i A Better Position and I | A Larger Salary Did it ever occur to you that the matter of getting a better position is merely getting ready for it? To be out of employment—that is pathetic; not to be ready for employment—that is tragic. The efficient are to have good positions—the inefficient are “down and out.” Which army are || you going to join? The world is anxious for people who can do tilings particularly well, especially the business world We have many calls for thoroughly trained Bookkeepers, Stenotypists, Shorthand Writers and Accountants, and are often unable to fill them because we do not have those well enough prepared. Every young man and young woman wake up and give their surroundings a searching examination. | It will pay you to begin a course with the Miami at the || earliest possible moment. Those who have begun the study of Pitman Shorthand in High School can finish at the Miami without loss of time, by paying on the monthly basis. School is in session all summer and the courses are arranged it O so students may enter at any time.

And words are strangely hard to speak, And vanished is our laughter and our play And part we must from mem’ries that are sweet. Oh no, we are not crying; We are smiling thru our tears Just as when times are trying. We shall smile in future years. The halls seem strangely lonely, And they echo to our tread. And we realize but only That our school days here are dead. We see not what shall come to pass; Our joyless vision is not keen; We know not that each coming class Will prouder be of old fifteen. Oh we’ll bring fame to Stivers’ halls. We ghosts of yesterday; And when to each ambition calls. Our trophies at her feet we’ll lay. So here’s a toast to Stivers High, Be this our parting lay: “May Stivers’ glory reach the sky And live forever and a day.” Oh no, we are not crying; We are smiling thru our tears. Just as, when times are trying. We shall smile in future years. 49CLASS HISTORY Early one morning a host of students assembled at the entrance of the Province of Parkonia. The journey through this estate was one that could be made only by those who had had eight years of careful preparation and training in the elementary branches. In those days the estate, which consisted of an old-fashioned building situated on a small plat of ground, was left in the charge of an artist and a corps of assistants. The artist told them, as they passed straightway into the yard, that each of his assistants had a particular hobby. As they began their journey, the artist told them that, if they kept their party close together and obeyed all his rules and heeded all his suggestions, it would be possible for them to pass through this vast domain on to the other side, within a day. lie told them further that they must choose some four of his assistants and become so well acquainted with them and their hobbies, that they could pass creditably, a short quiz which they would have for them at the close of the day. The way led first into a large corridor; its spacious walls, its broad stairways, its high ceilings had a peculiar effect upon each member of the party. Each one seemed to feel that he had changed to a vivid green. It was impossible for them to detect such a change on any of the others, for it was wholly a personal illusion. After a short time the artist perceived that they felt somewhat disturbed by this phenomenon, hence he informed them that they could remove this hue only by giving him their closest attention throughout the entire day. Without further questioning they followed their guides. The party was so full of enthusiasm and their spirits so high that it seemed as though there could be nothing which this band could not accomplish. They were always eager to do everything to the best of their ability. Traveling in this wise, they passed little more than half the day. Thus far their tour had been very strenuous, for there had been no deviation from the set routine of the trip, and as a result, they longed for recreation. Some cared for games of different kinds; while others were at a loss to know how to spend their spare time. At last one of the assistants conceived the idea of presenting a pageant from the story of King Arthur and his Band of Gallant Knights. As soon as they heard this they shouted, “Agreed, Agreed.” So after a short interval, which was consumed by assigning the different roles, the production was rendered before an audience of outsiders, who commended it very highly. They closed the day by holding a picnic in a grove not far from the Parkonia. At the close of the day the party was divided into two companies, for on the morrow they were to go to the Monastery of St. Ivers and to the Academy of St. Eele. Fortunately it fell to my lot to be one of those who were chosen to go to St. Ivers. The journey through either institution was much the same, and after all they both lead to the same place. The night was spent, and the morning of the next day was come. The partv again assembled, and this time at the entrance of St. Ivers. During the night some of those that left Parkonia with them, wandered away, never to rejoin the party again. Today’s party was not the only 50f one that was being conducted through the Monastery at this time, for those who started yesterday and the day before, were ahead of it and were more accustomed to the habits of the place. The adviser through this school was Mr. Work. He also was assisted by a corps of instructors, whose duty it was to become very well acquainted with each party of tourists. The first day at St. Ivers was nearing a close. The monotony of continual investigation had been throughout the entire day and before the party disbanded for another night’s rest, they enjoyed a picnic under the green trees. And now for the third day’s journey. You see the party was no longer at the beginning, but it was making the journey of the second day at St. Ivers. The ever increasing hosts desiring to visit the Monastery made it necessary to enlarge the former building. All through the day the work continued, and by evening very little remained to he finished. The party, by this time, had become very well acquainted with the party that began the journey the day before, and to show them their appreciation of this friendship, they gave a farewell party to them. They, on the other hand, gave a picnic in return. The night passed and the day came and our party assembled for the third time at St. Ivers. Yes, a few had fallen by the wayside during the night, but those that returned, returned not to the little building to which they had come two days before, but to the completed building. They came to the main entrance of this grand edifice; ascended the wide steps of white stone: passed through the corridor of beautiful white marble; up to the second floor, on stairs of sparkling white with railing of glittering brass. In short, this temple of knowledge was nowhere to be equalled. And, oh, howr they disliked to think that they had but one more day to enjoy this building! The day, at first, passed in much the same way as those that preceded it, with the exception that toward the close they were given talks, giving advice about how to conduct themselves after this splendid opportunity had been extended to them. The party that entered the day after them, gave a farewell to them, while they were the guests of the leaving party at the last picnic they enjoyed in a body. The party that went to St. Eele did not arrive at the assembly hall until after we had been there and finished our last visit. In fact, in many instances they failed to measure up to the standards set by the party from St. Ivers. —F. H. Fassett. THE RAINBOW ’Twas the bridge of the gods To the pagans of old. ’Twas the promise of God To the Israelites bold. ’Tis the place where is hidden The pot of pure gold To the heart of each girl and each boy. ’Tis the ideal we search for Till in death we are cold And searching find sorrow and joy. •i 1 —’15.THE VEIL UPLIFTED Act 1. Scene I.: THE stage is in ticilight. Soft light gleams from unknown sources. From time to time weird noises are heard. The prophetess gazes into the crystal. A silence. There approaches the Spirit of Stivers. After a pause the Spirit speaks. Spirit: Oh, prophetess, I pray thee tell By means of this thy magic spell What deeds the crystal to you shows For you know now, what no one knows; The future clear by you is seen. What of my class of old fifteen? What do my daughters and iny sons? Well—ten years hence. When that time comes. Will they be worthy? Speak, I pray. And make the future clear as day. The prophetess (murmuring over the crystal and making strange gestures). Oh Spirit of Stivers, clear indeed is the future to me. In my crystal I see—I see the morn ten years from now. Strange events and wondrous pass before mine eyes. Yea, all your sons and daughters are w'orthv of your training. But stay; I’ll tell you more. Always a staunch supporter of democracy, I see Clark Booher, a famous single taxer. I see him writing famous hooks, and doing a noble work by furnishing thus, homes for mice and rats, and fuel for bon-fires. And Katie Berdas, wondrous to relate, is stenographer to the clerk of marriage licenses. Her white teeth are a splendid advertisement for Wrigley’s Spearmint, for Katie chews gum incessantly, the only times she has ever paused were those when her classmates came to take the fatal step. And Walter Ames, whom doubtless you remember for the depth and brilliancy of his mind is leader of the