iz' This life is as a journey, which has for its goal the attainment of our
5 highest ideals. VVe are all struggling toward this goalg each has his battles to
tight, and his temptations to overcome. Every day's record tells how bravely we
have faced and conquered the trials of life, and how well we have fulfilled our
duties. Some of our records are good, and some are bad: but the record for
,vt which we strive is the Record True. As we study the lives of men, we single
1' out some who, we say. have made true records, and some whom we call failures.
Y Now our records may not be written in a book, but they are none the less
1 significant, for they are written in the Eternal Book of Life. The Record True
is the enduring, commendable one. It signifies all that is good. pure, noble, and
lovely in life. This Record True is not to be attained very easily, howeverg
, for, indeed, life contains a full measure of hardships, disappointments, and sor-
'S rows to overshadow its joys and happiness: and so, we stumble sometimes as
I we climb the pathway toward the ideal Record. The great thinker and poet,
8 Henry Van Dyke, has given us a guide whereby we can direct our footsteps in
'- our journey toward this Record True, in a little poem which reads:
"Four things a man must learn to do,
If he would make his record true:
, To think without confusion clearlyg
y To love his fellowman sincerelyg
N To act from honest motives purely 5
S To trust in God and Heaven securely."
- This little poem is as a compass which points toward the Guiding Star,
no matter what storms beset our path of Life.
"To think without confusion clearly." Are we acquiring and still acquiring
.Q such power? We have a splendid opportunity to acquire it in school,-in fact
f this is the one goal to be reached in acquiring an education-to be able to think,
ill and to work out the greater problems which we shall meet in life. A clear brain
R is one of the most valuable assets that we can possessg for it is the quick mind
that grasps all opportunities and solves all difficulties. And this treasure each
of us must earn for himself, because it is a fortune that cannot come to us
, through inheritance alone. These are the years when we must spend our time
3 well to develop this brain power, if we expect to get the best out of life.
H Self cultivation is one of the noblest instincts of humanity, but the cultiva-
lg tion of our highest powers comes only through service to our fellowmen. The
poet says We must love our fellowmen sincerely, if we would have our names
registered in the Record True. Civilization depends largely upon the trust of
men in each other. VVe should have that sincere trust and love of our fellowmen,
which Sam Walter Foss expresses in his poem, "The House by the Side of the
Road," when he says, "Let me live in my house by the side of the road and be a
s-ug-+g.,m-'.:."-.ue-,ern -'igqg 1 D,-5.-1+-'Il"P':'T""
E4:' Q - ,vga-ef
an tl 4.4
E ' .,
friend to man." Our fellowmen need our love and our confidence and we need
theirs, for we are all dependent upon one another-bound together by indissoluble
ties of duty and usefulness.
On the other hand. what are the clever mind and love of fellowmen worth
if one has not learned "To act from honest motives purely P" This determines
the worth of the other two. In it is the secret of our actions, and men estimate
our individual worth by it. The clear brain devises to no purpose and the tender
heart loves in vain if the motive behind all is not honest. Our motives should
be always sincere, unselfish, honest, and pure.
This honesty and purity of motives is heightened when one has learned
"To trust in God and Heaven securely." Each law of the Record True is hinged
upon the other 3 but the greatest is this last. for out of it come all the others.
We, of the class of nineteen hundred and sixteen. wish to acknowledge
our deep gratitude to our teachers, and to all who have been influential in bringing
us one step farther toward the Ideal. May every one of us be found marching
bravely along Life's journey, striving day by day to make our Records True.

We bring this hatchet, honored, old,-
So often has its tale been told,
So often has its fame been sung,
Through many years by many a tongue!
While eons past the dove has ruled,
Thy warlike temper much has cooledg
Of blood red stains upon thy face,
These many years have found no trace.
How brightly gleams thy blade so true
And glitters forth with steel blue hue,
As Mars, the fierce, with battle cry
Calls humans out to do or dieg
And all the world is set aflame
To win revenge or glorious fame,
Must thou forsake thy peaceful path,
And wreak thy vengeance and our wrath
Upon that junior class so bold,
Our foes from ancient times of old?
Thy blade must sink to rise no more
Tn flaming Hoods of junior gore.
Oh, Junior man, I dare you here!
To show your face so pale with fearg
I dare you here to reasons give,
Why in our place you fain would liveg
Why members of your barbarous race,
Should have the right to take our place.
My tall junior lad
Pray tell me, bedad
For what good reason you're here. -

From what kind of a foe,

Then to its history we'll be true
And pass it on with greater fame,
With honor and untarnished fame.

With the aid of the X-ray, the slide-rule, the adding machine, the seismo-
graph and a tenacious determination to adhere strictly to the truth, these statistics
of the class of 1916 have been riotously compiled and are boldly submitted to
the long suffering public.
Comprising our class are 89 unique individuals of varied ages, heights
and weights. Of this number, 57 are of the feminine gender and 32 fall into the
masculine class. The race for the honor of being youngest almost resulted in a
tie between a boy and a girl. The boy. however, won by two days. At present
writing he boasts of having survived 16 years, 5 months and 7 days. The average
age of the class is 18 years, 3 months, 29 days, I7 hours, 47 minutes, and 56.4
The actual size of the class can be more fully appreciated when one con-
templates the remarkable fact that the members standing shoulder to shoulder
could entirely encircle the earth at the poles. The total weight, however, is not as
great as might be expected in such an unusual class, since it is offset to a great
extent by featherbrains.
The individual celebrities of the class are both noticeable and numerous.
Without doubt, Delmar Allman leads this procession. First he is a man, second,
he is the only mang and third, he is all man. For any further information con-
cerning this extraordinary personage, we would refer you to Blake's History
of the World, volume 9, page 314, under the heading "Virginia Leads".
But Delmar is not the only marvel. One member of our class has the
distinction of being the happiest man in Urbana. Though originally christened
Fred Ernest Smith, this wonder has moved and lived during four years of high
school under the appellation of "Zeke." Never in the history of his time has Zeke
been known to have a grouch, and especially in class meetings, in which class
colors are the chief bone of contention, is Zeke's sweetly smiling countenance in
In literary and oratorical spheres our class is well represented. Such
names as Lincicome and Bowditch will go down to posterity. The list of a dozen
platform stars, however, is easily headed by Gladys Woody. This fact is ex-
plained by Miss Woody's colossal height, and her .preference for the loftiest of
ln decided contrast with Bessie Winchester, our scandalous cut-up, is
Archie Albee. His angelic expression and loving disposition almost impel us
to feel for his wings.
Guthrie Piersel has proved an effective class tonic. No matter how black
are the clouds caused by heartless instructor, flunked exams, or mischievous
mei-4-3.,...s-sims. s J.-f'1+'3'

pranks, a passing word with Guthrie, or even a glimpse of his loquacious counten-
ance, will bring back the sunshine.
Our class is honored with the membership of an unusual number of mar-
ried couples. Fully a dozen have openly shown their romantic status, and since
leap year began all the girls, at least, have entertained high matrimonial hopes.
Among the miscellaneous properties of the class may be found the follow-
ing: eleven big heads, several hundred pairs of screaming socks, II47 hairpins,
four red heads, seventeen public secrets, 723 shrieking ties, three normal brains,
178 assorted feet, and one criminal record.

