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 -with Mrs. M. Daniels chairman of the committee and with four or five hundred dollars additional to be spent next year. To show our appreciation, it seems that we should help in every way, so rack your brains for ideas and your pocket for money. 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? H. S. - 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 - I- 1- -2' f'.fT'f J -. . ll Q .-.AWN , LM.- b , I .. .V's1dev4'+1:sMf'vn1-Q:!41ie! .11 L 4' 1 1 P 'A' 1 I I. 7 ' --fe 1"e'e'- 'ee'-ff':r-Y---11sf-.-fA-auf.-.:aff -aasfpff-..fg:ffa:..v:',aff A-..m':,,.,.-ff.,,, ,A , , .- . 8 OF, QHSIQI? 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 aims. 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? 01' are you satisfied with the street lights below? . E. B. 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- tion. .4 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?

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. Brayj 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 10 OF' QCHSIQI? blades of grass that impertinently nudged each other and nodded toward meg and some bird had the audacity to peck at me before he went on his way!

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.

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 77 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 79 P!! -ik i ,.-m - . .-- --- --'H Y-11-" Q - 'f-'ff i.....' ' .' . ' T. .

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 u . 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 spied !" "VVho? Wliat do you mean?" asked her friend. "Shh-! Come see-" was the an- swer. 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 up. 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.

I-Iave you thought of the expense?" Celia shut her eyes tightly. "I have a home which has long been prepared for childish delightsv continued Adele.

"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."

So a strong, clean, encouraged Iohn strode briskly towards the car line and boarded a street car that would take him directly to school. ' He loved his high school work as much as he detested and hated his father. He was a senior and had 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 gaining as editor-in-chief of his school paper would help him with his chosen work. . 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 best friend-girl friend-had slighted him on that day of daysg and he didn't know why! This feeling of depression grew upon him as he stepped from the school into the cold of the damp, gray mists that had displaced the pleasant weather which the forenoon had brought. He wondered, for some unaccountable reason, if his life would be like this particular day.

He remembered his father and hoped he wasn't home. ready to mistreat his mother when she came home from work to that ancient-looking tenement in which they existed, it was so old that no one could remember when it was built, and it had been condemned last year by an official who examined it carefully, looked serious, and shook his head gravely. As a result, the empty upper rooms had never been re-rented. And he hoped they never would beg at least, not while he lived there. . The street car came to his stop. I-Ie got off, turned up the collar of his overcoat, and remarked to a passing acquaintance, "These mists from the 'Big Muddy' are almost as bad as a London fog." He half ran the short distance to his home where he discovered two large, heavy moving vans in front of the tenement and learned that two fam- ilies were moving in. He watched the movers raise- a half-wrecked piano, it was hoisted to the top story, accom- panied by a creaking noise which did not seem to come from the pulleys. Then climbing up the stairway, he en- tered the- place he called home and was surprised to find his mother there so early. "What's the matter, Mother?" "Chl I just had one of my sick spells an' had to come homefl "Can I do anything for you?" "No, I'm all right now. I want you to run down to the store, though, an' get a loaf of breadf' "What's that pounding from above?" he asked from the doorway. "That's our new neighbor cuttin' a hole for that window which should have been built there." "He'd better be careful. The mortar in that wall is old and has crumbled for years," john remarked as he closed the door and stumbled gropingly into the hallway. I He thoughtfully descended the tene- ment stairways, as if he would never climb them again. But he shook off his foolish thoughts and proceeded to the corner grocery. As he bought the bread, he saw a man shuffle unsteadily past the store window. ."That's Father," he sighed and hur- ried out to help him home. .As they approached the tenement, his father demanded of him, "Is the old woman home yet?" "Yes," he answered him as he helped him up the front walk steps. The loaf of bread slipped from under his arm and he stopped to pick it up, while his father shuffled on. An in- describable sensation, perhaps it was only the clutches of the clinging cold, seized him and shook him into a vague terror. The large, heavy moving vans had been emptied. One of them moved ponderously and jounced and jolted to- wards the unusually high curbing and the other followed closely. The front wheels of the truck plunged over the curbing with a jarring joltg a small rattling noise was heard.. And ,it seemed as if a pedestal of the East porch, above which the light of johnis home shone, slipped from its founda- tion. The back wheels of the first and the front wheels of the second truck thudded upon the street pavement sim- ultaneously, the rattling increased to a roar. john straightened up suddenly and saw his father knocked down by fall- ing bricksg the evil half of his soul was delighted to see that part of the scene. And then to his horror he saw the weakened East wall sway and fall with that rattling roar. Then the remain- ing part of the wall, and the East porch also, bent inward and the entire East half of the tenement collapsed with a crash like an avalanche. john dutifully rushed to his father. Alas, he could not reach his mother, she was buried forever by that ava- lanche of bricks and mortar. He helped his father to rise. And that degraded man swayed, steadied Nor' easter? himself, and stood for a moment. looking doubtfully at the wreck, and then realized what had happened. He turned towards his son, placed his hand roughly on the boy's shoulder, and growled, "Cut out th' bawlin'. Yuh make me sick,', and shook him vi- olently. Then he shuffled back up the street to his favorite "soft drink sa- loonf, 1 Iohn's body was still shaking, not from his father's rough treatment, but with suppressed sobs. Presently he shrugged his shoulders and began to pull the wreckage apart, and to show other volunteers where some one of the tenants might be buried-alive or dead. But he knew that his mother was dead-a small, but calm and quiet voice seemed to arise from the secret, unsounded depths of his soul to tell him that he would have to work on without her. As We Consider fEXplanationj 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. EDITOR.