Prohibition forces in New York City, and at the last election received three votes. Behold Mildred Block! Her artistic poses are known the world over, for she is official model for the Goldberg cartoons. Associated with her is Harold Louth an, whose attitudes in “Father Was Right,” have lightened much care and sorrow throughout the country. Charles Andrews is still at Stivers. Mr. Cecil, recognizing the sterling virtues of this young man, resigned as Civics teacher and Charles now fills his place. Especially are his classes proficient in the art of debating. Anna Cain has found that Love’s all Wright and is performing a great service to the world by having a wear-ever smile. William Bader and Jacob Brusk, wishing to do the unusual. took a course in clock-winding, followed by post-graduate research in this subject. They arc now the official clock-winders of the city, and Davton is noted for her splendid times. Dorothy Butler, whose cooking all will remember, is fulfilling her destiny by serving as chief pancake turner at a cpiick lunch counter on Third Street. Walter Grenell is attaining great success as a Doctor in Tennessee. He has at present a large number of patients who are soothed and quieted by the beautifullullabies his wife sings to them. Yes. Bernice Francis is following her musical career in this manner, and who is there to say she is not happy? The prophetess pauses anti sighs. The Spirit: Oh more 1 ask you. Pray unfold The destinies which Fate's unrolled. For others in this class of classes. These loyal lads and lovely lasses. The Prophetess: IVext there comes before my eyes sweet Helen Chase. Her influence at Cornell, where she went shortly after leaving school, has added much to the reputation of that school, for her husband says she is the source of all his inspirations. Who has forgotten Glenn Bayless, and his little black case? He still carries it, for he is also an M. I)., and his possession of a medicine ease proved a great factor in the choosing of his life work. John Guminer is adding great credit to Stivers. At a recent election he wras made ice-President of the Hobos Economical Union, in which position he is highly efficient. Ada Clyde, disappointed in an early love affair, is still enjoying single bliss, and, though, her hair is sprinkled with gray, she has found a most lucrative position playing the Steam Caliope for Ringling Brothers. Heede Hardeman, a famous artist and creator of the Stivers Girl, has been appointed to the staff of the Centennial Gazette, where he is required to draw but one picture a year. Bussell Harn has become a detective. His hairbreadth escapes and thrilling adventures will shortly appear in a volume entitled, “Russell, the Dare Devil Sleuth," or “One Foot in the Grave.” Marguerite Kissinger, after teaching I rig. at Stivers for a year, visited Europe, w here she met a brilliant young Lord w ho w as dazzled by her radiant beauty. A most magnificent wedding ensued, attended by the King and Queen and the most famous nobles of Europe. Jesse Hartman. 1 grieve to state, is in a sad way. Through no fault of his own. in attempting to found a home for stray cats, he lost all his money and is now so financially distressed that he can eat but one meal a day. Robert Flartzell has become an author. His latest contribution to literature is entitled, “A Criticism of, and an Inquiry Into, the ay Teachers Teach High School.” Marie Lebert is now a Latin teacher. Her great dignity has added to the impressiveness of her teaching, and all of the pupils under her care have become most proficient. Because of her rare ability she has been able to impart to all a great love for Latin. State Senator Bvron Hastings is an ardent advocate of the hill before the legislature for the destruction of fish worms. He argues that if there were no fish worms there would be no fishing; therefore, much less time wasted. Dorothy Rowe’s great love for children has been recognized by the authorities of the Masonic Home in Philadelphia, where she lias been installed as matron. Her splendid executive ability and her motherly heart have quite won her a place in the affections of the children and people of Philadelphia. Esther Frost’s cheerful disposition and genial smile have made her delicatessen store the rendezvous of all Dayton, and her dainty viands are welcomed at many well-appointed tables. John lleier has overcome his hash fulness and has opened a dancing pavilion.Here Professor Heier teaches everything from the waltz circle to the argentine, tango and the trigonometry twist. Elsie Kerr is as short and joll v as ever and is proving an unquallified success as agent for Grandpa’s Wonder Soap. Charlotte Zellar did what we might have expected from one of her quiet ways and gentle dignity. She married a minister. Their honeymoon was spent on their way to South Africa, where they were sent as missionaries. The prophetess pauses again. The Spirit is also silent musing over the past. At length the Spirit speaks. Spirit: Yea, even more I feign would learn Of honor that my flock will earn. A goodly bunch they seem to be. If 1 can trust your prophecy. The Prophetess: Louis Kirck is still adding glory to the name he gained at Stivers. As backstop for the Vets he is cheered enthusiastically by the fans whenever he makes his appearance. Marie Lockwood has migrated to Xenia, where she is teaching the third grade children that 4X6=28. Earl Leen, who disliked Physics so when he was in high school, has replaced Mr. Foerste at Steele and is making the subject as clear us mud to his many pupils. True to the truth uttered so often in Senior English, Homer Leonard recollects that his days in Miss Ryder’s class were days of great joy. He is now a highly successful grocery keeper and has gone into partnership with his father. Ruth Toland married very young, and after a year of supreme bliss, was left a widow, and through her lonely hours has found her chief consolation in gems of poetry. Ralph Barney, at an early age, manifested marked vocal ability; hut through unwise use he lost his voice for some years. Just recently England has discovered in our old classmate a singer of rare ability. Tyler Kern is still at college. He is taking a special course, consisting of subjects that he does not have time to prepare. Russell Smith has accomplished a wonderful feat. He has looked a hole through his shoes. Lately he was seen going around barefoot. Etbel Dbein, after many years of faithful service as stenographer at a prominent bank in Miamisburg, married the president of the bank and is now a very much esteemed lady of that city. 'The seer finds it impossible to continue. The Spirit: W onderful things you’ve told to me And ever grateful 1 shall he. But could you tell a little more Of what the future holds in store? The Prophetess: Roy Smith, being sorely smitten during high school days by the charms of Ruth Toland, has never married. After spending a number of years in mathematical research he has just completed an elaborate treatise, entitled, “A Simplification of Trigonometry.” Mildred Rotlihaar, who did noble service in advancing the cause of Woman Suffrage, and was largely instrumental in securing it. is now Vice-President of the United States. She is also noted throughout the country for her 54 unusual collection of dogs, among them a magnificent St. Bernard. Jesse Leaser has entered the profession most suited to his loquacious ability. He is a Senator, and is noted for the ease in which he can convince himself that both sides of a question are right. The world watches with breathless interest the movements of the Russian government concerning Barbara Webb. Because of certain most influential socialistic literature which has been circulated in that country, and of which she is the editor, the government has deemed it necessary to take coercive measures against possible rebellions. She is now in prison awaiting trial. The “Ford” has become the machine of the day, and this company has absorbed all other automobile establishments. The reason for this is a marvelous invention by Wilbur Cotterman. This device makes it possible to speed far beyond the legal limit and to elude completely the watchful eyes of the policeman. The glory of Schumann Heink is far eclipsed by the present operatic star, Freda Wollenhaupt, whose voice has developed into one of great power and exquisite beauty. “A Home for the Merry” is the alluring title of the home kept by Helen Siden-stricker. Naomi Marshall, who melodiously warbles the latest popular songs at Kirby’s, and Louise Weitzel, who has preserved her good looks and sweet disposition through the care of the children in her private nursery, are numbered among the inmates of this abode. Francis Fas-sett has lived up to all that was expected of him. He is the city manager of Xenia and his rule of that distinguished city is unquestionably a good one. Leon Office is the dog catcher in the City of Xenia. He found the civil service examination for this position extremely hard, as the examiners failed to see the beauty of the quotations from The Golden Treasury, which he wrote whenever he found a question which he could not answer. Ethel Magazener is a saleslady at Elder’s. So convincing is her talk that she recently sold ten yards of bright red silk to an auburnhaired woman. John Morris is bent on revising the dictionary and including therein all of his pet slang phrases. Thomas Rhoem is Connie Mack the second. His speed is wonderful and his success may he estimated by the fact that a new