E feel highly honored to chronicle the history of so distinguished a class as this one, of 1918, indeed, have the halls of North ever before been traversed by such a progressive and altogether up-to-date body? P September of 1914 was a fateful time for North, for then it was that the advance guard of the class made its appearance. John Horst, "Buzz" Rundio and Katharine Clark were among the standard bearers and such a peppery lot of freshies was never before seen! Sleepy old North was made to "sit up and take notice" awhile, when the lively youngsters made things hum. At the Senior-Junior of that year, our "freshies" Cfor in those good old days North boasted a class of the emerald childrenj, furnished amusement for the company in the form of a boxing match between the featherweight champions, john Horst and "Buzz" Rundiof' We forget the outcome, but it is to be sup- posed that the bout was closely contested and interesting, in keeping with the reputation of the class for pep. The next year, 1915-16, heralded the approach of the regiments from the junior Highs, and many shining lights were added to our number. Then it was that "Micky" McGuire, Annanette Blue and Donald Ross appeared on the scene, while johnny Hudson showed up to be a comfort to the teachers in their trials and tribulations. This year also, members of the class began to show their ability. Being now dignified Sophomores, we succeeded in electing some of our number to the Polaris Staff, while our classmate, B. Churches, was astounding all with his athletic prowess on the Held. In our junior year, from '16 to '17, we organized formally, electing officers to oversee the navigation of the class ship. We juniors proved ourselves indispensable to the school and its numerous organizations. Some of us starred in the drama, Cvia Thespiansj, some engaged in scientific research with Philo- mathean, while still others discussed politics and harrangued enthusiastic audiences in Watauga Assembly-all of which shows the versatility of the members of our organization. We astonished the school, especially the Seniors, by giving a fine junior-Senior, when nearly everyone had given up hope-which last shows our ability to rise to the occasion and should be added to the already long list of the virtues of this class. This year also, a Junior, the afore-mentioned redoutable B. Churches, had the honor of captaining North's football team, 54 THE POLARIS and the juniors on the basketball and baseball teams made it possible for North tocarry off the city championship in these sports. This, our Senior year, has been a prosperous one. Our class has kept up its reputation for pep, and our Senior-Junior will long be remembered. This year's Co-ed, while not strictly a Senior event, achieved a great deal of its success through the efforts of Seniors, you all, Cthat is, the girlsl, Will agree. We have stated before that this class is a progressive organiza- tion, and indeed, what could be more so than the fact that we have a lady editor-in-chief? Then, too, our vice-president, a young lady, has been doing a "rnan's job" this year, for our president left us in February. Altogether, this class must surely gain recognition for being an unusual body of persons, and we all cannot help feeling that North will loose a lot when she looses the Seniors of 1918. MARION MORREY, '18. SLEEP Sleep--a wondrous thing, A god that from his realm doth bring Temporary death to tired souls, A spirit, reaching far and wide, Spreading dreams on the mountain side, And by the shore where the ocean rolls. It is a tonic, nature's best, That gives to the body strength and rest, And blissful and sweet forgetfulness. It is a food, the most nourishing kind, That gives strength to the heart and power to the mind, And it is a period of happiness. , Sleep, a relief from trouble and toil, -From the cares of life and the world's turmoil, And a calm and quiet breath, Its a shrouding mist both wide and deep That seems sweet to me, and if death be sleep Then I will welcome death. B. F. '19. THE POLARIS 55 CLASS PROPHECY '-'- T rains all the time," complained Mary Stone. "There's nothing to do here. " "Let's go to the attic and look at old photographs and letters," suggested her fifteen-year-old brother. These two were the grandchildren of Julius Stone, jr., of the class of 1918, of North High School. ' In the attic, a few minutes later they were busily rummaging through the trunks, when Fred chuckled, " Oh, look here, what a funny girl I'Ve found!" - "See the funny bumps on her ears, " giggled Mary, "my, but she looks old-fashioned. " "It's signed, 'yours truly, Virginia Wallin' " said Fred. "Must have been some old friend of gramp's. She certainly is pretty." "Why, here's a bunch of old Polaris', the famous school paper of today. And here's a typewritten pamphlet that smells of cigarettes. Let's read it!" Settling on an old dusty sofa in a corner, they opened to the first page of, " The History of the Class of 1918," compiled by Stone. A letter, yellowed with age, addressed to his grandfather, fell to the floor. Stooping to recover it, Fred read the following: . June 29, 1919. DEAR SIR z-We are pleased to inform you that at the reunion of the class of 1918 you were elected historian. We realize that this will be a difficult and lengthy task, but we hope that as a token of your regard for your Alma Mater you will attempt it. Believing that this will be not merely a task, but a pleasure as well, I am, yours truly, MILDRED CLINE, Class Secretary. July 2, 1919.-I received notice today of my election as historian of the class of 1918 and after due consideration of the matter, have decided to accept the same. I believe the best way to go about this weighty task is to make entries concerning the members of said class as I chance to hear from them, either directly or indirectly. J.. F. S. Columbus, April 8, 1927.-Helen Ashley came into my office today for a recommendation to my old friend Raymond Guthrie, who is principal of the Dublin schools. She is seeking a position as kindergarten teacher there. You know she always was fond of kids. I wrote her a fine recommendation and I hope she will get the job. Then we sat and talked for a while about mutual friends. She had just seen Beatty, who had only that day returned from Washington. He had gone to pay his respects to our Congressman Ross, Qby the Way, Ross has the distinction of being the youngest 56 THE POLARIS man in the Housej, and to try to secure the enactment of the bill appropriating money for the beautification of the Scioto river front and vicinity. He said while there he attended a reception in honor of "Mick" McGuire and Mont. Campbell, Secretaries of VVar and Army, respectively, who were appointed to these positions because of their noble deeds when they led the party of U. S. troops who scaled the walls of Berlin, and got the first shot at the Kaiser Cthe last, too, that he ever feltl. Columbus, March 19, 1930.-Paul Burlingame is going to be married tomorrow! Sad to relate, the bride is not a North girl, but that can not be helped. There are to be quite a few North grads there, so I can get a line on a number of them. Columbus, March 29, 1930.-For the first time recently I have time to record a few facts. Their best man was Dean Trott, who is now a famous professional football player. Reed Terrill, also of our class, is the most noted quarterback in the country, far excelling East's "Chick," and Don Park is the manager of the team. The Rev. 'K Bee " Churches was the officiating clergyman, and he tied them well, you may be sure. Helen Vail, the wife of a veterinary doctor in the service of the city, was matron of honor. Ellen Bowen and Katherine Ferris, manu- facturers of f'Ye Olde Columbus Chewing Gum," were bride's maids. Mayme Kerns, a famous concert artist, played the wedding march, and Homer Ballard, well known to North High people for his exceptionally fine rendering of " Kitty Bell," sang for them. He is now sheriff of Franklin County. You see the bride is quite well acquainted with Paul's old North chums. Some of their ushers were of our class. Among them were Charles Davis, head of a furniture store in Denver, Bob Runyan, manager of the Penny Arcade at Olentangy Park, and Fred Downs, manager of the Majestic Theater. Bixby and Frankenburg printed the invitations and announcements. So, all round, it was rather a North Hi wedding. Chicago, June 17, 1933.-As historian, I came here to attend the fifteenth alumni luncheon of the class of 1918 of North High, held by the North graduates now in Chicago. The luncheon is to be the day after tomorrow, but as you see, I came a little early and am staying with john Boardman, who is a distinguished con- sulting engineer with headquarters here. We went to the " Follies" last night and saw Marion Morrey and john Hudson, dancers, in a new fantasy, "The North High High-Step," dedicated to their Alma Mater. Elena Calvo and Helen Garrett, too, had a number. john Tompson has succeeded ZiegHeld as manager of the Follies. Being a trifle worn out, I decided today to seek a good phy- sician-and whom do you think I found? I'll give you three guesses. No! All Wrong! Johnnie Horst, world-wide diagnosti- cian. His right hand assistant is Katherine Clark. She is looking THE POLARIS 57 ine and informed me that .Freda Schulz Went to France as a Red Cross nurse and is now-well I've forgotten the name. Never could remember French. At dinner tonight we had the best bread I've eaten since thc war, and would you believe it? I found it was Brenneman's bread! Yes, Russ is at the good work of preparing the staff of life, and his chief delivery boy is Sam Baird. Never thought Sam had such high aspirations, did you? Chicago, june 20, 1933.