Senior Class History
N a bright September morn of the year l92O, a close observer might have
detected, "pussy3footing'l about the halls of Qld Tridel, various individuals of
seemingly small consequence and a decidedly fresh and greenish appearance.
But regardless of how unimportant they may have seemed at the time. they were none
other than the great illustrious class of '24.
ll'ith solemn dignity-acquired after an ardent survey of our upper classmenfwe
entered upon our First assemblage. As yet we had not mastered the popular art of
voting, but after prolonged consideration we decided to place our trust in 'lohn Naylor
as president, aided by Tom Bloch, vice-president, .lean Haller, secretary, and Merle
Thompson, treasurer. "Spike" proved to be a good sport and led the infants to the
harbor of "Sophomority', without serious mishap to our frail craft.
Here in a slightly more sophisticated meeting we elected our "Crew". The presi-
dent's chair was filled to its utmost capacity by Robert Rodgers, who was ably assiste
ed by Vice-President Merle Thompson, Secretary Dorothy Davies, and Treasurer .lean
ln this our second year of higher lear'ning we beheld with growing enthusiasm
the ready response of our class to the call of athletics. Many were the participants
in the various branches afforded. liy the end of that year, the lllue and XX'hite was
permanently unfurled in T. D. H. S.
September of '22 arrived and with it a Junior Class of rare genius. XYe were
now upper classmen, and as such donned a dignified appearance save in class meet-
ings, during the first of which we elected Harold Bycott as our president. "Spigot"
was-shall we say abetted P-by Yice President XYilliam Schambra, Secretary XYilson
Xvaterhouse and Treasurer Yirginia XYeaver and by a marshal as in other years.
At Hallowe'en season the Senior Class entertained us by means of a masquerade
which all enjoyed. Determined not to be outdone we returned the good time in the
form of a banquet, after which dancing was permitted for the first time. Thus ended
our -lunior year.
VVe had by this time cast aside all superfluous characteristics and had assumed a
feeling of good fellowship toward one and all alike. So well pleased were we with
the administration of the previous year that President Bycott and Yice President
Schambra were again chosen while Bernice Brennan and Robert Rodgers were elected
Secretary and Treasurer respectively.
At the first of the vear we entertained the Juniors at a masquerade dance. This
jolly time, they returned in a banquet at the close of the year. Since one is never too
old to eat, we dignified Seniors did our part handsomely.
Another event of the year was a barn dance given by our class, the proceeds of
which were used in buying a gift for the school.
But alas! All good things must end, and scholastic life is no exception, so on the
night of graduation we took our places for the last timeg the crowning event being
the presentation of Diplomas. How we clung to that "sheepskin" lest by some freak
of Fate it should be snatched from us! That night T. D. Pl. S. closed its doors behind
us forever, but as we glance back over our history we find that all was not in vain.
Football and basketliall captains like those we have furnishednare not found every
where. nor are track men like the "one of oursi' who in 1922 broke the state record in
the 440-yard dash.
Neither would we forget how our girls' class basketball team has further proved
our athletic ability by winning the championship for three years, failing to do so only
in 1923. T
lYhile three of our classmates won the first. second and third prizes, respectively.
in the K. of ll, oratorical contest. the Senior girls were strengthening our class repu-
tation by their brilliant accomplishments in the Stone and Thomas sewing contest.
the second prize being won bv a Senior.
Great have been our achievements: now we go forth to conquer, cherishing the
memorv of Triadelphia in hearts ever loval.
XVho will doubt that the class of T24 is one to stand the test of time?
HE burning hot sands of the Arabian desert blew blindly against our warm faces.
Our eyes, eternally weary, roamed hopelessly along the monotonous horizon.
Sand, only clayish, dull sand! NVC had been moving several nerve breaking
weeks through this frugal region, going to Agar where we, the editors-in-chief, were
to make special reports for our magazines, jean Haller for The Literary Digest,
llarold Bycott for College Humor, and Pauline Beekman for The Atlantic Monthly.
The flaming sun, setting, reflected a rosy hue on a small strip of desert to the
east. Suddenly appeared there a soft, white tent and we, tired wanderers, rushed to its
door, and standing at the doorway in flowing sheik robes smoking an exotically fash--
ioned cigarette, stood Roy McCuskey.
He greeted us enthusiastically and offered us cigarettes manufactured by XYilliam
llwinnell, and bearing the odo1'ous name of "0-Smell-O's.U
Then he took us into his tent decorated by Virginia Crider with furniture from
Ray Ridgwayis store. Also seated in the tent were many of our friends, namely
Eleanor Adams who was Head of the League of VVomen Voters, Edwin Eox who was
an evangelistic speaker, Margaret Blayney whose landscape paintings were famous
in all America and Europe. Marguerite Halliwell, world's high jumper, and Mary
Beck, ex-basketball coach at XYellesley, were comparing notes about their recent
achievements. Bernice Brennan, a noted author, now married, was talking impress-
iyely to the still handsome Robert Rodgers, an ambassador to China. Their discus-
sion was about Dorn Stewartls famous book, "How to Make Yourself a Social Neces-
sityf' in which he cites Howard Smith, john Barrymore's successor, as a striking exam-
ple. They also mentioned -lohn Naylor's clever drama reviews in a recent issue of "Life,"
and Howard Smallwood's success as editor of "The Century." Then Earl XYeimer
entered, having been busy previously setting up a radio. He was head radio expert
for the XYestinghouse Company. David Carle, as great an inventor as Edison, was
with him, and lastly, Robert Delany, a poet with a style like Robert Frost's, and
Robert Stein, the far-famed inventor of Noiseless Chewing Gum, entered. XVC all were
ehattering happily when-everything seemed quiet as death, we rubbed our eyes, the
sun was sinking lower, and the rosy shadow and the tent with all its occupants were
gone. and as far as we could see stretched sultry, merciless sand.
After wandering for what seemed many hours, there appeared in the distance. a
blue light which shaped itself into a movie studio. XYe rushed frantically toward
the location, then we stopped to look with awe: we recognized XYilson XVaterhouse
directing the filming of a great picture called "The Fall of Babylon," written by Syd-
ney Criffen and subtitled by Charlotta Crow. The heroine fa queenl was Ruth Coher-
ly surrounded by members of the Court who were watching the specialty dancer, Bea-
trice Kelly. assisted by Cleo and Alberta Carpenter. the rivals of the Dollv Sisters.
Alexander Moore fthe herol was furiously making love to the queen while Merle
Thompson fthe handsome villainj looked daggers at the impassioned suitor.
At the left we saw a picture of the Elapper Age being filmed. The setting was
a cafe where Anna Saylor fthe flappiest flapperl was throwing a hilarious party. The
beverage was furnished by Don Parent, owner of the largest oop concern in the coun-
try. Some other flappers, namely: Dorothy Headley, .Tulia Games. Mildred Commit-
tc. Eleanor Connelly, Beatrice Rider, Margaret Smith, and Ella Springer, were star-
ring there in special acts.
However, one of the principal features of the party was a dance by Marv Ella
Steenrod, Hazel Cunningham, and Lucille Sneiser. pupils of George Petticord, a famous
dancing teacher. Morton Ereese was directing this production, surrounded by a group
of assistants and spectators composed of Ioan Hoge, head of the art department of
Carnegie Tech, Edith Gibson, and Anna Mae Miller. both popular stars, who were
watching the making of this great picture. Harold T,loyd. they said, could count the
pennies his pictures brought him since Leonard Sclwreck became a movie star,
The costumes were designed by Tnez Cole and Hannah Anderson. The decorations
and furnishings were supplied by Archie Gifhn and Harold Morrison. proprietors of :I
splendid furniture company. i A ' T
Catherine Ebert. secretary to Melvin XYallace. owner of the Snanpem Picture
Co.. was talking with Erances Hayes. A-gn'-s Anderson. and Blanche Davis. famous
actresses, and Kathleen Palmer, president of a large insurance company. who were
watching the great spectacle. H
Suddenly a gust of wind blew sand against our faces and everything disappeared.
Nothing remained but the dusty expanse of burning sands.
Disillusioned again we rode wearily on, the sand became burnt sienna but never-
theless monotonous. A yellow light appeared on the sand toward the east and when
its first brilliancy dulled we saw in it a massive ivory summer hotel. It had a com--
fortable, cool appearance, its low porch filled with groups of people in brilliantly col-
ored sport costumes, -
XYe approached the hotel, our minds enraptured with visions of civilized com-
forts long denied us, but we never expected all the pleasures we were to receive. For
when wc arrived on the porch we met Dorothy Davies, secretary of Finance for Sears
and Roebuck, .lunietta Kalbitzer. secretary of education in the Presidential cabinet
of our own government. Catharine Arbenz, president of Smith College, Hallie l.atta,
a famous singer, her remarkable violinist, Martha Crowe, and her excellent accom-
panist, Mary Madden, Rhea Hicks, manager of B. Altman Co.. and her very able
assistant, Ressie Ault.
XYhen we had talked to them for some time, we went into the attractive lobby of
the hotel and there were seated Marie Hartman and Martha Knoke,XYest Yirginia state
senators, Mary l.yons and Sarah Cook, both managers of orphans' homes. ln the
lobby also were Russell Elliott. saxophonist. and Carl Bell, clarinctist, both of Paul
XYhiteman's orchestra, fMr. xxvl'lltCll1Z1l1 was now an old, man and had nothing to do
with the management of his orchestra which was directed by these two Triadelphia
boysl. XYilliam lirice. head football coach at the international Correspondence School,
.lack Mclielvey. world's best cartoonist. and Earl Gneiser and Edward Guenther, both
After Q1 lengthy ennyergntinn we Went to the telephone where we found Cathe-
rine Rurruss as chief telephone operator, l.ouise Schweizer, ambassador to Chile. was
standing near talking to the proprietor of the hotel, John B. Carter. XYC spoke to
them and l.ouise told us that Anna Phillips, Phala Rader, Ruth Rice. Jessie Simms
and Madelyn Scharf were happily married and were visiting in Australia at the time.
A group of people came towards us. Among them were filadvs McCutcheon and
Carolyn M'cl.ain. famous doctors. Martha Ellen Petticord, president of the Three
.Nrts Club, Dorothy XX'hite. author of the vear's best seller entitled "The Artist." Yir-

