Although she has been in North Central for only two years
her influence and guidance has inade a deep impression on
the feelings of North Central Students. Graduating classes
owe to her their sincere 'gratitude for the fine class plays
she has produced. She has helped with senior class day con-
vocations, coached operettas. put on special plays and come
through with the drive of her energetic personality every
time she has been asked to help.
This and otliexmgradnating classes remember her for two
outstanding qualities--inspirntion and leadership.

Dear North Central,
This is just n note to find out how everyone
was pleased with our will, left to the school
four years ago by our January '80 class.
We'll bet the frosh appreciate the supreme
knowledge that we bequeathed to them. It
must have helped them a lot.
We wonder if Johnny Sommer is out of this
higher place of learning yet. He must have
enjoyed the use of Beatrice Bemiss' intellif
Uh yes! And how is old Dapper Dan getting
along on those speeches with the aid of Chuck
Campbell's great oratorical ability?
We are sure glad that Bob Grieve played
such a wonderful game at guard with Carl
Carbon's drive back of him.
Say, has our dear old friend Ray Langen-
bach been elected Pow Wow Princess yet? He
certainly should have been with Bertha
George's wonderful femininity and charm on
top of his own.
Although we realize that he couldn't hold
as "high" a position, we would like to know
how Clyde Vigil got along with Bill Mc-
Cluskey's sleuthing abilities.
And last but also the most important fha!
we fooled youi. Has that big fellow Goliath
been able to attain as high a degree of curios-
ity as Beatrice White had? YVe certainly hope
he hasn't but he was getting an awful good
Although we would like to ask about the
many others to whom we willed things we will
close, and don't forget to write us a nice long
letter and tell us all the news.
Very sincerely yours,
Class of January 1930
By Will Committee,
GUY MILLER fChairmanJ
"We came, we saw and we hoped to con-
Long ago, in January, 1926, there arrived
at the open portals of N. C. H. S., perhaps the
most frightened and yet destined to be one
of the greatest classes that ever went through
the institution. For the fact remains that thr
class of '80 made a creditable record in its
four years of earnest endeavors to teach the
which had so long blemished the view of the
school, could, with the help of a certain
amount of money and a great deal of hard
work, be transformed into a playfield which
would do honor to our institution. On the 15th
day of April Mr. Shaw started the job by pur-
chasing this rock pile for the sum of 59000.
We visualized a football field, track, a base-
ball diamond, tennis and handball courts. Now

supporters of North Central the rock pile
plex" and had entered into the "swim of
thingsf' We. the formerly insignificant look-
ing group, had lost our greenish hue and
childish ways. During the second year we had
not only caught the spirit of N. C. but we
gave it a material boost by continued subscrip-
tions to the playfield fund.
Oh! The joy of being Juniors! Mortal
enemies of the Sophomores and the Seniors,
there was only one class we could be conde-
scending toward-the Freshies. Fully realiz-
ing our responsibility as upperclassmen, we
resolved not only to have a good time but
to play more than our part in the various
activities of the school. For example Charles
Campbell, our worthy editor, had twice won
the Ahlquist Debate and Carl Carbon was well
established in sports. Earl Wyatt, our song-
bird had been in two operettasg Mildred Rob-
inson and Roberta Shanks were stars of the
swimming team: Lucille Latham was becoming
prominent in Girls' League work. John "Play-
field" Shaw left us this year to become- the
principal of Havermale Junior high, the fac-
tory from which future prominence was to
sprout. He left us with a field that was so
far completed that many of our sporting ac-
tivities could he carried out upon it. Walter
C. Hawes then took up his disciplinary
duties. Our junior year was an overwhelm-
ing success, both from the standpoint of the
class and from the standpoint of the school
as a whole.
At last the destined day came and we ar-
rived at school with our heads high in the air
for we had now reached the top and were
Seniors. Our Senior B year was a success
under the leadership of Roland Johnson as
president: Bertha George, vice president,
Frances Jones, secretary, and Guy Miller,
treasurer. As Senior A's the members of the
Girls' League decided that no one was better
fitted to guide the girls through the semester
than Marian Dortch, president: Margaret
Bardsley, vice president: and Helen Lieb,
secretary as her assistants, all from our
class. Our class aided football with stars from
the January '30 class such as Yvinton Welch,
Tom Mason, Al Dihhlee and Gilbert McGinnis.
Marjorie Corhit and Evelyn Henkle made a
name for themselves on the tennis team. In
conclusion we can say that the good times that
the class has had have been very numerous.
We need but mention our senior play "Noth-
vvvvvvvv 7777777 vvVV1
ing But the Truth" for everyone to recall
what a huge success it was. We were the
first January class to give a successful prom.
We wish to express our appreciation to the
entire faculty for their help and cooperation.
We are now looking forward to graduation.
When it is all over we will probably be wish-
ing we could come back even if we had to be
Freshies again. At any rate we'll never forget
our high school days.

'Will you walk into my parlor?"
Said the beauty doctor fly,
As a maid-he quickly spied 'er-
Carelessly was strolling by.
"No, I thank you, sir," she murmured.
Pretty "fly" herself, you see.
"Beauty's but skin deep and, really,
Skin-games don't go down with me."
Soon will the snow, the beautiful snow,
Flitter and flutter on all helowg
Out of the depths of the wintry sky,
Like angel-letters from realms on high,
Over the meadow, on bush and tree,
Lacey-like patterns of filigree:
But here in the city upon the street
We'll need galoshes or get wet feet.

W'e were taking a trial trip across the Gobi
desert with our recently invented sport rocket
plane when, for some unforeseen cause, our
rocket projector ceased firing and we felt our-
selves falling through space. One awful mo-
ment of suspense and then the inevitable crash
came. Due to the novel structure of the in-
terior of the plane we were not injured. After
congratulating ourselves on our fortunate es-
cape, we were suddenly thrown into a panic
by the sudden realization that we were without
food or water. Hoping against hope, we fran-
tically searched the wreckage of the plane
only to find that our terrible plight was only
too true. Then began days of never ceasing
vigilance and nights of aimless conjecture of
what the dawn would bring.
Mid-afternoon of the fourth day found us
sitting on pieces of the wreckage of our rocket
plane, As we gazed across the desert a mirage
seemed gradually to come before our eyes. A
city grew up in front of us. It all seemed so
unreal, but there it was. I knew it must be
so because I saw so many familiar names and
There shining out in lights a foot high was

