Ph. B. ' Drake University, Post Graduate Work in Chicago University, University of Wisconsin MISS HALL, a former graduate of Newton High School, has been principal here for the past four years, and she has certainly filled her position creditably, from the standpoint of friends of the school and the entire student body. Each student knows her as his friend and adviser, from the timid freshman, just entering high school, whom she encourages and directs, to the mighty senior, who, by her counsel, is conducted along the path leading at last to graduation. She takes a personal interest in each student fro m the poorest to the best, and assists each with the same kindness and goodwill. Miss Hall ' s work in the school both as teacher and principal has been all that could be desired, and her ex- ample together with the co-operation of the students who enter the ranks each semester, must surely maintain for us the high ideals and the standard which our high school has always held.

His work has been of a very high character and under his careful super- vision the standard of work has been raised and the schools have increased in efficiency. Mr. Smith is a man of great tact and strong personality, and has a very comprehensive grasp of the problems of the present dav school. Teachers and pupils, alike, have the utmost confidence in his ability and all hope that he may remain at the head of the Newton schools for some time to come. SUPERINTENDENT ' S OFFICE MISS LAURA N.

PRICE, ANYTHING ' Yd EDITORS " -BONEHEADS SCOVILLE, W ILSCN AND FAILCR GT UNIVJAiI fcLE News and Society Rumor has it that Miss Marvel Miller has re- signed her position as principal of our school, in order that she may marry the man of her choice. We rejoice with Miss Miller in this condescension, but we always supposed that school-teachers were school-teachers. Miss Katherine Failor and Miss Gladys Neel have recently accepted a position upon the vaudeA ' ille stage. They travel under the name of " The Hopping Hoodoo ' s " and are making a great hit with their fantastic features. We remember these two girls as modest, unassum- ing young ladies and are somewhat surprised at their new venture. Mr. Robert Woodrow has recently announced his intention of entering the race for president of the scho ol board. While there is much com- petition, we are sure his popularity in educa- tional circles will insure his ultimate success and we are confident that affairs will be man- aged correctly under his able surveillance. Madamoiselle Pyrle La Matere has recently established an Information Bureau in New York. Madamoiselle is a very charming young woman who is versed along every line of thought from making good jokes to giving counsel to disappointed lovers. People are traveling hundreds of miles to obtain her ad- vice. She will be remembered as Miss Pearl jVlateer, of this city. Miss Jessie Sellman has lately joined the Red Cross Society and has gone to Europe to help care for the wounded soldiers. She con- siders this a very romantic occupation and no doubt her tender sympathy for man (kind) (?) will prove a valuable asset to her in her work. Miss Jennie Scoville, whose grades will long be remembered in Newton High, is receiving fame all over the world as an artist and poet- ess of great ability. The following sample of her work speaks for itself: ODE TO SPRING The spring, the spring, the beautiful spring. Oh, how the pretty birds do sing. We ' ll never know what joy you bring; The spring, the spring, the beautiful spring. ership of the " I Won ' t Work " club of Newton High. This aggregation has already taken up Mr. Wormley ' s motto, which is: " What ' s the use? " When interviewed Mr. Wormley gave the reason for this step as being that the peo- ple failed to recognize him as the genius that he feels himself to be. Mr. Paul Montgomery, the celebrated novel- ist and text-book writer, has just edited a new work called " The Revised Course of Phys- ics. " This book tells all the author knows on the subject, but it gives no reason for the ex- istence of such phenomena. However, it has become very popular with the students. Miss Adra Rogers has lately given up her plans for teaching, and has departed with the Sabin for an extended visit to the Canary Isles to regain her health. The many friends of Miss Louise Morrison will be glad to know that she is slowly recov- ering from the effects of an overstocked brain and will soon be able to assume her usual du- ties. Mr. George Wormley has accepted the lead- The Chatterbox has recently changed propri- etors. Until a short time ago Maude French was sole editor of this jolly little paper, but now she is ably assisted by Helen Carpenter. They have adopted the suitable motto of " Chatter, Chatter as we go, " and are certainly living up to it in fine style. Dale Jackson and Ernest Jones, two promi- nent young men of the class of ' 15, recently won the famous debate on the lofty subject, " Resolved, That one cannot succeed in every undertaking by beginning at the bottom and going up. " Mr. Jackson distinguished himself for the exceedingly brilliant intellect which he displayed in his assertion that " a well digger could not begin at the bottom and go up " and therefore the debate was settled. On April first at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Miles occurred the marriage of their daughter. Miss Isobel, to Mr. Glen Kennedy. The bride is one of our most popular young ladies and her many friends join in wisihing her a happy wedded life. Miss Charity Brom, who during her High School career was well known for toer musical talents, has recently been engaged as a member of the " Spinster Sextette. " At present she is spending a few months in German musical schools, previous to the assumption of her du- ties. Mr. Howard Witmer, the celebrated young athlete of Newton High, won the tennis tour- nament at the last series of Olympic Games. The Wheeze is certainly glad to report the suc- cess of so popular a young man. Professor George Nelson and William Reese are again at work on a great physical problem. After the many startling discoveries which they have added to scientific knowledge, they are now endeavoring to discover whether or not the moon is made of green cheese. Many other workers along this line are watching with great interest the proceedings ol these two eminent physicists. Mr. Harry Greenlief has brought ardt against Harold Fleck, charging the latter with heart- breaking. Mr. Greenlief ' s attorney, Rudolph Van Wyngarden, is ably supporting the case and from present appearances the opposing at- torney, Dick Kennedy, has very few chances of success. Mr. Fleck will probably be sentenced to a short period in Coventry. Mr. Walter Callison has decided to spend the summer in the country, fearing that his lungs are unable to endure the smoke from the city factories. Miss Ruth Allfree expects to embark for Egypt in the near future. Her mission is to discover if possible, the secret of eternal youth. We do not know from which one of the mum- mies she expects to gain the information, but we wish her all possible success. On last Friday Miss Lela Stewart entertained a number of her friends at an afternoon lunch. The purpose of the affair was to announce her engagement to Mr. Albert Ohapman of the class of 1914. Both young people have a host of friends who wish them happiness. Another of our young ladies has made a brilliant record. Miss Martha Weeks recently won the shorthand contest held at Washington, D. C. As a result she is to enjoy a trip through western U. S. and the position of confidential secretary to the President. Miss Vera Mateer, who has gained eminence as a writer, has just finished a book which she has called, " The Life of Dewey. " Like all true Americans, she is a worshipper of heroes and Admiral (?) Dewey is her special favorite. The Misses Elise Wehrman and Alice Whitta- ker have opened a dressmaking establishment on German St., and are now ready to receive all customers. The latest models may be found in their up-to-date emporium and the managers guarantee satisfaction. Three promising young men, Hollis .Toy, Harry Greenlief and Clarence Griebeling, hav- ing become disgusted with the world in gen- eral, have organized a " Bachelors ' Club " all their own. Their motto is, " Ne Wedding Bell? for Me, " and their password, " Never Again. " A fine of two-bits is the penalty for indulging in a date. We are sorry to hear of this organiza- tion, for it seriously disappoints three of our young ladies. A rumor has reached our ear that Mr. Paul Montgomery is a deserter from the French arniy, which he joined a short time ago. Myrtle Ailing, the well-known suffragette leader, will hold a series of speeches in New- ton this summer. Her speeches are full of vim and vigor and we leel sure that she will do much toward the establishment of equal suf- frage in Iowa. Miriam Hindortt, who is at present conducting an information bureau in New York, is intend- ing to begin an extensive study of Greek poetry in the near future. .Just at present her inter- est is centered especially in Homer and his works. The class of 191.5 has quite a number of young ladies who could tell the men a few things about politics that would be surprising, to sav the least. They do not, however, display this capability but are biding their time until they can take their share of the burden, knowing the futility of advising their more for- tunate classmates. The many friends of Miss Blanche Leisman will no doubt be pleasantly surprised to hear that she has been elected as superintendent of the county schools of No-Man ' s-Land. We .eel sure that the schools will, under her able su- pervision, soon rank among the best in the wliole world. Miss NaoHii Kelly, the celebrated suffrag- ette, is holding a very strenuous campaign in the fields of Greenland. The latest dispatch received by her friends is to the effect that in the city of Midgeville her address was followed by a riot wthich was quelled at last by summon- ing the state militia. This speaks well for her oratorical ability and her speedy return to the V. S. is eagerly sought by other suffragettes of this country. Last Vill and Testaiiieiit of the Class of 1915. To the Freshmen we bequeath our noble ex- ample, that they may profit by it. To the .Juniors we bequeath all the rights and privileges enjoyed by us during the past year. To the Sophomores we bequeath our former hopes and ambitions. Paul Montgomery ' s drowsiness we pass on to Hugh Byers and we hope that Robert Pickens will enjoy the double share of nerve left him by Dale Jackson and George Wormley. To Zoa Skinner we bequeath Katherine Fail- or ' s wit and to Jean Sellman that shy blush now owned by Nina Wilcox. We advise Riley Chase to enjoy the popular- ity with the girls left him by Milton Burnell and last but not least, we lovingly bequeath to the faculty the memory of our exalted wis- dom. Signed— THE CLASS OF ' 15. At an informal party given at the home of Miss Vera Clymer. Mr. Frank Guthrie very cleverly announced that Miss Mildred Wilson, a charming young woman, and Mr. Abei-nusty Beanblossom a prosperous young farmer living in the neighborhood of Metz, are engaged — to sing at the Mission Church next Sunday even- ing.

