We, the class of June, 1922, having completed the. required number of
hours. necessary for our graduation from this institution, and realizing that

of our knowledge to the 9B class with the hope' that they may make the
same good recordsf?j as we have made. n
Signed this twelfth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand

THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1922.
A strong desire to know the future fate
And coming lot of many classmates dear
Raged in my heart, did not abate
Till in my sleep there came a white-robed seer,
Who did my wish and its fulfillment mate,
Speaking in winged words and faint to hear:
"O, youth, the heavy veil of time to come
Is forced to life at such a strong desireg
This crystal ball is agent fit to some,
Seek its depths with all your youth's most ard
I gazed, and slowly saw those depths become
A milky cloud, hiding the portent dire.
From crystal depths with cloud besmeared
A white-walled room had now appeared,
'Twas the insi.de of a barber shop-
Shining shoes was Joseph Coppg
Ne.arby, beside a barber's chair,
Bobbing a fair young damsel's hair,
With waxed mustache and manner mild
Stood Francis Bowen,'our angel child,
Beneath his skillful scissors fall
The locks of actress Orpha Doll,
'Midst other barbers gathered round
Don Smith and Russel Coe were found,
While the head barber, Walt O'Neil,
Delivered strong his usual spielg
Jack Milligan was in demand
As best man at the bootblack's stand,
And manicurists I did see
Miss Betty Fikes and Kay Van Hee
The porters who did brush each suit
Were Leo Frank and Richard Fruit,
To make the razor's victims worse
Stood Doris Brown, official nurse,
Trying hard to stop the many yelps
Ofl Richard Young and Benny Phelps
And as I longed much more to learn
The scene closed with the clouds' return.
T H E V I K I N G
From White the globe then changed to blue
Bringing the ocean into view,
By only sky and sea impaled,
The liner Barlow swiftly sailed,
Bearing on maiden voyage fine
J. Dunton, himself, who owned the line.,
While in the captain's cabin high
James Lightbody I did espy,
And by his side so willed the fate,
Donald Dunram, the first mateg
Bernstein and Tigel in the hold
As pursers were counting the gold,
Marjorie Jenks of the dancing fleet
Was Mrs. --li' in the lgridal suite,
The chambermaids whom she did hire
Were Achsah Dibley and Dora Dyhrg
ln the kitchen Miss Ruth I-Iirschman,
Lucille Howes, Marcia Putnam,
Helen Dempster, and Agnes Crooks,
With Yetta Safran, all were cooks!
The tips to waitress Kate Guiness
Made the gentlemen's purses less,
While Estelle North and Vinnie Wood
With Beulah Miller served the food,
And giving little pills away
Walked the ship's doctor, Robert Grayg
Seated at a rich man's side
Was Althea Busch, a blushing bride,
Ethel Flanders, Helen Hilton,
Ruth Raymond, Margaret Nixon,
Marian Murray and Vera Maude
Neville, were teachers going abroad,
In the wireless room donning phones
Were Ethel Moore and Alta Jonesg
Sailors Scroggins and Thelma Scratch
Were seen emerging from a hatch,
And in the engine room, the boss
Was the chief engineer, Grace Ross,
Ferris Lewis, jimmy Casey,
Kenneth Wickware, Benny Dempsey,
Did heavy labor, shoveling coal
Into the gaping furnace hole.
Now when on deck and sea came dark
Lovers then began to spark.
Frank Wilcox, still an ardent swain,
Woos Winifred, and not in vain,
With other Hmashersu gathered there

While among the girls the belles
VVere Olive Hawke and Helen XVells,
And as all scenes should close with bliss,
This one ends with a lover's kiss,
For here the cloud refilled the ball,
Like the fadeout in a movie hall.
T H E V I K I N G
The ball cleared.
At the Hotel de Luxe I stayed,
Delicious dishes there I craved.
It was a spiffy, splendid place
Where many a host a guest would chase.
Every person I chanced to meet
Seemed familiar, e'en on the street.
I passed Ruth Armstrong-that sailing air-
Happy with a millionaire!
Going into dinner whom should I face?
Thelma Babington, lady of Italian grace.
And my! before I raised my fan,
I saw Arthur Bailey, quiet-a self-possessed man
Presently Aimee Eliel came up
With golf sticks and a silver cup.
Following her Eleanor Bodewig, the same,
On a convention of some great game.
We all joined hands and went together
To see Dorothy Goodrich dance "The Heather."
I went from there into the hall
A trim, slim man, oh, very tall!
An actor-in great oratory,
'Twas Russel Smith in sumptuous glory.
I betook my feet quickly on,
Owena Gaffney was playing a song,
A charming lady, dear, enticing,
I-Ier fingers hit those. keys like lightning.
To my right I answered, "Oni,"
Ethel Moore exclaimed "C'est glee!"
She was there to study French:
If I were she, I'd want a trench.
Ifhe air was brimming full of song,
A maid, with ices, tripped along.
Celia Chilman in a fine, lace cap.
She'd make a tasty, stylish snap.
Right near me stood a gentleman.
James England, a camera fan,
He grew famous in photographiesg
He catered to celebrities.
In a high upholstered chair,
Sat Frances Geller-niece to an heir.
She was reading in an old folio
Of missionaries to Tokio.
At a table playing cards
Sat Bill Evans, a man of hearts!
In the doorway called a preacher,
Robert McKnight a social teacher!
I was glad that I had come, '
For I had surely met a sum.
Then the cloud returned.

Again the mystic crystal clears
And lo! Before my eyes appears
An ice cream parlor of much renown
With excellent trade from all the town.
The waiters dressed in black and white
I recognize about at sight,-
Bob Buick, Mead, and Jennie Kiely,
With Quinton Sproule, serve trade daily.
Behind the counter I do see
Bob Newman, Gordon Daugherty,
Frank Vazzana. Charlotte Guthard,
Selling candy, working hard.
And who should the owner be
But our friend, Alice Van Heel
Charles Oakman, manager, stands near
Bemoaning the fate of long-lost beer,
The customers to whom he turns
Are Jean Aiken, Robison Burns,
Dorothy Dystra, and Elise Harris,
just returned from a trip to Paris.
Truman Conrad, Odell Fisher
Arthur Oxford, and Jack Baker,
In African golf did there compete,
To purchase shoes for baby's feet.
Here the grayish cloud so mean
Did end my joy, blot out the scene.
The veil now for a fifth time rent
Showed the inside of a circus tent.
Selling peanuts Mildred Vedder,
Alice Tyler, Howard Neufer,
Alice Rich, and Hazel VVhitley,
Did perform their task quite fitly.
Taking tickets at the door
Were Mellen and Kate St. Amour.
Overseeing the ticket sale
Was Louis Friedman, collecting "kale."
The best in all the show, a clown,
Was recognized as Nathan Brown.
Louise Kinmont, Lila McEmber,
Irene Pallister, Beulah Miller,
With Ruth Lentz and Henry Zajac
From a stand sold Cracker jack
Those who lightly walked a wire
Were Misses Levitan and Shier.
Bareback riders then came forth,
Virginia Owen, Frances North,
Alice Tyler, and Ruth Stanley,
All of whom rode merrily.
And while still more I did recall
The milky cloud refilled the ball.
The Class Play
ORTHERNS annual IZA Revue, which was given on the evenings of
Friday, june 2, and Saturday, june 3, in the auditorium, by the coni-
paratively small audiences which attended.
Of e.special note were the plays that were offered by the Dramatic Art
class and the "Operalogues" by Mr, and Mrs. Searle. The program on the
first night was too long. so that on the second night it was shortened to a
The program as a whole was well presented, and all the acts ran along
smoothly. "Clothes Make the VVoman" was the interesting act, with a
good many helpful suggestions for the girls and Mr. Hudson. The dances
offered by the department of Physical Education were exceedingly popular
with the audience of both evenings. The Scotch dancing was particularly
interesting. The R. O. T. C., though handicapped by the omission of part
of the act, was good. The Domestic Science department gave a health show.
All through the revue the orchestra "done noble work," under the direction
of Mr. Searle. Mrs. Green may be complimented on the. Way she handled
the production, both before and during its promulgation.
The General Knowledge Test
OW many legs has a Patagonianf' seemed to be the main stumbling-
block on the General Knowledge Test given to Seniors on April 17,
The test, taken by all members of the 12A class, was compiled and
given by Miss Alice M. Corns, principal of House 207.
A Patagonian must be an interesting sight. Several of the answers
given were most ridiculous. "A Patagonian has eight legs, sixteen legs,
as many legs as God gave him," were some of the funniest. One boy, evi-
dently of the opinion that a Patagonian is a new specie of centipede, stated
that "the exact number of a Patagonian's legs is not known. There are
too many to count."
Fifty-six in the class did not know Babe Rut,h's batting average. QThe
fifty-six were probably boys.j
A large number had done so much geometry and algebra that fractions
were forgotten, unless we have a budding mathematic genius in Northern.
According to the mathematics we studied 1-8 and 3-16 does not equal 5-32.
On the whole, the percentage was high, the majority getting above 80
per cent. The questions were very general and covered all branches of
education: mathematics, history, English, and geography. I
The twelve highest percentages were:

The Thrill Hunt
IANA had gone a-hunting. True, she did not look the part, she had
no weaponsg not even concealed ones, but then Diana was not out
A very determined goddess of the chase she was. She sternly told her-
self that something was wrong, yes, very decidedly wrong. Why couldn't
she, Diana Pennington, write good stories any more?
Diana's mind ran on adventurous lines, and naturally adventure was
the thing she most enjoyed writing about. But it is a safe rule for amateurs
to write only of things they know, and in Diana's normal, mildly pleasant,
American school-girl existence, nothing especially adventurous or wildly
thrilling had happened. So how, I ask you, could Diana write of Life and
Adventures, fwith capital A's and L's respectivelyj if she knew compara-
tively nothing about them. How could she, I ask you! However, she at-
tempted it. Unfortunately for Diana she had forgotten the "Safe Rule for
Amateurs," or at any rate she chose to ignore it. The result was that when
she turned in a story to the school magazine, though they always accepted
it, no freshman would come rushing up, after the magazine had been pub-
lished, and gasp, thrilled to death, "Oh, Diana, how do you write things like
that! I couldn,t do it if I had to. What I like is the true way it sounds.
It's just like things that really happen." QOf course, that kind of thing
gets monotonous, but it's mighty pleasant in moderation.j Now some.one
merely says, "Nice story, Diana. You're right there with the lingo! Regilar
word-slinger!" There was no denying it, her stories didn't ring true. Diana
was afraid they weren't thrilling enough. The truth was they were too wild
VVhen she first began writing, she had been afraid to use her imagina-
tion. She had remembered the rule, and had done little skits of high school
life-little things, but immensely successful. She had studied people. For
instance, at a dance, she would sit out with a boy and listen raptly to his
every word. Little did he know that when she murmured, "Yes, yes, go on,
this is so interesting!" she meant more than the words implied. She was
probably thinking, "What a perfect joke he is! He'd be rare as the fool in
my next story, 'A Fool There Was.' I hope he goes on babbling, he's so
intriguing. Let's see--his conceited, cock-sure, boastful, sneering-ugh!
he's too delicious!" She was always doing that, dissecting people and
pickling them in ink. They didn't recognize themselves in her stories.
CThat type wouldn't.Q
It was Saturday. She decided to go to the park. Things happened in
parks. People drowned themselves in creeks and fountains, and shot them-
selves behind bushes, and left unwanted infants there, and people were
held up, and conspirators concocted dastardly plans, and then there were
always the lovers.
So she walked along the paths, avoiding the more public places. Nothing
happened at first, but then Diana knew she couldn't expect tragedy and
sudden death to be manufactured for her benefit. She must search and
have patience. She sat down for a moment on a bench, and then through
the bushes she heard a voice talking tensely.
"You say the child is in London? It is a lie! No matter how I know,
but I swear it is the truth. Listen, give me fifty pounds and I will betray
all, but remember-Hark! I hear footsteps! It is the Count. Hide, and
draw your dagger."
Silence after this, and the.n a low sigh. "Pretty goodf' thought Diana.
"Treason and kidnapping!" She waited. Nothing happened. So, slowly
and cautiously she parted the bushes. There on a bench sat a man of per-
haps thirty. a very handsome young man. and with a face oddly familiar.
What surprised Diana most was that he was alone. Whom could he have
been talking to? Oh, she had it! The other person was hiding, Hadn't
someone said, "Hide and draw your dagger?" Perhaps the Count would
come soon and then she would be "in at the death" for a certainty. Diana
wasn't cold-hearted. She simply watched and waited for a murder as if
she were seeing a play.
Suddenly the man jumped to his feet and began to dance wildly around.
stabbing the air. Then he clasped his hand to his heart and dropped to the
ground like a stone.
"He must be offr his crumpetf' thought Diana. "He is! I know he is!
Insane people talk to themselves and caper around."
just as she came to this conclusion, the man got up and seated himself
calmly on the bench, and another man came through the bushes and joined
The new comer exclaimed, "Hello, Pearson! VV.hat are you doing here.
all by your lonesome?"
"Oh, just rehearsing lines from my new play. Don't like it. Too like
a dime-thriller. Takes something new to interest modern audiences."
lt was Morton Pearson, the most popular stage. villain, and he had been
rehearsing to himself! Diana went on. Perhaps she'd better be content
with some of the lovers on the benches. So she strolled along the bench-
lined paths, picked a couple at random, and parked herself at the end of
At first they didn't talk, but at length litful snatches of conversation
crept over to her. She placed them at once-Bowery types. The girl spoke
"Say, I was out with a real swell feller last night. Some class to his
tonneau, l'l1 say."
"Sure it wasn't me?"
"You! Dere's rats in your rafters! Say, if you was to spring a wad

