Page Seventeen Page Eighteen To the Class Mates of '24 Four years have rounded life's fair bend, On time's untiring pinions, Since first we met as friend to friend, Gave o'er our heart's dominions. The road before seemed clear and bright, Who ever thought of trouble? We shuffled on from left to right, Thinking life was just a bubble. Three years roll by and on we pass From curiosity to wonderg We journey on like any class Though oft' our efforts blunder. When one had luck ,we all were glad And laughed at Fortune's frowningg When one had sorrow, all were sad, All oppositions drowning. Disputes we had, and bitter hours Which threaten friendship rending, But these were brief like summer showers, In firmer union ending. But now this path that stretched so bright, To many a road's just startingg The cry rings out, "To Left! To Right!" And this is friendship's parting. We know not to what foreign strand These many paths may reach, But we move out with that glorious band To fields that wait for each. We can't take, in this tide of life, Our class flower and colors everg But our Motto's good for any strife, "Forward Ever, Backward Never." Relentless Fate cannot alone These many friendships sever, If each holds place within the heart, We'll still fare on together. E. M. B., Class '24. Senior Class History In the Year of Our Lord, Nineteen Hundred Twenty, eighteen noisy, bashful, freckled-faced freshmen thronged to the halls of Trivoli Com- munity high School to seek further knowledge. The entire class consisted of: Chester Anderson Mildred H.iQggs Laura Perkins Edna Baird Verna Holt Ralph Pettow Elma Brooks Charles Hovenden Raymond Pettow Russell Haller Mabel Kimzey Mildred Pillman Velma Harper Junius McCreight Caroline Ramshaw Harley Haynes Letha McKeever Merle Williams Our instructors were C. J. Keel, Principal, and Miss Helen Cornel- ius, Teacher. During the second week of school we organized with Chester And- erson, Pres., Elma Brooks, Vice-Pres., Charles Hovenden, Sec., and Vel- ma Harper, Treas. We chose, "Forward Ever, Backward Never," as our class motto: and the Pink Carnation as our class iiower. At the end of the first semester, Ralph and Raymond Pettow and Junius McCreight discontinued school. After New Years, Mary Opie joined us, making an enrollment of sixteen. In the spring Russell Haller and Harley Haynes ceased coming. Thus ended our first year as freshmen in T. C. H. S. CHAPTER II In the second year of our glorious educational career, only eleven freshmen returned to T. C. H. S. as sophomores, Edna Baird, Caroline Ramshaw and Letha McKeever not returning. Our instructors this year were Merrill Stephen, Principal, Miss Helen Cornelius and Russell Peters, teachers. Our class organization this year consisted of: Chester Anderson, Pres., Elma Brooks, Vice-Pres., Velma Harper, Sec.-Treas., and Miss Helen Cornelius, Class Adviser. On Hallowe'en, we entertained at a jolly little initiation party, the freshman class of sixteen members. CHAPTER III All the Sophomores of '21 and '22 returned to T. C. H. S. to cast their lot as the Junior Class of l22 and '23, Our class organized with Chester Anderson, Pres., Elma Brooks, Vice-Pres., Laura Perkins, Sec., Velma Harper, Treas., and Mr. Cletus German, Class Adviser. Our instructors this year were Victor Nutter, Principal, Mrs. Glenn Griggs Render, Miss Helen Cornelius, Cletus German and Arthur M. Wells, teachersg also Raymond Allen, Coach and Physical Director. Page Nineteen ----- --We ---------- - During the basket-ball season we operated a hot-dog, candy, pop- corn and soda-pop stand with the profits of which we gave a royal cel- ebration, namely the Junior-Senior reception. This ended our Junior year with planning by day and dreaming by night of the mighty things we should do when we were Seniors-we the Class of '24. CHAPTER IV Are we Seniors? Yes! Yes! Seniors of the Class of '24. This year our enrollment is very small, only eight, while four years ago, when we first came to T. C. H. S. to cast our lot among those enrolled in this school, we were eighteen in number-what a change in only four short, but ltappy school years! But those years were not all pleasrre and fun. We, too, had our hardships and trials. Was it not worth it? It certainly was. For now we, the Senior Class of '24, are better equipped for the hardships and trials of the future. Someday out in the world, we will look back upon our high school days and think of our friendships, companionships and our comrades throughout those four years of school, under the sheltering wings of dear of T. C. H. S. We will also think of those who made it possible that we might at- tend this school. We will look back with a thanksgiving in our hearts to those teachers who strove to pass on to us their knowledge, and to those teachers who explained patiently that which we could not clear- ly understand. All these things we will think of and probably appreci- ate more highly in later life. Our entire class enrollment this year is: Chester Anderson E'ma Brooks Velma Harper Mildred Higgs Charles Hovenden Mabel Kimzey Mildred Pillman Merle Williams Our class organization consists of: Chester Anderson, Pres., Mabel Kimzey, Vice-Pres., Elma Brooks, Sec., Velma Harper, Treas., and Mr. A. M. Wells, Class Adviser. 'Our instructors this year are A. M. Wells, Principal, Miss Helen Cornelius, Miss Olive Harding and Russell Peters, teachers. We have always tried to live up to our motto: "Forward Ever, Backward Never." If we have failed, it has not been through inten- tion. We have done our best. We are grieved to leave this school-the only high school we have ever attended and probably the only one we will ever attend as students. We have made many friends and learned many lessons, however dear the cost, and now we must say "Au revoir!" A M. M. K., Class of ,24. Fug: Twenty - ------- --aa ------- Senior Class Prophecy Early in September in the year of 1934, I decided to go back to my old home town after touring in the west. I found that many improvements had been made, the improvement that attracted my attention most and perhaps the greatest, was a new high school building. I learned that there was an enrollment of about two hundred and fifty students. Having been a teacher myself, I was much interested in school workg so I decided to visit the school. Upon doing so, I found one ot my old classmates, Elma Brooks, teaching the English courseg she said she had been teaching there for three years. Of course I was anxious to know just where all of the other members of the class of '24 were, so I asked her if she knew where they were. I learned that Chester Anderson was practicing law and was mak- ing a great success, Merle Williams was a broker for the Peoria Board of Trade and was considered the best in the corporation. Elma said she had talked to Mabel Kimsey a few weeks before, and that she was teaching the primary department in Chillicothe. She said she had not heard of Charles Hovenden nor the rest of the mem- bers of our class. I had talked to Charles while I was in California the preceding monthg he was overseer of an orange grove, had a beau- tiful home and had married a girl who was a wonderful helpmate. After spending a few days in Trivoli, I went to Peoria. Going down Main street, I noticed a sign bearing the name, i'Madam Higgs, Beauty Parlor". I wondered if this might not be my former classmate Mildredg so I went in and found that it was. She had gone to Chicago, specialized in the Beauty Culture, and had a very good business in the city of Peoria. Mabel Kimsey, having heard that I was in Peoria, wrote me a letter, saying that she was enjoying her work very muchg from her letter I learned that Mildred Pillman was working with the telephone exchange in one of the offices in Chicago. I realized that I knew where all my classmates were and that they were all doing well. I, too, decided to go back to work: so I took up a position with the Western Union oflice. V. P. H., '24.

After a series of interviews with our noted physicians, the members of the Faculty, we have realized that our constitutions are fast fading away under the strain of Physics, English, Histories and other similar maladies. Therefore, We, the graduating class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-Four, do hereby authorize this last Will and Testament, whereby we may reward and forewarn our friends of the difficulties ac- companying this dignified station of life. First upon our final departure from T. C. H. S., we, the Graduating Class of '24, do give and bequeath to our dear, beloved younger bro- thers and sisters, the Juniors, the back row of seats in the study hall. The above said seats are guaranteed to be the most comfortable in the school, and are to be used only during your brief and brilliant career as Seniors. I To the long-suffering Faculty, we give and bequeath forever- Peace of Mind.

I, Velma Harper, do give and bequeath my place in a Ford road- ster, to Violet Quinn. I, Mildred Higgs, do give and bequeath my solemnness and ability to behave, to Frank Ramshaw. I, Charles Hovenden, do give and bequeath my quiet disposition and bashfulness in English classes, to Ira Phillips. Don't misuse it. I, Mabel Kimzey, do give and bequeath my habit of holding hands with Russell Bontz, to anyone desiring it. Come early, avoid the rush. I, Mildred Pillman, do give and bequeath my ability to argue with the teacher, to Edgar Flinn, also ten inches of my surplus height. He needs both. I, Merle Williams, do give and bequeath my sweet, base voice to Grayton Gerber, to be used in place of whispering in music time. VVe hereby revoke and annul all former wills and appoint Miss Cornelius as sole executor of this, our last Will and Testament. fSfgg1edJ SENIOR CLASS, 1924. Per C. D. H.

At first we glanced around the rooms with shy and timid eyes that met eyes, to us of mockery. After the initiation party however, we felt more at ease. We set our minds to work on new problems of life. In General Science, a study-5 which nearly all of us were interested in, more or less, We tried to behave as well as we could, but due to several sophomores, we often meddled with laboratory necessities, among which were some very dangerous articles. It wasn't any wonder that our teachers often became provoked at us. We organized during the first month of school with DeForest Hitchcock as president, Bruce Turl as vice-president, Fern Higgs as sec- retary-treasurer. So arrived September of '23 when eight of our Freshmen of '22 returned to dear old T. C. H. S. to begin their careers as Sopho- mores. Nathan Doty and Hazel Bartley did not remain with us in our Sophomore year. Hazel went to seek her fortune at Peoria high. Al- giough we lost two good classmates, we gained a new friend, Dayton erber. During our two years of high school, we have entered into the ath- letics and literary fields. We are setting our minds to better things, trying to get all the knowledge we possibly can, that when the year of '26 arrives, we will have good weapons with which to fight the battles of everyday life. Our class at present consists of: Violet Quinn Richard Gregory Fern Higgs Bruce Turl Wilhelmina Bruninga Dayton Gerber Thelma Ewalt DeForest Hitchcock Our officers are: President, DeForest Hitchcock, Vice-President, Thelma Ewaltg -Sec.-Treas., Wilhelmina Bruningag and Class Advisor, Miss Olive L.

