The Home Town
Some folks leave home for money
And some leave home for fame,
Some seek skies always sunny,
And some depart in shame.
I care not what the reason
Men travel east and west,
Or what the month or season-
The home town is the best.
The home town is the glad town
Where something real abidesg
'Tis not the money-mad town
That all its spirit hides.
Though strangers scoff and flout it
And even jeer its name,
It has a charm about it
No other town can claim.
The home skies seem bluer
Than skies that stretch away.
The home town friends seem truer
And kinder through the day:
And whether glum or cheery
Light-hearted or depressed,
Or struggle-fit or weary,
I like the home town best.
Let him who will, go wander
To distant towns to live,
Of some things I am fonder
Than all they have to give.
The gold or distant places
Could not repay me quite
For these familiar faces
That keep the home-town bright

Senior Class Poem
Dear friends and good people,
You must know by now
That to create a year book,
Stirs up quite a row,
So I'1l give you a hint
As to what it containsg
It's all about Seniors
And you'll find here their names.
Now Wilma comes first,
Well, yes, I should snore,
She shakes all the windows
And rattles the door.
But never the less,
She's a good girl at heart,
For she's already ready
To do more than her part.
Next we'll tell about one
Of our bright Senior boys 5
He's always hunting
Someone to annoy.
His name is R. Gregory,
And is capitalized 5
Well, why shouldn't it be,
.lust consider his size.
While Violet is just the opposite way,
While the cats are away, the mice they
But that isn't all that I have here to say.
She reads her lessons
And dreams them at night,
And by the next morning
She has them all right.
Now folks, I know when I say this,
That some of my statements are big,
But Mary's rules for success
Are mainly to get down and dig.
We've known her only a short while,
But this is sufficient I know,
For making a true friend like Mary,
To remember when life's tide is low.
Dayton, a friend to the friendless,
A helper in time of need.
I think he'll grow up as a farmer,
The cows and the horses to feed.

Just like an alarm clock, he's regular,
Wound at morning and night,
To awake and remind in the morning,
Of Time and its speedy flight.
Before I pass on to myself,
I want to lelate here a few
Of the things that Fern has accom-
And some of the things she can do.
She keeps books with precision and neat-
And with all of her schoolmates makes
Her grades are always the highest,
And to you her best wishes she sends.
I sometimes have queer feelings
That bother my indigestiong
But sometimes too late I recall them
When Mr. Wood asks a question.
Now, please folks, when you read this,
Don't turn to your neighbor and say:
I think that nut has gone crazy,
And is getting worse every day.
Bruce-bachelor, backward, brilliant.
Dayton-dangerous, doubtfall different.
Fern-fair, faithful, famous.
Mary-mighty, modest, mysterious.

Violet-vain, valuable, venturous.

Senior Class History
Twelve long years ago saw a joyous and carefree band of children enter the door
of the kindgdom of knowledge. There they stood on the first step, like all children,
curious to know what was in the cup called "Graduation", which sat upon the top step.
Each year they battled with knowledge until they had been in the conflict eight long
years. At this time the little group put away their instruments of play and pushed
open the door of the ninth step, which read High School.
This little band consisted of nine members, Fern, Violet, Bruce, Richard, Wilhel-
mina, DeForest, Nathan, Hazel and Thelma. The time Hew swiftly on. We had now
gained another step and assumed the name of Sophomoies. During this year we lost
two members, Nathan Doty and DeForest Hitchcock, and gained one new member,
Dayton Gerber, from Brimfield.
The following September we again entered the confiict on the eleventh step of
knowledge. Two members, Hazel Bartley and Thelma Ewalt, departed from our band
to join a similar band of Peoria High. Wilma Burt from Elmwood High joined our
band on this step.
The most exciting and remarkable' epoch of our journey has now arrived for we
are Seniors and stand on the twelfth step of knowledge with the cup of graduation in
our hands. Another member, Wilhelmina Burniga, departed from among usg but we
were joined by Mary Boone from the far East.
This little band of seven stand on the top step of knowledge, about to separate.
Long ago they dropped the title of carefree, but they still hold the ones of joyous and

Per R. H. G.
fTaken from Diary of Dick Gregory, Manager of New York Giants.J
April lst, 1946.-I Was in Brazl with my gang fthe New York Giants, I being
managerl. Today we have just defeated the Rio De Janerio's Llamas by a score of
14-0 and our lives were in serious danger all afternoon. However, we escaped by the
use of a fioating carpet. This device hasn't been patented yet, so I'll try to explain the
mechanism of this jitncy. It makes its own power by gathering electricity from the
air, running a propeller and the air force of this makes it go something like the pre-
historic airplane. Anyway, it bears the name of BRUCE TURL ,the inventor.
This name set me to thinking. Of course I remembered who this scientist was.
Also in the back of my memory I was reminded of that five' hundred dolllars I had
loaned him back when his inventions were not planning out. I decided to cancel this
debt as this machine had been very beneficial in our escape from the riotous crowd of
I turned on the radio and lo-behold. I heard a lecture from Chicago. Thb sub-
ject was very dry, something about the Pre-Raphael Tendencies of Babazion School,
I think, but the voice of the speaker along with his sharp arguments, witticisms and
his gay humor fascinated me. On listening longer, I discovered it to be a MR. DAY-
TON GERBER. These two incidents caused me to wonder about the rest of the
Class of '26.
ESXQQIT C The Melngil-1 'Qi'
l was pondering about this and at the same time idly glancing at a foreign
newspaper printed on a kind of cloth material that would not crease, wrinkle, burn
or tear. As I glanced over the headlines, I noticed in large type, UACTRESS SUES
WEALTHY MANUFACTURER." On reading further I discovered the actress' name
that only an Italian could pronounce. On consulting my atlas of the world Creally an
enlarged directoryj, I found her given name was WILMA BURT. After using the
smelling salts, I took another look at the sylph figure in the accompanying photograph,
and I used the old phrase, "Seeing is believing," and let it go at that.
About this time I was interrupted by a porter with the message, 'fGentleman
and lady to see you in the lobby." So I moseyed downstairs, expecting the worst.
The gentleman was very glad to make my acquaintance. His name' was Count De La
Mobile, but his wife made me guess who she was. Finally she explained her maiden
name was MARY BOONE, but you'd not permit me to call her anything but Countess.
I understood the' situation and promised not to reveal any of her past. Some of these
society dames make me tiredg afraid of making a bad break anytime. Otherwise, I
felt about her as one of my rookies who said: "Gosh, some guys are lucky," meaning
the Count. I introduced the Count to all the boys and left him for them to entertain.
I called Mar-pardon me+the Countess, aside and asked her about the rest of the
Class of '26. The only one she could give me any information about was SERGEANT
VIOLET QUINN, the Police Matron at Sing Sing in New York. She had charge of
all female offenders and is respected and feared by all who come before her. She is a
woman of ample proportions and a business frown. l was considerably shocked until
she explained that this was a very respected position today.
Now I began to take stock of my information, oh yes, I had them all but Fern.
How was I going to find her whereabouts. About this time I received a telephone
message saying that our waterboy, bat boy and official mascot, SAP SANDERSON, had
met with an accident in the street and had been taken to the hospital. I summoned
the chauffeur of the 1MagreJ Carpet and had him take me to the hospital. We ar-
rived in five seconds and found he had suffered only minor injuries which were dressed
and he could return with rs. Here was the solution to my pioblem. Who should pre-
sent herself but FERN, the head nurse of the establishment. We only had time to ex-
change the time of day, so to say, as she was up to her knees in work, as that is quite
a ways, I returned to the hotel. I began to think. "Was I as well off as I thought I
was?" I finally decided the rest of my class had outclassed me in some respects, but
this job I got ain't no snap. -R, Gu '26,

Farewell to All
Within the walls of T. C. H. S.,
For one short year l've wondered.
While others have struggled on and on,
Four years with smiles as well as tears.
We've had our "on" and "off" days both,
We've had our trials and sorrows,
But we had comfort in the thought,
We'1l have more glad tomorrows.
Our Freshman days were jolly days,
No troubles then we knew.
As Sophomores we were busier
With harder things to do.
In '24 when our Junior year came round,
With seven Juniors we came backg
But now as Seniors dignified
We've harder things to pack.
And as we traveled on this year,
Our Seniors year's been short,
But now as Alumni days are near
Our Senior days are short.
Our class must say good-bye to school.
We must say to all of you, adieug
And as we journey onward
We'll ever think of you.
Again I must say to you, oh schoolmates,
The Freshman to T. C. H. S. so newg
You Sophomores so all-important,
The Juniors tried and true.
We bid you good-bye forever,
We give you a sad adieug
But as We travel upward
We'll always remember you.
Now, classmates, we are leaving.
Yes, never to return.
But true to dear old T. H. S.,
Our heart flames e'er will burn.
And now good-bye my classmates.
We part for something new and bright,
But we will be forever '
True to the Purple and White.

