IH- Uhr Annuah- -15
WE, the class of nineteen sixteen, greet the High School with this book, the product of our
best efforts. We have tried to make it representative of every phase of our high school
life, and establish a record of the four years that we have so quickly and happily spent here. We
appreciate all that has been done to make this book a success and wish that in some way we
could repay you for any contribution or suggestion you may have given the striving editors.
We now leave you all and give our places on the eastern side of the Assembly Room, to
the rising '17 class for which we have tried to set an example of work, Cwith pleasure intermin-
gledl and loyalty to N. H. S.
N. H. S. has been very unfortunate this year in losing members of the Faculty. Six weeks
after the beginning of school our History teacher, Miss Alice Hughes, left us to become the
bride of Professor Dungan of Indianapolis.
Near the beginning of the second term the Professor of Science, Mr. O. I. Bandeen, left to
become Professor of Physics at the McKinley High School in St. Louis.
The most recent loss occurred when Mr. O. M. Walthall, teacher of Manual Training,
Botany and Agriculture yielded to the "Back to the Farm" germ and left us to engage in the
peaceful pursuits of plowing, planting, harvesting, etc.
We regret the fact that these teachers have left us, but our best wishes go with them wher-
ever they journey.
We can not publish the Annual without mentioning our appreciation of the artists who so
willingly and with such ability, made the cartoons for this book.
Harry Sturdevant needs due recognition for putting the essential humor and punch into
the book with his cartoons.
Albert Hull, of the '17 class, also very kindly and willingly contributed with several of his
We also Wish to mention Norris Cottingham of the '15 class, who made the Staff picture of
In all, we realize that our book was dependent upon these three, and so we extend a
hearty appreciation to all of them for their work.

As We come to the end of our High School life and prepare to leave the place where many
happy days were spent, it is with sadness We note the vacant places, and miss the companion-
ship of three of our classmates who entered here as freshmen, with us in 1912,
To the loving memory of
we dedicate this portion of our Year Book that their names may not be missing from the
1916 Class Roll, where they would have been if they had not:-
' "With a cheery smile and a Wave of the hand,
Wandered into an unknown land,
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since they linger there."

IT was a hot sultry day in July, that I started on my trip which later proved to be the most
pleasant occasion of my life. Just before boarding the train my attention was drawn to a man
by the name of Old Mose, who peddled his wares around in a cart drawn by an old balky don-
key. He made his living by selling a very curious little article known as Magic Glasses. Since
I was to be traveling for some time I purchased a pair of these mysterious glasses. Just then
my train came and I hurriedly put them in my purse and boarded the train. For afew hours
the people of the train furnished amusement for me, and then my thoughts came back to the
Magic Glasses. As the conductor was coming thru the car, I put my Glasses on and beheld to
my astonishment my old classmate Fred Roudebush, who had gained the honorable position
as conductor on the Lake Erie R. R. Our first stop was a very small village used as a milk
station,naturally I looked out of the window and who should I see but Margaret Hadley. I attrac-
ted her attention and after having a short conversation found out that she and her husband were
running a creamery. Just then the train pulled out. We soon reached Indianapolis. As I had
to stay over night I purchased a ticket and witnessed the Passing Show of 1923. In the first
tableau to my astonishment I saw Kathryn White posing as Maid of America. In the next
tableau entitled "Mamma's only Son" Roland Fisher played the leading role. After the show
I went to the Hotel and going to the desk to register I came face to face with Martin Hubbard who
told me that after his honeymoon, he purchased the hotel and if business kept up, he would soon
be a millionaire. Early the next morning I took a train for Chicago. I arrived there late in the
evening and after a pleasant night's rest I was ready to go sight seeing. I was advised to visit
Armour's Meat Packing House, after passing thru several departments I came to the stamping
room. I walked over to see one of the men and had the pleasure of meeting Albert Lacy who was
busily engaged in tagging Bacon, I soon found out that he had held this position since graduating
from Butler College. After going back to the Hotel I rang for a bell boy and who should appear
but Forest Hanna clothed in a bright red uniform trimmed in gold buttons. He told me he was
enjoying life immensely. After my short stay in Chicago I went to Bay View, Michigan, for a
weeks stay, I went to the Summer Hotel and enquired for a maid, I was certainly glad to have
one of my old N. H. S. friends, Lorena Reese, to fill the position. The next afternoon I went
down to the beach and my attention was attracted to a large green and white striped umbrella,
upon looking behind it who should I see but Loui G. Caylor writing Love Sonnets to Carolyn
Osbon who on inquiry I found was studying the Violin in Germany. As I was going to the
Hotel I noticed a very excited crowd gathering around the pier, I walked over to the scene of
excitement and found out that Dewey Bradley, the life guard, had just rescued the famous
novelist Mary Wild, from drowning. Before leaving the Lake I decided to get a Souvenir, and
on going over to the store I found Harry Rhoades managing a Souvenir and pawn shop. He
told me he was engaged in this work only in summer as the Lake climate benefited his health.
After leaving Bay View I went to New York. While on the road a slight accident happened, which
caused a delay of a few hours. Getting off of the train I noticed a small school house near by,
Page Twenty Eight
IH - Uhr Annual - IE
there were several children in the yard who seemed to beinterested in their teacher. On going
closer I found that Anna Dreher had reached the goal she had worked for, that of a country
school teacher. After conversing with her I found out that Gaynelle Catterson was happy in her
home in Lapel. The train whistled, we were all aboard for New York. Upon arriving at the
Union station I went up to purchase some candy and whom should I see but Mary Meara
and Lois Vaught who were gaining fame all over the world for their sea island taffy. Next to
the station I noticed a Movie Show and upon entering I saw a face which was familiar and upon
closer observance found out that it was Marguerite Johns who had gained the famous position as
pianist in the Powell picture show. During my stay in New York, I was invited to a party
and here I met several of my High School friends, among thezn being Joyce Paulsel,Gae Woddell,
Zilpha Randall and Goldah Roberts, who were gaining world wide reputation as actresses with
the Keystone Company. Before leaving New York I visited the Slums, and found Louise
Neal and Marie Little busily engaged in Charity work. On the same day I visited the Vernon
Castle dancing school, and found Bernice Lowther as one of the dancing teachers. From her
I learned that Blanche Kester had accepted the position as assistant in the school of Osteopathy
in Missouri. I also visited the Curtis Publishing Company, and here found Gray Truitt,Editor
in chief, and living the life of an old bachelor. At the Hotel, the evening before I left, I was
reading the paper and noticed the following, "Big Duel Scheduled," on reading further I found
that Robert Howe was to participate in a duel with Count Von Hamburg the next morning
over the possession of a famous English Bull Dog. I next took a trip on the Hudsong I stopped
at the Girls' Boarding School and was greeted by Mabel Wheeler, the Matron, and Martha
Cammack her assistant. I learned that Dorothy Hege and Frankie McCoun were taking
Music and Art and would graduate the next spring. I next turned my course toward South
America, on the Steamer I met Emmet Armstrong who was a traveling salesman for Bostonian
Shoes. Very much fatigued after my journey I went to the Hotel to rest up for my sight seeing
trip the next day. The next morning I started out in a Tourists Car. I visited the Cocoa-
nut Grove and there found Kathleen Thayer and her husband employed by the Government in
giving out pamplets on the culture of cocoanuts. We had a very delightful conversation and
found out that Kathleen had been there for quite a While. Suddenly the Car stopped and the
glasses fell from my eyes and the vision faded.