brand of cornflakes is named for him. Earl Schiewetz is also following baseball, but as yet has only succeeded in becoming Thomas Rhoem’s water boy. It is rumored that he receives a salary of five cents a week. Ruth Conant has delved deep into the mysteries of playing on a comb. She has given several private demonstrations of her proficiency in this art, and some claim that she is able to play Home, Sweet Home, without her music. Glenna Stiver has become one of the most famous instructors in music in America. She is also a composer of great note. Mary Farley has recently completed a work of twenty-five volumes, entitled “A History of America.” This work has proved most helpful to Stivers pupils, for Miss Farley in the goodness of her heart has omitted all the dates and names of places that have been so odious to the students of all times. Among the most popular ragtime writers of the 20th century is Jeannette Friedman. Copies of her songs are being sold in Asia and Africa as wrell as in America. Max Gradskv has developed into a grand opera star. His victrolarecords are played on the victrola in the Stivers auditorium. Irvin Green-wald is a chauffeur and a cautious one. He never appears in police court for speeding more than twice a week. Clifford Tinnerman is an usher in a moving picture theater. He expects soon to become a motion picture critic, as he has seen practically all of the three-reel specials produced. Katherine Turner is the wife of an automobile manufacturer. She is thinking seriously of giving one of the machines her husband manufactures to Stivers to aid slow pupils in raeching the building by 8:30. After Julia Coblentz graduated from high school, she began to realize more perfectly the value of a good education to a girl and entered Normal. We find her now a very successful teacher, happy and contented in her work. Helen Chaney, with her ambition and natural talents, has won for herself the prominent position of President of Wellesly. Herman Duerr is chief traffic policeman at Ebenezer. His courtesy in helping old ladies across the street has won him much fame, and it is thought that he will soon be promoted to Harshmanville. Roy McKnight is now the engineer at Stivers. He glories in this occupation because he isn't required to have a clean face. Rita Higgins and Cora Caldwrell have a cozy little studio together. Cora paints and Rita sings, and many have enjoyed the perfect hospitality of this contented pair. Elsie Haag has a large dressmaking establishment and each year helps the Stivers graduates to choose appropriate gowns. Ina Rupel is doing worthy deeds in Cuba, teaching the natives English, “as she is spoke.” Earl Re-quarth, most fluent in describing the beauties of Burke and Thackeray, is now an English instructor at Parker. Angeline Lunz has become the leading woman aeronaut in the world. Her daring deeds make thousands hold their breath. Again the the prophetess pauses and gazes anxiously into the erys- tul. The Spirit Speaks: Eager am T to hear vet more Concerning those who’ve gone from my door. The Prophetess: Again I see these, your children. Bernard Malt- hv has caused ardent enthusiasm to spring up among the present seniors of Stivers, for he has completed a treatise, entitled, “Notes and Helps on Burke’s Speech. ' I bis most excellent book has been accepted by the Board of Education with great enthusiasm. Rowland Foerste, through his knowledge of Spanish, has been appointed ambassador to Cuba. Here he looks after the interests of our country in a truly splendid way. Cora Sellars is generally conceded to he the best swimmer in this part of the country, and especially is this ability shown in her diving. She is at present the swimming teacher at the Y. W. C. A. Bernard Moehlman is now a demonstrator of the Star Player Piano in Cleveland. Here he grinds out the tunes just as he used to do in Stivers. The quiet reserved nature of Alma Dorst has won her quite a place in the heart of a wealthy old lady, in Cincinnati, to whom she acts as companion. The irrepressible Helen Craig did as was always expected of her. the unusual, and eloped with a young man whose debonair manner and lavish use of borrowed money led her to think that her future happiness was assured. But she soon learned that ‘"all is not gold that glitters,” and e'er long her friends were not surprised to hear of her divorce. The foreteller of the future wanders about the room seeking inspiration. The spirit speaks imploringly. The Spirit: Oh, I pray you, do not cease! See, I beg on bended knees. Won’t you speak And tell tbe rest I've come to seek? The Prophetess: Although Arthur Stock was much afraid of the water at Stivers, he overcame this fear and is now engaged in the profession of teaching the elephants to swim, for the Hag-enback and W allace Shows. Arthur Gurklies has become renowned for his composition of the new national hymn, “Uncle Sam’s Domain.” The sturdy form of Marvin Cornelius may be seen at the corner of Main and Third Streets (except when you are greatly in need of him i with his police club and whistle. Harry Wertz’s love for physical science has finally enabled him to take charge of the weather bureau in Washington. Fred Kneislev, Walter Gerdes, Harold Kroemer. and Henry Stang were so inspired by the shining examples constantly kept before them in Stivers that they determined to accomplish something that would be of lasting benefit to the human raee.

CURTAIN WILL AND TESTAMENT To "Class 1916,' ice are likely to he commishioned as Seniors soonly. Dear Sir: Quite recently of yore 1 were in corners with Hon. Clark Booher, Jefferson Pres, of Senior’s Class. He observe which superior expression peculiar to democratic officers, that faculty teachers Juniors not graduating are sorrow about the heart; for 1915's Class have things which fore said do want covetly. "Tell me the entire list,'" I snuggest. "Firstly, from what I hearsay,” explain Clark, “Mr. Meek are ancious to know if Juniors will have interviews resembling Seniors.” “Hon. Exutive, ' I otter peevly. “My time is entirely occupied with trig. poetry written by Mr. Worthwords, let us elope to motion picture drama; for trig, and Hon. Worthwords’ life are to be acted on motion serene.” “How pitiful it are,” he narrate. “J. C. Boldt and Miss Ryder is not mindful of acting of emotional pictures in these theatrical buildings” “What a Saving! For price 10c, you see all Worthwords’ life and learn trig, in 45 min.,” is next from me. As Hon. Clark and me encroach Movies Palace, I ask to know more for losses of educated Seniors. “The Gen. Trouble is who are to get 107S worth of adds for Stylus in the next future year,’ he saunter while feeling entirely blued. “Miss McKinney!” is bright report by me. “What shall our Civics Prof, do with our thoughtful disinterested discussions on Political governments?” he answer. 62 “Herr Cecil shall learn 3rd year Juniors to debate like we!" I holla. “I conclude from what you say, that your head is full of brainful thoughts.” He snagger with statistics. Hon. Senior Boring which is spanish-french Teacher ask it, ‘Will Junior do work as future Class of 2 yrs. ago do?” I decline school-masterfully. “Honored 3rd. yearers are one year older of young Sophomores, so will do work as I class of yore has,” Clark snub, looking like F. Fassett. “Hon. Girls ov Seniors are different of all other years and times,” I rake off. “How so?” he ask it. “How so!” I repeat with Y. M. C. A. elbows, “Artistic Senior faculty, Miss Shower, have changed fore said girls, to be entirely differed. They (girls) do go without for 22 hrs. and 25 min. any studying hall instructors.” “This is selfish government,” decrop Clark, making whistling noises. “M iss Freuline Pagenstcker,” I pronounce distinctually, “would be entirely pleased with birdseye view of Rismark, N. D. I handsomely taken) which are named after most famous person in said state excempt Devil Lake.” “Quite thoughtish to give Hon. urban portrate picture but 1st must be motioned and 2nd, and then it must be voted on by entire Senior franchise,” he obligate. “So much intellect Hon. Pro. Tern, is subdued brilliance.” I require with Kroemer defiance. “Miss Mackie will have many a great number of acknowledged good looking co-workers who will graduate with Seniors, what w ill do in future,” Clark said it, with bluish gastly expression. “Are not Juniors Handsom assistants?” I ask it. “Alas, you said it, but it is not a truth," he snagger. “There are 3 more noted feminisms to be commended on (1) Miss Horrel who teach English as she are spoke. From hearsay, I am beleav-ing she would want all Burke Speech line-outs to compare with those Hon. Juniors will copy next annum. (2) Miss Odlin, who is our own Phvsister, I think from observation wrould enjoy a sparkless, fuse or one which is granted against punctures and blow outs. 131 Miss Nuttall who are skillful to the uttermost degree with a typewriter does; I am shure she w'ants mentioned mechanism that when wrong key is touched a little bell rings so all Seniors wdll be able to print off letters, with eyes blind-folded I by touch system)” I consume with uppish elbows. “That Hon. Dexter-Lumby combine, have in past present yrs. been presented with pencil shavings and iron filing, etc........will entirely robs our owne class of lowly privelege,” he collappse. As we enter movies picture Palace I look at great works of Art, before Entrance. I feel insignificant under such great picture Gallery. Hoping you are the same. Yours truly. 63 —Hashimura Togo.

