We, the class of June, 1922, having completed the. required number of hours. necessary for our graduation from this institution, and realizing that in doing so have sorely taxed our overworked brains, feel it our duty to leave to those who follow in our footsteps, certain accomplishments, which we now deem to be unworthy for ourselve.s to hold any longer.

Fifty-five THE VIKING I, Josephine Coope.r, will my curly locks to those poor Bobbies who spend their nights with the "kids"f?j I, "Bill" Copp, do most gladly leave to Mr. Newbro my gray hair. It is my wish that he use it for experimental purposes, and thus perfect a sister remedy to the already world-renowned "I-lerpicidef' I, Florence Coughlin, bequeath my knowledge of French to anyone not expecting to travel in France. I, Grace Davis, being too illiterate myself to do it, do bequeath to ayone whom Mr. C, Barnes considers a fit subject, the privilege of writing a book entitled "Great Ohioan Statesmenn or "Ohio-and President Production on a Large Scale." I, Elwyn Delahunte, being in an unsually serious frame of mind, do solemnly bequeath to "Marge" Dyer my ill-fortune of getting into "hot water," along with the knack of emerging with a grin, and to Ellen Grinnell my reputation of being the "House Scamp" in hopes that she will live it down. I, "Don" Dunham, having outgrown my Blowtorch Safety Razer, do hereby pass it on to the next most worthy of it, in my mind, "johnny" Seiler, the boy detective. I, Dort Dyhr, do hereby leave my pencil stubs and French papers to the occupant of locker 344.

I, Annabel Edelman, will my chemistry QU and Q22 experiments to the unfortunate person who is in need of them. Experiments are well written and have all necessary equations.

' I, Charlotte Guthard, do hereby will to Violet Eisenhart my greatest ability-the art of blushing. D I, Helen Johnson, will my lost paint-brush to "Slicker" Parker and "Moses" Nolan in the hopes that their artistic selections of pretty girls will never cease. I, Jennie Kiely, hereby bequeath my ability to get away with whispering in class to anyone who has the bad fortune of getting caught. ' I, Leo Frank, hereby leave my sleight-of-,hand ability to Albert Brown, the famous checker player.

I, Ruth Moore, being of sound mind and weak heart, do hereby bequeath to Miss Bacon, my ability to arrive at school at 7:30 A. M. each morning. I, Howard Neufer, do leave to Mr. Wolff my knowledge of chemistry Cwhich I have gained in so short a period.

I, Katherine St. Amour, will to Julia Heavey my ability to become either president or vice-president of House 207, in hopes that she may be less frivolous when she obtains same. Not being entirely aware of the circumstances surrounding this propo- sition, I, john Strohm, being in a very unusual state of mind, take great delicacy in articulating that I bequeath my fond love for arguing with our profesors on such technicalities as lessons to Thomas Merrill. I, Don Smith, being of unsound mind, will to -one, Elgy Carl Rolfe, my ability to sleep during very trying periods in physics class. I, Kenneth Wickware, do hereby leave to the freshmen my vast store of knowledge, chiefly acquired through my well-known investigations in the field of science and in the realm of the modern languages. To the freshmen I say: always be kind and indulgent with your teachers if they should come to you for advice do not assume a haughty mien, but rather act with a simple dignity and generosity which will endear you to all. We, the rest of us, having little or nothing to leave, do will the sum total 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 nine hundred and twenty-two. THE CLASS OF JUNE, 1922. Fifty-seven THE VIKING lawn rnphvrg 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. Hiainn H9112 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. v Fifty-eight ent Ere T H E V I K I N G Hiainn Srrnnh 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 Were Alfred Lorch and Carl Choinereg 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. Fifty-nine T H E V I K I N G Hininn Elhirh 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?

Sixty-two THE VIKING 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 reasonable length. 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. Sixty-three 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, 1921. 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.

True, she did not look the part, she had no weaponsg not even concealed ones, but then Diana was not out to kill. 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 and unlikely, 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 Sixty-six THE VIKING 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 him. 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 their bench. 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 first. - "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 de size of dat guy's, I'd holler for a copper, and he'd find de bird it used to belong to!" "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 Sixty-seven ,THE VIKING 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.

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 maturity. 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 'thout herf' 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!" Seventy THE VIKING "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 laughed at." "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 CCOntinucd on page One Hundred Sd-vcnty-twoj Seventy-one T H E V 1 K 1 N e 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. Seventy-two THE VIKING Hands 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- prints?" "Finger prints," I corrected, and added with evil intent, "Yes, the only prints a -cop likes are his own, full length, made in a hammock slung in a shady corner." "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 knew--" " '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, "Damn him!" "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 Seventy-three THE VIKING 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 once married. "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 one hand. 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." "Hurt bad?" "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." O. FISHER.