BIOLOGICAL LABORATORY LTTERHBir S THAT the best you can show mel " asked au elderly lady after she had looked over every pi ece of gingham in the store. " Well, I don ' t want any of that stuff, " and she flounced out of the store while the clerk, a tall, slender young fel- low, called after her, " I ' m very sorry Mrs. Brown, was there — " It was no use for him to finish his sentence, the door closed behind her and slie Avas lost in the crowd. The clerk, Frank Ruskin, turned and glanced over the counter full of various ginghams. " Well, I might have knoAvn I couldn ' t find anything to suit her, " he thought and gave a sigh of relief as he began rolling up the goods and putting them in their places on the shelf. " Frank Ruskin, " came a voice from the cashier ' s desk, " telephone call. " " In just a second, " he answered as he placed the last piece of goods upon the shelf and took out his watch; " Nearly six o ' clock, I wonder Avho could want me at this time of day. " he spoke in a half whisper as he stepped upon the platfown. Taking up the receiver, he called, " Hello. " ' ' Hello ! Frank ? ' ' came in a low quivering tone. " Yes, what ' s the trouble! " " Your uncle George has been taken suddenly worse, the doctor says it is only a matter of a few minutes now. ' ' ' ' I ' li be there right away. Goodbye. ' ' In a short time Frank was at the door of his uncle ' s home. Slipping off his rubbers he quietly and quickly turned the door knob and stepped inside. There was no sound to be heard at first; then he listened; his ear caught the sound of his uncle ' s voice and then the stronger, clearer voices of his two cousins. Quietly going down the long hall he came to his uncle ' s bedroom. " That east three hundred twenty, " the feeble voice faltered and then began again, ' ' I want you to have — Fred, and the old home place is yours, Jim, " the voice again broke. Frank listened and his face grew white as he grasped the door knob, turned it and entered the room. ' ' Oh, it is Frank ; come at last. ' ' " Yes, uncle, I ' m very sorry I couldn ' t come sooner. " Tlie white face of his uncle sank deeper into the ]3illow and the weary eyes closed. Suddenly, with a desperate ef- fort, he raised his head and in a much stronger voice said, " That vase, give it to me. " Emeline Morrow, who had been his housekeeper for a numl)er of years, took the vase from its place on the shelf and placed it in the trembling hand. " Frank, " he said as he handed the silver vase to him, " I want you to keep this as a family keepsake. " George Ruskin ' s head sank liack into the pillow and the tired eyes closed forever. Late that evening as Frank Ruskin was going liome, he Avas thinking of the events of the early evening. " Why should Uncle George give all his property to Jim and Fred? They are no more relation to him than I am. We are all his nephews, and besides they both have good homes, " he thought. No reasoning seemed to adjust the supposed mistake. By til is time he had reached his own home. It v ' as only a small, Avhite cottage with a porch on the front. His father had just made the last payment on their little home before liis death. Both Frank and his mother had had to go to Avoi-k and iioav, altliongh he had finished ]uix] school and was pi-epai ' iug to attend college at the opening of the fall term, he needed help badl.y. Great preparations were going on in the little white cottage on f jn ' ing Street, the week before school l)egan. Mrs. Rnskin toolc down Frank ' s clothes from their accnstomed places and brnshed, cleaned and aired them. Every garment was gone over to make snre all Avas in readiness. Now and then a tear rolled down the salloAv cheek of Mrs. Ruskin as she carefnlly folded each garment and placed it in the old trunlc. Frank A " as her onl.v child and had been snch a help and comfort to her since her hnsband ' s death. It was the first time he had gone away from home to stay, bnt Mrs. Ens- kin had insisted npon his entering college as it was all she conld do for him now, even with him assisting her all he cniild. Th( following Monday morning the three cousins were seen in tlie little college toAvn of Salem, going toward the school, but Frank was not Avith the other two. He liad l)een overtaken l)y one of the professors and Avas Avalking Avith him. Fred looked liack over his shonlder. " Frard ' s got into good company already, " he said. " Company won ' t send him tliroiigh college tliongh. " re- marked Jim. " Let ' s Avalk a little slOAver, maybe Ave can Avalk Avith them. " Both slackened their pace and A ere soon overtalcen hx the irrofessor and Frank, Avho gave them a cheery " Good morning, " and passed by, chatting together only as two new friends can. " Did you ever? " exclaimed Jim. Fred ansAvered Avitli a hissing sound, but the tA o neAV friends either did not catch the sound or Avere too Avise to make it known. The first day passed quickly. Frank was delighted with his ncAV Avork. " It ' s going to be hard Avork but I think I can make it all right. I ' ll do my best anyAvay, " he thought as he entered his room, pulled off his coat and thrcAv it on a chair. ' ' Clink ! ' ' something sounded against the chair. " What ' s that? " he exclaimed. After searching his cOiit through, in the last pocket, he pulled out the silver vase his uncle had given him. " HoAv ' d you get here? " he said, gripping the vase in his hand. " Oh, I knoAV, you ' ve been there ever since uncle gave you to me. " AYith this, the vase Avas placed on the dresser. Frank Avent to the Avest Avindow and looked out. There Avas Bobbie, a poor, little, crippled boy, Avho Avas ahvays seen Avorking aiiioiig his fioAvers, Avhen the Aveather proved favorable. " Plucky little ]iiece, " he remarked, as he Avatched the bent figure working industriously. " Guess I ' ll go doAvn and see hiiu a feAV minutes, " and slipping on his coat, he made his Avay to the garden gate. " ilello, there. " The dark, curly head of the little felloAV raised slowly. " Hello, " he answered. " I thought I ' d come doAvn and help you a little while. I used to like to Aveed out mother s flowers at home. " " Help me! " The astonished gaze met that of the ncAv comer ' s. ' ' What ' s your name ? ' ' " Frank Ruskin. I ' ]u staying right over here, neighbor to you. " " Mine ' s Bobbie. " The Iavo liegan Avorking busily together, l)ut finally Bob- bie straightened his bent form and gave his ucav acquaint- ance a thonmgh looking over. ' ' Say, " lie began at last, " Are yon that new college gny that stays over here at Stover ' s? " " Yes, why! " " Well, I jist thonght if you was, I don ' t want no col- lege g uys in my garden, ' cause there was one helped uie once and he couldn ' t tell a weed from a flower and he pulled up some of my floAvers, so I ain ' t got no more faith in college folks. ' ' All right, if you don ' t want me to help you, I won ' t, but may I stay and watch you a little while I " " I don ' t care, but you know I ' m try in ' to earn enough money to get me some new clothes, so ' s I can go to church and i was afraid you might pull up some of my flowers. I didn ' t mean no harm though. " " Oh, you didn ' t offend me in the least, " said Frank laughing. In a short time Bobbie and Frank Avere good friends until cold weather came. Many of Frank ' s after school hours, when not otherwise employed, were spent among Bobbie ' s flowers, as a recreation before studying. The first year passed rather quietly as well as quickly for Frank, although he had made many friends among stu- dents and teachers alike. He had had his school worries, such as only students experience, but was well pleased with his year ' s work. The summer vacation was spent at home, clerking in the village store, but the following fall he returned to Salem and entered his Sophomore year. Fred and Jim, however, had not been aide to keep up with their classes for various reasons. For one thing, society had claimed most of their attention and thinking they had plenty of money, they did not need to work hard. The President had written to their parents and asked them not to send the boys another year, as it would be of no use. After receiving a letter from Jim and Fred ' s fathers containing every excuse imaginable, the President finally c uisented to their sending Jim back to school, b ut Fred was a hopeless case. Jim decided that he did not care to go any longer, so he too stayed at home. This year proved much more exciting for Frank than the previous one. He now belonged to the Debating Society, Glee clul) and a couple of other college clubs. His work was also heavier this year, but it still held its old time pleasure for him. Sometimes when finances A ere low, the burden of it all was almost greater than he could bear, but with a greater effort, these hard places were passed over and he could go on with rencAved courage and was aide to keep near the head of his class. Every uoav and then while studying in liis room, he would glance up and look at the silver vase. There Avas something about it noAV that seemed to bring comfort to him. It Ijrought back his childhood days as he Avould think of hav- ing played Avith it Avhen small. He had learned to prize it almost as highly as his uncle had done, but he kncAV not Avhy. One day, near the close of the second year, Frank ' s teacher came to him and told him that he had been chosen to take part on a debate betAveen Salem college and Lincoln col- lege. Lincoln Avas much larger than Salem, liut Salens had alAvays held her oavu and the boys kncAv that it depended upon them to do their best and help keep Salem ' s good name. That evening Frank seated himself near the Avest AAan- doAv of his room, thinking over the debate and noAV and then jotting doAvn a fcAV notes on a piece of paper, Avith a glance at Bobbie once in a Avhile to give him fresh courage. The darkness soon drove Bol)bie into the house and Frank still sat there lo ' oking tOAvard the garden in the darkness Avonder- ing hoAv he could afford to enter the debate Avhen he knew (if no place to get tlie money for expenses Avithout borrowing it. Mrs. Ruskin had beeu doing more lately than slie was able to do, in order to keep her son in school. Frank knew this and it worried him more than ever. Was there any- thing he could do! He thought for quite a while. No one had wanted help lately that he had heard of. " I do wish those Smiths would pay mother. I ' d make them pay it, if I had to take the law to them, " he spoke aloud as he brought his fist down hard, on his knee. " Well there ' s no use think- ing about it. I ' ll come out all right. I ' ve got to. " Frank straightened himself in the chair and turned his thoughts again to the debate. " Hello, " spoke Joe Fullerton, who stood in the door- way. Frank started at the sound of his voice. " Why, Hello, Joe; come on in; take a chair. I was just studying over that debate but I can ' t seem to make much headway. " " That ' s just Avhy I came over. I thought perhaps that between us we could work out something; at least get a start. ' ' " Let ' s begin right away while it ' s fresh in our minds. I borrowed this book from Professor White. We may be able to get something out of it. " Yes, and I brought this one I found among father ' s li- brary books, " said Joe. Both seated themselves on either side of the study table and began working busily. Joe glanced about the room, " Where did you get that vase, Frank, if it ' s any of my business? " asked Joe reaching for it. " It ' s a beauty anyway. " The story of the silver vase was repeated, as it oft had been before. " I ' d be mighty darn proud of it if I had it, " Joe said, examining it carefullv. " I ' d feel prouder of my uncle just now if he had given me the price of it, ' ' remarked Frank. This was the first time Frank had hinted to any of his friends that he was worried over his financial affairs. It had slipped out this time before he thought, but he had no intentions of trying to excuse it now, although it was this, that had worried him of late instead of the various excuses he had made to his friends. The evening passed rapidly and as Joe was putting on liis overcoat to go home, he threw his hand out and acci- dentally struck the silver vase and sent it rolling off of the table. In the scramble to get it, it had rolled under Joe ' s foot and was badly bent. Frank picked it up. They both tried to straighten it, but it was no use. The bottom was nearly out. " What ' s this? " cried Joe, picking up a small piece of yellow iia]»er which lay folded on the table. Frank quickly unfolded the note and read it. His eyes grew big and bright and his face flushed. " Read it out loud, " said Joe, who in his excitement had forgotten his manners. " Under the old cotton wood tree, " it began, " on my old liome ])lace is buried a treasure for you. Three feet from the root of the tree, on the east side, dig down until you find your treasure. ( Signed ) ' George Ruskin. Frank sank into his chair. Was it true? He picked up the paper and read it again. There was some mystery about it which fairly dazed him. " Well, Frank, I must go. I hope it proves to be what we think it is. Let me know as soon as you find out. Will you? " With this, Joe left. The note was read many times, and Frank, seating him- self at his table, wrote his weekly letter home. A copy of the note was made and slipped inside the envelope and the letter sealed. Putting the note in a safe place, he examined the vase and found that it had a false bottom which had held the note. Four dajs passed and still Frank received no answer from home. On the fifth day, however, the mail carrier handed him a registered letter, which he quickly opened. He read the contents. It was from home. Mrs. Ruskin gave the exact description of the hiding place of the treasure, that was given in the note, only she added that a copper box was found containing a large sum in silver coins and a check for ITUATED on a little plat of ground two blocks east of the business section of Ravena, a small town in southern Illinois, stood an imposing building. Dark red brick formed distinct lines all over the structure. But to Ravena this was a mansion, the best the town could afford. Here five days of every week the children of the village gathered while the teachers imposed on them the curriculum necessary for an education. Indeed, it will suffice to men- tion that the auspicious edifice in question was none other than the home of Ravena High School. On the morning of April second the students gathered as usual in the fold of their dear teachers. But this day was destined to mark an epoch in the history of Ravena High. At the close of the school day a rousing mass meeting was held, the idea was to promote a track team for the com- one thousand dollars, a part of which she had forwarded to Frank. His eyes grew bright and his face flushed with joy as he finished the letter. There could be no better news than this. A heavy weight had been lifted from his heart and Frank felt freer now, than he had since a child. The debate was won in favor of Salem and the school year finished. Frank graduated from college with honors and with no more financial worries. His summers were spent in rest, which he greatly needed and he was, as J oe had expressed it, ' ' mighty darn proud of that silver vase. ' ' NINA WILCOX. t Margin ing year. Never before had anything of this nature been at- tempted in Ravena. Speeches were made by the members of the other athletic teams. The captain of the past season ' s foot-ball team rose toward the close of the session. He spoke of going among the business men of the city and how they had pledged their financial support providing a meet was held in the home town. He told how an excellent team could be developed providing the students would but do their part. He spoke of Valon, a city forty miles east, of twice the population, and considered one of the strongest athletic schools in the state, and how perchance a meet might be arranged. The desired effect was gained. Each student voiced his or her approval of the plan. On the next day the following note was sent to Valon, addressed to the members of the High School. " You are earnest ly invited to participate in a dual traclv meet to be lield in Ravena, Illinois, Mav 17tli. " Respectfully, Students of Ravena Higli IScliuol. Consternation reigned in Valon upon receiving the message. Rumors circulated around school to the effect that Ravena had unearthed some ANonderful athletic giant and with his poAvers wished to defeat Valon. Again some told that the challenge Avas a .l »ke of some irreverent bystander. Think of it! Little Ravena challenging strong Valon. In size, David and Groliath. But hoAV in powers? Nevertheless, the fact remained that the cliallenge stood, and in due course of time was accepted by Valon. With the acceptance, a ork in tlie tA o schools began in earnest. Especially was this true in Ravena. Going back to the da.A ' (d ' the eventful " pep " uieeting. a broad sliouldered, well built boy hy tlie name of Harris Larkins, walked sloA ly ahmg the street toAvard the business section of toAvn. He paused for a moment before an u]itoA n stoi-e in Avhich he Avorked after school hours and debated to himself Avhether to try f(»r the track team or to devote liis after tinu- to Avork. Thi-ee years ])i-evi()us Hari-is ' father had b.een kilh-d n an accident and since that tiuu ' liis motliei- and sisters had relied ujon him f(tr su]i]tort. It had been quite a task for a boy of liis age, but with the aid of the ] ro])- erty the father had left they had managed thus far. Noav. if Harris Avent out for track it meant that he Avould i-eceive less pay in liis Avork. But if he did not enter, the school AA(Mild suffer, as lie was considered a good runner. Thus he debated, " Perhai ' s I can get along by using some things a little longer and by my going out, otliers may also be intlu- eneed to take up Avith track, — the cleanest of all scholarly sports. " With this he decided to devote liis time and ener- gies to systematic training. I ' inally there remained l)ut one day before the big meet. The boys had been faithful in practice, for they Avere de- termined to shoAV tlieir proud neighbor that she Avas not the only one that could " do things. " The coach had de- clared himself satistied. By being satistied he meant that Ravena had .i fail- chance to Avin. Harris had slioAvn his superiority to all competitors in the half and ([uarter-mile. DoAvn the line the " quarter- mi lei-s " started. In the group there Avas one Avho easily out- distanced the rest, and this one Avas Larkins. The race being over he noAV stepped over the fence that surrounded tlie race track. He picked up his coat and threw it about him, then Avalked to a (luiet spot to rest, aAvay from the crowd. A small slim person detached himself from the peo- ple around the track and ambled along the grass toward Larkins. To tlie youth the approaching figure seemed a total stranger. " Who ' s going to run the (luarter-mile tomorroAvl Are vou And do yt)u run anything else ? " The stranger ques- tioned, appearing much interested. " Yes, that and a feAv other things, perhaps, if the coa(di sees tit, " came the reply. " Want to make some easy money? " inquired the stranger. " Sure I ' d like to see the felloAv Avho doesn ' t, " Avas the ansAver. ' ' Hoav can it be done? I could use some ready cash handy at this time. ' ' " Oh, it ' s easy. Some of us Valon fellOAvs bet that our " (luarter-miler " Avould lead at least a fourth of the way in the race tomorroAv. All you have to do is let him lead that distance. Then you can pass him or any old thing. There ' s twenty dollars in it if you want to take it up. " " But that is against the training of the coach because he does not want us to lag behind in any of the races, ' ' ob- jected Lavkins. At this the stranger knit his brows for a few moments. Soon his countenance cleared. " Eureka, I have it, " he cried. ' ' When you have gone about ten yards you can stum- ble and fall down. Nobody will thiuk anything about it. They will think you are tired from running in some of the other events. That will give our quarter a chance to lead. " Yes, that ' ll work. It ' s not selling the race or any- thing that bad. I ' ll take it up for one time, " Harris as- sented. Contrary to the expectation of the town and the hope of the whole student body, the eventful day arrived with black clouds overhanging the sky. Luring the early morning a heavy storm broke loose and literally drenched the ground. For Its initial opening the track meet seemed to be foreor- dained with bad luck. " But soon Old S ' ol ' s face shone once more and by twelve o ' clock conditions were ideal for the affair. Soon after the dinner hour a crowd commenced to flood into the gates of the race track. The ' ' one-thirty ' ' train had come in " bearing with it an immense crowd of ' ' fans ' ' and Valon supporters. The bleachers were " packed " half an hour before the scheduled time and the people had over- flowed into the race track. For weeks the newspapers of each of the two to A ns had published long columns predicting victory for their respect- ive home teams and defeat for the opponent ' s. The glad news was also obligingly conveyed back and forth by visitors in the different towns. Interest in the coming struggle was keyed to a high pitch. The crowd in the race track was pushed back by the marshals and the two teams marched out amid the cheers of the multitude in the bleachers. But there was one athlete A ho did not hear the cry of joy. He did not join in any loud expressions of praise. He was silently thinking to himself. There Avas a grave suspicion in his mind that the quarter- mile man for Valon Avas what old folloAvers of the game called a " quitter. " In other words, a " quitter " was one who could run well provided he held first place. But let another overtake this lead, and then the " rabbit blood " shoAved. The " quitter " lacked the necessary " punch " and easily gave up, hence the name. A dash was run off Avith victory for Valon. Then sud- denly came the call for the half mile. Harris I.arkins rose and Avalked slowly over to the group of athletes. He drew third place in the start. The starter called the preliminary directions. Bang, went the pistol. They were off. Harris easily took first place and fixed a good distance between himself and the rest of the racers. As he broke the tape a loud cheer came from the croAvd, for young Larkins was popular Avith the toAvnspeople. The next event wherein Harris Avould participate was the quarter-mile dash. As he thought of the affair of the previous evening Avith the Valon supporter he became in- wardly doubtful about the money. One thing was certain, he must win the race, for as honors were now going the pos- session of the banner of the meet would depend upon this event. The sporting Avriter of the " Va Ionian Bee " had placed the climax of the contest upon the " 440. " A voice sounded, " Last call for the quarter: " Young Larkins picked himself up Avearily and walked slowly over to the starting line. Inwardly he cursed himself for his foul contract. But he had agreed to his part of the transaction and a bargain Avas a l»argain. He must keep his Avord. But Avhat if the race Avas lost! The starter spoke. ' ' On your mark! Get set! " Crack! the gun sounded. The race was on. The crowd lurched forward at the report of the firearm. Larkiu easily took the lead. Soon he came to the place where he had agreed to fall down. True to his word, he stumbled and fell ; but he had forced himself to do it. As he went down his heel slipped from his track shoe. Hastily picking himself up and drawing on his shoe he raced on. Now, though he ran harder than ever, the best he could do was to tie the slim little Valonian. With a heavy conscience Harris Larkins stood by the railing to watch the rest of the proceedings. He could not go bac-k and mingle with his team-mates and hear their jeers and comments. No. He remained leaning on the fence in silence. Soon every event had been disposed of. The crowd be- gan swaying to and fro. Then the " announcer " stepped into the grand stand and asked the people not to disperse. Tlie number of points for each school was exactly the same. The judges and representatives had decided the quarter- mile would be run once more, as this was the only event in which first place had been tied. Hope surged through the breast of Harris Larkins as he listened to the announcement. Here was his chance. He had agreed to the base scheme for one time and had done it ILL DENSMORE, roughly clad in the garl) of a mou ntaineer, slowly climbed a narrow pass on the crest of the Sierra Nevadas. A dark frown overshadowed his face and his feet seemed to drag heavily, for his heart was far from light and his thoughts were not the brightest. And well miglit he looik dejected, for he was to be an outcast. once. Now he might be able to redeem himself in the eyes of his schoolmates and friends. He stepped to the starting line with a light heart and crouched, listening intently for the sound of the pistol. It came shortly and once more a race was on. The nimble " Valonian " started with a spring but had gone but a short distance when a Ravena athlete came up with him, and then slowly forged ahead. Now there was quite a distance between the two racers. As Larkin broke the tape ten yards in advance of his opponent a shout louder than ever came from the bleachers. The people poured from their seats and swarmed all over the track. The exhilerant crowd started for the main part of town. It had been a great meet. Ravena had fought every inch of the way and won. But nobody possessed any more real joy than did young Larkins. Rejoicing he left the grounds with his team- mates. As the champions passed through the gate, a hand was laid on Larkins ' shoulder. The small personage of the (nening before with a jerk of his hand beckoned for the young man to come aside. in silence the vouth continued the journey with his team-mates. ' FRANK GUTHRIE. an exile, driven from home and all civilization, if he might term it such. It was in the early autumn of the year 1858, the day of the pony express and the prairie schooner, when the west was really wild and wooly. The gold fever was somewhat aliated, and although the mines were flourishing, other en- terprises were being pursued with perhaps as much ardor as the niiniug industry. A week before, James Davis, a banker in the little village, had been attacked and robbed, and left in an unconscious condition. He never regained conscious- ness, but " shuflled off his mortal coil " the day following the assault, and Densmore, largely because of the trumped up charges of a certain Dick Benson, a former rival of Dens- more, was convicted of the crime. Only by his early escape, realizing that the evidence was too strong against him, had Densmore evaded lynching. Now, as he made his ascent up the narrow path, his thoughts were indeed gloomy. Natur- ally lie resented the idea of spending his life as a hermit, and as he pictured himself in such a condition, a mad desire to hurl himself down the steep mountain side seized him, but still he trudged on. Gaining the summit, he turned to look back, and heaved a long sigh. The afternoon was waning and as he had trav- eled almost unceasingly since the wee hours of the previous night, he was nearly exhausted, and he sat down upon a rock to rest. Before him lay the beautiful mountain side, radiant with the glory of the sunset. Far below a small stream trickled musically over rocky ledges, making foot notes as it reached the foot of the mountain. Weary goats browsed lazily on the scanty grass aud herbs. The scarlet maple leaves glowed in the sunlight, as if blushing, perhaps be- cause they had been so green all summer. The jaybirds sang vociferously, their strident tones resounding through the cool, refreshing atmosphere, like the tinkle of pennies and shingle nails in a school boy ' s pocket. But William Densmore saw not the beautiful scene, nor did he hear the cheerful chirping of the jaybirds. All seemed dark and cold to him, for he was thinking only of his own predicament. Suddenly, as he sat gazing ahead, a new scene seemed to present itself to him. He leaped to his feet imagining that he was asleep, and slowly-, the deep frown that had graced his visage, changed to a look of bewilderment. " Ah ! " he cried, " a mirage, " for although he had never before experienced seeing this phenomenon, he realized that this must be the explanation of what he beheld. ■ " He dropped his wardrol e, which was carefully wrapped u] in his large red napkin, and stared intently at the extra- ordinary sight. There appeared to be three horsemen, one of them evidently a pony express rider. Densmore recog- nized the place to be Moosehead Pass, which was some six miles distant from where he now was. The express carrier was probably two hundred yards ahead of his pursuers and seemed to be keeping his lead only with great difficulty. Then Densmore saw the two bandits halt for a moment. One turned his horse and started in another direction, obviously thinking that he would head oft ' the express rider at some point further down the trail. The other again took up the chase, though perhaps not so hotly as previously. Then the scene faded and Bill saw no more, as if awakened from a dream. He resumed his position as before on the rock. Pos- sibly it lay in his power to aid the rider, perhaps to save his life, but somehow it did not appeal to him. The train ran within a quarter of a mile from where he was sitting, almost at the base of the mountain, yet why should he attempt to assist a man! Man had forced him to flee from his home, his wife and children, from all that he possessed, or cared to possess. Man had called him a murderer and a thief, to be sentenced to death, all because of mere jealousy aud petty envies. He almost felt like sympathizing with the bold depredators who sought the life of the express rider. No, there was no reason for him to assist a pony express rider. However, as Densmore reasoned thus with himself, he remembered that he was still a man, and that he had no right to .stand off and allow a fellow being to be murdered by an ontlaw. Would his hard feelings, even though they be justly so, be appeased in an} degree to know that he had permitted the crime, when he might have prevented it? Would he not really be a murderer, afte r all! With these thoughts on his mind, he quickly arose, lifted his wardrobe to his shoulder, and hastened down the mountain side toward the trail. He carefully examined his revolver, then crouched down by the side of the path to aAvait the coming of the express rider. In the growing dusk he was l)arely distinguishal)le, kneeling, as he was, in the briars and underbrush. Soon he heard the clatter of hoofs and he looked up cautiously. The rider was scarcely a dozen rods ahead of the nearest pursuer, who was tiring an occasional shot at the fleeing horseman. The second bandit, wlio had evidently failed in his attempt to cut off the fliglit of the express rider, followed at a. short distance behind the tirst. As the rider flew past, Densmore saw that the horse was laboring greatly. His nostrils Avere extended and he was white Avith perspiration. Densmore cocked his revolver. Then as the luarauder darted by, lie took as careful aim as possible and fired. The outlaAv lunged forward and fell from his steed Avithout a shout. His comrade checked his horse, Avheeled, and made a hasty retreat. Densmore iired a couple of shots aftei- him, but w iTh no effect. Then he turned toAvard the other fallen man. He knelt over him and felt his pulse, but his heart had ceased to beat. He then turned the man ' s face toward the light, Avith a cry of astonishment, for it Avas none other than the face of Richard Benson that he saAV. Presently the express rider, a young, robust looking fellow, came running up. " That was a close call, young feller, " said Densmore, rising to greet him. " Yes, pard, you ' ve sure done me a good turn, " replied the rider warmly. " Well, your friend ' 11 never try to rob the mail again, " said Densmore grimly, ' ' He ' s stone dead. " The young felloAv gazed at the dead man silently, with a certain sadness in his eyes. Densmore knelt again beside the man and looked at him coldly. " AVhat ' s this? " he exclaimed, his eye catching the gleam of a small bright stone lying in a pool of blood beside Benson. " Looks like the set out of a ring, " replied the young rider, " a ruby. " " Or a bloodstone, " laughed Densmore icily. " But maybe it Avon ' t look so pink Avheu I get some of the villian ' s dirty blood brushed off, " he continued, rubbing it dex- terously. " It ' s lieginning to look green now. A pink emerald, as I ' m alive ! " Densmore thrust the stone into his pocket, and arose to his feet. " S ' ay! " he exclaimed suddenly, " didn ' t Jim Davis have an emerald ring stolen! " The rider kncAv notliiug of the crime, but Densmore felt contident that he fould use the stone to clear himself of the charges. A search of Benson ' s clothing resulted in the finding of a l»auk book belonging to Davis, but otherAvise nothing of iuiportance. Densmore then related the story of the murder of Davis to the rider, Avho listened attentiA ' ely. " Did TOii say your name was William Densmore? " lie asked when Denmsore had finished. " Yes, that ' s always been my handle. " " I believe I have a special delivery letter for you then. " The young rider dreAv a black margined letter from his coat pocket and handed it to Densmore. The man opened it eagerly and read its contents. It told of the death of his uncle, who had lived in Maine, and had left a large estate to him. " Perhaps the world isn ' t all bad, after all, " he thought. The two men lifted the body of Benson onto his horse. The young rider mounted his steed, bade Densmore fare- well, and started again toward the village, leading Benson ' s horse, on which lay the dead man ' s body. Densuiore shouldered his wardrobe, and again began the ascent of the mountain. The full moon now shone brightly above him, lighting the mountain side almost as day. The stars gleamed clearly out of the blue canopy of heaven and the sparkling stream reflected liack their twink- ling liglit. The leaves rustled gently on the stately pines. The star of hope rose anew in Densmore as he turned his steps towards home and he saw the beautiful scene with a light heart, and the world again seemed fair and just. ARTHUR LUSX. EXCHANGE One sunny afternoon of a warm day in May, Miss June " Polaries " was sitting on tlie front porch of her home. She was dressed in a " blue and white ' " dress and liad her dark, curly hair dressed quite hecomingly. She looked very charming, sitting there in a ham- mock surrounded by a luxuriant growth of wisteria, the blossoms of which were waving happily in the soft breeze. She was tatting, for no one in the town of " Auroean " could be popular without knowing how to tat. She was working intently and did not notice someone come up the walk behind her. June, feeling that she was being watched, looked up and encountered the gaze of Mr. " Bulletin, " the village school master. Her i ' ace turned " crimson, " but after a short time she gathered her shattered wits and invited him to be seated. As they were sitting there Mrs. " Tatler, " who lived next door, passed the house on her way home from making a call. Miss " Polaris ' " " pulse " fairly throbbed, for she knew Mrs. " Tatler " would tell her mother. Who had gone to the country for the day, about her caller. Now June was not a bad girl, but her mother was very ill-natured about her having " beaus, " as she called them. After visiting awhile Mr. " Bulletin " said he must go, and asked if he might call again. June said she had no objections, but she did not know what her mother might say. When Mrs. " Polaris " returned that evening, she had scarcely entered the house when Mrs. " Tatler " came over to ask her if she knew the school " Tooter " had been to see June that .afternoon. Mrs. " Polaris " became very angry and said she would settle with June for that. After Mrs. " Tatler " had gone home, Mrs. " Polaris " called to June, " Come here and give an account of yourself. It seems I can ' t go away without you have one of those ' beaus. ' I suppose I ' ll have to stay at home all the time to keep them away. " " Now sit down and give me a " Review " of tlie afternoon, " ejaculated her mother. June, who was trembling in every joint, tim- idly told her mother how it had happened that Mr. " Bulletin " came to be with her that after- noon. The interview ended by Mrs " Polaris " say- ing: " I want you to understand that this is to be the last time that " Bulletin " fellow comes to this house. " It was some time before June met Mr. " Bul- letin " again and she worried night and day how she should answer his question, and the days began to " Dragon. " She liked him very much and did not want to offend him. About a week later as June was returning from calling on a friend, she met Mr. Bulletin. He turned and asked if he might walk home with her. She said that her mother did not approve of her having gentlemen friends come to her home, and she would not do anything against her mother ' s wishes. So the school master went on his way think- ing deeply. He made up his mind that it was up to him to get on the good side of the " old lady. " For two years this love sick man racked his feverish brain over and over for some plan by which he might endear himself to her mother. For he would have given the " World " to win this girl. ' One sunny afternoon in September of the third year, June and her mother decided to take a drive in the woods, which were not far distant. They took one of June ' s girls. Miss " Comet, " along with them. They were having a very pleasant drive when Mr. " Lion, " a young lawyer and Mr. " Bulletin " came around a bend in the road in Mr. " Lion ' s " new " Red and White " limousine the " Bumble B. " Mr. " Lion " and Mr. " Bulle- tin " were busy talking and Mr. " Lion " forgot to " Tooter. " The horse suddenly became frightened and started to run. The gentlemen stopped the car and tried to stop the frightened horse. At last they succeeded in stopping it just as it was about to run down a steep embankment. The women were very thankful to the gentle- men for having saved their lives. The buggy was so badly broken that they had to go back to town in the car, which of course pleased the school master very much. When they reached the " Polaris " home, Mrs. Polaris seemed as cool toward him as ever. Apparently she was not to change her attitude toward him. June pled with her mother to show Mr. Bul- letin some kindness, and at last she conde- scended to ask him to lunch the next day. She took up her " Quill " pen and wrote him an invitation for lunch, she also invited Miss " Comet " and Mr. " Lion. " How happy Mr. Bulletin was. His dream w as to be realized and he would at last win his June. The " Auroran " " Advocate " has just an- nounced a double wedding to take place some time in June. IKE BATY, Janitor OLIVER SMITH, Engineer The men who care for our Physical Comfort and Wellbeing Our Literary Societies With the issuance of this book we come again to the end of a scliool year which has been one of great itniprovement along different lines. This is especially noticeable in the literary work. As in former years, four literary soci- eties were organized at the beginning of the school year. The literary work being compul- sory for the Seniors only, it could hardly be expected that the entire student body would enter this work. Yet out of an enrollment of almost three hundred and twenty students, over two hundred and fifty have taken up this work. No one can deny the benefits derived from belonging to one of these societies and taking up this work. The names of our societies are the Clio, Ham- iltonian, Thalian, Euterpean. In addition to these four it was decided to organize some so- ciety to take up forensic work. This society was organized two years ago and was named the Debater. The students are divided alpha- betically and the number apportioned to each society. The work taken up by these societies is of various natures. Regular meetings are held every third Monday afternoon, thus giving plenty of time for the students on the programs to practice. Each society has two or more fac- ulty members who, in cooperation with the of- ficers of the society, arrange the programs and look after the preparation of the work as- signed. The work taken up by the four regular so- cieties consists of dialogues, monologues, farces, musical numbers, discussions and orig- inal essays. The original numbers are among the best things on the programs. About two or three times a year we have a public or open program. Outsiders are cordially invited and we have very large crowds. These programs are given jointly by the societies. This method brings the parents and fellow townspeople in closer connection with the school and gives them a better idea of how the work is con- ducted. The advantage of literary societies in any school cannot be too highly emphasized. It is really a part of the preparation of young peo- ple, which enables them to take their part in the outside world. It puts confidence and ease of manner into them. They are not afraid to say what they consider right publicly and they are better able to express their thoughts. It makes lively, energetic citizens; it takes away all the excess reserve and does away with tim- idity of speech and manner. And lastly it cre- ates a spirit of good fellowship which really is the true spirit of life. The debating society also has made great progress. This society was organized last year and it certainly made a good showing. The meetings are held every other Monday ev- ening at the High School building. This year we were successful in securing a debating coach, Mr. Montgomery being an experienced debater himself, he was able to pick out the strong and weak points of each debater and help them greatly. Last year we entered a triangular debating league with Grinnell and Albia, both of whom had had previous experience in debating. Nev- ertheless, by continuous and persistent work, O ' jr boys won one debate. Again, this year, we entered the same league and again we won one debate and lost the other. But this year we beat Grinnell and that is a great satisfaction. Although our High School has had these or- ganized literary societies only three years, they now form one of the most important factors of our school life. They have helped to make our school life what it should be, a period of in- struction without the feelings of imprisonment and restraint. But rather one of cheerful, con- scientious and ambitious fellowship, both among the students and fa culty.