Our Szr 64Extracts From the Diary of a Junior Tuesday Evening, Sept. 3, 1912—My, what a day this has been! 1 surely am glad it is over. Such a crowd of boys and girls I never saw in iny life, started in Parker today. And such confusion and excitement! I suppose we did do a great many foolish things, but thank goodness we were all “Freshies,” no Juniors or Seniors around to laugh at us. Finally we were settled—much to our relief— and n » we left at noon very much impressed with our first day in High School. October 9, 1912—We are progressing wonderfully! Parker is surely some school, and we are enjoying ourselves immensely Oh—of course we are studying. I wouldn’t overlook one important thing like that for the world, but then there are many other things to interest us. November 8, 1912—Just now we are having a delightful vacation. Oh. of course, I know I oughtn’t to say delightful, but then I just can't help it. There is a diphtheria epidemic in Dayton now, and all the schools are closed, thus giving us a holiday. Of course, we feel sorry for those who are ill, but still we can’t help enjoying our vacation just the same. January 7, 1913—Well, the Christmas vacation is over and we are back at school working just as hard as we can After that vacation of th ree weeks was over we had to make up for lost time, so now we never lose a minute’s time. (That’s true, too—unusual as it may seem). April 8, 1913—In the midst of another vacation. A pretty long one, too. It seems that this is all this year is made of—vacations—and we are certainly getting tired of them. How I wish we were back at school, even if we do have to study! June 4, 1913—June time and also a time when we all feel lazy. Soon school will be out and we shall be free for the summer—Hurrah! June 20, 1913—School is out! In one way I’m glad, and in another way I’m sorry. Queer, isn’t it? Parker is a dandy school, and I am sure we all hate to leave it, but, then—think of being a Sophomore at Stivers! Monday, Sept. 1, 1913—School begins tomorrow. Oh, Stivers! Stivers!! What shall we do if you don’t come up to our expectations? Tuesday, Eve., Sept. 2, 1913—Our first day at Stivers is over. We were all just as eager as could be to start, but then we were just a little scared, and a trifle awed, perhaps, at meeting the Juniors and Seniors. And then the school is so different from Parker, that it will take us quite a while to become accustomed to it; but after we are all settled I am sure we shall be glad that we are only “little Sophomores”—with three years in Stivers ahead of us. Nov. 22, 1913—We beat Steele today! Isn't that great? We Sophomores were out to the game in full force, cheering and rooting for Stivers at the top of our voices. According to my notion, Sophomores always do take more interest in such things than the Juniors f 7or Seniors. Why, without the Sophomores athletics would he a farce. January IB. 1914—Basketball is now the rage. Last night Stivers heat Springfield 39 to 16, the first time in three years. 1 only hope we shall beat Steele just as bad. May 19. 1914—Only two more months of school. Where has this year gone? With football games, basketball games and everything, this year has slipped away before we realized it. June 12, 1914— The last day of school. We had our picnic today at Overlook Park, where we had great fun. Well, 1 wonder if next year at Stivers will be as happy as this year? Here’s hoping it will be. Sat. Eve.. Sept. 5, 1914—Two more days and we shall be going back to dear old Stivers. I was over to school this afternoon, and went through the building. I never saw such a magnificent school, up-to-date in everv respect. If we aren’t contented in that building, th ere is something wrong with us. Sept. 16, 1914—Back at school, and working like troopers. Goodness, but it is good to be a Junior. Oh, it’s all right to be a Sophomore, but then it’s better to be a Junior. How much bigger we feel, and how much more dignified! And how glad we are that we have two years to spend in the new building. It is going to be rather difficult, I suppose, to get accustomed to the size of the building, but like everything, we shall get used to it and soon feel perfectly at home. Nov. 21, 1914—Sad news; Steele beat us in football today, 9 to 7. Oh, wrell, it just couldn’t be helped, so what’s the use of crying over spilled milk? Jan. 22, 1915—Steele-Stivers basketball game. What’s the use of asking who won Everybody knows—we did. Juniors out in full force. March 26, 1915—The Junior class was organized today by electing the following officers: President ................................. Ralph Randall Vice-President ........................... Thelma Wildasin Secretary .............................Dorothy Kalbfleisch Treasurer Harry Manley April 2, 1915—Spring vacation week, and such glorious weather for a vacation. It is just great for skating, and everybody is certainly taking advantage of it. Everybody’s skating now'. May 1, 1915—Only six more weeks of school. How' quickly this year has gone. Only one more year of high school. Next year we shall be Seniors, and we intend to make the year the happiest, jolliest and best of all. In Memoriam fr 4Ncis McConnell 1898-1915 68 Idling It was the good ship Stivers High That sailed upon Life's changing sea. Her sails were spread, all spirits high A gallant creiv, and brave had she. Her port shorn’ far, a distant star Her goal—ideals attained. And every year that she had sailed New laurels she had gained. CHORUS— lleigho— heigho—Stivers High. Heave ho, lads, with a joyful cry; Good luck, good luck. Stivers High, Sail on. Stivers High. But lo. a change comes o'er the sea; The storm king's banner far is flung; The pilot starts, “Ahoy,” cries he, Another victory must be won.” Then every lad springs to his place; The lasses cheer them on, And though great storms come on apace. They staunchly sing this song. CHORUS— Each year the good ship touches port And sets ashore an eager crew. Come battles noiv of every sort To Stiver's teachings ice’ll be true. Each eye is trained, trained is each hand; Life's lessons we'll learn well. And in our hearts on sea or land These words shall ever dwell. 69 History of the Sophomore Class Parker High School! Yes, we were now a hard working body of students. There were no Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors to taunt us with the name “Freshie.” We had our own athletics, our own school paper, our own literary societies, so were thus well-fitted to compete with anv high school, however large. The time came only too quickly when we should have to leave Parker and enter into a broader field of study. But where were we to continue our high school career? The majority chose Stivers, but why? Because there were better and greater opportunities presented to us here, not only along the lines of mental culture, but also of physical culture. This physical development is necessary, because without it mental development is impaired. After having so wisely chosen Stivers as the place in which to continue our course of study, we had the honor of being the first class to enter it as “Greater Stivers." It is true that Stivers seemed somewhat of a labyrinth to us at first, but we soon became accustomed to its many stairways and long corridors with the help of both the seniors and teachers. We have contributed our share to athletics, social work and the improvement work of the school in general. On all the teams the sophomores were well represented and helped Stivers win many victories. Likewise wre have mingled in the societies and are enthusiastic members. We have eagerly joind in making Stivers a better and greater school than it had been heretofore. By entering into our school work and social work with enthusiasm, we have made this year the happiest school year of our lives. We sigh when we think we have only two short years to spend in ‘Dear Old Stivers," but we hope when T7 leaves the school, it will have reflected honor upon the fair name of its Alma Mater. —Amelia Diamond, 17.