Junior Class History
September, 1923, T. C. H. S. extended a hearty welcome to twenty ambitious
freshmen. We were introduced into the secrets of high school life by a mysterious
initiation so cleverly planned by the upper classmen.
Those of us who absorbed these secrets were: Miriam Bourne, Beulah Hurt,
Lucile' Brooks, Mildred Hammond, Ruth Karstetter, Margretta Morin, Theodosia And-
erson, Eugene Connell, Lloyd Richardson, Paul Dikeman, Berwyn Anderson, Lester
McCann, Wayne McKeever, Frank Ramshaw, Earl Baird, Grayton Gerber, Gladys Opie,
Warren Sandal, Addison Williamson and Russell Turl.
From the advice of our principal we found it necessary to organize. We then
elected the following omceis, also a class adviser, not because we wanted him, but be'-
cause we had to.
President ...........,,,.,...... . ..,...,.... Warren Sandal
Vice-President .... .... M iriam Bourne
Secretary ..,,.. ..,. E ugene Connell
Treasurer ..,.....,.,..,...,..,,....,....,.. Paul Dikeman
Class Adviser ................... . .,,........... Mr. Peters
We discovered during our freshman year that co-operation was one of the es-
sential elements of a successful school year.
In September 1924, eighteen classmates, having left behind Gladys Opie and
Warren Sandall, returned to seek more knowledge. We eagerly welcomed two new
students, namely, Loreane Huey and James Burt.
A few weeks later we gave a hearty reception for the Freshmen in the form of
a novel initiation.
During the second semester we lost James Burt, Addison Williamson, Frank
Ramshaw and Earl Baird, but gained one new member, Marguerite Milligan.
Shortly after the beginning of the school year, the following olricers were elected:
President ........,.......,.. ........,.....,. P aul Dikeman
Vice-President .,.....,.. . . ,Berwyn Anderson
Secretary and Treasurer ............. .... M iriam Bourne
Class Adviser ......................... . . .Harold Carter
Yea Juniors! Yea Juniors!
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Are we workers? Yes, you bet!
You can tell that by our pep!
Our class roll has dwindled to the number of ten, namely, Paul Dikeman, Presi-
dent, Thedosia Anderson, Vice-President, Loieane Huey, Treasurer, Wayne McKeever,
Secretary, Margretta Morin, Marguerite Milligan, Russell Turl, Berwyn Anderson,
Eugene Connell and Lloyd Rickardson.
We are noted for our uniqueness and frivolity, but back of it all is S-E-R-I-
O-U-S-N-E-S-S. We also are very talented. We boast of having four men on the
basketball squad, three girls members of the Glee Club and the Annual Cartoonist.
We have been doing our best to feed the hungry students and faculty once a
month, feeling that we have succeeded in this effort, we think that we are qualified
to occupy the vacant seats in the Senior row.

Junior Class Poem
Ten Jolly Juniors went to T. C. H. S.
Full of fun and mischief? Well, I guess yes.
And so a tale of these Juniors we'll tell.
Out of ten members, to us this lot fell.
Of Paul Dikeman we'll first recite.
On the basketball court, he's full of fight.
He's our president and full of fun,
But when the work comes, he's sure to run.
Loreane Huey heads our list of lasses.
She's always there, when it comes to classes.
She's ever quiet, not a word to say,
But near Greeniield's she's bound to stay.
There is a little boy comes to our school.
He almost never breaks a rule.
Wayne McKeever is our shorthand shark,
With the girls he's never tried to spark.
Next on the list, this space she'll fill,
Comes Marguerite Milligan, who's never still.
We can't stay she's fat, just pleasantly plump,
And she always keeps Richy on the jump.
Now Lloyd Richardson who has a Ford car,
And goes tr theaters both near and far,
When it comes English and DeFoe,
He shows us all, he's not slow.
Now we'l1 tell about the 6th on our list,
Theodosia Anderson's the name of the Miss.
When she's with Chum, she's also delirious,
And she often gets letters quite mysterious.
Now we have Russel Turl, Dude for short,
He's full of pep and a mighty good sport.
He puts up a fight on the basketball floor,
A backguard he is, that's all and no more.

We'll tell you about our famous trapper,
He's ne'er caught anything, not e'en a Happer.
If there's anything funny or mischievous afoot,
Eugene Connell is there, with more fun, to boot.
Margretta Morin is our cartoonist, you know.
In fun she's on hand to make her show.
At the typewriter too, she's a regular whiz,
To hear her pound would make you "diz".
Last we have Anderson, Berwyn by name.
He in basketball, has won his fame.
Speedy, we call him and it suits him, too.
If you're nice to him, he'll be nice to you.
Now we've told you of our Jolly Juniors ten.
We've already told you, but we'll tell you again.
We're a mighty good class, and full of fun,
And better classmates you could find none.

Sophomore Class History
This is Station T. C. H. S. broadcasting the Sophomore Class History. Yes, we
are those green freshmen that registered Septembei 1924. We felt rather green, but
decided to make the best of it and to make the freshman class the best ever. We had
completed our grade school course and were ready and anxious for the trials and trou-
bles of high school.
During our first year we enjoyed many pleasures and happy times, together with
the usual teasing.
We entered old T. C. H. S. feeling prouder than ever Septembei, 1925, as Sopho-
mores. We were so changed that the upper classmates did not recognize us. We had
left the green stage and entered into a more brilliant career. If anyone is inclined to
doubt this reformation, he can ask the faculty members who kept study hall when we
were freshmen and when we were sophomores.
The girls all entered the Glee Club for it was impossible to do without them.
The Loys won fame playing basketball.

Sophomore Class Poem
Of the Sophomore Class l'll try to tell,
A story that is known very well.
First comes "Wink" Williams, who lives far away,
And drives from Hanna in a Ford every day.
Next comes Warren Sandall, who after school is free,
To be our truthful referee.
Melba Jais to her love for Turl is devoted,
When a chance came her way, for him she voted.
Raymond Huey, "Ray" for short,
To his sister he is never an escort.
Otto Linck, the "Sheik" as a rule,
Is greatly in love with a Freshman in school.
Margaret Kirkman, a fair little lass,
Generally called the flapper of the class.
Frank Anderson, for him studies are a snap,
When asked for his lesson has just that.
Lewis Howerter, always found deep

Mildred Arnold, a studious little miss,
For her studies and school are bliss.

But to a boy in North Dakota she has given her heart.

