Since, in the future, all dances and
other social functions are to be held
in the gym, the Parent-Teachers As-
sociation deemed it wise and necessary
to decorate the barren throne of King
Basketball for the more festive amuse-
ments. All who were present at the
Inter-Club Dance were certainly sur-
prised and delighted at the tasteful
novelties introduced at that entertain-
ment, all of which were arranged and
paid for by our parents. -But that
isn't all, we may expect other surprises

LOOK IVIE OVER!
Thus far the student body has re-
sponded readily to the call of the staff
for material, but our next issue is the
Annual, which will need double support
in order that we might come out "over
the top" in its publication. It is a ne-
cessity that must ,be realized right now.
Each and every student of Northeast
is responsible for the kind of paper that
is edited, since without students there
could not possibly be such a thing ex-
isting as a school magazine.
You have just one month's time in
which to work and talk for ads, listen
with two wide open ears to the com-
ical remarks that are daily being
spoken in your classes, and not only
register them in your minds, but jot
sight, and to the Seniors we plead that
you commence saving your "sixpence"
in order that you might have your pic-
ture in the Annual with the rest -of the
class of 1922.
Let's make this publication the
largest and best that has ever been
issued at Northeast High School.
"With what you have, and where you
are," will you do it?
Do clouds continually hide the stars
of night from you? Not the atmos-
pherical clouds of the heavens, but
the clouds of artificial city obstruc-
tion. It is truly amazing to see how
little these wonders of the sky are ap-
preciated in a big city. On clear,
beautiful nights, people so seldom no-
tice or remark about the stars, they
care not where the Big Dipper is,-or
what some- unusually brilliant star is
called. Some can only see the bright
lights of the amusement halls, never
the pure rays of the stars.
And so it is regarding many things
in life-the old story of a lack of ap-
preciation for the good and beautifull
Living in the midst of so many splen-
did things we should all feel an active
appreciation for them, and seek to
leave something noble on our page in
life. But if we possess not the vir-
tues capable of creating anything
great or individual, it is a comfort to
know that one's life will have been
worth while- if he has felt a true ap-
preciation for great and pure things.
This feeling is manifested in an earn-
est desire for and effort to obtain a
knowledge and understanding of fine

literature, art, music, science, etc.,
and an everlasting love and admiration
for the enchantments of nature, which
is, as Woodberry says, "The familiar
presence of the infinite." Surely the
least we can do is to feel an honest
appreciation of the wonders of this
nature about us, and a reverence for
high objects, pure thoughts and noble
Too often we see only the bright
lights of artificiality, and too seldom
the pure, shining stars of life! Are
you interested in those stars, and do
you seek to understand them better?

STUDENT AID. I
When Shakespeare wrote "Some are
born great, some achieve greatness,
and some have greatness -thrust upon
'em,".he knew that all men were not
equal as to position in life. If we
should rewrite the above version so
that it will read: "Some are born rich,
some acquire riches, and some have
riches thrust upon 'em," we should
have a better distinguishing inequality
among men. Riches, or rather money,
plays an important part in the progress
of man, for if parents lack sufficient
funds with which to educate their
children, who suffers? Not the mother
or father, but the child. Who is held
back on the race track of life? Again,
the child. Many times a child is sent
out into the world to work, not be-
cause the father needs fthe extra
money which the child earns, but be-
cause the father has not enough
money to provide for a further educa-
We have such cases in Kansas City,
where the boy or girl works, not be-
cause his earnings are needed at home,
but because the high school education
costs more than the father can pay,
for we must remember that if we in-
clude board and clothing, as well as
small incidentals, it costs between five
and six hundred dollars a year to Send
a child through high school.
An incident of this kind happened at
the beginning of the term in a down-
town book store. A girl, just begin-
ning her high school course, and her
mother were buying books. The dress
of both indicated that money was not
plentiful in their family. After the
mother had priced several needed
books she sighed and said, "I don't see
where we're going to get all the money
to pay for these books, but you want
to go on to school so I guess we'll
have to secure the money some place."
It is for families in similar condi-
tions that some sort of aid ought to be
provided, so that they may send their
children to high school. A system
could be adopted by which these
children would be furnished with
books, free of charge. Many of the
more fortunate students have books
which they would not sell because they
value the book more than the money
which they would receive for them.
But, on the other hand, they would
gladly lend their books to the less
fortunate, provided that the books
would be returned in a good condition.
Afternoon jobs could also be provided
for them, so that their high school ca-
reer would be made a pleasure, and
not a burden.
Many of you have heard of similar
conditions existing at Northeast High
School. So why not begin work at
home, to provide sufficient resources
for such demands?

A Lunch Check's Soliloquy'
Howdy folks !-What's that? You
want an introduction? Why, every-
one knows meg I'm a five-cent lunch
check! And I'm quite popular, I am.
Inst think how long people wait in
line to get me. Why sometimes they
even push ahead of others to be the
first to reach me! CBut of course I
know you are too altruistic to do a
thing like thatj
Sometimes I even cause trouble.
Once when I was performing gym-
nastics on the edge of a desk, by the
aid of my dexterous owner. much to
the delight of my interested audience,
some stern-eyed person, CI think they
call her "teacher"j frowned at me and
demanded that I be put away. I no-
ticed that everyone immediately be-
came absorbed with his books, I
wonder why? So I had to forego my
exercise and be thrust into a dark
pocket once more. pVVhy, anyone
ought to know that my performance
of trying to stand on my head on the
top of a pencil is more interesting than
listening to "amo, amari, amarbi, etc."
But that just shows how unapprecia-
tive some people are!
But despite- my popularity, I'm
rather democratic. Yes, indeed, I con-
descend to associate with pennies and
three-cent checks. But I change own-
ers quite often. Sometimes I'm mixed
up with a knife and matches and rub-
ber bandsg but still, that isn't so bad
as being squeezed in a book with a
powder puff right next to the Battle
of Agincourt, or perhaps perched on
top of the Uhypotonuse of A2-I-B2--1
C2." CFor reference consult Mr. Al G.
Once I was shoved into a pocket
that had a hole in it. How glad I was
to slide through it and skip down the
street awhile in the sunlight! But
then when I stopped on the parkway
and hid under a maple leaf, it wasn't
so nice. because no one saw me for a
long time. There were some rude

when a too-eager boy mercilessly

calories task your physiology teacherj,
and-so many other dishes, too mani-
fold to enumeratej.
But finally, I was rescued by some
kind person who proudly passed me
around to all his friends to verify the
statement of his lucky find.
Once more I went through the rou-
tine of lying in a pocket for a long
interval, then being taken out and
jingled, dropped on the floor, for
which my careless owner was repri-
manded by that same austere person
Cisn't it aggravating that they always
notice everything?j, then being rebel-
liously jammed into that dark pocket
again until the ringing of a bell, then
being snatched out again and carried
with oh, such speed, as my owner reck-
lessly dashed down several flights of
stairs, then being knocked out of his
hand by another speeding person, be-
ing tramped over by a mad mob of
rushing students Qthat bell always
causes such ,haste and excitementj,
and finally being rescued and soon vig-
orously slammed across a table for
the same thing-food!
You know it is strange, that al-
though everyone is eager to get me,
they are even more anxious to get rid
of me, but I am irresistible. They al-
ways come back the next day.
Yesterday, some little demure miss
daintly passed me on for some candy,
today some sturdy boy flung me across
the counter for chili, tomorrow--who
will have me, for what shall I be used?
I wonder. But then, such is the life of
a five-cent check!
After Twelve, Beware.
Have you a friend you know real well,
Who hates to hear a whistle blow,
Who never hears the midnight bell
Because he knows it's time to go?
At least he Cl2ll1US lle hears 110 Sgund,
To tell him that he now must go,
He always tries to stay around
And rave an extra hour or so
But just remind him there's a law
Originated by your ma:
Out after twelve you cannot stay,
For motherls rule you must obey.
And then remind him of your pa,
Who has a law lots worse than ma's,
VVho wears a shoe size number ten,
And has the force of twenty men.

