VIEW of the fact that this is the largest class that has either entered or gradu-
ated from the Troy High School, we venture to place before the public this
small reminder of our High School days. In the years to come it may be a volume
treasured by us all, carrying us back to those happy days in the springitime of life.
Within will be found the faces which used to grace the school corridors and the
many tricks and pranks played by us on our teachers and class-mates. We do not
presume that this book is a masterpiece of rhetoric or that the grammatical con-
structions found herein are infallible, we only say that it is the best our efforts
could produce. This is a departure from the usual line of annuals published at
the various colleges and preparatory schools, It is merely the annals of one class,
climbing the thorny, tortuous path which leads to the threshold of the "Temple
of Wisdom." We leave the dear old school with regret. How much we owe
to our teachersg especially to our Principal, Mr. Martin H. Walrath, for whom
we will always carry the greatest respect and esteem. The book has involved
personal sacrifices for us all, but We trust that they have not been in vain and that
we will be amply repaid by the knowledge that this, our first effort, has been

CLASS HISTORY, GHT-SIX
EBSTER says History is a true story,
in distinction from a romancef' So it
will be necessary in this account of the
deeds of the class of 1906, to omit all
the romances. Along in the latter part
of the year I90I news reached the Troy High School
that the first installment of the class of l906 would
land there some time after the mid-year exams. Ac-
cordingly on the mild winter morning, Monday, Feb-
ruary 3, l902, with the temperature 26 degrees above
zero, one could see boys in knee pants and girls in
short dresses and braids down their backs, wandering
from all parts of the city in the direction of the High
School building. When we assembled to hear the
same address of welcome which every entering class
has heard for at least ten years, We found that we
numbered over l75, and had the distinction of being
the largest freshman class in the history of the school,
a record that to this day has never been broken. The
upper classmen were decidedly averse to being troubled
with freshmen in the middle of the year and. they
wreaked their vengeance upon the easiest people they
could find, the freshest of freshmen.
They could not agree on a name for us. Some
called us "Sub-freshmen" and some "Kindergartners."
The HT. H. S." said our dress was as novel as our
youthful appearance, and credited us with all sorts of
childish pranks, such as bringing to 'class room a train
of cars, a bear that talked and a rag doll. Accord-
ing to reports We brought pages from illustrated story
books and hung them around the room, but we never
had the pleasure of viewing these works of art.
"Where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wisef'
As innocent children we lived in our apartments on
the iirst Hoor, utterly ignorant of the comment we were
causing. From the day Diggery was made one of
the detectives of Mr. Kennedy's vigilance committee
he became ambitious and decided to run for Presi-
dent of the class, when the time was ripe. Koerner,
who early showed signs of an experimental mind,
cansed consternation to reign among the girls and im-
mediately made good with the Physiology teachers
by bringing to class the skeleton of a rat mounted on
cardboard, each bone and tooth numbered. Prof.
Lundy one day asked Devine what teeth came after
the incisors. Devine quickly replied the biceps and
wondered Why the class laughed. lVlr. Lundy has
given forth a number of sensational statements during
our four and a half years. One of his early announce-
ments was "Man is the only animal that walks on his
hind legs." After about a month of such novel ex-
periences we enjoyed the pleasing sensation of our first
quarterly exams, but the sensations were varied a
week or two later when we carried home our report
cards. After the exams, the baseball and track sea-
sons came on and we were gratified to see that the
upperclassmen found a couple of Hkindergartnersn who
I O O O 0 O l O O O O C I l'C"l"O"l"l".'C O 0 0
could play baseball, Tim Roddy and I-larry Kava-
naugh, Those of us who were fortunate enough to
secure tickets attended the class day and commence-
ment exercises of l902 and had a vision of the warm
day when we ourselves would attract so much atten-
tion. After receiving reports of our first final exams
we left school in ,no such sorrowful spirits as the de-
parting seniors claimed to be.
We returned in September, l90Z to greet our 160
or so half-brothers and sisters, who, although they en-
tered half a year later than we did, were destined to
catch up with us by the third year. Some of us had
heard rumors that it was possible to graduate in three
years, so we tried to take all the subjects possible,
but the Hgentleman with the card and pencil" was on
the trail and advised us to stay four years. Martin
Murray, Warren Norris and Tim Roddy helped out
on the football field. Those of us who looked forward
to a college course were informed that Latin was re-
quired. Some of us were wise, some of us were
foolish, some took Latin, some took something easier.
Those who took Latin were told by Mr. Gardner that
it was just as impossible to learn Latin by looking on
and watching someone else work, as it was to learn
to skate by sitting on the benches. Miss Riggs' Ro-
man history class attracted some attention. It was a
cosmopolitan collection, having members from each of
the four classes, and we Freshmen were of as much
account as the Seniors. One day Miss Riggs asked
the question, "To what caste do the teachers of India
belong?" Phillips, who was the most original his-
torian of the bunch, yelled out, "To the out-castsf,
Inside of l0'- seconds Philips belonged to the out
casts. Through connection with one of Miss Riggs,
debates, three of our members were honored by election
to membership in the Websterian Literary and De-
bating Society in freshman year. The spring of l903,
our freshman year, was a banner year in Athletics, and
l906 was well represented by Tim Roddy, Warren
Norris and Warren Stowe on the baseball team, and by
Arthur Wheeler, Martin Murray and Warren Norris
on the track team. Freshmen are expected to appear
modest. We knew our place, so the deeds of our first
year do not take up much space.
HAT the class of l906 was destined to be
the most progressive, aggressive and digres-
sive class in the history of the school, began
to show itself as soon as we graduated
from the first Hoor. After watching with
much pleasure for about a month the antics of the
freshmen, our attention was directed toward educational
pursuits. One of the Hrst announcements that seemed
to strike harmoniously upon our ears, was thatthere
was to be a singing class and that candidates would
have to sing for positions. This was a great deal like
ua baseball try out," and most of the fellows tried
for first base. ln due course of time we assembled
for rehearsals. At first we sang at the close of school,
then before school and in fact, the class was such a
howling success that before long it sang itself to sleep
and no one has ever had the nerve to arouse it.
During the latter part of our freshman year Mr.
Gardner had called our attention to the Latin phrase,
.s..n..a-.g..g.....g g g
'gCaesar, we about to die, salute theef, We did not
realize what this meant until we returned in our sopho-
more year to hear that he was to teach a Caesar
class. Alas, for our poor fellows who were stuck at
the auction sales. Their horses could not stand the
pace and they fell by the wayside. But most of those
who kept their saddles for the first quarter, finished the
year with well trained ponies. One day, Mr. Edwards
tried to make Bailey dismount, but after a long lecture
Bailey said it was too hard a road to walk and re-
tained his honorable office of pioneer cavalryman.
To our great joy it was decided to continue Physical
Geography, but we were the last class to experience its
pleasures. The Physical Geography class is a mighty
interesting place, for there everyone has a chance to
show his originality and whenever there is any doubt
about the physical possibilities of the earth one can
propouncl such questions, as "What time does the moon
go in on the morning when it is full?', or "How do we
know that the North Star is where it is?" Some of
the fellows found that they had been mistaking an
electric light in Cohoes for the North Star. Seven of
our fellows made good on the football team. They
were Clifton, Koerner, Devine, Byrne, Fobes, Burke
and l-libbard. This was the first year we were repre-
sented on the Editorial Board of the HT. H. Sf'
Blanche Quinn being accorded the honor of writing
From our earliest youth there had been a great
desire to do something. The smoldering embers of
the burning passion finally burst forth into flames on
the afternoon of October 6th of our Sophomore year.
We decided to adopt an official class cap with numer-
als. The Seniors fthe class of '04J were noted for
their lack of initiative and naturally when they learned
that the sophomores were going to do something
which '04 had never thought of, they became choked
We decided upon the style, collected the money for
the hats andwere just about to order them when Mr.
Walrath suggested that we make the proposal to all
the classes. We were soon to learn the truth of the
old saying, "He who hesitates is lost." If we had
left the other classes to shift for themselves we would
have had our hats. 'But we sent delegates to a com-
mittee of Seniors and Juniors and, of course, they
couldn't see things our way. They wanted to follow
the example of upperclassmen of the Rensselaer Poly-
technic Institute and Union University and suggested
that we, SOPHOMORES, wear colored buttons on
our caps. We refused and only in deference to Mr.
Walrathis requests to avoid class friction, did we give
up the idea of numeral caps. The feeling aroused by
this disappointment caused the organization of a num-
ber of societies in our class.
1904 was a leap year and as the girls' societies all
took advantage of it, the boys enjoyed many dances
for the small sum of the car fare. One of the events
that broke in upon the monotony of the winter months
was the U. C. S. sleigh-train-and-trolley ride. About
fifty fellows decided to break up the proposed ride,
with the result that the girls who went had many
thrilling experiences to relate the next morning. De
Groot still has the glove he grabbed, and his hat
was restored to him unhurt. Ryan is still thinking
about the umbrella handle he broke over someone's
head. Such experiences Were not numerous, however,
and a great many good times were enjoyed, the O.
spreads and the T. A. S. parties being worthy of
One of the great successes which originated among
members of our class was the "Deutscher Vereinf,
The constitution of the club allowed the business ses-
sions to be carried on in the English tongue. It is
needless to say that Ryan, De Groot, Bonesteel and
Thomas saw to it that the business session was long
drawn out. So much so that they had to work hard
to defeat a motion by one of the girls to have the time
allotted to business, limited. One of the chief pleasures
of the fellows was to entangle the girls with parlia-
mentary rules of order and keep them jumping up and
down entirely ignorant of what they were voting for.
Alexander, a member of our class was the first presi-
dent of the organization. Monotony was unknown to
us as sophomores, for some one of our number was
always doing something out of the ordinary. The
question was asked in Zoology, "To what class does
the lobster belond?" One bright individual answered,
'GTO the Senior slass,', and we all agreed. Ryan was
always' trying some original wit, as is shown by this
instance: Mr. Lundy, in Algebra after the first bell
has rung-"Now we will proceed to take up rootsf,
Ryan-"And then we'll begin to leave." And Ryan
With the opening of track and baseball seasons
our fellows were ready to help on the teams and a re-
view of the seasons showed that we had produced
more athletes than any other class. A proof of the
statement that we were in control of affairs is shown
by the fact that at the annual election of they Athletic
Association we managed to place fellows of l906 in
twelve out of thirteen possible offices, and the captains
of track, baseball, basketball and football for the fol-
lowing seasons were members of l906.
ACH succeeding year of our career has been
filled with a greater number of important
events than the one before, and Junior year
saw the accomplishment of many great
deeds. By this time our younger brothers
and sisters had caught up with us and, united, we were
ready to battle on with our shoulders to the wheel. Our
athletic ability was again brought to light by the fact
that nine out of the eleven men on the football team
were our classmates. Nearly the entire membership
of the Websterian Society was made up of ',Naughty
Six." One of the early events in the Webstenan
circles was the passing of resolutions which brought
recognition by news articles in the columns of the
"T, I-l. S." The Pierian and Philomathian Literary
and Debating Societies were organized, and again our
ability was brought to the front, as members of '06
were among the founders and first officers.
We were called together Friday afternoon, Decem-
ber l6th, l904, to take action upon the death of one
of our number, our esteemed classmate, Lena Belle
Jones. She was popular among her classmates and
especially among the members of the girls' basketball
team, of which she was a member. Resolutions were
drawn up and sent to the family and to the HT. H. Sf,
for publication, while a large delegation attended the
funeral and Horal pieces were sent by the class.
On Friday, February 3rd, l905, we attended our
last recitations with Miss Fuhlhage, in German. The
members of her second year class showed their appre-
ciation of the good times enjoyed with her in and out
of class, by a suitable remembrance.

