Wie, the Class of '28, hereby take pleasure in expressing our appreciation
of our friends and advisors, the members of the school board.
They have helped us in many ways. Oi these, the changing' of the type-
writing room and the installing of the new Univent Ventilators have been
the most appreciated.
VVe were very sorry to lose two of our board, Mrs. A. B. Treat and Mr.
G. D. Eldred. Mrs. Treat was the first woman president of the board. She
served us faithfully for several years. XYe want to thank her for all the
help she has given us. Mr. llldred also served at his post for eleven years
and in all that time did his best to help make our school a pleasanter place
in which to study.
And lastly we wish to welcome our new members. Mr. Duncombe and
Mr. Rouse, who we are sure have our best interests at heart.

r CAREFREE 425 DAYS
On September 6, 1924, the Class of '28, a band of ninety axvestricken
Freshies entered the portals of the Union City High School. Here they were
to toil for four long years. Thus it seemed then, but noxv that we are so near
the close of our vigil, we wish the years had not passed so quickly,
Wie soon learned that we had more than the required material for a
peppy class. At our first class meeting john Bennett was chosen to guard
us from the 1nany perils to be found on the road to the second milestone,
f y . . . i
"Sophomore" Our main social events for this year were a cornroast, the
lipworth League Banquet, and a dance.
ln our Sophomore year our class. having gained some much-needed
experience, began to Find considerable athletic material in our ranks, and
our members began to take noted places on the teams. Vve did not have
many social functions this year, but made ourselves known as 'fthen wide-
Junior year dawned with a noticed decrease in our ranksf And were
we busy! After great expenditure of effort, our play, 'ivvhen a Feller Needs
a Friend," proved to be a great success. Our banquet and prom for the
Seniors were novel, the prom being held in the pavillion at Canadohta Lake 1
instead of in the City Hall. By means of numerous rummage sales, the play,
and sales of delectable candy made by ourselves, we started our XVashington
Fund. l ,
Now we are Seniors. XVe are nearing the final milestone, and on it is
the word "Commencementf, This brings visions of precious diplomas and y
our class clad in caps and gowns. lYe have striven faithfully during our l
sojourn here. XYe have taken part in all activities, and the school is losing
many of her best athletes. And ever in front of us is our goal after gradua-
lLl0l'liX'V21Sl'llI1gtOI'l. By selling seeds and Christmas cards, and by giving
special programmes, we hope to attain this goal. VVe have enjoyed all our
'ovs and tribulations and the facultv has not failed to su J Jlv the latterl.

Three cheers for U. C. H. S., and may the Class of '28 keep her high ,V
Q9 ideals forever!

Gaze upon the likeness of this likeable young
man. Can you not see literary ability written there?
"Swede" is our walking library, for he certainly can
pick out good books. He likes to take his time
and does, but you're going to hear more about him
before long. Some say that Howdy is the wise
cracker in the Senior soup. Here's hoping he never
goes back to the bowl.

A large number of raw recruits entered the portals of U. C. H. S. on a
September morning in 1925 to begin a four year period of training. Donald
Burdick, as commander-in-chief. led us Victoriously through a skirmish with
the upper classinen, who ignominiously failed to capture the provender at our
wiener roast as their spoils of war.
ln our second term we were goaded on by our battle cry, "On to Wiash-
ington," into making well organized attacks to earn money.
This year we helped to keep up the morale of our troops by giving dances,
entertainments, and the play, "XYatch Your Step. XYilton.l' Our scholastic
and athletic prowess was youched for by the large number we had on our
Honor Roll and by the fact that the boys in our own legion won the Inter-
class Basketball Championship -Cup as their Croix de guerre.

Of a U. C. lligh GroupvSecond Year.
How lllS6liIy we entered in Twenty-six.
Wvith trembling heart. hut our minds Fixed,
And how we worked through Twenty-seven,
I Contented. and thinking 'twas "Seventh I'Ieax'en."
Un October 14, 1926, the great portals of learning were
thrown open to us. Although we were but "green I1'eshies." we
were of some importance. XYe held a class meeting. and I-larry
Smiley was elected president. while Lester Danner was elected
vice-president. Ilelen Morrow became our treasurer: Paul I'eard,
our secretary: and Neil Nelson. our historian. NYe chose yellow
and white for our class eolors. We had one celehration. which
turned out quite well.
In 1927 the great doors were again opened for us. and we
entered joyfully. This year lloris Nason was our presidentg
Lester Danner, vice-president: Helen Morrow. secretary: and
Thelma Kennedy. treasurer.
This year inter-class hasket hall started. XYe had splendid
teams of both boys and girls. The boys won most of their
games, hut the girls did far hetter. Two cups had heen offered.
one for the hoys. the other for the girls. The girls carried off the
cup given hy Miss I'orter, hy winning all of the six games they
played. NYC gave two dances hoth ol which turned out splendidly.

