The saying of the wise men does not apply to this book,
for of the making of this book there is an end. The end of the
making has come. What it is we well know. NVhat the end
of the hook will be We cannot tell. That remains with you.
In the making of this book we have spent many hours-
we have worked at it and we have played. We have tried not
to play when we have Worked, nor to Work when We played.
VVe have all worked together-editor, staff and board. We have
tried to share each other 's burdens that each one 's load might
be as light as possible. In so doing, we have learned to know
each other and our class very well. For this privilege we .are
VVe have tried to make this book a book of the North
High School of 1916. It does not portray the North High of
1915 nor of 1917. To the underelassmen it represents but the
passing of another mile stone. lVhat lies beyond their books
Time shall record. To the seniors it represents the comple-
tion of a journey. As its pages run on, the train of High
School Life is nearing its destination. As the last leaf is turned
the hell is sounding. Close the covers. The class of 1916 has
G75-Q HERE has always been some
E? doubt among the students at
North High School as to just
what the word Polaris really
means, that is, where it origin-
ated, and how it came to be applied as the title
of our school paper. The following may give the
In the northern part of the heavens is a
great star. To the careless observer, it is only
one of many millions. But let its rays shine
upon the dark way of the weary traveler and it
shows him many unseerfobjects. It is his guid-
ing light. It is the Polar Star. V
In Columbus is a great school. Many people
look into the student life of this school and see
there only the constant devotion to books and
learning. But let some ray of familiarity shine
upon this student life and it reveals many un-
seen incidents. These are the things, humorous
and serious, of this, our school life. The light
that helps to show these is our Polaris.

"SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT."
No man should worry, except as 1'Ug2l1't.lS the struggle of getting his
"daily bread." He who earns his living by doing that which he likes
to do most Qand consequently that whivh he does bestj is the contented
fellow. llis work is his pleasure, and hewho can never find pleasure in
his work will never know what pleasure is,
But the hard thing for the young man is to decide early that kind
of work which he will still enjoy doing at middle age. Again, let us
repeat. it is something to think about.

The Ministrel Wind
A waiidering uiinstrel passes by,
Vifhen the white clouds pile in the clear blue sky,
And his song is fresh and blithe and free,
And his 11ote is echoed by bird and bee.
The wandering minstrel passes by,'
When the sun mounts in the heavens high,
Yet his song is as gay as it was at morn,
XVhen the dew was wet and the day new-born.
The minstvrel pauses on his way,
And stands on the hilltop at elose of day,
And he uiurinurs his song to the ruddy light,
As the golden hall drops out of sight. .
And oft in the night when the raindrops beat,
I hear the elatter of horses' feet,
And there comes a note that is wild and high,
As the Minstrel Wlind goes hurrying by.

"Then the Good Fellows Get Together"
66 NVENTY years from tonight, fellows, twenty years it
is." Runyan seemed to gaze out across years as he
spoke, and he saw as he dreamed, in the golden flicker
of candles, the faces of the men of Beta Psi turned toward him
in the glow. Dale, at the far end of the banquet table, smiled,
and caught Runyan's wistful eyes back from the far away.
Time and future fa.ded again into the dimness and Runyan
finished his speech.
It was the farewell feast with which Beta Psi annually
honored her departing seniors. Resolves to keep all sadness
carefully concealed under shirt-bosoms had made mirth and
merriment. But when the toasts had started round, when
memories that lurked had at last slipped out, the senior men at
Beta Psi recalled almost sacredly the happiness of college
years, and knew the pain of the end.
"Twenty years from tonight, fellows, twenty years it is."
Runyan's dreams, called hack from time to be by the irre-
sistable Billy Dale's grin, came anew as the talk went around.
"lt will he a matter of only a few years when we will be
able to add some noted prefix as Doctor or Professor to our
names. Here is Dr. Robert Grayson, holding down the science
settee,--germ specialist, instructor of future quacks and medi-
cine men,-colleague of-let me introduce to you, gentlemen-
the Herr Professor Earl Craig Hall. I only hope it is a similar
future that awaits all of us. Let 's drink it down to the place
and the hour twenty years ahead.
"lIere's to Beta Psi, drink her down, down, down Z"
The others were on their feet before the words had echoed
into silence, the toast was pledged, and then as if it were a
common desire they all broke into theirold -"stein song,"-
'tFo1' it's always fair weather,
lYhen good fellows get together."
At one o'eloek in the morning the seniors of Beta Psi re-
tired to their rooms. The thought Utwenty years from to-
night," ran through each and every mind. Not another meet-
ing for twenty years. XVould their number be the same or
would Death make the unexpected call? Time alone could tell.