Freshmen Class History
'tSchool days, school days,
Dear old golden rule days,"
That old song comes ringing through my mind as I think of the happy, free-
hearted children who first boarded the ship, t'Education," on that bright September
morning just nine years agcsrosy checked lasses and sturdy lads trodding along with
uncertain steps. Six or seven ran eagerly for the shore, anxious to board the ship.
The water was still at first, and the good old ship drifted slowly for several
terms, but through the guidance of our pilot we gained such an enormous Q73 amount
of knowledge that it seemed as though our little minds could hardly contain it all.
How quickly time flies! Before we realized it, we had passed several ports.
How eagerly we rushed up the gang plank. After looking around, we found, to our
great sorrow and disappointment, that many of our schoolmates had fallen overboard,
but we were glad when we had looked around and saw that several more youngsters
were ready to join us.
One happy day we arrived at the port of Graduation. and when we walked out
to receive our passports into that great port called "The Community High School," we
were almost overwhelmed by our feeling of great importance.
That vacation was a long one-from the trip between that t'Eighth Grade Islandt'
to this great port. Again we counted the survivors and found that we were two of a
group of eighteen bright, happy children.
On the first morning we Wended our way up to the wonderful Assembly Hall
and intermingled with the great and wise people. We were often called 'tGreenies,"
but we didn't mind that as We were wise enough to know that as long as We were
green we would keep growing.
During the first month our crew, which was composed of Bernard Anderson,
Edwin Anderson, Anita Andrews, Archie Andrews, John Bane, Ray Beecher, Wilda
Baggs, Viola Bontz, Carl DeWeerth, Evelyn Glasford, Earl Harper, Gerald G. Higgs,
Paul Higgs, Gerald Hufman, Donald McCann, Ruby Ramshaw, Goldie Weeks and Les-
ter Willms, was organized with Evelyn as President, Paul as Vice-President, Ray as Sec-
retary and Goldie as Treasurer. We were sorry to have Lester leave us the first month.
We thought our crew was being distinguished when Paul was placed on the
basketball team, but when the school organized a Pep Society, Gerald Huffman was
called forth to be its yell leader. We were victorious when we won our basketball game
with the Senior Class during the Inter-Class Tournament, but when we played the
Juniors, we- Oh, We can't tell! Our school could hardly have had a Glee Club if our
girls hadn't gone forward with their melodious voices.
Our crew was highly entertained at a Christmas party at Edwin's country home
during December. Yes, there was a Christmas treat with a present on it for each
good boy and girl there.
We realize we have three more ports to enter before our voyage on the t'Educa.
tion" is ended, but we feel that after we have completed this voyage, we will be ready
to embark on the ship of 'tLife,', each to go his own way.

Freshman Class Poem
Bernard Anderson, you know,
Is quiet where'er he may go.
Edwin Anderson is a fine little man,
He studies some days as hard as he can.
Anita is our Freshman blonde,
Of whom, we admit, we are all very fond.
Archie Andrews, light complexioned? Yes!
But mischievous? Well I guess!
To his mother, I am told,
John Bane is worth his weight in gold.
Then we have "Beecher," whose other name's Ray,
He has his lessons every day.
"Dimples", you know, was the queen from the start,
Of a. very good looking Sophomo1e's heart.
Viola's home is far away, near the "Ridge" we are told,
She never minds the weather, but comes though warm or cold.
Next comes Harper, otherwise called Earl,
Who says he's fond of an Andrews girl.
Carl D.eWeerth, a farmer lad,
Who at noise making isn't half so bad.
Evelyn Glasford has dark curly hair,
And she and Archie make a real pair.
Who is this? Why, Gerald Higgs,
He helps his father feed the pigs.
Paul Higgs is our Freshman basketball star,
At shooting baskets he's not below par.
"Huffy" will beat every boy' we fear,
In the number of girls' rings he'll wear this year.
Donald McCann comes next on our list,
He's one' of whom we know will do his best.
Ruby's a brunette with black eyes and hair,
Not very much of her, but she's all there.
Last, but not least, comes Goldie Weeks,
It's rumored that she's fond of a Texan sheik.

The Macomb Tourney '26
Did we go to the Macomb Tournament? Boy! I'1l say we did. Mr. Wood and the
boys left Trivoli at nine o'clock on Thursday morning, February 4 in two closed cars.
The -thermometer was clown around ten above with rain and 'snow freezing on the
windshield all day. We arrived in Peoria about a quarter of ten and at Canton about
eleven o'clock. We pulled into Bushnell at twelve, ate dinner and arrived in Macomb
in time to see the greater part of the first game in the afternoon which was scheduled
at one o'clock.
We left the last game early in order that we might eat early. We were scheduled
to play Terre Haute at seven that evening and while we were at supper we got our
first glimpse of them. They were all big heavy fellows and we immediately decided
that we should have to go some if we beat them. '
We were staying at the Park Hotel through the tournament, we now received
orders to go to our rooms and rest for an hour or two
That game was a thriller. The boys got away to a slow start, Terre Hauge gain-
ing several points lead. The boys came back and the score see-sawed back and forth
until the last quarter when Terre Haute gained several points. Williams went out
of the game for good in this quarter due to a 'tCharley Horse". The boys had shown
plenty of fight in the earlier part of the game but now they came back with nothing
left but the old school spirit which proved itself true blue. Terre Haute had three
points lead with a minute and a half to go. The boys came back and tied the score
which necessitated the playing of a three minute overtime period. The score re-
mained tied for the greater part of this period when Dikeman made a foul. The game
ended Terre Haute 19, Trivoli 20.
We were now scheduled to play Versailles at eight the following evening. They
were a strong team and we knew it. However, we spent the next day with compara-
tive ease of mind, taking in all the games and enjoying ourselves.
Several telegrams came in that afternoon from the school and faculty, showing
that the old school spirit was cropping out there also.
At eight p. m., we came on the f'loor determined to put forth our last effort. The
game was on even terms in the first half 'but in the second half the boys steadily
drew away from them, the score reading 10-.18 in favor of Trivoli.
This put us in the semi-finals to play Brimfield the next afternoon at -two o'clocl:.
We stood on even terms with Brimfield, having lost one game to them and taken
one earlier in the season. The game however, was Brimfielcl's soon after the first
quarter was over, due to several lucky shots and the hand of Fate.
This gave us the chance to play Good Hope for third place that night. The
Good Hope five had a strong aggregation but we had beaten them once previously in
the season. The first half was on even terms, with Trivoli on the larger end of a
short margin. In the second half the boys had no difficulty in holding their own and
in adding a few more points. The score at the last gun stood 22-14 favor of Trivoli.
We were the holders of the third place trophy, making the third consecutive year for
We stayed at Macomb until the next morning which was Sunday and engaged
in several pillow fights during the night, finally going to bed about four o'clock. We
arrived home about half past one, all in the best of spirits.

The Melnoir '
On Friday evening, December 18, the T. C. H. S. basketball squad, accompanied
by a group of loyal fans. journeyed to Manual to participate in a hard-fought struggle
on Manual Hoor.
A peppy crowd of forty people boarded a specially chartered bus, which was
supposed to hold only twenty-tive passengers. Were we crowded? I'll say we were,
but what did we care.
We reached Manual about an hour before the game and were highly entertained
by a demonstration of the Charleston. Oh, no, it wasn't by Trivoli.
The whistle blew and the game started. It progressed fast and furiously, our
boys :raveling the length of the long Hoor with the speed and clever plays.
Although the boys fought hard and were encouraged by many cheers from the
side lines, they were beaten by a score of 25-17.
After the game the entire Trivoli crowd went to Van's Restaurant whe1'e they
revived their depressed feelings with refreshing food.
Much fun, cheering, singing, and joking were indulged in on the homewarrl
journey. Did the lights go out? Yes, but they came on again all too soon.
Canton Invitation Tournament
Hurrah! Hear the news? We are to play Beardstown Monday afternoon, De-
cember 28. Will we win? We are going to try mighty hard!
Great excitement buzzed through old T. C. H. S. when this news was received.
Little was known of our fateful foe, except that they had a good team and had
won m-any of the games on their schedule.
On Monday, December 28, T. C. H. S. basketball squad. accompanied by Coach
D. L. Wood and Ed Morin, departed at 10:30 via Nash and Maxwell for Canton.
Wie reached Canton at 12 bells and went immediately to the high school gym.
At 1:15 we trounced upon the floor determined to do our best. The game progressed
ra-ther slowly as Trivoli had hard luck in getting started. When the final gun was
fired the score stood 20 to 11 in favor of Beardstown.
Were we down-hearted? No! Not when we discovered the fact that Beardstown
won the tournament and that they had beaten other teams by a greater score than they
The team stayed to see the evening games and had a pleasant journey home
After winding up the regular season of Baskegball, T. C. H. S. journeyed to
Peoria Manual to take part in the District Tournament. On Friday morning, March
5 at 10 o'clock the curtain rose for Trivoli. A good game in which Buda was de-
feated was witnessed by all present. A second game was played Friday evening
at seven o'clock. Trivoli was again victorious over Princeville, This game was even
better than the Buda game of the morning. The two teams were well matched and
the score was tied several times during the game. When the final whistle blew a
Princeville boy made a double foul on Chum. With two more poinzs we stood with
a score equal to the score of the morning game,

On Saturday we met Averyville in the semi-finals. This was a hard fought
game, but as our boys were no match for the Averyville lads we lost the game. At
eight o'clock Trivoli met Wyoming. The game was a walk-away with a score of
34 to 8. This was the second tournament we had won third place in.
Williams was high point man of the tournament with a total of forty-eight points.
Two other men were well up the line. The whole town was very proud of their
team. This spirit was shown by the turn out at this tournament.