October 2, 1914. Thirty-five enthusiastic students responded to the Principal’s call for charter members. Today the membership numbers fifty, and every member is eager and enthusiastic. The Dramatic Art Society has been one of the most public spirited of the High School organizations. Early in November a play was presented to the student body in assembly, “How the Vote Was Won.” Later in the year a play of an entirely different type, “The Land of Heart’s Desire,” was given for the pleasure of all who cared to attend. During “Open House” week their presentation of “The Burglar” drew large crowds, and created much favorable comment; as a climax to their year’s activities came their performance of “Two Strings to His Bow.” Long hours were spent in rehearsing, much time in planning the musical program, and finally, on March 14th, they presented the result of their efforts to the public. For the first time in the history of Stivers a pay performance was given and one of her newest organizations stood sponsor. The major part of the proceeds went to the piano fund, to pay for that which is enjoyed by the entire school, our new Baldwin Grand. Work of this sort must he continued. The Dramatic Art Society is of practical benefit to its members. Through its affiliation with the National Drama League the organization keeps in touch with the best of the modern plays and playwrights. To all who wish a larger knowledge of good drama, a chance for the development of dramatic ability, and the joy that comes from co-operating with fellow students, the Dramatic Art Society holds forth golden opportunities.THE STIVERS ORCHESTRA The Stivers orchestra of the past year has been a brilliant success in everv respect. A lively interest, together with a spirit of hard work, was manifest at each rehearsal. This, in combination with the masterful direction of its conductor, Mr. Tebhs, served to make it the great success it was. The organization will lose a number of its best and most faithful members by graduation, but it is hoped that from next year’s student body it will receive a sufficient number of players to carry on the good work even better than it was done this year. A complete set of musical albums was donated to the school by the orchestra as a foundation for a musical library, to which additions are expected to he made from time to time in the future. Every two weeks the orchestras of Steele and Stivers met in mass rehearsal, assembling alternately at the two schools. As this was a new departure, it was attempted with some degree of hesitation, but it was soon seen that the idea was unsurpassed by any former orchestral activities. The main feature of these rehearsals was their large and varied instrumentation. This consisted of piano, first violins, second violins, ’cellos, cornets, trombone, flutes, clarionets, tympani or kettle drums, bass drum, snare drum and traps. The aim of the orchestra was two-fold. First, to give the individual training, and second, to be a useful organization to the school in general. It laudably fulfilled both of its purposes. Good standard music was alone played, thus acquainting the members with the best selection of the musical world. Orchestral discipline, which is one of the main essentials of a well-trained orchestra, was highly emphasized. We here with to acknowledge the praiseworthy efforts of Mr. Tehbs in this respect. The combined orchestra came into prominence at the time of the spring festival in which it took part by accompanying the high school chorus and the soloists of that particular evening. It also assisted the chorus at its rehearsals previous to the concert. Through the courtesy of the Civic Music League the entire orchestra w’as given seats to the concert, given by Mr. Fritz Kreisler, at Memorial Hall on February the tenth. The evening was a most delightful one, and the great violinist will long he remembered by all who heard him. Though the past year has been so successful it must he regarded as a stepping stone to greater things in the future. We do not feel that with the firm foundation already established, and with the feeling for an organization in which the musical talent of the school may be exercised, that in the future the Stivers orchestra can fail to become a fa more potent factor in the welfare and development of both the school in general and of its members than it has been in the past. 77THE CIRCLE Last October a number of Senior girls, believing that they would be greatly benefitted by a society wherein they could learn to appreciate art more fully in its various phases, expressed their desire to Miss Schauer. A meeting was held with this idea in mind and an Art club was organized, which lias since proved of great value to the school. I be following officers were elected from among the charter members: President ....... Vice-President Secretary....... Treasurer ....... Editor .......... Sergeant-at-Arms ... Luci lie Miller ... Edna Hockey Katherine Turner ... Ethel Dhein ... Katie Berdas ...... Ethel Dill These officers were expected to serve for the first semester only, hut they proved so worthy and so aluahle to the life ot the society that they were unanimously elected to serve for the remainder of the year. The constitution of this club states that it was organized to develop a feeling of mutual responsibility and high regard for the art standing of Greater Stivers; and to bring its members subjects that are of special interest and importance along all art lines. It does not recpiire any special talent in art work to he eligible for membership—it is not a sketch club or water color guild. The members are merely expected to he enthusiastic about art in general, whether it applies to architecture, painting, craft work, sewing, or art history. 1 he high standing and enthusiasm that exist in this society are due to the fact that the name committee selects only those girls who are good students ami who are willing to foster the spirit of unity and loyalty to dear old Stivers High. Great interest has been manifested in the meetings, which are held semi-monthly. This interest is due partly to the fact that such varied programs have been rendered. A study was made of the Boston Public Library—its architecture and its mural decorations; the lives and works of some of the old masters have been discussed; at Christmas time an informal tea was given and the possibilities of hand-made gifts w'ere looked into w ith much enthusiasm. second social gathering was held in March, when Miss Annie Campbell of Steele talked informally on “Whistler and His Peacock Room.” This proved a most valuable meeting in every wav. The Circle intends to he a medium by which the social standard of the school may he made and kept high. With this idea in mind, the prevailing spirit of hearty co-operation ami good fellowship prompted the thirty-five members to give a Spring dance. I his party proved a success in every detail, and will long he remembered by those who were fortunate enough to attend. —Mario Lockwood.ALPHA Esse quam videri, “To be rather than to seem,” is the motto, which was adopted when Alpha Literary Society was organized at the Ruskin building in 1906. In those days Stivers was known by the temporary name of East High School, and in size and experience was like a little unnamed child. There were no organizations of any kind until Alpha was formed, which was quickly followed by three other literary societies and three clubs created for various purposes. Alpha came into being as the result of a feeling on the part of a group of girls that the school life must he vitalized by the existence of a democratic organization, designed to develop both the individuality of its members and the power to do team work. Alpha is primarily a literary society and this end is accomplished by the training in composition and public speaking, carried out with the idea of an obligation to the society to make the productions of as high an order as possible. The meetings combine the business and the literary types and are hebl once in two weeks with extra called meetings, when the president thinks it necessary. Fine lessons in Parliamentary law are learned at these meetings and self-government promoted to a great extent. These bi-weekly programs have consisted of papers, declamations, impromptus and debates, on literary men and musicians and their works, renowned women and their work, and questions of the day of both world-wide and local interest. It has always been the steadfast desire of the members of Alpha to maintain the established standard of excellent work, and this year has not fallen short of other years in merit. For the first semester the programs were principally on the lives and works of literary men. The programs of the last half have been devoted to the study of questions of civic interest, with a view toward making the girls better acquainted with their own city and toward making better citizens of them. This subject has been especially delightful, because on several occasions heads of the departments of our city have given excellent talks on their work and its benefits to the community. Ur. Light, of the Health Department, spoke to members of Alpha and of the Cooking classes on the work of sanitation in Dayton, and Dr. Lefkowitz gave a very good talk to all the girls of the school on playground wrork. But do not think Alpha so dull as to be all work and no play, for several social functions have been enjoyed under its auspices this year. To open the season was the jolly Hallowe’en party for the initiation and reception of new members. In March one of the prettiest dances of the season wras given by Alpha, and at present plans are under way for a picnic. In both its work and its play Alpha wishes to maintain a wholehearted spirit of co-operation with the great school to which it belongs, and thus to be a real element in promoting the interests of Stivers. 8182O L Y M P PA N Williin the confines of the ohl Henry Street School, a hare hand-full of students gathered in the fall of 1906. A new High School had been founded in Dayton. The students, though few in number, were strong in enthusiasm. Only a short time elapsed, however, before there was manifested the need of a literary society for the young men of the school. The movement rapidly gathered momentum and, under the direction of Mr. Boldt and Mr. Sayres, a group of earnest students founded a society which has now grown to a place far beyond the expectations of the Founders, and which is daily adding credit to the fame of Stivers. Goaded by the determination to spread the fame of East High, the society, shortly after being organized, founded the Stylus. This paper has been an unqualified success, and has proved to be one of the greatest factors in bringing a reputation to the school. Enrolled in a number of the leading universities and colleges of this country are former members of the Olympian, who are winning honor for themselves and their Alma Mater by their meritorious work. To enumerate the accomplishments of each Olympian Alumnus who is making good, will he impossible in this brief article, but it will be sufficient to say that many are winning honors in college. Some are teaching in prominent colleges and many others are successfully engaged in business. The societv, in 1913, adopted this motto from the Aeneid: “Pos- sunt. quia posse videntur," which means, ‘‘They are able who appear to he able.” Spurred onward by the meaning of this noble motto, the men of the society have endeavored “to seem to he able." This noble sentiment is the source of much inspiration to the society. The Olympian has given informal dances from time to time, in addition to other social functions, all of which have proved most successful and enjoyable. Bound to the Olympian by the strongest ties of friendship, is the Alumni Association, which is a product of recent origin, being organized in the vear one thousand nine hundred thirteen, at the Bcckel Hotel, and the second meeting was held at Stivers High School, both of which have proved most successful. From a literary standpoint, the present year has been a most interesting and profitable one, for many splendid programs have been rendered. Just now much interest is centering about the open meeting to be given in June, and the Olympian graduates will help to spread the name of Stivers by way of creditable accomplishments in the future.

