SMITH WE RESPECTFULLY DEDICATE THIS ANNUAL Goodbye to You, Seniors " Time waits for no man,” you have learned within these massive walls; The past four years seem but a day, a day of success and falls. And though the way was steep and rough, your goal hard to attain. Be frank with yourselves and you’ll give all to live those days again. In each successive class are some who leaders seem to be. Some who are content to be followers, some who are taught to see. There are the ones beloved by all, and some we hardly know. But always we miss a smiling face, when the senior class must go. We love to think that you have gone into that larger field; We know that to the bustling world some greater good you’ll yield. Oh, it’s smiling that we say “good-bye”, dear graduates every one. For way down deep within our hearts we know you’ve just began. We’ll miss your well known faces, we’ll miss your happy ways; But we know ’tis the price of friendship that we all must pay some day. So with tears held back we clasp your hand, as you start into the world; We who remain shall always keep the Black and Gold un¬ furled.

Tv-eniy-tzvo HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1924 HEN Akron North High re-con- venes on September 2,1924, fif¬ ty-seven of its former students need not return. Those fifty-sev¬ en are pupils who, having com¬ pleted the required course of study, as outlin¬ ed by the Akron School Board, are entitled to write " alumnus” after their names. They remain fifty-seven out of the one hundred and thirty-three who entered high school in September 1920. The first recollection which some of the boys have of high school is when they sat on the windows of the manual training room, waiting with dread the expected initiation of the sophomores. Not being of the same color as most " freshies” we v. ' ’ere given no welcome party. We had two parties that first year- one a Christmas party, in the gym, with May Thompson as Santa Claus; the other, a schol- larship party for all who had an average of 85 or above. As this was a party for the intel¬ lectual, part of the evening was spent in hav¬ ing regular classes for the day with five-min¬ ute periods. The recitations were all of a very serious nature, and no class since then has been able to surpass the brilliant recita¬ tions given that night. For the Christmas play that year a repre¬ sentation of the “Bird’s Christmas Carol” was given under Miss Rook’s direction. Donald Bishop, the smallest boy in the freshman class, ably enacted the part of " Baby Larry” in this play. In the spring of that year a dresscon- test, in which three of the freshmen girls took part, was held at North High under the supervision of Miss Tobin. Later, these dress¬ es were exhibited in Chapel. The next year at the Sophomore Social, the class took a trip to the North Pole. Per¬ haps the seniors thought it was cold enough for us, for we had no ice cream that evening. The latter part of that year the boys were restrained under the able leadership and guid¬ ance of the new teacher in room 203, who made them behave in a most orderly manner. In our junior year several of our members, especially Luther Hosfield, had acquired such proficiency in argument that we consumed many valuable hours discussing some of Miss Rook’s pet theories. Because of this practice Luther afterward mcde the negative debat¬ ing team. In this same class we also acquired much practice m making outlines, many yards of which we handed down to the next junior class, as soon as we had no further use for them. It was during this year that the first litera¬ ture banquet was held. All the ghosts of the past were there that evening—the Devil and Tom Walker, Robin Hood, John Alden and Priscilla, Ichabod Crane, Titania and her fairies. Rip Van Winkle, Highland Mary, Ro¬ meo and Juliet, the witches and even Red Death! Because of the effort and cooperation of our class, the banquet was very success¬ ful and has become an annual affair. The lat¬ ter part of the year, our class as llA’s gave a successful garden party to the seniors. Cal ifornia poppies graced the tables, st»-eamer3 of all colors hung from the balcony, and w’staria grew over white trellises at the doors. Social activitiesduring our senior year have not been too numerous. One mid-year partv, after being postponed only twice, was given to the January class. Seniors, on most occasions, are dignified, but those present chat evening will assure you that Emil Olhoeft on a Kiddie- Kar and Royden Whaley on a broomstick pos¬ sessed no dignity whatever. The Kitchen Kab- inet Orchestra, under the direction of Thelma Waite, played the Wedding March for the wedding which resulted from a leap year rom¬ ance. The wedding procession was led by the flower boy, Emil Olhoeft, followed by the ring bearer, Matilda Manziona, carrying the ring upon a pillow in a snow-white casing. Lucille Foote was best woman; Budd Van Kirk was man-of-honor; Mr. Snyder and Mr. Kelly act ed as groomsmen; Wesley Hargraves, as the father gave Katie Braunstein, the bride away Edna Ingals was officiating clergyman. The Senior-Faculty basketball game was a memorable occasion. The huge crowd that attended this spectacle will never forget the way Red Jones dribbled through the two faculty guards, Messrs. Kelly and Weber, or the finished manner in which Mr. Naugle tackled his opponents Because of the unseen and sinister influence which the faculty ex¬ erted upon the timekeeper, they managed to keep the game going until they had worn the doughty senior warriors out. After the slaughter was over the scorekeeper announc¬ ed that the faculty was three points ahead. The scorekeeper was not a senior. Our class has taken part in all of the school activities. Lasc year two of our number had (Continued on page 49) Tiuenty-three CLASS PROPHECY Dear North High, loveliest school of all the land, Where high is lifted learning’s regal brand, Whose halls happy schoolmates still wander through. Whose teachers guide us into pathways new, I Seat of my early training! Bring to mind Familiar views of all my classmates kind. First Luther Hosfield, our class president, , Has gone the way his inclinations bent. For now he stands the head of all the land Elected by the new Progressive Band; While, in his very able cabinet. Two well-known members of our class have met. For Ivan sits as Secretary of State; Attorney-General Likens is his mate. Miss Myrtle Porter, once our secretary. Now nurses sick folk, making them quite merry; M ore skilled is she to diagnose the heart Than Doctor Merkle any other part; While Edna