XYhen we arrived at High School Harbor we w ere first ordered to show our tickets, then the captain put us in charge of the ofhcers of the steamer. who assigned us to our respective compartments. The next morning we sailed out of the Harbor. waving farewells to those who remained behind on Grade School land. During the Freshman Hatch we had a dreadful time. None of us had ever taken such a voyage and did not know what to do. lYe carried all the life preservers that were required for our course, even the fiat, white kind that is so much used in the study of English literature. Many a time we lost our way and were unable to find the right staterooms, or wandered down the wrong companionway only to be stunned into a quaking terror by the loud voice of an ofiicer shouting, "Take the other stairsf' and trembling with fear we obeyed orders while the passengers on the Senior deck smiled down at our mistakes. Some days the sea ran high and the waters threatened to wash us off the deck, Many grew pale and weary from the unaccustomed rocking of the steamer, but only a few left us to return to land. lVe soon began to notice our surroundings and before we realized what was taking place we were resting at anchor for the Tournament, the first event of our Freshman watch. ,Xt that time we were so insignificant that we were merely given space in one corner to see the events that took place. Shortly after that we arrived at Sophomore Bay. Soon after we moved to the next deck and felt quite im- portant at the change. Then under the direction of Miss Greenough we elected Philip Gray first Mate for the first half of the watch. XYe chose the colors, purple and white, which the class of January 'oo so graciously dedicated to us and we also selected the violet as the class flower. XYe next turned our minds to something different and one calm night we left the old steamer and gave our first party at the home of Annis Smith. lt proved quite a success and many more good times followed. Between XYatches in the Sophomore voyage Mr. Miller, our Captain. left us to take charge of the high school in Kansas City. Kansas. and Mr. Stout accepted the position of Captain. ln the second XYatch we elected Harold Sears as nrst Mate. At this time the girls organized as the H. I. Cfs, later chang- ing to K. A. N. S.. and the boys as the T. A. R. S. The Sophomore lYatch over we arrived at Junior Landing where we moved up to the next deck. XYe elected Merrill Stevens as our first Mate but he left our Steamer for another and Harold lVoodford guided us through the remainder of the watch. At this time we also lost our director, Miss Green- ough. who left us to sail the sea of niatrimony. For the second lYatch Houghton Albaugh was first Mate and with the assistance of Miss Virginia Meade, our new di- rector, we came to Senior Landing, where we moved to the Senior deck for the last lap of our voyage. By this time we had become accustomed to life on the Steamer High School and we no longer stood in awe of the Captain and his Qfficers. NYe often sauntered into the Cap- tain's quarters for a short talk and no matter how stormy the sea or how many orders were to be given he would gladly give some of his time to us. A-Xnd the Officers of the well-trained crew took great pains to train us for our life on the broad Sea of Education. In the nrst half of the Senior XYatch, George Mulford was first Mate and under his direction we obtained our class pins. The chief event, howey er, was the Sub-Senior reception. One day as we stood by the rail gazing oyer the rolling' waves, we saw a hazy outline in the distance. As it drifted nearer we found it to be a raft without any sails or other means of guidance and on it was the word "Reception,' em- blazoned in gold, and supported on the wings of silver eagles. After much planning and consultation with the Captain and first Mate we decided to tow the raft ashore. Then Miss Meade. our able director. came to the rescue and tendered us the hospitality of her home. Thus on the evening of the 3ISt of May, IQIO, the old Steamer High School lowered her an- chors at Meade lsland and all on board attended the Recep- tion which was one of the most delightful and pleasing events of our voyage. Through the last half of our Senior Xliatch XYalter Davis as Hrst Mate guided us successfully. Early in the term the en- tire class was organized into the january 'I2 Dramatic Society, with Charles Eldridge as president. Soon afterwards we se- lected our play and on the night of December 15th, IQI 1, we boarded the good ship "Bolivar" and presented "The Dicta- tor." It is recorded as one of the best plays ever presented by Senior passengers of the Steamer High School. Now as we stand by the rail, with our baggage of wisdom, we think of the time, quickly drawing near, when we shall dis- embark and with our passports in our hands turn our faces to- ward new conquests. Visions of other Voyages to more dis- tant ports are Hitting before our eyes, beckoning us on. Perhaps all of us may not sail the Sea of Education any longer but no matter what we do or where we are, we shall al- ways remember with pleasure the delightful voyage of the Class of January yI2.

