Before entering into the more frivolous contents of our book we wish to
express our thanks to all whom it may concern for the opportunity we have had of
obtaining a high school education, and to assure them that we appreciate it far
more than any other gift which they could have bestowed upon us for we realize
that, "Education is a companion which no misfortune can depress-no crime
destroy-no enemy alianate-no despotism enslave."
We have many things to be grateful for, our school building with its modern
convenience, the privilege our parents have given us of taking up and completing
the high school course, and the splendid corps of teachers which the school
board obtained as our instructors.
Although we had the trials and difficulties which all seniors must endure we
have, on the whole, enjoyed our work and we feel ourselves indebted to each indi-
vidual member of the faculty for the careful instructions which we have received
in their respective departments. We feel that it is largely to them that our success
thus far is due. The lessons which they have taught us have made impressions on
our hearts that will last forever.
Each and all of them have been very kind to us and it is with great pleasure
that we dedicate our little book to Miss Elinor K. Towne, our Latin teacher, who
has been a most faithful friend to us thruout our four years struggle with "the dead
language" winning our love and respect by her kindness and impartiality.
The other teachers have been equally considerate of us and we wish to assure
them that they will not be forgotten by the seniors of 1910, but that wherever that
may be in years to come the best wishes of all who were this year students in the
Tipton High School will be for their success.
Mrs. Matthews the librarian has been very helpful to us in our supplementary
researches and the interest that she has taken in the school and in the progress of
the students has endeared her to them all as one of the be'st friends of education
in Tipton. Not only the Senior Class but the teachers as well are gratified to have
her picture take a place with theirs in the TIPTONIAN.

One of the most joyous, interesting and instructive events which are crowded
into the long looked for Commencement week, is the meeting of the Tipton High
School Alumni Association in its annual banquet given in honor of its distinguished
guests, the incoming class. As feasting has always been recognized as the highest
mode of appreciation since the "Killing of the fatted calf", an elaborate spread,
equaled only by the Ancient Epicurians, is served at that time, and a program both
instructive and entertaining is rendered, by members of the Association which be-
speaks rare talent and also a careful education which reflects an honor on both
past and present instructors of the T. H. S.
While the iirst class to graduate from the T. H. S. was in the year 1878, yet the
Association was never fully organized until 1894, as the body met at irregular
intervals until that time. Since then each year vies with the other in making history
of a more elaborate kind, along the line of entertaining the new classes which are
welcomed into the Alumni Association. At the present time there is a membership
of 277 with the welcome addition of the 26 Seniors of 1910. 'Tis a grand good time
when grey haired men and women renew their youth with the joyous mirthful lads
and maidens who have just passed through the gates which they themselves have
closed after them years ago.
School Day Stems, and "that reminds me" anecdotes hearty hand shakes with
friends met only on these occasions, and a general "Auld Lang Sync" round up, is
indulged in at this time. Laughter mingles with tears, for even the gay sceans of
feasting and festivity can not dispell the memory of another Alumni, gathered
from our own ranks, slowly and steadily forming on "The other Side." T'is an
evening long to be remembered and looking backward we repeat:

Is in what future has in its store,

The English Course.
English is the broadest subject in the high school curriculum, for it presup-
poses as a basis for work a foundation in many other subjects. The course is
planned to continue carefully the work of the grades aud is spiral in its nature,
since it comprises a constant review of past years work in English and demands,
besides, that the pupil shall draw continually on his knowledge of history, foreign
languages and science.
The English course in the Tipton High School is in two divisions, literature
and composition. The latter consists ofa careful study of the various forms of
discourse, with oral and written practice in each. There is also a general survey
of the different verse forms, and opportunity is given for poetic composition.
Under the head of composition a study of some of the common errors in English
speech is made, and the pupil is trained to avoid them. It is not expected that
high school students shall develop into poets, essayists, or novelists, but that they
shall learn how to write an interesting description, to tell a story in an entertaining
way, and to give a careful explanation or direction.
Literature offers a more attractive field for the student. Here he is permitted
to read some of the best works of the best poets and prose writers of America and
England. Through these he not only becomes acquainted with pure English,
thereby improving his own, but he learns to know, also, some of the principal
motives which control human action. Cooper's stories of pioneer life, beset by
Indians, inspire him with the courage of his forefathersg guided by Irving he sees
the wonders of the old world: with Scott he wakens to hear the huntsman's horn
in the Scottish Highlandsg he dreams the dream of Shakespeare's hero or recoils
from the base nature of the character who sacrifices honor and conscience to ambi-
tion. It is not the aim to have the pupil make an exhaustive study of any authors'
works, but rather to become familiar with one or two masterpieces of several, so
that he may gain from them a knowledge of the progress in thought throughout the
centuries. In order that his ideas of literature and its writers may be related, a
part of the time in the Junior and Senior years is spent in studying text-books on
the history of England and American literature.
The high school graduate who has completed the English course must realize
that he has only begun to think. Down the vista of years to come, the song-makers
of all the ages, those who love old stories, and the writers of fairy lore are beckon-
ing him where he need never be lonely while he lives in the world of books.

Some at work, some at play.
The Science Courses.
In the first year of the science course the study is physiography or a study of
the present condition of the surface of the earth and its relation to the forces of
air and water upon it. Besides four recitations from the text book each week
there is a. manual course that supplements the work. An analytical question course,
with which the students provide themselves, has been prepared by reputable
authors. This manual consists of lessons made up of questions to be answered
from topographic maps published by the United States Geological Survey. These
maps are provided by the school. Almost each week an exercise is prepared in
writing and given for criticism.
The second year work in science is in botany. The text book has been pre-
pared with a view to giving a brief study in the development of plants from simple
and inferior forms to higher and more complex forms. As far as it is possible to
collect material, the students are given specimens which illustrate parts of the
plant or types of plants. A book in which a record of these specimens is kept by
drawings is prepared by each student. Beginning about April first, a course in field
work is given. Specimens of native flowering plants are furnished to students in
the class room. These specimens are analyzed and afterwards classtied by means
of a key to the flowering plants. The students are required to press and mount in
an herbarium, a given number of the specimens studied. This phase of the work
is meant to give an acquaintance with common native plants and a knowledge of
the characteristics of the more important families of our local flora.
Physics is the course offered in the third year to those choosing science instead
of two language subjects. The course here consists of three recitations and two
laboratory periods each week thruout the year. The recitation work is a study of
mechanics, heat, magnetism and electricity. Experiments are given during the
recitation illustrating all important phenomena studied. Each week students are
required to conduct an experiment for the verification of a law or the derivation of
scientific quantity. Two students work from a page of written directions with a
single apparatus. After the work has been done sufficiently accurate, a record of
the same describing the theory and manipulations is prepared. The plan of the
work here is to give the students experience in working with apparatus with his
The fourth year of science offered is a course in descriptive chemistsy. The
work is planned to give the student an acquaintance with common elements
and compounds, with their relations to each other and their uses in the arts and
industries. Three recitations are conducted each week thruout the year. In the
recitation some demonstrations of chemical action are given. Nearly all of the ele-
ments and compounds are shown to the members of the class. Besides the recita-
tion work two or more class hours each week are given to performing experiments
in the chemistry laboratory. These experiments are performed from a manual
prepared so as to bring out properties and reactions of the chemicals. Each
member of the class is provided with a full set of apparatus and a place to perform
the experiments. Records of all the work done and an explanation of the results
is written in a note book.

Course In Mathematics.
Science is accumulated and established knowledge which has been systematized
and formulated with reference to the discovery of general truths or the operation
of general laws. Mathematics is a science subject in the hightest sense of the term.
It has, in point of form, the character of logical perfection: and, in point of matter,
the character of real truth.
The subject matter of mathematics is often divided into pure mathematics and
and applied mathematics. Pure mathematics is made to include, generally speak-
ing, arithemetic, algebra and geometry: applied mathematics, mechanics, physics
and astronomy. These classifications are, however, very imperfect and found at all
points to be constantly overlapping.
The mathematics deparment of the High School is made to consist of pure
mathematics, the applied phase being found in the science department proper.
The High School course is aimed to give a good foundation for mathematical work
and hence includes the elementary mathematical subjects. Eight credits are re-
quired of all candidates for graduationg three in algebra, four in geometry, and one
in either arithmetic or trigonometry. One credit is given for a satisfactory comple-
tion of one-half year's work.
Algebra is taught during the freshman year and the First half of the sophomore
year. The work begins where arithmetic closed and the earlier stages are largely
arithmetical in principle and work out the fundamental processes in general
number, including the solution of equations. This is followed by those things
necessary to the solution of linear, quadratic and higher equations. If time permits
additional matter is introduced. The text used in Stone-Millis' Essentials of
Geometry is taken during the second half of the sophomore year and continues
during the junior and First half of the senior year. It includes the subject as pre-
sented in Schultze and Sevenoak's Plane and Solid Geometry. A great deal of
emphasis is laid on the solution of original exercises.
The arithmetic presented during the last half of the senior year is meant to
serve two purposes: to give the student a good knowledge of the practical com-
mercial phase and to give those who anticipate teaching in the common schools a
good working basis of the subject.
Those students selecting trigonometry study the subject as given in Well's
Plane Trigonometry. Functions, formulae and equations are worked out. The
stress of the work is placed on the solution of triangles by both natural and loga-
The object of a school is to teach a pupil to live. It is believed that this course
presents its share to that object as well as establishes in the student's mind the
laws of logical process.