Sclirank, always most sedate. At last has met her long-expected fate— A schoolmarm, she imparts by rod and rule The well-known precepts of the old-time I _ school. To North High girls, Margaret Hochberg teaches gym; Our football boys are kept in perfect trim By Bill, who, after a coach’s course at Yale, , tTurns out fast teams, that win but seldom fail. (Our Edna Ingalls teaches history. And Donald Bishop rants on chemistry. While all the students down at Akron U Professor Whaley’s course with zeal pursue— Not R. O. T. C. of a martial sound. But a Radio-Senders’ Training Course pro¬ found. Rose, with care, instructs the little folk— A teaching staff more mighty than the oak. In New York at a most exclusive shop, (The owners of it keep forever on the hop) T Kenty-four Miss Gladys Ratcliffe plans and makes the clothes, ' In which our Olga Kuehnert well doth pose; By Roma Allison all the sales are made; Lucetta is for advertising paid. To satisfy an exacting clientele Styles must be found both novel and genteel. So Martha and Elizabeth journey to far strands. To Burma, Thibet and other heathen lands; They beseech the Sphinx far up the river Nile To solve this question of the latest style. Then those who wish their cares in books to bury Can find Miss Johnston in the city library; And Harriet for information they can see. She answers all their questions without fee. Other classmates, too, have entered public work. The city’s needs and welfare they do not shirk; Ruth Manderbach —none with her compares. Now for Akron’s orphan children cares; As matron Marie Colegrove appeals By cooking for the orphans tempting meals. Our class in good stenographers abounds: Lucille Eoote the keys persistently pounds. While Gertrude Scheck writes shorthand at great speed. And calls Bessie to explain what she can’t read. The adding machine is run by Marie Mekeal, She lets Mildred Davis all the letters seal. When a customer comes to pay his monthly bills A receipt for him Matilda quickly fills; While, surprising in the way she turns out work. Is Marie Gurney, foremost credit clerk. Emil Olhoeft, who spent tedious hours In drawing diagrams of bugs and flowers. Now has turned his excellent scientific knowledge To raising trees and plants with worm-proof foliage. The directors of the modern stage need never lack Entertainers skillful; if, in fact, They look among the June class of ’24, They will find talent of all known kinds and more: There is our noted singer, Edna Morse, Who has gained much profit from her music course; And of our number one fed by the muse Has won renown—a poet— Lillian Hughes; Katie is now a tragedienne of parts Surpassing Duse and the divine Bernhardt; The greatest artist on the musical stage Is Sarah Washer, wonder of the age. She plays the violin for Eugenia Aunian Who interprets all the dances, Greek and Roman; JFesley Hargraves stars in Hollywood today, A noted rival of “Doug” Fairbanks and Charles Ray; His screen director is George DM?nico, Whose bashfulness was forgotten years ago. Kathryn Mosholder is married now. And Wilda Esworthy has ta’en the vow, ’Tis rumored, too, that Thelma TV ait e And Karl Freund have set the final date. To poor, benighted heathen far from here Dollie Hayes, the mi ssionary, carries cheer. While in America the T an Kirk Times, Carries news of all the world to other climes. On the staff a woman reporter, anxious to please. Is Bernice Calbetzor —she writes up social teas. Helen, Flops and Meradith have combined. Each with a sincere purpose in her mind. To do a great work for humanity Restoring youth by osteopathy. A beauty shop next door owned by Helen Proves faces are “not always what they seem.” Edna Siddall makes all kinds of motions Demonstrating Bendell’s Beauty Lotions, For wrinkled brow, pale cheek, and double chin Become “schoolgirl complexions” once again. Ronald TVliite —no eagle is more fleet— Has made a record at the Olympic meet. Renowned also, but not for races won Is Joe Fiasco, a dentist whom none shun. If you have toothache see him—don’t delay— To the tune of jazz he pulls teeth painlessly. An architect of grave yet pleasant mien, John Tullio’s working out our cherished dream. Planning with care and patient skill A splendid, large new high school on North Hill, Which, finished by Trimmer man in every part. Will prove itself to be a work of art. Joe Conti and Louis are also business men, Partners who sell real estate from hilltop to the glen. Homer Jones, the biggest talker in our school. Now works a trade where talking is the rule, A traveling salesman, he attempts to sell Victrolas that record our talking well. The prophetess, who searched beneath blue Heaven To trace careers of all our “57,” Grown fond of this select society Has signed with Heinz—endless variety. Dear North High, you have taught us so to live That to the world In later years our best we’ll give.

It will do you no good to remember That mean thing that was said about you. This life is too short to get even For all spiteful acts that you know; So forget it, dear friend, forget it. Show wisdom and just let it go. Many good men have been ruined. And many fine women, too. By some knocker starting a rumor With hardly a word of it true. So if you hear of some one knocking A man’s or a woman’s good name You can bet it’s a lie, so forget it. And never repeat it again. —Martha Hughes, ' 24 FRIENDSHIP I There are many kinds of friendship, and as through life you go. You will find they strengthen you much more than the friends themselves could know; The yearnings of your heart are filled when you stop to think with pride Of all the faithful friends you have, just trudg¬ ing at your side. II Always when your parents greet you in their sympathetic way. You straighten up and face the world, just as if to say: “The greatest thing that you can have, when upon life’s waves you’re tossed. Is the parents’ love that strengthens you when you think all hope is lost.” T flirty-six III Your brothers and your sisters, whose com¬ panionship you’ll feel. When Fate just turns against you and causes you to reel. Will always turn to help you when you begin to know defeat And make you try to realize that you’re still too hard to beat. VI There are teachers, there are schoolmates, from whom one little smile Will make you feel that living on this earth is quite worth while. And your feelings, as you leave them when your whole day’s work is done. Make you know that Life’s great battle is very nearly won. —Alice Milford,’26 ®ur (lift from dnb From ' yond the gray where Angels play, He sent To me the dearest