NOTHER June has arrived and with it the "Reflector" of the
Three Rivers High School. Although the work of supervision
has been in the control of the Class of '14, we feel that our efforts
would have been fruitless, had it not been for the cooperation of the
faculty and student body, as critics and helpers: we can also attribute
much of our success to the merchants and advertisers who have so
kindly patronized us.
Some changes have been made in this publication, which we hope
you, our readers, will approve. It has been our effort to make the
"Reflector of 1914" a true representative of the work and events of
the year '13-'14.
When in future years many of the bonds uniting the members of
this Class have been broken, may this, a then worn volume, serve to
bring back the many happy days spent in T. R. H. S.
We now present the "Reflector," but with no apologies. We
have tried to make it the best possible. May it please you.

The reason firm, the temperate will,
Endurance, foresight, strength and skill
LL great events and achievements are usually recorded
in history fthat is if they are truly greatl , therefore,
we, the Class of '14 having achieved the title of
Seniors feel constrained to relate our trials and tribulations
so that those coming after may realize our struggles-'? and
be ruled accordingly.
The Class of 1914 first gained prominence and fame the
day they entered the H. S. as Rhinies with thirty-five mem-
bers enrolled in' their class. They elected class oHCicers and
"Bill" Ellet was chosen unanimously as president. This
year, being our first, passed very smoothly and peacefully.
We closed the 'year by having a straw ride out to Fisher's
Lake. This was our first class picnic and we have since looked
forward to it as an annual event.
In September we were re-established in the "Halls of
Knowledge" as Freshmen and were initiated into the mysteries
of Latin and Algebra. During this year our class was in-
creased by the appearance of Doris Arney, Fern Bingman,
Lorena Dimmick, Dorothy Dunn, George Fisher, Mildred and
Grace Garl, Earl and Hazel Gregg, Thelma King, Myrtle
Louks, Russell Mann, Leah Roys, Coleta Sassaman, John
Shafer, Clarence and Nettie Smith, Jennie Shern, Lulu Sch-
weitzer, Esther Swanson, Alto and Elta Schug, Alva and
Maude Willoughby, Earl Zander, Ivy Zerby and Katherine
Zierle. Our class, by this time, could boast of fifty-eight
members. We closed this year as before with a straw ride
to Fisher's Lake. When we started for the lake, we had the
promise of a nice day, but immediately after dinner the "rains
descended and the Hoods come and beat upon the cottage"
where we fled for shelter, but we heeded it not, for while
waiting for the cessation of the wind and rain, we played
games, roasted frankforts and had a general good time.
After completing our Freshman course, we were ready
for the second stage of development, namely that of Soph-
mores. We felt rather forsaken on finding that sixteen .of
our classmates had departed and only three new pupils were
enrolled, namely, Marie Rohrbaugh, Harley Skeer and Harold
Sevison. This year we were introduced into the arts of
Botany by Miss Shimek. Was ever a subject so enjoyable
and entertaining? The long Botany trips that were taken
were a source of pleasure as well as instruction. At this
time we had our "famous clash" with the Juniors, because of
our colors. They insisted on having green and white for
their colors even though they knew we had chosen them
in our Freshman year for the remainder of our H. S. career.
It was finally settled satisfactorily-for us at least. At
the picnic this year some of our boys showed decided pre-
ference for some of the Centreville "bunch" who were pic-
In September, 1912, we gathered our remaining forces
and started our career as Juniors. This year we felt as
though we could conquer the world if necessary. We were
joined at this time by four new students, Jennie Balch, Jean
Cummings, Clarence Carrow and Alice Brewer. We did
something in oratory this year. Thelma King, our repre-
sentative, won the medal from her opponent, Hilda Coates,
of the Senior class.
During this period of our history the famous football
match was won, the Juniors standing the rest of the school.
Arthur Knapp and Earl Gregg were our athletes and firmly
believed in "doin' others before others did them". Melba
Wood and Ella Stoldt contributed their share in athletics also,
and we firmly believe that the H. S. owes a goodly share of
her basket ball victories to these two exponents of our class.
One of the important events of this year was the banquet held
in honor of the Senior class. It was the "first big affair"
our class had ever had so of course we wished to do it 'up
right'. Two of the place cards were accidentally? laid side
by side, fRussell's and Myrtle'sJ. Miss Mulheron gave as a
response, a piece of poetry, original, which was received with
enthusiasm by all. Paul Brosy, when asked, thought it neces-
sary to play selections from "Lohengrin's Wedding March"
in honor of Miss Krogen, who was thinking seriously of leav-
ing our T. R. H. S. Everyone reported a good "feed" and a
Finally by passing through many difficulties, we have at
last earned the title of Seniors, Seniors to contrive and exe-
cute, to attain and accomplish the unfinished work lying be-
This year we were joined by Grace James and Dorothy
Hazen. Several important events have happened thus far
during the year. First of all, we decided to publish a Re-
flector, as necessary to the dignity of our class, if we did not
wish to be outdone by our predecessors. Among our numer-
ous class meetings we elected a new class president, Earl
Zander, who took the place of "Bill" Ellet, who had had this
oflice for four years. Earl immediately took the reins of
government, smoothed out the difficulties and now the class
is as peaceful as heretofore. During the month of March our
class presented to the public "Tommy's Wife", a fascinating
little play which was received with approval by the public.
The "Zander-Huss" 'stunt' was particularly appreciated by
the audience. In June we gave another play so that other
members of the class were allowed to show their talent along
this line. Now as our four years of H. S. work have drawn
to a close, we look back and think of the many good ,times we
have had here, also that after this year all will be scattered,
each to his own work, yet the reminiscenses of T. R. H. S.
will always be, "strong and sweet and human and eternally
optimistic." As we leave our beloved H. S. which has meant
so much to us, and as we part each to his chosen work, may
we still lwelup to our motto, "Be not simply good but good
for something." -Ina Helpin.

We have worked and worked so hard So we went through every year
With all our might,
We have studied, we have labored,
Day and night,
That we might be as our motto,
"Good for Something."
When our Freshmen year was o'er,
To be Seniors was our aim
Till the lastg
On our way at length to be
"Good for Something."
On and on,
Striving toward the goal we've reached
That is won.
Still We're hoping we may be
"Good for Something."
Up and onward we shall go,
Shirking nothing, ever climbing,
Striving that we all may be
"Good for Something."
When we walk into the future
May We do our level best
So that all the world may say
We're "Good for Something."

