I, the spirit of North Central, thereupon did declare unto the soothsayer, Merlin, that I desired before heaven and earth, to see the people, nay, the dignitaries with whom I held session and audience in the best years of my life. Little did I believe that shortly would appear before me the august personnel of the class of January 1922. "I grant thee thy wish," quoth Merlin. Thereupon, in a procession of state, there reviewed before mine eyes, the members of the class of january 1922. Professor Zell Spry lead, in dignified pro- cession, his stalf of spinsterly "school marms," his fiery locks almost cancealed by his enor- mous, entirely dignified bone-rimmed glasses, rented from W. J. Sanders for the period of his, Mr. Spry's, contract of principalship at the Hillyard high school. The worthy profes- sor's staff was found to include Misses Myrile Sheets, Wilma Maycumber, Mildred Quam, Dorothy Wurhman, Alice McKay, Arlowene Riggin, Luella De Witz and Minnie Toms. Harold Berven was with them as he-is athletic coach at Hillyard. Then, singing as if their hearts would break and as though their voices had already broken, danced Audrey Smith and Dorothy Jennings, famous vaudeville vamps. Following close upon their heels, Myron Bostwick, Donald Morissey, David Auld, Mil- ton Steiner and Morgan Allen tramped, clothed in overalls, grease and grime that mark out the successful ones in engineering. Then, I beheld the three famous surgeons, Ivan Hamrnitt, Harold W. Bigger and Clair- mont Seikerman in earnest consultation over a sick cat with Sarah Lowry as Special nurse. Miss Bergete Maydahl was taking dictation from Harvey Brassard for whom she is pri- vate secretary in his wholesale slam establish- ment. She is at the head of the list of stenog- raphers including Cecil Skinner, May Miner, Irma jones, Gwendole McKay, Gladys Buss, Isabel Henry and Zona Hubbell. Clerking in the same establishment were Misses Erma Koentopp, Marjorie McConahey and Lorraine Preston. Next, a scene came to my eyes which start- led me but brought back the old days in room 305. Before me, I saw O'Leighton Bailey who had been unanimously elected to the posi- tion of managing the hot air furnace for Me- phistopheles. Gthers who had contracted with his excellency for furnace work because of misdemeanor at North Central were Ralph Olsen, Donald Miller, William Hunter and James Symonds. Israel Miller passed earnestly engaged with Mr. Salzmann, whom, he declared, he was en- deavoring to teach Spanish, but Whom, it was rumored by Helen Straub, the next in line, he was in reality trying to instruct in ancient He- brew or American slang, which one she could not tell. Roy Clark, Homer Skidmore and Dale Van de VValker rollicked by with their saws and axes, floating their "Saw Log Degrees." Ruth Hamlin mothered a group of small orphaned Samoans, for she is a matron in a Samoan orphan asylum. Careening by on a bucking broncho, rode Neita Arrowsmith, cowgirl from Colorado. Irving Anschutz strutted by next escorting Misses Kathleen Riley, Helen Honefenger and Hazel johnson, and a chorus including Ber- 'nice Witt, Ruth Wollmuth, Marjorie Kitto, Isabel Roberts, Lucile Edgington, Margaret Acker and Elizabeth Poole, followed by Vic- tor Miller, stage manager. It seemed that Ir- ving Anschutz had at first started as a weather man but his predictions seemed to fit any cli- mate better than the one he was predicting for he was kindly asked to resign. Thus, we fnd him at the head of a musical comedy show. Then came Harley Olson, champion heavy-- weight, accompanied by his sparring partner, Jay Isham, and Eddie Rule, his manager. Following this came a long line including C NORTHERN LIGHT 21 Verne Cunningham and Zella Jacobson, vaude- ville swimmersg Aileen Linney, teacher of ad- vanced expression, Clara Wilkerson, suffra- getteg Mary Porter, gym teacher, Helen Carlson, costume designer, Beulah Parrill, United States senator, and La Nor Hester, second Theda Bara. Harold Harding was extracting teeth pain- fully painlessly. Ingram Coon was still going to Waterloo, while Louie Ashlock and Walton Hone care- fully sleuthed for their master, the famous comedian, Fred Marshall. Thus they passed, followed by Winnifred Copson, Luella De Witz, Mildred Lively, Gar- net McGowan, Florence McCulloch, Netie Russel and Elizabeth Walters, cooks and wait- resses at the "Little Brickf' rival of Daven- ports. Margaret Slater and Evelyn Sellars, great Paderewskiettes, followed Edith Freeborg and Virginia Frost, the world-famed Latin Pro- fessorettes. Thomas Doran lead the famous Schooley's Funeral orchestra and Robert Zimmerman and Wesley Robson had succeded at the bar and defied anyone to defy their championship at handling the crowbar. Kenneth Bush passed by jingling a few of Rockerfeller's billions. He is John D.'s Hnan- cial secretary. Pauline Crowder is her boss's pet now just as she used to be teacher's pet back in 1922, true to the prediction of Helen Russum, Borneo style hairdresser. Anna Brown, Mabel Carstens and Hannah Clark are engaged as 'teachers in a make-your- self-be-seen-and-not-heard school. Then contrary to my expectations came Ad- eline Allen and Elizabeth Green who had be- come milk maids but since automatic milkers came in they have been out of work. Kellogg Finley and Harry Meyers were horse-shoers in a Ford garage. Behold, Thomas Baird, Randall Cowel, and Louis Hodgins who have completed a four year post-graduate course in order to become a salesman for a gasolene service station at Mead, ably assisted by Herndon McKay and Loran Shaw, specialists in mechanical oddities. Signed, this fifteenth day of January in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and thirty- six. THE SPIRIT OF NORTH CENTRAL. PAULIN E CROWDER AUDREY SMITH In witness hereof, l MEMORY Virginia Frost We leave thee, dear North Central, Go forging on alone Without thy ever-helping hand- I,ife's hardships all unknown. What though fleet time may hasten on, As pain and strife we bear, The mist of years may fade away And leave the sunshine there. The sunshine of our joyous youth, All happy and carefree, So, of the past We'll think once more, And dream, dear school, of thee. 22 NORTHERN LIGHT CLASS HISTGRY PLANET MARS DAILY PAPER Twenty-second Century Tuesday Morning Great Upheaval On the Earth!! U. S. in Utter Destruction Millions of Lives Lost!!! " S MR. FUTURE, a famous evolutionist and geologist of the planet "Mars," read these start- 0 ling headlines in the' morning 4 n news he was quite thrilled. To him it looked like the opportu- the earth? There he would have not take his airplane and ily to nity of his life. For could he an excellent chance, in search- ing among the ruins, to prove his recent state- ments concerning geology, and above all to prove his statement that the people of the earth are reincarnated in Mars. The following month, therefore, found Mr. Future on the famous planet "Earth" in the vicinity of the Cascade Mountains. Ten years of endeavor found the so-called genius with no proof as yet. But one day he stumbled on a large high school library. Searching among its ruins, he found some weather-beaten vol- umes. His eye was instantly caught by the illuminating letters of a tiny red leather maga- zine, which read: p "NORTHERN LIGHT" Something in this title made his v'ery being shudder for it brought up repressed memories from his subconscious mind! He opened the book largely from curiosity. This is what he read: "In the year l9lS a band of roving boys and girls started on a dangerous journey over mountain and plain to seek the valley of know- ledge and success. Indeed, this was a great undertaking for had it not always involved four years of struggle by former adventurers? "Mount Freshman, the first obstacle which they were required to scale, proved very diffi- cult for the band was timid and frightened. Some of the unfortunate ones were even tossed into chasms of despondeney by such frightful FE? monsters as Latin and ancient history. Others by the aid of ponies and guides successfully gained the other side of the mountain. 'KMount Sophomore proved less difficult. More team work was displayed for after a rousing conference they chose a guide. The one bright spot which illuminated the second year's task was a party at the home of one of the members of the band. There arose in this year several leaders who were indispensable to the class. These leaders held down the ropes to enable the weaker ones to get over the steep precipices. Ujunior Mount proved less formidable be- cause its sides were not very rocky. However, dreadful storms of tests soon overtook the travellers. These were followed by showers of destructive grades. Those, however, who were allowed to continue the journey came up- on such a beautiful lake that they decided to hold by its banks a day of merry-making. They named it Newman Lake. "Soon after this Senior Mount loomed high above them. The rovers were so enthusiastic that they undertook it with great courage. As a result of their enthusiasm there was an out- burst in such lines as art, athletics, music and dramatics. Another picnic was enjoyed at Medical Lake. "After this event the exciting and thrilling part of the climbing began. A gorgeous ban- quet given by the Senior B's, an exceptional class play, a baccalaureate sermon, and the commencement exercises, brought the band to the summit of Senior Mount. From there they could see stretching out before them the great valley of knowledge and success." Signed: EVELYN SELLARS HELEN RUSSUM Mr. Future was in ectasies!

Although the demise of so great a class should have been a solemn and sad affair, everyone seemed so full of spirits fthe kind that come from the soul and not from the bootleggerj that even Harvey Adolph Bras- sard forgot to give anybody the "razz" or makelany of his famous "spellbounding" ora- tions. Even the elk heads which decorated the walls of the banquet room wore smiles, probably because they remembered the time when they, too, were happy little deers. Harley Olson was the first senior to arrive on the scene and he promptly took possession of two chairs and a half. Mr. Olson was greatly grieved when the head waiter forced him to give up one chair and a half to R. Irving Anschutz and his diminutive friend and chaperone, Miss Lucille Edgington. During the rest of the evening the position of our friend, Mr. Olson, greatly resembled the famous balancing rock. Owing to the fact that the hay wire with which Fred Marshall was pulling a certain Ford did not break, Orlen Bailey arrived be- fore the banquet started. The calendar was forthwith decorated with a red mark, as this was the first time that the Ford and its occu- pants had ever arrived on time. Last to -arrive was our popular Doris Aileen, bringing with her the handsome young North Central News society editor, Louie Ashlock. Now, if ever, the banquet could start, for the mighty deeds which were to be done that night would not go unchronicled. By this time the bevy or so of waiters had managed to distribute the first course among the famished seniors, who had gone without their lunches for the last two weeks in order to do justice to the occasion. The first course, which consisted of soup a la carte, was con- sumed to the strains of Flower's orchestra. Mr. Flower afterwards admitted that he saw no need of the seniors hiring an orchestra, as the "soup yodelers" more than drowned out the melodies rendered by his corsage. The management felt that it was unnecessary to throw Mr. Flower any bouquets. '23 Mr. Patton, in a very brilliant speech, wel- comed the senior Afs. He made but one stipu- lation, and that was that the senior A's please refrain from carrying away the silverware, as all missing articles would be charged to the senior B class. Such a charge would be a great calamity, as the class pocketbook already was invisible from a side view. This state- ment put a damper on the spirits of Kenneth Bush and Lewis Lowery, as these two gentle- men had planned to make their start in life from the proceeds reaped from the results of their night's accumulations. Vtfesley Robson responded by saying that he would do his best to keep an eye on the silver- ware. As he sat down, two soup spoons and a butter knife dropped from his pocket. This greatly added to the excitement of the evening. The audience was kept in suspense while the senior quartet rendered several varieties of "Blooze.', Pauline Crowder was greatly worried over the antics of Fred Marshall, the bass. He afterwards explained to her that he was "just getting down to business." He really should have done his singing in the basement, it was so low down. Although Dr. Benefiel swore that he was not advertising for the Washington Water Power company, he made a very good toaster. Miss Marjorie Kitto pleased all with her ren- dition of some of the more popular pieces, such as t'The Vamp" and "VVhose Heart Can I Break Next?" During her song she was forced to stop, as it was observed that Frank was Eaton. On the strength of this Mr. Ram- sey rose to the occasion and stated that as he noticed that some of the members of the senior B class were not very well bread he had better toast them This closed the official entertainment of the evening, but it has been rumored among some of the more sedate members that a few of the more mature seniors trod the light fantastic 'til early morning. When roll was called at school next morning the only casualties were Zell Spry and Helen Russum, who were suf- fering from nervous shock because they had seen the salad dressing. Dale Van de Walker was the victim of a terrible accident. Despite the warnings of Margaret Slater, who was act- ing as his chaperone, he stuck his spoon in his eye while drinking his coffee. It is thought that Dale will recover. NORTHERN LIGHT 26 NORTHERN LIGHT uttbern light Published semi-annually by the members of the North Central News Staff in honor of the graduating class.

Herein lies the real secret of success. Be sure that you live your own life, not that of another. "Remember that you are an actor of just such a part as is assigned to you by the Poet of the play, of a short part if the part be short, of a long part if the part be long. Should He wish you to act the part of a beg- gar, take care to act it naturally and noblyg and the same if it be the part of a lame man, or a ruler, or a private man, for this is in your power, to act well the part assigned to youg but to choose that part is the function of another."-Epictetus. If you act the part assigned to you and act it to the best of your ability, you are success- ful 5 but if you do not find your part and make the most of it you are a failure. How to find that part is a problem of great enormity that many men never solve. You cannot depend entirely on your own opinion concerning that part, for you may believe that you have a capacity for a certain kind of work -handicrafts, commerce and professions. The first class includes all skilled work that is done by the hands, mechanics of every kind belong to this class. The second covers buying, selling and the clerical work connected with it. The third includes medicine, law, ministry, science and other vocations that have little to do with manual labor and are somewhat re- moved from barter. Every person is htted for one of these voca- tions. The right start means success, while the wrong start may lead to failure, for the flush of success is possible only when what you want to do is what you can do, and what you can do will not bring you real success if you do not want to do it. - To succeed you must gather experience from all those with whom you come in contact and use that experience yourself. No matter how small your position may be, remember that by the law of God you are the master of yourself. You may be subject to fearful hand- icaps and be forced down by conditions, yet you remain supreme. If you are incompetent to rise above the ranks, you will remain there, 1, ,A, gg g ,A p at NORTHERN LIGHT 27 but however incapacitated you may be there is yet something that you can do. Opportun- ity to beneiit yourself and others does not leave you until you leave this world. It is fear, baseless, groundless, ignoble fear which makes life a bugbear to so many of us and leaves it so bare of success and happiness. Worry is brought on by fear, by ever looking on the dark side of life. It often shuts out all the joy of living while it greatly decreases man's efficiency. You must find the part that is assigned to you by the Poet, the part that is ,fitted to you, the part that you like. You must make the most of it by developing your mental and phy- sical powers to their greatest efiiciency, by knuckling down to your task with all your might, not doing merely what is required of you but everything within your power to bet- ter your work. By forming the habit of al- ways trying for perfection, never admitting defeat but turning it to some advantage, and ever remembering that good physical health is the greatest of all blessings. It is worth far more than money, fame or all things else com- bined. To be in balance, to be in tune, to feel no dragging lead upon the feet, no weight up- on the soul: that is life and nothing else is life. If you have done your best, you are a man of marked success even though that part of the world Whose opinion is worthless does not re- cognize you. logo- H.. A RACE FOR SUPREMACY-THE MAN AND THE MULE v ULES will be mules and therefore are in a class by themselves. But there is a certain division of man's section of the primates that is rap- idly leaving the long-eared quad- ruped behind in the race for title- ship in obstinacy and caprice. This distinct class contains none other than those who are "all-fired goodl' when they want to be, but if they are not in the proper mood it is simply a case of "muleitis." Their success is heavily punctuated by long, short and middle- sized relapses of vigor. These people are as balky as the proverbial Ford of the crude joke book. They travel along in a delightful manner, only, for some unknown and most freakish reason, to rear suddenly up on their "hind heels" and raise such a "rumpus" that they are left alone and al- lowed to punctuate their own careers with an excess of blanks, exclamation points and ques- tion marks. For a time their work is excellent, noon hours frequent and sun basking a plea- sure.

Such uneven balance finally comes to rest on a questionable grade and re- mains there. . It is the person who can and knows he can that is to a great extent the vic- tim. But he must remember that in the game of life it is the man who does, not can, that wins. The tortoise outstripped the hare be- cause he "stuck with the race" and didn't bask in the sun. And, in the long run, the steady, "plugging" man will meet with the success of the tortoise and the hare will have to abdicate. Steady pressure brings results but to push one moment and rest the next is as profitable as resting all the time. If you are going to work, work this moment, the next moment, the next day, the next week, the next month and the next year for the door to success is swung only after continued pres- sure. lf you must have your frequent relapses, admit that you are a failure and act accord- ingly. It is more profitable. i..o..o,... HONOR LH, ONOR! What thoughts of mighty deeds does the mere mention of f-:fn that small word awaken in your mind! One sees the hero of the battlefield stand and fight against bewildering odds to his last breath. He is covered with gore, but his death is one of honor. There stands the scientist, aged through continued groping in the darkness of unexplored fields. Honor! The man daily tramping the common walks of a seemingly uneventful life risks his all in an effort to save the helpless. And thus in all walks of life honor is found and respected. Ten names have been added this semester to North Central's scholastic roll of honor. Ten have been recognized as winning a most glori- ous victory in the cause for which public schools were organized, the conquest of knowl- edge. To receive this very worthy and much desired recognition it was necessary for them to have an average of at least 90 per cent in their entire high school course. In recognition of exceptional service to the school, still another honor is conferred upon those who have toiled unceasingly in order that North Central may attain success in activities other than athletics. The merited honor emblem consists of the Old English N. C. The recipients have found other ways of expressing school spirit than the mere "leather-lunged" approval type. The spirit is of a self-sacrificing nature, the placing of school before self. Still another honorary organization is the Senior English club. The membership of this F5 . . .u 8 X .iijf,', 3:52:22 .-...,,.g.,.,5-,. . f, -' . l 1 1, l , . ,. 28 NORTHERN LIGHT organization is made up of those who excell in English. And thus every whim of the new student desiring to receive recognition is satisfied. If athletics is not his choice he may resort to literary work. But whatever his choice he should strive to receive honor in some form or other, for after all it is the honor students of high school who make the honor men and women of the world. ....,.o.. VVI NNI NG HONORS TUDENTS who do exceptional Work in scholarship, athletics, mu- - sic, debate and other activities are doubly repaid for their Work by the experience they receive. But, as they have been of great service to North Central, by winning hon- ors in these activities and thereby making North Central what it now is, it is altogether fitting that they should be given something in recognition of their endeavors. Letters, med- als and honor awards a1'e the result. Such awards cannot be judged by their in- trinsic value but by the service that they rep- resent. They show that the possessor is a person of exceptional ability, a worker, one who has worked not only for himself but for the school. They serve as an incentive to others to strive for honors of equal degree and as an everlasting reminder to the winner, of the appreciation of two thousands students for valuable service rendered. They should be worn and treasured as such. The gold medal offered by the Delta club to the athelete who proves himself to be the best sportsman in North Central is an honor that an athlete can win. The man who wins this medal is without a doubt the best athlete in the school. Ability, aggresiveness, observance of training rules, the inspiration that he gives his teammates-all the qualities that build up the players-are considered by the committee which consists of the grand master of the Del- tas and members of the faculty and athletic board. Because of the strict judging, the medal is highly valued and should be the goal toward which all athletes aim. Other medals and letters offered for athletic supremacy are of proportionate value. A sec- ond team letter is given as a reward for a sea- son's hard work in helping develop the first team. The presentation of this letter often marks the start of a star, especially when it is won by a lower classman. First team letters mark the finish of a season's work in which the winners have shown exceptional ability. Awards offered for scholastic work are too often considered to be less desirable than ath- letic awards. They represent as much and Q I possibly more work than is done on the athlet- ic field for a letter. A school with a wonder- ful athletic history may be known all over the country, yet if its standard of scholarship is not high the school itself cannot be considered to be of high caliber. It is both the athletic and scholastic records which North Central has made that makes it the school that it is to- day. Letters won in music, prizes presented for mathematical proficiency, rewards won in debate, in fact all honor emblems should be valued and cherished for the service that they represent. The desire of some few students to wear letters not won by them lessens the value and desirability of such awards. .-...olei- FAREWELL T IS with indefinable emotions that we, the graduating class of January 1922, pass from the por- tals of our alma mater, North Central. We know not whether it is the joy of graduation, one more step toward the goal of success, or the sorrow of losing a great and magnani- mous friend that flushes our cheeks as we look from the past to the future. Be it a feeling of hope or regret, there is one element that pre- dominates and that is pride, not in ourselves but in our foster mother. Behind us are conquered fields, before us the mute future. Bright as our fortune may may be, there is one star of a dazzling bril- liance whose rays will never be dimmed by future conquests and that star is North Cen- tral. As a charming memory of youth it shall continue to linger in our minds to the last pas- sing on. May the future be as bright and as glorious as the past. We are the victors of the day. As we step to the mound with a blare of victorious trum- pets to proclaim to the world our conquest there forms behind us the ranks of our relief. To them we leave the new day and the new honor.