Memoir 1 -neg?
On November 20, an excited, nervous crowd of people, young and old, assembled
at Trivoli corners. Why were we so excited? Our high school basketball team was
journeying to Glasford and of course we could not let them go unattended. Two
busses had been chartered -to accommodate the reoters and at five o'clock sharp they
Everyone pushed, jostled, hurried, and joked as they tried to crowd upon thc
busses. Alt last we were off amid a great deal of cheering. School songs and cheers
floated out upon the night air and brought many inquisitive persons to their from
doors or windows to stare with open mouths at our gallant troupe.
In Peoria the small bus was exchanged for a larger one, then we proceeded more
comforiably upon our way.
Oh, yes, the passengers of the big yellow bus were forced to walk up a moun-
tain, but as several ladies only lost their rubbers and fell down a few times it was
not considered so serious after all.
We announced our arrival in Glasforcl with yells and songs and went at once
to the high school gym.
The first game of the evening was not very encouraging as T. C. H, S. second
team was defeated by a score of 12 to 1.
The T. C. H. S. regulars had an easy walk-away, the score standing 15 to 2 in
favor of Trivoli as the final whistle blew.
The return trip resembled the triumphant march of Caesar for we were mur-
muring, "We camel We saw! We conquered!"
Wfe stopped at Peoria for lunch then journeyed home a tired but happy bunch.
The inter-class basketball tournament to decide the champion team of T. C.
H. S. was held in the high school gym on October 20 and 21.
Can friends and classmates be rivals? Indeed they can and were, as we soon
The first night the contestants were the Freshmen v-s. Seniors and the Sopho-
mores vs. Juniors.
The games were exciting and amusing. The Freshmen wrested a 14 to 12
victory over the Seniors and the Juniors defeated the Sophomores by a score of
14 to 11. C
The second evening the Freshmen were defeated by the Juniors, the sco1'e
standing 28 to 10, The Sophomores and Seniors played for third place and the Sopho-
mores won, the score being 40 to 15.
The Juniors were the champions of T. C. H. S. while the Freshmen held the
honor of sec-ond place.

Girls' Basketball Games
Can girls play basketball? Of course we can for we have proved it. Two games
were played with the Alumni and we were victorious both times. Much fun was
had while pracgieing for these games and great rivalry was stirred up between the
On Friday evening we trounced upon .he floor feeling rather foolish, but never-
theless determined. The game was very speedy and exciting but proved very humor-
ous to the spectators. The high school girls were vietorious, the score standing 4 to 1.
The second game played with :lie Alumni girls was played on December 16, and
we were again victorious. The score was 15 to 4.
The best game of the season was that between the Illini and Trilovhico girls.
The players of the regular team were some on one side and some on the other, so
of course each team was. determined to do or tie. Much exeitemeng buzzed through
school and both teams were in a state of nervous prostration when they walked upon
the floor to meet familiar faces, this time as rivals. The game was all thai had been
expected and then some. Both sides fought hard and at the end of the first quarter
the score was 0 to 0. The second quarter was even faster and more furious than
t-he first and the Trilovhicos scored one basket. The second half proved more favor-
able to the Illini clan and when the final whistle blew the score was 8 to 2 in favor
of the Illini.

Our society was organized four years ago, but feeling that there
were some green Freshmen that might crave admittance to our select
and aristocratic society, each year we hold a meeting at the beginning
of the term. Last fall on October 9, we elected the following officers
and took in all our share of wistful Freshmen. William Williams was
chosen as president, Bruce Turl as vice-president, and Russell Turl as
secretary and treasurer. Our capable oiiicers have carried us through
the year '25-'26 with great success. Although we have been defeated
by the Illini on various occasions, we still have the grand old Trilo
spirit. We have showed that we can lose with a smile and sporting
grace. We stand for fair dealing and good fellowship, and a better
school. It is doubtful whether many such societies are to be found.

Illini Literary Society
Four years ago our school was divided into two parts. One of
these groups was given the name of "Illini", This was the beginning
of our now strong and powerful literary society.
Each year we have added new members to our group until now
we stand with thirty-three honorary and twenty-one social members.
The Illinis have met the Trilovhico in several battles and contests.
We have been very lucky with our victories. Last year we won the
big loving cup, which was given for championship of a spelling, Memoir
and basketball contest.

Girls' Glee Club
The above named organization was founded in T. C. H. S., Sep-
tember, 1924. lt being a new feature of the extra-curricular activities
many diiiiculties presented themselves. The main one being finance.
Nevertheless the girls were very enthusiastic to have such a club and
volunteered to buy their own music. Mimeographed copies were also
used to help keep down the burden.
Voices were tested and many good ones were discovered and a
few, with practice in concert work, could be greatly improved. Of
course no one girl had had special voice training, a fact which made
the chance for all equal.
The members of the Club during 1924-1925 were:

lieved them greatly as to finances, and sang for many other occasions.
They also believe in mixing merriment with work and between July
29 and August 3 they camped at Shady Beach, when they enjoyed
swimming, cooking and resting C?J, Mr. and Mrs. Wood accompanying.
When school opened in September, 1925, only six of the old mem-
bers were back. But due to our large Freshman class we increased the
number to 13.

of public education that aims to make every child an intelligent, useful

The success of the Glee Club was due to the work of our director,

T. C. H. S. Commercial Club l
A new club was formed this year for the purpose of promoting
interest in the business world and to encourage a social spirit among
commercial students by offering opportunities for social contact, and
so that the students would become more conversant with modern, pro-
gressive business methods, and systems, endeavoring by such means to
raise and maintain a higher standard of efliciency. Also, to discover
and serve the needs of the community. This club was given the title
of, "T. C. H. S. Commercial Club". It was organized November 6,
1925 with eighteen members, the officers of said club being:

Gerald Hulfman was our faithful cheer leader.
Small megaphones trimmed with purple and white ribbons, four athletic and

A song and yell contest was staged. A number of new yells and songs were
handed in. Gerald Huffman won a medal with the best yell and Margretta Morin
a medal with the best song.
Each year as T. C. H. S. grows larger and better we hope for a larger and better

Get Acquainted Party
The first party of the year given by T. C. H. S. was held in the
High School Gym, Friday evening, September 25. This event was
planned as a "coming out" party for the Freshmen. When the students
assembled they were divided into three groups. The entertainment
was in the form of a track meet between the three groups.
A delightful lunch was served, consisting of fruit salad, wafers,
and cocoa, after which everyone adjourned, hoping there would be
another party in the near future, and thanking the committee for their
efforts in making the party a success.
Time-6:30 P. M. Place-Home of Richard Gregory. When-
Tuesday, January 5, 1926. In honor of whom?-Basketball team.
The faculty went too. Yes, even Miss Fisher and Mrs. Wood, you
see Richard didn't forget them.
The Gregory's proved indeed to be real entertainers and cooks,
for such eats as we had and how everyone relished everything. The
table was prettily decorated in purple and white, the athletic colors.
During the dinner hour we were further entertained by the radio,
bringing to our ears, the voices of Goldie and Dustie. whom all enjoyed.
When we finished our eats we retired for a social hour, of course
basketball being the main topic of conversation. Nevertheless it is an
important one and one that deserves much study.
Then Home James! But we shall not forget the treat Richard and
the good time with Mother and Dad.