Then a dark cloud seemed to encircle LIS, we extended our arms grasping our travel
t'tllll1Hl1Cl'lt. we raised our eyes. night was coming on. and all around us was merely
darkness and the sand lying in rippling folds to the horizon.
lYe rode drowsilv on. the heavens of black samite were sparkling with shining, sil-
very stars and as we watched. we saw 3 brilliant white light appear on the sand in the
south. It formed a rectangle. and the imperial, White city of Wheeling was conjured
up from it. l-Tow inviting it looked!
XVC hurried to its Market Street and walked happily down it. The first thing we
saw was an immense new department store owned by Minnie Park and Edward Mil-
lar. Next we saw a fashion shop whose proprietors were Mildred Erasher. Zelda Sli-
gar. and Cwendolvn Stephens. and a notice of the appointment of Edward Doepken
as the editor-in-chief of the XVheeling News. Next we met Sara Thornburg. a famous
designer. and, Harold Hamm. a Saturday Evening Post illustrator. They told us that
Charles Noll was dancing at the Palais Royal in New York City. Bernice Hanna was
a Congressman, Marion Mahan was consul to Hawaii, Minnie XYhite was principal
of our own Triadelphia High School. Chester Hubbard and Laurence Goldinger owned
a drug store. Ruth XVoods was visiting in Europe, Harold Timblin was president of
Bethany College. Harold Ungerleider owned a bus line, and Hugh Serig was the owner

ing's best mayor. came toward us. As We were speaking, wild cries filled the air. we
beld om- em-e and blinked our eyes and on opening them saw the silver city of Agar
in the distance.
A gentle breeze wafted the warm sand into our burning faces, but it was not
unwelcome for this very sand had made for us miraculous mirages. Beautiful. mys-
tical niirages showing us our illustrious classmates. all of them svmbols of triumph-
ant lives. Although these desert pictures are only vivid, glowing visions, they are true
in that all the class of Twenty-Four will reach the glorious peaks of success.

Go Ye Ancl Do Likewise
ING AR'l'HCll of Round lable fame had conquered his enemies, not only tic
Barons, men of his own race and creed, but also the heathen, in many wars
of long duration. Ilis task had been strenuous and difficult and tedious.
Along with his own struggles he had contended for a certain King Leodogran who
had been in sore need of aid. ln doing this Arthur had won himself a bride, a maiden
of the fairest, beautiful, gracious, lovely, 'tnd lovable. Her name was Guinevere and
she was King l.eodogran's daughter.
And now everything seemed to smile on Arthur's reign. Prosperity ruled, the
heathen were expelled, and the ruler of this peaceful realm had possessed himself of
a wife, dear to his heart. Arthur ordered feasts to be prepared, banquets spread, jousts
arranged, the people indulged in merry-making and general rejoicing.
But even now Arthur, poor man, is not entirely free from cares of state. Envoys
from Rome approach and, loath as he is to do it, nevertheless our king tears himself
from happiness, pleasure and gaiety to face tiresome. boring duties. XYith a delib-
erate consideration of the subject by a mind entirely concentrated on this one thing.
all thoughts and remembranccs of the recent joy banished, hc, prompted by his keen
insight, accomplishes an action of wonderful statesmanship which later does much
good for his kingdom.
Very often, it seems, many high school boys and girls or even humanity as a
whole is at certain times especially unwilling to work. XYhen someone has finished
a task well, then a period of laziness "sets in" when the individual experiences that
self-satisfied feeling, thinking that it is nothing more than his due to enjoy himself and
"loaf,'. He is irritated if any duty or task presents itself to him and is unwilling to
give it his attention or exert himself. But to succeed, no matter at what inopportune
moment a need arises. he must exert himself, he must attend to it, do the deed and
do it well. He must not act in a haphazard fashion with an eye to shortening the
length of time required so that he may quickly return to his banquets of leisure. If,
like King Arthur, he does give his undivided attention and greatest efforts to his duties
-whenever and however they come and whatever they are-he will find and you will
find, and I, and each and every one of us will find that the result more than repays the
effort, and in the end we will again rejoice like King Arthur.
RIADELPHIA students have manifested their originality and cleverness in
staging each year a stunt night. Each year the stunts and frolics have increased
in degree of perfection and have drawn forth more praise. But this time for some
reason the first night of the performance ffor it is given in two-night standsj did not
attract as large a crowd as usual, for previously the place was jammed to the windows
and this night our auditorium was not quite completely hlled. The next night the
crowd was huge, though.
The only reason to which we can attribute this decrease in attendance is to the
lack of publicity. lt could not be because of the quality of the stunts for they were
even better than usual as was stated before, Although our annual frolic and fun fes-
tival could by no means be termed a failure nevertheless it could have been made
more successful the first night by a little spreading of the facts. And so next year and
the following years, the people presenting these affairs should take this as a warning.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY
HIS year, as usual at T. 15. H, S., the Seniors are putting on a very clever play,
well staged, well directed, and well acted. The cast is not a very large one and.
as must necessarily be the case in a class of over 100 when almost every member
is eager to be in the play, many
people were disappointed.
But there was no grumbling or charge of unfair dealing or any of those kindred
unpleasant occurrences which often take place under similar circumstances. Classes
yet to graduate, sec that you conduct yourselves as well as did '24.