ing him as the world's greatest tenor. QNot
paid for thisj. At the head of his supporting
cast was beautiful Catherine Nichols. Desirous
of seeing our old friends perform, we pur-
chased tickets at 365.00 a seat. Inside the
theater our old leader Al Dibblee occupied
the president's box. It seemed that Al had
been advanced to President of the United
States. He looked very dignified sitting beside
his stately wife Mrs. Dibblee, nee Lucille Som-
mer. We could hardly wait until the last
strains of the music had died away that we
might rush back-stage and renew acquaintances
with our classmates. Max Weber and Guy
Miller were also seen in the cast. After we
had talked over old times at North Central
they invited us to join them at dinner in one
of the well-known night clubs. Because of our
friends' popularity, the hostess of the club, a
very rotund woman, greeted us as we entered.
Upon an intense scrutiny of her we recog-
nized our former willowy valedictorian, Bea-
trice Ann Bemiss. She gracefully conducted us
to a corner table which afforded us an excel-
lent view of the intcrior.A tall waiter in even-
ing dress, who was none other than James
Irwin, approached our table and took our
order. From the heart of an Italian Gardens
floated the silvery strains of some "red hot"
jazz. Simultaneously a chorus of beautiful
girls led by the sylph-like Eleanor Martineau
and Bertha Enfield appeared. Among the dan-
cers we saw Stella Halverson, Helen Ward,
Dorothy Erickson and Bernice Van Dorn.
No sooner had the dance been completed
than the scene seemed to change before our
eyes and we found ourselves as guests at a
large church wedding. Strains of a wedding
march floated across the room as the couple
to be married marched down the aisle. They
both looked very happy. Much to our surprise
the bride was Margaret Bardsley and the
groom, Charles Campbell, an occasion which
accounted for the look of happiness on their
faces. The minister, our old friend, Austin So-
derquist, performed the marriage. Afterward
we went to buy some flowers to send to the re-
cently married couple when we spied a little
old wrinkled up lady on the corner of the
street selling flowers. W'e decided that she
looked as if she needed the money so we
bought a dozen roses from her. As we started
to walk away she asked us in a deep, hoarse
voice if we didn't remember her. Much to our
embarrassment we said no we didn't. She
announced herself as Marjorie Rhodes. She
told us that she was selling flowers for n
living as her husband, Harry Hale, was serv-
ing a life term in Sing Sing for abusing the
saxophone. We all felt that was the place for
Harry, but felt terribly sorry for his wife.
After giving Marjorie our sympathy, we walk-
ed on down the street to have the flowers de-
livered to the recently married couple.
We continued our travels down the street
when we came upon a revival meeting. We de-
cided to go inside for awhile as we didn't
want to miss anything. As the meeting had
already started and we did not wish to dis-
turh it, we took seats at the back of the room.
Our old acquaintance, Roberta Tuttle, was
leading the meeting. She seemed to be in her
glory while she was preaching. We know our
friend's failing for speech. Reverend Tuttle
made the announcement that the collection
would be for the disabled mice in Alaska. As
we did not feel responsible for the object of
the collection we left immediately, thus not
getting a chance to speak with our old friend.
cated behind the main garbage bin. The ven-
tilation was controlled by a forced draft of
cool air passing over a box of moth balls. The
draft of cool air proved to be the rush of
wind from the propellor of a low flying rescue
plane which brought supplies and relief to us.
The exhaust of the ship, as it taxied over the
rough sand, had a tendency to awaken us
from our stupor which had been brought on
by the lack of water. We welcomed the pilot
of the rescue plane, whom we identified by his

He had come up for air and was waiting for
his wife, the former Evelyn Henkle who was
bringing him his lunch. During his lunch hour
he showed us around his work, that of being
bookkeeper for the street cleaners, which
proved very interesting. His office was lo-
over the head of a man emerging
over-joyed at the rescue, as well as we might
be after being stranded on a desert for five
days without food or water.
Having settled all accounts we took off and
sailed among the clouds for home. This, my
friends, is the prophecy for the class of Jan-

Van Dyke, the eminent writer, describes an
ideal as a fixed purpose by which from time
to time you can steer your life.
Man holds the key to his every situation,
and has within himself the power by which he
may make himself what he wills. How often,
though, are we influenced by some other per-
son's power. In some one we have read about
or have known in our lives, there has been, or
is, something, some characteristic, that may in-
fluence our lives greatly.
As freshmen in high school, we desired to
have the dignity of a senior. As seniors, we
were helped to remodel our lives by some other
persons. And so it is through life, just one
ideal after another. Somehow we contrive and
struggle to reach the same heights of personal
magnitude of the person who impresses us.
If our ideal is one of the worthy type, so do
our lives mould in that form of citizenry. As
an example take the character of the boy in
Hawthorne's Great Stone Face.
The ideals themselves probably never guess
of the lasting impressions that they have left
on the idealist. Perhaps you yourself are some
one's ideal. Some one may be looking to you
for an inspiration for life. If we could only
know of such a thing, perhaps our lives would
be differentg better ones, maybe.
It would be wise for many of us to re-
member that one's success in life may depend
upon the character he picks as his ideal.
LEARNING VERSUS EARNING
Institutions of learning have brought the
younger generation of today nearer than it
has ever been for a decade to an observance of
the bill of rights, free education, free speech,
a free press and freedom of worship.
But it is not altogether with the younger
generation that such improvements are being
madeg the older folks have taken it up too.
Millions of grown-ups, having decided that they
don't have to stop their education just be-
cause they can no longer go to school or col-
lege, are returning to many institutions for
adults. Here in Spokane we have some excel-
Modern inventions are making education
more universal than ever before. The radio,
especially, has become a means for instruction
in the privacy of the home, Science, particularly
chemistry, is daily opening up new ideas. Art
and music thrives as it never did before.
On the other hand, learning means earning,
but learning has replaced earning as our rul-
ing passion. Books are better and more widely
read than ever before. Today the education of
the masses is becoming more universal than
it has been for many centuries. It was the com-
mon belief that the lower classes were not to
have any education at all, today it is the urge
of all intelligent social workers to insist on the
education of the lower classes. Political phil-
osophers, from the time of ancient Greece
down to the nineteenth century in England,
have taught that the prosperity of society de-
pended upon the existence within it of a large
mass of ignorant poor. Such a belief today
would be the height of ridiculousness.
The period of immaturity has lengthened
so that this generation is greatly enriched by
the experiences and achievements of all the past.
As civilization becomes richer and more com-
plex, the time devoted to education naturally
THE FUTURE AND YOU
It is a known fact that man has long been,
and always will be, in search of a mythical
state of being called happiness. We have
learned from psychology that man's existence
depends upon his urges, his inclinations and
his desires. When he has satisfied all these
urges, he has a so-called contented feeling. He
has reached a state of happiness.
Picture the Neanderthal man, his wants
were few, only something to eat and a skin
to throw over him, but today our status of
living has instilled in us countless new wants
and desires, some of them very artificial.
Four years of high school education has
awakened in most of us new desires and new
urges. We are in quest of a newer state of
happiness than the one we had when we were
younger. In our infant stage it took only a
rattle, something to eat at regular intervals
and sleep, to make us contented. Today our
minds have developed to a stage where we
must have greater moral, physical and spirit-
ual things to make us happy. Tomorrow we
will need even greater things as our lives be-
come more complicated to make us satisfied.
When we have left our high school life, and
have ventured upon a new life, we find that
others before us have created for us new
wants. Our biggest need is to build for our-
selves a life work that will provide for us.
Thus far our schooling has helped to guide
us toward a vocation that will be a credit to
us in the future. In the days to come the
seniors who are graduating will have need of
this foundation on which to build their castle
AN END AND A BEGINNING
Four years ago this graduating class of
January 1930 entered this building as fresh-
men. During this period of time we have at-
tained many distinctions and many honors,
both physical and mental. Our acquaintances
and friends have been increased, and our lives
have been made richer because of them.
Learning was our chief interest. The aim of
every student was to take with him when he
graduated the gleamings of the crop . . . a
buried treasure of knowledge that he was to
find in books with the help of his teachers.
Although we will be scattered in all corners
a few years after gradua-
our ranks will be thinned

eyes to look back
through in our high school years. Memory is
the one thing that will keep all of us united.
Our diplomas will start us on a life vastly
different than the last four years. For a while
there will be that feeling of lost souls, a long-
ing to be back with the ones we loved and
admired. As time goes on many other activi-
ties will call our attentions. Countless hundreds
of successful business men and women have
come from the ranks of North Central's sen-
Our futures lie in the hands of fate to decide
upon, and we can only hope that our lives will
be as successful as those before us.
We will have ended a high school career, to
start anew, after our graduation. To those we
leave behind, we wish all the success in the
world, and as a final tribute to the teachers
who have helped us to struggle through these
four years of learning, we can only say

