Stock well; Manual Training Miss Inglis SINCE their Freshman year, the Seniors of 1920 have found in Miss Inglis a never-failing friend and adviser, who has given unceasingly of her valuable time and energy t« the promotion of class activities. Her resourcefulness and endless store of original ideas have always been gladly placed at the disposal of the class, whether for dramatic work. Red Cross, athletics, or social activities and good times. Besides being a comrade, she has commanded the greatest resj ect from every memlier of the class. Whatever success the class has had in upholding and promoting high standards in lioth class and school ideals, has l een due in a large measure to the enthusiastic support and encouragement offered by Miss Inglis. I he class is very glad to have any chance to express in the smallest degree their very great appreciation of all that she has done for them.BiamiWMnMnHRnmgHnRnnHSiiiitiiJiaBiiBimiiFniifiiiiBiiitifitiiiisiiaiiniiiBiiiiiiii iiiiitiint uriiiiiuimniitfuifUHiiiiiyir-i!: Huuneunraiiniiiii'iii jhinwiiuiR U X I V E R S I T V HIGH SCHOOL, MI X X E A P O I.

Page f ifteenT II E iiiuNRiniwm B I S B I L A N I N E T E E X - T W E N T Y History of the Class of 1920 IX the fall of 1916 began the lively career of the first class to have an oppor-. tunity of completing four years' work in “LT” High. They began their good work under the leadership of Miss Smithies, who was then the Latin instructor of this school. Many of this original Freshman class have left the school and made places for those who now make up the greater part of its membership, but the following faithful ones might be called the charter members of the class of 1920: Helen Haggerty. Mildred Jaynes, Marguerite Robinson, Lois Wilde, Theodore Ericksen. Frank Moulton, and Lloyd ye. Within two weeks after starting, the class was organized without a constitution and has proved ever since that such a document is not necessary for the peaceable carrying on of business. In January, 1917. the numlier of students was increased by the entrance of the only mid-year class accepted by "L”’ High. The seven who were capable of making up the half year's work covered by those who entered in September and who are at the present with the class are: Helen Baldwin, Lillian Borreson, Dorothy Bowen, Helen Jackson, William Coffman, Francis Colgrove, and Hugo Miller. Dana Durand Iroin this group would also be included had it not been that his parents are temporarily residing in Poland. During this first memorable year the class of 1920 distinguished itself by plunging into dramatics. They gave an elaborate production of the famous court scene from "The Merchant of Venice. ’ which would have delighted the heart of W illiam Shakesj)eare himself. In this year the girls started the precedent, which they have maintained throughout their four years, of winning the gymnasium demonstration, and the captain ball tournament. In the second year the class was disappointed in having Miss Smithies leave for Chicago, but they felt duly recompensed in having Miss Inglis take her place as class adviser. In this year the class, after due consideration, had decided to admit some new members, and some of our most prominent memliers appear in that group. Among these are James Bohan, VVinnifred Hughes, Ruth Palm. Elvira Butler, and I’hillis Clemetson. As Sophomores the class distinguished themselves in many ways, and chiefly as the proposers of new ideas. The Junior Red Cross was organized under the leadership of the Sophomores, and in the spring our adviser. Miss Inglis. was chosen captain of the Mountain Ash Troop of (iirl Scouts. At an all-school party, in February, in honor of Mr. Miller, who was then leaving for Camp Dodge to be connected with Psychology Department, the class presented the school with a service flag with a large star in the center representing Mr. Miller's service. The third year started out auspiciously with admission of alx ut fifteen Juniors, including the present editor-in-chief of the "Campus Breeze.” Lawrence Paist. and many others. As Juniors several of our members were on the Breeze staff, and most of them were faithful contributors to it. The position of editor-in-chief. which usually goes to a Senior, was held by a Junior, James Bohan. During the year the class continued the precedent established by the former classes, and entertained the 1919 class with a banquet and dance, commonly termed the Junior-Senior, at Alice Shcvlin I fall. W ith Monroe Strickler as president, the class plunged into the worry and flurry of the senior year with a resolution to make the class of 1920 forever remembered in I . H. S. W ith their usual energy for beginning new activities they reorganized the Math Club, under the direction of Mr. Smith, and helped add to the income of the Dramatic Club. Indeed, most of the cast of the "Twig o’ Thorn" were Senior girls, who helped make the play a success. Their histrionic talent also was given Page Sixteent X I V KRSITY II I (i II SC H O O I M I X X K A P O I. I S expression in the Senior Vaudeville, one of the biggest successes in the senior year, and in the class play, "The lypsy Trail.' Xor was the senior year all work and no play. Parties, which were Riven once a quarter, helped to liven the atmosphere, and in February the Seniors were guests of honor at the annual Junior-Senior Pali. Then in June came graduation and the dignified Seniors became more dignified Alumni. Class Prophecy I T has often been the experience in the career of a great man that lie is called upon to make some momentous decision which rightly made would put him on the flowery path to greater fame, but which wrongly made would send him wandering down a weedy way. What man. in the hour of such a decision, has not prayed for a vision into the future which would show him the right road? It was undoubtedly with the accomplishment of this end in view that the inventor of the hiija struggled in a lonely hut with a rickety old table until he woke up great Caesar's ghost and a few other slumberers, and brought them into communication with our groping people. Thus it is that I have determined to show the Class of 1920 with the help of my faithful ouija board with its control over the beyond, just what they will be in twelve years, if they take our advice, and follow their natural bent! hiija! I call you to my aid ! "Tell us quickly, tell tis true. What a short twelve years may do." The hiija staggered haltingly across the board, nearly fell off the edge, and then, gaining speed, it proceeded to dance about from letter to letter. 1 present herewith its interrupted wanderings: "$15.00----$15.00." Twice it repeated that prodigious sum. "Put what means such nonsense?" we ask. "$15.00 a seat to hear Thomas Monroe Strickler. our magnolius, world-famed tenor, singing his snappy Irish lullaby, entitled "Rebecca. Please Powder Your Xose." To me. this seems a fitting culmination to our fond president’s career. Strange as it may seem, my next thought was of Donna Rosen. "Ouija! Tell me the future of Donna!" The board stood upon its hind legs and slowly turned around. Suddenly, it raced around the board. and spelled "The Dancin’ Doll"; it then started to shimmy here and there until it fell—kerflop!