On the afternoon of the same clay, we met for class
organization, and we still have the distinction of being
the largest class, in numbers, that ever xreached the
Junior year. After about two hours' work We found
that we had elected the following officers: President
and Chairman of executive committee, Charles W. Dig-
geryg Vice-President, Lillian K. Youngg Secretary,
F. Blanche Quinng Treasurer, Chester S. Leeg Mem-
bers of Executive Committee, M. Kathryn Kelly,
Minnie G. Birkinshaw, C. Elmer Clifton and Warren
The successes of the boys on the various athletic
teams aroused an' athletic spirit among the girls and
they began practicing the strenuous game of basket-
ball at the Young Women's Association. One day it
was announced that there was to be a championship
game between the girls of 1905 and l906. Naturally
all the boys wanted to know where they could buy
tickets, but for once Woman was not attracted by the
prospects of financial profit and all the boys were
turned down. Only the coach and a few necessary
officials were allowed admission, but "Buster" Brown
and others saw the game from a telegraph pole in the
alley, and from all accounts it was for the good of all
concerned that some boys were allowed inside, for
the fistic encounters and hair-pulling contests might
otherwise have ended seriously. The Juniors were
satisfied with throwing two baskets, while the Seniors
threw them almost at will. But the girls of the Water-
vliet high school were anxious to swell their gate re-
ceipts, and when it was announced that a picked team
of our girls would play in Watervliet, a crowd of fel-
lows that would do great credit to a boys' game, found
its way to Watervliet and saw the ladies from across
the river trim our girls to the- tune of 20-6. We have
never heard of any more basketball among the girls
since that game.
Another event successfully managed, by members
of i906 was the concert given by the Empire Male
quartette, assisted by Miss Ross and our own Aor-
chestra, in Harmony Hall, Monday evening, April
l7th, l905. The following night occurred the first
debate between the WebsterianAand'Pierian Societies.
Five of the eight debaters of the evening were mem-
bers of l906. On Thursday afternoon, May 4th,
we simply walked away with first honors in the inter-
class meet with 60 points against I8 for l905, onr
. One day when We were assembled to have a heart
to heart talk with Mr. Walrath, he upset us all when
he said, "For every absence that is not made up you
will' receive a square zero," and then assumed that
blank expression, when we all laughed. Mr. Morse
relieved the strain of the work in physics once in a
while by telling us that we could "pound a piece of
malleable iron into pieces but not break it,', or by ask-
ing us "how much water a quart bottle would holdf'
Coplon and De Groot were generally on hand when
we needed something to bring on a laugh.
One day DeCwroot said, "Cop, I saw your little
brother here this morning.,'. .Said Coplon, "What,
that little dog that was running around?"
The preparation for the Arbor Day celebration
of 1905 were extensive and much explanation was
needed before we knew just what was wanted. ln
the course of his remarks on the matter, one day Mr.
Walrath said, "The boys will occupy the rear portions
of the rear seats." l-le later explained that this did
not mean that we were to sit on the backs of the seats,
but simply "to go way ,back and sit downf,

We shall probably never forget ,the good times with
the sand wagon after our unsuccessful attempts to
carry out our instructions.
The most exciting event of our Junior year,
however, was the capture of l905's flag in broad
daylight, on Class Day. It had been the custom
for the Seniors to hoist their class Hag on the school
pole on the evening before Class Day, when it
was then up to the Juniors to get it down. Our fel-
lows were on hand in large numbers- by 7 o'clock.
We waited around until dark, but no flag appeared.
Then we made ourselves scarce until about eleven
when we assembled at Ned Fursman's barn, where
began the long and quiet march from Adams street
to the school building. When we reached the build-
ing, some got to the roof by means of the pole outside
the enclosed fire escape, others went up the inside,
and still others climbed up the iron fence and then
danced along the stone trimmings of the first story of
the building and in through a window in the front.
As soon as the latter bunch reachedgthe inside of the
hall, every fellow took off his shoes so that the ascent
by way of the main stairway would not attract the at-
tention of the night watchman.
just about l :00 A. M., when the crowd reached
the top of the building, Coplon and Milliman got into
an argument with a couple of policemen in front of the
school. It seems that they did not get to the front of
the building with the rest of the crowd, and were just
doing the dance act afong the stone work when the two
policemen appeared. They probably thought they had
caught a couple of young freshmen in the
act of making off with Mr. Gardnefs green
Latin bag. Their shouts so startled the fel-
lows that they lost their balance and fell into
..g-.g..g..g..g..g..g..g..g-.g ..g..g.rg..g-.g..g..g.g 9 9 . .
they arms of the cops. They told the officers that they
had a friend in the building, but the' night watchman
refused to identify them. They then tried to give an
explanantion, but the officers told them to save it for
a few minutes, so Coploni and Milliman had to ac-
company them to the station house. By the time they
reached that place Coplon had prepared quite a yam,
and after hearing that it was a night when the students
were granted certain priviliges, the police sergeant let
them go on the promise that they would get all their
friendsvto leave the building.
a By this time the fellows on the roof began to whistle
for something to eat. Bailey, who was on the ground,
had a feeling for them and generously paid for an as-
sortment of Essex Lunch sandwiches, but just as he
was ready to send them up by means of a rope, the
cops appeared again and the hungry were not fed.
About half past two the fellows who were in the
street left to get a little sleep on wagon seats in a barn
not far away. They returned about daylight, and
their conversation in the early hours brought forth a
shower of 'water from one individual in the neighbor-
hood, whose slumbers had been disturbed. Since
l905 had not hoisted its Hag, it was decided that ours
should be thrown to the breeze at 5:00 A. M..
About 8 olclock Mr. Walrath appeared on the scene
and We had to vacate the premises. When we were
all out of the building, the Seniors Who had been locked
up with their Hag in the laboratory lecture room, crawled
out, unceremoniously yanked down our battle flag and
in its place' unfurled a large and costly i905 banner.
A crowd of our fellows witnessed this part of the per-
formance from Fifth Avenue, and when they could
stand it no longer, made a rush upstairs. The first
object to oppose us was a barricaded door at the top
I CO .
of the stairway. We rushed against it, and, strange
to say, the door was later picked up farther in the
attic. But we got no farther, for the Principal was
General of 1905, and ordered us back. A few of our
fellows remained in the vicinity of the school all the
morning, and about quarter past eleven Jimmie Byrne
and jack Devine did their noble work. Devine
waited on the roof of the fire escape. Byrne
went along the cornice to the main roof, untied the
Hag, and, amidst the cries of Mr. Walrath and the
Senior girls, ran back along the narrow cornice, threw
the flag to Devine, who threw it to the ground, where
three others were ready to carry it to safe quarters.
No other class can boast of taking a Hag from the
school roof under such circumstances.
In order to let l905 break the record in point of
number graduated we sent ahead Julia Moss, Lillian
Matlaw, Anna Markham, Anna Ratigan, Eva Lavine
and John Barsamian to help swell their ranks.
But the crowning event of our Junior year was the
greatest social event in the history of the school--the
magnificent reception and hop tendered the graduating
class of 1905 by the class of 1906 in the State Ar-
mory, Thursday evening, June 22nd, l905.

found that our number had decreased
. to about one hundred twenty-five, but
this was almost twice as large as the
membership of the class of l905 in the
first part of their Senior year, and that class was the
largest on record. We found that we had received
several new members, Edith Stedman and Matthew
Pack from Stillwater High Schoolg Sally Dexter and
Florence Bowman from Lansingburgh High School,
and Theo. Baird from as far west as Kansas. We
learned that Hlckn Thiessen, '6Chet', Lee, Frank
Bachman and "lack" Burke had entered the fresh-
man class at the ,Tute, and Warren Stowe had gone
on the road as a traveling man.
The Senior class room was too small to accommo-
date all of us, so Miss Groutis room was used as "The
Annex." A few of us were given the privilege of scan-
ning Virgil under the watchful eye and ear of Mr.
Walrath. Most of us decided that we had gone far
enough on foot, so a driving club composed of old War
horses was formed. A large number started chemistry
with Mr. Lundy and enjoyed his original remarks
of which this is a sample: "The iron industry has grown
so large that we can safely say that this is the age of
'steal' H In those days, when we were the subject
of so much ridicule, we were told that some day we
would have charge of the HT. H. S.,,' our school
paper. One thing which we have done and of which
no other class can boast, is ,to have a new cover de-
sign each month. Those elected on the Editorial
Board were: James F. Carroll, Editor-in-chief, May

At the first class meeting of our Senior year the fol-
lowing permanent officers were elected: President
and Chairman of Executice Committee, Charles W.
Diggeryg Vice-president, Lillian K. Young: Secre-
tary, F. Blanche Quinny Treasurer, Russell D. Mere-
dith: Executive Committee, Minnie G. Birkinshaw,
M. Kathryn Kelly, Wa1'ren A. Norris and C. Elmer
Clifton. At this meeting the boys voted to have class
hats. The class adopted as the colors royal purple
and white, but after much electioneering the girls, at a
subsequent meeting, succeeded in rescinding the action
and adopted gold and white as the colors. Unly half
a dozen fellows have had the nerve to go out alone
wearing the class hats. They were white felt with an
orange colored band that attracted more attention
than some of the queer shapes of ladies hats we have
seen this spring.
We decided to publish this Class Book, and elected
Ujefff' Thomas Editor-in-chief and Herbert M. Uline
Business Manager. This is also something which
none of our predecessors has done.
After much Hfussingf, we secured a majority vote
on one of the designs for our class pin, gold, circular
in shape, with real make-believe pearls. Some
one has always been ready to doctor up the notices
that are placed upon the black boards. One day
Diggery posted the following: "The pins have arrived.
All money must be in, as package came C. O. D.

