A Review of the Year
HE present school year opened very auspiciously with the
L largest enrollment we 11ave ever had. Every seat in the reg-
ll, .. X
Q24 . .
l ular study halls was occupied, and seventy pupils were seated
in the auditorium. This increased enrollment required two
additional teachers. Three of our former teachers responded
to our country's call for service in this war for democracy and did not
return to us in September. Another teacher is about to assume war
duties with the Y. M. C A. Not only our teachers but more than two
hundred and fifty of our students and graduates, have dedicated their
lives to our Nation's needs. Of these, Stanley Augspurger, George Sinks,
and Guinn Mattern have given their full measure of devotion.
lVe recall with sadness the death of our dear friend, and former
principal, Charles L. Loos. More than forty years of his life were given
to the youth of Dayton, and his benign influence will long endure. lVe
have raised a fund named in affectionate memory, The Charles L. Loos
Memorial Scholarship Fund. Seven hundred dollars have been invested
in Liberty Bonds, the interest of which is to be used for the financial
help of worthy pupils.
lVe have endeavored to bring clearly before the minds of our pupils
the justice and righteousness of our participation in this war by a formal
study of a book containing the best thoughts of present and former ex-
ponents of democracy, and by patriotic assemblies and addresses. lVe
have tried to apply our patriotism to the work nearest at hand and have
met our quota of Liberty Bonds, subscribed largely to the Y. M. C. A.
and Y. W. C. A. war work funds, been active in the Patriotic League and
Red Cross membership campaigns, and are now engaged in the Thrift
Stamp drive. Many of our teachers and pupils are engaged in some
form of Red Cross work and in other humanitarian war activities. The
faculty is helping with admirable faithfulness in the work of transcribing
industrial record cards for the draft boards.
The scope of our school life has been widened by the institution of
the Social Science Club, the Sophomore Noon-day Recitals, the Students'
Art Lectures, a History Club, and a Science Club.
With the record of our athletic teams we feel quite elated, having
had the best football team in years and the championship basketball
team of the State of Ohio. To Coach Bevan and to the members of the
teams, who gave their time and efforts so freely, we feel there is due a
great deal of credit.
The year has brought a more thorough grounding in the principles
of democracy and a greater veneration for our national institutions. It
has also brought separation, sacrifice, and death. ,But we know that
this sacrifice is made for a cause which, if lost, will bring a condition
worse than death upon all. J. H. PAINTER.

NOBILITY BINDS ME TO NOBLE OBLIGAT ON
In these times of mighty conflict,
when the flower of our nations
manhood is donning the lehalei and
marching away to face the enemy
upon bloody fields of battle, we, the
class of IQI8 of Steele High School,
tabe the motto, "Noblesse Obligen
as a torch of light to guide our foot-
steps. It is no small burden which
is laid upon us in this crzszsg we are
expected to gifve our hands and our
hearts in the service of our country.
We can do no less. Americas
life-blood is being poured out upon
the altar of freedom in far-away
Francegfor our protection and in
our defense. It is for us to decide
whether or not we are worth the
terrible price that is being paid.
This class, now going forth to meet
the crucial test, feels that it is an
obligation binding upon every one
of us to be strong--to be brafoe--to be
noble in efvery word and thought

Here the path ends 5 no longer side by side,
Happy and carefree, but, scattered far and wide,
Shall we pursue our way-the ,18 class-
Strong and courageous, and letting naught surpass.
Farewell, dear Steele, to you we owe a debt
Greater than gold, which can be repaid
Only by effort, not by vain regret,
When years have passed and our careers are made.
To some the busy thoroughfare of life
Where keen-eyed men direct the noisy strife
Of commerce and finance.
To some, perchance, the traveler's wandering ways .
Through foreign lands and sunlit, sparkling bays
And ancient Eastern towns.
To some the learned courts where justice reigns,
And where the lofty mind of man disdains
The low, mean aims of life. e
'l'o some the comfort of a warm home light
NVhere iires of love are ever burning bright
Upon the cozy hearth. I
To some the khaki and the clash of arms
Amid the trench's horrors and alarms,
Where iiows our nation's blood.
Each has his place, and each his task to do,
Lowly or lofty, it matters not at all.
Each to his chosen work should e'er be true
Until the night falls, then comes his holneward call.

CHRONICLES OF THE CLASS Ol" ONE THOUSAND NINE
HUNDRED AND EIGHTEEN.
Scribe-CHARLINE A. SANDER
And in those days of the year one thousand nine hundred and
fourteen there came to the tents of Parker nine hundred and fifty
daughters and sons of men of the world to confer with the chief, Clag-
get, concerning a place ill the tents of the tribe of knowledge for one
year. And on the seventh day of the ninth month, the doors liew open
unto them, a11d their names were put in the great hooks of the helpmates
of the chief scribe. And the law was given unto them thus: 'llwo D's
equal one failure. And the daughters and sons of men greatly wondered.
And the chief of the tribe of Parker was most wise and ruled the
children of men with patience and justice. And behold, he caused them
to open books and search night and day for knowledge. And the chief
did make a feast for the cheer of the tent maidens and sons, and revelry
reigned in the midst of the "Parker Party." Many times did the chief
of the tribe bid them to fun and frolic at Steele High School assemblies.
And the hearts of the daughters a.nd sons were warmed and brotherly
and sisterly love grew apace.
And it came to pass after many hours and days of struggle, work and
play, that all of the chief city of the fathers were bidden on the thirteenth
day of the fourth month of the year, o11e thousand I1lll6 hundred and
fifteen to the Inn "Memorial," to "Daytonia.." And the harpers did play
on instruments of many strings and fairies did dance and boys marched
to war as in the days of '61, And there was great rejoicing in the chief
tent at this grand success, and all went well with the maidens and youths
who were S0011 to leave their abode for the great tent Steele. 'l'hus
ended the first chronicle.
It was the seventh day of the ninth month of the year one thousand
nine hundred and fifteen, that these maidens and sons came knocking
at the doors of the great tent Steele. And happiness reigned supreme at
the joy of this meeting. The chief scribe, Painter, appointed them to
their tents, there to become the slaves of knowledge.
And these brave sophomores did take smilingly, all knocks and jests
in the upper loft and did give in return many a much practised yell to
the upturned faces of the superior classmen below. Nothing so unusual
marked the path of these '4Sophies," but they were loyal to the great tent
Steele, giving only of their best. Thus endeth the second chronicle.
Tim ANNUAL I'algc Thirty-three
And it came to pass on the third day of the tenth month of the year
one thousand nine hundred and sixteen, that the daughters and sons of
men again gathered in the tents of knowledge. A new tent had been
added to the camp, for the habitation of all who partook 5- a big shining
room, for the sole purpose of devouring that called lunch, and an adjoin-
ing room for the preparation of this daily repast. Under all was the
pride of the hearts of these maidens and sons--the ffgyinfl
Books were opened again and learning began to ooze iI1lU the gray
matter of these daughters and sons. And all did feel proud of "I'm a
Junior," for they did declare to all within the tents of the great tent
Steele to behold an organized class-at smiling, blushing president,
George llayner. Une, Katherine lllllll, was elected vice-president. It was
found good to appoint a. historian, who should collect in a volume the
doings of these maidens and sons, that future generations might know
and derive benetit therefrom. One James Bowers was chosen for his
ability. It was thought well to have a "peace keeper" at the gatherings of
these daughters and sons, and Edward Evans was elected, in order that
the upper members of the tribe, namely, the Seniors, might with all pomp
and ceremony for the last time be entertained. Five capable committee
heads were chosen--Laura Battelle, John Leibemlerfer, Emily Bailey,
Uharles Barkelew, and Richard Baird.
And it came to pass that the young men did bid the young maidens
of the great city, to the "Farewell" on June the fifteenth day, at the
ballroom of the Inn called tthleinorialf' llere reigned inerriment robed
in lavender and line white linens. Thus endeth the third chronicle.
And on the fourth day of the ninth month of the year one thousand
nine hundred and seventeen, the doors flew wide of the Great Steele of the
chief city when the daughters and sons of lll9Il again ca.n1e knocking.
Great books of more worldly wisdom than ever before were seen open in
tents Number 14, Number 12, a11d Number 15.
But all did not prevail in peace, not. only in the chief city of the
fathers, but in all the land about. For the chief man of the nation, called
Wilson, was on the warpath. And it came to pass that each Senior
maiden carried a bag, yarn, and two ivory sticks, while every fair youth
bought "a Bond." And the Feast of Tlianksgiving was celebrated on a
day when clouds hung heavy, and all of the great tent Steele, chilled to
the bone, watched the Lion to a. scoreless tie!
And it came to pass that these daughters and sons did not reassemble
after the t'hristmas feast, for reasons well known. But when the big chief
finally did summon them to their tents again, they came rejoicing, and
lhe gates flew wide 011011 to their touch. And the bell ringers of the great
tent Steele saw tit for a 11ew rule, and a new law was given, called the
"forty-seien-minute" law. And lamentations were loud in the land, and
there was wailing and gnashing of teeth.
And these daughters and sons gathered together and chose wisely
and reverently those who should rule and represent them-an athletic
hero, the president, Charles Barkelew. In order o11e should act in his
place should he be absent, Laura Battelle was chosen, the willing and the

