BUILDING A TEMPLE
A builder builded a temple,
He wrought it with grace and skillg
Pillars and groins and arches
All fashioned to work his will.
Men said as they saw its beauty
"It shall never know decay.
Great is thy skill, O builder:
Thy fame shall endure for ayef,
A teacher builded a temple
With loving and infinite care.
Planning each arch with patience.
'Laying each stone with prayer.
None praised her unceasing efforts
None knew of her wondrous plan,
For the temple the teacher builclecl
Was unseen by the eyes of man.
Gone is the builder's temple,
Crumbled into the dustg
Low lies each stately pillar,
Food for consuming rust.
But the temple the teacher builcled
Will last while the ages roll,
For that beautiful unseen temple
Is a cl1ild's immortal soul.
To the Builder of the Enduring Temple
With Best Wishes from
JOHN C. BERG,
County Superintendent of Schools

Trumbull County School District
The Trumbull County School District has
more high schools than any other county in
Ohio. There are 25 separate first grade high
schools exclusive of those in the cities of War-
ren, Niles, Girard and in the exempted village
The County School District has an area of
approximately 600 square miles, with 42
school buildings and an enrollment of 12,000
pupils. Four hundred teachers are employed
and 200 vans are used to transport the pupils
to and from school daily.
The country is completely centralized. The
first township to centralize was Gustavus,
which was the Hrst township to completely
centralize 'its schools in Ohio and also the first
in the United States. The last to centralize
its schools was that of Bazetta whose new
building will be ready for occupancy September
Ohio's school system ranks third in the
United States being outclassed only by Cali-
fornia and New Jersey.
Trumbull County's school system ranks first
in Ohio. It it first in the State in -proportion
to the number of high school pupils enrolled
in its high schools to the total population of
the country. There being one high school
pupil enrolled to every 11 inhabitants.
The tax duplicate of the County School
District is S91,801,7S0. The money invested
in buildings and grounds is approximately SS,-
0O0,000. The 1928 budget for sinking fund
and maintenance was S1,250,000. Of this
amount SS04,437 was for teachers' salaries
and S144,990 for transportation. z
Two million two hundred thousand have
been invested in new buildings and additions
in the past six years to take care of the in-
creased enrollments. A building program of
S273,000ifor the year 1929 is now beinglcom-
Trumbull County is a part of the old West-
ern Reserve District, famous for its zealous
regard for the benefits of education. This dis-
trict was settled by New Englanders, prin-
cipally Connecticut people, who brought with
them a H116 educational tradition. From its
very beginning, therefore, this section has
promoted the establishment of good schools.
The language of the famous Ordinance of 1787
indicates the intense conviction of these early
settlers: "Schools and the means of education
shall forever be encouraged."
The steadfast adherence of Trumbull County
to the cause of education has borne rich fruit
in the social and industrial life of this section.

County Superintendent of Schools.
WINNERS OF FIRST AND SECOND PLACES IN COUNTY DIVISION OF STATE
SCHOLARSHIP CONTEST. '
'To the Class of 1929
We are not playthings of Fate but masters
of destiny. A small part of the events that
crowd us may be relegated to that uncertain
sphere we call fate, chance or luck. But for
the most part we determine, our own fate by
our degree of mental alertness, by employing
our powers of imagination, a rugged will to
achieve, and unremitting industry and toll.
If you do not like the results, change the cause.
Do not blame Fate.
Many of life's most restless, discontented
and unhappy men and women are to be found
in marble palaces, while in homes of rustic
and frugal simplicity is found contentment,
peace and happiness. Refuse to permit your
soul to become sullied by petty hates and
stupid grudges. Be true to yourself and the
stings of life will be transformed into the
warm comforts of human joy.
Success is merely getting what you go
after. Have you a plan to Work? Work it-
that's success. Have you a duty to perform?
Perform it-that's success. Have you a dream
to realize? Realize it-that's success.
Success is not a secret. It is doing instead
of doubting, working instead of wishing.
Class of 1929, the world lies before you.
Meet it like Christian men and women have for
ages. The best wishes of your Superintendent,
faculty, fellow students and a host of friends
all over Trumbull County go with you. Suc-
cess to you!

District One and Two is called the Klondike School. The enrollment ranges from
thirty-eight to fifty. The old district lines are disregarded and the pupils are brought
from the more crowded sections on a bus.
The pupils take great interest in their library, literary society, and Fair work.
Their exhibit won first premium in its class at the 1928 Fair. The library comes from
the State, and is renewed each year.

The New Era
Bazetta Township is in the center of Trumbull County. Like the other Town-
ships, it is five miles square. However it is divided by the creek into two school sec-
tions, Cortland, and Vfest Bazetta.
The coming school year will mark a new era in West Bazettafs school history.
Though Cortland has possessed a centralized school for many years, West Bazetta has
continued the use of the District, or one room school. Now the' new building, where
the districts will be consolidated, is well on its way to completion, and in the autumn
of 1929 will be occupied. This April will witness the closing of the last District
Schools in Trumbull County.
Bazetta No. 3
Mrs. Claribel Young of Girard, teaches
School at Bazetta, No. 3, which is a little one-
room rural school being used for the last time. It
has been used so long that part of the boards have
rotted away, leaving the cold air into the room in
the winter time.
Next year Bazetta, No. 3, will be no more. The
children will then attend the new school which is
almost completed. The completion of the new
building will mark the end of one-room schools
in Trumbull County.
Interest in keeping the playground in good con-
dition is high and many are the good times that
have been enjoyed on this playground.
Merle Cook, Amelia Miscevich and Anna Misce-
vich have not missed a day of school this year. The
attendance for the entire school has been excellent.
Several pupils have done excellent scholastic
work this year. About the best scholar in the
school is Marie Knapp. She always has her les-
sons and aims to get one hundred in spelling every
The children have taken great pride and interest
in the appearance of their school room. The girls
embroidered Japanese curtains for the windows,
giving the room a more cheery appearance, and
the boys helped out by oiling the floor a couple of
times. The walls have been decorated with col-
ored posters made in the hygiene, geography and
other classes. A flag hangs in the front of the
room, teaching silently its lessons in patriotism
g Bazetta No.4
Wfe have enrolled thirty-seven pupils, nineteen
girls and eighteen boys.
This includes pupils in all grades, ranging from
two in some grades up to eight in others.
The boys and girls of the seventh and eighth
grades organized a Civics Club, early in Septem-
ber. The girls keep the building swept and
dusted and the boys take care of the yard.
We have five students taking music. Theda

days. These with out routine activities keep

grade, Ailie Paajanen, Edward Durst and Eugene
Our percentage of attendance has ranked
highly throughout the school year. When the flu
epidemic overtook us our percentage for Decem-
ber went down to 94.8. For January it came
back to 98.4 per cent.
Until December we had two grades with per-
fect attendance the third and the eighth. In
that month both pupils in the third grade missed
one day. The eighth grade has had perfect at-
tcndance to date.

Our band was first organized in 1924 under the direction of Mr. Frank A. Simpkins.
Seven of our present members started with the first few. We struggled along that year and
were able to play a few easy pieces. In the school year of 1925-1926 we accomplished a great
deal more. More members came in and with much hard work we won the first prize in the
Class B bands of the county under the leadership of Mr. Lawrence E. Rice.
The next year we joined the Class A bands and won third prize. We received our first
uniforms during this year. By this time we had about 20 members and were playing a better
class of music. D
The following year we won another first prize by winning the Labor Day Band Contest
held in Warren. During this year we gave a number of concerts and with the help of the
people in the community were able to purchase new uniforms, which were a splendid better-
ment to our band.
We now have only 24 members but there are a number of beginners working hard to
join us. We are now playing many selections written by Victor Herbert, F rimc, Strauss,
and many other noted composers.
There are many members of our band who have shown great musical talent which
would probably not have been discovered had not Trumbull County made such a great
effort to forward the band and orchestra movement among the pupils of the schools.
During 1925, 1926, and 1927 the County organized district bands and in 1926 and 1927
an All County Band was organized under the leadership of Mr. Frank A. Simpkins. Twelve
of our members received district diplomas and fifteen received All County Band diplomas.

With a record of 18 victories out of 21 games played, Coach Pugh produced one of the
most successful teams which has ever represented Bloomfield High School. Captain Warren
lead the team in points scored with 276 while Ruth Bradley, her running mate, was second
with 225 points. Giddings, Ennis, Young. and Peterson divided the remaining points
between them. A big share of the team's success was due to the stone wall, defense put up
by McElroy, Mack, Ennis, and Smida. These guards not only prevented their opponents
from scoring bur also developed a clever passing attack.

