and got his mail. He sat down on one of the benches and
began to read a letter. Up to this time the strangers had not interested him. As he read, he thought
he heard the strangers say something about bombs. He forgot about his letter and listened to the
strangers. "Aeroplane" was another common word in their talk. Roland walked out of the post-
office and into a hardware store where he bought a pistol and some cartridges. He then went back to
the postoffice and slunk about till the two strangers came out. He followed them to a restaurant,
where they ate supper. Roland also went in and ordered a meal.
As soon as it was dark the two men went out, Roland sneaking after them. He followed them
till they came to a prairie screened by a thick wood. Roland hid behind a tree and watched the
proceedings. The two strangers pushed an aeroplane out into the open and started the engine,
which made a roaring, but muffled sound. The men were about to be off, when Roland, pistol in
hand, rushed out from behind the tree. His foot struck a rock and he fell headlong to the ground,
the pistol exploding as he fell.
When he regained consciousness, about an hour later, he found himself tied to a tree. He
worked the rope loose and made his way into the town. To his surprise he saw the streets covered
with sheets of white paper.
Going to one of the crowds of people he saw that they were looking at the remains of a
bomb, one which he had seen on the aeroplane. Surprised and puzzled, he picked up one of the
sheets of paper and read, 'LBuy Fords." --A Freshman.

Every day just when we see that night begins to rise over the horizon of the ocean, my mother
and I climb the long steps of the light house to the top, where we light the lamp and set it swinging.
A sunset on the ocean is the most gorgeous sight that I have ever seen. Away for miles
stretches water. Dull blue near the base of the tower and as my eyes travel farther away, I see
that the color of the water and sky makes it hard to distinguish between the two, but for the curv-
ing line that runs through the very center of the radiance.
In the center of the sky, the clouds are like little red wavelets with white on the edges that
looks like foam.
Back of these I can see the blue sky, and the colors "Red, White and Blue" shine all over
the world as they shall-forever. -Another Freshman.