-Well, the luncheon was yesterday and we certainly had a full day. There was a fine treat in store for us. Dorothea White, Ruth Greene, Elizabeth Brown, Annanette Blue and Helen Black, accompanied by Milia Dyer, rendered a highly colored version of "Nelly Gray. " You notice I have used the maiden names of these girls Calthough they are all marriedj because it was by these familiar cognomens that we knew them best. The toastmaster, Bob Nauts, in partnership with Frank Harper, has become a competitor of Spaulding in the manufacture of athletic goods. Helen Elliot gave a short talk on "The Appalling Lack of Industry in the American School Children of this Generationf' Helen is now the governess of Queen Liliuakalani's grandchildren, and under her guidance they are becoming quite civilized. Frank Hennacy, of the United States secret service department, who by his ability to smell out illicit stills, breweries and saloons, has done much to enforce nation-wide prohibition laws, gave an interesting talk on "The Value of a Good Nose." julia Newkirk spoke on, "The Theory of Domestic Economy." She was selling her cook books, and many of those present kindly gave orders for her newly revised book, just published, a number of copies of which she always has with her, and she is at any time ready to talk of its good points. Strange to say, in spite of her many suitors, she remains Miss. john Breeze, noted scientist, gave "Reminiscences of My Trip to Mars." The program closed by those present joining in the one lasting popular song of the war, " We're Glad You All Came Back to Us," words by Durava Wiseman and music by Harold Montag, written in honor of the North boys of '18, who went to the great war. At the luncheon we noticed what a particularly striking costume Mary Elberfeld Smith, a suffragette speaker, was wearing. We heard her tell Marjorie Minnich and Ruth Skirnming, in answer to their questions how she retained her youth so well, that it was all due to her Fifth Avenue modiste, Florence Griffith, her manicurist Helen Mull, and her hairdresser, Betty Guerin. She advised them either to go to those whom she had found so satis- factory, or if that were not convenient, to try " Long's and Tyler's Beauty Lotion." Yes, our old friends Tom Long and Gerald Tyler. We received greetings from Florence Woodrow and Lucile Siebert, who are professors' wives at the University of 58 THE POLARIS California. The profs. were lucky guys, don't you think? The police stationed around the hotel are Bob. Hathaway, Harold Hall and Tod Dixon. There was some question about taking Dixon, but the three were weighed together, and an average taken, so he landed the job. Well, I guess these are about all the alumni who made themselves in evidence at Chicago. Columbus, jan. 24, 1935.-I went down to the opening of the new North High school today. Yes, really, a new building and they were holding a reception. Robert Lewis was architect for the building, Nihl Parker contractor and Louise Arnett decorator. We understand now why we could not have a new school in the old days-there was no one capable enough to undertake the job and do it well, until our class came along. Clare Schooler has charge of the gym work for the girls now, since Miss Quillin is married. There is also a boys' gym under the direction of Donald Wiper. Harold Ackerman has charge of the physics depart- ment, and has completely overturned the scientific world. In spite of the fact that the old scientists thought the only perpetual motion machine was a woman's tongue, he has discovered a mechanical device which has perpetual motion. Althea Adams now has Miss Needles place and is as well beloved by her pupils as was Miss Needles in our days. Dorothy Boyd and Betty Lane are running the lunch room and the kids certainly are getting good eats! Donald Chapman, a famous lecturer, also of our class, gave an appropriate talk. Music was furnished by Murdock's Orchestra, some members of which-whom we know- are, Mort Parker, Melville Sayre and Henry Abbott. At the reception we met Margaret Stover, now the wife of a foreign missionary, who informed us that Vincent Napoli is a missionary in China, and also mentioned the Varley girls, now successful housekeepers in spite of the fact that they are prominent club women in Baltimore. As I was leaving the building and going to my machine presented me by Charles Ford Cyes, it is really a machinel, I noticed across the street Paul Harris' "Book and Paper Shop." Paul is supplying the school children of today even better than he did us. Anne Farber is buyer and chief clerk. Anne told us that Eldred Ruffner, Helen Poulton and Mabel Barr have become very famous in the movies, and said that she saw jane Hathaway, Mildred Eade, Evan, Moul, Lowell Denman and Kennard Erk last week in a patriotic review at Keith's. ,,Columbus, Sept. 14, 1939.-Was reading Judge this morning and that reminded me that I should mention in this chronicle that Norwood Blake is editor of that magazine and is running many clever cartoons by "Pat" Hannon. . ,l.p Columbus, June 27, 1940.-Saw in this morning's paper that Helen Tannehill has been awarded the world's championship in tennis for middle-aged women. She was barely old 'enough to THE POLARIS 59 compete, but she managed to get in. Saw also that Norma Schmidt has had a wonderful statue in the Louvre in Paris. Ruth Marshall posed for her, so no wonder it's good. Columbus, December l2, 1940.-Helen Kutschbach has been studying music in Europe and has just returned. She will appear Christmas day in a concert, the proceeds of which are to go to the West Side Settlement, of which Edith Williams is matron. Columbus, jan. 10, 1941.-By the way, Jack Lawyer, following the profession indicated by his name, is handling the interests of Helen Means in the big damage suit being tried now in the Federal Court under United States Supreme Judge, James Fogle. It happened that William Walton, the defendant ran into and smashed her fine new Charlton and McClure airplane, through careless driving. The plane was one of the best to be had, being manufactured at the plant of Miriam and Erdine. It just happened that she was unfortunate in not having any of Harold Edward's insurance. Columbus, March 25, 1941.-We were in Kampman's the other day for a costume to wear to a fancy dress ball to be given by Harriet Galbraith, the wife of a prominent war hero. The clerk who waited on us was none other than Gladys McKimmy, who is said to be an expert in her line. From Kampman's I went across to the Weisenberger Building to "The Book Shop" owned by Louise Marshall's husband. On a magazine cover a startlingly beautiful face greeted me. Yes, just as I had thought, it was Lucille Jenkins! On the shelves was a neat little booklet written by Dorothy Walters on Gertrude Weagley's experiences as a teacher in a mission school in Africa. We understand that Gertrude was too bashful to write it herself. The floorwalker, Louise Shockey, called our attention to the book of "Revised Rules for Athletic Sports, 'l by Esther Kobmang also to a pamphlet on "Scientific Agricultural Experiments," by Evart Henderson and Paul Dennis. Seems queer, doesn't it, that we either knew nothing of, or never appreciated their genius in school? Columbus, March 26, 1941.-Ecca Gordon has become a well- known and appreciated social settlement worker. Among others of her stories she tells this one of her experiences. A little girl who lived in the slums was invited to a party given by a wealthy woman, Helen Weinman, for the poor kiddies. The child was talking to Helen and asked these questions :-"Does your husband Work? How much does he make? Is he good to you? Does he ever beat you? Does he drink?" 'Helen answered the first questions half-satisfactorily in a dazed manner, but at the last one she stopped. "Why, little girl, don't you know it is very rude to ask such questions? " " No, mother told me to behave like a lady, and that is the way they always talk when they come to our house," answered the youngster. E P x 60 THE POLARIS Columbus, March 27, 1941.-At Harriet's ball last night I saw Howard Growden, a society man and Julian Davidson, who is popular with the ladies because of his bachelorhood. Ruth Cox, Bernice Gearheart, Stanford Evans, Charles Baker, Alma Dickey, Helen Hazleton, Mildred Horton, Margaret Kimball and Phoebe Mitchel were there costumed in their cleverest. Harold Creamer was there dressed like a millionaire and I guess that the interest he gets from his bonds and Thrift Stamps really is no small amount. Columbus, june 3, 1942.-Today we received a copy of Maude Dickinson's and Dean Judd's translation of Virgil. As far as I can remember that classic, it is very good. Cleveland, April 30, 1943.-We decided to be extravagant and stop at the newest and best hotel in the city of Cleveland. It is the Kintner and Bennett Hotel, owned and operated by Chester K. and Don B. Mighty ine place. Columbus, june 15, 1943.-I have here recorded everything that I know, or have been able to discover concerning the members of our class Qexcept my own bad habitsj, so the record of 1918 must here close as far as I, as historian, am concerned.