Hurrah! llurrah! liar out against the distant horizon, riding gallantly

good sbip "l2ducation,"
Nearer and nearer it comes! l,arger and larger it grows! Ah! There
upon the deck stands the strong. efficient crew who man this great vessel.
How eagerly they are wailing for the iirst sight of their shipmates. Their
very attitude now presents the assurance of their loyalty.
On the shore. walking to and fro in their anxiety, are eighty-four green
freshies. eager for an opportunity to board the ship and be off to explore their
high school careers. '
At last! The boat has docked and we. the class of 1931, are all aboard.
After we had received the cordial greetings of the crew, we were assigned
our duties in various parts of the ship and we were off.
Of course, we must have a leader: so we called the bunch together and,
combining our wisdom, chose Charles Lyons as captain and Martha Lock-
wood, a willing and competent worker. as first mate. On looking over the
company for an honest lad, we spied john Erskine and elected him as our
purser with lilaine Chapman as keeper of our log.
As we were floating out over the beautiful water and gazing at the great
expanse of blue sky above us, what else could we do but choose blue and
white as our colors? i
lYhat a pleasant voyage we were enjoying, when, alas, a few of our
number recklessly plunged overboard and disappeared in the depths forever.
However, though we grieved our loss, we must sail on, day by day,
month by month. until we have safely reached Port Commencement, regard-
less of the storms and difficulties which we must encounter en route.

THE 1927 FOOTBALL SEASON
On September 17 the local eleven went under tire for the first time when
they played the home town team. XYe had a number of green men. and Coach
Magill was anxious to see how each showed up in action. The backfield of
the opposing side failed to "carry through" except in one instance. when
they scored a six point lead.
The next Friday. September 23, the boys traveled to Meadville. where
the foe dragged the Maroon and XYhite in the dust to the tune of 540. and
worked general havoc with their well timed interference.
The Saturday following, October l. we went to Titusville resolved that
if we had to lose, Titusville would pay dearly for her victory. Vie lost with
a score of 43-O. but some consider tnis the hardest game of the season. Only
one backlielcl man played the entire game. and the team suffered a heavy loss
when Fisk received a broken ankle due to clipping from behind.
Fortune soon rolled the dice in our favor when on October 7 the Maroon
and XYhite crossed the goal line against lidinboro with a score of G-O when
the whistle blew. Some would probably say that our old jinx was with us.
as the game was played in mud and water.
On October l5 we played Girard again on our own field. The teams
struggled up and down the field. but were unable to find a loophole to vic-
tory. So ended this game, with one game wen and one tied.
The next Saturday the locals journeyed to XYesleyville. and there. on a
slightly rolling, sodded held, they went down to another defeat on account
of XYesleyville's heavy line attacks and their successful passing. The score
On October 29 we battled Youngsville on our home held for three quar-
ters of the game to a nothing to nothing tie. XYith three minutes to play
we were defending our goal on the thirty-yard line when the opposing back-
held broke through the left end and the ball carrier somehow dodged his way
to a touchdown. thus ending the game in a 6 0 loss.
On November 5 we again played at home. this time engaging in conffict
with the VVesleyville eleven. XYe put forth our best that day. for we wished
to redeem ourselves from the whipping we had received at XYesleyville, and
in one rally the team pushed down the field to a touchdown. XYe couldn't
gain more. however, and the game ended with a 20-If victory for XYesleyville.
The next Saturday we played Conneaut l,ake at home. The team was up
for a win, and when the whistle blew. the score was found to be l4-7 in our
Then came the big game of the season-the annual clash between Union
and her old rival, Corry. on November 19. The game was played on a held
marked out with stakes and coal dust because of snow. which covered it to
the depth of nearly a foot. Both teams struggled back and forth. seeking
frantically for some defect in the other's line, but to no avail. Neither team
came within twenty yards of the enemy's goal. but when the whistle blew,
we were advancing steadily up the held. XYho can tell what would have
been the result had there been two minutes to play?
But so ended the 1927 football schedule. with a record of two wins and
two ties, which was just twice as good a record as last seasons score.
We wish to take this opportunity. in behalf of the team, to thank the
members of the School Board for their generous co-operation. and also Klr.
Charles Still for his excellent referccing during the past season.