Following four long mlonths of vacation, twenty bashful boys and girls registered at Trivoli Community High School in September, with the hopes of some day completing the four years of high school and passing on to something higher. The class enrollment was: ' Berwyn Anderson Addison Williamson Ruth Karstetter Warren Sandall Beulah Hurt Eugene Connell Russell Turl Lucile Brooks Lloyd Richardson Francis Ramshaw Mildred Hammond Grayton Gerber Earl Baird Theodosia Anderson Paul Dikeman Page Thirty-four Lester McCann Margaretta Morin Miriam Bourne Wayne McKeever Gladys Opie After a few days of school the 'following officers were elected: President, Warren Sandallg Vice-President, Mirian Bourne, Secretary, Eugene Connell, Treasurer, Paul Diekmang and Class Advisor, Russell Peters. A. L. B., Class of '27. Freshman Class Poem Of twenty keen members, we now will tell A story, quite clearly and well. There is Warren R. Sandall, of President fame, Whose initiation bravery shows he is game. Addison VVilliamson has a Ford car, And his chauffeur ability is quite above par. Grayton Gerber, a good looking chap, Is occasionally found on any girl's lap. Lloyd Richardson, 'tis true, goes to this school, And winds up knowledge like thread on a spool. Frank Ramshaw, the cut up of class, Isn't quite sure that he'll pass. Ruth Karstetter, quiet and fair, Has strange approval of smooth red hair. Gladys Opie, our musician, you know, Always in demand where'er she may go. Beulah Hurt lives six miles away, But always has a word to say. We have a boy named Russell Turl, Whose main attraction is a-Sophomore girl. There's Berwyn Anderson, with his rousing yells, And earnest efforts, so sure to tell. Theodosia Anderson's a fan this year, But her interest's not all for her brother, we hear. Page Thirty-tive Miriam Bourne's our bright little star, Who's liked by all, both near and far. Mildred Hammond, called Midgie for brief, Well liked, of course, is our honest belief . Lester McCann likes spelling so well, That he thoroughly hates 'ie's', 'ei's' and two 'll's'. Lucile Brooks, without a complaint or whine Records her words in penmanship fine. Margaretta Morin, a lass so demure, Has a rep for talking at least secure. By his ready answer and careful attention, Wayne McKeever creates sensation. Eugene Connell delights in sweets, But never finds fun in giving treats. Earl studies the whole day through, Of time and labor he ne'er will rue. Paul Diekman, the last, but of course not least, Is on tap with a nickel when a man says feast. B. A. and E. C., Class Page Thirty six , of '27 fw eral 1.1 Pwffo 'l'hi1'tv- A 5 . For the Honor of the School Shorty Watson hailed from a cotton plantation in southern Ala- bama. He had finished grammar school at the age of fourteen, from a little county school, located on his father's plantation. There being no high school within a radius of thirty miles, his father decided to send him to his brother's place, at Bloomington, Ohio. Shorty readily agreed, and to that end he was enrolled in Bloom- ington High School for the next S91'I16St61',S work. He liked it very well, but he made few friends because of his sullen disposition. He was called "dead head" because he never seemed interested in any sports or liter- ary work. Two years passed away in the same manner. Then came the spring of the third year, when it was time to start training for track work. Shorty's friend and pal, Jack Snider, was the best athlete in Blooming- ton High School. He was on the football and basketball teams, and was an excellent man on the cinders for distance running. Jack tried every way possible to get Shorty to try out for the track team, but his efforts were in vain. He argued, coaxed and threatened him, but Shorty always said he couldn't be of any use to the school. Sometimes he would watch the boys practice, and lol one night even he went in a suit to act as pace setter for Jack. They trotted around the track several times, and to Jack's surprise, Shorty stayed very close to him. This encouraged Jack very much, and he tried hard- er than ever to persuade his pal into practicing with him, but he could generally be found rowing on the river or sleeping in the shade of the trees when the other boys were hard at work on the track. One day late in May, Bloomington High School, to all appearances, was in a state of great excitement. What was up? Why, everyone knows, this is the day set aside for the track meet with Bloomington's greatest rival-Blackburn. The afternoon came at last, hot and sultry. Jack was at his best, and as he mady ready to go for the afternoon's work, he looked about for Shorty. But no signs of him were to be found. As Jack was making his way across the campus toward the cinder oval, he passed beneath the shade of a large elm tree and there came upon Shorty. He lay stretched out, sound asleep, and the perfect image of laziness. Jack woke him and made the inquiry: "Aren't you coming to the track meet?" "Ho, hum! Nope, guess not, too darned hot," came the lazy reply, and he proceeded to stretch vigorously. Jack begged him to come, and finally he grabbed Shorty roughly by Page Thirty-eight - ------- --We ----------- the collar and fairly dragged him over to the dressing headquarters. Jack dressed and as he emerged from the dressing tent a shout went up from the amphitheatre. Shorty could be seen following closely behind, carrying a blanket for Jack to use between races. The first few events were successfully run off, but the most of the rooters were anxiously awaiting the Iinal event of the day, the mile run. Jack was to run the mile as well as the S80 yard and 220 hurdles. The 880 yard run was finished with Jack in the lead, making the score stand Bloomington 37, Blackburn 35. Then came the 220 hurdles. The ath- letes all took their places in the line, each awaiting the gun which was to start them. Finally the signal was given and the boys sped down the path, leaped the first row of hurdles, and were well on their way toward the goal. Jack led the way until the final hurdle was leaped, then he was seen to look Very pale, hop a short distance on one foot, and fall face downward upon the cinders. The other boys sped by him and Blackburn placed Iirst, with a Bloomington boy second. Jack was picked up and found to have a badly sprained ankle. He was given medical aid and a seat where he could watch the finish ofthe meet. It was indeed then that the faces of the Bloomington rooters wore rather a long, dismal look. One more event, the mile run, and their best and only runner out of the race with a sprained ankle. What was to be done? The score stood 40-all. Something must be done! It was then that the mind of Jack began to function properly. He crawled to Shorty's side and whispered in his ear. "Listen, Shorty old man, won't you run in my place?" "Naw," came the reply, UI ain't in shape." "But I know it's in you to go and win that race," Jack presisted, "if you won't run for me, wonit you for the honor of your school?" For the first time Shorty showed signs of interest. He sat up and thought, 'tFor the honor of the school." Those words were still ringing in his head. For the first time in his life he began to realize what that meant. The more he thought of it the more it hurt to think he was a slacker and at last he exclaimed: "I'll do it." Jack hastily called the coach to his side and persuaded him to let Shorty run the race. Enough said. Shorty donned a suit about three sizes too big for him and appeared on the track. Only a very faint cheer sounded as the race started. No one had any hopes of winning that race with Jack out of it. There were but two people who had hopes- those were Jack and Shorty. Shorty trailed along behind, running flat-footed and eating all the dust stirred up by the fellows ahead of him. He remained thus for three laps, and when the final lap was started, he still was ten yards behind. Then, as he passed the amphitheatre, he heard one voice, that of Jack, call faintly to him: Page Thirty-nine "Go Shorty, go! Go for the honor of the school!" Again that sound ran through Shorty's head. He made up his mind to win for Jack and-for the honor of the school. He threw back his head and ran as he never had before. Slowly at first, then more rapidly, he saw the distance shorten between himself and the fellow ahead of him. Then came the first exclamation from the bleachers. "Look, he's gaining," said one, "he might finish third or fourth yet." Then it seemed to Shorty that he could hear Jack still calling to him, "Go, Shorty, for the honor of the school." He leaned forward and gave his greatest eEort to his work. He passed them one by one until only one remained to bar his way to vic- tory. He was even with him now! It seemed as though it would end a tie! Ten yards to go. The crowd was cheering madly now as a last spark of hope flamed up and seemed .as though the day might yet be won. Now they had but five yards to go! With a final burst of speed and his greatest effort, Shorty crossed the line just six inches in advance of his Blackburn opponent. P It is needless to say that the crowd fairly went mad. And to the end of his school career, Shorty was never again found lying down, but was always up and ready to light, for the honor of HIS school. C. D. H., Class of '24. The History of the Trivoli Church The first pastor to hold meetings near the present site of Trivoli was Reverend Emory. He was a very able pastor-a statement which bears proof in the fact that he conducted successful meetings for over fifteen years. It was due to his work that we have the church that is now in this town. He was the rightful founder of the Methodist Epis- copal Church of Trivoli. Some of the other ministers who have been pastors in the Trivoli church are: Bourland, Haney, Gray, Underwood, Montague, Blout, and our present pastor, Rev. Ellinwood. In 1837, Reverend Emory began holding meetings in the school house, which had just been built where the cemetery is now located. In the spring of 1838 he -organized a Methodist church and services continued to be held in the school house. In 1840, Reverend Emory built a girl's seminary on the land oc- cupied by the home of Court Gillett and services were transferred from the school house to this building. The church used the seminary build- ing for over ten years. This building is still standing-the original frame, much of the same roof, and most of the floor have remained un- changed except to show marks which time always leaves. This building' Page Forty - -------- -We ----------- has some unusually good material in it. Some of the material was hauled from Chicago in a wagon. Mr. Gillett now occupies the building for a machine room. In November of 1851, Reverend Emory made a deed to the trustees of the church for the property now occupied by the present church. That winter material was cut out and framed for the new church of Trivoli. The men of the community spent much of their time preparing and building until in the summer the building now known as the "old church" was dedicated. On this very same porch, Mr. Lovejoy made his talk on the "Anti-Slavery Act." He was later killed at Alton, Illinois. Reverend Emory continued to preach until 1853, when Trivoli was made a part of the Farmington circuit. In 1865, Trivoli was made the head of a circuit. For sixty years, summer and winter, the people came together to worship at the old church. As the old building was beginning to be shattered, in 1909 it seemed advisable to build a new church. This had to be built to meet new methods and new conditions. Through the efforts of the pastors, Reverends R. N. Graham, Montague, and others, interest was created in the enterprise. A Ladies Aid Society was organized with Mrs. R. F. Graham as president. At the first meeting they pledged to raise five hundred dollars, providing a new church be built. To raise this sum, they had a picnic. At this picnic the men secured subscriptions amount- ing to a little over 331800. In 1910 the old church was sold and plans for a new building were accepted after much trouble. There was no resting of the saw and hammer till the new church was finished from top to basement. In October, 1910, Dr. A, T. Dwinell, with the assistance of the neighboring pastors and the entire community, dedicated the present building. I. P., '25, Page Forty-one fm? - ------- --aa .--.--- Long Trousers "Hey, Bill! Bill! Come here quick!" Jack Wallace, generally admitted the most popular senior at Dillion high school, thus excitedly hailed his friend Bill Warner who was resting on a rustic bench after a strenuous game of tennis. Bill, followed by a group of curious students who had been diverted from their various pursuits by the urgent call, hastened across the street where Jack could now be seen with hands holding his sides and laugh- ing uproaringly. The small crowd now assembled, gazed in wonderment at the strange spectacle before them. A battered old Ford car had drawn up at the curb where the rickety engine with a last feeble sputter fol- lowed by a seemingly revengeful bang! came to an abrupt stop. The sole occupant of the front seat removed his tattered straw hat, and, pushing back a mop of fiery red hair, vigorously wiped the perspiration from his forehead. The lad of gigantic stature standing easily six feet 'tall and boasting an avoirdupois of one hundred-eighty, gazed doubt- fully at the group of hilarious students. This young Hercules, clad in tight fitting knee pants, which caused the onlookers to hold their breath each time he stooped to pick up one of the many bundles of clothing that he was removing from the rear seat of the car, was indeed a fit subject for laughter. His car, a battered muddy, sway-back flivver of the 1910 model, seemed to hang its radiator in red hot shame. Led by Jack, the steadily increasing crowd followed the newcomer to the very door of the principal's oflice. Immediately after, "the greatest comic section on legs", as one fellow termed it, having fin- ished his business, had emerged from the door where the crowd quickly surrounded him. Seemingly much excited and Hattered by such un- expected attention, the lad answered as best he could, the questons which were fired at him with machine-gun rapidity. From his answers the knowledge was gleaned that his name was Alexander Washington Berkely, that he had spent all his life on his father's ranch, and that he owned the splendid automobile in which he had so triumphantly arrived. Strangely enough, the fellows feeling that some great joke was in the wind, ceased their laughter and gravely discussed with Alex-1 ander the possibilities of his becoming principal of the high school, for such he declared was his one ambition. Thus, Red, as he was thereafter known, made his initial appearance among the two thousand boys and girls at D. H. S. The next day, Red boldly followed the other freshmen to the class- room. He was shocked to notice that even the smallest fellow in the class, a brown eyed boy whose head barely reached Red's waist when they stood side by side at the black-board, was attired in long trousers. He also awoke suddenly to the fact that the girls after glancing quickly Page Forty-three in his direction, would retire behind the shelter of their books and papers to giggle and whisper among themselves. Red, with a determination so characteristic of all red headed lads left school immediately after that class was dismissed, and proceeded to make an inventory of his means foripurchasing a pair of long trou- sers. That morning he had spent his last cent for a money belt and had assured his fellow students, "it sure was a dandy". As he stared into window after window of the large department stores and viewed the price tags clinging to the different styles of long trousers, despair seized him. At last abandoning the business district, he trod through narrow streets and alleys into the slums of the city. Here he entered a low, dirty building over the door of which hung the glaring sign, "Loan Bank". When Red emerged from the pawn shop half an hour later, he left behind his old pants, the new money belt, his revolver and belt, but instead he boasted the possession of a pair of rusty khaki, long trousers. Minus his belt but re-enforced by the assurance of the Jew dealer that they were "just the fit", he held them up with one hand and strode proudly to his room. After much consideration, Red arrived at the conclusion that since his new trousers were longer they would need more substantial support than the old ones. Undaunted, he tied a stout piece of rope about his waist to replace the belt, and from an extra pair of shoe strings con- trived a crude pair of suspenders as an additional re-enforcement. Thus arrayed, Red presented himself at school the next morning, convinced that he was now an equal to the flashiest dude in town. To climax his happiness, immediately after school, Miss Grace Walton, dared on by her many friends, approached with assumed shy- ness and coaxingly begged Red, "to please give her just a short ride in his wonderful automobile". Red, greatly perturbed, grinned sheep- ishly, blew his nose in a huge bandanna handkerchief, shuffled his feet, and after carefuly searching the horizon for signs of airplanes, grunted out a grui, "All right", and strode rapidly toward his car. Without once looking at the pretty miss who followed him, he turned the key and began to crank. Crank, crank, crank! but not even a sputter from the invention of Henry Ford. Red, feeling that some explanation was necessary, confidentially told Grace that the automo- bile and his father's balky mule had lived together in the same shed for so long that the "durn Ford was gittin' jis like that good for nuthin' critter." After a lengthy series of explainings and crankings, the balky mule-flivver gave a grunt, a Wheeze, then a terrific snorth, and sudden- ly.came to life. Red leaped behind the wheel and shouted, "come on, Page Forty-four quick! You kin never tell about these contraptions 'cause they're just like women and change their minds every ten minutes." With a jerk and a roar the car leaped into the street and amid the deafening cheers of the entire student body, sped down the avenue. On and on, out of the city and into the open country sped that mass of tin and bolts with a wild-eyed, red headed boy at the wheel, and a smiling young lady clinging with all her strength to the seat. Up hill, down hill, and ever faster sped the car. Faster, faster, and still faster it sped. Red's hat blew off his head and Grace's hair blew back like a floating train. Suddenly rounding a turn at the bottom of a hill, a sign appeared close at hand which read, "Road Closed-Detourf' Unable to stop, Red sped on. The girl screamed and in her terror grasped Red tightly around the waist. Red's hair stood on end as he finally pressed on the brakes with all his might. But all was in vain. The car crashed through and fell into the eddying stream below. Red, with the girl strangely enough, still clinging to him, was hurled into the air. Then down, down, till suddenly came a long rip, followed by a sudden stop. Red opened his eyes to find Grace still clinging to him, but swinging in mid-air above the abyss, held only by the stout rope around his waist which had caught on the projected beam of the demolished railing. They were quickly removed from their precarious position by a group of nearby road laborers. And again safely on their feet and terra firma, they found that they were none the worse for their joy-ride. The very first thing Red did after the rescue, was to search frantically until he unearthed a huge bridge spike with which he closed as best he could the long rent in the right leg of his precious long trousers.

