Chapter Y-May 1. 1919-May 1, 1920
By Edwin L. Miller
XYhen Northwestern was opened February 1, 1914, its teachers numbered
18 and its pupils -165. On May 1, 1920, the teachers of the school numbered
128 and the pupils 2,7-12, 1,280 boys and 1,-162 girls. Of the original 18 teach-
ers. there remain Miss Alley. Miss Fox, Mr. jones, Mr. Knorr, Mr. Maris,
Miss Orth, Mr. lYentworth, and Miss Miilson.

these 25 teachers, many of them leaders, has not improved the morale of the
school. though their places for the most part have been filled by able suc-
The following new teachers have been added to the faculty since May 1.

The most noteworthy event of the year was Mr. Chapman's promotion
In the principalship of XVestern High School. Next in importance come the
appointment of Mr. john Y. Brennan and Mr. Byron J. Rivett as assistant
principals of Northwestern.
Un .Xpril 30, 1920, 808 pupils were studying commercial subjects, 700 free
hand drawing, 738 domestic art and science, 2,965 English, 1,846 foreign lan-
guages, 1.847 history, 315 manual training, 3,189 mathematics, 1,712 physical
training, 80-l science, 951 music, 140 R. Q. T. C.. and 345 mechanical drawing.
During the year the school has done well in athletics. The football team.
under Mr. Bovill, won the State Championship: the basketball team, under
Mr. Maris, duplicated this feat: and the 1920 track team carried off first
honors by a wide margin in the annual city indoor meet and the M. .X. Lf
state championship meet, their leader being Mr. hlames.
Northwestern in june, 1920, will have graduated nine classes, as follows:
lloys Girls Total

ln the fall of 1919 the U. Navy offered a captured German cannon as
zu prize for the best essay written by a Detroit high school pupil on the subject,
"1Yhy I Should Join the Navy." Marion vl. Chapman of Northwestern won,
and N. R. 153, a big Krupp naval piece, accordingly adorns a concrete pedestal
in front of the school.
During the year several dramatic and musical events of great merit have
been given by the pupils of Northwestern. Noteworthy among these were
the :Xlcestis of Euripides, under the direction of Miss Roehmg "Feed the
Brute," coached by Miss Getteniyg and Victor Herbert's "Serenade," directed
by Miss Starr. The Work of Miss Simpson in managing the costumes, and
of Miss VVhitney in producing the scenery for these plays was ef a high
order of merit.
At the end of June, 1920, a bronze tablet carrying the names of the 104
Northwestern boys who served in the Great VX7ar will probably be in place.
To Miss Florence Hill is due the credit for collecting the necessary data
for this memorial.
In .-Xpril, 1920, occurred an event of great significance. For the first time
in the history of the school a boys' house beat a girls' house in scholarship.
This feat was accomplished by Lincoln House, under the direction of Mr.
Austin F. Jones. The standing of the house for the term to date was 1.65,
which was superior to Mt. Vernon's 1.627, .loan of Arc's 1.58. Browning's 1.61,
and Austen's 1.56. VVhether or not this result was due to segregation or to
some other cause cannot be determined until more data are available.
The school at present has an enrollment nearly 1,000 in excess of its
capacity. To prevent this congestion from becoming more serious, Grade 713
was eliminated in September, 1919, and Grade 7A in February, 1920. In pur-
suance of this policy, Grade 8B will disappear in September, 1920, and Grade
8-51 in February, 1921. VVhether Grades 913 and 9A later shall likewise be
taken out of the school is not yet decided, but this is probable. Ultimately
Grades 7. 8, and 9 will, it is likely, be housed in several intermediate schools,
and Grades 10, 11, and 12 in a greatly enlarged and improved Northwestern
1-ligh School building.
Blue and gray were the chosen colors of
the January, 1920, class. and their motto was,
"They can who think they can." A successful
career went hand in hand with such a motto.
Of their undertakings the greatest was un-
doubtedly the plays, "Feed the Brute," and
"Christmas Chimes," which put in their pos-
session a fund that, after making the custom-
ary allotment to the city scholarship fund, al-
lowed them to donate 330 to further the re-
modeling of the auditorium stage.
The plays themselves deserve more than
mere mention. Cf the great number applying
for parts, the following were chosen for their
clever delivery. For "Feed the Brute" were
Ralph Chrysler, Mary Early, and Virginia
Moran, while the cast of "Christmas Chimes"
consisted of Catherine McDade, Margaret Silk,
Edward Porath, and Kinsey Tanner.
Two dances were given, the one a dance
and reception for the parents, held after the
class plays, the other on December 29.
The banquet at the Board of Commerce,
XYednesday, january 29, was followed the next
evening by commencement exercises at Cen-
tral High School, where Mr. Fred Butzel was
speaker. Here live "cum laude" diplomas were
Zlwilrtled. Ricllarcl Rowe, Lloyd Young, Eliza-
beth llayes, Margaret Silk, and Ralph jackson
were the ones so fortunate as to receive these.
Two in the class, Edward Kupka and George
l'almer, climbed to highest scholarship honors,
"summa cum laude" diplomas. There were
three others in the class who won distinction,
not by scholarly, but by athletic ability. Arthur
Springsteen, Ralph Perkins, and Kinsey Tan-
ner will long be remembered at Northwestern
as in the first rank of the all-around athletes
Representing this class, and greatly re-
sponsible for its success, were the officers:
l'resident, Kinsey Tannerg vice-president, Eliz-
abeth llayes: secretary, Ada Snyder, and
treasurer, Gail Cole.

The 1919-1920 year of the Northwestern High School Alumni has beenla
highly profitable one for all concerned. The Alumni are back on a peace basis.
just as is every other organization, and the freer hand that this condition
gives the organization is widely felt. The purpose of the association for the
past year has been to further the interest in the high school. This has been
the function of the various events throughout the year: to make the Alumni
part of Northwestern the biggest outside booster for the school.. At the
present time there are over seven hundred members in the association, sev-
enty-five of which number are attending the University of Michigan. This
large representation at Ann Arbor is an aid both in making a name for the
graduates of Northwestern at the university, and in helping the "green" high
school graduate to learn the whys, the wherefores, and the whos of campus
life. The association at home is trying, and trying successfully, to hold thi:
graduates together and to keep up their interest in the old school. The suce
cess of this policy is shown by the strong Alumni representation at the vari-
ous school activities. and at the meetings and social events of the Alumni
ln june of 1919, at the regular election of officers, the following were
chosen to hold ofhce for the year: President, Sidney Coatesg vice-president.
Yera Hayes: corresponding secretary, Yera Prather: recording secretary.
Lelia Durkett: treasurer, Burdette liappes: chairman of the executive board.
The executive board consisted of Clarence Blanchard, Florence Fox, and
Harold Channer, with Hfalter Couse as acting chairman, due to absence of
the regular chairman. The Ann Arbor committee consists of Freda Stewart
and Clarence Kauffman.
The first social event of the season was the Fall Party, given at Oregon
Hall. Everybody had a good time, as is the custom at all Alumniiparties.
Then came the fall meeting with a dance afterwards. At this meeting a
pledge of S50 was made to the scholarship fund, which fund has proved ex-
tremely helpful to graduates attending the University of Michigan. The
big social event was the annual dance. held during the Christmas vacation. It
was a big successg and, in the opinion of some, the success was made greater
by the absence of lights for certain periods throughout the evening. Candles
were quickly placed at opportune points, however, and the party was carried
through to a happy ending. ln February came the second regular meeting
of the year. Then on April 17, 1920, came the big spring party, given at
3lcCollester lelall. Every person there had the time of his life, and went
l'-ome with the feeling that the Northwestern Alumni Association knew how
to give its members a "real" time. The well-known excursion to Bob-Lo
was held on june 12. The above statement is enoughg everybody knows what
a trip to Bob-l.o with the right crowd means. Then on june 19 came the last
meeting of the fiscal year, a year of steady advancement.
The work and influence of the association is an ever-increasing one, and,
:is the high school grows in years, the Alumni Association must increase the
-'cope of its influence and make each year more successful than the one pre-