X 9 N W -IXIARGARET WALKER AND MARTHA CRUM, Sibyls. 1 4.1 . 1 it I ,V X, S 'A an THE POLARIS 61 THE STORY OF RENE ENB was a Belgian peasant lad, a stolid youth of thirteen. ,He lived in a small village near the Belgian frontier. The peasants looked upon Rene as a stupid child, because of the unsuccessful efforts of the Abbe to teach him the rudi- ments of arithmetic and French. Perhaps his personal appearance had a great deal to do with the people's opinion of him. His blue eyes shown none too brightly and his square forehead did not give an appearance of intelligence. Furthermore, the peasantfs clothing which he wore was coarse and not as clean as it might have been. At the beginning of the great war the Germans had come through the village in their great effort to reach Paris. Many of the peasants fied, many were ruthlessly slaughtered, but Rene and his .family were not included in either class. The explanation lay in the fact that Rene's father, who was the miller in the little village, had courage to meet the invader and also the Germans needed some one to grind their grain. So the miller and his son were allowed to remain. It was during the German advance that an incident occurred that imprinted itself on Rene's memory. The German soldiers were sacking the village. The few civilians who were left had taken refuge in the cellar. There they were huddled together in terror. Rene crept steathily away from the others and mounted the steps to the kitchen of the cottage. There timidly stealing to the Window, he looked out on the narrow street with its grass- bordered canal. Two or three young German officers were standing in the sunshine. From a distance came the shouts of other Germans, reveling in their spoils. On the edge of the canal lay the body of a Belgian. In accord with the general spirit of revelry, one of the German officers placed his foot on the body of the Belgian and struck an attitude. He also shouted a sentence in German which was greeted by much merriment from his companions. It was then that Rene had occasion to notice the shoes of the German soldier. . The occupancy of the Belgian village did not last long. In ,a few months the little town was free from the invaders. The few peasants who were left settled down to their gardening and there was peace again among the ruins and the incessant thunder of the big guns. And then it was that the little Belgian soldiers came through the village and took up their position a short distance away. Then the hammering of the guns came nearer and reminders of war came in the form of lorries, munition trucks and ambulances, which plowed their way through the village street. One day Rene, seeking a respite from weeding the small garden plot, wandered into the village crossroads, where motor- , 4 62 THE POLARIS trucks and soldiers were gathered, waiting for the command to move on. Despite his stupid appearance, Rene was a good observer and what he saw made an impression which remained with him. As he scanned the group at the cross-roads in his slow way, a man in the dress of a peasant attracted his attention. Peasants in a small village know each other and this man's face was unfamiliar. Although Rene took an interest in this man, the boy had no suspicion and regarded him merely as a peasant from a neighboring village. The man stood at one side of the road, smoking a cigarette, and he appeared to be speculating. At length he approached a group of soldiers and entered into con- versation with them. Rene was at some distance from the group and consequently did not hear the conversation, but never- theless the man interested him and he continued to watch him. Soon the man struck off across the fields with an awkward gait. It was then that Rene caught sight of his shoes. He had reason to remember those shoes. They were those of the German soldier. Rene decided to follow him. The man went in a round- about way to a small abandoned house on the outskirts of the village. It was the same night that one of the villagers caught sight of rays of light which fiitted across the fields at regular intervals. The next ,day it was the theme of the village gossip. Rene's suspicions were aroused. Although the man with the German shoes did not appear again, Rebe determined to investigate. He did not let any one know his plan, not even the Abbe, the confidant of the peasants. At night Rene crept across the fields to the abandoned house. There in a beet field, sadly in need of cultivation, he waited. The house had been shelled, the upper fioor was gone and part of the wall had been torn away. All was quiet for what seemed hours to Rene, stretched at full length among the weeds. At length a stealthy figure, which Rene instantly recognized by the strangely awkward gait, made its way toward the house. A few minutes later a light fiashed across the lield in front of the house. It was followed at regular intervals by another, and another. Rene counted seven. Then the light changed to red. There were twenty red lights. Rene was satisfied. l A That night he went to the Abbe's house and told a very strange story, much to the surprise of that dignified gentleman. On the following night a select body accompanied by the Abbe, crept out to the abandoned house and when they returned another was added to their number. Furthermore, at sunrise a man,was shot on the charge of being a spy. . , Rene has become the hero of the village and is no .longer regarded as stupid and dull. He is known as,"little captainffgby the Belgian soldiers who come through the village and his greatest ambition is to become an officer in the Belgian army. 2 -,.