N BOOKS," Richard de Burg once said," I fmd the dead as if they were alive, in books I for- see things to come-all the glory of the world would be buried in oblivion, unless God had provi- ded mortals with the remedy of books." Surely there exists in the world today no greater blessing to man than books. Nor is there a greater tribute to the works of man than a great book -a book which grips the soul and makes us feel the better for the reading of it-a 'book which serves us in times of sorrow as well as in times of joy. A book nobly wrought shows the touch of the divine in man. No greater monument to a man's worth can be raised than a book-a book in which he has poured forth the noblest aspirations of his mind or the spir- itual revelations of his soul. Wliat is more wonderful than that the thoughts of a life time should be made visible unto all mankind, that black dots upon a white page should bring before our minds the most beautiful images or the most divine and uplifting thoughts. More remarkable than the telegraph or the telephone, a book not only annihilates space but time and brings the voice of David and Homer, the sages, the poets, heroes and philosophers across the seas of the ages. "No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting." Further, the great books that have stood the acid test contain the wisdom of all ages and they stand ready at all times for man to tap their wondrous stores of knowledge. In considering the worthwhile books, the question is often asked, "What books are wor- thy, what books are worthwhile ?" We must recognize the fact that there are many books of great value to others that have no message for us. The wisest man cannot select books that will suit others best. But keep this in mind: any book which persists, from one gen- eration even to the next, has some vital quality in it. If we examine its vitality, we shall find that it is based on truth. After all, the books which can make us see that we are but dwarfs of the men we might be, a mere burlesque of the men we intended to be, that we are but starved and stunted possibilities of what we might be-- the books which will open a rift in our lives and give us a real glimpse of our undiscovered forces, these are for us good books. This, too, remember: books of the hour are confectionery and partaken of too much are only a dissipation of mental power. On the other hand, great books rightly read become mental possessions. They make for mental and spiritual growth for they are the staple food of the mind. Again, books are a world in themselves. If the spirit moves us to know and associate with great and noble men, without formality or ceremony, we can do so through books where we shall always find them in their best moods. "Plato is never sullenl' says Macaulay, "Cer- vantes is never petulantg Demosthenes never comes unseasonablyg Dante never stops too long, no difference of opinion can alienate Cic- ero, no heresy can excite the horror of Bossuetf' Through our books, whenever we so desire, we can enter the House of Commons and listen to the thrilling oratory of O'Connell,of Ed- mund Burke, Disraeli, Gladstone or VVright. They will admit us to the flow of our Senate where we can hear the matchless oratory of Webster, Clay, Calhoun, Sumner or Wilson. They will pass us into the Roman forum where I 1 30 NORTHERN LIGHT I we can hear Cicero or to the rostrums of Greece where we may listen to the magic elo- quence of Demosthenes. Nor is reading a matter of wealth, for the poorest boy can converse freely with the great- est philosophers, scientists and statesmen the world has ever seen. Through books he may revel in the intellect of Plato or of Socrates. The ragged bootblack can act in "Hamlet" with Shakespeare. The day laborer can listen. to Homer reciting in the Grecian groves. The ditch-digger may follow Caesar in his cam- paigns, or Alexander in the conquest of the world. Milton will cross the threshold to sing to one in rags, the story of Paradise. The psalmist will enter the meanest hovel to repro- duce his immortal chants. Do you wish to travel? You can do so without a steamer or a train by reading the books of travel. You can go to London, visit the Buckingham Palace or the National Art Gallery. Perhaps you would like to visit and inspect the tomb of Napoleon or promenade through the Champs Elysee. Go to China, if you will, and sup with the Mandarin or watch the Geisha girls dance. In the world of poetry, Emerson, Riley or Longfellow, and many other masters and princes of poets have a message for you. O, the world of books is here, enter and par- take of its wisdom and its pleasures. Taste of the fruits of good works. Great books, like the soul of man, are immortal. Like man, they are the salt of the earth. The Kingdom of Books beckons. Why falter? Life is short, and I wonder that the stones do not cry out if we heed not the call of one of the earth's greatest blessings. . However full days or weeks or years have been of trouble, or even sin, the miracle, the great conversion, may be Wrought by the per- usal of great books-immortal works-and all the unrest, the trial ,the sorrow shall be lifted, the burdens removed, and the soul caught up to ineffable joy and life and light.-Robert Zimmerman. imolol. WHERE THE B IG FIRES BURN Second Prize, "Ne WS " Literary Comes: ILL MCGREGGORS eyes were blinded by the blood colored 11" sun, which, in setting, cast a m,Q,H 53532, fiery glare over the huge column 'f'3j'fm'3"'i' of smoke that rose from the Q' If ,t , I ,QI 3.55 i 9 Bear Meadows fire. In the crimson light the billows of smoke boiled and writhed like things alive, ever changing themselves from shapless mas- ses to fantastic forms. Forms which faded into nothingness even as they were forming. As Bill sat there on his horse, watching this pan- orama of nature spread out before him, there lioated across on the still, fragrant air, the delicate musical tinkle of a bell in the sheep camp, hundreds of feet below him. VVith a deep sigh, compelled by the beauty of the scene before him, and the very joy of living, he picked up the reins, and by a gentle touch of his heels, started his horse down the trail to the camp. As he neared the bottom of the hill, a break in the trees before him revealed one of nature's rarest pictures. A tiny lake lay between two towering crags, which, in the fast deepening dusk. cast huge, vague shadows on the surface of the lake. The wierd, low call of a mourning done reminded him that nightfall was near, and brought him from his reverie. He hurried on, and entered the 4 1 sheep camp. Soon the two herders came in, and they all sat down to supper. After the meal was over, Bill delivered his warning. "Say, fellows, the boss sent me up to tell you that it's best to get out. Fires are getting big and it ain't safe." The sheep men looked at one another in disappointment, for this loca- tion was good grazing land, and they hated to leave it. As the moon stole from cloud to cloud, and the embers of the fire slowly faded, they went to bed. Next morning Bill rose early, and after a hasty breakfast, started up the hill opposite the one he had descended the previous evening. The ranger was in high spirits. The pure mor- ning air invigorated him, and every fibre of his body thrilled to the joy of living. As his cayuse buckled to the work of climbing the steep hill, Bill leaned forward and patted its now dampened shoulders. "Well, old top, snap into it, ,cause this is your last ride this season. When we get back to the station you'll be turned out, and you sure deserve it." The horse's ears lay back for a moment as he caught the familiar tone of his master's voice. Perfect understanding existed between him and Bill. They were old pals of the trail. The crest of the ridge was reached just as the sun came over the top of MacLinder Butte. NGRTHERN LIGHT 31 Bill dismounted and slipped his arm about the neck of his mount. Lying before him was wave on wave of hill, stretching as far as the eye could see. Hills clothed in the rich green of virgin timber, marred here and there by the discordant grey of burned-over areas. Numerous lakes lay diamond-like in their setting of deep green. To his left, a silver thread, the Lockshaw, wound hesitatingly between pine-crested banks. The valleys and canyons were smoth- ered Linder a deep mantle of mist, which rose and fell with the movement of the ever rest- less ocean, as the morning breezes gamboled above. The twittering of the birds filled the air. He heard the warning stamp of a deer which had unwarily happened upon him, and heizvatched it disappear in a dense thicket. He heard the howl of a belated coyote. This was life! He heard the call of nature, and was thrice happy to be living. But the smile of satisfaction vanished from his face as he turned and saw the progress the two fires had made. Of course, they were not burning as rapidly they had been the evening before, but they were burning at a greater speed than they were wont to burn in the morning. The north end of the Bear Meadows fire was bordering on a heavy strip of pine which covered the hillside below the trail. The Canyon Creek fire was smoking profusely. However, he could not see whether it had made much head- way, because it was on the other side of the next ridge. Bill whistled in consternation. "Gee whiz, when the Bear Meadows fire hits that pine, there won't be two fires- there'll be just one big one. Well, I'll ride along." He swung into the saddle and soon his cayuse was singlefooting down the trail. At noon he opened up his saddlebags and ate sar- dines and raisins as he sat by a little spring where he drank, and filled his canteen. Qnce more on the trail, he sank into deep thought. He was aroused by a deep Booml, as that of a far away cannon. A big puff of smoke arose over the top of the trees in the direction of the Bear Meadow's fire. Bill knew by this that it had started up the hill. He did not think. That one look told him what to do. He dug his heels into the flanks of his horse, and they were away, pounding swiftly over the smooth trail. Bill's cayuse, for all his knock knees, was able to lay a great many footprints behind him in a very short time. Bill took a down hill trail that led to Castle Butte ranger sta- tion, about a mile in front of the fire. The station, though long since evacuated, sheltered a telephone. Bill's cayuse, sensing an urgent reason for this sudden burst of speed, lay low to the trail, the Hying foam from his jaws flecking the hands and legs of his rider. At last Bill reined i him in on his haunches in the midst of an old burn about a quarter of a mile from the cabin, for he knew that his chances of getting out, once he reached the cabin, were doubtful, and if he left the horse here, it, at least, would be saved. So many thoughts passed through Bill's mind as he ran- that quarter mile up the trail, that it would be useless to attempt to tell you of them. He heard the flames roaring and tlf crash as huge trees fell. After what seemed hours of lung bursting exertion, he gained the cabin. As he dived through the door he heard the Hames roaring overhead. The ire had overtaken him. He knew 'he had a chance to escape if he retreated immediately, but the message must go through, or the sheep men would be trapped like rats. He rushed to the telephone and rang the Bear Meadows fire camp. "Hello, Vlfisholt? Send the whole crew up to keep the Coolwater trail open. Don't fail because"-a sharp "crack," a rush, a roar, and then a sickening crash as a giant cedar fel' across the little cabin, crushing it as if it were an eggshell. Then the flames began their work. Later, when the fire was under control, the crew approached the spot where the cabin had stood. They were surprised to see two sheep men standing there reverently, with bared heads. The herders had found in the ruins a blackened forest service badge, and the hob- nailed sole of a boot. And behind these two men was a knock- kneed cayuse, saddled and bridled, waiting faithfully for the master who would never come.-VVayne Bevis. .,..o,io...-. FOCH ENTERTAINMENT North Central students played an important part in helping to entertain Marshal Foch and his military party on Tuesday, November 20. On stepping off the train Marshal Foch was presented with a huge bouquet of red roses from North Central students, by Aileen Lin- ney, assisted by Lois Byler and Elizabeth Poole. A group of North Central girls composed of Irmen G-ibney, Irene Jackson, Mary Vtfilson and Rebecca McHenry gave several cowgirl and milkmaid dances at the banquet given in honor of Marshal lfoch at the Davenport ho- tel, Tuesday evening. Rebecca McHenry gave a solo dance and presented the marshal with a large Spitzenberg apple tied with red, white and blue ribbons. As Miss Spokane, Mrs. Walter Shiel, for- mer dramatic coach at North Central, came at the invitation of the Spokane to Spokane Advertising club to give Spokane's address of welcome to the noted general. 32 NORTHERN LIGHT HJ H9 43 ogg fi fybtitajgvi di XNXIWMVI THE PRICE GF BEING BEAUTIFUL Third Prize, "News" Literary Contest.

' ' - .Llp - ' ' 7 wondered at, then, that girls shamelessly strive for beautv? There are girls who are naturally beautiful, or at least attractive. These girls are secretly envied by their girl friends, while the boys openly admire and pursue them. Un the other hand there are many who are unattractive or even repulsive to look at. They may be very good at heart, but a good heart is much more desirable when it is set oh' by a beautiful face. Certainly it is not strange that even the most hopeless "cases" should strive to acquire the beauty that they feel should have been theirs. When I think of the agonies I have suffered in my quest for beauty, I cannot help laughing, even when I know that at present I am doing even more absurd things to gain the distant goal of "Beauty." The search for beauty seems so hopeless, we all see it but we cannot reach it. Perhaps this all sounds absurd, but all vani- ties of life are inclined to be ridiculous. Maybe the horror of being called a "smoked Swede" seems quite a joke to you, but it is a real grief to me. Nothing could be worse than to possess light hair, dark eyes and a dark complexion. In fact, my brother has gone so far as to tell me "he can't tell where my hair begins and my face leaves off." Surely, nothing could be more trying. I have tried to bleach my skin, but it is use- less! I shall never forget the salt mixtures, the cucumber lotion, or the lemons I have used on my long suffering face! The salt burned wick- edly and the lemon was worse still, but the cu- cumber lotion was the most disastrous ! At first all went well, and I began to have hopes of a creamy white complexion. Then my skin lit- erally shrivelled until I could scarcely see out of my eyes, they were so badly misplaced. That wasnit all. I could have stood that. But the warped skin began to peel and I thought it would never stop. At last, it quit burning, and I picked up my courage and examined my face. I was truly a rosebud, only my brother chose to compare me to a lobster. Gradually the ugly red was replaced by the creamy white I had coveted. That was a great joy to me, but unfortunately it did not last, and I hadn't the courage to try it again. Even the thoughts of that wonderful' coloring couldn't tempt me. Life is too dear! A very beautiful friend told me that cold baths made the skin soft and pretty. That sounds easy enough, but it is far from simple. just try getting out of a warm bed and into a cold bath when the temperature is zero or be- low. Your teeth chatter, and your muscles seem to freeze, but you feel fine when it's over. Sometimes I even fancy my skin is get- ting lighter, but I always know that it isn't. Then there has always been my hair. It seems a pity that we couldn't all have curly hair. You can always curl it yourself, but then it is sure to -go straight at the wrong time. It is horrid to have it go straight in five minutes, when you have slept on a dozen or so vicious aluminum curlers the night before to make those same curls. Besides it's very mortifying to go down town with wavy locks and then come home with "stringy" locks. I-Iowever, my bangs are a great comfort to me, but even they are a source of worry. They, too, must be curled. Once I burned my fore- head so badly that it was necessary to wear a ribbon around my head for two weeks. That was a disgrace, for I was a Sophomore at the time. And then- every night I sleep on them at a different angle, and every morning they have a dozen different twists. That means work and patience. After such a siege it is very discouraging to have your brother tell you that you look like a "freak" with those "things" sticking up. Once, just to get even with him, I wore his skull cap to bed, but I didn't get them back to normal for a week. Of course, there is always my nose, but even clothes pins and splints failed to help it. In fact after my last treatment it became so red and swollen that mother became alarmed and sent me to the doctor. I-Ie said I "must have injured it." Even I knew that much. In fact, I am far too wide every way, but there seems no help for it. You cannot conceive of my horror of being wide. I really mean fat, but somehow "wide" doesn't seem so severe and absolutely hopeless. Naturally all this seems childish and foolish to you, but the next time you feel inclined to laugh at someone's little vanities just consider his side of the question, and remember that you, yourself, unconsciously show a preference for a pretty friend. Perhaps you have even tried to beautify yourself. VVe pay the price for beauty, but we do not get the value. Life's vanities are mere bubbles. -Janice McAvoy. NORTHERN LIGHT 33 PEANUTS AND COLLIE PUPS By Wesley Robson EN-YEAR-OLD Peanuts Miller ! was so inordinately fond of peanuts that all his young X friends referred to him by that name rather than by the baptis- mal one of Harold. However, this evening as Peanuts sat at the library table opposite his father and mother, the appellative fruit was forgot- ten. The school-book which lay unopened be- fore him was forgotten. All things were for- gotten except matters relating to the possibility of his possessing one of the Collie puppies which he had seen in a store window on his way home from school, Due to hi smother's at- titude on the subject, the boy had judiciously refrained from launching his plea for a canine companion until his father had reached home and had eaten. Peanuts, in the last several years, had listened to several parental decrees relative to the lmpracticability of urban dog rearing, and he was going to profit by the fail- ures of the past. "Say, dadll' Mr. Miller lowered the eve- ning paper and Mrs. Miller paused in her sew- ing. "Dad, guess what I saw in Hackett's store window when I was coming home from school. Five Collie pups. Oh, they're just the cutest and liveliest little dogs-one 'speciallyl I asked Mr. Hackett how much they were, and he said five dollars each. That's so cheapg and I want a Collie pup awfully. You said you had a dog when you were a boy, dad, and I don't see why I can't have one to play with, in the city. Besides, dog-a great blg one. , too, even if I do live Jimmy Renwick has a If I got a puppy now, he'd soon be big, too, and not be any troublef, take lots to feed him "Yes, and it would then," interjected Mrs. Miller. "VVhy, I'll work and earn enough to buy dog-biscuits for him. Dog-biscuits is what jimmy feeds Sport with." 'AI don't want to be bothered with a dog, anyhow," and Mrs. Miller set to sewing again. "I'll take care of him and he won't be a bit of trouble to you or dad." Peanuts assnmed a pleading tone and an appealing look. "VVe'd like to have you own a dog, Harold," said his father, "if there were any place for him, but we feel that it is useless to try to keep a dog in town. He can't get the proper exer- cise and he's always in the house. Your re- guest, is out of the question, so forget about it." ' But the finality of this last decree did not completely dismay the supplicating Peanuts. This time he was confident that his desire for aupuppy was real-that his desire was very great. Instead of dismissing the idea he brooded over it all evening. His parents watched. Finally, he arose and went upstairs to his bedroom. Then Mr. Miller and Mrs. Miller held a conference. The issues were discussed and at last a decision was reached. Mr. Miller secured his wife's half-hearted consent to allow Harold to have a Collie pup provided the boy begged for the privilege again the next day. The following afternoon Mr. Miller was home when Peanuts came in from school. Of course, the prospective puppy owner had passed the store window where appeared the canine display, and his mind was full of argu- ments to support his cause. "Say, dad," began Peanuts, "there are only three of those puppies left, and only one of them is cute-it's the one I thought was cutest right at first. Why can't I have one? He costs only five dollars, and I'd lots rather have him than almost anything else I could get for five dollars. Wheii I earn the money I'll pay you back, dad," and he laid his hand on his father's arm, In accordance with the conference decision, Mr. Miller's hand plunged into his pocket and withdrew the pocketbook. "All right, Harold, here's five dollars, but remember that if you get a dog you'll have to take care of him so that mother and I won't be bothered." "I will," was the ready promise. Peanuts picked up his cap from the table where he had thrown it. He paused. "Oh say, mother, I haven't got a single pea- nut in my pocket, and this morning I couldn't find any in the sack in the cupboard. Aren't there any left ?" "No, I guess you've eaten the last of them," was his mother's disappointing answer. I'm afraid we'll have to stop buying such expensive food for you, now that you're going to get a dog to feed." "VVell, run along and get your pup before mother changes her mindf, was the paternal advice which sent the boy out the door and on his way down the street. A quarter of an hour later Peanuts re- turned, carrying a large covered basket. He marched into the house and, with an effort, deposited this basket on the kitchen cabinet. "Oh, my !" exclaimed his mother, "you can't keep your dog up there." Peanuts turned around rather sheepishly. "I decided," he said, carefully measuring his words, "not to spend my money for a puppy because he'd be so hard to take care ofg and then I bought five dollars' worth of peanuts so as not to waste the money 2" - 34 NORTHERN LIGHT :E gg- NAMES ARE STRANGE THINGS AFTER ALL If names mean what they say, North Cen- tral should be able to fill most of the needs of a small modern world, for in the student en- rollmentifiles nearly everything is listed, from members of the royal family down to inani- mate things like stones. For instance, the royalty is composed of Kings, Kisers, Knights and Lords, who have their private Cooks, Gardners and Taylors, and whose meat, furnished by the Sheppards, is prepared by Skinners and Carvers. In ad- dition to Rice and Bacon, they are very fond of "Eaton" Graham, ground by many Millers, and cooked Brown by experienced Bakers. Most of the royalty are Riders, each of Whom owns a Large Carr or Buss of some kind, but in spite of the fact that they are Rich, there are a few Walkers who often re- quire the services of a Schumacker. Occa- sionally, they go to the Church, built of Stone and Wood by the Carpenters, and there they listen to Deans who Rapp the Brewers, and attemptto pass Rules which will make the people do what is Wright. Down on the Corner of the main Street, there is a Poole Hall, run by an old Hunter. This is a favorite Daily hangout for the Rude and Hardy Fishers, Miners, Porters and Smiths, who shove their Cupps a-Cross the Barr for another high-Ball, while they Grieve for their comrades, the Sailors, who spend Weeks working in the Riggin' of their Barks with the Waters dashing over the Dech. There are also some Spry and Lively Wid- does who follow the Stiles, and like to Waltz. If one of these Widdoes, being exceedingly Weise, should set her Harte on some Manly, Young Shriner who owns a Ford, they might secure a Bishop to "Merriam" while the Church Bells ring. The little North Central world is well pro- vided with Wilde life, there being Beavers, Campbells, Coons, Foxes, Lyons and various Byrds, including the Robin, Drake, Finch and Teal, while the Brooks abound in Trout, Pike and other Fish, some of which are good Fries. Even geographical features are not over- looked, for there are Hills, Glenns, Marshes with Banks of Reids, and Fields of several Acres, and in the Woods one finds Bushes, Flowers, Moss, Bark, Ceder, Oakes and a Leaf. In the way of architecture there are Barnes, Gates, Churches, Halls and Mills, with Gar- retts, Boothes and Sellars, and they may be of almost any color, for White, Gray, Green, Brown and Black are included in the list. One thing which has been neglected, how- ever, is a specific description of the magnitude of things, for the only sizes mentioned are i Teeney, Short, Large and Bigger, which are somewhat conflicting in their explanation. In addition to the many persons already mentioned, there are a few left-over parts of others, for the list includes a number of Harts, some Hare, a Chinn and a Kneebone, which probably can be used for repairs in case of accidents. , ....,,.,,..