"Aw, cut it! What're you always handin' me de mean an' nasty for?
You gotta hand it to me, fur being a wise lil guy, an' right dere wit de pep,
even if the silvery mon don't glide my way."
"I was only kiddin', jerry! You're a good lil fellerg I like you fine."
Interesting, but not quite what Diana wanted. Should she try again?
Three strikes an out! Diana had had two, so she guessed she'd have another
trip, and besides, three is a lucky number. So she journeye.d onward, this
time in a lonlier path. There were no people on this path, and Diana was
about to turn back. Then she heard a cry!
There beside a bench lay an infant of about six months, wailing lustily.
Diana ran to it. Evidently it was hungry. No one was in sight. To Diana.
the conclusion was obvious-it was discarded, an abandoned baby. Diana
meant to mentally catalogue the child--evidently of American parentage.
healthy, well-dressed, clean-but here her meditations were interrupted by
another howl from the infant's cast-iron lunge. What should she do with
it? She rather thought it would be a good idea to take it home with her
to study it at close range for the story.
She stood abstractedly gazing at the child when something happened
to upset her calm and peace of spirit. A woman ran out of the bushes,
dashed to the baby, clasped it in her arms, and gurgled in infanteeze, "Oo,
Muzzer's pwecious lambikinsl Wusum's cwying! Did um's want um's
Muzzer! Yes, was time for 'ittle darlin's bottle, yes it was, yes!" Then to
herself, "Where on earth has that nurse girl gone! Probably Hitting with
a policeman. The idea of leaving my precious angel alone! He might have
been kidnapped!" CDiana recognized the symptoms. The woman was evi-
dently the infant's motherj Then, catching sight of Diana, she said, "Why
didn't you give Joey his bottle? It's right there in the basket. Didn't you
see that he was hungry and that his nursemaid was gone?"
B-r-r-r! How could Diana explain that, for art's sake, she was more
interested in the child's exterior than in his internal workings and what
they might need. She simply couldn't say that to an enraged parent, Even
Diana hadn't the nerve. Very young parents are so unreasonable, somehow.
So she struck her colors and retreated doublequick.
By this time, Diana was intensely in sympathy with the writer of those
famous words, "Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home." It seemed
a long time since she had seen its Dutch Colonial outlines. So she set out
for there, in a desperate state of mind. Ye Gods! Was there no true. ro--
mance in the world! If so, where was it hiding? Personally, Diana felt it
had died a lonely and neglected death.
VV'hen she had dragged her weary bones up the steps and onto the porch,
she saw, to her de.light, five or six trunks, plastered with foreign labels-
Cousin Charlie was there. Yes, yes, there was romance in this world:
Charlie was there! Charlie was back from one of his self-imposed, person-
ally-conducted tours of the world, in the company of some of his delightful
pals, his trunks filled with marvels. The chums were all just like Charlie.
with devil-may-care attitudes, and stout hearts and a sense of humor apiece,
to back the.m up and help them out of their numerous scrapes. But then it
was easy for Charlie to live up to his motto of "Do as you please, and pay
the pricefl for Charlie had the price, if by price you mean the coin.
This time Charlie had an unusually abundant crop of adventures. He
told them all, and when he ran out of true stories, he made some up. fBut
then, you see, it was all right for Charlie to draw on his imagination, for he
was no amateur-he knew what he was fibbing about. Marvelous 'stories
they were-tales of Spain, Egypt, Italy, India, China, Japan, the South
Seas, Alaska-globe-encircling stories.
No. it came to Diana that Charlie knew what kind of story he told best,
and stuck to it-the things he knew best. That was why he was so success-
ful, and Diana knew that for' the present she must stick to the things she
knew best, and when she was no longer an eaglet, but a full-fledged king
of birds, she could soar on the wings of her imagination. So she went to
work and wrote little things--brief sketches-clever and true to life, and
once again she heard, "How do you do it! So true to life, Diana !" vibrating
through the air.

The Comic Valentine
RS. CAREY and Mrs. Thorne had for many years been neighbors in
the village, their houses facing across a narrow, graveled street,
and as good neighbors had been bosom friends. A dozen times a
day they would cross that street, gingerly lifting their long, black skirts,
and laboriously stepping from one stone to the next in order to keep out ot
the dust or the mud, according to the season of the year. Whenever Mrs.
Thorne saw Mrs. Casey returning from town, she. was sure to slip over to
hear the gossip, which was always plentifully supplied with the most satis-
factory details, or if Mrs. Thorne had been up the street to call on Mrs.
Key, she was invariably visited on her return by Mrs, Carey. And so the
years had pleasantly jogged along while the families of both had grown to
Mrs. Carey used to say, after her daughter-in-law had taken possession
of the greater part of the house, "Well, I don't know hardly what I'd do
now if 'twuzn't for Miz Thorne. She's sich a comfortable body to set an'
talk to." Likewise Mrs. Thorne, when her two boys developed more intere.st
in the one garage of the town than they had in their home, would say, as
she deeply sighed and resolutely rocked back and forth ove.r a red carpet
and a squeaky board, "Miz Carey's a woman you kin depend on. Her
an' me've bin friends for twenty-two years, an' we've exchanged coffee. an'
sugar an' prescriptions for bilyus attacks an' other ailments durin, all that
time. Now that her son's wife's took her house over an' my boys ain't
keerin' much for their'n, I don't know's how I could very well git along
Time went on, bringing the deaths of Mr. Carey and Mr. Thorne, by
the respective routes of pneumonia and suicide! In their grief, the two
women consoled one another and seemed inseparably attached.
And then, on the fourteenth of February one year, Mrs. Carey received
a comic valentine! It was a lurid thing, the picture of a pathetic idiot with
a large, bulbous nose projecting horribly blue above a bristly lip and cav-
ernous, red mouth! The limerick below the figure, designed to set forth the
creature's lack of charm, would have made a Caliban shed tears.
And Mrs. Carey did indeed weep! For nearly an hour she sat with the
repulsive thing in her lap, desperately concealing it with both hands widely
spread out upon it. She felt the deepest shame, as if she must foreve.r hide
her own countenance even as she was covering this hideous thing before
her. At last, wiping her eyes with her briny handkerchief, she. gathered up
the paper and dragged herself across the street to Mrs. Thorne's.
"Why, Mag Carey," the good woman exclaimed, "what in the world's
the matter? You've been cryin', 't looks like. Your nose is right blue."
"Now don't shame me about my blue nose, Lizzie Thornef' Mrs. Carey
blurtedg "somebody else has went and done that. Look here what come in
this mornin's mail what I thought wuz a letter."
Weeping anew, she hauled forth the valentine from the Pocket of her
waist. But instead of greeting it with sympathetic tears, Mrs, Thorne burst
into a loud shout of ridiculous laughter. She held it out at arm's length and
laughed afresh at each angle from which she. viewed it.
"That's a good one, Mag. My soul, but ain't the critter homely!"
"Lizzie Thorne," hotly exclaimed Mrs. Carey, "I didn't come over here
to ,have you burlesque me. I come for sympathy from a friend, and I get
"Well, Mag, it's worth laughin' at. Whut'd you cry for? I declare,
your nose did look somethin' like this whe.n you come in a while ago."
"Lizzie Thorne," shrieked Mrs. Carey frantically, "I ain't a-goin' to take
nothin' from you. I'm hurt too bad as 'tis. You sent me that thing yourself."
"Law no, I didn't, Mag. Now don't get mad over a little thing like that."
"It ain't no little thing, an' I'd 'a' thought you'd 'a' had more respect for
me than send a thing like that. You said my nose wuz blue soon's I come in."
"Now, Mag," cautioned Mrs. Thorne, "I didn't send that, an' don't say
that I did. Throw the measly thing in the fire an' forget itf'
"I'm goin' to give it right back to you where it come from, that's what
I'm going to do," and into Mrs. Thorne's face she Hung it and then marched
stiffly out of the house and across the street.
But Mrs. Thorne was not to be so treated. Quickly she snatched up
the offensive thing and followed Mrs. Carey's retreating figure into her own
house where the quarrel raged. The one-time friends grew more angry
with each succeeding sentence, until the whole neighborhood was aroused
by their high-pitched voices, and Mrs. Carey's daughter-in-law was com-
pelled to put Mrs. Thorne forcibly out of the house.
Mrs. Thorne departed, leaving the wretched cause of war a miserable
crumple of paperr in the middle of the floor. Mrs. Carey picked it up. 'Tm
going to send it back through the mail," she announced.
And then Uncle Sam played a game of shuttle-cock that lasted for
almost a year, for the valentine went daily through the mail from the
Carey's box to the Thorne's, until the postmaster recognized the two hand-
writings and could juggle the missive into its proper box without thinking.
The whole town knew of the quarrel, and a mischievous, freckled-faced lad
laughed secretly whenever he heard tidings of the warfaring valentine which
he had sneaked at the ten-cent store and had sent to a woman whom he
remembered as having chased him out of her apple tree the summer before.
Everyone worried about the break in the relations of the two good
ladies.- The pastor of the church to which both belonged made serious calls
and pleaded with them to be re.conciled. Nothing moved them, however, for
they refused to speak at church, which they still attended regularly. But
they did speak, and loudly, too, whenever by chance they sighted one another
on their respective front porches, And not until the summer passed and an
early frost drove people inside did the battle cease and the neighborhood
get relief from the rattle of the verbal machine guns.
The postmaster, daily compelled to transmit the valentine, cursed forc-
ibly. If it had once failed to carry the stamp he would have destroyed it.
In his difficulty he questioned the inspector who came one. day, but the in-
spector saw the fun of it and told him that his duty was to see that every
properly addressed piece of mail reached its destination. So, with a sigh of
resignation, he shot the abominable thing into one box and then the other
as often as it appeared in the. office, and that happened daily.
At length a change came about, suddenly, one Sunday at church. It
was the custom of the congregation to receive communion at the altar, and
to move devoutly from their pews to the front of the church during the

The Lake Country
She was born in the lake country,
And the wash of blue-green water
Filled her heart with its rhythm,
And made her the Great Lakes' daughter
Now I was born in the lake country,
But I never loved them so,
I have eyes for places I've traveled,
And a heart for the folks I know.
But she was one of the creatures
With strangely different mind,
Who loved the wind and the water
More than her human kind.
They took her away to the city,
But her heart was back and away
Into the Great Lakes country,
'Hearing the waves all day.
There is Huron, impetuous, brilliant,
With purples and blues and greens
Strong and de.ep and childlike,
With swiftly changing scenes,
There is Erie, mild but treacherous,
Without great Huron's chill,
Where one, in her warmer water,
May bathe and swim at will.
There is Michigan, stern, majestic,
A vast heart deeply stirred
By huge, slow, hard-voiced bre.akers,
Or still as a sleeping bird.
She heard their different voices,
She saw their foamy swell,
Away in the heart of the city-
She who had loved them well.
They buried her there in the city,
And her heart had rest at last,
And now it's the lakes are calling
i For her whose love is past.
I hear the strong waves moaning,
And the low, despairing rain-
She would have loved to hear them,
But now they cry in vain.
O Kid McCune's," I said to the patrolman, a florid man with a spherical
tendency along the waistline.
"Yes. Dammit! Kid McCune's," grunted the amiable Mr. Se.ymour.
The gentleman drank in winter because it was cold and he drank in
summer because it was hot.
"What good is it to be a Reserve, I'd like to know, if every know-it-all
college guy can come along any minute and send a man out-chasin' foot-
"Finger prints," I corrected, and added with evil intent, "Yes, the only