"Anna Lizer's Stumbling Block"
AN N ER Lizer had been invited to a real "fo suah 'nuf party". She had always longed to
go to a party. Many a time she had watched the gay crowds up at the "big house," with
wildly rolling orbs 5 hands and feet keeping time to the music. Many a time she pictured
herself as a dusky beauty, clad in green, yellow, orange, and purple 3 gayly circling the ball-room
floor in the arms of some adoring young cavalier. But dreams always have an end, and appar-
ently Anner Lizer's dreams had chosen to take flight. She wandered disconsolately down through
the gardens to the servant's quarters. Sinking down on the worn door step of their
humble cabin, she gave herself up to bitter musings.
The sun shown brightly down on the old Virginia plantation, the air was heavy with the
fragrance of roses and honey suckleg groups of little pickaninnies played about the various door
steps g birds called gayly to each other from the trees, but Anner Lizer heeded them not. Her
head sank down on her knees, and her body shook with bitter sobs welling up from her heart.
She lifted a woe-be-gone little face, "Tain't fair, so tain't, I ain't even got a blue haiah ribbon.
Oh, I do want a blue haiah ribbon so bad! Mos' all the cullud folk's'll be at that party all dress-
ed up fit to kill, an I ain't got a thing but that ol' plaid dress I've worn mos' all my life,-ain't
even got a blue haiah ribbon."
Mammy strolling down through the garden to her cabin, stopped and regarded her weep-
ing offspring with amazement. "Law's sakes, chile, What ye 'snufllin' about now?" Anner
Lizer lifted a countenance in which hope struggled with despair. "Cause I cain't go to that
party-I ain't got anything to weah." Here her accumulated woes reached a fountain head, and
once again she was overcome by sobs.
Mammy snorted with disgust. "Quit talkin' sech nonsence. Yo' clothes am plenty good
'nuf to weah to them good-fo'-nothin' doin's. Quit snufflin' now and eat yo' dinnahf'
Anner Lizer made a heroic effort to choke back the sobs that kept rising in her throat ,as
she sat down and partook of her humble meal of corn pone and baked potatoes.
Mammy had gone up to the big house to help prepare for a dance to be given that night
in honer of Miss "Jinny's" eighteenth birthday. It was to be a big occasion, and all the flower
of Virginia would be there. But of all others, Phil Allison held first place: first in wealth,
first in honor, and first in the heart of Miss Jenny. His present was among the first to arrive.
Miss Jenny opened the basket in great haste, in which, on a satin pillow, lay a beautiful big
Persian cat. Around its neck was tied a big blue silken scarf with tiny silver bells on the ends.
The beautiful creature had been fondled and squeezed until its flesh and bones ached.
Finally it escaped from the arms of its mistress and fled down stairs in undigniiied haste.
The cat walked slowly out and stretched himself comfortably on a pillow in the sunshine. A
robin flew down and began to sing near him. The robin certainly was fat and would taste very
good, no doubt, but then he was a pedigreed cat, and Mr. Phil had whispered something into
his ear at parting, which commanded him to act his best 5 so he lay and blinked sleepily at the
Page Forty Four
IH- Ihr Annuzrl g -IE
robin. But suddenly a soft little voice was heard calling him.-"Kitty, kitty, pretty kitty."
The voice was so pleading that he couldn't resist it. He got up and walked slowly to-
ward the hedge. A little black hand shot out and pulled him safely through and then he
found himself safely on the lap of a small dusky damsel. She stroked him gently and he arched
his back to her touch, purring softly as becomes a cat of his dignity Then she began slowly
to remove the blue ribbon. He was really glad, for the ribbon was hot and the constant jing-
ling of the bells worried him. The child disappeared through the gardens and the cat stalked
slowly back to the pillow.
Anner Lizer stood on a chair in front of the old cracked mir' or and viewed herself with
excitement She wore a pair of Miss "Jinny's" old white dancing slippers, Mammy's striped
stockings, the hated plaid dress, now beautiful in her eyes, for around her neck hung a strand
of enormous many colored glass beads, usually saved for funerals and other special occasions.
Around her head was wound a beautiful blue silk scarf, whose tiny silver bells tinkled musically
when she moved her head, which was incessantly. Taking her red, white and blue parasol
from behind the bureau, she sallied forth to the festive scene, amidst a flutter of blue ribbon and
tinkling bells. Enough to say that she was the belle of the afternoon and young Ajax quite
lost his heart to the haughty young beauty. That evening there was consternation up at the
"big house" for Mr. Bofiin, the Persian cat, was gone. The house had been searched from attic
to cellar, but he was not to be found and Miss "Jinny" was in hysterics.
Mammy, hurrying down to the cabin, saw seated in the doorway, Anner Lizer, now shorn
of all her glories, and in her arms slumbered a beautiful big Persian cat. Around his neck
was tied a blue scarf with tiny silver bells on the ends. The cat slumbered on, seemingly
content that he had brought joy to the heart of a child.