Playing a fighting game always, the Bloomfield boys have well matched their quick-
ness against the generally greater size of opponents. With these qualities has been the neces-
sary team-spirit-all for each, each for all. Though the score card. may rate some above
the rest, the points really were made not by individuals but by the whole team.
Probably the best game thus far was played with the undefeated Oewell team on their
floor. The splendid fighting spirit of five scarlet flashes maintained the lead through three
quarters of the game, and Bloomfield was but narrowly beaten by the Ashtabula County
leaders. Other outstanding games were those with Greene and Mecca.
Captain Maynard Berry has played a consistent game at right forward. His speed and
shooting ability have been a very noticeable part of the team's play. Berry is high scorer.
J ack Gale at the other forward has played a splendidly aggressive game. Passing well
and shooting accurately. J ack has been a quite necessary part of the team.
John Smida, center-a tower of strength on the defense and always "there" on the
offense, he has given largely to the determined, fighting spirit of the team.
Lynn Young has gua.rder well, with lots of scrap. His dribbling and shooting have
contributed much to the team's offense. An even greater factor was his speed.
Oscar Peterson, guard, has developed rapidly and has dependably helped his mates to
break the opponent's offense. "Os" has two more seasons to play for Bloomfield.
Other squad members deserving mention are Hoffman, Ed. Smida, Fagan, Thompson

School and Building
Brist.ol Township has long been a leader in progressive education. The first building
was large enough to accommodate a special school district. In 1915 the township was cen-
tralized . A nine room building was erected to care for the children. In 1926 the enrollment
increased beyond the capacity of the building. A bond issue was voted, and a modern
gymnasium and auditorium, a large assembly hall, and five other rooms were added.
The present enrollment is 305. Not all the rooms are occupied. The curriculum has
been expanded to include chemistry, vocal and instrumental music, and a complete com-

Bristol Schools, Community, and the Township are very fortunate to have such excel-

the school building. Many pupils visit it 'during the noon hour and in school hours.
The library has about six thousands volume, and a very interesting collection of curios.
Miss Gertrude Gardner has been librarian since 1914. Her kind and most ezfficient
help is greatly appreciated by school children, teachers, and patrons who call often for

The Bristol Parent Teachers' Association was organized in 1923 with thirty members and Mr. Howard Grafton
as president. Under his able leadership as president for five years, the association has grown to be one of the most
active and worthwhile associations of the community. lt has each year accomplished its aim ofbringing together the
home and the school, the parents and the teachers, which h as resulted in co-operation, each with the other for the
education of the boys and girls. Materialy the organization has aided the school in serving hot lunches to the
pupils and helping to equip the stage.
With the election of Mrs. Helen McLean as the new president, the present organization started out this year
with a membership drive, resulting in an enrollment now almost one hundred active members. Each month a corn-
mittee of parents and teachers working together has prepared interesting programs with good speakers, good music
and splendid parts by the children. This year the aim is to equip the playground for the smaller children.
Bristol High School had a tea min baseball last fall that will be remembered in years to come. There is no
doubt that Bristol had one of the strongest teams in the country last season. They won eight games out of eleven,
never being defeated by more than two scores. Throughout the entire season the team showed a great baseball
ability. The team attributes a great deal of their success to the excellent training and instruction of their coach,
Ford Clark. The boys are eagerly looking forward to the baseball -season next year and have a brilliant outlook
for the coming season. Although they lose through graduation, Peterson, their pitcher for the past three seasons,
and C. Cooper and Maenpaa, they are looking to others in the lower grades of high school, whom they believe will
capnbly ill their places.

The girls Basketball Teams deserve only the highest praise for the way in which they
carried on a losing fight during the 1928 season. It is easy enough to play the game if there
are occasional victories to cheer a tealng but only the best of sports can lose game after
game, still smile and keep going. In thal respect the Bristol Girls won victories of even
greater improtanee than a winning score.
From all indications next season will probably be more successful. None of the players
will be lost by graduation and the Junior High has promising material. With the same
'4Stick and grin" spirit again in evidence the 1929 season ought to have many surprises in
store for the girls.
Among the sports of Bristol High School, Boys Basketball is not to be slighted. We
are proud to support a team this season that has been capable of up holding the high stand-
ards in basketball as set by Barbe, Shaffer, Hyde, List, Shaws. Lyman. Gale, Fenstermaker,
Clyborn, and Seeman of past seasons.
The cagers of 1928-'29 have come through t.he season with onlythree defeats. Among
the victories are Cortland, F owler, Farmington, Greene, Kinsman, Mecca, Vienna, Gustavus
and Mesopotamia, while they have met defeat by Cortland, Champion, and McDonald.
We grieve for the loss of only one man this season, Maenpaa, who graduated this
semester. But with such men as YanDervort, Carpenter, Leatherberry and Beible to take
his place there is no reason why, they will not chalk up many victories the coming school

Braceville High School is comparatively young. The first school which provided for
a high school was built in 1917.
Our alumni is not as large as that of most schools. The first graduating class was in
1919 when 13 members were graduated.
A regular meeting of the alumni is held on either the Friday or Saturday following the
dismissal of the school in May. The usual fee of twenty-five cents is charged. This money
is usell for letters, invitations. and the like needed for the club. The last meeting was held
May 51928 at. the Braceville Auditorium. At that time there were about 90 members who
were Aon the roll.
Throughout the year the alumni have parties. dances and dinners for their benefit..
Amongithe honorable graduates who have distinquished themselves are: Mildred and
Marvelle Philips, who are nurses in Lakeside Hospital. Cleveland. Ross Shaffer, with his
athletic activities in a college in Massachusetts. Claude Graber, with his athletic work at
P. T. A.

80 members. The officers are: President Mrs. Ferguson, Vice President, Mr. V an Orsdel,

Three years ago Braceville organized a boys and a girls glee club. They were composed
of all the pupils of the high school.
Several concerts and musicals have been given in the three years. which have proven
very successful. Last fall the clubs sang several selections at the high school musical and
for three years they have comprised the choruses for the opperettas.
Miss Elizabeth Butler of Warren was supervisor last year and until November of thls
year when Miss Helen Portz also of Warren came to take her place.
Each year the girls learn several classical selections with soprano and alto harmony.
The boys develop numbers that require bass and tenor combinations.
We have given two very successful high school operettas and are now making prepara-
tions for the third one.
"The Riddle of Isis," an Egyptian operetta, was given two years ago. Last year UT he
Gypsy Bover" was presented. Both operettas received much favorable comment, and
aroused a love of musical drama in and out of school.
The operetta to be given this year is '6Once in a Blue Moon". It is under the direction
of Miss Helen Portz and promises to be equally as good as the others. The cast has been
selected largely from the Senior Class.

Braceville High School Athletic Association was organized in 1927. Membership is
open to the upper six grades upon payment of annual dues. Each member has one vote in
all elections. Regular meetings are held once a month. '
The officers are choosen from the upper classmen and managers and assistant managers
are elected to aid the coach in directing various teams.
Athletics are financed by the management of the Association. Our Athletic Association
s the cornerstone and controlling factor of Athletics in Braceville High School.
Baseball has always aroused much interest in Braceville High School. During the last
few years the boys have produced some fine winning teams. In '26 our team won the County
Championship cup. In '27 they won every game but lost to Fowler in the tournament..
Again in '28, under the expert. coaching of Mr. Boss, their record was equally as good, but
by a close score they lost to Howland in the Semi-Finals.
The players of the team were greatly supported by their fellow-classmen. The spirit
was always loyal and enthusiastic. The contests will-remain in our minds and we will
remember what our boys accomplished for Braceville High School.
As we glance back over the .Athletic record of Braceville High we can see some fine
records of the teams. Braceville teams have won three of the County Championship cups.
One in '23, '24, and '26.
This year the girls had a very good-season. They won most of their games. At the
county Tournament the girls finally lost to Leavittsburg.
Members of the class of '29 have furnished many players for the team. Next year they
will be keenly missed, yet. from the under class men, we are sure, a new team will be a win-
ner for Braceville High School.
Boys and girls basketball affords the main winter activity that we support. In former
years the boys have been very successful, but this year because of vario-s accidents and
sickness. our team was horken up. J
During Christmas vacation. Fred Engler, our first team guard cracked his wrist. and
was unable to play for several weeks. Sometime after that "Bud" Crabbs sprained his
ankle and was forced to be an "onlooker" for a while. Charles Gintert was out of school
over three weeks with illness. y '
But even with all of these handicaps our boys have worked loyally for Braceville and
have never lost their spirit. .
F School Paper
This year marks the starting of a new project, a school paper, for Braceville. It is
called the "Pied and White".
Our paper is published by the Sophomore English Class and is supervised by the
English teacher. This year there were six numbers published. The price of each copy is
five cents. We exchange papers with Hubbard, Newton Talls, Warren G. Harding, Kent,
Chalker High and Bay Village. -
Senior Class History
When our class became members of Braceville High School we numbered twenty-eight.
During that year two girls and a boy moved away: Delores Nattres. Sadie Evans. and
James Bancroft. Besides these we also lost Edith Shaffer, Alida Herr-who left to go to
work-Ruth Kistler, now Mrs. Eugene Osborne, and Thelma Pleuss, now Mrs. William
By the time our Sophomore year had come to a close the class numbered only eighteen
Eleanor Barker had become Mrs. Park Turner and Ozie Belle Starling was Mrs Charles
Yancy. Bertha Kovacs who is now attending school in Cleveland, was unable to remain
in school on account of illness, and Aletha Wayne entered business. Our class had received
one new member. Franklin Hiland. from Champion.
The first day of our Junior school year added a new member to the class. Bernice
Treash whom we lost again at the end of the year when she moved to Canton. Eva Fen-
stermaker completed High School in three years and graduated in 1928. So only seventeen
were left for the personnel of the Senior Class of '29.
This year brought us two new members and lost us one. Hazel Gautschi came from
Cortland and Clarence Craver entered the Senior class from the Sophomore by doing
summer work. We lost Helen Lozier when she became Mrs. Claire Sutton.
Instead of finding ourselves all in one class again next year we willbe in diverse places.
Franklin Hiland considers aviation.
Clarence Fullwiler is also attracted towards aviation.
Cecil Hall aspires to be a civil engineer.
Genevieve Hitchcock is a prospective surgical nurse.
Edith Hitchcock wants to be a Librarian.
Edith Lozier has decided that nursing shall be her goal.