The power to read-the ability to interpret the written thoughts
of wonder-minds-this is the greatest of all talents. It is the posses-
sion of many of our New Ulm High School girls.
This year, twenty-seven entered the contest in declamation. Be-
cause of the pressure of other duties, some of these dropped out, but
when the preliminary contests occurred, one for each class, there were
According to custom, two representatives were chosen from each
class to appear in the Siegel contest. The decision of the judges in that
contest was as follows:
1 Thelma Rinke, Sophomore, first place
Irene Stamm, Senior, second place
Louise Fritsche, Senior, and Julia Meyer, Junior, third place
Thelma Rinke read The Littlest Rebel at the sub-division contest
in Sleepy Eye, and again won first place. Then came the district con-
test at Winthrop, with our Thelma once more victorious, and now eligible
for the state contest.
For three years New Ulm has had representatives in the state con-
test. For the past two years we have held the district championship in
both oratory and declamation. It is our hope that this success may con-
tinue and grow greater every year.
he Qglraturiral Gluntests
A clean sweep in sub-district and district and second honors in
the state contest in oratory, is the record of N. U. H. S. this year.
Ten high schools of Minnesota became the champions of their respective
districts through a series of elimination contests and entered the state
contest on an equal basis. These ten schools, of which N. U. H. S.
was one, thus represented every high school of the commonwealth of
Minnesota. N. U. H. S., therefore, standing not merely second of J. H. Siegel
ten state high schools in oratory, but second of each and every high
school in the state, may justly be proud of her record.
When the first call for orators for the Siegel Trophy Contest was
made, it was known that the winner would represent the N. U. H. S.
in the sub-district contest at Sleepy Eye. Further, no one dared hope
or predict. But in each class the response of the rank and hle orators
was most liberal. The enthusiasm and the pep was apparentg the quality
of the oratory being mostly quantity at first, fairly bulged the walls of the
auditorium. The keen rivalry of the classes became intense during the
final contest for honors. When the winner of the local contest was an-
nounced, every loyal New Ulmite staked his faith and hope in him to
the limit, but as Victor returned from each successive contest he had sur-
prised all the faith and hope, and was in no need of anyone's charity.
Shall this year's record be an inspiration for next year and the
vears to come? Indeed, if N. U. H. S. is to maintain such enviable
records the students must respond with double the numbers, and triple
vide, Rein, the enthusiasm of the past.
4 skating Season
The arrangement of the de-
bates this year brought New
Ulm in contact once more with
her old forensic rival, Redwood
Falls. The triangular debate be-
tween Canby, Redwood Falls
and New Ulm proved very in-
teresting and very successful-
except that Redwood walloped
The try-outs were held on De-
cember l0th and six of the eleven
contestants were chosen to rep-
resent the school on the platform.
The question was a very interest-
ing and practical one. It was:
'sResolved, that schedules of
minimum wages for unskilled la-
borers should be established by
the several states. Constitution-
ality grantedf, The affirmative
team journeyed to Redwood
Falls to meet their negative, while
our negative battled Canby on the
From tl'e beginning the teams were handicapped by lack of material. All material had to
be borrowed, bought, or rented, as the school library had nothing to offer. Nevertheless, the six
chosen Harguersu went to work with a will, and Mr. I-lenry's room rang with practice debates for five
or six weeks before the great struggle. Typewritten speeches were prepared three weeks ahead of
the debate, and rebuttal was arranged as carefully as the limited stock of material would allow.
Finally, on February l5th, the "show-down" came. The affirmative team, composed of Nor-
man Johnson, Armin Sattler and Victor Reim, met a team of three girls at Redwood Falls. Subse-
quently it was discovered that these same three young ladies had debated together last year against
Wells. ln view of this fact, the showing of the New Ulm contingent was very creditable, indeed,
neither Johnson nor Sattler had had previous debating experience, and although Victor did nobly, the
handicap of experience was too great to be overcome.
The outcome of the Canby debate was more encouraging, however, for a 2-l decision over the
visitors from the West, gave New Ulm second place in the triangular league. The negative team
also had only one experienced speaker. Anne Wager, as leader, showed a clear knowledge of the
case, and her speech was interesting and forceful. Cyrus Frederickson and Violette Steinmetz, for
new debaters, showed a great deal of promise, and should by next year develop into strong speakers.
The debating season was, on the whole, a success. From the standpoint of benefits secured, the
decision is the last thing to be thought of. The general benefits accruing to the individuals and the
schools out rank by far the thrill which goes with a victory. The members of this year's teams
worked hard and deserve credit for their efforts to uphold the good name of their school.
It is hoped that the proposed public speaking courses which may be offered next year will
stimulate the general interest in debating. A whole year's training in platform work, an early start
on the question to be discussed, and a large squad trying for places on the teams should give debat-
ing a boost next year which will place New Ulm well among the leaders in debating circles. And,
remember, ye under classmen, some day in the dim, distant future-you or your children or your
grandchildren must win a debate from Redwood Falls.

The two years of the Graphos' existence, already make it seem a part of school, and although
it causes the students some extra work and responsibility, it gives all an opportunity of displaying and
improving their literary abilities, if only through the Craphos Box.
At the close of last year, Norman Johnson was chosen Editor and Victor Reim, Associate
Editor for the coming year. They decided on the following staff: Margaret Esser, Girls, Athletic
Editorg Bert Frederickson and Joseph Welter, Athletic Editorsg Louise Fritsche and Armin Sattler,
Feature Editors, John Lippman, Business Manager, Theodore Crone, Carl Pfaender, and Violette
Steinmetz, Assistant Business Managers, Roman Penkert, Exchange Editor. News Editors: Flo-
rence Collins, Laurie Mayer, Edmund Lebert, Anne Wager, Eleanor Biebl and Mildred Meyer.
Mr. Henry faithfully fulfilled the duties of Faculty Advisor.
In the middle of the year the staff was somewhat changed, in order to give the next year's
Seniors a chance of becoming acquainted with the work of Editor. Carl Pfaender was chosen Edi-
tor-in-Chief and Margaret Esser, Associate Editor. Florence Collins was made Girls' Athletic Editor
and upon John Lippman's resignation as Business Manager, Edmund Lebert was chosen in 'his place.
The Graphos has become very popular, and its publication twice a month has always been
looked forward to by the entire student body. It is not only of temporary interest, but many also
are saving the copies to refer to in later years, when they wish to call to mind the events of a happy
high school career.