"Reminiscences of My Freshman Year"
STRANGE as it may seem, of my four years in the High School, the one that is really the
most remote and farthest away, stands out more vividly in my memory than either of the
succeeding years. Beginning with that first memorable day, it seems I can recall almost every
incident, from the tragedy of my nearest neighbor's fainting, to the most insignificant happen-
I can easily remember which seats I occupied that year Cand please don't infer from the
plural that I occupied more than one at a time.j At first I sat in the front seat with Goldah at my
side, our own selection it was too, because the teacher then, as some of the best do even now,
placed herself or himself at the rear of the room most of the time, or even at the desk we were
hardly noticed in that obscure corner. It was also to our advantage that we had the innocent
look of "Freshmanhood"on our placid countenances, so that the teachers would not form a bad
opinion of us at the start if they considered us worthy of their opinions.
But without realizing we had ever been discovered in our corner, we were being watched
Page Forty Five
15- g Ihr Annual -IE
in our innocent gambles, and I was rather unceremoniously ushered to the rear part of the room,
where I took up my abode. But with the length of the entire row of seats between us, Goldah
and I never failed to keep in touch with each other by means of that mysterious telegraphy
known best in the school room. '
It did not take me long to become acclimated to my new surroundings, namely, Carl
Randall, Martin Hubbard, Harry Rhoades, and avacant seat or two. I had feebly resolved
to do better when I moved back there, but if anyone could sit near Carl Randall and Martin
Hubbard and behave, he was ready for his crown and palm-leaf. About the only lessons I
ever did get were my Latin sentences, and I worked on those in order to have them ready to
"swap" for Carl's Algebra problems, if it had been so decreeded the day before, or if, as was
often the case, he was not favorably inclined towards his Algebra, I would bribe him to get
down and crawl on his hands and knees for our amusement. A time or two, I was judge in a
race between Martin and Carl down the aisle, in a like manner.
But a volume would scarcely hold all the events of that year, and it would require a larger
volume to contain in condensed form the lecturing our class received-mostly from teachers no
longer in our school world. These lectures, commonly called "speals" or "stringings" were
directed to us both collectively and individually, and so we will doubtless conclude we owe much
to those-our early instructors, for the good seed sown that resulted in the development of such
a well disciplined, unsurpassingly brilliant, exceptionaly obedient-in all, ideal class, as this our
class of '16.
UA Leap Year Proposal"
'Girlsl Do' it now!"
Elaine Vars, who had been drowsily glancing through the latest copy of "Fashions Friend"
-saw those startling words and concluded to read further to see what it was she must do.
This astonishing article urged girls to propose and cited several instances of very wealthy women
who had asked their husbands to marry them. Elaine had never heard of these women but
she concluded that they must be prominent, nevertheless. Mention was made of the proposal
of "Elaine" in Tennyson's "Lancelot and Elainenand "what was more maidenly than the frank
confession of her love?" The writer of this interesting selection declared that there would be
fewer divorces if Women proposed. He concluded by saying that many beautiful debutantes
had joined "Propose Before 1917" clubs and that every unmarried girl should pledge herself
to do the "sacred act" before the end of the year.
Elaine closed the magazine and began to study her own situation. During her high school
days, her family had been rather poor and she had had a hard time to complete that part of
her education. Then a very wealthy aunt had come along, taken a great fancy to Elaine,
discovered that the girl had a very beautiful voice, and since that time she had studied under
many famous teachers in order to become a wonderful singer. At last it seemed as if all her
hopes were to be realized but Elaine was not perfectly happy. When she had been a struggling
Page Forty Six

