Chdiics T. Grcivvn, R.Pd., h . X . I— OR tifteen years the i)ublic schools of Traverse City were under the suijervision of Mr. Chas. T. Grawn. Under his manai ' ement, during- that time, the} " have in- creased from twelve teachers to over forty. Their ,n " rovvth in tone, etticiency, and influence was no less conspicuous, giving them a good name throughout a wide region in North- ern Michigan. Good buildings were erected, and })eace, harmony, and progress prevailed. These schools are a monument to Mr. Grawn. What better monument can man build ? Mr. Grawn w as born in Washtenaw county, Mich., Oct. 4, 1857. His parents were Swedish pioneers. His boyhood days were spent on a farm in Kent Co., where he took many of his lessons in nature sludy. His toil was that of the ordinary farm boy, when not in school. For several months each year he was required to learn to read Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian, but in the winter he attended the district school of the neighborhood. When he was seventeen years of age he entered the Newaygo High School, which he attended for one year. While in this school he did janitor work and chores to pay the usual expenses of board and books. After attending the high school for one year he began teaching. His first experience was a term of four months in a district school at twenty dollars per month, boarding around. In the spring of 1876, he entered the State Normal School, and was graduated from that institution in June, 1880, having completed the classical course. During these four years his summer vacations were spent on the farm. earnitiu ' inoiu-v to pay his school exi)enses. After couiidct- iiii - his work at Yi)silanti he went to Plymouth, as Princi- pal of the ])ul lic schools, where his real career as an edu- cator beyan. For four years he tauyht in the scluiols of Plymouth with al)iiity and tlevotion. The i)e()i)le there have not forgotten him and they still turn to him for advice and counsel in educational matters. During- a part of this time he was Secretary of the Wayne County Board of School Examiners. It was during- thi.s time, also, that he began a home for himself. On Nov. :25, 18H1, he married Helen J. Blackwood of Northville, Wayne Co., who had been a student with him in the State Normal School. Thus was begun a ha]ipy home life which has grown with the years. In the fall of I " 4 Mr. Grawn came to Traverse City as Sui)erintendent of her public .schools. Since that time he has labored here and grown with the growth of the city. On the presentation of two theses in Ls92 the State Nor- mal College conferred ujDon him the degree of B.Pd., and the M.Pd. was added in ls97 by the same institution. The State Teachers ' Association claimed him as its president in L 94. By hard study and frequent attendance at professional meetings of all kinds Mr. Grawn has kept himself fully up to the times. Besides being successful in school he has been very successful in business ventures, and is one of the few teachers in Michigan who can show financial results for their labors. Personall} ' Mr. Grawn is pleasant, genial, sincere. He is greatly esteemed by his patrons, teachers and pupils. His heart is warm and bright, and the generous kindness of his nature shines out from every feature of his ojien coun- tenance, and his presence is like a benediction that is not soon forgotten. In June, 1h99, Mr. Grawn was appointed Superintend- ent of the Normal College Training School at Ypsilanti- He began his work there in the following- September, and in a few months had won the hearts and confidence of both students and facult}-, when, on the resig-nation of Principal Charles McKenny of the Central State Normal, the State Board of Education again showed their hig h appreciation of Mr. Grawn by electing " him to succeed Prin. McKenny. He entered upon his duties as Principal of that 3 ' oung ' but vigorous institution in April last. The reception given him by the students, teachers, and citizens of Mt. Pleasant is prophetic of a long- and successful administration in this important position. Cluirkis c i Horn, y A CHARLES HENRY HORN, Superintendent of the Trav- erse City Scliools. was born in a log ' house in Eaton Co., Midi.. January 0, lM(i5. Duringhis boyhood days his educational advantages were contined to a little red school house in the country district, but it was here that his ambi- tion for an education began. As he was not very strong physically, his teacher sug " gested to his father the advisa- bility of sending him to a High School. His father was pleased with the suggestion, and accordingly Mr. Horn en- tered the Charlotte High School at the ag-e of sixteen, where he graduated, valedictorian of his class, in 1885. Duringf the early part of Mr. Horn ' s struggle for an education, he admits that he fell in love frec uently and des- perately. He determined, however, that he would not let any girl stand between him and an education. The re- sult was that he lost all the girls, as he would not ask them to wait for him, thinking they should take the hint without being- asked. Before finishing the High School Mr. Horn taught one term in a district school and after graduation he accepted a position as teacher in the grades at Vermontville, Mich. During the winter he was severely afflicted with the rheu- matism, so that he was obliged to give up teaching, and in the si)ring left Michigan for California, thinking that a change of climate would benefit him. Returningf from Cali- fornia much improved in health, he taught school winters and worked on the farm summers for nearly two years. About that time he was employed by the Home Missionar} ' Society, and sj)ent one summer in Dakota doing missionary work. sijPT. criARLES n. nofts In 1888 Mr. Horn entered Olivet CoUe.u-e. and, with the mone} ' he had saved, together with that whicli he earned during " his course, g ' raduated A.B. in 1892. During " his college course he was much interested in literar} " work, and during " his junior year won the first prize in the reg ' ular oratorical contest. It was during " the latter part of his coUeg ' e course that he fell in love for the last time, and fatally. Shortly after his g ' raduation he was elected princii)al of the Eaton Rapids Hig " h School and served in this ca})acity for one year. His work in Eaton Rapids was very satisfac- tory and he was urg " ed to remain for a long " er time, but hav ing " received a call from Traverse City, he decided to accept the position as i)rincii)al of the Traverse City High School. A short time before coming " to Traverse City Mr. Horn mar- ried Miss Hila Meads, of Olivet. After spending- a short time at the World ' s Pair, Mr. and Mrs. Horn came to Trav- erse City and have remained here since. As principal of the Hig " h School, Mr. Horn has been ver} ' successful, winning " by his good judgement, tact and fidelity, the respect of all with whom he comes in contact. During " his life as principal he found time to pursue studies along advanced lines, especially in History and Latin. In 1895 Olivet College conferred upon him the degree of M.A., as evidence of the completion of the advanced studies re- quired for this honor. Last year upon Prof. Grawn ' s resignation Mr. Horn was appointed to till the vacancy as superintendent. Mr. Horn is not only a thorough and devoted schoolman but he has alTvays manifested a deep interest in whatever per- tains to the social, moral, and spiritual welfare of the com- munity in which he labors. His influence on the young peo- ple is always that which goes to make up the highest type of Christian character. He will be remembered by his asso- ciates and students as an inspiring " and helpful friend. Long may Traverse Cit} be able to retain him as Superin- tendent of her Public Schools. l:(l V(]r(l II. I ijcicr. EDWARD H. RYDER, Principal of the Traverse City High School, was born in Xorthville, Wayne county, Mich., August 9, 1)! 71.

December 23, 1896, Mr. Ryder married Miss Georgia Smyth of Marshall, Mich., who, after graduating- at the Normal CoUeg-e, taught in the Traverse City schools two years. His work in the school has been very satisfactory, and during his year as principal, he has won the respect of the students who feel they have in him a warm friend and true counsellor.

The character of these institutions determine very larg ' ely the intellectual and moral tone of the peoi)le who sustain them. As in a community so in a nation, schools are an essential consequence and the stand- ards of morality and intellig ' ence which they set up are the bulwark of the nation ' s political institutions. The life of the public schools will be continuous with that of the nation, when the} ' perish the nation will perish also. It is the peculiar pride of Traverse City that her citi- zens have always manifested a deep interest in the welfare of her public schools. Public education was one of the first solicitations of the pioneers who, nearly a half centur} ago, settled upon the shores of the beautiful Grand Traverse Bay. From that time to the present her interest in educa- tion has not waned. It would be interesting, if time and space permitted, to trace the history of the public schools of Traverse Cit}- since U- So, when all the children of the settlement were comfortabh ' quartered in small log school house on what is now East Front St. , down to the present time when over twent3 ' -two hundred are enrolled in beautiful and well equiijped buildings. But it shall be our purpose in this brief article to trace their progress more especialh since 18 4. From 1 58 to I " 8(i the scliools of the village were organ- ized under the general school law as an ungraded district; in the latter year, during the superintendency of S. G. Burkhead, thev were organized as a graded school district. which plan wax continued until I ' Q. ' ), when Traverse City was incorjHjrated as a city under a sjiecial charter. In the fall of l s4. the schools of Traverse City occu- pied a six room frame l uildin,i!: situated where the C intral Buildinj;- now stands: three one-room buildinjjfs on the cor- ner of Park and Washinjjfton streets: two one-room build- inyfs on the corner of Elm wood Ave. and Randolph street: and the small one-room buildiuiion the corner of Union and Tenth streets. The enrollment of ])upils for the year l ' - 4- h5, as shown by the records of that year, was 4 (», about fifty of whom were enrolled in the Hi ii School department. At this time thirteen teachers were employed: eleven in the g-rades and two in the Hiirh School. At the present time the schools occujjy four larsjfe, commodious and well-equip- jied brick buildinus and two small, wooden structures, all built and equipped at an expenditure of about sllu.UMf ' .OO. The enrollment for the present 3 ' ear is something " over twenty-two hundred,— three hundred and thirty live of whom are enrolled in the Hig " h School. In 1 h4 the equii)ment of the schools, aside from the general school furniture, consisted of a library of less than f ifty volumes, a set of outline maps and a globe. To-dav there are few schools in the State better equipped for doing thorough work along secondary lines. The special library for the High School contains about 1200 well-selected vol- umes, and in addition to this, grade libraries are .established in each building, containing books esi)eciall ' designed to supplement the work in geography, history and science. A small but well-selected pedagogical library for teachers has also been established. The physical and chemical labora- tories are stocked with apparatus, so that these courses can be carried on in accordance with strict laborator} ' methods. Fourteen years ago the High School contained but one course of study — the English. Since that time the former lines of work have been extended and new studies added until at present five thorough and comprehensive courses are maintained, any one of wliich g ' ives a thoroug h training- for the active duties of life or fits for admission to tlie State Universit3% the Normal Colleg " e, the AgTicultural Colleg-e. and the various denoininatioual coUeg ' es of the State. In 1S89 an application was made by the Board of Edu- cation, through the sui)erintendent, for a committee from the State University to visit the High School and examine its course of stud}-, equipment, streng th of teaching " force and so forth. After a thorough investig ation, the commit- tee reported the school as doing- - ' ork of a high character and that it was thoroug-hly prepared to enter into academic relation with the University. Since that time the Univer- sity relation has been continued so that g ' raduates from the High School have been admitted on their diplomas without the formality and annoyance of an entrance examination. The first class to g-raduate from the Hig-h School was the class of ls85, and consisted of five members. Since then two hundred seven have graduated from the va- rious courses. The record " wdiich the graduates have made in all departments of human endeavor in which they have engaged is a source of pride, not onlj to those who were responsible for their instruction but also to the citizens of the city whosogeneroush ' maintained the institution which sent them fortli The public .schools of Traverse City have played an important part in the material, social, intellectual and moral progress of the community, and it is hoi)ed that the high standard they have reached will be maintained in the coming years. " Religion, morality and knowledge being- necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encourag ' ed. " TrciN ' erse l e E.

' ' iSuch being- tlie case, there is nothing- sur jrising- in the fact that the Traverse City High School holds a very enviable po- sition among- the schools of the State Among the Alumni we have no State ' s prison convicts. We have, how ever, a few law 3 ' ers, editors, drummers and insurance agents. Ad- vancing up the scale, we have a few doctors, some merchants, several mechanics, a great many teachers, some farmers, a few ministers, a number of wTves and not a few " mothers. A ver} ' much alive Alumni Association is kept up, in which the honor of the Presidency is exceeded only by its expensiveness. An annual meeting is held in which the Alumni orator invariably speaks to a " crowded " ' though not a " full ' house. Old acquaintances are renew ed (to some extent) and old corns are trodden upon (to a very great extent). The class that has just completed the course think of how the school has improved since these old classes were graduated. The older graduates think, " How little these youngsters know " compared wdth those of us who were gfrad- uated in the good old da3 ' S when solid work was done! " The officers of the Alumni Association are at present as follows: — President, Parmius C. Gilbert: Vice-President, Stella Schneider: Secretary, Minnie Wait: Treasurer, Mrs. George W. C. Navarre. All members of the Association being so willing- to do all that is asked of them in the way of work, and pay all that is asked of them in the way of Alumni dues and assessments, the w ork of the officers of the Association is very simple and easy indeed. Fortune has been kind to those who liave finished the work of the TitAVEUst: City High School. The world has a rifjht to ex])ect more from a • ' ■raduate than from one who has not had that advantage. It does exi)ect more and is not disaitpoinled. Few indeed are there of our number wlio do not occupy responsible, honorable i)Ositions in the world. Here one in the ;;aze of the public is dointi " a man ' s work and g-ettin«r a man ' s reward. Risking all for the right, g-aining- all by the right, another has thrown himself into the breach where wrong seems on the point of conquering right. Hard tighting brings many scars, but scars received in the cause of rig " ht are nobler decorations than an ' rank or medal con- ferred by roN ' alty. Here in quiet seclusion the mother in the home is moulding the 3 ' oung life intrusted to her into the image of God, to remain to all eternity — glorious. In the little country schoolhouse the teacher is doing a work compared with which the building of the ])yramids is a sim- ' p e task — building character that will endure when the p -ramids are worn away by the drifting sands blown by the desert wind. From the sacred desk another pleads for higher character, purer thought, nobler aspirations, god- like life. The death angel has not entirely passed over us. Some, in the glow of young life and the Hush of youthful hopes and ambitions, have gone to the other countr}-, where call ever so loudly, they can never answer us till we too pass the border land: till the gate so dark on this side, swings open and jiermits us to ])ass through, where all is light and life. Who can say that those who have gone on before are not the most highly favored of all y What great work of broader usefulness they may now be engaged in — ah I who can tell f Then here ' s to the alumni. May we ever honor our old school, and ourselves, our country and our God. And as the years drift us. farther and farther apart, may we. each in his own place, be doing work that is worth doing.

This inspired a great many of the young men of the town, several of whom were members of the High School, to organize a local military company. They met with very little success at first but a few months later a rousing- meeting was held at which time new officers were elected whose experience and enthusiasm i redicted a bright and prosperous future. After some consideration the company was named the Hannah Rifles, in honor of its benefactor, Hon. Perry Hannah. Little did any one think that these boys would ever see service, and mucli less be called to foreign soil to fight for the liberty of the oppressed. But when a call came, only a week after the destruction of the Maine, the patriotism of every American heart was stirred to its depths and soon the Hannah Rifles mustered for active dut Preparations for departure were hurriedly C()m])leted as Saturday evening came to a close, for on the following- Monday, May 12. they were to leave. " The Sabbath dawned with a strang-e unrest and hurrying to and fro. " Mothers and sisters were busy over the last loving service thev could render for how long — no one knew. Never be- fore did a ])atriotic song- sound so nearly like mockery as when the words, " Sweet land of liberty " " were sung. After a sleepless niglit the town arose at the sound of the lon ;- continuous blast of whistles, to say liood-bye to her soldier boys. The streets were soon crowded with thronii ' s passing- hurriedh ' to the depot to join the hundreds alread ' waiting " . There were brief and broken farew ' ells — at length the mo- ment of i artiug — then the train pulled slow] 3? out and our soldier bo s were gone, leaving- behind them thousands of anxious hearts, true as the stars of heaven though clouded b ' the sadness of the hour. That which did most to bring the realit} ' home to us as students and classmates, was our return to the school room where were the seats vacated by the bo s Avho had enlisted. With the memories which these thoughts brought to life, tears came unbidden and words remained unspoken — the language of the heart held full sway. When (Commencement night came all were saddened to see the central chair draped with the Nation ' s colors in honor of Amil Xerlinger, the president of the class. The gallant Compan}- M bo3 ' s were hurried on from place to place, at length reaching- Newport News. There the} " embarked on the auxiliary cruiser, Harvard, and landed on Cuban soil the first da} " of July. From that time the real hardships of war were experienced to the full. Within a few hours after landing ' , preparations were com- pleted and a march begun to the front along the muddy Cuban trail, which tried the strength and endurance of the strong-est, 3 et only three Comjian} M bo3 s fell b} " the wa3 — one never to reg ' ain his regiment. At the break of day the tired troops of the 34th got within sight of Santiago just as the battle was renewed, and for the first time the bo3 ' S saw and heard a real battle. They were placed in re- serve immediateh " . Soon Com])anv M was selected to hold oiu ' of llif most (hiMiitToiis i)()sts before Santiag ' o, and well (lid they perform their trust. ♦ » At the news of the home-comintr of the boj ' s the dark cloud that had hovered over all so lonjij " beg " an to scatter. Every ])ossible means of welcome was carried out. At last after the crowd had waited until four o ' clock in the morn- inir the train rolled in amid continuous shouts of welcome. Hut what a sad sig " ht. Youngs men of the Hig h School who went away erect in form and vigorous in health, came back bent from hardships and their systems saturated with ma- laria. Although not fulh ' recovered from the Cuban fevers, all returned to complete their High School work with the ex- ception of Eugfene Hargraves, John Scott and Will Roberts. Man ' of the boys were unable to enter at the first of the term. With the help and encouragement of teachers, to- gether with their own persistent efforts, Don Morgan, Ro- land Houghton and Verlin Thomas were enabled to gradu- ate with the class of ' 99. The two remaining .soldier boys of the High School, Robert Walter and Will Nash, graduate with the ])resent class of 1900, which is very proud of the fact that two of its members are real soldiers and helped in no small degree to bring libertv to the Cubans.