The Haunted House in Hoo-doo Hollow VVILLIAM PHILLIPS 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," suggested John. "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 asleep?" 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 gone I "Pooh! we imagined it,', said John. 13 OF' QHSTQIZ' 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 folds. 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 P DORIS McMILLAN.i I "There's no story that appeals to me as much as a story of mystery and T believe there was never a mystery story that appealed to me as much as that one!" exclaimed Peggy, as she and Virginia entered the house. They were returning from a movie show. "Now, Peg, do you really consider it better than those Conan Doyle- stor- ies you are forever raving about?" "Well, maybe it wasn't as gripping as some of his, but the way that young fellow solved the mystery of the haunted church and caught the bank robbers was wonderful. W3S11,t Char- les Ray perfect, too? You know, daddy, Charles Ray played the part of the young man who discovered the robber's den under the church and the tunnels leading up to the town bank." Daddy had been perusing his evening UGWSPZIPCIB but Peggy's enthusiasm. had called his attention from it. In a few minutes he had heard the story from beginning to end. When Peggy had finished, for Peggy did all the talking, as usual, Virginia being a very quiet girl and possessing none of her sister's boyish pep and enthusiasm, their father acknowledged that the show must have been splendid and regretted that he had not accompanied them. "Your story has brought to my mind a real story which I know, that I think will rival yours in mystery," Dr. johnson presently said. It was not late, so both of the girls threw themselves down on the big divan by the fireplace to hear daddy's mystery story. "I lived, when a boy, in Hillsboro, Illinois," he began. f'Wl1e1i I was about seven years old, the by seen mo aw: out thu thrc able han mui gro whr mer way the as i ing thee wit and the gan in c in t mer "1 4 eng.

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 the thump, thump of the hammer be- gan and the older people would live in curiosity and little boys like myself in terror until the next time govern- ment men paid Hillsboro a visit. "At this time my brother John was engaged to Miss Alice Hinckle. The Hinckles stood very high in Hillsboro. 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 a basement under it as ours had, and 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 he was to come the next night for his answer, and she felt forced to say yesp the reason she could not divulge. "John went the following evening to 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 him. '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 lady of the house then entered and interfered. " 'Let's not have any trouble, boysf she said. ' "With a sneer, Dr. King left the room. .

