THE POLARIS ANNUAL The Class Poem y THE PLAY By ALBERTA PIERSON A Carpenter, when time was not, With ageless forethought deftly wrought A wondrous stage 3 nor stopped until Each actor there, with love begot, Had found a special role to fill. This stage He set with seasoned panorama, The Spring that blooms and is benevolent, The summer's heat and stormy drama, The subtle buds with tantalizing scent, Fall winds that tall exotic poplars bend Neath threat'ning clouds that darkly roll, The melancholy charm that sunsets lend To wintry days, when every twig and blade A magnet for soft downy stars is made. And to the whole He gave a soul. Some that hereon act will occupy Quite boastfully the center of the stage, While others will stand coolly by And with the calm perception of the sage Philosophize upon the seeing. And there are many who will play their part In unknown deeps of an unfaltering heart, Quite undramatically- silent, alone. Here laughter, love and tears are known, And Grace is given just for being. We're standing now just by the wing, Hoping for approval's ring, Watching, waiting for our cue. The world and in it everything Is ours. Oh, pray we may be true! l'71l THE POLARIS ANNUAL E721 OF l923 ASS CI.. NIOR SE. THE THE POLARIS ANNUAL Class History R. PRINCIPAL, FACULTY AND FELLOW-STUDENTS: The facts with which we shall deal at this time are mainly old and familiar, if there shall be any novelty, it will be in the mode of presenting them. ANCIENT Whereas, in the year of our Lord, eighteen hundred and ninety- three, Mr. C. D. Everett was appointed principal of North High, he started his notable career by guiding the destinies of the first class, with 57 members and graduating them from North in '95, Let us look into the crystal globe and see what Mr. Everett had to contend with in those days. Tardy pupils stuttered such excuses as these: "the street car stopped because the horse lost his shoe," or "my bicycle tire was punctured." The boys hitched old Dobbin to the maple tree before they recited the Pythagorean theory to Miss Scott, concocted chemical solutions for Mr. Griffith, said their Hparley-vous" to Mlle. De Nagy or related Ivanhoe tourn- aments to Miss Kumler. MODERN Wh-ereas, in the year of our Lord, nineteen hundred and twenty- three, we are the last class to be graduated from the old North High, We hereby relate some of the many things Mr. Everett is still coping With. Tardy pupils mumble the following excuses: "the street car power was off," or "my machine wouldn't start." The pupils park their machines around the school block in gallant array, while they still recite the Pythagorean theory, scratch their heads over reac- tions, say their "parlez-vous" or learn the art of scanning. I. THE AWAKENING PERIOD As green young Sophies we were insignificant, foolish kids, ready to bite on every hook, but soon we began to make our way into the various activities of North High. The first honor that came to one of us was the election of NeWaTa Winn to the Girls' Athletic Council. Amy Frances Owens was next elected to Sophomore Editor of Polaris. We were very proud of Marion Lehne, Margaret Siebert, Ted Lilley, Franklin I73l THE POLARIS ANNUAL Teele, Benora Bunce, Paul Collins, Dorothy Hay, Betty Bell, Mary Catherine Wilson, Jake Shaeffer, Bill Vaughn and Howark Beckes who played in the orchestra the first year they entered North. Ronald Jenkins and Bruce Blanchard began their athletic careers in football and basketball and Don Goldsmith ran on the track team. Mary Edith Thomson and Amy Frances Owens were chosen to serve as tenth-year members on the Girls' Advisory Board. II. THE PERIOD OF ORGANIZATION Our Junior year found us no longer lost and bewildered, but full of interest and loyalty for old North. The Girls' Athletic Council was the first organization. to hold election in the fall. Betty Walker and Lelia McDermont were chosen to represent the class. Two of our fellow students were entrusted with positions on the staff: Artha Metcalf, Exchange Editor, and Clinton Roach, Junior Class Editor. Alberta Pierson began her literary career by contributing stories and poems to the paper. We had our first taste of class electioneering when the follow- ing Junior students received the highest popular vote: Dick Gor- don, presidentg Bob Redfield, vice-president, Amy Frances Owens, secretary, Margaret Berry, treasurer, and Bud Witter, sergeant- at-arms. This year the Junior Annual was inaugurated. Georgeanna Harkrader was selected in September as the 10th- year representative on the Girls' Advisory Board and they were fortunate in securing Alberta Pierson in June. Among the famous politicians unearthed in the General Assembly of Watauga Republic were Clinton Roach, financial clerk, and Blair Amos, assistant sergeant-at-arms, both of the Senate, and Alberta Pierson, assistant clerk of the House., Two Juniors became oflicers of Orpheus, Margaret Siebert, vice-president, Chester Gerlach, sergeant-at-arms. "Shorty" Moore, Melvin Downs, and Marcy Renick rolled the pigskin in the mud, led by Jenkins and Blanchard, who also shot buckets with the court squad. Our ball-tossers were Hallie Lyman and Bruce Blanchard. Ed. Oyer, Walter Schotts, and Harold Lee composed the trio of Junior track men. Not to be outdone, the girls did some real basket shooting in the Athletic Tournament. Dorothy Dillon, captain, led these frol- icking troopers: Sarah Reamer, Esther Headley, Pearl Rhodes, lf74l THE POLARIS ANNUAL Esther Allen, and Bea Clum. Edna Gilmore, a junior, was. award- ed a merit pin for the best untutored dancer, III. THE PERIOD OF TRIUMPH We started our last and most triumphant year at North with a boom! Every activity was an exponent in itself and a step toward success. We were the largest Senior class in the history of North, and by far the largest in the city. The Polaris staff of 1923 proved to be the most efficient in the history of the "North Star." Clinton Roach, in the chair of the managing editor, kept things on the hop, Alberta Pierson was lit- erary editor, While Artha Metcalf judged each one of us in writing our epitaphs. Roy Howey, by virtue of his position as business manager, kept his corps of add-hounds, Bob Hannum, Kenneth Howell, Claude Woodrow, Mildred Worley and Louise Roebuck, in check. Bob Redfield held down the place of circulation manager. Lillian Woodward specialized in organizations, Bea Fichtelman in girls' athletics, Margaret Berry in exchanges and Lucille McCrum in jokes. Speaking of artists, Betty Walker, Marcella Wishon and Bob Holaday produced the most striking cartoons of High School talent. Margaret Berry became a Senior member of the Girls' Advis- ory Board and the gym girls elected Mary Charlotte Anderson to the Athletic Council.

