It was on the 28th of January, IQO8, that the class of ,lan-
uary '12, embarked on the Steamer High School, one the best
of its kind, to sail the sea of Education. 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
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
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
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. IENXIE KINGAN.

For seyeral years past. it has been customary for the boys
and girls of the several classes to haye their respective class
0i'gaiiizatif.i1is which are usually fornied in the Scapliuiiicwe
term. 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
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
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
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-

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,

they mean "They Arc Roses Selected." You may take your

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.

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.
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 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
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.
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.
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
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.

Out of the multitude was she chosen. From among the
many she alone was selected. 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

such honors as come to mortal but once. She is the director

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
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-
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. Ruth Swearingen and Mildred Glenn, teachers in the
city schools came up from Topeka. Ed McIntosh, who was
playing leading man for the North Bros., at the Majestic, got
off for the day. Leslie Stewart could not leave his stock ranch
in Texas. Garfield and Okellan Grant were too busy teaching
at Muskogee, while Professors Fanny Patton, Pearl Rhodes

NYireless, Mentophone, cable and telegraph did their work
well, and the day before Christmas witnessed the gathering of
a jolly crowd of folks, all home ties left behind, some a little
gray, a little fat, or a little thin, some few bald, but all glad of
the chance to get together again. They made the prosperous
city of Sabetha take notice as they poured out to the great
mansion of Guildcrest. The two hosts forgot their aches and
pains, and you never saw a finer, happier homecoming than

Tune: "j'ingboo Man." Mr. Stout.
NVhen I was a little bit o Freshman
W'hen I was a jes so high
Seniors used to tell me a story
'Bout a bold, bad man in the office
And every morn when to the school l'd scamper
And down the hall to my class room I'd sneak
I'd sit down in my seat
And then they'd say to me
Heres the story of that awful man.
He knows everything you do
He has got his eyes on you
Knows what the teachers say
Listens to you every day
He knows when you go out at night
He has you always in sight
Be as good as good as you can,
And don't let him get you-this terrible man
"Harbour of Love." Miss Ewing.
Miss Ewing is all that she should be

XYhen hard tests appear
You are all that you should be.

And real life has begun
For its school days happiness past

And go to another school

We want a man

If you're on the outs
And have a doubt

That won't do
But you do,
Knock wood, knock wood.

Or go around the hlock for a loving walk
And you think you're bright, out of sight all right.
"I Love the Name of Mary." Misses Barkley, Harri
son, Xliilson, and Daniels.
XVe love the name of Mary

Last night I dreamed of you prized thing

In letters gold and grand
But when I awoke
No sweater was there.

For everyone to see
That we'er brave team fellows
And that will cheaper be.

IV here pretty Seniors go
I gaze upon the beauty there
As we did long ago.
I think of days when you and I

Of days gone bye,
Teachers dear bring memories
Of you I-Iigh School.

Should remember that they are at the beginning of a life of
activity and usefulness in the World, and in Whatever field they
may choose, financial success is as necessary as literary attain-
ment is desirable.
It is a very easy thing to acquire the habit of making money,
but the person who cultivates the habit of saving in early life
is the one Who Will be comfortable in old age, and able to educate
his children and surround them With all of the necessaries and
many of the luxuries of life.
A payment of 35.00 per month in the Aetna Building Q,
Loan ASSOCia1Lion of Topeka, will mature S1000 in ten
years, which in a majority of cases will prove the foundation
for a life of comfort, if not the beginning of a fortune.

Thereis a 'gFeel at Homev
tmosphere in the Crosby Store
NE of our greatest endeavors is
to make "Ours" a store in which
people feel at home. We know
that many folks do feel at home
here, because Welve heard them to
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.
We Invite Everybody to irade Wiih Us Who likes a Store in Which ihey Can feel al Home