"The tins have arrived. All money must be in, as
Packard came C. O. D. Pay me. I need the

HI-lookey, To-day, Fourth Period!" On the 20th
of November about a dozen fellows met in the As-
sembly hall and organized a Glee Club. The officers
and a majority of the members were Seniors, and we
believe they have been working all year on a
Hlullabyu-for we have not had the pleasure
of hearing them. On Tuesday, November Zlst,
l905, we were greatly shocked to hear that Mr.
Walrath had been suspended early that morning,
and we decided to see if we could do any-
thing to show our regard for him. During
the three days, when we refused to attend school,
we succeeded in arousing the business men to
action, and our efforts were not in vain, for
after a long struggle Mr. Walrath returned
to take up his work is principal of the school
Tuesday morning, April 10th, l906. The fellows
who attended the trial became quite proficient in cross-
examination, and two mock trials were held by the
members of the Websterian Society. For particulars
ask Diggery and Bailey, the prisoners.
We held our Christmas hop at Harmony I-lall
Thursday evening, December 28th, and it was, as all
our efforts, a very pleasing and brilliant affair.
We elected the following Class Day officers on
Wednesday afternoon, January 31st, l906: Poetess,
Mary D. Cleary: Prophetess, Mary E.. Sibbaldg
Prophet, Mitchell B. De Groot: Critic, John F.
Thomas: Historian, Russell D. Meredith: Class Song:
words, Margaret H. Colvin: music, John P. Ryan:

With a view to increasing interest in the spring
athletics some of our fellows made arrangements for
a banquet to be given for all High School students
past and present, Thursday evening, March Sth, at
the Y. Nl. C. A. But the fellows thought that more
alumni would be home from college if it were post-
poned until the Easter vacation. They were later
advised that the newly formed Alumni Association was
to hold a banquet and it would not be wise to have
two, so they gave the preference to the banquet of the
Alumni Association, which will take place Wednes-
day evening, June 20th. Perhaps the banquet early
in the spring would have meant a more successful base-
ball season, but then, who knows?
For the first time on record a Troy High School
Dramatic Club made its appearance on the public stage
Friday evening, May 4th, in a three-act comedy "All
About Tompkinsf' Our class was well represented
on the cast and the members brought forth many ex-
pressions of praise for themselves and the school.
The first day that Mr. Ames took up his duties in
the History Department he said: "This is what you
might call a palisade lesson." The explanation was
that it was a Hbluffln Quite an auspicious beginning!
De Groot has earned the reputation of being the

As we look back over the years of our existence as
students of Troy High School, we realize that for over
four years we have been making history of a remark-
able nature. We have accomplished not only what
others have accomplished, but we have tackled propo-
sitions unknown to preceding classes and our efforts
have always been crowned with success. We have
been foremost in athletic, literary, debating, dramatic,
musical and social circles, while here, and now we go
out into the world, determined to achieve greater suc-
cesses in greater fields.
So here's to the greatest class, of the greatest school

"Is she not passing fair?"
Charles Watkins Diggery, would-be lady kill ar of the Troy I-Iigh School, falls in love with more
girls than any other fellow in the class, Fursman included fand that is talking a good deal, tool. All
classes-freshman to senior-fall helpless before the all-conquering gaze of this boy wonder. Little Carrie
of the Hsophsi' is engrossing all his spare time just at present, but before that he was dead stuck on fair
Minnie of our own illustrious class. I think that she ably reciprocated his love. Now, poor "Dig" is
getting sarcastic against the "D, Q." crowd because he was not invited to their dance, Wonderful'to
relate, this youngster cannot dance, although he takes in all the dances on the calendar. He claims that
it is better to sit in a cozy corner and spoon. But it has been darkly hinted that "Dig', does notstop
with the school girls, but his all-devouring claws have stretched out and grasped the Assistant Librarian
Miss Jackson. Fie on you, little manl She is old enough to be your mother. This state of affairs made
"Doc" Wheeler take a back seat for a while.
The class election which placed "Dig', at the helm of affairs showed his popularity with the maids.
The girls worked and votedf?D for him notwithstanding his red hair. That hair-ohlll It is
the source of much displeasure to Charles, especially since the chemistry class took it as the 'istandard
redf, Soon after a dispute arose as to the exact col nr of the top of his head and to settle all dispute Mr.
Lundy had a vote on the color. Seventeen voted ucopper-colored" and six 'iredf' Thus we must abide
by the decision and call it "copper-colored." Besides the honors held by "Chuck" in the above he is
an'ardent member of the HS. O. R." This club has on its roll the names of both boys and girls. The poor
girls make more trouble, unintentionally, of course.
Once upon a time they for Blanche ratherj led "Dig" and Willie Ross to a fist fight over poor
"Quinnie." Miserable Diggery. l-le was soundly beaten by the school champion boxer, and Willie
reigned supreme. Another club e'en more famous than the HS. O. R." to which Charles belongs, is the
"Trio"-if you want more information on this terrible gang ask Mr. Gardner. Suffice it to say that
not one of them ever learned his or her Latin lesson. Every morning, with Dig at the front, they march
triumphantly down to Latin and every morning they sulk back with Minnie in the lead. From thence
they journey to Miss C1rout's room, there to giggle and act like two-year-olds, telling they all flunked
again. So, you see, Diggery gets along by flirting and flunking. How he was elected President of the
class is explained in the following quotation:
"Some are born great-others achieve greatness,
But Diggery had greatness C?J thrust upon him."

ANNA IVlcCHESNEY, 2-146 Fifth Ave.
T. A. S. Societyg Member Girls' Basketball Teamg General Course.
Anna is one of the ingenious girls whose entrance to the l-ligh School is marked by its extreme
silence. We did not hear much from her until her Sophomore year. She was always a great factor in the
Theta Alpha Sigma Society and her greatest ambition was to help entertain its boys of the F. G. F.
Society of l905. .She began Latin with the rest of us and managed to bear Mr. Gardner's questions on
modes and cases for three years when she decided that Virgil was a study fit only for grinds and we have
missed her smile in the Latin class for a year. She decided that one must enjoy pleasure and decided to
take hers in her senior year. We have been unable to find out her ambition for the future, but believe
she intends to settle down after graduating to learn housekeeping and domesticology.
IVEAURICE DUFFY, 2 Van Every Ave.
Duff has a constitutional inaptitude for work in all forms. l-le used to study till he heard somebody
refer to it as work. Once he was in a close baseball game and the captain said "Now, fellows, welll
have to work hard to win.', Duff immediately remembered a previous engagement and betook himself
off. Somehow or another that word has awful terrors for him. l-le Hunked a Latin examination once
because he couldn't remember what "opus" meant. Duff can torture a violin in great style. l-le can make
the poor thing wail rythmically, a very remarkable feat. l-le can imitate various sounds, too, without
half trying, such as sawing wood and pulling teeth. Skill, there's one good thing about him, he never says
he only plays classical pieces and doesn't know anything about popular music.

When Miss Benson was a freshman people marveled that such a child could possibly have entered
High School. But as time went on and her size did not increase one became convinced that "Good
things must be done up in small parcels." ln school sheis quiet and timid as a mouse and like that little
creature is easily frightened. This is most conspicuous in English Class. Then it is indeed hard for Miss
Benson to utter the thoughts that arise within her. Apparently has always the many charms of which poets

She has two eyes so soft and brown,
She gives a side glance and looks down.
Take care! Take care!
She is fooling, fooling, fooling thee.
lfhe names of her admirers would Hll a good sized volume. To add to this she is a sad coquette.
It grieves us to say so, but the truth is the truth. So cheer up, Gus, you are not the only pebble on the
beach. ln strict confidence, Mandy informed lVliss Treanor that she was not fooling with lVlr. Gillespie.
We are glad to hear that she is at last serious.
lVlany are lVlattie's accomplisments. She is a star basketball player and bowler, especially the
former. Whenev'er she saw the ball coming her way, she would put up her hands before her face and run
the other way. This, she informed us, was to protect her pompadour. Where there is a piano Mattie
is always in demand, as she is an accomplished musician. She has sung in the choir since she was two
years olcl. Speaking of singing, l must not forget to mention that the residents of Brunswick avenue have
complained to the police several times of late on account of the terrible noises which are heard in and about
the Lee residence. Up to the present date there has been no means of determining the direct cause of all
this trouble, but we suspect that the cause is only Gus airing his favorite tune, "Mandy Lee." One thing
we never could understand is why does Mattie hate to hear sung that gentle ditty, "When Johnny 'Comes
Marching Home," when the Junior class president is around? Can anyone enlighten us? Another of
her favorite songs isulim Trying So l-larcl to Forget You." If you wish to know why she sings that, why
just go and ask our historian. l dare tell no more.

ANNA CELESTlNE KIRWIN, 2313 Seventh Ave.
"Bright as the sun her eyes the gazers strike,
And like the sun they shine on all alike."
Anna has the distinction of being the only "Ochre-brunette" in the class. CWe call it thus as she
says it is "Alice Bluef' and it is generally recognized as the former by all her friendsl. ln 'fact she has
a swelled head over its beauty and really persuaded the audacious "Pete" that it was exactly like an
actress'. So, in order to prove what kind of an actress she really was, "Pete" grasped her strongly about
the supple waist and sat her on the top of'lVlr. Ames' ward-robe while she shrieked to the tune of the Star
Spangled Banner, and Pete danced to that interesting accompaniment, striving his best to see what power
she had as an actress. ln the meanwhile, Mr. Walrath was an interested spectator of this "shindig."
When the two culprits saw the terrible "giver of cleportmentsn gazing at them with lire in his eyes, the
dancer lied and poor Ann collapsed in the Principal's outstretched arms. This is why you people have
never heard much about this tale, and we take pleasure in relating it here where Ann and Pete can always
behold their little escapade as other saw it.