"ADAM AND EVA"
The senior class play this year was "Adam and Eva," a recent Broadway success.
The play was secured through Norman Lee Swartont, who handles the newest plays.
It concerns the struggles of one Adam who is left in the position of father to a
very wealthy family while the real father tries to forget his family cares as far away
as possible. Of course there is a beautiful daughters-Eva, by name-and various
other dependent relatiyes.
Adam decides to use strategy and announces that all the money is gone. The
family rises nobly to the occasion and finds life on a chicken farm just as interesting
as in a city mansion.

OCTOBER 27, 1923
That was last fall. lt was our annual junior-Senior Masquerade and turned out
to be wonderfully successful. The gymnasium was dressed up in its Sunday best with
pumpkins and lanterns, haystaeks, etc. The evening was spent in playing games.
dancing, and feasting on the delicious refreshments characteristic of the season.
Every year the State Education Association meets in some city in NVQ-st Virginia
to discuss educational affairs. Tn 1923 the meeting place was XYheeling. Triadelphia
District invited these ladies and gentlemen out to our high school for gi reception and
some four or live hundred came. XYe put up samples of the drawing. writing, and vari-
ous other work in the hall. These samples were mostly from the grade schools. high
school work being exhibited in the classrooms. The glee clubs from the junior highs
and from senior high sang for our guests. Copies of a special issue of The Triadelphian
were given as favors.
FEBRUARY 12, 1924
Hereupon was the T Club dance "pulled off." The affair was held at the XX'hecl-
ing Tennis Club in Edgedale, with the music of the Nighthawks from 9:30 to 11 130.

the Sophomore Class planned this little party 'way ahead of time for the twenty-ninth

Although rather late in the year the football banquet turned out to be quite a suc-
cess. Mr. King presided as toastmaster and interspersed through the dinner were
given talks on appropriate subjects by different members of the team. An added
attraction were the songs of the male quartet. the Cfilee Club's representatives on the

The members of the faculty at T. ll. H. S. in acceptance of an invitation from
the new members ofthe faculty met on March 13, in the parlor of the Y. NY. C. A.
to proceed to the Virginia Theatre. The brilliant and exciting Scaramouche was there
at the time. Later everyone adjourned to the Mel-R Garden where delicious refresh-
ments were served. Then a speech of appreciation by Mr, King and applause by the
guests concluded the event.
MARCH 20, 1924
On this memorable date our freshmen took matters into their own hands and
gave themselves a party. Such events improve year after year and by the introduc-
tion of dancing Cshocking! no morej the affair is managed or rather manages itself
much more easily.
OH! SOME TIME IN MARCH!
This is a senior class activity. Probably the first time such an event was ever
held in Triadelphia. lt was fl learn dance given by the seniors but enjoyed by all stu-
dents. The male costumes were overalls and old clothes while the girls wore bright
gingham dresses. Simple CU dancing was the main diversion while the gymnasium
was enhanced in appearance by loads of straw and hay in the balconies. Yery suc-
MAY 13, 1924
The junior-Senior banquet, as usual, proved to be one of the bright spots of school
life. The juniors expended much effort in making this affair a success and the Sen-
iors say that their efforts were not in vain. Eight committees were chosen from the
junior Class and each committee took charge of a certain part of the affair and saw
to it that the details were all arranged. The place-card committee was very success-
ful and the place-cards themselves so cleve 'ly made that most of the crowd present
saved and prized them. Over these committees was one composed of five members
of the faculty-Mr. jacob, Chairman. Bliss Lorentz, Mr. Ryan, Miss Anderson, and Mr.
King-and known as the general committee.
The dinner, served in the prettily decorated gym, was delicious. As Miss Smith
did not feel equal to the task of superintending the preparation of the meal, it was
superintended by the committee. The menu-one that appealed to everybodyfwas
Fruit Cocktail Olives Pickles
Rolled I-Seef and Gravy llaked Corn lticed 'Potatoes
Parker House Rolls Tomato Salad with tielatine Dressing
Salted Nuts Fancy Mints Neapolitan Ice Cream
Fancy Cakes Coffee
After the above dainties were consumed several well prepared speeches were
given. john S. Carter, the president of the class giving the banquet, was the toast-
ntaster, and the different phases of high school life were represented by members from
the faculty and the student body. Altogether this part of the evening's program was
After this the gathering adjourned to the new addition where the rest of the even-
ing was spent in dancing. This was one of the best banquets ever given in T. D. Trl. S.
TUNT NIGIIT has become a permanent institution at Triadelphia High, and it
has been our aim to make each year's program surpass the preceding year's.
This year was no exception. The students and faculty took more interest than
ever lrefore, and most of the stunts were original. The four classes and five organ-
izations took part in the entertainment.
The Freshman offering. "XYell Mixed," took up the Freshman's life from his en-
trance into high school till the end of the school year, when he emerged a finished stu-
dent. The various first year studies were represented by students and the athletics
participated in by the Baby Class were also shown, as well as their social life and
other activities. An appropriate verse, read and written by Estelle O'Brien, made the
Freshman stunt quite original,
"Cav Snatchesf' presented by the Sophomore Class, proved to be very popular.
Snatches of popular songs were acted out and sting by the class Carusos and Galli
Curcis, and in the most interesting moments the songs would stop. Those Sopho-
mores sure were "tantalizin'. aggravatin'l"
The lunior stunt was a burlesque on "The Covered XYagon." The cast was splen-
did. But we certainly hand it to the ones who manufactured the wagon and horses.
One of the spectacular events of the stunt was the terrifying prairie fire consisting
of a bottle. candle and a sign.
"So this is Hollywood." coached by Sidney Giffen, and given by the Seniors.
scored a great success. The stunt was about an author who comes to see his picture
filmed, and does not recognize his own masterpiece, it has been so changed. Some of
the members took the parts of a few of the Well known stars, among them being Poli
Negri. Marv Pickford. Theodore Roberts. Tackie Coogan, Lew Cody, Rudolph Valen-
tino. Tom Mix. and Gloria Swanson. The director of the play was Cecil de Pill.
The Boys' Phvsical Training Class gave a very clever slow motion football stunt
of the famous Triad team in action. The football was swung back and forth on Z1 IOHQ'
string attached to a fishing pole. The name of their stunt was "Not I,askev's Famous