Tote of Apology
Due to a regrettable error the name
of the author of "The Triumph of
Heredity" was omitted in the last
Nor'easter. VVe wish to apologize to
Miss Laurene Thompson, who is the
author of that excellent story.
A sultry September afternoon,
crowded city streets seething with
tired, home-bound business folks--
and one wee child, all alone. Two
chubby little arms reached upward,
clutching, at a passing dress, two big
brown eyes sought the owner's face
appealingly, but the little arms were
brushed off and the figure swept on.
Shoved about, pushed aside and bc-
wildered, the little one stumbled on,
calling in quaint, childish accents, "Fin
a kinker-ady to tate a ma home!
Absorbed in their own affairs, no one
heeded. But out of the hurrying
crowd came Celia Burt.
Celia was lonesome. 'fAh,,' she
sighed. "Ts there no one to care, no
one to really call my own?" For the
last three years her life had been only
as a tool in the cosmopolitan world.
Before, her love for ,lohn had hiddifn
her loneliness-but the cruel war took
Dlohn. She continued her weary way
in and out among the people. Sud-
denly she sturnbled, and looking down.
beheld a wee bit of blue gingham and
a mass of luscious. dark brown curls.
Slowly the big frightened eyes met
hers, and once more the child pleaded,
"pin a kinker-ady to tate a ma hom!"
With a little gasp, Celia bent down
and lifted the child into her arms. "You
darlingln she breathed irgto the tossled
curls. A look of joy came to the tiny
face and her arms clung tighter as she
repeated again and again, "Fin a kin-
ker-ady to take a ma home." Celia
moved aside, glancing inquiringly
about her as she said, But dearie,
where is your mother?
"Fin a kinker-ady to tate a ma
homll' was the only reply.
"VVhat's that?" laughed Celia.
"You dear thing, T can't understand
you." She looked anxiously about her
for some sign of friend or parent, but
no one noticed t-hem. 'CVVell,',' she
said, "VVe'll have to find someone to
look after you l" The little girl clapped
her hands and cried, 'fYes! Fin a kin-
ker-ady to tate a ma homli'
"What does the darling mean.
thought Celia as she hurried to the
corner fpoliceman with her precious
bundle. He hailed a passing officer
who was used to interpreting many
street dialects and together they fig-
ured out what the child was saying.
The policeman held her on his knee
in a nearby drug store and repeated
thoughtfully, "'Find a kind lady to
take me home'-that's it, all right I" he
added as she encouraged excitedly.
"Well, Little One," he continued kind-
ly, "VVhere do you live?" She slid
from his lap and laughed something in
Ttalian as she skipped out of the door.
Celia, who had been standing with
tightly-clasped hands as she watched
the fascinating Little Une, rapturous-
ly exclaimed. dVVhat wonderful eyes!
Vlihat beautiful hair! Sheis thoroughly
adorable!" But the policeman had
started to follow, and excitedly the
child led them down an alley to her
home. one room in the damp basement
of a filthy tenement house. There in
the chilly darkness of that wretched

room they read the pitiful story. The
mother was quite dead, but in her hand
was a hastily written message:
"In my dying helplessness I have
sent my darling Diana to find a kind
lady who will take her home and be
good to her. I pray that she is safe.
Diana is not born of a common woman
-I am a noblewoman by blood-
daughter of wealthy citizens of Ca-
tania, Italy. I eloped with an Amer-
ican, who deserted me after we came
here. I have tried-my God, how I
have tried! I only hope Diana may
not know the anguish of her mother's
heart.. Keep her-someone-love herf'
That was all. Celia's heart throbbed
and she struggled for self-control.
"Diana !" she murmured, "Dian.a!" For
several seconds she sat with the little
orphan clasped tightly in her arms,
deeply absorbed in thought. Then,
with a little catch in her breath, she
cried, "My Diana !" In an instant she
was standing before the officer, who
had been making investigations. "Un-
der the circumstances-" she began,
her face- all aglow, "I-it-is apparent
she has no one to claim her-no one
but me !" she finished with enthusiasm.
A few words passed between them, a
contract written and signed, and Celia
found herself rushing once more down
the busy street-but not alone!
Light footsteps in the corrider, a
door thrust open, a light flashed on
and a tiny form placed on the floor.
Celia spread her arms, her glance en-
veloping the now transformed apart-
ment. '!Our home !" she exclaimed,
and then, taking Diana's chubby face
between her hands, laughed happily.
"My own! My very, very own !"
All that evening she lived in a world
of hope and love, dreaming of the fu-
ture. Diana was radiant with content
and followed Celia around with as
much devotion and satisfaction as
though she had lived there always, At
last Celia tucked her in bed and bend-
ing over her whispered a grateful
prayer. Life seemed suddenly very
A bell Yallg- Celia hurried eagerly
to the front door to find Mr. and Mrs.
Harland, a college friend and her hus-
band. "My dear!" exclaimed Adele,
"how radiant you look tonight."
"Perhaps she's in love !" laughed her
husband as they removed their wraps.
"I ,am !" burs-'t Celia. "She's the
dearest bit of humanity one ever
"VVho? Wliat do you mean?" asked
"Shh-! Come see-" was the an-
Diana, who had not yet fallen
asleep, smiled up into three faces, each
with a different expression. There
was the familiar one filled with proud
delight and love, that of the man, with
admiration and longing, and the other
had a strange look of surprise, adora-
tion, and jealous despair-the despair
that comes to one who yearns daily
for that which she cannot have. This,
little Diana did not understand but
reached up her tiny arms to be taken
Thirty minutes later Celia closed the
bedroom door gently and turned
sweetly to Adele, "Don't you just love
her? I'm-why, what's the matter?"
For Adele was leaning heavily against
the mantle, her head buried in her
arms. "I!t's the child!" she sobbed.
"Love her, I idolize every inch of the
little cherub and, oh, Celia, I want
her!" There was a brief silence dur-
ing which Celia's heart stood still.
Then like a knife these words pierced
her very soul "Celia !" cried Adele, her
eyes growing big, "Let me have Di-
ana !" Another dreadful silence, then
Adele burst forth in a torrent of in-
coherent words. "Celia, I have
yearned for a darling of my own. Al-
ways longing, hoping-oh, you do not
know how I have waited, hoping that
some day I would find the little one
of my dreams!" She turned pointing
silently to the bedroom door. "My
Little One !" muttered Celia, sinking
into a chair, vaguely realizing that
Adele was on the floor beside her,

was pacing the floor troubled and em-
"Celia, dear," began Adele with more
control as she held Celia's hands and
looked pleadingly up into the staring
eyes and white face, "I know you love
Diana, I know you want her, but do
you realize that Diana should have
advantages in life that you would be
unable to give to her? I-Iave you
thought of the expense?" Celia shut
her eyes tightly. "I have a home

could spend my every moment for her
interests and development. Who would
look after her during your business
hours?" She paused but Celia made
no effort to speak. "And," she con-
tinued. rising. "Diana should have a
Daddy!" Celia winced. "Forgive me,
dear," said Adele, remembering john.
"You would see her very often and
have her love just the same. It would
not be- as if she were taken away.
Celia-for-you shall be with her
often." Celia gasped. "Shall be," the
words frightened her. Was it possible
:hat she was to be forced to give up
the "Little One?" Celia thought
deeply during the long moments of
silence. She struggled with self.
"No !" she thought, "I'll not give her
up! She is mine! Mine! by all rea-
sonable- rights. I need her more than
Adele does. I can provide for her, I
will not give up Dianaf' But Celia felt
the force not of Adele's words, but the
force of that which is right and just,
the Supreme Power, creeping over her.
Finally she saw her helplessness and
realized the truth of Adele's state-
ments. Slowly she raised her head
and looked steadily into the anxious
eyes of Mr. and Mrs. Harland. Her
own face was a study in deep emo-
tions. Every feature wag beautiful
and sadly radiant, her blue-gray eyes
were tearless, but their expression of
sweet sadness became almost painful
as she opened her mouth and said with
effort, "You may come for Diana--
tomorrowf' She bowed her head, and
something about the way she did it
see-med to say, "go now, please."
Adele was just realizing what Diana
ment to Celia and started to rush to
her in apology and gratitude. Mr.
Harland caught her back and shaking
his head formed these words with his
lips, "Not now, come." Quietly but
happily they left the room.
For several moments Celia sat in
pathetic silence, unable to move, then
suddenly with a low wail she jumped
up and ran to the "Little One's" bed-
side. Encircling her arms about her
and laying a tear stained cheek against
the tiny one-, Celia murmured, "Diana,
my darling! my own-my very, very
own-H Then, with a little choke, she
added, "just for tonight."