It must be awful to be in love. We have watched "Doon failing steadily lately, and have become
alarmed for his health. And Worse yet, he has taken toiwriting poetry and has turned out odes with such
titles as "To Her," To Heleni' and To Melancholyf' When we examined these gems of literature, We
were surprised that the same human being could descend to such imbecility, for to read them 'was like wading
through slush that spattered all over you at every step. Doc, before he fell into the snares of Cupid, was a
pretty nice fellow. But now! Words adequate to describe him fail us. l-le has lost his patented walk
and forgets to swing his arms and sway his shoulders. Indeed, if he doesn't take a change for the better,
we may miss his rosy phiz from our midst. l.,et's hope he doesn't change for the better.

JOHN FREDERICK BEIERNIEISTER, Brunswick Avenue.
Glee Club. Hockey Team. Scientific Course. Preparing for Cornell.
John, probably better known as "Skinny" or 'zlohnnief' possesses a few odd features which deserve
to be recorded. Johnnie is very diminutively built, weighing only about 550 lbs. and standing about 5 ft.
I0 in his stockings. Every time the wind blows Skinny has to grab ahold of the tree or be blown away,
poor boy. Once when the wind was blowing quite hard, it blew him down and he landed so hard that
people thought that a second San Francisco earthquake was in progress. John lives on the East Side and
the poor boy has to walk back and forth from school as the U. T. Co. absolutely refuse to injure their roll-
ing stock by carrying such a weight and as they have no cattle cars. Notwithstanding his great weight,
john is very fond of the young ladies and especially of a Miss Finder. You should see them skating on
Beldens. It reminds one of a horse fly and a mosquito. Miss Finder must be endowed with great
courage, as ordinary ice is not supposed to hold more than two hundred pounds fin one placej. We
wish this couple much happiness, but people with white elephants are often unlucky.

As an introduction to Nlargarite let us state that the great Raymond T. Birge is her brother. What!
All you want to hear about her. Nonsense he never fell in love. She has lots of times. With whom?
Oh, l'll never tell. Just ask Queenie about Burns, the sieve and the wedding cake. I-le feels real proud
about it. VanTyle has come in for his share and seems to be finishing strong just at present, but he may
fall in the stretch and get a spavined fetlock. fForgive me these horse terms, Margarite. We know
anything about trotting 'pains thy sensitive nerves and so we will not elucidate our knowledge by means
of themj. Letis hope he does, as Van is too bad for the little maid. She takes great interest in the
class, and hers was the first picture handed the Editor-in-Chief, ditto, the first dollar handed the treasurer.
Now, you girls, don't criticise "Queenie," for she said i'l7udge" three times, 'iSplutter, splash," twice,
and E. Pluribus Unum, Rotten Tomatoes, amenn once So, you see, she is blacker than she looks and not

has been a puzzle to many a High School youth. There is one, especially, who in French class, to Miss

to Minniels wavy brown tresses.
Birky has had so many affairs that to do her justice it would be necessary to Write volumes and

This is Bailey's doctrine, and he preaches it aloud no matter however, where or whenever he is. Bailey
is in the strictest sense of the word an exaggerated full moon, round and jovial with a grin from side to
side. But the moon steals over the hills and disturbs not the quiet of the nightg Bailey tumbles, roars, rips
and snorts as he moves from place to place and arouses man and beast. l-le is at times top-heavy, some go
as far as to say all times, but we will compromise. People along Broadway wonder and stare as he comes

was put out of the number "l0', Club and that the Y. M. C. A. offered to pay for his meals at the Rensse-
laer if he would take them there rather that at their restaurant. His fame as a blunder-bust and a welp-
howling monster has spread. Some time ago he went up to Stillwater. On the way up the passengers
on the car became much distressed and at last one old "CrustH said, "I wish that farmer boy had not
come into town on this car to-night." So much for B. B. as a mongrel among mongrels. Now for him

she went away. Then came Nathalieg she is still his, and it looks for keeps. These have been his main
attractions-how about his secondary ones? Mattie, Birky, Quinny and a score of others have been under
the wings of this modern Bluebeard.
Bailey, in accordance with his nature, was good to them all. Mattie at one time received consider-
able attention. Proctofs, and better ones at 32.00 or more, Huylers and moon-light escapades were be-

"Who chooseth me shall get as much as he deserves."
Anal all that's coming to him might well be added. Mary is a clipper and no mistake. Not afraid
of anything from a mouse to a sea serpent. fwe aren't just sure of this last remark. It is inserted for
effectj One fine day the seniors woke up to find that this child had joined their honored ranks, and
evidently she had come to stay. They say she studied during the summer, but how she could accom-
plish much with C. S-g-r in this vicinity is more than we can fathom. However, she did and any day
x now in botany you can hear Mary sweetly chanting "Yes, Miss Bradley." Everybody says Mary is the
limit, and l guess that's about right, she certainly approaches one, at any rate. Ask "Andy', if she
doesn't. By the way, this friend of ours has the distinction of being one of the greatest little flirts in T.
H. S. "Nedy' knows all about that, for wasn't he once the victim of her coquetry? Perhaps it would
not be out of place to put a question here. We don't care to be inquisitive, but if she wouldn't mind
telling us, we'd rather like to hear about her trip to New York last summer. It promises to be very
interesting. On the whole, Mary is an interesting personage, and judging from her performances in Eng-
lish, she will doubtless go on the vaudeville stage as high class mimic and imitator.

"Still waters run deep."
The girls of '06 consider that this tall, ministerial young man is one of the most timid fellows fthat is
where girls are concerned? in our class. Moreover, the boys have embraced this opinion since once he was
heard to remark that he would rather die than take a girl to a dance. But the truth will out sooner or
later. The truth in this case is that Robert Shirley is a regular Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. fThat is, he
leads a double lifej. Vague rumors float in from Center Brunswick and they tend to prove that diffidence
for the girls falls off Shirley like water from a duck's back as soon as he crosses the city's line. The sin-
gular cordiality with which he greeted a certain young lady of the class of ,05 after both had returned
from their summer's vacation dispels any lingering doubts concerning "this farmer's" character. Although
many love affairs have come to our ears, we believe that a Hderrickv has at last lifted him out of the
dreaded "mire of celibacyfi Shirley is one of the principal Hobstructionistsu in the class of 'ipolitical
Economy," and the "United Order of Trust Busters" taught the fifth period by Prof. Lundy, and he has
been so kind as to let one of that worthy's statements, so far, pass unchallenged, namely: "The brains
and brawn of the city come from the country."

It was a most modest, quiet, unassuming Margaret that first came to High School. Her first two
years in the place were peaceful and uneventful. But during her junior year she thought she needed a
vacation. So, accordingly, she left school for several months. The 'crest curei' wrought a great change
in Margaret. Now wherever "Peg,' is, there is no rest for the weary or Wicked. She has so much
ginger in her that she has even carved the name of her favorite beverage, "Ale,', on her desk. What
brand she likes is a rather delicate question. Picnics, too, have become her chief delight, especially in

defeat does not deter him. He is singularly beautiful, which makes him interesting from a feminine point of
view. Starting in his sophomore year he became press agent for a young lady on Brunswick Avenue.

various girls. He is a reformer or a poet fwe haven't found out whichj, and when angry his oratory

that she is inclined to be too conscientious. She is a good student, but by no means a "grindf, andalways
ready to lend a hand to a comrade in dire straits. Until her senior year one imagined Frances to be some-
thing of a "Coodie, goodie girlf, Daily association, however, with the second period French class dispelled

"Airy, fairy Lillian."
This is our little Whirlwind from Pawling Avenue. She does look quiet, but Wait till you meet
her. The halls in school seem deserted without Dicky Birdls chirping. Every day she has a new tale
of woe. Her favorite theme is "tis better to have loved and lost than never to' have loved at all.'y We
think she must have had some experience in this line. When Dick was a freshman she was interested
in the undertaking business, and thereby hangs a tale. Every time he had a case on, Dick would come to
school with a long Wide black ribbon around her neck and when asked why, would answer, "l'll wear
the willow garland for his sake." Dick seems always in the clouds. Often when in the "Y" drinking
coffee, she astonishes her neighbors, as she drinks, by murmuring dreamily "Welch's Grape Juice." We
wonder why English History is Dicks favorite study and her favorite kings are George I., Charles I. and
Charles ll. Youths of High School, beware! Keep out of the course of this whirlwind. Her coy
glances and smiles are easily won, but as easily lost. If you do not believe me ask our model minister's son,

of our sedate youngsters.. What a school weid have if all the boys were like Frank. Something like
a primary department under a birch rod school-master or a bunch of "Willies,' like Mr. Lansing tried to
make out of us. Did you ask if he talked to a girl? Holy smokes! If he ever spoke to a corset-lacer,
the school would have a fit. He is pointed out as a "Little Lord Fauntleroyn by the women teachers of
the school. But We suppose that there must be some quiet ones on this earth, and as the lot has fallen to
you, Faille, make the most of it and remember that "He who listens, learns." fWe, the Class Book

"A countenance in which did meet."
After the large fire that destroyed the greater part of Troy's famous Institute there was much talk
"pro and coni' as to whether this seat of learning should remove to New York or remain in this City.
The controversy was finally settled when May Swartwout decided that New York was too far from home
for her and she couldn't think of changing her posiiion. Thereupon the authorities began to rebuild on
- the old site and are now contemplating annexing I3 Eagle Street in view of the best interest of the school.
It would save the boys so many excuses. May knows a lot about politics, on the subject of free silver
she is very conversant. Bryan, of course, stands for free silver. l-ie didn't know May when he made his
presidential campaigns or we do not doubt that she would have inspired him to success. lVlay herself
is president of that wonderful Literary Owl Society and she fills the position with the utmost dignity. For
instance: At one of the recent meetings there was some slight noise and delay before the session began and
shortly after the meeting was called to order there was a rap on the door. Miss Swartwout answered it.
Invisible voice "Are any of the young men's hats or shoes in there?,' Swarty looking heavenwards while
some of the things aforementioned are hurriedly sat down on, coolly replies, "No, I fail to see any." The
invisible voice disappears. And what charming veracity! One thing, Swarty has a rather indiscriminate
liking for, is mustaches-pink ones. We here advise our long-suffering friend, Mitchell Decroot, to raise
one, only pray that nothing but pink will be considered. One of her foxy men friends lately divul-
ged the secret of how Swarty's O. has changed hands. it is a shocking story that will be told here-
after. When her history is printed in the theatrical magazines Swarty will star in the new play "Texas,',
written specially for her and her success is apt to be phenomenal for her heart is in it.

