Until 1906 Steele was the only high school in Dayton, but the building had become overcrowded and Superintendent Carr and the Board of Education decided that the time was ripe for founding a new school. The result of their plans was that on the morning of September 4, 1906, two hundred and fifty-seven Freshmen and Sophomores reluctantly turned their steps toward the Ruskin School on Henry Street instead of toward Steele, which had been the object of their hopes. The building was still to house the elementary schools of the district, so only the second floor was devoted to the uses of the then obscure high school. The Principal, Mr. Buck, and his corps of eight teachers realized that it was their duty to make some compensation to the pupils for their loss in not attending a well-equipped school like Steele, so they tried to create a friendly, happy spirit, such as exists best when people are in relatively small groups. Such a feeling was soon aroused and fostered, not only by the pleasant activities of each day, but by a glowing vision of the future. Often, Mr. Carr and members of the Board paid visits to tell of dreams they had had, and one happy day the Superintendent brought a great picture of the High School of his dreams During the first year in the Ruskin building four literary societies were organized and various clubs came into being, fostered by the spirit of intimacy which had sprung up. These were the Photography Club, the Mathematics Club, and the Fox and Hound Club. Only two years and a half were spent at Buskin, for soon Mr. Carr’s dreams began to come true. The site on East Fifth Street, where the old Lincoln School was standing, was chosen for the new building. On January 3, 1908, ground was broken. Each teacher shouldered a pick and had at least a nominal share in starting the great work. In one year’s time the west wing of the dream building was completed and more than three hundred and fifty pupils and their teachers moved in. At this transfer of residence “Old East High” changed her name to “Stivers Manual High School.” This name was chosen to do honor to Captain Stivers, one of Dayton’s foremost educators and most beloved citizens.The greatest advantage in moving to the new building was that to the benefits of a full academic course were added those of splendidly equipped manual training and household economic departments and of laboratories thoroughly up to date. The first commencement occurred in June, 1909, and was held at the Soldiers' Home. Thirty-nine pupils graduated and formed the nucleus of an ardent and loyal alumni. Mr. Buck resigned at this time and Mr. Meek, our present efficient principal, was chosen as his successor. In 1912 the old Lincoln building was torn down and more dreams began to be realized, but not until September, 1914, did the building stand in the full glory of completion. The building and equipment are the best that money could buy, and brains create, which means boundless opportunity. It has been stated on competent authority that the manual training equipment is the most complete in Ohio, and all the other departments are fitted upon a like scale. The activities of the school have increased and multiplied in their natural course. There are now five literary societies, a German Club, an Art Club, a Dramatic Club, a Technical Society, an Orchestra, Glee Club and large Improvement and Athletic Associations, comprising nearly the whole school of over eleven hundred in their memberships. Besides the regular Stivers membership, four interesting schools are now housed within her walls—the vocational, the make time, the continuation, and the co-operative schools, all of which represent the most modern tendencies of education. From the first Stivers has had athletic teams in common with all high schools, but since 1914 the gymnasium has furnished facilities for inter-class and inter-studv room games which extend the benefits of athletic training very materially and put this department of school life on a sounder basis. One of the interesting phases of life at Stivers-is the socializing plan, whereby all school activities take place in the building under the direction of principal and teachers. Another indication of progress is the recent adoption of a system of partial self-government, the aim of which is to create in the students such stability of character and loyally to the best interests of Stivers that they may be trusted to conduct themselves with propriety in every situation whether or not a teacher is present. As far as material things are concerned, the dreams of Stivers are fully realized, but she has a vision for the future, a vision too fine ever to be accomplished, but which if kept in sight, will lead her year by year to increased efficiency and increased service.11WILLIAM H.

Place—Mr. Sullivan s library. Characters—Mr. Sullivan, a member of the class of 16. Edwin and Marie- His grandchiltlren, who have just completed their first day as Freshmen. Mr. Sullivan and Marie are reading: Edwin tatters and throws his books on the table. Mr. Sullivan—‘‘Well- Edwin, you don’t seem to be exactly pleased. W bat s wrong now?” Edwin—“Well. 1 don’t like to have to study again. It's too hot! Marie—“1 don’t, either. I’d much rather play tennis, or read. Mr. S.—“Now, don’t you call that work? I do. You just think you don't like to study, but really your schooldays are the happiest part of your whole life. Did I ever tell you what I did when I was in high school? Edwin—“No. Tell us all about it." Mr. S.—“In the days when I went to high school, the Freshies bad their own building. I was in the third class to enter Parker High School, which stood where the big Meek High School is now. I here were about 10 who started to school that fall, and we certainly had a good time. We lost about six weeks that year, three on account of an epidemic, and the other three on account of the flood. Perhaps the greatest benefit to iis all was that these two vacations caused us to have no examinations. “The next year about 350 of us met at Stivers as Sophomores. We had to get acquainted w ith our new' principal and faculty, and with their methods. be arrangement of the school, too, seemed very strange to us, for we recited in one wing of an uncompleted building. “That year our basketball team had their first try for State Championship at the Delaware Tournament and came oil second best. Marietta being champions. “Then, there was the big Sophomore picnic at Overlook Park. Nearly all of us went and we had some time, believe me! “The next year we were Juniors. W e had a new building to learn again, for the famous Stivers Manual Training High School had been finished during tin summer. That year we had an open house week, when everyone was invited to see us at w'ork in our new home.” Marie—“Did many people come?” Mr. S.—“O. yes! And a good many of us had to act as guides to show people through the building. And then we were preparing for our part in the big May Festival. After that was all over all was hustle and bustle to get ready to step into the shoes of the Seniors. And then for the Farewell! My—’ Marie—“But, Grandad, it seems as if your class never did anything but outside work. Didn’t you ever do any studying?” Mr. —“O, yes. by, in our Senior year we even studied Burke’s Speech on Conciliation. We had to study it forward and backward, crosswise and through and through, so we could w rite any part of tin outline in the test.’ Marie—“But who was this Burke?’ .»fMr. S.—M(), he was an Englishman who thought he could speak about America. But they took his speech out of the course the year after I left, because he never did anybody any good, and paper got so expensive that we couldn't afford to write the brief. Marie—“How lucky! Fin glad we don't have him at Meek. lr. S.—‘‘Very! And then in our Senior year, came the visit to Dayton ol the famous Liberty Bell, on its last journey. And later came the 'Siege of Burke which I told you about. Then, our basketball team, on which were four of my classmates, won the State Championship for the first time. Of course, after that nobody else had a show." hlclwin—“But didn't you ever play football in those days. Grandad Mr. S.—.“ ), my yes! Why, you've heard me speak of my friend, Charlie Wade, the famous Yale coach, haven't you? Well, he was captain that year when we piled up a 41 to 0 score against our rival, Steele. Marie—“That class of yours wasn't so slow, was it. Grandad ( Mr. S.—“O. no. We took everything that came our way. We had a big part in the Shakespearean Tercentenary Pageant, which was held that year. And then came graduation! The greatest event of my life up to that time. And then the farewell, and we were Alumni! Edwin—“W hat has become of your classmates? Mr. S.—can t say off-hand. How would you like to go to the Class Reunion next month with me? Edwin—"Gee. that'll be great! (To Marie . I’m going to he like some of those friends of Grandpapas." Marie—“So'm I. And let's go get our Algebra lesson, Eddie. Edwin—“All right, Marie. Thanks, Grandpap.” Mr. S.—"Well, if you don't mind, children. I ll come along and help you. Kind'o’ seems like old times again.' —Harold Sullivan, ’16. i Last Will and Testament W e, the members of the Senior Class of Stivers High School, 1916, being full of age and of sound and disposing mind and memory, desiring to make such disposition of our worldly estate as we may deem proper, do make, publish and declare this to be our last w ill and testament, hereby revoking all previous wills made by us. We hereby give, bequeath and devise: To our Principal, Mr. Meek, all rules and regulations made by said executive in the past year.