On September 6, 1912, one hundred and twenty-five timid but ambitious
Freshmen made their first acquaintance with the joys and sorrows of high school
life. As this class was progressive and was possessed of a spirit which manifested
itself in a desire to do something, a class meeting was soon held, and officers
were elected. Dewey Conkwright was chosen President, Bernice Martin, Secre-
taryg Earl Miller, treasurer. and Henry Mosier. Historian.
Winter passed and spring came with astonishing quickness, for the new
"freshies" were completely absorbed in living up to their title of full-blooded
members of Urbana High School.
As soon as nice weather came, Clyde Conrad wasielected captain of the
class baseball team, and a team was produced which gave a good account of itself.
One memorable event of this year was the winning of the contest for the
Charleston representative by Gladys VVoody. She is the only person who has
ever achieved that honor as a Freshman. 1
A never-to-be-forgotten picnic was held at St. Joseph, late in the spring.
Final examinations came, and those who had been called Freshmen were now
ready to enroll under the name of Sophomores, in the next autumn.
Soon after the re-opening of school in September, an election was held,
at which Jeannette Busey was elected President: Earl Miller, Vice-president:
Bessie Marsh, Secretary-treasurerg and Hope Hixon, Historian, This year, the
Class of '16 began to contribute to High School enterprises. for Hobart, Conrad,
and Bowers made names for themselves in athletics, and those interested in
Literary pursuits succeeded in rendering one of the class programs given before
the Literary and Debating Society. I
This spring, Ernest Davies was chosen to captain the class baseball team,
and although the championship was not attained, the baseball boys made a record
to be proud of.
As was the Freshman year. the Sophomore year of the Class of '16 was
closed with a picnic at which everyone had a great time and lots to eat. This
year the class went to Homer Park.
Gfficers were again elected at the opening of the new school year, which
found us Juniors. Henry Mosier was elected President: Hazel Porterheld,
Vice-president, Everett Scott, Treasurer, and Russell Bowditch. Secretary and
Historian. It was during this year that the new High School building was
completed, and none of its occupants were prouder of our new Temple of
Learning than were the members of the Class of 'I6.
Shortly after the opening of the second semester a class meeting was held,
at which Vera Jones was elected to give the Junior response to the Hatchet
Oration at Commencement, and Delmar Allman was chosen as track manager.

It was decided at this meeting that all class athletes should receive caps with
the numerals '16 upon them. Later, at a meeting of the boys, Lowell Maddock
was chosen as captain of the class baseball team, and Ralph Eaton was chosen
It was during this year that the Class of '16 lost one of its worthiest and
most energetic members. Kieth Fowler, one of the best known and most highly
esteemed members of the class, passed away at his home on West Clark Street,
after a short illness. His death was deeply mourned by the whole school.
Many important high school ofhces were held by Juniors. Among them
were Dewey Conkwright, editor-in-chief of the Echo, and treasurer of the
Literary and Debating Societyg Ernest Davies, president of the Literary and
Debating Society, Delmar Allman, manager of the high school track team, and
one of the best track and football men in the state, Fred Smith. member of the
debating team and of the Echo staff: the Echo staff had three other Juniors
on its roll, Henry Mosier, Ruth Birdzell, and Russell Bowditch.
The Junior year of the Class of '16 was closed with a picnic at Homer
Park, given in honor of the departing Seniors.
The class began its Senior year with just one hundred members. At a
class meeting held early in the fall, Delmar Allman was chosen President, Tressa
Gordon, Vice-presidentg Fred Smith, Secretary-treasurer, and Russell Bowditch.
Historian. This year we contributed a large number of men to the high school
football team, Allman, Hobart, lessen, Lovingfoss, Stearns, Golden, and Conrad
represented the class in this line of athletic activity.
A number of parties were held during the winter, the most notable one
being a leap-year party given by the Senior girls. At a meeting of the class held
in November, the Rosemary staff was elected. Russell Bowditch was chosen
editor-in-chief, Robert Kegley business manager, Ivan Laylield art editor, Dorothy
Reeves circulation manager, Dewey Conkwright roast editor, and Ruth Renner
The Senior Class had a large representation in "Bulbul", the comic
operetta given by the high school in March. Leading parts were taken by Dewey
Conkwright, Stanley Golden, and Henry Mosier.
In Delmar Allman, the Class of '16 possesses an athlete and scholar worthy
of much note. "Del" has a collection of medals, banners, and cups, which would
keep a gold and silversmith supplied with material for a long while, He took
two firsts in the Stagg Meet held at Chicago in the spring of 1915, and one first
in the indoor meet held at Northwestern University in the spring of 1916. "Del"
is an all-round scholar and athlete whose equal would be hard to find.
In its Senior year, the Class of '16 had as its members the editor of the
Echo, captain of the football team, president of Alpha Sigma Rho, president of
the Literary and Debating Society, captain of the track team, six members of the
Echo staff, and four members of the two debating teams.

Q The class baseball team was captained this year by Ralph Eaton.
In the Interclass track meet held April 13. the Seniors took nearly all of
'Q the first places, and won the meet with 77 points.
The class poet, Ruth Green, was selected by competition, and Archie Albee
s' was elected to give the class prophecy at Commencement, Hazel Porterfield the
class will, and Lois Beeby the class statistics. Lola Cremeans won the valedictory,
with an average of over 95, and Dorothy Talbot won the salutatory.
. And so we come to the end of our four short years in high school. We
'ff have learned that success comes only as the result of hard and conscientious
W work. We have learned to face disappointment as well as success. May we
S carry with us through the remainder of our lives the lessons which we have
learned during the happy years we have spent in high school!