Van is one of our beauties. His looks fespecially the hairD are famed 'far and wide. This is a
shame, because all the girls are jealous of him and refuse to notice his cute tricks. ln the French class
he is the Hcynosuren of neighboring eyes. 'iDicky,' thinks he's "it," but then that's nothing, Dick has lots
more. Van does stunts in there for the benefit of the girls, and although they, as a rule, do not care for
them, they have to laugh, as these tricks resemble the capers of a dozen monkeys on parade. Here Mar-
garite Birge sees her future husband at his best. Ask her to show you the valentine Van sent her. It
Was a dandy. Oh! l-le is in love, all right. ln the French comedy class one would think that Van was
a walking book of epitaphs. I-le is also a favorite of Miss Grout's and runs a dead heat with Bailey for
chief errancl boy of the said teacher's room. His good looks help him quite a bit there, together with his
smiling face fminus Bailey's patent roarb. Taken all in all, We believe that Van is the exact replica of
the beautiful "Hehe" fwith apologies to I-lebej. As a summary We will tell of his great chance in life
with a little ditty, thus:
"W'e all can boast some specialty.

This very quiet little product of Lansingburg dropped down on High School September Sth, l906,
and was one day discovered at a class meeting, whereupon. she was known to be a member of this, our
most illustrious class. Although Flossie is very quiet and undemonstrative, she has a "will" of her own.
In spite of opposition it is Flossie's desire to go to Holland, after she has finished with the "High," so as to
improve her infant mind by study. This enforced separation will no doubt occasion some distress to her
forsaken friends, and with all sympathy for the gentleman in question we ask: "HOW WILL HE

Did you hear somebody laugh? That was Mary, all rights She has the funniest and the jolliest
laugh of any girl in High School. However, we beg you not to think that Mary is uninclined to down-
right seriousness. Why only just recently she made the remark that she was going up to the Institute
QR. P. lj next year with the expectation of becoming a civil engineeress. Such ambition in one so
young is almost incredible. However, she has already attained part of the goal. She's engineeress al-
right, only it happens to be domestic, not civil. For some four years now she has been engineering one
of our High School friends in a manner most credible, and the signs are that she will continue to do so in
the future. ln view of these circumstances it is scarcely fair to say anything about the two fellows who
fell in love with her last summer and who bothered her friends with their mighty serenades, or of the Am-
herst man who came near upsetting things for awhile, or ofthe Holy Cross student who still hopes. The
other man, our friend Mr. Merriam, might object, so, as Marcus Kiclceronius says, "We will pass these
over in silence."
Qne thing, however, we must say, and that is that Mary is a clever actress. She took the part of
Alice Roosevelt most successfully for three consecutive days. She dances very Well, in testimony whereof

Alex has attended Sunday School for ten year without missing a Sabbath. For this he has received a
silver spoon each year. These substantial reminders of his virtues are closely guarded by a young lady from
Beman Park district. Alex is going to go two years more to Sunday School, and then the dozen spoons
will be put to practical use. Watervliet's representative at Rand's refers to Powell as the "cute little
usherf' but to use one of Mr. Lansingis stock phrases, 'lshe is the extenuating circumstance that palliates
the offense." Powell himself is quite a connoisseur of female beauty. The mere passing of a pretty

other honor that she is entitled to is that she is the only member of the uCollege English" class that

"Burlce's Conciliation" she conciliated Miss G. ln doing this she has made up for the deficiencies of the

WILLIAM TROTTER, Thompson St.
Gnce a meek and mild youth was this boy Trotter. Who should have thought that such a change
might be wrought in one? Now we see the boy with the very swing, the very air of a clean-cut, un-
adulterated high-roller. Yes, Hl..ou Dillonf' as he is commonly known to the Cornell lass and her friends,
was not always a thoroughbred. We are told the transformation took place when Margaret came into his
life. She it was who learned him how to appreciate the silvery moon as it rested its mellow light on
the waters of Burden's pond. She was certainly a wise Stewart, for no man feels so much of life as he who
dips into its every pleasure. Lou dipped so much, however, that he got dippy over his newly discovered
pleasures-Margaret, the moon and the croaking frogs, and became at once a love maniac-a true
Leander of,fortune. All in all we think his transformation a good thing: it gave him a prospective grip
on to a marriageable quantity and made him a good fellow in every sense of the word, quiet, unassuming
and without that rip-snorting bombast so pregnant in our general circle.

"Small in size but huge in depravity."
Who is that little Hy-away, anyway?" was the question asked by a visitor at the school one day,
looking at this youngster. Well, we answered as best we could, and that ended that incident. Above
all else she is a captivator of the weaker sex. Ask lVlr. Ludden. He is pretty good authority on Blanche.
If you want to get a good accountof sport get Blanche to tell you about those evenings at dancing

All but the horns, and Ed. gives her his Wings instead. ln his eyes she is the personilication of an

that he and Ed. are about to star in "The Two Rivals." Of course, Blanche does not say who her

HAROLD MORE, 47 Francis Ave.
This boy is one of those whose appearance does not belie him. I-le is every bit as harmless as he
looks. l-le is mildly popular among the fair sex, and the girls will tell you he is rather 'lcunningf' but
thus far we are inclined to believe that he has never been hard enough hit to disturb his quiet and restful
repore. Although "Child Haroldl' is reported to have a girl all to himself, we must be allowed to doubt
this story, unless the girl be a rag doll, for in school at least, he is accustomed to lead a girl on to that
stage when, like Qliver Twist, she says, "I want some lVlore,', and then leave her in the lurch. If the
story be true, however, then the girls should be complimented on her dexterity, for she has been able to
land a slippery customer which has stolen the bait from off the hooks of High School girls reputed as being
expert lisher-Women. Among the male portion of the class he is generally considered as a Hnice little boy,"
but never as a "good fellowf, To hit the mark in the bull's eye l-larold may be classed amongst those
harmless lunatics who do their French prose and translations every day. '

this way. I-le went out with the ubunchi' to get the ,05 Hag. About two a. m. he landed in a barn
with four other fellows. "Chance" immediately went to sleep in an open carriage, his feet hanging out
on one end, his head on the other. The remainder of the fellows played cards. When the game broke
up they put one burning candle on his chin and one on his forehead. Then they threw the card table at

he slept right on. When the gang decamped Chance had to be hauled out by his heels and have his head
banged against the Hoor before he came to consciousness. However, Packard has a maiden in "'Chan-

If - studyinglthis interesting subyect. Among the rare specimens are Shetland ponies and Persch. That
- ' Allan w1ll soon be wedded to his profession is a foregone conclusion, but which of the branches he intends
.- to follow is still an open question. A selection has thus far seemed difficult, but as Allan is soon going
far away to Ithaca, he will have ample time to ponder this perplexing question. The question is "Do l
prefer to guide a "Shetland" pony through life or to imarry, Etta Persch?"
"There are as good Hsh in the sea as have ever been caught."

"So fine, petite and artistic." Gaze at this dear little creatureis head and you will detect not only

sumes that haughty look so common to all of us, used by the rest of the fair ones in the class, especially
the O. May is hail-fellow well met. If you know her once you know her always and if you want
to know her, just go to any decent dance and inquirewithin. You surely will find her and she is certainly
a terror with the clogs. Everytime she gets the chance she trips the light fantastic toe. l-fer dresses are
all the style. She is a model of perfection no matter where she goes, and the worst part of May is that
when a fellow meets her she makes him think he is the goods. Poor fellow! l received the above in-

Dub's brothers think the same, for they rave all the time. If I took space to tell all the Hirtations ancl

When Ed entered the "school" her ambition was to stand at the head of her class during the four
years. Now, although we do not exactly know for certain, we feel pretty sure that she has succeeded.
As far as we can remember it is impossible to get even a suspicion of a llunk on any of Edna's book
records. She is a strict believer in Mr. Gardner's methods of note book work, and always has a good one
for the rest of the pupils to copy. We believe that hard work has had no effect on her constitution. It
certainly looks as "hale" and hearty as ever. Latin, German, or anything she ever took at the "High" roll
from her tongue as easily as water from grease. Now, if you want to see this prodigy, just cofne to our
commencement, and don't look for a small, lean maiden, but for one that will tip the scales at about 210.
When one asks Edna what she has on her report card she looks surprised and says HA." Now,
this is not conceit, but just custom.. As the outlook appears, Edna seems to be booked for a life of
surprises. We predicti that she will be a Women,s Suffragist. If she turns out so she will be a worthy
successor to Susan B.

though it were an experiment. As to stealing fudges every day he may be seen doing the line of

"Percy', while I have the room is that he has a terrible swelled head. Why, when he was elected
captain of the baseball team he had to adopt a new walk to suit his altered dignity. The reason I tell
this is that I donit think that Percy realizes what he is doing. Although he is a terrible kid, he'll do.

This is Ed. Clohessey, commonly known as "The Wise Guy" and "Old Top" among his friends.
Some people think Ed. is lazy, but that is not so. l-le is only tired. Ed. is quite a chemist, too. He once
threw a ball of potassium from the lab Window into a snow bank just to see what it would do. Ask
him what was the result. If anybody asks him why he does not go to work, he tells them that he is too
delicate or he is not old enough. His favorite evening haunt is a back street on Stowe Hill, where he
is often seen hugging trees. I do not know what the attraction is, but he will answer that question. Ed.
once had the reputation of being a bashful youth, but, alas, one morning he came to school with a long
blonde hair dangling from his coat collar. After that you could not hold him. Why, it is said that he
went so far as to flirt with the models in Frearis windows. Ed. is a charter member in the "Chuckers
Clubn and is also quite a rough-houser. He and our editor had a little mix up and the result was that
some of the High School furniture went to the shop for repairs. Old Top is a sport from his shoe laces
up, and his motto is, 'iBe a sport if you have to walk home." So, any day that you are feeling lucky
just call him up and he will shoot a stack with you. After Ed. graduates he is going into business selling
second hand coffins-a rather dead business, and one with little work in it as you will note. I-le and
Mac are the theatrical bulletins of the T. I-l. S. If you want to know how the show in the Troy or Albany
theatres are ask him. I-le never misses any of the performances at the Royal or Proctor's and knows all
the actresses in and about Troy, although they have not had the honor of knowing him.