The girls of -lanuary '12 had eagerly awaited the time when they would be allowed to organize their Class society. So after the opening of the IQOQ fall term, the Soplicaiiime girls met in Room E and elected officers. Mary Nleightman was elected president. At this meeting, it was decided that the meetings should be held the last Friday of the niunth. The hrst meeting was held at the home of Maureen Kle- Kernan and there the constitutiun was read and signed by all present. The name chosen was H i Cs, the colors, green and white, and the object. a general good time. Nearly all the girls of the class were present, and, thus, it seemed a good beginning was made. lt is often said, "A good beginning makes a bad ending," but this is not true of the li. gl.. N. S. and fin the other hand. it might be quoted. 'llllell be- gun is half done." With such a good beginning, the Slllj--llllllfll' term was be- gun with Ruth Kaster, president. At the beginning of this term, it was decided fm' several reasons to change the name H i Cs, so li. .-X. X. S. was adupted. Also, in this year we sent for our pins which arrived here, about the latter part of May. The junior year began with Vivian Herron in the presi- dents chair. In this year a mock wedding was held at the home of Mary Cunningham. During the foot-ball season the K. A. N. S. had line parties to all games played on the home held. Jennie Kingan was the choice for president during the Sub- Senior term. About the middle of the term a party was given at the home of Alice Douglas. The guests were entertained by a one act farce, 4'The Ministers XVife,', which was the escapade of some mischievous girls at boarding school. Chaf- ing dishes were used to serve the refreshments, and all agreed that the K. A. N. S. had fully demonstrated their domestic science ability. The Sub-Senior Reception came at the last of this term, so that not much was done until the close of school, when a progressive party was given at the homes of Helen Haskell, Jennie Kingan and Vivian Herron. The Senior term was the busiest of all, for besides the reg- ular meetings and our regular school work, there were class parties and the Semor play. During the Christmas holidays, a football party was given at the home of Miss Meade, our popular class director, in recognition of the excellent work done by the team. lt would be impossible to do justice to the parties given by the K. A. N. S., however one of the best features of the K. A. N. S. is the number of spreads given by the girls for them- selves. Not only have we had many spreads, but they all were good in quality. Since people have frequently attempted to appropriate the eats provided by the K. A. N. S. for their par- ties, it would seem that the K. A. N. S. have a reputation for good 'eatsf l.ida Hardy has been the president for the past year, and it would seem she has proved herself worthy of her charge. The K. A. N. S. have had so many jolly times together, that it has been decided to continue the life of the society, so the meaning of K. A. N. S. will not be revealed, but the girls of jan. ,IZ will continue to be known as the K. A. N. S.