Be careful in mixing your acids though
For if you don't, you may give us a chance:

The History Course.
Among those subjects included in the curriculum, history has been given a
paramount position. Together with English and Mathematics it is the only subject
required of every student throughout the high school course, for next to the logical
training afforded by the higher mathematical branches, and the ability to express
ones thought with both clearness and elegance, history, alone of all other studies,
offers an opportunity for the training of the judgement.
The first year of high school history study embraces the history of ill the
ancient Oriental world ill, Greece and UID Rome.
ill This work includes but a brief survey of the greater Oriental nations. Stress
is laid upon the more apparent features of their material civilization and the in-
fluence of this upon the later life of Greece is made prominent.
ill, In the study of Greek history the student's attention is directed to the in-
fluence which geography has as a factor in the life of nations, to the genius and
individuality of the Greek people in the fields of, art, literature and thoughtg and
to the character of Greek government and the reasons for its failure.
fIIIl The history of Rome is made to present two important phases to the
studentg 1st, the Roman capacity for government and 2nd, Rome's position as a
distributor of Greek culture and as the basis upon which the great failure of
mediaeval life rested.
In the second year Mediaeval and Modern History is taken up. The signifi-
cance ofthe two great institutions of the study of church and Empire and their
relations. The great movements of the Renaissance and Reformation are studied
in their relation to the history of the subsequent centuries of the modern era.
The major portion of the second year's work is spent upon the history of modern
Europe, that the students may gain an idea of the position which his own country
occupies in the world of nations at the present time.
The third year is divided between English history and Civics. The work in his-
tory aims to recapitulate and supplement the main facts of English history acquired
during the second year. The growth of constitutional government and the Anglo
Saxon idea of freedom is emphasized, in order that the student, in his study of
American history, may have a clear idea of the source from which his own
The Civics course presents such facts of government, especially local govern-
ment as will enable the student to become an intelligent citizen with a definite
conception of all the word implies. ,
An advanced course in American history occupies the Senior year. An
attempt is here made to give the boy and girl about to leave high school, an in-
tensive view of American ideas and ideals, as shown by the history of his own
nation. American progress, America's relation to the world powers and American
activity are here emphasized.
Throughout the courses constant use of other books than the text-in-hand is
demanded. Students keep note books of text, class and supplementary work.
Maps illustrating all historical data are required, as are also outlines and chrono-

logical tables. In the third and fourth years regular debates are held, in which the
students are permitted to sustain their Views of given points by use of argument.
In this course we attempt to give less an accumulation of facts than to take those
facts already in hand and from them to develop in the student the power of dis-
crimination, observation, comparison, and deduction of logical judgement. These
coupled with such lessons of patriotism as he may learn from a record ofthe
exploits and achievements of his forefathers, will, we believe, make of him a
useful and intelligent American citizen.
The German Course.
The German course is one of those which form the quasi-elective part of the
curriculum. At the beginning of the third year the student is permitted to choose
two from a group of three subjects: Latin, German and Science, which latter in-
cludes Physics and Chemistry. This option affords the student of scientific trend,
opportunity to complete four full years of science, Physiography, Botany and the
two just mentioned. To those students possessing the language instinct, there is
given a chance to acquire considerable knowledge of the rudirnents of German.
The first year of the work is spent on gaining some knowledge of the essentials,
such as is offered by a beginner's book. At the earliest practicable moment the
reading of connected discourse is taken up and throughout the first year continues
to absorb the major portion of the students time, grammatical points being learned
from a study ofthe text, supplemented by regular grammatical and composition
During the second year's work the student is expected to read rapidly two or
three of the easier well known stories and one or two short plays. Composition
exercises based upon the texts read, are continued throughout the year and special
attention is given to rapid reading.
Although the work in German is limited and consequently calls for much of
the drudgery with few of the pleasures which come from the more continued study
of a language, still the students have taken up this course eagerly and make rapid

A Letter from Aeneas to Hector
tWritten at Crete, 1153 B. CJ
Aeneas to his beloved Hector sends greeting.
Sorely oppressed in spirit, yet trusting in divine power of the gods, I, Aeneas,
am writing this letter to you before I abandon the Cretan port and renew my
wanderings. Unspeakable are the woes, indiscribable are the sorrows that I have
experienced since the glow of life departed from your body and you entered the
spirit world. Far too painful it is, to recall how the ruthless Greeks entered our
beautiful city, and with fire and sword razed it to the ground. Our citadel has
fallen. Mighty Troy is no more.
When I beheld the cruel deeds of the enemy, I became frenzied in spirit and
knew not what to do, nor whither to go. Then my gentle mother came to me and
advised me what course to pursue. Moreover heaven sent omens and'thereby
revealed to me that I was to go forth into a long exile, and finally found a city.
Wherefore, under the auspices of the gods, in company with my family and a
few friends, I left my native city and began my wonderings. In our flight from
the burning citadel, my beloved Creusa was separated from me and I have never
been able to find her. But I trust that heaven will take care of her and release
her from all misery.
A short time after we went forth from Troy we began our journey over the
sea. Having passed thru many dangers, we finally came to Delos where we con-
sulted the Oracle. We were advised by Apollo to seek our ancient mother land.
Father Anchises believed that Crete was to be our destined home and therefore
we came to the island from which I am now writing to you.
But the Fates do not permit us to dwell in peace and safety. A pestilance
has fallen upon our bodies, and a blight upon our crops. Father Anchises has
bidden us to recoss the sea and consult the oracle again. Wherefore we shall
depart from this port immediately.
Great has been our suffering, weary are we of our wanclerings. We hope
that heaven will soon put an end to our woes, and bring us safely to our fated
city. We are trusting in the divine help of the gods and awaiting their summons
to join you. Farewell.

HEN I was a small boy, I had always hoped to be rich, and made up my

In later years I was working in New York. One day while strolling about, I
came to Castle Garden. Sitting there on a bench watching the ships come in, I
happened to remember the wish of my boyhood and that it was time for my ship
to arrive. As I sat smoking my pipe, I saw a large ship steaming into the harbor,
and sure enough, it was loaded with those precious stones from Africa.
This made me a very wealthy man, and I set out to satisfy the wants of a few
years back when I was a boy. I bought a large mansion on Fifth Avenue so that
I should be entitled to a place among the four hundred and to live with the elite
of New York. ' Tired of working for a small salary in an office, I bought an office
building on Wall Street and set up my business against Pierpont Morgan. After
being very successful in business and becoming tired of city life, I decided to take
a trip and see some of the world. I took a steamer for England and on reaching
there, Iwas received and royally entertained by the king and nobles. After a
long visit in England, I started for Germany, where I was going to purchase an
old castle on the Rhine and here spend the rest of my declining years in ease.
When I was about to set foot on dear old Fatherland, I felt a rap on my shoulder.
I looked up, and to my surprise, who should it be? A large man in blue
clothes was standing by me, and he politely requested me to move on. I looked
around to see where I was. I was still sitting on the bench, my pipe was out and
my ship had disappeared.

A Morning Walk.
INCE early morning walks for health have become quite a fad among society
ladies, a friend and myself decided to try them.
I lived in the suburbs of the city, and my friend, Janette resided about two
blocks from our home. We both agreed to arise at five o'c1ock and Janette was
then to come past for me. I set the alarm clock, and tho being very loath to get
up at the appointed time, isince I had been usually rising about two hours
later,l I arose and after dressing, telephoned to Janette.
We started out, and tho it was very cold, we assured each other that the air
was very "bracing" We had just got outside of the city, and were resting on a
small bridge, when we heard something running towards us. Becoming frightened,
we began to run, but it kept gaining and when it came up with us, which it soon
did, we found it was only my dog Flo, who had followed us. 1
We started out again and had gone only a short distance when we saw a huge
dark object just over on the other side of the fence. "Oh! What is it?" exclaimed
Janette. "It has horns," and we began to run again, when a friendly "moo-o"
dispelled our fears.
Walking on a distance farther we suddenly heard a weird whistling, and a
sound like the flapping of wings. Just then, some distance ahead of us, a large
black figure loomed up.
Forgetting our walk and all else we ran as if for our lives. I assure you that
we let no grass grow under our feet.
In the mean time, this figure picking up something from the ground, had
followed after us. For some reason, it stopped on the bridge, but we ran on and
did not stop until we reached our friendly doors.
Soon after we had reached home, a girl who lived near, called and returned my
hat, which fl forgot to say, had fallen off at the beginning of our flight.
She said she had been milking the cows in the pasture near by and was just
starting home, when she saw us running, had picked up my hat and run after us to
return it, not knowing what had caused our flight.
But how can you explain the sound like flapping of wing and the weird whist-
ling? I said, not willing to show myself such a coward.
"That flapping of wings," she replied, "was caused by the limbs of the tree,
which had been part way torn off by the wind, and the whistling was the wind

NE day, not long ago, in a college town, a young man stood on a street corner,
undecided which way to go. But presently he saw a girl with a well known
blue hat on turn down a side street toward the college. So he ran madly down
the street after her and soon overtook her.
"Say, Mary, can't I carry your books?" he asked.
"No," responded a young lady whom he had never seen before, as she turned
and looked him in the eye, "You may NOT."
And the young man gasped and turned away.
Then, far down the street, he saw a young lady in a long oilskin coat beside
which he had trudged to school many a morning. "That's Mary," he said to him-
self, and sped after her.
Soon he caught up with her, and again he plead, "Say, Mary, can't I carry your
books?" And this damsel turned a horrified face toward him and declined to
answer. For she was another unknown.
Then he turned away disgusted and sauntered back to town. Soon he saw
Miss Jones, the ugliest girl in the college, coming toward him in her long red coat,
of a shade peculiarly unsuited to her complexion.
"Honestly, if I had a face like her's, I'd drown myself," he remarked to a
And Miss Jones overheard and looked at him with her eyes full of tears.-
Ye gods, it was Mary!
And the young man, realizing that explanation would soon be called for, went
home to bed. For they were all sorority sisters who wore each other's clothes.