"But Brutus says that Caesar is ambitious
And it were so, it were a grievous fault,
And grievously hath Caesar answered it."
Ryan, early in his sophomore year, being desirous of fame, procured the Websterian "Rule-book"
Cbetter ask "Coppie" where the remains are that Ryan did not devourj and devoured them page by
page. Since that time his interior anatomy has consisted of a heart QD, a brain QU, a stomach, etc.,
and a Roberts' Rule or Order. Ever since that fateful day, in season and out of season, in the meetings
of the Athletic Association and out of them, John Power has always insisted that all Work should be
carried on according to its precepts, interpreted, of course, by himself. So persistent is he that he has ac-
quired the name of "Roberts-rules-of-order Ryan," and the "Power" of his middle name is universally
recognized as the strength of bull-dog tenacity, and plugging away at a thing until he gets his wishes.
Fired at the success in this line Ryan has determined to become a lawyer. It is then but a short shift
to the Legislature. We sincerely hope that Ryan will not be elected, for we hate to see an honest man
corrupted. But if it ever comes about, John, you will certainly succeed-if you drop those pig-headed
ideas of yours into the deep fiowing Hudson and stop howling in an argument.

A monstrous dead head is Loeble, one of the heavy weights in the class. This boy imagines that
he is a poet and he wastes hours of valuable time writing still less valuable poetry. It is so bad that it -

chase a new hat directly after his father testified that Charles was Noondutiblyn his son. Everyone was

painted in glowing terms to make a lasting impression on his puerile mind. But it is related that one
night "Matt,' forgot. It was three A. M. when the heir to the Packs reached home. The family must
not be awakened at any cost, so off came Mattis shoes. He laid them on the piazza while he unlocked
the door, went in and to bed. Three hours later he was awakened by his mother. Being the first to
arise she had found the shoes where he had left them, forgetting to take them in. Holding them over
his head she asked the dreaded question, "What time did you come in last night?" When Pack gets

Daily this fierce challenge rings from the stern lips of Miss Kirschner. Etta turns white and trembles,
muttering to herself, "I cannot tell a lief' Yet, some way or other the answer always comes "Noi"
It all happened through Etta lending her cast-off William Tell to a junior. The junior had a cinch ffor a
timej, but lVliss K. soon suspected that the book held other things besides German betwixt its covers. So
she investigated. It was an interlinear trot to be proud of. But, horrors! On the very first page was written
the name of Etta Patton. Reasoning from deduction Miss K. deduced that the book in question must
have belonged to the young lady in question. From that moment till Etta left Third Year Deutch she has
been suffering from this youthful incliscretion in lending her book to a junior.

"The single life."
This young lady has already arrived at the conclusion that she will never marry. We will not com-
ment on the foolishness of this statement, but we will say that we doubt if she will keep her promise. l-ler
one ambition is to have a Htagger on,', or in other pai-lance a pair of pants and a cutaway coat. We do
not know whether Marietta is in love with any-body or not, but to judge from the fact that she is the
only girl in the Creek class we do think that it is mighty hard if she is not. Speaking of that Greek class,
it may be stated that she is very fond of animals. She had a horse fa real, live onel, and what do you
think she did? Why, she named him Homer. It was a struggle, l tell you, for her not to name it Aeneas.
You see she had these two horses once and they became torn apart, so she got another and as she loved
the old skates so deeply she simply settled it by tossing a nickle in the air and trusting to luck. She has
never been to a dance, but she says with an evil glitter in her eye, "Wait till l get away to college." So,
waiting 'to hear what will be doing we remain patiently yours, now and forever. Amen.

This is no doubt true in a general way, but De Groot is an exception to this rule. I-le is universally
recognized as the greatest hot air that the Class of '06 has been able to produce fand that is saying a good
dealj. For speed, steady power and general economical efficiency, he has every other pattern beaten a

l00,000 calories. l-le is able to give any other boy or girl fLillian exceptecll in the class 30 to l and

De Groot is a general favorite with the fairer sex, notwithstanding the general desire of the girls to
have the last word. fThis is a physical impossibility where Mitchell is concernedj However, his
Hcutenessn compensates for his less desirable qualities. l-le is popular also because he is able to make

number of admirers as the "Princess Curlf' Some of the old maids of the class, namely the 0. Q., look '
upon it as unbecoming a student of the T. I-l. S., and especially a Senior. But this is the criticism of the
minority. Marie is quiet, though she has her fond admirers. One, a certain John Power Ryang his attach-

Mathematics and in the Chemical Lab. I-le is noted as a carpenter and builder and has also worked at

study chemistry, but, strange to say, this is not his greatest ambition. No, Walter and his friend l-libbarcl
desire to get a bunch together, proceed to the Western plains and try cow punching for a year or two.
Whether Koerner thinks that the companionship of the cows would be conducive to his peace of mind, or
whether, having worked at all trades in this part of the country, he is looking for new worlds to conquer,
we do not know. But we fear that a broncho who would be willing to bear Koerner's weight for long
would be hard to find, and l well, Walter, you might better dare the explosives of the Chemical Lab.

Undoubtedly, in the class of l906 bashful boys abound, but for a case of bashfulness carried to
extremity we have but to turn to Burke. He has never addressed himself to a young lady without getting
red in the face. Why, it is a known fact that he intended to go to every dance this year and he had the
girls picked out and all, But the only thing that deterred him was that he was too bashful to ask her or
couldn't get one to ask, as some of his friends assert. Over in the Frat one day they made Burke put on
the gloves with another fellow and announced that the winner would have his dues cancelled for a week.
Well, you ought to have seen the two of them biff each other around. Money is a great inducement. After
fighting for about an hour and when "Whitey', was about to win, the bout was stopped and declared
a draw. Therefore, since there was no winner no dues were cancelled. Burke is still sore.

Miss Sibbald believes Clifton has marked traces of the ancient Creek in him. "Ah,', she is wont to
exclaim, as this modern Athenian passes, "So much of the Apollo in that head." l-lis Hlokkesn cast a
fascinating charm over all the girls of the class, and with what envy do they look upon that fair one of the
'07 class. But Clifton is no "Tess,,' so we'll leave all this to those more interested and drift on to
something else. Upicklesi' constitutes a part of Dick l..ent's fixtures day and night, and in consequence
is something of a sport. Early in his I-Iigh School career he played pool a great clealg now, however,
since he has assumed the proportions of a professional, he looks on and discusses school politics or some-
thing else of more or less interest. To look at him under these circumstances one would not think he was
married. But he is, and has been for some time. How it came about we hardly know, but his wife
was not "his hrst and only love." Quinny once was his, and there were others as sublime or sublimer.
Cliftonis liking for a try at the machine or a whack at something else of luck is well illustrated in his mat-
rimonial affairs. l-le is now in a "Bond',ing business and from all appearances it looks to be a successful
one. There is one thing about this boy, Clifton, however, that commands admiration, and that is, he
cloesnit make love in the glare of the electric light, as so many of the fellows clo. l-lis is, "to love quietly is

he seemed to put his foot in it. This Wasn,t because he didn't know, but because he had no great power
of ready expression, and, if there Was one thing Miss Fuhlhagge demanded, it was that Mac is quite a
"lout" student too. One day Clifton distinguished himself by stating that Pope was at the head of the
Romantic school of poetry, and Mac followed with one better, namely, 'Blake and Collins were poets of
the latter half of the l9th Centuryf' Now, Mac's love affairs are singular in fact as well as name.
Early in his Junior year We heard a great deal about McNaughton and Lee. Though he had but little
acquaintance with this prima donna, he felt, nevertheless, that it might be that he was the cynosure of
Mattie's eyes. It caused him such perturbation of mind that one evening he resolved "to do or die." After
taking particular pains with his toilet, he left home and and arrived at Mattie's door. l-le was met there
by her mother who ushered him into the parlor or udenn fwe don't know whichl, and it was not until
then that he awoke. There sat the majestic John, of '04, Henjoying all the comforts of home." Mac

students passing to the classes. ln this way she becomes quite well acquainted with their faces. Indeed,
so familiar are they to her that she often forgetsf?D and speaks to them. At the beginning of our senior
year we noticed that 'Adelaide's writing improved wonderfully. Every book that she owned was filled
with the most artistic scrolls and flourishesf Upon inquiring into the matter we learned that she had been
taking writing lessons from a certain T. A. student. l-le found it necessary on that account to give lessons
six nights in a week, so it is no wonder she made rapid progress. We also suppose that that was the

We certainly are fortunate in having so many bashful girls among us. It brings us back to the serious
side of life. They say Elsie never laughs or even smiles when she is out among strangers. She and Anna
Gormly have been fast friends throughout the four years at school and they're "two of a kind." Solemn,
quiet, matter-of-fact sort of girls who never like to talk long with those creatures known as the sterner
sex. Elsie is very good looking fwe're afraid if we said pretty, it would have a bad effect upon herf.
Let's hope that Elsie will "get acquaintedn and become more jovial and enjoy some of the good old times
we have had.

