FTER several years of unsuccessful attempts to organize football
teams to represent the Three Rivers High School, it was decided
by the students and faculty to give the game of Soccer a trial, as it ap-
peared to be the only game with a chance for success in the fall. No
one in town knew anything of the game, so rule books were procured
and the game attempted. As this was the situation in, and the course
of the other neighboring high schools, we were willing to play the game
with them, beginning after but one week of practice. Constantine,
White Pigeon and Centreville were played with as much success to our
team as could be expected under the circumstances. The boys became
enthusiastic over the game and turned out in large numbers for practice.
The following boys formed the squad and developed some unusually
good players, who will form the nucleus of a strong team next fall:
Edward Drumm, Burr Drumm, Walter Langley, Ernest Knapp, James
Comin, Ed. Baker. Arthur Luck, Glee Wolf, Frank Krull, Harold Sloan,
Chas. Rowe, Glenn Pulver, Raymond Sweitzer, Alva Godshalk, Clark
Jacobs, Elgy Slack, Donald Whitesell and Leo Ash.
At the spring meeting of the County Superintendents' Association
a schedule of Soccer games for next fall was adopted, and all the high
schools of the county are planning on rarticipating. From all indi-
cations now present it appears that we have found the fall sport suitable
for all the high schools of St. Joseph County.
ALAS AND ALACK
Your Junior Class is dull and dry,
You really sing a lullaby.
Morning you come, evening you go,
The more you come, the less you know.
kI'I BALL 'IHSAM
UE to the wet condition of the diamond, base ball practice was late
in getting started this spring, and with only four of last year's
team out for practice the prospects for a Winning team looked rather
gloomy. Practice began as soon as the diamond was in shape and the
vacant places on the team were soon filled.
We were scheduled to play our first game with Mendon, but being
unable to play an eligible team Mendon decided to cancel all her games.
This made it necessary that we play the strong Colon team, our first
game at Colon, and due to lack of practice on our part We Were defeated
8 to 2.
Our second game was played with Centreville on our diamond and
profiting by the experience gained in the game with Colon, coupled with
a week of hard practice we easily defeated them 12 to 8.
Two weeks later we played Colon on our diamond and in a hotly
contested game defeated them 4 to 1.
Our next game will be played with Centreville at Centreville, and
following this the tie game will be played with Colon at Centreville. We
are confident of winning both of these games and expect to represent
the Northern Division on Field Day for the county championship.

Girls' Basket Ball
LTHOUGH not so many games as usual have been played this year,
yet the season has been very interesting and enjoyable in every
respect. The success of the team has been due to a great extent to the
coaching of Mrs. E. D. Thomas, formerly Miss Baker, and of Alva God'
shalk. Victorious in every game, the girls only regret the fact that
they were unable to find more teams Willing to play against them.
Faithfulness in attendance to practice has been a very large factor in de-
termining the success of the team, and the girls not on the flrst team,
also deserve much credit in this respect. T. R. H. S. should be proud
of the fact that it has so many girls who are willing to give up two
nights every week for practice, in order that the high school they repre-
sent may boast of a winning girls' basket ball team.

NREVERIES CF A SENIOR,'
Sadly he gazed on a picture
Of a youth of just seventeen,
Dressed in a long Prince Albert,
That made him look extra thin.
"I wonder," he said, "If I never
Will forget that place and date,
When I was the big attraction,
Like the others who graduate?"

Boys' Basket Ball
N basket ball, the greatest indoor sport of the middle west, Three
Rivers has had some good teams. Our team this year has been un-
doubtedly one ofthe best we have ever had in this sport. Playing as
hard a schedule as Three Rivers ever played, and being handicapped with
injuries that forced every man, but one, from the game some time dur-
ing the season, we can indeed be proud of our team's record of 260
points against our opponents' 189.
Capt. Pulver, at guard, proved his worth as a player and leader.
His weight and strength could not be overcome by his opponents.
Because of Godshalk's experience it is needless to say that he was a
valuable man to the squad. He played a strong game at center, and
was exceptionally sure on baskets.
Ash, playing at forward, was a tower of strength on the offensive.
His playing was aggressive and effective. Rowe filled the other forward
position. His ability as a basket thrower, coupled with his speed, made
him a dependable man and one whose position will be very hard to fill.
Everhart was a fast and heady player with remarkable basket ball
ability. He played a consistent guard. Sweitzer played at guard in
many of the games and was at all times steady and dependable. Comin,
the only man on the team to return next year, played a creditable game
whenever called upon.

ITH two weeks practice on the last senior play it promises to give
the audience that greets it on June Tth a pleasing and satisfactory
entertainment. It is the mostditiicult play to present that hasbeen used
this year. It portrays several types of English characters, and depicts
two different methods of rearing children, thus giving the philosophy of
two types of the English society besides sharply ditferentiating the
characters. One Englishman, an aristocrat, maps out a complete course
of instruction for his son to persue: selects his wife, destines him to a
public career in parliament, and directs him to follow it implicitly. The
other Englishman who had acquired his wealth by selling butter always
gives his boy his fling, and has never balked him from a baby, but in-
wardly feels that his son will not thwart his wishes. Each father thus has
his system, and each insists that his system is the correct one.
Lowell Weinberg represents the selfemade Englishman who has made
his wealth by selling butter: he has a son, Alva Godshalk. and this son is
being educated by the laissez faire system. Clare Zander takes the part
of an aristoclatic Englishman who also has a son, Clarence Godshalk, who
likewise is subjected to his father's system of strict obedience. While
the boys are abroad they meet and fall in love with two attractive young
girls, Grace Lassance and Lola Schweitzer, the latter an heiress, and the
former her poor cousin. Upon returning to England a struggle ensues
between the young men and the fathers' systems. Zander plans to have
his son marry the heiress while Weinberg prefers the cousin for his son,
but the boys buck the systems and love just the reverse. Incensed by
such conduct the fathers alienate their boys and leave them to shift for
themselves. As time passes the fathers long for their sons, and finally
they hunt them up and welcome them back. The systems are dear ex-
periences, but "henceforth they rise to brighter realms," and the girls
share equally in the happiness.
The play would not be complete without the minor characters.
Marie Whitenight is the sister of the aristocrat, but she takes a great
fancy to Weinberg, the butterman, much to the disgust of Zander.
Donald Bromley and Donald Major are servants of the wealthy men, and
Rachel Hayman is a lodging house slave where the two boys stay during
their estrangement. Each member of the cast is working hard, and the
interest displayed is sure to produce results. -Mr. Lyttle.

EIN DEUTSCI-IES GEDICHT
Unser deutscher Club ist versammelt,
Einen frohlichen Abend zu haben
Ein Augenblick horchen Sie bitte
Ich spreche von zwei schon Knaben.
Herr Ash ist der erste jung Manne
Und wissen wir alle sehr gut
Dass er gern fur liebliche Edna
Ohne Klan wurd ertrinken in Flut.
Es gibt ein Knabe im Schule
Sein bestes Madchen ist Nell
Obgleich er stattlich und fein ist,
Wir wissen er auch ist sehr hell.
Herr Noss ist der dritte Knabeg
Wir denken, er ist verlobt schon.
In Deutsch ist er so sehr sharf
Sein Mutter ruft ihn ihr "Sohn."
Jetzt ist mein Leid fast vollendet,
Und lassen mich sagen am Ende,
Weil ich schwer gearbeitet habe,
Ich hoffe, Sie klatschen die Hande.