ALL the ovcninii- we had been studyinjj- and i)lanning- how to write the history of tlie Nauglity Naughts. Had they any liistoryy Ask them and we could learn nothing-. What were we todo ' r Wr had thougiit of this, we had thoug ht of that, we had contrived, studied and wondered, and at length in des])air had given up. We decided to tell this best and worst class that they must look elsewhere for the historians. Our minds were not broad or deep enough to look back nor even to make them look back and tell us what to write. The tire in the old tire-place had nearly died out while we sat pondering- it over. The bed of coals was bright -et, here and there sending " forth a spark. Suddenly a number of these s])arks seemed to take life, and there, before ' us, stood a band of tiny men, sprites we might call them. They wore long- black robes with Howing- sleeves and on their heads were tiny mortar-board caps. One seemed to be the leader. He held in his hand a wand and looked very wise and dig-- nified as he stood before us. This little fellow seemed to be in deep thoug-ht and did not notice that we were jiresent until a sudden flash of the lamj) attracted his attention toward the table where we sat. He seeinetl startled at first and stepped toward his band as if in defence, but after a moment he turned and said — " Good evening-; what are 3 ' ou thinking- about ' : " " Neither of us answered. He stood a moment gazing- intently and appeared as if reading- our very thoug-hts. Suddenly lifting his wand became a little nearer and sai l, " .Mi. T have it, vou are entleavoring- to trace the histor ' of the class of 1900 in the Traverse City Schools. I, and my band, will lend you our aid providing- you will solemnly promise not to reveal to a living " soul where you obtained the information. " " We took the oath gladly. Pol- lowing is the histor ' as he told it: " I shall take you back but twelve years, when the class hrst began to seek the knowledge so essential to success in life. It was the first day of school in the year 1888 when twelve of the present class were assembled in the first grade room. As it was necessary for the teacher to know their names and ages, .she called each one to the desk. First came a bare-footed, chubby little boy from the back seat. Upon being asked his name be replied, ' Edgar Keith, but my mother calls me Eddie. ' ' How old are you ' ? ' ' Six years old. " ' Now take 3 ' our seat Edgar. ' Next went forward one dressed in blue, with strii)ed stockings and very little white hair. She gave her name as Mamie Despres, and while in the first grade it was a common occurrence for her to sit on the dunce ' s stool. As soon as Mamie was seated, without any request, up s jrang ' little Bertie Montague, who appeared very anxiotis that the teacher should know his name. He was quite a large boy, eight years of ag ' e, and verj neatly dres.sed. Seated across the aisle from him were two boys who belong to the race that is noted for its money making, Joe and Hiram Russky. Hiram started to go to the front, but being timid he turned and taking- Joe by the sleeve they moved forward very slowl} and bashfull5 •• The teacher was now interrupted by a knock at the door. On opening it, she espied a boy holding a little girl bv the hand. He said she was his sister Florence Thompson and that she was old enough to come to school. Florence was given a seat but soon began to a brave little boy, Freddie Smith by name, offered to take her home. Fred was always a good boy and the teacher knew by his face that she could trust him. He is still trusted as is proven bv the little heart that he wears on his watch chain. The Nauiiiity Xauiiiits exi)re.ssed a like faith in him when they made him business managfer of the Traversensian. " As the door shut behind him a sob was heard from Edna Holdsworth. On being- asked what was the ' matter, she said ' Joe Ehrenberi, er is pulling " my hair. " That nig ht the teacher made Joe stay after school. Having g iven him a box of slate pencils to sharpen, she fastened the door and told him the janitor would let him out when his task was completed. Joe sharpened three pencils then opened the window, climbed throug h and ran home. ••There are now left five other children, Edna Murrell, f rankie Novotn} ' , Eva Thacker, Flora Caldwell and Edith Hastings. From this time on Edna Murrell was f)unished repeatedly for her jDcrsistent whispering. But time makes great changes, and now she is the artist and j roj het of the class. Frank ' s characteristic fault was tardiness, but he has long since outgrown this childish failing. Eva Thacker was a fat little girl, and on account of this, during the heat of the summer, it was deemed necessar}- for her to have her hair clipped. Flora was a freckled faced little child, whose controlling passion was a love for mischief. This she has never outgrown. Edith alwa3 ' s liked the bo3 ' s. It was then no trouble— nor is it yet — for her to secure someeas} ' means of getting to and from school. " The latter part of the week added the last child who has attended the Traverse City Schools twelve consecutive years. A tall lady brought her. She bad long golden hair, blue eyes and red cheeks. Do you know herV Her name is Nellie Grant. " The second ' ear passed oft " very smoothl}-, with the exception that a number were compelled to be absent on account of having the measles. ' ' On the Monday morning " which opened the spring term of the third 3 ' ear, Frank Walton was added to the class. He wore leather boots, pants neither long nor short, and his hair was uncombed. But under this uni)romising exterior there was a fine intellect, and Frank soon showed marked ability in number work and has developed into an excellent mathematician. " The sixteenth member of the class was Georg-e Chase, a slim, slow moving- lad, who was very irregular in his at- tendance at school, and it is said often remained avvay with- out good reason. As in childhood, he now thinks slowl} talks slowl} ' , walks slowly, and ujjon good authority it is stated that when he calls upon a young lady friend he is very slow about leaving- her. " The next year Will Snushall and Frances Catt ' rey joined your band. Will was good in athletics and this won for him many boy friends, and the fact that his picture may now be seen among the football eleven shows that he has fulfilled the promise of his 3 ' outh. Frances, when very young, thought she could reach heaven and so one day started. She claims to dislike the oj posite sex, and also says that she is the youngest in the class, but we sprites know some things. " In the sixth grade, Winifred Fuller, a very sweet little girl came among you. She has always been a favorite with the teachers because of her good scholarshiiD. This accounts for her being salutatorian, she having been excelled bv one onl}? , Florence Thompson, the valedictorian. Winifred ' s love is in the junior class. A boy ' r No, not this time: but a girl and the two are inseparable. " About Christmas time Lucile Theobald first put in her ap])earance. She was then a quiet, dignified girl, which ma} ' account for her intense love for study, Lucile enjoys household duties, is a ver}- good cook, sews neatly and doesn ' t object to washing dishes, a fact which the boys should heed. " The members of the class had now reached the age when they should have put away childish thoughts and actions, and attained unto the stature of men and women, but it was not to be so. An explanation of this is found in the fact that one was now to join you whose princi])le of life was ' lie a child as lonjj;- as you can. ' James Milliard " Wilson Hubbell, called Hillie for short, joined the class the year before entering ' tlie Hi.iih School. At ])resent he is very much interested in a certain liol den -haired, rosy-cheeked " • " irl. whom the s])rites all hn ' e. " At this time Fred Daj o, a timid lad wearing- a home- si)un suit, also came amonjLf you. That he was then so bash- ful that words seemed to choke him will be a .surprise to those who heard him re]iresent ' Gobbo ' when the En 4lisb Literature class studied ' The Merchant of Venice. " " When the class entered the High School it was joined by four others, Calista Dunbar, Will H. Nash, Robert Wal- ter, and David .Tickling. Calista Dunbar, whom the boys thoug " ht as i)retty as a doll, can boast that she has never been reproved b} ' a Hig ' h School teacher. Will H. Xash will always be distinguished by his characteristic Roman nose and jolly disposition. Of all his subjects he enjoys history most, and while serving " in the army was called ' Historical Nash. ' Robert W alter, your president, who was aLso a soldier boy, is hif hly esteemed, especially by one whose name ' Ou know. She has dark brown hair and eyes and many, many messages have I carried to her in the years g one by. No class can boast of as tine a cook among its male members as can the Naughty Naughts. David Jickling- has won this enviable reputation, and has proven his skill by the cakes, pies and oyster stews which you have enjoyed at your social gatherings. The same indomitable energy and perseverance which characterized him while learning to cook he has carried into his school work, witii ery sat- isfactory results. " The second High School year, Maud Robertson, a quiet, modest girl, was classified witii you. She has always studied diligentl} ' and as a result her record is one of the best. At the time when the Naughty Naughts ran away from school Maud objected at first, and said she would not s o unless all were excused, but when the day came she re- jjented and went. " At the opening ' of the Junior 3 ' ear, Moses Gilbert and Marion Pratt entered the class. Moses received his name from Moses in the bull-rushes, and who dare say there is no connection between this and the fact that he will never pass or read even a business note during " school hours. We sj rites know that he is bashful, but even this may be a blessing- in disg ' uise. That it has proven such to him is shown by his tine scholarship. Marion Pratt is a tall, dig " nified and de- cidedly independent young " w oman, yet one whose winsome- ness has won her many friends. She, as editor-in-chief of the Traversensian has spared no time or labor in making " it a success. " In the last semester of the Senior year, there was added to your number yet one more. Alma Oviatt. The class has not yet become acquainted W ' ith her, but we know her as a kind-hearted girl and an excellent student. " I have now completed the history of the thirty-one members composing " the Naug " hty Naughts. As a class, it has been troublesome, but if it be true that mischievous children win the heart most readily 3M)ur place is assured. In one thing " your class stands unrivalled by the records of previous 3 ' ' ears, — 3 ou count among " 3 ' our number more boys than g ' irls, the proportion being " sixteen to fifteen. " With a wish that I and my band may be of service to you in the future, I bid you adieu. " " And before we were able to tlianlc them the " disapi)eared from whence they came. Ck 155 Orel Hon. BERT MONTAGUE. TWO THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED years a o, when Nahum wrote of chariots resembling torches, which would run throu,yh the highways like lightning ' and with terrible collisions, he may have prophesied the locomotive; but earlier still, by nearly a thousand years, Job inquires if the lightnings cannot be sent to convey intelligence. Three millenials pass away, and Morse proves that they can. The prophec} ' of the bible is not only fulfilled but has been so enlarged and added to, that besides the transmis- sion of intelligence from shore to shore and from continent to continent, at a rate which encircles the globe seven times per second, great enterprises depending uj on these light- nings now furnish the means of support to over 1,000, OUO people. From the time of Adam the} have waited for man and invited his inspection, but not before Thales had dis- covered the peculiar property ' which amber possessed, when rubbed with silk, was the subject presented to the world in a form to be developed into the science of all sciences. Like many other discoverers, he little knew what he had found nor dreamed what the outcome of his wonderful discovery would be, and man in his ignorance allowed the dark man- tle of mystery to enshroud it for nearly 2,000 years more, when another and greater thinker appears in the person of William Gilbert. He solved some of its mysteries and ren- dered it a science worthy of the study and deepest investi- gation by all the i)hilosophers of his time, and the time to come. Owing to its origin, he named it from a Greek word meanins - aml er, and henceforth we know it as electricity — tlie terror and yet the most obedient slave of man. Such is the birth of electrical science in the knowledij;-e of the world. Another 300 years is employed to prepare it for the future. During- this time such men as Davy, Faraday, Gal- vaui, Volta, Ohm, Ampere, DuFay, Oersted, Coulomb, and Franklin, have discovered certain laws and investigated its properties with the result that galvanic electricity, magneto electricity, electro mag ' netism, thermo electricity, and in- duced electricity, are produced and form the foundation of our present advancement. To the tireless research of these men we are indebted for what we now know. Through their efforts we are privileged to enjoj the advantages of elec- tricity. In forcing its way to the front, electricity has had to contend with opposition hard to overcome, in the form of 13ublic opinion, caused by the deep mj stery, in some cases almost amounting to superstition, with which it was first introduced into the world, together with the knowledge that the} ' had next to no knowledge concerning its nature, but once overcome, this opposition has only served to make its position firmer and now to many people anything electrical is a possibility. The year 1876 is known to us as a time when the nations of the world sent to Philadeli)hia specimens of their handi- work to be exhibited as the best representative of their ad- vancement along- the lines of art and culture. Of the vast multitudes that thronged to that place, a very small part perhaps noticed a department where various electrical nov- elties were exhibited. Less than twenty 3 ' ears later another and a greater exhibition is held at Chicago, and this time the nations assemble to witness the development which these two decades had produced. Wonderful is the change.

It once took weeks and months to send messages an} ' great distance, but the telegraph made it possible to send them in an instant, later to send sevent3 ' -two mes- sages at once over the same wire, and finally telegraphy was carried on without wires. Our ancestors used torches. lamps and candles to supi)ly light, but now the arc and in- candescent lights take up the sun ' s work, and there are 10,0(H) electric lighting plants in our country to supply the current. If the dynamo and motor were the onh ' products that electricity had given us we would be greatly indebted to it, for in these is realized the aim of the engineers to tran.sfer and transform energy with little loss tog " ether with great power and small space to be occupied. The dynamo runs the motor and the motor runs anything from the den- tist ' s little drill to the heaviest factor} ' machinery. There are automobiles projjelled by steam and automobiles pro- pelled by gas, but they are all slow compared with the electrical variety, as was well demonstrated in the ]Sew York races. Unfortunately the medicinal powers of elec- tricity have been exaggerated, but slowly some of these ex- aggerations are becoming truths. and so successful that Mr. Crotte in New York, in dealing with consumption b} ' elec- tricity lias curccl all the cases in the first stag " e that lie has tried, seventy live per cent, of those in the second stag " e, and thirt} per cent, of those in the third stage or hopeless cases. Not lon - ago the whole world was interested in another discovery which, besides being useful to science in general, was particularly so to surger3 Thales or Gilbert could not have dreamed of taking photographs of the inte- rior organs of the bod} ' , but Roentgen made it possible and opened up a new held of investigation. To enumerate all the uses of electricity would require a long time, even if we left out heating, cooking, baking, frying, boiling, roasting, ironing, electrolysis, electrojjlating, electrotyping. mining, fusing ever3 thing, and welding iron, copper, nickel, steel, annealing armor plate, production of carborundum (nearly as hard as diamond), fire alarms, burglar, clock, water, heat and all kinds of alarms, railway " , marine, army and navy signaling, regulators, torpedoes and search lights. These we could leave out, but we would not leave out the tele- phone, the pride of electricity, for in it we see one of the seven wonders of the world and the beauty of science. Such wonders as these have become common to the pub- lic, and it takes them as matters of fact. But the scientist demands an explanation and with this in view has for some time applied himself to the deepest investigation. First, it was believed that electricity was composed of two liuids, having positive and negative properties, but such serious objection arose to this theory and so com})lex did it liecome that for some time it was considered a myster}- too deep to fathom. While in this state of jierplexity, the molecular theory, the result of experiment after experiment and the theor} upon which light, heat and gravity also depend is developed and leads the scientist to believe that all space is i)ermeated with an idealh elastic and incomi)ressible Uuid called ether,so thin that it ])enetrates and circulates through the finest steel, glassor diamond. Also that all matter is com- posed of minute particles called molecules, so small that were a drop of water to be magnified to the size of the earth its molecules would be about as larg ' e as the ordiuary shot. Impossible as this may seem, let us remember that the mi- croscope, thouj ' -h far from powerful enoug " h to reveal these molecules, does disclose in the densest or smoothest object pores larg e enough for the movement of millions of molecules, and so b}- magnifying- farther and still farther we would finally find that there are no i)ores but that all matter is made up of these minute particles and that they are con- stantly moving- at a rate of from a few inches to 5,000 feet per second. Upon these two facts the theory is based that electricity is due to undulations or waves in the ether and the vibrating ' molecules in the grosser matter, each having- a direct relation to each other, that is, the vibrations cause the undulations and these in turn cause the vibration. So closely are the theories of lig ht and electricity connected that light is now known to be only a different form of the electrical phenomenon. If waves are produced in tins ether which vibrate at about 1,650,000,000,000,000 vibrations per second chemical effects are produced. If the rate is from 395 to 831 trillion vibrations j)er second light is noticed. Heat appears at 129 trillion and electricity at 100 million vibrations per second. Such results as these are the products of master minds of science, who for the last fort} ' 3 ' ears have been studying these phenomena, and as yet much of the exact nature is unknown, but the start has been made in the right direction and it is possible that the next fort} ' years will produce a complete solution, for as science advances and men advance in science and their knowledge broadens, once complicated matters reveal themselves in beautiful simplicity that indi- cates the planning- of a Master Mind, infinitely greater than ours. We see but dimly into nature ' s methods and under- stand less, but as our investigations into the mysteries of heaven and earth progress, God reveals to us their solution as our minds become prepared to receive it. We have seen why we may call this the dawn of the electrical age. Fads come and go, but when electricity came it came to .sta ' . It is not the result of a sinf -le century ' s preparation, but has required for its present development over two thousand six hundred years. We may imagine the future and g ' uess what it will produce, but here we must stoi?, and with the belief that nothing- has a brig ' hter future than electricit} while doing " our best to make it so, give to future generations the result of our labors to fulfill the prophecy that we are now living- in the beg inning- of a great and g-lorious age when electricity will take the i)lace of stone, bronze or iron.