K ggisiurg nf Ulla!-5 of 1917
On the sixth day of September, 1913, a large class of energetic boys and
girls enrolled as would-be Freshmen on the records of old Thornburn. Not
long afterward a class meeting was held in the assembly room and the following
ofhcers were elected:
John MacGillivray ......... ............... P resident
Richard Gossard ........ ......... V ice-president
Ruth Yantis ......... ........... S ecretary
Harold Glenn ......... .............. T reasurer

As curious Freshmen, we entered into all the different activities of the
school. In the spring a class baseball team was organized, which started a fight
for the Inter-class Championship.
On April 2, a large class meeting was held in the famous English IV room,
to select class colors. Maroon and gray were chosen by the vote of a large
On April 17, the class. as a whole. gave an entertainment for the Literary
Society. The assembly room was beautifully decorated with the class colors
and the entertainment added no little glory to the class name.
In june, the final examinations being over, the "green ones" immediately
became the "all-knowing" and experienced Sophomores.
The Class of ,I7 returned to Thornburn on September 28, 1914, and in
the month of November elected new officers :
Douglas Fay ................................... ............... P resident
Virginia Sale ....... .......... V ice-president
Harold Glenn ....... ............... S ecretary
Bryant Mason ......... .............. T reasurer
Dewey Becker ........
Esther Barnes ,....................................... Thistle Reporter
In football, John MacGillivray represented the Sophomore class on the
nrst team. Douglas Fay made the 'Varsity baseball team, and in the Inter-
scholastic tennis tournament he showed great ability, easily outclassing his col-
leagues. Paul Van Doren and John Vaughn represented the class on the track
team, John Mclfammon tried out for the third annual Miller Medal Contest.
Rex Saifer and Louis Fleck were members of the Echo Staff. Members of the
class also took part in the High School operetta, "Sylvia",
Cn january 8, 1915, we again entertained the Literary and Debating
Society, being the only class to perform this social duty. The event was declared
one of the most successful entertainments of the year. A class party was
held March 20, 1915.

li Thus we came to the end of our Sophomore year, proud of the fact that
'Q' ours was the first class pennant raised over the new High School.
s When the Class of 1917 entered the new High School as Juniors. Fate
seemed to smile upon it-in fact, Mr. Flaningam did. which is better, and we
knew at once that the coming year held success for ns. In the fall, Bryant
Mason was elected President: Mahala McGehee, Vice-president, Virginia Sale,
'Q' Secretaryg Clara Nicolet, Treasurerg and Esther Barnes. Historian.
Y In keeping up our social as well as our school life, the class had a great
V many parties-the most prominent of which was a Masquerade Hallowe'en
S Party, given in the High School auditorium, on Gctober 23, 1915.
Juniors held three of the five offices of the Literary and Debating Society
S this year-among the officers are: Esther Barnes, Vice-presidentg Paul Van
Doren, Treasurerg and Virginia Sale. Secretary. We also boast of having three
3' members on the Echo Staff, Rex Saffer, Harold Glenn, and john MacGillivray.
T The Class of '17 won the Inter-class Debate held in November, under the
, auspices of the Literary and Debating Society.
1. Harold Glenn was unanimously elected by the class to give the Junior
response to the Hatchet Oration at Commencement.
At the second annual Stunt Show, held in the High School auditorium,
, February 10, 1916, the juniors captured the prize. The name of the stunt was
? "The Evolution". The committee in charge was Julia johnson, Chairmang Helen
w Easterday, John MacGillivray, Floyd Prewitt. and Harold Glenn.
'Q The Juniors were well represented in the High School operetta, "Bulbul".
1 Dorothy Gernand and Rex Saffer were in the cast and many others of our num-
ber were in the chorus.
Virginia Sale and Harold Glenn were chosen to represent the High School
, in the Oratorical contest at Charleston in May.
'f' Thus ends the three years History,
N Of the 1917 Class.
R We're ready now for our fourth year

glilisinrg nf the Qllzrss uf 1918
and down the halls of Old Thornburn, trying to find their class TOOIHS amid the
-general hustle and bustle. There were 150 of them-84 boys and 66 girls. It
was delightfully convenient for the Freshmen that we moved into the new build-
ing early in the school year, because the upper classnien also lost their way in
the corridors here. which fact created a bond of sympathy between the Freshmen
and their superiors!
These Freshmen soon lost their "greenness," however, and began to make
the school realize that they were important people, after all. "Boob" Childers
and Lee Pettys soon distinguished themselves on the 'Varsity football team, and
our class won the championship in the inter-class baseball series.
, Because of the confusion of the first semester, the Freshmen did not hold
'if their class meeting for the election of officers until the second semester. At that
V time they elected:
S Roy Childers ....... .................... P resident
- Avis Woody ................ .................. lv 'ice-president
Elsie Kirkpatrick ........... ................ S ecretary-Historian
Don Mason ........................................................ Treasurer
.,. Olive and Green were chosen for the class colors.
T On April 30, the Literary and Debating Society held its first annual
U Stunt Show. The Freshman stunt consisted of a short series of dances represent-
S ing the historical periods of the United States.
- T he people who represented the High School in the operetta, "Sylvia",
were Avis Woody, and Elizabeth Beuthein, in the cast, and Helen Speas, Ted
Swartz, and Lee Pettys in the chorus.
-4' On the last day of school, the Freshmen, with the experience of a whole
year behind them, parted from their newly made friends. Most of us were now
X exalted to the rank of Sophomores. The Sophomores of September 8, 1915,
N were easily distinguished by the looks of cold disdain which they cast upon the
Freshmen who scampered about the halls. But along with the hauteur there
went a look of determination which indicated that the Class of '18 would be one
J, of the best which has ever left Urbana High School.
+ The first class meeting of the year was the occasion of the election of
x these officers:
L Lee Pettys ............................................................ President
Don Mason ......... ....... V ice-president