t. Vernon House C
Mt. Vernon is the happy home of the
A B C's. The graderoom is simply filled
with sunshine and school spirit. lrVash-
ington gazes down from the wall with
paternal eyes. Clever headings for the
all l's, the sport news, and various other '
activities grace the blackboards. The entire aspect of the room is bright
The formidable-looking cannon which stands in front of the school was
won for Northwestern by Marion Chapmon, who wrote the best essay in the
city on the subject, "NVhy I should like to join the navy." A very interesting
dictionary contest, held between the various English classes, finally resulted
in placing Alma Chapman as Winner. She was presented with a large dic-
tionary as a reward for her efforts.
Mt. Vernon house is well represented in the Senate Cabinet by Dorothy
Boillotat and Olive Buchner, the same two girls also having won positions
on the Senate debating team.
During the first part of the second semester, the 129 girls of Mt. Vernon
held a very successful tea for their mothers and teachers. Bouquets of pussy-
willows and daffodils adorned various parts of the room. A clever little song,
a parody on 'Tm Forever Blowing Bubbles," was sung with great delight by
the 12A's. and met with sincere approval.
The Mt. Vernon dance, given May 1, was a wonderful success. The
Ugym' was made attractive by long streamers of buff and blue, draped in
graceful festoons around the room. Various outstanding features of this
dance were the confetti, the line music and the amusing dance rendered by
two boys, ludicrously dressed.
The French baby clubs have done very well. and Mt. Vernon house itself
takes care of an interesting little orphan.
The house has been fortunate in possessing very capable officers. for
Bettv Browne was president last term, and llrwina Black this term. Frances
Brett also deserves praise for the excellent work she has done as chairman
of the social committee.
Indeed. an unusual amount uf school spirit and pep have been shown by
the A B C's of Mt. Yernon.
oan of Arc House j
,loan of -Xrc House, which enjoys the
reputation of being full of life and en
thusiasm. has been living up to her name
during the past year.
She has achieved many honors, priu-
cipal among which was the winning of
the shining silver cup that now adorns the bookcase. This cup was the
prize awarded to the champions of the inter-house basketball tournament.
The spirit of the house was kept bubbling over all the year by frequent
pep rallies held at records, at which cheers, the many lively house songs, and
little speeches were given. The co-operation and loyalty of the girls and the
enthusiastic services of the coaches. Miss VValker and Miss Corcoran, con-
tributed much towards the success of the team.
joan of Arc was unfortunate in having Miss Duffy, the principal, absent
for a long time, due to illness, but we are sure that we could not have chosen
a more desirable or competent substitute than Mrs. Rauch, or one who would
have taken more interest in the girls and their activities.
At one of our pep rallies, Mr. jones favored the girls with a very inter-
esting speech on the beneiits to be derived from going in for athletics. As
this particular line of school work is a pleasure to most of us. we could readily
grasp his point of view.
joan of Arc displayed originality when she conceived the idea of observ-
ing Michigan Day, by giving a very delightful program, which consisted of
the singing of U. of M. songs and an enjoyable speech given by Phyllis Yliiley.
a graduate of Northwestern, and now a junior at the U. of M. She pictured
to the girls in glowing terms the many attractions which Ann Arbor holds
for them, if they care to make that college their -Xlma Mater.
Notable among the social events of the year was the St. Patricks dance.
given on March 20, by joan of Arc and Marshall Houses.
Wie have also done our bit towards buying tickets for the various dances,
games, and other activities of the school. That we have taken a keen interest
in everything concerning the school is proved by the fact that nearly all the
year joan of Arc has led all the other girls' houses in the sale of Colts.
We have twenty-live out of our three hundred and forty-eight girls en-
rolled in the senior class, some of whom have attained distinction for them-
selves. Among these is Helen Granzow, who had one of the principal parts
in the "Serenade," and who displayed her ability both as a singer and as an
actress. Helen and Drea Diver were also prominent in the annual vaudeville.
Dorothy Elliott has distinguished herself in athletic circles both at North-
western and at the D. A. C., where she has won many swimming honors.
Hazel Daley, Lydia Felske, and Eleanor Dunlap, will be missed from our
basketball team. Eleanor was an efficient captain.
Kathleen Haley has filled the office of president of our house with the
utmost faithfulness and enthusiasm, and we hope that we may be fortunate
enough to secure another as competent to lead joan of Arc to victory next
year, and to keep her always on the top.
Betsy Ross House
The girls uf lletsy Ross House, Rf'lt"l1l
209, numbered about two hundred ninety
five after the enrollment in Septeinber.
1919. No seventh grades were enrolled
at that time, but there was a large in-
crease in the 9B and 10B classes.
The house started right by electing the best officers that could have been
found. They were Clarice Lamson, President: Virginia Moran, Yice-Presi-
dent, Dorothy Lee, Secretaryg and Josephine McDuf:fee, Treasurer. Under
this able corps of officers. advised by the grade principal, Miss Fox, it cannot
be wondered at that the house accomplished many worth-while things.
As a starter, the constitution was rejuvenated, and new colors, red and
white. were chosen. As soon as the committee had been appointed, they
began to work, and the result was a rousing "Get-Acquaintedn party, under
the supervision of Helen Luckham, Chairman of Social Committee. This
party was given to introduce the newcomers to the customs and people at
Northwestern, in general, and Betsy Ross House in particular, and to renew
the house spirit which had rather died down during the summer. It is hardly
necessary to say that it accomplished both purposes.
In order to raise money to pay for the twenty-three French babies which
the house had adopted, a French Baby Bazaar was held, December 4 and 5.
Some donations were received from girls in the room, and a few grades made
special donations: but, for the 1nost part, materials were bought wholesale,
and given out to the girls to work. For two weeks Room 209 was a hodge-
podge of checkered aprons, towels, cats. and bean bags. VVhen everything
had been straightened out, it was found that seventy-five dollars had been

In choosing the officers in January, the same good judgment was shown
which has always characterized the house. The officers for the January-June
term were: Josephine McDuffee, Presidentg Lois Miller, Vice-President:
Jessie Leader, Secretary, Helen Monteith, Treasurer.
All interest was then concentrated on basketball. VVith the help of Miss
Roehm, some snappy graderoom songs were composed, which helped im-
mensely at the games. Our yell leaders, Rena McColl, Dorothy Knapp, and
Elsie Kessler, fixed up some peppy yells. During the tournament, the team.
with Mrs. Pearl as coach, acquitted itself remarkably well, being beaten only
once, thus winning second place. The girls on this team were: R. McColl.
captain: D. Knapp, G. Mitchell, K. Lothamer, L. Mason, L. Miller, substi-
tutes, F. Jeffers, F. Knapp, A. Miller.
A graderoom party was given on May 7, 1920, under the supervision of
Miriam Mansfield, Chairman of Social Committee.
It has not only been in athletics but also in scholarship that Betsy Ross
has come to the fore. Three of the Seniors in the June class, L. Miller, A.
McKibbon, McDuffee. were awarded "summa cum laude" diploma, while -X.
Milbv, M. Koon, F. Kimberly. and C. Jones received "cum laude" lionors.

see it, and it is over. Our realization
has been granted, and now that the curtain falls, we sit back and think
over the dramatis personae and the various important events. It has been
just so with Browning House. The iirst year was one of merely adapt-
ing ourselves to new surroundings, and, getting used to being alone.
making a record for ourselves. VVe planned and anticipated: and then antici-
pation became realizations. and we could sit back and recall the important
events that had made the time pass only too quickly.
XYe have not been partial to social activities or athletics, but have put
much time and enjoyment in both. About our Christmas dance, the first we
attempted alone, not much need be said. VVith the combination of the "pep5'
of our girls and the co-operation of our grade principal, upon whom it has not
taken us long to place our greatest approbation, we had all that was neces-
sary to make the dance a success. The crowded gymnasium was the result
of our efforts.
Then our "April Fool-Mystery Dance," which we gave jointly with Lin-
coln House. was a greater marvel. NVe have done considerably well in house
reforms and are now so methodically organized that we tick along like clock-
Then, too, we have done much to establish ourselves on at least a begin-
ner's record in athletics. Gut of the rough mettle which presented itself we
have moulded a team which will be worthy of us "some day." We played
with other house teams Qjust for practicej, and they clapped and rooted for
us, either for our good work or perhaps out of pure sympathy. However,
under the able coaching and tutorage of Miss Chamberlain and Miss Brown,
we have hopes of next year's team doing even such a marvelous thing as win-
ning a cup. even if all they won this year was a look of scorn and disdain
from the most worthy teams of joan of Arc and other noted houses.
"Even if we do say it, as we shouldn't," as Barkus says, we have a very
prettily decorated house. Our decorating committee has worked faithfully
and our boards are lilled with a combination of clever and artistic notices.
Although we do live in the basement, we can make it look as pretty as a
room in the upper ethereal regions. Browning House is coming slowly but
surely, and it is to be regretted that the girls who leave in june cannot have a
hand in the perfecting of the many new plans for the future.

ane Austen House
,lane -Xusten House started on the first 5. Q.
semester uf this year with her usual ,y .
amount of pep and enthusiasm. and has 1 X
been gathering momentum ever since the .
y first day. We are larger than ever this g 58,4 f
vear, with three hundred and twentv-two
girls in regular attendance. T
At record of the Friday before Christmas vacation, a grade room party
was held. Of course. there were grab bags, the contents of which caused
much merriment, and every "child" was regaled with a nice candy cane, dec-
orated with red and white.
One of the features of the year was .lane Austen Wfeek. When some
person innocently asked Mrs. Watson whether Jane Austen was some former
teacher of Northwestern, she decided that something had to be done and that
quickly. Every day at record, a short program of one feature was held.
Mr. Miller came up one day and gave a very entertaining account of Jane
Austen's life. Margaret Schaupner gave a report of "Sense and Sensibilityf'
Helen Stuart read some of Jane Austen's letters, and told what kind of
woman she thought Jane Austen must have been, Ruth Sutherland gave a
talk on why Jane Austen should be an inspiration to us: and Dorothy Sober
told about Jane Austen and her books.
Our basketball team deserves special commendation, for, although we
lost our beloved cup to worthy opponents, the girls did splendidly. The team
was somewhat crippled by the advancement of joe Stauffer to the school
team, but we were proud of her for being so highly honored.
This last term the twelfth grade girls entertained Mrs. Gsborn, of the
school board, at an afternoon tea. All teachers and girls in the senior class
of the other grade rooms were invited. A delightful program was rendered
and followed by a social hour during the serving of refreshments. After-
wards, of course, everyone had to sign everyone else's napkin, so that the
teachers certainly worked overtime. Mr. Miller decided to invest in a rubber
stamp, so as to save time in the future. As a result of Mrs. Osborn's visit
several much needed reforms have been put in operation.
One date that will always be remembered in the history of our grade
room was that of the Valentine dance. That dance was "some dance," as
many will heartily testify, and it was so successful that soon afterwards a
second dance was given in co-operation with Pershing House. This was every
bit as successful as the first, so that Jane Austen's achievements in the way
of dancing parties during the last year have her other years "backed off the
XYe have not been backward in scholarship, either. Our "cum laude" list
has been full after each marking, and we also boast six girls who have gradu-
ated in the last year with "cum laude" diplomas. They are Mary Tozer, Ruth
Tower, Margaret Silk. Helen Scott, Helen Y. Stewart. and Ada Yeale.
All in all, lane Austen has had a most successful year, but we could not
help but be successful with such a group of oflicers as the following: Fall

Ann Smith. Spring term, President, Marjorie Shields: Yice-President, Dor-

REB ECLA YON Tlcli.
There's nothing spectacular about Mar-
shall House. Their successes aren't pro-
claimed quite as loudly as they might be
but new eitheless they re there.
In house athletics Marshall House has
not shown up with the other houses.
but they have shown a Fine brand of sportsmanship from start to finish.
lYithout seeming to make an alibi, we can easily explain, by two reasons.
Marshall's lack of success in house athletics. A very important factor is
there are fewer men to choose from: the second reason is that those ath-
letes they have are so good that they play on the school teams.
ln school athletics, however, Marshall has been well represented on every
team, and especially the track team. In cold figures, Marshall House won 33
of the 112 points made by all the track teams entered in the city meet, and
the championship relay team is composed of Marshall House men entirely,
quite a representation when you think it over.
lYe have said that the teams of Marshall House were not successful, which
is quite true, but Marshall House has been very successful. VVhen it came
to a showdown in the Pentathlon race last year. to see which house, as a
whole and in proportion to its size, was the strongest and best, Marshall
House came out on top. The big point winners were not in Marshall House,
but the grand average put Marshall head and shoulders above all of the
other houses. The prospects for putting the second leg on the Pentathlon
cup are very bright.
VVe have covered the athletic phase of the question, so let us now turn
to the study and social phase. Marshall has always been noted for her excel-
lent scholastic standing, and a resume of her records from the beginning
show her to have kept the highest standards of the boys' houses. During
the last year she has been at the top, or very near the top, all the time, and
any house bargaining for first place in scholarship among the boys' houses
has always had to consider Marshall House.
Although never prominent in social activities, Marshall has never low-
ered her standards of doing things right. She was very fortunate to be able
to team up with Joan of Arc House in giving a dance that is remembered as
one of the few really good dances of the semester past. It was not a money-
making proposition, although there was a small surplus, and the effort was
The opera found Marshall House well represented in music circles with
two of the principals and several members of the chorus chosen from her
Taking it all in all, Marshall House has been well represented in all
school activities. Even though she does seem to be at the bottom at first
sight, it is because of the poor showing of her teams and the overemphasis
of athletics while the bigger things are not emphasized enough.
Mr. Porter is the one mainly responsible for the successes of Marshall
House, and he has been assisted by the following officers:

To prove their thoroughness, they're starting a regular system that x 'ill

enable them to reach their zenith in short order. Acting under the excellent
suggestion of Mr. Munro and Ray Kritz. last semester's president, they have
bought a piano. "Your organization has to have a good morale, if you expect
good results," say the army men. So when James Gibb, Edward Kupka, or
Miss Lowden play the piano, the least it does is to raise our morale.
As a result of this rising spirit, the first thing we did last fall was to
win the football championship. Such enthusiasm, and such teams! The beau-
tiful cup they received was hardly reward enough. Coach james received a
watch and penknife to reward his efficient coaching.
Next came the basketball season with a little tough luck for us. The
teams only managed to get a tie for second. But baseball is here, and Per-
shing spirit is bound to succeed. With captains like Flannigan, Gill, and
Jackson, and a few more games we'll have the cup cinched. Nothing can
lower our spirit!
Our scholarship is climbing. A few individual point getters are boosting
our average 'way up towards the girls' houses. Come in and take a look at
our Honor Roll. Have you anyone who has 27 points, or 25, or even 20, with
four academics? We have!
Speaking about boosters, have you ever seen better ones than Bill Hum-
phrey, James Gibb, and Mac Kreg, our president, secretary, and treasurer.
You bet you haven't! But last semester's officers, Ray Kritz, Ralph Jackson,
and Edward Kupka really started our climbing.
Our higher scholarship is giving us a keener interest in school activities.
VVhat other house was as well represented in the opera as we were? With-
out pausing we can- mention Kennedy, Gannon, Kupka, Ferguson, and Gibb,
besides others in the orchestra.
Jones and Humphrey played on the school basketball team. Malcolm
Henry represents Pershing on the track. In the R. O. T. C. we have a major,
a captain, half-a-dozen lieutenants, and two top sergeants. Going some, eh?
But it is in debating that we shine! Of the eight boys who made the
Senate debating team, four are from Pershing. All are stars, too!
So much interest in debating is being aroused in Pershing that a debating
club has been formed. Its speaker, Koifman. is urging quite a few to join.
and shortly he expects to send a challenge to the Senate, and other houses.
Leaders in another held!
A little while ago, nearly the whole house turned out to see General
Pershing. When we received his letter, such enthusiasm was aroused that
we had our budding artist, Stanley Husband, draw his portrait. Now it's to
be framed and hung over the door, to remind us that we're named after one
of the greatest living Americans. Now who could keep a house down with
the deeds of such a man to guide is?
Roosevelt House, having established a
fine reputation as a new house last spring.
has established a much finer one during
the 1919-1920 year. Although we have
. only twenty-four more boys than last
-lune, we have yet to be surpassed by the
other boys' houses in enrollment. Roosevelt now contains three hundred
and thirty boys.
Last September we were very sorry to learn that Mr. Burgess, our prin-
cipal, was to leave us, but soon found that we were to be honored by having
Mr. Jerome take his place. Under his direction, things ran very smoothly,
and everybody agrees with us, that we were lucky in securing such a com-
petent man, as Mr. Jerome, to fill the vacancy.
Our house has not a very large past to boast of, but it must be mentioned
that last year we captured the house baseball cup. ln the football tourna-
ment, last fall, we came out one game behind Pershing House, who won the
championship. But this bit of ill-luck did not down our spirit. Wie proved
that when the basketball season came around. All three teams
showed up exceedingly well, the season winding up with Roosevelt winning
the tournament with flying colors. She won 1-1 out of 16 games. At the
present time we have three teams representing us in baseball. The senior
team is tied for first place, and they intend to stick there. A new banner now
adorns our house, as a result of our ability in selling football tickets, last fall.
lt is a large blue one, with the words, "Roosevelt 1-louse," on it in red.
Roosevelt's career in social activities may not have been quite as lively
as the athletic, but she can boast, that what was done in this line was good.
Last November, a Lincoln-Roosevelt Thanksgiving Dance was given in honor
of the football team. This shows that, although bitter rivals in athletics.
Lincoln and Roosevelt can "pull together" in social activities. Quite a space
of time elapsed before any further social action took place, until May 26
Roosevelt pulled off a dance for the benefit of French babies. This was a
"howling success," not being surpassed by any previous dance. A two-fold
good was derived from the dance, as Roosevelt not only cleaned up her
French orphan debt, but showed the school that she was hot socially dead.
This would not be complete, if we did not mention the fact, that many of
the outstanding athletes of the school hail from our house. Roosevelt is
represented on the Varsity football team, by Robinson, Marion, and Magee:
on the basketball team by Langley, Marion, and Robinson: on the track team
by Russell and Riceg on the baseball team by Mauer, Rhul, and Langley.
Roosevelt has been very careful in the selection of her officers, which
partly accounts for her good standing. The officers are:

During the winter, Lincoln House gave a dance in the girls' gym, in con-

the first and only dance given in the boys' gym, which was artisticallv decor-
ated in black and white. The feature of the evening was the grade principals'
Lincoln's greatest achievement this year has been in scholarship. The
boys worked so hard at it that they did not seem to have as much time to
capture athletic honors. So, in scholarship we have more than kept our repu-
tation. Lincoln has been at the top of the boys' houses except once, when
Marshall beat us. But that was really a victory, as it made us tackle our
studies with the vigor that always spells success. The result was seen in the
April marking, when Lincoln not only led all the boys' houses, but even sur-
passed four of the girls' houses, a feat heretofore unheard-of at Northwestern.
Lincoln held second place, Betsy Ross House being first.
If Lincoln did not capture any trophies in house athletics, we may console
ourselves by the fact that we furnished many leaders of the school activities.
Last term, Kinsey Tanner was president of Lincoln House and of the gradu-
ating class, besides playing football.
This term Frank Shanahan is president of Lincoln House, and also has
the honor of presiding over the best and largest class in the history of North-
western High School, that of June, 1920. For two years he has held the cap-
taincy of the baseball team. Nor must we overlook the fact that he was
chosen speaker of the Senate Cabinet, and also of the "Viri Club," which gave
the very successful dance, May 7. '
Bill Springsteen was captain of both the football and basketball teams
this year, both of which won state honors. Bill was vice-president of Lincoln
House during the last year. He is one of the fine fellows whom many younger
boys have set as an example to follow.
Then there is "Diz" Vreeland. who has made himself indispensable.
although he has been with us but a year. He was elected captain of next

western, left an organization called the Sen-
ate. This club Hoi' ' " cl a while, but, when
the members gradiiaici, no ,new ones came in
and finally only a vaiined. They did all
they could to raise tnniiusiasni in debating, but
little support or mater' ..- forthcoming
from the students. U
Mr. De Galan. the faculty adviser. seeing
that the old method produced neither hair nor
hide of a debating Colt, conferred with Mr.
Miller, and a membership of SOO, consisting of
all English 4.75 and C82 classes, was the result.
Each class elected a speaker who became a
member of the Executive Council, by whom all
Senate business was handled.
Frank Shanahan was elected president of
the Senate, and Ruth Sutherland, clerk.
Trial debates were held immediately in all
English classes, and each class sent its two
best debaters to the team tryouts which soon
took place. Eleven were honored by being
chosen to represent the school: R. Gannon, E.
liressler. J. Glynn, E. Guest, C. Livingstone,
VV. Gleason, A. Sherman. D. Boillotat, O. Buch-
ner, V. Nafe, and VV. Gray.
As first opponent, the U. of D. High,
which has one of the best teams in the State,
took our boys into court on the question of
compulsory military training and won the 3-0
Northwestern won the last debate of the
season from Saginaw Arthur Hill, 4 to 2. It
was a home to home debate, the affirmative
winning 3 to O, and the negative losing a close
decision, 2 to 1.

The Greek Club
The Greek Club has progressed very rapidly during the past year, under
the guiding hand of Miss Dorothy Roehm, its faculty advisor. This is shown
in the fact that the number of members has increased from sixteen to thirty-
The activities of the club have been many. .
The members of the club were successful in producing a pageant in the
interests of the Better Speech Campaign. Among the foremost events of the
winter season was the production of Euripides' "Alcestis" by the club mem-
bers in the school auditorium on the evening of December 13, 1919. The
leading parts of the play were interpreted by Elizabeth Hayes, Talmon
Davenport, Lloyd Young, Hewitt Mathews, John Rumball. Dorothy Boillotat,
and Edward Sweeney. The music, which was furnished by the music depart-
ment under the direction of Miss Starr, was especially suited to the theme of
the play. NVith the help of Miss Sibley, the physical training instructor, the
chorus was posed. The proceeds were contributed to the school treasury for
use in remodeling the stage.
The purpose of the club has been to read in translation the words of
the Greek authors. The meetings this term have been devoted to programs
which consisted of readings from Theocritus, Plato, Plutarch, Theophrastus,
and Aristophanes, and of a study of the Greek theater.
In March, the club had a party. at which the dignified members
descended from their lofty pedestals and enjoyed themselves.
The officers for the term which ended in January were: Madeline VVright,
president: Lois Miller. vice-president: and Elizabeth Richardson. secretary-
treasurer. The officers for the present term are: Ruth Sinz. president,
Hewitt Mathews, vice-president, and Elizabeth Richardson, secretary-
Girls' Aiqiliated Club
It is with pleasure that the Northwestern Girls' Affiliated Club reviews
the events of the past year. N-V-.
A list of the year's activities would include a week-end party at Sylvan
Lake in Gctoberg a successful Christmas dance, a Valentine's party for the
prospective new members in February: the annual Inter-Club banquet held
at the Y. XV. C. A. '
Forty-tive new members were initiated in March. This brought the
membership up to ninety-seven, which was the largest membership of any
club in the history of the G. A. C. of Detroit. In the same month a Faculty
Tea was given after a teachers' meeting.
At a meeting in April, Mrs. Rauch led a discussion of "Personal Standards
in School Life." This was one of the most interesting meetings of the year.
Different members of the club were given topics, which they fully justified.
ln the same month an Inter-Club reception for mothers was given at the
Y. W. C. A.
The club is at present making plans for the Inter-Club vaudeville, to be
held in May, and for the house party at Bay Court.
All of the faculty advisors have been loyal supporters of the club. The
G. A. C. takes this occasion to publicly thank Mrs. Rauch for her untiring
efforts toward the success of the club.