The Queen of the Artists Marquis sat with his head on the little table by his side. He had been trying to paint a picture of the "Ideal American," to get money which would help support his twelve-year-old daughter, Joan, Grow- ing tired of his task, he had fallen asleep, dreaming of a beautiful home, his daughter and her education. Suddenly a quiet, soft voice awoke him by whispering softly in his ear, "It is wonderful, father, eet ez won- derfulf' Marquis raised his tired, worn and haggard face toward heaven and then his eyes fell on his beautiful daughter's face. Her eyes were like black pools, her complexion was as clear as a crystal, and her cheeks looked like half blown roses. Around her shapely head soft, iiuffy brown curls coiled like serpents around the innocent. His eyes Page Forty-six . -------- Hive ------- took in the form of her body from the top of her shiny head to the tip of her toes. "Yes, she was beautiful. Oh, God! how could he give her up. It could not be lf' "Father," said the quiet voice, "a brother of Blue Ridge wants ye." Marquis arose and went with his daughter to the home of the artists. Blue Ridge was a small settlement in Auden, France, where only artists lived. Located in sort of a valley, surrounded by mountains, clothed with green, fields, it shone forth as one of the most loveliest places in the southern part of France. Joan enjoyed herself by watch- ing the artists, whom she called her brothers, paint. And in the late afternoon, when her father and she entered Blue Ridge, she cried with joy, "Oh father, I feel zat if I leave this beautiful home, I should die of grief. Oh, zat eet means so much to me." Marquis went to help his fellow artist who had torn his canvas and needed help to put it up again. All the time Marquis was working, he was wondering what he should do. At last he made up his mind. There had been a rich trader from Australia there today to see his picture. He was childless and had taken a liking to Joan. Yes, he knew a way out of it. Joan, his daughter, would be saved. Father, eet es time to go. Ze sun is setting in ze west and ze Helds are getting darker with shadows." "All right, my Joan, we go." Over the green fields, hand in hand, went the two silent figures. God had been good to them to let them live in such a beautiful home. At last Marquis broke the silence, 'tJoan, a trader by the name of Luzon was here today to see about my picture. He said it was no good and consequently I have no money to keep us. He liked you and as he is childless, I am going to ask him to adopt you. God knows how hard it is, but there is nothing else to do. You are ignorant of the ways of the world and you have no work here. I cannot keep you." Joan looked at her father through eyes that were blind with tears. She realized the situation, yet, she could not think of giving up the only home which she had ever known. Her mother had died when she was born, therefore she was left with her father, who having tried to bear his sorrow alone, moved into this little secluded spot, Auden. At last she mastered her emotions, and looking into the face of the one she loved so well, she answered, "Oh, M'dieu, M'dieu, not zat. Oh God. not zat. I cannot leave you and my dear brothers. Eet ez impossible." "Daughter, it is the way of the world. What can I do? You know I have no money." His head fell on her shoulders. By this time they had reached home and as Joan pushed open the door, she made up her mind that she would go. As her father sat on the porch smoking, she pushed the foot stool up and sat down at his Page Forty-seven feet. Her head rested on his knees as it had ever since she could re- member. At last she raised her face to his, saying, "Father, I go, I go." The next day Marquis went to see the trader, who still remained in the village, and told him of his plans. The trader was delighted. "Oh, M'dieu, M'dieu," he replied, "I have always loved your daughter, and my wife, she will be delighted." His black eyes sparkled as he gave this last speech. They, this couple, were to have a child whom they could call their own. "I will come for her tomorrow, and then we will depart for the city. Au revoir." Joan heard from her father what the trader had said, and so be- gan her packing. Awaiting the sound of the motor, her eyes wandered over the fields which she loved so well. Her thoughts were interrupted by the soft purr of a limousine, as it stopped in front of the French abode. Mr. Luzon came to the gate and tipped his hat, "Are you ready, my dear?" A faint "yes" came from the lips of the little French maid. "Father, Father! I go! I go !" she murmured. "Yes, my dear, you go. But always remember that you have a fa- ther who loves you better than gold, and wear the locket out of which peeps the face of your darling mother. Bon soir, Ma Cherie." Joan dared not look back and when she entered the car, her head fell on her arm. Mr. Cuzon was very nice to her and told her of all the things he had seen on his travels, but Joan heard not. They reachn ed the port about seven o'clock that evening and the next morning at nine they sailed for Australia. Joan never forgot the day she arrived in Sydney. Mrs. Cuzon, a very pleasing lady with soft blue eyes and yellow hair, met her with such a greeting that .Ioan's heart went out to her at once. Six years passed and Joan has never been what you would really call happy. Mrs. Cuzon saw this, and gave parties and had all sorts of amusements to make her happy, but Joan only longed the more for her quiet little home and her father. One day she told her foster mother that she was going to ride on her pet horse, Topsey, out into the country. But her mind was made up. She would not stay in the noisy city when her heart told her she belonged with the ones she loved. Remember- ing her father's last words, she took the locket which was around her neck and looked upon the face of her saintly mother. Was she doing right? Yes! Her heart told her so. Joan traveled on ,not knowing where she was going until at last, when she realized the sun was set- ting, she found herself in a small valley among the mountains. Hunt- ing for a place to spend the night, she at last found a spot protected by a high cliff. She had taken a blanket and a small package of food. At last she tied her horse to a tree, spread her blanket on the ground, and then lay down to rest. In the morning she awoke to find herself very stiff from laying on the ground. Joan ate a small lunch, enough to Page Forty-eight . ...---- --W .... ...g... keep her alive, and then travelled on, not caring whither she went. For two days she lived this way, until at last she grew sick from fatigue. While her horse was going down a steep cliff, she fell from the saddle. How long she lay there she did not know. But when Joan awoke, she found herself lying on a clean, snowy bed in a small cabin. "Good morning, dear," said a voice, 'fl knew you would get better. All you need is something to eat so that your body may become strong again." Joan looked around and confronted a small woman with soft eyes and white hair. "Good morning," she answered, 'fWill you please tell me where I am, and how I got here?" "I found you on the cliff where you fell off your horse, and so I brought you here. My name is Mrs. Craig and my husband is a gold digger. May I know your name, dear?" "My name is Joan Madonef' "You are French?" asked Mrs. Craig. "Yes, I used to live with my father in Auden among the artists. But excuse me, I must be going for I cannot tarry." "But where are you going, my dear? I want you to stay with me until you are better. Will you?" Joan thought awhile and then answered: "I will if you let me work and help you." They agreed to do this, whereupon Joan spent many happy days with Mr. and Mrs. Craig in their little cabin. She sewed and helped do the housework as well as mary odd jobs. At last when she was bet- ter, she set out and three days later slfe came to a seaport called Queens- town. On inquiring about boats for France, she found that there was one leaving the next day. At last! The time had come when she was going to see her dear father again. At this thought her eyes filled with tears of joy. The next day proved to be one of the finest ever recorded. The grass was green and the birds sang their soft melodies with such force that the very air rang with their notes. The boat was ready to leave and at last Joan found herself out in the open sea. She travelled for three days and at last came to France. Joan took the train to a town five miles from Auden and then walked to her home town. As she wan- dered over those fields again wfth the flowers blooming among the clov- er, her heart swelled with rapture. Then she stopped short, for in front of her was Blue Ridge and on the porch sat her father. He was smok- ing, and when Joan cried, "Father, Father, I come, I come," he arose to meet her with open arms. - "Oh Joan, my darling, I have made good and often have I wanted to see you. God bless you, my own, my darling!" B. H., '27.

