THE SENIOR CLASS
"Beauty is but a vain and doubt-
A shining glass, that vadeth sud-
A flower that dies, when first it
' 'gins to budg
A brittle glass, that's broken pre-
A doubtful good, a gloss, a glass,
Lost, vaded, broken, dead within
It is not our purpose to make
this book beautiful with the kind of
beauty that fadeth suddenly. We
care not, if, when put on exhibition
with similar ones, it takes no prize.
Our purpose is something deeper,
something less worldly than beauty.
We only desire to give the students
of Burnham something that is a
part of their life, a memory of days

They call themselves the faculty,
We know them just as teachers
And oftimes in the schoolday life
They're mighty 'nigh to preachers.
Sometimes they're nice as nice can be,
Sometimes they're nowheres near it,
They always wear the same bright smile,
Although we sometimes fear it.
"It,s, Harold, spit your gum out, now,"
And "Mabel, don't you whisper,
Spud, you turn around this way
Or you'll go to the oflice, Mister."
Each has his own pet action,
We've seen it many times,
And we either hate or love it,
For it has its own little sign.
But we truly love our teachers,
As model pupils should,
And we'd always do our lessons,
If we had the time and could.
Now, we're leaving here as Seniors,
And We want to tell the rest,
You may look the whole world over
Burnham's faculty is best.

T. R. HERSH
Suyw'ri'u1c11,flc11,t of Schools
Mr. Hersh, as superintendent, has a per-
sonal interest in every student, and because
of this interest he is deeply concerned as to
the welfare of each one. A strong upright
character, and a sense of justice in his deal-
ings with the students connnands their re-
spect. VVith this respect is a sense of being
able to trust, and so pupils go to Mr. Hersh
asking for and receiving sound practical
advise about their questions.
CHARLES L. SMITH
As principal of the school, Mr. Smith is
thrown in close contact with the student
body and how practical and beneficial that
contact has been. He has a keen sense of
humor which makes his classes very in-

Senior Class History
HE drizzling rain had made it almost impossible to find onels
way through the streets. I wondered whether I would arrive
at the station in time to make my train. Gripping my bag
more firmly in my hand, I threaded my way through the crowd
5415-ff-6135 as quickly as I could. I finally left the murky street to enter
the brightly-lighted depot. I rushed about frantically trying to find my
train. "Trains are twenty-five minutes late," some gentleman informed
me. All my efforts wasted!
Not caring to wait so long with nothing to do, I walked over to the
bookshop. I bought the one remaining "American Magazine" and walked
back to my seat. As I idly turned the pages, I came to an article which
strangely aiected me. Something seemed vaguely familiar about the
pictures illustrating that article. What! could. I believe my eyes?
Wasn't that the picture of old Burnham as it looked in 1931? And there on
the steps stood some of our graduating class! I looked at the title. It was
"Excerpts from the Autobiography of M-, a highly quoted authority.
I hastily read the Iirst part of the composition telling of his early boy-
hood. As I scanned the rest of the tale my eye became fixed upon this
statement, "All my success in life,', said the millionaire, "I owe to one thing
-the foundation that was built during my high school career. It is won-
derful to be able to recall the things that we did in those days. Especially
vivid is the Freshman class meeting when we chose Mabelle Lathrop, presi-
dent with Paul Double, secretary and Gerald Lake, treasurer. We man-
aged to keep Mr. Moscoe as class advisor for two years.
Everyone had a fine vacation, coming back to start our Sophomore
year with Naomi Curtis as president, Mabelle Lathrop, secretary and
Mildred Carroll, treasurer. Several of us took part in the operetta pre-
sented by the Glee Clubs.
The old swimming pool became the rendevous of most of us until
late in September. In that third year we elected Miss Kille as class
advisor, Viola Jolley as president, Harold Pearson as secretary, and Don
Felt as treasurer. I can still recall the royal times we had rehearsing for
"Peggy and the Pirate" and the Junior play. With all these accomplish-
ments we were granted our annual vacation.
Summer quickly fled. The fourth and final year of our high school
life had come. We all assembled in Miss Bickelhaupt's small room at the
foot of the stairs and chose Woodrow Edinger, presidentg Alma Matzing-
er, secretary, Paul Double, treasurer, and Miss Kille and Miss Bickelhaup,t
class advisors. Most of us are still marvelling at the beauty of the banquet
with which the Juniors honored usi.
eeelleee eeelleee. The shrill whistle of the approaching train startled
me. I quickly jumped up and grabbed my bag, dropping the magazine to
"All aboardl' the conductor shouted.