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 Seventy-six THE VIKING 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 motheris name. "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 you think?" "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 tunes: "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-" Seventy-seven THE VIKING Lat Nfff N L...Jf -1 HQ31' 1 1 A f 9 fc?

The Masonic Temple, a neat building r C of gray stucco to which the townsmen point- I 5 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 support. r 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.

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 Eighty THF, YIKING X?-Y..

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 drills. 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 range rifles. 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. . Eighty-three ' lf ' 51 r Jim . i W i ' i T H E V I K I N G 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 society. 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 success. The members at present are: Sterling Smith, Arthur Johnson, VVilliam Evans, Douglas Moe, Fred Weideman, Frank Atkinson, Pointer Bradley, Wilfred Burke, Martin Butzel, Jack Blanchard, Francis Bowen, George Dixon, Lewis Freidman, Maynard Kearney, Andrew Klein, Randall Kohler, Frank Lau, Robert McKnight, jack Milligan, Duncan Pirie, Russell E.

ZLL lgiiil , NORTHERN SENATE PIPI Eighty-five THE VIKING 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- riculumf' 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 Kinmont, Andrew Klein, Evelyn Klein, Randall Kohler, Anne Matheson. Beatrice Mintz. Gertrude Moag. Carol Piper, Marcia Putnam. Allen Rasch, Ruth Raymond, Ruth Sanders, Thomas Schelbe, Frances Se.xton, Elizabeth Shier, Louise Shier, Alice Tibetts, Boyer Wenger. Sl a sh A FOSTRA cnua PIN Eighty-seven THE VIKING Eighty-eight THE VIKING 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- plete reorganization. Recently the club increased the membership from about twenty to thirty. The members at present are as follows: Benton Dempsey. Donald Dunham, James England, Fred. Graf. James Lightbody, Lincoln Parker, Herrick Peacock, Sterling Smith, Kenneth Smith, Thorn Smith, Ford Spikerman. Murray Spitzer, Fred Weideman, Richard Young, Jack Baker. Kenneth Van Hee. Stuart Robinson, George Hester, Everett Paush- ert. William Lore, james Lafer, Warner McVicar, and Robert McKnight. J Eighty-nine THE VIKING Ninety w-f-my-'f:'zi":-ww-'ff-. , .rw 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, NORTHE S SIMS PIN N inety-one THE VIKING The Euterpe Club 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. Ninety-three THE VIKING Ninety-four THE VIKING 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 Reid, treasurer. 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.

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. NORTHERN Fmolo awe PIN Ninety-six ,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 occasion. 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. Ninety-seven 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 team. 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. Ninety-nine THE VIKING Om- Hundrccl THE VIKING 1 Mr. and Mrs. Arthur H. J. Searle I . . . 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- ka, ZClCl8.AEI'Il1ZlI'1, Mildred Grant, Bryant Pocock, Clifford Whitiiey, Frances VVadsworth, Helen Milowsky, Jonas Newman, May Euffa, M. Blumens, Reva Goldberg, Esther Rubin, H. Robinson, B. Rogers, Charle.s Moyer, Katherine Brown, Dorothy Goss, H. Goldberg, H. Reeves, Schaeffer, VVelma Renneson, Edwin Nielson, Frank Walaitis, Herman- Grant, Bertha Broad, Floyd Banasack, Jack Brabb, VVm. Langer, Hanson Wescmmtt, Jessie Dancer, Rose Rodin, Bessie Kosogled, Harold Bennett, and Carlisle Camp- bell. The orchestra has several times entertained the members of the Rotary and Twentieth Century Clubs, and has played at the Majestic Theater. Orchestra Hall, and many other places of equal repute. It has mastered many such compositions as the Peer Gynt Suite, Raymond Overture. Ballet Music, Faust, Stradella Overture, Poet and Peasant Overture, and Ballet Sylvia. One Hundred One THE VIKING 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, George Tonak. One Hundred Two 7 Y WWVSW NW N N5 X A W N QM ws C f THE VIKING House. XVILQSON J Woodrow Wilson House OODROW WILSON HOUSE has just completed one of its most successful terms. 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, Benny Dempsey, 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 swimming team. 324 is represented on the varsity baseball team by: Conklin, I. Cole, Daugherty, john Basset, and Dempsey. Inter-house baseball, track and tennis are being taken up enthusiastically by the Wilsonites and many prom- ising athletes are being developed. One Hundred Four THE VIKING l HOUSE. ALICE. FREEMAN 6- Ji Alice Freeman Palmer House I.lL'E FREEMAN PALMER HOUSE ,has completed another satisfac- tory school years. The officers for this term are: President, Anne Savage, vice-president, Hazel Whitley, secretary, Dorothy Raschg treasurer, Florine Elliott. The following girls are chairmen of the various committees: Athletic, D, McVVoodg Decoration, V. Neville, Entertainment, W. Benedict, Library, C. Stephens, Scholarship, G. Andrewsg Service, M. Power, Tardy, G. Grant. The house has practiced self-government during the entire year. Miss Hayner was absent on one occasion and the girls had complete charge of the graderoom. The boards have been artistically decorated by Vera Neville, Dorothy Eberline, Alice Moore, Katherine MacGlashan, Genevieve Mavis, Marion Power, and Anne Savage.. 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 Miss Hayner. 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. One Hundred Five THE VIKING .45-ii. j .1 xx 'i--- : aff 43.