He loved his high school work as
much as he detested and hated his

enough education to make him capable
of holding a good position while he
studied journalismpin a night school.
He hoped that the experience he was

Last night he had written a poem,
easily and ingeniously. It was the
best he had ever written, for his
mother had interrupted him while he
was writingfeverishly -on the best
part of his work, and her interruption
had caused him to review it, correct
some mistakes, and improve it im-
measurably. The reflections of his
calmer mind had matured some of the
hasty expressions that had flowed
from ,his animated pen.
His pen was always active. During
the day he conceived and expressed at
least one deep thought or original
joke. Today he was going to debate,
but it wasn't necessary for him to
write out what he would say, he had
mentally organized his material and he
would easily find words to express his
argument when the time came.
And he did! His associates declared
it to be the best debate given before
their literary society that year.
He had good reasons to be happy
that day, for he had written a satis-
factory poem the night before and
had talked intimately with his mother
and thus partly oiled their troubled -do-
mestic sea. And he had argued a suc-
cessful debate, had selected and or-
ganized material for his paper, and the
prospects of the next issue looked
bright. But he felt depressed, for his

him on that day of daysg and he didn't

He thoughtfully descended the tene-

his foolish thoughts and proceeded to
the corner grocery. As he bought the
bread, he saw a man shuffle unsteadily
past the store window.

ried out to help him home.

his father demanded of him, "Is the old

"Yes," he answered him as he helped

As We Consider
Mr. Phillips' English Literature
classes have just completed a most
interesting study of Chaucer's "Can-
terbury Tales," and our coach, as we
frequently call him, thought it would
be a grand finale to have each student
write a personal letter to Chaucer giv-
ing his opinion of that elegant writer.
One student in the fourth hour class
was bravesenough to try, and I am
sure you will later agree that she suc-
ceeded, in writing a letter to Chaucer
in his "own blue-China English" as
our coach describes it, which all
Chaucerian, students declare to be
most difficult to interpret.
To give you the benefit of this un-
usual letter, we have been given per-
mission to print it, and hope that you
readers will enjoy it just as much as
those who have heard it read aloud.

The Haunted House in Hoo-doo Hollow
About two miles from the town of
Glump Ridge, Ihlissouri, there may be
found, even today, a small, one room,
weather-beaten house tucked away
beneath a hanging boulder in what is
known as Hoo-doo Hollow. For many
years the respectable citizens of
Glump Ridge had shunned the region
of Hoo-doo Hollow as though it were
the harbor of some terrible plague.
Even the small boys knew the entire
history of the house in the Hollow, and
anyone who ventured into the house
was commonly believed to be "hoo-
dooedf' It seems that two men,
strangers to the people of Glump
Ridge, had built and occupied the
shanty. These men had never shown
the slightest inclination toward be-
coming acquainted with the town peo-
ple. One night the two strangers had
galloped away on horseback, leaving
a trail of blood in the hollow. Some
of the people of Glump Ridge had
found, several days later, the body of a
child in the shanty. The body was
badly mutilated and blood was freely
distributedabout the house. The body
was buried and from that time, the
ghost of a child was generally known
to inhabit Hoo-doo Hollow.
It was on a june night in the year
of 1920 that two adventuresome boys,
John and Sam, went to the haunted
house on a dare, to discover the ghost.
Armed with rifles, they arrived before
dark and proceeded to explore the
house from garret to cellar. The gar-
ret contained some empty, broken bot-
tles, a few old newspapers, some bed-
ding, and a quantity of cob-webs. The
one room of the shanty contained one
window, one door, a few pieces of
furniture and a ladder to the attic. A
hole in one corner of the floor gave
access to a cave, dugout to serve as a
cellar. As the cave was very dark,
the boys gave it a hasty glance and
returned to the cabinis one room.
"Let's fix our bed in this corner,"
"I think we'd better sit up tonight,"
replied Sam. "Of course, I'm not
afraid, or anything like that, but how
could we see the ghost if we were
john had no answer to this, so the
boys sat down on the doorstep. Dark-
ness descended and the silence was un-
broken, save by the chirping of the
crickets and the twittering of the
birds. Time passed and greater quiet
descended. John stirred slightly, as if
about to rise, when a low, wailing sob
broke the silence. Sam clutched Iohn's
knee and together they listened, while
"goose-flesh" crept out on their sun--
burned arms. The sobbing grew
louder and seemed to come from the
room from behind them, painfully they
turned their heads and saw at the top
of the ladder leading to the attic, the
white form of a child. The apparition
held a candle in its hand, and before
the boys could withdraw their eyes,
the ghost began to descend the ladder.
Now our two brave heroes could see
blood dribbling over the child's white
garment. Nearer and nearer came the
figure and Iohn, the braver of the two
dventurers felt for his box of
21 '- v '
matches. Instantly the figure was
"Pooh! we imagined it,', said John.

when he could speak, and he advanced
toward the spot where the ghost had
been. There on the floor was a pool
of blood! Then from the doorway
came a'flood of light and the appari-
tion appeared again, moaning and drip-
ping blood. And in the light that sur-
rounded it the boys could see that the
figure was headlessf The moaning
rose to a wail and the words, "I want
my headi' rang through the house.
Each wall echoed the horrible cry and
every corner seemed to shelter mov-
ing, creeping spirits. The ghost glided
forward and as it did so, its white and
crimson draperies caught against a
table. The garments were pulled aside
and our quaking bravers saw a man's
foot protrude from beneath the lifted
john and Sam rushed forward, and
the ghost, turning to flee stumbled and
fell. Instantly our heroes were upon
the prostrate figure. They tore off
the draperies and brought to view
the form of an old, dwarfish man.
He snarled and struggled, but the
boys held fast to him and marched
him away at the point of their guns.
With marvelous courage, now that
they were dealing with flesh and blood,
John and Sam hurried their prisoner
to the sheriff's home, where they
pounded loudly upon the door.
A cross-examination of the prisoner
gave the sheriff no information, so he
immediately .organized a posse and
hastened to raid the haunted house of
Hoo-doo Hollow. Six men, fleeing in
every direction, were captured and the
posse found in an adjacent room of
the cave, below the house, quantities
of illicit liquor. The liquor was de-
stroyed and the captives were sent to
prison, convicted of bootlegging.
Today, the haunted house is simply
a forlorn, deserted little cabin. The
mystery concerning it is dispelled,
thanks to the unparalleled brave-ry of
Sam and john, who enjoy to this day
a fine reputation for bravery.
The Hillsboro Mystery

"Now, Peg, do you really consider
it better than those Conan Doyle- stor-

"Well, maybe it wasn't as gripping

fellow solved the mystery of the
haunted church and caught the bank
robbers was wonderful. W3S11,t Char-

of the young man who discovered the
robber's den under the church and the

few minutes he had heard the story

had finished, for Peggy did all the
talking, as usual, Virginia being a very

the people of the town were puzzled
by a curious noise every night. It
seemed to be the pounding of a main-
moth hammer. Many nights I lay
awake, my body tense, nearly terrified
out of my wits as the thump, thump,
thump of that hammer reverberated
through the still night. No one seemed
able to detect the working place of the
hammer. The noise often sounded
muffled, as if it wasgfrom under
ground. Many times strange men,
who, I was told, were government
men, came to Hillsboro. These al-
ways created much excitement among
the village people, for, as long
as they were in Hillsboro, the pound-
ing of the hammer was not heard. Yet
these men always left after a few days,
without having solved the fmystery,
and immediately after their departure