"I have a plan that may work. We will

to try it," confided Parker.
"Great! I am sure we will trap him," ex-
ulted Mr. Bartholmew.
A week later Marley read in the New York
Times of Bartholmew's boast and he set out
to humble him. Arriving at the house about
one o'clock, he donned gloves and mask and
climbed noiselessly to a small balcony. Taking
a glass-cutter from his pocket, he carefully cut
out a section of glass large enough to admit
his body. Walking swiftly but quietly, he
reached the door to the library. It was here
that his keenly developed sixth sense warned
him to retreat. He had already taken a step
backward when his pride drove him on. Open-
ing the door, he walked quietly to the safe.
Standing there with his hand upon the dial
of the safe, he felt a vague fear for the first
time in his eventful life. With an effort, he
brought his mind back to his work. In a few
minutes he had the safe open and the diamond
in his pocket. Turning about, he started to
leave the room. He had reached the middle
of the room when the light flashed on! Whirl-
ing about, he stared down the muzzle of
Parker's gun, The inevitable had happened.
"Hands up!" commanded Parker.
Black Mask obeyed. As his hands shot up-
ward, his fist crashed deftly into the light
bulb, breaking it and plunging the room into
darkness. Parker fired three shots in such
rapid succession that the shots sounded almost
as one. The steel-nosed bullets sank harmlessly
into the woodwork on the other side of the
room, for Marley had dropped to the floor a
half second before Parker fired.
In a moment the house was in an uproar.
Servants came running to the library, and a
policeman was soon hammering on the front
door for admittance. Amid all this confusion,
Marley found it a simple thing to slip back
through the window, drop to the ground, and
escape unchallenged. Marley walked up Park
Avenue and was soon out of sight of the Bar-
But here fate took a hand. Doris Barthol-
mew, returning home from a friend's house,
saw a man climbing out the window of her
father's house. Doris was a true Bartholmew.
Without an instant's hesitation, she set out
shadowing the man.
For the first time, Marley broke his rule.
He took the Sidney Diamond to his home.
His gloves, mask and glass-cutter he left at
the other apartment, but the diamond was so
beautiful that he could not resist the tempta-
tion to take it home with him. Little did he
guess what this carelessness was to cost him!
Doris, having followed Marley for several
blocks, had lost sight of him for a few min-
utes when he entered the apartment to hide
his mask, gloves and glass-cutter. She was
about to call up her father when the man ap-
peared again. During all the time she had
been following him, she had never once seen
his face, but it was fairly easy to keep track
of him, as the avenue was quite deserted. She
followed him to a house which she rightly
judged to be his residence. Doris then called
her father and informed him of her where-
abouts and explained the situation to him.
Bartholmew and Parker were overjoyed and
promised to join her immediately. In a few
minutes they met her at the corner from which
she had been watching Marley's house. It was
decided that Parker should watch the house
till morning, when Bartholmew would retum
with a search warrant. Doris was to meet them
at nine o'clock.
Next morning, Marley was idly examining
the Sidney Diamond when some one knocked
on the door, commanding that it be opened
in the name of the law. Marley quickly con-
cealed the diamond and then opened the door.
"I have a search warrant to serve on you,"
announced Parker, flashing his badge and
handing Marley a paper.
"As I have no other choice in the matter,
you have my permission, but please complete
your work as soon as possible," replied Mar-
ley coldly. Parker made a thorough search of
the room, even sifting the ashes in the fire-
place but all to no avail. As a last chance he
searched Marley, but without results.
"I hope you are satisfied, gentlemen," re-
marked Marley as he showed them to the door.
Doris, seeing the crestfallen look on their
faces, knew they had failed,
"I am going to try to find that diamond
myself," suddenly announced Doris, "I will
pretend that I am taking subscriptions for a
charity organization. If he has the diamond,
he won't suspect a woman and I may get a
chance to see it," she explained.
After considerable argument, Bartholmew
agreed to let her try it. After all, it could do
no harm. With a fast beating heart, she went
up the steps to the door of the house and
When the door was opened she started in
surprise, for there stood James Marley, her
favorite author. Surely there was some mis-
take. Marley, a thief? Impossible, she thought.
With a start she realized that he was politely
inquiring what he could do for her. Somehow
she managed to mumble something about a
charity club and asked him if he would sub-
scribe something to it. He said he would do
so and asked her to come inside. Sitting at a
small table, she told him that the people she
represented wanted to buy a small farm in the
country to give some orphans a real home. He
asked Doris what society she represented and
she named a prominent one. Taking a pen, he
wrote out a check and handed it to her. With
a gasp of surprise, she read the amount on the
check. The society could afford to purchase
several farms! Reaching for her hat on the
table, she clumsily upset a tumbler of water
and--out onto her lap rolled the Sidney Dia-
Doris had succeeded where Parker had
failed. However, Parker was not much to be
blamed, for a diamond in a tumbler of water
isn't very conspicuous. Marley had reasoned
wisely that the very simplicity of the hiding-
place insured its success.
Doris looked at the diamond in her lap and
"You are Black Mask," she accused.
With a resigned smile, Marley murmured,
His thoughts leaped backward over the
career he had chosen. Like every other crimi-
nal in the world, he had thought that he could
outwit the forces of law and order. Too late he
realized his mistake. The prisons of the United
States are filled with men who hold that
thought. The prisoners would soon enjoy his
company, mused Marley.
Meanwhile, a conflict was raging in Doris'
mind. Should she let the man she admired go
to jail for ten or twenty years, or should she
lie to her father and Parker? Suddenly she had
"Marley l" she cried.
Marley startled from his meditations, begged
"Where do you keep your loot?" questioned
"In an apartment uptown," replied Marley.
"Have you disposed of any of it?" she
"No, I stole solely for the excitement of it,"
"If I don't reveal your identity as Black
Mask, will you return all the loot and give up
your double life?', she asked eagerly.
Marley agreed and a few minutes later
Doris left the apartment, with the diamond,
wrapped in tissue paper, secure in her glove.
Several months later, Parker received an
invitation to the wedding of Doris and Marley.
For some time he had been following the ro-
mance with great interest.
"Two of the finest young people I know,"
said Parker, as he tilted back in his chair to
read the evening news.
Fmsr Paxze Poem
By Elsie Degler
Yesterday is but a memory,
Written in a book of time.
Today is but a repetition
With just an added line.
Tomorrow is not a promise,
But just a goal to seek.
But tomorrow life shall speak.
Morning, noon and night each day
Shall find me lingering on my way.
Each morning I shall rise to find
Opportunities I left behind.
Each day I shall learn to live,
And part with the best I have to give.
Each night I shall close my eyes and say,
t'What did I give the world today?"
Days and weeks and years go by,
But Father Time works on,
And weaves the golden hours and days
Into an everlasting song.
Still upon life's broad highway,
I unconsciously move ahead,
And find I do not live tomorrow,
But I live today instead.
'vw THE TAMARACK vvvvv
The Beggar of Trlpoll
Sacoxn Pnxza Sroar
By Margaret Carter
The streets of Tripoli are very narrow and
crooked. They are paved with cobblestones, and
vaults overhead make them look like long
winding tunnels with patches of blue sky
showing intermittently above. The homes of the
wealthy merchants and Caids present solid
gloomy fronts which seem to guard jealously
secrets and mysteries of the East. Murder
could be committed behind them and no one
know. Their only evidence of life lies in the
small barred windows through which wistful,
almond shaped eyes may be furtively watch-
ing the doings of the busy street below.
At three o'clock in the morning, however,
Tripoli was asleep. A concealing fog shrouded
the details of the cold mansions so that the
opening of one of the massive, carved doors
was barely discernible. The huge iron hinges
creaked ominously, the door swung slowly
open, and an aged beggar slipped forth. It
would seem as if a black hearted pirate should
have stepped from the misty gloom rather
than that crippled, bent old man. Filthy rags,
which were loosely wrapped around him, drag-
ged behind him, making a soft whispering
sound on the cobblestones. He wore a turban
of old sacking which was pulled low over his
bushy white eyebrows and contrasted, even
in its dingy grayness, with the darkness of his
complexion. His eyes peered forth upon the
world with an evil, intelligent look. His face
was furrowed with wrinkles, all but the skin
over his cheekbones. This was smooth as a
baby's and tended to accent his already high
cheekbones. His brows were drawn together
and two extremely deep lines ran vertically
between his eyes. His feet were bound with
rags and he aided his walking by using a long
crooked stick which was worn smooth and
shiny by continual use. Old Grund, as he was
called, crept slowly and painfully along to the
bazaar el-Attarin, the market of perfumery,
where he seated himself inaconspicuous place.
He was the first arrival at the bazaar, but soon
other beggars came, Jewish money changers
appeared, and perfume sellers arrived and
opened their shops. They started the mixing
of clear colored liquids in tiny viands, and a
heavy, vague odor gradually filled the bazaar.
Later the customers came. Sheiks in from the
desert were buying perfume for their wives
and daughters. Women, with beautiful black
lace veils concealing their features, bought
perfumes to enhance their chamis and perhaps
gain favor with their husbands. The beggars
immediately set up a wail in whining, monoto-
nous voices, "In the name of Allah give alms-
in the name of Allah give alms." The dreamy
odors of the perfumes, the gloomy wails of
beggars, the whir of wings of pigeons and
the gesticulating, chattering shop keepers all
combined in forming a depressing atmosphere,
steeped in the mysteries of the East.
The Koran, religious book of the Moslems,
teaches that alms should be given freely to the
poor. The customers of the bazaar lawfully
avoided these donations by saying simply,
"May Allah satisfy all thy wants." And they
passed on. They gave to no beggar until they
came to Old Grund. No person, rich or poor,
passed him by without giving him alms. His
eyes had a strong, hypnotising quality that
seemed to read the very thoughts of all he
looked at. No one could resist his "In the
name of Allah give almsl' which he repeated
over and over in a high, penetrating voice
that fell unpleasantly on the ear. He placed
all his alms in a strong camel skin bag which
hung from his waist. The morning passed,
the noon and the afternoon filed monotonously
by. The steady drone of the market had the
effect of a drug upon one's senses. Always
Grund sat at attention, never moving his body,
always keeping up the steady, shrill wail, "In
the name of Allah give alms."
He did not leave the bazaar until the shades
of night had folded long black arms about
everything. Then only did the Beggar Grund
move. He walked slowly back to the huge man-
sion from which he had come in the morning.
The door creaked behind him and he was lost
AAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAQAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALA 444
When Grund entered the house, it was as
black and cold as the night outside. He felt
his way with his staff into a far corner of the
room. There he found garments and exchanged
his rags for them. He placed his rags into a
box, and called sharply in Arabic for a ser-
vant. The servant, a young negro, silently ap-
peared with a dull blue light, which flashed
and flickered as if the lips of some unseen crea-
ture were gently fanning it. He set the lamp
in the center of the room, disappeared, and
returned bearing a repast of steaming green
tea and barley loaves. Grund silently ate the
loaves and sipped the tea, then bade the ser-
vant to depart with the dishes. Grund was
now dressed in robes and turban of white satin.
On his feet he wore yellow embroidered san-
dals. His transformation from beggar to a
wealthy merchant was astounding.
He took the flickering candle and slowly
tread his way through the mansion, stopping
to peep into the rooms. They were all elabor-
ately furnished and gave forth a musty odor,
as if they had been closed for years. From
one room to another he passed, handling rare
pieces of pottery and mosaic, resting for a
moment in some richly ornamented chair or
divan. Finally he descended a long flight of
stone steps and reached a room with a small
heavy iron door. He opened the door and
went in. The room was small with a low ceil-
ing. There were no windows, as the room was
in the center of the house, far below the
ground. The floor was padded with rich
Oriental rugs. The walls were covered with
tapestries of dark colored velvets embroidered
with threads of gold and silver. The candle
cast weird, uncertain rays of light about the
small room. In one corner stood a huge, iron
chest, studded with gold. Within it lay heaps
of glittering coins, the returns of his hypnotis-
ing eye. In front of the chest, an incense burn-
er slowly poured forth clouds of fragrant
smoke which hung listlessly on the air. Grund
seated himself on a chair made of gold and
upholstered with light blue velvet. He emp-
tied his camel skin bag into his lap and ran
his long, bony fingers through the small heap
of gold. His eyes sparkled greedily as he
counted the money and emptied it into the
chest. Surely, he thought, if he had but a little
more he would be happy and would live the
remainder of his solitary life in comfort. "I
shall beg for just another week, then stop,"
mused the man. He did not admit it even to
himself, but in his heart he knew that because
of his lust for gold, he would never stop beg-
ging, he also knew that because of an East-
ern drug called morah, he would never be
happy, not if his small room contained all the
gold in the world. Grund placed some powdered
morah in the incense burner. It smouldered and
diffused a heavy black smoke throughout the
room. In a few minutes Grund fell into a
stupor. The events of his past life marched
swiftly before him in a long, blurred, ghost-
like procession. He saw himself as a child, al-
ways wishing and scheming to get what he did
not have. He saw himself as a young man,
and saw his joy and surprise when he realized
his gift of hypnotic eyes. As he gradually put
to use this strange power over people, he saw
himself fall from merchant to a mere mendi-
cant, but simultaneously become the richest
man in all Tripoli. Finally he saw himself be-
coming addicted to the drug which had
brought on the stupor.
All the scenes blurred together and became
one vast whirling circle. He grew very dizzy
watching it and finally fell from his chair
with a crash. There he lay for an hour or
more. There he would lie every night. Every
day he would beg for alms at the bazaar,
until his body, his mind, and even his myster-
ious gift finally succumbed to their dread