What The Future Holds In Store
As I hurried along the dusty road which leads to Bhiwandi, a small
town near Bombay, I was suddenly confronted by a native beggar known
as Kala Miraj. I felt very sympathetic as I gazed upon the misshapened
body, the wisplike beard, and the blazing eyes.
"Mem-sahib," he said, "will you help a poor, old man whom the gods
have frowned upon ?"
I learned that he was selling small, brass idols and boxes of incense
for a few annas. I bought one of each and hurried on.
That evening as I sat alone my thoughts suddenly returned to the
fantastic little idol. I crossed the tiger-skin carpet to the table and light-
ed it. As I sat watching the smoke rise like silver ribbons, I beheld a
A group of ladies had assembled before me to hold some kind of
a meeting. When their chairman rose I recognized her as Clara Tack. I
also saw the familiar faces of Miss Margaret Tschudy and Edna Lievens.
From their gestures, and the charts before them I decided that the purpose
of the society was to foster the more humane treatment of Austin cars.
With a sigh, I watched the vision fade. Then I realized another had
taken its place. This was in a hospital ward. As I looked into the kind
and gentle faces of two nurses, I recognized Jessie Allen and Marion Box.
A moment later they were joined by Dr. Edinger. In spite of his black
mustache, it took me but a moment to recognize Charles.
The third vision showed a group of people digging for what I judged
to be Captain Kidds hidden treasure. No, I was wrong. They are digg-
ing for King Tut. I can see the mighty pyramids looming behind them.
Among the group I see Ruth Wilson, Alma Matzinger and Jean Gray all
ardent students of archeology.
By this time the scenes of India and my home have slipped from me
and I eagerly watch for more of those nearest my heart. Next, I get a
glimpse of the domestic life of Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Shanley. I realize
that they are discussing their next door neighbors, the quarrelsome
Browns. Helen is saying-I might add she is the former Helen Searles
-that she actually believes the Browns live to fight. She goes on to ex-
plain that she fights to live. However, from their contented faces, I am
sure Raymond has proved to be a very good husband.
The next scene takes place in the Metropolitan studio, where a pro-
duction entitled, "The Forbidden Paradise", is being made. In spite of
her dress with a train, which is the newest fad, I soon see that the
leading lady is the beautiful Mildred Carroll. The hero is the broad-
shouldered, handsome Woodrow Edinger.
Then I see a lawn party in Mrs. Felt's front yard. Among the large
number gathered here I see Mrs. Viola Feltls sister-in-law Ruth, Miss
Mable Kubitz, and Miss Glendora Knepper. udging from their faces a
merry time was had by all.
Next, I see a man with a large black hat and coat lapels hiding his
face. After looking both ways, he turns and dives into the alley. Sure
AA.Y.ft.Y..f -fx., du.,-2 , -vi
enough! He is shadowing someone. Later he removes his disguise and
Ijrecognize, none other, than the human blood hound--Detective Robert
The next scene shows Miss America receiving congratulations from
everyone. She has just been presented with a new trophy of her beauty.
It doesn't take me a moment to recognize her laughing eyes and lovely curls
as those of Miss Mabelle Lathrop.
Next I see a ship weathering a terrific typhoon in the East China Sea
near Singapore. A smaller ship has already dashed against the rocks and
is sinking. The careful management, however of Captain Hendrickson
saves 'his ship and later the crew of the sunken "Adelide" is brought
aboard. Among them is Mr. John Chandler who represents the Empire
Tea Company in Ceylon.
From here I am taken to a court house where a man is being tried
for murder. As the jury files in I recognize Velma Woodward and Wilma
Green. I watch with bated breath to catch the verdict. It is but one
word "innocent" and everyone jumps up to congratulate the plaintiff's
lawyer Mr. Norman Ruff.
Then I see the veteran of a thousand gridiron battles-Harold Pear-
son. However, he has retired and now is America's ambassador to Russia.
Next I am taken to a broker's office. He is anxiously watching the
ticker as the stock has fallen. However, as the anxiety leaves his face I
am led to believe that it was a false alarm. The broker, John Rothfuss,
is talking to his private secretary, Mabel Kennedy.
The familiar brick structure-dear old Burnham High-next appears
before my vision. It has grown to many times its former size as Sylvania
is now a flourishing city. Among the faculty members are Miss Naomi
Curtis who has charge of the commercial department, Miss Lucille Dor-
cus, the new public speaking teacherg and Miss Elinor Benton, English and
Latin teacher. She has charge of the Annual also.
Then I see a man sitting in his study writing. I soon learn that he
is Lavern Carr working on his greatest epic entitled "The Surrender".
This refers to a proposal and acceptance and not to a war. Beside him
is the great Philosopher, Paul Double.
Among the many strange faces in Cape Town I recognize Raymond
Zmuda, who is the owner of several large diamond mines and is very
Then I see Luanna Avery among a group of tenor singers at the
Paramount Theatre in Toledo, a small suburb of Sylvania.
Bending over a blue print, I see Andy Zmuda as industrious as ever,
working on a canal which is to join the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea.
Last, but not least, I see the interior of a large Opera House in Colo-
gne, Germany. The music moves the audience to tears. I recognize the
director as Miss Frances Parker.
All too soon the vision vanishes. I see that the smoke has ceased and
the small flame in the idol has died. My happy dreams are over, but in
my heart I shall jealously guard them forever.