History of Brookfield School
In common with most Ohio rural communi-
ties of more than a century ago, BrookHeld's
youth had its first Contact with learning in a
log house on Big Yankee Creek. This was in
1807, and for a number of years, education
seemed to occupy a meager part of people,s
thoughts---according to the available historical
ln the early years, the township was divided
into thirteen school districts and one-room
schools were built in them. The township
trustees functioned as the Board of Educa-
tion. A three-month term was the length of
the school year and this was held in the win-
ter, when children could be spared from the
homes. A longer term was out of the ques-
tiong the taxes did not permit it.
Log walls, slab seats, and windows of oiled
paper-such were the appointments of these
early structures. Later on they grew more
elaborate and real lumber was used through-
These schools were mainly under their own
direction: the teachers had their own course
of study, there was strong discipline, and al-
most aitotal lack of supervision. Like lchabod
Crane, the teacher was obliged to board with
various parents. Many of the teachers were
"imported" from the eastern sections.
The first real school boards originated
shortly after the Civil War, because of a new
law which provided for the election of school
boards separately from the trustees. Three
men were elected in each of the thirteen dis-
tricts, and they were the first and last word of
law for the particular school which they
Within a short time this plan changed to
one by which each district elected one member
to a township board which elected its own
president and clerk. This was later changed
to the present method of electing the school
board at the regular township election.

Sometime near 1900 congestion, not hereto-
fore experienced, developed in the schools of
the eastern side of the township, and this
necessitated the building of a frame structure
on Brookfield Avenue in 1904. Only four
years later, a similar one of brick veneer was
built between Masury and Slope. These, of
course, permitted the abandonment of two
Although centralization was in the minds
of citizens, the nature of the several centers
of population of the township made this out
of the question and undesirable. However, the
newer popularity of education had fastened
itself upon the ambitions of many persons for
some time and the opportunities of the Box-
well and Patterson examinations did make the
establishment of a centralized high school de-
sirable- Accordingly, in 1911-1912, a four-
room brick school of one story was construct-
ed at Brookfield Center for housing the high
school and some grade pupils.
School expenses and population both stead-
ily and rapidly advanced, and four years after
the opening of the high school, new rooms be-
came necessary. Through political involv-
ment, the building of the high school was de-
layed until the midst of the war and the ad-
vance in prices made necessarymany economies
and slashing of plans. After completion and
installation of equipment, a first grade charter
was granted in 1918.
Enlarging the Masury building was the next
improvement. John Steveson loaned money
to the Board of Education for its construction
as well as donating money for additional rooms,
cement walks and grading of lawns. The
high school museum is also his gift.
Further crowding made necessary the addi-
tion of the high school, and condemning of
the Brookfield Avenue building resulted in the
new Addison School. Later, a new building
was necessary at Masury and it was named in
honor of Mr. Steveson. Portables were con-
structed from time to time and the latest de-
velopment is the new Curtis building in the
northeast corner. Q

The girls' basket ball team opened its sched-
ule with Farmington as an opponent on Cham-
pion's floor September 21, with fair prospects
for a good season. When Edna Moore, a
Senior, who was a star guard during her fresh-
man and sophomore years, but who did not
come out for the team during her junior year,
decided to wear the purple and gold once more.
optimism for a successful season ran high.
Up to mid-season the girls had lost just one
game and this by the small margin of two
points. At this time the team was weakened
considerably by the loss to the squad of rose
Spisak, one of Champion's stellar guards, who
was forced to withdraw on account of parental
The team reached the peak of form on No-
vember 9, when they played Bloomfield on
Blomfield's floor, winning 29 to 19. Bloom-
field was doped to Win and Bloomfield fans
wanted to bet 10 to 1 that their girls would
cop, but Champion was keyed to Win, so the
dope was upset-that's all.
Following this game the team went into a
slump, dropping two out of four starts.
When the season opens next fall the team
will miss the services of Edna Moore and
Emma Zaugg on account of graduation. But
notwithstanding this loss the prospects for a
successful season next year are very good. The
chief reason for this optimism is, the caliber
of this year's B squad which was one of the
strongest ever developed at Champion. They
were successful in 7 out of 8 starts, losing the
eighth by a margin of one point.

The boys' basketball team opened its season
at home on December 6, with a decisive vic-
tory over Meccag score S1 to 21.
On January 4, the boys went to Mineral
Ridge to play. This was during holiday sea-
son, and theicoach and some of the players
were not present, and some of the boys had
been Working hard all day so the team was
not in condition to play. The boys lost by a
score of 25 to 29. '
We lost our second game on January 25, to
Lordstown on their floor. This seemed due
mostly to a slump. The boys could roll the
ball over the hoop, around the hoop, but could
not roll it through. We lost by two points,
score 25 to 27.
Up to the present time the boys have lost
games by 11 total of 6 points, and outscored
their opponents by more than 100 points.
We are very optimistic about next season,
though we lose one man Qand a good onej,
Frank Kolar, through graduation. The boys
have had a very successful season, disregarding
the fact that the coach and the boys did not
get together until time for the season to start,
and some of he boys did not get out until late.
The B squad has a standing of betting than
700, so we feel that next season should be a
better season than the present one.

Betty Hause sat before the Egyptain with wide-open eyes. Something like fear lurked
in their depths as she gazed in awe at this majestic person before whom a crystal was placed.
'iYou want to know all your past and future school life, do you not?" As he said this,
the Egyptain moved his hand over the surface of the crystal with a slow circular motion.
Something about his movements reminded Betty very much of an eel.
"Yes, sir" Betty's meek little voice was almost a whisper. '
"In your freshman year," began the Egyptain, looking into the crystal, "your class

Due to the congestion of the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, the School Board, acting
upon the advice of County Superintendent Berg, secured another teacher, Mrs. Mary K.

upper grades. The pupils have become adjusted to the new system and it has received

Various programs have been given during the year. Thanksgiving was celebrated by

As Farmington High School has in it only fifteen boys this year, she has very little
material from which to build athletic teams. Due to the lack of keen interest in baseball
and trouble in procuring a suitable practice field, baseball was discontinued and a start in
football courageously attempted. Pants, shoulder pads, and head gears, were purchased
by the athletic association. The boys furnished the rest of their outfits. One game was
played with Garrettsville early in November. The boys are rearing to go for next year.
Brookfield, Newton Falls, Leavittsburg, McDonald, Cortland, and Liberty have offered
us dates on their schedules for next year.

Again this year Mr. Henry Scheig was our instrumental music instructor. Under his
able direction our band and orchestra have matle noticeable progress during the year. The
entire orchestra on several occasions has appeared before the Parent-Teachers Association
and both orchestra and band rendered selections for the Farmington Farmers' Institute.