IN ONE of the most familiar books of the land it is writ- ten that, " In those days there shall be prophets and false prophets. " " And behold those days are at hand, for b} ' uncontrollable events, even I, the weakest of the class, have been aj pointed to foretell the destiny of m} ' mates, and the wonders that shall surely come to i:)ass. So hear, O hear Ye, class of 1900, the joys and sorrows, the suc- cesses and failures of our future, as here set forth. For it shall come to pass in the days following- the graduation of the class, that the members thereof shall be scattered, as seeds caug-ht b} ' the four winds of the earth and blown thither and yon. And in the many chang es of time and 13eriods, you are each to have a ])art. For behold, I see before me man} ' islands, gToujied to- gether in the Pacific Ocean near the main coast of Asia. And on one of these islands there is a city, and flag " S float throughout like unto the flag- of America. At the outskirts of the town, are many tents, set in rows and at intervals are g " uns stacked up tog " ether. In one tent from which a flag floats, and ui)on which a sign bears the words " Gen- eral ' s Tent, " I see two men. They are seated at a table with maps and papers spread before them. And one is ar- rayed in uniform wliile the other wears citizen ' s dress. And the one in uniform is Moses Gilbert, and the other is " Wil- liam Nasi]. And Moses speaks thus, " One in the position of Governor General has great responsibilities and must deal with tlK-m carefully. " " " Yes, ' " sa5 ' S Will, " and regard- ing " those plans. I cannot decide now. I will think it over. Come to me to-morrow at three. ' " In another part of the cit} there is a church. The cross upon it shows that it is Catholic. Near b} is a large building- which is evidently a mission school, for many- children play round about. A figure of the i3riest in a long- black coat and three-cornered cap, comes out for a morning- walk, and I recognize him by his slow moving steps. It is none other than Geo. Chase. The bell now rings, and the children hasten indoors. Now I see them inside with hands folded, waiting for the teacher to open the exercises. And now as I look, Lucile Theobald says, " Let us begin the day b} ' singing ' America ' . " ' The Philippine scene is gone now, and lo. I see in its l lace. the coast of Alaska. It is Cape Nome, and the tide is out. Down at the edge of the water, as far as the eye can reach, are man} ' people all along the shore. They are not far apart, and each has a pan. The} ' are mining. Among the number I see the familiar figures of Mamie Des- pres, Calista Dunbar and Joe Ehrenburger. The tide be- gins to rise, and they to retreat. Each carries back a little sack of gold dust secured from the ocean during the day. And there is a hapj y look on their faces, as if they were satisfied with the reward of their hard day ' s labor. A change comes over the nature of the scene. A city at the head of a bay comes to my vision. As it grows clearer, I recognize it, for I have seen it before. There are many familiar objects. A large red court-house: a statue of a soldier on gaard near by, and a massive structure, which looks like the old Central, grown to an immense size. And there are many new things, strange new streets, new buildings, new parks. And running on the princii)al streets of the city, electric street cars. I see them plainly. They stop at a corner where several people get on, now they start once more. I see the inside. Fred Dago comes down the aisle in the dress of a conductor, and sa3 ' s. " Fare, please. " The car stops at the public square, and man} ' people alig ht and make their wa ' to an open place and wait. NoAv I hear in the distance the noise of a drum and the footfalls of marchinj - pilgTims. Tlien the sound of singing strikes my ear and I distinguish these words. " Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow? Are 3 ' ou washed in the blood of the Lamb? " " B3 ' this time the} ' are near and the banner which they carr} ' declares them to be the Salvation Arm} ' . They hold a meeting here in the square, and then Captain Francis Caffrey, says, " Lieu- tenant Caldwell will now pass among you and take up the evening offering. " Darkness falls on the city, and when it is again light, I find other things which I did not notice before. A great manufacturing " establishment attracts my attention. Upon the outer walls this sign is painted: " Improved Roentgen Ray Machine Works. " As the building comes nearer, I see a window whereon I read, Fred Smith. President: Joe Rus- sky. Director: Hiram Russky, Secretary. I now see the inside. Fred is explaining the invention to a visitor. He says: " Yes, they are widely used, Supt. Novotny has one in his office by which he measures the mental development of students. It is a great .success. It takes the place of examinations entirely. " As I glance about the city, I am attracted by bill-boards of brightly-colored pictures. There are ladies on horseback, jumping high fences, Japanese boys upon high ladders, and great cages of wild animals. At the top of these j ictures are the words: " Wilson Hubbeirs Great Railroad Shows. " Night comes and when daylight next appears, all the city dwells in quietness. In one of the most beautiful parts of the city is n immense tabernacle, the roof of which is in the form of a dome, and shines like silver. " Tis the da} of worship and hundreds of x eople enter, and become silent, waiting " for the hour of service. The organist appears fol- lowed b} ' the choir. Then the minister takes his place and announces the first hymn. While the hug ' e waves of music float out from the pipe org-an, I look at the minister and see in him our old friend Edg-ar Keith, yiy eyes next seek the choir, where the sw eet soprano voice of Nellie Grant has attracted my attention. She stands, as of old, with a far- away look in her eyes, and her voice made sympathetic throug " h sorrows, has wonderful power The church is gone and lo, a new scene is brought near, and I see a great city. ' Tis the capital of the Anglo- Saxon Alliance. In the midst of it are the large g ' overn- ment buildings. In the chief office of one of these, are seen, eagerly talking together, David Jickling and Vm. Snushall. And David is the greater of the two. He is the chief ruler of the Alliance. He is the Mikado. And under him, William has charge of the American division, and he is called the Tycoon. Another building nearby contains the greatest library in the world. It has in it hundreds of thousands of books. In a large armchair sits a figure rend- ing a newspaper. And ' tis the form of a lady. She has black hair. She seems familiar, yet I am not sure, she looks at the paper so closely I cannot see her face. The jjaper which interests her so much is entitled The Workr. C irixtian Chronicle, edited by Robert Walter. Now she seems to have finished reading. She looks up and I recognize the features of Alma Oviatt. She goes to a table and begins to write. Now I look about the room. On one side I find a case filled with books in a jiecaliar tan and brown binding. These are the titles of some: " Theor} of the Lost Art of Preserving the Attention of Children, ' ' " Science of Senti- ment in Condensed Form, ' " " Fountain of Peri)etual Youth discovered in use of Liquid Air. " And all these books have the words, " Oviatt Series, " on their covers. In another case, I see amoiiii " the poet ' s works, a shelf of books bound in blue and ••rey. Some are dramas, some lyrics, some epics, and Eva Thacker is their author. Gradually this scene fades from my vision, and I see before me " Tacoma the Beautiful. " Great grounds are here laid out, whereon many buildings are builded, and over the entrance to the grounds this sign is fixed, " World Fair, 19l!o. ' " Within are crowds of people looking at their for- eign brothers and at their displays. The buildings also are crowded, and much is to be seen. One great building is for exhibits of women, and many dainty articles are found therein. Among the exhibits is a collection of fine needle- work. This is greatly admired, not only by ladies, but by gentlemen, and none of it would they have seen had it not been for our old friend, Edith Hastings. This building is in charge of another of our schoolmates, Marion Pratt, who is assisted in her duties by Maud Robertson. In the Art Gallery, among the most beautiful of the famous pictures, I see an animal piece in which horses and dog ' s are conspicuous. The fame of this is greater than the fame of all others I And the artist ' s name, Florence Thompson, is passed from one to another of the spectators. The Sculpture Gallery next attracts me. I see in it man} fine statues. The most striking- piece here and the one which attracts the most attention was made by Wini- fred Fuller. And great is her fame therefrom. In another building are collected together the great in- ventions of the world. And here I do see much machinery. One little machine is of great value to medical science, as it is designed to give warning, when disease germs become too numerous. It has made the fame and fortune of Edna Holdsworth permanent. There is also a large invention on exhibition. It is a means of conveyance, which is to be used between the earth and the other planets. It has already made several sue- cessful trips to the moon and is called, " Montag " ue " s Un- limited Transit Propeller. " This scene vanishes and et in another part of the gTounds I behold the inside of an immense building. And man} ' people are therein, and a gTeat hush rests over them. And now a mighty voice speaks, and the people listen intently. And the speaker tells the people of their vices and crimes and proclaims to them the ruin of their child- ren, the destruction of their cities, and the downfall of this g ' reat nation, if they continue as they now live. He does say there is one thing- more than all others which is the cause, and which if removed, would benefit not onlj ' this countr} but the whole world. He speaks with a powerful voice, and the people are sore afraid and do tremble, ahd fear to breathe. " What is the cause of all this misery ' ? " sa5 ' s the speaker. " Liquor and nothing- but liquor. Fath- ers, if you would save your boys, help the city, and prevent the destruction of your countrj-, put down the liquor. " I stared spellbound. I can scarceh ' believe that great strong voice proceeds from that slim little man in whom I have for some time recog nized the features of Prank Walton. And now, verily, verily, O ye class of 1900, know ye that these many changes that have been portrayed to my vision are to be your future experiences. And I do hereby prophec} ' , that you shall each attend to 3 ' our separate call- ings, singly and without a helpmate. And althoug " h the walls of the Central School Building may crumble and decay, and the waters of Grand Traverse Bay be dried up, 3 ' our futures are herewith foreseen or I am a false prophet.

WK HAIL the day that marks for us another vicfry won: The sweet reward of years of toil, of tasks and lessons done: But while we feel the thrill of joy, regrets will ming-le still, And hearts with deep emotion swell, and eyes with tears o ' erfill. For we must sever tender ties, must part with friends grown dear, And leave the scenes we ' ve learned to love with every passing ' ear. No more for us the clang ' ing ' bell may sound its summons loud: No more o ' er desk and problem deep our aching ' heads be bowed: But life holds problems deeper still than anj- we have met, And lessons harder far to learn than we have mastered yet. The way is long and steep and roug " h that leads up to the stars — But who would be a conqueror and wear no battle scars ' i Let courage then our hearts inspire — chase tears and gloom awa ' . Let youth and hope and joy have sway on this our festal da} ' . We ' ll pledge once more a brimming health to friends and teachers dear, And to our Alma Mater give one loud and rousing cheer.

WE, THE SENIOR CLASS of the Hig-h School of the city of Traverse City, county of Grand Traverse and State of Michig-an, mindful of the uncertainties of class life, do make, publish and declare, this, our last will and testament, in manner following " , That is to say, — After the payment of our just debts and funeral charg ' es, we g ' ive, devise and bequeath all of our property, both real and j ersonal, as follows: First. We g ' ive, devise and bequeath to our beloved sis- ter, the Junior Class, our name and the honor and dig " nity which come of its possession. Second. To said sister do we also bequeath, unreserv- edly, the rig-ht to publish an " Annual, " thus honoring " the school, and preserving " her name and record for ag ' es to come. Third. To Junior, and Junior onl} , we g " ive the cher- ished right of absenting " herself from school, a half day next winter, for the purpose of taking " a ride to the Bing " - ham schoolhouse, or to any other schoolhouse she ma}- wish to visit. Fourth. Mindful of past narrow escapes from untimely death m the mad rush for seats on the first da} ' of school, ■we bequeath to our young " est sister, 1903, a number of life preservers, now in charg " e of Mr. Curtis. Fifth. We, furthermore, bequeath to the dignified Se- niors, to be, the back row of seats in the assembly room, on condition that they be never known to whisper, pass notes, or eat pie in school. Sixth. Believing " that our other sister wishes to carr} on the good work we have commenced, we give to 1902, a roll of crepe paper and some brass-headed tacks to be used in adorning the mantel in the assembly room. 1902 maj also replace the old, faded green ribbon on mantel drape, with a new one. Seventh. The future chemistr} ' class is entitled to all t est-tube racks and broken test-tubes found in the vicinity of the laboratory. Said class is also authorized to cause explosions whenever it wishes to. Eighth. F N wills to Mr. Cobb, the right to choose some one, each year, who will, without hesitation, fill the sodium bottle with water. Ninth. F C regretting that she must so soon leave laboratory-chemical and enter laborator kitch- enical, bequeaths to L M , her laboratory desk with the black marks on the ceiling above it. Tenth. H R , about to become a magician, bequeaths to C N , the privilege of sitting on the front seat during an entertainment at which Karl Ger- main will appear, and assisting the magician in deceiving the public by concealing a rabbit inside his coat during the performance — this being the first lesson necessary in study- ing " the magician ' s art. Eleventh. R , W reluctantl}- wills to the president of the future Senior Class, the rig " ht to open any dinner boxes which may be found in rooms where class meetings are held — especialh ' boxes found in room 4 — and to feed fried-cakes found in such boxes to the class while in session. Twelfth. M G , B M , M R .F T ,C D ,G C....- and J R , beginning to feel the advance of age, now that they are about to leave school, will to the High School students, fond of jilajing in school, their share in the ownership of the Senior portion of the school play- gTOund: — said portion is namely: — S. E. and S. E. i of N. E. i Sec. 6, Central School gTounds. Thirteenth. The base ball and foot-ball bo3 ' S of our class, relinquish all claim to the hig ' hly-prized laurel wreaths won in games last year, said wreaths to be found in a burglar tire and moth-proof box which is locked in a draw of the case near Room 3. Fourteenth. To the Honorable, the President, and members of the School Board, of the City of Traverse City, we giadh ' bequeath the right to close the city schools on the 2 ' 2d of February, in this way implanting in 3 outliful hearts a patriotic spirit. Fifteenth. To the benevolent and far-seeing person or persons, who first conceived the brilliant idea of making a park of the Central School grounds, we bequeath our re- served seats on the woodpile for viewing said park, also the ladders used in climbing to said seats. Sixteenth. To certain members of the noble and gen- erous Alumni we will a copy of Flsop ' s Fables, — on condi- tion that the} " read the fable entitled " The Fox and the Stork.- ' Finally. We commend to the care of the Faculty, the Juniors, hoping that said Juniors will follow the example of their departing sister and live in peace with the Faculty, the School Board, the Alumni and mankind in g eneral. In witness whereof we set our hand and seal, this, the first day of April, A. D., 1900. Class of 1900. Signed, published and declared by the said class of 1900 to be her last will and testament, in the presence of us who have signed our names at her request, as witnesses in her presence and in the })resence of each other. -,xr..