"Haven't seen The Kid in a long time. Thought he'd quit the game."
"Yes, but this is an old job of The Kid's," I answered. "Didn't you hear
Blucher and Jack talking?"
"Naw. What did they say?"
"Two years ago a job was pulled on Burlingame Avenue. No one
" 'Twas The Kid, his last job," Seymour growled.
"So we all thought," I continued. "Clarkie handled the case and took
some things for evidence, among them a Chinese Joss, carved in jade. Well,
the stuff lay there in headquarters until this summer, when this finger print
expert comes along,
"Sure I know he ruined your siesta. He's done more than that, though.
He found finger prints on this carving for says he didj, and photographed
them. These prints are of a man's right hand and were not made by any
member of the family that was robbed or by any person who has handled
the carving since. So that leaves it up to the burglar-in other words-
McCune. Thus it is that we go forth this bright summer day to arrest the
finger prints of Kid McCune's right hand."
"It's a blithering shame!" Seymour ejaculated.
"Why so bad?" I asked. -
It was blistering hot weather. The sweating elements of the Melting
Pot swarmed thick around us, obeying, each in his way, the will of the
Great Chemist. They laughed, snarled, sung, and fought around us, gave in
marriage, bought and sold, died, lived-and smelled.
It was blistering hot weather. Seymour's red face and blue nose dived
in and out a limp handkerchief like a red-headed duck dipping for water
celery. While thus submerged he slipped on a banana peel, lost dignity and
balance, recovered both, and cursed the sweltering city in sweltering words
of seven languages that I knew and six that I didn't.
"And why it is a shame if Kid MoCune gets his?" I asked again.
"Aw, it's no way to cat a man, not a man like The Kid it's not. He's the
best jimmy shaker in this burg. It's many a night I've chased The Kid-
and nearly got him, too--before they made me a Reserve."
"That's no reason why we shouldn't take him," I replied.
"Aw, grab ,him in a raid some night. Get him without an alibi. Catch
him red-handed. Let him go out with his boots on, Ching gods and finger-
prints! And besides he's married, too."
"The deuce you say! Who---. When-"
"Sadie Callie. Two years ago, when the chorus girls struck."
I remembered the Callie girl and felt a sudden thingle of sympathy for
her husband, knowing that girls of her stamp make the best of wives when
"Any children?" I asked.
"Sure, One. A boy."
"Too bad," I said. Later, "Looks like we've got him, though."
"Looke like it. He's a good one, the boy is. Can't pronounce my name.
He gets the 'Sey' out all right but blurs on the 'mourf Calls me 'Sey-moo.' "
He added a moment later.
6'God, but it's hot! Hope The Kid has something cool.',
"VVe,re almost there, ar'n't we?" I asked.
"Yes, here's the place," said Seymour, turning in at a house.
I was young, believed in the magic of a gun, and carefully inspected
mine. Seymour calmly approached the door and rang the bell. It was an-
swered by Kid McCune himself, impassive, tiger-lithe and thirty. As though
we were brothers in for a casual afternoon call, he quietly explained that
his wife was out and led the way to a cool sitting-room. His right hand
and arm were covered by a dressing gown wrapped carelessly around him.
The conversation as desultory-baseball, politics, the weather and such.
He had not shown the guilty handy poor devil, I pitied him.
Speaking of the weather seemed to remind our host that it was a hot
day outside, for he rose and began tinkering with boxes, bottles, and glasses
in a cabinet.
He passed a box of cigars--with his left hand-took one himself, bit OH
the end of it and lit it-with his left hand.
He seemed to be keeping the right member out of sight in his dressing
gown and to avoid bumping it against anything, I was getting a little
nervous about that concealed hand. I wondered if he had a gun in it. It
promised to be a rather unpleasant business to arrest him if he did.
MeCune began putting glasses and bottles on the table, still working
Finally Seymour said, "What's wrong with the right wing, Kid?"
. "An accident," The Kid replied.
"Window fall on it?"
"No, My car turned over with me."
"Not so much. Smashed up a little below the elbow. 'Bout well now."
"Can't use your hand, can you?"
"Well-not exactly. What will you drink, Seymmie?"
"Couldn't the doctors fix up your hand? I'll take Scotch, Kid."
"Well, they did the best they could."
"What did they do?"
"Amputated. How will you have it, Seymmie?"
"I'll drink mine straight, Kid."

Cupid of the Test-tube
T was September, that month of sapphire lakes, azure skies, golden-rod,
hay fever, and jangling school bells. These latter were calling John
Hammond to begin his second year as a teacher of chemistry in Spring-
wells. On this first morning of the term, he approached his duties with a
feeling of reluctance mingled with nervous apprehension. He had come
back not because he wished to, but because he dreaded to seek a new posi-
tiong new places, new associations, new faces terrified him. He had made
few friends in Springwells, but at least the town had a familiar look.
Hammond was unusually tall, and this excessive height he carried awk-
wardly. His shoulders stooped, he walked with great strides, and his large
hands swung pendulum-wise. With high cheek-bones and a sharp nose, his
face was saved from ugliness only by his kind dark eyes and sensitive lips.
He looked different from other men, and his consciousness of this difference
had given him a manner which his acquaintances knew not whether to
ascribe to timidity or to indifference.
In truth, diffidence was but a shield behind which his nature shrank
from contacts which he feared yet desired. Having felt the pangs of loneli-
ness all his life, john Hammond wanted friends passionately, but he was
like a ship in distress whose signaling apparatus is impaired, To the greet-
ings of those whom he most wanted to know, he could re.turn only a con-
ventional phrase, his vocal organs refusing to shape another syllable.
The first school day was almost pleasant. Several of his former students
came in to say hello, and there was the excitement incident to beginning.
John had taken his former lodgings, and he spent the late hours of the
afternoon settling his things in their familiar places. It was with a heart
almost joyful that he entered the dining-room and shook the hands of Mr.
Pent and Mr. Grunaw, whom he had known the preceding year. But there
were two empty places at the table which John eyed suspiciously. Several
minutes later two young women entered and seated themselves. For an
eternity there was silence.
Then Mrs. Ryan bustled in and introduced them. She was a Horid-faced,
generously proportioned person, who radiated affability. She ended with,
"Mr. Hammond, I'd like for you to meet Miss Williams and Miss Brown.
You three are all teachers and livin' under the same roof, so you oughta be
real friendly." She beamed complacently.
"Pleased to meet you," mumbled Hammond, inarticulately. He had
begun his meal and a half-masticated roll remained in his mouth. He did
not look up again except when the passing of dishes or a remark from the
man on his left required it. He had sat down famished, but all relish for
food had left him, with these women to watch him eat. Mrs. Ryan had never
taken women to room before, and John felt a savage resentiment against
her. It was as if she had tricked him.
Leaving school the fourth day, he me.t Miss Brown as she came from
the room opposite his.
"So you share this ,hole in the ground, too," she said cheerily. "Imagine
teaching home science in this damp basement! I'll soon be able to write
articles on 'How to Make a Home in a Cellar.' "
Her laugh was unaffected, and her friendly chatter as they walked to
Mrs. Ryan's didn't seem to him so idle as that of most girls.
There were letters on the ,hall table.. Miss Brown pounced on them
and claimed three. "Oh, letters mean everything when you're away from
home," she cried, her blue eyes bright with joy.
As john read the address, "Miss Susan Brown," he felt a queer pain
about an organ he had long forgotten he possessed. Susan had been his
"And here's one for Beth," she continued. "Sorry there's none for you,
Mr. Hammond. But then, you're an old timer, while Beth and I are just
fledglings. Lucky we both found jobs here, because we're from the same
college. Whe.n you're new in a place, having friends helps awfully, don't
"Yes, yes," agreed john, hurriedly.
"You know, when I first saw this town, I thought I could never stay
a month, And the first day at school was terrible, I was frightened half to
death. It's comfy having you at hand, who know all the ropes."
John mounted the stairs and approached his room briskly. Once safely
in, he sprawled out in his one rocker and faced the window. "Darned pretty
girl!" he told himself. "Queer I never noticed it before." Yet he could
recall only her dark-lashed eyes and the way her blond hair formed in curls
at the nape of her white neck, These details, with an impression of graceful
slimness, must suffice until he could catch another glimpse. His mental
image of her other features was tantalizingly vague. Here was a girl not
to be comprehended in an instant, one at whom he longed to look and look.
Feeling unusually elated, he waited impatiently for the dinner hour. Then
his distrust in himself returning, he muttered, "Aw, the town fellows will
snap her up pretty quick l"
As the weeks passed Hammond found table talk more easy, for the
girls knew his subject: the out-of-doors. They drew him on so cleverly that
one evening he brought his snapshots into the green plush parlor. Once
started on the subject of scenery and mountain climbing, he talked fluently
of his home in the West.
"Oh, I love it, too," Sue cried, "boating, tramping, camping! Isn't
there any place here to picnic?"
"Yes, there's an island down the river," said john, excitedly, "and I'm
sure I can get a canoe."
"Let's plan to go Saturday, while the weather is so fine," said Beth.
It was indeed a wonderful picnic. There was a juicy steak broiled over
gleaming coals, crisp fried potatoes, muskme.lons, coffee, and rolls. john
knew he should never forget that balmy October night, with its velvet sky,
brilliant moon, and mysteriously whispering breezes. The four of them, Beth
and the young principal, he and Sue, lolling in the sand about the glowing
fire, had felt themselves one in the bond of good-fellowship. Words had
come to john all unbidden, He could not remember what he had said, but
the others had laughed often. They could not see that he was homelyg he
was secure and free in the darkness. He led them in rollicking college
"I wish I had a barrel of rum,
And sugar three hundred pounds,
The chapel bell to mix it in,
The clapper to stir it round-"

Too soon after this happy evening, Indian 5
summer made her departure and winter an- C
nounced her near approach by a flurry of 'T
snow. The Masonic Temple, a neat building r C
of gray stucco to which the townsmen point-
ed with pride, had been a great refuge to
Hammond the preceding winter. Here he had f MN! -
met men with whom he had enjoyed evenings l V
at billiards and pool. But now even this sanc- W X
tum was profaned by the ladies of the East- 0 my
ern Star, who requested that they be asked ,Qu f' j
for cards and dancing on Fridays. ', xl X
Mrs. Ryan, being one of the Stars fore- Xqa ill
most in introducing the innovation, was al- i T Il Q
ways present, and brought Sue and Beth with l
her whenever guests were allowed. On one 1 l
occasion, when every man had deserted the X , i
billiard tables, Hammond ventured to follow ft
into the ball-room. X l ,
As usual there was a dearth of partners, 41 X
and every idle male was conspicuous. Mrs. I M , .
Ryan almost immediately seized upon him, tl'
exclaiming, "We need every man here to do ll
his bit! Come, now, you ought to learn to ' "
dance, I'll find you a girl,"
Beth and Sue were dancing, so Mrs. Ryan moved toward a permanent
wallflower, the fat Struthers girl. It took a great deal of courage for john
to stand his ground, he placed his elbow upon a convenient pedestal for
Mary Struthers came toward him. "Would you like to dance?" she
tittered. "Mrs, Ryan says you're bashfull"
Hammond crimsoned furiously. "No, I don't danceg I don't care to,"
he said, stiffly,
It was a usual thing now for girls to ask him to. dance. And, having
overcome his blushing, he assumed an air of nonchalance to conceal the
gratification he felt at being noticed at last.
Beth and Sue continued their importunities at Mrs. Ryan's. "Why not
let us teach you here at home?" suggested Sue.
"Tl1at's an ideali' chimed Beth. "I'll rattle off the ragtime, and we'll
have a party of our own to-night. Mr. john, don't you dare refuse!"
"I'd rather not," protested john. But he allowed himself to be inveigled
into the parlor. A
Beth drummed out one tune after another for fifteen minutes. john
thought they had taken ,him at his word. Then Sue stood before him, "Shall
we dance?', she asked simply.
He stumbled to his feet and helped roll back the rug. Sue didn't count
the time or watch his feet. "Just let yourself go with the music," she said,
and-guided him with the pressure of her fingers.
He held himself rigid at first, and moved as stiffly as though his legs
had but the hip joint. But it wasn't so bad after several times around.
Ever since their picnic at Sandy Island, life for John Hammand had