Landing Styx, Hades, l93O.
My Dear Mr. IVest:
VVell, Kenneth, as you are now the principal of North
lligh School, I thought perhaps you might be interested in
knowing what a few of our old classmates are doing now.
This is hot work, so please excuse all inaeeuraeies. You know
I used to be cynical, and didn't believe in any hell, beeause,
as you know, I spent for wastedl four very long years at North
High School, Columbus, Ohio. But I have hadreason to change
my mind and am now sitting on a hot cinder whose tempera-
ture is only a couple of hundred degrees eentigrade, which is
unusually eold on account of a lack of inhabitants to keep the
tires burning. YVilliam llouston, the prominent evangelist, is
reforming the world and our population is decreasing.
The devil, who is now 'Walter llamilton, gave me a graft
as assistant gatekccper, and as such I am obliged to meet all
newcomers and take down their records. I was surprised and
delighted to see coming' toward the gate our old friend Dick
Keyes. I invited him over to dinner, and here are a few start'-
ling facts he put me next to: ,
llarold IVyper, as you know, is guiding the good old ship
of state with a firm hand. Ile says he attributes his success to
his valuable training as class president. George Sturgeon
learned too mueh about graft when treasurer of our elass and
when he "closed" his big bank not very long ago, the angry
mob lynehed him. CI remember when we roasted him.j Par!
don me a moment, tl1ere's a. knock at the gate. lt was Bun
Purcell. Ile ran a fashionable "Monte Carlo," but things got
too slow so he came down here. Marion Fritz is the prominent
widow who figures in so many divorce suits. Emil Stein is
owner of the Busy Bee Stores, but he has been told where to go
so often by dissatisfied customers that we expect him here soon.
You probably have eaten some of his 'chocolate pie, made of
india rubber, lard and water. Apropos of appearing before.
-the public, Frank Lane's overrnling passion to become a second
John Drew has been to some extent consummated by his be-
eoming the popular matinee hero of the Keith circuit. He is
fast becoming wealthy on account of his popularity with mat-
inee girls who tloek in hundreds to see him and revel in eestacy
over his languid air and soulful eyes. Ile stars as the ardent,

impassioned lover of the light, soul-stirring matinee perform-
ance. Frank isn't the only one with a specialty. Leroy Seng
has just signed articles to meet Clare Campbell, who aspires to
take away 'tSengy's" heavyweight. championship. ln his spare
time Leroy collects steins and he has a rare collection for which
he has a great love. Frank Schwartz wanted something easy
to do, so he took up his father 's work in the showcase busi-
ness. lt 's so easy to see through it. llurtha Smith is a. partner
in the showcase business. Don Worley was making good as a
grocer until one day he got too mueh sand in the sugar.
Dick says that on his way down here he saw numerous
signs to this eifect: "Go to the Loudon Bros. Vhemieal Com-
pany for Pure Drugs." Chas. Smith is a Iiery orator in con-
gress. Wie say fiery because the sergeant-at-arms always tires
hiin out. Margaret IVelch is teaching French at Dana Hall.
Excuse me againg another knock at the gate. lt was llarold
Paul, the tailor, who came down to roast his goose. You per-
haps know that Lucile YVllClG1'1l1l1tl1 is the Hiirst lady oi' the
land." James Yllallin has set up a fashion bureau in New York
and is reputed to give out only the latest Paris fashions. 'lt is
said that he has a. confidential agent in Paris with whom he
shares all his troubles and profit. IVe donlt know who she is.
A few of the fellows have done something in the way of inven-
tion. Contrary to all expectations, Oscar Erk became inter-
ested iu mechanical devices and labor-saving machines. lle
has invented a new and perfect slow motion apparatus, known
as the Erk Slow Motion. Ile now devotes his attention to it
and produces it exclusively. Ellery Irving recently applied
for a patent on his new and improved mattress, which is said to
produce remarkably beneficial results, on condition it is used
'continuously from 8 P. M. to 8 A. M. It is the result of the
long experience of the inventor, in fact, Ellery has spent a
large part of his life on the invention. The list 'of testiiiionialfgl
is headed by Arley Eddy, who has used the mattress continii-
ally for a long time. Mr. Abernathy furnishes the hair stuf-
fing. Albert Sutphen joined a traveling concert troupe as
soloist extraordinary. lt was the extraordinary part which
killed the scheme. Knock! Knock! Knock! This time it was
Michael Pepe, who was sent down here by Judge Guerin CYes,
it's Freemanj for running over Rob Keller with his Ford. "It
isn't the injury, it 's the disgrace," wailed the injured man.
NVhat do you think of Secretary of State Dwight D. Gardner's
Foreign policy? l think it is a little too foreign to he well un-