PARENTS, schoolmates, friends, we bid you welcome. There are few words more beautiful, few more cher- ished, 3 ' et Ave greet you to-night with a full realization of its deepest, truest meaning. We are glad you are here, glad because we know 3 ' ou are interested in us and we give ' OU most cordial welcome. We have sought earnestly for fitting words with which to greet you, yet found none so fraught with meaning as the one word, welcome. What then is its messaged What the hidden depth of our greeting? We sought diligently, and at length there appeared encircling it the beautiful words, welcome every one. Still not satisfied, we looked within and there found its character meaning. We bring you earn- est welcome, loyal, loving welcome, a cheer} ' welcome would we bring-. Again our welcome is outlasting as the stars, and yet it is a modest welcome. We give ' ou earnest wel- come. We stand to-night on the threshold. Behind lie our school days, the period when the C(jurse of our li es ran smoothly; when thoughtful, loving ' care was given to our development, when all the rough places were made smooth. But now the world of active life opens before us, and each must put forth earnest effort if he would win. Our school days have, in some measure, not only prepared us to live, but the} ' have shown us what life really is. Their training has made us feel that life is real. And so while we stand for a moment on the threshold, looking- back with reluctant g ' aze and then forward with clear, hopeful giance, we pause to give 3 ' ou earnest welcome. And, ag-ain, with hearts overflowing " with gratitude toward you who have done so much for us we give you loyal, loving welcome. You have been our helpers and have given us encouragement. When, perhaps, we would have fallen you have inspired us with new energy and cheered us on. Our ideals are hig " h, because j ' ou have inspired them, and have shown us only the good and noble in life. You have seen that notwithstanding our many imperfections, there was that within us which, when fulh ' developed, would make a strong, noble character. It is said that when Sos- tratus, the sculptor, had completed the famous watch-tower of Pharse, in Egypt, that he carved his name on the wall of it. This he covered with cement and to please the king he engraved the monarch ' s name on the cement. The storm dashed and beat against it, the cement crumbled and the king ' s name faded: but the name of Sostratus, the sculjitor, shone out clear and bright, for it was carved in the im])er- ishable rock. Thus have we allowed little faults and weak- nesses to hide the impress of the Divine. But you have been the agents who have labored with true courage and patience to remove all blemishes in order that the im]irint of the Divine Architect might shine forth clear and bright. " We can uever repa} 3 ou, yet we trust that the hjyal, loving " welcome that we bring ma} ' express in some measure the depth of our gratitude. Then, too, we bring a welcome of good cheer. We would feel almost despondent at the thought of separating from all the old associations, of leaving- behind our school days, if it were not that the future invites us to broader, higher duties. We dismiss the jo3 ' Ous past, but look forward hopefully. We have worked with sincerity and tried to accomplish all the tasks assigned us, that Ave might be the better fitted for the gTeat work of the future. We are not fully equipped for life ' s work, yet the years spent in the school room have developed our abilities and shown us that the strength which lies hidden within will come forth when necessity requires. The demand for workers is great and we stand read} ' to answer it. With so much beckoning to us. we cannot but make our greeting a cheery one. We would not give you a formal gTeeting but our wel- come is outlasting " as the stars. We no long " er think of you as men and wo men apart from our lives, with duties and pursuits in which we cannot join. The time has come when we are one with you, when all our sympathies and aims be- come one with yours. Our welcome to-night bring " s to a close the period of preparation and oj ens the door to the broad, active life of the future. We have been fitting our- selves for this, and now we must enter. To-morrow Ave shall become a part of the great, busy AA ' orld, in Avhich you liA ' e. And so our Avelcome reaches out into the future, and yet it is a modest Avelcome. The knoAvledge that the Avhole world has opened before us does not make us feel elated and over-confident. When we see the heig " hts to which some have climbed, and the g " reat deeds that haA e been accomp- lished, we are humbled and made to realize how much still lies in tlie future. We feel in some measure equipped for life, and yet when Ave try to imagine all that might be at- tained, all the great possibilities for us to make realities, our preparation seems but to have awakened us to a con- ception of how great the world is and how small our present attainments. Our fund of knowledg-e seems great now, but when we think of all the learning and wisdom of the ages, we realize that we have made onl ' a beginning, have laid only the foundation of a broad education. The thought that the whole world lies before us and that our opportunities are boundless gives to our salutation a greater depth of meaning and makes the welcome that the class of 1900 ex- tend to von a true one. N ' cileclictoru. FLOREXCE THOMPSON. GOOD-BY carries with it the idea of sadness; but to-night I desire to give you a newer, a more joyous interpreta- tion. What then does the word good-by mean? Webster defines it as the act of taking leave. Instead of its mean- ing the leaving of all that is good and beautiful and dear to our hearts, let it mean the opening of a door through which one may pass leaving behind all that is mean and ignoble, and reaching forward to a grander, nobler life. Can it be done ? Nations and individuals have made it a threshold to better things. One need not look far to find instances of this. When the English people, through the Commons, denied the divine right of kings, and rose in revolution, they made good-by to tyranny the threshold to justice and freedom. The American colonies said " Taxation without representa- tion is Tyranny. ' ' Then rising against their mother-land, and declaring that all men are created equal, they threw off the yoke of opj ression. Look at our late Civil War. By a great river of blood, our land was cleansed from the dark blot of slaver3 During- the first part of the sixteenth century, Leo X, Pope of Rome, found himself in need of money to carry on his various undertakinos. Accordingly he made a grant of indulg-ences. x bout this time Martin Luther became convinced that the entire system of eccle- siastical penances and indulg " ences was wrong. So when the indulgences were brought into Germany, Luther drew up ninety-five theses, or articles, in which he stated his views resx ecting them. These theses were at first nailed to the church door at Wittenburg, then scattered by the press throughout all Europe. As he grew bolder, he attacked other teachings of the Roman Catholic church. The entire continent was aroused. The Pope issued a bull against Luther, declaring him a heretic, if he did not recant within sixty days. In reph Luther publicly burned the papal bull. B} this act he said g " ood-b " to the power of Papacy and welcome to the freedom of worship. To-night we stand on the threshold. Behind lie both failure and success. In what have we failed y In many things besides recitations and examinations. " VYe have all failed in developing perfect character. Bad habits have been formed: the cultivation of g ' ood habits neglected. Yet this should not discourage us, because we have suc- ceeded in man} ' things. With the help of teachers and friends, we have strengthened our character and g-rown into a broader more useful life. But saying good-by to all our failures, can we not, with the strength we have gained, like the chambered nautilus, form for ourselves upon our former life a character which is far beyond anything we have yet attained. How beautiful an illustration of this has been given us by our own poet, Holmes, in ' " The Chambered Nautilus ' " : Year after year beheld the silent toil That spread his lustrous coil: Still, ai the spiral grew. It left the past year ' s dwellinff for the new: Stole with soft step its shining archway throug-h, Built up its idle door. Stretched in his last found home, and knew the old no more. Thanks for the heavenly messag ' e broug ht by thee. Child of the wandering- sea, Cast from her lai forlorn ! From thy dead lips a clearer note is born Than ever Triton blue from wreathed horn I While on my ear it ring ' s, Througfh the deep caves of thoug-ht I hear a voice that sing ' s: — Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul, As the swift seasons roll ! Leave thy low-vaulted past I Let each new temple, nobler than the last. Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast. " Till thou at leng th art free. Leavings thine outgrown shell by life ' s unresting " sea I May we not take this to ourselves " : ' The character of each is yet lacking " in some thing " . It may be in honest} or in courage, in self-control or in loyalt} ' to duty. A charac- ter, to be complete, should possess all these. Such an one is worth more than rubies or diamonds. It is priceless to its possessor. Even if one lacks natural genius or a fine in- tellect, or if he is slow of speech and hesitating in the choice of words, yet if he has a strong character, he will succeed in the end. The i)ower of his influence will be great wherever he goes. One essential element in such a character is honesty, not only in word but also in deed Little reliance can be placed upon a person who is not honest. In the business world this is especially noticeable. Although he who car- ries on his work in this way, may find it difficult to get a start, yet if he has the necessary pluck, he will gain slowly but surely until he stands in the first rank. He who is dis- honest often ain.s wealth very (luickl}-, but just as often he loses it as quickly. Even if he is able to keep it, yet he never enjoys it with that peace of mind with which an hon- est man does his rightly earned possessions. " Honesty is the best jiolic ' ' is an old but truthful maxim. It has been tried b} ' many and has alwa3 s i)roven true. The most re- nowned men in the history of the United States have often been quoted as instance of this. From this trait of char- acter, one Avith w hom you are all familiar, received in his 3 ' outh a nickname which not only clung- to him throughout life, but one which is connected with his name at the pres- time, — Honest Abe Lincoln. Whoever is really what he seems to be, always wins a place for himself. But it ta es courage " to walk honestly in the sight of all men, " and also for many other things. It is often ver} hard to do what is right, when one can see something easier near by. But ever} victory strengthens one and makes the next task lighter. Courage is needed to break dowm bad habits and to form good ones. The courageous " No, " has many times saved a man from falling- under the tyrannical power of some bad habit. But the person who has the courage to stand for what he knows is right, in the face of opposition or mocking has a powerful influence over others. Before the Civil War, William Lloyd Garrison, the editor of The Liber- ator, was one wiio dared to stand for the freedom of the slave in spite of bitter oj position and even persecution. These things show how necessary to a good character are honest} ' and courag ' e. And to these let us add self-control. For as some one has said, " self-control is the root of all the virtues. " It is a hard thing to g " ain and difficult to keep, but is of great value to its possessor. Perfect self-control means a constant guard over thoughts, words, and deeds. He who thinks of nothing but that which is pure, never says anything wrong or unkind, and never does anything wiiich he knows to be wrong in the sight of God, has learned i)erfect self-control. Althoujih few, if ain ' , ever reach this ideal standard, yet all may strive for it. According to the Book of Books. " He tiiat is slow to an ier is better than the mi,u;hty: and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. " " Every step taken toward this goal is one more step in the building of a good character. But there is still another point, without which every character is incomplete. Loj alt} ' to dut} ' . How much meaning there is in those three words I Few there are who have not sacrificed .something for this, and many have given up leisure, happiness, wealth, friends, home, and even life itself for dutj- ' s sake. Washington gave up the comforts and retirement of his home-life again and again, because he thought it his duty to serve his country. One ' s dut} ' must be determined by his conscience and carried out by his will. He who does this is not a reed swayed by every chang- ing current, but a rock to which weaker ones cling for sup- jjort. Trul} ' the abiding sense of duty is the very crown of character. We thus, in part at least, see what each character should possess. Honesty, courage, self control, and a sense of duty are essentials. These combined with a trust in God, will go to form a beautiful character. Classmates, we must say good-by to-night. But to whaty Instead of sa ' ing good-by to the good things behind, can we not make it a good-by to failures and low ideals, and a welcome to a stronger character, a nobler, g " rander life. Teachers, we wdsh to thank ' ou for your earnest work in our behalf, for your sympathy and help at all times. O, do not say good-by to us, but rather welcome us into a closer union, a higher life. We shall still need guidance and advice. Will you not help us to perfect our characters, that we may become strong and earnest men and women ' 1 Classmates, shall I say good-by t No. Rather let me say welcome. Welcome to more earnest endeavors, higher ideals, stronger characters, and into a grander, nobler life.

The members of the class, looking far, far back into the past year, when tlie ' were members of the eighth grade, remembered all the trials of that early period: and philosophizing that those early struggles were only so many foundation stones in the tower of their future characters, they set themselves to work on the lessons of the day with very commendable diligence. Sophomore year for the class saw the ranks thinned a little, the membership being reduced to seventy-live. The majority of the members were pursuing " either Engdish or Scientific courses. As the classes in recitation work became smaller more and better work was done and g ' reater satis- faction given to all. Aiming to maintain the standard of the tenth grade work, the class continued the Junior Lyceum, which had been organized by the Sophomores of the previous year. The programs of the Lyceum were modeled after those of the Senior Ljxeum of the High School. No doubt many a Lincoln in debate or a Patrick Henry in oratory will, in the future, date the birth of his great powers from the day on which he g ave a three or five minutes talk from the rostrum of the old High School room. The results of the good work done by this Lyceum are shown by the strong work of the Juniors in the Senior Lyceum during this year. From the ranks of the Juniors comes one who, if not the first, has no superior in the debates which take place in the HiL;li Soliool litV ' . He easily won tir l place aiiioii!

Out of the seventy five Sophomores forty -five or six students take u]) Junior work. Many students must remain out of school this year to earn the money that we hope will brini - them back next year. These students have been missed both by their classmates and their instructors. The Junior class met and formally org anized near the middle of the year. Chas. Salsbery was elected president of the class; Lottie Nash, Secretary; Wayne Waters, Treas- urer. We, as a class, have followed the example set b}- the last two Junior classes, of i ivin.y ' a reception to the Seniors and the Hi.uh School teachers. This has come to be one of the pleasing " features of our Commencement time. We as a class are proud of our girls. Very much of the best work of the High School is done by the young ladies. Committee work, in the social life of the school, is done to a great extent b} them, because they know so well " how to do things " and " the boys are so stupid ' you know. Boys always are w hen there is work to be done. In the literary work as well, our girls are leaders. We hope that very few of the class will find out, at the time of the final examinations, how terril)ly Ihey may be suffering from that old, old affliction, sore eyes; for w e want to see ever} ' Junior coming back next September, wearing a hat like those the Seniors sui)port, a number nine. May the fates ])e proi)itious to us, one and all. When the new year shall have arrived, may we be permitted to assemble once again at the call of the old school Ijell and carrj for- ward the labors of the final year to a i)leasing and credita- ble close.

IN THE northern part of Michi ran, at the head of the ' beautiful Grand Traverse Ba -, is situated the thrivinii- little city of Traverse City with its man} mills, churches and schools, the latter of which are uoted far and near, as the instructors faithfulh strive to do their dutj ' to the hun- dreds of children who are to be the future men and women of our countr3 But it is not of our scliool as a whole that I would write but of a class of eig ' hty or more who g ' raduated from the eigiith g-rade in eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, and who at this writing are about to finish the tenth grade. As they entered the high school the} ' felt that they were starting out upon a new era of life ' s work, and that they must be more thoughtful, more studious and more dignified if the } ' were to be enrolled as students of the High School. But. alas for human nature, when the students are young and full of life, the novelty soon wears off, and although this class meant no disrespect to their teachers, they were soon the same fun-loving " , mischievous set that they were in the eighth grade. Although the teachers were as patient as teachers usually are, I fear they were often puzzled to know what to do with such a set of unruly young people. But remembering the old adage " Satan finds some mischief still for idle hands to do, ' ■ they rose to the occasion arid said, " we must give them more to do, we will organize them. " ' At this time we had our Junior Lyceum with its music recitations, and debates, but as our numbers were so many each individual was callcil 111)011 so seldom tli at we still had much time upon our hands. Therefore, November I ' l, l UU, a meetinfi " was called and class officers elected. At one of our meetings in order that our future members of Con , ' -ress mi.uht be drilled in i)arliamentar3 ' forms and usa«, ' -es, a mock senate was formed and the " Honorable members from the dilferent States discussed and voted u])on the leading- ques- tions of the day in a manner worthy of the augfust assem- blag-e. " At another meeting; committees were apj ointed to select the class yell, motto, colors and flower. The colors chosen were green and white: the white symbolizing- the purity of our friendship both for our teachers and class- mates; the green, the freshness in which these memories will be held. The class flow er chosen was the beautiful Lily of the Valley. As the yell is a necessary adjunct of every class we chose the following-. Hi, He: Ho, He: Hi. He: Who Were the class, of 1902-; ' Here we are as may be seen. With our colors white and green. Rah. Rah, Rah. Zip. Ba. Boo. Hurrah for the class of 1902. Last, but not least, was the class motto, which must be .something- to incite us to better work and till us with a desire to overcome all obstacles, and to reach a high stand- ard of excellence. Realizing; that even after g-raduation, we shall only be starting- on life ' s journey, we chose for our motto, " Not Finished. Just Begun. " ' We trust by keeping- this in constant view we may in time reach that point of excellence where we will be not only an honor to ourselves but a benefit to all those with whom we may associate, and that when we reach life ' s close we may say Not Finished, but just i)repared to enter upon the new life Just Begfun. rivshiiuin CIcixs llWori), ALBERT KYSKLKA. MMEDIATELY after the si)ring- vacation, the ' eiji-hth iirade pupils bei " an to learn the songs and the individual parts which were to be given at the eighth grade com- mencement exercises. After the promotion exercises we had three long " months in which to prepare for entering " the High School. When school opened in September seventy live pupils from the eig " hth grades of the cit} ' , tog " ether with about twenty from the country districts, entered the ninth grade. The new pu nls had more or less difficulty the first few days in finding " the way through the halls, locating " the class rooms and getting " accustomed to the new surroundings. One of the difficult questions for the individuals of the class to settle was the selection of a course of study. Of the one hundred members about one-third chose the Eng " lish course, while the others were about equally distributed in the Latin, Scientific and Commercial courses. The majority of the class have continued in school through the year. Sickness has compelled some of the members to drop out. Death has entered our ranks once during the year taking from our midst Nellie Parrant, who had won the friendship of all during her short stay in school. We have had no class organization thus far, but when the Editors of the Annual asked for our cooperation we gladly contributed a i)icture of our class. Many interesting " experiences have come to us during " the year. It seemed very strciiiL;e to us to hear the rinulng- of the electric bell at the close of a class hour. The lony periods of forty five minutes for study and recitation, also so many teachers in the course of the same day. were stran ' e experiences ton-: l)ut in a montli or so we became accus- tomed to our new surroundins s and felt quite at home. As the tirst year of our Hiiih School experience draws to a close we be i ' in to realize how little we know and how much there is to learn. l5o(nxl ot liclitors, 1. Marion Pratt, 2.