"We halve no facultiesp we have abilities."
-Brown and C0j'fma.n.
"There's no such thing as 'faculty',l' the psychologist said:
"There's no such thing as ifaculty'," the learned doctor saidg
"The thing which you call 'faculty' is a mirage of the mind,
The din of worn-out mental wheels, too old to serve mankind."
"But please, what shall we call these things?" said teacher half
"What is it when we think, or act, or feel?" the teacher said.
"O, those are capabilities, 'abilities' of lateg
But 'faculties'? O, no, no, no! They're wholly out of date!"
"So must it be?" the teacher sighed and tried to force a smile-
"So now we've lost our faculties, is living worth the while?
I fear if learned doctors have their way, as late inclined,
We'll all wake up some morning bright, to find we've lost our mind.
And now poor Mr. Lyttle is a little man indeed:
No matter what great things he's done, the world will little heed,
For a man without a faculty has little else, you see,
And ne'er again the world will talk of his Uabilityf'
And poor DeLong, who'd pedagogued on subjects full a score,
And crammed the recess of his brain with fully a dozen more.
He has no claim on those who hold to good old doctrine preaching
He's in the discard too, for he's no facility for teaching.
And Crawford stock has taken a fall from par to less than zero!
What boots is that a man will toil and prove to be a hero,
When doctors wise in judgment sit upon the work at hand,
And say he has no faculties whatever at command!
There's Ringle, he made quite a hit, and others thought so, toog
But then, that's nothingfall depends upon the point of view-
The business world will never trust the work of any man
Who has no jhculty at all-a man who only can.
Has Chapel any faculty? Well, yesg so once 'twas thought,
But that was ere the science man put everything to rout.
O, all those brilliant faculties the man is now bereft,
And nothing ever will atone of all that now is left.
A woman with a faculty! Now, surely, that's a joke!
There's nothing left her but to don the matrimonial yoke.
In foreign lands, mid foreign scenes so for removed from this,
Miss Furman's vacant smile will light the skies of married bliss.
And what of Matson's wealth of love, who's simple as can be.
The reason is, she's been deprived of every fclcilltyf
And now, both witless and forlorn this simple maid we End-
She can't teach Latin any more, because she's lost her mind!
Miss Pett was thought to be immune from every microbe creature
But since she's lost her jhculties she is no longer teacher.
With vacant brow and vacant stare she looks upon the faces
Of pitying friends, as still she haunts the old familiar places.
Miss Eldridge too, was said to have a store of household wit.
But what has wrought the change of late? She hasn't e'en a bit!
"Why! haven't you heard the dreadful news? Her mind is in
E'er since she lost her .fT1CZlHl'6'S, the poor deluded girl."
And there's Miss Taylor and Miss Mensch, it surely can't be true
That dire misfortune has o'ercome those learned maidens two!
"O, yes, these dread miraculous and melancholy days
Have robbed them of their fG,CZllf1.0S,' their minds are merely haze.
The teacher gave a sudden start-she sat up in surprise:
Her book dropped from its tired perch. she rubbed her wonder-
HO, dear! I've been asleep," she said f"'I'm glad 'twas only
How good it is to be awake after such horrid dreaming!"

SEN IORS " ' X'
ODAY we Seniors stand at that door which opens into Life. This is the com-
mencement of our mature lives. The door has been opening noiselessly upon its
well-oiled hinges till now we can look, perhaps somewhat fearfully, upon the busy
world without. But like travelers, who, about to start out upon a long and fearful
journey, tarry a moment to give sad farewells and last tokens of appreciation, We,
today, ere we sever fond relations with our old associations and friends, must hesitate
to express our appreciation and bid all farewell. The honor has been conferred upon
me of speaking these last words.
To you the Citizens of Three Rivers we wish to express our sincere appreciation
of the spirit evinced toward all our school and class doings and for the unfailing sup-
port given us by you in all things we have undertaken as a class. When we leave you,
we shall feel keenly the loss of a home interest and sympathy which has shielded us
from the cruel unfeeling world. To you, one and all, we say with sadness, "Farewell!"
We would not be standing here today, confident and hopeful, if our eflicient
School Board had not provided for us a High School from which we can go with heads
up and of which each one can proudly say, "I come from Three Rivers High School."
We seniors appreciate now, as we perhaps have never done before, how deep and de-
voted is the interest you, the gentlemen of the School Board, have always had in the
selection of efficient administrators and instructors and in the general management of
the school for the best interests of the students.
To the Teachers we owe the deepest gratitude. Next to ourselves and parents you
have had the greatest opportunity for shaping our futures. We have come to regard
you as instructors and as persons desirous of guiding us aright. Into our minds you
have instilled fundamental truths which, if persevered make success. You have cheer-
fully given the best that is in you. For that we are grateful, but the realization of
the beauty and utility of the seeds you have sown in our minds will bring to you heart-
felt thanks such as We cannot give when time and circumstance bring those seeds into
full bloom. Your responsibility has been great-greater than we now realize-for the
preparation of young people for the duties of life is the highest type of patriotism.
You have guided the footsteps of the citizens of the great tomorrow.
To you the Undergraduates we say that we are glad that you, in your turn, will
fill the place left vacant by our departure. What is happening today in our lives will
be experienced by you later. If we have done anything of value, profit by itg if we
have blundered at times, forget those occasions. Above all improve upon what has
been done. Make your class and its achievements a success. When in parting we say,
"Farewell," we sincerely hope that you will enjoy your last days in High School as
we have enjoyed ours.
For the members of the Graduating Class the last words are reserved. This Com-
mencement gives us the grandest send-05 ever received by our class. This is a reward
for years of toil. Tomorrow this day's occurrences will be a past memory and the
stern future will confront us. What Will that future hold? Fame, respect and a place
in the sun? Perhaps, but only thru conscientious effort. We have been prepared for
that future in all ways possible. The final outcome lies with us. Let us stand firmly
upon prepared foundations, do our present duties and let the future care foritself.
Let the past bury the past. And above all fight to win. To say the last words is the
most difficult. We eagerly sought the goal, but reckoned not the parting. These few
moments represent the culmination of our class associations formed thru the years in
High School. This, no doubt, is the last occasion at which the entire class will be as-
sembled. Let these blissful seconds glide slowly-very slowly-into the Past. The
mere thot that this is the last meeting saddens the hearts of all. But altho we never
meet again, sweet memories will always remain. May we all so shape our courses
that at any time we can look back upon lives kept bright by the light of kindly service
and lofty purpose. And at last, when overcome with mingled feelings of joy and sad-
ness, time bids us extend our parting hand to all and say, "Farewell!"
Scriptum est Nonis Majis id. -LeRoy Johnson.
O say you're welcome were superiiuousf' Thus in Shakespear's words our class
extends a cordial welcome to every one who is present here tonight. Before
me I see those who are near and dear to our class-those who have made the
greatest sacrifices in order that we, the class of 1916, might have the privilege and
honor of appearing in this role before you this evening.
First of all, in behalf of our class, I extend a most hearty welcome to you, our
Fathers and Mothers. To you we owe more than we can ever repay. What sacrifices
of time, pleasures and comforts have you not experienced for us? What labor have
you not endured that we might enjoy the advantages which have been made possible
by your love and kindness?
Then to you, our Sisters and Brothers and other relatives, we extend our welcome.
You have helped us greatly in making our graduation possible, for perhaps some of
you, also, have deprived yourselves of a high school education, that we might enjoy it.
Our Teachers, to you also, our hearty welcome goes forth. Because of our associ-
ation with you, and the training you have given us, we have been enabled to enrich
our hearts and minds, so that we will be better fitted to meet the problems of life that
lie before us. We shall always count you among our true friends.
And to you, our worthy Superintendent and School Board, we also extend our
greeting and welcome. It is due to your management and plans that our High School
has been enabled to progress so rapidly to furnish us with the opportunities for ad-
vancement. And all our friends and citizens of Three Rivers, we bid you a glad wel-
come, with deepest gratitude to all for the opportunities and advantages which have
been afforded us.
Our commencement eve is at hand. Whether or not it will be of more importance
than a social function rests with each member of our class. But surely our Commence-
ment does mean more to us all than a mere social function! For have we not always
been climbing? We have all faithfully climbed, though sometimes the rocks have
been rugged. But now that we have finally arrived here, we find that we have gained
only the top of the foot hills. As we scan the distance before us, now, for the first
time, we see the true mountains that lie beyond. Heretofore, the summit of the true
mountains-of the real life that lies before uswhas been veiled in clouds. For the
most part we have been occupied with the present and near-at-hand duties. But now,
after tonight we must again start climbing, though the rocks be rugged, and this time
up the true mountains of real life. All along up the path of the foot-hills, our parents
and teachers were our guides who were always ready to lend a helping hand. In most
cases we must leave them now. They can travel with us only to the summit of those
foot-hills. Only their good wishes and prayers can go with us. Now, as we begin
our ascent up the mountains, we are thrown upon our own resources, and with new
guides. Yet always the same One Great Guide can be with us.
Morever, our journey together up the paths of our High School experience has
been a pleasant one, and its pleasures and privileges will not soon be forgotten. They
will always cling to us in happy memories. The ties of friendship formed during our
High School course will not be weakened by this parting. So, let this evening, the
last evening the class of 1916 as a class is together, be the brightest and happiest of
our school career. Let us be of good cheer and enjoy these last few hours together.
To the enjoyment of this evening, with heartfelt thanks and appreciation for all
the efforts and sacrihces made in our behalf, the class of 1916 bids its loyal friends a
most hearty welcome.
-Ca rleen Kloclfe.
"Upward! Onward! Forward!
Life is just begun.
Gladdened by the rising sun,
Refreshed by morning's dew,
Speeded by the lark's sweet notes,
We'll carry our day's battle thru
With lofty aim and win.
"Upward! Onward! Forward!
Life is at its height.
Leaving of our youthful rush,
Settling down to manly stride,
Looking about with careful glance,
We gather fruit by the wayside,
Selecting the best to win.
"Upward! Onward! Forward!
Life is near its close.
Comforted by our day's gain,
Cheered by lessened woes,
Meeting another commencement
Just beyond our death throes,
With undying faith, we'll win."

