67The Obligations of a High School
NE’S life can be divided into three parts: education, achievement and service. This does not mean that these three are independent of each other. While one is being educated he should always be rendering service; but for the purpose of our discussion it is a little easier to make this artificial division.
Roughly, education embraces the ages between five and twenty-one. For some, this period is longer and for others, considerably shorter. The average boy or girl who enters the kindergarten and graduates from college will find that his period of formal education will fall within these years. The educational period is expected to train one to live a more effective and efficient life. While it is entirely possible to be educated outside the public schools and colleges, experience has shown that it is very seldom that one achieves as good results as when he takes the usual course.
Following the period of formal education comes the time of actual achievement. The boy or girl, having received his formal training, enters the active walks of life and has an opportunity to show what his training plus his native ability has done for him. After a few years of preliminary experience which might be classed as an apprenticeship in whatever vocation one chooses to follow, he then begins to make real headway. The most difficult thing for many young people, who have had a good education, to remember is, that no matter what line they enter, they must go through this apprenticeship period. Too many times a college education has become a temporary handicap because the graduate is unwilling to go though this preliminary but essential stage of his chosen vocation. As a man or woman progresses in his work he should actually achieve something worth while in it. If he is a lawyer, he will desire to stand at the head of his profession; if a doctor, he will want to be one of the best doctors in the community; if a business man, he will desire to have a successful business and a reputation for integrity.
The third stage, the period of service, is not to be thought of as separated from the other two. As a man or woman becomes established in his profession, he will be called upon more and more frequently to render public service for which there is no pecuniary compensation. He may be asked to serve on the Board of Education or upon various improvement committees. Often the outstanding men and women in the community will not take upon themselves this additional burden and thus are not discharging the obligation which they owe to the community which has given them their opportunity. The community at its own expense has educated these young men and women and given them the opportunity to succeed. Certainly it is no more than right that they should repay the community with service.
I am confident that every Stivers High School graduate has had a good education, will have a successful period of achievement in whatever field he or she may enter, and that each one will cultivate high ideals of public service.
PAUL C. STETSON, Superintendent of Instruction.
8Choosing Your Vocation
N OLD notion has it that there is just one life task for which each individual is predestined, and that he must find that task. Is it not nearer the truth to say, that there is one type of work which each of us can do, but that there are many sub-divisions under that type? One may be skillful clerically, but there are many varieties of clerical work which one might do equally well.
Martha Bruere has said that two far-reaching questions are fundamental in choosing a vocation: “What kind or type of work can I do best?” and “Of these
kinds, which does society now need me for?” To illustrate: if one is fitted to be an engineer, what kind of engineering will serve society best? Or, if one is by nature a teacher, shall he not teach subjects which are necessary to his times? It often happens, and tragically too, that after a person has prepared himself for what he wants to do, society has ceased to need him for that particular service. On the other hand no man can be happy if he prepares himself for a life work which is in demand, but for which he does not have a sure fitness.
In terms of psychology each person must be united in his emotion and in his intellect, in the life work he has chosen. We must be entirely dedicated to the life work, in mind and in spirit. Great trouble arises through vain imaginings that we can do what we were never endowed to do. The foreconscious mind which includes our thinking and feeling must be united with our unconscious, subconscious or deep hidden desire, if we are to be happy in a life work.
Education must afford every person an opportunity to try himself out in various kinds of work so that he may have a basis for choice. We can never make a wise choice by imagining a vocation; we must have a chance to practice the vocation for a while. Vocational guidance at its best is the providing of practice opportunities during one’s youth so that he may know, and not guess, what he can do. A part of every pupil’s school life should be spent in part time work even without pay, at practice in various kinds of work.
At present there is especial need of agricultural engineers, of educational engineers, of engineers in religion, of good roads engineers. Cities are calling for managers, men who have trained for the task. Our small towns which have been satirized in “Main Street” are needing engineers in architecture, in sanitation, in town-planning. Executives and labor leaders can serve the work at home and abroad by getting together. These times have their especial vocational needs and we must observe the signs of the times.
When can one decide? Shall it be in high school or college? There is no time for delay. It would be well if at the threshold of college the answer could be given each person to the great vocational query. But many must wait until later. There is no one time for all. Yet surely more could settle this question of a life work if educational institutions aided as they might in this very fundamental particular. Too many—indeed almost all your boys and girls—are left to fight this answer out alone. And many answers are wrong.
—F. D. SLUTZ.These cannot make the rough ways smooth;
But they can toil to make weak travelers strong To trudge right onward though, forsooth,
The journey may be long.