society and were rather wealthy. Dr.
Hinckle' had once been the foremost
physician in Montgomery county, but
he had now retired, and Dr. King, a
middle-aged man, who was known as
an old friend of the Hincklefamily,
had taken up Dr. Hinckle's practice.
Hillsboro society had not accepted him
as kindly as Mrs. Hinckle expected,
probably because she early let people
see her eagerness for Dr. King and
her daughter Alice to be together.
"I played over at the Hinckle's house
often. Wandering through the spa-
cious home afforded me a great pas-
time. I loved Miss Alice, but I soon
began to hate Dr. King, who made his
home with the Hinckles.
"One day, when I was playing in
their library, I pulled the divan from
the wall in search of a lost ball. There.
to my amazement, I found a little door
just large enough for a body to P2155
through. Child-like, I opened it. FYO111
this door a narrow stairway led down
and down. Rays of a faint light flick-
ered.up to where I stood. Although I
was just a little fellow, I knew that the
Hinckle house was not known to have

so, full of curiosity, I thrust my head
through the door. At that instant
Vliss Alice rushed into the roomg her
face was ghastly as she snatched me
from that door. She scolded me se-
verely and told me to go home. As l
left I heard Dr. King, in a menacing
tone, upbraiding Miss Alice for -being
careless. She was sobbing. This near-
ly broke my heart and from that day .I
considered Dr. King a villain.
"It was some time later that the
Hinckles very suddenly announced that
they were leaving Hillsboro. Miss
.Xlice remained for a time with a lady
friend. The night preceding that of
her departure. she took brother john
into her confidence, telling him that
her mother wished her to marry Dr.
King before she left Hillsboro, and
had practically left her to his mercyg

answer, and she felt forced to say yesp

take Alice to the station. He had not
been at the house long until Dr. King
walked unannounced into the room
where he was waiting for Alice.
" 'How-do-you-do, Dr. King? Wliat
do you want?' john pointedly asked
'HI am looking for Miss Alice, if
it is any of your business, sir.' With
these words he started past john.
" 'Well, I'll make it my business, sir!
You will have to encounter this if you
attempt to enter that door.' John
then revealed his revolver. He had
come prepared for trouble.

The scene is in a cozy lounging
room of the Bachelor's Lure, a haven
for self-satisfied male creatures. As
we enter the room, clouded with to-
bacco smoke, our curiosity is aroused
by the domestic appearance of those
present. One and all are drawn close
around a man and a wolf-like dog.
The appearance of the biped de-
mands no special mention, since he is
an ordinary specimen of his genus,
but the quadruped, dozing at his feet,
commands our undivided attention. He-
is massive of frame, muscular of thigh
and shoulder, and the symmetry of toti
corporis is par excellence. Upon closer
observation we perceive that the ani-
mal's hazel-brown hide is perforated
with ugly scars of past fights. At this
point our inquisitive ears pick up the

One morning, with a biting temper-

which were baited for wolf. On these
trips Lobo was staked outside the
cabin door, for no wild animals will
bother traps scented by a domestic dog.
My luck wasn't laudible that morning.
The, catch consisted of one lean wolf
and several worthless varmints. There
remained one trap to investigate, of

the trap were clutching one of his hind
legs. Behind him trailed a log, to
which was fastened the trap. Although
this impeded his progress somewhat, he
bore down upon me with surprising
velocity.. Danger of being overtaken
was my last thought, but when a good-
ly distance in the lead I turned my head
to see my pursuer. My foot caught un-
der a vine and my body was thrown
heavily to the ground. When I at-
tempted to rise, my ankle cracked.
Frantically I strove to stand, but in
vain. My ankle was fractured. Drag-
ging the helpless leg along, I sought a
tree as a means of escape. Then my
spirit froze within me, for, threshing
through the undergrowth, uttering ter-
rible gutteral grunts, the beast was
overtaking me. At last he came so
near that it seemed. that his hot breath
was singeing my neck. I shuddered,
thinking of the gruesome death ap-
proaching. In one more leap he would
have towered above me, when a hairy
form shot out of the bushes straight
for the bear's throat. It was Lobo. I
cried like a baby over the miraculous
deliverance. Then there ensued one
of the most terrible- battles I have
ever witnessed. Lobo's wolf instinct
kept him out of the reach of those
terrible armed paws. At every oppor-
tunity he would rush if close to the
reared beast, tearing a strip from the
black hide. The bear soon showed
sign of weakening. This encouraged
bolder tactics on the part of the wolf-
dog. Once, when the aggressed ani-
mal seemed to be exhausted, the dog
charged in his very face. My head
grew dizzy, for the murderous arm had
suddenly awakened from its coma and
found its mark upon Lobois unpro-
tected body. The bleeding dog lay as
if he were dead. Now the frenzied
beast sought my destruction. With a
sickening sureness of his prey, he
wabbled towards me. I drew my hunt-
ing knife, determined to die fighting.
Then a rustle behind the murderer
made him hesitate. That pause saved
my life. I could have touched him
when he stopped. Yes, I was fainting.
My head throbbed, my ankle burned.
I remember hearing a blood-curdling
growl, accompanied by a sharp report
of a rifle, then, darkness.
"VVhen I regained consciousness,.I
found myself in a cabin of a hunter.
He explained how he had heard the
struggle between the- two beasts, also
how he killed the bear, but the one
thing he told me that I shall never
forget was this: When he discovered
me prostrate on the ground, Lobo had
crawled to my side and was vainly
trying to revive me, although his own
noble body was mangled and tornf,

THE PARALLELOGRAM OF
f'Wliy should I go to High School?
I wanta be an Admiral of the U. S.
Navy. High School don't learn you
nuthin' about sailinf I'm gonta enlist
and learn from the ground up."
Yes, Mr. N. E. Beauee, y-ou could
learn to navigate, and be an Admiral in
such a manner, but why not take a
R wg g ff
short cut through high school, and
then a shorter cut through college?
High School does teach you some
things about navigation. For example,
let my explanation of how the Parallel-
ogram of Forces Cwhich is causing
some students' of physics to worryj is
applied in the sailing of a racing yacht,
like 'one of those which competed in
the races between the English and
American yachts, or a fishing smack.
Look at this diagram. In sailing
againstithe wind, the sail, AC, is
turned as you see it in the diagram.
The wind is blowing in the direction
indicated by the lines from W to AC.
The wind will force the boat .to go in
the direction N, if the rudder is turned
in the direction R.
Consider the entire force of the
wind W as being concentrated at B
and its magnitude represented by DF.
Then, applying the Parallelogram
Law and constructing a parallelogram
with FD as a diagonal or, in other
words, resolving the force of the wind
into its effective and non-effective
components, the effective force which
is pushing directly against the sail is
found to be equal to LF or FG.
But all of the force LF is not ex-
pended in driving the boat forward,
since the effective component of DF
is pulling at right angles to the sail.
This effective component is equal to
LF or BY, Therefore, resolving the
force BY into its components which
are acting parallel with and perpendic-
ular to the boat, BX is found to be
the effective force which is driving
the boat forward and BZ is found to
be the non-effective .force which is
blowing directly against the side of
the boat. The force of the wind
against the side of the boat, however,
is not great enough to overcome the
friction of the keel and side- of the
boat against the water, thereforeithe
boat is driven forward by the effective

It will not be driven forward, how-
ever, unless the rudder is turned in
the direction R. The force of the wind
against the sail will cause the boat to
swing around and turn directly into
the wind, if the rudder is not turned
so as to guide the boat away from a
path which will head it directly into
the wind. If the tendency to turn is
not overcome, the boat will be blown
backward, since the sail is turned so
that the wind can not blow against it.
So, my friend, you see what can be
learned in High School. And this is
only one of the many practical applica-
tions to any form of navigation that
can be learned in High School. .