Are you sure when you saw the first snowfall

From Paradise dropping, from an Angel's
Are you sure the sun is a planet of light?
Or is it God's laugliter enfolding the world,

' he fog had clung about the city all even-
ing, and now great rain drops fell through
the mist and spattered on the pavements. A
dark stooped figure, wrapped in a ragged
rain coat, turned the corner and started down
the avenue. His coat collar was turned up to
protect his neck, his hat was pulled down over
his eyes, and he walked in an aimless manner,
glancing neither toward the tall silent build-
ings, nor the street, where reflections from
the arc lights gleamed hazily on the wet as-
phalt. He seemed unconscious of the rain,
which beat about him, and of the few strag-
glers, who passed him in the gloom. He stum-
bled along as if he were moving in a dream,
and had no idea of where he was going-and
cared not at all. If one had searched, he
would have found no money in his pockets,
only a queer piece of iron, and a little
crumpled picture of a woman with a child in
A street clock chimed on some corner and
the sounds came struggling through the mist.
The two muffled notes must have penetrated
the mind of the man, for he stopped, and
stood still there in the center of the side-
The rain pattered on his old coat for per-
haps five minutes before he moved. Then,
straightening his back and pulling his hat
down further over his face, he wheeled and
started back in the direction from which he
had come. He walked rapidly as if he wished
to accomplish something before he again lost
his courage. Splashing through the water that
was beginning to form in pools in the uneven
places of the pavement, he passed deserted,
gloomy stores, that during the day were busy
places of business. No one passed him, every
one seemed to have gone in out of the rain.
Once in awhile a car flashed by, but it made
the street seem even more lonely when it was
The solitary figure at last paused before an
alley opening. Peeping from under his hat, first
up the street and then down, he entered the