—into my lap. We hesitated, wondering whom to inquire for next, when, suddenly, the queer little stool l»egan to race around at a great rate! "Where is my little red book?" it fairly screamed. "Where is my red ink?" For heaven's sake, whom was the Ouija talking aliout? In answer to my question, it frantically spelled out "Alys Dyer." "Helen Haggerty next." The board stool stock-still, apparently astounded that we should ask it such a question. It then sadly spoke: "Dear Miss Haggerty’s Column of Advice to the Lovelorn. Hearts mended while you wait.” ( h, well, twas ever thus! If the little wizard could help me with everyone as well as that. I would stick bv it to the bitter end. "Put how about Rosamonde Tuve?" Ouija tore, leaped, and bounded. Would it never stop? Finally, it succeeded in spelling out. "Matron of Insane Asylum, just erected in St. Paul: ver | opular with inmates." This did not surprise me at all. We had only to mention Frank Moulton’s name when the little table began tearing madly from letter to letter. "Frank Moulton, ambassador to I’topia, Page Seventeenini! □iitiiiiffiiniiiilflttiiiiii!!mini iiiiiio iMiiiBiiiiafWRnniBiiinnmiiRinniiBniiiiiiiiinaflfxnKStiiiiiHKHimimiiiiiiHTniiiiiiiirtr rciiiiininiixiiiininniiNiiii nil iitiiim.iini T H E N I N E T E E X - T W E X T Y B I S B I L A appointed by Hiram Johnson. Much respected by natives; vision extends from one island to another. Grown dignified!" Xot so surprising, at that. 1 remember he once told Ruth---- “Ah, yes! Ruth Palm.' The Ouija did not understood meat first. ‘‘Ruth Palm," 1 repeated : “short for Palmer." Then with great understanding the table sped across the board, informing me thusly, “Ringling Brothers----featured clown------big salary----exciting life!” Exciting life! What did it mean? Again the Ouija tore across the letters, “Invents new dances for all the clowns in the circus-----exciting life." So that was it! Such an exciting life! I never once supposed Ruth would come to this. What will ever happen to Hugo Miller? I really did not expect the Ouija to solve this enigma—but lo and behold !—the thing moved ! “Hugo E. Miller-----missionary to I'topia----big lights with E. V. Moulton -----Moulton trying to teach natives German-----Miller objects because-----" Here the Ouija tumbled off the board, and. say what 1 would, the persistent little thing refused to budge. W hen I inquired about Edward Grunike, at first the Ouija did not move, and apparently rebuking my inquisitiveness. Later, however, it informed me: “Ed Grumkt------great author-----latest book just out. ‘My Adventures in an English IV class’---very popular-------best seller." “Won’t Ed ever do anything more exciting than that?” I inquired. But all I could get out of the ()uija was, “My! I low curious we are!" Mercy! Too bad! Ed Grunike tied down to a literary career! Now. Marguerite Robinson------oh. yes, Marguerite, of course! What will she become? The sacrilegious little thing answered me in this flippant manner: “)V gods, how should know? Ask her " After much coaxing and urging on my part, and much squeaking on the part of the Ouija, I learned: “Miss Robinson, professional Sunday school teacher -----teaches children 'mathematics’ during class time---very beneficial!---keeps them occupied and interested------has set up a second Oak Free in church-------- entire Sunday school out every Sunday!” “Is that all?" I persisted. “Isn’t that quite enough for one person?” questioned the Ouija. “I've run out of wind!" I gave the Prophet time to catch its breath before inquiring about Elvira Butler. “Good old Elvira, what will lx come of her?" The Ouija did not hesitate. “Head cook in waffle parlor-------recommended by Miss de Boer------because of excellency in Erench----luxurious home life----- studies music on the side-----learning to play phonograph----specialist in Yictrola music." By this time. I had begun to believe that the Ouija was intoxicated, for, without any assistance on my part, it was stumbling, staggering, reeling, and falling across the board. Finally, partially recovering, it spelled out: “1 am a ship--- I’m seasick. Lady al oard-----name, Helen Jackson-------traveling to Switzerland -----plans to circumnavigate Lake Geneva to obtain ideas for new serial appearing in ‘The White Cat Serial entitled ‘The Wild Life.' " The Ouija ceased staggering and began to dance from letter to letter, “Oh, please hand in your contribution—the paper’s six months late!" To whom was the Ouija referring? It sounded like Orrie Paist. but------- Page High teenI X I V E R S I T V H I G H SCHOOL, M I X X E A V O L I S “I-awrence Paist-----writer of popular song hits-----presented on all well- known New York stages-------musical comedy entitled, ‘I'll Say She Does, but You Tell ’Em,’ presented at Little Theater---big financial success. “Giants Win!” shrieked the Ouija with a sudden flourish. Very plausible, indeed; but what had this to do with our illustrious class? “Jack Eaton, the Giants’ star catcher smashes ‘Babe’ Ruth’s envious record. Six home runs in one game.” “Impossible!" said I. “Relieve me, or call yourself a liar," snapped Ouija, and stopped, stalk-still. Rut again it moved! “Hislop and Brock! Greatest show on earth!" shouted Ouija. “See Dot Bowen and Gladys Kuehne, the bewitching snake charmers with brands Colgrove, the spineless wonder." Well, well, Ouija spilled quite a line that trip. But thump,—it had not ceased yet. "Cecille de Mille presents Lucille Brock and Phillis Clemetson in the Rival Vampires.' It's stupendous! Gorgeous spectacle!" I seized the Ouija in horror. How could such a thing be possible? But the thing was raving, it couldn’t stand still. “Jacobson, Pierce and Staples, beauty parlors, lemon lotion and henna rinses a specialty. Personal attention to every customer. No smoking in massage parlor." Ah, well! Talent will rise to heights of fame! “Ouija, prophesy! Give us Elijah's judgment on Theodore Ericksen and Fred Clark." The Ouija again moved. “Clark and Ericksen, stock brokers. Cornering A. (jump’s ‘Carp Caviar.'" So fitting a finish for our noble financiers! The thing was still moving. "Erma Schurr and Lloyd ye. famous ventriloquists,” the Ouija l oard informed me, "present their comedy skit entitled, ‘Blow Me Back to Cuba. Where the Balmy Nectar Flows.' " "What are Raymond and Eber doing?" My answer was: “Eber Erickson and Ray Hanson lead wild band of “I"' High marauders into Carpalatchian Mountains for outing after seven years of solitude." The little thing still moved! "Lillian Borreson and W. Eunice Hughes, palmists. Step in and have fortune read (light yellow, if preferred). Our large assortment assures your complete satisfaction. You have tried the rest, now try the best.” I had scarcely ! egun to think about Harry Hillstrom before the little table rat-a-tat-tatted across the board. It then jazzed fora while. We interpreted this to mean that Harry is now a “jazz-bander." (Juija seemed somewhat disappointed when obliged to admit that Carl I mg-land had recently perfected the “Johnsonite Political Graft Machine” in California. "Will Caroline Murray ever he a teacher?” The little helper aided me by submitting, “Caroline Murray—national Suffragist leader." We always knew that Caroline made the most of her Social Science course! Bill Coffman—and the )uija was off at a great rate. "Just brought into court-----sorry condition----arrested by a speed cop for driving on side walk-----life sentence.” That’s the way it always is. Sins will repeat themselves! Jim Bohan! The Ouija sadly informed us. "I see Bohan standing in front of a little tumbledown store, under three golden balls, supported by a shabby old-clothes model." Page Xineteen!r: - ;i;ii -ih - i 1 Jiiiii , hn;i ir phi.I" ivr!•«•» 1 1 "in ' ‘ i r !■ m 11 hiii'IM ik i nr? T H E X I N E T E E X - T Y K X T Y B I S B I I. A After Ouija had taken a short nap. it informed us concerning two of our most prominent Seniors. “Mildred Jaynes. Helen Baldwin-------engaged in (lirl Scout work-----recently given high awards for service to country." )uija then went on to say that Katharine Hall was starring in “Oh, Maiden Fair With Lovely Hair," at the new Metro-Shubert. Tickets. $15. Katharine always did have a good deal of hidden dramatic ability. Have we no artist in our midst ? Hut wait! “Lois Wilde-------invents new family for page of ‘St. Paul Dispatch’--------- Alakadrosky------surpasses ‘Min and Andy ." With very little coaxing on my part, 1 received valuable information concerning Caro Jurisch and Cathryn 1 Iaisley. “Haisley and Jurisch, street orators, declare for One Big Union and an All-world Strike.’’ How interesting! But is Ouija confiding in me? "Wilma (lerst-----noted politician-----Republican ticket------Lucille Larson opposes her------runs independently--------close shave for governorship of New Jersey." “Well, 1 belie?'e the irksome task is finished,” I said to myself. The Ouija chose, however, to disagree. "Don’t be so hasty. Elfrida Lundeberg, directress of tin pan symphony, specializes on combs and rubber bands----very talented woman.” At last my conscience is clear! If each member of the Class of 1920 does not choose to follow his natural bent and calling, he has no one but himself to blame for his failure in life.