K is for the Knockers of T. H. S.

And if you are one of these
Quit you're knocking if you please.
The dear little freshmen,
Are very nice indeed,
Altho they are quite timid,
And can scarcely even read.
They like to make funny noises,
And then laugh in glee,
But when they are corrected,
This is changed to a different key.
They love to draw pretty pictures,
And shoot their paper wads,
But O! how innocent they look
When espied by Mr. Dodds!
They laugh and have their fun until
They find that they have flunked,
But then the trouble comes at once,
For they see that they have sunk.
But when the term exams come around,
And they've studied mighty hard,
Just see the tears flow dow their cheeks
When they look upon their card.
But when they see their sad mistake
After many days gone by,
They then each look back and say,
"O what a fool was I!"

Senior Soliloquy. n
lWith apologies to Shakesperml
To Hunk or not to tlunk, that is the question,
Whether 'tis nobler in school to suffer
The sorrow and disgrace of term exams
Or to take in your arms, a pile of books
And by studying learn them? To cram, to learn,
Alas, and by a knowing to say we end
The callings and the thousand reproving words
That Hunkers are heir to, 'tis a state of affairs
Devoutly to be wished. To cram, to Hunk,
To cheat, perchance to Hunk again, ay, there's the rub.

All the translations we soon will forget.
But they say for mind training its value is great,
So therefore we study it early and late.
Trials of a Freshman.
ALK about the first degree at Yale, Westpoint, or Cornell, but it's nothing in
comparison with the trials of a Freshman in the Tipton High School.
The first terror we must bravely confront is the acquaintance of the teachers
lwho of course we Freshmen imagine know more than any college professor.,
This, as every student has experienced, is a particularly difficult task.
Well, the next thing is to locate the various class rooms. This is not always a
pleasant occupation as the Seniors and Juniors, ever on the alert, are watching
with an eagle eye every step we take, and are ready to put down on the joke page
of the annual in a very exaggerated manner, every detail of our innocent blunders.
This year, I presume, that they will have the pleasure of heading their wonderful
joke column with a line something like this,-"Lost in the hall,-Freshmen Wand-
erers Led by Billy Deakyne and Clatie O'Banion." "But sh! ! ! perhaps the dear
little Senior boys were too busy shooting paper wads and the girls studying
their German lesson to notice it.
She next "game" we play is our Latin recitation. Miss Towne reads the first
chapter of Caesar to us and we are able to understand and translate about as
much of it as we would be able to understand a conversation among the three
Chinamen at Sing Lee's laundry. We gradually become acquainted and, in the
mean time, get all the initiation we care about, 'but when we find that when we are
tired and weary of everything else, the best place to go to have our spirits aroused
is room number eleven.
In conclusion, I must say that the result of all this is, that we Freshies are in
a continual nervous strain from the time we receive our eight grade diplomas
until we are safely seated in the rows occupied by the "enlightened" Sophomores.
KNO wonder our mammas always let us play with our dolls and tin soldiers during
vacation., We have just one comforting thought uppermost in our minds, and it
is this-we'll all be Sophomores next year. lMabe!l

M is for the mercy the teachers don't show
When the answer too often, "zero."
They say we must study, not half so much sport
Or they'll have to cut on our class report.
Biography of A Chicken.
I-IEN I began my life, I thought the world must be very small, judging from
what I could see of it in my tiny little prison. Isoon grew dissatisfied
with my surroundings and began to scratch and peck at the walls of my little
home. Presently I had a small opening in one side, which grew larger at every
peck. I worked diligently at my task until I had an opening large enough to get
my head out, when, quite unexpectedly, the house fell apart and I found myself in
the midst of a company of other little brothers and sisters exactly like myself, all
nestled under mother's warm feathers.
After a time I decided to View my surroundings, so I peeped out from under
mother's wing. Everything looked so large and scarey that I became frightened
and longed to be back in my little home again. But alas! it was destroyed forever
and I had to learn to endure the trials my race is subject to.
I was cared for by my mother and spent some of the happiest days of my
youth under her protection. Many a time I slept under her sung wings or rode
on her soft feathery back, and in fact, enjoyed all the pleasures of a baby chick.
When I was about nine weeks of age, Iwas left to iight my own way thru
life, as mother thought she had given me enough training to encourage me to grow
up and be a useful little hen as she has been. DoRA DOVERSBERGER, '13.
Suppose your lessons, Freshie, dear,
Are difficult to get,
Let me tell you, listen here,
'Twill do no good to fret.
Keep working and a-trying,
Till at last you've got them all,
Then you can always answer "Six,"
For every day's roll call.
Suppose the school don't please you,
Nor the way some teachers do,
Do you think the whole faculty
Will be altered just for you?
And isn't it, my Freshmen friends,
The wisest, bravest plan,
Whatever comes, or doesn't come,
To do the best you can?

HE day was extremely cold. The biting air, however, seemed to make James
Brown all the more energetic, as he hastily packed his trunk. He was going
away. Yes, owing to the scarcity of work in the village of B- he had decided
to seek work elsewhere. He was going to start at seven fifteen and it was now
five minutes until seven.
At ten minutes past seven, James stood on the platform of the crowded depot.
Beside him stood his aged mother and care-worn father. At exactly seven
fifteen, the monstrous engine came puffing in and stopped. The numerous passen-
gers hastily scampered to their seats and as James kissed his parents good-bye, he
turned his head to hide the almost incontrollable tear which insisted on showing
itself. After giving his head an impatient toss he said, "Good-bye," and hurried on
with the remainder of the passengers to try to secure a seat.
His mother and father were turning away, feeling that they might never see
their son again, when they heard James' voice calling, "Mother", They turned
quickly and saw James raise the window and throw to them a bit of paper. His
mother eagerly grasped it as it fluttered within her reach. She read its con-
tents,-then smiled. This is what it said: "Mother, don't forget to send me the
'Tiptonian' for 1910."

O is for the order the teachers demand,
And if you don't keep it with pencil in hand,
They set down your name and the next thing you know
Your place will be changed to the front of the row.
Backward, turn backward, O Time, on your way,
Make me a school boy just for today!
Instructors, return from the glorious past
And permit me to sit in that dear old class.
Make me to glance in my books, as of old,
Searching for knowledge that yet is untold.
Over my studies your eagle eye keep,
While I am cramming in knowledge so deep.
Backward, flow backward, O tide of the years,
Back to the high school with joys and with fears
Work without recompense, toil without gaing
To hear the mild voice of a teacher proclaim,
"Your heads are quite empty, 'tis true, I declare,
Were I to expel you, 'twould only be fair."
Then with renewed vigor our task we resumed,
While over our studies we fretted and fumed.
Tired of the world, the base, the untrue,
My dear T. H. S., my heart longs for you!
Fill me with history and Latin galore,
Fill me with that fullness I've oft felt before.
The sight of your halls which reechoed my voice,
Would, as in olden days make me rejoice.
So then take me back again, just for today,
My lesson and exercise once more to say.
All thru the years of silence so long,
The tests and "exams" still cling like a song.
The lectures received and the credits denied
Still fill me with terror I never can hide:
Though all of these facts serve to fill me with strife
To back in the high school, I'd give half my life.
High school, dear high school, with your joys and your pain
How gladly I'd welcome your presence again.
P is for the Pattern the Seniors have given,
Which can not be beat on this side of fair heaven
They're perfectly peaceful, They're brainy, they're right

The Soliloquoy of o School Nlouse.
Y! that was an awful dream! I am glad I woke up, I must have been asleep
for hours, and I am as hungry as any mouse ever was. I guess I will try
to I-ind something to eat in that school room. Those boys and girls sitting over
there in rows think they can scare me by making those funny noises, but I guess
not, and I shall keep right on. Wonder what this girl over here by me is doing on
top of the desk? That lady teacher who has been at the black board must be
alarmed by the way she is going back there to those boys. She seems to be tell-
ing them something, but I cannot hear it. She must have excited them, for they
have got up and are coming this way, but they can't scare me. Oh! I wish I had
started back a little sooner, for those boys are between me and that old knot hole,
but I know where another one is ovei' on the other side of the room, and I shall
just run over there. Gracious! I must be great by the way those girls get out of
my way, but I wish they would not make so much noise in doing so. Here is that
lady who was at the blackboardg I shall just run up and punish her for sending
those boys after me. My! how she can run! I shall not follow her but try to get
into that hole that boy is watching with a fire shovel. Now he is raising it over
his head and letting it fall, so I shall have to hurry or it will light on me.