About the year 1491. or a few years later a bunch of fellows met in room F. Topeka High Schocl. Xo one seemed to know why he was there so they appointed a committee to nnd out. and ran home to dinner. At the next meeting this committee reported that the pur- pose of our organization was to secure invitations to the K. A. Xfs parties. and that if we could not get these invitations any other way we were to give parties of our own. They also stat- ed that we needed some cnicers and a name. The name T. A. R. S. was selected and unanimously adopt- ed. As we are XYestern boys. but few of us have seen the ocean and none of us expect to sail the briny deep for a living. the name was considered very suitable. Our presidents have always been chosen for line personal ap- pearance. knowledge of parliamentary law and refusal to ac- cept graft. They were Mr. Honk QT-Tarolcll Sears. Hon. Cot. lGeorgel Heil. Rev. Hap. tHarmonl Drum. Alys llfllwoodl XYashburn. Lit. D. and Gen. Pete 1Paull Anderson. who still lives. Une purpose of our organization has been well carried out: that is the T. A. R. S. have been allowed to attend many enjoy- able parties given by the K. A. X. S. For these we wish now to express our heartiest appreciation. A few words might be said about the humble social eiorts of the T. A. R. S. themselves. These have consisted of spreads. bikes and line parties. One notable hike was taken out to the Davis Farm north of town. Since we brought back all the party alive. this hike was considered a great success. The line party will be remembered by the fact that the right to certain seats was settled both by war and arbitration. No lives lost. The T. A. R. S. have held some meetings at which there were no ladies present. Here there were some queer doings. Each member ate a pie and a quarter and for entertain- ment threw books at the rest of the boys. The business part of the meeting consisted of listening to the Presidentys an- nouncement, "Boys, I move we have a party next Friday night." It was carried without a vote. The initials T. A. R. S. are supposed by some to mean, liTPfl7"l'lIg flffm' Rl'gflfC01l,S'1IF.9.Y, Selah," another guess is that they mean "They Arc Roses Selected." You may take your choice. GEO. A.

T BASKET-BALL TEAM llllflli- jflunthall The football team of IQII has just passed through a very successful season winning the majority of their games. Seven games were played, the team winning four and losing three. -Xt the commencement of the season the boys all had their minds set on one game. that one with Lawrence. lt had been urged all over that the Lawrence team was the strongest ag- gregation or football machine in the state as they had con- quered all their adversaries. It was with great expectation that they arrived in Topeka on that memorable day. NVe all know the result and this game put T. H. S. in line for the Mis- souri Valley championship. Qn Thanksgiving Topeka played Beatrice. who defeated us and thus made good her title to the fastest team among the high schools in this part of the country. The remarkable showing made by the team was through the tireless efforts of Manager Montgomery and Mr. XVood- ward both of the Y. Bl. C. A. and the star player, Captain "Cot'l Heil. These three men rounded into shape a bunch of men who were practically new at the game and made them into the second strongest aggregation in the Missouri Valley. Although the class of January 512 has not a big representa- tion of men who could play football, it has produced a star player to whom a great deal of the success of the team is due and also two substitutes who are entitled to T's. These three men are Heil, Mclntosh and Albaugh. And as we leave we wish all success to the team next fall whose prospects are exceedingly bright. eganfhing the 291155 nf GBM Glnarh At the end of last term Manager XYard H. Cfreen handed in his resignation. It was owing to this that a new manager had to be elected. There were several men who were considered for the place, but the office was placed in the hands of L. Montgomery who was physical director at the Y. M. C. A. Mr. Montgomery is considered one of the hnest physical di- rectors in the middle west and we were indeed fortunate to have the opportunity of getting such a man, a man who was square and principled for the right, who would not take an un- due advantage of an opponent, to direct our athletics. But he has gone owing to his acceptance of a position in California as probation officer of Santa Clara district, and it was with the deepest regret that the students of T. H. S. had to bid him good-bye, but we wish him the greatest success in the new posi- tion which he has accepted. Mr. XVooclward who was Mr. Montgomery's assistant in training the football squad has succeeded to the place left va- cant by Mr. Montgomery, and we know that he will fill the place most successfully and add new life to athletics in T. H. S., as he does in all projects in which he has been connected. 