Done this 26th day of May, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixteen. EBENEZER JEREMIAH HIGGINS, Notary Public. Witnesses: Michael Moriarity Hans SchaUschneider Ignatz Powowske C 59Ten Years Hence Pcrsoruu—Kenneth Morrow, Oliver Fassett, Robert Weber, Dorothy Kalbfleisch. Delphine Small, Marian lliester. Scene—Interior oj a loft robin located ,,, the Adirondacks. Kenneth Mor-row comas in with disgusted look. K.—fc I haven t had any lurk since I came up here—only a few birds, which are known the world over, and no new plants at all. I suppose tin next thing to do is to write an editorial for the New York World, and the worst of it is 1 don’t know what to write about.7' (Sits down at a table to write.) ”1 haven’t been able to locate the birds I caine after, and how is a man to write about something he doesn’t know anything about?” CT J P (Knock at the door.) k.—“Come in; don’t stop to knock.” (Enter Dorothy Kalbfleisch.) K.—“I beg your pardon: I supposed it was just a neighbor coining in to kill some time. Why, what seems to be the trouble?” Dot.—“O, a few of us girls were out walking. 1 got lost from the rest and then, on the top of that. I fell and—1 guess 1 must have broken my wrist; it h urts—” k.— (Interrupting.) “Say, it seems to me I ought to know you. I wonder how far I would miss it if 1 were to say you are—now I don't know it all. but the front part is Dorothy—I can’t remember the rest.” Dot.—“Now, are you guessing, or do you really know me? 1 don’t know you. hut my name is Dorothy Kalbfleisch.” A.—“Why, certainly, I knew 1 was right. You don’t know me after my going to school with you for three years?” n j . Dot.—“Where in the world did you go to school?” k.—“Well, after going to several grade schools, I entered the best high school in the world—Stivers—and my name is Kenneth Morrow. Know me •j now r ir t.—‘‘Of course. How in the world do you happen to he up here ( (They go to shake hands.) “Ouch! there goes that arm! Can you fix it up? k.—“Well, 1 have sort of a first aid to tin- injured; sit here; I don’t believe it is more than a bail sprain. Let’s see if I can t play doctor for the pres-cut. (Takes medicine kit and bandages her wrist.) Dot.—“And while you are doing that you might answer my question." k.—“What was that?” Dot.—“What are you doing up here in this wilderness, living like a hermit of some sort?” K.—“O. I’m not living like a hermit. I am out among the birds, flowers and trees all day. and I enjoy it very much. You see, I m a naturalist or a student of natural history, and I am trying to get a little information on several new species of plants. Hut what are you doing up here strolling around with several girls?” Dot.—“I’m not doing much of anything. I m more of a globe trotter than anything else.” (»0K.—“Pretty soft! I wonder what lias become of the rest of Stivers '16 graduates.” Dot.—“Some of them are not so very far away. There are four of them at the hotel just over the mountain—or al least 1 suppose it is—I don't know where I am.” K.—“Four of them at the hotel! Well, now that we have your wrist patched up. let's go over and see them, then tonight you can all come over to the cabin and we sh all 1 iseuss our classmates from dear old Stivers.” (They go out and the curtain drops.) Curtain rises on same scene. Kenneth sitting at the table writing. k.—“There, that thing is finished, and if the editors don't like it, they can ship it back, for they won't hurt my feelings in the least. Vi ell. it's 7:30, almost time for company. It seems good to see those folks from dear old Stivers— and now they are all coining hack tonight for a little chat. They should be here now. I hope Dorothy hasn't lost her way in the woods again." (Knock at the door.) Enter the five classmates. “()h. here we are! Come right in. It's about time you were showing up. I had begun to think Dorothy had lost herself again." Dot.—“Oil, no! I'm pretty well located now." k.—“Well, pull up some chairs and make yourselves at home." ().—“Old man. how do you like being shut up here in these woods? ' K.—“Shut up! Why, I've got the whole woods to roam over and there s nothing like it. But, by the way, 1 haven't had a chance to ask w hat you people were doing for your health. Delphine, what is the world doing for you?" D.—“()h. I'm just recuperating from last season's work among the immigrants of New York. Dear me. how foolish 1 was when I so emphatically stated that immigration should not he restricted. ' k.—“Wlio'd have thought it! Marian, you are—" M.—“I'm resting, too. I've been teaching trigonometry at Smith. So don t you think I need a rest?" k.—“Teaching trig! 1 bet the Smith girls are glad you are taking a rest. Oliver, what about you?” ().—“I’ve come up here to secure an electrical engineering contract. I'll be mighty glad when I'm through." k.—“Oh, yes. Stivers is doing some good for the world. We haven't heard from you. Bob." R.—“Oh. I'm doing nothing out of the ordinary, only a traveling salesman for the National Cash Register." I).—“Modest creature.” Dot.—“I wonder what has become of the rest of Stivers '16 class.' k.—“By the way, I have our old Year Book. Wait until 1 find it and we will see howr many of our old friends we can recall. (Kenneth searches for the bttok in his trunk and all gather around the table.) Ml.—“Here's Janet Meyer! I hear that she is distinguishing herself as a demonstrator of Henry Doench’s Marvelous Tooth Paste, in Hike's window. They say that traffic is blocked for squares by the tremendous crowds." ().—“Forest Banning. The little fat rascal is out in Denver operating a truck farm." R.—“What do vou think of this? Fred Barton is an advocate of the former Betty Fairfax idea, and is now giving advice to lovers." 61I).—“Oh, that’s not half so surprising as this: Norma Arnold is no other than Mile. Lusette la Petite, Pavlova’s successor. I’ve seen her several times in New York.” Dot.—“Here's Lillian Battenberg! Do you know anything about her?” VI.—“Gracious, girl, didn't you know that she was married within a month after she graduated? And still worse than that, Selma Lucas was married the next week. She and her liushand have founded an orphan’s home on the same principle as the one we read about in “Daddy-Long-Legs. Kenneth, don’t you remember anyone?” K.—“ by, I haven’t had a chance to say what 1 remembered. There’s Brooke Ylarstiller. He was manager of the Wildcat Basketball team and ate up everything in sight. Brooke is now a gentleman of leisure. I suppose, Boh. you have kept track of those Co-op fellows. What has become of Edward Maloney?” B.—“lie is an instructor at West Point, and is highly complimented for his work.” M.—"Yes. what lias become of the some of the other Co-ops—Carl Ebling, Richard Trimbach and Clifford llipp?” R.—“Well, Carl is an editor of the New Device Section of Popular Mechanics Magazine. Richard is now a Triangle Film Star, and still being single, has three secretaries to answer the love letters he receives from stricken young ladies. Clifford has entered the ministry. His sermons are master pieces, hut he hasn I as yet been able to reform his friend Max Kommick, who is lighting the dry movement in Ohio.” I).—“Dorothy, h ave you heard anything about Rosaline Nicely, other than that she is teaching French at Stivers?” Dot.—“Oh. yes: she travels in Europe every summer. What’s the latest news from Pat Doudna?” D.—“Naomi is lecturing, or I mean she was, for she met an Irish nobleman and quite carried him away with her eloquence. They are living at Kilkenny Castle. Ireland.” VI.1—“Has Pat come to that? Well, Helen Stein is just as had. She married a minister and they are in Turkey teaching the heathen. More surprises. Esther Stevens and her slender husband, George, are with them and bring tears to the eyes of the poor people through the duets they sing.” K.—“Huh! I bet they aren’t tears of joy. You girls needn’t think you are going to monopolize this affair. Here's a hunch of fellows I can tell you surprising things about.” O.—“For instance.” K.—“Well, here’s Kevin Nolder. He married a society butterfly of Mexico City so he could do the cooking. The dinners he gives are famous all over Mexico. And then Moses Goldberg, whom you remember for his oratorical powers, has succeeded Rahhi Lefkowitz, and Maurice Linder is in the Philippines searching for a certain tropical hug for which the Smithsonian Institute has offered a prize of twenty dollars.” R.—“Good lor Maurice! Ernest Lukey has already earned a reward for himself, lie rescued Russel Lydenberg from the Singer Building when it was ravaged by fire." D.—“Now let me tell you about the marriages which have occurred among our classmates. Myra Rodim and Harry Manley, rather Mr. and Mrs. Manley, have taken the Castle’s place in the dancing world, and. of course, make a huge hit wherever they go. Mercy, we almost forgot Walter Miller! He has been so successful as the governor of Montana that lie is going to run for president in the next campaign. I helnia ildasin. his most cherished wife, is walking miles each 62day canvassing for him. I know that Bess Chamberlin married her dear Jim, Biit. Dorothy, do you know what has become of them?” Dot.—“Yes, Jim being in business in Canada, they have purchased the Talbot Canadian home. They say that Bess entertains seven days of the week and fifty-two weeks of the year.” ().—“For pity sakes, girls, let's not have any more matrimony for the present. Here is something that will eool you. Millard Levy is captain of a boat sailing from Alaska to the North Pole, and is ably assisted by quarter-master, Walter Loeb. If that makes you too cold, here’s something to warm you up again. Russell Saunders has taken quite a fancy to lion hunting and is traveling through the wilds of Africa with Teddy.’ M.—“This picture of Martha Clark reminds me of the day last summer when I was in Dayton and met more members of the Senior class then I had seen for years. Martha is coach at assar College, and laughs her way into the good graces of the girls. Then I met Ruth Hockey, who has taken Mr. Boldt’s place at Stivers, and she told me that Amelia Diamond has succeeded Miss Schauer. 1).—“How many familiar faces we would see at Stivers. Who else did you meet, Marian?” M.—“Well. I saw Jeanette Click. She, Erma Heffner and Susan Hufford have offices in the Arcade. Erma is a beauty specialist, Susan a manicurist and Jeanette has produced a new cure for the blues. She hypnotizes you with a giggle, and exit—the blues.” R.—“Dorothy, you were always fond of the movies. Have any of our old friends distinguished themselves along this line? Dot.—“Yes, lots of them. Margaret Hahn has become a feminine Charlie Chaplin. Robert Burns is the most villainous villain the Lasky Company has, and Lois Burtanger is the company’s favorite emotional actor. Pierson Hendrickson is a director of the Lasky Company.” K.—“How we have deteriorated! But, do you know, there are about as many farmers as movie stars. Eugene Schmidt has a stock farm north of Day-ton. Arthur Mtimma has an agricultural station near Germantown. Glenn Blackledge has a large ranch in Nebraska.” ().—“O, yes. Pearl Weindrop is a cow girl in the same region. She is immensely popular among the cow boys, but she has never married, because she says it is lots more fun to have a dozen suitors than just one husband.” Dot.—“Oh. yes, Dclphinc. tell them the results of our motor trip through northern Ohio to Chicago last year.” I).—“Well, we stopped at a farm house near Tiffin for some water, and imagine our surprise when Lucile Christman answered our knock. I always thought her love for cows and chickens would terminate in something of the sort. Then when we arrived in Chicago we visited Marshall Fields, and there saw' Florence Steuer demonstrating rouge that would not rub off. Her rosy cheeks proved a tempting drawing card. We learned that Mabel Christan is worthy of her name and is very active in the charity work of Chicago.” M.—“Speaking of names. Hazel Cook has also lived up to hers, for Professor Haas, of Cincinnati University, declares that he has the best cook on earth. To a certain degree Leona Black has also lived up to hers, as her life has been the darkest kind of a mystery. You remember that Madam Lazare, whom the Russian government threatened to send to Siberia? Well, that was no other than our old classmate, Leona Black, w ho. under that name, was promoting socialism in Russia.” 1).—“She is doing a noble work.” (1.—“Well, Harold Common has been verv uncommon, for the matrimonialbureau founded by David Casterline and Clarence Coleman was quite a failure in the case of Harold ami Louise Lebert. She sued Harold for $50,000 in a breach of promise suit.” R.—“IM hate to think that was a common occurrence.” M.—“The class of ’16 has certainly furnished its share of pedagogues. Florence Mohr is keeping a select school for young ladies in Massachusetts, and she is most radical along the lines of deportment. Strange to say, Ida Knaak, one of the head teachers of the institute, is doing all in her power to thwart Miss Mohr's rules. Then, Lucile Greenwood and Georgianna Lewis are teaching in the mountains of Kentucky. Georgiana’s experience in taking charge of 316 has proved quite beneficial to her. Dorothy Mark wick is professor of Theology at ()tterbein.” R.—“I heard something funny about Esther Hershey the other day. She married and is making a fortune raising snakes for Zoological Gardens. And funnier than that, Lillie Sieber is working out the old Darwinian theory, and to further her investigations, has married that she might have an example for her lectures.” I).—“Have you heard of the Toland-W ebb debate on the picture show question? They say that in St. Louis Martha was so eloquent in her appeal for the banishment of picture shows that twenty-five of the leading picture show men vowed to close. W hile Hazel received an olTer of marriage from one of the wealthy men in this business. K.—“That's the first time I ever heard of any good coming from a debate. However, debates may have added something to the brains of our old class-mates, Clarence Murray. Henry Borchers and Gregg Blackwood.” M.—“Why do you think they excel in brains? W hat have they done?” K.—“Well, Clarence Murray was elected representative from Ohio, and I see by the papers he is one of the greatest statesmen in the House. As for Henry Borchers, he is a veterinary surgeon in Iowa.” ()r—“That takes brains!” K.—“Please don't interrupt. Gregg Blackwood is president of a steamship line in Chicago. Some of the girls have proved themselves very intelligent, too, haven't they. Dorothy?” Dot.—“Why, of course they have. For instance, Catherine Boh lender has a studio in New York, where she is leading the woman's party, and intends to run for governor in the near future.” 1).—“1 hope she gets it. And, O, there’s Marguerite Brueshaber. We all knew she would do something unusual. She’s at the head of the Red Cross Nursing Association, but I hear she intends to resign and start a model hospital in California w ith Una Ware as her assistant. 1 11 wager she will make a success of it if anyone could. K.—“Oliver, I’ve rather lost track of the obi Olympian crowd. Tell us what you know about them.” O.—“Ralph Randall is writing insurance for the XX Rye Insurance Company. of which Harry Reimiller is the president. Then there’s Charles Borchers. He has written a history of the European War, which Mr. Cecil endorses and uses in his classes. Prugh Sigler is making a name for himself by selling Fords in Green County at a hundred dollars apiece. Clayton Studebaker is one of the leading cattle raisers of Texas and has become very wealthy. He owns about three sections of land. That’s all I recall now.” M •—ul ve heard that Maurice W right is out West, too. He is comfortably located on two thousand acres of land, and makes the raising of wheat a specialty.” 04I).—“Speaking of farmers, Rosa and Magdelena li Ho nig, whom we remember as the inseparable sisters, are living on adjoining farms in Idaho. Callie Barto is running a model dairy with Florence Campbell and Elsie Bauer assisting her. They have, I believe, one of the finest dairies in Ohio. Dot.—“Well, 1 must sav some of our classmates have surprised me by their love of the country. But luckily others have redeemed them by doing far more exciting things. For instance. Bess Kline is married and has gone with her husband. who is consul to Afghanistan. We hear that she is teaching the natives to laugh, and even shocks them with her western fashions. R.—“I think you’ll call this exciting, too. Helen l)e Voe is traveling with Keiths, and is their latest drawing card. She is hilled as the slim princess.” K.—“Whether this is exciting or not you must judge for yourselves. Louis Hiller is running an elevator in the Miami Hotel. John Nuckols is at present holding down the honored position of motorman on a Green Line car, and has as his conductor Gordon Hammond. They say their chief incentive for retaining this position is the fact that they pass Stivers every day.” 0.—“Oh, here’s Catharine Moore’s picture. She is one of the best known doctors in Greenland. She is second only to Or. Barker. But tin strange part of it is that Edna McFarland has gone w ith her as her housekeeper.” Dot.—“Speaking of unusual things, the other day while we were stopping at Boston we went to the opera, and there to our great surprise, found that the leading soprano was Helen Jackson. Schuman-Heink, upon hearing her sing pronounced her one of the coming prima donnas.” K.—“W e’s been talking about girls long enough. Aon know it is hard on an old bachelor’s nerves. Here’s John McGee. What is he doing? R.—“He’s running a large department store in Milwaukee, and Clarence Dano is at the head of his men’s furnishing department. I bought this necktie of him for the sake of old times.” I).—“For the sake of old times. They were great, weren't they? Do you remember the last football game we went to. Dorothy? hen we wrested the city championship from Steele by 44 to 0?” Dot.—“And, Delaware, oh! You weren’t there, were you? It was wonderful! I shall never forget how Harriet Cyester rooted.” M.—“Good old Cv. What has become of her?” 1).—“Why, she didn’t get married at all as we expected her to. She is mayor of Omaha City now. I bis is her second term.” Dot.—“And Florance Zartman. You could hear her all over the building. By the way, didn’t she disappoint us? She is married now for the fourth time.’ ().—“Great Scott!” 1).—“1 don't see how she got four husbands. She never could cook.” R.—“Oh! they lived in Cincinnati and ate their meals at the Ideal Dairy Lunch, run by Marie Biand. Helen Bussdicker and Sylvia Getz.” K. “Speaking of things to eat. Marie Floyd has a candy shop in Cleveland and is patronized by the Tour hundred’ of the city. By the way, Charles Crooks and Calvin Cool are the favorite leaders of Dayton’s ‘four hundred.’ All the mamas consider them great catches for their daughters.” M.—“Oh. here’s Emerson Carmony, one of the state champs. He is now physical director of the . M. C. A. Right below him here is Clark Denniek, who is operating oil wells in southern irginia. Dot.—“Who told you lie was in irginia?” M.—“Well, you see Esther Hecht is city manager of Lynchberg and we correspond regularly.” 65O.—“Have you heard who City Manager Waite's successor is?” AH—“Who is it?” O.—“Vi liy, no other than Lewi Erhart, and Merrill Fotney is one of the city commissioners, I hear.” I).