D Scraps from Pinkie's Ledger.
FTER eight long and now pitiable years, the present Freshman class has
passed the toils and privations of common school life and arrived at the
threshold of a new and mysterious four years of supposed bliss and enjoyment.
In the ecstacy of the moment, I resolve to keep a ledger of my doings in the land
of Physics and Algebra, and hand it down as a mighty inducement to the younger
September 3rd is spent in feverish preparation. With quaking heart I get
down "Tom Brown at Oxford" and read it thru in the vain hope of finding out
how to conduct myself in a fitting manner, and I am also overwhelmed with
buckets of advice by all too willing Sops. Finplly, however, I become suspicious of
this sort of advice and way down in my heart, I resolve to follow in the wake of
Stanley Springer and Clatie O'Banion so that I may be sure not to stray from the
straight and narrow way.
September 4th, 5:10 a. rn. I am ready for school and look in perplexity at
my framed diploma. How am I to carry it, and what would they do with sixty-
seven framed diplomas. After a little figuring on what sized room it would take
to hold sixty-seven such pieces of framed bric-a-brac, I gave it up as a bad job and
resolve to take only my report card. Then follows an hour of vain and feverish
search until I suddenly remember having used it in kindling a fire soon after
reading it. '
With a mad determination to obtain a written recommendation from Mr.
VanBuskirk, if necessary, I rush to the school building where I find several others
with my same ailment, patiently waiting for the doors to open.
After la period of awe upon entering, it is explained to me that the writing on
the board is not Greek, but the program, and that Mr. Dodds' middle name is
Gail, not Gabriel. I choose a fine seat in the back of the room in sight of the
town clock and within easy whispering distance of fourteen boys. I occupy this
seat about sixteen minutes when I am informed that I am on the sophomore side
of the room, and, after another minute of suspense, I am removed to the front of
the room with Preacher Loucks on my left and and a few pious Sophs on my
September 5-6-7. I listen to the tales of woe which have overcome undutiful
freshmen, as told by the Sophs. I hear of hazing and hair cutting until I go around
a block to keep from crossing the path of a fire-eating sophomore.
September 10th. While engaged in innocent sport, a band of four terrible
sophs slip up and bind Raymond Little and me, and barely miss Master Harry
Albertshardt, who unceremoniously seeks the protection of his parental roof from
whence he looks upon the scene from afar. Here upon we are quietly informed
that we will have just one hundred and seventy six more stunts to perform than
if he were with us. A rope is produced and we are bound and gagged in the
most approved fashion.
Encouraged by frequent jabs, we make our way out to a lonely section of the
R is for Rules, supposed to be kept
But in dodging them all, each class is adept
And also for Reasons, in each fertile brain
For forgetting these Rules, without censure or blame.
"Piano Addition." On the road, we are entertained by various hair-raising stories
and vague hints of impending disaster. After the usual mudpuddle stepping
exercise and a dust bath, and after sacred vows to worship "The Most High and
Puissient Sophomores" to the best of our ability we are released, and the chances
are we shall not venture out after dark for a while.
Nov. 2nd. Class spirit begins to leak out. The sophomores, thru a series of
brilliant maneuvers around our watchful janitors, place their class colors on
the top of the building. We perceive their daring with awe and, after
a council of war, send one of our number to ask permission of
the faculty to place ours in their stead. Of course the answer
and up the present time there has been quite a few also
a very strange scarcity of colors to decorate and
Hershal Francis made Eugene Pyke take
to his mortification and to the
Seniors and rest of school.
How Ralph Gets His Lessons.
We know how Ralph Kemp gets his Latin Lessons. Ralph teaches a Sunday
School class and this is the lesson he tried to teach one Sunday:
1. Though I speak with the tongues of Profs and Seniors and have not a Pony,
I am become as sounding brass and tinkling cymbal.
2. And.though I have the gift of translating and understanding all constructions
and all references, and though I have numerous notes so that I could translate even
GOETHE'S FAUST or ORB1s PICTUS, and have not a Pony I am nothing.
3. And though I return my books to the rental library, and though I sell my
second hand books at half price, it profiteth me nothing.
4. A Pony lasteth long and weareth not outg a Pony hath no conscience, is not
5. Does not behave itself unseeminglyg seeketh not to be known, is not easily
discovered: produceth no evil.
6. Rejoiceth not in lucky STALL, but is gladdened by a good translation.
7. Translateth all things, explaineth all things, teacheth all things, beareth all
8. A Pony never faileth, but whether there be translations they shall be for-
gottenq whether there be notes, they shall fadeg whether there be knowledge it
shall vanish away.
9. For we know in the past and we translate in the past.
10. But when a Pony is at hand that which is guess work shall be done away with.
11. When I was a freshman I spoke as a freshman, I understood as a freshman, I thought
as a freshman, but when I became a Senior I put away childish things.
12. For THEN I translated without a Pony poorly, but now I have an Excellent
Horse. Then I knew in part but now I know even as my Pony knoweth.
13. And now abideth knowledge, guess work, and a Pony, these three, but the
greatest of these is the Pony.

The Juniors at the Photographers.
T one o'clock on Friday, Nov. 5, 1909, the Junior Class of the Tipton High
School assembled at the photograph gallery to have their pictures taken
for the Tiptonian. Neither the Seniors nor the Faculty wished to make the class
vain, but they seemed very anxious to have this picture to beautify the Annual.
Above the noise which the class was making could be heard the moans and
groans of the camera as it thought of the painful ordeal that awaited it. At last
the photographer informed them that all was ready. The girls plunged for the
mirror, which was now nearly broken, for it had been in constant use. Then all
went into the room where the camera was quaking with fear, notwithstanding its
vain efforts to be brave.
One member of the class imagined that spectacles would be a great improve-
ment to his looks, and he could hardly be forced to remove the borrowed prop-
erty. After all had been arranged, so as to help the looks of their neighbors, as
each secretly thought. and after they had been still about five minutes, the longest
the class has been known to be quiet, the photographer informed them that all
They all jumped, each telling how he had looked, and several took an extra
glance at the glass. The camera was heard to exclaim in its surprise, "Why, they
are not so bad as I had expected. Just a bunch of jolly, fine looking boys and
girls, it must have been the Sophomore Class that I was dreading."

Epitaphs---Grave and Gay.
"De mortuis nil nisi bonum", is a maxim by no means universally followed by
framers of sepulchral inscriptions, and many a barbed arrow has been shot in this
way at the reputation of the departed.
Admiration, Hattery, toleration, vanity, envy, hatred, malevolence, spite and
general eccentricity may be found side by side in almost any church yard.
It is said on the stone of an auctioneer buried at Greenwood appear the words
Going, Going, Gone!
Very quaint and eccentric is the following:-
Here lie the bones of Martha Gwynn,
Who was so very pure within,
She broke the outer shell of sin,
And thence was hatched a Cherubim.
That tomb stones have been used for the purposes of commercial advertise-
ments is well-known: witness the following:-
Beneath this stone in hopes of Zion
Is laid the landlord of the Lion.
Resigned unto the heavenly will,
His son keeps on the business still.
This seasonable epitaph was found on the tomb stone of an infant who died
aetatis four months:-
Honor thy father and thy mother, that thy days may be long in the land
of thy youth.
The exigencies of rhyme were responsible for this:-
Here lies John Bunn,
Who was killed by a gun,
His name wasn't Bunn, but his real name was Wood,
But Wood wouldn't rhyme with gun, so I thought Bunn would.
Grammar is thrown to the winds in:-
She's gone and cannot come to we,
But we shall shortly go to she.
The following, on the Earl of Kildare, is from the pen of Swift:-
Who killed Kildare, who dared Kildare to kill?
Death killed Kildare, who dare kill who he will.

And never flunk in a test, sir.

What Makes a Lady?
What makes a lady, do you say?
Is it frills and ribbons gay,
Soft, white hands and beautiful face,
With silks and satins her form to graceg
Is that what makes a lady?
Or is it the station in life they hold,
Amply supplied with jewels and gold,
Accomplished in music and the arts,
With polished manners and selfish hearts,
That makes them ladies?
With haughty and overbearing airs,
Caring only for social affairs,
Demanding attention from every source,
But giving none to others, of course.
Do you call that a lady?
Or is it the one with pleasant face,
Kind hearted and generous with simple grace,
With hands that for others are willing to work,
Never attempting her duty to shirkg
That you would call a lady?
Refined in her tastes though poor she may be,
Sweet tempered and gentle with kind sympathy:
Striving to merit a life on high,
Doing by others as she'd be done by.
That is what I call a lady.

Senior Class Poem.
The days we've spent in High School,
How quickly they have passed!
We scarcely now can realize
That these days are the last.
It seems that but few months have fled,
Since we were Freshmen shy,
Zealously working that we might be
Sophomores, by and by.
As Sophomores we still strove on.
For Juniors we would be.
We always aim to place our goal
Ahead of us, you see.
When we at last were Juniors,
O happy students then,
For we saw a great year ahead of us
The spring of nineteen ten.
Now that the longed for spring is here,
We anxiously await
The coming of the glorious night
When we shall graduate.
Then out into the busy world
We, each of us, must go,
And what our fortunes there may be,
'Tis not for us to know.
But whether failure or success
Attends our future ways,
'Twill ever be with pleasure
We'l1 recall these happy days.
Y is for the Year Book of our school
Which is very nice as a rule,
And we hope you will not feel otherwise when,
You reach this Annual of nineteen ten.
The Purple and The Gold.
lTune---"Columbia The Gem of The Ocean."l
We know of a class in Indiana,
That loves Royal Purple and Gold,
With hearts that are true and as loyal,
As hero in story of old.
They sing in the hours of their leisure,
They work in the hours they should work,
And find all the sweeter their pleasure.
For the duties they never will shirk.
Three cheers for the Purple and the Gold
Three cheers for the Purple and the Gold,
For our colors yell now and forever,
Three cheers for the Purple and the Gold.
Long may thy Gold be a beacon
To light up the pathway of lifeg
May thy Purple e'er be the true Royal
Which shall keep us too noble for strife.
As they mingle and Float in the sunshine,
May the God who looks down from above,
Fill the hearts of thy members with goodness,
Guide their steps with his infinite love.
And here's to the Tipton High School,
And here's to the dear Prussian Blueg
Not half of thy truth and thy goodness,
Has been told to thy children true.
Thou art worthy to grace, song, and story,
Thou art worthy a place in each heart.
We will share in thy strength and thy glory,
In thy trials we'll each bear a part.
Three cheers for the Prussian Blue,
Three cheers for the Prussian Blue,
For our High School yell now and forever,
Three cheers for the dear Prussian Blue.