Historic Kid Party
On Wednesday evening, December 23, the students of T. C. H. S.
together with the faculty gathered in the assembly for a Pre-Historic
kid party. Promptly at 7 230 the students who were dressed as children,
changed into animals. Wilma Burt, the mistress of ceremonies, led the
procession of animals upstairs and through Mystery Cave. The an-
imals Were then divided into teams in accordance with the teams of
the Woman's Home Companion sale. The blue team, being the hon-
ored team were very delightfully entertained by games and stunts car-
ried on by the Green and Red team.
Later in the evening a delightful lunch of ice cream sandwiches
and all-day suckers were served, which suited the occasion.
In the course of the next half hour sleigh bells were heard and
Santa Claus arrived. He distributed the many gifts that had been
placed on the Christmas tree, not forgetting our big sacks from the

When a Feller Needs a Friend
School dragged out unmercifully long that spring day, it seemed to Tommie.
The more he tried to study, the sleepier he got. His attention was m-ostly divided
between looking at the clock and gazing around the school room.
Tommie sighed. Would school never be out? He looked at the teacher to
see if that individual was particularly interested in anything he did. Just then
something happened. He saw a big spider slowly weaving his way downward and-
he was aiming directly for the professor's bald head! Tommie forgot his sleepiness.
He forgot his lessons, forgot to watch the clock, forgot everything but that spider.
He watched it come closer and closer. Gee, but it was slow. He bet if he was a
spider, he'd make it snappy. Maybe it wouldn't get to its destination beforfe school
was out. What if it didn't? And then suddenly it did get there! The slender -thread
snapped and the spider bounced d-own on the professor's head. In his excitement,
Tommie forgot himself and before he knew it, he yelled out, "Boy! He's there!!"
The professor bent an angry gaze in Tommie's direction, but was not sure who
the guilty person was, so he said nothing. Tommie 'thought he knew what that
silence meant. He would be punished later.
Oh, how the minutes dragged for guilty Tommie. He could see it all-.how the
professor would call him to his desk and maybe slap his hands-or, horror of horrors,
even send him to the principal's oliice! All through that last class, poor Tommie
suffered. How those kids would laugh at him! At last it was time for school to be
out. Now something would happen!
"Put away your books!" came the order.
"Thomas Barnes, will you please come up to my desk?"
At last it had come! Well, he'd show 'em he could be a hero, anyway! White-
faced, he started for the iteacher's desk. My, but that assembly was long. He hadn't
known it was so long. At last he was there-before the professor and that sea of
"Thomas," Qwell, they might as well get it over Wirth, Tommie thought.J "Will
you please take this note up to Miss Durham, in room J?" V
"Yes sir, Mr. Gardner! Anything else you wish, sir?"
Tommy was so relieved and happy that he saluted as he left the room, leaving the
professor to smile in wonderment at Tommie's unusual politeness!

The Unfortunate Thief
As John Day stood in the door of the log cabin looking at the man he had just
killed, he thought of the easy life he would have from now on. He laughed as he
thought how easy it was to kill his partner and sieal the gold he had dug.
It was a windy day as John prepared for a long journey across the large des-
ert toward Mexico. As he rode away he looked at the lonesome place, where his
partner lay dead and wondered how long it would be before the body would be
found. He thought however, he would be across the border, living in luxuries before
he could be caught. It was a forty mile journey to the first water-ihole. He reached
this a little after night fall. As he lay there that night, he thought how lucky he
was, and went to sleep with happy thoughts.

He arose the nexg morning at daybreak and started his journey to the next
water-hole, which was the farthest away. He knew if he could only make this he
would be safe. The journey that day was very hard. He thought several times of
giving it up, but the thought of gold in his pocket renewed his spirit. About mid-
night he reached this water-hole, After feeding and watering his horse and himself
he made ready for the night. He had not been asleep long when he suddenly
awoke. He saw two gleaming yellow eyes shining out of the darkness. He mov-
ed a little. Just as the cat leaped, he felt an iron grip on his leg. He got his gun,
which was by his side and as the cat backed otf and leaped a second time, he shot
and by accident the bullet went tiue and the cat dropped dead. He knew his leg'
was broken so he set to work bandaging it.
When morning dawned, he knew he could not move on because of his broken
leg. Late in the atlernoon, he saw five small spots coming toward him. He groan-
ed if that is the sherilf, I am gone. As the group drew closer, he saw it was as
expected. t'John Day, you are under arrest", said the sheriff. It happened that we
were hunting s.ollen cattle, when we happened in at your cabiin. After finding
your pardner dead we started hunting for clues. Looking around we found the
bullet that had been discharged in the gun was yours, you being the only man who
used that size cartridge. You are Lhe guilty one, so we immediately started after
you. UI thought I was a lucky man", said John, but now my mind is greatly changed.
I might have known something would happen. I am ready to go with you."

I sometimes think as I study
Of the past four years of schoolg
Of the hundreds of lessons I've mastered
But more often the Golden Rule.
The dear old building so ugly
Where pleasant mem'ries resideg
No one can realize its meaning,
Who looks in from the outside.
I think of the good times we've had there,
And the work that we've struggled through,
It's a place where you work and you play,
And each has his share to do.
So let's all join hands and rejoice
That we've got a school like ours
For in late years I'm sure you'll realize,
Its much like God's gifts of Howers.
The Howers we know are all pretty
But of no use to us in this world.
I wonder what this earth would be like
If there were no flowers unfurled.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN, an honest self-made man, who later became president of
the Uniied States.
STEPHEN DOUGLAS, a rival of Mr. Lincoln.
FRANCIS BELL, a friend of Mr. Douglas.
WILLIAM SAMSON, a true friend of Mr. Lincoln.
BILLIE HART, a small admirer of Honest Abe. l
Time: The day before the great Lincoln- Douglas Debate.
Place: In the library of Mr. Douglas' home in Springfield, Illinois
Enter Bell and Douglas.
Bell: I understand that a young man by the name of Abraham Lincoln has
challenged you to debate about the slavery question. What kind of a man is he?
Douglas: From what I have heard of Mr. Lincoln he is a self-made man, hav-
ing no education, but that which he received through his own efforts. There are
many stories which tell what a studious boy he was and how he would walk many
miles to borrow a book to read or study, He is well versed in the Bible and people
say he is extremely honest.
Bell: Yes, I have heard about his honesty. One time while he was clerking
in a store he overcharged a woman for some of hor purchases. Discovering the fact
after the lady had left the store, he walked many miles that evening to give the
lady the few pennies he owed her. Though he is our rival, I must say I canno: but
admire such a man. y
Douglas: I have not as yet personally met "Honest Abe", but am quite anxious
to do so. I think I shall not have much trouble winning the debate because of Lin-
coln's lack of education. I should like very much to find out some of his ideais con-
cerning slavery so I can have answers prepared for all his arguments.
Bell: I'll tell you, we will send little Billie Hart. He is a bright, intelligent
boy, and have him play the spy. In that way we will discover all of Lincoln's
ideas about slavery.
Douglas: Now, Billie, you understand exac.ly what you are to do. Make
friends with Mr. Lincoln, then come and tell us all he says about slavery.
Billie: Yes sir, but how shall I know Mr, Lincoln when I see him at the tavern?
Does he like little boys like me?"
Bell: Mr. Lincoln is over six feet tall and is not what anyone would call
handsome. He is extremely awkward and is continually telling funny s.ories. All
you will have to do is to ask the Innkeeper which is Old Abe and he will be sure
Douglas: Now Billie, you be sure to keep your eyes and ears open and re-
member all you see and hear.
Billie: I'll do my best, sir.
Douglas: Well, that is settled. I sincerely hope he will be able to secure the
informazion we desire. CExit.j