—“Oh. here on this page I see Verna Pontis. Mabel Pratt, Bessie Probst and Erma Borghardt. You remember that Verna Pontis was such a tease. W ell, she married a minister and he became bald in tin first two months of their marriage. 1 don’t just recall what Mabel Pratt has done.” Dot.—“Oh. I know where she is. She has a peanut farm in Florida and is so wealthy that she has established libraries all over tin country which she calls the Peanut Libraries. But I don't know anything about Bess Probst.” K.—“I knew her husband and he died because she talked him to death. As for Erma Borghardt, she is teaching civics at Stivers.” R.—“By the way. Stivers has turned out quite a few notables. George Ly-ford, for instance, lie is the speaker of the House of Representatives. Fred Puni-plirey won the world's record as a motorcyclist at the races held in Berlin, and holds eleven loving cups in his possession. Harry Roberts is also in Berlin, where he is taking violin under a most noted master. Hobart McWilliams is a representative of Luther Burbank and is traveling all over the state of Michigan selling a new variety of seeds.” O.—“Oh. yes: Bussell Mattern has become a groat chemist and is now living in Boston and is quite famous for his discoveries along this line.” M.—“Well, the notables are not all among the boys; have you seen the last number of the Century? Stivers has at least one literary woman. Chariest Higgin latest poem on "Spring has aroused the whole country. Critics say that she is one of the most promising poets in America.” Dot. -“Yes, and have you heard of the success of Elsie Schaeffer and Esther Spahr? Elsie reads and Esther sings, and they simply cannot travel from one city to another fast enough to till their engagements.” K.—“There you go. talking about the girls all the time. How about Stanley W hiteomh? He has just announced his candidacy for president on the Socialist ticket.” R —“Yes. and W aldo Mattery is athletic editor of the New York World.” D.—“Speaking of fame. "The Lambert School of Oratory' is of international fame. Edna has briefs lor every known debate and is most generous in loaning them. And Miriam Hcrrman has opened a detective agency in San Francisco and is doing most effective work in the Japanese quarter of the city.” O.—“Oh. well, let's not quarrel about respective merits of the girls and hoys. I guess they are just about even on that score. Here's Paul Leonard's picture. You know lie has been recently offered a position at the ‘General Electric Company. Hoyd hrazell has entered the engineering field, too; he is mechanical engineer at the National Cash Register Company and owns considerable stock in the corporation.” R-—“Yes, they were both Co-op hoys. Stivers can justly he proud of the Co-ops. Paul Weaver is the legal advisor of Mr. E. A. Deeds of the Dayton Engineering Laboratories. Vnd John Foster is attorney-general in the state of Massachusetts. He was elected hv an overwhelming majority.” M.—“(Hi. well, that's nothing. Leona Lang has become a great inventor. She has invented an imi ihle mirror. They sayr all the high school girls are crazy about it. but the teachers are dreadfully wrought up.” D.—“(Hi. that she had invented it when I was young!” Dot.—“Yes. Iris Moore is rather inventive, too. She is chef for tin HeinzCompany, and lias succeeded in raising the famous fifty-seven varieties to fifty-eight.” M.—“No wonder you know about her; Dot, you always keep in touch with everything that concerns ‘eats ” Dot.—“Huh! I know more than that about ‘eats.’ Clara PefTers and Emma-rene Jarboe are running a waffle wagon in New York, and I buy waffles of them whenever I see them, so there!” I).—“Oh. dear! You’re making me hungry. Let us talk about something else. Do you remember Alice Jenkins? Soon after leaving school she married an eloquent preacher, and they left for Africa, where she is now known as the 'White Angel.’ ” M.—“Eugenie Rowe is somewhat of a missionary loo; she is nurse for the anderhilt children.” Dot.—“Poor Eugenie. Let us talk about something that is not so sad. Here is Garnet Dubbs. hat has become of her 1 wonder?” D.—“Oh, she is married and is at last permanently located in her beloved Hamilton.” Dot.—“Oh, yes, Virginia Strattner and Evelyn Thompson are married, too. They married twin brothers, and live in adjoining apartments. They say they have the most exciting time trying to keep from getting their husbands mixed.” D.—“Vera Ramsey and Donald are married, too. You know she took a course in nursing and is of priceless value to her husband, who is a renowned doctor.” R.—“Help! This marriage proposition is getting on my nerves.” k.—“And mine.” Dot.—“Well, no one is asking either of you to get married, so what are you complaining about?” O.—“Whew! Did you get that?” k.—“Er-er. I say we’d better change the conversation. Here is old Storch. He has devised a reinforced chair, and is making considerable money selliiu: them.” ().—“And here is something along your line. Dot. Ralph Jordan is sole owner of the popcorn, peanut, candy, dope, soda-water and chewing gum stand in Miamisburg, and is doing a rushing business.” Dot.—“Oh. I wonder if he needs an assistant. But I suppose this would interest you more. Cletm John has become a noted evangelist, rivaling Billy Sunday. And Clarence Wertz is a lieutenant in the Salvation Army.’ R. • Villen! I).—“Speaking of ministers reminds one of Charles Rosensweet. He is running a poultry farm in Michigan.” O.—“1 11 wager he is besieged by every minister for miles around.” Dot.—“I wish I lived near that farm. Um-um—.” k.—“Here, here. Get Dot off that subject.” D.—“Well, here goes. Howard Hetzel married a wealthy widow, and they say he makes a beautiful ornament to society.” R.—“Here is another ornament to society. Randal Potter has become a druggist in Dayton, and sells more cosmetics than any other person in the city. You sec lie uses his complexion to advertise his goods. Dean Antrim is in business in Dayton, too. I hear that he has greatly enlarged the Gem City lee Cream Company, of which he is now sole manager.” O.—“You remember Albert llossli. He is the leading man in a musical comedy and employs Barret Rosier as his valet.” 67M.—“Speaking of the stage, Stanley Morris is now playing the leading roles for the National Film Company, directed by Carl Mueller. And Adrian Berger is at present writing a sensational love story for the company.” Dot.—“Yes, and George Brush, who is judge of juvenile court in St. Louis, takes care of all the after effects of those same plays.” ().—“Here is old Bill Bohlender. He is a famous officer on tin I . S. cruiser ‘Lefax,’ I hear.” 1).—“Here, turn that page and let us see some of the girls. Fin tired hearing about your old boys.” M.—“Oh, there’s Minnie Office. She was head bookkeeper for a large department in Oregon, but has recently married the proprietor.” Dot.—“And Priscilla Trapp. She is conducting a summer hotel in the Catskills. She has invented a new kind of bait which she guarantees will catch ten fish in ten minutes.” h.—“That sounds like a woman. Expecting a fellow to swallow something like that.” I).—“Well, here is something you may be able to swallow, although you don’t need it. Beatrice Berman and Mary Bayless are running a school called the Bayless and Berman Institute for Social Emergencies. Their main course, is ‘How to Falk and what to Say.’ ” Dot.—“Well, Mr. Morrow may not need to study ‘how to talk. hut it certainly wouldn’t hurt him to tudy ‘what to say.’ ” R.—“Ken, these women are entirely too hard on a fellow.” ().—“Oh. I say, I believe in peace at any price. Here is James Berry. W hat is he doing, Weber?” R.—“He’s another Co-op star. He is a member of the Pinkerton Detective Agency and announces that lie is about to uncover a great scandal. Speaking of Co-op stars, we have forgotten Paul Swaninger and Raymond Bleicher. Paul is interested in flying machines, and is a second Orville Wright, while Raymond is a teacher of music in one of the large conservatories in Oakland, California.” O.—“You haven’t mentioned Russel Greenwald. He has patented a new scale appliance and is now holding a prominent position with the Dayton Scale Company.” I).—“Oh, there’s Irene Forrer and Gertrude Frank. Some one told me what they were doing. Let me see—oh, yes, they are teaching at O. S. U. M.—“Here is another girl that is doing school work. Gladys Phillips is devoting her life to persuading the school authorities that there should he enough rest rooms in the high schools to accommodate the entire student body at once, and that there should be an interval of resting between each period. Sad to say she is not having much success.” Dot.—“Here is one of our most distinguished school teachers. Ruth Wilson is now president of Sweet Briar College, where she is trying to persuade the girls to wear uniform dresses for school.” I).—“Speaking of uniforms, Little Lillian Schultz has donned a police uniform and is keeping perfect order in Xenia, Ohio.” ().—“Great Scott!” M.—“Here’s that tiny Mildred Boss. Whatever became of her?” I).—“Oh, she is a model at Madame Lizelle’s clothing shop on Fifth Avenue, if you please. I see her quite frequently.” Dot.—“Here i Adalyne Moehlman and Lillian Kelley. Weren’t they inseparable at school, though?” I).—“They are yet. They have a little studio in Bohemia, where they 68 earna living by posing for calendars and magazine covers. 1 saw a beautiful Art Calendar which they had posed for, called ‘The Rivals.’” M.—“Why, that is all of our girls and there are pages of hoys left.” Dot.—“Now, Kenneth, you may talk about hoys to your heart’s content, and we shall consent to listen.” k.—“I thank you. I've been wanting to talk about some of the fellows, hut even a confirmed bachelor learns to he polite to the fairer sex.