MILES Incler the capable supervision of Miss Miles, for the past three years, music has now an established place in Newton High School. The Girls ' Glee Club was re-organized this year and has furnished a part on al- most every open program. It is not large, hut has certainly done well. The orchestra is unusually large and the gciod work which it has been doing shows patic ' nce and persistence on the part of Miss Miles. The Wednesday and Friday music periods have been pleasant intervals in the routine of our school life and we hope that the com- ing students of all classes will support their supervisor with as much if not more enthu- siasm than the present classes have do ' ..e. t I i A Rose 0 ' Plymouth Town i t i || Given by Newton High School for Benefit »t of Newtonia Annual ' T $ I t Lister ' s Opera House, April 9, 1915 ± ± Jt " The Haymakers and the Dairymaids " — Twelve young la- |I dies and gentlemen.

The Commercial Department of the Newton High School has enrolled in it about sixty pupils and ranks as high in every respect as any other commercial high school department in the state of Iowa. During the past year a great n.any changes have taken plkce in this department. One of them is the adopting of the Goodyeai--Marshall Clerical Service System, and another is the installing of office fixtures which have four windows, namely: Real Estate, Insur- ance and Freight; Wholesale; General Agency; and the Bank. The Penmanship Department is doing some very fine work. Several of the students have earned a Zaner penman- ship certificate and it is expected that a large number of others will have earned certificates before school is out this spring. The specimens turned out by these students are very good and may be seen hanging about the walls ot the room. The Shorthand and Typewriting room is partitioned off from the Bookkeeping room by a glass partition. The Gregg Shorthand is being used and the classes are required to write at the rate of a hundred words a minute before thev are allowed a credit for their work. " There are two kinds of typewriters used: The Remington and the Underwood. A pennant is offered by the Rem- ington Company to any one writing twenty-five words a minute, and a certificate and card case to anyone writing forty words a minute for ten minutes. The Underwood Company also offers a certificate to anyone writing forty words net a minute. Several students have obtained these rewards at this time, and one of the first year students has received the forty word certificate offered by the Remington Company; all this goes to show that this depart- ment is up to a very good standard. — M.