"Af thousand Cupids in those locks do sit."
Edith is one of our quiet girls, at least she looks quiet. The old saying Hstill water runs deep"
might apply to her. They say she is an awful cut-up, at home. That dimple stands for mischief, so
trotter says, and he ought to know. Edith worked for Dig good and hard in the class election, because
as she said "he used to go to the same school with me down in old South Troy." We would like to
hear some of those tales of our president's youthful days, Edith. No doubt they would be interesting.
Edith doesn't believe in studying hard. In fact she didn't believe in it at all until her senior year and
then she took a brace. Edith's fort is in the Writing of original stories. Such heart-rending scenes, such
hair-breadth escapes as she enacts calls forth from our English teachers such admonitions as that ,"It would be
well if you did not read so many of those Jesse James and Diamond Dick stories." If Edith had the
writing of this, it would be her best work, I am certain.

all the wild flowers grow, the habits of all the wild animals on the Poestenkill Divide and what the New

John D. lectures with marked regularity, but pays very little attention to the donkeyis tail, and thus receives
fewer kicks than the larger Hmutsu of the class. He knows no royal road that leads from the lecture

7' HE Websteriaiu Debating Society was formed
Tuesday, September 28, 1897, The first
meeting was held at that date in the City
Hall. The charter members were: Anson
Belding, '99g Arthur Black, '993 John
Bradley, ,995 Joseph Brainard, '00: Louis Chaloux,
'00g Archie Cullen, 'OOQ Henry Hasbrook, 'OOQ Eustace
Hulsapple, '99g Albert T. Olmstead, '98g Philip Par-
thesius, '00g Harvey Martin, '99g Richard McGonigal,
'98g Theodore St. John, '9S. It may be interesting
to Yifebsterian members to know something about
these men who laid the foundations of debating at
our school. Belding was a Phi Betta Cappa man at
Harvard and is now Principal of the Simmsbury
CConn.J High School. Black graduated at Harvard
and is now attending the Harvard Law School.
Bradley, an alumnus of Union, was a night school
teacher in Troy last year. Brainard went to Dart-
mouth and is at present engaged in a large New
York City advertising concern. Chaloux received a
Phi Betta Cappa key at Syracuse University and
from there went to the Drew Theological Seminary
at Madison, New Jersey. Cullen graduated from the
Albany Medical College and is now engaged in p1'aC-
tice in W'atervliet. Hasbrook graduated at Cornell,
and is now there serving as Assistant Registrar.
Hulsapple went to Union. Olmstead went to Cornell
He received a scholarship for proficiency in history
and was also honored with a Phi Betta Cappa key.
After graduating he went to the far east. His re-
searches there won him international fame. Later he
was elected a Fellow of the American Oriental So-
ciety. Parthesius took a course in Civil Engineering
at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is at the
present time employed on Troy's new water works
system. Martin went to the Berkley Divinity School,
Middletown, Conn. McGonigal graduated from Cornell
Law School and is now practicing in New York City.
St. John was a Phi Betta Cappa man at Columbia.
Aft-er graduating from the Columbia Law School he
began practicing and is now in a noted New York
One can easily see that the founders of the Wela-
sterian were far from lacking in mental endowment.
They were recently characterized by Prof. Wal1'at11
as being "fine boys." Many of them have gained
marked success in college and in later life, as de-
baters, due to a great extent to their early training
in the Websteriaii. The X7Vebsterian has enlarged the
field of its endeavors. The regular debate still holds
a prominent place. However, last year for a few
meetings the society resolved itself into a Common
Council and adopted the forms of that body, the
members being aldermen and each one assigned a
ward of the city, which was his special care, This
year trials were held, Bailey, '06, the President of
the society, being tried and found guilty of various
charges unbecoming a member of the society. He
was impeached and later reinstated. Regular court
forms were used and prosecuting and defending at-
torneys were allowed to plead the case before judges.
Witnesses were examined and the verdict given for
or against the prisoner. In one case De Groot and
Gillespie, prosecuting attorneys, came marching into

De Groot's fatherj. Ryan and Coplon, not to be out-
done, went out and found an old dictionary bound
like a law volume in which they would look up from
time to time questions bearing on the case. The
society never found how much law there was betwixt
the covers of that old tome, but it must have been
a revised edition of every code in the world. Carroll
has become famous for his rulings while judge of
the VVebsterian Court. Diggery testified that he did
not know what swearing was. Since his connections
with the society, Meredith has been agitating the
adoption of a pin. The society is still pinless, how-
ever. Beiermeister is noted for his silence, De Groot
for his tautology and Coplon for connrmed opposition
to every measure brought up.
the police situation, while Ryan is satisfied with a
book of parliamentary rules written by Col. Roberts.
Pack votes as De Groot does. Brust and Burns never
speak unless obliged and Thomas and Fursman are
the chief causes of trouble and disorder, as well as
the charges against Bailey. Roddy always expresses
his views on a subject, Rosen and Sharlot are known
as the Heavenly Twins, and Byrne is conspicuous
by his absence. Last spring a public joint debate
was held in the assembly hall with the Pierian Soci-
ety. The question, "Resolved, That Trust and Monop-
olies Are Detrimental to the United States," was up-
held on the negative side by the Websterian, whose
speakers were Charles Calkins, '05, leader: Charles
Diggery, '06g Harry Coplon, '06, and Russell D.
Meredith, '06, alternate. The Websteriaii carried oft
the oratorical honors. The point for rhetoric was
evenly divided, but the Pierian was awarded the
honors for logic. This was the verdict of the majority
of the judges: Mr. James H. Potts and Mr. Herbert
Lansdale, Police Justice Abbott H. Jones, the third
judge, thought that the Websteriaii brought the
strongest points and should be awarded the decision.
It was a hard side to uphold and our debaters ac-
quitted themselves most creditably. The debate this
year between the two societies was: "Resolved, That
it would be contrary to the best interests of munici-
palities of ten thousand or more inhabitants in the
United States for the said municipalities to own and
operate plants and other necessary apparatus for
supplying water, light and surface transportation."
The Websteriaii debaters who defended the af-
firmative were: John Power Ryan, '06, Russell D.
Meredith, '06g Harry G. Coplon, '06, and Irving J.
Sharlot, '06, alternate. The present members of the
DE GROOT, '06,
BEIERMEISTER, '0 6,
SHARLOT, '06, G-ABELER, '07.
The 1906 men who have had the honor to wield the
gavel are Diggery, Ryan, Coplon, Meredith and
Bailey. The Websterian Society was at first frowned
upon by the faculty, but now it is recognized as one
of the greatest institutions of High School life.

Philornathian Literary and Debating Society
HE Philomathian Literary and Debating Soci-
ety was formed December 4, 1904, by the
young ladies of the Senior class for the
development of the mind and for fluency of
speech C35 obtained by constant research
and free discussion. VVith that end in view the soci-
ety has met bi-monthly always with crowded meet-
ings, for an absence was an offense and the offender
was fined a small fee. But, as the program was at
times far from interesting, the young ladies changed
it to the following:
The usual Debate,
Papers on Current Events,
Critieisms on Current Fiction and life of Author
An original story.
Reading from the works of some eminent author,
A quotation from the author's Works, and an anec-
dote concerning him.
Though this was rather lengthy it was almost
always completed before adjournment. And yet it
was not all work. Long will we, Seniors, look back
with tender memories to the time when we gathered

Pierian Society History
N FRIDAY. October 15, 1904, preliminary ar-
rangements were made for establishing a
debating society in the school. Two weeks
after, the organization of the "Pierian
and Debating Society" was perfected, and
tne society started on its career with nineteen charter
members. the following being the officers: James W.
Smith, '06, Presidentg Norman Nairn, '05, Vice-
presidentg Henry H. Swink, '06, Secretary. Meetings
were held on alternate Friday afternoons in the school
building, where a program consisting of a debate and
other literary work, was carried out.
In February, a challenge calling for a public joint
debate between the Pierian and XVebsterian Societies
was received from the Wfebsterian Society, and was
promptly accepted. The subject chosen by the Web-
sterian Society read as follows: "Resolved, That
Trusts and Monopolies Are a Detriment to a Coun-
try." The Pierian Society elected to debate on the
affirmative side. The team was composed of James
XV. Smith. '06, leaderg Norman Nairn, '05, and Alex-
ander Alexander, '07, assistants, and Fay S. Hol-
The debate took place in the High School Assembly
Hall in April, 1905, Principal Martin H. Wal1'ath of
the High School presiding. and with the following
acting as judges: James Potts, of the "Troy Times"
staff: Herbert Lansdale, General Secretary of the Y.
M. C. A., and Judge Abbot Jones. The debate was
a very interesting one, the decision being awarded
to the affirmative, supported by the Pierian debating
team . Thus the Pierian Society, although it had not
yet completed its first year, lowered the colors of its
older rival in the first annual joint debate between
the societies, and won the debating "championship"
of the Troy High School. A successful year was
brought to a close in June, when the officers were
elected for the ensuing term beginning in the follow-
ing September. Fay Stanley Holbrook. '06, was
chosen President: Henry H. Swink, '06, Vice-Presi-
dent, and John F. English, '07, Secretary. The soci-
ety lost by graduation Norman Nairn and J. Harry
Egolf, James W. Smith, '06, also retired, leaving
High School to pursue his studies at the Albany Law
The first meeting- of the second year was on Friday,
October 21, when the newly elected officers took up
their duties. Meetings were held regularly as usual,
thereafter. On December S, Clarence Dunwoodie,
'07, was elected Secretary in place of English, who
left High School for Georgetown University. In De-
cember a challenge was sent to the Websterian Soci-
ety and was accepted by them, calling for a joint
debate in February, 1906. The subject for debate
was chosen by the Pierian Society as follows: "Re-
solved, That it would not be wise for the municipal-
ities of the United States to own and operate plants
for supplying water, light and surface transportation."
No reply was received for over eight weeks, during
which time the Pierian Society elected oflicers for
the second term. Fay S. Holbrook was re-elected
President, Henry H. Swink, Vice-president, and
Stephen Burke was elected Secretary. About the
middle of February the subject was returned by the
VVebsterian, with a request that the form of word-
ing be changed. Inasmuch as the month of Febru-
ary, the time specified in the challenge for the hold-
ing of the debate, was already more than half over,
the Pierian Society considered that the request was
a Very tardjo one. However, the reluctance of the
Wfebsterian Society only whetted the anxiety of the
Pierian Society to hold debate, and, therefore, the
subject was changed and resubmitted as follows:
"Resolved, That it would be contrary to the best
interests of the municipalities of the United States,
of more than 10,000 population, for said municipal-
plants and other necessary
water, light and surface

all hope of debate was
was received April 6th, notifying the Pierian Society
that the Vifebsterian had elected to argue on the
affirmative side. 'The debate occurred May 16th
in the Assembly Hall, Prof. Wallaath presiding.
Judge M, A. Tierney, EX-Judge L. E, Gridith and
XV. W Rousseau were the judges. The decision was
in favor of the negative, supported by the Pierian
Society, which, therefore, retains the High School
debating supremacy, having won both of the joint
debates between the societies.
URING the autumn of 1903, a fever, by
name, the 'ifraternity craze," swept our
school. The sophomore class, among the
nrst, caught it. Here began the history
of our noble society. The girls sitting in
Mr. Edwards' room were affected the same as all
the rest. At a meeting a sorority consisting of seven
girls was formed. After due consideration it was de-
cided to call ourselves the META." The object of the
sorority was at Hrst a laudable one, namely. "To
have weekly meetings of a literary-social character.
Witli this end in View a president was elected and
everything arranged for the development of the mind.
But, alas! The best laid plans of mice and men aft

then formed a Sorority and called them-
selves the O. Q. They have never
divulged the meaning of those two letters and, as
they say, never will. This Sorority was formed
merely for a good social time. It is the oldest girls'
society in the school, being organized January 15,
1904. We think that we can safely say that it has
been the most prominent also.
The club is composed of nine members:

to discuss more interesting, but probably less elevating AGNES NAIRN1 '

school year. The dances are popular with the school I

thirty-fourth chapter of Theta Phi in
New York State. As the T. P. U., it was
organized November, 1905, from which time
it has occupied rooms in the Hall Building.
In April of the following year, for various reasons,
it was re-organized, having' secured a chapter from
the before mentioned Theta Phi. The members of