helpful. The scribe to write the deliberations, namely, XVilliain Edgar
Sherman, was elected. A strong and mighty 'forder-keeper," known as
George Matthews was chosen. And five competent chairmen were elected,
thus: George Hayner, Dorothy Pierce, Dennis Brane, Robert Herr, and
And it Cillllt? to pass that the heart of the big chief Painter was filled
with pride, while all the land about was filled with praises. The Lion was
the State chalnpion. All of the great tent Steele did have a feast day.
Jazz did play, each victory was wo11 again, and silver trophies were pre-
sented. 4'Alinost solidl' gold basket balls were the keepsakes to the chain-
pions, and each and every o11e danced and danced 21,1111 danced.
But, behold, the last days were approaching when these daughters
and sons must say their 4ffarewells," each to go to the life that awaits
llllll, never to 1lllIlgl9 together in the saine place and with the saine coin-
panions as in the days gone by. The su11 goes down on the last day in the
great tent Steele, and with parchment in hand each maiden and
youth waves a last good-by, a11d with aching hearts thus closes the fourth
chronicle of the daughters a.nd sons of this year one thousand nine hu11-
dred and eighteen. '

lf Q a little figure svarrely higher than one's hand, clad in a long

To prevent too 1l111Cll curiosity, the next film shows a large yacht

To New York harbor is a swift transition. A great liner is just
steaming away from tl1e pier. Upon the deck stands a straight colu-

Junior Class History
ISTORY, it is said, repeats itself. This is truly so in the class
' I history, for does not each class ent-er upo11 its high-school
yi Qfgfffg-Q' 4,1 course at the same time, pursue the same courses of study,
g4lgQfi'pQi and graduate i11 the same blaze of glory inthe prescribed
' four years? The class of 1919, however, has tl1e distinction
of entering llptlll and continuing its course of study during the most
wonderful history-lnaking epoch of t.he world, and this great war will
always seem a part of, and synonymous with, our high-school career.
Our history may be divided into four chapters, three in retrospect
and the fourth in prophecy.
UHAPTIGI: I .-A grown up feeling might be described as the sensation
of the Freshman at high school, and at Parker especially, as there was
no upper class to obtrude itself upon one's self esteem. All went
merrily and there never wa.s a happier class than at Parker in 1916.
This year marked an event in the history of Dayton schools because of
tl1e Shakesperean Pageant, which was so successfully carried out toward
the end of the school year. This pageant was participated in by a large
number of the Freshman class.
CHAPTER II.-Any self-satisfied feeling that we may have brought
with us from Parker was speedily crushed to earth when we met the
cool and disdainful glances of the Juniors and Seniors at Steele. The
fact of our being beneath the notice of our superiors, was soon accepted
and we really rather enjoyed the role. By the Plld of the year we found
that we would be allowed to live, under certain restrictions, and at times
became overjoyed by S01116 show of favor from a Junior or a Senior.
CHAPTER III.-The third year of our history began with a better
understanding of our subject, a keener appreciation of the line of work
laid out for us, and a more thorough co-operation with our instructors.
After the mid-year our class was formally organized.
The class gave a Musical t.hrongh the kindness of Mr. Archie
hllllllllltl, the proceeds of which will provide the final entertainment, our
farewell, for the Seniors.
CILWTHR IV.-What tales of wonderful scholarship the next year
may unfold, we can only prophesy. At this time in the world's history
wl1e11 we know not what the next day may bring forth, we dare not look
ahead. XVe can trust, however, to a strong and true hand at the helm
of our na.tion's affairs, guided by the all wise Father to bring us safely
through, so that our school life and pla.ns may go on as before.
Donornv Iflnxrox, 'la
THE A NN UAL Pafyr: N'i.1'ty-seven
lf? UING to Steele next year?" f'Surely." "I thought so. Some
school, isn't it? lVhen we get there we'll make things hum."
Such remarks as these were heard in the halls of Parker long
before June, 1917. Each one of that band of more than two
hundred had his own reason for coming to Steele.
Vacation passed, we were happy in youthful pleasures and a share.
in Dayton's war work. .lVith high hopes and quickened pulse, in great
numbers we wended our way to the classic halls of Steele High School.
Upon arriving, we felt rather strange. Every one except the wandering
Sophomores seemed to know where to go. Finally, we discovered that
our new home was on the third floor--the little new children of the
Steele family were evidently to obey the old rule of being seen but not
heard. lVithin a week things were running smoothly and we began to
feel at home. But from time to time, we were reminded in various ways
of our humble position. Ill assemblies the speaker would frequently
begin by saying, '4Mr. Painter, Faculty, students of Steele and Sopho-
mores," with quite a degree of emphasis on the conjunction. The upper
classmen soon learned, however, that the new class was a real live wire
in the life of the school.
Unlike the Junior and Senior classes, the Sophomore class is unorgan-
izedg that is, it has no class otlicers. Nevertheless, there are certain
marks of unity, as we have some purely Sophomore activities. Every
'l'hursday there is a musical assembly. Here the talent of the class is dis-
Another feature of the year was a dance given by the former Vary
girls to the present members of that club which is a Parker organization.
'l'he purpose of the dance was lltlf only for a. good time but to bring the
two schools llll'0 closer relationship with each other.
lVishing to do something special this year, the boys organized the
Social Science Club. 'l'he purpose is a sort of class organization with
the aim: "To promote a democratic spirit among the boys."
Our class gladly did its share in the drive for Y. M. U. A. and
Y. XV. U. A. war work, also in the purchase of Thrift Stamps and
Liberty llonds and in all such worthy movements.
lVhat would the school athletics be without the spirited support of
the Sophomores? lYe point with pride to the fact that one of the boys
on that wonderful champion team is one of those 'tlittle Sophomores
green from the l"reshmen doors."
Like all other Steele students we are too young to shoulder a gun
or go as ll-ed Cross nurses, but we can do our part in the present world
war by boosting the sale of Thrift Stamps and Liberty Bonds. lVe are
looking forward with pleasure to vacation when we can work in the
gardens, help the Red Cross, and do anything that will be for the good
of our country. lVe are all trying to be loyal and true to the red and
black as well as true Americans. XVatch the class of 1920.