March 23, 1915. Dear Alnmui Editor : What of the High School of " ye olden time? " Here it is in the late 80 ' s — Snperintendent Dan Miller, whom we still love, and High School Teacher Miss Jnlia Cavanaugh (now Mrs. W. 0. McElroy ) ,longmay she live! Please note, the high school teacher — one only. She knew everytliing ! Tang ' ht everything except chemistry and philosophy, which Prof. Miller tanght. These were the only lessons recited outside of the one room. I have heard it said that they teach so many more studies now, but a com- parison of the courses of study of tlie two periods fails to convince me. This reminds me of an Oklahoma gentleman upon being tdld that our club had planned a three years ' study of Germany, turned to his wife and said : " Why, your club did Germany in one evening, did it not! " First, in the morning, we had roll call, when each one responded with a quotation; here authors, great and small, ancient and modern, met on common grounds and many a memory gem has remained with us through the years. Next, Miss Cavanaugh read the Bible. Then we all sang with more or less force, according to our enthusiasm. You see this was in the happy days, before such a large percent of the people learned that they " couldn ' t sing. " The " organist " was one of the girls. I can still hear the " toot el loot, toot el lootle lootle loot, toot te toot, " that helped us swing the In- dian clubs or dumb bells. Oh, yes! Our athletics included the whole school. Then the lessons, recitations and study classes, all in one room. Here we learned application or concentration of mind. We were supposed to be attentive to our own business only. One of our members (I should be careful now what I say of him, as he has been serving nobly as one of your honorable school 1)oard) but imagine a very studious appearing young man standing with eyes earnestly fixed on his Caesar (and ears listening intently) trying to translate in class ' ' Caesar crossed the river on — on — raft- ers and flues. " The text should have been " rafters and canoes. ' ' Was it an angel whisper, slightly misunderstood or w as it because his father was a lumber merchant! We occupied seats according to our class. By tliese ways of work and study we became close friends. The mem- bers of our class were held together with a bond of love like that of l r()thers and sisters, the loss of one a personal sorrow. Of our class of ' 88 — twenty-one in all, we first lost Birdie Walsh, a sweet, good girl; then Kittie Mulhern,of her I need not speak further (you all know our little poetess) ; after this our ranks were unbroken until recently when we lost Charlie Boyd. What a host of goiod things and true, have recently lieen said of him. As a boy he showed the nol)le nature and always pleasant manner; perfect in school work, we were proud of him as our valedictorian and in those days class honors were given in accord with the High School record. A few days later one more was taken, Celia Lyday, a noble girl " abounding in good works, " always en- tliusiastic for ' 88, " We shall meet, but we shall miss her. " But love and ])ieinoi " v called me aside, I must back to tlie school. What of pnnislimeuts? One instance will, perhaps illustrate Miss Cavanagli ' s supreme tact. One day up(Ui her leaving the room, we visited quite a bit; the sudden silence when she returned could l e felt. She said pleasantly, " All who have been misbehaving in my absence may sta nd. " About three-fourths of us stood. " All wlio wish to express an apology for so doing may be seated. " All but eight sat down Ave thought to show our " smartness " by remaining standing. She simply added in her usual pleasant way, " Whenever you wish to so express your ajiology, you may be seated. " That was the last refei-ence to the matter. Just as pleasant. There could lie l)ut oiie outcome. One by one we succumbed to the int-vitable and — sat down. " Ehetorical Days " , semi-monthly, they were grand ' . Again we all had talent Avliich we exhibited more oi- less Avillingly— but exhibit we must, that was one of the stronti laws. Solos, duets, (luartettes, choruses, debates, solilo- ({uies, recitations, from Barbara Fritchie, Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight, to Mrs. Caudle or Sockery Setting a lien. Somewhere along the line the whole school learned " Tell on Switzerland, " also " The Chase, " from Scott ' s Lady of the Lake. One of our class would m t be lonely in the middle of a desert if thinking (if those days, our school mates, our miles of good things memorized. Th( v live with us today and will be A ith us forever I Here I must say " (loodbye, " there is no sloi nng place. Sincerely, " MINNIE WILLIAMS " MORRISON-DODDS ' 88. Jackson, AVyo., March 2, 1915. Dear ' ' NeAvtonia ' ' Readers : I have been asked to write you s(»mething of life in Jack- son ' s Hole, Avhither we came a couple of years ago to take up a claim. The " Jackson Hole " country is an isolated, fertile val- ley surrounded by mountains. It is tAventy-eight miles from a railroad and it ' s only approach from the outside Avorld is over a rugged, mountain pass. The road, never very good, is sometimes almost impassable, and in certain seasons it is a ditticult matter for the stage, which brings passengers and mail to make its daily trip. We came over this trail in May. At first we spent all our time admiring the grandeur of the scenery. But as we ascended, the snoAV greAV so deep that it covered the tele- phone poles and so soft that the horses Avould sink and be unable to rise and regain their footing. Oftentimes three of our four horses were doAvn at once, and a number of times we wei-e compelled to unhitch and leave one of the horses to rest aAvhile. Froui the top of the hill there is a Avonderful view of the valley and of Snake River. As we descended it •irew so slushy and muddy that Ave had to walk the last tAvo miles to the road house at the foot of the pass. When there I said, " I guess the boys are glad they are not Mormon polygamists with more Avives to go after. " There Avas a j. i],. „., — the in-oprietors are Mormons, deej) dyed in the faith : Since then I ' ve h arned that about half of the iieople here are Mormons. Thei-e is a Moruion. a Baptist and an Episcopalian church here. But the first service I Avent to in Wyoming was a regular pioneer service, held in a rancher ' s log cabin. AvluM-e we sat on store boxes and sang without the aid of books or accompaniment. Most of the ranchers here live in tAVO or three room log cabins, though there are a few really nice homes. Imagine our surprise when Ave Aveut into our neighbor ' s log cabin Lome to find it papered with newspapers ! I found it hard to Iceep from reading the walls. No matter how small the cabin or shack, or how large the family, visitors are always welcome. (3Aving to the inac- cessibility of the valley, conveniences are often lacking and many and ludicrous are the make-shifts resorted to. One ' s most aristocratic company doesn ' t object to sitting on an up-turned nail keg in absence of a chair. There are all kinds of people in here, some cultured and interesting, some untutored but interesting nevertheless, be- cause of the experiences they have had, and some rough and primitive but oftentimes big-hearted. We were fairly l)esieged with callers the first weeks. They came in all sorts of garbs, in all sorts of rigs and were all sorts, from the Mormon Bishop ' s wife to the poorest homesteaders. There are many rushing mountain streams which afford good trout fishing. Can you imagine how good the fish tastes when cooked over a camp fire in the open ? Almost all the women in here ride horseback. I have learned and spent about half of my time last summer in search of the cows, to visit the neighbors, and just for tlie sake of the fresh air and scenery. In times of deep snoAv some of the settlers use either skies or webbs to get around on. I tried them and liad lots of fun — and tumbles. The hills and mountains shelter immense bands of elk. In winter the elks migrate to the lower valley in search of pasturage. They even enter the ranchers ' barnyard and compel him to i)ut high corral fences around his haystacks to protect them from invasion. In severe winters the elk are fed government hay in a huge corral for that purpose. It ' s quite a sight to see a thousand or so elk travelling single file along the snowy crest of some hill. By purchasing a license, each settler is allowed to shoot one elk for his Avin- ter ' s meat. Numbers of tourists are attracted here each year by the grandeur of the scenery, the elks and other large game. Every fall there is a three days ' celebration in Jackson called ' ' Frontier. ' ' Races of all sorts, bucking contests and the riding of wild steers forms the programs. Everyone goes and excitement runs high. The cow boys come in in all their finery of chaps, colored kerchiefs and huge hats, the typical western dress as seen in the movies. The girls, too, ride horseliack, wearing short skirts, high boots, flannel shirts, men ' s Stetson hats, and colored kerchiefs knotted about their necks. Lots of the women in here wear men ' s hats all the time, on the street, to church, everywhere. A great many stock can be and are raised in the valley very economically because of the vast extent of free range. Small grains are also raised successfully. New settlers are coming in every day, and it looks as though the valley has a great future before it. xlltlumgh so far away, we are still very mueh interested in Newton, the Newton schools and the success of " New- tonia. " Sincerelv vours, JENNIE ROERSMA KELLY. Long Beach, Cal., March 9. 1915. Mr. Ernest Jones, Alumni Editor, Newtonia. Dear Sir: I liave your favor of February 14, 1915, ask- ing for a letter of our sojourn in California, for the Annual. In a letter of this nature it is only possible to give a brief outline of some of the thinus we have seen and done, so the first thing that seems to present itself is a fish story or two. On last Sunday forenoon a large shark made its appearance in the ocean at Long Beach, at once the warning was given to the people in the surf to get out of the water, then s everal men watclied the sliaik mauoenver about the pier and at the psychological moment a harpoon was cast and struck the shark immediately back of its fins, but unfortunately the wooden handle of the harpoon snapped and the shark de- parted with a thorn in the flesh. A few days prior to this event some fishermen went out to deep sea and caught a whale, brouglit it near the pier, and then chartered another boat in which they took todirists out to view the whale at twenty-five cents a look. Some of the Newton contingents had the nerve to get out of the boat and take a stroll on the back of the whale. By actual measurement this whale was forty-one feet long; some fisli stories, but I vouch for the trutii of both. Yesterday Karl and I tool; our first dip in the Pacific, our stay was short but invigorating, after Avards had a swim in the plunge, tlie temperature of the ocean was sixty-one degrees. Last M(U)day we, I speak in the plural number, be- cause there were ten in the company from Newton, took a boat for Los Angeles Harbor, there we saw ships from differ- ent parts of the glol)e, one from the Orient. Among others were the Yale and Harvard, sister ships which ply between San Francisco and San Diego, these are passenger boats and make regular ti-ips. There was also the Governor, of New York, loaded Avith freight and passengers. At present there are five torpedo boat destroyers and submarines in the har- bor at Long Beach. We did not see any of the submarines, but had a good view of one of the torpedo boat destroyers as it came into the harbor. We can see some of these boats most any time of day maneuvering in the ocean in front of the city. A rather amusing incident occurred the other day as one of these boats was about to dock. A line was thrown to shore and the sailor who threw the line asked a man standing on the wharf, an American citizen, to fasten the line. His reply was, ' ' What do I pay you for ? ' ' Last week a company of Ne ■ton citizens, of which there are about forty here at present, made a trip to San Pedro by boat, thence by jitney to Point Fermin light house. This is a very high bluff on the ocean front, it has been made into a beautiful park and accommodations are provided for picnics both large and small. We ate our lunch in one of the places provided for us and others, afterwards we descended the trails to the rocks, as the tide was low it gave us an oppor- tunity to see many forms of life of the briny deep. There were snails carrying their house with them as they journeyed, small crabs, sea urchins, and forms of life that resembled gelatine, called aenemones, besides all kinds of sea weed, mosses, grass resembling what we know at home as slough grass, and of course, the kelp was there. This is the place where many of the abalona shells are found. I have mentioned only a few of the interesting things we have seen in and around Long Beach, but one thing of in- terest to me, and should be of interest to all the citizens of Newton, is the fact that we have a real representative here in the way of a Parsons Ditching Machine. This product of the nund and shops of our friends is interesting many tour- ists by the way it does its work, and figuratively speaking, I shake hands with the machine every time we meet. Lomg Beach is primarily a city of homes, a great num- l)er of wliich are owned by former lowans. As for business Long Beach is not in the same class with our own city. After having spent a month in Long Beach our stay has come to an end, for this time tomorrow we continue our jour- ney to San Francisco to attend the exposition, after which I will wend my way homeward. Yours truly, W. H. JASPER, Class of ' 88. Long Beach, Calif., March 9, 1915. Editor " Newtonia, " Newton, Iowa. Mv Dear Editor: Having been asked by the editor of the ' ' Alnmni Department " to write a few lines for that sec- tion of the paper which he edits, I shall be glad to tell of some of my trip and the places of interest which I have seen. As some of yon will remember, I left home the first of Sep- tember and went direct to Idaho, stopping off in Denver a day to bny some onting supplies and to see the city. The town of Mountain Home (Idaho) was the place that I was to leave the train to join the gang of which I was a member. I only met the mule team there, however, as the gang was about fifty miles off in the desert. The first night out we slept under the stars and had our first pleasant ( !) initia- tion to coyotes, horned toads and snakes, but nevertheless, managed to get some sleep. After a two days ' trip we ar- rived at the camp and I proceeded to get busy. We were em- ployed by the government to survey out the townships (six miles square) which, of course, was all virgin land. In that part of Idaho the land that is liable to cultiva- tion has to be irrigated and as all the water runs in canyons from foui ' hundred to twelve hundred feet deep, you can imagine y at a beautiful (?) country it was to survey in. All the ranches around which we surveyed were in the bot- toms of these canyons, where they were widened out. They rarely consisted of more than several acres and were more than twenty miles from anywhere. To a person coming from Iowa ' s broad acres, these places certainly looked mis- erable and not worth the price of the survey, which costs from eight to twelve dollars a mile, the price of course, de- pending on the value of the ground, canyons, etc. Then as there are eighty-four miles in each township to be surveyed, you can see what it amounts to. They raise immense flocks of sheep through this coun- try and in places where we could see for many square miles, at times four flocks would be visible, each band having usually several thousand head. This strip of desert country in whicli we were was rather of a triangular shape with the Elko, Sawtooth and Teton ranges on the various sides. These were always covered with snow and made a very beau- tiful setting; and as far as sunsets are concerned, I ' m afraid I am spoiled forever for those that I ' ll see in Iowa. Of course, you know what desert sunsets are supposed to be like. es] ecially if yoiu have read " Barbara Worth, " so there is no need of me going into detail. We continued this kind of work for almost tliree months and were only stopped by cold weather and tlie near prospects of snoAV. We sure had all the cold weather Ave wanted for several Aveeks before Ave quit : there was ten above zero weather and the SAvift moun- tain streams were freezing around the edges. We travelled by mule team wherever we Avent and as the toAvnships we surveyed were all over twenty miles apart, Ave saAv most of southern Idaho betAveen the state line and the Oregon Short Line railroad. After visiting the Arrow Rock dam near Boise, I left the last of November for Portland and the coast trip to Sonthei-n California. I certainly can recommend that part of the trip in Oregon along the Columbia river, for it ' s the finest scenery I ' ve seen yet. It would be a fine wed- ding trip for some of my enterprising class mates who have already fallen before Dan Cupid. I intended to take the l oat trip down the coast, but I would have had to wait sev- eral days in Portland, Avhich was at that time impossible. T came down through scenic Oregon and northern Cali- fornia to Frisco, but did not go out to the exposition grounds as I liave later plans for that. Golden Gate Park is cer- tainly a fine place to spend the day Avhile there; you can c-atfh tlie ears anywhere on tlie main street wliieli is called Market street. It seems that almost all that are cominii- to Calitornia this year are making Los Angeles their head(inarters, taking in the San Diego Fair- as a side trip, as that ean l)e seen m several davs, and then after a couple of weeks in Los An- geles, go on to San Francisco for a month, as this exi)osition is woi-thv of detail. Every sculptured gronp has its own siuniticance, as well as everything else shown there and should not l)e missed l)y any educated American. The climate in this country is fine except through Jan- uary, when it rains, but that isn ' t bad when you hear what it ' s doing in Iowa. It seems as though Long Beach is com- posed mostlv of retired Iowa farmers, so if you ' re an Iowa farmer, don ' t be asliamed of the fact. At present I ' m a rancher and can hoe onions with all the zest of an lowan. Be sure to ])ut my name down for a " Newtonia. ' ' as they are invaluahle after you leave your " Alma Mater. " ' I hope to see most of you out here this year, as it should be a part of your educatiim to see California while it is at its best Sincerely, HIRAM SLOANAKER, ' 14. Whittier, California, April 17, 1915. Dear r)ld Schoolmates and Friends of N. H. S. : It is with great pleasure that I send you greetings from southern Calitornia. with its delightful climate, fruit and beautiful flowers. It hardly seems ixi-ssible that six years have passed since the noble class of ' 09 went out frnm the High Scheol and en- tered upon their life ' s work. Of course, you all know it was the l)est class that ever graduated and as far as I can learn, all have made a success of whatever they undertook. I am expecting to see a great number of my former schoolmates out here this year, to visit the Exposition, for the improvement of their health or on a honeymoon trip. It ' s a great place to come and perfectly natural for me to boost for this country. Whittier is half-wav between the grand old ocean ana the mountains, making an ideal place in which to live. The citrus fruit, walnut and oil industries are the mam re- sources There are nine companies with over one hundred and tiftv wells in operation hx-ated in the Whittier hills, whose product brings $100,000 monthly. The lemon and orange orchards are beautiful now, l„.,ded with blossoms and the air is filled with their sweet fr-i-rance Tlu- hills are green and dotted with wild flowers, whUe towerinii above them are the snow-capped mountains. (This is the nearest I can c(mie to being a poetess). I am working in a real estate and insurance office, so 1 can tell you all about the laud, what it will produce and the in-ices, if vou are interested. Mildred finishes the State Normal School of Los An- geles, this June, with a class of five hundred. She has greatly eiijoved her work. Well this epistle is getting long so I will stop. We both send best wishes to the " Newtonia, " Class of 191o, and our old friends whom we would like to see. As ever, ALETA F. ARNOLD. N. H. S. Alumnus Domestic Science and Art The Department of Do- mestic Science and Art are very instructive and have l een exceedingly progres- sive this year nnder the management of the in- stmctor. Miss Lamb. Botli departments accommodate the fifth., sixth, seventh, and eighth grades as well as the High School girls. Those in the fifth and sixth grades take sewing and those in the seventh and eighth take cooking. This year the girls in the Nor- mal Training Course have taken the work Avith the regnlar High School class. The Domestic Science Course aims to take vip the practical and scientific side of house work, and also to be a definite aid in the teaching of Domestic Science in the rural schools. The High School class meets twice a week, from one o ' clock until two-fifteen; the first lesson is theory Avork and tlie second is for the practical work. The day of the practical lesson, after the girls put on their uniforms, which consist of a Avhite cap, apron, cuffs, towel, and holder, each girl takes her place at her own table. At this time the duties of the four housekeepers are divided auiong them. House- keeper number one ' s duty is to light the heater for the hot water and tend to the large