The Sophomores of 1914
There once was a class whose school was a shoe,
It had so many members it didn't know what to do,
So it placed in divisions the pupils of this class,
Sent some to the Toe Pad, the shoe kept the last.
Now these noble Sophomores had won their own fame,
In study, school-spirit, and athletics, the same,
For they, like their motto, are the teacher's delight,
"Do your part, and We will do ours all right."
And blest were these Sophomores with a teacher so dear
Who taught them the Gallic wars never to fear:
Though of Latin Composition they dreamed all the night,
They were sure in the morning to translate it right.
A most jolly teacher of History they had,
Who for the life of her couldn't stay "mad",
For she loved the dear boys and the girls all so well
That even the worst ones she wouldn't expel.
A "Baker" by name, but mathematician by trade
Who on her Geom. classes oft made a raid,
Was a teacher who with her original wit
Made with students and faculty quite a big hit.
So well versed is this class in Shakespeare and Tennyson
That another class with them could stand no comparison:
All due to their training by a teacher exacting
Who considers them "stars" in "Julius Caesar" acting.
Now this class at the Toe Pad had caused a sensation
By gaining perfection in each recitation:
When typewriters clicked or some one told a story
The teacher and Sophs. reached the height of their glory
So happily they lived, this class in a shoe
Who had so many pupils it didn't know what to do:
And they're there with their pennant, as well can be seen
Then three "rahs" for the Sophomores of 1914 I

CLASS OF l9l7 AS FRESHMEN
Twent Years Hence
S THE train neared the station of old Three Riversl
sat up, for I was nearing the old home town after
nearly ten years sojourn in the far East as the
Slimmest Lady Living. The car stopped with its wonted jerk,
and I alighted to have" my bag grasped by a very small porter
and my body pushed into a taxi almost before I could say
In a few minutes the car drew up before a beautiful
building which I recognized as the Three Rivers House. The
proprietor came bustling out, and lo, it was G. T. Lott, my
old classmate! He ushered me in, and during luncheon he
told me more of the last twenty years than I could have
thought of in as much time. After I had eaten of the dainty
repast, I tore myself away from his conversation and sauntered
out to visit some of the old land marks and my friends.
A little farther down the street a huge sign greeted my
eyes, which read thus: "Shoemaker Laundry. Bring your
collars here and they'll be as white as snow."
As I stood gazing with admiration at that wonderful
sign, I wondered if he were the old classmate who was always
such a "shark" in Latin. Just then a huge horse attached
to a carriage decidedly the worse for the wear, in which sat
a fair young man, with the queerest expression on his face,
ran frantically past, to the evident delight of the sightseers,
who kept shouting, "Dr, Andrews on another of his great
cases! You know he's the one who makes the Anti-Fat
Preparation for our citizens."
I still wandered aimlessly along, and at last caught sight
of the great building wherein so many of us had struggled
and suffered with the "Golden Opportunities of Youth." As
I stood gazing doubtfully at that magnificent edifice, the
door opened slowly and out squeezed an aged fat man whom
Irecognized as Mr. Wiggers, who still held his position of
love and honor among the citizens of this city. Among the
teachers who now came forth were the Misses Pierce, Defen-
defer,Kaiser and a few others whose names I could not recall
They all began wending their way toward the Opera House
a beautiful structure, and I determined to follow them
On the door hung a huge sign,
JIM GOMIN'S GUNGEHT GU.

ADULTS soc CHILDREN 250
I went in, and was really pleased at the success of some of
my old acquaintances. Two of the most noticeable characters
were Mademoiselle King and Monseiur Nicholson, who trilled
their beautiful voices in some of the most popular operas of
After the concert the Misses R. Elliott and G. Lassance
mounted the platform and gave two splendid, enthusiastic
lectures on "Woman Suffrage."
The next evening an old friend and I started out to re-
new our friendship with other old time playmates, who, he
said, had all forsaken single life and were living in what is
called, "Newly Wed District." Sure enough there were at
least tive square miles of small rose-covered cottages, each
with its two or more occupants as happy as doves. They
were all glad to see us, but did not urge us to stay, so after
strolling about for several hours and vainly trying to make my
friend propose I abandoned all hopes, and next morning, vow-
ing never to return, as everyone seemed perfectly contented
without me, I took my departure for the East, to resume my
position with "Brown's Living Wonders" as the "Slimmest
Lady Living." Lucy Campbell.

Spring is coming, spring is now here,
But it has long been on the way.
Spring can be seen in forest once drear,
Where formerly King Winter held sway.
Earth is awakening on every hand,
From her long sleep beneath the snow.
Once more appears the shimmering sand,
And pretty flowers in the grass so low.
One steps along in a very free way,
For the cold winds of winter have passed,
And something is planned for the next holiday
As the river is no longer glassed.
But seeing the schoolhouse the steps grow slow,
As quickly our memories flash back, so keen,
Where only yesterday with a book in tow,
We sought the cool grass so green.
We enter the door with a convict's look,
And meditate if it be not cruel