At that time the United States were producing but 33,000,000 worth, out of the necessary 315,000,000 worth, or one-fifth of the whole amount consumed in a year. Besides the textile industries, the paper industry, the feather and leather trades and other minor industlies were threatened with disaster unless some means were produced to furnish them with the needed coloring materials. Accordingly, on January 26, 1915, the United States Senate directed the Secretary of Commerce to report fully the facts relating to the supply of dyestuifs for American textile and other industries, as well as the sources of such supply, the extent and nature of the supply, and similar information. The duty of gath- ering this information Was assigned to the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce, and Dr. Thomas H. Norton, the expert of the Bureau, prepared a preliminary report on "DyestuHs for American Textile and Other Industries, " which was issued March 26, 1915. This pamphlet was useful as a source of knowledge to those who were in the dye business then, and to those who were considering starting in the manufacture. In the early days of 1915, there were four concerns manu- facturing dyes, having an annual output of 33,000,000 worth. Each of these plants specialized in the products from some par- ticular trade, as woolen goods, cotton, paper, etc. The problem was then how to increase the production of dyes and to make the industry permanent in the United States. Soon many of the coke ovens equipped their factories with appliances for the production of coal-tar bases, from which the dyestuifs were made. The most diHicult part of the problem was the manufacture of the inter- mediate compounds from which the finished dyes are produced. Of these, aniline oil is the most important and by May, 1915, it was reported that the supply of this was sufficient to meet the demands of the dyestuffs manufacturers in the United States. More plants for manufacturing dyes were started, such as the Standard Oil Company of New York, and the Du Pont Company, of Delaware. New and improved processes and new dyes were reported during the year C 19151. A report issued by the Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce at the close of the year showed the 1915 production of American coal-tar dyestuifs to be at a rate of nine thousand short tons a year, whereas in 1913 the rate was three thousand tons. In 1913 all the intermediates came from abroad. In 1915 they were produced in our own country. By May, 1916, the American chemists and manufacturers had progressed so well that in that month colors to the extent of ' THE POLARIS 65 3594000 were sent out of this country. This gives a general idea of the wonderful headway made in that line. Today the United States is independent, chemically, of the world. Now not only enough dyestuffs are manufactured in this country to satisfy out own consumers, but also the products of the American laboratories are now being sent to other countries by the ton, the exports of dyes and dyestuffs for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1917, having been over 3B11,700,000. Instead of importing as was done in the year before the war, fifteen and a half million pounds of blacks, thirteen and a half million pounds of blues, four million pounds of reds, and more than three million pounds of yellow dyes, we are now manufacturing in this country all of those dyes and more too. In this way all the money that was spent for these dyes outside of the country is now being spent in this country. At the present time there are one hundred and seventeen concerns, capitalized at more than 3200,000,000, that are making dyes which are as good and fast as those which Germany ever produced. About twenty-Hve thousand chemists are working to perfect all of the processes by which dyes may be extracted for the benefit of the country. It took the efhcient 'German chemists forty years to produce fifteen hundred different colors and shades, the results of endless experiments and years of experience. It has taken the American chemists two years to -develop three hundred of the main colors and shades, from which the different variations will be made after more experimenting. They have made blues, greens, reds, yellows, saffrons, violets, purples, browns, etc., and many of their variations. As one color and its shades were perfected the chemists took up another color and its shades, adding constantly to the list of fast and brilliant -colorings which were necessary for American industries of all kinds. Colors suitable for leather, textiles, straw, paper, ink, stains, pigments, varnishes, feathers, furs and many other purposes are now regularly obtainable from domestic sources. In regard to the intermediates which are rather difiicult to secure, the munition plants have the equipment adapted for making them. After the war, in addition to all the intermediates which are being manufactured by the regular factories, there will be the out- put of the munition plants which decide to go into the business -of making them, after having ceased 'making explosives. The process of making many kinds of dyes, such as basic, sulphur and mineral dyes is known. Vegetable dyes are also being used. However, the coal-tar products will probably continue to take the prominent part, on account of their abundance and quality. All of this indicates that the Americans are able to cope with the German scientists in the dye manufacture. JACK LAWYER, '18, :Zi L if Y QM- Eb f L L fm f N,X .

The provisions were being carried aboard and the command was about to be given to the waiting soldiers to march onto the ship, which was to carry them into dangerous waters to the duty which lay before them. A motor car came swiftly up the little street and stopped near the soldiers and a tall, sturdy boy, receiving permission from his captain, ran to the machine to give a last farewell to his family. The big Airdale in the front seat greeted him joyously and leaped from the machine to give vent to further demonstrations. " Dexter, dear, " said the young lieutenant's brave, little mother, 'fI don't know what we will do with Patsy, he has been whining around for you since you have been gone. None of us can take your place in his affections. " "Poor old Pat," said Dexter, as he looked into the loving, pleading eyes of his dog. " How I wish I could take you with me, old pard. There's the bugle!" he cried, dashing away the tears that would come. "A kiss, mother, good-bye' little sisg write often, Mol., your hand, dad, Nancy, sweetheart, I'm coming back to you, Patsy, me darlint, you musn't follow meg go back." With a cheering smile, though tears filled his eyes, he ran to fall in line. In the confusion, no one saw a. dog sneak through the crowd and board the ship. Silently the transport slipped'from its moorings and made its way as silently to the sea to meet its convoys. That night, Dexter Barry, though asleep amidst strange surroundings, felt that something most familiar was near him. He was suddenly awakened by muffled steps crossing the cabin fioor. In a second, a big body pushed itself close to Dexter and a loving head was heavily laid on his master's chest. Why Pat, me darlint, you here? Pard, you ought not have done it! But they can't send you back now. You will have to stay, old doggie. Gee, I'm glad!" Dexter, contented and hope- ful, threw his arm around Pat and fell asleep. The next morning, the captain, seeing no other way out of the difficulty gave his consent that Pat could be a passenger on the ship, and there were no happier friends in the world than Dexter and Patsy. ' 14 PF wk PF Pk Dk BK if Sli Two months passed. All was a dead quiet in the first line of trenches of the American sectorg an attack was expected and all were awaiting it breathlessly. - 68 THE POLARIS The Red Cross dogs were at their posts, ready for action and among them, proudly displaying his badge, was Patsy. Dexter, kneeling in the lookout post, occasionally whispered words of encouragement to him. . . With a sudden fierce, impelling force the attack began, the Sammies, at first bewildered by it all, quickly regained control of themselves and gave bullet for bullet, and shell for shell to the trench opposite. Pat didn't know how much longer he could stand it, he wanted to go and comfort his fallen comrades of the transport, but he must remain at his post. Suddenly the shelling ceased, black forms were seen, leaping from their trenches. The Huns were coming "to teach the Sammies a lesson. " "All right, boys," shouted Dexter. "Let's give it to 'em hard! Show 'em what we're made of! Send 'em back where they belong! Advance!" At the head of his company, across "No Man's Land," ran Dexter, calling to his men. Appalled at the sight of the charging bayonets, the Huns began to retreat, still sending their death- dealing fire into the ranks of that gallant company. ' Patsy, still on guard, felt his body grow tense as he heard faint and far away, his master's voice, calling to him, "Pat, come!" With an answering bark, Pat leaped forward and ran as swiftly as an arrow flies, to answer that call. Into craters, over bodies, he flung himself until the very breath seemed to leave him. But his master needed him and he must hurry on. The Germans had reached their second line trenches and were returning fire on the Sammies, who had resumed their old places. Patsy, nearly exhausted, stumbled on a familiar figure which put out a weak hand to caress him. Controlling his ecstasy, Pat lay close to the body to rest for a moment. Then with all his great strength, he took a firm hold on his master's collar and dragged him a few yards. Dexter groaned and became uncon- scious, yet Pat struggled on, and when a cruel bullet buried itself deep in his shoulder, he did not whimper, but worked more savagely. Hearing a shout and seeing his comrades come to meet him, he dropped beside his master. On a cot in a quiet hospital Dexter received the news that Patsy could not live. 'tPard," he cried, "don't leave me, donlt die, Pat, I need you!" A convalescent in his wheel-chair turned quickly when he heard that voice. "Dexter, old boy," he called. "Is it Pat that is dying? Let me see him, perhaps I can save him yet. Where is he? " LiT...... H g THE POLARIS 69 In a small ante-room an operation was performed on Pat by Dexter's old chum and it was a successful one. He was -gently carried to a mat prepared for him and in a Week he was on the road to recovery. Towards the close of a sunshiny day, the patients in the con- valescent ward heard a low whine, coming from the dog on his mat at the far end of the hall. Dexter sat upright at the sound and gave a low, clear whistle. ' All the convalescents, waiting expectantly, saw Patsy limp slowly through the doorway and come down the aisle to Dexter's chair, where he seemed to forget his wounds in his delight at being again with his master. After greetings were over each one in the ward wanted to caress the brave dogg then as the ward became quiet and the rays of the setting sun came in at the open window, Patsy laid his head Wearily against Dexter's knee, happy to feel his master's arm around him. Thus dusk settled on the two friendsg upon the boy, thinking of his family and of " the girl he left behind him" so far awayg and upon faithful Pat, who once again had answered his master's call, that age-old call of love and trust, of one friend to another.