The English language, enriched as it
is with the contributions of the an-
cients, comes to us surcharged with
apt and expressive words. Not least
of these is the word, "candle," which
brings to mind many pleasant associa-
tions. Who can ever forget his first
birthday cake- .with its few burning
candles? Likewise viewing the cere-
mony of lighting the Christmas tree so
that Santa cannot fail to find the
stockings is one of childhood's pleas-
ant experiences. We see candles on
the altars of churches, we see candles
in homes and business offices when
the electric light company declares a
In the days of our forefathers the
candles themselves were home made,
now that they can be obtained very
cheaply this is no longer done. Instead
we turn our attention to the candle-
stick which may make or mar the ar-
tistic effect of the whole. Would you
like to make one for yourself? if so,
you should take Turning. Northeast
takes pride in teaching her boys and
girls to use their hands as well as their
heads, though it saves tempers and
fingers when both work together.
The first two things necessary be-
fore the actual turning are the draw-
ing or selecting of- a design and the
choosing of the wood. VValnut and
mahogany are the most' popular, a
sllght preference being shown for the
former, maybe because it requires less
finishing. But do not ,think for a
minute that we are prone to be lazy,
you would not be either if Mr. Ellis
were your teacher.
The first mechanical part begins
when the wood is cut by the band saw,
the greatest precautions being taken
to prevent the finger nails from being
manicured at this time-an unpleas-
ant sensation, I assure you, when done
by a band saw. After the sawing,
comes the centering and the boring of
the candle holeiwhich-requires a keen
eye and a steady hand. Next the up-
right part of the stick is put in the
lathe and the corners turned off.
Then about an inch of the bottom
-end is turned down to a specified
diameter and glued into a hole in
the base, which was bored for this-
purpose. When the glue has set for
twenty-four hours the object, for no
other name suits it, is put in the lathe
and turned to match the design as
nearly as possible. , Then the candle-
stick, for such it has become, is sand-
papered. During this procedure too
many 'amateurs take this opportunity
to dream,.but they are rudely awak-
ened by aburning sensation in the
finger applying the sandpaper. After
this experience they dream no more,
but tell their minds to "get on the
job" as Doctor Barker advised them
to. Then the wood filler and shellac
are applied, sometimes followed by
varnish and pumice stone.
' But despite a few misfortunes, the
candlesticks when finished are a de-
light to the eye, of the maker at least,
although the two sometimes may be
somewhat dissimilar in appearance.
Notwithstanding some minor injuries
such as skinned knuckles, injured pride
and shattered hopes, we have trans-
formed a block oi' wood into a thing
of beauty, and you know, "a thing of
beauty is a joy forever." '

THE VELOCITY OF A BULLET.
"To every action there is an equal
and opposite reaction."-Newton.
One peaceful day'the students CH who
.are in the north wing of the school heard
a series of shots in room 207 during the
fourth and fifth hours and possibly thought:
'VVhat is Mr. Pinkney doing to those poor
Those who were in there could answer:
"We were only measuring the velocities of
some bullets. Gee! but it was interesting."
And this was one of the most interesting
experiments we have performed this year.
The two classes Cor, rather, Mr. Pinkneyj
measured the velocity of bullets used in 22,
.32 and .38 calibre revolvers. The first hour
class was luckyg they didn't have to do this
We had to develop the formula Cby
geometryj: A ballistic pendulum Csee fig-
urej was used. to determine these veloci-
ties. This is a pendulum which is sus-
pended from a beam on the ceiling by four
strings or wires to which are attached the
four upper corners of a block of wood. This
block swings like any other pendulum, ex-
cept that it is suspended by four strings in-
stead of one. In fll'l'll11'f,' the velocity of
the bullet we first had to find the distance
the block M Csee fifjurej would fall. ln
order to find this distance we have to know
how much the center of gravity moves, ver-
tically, from rest at C. When M moves
through the arc AC. its center of gravity
mpves a distance horizontally equal to
d CABJ and vertically equal to S CBCD. The
distance cl CAB is perpendicular to OCD is
measured by a yardstick placed underneath
M fthe pendulumj and by a s'nall block
which is placed along the side of the yard-
stick and which is attached to M at E.
When the pendulum moves. it pulls this small
block along the yardstick and thus meas-
ures the distance. It will take M the same
'flme to move from rest at C to A as it will
take M. to fall freely from rest at B to C.
Now, since- we have found the distance M
moves horizontally, we want the distance
CSD that M falls in terms of 1 and d. 1 is
the distance from the center of gravity of
M to the point of suspension from the ceil-
lllg- SO, by the corollary to the Pythagorean

enuse minus the square of the other legb,

tion Cto every action there is an equal and

momentum of the bullet equals the momen-
tum of the pendulum, and, since momentum
is measured by the product of M-V, we
have MV:mv, when M is the weight of
the block, V the velocity of the block, m the
weight of the bullet and v the velocity of

Wve took the necessary measurements for
finding the velocity of the bullets. In tak-
ing these measurements we neglected the
errors caused by the blast of air that comes
out of the barrel of the gun and the weight
of the bullet, which was added to the weight
of the pendulum, because of their infinitesi-
mal values. A piece of paper CP5 between
the pendulum and the revolver will stop the
blast of air from affecting the velocity of
the pendulum. The measurements were taken
after Mr. Pinkney said: "Now open your
mouths." They are:

The acceleration due to gravity at Kansas
City, MO., is 32.1514 ft.fsec. 2-exponent.
In calculating the velocity of these bul-
lets, the measurements must be in pounds

ond, or in grams and centimeters to have
the result in centimeters per second. The

It probably seems queer that the velocity
of the .22 is greater than the velocity of
the .32 or .38. But this is due to the differ-
ence between the barrels of the different
revolvers. The .22 that was us Ed was a long-
barreled army target revolver and the others
were the regular .32s and .38s. The detona-
tions of these revolvers caused the mem-
bers of these classes, especially the girls, to
assume strange postures, so as to avoizl
any unpleasant effects on the ears. We
laughed and laughed at each other's open
mouths and ridiculous attitudes. We will
always remember this experiment as the
most pleasant and interesting one we ever
performed under Mr. Pinkney's guidance.

ARTS AND SCIENCE EDITOR.
.We would not be far from wrong
if we said that the study of chemistry
has advanced more in the last century
and a half, than it has since its begin-
ning. The ancients studied chemical
actions, and the art of changing some
baser metal into a more precious metal.
This study was called alchemy. We
therefore have no old laws in chemis-
try, as for instance, "Archimedes Prin-
ciple" in Physics which has stood the
test of the Twentieth Century scien-
tists. ' ' ' '
The entire reason for this lies in
the fact that the most important chem-
ical action, namely: burning, was not
understood until the middle of the
Eighteenth Century, when Antoine
Laurent Lavoiser discovered the chem-
ical change which a metal undergoes
when heated in air. He took a quan-
tity of mercury, and heating it to the
temperature just below the boiling
point of mercury C357OCj, noticed that
after a few days, a red powder was
formed Qmercuric oxidej. On weigh-
ing this mercuric oxide he found that
it weighed more than the mercury.
Then he took this mercuric oxide, an-il,
heating it for several days to a tem-
perature above the boiling point of
mercury, found that a quantity of gas
was evolved, and that small particQes
of mercury were clinging to the sices
of the vessel. The evolved gas he
called oxygen. Un again weighing tfie
mercury he found that it had the same
weight as the mercury with which he
had started. Then on weighing the
gas he found that the loss of weigfit
of the mercuric oxide was equal to the
weight of the oxygen. On investigat-
ing further, he found that in burning,
the weight of the entire products ex-
ceeds the weight of the fuel. And with
these experiments, and experiments of
similar nature by other great scien-
tists, such as Joseph Priestly, who was
a contemporary of Lavoiser, the study
of chemistry was revolutionized.
Lavoiser, in 1786, was the first to
explain ordinary burning as the com-
bining of a substance with oxygen.
Such a combining is an oxidation and
the compounds formed are known as
oxides. There are four different kinds
of oxidations, namely: ordinary burn-
ing, slow oxidation, spontaneous com-
bustion, and explosion. Qrdinary burn-
ing is an oxidation accompanied by
noticeable light and heat. Take the
case of a burning candle fone of the
most interesting lectures was given by
Michael Faraday at the Royal Institu-
tion in London on "The Chemical His-
tory of a Candle"j, we notice the light
and heat but do not realize that a
chemical change is occurring. Neither
would we believe that the gaseous
products which are formed, will weigh
more than the candle itself unless we
were actually shown that such is the
case, as was demonstrated in the chem-
istry classes. Even then it is hard to
believe. This increase in weight is
due to the oxygen taken out of the
air. In ordinary burning nearly all
substances undergo similar changes.
In slow oxidation, no noticeable
light or heat are evolved.. Neverthe-
less the same kind of action is taking
place in slow oxidation, the only dif-
ference, as the name implies, is that
if goes on at a much slower rate.
Let us take, for instance, the rusting
of a tin can, which really should be