friend I ever had- (The sweet lady who oft made me repent, And cheered me when my life seem dark and sad.) My friends all failed me, when assailed, to fight Battles that they themselves had helped begin. No friend, other than my mother, in sight Shared each sorrow, each strife, through thick and thin. ’Tis known that God could not have trod this earth. Been everywhere, given full share of mirth. Never forsake us but help make us brothers; Men need a guide to drive aside the shame. Evil, and wrong of weak and strong; He came Upon a plan which would help man—Mothers. —Gabriel Jacoby,’25 T hirty-seven RUSHING THE COUNT HIS idea of never telling your love is bad stuff. I’m here to inform you. Some live wire comes along peal¬ ing the merry marriage chimes, and all you wind up with is a piece of stale wedding cake. ■ Of course one reason I never said anything to Ruth is because I don’t seem to be able to find a position suitable to my ability. At least everybody I work for tells me that; and I’ve had a lot of jobs in the last two years- And again Ruth’s father has more money than dogs have fleas; and maybe he can’t strangle a nickel till the Indian calls for help! Nobody but a real ink-slinger could give you an idea of what a regular peach Ruth is. As I am only an amateur with a very small vocabulary, I am only able to give a limited description and let it go at that. Our house is on Eighth, near the park and the Highlands live, right opposite. Ruth and I went to the same school. In the sum¬ mer her folks and mine go down to Cedar Point, where our place is next door to theirs; vSO naturally I see a lot of Ruth. Shehas always kept me guessing and I have never been certain how I stand. To be sure 1 know she likes me — or rather, she did. It may have been this brother and sister stuff for all I can tell. I’ve never been able to get up nerve enough to find out. She always was a regular icicle anyhow. No petting parties or hand-holding goes with her, or they didn’t un¬ til recentiy--now I’m not so sure. And that father of hers! He’s one holy ter¬ ror. If there’s anything in this transmigra¬ tion of souls idea, Simon Legree must hav had a round-trip ticket. I’ve seen lots of fel¬ lows just about curl up and pass away when old man Highland looked at ’em. It isn’t so much what he says, but he gives you the up and down and makes you feel smaller than one of Barnum’s midgels. I know what ails him—Ruth is the only child and he’d rather lose his right eye than see her married. Of T hirty-eight course every fellow who meets her falls hard right off the bat, sd there’s always a gang of them hanging around their house. If old man Highland had his way, he’d take a club and clean out the gang; but Ruth’s the boss, and after her comes Mrs. Highland, so the old man only wins show money in the betting. The Ruth Admiration Society got a hor¬ rible shock a few weeks ago. It was called the Count De Luna, first name something which sounds like Looeegee. Where she dug him up, nobody knows; but she pokes around in a lot of queer places. She had a settle¬ ment bug for a while and collected a bunch of specimens. Maybe this was one. I had dinner at Ruth’s right after the Count showed up, and I tumbled in a minute that he was a phony nobleman. The only thing pol¬ ished about his manners was the way he pol¬ ished off everything in sight. To hear him inhaling soup beat listening to a symphony or¬ chestra. But believe me! he was a regular humding¬ er for looks. He was a swell tennis player- too, and could tickle the mandolin to a fare- you-well. And when he sang that song in Italian—that Chilly-Billy-Beans thing—the girl’s eyes would pop out like boiled onions and they’d sigh till it sounded as if all the steam- pipes in town were leaking. That boy was a lady murderer, for sure. One night Highland waylaid me, as I was coming in at their gate. “See here, Henny,” he said; “this goings- on has got to be stopped.” “What goings-on?” I asked inn ocently. “You know well enough,” he barked. “It’s this spaghetti devastator that Ruth’s wished on us. I don’t like the way he mops up soup and I don’t believe he’s any more a count than you are. I’ll bet eleven dollars you’ll never amount to a hill of beans; but at least you know how to eat soup without alarming the neighbors. Now it is up to you to chase this stii-etto-juggler away from here.” I ' ll bet I lay awake every night for a week, but I couldn ' t rake up an idea. Then one day I was getting a hair-cut in the bar¬ ber shop in our building, when I got started talking to Tony about the Count. After I was started I told him the whole story. Tony’s an Italian, too, and he’s had a lot of experience in every line of work. Well, anyway, Tony said the Count was surely a counterfeit, for he called himself De Luna, which means “moon” in English, and he knew there were no counts by that name in Italy. So that settled that. Tony offered to get rid of the Count in less time than it takes Zev to run a mile, if I would give him twenty dollars for doing it. He wouldn’t tell me what the scheme was, but he guaran¬ teed to chase the count so far away that it would cost a dollar to send him a postal card. Now our church pulls off a lawn festival every year at the house of one of the town’s four hundred, and this year it was to be at the Highland’s. They felt it a big honor to have their place chosen, for, in spite of all their money, they had never been able to pull the social grade, and Ruth and her mother were ambitious that way. The old man didn’t care for himself, but what the women folks wanted suited him. So they planned to have a big splurge and make the whole town sit up and take notice. As a head liner they were going to spring a real Count on the assembled multi¬ tude with a little gargling and mandolin play¬ ing. That seemed to me to be the very time to give this guy a black eye for life, so I told Tony to get ready for the grand finale. He was all set until I told him it was on Satur¬ day night; then he went off like a Wall street bomb. Saturday was his busy day and he couldn’t possibly leave the shop. The end of it was I had to give him more money. Well, the big night came around and things were going along all to the merry with every¬ body behaving pretty. Finally the time came for the Count’s little act. He used the front porch for a stage, and he did look cute enough to eat without sugar or cream. When he start¬ ed to tinkle the mandolin and pipe his lay, the girls gathered around with door-knob eyes as usual. This was the cue for Tony’s entrance, so I went down to the gate to let him in. He was here all right, and believe me! He was some sight—all dressed in rags and looking as if he hadn’t eaten since the big wind in Ireland. We moseyed up the walk without being noticed, for every one was watching the Count per¬ form. Of a sudden Tony gave a war-whoop and burst into the audience like a horse cart going to a fire. He yelled something in Italian and flew up the steps at the Count, who yelled something back. Tony promptly punched him on the nose. Whack! went the mandolin on Tony’s head; and the Count ran down the steps and tore through the crowd with Tony after him. Maybe there wasn’t a commotion around there All the old hens were cackling at onci. Most of the girls didn’t know whether to laugh or cry so they compromised by having hysterics. You never saw a place so steamed up in your life. It was worse than Akron the night of the Armistice. Everybody was: “Well, I never”-ing and “Ain’t it awful?”