Material for basketball this year was very poor for both girls' and boys' teams, but
prospects are very bright and encouraging for next year. Due to the teaching of basketball
fundamentals in physical education work. a number of girls have overcome their inferiority

Christmas Party l
A rather unusual plan for celebrating th:
Christmas season was tried in Fowler Town-
ship this last holiday season. The party was
planned and financed in such a way as to
make it a real expression of community in-
terest. The Booster Club and the churches
each gave liberally, the remainder being sub-
scribed by individual families.
The party was held in the school gym-
nasium, Friday night, December the twenty-
lirst at eight o'clock. The program was in
charge of the grade teachers. Miss Maud
Card, Miss Carolyn Hartman, Mrs. Vinetta
Anderson and Mrs. Ruth Root, assisted by Miss
Josephine Couch at the piano. An operetta,
"One Christmas Eve," by Effa E. Preston.
Fowler Parent-Teacher Association
Fowler Township Parent-Teacher Associa-
tion was reorganized in a meeting held in the
school gymnasium Saturday evening, Novem-
ber the seventeenth, at eight o'clock. After
an enjoyable musical program by the high
school, officers for the new year were elected
Mrs. Lena Higgins, Presidentg Mr. Frank
Neal, Vice President, Miss Josephine Couch,
Secretary, Mrs. Clyde Granger, Treasurer.
A challenging talk was given by Mrs. Lane
of Mineral Ridge in which she spoke of the
possibilities in an active association and pre-
sented some sample projects for the Fowler
Association to undertake. Since her visit the
chapter has done some splended things,
namely: Sponsor the Christmas program, serve
hot soup twice a week to grade children, and
are intending to erect some play ground equip-
ment later in the spring. The attendance and
interest manifest in the association, is worthy
of mention and promises an even more fruit-
ful year next year.
The work which has and is being done by
the Domestic Science class of Fowler High
School, under the direction of Mrs. Ruth Root
is worthy of special mention. The first 'part
of last semester was devoted to the study of
fresh fruits and vegetables in season, the ways
of combining them for salads and canning.
Pastry, cakes, hot breads, a study of foods of
how they affect the body individually, meal
planning and arrangement and serving of the
table were a number of the classroom and
laboratory studies. A number of noon meals
were prepared and served entirely by the girls
during the semester. This semester the girls
are making oil-cloth pillows, trimmed with
felt a pliques and decorative stitching.
In addition to regular classroom duties,
Mrs. Root is supervising the making of soup
which is served twice a week.
Natural Training Department
The industrial arts department of the Fow-
ler School has two classes, each consisting of
18 pupils, and, due to the well arranged pro-
gram, each pupil has a ninety-minute'period
each day. '
W'e have several projects finished which the
pupils are very proud of, and have taken them
home where they can be of use. XVe also have
many projects under construction, such as,
buffets, writing desks, chest of drawers ,and
ladies' dressing tables.
The work shop is very small and crowded,
but well arranged, and it is equipped with
lathe, hand saw, rip saw, and jointer, all of
which aid in the projects, and give the pupils
experience with machines.

The school year of 1928 and 1929 is the
third year for the operation of the moving
picture projector in Fowler school. This ma-
chine has proved to be a great success from all
standpoints, being entirely self-supporting and
furnishing amusement and education for the
people of the community as well as the pupils.
Good pictures are presented about once a
week for the public, while Educational reels
are shown for the benefit of the pupils one
afternoon during the week.
In addition to our school work and among
our other outside activities, we of the seventh
and eighth grades have arranged a room library
for the members of our grades only. The
books were donated, or rather loaned, by the
pupils. The library includes ten volumes of
Orations, ten volumes of short stories, and
about a hundred volumes of fiction recom-
mended by our teacher.
Our library is operated entirely by the
The films are selected from the larger film
booking oflices and many of the recent pictures
have been shown in Fowler before they have
made their appearance in Youngstown or War-
ren. There is only on other school in the State
of Ohio which surpasses Fowler in the quality
of motion pictures.
XVe, of Fowler, are proud of our equipment
which is of the latest professional type, and
believe sincerely in the benefits of visual edu-
and Eight L
pupils and librarians are appointed for each day
of the week. The books are loaned for a
period of two weeks and a Hne of two cents a
day is charged if the books are not returned to
us in that time.
Our library has done much to help us learn
to enjoy reading, and has been a success as is
shown by the fact that about one-third of the
books are in constant circulation.

Gustavus Building and School Board
Gustavus township was centralized in 1897 and the school building, a wooden structure
for this township, the first centralized township in the state of Ohio, was built in 1898. This
building was replaced in 1928 by a fire-proof brick structure. The new building has twelve
home and recitations rooms, two rest rooms, library room, Office rooms, a large stage and
Auditorium with a seating capacity of five hundred. The building has all modern conven-
iences and we may rightly say Gustavus is proud of her School Building. A brass tablet in
the corridor bears the following inscription:

Heavily outscoring their opponents and go-
ing through the season without any losses,
Hartford High School baseball team won the
Trumbull County Baseball Championship.
After two weeks of practice the team was
ready for the hard schedule afforded by North-
ern Trumbull County schools.
The first game of the season at Johnson was
left as a tie in the eighth inning. This was
the only mar on the season's record, but Hart-
ford had a decided edge in the play-off which
ended in a 19-S victory.
To Coach Sechler must be handed the
laurels for developing a winning team. His
experience, advice and demand for thorough
practice was invaluable.
The three Irwin boys must receive the bulk
of the credit for the school's victories. Cap-
tain Dale Irwin's cool head, unexcelled pitch-
ing, great hitting power and base running
pulled the team safely past the opponents' ral-
lies. "Ken" Irwin on the receiving end was
always behind Dale's weird shoots and at bat,
weilded a mighty bludgeon. "Bill" Irwin was
a venerable wall at shortstop and was a mighty
crafty batter and runner.
"Lefty" Johnson at first base certainly
could scoop in the ball with his lanky left arm.
He was also a dangerous batter.
"Joey" Sabol played second base like a vet-
eran. He could never be rattled at the bag or
at the plate. He nailed many base stealers.
"Bobbie" Edwards played a good game at
third and came through at the bat when runs
Carl Chilson was the "Ty Cobb" of the out-
field. He could run backwards faster than
most of us could run forwards and he certainly
did hit the ball.
Keith Miles, a dependable outfielder, was
the opposing pitcher's jinx. When Keith was
at bat, the pitcher couldn't locate the plate,
so he generally reached the first base via the
"Ossie" Johnson, outfielder, could be de-
pended upon to be parked under flies in his
territory. 'iOssie" hit when hits were needed.

"Joey" Sabol, Junior, was a clever man on

Jack Wlodarsky, Junior, amazed the fans by
his ability to outguess his opponents when

"Ken" Irwin is another player who will be
lost to us next year. With his experience and
ability to fill any position, he has brought us
out of many tight places. He played a great
game as a running guard this year.

The Howland Board of Education
The men pictured above give generously of their
time, talent, and energy that Howland's schools may
keep pace with the times. They perform their part
with an earnestness of purpose, a clearness of vision
and a strength of character that make them an out-
standing Board of Education.
A multitude of problems force themselves upon every
Board of Education but few people realize the com-
plexity of these varying problems. Few realize the
demands made upon the time and patience of Board
members everywhere. But many people are coming more
and more to understand that the school systems of
this country have never been in better hands than they
Howland has always been fortunate in the character
of the members she has selected. The present Board
of Education constitutes a progressive, efficient and un-
selhsh group. They deserve the gratitude and appreci-
ation of ar progressive community for their unselfish
service in the best interests of the Howland Schools.

The standards of the school are high :is evidenced by
the merit which has been obvious in demonstrations
of school work, comparisons in competitive contests
with other schools, and reports of State and North
Central Association inspectors.
Co-operation has been the keynote of the Howland
system and the results speak for themselves. This
year's work has been a particularly pleasant one which
faculty members may well view with satisfaction.

A great stride was made in the forensic activities of
Ohio by the formation of the Ohio High School De-
bating League in 1927. We are proud of the fact that
Howland was one of the first ten schools in the State
of Ohio to become a member of that league and to
maintain continuous membership to the present time.
One who has never debated cannot know the hard
work or time involved in preparation, nor appreciate the
inestimable value of such training. Howland has always
been represented by well-informed and well-prepared
debaters, having reached the final round in county de-
bate eliminations for the last four years. Prospects for
a good team next year are bright and Howland is again
going to hammer at the door of the CountyChampion-

It is a great honor to get to the final round in any
county elimination, but it is an especial honor to reach
that point in Trumbull County because of the size,
because of the progressiveness, and because of the edu-

fights its way to the top in a Trumbull County elimi-
nation may rest assured that it has won its way over
competition that ranks with any in the State of Ohio.
Howland is glad to pay its respects to the represen-
tatives named in this article. They are worthy of
HoWland's best traditions. NWC are proud of them.

he gradually worked himself to the top. Arnold,

squad. The loss of Ratliff evidently took some of
the spirit out of the team, for up to that time they
had been going well. A great deal of credit should be