called tinned can because it is nothing
but an iron can covered with a very
thin coat of tin. As this tin can rusts
away it leaves iron oxide, or rust as it
is more commonly called. This is the
same product that we would derive if
we burned iron in oxygen, for iron
burns in oxygen. A more striking
comparison can be made between two
pieces of wood, one piece being burned
and the other left on a wet ground to
rot, or a process of slow oxidation. lf
a chemical analysis were made of the
products of both pieces of wood, after
the chemical reaction is complete, they
will be found to be composed of the
same compounds and elements. Also
the amount of heat liberated in both
cases will be found to be the same.
Another case of slow oxidation, is
that which takes place in the human
body. We inhale the air of which one-
fifth is oxygen. Those who have studied
physiology know that the blood,
after having flown through the body,
flows to the lungs, liberates carbon
dioxide, heat, water vapor, and other
impurities, and absorbs the oxygen
from the air in the lungs. The blood
carries this oxygen to the various tis-
sues of the body. There the oxygen
reacts with these tissues, forming the
above named products as well as gen-
erating enough heat to keep the body
at a normal temperature of about nine-
ty-eight degrees Fahrenheit. The
same thing is true in all animal bodies.
And you, who have studied physiology,
have wondered why your body is al-
ways compared to a steam engine. The
reason for this is that the products
of respiration are the same as those
from any other burning.
Spontaneous combustion is an oxi-
dation involving both of the above
mentioned oxidations. It is an actual
burning started by the accumulation
of heat of a slow oxidation. Oily rags.
for instance, are very poor conductors
of heat. A slow oxidation is taking
place between the oils in the rags and
the oxygen in the air. Heat is evolved,
the same as in the human body, for
in a case of slow oxidation, as well as
in the other oxidations, there is alwaye
a certain amount of heat evolved, due
to the fact that the molecules of both
substance undergo a chemical change
and in the friction thereof, a small
amount of heat is generated. Since
rags are poor conductors of heat, this
heat accumulates until the kindling
temperature of the rags fthe lowest
temperature at which a substance will
take fire in air and continue to burnj
has been reached. Then, if such a pile
of rags should happen to be left lying
in the corner of a factory, which has
no automatic sprinkler system, and
the watchman is down in the engine
room exchanging yarns with the en-
gineer, we would see in the morning
papers with great headlines, "Another
factory destroyed by fire due to spon-
taneous combustionf' A great many
grain elevators, hay stacks, hay barns,
and paint factories are destroyed by
Now we come to the last but not the
least of the four types of oxidations
namely: explosion. Specifically de-
fined, explosion is a very rapid com-
bustion, accompanied by a sudden in-
crease in pressure due to the increase
of the volume of the gas. Let us take
the case of a' cartridge about to be
fired from a gun. At the head ofthe
cartridge there is a primer composed
of fulminate of mercury, definitely
formed and shaped, and exactly
weighed. The hammer of the gun as
soon as it hits this primer, creates
enough heat to cause this fulminate of
mercury to ignite. The ignited fulmi-
nate of mercury, having a much lower
kindling temperature than the powder,
in turn ignites the powder. As the
powder burns, which it does very
rapidly, a gas is evolved. It is this
sudden increase in volume due to the
gases formed which forces the bullet
from the shell. A similar case of ex
plosion is made use of in the gasoline
engines. In this case, the mixture of
gasoline vapor and air burns in the

' Qld Man Basketball got a flying
start at Northeast for the season of
1921-1922, when the Sophomores
emerged victorious in the inter-class
tournament which was held during the
week of November twenty-eighth to
December second, nineteen twenty-
one. The contests were hard-fought
from beginning to end, and were in-
In the first series, which was held
on November twenty-eighth, the Soph-
omores overwhelmed the Freshmen by
a score of 23 to 6. This contest was
a good beginning, for it showed the
superiority of the second year aggre-
gation over the first and it also showed
the first year team the system of play
at Northeast. Stockwell, playing for-
ward for the Freshmen, displayed
senior, even first team ability to play
basketball. Bash, at center, also played
a good game. For the Sophomores,
DelVIarea, at guard, and Jeffries, the
Sophomore captain, each played a fine
game, DelVIarea caging six goals.
In the second game of the series the
Seniors and juniors played a tight
game, the Seniors finally winning by a
score of 25 to 19. The forwards of the
Senior team, Onafrio and johnson,
made a splendid pair. Lapin, at guard,
and Southern at forward, each played
a game worthy of praise.
THE SECOND SERIES.
At the sound of the referee's whistle
on November twenty-ninth, the sec-
ond series got under way. The Juniors
snowed the Freshmen under by a score
of 23 to 1. The lone point of the
Freshmen was made by Stockwell,
playing forward. McDonald and South-
ern, both forwards, played a mi ht

fine game at their positions. Griggs,
at center, also played a good game.
In the SCC.O11d game of the series
the finally victorious champions, :the
Sophomores, humbled the aggregation
1 an interesting game, the Seniors re-
ceiving the short end of the score of
ll to 9. For the Seniors, L. Qnafrio, a
guard, played a good game, as did
Foreman, at center. Koonse, diminu-
tive forward, played a fine game, DQ-
Marea at guard, also starred at his
THE THIRD SERIES.
On November first, the series which
proved to be the hardest fought of all
the contests, started. The Seniors
ho-oked up with the team representing
the Freshmen and were defeated by
the close score of 12 to ll. As the
score indicates the game was hard
fought. Fouls were very noticeable,
the Seniors committing twelve and
the Freshmen ten. The Onafrio
brothers, Nick and Louie, starred at
forward and guard, respectively.
Stockwell, as in previous encounters
with upper classmen, played well for
the Freshmen. His spectacular shots
from center and near center aroused
In the second battle of the day, the
Sophomores went into the affray lead-
ing the school by a percentage of l,OOO,
having won two games and lost none,
but they were humbled by the second
place juniors by a score of 18 to 12.
It was a hard fought contest as is in-
dicated by the final score. The

Sophomores tried to use a five man
defense, but it was broken up. Jeff-
ries and DeMarea each played fine
games, while the playing of Koonse
must not be overlooked. McDonald,
at forward, and Lapin, 'at guard,
showed up well for their team, the
Juniors, as did Griggs at center.
THE CHAMPIONSHIP CONTEST.
As the previous game brought the
juniors into a tie with the Sophomores
for first place, an extra game had to
be played in order to decide the champ-
ionship. It was decided that the extra
game was to be played on December
second, promptly at three o'clock on
that day, with George Denison as ref-
eree, the contest got under way. The
Sophomores were confident of win-
ning, and as their confidence showed
at the end, they conquered the Juniors
by a close score of 23 to 18. Each
team was within two points of each
other during the entire game, although
the Sophomores retained their lead
throughout the game. Jeffries and
DeMarea, both of whom had played
well in previous battles, starred for
the winners. Griggs, the lanky center,
and Southern, forward, played fine
games for the losers. As a result of
this game, the Sophomores won the
championship of all the classes of
Northeast for the season of 1921-1922.
The final standings of the teams were

THE ALUMNI GAME.
The annual contest between the
Alumni and regular fives of North-
east was held on December 22, 1921
Whoever selected December 22 as the
date for the battle for the supremacy
between the non-graduates and grad-
uates is worthy of praise. For on that
date we had what is termed in Uni-
versity circles a home coming. Qn
that day the largest representative
gathering of Alumni that ever assem-
bled in Northeast's gymnasium wit-
nessed their favorites overcome the
regular five by a score of 45 to 32. The
team showed itself to be well balanced
despite their loss, for the Alumni are
all excellent players and have been
keeping in form by playing on various
teams since the time of graduation.
The game was interesting from be-
ginning to end, and it was also hard
fought. Northeast started the scoring
when Griggs, the lanky center, dropped
a free toss through the basket. Ruby
Dorough, the phenominal wonder,
started the scoring for the alumni
when he made a field goal. The game
was full of thrills and Ruby made
seemingly impossible shots. foe De-
honey, our ex-captain and member of
the all-star team, played a wonderful
game. Very few times were our play-
ers able to penetrate his defense. Bill
Thompson and Frank Wheat, in fact
all the Alumni, played a mighty fine
game. Harry Griggs of the varsity
dropped in goal after goal with the aid
of our guards, Lapin, Koonse and Mil-
ler. George Deniston, our captain,
was not feeling very well, and his help
was missed. He played part of the
game, and did his best in the part in
which he did play.
At the end of the first half the
Alumni were leading our team by a
score of '29 to 9. Deniston was re-in--
serted in the game, and a change of
the attitude of the players resulted.
From that time on they fought with
all their might and main. Our team
swept the Alumni off their feet, but
it was too late. Goal after goal went
through our basket, but all in vain.