.MISS EMMA BURTNER
The proud and invincible motions of character— these, these abide.
Miss Emma Burtner, whom death claimed on the morning of February the thirteenth, has left with us a memory of a woman, beautiful in character and spiritual in vision.
26Our good ship, Stivers High,
Has come to port at last;
We bid fond farewell to the Orange and Black, Still floating from her mast.
27THE GOLDEN TV AY
From out the Castle’s pleasant gates the young Knights rode away, With laughter and some sighing for the revels that were past.
Through shade and summer sunshine stretched afar the Golden Way, The Road of Great Adventure lay before their eyes at last.
Now as they galloped down the road, they met a comrade Knight,
One who had shared their banqueting within the Castle halls.
They cried, “The road seems pleasant now, the sun is beaming bright.
Say, will it ever be like this? Must we beware of squalls?”
“Ay,” quoth the Knight, “the tempests come and happy skies grow dark
And oft come Rain and Weariness, rogues who must be fought.
But through the gloom you'll hear somewhere the singing of a lark. And pleasures are sweeter when with sword-strokes they are bought.”
“Along the Golden Way you'll find adventures strange and new, Huge, gloomy castles threatening, where giants block the way.
But enter boldly! You will find of treasures not a few,
And he who slays giants wins a princess fair as day.”
“Good luck! May heaven guide you, and send you sunny hours!”
So cried their friend. The young Knights laughed and tossed their banners gay,
The fair green hills were fragrant with ever-blooming flowers, With singing hearts the band rode forth upon the Golden Way.

In September, nineteen-eighteen,
Could be seen to Parker turning Lads and lasses from all quarters,
Drawn there by their love of learning.
They did their work and got their lessons; Wailed in anguish when the season Was cut short for twice three fortnights,
(Influenza ivas the reason.)
Sophomores came stepping proudly, Entered Stivers, that great high school, Prompt to further its traditions Each one proving, “This is MY school.”
Working, cheering, boosting, backing Every enterprise when needed—
Thus it was this class established Its fine record, ne’er exceeded.
79Class History (Continued)
Junior year brought greater tri Such as Chaucer, “lab,” and speeches,
But to hint such problems scared them Twenty-two’s real grit impeaches.
As a tribute to the Seniors
Came the Farewell—mostly dancing,
Ne’er did time more quickly vanish Sped by music more entrancing.
Senior dignity enwraps them,
Rings and pins their state proclaiming,
Great and small their worth admitting,
Even mice and lions taming!
All undaunted by state ridings,
Triumphing o’er Burke’s whereases.
On they come to graduation—

WHAT is the Make-Time School? It is here that pupils “make time” by covering the eighth grade and first year high in one year. The eighth grade essentials are taken together with four high school subjects—English, Latin, Algebra, and Ancient History. Manual Training or Household Economics may be substituted for Latin.
Who may come to the Make-Time? It is open to various types of pupils. The ususal one is the merit pupil from the seventh grade, who for some good reason wishes to gain a year in his school life. Again there are the capable children from other cities who have had some of their eighth grade work, but not a sufficient amount to justify their entrance into high school; also those in our own city who have been prevented from completing the eighth grade because of illness or some other unfortunate circumstance. The Make-Time School will enable such children to save the year which they would otherwise lose.
What are the natural endowments required for entrance? There are just two— brain power and willingness to work. In order to cover two of the most important years of the entire regime in one year, intelligent, persistent effort is necessary. At the end of the school year the competent, faithful pupil is richly rewarded by receiving a diploma, which entitles him to enter the second year high school with four credits.

THE boys of the prevocational class have had on the whole, a most successful year in the academic and industrial arts work. The work has advanced each year, much progress has been made, and the standard raised. By arousing interest and cultivating habits of industry, many have awakened and are making good. Some have prepared and will enter the freshman class next September. One hundred and twenty-five boys were enrolled during the school year.
In conriection with the industrial work part time is given to academic work in related subjects. Much of the arithmetic taught in this department was in connection with their mechanical work.
The boys learned to contsruct good English sentences and most of them could give an oral or written recitation in a very satisfactory manner.
Educational trips were taken through the important factories of the city and Miami Valley. These trips proved very beneficial for they formed the basis for the work done by the pupils in shop English. These trips are intended to show pupils how to investigate problems, and how to make oral and written reports of their findings. “Only as knowledge is put to work, is it really learned and assimilated.”