IG was a tall, broad shouldered young Anieriean, eonvalese-
ing in a l"'reneh hospital, who told me the story of his
"Little I'oilu." llere is the tale, minus all my own
foolish exelamations and questions:
You see, it was this way, Miss Naney. NYhen I tirst
eame over I was fortunate enough to be put in aetive
serviee. In a few months I had learned enough of the
ghastliness of the whole affair-and yes, of its glory.
Une day, my t'olonel sent for me a11d told me that I, with
several British oflieers, was to be sent out on rather a risky pieee of work.
I ean't tell you, even now. what it was, Miss Naneyg but I was glad of the
ehanee sim-e it. was the opportunity I had longed for.
Not until the evening I left did I meet my comrades. But what
a queer, unsuited "several" we were! 'l'he tirst man who gripped my
hand was a llighlander, an enormous ehap with the steadiest blue eyes
I ever saw. Mentally, I labeled him "Sandy" and derided that in a 4-lose
up tight' with the Bot-he we might depend on Sandy's brawn. l+"rom the
4-old hlue of Sandy's orbs, I turned to I'at-Pat whose eyes fairly twinkled
with good humor-I'at of the expansive grin and quirk wit. 'l'he third
member ot' our party was an linglishman-a reserved sort. ofa ehap, who,
before the war, I'll wager, played a jolly game of erieket and was adept
in the art of balam-ing a platter of cakes and a eup of tea on one knee.
llow were they sizing me up, I wonder?
We had a pretty gay little time of it., out there. None of us were
sorry, however, when our work was accomplished a11d we started bark.
Hur route led us through a devastated village whieh the Germans
had evaeuated only a few hours before our arrival. Pat said that he
expeeted the Fritzies were afraid of our "rigiment." We found shelter
in :1 halt' bombed house, and, by the time a tire was built and Sandy had
prepared "mess" it seemed almost eheerful.
Naturally. I, being Ameriean, wanted to see everything that night,
so while the rest of the fellows played poker around the tire, I explored.
l'll tell you it made me mad-the ruthless destruetiong those neat
little houses, only sueh a short time before, bright with tirelight. aml
lamplight, now only a heap of blaekened ruins. lIere and there a huge
ehimney stood silhouetted against the sky, stood like the spirit of those
dead peasants who, in happier days, had warmed themselves by it. And
then, the little t'athedral-heap after heap of overturned stones, save
where, a lonely sentinel, a Urueitix was standing. When I saw it there,

unchanged through all those changes, I thought of many things. and
somehow the outraged Christ seemed very near to me, there, i11 the dark-
Perhaps Fate guided me to the outskirts of the village. Surely, it
was Providence that eaused me to drink from an old well by the way-
side, and at that moment persuaded an over-clouded moon to shine down
on us there-on the well, on me, a11d a Curly headed youngster sleeping
o11 the grass. I
Stupiiied I leaned over l1im, tour-hed his hair to see if he were real,
and, with my usual elumsiness, awakened him. Something about me
must have reminded llllll of his half forgotten father, for he looked up
i11to my fare without a trace of fear. "Mon pere," he said.
I donlt mi11d admitting to you, Miss Nancy, that there was a queer
little thrill around my heart-region that I had never felt before. Then
and there I swore that an entire regiment of Germans could not take the
lad away from me. ' '
Back we trudged, the boy and myself, to Camp. Suddenly it oeeurred
to me-what would the fellows say? XVould they try to form-e me to give
up 1ny little 'tPoilu"?
They were still by the fire playing their everlasting poker. I gritted
my teeth, squared my shoulders for tl1e attaek, and placed the little chap
in the midst of- the eards-waiting for the explosion. There was a
stunned silenee, the kid blinked at the firelight, the11 threw baek his
little head and-laughed. It didn't take Pat long to find his eue, and
soon even George was pounding me on the bark. Sandy alone remained
sober and disapproving.
'4Ye'1'e daft, mon," he began tartly, after the tumult had subsided
and I had explained where I had found the boy. 't'l'hink ye we Can
keep th' lad wi' us in the trenehes? NVhere is the mither?"

side as unneeessary baggage. Come on, Sandy, be a jolly good sort and

forced to fall back, and when we finally held the foe, we discovered that,
in the confusion, Frencliy had been left behindl
Aghast we looked at one another. No time for argument, now.
Already Sandy was half way over the top, running toward our deserted
fortifications. Instinctively, we all followed. That run through the
hell-Iire of "No-man's Land" is like a dream to me. I can hear the burst
of shrapnel, can thrill again with the joy I felt when I saw Frenchy safe.
No one knows who carried himl back. As we crawled along the muddy
plain a star-shell burst over our heads, they sighted us-I felt a stinging
pain in my shoulder, the trench was only a few feet away-and then

Every world crisis has brought with it the resignation of all things
not directly pertinent to realizing the most advantageous outcome of the
conflict, whatever it may be, for the supreme issue underlying every
calamity is satisfactory surcease, to which end the whole thought of the
time directs its channels. Ilppermost in the minds of 111011, therefore,
may now well be the vindication of wronged peoples, the re-establishment
of the freedom of the seas, the downfall of feudalism, and with these in-
cidentally, the preservation of those principles which are the result of
ages of moral and political development. For nations have risen against
nations, and liberty itself swings in the balance. Although such an ap-
peal can lind its place among every sort of document, all that is contained
herein has as its theme a, different aim, a purpose more sweeping in its
scope: not seeking a cure for attained misfortunes, but rather a preven-
tion of their future repetition.
It is surprising what a great percentage of men's activities is directed
toward discerning the ideals of living, and in putting them, once found.
into practical application. That is, though t.he methods of gaining the end
are often complex, and the ultimate aim is frequently lost among the
many processes of its attainment, the labors of all times nearly all con-
verge toward the discovery of a recipe that may enable every one to live,
move, and have his being on a. plane of right thought and deed. This
very result was supreme in the mind of every Athenian leader, from
llraco to Vleisthenes, whose particular field of labor was to grant the
people of their city a voice in their own affairs. The present conflict is
exactly the same thing in a. different form. Every religious and moral
enterprise is of the same purpose-political reform, economic develop-
ment, betterment of social conditions, and a thousand and one other
more or less detailed divisions of this vast undertaking.
Every 0119 of these problems has a common solution, a general formula
by which all other inellfective means may be straightway put aside,
it' every man could but see it. Although many of these principles involve
whole nations and sometimes the entire world, none of them may be
brought into execution without instigation of individuals, among whom
socialism is an organization. 'l'here is not an ideal of any sort, high or
low, great or small, that does not at length, when all its exterior coating
of adaptation to circumstances is removed, resolve itself into a. plea to
every man that he should within himself, live a lite, not maintain an
Par c Nl'l'l'llfI -sim THE ANNUAL
Surely, no such goal can ever be reached by mediocre means, for to
live is certainly more than to dwell apart, little thinking of others' mis-
fortunes or felicities, hoarding one's thoughts or substance as the case
may be. Living is eve11 more than to perform oneis peculiar daily tasks
as well as they can be executed. A true life is one wherein there is
established an exalted standard, and a, never-ending impulse to reach it.
Such a life is anything but concrete and material, earthly, shallow, or
temporary, but it is a bioad highway toward immortality, whose pro-
duction needs instigation by something of its own calibre, for no high
etfect ever came from a low cause, and never will. Thereupon arises the
question: XYhat is it, thell, that is an eternal inspiration to live rightly?
Diverse, indeed, may be the answers to this interrogation, for people
have varying ideas of what living means, even though their intentions
may be of the highest sort. But certainly, only the answers proffered
by those whose experience has proven their worth, whose deeds have been
a memorial to their sincerity, and of lasting benefit to men, are worthy of
consideration. Such will always say: It is a thing of beauty alone, that
is a joy forever.
Everything beautiful is the result of an art, be wha.t it may. Thee
musician will say, "My art is an art because in it alone can I find expres-
sio11 of the lofty thought which must come to the surface." The sculptor
or architect will clai111 that by tl1e magic lines of his works. the ways
3.1111 means of which no one can fathom, he can attain the closest pos-
sible realization of l1is sought-for end, he can attain the closest pos-
from a lifeless nothing. A painter will insist that in a masterpiece are
contained more essentials of the beautiful, for in it he can tell of joy or
sorrow, exultation or lament, by a mere turning of his will. The natural-
ist insists that nobody can pai11t as nature does and that the products of
creation alone get nearest to their Creator. The poet--and the poet is
right-will say, 'Gly art is an art because it contains all of these." But,
whatever the artisan, he cannot, and never pretends to claim that his art
attains its end, for the goal is too lofty. Art is 11ot mere satisfaction in
beautyg it is an effort to obtain things wl1icl1 cannot be.
Therefore, let such an effort, a.nd such an inspiration to attain it,
be placed before a career, and it cannot fail. For when once a 1ni11d per-
ceives the beautiful, it can never wish again even to glance upon the ugly.
Is it possible that studied iniquity and poetry can exist simultaneously
within the same man? Envy, avarice, and all their associate impulses can
no more dwell together with a lyric than a square can lit i11to a circle.
N o arrogynt aristocrat, mindful only of himself and conditions to aug-
me11t his personal gain, and spurning every principle of democracy and
individual development, could possibly behold with stirring wonder the
beauty of a Gothic nave or mediaeval spire, with its thousand pinnacles,
which John Ruskin called "frozen music." YVho can imagine a Louis
of France going to a. symphony with any intention other than that of
displaying himself, or a von Hindenburg roaming a.bout the banks and
hr-aes of Bonnie Doon, longing for his sweetheart! Art and evil can never
'l'II lf: ANNUAL l'rLgc Scnmity-seven,
be mates, t'or as far as the East is from the West, so far is supertieiality
and shallowness removed from a deep affect-ion for the truly beautiful.
Though art is the greatest possession of mankind, it is, like genius,
"no snob." Beauty is as free as the wind itselfg any o11e may partake of it
without the loss ever being noticed-so vast is the reservoir of its mystery.
'l'heret'ore, let every one freely breathe it, and i11 so doing all that false or
perfidious within him must needs take flight, for the simple reason that a
man cannot serve both God and mammon. NVith this there comes a real-
ization of the moralist's ideal, a suggestion of the poet's dream, the fore-
shadowing of a perfect day, when life shall be worth living for all the
children of men. Avarice, deceit, treachery, and cowardice cannot. thrive
in such an atmosphere, they will perish. Then shall the earth yield her
increase, and then shall thoughts of seliishness tthe primary author of
all misdeeds l, everything that tends toward making the world other than
it should be, from a petty theft to the waging of a. mighty war, bringing
in its wake the desolation of 01109 fruitful fields, the sorrows of the home-
less, the well-nigh endless outcries for o11e moment of rest, cease to have
their being, and all the earth shall dwell upon Olympus.