King might intercept her there. His action was a wise one, for they hail not sat in the little station long until Alice gave a little gasp and her eyes became fixed on the doorway. There stood Dr. King, but he lingered only a moment after john discovered him and then he disappeared into the darkness. "To our wonder, Brother John never married Miss Alice, although I'm sure he loved her. About twenty years af- ter this happened I revisited Hillsboro. our family having moved from there af short time after the Hinckles left. I learned this, to my surprise, concern- ing our old friends, the Hinckles. A room had been found under their home, containing a counterfeiting set com- plete. The mystery of the mammoth hammer that had puzzled the town- folk with its thump, thump, thump had been solved. "It seemed that the old Dr. Hinckle, with Dr. King as an accomplice, had been counterfeiting money in this un- derground room. The two quarreled and Dr. King threatened to betray the old man unless Miss Alice married him. Hillsboro people were astonished to hear that the Hinckles who had won the respect and trust of everyone in the town, were counterfeiters, al- though they believed that Alice had not been a confederate in the crime, but was in reality the pure, sweet girl she seemed to be. Whether the wicked- ness of her family blasted the happi- ness she and John had planned we never knew." Thus ended daddy's mystery story, which both girls pronounced to be a "corker." Lobo HARRY C. HOLMES. 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 master's story. "Yes, boys, Lobo has stayed by me through thick and thin."i As he speaks he caresses the glossy head of the dog at his feet. I Then he continues: "I shan't for- get the winter when he and I bunked in our trapping cabin on Black Cat Mountain. It set in snowing 'long about middle of February and by first of March the mountainsides were blanketed with ten feet of snow. Trap- ping promised to be very fruitful. One morning, with a biting temper- ature, I set out to visit some traps 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 which I had taken special pains in the setting. On drawing nearer to the lit- tle gully where the trap lay hidden, a queer, instinctive sensation warned me to be cautious. Then, when a few paces away, the undergrowth around seemed verily to spring from its root- ing, and out of the thicket charged a gigantic grizzly bear, At a glance I saw his the leg wh this boi vel wa ly C to l der hea ter Fra vain gin trei spii thrc ribl ove nea wa: thii pro hav fori for crie deli of eve kep teri tun 1- -' - f- ' ' ' 3:3-. -:La ..-:-2-g .512692-spew:was-2gi3gg5:geQEL:eiQ:s-Qiimgoj-EQQQQ-igig?.g1iEgiEi"2fS?5:EQnigl5fsLIfgZ-,'lggv-ff.,r-f, P. -'lilifp-1::..: L: -Eg-',-fy . f . , .I ., .Y . . , , ,N ,, ,. np had inckle, ze, had iis un- lrreled ay the fd him. ied to d won one in 's, al- iad not le, but jirl she Jicked- happi- ed we story, J be a Junked :k Cat ' 'long y first were .

The spiked jaws 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, Gy ' 4 Z ' w f W J I f 0 f .M .

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 W WWW Wg. R wg g ff ' S 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 component. cv th ag svx thi so pa l1l'11 no ba th: 4 u lea on tio C?l is cie ap1 of bri tio bir car mo tha sto ant the in the sen I can not che we stic tist like you tak girl hea fing T forf ing - K- '- '- '1' 1 T3 T7 ing, - 13,q,,.r..., .i ap.. .. ., 1 Q.. . , V ,, , , , and ick. ailing I, is gram. :cti-on J AC. go in ,irned the at B f DF. gram gram other wind :ctive Nhich pail is at CX- ward, f DF : sail. ial to g the which indic- to be riving nd to ich is de of wind vever, ie the rf the feithe ective 'M or' easter' 23 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. . . LE ROY SMITH, 125. ' CANDLESTICKS. 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 semi-holiday. 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."

"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 kids now?" 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 experiment. 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 7 I ,f f :f if fx f I ff f X .

Substi- tuting in the equation SIOC-OB for OC and OB, we have S11-AV C12-d2J.

Substituting fl-V C12-d2jfI for S, we have VZVIZ g Q l-VCI?-d2D H, which is the velocity of a pendulum passing through the point C after it has been displaced a distance d. According to Newton's third law of mo- tion Cto every action there is an equal and opposite reactionj, it is evident that the 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 the bullet. Then the velocity of the bullet Qquglg MV!m. Substituting VIZ g -ll- - 1 F ? '14 .f - ' :EEET 2if'fiiF,3.:-? 26 OP' QELSTC-il?