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 able and will continue to be able to give its best for the school. One Hundred Six, THE VIKING I-nous ri MAQY 6AlVll3l.iE. lf' Mary Gamble House ACH YEAR the girls of the house start off with a little more deter- mination to make their house better. They are especially fortunate in having for their principal Miss Alice M. Corns, whose understand- ing of girls and her co-operation with them does much to instill a line house spirit. That the Mary Gamble girls work for their house is evident. The posi- tion held by the house testifies to this fact. They have made a record selling tickets and have won several beautiful pictures which now decorate the walls. The girls rank high in athletics, holding the cup for track and one 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- comers are initiated into the art of being a true 'GMARY GAMBOLER.'y' Gnep formal party was given, at which Mr. E. L. Miller lead the grand march with the house president. At the end of each term the l2B's give a farewell party to the seniors in the house, The girls are presented with pink roses. and the Log Book is handed down from the president of the seniors to the 12B president. Each grade in the house is organized and ,has its own officers. Self- government is carried out, the 12A's electing the house officers from among themselves. This term the house officers are: Mary Ferguson, presidentg Katherine St. Amour. vice-presidentg Owena Gaffney, treasurerg Virginia Owen, sec- retary. Mary Gamble House is growing bigger and better each term, and is at the top of the ladder in fine fellowship. One Hundred Seven THE VIKING H OU SE EOHN -Jew House of John Marshall ITH the termination of school activities, June, 1922, closes its most active and successful term in the history of the John Marshall House. The house officers who successfully piloted the ship of John Marshall for the past five months are: Charles Oakman, president, james Light- body, vice-president, Wallace Orr, secretary, Charles Owen, treasurer. The representatives who comprise the remainder of the house council: Mclinight, Parker, Mellick, Rezanka, Marshall, Phillips, MacDonald, and Mclntosh. The policy of the john Marshall House, as voiced by the house council, is to promote: better scholarship, better house and varsity athletics. general improvement of the house and school, and better fellowship. There has been a marked improvement in scholarship and the eradica- tion of tardiness. ln ,house athletics 317 has been well to the fore, Our athletics won for the house track and swimming championships, and were 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. Nine thinclads from john Marshall House helped to represent Northern on the cinder and cork paths. They are: Lewis, McKnight, Mercer, Nonen, Parker, Paushert, and Pederson. jim Lightbody, Northern's star pitcher for the past three seasons, Morrison, Mellick, Nolan, and Roehm represent Northern on the varsity nine. "Torn" Clemens' proteges are: McClellan, Peacock, Rohn, Maidment, and McQueen. Don McClellan holds the National Senior breaststrike 220 yard championship, besides many other records. President Charles Oakman represents 317 on Nort,hern's League Champion- ship Debating Team, besides being toastrnaster of the 12A class at the annual banquet, june 20. Mr. Merritt has said that the present house council is the most active and energetic body that ever governed the house: but the acts and energy of the house council would have been spent in vain had it not been for the co-operation and assistance of the worthy house principal, Mr. Merritt, and the backing of the student body. One Hundred Eight THE VAIKING HQUSEL OF JANa. Aoozms X ,lane Addams House llE girls of -lane Addams House have put forth a great deal of effort to follow the spirit of -lane Addams, The House Council, which consists of a girl chosen from each grade. has spent much of its time to bring the spirit of "Co-operation" into the house. The girls chosen for this task were: Elizabeth Fikes, Margaret Reid, Marion Lightbody, Eleanor Hodewig, Shauna Rice., Marian Fikes, Dorothy Munro, and Elizabeth Munz. The iirst meeting of the council was held to elect the officers for the coming year. The girls selected were: lf'resident-Elizabeth Fikesg vice-president, Marion Lightbody, secre- tary, Eleanor Bodewigg treasurer, Margaret Reid. The committees were then appointed and are as follows: Scholarship-Ethel Moore, Dorothy Munro, Alice liales, Bessie Riske, Phylis Ferries. Decoration-Dorothy Armstrong, Alice Hirschmann, Marian Sibley. Clean-up-jean Nesbit, Marian Martin, Elmore Riley, Hella Kitten. Social-Eleanor Bodewig, Alice Hirschmann, Dorothy Munro, Elizabeth Munz, Shanna Rice, Betty Chapin, Dorothea liachmann, Helen Greenspan. VVith this efhcient crew, -lane Addams llouse set sail with Hying colors. One of the first things to be mentioned is the splendid decorating of the boards. Our motto, "Co-operation." needs special mention. Our boards are 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. One Hundred Nine THE VIKING I-louse. THOMAS EDISON 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 debating team. 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. One Hundred Ten THE VIKING House. CLARA BAQTON 2 fl .oem Clara Barton House OUSE 307 girls started the term with their usual promptness and pep. The officers were elected early in the semester. They are: Josephine Cooper, president, Marjorie Kerr, vice-president, Alice Tibbetts, secretary, Helen Johnson, treasurer. The members of the House Council are: Jean Aiken, l2A, Jean ,Rich- ardson, l2B, Jessie Nixon, l1A, Anna Moore, llB, Kathryn Bennett, 10A, Romayne Thompson, IOB, Blanche VVilliams, QA, and Francis Smith, 9B. To relieve Miss Sutherland of a few of her responsibilities, the system of self-government was started, with a student in charge of the grade-room 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, Cornelia Kerkhof, 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 friends.