Webster’s Dictionary says, “A Junior is one lower in station, or rank." The Juniors admit being "lower in station," but wish it distinctly understood that they are not "rank." How could it be possible, when every day their work has required each of them to turn over many a new leaf? Knowing that Shakespeare once remarked, "All the world’s a stage, the Junior Class has tried to take its place l efore the school footlights by aiding the Seniors in the organization of a Dramatic C lub. Through the work of this club (in preparation for astronomy in the I’niversity course) there have been developed a number of stars. Though most of these stars have been Seniors, the Juniors are content to take some comfort in their reflected radiance. During the year, the Juniors have had Miss Smith as their class adviser. 1 ler patience has Wen limitless. I ler aid has l ccn inestimable. She has their love, their thanks, their sincere appreciation: and their only regret is that the work of advising them has been of such weight that she is now under necessity of spending a year across the Atlantic in recuperation. May the "bonnie hills of Scotland" protect her from wind and storm; may "Merry England" keep light her heart: may she come kick refreshed and restrengthened to the school which will miss her so much. The Juniors started the social activities of the year with a wiener-roast at Fort Snelling, one and all demonstrating a love for “hot-dogs." The next event was a sleigh ride, which ended with refreshment ami music at Miss Smith’s home. "What is so rare as a day in June?” sang the poet, and tliose who were on this outing can truly answer. "A night in January." The Junior-Senior banquet, popularly called the "J. S.," was "just scrumptious," if one can believe the enthusiastic remarks of certain Seniors as well as Juniors who were there. It was held in the kallroom of the Men’s I’nion building. February 14. More recently came a Junior dance, which proved such a success that they decided to have just one more party, an outdoor affair, on the afternoon ami evening of May 28. This was the most exciting and exhilarating | arty the Juniors ever tried. I'anf Tu t nty-sixUNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL, MINNEAPOLIS Hark Ru '— Bru.is, Bruce. Hanson, Young. Edwards.

As this school year draws to a close, in thinking of our departing Seniors, we feel ourselves becoming poetic: Good-bye, Seniors, soon you’ll leave us; Your departing sure does grieve us. Next year we ll try to fill your shoes. We hope they’re good enough to use. ()n dignity we’re short, no doubt; Please drop us yours, as you slip out. From wisdom gained here, now you re through.

"I don’t see why I ever chose W keeping a literary dogs' home as my vocation. The dogs do eat so much, especially that bull-dog, English Department. My Idea Cupboard is almost bare. History Department and Campus Breeze, my most valuable dogs, take more than any of them. and. of course. Mathematics Department can’t live on nothing. Now-Campus Breeze has a grown up puppy, Bisbila. lie howls every year for something to fill him up—and he’s so particular, too!" Mother Hubbard walked slowly over to cupboard, and gazed despairingly at its empty shelves. Suddenly, way back in a corner, she spied an old tin can, covered with dust. "Well, I never!" exclaimed Mother Hubbard. "When did that get in my cupboard? I wonder what it is." She held it up to the light and read. " ‘Description of the Sophomore Class. Why, I didn’t know I had a can of that left. This can doesn't look very good, but 1 have had Descriptions that are fine. I’ll open it and see." The contents certainly looked far from promising. "I’ve seen just as bad messes before, but I've never had one as puzzling as this one," Mother Hubbard mused. "1 wonder if it couldn't be cooked over, or something done to it—but I really don’t know how to go about it. 1 wonder if that famous scientist I read about in the newspaper couldn’t help me. What was his name? Mr. Powers—that’s it!” So Mother Hubbard put on her best shawl, and hurried over to the laboratory of the world-renowned chemist, Mr. Powers, the discoverer of salt and of the conij osition of water. She found the scientist deeply engrossed in a huge copy of his favorite hook, "The Minneapolis Telephone Directory." Mr. Powers listened with interest to Mother Hubbard's story, and his reply was encouraging. "You just wait. First well analyze it. and then we’ll synthesize it. Let us begin by filtering the contents of this first test tube," "Very had ! Very bad, indeed. You see there is very little left to filter. This is the most volatile part of the whole concoction, and vaporizes very easily. There seems to be a little residue, but it’s mostly Foolishness and Powder Puffs.” Pagt Twenty-rightwiinomiBWiiHiBiiiimiinw U N I V E R S I T Y II I (i H SC H OOL, MI N N E A I’ O I.

The chemical substance seems characteristic of the whole can. and it is acting in a way not at all unusual in Sophomore Classes. This is what is commonly called a 'Sophomore Dance.’ The smaller and daintier of these atoms seem to be revolving about on the stage in a most miraculous manner: but larger and more stolid-looking ones seem to be sitting along the edge in a very stupid way. Yes, there does seem to be one of the heavier type of molecules who is dancing about with the smaller ones. He seems constantly in demand. I believe that the more masculine-appearing atoms, barring this one, do not know how. Let us pass on to this distilling flask.” "Look.” cried Mother Hubbard. "Just see that wee globule rushing about! It seems to be simply spoiling everything. See how tiny it is in comparison with the rest of the members of this group. I should call it Impishness, shouldn’t you, Air. Powers?” Some of the test-tubes contained very brilliant-looking atoms, with wise expressions. They seemed very serious-minded, indeed. Then there wre frivolous globules, which seemed constantly going in and out of a certain popular place where they sat at miniature tables and enjoyed some sort of delectable delicacy of which they seemed very fond. In every case, they all seemed to be working for the same end: in spite of their foolishness, they were all pretty generally in earnest. “Oh, Mr. Powers.” cried Mother Hubbard, "1 never can thank you enough!

Mr. Stockwell. Mr. Stockxvell has made an ideal class adviser. This is probably due to his kindly, sympathetic, fun-loving nature, topped by the fact that he is an all-around "good sport.” 'Pile first class meeting was held on the seventh of ()ctober. At this time the class organization took place. The class, aided by these officers, then began plans for tlie coming year, and entered full force into the spirit of “I” High. The first party took place .November sixth, at the home of the president. It is needless to say that everyone had such a nice time that waiting for the next one proved a not altogether easy occupation. After the Christmas vacation came to an end and school had been resumed, the Freshman boys were “initiated” at “Kangaroo Court.” The results were lnitli interesting and satisfactory, for the unlucky boys furnished amusement for upper classmen and. after all. is that not the best thing a Freshman can do? The second party given by the class was a sleigh ride, which took place late in January. Mrs. Westerson very kindly opened up her home to the class on this occasion, which went a long way to make the party as successful as it was. »£ • Thirty!OTiTOiiiiMi!(!aii Kirii.i -jianfmiiii:mjmnDJtiEr.mi«i-Biiimiii..iiiii!:fi[!uiiiTiiiininit!!i[ii,nwiJi!(mi!ifiiiujiiimiiiiijrmiHiJiniii!!a!::n'iii rr.]i:iD!iH'ii(irTnimjiRi!mi!iu !..,t UNIVERSITY HIGH SCHOOL, M I T X F.