This year has seen the Sodales' expansion into one of the school's fore-
most clubs. And as the size increased from one Latin QSJ class to include
all Latin students in the upper classes, so its activities and abilities have
increased in like manner.
One of the chief aims of the club was amusement and. were that the aim
of the world, the Sodales would be surely fitted to rule, for the customs
employed to extract humor from a language which seems only a conglom-
eratilon of gerundives and subjunctives would be deemed impossible by the
Through the combined efforts of Miss Green, Miss Brown, and Miss
Cooper. the members of the club managed to absorb quite a little knowledge
of the Roman life and architecture. .Xnother achievement uf the club was
the ability to warble "Onward, Christian Soldiers," in sonorous l.atin syllables.

Consules-Leslie Young, Charles Stevens.

The Boys' Afiiliated Club
In the seventh year of its existence at Northwestern, the Boys' Affiliated
Club has attained unusual success. The purpose of this club is "to create.
maintain, and extend through the school high standards of Christian char-
acter." In carrying out this aim, the club launched a "Come Clean Cam-
paign," which reached a climax on April 19, 1920. Two rallies for the boys
took place, besides a meeting of the athletes. The speakers were Mr. Nelson,
an overseas athleteg Mr. Reiman, formerly a Michigan football player, and
Angus Goetz, captain of the U. of M. football team.
ln a social way, also, the club has come to the front. During October.
the members had a hayride. The latter part of january came the semi-annual
banquet, followed by a theater party. In March another theater party was
the attraction. But, as usual, the big event of the season took place at Lake
Orion. Frank Cowley gave a house party at his cottage, May 22 and 23, at
which there were ten couples. Mr. and Mrs. Van Dyke acted as chaperones.
Another banquet in June finished the season.
The September semester opened with the following officers: Frank
Cowley, president: Leslie Young, vice-president, Frank Henry, secretary:
N. R. C.
A new club has been organized under the name of the Northwestern
Radio Club. It is for the purpose of instructing and experimenting along
the line of radio telegraphy and telephony.'
The club first came into being last fall. Officers were elected, and a
definite program arranged. Those elected were: E. Kressler, president, C.
Cary, secretaryg and Coates, treasurer. Many very interesting experi-
ments were performed in the physics laboratory, with the aid of Miss Cham-
In January of this year it was thought advisable to divide the club into
two sections, to be known as the Senior and junior sections. Anyone who is
interested in wireless is eligible to join the junior club, while the passing of
an entrance examination is a requisite of the Senior section.
The officers of the Senior section for this semester are: VV. Kleinert,
president, F. Murphy, vice-president, F.. Kressler, secretary and treasurer.
The junior section has the following officers: Coates, president, K. Kear-
The Senior Club has obtained the approval of Mr. Miller to install a high
power radio station at the school, with which is will be possible to receive
European signals. The antenna will be placed on the fiag pole, and will have
a span of three hundred feet.
One Friday in late September, eighteen tanned and freckled girls met
in Room 116. They were the .-Xmici, ready for another year of work and
play. In accordance with the constitution, new officers were elected as fol-
lows: Margaret Schaupner, president: VVinifred Sample, vice-president,
Josephine Stauffer, secretary: and Rosalind Zapf, treasurer.
One of the enjoyable features of the year was the banquet given for the
prospective new members. After a sumptuous repast, prepared under the
directions of Miss Doyle and Miss Vyn, several members, edified no doubt
by Mr. Miller's presence, gave interesting toasts. Mr. Miller, himself, edified
no doubt by the sumptuous repast, told an amusing story as only Mr. Miller
can tell one.
Several Roman programs have been given, and they proved very inter-
esting, indeed, since they furnished an opportunity for learning more about
Roman customs, costumes, and peculiarities. Not the least interesting was
a letter of Calpurnia to Caesar, in which his worship's domestic life was
To gratify its social desires, the society assembled at the home of one
of its members once every month. To say that these little parties were en-
joyable would be putting it mildly.
As we stand at the end of another year, it seems but fitting to close with
a grand finale! Consequently, a real Roman feast day has been planned to
take place out-o-f-doors on the last day of school. The costumes, program.
and refreshments fwith the exception of vinumj will be Roman, and as a
final close uf the year and feast, an offering will be brought to the goddess

R. O. T. C.
The R. O. T. C. has made rapid progress this term under the efficient
direction of Capt. McRay, U. S. R. A.
During the early part of the semester, rifies were issued and the men
were instructed in the manual of arms.
Elections were held, and VVilford Yalliere was chosen major, with Cyril
Johnston as adjutant. An officers' club was established, in which all sergeants
and commissioned officers were eligible for membership. This club. with
XYilford Vallier as chairman, is very active, and it is expected that it will take
a leading part in club activities around school.
During the early part of March, cartridge belts and bayonets were issued,
but, as yet, there has been no drilling with them. During this month, elec-
tions were held in Northwestern, Nordstrum, and VVestern, comprising the
third regiment in the city, for the purpose of electing a lieutenant-colonel.
The result of this ballot was the election of Major Valliere to that office, and
Cyril Johnston took his position as major.
A regimental drill was held on April 28 and, as usual, Northwestern came
out on top. Previous to this, the men, by popular vote, decided to drill at
7:00 a. m. on Monday, Wfednesday, and Friday, for the purpose of obtaining
a better alignment for the regimental drill.
The officers of the R. O. T. C. are: Wilford Valliere, lieutenant-colonel,

lhe baseball season is not yet at a close.
but it is very evident that Northwestern will
lead in this branch of sport. as it has in
every other line of athletics.
Football season saw the Colts through un-

cept Eastern. This outtit drew a 6-6 tie.
ln basketball the Colts fought out a hard
schedule with overwhelming success. .-Xt the
end of the season, Northwestern entered the
mid-west tournament at Madison, lYisconsin.
and came back with the consolation trophy.
They also "copped" the State thampionship at

The girls are not sleeping when it comes
to living up to the school's athletic reputation:
they were second in the city title race.
The students have been very energetic in
suporting the various departments of athletics.
.Xll during football season record crowds turn-
ed out at Goldberg liield. At nearly every bas-
ketball game played at the Colt gym, tickets
were at a premium. Track was unusually
popular this year. The gate receipts for sev-
eral meets were very large. lt is the same
story about baseball. ln everv one of the
sports. the crowds that turned out were wild
with enthusiasm. This brilliant support is one
of the bio' secrets ol Northwestern's success.
Northwestern's football outfit of 1919 can well be styled the champions
of Michigan, although by actual recognition they are Michigan's "Cndefeat-
edf, The Colts trounced every opponent except the lndians, who escaped
with a 6-6 tie. This disaster gave Lansing High an alibi for not competing
with our school. By the Capital City's unsportsmanlike stand. Northwestern
was robbed of the laurels.
Coach Rube Bovill issued his call on the opening day of school. Twelve
veterans reported, including Bill Springsteen, Dutch Marion, Art Springsteen,
Pete Sweeney, Ray Kritz, Floyd Day, Millen. Sieb Shields, T'ed Vyise. and
Tom Magee. Kinsey Tanner and Haze Cole came back again after a year's
service in the navy. A great number of recruits flocked to Coach Rube's
fold. Vreeland arrived from Pontiac and took Dutch Marion's position at
half. Dutch was shifted to end. Harry Vreeland proved the sensation of
the season. so much in fact that he was elected captain of next year's team.
Another find was Smokieweicz, the lanky fellow who came here from Central.
He filled the gap that Cy Perkins left at tackle very nicely. But then North-
western did have some hard luck. Shields and Wise, two main cogs. were
declared ineligible. This seemed a great misfortune. Shanahan and
Humphrey were the two men picked to fill Shields' vacancy. Shanahan was
injured in the Westerii game, so the responsibility fell on Bill Humphrey
alone. He showed himself a very capable man for the job, both in punting
and all around football, making a birth on the all-city. Seager held down
Ted VVise's-tackle until late in the season, when VVise became eligible. Thus
the weaknesses of the team were remedied.
All through the season Bovill possessed a crack backiield. NVith Sweeney
at quarter. Harry Vreeland, Tanner and Floyd Day at half, and Bill Hum-
phrey at fullback, the school couldn't desire a better combination. NVith
three star half-backs, Rube had one extra dependable man in case of injury.
The line kept a ine pace with the backlield. From Dutch Marion to Art
Springsteen. the line was a gang of lighters. "Smokie," the new man. made
everybody sit up and take notice. If Bruno didn't block a punt or pull off
something else sensational, the crowd thought he was on a slump. Bill
Springsteen was a regular "Gibraltar," and Art Springsteen was like his big
brother. When Tommie Magee got his Trish blood up, he sure could razz
them, and the good part of it was his Trish blood was up every second of the
game. Haze Cole was the handy man. Nlfhenever a play was called through
guard. Cole was sure to rip the enemy's forward defense. Coach Bovill car-
ried a large number of substitutes, including Kritz, Millen, .XVitherspoon.
Blackmere, Robinson, Stephens, Olney. and Huff. All these fellows were of
good caliber, but did not get a chance to show themselves. Much is expected
of Stephens, Robinson, and VVitherspoon next year.
The 1919 bunch, taken as a whole, were in many respects a reminder of
the 1917 crew that humbled the invincible Central of that day. They were
all that rough, scrappy kind. who believed in playing the game for all there
was in it. Never was there any more of a feeling of fellowship and co-opera-
tion than in this gang of fellows. They were a credit to Northwestern.

Teams may come and teams may go, but the lighting spirit of North-
western's teams goes on forever. at least this year's basketball team has been
no exception, as anyone who has been fortunate enough to witness the con-
tests well knows. The Colts lost four games, but what of that? lt doesn't
do any team too much good tu win all their games. However, their -119
points, compared with their opponents' 257, speaks eloqueriily of the quality
of the team, for you will observe they have not been playing second rate
Here is a review of the schedule of games with their scores: North-

Northwestern 12, Adrian 91 Northwestern 13, Lansing 63 Northwestern 17.
Northern 13. These scores tell the story of the basketball season, and it is a
story of much light, grit, and teamwork.
The Red and Gray season started with live veterans in the fold: Bill
Springsteen, Dutch Marion, Pete Sweeney, Arthur Carty, and Rover Robin-
son: and some excellent recruits were picked up in Harry Yreelantl, the
Pontiac athlete, who developed into a star center, and Bruno Sinokieweicz.
formerly of Central, who made a very worthy successor to Kinsey Tanner.
Humphrey, who substituted for Marion or Carty, was the only member taken
olt last year's reserve team.
At the tirst of the season the team was on a slmnp. They were humili-
ated by Cass and Toledo Scott. Everybody was down-hearted and discour-
aged, except the team. To make matters worse, Rover Robinson, who was
running neck and neck with Harry Vreeland for the pivot birth, was stricken
with scarlet fever. These setbacks, instead of taking away the team's light.
made everyone see red. Wlieii the bunch stacked up against Cass for the
second time, they completely swept Tech. off their feet.
The third catastrophe of the season was Dutch lXlarion's injury. To win
the Consolation trophy at Madison, and the State title at Ann Arbor, without
Dutch seemed absurd. but it was possible. VVhy? Because the team was not
discouraged, because they fought with a grim determination every second of
play. They all realized that one man did not make a team, and their team-
work won the honors.
The second team played exceptionally well throughout the season, hav-
ing lost but one game, and it has developed the kind of material we need in
next year's team to make up for the loss of Bill Springsteen, Marion, Carty.
Smokieweicz, and Humphrey.