stove, housekeeper number two is to look after the sink and bench and keep them clean, housekeeper number three tends to the supply table, and housekeeper number four sweeps the floor and puts the room in order. The girls are then recjnired to divide the recipes into small portions, each making an individual recipe. When the product is finished they take it to Miss Laml), who makes the necessary criticisms. After tliis the girls wash; the dishes. The dish washing is done in groups f)f twos, one Avashing and the other Aviping them. Some of the products made this year besides the canning of fruit, Avere custard, baking jjowder biscuits, Parker House rolls, croquettes, ices, etc. During the last semester the Higli School girls visited tlie Dairyland, Avhile studying the pasteuriz.ition of milk, and tlie mill, Avhile studying the manufacture of flour. Besides the regular Avork, an Easter dinner was served to the uieml ei-s of tlie High School Fac- ulty by the Higli Scho(d girls. The Domestic Art classes have been just as successful as the Domestic Science classes. They have taken up the cutting and drafting of patterns, Avliich is very beneficial. On the garments made in (dass. besides the embroidery Avork, they have vised a variety of stitches, such as hemming, run- ning, even l)asting, combination, and feather stitch. There has been a. numlier of beautiful toAvels and dresser scarfs made. Miss Lamb has accomplished a great amount of Avork this year and the girls in both departments greatly appreci- ate the instructions thev have received. Z. S. ' 16. DOMESTIC SCIENCE LABORATORY MANUAL TRAINING Manual Training Department Witli the closing- of the school year ends the most snceessfnl period in the history of this depart- ment ; not only in nnnd)ers have the classes increased, hnt also in the enthusiasm and interest shown by the individuals. In two years since the coming of Mr. Baird the department has increased from a single course in cabinet making, until it now (•onii)rises a full course in carpentry, mechanical and architect- ur;il drawing, cabinet m a k i n g, and lately a course in pattern making has been introduced. In addition to the regu- lar Manual Training room, another room Iras been fitted up for the drawing classes. Thus much is added to their com- foi-t, for it takes them away from the noise and dirt of the wood-working rooui. This plan is also used for tinishing work. The interest shown by the school board toward this de- partment is ])lainly shown by the instalhuent of machine tools, which now make it i ossible to turn out almost any kind of wood work. Among the machine tooils which have been added this year are : cross-cut saw, rip-saw, hand-saw, planer, jointer, and a mortise and tenon machine. Much credit should be given Mr. Baird for the " Slio]) Plan System " of grading which he has introduced. Each boy is re(iuired at the close of each period to till out a blank which tells the time spent at work, kind and amount of ' ork done. At the end of the week Mr. Baird checks over the blanks and any error is (piickly detected and reported. In this way it is easy to tell approximately how much each individual would be worth to an emphvyer. The students are allowed to make anything they choose, provided they are equal to the task, and consequently many kinds of furniture have been produced. The work is mostly of quarter-sawed white oak and made in Mission style, al- though many original designs have been carried out. Sdme of the things which students have made for themselves are: beds, davenports, tables, writing desks, cedar chests, morris chairs, table lamps, screens, telephone stands, piano benches, and many others. Part of each stmlent ' s time is recpiired to make some- thing for the scliool, and several pieces have already been fin- ished, and are now in use in the various rooms of the High School. Among tliese articles are: the large Physics dem- onstration desk, which is finely finished and complete in ev- ery detail: the trophy and music cabinet; the fixtui-es for Mr. Br nvning ' s Commercial Bank, which are as good as any factory could produce; the playground apparatus for the Central school ground, Avhich is Avell constructed and has made many children happy; and the stools for the drawing classes, which are good and dural)le. All of the things nuide this year will be on exhibition in the High School gymnasium at the close of the spring semester. Let evei-y citizen o ' f Newton who is interested in the work attend this dis])lay and i)ass his or her judgment upon the work. Last year one of our leading furniture dealers was .so delighted with the work that he exhibited the better ])ieces in his show windows. We hope that he will do so again this HOWARD WITMER, N. H. S. 1915. MANUAL TRAINING ROOM V. C. Montgomery, the athletic director, came to us highly recom- mended and surely proved his recommendations to be true by the work he has done tor Newton in the athletic line. Mr. Montgomery ' s training consisted of two years in Sioux City High School and of six years in Morningside College, two years being in the Academy. During his career he played and won honors in all four branches of athletics, having played three years of i- ' ootball, two years of basket ball, one year of base ball and being on the track team for four years. In all branches of athletics he won letters. Year before last Mr. Montgomery coached the much heralded Ida Grove football and basketball teams, the former capturing the Upper Iowa championship while the latter were the strongest conte nders for the chamjiionship. His work this year can not be too highly praised as he developed a strong team from the inexperienced material and a team which played good, clean football, the only kind he would allow them to play. Manliness in manner and speech was his policy, which the boys obeyed. In basketball he produced a very successful team out of entirely green material. So far in the track work signs of an excellent track team are visible, as much interest has been shown. Mr. Montgomery will be well able to do better work next year, as he is thoroughly acquainted with the boys and their habits and will be able to get better work from them. Here ' s to a greater success for him. Review of the Football Season of 1914 OACH MONTGOMERY issued Ins first call for foot ball candidates about the secoud week in yei)tend)er, to which twenty-five responded. Tlu team was led by Captain Fleck, Avho played his third year of foot-ball for Newton this year, and Witnier, Gnessford, Paschal, Dner, Kelley, Den- nis, Jones, Gharrett and Eine ' hart of the 1913 foot Itall team. Combined with some new ones, " ance, Mont- gomery and Harp, a strong and speedy team was developed. The schedule was the strongest any higli school would want, a little harder than most of the larger schools secure, for in- stance, West High of Des Moines, played about four good hard games, the rest being almost practice. Out of the seven games, five were extra liard ones the other two being nearer our eipuil. From the seven games we won three, lost three, and tied one, which is a very good record considering the oppositimi. Financially the season Avas a great succesvs, owing to tin- receipts of the Thanksgiving game at Grinnell. During the season expenses were kept up by the good attendance to the games, so that our part of the Thanksgiving receipts were clear money. At the close of the season sweaters Avere pre- sented to fourteen men, seven receiving their first " N, " four tiheir second, and three their third. Five of this year ' s uicn are lost by graduation, but with the abundance of good ma- terial ])roducable, Newton ought to be represeuted by the best team ever. A SUMMARY OF THE GAMES The first victim of the season was Valley Junction, w hich we easily defeated by a sixty-one to nothing score. Not much opposition could be expected from them as their team of thirteen men constituted nearly all the boys in the school. Our first defeat was administered by [owa City a ■eek later, the score being nineteen to seven. The score does not represent the strength of the two teams. The score stood even until Iowa City had a coTiple of good luck streaks A hich netted them t.Avelve points. Their luck consisted in the intercepting of a forward pass and of a blocked punt ( the onlv one of the season ) . East High came here October the tenth with the inten- tion of beating us by a fifty point margin, but were satisfied A ith a six point victory, for wliich they worked hard. The uame was one of the roughest and hardest fought, played on the local gridiron. Comparing the weight and experience. East High ought to have beaten us more, as they stood third highest in the state at the close of the season. On October the twenty-fourth Ave journeyed over to Ames. Avhere New- ton received the Avorst drubbing she has ever experienced. The score stood thirty-three to nothing, Avhich shoAvs just how good we played that day. Most of the " pep " the team had A as taken out of them in the first fcAV minutes of play hy the iujurv of Rinehart. From that time on some one was continually getting hurt and at the end of the game the team looked like a bunch just out of the hospital, or felt so. Ames li;id the rdvantage i)y having three teams ready for service at any moment, while we barely had a team. Two weeks later the old rival, Marshalltown, came down with truck loads of rooters and gave us the hardest battle so far in the se ison, we barely breaking even Avith them. Marshalltown ' s score came in the first (piarter, Avhile NeAvt m ' s came in the third. During the last (luarter Marshalltown made a des- l)erate effort to score again, but Avere not able to do so. The next week Ave journeyed up to Perry, where after a game Avhich Avas very i)()orly ret ' ereed, we avou by a score of twenty to twelve. The uaiue was played in a hard rain Avhich made carrving the ball and running very difficult, so the score A as not verv larue. The biggest kick we have of the game hap- pened at tlie end of the first half, when after the whistle had blown Perry annexed a toneli-down without any hinderance on onr part, movst of our men being off the field, but the ref- eree counted the score. Several times during the game Denny was penalized for " speeding " as we could see no other cause. Then came the biggest game of the year for N. H. S. that is teh game with Grinnell which is looked forward to all during the season and the game each team work to win more than any other game they play. The fighting spirit of old N. H. S. was at its highest point on Tliauksgiving day, and Newton trimmed her old rivals seven to six. About five hundred rooters went from NcAVton to support the scarlet and black. The High School students surely displayed their spirit by out-yelling Grinnell on her OAvn field, while the team were defeating tilieir warriors. The game was the cleanest and fastest game we have played with Grinnell. This game ended the foot l)all career for N. H. S. of five of the regulars, so to win, meant lots to tliem, as Grinnell has been victorious for the last two years. Dui-iug the game very little individual starring was visible, the whole team playing as one. Of course, some did better than others, Ca])t. Fleck played the best game he has ever played, so did Denniston, Dennis, Paschal, in fact, the whole team Avere stars. PROSPECTS OF THE 1915 SEASON The prospects of next season being a grand success are very promising. Glenn Paschal was chosen to jjilot the team and Avitli Coach Montgomery still to supervise them, there is no reason why they can not have a good team. With nine of this year ' s men left and with the material in the sei-ond team, a strong team ought to be developed. Here is to the success of tlie 1915 season. FOOTBALL BOYS Top Row-Paschal, Duer, Rineliart, Fleck. Denniston, Mr. V. Mont- Middle RoNv-Dennis, Guessford, Kelly. Witmer, Burnell, Vance, Mont- gomery, gomery. Lower Row— Thompson, Bair, De Bolt, Harp, Gharrett, Jones. CAPTAIN HAROLD FLECK Right half and full back. Birthplace, Sully, Iowa; weight, 160 pounds; height, five feet, eleven inches. Shorty has served N. H. S. for three years in good, hard foot ball and proved himself to be an able captain by his work this year. The team and rooters will miss his, " Get into them, fight your heads off! " ROY GUESSFORD Right Tackle. Birtliplace, Newton, Iowa; weight, 150 pounds; height, five feet, ten inches. Roj ' was a steady and heady player, playing his second year for N. H. S., but in a new position, as he played center last year. He handled his op- ponents easily, although they were heavier than he. His loss will be felt by the team next year. HOMER DENNISTON Left Half-back. Birthplace, Newton, Iowa; weight, 155 pounds; height, five feet ten in- ches. Denny has also served three years as a member of Newton ' s foot ball team. Denny is a speedy and heady player. His speed being the cause of him being penalized several times at Perry. Denny could be heard at any time of a game saying, " Eat ' em up, boys; eat ' em up! " HOWARD WITMER Left Guard. Birthplace, Mingo, Iowa; weight, 175 pounds; height, five feet, ten in- ches. " Bud " with his beef, was able to stop many plays in his three years with N. H. S. During the three years he played the guards or tackles and full back, as the case needed. His place will be hard to fill next year. 1 • GEORGE VANCE Right Guard. Birthplace, Newton, Iowa; weight 170 pounds; height, five feet, ten in- ches. This is George ' s first year of foot ball, in which he proved himself of being line material for an all state guard or tackle next year. Until this season George did not know how to play the game, but was easy to teach and soon became a hard and steady player. PAUL MONTGOMERY Left Half-back. Birthplace, Hull, Iowa; weight, 148 pounds; height, five feet, nine inches. Although he had a lazy appearance, his laziness did not last long when he was on the field, but on the contrary, he showed speed. He came to us from Ida Grove, where he had played in the back field. He could squirm through any line for a good gain. He leaves us this year. 4 L,... ■ GUY RINEHART Full-back. Birthplace, Newton, Iowa; weight, 180 pounds; height six feet, two Inches. " Rine " was the terror of the foot ball team. Every team that we played had for their slogan, " Get that Rine- hart. " Rine was the hardest and steadiest player Newton has ever had. If here next year he ought to make an all state full-back. GEORGE KELLEY Left Tackle. Birthplace, Omaha, Nebr.; weight, 150 pounds; height, five feet, eight in- ches. Cupid, as he is called, was light for the position, but handled his heavier opponents as if they were his weight. This is Cupid ' s second year and with another year left, he ought to be one of the best players in the state. CAPTAIN-ELECT GLENN PASCHAL Right End and Right Half. Birthplace, CoL ' ax, Iowa; weight, 144 pounds; height, five feet, nine and one-half inches. This was Glenn ' s second year of service on the first team, in which time he did some very good work. He is speedy, a good blocker and tackier. Glenn will lead the N. H. S. team next year. WALLIE DENNIS Quarter-back. Birthplace, Killduff, Iowa; weight, 140 pounds; height, five feet, seven inches. Wallie was the headiest player Newton has had for some time at the quarter-back position. His engineer- ing saved us from defeat several times. He has two years yet in which to make an all state player if he keeps up the pace set this year. BAYARD DUER Center. Birthplace, Eagle Grove, Iowa; weight 199 pounds; height, five feet, ten and one-half inches. Bayard played his first year on the first team this year, but had second team training last year. His work was excellent and much can be ex- pected from him next year. AZIEL GHARRETT Lett End and Guard. Birthplace, Lexington, Illinois; weight, 155 pounds; height, five feet, eleven Inches. Tubby was a hard and speedy play- er. He was good at catching forward passes and a good tackier. More will be heard from Aziel next year if he does as good as he did this year, it be- ing his first. BENJAMIN JONES Utility Player. Birthplace, Momonshire, England, weight, 125 pounds; height, five feet, three inches. Ben was the smallest player on the team, but proved himself an able player regardless of his size. He played almost every position on the team at some time during the season and played them all well. Next year Ben ought to get away with one of the end positions with ease and if he does, something will be heard from him. A Review of the Basket Ball Season About the second week of December, Coach Montgomery gave out his first call for basket- ball candidates. A squad of eighteen reported. None of last year ' s squad were back except three subs., Rinehart, Witmer, Griebeling. Around these three the team was centered, with Harp, Duer, Fleck, Montgomery, Paschal, Burnell, Gharrett and Jackson, all eligible for berths, a real battle was staged at every prac- tice. At the first of the season the team elected Clarence Griebeling as captain and he surely proved himself capable of the place. He was one of the fastest forwards Newton has ever seen and it took some very close guarding on the part of the opponents to keep him from scoring. Griebeling leaves the team this year as does Fleck, Burnell, Witmer, leaving only Harp, who was elected captain for next year ' s team. The season opened with a game with the Alumni in which they were beaten by a score of twenty-seven to twenty-four after a hard fought game. The next victory followed when Monroe appeared and were trimmed by the varsity in a loose game. Two weeks later the team journeyed over to Grinnell and there re- ceived their first defeat, inexperienced on a large floor, being the main reason. Grinnell having nothing on us when it came to team work. Oskaloosa came to Newton next and dealt a defeat to the team. The Osky team be- ing composed of older and more experienced men than those of Newton. Following the Osky game. Perry came to Newton floor. Here New- ton ' s men proved their skill by capturing a fast and scrappy game of thirty-five to twenty-six. Grinnell came next, the same scene was pro- duced in Grinnell, though the fighting spirit was kept up until the final whistle. The game that followed, with Marengo, served to make up for the two point defeat received on Maren- go ' s floor last year. They were treated in a seventy-one to eighteen manner while our team worked better than in any previous game. It was in the game with Osky that th e team re- ceived its worst defeat. Here the team fought stubbornly, but were forced to acknowledge the superiority of O. H. S. In the tournament at Grinnell Newton was eliminated from the running by Iowa City in the preliminaries. THE GIRLS ' BASKET BALL SEASON The interest shown in basket ball this year by the girls surpassed that of all other years. At the first of the season about forty girls re- ported for practice. During the flrst semester, practice was the main factor, but at the be- ginning of the second semester. Captains were elected and first teams chosen to play in the class tournament. The flrst game was between the Freshmen and Sophomores. The Sophomores defeated the Freshmen by a score of ten to six, the Freshies, however, made an excellent showing considering the practice they had had. The next game was between the Seniors and Juniors. This was the most interesting game of the series because the teams were so evenly matched. The Seniors won by a score of flf- teen to thirteen. Then the two winners played which were the Seniors and Sophomores. The Seniors were victorious by a score of twelve to eight, and became champions of the school. The two losers played next, which were the Juniors and Freshmen, in which the Juniors were the victors by a score of seventeen to seven. Throughout all the games a good spirit was shown by all and the girls were very enthusi- astic. THE BOYS ' BASKET BALL TOURNAMENT More interest was shown in the inter-class games between the boys this year than ever before. The flrst game was between the Freshmen and Sophomores in which the Sophomores were victors. The next game was between the Sen- iors and Juniors in which the Seniors were vic- torious. Then the two winners played for the championship which resulted in the Seniors becoming champains. The two losers played for third place and the Juniors were the vic- tors. The Senior team toeld the championship ' ast year as Juniors, making them champions for two years. By the Senior girls taking the championship the Seniors lead the school in athletics. BASVET BALL I ' o-j Low — Montgomery, Griebeling, Capt. Gharrett, Witmer. Kiadle Row — BiirneU, Coach Montgomery, Fleck. Lower Row — Harp, Jackson. A MUSHY ROMANCE T ' was a day in the spring. When the jaybirds did sing, That three laddies blew in i- ' rom Grinnell. So please hush the noise And the tale of these boys We will try to most truthfully tell. For a phone they did seek. To three girls they did speak; So they halted at Townsend ' s and called. Fate favored them well And the little dears fell. For they copped the first ones that they stalled. Irene cried: " O, Sure! " A full minute before Young Kurtz the question had popped; For Fleck wasn ' t there. So what did she care? Kurtz thought, " What a peach I have got. " Wilma rolled her bright eyes At the lovely surprise And then said she most gladly would go. And gink number three Smiled loud in his glee When Ruth said, " My heart cries out for a beau. " They strolled thru the night. In the scarlet moonlight; Talked of love and soulful eyes, ' Till the owls in the trees And the spiders and fleas Rent the air with their pitiful cries. When the time came to leave. Each heart sore did grieve. But the moon made light of their fun. Then the train came at ten And the lads kissed again. And set out for the cars on the run. H. L. G.