Ninety children were furnished with Christmas pre- sents and cheer, who would otherwise have received practically no attention at that time. 5 NORTHERN LIGHT 41 l SANS SOUCI Miss BERTHA Coivrmos, Director President .....g....... .......

Dale Van de VValker Named after that well-known street in London where so many great literary geniuses gathered, the Grub Street club was founded during the fall of 1915 by L. VV. Sawtelle, then head of the English department of North Central, At First the club was organized for both boys and girls. The following year the club was reorganized and the organization became strictly for boys. ln 1918, H. F. Holcombe, of the science depart- ment, became director of the club during the ab- sence Vof Mr. Sawtelle. Three years ago at the sug- gestion of Mr. Holcombe, the club started the joint meetings with the Vox Puellarum, the girls' literary club of North Central and the Papyrus club of Lewis and Clark. A literary contest is staged jointly with the Vox Puellarnm for all the students of the school, except the members of the literary societies. Leo A. Borah, faculty director of the News, was selected by the members of the club to succeed Mr. Holcombe, who left North Central to take a position at Broadway high school at Seattle. Mr. Borah left North Central to become instructor in journalism at Central high school, Minneapolis, Minn. lvan Benson, instructor in journalism at North Central, was elected by the club to become the new director in the fall of 1921. - The club is now enjoying a most prosperous year. The present members are: Ivan Benson, faculty di- rector, Louie Ashlock, Maurice Balfour, VVayne Be- vis, Harvey Brassard, Kenneth Bush, Gerald Cole- man, George Daniel, Frank Eaton, Kellogg Finley, John Graham, Abner Grimsrud, Ingwald Henneberg, Glen Koll, Ross Osborne, Wesley Robson, Wayne Stauffer, Vtfilliam Tousey, Russell Wetherell and Dale Van de Walker. 44 NORTHERN LIGHT LIBRARY BOARD President ....,. .,.,,,,, O , Leighton Bailey Secretary ,,.. .,......

The Rooters' club was organizd for the purpose of form- ing a yelling neucleus at the various games and other activities at which yelling was a necessity. For a while they also patrolled the fields at var- ious games but later decided that they could render more valuable service to the school by yelling, leav- ing the patroling of the field to the traffic squad. Members of the Rooters' club do, however, patrol the football field during practice to see that the players are not bothered and also to help protect the secrecy of signals and plays. This semester the club took part in a rooting contest which was sponsored by the Western Royal Live Stock show. Their only opponent was the Gon- Seeretary ...... ..............

The con- test was easily won by the Rooters' club yell squad. The club was presented with a large banner as first prize. The Rooters' club has as their mascot a Berk- shire pig. It was due to the help of this mascot that the club walked off with first prize so easily. The pig was sold this fall to Enoch Engdahl, a member of the school board. Mr. Engdahl promises to loan one of the mascot's progeny each year to act as the ofhcial mascot of the club at games and other acti- vities. It has been decided that every member of the club should purchase and use at the games, a small megaphone. This will greatly increase the yelling volume of the club and make them of greater value as a yelling unit. A46 NORTHERN LIGHT AQUATIC CLUB E. B. GODFREY, Director President .,.....,..... ...,...

NORTHERN LIGHT 47 CAMP FIRE GIRLS Nine months ago 13 girls, under the direc- tion of Miss Annette Francisco, organized .what was known as the Chemawa group of the Camp Fire Girls. Today there are over 100 North Central girls who belong to the local Camp Fire. Instead of one group there are now nine, each with a guardian, who is working to make her group larger and better than all other groups. Six of these nine groups are composed en- tirely of North Central girls. The other three groups contain both high school and grade school students, with the high school girls in the majority. The Indian names of the groups, the number of girls in each group and the group guardians are as follows: Chemawa, 14, Miss Annette Franciscog Assandawi, 12, Miss Bertha Comingsg Natshi, 9, Miss Josephine Hubble, Tawa Namu, l5, Miss Christine McRae, Unaluje, 12, Miss May C. Frank, Tapawingo, 20, Mrs. Mary Fauldsg Waziyata Allan, 9, Mrs. Edna Duerfeldt, Ta- hamous, 10, Miss Emugene Vlfymang Wiiiina, 13, Mrs. Earl Ramharter. The object of the Camp Fire is to promote more of an interest in the simple tasks and duties of the home and to establish a closer connection between the girl and her home. The girls are rewarded for their work by a system of honor emblems. These consist of Indian designs worked on leather and are worn on the ceremonial gowns of the girls. The girls make most of their own ceremonial gowns, even weaving their beaded head bands, .much after the fashion of the primitive Indian maiden. Bead honor emblems may be won in any of the following seven crafts: Home, health, camp, business, nature lore, hand craft and citizenship. The different groups meet weekly and are self-supporting. The Camp Fire Girls of Nctrth Central recently won the silver loving cup offered for the organization of the city which sold the greatest amount of Red Cross seals for the relief of the tubercular people of the country. In the campaign the girls sold 12,765 seals, mostly to North Central students. Dif- ferent groups took charge of the entertain- ment of families for Christmas. The Camp Fire Girls have also taken part in all of the various social service drives which have been conducted in the city. A meeting of all of the groups at a grand ceremonial will be held in February. The last meeting of this kind was held in the North Central gym. Over 75 girls and nine guard- ians were present at this meeting. 48 NORTHERN LIGHT J V - ... , AMPHION SOCIETY C. Oux RICE, Director r President ..Y...... ........

The Delta club works in close connection with the Young Men's Christian Association and aims for the moral, phy- sical and mental uplift of its members. The club is composed mostly of students who are prominent in some line of student endeavor, such as athletic, music and literary work. Among the activ- ities for which the Delta club is known is the annual Hi-,links which is held in the spring of the year.

This fall the football honor award was won by Grand Master Milton Martin. This is Martin's second medal, as he was chosen as the most valuable man on last ycar's basket ball team. The "Delta Trio" composed of Fred Marshall, Orlen Bailey Elllil George Patton, has made over 25 appearances before Spokane audiences during the last semester.

It is this organ- ization and the Girls' League that have been the means of making North Central famous all over the west as one of the most democratic schools in the country. The federation was organized origin- ally to give every boy in the school a chance to become engaged in some school activity. The organ- ization has gradually broadened its fields of endea- vor until it now enters fields entirely outside of the school. , These outside activities are handled by the com- munity service department of which john Heily is head. This department has given various entertain- ments at the county poor form, Edgcliff sanitarium, Hutton home and other similar places. VVesley Robson, in charge of the personal service department has conducted the good fellowship drives besides helping numerous students who were failing. Kenneth Bush deserves a great deal of commen- dation for his successful handling of the school ser- vice department. This department was responsible for the successsful management of the play "Her Husband's Wife," a comedy produced by the var- sity players of the University of Idaho. .....o..oi S. P. R.

I S4 NORTHERN LIGHT CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS MASQUE SOCIETY The dramatic ability of North Central is officially represented by the Masque society. Any one who is interested in dramatics and can satisfactorily display his talent before the club members is eligible for membership. It has been the policy of the club to present, once every year, some play of the better class. The play is given each spring. Another custom which the club follows is the presenting a Christmas convo- cation. - BLUE TRIANGLE The Blue Triangle club, composed entirely of girls, is the only one of the many high school clubs which is composed of both North Central and Lewis and Clark students. Its true purpose is the promo- tion of a more friendly feeling between the girls of both high schools. They work in cooperation with the Young VVomen's Christian Association. They helped to relieve the homeless and destitute people of Spokane this winter by providing Christ- mas dinners for several families. Besides the din- ners they furnished toys, candy and a Christmas tree for the little folks. LIBRARY BOARD North Central has the reputation of having the best governed high school library in the west. The governing of the library is all handled by the stu- dents themselves. not directly, but through what is known as the library board. It is composed of five students, two chosen by the Girls' League, two by the Boys' Federation and the fifth member chosen by the Girls' League and the Boys' Federation to- gether. These members must be seniors and their term of onice is two semesters. This board takes care of the placing of monitors in the library and passes judgment on all violaters of the library rules. It also takes care of all of the other work which pertains to the government of the library during school hours. Beginning with the month of December 1921 the board extended its stu- dent government of the library before school in the morning. This enables the librarian, Miss Fargo, to devote her time to library work in the morning. ENGINEERING SOCIETY The interest in engineering is kept alive in North Central by the members of the Engineering society. Any boy interested in engineering is eligible. The club members make regular trips to industrial plants to investigate practical engineering. Although primarily a club for boys only, the Aquatic club has let down the barriers and this last semester girls were admitted. It is one of the newer clubs and has as its object the promotion of'water sports and activities. AQUATIC CLUB One of the customs of the Aquatic club has been to give a gold medal to the swimmer who has proven himself the most valuable member of his team. The medal was won last year by Orville Peterson, then captain. During the summer the Aquatic club sent a relay team composed of four members, Astcm, Haynes, Peterson and Cunningham, to the Lewiston Aquatic 083 meet. The team brought back a large silver loving cup offered for the champion relay team. The cup was presented to the school by the Aquatic club. The members of the team also won various individual ART CLUB The Art club is composed of twenty-live students who have banded themselves together to help pro- mote interest in fine arts in North Central. They also place exhibitions in the library and make posters for different departments of the school. AMPHION SOCIETY Any student who will display his ability as a vocal or instrumental soloist, first before the club and then in convocation, may become a member of the Am- phion society. This society has charge of all musi- cal numbers for convocations and school entertain- ments. The purpose of the club is to promote the right kind of music in North Central. At the semi- monthly meetings the members study the lives of composers and artists. LINCOLNIAN DEBATING SOCIETY North Central's newest club is the Lincolnian debating society. Although it was only organized this fall, it is becoming very active. At its weekly meetings, different phases of present-day life and political questions are discussed by the club members. The last event of impo1'tance which took place this semester was a banquet given for the club members at the Davenport hotel, Friday, January 6, l922. honors. VOX PUELLARUM A The Vox Pnellarum is the girls' literary club and has much the same purpose as the Grub Street club. Once every year the two literary clubs conduct a joint meeting at which methods for arousing interest in literary work in the high school are discussed. Any girl in North Central who is willing to write a literary composition is eligible for membership. SPANISH CLUB , The Spanish club is one of the more recently or- ganized clubs and is composed of students who have completed Spanish I and II with an average of C or better. It has as its purpose the encouragement of better social relations between the students in North Central and the students in South American schools. RADIO CLUB The most important movement which the radio club has been engaged in this fall is the Western Wireless Press association. The Radio club acts as the sending and receiving arm of the organization. The Radio club also sponsored the electrical show which was held in the North Central auditorium, December 19, 1921. COMMERCIAL CLUB To every student enrolled in typewriting is of- fered the opportunity of winning the typewriting contest, which is conducted by the commercial club. The club also aims to promote interest in commer- cial work. They also take inspection tours of lead- ing commercial houses in Spokane. NORTHERN LIGHT 55 xi i ., ,ll IA?- I , l WESTERN WIRELESS PRESS ASSO- CIATION Finding the need of establishing some means of closer relationship between the high schools of the western part of the country, the North Central News has originated the Western Wireless Press association. This association as it is now operating provides for the ex- change of live news between the schools of the western part of the country. When all present plans are completed about 35 schools will be members of the association. Schools as far south as Los Angeles and as far east as Minneapolis have been invited to become members. With the small radio equipment with which most high schools are now equipped it is im- possible to send the messages any great dis- tance, but by means of relaying the news this difficulty is overcome and many more schools are benefited by it. The association will give every school a chance to study its neighbor and profit there- by. News items which formerly appeared in the exchange columns could not be less than two weeks old, while with the help of the association the important items can appear in a paper's exchanges nearly as quickly as in its own pages. The association at North Central is being aided by the North Central Radio club. Every Friday night members of the club get in touch with nearby schools, relaying the news on to the next station. 10-M- VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE DEPART- MENT Miss Nelle Wilson is director of the voca- tional guidance department. She has been with North Central for four years and has accomplished many things while here. The vocational department's duties are num- erous and the scope of its activities are wide. It attempts to bring the grade schools on the North Side into closer relations with the high school by visiting each one of the grade schools to help the incoming freshmen select a course of study best suited for them. The depart- ment sends representatives to the grade schools to give information about high school. A re- ception is given to the incoming freshmen each year at North Central. Many students are placed in homes and given positions during the year. This is done in order that the students may earn money either to support themselves or to contribute to their own support so that they can continue going to school. Students who desire help in selecting their course of study are given help at all times. In- formation concerning college requirements may be obtained in the vocational office. There are many college catalogs on the shelves in the vocational office for the use of the student body. Miss 'Wilson is writing a book which will contain information for students who are try- ing to select a life career. A valuable feature of the book is information given by business and professional men of Spokane on various occupations. ' ...koi MOTHERS' CLUB The Mothers' club of North Central, which is composed of the mothers of the students of the school, has just completed a most suc- cessful year. Failing in its attempt to secure from the school board the gymnasium in which to give dances, the club, with the Parent-Teachers' association of Lewis and Clark, has organized the Red, Orange and Black proms. These dances are open to all students of both high schools. Two of these dances have been given and both have been well attended by students from the schools. The officers for this semester are: Mrs. R. M. Waters, presidentg Mrs. E. B. Nelson, vice-president, Miss Martha Wartenbee, sec- retary, Mrs. Graham, treasurer. 56 NoRTHERN LIGHT J SAVINGS BANK Though it has been open to business for only the last three and a half months, the North Central Savings Bank has over 55 accounts and has averaged over 3100 a month in -deposits. Four school clubs, the Commer- cial, French, Spanish and Radio clubs, are depositing with the bank. Martha Wartinbee, a teacher in the commercial department, is faculty supervisor of the bank. Four boys, students in the business course, operate the bank. The bank has offices in room 100. During the thrift week conducted by the Kiwanis club, January 17 to 24, the North Central Savings Bank also carried on a cam- paign for thrift and a drive for new accounts. "The purpose of the bank," said Miss War- tinbee, "is not only to encourage thrift among the high school students, but also to give stu- dents in the business course practical experi- ence in banking." ---o-o? VOX AVVARD The semi-annual Vox award which is made at the end of each semester to the girl in the graduating class who makes the most progress during her high school career was this year awarded to Zella Jacobson. The award is a cash prize of 310. The award is made on the following princi- pals: preeminence in scholarship, personality, and obstacles overcome. Miss Jacobson will be presented with the prize at the regular commencement exercises. The committee which made the award was made up of the following members: Princi- pal A. H. Benefiel, Miss Jessie E. Gibson, Miss Nelle Wilson, Miss Elgine Warren, Kathleen Riley, Dorothy Bloom, and Aileen Linney. Isabel Nelson won the award last semester. --o-o-- JUNIOR RED CROSS g A record was established in North Central by the Girls' League when the league raised 3476.25 by popular subscription of the student body, for the local chapter of the Junior Red Cross, between the dates of November 14 and 20. The original quota of S496 which was as- signed to North Central was larger than that of any other school in Spokane. After a care- ful recheck of the school's attendance the amount to be raised was lowered to 347625. In order to raise this amount, every student in North Central subscribed 25 cents. The drive started with one of the livest Red Cross assemblies in the history of the school. George Greenwood, vice-president of the Old National bank, spoke on the Junior Red Cross clinic in Spokane. He cited its many needs and also told of the several hundred school children of the city who were benefited by the clinic last year. He spoke also of the repu- tation which the Spokane branch was creating for itself and the students and friends who are furnishing financial backing. According to Mr. Greenwood the clinic here is being used by the National Red Cross as a model and is being shown throughout the United States in Pathe weekly reviews. The second day of the drive four rooms were 100 per cent, and within a week all but S75 of the school's quota had been raised. This is the third annual Junior Red Cross drive to be held in North Central and 3476.25 is the largest amount ever raised in the two weeks' drive. Although the North Central quota was considerably larger than that of Lewis and Clark high school we went "over the top" sev- eral days before our nearest rival. The drive was handled entirely by the Girls' League through their room representatives and under the supervision of Miss Carrie D. Hitchcock, head of the domestic science de- partment of the school. Much of the credit for the rapidity with which the quota was raised is due to Miss Hitchcock for her efforts in making the drive a success. ...,,-,,-H GOOD ENGLISH WEEK The annual "Good English VVeek" was ob- served in North Central from November 7 to 12. Extensive plans for the observance of the week were begun by the committee in charge early in October so that everything was in readiness. Slogans, mock trials, a "Good Eng- lish" playlet and a poster contest helped to im- press upon the students the necessity of good English. Three hundred slogans, posted in the halls and different rooms acted as constant remin- ders to the students of the misuse of their native language. A poster contest in which 20 contestants were entered was carried on during the week. The posters were displayed in the halls and were voted on through the News. Every pos- ter received at least one vote. A mock trial, in which "Good English" op- posed "Hobo Bad English," was given by the members of the senior dramatics class. The "Good English" playlet given by the faculty showed the disadvantages of using bad English. The playlet was given in a ten-cent convocation. Beginning November 28, "Good Speech" bulletins to advertise further the necessity of good speech were distributed to the students. The bulletins were in the form of an exami- nation for the students to test their ability to speak correct English. NoRTHE'RN LIGHT S7 4 CHRISTMAS DRIVE For the third time Christmas was made a real Christmas for the inmates of the Spokane Children's Home by the North Central stu- dents. Under the supervision of the social service department of the Boy's Federation and the Girls' League the 90 little inmates were each "adopted" by first period classes. That is, the first period classes obtained the names and ages of the 90 inmates and sent presents to these inmates. The hundreds of toys and dolls were presen- ted Christmas eve, December 24, at a program to which visitors were invited. As a result of the penny drive there was candy for everyone. Not only were there toys, candy and dolls fur- nished to the little ones but also useful clothing was provided. .-,,.wo-- NORTH CENTRAL PRINT SHOP VVith the installation of a model "C" Inter- type machine, the North Central high school print shop became one of the best equipped high school printing shops in the United states. The machine, with three extra maga- zines and a ton of metal, cost 35225. Besides being driven by an electric motor, this machine is equipped with an electric melting pot, a feature which many of the machines do not have. After completing the regular course the students in printing are taught the operation of the Intertype machine by E. E. Green, printing instructor. Many other improvements have also been made in the print shop during the fall semes- ter. Perhaps the most important of these is the 32-inch "Diamond" power paper cutter, which cost 31091. Another important im- provement is a "Boston" wire stitcher. This machine is operated by an electric motor. All machines in the print shop, including the presses, are driven by individual motors. All the printing for school district 81 is done in the North Central shop. The North Cen- tral News has been printed in the shop for the past year, but not until this semester was all the type set there. The "Northern Light" will be the first senior supplement entirely set and printed in the North Central print shop. According to Mr. Green, the print shop is self- supporting. ---o-o--- A JOINT MEETING OF THE LITERARY CLUBS The third annual joint meeting of the Grub Street, Vox Puellarum and Papyrus clubs was held in the reception rooms of the Y. W. C. A. Friday, january 20. Each club contributed two numbers toward the program, one literary and one social. Plans were discussed and common difficulties pre- sented. Approximately 80 members of the organizations were present. The Grub Street, originator of the plan, pre- sided over the meeting, the Vox Puellarum and the Papyrus having presided over previous meetings. The Grub Street club is the boys' literary club of North Central and the Vox Puellarum the girls' club. The Papyrus society is the literary club of Lewis and Clark and is' com- posed of both boys and girls. 58 NORTHERN LIGHT NORTH CENTRAL NEWS EXTRA Nickles, dimes and pennies seemed to flow into the boxes collecting money for the poor children, dolls, toys, clothing and candy were taken by the truck loads to the Childrens' home, candy, nuts and magazines were sent to make Christmas brighter for the old folks at the Spangle poor farmg in fact it seemed that none of the needy would escape the benevo- lence of North Central. However, there were a few forgotton-that is, almost forgotten-for at the "eleventh hour" the North Central News came to their aid. It was learned on Wednesday, two days be- fore school closed for the Christmas vacation, that there were a few students attending North Central who were in need of food and clothing. The responsibility of raising money for this purpose was undertaken by the staff of the North Central News. ,By working over- time 'Wednesday afternoon and evening a four page extra edition of the News was on sale by the fourth period Thursday, at a price of two cents. The paper was smaller than the regular edition of the "News" but it contained nothing but live news. Everyone of the ll00 papers issued was sold, S25 was taken in and the en- tire amount turned over to "charity at home." A ---o-o-.--- GIRLS' LEAGUE HONOR ROLL The names of 154 girls were placed on the final honor roll of the Girls' League for the spring semester. The final honor roll for this semester will not be posted until after the grades have been announced. Eleven girls were on the roll for the fourth time and were presented with silver honor em- blemsfor their merits. Thirteen were on for the third and were placed on the second honor roll. Forty-five bronze emblems were awar- ded to girls who were named for the second time and 85 were placed on the lirst honor roll. In order to be on the Girls' League honor roll a girl must first be recommended by her committee chairman, head of the department of which she is a member or by a member of the faculty and must also fulfill the following requirementsg Qlj work in the league, Q23 at- tend meetings, Q33 have at least C in all stu- dies, Q4j have high ideals expressed in con- duct as: courtesy, honesty, unseltishncss, cleanliness, physical fitness and personality, Q55 observe dress regulations.