The last indoor track season has by far been the best that Northwestern
has ever undergone. Not one defeat is charged against the Red and Gray
traclgvters. and the city championship rests safely in their possession.
After only a few weeks' practice. the Colts opened the season with an
overwhelming victory over Northern. Cass came next and succumbed to a
7-1-20 count. Ann Arbor proved easier picking than expected for the Calts,
going down to a 74-21 count. Then came the hardest meet of the season,
the one with Eastern. The Colts certainly showed Eastern a team, for
Eastern was handed their nrst beating of the season, with a score of 56-39.
ln the last dual meet of the season, the team gained the biggest victory of
the year, snowing Northeastern under, 71-14.
Then came the annual city meet, held at the Armory. to decide the city
championship. In what was expected to be one of the closest meets ever held
here. Northwestern surprised all by scoring hfty-live points to her nearest
opponent's 28, and running away with the city title.
Carl Blauman and Floyd Day have been the outstanding stars of the
team. Blauman has never met with a defeat in the 220 and 50-yard dashes
this season, and. by his line running, has helped win all uf the relays.
Day holds the honor of having scored more points than any other athlete in
the city meet.
Captain "Mac" Seager proved to be the best shot-putter that North-
western has ever turned out.
George Snider has been a very consistent point winner, being beaten
but once in the hiffh um J, and he has also featured in the hurdles and the
George Russell and Brenton outclassed all opponents this season in the
half and mile runs, respectively, and Barnett and Eason, both in the quarter
and relay, showed up well. Others deserving honorable mention are Bill
Springsteen and Johnston, in the shot-putg NYarner, in the pole vault: Davis.
in the-220 and relayg and Sweeney and Henry in the mile.
The relay has also been one of the teamys strong points all season, since
they won the city title in this event. The members of the team are: Day.
Barnett, Davis, Eason, and Blauman.
XVord must be said of the splendid work and interest the coach took in
the team this year. Mr. James receives the honor of coaching Northwestern's
first champion track team.
Many of this year's team will be back again next season, and, with Coach
James again in charge, the team should sweep everything aside. The "N"
men are: Seager tcaptainj, Blauman, Day, Snider, Russell, Brenton, Barnett,
Sweeney, Springsteen, Davis, Eason, and Wariier.
A wealth of material, including some 25 candidates, reported on Ferry
Field in answer to Coach Bovill's initial call for recruits. Among these were
eight letter men from last year's squad, and several recruits, who, however,
play ball in big league style, so that many of the letter-honored veterans have
been working overtime to keep their positions.
Southeastern High has already fallen by the wayside, the Colts pacing
past them for a 7-2 victory. The team looked especially well on the held this
day, although clouting orbs of the warriors seemed on a strike.
Following closely on the heels of this came Eastern 14, Northwestern 10.
which the team claims was the old-time jinx, and it sure looks as though
there must be some truth in it: alibe or no. This disaster practically settled
in the coach's mind the personnel of the squad. The next afternoon another
scalp was added to the yet unburdened belt of the Colt warriors. lt came trom
the direction of ighland Park: and. although the north-enders were touted as
worthy opponents. well. personally we lost count of the score at 16. but have
the confidential word of a player that the final count was 28 to the seven
times the Highland Park"ed" on the Colts' counting rubber. -Xs weggo to
press, we weep in shame. Northern at last has taken a game from the Loltsf
and what a game! The players blush with chagrin when they speak about it.
Anyway, the Colts galloped away with the small end of a 14-5 score.
-lust a few words regarding the personnel of the squad. Yes, Shannie is
captain and cavorting around his Base, No. Three. "Cap's" work with the hick-
ory bluclgeon also is worthy of mention. If we ever did such rash things, We
would surely sign him up for the Olympic games, or major leagues, or some-
thing. On the mound we have some heavers of the first line. Ebert and
Thorne. both capable of pitching air-tight ball, ably assisted by Shanahan
comprise this most important department of any team. Ruhl holds up the
pitchers in fine style, while Carty also takes his turn behind the bat, when he
is not making putouts by the gallon on the initial sack. Hendrian and Hum-
phrey share the honors of the keystone sack at the present time. "Hump" is
a player of the Wagner type, apparently asleep but always on the job, while
"young Dutch" plays a more llashy game. Glynn, a new fellow at school,
looks good in the shortstop's shoes, is a bear in the held, and comes across
with a resounding shingle in regular fashion.
ln the outheld there is a quintet of men, among the best of whom, be-
cause of their ability at leaning on the sphere, appear to be Langley, Jones,
and Rollg. Carpenter and Shields, however, take regular turns in the dis-
tant garden, and Northwestern side line decorators need have no fear from
this end of the held.
This bunch of baseballers will surely bring success to Northwestern, as
L-very other athletic team has this year.

Track Championship ofrMichigan
Northwestern, by scoring twenty-nine points at the hnal track meet, at
M. A. C., May 29, gained the first state track title for the school, making
the third state championship in the school year.
In the hrst meet of the outdoor season at Kalamazoo, the Colt tracksters,
with several stars out, were able to land fourth place with 19 points. In the
inter-state meet at Ann Arbor, May 22, the team landed seventh place. Then
came the last state meet of the season at Lansing, to decide the state cham-
pionship. By the results of the lirst meets, Kalamazoo and Detroit Eastern
looked like the favorites, but by placing in the lirst events, Northwestern
loomed up as the winner.
Carl Blauman was the individual star of this meet, winning the title of
the fastest interscholastic runner in the state, by winning the 100 and ZZO-
yard dashes respectively. Mac Seager placed second in the shot-put and
fifth in the discus, gaining five points for the team. Snider showed all around
track ability by placing lifth in three events. ln the last event of the meet,
the one-half mile relay, Northwestern took the state title and broke the M.
A. C. relay record. Davis, Eason, Barnett, and Blauman formed the team.
Five cups 'were awarded in this meet to Northwestern.
Those receiving the Northwestern stripe for placing in the state meets
are: Blauman, Seager, Snider. XYarner, Eason, Springsteen, Brenton, Bar-
nett. Davis, and Thielman.
This year the house football teams were divided into two classes. The
first class consisted of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades, and the second
class was made up of the eighth and ninth grades. This gave the younger
fellows a chance to play.
Pershing House won the championship by winning eleven games and
losing only one. Roosevelt followed close on Pershing's heels, with Lincoln
and Marshall Houses trailing on behind. These last two had a poor start.
and near the end of the season were showing much fight, but all in vain, for
the season ended with both teams still behind.
ln the basketball tournament the tables were turned. Roosevelt took
the lead from the beginning and withstood the heavy onslaught of the oppos-
ing teams till the curtain dropped for the finish of the basketball season.
Pershing had to be satisfied with second place. Lincoln and Marshall took
the same positions they held in the football standings.
The baseball championship went to Roosevelt, with Pershing a close
second. followed by Lincoln and Marshall.
The mechanism of the girls' basketball team was working smoothly last
November. Several defeats of a powerful Alumnae team made it seem hardly
possible that, when the season's first game was finished, they would be vic-
tims of the aggressive Central team, rather than its conqueror. The first quar-
ter's figures showed the team's confidence not altogether unfounded. Then
the Central score soared rapidly, and as swiftly Northwestern's opportunity
to add another to its collection of city championships fell, and the whistle
blowing on a 28-22 score sealed its doom.
Wlestern, next on the schedule, was left dazed by the speed of its oppo-
nents and mourning a 74-9 score. Eastern, however, was unwilling to relin-
quish the laurels of the game without a dispute, and only hard work and
clever basketball limited their points to 16, while we acquired 21. South-
eastern was crushed by a 38-5 score.
The real clash of the year occurred when the North VVoodward school
sent a team here to contest the honor of second place in the city champion-
ship. Then Northwestern met a squad far surpassing Central in team work
and composed of all-star players. These held the Red and Gray to a one
point majority, and a score of 22-21.
The characteristics of the team which found only one other in the city its
master were speed, endurance, and teamwork. As forwards a better com-
bination eould hardly be found than that of Florence Eby and Eleanor Oll,
the one fast in floor-work and a certain distance shot, the other possessing
a practiced eye which seldom failed to find the basket. The guards, Edith
Caswell and joe Staufifer, paired off equally well, covering their forwards in
a manner which largely explains the low scores piled up against Northwest-
ern. The center fioor was taken care of by Dorothy Elliott and Ann Smith
fcapty whose co-operation and accurate passing gave the team a good foun-
dation upon which to build its success.
GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM

Fate has been kind to Northwestern swimmers attempting to climb the
Iadder of acquatic fame. The year has brought them some renown and ability
which will make them feared in swimniiiig circles. Florence Eby, diving at
Cleveland, defeated some of the country's best performers. Dorothy Elliott
placed second to Margaret Woodbriclge in a backstroke race: and, in the
same city championship meet, Ann Smith was runner-up for the diving
honors. These accomplishments forecast success which experience must bring.
Joan of Arc, after a series of close, hard-fought games, succeeded in win-
ning the championship cup from the lane Austen girls.
A great deal of pep and friendly rivalry were worked into the games this
year, while the enthusiasm and support of the girl student 'body was sur-
The teams were very evenly matched this season, with the exception of
the Browning machine, which placed last in the race for the cup.
After about a month of preparatory practice the tournament began.
From the first the Black and Red girls showed their prowess. being endowed
with star centers and tricky forwards. However. the Betsy Ross and .lane
Austen teams gave the present champs a run for their money and were de-
feated only by very close scores. Although the Mt. Yernon girls played hard,
they seemed to lack the ginger which made them a much feared team last