A Fairy-Tale of the Rhinies
Alt-Rineholl was an old castle on one of the islands in
the Rhine river. In this castle lived a Faye, or fairy, who
owned a Jewell of rare beauty. Yet it was not its beauty
which made the Jewell so valuable, but the power that lay
within it, for who ever possessed this stone could have Nfin'
Souls and live nine lives.
The Faye was a busy fairy and away from home most of
the time, so a small pullet kept guard over the Jewell. This
little custodian was called "Little Hitchcock," first because
she had a hitch in her walk-a Hart flessl man once hit her
on the leg and made her lame'-second because she could fight
as well as any game cock. When the Faye inherited this
Jewell from her mother, she had a Carter bring an immense
Drumm to the island and place it just outside the castle door,
so that Little Hitchcock might sound a warning should any-
thing ever threaten the safety of the Jewell.
A big fat Wolf lived in the Rhine forests who came often
to see Little Hitchcock. Though big and fat this Wolf was
young and jolly and the two became fast friends. One day
Little Hitchcock foolishly told Wolf about the Jewell and
showed it to him. Without warning Wolf grabbed the stone
and made off with it. But Little Hitchcock was not to be
outwitted. She ran to the big Drumm, beat on it with her
strong wings, screaming at the top of her voice. "Richie-
ker-Richie-ker-ree-ee." Then the brave little pullet flew after
Wolf and scratched his heels until he let the Jewell fall. Our
friend was badly scared by this time. Jumping into the river,
he swam for the dock on the opposite shore. This Dock beset
with Bryers but Wolf plunged through them, never stopping
until he found himself in the deep woods safe, but between
Little Hitchcock and the Bryers, badly bruised and scratched.
"That 'ere was a narrow escape," said Wolf as he paused
to take breath. Then he chuckled, "a Weiss idea, Nin'
Souls! I'll get that Jewell yet."
"What Jewell?" growled Snyder, a big dog, who suddenly
appeared before Wolf. "Hurry up, you're late."
"I'm Comin '," said Wolf meekly, for he was a little
afraid of Snyder.
"Walk faster," grumbled Snyder, "its a long Tripp to
the Stockdale and I'm hungry." .
"So am I," answered the Wolf. "'Didn't yer sister Julia
send me anything?"
"No," snapped the dog.
"But she promised to get some Krull-ers from the Mllle1"s
kitchen," snifiied Wolf, "fer Helpin' her kill det 'ere turkey
gobbler. If it hadn't Ben-fer me, he'd 'ave got away.
Saint Petre! but he was a fighter."
All at once Snyder and Wolf slipped behind some bushes
for they heard voices. In a few minutes the Miller's daugh-
ters Mae and Annis, came down the path.
"Let's eat 'em," snarled Snyder under his breath. "I'll
take the big girl and you can have the little 'un."
Now Wolf had a soft heart for pretty girls, so he stut-
tered by way of excuse, "Is she E-lean-or fat?"
"Lean," replied Snyder peering around the bushes at
"Then I don't want her," Whispered Wolf decisively.
"Sheep'1l taste a lot better. Let's hurry on." And Wolf
slunk away quickly through the bushes. Snyder followed
grumbling. He dared not attack the girls alone for Mae
carried a gun. When the two friends were out on the path
again, Wolf told Snyder about the Jewell. Snyder immedi-
ately began to plan how he might make way with Wolf and
secure the treasure for himself.
Night had come on by the time the wayfarers reached
the Stockdale where Swefitzer, a Swiss shepherd, herded his
flock. But the moon was up and spread its bright light like
one great Ray over the valley.
"I don't even see a flee, let alone a sheep," said Wolf in
disappointment after they had climbed down into the Stock-
"They're shut up in that shed over yonder. I'll go and
let 'em out. As soon as I push open the door, you blow on
this whistle and"f
"That ain't no whistle," interrupted Wolf, "I saw yer
pick up that 'ere Reed down by the mill pond."
"But I've Bitten' a hole in it and now it's a Whistle,"
explained Snyder. "Stand out there in the moonlight on one
of those Noles Where the sheep can see you. As soon as I
open the door, blow loud as ye can, and the sheep'll run
right out here into yer mouth, for they'll think the Sweitzer's
Just as Snyder got out in the open, Wolf had a thought.
"Det- Wile'r dog aint gotiv no sense. He ought'er know that
dis here whistle will wake up Sweitzer too. I'll play a joke
on det 'ere dog." Picking up the Reed, Wolf blew on it with
all his might. Suddenly a gun shot sounded in the clear
"Let 'em go Galleherlu Yapped Wolf, and his fat sides
Shook with laughter to see Snyder tearing over the pasture
toward the woods.
"P-rr-rang! Bang!" a yelp and all was over so far as
Snyder was concerned, but Wolf stopped laughing for now
the bullets were coming his way.
"Saint Petre!" mumbled Wolf in terror as he scrambled
up the bluff to get under shelter. He reached the top but
three Pierces in his left hind leg sent him tumbling down the
Bluff on the other side. There he lay moaning and groaning
until day light when a bird lighted on a log near by and
looked at him curiously.
"Ar'nt you the Wolf, who guards a bird's nest at night
from hawks down in the Rhein woods?"
The bird nodded.
"Are you the robin as owns it?"
"No, I'm the Robin-son. It is my mother's nest."
"You look like her," said Wolf, only you're redder and
more speckled like. Yes, I De-fend-er-fer I eat's the hawks."
Wolf smacked his lips and it was Long-worth his while, for he
was A-very hungry Wolf by this time.
When the Robin-son learned of Wolf's plight, he brought
some cool burdock leaves to wrap around the wounded leg.
"Bring some fibres from aN-ivy-son, to tie 'em up
with," requested Wolf. This the bird did and our hero was
soon on his Way home.
As Wolf limped along the path, he saw something all
white and fluffy under a bush.
"Dets dat ole white gander of McDonald's dat I've ben
tryin' to git s'long, asleep under dat 'ere bush." Wolf hob-
bled up to the bush as softly as he could, made a spring and
tumbled into a heap of empty feathers.
"That's a regular sell," yapped Wolf angrily as he picked
himelf up, "that's a White-sell." Wolf' laughed in Glee at
his own wit for he could not be sober very long. "But I'll
come vis-A-vis with dat ole villain yet. Dat's what Professor
McDonald says o'me when he misses anything from his poultry
yard," and Wolf grinned to himself as he trotted along.
After while Wolf came upon a little Brown tot sitting in
the middle of the path. She had been picking flowers and
lost her way, so there she sat with two withered May-bells
clutched tightly in her little hands, screaming at the top of
"Go away, you nasty Wolf" she cried-"oofee-eefoo!
I wants Rugglesln I
"Who's Ruggles?" asked Wolf, although he knew well
"He's grandpa, course! oo-ee-ee-oo!"
Gulping down his hunger, our tender hearted friend
coaxed the Brownie onto his back and carried her home. But
he took care to drop his charge before he came in sight of
the house, for Ruggles was his sworn enemy. "Dat pert
little thing never even thanked me," grumbled Wolf, scamp-
ering away as fast as his left hind leg would let him.
Some time later as Wolf was lying behind a tree rest-
ing, he noticed that a few bushes not far away moved in a
suspicious manner. Drawing near stealthily Wolf discovered
a small pony eating grass, while on the ground at some dis-
tance lay a boy taking a Knapp. Wolf recognized the boy
as a careless lad who did nothing but play at knighthood.
All day long this boy roamed the woods on his little cob, pre-
tending that he was killing dragons. So the people nick-
named him Kreger fKriegerl which means warrior in that
"Who are you?" said the cob, looking with curiosity at
"I'm a dragon," growled Wolf, trying hard to look fierce,
for he saw a chance to get a free ride home. "You're a Jay-
cob, if yer's never heard tell on me. I eats cobs, 'specially
Jafyjcobsf' At that Wolf sprang upon the pony's back.
The little animal was so frightened that he tore down the
path and never stopped until he reached the Rhein woods.
"Thank'ee little Jafylcobf' said Wolf, springing to the
ground, "Now you kin go back to yer Knapp-ing Kreger.
Tell him," here Wolf's jaws spread to a broad grin, "dat a
fierce dragon come near makin' Winnie-Wurts out o'him."
Then the Wolf disappeared behind some bushes, while the
pony flew back to his sleeping Kreger, very proud of his
great adventure, as he thought, with a dragon.
The clock in the Alt-Rineholt tower struck twelve and
awoke Wolf who was lying on the bank of the river. Al-
though aching in every limb from his recent adventures, our
hero was feeling fairly comfortable just then, and lay gazing
sleepily at Alt-Rhineholt, which even to a Wolf looked very
grand in the moonlight. Suddenly Wolf raised his head for
the castle door had swung open and there just out side the
doorway stood the Faye. She looked guardedly around for
a moment, then rose high over the tree tops and floated away
towards the woods on the opposite side of the river.
"This is the first of May,---The Faye is going to the May
dances on the Mary green off yonder. Well I 'ope you'll
have a Mary, Mary time, Mistress Fay," said Wolf gallantly.
"In the mean time I'll take another look at that 'ere Jewell."
Wolf winked knowingly to himself, then plunged into the
Alt-Rineholt was deserted. Yet there on the table in
little Hitchcock's room lay the precious Jewell. Its sapphire
blue eyes looked straight at Wolf, who forgot all about
caution when on the same table he espied a large Bole of
Rhein-wein. This he sipped to the last drop.
"I wish I had some Moore," yapped Wolf as he sprang
or rather fell, from the chair on which he had been standing.
He was feeling very wobbly now but quite gay and danced
around mocking little Hitchcock's "Richie-ker-ree-ee" as well
as a Wolf could. Then Wolf thought of the big Drumm.
He wobbled outside, took down the long sticks and, forget-
ting about the purpose of this Drumm, beat on it with all his
might, yelping at the same time, "Yap-yap-'er-ya-a."
"Saint Petre!" yelled Wolf suddenly, then his jaws
stiffened with freight. The Faye was standing right by his
side. Wolf dropped the sticks, tore over the rocks and sprang
into the water. But the Faye did not move until Wolf had
reached the middle of the streamg she then raised her wand
and waved it slowly while several islands of sticky mud ap-
pea-red in the water. These grew until their edges met and
Wolf found himself embedded in soft mud. Our poor hero
managed to keep his head and shoulders above the Maiers
for a short time, but gradually sunk deeper and deeper until
he vanished from sight.
When the sun arose on this May day, the waters of the
Rhein around Alt-Rineholt were as blue and sparkling as ever,
but the old castle was deserted. The Fay and her little cus-
todian had moved into the forest. It is said that Little
Hitchcock did not want to live any longer on the island, where
she would be continually reminded of her foolishness. "If
you cannot keep your own secrets," she was heard to say sor-
rowfully, "how can you expect others to keep them for you."
That was long ago. Alt-Rineholt is a great ruin now
and covered with ivy. The big drum has disappeared. But
once a year on the first of May soon after the tower clocks all
along the Rhein have struck twelve, night stragglers near
Alt-Rhineholt hear strange yelping sounds, which seem to
come from beneath the water. What they claim to hear is