Florence Whitacre was quite an aetress in her day, but
the Shrew has become quite tame by now. Violet Carter also
"trod the boards," but since the l-Suttertlies have tiown away
she is without a suitable vehicle for her expression. We sug-
gest she get a Ford. Bly! there is an awful noise outside, wait
a minute. Guess who it was! lt was Camden Clark. Ile was
chased elear to the very gates by "Bob" Dunn, the editor of
Puck, for submitting one of his drawings to that illustrious
magazine. llerman Long, upon graduation from college, was
offered the position of advertising manager of Saturday Even-
ing Post, but he refused. lle eultivated a distaste for the work
while business manager of the Polaris, because he was ever
troubled by a large crowd waiting for advertising spaee.
-Clara Meyer was elected secretary of the Federation of
Women's tlubs of America at its last meeting. Harold
Twiteliell is the star track man of the New York Athletic Club
and Claudius Forney is starring in the noted Irish Dramatic
Society of New York. Kenna lioeshaar, the eminent physicist,
while experimenting with Beta Rays of radium, was burned in
the toe. The infection traveled quickly upward, while with
alaerity he traveled down here. Frederick Nitsehke, Chris-
tine Anderson, Henry Kelly, Naomi Conway and Ray Swoish
just arrived as a committee of five appointed by the alumni to
obtain a little heat for North lligh. ls it still as eold up there
as it was in 1916? There is a knock at the gate. This is my
busy day. lt was Russell Learned, who was told to come here
by Dwight Gardner, the prominent editor of the Poliee Ga-
zette, for continually bothering him with spring poetry.
VVhewl XYhat was that racket? lt sound as if they were mov-
ing this plaee. Ah! here comes Robert Loekett our official
page, who, by the way, was fatally injured in a football game
between Harvard and Yale. He announces that Juliann VVhite-
hill just drove her twin-six Ford through the gates at 90 miles
per-per week knocking them off their hinges. Oh, well, We
will get our mechanic, Herbert Pepper to fix them. I would
fain write more but it is getting too hot. Our engineer, Mr.
Richard Sirus Moore, has invented a new electrical heating
apparatus and he finally has got it to working. So T will close
and write you later if I hear of any other North "grads"
Hoping to see you soon,

AN OLD BALLAD, RETOLD
Come, list to my tale merry England,
ln the days when Bess was queen,
NVhen lass and lassies did frolic and dance,
And sport upon the green.
There was one lad in Coventry,
NVho loved a maiden fair,
But her smiles she bestowed on another so bold
And her lover was in despair.
So he pinned a verse on their trysting tree
In which his love he confessed, '
And he set his face toward London town,
And onward he sturdily pressed.
Ah, the years passed by, and once more he
Returned unto Coventry town,
But he rode a fine horse with trappings gay,
And wore a rich velvet gown.
And when l1e came unto fair Coventry
For his love he began to inquire,
But the villagers sadly did shake their heads,
"She's been lost for many a year."
Then sadly away rode the lover true,
Away over hill and plain,
And he bitterly wept for his lady love,
NVhom he never would see again.
But beside the road crouched a beggar lass,
All ragged and hungry and cold,
And she cried to him, and his heart leaped upg
Ile had heard that voice of old.
Then down he got from his horse so gay,
And he picked the lass up from the ground,
And he cried, 'AOh, blessed be this day,
For my true love I have found 1"
So off to the church they merrily ran,
And were married that very day,
And went to dwell at the court of Queen Bess,
And were happy, the minstrels say.