The annual meeting for the election of officers was held in September.
The results of the election are as follows: President, Don Leonard, vice-
president, Mabel Oweng recording secretary, Julia Perrin: corresponding
secretary, Dorothy Dingwallg treasurer, Don Nixon.
Plans were made for the second annual alumni ball, and those who
were fortunate enough to attend will testify as to its success. Both of the
Hotel Statleris magnificent ballrooms were secured, and music was furnished
by C. Al. Dewey's fifteen-piece. orchestra. "Lucky dogs" and charms were
given to every couple as they entered the ballroom. Mabel and Gwen Gwen
presented a vaudeville feature at midnight that made an immediate hit with
the dancers. Punch was served and confetti was thrown among the dancers.
The serving of punch and the throwing of balloons and confetti completed
the fun at the ball. The purpose of the annual ball is to provide a means
for old friends to assemble at least once throughout the year.
In December the alumni basketball team composed of such stars as
"Bronnie" Allen, "Bus" McWood, "Os" Kirker, "Atv" VVheaton, "Tubby"
Preshaw, "Pat" Monihan, Guy Monihan, "Chuck" Sphier, and Leo L'Heau-
reux defeated the Eskimo varsity te.am in the school gymnasium before a
mingled crowd of students and alumni.
The biggest thing the Association did for the school during the year
was to manage the picnic at Bob-Lo. This was a combined affair with
Northwestern High School, Games between the facultie.s of the two schools
were held. as were also games between the alumnies and varsitie.s. The pur-
pose of the combined picnic was to bring the two schools into a more har-
monious relationship. The proceeds were turned over to the school to be
used as it saw best.
In order to form a stronger association of graduates, it was decided to
charge annual dues and to levy an initiation fee on all persons as they grad-
uate from school. Under this plan a person upon graduation may pursue
two courses. The first is simply to graduate and forget that there ever was
a Northern High. The second is to join the Alumni Association, pay a
slight fee as dues, which are to be used for the benefit of the school, and to
keep up an interest in the school from which he was graduated. In this
way it is hoped to weed out the uninterested persons, so that those who
are interested in the future of the school may work unmolested in carrying
out the program of the Alumni Association, which is for the betterment of
the school in any way, shape, or manner.
There is a big work ahead for the Association to accomplish and this
can be done only with the entire co-operation of alumni, students, and
faculty. f A

Reserve Officers Training Corps
HE unit of the R. O. T. C. at Northern is now finishing its ninth semes-
ter, having been started in April, 1919, with the members of the. H. S.
V. U. S. QHigh School Volunteers of the United Statesj forming the
nucleus upon which Captain McMillan built the first company.
In june of the same year, Hve members went to Camp Custer for further
instructions in military operations, Basic military drill was studied at first
under such leaders as: Captains VVoodford and Bailey, Lieutenants Golden
and Casey, and Sergt. A. H. Brown of the 310th Engineers, then re.turned
from Siberian service. Great was the work accomplished under their lead-
ership, in the elements of fundamental drill and target sighting and aiming
At the end of the term in June., 1920, the unit from Northern was already
recognized all over the city as a result of their excellent showing, especially
at Field Day, which was then inaugurated to the students of military train-
ing in the high school of Detroit. By this time Woodford had risen to the
'supreme position on the school staff as Major. Assisting him in his regi-
mental duties were: Captains Stevens and Bailey, Captain Myron Golden
of Major Young's Regimental Staff, Lieutenants Oakman, Silbe.rberg, Lamp-
man, and Sutter. By this time time the work had taken on a more exten-
sive character. The principles of marching in large formation and bigger
groups was studied in detail, as were skirmishing and further drills with the
Then it wasthat the Government detailed Captain Lloyd W. Biggs to
Northern to take charge and extend the. course of instruction. He was fresh
from service with the cavalry in Mexico, having participated in skirmishes
with bandits as a member of the 4th Punitive Expedition into Mexico. The
whole order of things was reorganized and the members were initiated into
a two-class program. At the indoor or theoretical, they studied 1nap-mak-
ing, more detailed drill and started range work. The other class was the
practical one., where they executed their knowledge in maneuvers and in sport.
Then Field Day came again in June, 1921, and Northern as the 3rd
Company in the lst Battalion, drilled together with Cass and Central High
Schools. They won the magnificent trophy put up by Mayor james Couzens
for regimental drill, and after passing to Cass and Central it is now in
Northern's trophy case.
A Girls' Rifle Team was started and progressed rapidly under Capt.
Biggs' tutelage until some members began shooting for medals offered by
the Winchester Rifle Co. At present the team is composed of Helen Free-
man, Alice Wessels, Marion Power, and Gertrude Grant, with Ethel Tonak,
and Kathryn Power as substitutes,
The staff of officers here now is as follows: Captain, Andrew Carlisleg
lst Lieut., Henry Nancredeg lst Lieut., William Young, 2nd Lieut., Mooreg
2nd Lieut., George Angererg Sergeants, Westcott, Miller, Cogger, and Fisher.
All of these men but Young, Angerer, and Moore are on the Rifle Team.
The R. O. T. C. has done. much, in the past, to provide Northern with an
'organization which makes its members physically strong and of real service
to their country in a critical time. Such an organization as this is worth
while, those who have never answered to the roll call may doubt this state-
ment, therefore we give them a cordial invitation to join it and permit them-
selves to be convinced. .

The Northern Senate
HE Northern Senate, at the close of the present term, will have been
in existence two and one half years, having been organized in March,
1920. The club at the present time has the largest membership in its
history, having a total of thirty members, of which at least half will grad-
uate this june.
The officers who were chosen last january have proved efficient in every
way. Sterling Smith has held the office of president in a highly commend-
able manner. Arthur Johnson, who received the office of vice-president,
has occupied the chair on one or two occasions, and. with the aid or his two
assistants, Ford Spikerman and jack Milligan, has given the club interest-
ing programs. William Evans, as secretary, although absent from a few
me.etings on account of sickness, has kept the records in fine shape. Douglas
Moe, who was elected treasurer, has handle.d the funds in a business-like
manner, and Fred Weideman, sergeant-at-arms, maintained good order in
The club has lived up to the expectations of its founders by developing
the power of speech in its members and teaching the art of debating and
public speaking. This is illustrated by the fact that Sterling Smith and
Arthur johnson have occupied positions on the negative and affirmative
debating teams of the school, respectively.
Some of the main features of the term were debates on the inter-
scholastic debating topic: "Resolved, that the United States should per-
manently retain the Philippine Islands" and on the purchase of the D. U.
R. by the city. A mock trial featuring Francis Bowen was very inspiring
and hilarious. A reunion of the old members of the Senate was held and
some old-time debating between Harold Clayson and Edgar Ailes took place.
The alumni of the club ,have come in for high honors, Edgar Ailes having
won a five hundred dollar essay prize, and Kenneth Hance and Donald
Leonard being elected to captain their respective college debating teams.
The entertainment committee, which was appointed late in the term,
started to work promptly and presented to the Senate plans for the First
Annual Dance, which was held in the Detroit Athletic Club Abbey in May.
The committee, which consists of Russell E. Smith, Maynard Kearney, and
Pointer Bradley, was well rewarded for its effort, for the dance was a huge

The Rostra Club
ORTHERN used to boast a Latin club but, when two years ago the
last members left Northern, they failed to supply others who would
take their places in a Latin club. Miss Dean's Latin UD class saw the
need of such a club in Northern, and in January, 1922, the Rostra, with Miss
Dean as faculty adviser, and the Latin Q71 pupils as charter members, was
founded. At that time the constitution was drawn up and the following
officers elected: Francis Bowen, consul or president: Evelyn Klein, tribune
or vice-president, Louise Kinmont, scriba or secretaryg Francis Sexton,
quaestor or treasurerg Arthur johnson, pontifex maximusg Andrew Klein.
lictor or sergeant-at-arms. Under these able officers the Rostra passed
successfully through the stages of organization.
The purpose of the Rostra is to stimulate interest in the. study of Latin
among the students of Northern High School. A pupil who has iinished or
is taking his third year of Latin is eligible for membership. The member-
ship of the club is limited to thirty-two members.
A meeting of the Rostra is he.ld every other Monday evening, some-
times at school, and often at the homes of the members. At these meetings
Cicero and Virgil are not read nor is Latin spoken, but rather, the meetings
prove that. though Latin may be a dead language. those who study it are
much alive. At one meeting Miss Blanche King ente.rtained the club de-
lightfully with stereopticon views and a lecture on her trip abroad. At
another the members took part in a heated debate: "Resolved, that within
twenty years classical studies will be dropped from the high school cur-
On March sixth, at the home of Arthur Johnson, a most interesting
initiation was held. The following were taken into membership: Bernard
Anderson, VVilliam Evans, Mildred Hardy, Alice Hirschman, Clayton llowe,
Randall Kohler, Carol Piper, Allen Rasch, Ruth Sanders, Thomas Schelbe,
Louise Shier, Alice Tibbetts, Boyer VVenger.
On June fifth the Rostra participated in a novel entertainment in the
form of a mock circus as the last meeting of a most successful year.
The present membership of the Rostra consists of the following: Ber-
nard Anderson, Francis Bowen, Kenneth Cole, Caro Christiancy, Emily
Crowell, William Evans, Mary Flintermann, Mildred Hardy. Alice Hirsch-
man, Ruth Hirschman. Clayton Howe. Arthur johnson, Ethel Keith, Louise

The I-Ii-Y Club
HIS YEAR as in years previous the Northern Hi-Y Club has lived
up to its tradition of loyalty and service for which it stands. The
members have realized this and have done their utmost to make this
past year one of the most successful in the history of the club.
The members who were elected to hold office for the past semester are:
Donald B. Dunham, presidentg James Lightbody, vice-president, Lincoln
Parker, secretary, and Robert McKnight, treasurer. The officers were ably
supported in all of the club's undertakings by all of the members, and Mr.
Shattuck, faculty adviser, would be a credit to any club. He, with the whole-
heartedness that characterizes him, backed us in all of our moveme.nts.
Much has been accomplished during the last semester for the good of
the school, as well as for the club members themselves. When Father and
Son week, came around the Hi-Y Club responded heartily and with great
succe.ss, putting on an excellent program in the auditorium, with five speak-
ers, some of them being: Edgar A. Guest and Dr, M. S. Rice. The program
n the auditorium was followed by an hour or so of snappy games under the
supervision of Mr. Emmons, which all present seemed to enjoy to the utmost.
The scholarship shields to be given by the club to the leading boys' house
and the leading girls' house in scholarship at the end of the month markings
were recently awarde.d to Houses 324 and 219.
The Northern Hi-Y Club has be.en extremely fortunate in having the
privilege of holding joint meetings with the other Hi-Y clubs of the city.
Among the clubs who have entertained the Northern' Club are: Highland
Park, Central, and Northwestern. These clubs greatly increased the good
feeling between the schools.
About half of the members will graduate this June, necessitating a com-
Recently the club increased the membership from about twenty to
thirty. The members at present are as follows: Benton Dempsey.