Another list is placed on the Girls' League bulletin board from which names may be addedor removed upon proper recommendation of any girl in school. The grades of the girls then remaining on the list are investigated and the final roll made out. ..--019-1. YELLING CONTEST A yelling contest, held October 28 by the Western Royal Live Stock show, was won by Nofth Central's representative, the Rooters' club. The contest, which was the first of its kind held in Spokane and which was open to all the schools of the city and vicinity, was judged according to volume and unison and originality of stunts. According to the judges, the North Central group was superior in all these three points. Q The feature of the Rooters' club program was the club's mascot, "King Grunt," a thor- oughbred Berkshire shoat that had been pur- chased at the stock show, The littie pig, which was lead to the stage by Kenneth Bush, the club president, was introduced by the yell leader, Walter Horn, as "King Grunt." The poor porker, taken by stage fright upon its first public appearance, emitted a series of squeals and squaks which were immediately interpreted by Horn as a call for the royal court and onto the stage rushed 25 leather- lunged Rooters, who, under the leadership of Horn, went through the school yells and formed a human N. C. H. S. upon the giving of the "Locomotive" A purple and gold banner was presented to the winning team. ...,,-o-- BAND AND ORCHESTRA Under the impetus of the new band director, Lowell C. Bradford, and band leader, Thomas Doran, the North Central band now has about 40 members and is one of the best bands North Central has ever had. The organization entertained at the Spangle Old Peoples' Home on December 20, marched in many of the large parades and played at various athletic contests in which North Cen- tral teams were entered. A brass quartet has also been recently or- ganized by Mr. Bradford consisting of the following pieces: mellophone, Mark Bradfordg solo cornet, Ralph Foyg second cornet, Clar- ence Wilkinsong helicon bass, Thomas Doran. The orchestra numbers only about 32 mem- bers but according to C. Olin Rice it is some- what limited in the number of pieces on ac- count of the smallness of the orchestra pit in the auditorium. The orchestra plays at enter- tainments, class plays, baccalaureate exercises, and on various other occasions. There is also an orchestra class under the leadership of Mr. Rice to which students are eligible. For work in this class, students re- ceive one-half credit a semester.

The play, a clever comedy in three acts, by Edith Ellis, scored a triumph for the cast, under the careful direction of Miss Lucile Elliott, dramatic coach. The plot develops around the return home of Hiram Perkins, a "gentleman hobo," after a 10 years' wandering around the world. His wife, Portia, is disgusted with him and offers him a position as "hired girl" at 12 dollars a month, with Thursday afternoons off, keep- ing his real identity from their children and the citizens of the town, who strongly object to her keeping a "man hired girl." Portia Perkins, in waging a fight against a crooked politician through a newspaper which she runs, is threatened violence and her hus- band is nearly the victim of an angry mob, but she saves him when she announces to the mob that he is her husband. Portia and Hiram are happily reunited and their oldest daughter, Lucile, is married .to a rich young man posing as Barrett Sheridan, an actor.

NORTHERN LIGHT 61 " SAUCE FOR THE GOSLINGSU "Sauce for the Goslingsf' a "good speech" play, written and directed by Miss Elgine YVa1'ren, a teacher in the English department, was presented by the North Central faculty November 10, during "Good English" Week. The play, which was one of the most orig- inal staged in North Central, was given before two "capacity" 10-cent convocations and caused much favorable comment from the audience. The action of the play centered about a father and mother of a modern family who demonstrate to their son and daughter the vul- garity and crudeness of slang by adopting it themselves on the occasion of the visit of a guest on whom the children are especially eager to make a good impression. Lucile Elliot director of dramatics la ed , , P Y the part of the daughter, her brother's partner, in the use of slang and poor English. Dr A. H. Benefiel, principal, took the lead- ing part of the father who is driven to taking desperate measures to stop the slangy speech of his children. Gertrude Kaye, a teacher in the mathema- tics department, was the dignified and gracious mother who consents reluctantly to the plan to correct her children's speech. Irving Anschutz, the only student in the play, took the part of the young and energetic son and cause of most of the trouble. Louisa Paterson, a teacher in the English department, was the good-natured grandmot- her Whose fertile brain conceives the plan to correct the speech of the children. M. I. McGuire took the part of the son's friend whose visit makes the working-out of the plan possible. Mr. McGuire is manager of the sporting goods department at Culbert- son's.

At no time during the game did the Idaho boys show a knowledge of the game that com- pared With the clock-like work of the red and black machine. The following week the North Central team traveled to the apple belt and took a 10-7 de- feat from the hands of the VVenatchee high school. North Central made her only touchdown four minutes after play started. After this initial score the N. C. machine was unable to make yardage consistently. Wenatchee managed to cross the red and black goal line in the second quarter by a criss- cross. In the third quarter Glann of Wenat- chee put the ball between the uprights for three more points. In the last few minutes of play North Cen- tral scored a touchdown by an onside kick. Failure of Referee Bangs to see the play cost North Central the score and game. The next team Sam Moyer's boys played were the freshmen fro1n VVashington State college. Outweiged 15 pounds to the man the North Central boys put up a fight and man- aged to score on the "Cougar kittens" four times. But the red and black team was unable to hold the plunging 100-pound "Boots" Shan- non and lost the game 42 to 26. By using straight plunging football the freshmen scored three 'times in the first half. North Central's first score came after they had held the "frosh" for downs on their five- yard line. Henry blocked Shannon's punt and '23 Harrison recovered for a score. Yylashington State college scored three times in the second half also. But the red and black warriors con- tinued hghting and also scored three times. Haynes received a pass and sprinted 25 yards for the second score. Turner recovered a fumble and tore through for the third count and Martin plunged across for the fourth. The next Saturday the team journeyed and played the University of Idaho freshmen. This team proved too strong for the N. C. players and took the game 35-7. Hays, the freshman fullback, starred for the Idaho team, making most of their yardage. North Central's score came in the last minute of play when Aston, the N. C. end recovered a fumble and ran for a touchdown. After three defeats the red and black ma- chine came back and defeated the Walla VValla high school, 28 to O. Captain Berven, who had been out all sea- son with a broken ankle, made his first appear- ance of the season in this game. All of North Central's scores were made in the first half, Martin grabbing off the honors in ground gaining. At no time did the Wa-hi bunch prove dangerous, the N. C. line stopping most of the plays. The last out-of-town game was played at Yakima. North Central won this game, 20-0. North Central managed to score in the first quarter with two forward passes followed by a line plunge by Jones. In the second period North Central advanced the ball to the Yaki- ma 15-yard line but here the Yakima line held. Henry dropped out of center and booted the pigskin between the bars for three points. Un- til all but three minutes of the game had been played neither team was able to gain. Then NoRTHERN LIGHT y g 65 Horn was put in at quarterback. He started out with a 50-yard pass that was completed and placed the ball on the one yard line. A line plunge by Martin carried it over. VVith but one minute to play Ernie Henry intercepted a farward pass and tore 50 yards to be downed finally on his five-yard line. Again Henry dropped out of the line and boot- ed the ball over for three points, the last score of the game. The last game of the season was the annual championship game with Lewis and Clark. Both teams that entered the game were the heaviest scoring machines ever turned out by the two schools, Lewis and Clark having piled up a score of 185 while the N. C. crew had relled up 170 points. The big game was played on a slippery, muddy field with the weight advantages going to Lewis and Clark. A slight wind was blow- ing, which either aided or hindered the punters at times. North Central won the toss and chose to kick, Lewis and Clark defending the south goal. Lewis and Clark received the kick and punted. North Central took the ball down to striking distance but Henry missed a drop-kick. After two line plunges Parmeter went around end for 40 yards. Lewis and Clark made the first score of the game after making yardage by plunging the line, Parmeter going over o-n a criss-cross. VVhite1y missed goal. North Central came back in the second per- iod and plunged to the South Siders' 20-yard line. Henry dropped out of line and hurled a pass to Haynes who went over. Henry con- verted making the score 7-6 in favor of North Central. At the beginning of the second half the N. C. team carried the ball 50 yards down the field by straight football, Haynes carrying the ball over on an off-tackle smash. Henry kicked goal, making the score 14-6. Lewis and Clark scored again after VVhitely made a long end run from the center of the field, placing the ball on the one-yard line. Lewis and 'Clark tried three line smashes but the N. C. linemen would not give an inch. VVhitely finally managed to push the ball across the line on an off-tackle play. Whitely kicked goal and lessened North Centra1's lead to 14 to 13. During the rest of the game the two teams battled evenly in the middle of the field. VVith but thred, minutes to go Horn hurled a pass that was intercepted by Douglas who sprinted for a touchdown. Whitely kicked goal making the score 20 to' 14 for Lewis and Clark. N. C. received the kickoff and punted on the same play, Grant fumbling. Berven re- covered but fell. Lewis and clark men were on him immediately and North Central's chances to score were gone. NVhen the all-star teams were picked by the different coaches and sport writers of the city, North Central had two men who placed on every team and two others who placed on three of the four. Captain Harold Berven was chosen by every authority for a tackle position. Berven has had four years experience at that position. The other N. C. man to place on all the teams was Ernie Henry, for three years the pivot man on the red and black machine. ' Milton Martin was chosen fullback on three of the teams and Cecil Hatton linesman's berth on three of the all-star lineups. Although Captain Berven, tackle, Ernie Henry, center, Walt Horn, quarter, Douglas Brassington, end, Louie Aston, end, and Milton Martin, fullback, will be lost -by grad- uation, Coach Moyer will have six letter men around whom to build his team next year. Letter men who will return to school for the 1922 season are: Turner and Lai1'd, guards, Captain-elect Hatton, tackle, jones, McGrath and Haynes, backfield. ...Urug- BOYS' SVVIMMING MEET The boys' swimming meet for fall '21 was won bv North Central from Lewis and Clark bv a score of 36 to 32.

The game was played in the North Central gym, January 10. The total number of basket ball games played up to January 11 was five, of which the North Central players won four. They have defeated Missoula, Libby, Wenatchee, and Gonzaga, and have been defeated by Coeur d'Alene and Missoula. North Central lost her first game of the season when she went down to defeat before Coeur d'Alene at the Lake City on December 22, by a score of 30 to 16. The play got out of the referees control, and soon became more like football than basket ball. Another game has been scheduled with the Idaho bunch for the North Central gym. From Coeur d'Alene, the red and black squad went to Libby, Montana, where they met and defeated the 1920 Montana cham- pions. The game was won by short snappy passes, and the accurate shooting of the North Central gang. Captain Kent Allen proved a sensation to the spectators when he caged many long baskets and then would follow up with a close shot. The Montana team had been doped to win by at least 15 points, but the strong defense of the Spokane team held their star forwards in check. On December 30, the team went to Missoula for a two game series with that high school. Missoula won the first game after an extra five minute period had been called by Referee 32 to 30. Bierman. The final score was North Central avenged herself in the second game by defeating Missoula by the score of 32 to 29. It was merely a case of too much Kent Allen, as the Red and Black star caged nine baskets throughout the fray. This is the first time the two schools have met in athletic competition. On January 7, the North Central quintet defeated Wenatchee high in the Garden City gym by a score of 28 to 10 in an easy game. NORTHERN LIGHT 67 - The Spokane five took the lead at the start, and easily held it through-out the game. Captain Allen and Walt Horn were the scor- ing stars, although the passing and guarding of Martin, Hatton and McGrath had a big hand in the final outcome. The first game of the city championship series with Lewis and Clark and Gonzaga was played in the North Central gym with Gon- zaga, January 10. The accurate and speedy passing and shooting of Coach Taylor's pro- teges bewildered the Bulldog puppies, who showed an inability to cage the ball when they had an opportunity. Captain Allen shot five goals, while "Goof" Martin was close behind with four. Horn caged two field goals and converted seven out of ten free throws. The regular lineup for the season was, Captain Allen and Walt Horn, forwardsg "Stub" Hatton, center, and "Goof" Martin and Claude McGrath, guards. Substitutes were Mitchell, Olsen, Flake and Burkett. --o-,,,,... GIRLS' BASKETBALL Under the direction of Miss Hazel Smith, new assistant girls' gym director, a girls' inter- class basket ball series was held during the early part of November. The series was won by the senior team of which Edith Grobe was captain. The teazn remained undefeated throughout the tournament and as a result each member was awarded a regulation girls' letter. The junior loopers who lost two games gained sec- ond honors and received their class numerals. Eleanor I-Iyslop was captain of the Junior line- up. Marcella Brainard captained the sopho- more loop stars and Thelma Jacobson headed the freshman girls. The scores of the games were as follows: Seniors ...,..................,.....

GIRLS' TENNIS Taking advantage of the several weeks of favorable weather in th early part of the se- mester, 21 girl racketeers, under the direction of Eleanor Hyslop, girls' tennis manager, par- ticipated in a girls' ranking tennis tournament. The tournament was held during October and the earlyzpart of November. In November it was necessary to discontinue any further com- petition on account of weather conditions. Play will be continued in the spring with the competitors continuing from the places which they held when the tournament was stopped. Edith Grobe, a member of the tennis team which met the Lewis and Clark net stars last spring, led the field of entrants when the tour- nament closed. Those holding the next four places in order named are: Stella Powell, Edith Leaf, Helen I-Iuneke and Elna An- derson. ' From among those entering the tournament will be chosen the team which will meet the Lewis and Clark girls in the spring. Among the girls in the January class who have taken an active part in the girls' tennis activities are: Mary Porter, Edith Freeborg and Isabel Roberts. Miss Porter and Miss Freeborg are letter winners in the sport. ,.,,..,,-L. GOLF CUP In order to determine the golf champion of the school, Athletic Director S. L. Moyer staged a golf tourney for the boys in the school early in the fall, which was won by Harold "Mutt,' Hatcher, a freshman. Hatcher won a silver loving cup offered to the winner by Ware Brothers. He met and defeated Petty in the first round and Brogger in the second, but met his hardest opposition when he met Becker, whom he defeated 3 to 2. He won over Ward Hare in the finals by the same score. ...o.o... CROSS COUNTRY Although Captain Virgil Franklin took first place, North Central was defeated in the sixth annual cross-country race with Lewis and Clark held October 28 over the open course in the northeast part of the city. The score was the closest in years, Lewis and Clark as p NoRTHERN LIGHT - having 25 points to North Central's 30 points. The North Central runners finished in the following order: Franklin, first, George An- derson, fifth, Claybon Lipscomb, seventhg Murray Hamley, eighth, and John Smith, ninth. At a meeting of the cross-country letter men George Anderson, a freshman, was elect- ed captain of the team for the 1922 season. Six letters were awarded for the sport this year, these going to Captain Franklin, Captain- elect Anderson, Lipscomb, Hamley, Smith and Manager Russell Wetherell. All the letter men will return next fall, with the exception of Lipscomb, who will graduate with the june class. ....o.,,,.. GIRLS' DANCING Girls in the dancing classes have taken part in a number of entertainments during the se- mester, including the operetta, the Foch en- tertainment, the Spangle program and a number of minor programs at school. In the operetta two dances, coached by Miss Elsa Pinkham, girls' gymnasium director, were given, one an Egyptian dance and the other a flower dance. Five North Central girls danced at the ban- quet given in honor ,of Marshal Foch. Among the girls in the class who have taken an active part in dancing are: Zona Hubbel, Bernice Witt, Ruth Hamlin, Elizabeth Poole, Lucile Edgington, Florence MacCulloch and Zella Jacobson. 10.0.- 4 WATER CARNIVAL The second semi-annual water carnival was presented October 21, . both afternoon and evening, in the school plunge by the Aquatic club. The carnival is put on twice every year by the swimmers. An interesting program was presented be- fore a large crowd at each performance. The feature was a mixed relay of two teams, each lineup composed of two boys and two girls. Diving by a "Masked Marvel" drew many laughs, while a water polo game also held the interest of the spectators. Other events on the program were the water boxing, a duck chase, medley race, tug-o'-war, horse fight, egg and spoon race and candle race. ....,,.,.... DELTA HONOR AWARD Each year the Delta club of North Central awards a medal to the most valuable man in each of the four major sports, football, basket ball, baseball and track. The player who receives this honor award is chosen by a committee composed of Dr. A. H. Benefiel, F. G. Kennedy, L. C. Bradford, the Delta Grandmaster and the coach of the sport in which the medal is to be awarded. To qualify for the award a player must have playing ability, personality, loyalty, persever- ance and sportsmanship and must observe training rules. This year the award was given to Milton Martin, the fullback on the 1921 team. Martin was the mainstay of the red and black offen- sive this year. He starred in every game, al- ways being able to make at least a few yards. Martin is one of the most popular athletes in school having won the award last year in bas- ket ball. He was captain of basket ball last season and was elected captain of the 1922 track team. 10.0-.- LEWISTON SWIMMING The North Central Aquatic club placed high team score and also won the Lewiston water polo challenge cup in the Lewiston water car- nival held last july 22, 23, 24. Captain Verne Cunningham and Orville Peterson were high point winners of the meet. The club polo team, composed of Peterson, Cunningham, Aston, Haynes, Turner and Jones, defeated the local Y. M. C. A. in a series of games for the championship cup, which must be won again before it becomes the permanent possession of the school. The names of the team have been engraved on the cup, which has been put on display in the school trophy case. The club will probably send a represent- ative team to defend the cup at the next carnival. --o--o-- TENNIS TOURNAMENT From the start of school in the fall, Tennis Coach John Shaw conducted a ranking tennis tournament. Every boy in school was eligible for the competition. Matches were played every night after school on the courts of the city playgrounds until about two months ago, when weather conditions compelled the closing of the tourney. The final standing of the first ten players in the tournament is as followsz' Calhoun, Shinkle, Bock, Allen, Foy, Carney, Conklin, Dietrich, P. Carswell and Shafer. This semester is Mr. Shaw's first as a mem- ber of the North Central faculty, although he is a graduate of this institution. He was prominent in tennis and debate work at North Central, from where he went to Washington and Jefferson university. He was a member of the A. E. F. in France and was selected by his captain for a scholarship in a university in Liverpool. After finishing this course he came direct to North Central, where he accepted a position in the history department.

XVhat seemed to him a paradise, VVas to sit on the ocean's bank And give vent to childhoodmemories, As the waves the beach did spank. ....Yet one sunny morn when all was still, Out on the horizon line, He sighted a girl on a soap box Adrift on the,i5cean's brine.

The photos show them in attitudes of crime and were taken by Life's photographer at a great risk of his life. If any of the group had discovered a spy photographer hov - ering near him, he would probably have made a print of the poor fellow on the spot. We shall tell a little of the history of each as we consider them, according to their con- vict numbers. Class A--Moderately Vicious A-1326-4-Wesley Robs'em.

All during the years that Bailey drove his flivver he was in danger, now, since he has given that up, he is a little "safer," B-1426-4-"I-Iairoil" Harding. A bad man from the bad lands is Harding.