The l927-28 basket ball schedule started off with a snap when the team
came up against Erie Business College's fast-stepping five.
The next contest was with North liast on our home floor. Try as hard
as they might. the team was not able to overcome the lead caused by Reid,
who was North lfast's high man with ten baskets to his credit.
The squad then motored to Vyaterford on January 6, and succeeded in
bringing home the bacon only after a hard struggle. ending in a 25-23 vic-

GIRLS' BASKETBALL FOR 1927-28
All too scared to play. I think we even forgot to chew frum, and you
should have seen us afterward, quiet as could be. So we didn't have any
confidence for the next game. Northeast. here. We made three baskets and
a foul the first quarter. and that's all we did the rest of the game. It was
awful. The third game was with XYaterford, and we were tickled to think
we could probably beat them. XYe always had. But with them ahead 17-5
at the end of the half it looked doubtful. Kliss Porter told us her opinion
and probably everybody else's, that we were regular sissies. lfghl And
before we started the second half, one of the fellows told us to play football
if we conldnlt play basketball: so we did. made eight baskets, and almost
won. But they called it a tie, although there was some dispute as to who
really did win. Ve did, of course. Lawrence Park at home: Fun? Oh,
boy! lX'hy we had the whole second team in no time, and with nearly twenty
baskets to start on. XYC enjoyed ourselves that night. and Miss Porter fairly
beamed. But Corry spoiled it all. Ilid you ever know it to fail? They
brought so many people with them that I guess we were seared out. Any-
way we let them get a few more baskets than we did. Albion? Oh. why
bring that up? Girard? NYell, if you eould see their center. you wouldn't
blame Dorotha for saying, "You're too darn big." She was nice. though,
and just laughed. And speaking of centers, and people being 'ffat" you
should see the lidinboro guards. XYe almost didn't get there anyway, and
then to be confronted with objeets worse than snow banks. It was quite
funny. If we were up against snow drifts at lfdinboro we got caught in
whirlwinds at Franklin. and we were going to take it all out on XYaterford
when they came here, but we didn't. So Girard came here and still Dot
hadn't grown tall enough to reach up to her center. and neither had Marge:
so we let them get six more points than we did. Vile went to Corry on the
NYednesday night after a party at Helen's on lllonday night and the Valen-
tine danee Tuesday night and we were a little t?l bit tired. Marjorie tried
to ruin herself, and us, by falling on the iron bar that night, and everyone
said what a good game she was playing'-it was tough luck all around. I
guess she thought sol :Xnd we did. But you eouldn't keep her down: she
played at Northeast two nights afterward, and how! Wie made them work
for what they got, tool Albion came to Union City the next Friday, and we
,'Xl,KlUS'Ii won. lt was about the most exciting game of the season. First
they would get a basket: then we would. and back and forth until everyone
was just about all in with suspense. and the boys' game only made it worse
beeanse theirs was just the same only more so, if possible. Yve worked so
hard that night that when Franklin came here the next night we were all
played out and they doubled the score on us. But it's all part of the game.
sog. VVe will never quite forgive ourselves, though, for letting Viest llljll-
ereek beat us when we went there. XYe should have walked away with
them. but somehow we didn't. .Xnd the lidinboro game wasn't any better,
but when NYest Klillereek eame here we won. with the seore if-S at the end
of the half, I2-12 at the third quarter and a gain on them of tour points in
the last quarter. You should have seen us afterward. XYe simply howled.
Wie went to the tournament again this year at XYest Millereek and had
a dandv time. Xte won the first game, which was with Westfield, lil-5. but
lost to Northeast in the semi-finals by two points. XYest Millcreek won the
tournament, beating Northeast in the finals.