No radical changes have been made in any of the manuscripts, except a few insignificant cor- rections attecting the form l)Ut not the sense. The spirit of good as well as revolution is contagious, and that spirit of independence has impelled us toward a complete emancipation, from the past, and it is hoped that such independ- ence is a])])reciated by the students and people of this city, and that encouragement will be given to the life of Tiiic Tk.wicksicx- siAN for future years. The Editors wish to thank all who assisted in any way in making the Traversensian a success ; especially those persons out- side of the school who contributed articles ; the teachers who ren- dered valual)le assistance in correcting manuscript : the business men who advertised so liberally, and the artists who furnished drawings. 7 PicfurcN LliTTII-: K. MAKMN. r was a pleasant afternocjii in June in the year i ;25. and I fdund myself enjoying the time in a famous art gallery of a western city. Hour after hour passed rapidly by, and I was beginning to think of gt ng iKMue, intending to return another day. when my attention was drawn toward a book of sketches that lay on a table near l)y. 1 thought I would stop and glance at it. but on reading the title I was forced to stay, my interest being too great to leave, for the book bore the title, " Traverse Citv High School, 1896-1900. " Turning to a lady standing near l)v I asked if she could tell me how this book of sketches came to be there. " Oh. yes, " she said, " those sketches were drawn by the artist, Edna Murrel. shortly after her graduation from that High school. Of course, after she became famous, some of her earlv sketches were collected, and these High school scenes were among the rest. The sketches are very interesting even to one who knows nothing of the school, but if you ever attended school there you can judge of the accuracy of the drawings. " The sketches were splendid and true to life as I remembered school. Evidently the artist had tried to picture some of the inci- dents of her four years of High school life, and she had succeeded admirably. The first scene was of the school-house ; a large white building in the center of a square, surrounded by tall, stately trees. I could not but think of the tall, pleasant but solemn-faced man whose word was law in that small realm. Yes, there was his picture. As I gazed at it. instead of thinking, as I should, of the success he had achieved and the help and inspiration his life had been to so many, my mind travelled back to the manv, manv times he hafl warned us, " there must be no more snow-balling on the school grounds " ; or that " the rules in regard to the basement must be enforced. " P.ut he left for other and broader fields of labor and another ruled in his place. Xot a stranger, tho " . but he who for years had been the Great High Priest of the High School, and whose law was as unchan. iiii;- as thai of the Mecles and Persians. There he was in a i)ioiure entitled, " " The first day in the High school. " ' How well I renienihered my first day in the High school. The hell finally tolled the hour of nine, and with fear and trem- bling-, we " f resides " inarched into chapel. There on the platform sat a small, black-eyed man apparently wt)ndering just how good we were. First came singing and prayer ; then our new curiosity rose to his feet, and repeated those words with which we became so familiar in after years. ' •Girls come up single file on the right side of die stairs. " ' " I ' here must be no whispering in the halls between the first and last ringing of the bell. " " .Xo one must speak or leave the room without permission. " " The following books are due in the library. " or " The following persons please see the librarian in regard to books. " The next scene was of the library. Along one side were shelves filled with books, and tables were scattered around the room. Ah, many remembrances fiashed through my mind. There we used to gather for " good times, " but they were stolen pleasures. It seemed but a day since the small but dignified principal tip- toed up to the door and requested that certain persons leave the room. It is needless to say they went. But to come back to the picture. Several of the pupils were gathered around the tables and sitting on the ledge. One of them was apparently in the act of throwing a note, but was transfixed by the horrified look of the principal, who stood in the doorway. How his presence always impressed us with a feeling of " studiousness " when he said. " All those not doing strictly library work, leave the room. " ' hen the small, black-eyed principal assumed chief control another had to be procured to fill the place he had vacated, and at last the right man was found. He, too, was not a stranger, but simply one promoted from the ranks. There were two pic- tures of him. Xttmber one was as he appeared before becoming principal — the first morning he came back to school after his mar- riage and the boys showered him with rice. Underneath the pic- ture was written, " When a man marries his troubles begin. " Num- ber two was of a later date, for undcriK ' atli it was written the words, " Prof. Ryder makes his maiden speech, " and the date " 1900. " It must have referred to the speech in which he re- cjuested the jnipils of the High school that they meet " him • " iialf way. " The next picture puzzled me. There was nothing written underneath it. and what it was I could not imagine. It showed a group of gav. young people surrounding some one who seemed to l)e the center of attraction. Then it dawned upon me : it was the popular teacher of history and literature, at one of her many surprise parties. The next picture was of a class in penmanship. The teacher had just put a copy on the Iward, and from personal recollections of the class, 1 had no doubt she was saying. " Students, attention. We will now take a few minutes ' practice in ovals. 1-2-3-4-5-6- 7-8.- The next scene was drawn by a master hand. It was a class in Latin: underneath was written, " Drawn shortly after the monthly examination. The teacher had just said, ' Now, where ' s your excuse. Jimmie? Examination is just over and some of you have only passed 25%. Back in first Latin is where you belong. You lack self-appreciation. I ' m sure I can ' t see wdiat ails this class. I hate to scold all the time, but you must do better. ' The next picture was of an Algebra class, presided over by a pleasant-faced lady who. by her own example, taught us to be thoughtful and accurate. I almost fancied I could hear her saying. " Now there are some little children in this class who should study articles 151 to 155. " Long ago she won our respect, and I hope we were worthy of hers. Xext came a characteristic picture of a young professor who used to hold forth in numl)er six. He instructed his pupils upon the subjects of higher mathematics, and oftimes from across the halls these w ords. in thundering accents, smote my ears : Please rise, please, and expand out this equation. " On the next page was a picture of a Junior Geometry class, underneath which was written. " Xow. class, there are seventy Tiiore theorems and just thirty more days; tliat, taking five days out for tests, makes three theorems a day, and no time for review, and the class must finish them or I can ' t pass you. Is that clear? " The next was a picture of a dapper Httle man who instructed the pupils in the manufacture of " parlor matches. " How many were the times f had seen him rush into the high school room, his head down, his necktie awry, his coat-tail flapping, and jab fero- ciously at the electric bell which had refused to call us, with its familiar jingle, from the miseries of a dry recitation hotu Mean- while the black-eyed professor stood in the back part of the room with a look on his face that seemed to say, " Thou canst not say I did it ; never shake thy locks at me. " Following this was a pictiu ' e of a class in ntiml)er five. The teacher sat looking severely over her glasses at the class. Under- neath the picture was written, " Admonition, " and she surely must have been saying, " On this examination, Quality not Otiantity will count. " Xext was a picture of a timid-looking little lady, who came late in the year to battle ith the terrors of Ninth and Tenth English. The poet must certainly have meant her when he said, " Her voice was ever soft, gentle and low ; an excellent thing in woman. " Her kindlv nattire was shown in the fact that she wished to take some of her salary and buy an old gray horse, for which she felt sorry, a week ' s vacation. However, at times she could rise to the occasion and expel bad boys from the room with a severity one would hardly expect from so modest a person. After partially reading a lessc n she would say, " Each one will please learn these lines for himself. " On the last page was a sketch of a sweet girl graduate, the date ] Iay 30, 1900. and these words: " Look not mournftilly upon the past. It is gone — it comes not back. Employ the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the future with a glad heart and without fear. " The Lil)rcirij. ONE of the pleasing- features of the Traverse City High School is its library, well lighted and pleasant in all its appointments. In 1884 the nucleus of the i)resent library consisted of less than lift - volumes, now our shelves are filled with more tlian twelve hundred volumes. Previous to 1893 books w ' ere added as funds were appropriated by the Board of Education for that purpose. At that time the High School Lecture Course was established, and since then the profits derived from this source have been used in the purchase of books. An average of seventy- five dollars a year has been expended in this way, and thus the lil)rary has grown until it has reached its present proportions. It is well supplied with books for research work along the various lines of study taught in our schools. Foremost among these are books on literature, history, science, language, both ancient and modern, civics, pedagogics, biography and books of general information. There is also a good supply of encyclo- pcedias and l)ooks of " ready reference. " Our standard writers, both English and American, are well represented, the entire w ' orks of most of them being in the library. Magazines, bound and unbound, are found on its shelves. For the current year the Outlook, Foruiii, North American Re- view, Cos)nopolit(ui, McCIurc, Success, U eck ' s Current, and Tiuielx Toffies are the periodicals taken b - the students.

Have you a hair-pin, or a button-hook? That is all that is necessary, and we are now inside of a room known as the lab- oratory. It is very much like the dens of the ancient Egyptian alchemists, with whom the science of using crucibles and alembics of calcining, subliming and distilling originated. Six small windows admit of a few slanting ravs of sunlight. It has, indeed, a dark, spectral appearance. Listen ! A strange sound comes from that dustv, dingv, ill-kept desk : " Many masters have been stationed behind me to deal out the secrets of natural philosophy. I have seen things of strange character occur. One master once tried to fill this long iron pipe with water by using this small beaker, but his continued efforts were fruitless. He thought it possessed with an evil spirit, notwithstanding the stu- dent ' s feet were soaked with the water that issued from an aper- ture in the lower portion of the pipe. Another master of more dignified type once came, but found no eager seekers after truth awaiting liim. He rushed frantically back to seek his students, but nowhere were they to be found. Seized with alarm, thinking they had been captured by spirits of the air, at last, disheartened, he returned and found them seated calmly in their places. " That soup-plate has a strange tale to tell : " Once some fairy- like maids used me that they might boil some syrup to the j ropei constituency for tatty. They put me over a bunsen flame, and just as I was on the ])oint of being- t )reed violently ui) var l and iM ' oken into a trillion pieces they snrrountled nie with a magic circle and, with their sweet, zephyr breaths, extinguished the mischief-making " tiame. " In that corner at your left is the ever revered cobra-like hood — col)ra-like l)ecause of the man}- hissing sounds issued there- from. This table seems to have something important to say: ■ " One by one I have had difTferent proprietors. Some have kept me scrupulousl}- clean, others have left me disgracefullv untidy. J was once the scene of what narrowly escaped being a terrible tragedy. My mistress was very frightened over a slight explo- sion : some of the poisonous chemicals got into her mouth and pains were distinctl}- felt. Confusion, visions of hacks, doctors and nurses were before me : l)ut all danger was averted by an antidote, and that same mistress lived to be implicated in the instigation and ])erpetuation of a crime that nearly caused the death of a noted professor. He came into the room and found the skeleton of a human being dressed and placarded as an affec- tionate valentine. " This drawer that 1 possess has been the receptacle of con- fections, pop-corn. nuts, fruit, and so f(_)rth. " I see you are deeply interested in that door yonder. We did not enter there. That leads to the ventilating shaft. V. W. Rascal and G. B. Greatdaret once sent fumes of H2S from here to a crowded lecture room above. I understand that they were mterviewed.

Footnotes — ' iM and Woolly, f reat I Jig. The Lcihorciforij. THE collection of apparatus and material for science work has been growing " steadily each }ear. This is the result of the liberality of the Board of I ' .ducation and the etiorts of the various science teachers and the superintendents. The collection has been enlarged by construction of parts oi apparatus by the students and many C( ntnbu.tion . The recent contributors are Sara Chase, J. I. Loudon, and Walton (iray. As the result of these forces, the school is in possession of two well lighted and well equipped laboratories and material for work in Botany, Geology and Physiology. The i)h sical appan-.tus is sufficient for demonstrafional and individual work in mechan- ism, heat, electricity, sound and light. The apparatus for elec- tricitv is especiallv good, while the dark room enables one to study and appreciate the phenomena of light. The chemical laboratory is supplied with water, gas, i6 desks for individual work and the ordinary accessories. The student spends much time in this as well as in the physical laboratory where he is brought face to face with conditions he must vary and control. He must use his hands and be responsible for the touch. This age is a scientific one and in order to keep apace with the new developments, the iiccih of the laboratory must receive care- ful attention. ] Iany pieces for exact physical work, a larger sup- p y of chemicals, more care of rooms and a special room for l)Otanical work are some of the needs. The Alumni can assist much in enlarging our material by contributions and taking an active interest in this department.

IX sending out the first annual from the Traverse City High School, it was thought well by the editors to obtain the opinion of former graduates in regard to such a publication. That all the classes might be represented, a letter was sent to one member of each. Xo answers were received from some, while answers from others came too late to be published. But those that were received were of much encouragement to the editors, and we trust they voice the sentiment of the majority of the Alumni. I received a card from you asking my opinion of the publica- tion the High School is about to issue. It affords me great pleas- ure to say I am in hearty sympathy with the move, and I will en- deavor at all times to give you such assistance as I can. Such a work will be of great help to the students and interest them in their t)rk. I wish you success. ' ery truly }ours, W. H. Foster, ' 85. I feel sure that 1 am vi:)icing the sentiments of the Class of 86 when I assure you of my interest in the publication of ' ' The Traversensian. " We are all proud of the high place accorded the T. C. schools among the schools of the state, and the publication of a class annual is but another instance of the enterprise and energy of her students. Success to the class of ' 00 in their efforts ! Mabel Bates, ' 86. In regard to your intending to get out an annual, I should think it was a good idea, indeed. Many schools not half the size of yours get out annuals, and it certainly is all right for you to do so. I am sure you can get up a good one. ' i: liing you success with this work. I remain. Yours truly, T. A. CoxLOX, ' 87. Replying to your inquiry of the 24th inst., 1 wish to say that I approve most heartily of the pul)lieation of the Annual as pro- posed by your class. It is a step that should have been taken iiere long ago, and 1 promise you every encotiragement within my limited efforts to give. Wishing you and } ' our colleagues success, I remain, Y(Hn-s truly, P. C. GiLUERT, ' 89. In reply to your request, i will say that i believe that our undertaking in publishing an annual is a very praisew orthy one, as it means much perseverance and enterprise. If it prove a suc- cess, as I feel assured it will, it will be a pleasant feature to look forward to each year at Commencement time. Wishing you all success, Minnie B. Wait, ' 93. Any plan that has for its oliject the deepening of interest in the Traverse City High School has, 1 assure you, the best wdshes of the class of ' 94. That the present class is editing an annual is indicative of the push and enterprise that does honor to the school. Yours truly, Edith AI. Gibbs, ' 94. To the Class of Nineteen Hundred : As a member of the class of ninety-five, I congratulate vou upon the energy and progressiveness displayed in the preparation and publishing of an annual. Sincerely your friend, Roi ' .v Di:ax Holds worth, 95. Life gives nothing to mortals without great lal or. Xo more fitting legacy than an annual could be chosen by a class as the crowning eft ' ort of their four years " work. It should be a treasure of thought and inspiration for every person who has an - ambi- tion for success. It cannot fail to l)e fruitful of higli aims and exalted character, and will undoubtedly stimulate many a vouth 8 tt) seek laUor in llic broader ticld of learning. In heartily indors- ing the efforts of the class of 1900, 1 feel that 1 voice the senti- ment of those interested in the advancement of education. Yours very truly, A. F. Nerlixger, ' 98. In the name of the class of 99, greetings and congratula- tions. The fame of our younger brothers and sisters has spread abroad in the land, and finally has come back to the ears of us at home. No longer shall they be without honor in their own country : we recognize their talent and ability, and do most heart- ily congratulate them. We know — we knew — if our Dear dignitaries undertook any- thing, it must be a success, and we are not disappointed. Best wishes to the Xaughty-Xaughts.