The class now consisted of II7 members, 57 of whom were boys and 60
were girls. Roy Childers and Lee Pettys were the two best Sophomores on the
football team, and, indeed, two of the best players on the team. Many other
Sophomores, namely, Elmer Green, Vivian Green, Don Mason, and Herbert
Johnston, did excellent work on the team.
As the tendency toward athletics was very pronounced, not among the
boys alone, but also among the girls, the latter organized a basketball team, and,
because of their skillful playing, won the inter-class championship. The team
was composed of Elizabeth Beuthein Ccaptainj, Louise Whitaker, Grace Baldwin,
Minnie Funk, Lillian Rash, Helen Somers, and Pauline Knipp.
A series of interclass debates having been planned, the president ap-
pointed a committee composed of Lee Pettys, William Manny, Russell Pollitt,
and Edith Blunt. The debaters chosen to represent the class were Russell Pollitt,
William Manny, and Raymond Singer. The Sophomores were compelled to
acknowledge the supremacy of the juniors, in this contest, however.
Equally interesting with the athletic and literary side of class life ranks
the social side. The class showed a remarkable interest in social life at the Hrst
Sophomore party, held December 18, in the high school building. The committee
which, by its careful planning, made the party such a perfect success, was com-
posed of Elizabeth Beuthein, Esmond Sutcliffe, and Louise Whitaker. One of
the features of the evening was the presentation of class numerals to the girls
and boys who had participated in any class athletics. The numerals were of
orange felt, and displayed the artistic designing of Arnold Emch.
The Literary Society held its Second Annual Stunt Show on February
Io, 1916. The committee in charge of the Sophomore stunt was Mary Webster,
Avis Woody, Kathryne Watson, Evan Davis. and Russell Pollitt. The stunt,
which was a modern musical comedy, was considered very clever. g
In the operetta, "Bulbul", Elizabeth Beuthien and Donald Erb represented
the class in the cast, and Helen Speas, Louise Whitaker, Avis Woody, Myrtle
Strikland, Elmer Green, Esmond Sutcliffe, Arnold Emch, Roy Childers, Russell
Stamey, Ted Swartz, Lee Pettys, and Raymond Singer represented the class in
Next year, when the Sophomores come back as Juniors, perhaps they will
have acquired the dignity of Juniors and Seniors. and we know that the history
of the coming year will be filled with many new glories. S0 with hopeful, happy
hearts, the class of '18 stands ready to draw back the curtains of the future.

On the morning of September 8, 191 5. one hundred and thirty-eight eager,
inquisitive Freshmen ascended the steps to the Urbana High School for the first
time as part and parcel of that institution. During the first few weeks, the most
difficult lesson which we had to master was that of assuming the manners and
customs of high school life, though little did we say of these struggles, to even
our most intimate friends. As we were an energetic class and anxious to be well
organized as soon as possible, a meeting was called on September 29 for the
purpose of nominating class officers. The results of the election, which occurred
the following day, were:
Charles Amerman ....... ............ P resident
Tom Garman ............ ............... V ice-president
Dorothy Burres ........ ....................... S ecretary-Treasurer
Frances Cottrell .................................................. Historian
In the meantime, those members of the class who were inclined toward ath-
letics had determined not to neglect that side of our high school life. and accord-
ingly several tried out for football. Robert Delap, as a substitute for the first team,
proved himself well fitted for his position. Tom Garman, Elmer Burke, Charles
Amerman, Walter Gill, and Robert Blair made the second team. Nor were the
girls to be outdone by the boys. for was it not among the Freshmen girls that
basketball enthusiasm originated? Though we did not win the championship, the
team. which as a whole was undersize, played a very interesting game. With
such splendid material as this, we are looking forward to winning no small
amount of honor next year in the various branches of athletics.
And so we progressed, until after a Hal1owe'en party, a skating party, a
literary program, and the Interclass debates, we came to the less pleasurable events
of the first semester, the semester examinations.
The beginning of the second semester found us laboring with increased
vigor and enthusiasm. Each person held a firm determination to become a Sopho-
more the next autumn. As a class we presented a stunt, quite fittingly entitled
"Verdant Green". The new semester also found some of our members busily en-
gaged in preparing for the Stunt Show and the operetta. "Bulbul". We were well
represented in "Bulbul", Isabel Todd being "the Queen of the cast," and Fannie
Scott. Hazel Leonard. Claradehl VVallace, Charles Amerman, and Elmer Burke in
the chorus. During this semester a meeting was held to select class colors. Old
rose and silver were chosen. -
Throughout the year we have received oratorical honors. Herbert Harmi-
son ably represented us in the Interclass debates and gained a place as alternate
on the debating team. He also won second place in the try-out for the Charleston
Oratorical contest. Several others of our number have also shown much ability
along this line.

As the warm spring days came and everyone felt that old hunger for base-
ball surge over him, our boys immediately responded to its call by electing Verne
Hoag captain of the class team.
There is a certain feeling of satisfaction in knowing that a thing is well
done. We are not self-satisfied, moreover we know we have made many mis-
takes, but we of the Class of ,IQ feel that we have done our best to stand for the
things which in high school are worthy to be rememfbered and to gain a firm
foundation on which to build the three years which are to follow.

Ted trudged whistling up the winding road, his bare toes wriggled com-
fortably in the thick warm dust. and his brown fingers clutched the moist remnant
of a ginger cookie. He had never been more at peace with the.whole fragrant
world in all his eleven years. just then a bit of bright ribbon fluttered at his feet.
He shoved it cautiously with one toe and then sniffed contemptuously, "Those
homely little Alden kids l" he said to himself.
"I have never seen a time yet when one or the other of 'em wasn't trailin'
a doll aroun'." I suppose they'd call that a hat or some other such foolishness.
Girls make me tired anyway. A man can't be bothered with their silliness."
He reached carefully into his pocket and brought out a limp, dazed-
"I'll show Dick my find, and then ask him about that party," he continued
soberly, "Hank Smithers said he was there last night with the Alden kids'
cousin. That's awful! Dick told me himself that he'd sworn off on women for
good, an' now he's started beauin' an Alden girl, I'll give him a piece of my mind,
that's what I will l"
Ted hurried faster as he approached a low, white house, set far back
under tall elms. A long path led from the road past a thick clump of cedar trees.
Ted pushed back a branch and entered a cozy little nook entirely surrounded by
the dense evergreens. This was Ted's and Dick's special meeting place. No one
else had ever been there, so far as they knew. Dick, who had come home from
college in June, had found Ted there one sunny afternoon, and since then a strong
friendship had sprung up between the two. Dick was Ted's hero. I-Ie played
football at college, and he knew everything there was to be known about toads.
Ted was Dick's good friend-"a bully little kid," he said.
Ted stretched himself out comfortably on the soft grass and whistled
guardedly. In a moment he whistled again, and then the branches parted and
a tall, brown fellow threw himself down at Ted's side.
"Hello, kid," he said cheerfully. "You're early today. I haven't got my
work done yet. It isn't four o'clock."
Ted grinned. "Got somethin' to show you," he said, as he again ex-