Otto Schmidt. As wrestling has been rt new sport introduced at Triadelphia. it was
"T--lodge Podgef' given bv the Boys' Glee Club, was one of the greatest successes
of the evening, The club were grouped informally on the stage and besides songs the
audience were entertained by the four piece Glee Club little svmphonv orchestra. As
the name implies. the stunt was a hodge podge of amusing incidents and songs.

llli past year saw the most progressive Hi-Y Club that Triadelphia has had. The
work done by the club has not only been of great l'cnefit to the school l-nt to the
mcmbers as well. The slogan, which is clean speech, clean athletics, clean scholar-
ship, clean living, explains the kind of worli done.
ln certain cases, the lfli-Y has cooperated with the Girl Reserves in their endeavor
to arouse school spirit.
A big asset to the club is the assistance the faculty gives. To its members we
extend our sincere thanks and gratitude.
To Mr. McCuskey, our leader, goes most of the credit, Due to his excellent lead-
ership and untiring efforts, great ends have been gained. Under his leadership the
club has grown rapidly. The membership, which two years ago started with seven,
now boasts of thirty-five.
Membership this year came through a long process including one month before
one finally became a full fledged member. After a candidate is put up for consider-
ation and voted on by memoers he is under observation for two weeks. lf he proves
to be up to the standard he is taken into the club and remains two weeks before he is
inducted. This method was found to be most impressive and encouraged membership.
Dinners have been held every two weeks and many special social events given also.
The election of new officers has not yet been held. The present officers are: Mr.
McCuskey, leader and advisor, John B. Carter, president: Merle Thompson, vice prcsis
dent, lloward Lesh, secretary and treasurer.
GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
li CAX'T all be Galli-Curcis nor Carusos, neither can we all be members of
the Girls' Glee Club of Triadelphia High School, therefore, for the bencfit of
those less fortunate onessfso to speakfthere will here follow a brief history
of the club year of 1924.
At our first meeting we elected officers. The outcomevfor lvad or worsesfwas:
president, Marion Mahan: vice president, Martha Crowe: secretary, Mary lflandlan:
treasurer, Marta lless,
Miss McGranahan was, as heretofore, our capable and inspiring director.
XYe made various appearances during the first part of the year but our greatest
success was a modern operetta, "A XYild Rose", the proceeds from which were, as
usual, utilized in buying a gift for the school.
Then, in due time, Stunt Night arrived with all its pep and fun and found us,in
an old linglish song, "Chit Chat," with picturesque frocks and dainty movements.
Our hard task was the preparation for Commencement in which event the Glee
Club always takes part.
This year several new members were chosen to fill the places of previous 'tsonge
stersu, lost, strayed or stolen-the last is possible, not probable.
Then-lest we forgetfthe club has acquired pins this year, owing to the fact that
for some time past there has been no such emblem, we are very proud of our little
GIRL RESERVE CLUB
llli Gllll. RlfSlfRYlf CLUB has been organized in T. D. ll. S. for the past
four years, but until this year has not been a prominent organization. The pro-
gram for the year consisted of suppers held at the Y, movie parties, swimming
parties, and various open discussions on movies, etiquette, and health. The girls, in
carrying out part of their club purpose, performed service in the community by filling
and delivering Thanksgiving baskets for the poor, and aiding the Y. XY. C. A. in
XYheeling in their membership campaign. An important social event of the year was
the Tri-High Banquet, held April 3, 1924. Three members of the club attended the
Girl Reserve Convention, held in Pittsburgh, Feb. 8, 9, and 10, and brought back
many helpful ideas. A very beneficial thing was established in the school, when a
list of personal standards was adopted, and up to which, as a member of the club,
every girl lives on her honor. The Girl Reserve Club is a very beneficial organization,
mentally, physically, and morally, and to it every girl in the high school should be-

IISER LOCUS L
The Liber Locus Club
OT so many years ago some clever mortal conceived the idea of proving what
ever it was he was trying to prove, by tracing it from the Stone Age to our day.
This plan of his yvas seized by every one, explaining almost every theory and
used to such an extent that no one believes your statement now, unless you can at
least illustrate it by that rocky period.
So it is with deep regret that we are forced to admit that our organization has
not been founded so long as that and also that at that time more tangible and stunning
means were used. However, we do know that since civilized peoples have dis-
agreed, one of the most prevalent methods of settling disputes has been by debates.
And because we all realize that this way to express our opinions is far more
praiseworthy than by force, debating is becoming one of the necessary accomplish-
ments of a cultured man or woman.
Debating is one of the principal forms of public speaking enjoyed by the club.
And perhaps more than ever before. during this last year, when eight members of
the organization debated with XYheeling high school's team and another large debate

Waiting for the Bell
T XVAS the Christmas season. Boris Kashirin, colonel of cavalry, was going home
again. The little train had been wheezing along since six that morning and the
late afternoon found him tired .... Home again-ah, that would be good. There
came the remembrance of other Christmases: the time his uncle had been killed in a
duel. Hum . . . yes, long before little Musya had come to live with his aunt. Little
Musya? She was eighteen at that: and he remembered he had been quite taken with
her last year. Mayhap she'd make a good wife for a colonel-pretty, petite, possibly
clever. He thought of his forty years: forty and eighteen-not so good. And then.
living out there in the Russian back-country with his dowager aunt, one could hardly
sav that she'd make a sophisticated and decorative background for a gay dog like him-
Of Course Cousin SCTQC would be tl1CI'e: glad to get away from the Black Sea ....

a complete feeling of ease in his company. Paulus probably thought Musya a dull

humped itself to a standstill.-Home!
Dil'mCr at the CEISUC WHS UVCY HOW imd the candled hall was murmuring with con-
versation. Serge lolled. Paulus waxed eoigrammatic. Boris smoked. The dowager
aunt sat rocking, calm in the imperturbablc dignity of her triple chin, Musya seemed
politely bored. Then she rose. "l'm sorry," ghc said with a dcprecatory gesture.
"but l've a headache, and really think lid better go upstairs."
She was prettv there, the fire-light rippling in orange waves over the white silli

Serge. giving some excuse, left the room.
He ran up the stairs and halted, a little breathless, at Musya's door. Pulling
down his coat he knocked.
"Come in," from Musya.
As he entered she looked a bit surpriSed and a shade of something like disappoint-
ment crossed her face. "Oh, Serge. I'm glad you've come. Here, sit down on the
davennort beside me."
He felt awkward. so bv way of introduction onquired about her headache.
"Oh that." She laughed.
Serge smiled. "Hum, you know how to escape old Boris's dull talk."
"Oh, you mustn't say that."
Then there was a pause. The room was thick with silence. Musva heard him
swallow: then he began. "lNlusya. l came hcrc-how'll l say it?fWQll-oh, Musygi,
won't you marry mel" He put his hand on hers-"XVon,t vou. Musva ?"
The girl sparred for time. waiting for the bell. Her voice sounded forced and un-
natural. "VVhv. you have never told me von loved mein
"Oh, well," he broke in clumsilv. "you know I do." He put his arm about her
and would have kissed her. but she iced him away.
"No, no," she said. "not yet-you don't even let me think. T like you. Serge."
And then she added those words so cruel to 11 lover: "Like a brother."
.Xnvthing to put him off-the fool. llyhy did he have to break out like this just
now? Yes. but him off.
"XYell, Serge. come again in the morning, And now, let me think,"
Serge got un. He felt like running. or turning a cartwhecl. However, he merelv
l-owed and left the room. Outside he cursed himself for a milk-fed ass. imagine pro-
posing and not even kissing the girl! This was very disconcerting to him. The men