That evening in the 'ABlue Goose Tavern," located a short distance from Spring-
SCENE 1: A group of men in one of the large rooms of the tavern. One man
seems to be the center of the group and is continually telling funny stories or dis-
cussing ithe most important questions of the time. The men eagerly await the man's
words and silence reigns supreme while he is talking. The men become so interested
in what he is :saying that they forget to sneer and make their usual insulting remarks.
Billie: Say, Mr. Innkeeper, can you tell me which of that gang is Mr. Lincoln?
I've got some awful important business with him.
Innkeeper: Certainly, my boy. That tall fellow standing by the fireplace doing
all that laughing and cutting up is Old Abe.
Billie: Thank you Mister. I wonder if he is too busy to pay any attention to
a little fellow like me? He looks like a real kind man and I bet you he wouldn't do
anything wrong. I believe I'll just listen for a while so I can hear what he says.
Samson: Well, Abe, since we are all friends gathered here this evening, I
want to ask you a question. What will our country come to if this slavery question
isn't settled and if all of the southern states secede from the union?
Lincoln: Samson, my friend, I cannot tell exactly, but I do know one thing
"A housegdivided against itself, cannot siand. We must all hang together or we
must hang separately." I hope and pray that our union may not be dissolved and
if the south does secede, that it will not be for any length of time bu-t that by Gfod's
will it will be possible for us to be one strong united nation.
Billie: Say, Mr. Lincoln, do you think the negroes should be slaves?
Lincoln: Why hello, sonny. Where did you come from? I don't believe I
know your name but I know that if all boys were as interested enough in our
national affairs to ask such questions as that, we should be a rich country indeed.
Won't you tell me your name, my boy?
Billie: Yes sir. My name is Billie Hart. I have been hearing a great deal
about the slavery question and, oh sir, woulc'n't I like to hear that debate tomorrow?
Lincoln: Would you Billie? Well I believe we can plan some way so you may
go to hear the debate. Would you like to go with me,'Billie? I love to have the
company of many little fellows like you but I'm afraid you will find me rather tire-
Billie: O.h, mister, could I really go with you? You are the kindest man I
have ever 'seen and I'm sure I'l1 have a fine time, but mister, do you think those
negroes should be made to work so hard?
Lincoln: My boy, have you ever heard the quotation, f'All men are created
equal?" I don't think that sounds as though any man, no matter what his color or
nationality, should be superior over any other human being. Do you? I dislike
very much to think that some of our human race are treated so cruelly, though I do
not think it would be a wise plan to free the slaves just now. Billie, tell me your
opinion concerning this entire affair.
Billie: Mr. Lincoln, I don't know very much about such things but I believe
what you say and I'll bet my old straw hat- that you win the debate tomorrow. I'm
for you every time.
Lincoln: Thank you my son, but perhaps you had better run home now but
meet me here at the tavern tomorrow morning at eight o'c1ock. Good-night Billie.
Billie: Good-night. Thank you sir.

SCENE 2: Douglas and Bell are anxiously awaiting the return of Billie. They
are in the library of the home of Douglas.
D-ouglas: Hello Billie, what did you find out? Tell me at once.
Billie: Mr, Douglas, I found out that Mr. Lincoln is :he bets man on earth
and he is one of those stuck-up fellows like most famous men. He w0uldn't say
anything against anybody and I'm for him every time. He is real jolly and so kind
He promised to take me to the deba.e tomorrow.
Bell: But tell us what he said about slavery. Hurry!
Billie: Sir, I refuse to do that because I like Mr. Lincoln too well to repeat
any of the things he said to me. Why, he treated me as though I was his equal.
No sir. I'm sorry but I won't betray Mr. Lincoln's confidence.
The grea, debate is Over and Billie had the great pleasure of seeing his idol
win the victory from Mr. Douglas. Billie, much to his satisfaction and pride, was
allowed to sit on the platform beside Mr. Lincoln while the debate was going on.
Billie as well as the rest of the audience was deeply stirred by the few simple, im-
pressive szatements derived from the depths of Mr, Lincoln's soul.
SCENE 1: Parlor of the Blue Goose Tavern. The time is the evening after
Lincoln: Well Billie, did you enjoy yourself today? Mr. Douglas made a fine
talk and used wonderful arguments. Always remember, Billie, that you have heard
a great oration by a great man.
Billie: Yes sir. I will always remember it and also how kind you were to
me. I musg go home now but I want to tell you I have enjoyed every minute today
very much. Thank you sir and good-bye.
Lincoln: Samson, there goes a boy after my own heart. He will make a fine
honest man some day.
Samson: Yes, Abe, and your talk today will influence his entire life. Are you
going to accept the nomination to be president of the United States?
Lincoln: I cannot tell, Samson, if it is the wish of the people and I think I am
capable, I shall undertake tha: great task. 1Exit both.J
Enter Innkeeper, Bell and Douglas.
Innkeeper: Lincoln has won more honors today and has been nominated for
president. When a small boy, someone asked Lincoln what he intended to be and
he replied, "A man first then as God pleases." He is a man the nation will be
proud of some day. His praises will be sung by every tongue in the land and his
name held sacred to every living person in the United States. 1Exit.J

That things are best when duly earned,
That play and fun are found in Work,

And getting even just for spite
Doesn't always pay
For the fact is, it is very apt
To work the other way.

The Last Roll Call
School had been in session for four years at Littleton. It was a small town but
the rural students made an enrollment of a hundred. The pupils were all striving'
hard to receive their education. The last year was a year of work and struggle to
keep the school in session. Many people wished to change the school to a larger
town nearby. The next summer was the time for voting for the final decision.
It was in April, just one week before the end of the term. As usual, the prin-
cipal was calling the roll.
"Miss A-dams." "Present" "Miss Brown." "Present" And so on wit'h all
He stood up and all the students noticed his face carried a troubled expression,
"I am sorry to say, but this may be the last year We will all assemble for our
roll call. I have spent four happy years with you and I sure hope I may spend four
more here. We are all very anxious to be here next year, but it remains unanswered
until this summer."
As he was talking, the Ere bell upstairs rang out loud and clear. It did not sound
as the usual fire drill bell, but carried a Weird sound. The students all marched out
and at a glance at the roof they saw one blaze of flames shooting upward. The peo-
ple gathered and all aid possible was given, but the Wind had made it impossible to
check the awful Hames.
"Professor Dalton!" A cry rang out. "Where is he?"
At a glance over the crowd. I saw he was not there. The people had given up
the fight, it was hopeless. We had to stand and waich the dear old high burn, the
place where we had shared sorrows and joys.
Another cry, "Where is the principal?"
One of the pupils answered, "I saw him go into the attic to fight the flames
but I thought he came back down."
The people realized it was too late. The flames were soaring far into the air.
A crash!! It collapsed!
Amid the charred ruins, Professor Dalton's body was found, beyond identifica-
tion. We had lost our old high and the dear professor. It was his last roll call.

Ode to Today
Ah! Today! We look upon your bright countenance with awe in
our blinking gaze and, you our heart, for you have brought in the
You, just a day that has come swiftly and will pass more so. In
Vain we try to catch and hold you, a while longer, and although you
pass as swiftly as your fleeing sisters, you have smiled more graciously
upon us. Ah! Never to be forgotten day, although the cold may come
again, never can it chill our hearts more this spring, for we shall think
of you, Today, and remember that you have promised Spring and we
know you promised true.
As we start home from school We shall wonder why we wore our
heavy coats on a day like you, and we shall recollect, rather vaguely
that you were quite chilly this morning and that indeed our fingers were
quite cold when we reached school. We shall look upon you, as you
now stand, warm, mild and sunny, and wonder if it be so, then we shall
laugh and pronounce you, lovely Today, "Not Guilty".

Lad, A Faithful Companion
Mr. McMarllen, a wealthy merchant of New York, came to the mountains for
his health. His wife had died early last fall and he had been very lonesome during
the winter. His only son was in South America at the head of a nation-al banking'
concern. He had gone to the family doctor who told him to go to a higher altitude.
It was not easy for him to give up his work, for he was now a 'man of seventy years
of age and had worked with the same concern for fifty years. The docgor told him
he would not live long if he stayed in the city, but if he would spend the summer
in the mountainsfand the winter in California, he might be able to take the trip to
South America he had planned for so long.
He left New York one mforning early in May. He dreaded the summer for he
had always lived in New York. He thought the mountains would be such a lonely
place, having never been west of Chicago and not knowing a man in the west. He
entered Denver one evening a week later. When he left the hotel, after getting
a room and having supper, he was going to see the town. He became acquainted
with several men from the east. The west was far' different from the east. It was
so easy to get acquainted with people here.
Several dayslater he learned from a friend that he could secure a cottage in
the mountains thirty 'miles by train to a small station with a store where he could
secure suppliesg and then eight miles south of the station the little cabin stood on
the south side of -the cliff overlooking the valley. It was all furnished complete with
a radio. His friend told him to take a dog with him and he would never get lone-
The first of June he set out from the station in the mountains with his dog, Lad,
a German police dog, and a pack of supplies on his back. He was a diH"erent man.
He had become acquainted with men who had promised to come and see him and show
him the mountains. These men were really friends, so different from those he knew
in New York.
One evening two months later, he sat in his cabin with a halfbreed, Strongheart,
Whom he had met two weeks before. Strongheart had disobeyed the laws of his tribe
and had run away io escape punishment. He had spent the last eight months roam-
ing in the wilderness.
During the next few weeks the man saw much of the half-breed. The man
having taken up the work of a gold-seeker for a hobby, the two often went together,
but Lad never liked Strongheart. He would growl and show his teeth every .time the
halfbreed appeared, although his master always scolded him for it. Mr. McMarllen
went out one day by himself and by chance discovered a rich vein of gold. The
next day he went to the station to secure a claim. As he was returning home he
made up his mind no: to let the halfbreed know of it. He would leave the mountains
now in a week for Denver where he would meet his son, now in the United States
on a vacation, who would accompany him to California, where he would spend the
One night as he was returning home after a walk over the clifils near the cottage,
Stronghean: came running around the cliff. The old man looked astonished and
was going to 'speak when the dog jumped at the halfbreed's throat. The old man
stood back amazed. He -did not even make an attempt to stop the dog. After a
hard struggle -:he half-breed fell over the cliff. The dog looked up in Mr. McMarllen's
face with a satisfied look in his eyes. But he had not seen the half-breed's actions
when he had come near them as the dog had, and sent the dog from him. When Mr.
McMarllen came to the foot of the precipice, the half-breed was gone. He did not