T this time of the year many students all over the it orld
are taking one of the biggest steps of their lives, they
are graduating. Graduation! 'What a world of signifi
mance is in that one Word. It means a step into a bigger
ieater life, be it college or business. lt means the choosing
of '1 vocation. lt means that many years of preparatory Xt oil

have been finished and the student is ready to fight in the bat-
tles of life. But is the student ready? Has he taken advan-
tage of all the opportunities oifered him? Or has he idled
away his time and graduated "by the skin of his teeth. " XVl1at-
ever habits he has formed are almost certain to follow him
through life. The idler will be idleg the worker will work.
Xvllflt has the student learned in these long years at school?
Ile has learned about the unknowns in Algebrag about the
Uatalinian conspiracyg about Wilhelm Tellg about static elec-
tricity, about the Alpha rays from radiumg about Samuel John-
song about Burke's speechg about CuSO4, or about anything
written in the textbooks. But, is this all he has learned? If
so, he is not prepared to graduate g-to iight in the battles of
life. If he has learned to think and to think quicklyg to act
gustlyg to never give upg that the more a person does the more
he can dog and that no matter how much a person is doing, he
always has time to do something else that is worth whilcg he
has got the most out of his school life and is prepared to fight
iu the battles of life.
May we, the graduates from North, be of the latter kind!
May we be workers instead of idlers! May we go out into the
world and make a name for ourselves and uphold the honor
of Old North that has made her one of the best high schools
in the country.
HERE are, and probably always will be, two kinds of
graduates. The one will be the dissatisfied one who is
knocking the school and who can hardly wait until he
gets his diploma, to get away from the old 'idumpf' The other
one is contented a.nd thoughtful, and a tenderness steals over
his heart for the school where he spent four long years. The
first kind you will perhaps recognize as the kind who always
were in troubleg who never got a lesson and who started quar-
rels with the teachers. Vile are sorry that there are any of
these, sorry for them who have to look back on their high
school life as if it were a bad dream. On the other hand, we
are glad to say that there are more of the latter kind, the kind
who delight in thinking over the happy days spent in this great
school, the days of victory and defeat, of pleasures and of
hardships. They enjoy the friendship and the recommenda-
tion of their instructors which is of invaluable help, and leave
behind them in the school a memory which is a benediction.

IIE editor wishes to thank those who have helped to make
this yea1"s Polaris a sueeess. VVe are especially in-
debted to Miss Gale for her untiring devotion to the Art,
Dpartment, which has never needed support more than this
year. JohntMcGaw's name if not his person has been before
thc eyes of the sehool throughout the year. Besides being re-
sponsible for the eommereial drawings in the eommeneement
number, Fred Schwartz and Janet French have both contrib-
uted liberally in the way of covers and sketches. Janet has also
made many literary contributions. Lawrence Kellar and El-
lcry Erving deserve credit for mounting snapshots and other
work. Gabrielle Hoodlet should be thanked for her poetic
work which has appeared in almost every issue. Dwight Gard-
ner also has helped the editor in innumerable ways. Other
names worthy of mention are Dick Keyes, Howard McCormick
and Mildred Fisher.
Each year t.he contributions to the pages of Polaris repre-
sent very few of the student body. This ought not to be. VVe
have many excellent students here who could give us some-
thing well worth reading.
This year the English teachers have helped us much by
sending us some of their best class work. The editor wishes
to thank them and acknowledge the following from Miss M. O.
Scott is classes, ten articles, representing five studentsg from
Miss Skinner's, fourteen articles, representing nine stndentsg
from Miss Kiser's, twelve articles, representing twelve stu-

meetings, has rendered musical programs in which it attempted

By its excellent work during the past two years, the North
High band has now established itself as one of the perma-
nent organizations of the school. In former years the band was
just organized for a few football games. By the work of a
few boys of the class of '16 the band has reached a high stand-
ard. Mr. Swain has cheerfully borne the tinaneial burden of
the band. Mr. Everett has given its his support in every way
possible. The band has added new laurels to North in that it
is the best High School band in the state. It has played for all
school activities during the past year. It was especially popu-
lar at the football games, where it installed that "old time
North spirit" in many a worn-out athlete. It has played for
numerous outside engagements and its music has always met
with approval of those who heard it. The officers of the band
are Mr. Wright, band masterg Herbert Pepper, leader and busi-
ness managerg Homer Geiger, assistant business manager.
Only a few members graduate this year and it is hoped that
the band of '17 will do even greater things than the band of

At our last meeting we planned for a hike of the Girls'
Bible Class and Y. W. C. A. together. It was decided that we
would go to Indian Springs on Nlfednesday, May 31.