(sadly) I dug her grave the next morning.” R.—“Lucky cat. Harold Seifert is next. What is he doing?” ().—“Running a Naval Recruiting Station in Miamisburg. M.—“How exciting.” K.—“Isn't it? Fred Shank is next. He is a tailor in New ork." ()—.“And Harold Sheets? I haven’t heard of him for years.” 1).—“Poor Harold. He is a victim of the same thing I am. He is at Ellis Island examining immigrants. He has had three nervous breakdowns, hut insists upon remaining at his post.” R.—“Plucky fellow. Here is Warren Snyder. He is president of the Day-ton Gas Company, and Harry Shuey is reading the meters.” Dot.—“Imagine Harry Shuey reading gas meters.’ O.—“Stranger things than that have happened. For instance, James Stevens is a traffic cop at New' Carlisle, while Seldon Roaelie is the most patronized plumber in Germantown.” (Groans.) R.—“Marion Spralev stays around Germantown or Miamisburg, too. He is teaching school near one or the other.” k.—“Well.

Why, I believe he is working on the night force at the N. C. R.” ().—“He always did likr» late hours. Is liaison Stewart’s picture on that page? You know lie joined the army and went to Mexico. He is a general there now in our standing army. I visited the barracks last year w hen I was down and saw him.” R.— don’t envy him his position. Mexico is too hot for me. That’s La- erne Sweeney, isn't it? The last time I was in Dayton 1 put up at the Phillips House and found him there. He is the clerk. And there was another Stiyerite in the check room. I can’t remember his name. He is a real little fellow with—” Dot.—“Not John Tobias.” R.—“That's the man." k.—“Here is Charles Wade. He is still at Princeton, I hear, and was captain of their football team last season. Louis ilson. I believe, is just out of r omedical school, and is practicing in Hamilton. They say he is so proud of his little medicine case that he carries it to church with him on Sunday.” D.—“Just like a man. They all love to look important.” O.—(forlornly) ‘“It’s all wrong, men! It’s all wrong!” K.—“There is Elmer Walsh. They say that after taking a very difficult Civil Service examination, he was appointed chief dog-catcher of Xenia. And don’t you know his work has been so thorough that a kind-hearted spinster has found Xenia the only safe place to establish her home for stray cats.” O.—“I’ll wager they will he wanting a cat-catcher there in a year or so. Anyone know what has become of Ewald Wolff?” A.—“Sure. He is known as fcWolff, the Daredevil Sleuth of Milwaukee.’ Dorothy, did you yawn?” Dot.—“Why, of course I didn't.” R.—“1 am afraid you girls are bored.” Dot.—“Well, I am not. 1 always was interested in hoys.” 1).—“Oil, naturally!” Dot.—“Well, you know what I meant.” k.—“Certainly, Dot, certainly!” Dot.—(sweetly) "What has become of Albert Meyers?” ().—“Sure, we'll change the subject if you sav so. Meyers is clerking at Hike's.” I).—“What about Leo Palmer? He was in my Virgil class—for a while.” K.—“Oh, Palmer is quite wealthy and is living in St. Louis.