ran, sounded loudly between the walls of the
buildings, He slowed down to a walk and
gazed ahead into the darkness. Stopping before
an almost hidden door, he tried cautiously to

against somethingg the match flickered and
went out. All was in darkness again until an-
other match scratched and another flame
Still moving forward the man seemed to
have reached more familiar ground. He had
surely been there before, for he tread with
more assurance. Other matches replaced the
burned ones until the dark figure reached a
tall glass case, which contained some objects
that could not be distinguished by the light of
the match. This case was evidently his destin-
ation. He opened the long doors and extracted
several of the objects. As he passed them
and in reclosing the case the name on
the wax wrapper of a well-known bread was
But bread did not end his search. With the
aid of more little yellow flames, he reached
shelves on which were cans of soups, meats,
vegetables and fruits.
He filled his pockets and a large paper bag
he had found, with the foodg and then made
his way, hesitatingly, by the light of his last
match, to the back entrance of the grocery
The damp air met himg and as he stepped
out, the rain hit him in the face. After re-
fastening the door, and pulling down his hat,
he slopped up the alley and into the street.
There were only a few blocks which he
must traverse to reach home-blocks he had
often walked on the way to the same store-
but then he had had money to pay for the
things he had brought away. What miles of
terror they seemed tonight with the raindrops
tapping mockingly on the paper bag. Any
moment some one might demand to see the
contents of that bag. They would know he
must have stolen them, for no stores were open
at-it must be almost--three o'clock in the
A belated car thundered up the street.
Quickly the man hid in the door way, clutching
tightly his burden. His heart almost stopped
beating as it slowed up near himg but it only
reduced its speed so that it might turn the
corner and roared on.
He tried to reassure himself. No one would
notice him in the mist and rain, if he kept
in the shadow as much as possible. And be-
sides wasn't he going to pay for the things
as soon as he found work? Every thing would
be all right then.
Yet he was continually listening for foot-
steps behind him, and groaned at the jeering
of the raindrops on the paper bag.
He had stolen that needful food, He had
broken into a store and stolen it! He had
taken it at night when no one was near-or
had some one been near to see him? Were
they following him? Was that a footstep?
He stopped and listened intently.
No, how silly, it was only the echoes of the
splash of his own footsteps on the lonely
street. His door was just a few steps away.
No one could reach him when he was safe
Ah, he reached it, that little home in the
tenements. He was greeted by the wail of a
child. He could appease the hunger of his
He was not a criminal-he never would be.
The money would be given to the grocer from
his very next pay check. and perhaps he
might get a job tomorrow!

Today I went through wonderland.
Gay colors there abound-
A pale moon in a pink sky,
And gold was all around.
The spangles bright on aspens blonde
Were tweaked by prankish breeze.
A pale moon in a dark sky,
Above far purple trees.
Today I went through wonderland
Where all is drab and brown-
A gray sky and a sad wind,
And dead leaves flutter down.
Today I went through wonderland.
The air was cold and clear.
The white flakes fell in silence
To shroud another year.

Camival time in Vienna was the setting
for "Pickles," one of the most glamorous and
gorgeous operettas ever given at North Central.
It was presented on Friday and Saturday
nights, December 18 and 14-. The musical show
was truly an all school production, the music
being directed by Mr. Rice, the dancing by
Miss Pinkham, the speaking and dramatic
parts by Miss Jones, the costumes by Miss
Dalquest and the scenery by Mr. Youngman.
The story of "Pickles" is one filled with
beauty, romance, mystery, color and excite-
ment. Jonas Pennington, an American million-
aire pickle manufacturer, arrives in Vienna
with his daughter, June, in the midst of pre-
parations for the annual carnival. He is amazed
and dismayed when he finds out that Jones,
his advertising expert, has been advertising
Peter Piper Pickles too well. Lady Vivian, a
very charming and wealthy English lady and
an old friend of Jonas, also comes to Vienna
at this time in an annual search for her daugh-
ter who disappeared near here at carnival time
when only a baby. Kinski, the pompous police-
man, aided by his faithful sleuths, Bumski and
Rumski, tries to substitute the lost child of
Lady Vivian in hopes of marrying her for
A band of gypsies led by Jigo, their chieftan,
and his supposed daughter, Ilona, visit the
carnival. Events lead all to a mystical pool
in a gypsy camp that reveals the face of Lady
Vivian De1ancy's daughter. Arthur Crefont, a
poor but promising artist, wins the recognition
of his art and the hand of the fascinating June
Pennington. Lady Vivian says "yes" to Mr.
Pennington and the supposed gypsy girl, Ilona,
is returned to her mother.
The entire stage was used. All the action
took place in the innyard where the carnival
was conducted. During the carnival the place
was full of color and laughter of the tourists
and gypsies who were making "whoopee."
American tourists, Venetians and Gypsy vag-
abonds all helped carry the action from the
fast moving cabaret scene through the bril-
liant camival time to the quiet love making.
A magic silver pool, moonlight pictures by the
Gypsy and Venetian choruses and the haunt-
ing balcony love scenes were some of the
unusual features. The gorgeous costumes and
novel scenery were great factors in giving at-

Others in the cast were: Ray Hendricks,
Hans Maier, the proprietor of the Wurtzel-
praeter Inn, Virginia Ludcke, Louisa, a wait-
ress, John Hayes and Vernon Boland, waitersg
Viola Mason, a Gypsy girl, and Merwin
Peebles, a tramp.
The five dances directed by Miss Pinkham
were very colorful with their tambourines, cos-
tumes, and clever steps. Black and White
Steps, Romany Patteran, A la Carte and
Dream Children are the names of the dances.
Kathleen Flynne did "Gaya" a solo Gypsy
In connection with the class play and the
operetta an acknowledgment of the fine work
done by the stage crew should be made. The
boys of the crew, assisted by Mr. Youngman
and Miss Jones, spent many hours in repaint-
ing old scenery and building new. The set for
the operetta was built in the shop together
with many of the properties. The boys spent
much of their time after school and after
dinner working to make North Central's dra-
matic productions a success.
A large part of the credit for the smooth
functioning and clever appearance of the
scenes of this semesters plays and programs
should be given to the fellows on the crew.
Clinton Bailie is stage manager. Bill Rodgers
and Randall Beebe had charge of painting the
scenery. Other assistants were Jack Worley,
Charles Vedder, Thomas Farmer, Ronald
Rhode and Austin Soderquist.

A comedy riot from start to finish was the
three-act play, "Nothing But the Truth," given
by the senior dramatics class under the direc-
tion of Martha Pearl Jones on Friday and
Saturday nights, November B and 9. An un-
usual feature was the fact that the play was
presented by a complete double cast. Both
acted in a truly professional manner.
"Nothing But the Truth" was one of the
most delightful and successful comedies that
a senior class has ever had the privilege of
presenting. It had a three year run in New
York and an eighteen month run in Chicago.
The action takes place in the uptown office
of a wealthy New York stock broker and is
continued to the drawing room of his Long
Island summer home. During the course of a
conversation in the office, Bob Bennett bets
310,000 which his sweetheart, Gwendolyn Ral-
ston has entrusted to him to invest and double
for her, that he can tell the absolute truth for
twenty-four hours. Mr. Ralston, Dick Don-
nelly, an office partner, and Van Dusen, an
elusive customer, thinking that this is impos-
sible quickly take him up on it.
From the first the odds work against poor
Bob and the situations that he gets into are
screamingly funny. The three men harass him
day and night by all kinds of questions, all
of which he has to answer truthfully or lose
the S10,000, together with the heart and hand
of the girl that he loves. In this case he finds
out that the truth pays but oh, how dear!
Sometimes the truths hurt and white lies are
the kindest, but he is denied the use of even
Bob gets himself and all others connected
with the het in hot water and in rather tick-
lish situations, but he does not waver. His
life's future is hanging in the balance and
things are looking black indeed when he is
saved only by the timely end of the twenty-
four hours. Every thing is explained satisfac-
torily and no real harm is done after all.