It will stand out most clearly in your mind in later years. The other days, the days of honest work and play will be re- membered, but it will be your commencement week of which you will think oftenest. One can not see the real importance of one's task while still at work in any enterprise. It is after the work is done and one climbs to some high place, that he can look back at his Hnished work and judge its real value. So now, during commencement week, when you have finished your work, you may look back and see how important each day of it was. The Senior who has gotten the most out of his High School course is the one who can say, " I made friends, I learned to work when I didn't want to work, I learned how to go about learning and I gained some knowledge. " For such a one, commencement will mean very much, indeed. We say commencement, not graduation. It is true that you are graduating from high school, but it is a much more important fact that on this day you are commencing a life of very much wider bounds and more varied experiences. It is to prepare you for this that high schools are maintained. That you are graduating is important, but how significant that you are commencing! This is an auspicious occasion for classes in all years, but how much more so for this class, which is commencing this greater work at a time when the world is engaged in the greatest task to which she has ever set herself. Now more than ever detennination should be felt to go into the new phase of life and win. In the past year many people have been learning the cheapness of money. Money is only of value because of what it can buy. just now we are discovering how worthless the things are that money can buy. Success does not mean obtaining money. Far from it. Many a rich man is poor and many a poor man, rich. The really rich THE POLARIS 73 man is the man who is of some use to the World. The real test of how much a man is Worth, is, how many people would feel a lack if he should go out of the world. Go out into the World, Seniors of '18, with the detennination to make people need you. 'With the determination to be rich in the true sense, whether you live in a hovel or a mansion, and you will find that the world Will treat you Well. The world is always kind to the people it needs. May success go with you and may you every one become needed members of the human family. HIS issue of Polaris is the last by the present staff and the editor Wishes to take this public means of offering her sincere thanks to each and all Who have helped to make Polaris a success. To the staff which has so faithfully supported her, to the faculty members of the advisory board, who by their counsel and constant efforts always so readily given, have rendered very material assistance, and to the many students who have been constant contributors throughout the year, much gratitude and appreciation is given. We have enjoyed a very pleasant year. The associations with students and teachers, which have been a part of the year's Work, have made that work of great benefit. VVe wish all success to the editor of Polaris next yearg may he have as loyal support and as willing helpers. NIARTHA E. CRUM. S 74 THE POLARIS . g O .Ji 1-. SNATCHES FROM LETTERS FROM THE FRONT CClippings from letters received from Lawrence C. Yerges by the familyj " Our base has been moved and we are now in a village, a little larger than usual within shelling distance of the front. VVe were called out one night just after mess to go to the front. That was a couple of days after I wrote my last letter. Our position this time was in the third line trenches about a mile or so back of the front lines in an indirect firing position. It was the toughest we have struck yet. ' The attack did not come, but we were for four days and nights in an open trench with absolutely no shelter and it rained during two days and two nights. Mud, well, you should have seen us! ' "The second night we were there I had a chance to sleep for a couple of hours, but after trying to sleep for half an hour, I got up and went to the gun position. I had only been there a few minutes when it became evident that some action was taking place at the front. A minute or so later the rockets went up from the front line calling for a barrage. Well, wegave it to them. The gun I was on shot fifteen hundred shots in five minutes. the barrel got first red hot and then white hot. It was quite a sight, our battery of machine guns that night.

LETTER FROM CHAS. B. SAYRE LONDON, May 17, 1918. DEAR FRIENDS AT NORTH :- In pursuance of a promise exacted from me by several of you, I am impelled to write you, even if only briefly, of what has been seen that is of interest to you. My experience in transit must be omitted, much to my regret. In registering with the police, I took a few minutes the first day to step into one of the police courts where the same man acts as judge and prosecutor, conducting all the inquiry himself. Not many blocks away THE POLARIS 77 Cnobody outside of Columbus, I was told in New York, call them squaresj stands an imposing gray stone building of enormous proportions, which I entered out of idle curiosity, to find myself in an immense vaulted chamber or hallway from which radiate, in every direction, passageways to various civil and chancery courts, for I was in the great King's Bench building. All the higher courts of Great Britain sit here, even to the Supreme Court, which I just missed seeing in session. It is a curious and quaint sight to see all judges and bairisters in their wigs and surplices. We took a sight-seeing bus trip under the expert guidance of an ex-sergeant of the Royal Artillery, himself wounded four times, with two sons killed in Flanders, one at home minus a leg, and two more, all he has, on the front at present. Once I recall, in the solemn corridors of St. Paul's over the remains of the founder of the Y. M. C. A., after we had been invited to silent prayer, he turned an impassioned appeal to us to urge any "Yankee, " when confronted by some whining, weeping Boches, who might be captured, just to run them through, for as he put it, the only good German is a dead one. Our first point of interest that day was London Tower, started by the first Saxon invaders during the seventh century, where so many prominent figures have lost their heads, among them two wives of Henry VIII. The museum contains a great wealth of relics dating back to the first invasion of the Saxons. Perhaps the most fascinating spot within those famous Walls is the chapel, of purest Norman architecture, in which the knights, before being allowed to set forth on the Crusades, were tested by being compelled to kneel continuously from sunset to sunrise without support by so much as the tips of their fingers. A great feature of the Westminster Abbey is the coronation altar, where every one of England's monarchs, even to the present King George V, have been crowned. Of course you can read descriptions of these places of interest much finer than I can write, but your request is partially fulfilled and you are quite welcome. It was on the steamer Nellie. Some of the Iowa visitors were relating their experiences with fogs. "Yes, " said Curtis Cassie, "I've seen some purty thick fogs. Why, off the coast of Seagull inlet the fog was sometimes so thick that we used to sit up on the rail and lean up against it. One day while we were sitting up with our backs against the fog, it suddenly lifted and we fell into the water. " F w , . Y W THE POLAR'IS 79 PHILOMATHEAN NOTES HE members of Philomathean feel that they have been greatly beneited by the Work done in the club during the past year. The membership has been about forty. Several pins have been purchased, the standard one being used. We have had several meetings, although they have been a bit irregular for various reasons. The programs have been made as interesting and profitable as it Was possible to make them, and the faculty have been very kind in helping in the organization of the society and on the programs. Our topics this year have been widely varied. Some of the subjects discussed have been: "The Migration of Birds,"- "Russia