Sis-s-s-s! Don't be afraid and think that this is the beginning of a
fearful tale. No, it is nothing of the sort. It is simply the escaping gas
of a giant dirigible as it slowly settles to the ground. ' On the huge gondola
are the words, "Class of '32". The mammoth bag itself is painted gold,
while in big black iiaring letters, from nose to tail, is the inscription,
"Diplomas or Bust". On the opposite side is the name, "Spirit of Burn-
Now let us turn our attention to the interior of the craft as it landed
after its first successful flight to Burnham. Everything is a-bustle as the
boys and girls who are the passengers try to collect their books, pencils,
pens, and other tools of the trade they are about to engage in. A door on
one side opens, and out they come. Following the last one is the pilot, T.
R. Hersh, and co-pilot, W. B. Walsh.
At our destination at last! School life promptly began. ,Although
very muddled up at Hrst in getting to our classes, we finally settled down
and faithfully pegged away at our studies until the end of the year. Then,
with happy hearts, we sailed away to the land of vacation for a brief rest.
In 1927 we came back, but this time as eighth graders. We began the
year by electing Miss Schroeder, class advisory Eloise Comstock, president 3
Hilda Randall, vice-presidentg Cathryn Comstock, secretary, and Hazel
Portman, treasurer. Two class parties, the Hallowe'en and April Fool's,
were very much enjoyed. Several picture shows were sponsored by the
class this year.
Ho-Hurnm ---. ' '
Another vacation flown by. This year to let the world know we were
still struggling along, we proceeded to elect Mr. Smith, Class advisor,
Donald Eff, presidentg Eloise Comstock, vice-president, Cathryn Com-
stock, secretary, and Hazel Portman, treasurer. This year a New Year's
party was the gala event.
After a prolonged vacation we returned to find a line addition being
built to our already beautiful school. This year we had a leadership that
proved to be more masculine than any preceding it. The cabinet contain-
ed Mr. Moscoe, class advisor, Donald Eff, president, Eloise Comstock, vice-
presidentg Howard Haise, secretary, and Glenn Barricklow, treasurer.
The girls, under the direction of Miss Gordon, organized a club called the
"PepperetteS" to help the boys and girls win the various athletic games.
Out on a vacation, and away to Mars .
Again we returned to our strenuous work as Juniors. We elected a
capable and eflicient group who could pilot us through one of our best
years. Miss Schroeder and Eloise Comstock were elected respectively to
the offices of class advisor and president, with Howard Haise, vice-presi-
dentg Jerry Hooker, secretary, and Robert Hesselbart, treasurer. This
year we are to sponsor several worth-while events, among which are the
J -Hop, J unior-Senior Banquet, the school paper, fBm'nl1.am Student
Printsl , and many others. .