fSlim Jim could not remember when he had not been a. hobo. Of
course there were vague memories that haunted him, sometimes at night,
of a. brown cottage, a. whitewashed fe11ce, even of downy yellow chickens,
cuddling under a clucking hen. The scent of lilacs always aroused a half
said, wholly sweet lo11ging for what, he kI1ew not.
But in the main, life to l1i1n meant o11ly the road. He was Ilflt very
sociable UVQII to others of his calling. He rather liked the solitude of
travelling alone. He sometimes stayed at 0116 place quite awhile, if he
could find something to do, and folks did not run him away. He was not
wholly averse to labor, only it seemed as though the work could not hold
him, his heart was not in it. He often wondered if he had had a trade,
or really knew something, whether he would stick. He thought he could,
but no one offered to help him, or gave l1i1n any encouragement. No one
So on he went, blithely gay in the spring especially, making friends,
mostly a.mong the dogs and children, a11d in the fall, he started for a
warmer climate. His furlined overcoat was in hock, he gleefully told
himself, and he would l1a.ve to strike out for Palm Beach.
As for his age and appearance, well, he only knew his age as it was
told to him by his old pal, Red Holley, the old man whom he remembered
first, a11d wl1o gave him his name a11d age. He had died four years before
and ever since then, Slim had been very solitary.
f"l'here's only two things thatlll make you quit the road, sonny,'i
the old man explained, "women or warg you look out fer both uv 'em.
Hut. if you ever do need a. better name than Slim Jim, jes, tell 'em yer
James Drew Chanler."
"But Red, is that my 1l21illl8?'7 the slim boy of fifteen or thereabouts,
"Oh, thatill do," he answered shortly and tramped on.
XVomen or war! "XVell," he thought without bitterness, 'ftbere wasn't
much chance of a woman looking at me, let alone marryin, me, and as
fer war, there hadn't been none fer quite a while, and n1ight'nt ever be."
But he was wrong. His slim figure, wavy brown hair, and clear gray
eyes, with his engaging smile, was the cause of more than one woman
breaking her rule of never feeding a tramp. As for war, Slim's knowledge
of the atfairs of state was very limited. lied had taught him all he knew,
which was little enough and he had no money for reading matter.
'l'he sun was 11ot yet high but the heat was plainly felt. He wollld

have to stop at the next farmhouse for at drink. Ambition stirred feebly
in his breast. Perhaps he eould get something to do for a while.
The next farmhouse proved to be a. very inviting o11e. Painted
white, it hid partially behind a row of beautiful maples and the barn
and outbuildings told the passerby of prosperity. A young girl, perhaps
eighteen, was pulnping water into a bueket. She eyed him with an
unfriendly gaze. Ile smiled.
"Can l get a drink of water here?" Iler eyes softened.
"I suppose so," she answered. lle drank long and she stood wateh-
ing him. XVhen he had finished, he wiped his mouth on his sleeve.
"ho you think ,ver pa would have anythin' for me t' do fer a while?"
"Pa don't like tra.mps." Slim wineed. lle was used to being called
a tramp, but the word o11 her lips hurt him. Somehow he wanted her to
"I kin help with th' plowin'," he urged. The girl's eyes were sad, as
she let her glanee wander around the plaee, then bark again to him.
"You see sinee the war's deelared and Hill wants to go, Pa is real
sore when he sees a tramp. He thinks they ought to go 'stead of our Bill.
We need him fer the erops. He's promised to wait a little while yet but
l'm afraid he'll go."
Slim heard her in amazement. So there was a war, and even here
-well, this girl appea.led mightily to him. Ile tried not to show his
surprise, she would think hi1n sueh a green.
So he shrugged his shoulders and turned. UI reekon l'll be travellin'
then." he muttered. The girl's faee showed plainly her disappointment,
though her eyes blazed seorn. Ile really hadn't looked that kind. She
took up the bueket and went into the house.
As Slim entered the next town, he was well aware of the war atmos-
phere. lleretofore he had avoided the larger towns at least, but now he
walked holdly along the streets, taking in the tiags and the suppressed
exeitement. everywhere. At last he found it. The recruiting otliee, brave
with flags, was su1'rounded by knots of eitizens and khaki elad soldiers.
lle stopped to read a poster. As he stood there, with t.he eolors fluttering
in the spring air, spelling out the words, something hitherto latent stirred
within him that made him throw baek his shoulders and hold his head
ereet. Even the girl was forgotten in this moment, as his heart expanded
with love for this, his eountry.
A soldier eame up a11d watched hiln. "Want to rome in ?" he queried.
Slim flushed. It had been so long sinee any one had spoken to him with-
out the toueh of seorn. Ile drew a. long breath and answered.
"Yes, sirf' '
NVhat, followed was like a dream. He eould answer questions, and a
little smile aeeompanied the giving of his name. Now he urns some one.
'l'he otlieer gave him a quizzieal glanee as he said it: "James Drew
Uhanler, aged nineteen!!
'l'he doetor who examined him, complimented him.
"It's the outdoor fellow we need," he explained, 'tyou're in perfeet
health, though lean, and a few months of training will make a real soldier
of you." Slim nodded gravely. He learned that he was to go to a tra.in-
ing eamp in the next State in the morning, a11d when he had donned his
l'uya' High ly 'Fun ANNUAL
uniform, he asked the officer if he n1ight say good-bye to--some one. lfle
consented witl1 a half s111ile. There was always Usome one" to whom they
must say good-bye.
As he tran1ped along tl1e road agai11, the cl1a11ge was not only i11 l1is
outward appearance, but QVQII a greater change was i11 himself. Ile no
longer slouched aimlessly. He was a man witl1 a duty Zlllll a goal before
l1in1. Isle l1ad not go11e fair before a huge automobile filled with khaki clad
1nen passed l1in1, then stopped.
"Goin' our way?" they cried.
'telust a couplai miles," he answered. So he crowded i11 and as they
neared the white farmhouse, he signalled them to stop.
"Live here?" they queried.
"Nope," returned Slim, tl1en iiushed. Tl1e blush called forth good-
'ttlhl So she lives here!" As tl1e llliltdllllf' sped away, the girl i11 a
fresh gingliam, came out of tl1e ll0llSP. He went to l1er a11d looked into