He is trapping animals for their fur just across the Canadian border." Dot.—“I think that is cruel." II.—“Well, we will write that young man and tell him to stop.” Dot.—“Sm arty!” R.—“Hush, children! Don't disturb the peace. Here is Ellsworth Paul. He is still in Dayton. Head book-keeper at Elder’s, if I remember rightly." k.—“I can’t place anv more of the fellows.” ().—“Nor I.” H.—“Let me see.

I'm stumped.” ().—“Oh, there is Clarence Alspaugh and Edward Andres. Why, they are both teaching at an engineering school in Boston. But I haven’t heard of the others since I left Stivers.” M.—“Oh. hut we must know all of them." I).—“W ell, suppose you let me help you. An old Italian woman taught me how to tell fortunes with cards last w inter, and—” k.—“Now look here, Delphine. you don’t want us to think that you believe in fortunes.” I).—“1 don’t care what you think. But I know that I have told cpiite a few right.” Dot.—“Indeed she has. ' H.—“That would be fun. Have you a pack of cards handy, ken?” k.—“Yes, I'll get them.” (He leaves and returns with cards.)

The only thing that Mike could do with a railroad would be to ride on it.” ().—“Well, sav. laying all jokes aside, someone told me that a Mr. Ming had bought the stock in that railroad company. Rut 1 never dreamed it was Mike.” I).—“Ralph Kuhlinan. Ah, his cards show fame and prosperity. He is operating the new gyroscopic railway between New York and Albany. (Shuffles cards.)

He is a member of the sehool board in Dayton, and is noted for the number of stringent rules he can pass in one day.” R.—“Well, I never thought that Frazee would forget his youth to that extent.” I).—“Howard Geter and John Kendall's cards are alike. They both follow educational lines. They are at the head of Wilherforee College. (Shuffles cards.) Joseph Havens. Let me see. Mv cards are rather mixed. Oh, now I have it.

I think Stivers need not he ashamed of our class, all right.” Dot.—“I know I am proud of it.' 1).- (Rising and holding glass.) ”Here's to the school of schools.

Her port shone far. a distant star Her goal—ideals attained. And every year that she had sailed ISeiv laurels she had gained. CHORUS— Heigho-heigho Stivers High. Heave ho. lads, with a joyful cry; Good luck, good luck. Stivers High, Sail on. Stivers High. But lo, a change conies o'er the sea; The storm king's banner far is flung; The pilot starts, “Ahoy!” cries he, "Another victory won." Then every lad springs to his place; The lasses cheer them on. And though great storms come on apace, hey staunchly sing this song. chorus— Each year the good ship touches port And sets ashore an eager crew. Come battles now of every sort To Stivers well 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.