Northern Girls' Club
ORTHERN GIRLS' CLUB has acomplislied much in the past term
under the capable leadership of Dorothy Smith, presidentg Dorothy
McVVood, vice-president, Juliet Grazier, secretaryg Eleanor Smith,
corresponding secretary, and Eleanor Bodewig, treasurer,
The first social event of the term was an interclub banquet, including
the nine high schools of Detroit and Highland Park, ,held at the ,Women's
Industrial Center on East Grand Boulevard. Northern Girls' Club tried for
first prize with Commerce Club for the Girls' Reserve song. The scholar-
ship shield, awarded ,every semester to the club maintaining the highest
scholarship, would have been won by Northern Club if the record for one
grade room had not been unavailable. Each club de.corated its own table
and, as Dorothy Smith gave a toast on Camp Cavell, the Northern tables
carried out the idea of camp life by miniature tents and dolls.
The new members were entertained at Kirby House, a branch of the
Young WVomen's Christian Association. An informal initiation was given
to them at the Girls' Reserve Center, on East Adams Avenue, and a formal
one at Utley Library.
The annual banquet took place April 10 at Kirby House, after which
a good program and dancing concluded the ente.rtainment.
The officers of the Y. W. C. A. clubs and their Sunday School teachers
enjoyed a very good dinner and some interesting speeches by Miss Ruth
Stone and Miss Grace Finney at the High School Club Rooms, March 14.
On the Saturday before Easter the club took toys to the Protestant
Orphans' Home on East jefferson Avenue and played with the children.
The work turned out to be play and the girls enjoyed it as much as the
children. Cries of "I want a bunny" and "I want a dollie" were heardg but,
when the girls served ice cream and cookies, all was peaceful again.
Mothers' Day was not allowed to pass unobserved and a tea was held
at Kirby House for mothers and teachers.
Cabinet meetings were held at the ,homes of Dorothy Smith, Dorothy
McVVood, Eleanor Bodewig, and Jean Macauley.
The annual house party was held with Central Club at Baltimore Bay
on Lake St. Clair, June 2, 3, and 4.
The club members regret that the excellent leadership of Dorothy Smith
will be lost by he.r graduation, but their best wishes go with her. Miss
Yokum and Miss Judd have been the faculty advisers,

HREE semesters ago, a group of girls, seeing the need of a literary
society at Northern High School, and realizing the interest which such
an organization would stimulate, founded the Euterpe Club.
The officers for the. past semester have been:
President, Frances Sextong vice-president, Charlotte Moore, secretary,
Charlotte Ray, treasurer, Doris Kuhn.
The conscientious work and the executive ability of the president, and
the faithful efforts of the other officers are worthy of hearty Commendation.
Much credit is due to Mrs. I. I. Powels, the club's faculty advisor, whose
interest and co-operation have helped so much in Euterpe's affairs.
Euterpe's undertakings have ranged from literary activities to social
pleasures. Early in the semester, a mock initiation was held, and since then
six other new members have been taken in.
The program committee has chosen ve.ry interesting topics on the sub-
ject, "Modern American Poets," for Euterpre's literary work, and the lives
of John Mansfield. Louis Untermeyer, Christopher Morley, and of many
others, have been discussed. At one meeting, Miss Eva M. Kinney addressed
the clubg she gave her definition of poetry-a very beautiful definition-and
a description of a model poet.
The greatest undertaking of the club since January has been the literary
contest, conducted during the month of May, for the best short-story poem.
or one.-act play written by a student of Northern High School. The club
extends its thanks to Miss Eva M. Kinney and Miss Mabel Tuomey for their
services in acting as judges.
During Northernfs observance of "Mother and Daughter" and "Father
and Son" night, Euterpe responded to the call for entertainment with a
short mock literary meeting in which many bits of literary knowledge never
heard before were imparted to a large audience of fond parents,
On May 27, a dance for club members and their guests was held at the
home of Ruth Palmer. The evening was enjoyed by all.
No definite plans have yet been made for the 'next term, nevertheless.
as the club will not lose many members through graduation, the girls feel
that Euterpe will be as active and successful next year as it has in the past.
Euterpe has nineteen members: Caro Christiancy, Virginia Crossman.
Alice Fales, Alta Jones, Doris Kuhn, Mildred Lamb, Mary Frances Lull.
Gertrude Moag. Anna Moore. Charlotte Moore, Ruth Palmer, Helen Phil-
lips, Carol Piper, Charlotte Ray, Frances Sexton, Dorothy Smith, Eleanor
Smith, Helen Sutton, Esther Tuttle.
The Trideal Cluh
HIS semester has been one of activity'for the members of the club.
The officers for the past term are: Alice VanHee, presidentg Dorothy
McVVood, vice-presidentg Elizabeth Chapin, secretaryg and Margaret
Among other things done by the Trideal girls in behalf of the school
was to provide entertainment and refreshments on Mothers' and Daughters'
Night. This was a great success and the girls certainly did their share in
making the affair go over the top with flying colors.
The Trideal Club also gave a St. Patrick's dance, adding to the club's
score of successes. There was a good crowd at the dance and everyone had
a fine time, despite the fact that there was no fire in the furnaces that night.
The music was so wonderful that everyone forgot his chattering teeth.
The girls are looking forward with anticipations to next year, especially
to the annual football blanket-tag sale next fall.
Not only ,has the Trideals had the co-operation of her active members
but also of the girls who have become inactive during this past semester.
Elizabeth Fikes is one of those who have. done much to promote all the
undertakings of the club.
The active members of the club are: Ruth Armstrong, Dorothea Bach-
man, Elsa Brown, Margaret Bush, Charlotte Case, Elizabeth Chapin, Eliza-
beth Clark, Beatrice Penton, Marion Fikes, Gertrude Flynn, Lucy Harris.
Alice Hirschman. Ruth Hirschman, Margaret Hubbard, Mary Louise Janny,

The Northern Radio Club
IQEIEPING with the recognition of radio as an entertaining and in-
structive factor in school as well as home life, the Northern Radio Club
experienced a year of unusual progress and success.
One of the problems confronting the club during the past semester was
to furnish instruction which would hold the interest of both the beginners
and the more advanced members. This was successfully solved: not the
least factor in making this end possible was the tact, competency. and per-
sonality of Mr. Rolfe. the faculty adviser. The meetings were enthusiasti-
cally attended. Ry availing themselves of the club's opportunities, many of
the members obtained their United States Government licenses.
Desiring to extend its activities to the service of the school as a whole,
the club recently purchased a Magnavox, which will be installed in the audi-
torium so that radio concerts may be heard by all.
'llhe officers for the pastsemester were: President, VVilliam Lore: vice-
president, Steven Sanderson: secretary, Charles K. Hunt, treasurer, Bryant
Pocockg faculty adviser, Mr. E. C. Rolfe.

,Know Your School Week
ff PEN NIGHT" was held at Northern High School, Thursday, March 6,
for the purpose of acquainting parents and others interested in school
work with the daily activities of the students and teachers.
School began at two o'clock and ended at nine-thirty. A program was
given in the auditorium to entertain the visitors and the students during
the.ir vacant hours.
The Trideal girls sold candy. frost-bites, and ginger ale in the front
corridor. The lunch-room served supper from 5:30 to 8:30, the menu con-
sisting of the regular dishes at regular prices.
The R. O. T. C. put on an exhibition drill in the gym the first hour and
all the physical education classes put on special exercises in honor of the
The Northern Radio Club exhibited some wireless apparatus in the physics
room. They also exhibited a complete radio set, equipped with a Magnavoix
and received the News concert clearly.
Other classes were. conducted in the usual manner and received a fair
share of spectators. The teachers carried signs inscribed with their names,
which were placed on the door of the rooms the teachers occupied. The
plan was a great improvement and saved much confusion.
At the end of the eighth hour many went to the gym and danced to the
music provided by the orchestra.
The several committees deserve credit for their efforts, It is hoped
that "Open Nightn will become an annual feature.
Northern Chess and Checker Club
HE Northern Chess and Checker Club was organized October 20. 1921,
under the faculty advisory of Mr, M. E. Shattuck, with a charter
membership of 13 boys. They were Albert Brown, Nathan Brown,
Harold Bennett, Michael Faber, Leo Frank. Alex. Frank, Samuel Silverstein,
Kenneth Van Hee, Robert Davidson, Herbert Seigel, jack Lipsitz, Bernard
Rogers, and George Tonak. Albert Brown was elected president, and Nathan
Brown was elected secretary-treasurer.
Due to constant practice, and a little coaching by Mr. A. L. Hegener.
the checker team succeeded in trimming junior College in a formal tourna-
ment held March 20, 1922. Northern won 23 points and Junior College 14.
Nathan Brown starred for Northern, and Norman Barcus for junior
College. The other Collegian players were: Kramer, Saidman, and Croll.
In a third tournament held May first, Northern was defeated by VVest-
ern, the final score standing 38 to 26, Leo Frank of Northern starred here,
and Fred Hamm of Westerii. The rest of their team was Tappcrman, Hen-
dricks, and Horowitz.
In the return match with Western, held May 16, Northern was again
defeated with a final score of 26 to 18.
It is hoped that the students will become infinitely more interested in
the progress of the Chess and Checker Club, and in chess and checkers. be-
ginning September, 1922, by actual participation and enthusiastic support.
TH E VIKING
The Debating Team
HE debating team of 1922 has done great things for Northern. True.
it did not win the city championship, but it aroused such interest among
the students that the purpose of debating has been more than fulhlled.
Never bef-ore in Northern, and never yet in any other schools of the city,
has such interest been aroused. This means that not only the debaters
benefit by their experience, but also that the students themselves derive
great intellectual profit.
The success attained by the team was a surprise to many. In the first
triangular debates they eliminated Southeastern and Western by winning
three out of the four debates. Then, taking on Central and Northwestern,
the winners in the other two leagues, the.y came out tie with Northwestern,
Central being eliminated. In the final debates held simultaneously at North-
ern and Northwestern, on june 8, a tie again resulted. The audience. judges,
and debaters were held in the respective schools, and after an extra rebuttal
had been given, Northwestern emerged victor.
The affirmative team did fine work. Its first speaker, Saul Sarnoff.
had an exceptionally pleasing delivery and perfect style. Charles Oakman,
second speaker, with his powerful manner and maturity of thought, was a
great factor in impressng the audience and judges. Arthur Johnson, captain
and last speaker b,y his logical mind and excellent presentation, completed
The negative team deserves most of the credit, however. Debating
away from home and against many odds, it made an enviable record. Ster-
ling Smith's incisive slashes easily battered down the walls of the opposition.
Arthur Levy, with his polished delivery, carried on the negative case in fine
style. Frank VVilcox, negatve captain and third speaker, is clearly one of
the best orators ever produced at Northern. His long experience., splendid
voice, and whirlwind rebuttals were the main factor in the negative's success.
The debating class helped the team in securing material, arranging data,
and in practice debates. Great credit is due to it.
Finally, a word of appreciation must be spoken for M. E. Shattuck,
coach. Though new as a coach, Mr. Shattuck trained a combination which
defeated every team in the city, except those in which two girls and a boy
composed the opposing team. Mr. Shattuck hopes that there will be sepa-
rate teams and contests for boys and girls, and declares that the present
system is unfair. His loyalty to his associations and pupils and his splendid
training to the team has endeared him to the hearts of all.

orthern Hi h Orchestra
HE Northern High School Orchestra is an organization which, although
pronounced by innumerable audiences as being second to none of its
kind in the state, is not fully appreciated by the students. This is
shown by the fact that there are many good musicians among the student
body who are not members of the orchestra.
At present, the orchestra consists of about forty-eight members, under
the direction of Mr. Arthur H. Searle, whose energy and hard work consti-
tute the dominating factor in its wonderful development. Sol Zuieback is
the present concert-master, and the auxiliary directors are Alvin Tolle and
Bernard Silverstein, The latter has, on se.veral occasions, played at the
Detroit News and the Detroit Free Press radio stations. Some of the others,
many of whom await brilliant futures, are Morris Cohen, Victor Avrunin,
Irving Kane, VVm. Uskatz, Lloyd Skinner, j. Tucker, J. joce, Harold Rezan-

The Dramatic Class
RAMA'l'lCS?" Oh, yes, the plays in the Revue," you say. "Pretty
good, eh? that one wherein But there's more to it than that.
Probably if some lirst or second hour you had slipped unobtrustively
into the auditorium Qwell, some havej you would have seen a class, mostly
girls and five boys, draped over the first few rows, reciting, indulging in
heated discussions, or feverishly taking notes under Miss Tuomey's direc-
tion. Also, probably, had you listened, you might profitably have tucked
away a few things in your mental refrigerator for future use.
Here we wish to destroy two of the pet illusions of some outsiders, with
whom we have talked upon the subject. In classes such as ours, the benefit
derived from presenting plays is not gained solely by those acting, and the
main object of the players is not merely learning lines.
As to the first, few people seem to know the hundred and one things
that have to be done, can't possibly be accomplished by the actors, and are
a valuable means of teaching the details of a stage production. Somebody
has to set the stage, to see to the properties, send the actors on, pull the
curtain, and hold the prompter's book. '
As to the second, while knowing lines is important, there are also those
small but weighty matters of inflection, volume, pitch, gestures, and busi-
ness, and a regard for spacing and technicalities so subtle that evezry move
seems natural, graceful, and most of all, completes the picture.
These things were very carefully thought out in "The Playgoersf'
"Neighbors,', and "The Turtle Dove," the plays presented by the class on
the nights of June 2 and 3. We have.n't the space to dwell here upon the
merits of all the actors, but we might mention the delicious "Mrs, Hackett"
of Helen johnson, the exasperated "Ezry" of William Lore, that very English
couple, Jessie Forbes and Russel E. Smith, and the stately, bowing Chorus,