"Uh! It's you I" she exclaimed as sl1e looked up i11to l1is face.
"You did remember 1110 K" he cried joyously. She t0lll'll8tl his suit with
her finger, shyly.
"So you did e11list, I was afraid you wouldn't." Ile looked into her
blue eyes till l1er lashes dropped.
'fNow Bill can stay an' take of you and the crops. I want you to
tell him that," Slim spoke gently.
'fYou tell l1in1, llP'l'P l1e comes now," as a, lank freckle-faced lad of
seventeen came i11to the yard. And i11 his most wi1111ing manner, he told
the boy some of tl1e facts he had heard. He was needed here as badly as
i11 tl1e I'2lllliS now.
'fWhy-you-all will l1ave to feed us," l1e ended.
"lVell, l'll stay 'til crops are in then, but you bet this winter I'll
go." He turned to his sister, f'Say, sis. who's your friend ?" She' blushed,
but Slim smiled and answered, 'tlVhy, l'm just Jim, Jim flll2l,Illl'I'. I
wanted to say good-bye to my sweetheart. before I went."
HAH right, go ahead," grinned tl1e boy and he rain toward the barn.
As he tramped back to tl1e city l1e was happier than ever before. He
had met pa and lllil, and they felt they owed l1in1 a, debt of gratitude for
convincing Hill to stay on the farm., They were very friendly, illltl

fishing hamlet i11habite4l by quaint tisher folk, who live their simple lives
day by day i11 a11d out of their si111ple sharks of rough boards an4l tar-
paulin, some of which are perched upon piles, to be out of the ti4les I't'2l.f'll.
Une day, late in August., in one of these humble eabins, Aunt Nannie,
as tl1e hamlet. i11 general called her, singing a hymn i11 a deep and, 0118
might say, l'2l.flll'1' hoarse voice, peered into the great oven of her woo4l
stove at-well, it is e11o11gl1 to say that it was Saturday afternoon.
lVhat else Wlllltl Sil.flll'll2lj' afternoon mean on Pape Ann but bake4l beans
and lll'0lVIl lll'0tltl in one's oven Z'
Having satisfied her 4-uriosity as to the state of the t'0Ili'6IliS of the
oven, she straightened up with some ditiieulty, for Aunt Nannie was no
slimmer fllilll she tl1lIl02ll"0tl, and brusl1i11g bark a wisp of grey hair, which
ha4l escaped from o11e of l1er Sl'l'llIll1l0llSly Il0tlf l'llI'l papers, she drew
aside the eurtain of a near-by window and l00k9fl o11t toward the
0Iltl'2l1llC't' of the little 4-ove on which her house fronted.
The objeet of her search was he who, known to the world as "Unele
Jehoi," was 11ow standing up i11 his dory, which was piled high with lobster
pots illltl sundry barrels, as he laboriously rowed it to the shore.
'l'hen Aunt N2lllI1l0'S gaze fell llptlll the 91141 of the wharf, where the
afternoon Sllll shone 4lown 011 a row of the inhabitants of the eonnnunity,
whose ba.4-ks only were visible. 'l'hey were sitting, their feet hanging to-
ward the water, in positions 'tl9lllt'flllQ relaxation.
U nele Jehoi hailed o11e of tl1e1n with some excitement. "lVell, well,"
he said, as he 4lrew near enough to extend his brawny hand to the owner
of the yellow oilskin bark, "I'm glad to see ye again, Jaek. How's the
world treatin' ye? Still swor4l fishing are ye? I hear tllQj',I'Q eatin' whale
meat up to Bosting IIUNV adaysf'
'l'he young lllilll of the slieker laughed an assent. "Yeah, Unele,
they're a eatin' thet illltl lots o' other things an, glad to git it these days
when foo4l is gettin' so expensive like."
'l'he owner of a blue shirt spoke up. "Saw three school o' mackerel

he made his dory fast to the wharf: "Aint had no luek lately with

mornin' to pull other feller's pots. He bothers tl1e trawl buoys some too
I guess, whenever he gets a chance. Don't see as how we'll ever get
enough l101' to keep body nor soul togetherf' A deep silence followed
this pessimistic outburst during which the men puffed at their pipes
or stared gloomily out to sea.
"Jehoida-a-a," a voice rang out on the salt breeze. "-lehoida, is that
a school o' mackerel comin in there?" It was Aunt Nannie who called
for her gaze had again wandered to the mouth of the cove where it had
perceived a whirling a11d splashing in the water.
The fishermen leaped up and jumped into their dories exclaiming.
Une of them rowed out beyond the swishing whirlpool and then swiftly
rowed in towards it. The silvery vortex moved in to the mouth of an
inlet ill the cove. The other dories soon closed ill on it. Jack of the
yellow slicker had hastily snatched a long net which Aunt Nannie l1a11ded
to l1in1 from tl1e recesses of a barrel in her little house, and had with the
help of other energetic youths stretched it across tl1e mouth of the inlet
by means of three or four dories. i 'fblow chase 'em," some one cried, and
a number of small boys who had accumulated beat the water of the
narrow creek with oars, frightening the iish back toward the I1Pt. What
a. sight it was, tl1e revolving mass of tins and tails! The fisherman closed
up on the mackerel as they swam into the middle of the net and dragged
them to one side of tl1e creek pulling them up into tl1e shallow water.
By this time the entire hamlet had gathered in punts, canoes, rafts,
anything that came to hand, and were ready, since they had not been
assistants in the chase, to reap the benefit with those who had. Every
one set to work gathering up the fish by airmfuls and throwing them into
the dories. Even Aunt Nainnie who, not as agile as in former days. still
enjoyed tisherman's sport, throwing all thoughts of rheumatism to the
four winds, was in the water up to her knees scooping up the mackerel
with the liveliest of them.
By dark there was not a fish left in the net, and the crowd crossed
the cove with their gleaming cargoes, and tired, returned to their houses
to dream of piles of silver mackerel' and coming feasts thereon.
iVhen the moon rose that night and shone down on tl1e sleeping
hamlet. beside thesea, I think he gave old Father Neptune a wink as
much as to say, "They will find who's who among Hoover's helpers?