GIRLS' INTERGLASS B. B. GAMES
This year, for the First time in the 2111112115 of tl1e High School, inter-class
basketball games were scheduled, with Z1 silver loving C1113 to be awarded as
tl1e trophy to the XVlI'll1C1' of the most games. liach class played two games
with every other class. twelve games being played in all.
Tl1e first game, between the Junior and Sopho1no1'e girls, aroused n1ucl1
interest as well as curiosity. Both l1CZLlllS played well considering tl1e amount
of practice each had had: the score was 19-9, favoring the Sophs.
The Freshman Girls llllt up a good Fight against the Seniors i11 tl1e second
conflict. securing their total score of 111116 in the last half, but the lH01'C experi-
enced Seniors defeated them 19-9.
Then the winners of these first two CO1l1l7Z1tS contested against each other,
the Sophomores winning by a score of 16-5.
However, the juniors i11 their struggle witl1 the Seniors were not so for-
t11nate. This time, try as hard as they might, the score was 18-3 against the1n.
The Sophomores, winners of their two previous games, also succeeded i11
defeating the Freshmen with a 21-14 victory.
The Freshman team then combatted with tl1e Junior girls, but, although
they again did their best, the score ended 15-10 in the juniors' favor.
Now the Seniors Hllfl Freshmen strove to wi11 the next conflictg tl1e result
was a 6-2 win for the Seniors.
Tl1e unconquerable Sophs obtained another victory. this time with a score
of 16-5 against the Freshies.
The juniors 111et the same fate at the hands of the Sophomores, tl1e score
The Seniors and the Sophomores were surely both o11t to win the next
game. The score proved a narrow victory of 5-4 for the Sophs.
The Seniors immediately made up for that defeat, though, by beating the
juniors 6-1. and thus obtaining second place i11 the contest.
The invincible Sophomores at the close of their brilliant careers as basket-
ball stars for this year were awarded the silver cup as their d11e for winning
all the games they played. '
Now that the race is over, we think of its results: some good players were
found in the line-11p among tl1e numerous 111ediocre ones, this basketball will
reach players who could not be uncovered any other way. and so it xvill con-
tribute to our Varsity as the years pass. XYe all hope that such a league will
be formed next year and in future years.

BOYS' INTERCLASS BASKETBALL
Inter-class basketball, a new feature on our athletic program, was ac-
cepted readily by the students of the High School and proved very popular
throughout the entire schedule. Much interest was displayed when it was
announced by the coaches that a league was to be formed among the classes,
with a boys' and a girls' team from each class. Practice was started and it
was realized that the probable winners of the cup would be the juniors, who
made up a large part of the Varsity Second Squad. and because Varsity mem-
bers could not play, it was a generally accepted fact that the Juniors would
take the cup.
In the opening game, january 6, a large crowd was on hand to view the
contest. Shortly after the game started, there could be no doubt of the out-
come. A powerful Junior team waded through the Sophomores and easily
defeated them 19 to 6. ln the next game, a week later. the Seniors routed the
Freshies 14-S. On January 23 the Sophs took the Seniors into camp 11-6.
In the next game the Freshmen upset the dope basket and nosed out the
Juniors 20-18 in a very interesting game. In a listless game played as a pre-
liminary to the Varsity game on February 2 the Sophomores hooked the
Freshmen 19-12. As revenge for the Freshmen's defeat the Juniors came back
and trounced the Seniors 41 -3. The next game also went to the Juniors when
they beat the Freshmen 22-11 after a surprising rally in the last period. The
Freshmen won their next encounter from the Seniors 11-9 in a thrilling game,
despite the presence of a former Varsity member in the Senior lineup. In the
next game, on March 5, an unusual thing occurred in the playing of the game
between the Sophomores and Freshmen. Because of the jeering of the spec-
tators while a Sophomore was shooting a foul. the referee told him to continue
to shoot them until the yelling stopped. The player was allowed to shoot
sixteen: six of them were made: these had a direct bearing on the outcome
of the game, which the Sophomores won 11-9. There are many who question
this decision and believe that the game should have gone to the Freshmen.
After so spectacular a game. the whole student body turned out to see the
next game, Seniors versus Sophomores. It was a close game but the Seniors
won it in the last quarter by the score of 15-12. On March 13 the Juniors
again beat the Seniors ll-7. ln the next set-to the Sophomores hooked the
juniors 19-16. Now came the big game. The juniors seemed to be all pepped
up. The Sophs and juniors were tied for first place in both First and second
halves. This was the deciding game. The juniors scored the first, they
scored the last-it was a walk away. As the whistle blew the score was 29-9.
The Juniors got the cup.