HE present junior class has certainly established a prece-
dent, it has failed to give a Junior-Senior. Just why
this is, history does not say-surely not because they do
not enjoy the company of the seniors, for they accepted the
seniors' invitation to the Senior-Junior, and apparently had a
great time. Juniors, if you continue to display the same
amount of Hpepn and school spirit as seniors that you have
shown as juniors, the class of '17 will be remarkable indeed.

Under the supervision of the Latin Department of North
High School seine dolls have been dressed, very beautifully
illustrating the fashions of two thousand years ago. These
dolls are the handiwork of four high school girls.
One of the dolls is a Roman soldier with all his appurte-
nances, made by Miss Flynn. Another is a civilian, and the
other two are Roman women.
' The dolls have been named in the following manner:
Silvius Aeneas, Horatio, Clarissiina, and Julia.
The Hgures are about twelve inches in height, and the
material used in this work is gaudy, producing a striking
The soldier, evidently an imperator, is a noble figure, with
his helmet, shield, and broad-sword. His mantle is of rich pur-
ple with a narrow border. Under this is the tunic, and upon
his feet are the sandals, bound around his ankles. This soldier
bears his credentials, which may be obtained upon inquiry.
The women are dressed in styles which are quite equal in
beauty to those of today. Green, blue, and pink are used in
the outer robes. The ladies are complete, showing head-dress,
fancy pins and ornaments, and sandals.

Anyone would be highly edified by an inspection of these

the dolls will be kept on continual display in the Latin Depart-
The baseball season ended with North in a triple tie for
first place. Commerce and Aquinas were the other teams in
the mix-up. Owing to numerous postponements, only two of
the teams in the league finished their schedules. lt was decided
at a meeting of the coaches, not to play off the remaining
games, and as a result there will be no championship. North
was up and fighting all the time and would have made a strong
bid for the "bacon" if the tie had been played off. As it is,
we will have to be content with a tie.
The senior play has finally been selected and is to be "The
Butterfiies," by Guy Carlton. lt will be given at the Southern

The Source of the Modern Sports
O DOUBT the majority of the people know that the sports
are very old, but l dare say that only a small portion
know that they are as old as llistory itself. These peo-
ple probably believe that the games of the ancients merely fur-
nished us with the suggestions and that the modern sports
are the result of radical changes, additions and subtractions
from those of former times. However, history proves that this
is not the case. lt is interesting to note how many sports tha.t
are indulged in today have suitered little or no change as they
eame down through the ages.
Those which have suffered the least change are the ones
which comprise tl1e soeealled "track" events. They are, no
doubt, the oldest that we have. The short runs, such as the
100, 200, 400, 500 and the 1000 yard sprints, which were very
mueh in favor among the Greeks and the Romans, were run
then praetieally the same as they are today. Even the posi-
tion of the runner before the start and the start itself have suf-
fered no appreciable change. However, the qualifications were
somewhat different then. The races were divided into classes
in which only men, boys or girls could compete, as the ease
NVe have seen too many pictures ol' the Greek Disc Thrower
to know that this sport is of recent origin. The only change
that has been made in this is that the disc is now made of wood
with a rim of brass or iron, while the original was only a. stone,
for which a chunk of iron was later substituted, this iinally
being supplanted by a bronze disc, very much similar in shape
to the one in use today. The throwing of the discus gave rise
to the putting of the shot and tl1e throwing of the hammer.
The only changes made in the high jump is that the
weights, which were used by tl1e ancients, have been barred.
The ancients used these weights to help them carry tl1e body
over the standard, which was made of marble or some other
heavy stone. The weights were also used in the broad jump.
While there was no pole vault in those times, this event was
probably suggested by the use of the weights. The fact that
they used something to help them carry their weight over a
standard would very naturally cause them to be anxious to
see how high they could throw their bodies when they had
something by which they could raise themselves.
..1.1, Q .,,.,.... .... .. .... .1 ..,. .. , , .
The javelin throw is another sport that has been changed
very little during its long existence.
Another sport that held the interest of the ancients was
wrestling. This sport, like our baseball, had many professional
players and teachers. There have been few changes in this
game, such as the barring of tripping and the discontinuation of
the practice of putting oil on the body of a participant to a
bout Aside from these modifications, this test of skill and
strength remains the same as it was then. A
Boxing, a sport closely allied to wrestling, is another one
which commanded great respect from the people of former
times. It is interesting to note what comprised the glove of
the ancient boxer. The style used most extensively was made
by binding two or three strips of hard, stiff leather across the
knuckles. The wrappings which held the strips in place were
extended to about the middle of the forearm, where there was
a roll of tleece, with which the fighter could ward 0E blows
without injury to the body. The fact that such weapons were
used caused the boxers to become very skilful in their work.
A blow from one of these weapons would mean much more
than a blow from one of the modern five-ounce, hair-padded
gloves. This art, as it is called by some people, has lost none
of the popularity it received in the days of the mighty Eryx
and Hercules. , 1
Rowing, as it is conducted today, is the result of the old
galley race. The work was done at that time by slaves, there
being a certain number to a tier. The number of tiers ranged
from one to 40, which created the need for a boat very much
larger and heavier than the "shell" of today. The one to re-
ceive the honor in such a race was the captain, in most cases
the owner, while the Whole crew shares the praises today.
In looking over some of these ancient sports and seeing
the small number of changes that had to be made to make them
applicable to us, we can readily see the good sportsmanship
which was demanded of the pagan athlete together with, with
a very few exceptions, his love for sports which were con-
structive and not destructive.