Colors Blue and Gold Vega is enjoying one of its most successful years from every standpoint. Founded while the school was still in its infancy, it has continued to grow year by vear and has shed its influence until it has become one of the most potent factors of the school. Its motto, “Summo Nitamur, “Let us strive for the highest,” has from the beginning been the ideal which the girls have always cherished in thought and action. While Stivers was passing through the ordeal of organization in its first days, this society early found a place of service anti never lost an opportunity of rendering its support and aid to the Principal and his teachers. This spirit of co-operation has grown more intense with each passing year, until now no more loyal group of girls can be found in Stivers. Vega has always tried to keep in mind the thought that essentially it exists for the purpose of promoting literary culture and so has for the most part devoted its energy to the study of authors and their works. The present semester’s programs have dealt w ith American writers, with now and then a program concerning matters of civic importance. One must not get the impression, however, that the V ega girls believe in all work, for they have entered into the social life of the school with great vigor. From time to time delightful parties have been given, to which their friends and members of the faculty have been invited. It is the custom to welcome new Vega girls by a reception, held early in the year so that all become acquainted and work well together. Vega is justly proud of her alumnae who are occupying positions of worth in our best institutions of learning, in business life and in the home. The officers who are responsible for the present semester’s success are: President________ Vice-President Secretary _______ Treasurer________ Critic----------- Editor----------- Sergeant-at-Arms Adviser---------- ___Ruth Conant _ Esther Schmidt ___Helen Kipp _ Myra McKnight Martha Toland Miriam Herrman __Marian Hiester _ M iss McKinney Jeffersonian Literary Society “Stamus magni nominis umbra.'' The Jeffersonian Literary Society of Stivers was founded November, nineteen hundred thirteen. Up to this time there had been but one boys’ literary society, but the student body was becoming so large that a strong desire was manifested among the hoys for another society. Accordingly some of the more enthusiastic boosters got together, drafted a constitution and by-laws and named the society the “Jeffersonian,” after the great American stateman. The first year the meetings were held at Bomberger every fortnight. Here many interesting and instructive programs were rendered. But the part of each meeting which was probably the best enjoyed was the business session preceding every program. All the members without exception entered into the lively, but none the less friendly discussion and debates. Feeling that no literary society is complete without its occasional diversion, the members enjoyed a dance and picnic during this, their first year. Although the society lost heavily by graduation last year, there was a sufficient number left to form a nucleus for the present society. This year the programs have been arranged more systematically than they were last year. It has been the aim of the program committee to take up, during the present year, the lives of most of the great American authors, together with topics of general interest. This plan has been most efficiently carried out. Just recently the society inserted a clause in the Constitution whereby all applicants for membership must present a short essay on any general subject to be read before the society at the time the application is presented. This clause puts the society on a firmer literary basis. While the society has been thus successfully executing its programs, it has also some other achievements to its credit: the High School Directory, published at the beginning of the second semester, and the party dance given during the holidays in the school gymnasium. Our motto, “Stamus magni nominis umbra,” “We stand in the shadow of a great name,” was chosen, that it might inspire the members with a spirit of democracy, and with all that the illustrious name of Jefferson signifies.

The result was the organization in December of the Girls' Delphian Literary Society. A constitution was formed, officers were elected, and the year’s program arranged by the charter members. It was decided that the European nations, with the exception of Great Britain, should he studied in regard to their literature, art and culture, together with the current events of our own country. Though the struggle for success has been arduous, interest and enthusiasm have remained unabated. The limit of membership has been reached, and Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores are almost equally represented. The success has been due to several factors: the officers have been diligent and enthusiastic; each one has been faithful in bearing her part of the program; the members have endeavored to live up to their motto—“Let us follow and he guided by higher things.” Two events have especially marked the short life of the Delphian; the first was a social affair held in the gymnasium in March, and the other was the play, “Aunt Maggie’s Will,” presented at the noon hour during a week in April. As this school vear closes the members can truly feel that they are leaving a heritage of a new, well-organized society with noble aims.

The first meeting, held January 7, 1915, was well attended, about thirty enthusiastic boys being present. Mr. Boldt, the adviser, appointed several committees at this meeting. While the attendance at the second meeting was not quite as large as at the first one, those who were present were still as enthusiastic as ever and have been instrumental in placing the society on its present literary plane. At this second meeting a Constitution was adopted and a report of the name committee was heard. But as there was considerable disagreement on the name to he chosen, this matter was laid on the table until the following meeting. At the third meeting, held February 4, the name “Lanier”' was chosen in honor of Sidney Lanier, our famous southern poet. At this meeting the following officers were chosen: President .................................... Robert Hartzell Vice-President ................................ Harold Louthan Secretary" ................................... Kenneth Morrow Treasurer ....................................... Howard Finley Since literary activity is the main purpose of the society the programs for the entire year have consisted of biographies and the work of authors and interesting book reviews. The first program consisted of a study of the life and best known poems of Lanier. While the society has thus been successfully executing its programs, the members enjoyed a social as well as an instructive diversion in the form of a trip to the Delco. This is only one of a number of trips which the society has planned, not only for this year, but also for next. At present plans are being laid for a picnic to be held near the close of this year. Thus, although this society is the youngest literary society at Stivers, it has accomplished a great deal, and is paving the way for a successful career next year. —Harold Louthan. 91DER DEUTSCHE VEREINDER DEUTSCHE VEREIN When Stivers was known as the East High School, the German Club was organized by Miss Pagenstecher. The school at that time had among its enrollment only Freshmen and Sophomore pupils. There were ninety-six pupils studying German. Thirty of these joined the Club when it was organized on the twenty-fourth of September, 1906. The first President was Theresa Schneider, now a teacher of German in the Weaver School. Its first Secretary was Carl Hcclit, now assistant pastor in the St. Luke German Evangelical Church of our city. In its infancy and during these ten years of its existence, the aim of the Society has ever been to promote an interest in the German language, in German culture and literature. To aid in obtaining this result all programs are carried out in German. Each year several comedies are presented. Social meetings are frequently held, and Christmas is always celebrated in true German fashion. Birthdays of great authors and statesmen are celebrated and the Club attends the German theatre in a body The present year has been one of unusual activity and interest. The enrollment this year is seventy-five. The officers are the following: President ..... Vice-President Secretary ..... Adviser ....... ...... Esther Schmidt .........Esther Heclit Marguerite Brueshaber .... Miss Pagenstecher 9394TECHNICAL SOCIETY A long felt need in Stivers lias at last been met in the Technical Club which was recently organized by a group of enthusiastic young men. The club has grown out of the deep interest aroused in the problems of the manual training department. The object of the society is to promote an interest and knowledge in the mechanical arts and so to go deeply into the origin of things. The members are eagerly looking to the future when they will have a reference library of their own where they may meet together to study and discuss mechanical problems. It is not an idle dream that they are anticipating a well-equipped laboratory where they may carry out the theories they have studied. From time to time, prominent men of such factories as the N. C. R., the Delco and the Maxwell will talk to the members on the practical problems of their work. At the first meeting the following charter members were present: Glenn Martin, Walter Sinks, Leroy Shutts, Roy Smith, Perry Sachsteder, Byron Hastings, Russell Smith, Prugh Sigler, Ralph Kuhlman, Albert Hossli, Stanley Copp, Walter Booram, Harold Sullivan, Carl Bieser, Edward Anthony, Kenneth Beymer, Harold Deardorf, George Brush, Howard Seybold and Free Oates. The following officers were elected for the present term: President ..........................-........Free Oates Vice-President .........................Harold Deardorf Sccrctflry .......................... Glenn Martin Treasurer ...............................Byron Hastings —Free Oates. 