in the War and Out," "Burbank Wonders," "Stamps," "The Aurora Borealis," "Washington Monument," "Conservation of Food," "Electricity" and "Woman in the War." - No society can be called a real society, no matter how much it does for its members, unless it has a social side. Recognizing this fact a Picnic and Dance were given at Glenmary Park on May 25th. If you don't think every one had a good time, ask them! The members on the social committee Were: Durava Wiseman, Chairman, Robert Jennings, Marjorie Minnich, Harold Montag and Maude Dickinson. We began the year with the following officers: Robert Manley, President, Bernice Hannan, Vice President, and Maude Dickinson, Secretary-Treasurer, and we closed with these members in office: Bernice Hannan, Presidentg Robert Jennings, Vice President, and Maude Dickinson, Secretary-Treasurer. The club closes its year With happy recollections of pleasant and profitable associations in the past and the members of the graduating class leave their best wishes for the continued success of the society in the future. MAUD1-2 DICKINSON, Secretary. x Y V i THE POLARIS 81 PIERIA Pieria Literary Society is closing a year which has been both a pleasure and a benefit to the members. We have ju st celebrated our twentieth anniversary of the organization, and because of this fact We can claim to be the oldest society now in existence at North High School. We have had widely varying programs during the year, and all have been very interesting, thanks to the program committee, Helen Hoskins, ex-otlicio chairman, Christine Yerges and Diana Taylor. It is our sincere hope that the future years may witness an ever increasing enrollment and interest in Pieria. According to custom, the president for next year was elected at the last meeting of the society. Helen Hoskins, whose picture you see in the insert, was chosen, and it is she who will have charge of the destiny of Pieria for next year. r The oflicers for the past year Were: Martha Crum, Presidentg Helen Hoskins, Vice President, Ruth Skimming, Secretary, Dorothy Boyd, Treasurer, and Clare Schooler, Sergeant-at-arms. V 4 V L. i THE POLARIS 83 ORPHEUS. The pupils of the music department at North High consider the year of 1918 the most successful one of any year. This department is made up of various organizations and each, in turn, have done something ,during the present year. The Orchestra has played for many of the Thespian plays. They also played at a reception given in honor of our Superin- tendent, Mr. Francis, at a meeting of the Central Ohio Mathe- matics and Science Teachers' Association at the Chapel at O. S. U., at a Parent-Teachers meeting at the Virginia Hotel and just recently at a commencement out of the city. The greatest effort of the musical department, however, was the presentation of "Martha" opera, by a chonis of over three hundred voices, assisted by the Boys and Girls Glee Clubs and orchestra. This presentation 'was successful, both financially and musically. At Mr. Robert's request, a portion of the opera was repeated at the second annual May Festival, given at Memorial Hall, by the various schools of the city. The repetition of the opera was very successful and Mr. Cherrington, of the Dispatch says, "The choruses were sung in fine crisp style with clear intonation and careful attention to shading by the large mixed chorus directed by Miss Falkenbach. " The girls of the chorus also had the opportunity of reappearing at the Patriotic League Rally, held in the Chamber of Commerce auditorium. They sang patriotic songs and it is pleasing to note that our High School outnumbered all the other High Schools put together. The Orpheus Club has also made progress. It has increased its membership to over one hundred and the programs for the year have been exceptionally good. A spread and dance were given during the year and the club is now planning a picnic. We are proud of our music department and We are glad to be -under the instruction of Miss Falkenback. FRED DAMSEL, Secretary. E i I 1 l 1 l 1 M ..ll. .,,.-.V V V w W i f w l v F THE POLARIS 85 THE THESPIANS The pupils of North High School who are fond of the drama and are willing to work outside of school time for their own enter- tainment and that of their friends, have from time to time, banded themselves together as a dramatic club. Such clubs have had many and varied objects to bring them into existence. The membership of one such club was exclusively boys, who under the guidance of one of their own number, Clarence J. Sullivan, produced "Our Boys" at the Chamber of Commerce Auditorium, some time during a certain spring term. V For five or six years such an organization maintained a brilliant existence under the leadership of Mr. Arlington C. Harvey, formerly Head of the History Department, who was at the same time the guiding star of the football squad. When the Athletic Association became self-supporting, the dramatic club was discontinued for a time. The immediate predecessor of the present dramatic club was organized for the purpose of providing the stage with settings and furniture. It was discontinued after a year or two of existence, and gave place the following year to the Thespians. The initial membership was much the same, and the aim was the same. The Thespian Club has had a continuous existence for four or five seasons, and at present has the largest membership of its history-about eighty-five boys and girls. At first the Thespian programs were more varied than they have been this year. Usually they consisted of an essay or lecture upon some pertinent topic, with a declamation, a musical number or two, and a short play. During the last year the Club has produced such plays as " Down in Maine," "The District Attorney, " "T he Troublesome Tramp, " "Alice in Wonderland, " "A Rehearsal at Ten," "Little Lord Fauntleroyf' and "A Receipt for Ten Thousand Dollars." What are the benefits to be derived .from membership in this organization? They may be viewed as three-fold: First, the purely intellectualg second, the power to express and portray varied emotions, and third, habitual poise and confidence in one's self. In closing, the Thespians express the hope that the work next year may be as interesting and profitable to the participants as it has been this year, and take leave of the graduating members by showering upon them a host of good wishes for their happiness and prosperity in the years to come. rw, , D, r V M, 4 THE POLARIS 87 THE WATAUGA ASSEMBLY The Second General Assembly has finished the session of 1918 very successfully. A quorum of representatives was always present and all our meetings were full of life. We discussed topics of the day in the form of House Bills which were presented by the members. Some of these bills referred to "The Declaration of War Against Germany, " " A simplified Taxing System," " Govern- ment Operation of Railroads, " " The Annexation of Hawaii, " etc. A Under Mr. Oman, as speaker of the House, all members acquired a lasting knowledge of parliamentary law. Our debators possessed a new freedom of speech in the warmth of legislative practice. The sessions have certainly been a pleasure worth while. So here's to the long life of the Assembly. FREDA SCHULTZ, Clerk. P I F l V' THE POLARIS 89 Y. W. C. A. "Smile awhile and while you smile Another smiles, ' And soon there's miles and miles of smiles, Because you smiled. " The Y. W. C. A. just closed its most successful year since its existence at North High School. All the High Schools of the city gave a joint reception and dance at the Elks Home in September, which started our relay of "smiles " The first work attempted was knitting for the Navy League and the Red Cross. The girls were very enthusiastic over the idea of turning the gymnasium into a knitting club for two days each month. This accounts for the fact that there were over sixty sweaters finished, besides wristlets, helmets and socks. Then the Y. W. C. A. decided to do their bit in this war financially, and for this reason "The Passing Show" was given, which included a short play, in which Clare Schooler, Christine Yerges and Martha Crum featured, a "Knitting