thumb and fore-finger and held it accusingly before Dick's eyes. Dick blushed
painfully and cleared his throat.
"Aw, say, kid," he began.
"Now, lookie here, Dick," began Ted, bitingly, "I've always thought that
you were my truest friend. an' it was had enough to hear that you'd gone to a
party with a-girl. Now, here you've been, bringin' her into our own sun-parlor,
an' if she hadn't lost her handkerchief, like as not you'd never told me about it
at all. An' one of those silly Aldens at that-or at least a cousin of theirs! I've
a mind to-" He stopped abruptly as he glanced at Dick's face. "What did you
ever do it for Dick F" he asked, softening a little, "You're not goin' to beau that
girl from now on, are you ?"
Dick gulped. "I'm not, kid," he said miserably, "But its not because I
don't want to, honestly, it isn't. You don't know her, Ted, or you'd not blame
me. But she don't seem to-to-to4care for my company any more," he fm-
Ted stared dazedly. Was this the same Dick that had sworn that he'd
never have anything to do with girls, not more than two months ago?
"You see, kid," Dick continued slowly, "I knew her at college. She's
awful smart, and the finest girl I ever saw. Her name's Alice. Don't you think
that's pretty? But she-she said I couldn't possibly go over any more. I don't
know what in the world is the matter. I-I guess all women are fickle."
Ted's chest swelled, and his hands unconsciously sought his pockets.
"Take my advice, Dick," he said, from his heights of wisdom "and leave women
alone. You're too young to be worryin' about 'em," he added, pompously.
"Richard!-oh, Richard! Richard !" called a voice from the house, "Can
you come here a minute ?"
"It's mother," said Dick, furtively thrusting the little handkerchief into
his pocket. "Come on with me, kid, and see what she wants."
"There's a little girl here to see you," said his mother as she opened the
door. Ted grunted contemptuously, but he followed his friend to the house.
A blue-eyed, pink-cheeked, little girl was demurely smoothing her short
pink skirts as she settled herself on the couch. She blushed shyly when she saw
Dick and Ted coming into the room.
"My sister Alice sent me over with this," she said bashfully, as she thrust
a note into Dick's hands.
Ted stared at her. He'd never seen such a girl as this before, he thought.
Surely she wasn't any relation to those silly little Aldens. She surely had some
hair-and such a way about her! Ted pulled himself up with a jerk. He was
a man, and in all his life he had never had any dealings with women!
'Tm Alice's sister," shyly announced the vision in pink. "Who're you?"
Ted gulped. "I'm Ted Thomp-" he began sternly, "Say, you're not any
relation to the Alden's, are you P"

"Not really," beamed the angel, "but we're real good friends and we al-
ways say we're cousins."
Ted smiled radiantly. "I didn't think you were," he confided. "You
don't look like 'em. You're-you're-" he blushed painfully and looked sheep-
ishly around. Why-Dick wasn't there! Was he answering that note? Was
he going to start beauin' that girl after all? Not if he could help it, Ted thought,
as he started out of the room.
"Oh, don't go away." begged the pink angel from the sofa. "I don't want
to wait all alone."
"I've got to see Dick a minute," began Ted. "I'll-I'll be back in-" he
stopped short, helpless under the pleading gaze.
"I knew you wouldn't go," she cried gaily. "Your friend's going to an-
swer Alice's note. She said he would.-My name's Marian.-Why don't you
come over and sit down ?"
Ted was conscious of a very strange fluttering sensation in the region of
his heart, one such as he had never felt before. He told himself sternly that he
was a M an, but he could not deny the pleading vision in pink.
In an amazingly short time Dick came back with a sealed envelope in his
hand. "I'm very much obliged to you, Marian," he said, as he handed her the
note and opened the door. "Come back again some day, won't you ?"
"Oh, I'm coming," the pink angel smiled superbly at Ted as she started
down the path.
Ted faced Dick soberly. "Now you've gone an' answered that note", he
began. "I tell you-leave women alone."
"Hold up there. kid," laughed Dick. "Some day you'll say that back-
Ted sniffed disdainfully. "I've got to go home," he announced curtly.
"I'll see you later, but I hope that you'll get over this beauin' idea pretty soon."
The sun was far down in the west when Ten started home. "She sure has
got some hair an' some eyes," he told himself. "'She ain't silly like most girls,
either, an' she don't keep her finger in her mouth like the Alden kids do. I-I
wonder if she knows where to Find strawberries. Maybe there's some in the
pasture right near her home, but she don't know how to find 'em. I guess I'1l
go up that way an' see. I don't want to see her, of course, but then-maybe
there's strawberries there."
It was growing dusk when Dick started whistling up the road, a book
under one arm, a cushion under the other. The pee-wees were calling softly
through the trees and a big bullfrog was croaking lazily in the tall grass. "Fine
night," Dick said to himself as he turned the corner. Then he suddenly stopped,
face to face with Ted.
What's the matter, kid ?" he asked wonderingly. "Your mother called up
an hour ago to know if yon'd started home yet."

Ted gulped miserably. "I was just huntin' strawberries up in the pas-

Dick put his hand on the boy's shoulder. "What's the matter, kid," he
U asked sympathetically. "What's happened ?" gf
S "Aw-well," explained Ted dejectedly, "I was showin' Marion where to Q

if girls-but she-she says she don't want me to come back any more. I-I guess," T
he sighed mournfully. "I guess all women are fickle."
X "Look here, kid," said Dick condescendingly, from his lofty heights of 5
wisdom, "take my advice and leave women alone! You're too young to be
worryin' about them !"

7 Here and there in the shadowy woods is a vivid dash of color made by
. some wild red lily which has caught a stray sunbeam in its glowing cup. In one
little corner of a New England woods, an especially noticeable wood lily reared '
Q herself far above any of her neighbors. Tall and stately, with queen-like dignity
she swayed and rocked in the gentle wooing arms of the soft summer breeze.
-1 She was the pride and the envy of the cool, shady, little dell, as she swayed and
V rocked back and forth. back and forth, now bending, now rising, her slender
Y stem yielding to the caprices of her lover, the gallant south wind, who so tenderly
i courted her. Her flower petals, a deep orange red, spotted with purple, nodded
gaily on her graceful stem, as the busy bees buzzed greedily around her, in the
Q hope of gaining a taste of the fragrant nectar at the base of her six narrowly
'gn clawed sepals. They were disappointed, however, for a huge butterfly Hoated
f lazily through the heavily perfumed air' and delicately alighted upon the threshold
of the bell-like cup.
g Then all was confusion, for had not the master returned? True, Black-
' Swallow-Tail was father of this large, handsome fellow, and was called master by
the gentle lady of the house, Aphrodite-but whoever thought of him as issuing
orders or stating wants? He was merely Black-Swallow Tail, handsome in his