undersiand this until he reached the cabin. The door stood open and nothing was
in its place. Strongheart had been there before him and robbed him of all his pos-
sessions including the claim. The half-breed had watched him put it away the night
The next afternoon when he left for the station, the sky was overcast and the
wind was blowing. It would snow before night. The old man had lost his dog and
Strongheart whom he thought to be a true friend had betrayed him. When he was
ye-t three miles from the station, the blizzard overtook him. In a short time he had
lost his way. It was snowing hard and the path was no longer visible. He could
go no further. When he was giving up his last hope, he heard Lad bark.
That night as he sat in the hotel with his son telling him of the adventure, he
patted his dog on the head and thought of the trip through the blizzard, which the
dog had lead him safely through. He said, "A dog is a fine companion and some-
times proves to be even more true than a man." M. M. A., '28.
Little ragged Bobbie was playing in the street. It was more of an alley, show-
ing parts of the underworld. He hated to go home, home, ig could hardly be called
that, with only two small, dark rooms, which were already overcrowded.
One day as she was playing in the street, a large car swung around the corner
with an elderly looking gentleman sitting in the car. The boy's bright sunny face
appealed to him, he turned around and said to the boy,
'tHello, Sonny, where do you live?"
"Oh, I live up there," and he pointed to a dingy building. It's so dark and
Crowded that they make me szay out here. They say I am a nuisance and they wish
they were rid of me".
"Well, Sonny, how would you like to go home and live with me? You could
have everything you wanted, Sonny. I am an old man and I need your sunny smile
to brighten my few remaining years."
The boy was speechless. To have riches and a.ll the playthings he wanted, oh,
he was ready to go. He climbed into the auto and :he two started forth.
Several years have passed and Bobby has grown into a fine young man. He
has received the best education, has had only the best society and was dressed neat
but plain. Mr. Davis had become very attached to the boy, always telling him to
"aim high" and he would reach the goal. Bobby had just gone into his father's
study, as he calls him father now, with a puzzled expression on his face'
"Father, could I speak to you a minute, I have something I want to ask you?"
'tCertainly. my son, my time is yours and you are always free to ask me ques-
"Father, I want to go to work. I have been through college and am now

through high school and college?"
Mr. Davis answered him with a Curt, "From me, my son, from me".
That night as Bobby tossed on his pillow, he heard foo:steps on the walk. Who
could it be? He quietly slipped down stairs. A pebble was thrown up to his fath-
er's room, hitting the window. His father immediately came down stairs and open-
ed the window in the dining room. The man was around there, and his father was
saying, "Well Tom, is everything just aS we had planned for the Olson party? You
know those jewels are guarded because they are the most valuable stones in the

Bobby was dumbfounded. All this time he had been supported by, he knew not,
what person's money. Oh, it couldn't he that his father was a-a-. It was too
much, but he knew his father had always given large sums to ciharity. Oh, how
could he save his father, the only parent he had ever known. His face suddenly
brightened and a. determined liook came into his eyes.
That evening he was to be seen wendinig his way, hurrying along the main
thoroughfare. He soon reached a large gray s.0ne building. He knew he would
never be recognized as this was a masked affair. His plans had been carefully laid.
He would enter the back way in the servant's door, get the jewels before anyone
saw him. He saw his father standing against a door watching the crowd. His fath-
er, how little did he know that his son was there too. Quickly he reached the case.
He put the jewels into a small black bag he carried and started away. He reached
"Here, not so fast young man. You will excuse the authority but the Olson's
jewels have been stolen and we have to search everyone, regardless of anyone.
Bobby paled but was ordered to go into the ball room and tak-e off his mask.
He saw his father standing there and a look of surprise came over his father's face
as he saw his son.
"Search him." The jewels were found on him. Suddenly he sees his father
giving a sign for him to follow, making for the door. Shots were heard and Bobby
saw his father fall. His father was calling him.
"Son, you did this for me. Your old dad, ihe old man that took you in. Son,
you did it to save me. I never stole things to keep you in school. I worked and
kept you there with my own money. I have always taken money from the rich be-
cause I thought the poor needed it. Riches are deceiving, son. I am going now
son, go straight. Good-bye.
He fell back dead. Bobby fell on his knees, "Oh, falher, I'll go straight, I
swear, come back, it was those deceiving riches."
L. C. S. '28
We are not here to play, to dream, to driftg
We have hard work to do and loads to lift,
Shun not the struggleg face it. 'Tis God's gift.
Say not the days are evil. Who's to blame?
And fold the hands and acquiesce. Oh! Shame.
Stand up, speak out and bravely, in God's name.
It matters not how deep entrenched the wrong,
How hard the battle goes, the day how long,
Faint not, fight on. Tomorrow comes the song.

The Path of the Carefree Heart
I have the day before me,
I have bade all sorrow depart:
l'm full of joy, for I'm free to travel
The path of the carefree heart.
Perhaps the path leads over a hill,
And now down a steep ravine,
Perhaps I stop by a laughing brook
Where in sunshine the waters gleam.
I watch the tiny fairy folks
All through the mid-day hoursg
The droning bee and humming bird
That flit among the flowers.
When the sun sinks down in the west,
And crickets herald the coming of day,
And when all earth is suffused with a golden glow,
I follow my homeward way.
I follow the cowpath that's crooked
As Howers with dew are pearled
And I'm happy at heart, for I've spent the day
Close to God's beautiful world.
E. G., '29.
Brace up to life! It will lash you,
It will give U many a blowg
But brace up! Don't let it smash U-
It's all up to U-U know.
Be master yourself-nor allow it
The smallest advantage to gaing
Brace up to life and avow it
Shall never o'er U hold rein.
It will maul U, and pelt U, and beat U,
If U give a bit of a show,
It will harass and drive U and cheat you,
But it's all up to U-U know.
Its much in the way that U view it,
Though seemingly full of strife.
Its all up to U if U but knew it.

On Saturday evening, May 9, 1925, the members of the classes of

laughter at his many jokes.