was a Ryronic lover: tense but controlled. lint now-a long drink of vodka.
Now the aforesaid vodka assisted Serge in oversleepingg and Paulus, being a true
friend, did not waken him. So it was late when he arrived for Musya's answer. At
her door, however, he stopped short. The devill XYasn,t that Boris's voice coming
through the panel?-Oh, well, cousins could converse once in a while!-Gad, the
man was proposing! . . . Then came the voice of Musya, and there was something sub-
tle about it: "Really, Boris, I can't tell you now.-Come again in the morning."
Serge turned a disconsolate back to the door. It opened. Boris came out. The
lioy turned, and they eyed each other suspiciously.
"'XYell . . . T' from Boris.
"XYell . . . " Serge echoed.
"XYhy, man, l think you were listeningln
Both men noticed the door and moved out of Musya's hearing. ,
"live a right to listen. I proposed to her last night myself. So keep away.
"Look here, you young fool,', Boris flared at him, "you've gone far enough. Youire
a snooping eavesdropper andfi'
Quite quietly Serge slapped the colonel full in the face. "The duelling ground at
tenf' he said.
To the modern mind all this pother about a love-affair seems idiotic and unnatural.
But Serge possessed naive ideas about duels and deaths for love. The thought of
going to Musya and asking her just what she intended, never occurred to him. On the
other hand Boris's honour, raised on the code duello, could not brook a slap in the
face. So ten o'cloek by the river was agreed upon.
Now Serge, not wishing to draw Paulus into the quarrel, was soon riding off to
a neighboring noble's for a second. As he rode he ruminated. Good of him, he thought,
not to have got friend Paulus into all this, and spoil his holiday. l'aulus was not the
only clever young blade in the regiment.
Then he waxed sentimental: dear little Musya, so frank and credulous, nearly his
wife. How he'd spared her the pain of this bloodshed. He recollected that silence
was golden-ah, their happiness would have a golden beginning. :Xfter all, it was
better that she hadn't told Boris about her coming marriage-so hard for him to think
that Serge had beaten him out. But suppose he were killed: that was a thought soon
On the other hand, Boris's plan was of a different kidney. Shortly after Serge's
departure he had cantered to the village to secure the town medic as a second, He
was taking no chances: his man might possibly have to serve in two capacities.
That afternoon Boris tried to sleep.
Musya tapped her foot against the air, often glancing apprehensively toward her
But Paulus sang, flipped his monocle and caught it in his eye.
High above the duelling ground the moon glided in a cloud-splotched sky. There
was little snow on the place-great patches of black against the melting crust of
white. Tomorrow would be Christmas, and over the flat would be hauled the yule
logsg even now snatches of a peasant's carol were caught on the night breeze. To
the left of the ground lay the river. its oily surface jagged with a great slash of moon-
light. On the high ground the castle, sardonic and superior in its strength, winked its
little yellow eyes.
ln the center of the field. at forty paces apart, stood two men. Almost simultan-
eously two red flashes crashed out of the black. and one of the men dropped to the
snowy ground. The other figure remainedstanding from whence he had Fired the shot.
The seconds were bending over the crumpled form on the snow. One looked toward
the standing Figure. "Dead,' he said.
The figure wheeled about rather unsteadily and turned its steps toward the castle.
One or the other, Boris or Serge, was returning to claim her as his bride.
lt really makes little difference which one. Musva had sparred for time, waiting
for the bell. That bell had rung, not as in the prize-ring, but as a marriage bell.
XVhile the duel was taking place she and Paulus had been married in the little Russian
village. JOHN S. NAYLOR, '24.
Maud Muller, on a summer's day,
She sure dolled up and walked away.
Beneath her hat were painted cheeks.
And smooth black hair, she worked for weeks.
She had her looks, and baby squeal,
Vtfith her silk hose, and those high heels.
A sheik rode slowly down the street,
XX-iith his Ford and great large feet.
He stopped the lizzy with a jerk?
Oh, Boy! he was the soda clerk.
He pulled aside and sang with glee,
VX'hile Maud walked up for him to see.
She spoke of shows and dances, too,
And told of things she'd like to do.
He said, "Come on, we'll take a spin."
She climbed over the frame and then jumped in.
lt gave a chug and wouldn't start-
He cranked and cranked, and pulled each part.
lt started off with a shake and a squeak,
The Ford it shook all over the street,
They kept it going and all did pass,
He gave a jerk, and stepped on the gas.
Then all of a sudden, they missed the bridge,
The Ford jumped over and missed the ridge.
The water came up and still got fuller.
And this is the end of the sheik and Maud Muller.

A Midsummer Melody by Smith
T XYAS out in the "great open spaces where men are men and women do all the
work." The sheriff was expectorating exactingly with fastidious ferociousness
in front of "Evans' Cafe for Coffee", formerly called "The Roaring Rumble."
Up galloped Peter Pedigree, the Mercury Magnet. He was covered with dirty
dust, and worm-eaten whiskers denoted horrible hours of wretched worry,
"My boy is bombedf' he artfully articulated as the slovenly sheriff merrily mas-
ticated. "My wife is warped and my Herbert is hyphenatedf'
"XVho worked this woeful wantonness?" the sheriff spit in space. "Do you know
the dirty devil who perforce performed this ace ?"
"Yea,', answered the magnanimous magnet, clutching his slippery saddle horn.
'fl am the rotten rotter who slyly solved my family's tiresome troubles."
"Youl" spurted forth the sheriff as the puny posse armed. "You defied the l.aws
of l,ove 'and harmed your helpless hopefuls."
"Il I! I!" shouted shriekingly the Mercury Merchant.
"Al, K. lf' purposely popped a burnt up bystander as the sheriff shot him slowly.
"Then die you don't," this from the sheriff, "for your willing wife was my sister's
offspring in the Spring of '9S."
"Saved!,' the mourning magnet rolled forth in blares of brass-and he shot the
stunning sheriff in the middle of the pass.