MEDICAL SECTION Edited by Dr. Caska Rett. Scientifically speaking, probably the most important discovery in scientific fields this year was the one of the perfume eating bac- ciliate germ. This little squirm, or worm, was found feeding on a piece of fresh limburger in a Jewish restaurant in Dublin, Ireland. The tiny insect, or reduced-reptile, was in a frenzy of haste and probably a trifle dizzy. Better worms than this little perfume eating bacciliate ?D6-3 exif.. , O - ' I 'ai - A -'ll germ have been rendered dizzy by the savory limburger, and in one instance in Osh Kosh, VVisconsin, Professor Hunter Pulse discovered a squeaking hooch bug laying prostrate on a hunk of this Dutch incense. But getting back to this little perfume eater, after injecting a few hops onto the tiny being's right hoof it at once began to chirp and eat the fringe of the shirt of it's inventor and savior, The Dishonor- able Mike Roscope, B. C., a. W. o. 1. The fol- lowing photograph, taken under the greatest NORTHERN LIGHT 75 1 of difficulties, is a true facsimile of the little dear as it was taking its noonday nap, previous to its taking its afternoon sprint. Did you notice the expression of absolute contentment on the complexion of the little thing? It is very, very happy in its new life of repose, and devotes all of its time to the tasting of had scents and playing poker with Mike. Mike has become very attached to the little svveetg in fact, the other day the little 76 NORTHERN LIGHT y dickens tif I may be allowed to usepthat ex- pressionj got so attached to Mike that he was somewhat inclined to believe that the little insect was one of those man-devouring cooties, instead of a peaceable little perfume eating bacciliate germ. g LITERARY SECTION fDevoted to the reviewing of the works of famous authorsy "The Terrible Peck and Hunt System," or "Ten Nights in The News Office." By H. Adolph Brassard. In the early years of Mr. I!rassard's life, during his sojourn as editor of a great many magazines and periodicals, he was an ardent supporter of the "peck and hunt" system of typewriting. His opinions on this method of QW wi A A igz jf . 1 QM. ty pewriting' were changeu suddenly, however, one night. Mr. Brassard had been taxing his brain to its remotest extent, and as the hour was late and he had spent the weary day in writing weary editorials, he fell asleep at his typewriter. Bye and bye he' began to dream. He dreamed he was at a typewriter in a high school news writing class and was sitting serenely on the editor's desk when the editor came in, sat down and began to pound him fthe typewriterj. Mr. Rrassard spent a hor- rible hour, being pounded by an exponent of the "hunt and peck" system. After this dream M r. Iirassard has devoted his time and literary skill to the defeat of the "hunt and peck" sys- tem of typewriting. This book is very inter- esting and is keyed to the highest point of excitement.

The opera was a military-millinery affair in two acts and had its setting in the gardens of the Chateau of Malmaison early in the nine- teenth century where Empress Josephine of France and her ladies are lamenting the fact that a scarcity of funds prevents their obtain- ing new gowns for the ball in honor of the Italian Deputation to be given at the Opera. Those taking the parts of sleuths are as fol- lows: Walton Hone, first sleuthg Louie Ash- lock, second sleuthg Prentice Balch, third sleuth. Those in the chorus were: Helen Brooks, Thelma Davis, Georgia Eells, Esther Garrett, Joyce Grier, Christena Habura, Helen John- son, Vera Johnson, Denise Larson, Margaret Murphy, Marjorie Monfort, Bessie McCul lough, Lorraine Morgan, Dorothy Matters, Marjorie Peterson, Hettie Peterson, Fay Put- nam, Geraldine Peck, Elizabeth Pefly, Beulah Parrill, Helen Russum, Gineta Snyder, Dor- iothv Stafford, Lucile VVhitmore, Ruth Ylfoll- muth, Maurice Balfour , John Czxrpcuter, Verne Cunningham, Harold Darst, James Heaton, Loren Haynes, Elmer Hix, George Jennings, Harter Markwood, Robert Pritch- ard, Carl Reichert, LeRoy Riddle, Phillip Roche and Harry Setters. An oriental dance in the hrst act was well presented by tive girls in characteristic cos- tume with Rebecca Mcl-Ienry leading. Her assistants were Elizabeth Poole, Madeline Devereaux, Arcelia Gibney and Grace Robin-- son. A garden dance between the acts by 14 girls was very daintily presented. The entire production was a revelation of personal talent and careful directing and came up to the high standard set by former operet- tas. ......o,o..... FRENCH EVENING "A French Evening" was presented under the auspices of the Sans Souci society the eve- ning of December 2 in the North Central aud- itorium to a small but appreciative audience. The program which was almost entirely in French drew much praise from an audience in which there were many French people. Girl ushers attired in French peasant cos- tumes, who greeted in the French language all who attended, lent a decidedly French atmos- phere to the entertainment. , V W ew Year Greetings ITH the passing of the holiday season with its Yuletide festivities, family re-unions, etc., we bid farewell to the old year and welcome the new one. In expressing appreciation to North Central Students for past favors, we desire to call attention to our "Saturday Specials" "The Palm" will offer a 2 pound box of our famous high qual- ity Chocolates for 81.25. These Chocolates have heretofore retailed at a dollar per pound, but in order to extend our field of operations and in- troduce our Candies into a greater number of homes, this spe- cial box of two pounds for 31.25 will be offered every Satur- day during the remaining winter months.

"The Edge- cliff sanitarium is asking for a program to- night.

"Ask the Delta Trio" has invariably been the answer. The Delta Trio, which was organized in thc spring of 1921, primarily for the use of the Delta club, has become one of the most popu- lar and consistent entertainers of the year. Because of their willingness to help out on hurry-up calls, as well as regular entertain- ments, the trio has made a great many friends. They have sung at all sorts of social functions, from benefit teas to Chamber of Commerce banquets, and have never failed to score a hit. The trio is composed of Fred Marshall, O. Leighton Bailey Cmanagerj and George Pat- ton. Bailey and Marshall are both members of this year's graduating class. A great deal of the credit for the trio's successful season is due to Marshall, who is one of the best comedians the school has ever produced.

BLACK AND WHITE HAT SHOP K I NORTHERN LIGHT PEP CARNIVAL The second annual "Red and Black Pep Carnival" was conducted in North Central by the Associated Students Council during the afternoon and evening of November 25. The carnival was the largest undertaking of the Associated Students Council and was perhaps the most successful carnival ever held. Over S700 was taken in from the 2500 persons who attended. There were 29 booths and conces- sions conducted by the clubs and organiza- tions of the school. A vaudeville show by the Masque club was the best attended of con- cessions, this club heading the list of gate re- ceipts with a total of S99.75. Two student managers, Grace Glasser from the Girls' League and Kenneth Bush from the Boys' Federation, had charge of the carnival. The object of the carnival was to arouse "pep" for the Lewis and Clark-North Central football game on the following day. From the fact that it was almost impossible to get the crowd to leave at ll o'clock, the time set for closing, and from the number of megaphones and pennants sold, the carnival was as much a success from the "pep" point of view as from the financial point of view.

The "Frolic" is given for the purpose of welcoming the freshmen of the school and has been under the direction of the Delta club since time immemorial. More than 150 freshmen were entertained at the "Fro1ic" this fall in the gym, September 23. It was indeed a frolic. Every device in the gym which was capable of furnishing amusement was constantly in use. After the freshmen had entertained themselves for a while, Grandmaster Martin officially wel- comed them to North Central. Following the address, several rounds of good, live boxing were enjoyed by the fresh- men. The Delta Trio made its first appear- ance of the semester and officially introduced Fred Marshall, the school's comedian. The final feature of the evening was a "feed" in the cafeteria. Football tactics were employed by some of the boys in an attempt to get into line, but fortunately no one was seriously injured in the wild scramble. ,GHG-- '22: "In what course do you hope to graduate ?"

These contests are open to all students who have tak- en or are taking Geometry II or Algebra II. The winner of either contest is awarded a sil- ver loving cup and has his name engraved on the Mathematics club trophy plate where the names of all contest winners are recorded. The algebra contest held this fall was won by Irene Lindberg, a junior B and student in Algebra II. There were 60 who entered the contest after school at 3 o'clock, December 14, and by 6 o'clock 26 problems had been given, eliminating all but three, Miss Lindberg, Frank Van Wagnen and Edmund Craney. It re- quired the missing of three problems to elim- inate a contestant. The contest was continued December 15, when three more problems were necessary to disqualify first Edmund Craney and then Frank Van Wagnen. The loving cup was pre- sented to Miss Lindberg du1'ing a convocation a short time after the contest. ...,,-oT I-Ie: "At last I've got you alone."

A novel idea was carried out in making the introductions. Two lines of Voxers were formed in the gym and the freshies were lined up in pairs outside. Each girl was requested to greet one of the club members in some original manner. Many different methods were illustrated, among them the Chinese, Hindu, Mohammedan and Dutch fashion. Several of the new girls embarrassed the club members by kissing them. After the girls had been introduced a pro- gram, consisting of singing, reading and danc- ing, was enjoyed by all. Following the pro- gram a raid was made on the eats. judging from the amount of food consumed thegirls must have had a good time. ..,..o....o-.- Love and porous plaster, son, Are very much alike, It's simple getting into one, But getting out - Good-night. - Punch Bowl.

Besides hot soup every day, three other hot dishes are served daily. All forms of sandwiches, including "hot dogs" and 'Kham- burgers," are on the menu every day. All dishes, including salads, ice cream, cake, pie, cookies and milk sell for five cents. According to Mrs. Agnes VVeber, who is in charge of the cafeteria this semester, the cafe- teria has been making money. There are three women working in the kitchen. A great deal of the dish washing, washing of tables and general cleaning up about the cafeteria, is done by students for their lunches. The serving is also done by students. In connection with the cafeteria a candy counter is run under the supervision of Miss C. D. Hitchcock.

This directory, which is the second of its kind, was edited by a special committee appointed from the Associated Councils and was prepared "in order that all students may have at hand information about things of importance concerning the schoolf' Although the contents of the book were compiled during the summer, an accident to the new stitcher enroute to the school print shop delayed the binding and distribution. The handbook is purely a North Central product as all the work connected with setting up, print- ing and binding was done in the school shop. Among the useful things which form the contents of the "Red and Black Booki' are a school calendar, room directory, a section de- voted to athletic records, the officers and pur- pose of all the clubs and organizations, a list of school songs and yells and a section devoted to "Timely Hints" which is of aid to new stu- dents.

Treasurer, '22 Chroniclers' club LIFE '93 To the preacher life's a sermon, To the joker it's a jest, To the miser life is money, To the Ioafer it is rest. 'Ilo the lawyer life's a trialg To the poet life's a song, To the doctor life's a patient That needs treatment right along. To the soldier life's a battle, To the teacher life's a school, Life's a good thing to the grafter, It's a failure to a fool. To the man upon the engine Life's a long and heavy grade: It's a gamble to the gambler, To the merchant life is trade. Life is but a long vacation To the man who loves his work: Life's an everlasting effort To shun duty-to the shirk, To the earnest Christian worker Life's a story ever newg Life is what we try to make it- BROTHER, what is life to you? --CONTRIBUTED :I TALAHI 31 CLASS WILL '33 We of the June class of 1922 having comp- leted our courses in North Central Qwithin three to six yearsj do respectfully and in some cases disrespectfully bequeath the following to the January class and to anyone else who has been so fortunate as to be mentioned in this time honored testimonial. We leave the harmony QPU of the Delta trio to the next semester's trio. We also leave all the vegetables they have accumulated dur- ing the past semester to Ive's dog house so that they will not have to buy any cabbage, carrots and onions for their soup. Wegleaye, A. J. Collins' cast-off jokes to "Inky"iHenneberg so that, with the aid of these, he may run one good column. CVVhiz Bang Juniorj. We leave the News staff's uncanny ability for creating and unearthing scandal to Mr. Benson's prodigies. We leave Carl Clifford's bea-u-u-tiful com- lexion to Lois Byler so that she may save "blushing expenses". We leave Orville Peterson's collection of swimming medals to Leslie Grahm so that at the next National Guard parade he will have a few more decorations for his manly chest. We leave the ability of Ernest Henry to create false impressions to Jack Grover so that he may some day convince somebody that he is "hard". For sale-one permanent wave. For future particulars see Donald Wallace Carswell.C paid advertisementj . We leave Charles Hill's parking space to Sam Moyer's "Little Glass Bottle on Wheels." We leave the surplus avoirdupois of Prent- ice Balch to "Silver" Jones so that in the fu- ture he may be able to till three places instead of two in the rear rank of Company B. We leave William "Foundation" Tousey. to anyone who wants IT. We were wondering how N. C. was going to get along without us but since "Foundation" isn't going to graduate with us we know that the school will st-ruggle along somehow. 'We leave "Goof" Martin's 'fgift of gab" to Kent Allen so that if Kent ever gets to be a senior A he may be able to make himself heard in class meetings as "Goof" does. VVe leave the freshman class to Frank .len- kins, that is, if Ed Rule doesn't come back as a post-graduate. VVe leave Hubert Besly's ability as a stage hand to Don Jones, hoping that Don will thus make more stage scenes and less street scenes. VVe leave Dwight Snyder and Louise Clau- sin to themselves. We leave Edwin "Valentino" McHenry's shiny-coal black locks to Hendrick Gunderson VV e leave the News staff's coat-hooks to the skippers' club. This hardly seems necessary though, for they have possession of them al- ready. We leave VValter Horn's football suit to Paul Smithson and we sincerely hope that, with the aid of this, he may at least make the fourth team next fall. VVe leave Douglas Brassington's and Luke Watson's baseball shoes to anyone whom they will Ht. We leave George Patton's dignified look to Paul Carswell. We hope that the January class of 1923 will have no hard feelinges toward us because we will be unable to leave them Don Byersdorf, Orin Matlock, "Bill" Rendle and Ernie Henry, as has been the custom of the last three grad- uating classes. VVe leave our best wishes to every one in North Central. C Signedj FRANK EATON, Chairman ORVILLE PETERSON , TALAHI CLASS HISTCDRY Now come, thou classmates fair and free, Come gather here and list to me, VVho am called to tell class history, Of a valiant band two hundred strong, Who entered into these halls of learning f VVith faltering steps and faces burning, Looking about to left and right, Always wrong, do what we might, 'Til to our classes we were shown And not allowed the halls to roam, Stumbling up the flights of stairs And into class rooms, unaware That it might be algebra, not English. VVe for greenness became distinguished. Then came to bring much pain and sorrow, The flu, upon the morrow, Placing a ban upon our students, To keep well each one did use prudence. lVe were sophomores big and strong, And none dared say, were in the wrong. VVe were organized that year And we chose our sturdy leaders here. Vacation time was come and gone, For another seige, ten months long, The freshies and sophomores to us bow Because we were upper classmen now. A shield we chose for strength and power To help us through at every hour. Then was every one delighted As our new swimming tank was sighted. Alas, we were on last flights, Only a few more days and nights. We are honored seniors now, To study harder is our vow. To the Temple we do troop And with others we are grouped, I With singing, dancing and a band- It was a banquet big and grandg Then upon the dreary morrow All our hearts are filled with sorrow VVhen we hear that we have lost Doctor Benefiel, whom we love most. He was a leader fine and true, And he played life's game right straight through. A play is given which is supreme, T he butler and maid are both a scream, Then to Liberty Lake for fun, VVhere we all eat pie and cake and buns, At night we all are very tired And are quite ready to retire. Then comes the clay when all do roar At foolish freshie days of yore, F or we are all just kids once more. Alas, school days have come and gone, VVe have finished the way so hard and long, But we never, never shall forget, And I know that none of us regret, The happy days that we have spent, ,At North Central.

Business Adviser JUNE, 1922 I GO TO COLLEGE It's true that statistics are tiresome, but have you ever looked over any that concern college people as compared to those who quit school when they have received their high school di- plomas P Perhaps you haven't, but just the same, the fact remains that the college men and women are the people who "get there " and who have the most chance to be great successes in their chosen lines of work. This much you would find out from any successful business man with Whom you might talkg statistics are not the only means of proof. Your business man may not have been graduated from a college himself, but his advice would almost invariably be an emphatic "Yes, go to college if there is any possible chance of getting there." You don't even have to have anyone tell you about it. just pick out some particular person whom you consider a success, and try to find out about him for yourself. Do it for several people. In the majority of cases you will discover that they have had some special training above their common school work. Of course, there are a few exceptions. And, at any rate, it would be a safe wager that these very exceptions would now be only too ready to advise a college course for success. While you are receiving valuable training, you are also getting enjoyment out of college life. If you like athletics, college can fulfill your wants. You'll find that there is a great deal of social life mixed in with the school work too, a friendly social life, with common interests and jolly good times. College and college life are not really as remote as we sometimes think they are. They are just as real and attainable as anything else you could make up your mind to have. Some people believe in going to a profes- sional fortune teller to find out whether they are going to get something they want. And how does the fortune teller answer? She usu- ally can tell most about you by just reading characteristics that tell whether you are a very determined person or not. Why go to the for- tune teller at all? You ought to know Whether you want a thing. badly enough to be deter- mined to get it. Then you ought to know as much about it as the fortune teller does. --o-cr-- THE GRADUATES OUTLOOK Not until one has actually graduated from school does he realize in what manner his education has benefited him. The average student has seen or heard the statistics that bring to view the value of an education. Some of them even promise him a better chance at large salaried positions than- an uneducated person could possibly have. However, the student as a rule does not pay much attention to these statements although he does not ques- tion them. But it is not until he feels the touch of the diploma in his hand that he fully real- izes What high school has meant to him. The graduate upon leaving school has a feel- ing of security, a certain confidence in his ability. He believes in himself and has assur- ance that he can be an equal for almost every TALAHI 35 situation. With this feeling he steps into the world and usually developes into a reputable character. The hindering qualities of conceit, selfishness and egotism are soon rounded off by that famous man-trainer, Experience. Ass- ociation with all classes of people gives the high school graduate an inspiration to do things, whereas it affects the uneducated per- son very little. Today's schoolboy does big things. No one can deny that the students of today accomplish things that would have appeared impossible thirty years ago or more. So we can expect proportionately big things from them in the future. They will have the same Spirit of con fidence in the future that they now have in high school, but will not be mingled with the inferior qualities that have found their way into the makeup of some young men of today. Education has improved itself in the last fifty years and has also improved the student. The graduate's outlook is exceptional and he will not fail to realize its possibilities. T....oTo.l. A FAREVVELL Although it seems almost a scheduled oc- currence that another class is graduating from North Central, it is not with that feeling that we leave the life we have led during the last four years to go on to an indefinite future. True, the world seems to have golden oppor- tunities and yet we are loathe to leave the atmosphere of our education. Come what may to the members of the class of june 1922, they will always hold in their memories the notable things which have come to their notice during their time spent at North Central. Although they carry the school spirit out into the world with them, it is often that they will wish they were back again to join in some of the unmerous activities for which the school is famous. This is a world of progress so we will expect to find our successors surpassing the marks we have attempted to make for ourselves in scholastic and other activities. We wish them the best of opportunities and we hope that our own fortune may be worthy of associating with what we wish them after we step out from North Central. .,,0.-al CHARACTER Character in a man is very similar to quality in a piece of clothing. A man's worth and value are determined largely by his character, and the value of a commodity is also deter- mined by its character or nature. The one big difference between men and material in this connection is that the type of goods can often and easily be disguised, while the nature of a man is stamped on his countenance. The prin- ciples for which he stands and the way in which he follows those principles show in his face and exvpression. As a rule, the person who delights in making fun of other people in a sarcastic way usually has very few of the qualities for which he re- bukes his associates. Most often his remarks are made in jest, but how much better he would appear and how much more use he would be to the world if he spent his time in some other way. Character is discernable in the uneducated as well as those who have been fortunate enough to attend some institute of knowledge. The non-intellectual who stands by his princi- ples of life is of far more value to the world in general than the educated person with little scruples concerning his conduct or association with others. The makeup of a man is the first important thing to look after when attempting to diagnose his requirements for life. After all, the man's the thing. ' --o-o-- TALAHI For several years the senior supplement of the North Central News has acquired various titles. Some six different names have been used in heading the senior book. As the cus- tom in most schools is to have a permanent title for such a publication, the News staff at- tempted to Hnd a suitable name for its sup- plement. Because of an agreement with Lewis and Clark several years ago which prohibited theaf publishing of any magazine with the name of "Tamarack," it was impossible to use that name. Also the title "En Avant" seemed rather out of place as very few knew the meaning of this title. So, in order to secure a permanent name, the staff held a prize con- test offering S5 for the best suggestion. About thirty names were turned in, which showed the lack of interest of the student body. Of these none was fit for the purpose. Finally, however, the Indian word "Talahi" was decided upon because of its euphonious sound, it being pronounced fta-la'-heej, and because of its meaning. The word has been translated to mean "Mighty as an Oak", and as this confirms with the spirit of North Central, the word "Talahi" was selected as the title. The staff hopes that the following people in charge will not see fit to change this name. 36 TALAHI NORTH CENTRAL News STAFF f N ErneSt Henry ..... Kerfl' Allen .......... IvAn Benson ...,..