XY dered by two rows of sapphire-blue spots.
if His wife, Aphrodite, had been a beauty and a bell of Butterfly town when
X her gallant lord had courted her in their youth, and she still showed her beauty,
E mellowed and ripened by time. Her wings were tawny yellow, with black mark-
ings, and on the under side of the hind wings were the pearl-white spots that had
J gained for her the name of the Coquette in her younger days, and which had
'Q' become changed, with the passing years, to the Mother-of-Pearls. by which name
'J she was now known throughout the shadowy vale.
R But to return to the master of the house-the young son and heir of Black-
Swallow-Tail and the Mother-of-Pearls! This gaudy fellow was greatly agitated,

"He is a very distinguished gentleman, and it would grieve me if you did
not treat him courteouslyj' gently rebuked the mother.
"Pardon, pardon, mother!" The son was truly sorry, for he loved his
"But do tell me," he begged again, "Blue Wing, I believe you said she
was called P"
"Yes, Blue Wing," the mother was tenderly reminiscent now. "Blue
VVing," she murmured softly.
She was back in the time of her youth, the time of nervous flutterings
and delicious thrills. She remembered her chum, the mother of Blue Wing,
whom she had visited once in her Southern home. Her son recalled her to the
present by petulantly exclaiming,
"O, I say, mater, what's she like ?"
"Her wings are blue," she commenced smilingly, "A wonderful azure
"Ah l" breathed her son.
"-with white fringes," she continued, sympathetically, "pearl grey, with
black spots on the underside."
The boy listened eagerly, "Go ou !"
His mother laughed, "The rest, my son, you must find out for yourself.
And," she continued, noting his crestfallen looks, "she comes by the Southern
Wind Express, which is due in ten seconds by the dandelion clock," she then
laughed softly and gleefully at his speedy departure for the Foxglove Terminal.
Yellow-Tiger-Swallow-Tail was conscious of his beauty as he waited im-
patiently for the arrival of the Southern Wind Express.
His cream yellow wings were large and perfectly formed, and the delicate
color was brought out by their borders and stripes. He carried a dragon-fly
cane. and idly clipped the heads of the dog-weed, that lay along the sides of the
"Azure-blue, azure, satin. blue," his mother had said, "with white fringes,
pearl gray, with black spots on the Linder side."
He pictured a demure little butterfly maiden, with cast-down eyes and
ready blushes-a beauty still unaware of her powers.
- He planned what he would say to her and how he would act, and he
laughed gaily at the thought of her bewilderment when she should finally arrive
in this great city. Truly. he would be different from the shiftless, southern fel-
lows she was accustomed to meet at her home. And he planned to impress her
with his grand and kingly airs.
An amused laugh at his side startled him out of his day-dreams and a
musical voice brought himi back to realities suddenly by inquiring sweetly, yet

with a slight touch of mirth, if this were Butterfly town, and if he knew where
Black-Swallow-Tail! How long it had been since anyone had ever thought
of calling the stately Wood Lily Mansion, "Black-Swallow-Tail's." The fold of
Butterfly town always spoke of it as Yellow-Tiger's home.
He laughed curtly. O yes! He knew. That was his house, he said.
Could he render the lady any assistance?
"I'm only Blue Wing," she said demurely, "but here's father. You'll
know him, of course. He's Papilio Philenorf'
Turning to look in the direction of her gaze, he beheld a rather warm and
crumpled but, nevertheless, an imposing and dignilied elderly gentleman. But,
great-grass-hoppers! could this bold young woman be the demure maiden of
whom his mother had told him and of whom he had been dreaming so deeply
a few moments ago! Impossible! Why, this young woman was entirely self-
possessed, and seemed not the least impressed by his regal appearance, in fact,
he half-believed she was laughing at him.
This thought, though he thrust it from him, persisted, as he, remembering
his duties as host, hastily seized her traveling bag. which was made of two wild
rose petals pinned together with an evergreen needle.
During the ride home on the Bluejay Bus, he became even more astounded.
His cousin seemed not the least impressed by the unique beauty of the cool,
dewy woodlands, but calmly announced that at home the violets were a hundred
times more plentiful than they appeared to be here-and they were of a far deeper
and richer hue, too, she declared.
Once, when he, sure of victory, called her attention to a patch of pale
animonae, she shrugged her dainty wings, and grandly replied that at home there
were fields and fields of buckwheat, and that she saw none here! Altogether
Yellow-Tiger was sorely tried and his temper was greatly ruffled. It was with a
heart full of thankfulness and great relief that he prepared to hand his cousin
from the bus, at the entrance to his home, but he was again surprised, and greatly
chagrined, to have this willful' little lady say grandly to the Blue Bird, "Fly on,
jay. I do not wish to walk up the avenue."
When finally they had reached the portico, formed by two of the lance-like
leaves of the Wood Lily, it was with great pleasure that Yellow-Tiger deposited
his charge and her father upon the shady veranda and, leaving them in the care
of Black-Swallow-Tail and his wife, flew hastily away.
Straight to his favorite spot he flew, his thinking place, he called it.
Everyone was forbidden to disturb him when he chose to isolate himself there,
and it was with great relief that he settled himself lazily in his chosen retreat.
It was a beautiful spot, this resort of Yellow-Tiger's, a snug corner in a mossy
stone, surrounded by fragrant ferns and delicately tinted Howers. '

Decidedly, this Blue Wing was perplexing, and certainly he needed to
formulate a new plan of conduct toward her. It would be the utmost folly to
attempt the audacious manner toward this tantalizing creature of the teasing
voice and laughing eyes that he had planned to assume toward the shy maiden
he had supposed her to be.
As he sat lazily sunning himself and brooding over the little foreign
princess, who had come to spoil his life, for he was sure that she would manage
to wreck his happiness as she had already wrecked his peace of mind, he was
aroused by a mocking gleeful laugh of recognition.
"Here you are, you naughty boy, come home immediately! Dinner's
ready and the Mother-of-Pearls wants you to hasten home. I volunteered to find
you and bring you back to the family hearthstone, so come along now. Besides
you are not gallant to leave the ladies so. One would almost suppose that you had
been guilty of losing your temper," she concluded, mischievously, as the sulky
beauty followed her obiedently and silently.
Needless to say, Yellow-Tiger did not enjoy his carefully prepared and
tastefully served dinner. The buttercup-honey was bitter and the wild-flower
jelly was even less to his taste. The presumptuous little guest led the conversation,
and introduced such topics as bee labor and the prevention of cruelty to the dog
berries, topics concerning which he cared nothing and knew less. He was em-
barrassed by her continuous questioning, and annoyed by his ignorance. Although
he tried to bluff her, he was always caught up and his ignorance was advertised,
to his great discomfiture. '
The little vixen, as he soon came to call Blue Wing-in his mind-was so
loving to her father, so kind and courteous to Black-Swallow-Tail, and so de-
lightful and affectionate to Aphrodite that Yellow-Tiger was charmed with her in
spite of himself. Before dinner was over he had fallen madly in love with Blue
No one would ever have suspected him of it, though, for he was sharp and
cross. His mother solicitiously inquired if he were ill, but Blue Wing only
laughed at him-and toward the little lady he maintained a sulky silence.
He spent the afternoon calling upon a Sweet Pea, in a nearby garden,
and bored the patient flower terribly, by a long recital of his woes.
As he was returning home something blue, azure blue, appeared among the
tall fern leaves. It was still and quite close to the ground. Yellow-Tiger hastened
his flight and his heart skipped a beat or two as he approached the something blue,
could it be,-was it possible-that this tiny blue speck, lying so quietly on the
ground, was his vivacious little lady love? He flew faster. It was possible!
Before him, limp, and apparently lifeless, crumpled and wilted, lay Blue Wing.
All her joyous, free laughter was stilled, all her gay, tantilizing manner had
vanished. Silent and still she lay on the grass. Yellow-Tiger was overcome by
remorse, he ought to have taken care of this fragile treasure, entrusted to his
-1-g.,..--1.--...sae-,e.,' -3 J,.f.:+-,gr-:ci '31,