But it must not Ik thought that the Freshmen spent their entire time planning and attending parties, as may Ik imagined from what has just been said. So. indeed, in spite of many temptations, "spring fever” lieing among the most difficult to overcome, the Freshmen did not neglect their studies. The old saying, "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." is ever true, nevertheless, ami thus the good times just mentioned served only as oases on the desert of work. Xo doubt there is more than one Freshman who will feel a bit of regret mingled with the joy of the realization of the arrival of the summer vacation, which all boys and girls usually feel, for it will also be the realization of the end of the many good times which the past year has held for the members of the Freshman Class.

Haisley The Campus Breeze Editor in-Chicf...............................................I.awreni e Paist Business Manager........................................................Arthur Porter Editorial Adviser.................................................Miss Incus Business Adviser...........................................................Mr. Mackell The Evolution of a Zephyr DteLYING into the secret archives of ancient history, one finds that in the spring of 1917, a magazine was founded in the University High School. I his magazine had no name, and consisted of several typewritten pages which were read at the then frequent assemblies. The magazine continued in this unique manner until (Jctober 26, 1617. ( hi that historic date the first issue of “The University High School Monthly" was published, being the real foundation of our present "Campus Breeze.” 'This first issue consisted of a few mimeographed pages hound with brass clips, and contained several departments. Indeed, it was a gentle zephyr which has grown into the present “Breeze." John Adams wielded the fan which kept this zephyr moving, and under his leadership it grew steadily in volume and quality. The fall semester of 1918 saw a great stride in the evolution of this zephyr. With a new staff, James Bohan as editor, and Russell Cow as business manager, it now became a real printed and bound magazine with cartoons, a joke column, a colored cover and advertising, which gave it an independent financial standing. The first issue retained the obi name, but the succeeding month a name contest brought in the present name. "The Campus Breeze." which was submitted by a I'agc 7 hirty-fourr X I V E I S I T Y HIGH SCHOOL, M I X X E A POUS Freshman girl. Helen Evenson. With the new name the zephyr progressed in every way, bound to live up to its name. It leaped from a 24- to a 26-pagc magazine, with new cuts and a double amount of literary material. From here on. the “Breeze ’ grew rapidly, and the Football. Christmas, and February Basket-tall numbers passed by in quick succession. Then, as an April Fool, came the event of the year, the Foolish number. Considerable difficulty had been experienced in keeping a joke editor who could suffer such a responsibility and his studies besides: but what matters a little difficulty like this to an editor with as fertile a brain as “Jim” Bohan? As a result of his efforts, and with due credit to the rest of the staff, the big 40-page “Foolish" issue took the school off its feet and left it wallowing in a fit of convulsions, wondering what had struck it. The combined Alumni and Baseball numbers completed the year in which the Breeze had progressed more than it can ever hope to again in any one year. The chief handicap which limited, and still limits, the growth of the Breeze is its financial weakness. In spite of the efforts of the business staff, a deficit of over sixty-five dollars presented itself at the end of the year. By selling tags and lemonade, the business staff managed to reduce this deficit to forty-five dollars; and the Girl Scouts cancelled the rest with part of the proceeds from their summer vaudeville. Thus the “Breeze” started its present year with a clean slate. The now closing school year has upheld the steady progress; and a new staff with Lawrence I’aist as editor, and Arthur Porter as business manager, set about to turn the already windy “Breeze” into a hurricane. The first improvement this year was the addition of an Exchange Department, with Cathryn Haisley as editor. This department, by giving “I ” High an insight into what other schools are doing with their magazines and how they do it. has been a great material aid in improving and enlarging the “Breeze." I’ntil the present year, the “Breeze" has had no constitution or governing documents, save the guiding hand of Miss lnglis. Therefore, in Decemlier, 1919, a constitution was drawn up and adopted. Cpon the day of its adoption, the constitution. like the famous charter of Charter ak, was whisked away suddenly and mysteriously, and it was not until a month and a half later that it suddenly and just as mysteriously reappeared. This constitution has hel)K d to guide the staff and has put us on our feet as a regular organization. The next new feature to he introduced was the Personals column, with Margaret Sweet as editor. This department has done much toward injecting a little "pep." and arousing interest in the magazine. The “Breeze” has also introduced very successfully, this spring, two continued stories, bv Lois Wilde and Carl Langland. This is a new policy with the magazine, and their success insures the continuance of the policy as long as good authors hold out. "The Campus Breeze" owes a great deal, in fact it- very existence, to Miss Rewey Belle lnglis, who has Ijccii as a godmother to it. Slu stood sponsor for it when it first thrust itself forward, and. as the faculty adviser, she has kept it moving steadily forward towards its goal of perfection. “The Breeze" has always had splendid subscription support from the school: 96 per cent of the school is now on the subscription list, ami there is a “Breeze" in every home which sends pupils to the Cniversity High School. This is a record “C” High may well l e proud of. but in spite of the loyal support, the costs of publications, which have increased 50 per cent over last year, have again put the magazine in the hole. An appropriation from the Incidental F'ee ITnd. however, has wiped out the deficit, and the staff for next year can again start with a clean financial slate.

Those who attended any of the meetings will verify the truth of the fact that they were exceedingly interesting, besides being educational in the line of mathematics. Having outside speaker always adds to the enthusiasm of the students conducting the organization, and the Math. Club considers itself unusually fortunate in having had Mr. Fobert, chairman of the National Committee on Mathematical Requirements, and Mr. Mathews, who has charge of the Cniversity Mathematics Club, as speakers during the year. If the club will continue having such speakers during the coming years, it will be an incomparable success, and improvement over the previous mathematics organization in “U" High.

()nc must admit, however, that one cannot have an orchestra without players, so probably a little credit should be given them. They are not a “jazz band." as some people would wish, hut they have tried to please the majority by rendering a higher class of music. It has been their pur| ose to create an incentive in the school for real music, and also to acquire a knowledge of the classics for their personal advancement as well. T hey have tried faithfully to serve in assemblies, the Dramatic Club’s play, the Senior Class Play and Commencement.

Hughes Acme TWO years ago. when Miss Schill first became one of the “U" High faculty, she promised the girls that there should be an honorary athletic association, which was to he called “Acme." since it would ! e one of the highest goals a girl might attain. In January, the association was bravely launched forth, with a good constitution. Miss Schill as the adviser, and five charter members, who upheld the ideals of their organization as best they could. Since then the addition of ten new memliers has contributed to its strength and prestige. This year their energies have been devoted chiefly toward helping girls earn 180 points from the requirements in Athletics. Scholarship and Hygiene, required to win a "L " With this end in view, several series of hikes, ranging from 2 to 9 miles, have been conducted. What, indeed, could be more fun than a snow-shoe hike through the woods? The girls took several snow-shoe hikes from the Eustis Station to the cabin at the L’niversity Golf Club. At the cabin they warmed their hands at the fire, and ate supper (which included cocoa with delicious whipped cream, served by the Acmeans), and told jokes, stories, and. yes, even ghost stories! These weird tales were almost discontinued forcefully, because of a certain frightened young ladv who called for her dear “mamma" in sonorous tones. After supper the hikers would return through the woods, by moonlight—sometimes. Another of the duties of the Acmeans is to assist Miss Schill in athletic affairs, such as choosing inter-class teams, and assisting at demonstrations. ()f course, the girls have been quietly living up to their ideals of good sportsmanship, athletics, and scholarship, as they promised when they were initiated. It is ho| ed that the Acmeans, with a firm foundation of two years’ experience. will be able to perform great deeds next year.