Organizations mean nothing in school life
unless they accomplish something. North Cen-
tral's hand is probably the oldest enterprise
in the school and one of the biggest promoters
of student activities.
The band has done more than its share
in providing pep and spirit at the games for
the past fall. Very favorable comment was
received on the stunt which the band presented
between halves at the annual Thanksgiving
game. First a huge "U S" was formed by the
band boys who then played "The Star
Spangled Banner. Next the letters "L C" took
shape and the Lewis and Clark school song
was played. Finally they formed the letters
"N C" and proudly played their own school
battle song, "Red and Black."
The officers have been conscientious in their
work. Those with the rank of handmaster are:
Harry Hale, who is directing the sax sextetg

The full band with an enrollment of IOS is
divided into smaller units to allow luore chance
for developing each boy's ability. The concert

The art department proper is divided into
two sectionsg special and fine arts, and applied

which is perhaps the best known class of

work displayed by members of the class.
A study of art such as is offered in North
Central not only gives practical knowledge
and technique but also gives an appreciation
of beauty in the school and home.

One of the oldest enterprises in school and
one of the most hem-fieial to North Central is
the orchestra. 'l'oo much credit can not he
given to it for its part in all musical activities.
This semester there were fifty-one in the class,
the largest orchestra in the history of thc
school. Under the direction of C. Olin Rice,
the memhers of the organization practice once
a week, for which they receive one-fourth
credit at the end of the semester.
As usual the orchestra played between acts
of the class play and accompanied the oper-
etta. This last service was one of its most out-
standing of the semester. A special convoca-
tion for the purpose of hringing the students
in closer contact with classical music was given
hy the orchestra on VVm-dnesday and Thursday,
November 16 and 17, during' the first period.
The following numlu-rs were included in the

This year, debate activities in North Cen-
tral were given their first sendoff by a try-
out in October to select the members of half
the squad, the negative team. Contestants pre-
pared three minute speeches on the proposition
that athletics as now conducted are not detri-
The other half of the squa.d, the affirmative
team, was chosen by a tryout two weeks later
speaking on the opposite contention that ath-
letics are detrimental. Preliminary to both
these contests, all aspirants to debate positions
had spoken on either side of the topic and a
dozen or so for each side were declared eli-
gible for the final team tryouts.
Elsie Meyer, Richard McLane and Charles
Campbell were chosen for the negative team
and Myrtle Meadows, Russel Potter and Fred
Lawson for the affirmative.
The formal stating of the semesters debate
question is, "Resolved, That inter-collegiate
and inter-scholastic athletics as at present con-
ducted are detrimental, detrimental to mean
more harmful than beneficial." This was the
topic for all discussion this semester.
North Central participated in the state de-
bate league again this year and was given a
busy schedule to work on.
The first contest of the year was with
Sprague high school. The season was given a
good start by a decision in favor of North
Central awarded to the negative team.
The next debate was with ltitzville, partici-
pated in by the affirmative team. This was
another state debate. Although the decision
went to Ritzville the North Central debaters
delivered interesting and logical speeches.
Both teams were contestants in the next
debate session, which was a dual encounter
with Coeur d' Alene. The negative team went
to the lake city school and the affirmative
team argued in the school auditorium. No
formal judges decision was given for either
The big debate of the year and the one
most important to North Central students was
the triangular contest with Lewis and Clark
and Hillyard, with the Harvard cup as a
trophy. The negative team went to the Lewis
and Clark auditorium and the affirmative
team met Hillyard in the North Central aud-
itorium, both debates being on the same night.
North Central debaters were coached by

To determine the ones to whom letters are
awardcd is the chief purpose of the athletic
board. A certain amount of playing in games
merits a letter in football, baseball, tennis,
swimming and track.
The athletic board consists of the princi-
pal, vice principal, girls' athletic director, boys'
athletic director, captains, managers and
coaches of all the teams. Formerly, the man-
ager and coach remained on the board only
as long as their particular sport was in season,
but now they are active members all semester.

Originally the Scriptorian society was a
club for all girls who were interested in writ-
ing. Now, however, the membership is limited
to twenty-five girls having four final B's or
better in English who may submit original
stories, essays or poems which are graded by a
committee of judges. Those ranking highest are
admitted. This year Scriptorians have devoted
themselves exclusively to short-story writing.
Three girls are chosen to write stories for
each meeting. A different type of story such
as mystery, adventure, moral character or
atmosphere story is used each time. These
are written from key-sentences read at the

The Cattonian club was organized in 1926,
by Katherine Kiesling, the first president.
The purpose of the club is to interest girls
in debating. Several debates are given each
semester by the members.
It was decided that the club be named for
Mrs. Catt, prominent reform worker, hence
the name Cattonian. Each girl takes an active
part in the projects put over by the group.
During the year each member appears on the
program either in a debate or gives a report
on some literary or current topic. About twice
a semester the meetings are given over to
entertainment in the form of dancing, singing
and recitations. Twice a semester the girls
gather for a social meetingg one of which is
At the annual Pow Wow the Cattonians sell

Sinee 1921, when a group of boys who were
interested in radio organized for the purpose
of promoting a general interest along radio
lines, the Radio club has been busy in under-
taking and developing many radio projects.
Through the construction and operation of
a complete radio broadcasting set, the Radio
club, under the direction of A. L. Smith has
been able to broadcast the name of North Cen-
tral throughout the West, in many parts of the
East and in Canada. Communications from all
parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana
and British Columbia are often received stat-
ing that the programs heard from KFIO are

ment furnished all incoming freshman girls
with big sisters and all girls entering North

operation with the community service commit-
tee of the Boys' Federation, this department
helped make the orphans at the Spokane Chil-
dren's Home happy by furnishing a Santa

Tea and the Girls' League Party were the big
successess accomplished by the entertainment
department. The personal efficiency depart-
ment backed the girls during the tennis tourna-
ment and furnished recreation for the girls in

ming. A very interesting study of vocations
and places of business has been conducted by
the vocational department. The clerical depart-
ment has rendered service in the study halls
and the library.

by a faculty adviser and a student department
head. The departments are divided into num-
erous committees, and each committee is under
the direction of a committee chairman. Girls