THREE RIVERS DAILY COMMERCIAL
Valuable Records of 1916 Found
at T. R. by Prof. Oreliee
THREE RIVERS, June 8: Prof. Oreliee, while looking up the his-
tory of early French explorers of this region, found some very old
records of one hundred years ago. Among these was the class history
of 1916 of T. R. H. S. Written by Doris Place. The remarkable factor
of this is that many of the world's famous men, such as President of
U. S. Harold Schall, the famous novelist Donald M. Major, Leroy John-
son, the second Booker T. Washington, and many others of note were
members of this class. Thus the record is worthy of our notice. The
following are extracts from the original.
"As Freshmen we studied continuously and did not enter into the
social life of our famous high school. Clare Zander was chosen our
president and blue and white for class colors. We began our high
school career with sixty-six members. We have always been foremost in
athletics and in this year we were able to boast of Beatrice Madery and
Alva Godshalk in basket ball, Alva Godshalk and Glenn Pulver in base
ball, Raymond Sweitzer in track. This is very unusual for Freshmen.
While Freshmen we endured and most of us passed through, all of the
well-known Freshman trials."
It seems at first as though this class was going to be entirely athletic,
but going on we find they, as nearly all Sophomores, were interested in
the pursuit of learning.
"The fall of 1913 saw us enter Three Rivers High School, more
dignified, more eager for learning, and with a feeling that some day in
the near future we should reach the goal strived for by all eager ones of
learning, namely, to be dignified and honored Seniors. This year our
roll fell to forty-seven, many failing to withstand the hardships as Fresh-
men and many finding occupation elsewhere. Five new members entered
our class, Jeannette King, Doris Place and LeRoy Johnson from the
Eighth Grade. Helen Baker from Butler, Indiana, and Aubrey Peterson
from Chicago. Clare Zander was re-elected president, and we struggled
with Caesar and geometry. Again we were splendidly represented in all
events of athletics and at Held meet we won the inter-class cup. Fearing
certain members of the Faculty as well as all Sophomores needed recrea-
tion after the school year was over, all enjoyed a picnic at Fisher Lake."
It appears these young people were very considerate of the Faculty,
perhaps there were reasons fof two coming yearsl for their consideration.
"Our Junior year we boasted of the largest Junior class ever in
Three Rivers High School. This year Leo Ash was elected to lead us
through the perils of peace making with the Seniors. Our Motto was
chosen, 'Climb tho the rocks be ruggedf We plowed through Virgil,
Chemistry, German and History without any serious results, and we
wrote the famous so-called "Orations." The High School Boys Basket
Ball team was composed entirely of Junior boys, and there was no event
that took place in which the Juniors did not have an important part. In
May we and the Seniors ended all quarrels, personal and public at the
Junior-Senior banquet, given at the Methodist church by the Juniors.
After such friendly relations occurred, we decided to join with them in
their last picnic at Fisher Lake, June 14."
From a description of the banquet found elsewhere in the History,
it surely must have been an elaborate affair. This banquet was the social
event of the year, and Juniors, Seniors and Faculty members were al-
"August 30, 1915 saw the most dignified and most eager for learn-
ing and with a feeling that we had reached the time when we were an
honored and dignified Senior. This year Grace Lassance, Flossie Spigel-
myer, Lucy Campbell, Mae Kaiser, Mamie Boyer, Ernestine Latimer, and
Madge Kline entered our class from the Sophomores, making our class the
largest ever to begin the Senior year, Harold Schall was elected our pres-
ident and work on the "Refiector" was soon begun with Carleen Klocke
as Editor-in-chief. We presented the first play in December. the title,
"At the End of the Rainbow." The next in March, "The Deacon."
and our third June 7, "Our Boys." The Boys B. B. Team was composed
of the same boys as in the Junior year, namely, Charles Rowe, Frank
Everhart, Alva Godshalk, Leo Ash and Glenn Pulver. The Juniors. this
year, not to end all quarrels, but because of the deep friendship between
themselves and the Seniors, gave us a splendid banquet May 24. Rev.
John Comin delivered the Baccalaureate address June 4, at the Presby-
terian Church. June 8 was our Commencement eve, and Dr. Henderson
of U. of M., gave the address. By virtue of their records in High
School, it was found that LeRoy Johnson had earned the place of Vale-
dictorian, and Carleen Klocke that of Salutatorian. As alumni we at-
tended the annual alumni reunion. With the thought that perhaps we
would never all meet again, we closed our High School career with a
picnic at Fisher Lake.
"Thus has ended the famous H. S. career of the class of '16. May

AVING been in a state of ill health and distraction for the past
few months, caused by the ravages of a sect of demented beings
called the Faculty, we, the Senior Class of '16 do hereby resolve to make
our last will and testament, before we are called to the great beyond,
and have to investigate the surprises of a future state.
As to our fitness and qualification in making this document, we hold
that no doctors, lawyers, or any other purgers of the human race would
hold council over an assembly containing our self sustaining beings for
the sake of hearing themselves talk. However, we leave that for your
superiors to judge.
SEC. I. Our good behavior in class meeting we bequeath to the
Faculty and Ward teachers, to be used in their monthly meetings. fFor
the benefit of Mr. Crawford.J
SEC. II. Not having enough extra hearts, and owing to the fact
that our clubs aren't trump, and because diamonds are so high priced,
we have nothing to give the Juniors but our spade.
SEC. III. To the Silly Slushy Sophomores we bequeath our ficti-
tious love for chaperons present at all times.
SEC. IV. After vain attempts to find a suitable gift for the Fresh-
men, we come to the conclusion of giving them nothing, for they would
not know enough to take it, anyway.
SEC. I. Leo Ash requests that his affinity to "Waffles" be forever
buried, for the benefit of wandering hoboes, who would otherwise have
an added delicacy for which to hunger.
SEC. II. Rachel Hayman bequeaths her expertness in discovering
hydrogen by the "elevated" process to all future greenies in chemistry.
SEC. III. Warren Cochran wills his rare collection of hair pins
found in his auto on Monday mornings to Mr. Chapel for use in labora-
SEC. IV. Madge Kline wills her frivolity and fast mode of living
to Mr. DeLong to be used when thought necessary.
SEC. V. Paul Tompkins wills his superior knowledge of physics to
Ruth Pollock. fPoor Ruthll
SEC. VI. Carleen Klocke wills her "faculty" for asking questions to
SEC. VII. Pete Major wishes to bestow his gracefulness upon Rena
SEC. VIII. Lowell Weinberg bequeaths his over supply of "engin-
uity" in tearing his Ford to pieces to Carl Reed.
SEC. IX. Lucy Campbell wills her paying position as art model to
SEC. X. The Godshalk brothers will their popularity to any one
who will take it.
SEC. XI. Doris Place bequeaths her "string of beaux" to Leola
Schweitzer with the provision that she herself may use one of them
SEC. XII. Merrill Noss wills his "perpetual cud" to Alice Pierce.
SEC. XIII. Clare Zander does hereby faithfully bestow his inherited
handsomeness to Cecil Bryer.

