Hail to the Class which in triumph advances!
Honor'd and bless'd be the strong Senior line!
Soon in the world they'll be taking their chances,
But all for Old Timber will ne'er cease to pine!
May Heaven Watch 0'er you,
As life you begin anew,
Oh Seniors, so happy and carefree today,
While Timber your praises sing,

Seniors of Timber, yo ho! hip, hurray!

As we look back four short years into our school life we see
a happy group of twenty Freshmen bravely marching up to the
new two-year accredited High School for enrollment. As we
had been told of the joy which accompanied the high school
course we entered without the least fear and bravely faced the
onslaughts of Latin and Algebra. But alas! To our dismay when
we reached our second mile stone only fourteen remained.
The Sophomore year found the young Freshies of the year
before laboring hard with their old foe, Geometry. Only nine
of the brave Sophs survived the months of toil and anguish.
The Junior year was undoubtedly the most exciting year of
our school life. The nine sturdy Juniors were then striving hard
to out-wit the four honorable Seniors of that year. This was
plainly shown during Junior week when we entertained with
music, yells, and readings.
The Senior year found only eight of the original class ready
for work, but we joyfully welcomed four new members, one of
whom we lost after a time. This year has been the most pleas-
ant of all. We have bravely faced the storm and tumult and
are at last prepared to enter life's school with a clear path be-
fore us. The greatest joy of this year has been the Hying of
our colors, the old red, white, and blue, before the Sophomores.
Through months of toil and preparation we are now ready,
with aching hearts to bid Goodbye to Old Timber High, our
teachers and classmates, and step out into the great wide world.
As we leave, we join in wishing to all a happy future and wish
heartily to thank the faculty for their kindness, patience, and
co-operation throughout our school life.
tl: 2: 2:
Dare to be right, dare to be true,
You have a work that no other can dog
Do it so bravely, so kindly, so well,
Angels will hasten the story to tell.

Who think the Freshmen are great bores.
Emerson loses more pencils and books by the score
Than would stock a store
For a year or more.
Only Mildred with her quiet, meek ways,
With no idle hours and all busy days. '
And Vern's queer remarks and his odd replies,
Sometimes foolish and often wise,
Often brilliant for one of his size,
As a meteor hurled
From a planet world.
Only Freshmen who have only begun,
Even now have the record 'for work and fun.
In the next three years, if all go well,
What heights theyill reach, no prophet can tell.

Whose chief occupation is quarreling with sis.

Still her dimples show gaily and bright is her glance.

But a cute little Freshman has stolen his heart.

Who's vainly and hopelessly hunting a beau.

Who's impatiently waiting for June 6, to pass.

When hard work strikes him, he surely is plucky.

Due to the influenza epidemic, We were compelled to cancel
several basket ball games, but otherwise this year has been very
successful, taken from the athletic side. Our basket ball team
completed its schedule in whirlwind fashion, with only one defeat
marked up against it.
At the end of the season the annual banquet was held, at
which R. Addy was elected captain of the team for the next
season. Those who received numerals are Hovenden, Clinebell,
Callaway, R. Addy, L. Addy and Glasford. L. Addy acted in his
natural capacity as master of ceremonies, and at the urgent re-
quest of all present, the retiring captain gave a speech, which
was heartily applauded.
The chances for a good team next year seem bright, for al-
though four of the team were slated to graduate, the prospects
at present are that at least one will be back with us.
As the spring opens our attention is turned to base ball and
the track. An unusually large number are out for the team and
we hope to have one of the best in Central Illinois. We have
purchased a complete track equipment and from all appearances
several of our boys will bring back medals from the county meet.

The senior class-play, "Valley Farm," was given first at Glas-
ford, February twenty-eighth. In spite of the bad weather
there was a large attendance and the audience was well pleased
with the show, some pronouncing it the best ever seen in Glas-
ford. The class was very appreciative of the fact that so many
people came out in the storm to see the play.
March first, the troupe left Glasford, amid great excitement
on Ye Olde T. P. Sa W. bound for Trivoli, via Canton and Farm-
ington. Much amusement was afforded the passengers by high
school yells and songs. Quite a flurry was created in Canton as
the cast, with banners fiying, proceeded to the Interurban Sta-
tion. A little tin horn, the mascot of the troupe, vied with the
coarse whistle of the car in announcing the approach to Farm-
After an enjoyable trip, the cast arrived at Trivoli about noon
via "Caboose," and immediately proceeded to the hall and be-
gan the work of getting ready for the performance. The stage
decorations were creations of art, paper leaves affording an ex-
cellent camouflage to the bare branches of Alvira's maple trees.
The lamp resistance board, brought from the laboratory, fur-
nished brilliant foot-lights, producing silhouettes thru the hand
made calico curtains.
The play was warmly received at Trivoli, and the cast was
royally entertained. It was with a feeling of regret that the
troupe left the next day for Farmington, via hand car, enroute
At the request of a number of people, the play was given
for the second time in Glasford, April twenty-fifth. This was
attended by an even larger crowd than was the first appearance.
The total door-receipts were over one hundred eighty dollars.