235151221-hall It is a trifle early to make promises for the basketball season but everything points toward a most successful one. The team is composed of regular men from last season. Games have been scheduled with the fastest teams in the Missouri Valleyg Topeka will play this year Omaha, Beatrice, Lincoln, St. Joseph. the three Kansas City, Mo. and Kansas City, Kaus. high schools. The team has played one game and lost, but they regard that as the last defeat of the season. Ever since the Sophomore year the Jan. '12 class has had one or more regulars and at least two substitutes until this year when the team is made up of four members of the class of Jan. '13, who are XYashburn, XYoodford, Heil and Anderson. Last year practically the same team won second place in the state tournament and although these men are soon to graduate the school has a second team which is deyeloping into a very fast bunch and who will ably uphold the high standard of athletics in T. H. S. But. as the class of January 'IZ graduates it will have the honor of saying that it furnished the star men who played T. H. S. foremost in line in the basketball world among the high schools of the Missouri Valley and of Kansas. THE "WORLD" STAFF one N12 'c1oNs The mnrlh The career of journalism in the Topeka High School has been a very interesting one. This important feature of school life had its begimiing in "The Budget" in 1893. This was not strictly a school paper, but each edition contained a few outside articles. The publication of the paper was discontinued in February. 1894. From this date until 1896 the school was without a paper. However, journalism again gained a foot-hold and on Sep- tember 18, 1896 the first edition of "The XVorld" was issued. It was edited in a newspaper form, consisting of 4 pages. The next year the paper was reduced to magazine form of eight pages. From this small magazine our paper has grown to its pres- ent size of twenty pages and is published semi-monthly. The small departments have been done away with and a large local column has taken their place. Besides this improvement tlfe general appearance of the paper has been taken into considera- tion. Appropriate cuts have been secured as a heading for each department. Also much time and talent has been spent on the design for the cover. A greater interest has been established in the paper as the standard of its contents have risen, for all the material under- goes the vigilant eye of our English teachers before going to press. ln each copy, appear at least one story and generally two, written by some member of the school. Each term the "XVorldl' staff has attempted to improve the paper and each in turn has succeeded. But it has been stated by several leading business men of our city that they never be- fore enjoyed 'fThe VVorldH so much as they have during the last term. This success has been largely due to the hard and faithful work of the staff and especially the editor-in-chief, Houghton Albaugh and the business manager, Paul Anderson. V1v1AN HERRON. 4 FEIITIEI lf ever a class was well favored, by the Goddess of Drama, it surely was the class of january ,I2. The success of the Sen- ior attraction, "The Dictator" indicates that there was a more than ordinary run of dramatic ability in the cast, and that it was used to advantage in the presentation of our one play. It was pronounced by critics as the best amateur cast that has ever appeared on the stage in this city. The Dramatic society of the class of January ,IZ was organ- ized early in the present term with Kirke Mechem, presidentg Marie Porter, secretaryg and Harold Wfoodford, manager. Owing to Kirke Mechemls withdrawal from school, Chas. El- dredge was appointed in his place. All members of the Senior class were elected membership in the Dramatic society, and all were heartily interested in the success of its first venture in the field of drama. After much deliberation, "The Dictatorf' by Richard Hard- ing Davis was chosen, and a more suitable play could not have been found. The action of the play is in Central America, throwing some very interesting sidelights upon the frequent revolutions there, and also presenting a character study of a New York society man. The play was genuine and not for a moment did the interest lag. Beginning with a scene on board ship, the action rises to a fitting climax at the end of each act. A real wireless telegraph instrument added to the genuineness of the situation. The leading part was ably car- ried by Herbert Guild. The part was very heavy, and it is needless to say that Herbert did it full justice. Houghton Al- baugh carried the comedy part, as a detective. His work again and again set the house to laughter. Maureen McKernan, as a spanish widow was excellentg Jennie Kingan, as a missionary girl carried her part very well. lndeed these were supported by such an excellent cast that success was inevitable. Over and above all was the guiding hand of our excellent coach, Miss Helen Morrow, who from the Hgreenest bunch everl' brought out the ability to act. The result was the best play ever put on by a high school class. CHARLES ELDRIDGE. '1 I 2 Q E1 vi 3 A -. z O z 55 O En 42 U I k R ff f X fx I ildings. hool Bu Q U2 ifhe jlluremsin urietg For the last few years there has been a very noticeable lack of interest in all literary enterprises-particularly in debating, among the students of the Topeka High School. In the recent inter-school debates in which Topeka has participated, we have been defeated invariably, often by schools of much smaller size and standing. Up to this year, matters of this kind have been in the hands of two literary societiesg but these institutions failed to better conditions because their aims were not in the direction of developing original public speaking, and because their intiuence was on a rapid decline and they were so weak that they could accomplish nothing. There was evidently a pressing need for some organization which would undertake to re-create among the students an interest in debate and to bring the Topeka High School to occupy that high position in