NORTHEAST AND LAWRENCE
No doubt every Northeast basketball
fan is well pleased with this year's
squad. Its victory over Lawrence of
40-12 inspires us and discourages the
future opponents of the High School
The first quarter showed that the
Northeast team had been well drilled
in the art of passing. They passed
the ball with such speed and accuracy
that the Lawrence boys were bewild-
ered. If by chance they did get the
ball, they were unable to break through
the Koonse-Miller defense to score.
The guarding of Miller was a feature
of the team'5 play. The Lawrence for'
wards making all their shots from the
center of the court, was a certainty
that they would not pile up a huge

self to be by far the best floor man
ever seen on our court. He broke up
Plfly after play and shot whenever he
wished, as tae Lawrence guards were
unable to stop him. The first half
ended with Northeast leading 19-4.
The third quarter started with a
rush. Northeast chalked up three
goals before Lawrence knew the game
was again in motion. Koonse began
showing his form in this period and
he broke many a L.awrence play be-
fore they advanced the ball -to the
center of the court. This being
Koonse's first game, he was a little
stage-struck in the early periods of the
game-. ln this quarter we scored 14'

A RECORD CROWD FOR OPENING
GAME OF INTERSCHOLASTIC
HIGH SCHOOL BASKET-
The basketball season for the inter-
scholastic 'high school games openefl
with .a record crowd of about ten
thousand people in Convention Hall,
the evening of January l4. Judging
from the enthusiasm of the audience
there is no doubt as to the popularity
of basketball in Kansas City.
In the first contest Northeast won
from Manual, 25 to 9, while Central
beat Westport in the second game, 30
to 25. Northeast's victory 'over Man-
ual came as a surprise to basketball
fans, for the rumor had gone forth
some time ago that Manual had the
edge on the four teams. This all goes
to show how uncertain the pre-season
knowledge has been.
Northeast, with only one basketball
letterman, Captain Geo. Deniston, suc-
ceeded in giving Manual, who has three
veterans, a good trouncing. The Crim-
son offensive was woefully weak and
they only registered three field goals.
Deniston played a fine floor game for
the Purple. He and Nick Onofrio were
responsible for most of the- points.
Koonse and Miller were on their men
like leeches. VVhile Griggs did not
cage as many goals as usual, nine
times out of ten he got

played a most effective game and
promises to be one of the most level-
headed players Northeast has had for
some time. Theodore Miller, the sta-

EM MA DAY, Editor.
Witli the beginning of the second se-
mester the athletic girls are entering
upon another series of athletic sports.
Basketball, track, indoor baseball, and
tennis have taken the place of the il-
lustrious soccer football and volley
Of course, as yet, not much has been
done concerning the selection of the
class teamsfor the final games. All
the girls, however, have set to work
with lots of vim. The freshmen, rather
elated over their part in soccer, are
determined to give battle for other vic-
We hope indoor baseball and tennis
will prove to be quite as captivating as
basketball and track work. Though
we don't pretend to be Babe Ruths
and Mlle. Lenglen, we do say that we
make fairly good amateur players.
Sometimes things do not go just as
we want them, but then we have the
true- Olympic grit and we're not the
sort who quit, for we are working to
promote a spirit of sportsmanship
among the girls.

have you noticed that I didn't write

was too tired from playing basketball.
That is a funny game. Why do you
know I forgot which side I was on

did call me down. Well, when I did
get the ball I threw it to her and she
wouldn't even catch it.

A HIKE IN THE SNOW.
Do you know that the Northeast
Olympians are real sports? If you
don't believe it just listen. Last Fri--
day afternoon from three to five, some
of the girls took a five mile hike in the
snow. At three o'clock we left the
school and starteo out not knowing
where we were going, but some way
or other we found plenty of hills and
more cheerful Christmas this year by
making some one else happy.
The Saturday afternoon before
Christmas a committee composed of
Mary Elliott and myself, took the con-
tributions, which had been so gener-
ously donated by the club girls, to the
home of the family for whom we cared.
While there the children helped us
trim a Christmas tree, which we had
brought. You can imagine the happy
hands as they placed the candy beads,
canes, popcorn balls and other orna-
ments and small toys on the tree.
There were gifts for all the eight
children and also some clothing.
In addition the club furnished their
Christmas dinner, which consisted of a
ten-pound roast and a bushel basket of
We feel sure that the family appreci-
ated our efforts and the club felt fully
repaid for their endeavor. Both the
family and the Olympic Association
had a merrier Christmas.

done nothing so far this year along

Some people are still fighting out
the problems which have been settled
for centuries. Mr. Finckney is called
upon to settle bets every now an-'l
then in Physics that come up in a busi-
ness man's life. Only last week a man
won S1320 because he said that if a can-
non ball and a beebe were dropped
from the top of the Federal Reserve
Bank Building that they would both
strike the pavement at the same time.
His statement was doubted by another
business man, and when Mr. Pinckney
confirmed the formerys statement,
some man had to make up an excuse
to stay out of the weekly game of-
Gn January 3 the boys' affirmative
debate squad was chosen. The work
is progressing nicely. The members
of the squad are: Bill Borders, Chas.
Rovensky, Frank Miller, Harold Tay-
lor, Le Roy Smith and Erich Sobota.
Mr. Miller, coach. On the next after-
noon the negative squad was chosen,
and is progressing about as fast as
the affirmative. The squad: Rudolph
Hapke, Dwinnell Elliot, Edgar Eich-
man, Ray Sterling, Carol Ward, Stan-
ley Ruhlman. Mr., Nettles, coach.
On january 9 the Northeast Boys'
High School Club held its first meet-
ing of the new year. A fine meal
was served by the ladies ofthe Beth-
any Baptist Church, after which Mr.
Sterling Williams gave us a fine talk.
A change is to be made in the pro-
gram of the Boys' High School Club.
Everyone who is interested in the work
of the club realizes that the club is not
making it-self felt as it should. In
view of this fact, practical discussion
groups are to be held after the meet-
ings of the club proper. Also, the
speakers are going to go into the
Christian life deeper than they have
been doing. W
On Wednesday afternoon, January
11, Mr. Pinckney brake both of his
arms. One break was not as bad as
he first thought, as he can use one of
his arms-the left--a little, but not
much. He will be out of school for
some time, but everyone will be glad
to see him back, at least for a little of
each day. Through the whole affair
Mr. Pinckney smiled and nat once did
any one hear him complain.
At the Boys, High School Club
meeting held january l6 at Budd Park

were elected to pilot the club through

On January 5 and 6, Mr. Nowlin
had such a bad cold that he had to

played Lawrence and everyone missed

real mixer that 'has been given in

The Vesta Club may be young but
some of the older clubs are going to
have to work hard .unless they want
to be left behind. The Vesta Club is
making each business and social meet-
ing count. At the business meetings
some efficient person delivers an in-

lightful lecture. The John Taylor Dry
Goods Company sent out a very attrac-

The faculty entertained with

All "guests" reported a good time.
The department of bookkeeping in
Northeast High School is one to be
proud of. lt seems that the honors
won by this department have been
escaping the notice of the students.
For the last two years Northeast has
won first place at the Missouri State
Fair-an honor not to be laughed at by
any means. Last year Estelle Hiatt,
who was graduated, and Antenetta
Gracatone won the blue ribbon. lft
must be remembered that the ability
to keep books is a by-product in this
department, while the real purpose of
this subject is the teaching of business
habits, such as punctuality, neatness.
accuracy and courtesy.
During the mid-year examination
week everyone had to study. Any one
who visited Northeast would have
thought that Xmas came late around
that school, since everyone has been so
good. Well, we'll admit we had to be,
'cause we never were so studious be-
fore, or will be after.
How did you like the Inter-Club
Dance or the reports you heard about
it? From now on it is probable that
all social functions of the school will
be held in the Gym, which will always
be decorated as peppy as possible. This
decorating has been made possible by
the Northeast Parent Teachers Asso-
ciation, which appropriated S100 at its
meeting on january 17 for the deco-
ration of the Gym for social functions.
The money is to be spent by a corn-
mittee composed of a few mothers
from the Parent Teachers Association
and members from each club and