girl in high school, she had met Dudley Burdette and they had become great friends. Later,
however, he had gone away to college--she abroad, and they had not seen each other for several
years. A month ago,he had returned from the west and since that time he and Elaine had resumed
their old friendship. Now, however, Elaine realized that he was fast becoming more than a
friend but she felt positive he would never ask her to marry him, at least for several years.
His words had given her to understand that he could ask no girl of wealth, of such great pros-
pects for the future success, as she had, to marry a striving civil engineer, although he had every
opportunity for promotion.
Last week Elaine had received a proposal from Lord Edward Earlston. He had met her
while she was abroad and had followed her to America with the hope of making her his wife.
But Elaine had refused him for she knew that she did not love him and she had always declared
that she would not marry an Englishman with all his "hs" and "don't-you-knows."
"There's Sam Howard," Elaine said half aloud to herself. Sam was the pleasure loving
son of a millionaire and he had lately become infatuated with Elaine.
"But goodness-his mother," she added, "That settles him." "I may be his 'inspiration'
and his 'dream-girl' but I guess there wouldn't be much dreaming for me with that woman
around. If Dudley will not ask me to marry him, I'll do it myself-tonight. But what if he
would refuse! Oh dear! I'll go into a convent or become a nurse-but I hate sick people. I
might commit suicide-but even if that would make him repent it would be too late to do any
good. Well, Dudley is a gentleman anyway, and he certainly would be too polite to refuse-
and I think he really does care a little for me. I'm game." t
When Dudley Burdette arrived at the Vars' home that evening to take Elaine to his frat-
ernity dance, he found her very nervous and rather ill at ease. He wondered at this for she
was usually calm and self possessed.
"W hat makes you act so strangely, tonight, Elaine?" he asked.
Now was her chance to confess it all to him. Perhaps she would never have such an op-
"Oh, Dudley," she replied, her voice a little shaky, "I love-these flowers you sent me.
They are beautiful."
Her tongue had refused to obey her, Dudley looked at her a little surprised but said nothing.
In the machine, on their way to the dance, Elaine was very silent, all her thoughts oc-
cupied with what she had planned and failed once to do. The magazine had said, "tell him in a
a straightforward way that you love him."
"Goodness," she thought, "I would much rather have written that article than be trying
to practice what it preaches. But I must have courage-courage!" All the way the words
rang in her ears and mocked her.
Suddenly Elaine said defiantly, "Dudley, will you-pick up my gloves, please?"
Was her tongue bewitched? Twice it had refused to obey.
At last they reached the dance and in her enjoyment of the evening's gaieties, Elaine
almost forgot what she had determined to do that night. The dance was nearly over and
Page Forty Seven
IH- Ihr Annual - IE
Dudley had come to claim her as his partner for the Fox Trot, when suddenly it all flashed upon
"Let us sit out this dance," she said.
They made their way to a corner of the balcony outside, which was hidden by luxuriant
palms, from the other couples who were also resting from dancing.
What a perfect night it was! Below myriads of brilliantly colored Japanese lanterns
made the scene like fairyland. The many beautiful women, strolling beneath these lanterns
made it all doubly enchanting. The fragrant odor of roses and honey-suckle wafted to them
from the nearby trellis, while sweet music floated out from the ball-room. Over it all fell the
"Dudley," said Elaine, breaking the silence during which they had both stood, awed by
the beauty of the scene. "If a girl loved a man and he would not ask her to marry him because
she was wealthy and he was-not-would it be terrible-if she asked him? I have-a dear friend
fwho loves a man and he just will not propose. She cares so much for him and he is a civil-
I mean a lawyer-and-and-what would you do?"
"In this case," said Dudley, "I believe I would marry the girl."
To her surprise Elaine found herself in his arms and she was almost in tears.
"But I was going to propose. How did you guess whom I meant?"
Dudley smiled, "I didn't guess it. You were just so slow I couldn't wait."

