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.

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. r 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- awake class. 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. 1 . , , , r Three cheers for U. C. H.

"Autie" takes the cake when it comes to big words, beauty remedies, and superior knowledge. And another thing, we all Wonder why the Fresh- men fellows go to her for advice, send her valen- tines, etc., etc., etc.!! Autie's a good sport and here's luck to her! M. ELEANOR STRANAHAN "Strannie" A. A., 1, 2, 3, 4, Latin Club, 13 Bird Club, 2g Class Corresponding Secretary, 45 Assistant Editor, Anvil, 4, Class Basketball, 4. She has mischief in her eyes and a sweet smile for everyone-especially one. Strannie is a future physical ed teacher. Don't you envy her pupils? Who draws our cartoons? Strannie!

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. fha., L 'STS-754' 4 C ug. G B s .... - C..

ELEANOR MIRIAM BALDWIN "Ellie" . A. A., 1, 2, 3, 45 Latin Club, 1, Bird Club, 2. If "innocence is bliss," this little girl must live in Paradise. The big, bad world, whenever men- tioned within her hearing, makes her eyes grow round with wonder and horror. How could any one do things like that? But t'Ellie"'is a pretty good kid for all of that. JOHN JOSEPH BENNETT "Johnny" ', A.

MERLE FITCH A. A., 1, 2, 3, 45 Bird Club, 2. Our economist is so pessimistic that even his knees knock when it comes to arguing with the fair sex. Merle believes experience is the best teacher. Some day he will awake and find the only girl wait- ing and thenl. KATHRYN ELIZABETH FRANCE "Kay" A. A., 1, 2, 3, 4, Student Council, 23 Basketball, 2, Coach, Freshmen Girls' Basketball, 4. "Kay" is a dynamo of energy. Her eyes liter- ally send out sparks, but beware her temper! She is the chief hope of the Senior Girls' B, B. team. Oh, yes, we nearly forgot that she' believes that 'iLadies prefer blondes," too! LYDIA B. GREGOR A. A., 1, 2, 3, 4, Latin Club, 1g Bird Club, 2. Lydia arrives every morning in the Ford. We wonder if it's all the "car's" fdid you say car?J fault that she is late so often. Some one has already fallen for this blonde, so don't crowd boys. KENNETH FRANCIS HANLIN "Kennie" A.

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.

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.

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 was 31-0. 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 favor. 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. 8 fr e vet s we Page foo-ty-three r -1' -. :W A LK " l -?J2.

Qi' THE ANVIL --- K gi J i if' 9 s L. f.. ri ei' il . f M I 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- tory for us. We then clashed with Corry on our home floor. However, our rivals were too much for us. and they had an eight point lead at the whistle. game was played at Albion. and although the team came very The next near winning, yet Albion came nearer by three points. XYe then us in a 49-19 played Union High at Girard, where the opponents whipped lead. I am gladxto report that the following game Cwith lidinborol was a win, with Hadlock as high man with thirteen points. The squad then went to Franklin. where they played Rocky Grove, but were defeated by six points. Shaffer was Rocky Grove's lead man, placing seven baskets and three fouls. XYaterford next went down to defeat at our hands with a score of 26-17. lfrie Business was the next obstacle in our path and handed us a snappy comeback on their home floor by a beating of thirteen points. St. Agatha then sent up her team to contend with us, and on February 3 we defended the colors with a 40-16 win. However. in our next game at home, we were taken over by Girard High. one of the best in the league. He then came back and whipped St. .-Xgatha's at Kleadville by a seven- teen point lead. At the next game both Hulings and Cochran were down in their marks, and as the game was with Corry, on their own floor. they handed us a dis- astrous beating. The next conflict was with North East. and. worse luck. all but two of Substitutes did their best to till up another high score against the the regulars were down in their marks. ranks, but Reid and their clever guard ran Maroon and XYhite. - .-Xlbion was the next foe to defeat us, Rocky Grove, our next opponent, we Hoor with a score of 34-27, The record grows darker on l"ebruary 29 when we were again beaten by Nillcreek on her own floor, lidinboro then had a chance to strike back from the whipping they had received on their home floor. They canie back with vim, and in a peppy fourth quarter they defeated us with a score of 23-20. Then came the last league game when we played XYest Millcreek on our own Hoor, and ended the season, not in a blaze of victory, but by a seven point defeat. Vile received an invitation to the tournament at lldinboro on March 16-17, which we accepted. Friday afternoon we were matched with the Cambridge Springs team. which we defeated only by one point in a very close and exciting game, Saturday afternoon we met our XYaterloo in the Spartansburg five who seemed to have luck with them. We wish to take this opportunity to thank Mayor liastinan and the Council for their kindness in giving us the use of the Hall and to also thank the basketball fans of the city who gave us the use of their cars for trans- portation. The score was 29-24. allowed to finish us on our own .Q Page forty-five Z' u KM L '0' f x L Y f. v KF TIIE 1 N 1 v Xl23 F Doc. Dec. Inn. jan. jam. jan. 12111. jan. fan. jan. Feb. Feb. Feb. Feb. Feb.

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.

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 being 9-2. 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. r GV if X ll Page forty-nine Ui av 1, X x Q n W' Y -,jr A ,ff 1 Y A .A . ,rar fm t fii 91 it oi cl S9 51 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. lll 0 'N 1 -.' Page fifty , 'Di-J' 0- qq cf? U 4 N, Y - K - J.

J ,W KF W I -' ' 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 Nlagill, 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. LITERARY ACTIVITIES 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. It . Me A -1 fs' Page fifty-seven , ,g.. " i x N ,gi '-' ' X -fs ., ..

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.

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- mg. 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 expires. 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. -By Marjorie Cox, Freshman. Page sixty-two ilk. i 0 'Ns Q f TJ f- 5f--4f--- rf ' X SOLILGQUY Nt of . .

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- sciousness. 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 asleep. 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 -By Howard Carlburg, Senior. i T S 0 i A i i sf' a TFP' 'wig f Page sixty-three x '+- G' , y' ' 2. 4 .

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- dom. 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.

His life must not be ruined by his one mistake. The car came to a stop by the farm house within his sight.

Then, from the open door of the car, following' Bob, stepped two men dressed in the blue uniform of officers of the law.