Q., '26, Air Trails on the Border A gentle hum rising to a roar, followed by a series of sharp barks, and as a huge De Hairland plane came to a stop, Ralph Morean of Patrol No. 3 on the Mexican border, climbed out. Going at once to headquarters, he checked his reports and was off duty for the rest of the day. Ralph was one of Captain Henderson's "boys" who had earned their stripes in France and had settled down to the monotonous life of patrolling the border. During the war, Ralph had been an expert flyer and seemed to care a great deal for the altitudes. Right now smuggling on the border was being greatly checked, but still the Mexicans were obtaining arms and ammunition. The planes had done noble work, but still Captain Henderson felt that something was slipping somewhere. Near San Dierca was a small group of Mexican huts in which lived several Mexican families under suspicion. In one family was a young chap who seemed to be more of a gentleman and quick thinker than his friends. He became acquainted with Ralph and they soon be- came fast friends. Ralph kept him at the camp part of the time, but receivedorders not to letanyone in without a pass. This boy's name was Diaz. ,He seemed to care for a ride, but orders prevented Ralph from doing such. Ralph became so interested in the little fellow that Page Fifty he told him about his work in guarding the border and chasing illegal goods. Then came a great surprise for Ralph, for at the mention of such goods, Diaz's eyes sparkled and he said he knew of such and would help. In talking, he told of how a man had offered his father, who was a builder, quite a sum of money to build a cabin out in the desert. Diaz said instead of a cabin, however, it was a shield to an opening into a tunnel. That next day Ralph, while on patrol work, sailed low in search of the false cabin. After great difficulty he saw it and found it not far from the border line. Flying even lower, Ralph looked closely with his field glasses and did not notice anything suspicious except the fact that horse tracks led to the door and stopped with none in return. Ris- ing rapidly he sailed away. When partially over the border he noticed another building with a group of horses standing around it. Swooping rapidly down he frightened the horses into confusion. Two men came out of the building and began shooting at him as if warning him away. Leaving them quickly, he went directly to the other cabin. Here he located nothing except that in a short time, two men came out of that building. Looking closely he recognized them as the same two that had fired at him. Suddenly the idea struck him that these men had crossed by an underground tunnel under the border. He now saw through the whole scheme. Going directly on the rest of his patrol, he finished his work for that day in a short time. While flying high, he saw far below the rough border country and many ranges. He arrived in the aerodrome only five minutes behind schedule, and rushed immediately to headquarters. Dashing in, he told the Captain his discovery and how he had planned to stop the smuggling. Then he rushed to the Mexican camp to get Diaz. He called at his home, found him and returned to camp with him. While at the camp, Ralph ques- tioned him very closely about the cabin and learned that the next day a great amount of arms and ammunition were to be carried across. He also told Ralph that there were two tunnels with a short space of open country betiween them. That next morning Ralph and the Captain agreed to the plans. While here he received permission to carry Diaz in the plane. Going on horses to the cabin, were fourteen men under Lieutenant Barnes, with a cowboy guide. All left at 9:30 in the morning. Under Lieutenant Barnes, the men went by horses to the border and west about twenty- five miles. Ralph with Diaz went to his usual patrol as a camouflage. Then through his field glass, he spotted four horses moving rapidly to- ward the border through a rocky trail. After that Ralph arose to a height of almost 12,000 feet He was now out of sight. He marvelled at the Mexican boys' bravery. He showed no signs of fear, but held an excited and interesting look on his face. Going back at a rapid pace, Ralph flew within a few miles of the cabin and met the men on horses. Page Fifty-two v ------- --are ------- They carefully picked their way to a place designated between the two tunnels. If the two bands of smugglers met here it would be hard to overcome them. At noon they were stationed behind rocks not far from the American tunnel, but two men were placed to watch the Mex- ican side. Suddenly six masked Mexicans, all of them heavily armed, rode out of the tunnel. A short 'thands up !" They came to a stop before they had advanced ten feet. Twelve armed men with ready rifles, under Lieutenant Barnes, stepped from their hiding places. Carefully cover- ing these men, they disarmed them and seized the pack horses. Keep- ing them under heavy guard, Ralph and the Lieutenant opened the packs and found ammunition. Their curiosity aroused, they searched farther into the goods. In a separate box unmarked, they found many precious gems. This was quite a funny thing to be smuggled by Mex- icans. Still another surprise greeted them, for when the masks were torn from their faces, they proved to be a group of desperate criminals under Richard Bartson, and wanted for more crimes than one. The reward was pictured in Ralph's eyes, since a huge price was of- fered for the arrest of this notorious gang. After tying these desper- adoes to their horses, the men planted over a hundred pounds of pow- der in the two tunnels and Diaz was given the honor of setting it off. A sudden rumble and the smugglers' connecting link caved in. Quickly rising, Ralph saw the approaching storm and also four Mexicans leaving the vicinity towards Mexico. Arriving home, Ralph thanked Diaz heartily and the criminals were taken to the national prison. Ralph received a great share of the honor and reward. To his utter amazemennt, came the telegram say- ing, "Promotion of Ralph Morean to Lieutenant with an advance of wages and forty days' leave of absence." A kind hand rested on his shoulder, and as Captain Henderson congratulated Ralph, he said "The kind of a fellow that makes America invincible." D. B., Class of '25.