The girls basket ball team has completed another
victorious season. Every team encountered has gone
down to decisive defeat at the hands of the Orange and
Black sexter. For the second successive year, the county
championship was won and the completion of the sea-
son made a record of 44 successive games in which the
Howland girls have participated without a defeat since
the fall of 1927.
This string of 44 games includes four victories over
the nationally famous Struthers team and four over
Warren, both Class A schools. The Hrs: victory over
Warren last year was particularly noteworthy inasmuch
as Warreii had previohsly Won 22 straight games and
the newspapers were claiming it was the best team that
everrrepresented Warren High. The outcome was never
in doubt, Howland winning -H-33 on the W'arren floor.
This 'year the two decisive victories over Struthers
were the outstanding victories of the year. In these
two games Howland displayed a vicious offensive and
and almost impregnable defense which easily routed
Struthers, although the latter won all the rest of the
games on its schedule.
These victories over all county opponents and the
defeats of Struthers, generally conceded to be the

uMusic is the universal language of mankind," said
the American poet, Longfcllowg and the incomparable
English "Bard of Avon," never put truer words in the
mouth of a character than when he had Lorenzo say:
"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds
Is fit for treason, stratagems and spoils."
Music is one of the best investments any community
can make, for nothing unites the best in all people as
does music. If you are able to give or to receive
pleasure through music, you get much out of life which
others miss. In Howland, Mrs. Daisy Currie and Mr.
Roger W. Coe direct the vocal and instrumental music
programs respectively. Their influence reaches far be-
yond the four walls of the school building and helps
greatly in making Howland a better community.
The Kinsman Carnegie Library, located on
a little hill in the center of the village, was
erected in 1913.
Years ago Mr. Frank Banning, now deceased,
started a free public library in the central
school building. Books and magazines were
contributed and a commendable start made.
Then came the offer of Mr. Carnegie, who
erected the building at a cost of seven thousand
dollars. Mr. Banning contributed six thous-
and dollars for furnishings. Other donors fur-
nished two thousand dollars worth of fine pic-

What are pals? David and Jonathan were
pals. Cain and Abel were not. A barefoot
boy and his dog may be pals, but Dempsey and
Tunney are not. Examples, both noted and
more familiar, indicate this as a peculiar rela-
tionship. What is it?
A similarity of likes and dislikes is one char-
acteristic. A common ground is found in
music, reading, sports, and other activities,
and probably more than one. They like the
same people and detest the same books. In
any activity a pal knows the feelings of an-
Mutual respect, admiration of good qualities,
and not the respect which is connected with
fear, as found in a state of strict discipline, is
one of the solid foundations of real comrade-
ship. One pal will admire the abilities of an-
other, such as an unusual ability in some school
study, for he knows that will be used, not to
the detriment of a pal, but to his advantage
Service is the real basis of comradeship. Pals
rejoice in the good fortune of each other-
never does envy enter the relationship. If
necessary service takes an active form-as
foregoing pleasures or even suffering pain for
the benefit of a real pal.
This relationship is a true case of brotherly
love, which, if extended the world over, would
bring about the relationship taught and urged
by the teachings of Christ.

Our high school days are days of greatest
happiness, interspersed with days of discourage-
ment and despair. There are days when we find
not a care in the world, and laugh and frolic
together. Also there are days when it seems
that the future holds only darkness, a dark-
ness so forbidding and devoid of hope that we
fear to enter. Always we are helped cheerfully
through both pleasure and darkness. By
whom? Our Pals.
Our class is as a big family co-ope'rating for
the happiness of each classmate. We are all
pals. In our happy days we cast our cares
to the winds nd enjoy ourselves coasting and
skating in the winter or picknicking and tak-
ing pleasure trips in the summer. nI our days
of unhappiness there are always Pals to help
us. When we become discouraged at being
put on fouls in a basketball game, a blunder
in delivering a debate speech, a calling down
from our teachers for neglecting our lessons,
or when our literary programs were failures,
and other disapopintments, there are always
dur Pals to give us a cheerful slap on the back,
or call to us a few words which make us for-
get our troubles and to join in the fun. Our
teachers are great Pals in times of distress.
Their minds are further advanced and they
willingly give assistance. They also help to
plan and enjoy our pleasures.-
Teachers and student body, we have Worked
and played together as -.Pals. Teachers and
young men and women, may we emerge into
the business world, never forgetting our old
pals, but always acquiring new ones.

Kinsman schools are equipped with a cen-

in every room. Each room of all buildings is
wired to the set located in the superintendent's
office. It is thus possible to supply radio pro-
grams to each room separately or to all at the
During the noon hour our children eat their
lunches to the accompaniment of radio music.
Music is thus provided, too, while educational
motion pictures are being shown.

group of children in the entire system make use
of these splendid programs.

An "Old King Tut's Tomb" that stands on the hill,

But how nice it seems though shattered inside.
A Winding path that leads to the gym,
A lone little robin still singing its hymn,
The distant hum of our busy town's noise,
But silent are all the girls and boys.
Again the children rush and shout,
At the beginning of day they are all about.
Soon they dart and dive into their room
To recite a lesson that began too soon.
The teacher looks from "Mick" to "Gene,"
And asks, "Just what have you in your bean?"
He never answers until it's too late,
And she says it's just too useless to wait.
A baketball team, movie, the radio too-
When a poor kid don't know what they're gonna do-
Soon the old bell rings, and the kids at once flee.
Gee, but aint'cha glad to be free?

The Twentieth Century and Ciceronian So-
cieties are literary organizations of the Jr. and
Sr. High Schools which meet in Library Hall
every six weeks. The aims of these societies
are to broaden the minds of its membersg to
discover and bring out new and hidden talent,
as well as to encourage talent already discover-
edg to overcome the self-consciousness of the
average high school student and to prepare
him for future undertakingsg for diversion of
students and teachers from the daily routine
of school life. Then, too, we wish to please
and entertain the members of our community
who are interested in our school activities. tl
is the sincere wish of the graduating class that
their respective societies may continue to up-
hold the standards maintained in the past.

The Liberty School Building was erected in
1922 at an original cost of S175,000. In 1926
an addition of six rooms was built making
twenty-seven rooms in the entire building. The
combined auditorium and gymnasium has a
seating capacity of six hundred. The play
ground and athletic field contains six acres.
Liberty High School dates back to 1903
when it received a third grade charter. It was
made a second grade high school in 1917, and
in March, 1924, it was charted as a high
school of the Hrst grade.
There are sixty-six pupils in Liberty High
School. Our total enrollment is four hun-
dred seventy-five. Eighteen teachers are em-
ployed in this school. '
XVe have two general aims in our school
work. First, we aim to give our Pupils a
practical education. Vocational training is
emphasized for we are surrounded by urban
communities. Our second aim is to train the
youth of our township the importance of be-
coming good citizens so they may help make
this world a better place in which to live.
Liberty School Busses
The Liberty Township Board of Education
purchased last September four Dodge-Graham
school busses with McKay bodies.
The pupils are transported to school and re-
turn safely, promptly, and economically. Both
teachers and patrons of the school are pleased
with this eiiicient transportation system.
A report of our transportation costs for Sep-
tember, October, November and December of
this school year as compared with the cost dur-
ing the same months last year when the busses
were privately owned may be of interest to
During the first fourmonths of this school
year 54,464 pupils were handled, 1,567 gal-
lons of gasoline were usedg 18 gallons of oil, 8
gallons of alcohol, 10,401 miles were traveled
with an average of 6.6 miles per gallon of gaso-
line. The total expense was S2,073.27, which
is ia little less than four cents per pupil each
day. Transportation for 15 or 25 less pupils
per day for the same four months for last year
was 54,753.80 ,or 32,680.53 more than the ex-
expense this year. This difference will more
than pay the cost of one of the new busses.

History of School
The first school districts in Lordstown Township were laid out in 1828, but the first school was not
opened until six years later. This first school was a small log building located at the center. The teacher
received the princely salary of four dollars per month, three dollars to be paid in cash and one to be paid in
farm products. 4
In 1840 a new frame building replacfed the log structure, and Prev. King was secured to teach a select
school. From this time u11t.il the present Lordstown has been exceedingly blessed with preacher teachers.
With a few exceptions all the teachers and later principals and superintendents were ministers, or became
In 1838 the old Eden Academy was organized by the Rev. Samual Deford. This institution continued
until 1870 during which period some of the foremost educators of the state were turned out. In 1870 the
building was sold and the school discontinued.
In In 1875 the Lordstown Education Society was formed. This organization purposed to engage
teachers for a graded school, and to pay them, from its own t-reasurery, the amount necessary to employ
competent teachers, in addition to the amount allowed by the township, This was the beginning of the present
highschool at Lordstown. ' -
In 1905 the school was chartered as a third grade high school, and in 1913 a second grade charter was
obtained. Three years later, the new building was completed, which, at the time was the finest in the county-
A first grade charter was obtained in 1919.
Since centralization of the schools, the following superintendents have served at Lordstown. A. L.
Bascom, Rev. Partz, B. R. Jones, and W. E. Melvin. Mr. Melvin is now serving his third year in the position.