- ing all over the place. Then in comes a cop dragging Tony by the back of his neck. Tony pointed to me and said: “That’s the fellow! He gave me thirty dollars to come down here and tell the people this guy that called himself a Count was my son.” “He did, did he?” yells old man Highland. “And what right have you got to say he called himself a Count? What do you know about him, hey?” “I know a lot about him,” said Tony. “That fellow ' sright name is Mascaro. Heranabank on North Street a couple of years ago and flew the coop with all the money. He got two hundred dollars of mine—That’s why I chas¬ ed him.” The policeman let Tony go; and I thought old man Highland would pin a medal on my manly chest for getting rid of the Count. But not so you could notice it! He says that I spoiled his chances of ever putting Ruth and Ma Highland among the highflyers and that he will never hear the end of ic as long as he lives. He says, if I ever stick my nose in their yard again, he’ll hit it with a hammer. I be¬ lieve he will do it, too. Ruth won’t speak to me. I certainly am in Dutch all around. —William Lachman,’24 The North Star Staff takes pleasure in presenting “Rushing the Count” as the cleverest story entered in the Annual Short Story Contest. It was with some hesitation that the committee selected this story because of the style in which it is written, but it far surpasses anything else that was handed in as regards originality and ingenuity. After all the best authors use the style which best suits their theme. Other stories, deserving honorable mention, are those by Jeane Garret and Frances Hines. T hirty-nine FARE HE old order changeth yielding place to the new.” Everywhere in our modern world we see affairs-whether political, social, or educational—in a fluid state. Each morn¬ ing announces a new panacea for existing or imagined ills; each evening a glaring h ead¬ line heralds some new achievement or intro¬ duces us to some new investigation. Absorbed in the routine of our school world, we read the happenings in world or na¬ tional affairs, but are little influenced by them. Our little daily circle moves on smoothly and without break, until one day in the last half of our senior year in high school, we rea¬ lize that our world, too, must soon change— that high school is over and that we also are joining a period of transitions. We look ahead, trying with curious eyes to penetrate the in¬ visible future. We look around us seeking to solve the problem, but the lives of others offer us no final solution. We must each be the master of our own future and direct our own course. In meeting the questions which confront us as we finish our twelve years of training, we might compare ourselves wit h aviators about to make a flight into new and un¬ chanted areas. The aviator, if he is to achieve success, must be carefully prepared. Before he can start alone on a long flight into a new coun¬ try, he must understand all the intricacies of starting, guiding and stopping his plane; he must know how to meet unseen enemies — storm, wind, air pockets or cruel cold; hemust keep his head, when his plane is damaged, when he loses his course, or when for some reason he has to make a forced landing. Like the aviator all of us have spent years in preparation for the work before us. We have tried to learn how to undertake the tasks assigned to us, to be wisely self-direct¬ ing in discharging duties. We have teachers whose work it is to help prepare us to meet the obstacles, which are sure to confront us sometime, in our future flights toward happi¬ ness and success. Their guidance and our experience should have made us capable or enduring the storms of opposition, the bitter wind of criticism, theair pockets of discourage¬ ment or the cruel cold of failures. Through carefully thinking out problems here in school, planning our parties or liter¬ ary programs, meeting the test on the cinder Forty WELL path or the debate platform, we should have learned to keep our heads, so that when we are driven from our course, we may know which way to go and what to do. Even if for some reason—lack of funds or ill health, for instance—we are compelled to give up, or delay for a time, the purpose we have set out to achieve. We should not let these obstacles deter us from future efforts. We should not be satisfied to be " groundling” like those who have not had our training. What kind of flight shall we essay? The di¬ rection and distance covered will vary. Some may wish to go far and to see much; others, like the aviators who carry mail, may follow the same path day by day. All of us have taken part in the pleasures and activities of North outside our regular studies. So in the future our flights will not be without some dives, glides, tail-spins, and spirals to add zest ' to the matter-of-fact routine. Yet these pastimes should be so well performed that neither the performer nor others will be hurt by them. Our work, surely, will be careful¬ ly directed, if we have profited from our twelve years of experience. We, the class of June 1924, dislike to leave our training field—North High School. This has been the scene of our initial efforts; here under wise supervision, we have staged our trial flights; our debt is greater than we can pay. But whether our course leads us back or far distant, our hearts will ever cherish the memory of our Alma Mater. Old North! Dear North! Home of the Black and Gold. Your words, your deeds Firm in our hearts we hold. Our hopes, our faith In you will never fail, Friends, teachers, and comrades All hail to thee! All hail! —Bernice Calbetzor,’24 OOO y - dOO Man; “Hello, hello!