Radio Jack Wheeee-P-P-P-scratch-scratch. There issued forth a most dis- pleasing sound from the loud speaker, as John McFarlan, otherwise known as Radio Jack, adjusted the dials of his small home-made radio set. Finally the sound of a man's voice was heard in the distance, an- nouncing the number on the program. More adjusting, followed' with more success. A varied program was the result interrupted by hideous scratches. As the program ended, Jack turned off the current and with a disgusted sigh lay down on his bed. Jack was the son of Mr. and Mrs. James McFarlan, who were poor people working by the day, and had hard times making ends meet. Jack, that summer, had earned enough money to send himself to the nearby high school. With the meager surplus, he had constructed the small receiving set which had just given such unsatisfactory returns. Finally he prepared for bed, going to sleep almost instantly. Close onto two o'clock, he awoke, and being restless, got up and took a turn about the room. Lying down was followed by thirty minutes of restless tossing, after which he tuned in on the air partly because he was lone- some and partly because he had a curious feeling which began to de- mand attention. The experience of last evening was repeated. After ten minutes' tuning, nothing was heard, and he was about to shut down when there came the voice of a man calling off the following numbers: "2-18-9-14-7 20-8-5 25-1-20-3-8 13-25-19-20-5-18-25 23-9-20-8 2-15-15- 20-25 20-15 14-5-23 25-15-18-11, D'you hear me Dud?" "I got 'cha, Jim," was the answer. Page Fifty-four By this time Jack was on his feet, excitely bending over his set. Nothing was heard after Hfteen minutes more listening. He paced the room. What could the message be? There must be some sort of il- legal proceedings, otherwise why the late hours and secret code? He wrestled with the question until he saw evidence of dawn in the east when he lay down to rest until called. He dozed off, and the next thing he knew his father was calling at the foot of the stairs. This was Mon- day morning, which meant school and lessons. That morning as he walked to school, he pondered over the question until his head was a haze of figures. He studied the figures from all sides and angles, but he could not detect the meaning. That morning in mathematics, the only numbers which took def- inite form in his head, were the numbers heard last night. He sat dur- ing science, studying the code. The instructor seeing him, compelled him to sit in a chair by his side. This made Jack feel rather embar- rassed, but still he wondered and puzzled over the myterious message. Suddenly a bright light came over his face. Was it possible? Could it be, that the numbers stood for letters? He took paper and pencil and figured out the code. Yes, it was the mysterious message. The astound- ing words were: "Bring the yacht, Mystery, with booty to New York.'f As he read these words, he started in his chair until it almost tipped over. The instructor fixed a gaze on him that caused him to stammer out a half audible explanation. "You may go," said the instructor, Hand bring me an explanation of your behavior tomorrow." Jack got up, seized his cap and ran all the way home. Finding the paper in the box, he frantically opened it. There it was in big head- lines: "TRAIN LOADED WITH U. S. CURRENCY ROBBEDX' He went on to read the details of the robbery, which stated the belief of the officials that the crime was committed by a well organized gang. The train had been loaded with currency from the mint at Washington for the New York banks. The loss was said to have amounted to several millions. As he finished the account, he gave a low whistle: "I'll go to Mother and Dad and ask 'em if I can go to New York and lay the information before the authorities. It's only an hour's ride on the cars." His parents were somewhat skeptical, but finally consented. Jack hurried to his room, donned his best clothes and caught the two-thirty train to New York. Upon arrival he hurried to police headquarters where he asked to-see the chief. He was put off by the reply, "The chief's busy now, working on the big train robbery. He can't be both- ered with you now. You go to the Lieutenant." ' "That's just what I want to see him about," answered Jack. At tlliisfstatement he was immediately ushered into the presence of the c ie . Page Fifty-five "What's your business?" asked the chief grufliy. He looked as though he had not slept for forty-eight hours. "Does this concern the robbery?" asked Jack, as he handed the code, with the message written below it, to the chief. A surprised exclamation escaped from the chief, "Where did you get hold of this, boy?" "I heard it on the radio about two o'clock this morning, but only found the key to the code a couple of hours ago." "Would you recognize the men's voices if they were captured?" "Yes." "Well, we'll just take you with us. We may be able to use you." Then followed a string of orders and commands. A buzzer rang. whereupon a big husky oificers came into the room. O'Leary, I want you and nine of your biggest men within ten min- utes," came from the chief. Next he strapped on a gun that looked to Jack-as big as a riHe and made his knees shake as if he had the palsy. They hastened out into the street where they found a riot car with the men waiting. They got in and on the way the chief told his men the news and gave them a brief outline of his campaign. They would hire a swift speed launch, for the yacht was sure to make tracks at the sight of the officers headed its way, and if necessary, chase her down. As they arrived at the wharves, Jack's eye swept the bay and alighted on a neat looking craft about two hundred yards out, with the name, "Mystery," neatly painted on its bow. The chief had seen it also and was gazing at it as if it had cast a charm over him. "It looks suspicious," he said, "why should they keep their fires going, except to make a quick getaway." O'Leary had by this time gained the services of a man and his launch, which was, the man said, as fast as any in the bay. They em- barked and headed for the yacht, a move which seemed to cause a de- cided commotion. The race was on! The yacht was getting under way, headed for the ocean. "lf she ever gets outside the break-water, we're finished," was the comment. "Can't we go faster?" was the question. "We should go faster, but we don't," was the answer. The launch had begun to miss now and then, and was losing more ground rapidly. It was O'Leary who saved the day. Prompted by some instinct, he looked around and saw a stream of gasoline spurting from a broken connection. Kneeling down, he closed one of his great hands around the connection. The result was instantaneous. The launch leaped forward at a speed which was double that of its former speed. Page Fifty-six The distance between the two boats was decreasing rapidly. It was two hundred yards, now a hundred and fifty, now fifty. The men stood up preparatory to boarding the yacht. Now! The time had come! They were alongside. The chief swung his heavy gun into action and jumped across the narrow strip of water, followed by ten husky men. In the meantime the pursued had not been idle. They had taken refuge in the chart room and were now demanding that the officers sur- render. Eleven forty-fours spoke instantaneously in reply, and a rush followed. The frail chart house gave way before three thousand and three hundred pounds of solid bone and muscle. The rest was easy. The men were covered and hand cuffed before they knew what had happened. The money was there. Package upon package of bills hold- ing one thousand dollars each and case after case of silver and gold. Jack looked, and as he looked, visions of things that so much money would buy floated before his eyes. When asked what he was thinking about, he replied, 'Tm meditatingf, The prisoners were taken to jail to await trial, and Jack and the ohficers returned to their respective duties-Jack to school, and the of- ficers to their posts. Three days later, Jack, getting the mail out of the box, dropped a long yellow envelope. When he picked it up, he saw that it had his name on it. Absently tearing it open he drew forth the contents. As he turned it over in his hand a slip of paper came into his view with his name written along the middle. Opposite was writing which amount- ed to one thousand dollars. He stood as if struck, and after coming to himself, rushed into the house wildly waving the check over his head. Now the name of John McFarlane is known nation-wide as a radio engineer. He says he owes his fame to the first thousand dollars. We hope that the science teacher has forgiven him. B. T., Class of'26. That School Friend No matter where you wander, No matter where you roam, No matter where you travel From mother and from home: One thing you will discover, One thing you will find out, Without the possibility Or shadow of a doubt. You never will forget a friend A chum you've made at school, Page Fifty-seven ------ --fm? ---------- - Page Fifty-eight No reason Why has yet been found No reason given will do. 'Tis one of life's great mysteries That baflles every mind, Why friends you make at school, Lasting friendship you will find. It may be that the people Are moved to shout and jeer "The Friend" as just a past Idea you soon will sear, It may be but a gesture, By simple soul divine, When you always know you have A friend you can say "Mine."

Each group was then required to stage a short play on a Friday afternoon set aside for that purpose. The public was invited free of charge and all those who attended the entertainments seemed very much pleased. Th purpose Page Sixty-five we of these short plays was largely to give the participants some practical experience on the stage and to cultivate an interest in literary work in general. Up to date two of the plays have been staged and others will appear in the near future.