A Review of the Past Season
Even though North failed to win the football champion-
ship of Columbus the past season, nevertheless, our season was
considered a success. This statement is based on the fact that
any season is considered successful if our old rival, East High,
is defeated even if the majority of the other games played are
At the opening of the season the outlook was encouraging,
and it seemed as though we were going to breeze through the
season without a defeat. The material which presented itself
to Mr. Prugh was exceptionally good and was rapidly whipped
into good form. As is well known we won our first five games
by big scores. Then came the 'West game, which we lost prin-
cipally because of over-confidence, and we did not fully recover
from this blow until we had again been defeated, this time by
Scott High of Toledo.
lt was a weekslater when we staged a great come-back
at Fostoria, holding the state champions to a scoreless tie. lt
is to be regretted that this game was not played in Columbus,
so that the North supporters could have witnessed the contest.
I do not hesitate to say that this was the best game we played
during the entire season. A '
From that point until the end of the season we playedftrue
to form. It will be recalled how we came upfrom behind and
defeated Springiield at North field, and how, a week later,
we defeated East so decisively that it gave nobody a chance
to say it was a "tlukey" victory. . P 5.
In closing this brief review of the past Season, I'w,ill'talie
this opportunity as a most favorable one for thanking the fac-
ulty, the student body and the cheer-leaders, in behalf of the
team, the coaches, and myself, for hearty co-operation and
support. t '

BASKETBALL REVIEW ,
IIE North basketball team had a hoodoo over them the
past season which they could not overcome. The game
' that our boys played in the big one 's showed that North
had the stuff but could not get away with it. North lost most
of their games by one or two points. The refereels whistle an-
nounced twice as many fouls on us, which always gave our
opponents the victory. With such men as B. Churches, our
next year ls basketball captain, Smith, the good-looking guardg
Foglc, our lanky centerg "Mike" Pepe, the short forward, and
Dudley, who was one of the best players in the cityg MacIn-
tyre, the tall helpful man, could we not have expected better
One alibi-one that we can make with truth-is that our
team was crippled most of the year. Our first blow came when
Fogle, the center, became 'ill and had to rest, then "Mike"
Pepe ran a nail in his foot, then Krieger, Bucher and Leach
withdrew from the team.
NVell, Churches, next year, try and see if North cannot get
that old flag in her possession and rely on me for all that I can
do to be of service toward bringing home the bacon,

REVIEW OF BASEBALL SEASON
By Capt. Harm.
Prospects looked unsually good for North this year in
baseball with four letter men back and many new men showing
promising ability. The ineligibility of Rueppel and Francis at
the start of the season and several other -minor accidents since
then have handicapped the team a little, but they have done
finely in spite of this and are now second in the league. They
have several hard games yet at the time of this writing, but
they are confident that they will bring the championship of
the city to the school where it belongs.