This success has been due in a large measure to the tire.less efforts
of Mr. Isbell, the grade principal, in instilling a spirit of loyalty and co-opera-
tion into the fellows of 324.
Early in the term the following officers were elected: President, Jack
Baker, vice-president, james Casey, secretary, Wilfred Burkeg treasurer,
At the first business meeting, held shortly after the elections, the fol-
lowing committee heads were chosen: Advisory, Mr. Isbell, Scholarship,
Martin Butzelg Decoration, Eugene Adair, Clean-up, A. Baileyg Social,
Carson. With such workers as these, 324 was bound to advance one more
rung on its ladder of success.
The Wilsonites have never lost sight of the fact that the purpose of
going to school is to get knowledge, and it is in this that they have made
their greatest gain. Their Honor Roll boasts of a larger number of students
than any other boys' house at Northern. For this they have received the
Scholarship Shield offered by the Hi-Y Club to the house that should have
the highest average standing.
324 has forged well ahead in athletics. When the basketball season
opened many Wilsonites responded to the call for candidates. Captain
Dempsey, Baker, Casey, and Briskman were the fellows of 324 who made
the grade and were chosen for Northern's varsity team.
324 has maintaine.d its reputation for producing skaters of note. Choinere
and our young prodigy, Conklin, were 32-Vs quota represented on the skating
team. These fellows distinguished themselves by gaining the largest number
of points for Northern. It was largely because of these two fellows that
Northern won the City Skating Championship. A word of praise should be
given "to George Babcock, also of 324, who devoted much of his time in
coaching the skating team.
On the track team 324 has placed Barlow, Caplan Qthese two were on
Northern's record-breaking relay teamj, Baker, Casey, Choinere, Copp, and
Daniels. All of these fellows helped Northern in winning the track meets
between the various schools, Dempsey represents 324,s quota on the varsity
324 is represented on the varsity baseball team by: Conklin, I. Cole,

Palmer House succeeded in winning athletic and scholastic honors.
219 won the girls' inter-house basketball cup, taking it from 300, which
had held it the two previous years. The house won the football picture
given by the Hi-Y to the girls' house that sold the most tickets for the
Northern-Northwestern football game. House 219 bought a picture of
Northern Girls' Swimming Team, which won the city championship.
Dorothy McVVood has added honors to the school by her wonderful plung-
ing records. She now holds fourteen medals.
The Hi-Y shield was awarded to Palmer House for the finest two
markings of the term. The scholarship of the house has been raised by
posting every girl's average each marking for the past two semesters.
The Amalgamated Society for the Prevention of Tardiness was organ-
ized in 219 this term. The charter members are: Mr. E, L. Miller, E.
Oakman, V. jones, H. Jackman, E. Crowell, F. Buny, F. Goldsmith, and
Palme.r House lost twenty-eight girls through graduation. This is the
largest number of graduates that the house has ever graduated at one time.
House 219 girls purchased pins and rings this term. Our design is a
shield in silver with a center of green to carry out the house colors of
green and white. At either side of the enameled cente.r are the letters N. H,
for Northern High, and at the top of the shield is the word Palmer. The
torch of knowledge in silver raised on the center of green expresses the
ideal for which Palmer House is striving.

Benjamin Franklin House
ITH the closing of this semester comes the end of the most triumph-
ant and successful year that Franklin House has enjoyed. The house
has stood out during the past year in scholarship and attendance as
well as in athletics. The success of the house teams has inspired a loyal
house spirit which makes for the advancement to higher honors.
Near the beginning of the semester the house elected its officers. Fred
Graf, one of Northern's gladiators, was elected to the office of presidentg
George Hester, vice-presidentg and Charles Hunt to the duties of secretary-
treasurer. The success of the house shows the worth of the officers.
In athletics House 308. has been unusually successful, winning the inter-
house football championship in the fall. Both the heavy and light basketball
teams of the house came through in fine style, winning both banners. The
heavy-weights won six and lost two games, while the feather-weights won
six and lost one.
The house, in addition to winning laurels for itself, furnished to the var-
sity teams George Hester, baseball, basketball, and trackg Ben Gorman, base-
ballg while Fred Graf, John Koppelo, Norman Gabel, Louis Hamburger, Israel
Konikow, and Dorland Grubaugh made the varsity track team.
In debating Arthur johnson represented the house as captain of the
affirmative team, and Arthur Levy won a place on the negative team.
Richard Fruit and Louis Friedman were both alternates, and their valuable
work was not without results.
Perhaps one of the most coveted offices to be held in the school is that
of Editor-in-'Chief of the Senior "Viking" This honor was given to Arthur
Johnson of House 308. The house is pleased that one of its members has
been chosen to this office. House 308 also is glad to state that its able
leader, Mr. McGrath, was given the position of General Manager.
Thus has Franklin House served the school during the past year. To
the fifteen members of the house who are in the graduating class the ,house
extends congratulations and sincere hopes for a happy future,
And finally a word of appreciation must be said for the house principal.
Under the inspiring leadership of Mr. A. L. McGrath the house has been

That the Mary Gamble girls work for their house is evident. The posi-

for swimming. The house stands high in scholarship, an average of thirty-
five names appearing on the honor roll each month.
The parties given by the house have beeome famous and are always
well attended. An event which is looked forward to each term is the l2A's
party for the 9B's. A hilarious time is always enjoyed when the-iE'w-

improvement of the house and school, and better fellowship.
There has been a marked improvement in scholarship and the eradica-

runners up in house basketball. At present much interest is being shown
in baseball and tennis.
john Marshall House, as usual, easily supplied its regular quota
to the various varsity teams, nlling six positions on the baseball squad.
These were: Lightbody, Mellick, Metcalf, Oakman, Owen, and Pederson.

covered with many attractive designs and we hope you all will have a
chance to view them.
At Thanksgiving and Christmas we took care of four families and in
this way made a happy time for them. Once a week a penny box is passed
and the money obtained is used for those who are in need.
A house party has been planned for June ninth and we are looking
forward to a gay time for all the ninth graders.
A committee has been formed to make a suitable design for a house pin.
Elizabeth Fikes, the chairman, has reported that the design will be ready in
time for our seniors.
Miss Mable Wood has devoted much of her time and energy for the
benefit of us all during the recent illness of Miss Pulford and we take this
opporunity to thank her for her interest.
We regret the loss of thirty girls who are graduating in the class of
June, 1922. Although these girls are leaving us, we hope they will not
forget the associations of jane Addams House.

House of Thomas Edison
The past semester has been a most successful one for Thomas Edison
House in many respects. Progress has been made., and that is the real test
of any success.
Organization was completed early in the semester under the following
capable officers: President, Frank Wilcox, vice-president, Miles Turping
secretary, Clarence Young, treasurer, George. Trumbull. These boys have
endeavored at all times to promote the best interests of the house and have
been of great assistance to Mr. Powels. It is fitting to pause here and pay
tribute to our grade principal. The members of this grade room have found
Mr. Powels to be a gentleman, a man true to his word, and it is with sincere
regret that the seniors are to leave his supervision.
House 208 comes to the end of the school year with an enviable record
in many fields. The former low tardy record, established by this house,
was reduced to one pupil for the entire period covering March and April.
No other house was able to approach this excellent mark.
Many valuable men have been recruited from this ,house for the various
athletic teams. Van Hee and Solai ably represented us on the varsity bas-
ketball team. It is a well-known fact that old veterans like Turpin, "Ken"
Smith, "Whang" Smith, and "Bill" Young, were invaluable to the track
team. The baseball team was considerably bolstered by the ability of
Vachon, Turpin, "Whitie" Smith, and Van Hee. The prowess of 'GTiny"
Smith on the swimming team is history. Walaitis is another swimmer who
is rapidly coming to the front.
The ability of the fellows of this house has not been confined to athletic
pursuits as is proved by the fact that Wilcox, Sarnoff, and Smith made the
Material assistance was rendered through the able support of Frank
Wilcox and joseph Seliady in study hall control, They were each assigned
periods in which to take charge of the room. This tended to make the boys
feel more independent and a splendid spirit of co-operation was developed.
Scholarship and attendance have been two other strong points in our
favor. We have held second or third place in scholarship among the boys'
,houses and have been either first or second in attendance for the whole
school throughout this semester. Needless to say, strong support has been
given to all inter-house activities.
Thomas Edison House has built up a reputation for encouraging those
'things which are for the good of the school. All of the members appreciate
this and guard that reputation jealously. ln the semesters to come we
hope it will be even more strengthened.

each hour to take record and to keep order. The girls appointed by Miss
Sutherland were: I, D. Brown, II, Folma Mead, III, Anna VanTuyl, IV,
Dorothy Goodson, V, Edith Clapp, VI, Lillian Sutton, VII, Grace Trask,
VIII, Katherine Tinsman, who were assisted by Elizabeth Albrecht, Juliette
Schaffer, Charlotte Knepper, Henrietta Stryker, and ,Elizabeth Stock.
There is also a Scholarship Committee with Chairman Elizabeth Smith,
and Tardy and Absence Committees, headed by Audrey Bodenna and Thelma
Scratch, who take charge of the tardy and absent pupils.
Miss Sutherland appointed monitors for each hour to keep the grade-
room tidy: I, Isabel Smith, II, Mary Campbell, III, Doris Brown, IV, Ruth
Weiner, V, Bonita Trezise, VI, Janette Wallace, VII, Alice Wessels, VIII,
Houses 307 and 324 gave a joint party in the gym on April 21. The 9B's
were guests, and thanks to Josephine Cooper, Belle Messinger, and Jack
Baker, many others of both houses. The party was a great success.
Besides games and races there were lots of good things to eat. A short
play, "Just Suppose," was presented in the auditorium, the cast being com-
posed of membe.rs from both houses.
The grade-room itself is very attractive, having been decorated by
Helen Johnson, Belle Messinger, and Sam Myers.
Clara Barton House has 32 seniors, the most in its history. Most of
these girls have been at Northern since it opene.d, and will miss dear old
Northern, and Miss Sutherland, as surely as they will be missed by their

Northern in I920-1922
ORTHERN has had a good year.
Under Mr. Rynearson our football team won the city championship.
Under Mr. Watkins our basketball team appeared on the point of
doing likewise until it was discovered that he was playing an ineligible man,
which, as Watkins previously had a reputation for stainless probity, was a
shock. Mr. Clemons' proteges, especially Dorothy McWood and Donald
McClellan, have greatly distinguished themselves. Codd Field has been
converted from a barren waste into a real athletic field. Progress toward
securing a new gymnasium has been made and a playground back of the
school is now assured. The Scouts and the R. O. T. C. show good progress.
Intra-school athletics have developed rapidly and this is important, for they
are the basis of all sound athletic achievements. As I write news comes that
we have won the State Track Championship.
Mr. Shattuck and his debating team have not yet won the city cham-
pionship, but I think they will do so. Whether they do or not, I extend my
congratulations to him and Saul Sarnoff, Charles Oakman, Arthur johnson,
Sterling Smith, Arthur Levy, and Frank Wilcox. A debating championship
means more than a football championship.
The Northern Light ,founded in September, 1921, has ushered in a new
era in Detroit high school journalism. Under the skillful guidance of Mr.
Lanius, it has become not only a splendid school paper but the best instru-
ment for teaching composition that I have ever seen in a high school. To
The Viking, now turned into a semi-annual, I can also extend a meed of
praise. Mr. McGrath ,has won for it the distinction, rare among school
magazines, of being at once artistic and solvent.
Among many literary and artistic successes scored this year by the
pupils of Northern, one stands out, Edgar Ailes's winning of the national
Pollak Foundation Prize of 350000.
In the all-important matter of scholarship the school appears to be on
the up-grade. In the first semester of 1920-21, the girls averaged 77.5 per
cent and the boys 74.9. During the second semester this spring the girls
thus far have made 80.18 per cent and the boys 77.67. The graduates of
Northern who entered the University of Michigan in September, 1920, and
September, 1921, secured the following marks:

These showings are fair but not good e.nough. One reason why they
are not better is because our attendance is bad. This table tells the tale for