as ll'2lIlSl2lll'll i11 tl1e fl'l'lllS of tl1e present ti111e. We also lilltlii' that we are
lighting a war for t.he prese1'vation of deiiioeraey. This, however, is Illll a
11ew term, Ollt' invented just sinee the heginiiing of tl1e war. It had its
l1egi1111i11g the latter part of tl1e eigliteenth and the beginning of the
lllIll'l'0Pllfll 1-enturies. Tl1is deinoeratie spirit is retlerted i11 tl1e literature
of that time. It was tllltll that tl1e theory was put forth that all 111e11
have equal rights to life, liberty, and tl1e pursuit of happiness. It was
this theory that was llll'0l'IJ0l'il1l'0ll i11 Olll' lllFl'li1l'2ltl0ll of Independenee in
1776, and it is this tl1eory that we flllll i11 tl1e minds of tl1e thinking IIIPII of
the eighteentli century. It is retleeted i11 tl1e literature of this ti111e: ill
t.he IIPNV forni of prose, the 11ovel, and i11 tl1e poetry. Ill tl1e 11ovel we see
that tl1e people were taking lll0l'P interest i11 the lives of ordinary 111e11
and NVUIIIVII tl1a11 i11 those of kings and queens or tl1e aristoei-aey. But
it is the poetry of these days that voieeslthe spirit of the ti111e.
Tl1e heralds of tl1e dawn of denioeraey were Burns and Blake. How
beautifully yet how si111ply Robert Burns portrays tl1is spirit of demoe-
raey i11 his poems! Many of these thrill with patriotism, and a desire
for freedom. iVe all love Burns for that spirit of denioeraey so promi-
ll0llt i11 his works. In "A Man's a Man For a' 'llllilin we have a elear
eoiieeption of what tl9lll0l'l'8l'y really is. This is expressed i11:
'4The rank is hut t.l1e guinea's stamp,
A lll2lIl'S a. man for a' that."
ls not tl1e ll1'l'Sl'Ilt war bringing o11t the truth of this poem? All
of tl1e soldiers are treated with tl1e same respect. No tllStlIlCil0I1 is made
hetween tl1e rirh Elllll tl1e poor. And, too, it applies to every 0119 of IIS.
Those of the wealthier rank will soon, if ll0l"5lll'f'tllly, he Ull a level with
tl1e working rlass. As tl1e war continues, this diiferenee will heeome
less and less pro111i11e11t. -
Blake was also filled witl1 211 passionate longing for true sorial free-
tllblll and justiee. Ile expresses his thoughts i11 the SW4'9Illl1gI phrase:
"l'1ve1-ytl1i11g that lives is holy." Ile thus gives to 11s tl1e ventral spiritual
truth Ull wliirh demoeraey rests. Blake had great pity for tl1e poor,
11,1111 Illilllllidl for their soeial ll0l'iPl'lll9Ilt. 1
This same tllllllgflll' of the saeredness of life is presented to 11s i11 the
HAlll'll'llf hltll'lI10l',l7 hy Samuel Taylor f'oleridge. There is certainly a
lesson i11 it for every 0119 of us. The idea that 'tin the sight of God all
things are holy" is portrayed i11 these lines:
Page lu'1iyl1f,1j-eiyllt 'llllli ANNUAL
'flle prayeth well, wl1o loveth well
Both lllilll and bird and beast.
He prayeth best, wl1o lovetl1 best
All things both great and Slllilllg
For tl1e dear God wl1o loveth us,
Ile lllillltf and loveth all."
'lllll' desire for fl'l'Pll0lll was also astir i11 the hearts of the l"1'e11cl1
people, also. They formed a l'l5V0lllll0ll2ll'y creed XVllll'l1 is expressed i11
these three words, Uliberty, equality, fl'l1t0l'lllf-j'.l, Frzuice was too oc-
cupied by the eve11ts which followed to express in poetry these new
l'0V0llll'l0I1iiI'j' forcesf fl0l0I'ltlQIt1fll2lfl ll99Il influenced by tl1is great, up-
lll'i11VZll. But' there was a,11otl1e1' English poet of tl1is period wl1o was very
111111-l1 interested i11 the attairs of Fl'2l111t'C. 'I'l1ro11gl1 tl1e works of Words-
worth we can 2ll'llll21llll' ourselves witl1 tllk? I'9V0lllfl01l21l'y tlfillllil-.
But, the two poets wl1o carried the torch of De111oc1-acy were Byron
and Shelley. Byl'0Il'S poetry is full of the forces of revolt allfl of self-
assertion. But there were nobler forces at work i11 tl1e Revolution, illl'
pulses not of personal desire, but of a great love, a yearning toward
justiee and social peace. These iinpuolses are expressed i11 the work of the
greatest English lyric poet, Percy Bysshe Shelley. His passion for free-
lllblll controlled l1is life. Indeed, l1is wl1ole being vibrated with love for
freedom and for his f6ll0W-1ll9I1. alle believed that the day would come
Wllitll 111en would actually see alltl realize their ideal." 'llllI'0llg.fll all l1is
Il091llS we can see l1ow l1is idea. of freedom ripens and gains i11 actuality.

The Eccritean Literary Society again, as usual, has done excellent
work. Under the able leadership of Miss Laura Battelle, the first presi-
dent of the year, tl1e society gave very interesting programs on ttSpanisl1
Aniericaf' The next president, Miss Katherine Hunt, chose for her sub-
ject, "Current Magazines," and several ehorister meetings added to the
pleasure of her term. During the presidency of Miss Pauline Smith, a
most fitting topic was discussed-'tThe XVar." Under the able leadership
of our last president, Miss Alice Pearce, we expect to enjoy a very happy
and beneficial time together.
Socially the Eccritean is very fortunate. A delightful H'allowe'en
Dance and the 4'Mid-winterv were given with the Spur Literary Society.
The alumni tea was an occasion of the holidays, and many of the old
Eccritean members enjoyed the pleasant affair. Eecritean was especially
fortunate in securing Mrs. Marlay to talk to the society on 4'XVar Poetry,"
which was extremely enjoyed.
NVith a spirit of patriotism, 211111 in a. great desire to serve their
country, the girls sold little Red Gross dolls, and gave the proceeds to lied
Cross work. They also voted to buy a, Liberty Bond-another evidence
of the patriotism of Eecritean.
. , But we must not fail to mention the great honor brought to our
school, when the 'basket ball players won for us the State championsllip.
To show our appreciation of them, we, tl1e girls of Eccritean, agreed to
make the coach and winning team, honorary members of our society.
Thus, this year, so happily remembered by all, is now at an end and
the work of the year in Eccritean has been brought to a successful finish.

Spur inspires a11d strengthens us and keeps our ideals high and pure.
Ill all that we do we judge first whether it is worthy of a member of
Spur, whether it is in accordance with Spur's code of right. NVe are con-
stantly reminded of our motto, "A spur to prick the sides of my intent."
Topics on the war have held the first place on all our programs
this year, and other subjects of current interest have been added from
time to time. XVe have had an interesting program on the poetry of
John Masetield, of Robert Service, and several war poets. Debates have
also been given.
We have been busy with war work this winter, knitting' for the
soldiers, making the separate articles the lied Cross requires, and also a
large blanket, one square of which was made by each member. lVe have
also contributed toward a Liberty Bond.
But our war activities did 11ot wholly replace our social ones. Our
fall dance with Eccritean was looked forward to with pleasure and our
hopes were splendidly fuliilled. The mid-winter was equally a success.
The Seniors leaving will never forget Spur and all that the society
has meant to them. 'Phe Juniors and Sophomores will carry on the work
with the same loyalty and devotion which has always been shown for

XVith twelve old members around which to build this year's society,
the Forum began ,its activities under tl1e leadership of Ralph Herr.
During Mr. Herr's term, we made splendid progress, topics dealing with
current events and modern inventions being discussed. Ernest Baldridge
was selected as the next president, and directed programs pertaining to
war topics. At the close of Mr. Baldridgels term of office, Harold Oldham
became president. During his successful term, only debates were taken
up. These proved to be of great help to the Seniors in their later work
along this line. James Bowers will assume the presidency now, and con-
tinue his ofiice throughout the spring months.
The social activities included a wiener roast at Polo View Camp
early in November, M r. and Mrs. Libecap acting as chaperons. The Mid-
Winter Dance took place at the Dayton Club. This dance proved very
enjoyable, and the members look back with great pleasure to it. A Spring
Dance, a wiener roast, and al picnic are to be given in the near future.
It is certain that the yearls success is due to the splendid co-operation
of the members and the presidents in the matter of preparing the pro-
grams. . .

The spirit of the times has been largely reflected in the year-'s work
done by the Agora. The girls have as a body united themselves with the
Patriotic League, and have also taken part in the various activities in
connection with the Red Cross and similar work. The society has con-
tributed to the Liberty Loan fund and to the Red Cross campaign. lt has
also helped in the sale of Thrift Stamps and in the movement for the
conservation of food. The regular literary programs have dealt-with such
subjects as gave the members intelligent ideas of the great issues of the
hour. Under Harriet Hiatt, Mary Elizabeth McClary, Dorothy Boyd, and
Louise Greble as presiding officers. the work was interesting as well as
comprehensive, and the members have reason to feel gratified with the
results attained. Because of the urgent demands of the times, the social
activities of the society have been cut to a minimum, and the Agora and
its alunnae have enjoyed but one dance this school year. The society will
miss greatly its Senior members, who have been especially devoted to the
interests of the Agora.