IRATIC stories, like people, have something in common.
I have never quite discovered what quality is general to us all but I do know
what phase is common to all pirate stories. If you have ever probed the delicious
depths of these sea-robber tales you will find on page 361 for whatever the last page
of the book isj that the pirate wins from his rival.
Now far be it from me to go against this established fact, however, perhaps because
of the difference of this tale it may interest you, as is its purpose. 1 will tell it to
you as it was related to me in the gnarled Old Kingstone's Tavern when we were seated
at one of its knife scarred tables talking over clay mugs of fiery rum.
lt was scarred old johnny, his voice cracking like dry autumn leaves under foot--
steps, who told me the history of Captain Richard of the Revenge.
The Revenge was lying at half-mast not far off the coast of Argentine, it was a
massive ship built of strong wood darkened from exposure, its deck was laden with
glistening gold and silver booty, for the Captain was a great pirate. His own cabin
was filled with all kinds of treasures hard fought for and as fiercely defended.
This spring day the sea was calm, it was late in the afternoon, long blue shadows
stretched over the deck which swarmed with gaudily but just as dirtily dressed pirates.
Many of them stopped at the sight of one of their companions, a formidable man, forc-
ing with great difficulty an extremely unwilling female toward the Captain's cabin.
He finally brought her to the door of the cabin where he knocked apparently
reluctantly. The eyes of all on deck watched with some awe and evident respect for
the appearance of their Captain.
His heavy boots thumped menacingly on the cabin floor as he approached the
door which he jerked open with terrible determination. Then he leaned disinterest-
edly against the left side of the door frame.
The warm sun shone benevolently on the pirate chief. He was a small man,
somewhat generously proportioned with a decided Napoleonic appearance-a rosy
complexion, kindly blue eyes and wavy yellow hair added much to his splendidly
He looked at the girl with an uncertain expression meant to convey displeasure.
XYhich was difficult, for the woman before him was startlingly lovely. Her hair was
chestnut, her eyes a soft brown and her lips were scarlet. She was tall and willowy.
"Did you have to take her FH asked the awe-inspiring Captain nervously.
"Ay, Sir, and there is another belowg you see after we killed all the crew we
couldn't leave the women alone on the ship!" answered the pirate humbly.
"Uh, what a lovely, handsome, pirate Captain you arel I'm sure you're not afraid
of anything!" offered the prisoner.
At which the Captain grinned unromantically for if the truth be told the Captain
entertained a terrible fear of ghosts. And the Captain, satisfied with this prisoner.
would not even see the other one, but she saw him and found out a great number of
things about him.
She learned that he was afraid of ghosts, that he greatly admired her fellow pris-
oner, and more than that she finally came to the knowledge that she loved him. As
soon as she found out the last fact she planned a robbery more brilliant than any
Not many days passed before rumors spread through the ship that a ghost had made
its appearance on board The Revenge. Some of the sailors had seen its lovely white
arm, others had heard its voice, but none had seen its face.
Meanwhile the Captain and the prisoner he had seen, whose name was Rosy,
had become excellent friends. It was Rosy who told the Captain of the ghost and
thereby had the unheard-of pleasure of watching him turn embarrassingly white. But
this bold buccaneer soon regained his composure and rather timidly some time after-
ward asked her to marry him and she, enthralled by his manhood, accepted him.
That same evening a terrible storm arose. The wind shrieked madly around the
Captainis cabin. The rain beat with a heavy relentless monotony upon the roof. The
entire ship and sea was shrouded in a deathly blackness save for a feeble open flame
from a candle in the Captain's room.
That mighty pirate was seated on a rustic stool in his cabin gazing impatiently
about, his mind rehearsing the doleful tales of the ship's latest visitor, a ghastly ghost.
The Captain could imagine its canny bones and the hollow holes where its eyes had
been with wonderful exactness considering that he had never in all his healthy life
Suddenly breaking upon the solemn stillness of the room sounded the shrill creak-
ing of the floor boards. The light of the candle flickered dully, then went out. The
horrified Captain heard a silken voice say, "You must not marry Rosy, you must
marry mel" After which a grave-like stillness reigned. Finally the Captain rose to
his feet and rushing blindly to the door bumped forcefully into some one or some thing
which fell to the floor with a thud.
Thereupon he went to the table to light the candle. It burnt forth this time with
a brilliant light. It reflected on the floor where lay a lovely creature with violet eyes
and black curls. The Captain had never imagined such a glorious ghost!
And which did he marry, you ask, the ghost or Rosy? XVhich do you think this
big, bold, terrible pirate would? l'. HEEKMAN, '24-.

I HATE BOYS
A little forewarning is always wise,
The names herein are all mere lies.
Clara Marie was liked by a Boy,
He secretly was her pride and joyg
But aloud she spoke with scorn to spare,
"He's only a boy. XVhat do I care?"
But each party and dance revue
Found her sweet as honey dew,
She'd lift her eyes and smile at him,
Showing a dimple in her chin.
At first Bill would be cold, you know,
Till Clara would say in voice so low,
"You'll like the dance next week with Lou.
Then Bill replies: "I'm going with you!
But once before a dance revue
Bill stayed cold and went with Lou.
Clara cried till her eyes grew red,
Then swore off boys, and went to bed.
If at this story your lips curl,

If he finds his son
Has not beaten him to it.
SHARP click of an opening lock awaked the convict from his reverie and he
looked up as another man was thrust into the cell. The newcomer walked to
the hard bed, and without a word laid his head on his hands and sighed.
"NYhat cha in for ?'l he was asked.
"Safe crackin', and you?"
"Oh, peddlin' dope, forgin' checks an' several other thingsf'
Now the ice was broken and the prisoners began to confide in one another, inci-
dents of narrow escapes, captures, aml accidents followed. After a while both men
were silent, but at last one spoke:
"Oh, God! l'd give a year of my life to be free just one day, the tenth of this
month. Listen! Ten years ago my pal and I parted ways, he to work the missionary
field and I to work in a bond house. As we parted, in a joking way, we agreed to meet
at Lincoln Monument, Chicago, ten years later to the day,

ment on I lived only to repay him and now I have the money and can't meet himf'
As he finished tears poured from the other man's eyes. He looked up to see the
cause of the emotion. A radiant light seemed to shine on the other as he said:
"Darn your hide, Jim, itls good to know that you appreciated itf' The newcomer
stared at hearing his name. and the other continued: "Mani donit stare so hard, I'm

"AN ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF FOOTBALL" V
CROXYD had gathered to watch the famous steeplejack as he worked on the
church spire more than tive hundred feet in the air.
Suddenly, without a sound to warn him of his danger, one of the ropes
which held up the scaffolding snapped and the man fell like a stone to the street
below. Then, before any one could rush forward to lift up his poor, broken body a
huge truck turned a corner sharply and before it could stop, ran over him.
VVomen in the crowd screamed, one or two fainted, and even the burly policeman
who pushed his way towards him was a pale greenish hue,
Then wonder of wonders, just as the clanging ambulance drew up and stopped,
the young man rolled over, got to his feet, and brushed off his clothes!
"Stop, man," stuttered the officer, 'fyou're hurt."
"Not muchf' replied the steeplejack. "My dear fellow, it would take more than
that to hurt me. I used to play football on the Triadelphia team."

T XY 1" XS a dark dismal night. Heavy clouds hung low and black over the trees.
Lightning flashed in the distance and echoing thunder rumbled through the heav-
ens. A small stream, dashing down its swollen course added its roaring to the
night. The wind whistled and sighed through the swaying trees. All was dreary and
black save for a lone, dim light shining from a window of a small house, swaying and
creaking in the furious wind, in a secluded part of the sighing valley. Drawing near
the lighted window was the dark form of a man, his hat drawn over his head nearly
touching his tightly fastened coat. l-lead down, he pushed against the rushing wind
to gain the shelter of the little cottage. He reached it and paused for a moment near
the lighted window. lnside under a shaded light four men were intently bent over
a small table mysteriously occupied. All looked thoughtfully and anxiously at the table
before them. Now and then one or another would take a small object from the table.
examine it carefully, put it down and resume his thoughtful appearance. VVhat was
on the table? A heavily built man sitting with his back to the window hid the greater
part of the table. The one outside listened intently, in lulls of the storm, with his ear
close to the pane. All was silent within. The four solemn men were silent but care-
fully and anxiously interested in what was on the table. Suddenly one threw up his
hands, a look of victory and joy flashing onto his face. "l've got it! Mah Jong! l'm
out!" AI. XYTLSON XYATERHOUSE, '24.
HERE are three kinds of bridges, faj steel, Cbj tooth, and fcj game.
The steel bridge is usually built over a cavity in the earth's surface and then
water is poured under it. The cavity is not always necessary, but all well behaved
bridges of steel have them. Foot bridges are generally more than twelve inches fl2"j
long, and people pay to walk on them. 'Bridges are also put under street cars. So far
the submarine has not hurt business.
The tooth bridge is different from the steel bridge, but the cost is almost the
same. These, too, are put over cavities. But one doesn't walk on this bridge, one
eats on it. Sometimes tooth bridges fall through, or tear off at the piers. This hap-
pens especially when one eats hard taffy. I knew a man who had an automobile go
over his tooth bridge once. They buried him the next day. Dentists live on these
bridges, and take the toll. They make them out of gold. If Bryan's Free Silver idea
had gone through we might have had all our dentist work done for nothing.
Some people think that game bridge is a pastime. It's really only used to fill up
gaps in conversation. You could almost say conversational cavities. I played game
bridge once, but when they told me l was "Uummy', I got sore and went home.