The Seniors in the Land of Adventure.
HE party of adventurers having just returned from the encounters of the
Junior year, were now entering upon the dignified duties of a Senior, which
comprised a number of expeditions into the unknown, where were many monsters.
These must, of course, be overcome. '
The Knights and Ladies started out in the autumn when the sunshiny days of
September were still holding sway. They were in high spirits and considered the
novel journey, in which Knights and Ladies were to take equal risks, great sport.
Everything went smoothly for a long time and they began to pine for adventure,
when they suddenly saw the mouth of a very dark cave which loomed up before
them. They were upon it and had almost entered before they realized that it
Of course they were very much frightened, but since they had been told to
investigate everything which was extraordinary, they rode slowly into the dark
cavern. Far in the distance, they could not tell how far, a tiny light was burning.
It was the only brilliant thing in the black night of the cave. They rode toward
this for many days and nights, but at each turn of the peculiar, winding path they
seemed to become more entangled and less apt to get out. Sometimes they could
see, by means of torches which were lighted occasionally, that they were in a sort
of a square room which looked very much like a cube. Sometimes they seemed to
be riding around in a circle, at other times the rooms took on the shape of triangles,
but they always managed to get out of these places and into the next: though they
knew not how.
At last they came upon the light suddenly and every thing was clear and bright.
But, sadly to say, the light was in a room which was made entirely of glass, and
before they could get to it they must discover the way of entrance. After a long
search they found a small door, but as soon as it was opened a terrible creature
sprang at them and barred the only way of admittance. They could not tell exactly
what it looked like, but it seemed to have a triangle for a head with large spheres
of fire for eyes, a spherical triangle for a nose, an ellipse for a mouth, and a many
sided body, which was very long indeed, terminated by a tail, which was much
longer than the body, and which ended in a sort of tassel that resembled a
rhombus. It switched this peculiar tail incessently and bellowed very loudly.
The frightened adventurers wondered what sort of monster this could be, but
as it turned sideways they saw written upon one of the many sides of its body,
the name Geometrolius. They looked at each other in consternation. This was
the monster which made people work out many strange figures and from which
very few escaped.
Geometrolius walked into the glass room and they followed wondering at
at their easy entrance after the opposition at first. They all set to work im-
mediately at the strange figures and, after much labor, all were successful. Some
of the Ladies had more trouble than others, but these also succeeded in the end.
This was accomplished after many days and the party was glad, indeed, to walk
out of the mysterious cave into daylight.
They went on their way once more and soon came to a dense wood which
seemed to have no path of exit. They rode for a long time and after failing many
times to discovered a path which would carry them out safely, they came to the
conclusion that they were lost in the famous forest of Latinia. Truly there ad-
ventures had begun in earnest. They had no idea of what they would have to
do, but they were not left long in doubt, for suddenly agiant rose up from the
ground. He was very large, being about thirty or forty feet tall, and his should-
ers were so broad that he looked as tho he might supporta large building on
them with the greatest of ease. He was laughing silently, but when our heroes
and heroines looked about for some way of escape, he gave vent to such a roar of
laughter that it shook all the earth around, after which he informed them that
they must read for him four books ofa certain history which was written in a
language never before seen by them. -
Again all set to work, and after a long struggle of many days they began to
wish earnestly and devoutly for a PoNY which would carry them away on the wings
of the wind. But this help came to none of them.
They did not know how long they had labored when a light suddenly dawned
upon them and they were able to read the strange language. As before one or
two were not so successful as the rest, but these managed to get thru after a time.
When the task was finished a path suddenly appeared in the forest and they went
on once more.
Their ride was peaceful and uneventful for a long time, but they soon came to
what looked to be a large shop or factory of some sort. They were compelled to
ride into this place for it stood directly in their path. As soon as they had en-
tered the great iron door closed with a clang behind them and they began to feel
In here all was confusion. It the distance they could hear strange noises
which sounded like explosions. Steam engines could be heard, motors were
whirring and buzzing, and suddingly a cloud of blue smoke came floating toward
them which made them choke and sneeze as they breathed the stiflling air.
When they had gone a great distance into the building, a queer looking object
loomed up before them. Its body resembled a steam engine, its head a large body
with an almost spherical base, and its bulging eyes were small incandescents which
constantly changed their color. It seemed to be propelled by wheels, but still
they could not be sure.
The fate of people who came into the clutches of this strange creature was
well known over all the land. The victem must either compose some sort of com-
pound, or invent a machine. The adventurers knew this very well, but they wished
to see what others were doing before they began, what they supposed to be, a
fatal taskg for woe be unto the one who was not successful. He was compelled to
remain in this place all the remainder of his life.
As they went thru they saw all classes and descriptions of people. Some
were trying zealously to invent a perpetual motion machine, and they sighed
hopelessly as they wished they had never begun the task. Others were trying to
make a new compound by putting several chemicals together, and this invariably
resulted in an explosion.
The adventurers were hopeless indeed after having seen these things, but
they set to work, having no choice but to do so: and after much labor one and all
were again successful. Some, it is true, had great trouble. It was almost im-
possible for them to keep their minds clear, on the different phases of the work
long enough to accomplish anything, but they finally did so. Then one and all
started once more on their travels.
They were much encouraged now even though the sky was not half so bright
as at the beginning of their journey, and they felt that surely there could not be
many more dangers for them and that the remaining ones must be much easier.
They were doomed to disappointment, however, for they soon came to a frown-
ing, gray castle the gates of which opened like a book for them to enter.
They rode over 'the drawbridge and inside of the castle wall running toward
them was a very large man with a head which resembled that of Shakespear. He
conducted them into the castle, after which he begged them to be seated and talk
for a while. After a long conversation the weary travelers found that this Moody
person, who begged them to Lovett, knew all about their shortcommings,-how
they had slighted his very famous book know as "The History of English Litera-
ture," how they had declared that they knew what was in it without having studied
it at all, and how they had groaned and begged for mercy whenever they found
that some part of it must be read. Now, in order to punish them for all this, he
intended to make them study this book until they were thoroughly acquainted
with all of the writers, and their works, which were discussed in the book.
A terrible groan went thru the crowd at this. Of course they knew that it
could be done, and that it was not a hopeless task, but to have to do the very thing
that they had been trying to avoid all of this time and to have to do it even more
thoroughly than had been required of them heretofore, was simply unbearable.
However they knew it must be done, so they set to work at it and even when
they had to listen to a recital of their shortcommings, which was kindly given
them ever once in a while, they managed to do the work with rather good grace.
The task was finished at last, as all tasks are after a time, and though some used
the entire length of time alloted them and others were to be counted successful
upon the fulfilment of various conditions, they were all practically successful in
After they had left the castle far behind they came to two surging rocks.
Upon one the name Germanicus was carved, upon the other Historia. The road
went directly between these so that it was impossible to avoid passing between
them. After they had passed by two of the three parts of Germanicus, namely:
"Immensee", and "L'Arabliata", several of the followers dropped out on account
of other conflicts and fear. But the majority went on and were successful in
passing the last part, "Schweigersohn", in safety.
Next they passed the parts of Historia with very little trouble and their
journey was at an end. Now the sun was shining brightly, the birds singing, and
the flowers blooming when they reached their native land once more, which they
did with very little more trouble. They were very happy to be in their own
castle again and enjoyed the great banquet which was given in their honor very
much indeed. They all vowed that this should be their last long journey in
search of adventure for a long time to come.
For some of them it was the last journey. For others it was the last for a
long time, but for a few the journeys seemed to go on and on and they were
always searching for adventure.