Lucy fbrightyb: Now back in the seventh grade everything was
easy. Even you got out of your exams.
Jack: Yeah, the only reason you got through was 'cause you were
teacher's pet. Creflectivelyj Let's see, Leroy Fritz was president that year,
and Melvin Wandt, vice-president, and-Say, who were the rest of 'em?
Lucy: Well-I think Lawrence Marsh was secretary 5 Rose Eastman,
treasurer, and Miss Disher, our class advisor.
Jack: Then what did we do in the eighth grade?
Lucy: Oh, I don't know. I have such a lot to remember now, it's
hard to recall what's past.
Jack: Well, I bet I've a better memory than you have. Elizabeth
Gray was president, Doris Double, secretary-treasurerg and Miss Schroeder
class advisor. We had some parties and sold ice cream bars, and ballons,
and operated a grab bag at the carnival to raise money. Gosh, how we
raised it, too. There, what about that? CThere is triumph in his voice.J
Lucy: I can do better than that. Now last year Florine Parker was
president, Alice White, vice-president-she moved away last winter, did
you know? But yes, you would. You were sick for weeks afterward.
Helen Ensign was secretary-treasurer and Miss Fairchild our whiz-bang
class advisor. That Hallowe'en party we had and especially the hardtime
party in the spring-weren't they fun?
Jack: Yes-but I had the best time when we went to Walbridge Park.
Lucy: Um-yes, I forgot about that--almost. I couldn't possibly
forget when you went on the figure eight right after stuffing yourself full
of peanuts and pickels and potato chips, and everything else. My you were
sick-most of the afternoon, too. Now I never do anything like that!
Jack: Oh no! Seems to me I remember that you were the one who got
so hysterical in King Tut's Tomb.
Lucy: Forget it! How did you ever learn such a big word as
Jack Cpuffing up proudlyl : Oh, it's due to Miss Disher in History,
don't you know. She makes you look up everything, so I just do what she
wants me to do, like the good boy I am.
Lucy: Yes, you do. Huh, why didn't you use 'em when you gave that
sales talk to the class about raising money by buying pins?
Jack fchanging the subject againj : I say, Renald Heilner made a
darned good class president this year didn't he? And Edward Brown as
vice-president and Bob Hollister, secretary-treasurer were dandies, too.
That Hallowe'en party we had last fall, wasn't it the berries?
Lucy: I should say it was. I thought our play, "Safety First", in
April was a scream. fThen sharplyb Jack, will you take your feet off that
good chair of Mother's? Just look at those scratches!
Jack: Aw, those were there before.
Lucy: They were not.
J ack: Were too.
Mother fcoming to the doorj : Children, stop that bickering! Jack,
go mow the lawn. Lucy, come help me. CThey leave reluctantlyj.