Rhinies. We therefore dutifully bestow upon them their deserved

ELLO Central! Give me the International Wirelessg I want to
talk with Miss Doris Place, Seoul, Korea."
"Hello, Doris? Yes, this is Jeannette! I'm really, truly way back
herein Threefhversoncernore. Itdoesseenigood. NVhaUsthat? VVhy,
I've been here just today but I've seen nearly all our old friends and l
have so much to tell you. I'm sorry you couldn't come along: but you,
with all your little missionaries to train must do your duty, as you say.
I'm going to begin at the beginning and tell you all about our old class-
mates just as I've met them to-day.
"First of all I came all the way from New York in the 'Weinberg
Fdyerf VVe heard about theniin Berhn, you'H renunnber, and how
famous they were. Strange to say the only other two passengers were
Rhea hhher and Paul Tonuidns They too, were conung to Three
Rivers to spend their Christmas vacation. What? O, Rhea is in a hair
dressing establishment in Philadelphia and Paul is a tailor. At Detroit
we picked up Donald Bromley and Earl Jewell the rivals. You see Don-
ald has succeded Henry Ford and Earl is manager of the Saxon. Such
a time as we had trying to persuade them to lay aside their disagreements
and for the Christmas vacation, at least. be friends again.
"However it surely was a jolly crowd that finally alighted in Three
Rivers. Just before we came to the city Lowell called our attention to
'Hank' Schweitzer whom we saw on the farm. He is still following
that occupation though you would hardly know the place: it's so modern.
"Now I suppose you are anxious to know about Frank and Clare and
Charlie. They are all movie stars: the most famous in the United States.
"Donald Major? Why I found him busily writing books on subjects
so deep I can't even remember them. The best photograph shop is run
by Clarence and Alva Godshalk. Merrill Noss is a baker. Yes. Willard
Balch is the undertaker and Howard Reed a hardware merchant. War-
ren Cochran is the operator here in the telephone oflice, and Leo Ash owns
a thriving establishment making irons for waliles.
"No, I'm not forgetting Bea. She will arrive tomorrow. She is a
famous Suffragist and comes in a special car with her companions. Grace
Lassance and Mae Kaiser.
"Carleen I found giving Domestic Science lessons. No, I know
she never took that course but waitfshe was teaching it in her own
kitchen to her own daughters.

tained at a reception to-night. Leroy Johnson is to be the speaker of
the evening and Lola Schweitzer is going to sing. We are all so anxious
for the time to come.
i'Last but not least-in five minutes the six o'clock train is due here
on which arrives the president of the United States-Harold Schall. So
don't keep me waiting any longer will you? Wish me a Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Years just as I do you and say 'goodbye'."
Suppose Glee Wolf was the thinnest man alive,
Or Harry Andrews a Latin shark,
Or Warren Cochran would be a bachelor,
Or Rachel Hayman a ballet dancer.
Suppose Ernest Knapp was really angelic for a whole day,
Or Margaret Scidmore were going down stairs without stub-

Suppose you heard the voice of Charlie Braden from a phono-

"At the End of the Rainbow"
HIS, the First of a series of plays given by the Senior Class during the
year, is an interesting three-act farce centering around Merrill Noss
as Robert Preston, a lawyer, and Lola Sweitzer as Marion Dayton,
Preston's ward. The scene is laid in a college town at a time when
interest is at fever heat because of a football game about to be played
with a rival college. Clare Zander as Douglas Brown, a gridiron hero
from another college, is in town on business and to distract attention en-
terscohege. Beathce biadery,in the person of Phylhs Lane,induces
Brown to play at the request of Alva Godshalk, who takes the part of
The villainess, whose part is played by Jeannette King, is forced with
her mother, Blanch Welty, to admit eventually that their cunning wiles
have not been sufficient to decieve the imp, Doris Place, a college fresh-
man, who exposes their trickery.
When Marion's effort to save Preston's secretary, whose part is
played by Harold Schall, is brought to Preston's attention, through the
exposure of Louise's duplicity, he discovers that he loves her and their
dream of the pot of gold at "the end of the rainbow" is realized.
Ample amusement is afforded by the newly-Weds, Clarence Godshalk
as Dick Preston and Nelle Judd as Mrs. Preston, in their experiences
with their maid and butler, Carleen Klocke and Warren Cochran, while
college life is seen in a sorority, is shown by action of the members of the
Theta Phi, Grace Lassance, Helen Baker, Lucy Campbell, Marie White-
night and Rhea Miller. Madge Kline as the maid with the taste for litera-
ture, lives in the articles that she reads to such an extent that she amuses
the audience considerably by her ability to see what she reads. The play
was of interest throughout and the characters portrayed well the Hcti-
tious personages they represented.
GENUINE oldffashioned melodrama, with a polite villain, a mis-
judged hero, a deserted wife, an innocent maiden rescued at the
alter, an otlicious clown and a Deacon with failings, was rendered as the
mid-year play by the Seniors. Other characters were a southern matron,
whose dignity was Well carried by Carleen Klocke, a youthful spinster
with curls, portrayed to a nicety by Madge Kline, whose ediciency in
managing "the horrid men" kept even the obdurate deacon in subjection.
The plot had as its source the desire for revenge combined with a lust
for gold, rose to a climax in the exposure of crime and resulted in the
forgiveness and reunion of a father and daughter, with wedding bells for
"Miss Amelia." The tragic parts were well sustained by Merrill Noss
aud Beatrice Madery in both of whom self-forgetfulness and feeling of
the persons played was commendable. Comedy was generously inter-
spersed throughout by Clare Zander as the Deacon, Clarence Godshalk
as Pete the "poor orphan colored boy" and Harold Schall as Billy a 'idull
ignorant country lout." Charles Rowe was well suited to play the part
of George Graff whose innocence of a theft charged to him led him to
discover the real thief and with the assistance of Pete, expose him and
prevent his marriage with the heiress, Helen Thornton, played by Jean-
Other players who helped immeasurably in making the play a suc-
cess were Doris Place, as maid, Willard Balch as the cheated organ grind-
er raging for "Ze two dollars," Earl Jewell a competent policeman,
Mary Weaver of the eighth grade who represented a small girl very
naturally, and Paul Tompkins as the solemn Parson Brownlow.
All the players Worked faithfully, and were rewarded by the praise
of all who saw the performance. fillfss Taylor.

A helper of the mind, a useful creation,
Proceeding to the overworked brain?
I see yet, in form as palpable
As that which I used to use:
Thou marshall'st me the way I was to gog
As such an instrument I used to use.
My work made fools of other classmates:

T has been decreed that I shall be able to prophecy truthfully any-
thing that I shall try, so I have elected to ascertain the future for-
tunes of my Sophomore classmates.
There comes before me a vision of Clark Jacobs gracefully lathering
the face of one of his customers in a small barber shop on State Street,
New Orleans. Nowl see a huge Ford-4, driven by Carl Reed, who invites
me to take a spin around Detroit, his home town, where he is master
mechanic in a large machine shop. As we pass the busy thorofares I see
Donald Whitesell standing near by fullilling the duties of a trafiic cop.
To my right is a huge electric sign, "Pauline Weiss, great contralto, gives
her last entertainment tonight." To my left, "The Idle Hour," a popular
As we glide on Fritz's car seems to grow wings and his place is tak-
en by Frank Helpin, noted airman. We now wing swiftly to San Fran-
cisco where we see below us a huge circus tent bearing the name "Bryer
Bros., animal tamers, assisted by the daring Miss Bole." But we cannot
stop long so on we go to the Pacihc Ocean where I can see a long line of
ships commanded, Frank tells me, by Col. Joseph Meyers.
He now returns to the East where in Boston I recognize Laura Petrie,
the noted militarist, who has been elected mayor with her assistant,
After alighting from my ride I inquired the way to a famous cafe
which Iheard was conducted by "Ching Fu," or John Moore: coming out
of here I took a jitney bus driven by my old friend Elgy Slack towards
the dock where Ed Drumm was custom oflicer. As we went past I thought
Ed called out to me: but I awoke to find myself in Commercial Geography
class, after Miss Eldridge had just called on me to recite.