Some boys took advanced drawing in the co-operative department. Their work compared favorably with the regular school students. “Vocational education must be so constructed as to contribute to the making of the citizen as well as to the making of the worker. Vocational education is not in conflict with liberal education, but is a supplement to it. If the hands are skilled, the heart is trained; and if the heart is right there is no limit to the possibilities for public service in the individual.” Character building is a strong feature in this work.
The distinctive feature of the organization of prevocational work in Dayton, is that pupils have the unusual advantage of using the same building and much of the same equipment as regularly enrolled pupils of the Stivers Manual Training High School. They receive much individual instruction.
The plan pre-eminently encourages individual progress, which makes it difficult to describe in detail the work of the whole group.
The progress of the pupils is due largely to the association of the pupils with high school spirit, activities, and ideals. I. D. K.

111112The tiger’s a ferocious beast
That feeds on championships and scores, But when the tournament is o’er,
How peacefully he snores!
Q doubt you have heard these questions asked many times in school, on the streets and elsewhere, “What’s wrong with Stivers’ football teams? Wiiy can’t Stivers have teams like other schools?” These questions can be answered this way, “Give us time.”
Last fall the call for football material brought forth a squad which was green and inexperienced, as only two letter men from the previous year reported. All of iast year’s men had graduated or were dropped from the squad by the new ruling of the Hoard of Education with which all are familiar. This meant that Stivers must choose a team almost entirely from new rceruits.
The schedule was perhaps the hardest that any Stivers team ever faced. With half of our games away from home, there was no caw sledding for the team.
The first game at Middletown was more or less an experiment since there was no one in the line-up who had ever played a similar position previously in interscholastic game. Middletown won by the close score of 12 to 0. The game, which was hard fought from start to finish, showed up the weak spots and enabled us to plug them before the next game with the fast Piqua team. This game ended a scoreless tie.
The first victory came at Hamilton where we won 7 to 0. Then came another defeat at Huntington, West Virginia, 13 to 21, in one of the hardest fought football games ever played. The next week found us in Toledo to battle with Waite High who had one of the best football teams in the United States. The game was nip and tuck throughout the first three quarters with Stivers leading 3 to 0. Waite, however, annexed two touchdowns in the last quarter, winning 13 to 3. The Lima game was another home game which ended with Stivers on the long end of a 20 to 7 score. Sidney was alio defeated at Triangle Park.
The season ended on ‘Turkey Day’ in the annual combat with Steele. On this occasion Stivers upset the dope bucket by holding Steele to a 26 to 6 score, whereas many had predicted that Steele would win by fifty points.
As a whole the season was a success. The team did not win all of its games but gained much valuable experience to be used in the approaching season.
There is no reason in the world why Stivers cannot have a good football team each year if only a little more pep, a little more spirit and a little more determination can be obtained from the players and a few' more words of encouragement from the student body.
Next season will find the Stivers football team completely equipped with new' uniforms. The Athletic Association has already purchased forty-eight complete new uniforms, the best on the market. It is the aim of those in charge of athletics to equip the Stivers teams in good uniforms that the teams will make a good appearance while on the field. 'Phis will have a tendency to make the players themselves realize they are playing for a real school, that they are fighting for a real team and that Stivers shall get on the map in the football world. Let’s go, Stivers!

115THE TEAM-1921WHEN STIVERS DEFEATED SYDNEY
117RUSSELL YOUNG—Captain 1922—Full Rack (Russ)
The eleven made no mistake in electing the “Boilermaker” captain of next year’s team. Russ is a performer, well versed in all departments of the game, who should be able to instill a winning spirit in his team.
FRANK SMOLAR—Right Half (Hunk)
Smolar made a deep impression during his first year on the team. Hunk, who is a fine defensive player, allowed few opponents to get past him.
JAMES CALDWELL—Captain 1921—Left Tackle (Jim)
A linesman proficient in all departments of the game, Caldwell showed marked ability as a leader of his team. If Jim had not been injured early in the Steele game, the final score might have been different. He will leave in the line a big hole to be filled next year.
1 ISALFRED RICHARDS—Left End (Al)
Richards made a niche for himself in the Stivers hall of fame when he intercepted one of Buchanon’s passes and ran forty yards for a touchdown, the first score Stivers has made on Steele for three years.
VERNON SCHWAB—Left Guard (Bum)
One of the gamest players ever seen on a local gridiron, Bum upheld the traditional high, athletic standard of the Schwab family during the past campaign. His defensive ability leaves little to be desired and few are his equals on offense. Vernon Schwab is one of the best all-around guards ever developed at Stivers.