Hislop The “U” Club President..............................................Henry Brin k THE boys' honorary athletic organization as stated in the "I’niversity High School Handbook" is as follows: “The "I " Club is composed of boys who have won their L"' in sonic athletic sport. The officers of the club consist of a president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. "The club holds regular meetings for the discussion of matters relating to the life and conduct of the school, such as the improvement of scholarship, honesty in athletic competition, what constitutes good sportsmanship, and general matters pertaining to the life of the school." Therefore the main purpose of the club is for the betterment oT the school; it exerts great influence in the boys' locker room, and on the athletic field. There was only one officer this year, namely Henry lJrock, president. No other officers were elected liecause they were deemed unnecessary. This organization now has al out fifteen active members, Hugo Miller. Paul Watts, Lloyd Yye and Daniel Pinkelstein having become members last fall by winning the football "I Mr. Smith is an ex-officio member, and an adviser. Each year an honorary member is chosen, Mr. Selke having received that honor last year. In order to become a member of this club, a bov must first win a letter in some major athletic sport. To accomplish this he must make a team and play three-fourths of the quarters, or innings, as the case may be. In order to participate in any of the games the student has to be passing in all his studies. The "V" Club represents, with few exceptions, the best of the boys in the school. It is a goal for which every hoy in school should strive with the best of his ability.

Miss Hubnian and four 1919 Seniors. Elizabeth Young. Alberta Wright. Kannic Lockwood, and Amy Erickson, organized it and made plans for the future. There have been clubs and societies of various kinds in all schools, but probably none of a more original nature than this. Its aim is to promote good fellowship and public spirit in the school as much as possible. In Mav. 1919, these Seniors elected four Juniors to take their place the following year. These girls were initiated at the home of Elizabeth Young. Mildred Jayiies. and Helen Jackson, arrived on time (in their school dresses) and were allowed to sit on the last step of the hall stairs. The mother Entities were arrayed in wonderful ball gowns, and were seated upon chairs suitable to their superiority. “W innie” Hughes and “Lil" Borreson arrived a few minutes late, so they were made to sit on the floor for punishment. Then Helen and Winnie were dressed up in short checkered dresses (and pigtails), while Mildred and Lillian were allowed to don overalls. Two big boilers full of water were brought out next, and the two couples were requested to march up and down Elizabeth's fashionable street, much to the amusement of the neighbors and passers-by. Many worse things were done to them, but all the secrets cannot be given away. The Entities have striven at all times to do the best they could. During the next year they expect that their influence will be more widely felt. The granddaughters are all hard workers and full of the right kind of school spirit.

Last summer, at camp, they presented a vaudeville, including a comedy, “Playgoers.” which they repeated in the Little Theater on their return. The proceeds from this were turned over to “The Campus Breeze.” The girls have had many social good times together. Their “welcome” party, to the new Scouts, was a success, both from the standpoint of recruiting and that of sociability.

The troop also had charge of selling ice cream cones on this occasion, and made a neat addition to its French orphan fund. Since the Mountain Ash Troop was formed, it has held two jolly summer camps. Half of the joy of scouting is camping, and the girls are looking forward to a third camp, this summer, immediately after the close of school. Miss Smith, the troop’s lieutenant, is expecting to sail for Europe, but Miss Inglis will still be with the troop. Owing to the fact that Miss Inglis is to honor Summer School by her presence, camp will last only one week this year. Consequently, the girls are planning to crowd all the pranks and fun they possibly can into the one week. Pity poor Miss Inglis!

Kurtzman The Dramatic Club THH Dramatic Club, as a whole, wishes to thank Miss Mandel and Miss Smith tor their co-operation in the founding and improvement of this new organization. The Dramatic Club may l e defined as a continuation of the Debating Club of the present Junior class. Its membership is limited to Juniors and Seniors, with an exception of “younger classmates” in cases of shining talent (which have yet liccn undiscovered). The first dramatization was “The Twig o’ Thorn,” an Irish play, consisting of much local color and home talent. Considering the fact that the cast was all “home produced” and that all the masculine roles were played bv girls, difficulties naturally arose. Nevertheless, our play was surely a success, owing to the work of the cast, and the “big chiefs," Miss Smith and Miss Mandel. After the play the club members were, strange to say, tired of acting. Miss Mandel, after much persuasion, succeeded in procuring Mr. Rarig, of the Public Speaking Department of the University, who read parts of the witch scene in “Macbeth.” The club was also favored by some well interpreted readings given by Miss Betty Jones, a student at the University. All good things finally come to an end. 'The last meeting of the Dramatic Club was held in picnic form on the river bank. After a lively supper games were played. The best part came when everyone divided up into groups of four, and each group acted out a pantomime. “The Pied Piper of Hamelin." "Ijochinvar.” “Macbeth.” and “Paul Revere’s Ride” were given. But l est of all was a takeoff on "The Twig o' Thom." Ludicrous is the only word that can properly describe it. Fane Forty-fourfiWH»iMiii«miii!!miiiP;ii!!mimiiiriiP!inT]iia!ra UNIVERSITY II I C II SCHOOL, M 1 X X K A p ( I. I S The Senior Vaudeville uVor went to our Senior Vaudeville? We are very glad you liked it." Yes, 1 it was on December 13. 1919. and the Senior Class cleared over $75. The main attraction was “A Little Fowl Flay," a one-act farce directed by Miss Inglis; so, therefore, it was a shining success. Monroe Strickler and Erma Schurr played the leading parts of the hunger-stricken young author and his wife. Andrew Hislop provoked much hilarity in his role of an elderly gentleman. ( My, what a nice grandfather Andy would make!) Lillian Borreson and William Colt-man proved themselves equal to playing even “hired" parts. Perhaps one of the acts enjoyed the most of all. certainly by the people seated in the front row, was that in which Jack Eaton, as a negro, indulged in some delightful lullabies ( ?). Some tricks that had not actually been staged by the Pantages and Orpheum several times were put on by Lloyd Yye and Sam Elanna-gan, who were disguised as a Jew and an Irishman. One other act was composed of three negroes, Hugo Miller, Fill Coffman, and Hans Bonde. sup| ortcd by two Hebrew gentlemen, Andrew Hislop and James Bohan. (Why is it that dark-complexions are so popular in high school vaudeville?) Now. for a change, an old English ballad. What a contrast to the preceding act! Beautiful "English maydens." discouraged but yet hopeful swains, and old peasants, afflicted with palsy, stepped right out of some of the pictures in the English room uj on the Little Theater stage. This was done by means of the fourth dimension. Didn't you smell that limburger cheese when Winnifred Hughes told of the trials of a j oor suburban wife with a horrid conductor? Miss Winnie certainly was amusing. The program, of course, would not have been successful without some dancing numbers. No. there were no “chorus acts." but Jane Sedgwick, of the Class of 1919. and Elizabeth White delighted the audience with a Spanish dance. Jane surely is “up" in the art of captivating her audience. A charming interpretive numlKT was given by Louise Hortvet, Anitra’s dance, from "Peer Civnt." Dorothy Bowen gave a picturesque old-fashioned toe dance in silks ami pantalets. And. last of all. Miss Itiglis, the faculty adviser, was presented with a corsage bouquet. The final curtain closed on a very elated group of Seniors, whose high spirits were not to be dam| cned even at the thought of removing all that grease paint and burnt cork.