MISS GRACE TRIMBLE, June 16, 1922.
Supt. of Public Instruction,
Manila, Philippine Islands.
MY DEAR GRACE:
A few days ago I received your letter asking me if I knew anything of
the graduates of 1910. Yes, I think I can give you the desired information asI
have heard from each of them occasionally ever since I have been here, and it is
with great pleasure that I do so, for from what I hear all of them seem to be
making a grand success of life, indeed there are so many good things to tell you of
them that I hardly know where to begin.
In the first place, Herschel Francis is the owner and head manager of a
neighboring ranch and whenever I see him, which is quite often, I think of how he
looked at the party twelve years ago. Oh my, how I wish we could all be together
once more as we were that night.
And, Samuel Don Groves, you will be surprised to hear that he is practicing
medicine here and is, of course, my family physician.
Florence Illges paid me a visit a. few months ago and knowing that she had
been studying palmistry as an avocation I requested her to read my palm. I will
not take time to tell all the nice things she foretold of me but I feel certain that if
her present good fortune should ever fail her she could easily make a living by
Bethel Templeton has become a famous magician. I attended an entertain-
ment which he gave in Mexico City a few weeks ago and it surpassed anything I
have ever seen in that line. I have seen Durno, but he out-Durnoed Durno.
I am expecting to see Bertha in the near future. She taught for several
years, but is now married and has promised to make me a visit while on her
When we sent to New York for a hrst-class decorator for our new house, to
my surprise who should come but my old friend Dudley Wagstalf. And lately, I
saw an advertisement for D. Wagstaffdc Company, Decorators and Furnishers,
New York City, U. S. A. Dudley has developed into a business man after all.
Besides these several of the girls have written to me from time to time, and
from the tone of their letters they all seem to be enjoying themselves. Only this
morning I received a beautiful letter from Mary Smith in which she spoke en-
thusiastically of her success as a missionary in Central Africa. She is happy in
her chosen work and altho she gets very homesick she has no thought of giving up.
Blanche Holman has been studying music in Germany for the last four years
and in her last letter she said she was planning a concert tour of Europe.
Camille Liggett has been at Leipsic studying for grand opera and she made
her debut in the Teatro della Scala, at Milan, as Nedda in "II Pagliaccif'
Among the other letters which I have received from my old pupils wtf. one
from Sylvia. She told me that after a few more years in school she had mo ed to
Texas, but at the time of her writing was preparing to return to good old Indiana.
One of the nicest presents which I received for my last birthday was a beauti-
ful little picture which Charlotte Wells who is studying art in Italy sent me. She
has won considerable fame as a painter and I prize it very greatly.
I suppose you have been reading Clara Doversberger's books. She is winning
great renown as an authoress. I have just finished "The Conqueror," and expect
to begin reading the "White Rose" immediately. I certainly enjoy her works and
shall endeavor to get a complete set of them for my library.
The last time I saw Herschel he told me that Paul Smith having visited all the
points of interest in the Americas was going to spend a week with him before
going to the Old World. I hope I shall get to see him while he is here.
Oh! I must not forget to tell you that I received a catalogue the other day
from Louis Hurley's great wholesale house in Montreal. I suppose Louis has
transfered his allegiance to the King and is now one of his most loyal subjects.
Gf course, Edna Repp was married soon after the close of her high school
career. She is now the happy and contented mistress of a mansion in Los Angeles,
California. I hear from her quite often and am going to visit her soon.
And you sy that Hazel Cochran is a teacher in the Cincinnati Conservatory
of Music? Well, I suppose that just suits her. I am indeed glad to hear of her
And Florence Frisz has been teaching for several years in St. Mary's Institute,
Terre Haute. I wonder if she ever thinks of the part she took in our Christmas
entertainment when I was teaching in Tipton. Oh what a time we had, I can just
shut my eyes now and see you all. But I must go on with my letter.
To my delightl have noticed that the names of several of the boyswho
graduated in 1910 have received very favorable mention in the newspapers and
and magazines. My! but I am proud of every one of you.
I see that George Woods, who is now a professor of agriculture at Purdue Univer-
sity, is likely to be chosen as the next Secretary of Agriculture in Uncle Sam's cabinet.
Ersie Martin married a prominent Epworth League worker and is now the pastor
of the Washington Square M. E. church New York City where he is very happy.
In reading an article on scientific advancement a few days ago, I learned that
Dane Patterson is now a great scientist and that his latest text book in chemistry is
acknowledged as the best treatise ever written on the subject. The article closed with
an elaborate expression of appreciation of Mr. Patterson's work.
Ralph Kemp after a year or two of civil engineering followed in the foot steps
of his father and is now a prominent lawyer in New York. I expect to hear soon
that he is in congress.
Ralph Kirtley is now on his way to the South Pole. His ship stopped at
Manzanillo about a month ago for supplies. While in port he called me up and
we had quite a conversation over the telephone. He seemed confident of success.
Samuel Groves tells me that he heard of Floyd Webb some time ago that he had
won a gold medal for the best bushel of corn at the Plymouth Worldfs Fair in 1920.
Floyd is one of the most prosperous young farmers in Tipton county and in the
developing of new varieties of agricultural products is a rival of Burbank.
But the biggest surprise of all was to hear that James Hogan and Paul Van
Buskirk, following in the foot steps of Emerson, are conducting a finishing school
for young ladies, on Cicero-near-Tipton. Their venture was a grand success from
the first as young ladies came from far and near to receive their instructions.
I believe now that I have told you about all of them and had better close or
you may have to pay excess freight on this letter. I am having "the time of my
young life" and have many more things to tell you, but will defer that until a later
Wishing you great success with your chosen work,
I remain as ever,

Junior Class History.
E, the present Junior Class set forth on our long journey of four years in
the old High School building on West Jefferson street. As Freshmen we
were not out of the ordinary and considered just an average class. We had many
troubles as most Freshmen do. The greatest one was keeping a. President. Three
were elected before we succeeded in keeping one. At the end of the Freshmen
year we thought ourselves very learned in High School ways and that most of our
High School troubles were over, but we have since discovered that they had only
Our Sophomore Year, we were this year in the new High School building, is
the most memorable one we have yet known. We were told by all the teachers
that we were the best class they had ever met during their High School teaching
because we were so very studious and had an inclination to absorb all that was
handed us. We closed the year thinking that by the time we had finished High
School we would all be able to go out into the would and win fame, each in his
When we returned for our Junior Year it was with the same spirit we ended
our Sophomore Year, but we soon discovered that we were not held in the same
place in the minds of the teachers. The cause we could not discover though we
tried ever so hard. This dampened our surface ardor somewhat, but beneath this
we keep saying, "To the stars thru difficulties."

66 CHOOL" is just another name for the large factory where only people under
thirty years of age work. The products of this factory are many. Here
the worker can not work on the article which he is most suited to make, but he is
compelled to manufacture at least five articles. If he happens to come in late, he
is docked in that precious pay which so many of us need so badly, namely deport-
ment. Or if a little innocent amusement is started to relieve the monotony of
hard work the foreman comes with a terrible frown on his forehead and his finger
on his lips and the offenders hurry back to work, knowing only too well that they
have lost some more pay. Or one of the assistant foremen comes around with
pencil and paper and the names of all the offenders, and often those who are not,
are quickly jotted down. And I am sorry to say some persons do not have very
much of that precious pay left at the end of the month.
If in the making of parellelograms, boxes, pyramids, or the other numerous
things in the mathematical department of this large factory he should accidently
leave out an altitude or let his calculations go the wrong way he loses some of
the payment which he deserves in this department. Or if in the making of steam
engines or lifting pumps or hot air furnaces in the physics department, he should
leave a valve out, or put one in the wrong place, he likewise is given a like treat-
ment. Or in his translations from German or Latin, which would enlighten
the unappreciative old world, or in his desparate struggles to follow the heroes,
or in his wonderfull debates, I say, if in all these things he makes mistakes, he is
accorded some very hard treatment.
So he can work in all of these sweat shops until his head swims and then not
gain anything after all.