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: Calibre M 1 m d .22 12 lbs. 305 cm. 2.0 g. 2.375 in, .32 12 lbs. 305 cm. 5.5 g. 5.25 in. .38 12 lbs. 305 cm. 9.4 g. 10.5 in. 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 and feet to have the result in feet per sec- ond, or in grams and centimeters to have the result in centimeters per second. The vC1OCity Of the .22 is worked by trigonometry and logarithms, the .32 by 'geometry and logarithms and the .38 by geometry and the usual arithmetrical process.

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. MARTIN DICKINSON. 322. ' OLIN W. MUNGER '22, LE ROY SMITH, '23.

CGNCERNING CHEMISTRY .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 1 1 -. . . . . . . . . . - - - - . ' " ' - ' ' :' ' ' - ' .4Z.. " " "" ": , ..'f'i?1i:'S'EiEiT?ifi7'r -:f:L1?z1f1 'T "" L55 ' 151' ' -:V f - -- ' 23 or' easter 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 spontaneous combustion. 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.

' 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- teresting throughout. 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 . . .. g Y 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 position. 1 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 interest. 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.

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 as follows: ' Q Woii Lost Pct.

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. lfo fiv De On Gr Kc La .lOl Mi fel Do Crz W1 Dei Th.

Its victory over Lawrence of 40-12 inspires us and discourages the future opponents of the High School League. 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 score. The second quarter was full of thrills. 6'Midget" Griggs made many spectacular shots that made the crowd ,--12 ' rn:-' , ' -ai. .,. :gferg f gasp. Denniston clearly showed him- 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' .points to our opponents 3 and the period ended Northeast 33, Lawrence 7. All the substitutes were put in for the final period but lawrence was un- able to accompish much, the final score being as stated above, 40-12, in our favor. Fully .fifteen hundred persons wit- nessed the contest. The Gym was packed with members from all of the High Schools of the city. Harley Selvidge of Manual refereed the game.

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 McDonough of Manual, cellent at ,pulling the ball mage. Northeast looks good up a desperate fight to keep the cham- pionship. lt was conceded by neutrals that George Deniston was the best for- ward on the floor and that Nick Ono- frio promises to hold his own through- out the season. Maurice Koonse played a most effective game and promises to be one of the most level- headed players Northeast has had for some time.

I CIRLS' M AIIHLETIQQS 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 ball. . 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- tories. 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. B. E. HETBEL. MR. NOWLIN, THE NARRATOR. The Northeast Olympic Association recently enjoyed an innovation and re- ceived a treat far better than Eskimo pies or lunch hour, for Mr. Nowlin made at visit and told stories. As a consequence, the girls of that particu- lar organization have had the pleasure of seeing the mercury of learning rise a few degrees. Now indeed, is their wisdom great, for they know what strange mysterious power causes the Y - f-.. -,gr 1.fv..f-g:e:-uf11-:sr:Q'm'it'-L- i- 1 f , :ite -ivTiZ""it-B3 'sfff squirrel's tail to curl its handsome length over the back, how the clever coyote snatched fire from the sung why old cobs may still be unearthed in Alabama and other sundry weighty facts that contribute to the "spice of life." Nor was this "story telling hour" incompatible to the activities of an athletic association. More and more the correlation between mental and physical work is being realized, more and -more are the girls of the N. O. A. working for the recognition of this fact. However, such dry details can- not be dwelt upon when such interest- ing stories as Mr. Nowlin told are to be discussed. Simple as were the Indians, the first inhabitants of our country, their super- stitious stories are not unlike those of the worthy Grecian ancients, whose culture reached a state of enviable magnificence. But having no means of explaining ordinary phenomena, the causes were naturally laid at the doors of the supernatural, and marvelous tales were accordingly concocted. The Indian story of the coyote's snatching fire from the sun as one of the guardians turned her back, and the swift flight and pursuit that en- sued was preceded by the correspond- ing Grecian story. "Reindeer Boy" followed, showing the triumph of good over evil. The swift runner of the "White Villagei' Cthe good one jwas forced to run against the wicked rep- resentative of the Yellow Village with the lives and property of the defeated village as prize.