REVIEW OF TRACK SEASON
At the beginning of the track season of 1916, the outlook
here at North was anything but bright. Almost the entire
team of last year had graduated and a new one had to be built
up. But under the skilful guidance of Coach Swain a well-
balanced team was rounded out of the material at hand. Our
team, although classed as stiff competition, was not expected to
take the city meet, especially after our defeat at the hands of
Clinton. But on the day of the city meet, the few loyal North
rooters who occupied the stands were treated to an agreeable
surprise. For they saw their team race to victory, upsetting
the dope bucket, quite after the fashion of North High teams.
While we do not expect to repeat this victory at the High
School meet carried on with the Big Six, yet we do expect a
fair showing. In speaking of the future we might say that al-
though most of this year 's team graduate, yet the outlook is
as bright as this year is Was.
Every man on the team performed his work faithfully and
did his best. Too much cannot be said for the cheerful spirit
and optimistic view of our coach, II. P. Swain. .
On Friday, May 12, five other high school teams saw North
High 's well-balanced team take the city track meet by a, mar-
gin of 12LQ points over any of her opponents. Public opinion
was that Clinton was going to take home the Hbaconf' be-
cause she gave some North men a Hlittle run" in a 'tfiukeyu
meet a little before. But that day North showed East, South,
Aquinas, Commerce and Clinton some Stine points" in the
track game. Captain Twitchell kicked in with 15 points for
North and was the "idol of the day." All the North rooters
were looking for our old "standby,,' Camden Clark, to be the
big point "getter," but very unfortunately the night before in
practice he broke three of his toes.

Vlfhile his conquerer knows
he must play the part
Of a cheat and a living lie.
The prize seems fair when
the fight is on,
But save it is truly won
You will hate the thing when
the crowds are gone,
For it stands a false deed
And it's better you should
never reach your goal
Than ever success to buy
At the price of knowing
down in your soul
That your glory is all a lie.

"Get the Wagon, Quick!"
R. C. M. '
I had a dream, a wondrous dream. I dreamed I strolled
through marble pillared halls' and as I strolled there reached
my ears gay laughter, wafted on perfumed breezes-breezes
coming from the palm leaves waved gently to and fro by the
twinkling, tinkling water in the fountain by the oflice. Ah,
the office! that paradise where Wrong was righted and recorded
in the Morocco ledger upon the marble pulpit in the center of
the cushioned divans where wronged youths lounged and chat-
ted, each awaiting his turn to see their bigger brother, the prin-
cipal. Then I heard some music and as I followed its sweet
strain I came upon the study room, from whence came this 111el-
ody, for 'tis a well proven fact, you know, that boys and girls do
study better when there is music in the air. In this study room
the unsophisticated students all had Morris chairs to rest their
weary bones as they worked their minds. As I turned to saun-
ter up to 36 I heard the harmonious snore of the presiding
teacher. Oh! that peaceful sound, it followed me all the way
to 36, which was a second Eden Ca place where fruit did hang
in assorted clusters and the steaks came already fried well
done, parboiled or rarel only there, in 36, 'twas knowledge
which hung thus around. I then heard sweet nature calling and
I went to get my repast in a rose-tinted marble dining hall,
where they served me with ambrosia and with nectar. As I
journeyed homeward in my aeromobile, model 1970, I thought
how hard it would have been to have gone to North back in
'16, for this is North I've raved about and, curses, I then awoke.

If you want to hear and see strange things, keep your eyes
on Hamilton. A very remarkable occurrence took place on the
Main street car some time ago. '4Hamn1y" thought he would
flirt a little, and so he winked at a pretty girl sitting just oppo-
site him in the car. The young lady, however, did not recog-
11ize his rudeness, as she got oif the car at the blind asylum.
LOST-A small child about four years old. Is supposed to
have strayed toward High School. Vilas about three feet high