WHILE the early days here have a fascinating interest for the rising generation, and the log school-house seems to them a nucleus from which evolved the present fine and commodi- ous school-buildings, to me it is mere matter-of-fact. The day- came and went, long, pleasant, but often weary ones, because our great variety of text-books — no two being alike — made proper classification so difftcult that time of teachers and pupils was wasted daily. Fortunately for me, I could look back to the old stone school-house in ' ermont and recall that it was simply " study of facts " that we wanted, and we must obtain those facts as well as we could. I had been a pupil in many schools, favorably located for educational advantages, thus learning by my own experience the advantage of plain study which does not extort from nerve force, over the " red-tape " and " entertaining " ' methods then being introduced into many schools to increase their popu- larity. So we reconciled ourselves as best we could to our disad- vantages. The second summer of my teaching was becoming interesting to me. because the scholars were older and more numerous, when sickness interfered and the school had to be closed. The woods ere too dense and unknown for us to venture into, so the children ' s play-ground was between the school-house and the river. We seldom saw a passer-by. Once I heard yells and hurried hoof-beats. A company of Indians, returning from a hunt, appeared with their ponies loaded with accoutrements, swam the river near the present ( i. R. I. R. R. l)ridge. and gal- loped at full speed up Squaw Point till out of sight. (Mrs.) Hrlkx R. HirciicorK. ' hile visiting my brother. Perry Hannah, in the spring of 1861, I taught school in the school-house where Park Place An- nex now stands. The seats were placed upon either side of the room, two rows on a side. No walks had yet been laid, and we walked to school through sand ankle deep, often stopping where the Mercantile Company ' s block now stands, to pick l)lue-berries or a spray of pretty wild roses. I made Julius Hannah his first pair of pants that spring. He was a wee bit of a laddie then, l)ut I am sure he has never felt as large since as he did the first day when, armed with his primer and clinging tight to my hand, he stepped inside the school-room. Little Johnny Rennie (now big Chief of Police Jack) was there, with the cleanest of aprons and faces ; his hair combed in a l)ig curl on the top of his head. One day three of my dear boys went otit never to return to the old school-room until they came in their coffins. Johnny and Tommy Green and Sedgewick Stevens — son of Gen. Stevens of Washington — thought to take a swim in the Boardman about op- posite the present " Cottage Home, " and the treacherous under- current of the stream held them d( )wn until life was extinct. Aly school closed shortly after that, and 1 went away to occupy a new home of my own. [Many years have passed since then, but the joys and sorrows of those few months have never been forgotten. (Mrs.) Belle Hannah Avers. The summer of i8C)2 will be remembered as one of the most exciting periods of the civil war, and Traverse City, though so far removed from the varying scenes of its activity, now and then felt the depression, and ueard the echoes of, the bitter strife. The depression would come when some of the young men sailed otit of the bay to join the defenders of the Cnion ; while the echoes of the conflict were heard at rather uncertain intervals, when the old propeller Alleghan - arrived at tlie li ck, or the weekly mail was distributed to the eager seekers of news. At this date in the historv of Traverse Citv, I taught school ill ilir Miiall (iiic-story sclii! )l-l)uil lins4-, one of tlic most j)re- tcntious structure the little hamlet possessed. The room was, small, but the play-ground surrounding it was not circimiscribed, it being simply " all of out-doors, " and certainly a healthy one, for it was dry white sand to the ri,L;ht and to the left, at the front and in the rear, broken only by an occasional huckleberry bush or by a spear of sorrel, here and there, with the one exception of a small sapling, which is now the large oak tree standing in front of Mrs. S. C. Moffat ' s residence. Good as my boys were, I dis- covered them robbing birds ' eggs from the little tree, it being so slender they could bend it almost to the ground. I wanted to impress upon my pupils the crime of l)rcaking up birds " nests, and told them I would punish any one who did it. Xot long after that. Arnold Adsit held up his hand, asking permission to speak, saying: " Anna Green broke birds ' eggs. " Now, the announce- ment was startling, for Anna (now jNIrs. Bert Hoxie) was one of my brightest and best pupils. Anna was asked to make her de- fense, and amidst tears and sobs she managed to say: " Arnold Adsit put the eggs in my hand and said, ' Squeeth ' em tight, Anna? ' And I squeethed ' em tight, and they broke, they did. ' The school-room was a cheerful one, and, though small, eas- ily accommodated all the pupils of Traverse City and the sparsely settled outskirts. I always recall tliat summer as one of the most satisfactory periods of m - school-teaching life. After an experi- ence of ten years, this was my last term in that line of work, and the consciousness of having accomplished nmch for my pupils was a source of great gratification. Almost without exception the material 1 had to work upon was excellent, and. with the younger ones especially, the advancement was rapid. They were interested in their work, and I remember one mother saying to me: " Aly boy comes home spelling, goes to bed spelling, and gets up spelling. " That boy has been for years a prominent business man in Traverse City. There was one temptation which then, as now. it was very hard for Traverse City boys to withstand. The waters of " the bav " and " the Boardman " were wondrouslv attractive on a summer ' s day. and more than once when a youni ster, coming " to the session late, was cinestioned as to the cause, the truth was badly mutilated, as 1 well knew, by the drii)[)ing locks and the sandy feet, and while I had sympath} ' for the l)oy (1 would like to have gone in swimming myself) 1 had also a sympathy for and a dut ' toward the parents, who were in a chronic state of alarm lest their children would tind a watery grave, and a duty toward the public as well, for a boy or two more or less made a very per- ceptible difference in the census returns at that date. The school house did duty as church and public hall, and occasionally collisions would arise, wdiich usually resulted in. the school having to vacate. I recall an experience in this line. An " appointment " had lieen " given out " at a Sunday service, stating that a meeting of ministers of the whole region would be held on a certain week-day afternoon at the school-house. I sought an interview with the director, and, in answer to my question, he replied with great emphasis, " Vou are not to dismiss the school. " That settled it. When the afternoon came, I told the pupils that in case any visitors should honor us with their presence, 1 hoped they would not be disturl)ed, but move right along precisely as though we Nvere in the habit of entertaining callers every day, at- tending strictly to business. At about two or half-past, a rever- erend gentleman from Northport arrived. There was an evident look of surprise on his face as he noted the situation. 1 received him cordially and proceeded to make him one of us by handing him, from time to time, a book, that he might note what the class on the recitation form was doing. As one by one the " brethren " came, they were treated in like manner. If the pui)ils had under- stood the situation they could not have done better. Their les- sons were perfect, and their studiousness and attention to business so impressive that one might almost have heard the proverbial pin drop. All the uneasiness evident was on the part of the " vis- itors. " Promptly at four o ' clock the session closed, after a few- remarks i)v the resident clergyman, which, at my reciuest. he could hardlv refuse to make. Just what " remarks " they made or felt like making, after, at last, havin " - the rouu to themselves, could only l)e imagined, but w u liad gotten in our half day of good work while the ministers looked on. (Mrs.) Esther Sprague Hatch. Tile schools of Traverse City are very dear to me. I look hack across the years, almost forty of them now, to the early spring (lavs of 1863. and see the one small school-house, its walls still fragrant with the scent of freshly-cut pine, standing knee deep in a tangle of brakes and l)ushes, the sweet pink and white arbutus growing close under its windows and an unbroken out- look from its doors across a stretch of yellow beach sand to the great blue bay, with its borders of hills on either side, forest-lined to the water ' s edge, clear to the horizon ' s line, miles and miles away. Within, the village schoolma ' am reigned supreme as super- intendent, principal, and full corps of teachers, from kindergarten to high school, with none to molest or make afraid. The bright- eved bovs and girls of those far away days are many of them gray-haired men and women now. And their children have fin- ished and are finishing their school days, as the old century ends and the new one begins. In all these years a loving interest has followed the evolution of our schools every step of the way, with pride in their achievement and their promise, and to-day as many times before. I say most earnestly, " (jod bless the schools of Traverse City. " (Mrs.) M. E. C ' Bates. AclverfLsinc) Solicitors. I. James H. V. Hubbell, Chairman 2. Nellie W. Grant 4. Luctle Theobald z.

The Senior Lyceum was organized at the beginning of the school year of 1893. It was first known as the High School Lyceum, l)ut when the organization of the Junior Lyceum took place, in 1897, it became necessary to change the name in order to distinguish the two societies. It has since been known as the Senior Lyceum. This society consists of the members of the eleventh and twelfth grades. The enrollment for the present year was about seventy-five members. The officers, consisting of President, Vice- President, and Secretary, are elected by the society semi-annually. The meetings are held in the High school assembly room on P riday evening of every two weeks. Each member has the priv- ilege of inviting one person ; this restriction being necessary that the room be not over-crowded. The general supervision of the society is imder the Faculty of the High School. Each teacher in turn has charge of a pro- gram, after the rendering of which he gives a criticism, pointing out the merits and demerits of the parts given. The programs are made up of musical selections, essays, re- productions, original stories, developments, orations and discus- sions ( n t()])ics of the day. During the second semester ' s work of " 93- ' 94, impromptus were introduced ; these are usually well treat- ed and are a source of much pleasure to all — the speaker excepted.

The Junior Lyceum was organized at the beginning of the school year of 1897. The work of the Senior Lyceum had always been hampered by the inexperience of its memliers in pub- lic speaking. As the older society included only the Seniors and Juniors, there was no opportunity for practice in this line until the third year of the High school course. To fulfill this long- felt ant. a society known as the Junior Lyceimi was organized from the members of the tenth grade. Each member of the society is expected to deliver two parts a year, the nature of which is determined by the Committee on Programs. The proceedings show all the order and dignity of parliamentarv usage, and the literar ' work is of the highest order indeed. The work of the Lyceum is of the utmost importance to the students, for, besides fostering his al)ility along literary lines, it enables him to stand l)efore an audience, of however great size, without experiencing what is commonly called stage-fright. am the rejircsentatlvc of a considerable number o |)eo| le.

A committee of three was appointed to make proper arrangements for the con- test ; later a preliminary debate was held for the purpose of choos- ing the debaters. This resulted in the selection of Moses Gilbert, Chas. Novak and Chas. Salsbery. ddie question for discussion was : Resolved, That the policy of the United States in the Phil- i])pines is justifiable. The Franklin Club took the affirmative. Wilson Hubbel, president of the Lyceum, presided and ad- dressed the audience, stating the nature of the debate, the con- ditions governing it, and introducing the judges and debaters. The debate was opened by Manistee. They argued that the pol- icy was justifial)le because it was constitutional and the Islands were legally acquired; that education, religion, commerce and all the things that tend to make the world better, would be intro- duced into the Islands by the United States ; and that the Amer- ican people favored the policy. Much of their argument was l)ased u])on the rej ort of the Philippine Commission. The Lyceum on the other hand maintained that every nation is justi- fied f()r fighting for its independence : that the case of the Phil- ippines was parallel to that of the American colonies in 1776; that education, religion and commerce could be introduced into the Islands without holding possession of them, as in the case of Ia])an : that it is not safe for a republic to enter upon a colonial policy a:ul carry on wars of con(|ucst. that the possession of the Philippines meant the entanglement of the United States in European politics, whrch would tend to make her a great military power and thus destroy the liberties of the American people ; and tliat the Philippine Commission being ai)pointed by the President would surely approve of his policy. In addition, many minor points w ' ere brought forth by both sides. According to the decision of the judges, which was based on argument only, the debate as a whole was given to Aianistee by a close mark of 21 to 19 points. Chas. Xovak was awarded first honor among the individual debaters, and Ray L. Swift second, the decision being based upon composition, argument and delivery. Although the Lyceum apparently lost the debate, yet, taking all things into consideration, it could hardly be called a defeat. The representatives had become thoroughly familiar with both sides of the question, having spent weeks in careful preparation, and were as a result prepared to meet the arguments used by their opponents. In short, they proved to the Manistee debaters that they were " foemen worthy of their steel. Chas. Salesbery, Chas.

Each season a large number of our citizens look forward to the numbers of the course with anticipations of pleasure and profit. The history of the course is brief. The first attempt to maintain a course under the auspices of the High School was made only seven years ago. The first course was the result of the etiforts of Supt. C T. Grawn and Prin. C. H. Horn. The remarkable increase in attendance from three hundred fifty sea- son tickets to eight hundred fifty is evidence of the high consid- eration with which the course has been held from year to year. Ft also has enabled the management to double the number of lec- tures and entertainments, and, at the same time, to bring the course within the reach of a larger number of our citizens by reducing the price of the tickets to a very low figure. Space does not permit an enumeration of all the able lectures and accomplished musicians and entertainers who have been brought to our city through the instrumentality n these c iurses, but only to make reference to the strongest and the most pleasnig ones, among whom are the following lecturers: Dr. A. A. Wil- lets. Dr. Dixon, Dr. Copeland, J. J. Lewis and Mr. Wendling, and entertainers, Ladies ' Military IJand, Ariel (Juartette, Sym ' phonv (Jrchestra and ]Miss Benfey. The supreme purpose in conducting the course has been to make it an educational factor in the community l)y supplement- mg the existing educational intluences of the city. The work of the public schools has thus Ijcen very stronglv reinforced. Our (iuiii; " people have been enal)le(l to hear elevating " and instructive lectures by strong thinkers of today. Their minds have been d.irected to the greater things of life. Their eyes have been ojjened to the larger sphere of human activities, and to the deeper significance of education. .Many a seed thought has been sown whose germination and fruition shall appear in the years yet to come. Tn the more mature, the courses have been profitable in manv ays. We have been entertained, but above all our thought has been stinuilated, our minds have been aroused. We. as a comnnuiil . have become more and more a])])reciative of the best which modern thought and ctilttu " e can bring to us. Each year the course, in addition to paying the expenses, has brt)ught a small profit. This profit has been expended upon the High School laboratories and library. For the latter about seventy-five dollars a year have been expended. This has in- creased the size of the library from about four hundred volumes to twelve hundred, and has enabled the lil)rary facilities to keep pace with the rapid growth of the High School attendance. We append the numbers of the course for the season 1899- T900: Lecture, " The Battle Cry of F ' reedom " — Rev. Thomas Dixon, Jr. Entertainment, " Les Aliseral)les, " Hugo — Miss Ida Benfey.

They have not been encouraged very much, and the relation between the High School Athletic Association and the base ball and foot ball •.earns is not definite enough. Athletics are not organized as the should be. The foot ball players organize in the fall and the base ball players in the spring, and each organization works for the interests of its own team alone. Of course they want the High School to win ; but under the circumstances the High School as such will not make athletics a success until they are thoroughly organized and conducted under one head. A good plan would be to effect an organization more permanent, with duties more clearly defined, and ask the Faculty to take an active part in the directorship. Sometimes students, becoming enthusiastic, neglect their work, but under wise direction all this could be remedied. Certain marks could be re(iuired, below which should a student fall through neglecting his work he could be cautioned and then removed from a team. Track athletics have never been attempted, though the High School has good material, as is shown by what students have done when they have gone from the High School to higher insti- tutions. High School records should be established equal to those of other high schools. Three or four years ago the High School was interested in a field day, in which the H. S. and Dockery ' s Business College " smashed " the Grand Rapids High School records, but a report of it was not available for the annual. With this exception the High School has never been interested in a field day. It was talked of this spring, but nothing was accomplished. Perhaps another year the High School can have a field day and invite a neighboring High School to compete with them. The students appreciate the help given by Superintendent Horn along the line of physical culture during the past vear. They hope that in the near future our High School mav be pro- vided with a gymnasium, where physical can be developed along with the mental and moral. The plea for a gymnasium is timelv. A PIcci for CI Civn Rcisiuin. rHE need of physical develoi)inent is one that is apt to be overlooked in an institution whose prime aim is the develop- ment of the mtellect. ' 1 he fact that too man i4 " radtiates of otir educational mstitutions are turnmg " out hoUow-cliested, pale-faced, round-shouldered }onng men and women is perhaps nacura4 enoUii " h, l)iu it is a fact none the less to be deplored, i he grad- uate of a iiigh school or college should represent tlie nesi pjssible development, not alone of the mental, but of the physical and moral natures as well. Of the agencies in schools that tend to physical development, few are entirely free from objectionaljle features. Some are, from their very nature, confined to one sex. Others must of necessity be confined to a very few individuals. Base ball can hardly fur- nish physical development for all the young men, and is of no physical profit to the young ladies, as they are debarred from the game, ' ihe same thing applies to foot ball, with this additional objection, that it is too hard on the bones and nniscles for many of the bovs in the school who need physical development the most. Of all the forms of physical training that are open to a high school, there is but one that is absolutely without objectionable feattires. This is the training to be obtained in a well equip])ed gymnasium. It may be of interest to note that an appropriation was once made by the school board, looking toward the arrangement of a gymnasium for the use of the pupils of the school. The plan was to prepare for ttse the room in the Central School building above the second floor. The appropriation was not a large one, being only $ioo, l)ut it would have served as a nucleus for larger things. It nuist always be a matter of regret that this appropri- ation, on account of the fact that the expenditures for that year went higher than was anticipated by the school board, was used for another purpose, and no start for a gymnasium was made at that time. It is certainly evident to all that the school now needs a gymnasium. Nothing elaborate need be done at first. The pupils of the school would be more than willing to put in such appar- attis as is actually needed at first, and the benefit that would accrue to the -oung men and women of the school wimld be almost incalculable. It remains iur the school Ijoard to see and appreciate this need, and make some appropriation to fit the room for use. This is all that would need to be done at first. )iher things could be added as opportunity offered. But the matter should certamly not be delayed another year. The physical needs of the pupils of the schools alony this line should no longer be disregarded. Le ' i T. Penxixgtox, ' 96. OrgcinizciriOR or the High School Athletic As ot icition THE FIRST FOOTBALL TEAM. PR IX. li()lv. having announced in Chapel, through request, that there would be a meeting for those interested in foot ball, No. 5 was ' given up for a session, which was called to order by Steven Lardie about 3:45 p. m. Sept. 30, ' 96. The meeting resulted in the organization of the High School Athletic Association, with the following officers : President — Walton L. Grey. ' ice-President — W ' m. A. Leighton. Secretary and Treasvirer — Robert Walter. A committee of five, including the president, were appointed to select players for a foot ball team. They were Steve Lardie, Herbert Johnston. Verlin Thomas and Ike Pennington. It was agreed that the team, when selected, should choose their own cap- tain by ballot. A manager was then talked of, and it was suggested that Prof. Beeman would make a good one. Prof. Beeman was then called for and invited to be in attendance. His appearance was applauded, and he stated that he " wanted to see a good team " and ' would help what he could. " It was then carried that if Prof. Beeman would accept the position he should be manager. This he did in a few remarks in the interest of the association. Through him a dressing rooiu was secured in the basement, the business men were approached regarding suits, and the team gotten under wav. Later a committee was a])]iointed to order suits, and a dozen were bought, sleeveless jackets having been decided upon. Sweat- ers were secured, a foot ball purchased, and the team was ready for practice, having in the meantime chosen ' alter Grey captain. Some idea of how much the boys knew of the game can be gathered from the fact that when McKenzie. I ' , of M., came up bv request to tell them about the game, he found it best to begin with what the richron is, how hiid out, etc.. then on the h(Kird to show the positic n of the teams and players, with names, and the o1)jects of the game. He then outhned a few i)lays, and the hoys went to work with a wih. Ike Fless, an instructor at the JJusiness CoUcge, was hired as coacher, and (Hd much to g ' et the boys in shape. On (Jet. 13 a meeting was called, and Manager ISceman read an offer from Cadillac High School to play them on their home grounds ( )ct. 24. It was accepted. Black and gold were chosen as High School colors, and at noon of that date the boys left on the ( i. R. cK: 1. for Cadillac, accompanied l)y Manager IJeeman and I ' rin. Horn. Speeches were given from the car steps by various members of the aggre- gation. There was singing, and the boys had a good time gen- erally on the way down. Cadillac was reached soon after noon, it is needless to say that the boys were a little nervous, it being their first game. The opposing team was sized up with a good deal if interest. The boys were determined to play hard. The team lined up about two o ' clock. The second pass Lardie went around the end for a touch- down ; but failed to " heel " when he came out across the goal line with the l)all and it was lost. This may be said to be a history of the game right through. The bo s ])layed good l all, especially for the first game. Imt they were not u]) on technical points. Prin- cipal Horn in speaking of the game before the High School the following Monday morning said that it made him think of the two fellows who went fishing — one wasn ' t very good at figuring but he could catch fish. When they came to " figure up, " however, the other fellow figured that most of the fish were his. The team was not discouraged though defeated. Idie score was 8 to 12. Upon their return home they practised hard and after Cadil- lac had defeated Manistee, Reed City and Ferris Industrial, and claimed the Hig h School championshi]) of northern lichigan. our team defeated them at 12th St. Park, 16 to 10, and Cadillac for- feited her claim to the championship. The ' 06 team made a fine showing for being the first High School team, and having to learn the game from its rudiments. Johnston and Lardie played fast halves, and everyl)ody kioked for alternate gains from them. With Xerlinger at center. Pen- nington, Leighton, Gane and ( iray made a strong line. ErI) at full played a good game, and ( iarner developed into a fine end. Thomas at quarter did not have a fumble to his credit diUMng the season. ' f)G roothall Team. 3. Prof., 14. Walton L. Grev 1.