Skating and bobbing parties were held throughout
the first winter of our existence. Our sorority
fraternized with the F. G. F. boys of the '05 class.
Colors were chosen and in the following year we be-
gan to take an active part in the life of the school.
Meetings are held every two weeks at our respective
homes. Many of the happiest times of our schol
life have been held at these gatherings and the pic-
nics and rides which grew out of them. On Friday
evening, February 23, 1906, the T. A. S. gave an in-
formal reception and dance at the Riverside Club.
It proved one of the prettiest affairs of the season
and was largely attended by the school. But as
graduation draws near no thought of discontinuing
the happy meeting of our little society enters our
mind. All our members are determined to enjoy
again the social events which have drawn the at-
tention of our class-mates.

Words By Margaret Colvin.
' Music by John P. Ryan
O, have you heard of Naughty-Six,
Of all we've done in these four years,
How teachers, patience we've sore tried,
E'en though our genius theyyd admit?
.lf not, we're gathered here to-day
To tell you some things we have done.
And you, our friends, shall judge the case,
If Naughty-Six has not had fun.
O, here's a song for Nineteen-Six,
For she's a class both tried and true.
She's worthy and she's merry, too,
And ever loyal to her school.
So sing as ne'er before you've sung
To gold and white, your colors dear,
A song of all the dear old days,
And end with "Ana," true and clear.
When Freshmen, we to High School came,
We were as timid and fair
As all these modest daisies here,
That nod a greeting to you all,
But when at last to Sophs we grew,
'Twas then we thought we owned the school.
For reasons good, as you shall see,
For a double-headed class were we.
And now, as Seniors, are we here,
The topmost round of the ladder reached,
While wisdom, noble and serene,
Has laid her hand upon each brow,
And now our High School days are oier,
But, though so soon we are to part,
Let not this song a farewell be,
But, rather,-"Till we meet again."

HE greatest interest has always been shown
in athletics at the Troy High School.
They develop both the mind and body and
tend to make a spirit in the young man
or woman which will rise to meet all emer-
gencies and conquer all difliculties. This has always
been our principal idea and, to say the least, it has
been hailed with delight by all the students. It has
not stopped with the boys, for the young ladies have
taken up athletics with a spirit commendable in the
weaker sex. They have tried their hand at basket-
ball and bowling with marked success.
Greater by far the success of the boys. On almost
every field hereabouts have our banners waved vic-
toriously and our conquering cheers boomed triump-
antly. But one regrettable fault in latter years has
been the petty jealousies which have arisen in all
the branches of our sport. It has lost the day for us
on many a hard fought Held just because somebody
is "sore," Taken all in all, the track appeals most
to us. It is the best paying sport and well attended
by the school and alumni. Foot-ball comes next, and
here it is that the High School colors are always
victorious with any team of their own weight.
Even Riverview has fallen to the T. H. S. In latter
years not so much spirit has been shown as might
be wished for, or commendable teams not always
turned out, but, in the long run, it may be said,
without boasting that the athletics at the Troy High
School have been in every respect clean and above
board. Little, if any, "professionalism" has ever
marred our fair name. In all sport, no class has ever

recognized sport under the constitution of the T. H. S.
In the two years that have passed Hockey teams
have made a creditable showing and, although they
have. not won all their games, have won a majority
of them, and when defeatedit was by no mean op-'
ponents, but by fast teams whose reputations were
already made and 'who had had more experience than

Prof. Lundy's definition of the ancient warriors
substitute-One who carries his dinner pail.
Prof. Lundy-"lf Water is added to sand, what
does it form?
Little lines of Latin,
Little grains of scan,
Make up mighty Virgil
And a crazy man.
Miss Kirschner-i'What does Water do when it
Benson fthinking for a few minutes,-"It boils."
Laugh, and the World laughs with you.
Snore, and you sleep alone.
fQuoted by Norris to Fobes at Colgatej
If 32 is freezing, what is squeezing? Answer:-
Two in the shade.
Here lieth the body of Arthur Lundy,
Mouth almighty large and nose according.
Stranger! Tread lightly o'er this wonder,
For if he opens his mouth,
Youire gone, by thunder.
Here lieth De Groot,
Who cashed his checks too soon,
For his lungs burst one day
ln a chewing array
And he's gone to the man in the moon.
Mr. Mors' examples in physics-"What is a pound
of prunes worth if a rotten egg, falling twenty-three
feet, breaks a pine shingle?"
If fourteen yards of tripe make a baby elephant's
undershirt how many oysters make an upright piano?
The devil mate the wind
That blows the ladies' skirts knee high,
But the Lord is just,
He made the dust
That blows in the bad man's eye.

Too easy to jump and run,
But when it comes to study,
That almost breaks my 'ibunf'
01d Homer taught us thus to speak,
If not sense-at least, Creek.
A youth who runs before he sets,
A grind who plugs for all he gets,
A sport who never pays his bets.
As big a bluff as stands by river's banks.
A most scurrilous production.
Stiii beer, chawing tobac, a girl in a smart dress, are
the best things l can think of.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
Thereis sfnall choice in rotten apples.
So mild, so merciful, so strong, so good,
So patient, peaceful, loyal, loving, pure.

The Trial of Martin H. VValratl1
Tuesday morning, November the twenty-lirst, the students upon entering the l-ligh School, found their principal, Mr.
Wal1'ath, preparing to leave the school. The news came as a complete surprise to the student body. Later it was learned
that Superintendent l-larris had placed him under suspension, pending trial on certain charges. lndignation among the students
ran high, high because the charges were made by Mr. l-larris, who has ever been in disfavor with the student body of the
High School on account of his meddling with the affairs of the students, which would have been run better without his
Qn the spur of the moment it was decided to have the students sign a petition asking for the reinstatement of Mr. Wal'
rath bythe Board of Education. The petition was eagerly signed, but on sober second thought it was decided to abandon
this project and adopt a better course. Many, especially the under classmen, determined to quit school on a protest in
order that popular indignation might be aroused. This they attempted to do at the end of the fourth period, but were advised
to go back to their rooms and await the outcome of it all until proper information could be obtained. They did so. After
school the Senior Class held a meeting and voted to stand by lVlr. Walrath to the best of their ability. A committee was
sent to the city ofhcials cognizant of the affair to learn the reasons, if there were any, for suspension. Later, at an interview
with Mr. Harris, this worthy stated that lVlr. Walrath was unable to keep order and maintain proper discipline, had made
numerous mistakes in the books and was altogether unfit to fill the position as Principal of the Troy High School. Con-
sidering the source from whence these accusations came and knowing our Principal far too well to be able to believe them,
the student body of the Troy I-Iigh School refused to attend school next day. All the week following they went about stating
, ,, 0 0000 000 00 09 0000 0 0tl00o0 00 0 00
the case to the prominent business men of our city. This was met with success, for the citizens of Troy took the matter up
and held a meeting at the Chamber of Commerce and voted to investigate the charges. Up to this time the charges had not
been served upon Mr. Walrath, although everyone knew their contents. However, a committee was appointed by these
citizens, whose duties were to see to all matters pertaining to the affair. The charges were at length served, most of them
too trixial to mention and merely placed therein to hoodwink the public. Principal Walrath pleaded s'Not Guiltyn to each
and every charge. The trial was a farce. Important evidence for the defense was striken out unceremoniously and mere
rot was brought in to fill the record books by the prosecution. Every charge was utterly refuted, but this did not change the
decision of the "biased" judges. He was declared Hguiltyn of all the charges and removed as the Principal of the High
School. All over the city popular indignation ran high and funds were raised whereby this lawless decision might be refuted.
Another farce was here enacted. The case was appealed to the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court. Attorneys
Farrell and Gillett fought the case in such a manner that the mNVrit of Certiorarin granted by Justice Cochran was quashed.
This was one of those lawyeris tricks that you read about but which very seldom occur. This was done in order that the
Commissioner of Education at Albany, Andrew F. Draper, might have entire power if, in his estimation, Professor Walrath
deserved reinstatement. The decision of the Court of Appeals read that all matters relating to schools were in the jurisdiction
of the Commissioner at Albany.
The student body had visited Mr. Draper before regarding the case and he had expressed himself strongly in sym-
pathy with Mr. Walrath if an injustice had been done to him.
The visit of the students called forth much comment in the Albany papers, and when they now look back and review
the manner of a procession they must have made with banners inscribed, "WE WANT WALRATH,,' it certainly seemed
novel to them, to say the least.
So the much wrangled-over case was at last about to end. Before a man of Mr. Draper's stamp there could be but
one outcome and that was complete exoneration. Therefore there was no surprise when a decision was handed down re-
moving all charges as utterly false, and with this also came a biting criticism of those men who had preferred charges on a
teacher for merely political reasons. The thanks and regards of the students of the Troy High School will never be Wanting
for Andrew S. Draper, a man learned with much wisdom and in whom justice predominates.