The Winning of the Medal
ENTLEMEN may cry, 'Peacel Peace! but there is no peacef Oh
dear me," sighed pretty Katherine Moore, "why did Patrick
Henry ever make such a speech anyway, or, if he had to make it, Why
did some person go and print it? It's simply my bugbear, I can't learn
all that polite nonsense in it, and the contest is only two weeks od. I
suppose you know all of your declamation, Prue'?"
"Why, I think I'm sure of it. But really, Katherine, you mustn't
talk that way about Patrick Henry. Just think! we're free, Katy, free!
We don't belong to England, as we would have done if it were not for
Patrick Henry's speach. I may be queer and quaint as every one says,
Katy, but I'm patriotic anyway, and that's not queer although I'm afraid
it is a little bit quaint."
This was the conversation that took place in one of the halls of the
Oakdale High School. Katherine Moore was a well formed young girl,
with light curly hair and serious blue eyes. Her beautiful, full mouth
was drooping now, and the sparkle had gone from her eyes, while her
shapely forehead was puckered into a scowl. The girl whom she addressed
as "Prue" was Prudence Tucker, the most serious girl in the whole high
school. She had sleek, black hair and such gentle eyes that no one would
ever dream that she had a temper. Yet when displeased, her dark eyes
would snap and her remonstrances, though gentle, were always to the
point, and generally made an effect upon the person to whom she was
The two girls were very different, Katherine being very popular. and
Prudence so very quiet that half of the students in the high school did
not know her.
"Oh, I know it's awful, disgraceful, if you make me say it, for a
person to talk so, but really, Prue, if you had to learn it, it would be
"Probably it would," replied Prudence, now ashamed of her sudden
outburst. "Probably it Would."
"Well goodbye, for the present, Prue, I hope I can get it. Thanks
for your advice, it will help a lot. You're giving, 'Sparticus to the
Gladiators,' aren't you?"
"Yes, and goodbye, Katherine, I know you'll get it," answered Pru-
dence, and she skipped down the hall and into her class room just as the
tardy bell rang.
On the evening before the contest Prudence stopped Katherine on
the way home, to whisper, "I knew you'd do it, Katherine, I just knew
you'd master it."
"My gracious. Prue, you didn't expect I learned it because I wanted
to, did you? Goodness no! I went home after that little lecture you
gave me, and I sat down and learned it. Why didn't you practice tonight?"
"I practiced, only I came early because Miss Woof said she'd help
me more if I did. I must hurry home now and see if my dress needs
letting down for tomorrow."
So they parted, and it was not until the next evening that they met
again. The next night was clear and bright, the kind of an evening that
makes you feel as if you must get out of doors. Many people started
out for walks, and finally drifted to the Oratorical and Declamatory Con-
tests at the high school.
When Prudence arrived at the school, and looked out at the people
she was afraid-afraid of the mass of faces which were watching the
stage so eagerly. In different parts of the room the different classes
were cheering for their contestants. Prudence could hear the yell,"Yea
Moore, Yea Moore, Yea Moore," from several parts of the room. In one
corner the Freshmen were huddled together, a frightened looking group
amid all that throng. Yet to Prudence they looked the nicest, the kind-
est, the best. It was this little group that she was to represent.
At last the principal arose and made a iiowery speech about the speak-
ers, and how hard the teachers had worked, but little did Prudence
hear. She sat as one in a trance, her hands folded in her lap, and her
sober little face, more sober. At last the speakers began, one by one, to
give their declamation. Katherine Moore had delivered the best so far.
The audience applauded her ever and ever so long.
And now, what was the principal saying? Was it her turn? Could
it be possible that all except she had spoken? It didn't seem possible
and yet the principal was saying, " 'Sparticus to the Gladiatorsf Miss
Somehow Prudence got to her feet, and walked up to the platform,
mounted the steps, and stood looking at the audience. Would she never
speak? Would her voice never come? For several minutes she stood
there looking at the people. Then, towards the back of the room, she
saw her mother. She could not, she would not disappoint her. Slowly
her mouth opened, and she formed her first words. Every one leaned
forward, and strained his ears to catch the first words. Then her voice
came, slowly, magnetically, a wonderful voice.
"It had been a day of triumph in Capual" The ice was broken: she
had started: the rest was easier for her now. But she wondered what
made her voice sound so queer. Why did all the people listen so intently?
It seemed strange, and yet she went on, gaining confidence and force with
The people saw the picture when she told of the gladiators in the
deep recesses of the amphitheater, and felt a thrill when she said: "That
very night the Romans landed upon our shore, and the clash of steel
was heard upon our quiet vale."
The audience nearly cried when she spoke of how Sparticus had killed
his friend in the arena, and felt the mighty hatred when she told how
the praetor refused the gladiator the body of his friend.
"And he shall pay thee back till thy yellow Tiber is red as frothing
wine, and in its deepest ooze, thy life blood lies curdledf'
Every one wondered what made his hair stand on end, and the chills
run up and down his back.
Did they hear a lion? No, it couldn't be. Was it just a girl on the
stage? Yes, she was saying, "Hark! hear ye yon lion roaring in his den?"
Every person in the Assembly Room felt a stir of might when Pru-
dence said, "Oh, Comrades! Warriors! Thracians! If we must fight,
let us fight for our selves. If we must slaughter, let us slaughter our
oppressors. If we must die, let us die under the open sky, by the bright
waters, in noble, honorable battle."
She was through. She stood looking at the people, then turned
and walked off the stage. The crowd burst into a thunder of applause.
Prudence won the medal. It was awarded to her amid shouts and
It was the beginning of the happenings of Prudence's life, and she
was no longer the queer, quaint, unknown girl. She was now Prudence
Tucker, winner of the Declamatory Contest.

The True Optimism
"There's nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse,"
Is mighty poor comfort to meg
There's no consolation in thinking my curse
Or another's might heavier be:
But the tide of my courage from ebb turns to How
And with Fortune once more a coquetter
Am I, at the thought that there's nothing I know
So bad that it couldn't be better.

Secretary and Treasurer ---- Beatrice Madery
ER Deutsche Verein reorganized this year early in September, with
the view of helping the beginning German classes master their
We decided to keep our motto, and to hold the meetings on the first
Monday of each month. The program, entertainment, and refreshment
committees were appointed, but owing to the fact that the Seniors had
so much trouble in becoming accustomed to their new situation in life,
it was impossible for us to find out their real value until January third.
At this time we found that those beginning German were progress-
ing rapidly under the direction of Fraulein Pett, also that the com-
mittees were fulhlling their duties, especially the refreshment committee.
From this time on we have met every month. Our meetings have been
well attended this year, as they were all held at the high school, and
were open meetings, thus enabling each to bring his friend. This made
it very nice for all members of the "Married Men's Club."
One special feature of our programs has been to review one of
Wagner's operas at each meeting. These numbers were made more in-
teresting by victrola selections from the operas. "A Three Rivers
Commercial Thirty Years From Now," was produced in a very original
way by Fraulein Elliott and Fraulein Hartman. It has been the aim of
the club to have all the music taken from German composers.

Vice President - - Jeannette King
Secretary - - Alice Pierce
Treasurer - - Ava Comin
HE second year of the Latin Club has passed and has continued to
give it a high place, as a social and educational function of the high
school. The meetings have been held regularly throughout the year and
have kept up the standard of last year.
Interesting programs, consisting of music and a study of the
Ancient Romans, have been given at each meeting.
Our first three meetings were held at the high school. The pro-
grams were on "The Roman Home," "Food of the Romans," and their
"Early and Later Art." Our next meeting was held at the home of
Miss Jeannette King. The study of the Roman people was not taken up
as usual, but an interesting talk was given on "The Trip Thru Yellow-
stone Park," by Carleen Klocke. James King gave a very good talk on
These programs have been excellent and the Latin Club is to be con-
gratulated on the success of its year's endeavor.