RALPH STEVENSON—Center (Steve)
Although it was Steve’s first year of football he soon developed into an excellent center. Few gains were made through the middle of the line while Stevenson was playing.
119CLIFFORD LANG—Right Guard (Kick)
Last season was the climax of Lang’s playing career at Stivers. He made an enviable record, one which beginners will do well to emulate.
ARTHUR WELCH—Left End (Art)
Early in the season Coach Lingrel needed a pair of dependable ends. Welch helped to solve Coach’s problem. A player of real ability will be needed to fill his shoes next year.
DENVER YOUNG—Quarter Rack (Denny)
Due to injuries, Denny got off to a late start last season. He is a brainy field-general who should be at his best next year.
120RUSSEL KRAMER—Right Tackle (Russ)
Kramer, besides playing a fine defensive game, showed up well on the offense. He was on the receiving end of many passes which resulted in substantial gains.
SAMUEL STOTTLEMYER—Right End (Sam)
Stottlemyer was one of the men who helped to solve the end problem. A dependable flanker, Sam will be missed next year.
WILLIAM O'RYAN—Center (Fat)
Although rather light, Patsy put up a fine game at center. He is of that fighting type that cannot be downed.
121WARREN RAMBY—Full Back (Bunk)
Ramby was about the fastest man in the backfield. It was only the exceptional ability of Russ Young that forced Hunk to fill a substitute’s role.
EDWIN SEXTON—Right Half (Ed)
Sexton was used as a general utility man in the backfield. He was always ready to go into the game at any time.
RALPH DAVIS—Left Half (Dutch)
Whenever a couple of yards were needed for first down, Dutch was able to supply the necessary punch. Although Davis made a fine record last year, we expect even greater things in the coming season.
122HARRY SHAW—Right Guard (Hawkshaw)
Although a broken arm kept him out of many games, Shaw had tlie right spirit. He should make an excellent showing next year.
EDWARD WELSH—Quarter Back (Pinkie)
In those games in which he took part, Welsh showed real ability in handling the team.
CLIFFORD CAREY—Right Tackle (Chief)
When Caldwell was injured in the Steele game, Carey was given his chance. He delivered the goods in a remarkable
123Basket Ball Survey
NOTHER basketball season closed a few weeks ago. We did not have the Schwabs this year, nor Matusoff, nor Sifford, nor Poock whose faces were so familiar last year. The basketball outlook this year was very similar to football as there were only Stevenson and “Denny” Young left from the previous year. A new team had to be built, which meant lots of hard work on the part of .other players, in order that we would be ready with a team to uphold the reputation of Stivers.
There was little time to practice between the close of the football season and the time we met Arcanum on the basketball court for our first game of the season. Stevenson, D. Young, Otto, Smolar and Welsh got the call to start the game with Herrman, Davy, Marquardt, English, Ramby and Balskey, playing the last half.
The first six games were won easily and it looked as though the team would go through the season with very few defeats. A defeat however by Springfield on our own floor seemed to prove our undoing as eight games were lost in succession. There seemed to be a jinx hanging over the team for play as hard as they might Stivers had to be content with a score which was twice but four points behind their opponents. The latter part of the season was much better. We broke our jinx with a win over the undefeated Chillicothe team on our own floor. Next came the famous Wingate team to Memorial Hall where we handed them a drubbing, 40 to 17. There was but one big ganpe left and, as Stivers had determined to finish the season with no more losses, we primed ourselves for Steele. (Steele had previously beaten us in our first game 19 to 15). The second game was perhaps, as many interested fans were heard to remark, the fastest, cleanest, best-played game of basketball in Dayton for sometime. Stivers won 19 to 15 by the same score as the first Stecle-Stivers game. This victory gave Stivers the right to claim the City Championship for another year.
Next in line was the tournament at Delaware where the title for the southern part of the state was contended. Stivers lost out in the sixth game to Greenfield, a team that had beaten us earlier in'the season. The games in the tournament, with the exception of the first two, were hard and well played with Stivers spending all they had to come out on the long end of the score.
Next year Stivers ought to have another good basketball team since practically every man will be back. With a year’s experience there ought to be plenty of material to begin the season.
Stivers has always had good basketball teams. Everybody in the State knows that. We are coming back at Delaware next year.

125CITY CHAMPIONS IN BASKETBALL—1922OUR TROPHY CASERALPH STEVENSON—Center (Steve)
A fine defensive player, Steve captained his team well. Due to injuries he was forced to stay out of the final games on the schedule as well as the state tournament. Had it not been for this unfortunate accident Stivers would probably have placed another man on the All-Southern.