" Everett S. : " May 1 have one word with you? " Adra R. : " Just one. " Everett S.: " Date. " Miss Hall: " Vincent, you cause me more trouble than the other 299 students combined. " Clarence G. : " Some way I think more of a nickle than I used to. " Paul M.: " It is said that the night has a thousand eyes and I sure agree to it. " (We wonder why?) Bayard D. : " I have changed my mind. " Helen B. : " I didn ' t know it. There was such a small change. " Ernest J. (in restaurant) : " I would like some meat. " Waiter: " Will you have French or German mustard? " Ernest J.: " I am neutral, so I ' ll take horse radish. " (With apologies to Harold and Irene). Near the south side of the assembly. In the fifth and sixth seats back, or so. Is a happy pair of lovers That we each and all should know. O ' er her desk and books he hovers. So that no utterance is caug ' ht By the noisy bunch of students. Chatting o ' er the lesson taught. There they visit until the ringing Of the gong sounds o ' er the room; Then they part to meet next morning In this same assembly room. Teacher: " What is your name? " Robert P.: " They call me Bob, but my maiden name is Robert. Oh! How well do we remember That first and sad September. It was, Alas ' that in this school The Seniors thought we looked the fool. Said all the students, we looked so green It hurt their eyes for us to be seen. We gazed upon the teachers many. And their wise looks sure did envy. The next year we were Sophomores, And then we had our way more than before. The teachers gave us little marks. For we were fast becoming sharks. Then came the third year in this school. We were where the Juniors rule. It was then we had I ' ar more hope. For the faculty gave us a little more rope. The last year comes full in our face; We Seniors have reached our highest place. Now we are ready to make a request: May work never hinder our earned rest. But alas! it comes in the month of May, That long worked for and happy day When Prof. Smith will forgive us of our sins. And present to us our little sheep-skins. — ' 15. ADVICE BY EYER BE A RUBE Them as what can, seldom git canned.