They expect all the follows to show them some time
And live for a month without spending a dime.
They are the most impossible of the human race
And think they can exist on their lmeautiful faeef
I hate 'em.

lDon't let the women use you for their toysg
.lust keep your distance when you see them around,

Should this poem appear in print
I would give my friends a hint
That I was the talented author
And to write it wasn't any hother.
I'd say, 'flt 1sn't very goodg
I eould write hetter if I would."
Then Ild autograph the poem in their hooks,
Because an autographed poem much better looks.
Thev'd say, "It's fine, it eanlt he matehedg-"
But-don't count your ehiekens hefore thev're hatched.

S THE demand for practical work seems of much more importance, our time is
limited for speed practice although some time is spent along this line. lt is
lmetter to be almle to operate the three machines which we use, Underwood,
Remington, and Royal, at average speed with accuracy than to operate one machine
at more than average speed. XYQ do not know which make of machine our students
will find in the ofhce to which they go, so it is lrest to be prepared.
Two years ago a typewriting contest was held in XYest Virginia for the first
time. Last May we entered for the contest with gratifying results.

LESTER BEEC RO FT
In the happy hustle of graduation
we pause to recall one who was with
us during' our Freshman year. Shortly
before school opened for our Sopho-
more year, we were saddened to hear
of Lester's death. He was one who
was cheerful at all times. XVQ regret
that one so dear could not live to
Eraduate with us.
Tllli CLASS O17 '24.
The program of studies of the Triadelphia llistrict High School consists of live
curricula-General, lndustrial Arts, llome Economics, Agricultural, and Commercial.
A pupil may change from one curriculum to another if he chooses at the beginning of
the school year, and we recommend that he change if his plans, tastes. and attainment
warrant it. A scattering of courses to "get through" is discouraged. lt is well to
have a major or two and a minor or two so there may be an organized dehnite cur-
A large number of our graduates go to institutions of higher learning. The lists
of graduating classes show 50 to SO per cent attending such institutions. Because of
this the General curriculum leads in number of students, however, graduates from any
of the other four usually have little trouble entering a college freshman class. The
Agricultural Curriculum enrolls the smallest number, yet it can point with pride to
graduates of that course who are successfully managing farms, putting to practice
many things learned here.
Many courses are elective. The aim is to supply the need of the pupil. A pupil
taking regularly four courses each year would be compelled to stay in school nearly
twelve years to complete all the work offe ed here. Four years of English and one
of American History are the only constant 4. Physical Education is required twice
each week of all pupils except Seniors. Organized work is going on all the time in
the gymnasium or on the playground. The following units are offered:

STONE AND THOMAS' SEWING CONTEST
lFTY girls of Triadelphia District High School entered the school sewing contest
this year. The time allowed was short and the girls worked before school, at
noon. and after school, as well as in the regular class periods, showing school
spirit equal to that preceding a football game.
Of the S5120 in prizes offered to girls of XYheeling schools, Triadelphia won 572.
Mary Beck winning the S15 prize. Eleanor Adams, Martha Ellen Petticord, Bernice
Brennan, Catherine Burruss, Ella Springer. Lucille Speiser, Katherine Schaaf, Virginia
Alger, Carolyn McLain, and Marian Mahan won S5 prizes. Agnes Anderson, VVilma
Riggs, Marie Folmar, Mabel Hanke, Nancy Snyder, Zelda Sligar, Marie Stuler, Phala
lyader, Ruth Rice, Lillie Lydick, Anna Knislia. .leannette Folmar, Edith Gibson, Hazel
Cunningham, Mildred Committe, Elizabeth Linton, and Anna Phillips won Sl prizes.
State Literary Contest
RIAIJIQLPHIA was represented in the preliminaries of the State Literary Con-
test, held at New Martinsville, by three people. 5
This contest is held annually, and all high schools, desiring to do so, send rep-
resentatives to the district contests held at different places over the state.
The winners of the district contests go to Morgantown where the winners there
receive a scholarship for four years in Xllest Virginia University. There are four
scholarships given, one for essay, one for oration, one for extemporaneous speech, and
one for debate. Our essayist, Charlotta Crow, was ill, and was unable to go to New
Qur debator was Mary Casey. The question for debate was "Resolved, That the
United States Should Pinter the League of Nations." The debators drew for the side
of the question they should speak on. Mary drew the affirmative. Although she had
a very good argument, she was defeated in the preliniinaries.
Bernard Maury drew for his subject for the extemporaneous speech, "Should the
Nation Attempt to Compensate the Soldiers of the Late XYar by Giving Them a
Money Allowance F" Bernard went through the preliminaries with flying colors, and
in the finals at New Martinsville he spoke on "The Nature and lixtent of Child
l.abor in NVQ-st Yirginiaf' He was defeated by a boy from St. Marys, one of the
high schools on our exchange list. After hearing Bernard speak, we certainly congrat-
ulate St. Marys on its good speakers.
The oration was ably taken care of by Ralph Miller. The subject of his oration
was, "President Harding." Ralph went through the preliminaries and the finals at
New Martinsville and represented Triadelphia at Morgantown.
This is the first time we have sent a representative to Morgantown. Ralph did
not win, we are sorry to say, but from all reports his speaking was very much to
be praised and perhaps next year Ralph, as a Senior, may attain what he worked for
-so diligently and effectively-this year.
Q05 fs N
Triadelphia has had some especially line captains this year. Not only are they
fine athletes but all of them are natural leaders.
Merle Thompson, captain of our football team, was always full of fight and pep
but never did he let this interfere with his cool-headed leadership. Many times when
things looked dark for our team, an encouraging word from "Pookl' would arouse their
spirit to carry on.
For our basketball captain, who proved to be the backbone of the team, we had
Bob Rodgers. His position was guard, but that did not keep him from "loopin' " them
in from the middle of the floor. NVhenever a basket was needed or some good defen-
sive work Bob always came through with the goods.
Bill Schambra is our track captain, an abler one cannot be found. He is experi-
enced in all branches of track and is therefore qualified to dispense much good advice.
Our baseball captain is one who knows that sport from A to Z. Xlhenever a com-
plicated problem, such as always arises in that game, presents itself Bill Brice can
always solve it.
Girls' basketball was captained this year by "Don Davies. Our basketball team
this year suffered much from last year's graduation, but despite their inexperience, a
plucky little team was led by their capable leader,
Since Coach Tom Hill entered our doors two years ago, athletics has grown more
popular and larger squads have turned out than in any other two years of the history
of this school.
Mr, Hill is experienced in nearly all branches of sports. NVhilc he does not specialf
ize in any one sport he gives his attention to every detail and every individual member
of his squads.
Triadelphia has advanced to the position of one of the largest schools, athletically
speaking, in the Ohio Yalley. Mr. Hill believes in fair play and will not tolerate anyf
thing but clean athletics. Through his exertions we have also had several new sports
inaugurated. Altogether athletics has progressed at a great speed under his supers
Mr. Hill has been ably assisted by Mr. Mcfuskey. Mr. Mcfuskey is very popu-
lar and has had a good deal of experience, having been a member of different college
teams. It is especially fortunate that we have had Mr. McCuskey as an assistant
coach because his principles coincide with those of Mr. Hill. XVe owe a good deal to
Mr. McCuskey because the service that he has rendered was not for personal gain
but for the pure love of sports.
Miss Darrah, the girls' coach, has been with us for several years. She has de'
veloped many successful teams and has instituted many new sports for the girls.
Miss Darrah has handled the different girls' teams very capably and has created
a greater interest for athletics in the girls. Miss Darrah stands for the very most
up-to-date principles in physical education for girls. '
One of the people who are going to be missed when the class of 1924 has been
graduated is Harold Bycott. our "Spigot." Harold has been our cheer-leader ever
since his sophomore year and the cheery, peppy yells of old Tridel owe much to his
infectious good humor and skilled leadership.
He had two able assistants: namely. Stewart Brown and Bernard Maury.
This able crew of cheer-leaders made the rooters cheer with great force and pep.
Stewart and Bernie will be here next year and should give the team good support.
NE of the most successful football seasons Triadelphia District High School has
ever had was the season of 1923. Four outstanding events took place, three of
which our teams have never accomplished before and one of which has never
been accomplished by any team before. ln this season we had a man chosen as an
all-state end, lidward Yasheresse, our captain-electg we won the city championship:
and lVheeling was beaten for the first time by our football team. The feat which no
other team has yet accomplished and which our team has succeeded in doing was
defeating XYheeling and l.insly in the same season.
The fact that there were two men available for every position on our team reveals
that footl'all is gaining in popularity at Triadelphia. Larger squads come out for foot-
ball and larger crowds turn out to see our games every year.