Right and let our foes defy.
Courageous in the things we do
Loyally remain true blue.

But hoary Time thy mem'ry sublime can ne'er efface,
For thou art dearer, ever-nearer to me now.

To the class of 1916 Greeting 5
As a member of the class of 1910, I extend to this Senior Class of Noblesville High School

To the members of 1916.
You are graduating in a notable year of Indiana's History, the Centennial year. This year
all over the state, its citizens will honor the pioneer who built this commonwealth, we honor
them because they were God-fearing men and women. No other kind could have founded a state

With our small advantage of a few years experience in practical life, may We call your at-
tention to the following quotation.
"lt is moral courage that characterizes the highest order of manhood and Womanhood the
courage to seek and speak the truth, the courage to be just 5 the courage to be honest: the courage
to resist temptation, the courage to do ones duty."
In behalf of the class of 1902 I congratulate you in your present achievment and Welcome
you as a member of the Alumni.
May your efforts be your best, in the uplift and betterment of mankind in the larger life
that you will live.
Jean Clark, 1902.
To the class of 1916 Greeting:
The world is in greater need of real men and women today than ever before. Honest,
honorable, practical men and women who are ambitious to serve and fill it well, have faith. Be-
lieve you can do a thing and back that belief up with a determined will, and success is yours.
To doubt, is to invite failure. Use all obstacles as stepping stones to a higher plane of useful-
ness. Success or failure lies wholly with you.
Your lives will be molded by your thoughts, the books you read and your associates.
Think noble thoughts if you would do noble deeds for "As a man thinketh, so is he."
"Sow a thought and reap an act,
Sow an act and reap a habit,
Sow a habit and reap a character,
Sow a character and reap a destiny."

Greeting, N. H. S.
Your alumni Editor's letter came to me at a most busy time, but I am snatching a few
minutes this evening to make a reply. Perhaps if you knew this was the end of our first semes-
ter you would understand why I say busy.
Here in M. H.S. we have three finals before the close of the semester in order that all re-
ports, cards, registers, files, old programs, new programs, and many other kinds of records may
be properly made, transferred, transcribed, remade and returned for the beginning of the new
term. A big school has much system and lots of red tape, but ours is an interesting place, and
I enjoy being a part of its system.
I'll not begin to tell you of the many unusual attractions of Madison, for I'm sure your Ed-
itor wants a short letter. The lakes and the University are doubtless the biggest things in
Madison, nearly five thousand students are now enrolled at the "U" almost as many as there
Page Fifty One
19- Ihr Annual - IE
are people living in Noblesville. Three lakes with their shores give people unexcelled op-
portunity for living by the lake the year 'round. But I can't omit mentioning the Capitol with
its famous dome, and its Paintings, or the State Historical Library with its equally interest-
ing architecture. These buildings are almost as much talked of as the Congressional Library.
The lakes afford wonderful sport both in winter and in summer. Before snow came,
hundreds of people were on the lakes skating every day. Saturdays and Sundays the ice was
dotted from shore to shore with groups of these moving black specks, the skaters. During the
holidays, eighteen hundred pairs of skates were sold in Madison. Even I caught the fever
when I returned, borrowed a pair of skates, and went down to Lake Mendota last Saturday
afternoon. After an hour's effort I had learned to sit without falling, and to stand
without wobbling. The City Council is now having the snow scraped from the lagoons, so
that the sport may be continued. Sail skating, ice boating, toboggan sliding, coasting, and
skiing are other winter sports. The sail boats look like in'ntense birds careering gracefully
along on the surface of the ice. With a good wind, an expert easily goes sixty miles an hour 5
and frequently eighty or a hundred. High School boys frequently build their own iceboats, by
making runners for their boats and then attaching sails. Horse racing on ice is a winter at-
traction. These races have always been on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, an incon-
venient time for my attendence.
Occasionally, however, some of our High School boys slip away to go, then return the next
morning and give "Headache" or "Sorethroat" as the ailment. By making inquiry into these
frequent "sick" leaves, of one of my students, I learned of this horse racing by ice. The
next morning when he tried to write "sick" on his excuse blank the joke took a turn. Now we
have a keen system for these jokers. Each morning as soon as the absentees are reported the
Principal's private secretary calls by telephone to inquire about each of these students. This
is such a welcome personal interest it is appreciated.
N. H. S. boys and girls, what kind of English records are you making? Do you welcome
theme writing? Do you love your "Mother tongue" so well that you welcome every opportunity
for careful improvement? So many people seldom say what they mean or mean what they say.
Do you? Do you know why? Your vocabularies are poverty stricken. Increase your
range. Learn to use one new word every day. Soon you will learn to love the English lan-
guage, and will find the game of using new words interesting sport.
Miss Alumni Editor, I couldn't omit this last paragraph. You see the letter would not be
like me, if I didn't give you all a short lecture before the finish. Some of the N. H. S. former
Alumni will vouch for this characteristic.
With best wishes for the prosperity of the school, and the development of an ideal school
spirit, I am
Very sincerely yours,
Odessa Zeis. 1897.
To the class off1916 Greeting:
As a member of the class of 1896 it is with bravery I bridge the chasm of years, and "bid
thee welcome." Many good wishes, have I for your future. Sincerely yours,