"She Stoops to Conquer," written by Oliver Goldsmith, is one of the few plays which never
grows old. Its rollicking humor, its clever characterization, its gentle satire, and withal its sound
moral foundation, make it just as interesting to modern audiences as to those of an earlier date.
Social whims' and shams are much the same today as in Goldsmithis time, and people appreciate
the ludicrous elements in the play, because they strike home to the same weaknesses in our own day.
The various parts in the play were remarkably well taken by members of the Senior class. Each
actor showed a careful study of his part, and the effects of earnest, well-directed practice. Irene
Stamm as Kate Hardcastle won her audience fand her lover-to-bel, the bashful Mr. Marlow, as
well, from her first appearance. Her clever management of that bashful youth at their first meet-
ing was only eclipsed by the charming manner in which she, in the totally different character of the
bar maid of the supposed inn, captivated completely the said Mr. Marlow. From beginning to end
her vivacity and wit were so real as to seem entirely natural.
The part of Mr. Marlow, taken by Victor Reim, was equally well done. Victor played the
swaggering gallant to perfection, banging mine host about with true gentlemanly bravado. In his
first meeting with Miss Hardcastle, however, his bravery forsook him entirely, and a more confused,
abjectly bashful young man could not have been imagined. His consternation at being deserted by the
more loquacious Mr. Hastings was pitiful in the extreme. In both of these characters, as well as in
the denouement at the end of the play, Victor showed a complete mastery of his part, and a fine
appreciation of its dramatic possibilities. There was no doubt at the end of the play that Mr.
Hardcastle had chosen a worthy husband for the vivacious Kate.
The part of Squire Hardcastle was taken by Norman Johnson in inimitable style. The kindly.
though often ludicrous, old gentleman, the outraged host, the loving father, the jolly eavesdropper-
all these Norman found time to impersonate, vividly during the course of the five acts. His make-up
and voice added greatly to the general effect.
Armin Sattler made a very clever Tony Lumpkin. His mischievous wit and tricks kept the play
on the move from beginning to end. His scenes in which he pretended to make love to his cousin,
Constance, to please his mother, were among the cleverest in the play. His acting was at all times
entirely in keeping with the spirit of the part, and the audience agreed that in his own words, "Tony
Lumpkin was not so much of a fool after all." His clever management of the stage coach episode
paved the way for a complete settlement of the play-to his liking.
A sub-plot which furnished a good deal of interest dealt with the mistakes, misfortunes, and final
happiness of another pair of lovers, Constance Neville, Tonyis cousin, and Mr. Hastings, the faith-
ful attendant of the bashful Mr. Marlow. The troubles of this devoted couple were so real
that only their happy conclusion permitted the audience a smile. The part of Constance was very
well taken by Elizabeth Russell, while Theodore Crone made a very gallant Mr. Hastings. Each
displayed several very clever bits of acting.
Edmund Lebert as Sir Charles Marlow made a very dignified figure save in the one scene
when he and Squire Hardcastle, each forgetting fis age and position, hid Polonius-like behind the
screen. The sight of the two gray heads bobbing up and down from behind the screem like corks
on the bounding deep, was one of the hits of the play. Emily C-roebner as Mrs. Hardcastle found
life hard to endure, indeed. Her mischievous son, her sentimental niece, her household turned into
an inn, and finally her precious dignity torn to shreds by a wild ride over hill and dale-these she
bore with remarkable fortitude, lapsing into tears on an average of only once or twice each scene.
Emily played a difficult part well, and had the sympathies of most of the mothers in the audience.
The minor characters of ale-house lads, would-be butlers, etc., found worthy actors in several
other members of the Senior class. John Woebke as Diggory and Helen Berg as Dolly. the maid.
deserve special mention for clever handling of their parts. That the entire play was a tremendous
success is the opinion of all who saw it. Financially, also, the efforts of the class were bountifully
rewarded, for a packed house greeted the rising curtain.
Too much credit can not be given to Miss Kester for her admirable coaching. A marked tal-
ent along dramatic lines, and the hard and earnest work which she always gives, make Miss Kester's
productions certain of success. The play also owes much to Miss Turner and the High School
Orchestra for the finish which musical numbers always add to a program of this nature.