These are but samples and it is not hard to believe that the greatest wish of the N. O.

If you are in any doubt as to the origin of pep, just visit the Freshman gym classes. There, working like Trojans you'll find us keeping time to the com- mands, "Left-Face! Right-Face! Class Halt. One, Twof' When the class is ended, you and your instructor feel as if you have just come from the soothing influence of a Turkish bath. We are turned from awkward, giggling girls into a silent automatic machine which starts and stops at the command of the machinist. And the result is- pep-'worlds of it, more than we can use. Anybody want some? It is still a question of time Qand the senior's braveryj' until the freshmen are declared the soccer champs. Of course, it is all settled in our minds but we're willing to prove it, Seniors, name your day. Basketball is just in its infancy, but the lookout is brilliant. Track is but a faint glow as yet, but promises to become a crackling flame if properly fanned.

Well, the truth was that I was too tired from playing basketball. That is a funny game. Why do you know I forgot which side I was on and a girl on the opposite side surely did call me down. Well, when I did get the ball I threw it to her and she wouldn't even catch it. Diary dear, the jokes on me. I just asked brother and he said that girl was the referee. Good-nitel Well anyway our side didn't get beaten. The score was 27-24. We were 27. Yours till the score is 40. 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 groceries. 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. VI-IRNA AYERS, '22.

We find these discussions very interest- ino' and beneficial. 5 The purpose of this organized class is to increase the appreciation for latin and Latin classics among the members of the class. lt is our further resolution to better the condition of order during our as- semblies.

The Northeast Mathematics Club held its election of officers in room 203 on january l2th, 1922. Though the Mathematics Club has done nothing so far this year along social activities, it is planning for a dance this spring. lt may also be added that the club is applying itself more to the science of mathematics this year than ever before. ' ' ' ' "7 V : iq ' 35' 1i:5aii: iGie-f+74i3"2iI, 54-71 42 or' easter "DOIN'S." 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 Christian Church the following officers were elected to pilot the club through the second semester: President ............................ Wallace Wood Vice-President ............ Stanley Ruhlman Secretary ,,.....,............,.. ...... Warren Cook Treasurer ............................ ROla11d Sharp Wlallace Woods has a vision of what the club can mean to Northeast and asks that every fellow who is inter- ested in the High School Club get in the organization and work. Didn't everybody like James Pick- ering's wonderful "Bells" he had on the night of the Lawrence game? The crowd seemed to enjoy the joke per- fectly. -We mean the "bells,,' not james. , On January 5 and 6, Mr. Nowlin had such a bad cold that he had to give written recitations, and they were written by ia few who had their les- sons. But that wasn't the worst. On the night of January 6, Northeast played Lawrence and everyone missed Mr. Nowlin's hearty vocal support. Everyone was sorry that he could not express his barbaric appreciations of the game, but we all heard him on Monday morning in classroom. The Northeast Camp Fire groups had a ceremonial meeting at Northeast High School the night of January 23, 1922. lt was a quite interesting meet- ing for all, especially for those to whom Camp Fire was formerly un- known. Here is another thing for us to be proud about. Northeast has the onlv class of Greek H in the Kansas City public schools.

The work is pro- ceeding nicely and Mr. Chapin expects the class to be reading connected Crreek in Xenophorfs '6Anabasis" soon. Mr. Chapin has promised that he will see all who wish through two years of Greek. Cn December 9 the faculty gave a mixer for the juniors and seniors. Mr. VVolfe was present and showed us a few new steps. He also had us really mix around and not dance with the same partner all the time. Many seniors claimed that this is the first real mixer that 'has been given in Northeast for two years. 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- teresting talk. Miss Kelly, a graduate 43 lightful lecture. The John Taylor Dry Goods Company sent out a very attrac- tive exhibit to illustrate another talk. Really, not even the most elevated "highbrow" can doubt the real interest and practical value of this department, for it has a direct bearing on the life of any girl. "We may live without doctors, law- yers anc books, But civilized man cannot live without A cooks." . Mr. Nowlin has a book which every high school student should read. lt is on school etiquette. It seems that the steps from the front corridor to the entrance are a little slick for some people. Several have fallen down at the most inappro- priate moments. Miss Lockwood says that boys who sit in boxes at the basketball games are cakes. At least, only cakes sit in them. Then, some are cakes we never nurse from Mercy Hospital, gave a de- suspected.