" THE SLICKEK CLUB " A POME OUK HIGH SCHOOL This club is composed of High School boys and is noted for being the most energetic club of loafers east of the Pacific. They are great knowledge seekers, if no energy has to be ex- pended to get it. Real up-to-date subjects are discussed, such as: Teachers, girls, the pugil- istic world and who brought home the bacon in the last poker game. The club is also noted for their witty say- ings, for they have the latest line of " salve " which can be ohtained. They obtain these new and witty sayings from Witty ville (the in- habitants of this town are Hugh Byers, Walter Lister and Jetson Adams). They study the most classy and original works of literature since the time of Shakes- peare and Milton. They are regular subscrib- ers for " Life, " " Puck " and ' ' Judge. " The club is a patron of home industry. Dur- ing tlie past year it spent two hundred and seventy-five dollars in pool halls and cigar stores, and has also used up many cleaners and broom quills. The club meets every night there is a party in town. At these meetings they discuss the safest and easiest way to ob- tain the " eats. " The officers of the club are as follows: Supreme Exalted Ruler — Duer. Custodian — Monty. Inspectors — Burnell. Raymond. Firemen — Kelley, Starrett, Greenlief, Grieb- eling. Members paid up — Pickens, Morrison, Harp. Moochers — Lack of space for all the names. Chief Moocher of Makin ' s — Walter C. Pass Word — For the " eats. " Motto — Get everything you can without working for it. Emblem — Prince Albert ' s picture on red tin. The Freshmen and Sophomores are quite gay, ' p ' s ' ie ' iallv after church, (they say). For Aziel and Wilma, Helen and Jones Saunter in the moonlight to their homes. Miss F.: (in Phys. Geo.): " What is an icicle? " Aziel G. (slowly) : " A stiff piece of water.

Our High School is a flne old place. It ' s walls all of our pennants grace. There ' s nineteen seventeen upon the wall, But not eighteen until next fall. Looking down on us all I ' rom the front of the room. The teachers sit and pronounce our doom. At the end of each month we read our fate, And oftimes find we are good too late. On every morn at the sound of the gong Miss Hall appears before the throng, And soon she says, " The classes may pass, " And away goes each little lad and lass. We have our fights, our parties and fun. The boys learn to jump and also to run. But before all of these we must try our best To get a good mark in each monthly test. WE WONDER What will become of the joke department of " Newtonia " when Harold F. and Milton B. graduate. If Earl ever caught a Trout. If Helen has Vincent caught on her Hook.

One boy with the quickest of action Is mussing up somebody5s hair. While a girl in the greatest excitement Sticks her gum quickly under her chair. And just then the teacher steps in.