"Oh grandfather do tell us about your school days won't you, please?"
"Why, yes, come to think of it I remember a few things which might interest you."
Thus the grandfather began his tale:
"In the year of 1928 I entered a school called Burnham fwhich by the way, no
longer stands, the great museum of Art takes its placej. I was a small fellow and did
not know what to do as the size of the school distressed me-compared to the size of
our little country school, but I soon get over this. As was the custom the class, we
elected officers: Miss Kalp became class advisor, Betty Cosgrove, presidentg Dale
Webb, vice-president, Charlotte McCulley, secretary, and St. Claire Deye, treasurer.

party that year and say-I can still taste that cider. In the spring the Seniors had
Commencement exercises but we, The Eighth Grade of Burnham High School, did not
get our diplomas! l ! The reason for this was never known.

Eighth Grade Class History
When We started to Burnham High as seventh graders, We were like
lost sheep. But, after a few days, we got used to the regular routine, and
no one had to be told where room 25, or room 36, or any other room Was.
Our election of officers made Stanley Hesselbart president, and Mr. Ells-
worth and Miss Gordon, our class advisors. We gave a party on St. Pat-
rick's day, which everyone declared a success. Some passed, and a few
failed, in the final exams of the year.
When we returned in September, 1930, we were not the lost sheep of
the seventh grade. At our election, Evelyn Fuhrer was chosen presidentg
Stanley, vice-president, and Margaret McGuire, secretary-treasurer. A
masquerade party was held on the night before HalloWe'en. There were
many comical costumes and the party Was a real success. The first of
1931, the eighth grade class sponsored a picture "Deliverance", with the
help of Miss Barron and Mr. Ellsworth, our class advisors. We are hoping
no one will fail the eighth grade this year because we expect to be Fresh-
men and want the class to be bigger and better than ever next year.
Seventh Grade Class History
It was in the year 1960, and Abbas Parva, who was then living in
India, was about to tell his grandchildren a story. "Ah! Yes!", one
could hear him say, "It was a group of happy children, best beloved. They
called themselves the Seventh Grade. It was in the autumn of 1930 that
they entered Burnham High School. As you may have imagined, my fond
hearers, they were very bewildered at first, but after a time, they became
accustomed to the ways of Burnham.
They decided they wanted leaders-leaders like our Maharajah and
his aides, best beloved. So one day they met to choose these leaders. As
their president they chose Priscilla. Westg as vice-president, Benton Hineg
as secretary-treasurer, Jeanne Eastman. They frequently needed advice,
and they chose as their advisors Miss Scott and Mr. Lucas. Near the
bewitching day of Hallowe'en they had a party, Where all had a very
pleasurable time. Later came Christmas when all were very happy, and
after that examinations when all were very sad. The rest of the year
they worked harder than before. Then came the dreaded examinations
once more and many were, once more, unhappy. However, they soon
brightened as they realized that school was over for a time and they could
visit the merry Land of Summer once more. And now, best beloved, I
must go," concluded Abbas Parva, the Wise.

THE WAWONAISSA LITERARY SOCIETY
This Literary Society was organized in October, 1930. Hilda Randall was elect-
ed President and Charles Edinger, who succeeded Hilda as President after her re-
signation, was chosen Vice-President. Bessie Hatherly was elected Secretary-
Sigma Sigma Lambda was chosen as the name for the society but in order to be
in accordance with an Ohio statute which prohibits Greek letter societies in high
schools, the club has accepted the name Wawonaissa. -
The purpose of Wawonaissa is to promote school spirit and develop a greater ap-
preciation of literature in high school.
This Literary Society, with Mrs. Roberts, as advisor, was organized rather late
this year. Although there have been only a few meetings, this club has a very suc-
cessful start. It has been planned to start the club anew next year.
A candy sale was held by which the society made enough money for their cut in

The new members were initiated and the club began work.
Monthly meetings were held both at the school building and private homes. The
club was much larger this year and as the old saying goes-"The more the merrier."
Good times and a greater knowledge of French were the results from the year and
the club having fulfilled its aim feels that it has completed a successful year.

The above staff was organized, with Miss Schroeder as faculty advisor, for the
purpose of issuing a school newspaper. By means of a contest "Burnham Student
Prints" was selected from several other as the best name for the paper. Issues were
published bi-monthly at the price of five cents per copy. A circulation of two hundred
was built up and fifteen issues were distributed. The staff hopes that the publication
of a school newspaper will be continued as a permanent part of Burnham's activities.

The Hi-Y started this year under the leadership of Donald Elf, presidentg Glenn
Barricklow, vice-presidentg Charles Hatherly, secretaryg Robert Hesselbart, treasurerg
and Paul Double, sargeant-at-arms. Mr. Smith, Mr. Lucas and Mr. Wood were elect-
ed faculty advisors.
At the induction ceremony eight new members were initiated.
Near the Christmas vacation the Hi-Y discontinued their meeting due to unforseen
difficulties. Lately they have been resumed.
The Hi-Y expects to hold a Spring Retreat, June 7, 8 and 9 at Camp Storer.
Slogan: To face life squarely.
Purpose: To find and give the best.
Colors: Blue and White.
The Friendship Club for girls, which is a branch of the Y. W. C. A., was formed
in Burnham High, October 14th. Miss Rank of the Toledo Y. W. C. A. explained the
principals of the club. About thirty members enrolled. Mildred Carroll was then
elected presidentg Hilda Randall, vice-presidentg Lucille Niles, secretaryg and Frances
Parker, treasurer. Glendora Knepper became chairman of the social committee 5 Mabel
Kubitz of the serviceg and Eloise Comstock of the program. Mrs. Wilcox is the town
advisor and Miss Gordon the school advisor. Plans were made for the ensuing year
and an opening banquet was decided upon.
This banquet was a great success. Several representatives from Toledo were
present. In mid-winter a very clever little valentine party was given for the Hi-Y
boys. In the spring several representatives attended the Friendship banquet in Toledo.
As a part of their service program, the girls supplied one family with food at
Thanksgiving time and at Christmas, cooperating with the Hi-Y, they aided two
families with food, clothing and toys. For Easter the Girls made Easter bskets which
were given to the children of St. Vincent's hospital.
Altogether, a very profitable year has been spent and we are looking forward to
even greater accomplishments in our second year.

"Public Speaking Night." What does that remind me of? Oh yes, I know. It
brings back to my mind the wonderful program that was presented to the public by
Public Speaking Class of '31.
We received many compliments on the program from the people who attended it.
It was a variety program. There were readings, impersonations, and one-act plays.
To put an exciting finish to the show, Miss Fairchild, the director, and Mr. Wood put
on a litlte sketch entitled "A Pair of Lunaticsf' Quite appropriate, eh? Ha, Ha.
I can still see Mildred Carroll in "Silence Please", as the wife-the kind every man
dreams about-and sometimes gets, That, a litle table clock, Jean Gray fthe roman-
tic typel, and Helen Searles fthe singer of lullabies and teller of "doggie" storiesj will
always remain imprinted upon my mind.
Do you remember Frances Parker, Ruth Felt, Luanna Avery, and Wilma Green
in their readings? They were simply a scream!
Edna Leivens certainly can act the part of an old-fashioned farmer's wife. Maybe
that's some indication of the future. Oh well, time will tell.
Then there were Mabelle Lathrop, Mabel Kubitz, Glendora Knepper, Raymond
Shanly, John Chandler, Mabel Kennedy, Jessie Allen, Paul Double, O'Nita Hendrickson,
Melvin Dauer, Ruth Wilson, Clara Tack, and Velma Woodward, all acting the part for
which they were best suited.

The climax ol' the school year "Rose of the Southland", presented by the Senior
class, proved to be a huge success.
The play revealed the cares and troubles involved in an aristocratic southern home
because family portraits were taken out of their frames and sold to pay the doctor who
was trying to save the loving father's eyes.
Rose Dorinda, a lovely southern girl, assuming all the family responsibilities, and
makiirg a good home for her adored father and younger brother, was played by Mildred

Marnmy Evclina-Luanna Avery, is a lovable old southern mamlny of the old
school. She is incurably superstitious.
Grant Lee, a progressive young cetton grower, and big brother to Rose by self
appointment, was played by Melvin Dauer.

middle age. She is sophisticated and charming.

On February fourth the Junior Class presented its annual play. As the name,
"Meet Uncle Sally", suggests-a young college student, Sally Sherwood fEloise
Comstockj, impersonated the Uncle Bill of Ben and Betty Blayne CDonald Eff and
Cathryn Comstockb throughout the greater part of the evening. Very comical and
unusual circumstances arose from this "doubling", especially when Aunt Dorinda
fHi1da Randallb and Miss Muggs fEsther Titgemeierj did their bit at making love-
one time to the exasperated Sally and another time to the real millionaire, Uncle Bill
fWillard Goistj. The cockney butler fWillard Dixonj and the Swedish cook lMary
Ellen Applej. made many laughs during the evening. Of course, when Aunt Dorinda
accepted the proposal C?'?J of Uncle Bill, she heartily approved of the marriages of
Ben and Betty Blayne to Bob and Elaine Durant QI-Ioward Haise V and Geraldine
Hookerj. Affairs straightened out to the satisfaction both of the lovers and of the
We appreciate the fact that without the assistance of our advisor, Miss Helen

On Friday evening, April 24, the Sophomore class presented, "Safety First", a
farce--comedy. Miss Margaret Fairchild directed the play. There were ten in the
cast, as follows:

Elmer started everything when he announced his engagement to a Turkisk fortune
teller-Zuleika! Jack, Elmer's cousin and Jerry, Jack's best friend, try to persuade
Zuleika not to marry Elmer. Policeman raid the place, Jack and Jerry are held as
witnessesg Jack assaults the policeman, Zuleika's father, Abou Ben Macha, is hot on
the trail with his long knife, the girls, Mabel, Jack's wife and Virginia, Jerry's fiance,
can't understand the absence of Jack and Jerry, Mary Ann, the Irish maid, has many
comforting ideas to offer as to the whereabouts of the young men until she finds her
fiance, McNutt, the policeman, is also involved in the tangle of romance.
The extemporaneous explanations offered by the boys for their thirty days absence
while in jail, the terrible Turk and the romance of Mary Ann and McNutt all tend to
produce a very lively, humorous farce-comedy.

The combined glee clubs of Burnham High School demonstrated the experiences
of three Americans in Persia. They presented the operetta, "In the Garden of the
Shah," which contained many beautiful dances and songs.
The leading roles were carried by Geraldine Hooker and "Bill" Ames with Mar-
jorie Cooper and John Rothfuss as their respective partners. The hard-hearted Shah
was well portrayed by Paul Double and the conceited Sheik by William Huber. The
comedy roles were played by Frances Parker and Norman Ruff.
Miss Barron, directed the music, Miss Fairchild, the dramatic work, and Miss Kille
and Miss Smith, the dances. Hazel Portman was business manager and Harold Pear-
son was stage manager.

The Letter Club was organized in Burnham High for the purpose of raising the
standard of the letter B. The officers elected were: Woody Edinger, presidentg Nor-
man Ruff, vice-presidentg and Harold Pearson, secretary-treasurer. A constitution
was drawn up, including the provision that all members would have the power to remove
all letters that were not earned.
During the year a very interesting chapel program was given, initiating all the
new members. The program consisted of two speeches, given on the standard of let-
ters and a mock trial, sentencing the prisoners fthe new membersj to various duties
which had to be performed on the stage, much to their dismay and to the joy of the
The letter Club has had many very interesting meetings during the year and at one
time sold arm bands in order to raise money for several occasions.