Since the time when Northwestern first
opened, one of its most active departments has
been that of music. .lt has been one of the larg-
est contributors to the rapid rise of North-
western. and it will continue so as long as Miss
Clara Starr is at its head.
1Yhen we consider that this department is
but six years old, it is hard to realize that live
complete light operas have been presented by
it. Yet it is true, for since 1916 it has
been the custom to present annually some light
opera of popular renown. Including the one
of this year the dates. names, and composers
of these operas are: 1916, "The Pirates of
Penzance," Gilbert Sullivan: 1917. "The Mikasa
do," Gilbert Sullivan: 1918, "The Chimes of
Normandy," Planquetteg 1919, "Robin Hood,"
De 1ioven3 1920, "The Serenade," Yictor Her-
bert. The school has come to look forward to
the annual opera, and the year would seem
empty without it,
Not content with the operas, this department
has given two concerts each year for live years,
one in the fall and one in the spring. These
have been free and for the purpose of demon-
strating the scope of the department to those
interested. Besides these there are the plays,
vaudevilles, and entertainments, all of which
are incomplete without the school orchestra.
The music department is likewise in evidence
in athletics, for the school band is present at
the big football games. In fact, everywhere
one turns the music department is represented.
May it continue to shed its radiance over all
Northwestern functions, for with it they are
The Past Year
This year has been an unusually successful one for the music department
of Northwestern. A number of noteworthy changes have been made. Mrs.
Schill left in -lune, lfllfl, tu assume the duties uf her heme in Grand Rapids.
while Miss lYolfe left in September to continue her education at North-
western University. To till these vacancies, Miss Alice M. Lowden and Miss
Mary A. Sparling, both of the faculty of the Ypsilanti State Normal College,
were secured. Miss Lowden has charge of the courses in Piano, Harmony,
and History of Music. Miss Sparling takes Mrs. Schill's place as director of
the Girls' Glee Club, and teacher of music in the junior High Scllooll she
also teaches Voice Culture in the High School.
Miss Evelyn Krejci, a graduate of Northwestern, has been in the depart-
ment this year as accompanist. Since her graduation, Miss lirejci has done
much advance work in the Piano and Theory departments of the Detroit Col-
lege of Music.
The big project this year has been the enlargement and refitting of the
stage in the Auditorium. To this end, a series of programs have been given
by the Music and Dramatic departments, splendidly assisted by the Art, and
Domestic Art departments. Early in December, "The Teeth of the Gift
Horse," a clever one-act comedy, and "Cox and Box," one of the best of the
Sullivan extravaganzas, were presented to capacity houses.
January was a busy month, for then came the 12A plays, "A Christmas
tfhime," and "Feed the Brutefl at which program the Boys' and Girls' Glee
Clubs, the Boys' Quartet, and the Orchestra assisted. The SA class gave, for
their promotion program, an attractive operetta, "The Goblins Fair," under
Miss Sparling's direction. The annual midwinter concert, at which the com-
bined chorus classes presented Percy Fletcher's cantata, "The Deacon's Mas-
terpiece," concluded the first semester's work. There were many attractive
features in this concert, including a string quartet, a piano duet, and well-
prepared Glee Club numbers. In February, came the Second Annual All-
School Vaudeville, which, from the standpoint of popularity, was one of the
most successful programs of the year. Music, Dancing, and Dramatics were
combined in a well-rendered program of nine acts.
ln April the fifth annual opera, Victor Herbert's "Serenadef' was given.
june was another very busy month. for then came the 12A plays, "The
Violin Maker of Cremonaf' and "A Good Dinner." The various musical or-
ganizations assisted as usual. Cowen's beautiful cantata, "The Rose Maiden,"
was the feature of the spring concert given during the last week of school.
Perhaps the most pretentious operetta ever attempted by Northwestern
Juniors is Henry Hadley's "The Fire-Prince," given by the june SA class.
One hundred fifty boys and girls were included in the cast, and the charming
choruses and dances, together with the artistic costumes, combined to make
a most delightful program.
Xl S' '
Victor Herbert's tuneful light opera, "The Serenade." was one uf the
most satisfying productions ever given at Northwestern. The opera is splen-
didly adapted to high school purposes, for the music is charming, and the
humor of the libretto is contagious and above reproach. The choruses were
never so well balanced, and the principals proved themselves equal to the
heavy demands made upon them by the beautiful solos, duets, and quartettes.

ff he Coltw
The Colt, having long since passed the experimental stage, is now de-
veloped into a large and thriving institution that can justly claim a good
share in the making of Northwestern. Qrganized originally to be a "medium
through which the ideas of both student and faculty might be disseminated,"
it has kept its aim, namely. "to help Northwestern by just praise and criticism
and to bring it about eventually that there might be no need of criticism."
XVhen The Colt was first organized, it was an experiment: it was the first
school newspaper issued in this section of the country. The prevailing style
at the time was the monthly magazine. and Northwestern's conservatives
were afraid to try anything else. Consequently, there was much adverse
criticism. The Colt was issued in the face of the prevailing sentiment, and
it conquered the feeling against it in the school until it is now accepted by
both student and faculty as the most efficient publication for a school the size
and calibre of Northwestern.
This change of feeling was not effected without a struggle. On the
contrary, the whole transformation consumed the space of about two years,
and these two years were a source of many trials and troubles to the editors
and managers at that time. They had incurred debts which they found diffi-
cult to clear up, but they struggled on until, in 1918, The Colt found itself free
of debt and. with a glad shake, lengthened out into its stride.
The plan of organization of The Colt has remained fundamentally the
same, although it has always been the policy to test fairly any suggestions
of changes that appear feasible.
Tl1e taking over of the publication of The Norwester by Tl1e Colt stair
has lllllilf' necessary a larger start and a greater degree of eiiiciency than was
ever required of those previous to the ones of the last two years. The co-
operation of those concerned has been greatly aiipreciatecl since, without it,
the good work never would have l7CCl'l accoinplisliecl.
Tl1e editor takes this opportuiiity to tl1ai1k Miss Merriam, Miss Hill,
Miss Roehm, Miss XYhitney, a11d Mr. O'B1'ien for their conscientious flllfl
untiring' efforts for the success of this publication, and o11ly hopes that staffs
to come may be as fortunate, in obtaining faculty assistance, as this one.
Student members who deserve special mention are: Charles Stevens.
who managed tl1e advertising for both The Colt Hlltl Norwesterg Ruth Suth-
erland. who managed the circulation for both publications: Betty Browiie, for
her work as art editor: Charles Livingstone, who took over a good share of
The Colt work while the editor was engaged with the Norwesterg and all
members of tl1e stait who reported faithfully to help prepare copy and proof
for the publication.

I love to sit hy the side of a stream
And let the world go hyg
XYhere there's nothing to do hut fish and dream

And I wonder, just where do they go?

And mysteries down here lsielow.
A woodpecker knocks on his door in a tree,
NYhile an oriole croons in his sleepg
A lone little cricket whos lost his way
Lets forth an inquiring "sceep!"
The tree toads are practicing on their x'i'lins.
In fact, they are tuning the strings.
The bull-frogs are choruses now, one and all.
From half-tadpole right up through the
The mayliies suspended above the damp grass
Are aglou' with a transparent gold:
The ripples that form on the little streams

So peaceful and soothing are all of these

It's a wonder to me that the people don't leave
Their cities, and come here to dream.
The Senior dance was the talk of the school. Here and there, in corners
and alcoves, the girls gathered in exclusive groups to marvel at and discuss
their dresses for this great fete. Occasionally, some girl would hold up a bit
of tulle or beaded lace that had been surreptitiously taken from mother's or
the dressmaker's sewing machine, as conclusive evidence that her dress would
in all probability be judged the prettiest, at least by herself.
Marlyn was giving a demonstration tin the front hallj of just how she
would walk when she had her party dress on tfor you know a walk is always
changed when you have on your dress-the better the dress, the nearer the
"grand-dame-strut" you may come, that is, if you have the time to practice
it an hour before your mirror every day.j lXIarlyn's execution of this stride
was now perfect or she wouldn't have been promenading in so conspicuous
a place. But alas! The fifth hour gong ended her vainglory, but it didn't
deprive her of the pleasure of speculating upon who would be there-or who
wouldnt She was confident that Arbella Peel was not going to the dance,
because she didn't have a brother to take her fas Marlyn didj, and she wasn't
so very popular with the boys. Neither was Marlyn, for she thought that
they weren't quite good enough for her company.
"Going to the dance, Arhella?" she suavely inquired.
Of course, Arbella would say "no," But of all things! -Xrbella said "Yes"
"Huh! VVhat with?"
"Your brother!" she returned.
Visions of sugar plums, pickles, and stars rushed through Marlyn's head,
each clamoring for supremacy. The stars won, and Marlyn felt dizzy.
"My brother?" she murmured.
If mental telegraphy were in vogue at that time. and Jimmie were in a
receptive mood, scenes of a battle to come might have flashed across his serene
Nevertheless, it came without warning at dinner. Jimmie nervously
wished that "SisU wouldn't chatter so much about his taking her to the
"I promised you I'd take you, didn't I? Can't you let it rest?" he wailed.
"Yes, but Jim, dear, am I the only one you promised."
Jimmie looked queer. "Er-awk-excuse me-I got something in my
throat." XYith that he left the table. Unfortunately, Marlyn swallowed a
drink of water in a very extraordinary way, and had to be excused. In the
kitchen she found Jimmie putting more into his throat instead of endeavor-
ing to remedy his ailment.
"Jim! You're going to take Arbella Peel to the dance," she accused.
"XYell, what of it?" he asked between mouthfuls.
"You asked me first. Besides, I'm your sisterf,
"I can't help your being my sister. Arbella's my girl, too. If you want
to, you can come along. But I'm taking Arbella, not you. I asked you before