The Gavel is occupying a place in Steele as one of its foremost
although not one of its oldest societies. Its purpose has been not only to
help its members to get the most out of their school life but to form habits
and cultivate ideals which will guide them through their entire life.
Through its medium, lasting friendships have been formed and many
never to be forgotten events enjoyed. All in the society have endeavored
to live up to our characteristic motto: '4Victory and truth is the true
basis of noble manhood."
The Sophomores have not been entirely dependent upon the older
members but have acted largely in their own initiative. The Junior
and Senior members ha.ve worked conscientiously and acted as capable
leaders in promoting the best interests of the society.
Our literary work has been truly representative of the times, the
programs having assumed a warlike and patriotic character, in which
each member has shown a readiness and willingness to co-operate in order
to make them a success.
Under our first president, Russell Young, we made a fresh and deter-
mined start. The leadership of Stewart Bernard made a. rousing Dutch
Lunch and a very successful midwinter dance possible. Now we are an-
ticipating a spring dance and a picnic.
Although a successful year has been enjoyed both socially and in a
literary way the Gavel has not been lacking in athletics. This year, as in
former years, the Gavel has been well represented on each of Steele's

In 1912, Aurean presented Steele with the first one hundred dollars
toward equipping a gyinnasiuiu-then a. ful'-away possibility. A portion
of this lnoney was recently expended in the purchase of the Giant Stride,
installed in March. This piece of 2lpp2ll'iltl1S has given much enjoyable
exercise, especially to the girls. 1
The society is proud to boast of its illllllllli, many of whom have be-
come notably successful. It is represented by missionaries to China and
the Philippines in Hazel Myers and Agnes Drury. Some have become
high school teachers, musicians recognized in New York, club Women,
and competent secretaries of two Dayton high schools.
If il. good beginning assures 21 good ending, this H1-st decade of the
Aurean Literary Society promises great things for the'future.

enthusiastically and each one may feel proud of the society in view of
both literary illlll social activities, that this year have never been sur-
passed. Our standard is high and each girl, keepiligjtllis in mind, has
been working hard to bring our work to that point of perfection to
which our ambitions may lead us.
Katherine Tisher the first resident began the vear with her pro-
7 7 D .1
grams of, f'Movie Subjects," which proved to be exceedingly interesting.
Our next rresident Anna lletrick chose for her sub'ect "Miscel-
7 7 . 7
lancous To nes." Durinv' each meetinff the most irommeut current
topics of the day were discussed. During Miss Detrick's term a well
prepared debate was given. The Mid-Winter Dance was held at Steele
on December 222 and was enjoyed by all the members.
Bernice Garrison is the president for this term, which is proving
to be the most interesting of the school year. The programs o11 "lVar
Devices of the Day, and the People of Allied Nations," have been most
benciicial to the girls and each irogram has been eafferlv antici rated
21 4 h -f
by all. The spring dance given April 1,2 proved a worthy successor to
the others as to enjoyment.

Hlfl elubifor girls, the rlub for study'and help, the club for you,
is the bteele X. ll. t . A.! More girls have had a good train-
ing and have learned to enjoy life better through the Steele
t'lub this winter, than ever before. For two years now we
have rome up to the requirements of the Federation and we
are proud to be eonnerted with tl1e lVorld Fhristian Student l+"ederation.
Every Steele girl should Come and be one of us. All Steele girls are
weleome. Our able president, Josephine Albert, has been guided by the
best of advisers, Miss Fergus, Miss Hreene, and Mrs. Williams who are all
girls with us and who do so mueh to make the meetings and good times en-
joyable and helpful to all.
But it is 11ot all play. Eaeh of us has some work to do, sueh as read-
ing to a blind woman, iilling l,ll11'lSllllHS baskets for needy families, and
also serving for the lied Cross.
One of our soeial times was ftopen house" for our mothers. As
this annual affair was given in costume the girls enjoyed it tre-
mendously, and we believe the mothers, too, enjoyed it. The faeulty
tea. was another great day, as a. play was given, and tea. and eakes were
aetually served! We hope more of the faculty will be at the next faeulty
tea when new menibers are with us and ean enjoy it too. Another thing
that every girl enjoys is the membership suppers, whieh none of us will
Come, be one of us and with us. It will help to tit you for better
work i11 life, this happy, busy Y. XV. C. A. Steele Club.

Announces wide its good fortune.

Oft has it brought the public gaze
Upon Steele High, pride of the land.
So thanks to it, our loyal band.

The 1917 Football Team A
UCH men as Captain Boyd Compton and a host. of other faith-
ful football followers of Steele High have accredited this
Lmislgih, year-'s team as the best one which Steele ever had. Wfith
three backiield n1en who had played regular and only one
regular line man who had played the year before, Coach
Bevan was given a rather discouraging greeting. Also he had but three
weeks within which to sort, and at the same time, coach this green ma-
t.erial for the opening game. Steele started with a defeat, as Piqua was
a team of four years' experience and team play. It was also our worst
defeat, but it is believed that it could have been averted had it been
played later in the year. From this time on, except for the Waite game,
Steele ran through and around her opponents and won consistently. The
gradually increasing strength of the team increased its followers' en-
thusiasm until Stivers was met. on Thanksgiving, when Steele's superior-
ity was demonstratled at every turn.
Steele's backfield, composed of Captain Hayner, Maltby, Murray,
and Reiter, and substitutes Dye, Klee, and Quartel, displayed real ability.
The interference, along with the teamts ability in general to mow down
the defensive ends and backs, was at all times spectacular 3 and the large
scores made show that each man could carry the ball well.
Steele's line was green, but developed. They charged well offensively,
ran perfect interference, and displayed rare defensive ability and strength.
Ends Shirer, Dye, and Klee could drive the play in at all times, and were
sure and desperate tacklers. They covered punts well and gained many
yards on forward passes to them. Tackles Murphy, Dixon, Fowler, and
Murray played well, the former two working offensively and the latter
two defensively, Murphy going to defensive half and Dixon exchanging
tackle for center with Fowler, Murray coming from offensive full to
defensive tackle. Guards Baldridge, Bowers, Matthews, and Hall were
dependable. They blocked several kicks that helped Steele's scoring, and
were good defensively-and offensively.
Coach Bevan and Captain Hayner, as well as the team, disliked very
much to have such a good team disband. Steele's enthusiasm and appre-
ciation made the season very pleasant for the players and coach, and one
which they will never forget.
Letters were awarded the following men: Captain Hayner, Maltby,
Murray, Reiter, Dye, Shirer, Klee, Dixon, Murphy, Baldridge, Bowers,
Hall, Matthews, Fowler, Quartel, Tippy, Becker, and Herr.
Steele scored 245 points to their opponents' 67. The scores were:

Basket-ball, 191 7-18
'BILITY, determination, and hard work skillfully directed,
1: , made possible the success of the basket-ball team in the past
season. Their success did not come easily for never were
M g conditions more unfavorable for the training of a team, but
its final achievement was more satisfactory for having been well earned.
In the first game Steele won from Lebanon, 55-11. This victory was
followed by one over the Alumni team, composed of such players as
Bains, Conn, Graham, Hull, Landis, and Garland. The Alumni were
leading at the end of the first half, but even their rough and tumble
tactics were not enough to prevent their final defeat.
At Xenia the Steele team met with its first defeat. An overtime
period was necessary to decide this game, the score being tied at the
end of the second half. In the overtime period Xenia scored three fouls
against Steele's field goal, thereby winning the game by one point. At
Liberty, Steele was again defeated by a. small margin. In this game
Steele was handicapped by the absence of Reiter.
After the Liberty game Hayner, who had been playing a forward,
and Reiter, a. guard, changed positions. After this change the line-up
remained the same for the rest of the season, Maltby and Reiter playing
forward with Dye as substitute, Barkelew center with Bernard substi-