intellectual affairs which its large attendance and splendid facilities of equipment and accessible libraries would seem to warrant. The Forensic Society was created to supply this want. About a dozen students organized the Topeka High School Forensic Society in the middle of the fall term of nineteen hun- dred and ten. Mr. Hickey was instrumental in getting the club started and was elected critic of the society. Ira Barrett was the hrst president: he was succeeded the following term by Kelsey Gardner, and Leigh Garver now holds that office. The society gives its attention to public speaking, especially as practiced in debate, and to drilling in parliamentary usage. One of the best features of the weekly meetings is the giving of talks by public men for the benefit of the students. The club now has a membership of twenty-five, and new members are being constantly admitted. Younger and stronger than either of the literary societies. the Forensic has survived them both, and is now the only active organization devoted to any form of intellectual activity that we have. It has had to struggle against the great handicap of general indifference on the part of the students to the activities which it represents, but it has grown steadily in efficiency and is now a real factor in our school life. XVhether or not its in- tluence is now powerful enough that we can successfully com- pete with other cities in debate, remains to be seen. If its sup- porters continue their work with the same zeal and enthusiasm which they have been showing, the Forensic Club will succeed. It certainly deserves success, for in its aims and endeavors it is as worthy an organization as ever existed in the school. sr nu "fav ,'-S Q63 X.

To her has been given the high- est honor of all time. Qther honors will come and appear dull in the light of the splendor of today. From her sanction of cook books and theory books and test papers, she was lifted to the high place. Upon her bonny brown head have been heaped such honors as come to mortal but once. She is the director of the class of .lanuary 1912, and to her is this book and all it contains dedicated. :X tall man, with his toes turned out, sails down upon you. Should you stand in the halls talking to 6'her', or "him,H should you block the halls. should you loaf during vacant periods and go to the grocery or the little church around the corner, youill bring his wrath upon your foolish heads. Or perhaps of an afternoon, you and a choice few decide to have a little sport spraying each other and the halls with the drinking fountains, you'll find him suddenly in your midst and then. woe unto you. There is a brighter, happier side to him, but wicked seniors seldom see it. If you're in trouble and need a friend go to him. Hell turn from his big desk with its piles of work and with his hand upon his work will smile his slow, warm smile and you'll know you'ye come to the right place.

Hes to deep for even this solemn and learned senior. Heres a breath of spring and a faint odor of violets. At the sight of her you think of soft knots of lavender ribbon, of old lace and Dresden china. As the stately little lady with the soft grey pompadour comes softly down the stairs you almost ex- pect to see a mincing gallant in powered wig and silken hose, hand her into ye old time coach and whisk her from your sight. But she only comes on with the captive sunlight in her eyes. After she is gone you breath a sigh and turn away, with an odor of violets about you. Oh my! lsnit he cute! Nay my child, he's all right. He,s only looking for a cat. Beware, all you maidens who have ten- der hearts. lnto his realm only the hard hearted may enter.

But from the way he handles all those big, rough boys, I guess he isn't lacking in any of the qualities needed to give wisdom to the young. Future generations will rise up and call her blessed. Or will the future generations know whence comes their benefits? Into the hands of this warm hearted lady is placed the hope of the future. By her teachings and examples the maids of today will be the strength of tomorrow. XVe,ll vote! Yes, we will, and welll do it wisely and well, because our friend has shown us the way. If when you leave room Q, you do not enjoy poetry, you are hopeless. There is where you find the lady who teaches you to read poetry and to understand what you're reading. She's the lady who gives you a test to bring tears to your eyes and then goes away to the ofhce. She is a Christian to us. Don't think that because she sits and smiles, and smiles and smiles when you say "I donlt know," that you've struck a snap. just wait, thats all. But the thing that we'll remember is her read- ings. XVhat senior does not know, "That in my mind of all mankind, I love but you alonef, Oh! VVhat can I say! XVhat is there to say that has not al- ready been said so often. NVe all know her, love her and adore her. At her shrine worships the school, the football team in particular. XVhat would a home game be like without her on the side lines. She's hard, yes, that's been said. but what does that matter? Does it hurt to study? Sheis small, shels brown and she's beloved. The girls worship her and bring her in- digestables from cooking classes, the boys worship her and bet huge wagers in order that they may lose. You enter her his- tory to know her, and while there she betrays you into learning much. The fellow conspirator against our hearts and the friend of our lady of the gridiron, is the mistress of the arts of Cicero. Since the passing of the A. V.