Answers to Some Letters Received This Year
Mildred Hastings-No, I do 11ot think it proper for a young
lady to accept jewelry from a young man unless she is engaged
to him. Your bracelet is beautiful, I know, dear, but can't
you take it OH for just a 111onth or so? The young man will
surely declare himself soon.
Frederick Croxton-l am sorry that l do I1Ot know of any-
thing to keep you from being so popular. It is annoying, I
know, but we all have our troubles and you must bear these
burdens asf bravely as you can. Remember "Sunny Jim" is
o11r friend. '
Louis Dudley-Yes, hydrogen peroxide is the most fre-
quently used. Be sure to dilute a little, for too strong H11 appli-
cation will injure the scalp. ,X
f'Bun" Purcell-You ask 1ne how you can appear sporty
on a small income. NVell, I tl1ink from what you write that you
are putting up a, pretty good blui.
Harold Wiper-It is unfortunate that otl1ers do not appre-
ciate the good looks and heavenly dancing you speak of, but
do not allow this to depress you any. lt you continue to talk
about yourself you will gain notoriety if nothing else.
Doris Wilson-You are right, it does not pay a young
woman to study too hard. Save your energy for social tri-
Sam Baird-You must not mind if some people ridicule
you because of the habit you formed in your childhood. Milk
is a great nerve strengthener and tissue builder a11d three
times a day is not too often for it to be drunk.
Paul Burlingame-Cll Dancing is a very pleasant pastime.
C2l From the records on hand, you are not related to Freder-
ick the Great.
Albert Sutphen-NVe have not had time to have you give
us a personal tryout of yo11r voice, and so cannot state from our
own hearing what you should do. Still, if what we hear from
those who have heard your voice is true. we would suggest that
you confine your attentions to your studies and let some of tl1e
other fellows take the blame.
Two Kinds of Fits
Charlie Clark Cin the "borrowed" coatl-Do you tl1ink
I've got a lit?
"Bob" Dixon--I don't know but l'd have one if I had a
coat like that.
I - Our Vegetarian Section
Beets.-Beets, especially "dead beats," are a very com-
mon variety, and should be Hplautedn at the earliest oppor-
Onions.-Onions are a peculiarly treacherous vegetable and
should not be eaten except when one is to be in seclusion for a
great time. It has been reported that many an engagement
has been broken off and many a social rupture committed on
account of this deadly weed and all of our readers should heed
this little warning.
Garlic.-Garlic is very funny stuff and though rather
rarely used by Americans, is used quite largely by Europeans,
especially Italians and Greeks to give a true native atmosphere
to their persons, restaurants and places of amusement.

I Remember the Time-
Your uncle looked like an aunt Canti when you were on
the top floor of the Wloolworth building in New York and
looked down on him in the street below?
You said your brother, who once was a terrible drinker,
was settled down and living in a quiet suburb of New York.
Then your inquisitive friend went farther and asked you where
and you had to tell him in YVoodlawn cemetery?
Also when your friend Brown died Smith said he was be-
loved by all, honored, and a man of no faults, and you asked
him if he knew Brown that well, and he retorted no, that he
got that from his tombstone.

To charge the fearful foe.

With bayonet forever set,
And painted barrel, too.

As e'er commission bore,
And brightly shone his new tin sword 5

With fearless hearts, though tired limbs
'We fought the mimie fray.
Till the supper bell, from out the dell,

, GOLDEN HAIR
Hair of old sun-burnished gold,
Such a web as might enfold
Fairy children, that thc eold
Should not steal from without-
Soft it is as maiden fern
Light as elfin feet that spurn
Heather as they dance and turn
Round and round aboutg
In short, she had such lovely hair
That I married charming Claire.
Golden hair in soup and fish,
Golden hair in every dish,
Golden hair-it makes me wish
That l'd been more discreet,
Fairy hair, light as a beam
Shining on a mountain stream-
Oh, would dinner did not teeiu
lVith golden hair, and sweet!
For hair of gold is good to see,
Oh, yes, but not to eat.

The light of endless unity.
By thee the sons of men are
Forever, holy Trinity.
Now fades the crimson from
The purple cloud is cold
The Winds are hushed the

For swiftly rides the coin-
Now sinks the golden sun to
Thou light at endless unity
Bear thou our prayer for
Unto the blessed Trinity.

lValter Hamilton Wanted,
with a great Want, to go
down street one day recent-
ly, but he Was due in phys-
ical laboratory that sixth
period. How to get out and
carry it off successfully was
his problem. He got Clara
Xllalt to go up to Mr. Al-
bright and report that Wal-
ter had a bad toothache.
Presently George Brobeck
came up and with great sym-
pathy reported that Walter
was suffering from a bad at-
tack of stomach ache. Soon
Vlfalter came in and account-
ed for his depressed looks by
saying that he had terrihc
headache. This was too
much for Mr. A., Who Very
promptly Wrote an excuse
for Walter to meet these sev-
eral serious ailments.