The auditorium was cleverly decorated with the Senior colors- purple and gold, and the Junior colors-old rose and silver, with the Senior colors predominating. The decorations were arranged overhead to represent a diamond shaped canopy. 'Suspended from the center was a large banner of "Welcome," and on the opposite side the Senior mot- to: "Veni, Vidi, Vici." Shaded electric lights were grouped inside the canopy. The tables were also placed in the form of a diamond under- neath this elaborate trellis work. The evening was ioyfully spent in feasting, songs, speeches and toasts, Chester Anderson acting as toastmaster. The entire program consisted of: Welcome - Chester Anderson Response Theodore McCullough Class Poem - - Laura Perkins Vocal Solo - - - Mary Ollie Class Will - - Elma Brooks Reading - - - - Verna Holt Class Prophecy - - - Mildred Higgs Piano Duet ------- Mary Opie, Verna Holt A delicious menu was served, which mothers of the Juniors assisted in preparing.

K., '24, Birthday Party On Saturday evening, March 23, 1924, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Bourne and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Flinn invited the basket ball team and their friends to the Bourne residence to help celebrate the birthdays of Don- ald Bourne and Edgar Flinn. The rooms were artistically decorated with the basket ball colors of purple and white. Both the shield and the cup won by this year's team were displayed and were much commented upon by those who had not previously seen them. A very delightful evening was spent in playing novel games, story telling and music. Later in the evening a dainty cafeteria lunch was served, to which all did ample justice. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Flinn, Mr. and Mrs. Bourne, Misses Helen Davis, Violet Quinn, Jessie Gillett, Gladys Linck, Mildred Wrigley ,Theodosia Anderson, Edna Harshbarger, Ruth Karstetter, Thelma Ewalt and Miriam Bourne, and Messrs. Edgar Flinn, Chester Anderson, Charles Hovenden, Donald Bourne, Russell Peters, Marshall McCullough, Lloyd Goodman, and Ira Phillips. Among many other gifts presented to the boys were two small engraved pocket knives from the basket ball team of '24, T. A., ,27. Freshman Initiation Party The thriving class of '27, consisting of twenty members, was in- itiated into the trials and joys of a high school life in a high school gym, September, 1923. A group of upper classment and faculty members shrouded and masked as ghosts, conducted the terrified freshmen through artificial forests and caves where they were subjected to many blood-curdling experiences. They were led through thickly tangled undergrowth and even faced death itself. Page Seventy-on In conclusion the lights were shaded as the entire class knelt upon the gym floor in a circle and with hands reverently folded, repeated the following obligation: HI, Freshman of the Trivoli High School, simplest of the simple, fresh and foolish, do hereby and hereon most solemnly and sincerely, promise and swear that l will do all in my power to improve my de- mented condition and conceal my homely face. Furthermore, I will always keep clean. I promise faithfully to wash my face twice a year at regularly stated intervals, using a Bon Ami Special, providing same can be purchased at half price at the nearest grocery store. That I will take a bath once a year on the date observed by all Freshmen of T. C. H. S. same being held inviolate as February 29th. Furthermore, that I will always laugh at the teacher's jokes, I knowing them to be such. To all this I promise never to reveal any of the mysteries of this order, to keep intact all secrets which may be disclosed to me and to bind myself to this obligation with a no less penalty than that of having my nose painted red, a piece of limburger cheese suspended therefrom and my hands saturated in the juices of garlic, should I ever violate this, my solemn obligation of a nutty little freshman. So help me mamma and approve of my firmness of purpose in the due performance of the same." Later in the evening delicious refreshments were served to all pres- ent and the freshmen emerged in tipetop condition both physically and mentally to carry on their work as full pledged students of T. C. H. S. F. D. H., '26. High School Day at the M. E. Church Following their custom the high school students took complete charge of the church services at the Methodist church on March 30. The high school choir furnished music that won praise from all present. Ira Phillips, Theodosia Anderson, Mildred Pillman, Thelma Ewalt, Margaretta Morin, Donald Bourne and Mr., Wells each gave a very interesting short talk pertaining to the cooperation of the church and the high school. Vocal and violin solos were given by Gladys McMas- ters and Mr. Peters, respectively. As far as we know this plan of high school day in the churcli is something rather uncommon in most high schools but we feel sure that many benefits are derived by both the church and the high school from it Page Seventy-two - -------- - ------- The Alumni Home Coming Excitement reigned in all her glory! The old basket ball team, now organized as Alumni, were coming to play the high school team of '24, Too, it was to be the first game of the season, and after a whole year had passed, every body was on the alert to see the old ball rolling again. The school had decided to give a little informal welcome to the old team and class. Tlfe upper classmen had to admit that there was a Vacancy in old T. C. H. S., which the freshmen were not yet capable of filling, and thus truly welcomed the class members as old friends. As the Alumni team composed of: VVhite, Plumer, McCullough, Harding and Kelly dashed across the floor, the high school responded to their good spirits with a rousing yell for the Alumni team. In be- half of the school, Mr. lVells gave a general welcome to all present, While Miss Harding gave a brief but hearty welcome to the team and members of the class. Captain Vllhite of the Alumni team responded with appreciation to the school and community for their welcome and fine spirit of sportsmanship. The community felt that they too owed the team a Word of welcome and appreciationg so in behalf of the com- munity, Rev. Ellinwood spoke to both the school and Alumni. Another yell drowned the silence and rang out on the night air as the high school team dashed on the floor. The whistle sounded! Up Went the ball! The game had started. After an exciting hour forthe high school, the final whistle sound- ed, the referee read the score 15-14, in favor of the Alumni team, and the teams left the floor. We were sorry to see the high school lose to the Alumni, but yet, We Were happy to think that the splendid team who had won from us was a part of our school-our Alumni, whose members had worked four years to help lay the foundations for our present school spirit. The piano was moved to the floor, Leslie McDonald and Russell Peters appeared with drum traps and a violin. The music started and the couples both old and young, glided across the floor. Along the side of the hall others talked of the game and old times they had had in '23, The crowd departed after about two hours of dancing and play- ing games. Pagc Seventy-three 512:12 Alumni fwp nzfrnm- ALUMNI tyfi Doings of the Alumni Members Many years seem to have passed since the class of 1923 were stu- dents of old T. C. H. S., yet in reality it has been but a short year since the halls of the old school resounded with our merry voices and long famous utterances. When boning for an examination or receiving a lecture on disci- pline, none of us realized how true the old saying is that high school days are the most enjoyable days of a person's life. Now after having been out of school but a few months, we have heard several members of the old class say that college is great but they would give five years of their life to be able to live over their high school days again. But time never turns back the big clock of life and we cannot go back. We must begin to look for our special niche in this busy life. We wonder how many of us are sure that we have found that niche- not many. Of the class of '23, five are continuing their training, Esther in Normal, preparing to teachg Bob in Bradley, the stepping stone to the medical profession, Theodore, Clinton and Russell also are continuing their training at Bradley for a professional career. The remaining members of the class have discontinued their school- ing for the present at least. The occupations of these have varied some- what. Melva is employed by Mrs. Doebler of Peoria, who in former years, taught many of the class their abc's. Louise, Mary, Dorothy and Mildred have been at home, excepting last summer when Mary attended Normal for the summer term. Of the boys, Cecil, Elwyn and John are taking an agriculture course with their parents as instructors. Myron worked on the home farm part of the summer and winter. During the season of cement road building he was employed as assistant to the state engineer. Recently he has accepted a position with the Producers Association of Peoria. Last but not least comes our jolly Leslie Kelly who has succeeded in raising his weight to 215 lbs. He is in business with the National Motorists Association in Peoria. Thus we find the Alumni after one year's absence from old T. C. H. S. Each year the graduating class adds more members to the Alumni and it will become more scattered each year. These members will start out as a cog in our nation's industry with the knowledge they have gained in T. C. H. S. as a basis for their success. E. R.H., '23. Page Seventy-six ------ --5220 ---------- - Alumni Organization The first Alumni Association of the Trivoli Community High School was organized May 18, 1923. The following were the officers elected: President ---- Mildred VVrigley Vice-President ---- Leslie Kelly Secretary-Treasurer - - - Louise Anderson The present organization consists of the following members. Esther Beal, Melva Frank, Dorothy Kirkman, Mary Opie, Louise Ander- son, Mildred Wrigley, Theodore McCullough, Myron McNaughton, Les- lie Kelly, Elwyn Harding, Clinton Parr, Cecil Hammond, Russell White, Robert Plumer and John Williams. The first meeting of the officers of the Alumni was held in the Tri- Voli C. E. Church for the purpose of drawing up a form for the consti- tution and by-laws. The following were present: Louise Anderson, Leslie Kelly, Mil- dred Wrigley and Helen Cornelius as advisor. The second meeting of the officers of the T. C. H. S. Alumni was held at the home of Helen Cornelius, 107 Ayers, Peoria, Ill. The mat- ter of securing material for the high school Annual was discussed, after which refreshments were served by the hostess and a social time en- joyed. M. E. YV., '23, Class Reunion A reunion of the Alumni of Trivoli Community High School was held at the home of Mildred Vfrigley, Saturday eve, January 5, 1924. This was the first opportunity the class of ,23 had had to be together since graduation. To bring back the memory of high school days the rooms were decorated and the lights beautifully shaded with the class colors of pur- ple and gold. The pastime of the evening was games and music, after which a delightful lunch was served by the hostess. A social time was enjoyed by all. Those present included: Melva Frank, Esther Beal, Dorothy Kirkman, Louise Anderson, Helen Cornelius, Mildred Wrigley, Robert Plumer, Clinton Parr, Russell White, John VVilliams, Myron McNaugh- ton and Theodore McCullough. A. L. A., '23. Page Seventy-seven We O l'l 'K-7 -1n -1 l M - -------- - ---------- - OUR COACH For two years Russell Peters has coached the T. H. S. athletic teams and in that short time he has won the respect and admiration of students, athletes and fans alike. To the athletes whom he has trained, he has been not only an instructor but a pal and can no doubt attribute much of his success to his ability to make 'friends with all. In the face of every obstacle he has developed a team this year from a limited stock of inexperienced material that won a beautiful loving' cup and a shield. The record of honors that his teams have won we cannot here relate but it is enough to say that he has shared with his players the joys of victory and the sorrows of defeat. We feel that the success of the basket ball teams of 1922 and 1924 was due not only to the players but also to the sterling character and expert coaching abil- ity of our coach and friend, Russell Peters. To the Basket Ball Fans We, the Athletic Association, wish to express our hearty appre- ciation to those -of the community who have so loyally supported us in all our athletics of the past. We feel that much of our success has been due to your timely encouragement and unfailing willingness to aid us in all our enterprises. We hope to continue to deserve your loyalty in the future. Page Seventy-nine The Canton Invitation Tournament When is a vacation not a vacation? Answer-When you spend it practicing basket-ball. Every day of vacation before the tournament the team spent many hours in strenuous practice. Christmas afternoon found the boys dead weary after a three hours' practice. But in spite of all, each face wore a look of cheerful determination. On Wednesday evening the team, accompanied by Coach Peters and Trainer White, swung aboard a iirst class M. Sz St. L. Tag-a-long, bound for Canton by way of Farmington. The journey was uneventful and eight o'clock found them established in their headquarters at the Churchill House Hotel. At the Churchill House they suddenly awoke to the fact that they had in their group an explorer and discoverer of note. He informed the team that he had discovered a radio testing sta- tion across the way where a large number of beautiful young ladies were testing radio sets. Close investigation however, disclosed the fact that it was merely a telephone switchboard. Thursday morning after a restless night, they had the privilege of playing the Hrst game of the tourney at 9 a. m. The foe, Bardolph, was represented by an exceptionally fast team, which put up a game iight all the way. The final score read 18-13 in favor of Trivoli. Due to a draw, which forced Trivoli to play one game more than than any other team entered, they took the floor for a second time on Thursday evening at 9 o'clock. Knoxville, their opponent, caused the team less anxiety than any other team 'met in the tournament. Leading 20-4 at the first half, substitutes were entered in the fray. The final gun was fired just as the score-keeper was in the act of hanging up figures which read 33-19. In this game Theodore Opie carved his name high on the mantle of fame at T. C. H. S., due to the fact that he entered the game with but forty seconds to play, dribbled through the entire Knox- ville team and scored a Held goal just as the gun was fired. Ted ,how- ever, earned his glory, for he was at once appointed guardian of the ball, and made responsible for its safe transportation at all times. Most critics thought Trivoli would be beaten in the next game with Elmwood at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon. The game was the closest played by Trivoli at the tournament, resulting in a 15-18 victory. The greater part of tlfe period found the score tied or in Elmwood's favor. A last minute rally resulted in the acquiring of five points and a hard earned victory. Trivoli was now eligible to compete in the semi-finals with Normal High School. Normal was being picked by many fans to win the tour- ney and the first half round found them well on that road, leading 10- 12. Coming back into the game, spurred on by encouragement from Coach Peters, the team proceeded to fight as never before. Hard work received its reward and in the fmal quarter of the game with the score Page Eighty 1 ------- --fra ------- tied at 20-all, Trivoli came to the front with a steady deluge of Held goals. At supper, t'Twenty to Twenty-Eight" was the tune to which they ate. We won. A telegram from home fans was received just be- fore the game and stirred that old fighting spirit to its highest pitch. The Normal High School team boasted every player to be a gentle- man, and we found them to be so. Even in defeat they displayed that fine spirit of clean sportsmanship which is everywhere met with cheers. At nine o'clock Saturday evening, Trivoli met Canton in the final game of the tournament. It never been the policy of our high school when defeated, to come home with a liost of excuses. This year's team is no exception. Canton has a wonderful team, made up of fine, clean players, who fought hard and deserved to win. The final gun found Trivoli's ship grounded on a high Canton rock I3-52, but with all ten survivors of the team clinging tragically to a beautiful second place shield. To enter a team of inexperienced players, only one of whom had played on last year's five, in a tournament considered by sport critics as one of the fastest ever held in Central Illinois, would generally be considered foolhardy. But when this same team comes through and by playing the longest schedule in the tournament, pulls down a secon-Ll place, there must be some reason. The one big reason is Coach Peters, the only coach who has ever developed a team in Trivoli good enough to bring home a tournament trophy. The team returned home by way of Farmington Sunday morning, defeated, whipped, down, but never out. Spirits began to revive and the sting of defeat was slightly lessened as the second place shield was hung in our own school. Throughout the tourney the team was cheered on by a body of loyal rooters who braved terrible weather and roads which were said to be impassable, just to see their favorites fight through to the final game. Such backing is always of great aid to a team and in this case, at least, was highly appreciated. C. L. A., Class of '24. Just Dope Throughout the winter it has become the favorite pastime of sport editors and critics to select All-Star teams at the various tournaments. In this department Trivoli athletes have received their full share ol honors and in three years of tournament competition have been awarded eleven of the coveted positions on All-Star teams selected by some of the most prominent critics in central Illinois.