If she is she doesn't show it. XYe sometimes miss that dark figure by her side. Do you sup- pose she does? Oh, I guess not. Oh, She's so cruel. She takes poor innocent tender seniors out in the mud and snow and hail and frost and rain and wind and sleet to observe how a bud withstands the winter blasts. In thunder, lightning and rain you must go to Vinewood to hunt down the lichen in its lair. Tnto your mother's bread box, your sister's dressing table drawer and into your father's pipe case you must explore to discover how doth the little fungi grow. On she drives you with millions of drawings between you and the sheepskin and still work piles up. But after its all done you forget the work and toil and phyceaes and remem- ber her cheery smile and the big, big things she taught you. Tender freshie have you been cutting? Then shake and tremble, guilty sinner. Do you think that because her hair is fluffy and her eyes are blue that you can tell her anything. No: approach her with a placid face. a steady eye and assume a careless pose. Dispose of your hands in a graceful manner. Murmur 'fTllness" and look a little tired about the eyes. Now say 'fthanksn slowly and move slowly and gracefully away. Never show any undue haste, till around the corner. But youll learn some day that she's as sweet as she looks.

'ifmelnes 1942 The currents charging the great Trans-Atlantic airship- Aerianic had just been turned off, and the huge winged thing quivered along the tracks. From her sides passengers waved partings in a casual way, for was it not a night's journey to Paris, just a shopping run. Yet the man left on the Aerial platform didn't seem in a very cheerful frame of mind, as he turned from the good byels of his merry friends-joy, that rheumatic knee was certainly making itself felt, and Banker :Xlbaugh limped a little as he took his way to the Gyro station, after seeing his folks off for a Christmas in Paris. He had wanted them to go home to Beatrice for the holidays, but they had declared for Paris, and so old Houghton, as the fellows on exchange called him, was going back by himself to spend Christmas at home. The splendid stateroom of the Gyroscope car was enough to cheer anyone up as it raced along on its single elevated rail, safe, sure and swift. But by the time the Missouri border was reached Banker Albaugh had made up his mind to go home by way of Guildcrest and Kansas. "Bet a thousand dollar note, Herbls folks are off on a holi- day trip toof, so llll just drop around. An hour later found :Xlbaugh and Guild in the great den at Guildcrest swapping experiences, the better halves of both the portly gentlemen having decided to spend Christmas elsewhere. 4'lfVhat ails your foot, Guildfy exclaimed Albaugh, as he noticed a look of pain cross his friend's face." "It's my left foot 'old boyf the doctor says l've got to quit working and cut down rations, or it will be gout, sure. By the way, I had a talk with my boy Billy over the Mentophone last night. You know Billy's with Harshbarger in Brazil on that government contract to inoculate the upper Amazon coun- try with old Franks malarial bacteria. Billy's crazy to do something for the world as old Frank has: but whom do you think he met in charge of the National Pan-American wire- less? Yes it was Greider, and Billy has a lot to say about his girl Polly. The two grave faced men looked long into the glowing em- bers of carbonated stone piled in the wide hreplace. At last Albaugh said slowly, "Say, Herb, letis get the old class to- gether for Christmas. A fellow had just as well get a little fun out of this beastly money of ours. Guildcrest would be great for a homecoming. That was the way it all came about. just ten days away was Christmas, and the jan. Twelyes were scattered around the world. Like two school boys the two staid men of affairs were off to Topeka in their Aerial car, to consult with Pro- fessor Helen Coe Bishing, and Professor Helen Haskell Goss, of the Topeka High School as to the whereabouts of the old crowd. Professor Coe Bishing