Our next game was booked with Swanton, a team almost first class.
Although they defeated us 25-0 our boys put up a good fight against one of
strongest lines of Fulton County and we felt that it put the boys in great
condition for the fight on the following Friday. Brown injured his leg
but we are glad to say that it was not as serious as it seemed at that time.
The "Wildcats" played their greatest rival, Whitmer, on the following
Friday and the merchants and townspeople gave the boys all the support
that could ever be asked for. Up until the last few minutes of play we
had those "Whitmer fighters" worried but another touchdown made the
final score 13-6. Two fire fighting teams met that day. We congratulate
Burnham played Point Place their next game and although they were

Our last game was to be with Petersburg but due to an epidemic
the game was forfeited.
Our football season ended with regret for three of our first string
men, Capt. Pearson, Woodie Edinger and Charlie Edinger. These boys
were Seniors and were three of the greatest players that Burnham will
ever find. Although we gave them letters, these three boys because of
their great work deserve even more than that.
There are some great players in the Freshman, Sophomore and
Junior classes and Burnham should have a fine team next year.

game won until the last minute when Roberts of Maumee sunk a basket
from the middle of the floor making a final score of 19-18.

On the next Friday, February 6, we played Monclova and with Sonny
dropping eight field goals, we managed to win 29-26.
Before the greatest crowd ever assembled in Burnham's auditorium,
we were again defeated by Whitmer the County champs. The score was
40-25. Woodie Edinger led in scoring with seven points.
Our next game was with Holland, here and we defeated them 20-14.
EE led the scoring with eight points.
On February 27 we met Whitmer in the first game of the tournament.
They defeated us by the small lead of 31-26. Boswell led with a score of
In the consolation we met Waterville and managed to win by 32-30.
Several over-times were played. Boswell led with fourteen points.
On the following Monday we went to Point Place to play the final
game in the tournament and were defeated with a final score of 32-21.
We fought hard but to no avail.
This year we are losing Cook and Woodie Edinger and old Burnham
will surely miss these players. We are glad to say, however, that many
of our first string men are still with us.

The Class Calendar
Spring is the time of all growing and green things, fresh and verdant in their
newness to all life. What more fitting then, that the Freshmen in this green time of
his life should enter school. The March winds and the April showers were very
necessary to the budding of the shoots of knowledge in the Freshmen wind, and so, we,
green and sweet in our dewy innocence, received at this time the first seeds of know-
ledge and felt the first pull of the plow and the cultivation in this spring of our career.
We felt the stir of new life in our blocd and we did not realize any more than do Fresh-
men of today, how very green we were.
But the March winds and the April showers brought forth an abundance of May
flowers and the Summertime came upon us almost before we knew, so delightfully
did the one seascn blend into the other. VVe found the skies so much bluer and the sun
shone warmly upon us. We had stuck our heads high enough to see nearly as much
of it as we imagined we could. They were not yet very heavy with their accumulation
of wisdom and so did not droop with weight. But our flowers were unfolding little by
little. We were slowly but surely coming out into the light of day.
But verily in school life, even as in nature, "leaves have their time to fall and
flowers to wither" and the autumn of our day came as soon as we were ready. Very
brilliant was cur foliage that year, very rich was our fruitage as the little buds of the
Freshmen year grown into flio-wcrs of Sophomcre development became the richer.
more necessary and more satisfying fruit of autumn. It was indeed the harvest of
our early planting, the reaping of knowledge and the results of all our dreams, hopes
and efforts. The glow of our radiant knowledge flushed the whole year with a mellow-
ness of sunset splendor. And it brought into it the glad Thanksgiving of November,
thankful we knew so much, thankful we were no longer Freshmen or Sophomoresg
thankful that we could so soon be Seniors and achieve so much.
Even in this stage we passed cn into eternity. The fruit was all gathered and
stored away within our memories. With the snows of all the past in hoary wisdom
upon our heads, we welcome the approach of Winter. The flowers have long since de-
cayed, as we outgrew thcm and the seeds cf the new life to be were stored away be-