One of the big events of the
school year was the Qperetta given
by the C-lee Clubs under the direc-
torate of Miss Peterson, Miss Kester
and Miss Turner. It was an oper-
etta in the true sense of the word,
and the first time anything of its kind
has been tried by the school. ln
fact, very few schools can even con-
sider making such an attempt. More-
over, the affair was a tremendously
successful venture. The people of
the city turned out in considerable
numbers, and everyone pronounced
it a success in enthusiastic grammar.
Wm rg l As well as a successful entertain-
ment, it was a success financially,
and gave added incentive to non-students to support future student enterprises.
The Operetta, Bulbul, takes up the affairs of a petty monarch and his court. The plot lends
itself to a successicn of humorous situations, and is interspersed at very frequent intervals with
almost uproariously funny incidents. The monarch, a part ably handled by that grave Senior, Armin
Sattler, issues a proclamation that on a certain day, any lady of his court may ask anyone she desires
to marry her and the gentleman, fortunate fur the ccntraryj must accept the proposal unconditionally.
The king's daughter, princess Bulbul, whose part no one could have taken with more individuality
than Grace Rinke, is, much to her distress, destined to marry a neighboring prince. She does not
know the prince, and shortly before the time for her marriage falls in love with an adventurer, Lud-
wig l-lofmeister. She takes advantage of her fatheris proclamation and asks the unknown adven-
turer to be her husband. He agrees, but to the delight of the court, reveals himself as the prince.
The brightness is taken out of the day for the king, however, for the court chaperon, inimitably char-
acterized by l-lelen Berg, asks to be the queen. l-le must stand by his decree, so he consents to
arrangements. A subplot, consisting of the love affair of one of the prince's followers, Victor Reim,
and a maiden of the court, Norma Klause, develops into another marriage so that the king ade-
quately describes the situation as X
"mush," Father King's temper im-
proves by the time of the wedding,
and three couples are happily mar-
ried 'mfuesday at noon.',
There was an abundance of fine
choruses in which about sixty people
participated. The orchestra ac-
companied all the singing throughout
the production, which certainly gave
added zest to the entire performance!
Such ventures as these are to be dn-
couraged and we hopefully look for-
ward to other and better attempts in Q
the years to come. ' 3

A high school orchestra is one of the most important organizations connected with school work.
It not only adds greatly to the pleasure of the members, but it delights thcse that have the oppor-
tunity to hear it. New Ulm High School has been fortunate in having a very good orchestra this
year. The orchestra appeared on many different occasions, the junior entertainment, the Operetta,
and Senior Class play being the most
important occasions. On every
occasion it was highly appreciated,
judging from the applause. The
success of the orchestra was due to
the never ceasing efforts of the lead-
er, Miss Turner. The members
showed very good interest and co-
operated with her throughout the
The other faculty members, who

time, not very long ago, when neither of these existed. Now, everybody considers them one of the
Year by year the Girls' Clee Club has gained in quality and quantity until, at the present time,
the club consists of forty-one members.
Miss Pederson, as directress, has done a great deal to further the abilities of the members, and
we all appreciate the interest she has shown in her work.
Although the C-lee Club has not had as many occasions to show its accomplishments this year,
as last year, the operetta was enough of an occasion to let the public see what its merits are.
It has always been the custom of the Club to elect officers yearly. This year the following
officers were chosen: Irene Stamm, President, Helen Berg, Secretary and Treasurerg Freda Behnl-te,
Librarian, and Gladys Grussenclorf, Accompanist.