llli fourth year for boys' class basket--ball was a very successful one. There was
much rivalrv lzetween the four teams. The juniors won the championship but
were closelxi followed bv the Freshmen team.
The girls' class basket-liall was very spirited and the games were well played.
The Seniors carried off the honors. The second place was given to the Sophs and
Freshmen who were tied. Every team put out its best efforts
to win. The games
of both the girls' and boys' class teams were arranged in a schedule similar to last
year's with each team playing every other team twice. This has proven very satis-

ATHLETICS IN THE SPRING OF 1923
S THE TRIADELPHIAN goes to press before the spring athletic activities of
that year are completed, in fact, before they really begin, no record of spring
athletics has ever been a part of the annual publication. The pictures of the
teams for the current spring season are generally all that have ever been published.
Therefore, it has been deemed particularly proper to initiate a new idea in this
annual, and that is a summary of athletics of a year ago, that otherwise would never
have been recorded.
T. IJ. I-l. S, continued to major in this line of sport, bringing out a well balanced
team, that boasts as its most important victory a 78 to 47 score over Wheeling High,
at XVheeling, April 30. The Pike team showed a decided superiority over its rivals,
taking first place in the 100 yard dash, 220 yard dash, quarter mile, half mile, high
hurdles, low hurdles, discus, shot, and relay, besides other places in these same events.
Captain jimmie Potter, Bob Blake, Mahoney, Schambra, XYallace, and Bell were
the principal point winners in this meet.
In the Qhio Yalley meet, held on the Bethany College track, Triadelphia finished
third. The meet was held in a downpgiur of rain, which hindered the best efforts of
our athletes. Schambra took three seconds: high and low hurdles and the high jump,
Wfallace second at the discus, tiiffin second in quarter mile, Mahoney second in the
mile, and Blake second in the 100 yard dash. The relay cup came to Triadelphia
through the efforts of the winning relay team, Lesh, Miller, Giffin and Goldinger.
The first appearance of the team was at the XY. K Interscholastic, held at XVash-
ington, May 19, where amid very strong competition offered by about thirty schools,
our team captured fourth place, a very satisfactory showing. The outstanding feaf
tures of the day were the running of Deringer, who took second in the low hurdles,
Schambra's second in the high hurdles, Mahoney's third place in the half mile, and
XYallace's second in the discus.
Ile have the distinction with Martins Ferry of staging the first interscholastic
tennis match in the valley. Our meet was held at Martins Ferry, T. IJ. Il. S. win-
ning by the score of -l to 1. Arkle, Mcflelland, Smith, and Petticord made up our
Triadelphia also put a baseball team on the field, playing one game a week during
the season. The schedule was as follows:
T. 10, XYarwood 1.
T. 9' XVarwood 10.
'I. 3, Hundred 7.
T. 22, XYest Liberty H. 3.
T. 11, West Liberty N. 11 fcalled on account of darknessj.
The team lined up follows :-Springer, catcher, Murrin and Howard, pitchers,
Ellis, first base, Thompson, second l:ase, Cushnie, short stop, Vasheresse, third base,
Stein, left field, Brice, center field, Guenther ,right field.
THIS YEAR'S BASEBALL
The baseball team this year was built up around eight old men with a generous
supply of new candidates to help along. At present fat the time this goes to pressj
the prospects seem bright and already we have defeated Follansbec by a close score.
The schedule is a good one and will prove very interesting, we feel sure,
SENIORS TAKE INTER-CLASS TRACK MEET 1924
In the inter-class track meet held after school on XVednesday, April 9, Friday,
April 11, and Monday, April 1-1, the Seniors came out on the big end with a total of
62 points. Bill Schambra was the big gun of the meet, making 24 points.
The Juniors took second place with So points. Next were the Sophomores with
-TM points. The Freshman took last place with 3M points.
Some promising men demonstrated their ability in this meet, Roy Mcfuskey,
Archie Giffin, L. B. Goldinger, Bill Mahoney, Howard Lesh, joe Potter, Bill Rempe.
George XVa1lace, Edward Yasheresse, John Ebeling, XYilliam Yinall and others.

THE RED AND BLACK
Of all the colors bright and gay,
In schools both near and far away,
Are two that seem to us most fair
XVhich all "Tridel" delights to wear.
Of all the colors' blended hues
'Tis these that still our hearts enthuse.
XYhile truth and loyalty prevail
Our love for them will never fail.
They represent our school so dear,
And Will, through many an after year.
XVe'll then recall the days of yore,
And wish we them could live once more.
And later in life's toilsome race
XVe'll love to think of that dear place.
Our minds shall fondly Wander back,
And long for dear old Red and Black.

As it is always easier to get a position when one already has one, it is
likewise easier to get money after you have some.
A wonderful start in life is to have a comfortable bank balance. Having
money enables one to take advantage oi business opportunities which
he otherwise would have to pass up. Many a man has seen newer
people admitted to his employer's tirm simply because he had no money
to put into it, Such men always remain employes.

Let s be sensible about this thing and save some money.