Though this book may seem to you
Much too full of foolish things,
You just try to edit one,
Then you'll learn what joy it brings.
But I hope that you Will End,
As you read a little more,
Glimpses of the better work
To which at times our small minds soar
ONG, long ago in the morning of the world, when
the beautiful earth laughed in glee and cast forth
flowers and fruit from her bosom in rich abundance,
there lived in the fair Evening-land a maiden, beautious to
behold. So fair was she, that people called her Pulchra, the
Beautiful One, and well they might for, born of Venus and
the swaying zephyrs, she rivalled that great goddess both in
form and feature.
As fair as a lily, as gentle as a dove, and as modest as a
blushing rose was Pulchra, her eyes, full of deep shadows,
shown like lustrous amethysts, her hair was like molten sun-
shine, and her voice like the song of a nightingale.
'Twas' the Golden Age, when Pulchra lived' the Age,
when war and toil and death were yet unknown, and inno-
cence and peace and eternal summer reigned supreme., Then
the mighty forests stood untouched, then the oxen never felt
the yoke: man lived in perfect harmony with bird and beast.
The rivers rolled along in waves of purest honey, and the
trees bore fruit of solid gold. But that was all before man
became proud, and ceased to fear gods.
But alas for Pulchra! She knew no early parents, for
Venus, at her birth, had gently placed her in a tiny butter-
cup, softly cradled by the soothing zephyrs, and then had left
her there, a child of Destiny. But she was found and cared
for by an old, old woman, named Fatum. And now that she
was grown, Fatum looked upon her as her own child, and all
the day she would work and weave to buy now and then fine
fruits for her. Together they lived-above their heads the
creamy clouds, around them the fertile fields and sunny
streams, bathed in eternal summer, and beneath their feet
the fair flowers and tall green grasses.
Day by day Pulchra became more and more beautifulg
and people looked at her and whispered: "Only see! she
grows fairer every day. Her skin is like Parian marble."
And Pulchra heard them and gradually she became proud and
still more proud of her beauty. She thought to herself: "I
really believe that I am even more beautiful than Jupiter's
queen." And Jupiter, who knows the hearts of all mankind,
saw that she had become proud.
One evening, when the round golden sun had dropped
below the western hills, and the balmy breezes had begun to
blow, Pulchra and Fatum sat watching the distant stars
twinkle o'er the Milky Way with their golden sandals, and
listening betimes to the faint fairy-music rising and falling in
"Oh!" cried Pulchra in rapture, "what a beautiful night!
Let us stay here forever!"
Fatum heaved a sigh and sadly shook her head: "Alas
for thee and me, sweet Pulchra! That can never be, for I
can read by the stars that you must leave me in my old age
and go on a long and laborious journey, and that you must
become the mother of twins, the one of which shall clothe the
world in joyful robes of Gladnessg but. because your pride
has angered the great Ruler of Heaven and Hell, the other is
destined to bring the gloomy clouds of Death and Sorrow to
"Oh, Fatum!"cried Pulchra in dismay, "where must I go?"
"Afar there lies a city of towers and spires, whose walls
are of emeralds, rubies and pearls, its gates are of ivory and
gold, and its streets are paved with opals and a rosy light that
comes and goes. 'Tis all as though 'twere dipped in a rainbow
of a thousand colors, and 'tis called the city of Laetitia: here
shall thou find rest, and bear thy twins."
"And when, dear Fatum," she sobbed, "must I leave
"When Phoebus with his fiery steeds has thrice gone
past his zenith in the skies, then you must go."
And, when the appointed day had come, faithful Fatum
prepared her foster-child for her long and weary journey,
and then, amid many tears, bade her depart. On and on
Pulchr journeyed, her heart aching with cold and misery,
and her hair covered with the dews of night. Farther and
farther she went, her face and hands torn by the cruel briers,
and her feet cut by the sharp stones, till at length she saw in
the distance the City of Laetitia, growing with ever-increasing
Years afterward two boys came forth from the city: they
were twins. The one was wonderous fair and beautiful:
around his lips played countless smiles and his whole face be-
tokened his great joy in living. On his bosom he wore a
cluster of sweet-scented ilowerets, and in his hand he carried
a tuneful lyre, from which he oft-times struck sweet melodies.
As he danced along he trod upon the earth as lightly as a leaf-
let falls, and where his feet touched the ground, there sprang
up fiowers and lbutterfiies, with soft and transparent wings.
The other followed slowly and painfully behind, leaning
heavily upon a staff' of cypress. He was dressed in sable
garments, and in his deep-set eyes there were gloomy shadows
and traces of bitter sorrow. At his side he wore a tiny
sickle. Now and then a tear would flow down o'er his cheek
and fall upon the ground, so laden was it with grief. As he
moved sluggishly along, his feet struck upon the earth like
claps of thunder, and from his footsteps there swarmed forth
wasps and flies and hornets, which pervaded the whole world
and stung all mankind.
"Oh, Laetus!" groaned Mors, "you move so quickly that
I can not keep pace with youf'
"Very well, dear brother," replied Laetus and came
tripping back, putting his arm around the neck of Mors and
ki-ssing away the tears.
"Laetus," sighed Mors gloomily, "where shall we stay
tonight? I am exceedingly tired, and would gladly lie down
"Oh, we shall find shelter, no doubt, or we can at least
sleep under Heaven's canopy."
At length, just as Phoebus drove his golden chariot out
of sight, they came to a tiny hut. With his fingertips Laetus
knocked upon the door as gently as a dew-drop falls. The
door opened and a woman's face appeared.
"What do you wish, little stranger?" she said.
"May we have shelter for the night, good woman?" he
"Yes," she answered kindly, "but make no noise, for my
child is ill."
"Oh, let me kiss it," cried Laetus eagerly, but before he
could do it, Mors, with bitter tears coursing down his cheeks,
laid his sickle upon the baby's breast, and it lay quite still.
"Oh Mors! Mors! what have you done?"
But Mors made no reply. There lay the child fair and
calm, all its suffering gone. Mors looked upon it once more
and then passed out into the night.
"Dear mother," said Laetus, "do not grieve. I shall
come again next year at this time and when I come, another
baby shall fill this one's place."
When the gladness of the morning sunshine had brought
peace to the mother's aching heart, Laetus departed, with the
promise that he would come again next year.
On and on the two journeyed, entering the homes of
rich and poor, high and lowly, great and obscureg and thus to
all who breathe the free air of Heaven come Laetus, the Joy-
ous, and Mors, the Sorrowing One, Pulchra's twins of Life
and Death. ePaul Brosy.
A Suggestion to the Boys
After you have spent the evening with a girl, take her
to an ice cream parlor for refreshments, most likely she
will need some.

At the End of the Da
IGH up in the tall pines the wind was sighing, but
below in the earth all was still. The sun was slowly
sinking out of sight behind the mountain to await
another day. The shadows touched one tree and then another
until the wood seemed a Hickering mass of light and shade.
A feeling of peace and contentment reigned throughout.
Virginia Meredith was standing among the pines drinking
in the beauty of the sunset and all at once, almost unthink-
ingly, she began to sing a song which seemed to her the inter-
pretation of Nature's beauty:
i'When you come to the end of a Perfect Day,
And you sit alone with your thoughts."
The song rang out clear and true in the still mountain air.
Each word seemed to be more sweetly sung than the one be-
fore and at the last of the first verse: .
"And the dear friends have to part,"
a note of sadness crept in. The girl hesitated as if she feared
she were being heard, the next verse began:
"Well, this is the end of a perfect day,
Near the end of a journey too,"
The girl seemed to have forgotten where she was and poured
forth her heart and soul in the simple words. Then the
voice died down and the end was sung more softly and with
the same note of wistfulness in it.
There was silence for a moment, then a twig snapped,
and with a look of terror she turned around.
"Pardon my interruption," said a deep voice from among
the trees, "but I seem to have lost my Way and your song
was my guiding star."
Virginia hesitated and then noticing his dress and the
pallor of his face, said rather hurridly, "Oh, my song-some-
times I really forget myself. But you are ill," noticing that
the intruder put his hand to his eyes, "Sit here a moment."
"No, thank you, I'll be all right in a second," he mut-
"No, sit here on this boulder," commanded Virginia and
the man obeyed.
After a few moments of rest he recovered and looked up
with a smile.
"I really feel that I should apologize for my behavior,"
he said, "But you see I have been out of the hospital only a
short time, and such a long walk has tired me."
"Oh, then you have walked far?" questioned Virginia.
"From Glendale," was the reply.
"Well, that is rather a long walk for a warm day and
our mountain paths are misleading, but, wont it be impossible
for you to get back,"-
"Tonight?" he interrupted, "Yes, that's what I was
thinking. Do you know of any mountaineers who would be
willing to keep me?"
"Why, I expect so if there were anyg but you see we are
the only people within a mileg nevertheless I'm sure we would
be only too glad to have you as our guest for the night."
"Well, that's mighty kind," he began, but Virginia, with
a nod of her head beckoned him and they started down the
They walked along in silence, the girl finding the way
by instinct, it seemed, as night closed in upon them. Only
once did she halt and that was to turn around upon him
quickly and say, "I forgot to ask your name, mine is Mere-
dith and my home is Pine Top."
And the answer in a deep voice was, "Mine is Philip
Soon they came in sight of a large lcg cabin, almost in-
discernable in the dusk. As they neared the house the path
grew wider and Norton stepped up to Virginia's side and said:
"Miss Meredith, before we go in, may I thank you for
that song this afternoon? It means more to me than you
can ever know. So, may I thank you?"
The girl seemed to understand and together they entered
the house. Virginia bade Norton be seated and stirred the
big log in the fireplace Saying, "My father is in the studio
and as he is always glad to welcome a stranger I shall go im-
mediately and tell him you are heref'
"As the door closed, leaving Norton alone, he looked
about him with increasing amazement. The Hickerings of
the blaze showed shadowy, ghostly objects here and there,
but gradually as his eyes became accustomed to the dim light,
he made out the outlines of a grand piano in one corner,
deep leather chairs around the room and in the center a long
table with a wealth of flowers crowning it. No expense had
been spared in furnishing this room. As the man was try-
ing to solve the mystery his reverie was broken by the abrupt
opening of the door.
A tall white-haired man entered with a firm, soldierly
step and crossed to where Norton was seated.
"Good evening sir,-Mr. Norton is your name, I believe,
Virginia told me," said the man.
"Yes," replied Norton with a smile, "a stranger in a
strange land. I'm mighty sorry to trouble you tonight Mr.
Meredith, but, as your daughter has told you, I have lost my
"Yes, but it's,a pleasure, I assure you. You see we
stay here nine months out of the year and people from the
world are always welcomef'
"I'm glad of thatg but as for being of the world-swell
at present it has no attractions for me," and looking into the
fire-place, Norton's face seemed all at once to be that of an
"You, too, my boy?" said the man gently, "where is
your youth?" A big clock in the corner counted off the
minutes while the two sat in silence. Meredith was the first
to move and coming over to Norton, put his hand on his
shoulder with the words, "Never mind, my boy, y0u've got
life before you and every cloud has a silver lining."
"Pm sorry, sir, but I hardly think so," was the reply.
Meredith said no more of the unhappy incident and the
talk drifted to other topics.
"You say you live here nine months out of the year?"
"Yes," replied the old man. "Virginia and I, and now
my nephew. It used to be our summer home, but since my
wife's death we have liked it better than New York."
"I don't doubt it," was the answer. "A more beau-
tiful spot would be hard to find here in the Blue Ridge."
"And now," continued Meredith "it is the best place
possible for my boy. But you, sir, what of you, I've talked
of myself and mine but of you I've heard little."
"There is nothing, I fear, in my life that is of interest to
anyone," replied Norton, looking into the merry blazing fire.
"I lived in Pittsburg until I entered military school. My
father, perhaps you have heard of him, is Robert Norton of
the big iron concern there."
At this Meredith drew his chair closer to the fire and
with eyes fixed on Norton's face watched intently.
"I finished school and entered West Point. Well, sir, that
was the beginning and the end."
Another pause and then he continued "Dad didn't under
stand but I wonder if you would."
The white-haired man nodded, and said, "I'd like to try,
Norton moved his chair farther from the fire and went on
"You see, everything went well for the first two years.
I had a good record, was well liked and seemed to have every
thing a fellow possibly could have, among other things, a true
friend who cared about me-snot my money. He was a fellow
from the south-you know, perhaps, the type-honest, fearless,
and a man to the core. His father was a general in the Civil
War and from him I suppose he got the qualities which made
him so popular. I was liked partly for my money, but with
Keith, it was different, it was just himself."
i'Well, sir, we got to be staunch friends, really like two
brothers. For two years this went on and at the beginning
of the third, we were still 'David and Jonathan', then that
night sir, I'm afraid I can't tell you about it even now. It
was one of those minutes in which our fates are sealed, and
I, well I played the coward." This last was almost a whisper.
"Keith and I were both on duty that night and it was
easy to put the blame on him and that was what I did. I
don't know why, only when the minute came, I wasn't man
enough and Keith was branded the coward instead of me."
Here was a long silence, then in a low, almost inaudible
whisper, Norton continued "But perhaps all my life had been
preparing for that moment. It was simply fulfilling the law
that I should pay for those years of self-indulgence, that
should take one of the priceless things of life-a true friend
away. You see, Keith knew I was to blame but he never
said a word, so in a short time he was tried and expelled,
while I stayed. West Point meant so much more to him than
it did to me. It had been his father's wish that he should
enter and he, like a soldier, never faltered.
"The rest-there isn't much to tell of. I stayed out the
year, but it was a life of torture. When I told Dad, he didn't
understand and told me to go my way and he would go his.
I had plenty of money in my own name and he felt our lives
would be more pleasant when separated.
"In the fall, I mustered together all my courage and
went to the authorities and made a clean breast of the whole
affair. Of course I was expelled and the fellows thought no
more of me than a dog.
"After leaving, I tried to find Keith, but the earth
seemed to have swallowed him. He wasn't in the south, or
at any other places I knew, so it seems, I must wait for Fate
to bring him back. At last my health failed and I lay in the
hospital for two months suffering from brain fever. Now,
1'm down here trying to get a grip on life again. That, sir,
is my story. I don't know whether you will understand a
man's falling as low as that but I've paid for it dearly."
The old man seemed to rise as if awakening from a dream
and laid his hand on Norton's bowed head, "I think I do under-
stand: and just to show you I do believe in you I'm going to
introduce you to the rest of the family. I'll see where they
are if you will amuse yourself a while."
And with a smile Meredith left the room and Norton
rose and walked to the piano. As his fingers wandered idly
over the keys, the chords of a "Perfect Day," crept in and
softly he began to play the song the girl had sung that after-
noon. As he finished, the door opened and a young man
entered and crossed the room.
As it was dark, Norton could not see at first who the
figure was, but as he walked forward a log fell apart on the
fire and the sparks flying upward revealed the face.
"Keith," was the cry that escaped his lips, "you, Keith,
after all these months!"
"Yes, Phil, it is Keith," was the reply. "Uncle Jim has
told me you were here and let us forget what's past and look
to the futuref' .
The clasp that Norton gave the hand that met his, was
an answer that could not be put into words.

German Club Meeting
UR first German Club meeting was held at the home of our presi-
dent, Paul Brosy. After being introduced to our class-mates in
their queer German clothes, we were welcomed by Paul with a German
poem which he had prepared for the occasion. We enjoyed the short
program, also the dainty refreshments which Mrs. Brosy served us.
While playing "Wink-um", some of the girls found difficulty in getting
in and out of their chairs on account of their wide skirts, and some of
the boys, on account of their large wooden shoes.
Several were noticeably silent while we were speaking German, but
all of us went home feeling that the German Club would be a great suc-
cess this year if it continued to be as interesting as this first meeting
N Oct. 31, 1913, the honorable members of the Senior class met at
the library, from which they were chased by the librarian, Miss
Silliman, to the Post Oflice. Hero the "Hon," Ed. Baker met them
with his equipage, upon which the thirty-six members deposited them-
selves, although slightly crowded for comfort. After some fuss over the
arrival of Thelma King and the Huss twins, the journey was commenced.
Slowly but surely we wended our way toward the domicile of our hostess,
Coleta Sassaman. Through mud-holes and sand-pits We toiled, o'er hill
and dale, mostly "hill", When about sixteen miles from civilization, we
approached a hill so steep that our hostler, "Ed", was forced to round
up another pair of horses so that we could continue our journey. From
here on, the larger part of our party proceeded on foot. We all arrived,
more or less covered with cockle burrs and mud, straw and water. At
the door we were met by the ghost of our forefathers, who
piloted us within, where we removed part of our mud-stained
garments. The evening was spent in the old-fashioned games,
bobbing for apples, ghost-walks, etc.
After hearty refreshments, we bade our adieus. During
this time our chauffeur had brought the wagon around to the
front door. We again piled in, but in a more crowded con-
dition than before, if that were possible. 'Twas bitter cold
and our thin clothing was but little protection. After four
hours of riding, we suddenly topped a rise, and beneath our
feet glittered the lights of the city. We no sooner came
within hearing distance of the city's whistles, than the sound
of five o'clock curfew smate reproachfully upon our ears.
Several hours later we arrived at the monument, and were
unloaded by our driver in a rather frozen condition. From
this point we scattered in various directions, after many fond
farewells. --fZander and Avery, Incj
HE evening of Nov. 8, 1913, was cold and rainy, but
since the "Juniors" had decided upon this night for a
straw-ride to the home of Lloyd Lane, the weather made no
difference. After some delay, the jolly party finally started,
at about 8:30 o'clock, on the long anticipated outing. As we
neared our destination, the wind began to blow, and rain came
harder and harder. It was almost 10:30 by the time we had
our rain coats and blankets hung around the roaring wood
fire to dry, and were ready for the evening's entertainment.
The difficulties of our ride were soon forgotten, all joined in
the fun and had a jolly good time. A graphaphone concert
was the first feature, and after that games followed thick
and fast. Last, but not least, were the delicious refresh-
ments served by the host's mother.
The ride home was much more pleasant than the one
earlier in the evening, though the weather was still very cold.
We reached home in time for all to have at least a little nap
before going to work on Saturday morning.
NE of the most enjoyable meetings of the German Club
was held at the school building one evening in January.
The first part of the evening was spent in' conversing and
singing German songs. Some of the most appreciated num-
bers on the programme were the eloquent extemporaneous
speeches given by the Huss twins. Miss Christie then led
the way to the science lecture room, where she had a fine
surprise for us. On her extended trip through Europe she
collected views of the places she visited and had them ar-
ranged in the order one would see them on a trip. These
she showed us with the aid of the Projection Lantern, telling
us delightful myths connected with the various pictures. We
then went to the laboratory, where sandwiches and cocoa
were served. At a late hour we journeyed homeward declar-
ing the evening most enjoyably spent. i
Physics Class Spread
H, the mustache mug was there! But where? Why,
I at the Physics Class Spread, at the High School build-
ing, Feb. 2, 1914. But why do I say the mug was there?
Reason enough! Mr. Clifford and his mustache were there,
and such a noble captain must have an appropriate skiff to
transport the coffee past the hideous portal to the canal.
In fact, the mug was only a small part of the fun, for
we all had a lovely, jolly time. The losing side certainly did
everything up brown, for rather "in" purple and whitel.
Paul Avery constantly kept the escalloped potatoes within his
reach, Miss Matson had her fill of the dainty salad, and Mr.
Clifford kept his two eyes on two platters of veal loaf-and
we all ate, and ate, and ate.
But even the "mug" and the "eats" were not all, for
after the delicious "filling" repast we made our way from
the Physics laboratory to the Assembly Room. Here several
favored us with their stirring selections, and the victrola
nobly filled in the rest of the time.
To be brief, everyone of us had a grand good time, and
the winners thank the losers for the "feed" and the enter-
tainment which so completely supplied us with "eats" and
German Club .
OR one evening in February the German Club had planned
a sleighride to Coleta Sassaman's. We met at the home
of Ruth Longworth, and, after much ado warming bricks and
hot-water bottle filling, fMiss Christie's suggestionl, we set
forth on a delightful ride, for the sleighing was ideal. For
some reason we did not get cold on the way, perhaps Miss
Christie's fur overcoat helped to keep the atmosphere from
getting chilly. At last we arrived at the home of our hostess,
and immediately proceeded to enjoy the evening with games
of various kinds. After enjoying the delicious refreshments
served by our hostess, we took our departure, bricks, hot-
water bottles and all.
Der Deutsche Verein lst Zu Ende
UR last German Club meeting was held May 15th, when
fifteen members assembled at the High School and
Went to Fisher's lake. Here We were given the use of Guett-
hoH's cottage where we served our picnic supper to which
Mrs. Guetthoff contributed bounteously. Immediately after-
wards several of the members disappeared. In spite of an
alarmed searching party, the president and another member,
whom I need not mention, "stayed disappeared" until the
wagon came to take us back. We reached home at an early
hour Cin the morningb tired but happy, nicht wahr?
HE banquet given by the Juniors in honor of the Seniors
on Wednesday. May twenty-seventh, was one of the
events in society this year. At about seven o'clock the guests
were assembled in the parlors of the Methodist church, which
had been very beautifully decorated, the colors of the two
classes being prevalent throughout. After a sumptuous ban-
quet, the toastmaster, or rather, mintmaster, Mr. Way, was
introduced by Harold Allen, president of the Junior class, and
a programme consisting of spicy mints, and music, followed.
The Senior class will certainly always remember the lovely
evening they spent when the Juniors proved themselves such
splendid hosts and hostesses.
Laocoon, by lot selected Neptune's priest.
Was offering up the wonted sacrificial beast.
When lo, behold! from Tenedos-e'en now I quake
As I recall the scene two serpents shoreward makeg
They breast the tranquil ocean, swimming side by side,
And with their mighty coils o'er Neptune's bosom glideg
Amid the waves upreared appear their slimy breasts,
O'ertopping all the billows rise the blood-red crests:
The rest behind them skims the deep, and coils and molds
Their scaly backs in monstrous undulating folds.
The salty sea doth splash with spumeg and soon they reach
The sacred altar standing on the sandy beach:
While gleam their eyes suffused with blood and flaming fire,
They lick their lips with tongues, which dart and hiss for ire
We Hee in terror from the fearful sight. But they
Toward Neptune's priest in course unswerving hold their way
And first, about his two young sons the serpants coil,
And with their venomed bite the wretched limbs despoilg
Then next the father, coming up to aid, is seized
And in the monstrous coils is quickly caught and squeezedg
And straightway, twice themselves around his waist they bind
And twice their scaly backs about his shoulders wind:
With slow deliberate winding they encircle all,
And overtop the three with heads and bodies tall.
The struggling father tries their knots apart to wrench,
While slaver, venomous and black, his fillets drenchg
He sends up to the stars above heart-rending cries:
Such moans a bull doth make, who from the altar flies,
And, blinded with ecstatic pain, away doth break
And from his wounded neck the ill-aimed weapon shake.
The serpants flee with gliding motion toward the shrine
And seek and enter cruel Minerva's fane divine,
And there beneath the goddess' feet and rounded shield,
With slimy bodies all coiled up, they lie concealed.
-Paul M. Brosy.
Then indeed Gossip proceeds throughout all
the great Libyan citiesg
Gossip, than whom there is no other evil more
rapid in spreadingg
Strength she gains by her swiftness and
force she acquires by advancingg
Doubtful at first on account of fear, soon she
raises herself in air,
And she treads on the earth though she veils
her head in the cloud-mist.
Earth, her fond parent, enraged by the wrath of the
Bore her, they say, a young sister to Coeus and
Swift of foot and with fleet wings, a creature so
dreadful and monstrous,
Having beneath every plume a vigilant eye and
a sharp tongue
fMarv'lous to telll, whose mouths are a thousand, and
ears just as many.
Nightly she flies through the midst of the heavens
and circling the earth-shade,
Does not in slumber sweet let her eye droopg
but ever in watchfulness,
Settles by day on the roof of a dwelling or mounts
some high turret,
Filling with terror great cities and clinging
to falsehood and lies
Just as much as reporting the truthful and
credible story. -Mafrian Pratt.
Scylla and Charybdis
Upon the right broad Scylla guards, and on the left
The ever greedy Charyhdis with open mouth,
Sucks down her fearful throat the frenzied, raging sea's
Vast waves into the huge abyss thrice every day,
And in successive shoots the 'foamy waters fly
Up to the stars by reason of' the monsters' strength.
Fierce Scylla hiding in a gloomy cavern lurks,
Oft opening her mouth and bearing ships
Upon the hidden rocks.
First form of man and maiden fair with lovely breast,
Then from the loins on down a woolfish body, hugeg
Close joined thereon a finny tail of dolphin tribe.
'Tis better far to round the goal, Pachynum's shore
On Sicily's fair land, and to deflect the courseg
Yes, change the path and take the longer, smoother way
Than to have seen within her cave that Horror's queen
Perched on her grinding rocks amid the dark sea dogs.