"How do you know it's yours?"
" 'Cause itys got the most whipped cream. See Y"
She saw, and calmly walked out with it.
"Darn!" expostulated Jimmie, and was silent the rest of the evening.
Marlyn had an inspiration next morning, when Hazel Burton asked her
if her brother was going to take her to the dance.
"Him! Well, I guess not! Do you think I'd go with an infant? Huh!"
"Why," said the astonished Hazel, "I-I thought he was older than you."
"Oh-you did, did you? XYell, it's true he looks older, but-looks are
Hazel was disappointed. She cherished a secret admiration for Jimmie.
'loo bad to "know", that Jimmie was younger than she.
"He's going to take .Xrbella Peel," ventured Marlyn.
By record about every girl in the senior class knew that Arbella was
going with Jimmie-the "Infant," and .-Xrbella was subtly informed that she
was "robbing the cradle" for the dance. If this was the case, she decided that
she wasn't going with an infant-which was just what Marlyn wanted her
VVhen Jimmie came to walk home with her, she said, "Never mind, In-
fant, unless you want me to help you across the tracks. You can't trust a
child of sixteen alone, you know."
"Sixteen? Child? Street car tracks? Heavens! Have you gone crazy?
VVell, you can't expect me to take you to the dance, can you?" All his dignity
and pride were tramped upon, before that bunch of school girls.
"No. I wouldn't go with an infant!"
"You don't need to. You will, won't you, Hazel?" His tone was pat-
How hard it was for Hazel to refuse.
"Heel You make me-oh, what's the use." Sulkily he stalked down
the walk with a crowd of giggling, jeering girls behind.
If they thought he wouldnlt come to the dance, they were going to be
mistaken. He knew that every girl would refuse him, and so he determined
not to ask another girl from that school.
The night of the dance arrived. Feverish excitiment prevailed every-
where. Marlyn had an escort. He wasn't so "bad, after all"--just a bit
snobbish. Funny how like attracts like.
Arbellals cousin came in from college just in the "nick of time" to take
her. No one need know that he was her cousin. He was a fine dancer, too.
Ah, Jimmie. Well, Jimmie seemed happy. Somehow that was not just
the proper attitude for a boy without a lady friend to take along.
This puzzled Marlyn. "He has something up his sleeve, I just know
itf' she soliloquized.
How ever closely she watched him, there was no clue to his actions.
He even left about a half hour earlier than she, all shined up and smiling.
"See you at the dance, Sis, ta-ta."
Disgusted. she turned from the window. All contempt vanished when
she saw herself reflected in the mirror. She seemed a veritable cloud of soft
blue chiffon. and dainty silver lace. A tiny pink rosebud was buried in her
dark curls. It seemed impossible that such a picture could be such a regular
little "scrapper." '
Mr. Archibald Style called for her at eight. '
The gymnasium was a mecca of Huttering and important students. But
Jimmie had not yet come. On all sides Marlyn met inquiries concerning her
brother's occupation and amusement for the evening. Even the boys "caught
on," and "Infantl' became the password.
XVhen Jimmie entered everyone called, "Hello, Infant, old top !" or "Did
you bring a nursemaid?', J
"Never mind," he said, in a stage whisper. "Keep still. She's out in the
hall vet. Don't let me hear any more of this 'infant' business, either. For
heveii's sake, cut it out! Do yo-oh! Hello, Betty! Ready now? Boys" Che
entirely ignored the girls eagerly crowding aroundj, "this is my friend, Miss
But Betty was playing a role. She wasn't his real girl, only a borrowed
one that belonged to his chum's retinue of feminine admirers. Nevertheless.
she fitted very well into the surroundings, far too well, for to add insult to
injury, her dress was identically the same as Marlyn's!
Marlyn could only open her eyes and mouth to their full extent and gasp
for breath. Her downfall was certain, and, as she caught Jimmie's words, it
seemed that it had come.
"And, as to my being an infant, I'm nineteen and can prove it. Now, who
started all of this?"
Profound silence reigned Cas the real authors sayj for a minute, but the
fall of Marlyn's vanity case broke it, as well as drawing 'limmie's attention
to her. Light dawned.
"VVas it you?U he angrily asked.
A slight nod was the answer.
His voice amid the shrieks of laughter was audible only to Marlyn.
"Oh, you did? VVell,', he said in low tones. "I'll attend to you when we
And he did.
The Great Hour
A lady was standing alone in the sun,
On each side of her head was a great monstrous bun:
And the Hash of her eyes was one not to be beat.
XYhen she stepped on the car and could not find a seat.
She first turned her bright orbs, with the look of a ramp,
Cn a soldier whose face said, "Just out of a camp."
And her eyes, like a magnet, his brown ones did meetg
Still he did not get up and offer his seat.
Then the lady, amazed at her great lack of pow'r,
Changed her facial express to fit with the hour,
And her look plainly said, "Sir, I'm some Amazon.
You had better be careful! The battle is on Y"
XYhen the people around saw his great look of woe,
They immediately knew she had stepped on his toe.
When the soldier arose, he said, "Miss, I give up!"
But she answered, "You villain! I've gone past my stopf
The shades of night fell o11 his brown
And in their wake there came
Deep black and richest indigo
And stars of brilliant flame.
And. singing, such as could not be,
Save from immortal maids.
Ah, yes. this all is true, my friends.
Those shades were window-shades!
The columbines an' honeysuckle am a bloomin' now,
An' houncin' Betts is lmuddin' on the furthest hillock's brow,
An' don't you hear the crickets singin' now the sun is low?
VVhy, there goes ,lane Marier an' her bran' new stuck-up beau!
She catched him at the meetin' house las' Sunday af'ernoon,
An' now they sit up every night an' watch the gran' new moon!
Do we ever stop to think, i11 this busy world of ours, that the children of
nature are also as busy i11 their way as we are i11 ours? The average man
of today has little time for thc study of nature and considers it as something
of a luxury whicl1 does not belong to his "worldly life," as he is pi-one to
term it. Hut is it really a worldly life? ls not he wl1o studies nature. loves
it, and profits by it, in truth a 1112111 of the world?
Perhaps the oldest children of nature are the trees. To the naturalist
the lives Of1llCIl1tl'l6 lives the me11 ought to live are represented i11 the trees.
They are beautiful and suggest harmony a11d peace as tl1ey 11plift their
branches to tl1e heavens. They have their work, as all men have their work,
and they perform their missions, murmuring to each other in gentle tones.
They have their lives and live them as do we, but they are a different race.
They have their homes i11 the soil a11d rise up from the soil into tl1e world.
where they do their work-the work of doing for others.
Their branches provide a resting place for another race-the feathered
race-and their leaves furnish a shelter from the winds and rai11. They cast
out wide shadows to envelop the weary travelers, and invite them to rest.
They bare their strong shoulders to the wind, and as silent sentinels protect
tl1e world from its great force. Many of the leaved race give food to 111a11
and others forfeit their lives in behalf of the universe.
And do they remain thankless? Little do men ever think of the sacri-
PICCS. little do they think of the source of their riches.
If men would live their lives and would profit by this great silent race,
they would be nearer to their goal on the Highway of Success.
Why were these wonderful creatures placed upon this earth by the King
of all Nature, if not to set an example to mankind? Though we may regard
trees as very different from ourselves, are they not very much like us, indeed
nearer to a perfect life than are we? They are placed in Olll' midst as one of
the great wonders, created by the Makerg and to study them, as we would
a different race, will certainly lead us to a more perfect a11d Godly life, for the
trees represent all that is beautiful and good and are our fellow workers.
As a student in a large school I come in co11tact with many people, a11d
in my leisure make a business of studying the 111211157 different characteristics
which I meet. Some I fi11d very congenial, a11d others not quite as agreeable.
There are SONIC particularly interesting with whom I 111eet every day and
will now endeavor to present to you in their true colors. The first to come
under our spotlight is little Maggie Smith, a bright enough child for her
years. from one of the junior grades. The next is Annie Warreii, a tall and
dignified senior with eyes serene and untroubled brow, 11ever i11 a hurry, and
perfect in demeanor. Such a one is sweet Annie. Another is of the boys'
school, a goodly youth with a CTOXV11 of red hair a11d a veil of freckles, by
name. Michael, after that sprightly saint of yore. This next one is also of
the 11ew school. He slouches in and out of classes with apparently no ambi-
tio11 in life or out of it, but more of him a11on. Last, but far from least, there
comes one from that body known as tl1e faculty. As a11 explanation to those
who may be ignorant of the subject, suffice it to say that this body is em-
ployed for the purpose of instilling the knowledge of many subjects i11to tl1e
brains of the youthful public. So I'll11Cll for our characters.
VVe will now return to our youthful friend, Maggie Smith lYe fi11d her
perhaps i11 Lati11 class. perhaps in arithmetic. Our young Maggie is equally
clever and precocious in both. Perhaps Maggie has just made a particularly
astonishing recitation, for which reason she is most at peace with the world,
but when the gong rings she is out of her seat like "a dart from the tartar's
bow" and runs down the hall at a speed which would do a speed king's heart
good to see, and dashes madly around the corner, hair streaming, and leaving
an astonishing number of small articles in her wake, such as pencils and
erasers for the unwary traveller to stumble over. At this point Maggie runs
into and almost upsets a very quiet and staid person, walking at a moderate
rate of speed, knocking her victim's books and hairpins to fifteen entirely
different points of the compass. She does not stop to apologize nor looks
either to the right nor to the left, but continues on her way of destruction.
At the point where we left Maggie we will join our old friend, Annie
'Warren She is meandering down the hall, holding a long line of impatient
ones back and also suffering no one to pass her. She at last makes her way
to her grade room and seating herself near a convenient and talkative friend.
she produces a rather soiled specimen of a powder puff the size of a small
saucer. Having adjusted a small mirror, she first drops this puff on the
iioor, and then proceeds to place powder upon her countenance, raising a
dust in the process which chokes several near neighbors, causing them to
sneeze violently. This done, she offers the puff to her talkative friend, who
also goes through the same process, and then the two settle themselves for a
long talk in a stage whisper which may be heard all over the room, and suc-
ceed in effectually putting an end to any studying which one might wish to
do. NYe will leave them here talking about mere nothings where, for the
sake of the school, we hope their grade principal finds them, and, for the sake
of Annie and her friend, we hope she does not.
We will now turn to the freckled Michael, and we find him contentedly
gazing out of the window and chewing a large wad of gum in such a manner
as to remind one of a contented old cow chewing her cud. Michael, however,
is suddenly called upon by the teacher, and, depositing his wad under the desk,
he rises, and in a sing-song voice, delivers himself accordingly. This done, he
places his hand under the desk to recover the luscious wad, but, to his intense
surprise, encounters several equally small C?iJ wads. Upon investigating, he
discovers that he is unable to tell his own wad from so many, and so, sud-
denly remembering an article upon germs which he once read, he decides to
leave it and get along without. Therefore, he turns his attention to other
matters and succeeds in teasing the little girl across the aisle to his complete
satisfaction, and is ready when the gong rings to dash down the hall, seizing
a drink on the way and covering the whole apparatus with his mouth in the
process, and then goes contentedly to another class.
After Michael has left us we join our other friend Percy. He slouches
into the class room, taking his time in doing everything, and when called
upon fails to recite, causing much irritation thereby to his teacher, who
informs him in a loud and disagreeable voice that this is the third time this
week he has received a four, and what does he expect, etc Percy grins sheep-
ishly and says nothing, but rants inwardly, and so by the time the gong rings
for a rally is ready for anything. During the rally he joins in the yells so
heartily as to become obnoxious and applauds everything in that way which
the principal of the school so aptly described as "smacking too much of the
lower end of the Bowery." As we do not find Percy exceedingly pleasant,
we will go on to the faculty, which we will find represented by one teacher.
She is laughing and joking with some pupils and is continually bothered
until record is over, when she departs to instruct a class of exceedingly stupid
youths in the rudiments of reading and writing. By the end of the day she
is tired out after several hours spent in trying to help some of the slower
students, goes wearily homeward, where she is obliged to look over a hundred
or so examination papers until she falls asleep in her chair. S11 we leave her
and may she rest in peace.
T have given the best side of the teacher perhaps. XYe all have our faults
so has she, but she has learned to control them niore, and so there is not So
much to find fault with. However, l beg of you do not blame me if I have
given a harsh or untruthful picture uf any uf those characters whom we have
studied. And for this effort to, in some XVZIY, resemble a spectator, I humbly
tender my sincere apologies. '
Rebecca von Tick.
There is a bird quite near our house
That never seems to sleepg
XVheney er I come on the scene,
He always says, "Cheap, cheap!"
XYhen other people pass him by
You never hear him peepg
But soon as I come near his tree
He always said, "Cheap, cheap!"
I stood beneath that tree one day,
My thoughts were very deepg
But soon thev all went up' in smokes
I heard the words, "Cheap, cheap!"
It was growing late in the afternoon, and a young man with his paints
and easel leaned wearily against a tree. He had been at the cove very early
that morning to paint the sunrise, but it was so wonderful it hurt, and his
paints were forgotten. But he would stay and paint the sunset.
Climbing over the rocks and tramping through the woods had made him
very tired, yet his fancy kept running back to the morning. Sitting there on
a boulder he had felt the damp wind blow his hair and heard the boom and
pounding of the vast ocean, but these were but the background of his picture.
Slowly, the gray had turned to dull pink. This was swept away by aurora.
and then came the brilliant pinks, the sparkling blues, and then, slowly, then
faster, had come the rich, red ball of fire that he had tried to paint. The
rocks sparkled, reflected the beautiful tints: the sky grew a deeper blue.
seemed shrouded in mystery, while the sun crept slowly toward the heavens.
and the sea became dull and calm, resting, ever resting.
VVhen the splendors were gone and the sun had becoine a merciless
burning ball of fire, the painter retreated to the cool of the forest. Now he
was waiting for the sunset.
It came. Over the tops of the trees it came. The sky was still blue!
the ocean still struggled in that oily, treacherous wayg the wind blew: the
birds still sang, but the man knew. The wind sang a different song. a song
of peace and rest: it grew more quiet and finally was humming a soft lullaby.
Though the birds still called to one another the saucy note of the day was
missing, and it fairly overflowed with love and promises. The ocean still
roared but with a different tone. for it writhed, it struggled, it threatened.
and the calm of the day was forgotten. lt was starting to struggle like a
living thing. for the night was the time it sought its prey. lt hurried land-
ward, pounding on the rocks, screaming with rage, trying to leap to the top
of the huge boulders, failing, screaming and frothing, to hurry back to sea.
The sun sank lower, grew redder, the sky bluer: now the clouds massed to-
gether like feathers in a pillow. The sun sank lower, the blue in the heavens
grew deeper, there were touches of purple away off: the streaks of fire in
the sky rivaled those in the sun. Right around the ball of flame that seemed
lightly resting on the earth was a riot of color, all massed together, blending
one into the other, gradually growing more distinct and the tones growing
bright, now dull, spreading, ever changing, melting at last into the heavens.
From the highest boulder the man watched. Slowly the fantastic shapes in
the heavens changed and the sun dropped over the rim. Gradually the shadows
crept in. Instantly the bright colors died, the soft grays and lavenders came
out, and then just the faintest hint of indigo dropped its mantle over all. For
a time there was silence. Even the ocean seemed to pause in its mad race.
lfearfully the man glanced over his shoulder. He hated that silence! The
shadows crept closer: somewhere a night bird mourned for its departed
mate: another took up the sorrowful call. A shiver crept over the man and
he wished that it was silent again, anything but those moaning calls. Here
in nature's choicest spot he was afraid! As the shadows crept closer he low-
ered himself to the ground. Again those bird calls! Filled with a nameless
terror and horror, his paints forgotten, he looked twice over his shoulder and
Hed! And the ocean still roared and frothed and struggled, but the man never
In the fifth hour of the day, when all through the halls
Not a teacher was stirring, for permits no calls,
That tiptoeing out from the south entrance door,
Two students came creeping, two and no more.
XN'ith a gasp and a giggle they ran to the streetg
'Twas to Ritter's they went, for the famed bittersweet.
A peep in the window showed no one on guard,
Each decided that valor would bring its reward.
And when each with delight her sundae was tasting,
VX'ith a gasp of dismay one saw faculty hastening
Straight for the spot of the famed bittersweet,
Desiring not pupils, but food she might eat.
But alas, duty calls, and she needs must obey,
And she orders them ninth and tenth hours to stay.
To their hunger some others than Ritter's now cater,
For we all in disgrace must fall sooner or later.
Massive and strong, and bold and grim,
Stands our Northwestern High.
The school, a mighty force it is,
To make all students sigh,
But best of all, as can he seen,
Its spirit never 'll die.
Its halls are hlled with laughing crowds,
All passing to and fro,
Half gay, half serious. one and all,
Each to his class to go,
And as the dreaded room draws near,
He drags his footsteps slow.
XYeek in, week out, from morn till night
He struggles on his way,
And when the mid-semesters come,
He to himself will say:
"Ah, mel when these exams are o'er,
'Twill be one happy day!
For then, till noon, I'll sleep and sleep,
And rest my weary braing
No more I'll try to stuff and cram,
For now I know 'tis vain.
'Twas useless ever to expect
To "ones" and "twos" attain."
He goes on Monday back to school,
And sits among the crowd,
And hears the old familiar strain,
"No whispering is allowed!"
But only little freshies green
Are by this ever cowed.
Throughout the term he goes,
Often with lessons camouflaged,
VVhat for-he only knowsg
For teachers, quick, his ruse discern,
His subterfuge expose.
Thanks, thanks to you, Northwestern igh,
For lessons you have taught!
Thus at the threshold of our lives
Some battles must be foughtg
'With failures met, and victories won,
Our fortunes must be wrought.