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: A B C D E X Total Unsatisfactory Percent 1920 ........ ll 23 60 16 12 2 124 30 24 1921 ........ 16 35 42 17 9 1 120 27 20 These showings are fair but not good e.nough.

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- panied it. 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 Hough, ex-President of Northwestern University, Amos Alonzo Stagg, University of Chicago, Horatio S. Earle, Good Roads, William Heyliger, Author, J. Duncan Spaeth, Princeton University, V. M. Ilihibaksh, Calcutta, Mrs. Laura F. Osborn, 130 Lawrence Ave., Edward Devine, 827 Majestic Bldg., Samuel C. Mumford, Detroit Edison Bldg., Allan Campbell, 2017 Dime Bank Bldg., John S. Hall, 707 David Whitney Bldg., Andrew P. Biddle, 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 THE VIKING 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. EDWIN L. MILLER Principal One Hundred Eighteen THE VIKING One Hundred Nineteen THE VIKING One Hundred Twenty THE VIKING -..al A Ona Hundred Twenty-one 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.

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- son, 14. 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. One Hundred Twenty-five T H E V K I N G 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 Northern me.n to place in the Y run and the places they were finally awarded are: K. Smith, 7thg Koppelo, l5thg Bailey, 16th, McVicar, 23rdg T. Smith, 33rd. 7 40 Une Hundred Twenty-six THE VIKING 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. One Hundred Twenty-seven THE VIKING 42 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 matches. 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. Creditis due to Mr. Allman for hs work in coaching and managing the team.

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.

Bluch of the erecht for the teanfs gaining such a.lofty posiufuiis due to the untiring work of Coach Earl E. Xlfatkins, who, with only three veterans, Benton Dempsey, lanies Lightbody, and James Casey, acting as a nucleus. built a hard-lighting, smooth-going, consistent machine. In the lneluninary garnes of the season liorthern suuunped NNindsor Ckilegiate Institute by the score of 32-17.

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. House Basketball 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. At the end of the house basketball season the following were selected for the all -house teams: LIGHT DIVISION First Second Roehm 317 ........... .........

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 did, 41-23. 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. One Hundred Thirty-six THE VIKING Girls' Reserve Basketball lllz past terin has heen the hrst that Northern has had a Girls' Reserve haslcethall team.

Th S ' ' Team 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 in itself, due. to the expert coaching of Tom Clemens, swimming instructor at Northern. 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. April 6. 'tl3on" won the 100-yard breast stroke in the national interscholastic championship tinals. A .Xpril 3 was the date of the preliminaries of the National lnterscholastir Swimming Championship in Chicago. Northern had four repr:-sentatives- Donald McClellan, Russell Smith, Robert Rohn. and Herrick Peacock. Mc- 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. One Hundred Forty-one THE VIKING 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.

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.

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.

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! His eyelids Huttered open. "You knew!" Sue cried, flushing deeply. John caught her trembling hand and pressed it against his lips. Then his hurt eyes closed again, but his face relaxed into a ,happy smile. THE END J. M.

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 Cfoufiinura' on page 1741 Make a Bank Connection And make it early in life.

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. -THE END- eecf Cleaning or Dyeing?