W THE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION
The Athletic Association was reorganized in September, 1927, with
Stephen Bennett as president, Genevieve Baker as vice-president. and Alohn
Cooper as secretary. There were two students elected from each room to
attend these meetings besides the football manager, l'arker Young, and Coach
All those who paid their dues of thirty-tive cents could get tickets to the
games for twenty-live cents, the usual price being more. This went over
quite well and many responded. The football and basketball tickets were
sold by those whom Mr. Klagill thought could sell the most.
The teams were allowed to use the City Hall without cost. This greatly
reduced the expenses, most of which are paid. Athletics are very important
and this Association should bc suppored by the whole school.
The more literary of our high school have formed magazine clubs in
connection with their respective English classes.
The Seniors enjoyed the novels and articles of the GOl,DEN BOOK.
One day in each month was devoted by the Fourth Year English class to the
perusing and discussing of their contents. Not only modern novelists but
writers from the Shakespearean Age and other old but familiar writers as
Dickens and Stevenson are represented by short stories, essays, or dramas
in the GOLDEN BOOK.
The Juniors and Sophoinores were interested in the MAGAZINE
VVORLD. This is about the same as the GOLDEN BOOK, only it is on a
smaller scale and is more modern, inasmuch as it contains none of the old
authors. A novel feature of this little magazine is a "round table" department
composed of student compositions-essays and poetry-to which any high
school student may contribute.
The SCHOLASTIC, an interesting little magazine that is entertaining
and instructive to the Freshmen, is published monthly and contains articles
of local and foreign interest and short stories.
These magazines tend to broaden one's knowledge of facts and literature
and therefore are beneficial to the student and the high school as a whole. It
is sincerely hoped that these clubs will continue to be found in the future
because of their success in the past.

CH' 'i BIRD CLUB
ln the autumn of 1927 The Union City High School Bird Club was re-
organized with twenty-five members. Our club is associated with the Na-
tional Audubon Society, from which we receive our literature, leaflets, and
buttons. Our boys and girls are very enthusiastic friends of our native birds,
several of our members having been members of clubs conducted in connec-
tion with the Scout movement. Some of our members have Field Note Books
in which we have recorded field observations on our most common birds.
Others have maintained feeding stations in winter that the feathered friends
might not be lost during the inclement season. Our study of birds is again
pursued under the headings General XYork of Birds, Birds of the Air and
Leaves, Birds that XYork on Bark. Birds that Destroy XYeeds, Song Birds,
Injurious Birds, and General Classification of Birds. XYe have made a fairly
careful study of the appearance, habits. benefits or injury of about thirty
species, especially emphasizing the Mourning Dove, Bald Eagle, Oven Bird,
Yellow Billed Cuckoo, XYhite Throated Sparrow, and Bitterng these six were
the birds suggested this year by the national organization.
Our contest in making bird houses has not yet started Cat this writingj,
but we are promised prizes for the best houses made by members of the club,
and we are sure that we will derive much pleasure and benefit from this phase
of the work.
Wie are looking forward to our spring hikes and summer vacation, when
we will have an opportunity to observe these friends of whom we have stud-
ied, as they perform their various tasks of homemaking' in their native haunts.
Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom of '27
The Junior-Senior Banquet which was given May 27, 1927, spelled suc-
cess. The procession consisting of the faculty, Board of Directors, the
Reverend Mr. and Mrs. liaton, juniors, and Seniors. upon entering the ban-
quet hall gave exclamations of admiration as they gazed on the decorations
of blue and white, the Senior Class colors. The clever menus entitled "Stow-
away" were decorated with the High School colors. maroon and white.
After the invocation by the Reverend Hr. Eaton, the following menu was
served: chicken soup with noodles. relish, queen olives, Kalamazoo celery,
creamed chicken in patty shell, mashed potatoes, parkerhouse rolls, green
peas, brown bread, sherbet, fruit salad, vanilla ice cream with strawberries,
velvet cake, coffee, and mints.

loons. The Silver Stream Band of Oil City furnished the dance program.