was not sure of all the records, so she mentophoned to Professor Lida Hardy Smith of the International Kindergarten school and got all the records com- plete. Busy hours followed as it was necessary to get the connec- tion established with the worlds circuit. Helen Koontz Riaz was still down in Jamaica, raising ginger, and keeping her planter husband guessing, Mary 'XVeightman Rogers was only too glad to leave her California home and family. Ruth Kas- ter Jones would come from her Canadian ranch in her big touring airship. Jennie Kingan Noble answered by wireless from her mission station at the South Pole. Madam Mar- guerite Koontz Heinrich cancelled an engagement for grand opera in Moscow. Mary Cnnninghain Betzer, fat and jolly, answered from Nlfestern Kansas, where she was raising pigs, poultry, and pennies. lValter Davis was glad to get away from his Fifth Avenue brown stone front, and his string of ten cent stories. Edith Updegraff XVells, Isabel Dickinson and Alice Douglas were all campaigning for Suffrage in India, but stopped long enough to get in for the home-coming. Inspec- tor Eldridge came by Autoplane from Japan, and Doctor Ewers joined him at Honolulu. Madam Dickerson left her Paris shops at the very top of the season. Engineer Heil, and Lawyer XVoodford came oyer from Lawrence and Kansas City. Bishop Anderson reluctantly left his held in darkest Africa. Vivian Herron Brown came from the National col- lege of Cookery with four of her assistants: Professors Erwin, Israel. Jennings and Saddlemire. Florence Wlilson Black, a dashing widow, was still shadowed by Rusell Hickox, a com- poser of excellent music, who was still hoping. XVith them came Clarence Messick who had just written a new opera. George Helhnger. Ray Kimball and Elvin Joss came in from their farms. Olna Frantz and her sister Grace left their big band in New York City. Margaret Fuller Rice a famous writ- er of childrens stories came from her villa near Rome. Marie Porter Schmidt, the famous pianist answered from Vienna. Elsie Bowles and Grace NVillits came up from their homes on the banks of the Kaw. T.ucile Organ Murray was unable to come on account of the illness of her husband. Madame Mau- reen Mcliiernan, was playing Carmen before the Royal Court of Madrid, and was unable to come. Mabel Nonkin left her studio in Chicago. Ralph Keller, advance agent for Ringling Bros., who was spending the holidays at Potwin place could only get away for the day. Reverend Ellwood Wiashburn, reported from Boston. George Mulford bravely fighting for the freedom of the Patagonians, mentophoned his regrets. John Mahaffey, editor of the New York NVorld, was to be an honored guest, Frank Abke, rebuilding the Chinese wall, and Julian Root botanizing in the Philippines, were unable to come.

Being optimistic leaves a good taste in the mouth, brings contentment to many dissatisiied minds. Our twenty-four years experience has been a "BOOSTER" one, always thinking when business is out we will get our share. It has always proven so, and will continue to do so because We think we merit it. It has made ours, the largest business in the middle West, in our particular lines. Why Not? We have been honest in all our dealings, treating patrons as they enjoy being treated, sell- ing only the best merchandise is all in the HBooster,' line.

We know that many folks do feel at home here, because Welve heard them to so remark. Such remarks, We consider as fine a compliment as any person could pay a store. There must be some- thing about such a store out of the commonplace when one feels so much a part of it, that they feel easy, comfortable and at home in it. There must be the right atmo- sphere in such a store, and that atmosphere can only exist in a store, in which the people are fairly treat- ed-in which the right sort of goods are kept and Where nothing but fair prices are asked. Therefore When we hear people say: they 'tFeel at Home" here, we are pretty sure we are doing things pretty nearly correct-serving the community as it Wants to be served.