The dramatics organization under the name of North High Players, opened a most successful season by presenting "The Ghost Story" before the Central Ohio Teachers' Association. "The Turtle Dove," a Chinese Phantasy, was cleverly enacted at the Senior Reception to Parents and Teachers, March 9. The presen- tation of "Strongheart" April 16, surpassed in excellence any for- mer dramatic production given by the high schools of Columbus. We take off our hats to Mr. Thomas DeVore, '22, who played the T751 THE POLARIS ANNUAL part of the Indian, "Strongheart," in his own professional manner. Margaret Berry, playing opposite him, was a charming Dorothy Nelson. The success of each play was primarily due to the excel- lent coaching of our honorable dramatics instructor, Mr. C. G. Olney. Eleven Seniors Qmost of whom were mentioned in the Awak- ening Periodj under the direction of Miss Schilffarth, played in the North High Orchestra. During the absence of Miss Schilffarth, our gifted Howard Beckes, proved a capable director. Watauga Republic statesmen of '23 opened session the first semester. The venerable Clinton Roach and Russ Gagen, as ma- jority and minority leaders respectively, assisted by the Zanerian pen-scratchers, Albert Pierson and Margaret Berry, held the Senate in sway with an iron hand. Kenneth Howell was one of the most influential debaters. The popular body, the House of Represen- tatives, passed a number of worthy bills. Strong leaders were chosen in Ted Lilley, of- the majority party, and Dick Gordon of the minority. Detailed minutes were written by the clerks, Inez Levengood and Sarah Reamer. The N-orth High Debating Club, a unique organization, was created this year by Vernon Kertzinger and John Frank on their own initiative.. Miss Jacobs and Mr. Waltermire acted as coaches for the debate between North and South High. The efforts of three years' work of fifty-five Seniors were rewarded by membership in the local chapter of the National Honor Society. We are very proud of the honored "55." North High athletes opened the year's contests with real pep and spirit. The grid team-Captain Jenkins, Blanchard, Schotts, Downs, Renick, Moore, Berry, Cohan, and Markle-triumphed by retaining the cup. The court men, of which there were two Se- niors, Jack Powell and Bruce Blanchard, were runners-up in the city league. Bruce had the double honor of being captain of his own team and the All-High team. Howard Wilson, holding down the "hot" corner, and Blanchard' taking care of first, were the only Seniors on the diamond squad. Hoot Maxwell, cheer-leader, sure made a good healthvinstructor. Paul Collins, a member of the swimming team, earned his "N" by making a record for himself. Serpentines shooting through the air, bursting balloons, punch dizzy enough to make a permanent marcelle added to the fun at E761 THE POLARIS ANNUAL first Hi-Y.-Y. W. Frolic the night of April 21. Bob Hannum, as general chairman, was the big cog in the Mixer wheel. The marked success of the Hi-Y year was the result of the combined efforts of Bud Witter, president, and Walter Schotts, vice-president. "The Unknown Will," was the feature of the Senior Party, May 11. Margaret Berry and Bob Redfield were the co-authors. The halls were silvan bowers, tinted in delicate greens and laven- ders. The music was entrancing and the crowds danced on the same fioor as the class of '95. The last dramatic achievement of the Senior year was "His Majesty Bunker Bean," the Senior Class play. Tom Rogerson was a happy choice for the title character of Bunker, charming as is Rosalind Morrison, she was doubly so as the modified "flapper" Marie. The part of the rugged financier Breede, was splendidly characterized by Hazard Holdren, and Ted Lilley gave life and zest to every scene. Other parts were well filled by Bea Fichtelman, Betty May Miller, Mary Schooler, and Katherine Koch. It is possible that this history may seem uninteresting in tone when read without expression, but we, the historians, having seen this class of '23 pass the Senior goal, reach the pinnacles of success and watched its ideals grow into actualities, do declare it the greatest class that ever triumphed in Old North High.

The spirit of good time which permeated everyone present, gave ample proof that it was the greatest of all North's parties. The entertainment feature of the evening was a delightful musical tabloid, "The Unknown Will," the theme of which was written by Robert Redfield, the music by Margaret Berry, and the words by Constance Mills. Those taking part in the play were: Linton Godown, Russell Gagen, Ted Lilley, Tom Rogerson, Marion Witter, and Claude Woodrow. In the chorus were Betty May Mil- ler, Frances Roehm, Edna Gilmore, Lillian Paul, Mary Charlotte Anderson, Charles Farmer, Claremont Shaw, Robert W. Smith, Fred Pfeiier, and Richard Gordon. The play was coached by Mr. Olney and the dancing directed by Gwen Hammet. During the intermission a quartette composed of Arthur Burrington, Marion Witter, Howard Waugh, and Robert Cottrell, sang a group of songs. The remainder of the evening was spent in dancing and refreshments were served in the Home Economics room. In honor of the event the building's signs of age were hidden by a. charming disguise, the work of the decoration committee.. From a fountain in the midst of palms, lavender and green streamers formed a huge fan. Dance programs of green and white also carried out the color scheme. So delightful was this party that it shall never be for- gotten by the Class of '23. E811 HE POLARIS ANNU L E821 CLASS PLAY CAST SENIOR THE POLARIS ANNUAL Senior Class Play IS MAJESTY BUNKER BEAN,', a four-act comedy by Lee Wil- is son Dodd, was the Senior class play for 1923. It was cleverly presented at the Chamber of Commerce Audito- rium on the evenings of May 31 and June 1. The cast was very carefully chosen from a large number of candidates and each chaf- acter portrayed his role with exceptional skill and ability. Their success was due to untiring eiorts and to the excellent coaching of Mr. C. G. Olney, the head of the dramatics department at North High. Tom Rogerson, who played the title role, showed exceptional ability in the change of character from the Bunker Bean of the first act to the Bunker Bean of the other acts. Rosalind Morrison charmingly played the part of Marie, the Flapper. Hazard Hol- dren gave a very impressing characterization of "Pops," the father of Marie. The characters and players in the order of their appearance were as follows: Pops, Hazard Holdren, Bulger, Ted Lilley, Larrabee, Claude Woodrow, the Flapper, Rosalind Morrison, Mason, Blair Amos, Bunker Bean, Tom Rogerson, The Waster, Howard Waugh, Mops, Betty May Miller, The Big Sister, Katharine Koch, Grandma, the Demon, Beatrice Fichtelman, The Countess, Mary Schooler, Maid, Nelle Pickens, Balthazer, Marion Witter, Bud Matthews, Dick Gordon, Janitor, James Berry, The Lizzie Boy, Robert Redfield, Louis, Robert Smith, The Minister, Allan Cope- land. GRACE GILLESPIE LOUISE ROEBUCK E831 THE POLARIS ANNUAL i841 "STRONGHEART" OF ST CA THE POLARIS ANNUAL 'Stronghearti' TRONGHEARTU WAS EXCEPTIONALLY WELL GIVEN by the North High Players at Memorial Hall on the evening of Monday, April 16. The play is an American comedy-drama in four acts by William C. de Mille, picturing life, love and football at Columbia University, and is especially adapted to youthful players. Tom De Vorel completely stepped out of the ranks of the ama- teur in his skillful portrayal of Soangataha, the educated young Indian. Splendid support was given him by Margaret Berry as Dorothy Nelson, the girl with whom he falls in love. Just the right touch of comedy was given by Ted Lilley and Edna Gilmore as Billy and Molly. They struck that serio-comic Foote which is one of the most difiicult things to achieve in the dramatic art. Their little love affair delightfully balanced the more serious main plot. Claude Woodrow is to be commended for tiding over several "bad spots," and for his interpretation of Frank Nelson. A difii- cult character part was admirably done by Robert Redfield as Reade. Hazard Holdren's "Black Eagle" was only a bit, but it was done in such a way as to make it stand out. Mary Nichols took on the affectations of Maude Weston in noteworthy manner. Much could be said of the rest of the cast as to their capable and strong support. Their parts were clearly and well defined. In the picture, are: top row, left to right: Mr. Olney, who deserves a great deal of credit for his handling of such a large cast, Blair Amos as Tay- lor, Bill Davis as Tad. Second row: Robert W. Smith as Farley, Dorothy Pugh as Betty Bates, Robert Redfield, Mary Nichols, Darrell Trimmer as Josh, and Ira Jenkins as Dick Livingston. Front row: Betty May Miller' as Mrs. Nelson, Claude Woodrow, Margaret Berry, Edna Gilmore and Ted Lilley. Other members of the cast were Belding Wells as Thorne, Coach Hagely as Coach Buckley, Fred Pfeiffer as Ross, Allan Copeland as Skinner, and James Young as Nash. Friends of Dorothy's who made such an attractive party scene were the Misses Brownlee, Hobbs, Fichtelman, Lisle, Pickens, Meyers, and Roehm. Members of the football team and glee club were the Messrs. Berry, Moore, Schotts, Wade, Renick, Bell, Farm- er, Hannum, Blanchard, Waugh, Gagen, Shaw, Gerlach, and Trout. A crowd of 3500 attended the play. The proceeds were 381625, which paid for the new scenery Mr. Olney had already purchased for use in the production, and started a fund for the new North High, curtain. BETTY MAY MILLER. l85l THE POLARIS ANNUAL The Franklin County Spelling Contest ORTH ADDED ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP to her list When Elaine Ervin, one of North's representatives in the Franklin County Spelling Contest, was acclaimed the best Senior High School speller in the county at the finals held at Memorial Hall on May 7. Several months ago North entered the contest not thinking that she might have a champion. The team was chosen by having a preliminary match on March 28 in which two representatives from each of the various English classes competed. The eleven pupils who were not spelled down and who were thereby chosen to compete at Campbell Hall on April 13 were Elaine Ervin, Charles Reynolds, Clifford Reid, Jane Tilley, Virginia Moore, Louise Walk- er, Christine Allen, Kathleen Price, Mildred Ballard, Pauline High- land, and John Thomas. I As North is the only Senior High School in the north district, this team competed among themselves at the district match. Chas. Reynolds won and received as a prize a Webster's Collegiate Dic- tionary. Clifford Reid, winner of second place, Elaine Ervin, third, and Jane Tilley as alternate, were the other members of the team chosen to represent the north district. On May 1 the semi-finals were held at Memorial Hall. North's team was pitted against three representatives from each section of the city, but in spite of this Elaine Ervin captured first prize, a Webster's International Dictionary. Elaine, Charles Reynolds, winner of second place, and Carol Ready of the High School of Commerce, third, with Clifford Reid as alternate comprised the team which represented Columbus Senior High schools. The finals of the contest were held on May 7 at Memorial Hall. After? a long, exciting junior contest in which Mary Mininni, twelve- year-old grammar school pupil of Grandview, won first place and became the proud owner of a gold wrist watch, the Senior High pupils and the adults started on a long, hard-fought contest which lasted for two hours. Although L. M. Houston took first place, Elaine Ervin won the title of best high school speller in the county. She, as well as Anna Toops, the Junior High champion, received a consolation prize of a gold wrist watch. LOUISE ROEBUCK. I86l Nl 0 'A WNW Y X -1 N. ll 9 V G, 49.4" A , X 5 N ' 2 232 f i m .

Braving the storms of opposition and the high seas of financial distress, the ship drops anchor at the end of a strenuous cruise lasting one year. But, like Postum, there's a reason. The "Junior Class '24" was manned by a noteworthy crew. First we have at the helm one John Thomas, under whose able guidance the feat was accomplished. When not following the "sea" he is known as the Junior President. Next in line is Mary Bowen, the right-hand "man," as it were, of Mr. Thomas, who acted in the capacity of vice-president. The keeper of the "log" is Ruth Collicott. She became a great scribe as secretary. The fourth in number of our heroes is George Marshall. Be- ing the financial transacter of the crew, all of the business fell on his shoulders. Then last of all comes the sergeant-at-arms whose sole duty was to maintain order and keep all in "ship shape." This Frank Croxton did and more. "And so, good friends, when the ship's made fast, Don't think that you are through. Before you board the "Senior Class," Congratulate our crew." Junior Party IDST THE SOFT STRAINS OF A HIDDEN ORCHESTRA and the swish and gurgle of punch, the Class of '24 had their party. The old assembly was a maze of blue and grey, as well befitted the last social function to be held at "old North." A pantomimic performance entitled, "And the Lamp Went Out," proved to be the spice of the program though it had to share honors with Master Herbert Decker, a very pleasing soloist from Trinity Church choir. Dainty refreshments were served, being followed by dancing to the tune of a four-piece orchestra. Though accord- ing to the old adage, "He who dances must pay the fiddler," every Junior considered it worth the price. JUNIOR CLAss EDITOR.

Though unorganized, its 390 girls and 333 boys have made their influence felt in many school activities. We are willing to admit that the girls have made themselves most prominent, with Charlotte Sherwood, a member of the Girls' Advisory Board, Harriet Pratt and Henrietta Foster, members of Watauga, and Virginia Sullivan, a member of the Girls' Athletic Council. But the boys cannot be counted out, as Raymond Gross is a hard-working mem- ber of the Debating Team. Distinguished because of quality and quantity, this class drew its members from far and near. The Columbus pupils came from Indianola, Hubbard, Crestview and Milo. There are many from other states, including Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, and Michigan. The Sophomores also took a great part in the success of the two school plays, "Strongheart" and "Clarence," buying more than their share of tickets. Next year this mighty Sophomore Class will become a mightier Junior Class and its members being eligible to more school activities will do much to add to the name and fame of North High School.

A record was also established in the number of pages published, as there were two eight-page, seven six-page and six four-page edi- tions. The total cost of publishing the Polaris ran to about 553,000 .for the year. Advertisements amounted tc approximately 251,000 in the bi-weekly and S250 in the Annual. The cost of publishing the bi-weeklies was 31,450 and the Annual SL500.. Subscriptions numbered over 850, with a circulation of 1,000 copies. The num- ber of cartoons and cuts used in former years was more than dou- bled. New departments created were: The Literary Corner, North's Pictures, The Cubby Hole, and P. O. Laris. I The Polaris, as a medium of publicity, endeavored to unify and develop school spirit throughout the year. All legitimate school projects, organizations and undertakings were heartily boosted, and an attempt was made to supply the students with accurate, interesting news. The co-operation of the Polaris was a factor in the success of many projects, such as the naming of the new North, the simplified dress movement, anad the dramatics productions. T 95 l THE POLARIS ANNUAL Qur Purpose EMORIES FILL A SACRED PLACE in every human heart. And it is in our high school days, devoted to educating and develbping ourselves for the future, that we undergo expe- riences that We shall never wish to forget. It is with this thought first in mind that we present the 1923 Polaris Annual. Herein we have attempted to portray school life in such a manner that, when Time has mellowed these pages, perusal of them will recall in a flash a thousand and one memories of Old North High. We are deeply grateful for the privilege of preparing this book as a Memorial to the Senior Class. Although we have done our best, we are well aware of the inadequacy of our efforts. Yet if, in years to come, this Annual shall show the marks of many thumbings, we shall know and be glad that our work was not in vain. C. A. R. The Old Order Chcmgeth IME AND CHANGE CANNOT BE DENIED. In this era of rapid development and growth, the passage of a quarter of a cen- tury is suflicient to mark many things as obsolete, or dis- qualified for use. So it is with the Old North. Constructed thirty years ago, and greatly enlarged in nineteen hundred and two, it now fails to supply the educational demands of an ever-increasing community. With the completion of the new adequate building farther north, in a few months, the Old North will pass into history. Although sorry such a notable career as this must end, yet we realize that its useful days as a Senior High School have passed.

It is the only organization in the school that submerges its own personality in the interest of the whole student body. Altho it works quietly and unobtrusively it gives its support to all school projects. The first undertaking of the Board which concerned the North girls was the annual "Mixer," given in co-operation' with the Girls' Athletic Council in September. The next undertaking was to increase the Girls' Scholarship Fund which is used to help worthy girls who lack funds to continue their school work. With the help of the Council they earned 377.14 from candy and food sales. i During National Education Week the Girls' Advisory Board helped plan for an afternoon reception which was given at school for the parents. They boosted "Clarence" and "Strongheart" and, with Miss Skinner, encouraged the girls to sign the pledge and adopt the simplified dress at North. f The Junior and Senior members of the Girls' Advisory Board are elected from the girls who hold oiiice in any school organiza- tion. The tenth year representative is elected from the tenth-year girls who have been recommended by teachers because their qual- ities promise leadership. This year the members of the Board were: Amy Frances Owens, presidentg Alberta Pierson, secretary and treasurerg Mar- garet Berry, Mary Edith Thomson, Georgeanna Harkrader and Charlotte Sherwood, counselors.

L 101 1 THE POLARIS ANNUAL f102j WATAUGA SENATE THE POLARIS ANNUAL Watauga Assembly ECAUSE OF THE ENTHUSIASM SHOWN by applicants, Watauga was organized last fall instead of in the spring, as hereto- fore. Watauga is an organization modeled after the General Assembly of the State of Ohio being composed of two bodies, the Senate and the House of Representatives. One-fourth credit a year was offered to the members of Watauga because of its educational value, but the offer was refused as the members did not wish to be restricted by certain school laws and wished to think of Mr. Oman not as a teacher, but as one of them, As Mr. Fullerton, president of the Watauga Republic, was unable to deliver his annual communication in person, a written message from him was read. During this, the sixth session, twen- ty-two bills were introduced in the Senate, and twenty-eight in the House. An important bill affecting the entire school, was intro- duced by Mr. Redfield relative to the name of the new high school. As a result, a petition was drawn up asking that the name "North" be retained, and with twelve hundred signatures, was sent to the Board of Education. Watauga feels that to it is partly due the favorable action of the Board in repealing the name of "Edward Orton," which they had formerly adopted. The best debate in the history of Watauga took place in the Senate on the "Cancellation of Certain Foreign Debts," a bill intro- duced by Mr. Roach.. The gravest f?J occasion of the session was the impeachment of the Honorable Theodore Lilley as a result of a resolution intro- duced in the House by Mr. Gordon. The charges were: buying class votes, embezzlement of Senior funds, bribing Mrs. Gemunder, bribing detention teachers, forgery, and being a member of the "House of David." , The dignified Senators and august Representatives showed their dramatic ability at the Hi-Y-Y. W. Frolic in the Senate stunt of "King Tut" and that of the House, a burlesque on "Way Down East," entitled "Way Up West." After a year of hard labor the members of the General Assem- bly took time to recuperate at the annual picnic held at Mr. Oman's home on June 15.

The organization started the first semester with a membership of eleven and grew steadily, until by the end of the year it numbered thirty-five. The club did its bit toward paying the expenses of the Ohio Hi-Y repre- sentative in India by contributing to a fund for that purpose. During the year the club heard many well known speakers, including Jack Wilce, Andy Nemececk, Mr. Cartlich, Safety Direc- tor McCune, our own Mr. Lawrence, and many other interesting men. The high spot in achievement was attained April 21, when the Hi-Y, in co-operation with the Y. W., put on a mammoth carn- ival. The club was led this year by Mr. P. V. Barrett, general Hi-Y leader, and Mr. Kiefer, of North, faculty advisor and leader. The ofiicers were Marion Witter, president, Walter Schotts, vice-presi- dentg Wilbur Miller, secretaryg and William Davis, representative- at-large.

I:1071 THE POLARIS ANNUAL H1081 THE POLARIS ANNUAL Y. W. C. A. HE Y. W. C. A. had a larger organization this year than ever before, its membership numbering two hundred and fifty girls. The influence of this organization was felt not only in the school, but also in. the homes and community. The greatest work, as usual, was in social service. At Thanksgiving, twelve families were provided with food, donated by all the North High girls. At Christmas time, many small tots of the North Side Day Nursery were made happy by toys, candy, and books, while the Franklin County Children's Home and the little people of India were benefited in much the same way. Two cartons of Christmas gifts were donated to the Family Service Society, while six or eight families received candy, books and toysg and then, to bring cheer to a few more hearts, the girls sang Christ- mas Carols under the windows of the ill. The Elizabeth Home was not forgotten, and during the Easter season received home- made candies and jellies. Y. W. girls also knew how to have a good time. Joining with the Hi-Y, they gave a Hi-Y-Y. W. Mixer, on April 21, at the Cen- tral Y. W. C. A., proceeds of which were used to send delegates to the Y. W. Conference. They also gave a party each semester for the new girls. The girls were greatly benefited by talks given by many prom- inent women, and a Mothers' and Daughters' Tea, held May 16, gave the Mothers an opportunity to see the work of the Y. W. in the school.. This year's oiiicers were: Stella Mangold, presidentg Mar- garet Berry, vice-president, Constance Purdy, secretaryg and Beat- rice Fichtleman, treasurer, with Mrs. Maddox and Miss Kiser, advisors. The ofiicers for the coming year are: Grace McBay, president, Jane Goodrich, vice-president 3 Pauline Highland, secretaryg and Kathleen Price, treasurer. LILLIAN WOODWARD. If109j HE POLARIS ANNU f110j DEBATING CLUB THE POLARIS ANNUAL Debating Club HE DEBATING CLUB is not, as supposed by many, an entirely new organization at North, but an old club recalled to life by several boys interested in that subject.. North's former Debating Club was discontinued five years ago because Mr. Law- rence, the coach at that time, was no longer able to devote time to it. The organization of the present club took place in the latter part of February under the direction of Mr. Waltermire, and the following members Were elected to office: Vernon G. Kertzinger, president, John P. Frank, vice-presidentg Ira Jenkins, secretary- treasurerg and Donald Goldsmith, business manager. Mr. Waltermire was head coach, while Miss Jacobs assisted in collecting material, and Mr. Olney coached the teams in standing position and gesturing. The assistance given by Rev. Mr. Ralph of Plymouth Congregational Church, Was also of great beneiit to the boys. One of the biggest events of the year was the debate with South High, held May 18, when North's affirmative team met South's negative at North, while -our negative team visited South. The subject to which our team was challenged: "Resolved, that for- eign immigration into the United States should be furtherl restrict- ed by the imposition of an educational test," proved worthy of deep thought and keen argument. The members of the teams were as follows: Affirmative, Vernon Kertzinger, John Frank, and Harold Lee. Negative, Louis Sutton, Glen Kelley, and Ira Jenkins, with Ray Gross alternate. North has shown great interest in the revival of this club. which is as helpful as interesting, and is looking forward to great things from it as it becomes established.

I 111 J HE POLARIS ANNU 51121 THE POLARIS ANNUAL The A. F. N. LL FOR NORTH," the motto of all loyal North High students, gave rise to the club which took for its name the first three letters of the slogan. Formed by Jack Price in '21-'22, it admitted only boysg this year girls were given membership raising the number from eighty to nearly three hundred. A. F. N. was organized to promote better school spirit and organized cheering at interscholastic games. No meetings have been held this year because of the lack of space in N orth's crowded accommodations. Nevertheless, Houston, better known as "Hoot," Maxwell, has been oiiicial cheer-leader since last year's election, with Walter Dillow and Dick Hatch as assistants. Echoes of Hoot's hootings are still reverberating up and down the Olentangy valley. MARY CATHARINE WILSON. I 113 1 H E P OIIA R IS A.N N U I1141 VERGILIANS THE POLARIS ANNUAL Vergilians HE SECOND YEAR OF THE VERGILIANS has proven to be the success it promised. With approximately fifty members enrolled, meetings were held bi-Weekly under the supervision of Mrs. Clara F. Milligan. The club Was formed to study the great Latin writers and to learn more about the language of their day. This year the club selected a pin and motto. The pins have a large silver polished "V" standing out on a background of dull gold. The motto, "Non vivere sed Valere est vita," means "not to live, but to amount to something, is life." Many interesting meetings have been held, at the first of which Professor R. V. Smith of Capital University, presented the "Patriot- ism of Virgil." Professor Hayden Boyer, from Ohio Wesleyan, read a paper on "Marshall the Forerunner of the Columnyst" at another session, while at the open meeting the different Muses were represented by pupils who presented something characteristic of each. For the Ovid program original translations were given from the "Metamorphoses," "Pyramus and Thisbe" and "Phaethon," together with a short sketch of Ovid's life and a metrical rendering from the Tristia. Horace, another writer of that time, was the subject of an April meeting. For the Hi-Y.-Y. W. Frolic the Vergilians put on a stunt show- ing an incident in the journey of Aeneas through the underworld. Just before Christmas a party Was given at the school and later the Vergilian Valentine Party was enjoyed at the home of Marjorie Snively. At the end of the year the Vergilians held their picnic and scattered for the summer. The officers of the club are, as numbered in the picture: C15 Richard Gordon, presidentg C21 Blair Amos, vice-president, C33 Esther Allen, secretary, C45 Hazard Holdren, treasurerg and C51 Edgar Chittem, sergeant-at-arms.

I1151 THE POLARIS ANNUAL f1161 'US AUTRES" "NO THE POLARIS ANNUAL Nous Autres OUS AUTRESH FRENCH CLUB, one of the youngest organiza- tions at North, was supervised by Mrs. Della R. Maddox and Miss Marie Hahn, who organized the club three years ago. Bi-weekly meetings were held at the homes of members and occasionally there were open meetings at school. Miss Hier, of Ohio State, Miss Hughes, secretary of "Alliance Francais," Miss Hahn, of North, and Professor Foure of p Ohio State, addressed them on their experiences in France or of different regions of that country. An opportunity was given to each member to take part in the meetings by responding to the roll-call with something pertaining to the program. At the homes, the members took trips to Paris and various provinces of France. They studied famous painters, musicians, and the life of Sarah Bernhardt. Various kinds of French games put life into the serious C?J members, while violin, vocal and piano solos interested those who liked music. Some- thing new was accomplished this year when the club subscribed to a French newspaper which made the meetings as Well as class work, more attractive. A shower for Miss Hahn and the annual picnic were the two big social events of the year. In the Hi-Y-Y. W. Mixer four mem- bers put on a. stunt entitled "The Rivals." The officers for the past year Were: Amy Frances Owens, president, Florence Ewers, vice-president, Edith Landsittel, sec- retaryg and Isla Snider, treasurer.

The meetings were held bi-weekly, during class time. Pro- grams were presented consisting of poems, stories, anecdotes, music, reviews of educational articles, short one-act plays, and games. The pupils were graded on the way they presented their portions of the programs and their side given credit, the club having previously been divided into two sides, "The Gold" and "The Silver." This was done to stimulate competition. The following ofiicers were elected at an early meeting and presided throughout the entire year: Richard Gordon, president, Lillian Paul, vice-president, and Mildred Ballard, secretary. At Christmas time a party was given instead of a program. The members exchanged small inexpensive gifts which were then sent to Miss Rickey to give to poor families.

"Las Joviales Cherubines" held their meetings bi-weekly on Friday during class time. At one meeting Professor Nelson Gra- ham of Ohio State University, entertained the members with an account of his trip through Spain, at another Mr. Taylor told of his sojourn in South America, while dramatic ability was exhibited in the presentation of "Little Red Riding Hood" in Spanish. Although "Las J oviales Cherubines" had the small enrollment of ten, each member did his part in making the programs both profitable and entertaining. One-half of the club held offices. They Were: Elizabeth Shannon, president, Grace Meier, vice-president, Amy Frances Owens, secretary, Evelyn Graham, treasurer, and Betty Walker, Polaris reporter. The other members were: Clara Blackwood, Dorothy Hay, Kathleen Jenkins, Talbot Lloyd, and Irma McDowell.. AMY FRANCES OWENS. Los Majestuosos Os MAJESTUOSOS," the club of the 12-A regular Spanish Class, was organized at the beginning of the second semester, under ' the supervision of Mrs. Maddox. The purpose of the club was to promote Spanish conversation, so all proceedings were car- ried on in Spanish. Meetings were held on Fridays, bi-Weekly, at the regular class period, and during the semester many interesting programs were given. These consisted of poems, short stories, biographies of Spanish authors, music, and Spanish games. The officers Were: Margaret Yeager, president, Mary Edith Thomson, vice-president, Inez Levengood, secretary, Marion Wit- ter, treasurer, and Linton Godown, sergeant-at-arms.

FAROL" UE THE POLARIS ANNUAL "El Fcwoln L FAROLH WAS THE NAME CHOSEN for the club formed by the 12-A Spanish Class of Miss Walsh, which met bi-weekly on Wednesdays, during the sixth period. One of the aims of the club was to satisfy the desire on the part of the members to know something of the life and customs peculiar to the people whose language they were studying. After a little outline of the history and geography of the country, the customs of the people, famous authors, painters, and Spanish literature were discussed. Dra- matic ability was also shown in the presentation of short Spanish plays, and Spanish music and games added the necessary spice to the meetings. Members also gained first-hand information from a talk by Miss Walsh of her time spent in Spain, and were greatly interested by the experiences of one of their fellow members, Fred Wright, who spent much time in Mexico. At the Hi-Y.-Y. W. Mixer the club presented a Spanish dance and serenade. The executive body consisted of Lillian Woodward, president, Edna Parker, secretary, and Margaret Waid, Katharine Tobias, and Howard Toodle, program committee. Reading from left to right in the picture, the members of the club are: Top row: Mary Eggar, Elizabeth Sprenger, John Koch, Erma Wilgus.

This was accomplished by musical programs given once each month by well-known Columbus artists. The membership was limited to one hundred and fifty people, and only real music devotees were admitted. The following artists have appeared before the Orpheus in delightful and instructive programs throughout the year: Vocal- ists, Mr. Wylie, Mrs. Dorothy Stevens Humphreys, Miss Helen Hurst, Mrs. Maude Perkins Vallance, Mrs. Clara Denig Gemunder, and Mr. A. B. Waltermireg pianists, Mrs. Margaret Oman, Mr. Edwin Steinbrook, Miss Charlotte Vallance, Miss Frances Beall, and Mr. Harold Davidson, violinist, Miss Lillian Wood. The always much-looked-forward-to Orpheus party occurred the afternoon of June 8, where entertainment was furnished by the Orchestra, Boys' Quartet, and violin, piano, and vocal solos. Dancing and refreshments followed the program. The stunt presented at the Hi-Y.-Y. W. Mixer was clever and amusing, and typical of a musical organization. The ofHcers for this year were, as numbered in the picture: C15 Marian Lehne, president, 125 Janice Radebaugh, vice-presi- dentg C33 Margaret Seibert, secretary-treasurer, and, Q45 Arthur Burrington, sergeant-at-arms.

Just as the work was well started under the new director, Miss Bertha Schilifarth, she met with a serious accident which confined her to her home for several weeks, leaving the musical devotees almost without leadership. However, under the able directorship of Howard Beckes, Concert Master, the work progressed and the organization was able to retain its well-earned reputation. Throughout the year the orchestra played for many functions, among which were Parent-Teacher Meetings, Senior Parents' Reception, "The Ghost Story," Girl Scouts' Pageant, "Strongheart," and the Orpheus Party. The organization at present consists of twenty-three members. In the picture they are: Top row, left to right: Harold Eng- lander, Mary Catherine Wilson, Howard Beckes, Paul Collins, Jacob Schaeffer.

In 1920 and '21 the title was won without dispute, but this year four teams, North, East, South, and Aquinas, finished the season with nearly equal records and as a result each of them claims the championship. North, by virtue of its previous triumphs, still retained the three cups. Here is a little dope on the seasong see if you can. figure out the real champion. South beat East 16 to 13. East won from North 20 to 0, while North in turn, trounced South 13 to 0. Aqui- nas, in its only local game, walloped West 46 to 0. North opened its season at Newark, Friday, September 29. The heat was almost' torrid, but nevertheless the team led by Capt. Jenkins put up a stil? battle and held Newark to a 0-0 tie. The next two weeks were idle ones for North, since Ashley and Wash- ington C. H. cancelled on short notice. WIN FIRST LOCAL GAME West High was met on Ohio Field Saturday afternoon, October 28. North celebrated its first local appearance by trimming the Hilltoppers 24 to 6. Renick, Jenkins and Blanchard scored North's touchdowns, while a place kick by Jenkins accounted for the other Maroon tallies. The following Saturday, North journeyed to Cleveland and clashed with the powerful Lakewood High team. During the first half North appeared sadly ofl' form and failed to show the strong oiensive punch displayed against West. Lakewood led at the end of the half 19 to 0. In the final periods both teams counted two touchdowns, but this does not show how completely North outplayed the Fifth City team in the final periods. Moore scored North's first marker when he grabbed a lateral pass from Blanchard and ran 20 yards through a broken field for a touchdown. A few min- ntes later Blanchard carried the pigskin across and his drop-kick brought North's total to 13. In this contest the Maroons showed a fine air game, completing 20 passes out of 37 attempts. EAST PROVES NORTH'S WATERLOO It was a sad day for North when East humbled our pride. The Orange and Black squad completely outfought and outplayed North , If135j THE POLARIS ANNUA l136j TEAM BASKETBALL THE POLARIS ANNUAL and deserved their 20 to 0 victory. It was East's-first victory over the Maroons in three years, as well as North's first local defeat in the same period. Captain Murphy of East, scored all his team's touchdowns and by his playing, earned himself an All-Hi berth. North played Trade on a rain-soaked field and humbled the Carpenters 18 to 0. Blanchard's 55- and 80-yard runs for touch- downs were features. Moore scored the other marker shortly before the game ended. Groveportlll Whoever heard of Groveport? Just what is that hamlet? That's what the North squad thought before the game and as a result they had to be shown. They were!!! The hillikens from a school that enrolls only 50 boys, surprised, out- tricked, outfought and outplayed our haughty team and incidently set the local high sporting circles in a whirl when they won a 13 to 7 decision. IWAROONS HAND SOUTH FIRST DEFEAT The stage was set on Ohio Field Thanksgiving afternoon for the comeback of the North eleven. Eight thousand followers of high school football were gathered in the west stands or standing around the gridiron.. Very few of them even conceded North a chance against the undefeated South squad which needed only this victory to cinch the grid championship for 1922. Southsiders were there 3000 strong, with a band 'n' everything. Coach Hagely had been working earnestly with his gridders for the past week and when they tramped onto Ohio Field that memor- able November afternoon they were a new team in all ways except players and uniforms. During the first half North had a slight advantage. Each team made three first downs, but Jenkins's punting was so far superior to that of the South booters that the Blue-clad team was kept in its own territory the entire half. By taking advantage of breaks in, the game, North scored two touchdowns in the final half and cinched victory. Reigel fell on a loose ball for the first score while "Shorty" Moore raced thirty yards after intercepting a South pass for the final marker. They say a good team makes its own breaks, so it was with North in this game.. The Maroons' second team played two games early in the sea- son and gave great promise for next year when they walloped Ash- ville and Canal Winchester by 18-0 and 19-0 counts respectively. If 137 1 T H E P OIJA R IS A.N N U'A L Introducing the Grid Squad Captain Ronald Jenkins was the best scholastic guard in town. Jenks did all the team's kicking, as a punter and field-goal kicker he was the class of Central Ohio. Bruce Blanchard at quarterback, well deserved his All-Hi job. He will be missed next season.. Bruce could kick and pass well. Another All-Hi man on the team was Bob "Shorty" Moore. One of the fastest backs in the city, Moore caused no end of trouble for North's opponents. Bob does the graduating stunt in June. Captain-elect Harry DeVore at center, was a strong link in the team's offensive and defensive chain. Melvin Down used his strength to good advantage at guard. He will be missed next year. North's tackles, Chuck Lewis and Ottie Reigel were as good as any pair in the league. Lewis has another year.. Bill Cohan, Jim Young and Carrol Cone were able to hold their own at the end positions in most games. Young was especially adept at grabbing passes. Of the trio, Bill is the only one to grad- uate this year. Bob Waid, a fast smashing type of halfback, will be, back next fall and should be a sensation. Marcy Renick, after two years as a sub-lineman, was shifted to fullback this year, and made good from the first. Renick was North's most consistent ground gainer. He graduated in February. Joe Grady was ruled ineligible following the West game.. His absence was keenly felt, as he was North's best Wing man. His play in the early games warranted his "N," Bob Bell, Roland Hagely and Hal Lyman, a previous letter man, saw much service in the backfield and were rewarded with "N.'s" Bell is back next year and should make a strong bid for the fullback job. Playing their first year of high school football, Jim Berry, Walter Schotts and Bob Dowd developed into valuable linemen and with more experience, might have gained a first-team position. All but Berry graduate. Gordon Cone, Markle, Paul Ashbaugh, Roy Smith, Walter Ford, Merwin Keihle and Gaylord Stephenson played in several games and deserve mention. The last four named have another year and should be a big help to Coach Hagely next fall. I138j THE POLARIS ANNUAL Basketball By HARRY DEVORE 0RTH'S 1923 BASKETBALL SEASON, although not the success it was hoped to be, cannot, in all true justice to the team, be referred to as a failure. Fourteen games were played throughout the year and of these, ten were victories, while the re- maining four were dropped by close decisions, giving the Maroon team a grand percentage of .715. With four letter men from the preceding championship team back to fill their old berths again, the outlook for another pennant- winning team this year was very bright. At the first practice session called by Coach Hagely over fifty candidates reported for the court team. This number was gradually weeded to the fol- lowing players: Captain Blanchard, Russ Parker, Chuck Lewis, Jack Powell, Jim Young, George Kanavel, Wayne Helfrich, C. Tur- ners and Dick Allard, who were carried throughout the season. The team opened its season successfully at Westerville, Friday, December 22, by winning from the suburban squad 22 to 15. The following night Coach Hagely took his proteges to Cambridge, where North was defeated 21 to 12. VVIN SIX IN A Row Two other out-of-town clashes were won by North before the time came to make its local debut. The victims in these games were McConnelsville and Grandview. When Captain Blanchard led his Maroon cohorts onto the large Coliseum floor Saturday afternoon, January 20, North followers were treated to their first glimpse of the fast set of players who were to represent them in the struggle for, supremacy in the inter- scholastic league. With Commerce as their foe, our boys tallied another victory, disposing of the Bookkeepers by the one-sided count of 38 to 23. The following week-end North had an easy time with the lamentably weak Trades High iioor squad. Parker scored all but six of North's points against Trade and was easily the star of the contest. Thursday afternoon, February 1, Coach Hagely took his team out to the Columbus Academy gym for a game with the "Prep l139j THE POLAREIS ANNUAL School Boys." The game was North's all the way, as the final score stood 46 to 14 with the Academy lucky even to annex 14 points. The stellar roles in this contest were shared by Blanchard and Lewis. The following day North made its third appearance of the year on the Coliseum floor and as on the two previous occurrences the Maroon and Gold colors emerged highest. This time it was the high-stepping West High squad, so ably coached by Rodney Ross, an old North grad, that Hagely's boys took into camp. Parker played one of his best games of the year, while Captain Blanchard and Lewis were close behind him for starring honors. SOUTH STOPS MAROONS To every winning streak there is an end, and when South defeated North Saturday afternoon, February 10, at the Coliseum, the South Siders not only shoved North from first place and took a commanding position in the high race for themselves, but in a materialistic way they avenged the 13-0 grid defeat North handed them Thanksgiving afternoon. South's victory came as a severe shock to North followers, as the Maroons appeared to be the class of the city. EAST SPRINGS SURPRISE The biggest upset of the season, from a North viewpoint, occurred a week following the South defeat and was occasioned when North fell before the once-defeated East team. North appeared completely lost in this contest and did not get going at top speed until the game was nearly over and as a consequence the Maroons' total was one short of East's score when the pistol cracked ending one of the most bitterly-fought games of the year. Two successive defeats and the failure of Parker, North's star forward to perform in his usual brilliant style, apparently affected the team's morale, as when the weak Aquinas squad was met, the Maroons experienced great difficulty in annexing a three-point decision, whereas all other first-class local teams had fairly mauled the Green and Gold squad by one-sided scores. NORTH CoPs Two AT TOURNEY With the city season only a matter for memory, North entered the Central District Elimination Tournament held at Delaware under auspices of the Ohio High School Athletic Association and succeeded in making a favorable showing before being eliminated in the semi-finals by the fast Columbus West squad, which North had previously defeated. In the first round North drew Urbana If140fI T H E P o1.A R IS A.N N U'A L and defeated that team with little difficulty 24 to 15. The next morning Newark was downed with even less difficulty. When North and West met, the Hilltoppers were hardly given a chance to win, but several long shots by Murray and Stewart soon placed them ahead and it was a man-sized job for North to keep within a reasonable distance of them. The final score stood North 25, West 29. Introducing the Team Captain Bruce Blanchard, one of the best floor guards ever to play on a Columbus high team, closed his career at North with much honor. For the second successive year Bruce was a unan- imous selection for a guard position on all the down-town paper's All-Hi teams and was further honored this year in being chosen to captain each of themythical selections. Russ Parker was undoubtedly one of the best forwards in the High League, but a let-up at a critical stage of the year, worked havoc with him. Parker is captain of next year's team and his playing should be a strong factor in bringing the championship cup back to North where it belongs. A general handy man on the team, playing every position in one season with equal success is the record owned by Chuck Lewis. Chuck has another year at North and with his two years' experi- ence will be a strong asset to the team. At Delaware Lewis was chosen the best guard in the tournament. Coming to North from Ashland, Ky., where he had played on the floor team for two years, Jack Powell was able to give a good account of himself at either guard or forward. Jack graduates in June. After a rather slow start, Jim Young found himself and through hard work and good floor ability, he won himself at place on the team at either center or guard before the season ended. Jim will be back next season and should go big. George Kanavel won an "N" at the floor game for the first time this year., Playing back-guard, George was a hard man for opponents to work the ball by. He has another year. f1411 HE POLARIS ANNU I1421 and Wilson. Parker, Pfefferle, Blanchard, Young, Waid Captain cLaughlin, Row: M nt Fro and Klug.

HD ach Hagely Co Fox, Top Row: THE POLARIS ANNUAL After playing in the first three games of the season, Ronald Jenkins, North's first-string center for the past two years, was, through some technicality, ruled ineligible. Jenk's playing was missed in many games. Wayne Helfrich, Turner, Allard and Van Carr look like good prospects for next season. - lBasel9all By HARRY DEVORE 0RTH'S BASEBALL TEAM this season, although not a champion- ship contender, should be well up in the race when the sea- son ends. As this copy goes to press, the team has played four games, winning from Columbus Academy and West by 18-O and 6-5 counts, while East and South nines were too much for the Maroons. Russ Parker of basketball fame, captains the team and does the greater part of the pitching. Behind the bat, "Bonie" Daughton, an old battery mate of Russ's at Indianola, catches Parker's slants. Bruce Blanchard, at first, and Jim Young at short, are as good as any in the league at those positions. Bruce also takes a whirl at the pitching job whenever needed. His southpaw slants are very deceiving. Critchiield at second, and Wilson at third, com- pose the rest of the infield. In the outer gardens, Mayol, late of Richland, Ohio, Johnnie McLaughlin, formerly of Dayton St. Marys, and Bob Waid, form a hard-hitting troupe that can go and get them whenever necessary. On the utility list Coach Hagely has Helfrich, Perril, Stewart, and Raines, all of whom can give a good account of themselves when called upon. Blanchard is the only member of the team to graduate, so a great team should represent North next spring. Track By H. D. D. OT :MUCH Is KNOWN OF NORTH'S TRACK OUTLOOK at the time of this writing.. Temporary Captain Johnnie Williams will run the low hurdles. Ward Petri has been training hard for the dashes. Walter Ford and Gaylord Stephenson will be found in the distance runs. In the weight events Jim Young and Chuck Lewis can be counted on to annex a number of points. If143J THE POLARIS ANNUAL Russ Parker is the best prospect on the team and should carry North's colors through to a couple firsts in either the dashes or the broad and high jumps in the city meet which is to be heldi June 8, on Ohio Field. Carwell Rawkins is doing Well in the quarter mile. At the Ohio State University indoor relay carnival held the past winter, North lost its relay race to East. Petri, Jenkins, Williams, and Rawkins ran for North. The East cinder men made the fastest time of any of' the high school teams competing. In the high school 50-yard dash Ira Jenkins placed second for the only points North scored in the meet. In all probability Coach Hagely will arrange dual meets with South, East and Aquinas for this spring. Sumnnnng By H. D. D. FTER THREE YEARS or SWIMMING SUPREMACY East was dis- lodged from that title the past winter by the tank stars from Columbus Academy. North, after an absence of three years from swimming activities, entered the meets this year and finished third in the title race. There is one consolation, however, in this showing: South finished a poor last in the four-team league. Col- lins, Bazler, Ford, Foster, and Rogerson were North's leading scorers. With this year's experience, a real tank team should represent North next season. Tcnnw HIS YEAR'S TENNIS TEAM made a fine showing considering the very bad conditions under which they were forced to practice. Men who came out for the team were Thomas, Marshall, Lea, Shaw, Redfield, and Roberts.. North entered the Interscholastic Tennis League and ended well up in the race. They played East, South, West and at the time of going to press, it was uncertain whether they would play off the postponed game with Aquinas. The team sent in an entry to the Ohio State University Invitation Tournament for Ohio High Schools. The outlook for a good team next year is very promising, as Thomas, Marshall and Shaw will be back. If these boys play the game that they played this year, they should put up a great fight for the championship next year. 51441 THE POLARIS ANNUAL Girls' Athletics By BEA FICHTELMAN HE GYM SEEMED TO HAVE a great attraction for the girls this year, as there has never before! been so large an enroll- ment. Although there were many obstacles to overcome, under the direction of Miss Mayes Rickey, teacher and confidant of the girls, and the "Girls' Athletic Council," the athletics depart- ment came through with flying colors. Soon after the semester began, the election of the Council members was held. Heretofore the girls were nominated at a mass meeting, but this year the girls of last year's Council nomin- ated the representative gym girls who were then elected by popular vote. Those elected were: Mary Charlotte Anderson, Senior, secretaryg Margaret Carr, Junior, treasurerg and Virginia Sulli- vant, Sophomore. The other members were: Ne Wa Ta Winn, president, Betty Walker, vice-presidentg and Lelia McDermont. The "Girls' Advisory" and the "Athletic Council" gave their third annual "Get Acquainted" party for the new girls at North. INTERESTING COURSE OFFERED Miss Rickey gave a very interesting and varied course this year. Stationary tactics, for concentration, corrective gymnastics for posture in walking and sitting, and orthopedic exercises as preventive measures against broken arches, flat feet, and weak ankles, constituted the corrective course, while interpretive dancing based on original pantomime studies and music interpretation, allowed the girls free reign for their own individualities. On Wednesdays Miss Rickey gave talks concerning morals, manners, preventive hygiene and dress reform. GYM CLASSES OVERCROWDED Because of the crowded condition of the gym classes, it was impossible to give the "Open Lesson" as had been done before. Basketball and the Co-ed were also omitted this year.. No placea or time could be found for the girls to practice basketball and there L1451 THE POLARIS ANNUTAL ,Ll GIRLS' ATHLETIC COUNCIL Standing in picture, left to right: Mary Charlotte Anderson, Betty Walker, Lelia McDer mott, and Virginia Sullivant. Sitting: Ne Wa Ta Winn and Margaret Carr. l1461 THE POLARIS ANNUAL were too many girls to gather together in the "Old North" for the Co-ed, consequently, no basketball-no Co-ed. The girls were in- dustriously preparing for "Field Day," the big event of the year, when it was unceremoniously postponed until the following October. PRIZES AWARDED Fon PosTERs Posters and health talks were required of each gym girl this year. - Eight prizes were awarded and nearly fifty honorable men- tions. Betty Walker received the first prize. Her poster was unanimously chosen as the most original, the most artistic and hav- ing the best advertising quality. The other girls receiving prizes were: Erma Wilgus, Frances Stull, Mary Cost, Dorothy Gill, Inez Levengood, Virginia Hamer and Mary Katherine Huggins. The judges were: Miss Mary Gale, Miss Gertrude Silver, and Mr. Noel Piersche. Hiking clubs were formed with fourteen very capable girls as leaders. At the end of the term, those girls who had hiked 100 miles, were awarded N. H. S. pins. Although the gym girls have worked under many difficulties this year, through the tireless efforts and persistence of Miss Rickey the athletics department has made a good record and as the old saying goes, "All's Well That Ends Well."