Friends of the class of 1916.
Again it is the pleasure of the writer, this time as a class representative of N. H. S. to extend
a sincere and cordial welcome into the ranks of our high school association of graduates, of which
you will soon be members. You have practically finished the prescribed course of study as
set forth by the Board of Education and are now ready to apply the principles learned in the
school room, to the affairs of every day life in a finished and efficient manner. It has been truly
said that our school days are the ones where we eat our honey and white bread and the time in
your period of life now confronts you which if you have utilized well the time for that state of
preparedness that makes our later life a continued pleasure as we review through the medium
of our memory the things accomplished in a thorough manner. Learn well the fundamental
principles of life, and form pleasant friendship ties in both your business and social relations
and when you reach that river which marks the unknown shore may your lives be filled with
deeds of charity and kind acts to your fellow creatures, the golden keys which ope' the
palace of eternity. Omar G. Patterson

Dear class of 1916.
It is with the greatest pleasure that I am permitted to send greetings to you, so many of
your number are my old pupils, and I say with sincerity that I wish you all the success and happi-
ness possible, as you journey through life. Let your aims and your ideals be always of the high-
est character. Very truly,

Many good wishes to the dear young people of 1916. You will always have cause for re-
joicing that you have made this effort, and each year of your life will add new reasons for thank-
fulness that you possess the quality of perseverance to push ahead, and no doubt this quality
is indicative of your future. We greet you. Mrs. George S. Christian.

A remarkable class was '88
I'm sure you'll all agree
And I am happy to relate
Just how it came to be.
Two boys, eight girls had '88
A' colored maid was one
First in our school to graduate
But soon her "race was run."
This little band of ?88
Was blessed with friends galore
So many came on that great date
They had to close the door.
Then to this class of '88
Went forth this edict rare
"Another night you must orate
Your laurel wreaths to wear."
Once more the obedient '88
Appeared before the town
The weight of knowledge proves so great
The stage came tumbling down.
But nothing daunted '88
So full of joy and fun
Went out in life to meet their fate
With "Sheep-Skins" fairly won.
This motto had old '88
"No one is wise alone"
To prove this true each took a mate
But one-Her heart was stone.
And now a toast to '88
To dear old days gone by
Tho' "Tempus Fugit" the Romans state
Hearts ne'er grow old-say- I.

To the Annual:
As a member of the class of '85, I greet the class of 1916. Thirty one years is a long time
and I am glad to see the same high aims and resolutions in the present class that have inspired
the various classes of the Noblesville High School for that long period of time. You have had
greater advantages than were accorded the class of 1885, and l am quite sure you have appre-
ciated them. I am sure you will all make good citizens, and that you will hold the banner of
old N. H. S. in the fore front of life's battle line. Our High School has reason to be proud of
the record made by its graduates 5 surely the class of 1916 will strive to emulate the many who
have been graduated from year to year in the past. Accept this greeting from an old graduate,
whose chief delight is to be a friend to those who are receiving their diplomas from our Alma
The class of '83 has given its Welcome to every graduate from N. H. S. for the past thirty-
three years and to no class more sincerely and kindly than to the class of 1916.
Thirty-three years make a long time but they only soften and tender the feelings of the
true alumnus toward the old school and toward every graduate. This feeling is akin to the
spirit of the old soldiers who see the new recruits enter the ranks and ready to move forward
The battle is on-there is good fighting all along the line-fall in, class of 1916 and be
worthy of the school which has honored you with its approval as fit soldiers in the battle of life.
Class of 1883.
Yes, we come to bring you greetings,
From the days so long gone by 9
When we think of a class meeting,
For the days of yore we sigh.
Days when youth and joy held sway,
Happy with our mates and books:
Whether it were toil or play,
O, how oft one backward looks.
Now, so scattered is our number,
Different walks of life we've trod:
Some have found the restful slumber,
And are now at home with God.
Dear young friends, for you we ask-
Joy and honor, love and truth:
As the years complete each task, Ella Griffin
May your hearts, retain their youth. Class of 1880.