Heard from a disgruntled literary
editor+"A lot of this so-called liter-
ary material would make fine locals
if the writer only knew it." So don't
be surprised if your poem appeared in
the Arts and Science Department.
Some of the editors might have
switched material in their despair.
By the way, did you know that a
copy of the Centennial issue- of the
Nor'easter was filed in the library of
the Missouri State Historical Society
at Columbia, and recorded as the only
periodical of any sort, high school or
otherwise, that commemorated Mis-
souri's anniversary in such a manner.
So says Mr. Shoemaker, the custodian
of the Missouri State Historical So-
ciety at Missfwuri State University, in
reply to Professor Phillips, who sent
the Nor'easter to that society.
DO YOU KNOW-
That over 1,200 season tickets were
sold for the basketball games, or over
300 more than last year?
That there are over 2,200 students
enrolled in Northeast High School for
the second term of this year, or over
340 more than for the same term last
J That there are over 18,000 books in
our Branch Library? About 8,134
were drawn out during the month af
December. Almost 9,000 were drawn
out in january?

The following statement is issued bv
Collector of Internal. Revenue, Geo. 15.
Crutchley, the Sixth District of Mis-
souri, Kansas City:
'lEnactment of new revenue legislation has
brought to the offices of Collectors of 1n-
ternal Revenue a flood of inquiries regard-
ing various provisions. The Revenue Act of
1921 became effective November 25, 1921, un-
less otherwise provided for."
"To avoid error in the preparation of their
returns and later difficulties with the Bu-
reau of Internal Revenue, taxpayers are
advised to carefully note the changes and
when they become effective.
"The excess profits tax is repealed as of
January 1, 1922. The rates for 1921 are un-
"The surtax rates for the calendar year
1921 are unchanged and range from 1 per
cent on the amount of net income between
35,000 and 36,000 to 65 per cent on the amount
of net income in excess of 31,000,000 For
the calendar year 1922 the surtax rates range
from 1 per cent on the amount of net in-
come between 36,0'00 and 310.000 to 50 per
cent on the amount by which the net in-
come exceeds 3200.000.
"The exemption allowed for a dependent
is increased from 3200 to 3400. Married per-
sons living with husband or wife and heads
of families are allowed a personal exemption
of 32,500 Cinstead of 32 0003 unless the net
income is in excess of 35,000. in which case
the personal exemption is only 32000. The
act provides that in no case shall the reduc-
tion of the personal exemption from 32.500
to 32.000 operate to increase the tax which
would be payable if the exemption were
32,500 by more than the amount of the net
income in excess of 35 000. This is to over-
come the disparity in the case of two tax-
payers, one of whom is just within the lower
32,000 exemption and the other just within
the higher 32,500 exemption.
"Single persons, and married persons not
living with husband or wife, are allowed an
exemption of 31.000, Non-resident aliens
are allowed a single personal exemption of
31.000. Persons having gross incomes for
1921 of 35,000 or over are required to make a
return. regardless of the amount of net in-
"Provision is made for the repeal as of
january 1. 1922, of the tax on stockholders
of a personal service corporation as such.
After that date such corporations are to be
taxed in the same manner as other corpora-
"The income tax on corporations for the
calendar year 1922:.mf1 1'l1"l'0?lff'l" is "'-
creasefl from 10 to 1216 DCF CONT- The 32 090
exemption heretofore allowed corporations
is m be granted Onlv 'rg those corporations
whose net income is 325.000 or less. g
"Many persons are under the impression
that the taxes on ice cream soft drinks, etc.,
.monthly returns of which are required, have
been repealed with the enactment of the
new act. These taxes remain in force until
the end of the calendar year, 1921.
.UNO change is made in the tax on admis-
sions, except that after january 1, 1922,
there will be no tax where admission is 10
cents or less. Effective January 1, 1922, the
following taxes are abolished: On musical
instruments, sporting goods, chewing gum
porta.ble electric fans, thermos bottles, fur
articles, pleasure boats and pleasure canoes,
tunless sold for more than 31005, toilet ar-
ticles, medicines and numerous articles of
"On and after January 1, 1922, the tax on
various works of art is reduced from 10 per
cent to 5 per cent, the tax on candy from 5
per cent to 3 per cent and the tax on car-
pets, rugs, trunks, valises purses, fans, etc.
from 10 per cent of sales price in excess of
specified amounts to 5 per cent of sales
price in excess of specified amounts.
"The tax on parcel post packages is elim-
inated effective January 1, 1922
"The new act provides that no taxpayer
shall be subjected to unnecessary examina-
tions or investigations, and only one inspec-
tion of his books or accounts shall be made
for each taxable year unless the taxpayer
requests otherwise, or the Commissioner no-
tifies the taxpayer in writing that an addi-
tional inspection is necessary.
"The period for filing returns on the cal-
endar year basis is from january 1 to March
15, 1922. This year, as last. the tax may
be paid in full at the time of filing the re-
turn or in four equal installments, due on or
before March 15, June 15 September 15 and
"Copies of the revenue act may be had by
application to this office.
Mrs. Lockwood always has some
humorous story to tell any one who
happens to put her in the mood. "One
day during the mid-year exams" she
sprang this one. It seems she had been
talking very seriously with a boy about
his studies, when Porter Lister rushed
up to her and exclaimed excitedly:
"Have vou heard the latest news?"
Mrs.iLockwood is always looking
out for the welfare of everyone, and
she thought at once that someone was
hurt. So she anxiously answered, 'fNo,
what's the matter now.',
"Oh," replied Porter, "they burned
the beans in the lunch room 1"
Miss Gaylord: "Iva, 1 would like
all of your attentionf,
lrene: "So would I."

A FEW NEW IDEAS UPON AN OLD
The teacher of today has an open
mind, and therefore one of the faculty
of Northeast gladly welcomed an item
of news concerning "Ivanhoe" From
one student, apparently of a sporting
bent, she learned that the purpose of
the Crusades was to free England from
the turf. Further light was thrown
upon this subject from another source
by the suggestion that the Crusades
were to furnish amusement for the
common people. Cedric was a hand-
some young man Qthis was written by
a girlj and she was surprised to find
thgt he was a Norman noble. One lad
to whom the term "Makers of His-
tory" was evidently no idle phrase, dis-
closed the- secret, hitherto well guard-
ed that the Cedric of ulvanhoen was in
reality Cedric ll, King of England.
CTeachers of history, please note.j Ot
importance to churchmen was the an-
nouncement that "Monks are some re-
lation to Catholicsf' whetherby blood
or marriage was not made clear.
But when she came to one later
paper the timid pedagogue paused in
consternation, fearing to see the
haughty Templar rise and shake a
mailed fist in her face. For one bold
young Democrat had written that "A
Templar is Brion de Bois Guilbert. He

The settlement of international dis-
putes is largely due to the develop-
ment of explosives, for even in this
day of advanced Cllristianization the
real decision lies not in the council of
wise statesmen, but is rather in the an-
nihilation of the forces of the enemy
through chemical means.
So it is that in this day when civiliza-
tion seems to have reached her top-
most pinnacle, chemistry has also come
forward to an advanced posit-ion which
she has never held before and just as
civilization bids fair to progress in
the future so does the path of chem-