IIREE years ago a little rose plant pushed its head into the bright world after eight years of constant toiling through rich, fertile soil. Upon looking about, it found itself in the Parker High School Garden. While there under the care of the master gardener, Mr. Painter, and his faithful helpers, the rose was carefully matured and quickly grew. As food, the plant was given Science, English, Latin, German, Manual Training, and sundry other things, together with plenty of golden sunlight. Under the influence of these elements it developed rapidly and became stronger until the time for transplanting. After the rose had been in the Parker Garden, it was divided into two parts, one being given to the Steele Garden, and the other to the Stivers Garden—two places abounding in rich, nutritious soil. The plant in the Stivers Garden struggled and struggled to keep alive. Sometimes the way was steep and rugged, but it labored more earnestly until it surmounted its difficulties. In the course of its two years there, it had lost many leaves, but in spite of the fact it still bears two hundred and twenty-six of them. They are bright, healthy leaves, always ready to absorb the elements necessary for their growth. Whatever these may be— Caesar, Macbeth, Brigitta, Quadratics, Formulas, or what not, each is an important factor in the development of the rose plant. The flower of this strong, hearty plant has not yet unfolded its fragrant petals, but under the careful attention of Mr. Meek, and his wise gardeners, and with sincere and diligent work on its own part, it hopes to bloom in June 1017. Until then it will patiently work and wait, drinking in the moisture and the sunshine in the Stivers Garden.—H. I).. '17.JUNIOR CLASSSOPHOMORE CLASSSophomore History T was the middle of February when two fond parents were heard talking sons rather than business. Mr. Smith, whose son Jim attended Parker High, was busy telling Mr. Jones about the advantages of that wonderful school. The Jones family lived in a distant city, consequently Tom Jones could not boast of being a Parkerite. “I’ll tell you, Mr. Jones,” said Mr. Smith, “Parker High School is splendid. Why, Jim thinks there’s nothing like it. In order to give each one a chance to make the teams in Athletics, they divided the school into nine groups, each group having its own team in football, basketball and baseball, and let me tell you the fellows surely take advantage of it. The literary societies are a mighty fine thing, too. Between Jim’s society and his English he has learned to read good books. Now the chief topic of interest is the Parker play, which is called ‘Daytonia.’ The whole team is looking forward to it.” About a year later the two men met again and this time as before their conversation drifted toward sons, and naturally with that came school. Both boys were enrolled in Stivers. Mr. Smith explained that it had been a very easy matter for Jim to decide whether it would be Steele or Stivers for the completion of his high school course. It was an enthusiastic class of which Jim became a member, for it entered into all the school activities with zeal and soon became an important factor in all the activities of the school body. . p .-.o K H ’18 79SOPHOMORE CLASS81Alpha Nineteen hundred sixteen Marguerite Brueshaber Lois Burtanger Bess Chamberlin Helen Chase Lucile Christman Martha Clark Helen DeVoe Naomi Doudna Carnet Dubhs Margaret Hahn Dorothy Kalbfleisch Bess Kline Dorothy Mark wick Florence Mohr V era Ramsey Esther Stevens Delphine Small Thelma ihlasin Floranee Zartman Nineteen hundred seventeen Rhea McConaiighv Jeanette Ockelman Doris Robin Luci le Roeh m Helene Tounsley Ruth Altick Eleonora Brueshaber Edytlie Bussey Marian Ernst Ruth Lines Nineteen hundred eighteen Olive Bryan Marie Tapper Winifred M.

The conditions of the old time, one-man service, have passed away forever. However high up a man may go, he must cooperate cordially and loyally with his associates and they must co-operate with him. Stivers Co-operative School began its second year as a part of the Stivers Manual Training High School last September with an enrollment of eighty-two; three of this number are taking Graduate work, sixteen will graduate in June, and the others are pursuing work in their respective classes. The entrance requirement of eight high school credits for admission to the Co-operative school is rigidly enforced. The school has taken an active part in all regular school functions, and in athletics, especially, have they shown their class. In football, three of the regulars were Co-op boys; in basket ball, two; in base ball, the school furnishes two pitchers, the first baseman, the second baseman, the short-stop and the center fielder; and in track they are upholding the reputation of the school. Not only are we strong for athletics, but the moral and mental standards of the school are kept high and the boys are constantly urged to greater things. “Co-operative High School” is just another expression for “Opportunity.” It affords the opportunity to many boys to complete their high school course and at the same time learn a trade; these otherwise would be compelled to quit their school work, that they might earn a living or help support their brothers and sisters. A man is made up largely of his daily observations. School training serves to tit and discipline him so that he may read rightly the lesson of the things he sees around him. Everybody lias within himself the tools necessary to carve out success. Consecrate yourself to some definite mission in life. Keep clean, fight hard, avoid enemies—for enemies and ignorance are the two most expensive things in a man’s life—pick your openings judiciously, and have your eyes fixed forever on the heights toward which you are headed. These are some of the principles which are being instilled into the minds of the pupils of the Co-operative School.—W. 0. (i. 105Hiet CO-OPERATIVE HIGH SCHOOL■ looms OU.l 1MIJ,M(K) SOIContinuation School The schedule of the Stivers Continuation Basketball team, consisting of ten games—seven won and three lost—given elsewhere, shows the spirit of the school for apprentices who come from fourteen of Dayton’s factories one-half day a week, to receive instruction in shop practice, mathematics and drawing. The boy who has gone through high school and who is serving his apprenticeship can come back to school and receive special instruction in shop, mathematics and drawing which will make him able to apply his previous school work to his shop training. Many boys who are forced to go to work without finishing their high school, and in some cases grade schooling, can fit themselves for their work by getting the special work in mathematics, mechanical drawing and the elementary principles of Physics by coming to school one-half day each week during the years of his apprenticeship. The school includes a number of boys who have not only been forced to leave school to go to work for a living, but those who foolishly thought that they did not need any more schooling; but, who after they had had some experience at work, soon learned that they were lacking in sufficient education to make first-class mechanics. To these the Continuation School offers an opportunity to make up this deficiency to a certain extent. Also the Continuation School affords the employer an opportunity to get the young mechanic in touch with the trade journals and new ideas in shop practice. A young man who is ambitious to complete his education will be more loyal to an employer who takes enough interest in his future to send him to school one-half day each week and pays him for his time. 109Continuation Basketball Record DATE OPPONENTS PLACE Dec. 17—Con tin . . 25 Osborn __31 () bo. n Dec. 18—Coil tins 31 Xenia __27 Stivers Feb. 5 —Contins 46 I nion City 20 Stivers Feb. 11—Contins 43 Tipp City __24 Stivers Feb. 18—Contins 19 Fairview . _16 Fairview Feb. 19—Contins 23 St. Mary's _17 Stivers Feb. 25—Contins 21 Osborn .25 Stivers Feb. 26—Contins .. 11 Union City .25 Union City ■VIcli. 10—Contins 21 Fairview _10 Stivers Mch. 26—Contins 24 St. Mary’s .22 St. Mary’s College Totals . 264 Opponents - .217 110I o the victors belong the spoils ill  URRED on by a successful football season and determined that their basketball record should be even better, ninety candidates, all willing to give Stivers their very best, responded to the first call for basketball players. At the first meeting of the season it was definitely announced that a boy who wasn’t able to live, or train according to the laws of health and physical efficiency could not hope to have a place on the squad. Several clear illustrations were made showing that cigarette smoking and other injurious habits were detrimental to athletics and therefore could not be tolerated. It was shown that before games could be won, the team must first be physically fit. After a week of elimination games the squad was cut to fifteen and definite work was started. The local season was a success, Stivers having won twelve out of fourteen games, losing to Richmond and Piqua by two and nine points respectively. In their fourteen games Stivers scored 54o points against her opponents’ 304. Having established such a record, the athletic authorities of Stivers thought it advisable to send the team to Delaware to compete for State honors in a tournament conducted by Ohio Wesleyan University. There were sixty-three teams enrolled in the tournament, representing some of the largest cities of the State. The teams of the northern part of the State played the first week. Mt. Vernon and Liverpool were the two teams of this section to go through without defeat. The second week found the teams of the southern division competing. Marietta and Stivers were the two teams to win all their games (four in two days) in this section. These four undefeated teams represented the cream of the basketball talent of the Stale and were entitled to compete the third week for the highest honor, State champions. Loyal, as always, to the team and school one hundred and seventy Stivers students and faculty went to Delaware, March 18, by special train to cheer their team to victory. Saturday morning Stivers played Marietta, defeating her 30 to 10. There was nothing to the game but Stivers. She scored at will and her defense was perfect, Marietta being able to score but three field goals during the whole game. The Stivers team worked together like a well-oiled machine, and worked so fast that Marietta was unable to see her speed, consequently the decisive defeat. By this victory Stivers gained the championship of Southern Ohio and defeated the team picked by authorities to win the State Championship. In the afternoon Stivers played East Liverpool, champions of the northern section for the State Championship. Stivers 112started right in where she lef t off in the morning. The whole team worked like clock-work and there wasn’t a minute when the outcome of the game was in doubt. At the final whistle, the score was id to ,‘fl in favor of Stivers. This victory gave Stivers the State Championship. Besides winning the honor of Stale Champions, Stivers received two beautiful loving cups. One a permanent cup, the other to he held for one year. The team holding the latter three years, not necessarily consecutively, becomes owner of the cup. It was a glorious day for Stivers. It would be well to note the fact that all the players that took part in the games at Delaware are good students, three of them practically all “A” pupils. This shows that they work in the class room as well as on the basketball floor. They gave to the team the best they had and the best came back to them.—W. M. The Night of the G ame 'I was the night of the game, and all thru the house Every creature was stirring, yea. even the mouse. 7 he parents were there and seemed fitb’d with delight In hopes that Stivers would win that night. The students were nestled in groups on the floor. While visions of victory loomed up before. My wife with a pennant, and the same. Had just settled ourselves to see a good game.