We hope they will convince the judges in the debates as well as they did us. ,Ll..-- Mr. Chapin has ruled in the first hour Virgil class that those who are tardy must read the entire lesson. "Does it work?', you ask. just inquire of Mr. Chapin, we ask. On Friday, january 13, a Pep Assem- bly was held. Everybody enjoyed it and used their lungs, almost to the satisfaction of even the cheer leaders. The University of Kansas is going to offer a course in I COPY EDITING AND NEWS SUP- ERVISIDN next summer if there are enough en- rolled for the course. The course would include the study of methods used in preparing copy for publication, practice in editing, ques- tions of style, writing headlines, make up, direction of the student newspaper, organization and conduct of a course in journalistic writing. The emphasis would be placed on such of these, or other subjects as might best meet the needs of the class. The course would carry three hours College or Graduate credit. . ' Mrs. Lockwood collects books dis- carded by the students about the time of the mid-year exams and then, after the pupils have flunked, they hunt up their books and Mrs. Lockwood hands them to their owners. We all thank Mrs. Lockwood for her watchfulness and thoughtfulness. There are a few new secret clubs around these parts that need names to fit to their initials, such as the W. W., which might be translated Honorable Wild Women, or the S. W. K., which might equal Squirm When Kissed. Perhaps L. M. G. is supposed to mean Love Men, Girls. 4 ,- msotarr ll, The Sequoia Camp Fire group gave a luncheon at the Muehlebach and a box party at the Grpheum on December 28, 1921. ' il. T-he Delphian Literary Society gave the entire school a mixer january 19, 1922. From the number of couples on the floor and the fewness of those "sitting out," one can judge its success. Gn the evening of December 31, the Misses Adele Setzler and Ruth Hogan gave a watch party for about thirty of their friends. Everyone enjoyed a royal good time, especially about the first few moments of the new year, when delicious refreshments were served. I , ... . The Alphas from Northeast, tl1e Pundits from Westport and the Aris- tonians from Central entertained with the annual Alpha-Pundit-Aristonian tea at 4:30, on Friday, january. 27, in the Colonial Room of the Hotel Mueh- lebach.

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. .i,...... 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. .T-ii. 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 society. Lee Biggs has had a short story dealing with principles of physics ac- cepted by a science magazine. Con- gratulations, Lee. We WHAT THEW if WIND new IN- gill Speaking of crowds, from the fol- lowing local in one of our exchanges, their games must be something like ours. "Stop pushing me that way. I've got a permanent wave in my back already." 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 year? 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? - ---w -'-'f-mfgfm - .v .- Eali- SOCIETIES c Debater. A President ,,---,,..,,,A,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,. ,,.... F rancis Teel Vice-President ..... .....

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- changed. "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- come." "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- tions. "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 apparel. "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 December 15 "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-.,- ' r g--...-' f fl ' --'l"'T ' F1125 "ZLL .-'.Q.:-aiY.,T2i-efgfi 3532 t-Ebafl.-5:-' ' : ""' K M ,,,,,,,,,.T,..,,. ,.,a-ki,-,,., , J 4- as-11 nf-.:.. --Qg1v,,a51",....a..3'.-1'-A4--'------ 'LQ .I :il ,, : - ' - fs YJ Y ' J: - -,4,.,rA 'M -- - 56 OF' 861511-El?

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.

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- istry appear to lead her., onward to heights as yet undreamed, and the question still unanswered, -"Where would chemistry be today, if the early investigators could have given a cor- rect explanation of the true nature of P!!