Evansville School History
During the last half century, many changes
have taken place in the school conditions of
the Evansville District, all of which have had
a trend toward better educational advantages,
and have proved a great benefit to the entire
About 1840 a very modest, frame, one-room
school house was erected at the crossroads, just
east of the present school building. Primitive
in every detail, this little center of learning
served adequately, the children of that time.
In 1875 the increase in population made it
necessary to erect a more spacious building.
The School Board composed of three mem-
bers, sold the original building.
The new building was used until it was de-
stroyed by fire in 191 S. During the remainder
of the school year, the Leslie Avenue School
in Niles, served as shelter for the Evansville
children. The teacher was Miss Bertha
Stephens, who is now known as Mrs. Bertha
Breeze, of Mineral Ridge.
At this time, Weatshersneld Township, of
which Evansville is ri part, had twelve one-
room school buildings. When it was neces-
sary to replace the one that was destroyed, it
was decided by the school board to centralize
the schools. Mineral Ridge became a Corpor-
ation, and McKinley Heights and Evansville
were made Centralized Schools.
A two-room brick building was erected at
Evansville, which was used until 1924, when
the increased enrollment demanded more room.
At this time four rooms were added to the

sociation, consisting of one hundred and' ten

Senior Class History
On September 8, 1925, nineteen strong we
entered our Freshman year in high school. We
were the second class to enter this high school
and it made us feel quite important.
The following year only thirteen entered
the Sophomore class. Five, girls and one boy
were on the basketball teams and we all took
part in other school activities.
The Junior year only nine enrolled. We
elected oflicers with Hyacinth Walton as presi-
dent. This year three girls and one boy were
on the basketball team, several boys were on
the football squad and both boys and girls rep-
resented us on the literary teams and student
This year there are eight of us remaining to
Hnish our course. Two boys and two girls are
on the basketball team, and three of the boys
are on the football team.

Senior Class Prophecy
It was a bright, sunshiny day in August,
1950, when we landed in Paris on the first
lap of our journey around the world.
We were walking along the crowded thor-
oughfare of Lafayette Avenue when we bump-
ed into a policeman. Upon looking the second
time it proved to be our old friend, Russell
Lewis. After chatting awhile and discussing
old times he told us we would find our class-
mate, Fred Chittock at the airdrome. We
boarded an omnibus for the air-field. When
we got there we found that Fred was one of
the leading aviator's of France.
Jrourneying on we arrived in Germany.
That evening we went to the opera and whom
should we- see, but Gladys White, whp was
delightfully entertaining the audience with her
Leaving this country, we journeyed to
Venice, Italy. The first place we went was
to one of the famous sculptor's studios. On
entering the studio we were delightfully sur-
prised to see professor Shook who was modell-
ing the bust of the Prince of Wales.
After leaving Professor Shook, we went to
the American Consulate. There We were re-
ceived by the wife of the Consul who proved
to be Ruth Williamson. She was gaining much
prominence as a public speaker and charity
As our sojourn in Europe. was over, we
boarded the Columbia for America. 'On ar-
riving in New York we went to visit the city
schools. On talking to the superintendent of
schools, to our amazement we learned he was
our old school mate Donald Rudge. ,J

Glee Clubs 1928-1929
The Newton High Glee Club have a large
membership this year. The boys' Glee Club
is now at its height having a membership of
sixty-three. The Girls' Glee Club is slightly
smaller, totaling sixty-one members.
The Glee Clubs present varied types of pro-
grams, arranged to please the most widely as-
sorted audiences. They range from humorous
to spiritual songs, from solos to the unison
chorus, singing of one hundred twenty-four
Vfithin its ranks it includes several very
capable soloists, an excellent quartet and a
pleasing select group.
The Glee Clubs appear frequently through-
out the year in assembly, in Parent-Teacher
meetings, and once each year they present an
operetta, which up to the present has been
more than successful and has even greater
expectations for the future. This year's oper-
etta will be "Miss Cherryblossomf' a delight-
ful Japanese musical.
There is an added incentive for every mem-
ber to do his best because honest effort to im-
prove the music of Newton High is rewarded
by a beautiful pin. For loyalty and good
work a silver pin is awardedg for long service
and good work, a gold pin, and exceptional
work in addition to real talent receives a gold
pin set with a pearl. g
The Glee Clubs are above average this year.
They are daily improving under the very able
leadership of Miss Nelle Davis, our eiiicient
and accomplished music instructor.
Newton High is the pround possessor of two
orchestrasg a Senior High and a Junior High
group. Wfhen the two play together they
give the 'appearance of a small symphony. The
orchestras are well balanced having an as-
sorted group of both stringed and wind in-
struments. The instruments include clarinets,
flutes, cornets, mellophones, slide trombones,
baritones, tubas, violins, violas, oboes, 'cellos
and a base viol. A number of these are owned
by the school, and these are! loaned to promis-
ing students. Lessonsiare given every Friday
by a visiting instructor. N b
The Senior orchestra, the most advanced
group, plays varied types of selections of the
better class, which it renders in a manner most
excellent for a group of high school students.
It is the duty of the orchestra to play in
,chapel weekly, to appear in public when rc-
quested and to aid in a more thorough appreci-
ation of the better type of music.
The success of the orchestra is due to the
untiring ,efforts of the cgpable directoress, Miss
Nelle Davis. W t . . V
Last year the production of "Hamlet" was
the best play the club has thus far produced.
"The Family Upstairs," the Hrst to be given
this year, was the last of the season. Early
this spring the Junior class gave a successful
production, "Captain Apple Jackf' Further
plans are being made for a Senior play the re-
turns of which will be used for a Senior num-
ber of the "Hi-Life."
A Dramatics Club of Newton High is a
phenomenon of the last three years. The club
produces two plays yearly. The present dra-
matics instructor, Mr. Heasley, has taken
graduate work in this line at Columbia Uni-
versity. Stage productions of the High School
are staged according to the best rules of dra-
matics. Not only stage speaking, butialso
stage presence, stage action and stage manage-
mentare studied -by the-club. The appreci-
ation-of'-'good plays is stressed.
The Student Council of our high school is
at the head of the "police departmentf' which
helps to regulate hall traHic. It has been in
progress for only a year. Last year the Merit
System was used, 'and and the Council also
took charge of this. The Council is made up
of one representative from each class and two
from ,the Senior class. A Senior is the presi-
dent. L. It helps to give the students more in-
terestin school and it brings a co-operation
between the teachers and the students in a
way which makes the students think, they are
helping to "run" things too. Leon Brown, a
Senior, is this year's president.
55' A The Hi-Life
The Hi-Life, Newton High's student pub-
licatidn, is now in its second year of edition.
The Hi-Life began as a small sized, four-page
paperf' published twice monthly. The present
edition is twice the original size but still a
four-page paper, and published but once a
month. lt is hoped that in the years to come,
as Newton High increases in size the Hi-Life
may increase too, becoming an eight-page copy
and being published weekly. The Hi-Life has
a great future! ' .
The Hi-Life contains student and alumni
news, athletic, dramatic, social, class, and per-
sonal newsg a featured principal's paragraph
and editorials, original literary works, as
stories, poems and essays besides many miscel-
The annual presentation of the high school
operettas for the past number of years has
been a thing of interest to the people of the
county as a whole. The elaborate display of
costumes as well as the mastered presentation
of character ,parts under direction of Miss
Davis are lasting recollections of the operettas
including "XVindmills of Holland," "The Tore-
adors," "Pickles," "The Crimson Star," etc.
The Glee Clubs have furnished wonderful
talent for such productions and as much in-
terest is shown in this phase of school work as
in any literary or athletic event. Our operetta
for this year is "Cherryblossom," and since
this is a type different than any before pre-
sented here, great interest is being shown in it.
Solos, duets, quartets, choruses, blended with
beautiful costumes and witty conversations,
feature this operetta which will be held April
8 in the local auditorium.
Debate is one of the most outstanding ex-
tracurricular activities that makes for clear
thinking and constructive reasoning on the
part of the pupil. The county question for
debate during 1929 season is: "Resolved, that
the United States should cease to protect, by
force of arms, capital invested in foreign
lands, except after formal declaration of war."
As the annual goes to press the teams are pro-
gressing rapidly with Miss Adams as coach
of the aflirmative team and Mr. Heasley in
charge of the negative team. Let us hope that
next year will find more interested, that this
will help to give due honor and prestige to
Newton High in debate.
Aflirmative Team: Helen Hojman fCapiainj
Negative Team: Chester Hurd QCaptainj
The outstanding event of the social program
of our high school is the annual Junior-Senior
Banquet. It is the custom for the Junior
Class to entertain the Seniors at dinner, fol-
lowed by a dance. The favors, programs, and
entertainment are carried out by a certain
scheme which varies from year to year, last
year it being in the form of a play called "The
Lamentable Tragedy of the 1928 Junior-
Senior Banquet." The synopsis consisted of
the prologue and three acts-the menu, and
The Junior Class of ,29 are giving a play,
"Captain Apple Jack" to defray the expenses
of the Banquet. A committee made up of
Margaret Van Winkle, Anna Financial, Max
Neidhart and German Flick have chosen a
Chinese theme to be used in the Junior Ban-
quet of 1929. This idea is especially appropri-
ate since the operetta to be given this year is
"Miss Cherry Blossom."
Newton Falls High School football team
completed a very successful season, by win-
ning 8 out of 11 games and by securing T. I.
The team did not hit their stride until after
the first three games, completing the season
with eight straight victories. Brookfield was
the only team in the T. I. A. that offered New-
ton Falls any real opposition.
Coach Glass was fortunate in having seven

letter men and plenty of good raw material
with which to build a team. That he suc-
ceeded in putting out a good team can readily
be seen by its record. Newton Falls scored
250 points to their opponents' 73.
However, next year the team will be hard
hit by graduation, six regulars graduating. But
there is plenty of good material to draw from,
and Coach -Glass should have no trouble in
putting out a winning team.