DENVER YOUNG—Left Forward (Denny)
An additional burden was placed on Denny’s sholders when he was appointed acting captain in Steve’s place. For his cool-headed aggressiveness and brilliant floor work, Denny deserves much credit.
SAM HERRMAN—Center (Sam)
Herrman filled Stevenson’s place at center in excellent style. He is a speedy performer with uncanny ability in caging the pill. At Delaware Sam was ranked as one of the three best centers in the state.
RUSSELL YOUNG—Left Guard (Russ)
At the beginning of the season Russ was not even classed as a regular. However, he was always willing to learn and gradually developed into a finished player. In the tournament, Russ, who was at the peak of his form, was picked for the All-Southern team.
128RAY OTTO—Right Forward (Ray)
To tli is diminutive forward was assigned the task of shooting fouls. His ability to locate the basket from free chances proved to be the deciding factor in more than one game. In his remaining years at Stivers. Otto should make a fine record for himself.
FRANK SMOLAR—Right Guard (Hunk)
Smolar holds the unique record at Stivers of having played in every football and every basket ball game in the past year. Hunk proved that he had both courage and stamina by standing the long grind of playing week after week without a rest.
HOLLISTER MARQUARDT— Forward (Hollie)
Marquardt was also forced to sit on the side line during most of the games. Although his lack of weight held him back, Hollie made a creditable showing whenever given a chance.
HAROLD DAVY—Guard (Jack)
Although the subs were seldom in the limelight, they contributed much to the success of their team. Davy wras ready to fill a regular’s position on any'occasion.. .1-

135The Advantages of Athletics
THLETICS when mentioned a few years ago brought forth a mental picture of twelve or fifteen boys who composed the athletic squad or team. Vigorous play made this group of strong boys stronger, it developed them to excellence. Heavy muscular activity promoted in these boys the kind of character which democracy prizes, a character which is self-reliant, energetic, resourceful, and social.
Seeing and realizing the results athletics obtained for this small group made these questions arise. Why not everybody in the game? Why not everybody receiving these benefits? If vigorous games make the strong stronger, what will they do for those not quite so strong?
The system to train every boy and every girl for an all-round development or moderate accomplishment was started. This movement received its first real impetus during the recent world war where the system of everybody in the game was an important part of the training given to all soldiers in every military camp in the United States as well as those abroad. The athletic activities in the various training centers proved to be a real factor in conditioning our soldiers.
The boy lor girl of today who does not enter vigorous athletic work of some kind daily may be likened unto the foolish man who built upon the sand a house which was wrecked by the rains and winds. The boy or girl who engages in some form of exercise daily is like the wise man who built a house on a solid foundation, a foundation which would weather the rains and winds of later years. By rains and winds I mean business reversals, financial depressions, sickness, loss by flood or fire, any of which may come after you have finished school and are engaged in business. T o cope suc-cesfqlly with any of these a strong body and personality is necessary.
The advantages to be gained from athletic work are many. Loyalty, responsibility, enthusiasm, self-control, will power, good health habits, initiative and good judgment are encouraged and developed. Athletics makes the student fit for citizenship, fit for social life, fit for indusrial life, fit for professional life, in fact fit for all life.

FKES1IMANHealth Education for Girls
you know that the Winged Victory is the sculptured form of a woman of perfect proportion and posture; that good posture is essential to health and beauty; that health education (the newer and fuller program of physical education) can teach you how to have and keep good posture and health?
One has only to look at the many people around us and realize what an amount of misery exists because of the want of perfect health alone.
It has become evident that the value of exercise as a remedial measure cannot be overestimated, the lack of proper exercise often being at the root of poor condition of health. Since, in many cases, the need cannot be met in the regular class-work, individual work is given—special exercises to remedy special weaknesses.
The “weaker sex” stigma is gradually being removed as health education is advancing. We are recognizing strength and weakness, both physical and mental as applying to either sex and not definitely belonging to one more than the other. But health education does recognize that all girls are not physically up to par. Low-standards of health are being gradually overcome. Healthful activities are encouraged. Freedom from restraint in heavy dresses and skirts is also the present order. Lowering the high heel and rounding the pointed toe is still to be accomplished, but it will come.
The girls of Stivers High School are becoming more and more interested in health education. A number of them are trying to be all that health education stands for,— one hundred percent perfect young womanhood, free from every restraint that prevents them from enjoying life to its fullest. In the class work, general health exercises are given, with particular emphasis on good posture. Those who require special work, come for individual exercises. Results are showing! It will not be long before people are noticing that the Stivers High School girl wralks u-ith the erect bearing and springing step that come from health habits and exercise.