Junior Class Prophecy.
Dear me! only an hour in which to bid farewell to the great art gallery Louvre.
For to-morrow I shall be leaving gay Parie. How quickly these years of study have
passed. I shall surely never forget these walks I have taken almost daily up from
the Picturesque Champs Elysus from the majestic big arch down to the Place de la
Concorde where Marie Antoinette and Louis XVI and hosts of others were exe-
cuted. But I must not stop in this beautiful garden Tuilleries but hurry on into
I think I shall have to close my eyes or I shall spend too much time here. I
just must take a last look at Murillo's beautiful "Immaculate Conception." And now
for the room where the Corots are to be found. I believe I like this "'Dance of the
Nymphs" best perhaps because it brings back the memory of other evenings spent
in the old Martz Theater at home, where I have often seen acopy of this very
picture on the curtain. I can remember as well as-Why Jean Johns! Where in
the world did you drop from?-Of all the people I expected to see, the last I heard
of you you were teaching kindergarten in San Francisco. Oh, isn't it fine that you
got the chance to come with the San Francisco teachers! You will be thoroughly
repaid if you have as delightful a time as I have had. Come, let us go over to this
little alcove I have just hundreds of questions to ask you.
So two-thirds of the class of '11 were back at the reunion. I tell you it made
me mighty home-sick that night when I though what I was missing. Do I remember
that class prophecy I wrote when a Junior? Let's see, how did it begin? Oh yes,
I have often since laughed about how I pictured myself suffering with a dreadful
toothache and, submitting to laughing gas to have it removed, dreamed the future
of that wonderful class.
Well, first, what has become of John D? I have so often wondered if he really
did become a great military leader. Ihave always thought that he had enough
ambition to accomplish whatever he attempted. Didn't I have Florence a great
musician? And she was the first one married! And Gladys Bowlin after all these
years of hard study has realized her dream and is now a member of the Cincin-
nati Symphony Orchestra. She is going to meet me in New York and is going
home with me. Oh yes, I just received a letter from Floyd. He lives in Oregon
and owns a large ranch there. Didn't I have Helen Brown marry a professor?
And you say she married a very wealthy man and is living in Chicago in the midst
So Harold and Leonard were at the reunion and both have become history
professors. I have always thought that Harold would become a professor, but I
never did know what to think of Leonard. I am very glad to hear of their success.
What a joke that I had Ray Glenn a circus rider, and he really has settled down
and is now the president of the athletic association.
How surprised I am to hear that Ruth McConkey is at the head of the domestic
science department in the state university of Iowa. So Lydia did become a noted
English teacher as I said in my Junior class prophecy. And what has become of
Mabel Showers? Married! you say, and living in a beautiful country home a short
distance from Tipton. o
There is Paul Barr and Oren Foster, what did they make of themselves? Do you
mean to say that they are serving their second term in the Indiana Legislature? I
am very much surprised, but I am very glad to hear such good news.
Wasn't it funny that I had Harry Herron a jester in Buffalo Bill vaudeville in
in Boston, and you say he has become a famous doctor for all nervous diseases.
How glad I am to hear that Ray Kirtly is an eminent lawyer. -
You do not mean to say that Bob Smith has developed into a prize tighter!
Certainly that is the most astonishing piece of news I have heard for a long time.
I am so sorry to hear about Berl Graham. So he fell desperately in love with a
beautiful girl in California and as his love was not returned, he is living in a secluded
place and is writing to pass the time away. Surely the old saying is true:
"Of all sad words of tongue or pen
The saddest are these, it might of been."
What has become of Edith and Helen? I almost knew that my class prophecy
would hold true concerning them. So they entered into the gayeties of social life
and were soon married. I never thought when we were in school that Allan Innis
liked to study much, but I just heard the other day that he was a great oculist
practicing in New York. Maud Henry became a school teacher, of course? Why
you do not mean to say that she is married too! How strange that nearly all the
girls in our class have been tempted into matrimony.
Isn't it odd that Carl Richman did not become a Lutheran minister? I never
can imagine him as a judge: but as you saw him at the class reunion it must be
true. Why, I almost forgot to ask about Ruth Anderson. Did she not become an
opera singer? I thought so. Her friends and admirers say that they would go a
great distance to hear her sing one German song. Surely you can account for this,
for did she not belong to our Deutsche Gesangstunde?
How about Aloysius? How strange that he is a traveling man when I had him
a Latin professor. The very idea! to think that he is going to marry one of his old
maid customers. So Buell settled down and became a prosperous farmer. Who
would have thought that I was going to hear of all my classmates here. Was
Bertha Porter at the reunion? What is she doing? An elocutionist! You don't
say! And so she travels over the United States and startles her audiences with
her wonderful expressive voice.
Jean, I almost feel as if I had been at a class reunion myself. Five o'clock! and
I have just live minutes to catch the train back to my hotel. Suppose you go back
and spend the evening with me for I haven't half finished asking questions.

Sophomore Class History.
HE present Sophomore class had the distinction of being the first Freshman
class to enter the new high school buildingg this made them feel very import-
ant despite the fact that they were continually reminded, in very extravagant
terms, of course, how insignificant they were.
One of the most trying indignities which they were subject to, for being
F reshies, was the process of having their hair cut against their will, and in most
unbecoming styles, a task which the dignified Senior boys of nineteen nine took
upon themselves "free gratis." The amateur barbers soon found out however that
these Freshies had more "spunk" than such little lots are generally supposed to
have and were persuaded that it would be wise not to interfere with them in the
future. The remainder of their Freshman year was therefore comparatively
When this class first entered high school it had forty-two members and
although the number is now considerably decreased the Sophomores all show a
great interest in their work and if they overcome all difficulties as successfully as
they have those arising from Latin, History, Botany, English, and Algebra in this
this year's work, their future will indeed be a bright one.
It is the ambition of each of them to graduate in nineteen twelve with high
honors and to make a. success of life, and with this lofty purpose in their minds
they are pushing onward and upward, upward and onward.

Freshman Class History.
UR freshman class began its history Sept. 7, 1910, when about seventy eager
boys and girls entered the high school and became a part of the student
Two weeks of high school life convinced us ofthe necessity of organization
and also helped to determine our motto, "Ohne Dornen Keine Rosen" lNo roses
without thornsl. We left our first class meeting, very proud of the fact that we
had elected our full corps of officers and were now as completely organized as the
classes above us. Soon after this we had another class meeting in which our
president, probably overwhelmed with responsibility of caring for so many un-
curbed freshmen. tendered his resignation, but we soon found another president who
was willing to sacrifice his interests for the good of his class.
With few exceptions we have followed in the path of all freshmen classes. Quite
unintentionally our girls set the style of hair dressing for the senior girls and this
naturally made us feel very important but it lasted only a few days. Then, we
have had one member who left the class to get married, a fact that seems a little

ALMA DovERsBBRGER, '13.
The call of the woods proved too strong for the Juniors. Accordingly on Fri-
day afternoon of October first they started in a large farm wagon bound on a
nutting expedition. Their destination was Nash's woods, about four miles south-
west of town. They gathered a great many walnuts, and, well pleased with their
success, they started back to town amid the noise which is characteristic of the
jolly Juniors. The nuts were sold and realized a very pleasing sum which was
put in the treasury to be used in the future for the benefit of the class.
On Wednesday evening, Oct. 6th, the Senior class was entertained at the home
of Hershel Francis, east of town. The crowd left the 6:30 car and were met at
Walsh's crossing, by Herschel, with a big hay wagon. They all piled onto this and
were conveyed to the Francis home where they settled themselves for an eve-
ning of fun and jollity. They indulged in games and social conversation, the time
passing by unheeded, until at a very late hour they left declaring that they had
spent a most enjoyable evenining.
Desiring to celebrate Hollowe'en the Seniors had a party at Dane Patterson's.
The house was decorated in a unique style, mirrors forming alarge part of the
decorations, and the lights were covered with colored paper, making aghostly
glow over everything. After even this small light had been extinguished and there
was nothing left but the light which came from the grinning faces of the Jacko'lan-
terns. the guests further enhanced this ghostly effect by telling wierd tales.
Refreshments were served at a late hour, and soon after the guests were made
to walk down cellar backwards where a couple of ghosts awaited them. Since
this was too much for their equanimity they soon departed, leaving the assurance
that everything had been appreciated to the fullest extent.
The Sophomores commenced their round of parties with a Ha1lowe'en hay-
ride. On the night of Oct. 29th the entire class, accompanied by their chaperons,
went on a hay wagon to the home of Thomas Robinson, about a mile and one-half
south of town, and there spent a merry evening.
The I-lallowe'en party of the Juniors was held on Friday evening, Oct. 29th, at
the residence of Carl Richman. The Richman home was decorated appropriatly
for Holloween and the class went en masque thus adding merriment to the occas-
ion. A line time was had. A two course luncheon was served, after which the
class departed for their respective homes, declaring they had had one of the best
times of their varied career as a class.
On the 23rd of Dec., the class of '11 had a party at the home of Paul Barr.
They went to his home in alarge hay wagon and there were entertained with
games among them being forfeits which caused a great time. The refreshments
were chosen by means of a mock menu and after they had heartily partaken of
these dainties, they returned home.
On Thursday afternoon, Dec. 23rd, the Seniors entertained the high school
and the departmental classes with a one act Christmas Comedy entitled, "Is Santa
Claus A Fake?" in which all the members of the class took part. It was highly
amusing and was one number of the many interesting and instructive programmes
given by the different classes during the term.
The Seniors showed their esteem and regard for Miss Woody and their good
intentions toward Miss Scotten by a reception given at the home of Ralph Kemp,
January 17th, which was both a farewell to Miss Woody and a welcome to Miss
During the evening many enjoyable games were played. A short programme
was arranged in which a mock wedding figured an important part and also a
vocal solo which was highly appreciated.
Miss Woody was presented with a High School souvenir spoon as a token of
the affection with which she was regarded by the Senior class. At a late hour
refreshments were served and the guests departed after having bid Miss Woody
farewell with much lamentation.
The Junior Reception was held at the home of Florence Lewis. on North
West Street, Friday evening, May 13.
Juanita Tresidder, Charlotte Wells, and Blanche Holman entertained the
Senior class and Faculty on Tuesday night, May 3rd.
The guests assembled at the home of Blanche Holman where they made
merry. Samples of the gir1's dresses were distributed among the boys and by
these they chose their partners for luncheon.
A luncheon was served of: Tomato bouillion, reception flakes, olives. After
partaking of this the guests were told to get ready to go on a journey. The mem-
bers of the class started out and formed themselves into a train with a motorman
and conductor to lead the way and look after the welfare of the passengers.
The train stopped at the home of Charlotte Wells and the passengers were
served the second course of the luncheon consisting of: Hot rolls, jelly, waldorf
salad, veal loaf, coffee. Partners were formed for the next journey by matching
paper dolls. After the second journey they stopped at Juanita Tresidder's where
the last but not the least course of the dainty luncheon was served. The last
course consisted of cream, wafers and mints. After luncheon the guests were en-
tertained by a contest in which the prize, a beautiful T. H. S. pennant, was won by
Edna Repp. After an hour of games and music the favors, small T. H. S. pen-
nants, were distributed and the guests left for their homes highly congratulating
the hostesses upon their novel form of entertainment and party and pronouncing
the evening a most decided success in every way.
The Graduating Class of '10 gave a class picnic on May 4th to round up their
four years of pleasure together. They departed on the 10:30 car for Kokomo
Park with heavily laden lunch baskets. After reaching the park they first hunted
a desirable place for eating and prepared dinner. As soon as dinner was over the
class scattered themselves over the park and spent the afternoon, some in playing
ball, skating. and dancing and others in taking kodak pictures. Many delightful
snapshots were taken of the crowd which in later years will be regarded as great
treasures by the members of the class, who know that very soon they will be far
apart out in the wide, wide world. At 5:30 the picnic crowd came home, after
they had spent the most delightful and also the last festive day together as a class.
Dedicated to Mr. G. G. Dodds.
Now listen tightly, lad and lass,
I'l1 tell you how it came to pass.
'Twas just the time when ghosts and thieves
Are prowling 'round behind the trees.
Along the street a couple went,
On reaching home their thoughts were bent,
He tightly held on to her arm,
She felt secure from hurt or harm.
He took her just as far as the gate,
He went not in for it was late.
"Good night", he said, and started home,
She thought him brave to go alone.
As he walked along quite hurridly
saw a man behind a tree.
quickly stepped into the street,
did the many they had to meet.
never thought to compromise,
turned around and back he ilies
where he left the little maid
Who thought he was of naught afraid.
She let him in and locked the door,
He told her robbers, three or four,
Had attacked him and tried to rob
Him of his rings, his watch and fob.
'iGive me," he said, a shot gun or
Some other article of war."
No guns there were so with a moan
He stepped up to the telephone,
And calling up the chief of police
Told him a gang of bloody thieves
Were trying hard to get at him
So please send out a dozen men.
The dozen men came on the run,
Each one armed witlf club or gun.
They found no robbers anywhereg
'Twas just, they thought, a trick to scare
The gentleman. But to be safe
They took him to his boarding place.
Poor Mr. Dodds has never guessed
That it was just a Senior jest!