In Declamation and Oratory
N the local contests to determine who should represent us in the
county contests, fifteen loyal students competed for supremacy, and
as a result Three Rivers High School was ably represented. Amy
Dunckel was our contestant in the declamatory contest, Mureil Cross in
oratory, and CHaribelIlahn in the Ufree for aH.H
"FREE FOR ALL"
The county contest was held at the Three Rivers High School April
14. It was a good contest: the county was well represented by able
contestants, and there was a large audience. Amy Dunckel won second
place in the declamatory contest, Claribel Rahn second in the "free for
all," and Muriel Cross was awarded third place in oratory. All of our
contestants did very well, and deserve much credit for their work.

N honor of the three hundredth anniversary of the death of England's
greatest poet, which event all English and American schools observed,
the English department presented Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice in
the Assembly hall on May 19, 1916, under the competent direction of
Miss Lefa Taylor.
The actual lines of the poet were given with few omissions, and
costumes and pantomime suited to the play enriched the performance
with color and meaning. The actors, all chosen from the undergraduate
classes, did honor to the play by their sympathetic interpretation of the
characters they represented, while a large and appreciative audience evi-
denced that both the purpose and effect of the entertainment were ap-
Three songs from Shakespeare, prepared for the occasion by the
girls' quintet, added much beauty and life to the program.

High School Chorus
LL high school students including those of the eighth grade are
allowed to enter the chorus, providing, they can sing. One quar-
ter of a credit is granted for one year of chorus work. A thirty-min-
ute rehearsal is given on Monday and on Wednesday morning of each
Splendid interest has been shown in the music work and the enroll-
ment of over ninety, excels that of last year. Girls constitute about
three-fourths of this number. All the boys sing the bass part while the
girl's voices are classified as first and second soprano and alto.
The work done so far has been very satisfactory and is constantly
The chorus sang at various programs given by the high school dur-
ing the year. The latter part of the year's work has been devoted to the
operetta "Snow-White" by Abt.
This operetta is founded on the well known fairy tale of "Snow-
White and the Seven Dwarfs." The music gives an excellent interpre-
tation of the story and the setting is beautiful.
An orchestra has been organized in the high school to assist in giv-
ing the operetta. It will be given the second week in May and promises
to be one of the best entertainments given by the school.

Boy's Glee Club
HIGH SCHOOL Glee Club always arouses enthusiasm and adds
more perhaps, to the standing of a school than any other musical
organization and Three Rivers High School is fortunate in possessing a
very good Boy's Glee Club.
Until this year no credit has been given for glee club workg in
September a course was outlined whereby one-quarter credit in music
may be obtained, equivalent to that given for one year's workin chorus.
Instead of two thirty-minute periods a week, the glee club meets each
Monday after regular school hours for a rehearsal of forty-five minutes.
The number of boys is limited to sixteen and the more mature
voices are given preference. The voices are divided equally among the
first and second tenors and first and second basses.
The work began with a number of college songs, leading to more
The Glee Club sang at Thanksgiving and at most of the other enter-
tainments given by the high school and always won hearty applause.

E who presents an old truth in a new dress is a public benefactor.
He draws attention anew to an old fact which has lost its appeal
merely through repetition. The city dweller never hears the city roar
because he hears it all the time. We rise in the morning and draw the
curtain to shut from view one of nature's most wonderful phenomena,
the rising of the sun. We rise in the night and gaze with wonder at a
tiny speck of gas in the sky called a comet. But the sun is an old friend
and daily companion, while the comet is a stranger from another world.
He who can take the old sights and sounds and the old truths and make
them live again for us deserves to be called a genius.
Something akin to this was accomplished last winter when the
schools, under the direction of Mrs. Cauffman, the art teacher, gave an
art entertainment in the opera house. Art is used to picture life. It
occurred to Mrs. Cauffman to use life to picture art. The experiment
was a success from beginning to end, the very novelty of it riveting at-
tention from the start. One by one there was made to pass before us
the great masterpieces of the world in sculpture and painting. Origi-
nals copies or reproducuons of these had tune and again appealedin
vain to our dulled senses, but now they were made both literally and
figuratively to live again. Who can forget Millais' "Bubbles?" Is he
not one of our respected citizens, living just around the corner? Or the
cherubs of Raphael's Sistine Madonna, have we not long suspected the
existance of tiny wings concealed beneath their garments as they moved
about among us? Who would have suspected that our boys and girls
would make such charming peasants? Or that our teachers would ap-
pear so natural when done in marble, or come so near the perfect ideal
of the Greek artists?
In estimating the value of the entertainment, the illuminating com-
ments of Mrs. Cauifman, as each masterpiece was unveiled, must not be
overlooked. As a lecturer on art she certainly has no equal in Three
Rivers. The schools are very fortunate in having her on the educational
staff. The entire entertainment will bear repetition.

HE Operetta "Snow-White," written by Abt, was given May 12, by
the High School Chorus and Orchestra. Its story is based upon the
well known fairy tale, "Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs."
The operetta began with the forest scene where Snow-White was
The next scene represented the cottage of the seven dwarfs and their
surprise at iinding little Snow-White asleep on one of their beds.
She decided to remain with them and brighten their forest home.
Then the wicked queen entered and enticed Snow-White to eat the pois-
oned apple. Her apparent death brought sorrow to allg even the wood
nymphs mourned for her. Finally a noble young prince arrived and, by
accident, the bit of poisoned apple fell from Snow-White's mouth and re-
stored her to life. Then there was great rejoicing and Snow-White was
The leading role, Princess Snow-White, was taken by Doris Placeg she
was very pretty in each of her scenes and her beautiful well controlled
voice was like that of a professional.
Beatrice Madery took the part of the fair but wicked queen and her
beauty and clear, rich voice won the admiration of all.
The voice of the mirror was represented by Beatrice Howard whose
sweet sympathetic voice was very pleasing.
Clarence Godshalk was the young prince and no knight of old could
have been more charming.
Frank Everhart and Warren Cochran as the queen's attendants ad-
ded dignity to the scenes in which they appeared. The seven dwarfs
were well represented by Walter Langley, Frank Everhart, Lowell Wein-
berg, Frank Helpin, Donald Major, Ernest Miller and Elgy Slack.
The other members of the chorus took the parts of courtiers, atten-
dants and nymphs and furnished a gay and picturesque company.
The orchestra consisted of Paul Weaver, James Comin, Madeline
Mowrer, Miriam Avery, Pauline Ellett, Harold Hazen, Howard Dobbin,
Donald Arner, Harold Sloan and Pauline Weiss.
Much credit is due to Pauline Weiss for her very able and untiring
work as accompanist.
The music of the operetta was interspersed with readings telling
the story: these were excellently given by Amy Dunckel, Jean Defender-
fer and Muriel Cross.
A wood nymph's drill by the younger girls of the chorus was beau-
tiful and was enjoyed very much.
The whole chorus and orchestra is to be congratulated upon the ex-
cellent way in which the production was rendered.
DOMESTIC SCIENCE was introduced into this school as a prepara-
tion for the girls to go out into life and make good housewives.
Everybody has to prepare for something and so girls who wish to cook
well should prepare for it. Domestic Science is a new course in this
school and of course many wished to take it, but that was impossible.
We are the pioneer class of this subject and hope that we have made a
good enough beginning so that the future classes may desire to go on
The Domestic Science room is located in the basement in the north-
western part of the building. It is about twenty feet wide, thirty feet
long, and nine feet high. We have five cabinets, with four girls work-
ing at each one. Each cabinet has two gas stoves, with two girls work-
ing at a stove. There is a larger cabinet which is used to store the cook-
The main object of the course is to teach the girls how to cook cor-
rectly, set the table. serve meals and how to care properly for a home.
During the year we have served two banquets, the first one to the
High School Faculty and School Board, and the second one to the School
Board and Ward Teachers.
We are sure that the course will be very successful in the future,
and we wish to express our appreciation to Miss Furman for conducting
When Mr. Crawford announced that a half year sewing would be
given girls wishing to take it the second semester, many questions were
asked as: "Who is going to teach?" "Where is it going to be?" "How
much credit do we receive?" These were answered by Mr. Crawford
making the announcement that Miss Matson would teach sewing in the
Physics Laboratory the seventh hour, and one-half credit would be given
for one semester's work.
There were about thirty-eight girls that elected the course. First
we made a silver case of fiannel. Next we made a cretonne bag in which
to keep our work. Many were the colors and combinations, giving the
sewing tables the effect of a rainbow. Seams and stitches, hems, plac-
kets and buttonholes were made for our note-books.
The last part of the semester we made underwear. Many trying
times were experienced by girls who had never before used a sewing ma-
chine. However, after a little practice all were able to make the wheels
go without a backward turn. Our buttonhole samplers brought the great-
est trouble, but we all at last succeeded in our efforts. A Domestic Arts
teacher has been employed for next year and we know this course will
continue to grow and enlarge, because every girl can benefit greatly by
this helpful instruction. The practical subjects are just being introduced
into the T. R. H. S. for the upper classes, and we know that soon sewing
will be one of the most important subjects in the school.
Miss Matson deserves much credit for her success so far in the sew-
ing class and has proven herself etiicient along many lines of work.

The Flag of Distress
AWN was breaking with tropical suddenness on a group of small
There was a crash, followed by piercing feminine shrieks as a boat
containing two occupants was dashed on the rocks which border the islands.
From among the small trees and bushes which cover the island em-
erged a tall, ragged, unshaven man: evidently aroused from his slumber
by the noise. He perceived the wrecked boat and dashed through the
surf to the rescue of the women. Dimly he discerned through the spray
the form of a woman and seizing her in his arms, he bore her ashore.
Having placed the half unconscious body on the beach, he returned for
the other, whom he laid beside her. He then began the work of reviving
them. He perceived that one of the women was luxuriously dressed, and
fine-featured: the other he judged to be her maid.
They soon began to show signs of returning consciousness and the well-
dressedlady arose to a sitting posture, "Oh! Where are we," she ex-
claimed, "Have we you to thank for our rescue?"
"It was nothing," he assured her, "I onlyfu
At this point the maid became aware of his presence and springing
to her feet Hed down the beach crying "Virgin Mary protect! A wild man!"
Her mistress called after her but in vain. "I suppose we must fol-
low her," she said, rising to her feet.
"Allow me to introduce myself," said he. "I am Philip Wartonf'
"My name is Geraldine Campfieldf' she replied. "My father is the
mine owner of whom perhaps you have heard."
"I trust your maid will recover from her fright," said he as they
started down the beach in the direction which the maid had taken.
"Oh yes, she's French you know and very excitable."
"Are you survivors of a wreck?" he asked.
"Yes,i' she replied, "the Yokohama was wrecked yesterday evening.
My maid and myself were placed in a life boat which broke loose from
the ship before anyone else could come aboard. But what island is this
we are on? Is there a settlement near here?"
"This is one of the Boscay Islands. They are uninhabited except
for ourselves, but are owned by the United States. The nearest inhab-
ited place is Hawaii, two hundred miles north-east."
His there a chance for our rescue,H she asked.
"A possibility," he replied, smiling reassuringly. "I will rig up a
Hag of distress on that high headland. I will also fix up a hut for you
and your maid."
"Oh thank you," she said, "being wrecked on an island would be
less terrifyingif there were always knights at hand, to aid and protect one."
il I l I fl fl
A few days later Warton stood in the door way of her hut. "A ship
is approaching," he said, "I think they will see the flag."
"A ship," she cried, "and we shall be rescued. Come let us go watch
"Geraldine," said he sadly, "I cannot go. I must remain here."
"Can't go," she repeated aghast. "Why not?"
"I can't tell you," he replied, "and may I ask you to keep silent con-
cerning my presence here. I will not appear when the boat comes to
take you off so it must now be good-bye. Your stay on this island has
been an oasis in my desert of solitude."
They looked their goodbye without a word, and then she turned and
"Why must he stay," she asked herself, as they walked to a place
where they would be able to see the oncoming ship. "Was he a fugitive
from justice? Nof' she told herself, as she pictured his honest face in
her mind. "He cannot be a criminal."
"Ohl Won't it be grand to be back again in civilization," the maid
broke in on her thoughts. "You can make your debut as was planned."
"Oh hush! Yvonne," said her mistress.
"After all." she told herself, "what am I going back to? Dances,
parties, pleasure. Yes, but must always think of a man on a tropical is-
land,-alone. The gay social life will seem a mockery of happiness."
Suddenly she broke into a run and on coming to the rocky headland
she scrambled up its rugged sides to where the flag of distress waved in
the breeze. She seized the pole, wrenched it from its place, and hurled
it to the ground.
The ship sailed on unwarned.
K if l 1 -I -I
Several days later they were strolling along the beach. Suddenly
he halted, his eyes fastened upon a point of the horizon. He whipped a
pair of binoculars from his pocket and brought them to a focus. "Nine,"
he murmured, "It must be they." Then he turned and ran toward the
other end of the island where his hut was located. She followed slowly,
amazed at his actions.
She met him coming back. "We will soon leave the island," he an-
nounced jubilantly, "but in the mean time I have work cut out for me.
I must keep watch of that Heet which is coming." He saw the question
in her eyes. "Yes," he laughed, "I suppose it does seem queer on the sur-
face, but I will explain it all when it is over."
He took from his hut a blanket, provisions and a white flag with a
black square in the center.
"You and your maid may come if you wish and spend the day Watch-
ing," said he.
From among the bushes they spied on the approaching ficet. One
of the ships was a hostile looking cruiser while the other eight were evi-
dently freighters. None of the ships displayed a Hag. While they were
yet some distance from the islands the cruiser slipped ahead of the others
and scouted among the islands as if looking for hidden danger.
The Heet anchored in a bay formed by two islands. Men swarmed
into boats and were rowed ashore. Immediately there was activity on the
island, the brush was cleared away, sheds were erected and a dock begun.
"Come tomorrow," said Warton as they were leaving him that eve-
ning, "I think there will be fresh surprises for you."
The next day while they were eating their noon day meal, they were
startled by the crack of a big gun. They sprang to their feet and beheld
about two miles out at sea, three white cruisers racing for the islands,
their guns fiashing and crashing. At their masts fioated the stars and
Great consternation reigned on the island. The cruiser fired a few
random shots, and in the hope of escaping, slipped around an island.
Warton then seized the Hag and began signaling the American cruis-
ers. Immediately two of them changed their course. rounded the island
behind which the fugitive was hiding, and opened fire. The enemy ship
retreated firing back in desperation, but at last, the foreign ships after
a brief resistance received a vital blow and ran up the white Hag.
The freighters surrendered without resistance. A boat was seen to
leave one of the cruisers for the island on which were the watchers.
"Come," said Warton, "we leave the island now."
l' 1- 1- U H 1
Geraldine and Warton leaned on the cruiser's rail and watched the
green spots of land fade into the blue horizon as they were swiftly
"You promised to explain it all," she reminded him.
"So I did," he replied, "and so I will. I am a member of the Unit-
ed States diplomatic service in Japan. We learned through spies that
Japan was comtemplating the establishment of a secret naval base on the
Boscay Islands. This would be a great menace to Hawaii, and our west-
ern coast, for it would enable Japan to carry on war in these waters and
still have a plentiful amount of supplies.
"I was secretly put ashore on the island with a wireless outfit with
which, upon seeing the enemy fleet approaching, Iwas to inform our
cruisers, which were in these waters. Everything has terminated in our
favor and Japan's plans have been nipped in the bud."
"But won't this cause war?" she asked.
"Oh no," he replied, "Japan knows that she would be handicapped
by not having a naval base near the scene of action. As for Uncle Sam,
well, you know he is patient and unprepared."