Bee," in which Helen Wiseman recited "Some Little Bug," three numbers by a quartet, "Four Years, " a sketch on High School life, "Vogue, " in which our new member, "Donald Ross," sang "The Girl I Love Is On the Magazine Cover," Pageant of the Nations, with Althea Adams , as "America, " who introduced her allies, "Liberty" Olma Thomson appearing last, as the strains of 'A The Star-Spangled Banner" were heard. During the year the girls were given addresses on "Food Conservation, " "Patriotic League, " "Y. W. C. A. Work at O. S. U.," "Business Girl" and "Red Cross." The Y. W. C. A. was also entertained by pupils of Indianola School, who rendered a few artistic dances. In February the High Schools met at Central Y. W. C. A. for their annual banquet, which was made into a "War Supper" and in this North High girls represented the "Heavy Artillery. " After the banquet, each High School gave a sketch. ' The year's program closed with a Lawn Party at Mrs. Kauffman's. The Ofiicers for the past year were: President, Durava Wisemang Vice President, Katherine Kellsg Secretary, Lucille De Bra, Treasurer, Dorothy Bass. Committees-Chairman of Membership, Olma Thomason, Chairman of Program, Clare Schoolerg Chairman of Social, Dorothy Worthingtong Chairman of Service, Rhea McCarty. Our leaders were Ruth Stevens and Mildred McKenzie. 4 DURAVA WISEMAN, OLMA THoMAsoN. ,, vw, W 90 THE POLARIS President, PHILIP IIOUSTON Vice-President, DOROTHX' NIINNICK Secretary. DOROTHY New Treasurer, EDWARD ABERNATHY JUNIOR-SENIOR RECEPTION , Friday, May 24th, North High School was the scene Of great activity. The Junior-Senior reception and dance was in progress At eight o'clock the entertainment began in the assembly. It consisted of skits and sketches representing the countries Spain, Holland, France, Great Britain, Hawaii, Japan and United States. First on the program was the Spanish song, " La Paloma, " by Elena Calvo, accompanied on the guitar by Jessie Morrey. Following this, Martha Sanderson gave a gypsy dance. Next was it Dutch dance by Hilda Blose and Ruth Cox. F rance's skit made a very pretty picture with Madge Danford, Margaret Lawson and Kathryn Hall forming a background for Mr. Earl Hughs ex '11, who sang "The Marseillaise. " In Great Britain Grayliss Willison represented John Bull. Mildred Rader and Helen Schoene did the Scottish Highland F ling. Thelma Logan and Fred Damsel gave a good imitation of thc Irish Jig and Fred Damsel sang an Irish song entitled " Paddy's Legs. " Next in order was Hawaii, with Hawaiian music by Jessie Morrey, Dorothy Campbell, Pauline Dorn, Carrie Miller, Inez Park, Marie Shover, Fred Damsel and Donald Ross. THE POLARIS 91 Then came japan with "The Princess and the Baby Fox" played in pantomime. Those taking part in this were Dorothy Neff as the princess, Margaret Bowers and Helen Shade as maid and nurse, Serage Kutschbach as -Eto San, the prince, Mark Evans as the little boy and the magician and john Stoll, the baby fox. Dorothea Wilson read the story of the legend cast in poetic form by Miss Kiser. The United States was last, but certainly not least. Treva Siler portrayed Columbia, with Mayme Kerns and Shirley Mason on either hand as Liberty and Justice. Grouped around them were Ruth Patterson, Helen Hurley, Helen Kutschbach, Ruth Ford, Thelma Logan, Rhea McCarty, Ruth Cox, Mary Walker, Elizabeth Myers, Frances Sanford and Flora Myers, bearing the Bags of the allied nations. 'Mary johnson raised the American Hag, while a chorus of the nations made the room ring with the "Star-Spangled Banner." This was surely a fitting climax to the delightful program. ' The Juniors wish to thank the teachers and committees who gave their time to make the entertainment the success it was. THE SENIOR-JUNIOR OF 1918. LD NORTH woke up one fine evening from the slumber to which it early retires, to find itself decked out in festive array. The lights were bright, the floors slippery, and there was excitement everywhere, for it was the third of May, the date which had been ordained for the Senior-junior. After some preliminary dancing downstairs, the crowd adjourned to the assembly where they were entertained by a series of tableaux, staged by the various departments, and every- one agreed that they were the most beautiful and artistic things of the kind that North has seen for years. We wish here to extend our hearty thanks and appreciation to Miss Gale and Miss Daisy Scott, through whose efforts the tableaux achieved a great deal of their success. Last on the program was the song-hit feature, "put on" by those two distinguished minstrels, Mr. Wills and Mr. Vallance, dressed as ladies of the vaudeville circuit. This was a great success and the house roared its appreciation. Dancers refreshed themselves with punch served in the gymnasium, there being no other refreshments, as the committee wished to comply with Mr. Hoover's wishes wherever possible. In conclusion, we wish to thank the teachers of Miss Kirby's Senior Committee for their part in helping to make the Senior- Junior the great success it was and giving all of us such a good time.

Errors marred the game, due to slippery balls. This was North's first game of the season and showed how much improvement could be accomplished with a few practice games now and then. Hall weakened in the fourth and sixth frames and gave Aquinas a lead which they held to the end. This is the first time Aquinas has defeated a North team in years. Horst played a bang-up game behind the bat, while Churches and Maffet shone at the bat. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E Aquinas ................. 0005050101llli North ................... 01002000038 Batteries: North-Hall, Churches and Horst.

As yet North failed to gain strength of hitting in the pinches, with men on bases and the result was a shut-out. Churches was wild, due to a sore arm and had little control with men on base. Horst continued his good work and seemed to be the backbone of the team with his peppery talk.

Every time North and East hook up in a contest, look for a battle. Three double plays cut East out cold. Churches was improving as the game progressed. Wallace led off in the tenth with a hit to left and when the smoke of battle had cleared off five feet had dented the old pan. jones pegged two runners out at first from right field.

The council was elected early last fall, as follows: Seniors- Martha Crum, Presidentg Clare Schooler and Betty Laneg Juniors -Helen Hoskins and Marjorie Bass, and Sophmore Juliette Tracy. They began their work early last winter when Dr. Slagle, a prominent Columbus physician, learned that many boys at Camp Sheridan were in need of knitted articles. He promptly bought a great quantity of yarn and formed "The Quick Relief Knitting Association. " Two hundred girls of North High joined this society with enthusiasm and before many weeks passed there were turned out helmets, wristlets, sweaters and socks by the hundreds. About five weeks ago sewing classes were formed for the benefit of the orphan children of Northern France and Belgium. Four machines were procured for the classes. Skilled teachers THE POLARIS 97 were employed and the sewing classes met several days a week in the gymnasium. Such work as this should meet with the hearty response of every girl in North High. Last spring the Association was instrumental in forming Red Cross classes and so it is this spring. Classes in home nursing met every week in the gymnasium under the instruction of a competent nurse. A stranger might ask, "Who is back of these movements?" Our answer, of course, is "Miss Quillin." Do you ever stop to think what the girls would do without Miss Quillin and the gym? They both have become a part of our school lives. So 1et's give three cheers for Miss Quillin, our teacher and friend, Miss Quillin, whose smile can make anyone her slave, Miss Quillin, one of the best sports we know. HELEN HosK1Ns. GIRLS' ATHLETICS The past year has been the greatest in girls' athletic enterprises. Never before has so much class spirit and team rivalry been shown. One hundred girls enjoyed immensely playing basketball and from these the teams were picked.