Girl vs. Ball
The moment now approaches
Vtfhen I fear to leave this landg
The pitcher has the ball
And the bat is in my hand.
VVith a whizz the ball comes flying,
I try to strike it hack,
I keep my life, though I miss the pill,
But my eye will e'er be black.
I wander through the halls,
A paper in my mitt.
Should I a permit need,
I sure would have a ht.
"Never trust the school clock."
'Twas a halmy night in Mayg
The janitor's work was done'
His playtime had begun.
Arrayed in his Sunday clothes,
Frock coat, and pink silk hose,
He gazed at the clock which hung
In the halls of the school primeval.
Thought he had lots of time
To give his shoe 'nother shine,
For he was going to meet Bridget-
Ahl yes, that was the secret'
He left the school when
The clock said 'twas seveng
And he thought of Bridget and of heaven.
Over yonder, where the little Fords run by,
For his Bridget he did spy, and spy.
No Bridget was in view-
VVould she dare to he untrue?
But now a clock began striking eight.
And Mr. janitor realized he was late.
His romance was ended forever, oh woe,
Because the clock in school was slow.
The Viri Club Dance
Those who did not attend the Yiri Club Dance-learned for the first time on Monday
that the corridor had been waxed. Some learned quickly.
Under the careful guidance of ,lim Coates and assistants, the moon shed its gentle
beams over the gym Hoor.

arrived by the close of the dance.
The Morning Psalm
To or not to Q'Cl,7Il'lllf is the question-
XYhether 'tis better on this day to suffer
The wrath and scorn of many an indigant teacher,
Gr to drive lessons with their cares away,
And sleeping, thus forget them? To go-to Hunkf
And by this flunking call upon my head
A rain of fours, which, raining, soil a record
That midnight toil has won: 'tis a misfortune that
One well might long to shun. To stay, to sleep,
To sleep? perchance to think l-Ay, theres the rub.
For on this couch of peace what thoughts may come
Xlhen eight o'clock has too far passed us by
Must cause us qualms? There's the respect
That makes calamity of too late hours.
For who would know the joys and rest of sleep,
Untainted by a conscience so dehled
XVith illness in prevaricating garb,
And epithets of oil-can, slacker, and a crumb,
Must contest with the chickens all the honors
Of earliest retirement.

Kennedy: "Yeh, I Hunked in my exam."

Hot dogs are inactive, rapidly rising in price, jumping three cents at a time, and

Hy M. H. Y.
"Hello-yes, this is Maisie. That you, Grace? You slept till noon? Lazy
old thing! XYell. I didn't-was up good and early.
"Y-e-s- -I guess I'm glad school is over. At first I felt like a colt turned
out to pasture, whatever that is like. Later, I don't know why-life became
sort of stale-staying in the house-helping mother a little, sewing a little,
but mostly, just lying around waiting for someone to call, or to take me out.
"I stood it as long as I could until day before yesterday, I got the grand
idea-and I put it right into working order,
"Oh, you never could guess in a year. No-No-I tell you I'm not going
to be married-not for a good many years, and when I do I'll be much more
worth while because ot my stand now.
"You give up? VYell-I'm going to be a business woman. Um-m, got a
position right away and went to work yesterday. Do I like it? I should say
so. I love it-it's so fascinating and has such wonderful opportunities to do
and be something worth while.
"The technical schooling and training alone, for a girl who cannot go to
college, is very valuable, and I get paid a good salary all the time I'm learn-
"I want to tell you that I am going to one of the best equipped and larg-
est technical trade schools in the world and right here in Detroit, too. People
come from all over he country just to visit it. Yes, I get paid from the very
hrst day. ,
"Of course you didn't know about it. Not very many people do-but you
come down with me and visit some day and you'll see.
"NVe have the most loveable and capable teachers-all women, and we
have every good thing you can think of, automatic salary increases-a girl
never has to tease for a raise, they come along every few inonthsg lots of
chances to gain promotions: an eight hour working day: lovely, clean, airy
rooms to work ing the nicest, cleanest, most fascinating work: quiet-rooms
and sitting-rooms for the girls, and lovely dining-rooms, where a good hot
meal is served for less than the price of the food alone.
"VVe have free medical advice, too, and sickness, accidents and death ben-
efits, and an old age pension. I don't want any of them now but they're good
to have coming when in trouble.
"XYhat? You can't guess? There are few companies in the State that
do as much for employees, and there isnlt another that employs as many
women-not nearly. Yes, it's the Michigan State Telephone Company, and
the school is called 'The Operators' Training Department' It is at 29 Mad-
ison Avenue, near the Detroit Athletic Club.
"Meet me there tomorrow at noon and I'll introduce you to Miss Condie,
and show you everything, You'll just love it, I know, because I do. No, you
won't feel a bit strange. everyone will be so cordial and pleasant to you.
"So long! Be sure and be on time. Good-bye."