the team work and the spirit among the boys
is good. The team this season is centered

History of Chalker High School
Chalker High School was a gift to the people of Southington from Newton Chalker
of Akron, a native of the township and a descendant of one of the families which came
here from Connecticut in 1805. It was erected in 1906.
The building is a two story structure of bluff brick with stone oopings and stands on
high ground facing south, a few rods west of the center, on Parkman road. The front is
supported by large pillars. Two impressive lions guard the steps to the entrance.
On the first floor are the tiled-floor entrance hall and superintendent's office and three
recitation rooms. The large assembly room and high school library, most of the books
of which were also a gift of Mr. Chalker, are on the second floor. In the basement are the
manual training and domestic science rooms, and a large room which is equipped for serving
luncheons or banquets with a complete supply of linen and dishes.
On the front lawn Mr. Chalker had placed two cannons and a soldier's monument to
commemorate the soldiers from Southington who fought in the Civil War. Mr. Chalker
was one of those who went. '
CHALKER DRAMATIC CLUB
The Chalker Dramatic Club was organ-
ized at the beginning of this year. The

y 'A Prizes in T. I. A. Literary Contests
Chalker entered the County Short Story and Declamation Contest in the year 1921.
Chalker at that time was a second grade High School, and did not have the enrollment of
the other schoolswith whom, we competed. In the contests we have won prizes in both
events. ' In., one year Lillian Case received third prize for her very original story, "White
C1'OSS6S,,,gHfI1d Sarah Fanning won first prize in the declamation contest. Last year Clair
Worley Brought to Chalker the gold medal for first prize in the short story contest. We
shall enter both events again this year. '
Forensic -discussion at Chalker is more recent. VVe entered the County Debating
Contest in 1928. Our adversary was Champion who greeted us heartily. The negative
team consisting of Donald Leiby, Lottie Veits, Vera V eits, and Olive Mercer, won: but

Mesopotamia Band is a Prize Winner
Three times the Mesopotamia School Band has
walked off with first prize in as many all-county band
Contests. It is the holder of the Silver Cup presented
by Stewart Music Hall. Mesopotamia is the proud
owner of the Trophy which cannot be won by any
other school band.
After its second Championship Mesopotamia erected
a band stand in the village park in honor of its players.
The Band was organized under the supervision and
instruction of Prof. Simpkins. During that year it
was composed of about twenty-five members. At thc
first county tournament held on the Kinsman Fair
Grounds, May 12, 1925, it was awarded the first prize
and keeping of the loving cup presented by the Stewart
Music Hall for one year.
During 1925-1926 the Band was directed and in-
structed by Mr. Bernard Moore under the supervision
of Assistant County Supt. Simpkins.
By this time the Band numbered about thirty-two
members. A number of concerts were given during this
year and again the Band was awarded first place at the
Annual Tournament. this time scoring six points higher
than the iirst year it won.
Four of its members, Wilbur Frenncnh, tuba playerg
Richard Amos, baritone playerg Marbin Price, cornet
playerg Charles Amos, clarinet player, were selected
to play in the State Band of three hundred boys dur-
ing the State Fair in Columbus, August 31 to Septem-
ber 4, 1927.

county with an enrollment of 162 students, Mesopo-
tamia can proudly boast of having 36 students in its

Mesopotamia is indeed fortunate in having such an
active Parent-Teachers' Association. The parents and
teachers try to work together toward the best interests
of the children, the school and the Community.

The present Orangeville Village School Buildingwas built in the summer of 1875. This new building
was a vast improvement over the old having a second story and accomodating more children. It was classed
as a Special School. The smaller children were taught n the room down stairs, and upon ability to master
the Fourth Reader were permitted to join the upstairs group. There was no such thing as report cards or
promotions, as now. One began in the fall where he left off in the spring before.
The winter term of 1875 found Mrs. May Brockway Wade instructing the little ones, and Mr. W. W.
Kennedy as principal. As high as seventy-five pupils occupied each room at a time. Among these older ones
were E. U. Hyde, Ed. Wade,John Morrison, Walter McFarland, A. W. Thompson, Nahum Holcomb, Nettie
Williams, Anna Storer, Flora Powers, and Ella Powers.
The course of study depended entirely upon the teacher. At this time, Reading Writing, Spelling, were
required. Advanced Arit.hmetic, Algebra, Bookkeeping, Philosophy, and Chemistry were electives. Grades
in Spelling were taken and kept.
Board Members have served faithfully, well, and long. Mr. A. W. Thompson has twenty-four years to
his credit as also had Mr. John Morrison, father of present member R. P. Morrison.

Years ago each member received S10 per year for his services, now, it is given free gratis.
Mr. E. C. Boyd served as teacher of the four uppergrades and two years High School for several year s.
For one period of three years, there were three teachers in the building, due to the fact that the High School
students had to go to some other high school for their other two years, and, that the requirements increased,
it was deemed advisable to discontinue the High School, and send all students to some nearby school where
all higher requirements were maintained. This done in 1920. The school has gradually grown smaller every
year. The enrollment for the present year is 41, and as follows: Charles Victor, Loretta Chamberlain, Albert

Literary Societies have given very good programs Friday afternoons. Music instruction is given once
each week by Mr. Wm. Niskanen. The boys have a baseball team that has seldom seen defeat. Our school
won second prize at the Fair Exhibit last year.
Miss Alda Holcomb teaches the first five grades. She received her education at- Orangeville, Vernon
and Kent State. .This is her second year in the field of education.
Mrs. Hazel Thompson teaches the sixth, seventh, and eightth grades. This is her third year at Orangeville.

The Johnston High School Alumni Association has had twenty-One meetings, the first one being
in 1906. These gatherings are held in the form of a banquet, business meeting, and a short program,
providing a social time for the reunion of old friendships. 1
In this room a great many wonderful events
have been staged. We look back and find
where a Literary Society was organized, to
show the patrons of Johnston School the
talent that was being produced here. The
society program consisted of songs, recitations,
debates, etc., and were held in the room pic-
tured above. The first program was opened
by a recitation given by Clair Cassidy.
There were several exciting debates staged
here, one in particular, in which Gladwin
Wfoodworth and Jesse Bascom, became real en-
thusiastic, so much so that the paper on which
it was written was nearly destroyed.
Cn january Sth, 1907, a piano was bought
this caused as much excitement as a call from
Lindy would today.

listed below eleven made their debut into the
career of supt. life in this room. .