During the spring vaca- tion the doctor contracted cold while he was attending a Rotary convention at Vancouver, B. C. The cold developed into pneumonia and he came home immediately. 3 Dr. Beneliel's home town was Davenport, Iowa, Where he was born on March 17, 1873. After completing his high school course, he served as a clerk in a United States post office. He worked his way through the University of Michigan and graduated from that institution with honors. He taught botany during his last two years in college. After his graduation in ss TALAHI , 1899, he was married and, with his wife, went to Des Moines where the two studied csteo- pathy. The couple opened an office in Lake City, Iowa, after completing their course. Here they remained for three years. Then the doc- tor came west to Bellingham, Wash., where he remained for a short time before coming to Spokane. He practiced osteopathy here for another three years and then entered the faculty of the old South Central high school as an instructor in physics and botany. When the construction of the North Central high school was completed in 1909, Dr. Bene- fiel was chosen as head of the science depart- ment under Herman Beare. In 1914 he was appointed vice principal under R. T. Har- greaves and held that position until the fall of 1918 when he was selected to succeed Mr. Hargreaves as head of the school. Dr. Beneliel was knight commander, Court of Honor, of the Scottish Rite, the second highest honor in masonry. Also he was senior warden of the Lodge of Perfection, another high honor. The Spokane Rotary club had elected him as their president in the week pre- ceding his death. His prominence was indi- cated by his being associated with the Spokane Historical society, the Camp Fire Girls' coun- cil, the University club and the Spokane Bird club. -CEO- THE FINAL TRIBUTE In final tribute to North Centra1's beloved leader, Dr. A. H. Benehel, 2000 students marched, four abreast, from high school to the Masonic Temple where the docter lay in state on April 14, 1922. As the long line of boys and girls, headed by the presidents of the Boys' Federation and the Girls' League, marched toward the temple no spoken word was heard but in praise or re- membrance of the kindness and fairness of him, our lost leader. Dr. Benefiel, who some of us had known for years as a friend and counselor, will not be for- gotten. Even those who had been in the school only a short time thought of him as a friend. The last time he spoke to us as our principal he spoke of his confidence in us, and true to his confidence we shall carry on the school motto, "En Avant." VVe called him "Doc" because he was our pal. Almost every one in that long line, which passed by him in final tribute, could remember him in some personal way, and each of us felt the loss deeper and keener than words could express. He was proud of us and all North Central stood for. Even though that still figure did not recognize us, we felt that his spirit did know. The thought which was left with us at the funeral service, that at the bend of life's highway we will again clasp his hand in tender love and affection, was one of hope and promise. Now as never before we realize the wisdom of his judgment. It was always from our standpoint and for our interest that he gave his decisions. The beautiful floral tributes, which were sent by the many friends, and organizations of the school, were only an outward expression of the grief we felt. The purity of the Easter lilies banked with delicate pink carnations and roses was our final gift of love and affection to the best friend we ever had. 07 WORLD WAR MEMORIAL In tribute to the former North Central boys who served in the World war, a memorial tab- let of bronze was dedicated in a 'special con- vocation on Tuesday, February 21, 1922. The clubs and organizations of the school contributed S550 to the memorial in the spring of 1920. Relatives of the soldiers and former students helped to raise the fund of 5151000 that was needed for the bronze tablet. The re- mainder of the money was secured by a spe- cial convocation and from the interest re- ceived on the money that was in the bank. "In honor of the boys of North Central high school who answered America's call in the war for democracy and in tender memory of those who died in their country's service," are the words inscribed on the tablet above the names of those who gave their lives. The following names are on the tablet: Vlfilliam Merritt Penrose, '15, died October 11, 1918, at Camp Gordon, Georgia. Harry Barsch, '16, died in Siberia, Septem- ber 22, 1918. Jerome Arthur Bierce, '14, was killed in ac- tion at Chateau Thierry, May 1918. J. Clarence Dignan, '16, was killed in action October 1918. Vtfilliam F. Dollarhite, '15, died October 8 1920, at Camp Funstan, Fort Riley, Kansas. E. Kenneth Lee, '15, died August 27, 1917, at Camp Lewis. Edward Delmar Stack, '16, died August 11 1919, at Mare Island. Frank Joseph Paterka, '18, died November 16, 1918. i 7 I TALAHI 39 UNVEILING op TABLET Ernest J. Rouff, '16, was killed in action, September 2, 1918. "We meet today to do honor to those boys who answered the call to the colors and espe- cially to those boys who payed the supreme sacrifice." said VVesley Robson in a talk on "The Signifiicance of the Tablet." "In the fall of 1914 the Germans started the greatest of all wars. Unheard of means of warfare were used by them. The war-crazed Huns did not stop at wholesale murder but stopped even to bomb hospitals and ships car- rying wounded soldiers. Not even neutral vessels with innocent women and children were safe on the high seas. "At last America woke up to the fact that France and England were waging the war for the preservation of civilation and democracy. Thus she entered the war in self defense, knowing that she must help crush Germany or be ruled by a corrupt militarism. Six hundred and fifteen of our best boys from North Cent- ral answered America's call to arms, together with millions of other boys from all parts of America. Within a short time these boys were scattered across the earth. "Nine of the finest and noblest of the school's leaders paid the supreme sacrifice. To these we owe our deepest gratitude. May God care for them and reward them. "Long ago some one felt the meaning of taps and expressed it in these words: 'Fades the light, And afar Goeth the dayp Cometh the night, And a star Leadeth all, Speedeth all To their rest.' " At the close of Robson's talk, taps were sounded. Singing of the "Star Spangled Ban- ner" closed the dedication exercises. After the convocation the students passed in review before the bronze memorial tablet which was unveiled in the east hallway. On both sides of the tablet two soldiers stood at parade rest. As each student passed he saluted the flag. The soldiers, who are mem- bers of company B, l6lst regiment of the Na- tional Guards were: Corporals XVayne Stauf- fer and James Matchetteg Sergeant Leslie Grahamg and Private Henry Setters. 40 ,TALAHI ENOCH E. ENGDAHL Enoch E. Engdahl, one of North Central's truest friends and president of the school board, met instant death in an automobile ac- cident which occurred near Colfax, May 25. Mr. Engdahl, who was born in Sweden, Qctober 23, 1874, came to America in 1889 and settled in Minneapolis. Although he was a poor boy and in a strange country he be- came manager of a wood working plant at Blue Earth, Minn., after working five and a half years in various lumber companies. In 1901 he came to Spokane and worked in the lumber business. He was superintendent of the Spokane-Idaho lumber company and or- ganized the Post Falls Sash and Door com- pany. Six' months later he organized the Spo- kane Sash and Door company and had been president, manager and owner of the company for the last two years. He was a director of the National Savings and Loan association and owned a large farm in Stevens county. Mr. Engdahl was president of the board of directors of the Scandia hos- pital. He was a 32 degree Mason and be- longed to the El Katif temple of Mystic Shrine, Spokane lodge No. 228, B. P. 0. E., the Scandinavian Brotherhood and the Span- ish-American war veterans. Mr. Engdahl had been a member of the school board for six years and president of the board for two terms. The largest number of votes that were ever received by one candidate in a school election were received by him this spring when he was reelected to the school board. Every student of North Central respects and honors the memory of Enoch Engdahl. School athletics were of particular interest to him and the boys on the teams thought of him as a good comrade. The VVednesday before his death he entertained the boys on the baseball team at the Davenport hotel. The interests of the students were always the interest of Mr. Engdahl, who was one of the best friends that Noith Central has ever had. . X ,X AVVAY We can not say, and we will not say That he is dead. He is just away! With a cheery smile, and a wave of the hand, He has wandered into an unknown land, And left us dreaming how very fair It needs must be, since he lingers there. And you--Oh, you, who the wildest yearn For the old-time step and the glad return- Think of him faringon, as dear In the love of There as the love of Here. -James Whitcomb Riley i- TALAHI 41 Iairieilealley W I 1' I 'f I -, Y IW l, VT 4 1" f 1 ii :1 rf'--'N 1-G- - .

C. I-I. S., January, 1920. . Dear Aunt Agatha: How could you possibly have known that a little silver wrist-watch, engraved with my initials, was just exactly what I had been praying for ever and ever so long--since three Weeks before Christmas, when I saw the dear- est one, and wanted it, oh, so badly? All the other girls have them, and I'm so glad that the kind fairy who watches over me and my doings, whispered in your ear that I was nearly dying for one, too. Santa Claus was very good to me this Christmas. He persuaded my tender-hearted English teacher to give me "A," so I might be on the honor roll, and he brought me heaps of lovely things. But, just think, Aunt Agatha, this is the first year that daddy hasn't given me a doll as his present. Instead he got me a Bible! It's really a beautiful Bible, but I do miss my dolly, even though I am supposed to be a big girl now, thirteen years old, and a freshman A in high school, inter- ested in more intellectual things than dolls. Isn't intellectual a nice big word? I love to use big words like that, because they sound so grown-up and dignified. Were you careful. to notice the A after freshman? It's very important, for it means that I am not an insignificant little freshie any longer. I can't begin to tell you how awful it is to be that, auntie. I never realized how dreadful it was until I became a fresh- man A. I had lots of fun when I was a freshie, though. It seems so long ago now. One is so much more grown up after a whole semester at high school. I have been trying to persuade mother to let me do up my hair, but she can't see it that way. She still insists that I'm only a little girl, while at school they -teach me that I should act like a young lady. Now, how can I act like a young lady with my hair in a pig- tail down my back? I wouldn't like to bob it, 'cause then I would look like a child, but I want to do it up with puffs, and rats, and everything. And, aunty, I do wish you would tell mother that she ought to shorten my skirts. They're so long they are actually ridiculous. All the big girls wear theirs shorter than mine. I want to be grown up, too. Grandma says that if I ever intend to be a lady, I'll have to improve my language some- what. She is dreadfully perticular tis that the right Way to spell that?Q about my gram- mar. Yesterday when I fell down the cellar steps with six'eggs, and smashed 'em all, I said, "Well, for goodnight sakesl". And she acted as if I was swearing or something ter- rible. I've heard lots of people older than I say worse things than that. They were seniors in high school, too. You know, aunty, this is the best high school in the city. I'm so glad I go here in- stead of Lewis and Clark. I really feel sorry for the poor seniors who have to graduate and leave. I guess some of them are sorry, too, because they are going to stay several years longer, instead of graduating now. I'm having a hard time trying to decide what to do when I graduate. I can't make up my mind whether to be a motion picture actress or a great author. VVhich would you say? I s'pose grandma would have a fit if I was a movie actress. She thinks they are all wicked and have absolutely no earthly chance of saving their souls. She wants me to be a 42 TALAHI. - missionary and go to Africa. But I don't think I want to be gobbled up by the cannibals yet awhile. , Oh, aunty, I'll tell you a secret if you'll solemnly promise not to tell a living soul. I stepped out the other night! You see, I was going to the operetta with my chum, Alice, and then her brother joe asked me if I wouldn't like to go with him. You should have heard my heart flutter! I said, "We-ell, I'd like to, but I told Alice I'd go with her." But joe said never mind, weid take Alice along with us, so I said "all right." I was terribly afraid to tell mother when I went home. I put it off until time to get ready, and then I said, "Mother, when Alice and I go to the operetta tonight-why, her brother joe doesnit have anyone to go with, and he wants to go with us. Donit you think it our duty to take him?', Mother laughed and laughed, and I could just feel my face grow- ing red. But she just kissed me, and said she thought it was very nice of us to be willing to take joe. Never mind, though, the next time we go, joe and I aren't going to take his sister or anybody's sister along. It's way past my bedtime, and Iive just about talked my head off, so I guess I'd better stop. Daddy says my tongue is split at both ends, and it never does quit wagging. I hope you'll write me a nice long letter soon, Aunt Agatha. Your letters are always so interest- ing, LOVingly, PEGGY. -.o..,-,.. SOPI-IOMORE Dear Aunty, ' I-Iere it is after Christmas again, and I haven't written you for over a year. But you know I am a sophomore now, and there cer- tainly is a great deal of responsibility resting upon a sophomore's shoulders. The fresh- men this year were so small and, of course, We upper classmen must take it upon ourselves to see that they don't get into trouble. Deary me, how long ago it seems since I was a fresh- man. But now that I am a sophomore I see life in a different aspect than I did when I was a young and carefree freshman. You know, aunty, I think I am getting pop- ular. The other day Mrs. Fox called me by n1y first name! The girls say that is a sure sign of popularity. I forget just what she said--something about "Stop giggling or youlll spend the rest of the period in the office,"- but that doesn't matter. It's just the idea that she noticed me enough to know my first name. After that, I'm expecting an invitation to the Delta or VVox Pullerum QI think that is the way they spell it-it's a French namej clubs. They are the big clubs of the school. The Delta sure is a peachy club. Hard to get into, too. All the popular girls of the school belong to it. Believe me, when you're a sopho- more you know just about all there is to know about the school clubs and things like that. By the way, aunty, isn't a sophomore an upper classman? VVhy, of course they are, but the teachers inthis school don't think so. just on account of their ignorance of what an upper classman is, I got into a bunch of trouble the other day. The bulletin in the morning said that all upper classmen were to go to convocation at the end of the third period on signal of two bells. Well, when the bells rang, of course I went to con Cthat's a phrase all the popular kids usej. The next day I Was called into the office and told to stay an hour after school for two whole eve- nings for skipping the fourth. Did you ever hear of such a thing? I was positively stricken dumb. Two hours after school for being the only person in the school that knew the r1gnt meaning of upper classmen. But I stayed. Yesterday I was abstained from the privi- lege of using the library. In other words I was "kicked out". They only kicked me out because I was talking to another girl about my lesson. Can you imagine? Talk about your lesson and you get the "razz." But that isn't the worst of it. When he handed me the card to sign he said, "You freshmen will have to learn not to talk so much." I was insulted. Calling me a freshman. ME! with my hair done up and Mrs. Fox knowing my first name. But I guess he just entered school. That is the only reason I know to explain why he doesn't know that I'm a sopho- more. Oh, I forgot to thank you for that lovely rough neck sweater. It was just what I want- ed. All the popular girls have them. I can hardly wait for the baseball season to open so that I can wear it to the game. There goes the period bell, so I'll have to stop Writing. I'm going out and walk up and down the main hall a couple of times. All the popular kids do. Well, by-by dear Aunt Agatha. Your loving niece, PEGGY. -o-0? JUNIOR Dearest Aunty Agatha, ' I will take a few moments while the baby still sleeps to write to you. Mother has left the baby in my care while she goes shopping. The longest he has slept at one stretch is ten minutes. Between times, I have my choice of being deafened or violently pushing the buggy about the building. Nothing gentle will lull him to sleepy I suppose you think I am horrid for writing like this about my baby brother, but anhour of this sort of life has embittered me. TALAHI 43 ,, Oh, aunty! How lovely of you to think of sending me a camera. No one else remem- bered my pleas and my pocket money isn't elastic enough to cover such a purchase. It's exactly the size I wanted. I was so disap- pointed when I didn't get one in my stocking Christmas time that I nearly wept on the mail man's shoulder when he brought this to me. Thank you ever and ever so much. I'm enclosing the first snapshot that I took with my camera. It's one of Chauncey NValker. Don't you think he's good looking? You can't tell from the picture what color his eyes are. They are blue, a deep, deep blue, the color the ocean was in fair weather when we were at Palm Beach last summer. The little dots above his lip are the cute little mustache that he's developing. Someone had teased him about it just before the picture was snapped. That's why he's looking so gloomy. Usually he is very gay and sparkling. High school life doesn't agree with me very well, I guess. It's outrageous when it comes to the point where I have to stay at home from a dance to study Latin. Caesar makes me sick! Always telling about what he did, as though we care to know. And it seems to me that when I've spent a whole year in stow- ing away vocabulary, he can at least use the words that I've learned and not talk Greek. We are to have a gym exhibition next week. I'm in a dumb-bell exercise. It goes some- thing like this: Madly cut the air upward with dumb-bells. Swing them heavily downward. Throw yourstlf violently forward on one foot. Poise in air birdlike an instant, with arms out- stretched. Drop to your knees. jump upon one foot and touch floor with dumb-bells with- out making noise. Throw both hands straight above head and drop to knees. And so on. It is quite pathetic to see us pant and sweat, while our director utters maledictions upon us as we topple over in our efforts. I wager that more than one fond relative wipes away a tear on that fatal night. The Greek club had its elections at the last meeting. Lucille Smith, who plays the saxo- phone divinely and simply floats through a dance, is vice president. Your most humble servant is secretary. I just managed to get it by voting for myself. I began going out for basket ball this year, but gave it up. There was a certain girl on the other side who always picked the ball right out of my hands. At first, I wou1dn't lower myself by mentioning it to her. Finally, how- ever, she grew so horrid that I asked her if she wouldn't please let me discover how it felt to hold the ball once-in-a-while. She looked at me as if she thought I had gone insane. Later, when I asked her if she thought she was the whole game, she grew so sarcastic that I stopped. I'm going out for tennis next semester, though. At least, there won't be more than two players, so I can't help but have the ball occasionally. VVell, a cry of grief arrests me. Thank you again for the darling camera. I'll get some- one to snap me when I am in the dumb-bell drill poised as a bird for flight, my two arms outspread, my two hands holding the dumb- bells. If the snapshots look characteristic, I'll send one. Your affectionate niece, PEGGY. SENIOR My dear Aunt Agatha, A week from now and I shall be a "sweet girl graduate"-think of it, aunty dear. I know about all there is to know, in the way of geometry, history, physics, Spanish, etc. Mother tells me that she wishes to goodness I knew a little more about keeping my bureau drawers tidy, and doing up the Saturday's work right, but then she doesn't understand. So few people really do understand that 'fSat- urday's work," and "tidy drawersv are the non-essentials of life-aren't they? I find that a free mind such as mine is con- stantly hampered by these plebian Qisn't that a lovely wordj intellects, that dwell on the lower strata that has to do with washing dishes, sweeping floors, and masticating food. I love to think along nobler lines such as,- as-Well, you know what I mean, nobler lines that make you think: "Build thou more stately mansions oh my soul !" I've forgotten just who wrote it, but I think it was Shakespeare, or some French author. Now that graduation is so near, I must de- cide what line I shall go into, what position I shall take, and what salary I shall demand. Bob says that he bets I'l1 have to advance the money to get the boss to let me stay around- but then, he is crude. Even if he is my brother, I must say that there are times when he is crude. The other night when Tom and I were coming home from the class play re- hearsal, we stopped for a moment at the gate. just then Bob opened the front door and yelled--he didn't even have the decency to speak in a modulated voicev"Say, Peg, Bugs Qhe's Bob's dogj is sick, awful sick. Pa said that we had better try your cake on him before the rest of the family ate any, to be on the safe side. VVe got him down cellar now feed- ing him mustard and water. Itls a good thing that none of us ate any, ain't it PM VVasn't that terrible? Of course, there was nothing the matter with the dog, even if the cake wasn't very good. I forgot the baking powder, or soda, or something like that. How- ever, I was so mortified. I told mother that she just simply would have to speak to Bob, that it was terrible to think that I should be so 44 TALAI-II embarrassed before my friends. Bob said that it was nothing to the embarrassment that Bugs felt after he ate that cake. I swept out of the room and refused to answer. But speaking of positions,-aunty, what do you think I had better take up. I would like to be a nurse,-I tried on May Ellen's uni- form, and it looked just too sweet. I might be a social worker, if I knew where I was to be sent. I really believe that I would prefer to be a private secretary to the president of a railroadg though Bob says that there is no use of my considering a job that requires brains. He is trying at times, but I try to ignore him as best as I can. I am really sorry to leave school. Of course, we have the best class that has ever graduated. I don't really see how the school will get along without us after we leave. The underclassmen look so small and incompetent. The principal and the teachers will miss us too-they are just beginning to realize how in- tellectual we are. I heard one teacher say to another the other day: "Oh, pass them! Pass them! You can't teach them anything any- way. They could stay here for eight years without getting any more than they have now." - What do you think about my going to col- lege, aunty. Dad says that I had better stay at home and learn something now that I have finished high school, but he doesn't realize what he is saying. I may not be able to go to college next year, but I do hope to go the year afterwards. One thing that I know that I shall not do, and that is to be a school teacher. It must be terrible to live the life that they do. Some- times I don't see how they can bear to exist. Daddy was going to get me a pearl ring for graduation, but he says that he is broke from buying me so many clothes, and that we will likely have to move to Spangle before the year is over. I was awfully disappointed about the ring, because I did want one so badly. However, I shall bear it bravely. I must close now to try on my graduation dress. It is white organdie-very simple. We are not allowed to have silk. I wish I could see you, aunty dear, and talk to you about education and life. YOU have been buffeted by the world's stormy blasts, and would un- derstand your Affectionate niece, PEGGY. P. S.-The pearl ring just came. It is just too sweet. Thanks a hundred times. Bob said that if you knew me as well as he did, you would likely 'send me a case of lemons. . . I girly: :gtk ,X . . -FJ, 4:54 Wifi, jaw- 5 .'.',f 'eff were mf' C -xi?

Q.-+-P-: "' .- ' rnmvg ' ' ' ' A ' ' . l E FREDERIC G. KENNEDY Frederic G. Kennedy, who was appointed to suc- ceed Dr. A. H. Benefiel, was born in Villisca, Iowa, on july 20, 1879. As a boy he did all the things that Briggs says happened in the "Days of Real Sport." He received his early training in Villisca and after graduating from high school he completed an apprenticeship in his father's printing office. He then attended Simpson college at Indianola, Iowa, for four years and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. After graduation he took a position as editor of a small Iowa newspaperg then followed two years of high school teaching in the science department of the lndianola public schools, more newspaper work and then the west. Arriving in Spokane in August, 1906, he looked over the field and found the old South Central look- ing for a S5000 football coach and a S1000 science teacher. Both jobs were accepted at once at the latter salary and continued with various degrees of success for five years. When the school was divided he came to North Central and was made head of the science department in 1913 and held that position until 1918 when he was appointed vice principal of North Central.