95The Co-Operative High School Plan The Co-operative High Sehool of Stiver? was inaugurated in the fall of 1914, and means co-operation between industry and school. A pupil must have two years of high school work, or have eight credits to enter upon this plan. The pupil is required to he in the school and the shop, one week each, alternatively. This gives a boy a good start at a proper age to learn something in the mechanical line. I pon the successful completion of the two years' co-operative work, the pupil is given a regular high school diploma. One of the advantages of til is method is that the student is earning money while receiving an education. After finishing the co-operative high school course the pupil can continue his education at the University of Cincinnati or at the Stivers Continuation School. The University requires the pupil to he in school two weeks, while the Continuation School requires two half days a week, until the trade is learned. The Co-operative students are located in Room 401 and are considered a part of the regular high school and have all the privileges of regular students. The school authorities keep in close touch with the manufacturers to see that the students are given every opportunity to learn in the factory. A regular course is laid out for the shop, and this is followed verv closely, requiring the pupil to work a specified time in different departments. Saturday mornings are taken up at the factories with instructive talks by experts, when practical demonstrations are made. The Co-operative plan is being recognized by manufacturers and school authorities as a fine and successful way to give every young man a chance to educate himself. Dayton is one of the pioneers in this movement and is being watched by many of the larger cities. The writer can see no good reason why the young man of today and especially the young men of Dayton, should not continue their education, when they have these fine opportunities. —Clifford D. Sachs.OUR CONTINUATION SCHOOL The growth of an idea, by Harold Berry. About seven years ago, in the presence of a group of prominent men, assembled to discuss the welfare of the young men in Dayton’s factories, was horn the Continuation idea. Nursed by the Y. M. C. A. from a babe this idea grew in two years to the Stivers Continuation School. At present there are 107 hoys working in shops who, for one-half day a week, attend S. C. S., gratefully accepting this opportunity to further their education. Among these boys there are those who left school at an early age, even before completing the grammar school course. There are students who have had several years of high school; also students who have graduated from high school. This diversity of attainment is largely overcome by individual instruction, which is a prominent feature of the work. The school is in session for live days in each week, about twenty hoys attending each afternoon. These boys are paid for the time spent in school. This is not an act of charity on the part of the employer, as the hoy soon pays dividends to the manufacturer by increasing his capability. Fifteen companies are now represented in the school. The course of instruction includes mathematics, theory of machine tool operation, drafting and health conservation. Supplementing this instruction are trips made to numerous manufacturing concerns in and about Dayton. The course is of four years’ duration, coinciding with the four years of apprenticeship, the school year being from September to August. One would naturally suppose that no school spirit could exist in a school where the students attend on different days, seldom ever meeting one another in the factories. There is a most wonderful spirit of loyalty and enthusiasm existing in athletics and all matters affecting the social life of the school. A most successful basketball team was conducted this year with an average attendance of 80'4 of the student body at each game. We owe much to the fine showing of this team to our big-hearted friend. Coach Charley Crooks, who was ever on the job with his enthusiasm and high ideals for clean sport. A verv pretty and successful dance was conducted for the girl friends of the students at the gymnasium last April. We will long remember the artistic decorations effected with palms, ferns, ami American flags. Out of the “Continuation” idea has developed the Co-operative High School. Hence we have the Stivers Co-operative High School. We expect that with the coming years, when these co-operative students are graduated we will have an even greater Stivers Continuation School, a college to the Co-operative department, if you please, as these graduates will then attend the Continuation School two half days each week until their apprenticeship is completed. 99 I’m sitting up burning the midnight oil; I’m supposed to be writing Jingles; I’ve succeeded in rhyming “boil” and “soil,” And my poor spinal column tingles. I can’t make anything rhyme, it’s a shame; I can’t even think of a metre. Oh, well, I suppose it’s all in the game. That it makes High School much completer. There was once a student, And grave he was, too! Who had so many quizes That he didn’t know what to do. He had no time for frolic. And had no time for bread, He crammed until ’twas morning, And now he is dead. If every lass loved just one lad In loyal fifteen’s class-o. Sure and things would be very sad, For there’s more lads than lasses-o. So every lass in our class Loves one lad for his beauty-o. And lest sad things should come to pass Another one in duty-o. There was a lad at Stivers, And he was wondrous wise; He always walked upon his feet, And saw things with his eyes. Little Marie can't find her key And tears she sheds hy the peck. To the office she goes; She lost it she knows. But finds it ahanging around her neck. 100There’s busy reciting in every worn; There’s a hell that sounds like the erack of doom; There’s a rushing pell mell down the winding stair; There’s a pouring of people out into the air; There’s a cowbell that urges them, loitering in; There’s a quieting down of the noise and the din. And all are saved from possible ill; What was it? ’Twas naught hut a fire drill. TEN Little Sophomores, green and fresh. Came one day to S. H. S. She fell over Math, and said "I resign; I’m needed at home,” and then there were nine. NINE Little Sophomores, pursued by fate; He couldn’t get Latin, and then there were eight. EIGHT Little Sophomores, feeling like eleven; She loved the movies, and then there were seven. SEVEN Little Juniors up to funny tricks; He played football, and then there were six. SIX Little Juniors, glad to he alive; She crammed for a test, and then there were five. FIVE Little Juniors thot high school a bore; He got tired and quit, and then there were four. FOUR Noble Seniors, splendid as could be; She took too many studies, and then there were three. THREE Noble Seniors, with nothing to rue; He spent his last nickel, and then there were two. TWO Noble Seniors went into life; He was a preacher, ami she was his wife. And of the ten that had bravely begun. There was left after high school, alas, only One! 101September smiling ushers in 7 he school boy's shout and noisy din. September 8—School opens in the new building. An inspiring assembly.

Ye Ende of Ye Chapter. 103 104105If folks in the world are using you so that you have the blues and are tired of living, go tell Mother Nature. Probably you don't realize how good she is to you. Look at the riches she has given you! There are the birds, and the flowers, the trees, and the brooks, and so many more things, you could never count them. She has given you these things to make you happy. Then why are you sad? Go out to the woods and recline beside a brook. You are tired out, you need a rest. Your head is aching, but the soft breezes will cool your forehead and the headache will leave. Your ears are tired of hearing the noise of the city, hut the music of the rippling brook and of the soft, rustling leaves will comfort you. Your eyes are tired, so you should close them. The fairies who are playing in the flowers do not like to he seen, and you can hear the music better with your eyes closed. Probably the music will lull you to sleep, and that is what you need. When you awake you will he happy. If you are tired out, go to Mother Nature. —Helen Chaney. The Improvement Association The Improvement Association was founded in December, 1906, at East High School on Henry street. Its object was to look after the general improvement of conditions in the meager quarters occupied by the school, but it has stood sponsor for almost every forward movement the school has taken from that humble beginning to its present proud position at Stivers High. When chorus work was started in the school, the Improvement Association furnished the money to pay the expenses connected with it. W hen the school orchestra was started, and there were no funds available to finance it, the Improvement Association stepped in and donated the money. When there was no piano belonging to the school, and the first movement was made to procure one, the Improvement Association furnished all the money for the undertaking. W hen the necessity for medical aid in the school arose, the Improvement Association furnished half of the money to purchase the first equipment. W hen athletics was young and a losing proposition financially, the Improvement Association hacked it. Since its organization there has come into its treasury the sum of thirteen hundred and fifty-one dollars, nearly all of which has been spent for the purposes above enumerated, and for the purchase of the beautiful pictures which adorn our walls, there being over three hundred dollars in the treasury at present. —J. C. B. lOfiTHE STORY OF A YEAR SEPTEMBER 8 ushered in many new things at Greater Stivers. Everyone came immediately into the beautiful new auditorium, some happy, some hold, others shy, hut all eager to begin the new year in Greater Stivers. At this rousing assembly partial self-government was adopted, and the Greater Stivers Spirit was born. At the close of the assembly each one was assigned his studies, and found himself delighted with his pleasant surroundings. The hoys who had elected manual training found splendidly equipped shops at their disposal. The girls who were bent on pursuing Domestic Science found a model suite of rooms beautifully furnished for them. 1 hen for those w ho took a purely academic course there were the large new class-rooms and completely ecpiipped laboratories. For those who delighted in athletics were the gymnasium, swimming pool and shower rooms. I liese made the budding athletes fairly speechless with pleasure and anticipation. Oh, and then the large, new dining-room! For the boys especially this seemed a glimpse into paradise. Vi itli these increased facilities and with this stimulated enthusiasm we started to work. t Hallowe’en we stopped for a while to play, and play we did at our first school party. By Christmas we were overflowing with good cheer and we spread it about in the various institutions of our city where happiness seldom enters. With February came the new semester and w ith it the Senior Class organization. Officers were elected, and committees appointed and the work for the coming graduation went merrily on. In March the first school Stylus appeared, and everyone voted it the best ever. After the Easter vacation the Stylus Staff decided to publish a Year Book at commencement time, and work was begun in earnest upon it. During the first part of May the Juniors and Seniors sang in the chorus, which opened the May Festival given by the Civic Music League at Memorial Hall. Now everyone is eagerly, yet regretfully, preparing for commencement which is coming only too soon for many ol us. We all feel that this past year has been the most profitable and enjoyable one ever spent at Stivers, and we know that the Greater Stivers Spirit which is brooding over us feels content with the year's work. —Mildred Rothhaar.MR. GRESS 1882-1914 None knew him but to love him. Hie loss of Mr. Gress was mourned by all Stivers. He was a true friend of Stivers, and was loved by everyone. Not only was he a friend of those who took part in athletics, but he was also a friend of the entire student body and faculty. He believed in clean speech, clean habits and clean sportsmanship. 