Rehearsals, however, are a fair indication of what will happen at the Little Theater on June 5. The greatest strain of rehearsals came, of course, on the coach. Imagine Miss Inglis "hippering" across the stage showing Johnnie how to run like a real boy. or falling off the fence (two chairs) to show how a clumsy fall is made; hear her speaking in modulated Bostonese tones for Aunt Janet's benefit : picture her making love to Frances or scorning Michael, and you have one of the rehearsals to a I.' The cast showed that they had put in many long hours of rehearsing. Krma Schurr as Frances Raymond brought out well the lights and shades of the character. She was by turns romantic, wistful, indignant, bewildered and blissful. Monroe Strickler had the longest and most difficult part in the play.

William Coffman in the role of Ned undoubtedly provoked the most laughter. His matter-of-fact methods of being a l.ochinvar and his de| endence on “Grandma” were most amusing. Quite unusual was this same Grandma, impersonated by I ois Wilde. She was the real romanticist who understood everyone and did an unobtrusive bit of wire-pulling herself. Her scene with Michael in the second .act was one of the cleverest bits in the play. Andrew Hislop upheld his reputation for portraying elderly gentlemen by showing himself a prosperous business man who could be a stern or affectionate parent as the occasion demanded. Gladys Kuehne as the refined, dignified Aunt Janet, Lillian Borreson as the kind-hearted old Lllen. and Hugo Miller as the | ompous butler, were all good in their roles. And what would the Seniors have done without a Freshman. (iilbert Willson? His pan of Johnnie Raymond was no easy part to play and it took much patient exercising to learn how to gallop al out the stage, to tumble, and to semaphore as he did. Many other persons beside those in the cast helped to make the play a success. Lucille Brock’s singing behind the scenes added to the effectiveness of the first act. Miss Dustin, Mr. Stockwell and the committees of Seniors who managed the settings, lights, properties and costumes deserve a great deal of credit, as do the business managers. Harry llillstrom and Rdward Grumke. “The Gypsy Trail” itself is a play which maintains the standards set bv previous I'Diversity High School productions. Besides having an interesting and amusing plot, it has more thought back of it than many comedies, for it is a reflection of the eternal struggle between romance and conventionality. The play has l een given but twice before in Minneapolis and never by amateurs. The Seniors, therefore, in giving it a careful and artistic production were making a real contribution to campus dramatics.

The L II. S. Dramatic Club was preparing to present an Irish Fairy I May—“Twig () I horn, and there was great agitation behind the scene which was presently to Ik Ireland. A phonograph record taken about that time would probably have revealed something like the following: g Farty-scrcnT II E X I N E T E E N - T W E X T V B I S B I L A “Lil”: "Oh well, anyway, kids, I think it will go off all right, don't von think so Rose—I mean Aengus, dear? I mean we won't forget anything, or not very much anyway. You know what 1 mean. ’ (Lil always reveals this last startling fact as though she were the only person in the world who really did know.) Winnie: “Well, I’m going to take off this garb. Everybody says I look positively homely!" Miscellaneous remarks by Xo-()ne-in-Particular: “( h. Helen, what a darling priest you make!" “Hey, Myrtice. got a pin?" “Oh, Mildred, won’t you put this foundation cream on me?" etc., etc. Then Miss Inglis’ gentle accents observing to Sheamus that "his eyes rolled to and fro," or admonishing Kathleen to "look ever upward." Hut finally all was ready, the signal was given, and. shivering, they heard the orchestra begin its prelude—their doom was sounded! It was certainly the shortest number they ever heard an orchestra render—it was over before they knew it. The curtain went up, and front then on, things progressed rapidly. Xessa spun, Maurva gossiped. Ooonah saw sjiooks, Father Brian comforted, the neighbors dumped in. they all jigged (wasn't it surprising how many hairpins those Irish youths lost in the process?!?) Ailed poetized, Aengus stormed, Ooonah chose—and the first act was over. The characters of the two old ladies, as portrayed by Lillian and Winnie, were most realistic, while Rosamonde, as robust Aengus, made an amazingly sincere lover, and Erma Schurr, as Ooonah captivated everyone. 1-ois Wilde, as Aileel. more than fulfilled every conceivable requirement for an Irish ]x et, while Helen Jackson was a most dignified and fatherly priest. As for the neighbors, everyone was delighted with all of them. After a series of tactful maneuvers Miss Mandel and Miss Smith were finally brought out on the stage and presented with the flowers they so richly deserved for their hard work with the | erformance. In the second act "Dot" Bowen, as the camouflage fairy, danced beautifully, Ooonah and Aengus quarreled, made up and were married. It was famine time, but rabbits, ducks, potatoes, cake, wine, milk, neighbors and money miraculously appeared from nowhere, and )oonah and Aileel having danced a stately measure to the music of Aileel’s harp (i. e. Eber's violin out in back) there was a grand climax with everyone on the stage as Aileel reluctantly left to keep his tryst with the fairies. The play was really very successful, and a highly creditable performance for a group of amateurs with little or no previous training.

Besides staging remarkably well two clever one-act comedies at the Little Theater, it has the added honor of having written these plays. The first of these, “The Safe Attack," fell from the pens of the budding authoresses. Alice Hickey and Elizabeth Jones: and “True to Life" or “His First Long Pants," was the work of the young playwright, James Perkins. The cast of “The Safe Attack" was as follows: Vivian Burkhardt. a debutante.......................Makoaret Morris Flizalwth Bess Burkhardt.......................Mary Frames Craham Two disreputable characters.............Robert Tyrkm.. Donald Nelson The Irish cook.........................................Helen Baki.ow Vivian, coming home from a party at midnight, is reproved by little ten-year-old Elizabeth Bess for wearing without permission the diamond necklace of their mother, who is out of town. The girls go to bed. terrified lest burglars should rob the safe of this precious ornament which Vivian finally puts there after much persuasion from “little sister." Alas, "disreputable characters" did break in. Imagine the thrills experienced in seeing a grimy hand brandishing a formidable knife in a glaring circle of light! After the hasty departing of the girls, the “disreputable characters" had a sharp struggle. A crash, a silence, and one form crawled cautiously from the scene! The next morning, an irate Irish cook stood regarding the remains of a cake reposing on a shattered bit of china. There followed an enlightening scene, which proved conclusively that two small boys were the culprits of the night lx fore and their "swag" was not diamonds. but a chocolate cake. Then came a particularly painful part, in which the outraged cook decided to leave—perhaps to marry the gallant Pat—who knows? At any rate, this indeed, was the undeniable climax. "True to Life" was a clever little sketch and the average lx y can sympathize poignantly with the hero of the play. John Woodum had one great aim in life, to appear with the dignity befitting his age—in long pants. “ Ia" and "Pa," however. with a lack of clear judgment, often exhibited by the parents of budding manhood, "thought he was too young.” But they reckoned without their host— for one night their son appeared in ail the glory of “extensions," evidently bought clandestinely with “that money for books. Mother was, after the first shock, disapprovingly resigned. Father was “very disappointed in you, son," etc., until “son" said something a little embarrassing, and then "pa" decided "it wasn’t so bad after all." John had one brief moment of perfect bliss, but then his friends began to pav some calls. They teased him. jeered at him. shattered his new-born dignity. It was really too much, and above the slamming of his bedroom door were heard the words. “There, ding ’em, I’ll never wear ’em again." ami a pair of perfectly new long pants came floating out. The cast of "True to Life" is as follows: Mr. V«»o«liini.....................♦.............. Mrs. Woodum........................................ John Woodum, their son.............................