Several school activities conducted by the students are worthy of warm
commendation, Among these are the work of the Radio Club, the High-Y
Club's welcome to new pupils, the management of Fathe.r and Sons' Day by
the High-Y Club, the management of Mother and Daughters' Day by the
Northern Girls' Club, the charity work of the Trideals, the Rostra Club's
Latin programs, the Euterpe Club's poetry, and the debating of the Senate.
And these are only a few among many worthy accomplishments.
There have been other fine things. Four symphony concerts, conducted
by Victor Kolar, afforded a great educational opportunity to the com-
munity. The minstrels, led by Mr. Searle and captained on the field by
Prof. McGrath, gave an entertainment that few professional organizations
could surpass. Miss jarrard, Miss Vernor, Miss Clark, Miss Detwyle.r, Miss
Yocum, and Mr. Emmons have conducted a hospital that has been little
advertised but has alleviated many an ache and pain. Mr. Yokum has car-
ried on important research work in the causes and cures of absence, and
Mr. Allman has made studies in failure and its causes that are deservedly
attracting attention. Mr. Sayres has sent poetry to The Atlantic Monthly,
which the editor did not print, though he published the letter which accom-
Early in the year The Northern Light presented the school with a
Guest Book. In this book the first name is that of Eddie Guest. Among
the other distinguished visitors are:
E. D, Stair, owner of Free Press, W. B. Lowe, and W. H. Pettibone,
managers of Free Pre.ss, George P. Codd, Congressman, Adam Strohm,
Librarian, Charles McKenny, President of Ypsilanti Normal, Lynn Harold

938 David Whitney Bldg., Frank Cody, 1354 Broadway, Charle.s L, Spain,
1354 Broadway, O. G. Frederick, 1354 Broadway.
The last nine of these visitors came to a dinner given April 27 in the
lunch room. To have so many members of the School Board and superin-
tendents in one school at one time was a noteworthy event. The.y said
several nice things about the school and Mrs. DeHaven. who gave them
one of her noblest repasts, enlivened by wonderful place cards made by Miss
Bain's girls, by music manufactured by the orchestra, and by a corps of
waitresses unsurpassable for neatness and dispatch, the same being fur-
nished by Miss Vernor.
One Hundred Seventeen
Yesg it has been a good year.
There are only two flies in the ointment: first, the building is and bids
fair to remain abominably overcrowdedg second, while the boys are making
a splendid record in punctuality, the girls' achievements in this respect have
been atrocious. V
I must not conclude without a word about the Parent-Teachers' Asso-
ciation. It has furthered endless worthy schemes during the year. The
spirit of its members always has been characterized by a desire to co-oper-
ate in a constructive way with the purposes of the school. Only one criticism
can be justly made of this organization. It is too small. Instead of num-
bering 400 members it should number 5,000. If every father and every
mother could be induced to enroll, to attend meetings, and to take an active
part in the work of the club, we could make of Northern a school such as
never yet has been seen.
In conclusion, permit me to thank the teachers, pupils, and parents of
Northern for their line spirit and splendid co-operation this year. It has
been admirable and effective.

The Viking Staff
HE members of the Viking Staff are the hardest worked people at
Northern. Upon their shoulders rests the responsibility of Writing,
editing, and publishing an issue for which they must write thousands
of words and secure hundreds of pictures. Also, through advertising and
sale of tickets, they must put their issue on a firm financial basis. For these
reasons it ispeculiarly appropriate to give a word of appreciation to the
staff here. '
To Sigmund Robinson, business manager, a large, share of the credit
must be rendered. He and his business staff have sold advertising so well
and pushed the ticket sale so far that the financial success and Wide-spread
circulation of this' volume is assured. Mlton Silberberg and Walter O'Nei1
have been his chief assistants and have given much valuable help. Fred
Weideman, Francis Bowen, and Arthur Levy should also receive praise for
their tedious, but effective, work.
Arthur johnson, as editor-in-chief, has supervised the work with much
executive ability. Jack Milligan, literary editor, was one of his best helpers.
Milligan's work was always prompt, correct, and We.ll done. Vera Neville,
art editor, and Helen johnson, personals editor, have been of great help in
collecting and arranging pictures, securing the proper artistic appearance,
and in otherwise raising the value of the magazine. Both have worked long
and hard. Charles Oakman, news editor, has done his work promptly and
efficiently. The graduate editor, Jane Macbeth, ,has been a fine and con-
sistent worker. To Dunton Barlow, sport editor, and to his assistants,
Thorn Smith and Ford Spikerman, the sport department pays ample tribute.
Russell Smith, joke editor, has added the final taste of spicy humor to the
Viking. "Kay," Van Hee, Eugene Adair, Florine Elliott, and Sam Meyerson
deserve especial recognition for their beautiful art work. Also to Madelyn
Miller, Alta jones, and Elita Adams, co-workers with the editor on the class
prophecy, a special meed of tribute should be granted.
Publishing the "Viking" is a big job. U
Those who have Worked hard, do so only in hopes that their labors
will find fruit in the appreciation of their classmates and in the making of
a better Northern.

T of 1922
Northern is proud indeed of her 1922 State Track Champions, who
brought home the first state championship ever won by a Northern team in
major sports, and thereby closed the most successful athletic season North-
ern has ever known. g
Track, previous to this year, has been considered lightly by the student
body. This year, at meets, the team had a good-sized group of followers,
but not as many as should have been there. Now that the team has been
the most successful of any of Northern's teams, it would be well for all to
give their support.
The year was started with six letter men, many reserve men, and a
little new material. Of the new men, Caplan and Pederson were the bright
lights. Caplan more than proved his worth in the dashes and relay team.
Pederson did not do much indoors, but outdoors did yeoman service. Ken
Smith deserves a lot of praise for his hard work, and will be back next year.
Parker, through his unconquerable spirit. developed into a consistent point
winner. Barlow was a valuable man, and the team will certainly miss him
next year. Hester was the bright light in eery meet, and too much credit
cannot be given him.
The following will receive N's: George Hester, Miles Turpin, Dunton
Barlow. Leonard Caplan, Fred Graf, Morris Pederson, Lincoln Parker,
and Kenneth Smith.
The highest point winners have been: llester, 1042, Turpin, SSMQ
Barlow. ZSM: Caplan, 2723 Parker, 263 Graf, 243 Ken Smith, 21 g and Peder-
The reserves have been of great help and will be the coming leaders in
track. Those who will receive R's are: VVm. Young, Art Hailey, joseph
Copp. Everett Pauschert, Israel Konikow, Chas. Sweet, jack Baker, Norman
Gable, Philip Lewis, Phil Marcuse, john Koppelo, Gordon Hester, Thorne
Smith, Wariier McVicar, Dorland Grubaugh.

The Cross Country Team
HE Northern cross country squad was hampered this season as in the
season before by lack of proper competition. The team that was de-
veloped this season by Coach Shelby A. Harrington was one which few
high schools could claim the equal of. The squad consisted of "Ken" Smith,
"Art" Bailey, John Koppelo, "Tedl' Bergman, Warner McVicar, "Wang"
Smith, and "Bill" Mercer.
The Eskimos were defeated by Northwestern in a three-mile run, prin-
cipally because of the fine last half-mile sprint staged by the Colts, led by
Blanchard and Kearney. Ken Smith, Northern's captain, took first, Bergman
fifth, Bailey seventh, Koppelo eighth, McVicar tenth.
Because of the big snowstorm late in November, the state run at Lansing
was cancelle.d and the only other meet Northern was able to enter was the
Y. M. C. A. four-mile run on Thanksgiving Day. A mix-up because of
inefficient scoring resulted in Ann Arbor being awarded the team trophy
but, after Coach Harrington protested the decision, an investigation was
made, and after much fussing the Y. M. 'C. A, decided that their own team
had taken first honors.
After cross-country season was over, several of the squad joined the
indoor track squad, and the endurance developed and experience gained by
the long-distance running made them valuable additions to the tracksters
as point-gainers in the mile. Northern's only representatives in the mile
this year were all cross-country men: Ken Smith, Art Bailey, john Koppelo.
Smith and Koppelo will be back next year.

The Relay Team
HE success attained by Northern's 1922 State Championship Track
team can be traced hack to its half-mile relay team. The team was
composed of four men who upheld Northern's colors more successfully
than any previous team. The personnel of the team was: Dunton Harlow
'22, Leonard Caplan '2-1, Miles Turpin 125, and George Hester '25. livery
race in which they started was won by them except one. in which Hester fell.
In every race but the one mentioned, they either broke or tied a record. They
hold the record for both the indoor and outdoor State Championship. The
indoor record is 1:42 4-5 seconds, and the outdoor 15333-5. Their time at
the University of Michigan meet was 1:35 1-5, which tied the record made in
1903. It wil be a long time before Northern can boast of such a combination
of speeders as these boys.

The Tennis Team
HIS year's tennis team is composed of Goldsmith, Robert Cleary, Bob
Shiell, Don Smith, and john Marshall. The illness of Oscar Zemon,
star and captain, prevented him from playing in more than one match.
,Goldsmith is an erratic player, with frequent flashes of brilliance. His
net, work is especially good.
Cleary is a steady player and possesses a very fast serve.
Shiell has a style of playing which is all his own, but which wins his
Smith and Marshall, the second doubles team, have lost to date but one
match. Smith does the net work, while Marshall pays back.
Goldsmith and Cleary play well in the first doubles.
For a bunch composed of one veteran and four green men, our team has
done rather well this eason.

,KST FALL we completed our most successful foothall season, defeating
Northwestern for theitirst time and therehy winning the city title.
The season started badly and we feared an "oft" year, as only a few
regulars were hack. Our team per-for-ined poorly against XK'esteru, hut later
one of their players was deelared ineligihle and they forfeited the game.
NYC' next won a game from Ypsilanti, hut the lwig game came with lfastern,
lt was a terrific hattle and we emerged victorious, making the only touch-
down with a trick play designed for this game. .Xfter this we journeyed to
Grand Rapids and were decisively downed hy a superior team. 'l'hen Central
sprang a surprise and gave us sueh a good light that the result was a tie.
ln the Cass game we waded to victory through the muddiest tield imaginahle,
Then there came the ganie with our ancient rivals, Northwestern. lt
was held at Navin Field, where thousands saw our team down the Colts
and emerge City Champions.
Credit must he awarded to the lmoys who worked their way to the top
hy steady practice, persistently plugging along until they wong and to Voaeh
Rvnearson, whose devotion to his work made the. victory possihle.

OTVVITH STANDING the fact that Northern was put out of the run-

chscovery that she had unintentionahy used an inehgible player, she
has had a highly successful season.

In an exhibition game played at Danceland with Northwestern, always
a bitter rival of Northern, the Eskimos demonstrated their superiority and
finished in front, 20-ll."
The tide was turned for the second time by Southeastern who, with their
steady aggressive playing, left Northern in the background by the small
margin of four points. The final score was 14-10.
Northern would have finished first in her division and would have played
the champion of the Western division for the city title, had it not been for
Southeastern, who protested the eligibility of a Cass Tech. player. Central
in the meantime had accidentally found in her records that James Casey
had attended Central for two weeks after he was mustered out of the service
and then had come to Northern. These two weeks at Central were counted
as a full term, conse.quently the preceding semester was 'Casey's tenth term
and by the M. I. A. A. rules he was ineligible for further competition in high
school athletics, Because of this mix-up, Southeastern finished first, Eastern
second, Northern and Cass Tech. tied for third, with Northeastern last.
The tie between Northern and Cass was played off at the Armory March
17. The Eskimos proved that they were still formidable enough to over-
come the Mechanics without the aid of Casey and broke the attack of the
Cass Avenue boys, emerging victorious by a 21-ll score.
FTER a strenuous season of playing, House 308 finally came out on top
and won the house basketball championship. House 317 was second
only as a result of losing to House 308 in the final game, which was
played with House 308 because 317 was tied with 308 for first place 'in the
light division. House 324, although not showing such a high grade of skill
as Houses 308 and 317, cannot be passed up without notice because she
certainly had some mighty fine players. House 208 finished last because of
the lack of interest the boys in the house showed, but the fellows who did
come out did very well and cannot be given too much credit.