l .1 :A
care. It seemed quite proper to him to think that he was accountable for this
calamity, and quite the correct thing to appropriate the right of protection to the
little Vixen. Little vixen! "Little darlingf' unconsciously Yellow-Tiger uttered
these words aloud. Marvelous was their effect! He bent nearer-
"Little darling." he murmured. "I love you, wake up, I love you." He
heard himself repeating the phrase over and over.
Gradually life seemed to return to the delicate creature. The wings una
folded and spread out, the wilted appearance disappeared and in its place the
satiny azure blue wings. glistened and glowed in the light of the setting sun.
Slowly Illue Wing aroused herself. Silently she listened to Yellow-Tiger's
passionate declarations. VVith one final flutter, Blue Wilig shook out the few re-
maining wrinkles in her wings and was herself again. She spring lightly upward,
laughing gaily as she chanted:
"At first I enchant a fair sensitive plant
Then I flirt with the Pink of perfection!
Then I seek a Sweet Pea, and whisper,
I have long felt a fond predilection.
A lily I kiss, and exult in my bliss,
But I very soon search for a new lip:
And I pause in my flight to exclaim with delight,
'Ohl how dearly l love you, my Tulip !'
In short, you must know,
I'm the Butterfly Beau!"
Stung to immediate action. all his lovers soul challenged, Yellow-Tiger
captured the maiden before she was aware of his intention and, holding her fast,
he repeated his vows so earnestly and so tenderly that she was finally convinced
of his sincerity. It was then Yellow-Tiger's turn to be surprised, for Blue Wiiig
suddenly became the submissive maiden of whom he had dreamed.
That evening, Butterfly town was electrified by the news of the betrothal
of Yellow-Tiger to Blue Wilig. The next morning. all the big people and little
people received invitations, daintily written on birch bark, bidding them to the
wedding of Yellow-Tiger-Swallow-Tail and lllue VVing, to he held at the church,
The sun shone brightly on the wedding hour, and the lllue Bells pealed
their sweetest. Never had there been such a wedding, nor such a handsome
couple, the guests declared-and the Caterpillar Post contained that evening a de-
tailed and accurate account of the whole ceremonyg and the Glow-worm Ledger
announced that the bride and groom had gone immediately after the reception,
held at Wood Lily Mansion, to spend their honeymoon amid the Moonflowers at
the far end of Lovers' Lane.

Each year for many years, there has been a German Club here. On
October 19, 1915, the German students met in Miss Ricketts room for the purpose
of renewing the club. Nominations were made for the various officers, but voting
, was deferred until the next day, so that a fair chance might be given to all to vote.
'f These officers were elected:
V President ............. ....... F loyd Prewitt
S Vice-president ........ .. ..... Julia Johnson
Secretary ............. .......... . .. ....... Nellie Ernest
. Treasurer .................................................. Thelma Strabel
On December I 1, the German Club met for the Hrst time. A short sketch,
.'. entitled "Schulze im Restaurant," was given. The cast of the sketch was:
W Herr Schulze .............................................. Robert Kegley
-Q Frau Schulze ....... ...................... E lizabeth Bayley
E Karlchen ........... .................... ,... ........ E l 1 ner Green
Die Kelluer .......................... Archie Albee, Hugh Hobart
Poems from Heine were were given by several of the club members.
, Several German games were played and then refreshments consisting of cheese
Q' wafers. pickles, hot chocolate were served.
H The second meeting of the society was held in April. Professor
R Brooks of the University showed many pictures of Nuremburg, an ancient German
village, and gave a very interesting talk on the pictures. Certainly those members,
who did not attend, regret their failure to hear Professor Brooks.

xp The Freshman was displaying the Stunt Show Placque to the Stranger- '
' "Gur Literary Society is about the best one anywhere around," she boasted.
Q "We have had such splendid meetings every two weeks and our crowds were
enormous. There is real talent represented at our programs, and it is all so
Q cleverly managed, that we can well be proud of our Society. The Freshmen

some music and then a comical little farce. Everybody thought that it was just
X. splendid-about the best of all.
" "Our class is well represented in the Society. We have often had solos,
duets and debates by Freshmen, and several members of our class have served
on real important committees."
, The Sophomore grinned. "Listen to that Frosh rave," he jeered. "She
? wouldn't know a good Literary Society from a freckled cucumber. and yet. just
V because she belongs to this one, and because she's a Frosh, she thinks this is the

There's some good debating, too.-our class sees to that. The Soph stunt was a

W' more officers and committeemen. That's what has made our Literary Society the
H best anywhere around."
R "Oh, do you think so ?" laughed the junior. "Well, I have an altogether
different opinion about it. The Literary Society was a grand success, this year,
for just four reasons. In the first place, the meetings were always very entertain-
' ing. The stories and readings were chuck full of fun and so well given that
" everyone wished the meetings came every week instead of every two weeks. It
surely takes the junior class to furnish talent.
s "Then, the socials and parties were always good. Our last party was a
dandy from beginning to end. I never shall forget that comical movie. It was
certainly a scream, and the tin pan orchestra that went with it was just as good.