The choice of one particular article was so difficult to make, that these extracts have been selected, especially applicable to us, who are venturing upon new roads: 14011 "Store your mind with thoughts worth whileg be independent of the world of chatter-yes, even occasionally of the world of books, for in this lies the secret of a virile personality-and the key to contentment." i 1f0J1 "IU is not 'money' that 'is the root of all evil' as we often mis- quote, but 'the love of money'." 1c0J1 "Surely one secret of genius is this-the ability to remain interested in new things, even into old age." 10311 "If you have anything of real value to contribute to the world, it will come through the expression of your personality, that single spark of divinity that sets you off and makes you diierent from every other living creature." 1 10,1 "Take time each day to live in simple friendliness." 1 40,1 "Don't criticize until you're sure you're right, then don't do it." 1 co, 1 "Let him have invested his whole life in the mastery and the cultivation of his own best self, and he has laid up riches that can- not be lost." I:150j THE POLARIS ANNUAL April Lure By MARGUERITE RIEL You ought to see the funny ways Our back yard acts these April days. Now, our back yard is nothing great, It ends out at the alley gate. All winter long I did not care If there were any back yard there, I liked the parlor's cozy nooks, I liked my music and my books, I liked the supper table's looks, When I walked out by night or day, I chose the nice front way. Now, mornings, when I leave my bed The back yard smiles and nods its head And beckons me, as if t would say, "Come visit me, please, all day." And when in school I sit at ease, That back yard, saucy as you please, Sends wireless messages to me- Of baby violets in their beds, Of tulips pushing up their heads, Of peony sprouts in pinks and reds, Of swelled buds on the old peach trees. The afternoons are joys indeed- I sense the swelling of each seed, The back yard whispers in my ear That lilac time is drawing near, When Mother calls "Supper-Yo-ho!" The back yard says, "Aw, must you go, How can you waste your evenings so ?" Our back yard has such funny ways4 It makes me laugh these April days. ! I151j THE POLARIS ANNUAL The Princes Emerald By HILLIS LUMELY HERE WAS NOTHING T0 OFFSET THE INTENSE HEAT. NOt a leaf stirred. The river steamed under' a fiery sun. Native children played in the dust in front of mud-baked huts. Suddenly I noticed a strange hush and silence. In front of one child I saw a large cobra, coiled preparatory to striking. I hesi- tated. If I killed the snake I would save the child, but if I missed fire assuredly the infuriated reptile would instantly strike. I raised my gun. Through the sight I saw the forked tongue darting malic- iously. I fired. The snake squirmed convulsivelyg life had fled. A woman ran from the hut. Throwing herself to the ground, she cried, "Sahib! You have saved my son's life. The gods bless you! Come tonight to the Bridge of the Blind Beggar when the moon rises. I will show a sight that white man has never seen." After my evening meal, I hurried through the narrow streets to the famous bridge. Except for one soldier the place was desert- ed. The moon had not yet risen. Darkness was intense. A shal- low stream flowed slowly in a blackness like that of the Styx. Bare branches against the sky traced fantastic figures. Suddenly it grew lighter. A low building rose out of obscurity and dim apparitions took on definite shape. A light flickered on the guard's helmet. Hearing a soft footfall, I turned and saw the woman for whom I was waiting. We crossed the bridge, saluting the guard and silently followed a narrow path among the trees. After walk- ing half a mile, there loomed up before us the ruins of an old fort- ress, cold and gray in the moonlight, its towers and buttresses crumbling under the unkind hand of age. The jungle had en- croached and was reclaiming its own. The woman stopped to light a torch which gave off a thick black smoke with a wavering glow. The cold stone echoed my footsteps. Once I heard a rustling and a grating behind, and my blood ran cold. Turning I saw two eyes gleaming in the blackness. We entered a tunnel so low I could not walk upright. Suddenly we emerged into a large room. The torch revealed huge chests piled against the wall. Some were broken open, show- L152j THE POLARIS ANNUAL ing masses of gold and silver, with fortunes of jewels. But what was truly amazing was a marble table where rested three immense gems in massive settings -- an emerald that blazed with green fire, a ruby like a drop of blood with a sinister smile in its depths, and a diamond, the largest of the three, dazzling in its brightness. I reached forth to take the ruby. The woman stayed my hand. "Do you not see its wicked smile ?" she cried. "Touch neither the ruby nor the diamond, but the emerald is yours. Centuries ago this was the treasure room of the greatest Prince of India. Only three men knew its secret, the Prince himself, the High Priest, and the Commanding General. One day the General brought home these three stones, taken from the temples of the far North. The priests there vowed eternal vengeance. They collected an army and destroyed the Prince's kingdom, but never recovered their lost jewels, though they still search. We must hurry before our torch is extinguished." When I returned to the United States I gave the emerald to one of the large museums, retaining for myself only the smaller jewels, which I had taken from the treasure chest. Years later I noticed in a newspaper that the museum had been robbed. Curiously enough the only thing taken had been the emerald. The police traced the thief to India, but there lost the trail. It was commonly supposed that he was the one guilty of a million-dollar theft from an English castle, baffling detectives. I, however, suspected that the priests of the North had recovered their lost treasure. f153I THE POLARIS ANNUAL A Moon A. L. P. I' saw a moon, a moon of gold, All warm with dreams. It throbbed with life and love And called my vagrant heart Away to romance lands. Slim strips of night Then passed between, And the moon took on An oriental lure. A disk of living gold- It wavered, and was gone. And then I saw the stars, Calm, potent, understanding, Everlasting- As a profound love That bides the passing Of a glowing fancy. Life By FRANK HAMMIL Life is like a little brook That doesn't take a second look, Bounding swiftly on and on, From dark at night till early dawn. And all the while it deeper grows, And wider, as the current goes, Flowing on to seas of care, So, masters doubt and trouble there At last arising to the sky, In billowed clouds floats gently by. The soothing zephyrs waft it on, We know not whither it has gone. f154J THE POLARIS ANNUAL Romance By MARGARETTA FLEMING HIS SUMMER I SPENT at a very respectable, very stupid hotel in northern Michigan -the sort any tired old bachelor would choose. After a breakfast I bought a cigar and strolled out on the porch, viewing the summer colony and its lake. "Whatever made you choose Lakeside?" queried a voice, not from my elbow, but from nowhere. I glanced around, but could see no one. "Here am I behind the pillar," quoth a voice, not bell-like, rather husky, I should say. My gaze lighted on a delectable morsel-a girl! Her hair was not soft and silky, due to a permanent wave Cyou can always tell 'emj and her eyes were not cool gray, but soft, lazy brown, rather heavily fringed with lash lux. Her mouth was not the typi- cal heroine's, firm, inclned to be large, but a whimsical one. What- ever Nature made it, the thick coating of lip stick had molded it into Cupid's own beau. I shall not attempt to describe her apparel which I do not remember, but I can say she was clothed in an air of languidness. There, I forgot to mention she was knitting! So unusual a pastime for a heroine, too. How well I could have put it by just vague suggestion as - she asked, knitting her brows, or, she was seated on the railing as she cast off - but I am afraid the latter would not do. It gives the impression that she was cast oi the railing, or worse, that she was fishing. Ah me! All this is far from my subject. Such are the wan- derings of an old man's mind. You remember that she had just questioned my choice of a summer resort. "There isn't a thing stirring around here," came her next remark. "On the contrary," I replied, "I think there is quite a stiff breeze. Then like a iiash, I saw through her veiled remark. "Ah, yes, I see what you mean, that things are pretty quiet around here." "The same," was her cryptic, not to mention curt reply. "But there is a dance tonight -- dreadful bore," and with that she L1551 THE POLARIS ANNUAL stretched with the delicacy of a feline and extinguished -- went out, as it were. I was left to my own thoughts, and having none, I went to the postoflice for my mail. That night I went to the dance, since every one else did, and there was no other place to go. The dance fulfilled the girl's verdict -it was a bore. Intend- ing to watch young people, I found only stogy fat, or ghastly thin ones. There was only one redeeming feature for rather, twob the girl and her partner. I followed them carefully with my eyes at the dance, and as carefully with my feet afterwards. "Ah, how romantic," I murmured as I saw them turn to the hotel dock which extended far over the water. "Surely, surely, they would not object if I, devoid of love, pick up a few crumbs of theirs!" They walked slowly to the end of the pier. "Out into the moonlight on the water," I thought, and crept cautiously behind them, sitting down discreetly in a dark distant corner. The girl dropped to the bench with a deep sigh., "How typical!" thought I. He sat down beside her and stared off over the water. They sat thus while I heard my watch tick five minutes, watch- ing them silhouetted against ,the sky. I sat pensive over all the great loves of history. I gazed at the stars and moon and thought. This same moon had probably looked down on some such scenes on the banks of the river Nile. This same moon - I was abruptly awakened from my pensive mood by a move- ment. The girl slowly rose and shook her companion a little. "Bob!" she called almost roughly. I leaned forward breathlessly, when suddenly and without warning, my Parker's Patent Pocket Alarm went oif. Why, only Parker knows! I sat rooted to the spot, frozen, rigid, and all that sort of thing with horror, I had a temptation to jump off or up, I knew not Which. The girl turned in my direction. "Oh, it's only you," she said with apparent, but unflattering relief. "Come here, will you? My son has gone to sleep." I1561 'K wf X ' Q5 !