The first night was spent in Abingdon, and the next day the journey was completed. The first game was at five o'clock with Table Grove. This team was a dark horse to Trivoli tribe, and it was with cautious steps, that PageEighty-three f """' --WTP ------""' the game proceeded. But after a few minutes of play the Trivoli offensive broke loose with a barrage of baskets, such that, at the third quarter Coach Peters entered the subs into the fray. But they had no soft spots in their hearts and the onslaught continued until the final gun, which found Trivoli on the long end of a 42-10 score. The boys were allowed to see the remaining games of the day because the next game was not until 2 P. M. Friday. Trivoli had downed Fairview twice before during the season but were rather uncertain be- cause Fairview told them they were going to pull a big surprise on them. The roll was called at 2 P. M. and every man was found at his post ready to do his best for the honor of his school. The game was fast and furious and from the start to the finish but Fairview's surprise failed to function well against Trivoli's five man defense and the end came rather calmly at 20-23. The next foe to oppose the gang on the road to success was Sher- rard. This team was rated as one of the best in the tournament, and every one knew that some real stepping must be done if Trivoli came out on top. The game was called by Allen at 10 A. M. Saturday morning. This was a fight from the first whistle until the final gun. The score sawed back and forth throughout the entire game with first one in the lead and then the other. With three minutes to go and Trivoli one point in the lead, one of the Sherrard basketeers sank a field goal which spelled defeat for our boys. The final score was 21-22, whch left a heart broken bunch of boys, a dsappointed coach and a chance to play Versailles for third place at 4 P. M. It was a discouraged aggregation which appeared on the floor that afternoon, not caring much for anything except revenge on some- body. The game was never in doubt for the Trivoli tribe after the first halfg and the last game of the tournament found Trivoli holding third place by a 31-20 score over Versailles. "Well, we won third place anyway, fellows." "Aw! What of it? There isn't any cup in it." It was then that a miracle happened. A man was met on the street and after being informed that we had defeated Versailles said, "Here's a cup for you." And we were presented with a beautiful silver loving cup. Boy, it may here be stated that it was a more agreeable bunch that left Ma- comb on the 8:30 train Sunday morning for home via the route Bush- nell, Peoria and Trivoli. C. D. H., '24, Page Eighty-four ""' --GEF "--""" ' St. Patrick's Party A very pleasant evening was enjoyed by the members of the bas- ket ball team and their friends at the home of Rev. and Mrs. Ellinwood, March 13. The party began at 7:45, and from then on, the gudsts were entertained by games and tricks. The idea of St. Patrick's day was carried out in the decorations and favors. The host and hostess proved to be past masters of the art of entertaining and crowded every minute full of fun. Later on a dainty lunch was served, consisting of ice cream, cake and other delicacies. When the cuckoo clock struck twelve, the crowd adjourned but not before thanking the host and hostess for their kindness. Those present were the Misses Edna Harshbarger, Beulah Hurt, Theodosia Anderson, Gladys Linck, Miriam Bourne, Jessie Gillett, Vio- let Quinn, Gladys McMasters, Helen Davis and Mrs. J. R. Bourne, also, the Messrs. Russell Peters, Charles Hovendon, Donald Bourne, Chester Anderson, Edgar Flinn, Ira Phillips, Marshall McCullough, Lloyd Goodman and J. R. Bourne. This is only one of the many times when the Ellinwoods have helped the athletes and in fact, all the school, in their various enterprises and activities. B. H., l27. T-R-I-V-O-L-I Oh what is Trivoli and where is it found? I'll tell you dear friends in words that are sound. It's a bit of a town that makes many folks laugh, Tell them itls where they separate wheat from the chaff. At our basket ball games the inhabitants shout, "Though Trivoli is down it is never out." Its a bit of a place with a great big heart That helps us along in whatever we start. Though its a one-horse-town its our old home town. The place where old friends and acquaintance we found. Though far afield to new places we roam, That wee bit of a town will always be home. C. A., '24.