A., the Home and School League meet¬ ing, the Exchange Club and several other city organizations. The band has apparently dropped out of existence this spring, but it is only “appar¬ ently”, for the members are merely saving their breaths until next fall, when they will march on the football field in new uniforms playing the old school songs and new ones too. Every year the musical activities at North are improving. The thing that is most needed for further improvement now is the coop¬ eration and interest of more of the student body. With the help of all the students in school, who have real musical ability, next year North High School will be able to boast of the largest and best musical organizations in the citv. Miss Burns (during Latin Class): " Now, Ivan, if what you are saying is more import¬ ant than what I am talking about, I will stop the class until you are through.” [van Satow: “That’s all right. Miss Burn ' , Go right ahead with your class. It doesn’t bother me a bit.” Girls’ Basketball There is an increasing interest in girls’ athletics from year to year, this interest be¬ ing particularlv noticeable as it apphes to basketball. This year the girl ' s class teams held two series of inter-class games, which were the center of much enthusiasm. The first series resulted in a win for the lOA ' s, but this class was eliminated so early in the second series that the year ' s basketball laur¬ els niust go to the 12B’s who stood fairly high in the first tournament ard emerged as victors in the second. The second series of games caused espe¬ cial excitemement throughout the school be¬ cause of the close and hotly-contested scores. The final game was between the 12-B’s and 9-A’s. Tne game ended a tie score 3-3. A five minute overtime period resulted in the defeat of the 9-A’s, but in spite of their defeat we have to takeoff our hats to the “Freshies”, for they are a “peppy” bunch, needing only a little more experience to make ciiampion- ship material. The winning team was composed of :— Elizabeth Myers and Dorothy Chapman, for¬ wards. Lois Tichenor, center, Esther Bunts and Ethel Gerstenmaier, guards. The results of the series ere as follows: March 13 12B 12A 3-0 March 14 lOB lOA 4-2 March 18 9A 9B 9-0 March 19 llA IIB 4-1 March 20 12B llA 81 March 24 9A lOB 3-1 March 25 12B 9A 12 5 —Fern Warden,’25 E2 Congratulations, Freshmen! Though the seniors won in the Annual sub¬ scription campaign, which closed on May 2 we feel that it is appropriate to congratulate the class which took second place—the Fresh¬ men We generally think of the Freshmen as taking little part in affaiis of the school, but in this case the number of subscriptions turn¬ ed in by them was highest of any class. Much of their success was due to unusual school spirit on the part of the entire class and to the efforts of their salesman, who were real hustlers. Forty-three The North High Booster Club of 1923 and 1924 First Booster Club was or¬ ganized in the early part of 1923. Robert Van Hyning ’24 should receive the credit since the or¬ ganization was his idea. There were seven boys and seven girls, picked from the stu¬ dent body, in this first club. The members did not carry on any outstanding activities, but they did present North with a five foot banner, a thing much needed and appreciat¬ ed. The Jure 1923 graduation practically broke up this club, leaving only four mem¬ bers, Robert Van Hyning, August Macaluso, Carl Spessard, and Paul Fritsch. On October 12, 1923, the new and pres¬ ent Booster Club was organized. Eight new members were selected from the applications received: a faculty advisor, Mr. Houk, was selected; then the club was ready for work. The election of officers was held, resulting as follows: president, Paul Fritsch; vice president, August Macaluso: secretary, Karl Freund; treasurer, Carl Spessard. The first act of the new club was to sell rubber badges in black and gold to be worn at football games. Aside from this, reserv¬ ing students’ seats at ' games, decorating the bleachers and superintending the election of cheer leaders kept the members busy during that first semester. At the beginning of the second semester the club held election of officers and chose anew. At this time the officers elected were: president, Paul Fritsch; vice president. Urbane Hagenbaugh; secretary, Maynard Griffith; treasurer,Edwin Gar man. The new members were Lawrence Baker and Cleon Wells, elec¬ ted to replace two graduates of January 1924- " Friendship Day’’ was suggested and car¬ ried out by the members of the club. The day’s festivities opened with a short program in chapel. The Booster Club saw to it that friendship tags reached all the students and that everyone was told how to “get ac¬ quainted.” One-way halls were put into effect March 10, their success being almost immediate. At the same time “Keep to the Right” slogans were introduced for the stairways. Soon after¬ wards the idea of one-way stairs at 11:30 was carried out, this proving a great help to stu¬ dents in getting out of the building more quickly at lunch hour. The Booster Club attributes much ot its success to the ready cooperation of the stud¬ ent body as well as of the faculty. The mem¬ bers feel that they have gone far already toward accomplishing one of their chief aims —that of establishing a better relation be¬ tween the faculty and the student body. Censowe for the Year TheCensowe Club has had a very success¬ ful year, much of the success of which was due to the members of the cabinet who have proved themselves capable, hard-working and original in the planning of interesting pro¬ grams. For the World Fellowship program on No. vember 12, an outside speaker was secured. Miss Pillicer of Spain, who has been teaching in the Phillipine Islands. She had many in¬ teresting pictures to show and stories to tell of her experiences. At the Christmas meeting Mrs. George S. Dales made the central speech and several of the Censowe spoke on subjects appropriate to the Christmas season. The Bean Supper and Mock Election, held in February, was a time of much hilarity and jesting. Everyone wanted beans, beans and more beans. Many of the other programs were quite worth-while also. The Service committee has been particu¬ larly active this year, especially in cooperat¬ ing with the Booster Club on regulating traffic, in making arm-bands during the foot¬ ball season and presenting Narcissus bulbs at Easter to the old ladies at the Summit County Home. — Mildred Davis, ’24 Forty-five A meeting ot the Federated Clubs of North High was called to order on a Friday morn¬ ing late in May. The purpose of this meet¬ ing was to secure a summary of the year’s work and at the same time to provide an in¬ teresting program for the day. The follow¬ ing sketches, given by representatives of each of the clubs, made up the program. Miss History Club The History club, under the leadership of Miss Bowman, has very successfully accom¬ plished its purpose, which was that the pro¬ grams given should be of some historical val¬ ue to the members. The programs were very miscellaneous in character, consisting of pro¬ grams on music, avety interesfingdebafe, and two playlets given