One of the finest diversions from the grinding, monotonous, daily routine of school life is glee
club work. The term work is here not wrongly used for it is also work in a sense, but it is very
different from that conglomeration of duties which we usually term work. Of the latter kind of work
one gets just a wee bit tired once in a ,great while, but the kind of work performed at a meeting
of the boisterous vehicles through which the height of art finds expression, combines the latter kind of
work in so minus a quantity with joy and pleasure, that a vacancy in the ranks is a truly enticing
bait for any embryo Caruso or Williams.
The Boys' Glee Club, under the direction of Miss Pederson, has helped to make this world just
a bit better place to live in, on several different occasions. It prides itself principally, however. upon
the part it took in the Opcrelta. We, the departing members, sincerely hope the good work may

P ar giattings Societies
In answer to the call to buy War Savings Stamps, the students of the N. U. I-l. S. again dis-
played their willingness to do their bit, by organizing War Savings Societies.
Each class organized a society, and elected a president and secretary. Competition began at
once, and every Tuesday, the day chosen as Wai' Stamp Day, saw the different societies trying to
buy the most stamps.
The Freshman society had a good start, for one of its members, Douglas Beecher, had already
bought one hundred dollars worth of stamps. Not considering this, the different societies are almost
all tied, having about one thousand dollars worth together.

This year's activities show that the girls are not only interested in literary work, but also in the
more practical art of baking bread.
Early this spring the Bread Baking Society was organized. Alice Pfeiffer was chosen Presi-
dent and Gertrude Winkelmann, Secretary. 'A tax of thirty-five cents was levied on each member,
to pay for the ffour used.
Each member of the society was required to bake eight loaves of different kinds of war bread
before she was ready for the final contest, which was held in the local Domestic Science Rooms.
The result of the contest was almost the same as that of last year, Alice Pfeiffer again win-
ning first place. The second place was awarded to Lola Meyer, and third place to Mildred Meyer.
Surgical Pressing Clllztssezs
Under the instruction of Mrs. Morron of the Red Cross headquarters in Minneapolis, twelve
of the high school boys, several teachers, and other women, were taught to make surgical dressings
There was an afternoon and evening class, and each class was required to work four times a
week for two weeks. At the end of this time an examination was given, and all those passing it
were given charge of classes of other high-school students. Three afternoons and evenings were de-
voted to this work each week.
The money required for the necessary materials was received from the Junior Red Cross So-
ciety, and from the proceeds of a basketball game, given to raise funds for this purpose.

There is no person, corporation, or company that does not wish to attain success when attempt-
ing a proposition. The people of the United States wish at the present time to conclude this most
dreadful war successfully. War is not only accompanied by slaughter and the mobilizing of troops,
but the caring for the troops and the caring for the wounded. If we can not go on the battlefield
and help our country, we can fight hard behind the lines. Since it takes co-operation and organization
to attain success, the school decided to do war work and contribute their share to the winning of the
war. The spirit of the work and the success attained was far beyond expectations.
The first project along the line of war Work was the library fund. Almost immediately the
two literary societies took up the work. The boys canvassed the town for funds and a collection was
taken in school, all told, one hundred and seventy-seven dollars were collected. Miss Juni, the local
Librarian, was congratulated by the state librarian on our grand success in getting funds.
Not long after this the second Liberty Loan was floated by the United States. It was brought
up before the school whether or not they should buy a bond. NVith short deliberation the school de-
cided unanimously to buy a fifty-dollar bond, each class to contribute one-fourth of the amount neces-