PR( )I ABLV 97 had tlio best material for a team that it has ever been the High School ' s good fortune to possess. Tn- fortimately the first game, played with Cadillac, came early in the season before the team was in shape, and the High School lost. This seemed to discourage the team and they failed to show the interest manifested at fir. ' t, and did not report regularly for prac- tice. Individual playing could not make up for team work, and tliough the two succeeding games, played with Manistee High ScIkjoI. were close, we suffered two more defeats. The defeat administered by Cadillac was not taken so seriously when a little later that High School defeated the (irand Ra])ids City Team. The score of the game played witli Manistee on our home grounds was 6 to 4, and the return game resulted in their favor, the score being to to 6. The last game of the season was played at 12th St. Park on Thanksiii in_L;- Day with a city team, and resulted in favor of tlie High Scliool. Score, 6 to 4.

The game was played at Kalkaska. Supt. Luther ])laying full-back on the Kal- kaska team. Following is the write-up by a couple of those who went, which appeared in the Daily Eagle at that time : There were only a few streaks of gray light in the eastern sky Saturday morning when the boys of the second team began to gather for the trip to Kalkaska. Their hearts beat fast, for sunset w ould find them either vanquished or victors. About an hour after they had gathered Cadham and the veteran Lardie were seen approaching rapidly from the western horizon. The latter ' s well eye looked! rather sleepy. (There were others also who seemed to have but recently recovered from dreamland. ) The morning stillness was broken bv the yell — " lleaus, Fork, Oyster Stew, W ire. Briar, Rubber, Glue.

There were beautiful stretches of farm land and the autumn foliage gave a delightful tinge to the landscapes. The village was eagerly looked for. There were several false alarms but finally the court house and 1 ligh School building were seen and just before noon the party arrived at the village The boys, twenty-four in number, dis- cussed a fine meal at the Manning House, with all the vim of foot- ball ar liir.

Traverse by quick end playing and good line work advanced the ball within 10 yards of their opponents goal when Kalkaska made a plucky stand and the ball went to them on downs. P y snappy end ])laying they gained the center of the field when time was called. In the first 25 minute half neither side had scored. After a lO-minutc intermission time was again called. Trav- erse kicked ofif and the ball was downed on the 30-yard line. Kal- kaska tried to work the line but the Second Team stood firm and the ball w ent to them on downs. Traverse slow ly forced the Kal- kaska line back for a touchdown by Gane. ( )wing to the position of the ball he was unable to kick goal. Score, 4 to o in favor of Traverse High School. Kalkaska kicked ofif and Johnston made a big gain assisted by a strong interference. The teams struggled for supremacy in the center of the field. The ball changed sides several times on downs. Traverse being on Kalkaska ' s side of the gridiron when time was called. The game was won. Score, 4 to o. The teams were evenly matched and the game was closely contested. Traverse High School had a slight advantage in weight. Lardie and .Arnold alternated as referee and umpire. In ' .lu ' evening; a reception was tendered the players and visi- tors. The hoys had noticed some of the young ladies wearing hlack and gold during the afternoon. There were colors in pro- fusion at the game, and more than one snap shot made hy-the ever- present kodak fiend. The Traverse hoys seemed more than ever in leniand and some were afrai(i that a few of their members would he retained indefinitely after the reception was over. Mrs. Luther favored the company with a vocal solo and Supt. Luther resi)ondcd to the encore with words of welcome. Mr. Xerlinger in a few well chosen words, expressed the thanks of our hoys and the wish that a return game might he played and our boys enter- tain as well. Conversation and games caused the time to pass rapidly an ! after light refreshments had been served our boys left for their homes feeling that they had had a very pleasant time and that Kalkaska High School girls and their teachers were delight- ful entertainers. At the time appointed to leave for home, it seemed for a time that the suspicions in regard to the retention of some of our mem- bers were going to be confirmed. Xorthrup was the last one to arrive. His absent mindedness and frequent exclamations seemed to indicate a depth of impression not to be easily erased. In his short naps on the way home a fairy form seemed to float ever before his vision. There were others who enjoyed the same delightful hallucination. Our l)oys reached Traverse City in the wee small hours of the morning, hungry and sleepy : but with increased enthusiasm for the game as jilayed between educational institutions. The yell for a while will Ix — " W hat did we do to them? ' ho won? Traverse Citv four — Kalkaska none. " A. X. and R. W. The following Saturday. ( )ctober i6. 1897. Kalkaska was to play a return game. The girls of the High School invited the Kal- kaska girls to accom])any the team and arranged to give the visit- ing team and friends a reception in the High School Assembly room, which the Board of Education kindly placed at their dis- posal, ' [ " he day was rainy and the Kalkaska team did not come. The students and faculty met in the assembly room in the evening, however. The evening passed quickly away with singing and conversation, and will long be rememl)ered for all had such an enjoyable time with the teachers. They were young again. Prof, drawn entertained with sleight of hand and Prin. Horn helped to keej) the air full of notes from whole notes to si.xteenth and thirty- second notes, leading the students in singing old college songs. Refreshments were served.

Owing to financial difiiculties, no more regidar games were played on the home grounds. The only other game of the season was played at Manistee. It was the day of the Odd Fellows " -big celebration and the game was played before a large crowd. The Traverse City team played a good game in the field, Lar- die doing exceptionally well behind the bat, but they were defeated, 10 to 2, owing to their inability to do business w " ith the delivery of the Manistee pitcher.

Ridgely made another long gain around left end and was again slopped hy Langw(jrthy. Kalkaska then lost the hall on downs. Little gain was made b} the lligh School till Kalkaska made a gain of a yard and then fumbled. Snushall was on the ball in an instant, and the first half closed with the ball in the High School ' s possession near the center of the field, and no score made by either team. Kalkaska kicked olt in the secc nd half and stopped the run on the High School ' s 15-yard line. Snushall had no interference and was tackled for a big loss, and the ball went over to be lost immediately by Kalkaska on a fumble. Then began a series of fine line smashing by Snushall. Seven times in succession he struck the line, making a gain each time. Then Leighton was sent against the line twice for gains, when the ball was lost on a fumble. W a ver} " clever double pass (it worked for one anyway) from Kewis to Halcro, the ball was sent over the line for a touch- down, and Kalkaska went wild. The ball was brought out and Lewis kicked a goal in fine style, making the score 6 to o in favor of Kalkaska. Raft " kicked oft ' and Ridgely got the hall, but was stopped. On the next play the ball was lost on a fumble, and Raft ' got it. Snushall did some more fine line bucking, but the ball went over at last on downs, while very near to Kalkaska ' s goal, so near, in fact, that it looked as if this would be a touchdown. ' it!i 30 seconds to play, Kalkaska made a double pass, and Halcro again went around the end and started for our goal. But Maynard, who had been distinguishing himself all the game bv his line work, caught the fleet-footed little Kalkaska full back, and ihe play .stopped with the ball in Kalkaska ' s hands, and that High School a winner, 6 to o. ■Our new men had been tried, however, and the weakness in the team showed up. Steps were immediately taken to remdy this with what rsults the two succeeding games show. The c i Ciciinc ' r (ilUci K(i llkih xhool— Scoiw 22 ro 0. THEIR TEAM THOKOUUHLY DEFEATED. THE BLACK AND GOLD MORE TIL N EVER. A WEEK later, Kalkaska played us a return anie at 12th St. Park. Our boys worked hard to remedy defects showed up by the first game and lined up to wipe out the former defeat. This they did with scores to spare. Kalkaska High School had possession of the ball but four times, and not at any time did they make the required five yard gain. At one time on the last down thev had lost 10 yartls instead of gaining five. They got the l)all on downs but once. The visitors arrived on the 1:30 G. R. (K: I. All was ready for the game at 3 o ' clock and it was called without delay. Uean Lewis, Kalkaska ' s plucky little captain, and K. Halcro for the visi- tors played great football. They were in the game at every play. Other members of the team i)ut up good ball but their case was hopeless and they went down l)efore the Black an l (lold without a score to their credit. Our lint resisted all the attacks of Kalkaska with apparent ease. Every man on the team played good ball. Morgan at cen- ter opened up some large gaps for the backs to go through, and Raff at quarter put up his usual game. But Will Snushall, Tom Wilhelm, and Jack Slater especially distinguished themselves, each of them putting up fast, steady football. The team worked together and won the game. Xo player can play successfully without support — pro1jal)ly the one thing hardest for our High School teams to learn. In the first half, T. C. H. S. kicked the ball off and it was downed on the visitors ' 15-yard line. Three attempts resulted in a loss for Kalkaska and our High School took the ball. Five center plays in which Wilhelm and Snushall carried the ball alternately, resulted in a touchdown by Wilhelm, who kicped goal nicely, and the score was 6 to o. The visitors made a beautiful kick oft ' , ' ilhelm got the ball and was downed on our 16-yard line. Snushall made a pretty end run, but was stop])ed in fine style by Lewis. A double pass from Wilhelm to Snushall resulted in a long gain, and Wilhelm made another like it around right end. Some center plays resulted in gains for us, and then Snushall went around left end for a long gain. Raff playing fine interference. The ball was within a few feet of the goal, and with the next play Snushall carried it over the line for a touchdown, and Wilhelm kicked goal, making th score 12 to o. A train the visitors kicked off, and the ball was caught bv Snu- shall, vli(! iiuitlc a tine run through a broken field, to within rive yarils of the center. ( )n the next pass. Wilhelni made a lung punt, and as the Kalkaska man caught it he was downed by Slater before he had gained a fo( t. Kalkaska made a center run, and was downed back of the line for a big loss. Lewis tried right end but matle no gain, and the ball was secured by Maynard on an unsuc- cessful attempt to punt. T. C. H. S. matle some good gains, then lost the ball on a fumble and the half ended with the ball in Kalkaska ' s possession. In tile second half with the game secure, our High School played less of the regulation plays, and used trick plays to advan- tage. The ball was crowded rapidly to within a few yards of Kal- kaska ' s goal, and then lost on downs. K. H. S. made a yard by a center play, then fumbled. Slater got the ball and was sure of a touchdown had not Wilhelni mistaken him for a Kalkaska man. and tackled him. Snushall i)ut the ball throusfh the center for a goal between the posts, but ' ilhelm failed in his attempt at goal, and the score was 17 to o.. Again Kalkaska kicked, and the ball was carried by W ' ilhelm to within five vards of the center of the field. There Mcintosh had his wind knocked out. and H. Despres took his place, playing well to the close of the game. The ball was rapidly forced down to within a few feet of the goal, when within only half a minute to play, W ' i ' .helm went through the line with a touchdown. He failed in an attempt at the goal, and the score was 22 to o. The utmost good feeling prevailed in the game and there was no slugging nor fouling. K. H. S. was heartily cheered at the close. The boys were at the train to see them off and again cheered them. Following is the line-up of the game: Tr-wersit City H. S. Kalk.vsk. H. S. J. Slater Left End B. Wright C. Maynard Left Tackle P .