in the auditorium. Mem¬ bers of this club made a trip to the Cleveland Museum of art during the spring vacation. This year’s officers were: president, Harrison Fulton; vice president, Thomas While; secre¬ tary, Myrtle Porter; treasurer, Lucile Grimm. Just Kids A group of freshman boys, with the very characteristic name “Just Kids " ’for their club elected Robert Tarry as presidenc for the year. Their programs have been in the form of travelogues, a very interesting and instruc¬ tive form of study. These travelogues includ¬ ed Western United States and Alaska. Miss Plane acted as faculty adviser. Senor Spanish Club Thirty-three members were enrolled in the Spanish Club this year, under the supervi¬ sion of Senorita Weilbrenner. The following officers were elected: president, Nick Deyorio; vice presidente, Harriet Butters; secretaria, Arline Beachler. At each meeting the mem¬ bers responded to the roll call with Spanish proverbs. Many interesting programs were given on Spanish life and customs. Miss Northern Lights The Dramatic Club known as the North¬ ern Lights”, under the supervision of Miss Wolfe and Miss Rook, has had for its purpose during the year interpretations from Shake¬ speare’s works. The members have been work¬ ing on a play " Tillie the Mennonite Maid” to be presented late in the school ear. The officers of the club were: president, Margaret Elwarner; secretary, Homer Jones; treasurer, Basil Likens. Mr. Technical Club The Technical Club had for its officers for the year Chester Heppberger, president; Ned Patrick, vice president; Edgar Hughes, secre¬ tary; Emil Olhoeft, treasurer. The programs were on technical topics; such as, pattern¬ making and electricity. Speakers from outside of school furnished a few of the programs. Mr. Crawford and Mr. Boehringer were fac¬ ulty advisers. Miss Hand-Craft This club, under the supervision of Miss O’Harra, spent some very interesting and profitable hours during the year. Stuffed ani¬ mals of various descriptions were made by the girls of the club at their own expense and taken to the children’s hospital at Christmas time as gifts for the “kiddies.” At the meet¬ ings held after Christmas the girls have been Forty-six working on embroidered articles for them¬ selves. The club carried on its year’s work with Marjorie Dyke, as president, and Lena Boyd, as secretary. Mr. Radio Club Among the talks given by members of the Radio Club this vear were “Hints on the Con¬ struction of Radio Frequency” by Thomas Chittenden, “CoilsandCondensers,”by George Royer, “Crystal Set in Loose Coupler,” by Walter Tschumi, “Difficult Forms of Radio” by Edgar Atkinson and “Super-Heterodyne’’ by Roydon Whaley. The officers of this club for the year were: president, Richard Booth; vice president, Harold Schwarz; secretary, Arland Wells; faculty adviser, Mr. Wagner. Miss Art Club To promote an interest in art in our every¬ day life, to show art may be applied to our lives, and to encourage artistic talent are the purposes of the Art Club. The club this year was divided into two groups: one, under the supervision of Miss Gibson, studied and ap¬ plied methods of sketching; the other, under Mrs. Roberts, dividec’ its interest between the making of raffia and reed articles and work¬ ing on embroidered articles. The officers for the year were: Walter Featherstun, president; Lucetta Randall, vice president; secretary and treasurer, Nora Smith. Mr. Biology Club The Biology Club was added as a new member to our list in February. The club, or¬ ganized under the supervision of Miss Fisher, elected the following officers for the year: president, Sherman Horn; vice-president, Lloyd Atterholt; secretary, Roma Allison; as¬ sistant secretary, Dorothy Arndt. The club has two divisions, the bird and flower groups. They cooperate to furnish the programs. Letters have been sent by the members to other states and countries, inquiring about the signs of spring shown there. Spring hikes have been planned by the members to add interest and enthusiasm as well as to give real instruction in natnre study. Miss Hygiene Club The Hygiene Club this year was sponsored by Mrs. Bake, who says that there has been remarkable cooperation among its members. The idea which prompted the founding of this club was that school boys and girls can never learn too much about hygiene. With this idea in mind the programs have been largely talks on the care and functions of the organs of the human body. The officers were; president, Frances Patterson; vice president, Betty Davis; secretary, Marie Guerney. Freshman Clubs Since there were so many Freshman Clubs this year, and their programs were so varied, it seems best to print only the names of the officers in each room. In Room 102 there were two clubs. Officers of the 9B’s were: president, Marian Walsh, secretary, Florence Jones; of theQA’s: president, Marian Schaeffer; secretary, Mae Trout. In Room 121 the offi¬ cers were: president. Mabel Carl; secretary, Alice Gracey; in Room 120: president, Hugh Parson ; seceretary, Alfred Sladky; in Room 103: president, Elizabeth Hoffman; secretary, Mildred Jones; in Room 119: president. Ear¬ nest Pierce; secretary, Arthur Vance; in Room 106: president, James Savoia; secretary, Charles Schenk. —Myrtle Porter, Rose Crano’24 The Master Some meet it smiling, others with fear. Some meet it bravely, some with a tear. To some it comes like a thief in the night. Silently, cautiously, banishing light. Oft as the Queen bee, when summer is nigh. From the bud takes the honey and leaves it to die. Some it relieves of anguish and pain. To all it comes once but never again; No mortal has seen it but all hear its call, The summons of death, the master of all. Fame breasts not its power. Beauty loses her lure. Wealth shrinks in oblivion, naught can en¬ dure This power supreme we all feel its breath. The call of the Master, the summons of Death. Parker A.

Interest ran high be¬ cause a cup was to be presented to the wiri- nmg team and a banner to the winning sec¬ ond team. The members of the first team who played for the cup were, Grace Morse and Dorothy Barber, forwards; Florence Wilhelm, center; Lois Tichenor and Fern Wai den, guards. The girls were awarded a C, the Censowe letter. The members of the second team who won the banner were, Elizabeth Myers and Ethel Wilson, forwards; Dorothy Arndt, center; Emily Smith, Marjorie Dyke and Edna Fen¬ ton guards. These girls were given points to aoply on their next year’s letter. The teams were coached by Mrs. Pake, and games were refereed by Miss Kennedy and Miss Tucker. The scores for the first team were as fol- lows; January 28 North 12 West 16 February 8 North 13 East 26 February 13 North 14 South 9 February 26 North 7 South 9 March 7 l,.Kh 13 East 46 March 14 North 34 Central 11 March 18 North 10 West 18 The scores for ' the second team were as follows; January 28 North 15 West 10 February 8 North 22 East 16 March 17 North 17 East 10 March 24 North 18 West 16 — Fern Warden,’25 OCX «:= History of the Class of June, 1924 (Continued from page 23) places on the d«.,bating team, and tnis year the number has increased to five. Ten of our students have received scholarship letters; Donald