Because exercise has been emphasized, jt does not mean that plav is not as important as regular exercise. Any game that attracts—basketball, tennis, golf,—should be played, not however from a sense of duty, hut for the pleasure that is formed in a wholesome activity. The real value in the game lies not so much in the exercise, as in the fact that it is a change, a rest, a recreation, and a supplement to daily routine and exercise.
Under the fuller program of health education, the results are not alone physical. The physical, mental and spiritual life cannot be dissociated, and as health becomes firmly established, the girl obtains an improved outlook on life and a real insight into the joy of living.
Get uplift in your bearing
And strength and spring and vim;
No matter wliat your wo'ries To slouch won't alter them.
Just square your shoulders to the world.
You're not the sort to quit It's not the load that breaks us down It’s the way we carry it.
—Anne Pope Riley.'s
FOR OUR HEALTH
141O Athletes! IVe have watched you fight,
And fall, to rise and win!
Your victors’ crowns are ever bright, To fame you enter in.
Retain your rosy, chubby cheeks, And hearty childish laughter E’en when grey hair comes on in streaks
And bald heads follow after.
And when your age is ninety-two Pursue the frisky ball, so,
That you may show the way to do,
To sons and grandsons also.
142As comrades we have walked Along Life’s merry way;
And friendship’s tribute each to each Most cordially we pay.

IT by bit the Stivers Auditorium is acquiring the equipment for the “Bandbox Theatre,” toward which all Stivers students are working. The decoration of the walls, the new velour curtain, the indoor set arc all satisfying in color and design, and give a new tone to the work.
So many students were enrolled in the department at the beginning of the year that it became necessary to employ an assistant. Miss Bessie Ganzer has done most creditable work, and has made it possible to produce a large number of plays during the year.
The first performance was the presentation of Barrie’s The H ill, for the parents’ meeting on the evening of November 10. The play is difficult for such youthful actors, but the lines were read with considerable understanding and sympathy. At Christmas time A. A. Milnes’s IVurzel Flummery was presented. Humor of life rather than of situation characterizes this play, which is a satire on English high society. In January the members ‘of the College Women’s Club were entertained. The ll ill was repeated, and in addition, Three Fills in u Bottle by Winifred Hawk-ridge. This playlet is one of the most charming of vehicles for high school students. 1'he cast was received with unusual enthusiasm.
Various little entertainments have been given during the noon hour to make money for several school projects such as The Annual and The News. Notable among these were The Truth for a Day given by a cast of five girls and Stuart Walker’s The Medicine Show, under Miss Ganzer’s direction.
One of the most important events of the year was the group of plays presented by the Junior Class. The plays given were: The Flower of Yeddo by Victor Maynes, The f lorist Shop by Winifred Hawkridge, and The Burglar by Margaret Cameron.
The Art Department executed one of its most effective settings for The Flower of Yeddo. This added materially to the success of the play.
The Senior Play is always the culmination of the year’s work. No stronger play than Charles Klein’s Lion and the Mouse could have been selected. The play was produced in a masterly way. The seniors who took part were:

171ONE OF OUR FESTIVITIESSOME OF US
174Here and There
Not “Hands up!” but “Hands off!” was the cry when we returned to our beautifully decorated building last fall. The fresh and spotless walls have stood the wear and tear of fifteen hundred vigorous young Americans very well indeed, and the reason is that those same young Americans were proud to be just as careful as they could of the splendor that was theirs.
Some of us were beginning to think that perhaps we should come to the end of our days at Stivers without seeing that long-talked-of trophy case materialize. But the great day dawned at last, and now the most striking feature of the corridor of the main floor is the imposing cabinet with its superb collection of cups. Every loyal Stiversite can not fail to step a little higher when his eye rests upon this reminder of his school’s athletic prowess.
Many times during this year have we had an opportunity to drive dull care away. The noon periods have been used frequently to present to the students brief entertainments for which a trifling admission was charged. We have had lectures, dramatic readings, moving-pictures, theatricals, vaudeville stunts, basket ball games— in fact, every known amusement has been offered. Surely all tastes must have been gratified.
On the other hand, we have had fewer general assemblies this year. Their scarcity has made us appreciate them more than ever. There were reasons, of course. In the first place, our auditorium for many weeks in the earlier part of the year was occupied by painters and decorators. Another handicap has been our size. There’s no use arguing—there are too many of us. It takes the wisdom of a Solomon and the courage of a Caesar crossing the Rubicon to decide who shall be barred from the assemblies. In spite of these obstacles we have had some memorable gatherings, and have listened to some fine and helpful speakers.