Speak Irom your folded papers. Miss Frazier or Arthur L. or Mildred W. (With apologies to Tipperary). Up to Newton High School Came a Freshman class one day. As the teachers were all kind and every one was gay; Shouting, teasing, those poor Freshies Thru the halls so fair, ' Till the Freshmen got excited and they cried out to them there: It ' s a long time ' till we are Seniors, It ' s a long time, we know; It ' s a long time ' till we are Seniors, And o ' er that fact you all crow. So we welcome all our studies. And say. Oh! we don ' t care. It ' s a long, long time till we are Seniors, But we ' ll sometime get there. " THE TIE THAT TillVDS Student: " Well, I er can ' t discuss that, because it enters into physiology, and I er ■ I. " Teacher: " Yes, yes, that ' s all right. I don ' t know anything about physiology, either. " Miss B.: " Change the metaphor, ' She ran like a deer, ' to a simile. " Walter F. : " She is a dear. " THE SENIOR PARTY An air of mystery filled the air At Newton High one day. The Seniors whispered here and there In a most mysterious way. " I wonder what is in the wind, " A Freshman did remarlt, " I ' ll bet there ' s something on tlieir mind; Suppose it is some lark. " But the Seniors vouclisafed no reply To the eager questions aslted, And held their peace as they passed by, Keeping their feelings masked. Next night a merry crowd was seen, Gathered round the Higli School door. No mischief making did it mean; A bob-ride and nothing more. No one their destination knew, But trusted to the guide, As swiftly o ' er the road they flew And enjoyed their first bob-ride. Before a country home they stopped; The jolly, lively class. Out of the bobs they quickly hopped, Each laddie and each lass. Within a festive scene appeared, With hearts and ribbons gay; The hearts of red, the rest we heard Of purple and white alway. Then each received a valentine, A heart and cupid, too. Each one a neatly written rhyme Conveyed a " slam " or two. Of course, they acted out charades Of lovers widely known. They quite forgot the poor old maids. But talent was much shown. At last the time came for the " eats, " Each given a half named heart. There followed many startling feats To find the other part. A pleasant evening, full of fun Was enjoyed by all of them. " It was a lark, " said every one; " No one could it condemn. " Next day a drowsy lot were they. But the teachers knew the source Of the stupor, and wrath could not stay; They gave five per cent, of course. The other students laughed to scorn Their enthusiastic tale, But " Jealous " was the answer borne, ' Till finally they wailed: " For pity sake, do keep it still Until we have ours too, We cry a truce and peace until We can outrival you. " One morning bright and early, » When the dew was on the ground, There came a sudden wailing, like the music of a hound; I paused in my work, for a moment To seek reason for the sound. And Lo! I saw a coming. The Quartette of the town. Inez Mc: " Why do you always cheer when a fellow gets hurt in a football game? " William R. : " So the girls can ' t hear what he is saying. " Miss F. (reading a Soph theme) : " If you al- ways put on one shoe first, it will soon become a habit. " The Sophomores hung in the study hall Their brand new pennants upon the east wall. And now the young owners are proud and gay, When they see their banners of Orange and Gray. Teacher: " What animal is satisfied with the least nourishment? " Francis M. : " The moth. " Teacher: " Why? " Francis M. : " It eats nothing but holes. " Teacher: " A preposition is a bad word to end a sentence with. " SOME REMARKS HEARD IN FRESHMAIV GIRLS ' CLOAK ROOM Said the first High School girl, With a short little scream: " I wish I could write That old monthly theme. " Said the next High School girl. With a queer sort of squirm: " Latin exams, for me At the end of the term. " The third High School girl answered With a great sigh of grief: " When my history lesson is over It is such a relief. " Said the fourth High School girl, Whose remarks were slighting: " I simply detest That arm movement writing. " The fifth High School girl added With a shy little smile: " I wish we laad short lessons. At least, once in a while. " " Now, see here, " said the teacher. Who was standing near by, " If you don ' t want to be failures. Just get busy and try. " There was a young Junior named Jean, Who was haughty and proud as a queen. When she met Bobby Pickens She said, " Oh, the Dickens! What in the world does this mean? " Verda H. (after a fight between Aziel and " Nibs " ) : " Is Aziel married? I see all the boys are congratulating him. " . . A little boy was running home with a (Trout) under his arm, but as he went to (Dodge) a (Hammer) he stepped on a (Ryan) and fell on his (K) nee (1), but when he saw a (Shepherd) a (Carpenter) and a (Miller) com- ing he jumped up and ran into the (Gharrett). Teacher (severely) : " What will your father say when he sees your low average? " Roy S.: " When he sees I ' m down to zero, he ' ll warm me up, 1 guess. " Mr. Mont.: " Why did Hannibal cross the Alps? " Fred M.: " For the same reason as the hen crosses the road. You don ' t catch me with any puzzles. " Mother: " Mozelle, you shouldn ' t believe more than half you hear. " Mozelle F. : " I know that, but how can I tell what half? " WOULDN ' T IT SEEM STRANGE 2 If the boys would sing on Friday afternoon? If the Freshmen were not green? If Myrtle K. didn ' t use long words? If Vincent R. would agree to anything?

If Wilma Van D. would actually walk? If all the boys got up to the assembly room on time? If Adra R. would change her name to Sabin? If Paul M. would have enough energy to be- gin on " French? " THE SOPHS The gayest hours of the Sophomores trip lightly by And leave no sorrows faintest traces But the deep, deep tracks that sorrow wears. Our school can always efface Two long years of experience taught we know, And can rightly judge the Freshmen small; Beyond courage, bravery and intelligence, For we are the class that never fall. We know our colors you all admire. For the Seniors have learned from experiences old: That bright and large our pennants are, For we are the Sophies as I have told. In basket ball games the Fresshmen we beat, Running the score so high, they sigh. And of our class records proud we are. For a warm place we have for our " Old High. " THE FABLE OF THE VINEGAR BOTTLT Once when Helen McQ. was twelve years old, she was attempting to drink water from an empty vinegar bottle. Having drained the last drop, she tried to squeeze the bottle. She swallowed and sucked until it was found that her tongue was attached to the mouth of the bottle, due to the vacuum created. She pulled and pushed, but could not detach the bottle from her tongue. Finding herself in a difficult position, for the first time in her career, she called her mother to have her remove the in- strument of torture. It was found the bottle should have to be broken to remove it. Her mother broke the bottle and set her tongue loose and it has wagged ever since.

" So they arrived at the firing line, Dusty, tired, but feeling fine. School is so dull each day, " This is quite a fine change, " said they. Bullets came thick and fast As they ate their cold breakfast. Lying in a cold, damp trench Instead of sitting on the school house bench. " And we ' ll leave our caps on the hooks. This beats devouring those old text books. " Suddenly they with a start awoke; Picked up their books and they broke Again for their classes and arrived Of five per cent to be deprived. Alas! their joy was only a dream. But how very real, it did seem. There dwelt in High School many folk, Who often the numerous rules broke. They tired of lessons they must get. And followed examples that idlers set. Some students their kind teachers mind. And all their Algebra and Latin find. Now, which of these will leave in May, And which behind their classes will stay? " Dear Miss H: — I am afraid .lohnny is not trying hard enough. Respectfully, Mr. H . " Miss Hall ' s Answer: — " I assure you that John is quite trying enough. The teachers all say he is the most trying boy in the class. " Talk about your trappers bold. Have you heard the story of " Tweet " Nelson told? The wind was blowing sixty per, When Tweet went out to gather fur. The wind was cold, the road was rough. Tweetie said, " It was just the stuff. " He tightened his belt and started west; Yes! old " Cherry Creek " would be the best. He had a hatchet and a skinnin ' knife. No! Tweet was not going to lose his lite. So with his traps and his twenty-two And some old " Star " on w hich to chew He picked up the trail at the " Overhead Bridge, " And followed it over the " Radion Ridge. " At " Lookout Hill " Tweet paused to rest; To try some " Star, " you know, the best. When Tweetie reached the Bottom land. He was so sick he could hardly stand. The things he saw were whirling round. And his balance he hardly found. He thought he saw a great, huge bear, And up the road he sure did tear. For three days in bed he lay. But never again did he go astray. Walter C. (to " Nibs " B.) : " I ' ll meet you at t he corner of the drug store. " Milton B.: " If one of us gets there late and the other isn ' t there, how will he know if the other has been there and gone, or if he hadn ' t come yet? " Walter C: " We ' ll fix that. If I get there first, I ' ll make a chalk mark on the sidewalk and if you get there first, you rub it out. " Fresh: " Say, what are you doing, Fleck; reading German? " Harold F. : " No, you poor fish. I ' m giving a potato bug a shampoo. " Prof.: " That young man ' s head will be worth something to him. " Willard R.

I judged they were Newton High School students by their funny clothes and queer shaped hats. The car was pretty full and they pushed and crowded in the aisle, tron.pin ' on people ' s feet. Bime by they all rared back and fetched loose a long yell. Then the one next tu me tuk a look and not admirin ' my face said: ' Well, my rural friend, don ' t you like it? ' ' Shore! I like it! ' says I. ' I am half witted myself. " There ' s a youth named Fleming, No doubt you know him well. All the teachers he ' s condemning, This lad, of whom I tell. Now, don ' t alone tliink That he loves to annoy. For he ' s really polite And a nice looking boy. Miss K. (in Com. Geo.): " What raw mater- ials are imported to our country?

His books he tightly clasps. Half under one small arm, But this surely cannot Do others any harm. It ' s woe to the person who meets him. For then it is not known vhether this be an earthly creature Or from lands elsewhere blown. Then soon he ' s up and doing. Prepared for other foes; He ' s sure to find a stumbling block, No matter where he goes. This gait he soon will alter As days and weeks go by. For every student knows this.

CASES Of all the cases we can name, They ' re such a funny lot, They all go round in one big mass; Some are, and some are not. You all know Bayard and Helen, A most peculiar case. Yet others would have tried themselves, 1l it hadn ' t been for the Chase. Dabby and Kate are a dandy pair, But my, they ' ve got it bad. Almost as bad as the one That Irene and Harry once had. And speaking of Irene Jasper: Just think of the hearts she ' s broke. There was Kinyon and Frank and Harry, And now Shorty ' s tied with the rope. And I wonder when Buck ' ll be married To little Florence Propp, you know. And Myra Thomas has made a catch. Look, girls! It ' s Senior Bob Woodrow. And that cute little Robert Pickens! Who ' d ever thought he ' d get a girl? And now that we ' ve started the story. Well, Pick thinks she ' s a pearl. And do you know I almost forget The very awfullest case. Just note that George and Zoa Should be listed in the race. And Everett still rushes Adra; Goes down every Sunday night. And we hear that Elise still Hans it to John, And he ' s getting over his fright. Young Monty ' s got a girl, they say, And Witmer had one once, Joy was also on the list. Ain ' t it awful to get bounced. It ' s rumored Paschal ' s joined the French, And no doubt will bravely fight. And Denny ' s getting there real fast; We hope that he gets out alright. And then there ' s young " Nibs " Burnell, He was popular in his day. But now h e ' s found the only girl. Just sits and dreams away. There ' s heaps of bachelor boys around, Harry, Roy and Frank and me, But we don ' t notice girls no more; We stand out as examples, see? Then there are just a few girls, too, Mostlj ' old maids, I guess. Who walk around the lower halls. Always looking their best. And maybe there ' s a few remaining. But they can be left out. Because no one else in High School Knows what they ' re about. But maybe we ' d better add Whitey, And Rudolph and Ernest Jones, too. And now that we ' ve earned our five per cent, I guess, gentle reader, we ' re thru. (Ernest J. and Clarence G., acting out Ham- let). Miss B.: " Give him the money, Ernest. " Ernest J.: " I haven ' t any. " OUR HIGH SCHOOL Looking backward o ' er life ' s pathway. Full of sorrows, smiles and tears, Brings to mind fond recollections Of the happiest years of years. Joys untold of honors won On the football field and track. Our minds sometimes revert to As we turn our memories back. And I ' m sure the class of fifteen Is full of pep and vim. They ' ll uphold the joys and honors; Like the rest, we ' re sure to win. The fiighty class of sixteen Is as noble as the rest. They too, have won great honors, And always do their best. While the childish Sophs and Freshies Still have time to win more fame. They are now beginning to show us . That they love the honored name. So when our labors here are ended. And we leave our dear Old High, May we leave a mighty record That will exalt us to the sky. Altho ' we talk quite " uppish " About our victories and defeats, We, in spite of most all else. Think we ' re pretty hard to beat. Seniors were Freshmen, O, so green, Many a year ago. With books so new they timidly flew Up from the grades below. And all the older ones stopped their play in that terrible, tiring entry day. And sat and laughed as they passed that way. To see them a-counting go. And sorely the studies were hard indeed. Many a year ago. For the poor little Freshmen so thin and meek. Up from the grades below. And sorely the Freshmen daily tried By ponies and answer books and much beside. To get some knowledge within their hide. So they to College might go. And ir this ditty of hardship be true. Many a year ago. Be kind to us, we beg of you. Up from the grades below. J- ' O, was there ever so bad a scare As when you entered the High School there. With faces so fair and beribboned hair? Up from the grades below. SPEAKING OF COMMENCEMENT DEFINITIONS ADVICE TO FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES Under the drooping arches An intelligent Senior stands, The Senior a real smart boy is he. With thin and delicate hands.

They say we ' re green, but we don ' t care; Next time we meet we ' ll get our share. The game, the game, we have the spirit. We worked and toiled, but never got near it.