The Lanes of Memory
The lanes of memory bloom all the fiowers of yesteryear
And looking back we smile to see life's bright roses reappear,
The little sprigs of mignonette that smiled upon us as we passed,
The pansy and the violet, too sweet, we thought those days, to last.
The gentle mother by the door caresses still her lilac blooms,
And as we wander back once more, we seem to smell the old perfumes,
We seem to live again the joys that once were ours so long ago
When we were little girls and boys, with all the charms we used to
But living things grow old and fade, the dead in memory remain,
In all their splendid youth arrayed, exempt from suffering and paing
The little babe God called away, so many, many years ago,
Is still a little babe today, and I am glad that this is so.
Time has not changed the joys we knewg the summer rains and winter
Have failed to harm the wond'rous hue of any dew-kissed by-gone roseg
In memory 'tis still as fair as when we plucked it for our own,
And we can see it blooming there, if anything, more lovely grown.
And down the lanes of memory bloom all the joys of yesteryear,
And God, has given you and me the power to make them reappear,
For we can settle back at night and live again the joys we knew
And taste once more the old delight of days when all our skies were

A Frightful Tale
The girl, alone as it seemed to her, in the big assembly, shuddered
as she thought of the horrible ordeal, through which she must pass.
She looked at the clock. Time was flying past on swift, sure wings.
She must prepare. With a sob she took up a small sharp-pointed in-
strument. How could she use it, when it meant her ruin! She laid it
down and then with a determined air, she took it up again. A noise
to the left distracted her thoughts for a moment. Looking, she saw a
most fraightful aspect coming down the hall She shrank back, back
to a very innermost corner. It was going to speak! Then with a start-
ling suddenness, she heard the teacher's voice bursting forth upon her
ear, "All those taking the geometry test pass into room three! !" The
time had come and the martyr went to the stake.
One Who Knows.
An oflicer on board a battleship was drilling his men.
"I want every man to lie on his back, put his legs in the air, and
move them as if he were riding a bicycle," he explained. "Now begin."
After a short effort one of the men stopped. "Why have you stop-
ped, Murphy?" asked the oiiicer.
"If you plaze, sor," was the reply, "Fm coasting."
Paul: "He was born in 1342 and traveled in England in 1302."
Mr. Wood: "Tell about the lyric poetry."
Paul: "Some of it is descriptive, but the best part of it is love."
Wilma: "Wish I didn't have anything more to do than play like
the Freshies. Maybe I'd get good grades, too."
Evelyn: "Yes, and if we played like the Seniors, we wouldn't
get very good grades."
Here we have our janitor,
He ranks above them all.
If he's not scrubbing down the stairs,
He's scrubbing in the hall.
He tends the fires both morn and noon,
He doesn't have much rest,
We always see him with his broom,
And know he's doing his best.
How we wonder where Goldie gets the strawberries that stain her
lips so red in January.

Mr. Wood said Shakespeare wrote about several of the Henry's.
We wonder if he meant Fords.
The thrill that comes once in a lifetime: "I forgot to tell you, but
wegl have a test in Geometry today." And only 5 more minutes to

the class that he made a wise guess at the last 11.

A Lesson in Arithmetic
He was teaching her arithmetic.
He said it was his mission.
He kissed her once, he kissed her twice
And said, "This is addition",
And on he added smack by smack,
In silent satisfaction.
She timidly gave him one back,
And said, "Now that's subtraction".
Then he kissed her and she kissed him,
Without an exclamation
And they both together said,
"That is multiplication".
But Dad appearaed upon the scene
And snorted in decision,
And kicked poor him three blocks
And said, "That's long division".
On looking over an old annual we ran across a Memoriam page.
Ferne: "Why don't we ever have one of those?"
Mr. Lowe: "Illinois ranks first in many things, don't they?"
Dayton: "Yes! They rank first in ice cream cones."
Mr. Lowe, in History class: "What is a combat?"
Pupil: "Two men fighting alone."
In Geometry class Mrs. Baker asked Lewis about a theorem.
"What does BC stand for Lewis?'l
Lewis: "British Columbia."

Bruce: "Mr, Wood especially should smile."
Mr. Wood fshiveringb : "Ohl Wood doesn't freeze."
I'll begin the list with Miss Quin.
Oh yes, she is rather thin,
But she'll grow every day
From March until May,
For its four years in school she has been.
Look at our basket star Dick,
Who grows very tall, yet not thick,
He'll sure keep in trim
When he uses his vim
To sack up some nice little t'chick".
Wilma is our country lass.
Oh yes! The dependable of the class.
I wish her good luck,
When each day she does pluck
Some knowledge from this world's grea
We have also among us, a blond,
And of history, truly she is very fond.
She studies so hard
And learns by the yard,
That Fern will be envied for long.
Our shortstop's name is Turl,
Whose hair stands up in a curl.
He sometimes is late,
But due always to fate.
He enters the hall in a whirl.
Mary came from far away
And has been faithful every day.
She likes to sew,
And so you know
The dough will always come her way.
Dayton Gerber drives a Dodge.
To him school is a hodge-podge.
He gazes around
Sometimes with a frown,
Yet we know he likes here to lodge.

The Wail of the Freshman
I have to stay in for English,
Have a date for Latin, too.
Got 65 in History.
O, what's a kid to do?
Algebra haunts me like a ghost.
Dream of "XYZ" all night.
I've lost four pounds, I work so.
Gee, but this life's a fright.
Mrs. Wood moved my seat up front.
CI wasn't bad at all.J
Miss Fisher reported me twice last week,
For talking in the hall.
Mr. Lowe, sent me to the office,
Just cause I giggled someg
Mr. Wood kept me after school-
QI was only chewing gum.J
That's the way that every day goes by,
Brim full of work and strife.
I'm scolded, laughed at, worked to death,
Such is a Freshman's life.

The Senior and School Alphabet
A-stands for Anderson, Berwyn by name,
Who in playing basketball is noted for fame.
B-is for Bruce, never out of sorts or blue,
Laughs all his troubles away and will yours too.
C-is for Connell, Ergene they all say,
He never lacks in making fun all the day.
D-stands for Dike, who will do what he can,
To make a success as a great ladies' man. '
E-is for Evelyn, a midget calm and serene,
Who is seldom heard and never seen.
F-is for Fern, so brilliant in class,
Who need never wcrry, we know she will pass.
G-is for Gerber, who joined us a Sophomore,
Is ever turning toward the front door,
H-is for Huflie, our cheer leader in white,
When behind h's b'g megaphone, is 'most out of sight.
I-is for somebody we haven't got,
Just imagine the somebody and I'll end with a dot.
J-is for John who never whispers,
But if you've ever observed, you'll find he's a listener.
K-stands for Kirkie, pleasant when life goes like a song,
But still smiles when everything goes dead wrong.
L-is for Loreane, always knows her lessons well,
But sure can giggle at anything you could tell.
M-is for Mary, from Mifllintown, I must say,
Is quite good in English, and all else that comes her way.
N-stands for Neiter, just another nickname,
But Anita sounds best when we speak of her aim.
O-is for orange, a color so brfght,
That Goldie' wears all day and night.
P-is for Paul, who gets letters they say,
From a lass in Fairview most every day.
Q-stands for quiet, a word not meant for Lewie,
All day long with his gum he goes chewie! chewie!
R-is for Richard, our big Senior man,
Who drops off to sleep whenever he can.

S-stands for We Seniors, who are leaving, ne'er to return,
But true to dear old T. H. S. our hearts' flames e'er will burn.
T-is for Theodosia, a lass so full of fun,
If you want a friend, here's where you'll surely find one.
U-stands for us, of dear old T. H. S.,
We'll always bear thy standards high, and shout thy praise.
V-is for Violet, as sharp as a lance,
Who goes all day and never misses a dance.
W-Qs for Wilma, giggling as she comes and goes,
But what it's all about, there is no one who knows.
X, Y and Z stand for those that still remain,
But you're not forgotten, although we haven't used your name.
Miss Fisher: 'tIs Lewis asleep?"
Gerald: t'Yes, all but his nose."
Mr. Lowe: "I want to get my girl something for Christmas, but
I don't want her to know anything about it."
Mr. Wood: "Get her a radio set: she won't know anything about
that for years."
Mr. Wood: Sir! You are twenty minutes late again. Don't you
know what time we start work at this school?"
Bruce: 'tNope, they're always at it when I get here."
"Gerald," said Miss Fisher, "What is your greatest ambition?l'
Gerald considered brieiiy. UI think," he finally replied, "it's to
wash mother's ears."
"Does your wife take in washings, Sam?"
"But I understand she did take in washings, Sam."
"No sah, youlre wrong. I takes in da washin', sah and I takes
da washin, out. All my wife does is to stay home and do it sah."
Chum: 'tYou refuse my proposal. Is this absolutely inal?"
Teddy: "Yes indeed. Shall I return your notes?"
Chum: "Please do there is some very good material in them I
can use again."
Miss Fisher: "Wilda, name a collective noun."
Wilda: "A vacuum cleaner."