Review of Football Season
THE GONZAGA FRESHMAN GAME
With only one week's practice the Indians
started the season off with a bang by playing
a scoreless tie with the powerful Gonzaga uni-
versity freshmen on the playfield. Although
the play was somewhat ragged the team
showed flashes of real power and fight. The
ball was kept in the middle of the field
throughout the game and neither team was
able to put the oval across the goal line.
Colburn was the outstanding star of the
game for the Indians, making large gains
through the center of the line. Krause and
Cozzetti shone for the freshman aggregation.
TH E XVILBUR GAME
In this game the North Central gridders
showed a great improvement over their play-
ing in the first contest. Wilbur had one of
the strongest teams in the Inland Empire, hav-
ing defeated Gonzaga and VVenatchee before
playing the Indians, but the North Siders
proved too strong for them, winning 26 to 0.
Outstanding players on the line were Her-
man, Johnson and Carbon, although the whole
forward wall functioned well. Colburn and
Everett McNew were the limelights in the
backfield. McNew would skirt the ends for
long gains and Colburn would plunge the line
for the rest of the yardage needed.
THE VVALLA WALLA GAME
Walla VValla found the heavier and more
experienced North Central team too powerful
for them to stop, and the Indians easily de-
feated them 38 to 0 on the North Central play-
From the beginning to the end the Red Men
showed superiority over the "Blue Devils" from
Walla Walla. Colburn's line plunging and
Frank Sell's end runs were the features of
the game, bringing the crowd to its feet time
after time. This was Sell's first game as he
had been ineligible until the second quarter.
He proved to be the outstanding halfback for
Schnellner, a substitute quarterback, and
Barker, tackle, were the outstanding men for
THE LEWISTON NORMAL GAME
Still smarting from the defeat handed them
by the Indians last year, the Lewiston teach-
ers evened matters this year by defeating the
Indians 13 to 7 on the playfield.
After finding out that they could not make
any yardage through the strong Indian line,
the normal boys, with Lovejoy doing all of the
hurling, unleashed an aerial attack that com-
pletely fooled the North Central eleven.
Lewiston made both touchdowns from passes
while the warriors gained theirs by the straight
line bucking of Colburn.
Herman, Johnson, Schmidt and Carbon were
the mainstays on the line, breaking through
the Lewiston forward wall time after time to
throw the teacher backs for losses. This was
the first game in three years that the Indians
THE STADIUM HIGH GAME
Displaying an offense that could not be
stopped and a defense that could not be pene-
trated, the Indians played havoc with the Sta-
dium high school team in the Stadium bowl
at Tacoma, defeating them 4-0 to 6 in the only
out of town game of the season.
North Central's superiority was unquestion-
able as they made a total of 54-6 yards gained
to their opponents' 66. Stadium's only touch-
down came in the second quarter when Wil-
liamson intercepted a pass and ran 45 yards
to the goal.
Colburn was the outstanding player for the
Indians, carrying the ball 80 times for a total
of 24-1 yards, or an average of eight yards a
carry. Beeson, Schmitt, Herman, Johnson and
Carbon also played stellar football.
Willard, Haire and Casperson on defense
and Colburn and McMillan on offense were
the shining lights in the Tacoma lineup.
THE HILLYARD GAME
Playing before the largest crowd that ever
witnessed a contest between these two schools,
the North Central Indians easily defeated her
closest challengers for the city race title 82 to 0
on the playfield.
As the Panthers had defeated Lewis and
Clark and Gonzaga they were quite confident