' HOW TO ANNOY YGUR TEACHER i
In order to do this properly. you must concentrate on the various things
which a teacher sees in and expects of his or her pupils.
Perhaps you have been in the habit of being late for classes, chewing gum,
powdering your face, or holding elevating conversations with your nearest
neighbor on the merits of your latest and most fascinating boy or girl friend,
35 the C2156 may be 3 Of perhaps you only sit planning what you will do as soon
as you can possibly escape from the classroom: or, again, you may be one of
the vastlnumber who merely sit with a vacant expression on the countenance
and wonder how the teacher can be so interested in that extremely dull sub-
ject he or she is trying to drum into your equally dull head. If you belong in
any.of the above mentioned classes, and of course you do if you are a normal
pupil, you must immediately plan to reform.
First, arrive promptly for all classes. lt will be interesting to note the
look of surprise in the teacher's eye. You sit erect without fidgeting, poking
stray objects on the desk with your pen. whistling through your teeth, yawn-
ing, or exercising your jaws with a portion of Mr. XYrigley's famous pastime.
Now display intense interest in the subject at hand, try to appear intelligent.
fl .might say here that this is the most difficult of the proceedingsj At this
point you will notice a strange gleam in the teacher's orbs. You are progress-
Teacher will begin to question pupils on subject. Be prepared to answer
any question promptly and clearly. It may be necessary to study an hour or
so the evening beforeg but you will be amply repaid for your trouble when
you see the teacher pass an uncertain and far from steady hand over the eyes
and begin to look somewhat like an animal at bay.
Keep this procedure up for a week. never forgetting a cheery and pleasant
"good morning" and "good afternoonn at the beginning and end of each school
day. Also, do not forget to thank the teacher for anv correction or explana-
tion he or she may see ht to make for your benefit. This has been known to
cause a complete collapse, if adhered to strictly. '
About this time, you come to school and are informed that your teacher
has suffered a nervous breakdown, superinduced by shock, and is in a semi-
conscious state. Though the doctor has done all in his power to aid. patient
does naught but mutter and mumble something which sounds strangely like,
"Oh, it isn't possible! It can't be possible l"
You are now enjoying the fruits of your week of unnatural toil. Finally
the doctor's verdict is given. The pedagogue must have a long. and for a
teacher, expensive sojourn in some quiet and secluded mountain resort, or he
or she cannot recover.
As it is common knowledge that teachers cannot stretch their salaries
beyond a few necessary meals and books to make them more ht to lead you
and other hopefuls in the way you should go, you can readily see how the
trip will be an impossibility. VVith high hopes, you arm yourself with a few
flowers, don your brightest smile, and call on the poor victim of circumstance
to wish a speedy recovery. Teacher regains consciousness long enough to
glimpse your bland innocent smile: then lapses into unconsciousness, and
X'Vhereupon, you take out your powder-puff, chewing gum. and so forth,
and with a sigh of relief decide you can be yourself again. You have suc-
ceeded in annoying your teacher.

The party was over. His friends had gone. The thrill was past. The
money and car were gone-the money from the bad checks he had passed,
the car stolen from where it had been parked on a side street. The car was
lying now, a heap of burned ruins. a short distance from town.
He was! now tramping back in the gray preceding dawn to his father's
farm, where he stayed. The morning was chilly, somber, depressing-not
at all conducive to cheerful thoughts especially after what had passed.
XYhy. oh, why, had he ever come to the point of taking that car, signing
those checks! It was all the fault of that moonshine he had drunk. But
where did he get that? Ah. it was Bob who had met him in town and told
him of the party they could throw. Bob had had two girls and plenty to
drink. All that was needed for his share was a car and some money. They
would go to a roadhouse. thirty five miles from there, and spend the night
in having a roaring good time. But he had had no car, no money. There
would be no party for him.
But a few drinks made the prospect seem more inviting and much more
practicable. They had finally settled the question by taking a car which
they had found available through a carelessly left key. Then at the roadhouse
when the time for settlement came, he had had no money. The only way
to pay his share was to write some checks, even though he had no money in
the bank. At the time, it had not seemed to be such a serious act, but as his
perspective changed it became more and more imposing.
Of the party itself he remembered little. All that remained was a con-
fused picture involving a tumultuous night of fast driving, music, liquor, and
gigls seen in the soft seductive lights of the intimate booths supplied by the
ca e. .
Then that last wild, breath-taking ride home in the dark preceding morn-
ing. As they neared home his head became heavy, his eyes sore. His glance
repeatedly concentrated on a certain spot in the road which, by its moving
sameness, drugged his brain, which awoke several times only just in time to
avoid their leaving the road or hitting an obstruction. Finally the fight was
too much for him. His eyes closed and stayed closed a second too long. There
was a leap through space, followed in rapid succession by a crash and uncon-
Vkihen he was extracted finally from that sweet oblivion, he had found
himself, surrounded by the others, a short distance from the machine, which
was rapidly being consumed by flames. He found himself the possessor of a
large and tender goose-egg on his head, but, on further examination, found
nothing further injured on his person. V i
A passing autoist had carried them into town, after ascertaining their
names and the burned car's license number. Now he was on his way to
his father's home, alone: alone with his depressing thoughts and realizations.
Soon he arrived and, after partially undressing. threw himself down on a
sofa and, through sheer weariness and reaction from the excitement, fell
The following morning. seeking a place of seclusion, he went to the
barn, mounting to the hay loft. There he threw himself upon a mound of the
stored grass and fell into deep thought.
The deeds were done. There would be no retracting now. The celebra-
tion was over, leaving only a bad taste in his month and a deep mark on his