The Sdrawkcab Land WHEN I was living on a farm near Ashland. Kansas, in 1910. 1 had a most extraordinary experience. ()tie day when my two sisters had been visiting at a neighboring farm, the sky grew suddenly dark, and a rising wind foretold a bad storm. Since it was getting late, and my sisters should soon be home. I set out to meet them, carrying a large umbrella. As 1 hastened along the lonely road, the skv grew darker, the wind howled savagely, and drops of rain spattered occasionally in the dust. I walked with great difficulty for al out a mile, when suddenly I felt mvsclf caught in the midst of a tornado. Before I could realize what had happened. 1 was lifted off of m feet, and whirled far up into the air. It was a terrifying prospect to gaze U|K»n the earth, fast sinking below me. As 1 stared in fascination for a quarter of an hour, the earth diminished from a map to a great ball, almost enwrapt in clouds. By this time I was somewhat accustomed to mv terrific rate of speed, so that I could glance al out me. I soon | erceived that I was being drawn toward another ball which was very similar to the earth. Within a few moments 1 was near enough to this planet to see the conditions on it. I observed, first, buildings like ours, which hung out into the air. There were people, also, who walked with their heads extended out in the air. so that I felt as if either they or I were walking on the ceiling of a room. As 1 floated near I noticed that they had observed me. and were all running out in their peculiar fashion, to see what had arrived. When 1 was near enough, they caught hold of my umbrella and attempted to set my feet upon the earth, so that I might walk as they did. It surprised and amused them greatly to discover that in this way the blood rushed to my head and caused me great discomfort. Therefore, they tied me to the ground on my back, by means of ro|K s and pegs, which position was a little less uncomfortable. bile they were doing this. I had mv first opportunity to survey them carefully. The inhabitants resembled us very closely, excepting that the either faced the opposite way from which they walked, or else they wore their clothes backwards. They greeted me joyously, and enthusiastically when I was settled, saving “eyb-doog,” which. I afterwards learned, means "good-bye." They were exceedingly kind to me. chattering in their queer language, and smiling pleasantly. Each one did all that he could to aid me. such as bringing food and drink. After some Fage Fifty-one■BBMBUHbiAAHhiiinnmiitJittiUMitukinuiiiiiiwiiBHinsnifiiRinffnBniQBiKnti nBnailiBniRininniBKifnwniiimiiHnnBiBninHiiniBnmBBi T H E NINE T E E N - T W E N T Y BISBILA consultation, a few set a!x ut making a sort of swing, by driving two long, stout | oles into the ground securely, and fastening each end of a rope to them. I let myself down gradually, with much caution until I was comfortably settled, so that I was head downward, as far as they were concerned. I had to gaze upwards and backwards in order to see the people; but my position was perfectly comfortable, otherwise. 1 stayed for a length of time with these people, gradually becoming used to my awkward position, and their unusual customs. The mayor of the city ordered a system of cables to lie stretched about the city, to which my swing was attached, so that I could swing myself wherever I wished to go. I soon found, to my great astonishment, that their language and writing were merely English, backwards. Thus they commenced at the end of a sentence and went to the beginning. Their newspapers began on the last page, and were written from right to left. Another peculiarity of these papers was that the paper paid to have | eople to advertise in it. In fact, this was the case in all money matters: A storekeeper paid the people who purchased from him, a doctor paid his patients, etc. At first this seemed an awkward system to me, but I soon perceived that their system, being exactly the opj osite of ours, worked as well as ours, since the money distributed itself in the same way. I was astounded to discover that an old. worn book which 1 Ixnight became actually newer and better looking as it grew older. I was informed that it was the way with everything. The character of these people was unusual, also: When pleased, they acted extremely angry, and vice versa: in eating their meals they commenced with the dessert: they played unharmonious music, using the left hand when we would use the right: at sunrise they went to bed, and arose at sunset. I learned that my arrival had aroused them all from slumber. After I had remained quite a length of time, I discovered the most marvelous characteristic of all: When they were born they possessed full intellect, and they gradually decreased in mentality, until at the time of death they generally knew very little. Thus, in school, they all commenced with what corresponds to our senior year in college, and continued downward to kindergarten. I also noticed that they were hilariously enthusiastic al out me at first, and gradually grew less friendly. 1 was rather vexed until I knew that they were the same with one another. After a year's time they grew weary of me. 1 knew that they were endeavoring to find a way in which to dispose of me. Finally, one of the great scientists informed me that he had discovered that I might safely descend to the earth, by opening and closing my umbrella at intervals of five minutes. This process, he said, would break the rapidity of my fall. Being weary of the place, and homesick, 1 bade them all good-bye (''Hello,” in their language) and descended safely homewards. I lit near York, in England. It was extremely difficult to accustom myself to the ways of the earth. Upon observing my strange actions, and hearing my impossible story, | eople judged me insane. I was in an insane asylum, in York, for several months, until I regained my bearings. 1 was then released, and sent home to my rejoicing, but incredulous family in Kansas. Helen Jackson.

Elizabeth Jones. On With the Dance! BY III E dance slialt thou know the age. Terpsichore leading the choral dancers on the hill tops of Greece was the first exjxment of rhythmic motion. Let us now glance at our modem dances. For example, we will take the noon dancing at Shevlin Hall. Here girls of every type come to practice, as it were, the steps of the evening. A languorous air is being played and the motley crowd is swaying hither and thither and yon to its saccharine wail. Let us watch the separate couples, as they pass ln-fore us. Here are two tall girls that seem unable to get anywhere, advancing and retreating continually and without reason, reminding one of the graceful automobile that will not start until it has chugged backward and forward several times. Another couple are jigging up and down to a would-U-waltz step, and becoming so hot and dizzy that they continually bump into the rest. The music stops and another girl is dragged to the piano. Though seeming reluctant to play, she soon begins with a will in heavy chords and sweeping runs and sudden stops, all of which makes one imagine her as walking angularly out into splashy sea waves up to her knees, with a wooden ami determined smile on her Pat c Fifty-threenr-f?.,iifcTi'irnii!iiT irrmniHimrnnwmmniTBi'ivrminiEniniiniiTimjiniTTiTriir'irHainnimiiiii’iatiinn ii-i imunnniiii.antjrii.'Lr T II E X I X E T E E X - T W E X T V I . ISBILA face. This is more to the taste of the crowd and they jig faster—up and down, around and around, elltows Hying and knees elastic, some on their toes some on their heels. Here comes a couple that have evidently taken for their model a jumping-jack. ()ne sees little of them save their loose elbows and heels. At least, they are enjoying it. which does not appear to he the case with many of the dancers. Though at first they seem to be whirling at a great speed, one soon discovers that it is only their up and down motion that gives that effect. Here is a couple bending towards each other in the position of one pushing a great weight. Their faces are set and intent, their feet move slowly a few inches this way and that, and they continually bob and wiggle from side to side, a truly lovely pair. Another passes us. the shorter girl’s head pillowed in the neck of the larger and a beatific smile on her face. She also is leaning over and appears all elbows. Hut this is the style. There goes a pair galumphing, to use the only suitable expression, galumphing down the hall, in overshoes! The latest step, the “Lame Duck." it is an exact and truthful representation of the creature. The two seem one. closely clutching, atid the one is lame on one foot. It is a difficult feat to get started together, but. once under way, it is a spectacle to compel the eye. Such, Terpsichore, is the dance of the latter generation ! Call it what you will, it typifies the age. Lois Wii.ok.