Half the class time has been devoted to outdoor sports, baseball, hiking and swimming. The girls are especially enthus- iastic over baseball, which they play on North's Athletic Field. A summer tournament has been planned and the members of the winning team will be awarded one numeral toward their N. M 98' THE POLARIS I v JUNIOR GIRLS BASKET BALL TEAMfCHAMPIONS. The captains of the various teams are, Dorothea White, Alice Latham, Clara Schooler, Katherine Napier, Ardine Wildemiuth, Mary Henderson and Alethea Wilson. An extra class in gymnasium has been formed in order to teach the girls to be assistant teachers. Words cannot express how the girls appreciate the locker and shower room. Wouldn't it be Wonderful if we could have a fully equipped gym? Seventeen hiking clubs have enjoyed many trips to the sur- rounding points of interest. Each girl who has Walked sixty miles will be awarded a numeral. At last North,s tennis courts have been finished. Tennis has already become a recognized sport at North. If the river doesn't overflow and drown the courts again the boys and girls expect to play all summer. All these sports have been planned and boosted by the council of the Girls Athletic Association, which consists of Martha Crum, Presidentg Clare Schooler and Lena Marie Lane, Seniorsg Marjorie Bass and Helen Hoskins, Juniors and Juliette Tracy, Sophmore. MARJORIE F. Blass, Girls' Athletics Editor. THE POLARIS 99 FOOTBALL REVIEW At the beginning of the season Coach Kiefer, ably assisted by Mr. Swain, began to develop an aggressive, backfleld and a line that would hold. How Well they succeeded in attaining this ob- jective is attested by the record of seven victories out of eight games, with a count of 243 points as against 22 scored by oppos- ing teams. Graduation, as usual, takes a heavy toll of the best of the team: Stone, Sheard, Churches, Ross, Campbell, Erk, Harper, Wiper, Moul and Terrill, While Long and Heer have joined the colors. We will all miss Coach Kiefer, who leaves for the navy in a short time. We appreciate his Work this year and Wish him all success in the future. Your Captain takes this opportunity to congratulate the players of '17 upon their unfaltering loyalty to the best athletic traditions of North. DEAN Trzorr, Captain '17. 100 THE POLARIS BASKETBALL REVIEW At the end of the year, it is the custom of the captain to write a review of that year's work, but since we have no captain this year, I shall endeavor to say a few things in his stead. At the Hrst of the Basketball season, Sheard, our last year's forward, was elected captain, but after playing in a few games, he became ineligible through a misunderstanding of the rules. We had a very successful season, not having lost a game in the city, and winning the championship for the second successive time. This year we lose many good men, namely, Erk, one of the best and fastest men on the team, and "Monty" Campbell, our big husky guard who did good work all season. We also lose "Jim" Fogle, our center, who was one of our best scorers, and 'fBob" Nauts, our forward, who also was a valuable man.

THE POLARIS I0l I w 1 TRACK 1918 At the beginning of the Track season this year, things looked pretty blue for North's Track Team. Thomas Long had been elected Captain, but later enlisted in the army. However, Mr. Swain, the coach, soon had the boys Working and by the end of the season was able to cop the city championship. There being only four old men back, the team was made up practically of new material. We lost our first dual meet to East by a score of 56M to GOM, losing out in the field events. We only made six points in the State meet, where East, our city rival, pulled down second place. By "dope" we were slated to lose the city meet, May 31, but pulled a. great surprise by beating East by eight points. Churches, Erk, Atwell, Hill and Wiper gave good account of themselves and were largely responsible for winning the city meet. HAROLD WEAVER, Member of Track Team. l02 THE 'POLARIS l BASEBALL REVIEW The baseball team has had a very successful season, con- sidering the support given. Although the team did not finish Hrst, every member did good faithful work. The following letter men will be back next year: Mofiit, Wallace, Stephens, Salt and More, but next year's team Will miss "B" Churches, Mesloh, Horst, jones, Hall and Wiper. I certainly Wish the best of success to captain-elect Moffit and next year's team. The School this year has had two championships and so We certainly cannot complain. We hope that there may be loyal support next year and the good luck which is sure to follow it. i W R. C. TERRELL, Captain, ' 18.

" . 1 l l l 4 l l Y 4 1 l l l I l l 4 Il2 THE POLARYIS ALMOST A ROMANCE. HE boys in 'camp had been receiving sweaters, socks, hehnets, and various other articles for some time when one of them had the happy thought of writing to the senders under Hctitious names. The idea at once became popular and Smiths, Jones, Blacks and Browns grew in abundance over night. The girls were taken in for awhile with greater success than the boys had dared hope for, but "murder will out," and the day came when one of the boys' sisters came to visit the camp. She, noticing, that part of her brother's mail came under a strange name, was immediately interested and soon discovered the fraud. However, she said nothing about this discovery and the next week left for home, leaving them, as they thought, safe in their little joke. Not long after, the Ardon postmaster began to be strangely Worried. He had been a fixture in the Ardon postoflice for forty years and knew every one in the village. But now he was besieged by mail for girls of whom he had never heard. Still more puzzled was he when the mail was all promptly called for by his acquaintances among the girls of the village. Several times he hinted for an explanation of the new names, but the girls only smiled and took no notice of his remarks, forcing him to fall back on his usual philosophy, "Girls do be funny, an' there's no under- standin' of 'em. " ' Meanwhile the boys in camp remained in blissful ignorance of the counterplot and the correspondence went on, growing ever more and more interesting. Soon, however, it began to be noticed that while the others carried on a rather hit and miss correspondence, jack Conway's letters came with the regularity of the sun, and although the boys had early formed the habit of reading their letters aloud, it had been some time since they had heard any of his. The saying became prevalent about camp that :THE: Springtime Delicacies "The Little Place on the Corner" Strawberry Shortcakes 1453 NORTH HIGH STREET and a Variety of lce Creams, THE ONE PLACE IN TOWN Punch for Dances, Parties, etc. Chocolate Sundaes Bhd SOCIBS L R Your Caterer c.K Yf The McDonald Hardware Co. HARDWARE, PAINTS, OILS, ETC THIS IS 1204 NORTH W LAVVN IXAOVVER TINIE I-IIGH STREET Jack must be sure hard hit, and it was more or less true. He had become vastly interested in the girl who could write such "bully" letters, as he called them, and had a great desire to see her. Time' and time again he had asked for her picture, but had met with no success. He had imagined her in many ways, but that did not satisfy him, he wanted to really know. He wondered how he could have lived in the same village with her and not have met her. Maybe she had not lived there long. Surely that was it because he did not recognize the name and none of the girls in Ardon could be so interesting anyway. He had the startling con- viction that he would know her immediately if he met her, but through all his musing the one thought remained clear-he must have her picture. With that object in mind, he wrote to her again and a few days later was almost surprised, but undoubtedly delighted, to receive a letter from her promising the picture in her next letter. The time dragged for him, but at last what he called to him- self "her letter day" arrived. He stood with the rest, waiting, but the whole camp seemed to have gotten there first. He spent the time wondering what she would be like and if he looked as expectant as he felt. He hoped not. All things come to him who waits and at last his mail was shoved across the sill to him. He hurried to his tent and looked over his mail. Yes, there was her letter. Hastily he tore open the envelope, then hesitated, what would she be like, this fas- cinating girl? He could wait no longer. Quickly he drew out and turned over the picture of-his sister! KATHARINE CLARK, '18, Our Compliments to the boys of the T. R.