Synopsis of Operetta
HE princess Bulbul is betrothed to the mighty Prince Caspian, who is about to arrive
to claim her hand in marriage. Great preparations are being made for the approach-
ing wedding, although everyone's ardor is somewhat dampened by the melancholy attitude
of the princess and the non-arrival of the prince. In the meanwhile the maids of honor,
including the princess, have meta band of peddlers in the garden: with one of the number,
the princess falls violently in love. She plans to meet him that evening in the ball-room.
When she sees him she is overcome at his changed appearance, for he is dressed as a
courtier. She hides him from her father behind a curtain. Bulbul then asks her father,
Iamit, if he will fulfill the promise which he has previously made, namely: that any lady of
the court could ask any man she wished to marry her. He grants the request and when
the curtain is pulled aside everyone recognizes the prince, who has been disguised as a humble
perfume seller. Ida, the court chaperon, insists on Iamit fulhlling his promise by marrying
her. Iamit resigns himself to his fate. So many happy weddings are planned for i'Tuesday
The High School Chorus
HE chorus of this year prospered under the direction of Miss Hughes, and is looked
upon by all as a great success. The main feature of this year's activity was the operetta
"Bulbul", given on February 26th and 27th, which was duly appreciated by a large audience
The chorus brought its work for the year to a close when it furnished the music for the
Baccalaureate Service. Hard work and patience characterized the work of the chorus
throughout the year, and much of its success was due to the accompanist, Irene Robbins.
High School Orchestra
URING the past two years the High School Orchestra
has been trained by Principal H. H. Clifford. The
orchestra of 1913-14 has made two public appearances. It
added much to the success of the Operetta "Bulbul" and
gave a professional touch to the Senior play by furnishing
music between acts.
Believing that any school, which pretends to develop an
all around student, should train the aesthetic side of the indi-
vidual's nature, we hope that the orchestra may continue its
mission of usefulness. I