Oh thou dost bid thy friend farewell,
But for one night, though that farewell may be,
Press thou his hand in thine.
How canst thou tell how far from thee
Fate or caprice may lead his steps 'ere that tomorrow comes?
Men have been known to lightly turn the corner of a street,
And days have grown to months, and months to lagging years,
Ere they have looked in loving eyes again.
Parting at best is underlaid
With tears and pain,
Therefore, lest sudden death should come between,
Or time, or distant, clasp with pressure firm
The hand of him who goeth forth,
Unseen, Fate goeth too.
Yes, find thou always time to say some earnest word
Between the idle talk,
Lest with thee hence forth,
Night and day regret shall walk.

"TI-IE BLOSSOMING OF MARY ANNE"
GN the evening of March 10th the curtain of the Wild Opera House rose on one of the most
successful of Senior class Iplays, 'fThe Blossoming of Mary Anne." The scenes were laid, C15
in the sitting room of the Simmon's home in Farmdaleg C25 a room in Mrs Kirkland's New
York home, C33 an ante-room in Elaine J ewett's home in New York, and the last scene was the
same as the iirst at Farmdale.
The story had to do with the love affairs of Mary Anne Simmons, a beautiful little country
girl, and William Barkeley, a city boy. The boy went away to college and forgot his country
sweetheart-but by the help of Mary Anne's wealthy aunt, Mrs. Kirkland, they are reunited
and everything ends happily.
Miss Kathryn White, who took the part of the little country girl, Mary Anne, displayed
much ability. Her acting was especially clever and she captivated the audience with her charm-
The character of William Barkeley was skillfully taken by Mr. Albert Lacy. He repre-
sented the most pleasing type of a young college man.
Miss Anna Dreher, playing the part of Elaine J ewett, a society girl,tried by endless schemes
to win the love of Mr. Barkeley. However all intricacies of the villainous to capture her prize
failed, as they always do in romance. Miss Dreher needs to be complimented highly, for she
played this part charmingly.
Miss Gaynelle Catterson, as Trella the invalid sister, needs due recognition. The part
of this sweet and patient sick girl was effectively played by Miss Catterson in her appealing way.
Miss Kathleen Thayer was very good as Patsy Cloverleaf, a young girl who was greatly
interested in the whirl of society.
Miss Mary Wild, who took the part of Mrs. Simmons the mother of Mary Anne, was
IH- Uhr Annual -15
typical in the part of the kind hearted and hospitable country woman. She played this part
with much ease, always ready with those speeches which make this kind of a part humorous.
Miss Louise Neal did exceptionally Well in the portrayal of Miss Slissy, the gossiping old
spinster and dressmaker of Farmdale. Her make up as as old maid with her sleek hair, face
curls, tight jacket and little hat was indeed clever.
Betsy Scroggins, the slip-shod young servant girl, slow spoken and countrified, who was
ever thinking about and looking for the "hired man," caused the house to be taken by storm of
applause when she entered disheveled and Wet, having ducked the hired man in the rain barrel
in order to get him to promise to marry her. This part was successfully played by Miss Blanche
Messrs. Gray Truitt and Dewey Bradley, as fraternity men, played their parts in a most
gracious manner, being ready at any minute to escort some fair young lady-whenever she might
glance their way.
Mr. Harry Rhoades, as Teddy Farnum, was very much of the society type. He was quite
humorous in the comedy character he took, being frivolous and a great heart smasher.
Miss Mabel Wheeler in the role of Mrs. Kirkland, Mary Anne's wealthy New York aunt,
aided Cupid in shooting his arrows at Mr. Barkeley and Mary Anne, after their long separation,
by taking her niece to an eastern metropolis where she Was given all the advantages of an ed-
ucation and the infiuences of higher society. On the evening of Mary Anne's debutante ball,
she appeared lovlier than ever to Mr. Barkeley, and he realized she was no more the plain little
country girl-but a beautiful and polished young lady. Much praise is due Miss Wheeler for
the efficient way in which she carried out her part as the society lady, and to Miss Goldah Roberts
who so ably took the part of Mrs. Kirkland's maid.
Miss Welling, an English instructor of the High School, spent much time in coaching and
staging the play. She was untiring in her efforts and it was because of her work, largely, that
the play was a success. To her, and Miss Vera Bowan of Greencastle, who did so much for the
play, we seniors owe our thanks, as cheerful and efficient workers.

interesting talk on "Roman Saturnalia", which was appropriate to this season of the year,
meaning Roman Christmas. A number of selections on the Victrola were enjoyed and later

ing" here under the direction of Mrs. Alison, an assistant of Rev. Mr. J ones. Our first
meeting was held in the Presbyterian Church. The plan of work was discussed, the yearly
officers and an advisory board were appointed. After this our meetings were held in the Public
Our club receives its name from Clara Laughlin's book. "Everybody's Lonesome." A
copy of this book has been placed in the Library for the use of the members and the public.
We later adopted a constitution. Our flower is the carnationg our color, true blueg our watch-
word, "Othersg" and our motto, "Let all that ye do be done in Love," The purpose in organ-
izing was to promote sociability, fellowship, and to study the Bible.
At the beginning of this school year the following officers were selected:

and Martha Crawford.
Last year the Everybody's Lonesome Club gave a scholarship to a Philipino girl at the

The members of the Club feel that their time devoted to it in the last two years has been
well spent. In behalf of the organization, we wish to thank everyone who has helped in making
the club a success. Margaret Hadley, Pres.