After the series of events that made the Junior class quite famous, the crowning moment that
topped off the year, came when they led the Seniors of 'I7 into the gymnasium on the afternoon
of May l2. The Juniors had been making preparations for over a week for this, their reception, to
the departing Seniors, and the gasps and cries of surprise and wonderment that escaped that august
body were proof of the Juniors' decorative ability.
The gym was literally covered with lavender and white ribbons, running from the center of the
ceiling to the walls in graceful curves. At opposite corners- were beautifully decorated ibooths for
serving frappe. The walls were covered with flags, as were the hall and entrance to the gym. The
tables were arranged like a U, and gave ample evidence of the waiting banquet.
From the middle of the ceiling was hanging a dainty umbrella from which hung red, white and
blue ribbons. These the boys were told to draw in order to choose partners. A grand rush and the
ribbons were gone. Another grand rush and all had their partners. Led by the faculty and the
school 'board the company found seats. A delicious and sufficient banquet was served by the Sopho-
more girlsg knives and forks kept time to the music of the orchestra. After all victuals had disap-
peared, Mr. Hess, as toastmaster, called for toasts from the presidents of the classes, and members of
the school board and faculty. The toasts were short but full of pep, the perfect hnish for a perfect
The Hoor was then cleared for action. The orchestra struck up a lively tune, and in less than
a minute, students, faculty and school board were stepping on each other's toes. From the first one-
step to the last waltz seemed a dream, such dancing and such joy. As the long hand of the clock
moved to twelve the dancers were moving to the sad strains of ul-lome, Sweet Homef' Though im-
mensely happy to realize that the social event of the year had been a huge success and had eclipsed
all former efforts, the Juniors bade their guests a sorrowful good-night. There were none who were
ready to go, and the fact was emphatically emphasized by all, including the board members. So did
the Juniors of 'I 7 say farewell to the older members of the school, whose places they must fill the

On entering the building the guests were greeted by a patriotic display of American flags. They
then passed under a red, white, and blue arch into the N. U. H. S. Ice Palace-nee, gym.
The ceiling and the upper portion of the walls were a bower of evergreen, from which were
suspended iridescent icicles. Colored lights- poured their soft glow through the leafy roof, and each
ray was caught up and reflected by the icicles until the room was like a spectrum. The lower por-
tion of the walls represented large snow banks. From a latticed bower at the foot of the spiral stair-
way issued the sweet strains of the orchestra.
Then the guests sat down at three large banquet tables, which were set and decorated in the re-
spective class colors of green and white, and red and white. A number of Sophomores, boys and
Mr. Hess acted as toastmaster, and after an hour of "short, but sweet" talks, the tables were
cleared away and the Palace became a fairyland of blithe and happy couples.
In opposite corners of the Palace, refreshing frappe was served to the merry-makers by two
Freshmen boys and girls, who were clad in patriotic costumes.
Those who preferred other entertainments la that of dancing, were escorted to the mechanical
drawing room, which had emerged from its Chrysalis and become, under the skillful hands of the dec-
orating committee, a cozy den. The predominating color note here was the official combination of Lav-
ender and White. ' ' A
At the dreaded hour, half-past eleven, all departed for their homes, voting the Juniors some
The desire of the last year's Senior girls fthe charter members of the D. O. TJ was that the
D. 0. T. Literary Society be successfully kept up, so as to become a credit to the school. The
members thus have tried their best to fulfill this desire, and feel that they have been successful.
All the members have busied themselves with Red Cross work ever since last summer, and have
also accomplished much by knitting at the meetings. Together with the P. L. S., they also helped
Miss Juni in collecting money for the Library Fund.
The meetings all year have been very interesting, as well as instructive. The Poets of the
War and the Ancient Theatres were taken up as series articles. Many musical numbers and read-
ings of different kinds were given, which proved of great interest to the members. "Peppy" and
spirited parliamentary drill sessions were also indulged in. '
The society did not drink as deeply of the cup of "social whirl" this year as last, but spreads
given for visiting basketball teams showed that if the occasion required it, they could still live up to
their last year's reputation.
An open meeting was given for all the girls in High School, so as to show the work being done
by the society. It was very successful in every respect.
There are now thirty-nine active members in the society. Because of so large a number, Sopho-
mores were not admitted this year. Katharine Weiser, Margaret Esser, and Elizabeth Russell have
successfully performed the duties of President of the society during the year.
All in all, the society feels that it has done its best throughout the year, and hopes that the
years to come may see great successes wrought by the Daughters of Thespis.
One of the potent forces in the betterment and uplift of high school life, physical, mental, and
moral, is the Protean Society. For the last three years it has held sway over the literary activities of
the school. When the old-time Thalian and Athena societies, of which the Seniors are now the only
remnants, failed, the guiding genius of the school, Mr. Hutson, instilled so much literary enthusiasm
into the masculinity of the upper classes, that a society with a real, living purpose was formed, called
the Protean Literary Society.
Of course, the first ten members were the cream of the literary ability the school could offer.
They were the speakers, orators, declaimers and debaters. Their work under Mr. I-lutson's leader-
ship was so satisfactory, so interesting, so full of enthusiastic life, that the ranks of the Proteans
soon swelled to thirty or more members.
This year the Proteans have grown into a body whose movements are relied on as representative
of the school. In all things, Proteans took the lead. All winners of oratory, all male members of
debate squads, practically all athletes and, in general, all those of the high school who had any pep
in them, were Proteans.
During the year the Proteans have presented many interesting programs and accomplished con-
siderable work, but the feature demonstration was a mock trial. This was something really worth
while. Practically all of the members took part and all received a practical education. Reim, the
attorney for the defense, by eloquent oratory, managed to clear his client, Eibner, of any implication
in crime, in spite of the fact that one of the ablest lawyers of the state, John Woebke, carried on
the prosecution. The work done in this trial proved that students were still willing to work and plug,
not only for what was necessary, but also for their own best interests.
Many other things have the Proteans done. It is sincerely hoped that the Proteans will
continue with their work of mental and moral development, keeping in mind the fact that their actions
will make or break the society, that they must live up to its standards in order to keep it from
dying: that they must show the same and greater enthusiasm to keep it alive and going, and at the
same time, hold its position of influence in forceful modeling of character.