Zlirwlimen illetter in Santa Gilzum H
Glasford, Illinois, Dec. 10, 1918.
Dear Santa Claus:
We are a little class of seven Freshmen, working very hard
to become Seniors some day. We've been very good children,
always obeying our teachers and making the highest grades pos-
sible. Now in order to help us complete our school life success-
fully, we should like you to send us a few easy couches for the
office, a sliding board, a Latin pony, a rubber doll for Mary, a
year's grades for Vern, a girl for Emerson, a toy engine for Elza,
a farmer boy for Mildred, a toy laboratory for John, and a date
with Lester for Gladys.
Now, Dear Santa, this is about all, only we should like you to
send us a whole lot of gum so we can stick up the seats in the
study hall. Your little friends,
T. T. H. S. FRESHMEN.
4. DI. :K
The Seniors were born for wisdom,
The Freshies were born for play,
But the Sophs are the cause of our worry
And the problem grows greater each day.
We Seniors have fretted together,
But our efforts were all in vaing
Oft, we gave up the job as hopeless
And returned to our studies again.
We have hopes for the Sophs in the future,
Tho' their present be ever so black,
And we'll give them credit for courage,
Which it seems they never will lack.

Several members of the High School decided to take the
teacher's examination in March. A busy preparation followed.
Night classes were conducted by Mr. Johnson for two weeks.
The examination was held at the Court house March the twenty-
second and twenty-third. Those who took the examination were
Theda Lightbody, Mildred Craycraft, Floy Scarcliff, Bessie Craig,
Ruth Northrup, Faye Tindall, George Clinebell, Walter Callaway
and Glenn Hovenden. Six of these received second grade cer-
tificates, the other three received good grades in all but a few
subjects. Only twelve second grade certificates were issued in
this county: six of these went to members of the High School.
Those who have already secured schools for next year are Glenn
Hovenden, Principal of the Trivoli schoolg Faye Tindall, Cherry
Forkg Ruth Northrup, Harkers Cornersg Bessie Craig, Centennialg
George Clinebell, Bramble school, near Brimfield. As this goes
to press it is reported that Walter Callaway is hired at Saylor.

A great percent. of the students entering the Timber Township
High School come from this room. This year there are eleven
graduates from the eighth grade, and most of them will enter
the high school in September, 1919. We feel very grateful to the
high school faculty and the Senior Class of '19 for allowing us
this space. W. H. Partridge, Principal.
Here's to our Intermediates
So loyal and true
To all their minor duties,
For greater tasks they'll do.
They are always Willing and ready,
And all hardships soon o'ercome,
For they hope to climb much higher
When their smalier tasks are done,
And they all hope to be Seniors
True to Timber Township Highg
'They are striving now to win
All honors due them bye and bye.
For theyill graduate with honors
As all other Seniors do,
Step by step they climb the ladders
Suiefy their hopes must come true.

Our primary room is a veritable kiddies, paradise. The elves
from fairyland and the little people of the Woods have come to
live on its walls. Flowers bloom in the windows, sand table and
Work table furnish occupation for little hands.
Sometimes our primary folks grow tired of lessons so they plan
a little special program. On Thanksgiving they have a dinner and
each child brings a picture of something to eat, the name of
which he has learned to spell. At Christmas time our primary
room is beautifully decorated in honor of Old Santa's visit, and
the other rooms are invited in to enjoy the fun.
Just recently our little people planned a surprise for us, and
during General Exercise period a long line of tiny tots, in gay
costumes, marched through our room to the tune of "Here's to
UncleSammie." Up and down our aisles they trudged, the sol-
dier, the little drummer boy, Jack Tar, Queen of the May and
the Red Cross Nurse, and then they went to pay a visit to the

of your labor.
It is labor in a condensed form, convenient to exchange
for the products of the labor of others, or to hold in stor-
age for use in later years when your strength fails.
Put Avvay a Part of Today's Work--
of tomorrow's work, of every day's work, NOW, while you
have earning capacity.
Your stored labor will support you in comfort in a few
years. Can you save a dollar every day to put in the bank?
Or 50 cents? Or 25 cents? If so, you ought to be doing it.
It's a pity to Waste all these good years, but many are
doing it, '

It is the aim and ambition of The Glasford Gazette to keep
its equipment ahead of the times, so that the newspaper,
and the other printed matter it puts out, may reflect credit
on the community which it represents.
The mechanical type-setting, or more properly speaking,
type-casting machine is considered one of the great inven-
tions of the age.
The type-casting machine recently installed by The Ga-
zette is one of the latest improved models, and enables us
to do the best class of work, of which this Annual is an ex-
ample, at reasonable prices.
It is the desire of The. Gazette to serve the people of the
community. We appreciate being given the opportunity
to do so.