In most of the tournaments we were forced to arrive a day in advance of the opening game in order that the required rest might be obtained. However, Friday morning we ilivvered to Peoria via the eleventh wonder of the world namely the hard road between Trivoli and Peoria Page Eighty-seven and arrived none the worse for our short ride.f We had been continually receiving reports from the games and with excited imagination running wild, thought of ourselves in all sorts of basket ball predicaments. Only one who has ever participated in a basket ball tournament can realize the nervous tension and strain that even the most seasoned player undergoes before an important game. At eleven o'clock Friday morning the team jogged on the floor at the huge Peoria High School gymnasium to meet their first foe, Dunlap. A large squad of enthusiastic rooters accompanied the team and soon managed to convince the Peorians that Trivoli boys would not lack backing from the side lines. Somehow the Trivoli boys could not hit their stride and the game became rather listless in spite of the closeness of the score. The team with only three minutes to play began to show some of their usual form and functioned like a real basket ball machine should function. The final score was 17-11. Following the game that part of the tournament that all players detest had to be endured. To bed and to sleep were the orders. The first part was dutifully obeyed, but it is very doubtful if many of the fellows slept. At eight o'clock Friday evening the team came on the floor for the second game of the tournament with Brimfield. Trivoli had previously beat Brimfield twice, but too the fact that the Trivoli boys seemed in a slump we all realized that it was to be a very close game. The game from the first was snappy and kept the spectators on their feet, so in- tense was the excitement. At the first half, Trivoli held a slight lead but the third quarter saw the lead diminished. With three minutes left to play and Trivoli leading by one point a Brimfield player tossed a field goal. The one point lead, small as it was, was enough to win the all-important game. It was a down-hearted bunch of fellows that filed off the court, knowng that not only had the game been lost but also that it was the last time that five should ever play together under the colors of good old T. C. H. S. Determined to try and forget their defeat, all the members of the team stayed in Peoria and witnessed the remaining games. The tourn- ament certainly deserved the name of the tourney of upsets because on no less than five occasions did teams that were rated vastly inferior to their opponents surprise everyone and win their games. In view of this fact we tried to console ourselves that we were not the! only: ones who had suddenly been turned around to see Fate camping on our trail. - ' The Macomb Invitation Track and Field Meet On May 12, 1923, Lloyd Goodman. Russell White. Ira Phillips and Chester Anderson journeyed to Macomb to represent T. C. S. in one representing the cream of track athletes in central Illinois. Among Page Eighty-eight Tw the more noted of the entrants was Joe Desincco, more commonly known as "The Toluca Flash", and joint holder of the world's high school rec- ord for the one hundred yard dash. The trip over terribly ,muddy roads occupied four hours, at the end of which the athletes were in anything but perfect condition for a strenuous afternoon's competition. In this meet Trivoli secured only two places, Chester Anderson winning second place in the standing broad jump and third in the fifty yard dash. However, considering the class of competition, Trivoli made a very creditable showing, many of the noted high schools in the state failing to place in the various events. The meet was won by Toluca with a total of 21 points. Little Five Track Meet On May 19, five track teams assembled at Elmwood to participate in the annual track and field meet. The teams entered, were Trivoli, Elmwood, Farmington, Yates City and Brimfield. Elmwood as was expected, won the meet wth a total of 69 points while Trivoli placed second with 55 points. The boys' unusual showing was a surpriseito everyone as very little was expected from them in the light of previous showings. We were handicapped by not having a track on which to practice but perseverence and hard work received its reward in the form of numerous prizes. A large group of students accompanied the team and cheered loyally for their favorites. The events in which Tri- voli athletes placed were as follows: 440 Yard Run .................... , .........

To earn this privilege is the aim of every athlete. Trivoli athletes who have been thus honored are: Track, 1923 Lloyd Goodman Leslie Kelly Russell VVhite Chester Anderson Basket Ball, 1924 Lloyd Goodman Capt. Chester Anderson Donald Bourne Marshall McCullough Edgar Flinn Ira Phillips Charles Hovenden Theodore Opie Bradley Track and Field Meet On May 5, the track team participated in the annual meet at Peo- ria. Seventy teams represented by over Hve hundred athletes partic- ipated in the events. It was popularly considered the largest meet of its kind in Illinois. Although all the Trivoli entries tried their best, none of them were able to place in their events. We might offer many excuses but the truth of the matter is that Trivoli was for once, com- pletely outclassed. This year, with another year's experience to our credit we hope to redeem ourselves. Peoria County Track and Field Meet 1923 Encouraged by the success gained in the Little Five meet the team now composed of Leslie Kelly, Russell White, John Williams, Chester Anderson, Ira Phillips, Lloyd Goodman and Theodore Opie, journeyed to Princeville to compete in the annual county meet. The usual group of fans accompanied the team and were pleased to see the interesting events run off with machine like precision. It was an ideal day and the track being in perfect condition, several records were shattered. Trivoli emerged into the class of record holders when Anderson leaped ten feet one inch in the standing broad jump, to tie the record which has been held by Tidd of Elmwood since 1910.

Captain Anderson 2 Adieu As the year of 1924 draws to a close, Trivoli High bids sad adieu to one of her greatest athletes, on the track, on the basket ball court, and on the baseball diamond. Captain Anderson made his first appear- ance on the basket ball floor in 1921-22. After one year of training he was placed on the regular quintet and was honored by having his name listeias a first all-star guard at the Canton District Tournament, 1922-23. The following season he was elected, unanimously, by his team-mates as their leader and captain for the season of 1923-24. Fully appreciating the honor bestowed on him, Capt. Anderson redoubled his efforts, and, as a result, he was included in, the all-star selections in all three tournaments in which Trivoli High competed. On the track, Anderson has brought back to the Trivoli High School four firsts, one second and one third, in one season's competi- tion. That he will more than duplicate this feat during the 1924 season is unquestionably predicted by those who have seen him in action. With the graduation of Capt. Anderson, Trivoli High loses one of her most valuable aces, one who has played the game clean and fair, and one who has led his team through an honorable and successful sea- son. "Captain Anderson, Trivoli High appreciates the honor that has been bestowed upon her-she appreciates the clean sportsmanship dis- played by your team-she appreciates your efforts and the efforts of your fellow players-she appreciates the honor you have brought back to her. Captain Anderson, you have played the game fairly and you've given us all you had. When the gong sounds at the opening of another season, we'1l miss you, Captain Anderson, but we know that you're going onfgoing on, playing the game of life, giving the best you have and playing the game fairly and squarely. Captain Anderson we bid you farewell and in this, our parting hand-grasp, we wish you good luck and God-speed."

Page One Hundred Five 1 r w 4 Some of Us in Days Gone By Page One Hundred Six The Combat Out in the road two figures are engaged in an awful combat, they rush hither and thither, tearing up the earth and producing a wierd succession of sounds. They can be seen quite distinctly in the intense moonlight, one the form of a man, the other the form of a beast. Each seems to be resolved to slay the other, and several times the man is hurled to the ground. The one of our race seems to be getting the worst of the argument. Occasionally we hear an oath. It is evident that the man is fast weakening. We hear him pant and occasionally groan. The beast seems to be in a much better condition. Sometimes he gives a loud roar and seems about to flee from the battle. The battle goes on-the excitement is intense. The stillness of the air is broken only by the breathing of the combatants. They continue the struggle. Suddenly the man turns and flees. He runs down the road, sobbing as if his heart would break. The beast remains where he left it. The man, turning suddenly aside, jerks ol? his coat, flings it aside, spins thrice in the moonlight. There is an answering roar. The ilivver has started at last. Advice to Students Early to bed and early to rise Love all the teachers and tell them no lies, Study your lessons that you may be wise And buy from the firms that advertise. Don: "Frank burned a hole in his trousers. Mr. Peters: 'iDid he carry any insurance?" Don: UNO! His coat tail covered the loss? Examination paper in American History: "Gen.

Solace As for looks, I am not a star There are folks better looking by far, But my face-I donlt mind it- For I am behind it, It's the folks out in front that I jar. Mr. Wells: "When a lightning rod is charged by a flash of light- ning, what happens?" Chet: "It thundersf' Page One Hundred Seven Forty-First Psalm The Ford is my car, I shall not want another. lt maketh me to lie down in muddy paths, it leadeth me to say profane words. lt tireth my soul, it taketh me into the paths of disgrace, for its namesake, yea, though I ride through the valley, I shall walk up the hill, I shall have no comfort while it is with me. It breaketh down in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest my head with oil, my radiator runneth over. Surely if the thing shall follow me all the days of my life, I shall dwell in the bughouse forever. . -Amen. The boy sat on the moonlit deck, His head was in a whirlg His eyes and mouth were full of hair, But his arms were full of girl. He kissed her on the cheek, It seemed a harmless frolicg But now he's been laid up a week, They say with painter's colic. Jessie to Mac at piano: "Play 'On the Back Porch'." Mas: "How can I, there isnlt one here." WANTED-A man to undertake the sale of a new patent medi- cine. The advertiser guarantees that it will be profitable to the under- taker. "Did you kill the moths 'with the moth balls I recommended?" asked the druggist. "No I didn't!" said the customer, "I sat up all night and didn't hit a single moth." A little boy had been punished by his mother one day and that at bed time he prayed thus: "Dear Lord, bless Papa, Sister Lucy and Brother Frank and Uncle Fred and Aunt Mary. Amen." Then looking up into his mother's face he said: "I suppose you noticed that you weren't in it." The fee simple and the sImple fee And all the fees entail, Are nothing when compared with thee, Thou best of fees-female. Johnnie: "Please give me another piece of cake, mother." Mother: "No more cake tonight, you will burst." Johnnie: "Then pass the cake and get out of the way."