Jan. 23. When the team played at Buchanan they

Feb. 6. Again we say revenge. Constantine here. Score
43-9 in our favor.
Feb. 13. In the game at Niles the Niles team secured a
six point lead during the first half, but our boys came back
in the second half nosing Niles out by the score of 19-18.
Mar. 6. Buchanan here. Score: Buchanan 24, Three
Rivers 53. 3
Mar. 13. Niles here. Score: Niles 12, Three Rivers 21.
The basket ball season, judging from the number of
games won, was unusually successful. Regular practice com-
menced in November. Only two of last year's team were
back and considerable shifting around was necessary to Ht
the new members into the positions where they could play
best. Handicapped as usual by the lack of a suitable practice
floor the real playing qualities of the team did not show up
at first and the first two games played on outside floors were
lost but every game from then on to the end of the season
was won. In both the Buchanan and Niles games played on
their floors the first half ended with a six point lead in favor
of the opponents and the real playing and staying qualities of
the team showed up here in overcoming this lead and win-
ning these games.
As usual the second team deserves praise for the assist-
ance they gave in practice against the first team. They were
never fully organized and in the only game they played were
defeated by Constantine.

Guards:-Knapp, Huss, Rowe.
Girls' Basket Ball
HE basket ball girls began practice about
the middle of October with Miss Ellis as
coach. We had splendid practices and every-
one was very enthusiastic. On January 23 we
played our first game with Benton Harbor on
our own floor and we succeeded in beating them
by a score of 7-6.
On the following Friday night we played
Vicksburg and were successful in "landing"
that game. They told us a defeat was waiting
us when the return game was played but they
changed their tune when the time came.
In our next two games with Elkhart we
were beaten 11-14 and 8-13 but they had a
champion team. At Elkhart we thought we
were doomed to a most dreadful defeat but
after playing the first half and getting used to
the Hoor and their way of playing the girls
allowed them to make but one point the last
half. thus bringing our score up considerably but not enough
to give us the game.
February 27 we played the return with Vicksburg and
much to their surprise beat them. At the end of the first
half Vicksburg was in the lead but when time was called
at the end of the second half the score stood a tie. The cap-
tains decided we would play over time until one team made
two points, Next the score stood 11-10 in favor of Three
Rivers and then 11-11. Then our girls got up a little "pep"
and Ella made a field basket making the score 13-11 in our
favor. This was by far the best game of the season.
Our next game was the return with Benton Harbor, on
Mar. 13. Although we lost the game 8-30 we had a perfectly
fair deal, the defeat being due to Wall ball and slippery fioor.
The games with Battle Creek and St. Joe
were cancelled for various reasons.
Although we lost three games the girls did
very good work and deserve much credit for
the hard practices they attended.
Special mention should be made of the
second team who stood by the first team and
practiced with them throughout the season.
This should produce some excellent material
for next year's teams.
-Melba Wood, Capt. and Mgr.
UMMING up the games and the Work of
the team, we feel that each gave her best
to place Three Rivers among the first. Next
year's team will be weakened temporarily by
the loss of Ella Stoldt and Mae Bole as for-
wards, and Melba Wood as guard, each of these
being exceptionally strong. However, with the
past record of the centers and with the future of
this year's substitutes it is only a question of time as to the LINE UP
future of the Girls' Basket Ball Team.

Apr. 18. The Mendon team composed of ineligible and
outside players, came here and won the game from our bunch
by a score of 6-4.
Apr. 25. Our boys not yet able to withstand a storm,
went to Colon and were beaten by a score of 15-2.
May 2. Centreville came here and was beaten by the
score of 17-3.
May 9. Three Rivers went to Mendon. After out-play-
ing Mendon in nearly every department of the game for the
first seven innings, our boys had a streak of bad luck and lost
to them by the score of 9-4.
May 16. Colon here. Our boys had the game all
Usewed up," until the eighth and ninth innings when costly
errors allowed a series of runs to cross home plate. The
score: Colon 10-T. R. 6.
The graduation of three of last year's team and the
dropping out of school of several others left only five veterans
on the team when spring practice began. Some very good new
material showed up to fill in the vacancies and the team was
in fair shape when the regular schedules began. Gregg and
Jewell started the season by having finger nails torn loose and
Gregg followed this by falling in catching a ball and bruising
his shoulder so badly that he was not used in the box until the
last two games of the schedule. Jewell had his nail torn
loose again and was out of the last two games in consequence.
Handicapped by lack of pitchers, inexperience and the
poor support by the school, the team went through a hard
schedule and lost the majority of games played. As only two
of the team leave school the outlook for a winning team next
year is good.

heart to send the poor fellow away without his breakfast."
Teacher: "What tense do Iuse when I say, 'I am beautiful'?"

ing on my lips for weeks and weeks."

Miss Hughes, in chorus: "You sopranos want to hurry your
'wedding days,' and then it goes slower."
Willard Huss, speaking of vibrations: "It hurts my ears when
Jcnet sings the 'palms'." '
Ellet to H. H. C.: "Is that what causes my dog to howl
when I sing?"
Mr. Clifford to the Physics class: "I haven't had time to cor
rect all of the papers yet. for I never know when I'm
going to be alone." fAsk Miss Furman.J
Latin Teacher: "What is the dative singular of donum?"
Stupid One: "Don' know."
J. A. W.: "What makes you look so freshiefied?"