Bishop, Myrtle Porter, Helene Bendell, Roma Allison, Elizabeth Armstrong and John Tullio have received letters all four years. Two of the buys have received the Varsity N for track and one for football. Luther Hos- field has his name engraved on tne track cup, as he was high-point man in the 1924 Inter¬ class track meet. Thelma Waite has served the school faith¬ fully all four years by her singing in the glee club and playing for the orchestra. Basil Likens, Elizabeth Armstrong, and Ivan Satow have brought honor to the school by winning first prizes in essay contests, thus bringing a beautiful flag and a number of books to the school. Our girls have supported Censowe, particularly Mrytle Porter, Edna Schrank, Esther Johnston, Thelma Waite, and Martha Witmer, and our boys have taken active part in Hi-Y. Altogether we feel that we have truly backed the school and that we have an envi¬ able record to our credit. ' Donald Bishop,’24 Why Boys Leave School The problem of keeping the young men of Akron from leaving our high schools before graduation is of great importance. To rem¬ edy this evil we put forth the following sug¬ gestions; 1. Elevators might be ' installed in all build¬ ings to avoid the necessity of climbing long flights of stairs. 2. Merry-go-rounds could be put in the gymnasiums so that boys could get the effect of moving without doing so. 3. Edison could invent a device to turn the pages of books so that pupils would not have to lift their hands. 4. Taxies could be hired to bring the poor tired boys to school in the mornings and take them home at nights. 5. Half-hour rest oeriods might be set a.side at various times during the day. 6. Moving pictures might be used instead of books to avoid the neoessiiy of carrying such a load around. 7. Conversation should be allowed at all times to afford amusement during tedious hours of study and recitation. 8. Teachers should be engaged merely to suggest novel means of entertainment. These suggestions, with others that might be derived from them, are given with the idea of keeping young men in high schools until they are entitled to graduate, or until they die of old age. —Clifford Springston,’25 Forty-nine CALENDAR FOR THE SECOND SEMESTER January 28. Jimmie Fiasco cer¬ tainly does make a good trainer. He is always on the run when ever he is needed. Maybe he is trainer for his brother. Miss Smetts distinguishes herself by break¬ ing all records on a kiddie car; Royden Whaley shocks the populace by his skill in manipulating a certain young lady’s galoshes; and several of the distinguished seniors suf¬ fer a cruel and watery death in a canvas lake during the presentation of “Lord Ullin’s Daughter.” February 4 Did you see that thrilling North-South game? Score 30-29 favor or North! Fern Warden almost had hysterics and all of us suffered nervous breakdowns during the ex¬ citement. February 11 After an absence of two weeks Gird wood Stinaff reappears with a misplaced eyebrow on his up¬ per lip. Probably his absence was due to the careful nurs¬ ing necessary to its growth. February 18 What an exciting week! The North-Central game—We lost, but how were we to know it? The mid year num¬ ber of the North Star— and Friend¬ ship Day! We learn that Norris Com¬ panion and Morse Bell have whole books of friends. We needed Wash¬ ington’s Birthday to rest up from all the thrills. February 25 After the January graduates have forgotten they ever weie high school students, and the class of June has forgotten it ever was Senior B ' s, comes the long delayed Senior party, Fifly March 3 Workmen begin to be in evidence. Freshly painted girls have been conspicuous arourd North for manv years but it has been a century — almost — since we have seen a freshly paint¬ ed stage. Nora Smith is heard to remark, “Oh! girls,I’mcrazy- about that good look¬ ing painter!” March 10 The girls of North High have the fever now and are all having their hair shingled. What are they trying to do? Why, they are making themselves more up-to-date. Among those who have had tneirs shingled are: Frances Pat¬ terson, Jeane Garrett, Anna Williams, Grace Morse, Marian Walsh and Zetta Roberts. March 17 The Freshmen broke into North High soci- sety! The green decorations for St. Patrick’ Day were most ap- propriate. Morse Bell, one of the fresh¬ man boys tried to Dreak the ice by taking one of the junior girls home but — did he suc¬ ceed? Then Mr. Kelly took an active part in the program and forgot the words to his song, and so supplied funny jokes. March 24 One of the most interesting talks that was given here this season was one given bv the Bell Telephone people. After they had explained their system of telephoning, they had girls who demonstrated their work. After this it is believed that possibly the students will be more courteous and of course they will. North High always thinks of the other persons, do they not? March 31 At last the long-looked-for spring has come at lea St for the pupils of North High believe it has,since Joe Fias¬ co, one of North’s Famous Boxers, stepped out in a new Spring overcoat and hat.

Bishop of the Akron Times spoke on “News Editing.” April 28 The North Star sales carrpaign opened Monday morning in a unique w ay. Chapel was called and several representatives and the faculty adviser gave short talks to each class. Clocks were put up in the auditorium onwhich the percent of each class was placed every noon by Johnnie Zimmerman. Dunng the middle of the week the Seniors and Freshies ran very close, at times the Freshies being ahead, but in the erd the Seniors won. The total number of subscrip¬ tions was 700.

Alibis are seldom heard from the Northerners, but in this case the two facts that Limric, stellar half-back and backbone of the Eskimo team, was on the bench with a broken ankle just a week before the first city series game and did not play the rest of the season, and that several of the regular linesmen were declared ineligible at ttie same time, were undoubtedly important elements in determining the city standing of North’s team. The high-light of the season was the crushing defeat of Lakewood with a 30-12 score at the Lakewood stadium on October 13. After that game the hilltoppers felt that they had avenged themselves for the 35-0 defeat handed them by Lakewood in 1923. Among those who received individual hon¬ ors during the season were: Wells, who filled Limric’s shoes admirably after the latter’s in¬ jury and was named half-back on the second all-city team; Nelson, veteran end, received a place on the first all-city team; Stiles, cap. tain of the past year’s eleven, who was accord¬ ed a position of tackle on the second all-city team; Limric who, because of his brilliant playing, could not be ignored, and, because of the fact that he was unable to play in any city series game, could not be placed on either of the all-city teams, was, therefore, given the berth of honorary halfback. With an eye to future glory it must be re¬ membered that many members of the team will be back next season with experience which should prove invaluable. Among them are several letter men, including Limric (captain elect). Baker, Bevington, McCaslin and Rice.