108■MUillM ATHLETICS f rvv««n i ihiim A GENERALSVREEY Stivers High has suffered her “ups” and “downs” this year in athletics, but after carefully reviewing the games played during the year in all the departments, we find many reasons to feel justly proud of our teams. In football, our team made a fair record, although we were given some sound trouncings hv several of our opponents. Steele defeated us hv a small margin, hut the defeat was more severe than any of the others. Basketball again proved to be our best sport. Stivers' teams have always made splendid records, hut the showing made by this year's team surpasses all others. Every team was easy for us, except Marietta. She defeated us twice and as a result, kept us out of the State Meet at Delaware. These two defeats were soon forgotten, when we defeated Steele twice, after she had made a brilliant showing at the State Meet. Baseball again proved to he a favorite game for our athletes. 1 he fellows practiced hard and made a good showing. We defeated Steele, and several other teams that faced us. The Track Team made a good showing, considering its many handicaps. A new department was added to our athletics in the introduction of tennis. Several fellows were determined to have Stivers represented in tennis, and through their untiring efforts, a club has been formed and active practice has begun in earnest. 100110 FO OTBALL When our new coach, Mr. Marquardt, sent out a call for football players, eight of last year’s letter men responded, headed by Captain Hollen. With this number of experienced hustlers ready for action, our prospects looked fine. As the time passed on. the vacancies were soon filled, and we were ready to meet any opponent. We trimmed Xenia by the score of 25 to 0; then whitewashed M. M. I. by the score of 6 to 0. Springfield scored on us, but we won, 14 to 6. Then came our first defeat. I he squad traveled to Columbus and met North High which defeated us by the count of 26 to 12. In this game we performed a stunt that was not duplicated by any other of North’s opponents. Stivers was the only team to score on her during the entire season. Hamilton then caine here and defeated us by the score of 21 to 12. The following week we smeared the lime on Middletown, defeating her, 13 to 0. On November 14 the hoys went to Cincinnati, and here received a real trouncing, being defeated by Hughes High by the score of 32 to 0. Then came the Steele game, in which we were defeated by the score of 9 to 7. Stivers 25 Stivers 6 Stivers 14 Stivers 12 Stivers 12 Stivers 13 Stivers 0 Stivers n 1 ..... Xenia 0 __ M. M. I. 0 Springfield 6 North High 25 ... Hamilton 21 Middletown 0 .... Hughes 52 .... Steele 9 Total Stivers—89. Total Opponents—113. Stivers won 3 games, lost 5 games. ill 112BASKETBALL In basketball we made a showing that will be hard to beat. When Coach Marquardt sent out a call for players, Captain Fenner, and five others of last year’s letter men were among the seventy players who responded. It did not take long until the Coach had a wonderful machine built up. This machine started right out on the road called “Victory,” crushing all of the pebbles known as opponents, with the exception of one. The material in this opponent did not consist of pebbles, but of bowlders. Twice we attempted to defeat that bunch from Marietta, but twice we failed. We started the work by defeating Xenia, by the score of 21 to 12. Next came New Carlisle. That team wras easily defeated, 48 to 16. Then came the Alumni, but they were also crumbled by our machine, on the count of 41 to 39. Our fellows then traveled to Wilmington and took that team’s measure hv the count, 37 to 15. W'e then played and defeated a team that believe in signs. The Deaf Mutes losing to us, 48 to 19. After this game we trimmed the Lions, 21 to 16. The Steele bunch fought like Lions, too, but it was all in vain, for we outplayed them from every standpoint of the game. Our machine, with Fenner as an engineer and Coach as a stoker, went to Springfield and smothered that bunch, 23 to 9. Hamilton proved easy, losing to us, 48 to 35. After crumbling eight straight teams, we met the hunch from Marietta and lost to them 30 to 21. This was our first defeat. Then came Richmond. They lost to us by the score of 56 to 28. The following Friday we met the Deaf Mutes again, and won, 31 to 21. Our machine traveled to Marietta to crush the bowlders there, a job which we had failed to execute earlier in the season. But, instead of crushing them, they crushed us, for our machine rolled over some dynamite and was blown to pieces before it really started on its good work. As a result we met defeat for the second and last time during the entire season. The following week the Coach once more rebuilt his machine and had it going in good fashion when we met Piqua. W e won, of course, 52 to 11. Next came Steele. This was the second time we met them in basketball th is season. We defeated her, 18 to 14, after she had made a fine showr-ing at the State Meet at Delaware. 113BASEBALL In baseball. Captain Roehm and eight other players from last year’s team came out to fight for their old positions. We lost only one of last year’s players—Tom Hermann. Later in the season we lost the services of Shortstop Reef. These two holes were easily plugged up, and we were once more represented by a first-class team. Captain Roehm played first base for Stivers for the last two years, and the position was easily filled by him again this year. Harness in the box, and Pollock and l.ightner behind the hat, formed our star battery. We opened the season hv defeating Hamilton 1 to 0. Then came Hughes Hi. We lost to that team 10 to 3. After this game we met Steele. Steele gave us a good fight, hut lost to us, 7 to 4, in a ten-inning game. With good support behind him, “Shorty” would have easily shut out Steele, but all the errors behind him were costly. On the other hand, Ulrey was wild, and proved easy picking for us. The following week Lebanon met and defeated us 9 to 5. On May 14, we were defeated by the M. M. I. of Germantown, 4 to 3. Stivers .....................1—0..................

This year about forty huskies followed Captain Steinhilber through the daily work-outs, and some of our most promising athletes of the season were turned out. We met Steele and gave her a hard fight, but lost by a close score. We had a far more evenlv matched team than Steele, and on the whole, made a far better showing. Had it not been for Feight, Leyda and Umble, who made 54 of Steele’s 72 points, we would have completely swamped the Red and Black aggregation. In every event, with the exception of the running broad jump, and the standing broad jump, we copped second and third honors, while in the weights we made 23 of the 27 points. Haas was the best point-getter for Stivers. He took first in the shot-put and discus, and third in the hammer-throw, making a total of 13 points. “Fat” Brower sent the hammer 109 feet, thus easily taking first honors in this event. Gerdes and Kendall, who are too light to throw the weights, made their names stand out by their good work on the dashes, hurdles and high jumps. Don Cooper gave Johnny Richmond a merry chase for pole vault honors, but Johnny’s experience defeated Don. The height in this event was 9 feet. Umble took the mile, half-mile and standing broad jump honors, while Leyda took the running broad jump, and split even with Feight in the quarter mile and shorter sprints. For Parker, Maltby and Murray made all of her 15 points. The final score: Steele—72 points. Stivers—57 points. Parker—15 points. 117118 COACH MARQUARDT TENNIS This is the first year that Stivers has been represented in tennis. About twenty candidates went out to make letters, and all worked hard. No captain was chosen, but the fellows showed splendid spirit, by sticking to work, which they themselves created. Our teams are scheduled to meet Steele, and all the players promise to give Steele another set-back. While the boys were forming tennis teams, the girls did likewise, and they all show signs of developing into champion players S W I MM IN G Swimming is another new department in athletics Although we do not intend to enter into any big meets this year. Coach Marquardt is busy showing our future aquatic stars a few points, that will help them to win honors for Stivers. 119STIVERS ALPHABET A is the Annual, with its work all done, B is our Baseball team on a victorious run.

A child came skipping down the street, the joy of living in her face, the spirit of Spring in her eyes, supremely unconscious of those about her—yet the tired business man’s mouth relaxed a little, the man-out-of-work lost some of the despair from his face, and the tired, disillusioned shop girl let a little of the dream that had been hovering about the back of her head creep into her eyes. The child passed out of sight, and yet three lives had been touched. Every dew drop is a quiver; Every grass blade is a gleam, Shallows on the river. Fishes in the stream; Evening’s starry banner. O’er all lightly flung; All these things together Tell that spring has sprung. 121All those who think our jokes poor Would straightway change their views, Could they compare the ones we print With those that we refuse.