heart. XYhat, he pondered, would be the next step in the tale? Jail! The K9
police would come for him. lt was inevitable. They would drag him away
to the horrible, deadening routine of prison. He had visited one once. He
had seen for himself the terrible results of confinement in such a place-the
unending monotony, slowly and insidiously killing all ambition, all initiative:
the penetrating, piercing introspection which filled the many hour of soliy
tudeg the gradual seeping away of manhood and self-respect. lt was all a
horrible, shocking picture to the boy who loved freedom, who delighted to
wander through open fields, who cared for things of beauty.
He could see himself in there, all too vividly, surrounded by four bleak,
bare walls: instead of gazing at the open, blue sky with its picture-forming
clouds placidly Hoating by as he lay on his back in open fields, as he had de-
lighted to do, to have only that solemn, black fifth wall returning his looks
with a blank stare, closing him in, pressing on his soul that thrived on free-
The picture came to him with increased vividness because of the possi-
bility of its being his own. Gradually the picture became more and more
imminent and menacing until his heart reached the bottom of despondency.
The depths had been reached. He could not be more miserable. There was
only one wayg that was up, for there can be no cessation of the movement
of feeling. It must go either up or down, up to the heights of joy and life
or down to the depths of clespondency and blackness.
Having touched the bottom of the pit, his soul began the upward ascent.
There appeared to him the possibility of an alternative, Might not the blame
for the stolen and wrecked car fall upon Bob? He tried to picture the course
of events following the accident, They had been picked up by the stranger,
He had asked their names and the license number of the car. Had they given
him their own names? He colnbed his memory, but could not recall the in-
cident clearly enough to answer that question. Upon that hung his fate. lf
the automobile episode of the escapade was removed he could easily get his
father toimake good his checks. He could then work for him until the debt
was paid. But the ruined car and the bad checks together would spell for him
the sentence of a long term within the suffocating walls of the prison, clutch-
ing at the throat of his heart and soul, threatening to stiHe his whole being,
his capacity for the love of living.
If only he could be sure that his real name had not been told. He did
not think that perhaps Bob was passing through a torment of his own. His
only thought was of himself, which was only natural. Man is first and last an
egoist-in different shades and degrees, perhaps, but always thinking of that
which concerns him before anyone else.
Therefore, having no way of knowing anything of Bob or any of the other
forces which might be at work for or against him, he could only follow his
thoughts and conjectures and hopes where they might lead him.
It was nearly mid-afternoon when he was aroused from his reverie by the
sound and sight of a car approaching from a distance down the country road
which lay between the farm and town. It was, he recognized instantly, the
car belonging to Bob's father!
XYhat could it mean? XYas it the police coming to take him away to that
living death he had pictured? XYas he to become a part of the morbid scene
he had imagined? XVas his whole life to be scarred and soiled by a portion
spent within prison walls? XYhat would he be when he came out? A marked
man, one who would be scorned and shunned by his fellows, 'by his own
friends, by the whole world: his entire career of living ended because of one
unthinking mistake made in his youth.

The car came to a stop by the farm house within his sight. It seemed an
interminable space of time before a door opened and Bob descended from the
machine. A surge of relief and joy Hooded his heart and choked his throat,
nearly causing him to faint.
Then, from the open door of the car, following' Bob, stepped two men
dressed in the blue uniform of officers of the law. It was the police-the Jail