Hamilton played Steele at Dayton and was defeated in a close
and exciting game. The score was tied at the end of the first half 6-6, but
in the last half the Steele team was able to more than double the score
on their opponents, Winning 19-S. The Middletown game, at Middletown,
was one of the hardest of the season. In this game neither team was able
to gain other than a small lead until with but two more minutes to play
and the score tied, the Steele teanrgot together and was able to score
several baskets and win the game 31-26. Piqua, one of the best teams in
the State, was defeated 38-17. In the first half the rival teams seemed
evenly matched, but in the last half Steele held her opponents helpless.
Norwood lost. to Steele in a fast game, 52-20, and McGuffy 21-16 although
Captain Maltby was out of the game with a sprained shoulder.
The next game was with Stivers. Both Steele and Stivers had strong
teams, each winning most of its games. But shortly before the Steele-
Stivers game the hopes of the 'Steele supporters were shattered by the
news of the illness of several of the Steele players. But Stivers refused
to postpone the game, making it necessary to play on the schedule date,
although the Steele team as played against Stivers, practiced together
but once in the week before the game.
Stivers, however, was disappointed if she expected an easy victory
over the weakened Steele team. In the first half the Steele players
surprised every one by outplaying Stivers and gaining a three-point lead,
the score at the end of the half being 12-9. This lead was retained until
near the end of the game when the Steele team finally weakened and
Stivers was able to score the points necessary to win the game. The
final score was Steele, 22, Stivers, 26.

Steele at the Tournament
State champions! How many of us even thought of such- a thing after
Stivers had beaten us? And to those of us who went to the tournament,
it seemed as though our boys could never beat those teams of giants who
towered above them and seemed so much older. The old saying, "The
bigger they are, the harder they fall," was Certainly justified, however,
the way our boys bowled over the giants.
The team started for Delaware, Thursday, March 8, and went imme-
diately to the Delta Tau Delta house, where they were entertained in a
truly royal fashion. Friday afternoon, Steele played it's Hrst game
with Hubbard, winning 64 to 4, the largest score of the tournament. Fri-
day evening, Steele defeated Grove City 42 to 12. Gallipolis was the next
opponent suffering defeat at the hands of our boys. The score was 39 to
10. Saturday afternoon came, when the boys met the Cumberland team.
This team had played together for years, and our boys looked like pig-
mies beside them. By wonderful teamwork, Steele was finally able to
beat them 41 to 19. This win narrowed the race to three teams-Steele,
Cambridge, and Piqua. It was decided that Steele should return the
following Friday to play Cambridge.
The team returned the next week. On Friday afternoon, Cambridge
was defea.ted 18 to 9. Saturday morning our boys became champions of
Southern Ohio when they defeated Piqua 26 to 15 in a very close game.
There were many Steele rooters there to help the team, which they
certainly did to the best of their ability. No one who witnessed the
Steele-Mt. Vernon game for the State championship can ever forget it.
Mr. Libecap, Mr. Eastman, Miss Judy, and others were on the verge of
a Complete collapse, the score was so close. After playing overtime,
Steele emerged as victors, the score being 27 to 24.
For Steele, no individual stars can be picked out, for itfwas their
teamwork above all other things which won the championship. It is
sufficient to say that the combination, Maltby, Reiter, Barkelew, Hayner,
and Shirer, each did his part no Steele team has ever do11e it. Coach
Bevan is responsible for this and too much credit cannot be given him for
the way in which he taught these boys to play for the team and not for
Through the efforts of this team and Coach Bevan, Steele stands
supreme in basket ball. All glory and honor to them!

Steele may well take pride in her baseball record. ln this branch of
sport, as in no other, she has successfully maintained her supremacy.
Unly 01100 in the history of Steele a11d Stivers has the city championship
been out of our possession. XVe hold it 11ow and there is every reason
to believe that we shall continue to do so.
Several men of last year's championship team are playing again this
year. Dixon captain and catcher, Hayner, first base, Maltby, short
stop, and Gerlaugh and Reiter, outfielders, are all veterans and ex-
perience they gained last year will benefit the entire team. The other
members of the team are Rodway, pitcher, Friegau, second base, Ellison
third base, and Klee, outfielder.
The games played show that ability and spirit are not lacking in the
team. In the first game, with West Alexandria, after several innings
in which no hits were made, the visiting team scored a lead of several runs.
This did not discourage the Steele team, however, illld they'soon won the
game, seven to three. In a practice game, Steele defeated the crack semi-
professional team from Wright Field, five to three.
But the most important game played so far was the first game in
the city championship series with Stivers. In this game, Stivers piled
up five runs lead in the early part of the game but tl1e Steele team came
from behind, winning the game eleven to eight. This victory make it
necessary to win but one more game in the series to retain the city
championship, and, considering the showing and spirit of the team it is
very likely that the second game will be won as handily aswas the tirst.
In all athletics Steele has been unusually successful this year. A
great deal of credit for our showings this year must go to Coach Bevan.
It is due to his efforts that the Steele teams have been what they were.
No teams in the past have ever been so well trained or better coached
and the spirit which they have shown is unusual. We hope that Mr.
Bevan will be with us next year to continue the work he has so ably
begun. A A y I T

Track is a branch of athletics which has always been popular in
Steele. Perhaps the cause of its popularity has been that we have had
track teams which were unequalled in this part of the country. Only
once has the city championship bee11 lost, and high scores have been 11121110
in interscholastic meets. This year the team has a' number of experienced
men, and is expected to repeat or excel records of former years.
I11 track, the very hardest training is required for success, and when
success is won it belongs to the individual, for the track athlete can11ot
be assisted by any one. The training which track provides is valuable in
every sport, and the school which has a good track team is usually found
to be strong in all athletics. For this reason a large number of candi-
dates are encouraged to practice, and a strong team is developed. A1-
thongh we have 11ot had a large team this year, we have several all-round
men, and all events will be contested.
Captain Murray has bee11 a high 1J0lI1i'0I' in three city meets, and
will run the dashes, as well as the high and broad jumps. Maltby in
the pole vault, hurdles, and javelin throws, has starred before. For the
jumps we have also XYallace, and for the weights Hayner, Bernard, and
Murphy, Beaver, lieiter, 1il't'llfllllg91', l+'erguson and Murphy will run
the sprints and longer distances. About these 111011 a winning team has
been developed, with the second and third places taken by new prospects.
'l'he track season has been late because of weather conditions this
year, and baseball practice has interfered also with a large number at
track practice. No duel meets have been provided, but the Miami meet
on May ll, and the Steele-Stivers-Parker meet May 16, are always closely
contested, and well attended. The Columbus State meet, and Hamilton
meet will be entered if a sufficiently good team is for111ed.
ln track, as in all other sports, we feel the effect of the coaching
of Mr. llevan. Candidates for the team have been encouraged and have
improved greatly under his tntorage. 'Phe team coached by him, if not
completely successful in scores, is certain to improve, and the members
of tl1e team will feel the effect of his experienced advice.

We all thought Kaiser Wilhelm, several years ago,
Was just a ruler eruel and harsh, wanting all to know
'Phat only he and no one else, had any right whatever,
'l'o rule this wondrous world of ours, and he'd give in? No never.
And now that dear old U. S. A. is in this fearful war.
We understand his tyranny as never dreamed before.
For even we, way over here, where there's no sign of fighting,
Hun into him where ere we go, and see his words i11 writing.
He'd tell us just what we're to do, and what we'd eat and wear.
Yes, old and young he'd treat alike-his way of playing fair.
Ile takes the eoail from out our bins, he snatehes all our iiourg
And so that we may early rise, sets eloeks ahead an hour.
'l'here's meatless days, and wheatless days, and heaitless days galore,
But those are just the little things. Ile makes us sutfer more,
By taking all our lads so brave, and sending them away,
And whether they'll eome back to us, alas, we cannot say.
Are we willing that this Kaiser's Hag in grim triumph shall wave?
Nay--the dear Star Spangled Banner, o'er our land that's free and brave.