Of all sad words of tongue or pen
The worst are these: “Except Freshmen!”
Our school orchestra whose worth is generally recognized, participated in the program given for the pleasure of the Central Ohio Teachers’ Association, which met in Dayton last November. This spring, also, they were asked to play preceding a session of the City Institute. We are always glad to share our orchestra, for we are proud of it.
Judging from the crescendo squeals and coloratura giggles that are heard when the girls’ gym classes are in session great things are being done. The girls are gaining a clearer realization than ever before of the vital place that health education has in their lives.
175Early in the year the seniors and juniors held very successful class parties, their study-hall teachers being in charge of the arrangements. Any one who has looked in during a “social hour” such as we have when an ath'etic victory is being celebrated or at the beginning of the Christmas holidays knows how eagerly these affairs are welcomed. Never mind, under classmen, your time is coming. When you are juniors and seniors, you, too, will experience the joys of a class party.
With one accord every study room was seized with the Christmas-basket idea this year. The extent of the project chosen depended upon the size of the study-hall. Some were able to supply more than one family with food for the Christmas dinner; others added simple gifts for the children. Hut every one did something, and the heaped-up, running-over baskets gave more meaning to our own holiday happiness.
Sing a song of credits.
Add them one by one;
You must have sixteen of them Before your race is won.
The Stivers News has made a fine record this year. The contents have been so varied that each issue was a distinct surprise. Fortunate is the student who has a complete file, for there could be no better history of the year at Stivers—except, of course, the volume you are reading now.
The Improvement Association lias functioned quietly but efficiently all year. Its most obvious achievement has been the placing of name plates upon all our pictures. No longer is it necessary for the would-be artistic soul to murmur, “Let me see, that’s Corot’s Sprint —no, it’s his Dunce of the Nymphs—after all, 1 think it’s one of thle Grail series." A glance at our new name plates will put an end to such guessing contests.
A nickel, a nickel, who’s got a nickel To pay his Improvement dues?
To-morrow a dime—
You know it is time To bring out the Stivers News.
Our library this year has been increased by a number of new volumes ordered from the list carefully drawn up last year by our librarian. These books cover a wide range of topics and represent the latest developments in literature, history, science, and kindred fields. The magazine table is always surrounded. The papers in greatest demand are those dealing with current events.
Honors are even. The boys of the Jeffersonian and Olympian societies met in deadly combat on two occasions this winter. The first fray was a forensic one, and Olympian carried off the palm. The second contest was a basket ball game, and this time Jeff was the victor. Both affairs called forth much talent, spirit, and enthusiasm. The work of these organizations is of a very high quality and the members gain much help and inspiration from the meetings.
176The girls’ literary societies—Alpha, Circle, Delphian, and ega—have had a busy and profitable year. Much care has been nut upon the programs, social service activities have been many, and jollifications have not been lacking. Much diversion was caused by the initiation of new members, who by their docile obedience to orders made the day brighter for the casual bystander. Of special interest this spring has been the Lyceum Course, which the Circle girls with the co-operation of the other girls’ societies have sponsored. Alpha Easter eggs and Vega Easter flowers ushered in the spring vacation most appropriately for students and teachers alike. Delphian has been especially interested in brides; in fact, the girls point with proprietary pride to the faculty wedding.
The Girls’ Club of the Y. W. C. A. does much for its members. No girl should miss the varied activities of this organization, which stresses the development of body, mind, and spirit.
No club wins a more enthusiastic attendance than Hi Y. What disappointment when a meeting is postponed or canceled! What dismay when the season closes!
Two societies correlating with academic work are El Circulo Espanol and Classical Club. Both organizations have had successful seasons. 1 he Romans may now be distinguished by their pins, which were chosen after careful consideration. 'I lie Spanish club has had the excitement of changing its name—without benefit of clergy—but the good work of El Estudiante is being continued in El Circulo Espanol.
“The heights by great men reached and kept—’’ You’ve heard that line before.
The Heitz by VIiss S. made her own Was won by Cupid’s lore.
Perhaps the greatest change in our school life resulted from the ruling against semester examinations. Unannounced tests, yes, but most of us prefer an unannounced test to a final exam. A good thing about the new system is that the last week of the semester can be used for regular class-work. The first semester slipped so gently into the second that to the rank and file its advent was scarcely noticed.