It is customary to round up every annual with a roast or humorous section. So if we have
said anything to hurt your feelings, don,t establish a precedent by telling us that you enjoyed the jake,
but honor us by not speaking to us again.
' This section is not guaranteed to be funny. In fact, we spent the saddest moments of our lives
trying to make it funny. We couldn't roast everyone. We could only record the events that came
to our particular notice. We realize that this section has a great many faults, so remember, if you
criticize it, you are not pulling anything original.
To you narrow-minded victim, who will laugh when the other fellow is mentioned and will
gnash your teeth when your own name is mentioned, we reverently dedicate this trash.

. l . 4 . , Glrnquet ,Season
The past season can justly be
called a successful one, if Winning
first the district, then the state, and
then wresting of the State Inter-
Collegiate Championship from the
winners of that class, may be termed
factors in the makings of a successful
season. The team started the season
in a style that immediately heralded
success. Many men reported, and
animated scraps for positions on the
squad ensued. To prove that the
"thinning outu process was no small
task, let us quote the words of Coach
Miraculous Y. Sipilldixz Upicking
the men for the squad was as tough
as white-washing a fence with ink
or pulling the hair from a bald man's
headf, Coach Spilldix was taken down with bunicns of the brain for a spell right after the season
opened. This may probably throw some light on the magnitude of the problematic task before him.
In the above paragraph we have described the events which carried us to the pinnacle of glory,
the state champions-hip, but as you see it fades awly in view of what happened when our gladiators
clashed with the college champs of the state. After the arrangement of the game, intense excitement
prevailed, the "powers that be" decided to have the game staged in the open air arena of the Insti-
tute for the Stout at Nlenomonie, Wisconsin. For the first time in the history of sports a high school
and a college team clashed. The team of the Bologna Junction School of Chiropodistry trotted out
onto the floor, perfect specimens of humanity.
Why tell the details of that epoch-making conflict? Why relate the numerous cases of fainting
in the crowd that were due simply to the fact that the lightning speed of the athletes created an
oversupply of ozone in the air.
In the first second of play, Berndt and Graff spilled the dope-pot of the clairvoyants, by hold-
ing the opposing charmers of the belted sphere down to a minus number of strokes and it might be
added that they never let up for a second. Shaoiro and Olsen, as right and left drivers, formed a
pair that often crumbled up the opponents, defense like a piece of dough succumbing to the kneading
of a strong arm. Dingler, as protector of the flanks, did some spectacular work.
Time and again it seemed that the bunch of chiropodists would break through, but with a
spirit and courage that was dauntless, our boys broke up one goal drive after another. In the last
second of play, Dingler, ably assisted and backed by the entire team, drove the only goal of the
game. The vast assembly, now thoroughly in sympathy with our fellows, gave a cheer that almost
raised the roof off the open air arena.