HE season opened with prospects of as strong a team as has represented Tip-
ton High School in a number of years. Practice was begun immediately, about
twenty candidates reporting, among whom were four old men, they being Glenn,
Wagstalf, Francis and VanBuskirk. The team was soon chosen, and began prepar-
ation for the opening game of the season. Although of late years Tipton High School
has been classed among the weaker schools in football, the management decided to
re-enter fast company, and seek to regain the high standing which the Prussian Blue
held on the gridiron in former years. Accordingly manager Wagstaff sceduled
games with Noblesville, Kokomo, Westfield, Frankfort, Galveston and Attica
The opening game of the season was played at Noblesville. The Tiptonians,
though playing at a disadvantage owing to the absence of the regular ends and to
one of the half backs having a sprained ankle, gave the Hamilton County lads a
hard struggle, but in the end met defeat. The game was hard fought and interest-
ing throughout, although Tipton was necessarily forced to play a defensive game
owing to the crippled condition of her team.
On the following Saturday Kokomo High School was met on the local Held.
They were confident of an easy victory, as indeed they well might be, as they had
the advantage in weight, experience and coaching. However, the first few minutes
of play induced them to change their opinion of matters, and to see that if they wish-
ed to win they would have to put forth their best efforts. The Tipton lads put up
a splendid game, threatening their opponents goal again and again, but each time
losing the ball by unlucky fumbles at critical stages of the game. The Kokomo lads
finally won, scoring a touchdown in the last second of the play in the first half, and
another in the second half. With an even break in the luck of the day Tipton
would surely have won, they clearly outplayed the Kokomo aggregation. The game,
though hard fought, was clean and interesting throughout, though marred at the last
by Hragg-chewing" over some bad decisions by the referee.
On the succeeding Saturday Westfield High School was played at that place.
The teams were evenly matched, victory finally falling to Westfield.
Galveston was next met, and after a hard game at that place, defeated the
Owing to inclement weather the game with Frankfort was cancelled.
The Attica High School team was met at that place on Thanksgiving. The
Tiptonians did not have much hope of victory as Attica had not been scored on
this year, and was a contestant for the State Championship. However in the first
half they held their own and kept Attica from scoring, though themselves unable to
score. The last half Attica put in six new men, and as a result were able to score
almost at will on the fagged Tiptonians. The team, being light, necessarily had to
rely on speed and team work. It certainly had these as the Attica H. S. Principal,
a University of Illinois veteran, remarked that it was the fastest and cleanest work-
ing High School team he had seen in a number of years.
The poor showing of the team must be ascribed to its inability to stop tackle
bucks, due to ite lightness and lack of scrimmage practice.
The regular line up of the team was as follows:-
Kemp- .... ----145--H --
Webb ...... ,...
140 .... ....,

The substitutes were Smith, Woods, Groves and O'Banion.
There comes an hour of sadness.
And I am lonely still,
When I think of the extreme weakness
I showed at Noblesville.
I ought to have been stronger,
But the crisis found me weak:
And now I am still regretting
I had a yellow streak.
My cause, my team mates languished,
And now, while knowing this,
I must regret forever
The fumble that I missed.
I saw beside me playing
A trembling Tipton lad,
I might, but did not comfort,
'Cause I was just as bad.
A great game lost forever
By men who were unfit,
I might have been the star one,
But I did not have the grit.
"He's afraid of hurting someone,"
I heard a rooter say,
I took my place in silence
And tried my best to play.
And so, as I sit thinking,
How bitterly I rue
That I made ne'er a touchdown
For the dear old Prussian Blue.
The first of the school year the High School girls, wishing to take part in
Athletics as well as the boys, formed a Basket Ball League. It consisted of four
teams, one from each class, and Miss Woody was chosen as a coach. Gawayne
Castle was rented as a practice court for Thursday evening of each week. Much
interest was taken and the girls progressed very nicely and acquired great pro-
ficiency in the art of Basket ball playing. At Christmas they adjourned to re-con-
vene after the holidays, but after vacation Miss Woody departed and they were
left without a coach. Thus ended the career of the T. H. S. Basket Ball League.
The boys also organizedaleague and the Seniors defeated all the other
teams thus gaining the championship of the school.
The Base Ball season opened early and with bright prospects. Five of last
season's infield reported for practice, together with some new players of ability
and promise. The squad was exceptionally strong in the fielding department.
Consequently the major part of the practice was on batting and base running.
The splendid hitting and the large number of stolen bases marked up to the credit
of the team clearly show that their efforts were not misdirected.
The Hrst game of the season was with Windfall H. S., on the Junction diamond.
For various reasons the Tipton boys were unable to muster their full strength.
In spite of this they showed the Visitors a close game, finally losing by the score of
7 to 6. Poor fielding lost the game as the local boys out hit the visitors. O'Banion
was the star of the game getting tive hits, two of which were doubles, out of five
times at bat.
The next game was with Noblesville H. S., at that place. The Tiptonians
entered the game determined to win, in retaliation for the defeat which they had
received in the foot all at the hand of the Noblesville youths. Their hopes were
amply realized as they succeeded in giving them a thorough drubbing, the final
score being 7 to 3, The Tiptonians had the best of the contest all the way, the
Noblesville aggregation only getting one hit to their opponents eleven. Their only
runs were scored on errors incident to wet grounds.

There was once a senior named Dane,
Whose translations would give one a pain.
So vile was his work,
And so much did he shirk,
That he drove Miss Towne quite insane.
Perhaps you have read, in the legends of old,
How the snail was the slowest of things,
But the snail has Webb unmercifully sold,
When Webb his Latin unslings.
Bethel is a lad very queer,
One day he went hunting, I hear.
He followed a calf V
For a mile and a half,
And swore he was tracking a deer.
Jimmie is a Senior by birth,
And lives a good life on this earth.
Do you think it is nice,
If he falls on the ice,
That he should so fluently curse?
'Twas the iirst day of school.
Ruth and Dudley didn't know
That Floyd Webb was sitting
In the back of the row.
They thought they were alone,
But Floyd was there, alack.
He saw their heads together,
He heard their lips go "smack!"
There was a boy in our class,
"Rowdy" is his name.
Somebody hid his hat one night,
He searched for it in vain.
And when he saw his hat was gone,
He nearly had to swear,
But Hufford opened up his heart
And gave him his to wear.
Surely of a latent bent
Toward poetic temperment,
Before you, genius, we retreat,
And hide our unpoetic feet.
To Bethel Templeton
Here sighs with lamentations and loud moans."
Now I lay me down to sleepg
May all the angels round me keep.
If Mr. Dodds sees me now,
He'l1 fire me out and raise a row.
Prayer of Louis Hurley.
If credits were bought with the mighty plunk,
John D., would pass and the rest would flunk.
There was a young senior named Sam,
Before the exams he would cram.
But one day under Curry,
He flunked in a. hurry,
And now he is as meek as a lamb.
Paul Smith went dancing one night,
And it was a wonderful sight
To see him fly round,
And sometimes fall down,
When his partner he swung to the right.
I spend my time in reading,
Flying moments never heeding,
And it's Aleck Pope I like to read the bestg
Thus I read whene'er I can,
His great essay labeled "Man",
And I weep to think-you surely know the rest.
ODE To THE PoNY.
Friend of our fathers, known of old,
Steed of student of every clime,
We fain would have your praises told,
Thy hoof prints left in the sands of time.
Friend of our fathers, bear us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
The cribber bold that puts his trust
On printed cuff, or pony's word-
No tough exam by him is cussed,
No vain regret from him is heard,
And ages still to come, you bet,
Will ride on thee-lest they forget.

Mr. Flanders once borrowed some money of Mr. Berry. There was some
misunderstanding about when it was due, it seems, and Mr. Berry sent Mr. Flanders
a statement before the money was due. This made Mr. Flanders very angry, and

"You was a goose-Berry to send me the bill-Berry, before it was due-Berry:
