Dick, who has been a faithful member of this Board since 1911, retired this year and R. H. Gates was elected to complete the Board of five members. Mrs. A. B.

After class organization, we resumed our perusing of books and unprepared lessons to find after two weeks that those magic vistas of education meant hard toil, while those rosy promises of good times were daily augmented. To prove that the first hundred years are the hardest, but sixty-five of our number were left after the method of deduc- tion employed by that body which moves in a strange and mysterious way its wonders to perform-the Faculty. Frances Stull successfully piloted our Educational Ship thru the Soph- omore Seas fc'sJ. ' "Survival of the fittest," still being tenaciously clung to by "Ye Faculte", returned to elect Richard Bolard president of only a half a hundred and seven, and to endeavor to find a good source of income to entertain the "400"-the Seniors at our J unior-Senior Banquet and "Prom", to find a goodly num- ber to represent us in athletics and clubs and to undertake our first Sarah Bernhardt production-"The Mystery of Haddon Hall." In '26 forty-three of us determined to end it all in this year, returned to dusty schoolbooks and depleted funds. Inspired to acquire an added bump of intelligence by a class trip to our National Capitol, Washington, and just for fun, to have the President-Huburt Buel meet a real President, we sponsored the ne'er-to-be-forgotten "Breaking Winnie," our second at- tempt in high Q 'D art, and "The Academy High Girls' Chorus and Boys' Glee Club," from which a neat sum was realized. Another play is to be given after which it is hoped the early summer will see us on our way to Washington after We have left the Commencement platform to the strains of Tosti's "Goodbye Forever." "Through the four long years of high school Learn to labor and to wait- Foznthrough struggling ever onward Comes reward both small and great!"

Soon it puffed into the station. We hastily bade goodbye to Childhood and climbed merrily aboard, ready to begin our four years' journey along the tracks of Knowledge. Feeling rather important, we elected Charles Brown as Chief Engineer. Charles led us a very merry ,chase through parties and other memorable events, such as the Wiener roast at w.hich Frank Harris was host. The second year of our journey found only fifty of the original number returning to be labeled Sophomores. An atmosphere of superiority and sophistication prevailing, we chose Joseph Mclnerney to engineer throughout the period. We proved to be ex- ceptionally peppy in athletics and social activities. 1When the third year of our trip arrived, only forty-eight of us received the appella- tion of Juniors, two more having either fallen off or having voluntarily abandoned us before we could reach our destination of Education. Giving the girls some chance to see what they could do, we chose F'anneil Shreve as Chief Engineer, George Ma-llick as Fireman, Mary Stark as Brakeman, and Charles Brown as Conductor. Under their safe and sane guidance we expect to make a great success of the Prom and Banquet to be given for the Seniors, and also of the carnival to be held in the City Hall in May.

We had lbeen told that we were to be initiated into the wonders of High School by the upperlclassmen but their bark was worse than their ls-ite and We soon found that High School was not such a had place after all. After we had sufficiently overcome our greenness we held a class-meeting and elected John Bennett ihigh cockalorum. We also chose our class colors-green and white. We broke into society with a corn roast. The upper classmen tried to 'break up our plans but, as upper classmen often do, they did not succeed. We next gave a party in the City Hall which was enjoyed by all the High School. Our officers safely steered us through the tracks of our first year in High School and we met vacation hoping that our next year would be as successful and satisfactory. We were then "Freshies" .but now are Sophomores 'and we too can turn up our noses even if it is only to the Freshmen. We are informed that we are one of the peppiest cl-asses that Dear Old Union has ever had and if all will pardon us we .think so too. We are very well represented in athletics both in basket ball and football and we have also kept our interest in the various social diversions. The number of Sophomore names on the Honor Roll proves that our class is not lacking in ability. ' So, fellow classmates, let us continue as we have 'begun and "Protect Our Good Name!"

STEPHEN BENNETT "Where, O where, are the verdant green freshmen?" is a query that might well be made :by any stranger visiting Union High. Where, indeed? On entering either Room nine or Room twelve, you may see a group of industrious young people with grave, in- telligent faces. Surely they cannot :be mere freshmen! VVhy, you might even take them for sophomores except for the serious expression on their faces. . This industrious class of ninety-two met soon after its entrance into high school and elected its pilots for the first and most perilous voyage, and also 'chose its class colors, old-rose and white. The class soon made its debut into social life holding a corn roast in Wheeler's Woods, which seemed to have as great an attraction for the upper classmen as for the freshmen. In fact, some sophomores and even, we fear, a few dignified f?J seniors were so anxious to get there that they waded through swamps and trainped through brambles, but even then they were not rewarded for their trials. They wrathfully stood and watched the heartless freshmen consume the luscious hot-dogs, corn, and marshmellows. It is impossible, of course, to prophesy the future of the class of nineteen hundred twenty-nine, but if we may judge by the change which it has effected already in the old school, we may safely say it will be no dull or commonplace career!

The football season of '25 was not the success of previous seasons but our boys certainly played good football in every game. Coaches Brooks and Jones are due much credit for their services to the team. Mr. Hudson deserves much credit for his able supervision and interest in the team. Next season Union High should have a team to be proud of with such players as Mclner- ney, Van Tassel, Cooper, iVilson, Hadlock, Dewey, Doane, Hnlings, Mallick, Brown in the lineup. NVith the ending of this year's season, Union is losing some of the best players she ever turned out. New players will take the place of Emerson, Palmer, Davis, Baumbach and Nason. After a season of continued defeats, it might seem to some that our athletic out- look for the future, so far as football is con- cerned, is rather gloomy, and undoubtedly many are somewhat skeptical after the dis- appointments of the past season. However, we must all bear in mind the fact that our athletics are young: . that our student body is comparatively small and the squad pro- portionate: that our opponents in most cases were more seasoned and have played to- gether for two or three years: and finally that a majority of our boys, who gave their time to represent our School, were inexperi- enced and insufficiently trained to compete with the other Schools. Notwithstanding these odds, our team has fought doggedly and with all its losses has won the good will of the schools that it has encountered and deserves only credit and praise for its persistent efforts. ""'-5lllCnx43lIIE-0"" The Meadville Game at Meadville On September 26, after two long weeks of grinding, Union City opened her season by taking the team of green, untried men on an experience trip to Meadville. This game was the beginning of a series of defeats with one exception, which try as it would our team could not overcome. Altho the score was a, tragedy yet the boys made a long stride in finding themselves and in cement- ing the unity of their team work. Further- more, they established a reputation for good sportsmanship which can be envied by any school striving for the best in the game. Union has signed a contract for a game this year and are receiving a. higher guarantee. The Conneaut Game at Conneaut The following week our team journeyed to Conneaut, to play the Conneaut Consolidated School. The team displayed a. much better brand of football than in the opening game, but could not stop the Conneaut backfleld, who gained consistently and pushed the ball over the goal line three times. The Corry Game at Corry For the third game of the season the team went to Corry where it encountered its an- cient rival, Corry High School, The team played real football the first half of the game, but unable to shake off the "jinx", our team had what appeared for a time to be its first victory turned to another de- feat. Corry scored two touchdowns in the last three minutes which Won the game for them 12 to 2. The Cathedral Prep Game at Union The first home game and one of the big games of the season with the Cathedral Preps of Erie, was played in a veritable sea of mud. The student body, from the side lines, in the role of loyal rooters, gave all the support possible to the team, which it was seeing in action for the first time. The team seemed to feel the spirit of the student body and fought harder than ever before for a. victory, but the heavier "Prep" team dnal- ly added another defeat to our list with a score of 6 to 0. The Cambridge Springs Game at Cambridge At Cambridge Springs, Union met defeat after a hard fought game. At no time dur- ing the game was it possible to tell which team would be the ultimate winner, and only in the last quarter did our opponents break away, scoring the only touchdown of -the game, but failing to make the try for point. The Corry Game at Union City Our next game was played at home on a field of mud and water. The big features 'of the game were, when every once in a while Emerson or Palmer would be seen flying into a. puddle of mud and water, with four or five Corry players piled on top of them. Union worked the ball down the field within two yards of the goal line but lacked the punch to put it over. The game ended with the score 6 to 0 against us. The Titusvllle Game at Tltusville A 33 to 0 score on a, foreign field in six inches of mud and a drenching rain certain- ly indicates that Union was outclassed. The eligibility list hit our squad hard for we had only five of the first team to start the game. Union was handicapped by the loss of her men but she retained her fighting spirit and kept at it till the last whistle. The American Legion Game at Union City Armistice Day the Legion played the High School. The Legion was a. combination of Alumni and A.merican Legion players. The gridiron was covered with mud. Union's team work was loo much for the Legion which without practice was easily tired out. Dewey and Hadlock scored the first touchdown of the year, with the first victory 14-0. The Albion Game at Albion Union entered this game with a determina- tion to get revenge for last year's defeat. The first quarter the teams fought evenly, but in the second quarter Emerson passed to Hadlock, who raced to within two yards of the goal line and on the next play Palmer went over the line for our touchdown. Albion scored her points in the last quarter tielng the game. The Cambridge Springs Game at Union After the defeat at Cambridge we were naturally all on tiptoes to make a. better showing in the return game. Our opponents had strengthened their team since we had played them before. Emerson plowed through their line time after time for a touchdown. The last half Cambridge came back into the game with a different spirit and Youngs caught one of our passes, crossed Our goal line and tied the score. The Albion Game at Unlon City In the last game of the season Union met a very determined opponent in Albion, The lines of both teams were like a stone wall. It was not a matter of scoreless quarters but of minutes of tense, inch by inch, fight and grind. The game was of necessity slow, es- pecially in the last quarter when time had to be called after every play to clear the mud out of one or another pla,yer's eyes. At no time during the game was the ball nearer than twenty yards from either goal line. One likes to speculate on the possibilities of a dry field.

Eall t The Basket Ball season of 1925-26 was a most successful one considering the fact that we were handicapped by having only two of last year's team back in school. . We were able to keep out of debt by having a tag day, which also provided money for a boys' and girls' Basketball Coach. This was the iirst year Union High ever had a paid Coach. Our greatest triumphs were two victories from Corry and the winning of the City ,championship from the Eastmans. West Millcreek, the County champion, succeeded in defeating our team by only four points, North East defeated us by nine points. Next year the prospects are very bright, as the second team has had more experience than those of previous, years and should therefore develop a winning aggregation. 'We wish to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Steves for donating his car on all our Basketball trips. This aided us considerably in a. financial way. We also wish to thank anyone else who has aided us in any way to help make this year's season a success.

At the beginning of each year, in order to obtain members, a contest is held between the classes. The first two classes to get 100'Z, membership are the winners, and must be entertained by the losers. This year the Freshmen and Juniors were the lucky ones. They were given an evening full of joy and fun on Hallowe'en by the Sophomores and Seniors. Many queer specimens were seen strolling around the hall and everyone was gay. A unique entertainment was given. Boxes were passed, and each person took a paper vegetable from it. All persons having the same vegetable were put into a group. The groups were stationed at intervals around the hall and each group was to do a little stunt. Some were funny while others were solemn. Then one from each group was chosen to enter a doughnut-on-a-string eating contest. Jack Lyons won and received a sack of peanuts to feed his group. Later a lunch was served and a march was held that all mightbe seen in order to choose the boy and girl having the best costumes. Martha Chapman, dressed as an organ grinder, received the girls' award, and Mike Bem, representing a mule, the boys' prize. The Bartholme Boys furnished music for all who wished to dance. Everyone spent a delightful evening and approved of the Seniors and Sophomores as entertainers. This year for the iirst time, a Student Council was appointed which had charge oi athletics throughout the year. The officers of the council were: President, Harold Baumbachg Vice-president, Noma Doddsg Secretary, Harold Nasong and Treasurer, Ted Crowe. 'Tlherei were also three members from each class: Harold Nason, Harold Baumbach, and Viola Frei, Seniorsg Ted Crowe, Raymond Stager, and Noma Dodds, Juniorsg Charles Marlowe, Marshall Wilson, and Kat-he-rine France, 'Sophomoresg and Raymond Fitzgerald, Paul Lyons, and Frederick Kelley, Freshmen. There were, also, two faculty members, Dr. Davis and Mr. Hudson. The manager of football, Charles Browng manager of girls' basketball, Ruth Caslerg and manager of boys' basketball, Donald Hadlock concluded the list. At the iirstx meeting, the by-laws or rules for the association were drawn up and other important business discussed, such as how to get money to pay the coaches. A tag-day was held and the town was lcanvassed. As an incentive to selling tags, the pair of boys collecting the most money received bronze pins with a boy's figure on itg This plan was a success and sufficient funds were obtained to secure the excellent services of Mr. Rich of Corry for the boys and of Mfrs. Hudson of this -city for the girls. Both teams progressed rapidly and displayed some fine 'basketball playing throughout the year. One of our local business men, Mr. Roy Mulkie, sponsored a contest between the teams of the city. The boys" hig-h school team were voted most popular and received a. basketball. The most .popular 'boy on the team, Harold Baumbach, was given a sweater, and Joseph Mclnerney, who was second, received a pair of tennis shoes. The most popular tgirl on the team, Winifred Marlowe, also received a sweater and Viola Frei, who was second, was given a tennis racquet. The boy and girl who were chosen third, Harold Brooks and Autumn Obert, were each awarded a gold basketball charm. Mr. Mulkie should be highly praised for Ihis services in aiding our athletics. The Gymnasium classes, held in the Eastman hall, were something Union City had never before known. Mrs. Hudson gave ther time to the physical training of all the high school girls who cared to join the class. The classes were held two times a week from 4:00 to -5:00 oiclock. The boys were trained by Mr. Rich, the basketball coach. The association has proved a success and has been improved every year. Mistakes, Of C0111'S9, have been made, but H0t'hi11g can 'be .perfect and the mistakes must be found to make it so. In the years to come the school may profit by these, we hope, and grow better every day. Page forty-Eve l l4 l Y f l is 1926 ' THE ANVIL -:- 1926 p with Gllnh Early in the fall of 1926 the Union City High School Bird Club was reorganized, with thirty-eight members. Our Club is associated with the National Audibon Societies, from whom We receive our literature, books and emblems. Our boys and girls are very enthusiastic friends of our native birds, many of us providing feeding stations during the stormy weather of winter. Our study of birds was followed under the following subdivisions, General Work of Birds, Birds of the Air and Leaves, Birds that Work on Bark, Birds that Destroy Weeds, Song Birdsg Inj urious Birdsg and General Classification of Birds. We have made a more or less careful study of the appearance, habits, benefit or injury of about thirty native species of birds and have been especially impressed with the great amount of benefit and little injury that birds actually do us. We are determined that as far as we are concerned Birds must be protected. About March first we started our contest in the making of Bird-houses. A large number of very fine Bird-houses were submitted by the members and the judges were somewhat at a loss in awarding the prizes, but finally decided as follows- Among the girls, First prize--Alafretta Thomas 3 Second prize-Mae Bradley, Third prize-Margaret Davis. Among the boys, First prize-Harvey Johnson, Second prize-Winston Rice, Third prize-John Cooper. We are all looking forward to our Spring Hikes and our Summer Va- cation, when we expect to learn much more of these feathered friends through watching them in their native haunts as they perform their tasks of homemaking. GNWKD illifle Glluh The High School Rifie Club, after three years of slow development and gradually losing membership, has again begun with a larger membership than ever before. The Club has had three shoots in the past year on the High School Range at Kamerer's Woods. With instructions from a few of the local marksmen we have learned many new points about shooting and have had a good time as well. We hope this organization will continue to grow and become an im- portant one in the School. President ......,..............,......,.. .......,....,......

As the procession, consisting of our faculty, the Board of Directors, Mayor East- man, and members of the Junior and Senior classes, entered the banqueting hall, all were delighted with the beauty of the decorations. Yellow and white, the Senior Class colors, predominated in the festoons, favors, floral pieces, and even throughout the menu. After the Invocation by Reverend C. S. Robertson, the following menu was served: Fruit cocktail, chicken patties, mashed potatoes, dutch cheese balls, rolls, but- terfly salad, saltines, ice -cream, cake, peanuts, mints and coffee. During the courses favorite songs were sung and afterwards the following program took place: "The Trials of a School Mistress," dialogue by Viola 'Frei and Ralph Obertg "Toast to 1925," Richard Bolardg "We Respond," Kenneth Root, "Our Boys Will Win To- night," song, all of usg "My Team Won," Francis Mulleng "The Best Team," Charles Still 5 "We Girls," Ruth Caslerg "What Did De1aware?" song, all of us 3 "Why We Have School," G. D. Eldredg "Au Revoir, but not Goodbye," H. H. Denison and, last but not least, the song "To the Old Guard," tendered to bhe dear teachers and friends soon to leave us. ' The success of the banquet was due to the efforts of the committee, consisting of: Marjorie Young, chairmang Jennie Wilson, Frances Stull, Reva Bunce, Pyrrha Burdick, Viola Frei, and Abbie Still. The work of the Prom committee-Donald Hadlock, chairman, Pauline Lockwood, Marjorie Siverling, and Richard Bolard-was likewise worthy of comment. The hall was beautifully decorated in purple and white festoons and archways, balloons, and multi- colored Japanese lanterns and floor lamps. The Olympians of Meadville furnished a delightful dance program of eighteen num- bers, in which King Jazz gave place to sweeter, softer strains, and music more worth while. , QIOID Glnmmrrrial Qllnh First meeting of the Commercial Club was held December 4, 1925. At this meeting the following officers were elected: President, Frances Stullg Vice-President, Hilda Sutter, Treasurer, Raymond Stagerg Secretary, Cecil Lewis. At the second meeting, January 3, 1926, the constitution was adopted and the fol- lowing committees were appointed: lProgram, Chairman, Hilda Sutterg Frank Whit- taker, Reva Bunce, Ralph Osborne, Viola Frei, Social, Chairman, Pauline Lockwoodg Marion Siegfried and Viola Frei. On March 23, 1926, a business and social meeting was held in the evening. An entertainment was given and Professor Hadlock and Dr. Davis honored us with informal talks as to how we might -better fit ourselves to be successful in business life. Miss Bernadine Plotzer is the founder of this organization and we sincerely hope that lher efforts have not been in vain.

This small company of young people, prepared to enter into the struggles and respon- sibilities of the Future, was thirty-one in number. The program began at 8 o'clock, music being furnished by the High School Orchestra. Isabelle Middleton, valedictorian and first speaker, delivered a very interesting oration on "Our National Cathedral." Milton Blakeslee chose for his subject "The Importance of Education," in which he emphasized the need of better educational facilities in Union City. "Present'Day Ten- dencies in Literature," by Margaret Hatch, was very interesting and well delivered. Frederick Reese gave a very fine oration on "A Rising or a Setting Sun" which was delivered in an excellent manner. Hazel Whee- lock chose for her subject "Music of Pennsylvania" in which she reviewed the lives of famous musicians of Pennsylvania. Kenneth Root, the last speaker and Class President, spoke on "The Boy Who Followed the Foot- steps of Benjamin Franklin." 2 Addresses were given by Prof. J. M. Palmer of Edinboro and Prof. H. H. Denison, after which the latter presented the diplomas. 2206? llbhr in Hninn The Ship of Life is in the harbor now, And on the shore the Class of Twenty-six Awaits its turn to climb on board, and though We long to feel the deck beneath our feet, Our memories linger on those happy days, When We assembled here at dear old High.

It turned out more success- fully than any previous corn roast held by the -Freshmen as the upper classmen were baffled in their attempt to defeat the plans of the class of 1929. . CLASS PARTIES Numerous class parties have been held throughout the year. Outstanding among them is the attempt of the Junior Class to raise money for the JuniorsSenior Banquet and Prom. FIRST SENIOR CLASS PLAY "Breaking Winnie" was the most successful play ever given by any class in High School. The characters were well chosen and all did their best to bring about its clever presentation. 'Dhis also resulted in a trip to North East where the play was again given to an appreciative audience. MUSICAL PROGRAM The Senior Class was instrumental in bringing a Girl's Chorus and Boys' Glee Club from Erie Academy High. This was presented for the benefit of the Senior Class trip to Washington. What fun to see our -Senior boys washing dishes that memorable night after the concert. TAG DAY A Tag Day was carried on by school cooperation for benefit of the Athletic Associa- tion. Funds from this aided the high school in securing equipment for the gymnasium and in making the season a. financial success. COMMERCIAL CLUB MEETING Although only one meeting was held by this Club it showed that it might by greater cooperation become an important organization in the High School. A thorough- ly good time was enjoyed by all who attended. RUMMAGE AND CANDY SALES Numerous such activities aided in securing money for the Washington Fund of the Senior Class. SECOND SENIOR CLASS 'PLAY ' "Why not, Jerry," completed the goal set by the Senior Class for the sum needed to go to Washington. DEDICATION OF ANVIL Miss Bernadine Plotzer received the dedication of our year book, The Anvil. This is the second time a teacher has received the honor, and the nrst time for a lady to receive it. JUNIOR CARNIVAL Among tfhe events of the year yet to come is a carnival, heralded by a parade, to be given by the Junior Class to secure funds for the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. C2060 Uhr Entvrtainment Glnmmitter This organization was formed to take some of the dryness out of chapel. It was composed of representatives elected from each class who met together to decide upon a program. There were wonderful results for the first two weeks, but afterwards everybody be- came so busy that chapel programs were forgotten in the mad rush for education. We hope that next year it will continue for at least three weeks or longer although it would be a very good thing to have this committee function throughout the year.

We hold these truths to -be self-evident, that all students are created equal, that they are endowed by the County Board of Education with certain inn-lienable rights: that among these are the Pursuit of Knowledge and of Happiness, that to secure these rights, school organizations, such as our famous Student Body, are instituted, deriving their just powers from the consent of the Facultyg that whenever any form of govern- ment becomes destructive to these ends, it is a right of the students to alter it or to withdraw from it and renounce all allegiance to its authority. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that a relationship long established should not be changed for light and tran- sient causesg and accordingly all experience shows students are more disposed to suf- fer while evils are to be suffered than to right themselves by severing the bonds to which they .have been accustomed. But when a school organization exerts all efforts to the pursuit of knowledge, forming it in many various waysg when it evinces a design to take away all happiness from our school days, it is the right of intelligent students- it is their duty-to throw off such tyranny and provide new guards for the future pres- ervation of their happiness. Such has been the case in this, the U. C. H. S. The his- tory of our class .has been one of absolute tyranny on the part of the teachers to develop the burden of knowledge almost beyond endurance. To prove this, let parts of our history be submitted to a candid world. They have deprived us of a. great part of our happiness by refusing us holidays, most wholesome and necessary for our welfare. ' They have effected to render the pursuit of knowledge independent of, and superior to, the pursuit of happiness. They have combined with others to 'subject us to severe rules of discipline foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws. We- have.stu.died ,English for three long years, we have read poems galore, and can quote readily from all the noted authors, and-most burdensome of all-we have been forced to Macbeth. We have studied Latin and French until we can conjugate almost any verb given us. In three years we have studied the history of the world from 98,075 B. C., to 1926 A. D., covering in all one hundred thousand years. in Algebra we 'have calcu-lated the time, when the hands of a clock are at right angleskwhen they are directly opposite and when the clock is bottom side upg but we have come to the conclusion that the best solution is when the hands are at an obtuse angle, fit is then 3:47, the -bell is ringing and school is over for another dayj. In Geometry we have found the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diam- eter. But .how can we compare a ,curved line with a straight one? And again, how can this driest relation of lines be suggestive of the juicy, delicious pie? We have drawn shorthand and pounded at the typewriter until our heads are swim- ming in letters and signs, and we have both w'riter's and typist's cramps. Our teachers have shown malice and lack of sympathy in teaching us each year that the teachings of previous years are wrong las if it were not hard enough to learn things oncelj A , In Physics, we learned that atoms are composed of -hundreds of particles. In Chemistry we learn that atoms are the smallest po1'tions into which matter is divided. The discovery ofj radio is said- to -be changing the whole .worldg now,. in, the light of this,,we have to complain that our teachers until a short time ago were ignorant of radio, or maliciously withheld the knowledge from us.

Some of the most progressive members of the class have repeated-ly tried to bring about spelling reformsg that is, they have attempted to introduce new and original ways of spelling old words.

A.n opportunity was afforded on the occasion of a christening. There was a considerable audience, made np of relatives, friends and neighbors of the parents. The preacher began by saying: "Vile have met together, my friends, on a very interesting occasion-the christen- ing of this little child-but I see already a look of disappointment on your faces.

Several of the girls under my author- ity liave fallen prey to my charms. Ac- cordingly it is ditlicult to preserve order as they occasionally Ibreak out in discord while they vie for my favors. What shall I do? A disheartened Professor. Dear Professor: I would advise a so-called Professor in such distressing straits to leave the teaching profession and to enter the the- atrical world where his charms will re- ceive their due credit fin the ticket of- iice. -Sympathetically yours, Aunt Jemima. ar ak Dear Aunt Jemima: I am a high school girl, and desirous of entering the social world. My one drawback consists of difficulties at the dinner table-one annoying circumstance being my inability to master such an un- thinkable dish as that of piping-hot, stringy, slippery Spaghetti. How is it done? Also, how can one remove freckles and learn the Charleston? Very Worried. Very Worried: In your social-climbing extreme diplom- acy will be necessitated in dealing with such an uncontrollable food as Spaghet- ti. First disentangle one long string from the mass and twine it gracefully around your forkg next, elevate slowly to avoid escape and hold poised directly above the mouth: then, grasping t-he loose end between the teeth which have been clenched for fear of the outcome, draw one deep breath, slowly unwinding the Spaghetti from the fork, simultaneously. If done correctly this should permit the easy descent of the Spaghetti. As for the freckles, sprinkle the wash- cloth plentiously with Dutch-Cleanser. Rub briskly over the face. This is guar- anteed to remove all traces of them. Imitate a person having the Saint Vitis Dance and you will be adjudged an ex- pert Oharlestoner. Lovingly yours, ' Aunt Jemima. QJQID LITERAL OBEDIENCE A young teacher who graduated from the normal school last June, was asked one day last week to substitute in a higher grade than her own. She was a little nervous over the temporary promotion, and was anxious that everything should go off in the usual good order. While instructing the class in composition, said: "Now children, don't attempt any flights of fancy. Don't try to imitate the things you have fheard, but just be yourselves and write what is really in you." As a result of this advice, one little fboy turned in the following composition: "I ain't goin' to attempt no flite of fancyg I'n1 just goin' to write what's in me, and I got a hart, a liver, two lungs, and some other things likethatg then I got a stum- mick, and it's got in it a pickle, a piece of pie, two sticks of peppermint candy, and my dinner."

Richard Bolard This play was presented by the Senior Class at the Star Theatre on, the afternoon of December 3 and the evenings of the 3d and 4th, Through the efforts of the Seniors, a large audience was entertained at all performances. Many were heard to say that this production, under the direction of Mr. Percy Clark, was the best ever given in Union City -by amateur performers. The scene opens in Boulder, a small country town in Vermont. Winnie, 'because of her sister's broken wrist, has taken over the latter's correspondence and has written ardent love letters to several men whom the writer has niet t-hrough 'iThe Lonely Hearters Correspondence Club." As a result of these inspiring missives, her suitors call on her. Winnie, being already engaged but intending to "put him off" as long as possible, begs Myra, Olga, and Alice to substitute for her. Many surprising situations are introduced but Hnally Arthur succeeds in "Breaking Winnie" and she -begs him to marry her. , The specialties were given by Amelia Tryon, Marjorie Siverling and Percy Clark. Miss 'Tryon was assisted by Mildred Cupples, Meredyth Turner, Pauline Lockwood, and Abbigail Still.

There were ninety-six of us when we entered, but owing to the extremely hard les- sons, etc., we, the original class, have lost forty-seven of our original number. ln every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have 'been answered only by increased injuries. VVe have 'been deprived, moreover, of our rightful morning chapel exercises, on the grounds that they .hinder us from several moments of much-needed study, and also through alleged pity for those who find it necessary to drape themselves along the walls. VVe have called our teachers' attention to the rights given us upon coming here, the right to pursue happiness as well as knowledge. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity in vain. We have laid before them the fact that they, them- selves, were once students like us, and asked them to allow us happiness' and ref-rain from forcing upon us the burden of knowledge. They deemed it their duty to refuse. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which decries our separation and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, as enemies in school, but friends without. f 5 Therefore, we, the Class of 1926, of the U. C. H. S., of the State of Pennsylvania, in common consultation, appealing to President Buell as a judge of the rectitude of our intentions, do solemnly announce and declare that the class of 1926 is, and of right ought to be, free and independentg that we are absolved from all allegiance to the school, and that all educational connection between us and the Faculty is, and must be, dissolvedg and that as a free and independent class, we should forever more devote our- selves to the pursuit of happiness. And, for the support of this Declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the enlightened world, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our honors, and our old text books.