NOBLESVILLE High School Was represented by a foot-ball team this year for the first
time since the disastrous season of 1910. Altho the team was not successful in one way,
that is, in Winning games, We think that they were successful in reviving the interest of the
students of Noblesville High School in a sport which helps to produce stronger and better men
for all the different athletic enterprises, in which representatives from this school participate.
We sincerely hope that the boys Will not be discouraged by their defeats, but will Work for a
stronger and better team next year, one which Will be a Winner.
The players Who composed the football squad Were: Capt. Albert Hull, Lacy, Hubbard,
Bradley, Howe, Hanna, Malott, Harry Hull, Powell, Clover, Sumner, Stevenson and Kemp.

The following boys composed the basket-ball squad :-From Left to right, Hanna, Bradley,
H. Hull, Clover, A. Hull, Hubbard, Caylor. E. Stevenson and Raymond Powell who do not
appear in the picture.
HIS year we started the basket ball season hoping that the team would be more successful
than last year's team, but before long we saw that we were doomed to disappointment.
In the first place we did not succeed in getting a floor on which to play in Noblesville. This
was a decided disadvantage. Another thing which contributed to our failure was the lack of
interest among the students. As far as material for a good team is concerned, Noblesville has
plenty of good material, but the interest in basket ball is not great enough to cause the boys to
try for the team.
The main thing which Noblesville High School needs,in order that we may develop a good

basket ball team, is a good gymnasium. If the people of Noblesville Would only take a little
more interest in the affairs of the school and would build a gymnasium, there is no reason Why
this school should not put out a winning basket ball team, but as long as no place is obtainable
in which to practice and play, We had better drop basket ball altogether rather than play and lose
every game played.
The results of the following games show plainly the failure of our team to win games from
teams which by every right, ought to and could have been Won if We had had an available
place in Noblesville in which to play:

tween Westfield, Shortridge and Noblesville, and was held in the Y. M. C. A. building. We
succeeded in getting second place in the meet with a total of 175 points. Some of the boys
did very well in this meet showing that we have a chance to develop a winning track team.
N. H. S. DEFEATS CARMEL
SATURDAY, April 15, the Noblesville Track Team defeated the Carmel High School boys in

up for the defeat which our track team suffered at the hands of the Carmel boys last year.

More records were broken this year than ever before in
a county meet. The records broken were: 100 yard dash,
220 yard dash, half mile, mile run, pole vault, high jump, shot

expected to do. A
Our coaches, M. Sharpe and Paul Walton, a former star
of N. H. S. did a very good work in developing the team into

their orator. Yells and songs were given by the different schools before the curtain rose and
during the intermissions.
There were nine speakers for the evening,-first place being given to Russell Tomlinson of
Cicero. Martin Hubbard was the speaker for our school and he is to be complimented highly
on the fine manner in which he delivered his oration "Eulogy on Lafayette." Much praise is
also due Miss Stone for her proficient Work in so ably coaching Martin.
MUNICIPAL HOME RULE DISCUSSIONS. ,
State High School Discussion League was organized in 1913 for the purpose of encourag-
ing young men and women to study civic questions of interest, and to help train them in
analysis, logic and platform speaking.
The question this year for discussion all over the state was Municipal Home Rule. A
local contest was held at Noblesville on March Sth. and Ruth Fariss was selected as Nobles-
v1lle's representative in a county contest to be held April 6th.
The subject of Municipal "Home Rule" Was discussed in a very intelligent manner, Thurs-

day evening April 6th, at the High School. The speakers were Ruth Fariss, of Noblesville, and
Clifford Illyes, of Atlanta. The former received first place. Each speaker argued for muni-
cipal home rule. No other schools in the county sent representatives to the contest. Miss
Fariss received a bronze medal for the prize, and our high school is very proud of her over the
A citizen of Indianapolis, who is much interested in public discussion Work, is paying for
all the prizes in the state. Bronze medals are given to county Winners, ten dollar gold pieces
to the successful contestants in the districts and a gold medal to the state champion.
Music was furnished during the evening by the High School orchestra, and a violin solo
by Miss Carolyn Osbon Was appreciated by the audience. The judges Were: County Superin-
tendent J. F. Haines, Wood Unger of Tipton and Ralph Waltz of Arcadia.