If you were to hear the announcement you might be pardoned for being a bit startled—“The Art Department will dye to-day”—but no one has been seriously alarmed when the real nature of the operation was understood. Tie-dye and Batik work have been the newest activities of this enterprising department, and much loveliness has been created by these fascinating methods.
Twice this year Stivers has delightfully entertained others than the student body. Before the Christmas holidays all parents were invited by the faculty to attend a reception and program especially prepared for their pleasure. This proved to be a most successful affair. Not long after Christmas an open meeting of the College Women’s Club, to which many of the faculty belong, was held in our building. Both occasions revealed the splendid spirit of co-operation at Stivers, for all departments worked together to contribute to the success of the parties.
177The handsome curtain which adds so much to the beauty of our auditorium was made possible by the Carnival held over a year ago. The choice of color, material, and style was the result of committee meetings beyond count and conferences that became a weariness unto patient flesh, but the beauty of our curtain is well worth it all.
Another gift that the school was pioud to receive is a framed copy of the Mayflower Compact. This was presented by a member of the organization which perpetuates the memory of those men to whom we owe so much.
We fear we have a few Goops—oh, only a few, we assure you—at Stivers High School. At least the appearance of blue placards in the halls and smaller replicas in our study-rooms pointing out the wisdom and advisability of improved conduct in the dining-room would seem to indicate as much. The guilty Goops are very sorry indeed that all the others had to be placarded, and they have sworn a deep and solemn vow to mend their manners.
In two-eighteen there may be heard
From dawn till darkest night
'I'he clickety-click of typewriter keys—
They work with all their might.
Fhey thump and punch and hunt and pound, Their labor is unceasing;
You see they plan much wealth to earn,
Some office force increasing.
Along about Christmas time the sweetest spot in the building is the kitchen. There the domestic science girls may be found engaged in every detail of the art of candy makinlg. Fondant, fudge, the mysteries of dipping—all are mastered. If jou stand in well with the cooks you may be allowed to sample some of their masterpieces.
An interesting poster series appeared in the dining-room this year. It seemed to be all about what to eat and how to eat it. That’s fine advice for the other fellow to take. Just the same, those things leave a wholesome impression, and we confess a sneaking fondness for pills that come in such interesting jelly as these poster-preachments do.
There was a time this year when most of the Seniors would have gladly changed places with the most insignificant Freshmen. That time was those weeks of suspense and agony that resulted from certain communications from the State Department. All’s well that ends well, but one scare like that is quite enough, thank you.
Did you think that because that mild little sophomore girl you pass on the central stairway every day between the third and fourth periods carried a microscopic iiat she was necessarily property manager for her dramatic art class? You’re quite wrong. Yes, we agree that it is a trick hat, and one well suited to a minstrel show, but the truth is that it is a model. They do them in the sewing department. They have millinery classes up there and how the spring bonnets do blossom out along about the time the first robin is reported.
When I was young
This kind of poetry wasn’t fashionable in Greece But here and now
It seems it’s considered quite high-brow (1 learned that word from the students Who crawl in between eight and eight-thirty And rush past me at two-ten when a bell rings Somewhere)
At any rate
This stuff is easy to do And Apollo won’t fuss very much If 1 use it to tell you A few things that I have noticed
In these years- that 1 have stood here in this entrance hall At Stivers
There was a time when the Senior girls were dignified creatures
In long skirts and pompadours
They put their hair up before they graduated
1 really can’t tell the Freshmen from the Seniors They all have short hair and shorter skirts And unless I can see what books they are carrying home Which isn’t very often I can’t tell
And my old pal Caesar Augustus says he can’t either Can you ?
Hi Tige Reads Kipling
O it’s Freshy this, an’ Freshy that, an’ “Freshy, don’t get gay,”
But it’s “Thank you, loyal Freshman,” when there’s debts they want to pay.
Any Soph, the Seventh Period
I went into the dining-room to load with food my tray, The serving-girl she up an’ says, “We’re out o’ food to-day.”
Oh, girls are girls, and boys are boys, and never the twrain shall meet, But when they pass along the hall—then stolen words are sweet.
When Burke’s last point has been mastered and you’ve argued your talk to its end. When the shyest “unknown” has been conquered and the last line of Virgil is penned, You shall pass, and, faith, you deserve it, get “A” for once in your life,
For you are a dignified Senior; you’ve weathered four long years of strife.
We’ve roasted the verdant Freshman, we’ve chastised the Sophomore,
We’ve praised the lofty Senior, though he’s tried our temper sore;
We’ve boldly bluffed our teachers—we hope they’ll let us pass—
And now we think they deserve it—three cheers for the JUNIOR CLASS!