Johnston High School .Athletics -
With the exception of a few odd years,
Johnston High School has been always very
prominent in Athletic fcircles in the county.
Before 1911, the high school had been quite
prominent in baseball but had not done much
in Held and traclf or basket ball or football.
In thei spring of 19.12, Johnston high athletes
broke into the limelight by winning the field
and track meet hel don the Kinsman Fair
Grounds. This was when the association was
known as The North Eastern Trumbull
County Athletic Association. The stars of this
meet, were Leonard Crawford, '12, and Alton
Cram, '13, Jesse Bascom, '23, and Paul Sad-
dler, 'L4. This same groul with the addition
of Horace Cram, '14, andPRonald Hine, '13,
made up the famous basket ball team of 1911-
12 and 1912-13. This team could not ind
high school teams strong enough to play them
and had to play professional and semi-profes-
sional teams and Y. M. C. A. teams from
Cleveland and Youngstown. This spirit
- ' 'Win
. THE OLD GYM '
prompted the building of a basket ball hall
to replace the old stone building that served
for a year. In the fall of 1912, B. W. Crellin
was superintendent and W. B. Treloar was
principal. This was the year that the boys
decided to build a gymnasium. Logs were cut
in the woods, hauled to the saw mill, and
then with the help of Lee Sadler, and Archer
Cram and many other ardent athletic boosters,
the work was begun by the boys, and the old
gymnasium was erected. This was a big un-
dertaking and some ready money was needed
to carry on the work so stock in the build-
ing was sold at one dollar per share. These
shares were purchased by those interested, and
by January lst the building was ready for
business. It would be impossible to describe
the enthusiasm that prevailed that year or the
years that followed., Thousands have seen
games there, over 500 people crowded into the
hall in the winter of 1913 to see the boys
from the Cleveland Y. M. C. A. High School
go down to defeat at the hands of the Johns-
ton High boys. Scores were unable to get
into the hall to see this game and had to go
away. There were no good roads in those days
and many had driven for 10 or 15 miles with
horse and buggy to:see it.
The Fall of 1,913 Johnston had its only
football team. Q
Q For a number of years following this, ath-
letics were very successful until again in 1917,
the girls were county champs, in 1918 :both
boys and girls carried off the honors in county
basket ball. The girls' team having been un-
defeated for three years. - After the war
period of 1918, 'NVQ B. Treloar came back to
Johnston as Superintendent, and A. W. Grigg,
of Greenville, Illinois, came as Principal and
Coach. By this time the old gymnasium was
almost in discard but was still used. Under
the coaching of Mr. Grigg in 1920, the boys
basket ball team only .lost one game out of
20, and that was at the first county basket
ball tournament held at Niles. This loss was
due to sickness on the part of two of the
prominent players, but 'it was enough to lose
the championship. The field meet was a close
race that year and the girls were the deciding
factor in Cortland, winning by a close margin.
In 1921 under Mr. Grigg, the boys won the
County Basket Ball Tournament, played in
the finals against Struthers to lose the Dis-
trict Tournament at Alliance by a close scorei
and in May, Johnston won the track and field
meet by a big margin., In 1922, -Johnston
again won the track and field. The girls also
won the county basket ball tournament which
was held at Leavittsburg. In 1926 Johnston
won the baseball title. f
Sinceg 1923 Johnston several times has reach-
ed the semi-finals but have. won no championl
ship. The last few years-have seen the old
historic gymnasium falliinto disuse. New
schools and new gymnasiums have sprung into
existence all over the county, and 1929 also
means the passing of the old and sturdy school
and elementary building to make way for a
much needed new one. '

History of Vernon School
The early educational facilities of Vernon,
like most other townships consisted of district
schools. Of these there were seven and two
so-called "fractional" districts where the
schools wer' managed jointly with other town-
ships. ' K
' Some of these district schools were of un-
usual merit for their kind and numbered
among their teachers men and women now
noted in the county, state, and nation.
Clarence Darrow, when a mere youth, taught
several terms at School No. 3, and was famous
as a debater even in those early days of his
career. Judge W'illiam Carter taught two
terms in the district known as the Beach Dis-
The schools were consolidated and central-
ized in 1901. The new building being located
at the center, and organized as a High School
of the third grade.
The first superintendent of the Centralized
School was C. C. Rankin. In 1914 the original
building was destroyed by fire and replaced by
the present building of fire-proof construction.
After the new building was completed the
school was reorganized as a high school of the
first grade, in 1915. Amongi the early super-
intendents of the building were M. M. Dray,
now a teacher of history at Warren G. Hard-
ing High School, Warren, Ohio, Mr. A. L.
Bascom, present superintendent at Leavitts-
burgg Mr. I. E.,Boetticher, former County
Superintendent, and G. H. Birrell, prosecuting
attorney of Trumbull Co.
In 1924 the voters of the township approved
a bond issue for the purpose of enlarging and
equipping the school plant. The new part
includes two recitation rooms, large sanitary
toilet rooms and a combined gymnasium and
Each year new equipment is being added.
Last year a motion picture machine was pur-
chased, also a fine electrically driven lathe for
manual training. At present the school has
adequate equipment for manual and domestic
arts with a light spacious room for each.
Vernon High School displays a fine school
spirit, and encourages many extra curricular
activities, namely, basketball, both girls and
boys, music, a boys' glee club and a girls' glee
club, orchestra, operettas, etc., dramatics, de-
bates and literary contests.
The trend of education in Vernon has al-
ways been in the direction of progress and we
hope the future of the school may live up to
the standard set by its past history.

1870 1915 p
There has been nothing very unusual in the century and a quarter of history of Vienna
School. Records indicate that the first school was organized in 1805. As in most townships
the one room building was traditional for some time. The first one room building to be
replaced was at the center district when the two-story structure shown above was built
about 1870. A few years previous to this, however, saw the termination of the academy
which seems to have been quite an institution for ,its time.
Quite a number of one room buildings continued to flourish throughout the township
until 1915 when early in the year the voters of the township voted for centralization and
then a new brick building was constructed at Vienna center. The school was then reorgani-
zed, including in its reorganization a high school. The two room building has been vacated
since 1915 except during the last two years when it has been used as an emergency because
of increase in enrollment. It was last vacated Dec. 21, 1928.

The second semester found us occupying the new building. The new rooms with the
new furnit.ure that occupied them gave a new impetus to school work. A special feature
was the new Gymnasium which has been appreciated by the community in general as well
as by the parents and pupils of the township. The earnest and untiring efforts of an inter-
ested Board of Education are recognized in this connection.
Iuniors and Seniors
The members of the senior class are: Edwin Dray, Pres., Elizabeth Kopervac, Vice Pres.
Dorothy Loomis, Sec'y. Treas., ,Virginia Dray, and Kathryn McQuaid.
The Juniors elected the following officersnlames Frost, Pres., Esther Lee, Vice Pres.,
Russel Hull, Sec'y. Treas. Other members of the class are Dwight'Scott, Ruth Londeck,
Xxilgler flibson, Robert Colton, Russell Sutton, Robert Smith, Vincent Hoffman, Mary

I. F. Mathews
Mr. Mathews has some distinction that few teachers of Trumbull Co. can claim. He
was born in Liberty Township July 30, 1872 and moved to Vienna Township 1901. He
received a common school education in the local schools. He began teaching at the age of
17 although he held an elementary teachers certificate at the age of 14. He has taught in
Vienna Township Schools since 1910 and has taught longer in Trumbull County than any
other teacher now teaching. He was admitted to the Bar of the State of Ohio in 1911,
however, he never parcticed. Although being an old teacher in years of service his aggres-
sive spirit and habit of professional reading has kept him abreast of the times.

It is common law that it takes eleven men
to play the game of football, but many authori-
ties state that it takes at least twenty-two men
to make a team come through one thousand
per cent. Leavittsburg's 1928 football squad
consisting of thirteen men came through with
a seven hundred per cent. season. With this
fact in mind Leavitsburg has everygreason to
feel proud of the showing of her boys and
their eflicient coach. l - A
At such an early date, predictions for next
year are rather hazardous due to the loss of five
of the outstanding players through graduation,
but the outlook is far from discouraging. The
coaching staff wishes 'to commend the five
graduates, Captain W. Fowler, K. Weant, J.
Savelle, J. Gams and H. Weir upon their
super playing and fine football spirit through-
out the season. Space alone prohibits the
writer from giving Worthy praise to every
member thatmay come ltheir way concerning
their record on the xfootball team. 1 A

Girls' Basketball Team, 1928-29
The girls' basketball season has been decid-
edly successful. It lacked excitement until we
entered the tournament. We were not a
seeded team but old determination took a hand
here and we won from Kinsman, a seeded
team, 36-27. McDonald, our next opponent
was vanquished in an exciting overtime game,
25-20. Braceville then fell victim to Leavitts-
burgls on-rush, 36-13. In the semi-finals we
drew Brookfield, a strong team, but our
"never-say-die spirit" made the game ours by
the close score of 23-22. Howland proved
victorious by six points in the Hnal game, and
thus ended the tournament, but not our sea-
Our post season games took us into a class
of larger and stronger schools, but we thrived
on competition. At Lisbon, after a sliding
good time, we returned with -a 33-18 victory.
We defeated the Warren Normal girls 36-14.
The highly touted Salem girls gave us a scare,
but we hnally located the basket and won,
29-28, and in the closing game of the '28-'29
season Leavittsburg again bet Salem by the de-
cisive score of 24-8. '
We were especially pleased when Irene
Franciscon and Katherine Gams were named
on the all-county team and Gertrude McKeown
received honorable mention. To these we ex-
tend our congratulations.
Irene Franciscon, forward, was small but
dangerous. Page, forward, tall and speedy, al-
ways came through in the pinches. Lillian
played forward or guard wherever we needed
her. "Leave it to Bill." Gertrude, heady and
aggressive, was center and captain. Mary and
Gertrude, both small but dependable, and
Katherine, our little track flash, ,filled the
guard position. Georgia, Anna, and Georgiana,
our reserves, could always be counted on in
an emergency. Myrtle Remalia, manager, de-
served much credit for her efficient work. And
lastly, we would express our appreciation to
Coach Mildred Smail-Shaffer, whose efforts
have made this the most brilliant girls' season
in the history of our school.