Girls, Varsit Basketball Team
Um' Hundred Tlliftj'-HX'C
Varsity Girls Basketball
ARLY in the fall Coach Denesha issued the first call for girls' basketball.
A schedule had been arranged of house games to be played first. The
showing of the girls in these games was to determine the girls for the
varsity and reserve teams. The games were completed about December 1,
and a cut was made in the squad. The teams were picked before Christmas.
On January 7, the Eskimos opened the season with Eastern as opponents,
The game-was played on Eastern's fioor and was hotly contested by both
teams. When the final whistle blew, the score stood 19-18 in favor of East-
ern. In this game Margaret Nixon, star guard for the Eskimos, injured her
knee and was forced to leave the squad for the rest of the season. Mildred
Hardy, Eskimo jumping center, was changed to guard, a position she had
never played. Estelle North, side center on the team, went in for jumping
cente.r, and Celia Chilman, a substitute, became side center.
With this line-up Northern met Central at Northern. The Eskimites
set a fast pace the first quarter, getting a score of 3-Og however, they were
unable to keep it up, and Central won, 31-17.
The Highland Park high school lassies invaded the Northern gym the.
following week and were defeated 28-8.
The Western game was next on the schedule. The Cowgirls went into
the game with the idea of whipping the Eskies to a standstill, which they
However, the next week the Eskimos were in better condition to play
the Colts. The game was a fight from start to finish. An overtime period
was necessary. Northwestern won by one point, the score being 18-17.
A practice game was arranged with Northeastern, a member of the
minor league. This was played on Northern's floor. The Eskimos showed
superior work by defeating the opponents 36-8 in a very one-sided game.
On February ll, Northern again played Eastern, this time on Northern's
court. The Eskimos were victorious, 22-18.
The second game with Central was played at Central. The Eskimos
were defeated 31-12,
The following week the Northern sextet journeyed to Highland Park.
The Eskies won, despite poor teamwork, to the tune of 24-13.
The second game with Western, on Northern's court, although won by
Western 29-22, snowed the Cowgirls that Northern's team was not as easy
to play as the previous game had seemed to indicate.
The final game was with Northwestern at Northwestern and was won
by the boulevard girls 25-16, although the score was tied 10-10 at the half.
The city championship was won by the Northwestern girls' team.
The quality of the Northern team may be realized when we know that
Northwestern was forced to play an overtime game with the Eskimos in
the first series of games and came close to repeating the performance in
the second series.
Our team did not win many games, but the blame for this cannot be
put upon the girls, on the squad, or upon the coach. If it is to be put any-
where, it should be upon the student body. One of the most noticeable handi-
caps of the team was the lack of support which they have suffered. It was
indeed a great event when there. were more than twenty students out to any
one game, and it is to be wondered that the girls showed the spirit they did.

This season has developed many line swimmers at Northern. and while
some of the boys did not come up to expectations. others surpassed all hopes,
which makes the scales balance.
During the past semester 210 boys have been taught to swim. a record

There have been ninth. tenth. and eleventh grade championship house
meets. House 324 won the hrst semester meet by a small margin. The
second semester meet was won by House 317.
The outstanding feature of the ninth grade championship was the line
showing of' Charles McQueen of House 312. who captured all the events on
the program, of which there were six.
The teatirre of the tenth grade championship was the taking of six out
of seven points by Frank Xkalaitis of House 208. Russell Smith ot the
same house took the other eventfthe plunge.
The eleventh grade championship has not been decided as the Viking
goes to press. There is no twelfth grade championship.
The feature ot the 111111115 swimming was the rounding into form luv
Donald McClellan of House 317, star breast stroker. Don won the 220-yard
breast stroke in the National A. .X. C. meet in Pittsburg a short time ago.
ln the city meet "Don" came across wit.h a victory in the 100 and 220-yard
breast strokes. ln the state meet McClellan took lirst place in his usual
tine style in the 100 and 220-yard breast strokes. ln the. Chicago meet.

Clellan and Smith were the only ones from Northern who dualitied for the
tinals, which were held April 6. lXlcClellan. in his usual line style. came
across with a tirst place in the 100-yard breast stroke. Smith did not do as
well as was expected, failing to even place.
Xkhile the Detroit representatives did not win the meet. thev were not
in last place and must be given credit for endeavoring to put the names of
their schools on the map.

Girls' Wimming Team
HE girls' swimming team has pulled through an unusually successful
season, despite the fact that the city swimming meet was lost to South-
eastern by two points, Northern being second. The reason for this
was the disqualification of the Northern relay team in the preliminaries. Up
to the event of the relay Northern was ahead of her nearest opponent,
Southeastern. But in spite of this piece of bad luck, the girls' swimming
team put up a stiff light, and many exceptional records were achieved.
The preliminaries for the city meet brought to light some unusual
talent, and many of the Northern girls qualified for the. finals. Among these
were: Estelle North, Jessie Mallot, Margaret Nixon, May Doherty, Gert-
rude North, Dot McVVood, Alice Van Hee, Helen johnson, Dorothy Rusch.
Eva james, Lenore Lewellen, and Irene Field.
Many of the girls will graduate this term, leaving a large gap in the
team, but it is sure that others will come to the fore. and Northern will still
preserve her old record as the best in acquatic sports.

been interesting but increasingly painful. He knew now that he didn't hate
girls, that he loved oneg but he was still afraid. He had had glimpses of
Sue's roomg there were too many photographs on her dresser. He had no
desire to add his to her collectiong besides she wouldn't want it--he was
too homely. But he lived for the evenings in the plush parlor.
The event of the season was the Masonic ball. It was an occasion long-
heralded. Sue had said he was improving so fast he would be ready for it.
Perhaps, then, she expected him to take her. He had a panicky joy at the
thought of it.
But on the very day he had planned to invite her, he passed her on
the drugstore corner, talking to Harry Probst. He caught enough of their
conversation to know they were speaking of the dance. It seemed to John
that the sun had suddenly gone out. Harry had asked Sue, of course, He
had seen them together before. It was natural that a girl as pretty as Sue
should be taken into the town bunch.
Hammond avoided further evenings in the parlor and winced at the very
mention of them.
When the now hateful ball was but two days away, Beth overtook
him as he was leaving school. "Slow up! Wait for me! You're not catch-
ng a train!" she exclaimed breathlessly. She began in ,her impetuous way,
"John Hammond, youire the most incomprehensible person. You never do
what one expects of you!"
john was used to Bethls scoldingsg she gave them often and claime.d
they were good for him. "W,hat have I done now?,' he asked.

"It's what you haven't done," she replied. "I don't suppose it's my
affair, but I can't see Sue miss that dance by waiting your pleasure."
"Yes, tl1at's you all over-to go around thinking and imagining things
that never are. Wake up and hear the birds sing! But don't you dare let
Sue know I butted ing she'd be awfully cross."
He invited Sue that night, but he felt he made an awkward mess of it,
trying to explain his delay.
john let it be known early that he would not return to Springwells.
The subject was discussed at the Ryan table.
"VVe hear you're not coming back," said Sue. She put a kind, regretfnl
note in her voice.
'Tm not," he replied briefly.
"Why-where-what are you going to do?" asked Beth, bluntly.
'Tm going into commercial chemistry," he said stiffly. "There's a big
opportunity in that line, and much better mone.y than in teaching. I've had
a good offer."
Other ears listened. "VVhere is it?" questioned Mr. Pent. People are
always reluctant to credit success,
"I'm considering a position with the McAlpine Company-at St. Paul,

All spring John worked for long hours in the laboratory, denying him-
self almost every pleasure. In work he found some solace, and then, too, he
was making some important experiments.

The ball opened new worlds to Hammond. He sent to the city for his
first dress suit, struggled an hour with a weird collar and tie, and, for the
first time, presented a lady with a corsage bouquet. The thought of pro-
grams was disconcerting. He must ask men to exchange dances, but he
couldn't dance with anyone but Sue.
"Sue," he asked hoarsely, as they neared the Temple, now aflame with
lights, "would you-er-mind a straight?"
"Oh, no," she replied loyallyg "I'd like it. We'll get all kinds of practice
in a place large enough to turn around in."
For the lirst few dances John moved cautiously, He had never known
floors so slippery. Once he would have measured his length had not Sue
held him firmly. Then, too, he was conscious that his rented evening clothes
fitted none too exactly. But, as the evening wore on, all misgivings van-
ished. With the most beautiful of girls in his arms, he felt himself gliding
smoothly, rhythmically through space. He was oblivious to the presence of
all others in the crowded roomy he and Sue were alone.
Then reality shattered his illusion. They were jostled by another couple,
and John, thrown forward, stepped on Suefs slim gold pump.
"I'm so awkward!" he exclaimed ruefully.
The music had stopped. It was intermission-the time to balance plates
and cups of slopping coffee on uneven knees. "Why must people have
refreshments?" John asked himself savagely, as he stood in line to get Sue's.
Why intrude such earthly things into his dream?

john could scarcely carry the coffee backg his knees were castanets.
Harry Probst was standing before Sue: a large box of candy lay in her lap.
Harry greeted him with a levity he did not like.
"Well, old man, I see she. did itl 1've had a box of candy up for months
for the Hrst girl who could get you to dance. It's Miss Browns all rightg
I'll say s,he's earned it!"
Hammond was seeing red. He wanted to smash things or cry. "Fool!
fool!" he called himself. "1 have been their jest!"
His feet were lead after that. He was relieved when Sue pleaded a
headache and asked to go home.. She thanked him for a good time! Perhaps
she had had one-at his expense. Or, if she had gone because she was "sorry
for himf' she needn't waste her pity any more.
For the rest of the winter Hammond hibernatcd, coming out of his den
only for long solitary tramps. Beth, piqued at his taciturnity, had frankly
pronounced him impossibleg and Sue was accepting attentions from Harry
Probst. On the nights Harry called, john was tormented by the sound of
his rival's ,harsh mirth. He thought desperately of moving, but there were
no other roojns available..

One late May afternoon he was engaged in determining the amount of
arsenic in arsenic ore. The beauty of the spring outside was filling his tired
mind with vague, half-formed desires. Connecting a tube with the hydrogen
generator, he ignited the hydrogen without testing its purity. The air re-
maining in the tube caused a loud explosion. Glass Hew in all directions.
john thought 'his sight was gone. Clapping his hands to his eyes, he stag-
gered back dizzily, falling heavily against a table.
As his benumbed senses resumed their functions, it seemed as though
he were in a land far away. His head was resting upon something soft,
while hands as sure and gentle as his mother's were parting the hair from
a jagged cut upon his head. He did not open his eyes until the hands ceased
their ministrations and someone moved to the door. Then, as she slipped
out, he saw it was Sue. How had she come? Yes, he remembered now,
she must have stayed to prepare the banque.t her class was to give the fac-
ulty tomorrow. She had probably heard him fall. How good of her to come
in-to be sorry for him!
When she returned, ,he lay as she had left him. It hurt less to keep his
sniarting eyes closed, and, if he opened them, she might go away. She was
bathing his face, How delightfully cooling it was!
Then John Hammond experienced a sensation which, if not pain, was
near akin to it in excruciating bliss. She kissed him-a long, full kiss! It
wasn't sympathyg he was sure at last!

singing of the hymn. In the midst of the service everyone. gasped to see
coming from opposite sides of the church to the altar, their eyes downcast
so that they did not see ,each other, their steps bringing them to a common
meeting place before the pulpit, Mrs. Carey and Mrs. Thorne moving slowly
toward their doom. The worshippers who were in the aisles of the church
stopped short, the singers in the choir ceased the song and began to whisper
behind their books, the organist turned around and lost the key, while the
preacher stared with amazement, fully expecting to be called on to stop a
light in the next two minutes.
The two women, noting the cessation of the singing, paused before
kneeling at the chancel. And for the first time since they had entered the
house, they looked at each other. A scowl crossed the faces of both, and
then recollecting their purpose in coming to the altar they both seemed to
re-hear the words of the invitation, "Ye that do truly repent of your sins
and are in love and charity with your neighbors, draw near with faith." Love
and charity with your neighbors! It had been a year since that could be
said of them. Charity! They had lost it, and they had presumed to take
part in the sacrament which represented the greatest example of charity
the world had ever known! Both trembled, visibly, under the realization
of their great presumption. Mrs, Carey threw her hands to her face and
wept audibly, while the congregation stood paralyzed with wonder and

expectation, And then, to the intense relief of all who were looking on,
Mrs. Thorne put her arms around the shaking form of her former friend
and kissed the grief-distorted face amid endless repetitions of the word,
The congregation broke into a shout. Some said that Old Man Car-
penter lost his voice at the end of ten minutes, while others declared that
he kept it for a good fifteen. The preacher shook so violently that he nearly
lost his balance and was forced to lean upon the pulpit for support. How
he finished the communion service he could never tell afterwards, but the
choir swung into the doxology two keys high and shrieked through to the
end, and somebody took the benediction for granted and the congregation
surged forward to give the right hand of fellowship to the penitents.
The first to leave the church was the postmaster. He covered the dis-
tance to the office, some said, in nothing flat. He got the door unlocked and
dashed into the space partitione.d off by the rows of mail boxes. The valen-
tine, he remembered, was in the Thorne's box, he had put it there the evening
before, after closing time. Hastily, and almost guiltily, he jerked it forth.
A dull bed of coals still glowed in the rickety stove. He tossed the envelope
into the brightest spot and watched the paper turn a slow brown, then blaze
merrily for an instant and die down, into a crinkled sheet of black.
"Hang the. inspector," he said emphatically.