For out on the floor there arose such a howl. The referee called it a technical foul. But filled with the spirit that shows Stivers' vim They returned to the fray determined to win. So backi'd by the school arid spirit therein I'll iust leave it to you if our boys can't win. 113 —F. C. S.  •— ------- Lightner, Forward Finding, Guard Mumma. Forward Carmony, Center Mar-tiller.

When the call was sent out thirty-five men answered it. Most of the men were new and inexperienced, but headed by Captain Wade and some of last year’s men, the new team mates were taught their places. As the practice days went by tlit machine took form and developed into the finished product. The team was then ready to defeat all opposition. The first game was with Piqua, in which our team was defeated 12 to 8. Although this was not the best way in which to begin the season, this game put the team in lighting shape. Hope arose, but Springfield destroyed it by a score of 34 to 7. Sidney proved the prophecy that the third time is the charm, by walking off with 26 points for themselves and leaving us 6 points. Then the tide turned. Hughes “Hi” was trimmed for the first time in five years by a score of 7 to 0. Thus we made up for last year’s defeat of 52 to 0. East High of Columbus gave us a test of our own medicine with a score of 13 to 7, but we evened matters with Columbus by whitewashing the Deaf Mutes 48 to 0. November 5, Stivers attempted to make a score against I lam ilton, but the latter slopped us with a score of 7 to 0; on November 13, we walked through Xenia 24 to 0. The Coach then received his gold plated chance to even up with Steele, and he made good use of it. The Tigers played the Lions off their feet and blacklisted them with a score of 44 to 0. Thus ended the season of football, one of the most enjoyable of outdoor sports at Stivers. While this year was very good from the standpoint of scores and spirit, the outlook for next year’s team is equally as good, if not better. Indeed, Stivers is looking forward to another year of good football. Stivers 8 Stivers 7 Oct. Stivers 6 Oct. Stivers 7 Oct. Stivers 7— Get. Stivers 48 Oct. Stivers 0_ _ . . Stivers 24 . - - - — Nov.

But whenever it was possible, the boys who are baseball “fans” were practicing vigorously. One of the most important games of the season was that between Steele and Stivers. It was close and interesting throughout. Not until the fourth inning did either side score, when Stivers had two players reach the home plate. Xo more scores were made until Steele made two runs in the seventh inning and one in the eighth. It was a great disappointment to lose this game after the early victories with Middletown and Lebanon.

Leyda, the one man in whom Steele had placed her hopes for victory, did not have a chance, for Lighter passed him easily. Five firsts and two seconds, totaling thirty-one points, was Lighter’s share of the victory. In tact, everything was Stivers from start to finish. Beymer, Banning, Good and Lyford finished the work where Lighter left off. Lyford coming in first in the mile run, with Beymer second, leaving third place for Steele’s best man, Mitchell. Xolder and Wallace tied for first place in the high jump, and Larry Ricker, heaving the hammer 91 feet and 7 inches, easily captured first place. Parker made a very poor showing, and had to be content with nothing for her efforts. This was by far the most successful track season Stivers has ever won, and she hopes to continue the good work.When the call for basketball players was made the Senior girls were very enthusiastic, and from the beginning worked hard for the championship. The .Juniors and Sophomores had a team f rom each study hall, but the Seniors had only one team. This obliged the Senior girls to play at limes two games an afternoon, but nevertheless they won all the games, for the championship game one team was chosen from the Junior and Sophomore classes.

Although it cannot boast of great swimming meets and contests, if it could talk, it would tell about many glorious good times. The pool which has been in use for two years has given much pleasure to students and faculty. On Monday afternoons high shrills come from the swimming pool, as evidence that the girls are taking a dip. Gentler sounds come from the girls who are learning the art of keeping afloat on the water. The boys may swim during stated vacant periods, and you may be sure they return to class fresh and bright, ready for work. This year men were picked for the swimming team, and utter constant practice, the coach arranged a swimming meet wdh the V. M. C. A. Although we received only 17 points and the Y. M. C. A. 34, this defeat did not dampen our ardor. It indeed acted as a stimulant and it is hoped that some day we may even up with the Y. M. C.