Led by their fighting captain, Mike Limric, the Black and Gold quintet completed the season with an| average of 750 in the city series — an average higher than that of any other city varsity team. They battled their way to victory through three city series games, only to drop the fourth game to Cen¬ tral, which m.eant that North had to divide the city honors with South High. In the tournament held at Goodyear Gym on February 28 and 29, the Eskimos won from East and the highly touted Canton Mc¬ Kinley crew, but were defeated in the finals by Barberton, who won from them earlier in the season also. Incidentally Barberton and Central were the only teams to defeat North during the season. Among the high class teams which North met and defeated were: Lorain, who won the title of the “Little Big Seven,” Akron East, who beat Akron Central in the city series; Cleveh nd Heights, who forfeited their game to North when it was found that one of their players was ineligible. Wadsworth, Shaker Heights and Hudson all fell easy victims to the Northern warriors. The Northerners received the lion’s share of personal honors among the teams. Nelson was named all-city guard; Limric was placed on the same mythical team as forward, be¬ sides being high scorer of the city; Vernotzy received the center position; Limric’srunning- mate, Barnes, was accredited with being the best floor man in the city, but, a.-- a forwards job is primarily to make points, he was not mentioned on the all-city team. The only letter man who will be back for all of next season is Barnes, captain-elect, a three year veteran. There are several subs however who have shown their wares in some of the games and seem to be promising mate- lial Limric will be eligible until next Janu¬ ary, but it is doubtful whether he will take much part in basketball. The following is a summary of the season’s games and scores: North 26 Akron East 14 North 32 Shaker Heights 7 North 2 Cleveland Heights 0 North 29 Lorain 27 North 22 Barberton 25 North 24 Wadswor h 16 North 25 West 22 North 30 South 29 North 39 Cuyahoga Falls 24 North 30 Central 32 North 13 Fast 11 North 20 Ca ton McKinleyl5 North 16 Barberton 23 No th 24 Obernn 16 North 26 Hudson 25 On next year’s schedule several new teams may appear. Among these are Alliance,Wood- ward Tech of Toledo, Canton McKinley and Lakewood. These together with Cleveland Heights, Loiain, Barberton, the city teams, the tournament and possibly two other teams, ought to make an interesting schedule. —Joseph Zisscn,’25 Read your oven North Star Fifty-seven Track Summary for 1924 In the North High interclass track meet, held on April 26, the senior athletes buried the underclassmen under an avalanche of points. By winning six first, seven second, six third and several fourth places, along with the relay race, they were able to garner 72 points. The juniors were the closest com¬ petitors with 28 points, while the sophomores and freshmen trailed with 23 an d 8 respect¬ ively. Hosfield, ’24, track captain for the season, won all the points allowed an entry by taking four firsts, besides being a member of the winning relay team. His name, there¬ fore, will be engraved on the track cup pur¬ chased by former coach Wagner. Previous to this only two track men have won this honor. The inter-class meet uncovered other mater¬ ial which shows promise also. Middleton, a Sophomore miler, is showing class and should develop into an unusually good man during the season. Griffith, a junior, although only a novice at pole vaulting, is jumping almost 10 feet, which is considered a good height especially considering the condition of the available jumping places and the time of year Cleon Wells, White, Hosfield and Conley gained some experience, as well as honor, when they took fifth place in a medley relay at Columbus on April 19. Many schools of high caliber were represented in this race; such as Toledo Scott and Waite, Lakewood and Columbus South. The most successful meet of the season so far was the one held at Lakewood Oi. May 3, where the Northern athletes won first place in the mile relay, second in the sprint medley and fourth in the 880relay. A handsmoe silver cup and eight medals testified to the suc¬ cess of the occasion. In a triangular meet, staged at North High’s field on May 10, West High emerged an easy winner with 82| points over North’s 36 and South’s 11 . Marty of West carried off the personal honors with four first places. The Northerners, as a whole, did not come up to their usual standard. Wnite, however, made his best time in the quarter, winning a first place with time 56.5. Baker won the discus throw with 103ft. lin. Hosfield took second place in the 220 yard dash and Limric m the broad jump. These, with places won by Hos¬ field and White in the 100 yd. dash, constituted North’s score. —Joseph Zissen,’25 Debate News Debating at North has been given due at¬ tention this year. Each of the Hygiene classes held a debate on the question: Resolved, that life in a community is better than private home life. In one class the affirmative side won the decision; in another the negative team was successful. Mr Kelly’s three lOA English classes engaged in a series of dis¬ cussions on the Philippine question, although no formal debate was held. The real interest of the debating season, however, centered around the Debate club, which, at its first meeting held early last October, elected Donald Bishop president. Many questions were taken up for discus¬ sion during the first semester. In February members of the club began to gather facts on the Philippine question. In April a tri angular debate was arranged between Ak¬ ron North, Cuyahoga Falls and Bedford on the question: Resolved, that the Philippines should be given immediate and absolute in¬ dependence. On May 1 the members of both teams to represent North High were selected; Edna Schrank, Budd Van Kirk, Donald Bishop, and Charles Walker (alternate) composing the affirmative team and Jeane Garrett, Basil Likens, Luther Hosfield, and Robert Long- aker (alternate) the negative. On Friday May 9, the affirmative team de¬ fended the argument at home against the Bed¬ ford negative team, while the negative team went to Cuyahoga Falls to argue against their affirmative. The debate resulted in two victories for Cuyahoga Falls, one victory and one loss for North and two losses for Bed¬ ford. In the debate held at North the student body showed good sportsmanship toward Bedford giving them considerate attention and enthusiastic applause. The decision of judges Flickinger, Zook, and Marting was unanimous in favor of North. At Cuyahoga Falls North’s negative team lost a two-to-one decision. Altogether we have had a fairly successful debating season, though w e have room for improvement in scoring next year. Probably two or more inter-school debates will be sched¬ uled for that time and the aim of the Debate club will be to come through undefeated. —Budd Van Kirk,’24 Fifty-nine Shades of the Indians!

V ell, we should say so! On Saturday our boys journeyed to Lake- wood where they won first place in the mile relay, sec¬ ond in the sprint medley and fifth in the half mile relay. A silver trophy cup was awarded to North, together with five gold medals and five silver medals. ) May 26 The Senior A’s are looking forward to a party given by the 12B’s on May 29th. We hope that this will not be delayed as the former Sen ior parties have been. With Paul Fritsch and Augie as decorators we expect to see a won¬ derful place such as the “Far East” as in Cleveland. June 2 Don’t you wish you were a Senior and go¬ ing to graduate in another week? They get out of school a week early to prepare them¬ selves for the one great event in their lives. And all they do is come back and loaf around the halls, if they do not have to take any ex¬ ams; and of course they don’t! June 9 At last the fatal day has arrived. Do they all graduate and does every one pass? That is the question which only the powers are able to answer. Sixty