Three Rivers Public Schools
From the Historical Collection Compiled by Abiel Fellows Chapter D. A. R.
BY MRS, FLORA THOMAS DEFENDERFER, '94
N the first of July, 1837, eight persons met and organized a district
school board and voted S100 to buhd a schoolhouse 24 by 30 feet
on the ground now the site of the present office of the R. M. Kellogg
Company. Later it was voted to add a tax not to exceed S50 to complete
the bunding. It was then Ihsthct nuniber one of Bucks,but nowfin
Lockport. The school building. which was of plank was completed Dec-
ember first, and the posts were ten feet high. The annual meeting was
called to order October twenty-first at "early candle light," the record
says, and the electors proceeded to vote to have the studding of the new
school house filled in with wood, laid in clay mortar, "if any one would do it
reasonably." The price was probably meant to be limited, and not the
manner in which the work should be done.
There were 46 children in the district between the ages of 5 to 17.
Five dollars were appropriated for a library, and a sum sulhcient to get
a suitable case. H. Bowman was appointed librarian. The first school
board members were Dr. Richardson, S. P. Adams, D. Francisco, I. Cros-
sette, John Cowling and John C. Bassett. In 12440 the school house was re-
moved to the public square west of the school house lot. It was subse-
quently sold and moved again to the present site of the First Ward Grade
School, opposite Franklin Square.
In 1851 a brick schoolhouse was built on the same site at a cost of
251200. The district adopted the union school system September 26, 1859,
and William H. Payne was hired as principal. In Professor Payne's
"Some Souvenirs of My Professional Life" we read: "In the early sum-
mer of 1858, by a train of circumstances quite complex but unnecessary
to explain, I was selected principal of the Union School of Three Rivers,
St. Joseph county, with my wife as my assistant, at a joint salary of 28700,
and a little later, on a hot day in August we were trundled into the pleas-
ant village by the stage coach from Kalamazoo, and set down, bag and
baggage, at the house Of Daniel Francisco, were we were to hnd a de-
lightful home for the next few years. A necessary preliminary, however,
was an interview with the Board of Township Examiners, but the ordeal
was safely passed." Payne names as "men of action and infiuence as a
noble race of pioneers-Prutzman, Moore, Francisco, Lothrop, Frey,
Millard, Clark, Hicks, Roberts, Millard, Egery, Richardson, Lyon, Dick-
enson, Sill, Wilson, Bateman, Choate, Slenker, Rich, Ranney, Kelsey,
Crossette, Hiles, Throp, Spencer, Chadwick, Morse, Fassett, Cole, Clute,
and others, who had conquered the conditions of noble and wholesome
living, by industry and thrift, and were now ambitious to place their
home village on a high plane of intellectual and moral well being."
In the summer of 1859 a front of six rooms was built on the old
building and again I quote Prof. Payne: "John Goode-son used to say that
I planned the new building to fit the front door of the old school house
which was too good to be thrown away." This building burned in 1889.
Besides grading the schools and getting them into good running or-
der, Professor Payne worked with John M. Gregory, the State Supt. of
Schools, in organizing teachers institutes with marked skill and success
and of moulding public opinion into an intelligent appreciation of good
schools. In the school report of W. H. Payne in the W9St9l'U Cronicle of
May 17, 1860, we find that record was kept of the days the scholar
attended school, the number times tardy, and times whispered during
the term. For instance:
NAME DAYs ATTENDED TIMES TARDY WHISPERED
S T 63 17 6
Mf- Fie 44 28 7
C P-'ff 60 0 U
J Mi 60 0 2
In a report of School No. 7, with Miss Ruth Hoppin as teacher, under
date of November 8, 1860 the following names of scholars were absent from
school without permission of parent or guardian: Marrnet Slcnker days,
John Feas 15 minutes. The paper- spoke of Miss Jennie Fyfe as being an
assistant teacher at Choate and Bassett's Hall. In the Western Cronicle
of January 31, 1861 an article appears signed by Prof. Payne that the
school was in a very prosperous condition and required the attention of
seven teachers and the scholars numbered 376. When the school let out
July twenty-six the school numbered 434, 62 pupils for each teacher, the
principal included. The News Reporter of April 25,1863 says: "The
Managers of the Three Rivers Public Schools have voluntarily raised the
wages of Wm. H. Payne for the next two years. Miss Goodell is now
Perceptress in the room lately vacated by the most faithful teacher and
most earnest and able advocate of Education, Miss Ruth Hoppin." In
the list of instructors for the Fall term of 16 weeks beginning August
31, 1863 we read the names of Wm. H. Payne, Principal: Ruth Hoppin,
Perceptressg Elizabeth Rovertson, Intermediate Dept.g Julia Goodell, 3rd
Primaryg Amelia S. Hutchinson, 2nd Primary, Rachael M. Dodge, 1st
Primary and 10th grade: Elizabeth Parkinson, Ist Primary and 9th
grade. The school had a total of 405 pupils. District No. 4 had its
school house in the second ward of this city, and was organized separately
and independently September 10, 1855, four years before the First Dis-
trict graded their school. At the first annual meeting J. W. French was
elected Moderator and the people voted to build a school house 26 by 30
ttwo feet wider than first ward's first buildingl. The structure was
built on the S. W. corner of W. F. Arnold's farm at a cost of 33500. The
teacher's wages for the first year amounted to 8219.97 Eleven years
after the people voted to raise S1000 for a new building and the fol-
lowing year vote another 31000, and the site was changed to the N. W.
quarter of section twenty containing two acres. Two years later the
building standing in the second ward was erected at a cost of about
353500. This school was graded in 1869 and the first and fourth districts
were united in 1889. Payne was Supt. of our schools seven years and
was followed by Simpkins 2 years, Clark 3, Stone 6, Baker 2, Kern a frac-
tion of a year, Howell 3, Osinga 2, Cheever 4, Hewitt 2, Jackson 3, And-
erson 4, Webster 2, McElroy 6, Tyler 4, Wiggers 4, and we hope to re-
cord a goodly number of years to the present incumbent, Floyd W.
After the building in first ward burned in 1889, one was erected
which served as a grade and high school, but this building also was con-
sumed by flames and the present one was built in 1904. The following
year the High School was built on 3rd Avenue and it's capacity is sorely
tried: more room is badly needed. There are five buildings at present:
the High School and grade buildings in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th wards.
The Board of Education consists of Murray J. Huss, E. P. Hart, Bishop
E. Andrews, Henry P. Barrows, and C. S. Eberly fDr. Eberly being
appointed by the board to fill out the unexpired term of John Grifliths,
deceasedl. Mention might be made here that at the expiration of Mr.
Andrews' term in 1917, he will have served 30 years as an efficient mem-
ber of the Board of Education of the Three Rivers Public Schools. Now
as the end of this paper is clearly in sight, I am going to again quote
from Professor Payne, which will I think touch a sympathetic cord in the
minds of my hearers. i'The scene is in a little Saginaw valley. The
evening had come for me to lecture at a teachers institute, an occasion
always full of dread and foreboding. The music for the evening was
furnished by an improvished choir, and they sang for the first number
"Tell Us the Old, Old Story." The lecture followed and at its termina-
tion, the choir very appropriately wound up the proceedings by singing
"Hallelujah, it is Done."
Ralph B. C"Dutch',5 Adams
This is the man who makes things go,
From skylight above to the engine below.
He's plumb full of business and chock full of steam,
For the Janitor's business is no sort of dream.
He's plied the big tugboat on Michigan's bay,
And sawmills he's guided up Saginaw's way.
He can tell you fish stories, and other ones too,
And the wonderful thing is, they're all of them true!
He knows all the tricks both of mice and young men-
When they put one over, he fools them again.
Long years of good service attest well his station:
Only gray-whiskered mice give him bad reputation.
He sweeps, dusts, and Fixes, and turns on the "juiceg"
And when the boys need it, he gives them the deuce.
Kind-hearted and clever, his reproof the boy heeds it:
For each mother's son of them knows that he needs it.

Others that had previously lived and finished were mere understudies

Among the most honored and highest is she that manages the
shekels. "B, My Dearie" plead all the young chiefs, but the woman
sagely shakes her Coronet of dark braids and says, "Nay, Nay," and

earthly dross. And then, O ye children, render homage to the house of

O woe is me that these two shall pass away!

over the pit falls into the land of jingling laughter, and mirth. Eat,