The purpose of the league is summarized as follows: Clj To provide a medium through which the group of girls, as a unit, may learn to work for the common good, either as leaders or in- telligent followers. i QZJ To crystalize the best opinion and highest standards of the girls of the school into definitely acknowledged standards for the league. Q35 To provide an organization for the necessary girls' activities. Q45 Through the departments and commit- tees, to give each girl an opportunity for the development of initiative, personal respons- ibility and originality. Every girl in North Central high school automatically becomes a member of the league by her enrollment in school. The officers are president, vice-president, secretary and trea- surer, chosen by the girls in elections conduct- ed according to civic procedure at the end of each semester. The central council, the executive body of the league, meets every two weeks. It is com- posed of the four general officers, the four girl leaders of each department, class room representatives, the faculty advisor of each department and the 'girls' advisor. The council conducts elections, cares for all funds, prepares business for general meet- ings for all girls, manages the dress regulations adopted by the girls, promotes high standards of scholarship and conducts and supervises the league honor roll. At the end of each sem- ester, the names of all girls in school who have fulfilled the requirements are placed on the honor roll. The requirements are: flj VVork in the league, QZD attendance at meetings, Q35 at least C in all studiesg C45 high ideals expressed in conduct, as courtesy, honesty, unselfishness, cleanliness, physical fit- ness, personality, observation of dress regula- tions. Those whose names have appeared on the honor roll two, four and six times receive bronze, silver or gold pins in form of the league emblem. The league is divided into four departments, the social service, entertainment, personal effi- ciency and vocational. Each department is organized with a girl director, a secretary and faculty advisor. The social service department carries on the service work of the school such as Thanks' giving and Christmas donations, and super vises the work for the childrens' home. Its work in the school consists of helping the girls who are weak in studies. It has charge of the seating and conduct of the girls in convocation. The entertainment department gives parties for the girls of the school and sends programs to the childrens' home, Edgecliff sanitarium, and the juvenile detention home. The vocational department gives programs for the eighth grade students, and also brings speakers to talk to the girls in convocation. The personal efficiency department takes charge of all the hikes that are given for the the girls and also provides a girl for each period of the day to have charge of the girls' rest room. All girls' athletics are in charge of this department. -o-oi BOYS' FEDERATION L. C. BRADFORD, Director. The Boys' Federation was organized in No- vember, 19l3, primarily for the purpose of permitting the boys of the school to meet the obligations of the nation in the time of war. During the war, the federation took part in such drives as, Red Cross, Y. M. C. A., special relief and thrift. At the conclusion of the war, the federation was reorganized to meet peace requirements. The Boys' Federation is divided into three de- partments: school service, community service and personal service. The school service department cares for the needs of the school and has organized the fire squad, traffic squad, Rooters' club, and the tickets, usher, locker and news folding com- mittees. E The community service department has co- operated with city enterprises and the Girls' League in philanthropy by giving programs at the Children's home, Spangle old folks' home, parental home and Edgecliff. It has also spon- sered two grammar school declamation con- tests, which were open to all grade schools on the North Side. 'The personal service department has tried to meet the needs of the students. It centra- lizes its work through the fellowship commit- tee, which collects information of the boys in need, either because of trouble with authori- ties, or in studies. It attempts to meet their needs through the relief and scholarship com- mittees. The personal service department has reached over 200 boys this semester. oio,,... HOME ECONOMICS DEPARTMENT Miss CARRIE Hrrcncock, Head The home economics course extends through four years. The first and third years are devoted to the study of foods, while the second and fourth years are given to the g4S TALAHI study of clothing. During the first year, one day a week is given to home nursing fthis course is given by a regular trained nurse, furnished by the American Red Crossj and during the second, third and fourth years one day a week is given to related fine arts. The aim of the course is to develop in the girl an appreciation of the importance of home making as woman's highest vocation, to de- velop the ability to recognize the problems of everyday life, both in the home and in the community, to develop a scientinc attitude toward the selection, purchasing and care of food and clothing and their relation to health and happiness. The course is planned to give the girl, for whom education ends with high school, train- ing that will enable her to be a more useful member of her family and community, and the girl who goes to college a foundation for her more extensive study in home economics. There are 365 girls taking work in this de- partment, of whom 189 are enrolled in the food classes, and 167 in the clothing classes. The department is equipped with three clothing laboratories, two food laboratories, a well equipped laundry, a dining room and a fine arts room. GIRLS' PHYSICAL TRAINING Miss ELSA M. PINKHAM, Director Every girl in North Central is enrolled in the physical training department, and she is required to take one period a week of gym- nasium and one period of swimming. In the fall, about 150 girls turned out for basket ball, and the best and most efhcient players were picked for their respective class teams. In the baseball series which was con- ducted in the spring, about 250 girls turned out. Miss Hazel J. Smith, girls' assistant phy- sical director, coached these two sports. The girls also organized a swimming squad, out of which girls were chosen to swim in their class meet. The girls hold the annual swim- ming meet with Lewis and Clark high school every spring. Each year two ranking tennis tournaments are conducted in the school, one in the fall and the other in the spring of the year. Those players ranking highest in the tournament are chosen to represent the girls' team in the an- nual tennis meet wiah Lewis and Clark high school. Miss Elsa M. Pinkham, who is director of the girls' physical training department, coaches the dancing for the operetta and also the danc- ing for the May day exercises of which she has charge. This department had charge of a girls' physical training exhibition which was held in the school gymnasium this spring. The revue was under the direction of Miss Pink- ham, who was assisted by Miss Smith. O 0 VOCATIONAL DEPARTMENT Miss NELLE VV1LsoN The vocational department is one of the most interesting and active divisions of North Central. The purpose of the department is to secure positions for students who need work after school hours, to offer educational and vocational guidance, to help the students se- lect their courses of study, and to advise them concerning college work and requirements. Courses in vocational training are given to all freshman boys and girls and every fresh- man is interviewed and a vocational card is Hlled out for him or her. Near the close of each semester there are sent to each of the North Side grade schools, one boy and one girl from the upper classes of North Central to explain the high school to the future students as well as to tell them about the school in general. An interesting and important feature of the vocational department is the self-analysis ques- tions which are given out once a year to the students. Also mental or intelligence tests are becoming very prominent in the depart- ment's activities. ...o..0.,r- MATHEMATICS DEPARTMENT VV. VV. JONES, Head Everyone is required to take at least two years of mathematics, which consists of alge- bra and plane geometry, except those who are enrolled in the home economics and commer- cial courses. Mathematics can be taken throughout the four years if elected. The four year course consists of algebra, plane geometry, intermed- iate algebra, solid geometry, trignometry and analytic geometry. This spring six students signed up for ana- lytic geometry but there were only four who stayed in the class. All students who were exceptionally good algebra I this semester were allowed to take algebra II and III together, making two cred- its in mathematics this semester. Those stu- dents who failed' in algebra I were classified in three classes, better, intermediate and poor, and were placed in special retarding classes. Those in the better class were allowed to make up their algebra I credit and take up algebra II. Those students who were in the interme- diate and poor classes were put in special classes where they could receive special atten- tion, so they would make their algebra I credit. TALAHI ICU-AR i M TALAHI ASSOCIATED STUDENT COUNCILS Miss Iizssuz GIBSON and L. C. BRADFORD, Directors The Associated Student councils was organized in March, 1921, being composed of the executeive coun- cils of the Girls' League and the Boys' Federation, for the purpose of working out together the problems which directly concern all the studentsof the school. One of the largest undertakings which the as- sociated coucils has attempted was the Pep Carnival, which was held at the high school, Friday, November 26, the day before the football game with Lewis and Clark. Over S700 was taken in by the booths and attractions. This year the Associated Student councils has made a great effort tO Compile satisfactorily what is known Chairman ............

At Christmas time they adopted families to whom they gave a real Christmas. They conducted the drive for the sale of Chrismas seals for the Anti-Tuberculosis League, aided in the Poppy sale for disabled soldiers and per- formed other services too numerous to mention.

A varied program of dances, exercises and marching furnished an interesting evening. The apparatus work, in which about 30 girls participated, included jumping, travelling the rings, jumping the buck and climbing the ropes. The girls who were chosen from the school at large showed skill and training in their work. The special dancing class gave a Spanish dance, "La Tziganef' which was well received by the audience. The marching tactics by the girls from the sophomore and senior classes gave a demonstration of ability to carry out orders. The girls from the special dancing class gave a Grecian dance, "Bagatelle," in which the girls were costumed in dainty dresses of colored silks. About 50 sophomore and jun- ior girls took part in the dumb-bell exercises. The Russian dance, "Kamrinskaia," proved a clever number which was presented by the girls from the sophomore class. Girls from every class except the freshman took part in the athletic dance, "T he jumping jack." The girls were costumed in pretty suits of black with red pom poms. The swinging of the Indian clubs by girls from the senior and junior classes was well received and showed splendid training and skill in prepara- tion. Another attractive feature of the evening was "The Fire Flyv dance, in which about 20 girls took part. They were costumed in dresses of red tulle and they entered the dark- ened gymnasium carrying lights which cast shadows across the room. One of the most attractive numbers was the swinging of electric Indian clubs by Miss Pinkham. The wand drill exercises by girls from the junior classes were well received by the audience. Much credit for the success of the exhibi- tion is due Miss Pinkham and her assistant, Miss Hazel Smith, who planned and coached the various numbers and exercises in the exhibition. The music for the evening was furnished by an orchestra composed of the following: Margery Segessenmann, Lillian Bogardus, Ralph Foy, L. C. Bradford, Dorothy and Catherine Robinson. .,.-0-.o SPRING FEVER The Radio club of North Central presented the lirst of its semi-annual vaudeville shows, "Spring Fever," in the school auditorium on Tuesday evening, May 23. An interesting feature of the evening was the radiophone concert from the Doerr-Mit- chell company's transmitting station. Vocal and piano numbers by Ray Grombacher and Homer McDonald, of the Liberty theater, were transmitted. The music could be heard plainly in the auditorium. The receiving set was furnished by North Central students and the Pacific Telegraph institute. Roy Welch, president of the Radio club, gave a clever clog dance and the comedians introduced several new jokes and original skits. Mary Burke and Genvieve Green gave a dance. The music was furnished by Sherer's tive-piece orchestra. The purpose of the show was to raise money to be used toward purchasing a C, W. trans- mitting set for the school. 66 TALAHI DELTA I-II-JINX The annual Hi-Jinx, given by the Delta club, was presented in the school auditorium Friday and Saturday nights, May 5 and 6. A record crowd attended both evenings and the entertainment was one of the most succesful ever put on by the society. One of the features of the evening was the presenting of Prince Mahbub Ali, Q Thom- as Astonj by Otto B. Shot and Hammond Eg- ger, QT. G. Aston, senior, and Walter Horny. Questions asked by the audience and answered by the prince uncovered family affairs as well as "school gossip." The banjo duets by Bob Green and Ray Lower, graduates of North Central, included melodious and popular jazz pieces. One of the cleverest numbers of the danc- ing revue was the Dutch dance, by Rebecca McHenry and Irmen Gibney, dressed in Dutch costumes. Frank Howard and Jerry VVilson were in an act of song and jokes. Mr. Willet Itch, fRex Heathj gave several impersonations of popular comedians. The Delta Trio, George Patton, Frank Eaton and Ingwald I-Ienneberg, sang several songs. The last act was a one-act farce, "A Close Shave," by George M.Baker. Crusty, fMilton Martinj a man of means, aids Tonser,a barber, QWalter Hornj to marry a rich girl whom he later learns is his daughter. He then proves himself to be a good fellow by telling Tonser to sell his shop and come home. Others taking part in the farce were: Simper fM3fSh3l1 Smithj 5 Mike McGinnis, assistant barber fLy- man Haynesj, Zeb, a colored apprentice Orville Petersonj, and heavyface, a hypochon- driac fInky Hennebergj. The music was by the "Novelty Four." --o-o-4 TEACI-IER'S INSTITUTE Educators and teachers, numbering over 2500, attended the 25th annual session of the Inland Empire Teachers' association which was held at the Lewis and Clark high school on Aprin 5, 6 and 7. Many representatives from Montana, Ore- gon, Idaho and all parts of Washington came to Spokane during the spring vacation to at- tend the conference. The special attractions of the convention were the addresses and talks made by prom- inent educators from all parts of the Empire. I TRAFFIC SQUAD L. C. BRADFQRD, Director President ............................................................ Ralph Foy The traffic squad is composed of 20 boys whose duty is to regulate traffic by keeping those in the halls moving, between periods. Charles Hill is student Student Director ........................t... Clarence Wilkenson supervisor of the squad. Though the squad has exist- ed for only a short time, it is known as a live group 'of fellows. TALAH1 67- Discussions on special topics of the day proved to be an interesting feature of the convention. Miss Jessie E. Gibson, girls' adviser at North Central, was chairman of one of the sessions. Miss Gibson led in a round table discussion on "Character Building in the High School." A report on the mathematical section of the convention was made by Miss Gertrude Kaye, mathametics teacher in North Central. Miss Margery Segessenmann, president of the Girls',League at North Central, spoke on the "Girls' Organizations in the High Schools from the Students, Standpointf' Several chairmen and secretaries of various departments in the association were chosen from Spokane representatives. Hal Orien, boys' physical director at Lewis and Clark, was elected chairman of the physical educa- tion section. Miss Elsa M. Pinkham, girls' physical director at North Central, was elected secretary of hte section to succeed S. L. Moyer. "The Jumping-jack," a dance given at the institute on Thursday, April 6, under the direction of Miss Pinkham was one of the most attractive events on the program, accord- ing to reports from all who saw the dance. ..?0io.l. .. THE DELTA TRIO The Delta club's Delta Trio, composed of Frank Eaton, Ingwald Henneberg and George Patton, has been unusually successful this term. The trio was organized in the spring of 1921 to be an advertisement for the Delta club, but since has developed into a source of entertain- ment for many business organizations and lodges as Well as for many different North Central programs. ' During the first quarter, the trio sang for one week at Whiteheadls dancing palace. Later they appeared at the American legion and also sang for the Kiwanis club. Under the direction of Fred Marshall and O. Leighton Bailey, January '22, a novelty act was staged for the Delta Hi-Jinx, which was Well received by the audience. Two members, Frank Eaton and George Patton, graduate with the class of june '22, leaving two vacancies to be filled by other men from the Delta club. -o-o-l FRENCH CONTEST The annual French contest, under the aus- pices of the Sans Souci, was held in North Central May 5. First prize of 5155 was given to Ethel Waltz and second prize of S3 was given to Evelyn Hellem. Any North Central student having had three semesters of French was eligible to enter the contest. All the questions were given in French and were answered in French. The contest was conducted as a regular examination. Three judges decided which were the best papers. The student receiving the highest per- centage Won the first prize of S5. Members of the French club were ineligible to compete for prizes but could receive hon- orable mention. The purpose of the contest was to promote interest in French among the students of North Central. ...,,,.,,.... MAY DAY EXERCISES May Day Exercises in the North Central auditorium were opened this year with the singing of a cantata, "The Song of Spring," by a chorus of girls who were directed by C. Olin Rice, director of the music department of the school. The cantata is the first of its kind ever presented in North Central. Following the cantata, the representatives of the senior class, Dorothy Bloom, Orville Peterson, Claudia McGinnis, Milton Martin, Virginia Flynne and John Barnes led the pro- cession Which entered from the rear of the auditorium and marched in couples to the stage. At the foot of the stairs the couples formed an aisle through which the king and queen, George Patton and Madeline Flynne, with the atendants passed. The queen who was daintily attired in a white silk dress with a satin train carried a shower bouquet of white roses. Her atten- dants wore silk and organdie dresses of con- trasting colors and carried corsage bouquets of roses and sweet peas. When the king and queen were seated in their bower of flowers, the members of the royal procession took their places on the stage. Lillian Finley and Georgiana Harding then danced a Grecian dance after which they crowned the king and queen. A trombone solo was given by Everett Nel- son and Geraldine Peck gave the "Fire Fly" dance. T - After the violin solo by Leo Kailin the royal party made their exit march from the stage. -,,..o.,. VVALLA WALLA CONTEST The W'alla Walla high school won the an- nual declamation contest, held at Walla Walla on March 24. This is the third consecutive victory for the Wa-Hi contestants. The North Central team was defeated in the oratorical and dramatic divisions but won the judges' decision in the humorous division. Weldon Schimke gave the selection, "The Slow Race," which was the only point winner for the red and black squad. "Penrod's Afflic- tion" was the humorous number given by Edith Huntsman of Wa-Hi, 68 TALAHI John Thomas of Walla VValla delivered the oration, "VVhy We Fight Germany," which was awarded first place over "Peace in the Pacific," given by Don Cary Smith for North Central. Madolyn Devereaux, North Central con- testant in the dramatic division, received one judge's vote for "A Thing of Beauty" while Constance Hurspool, VVa-Hi, took two votes for a scene from "Across the Border." Tod,-. TYPEWRITING CONTEST Bronze medals were awarded by the Under- wood Typewriter company for the passing of the Underwood typewriting test in speed and accuracy. The contest was conducted in the North Central typewriting rooms under the direction of A. O. Strieter. May Minor was the only student from a class of 26 contestants who succeeded in writ- ing 60 words a minute and she received a medal with two bars. Every student who participated in the test was required to write continuously for 15 minutes at the rate of 40 words a minute. For every error 10 words were deducted and each student was allowed 10 mistakes before being dropped from the contest. Those making 40 words a minute were awarded a bronze medal. Those making 50 words a minute had a bar added to the medal. --o-o-- THE SCHOOL SAVINGS BANK The problem of thrift among the high school students was solved at last by the school sav- ings bank, established in North Central a year ago. The necessity of some system to encour- age students to save their money rather than spend it for unnecessary things has been felt. The fact that the students were, hitherto, un- able .to go to the banks during business hours, has caused many students to neglect saving their money, and the result was that the money was soon spent. But there is no inconvenience caused by the school bank, since money can be deposited before school, during lunch periods and after school, in room 109 in any day of the school year. The money taken in at the school is kept in the Security State bank. All deposits are safe- guarded. In order to have a complete record of the deposits, duplicate deposit slips must be made out by the student. One is kept at the school and the other is sent to the bank. Mon- ey can only be Withdrawn through the Security State bank. Deposits on accounts can be made during the summer vacation. Thus deposits may be increased or withdrawn when school is not in session. BAND AND ORCHESTRA The band and the orchestra are two active musical organizations in North Central. The band under the direction of Lowell C. Bradford and band leader, Clarence Wilken- son, now has about 40 members and is one of the best bands North Central has ever had. The organization took part in many of the school activities, and played at the various athletic contests in which North Central took part during the year. The orchestra, under the direction of C. Olin Rice, now has 32 members. The orch- estra members are chosen by Mr. Rice at try- outs held each semester. The orchestra play- ed at the home-products show in the Culbert- son department store and also playe dat the class plays, baccalaureate exercises and commencement exercises. 1,,.,,.... BENEFIEL MEMORIAL FUND A memorial committee was formed for the purpose of collecting money for the Benefiel memorial fund, in honor of the late Dr. A. H. Benefiel. The memorial committee made plans where by everyone in North Central had an oppor- tunity to donate to the fund. The clubs and organizations donated to the fund also. The Boys' Federation pledged 5100, the Girls' League S250 in Liberty bonds and the senior B class SSO. Pledge cards and cash payments were re- ceived during the convocation held May 16 for that purpose. A bronze tablet to be erected in the lower hall has been ordered by the committee. The following are members of the commit- tee :, Miss Jessie Oldt, chairmang L. C. Brad- ford, Dorothy Kippen and Lawrence Mitchell. The two students were chosen from the As- sociated Students council to represent the stu- dents on the memorial committee. -i GEOMETRY CONTEST The ninth annual geometry contest, con- ducted by the Mathematics club, was held Tuesday, May 23, in room 214. Mildred Wing- er, a sophmore A, won the contest after two hours of computations. Approximately 25 students participated in the contest. Each contestant was allowed three mistakes before being dropped from the con- test. Thirty-one problems were required to determine the winner of the contest. Miss Winger was presented with a silver cup in convocation in June. Last spring the contest was won by May Johnson and the year before by May Phinney. TALAHI 69 " CLARENCE " The senior class play, which was presented May 19, 1922, in the North Central auditor- ium, proved to be one of the most successful plays ever given in the school. The play was a clever comedy in four acts written by Booth Tarkington and was under the direction of Miss Lucile Elliott, dramatic coach. The play centers around Clarence, a re- turned soldier, and Violet Pinney, a governess in the Wheeler home. Clarence in seeking employment, and after learning all the family affairs in the Wheeler home, is given a job as handy man. Bobby and Cora VVheeler ask many foolish questions of Clarence and believe he should know everything because he has been in the army. Complications arise over Clar- ence's last name. Mr. Wheeler says his name is Smun, while Miss Pinney insists that it is Moon. Mr. Stem, the villian, accuses Clarence of being Charles Short, who is being hunted by the government for deserting the army. Clarence, however, is none of these but is Clarence Smith, an authority on beetles. Clar- ence is given back his former job and he pro- poses to Miss Pinney by asking if her trunk is ready. She accepts the proposal and they live happily ever after. Those in the cast were: Violet Pinney, Mad- eline Flynneg Clarence, George Patton, Mr. Wheeler, Ward Davison g Mrs. Wheeler, Grace Glasser 5' Bobby, Edwin McHenry 5 Della, Catherine Hunt 3 Dinwiddie, Orin Matlock, Hubert Stem, Frank Eaton 3 Mrs. Martyn, Dorothy Leonard, Cora, Grace Robinson. The businees staff for the class play were: Ralph lessen, business managerg Orin Matlock and Dorothy Leonard were in charge of the propertiesg Catherine Hunt, wardrobe mis- tressg cues, Lorraine Morgan 3 scenery, Thorn- ton Roberts. ...,,..,,.... SENIOR PICNIC All morning of Friday, June 9, the seniors were alternatly experiencing thrills of uneasi- ness and of pleasureg but as noon drew near, they gave sighs of relief, for the sun came out as if to stay permanently for the rest of the day. The special train which took the seniors to Liberty Lake was compelled to stop more than once on the way to take on belated students. After a time though, the last of the students was on the train and comfortably seated with but one exception. One of the higher memb- ers of the class encountered difficulties with the top of the train, and was compelled to lie down in the aisle to keep from damaging the roof. Amusements of all sorts were indulged in, when once the whole party had arrived at the lake. Speeches, jokes and songs were a part of an extemporaneous program. Orville Pe- terson and Kent Allen were in the midst of the fun. Mrs. Fox and Ernie Henry won the peanut race 5 each receiving as a prize the peanuts he and she had carried. You may well imagine how many peanuts Ernie ate. Margery Seges- senmann and Frank Eaton won the endurance contest for talking, while George Daniel easily won the pencil chewing contest. A few picknickers were on the lake in some rather leaky canoes. They solved the problem of keeping the water out by carrying a pail to bail it out. Orie Matlock proved himself very able to empty a canoe-but not by bailing it out. just as the picknickers were in the midst of the fun, raindrops began to fall. The result- ing scene reminded an on-looker of a number of chickens running in every derection for shelter-until the shower passed. A few of the students were not as successful as the rest, and by the time they had found shelter the rain had stopped and the unfortunate shelter- seekers were rather damp. Bobbed hair came out of curl, pressed suits became unpressedg and various means were necessary to restore everything to proper condition. ' About the time the damages of the rain were repaired, the members of the refreshment com- mittee were sorely perplexed when they found that about half of the provisions were missing. Everyone began to search, andafter a uarter of an hour, the president of the senior A class calmly reported that he had seen a member of the senior B class selling some of the supplies to some people at Liberty Lake. It was later found that Walter himself had hidden the sup- plies and then sat by to watch the others search for them. Plates were filled with sandwiches, salad, pickles and a glass or cup of lemonade. The hungrey picnickers soon made way with every crumb and were ready for the ice cream and cake. Virginia Flynne and Lorraine Mor- gan put pepper on their ice cream to make it warm. Owing to the fact that lunch was not served until late in the afternoon Carrol Mon- fort wondered when the picnic was to begin. After lunch extemporaneous speeches were given by Tommy Aston and Jacob Goetz. The object of the speeches was to enlighten the audience-on small things! Especially on things to throw, including bouquets of onions and wads of gum. Music from the dance hall was then heard and everyone started for the hall to see the fancy ball room dance exhibiton to be given by Claudia McGinnis and Douglas Brassington. "Goof" Martin was a bit jealous of the ap- plause given the couple and decided to give a solo dance. George Patton and Frank Eaton sang one of the latest popular songs such as, 70 TALAHI "My Old Kentucky Home," and "Silver Threads Among the Gold." They also sang some of the dance pieces while the orchestra was mending a broken violin. The music was unusual and the dancers kept excellent time for at least two thirds of the dance. About six or seven o'clock the chaperons be- gan to get sleepy and some of the merry pic- nickers started for home. Those who missed the stages had to get home the best way they could. Some took the train and others went in private cars. In the station a number of the students gave another demonstration of their abilities to orate. Bill Tousey gave an oration and solved the mystery of why he has so much to do for North Central. The resi- dents of Liberty Lake were evidently very much relieved when the last of the seniors had left the lake, for later reports were heard to the effect that three of the most prominent of North Central seniors were continually at their doors for information or just to ring the bell and ask some foolish question of the person who came to the door. But, for all of that, Saturday found every- one fully recovered from the picnic and Mon- day found everyone at school. 10-OT NORTH CENTRAL PRINT SHOP One of the departments of North Central which should receive special mention is the print shop, organized four years ago under the direction of E. E. Green. During the last four years the material and equipment used have more than trebled, and the cost has been paid out of the proceeds of the shop. Besides turning out the tickets and programs for the various school activities, the shop prints all the grade and high school literature for school district no. 81, including the semi- annual report from the superintendent and secretary's office. Probably the most important function of the print shop is the printing of the North Cen- tral News. All the mechanical work on the paper, from the setting of the "ads" to the folding of the printed sheets, is done in the print shop. There are many students at pres- ent who are helping in some way with the make-up of the paper. ...o.-O.. SENIOR HONOR ROLL Twenty-two of the students of the class of June 1922 will have the distinction of grad- uating with grades of an average of 90 per cent or more. Students on the roll will re- ceive an honor emblem, an old English "N. C." Out of the twenty-two students on the honor roll, there are but two boys, Ralph Foy and Leo Kailin. Grace Hermann takes first with an average of 93.78 per cent. Elsa Lindberg is second with 93.68 per cent and Mable Swank is third with 93.12 per cent. Those who qualified for the honor roll fol- low in the order of their ranking: Grace Her- mann, Elsa Lindberg, Mable Swank, Eleanor Hutchins, Ernestine Ludke, Eleanor Bradley, Leo Kailin, Elizabeth Morgan, Ethel Waltz, Florence Renard, Doris Brockway, Margery Segessenmann, Alva Peterson, Ralph Foy, Dorothy Matters, Dorothea Brooks, Gladys Rudeen, Rosemary Murphy, Ruth Crosby, Evelyn Engdahl, Catherine Hunt and Made- line Cooney. ,koi "DON" CARSVVELL IS CIRCULATION MANAGER The name of Donald Carswell, circulation manager of the News and the Talahi, was in- advertently omitted from the list of names of the staff members of this annual. As a circulation manager, Carswell held an important position on the staff. During the semester he established a circulation for the News that has meant considerable to the school and to the school paper. The circulation of the Talahi was a task which should not be under-estimated. Carswell secured enough subscriptions to insure a better book than otherwise would have been possible. , ....o..oT " THE FORTUNE HUNTER " "The Fortune Hunter" by Winchell Smith, which was presented May 10, 1922, in the North Central auditorium by the Masque Dra- matic society, was considered a success. Miss Elgine VVarren coached the production. The play was a clever comedy in four acts. It centered around Nathaniel Duncan, who had been petted all his life and supplied with too much money. He is a shining social success and a "would be" business man, but without sufhcient ability to keep himself from starving. His father dies, leaving him practically penni- less and, after trying nearly every line of busi- ness, he is a complete failure. His colloge chum suggests that he go to a small town and marry a girl with a million dollars and so solve his financial problems. "Nat" secures employment in a village drug store and begins life as the fortune hunter. His employer is a simple and trusting old man who has invented a way of making oil from shale rock. Duncan keeps the old man from selling his invention to a swindler and later sells it to a New York promoter for a very large sum. The banker's daughter proposes to Nat but in the meantime he has taken a liking to his employer's daughter, Betty. Nat sends her away to school and complications arise when CC0ntinur'd on page 812 TALAHI W wi .... 1 , -. r...-nv-.fa""' X fu'-...,,,::' I-47 .s..,X5 0 ll Sparta 72 TALAHI INLAND EMPIRE CHAMPIONS BASKET BALL The 1922 North Central basket ball team en- joyed the most successful season of any team in the history of the school. Not only did it defeat its South Side rvials in three out of the four games played, but they captured the championship of the Inland Empire by win- ning the annual Spokane Amateur Athletic club tournament held the first week in March. Before the city championship series the red and black team lost to the Coeur d'Alene ag- gregation by a 30 to 16 score. It also dropped one game to the Missoula, Montana, team, 32- 30. It then won from the Libby, Montana, team 23-21, from the Missoula crew, 32-29, from the Wenatcliee high, 28-10, and then the Gonzaga high, 30-12. The Lewis and Clark series opened on Ian- uary of last semester with a defeat for the red and black by a 21 to 13 score. North Cen- tral came back in the next game of the series, handing its rivals a 25-18 defeat. Between the second and third games the North Central five defeated the Vera high school 41-21.. The third game of the city championship series also went to the North Side team, 23-16. The fourth game of the series ended the fight by a 29-12 North Central victory. For two weeks the North Central quintet went into hard training for the S. A. A. C. tournament. The red and black team opened the tourna- ment with the decisive 52-6 defeat of the Sprague high school. The second team that the Spokane champions met and defeated was the Vera bunch of apple pickers. After the smoke of this battle had cleared away the North Central boys were on the big end of a 34-12 score. In the semi-finals of the big tour- nament the North Central team met and de- feated the strong Latah lineup, the final score being 24-12. This placed the North Central team in the finals. Gonzaga high had won its way to the finals by a hard game with the Coeur d'Alene team in the afternoon. The final game of the big tournament be- tween North Central and Gonzaga proved to be one of the fastest, closest games theat was ever played on a Spokane Hoor. Hours before the titular contest was called the S. A. A. C. gym was packed with ardent supporters and hundreds were parked outside. The game was called at 3:30 by Referee George Varnell. For six minutes the two teams played fast, scoreless basket ball. At the end of ten minutes the N. C. team had managed to score seven points to Gonzaga's two. At the TALAHI 73 end of the first half the score stood nine to seven in favor of the red and black. After ten minutes of rest the two teams came back with blood in their eyes. For a few minutes no one scored. Then Horn caged a foul. Rotchford scored one from the foul line. Dusalt tied the score at 10 all with a basket from the center of the floor. Allen made lZ with one from the side lines. Rotchford again tied the count by caging two free throws. Martin raised the count to 14 with a long shot. Ralls tied the count two minutes before the gun. With but 40 seconds to play VValter Horn caged the final goal that gave North Central the victory and the championship, l6-14. ..,0Toi.... BASEBALL The 1922 North Central baseball team prov- ed itself to be the high school champions of Spokane by taking the series from the Lewis and Clark team in three out of four games. Pre-series dope gave Lewis and Clark all odds in the series. The L. C. crew had Jones, the man who had defeated North Central last year in three. straight games, and Ed Brandt, a gigantic left hander who had won much fame as a strike-out king. North Central had only two pitchers who were figured to strat, Wilk- enson and Brassington. Neither of the men was given credit for having the ability to com- pete with the strong hurling staff of the orange and black. In the first game of the series coach Elder started his old favorite, jones. Coach Hawes of North Central shocked the South Siders by putting Kenneth "Lefty" Adams in the box for North Central. Captain Henry of North Central started the ball rolling in the first in- ning by poling one of Jones' offerings over the left field fence. Again in the third inning with two men on bases Henry came to the bat. Elder immediately jerked jones and placed Brandt on the mound in a vain attempt to check the rally. Henry connected with Brandt's fast one for three bases, scoring the two men. He scored on a single. The red and black came out victorious after nine in- nings with the big end of an eight to live score. By winning the second game of the series three to one the red and black nine proved to the fans that the first win was no fluke. The second game was one of the fastest, cleanest games of baseball that has ever been played between the two schools. Brandt of Lewis and Clark established a new strike-out record by setting down 19 of the North Central hitters who faced him. "Lefty" Adams, heaving his second game for N. C., pitched stellar ball and had air-tight support from his team. The fielding of Kent Allen, N. C. shortstop, was the feature of the game. In the third game for the championship, the red and black crew put the game on ice by scoring three runs in the first inning but could not stand prosperity and blew up, giving Lewis and Clark the contest four to three. In the first inning Horn singled, Allen was hit by a pitched ball and Henry hit the left held fence for two bases, scoring Allen and Horn.