ThanksgiYing- Day. the Petoskeys met their Waterloo at !2th St. Park and the Higli School added another to its list of victories. The team from the sea-serpent city arrived on the 9 -.7,0 train and after a good dinner were on the grounds promptly at 2 :30 ready for the game. A good-sized cro Yd Yas present and there Yas no delay in starting the game. Our High School had a slight advantage in weight which told somewhat in mass plays, but the game was won on its merits. Xo visiting team has ever played a more clean, straight-for- ward game here. They were gentlemen and won the friendship of t!ie spectators, and especial!}- cil the llii h School team. They played l:)al] all of the time loo. and were in the L;ame to its close, never ceasing to play hard and fa t. At the 0])eninQ- of the game the home team kicked oil, and. the ball was downed on Petoskey ' s 20-_ ard line. The visitors made a good gain aronnd the end, when on the next ])lay Snnshall passed the interference, and downed the l)all for a loss of five yards to the Petoskeys. Then the hall went over on downs. The play was opened for a long gain aronnd right end, May- nard, the new half back, carrying the ball. Tlie play was fast all the time, and Maynard and Snnshall alternated carrying the ball for good gains around the end or gaining steadily through the line, till at the end of 7 ' _ ' minutes, Maynard made a touchdown righr betv;een the goal posts. H e was thrown and the ball fell fr()ni his hands, but Vogelsong fell on it. Novotny kicked the goal handily and the score was 6. Petoskey kicked oil ' , and the ball vas caught and carried to the center of the field by Langworthv. Then Petoskev got it on a fumble, but lost it at once on ' dow ns, Snushall again tackling the half back in the rear of the line. Snushall made a good gain around the end and another through the center, when Maynard took a run around the end for a gain of 25 yards, Snushall play- ing fine interference. A series of line bucks and Maynard made a tounchdown through the center. Novotny made a pretty kick but the ball struck the bar, and the score was 11. Again Petoskey kicked to Langworthy, and the ball was car- ried to within four yards of the center of the field. Snushall made a great gai n around the left end, and was booked for a touchdow-n had it not been for a tackle by Gix. But the touchdown was made a little later by Langworthy, in a fine rttn around right end. It was a hard place to kick the goal, and Xovotny ' s failure was perfectly excusable. The score was 16 for the home team. It required but 33 2 minutes for this touchdown. Again Petoskey kicked to Langworthy, and the ball was car- ried nearly to the center of the field. A double pass was tried, Avhich resulted in a loss of five yards, but the loss was more than made up by a long end run of Maynard, in which four men in suc- cession were foiled in their attempt to tackle him, he going down before the fifth. Snushall made a long end gain and was very near the line wdien downed. He crossed it in another play, and the score was 21 as Xovotny failed to kick goal. The half ended as the touchdowai w as made. Petoskey began the .second half by a kick off to Snushall. who made a fine run. Alternate plays by Snushall and Maynard car- ried the ball rapidly almost to the visitors ' goal. A fumble threat- ened to lose the ball. Imt Rover, the little quarter back who played in this game for iho first time, fell on the ball and in another min- ute Xov(Uny carried it over for a tonchdown. He kicked a nice goal and ihe score was 2 " ]. A ain the hall was kicked to Snushall. w ho fumbled, but May- uard frli en it Several long gains by Snushall and Maynard carried the hall to the visitors ' lo-yard line. A double pass from Langwortiiy to Hurley carried tlie hall back of the goal posts, but the referee decided that it was a forward pass, and the ball was brought back. Snushall made a long end gain on the next ])lay and a touc ' idown was scored. Xcjvotny kicked low, the ball liit the bar, making the score 32. .Again Snushall got the ball on the kick off, and made a good gain. Some good gains were made through the line, then Xovotny punted. The ball went to Gix, who failed to hold it, and T-angworthy carried it over the line for a touchdown, i ' etoskey claimed the catch was interfered with. Petoskey kicked to Xovotny, who carried the ball almost to the center. A wedge play in which Snush.all carried the ball, made a long gain, then the jall was passed to Langworthy, who made a long run and crossed the line. P)Ut it was a forward pass, and Petoskey got the ball. Then the most exciting ])lays of the game began. Perhaps the fastest work of the entire game was done here by Petoskey. A gain made around right end, another around left end, a good one through the center : but in the next, X ' ogelsong downed the ball back of the line for a loss. Then P)abcock tried a 30-yard place kick, and missed a goal by only a few feet. The ball was secured by N ovotny and Petoskey wanted a score of 2 on account of a touch back. Referee estgate was doubtful of its being a touch back ; anywa , as the rules gave no authoritv for scoring on a touch back, the score was k ' clared 3«S- o in favor of the I ' lack and Gold. Mavnarrl showed his efficiency as a half back during the game and ought to make a strong man for the team next vear. Following is the line-up of the two teams: Tf wrrsi-: City ?T. S. Petoskkv H. S.

JE luiseluiU scasDii of 1899-1900 opened for the High School team er}- soon after school commenced in September. On September 11, the entluisiasts met and elected liigh School Athletic Association officers as follows : President — Supt. C. H. Horn. Secretary and Treasurer — Herbert 1. Somers. The organization was etifected with the ever present aim of interesting " athletics in the various departments. Xo large association of this nature can do any amount of busi- ness without financial support and after Robert E. Walter and Frank Xovotny had been chosen Manager and Captain. res])ec- tively, of the team to be, they set about to replenish the treasury with funds, raised by popular subscription among the High School players. In a few days enough wherewithal was collected to buy a new second hand baseball, and a meeting for the inspection of the l)asebari tossers was announce ' d to take place on Twelfth Street Park immediately after the afternoon session of the school. This meeting was largely attended and proved to be very interesting to many. A foraged pump-handle was extracted from the cloth- ing of a manlv looking studeiu and soon the newly ptnxhased horsehide was once again bounding over the diamond, nipping a finger here and there and avoiding being caught as much as pos- sible. The first night ' s practice developed perplexing questions, along with sore fingers, to Captain Xovotny. Enough players to compose several very amateur teams were present. However, these difficulties were cleared the next night when only a few extra players reported for work. For several days following good A-ork was accomplished and some good practice games were ]:)layed among the students, notwithstanding that the line-up on each side was irregular every time. Soon, however, the team was chosen and an invitation to a contest with lienda ' s Twirlers was accepted, though the latter had been playing all summer. Their advantage in long ])ractice was clearly seen in that first game, when the High School boys were defeated by two scores, the finish being 5 to 7. More practice was heaped upon the students and every player was urged upon to be present at the next game with the Twirlers. This came off on a Saturday and also proved fatal. A number of the High School team failed to appear, and another game was lost, 9 to 6. This aroused the ire of Manager Walter and after that it behooved every player, who cared for his position, to be ready for practice exactly four minutes from the time school was out, every night. X o dates were arranged for a week. For five nights the pitchers received their " bumps " without a murmur, and every player received his blessing when the ball was dropped with- out inakiiig an audible reference lo tlic fault of his glove or mitt. Toward the end of the week it was officially announced that an- other game with the Twirlers would be risked on Saturday. The hour of the game iomvi every player on the bench, trembljng with excitement and wondering to himself if this would not be the last chance he would have to defend the lUack and Gold. Catcher Dunn was the first to bat and promptly sent the ball on an excur- sion into left field while he made tracks for second base via first. With this mortgage on the game at the start, each student player added heavy interest and at the end of the seventh inning, fore- closed their rights to victory 8 to 4. with hardly an error to their credit. The following week they performed a similar feat against the same opponents, the score standing g to 3. The next game betv.een the Twirlers and the High School took place one night after school, and was given to the former on what has since been termed a " technical point. " The High School team was last at bat with two men out. three on bases, and only one score behind, when Coacher W ' ilhelm. chief strategy- coacher. pretending he was a base runner, ran from third base toward home plate. The ball was passed hurriedly to the catcher, who missed it and the real base runner at third base came home. The catcher endeavored to catch tb.e second base runner at third base, and here again the ball was fumbled and the runner reached home safelv. bringing in the winning score. lUit the other man was caught between second and third anrl the side was retired. Then commenced a series of complaints that the two scores brought in during those plays were illegal because they were made on a play retiring the side. Xothing woukl pacify the complainants and finally Cap- tain Xovotny ' s goofl nature bade him give the decision in favor of them. The last game to be mentioned is one that would hardly be recorded with consent of the players, if tlie High School had been the losers. This time the " Invincible Armadas " were the con- testants for honors with the High School team. Manager ' al- ter had been rather dubious about the advisability of arranging dates with this team, considering them, from their title, something too strong for the High School team to handle. However jt was proved that invincible sometimes, once anyway, meant ro zvincible for during the entire nine innings not an Armada crossed home ])late and very few saw first base. The students pitted twentv runs. During these series of games the battery for the High School was . omcrs and Dunn. j Kalkaska High School and Elk Rapids were written to for games but they did not organize in the fall. C)ld Mission could give us no game as they disbanrlcd with Catcher Lardie ' s depart lire for the University. Several dates were arrang-ed with the asyhini team but the High School was disappointed in getting a game wiMi them. ) SF.ASOX OF 1900. The season opened the latter part of April and officers for the team were elected as follows : Manager — Frank Xovotny. Captain — Tom W ' ilhelm. Much interest was manifested in getting a team started again this spring and a large number of old time players and some new ones reported for practice each night. The main difficulty pre- sented this season was in the fact that other aggregations were slow in getting organized. Xo regular matches have yet been plaved. but excellent prospects for games with t)Utside High Schools are in view. May 10, 1900. H. Whcir .SonAC of Our Hkih .School SKiclcnLs Have DoHe in Afhletk .

As early as the inoiitli o ( )ct()lK ' r the Seniors eoninieiiced to think of plans and preparations for the Annual. For this it was necessary tliat we should have money in the treasury, so a Pu ' ii]:)kin -Pie Social was decided upon for the purpose of starting this fund. We held the social in l ' )resters ' Hall the evening of October 22d, and a large crowd patronized the tables, showing the high appreciation of the public for pumpkin pie. The evening was a ery enjoyable one. Mr. Horn had the honor of devouring the most pie. It was a complete success both socially and financially. ( )ne monday night in January the Seniors and others gath ' - ered in the old K. of 1 ' . Hall for the purpose of enjoying a box social. The hall was found by the girls as the boys had hunted in vain for a stopping place for one evening, and as the door to success is labeled " Push. " they failed. The early ])art of the evening was sjicnt in playing carroms and jolly social chats around in the corners which had been made attractive by screens and other decorations. Lawyer Ciilbert ap- peared upon the scene and the night-caps were given to a merci- less auctioneer who .sent them flying to the right and left. Then what fun the boys had finding their partners for supper, but soon the girls appeared bedecked in crimson, yellow, pink, blue and every other colored bonnet imaginable. After lunch we spent the time in playing jolly games and at a late hour we wended our way homeward feeling that a profitable and eniovable evening had been spent. The (ii|) u l:n((in |)nuiil. A. i ' ) (i the aric(l uiKkTtakiiii s vi the Class of lyoo, ncMic clc- .-crvcs greater conimeiulation. or ])roves more clearl_ - their energy and perseverance than the ' entei-tainnient given in the City Opera House the evening of Marcli j and ,v Idle name tliongh suggestive can give 1)ni a fainl conception of thic novel and pictures(|ue scene that greeted expectant visitors. In appearance, the opera ln)usc had ])een transformed into a veri- table gilisy camp with tents, camp hres, wagons, and the ever nec- essai " v accessories of gipsy life, dogs and stolen chickens. A tour through rlie cam]) revealed dark-eyed maids offering for sale a " Drink from Sunny Spain ; " " Zingarella, the Mf wer (iirl, " tempt- ing the tmwary to buy just one llower or man from her basket. A real Spring maiden. Azticena, whose hearts, darts and mittens proved favorite soitvenirs. Here a group of singers attracted attention, there men in gipsy dress lounged idly around the camp fires, while others called lustily from covered wagons, " Luck pack- ages for sale, here ' s here you get your luck. " At every turn a new surprise awaited the uninitiated until in imagination you were far away amidst the real life of these interesting people. As soon as the curiosity of the spectators had been gratified, a program was rendered in true gipsy fashion. This consisted of songs, reci- tations and tableaux, a wand drill by sixteen gaily dressed maidens being one of the prettiest features. All the characters deserve commendation, yet this sketch will permit the mention of only the more prominent. .Vmong those were Zarca, the chief ; Zingara, the fortune teller ; Zingarella, the flower girl ; Azucena, the heart, dart and mitten girl ; the fiendish hags and the beautiful gipsy queen. The financial success of the first evening seemed to justify its repetition and accordingly with some variations the entertain- ment was repeated. Had there existed any doubt regarding the appreciation of the audience or the success of the entertainment from an. artistic standpoint they were utterly put to flight by the liber al patronage accorded it the second evening. The purpose of th.e entertainment was commendable. It was planned with a view to raising funds for an annual and in this the Class was not to be disappointed, as the entertainment netted them the neat sum of ninctv dollars. riiai il ])r( vc(l so successful was duv lari cly u iIk- luiiiring efforts of the Class, thouij li they recciveil valuable assistance not only from the nienihers of the High School and the teachers — especially Miss Downing and Miss I ' .liss. also, from MrsT J. B. Martin and others not directly connected with the school. ' The plan was new and the ingenuity of those who proposed and exe- cuted it, was everywhere in evidence. Everything from the gay parade to the gipsy program was instructive and entertaining, proving beyond a doubt tlie resdvu-i-efulness of this most resource- ful of classes. Sldglviicle fo P)in()U(in . OX! ' " , day in the cold month of Fel)ruary the naughty-naughts decided to run away from school. They came bright and early that morning, each having his lesson, thinking that that would surely pardon him from any guilt of the day. They made a great deal of noise, tittering and whispering, and the faculty stared and wondered, but could not imagine what the " Dignitaries " were going to do. But the mysterious. — the unknown, — did not remain in the dark long; it was revealed when the bell gave its last toll at noon, and the ones in authority looking up the rows of seats noticed that every senior, excepting an exceedingly l)rave one, was missing. Just then their attention was called to a sleigh load of youths with much cultivated brain matter crying out in a loud voice. " Razzle! Dazzle ' IJilT Boom lial. ! Traverse C " ity High School, Rah. Rah, Rah ! " Then the faculty turned tc their classes, and on went the jolly sleigh load. They were absorbed in the beauty of the country ; the woods, the bay, the wide stretching hills. But the hilly ( Hillie ) country was especially admired by one of the girls. Finally these scenes passed from their view and before them in all its glory appeared the knighted town of Bingham. X time was sjient in viewing the town, for ahead of them, just back of a hill, was the little school taught by the Long and Sh( rt of it ; this was the place they were desirous of reaching. The teachers came forth and in an embar- assing manner greeted the sin-jM-ise party, while about forty or fifty littK ' urchins stood in the hackgrounil viewing the scene with knowiii " ' iduntenances. . " onie nf them decorated their faces with a hroad j rin. when tlK ' - saw the sciiinrs carrying lari c sacks and one, a large can. After the cliiUiren had departed, a search for a cook (or cookie) was tlie next thing on the program. I ' inahy an experienced one was found, who could demonstrate geometry problems and cook oysters at the same time, which he did in an excellent manner. After eating a bounteous supper, some of the " Dignitaries, " remembering that they were to appear on the Ly- ceum program that evening, after nnich persuasion succeeded in getting the others ready. After singing a favorite song they started on their homeward tri]), reaching the city in time to hear a fe ' v closing jxiris of the Lvceum program. 5lei(jlvi ' kle foCiUiifon SchoolhoiLse. OXE bitter cold night in March, 1900, the Senior Class w ' as to meet at Wait ' s drug store to drive out to Gunton ' s School- liouse to a box social. At the appointed time the girls of the class were there but to the astonishment of all only the bov who was to see about the team was present. The girls lieing e(|ual to the occasion said : " " The bo}-s needn ' t think the} ' are the whole thing, we can drive and we will go any- way. " ( )ne of the members showed great skill in driving and every- thing went nicely until about a half mile from town when they dis- co ' ered that they were on the wrong road and the horses had to wade about knee deep in the snow for some distance. They finally reached the scliool-house. however, and w ' ere rovallv entertained bv the teacher and others. CocLslino |)(i 0 the cvoiiiiii:;; of 1900 the i6th of March, a very cold nitjht, the iherniometer reijjistering nearly zero, the Senior Class canie together with tobogfsj ans to slide down hill. 1 ' hcy foini(i a hill, a larcfi hill, and slid down hill with all the swiftness the hill would give them. At about ten they went to the home of Winifred Fuller and had a feast. The menu, furnished by the Class, con- sisted of onions, frankforts. coffee, cookies and bread and butter. Enjov themselves. ' Xo they didn ' t. In the wee hours of the iiiorning ihey sang — " Sweet bunch of onions, brought from the dell. Kiss me once darling. ( )nions won ' t smell. " etc.. and went home.

It was " marble season, " you know. We didn ' t play marbles for keejis. but we had a marble hunt and there was a winner and a booby in the game, each of whom received suitable prizes. X ' ext we saw ourselves as (Others see us, in character sketches. We had refreshments too. My but they were good ! The boys were all glad they went. So were the girls. O yes, and there was music in the air while we re- freshed ourselves, . fter we had eaten all we wanted we had our fortunes told. .Some of us will be old maids and bachelors, some will be nuns, one is going to invent a geoiuetry lubricator, another will be president, still others will marry. Well, it was kind of late then, so we went lioiue. We ' d like to go again. Maybe some of us will be Seniors next year just so we will be invited to another such partv.

Jiinioi ' l?(X(ptioii THE junior ! ece]jtion to the Seniors was introduced as a High School function in Max, eighteen ninety-eight. The class of ninety-nine — then Juniors — was unlawfully barred out of the annual Senior- junior I ' arty, and to heap coals of fire upon the heads of the august Seniors and to display its ability in a social way, introduced a new function — a reception to the Seniors and Higli School teachers. The first affau " was such an event social)} ' that the class of nineteen hundred took up tlie affair in May, eighteen ninety-nine, and outdid the originators. The ]-)opularity of this rece])tion has caused it to become established as an annual social event. One of the i)leasantest social events during the Senior year was tlie rece]:)tion given by the Jimiors. May the uSth. at Montague Hall. Tl ' ie invitations were written in Latin. The Hall was artistically draped with the colors of the two classes. Easy chairs, couches, rugs, and ])otted plants added to the attractiveness of the room. An interesting program of music and recitations was given. From a Iwoth in one corner two charming little maids in pink and green served frappe and angel food. The Seniors will alwavs be reminded of the lia])] ' occasion l)y the dainty souvenirs thev carried awav with them. William H. Foster, Prentiss E. Whitman, Matilda ' R.kKT.KV.-McMa iNS, Luxie M.