Moulton Football OX September 27. 1919. about eleven fellows started the fall term at I’nivcr-sity High School with eager anticipation for football and then studies. On the second day of school suits were given out. and practice was begun in real earnest. Aliout twenty-five valiant wearers of the maroon and gold came out in all their glory and splendor. Then followed two weeks of the hardest kind of work that some of them had ever experienced, while the team was being worked into shajH . Several practice games were played with the second teams from other schools, which were won by a large score, causing "I " High football stock to soar way above par. Then came the first real game, which was played with the second team from West High. cry soon after the whistle blew we realized that there were till several things about football that we did not know. The final score was 14 to 0 in favor of West. The I htmvoodv game followed, in which we were outweighed and outclassed in every respect. When the smoke blew away it was found that the score stood to 6 in favor of Hun woody. Then followed several secret conferences with Mr. Smith, and some still harder practice. The next game, which was with I'.Ik River High, showed the results of these efforts. Final score, 26 to 6 in favor of “I " I ligh. ()n the Friday following we went over to St. Paul Academy for a little scrimmage. We were somewhat dubious as to the outcome of this game, but fortune smiled upon us. giving us the big end of a 22 to 0 score.

After playing several practice games, we went down to Faribault for our first game with Shattuck Military Academy. For six innings it looked as if t"' High would come out on the long end. but fortune turned, and after several bad innings the game ended with the score 10 to 3 against us. We lost to St. Paul Academy and Dun woody by close scores. Then we went out to Blake for the big game of the season. For once things seemed to break our way, and at the beginning of the ninth inning the score was 7 to 1 against Blake. They got four runs in this inning and the game ended 7 to 5 in favor of “U” High.

What difference did it make if it was cold or their noses were the least hit shiny? Not a hit. for everyone was having fun and relating the choicest hits of gossip to one another. The girls usually took the Inter-campus Special and rode to Kustis. Mere they left the car and after fastening the clumsv-looking snowshoes on their equally clumsy feet they were ready to start. They usually chose the trail over the hill in preference to the shorter way hy the road. The hikers did not always reach the Golf Cluh hut were always glad if they did. esj ecially when hot cocoa was awaiting them. Hut even cocoa was a mere appetizer and never spoiled their ardor for a home run to a hearty dinner.

Nearly every girl, with the least hit of athletic ability, turned out. In fact, so many came out that they were forced to make two teams, headed by Helen Baldwin and Lucille Larson. The first team consisted of Helen Baldwin, jumping center; Helen Jackson, captain circle; VVinnifred Hughes, captain guard; Mildred Jaynes, forward; Elvira Butler, forward; Dorothy Bowen, guard; and Lillian Borreson, guard. Each class was represented by its strongest players but none could compare with the Senior team. The schedule was as follows: Freshmen 2, Sophomores 5. Juniors 2, Seniors 17. Freshmen 2. Juniors 5. Seniors 14, Sophomores 2. The playing off of these games ended the Captain Ball season and gave the Seniors fifteen points toward the winning of the silver cup. The Newcomb Tournament 4 4T ¥ 7 just can't let the Freshmen win,” was the cry heard just before the W Sophomores took their places on the field to contend with the Freshmen in the first battle for championship in Newcomb; but when at the end of the game Miss SchiH’s shrill whistle was heard, the final score was announced as 12 to 9 in favor of the Freshmen. The Juniors and Seniors also carried on a hard struggle. Even though 1 lelen Jackson was forced to dodge some of Dorothy Bowen's balls, the game ended with a final score of 15 to 2 in favor of the noteworthy Seniors. The schedule proceeded as follows: Sophomores 15. Juniors 2. Seniors 15. Freshmen 12. Sophomores 11. Seniors 6. Juniors 16, Freshmen i2. The last contest, between Sophomores and Seniors, was held April 29. It was "peppiest" and closest of all the games. Helen Baldwin was in the air most of the time catching Helen Barlow's ami Ruth Eckle’s halls. In the first inning the score was 4 to 3. But in the second inning the Sophomores were like bright tar in a dark sky, for they surpassed the Seniors with a score of 9 to 6: not so much difference, but still enough to give the Sophomores the championship and fifteen more points toward the silver cup, which each class looks forward t holding.

T H K N I N E T E E N - T W E N T Y B I S B I L A The Gym Exhibition WHOEVER didn't see the girls’ gym exhibition certainly missed something. ()ne of the biggest and most successful events of the school year was held on the evening of April 16. The exhibition l egan with the “Grand Review,” the order of the day, by each successive class. The Freshmen did very well, in spite of their size, and the Sophomores carried out effectively the difficult diagonal marching. The Juniors and Seniors showed proficiency in their routine of' exercises and marching. The apparatus work was very interesting to the spectators. This included various vaulting and susjxmsion feats and roj e climbing. Who would ever believe that some of the very same girls who nap during study periods could jump over the buck or the horse and make a graceful landing without keeling over? Who would expect one of these same nappers to l e able to climb the vertical ladders, keeping in perfect rhythm with the girl beside her; or. shinning up a rope to the ceiling and descending without burning her hands from friction with the rope? The most interesting stunt of the apparatus work was the rope vaulting by four of the Sophomores. The horizontal rope was gradually raised higher and higher, until the audience held its breath. Marion I .arson was the star performer, but the others also did exceptionally well. The next feature of the evening was the folk-dancing. The Sophomores gave two very quaint simple dances, while the group of Juniors and Seniors performed an odd but charming dance. This was very well done and won the audience's hearty applause. The Newcomb game which followed the dancing was interesting although not very exciting until just before the time was up. At least it began to get exciting for the Juniors and Freshmen, didn’t it? The obstacle race caused the most merriment of any number on the program. It was run by four girls out of each class, and the runners were required to do such things as jumping over a buck or horse, circling around an army of Indian clubs, and scrambling under a decidedly low l ench. I .aura Elder almost broke up the race by trying to walk off with the l ench on her shoulders. There was a great deal of hilarity and rejoicing when the Juniors won the race. The climax of the evening came when Mr. Smith presented a “U" to each of the following girls: Lucille Larson. Florence Pierce, Agnes Pierce, Myrtice Matchitt. and Margaret Posey. He then announced the points won by each class during the evening’s exhibition. The number of |)oints gained followed the rank of classes, the Seniors earning the highest nunil er and thereby receiving fifteen points toward winning the cup. Everybody feels that the success of the evening was mainly due to two things: first. Miss Schill’s splendid leadership, and, second, the work of the Acmeans in getting the classes “lined up” and ready to make their entrance, as if run by clockwork. The Silver Cup Til IS is the first year a real silver cup has ever been given to the class making the highest record in gymnasium for the year. Points in posture, attendance at sport hour. As in gymnasium, winning of the captain hall, Newcomb, and baseball tournaments, the winning of the gym contest and swimming contest make up the requirements for the winning of the cup. Unfortunately the winning team cannot be announced at the time the Bisbila goes to the press.