For five innings, North Central tried to give the game back to its rivals but was unsuccesful. In the sixth Henry, Adams and Horn let a pop Hy drop between them while they were arguing and Lewis and Clark scored its first run. .Horn let one roll between his legs in the next inning for the second count for L. C. McGrath did the same in the following inning. L. C. tied the count. In the tenth inning Henry heaved one over McGrath's head for the final count. The red and black nine came back in the fourth contest and took the game and series by a nine to four count. The North Central bats- men waited out Brandt and then hit him to all corners of the lot and mixed in some pretty bunts and squeeze plays. The Lewis and Clark team blew up in the fifth and allowed three red and black men to tally. In the sixth and seventh the same thing happened. Bras- sington replaced Adams in the eighth and "whiffed" four of the six orange and black men that faced him. In picking the all-star team Eddie Ferris, the umpire, selected seven North Central men and three from the South Side, Brandt CL. C.J and Adams QN. CQ were given the hurl- ing job. Conklin CN. C.J was placed on first, Luck CL. CQ on second, Horn CN. C.J on third, Allen QN. C.J on short, Wilkenson QN. CQ, VVatson QN. C.J and Jones QL. C.J in the outfield. Henry, the North Central captain and catcher, was awarded the catching ,position and also the honor of being captain of the all- star lineup. VV hen the tinal batting averages were figured out they showed that Luke Watson, the red and black center Helder, led the swat artists with an average of .441. Brandt of L. C. was second with .416 and Henry and Wilky were third and fourth with averages of .396 and .385 respectively. io-oi. , TENNIS At the beginning of the tennis season, which opened about the last week in April, many girls in North Central reported for practice on the tennis squad. The tennis squad was composed of about 30 girls who regularly turned out for practice every afternoon. majority of the girls on the squad used the Corbin park tennis courts for practice but sev- eral of the girls who held memberships in the Spokane Amateur Athletic club took advan- tage of their opportunity to use the club courts. Miss Slsa M. Pinkham, girls' physical direc- tor, is coach of the girls' tennis team. This spring a ranking tournament was conducted in North Central under the direction of Miss Pinkham and Eleanor Hyslop, captain of the team. All the girls on the squad participated in the with the result that the six ranking highest in the tournament were selected as the team which is scheduled to meet Lewis and Clark on June 10. The following girls were selected as team members: Eleanor Hyslop, Helen Huneke, Stello Powell, Edith Grobe, Edith Leaf add Elna Anderson. The first tive girls will each play in the singles.

It is the friend of the debuutante and the foe of the barber. VV hen dried in it dulls his scissors and sharpens his tongue, Show me a man with his hair pasted down like a postage stamp, and I will show you one who wears spats, carries his handkerchief in his sleeve, and has a fiat place on his knee just large enough for a tea cup. Salve-er-on is the first step on the road to failure and being a humor writer. The inno- cent youth Who is coaxed by rough associates into using Salve-er-on, soon starts parting his hair in the middle and begins smoking per- fumed cigarettes, or writing free verse-and a free verse writer is worse than a free lunch grabber. Moral: If you can't make love without Salve-er-on, then keep your hat on. W TALAHI LJ if c::9E 54,3 zrrQ, IAQQQU 83505 nM,l'l--- 4-JZ CLEA Z IN YOUR' ER POW NG ULLI Q P T PU WILL VERTISI NG . QD S.

Any junior or senior girl wishing to be a "big sister" to some incoming freshman girl, signed up in Miss Gibson's office. She was then given the name and address of the fresh- man girl who was to be her "little sister." . The object of the movement is to help the incoming freshman girls in every Way possible. The "big sister" shows her "little sister" around the school, introduces her to students who will help her, helps her in her studies if necessary, and in general she is to the fresh- man girl what her real sister would be to her. The "big sister" usually gives Miss Gibson a report of her freshman sister about every two weeks. The movement has been so successful this semester that girls were asked to sign 1 p to be "big sisters" to the incoming girls next se- mester. ?o.,,....

"Well, it means good luck," I muttered, as I picked it from the floor, , Only that and nothing more. Then I placed it in my pocket, with a handkerchief and locket, Soliloquizing as I did that 'twas foolish less or more To be ever superstitious, and that I was too ambitious To believe the things fictitious told now and forever more, To accept as fact the fiction gossips tell for ever more, I thought this and something mare. "But 'twill do no harm to keep it, and some day I might e'en seek it, For I'm oft in need of hairpins and have sought for them before 5 This experience I'm trying proves if an old saying's lying, Or if indeed my reason's flying from my cranium so sore." Then I lost myself among the crowd of students by the door, And thought of hairpins nothing more. Two weeks hence I reconnoitered that hall down which I had loitered On the day I saw the hairpin and had picked it off the floor. I Then I notice there abounded followers of a style new-founded-- I admit I was astounded-all the girls the bobbed hair wore! Every girl in that expanse of hall the new-style bobbed hair wore. There occurred then something more For it happened at this juncture that there was a little puncture As the hairpin of my pocket came to prominence once moreg And there was a little hole in that pocket which the hairpin For two weeks had made its home in, since I found it on the floor. And I realized that the hairpin made the hole not seen beforeg A hole to patch-it made me sore. Then I looked at it, and wondered, and decided I had blundered In so foolishly believing that some good luck was in store. And my ignorance appalled me as the revelation stalled me, When, just then, as my friend called me, I thought something new-and more, Found hairpins mean new friends-good luck, never- more. New friends-good luck, nevermore. Congratulations Three of us took part in y o u r development o f which we are all proud. Your teachers w i t h their learning.

XVell in the first place, George, when you get your little skin roll you feel like you was in cap and bells instead of cap and gown although f you have this constellation that it took the fathletic board and his underlingsj four years or more to make a monkey of you. In the second place it feels just like you step on a fuzzy rug in the dark with your bare feet which is to say in language which Hts my pres- ent position you feel tickled pink. But no, where's the graduate's feeling of democracy so noticeable as it is when he is among the freshies, bless 'em? He is just as quiet and modest and fearful of them and their glassy eye as he was when he N Much of Your Success in Life Depends Upon Your ppearance The successful man or woman knows the value of having their gar- ments cleaned and pressed regularly.

It is not a hospital, nor the poorhouse. It is not the Davenport hot- el, for the "Stomach of Spokane" would prove a more befitting title for that. No, none of these. Nor is it a newspaper, or the largest de- partment store in town. Neither is it the park. None of these. The "Heart of Spokane" is that thundering and yet lulling waterfall blind- ly rushing on, rushing on and foaming with white rage over the seeming meaninglessness of its mission. That's the Heart of Spokane. It is an ever throbbing, never resting, re- volting symbol of power, relentlessly rushing over the precipice into the depths, leaving in its wake sufficient lightning to blind or strike into eternal numbness every man, woman and child, every dog, cat and fowl, every song-bird and mosquito that were ever turned loose to kill instead of creating as is the case today. That's the Heart of Spokane. As I stood on the bridge, watching the Heart of Spokane beat feverly with its never ceasing impulse of life, at iirst the roar of its heartbeat almost deafened me. It drowned all the noises of the awakening city.

Had I been subjected to the roar of the city of an epual intensity as that which rose from the thrumming turmoil below, it would have driven me mad. But then, such is the difference between a thundering noise and thundering music. The former grows ever more ravageous in its onslought upon our threadworn nerves, while the other may benumb at first only to soothe, to lull, a few moments later. And so I too soon felt the hush of its lulling influence. It was no longer the thunderous roar that set a-trembling every atom' of my being, the physical as well as the spiritual. Now it was its mellow humming melody that awakened divine harmonie in thoughts and music within my soul. It was as if this ever inspiring power had reached its zenith of strength and, like all an- tipodes of extremities it now proved the one- ness of all by transforming into a quiet moth- erly spirit. Yes, it sang its lullaby to the hun- dred thousand sleeping children, and the grown-ups and the wee ones of the city. As far as my eyes could see, the horizon was fringed with the green of forests and fertile fields. In the dim distance stood on-' guard philosophical mountain peaks, and all the stage was flooded in glorious sunshine.

Editor's Note--When Laszlo Schwartz, eminent Hungarian violinist-composer, was in Spokane on Monday, May 15, he gave a concert at the Central Christian church. Mr. Schwartz was making his second tour of the world, and Spokane was the first American city to be visited by him. VVhile here, he was impressed by the beauty of the Spokane falls, and wrote the following article which he gave to a News reporter: --o-o- He-You're growing more beautiful every day.