that they could win over the North Siders but
the powerful Indian team handed them their
worst drubbing of the year.
The feature of the game was Cox's fifty
yard run for a touchdown on North Central's
first play of the game. Colburn, Johnson, Her-
man and Carbon were the outstanding players
for the Indians while Gillman and Freeborg
were the limelights for the Panthers.
THE GONZAGA GAME
In what proved to be the hardest game of
the season, the Indians finally emerged on the
long side of the 21 to 7 score, against Gonzaga
in the Gonzaga stadium. The Irish boys were
very confident of victory and fought to the
final whistle, but the powerful Indians were
not to be denied and fought just as hard.
Metrovich wa.s easily the outstanding per-
former for Gonzaga, his runs around ends and
his deadly passes keeping the Indian boys wor-
ried. Kearns and Seale also played good ball
in the hackfield. Brickner and Lindbergh were
the main stays on the line.
Colburn played his usual great game at full
and broke through for many large gains. Welch
was the outstanding halfback for the North
Siders, time after time squirming and twisting
his way past Gonzaga tacklers. The whole In-
dian line showed up well, but Thyrian, John-
son and Carbon were by far outstanding.
THE W. S. C. FROSH "B" GAME
Although the Indians outfought the heavier
frosh "B" team from Pullman, the boys from
W. S. C. emerged from the fracas on the long
end of the 13 to 7 score.
The frosh scored in the first period, after
a series of line bucks and end runs brought
the ball to the Indian ten yard line. Hughes
raced the remaining distance for the first score.
The try for point was converted.
North Central made its lone touchdown in
the third period, after a W. S. C. penalty put
the ball on the outsiders one yard line. Colburn
smashed over center for the only counter for
the Indians. Schmitt converted the try for
In the fourth quarter Hughes ran 4-0 yards
around left end for the last touchdown of the
game. The try for point went wide. From then
on the game was played in the W. S. C. ter-
ritory, but the Indians were unable to score.
Welch, Dech, Schmitt and Colburn were the
outstanding players for North Central, while
Hughes was all of the limelight for the college
THE LEWIS AND CLARK GAME
Unleashing a driving attack that was un-
stoppable the Indians defeated the Tigers 19
to 0 to win the city championship for thc
fourth consecutive year.
Constant fumbles proved very costly to the
Indians, as they twice lost the ball in scoring
distance. Another tough break the Indians en-
countered was in the second quarter when Col-
burn crashed over fer a touchdown, which was
not counted as one of his teammates was called
for holding and penalized 5 yards.
Much credit must be given to the Tigers
for the gallant fight they put up against the
more experienced north side team. It can
easily be said that the south siders played
their best game of the season.
Much credit must be given to Ike Peterson.
He not only stopped most of the North Cen-
tral plays, but he also made as much yardage
as any other player on the field.
Mason, Dech, Johnson, Carbon and Herman
all played the best game of their career. Her-
man and Colburn were both injured in the tus-
sel and had to be taken out of the game.
North Central made most of its yardage
from straight line bucks and end runs, while
the Tigers largely played a passing game. In
the last quarter Lewis and Clark started a
great aerial attack but the Indians knocked
down pass after pass. The game ended with
the ball deep in the Tiger territory.
THE SHRINE GAME
This year Spokane high school players had
the honor of playing in the first Shrine Bene-
fit game for crippled children in Spokane. The
sports writers from the three Spokane papers
picked thirty players from Inland Empire
schools and thirty from the four Spokane high
North Central placed nine boys on the
squad: Roland Johnson, Carl Carbon, Stanley
Colburn, Horton Herman, Phil Schmitt, Dan
Dech, Everett McNew, Marion Malmoe and
Franey Cox. As Herman was injured in the
Lewis and Clark game and could not play,
Tom Mason was chosen in his place.
The ball used to start the game, kicked
off by Carl Carbon, was autographed by
President Hoover. After the kickoff, the ball
was replaced by another in order to keep the
Hoover ball as a souvenir.
The Inland Empire team defeated the city
team 20 to 6. In the first quarter the Spokane
team had the ball within their opponents' five
yard line three times, but did not have the
power to punch the ball over for touchdowns.
The loss of Stanley Colburn, who had an
injured knee and could not play, was greatly
felt at these moments.
After the game the players of both teams
were honored at a banquet given in the Ma-
sonic Temple. For his services to the crippled
children, each player was presented with a
leather bound certificate with his name en-
graved upon it.
This was the first game of its kind in Spo-
kane. Like contests will continue as annual
affairs of a noteworthy event in the fall sports
COACH "RED" REESE
Coach "Red" Reese has probably had as
colorful an athletic career as any one could
wish. Mr. Reese's prep school days were spent
at Pullman high school, where he won honors
in basketball, football and track. VVhile on the
basketball team they won the state tourna-
ment the first year and placed second the
next year. It is interesting to note that Pull-
man defeated North Central for the champion-
Reese entered Washington State
1921, a pledge to the Kappa Sigma fraternity.
During his frosh year "Red" played football
and basketball and won his numerals in both.
Next followed three brilliant years of playing
on the varsity team. In 1924 and 1925, his last
two years, Reese was elected captain of the
squad for both years and was rated as one
of the best guards on the Pacific coast.
Reese became a. member of the grey "W"
club in which only men who have won letters
in a major sport can belong, and later was
elected into the Crimson Circle, an honorary
fraternity for upperclassmen. Reese graduated
in 1925, then became coach of athletics at
As football coach at this small school Reese
has a very presentable record, winning 18
games, losing two and tying one. In his first
year as basketball coach his team finished
seventh in the state tournament at Seattle.
During his second year they finished fifth and
his last year they won the district champion-
Reese started the first track team at this
school and every year had from two to four
men go to the state meet held at Pullman.
"Red" entered North Central as head bas-
ketball and baseball coach and assistant foot-
ball coach. His basketball team won the city
championship and placed second in the state
tournament at Seattle. The team lost its last
game to Olympia for the championship of the
Mr. Reese's baseball team easily won the
city championship, only losing one game and
that was to Lewis and Clark Nothing need be
said about this year's football team for it can
easily be seen that it was one of the best
teams in the history of the school. And it was
through the hard work of "Red" that the
team was so successful.
Reese is coaching basketball again this year
and will probably have another city champion-
ship if not a state one to his credit at the close
of the season.
LAURENCE "MUI.E" JAC KY
Much credit should be given to this new
comer to the school, who although he has been
here but a short time, has already won the
hearts of all who know him.
Mr. Jacky came to North Central from Col-
ville, where hc was coach of athletics, to be
baseball coach and assistant football coach.
His work as assistant to Reese has been out-
standing. Jacky had charge of the line and
turned out the best line in the city.
Laurence is a graduate of VVashington State
college, where he received his letters in foot-
ball and basketball. He played on the team
that beat Southern California 9 to 0, a feat
which means a great deal as VV. S. C. has only
beaten them twice since they have been playing
against each other.
Dl'1L'l'.X HONOR AVVA RD
Stanley Colburn was awarded the Delta
honor award at thc annual football banquet
held at the Silver Grill. This award is given
each semester to the player whose conduct on
and off the field has been of the greatest
value to the team.
Stanley completed four successful years at
fullback and is rated as the best high school
fullback in the state of Washington,
Facts About the Football Players
STANLEY COLBURN, FULLBACK
For four seasons Stan has played stellar
hull for North Central. Every year opposing
teams have tried to stop him, but few times
have they succeeded. Colburn has been rated
by coaches as the best high school fullback
ever seen in the Spokane schools.
CARI. CARBON, GUARD
Carl's great defensive work has been the
feature of games all season. His vicious tack-
ling, especially when running down punts kept
many Indian opponents from making gains.
Carbon did the place kicking, and had the
honor to kick the "Hoover" ball in the Shrine
game. Carl finished his third and last season
at guard for North Central.
CAPTAIN PHIL "DUTCH" SCHMITT.
In Phil Schmitt, North Central had another
exceptional guard. Whenever the Indians called
for a play on Phil's side of the line, there was
always a hole ready for the ball carrier. Phil
did the majority of the panting and also
kicked many trys for point after touchdowns.
ROLAND JOHNSON, CENTER
Johnson played a strong game at center for
the Indians all year. As a snapperback, Jolm-
son has no equal in the city high schools. Very
little yardage was made over the center of the
line hy opposing teams for "Holly" was always
there to stop them. Roland finished the second
and last year for the Indians.
NORTON HERMAN, END
Coach Reese shifted Herman from tackle
position to end at the start of the season. Hor-
ton played a fine game at this position all
year. This was also Horton's second and last
year for the Indians.
DAN DECH, TACKLE
Dan was another unequalled tackle on thc
team. He was a tower of strength both on
defense and on offense. Dech ended his fourth
successful season for the Red and Black.
HOWARD MC INERNY, TACKLE
Howard is one of the main reasons why
there are holes for the backfield men to go
through. He is big and fast and knows how
to put his opponents out of the play. He is
one of the best defensive players in the city.
Howard will have one more year of playing
for North Central.
GILBERT MC GINNIS, GUARD
McGinnis is a small but hard hitting player.
He finished his second and last season for the
Indians. McGinnis has been outstanding for
his fighting spirit.
HOWARD MC NEW, HALFBACK
Howard is one of the hardest hitting half-
hacks for his weight in the city. He is effi-
cient in taking out opposing tackles and in
knocking down passes. This is Howa.rd's second
and last season for North Central.
EVERETT MC NEW, HALFBACK
Everett is the other half of the McNew
brothers. Ev has been a consistant ground
gainer on the team all season. He ranked
second in scoring and made long gains from
scrimmage. This was Ev's first and last sea-
son for the Indians.
EUGENE SCHATZ, TACKLE
Schatz was a reserve tackle and a good one.
He was one of the largest men on the team.
This was Gene's first season for North Cen-
WINTON "KAYO" WELCH
Welch earned a name as North Central's
best running halfhack. He is small hut com-
paetly built and his twisting while running
made it hard for tacklers to down him. His
long l'llnS thrilled North Central fans all sea-
GUY MILLER, END
Guy Miller is a reserve end who could al-
ways be counted upon to give a good account
of himself whenever called upon. Guy is also
one of those that will be missing next year.
JOE BEESON, HALFBACK
Joe is a new comer from Cashmere, Wash-
ington. He has gained a reputation as an in-
terference runner in the Indian hackfield. He
is quick at starting and picks his holes in the
line like a veteran.
TOM MASON, END
Tom was easily one of the outstanding ends
of the city. His ability to catch passes was
proved in the Lewis and Clark game. Tom is
also a good defensive player.
LOREN JENNINGS, TACKLE
Jennings is a reserve tackle who could be
counted upon to give a good account of him-
self. He is big and proved hard to move out
of the play.
VVALLACE ACTON, M A N AGER
"Wally" probably had one of the hardest
jobs of anyone and it truthfully can be said
that he filled the requirements of his position
to the letter. Acton played tackle on the team
until he was ineligible by age. Much credit
should be given to him for his cheerful atti-
tude at all times. There are few managers that
can keep a smile on their faces after taking
care of all the wants of a bunch of football
players, but Acton met his duties cheerfully.
FRANEY COX, QUARTERBACK
Franey played his first and last season for
North Central as quarterback. He was a heady
signal barker and carried the ball in fine style.

EVERETT HENDERSON, FULLBACK
Ev has been Colburn's understudy. Al-
though he weighs but 14-4 pounds he hit the
line hard enough to make a gain each time.
His defensive work was especially outstanding.
FRANCIS "DUKE" THYRIAN, GUARD
"Duke" is new to North Central, coming
from Hawaii. He played a hard game at guard
and caused his opponents a great deal of
trouble. Tllyrian will be one of the few men
of this year's squad back next year.
BILL BRUBAKER, END
Although this was Bill's first year on the
squad, he played good ball for the Indians.
Another year of experience will develop Bill
into one of the best ends in the city.
AL DIBBLEE, QUARTERBACK
Al alternated with Franey Cox at calling
signals this season. He did most of the pass-
ing and was safety man on the team. More
than once Al intercepted passes and ran them
hack for long gains.

VVHO HAS THE ANSWER?
I ask a. simple question,
This only truth I wish:
Are all fishermen liars,
Or do only liars fish?
Catty Junior: I thought your dad was going
to send you away to school this winter?
Senior: C'l'he flapper was somewhat bitter
in her explanationj So far he hasn't been able'
to find a fashionable reform school.
Here was a son again asking for another
check! Every month he spent at college was
costing his father more and more.
"I had no idea," father said sternly as he
reached for his check book, "that an education
costs so much."
"Oh, it's terribly high, father," was the
reply. "And you know that I'm one of those
that studies the least."
Modern Father: Large families are a nui-
sance. It's so hard to remember which one is
responsible for which dents in the car.