Green'g and we gave 'The Evolutionf Of course, ours was the best and we had
our name engraved on the Stunt Show Placque. It's no wonder that the other
classes were jealous."
The Senior looked around the group with a very condescending air.
"Children." he said loftily, "it is almost amusing what a lot of strange ideas you
have. Of course our Literary and Debating Society is quite a wonderful
organization, but none of you realize wherein its great importance and success lies.
"For one thing, it has furnished, for the whole student body. a splendid
opportunity for the development of literary appreciation. Its activities were
beneficial to the student who endeavored to become an efficient and intelligent
citizen. A keen spirit of good natured rivalry, was promoted by the prize which
is awarded to the student who makes the highest average. The current events
which were included in nearly all of the programs, were interesting and educa-
tional. The critics' reports were helpful in our cultivation of a keen literary
interest, and the travel lectures and parliamentary scraps have been well given
and very beneficial.
"Then, the debates of the year have been exceptionally good. The inter-
class debates were highly appreciated and the triangular debate, between Urbana
High School, Grand Prairie Seminary, and Normal University High was the
best of the year. Our indebtedness to Mr. Himstedt and Mr. Ewert, of the Uni-
versity of Illinois, who coached our teams so thoroughly that we won a double
victory, cannot be overestimated.
"But perhaps the greatest reason for the success of the Literary and De-
bating Society has been the support and cooperation which it has received from
the Senior class. The President of the society was a Senior as were also the
most influentlal members. It is not at all strange to me that a society having
such a backing should prove to be an organization beneficial and enjoyable to the

Among the various organizations in school ranks the Latin Club. After
many days of watching the Latin students saw a notice in the bulletin box calling
a meeting. Those who were interested obeyed the notice, and met after school
to organize a Latin Club and to elect the officers for the year. The nominations
were made and the officers elected were:
President .................................. .......... E dith Brooks
Vice-president ..................... ......... F loyd Prewitt
Secretary ...................................................... Ruth Webber
Treasurer .................................................... Robert Hayes
The first meeting, in the form of a party, was held in January. Victrola
records of "Agnus Dei" and "Stabat Mater" were played. Several of the mem-
bers contributed Latin dialogues for the entertainment of those versed in Latin.
Scenes from Virgi1's "Aeneid" were presented by the following people: Reginald
Flom, Dulany Fitzhugh, Pauline Knipp, and Grace Baldwin. An idea of a Roman
school was given by Doublas Fay, as the "magister" and with a number of Fresh-
men and Sophomores acting the roles of the "discipuli".
Light refreshments were served at the close of the program.
At the invitation of Dr. Pease of the History Department of the University
of Illinois, the club made an inspection trip of the Museum in Lincoln Hall, on
April 26. The club was guided around in the Museum and was shown some of
the old curiosities.
Last year a picnic was held at Crystal Lake Park. At this writing another
is planned for some time this spring. U

l'rbana lligh has added another victorious year to her debating history.
lfor the last three years Urbana has not lost a debate.
The first tryout for the debating team was held on November. Fred
Smith, liarl Miller, Gladys Woody. john Mcfammon, Robert Kegley. Russell
Bowditch, l-lerbert Harmison, and Raymond Singer survived. At the second
tryout, an affirmative team was picked, which consisted of ,lohn McCammon,
Gladys VVoody. and liarl Miller. Robert Kegley, Russell llowditch. and Fred
Smith were chosen for the negative team.
The question debated this year by the triangular league. composed of
Normal University lrligh School, Grand llrairie Seminary. and Urbana High
School, was an unusually difficult one. It was "Resolved, That the principle of
state socialism is superior to the principle of free competitionf, Urbana sent
its negative team to Onarga on April 7 to meet Grand Prairie Seminary, and
Normal sent its negative team here on that same day. The result was two
unanimous decisions for Urbana. The negative team won an undisputed victory
at Onarga. The judges. in enumerating the points on which the debate was won
mentioned delivery, logic. argument. continuity of thought, and, in fact, all the
points on which a debate could be won. Although the judges at Urbana did not
give the reasons for voting as they did, there is no doubt but that would have
been about the same.
The debating teams started the season with R. li. Himstedt, Instructor in
l'ublic Speaking, and U. of l. debater. as coach. l-But on account of ill-health,
Mr. Himstedt was forced to drop the work before it was fairly begun. Mr. E. C.

liwert of the L'niversity. and one of its ablest debaters, was secured. and by dint
of hard work and perseverance. he had the two teams in such good trim by the
night of the debate that the opposing teams were left without a ghost of a chance
of winning. The negative team won a 2 to I decision from the affirmative team
in a preliminary debate held before the triangular debate.
The Miller Medal was won this year by Eliza Garman, who spoke on
"Modernizing Urbana". Three boys and two girls competed for the medal.
' For the iirst time in its debating history Urbana High School had a girl on
one of its teams. Miss Woody deserves double credit for the part she played in
securing' the 3-0 decision. for not only did she debate remarkably well, but she did
it in spite of t chfact that debating is not the type of public speaking adapted to
a girl's voice and manner. Miss Woody was holder of the Miller Medal during'
this school year. also. This medal is presented annually to the best boy or girl
orator in the high school. which is determined by a CO1ll1J'ClllQlVt' contest held

each spring. Miss Woody represented L'rbana in the District Oratorical Contest
held at Paxton. Saturday. April 29. She received third place.
At a contest held before the school one morning, Harold M. Glenn and
Virginia Sale were chosen to represent Urbana at the Charleston contest which
was to be held on May 6.
A series of interclass debates was held in the fall and early winter under
the auspices of the Literary and Debating Society. The iirst debate, between the

One of the most enjoyable entertainments of the year was the "Echo

dancing. Preceding the rise of the curtain the high school orchestra played a
musical selection: the first act was a minstrel act "put on' by some of our best
comedians, our prettiest girls, and our most debonair ladsf the second act was a
funny, little sketch, "The Umbrella Mendern, given by two boys. Some very
graceful dancing, by a couple, well skilled in that art, comprised the third act.
The closing act, "Xylophonology", was the rendition of solos and duets on the
Xylophone by the talented Kent brothers.
The'Senior play, "The lllossoming of Mary Anne," was the dandiest sort
of play, full of excitement, dramatic situations, and the cleverest wit. The cast
of characters was as follows:

Of course. Stan made a heart-breaking hero, and Betty Bayley, as the sweet
little country heroine, was quite bewitching. The two had a boy and girl court-
ship and engagement, but when Bill was sent to college, he had promised his
father that he would "cut out all love affairs" until after his graduation. Elaine
jewett, an ambitious young society girl made up her mind that she must win Bill
Harkeley, since her delicate little sister, Trella, needed a great deal of care and
her father was about to go into bankruptcy. When Mary Anne learned Elaine's
purpose, she was about to give up her dreams and hopes of ever seeing Berkeley
again. However, her wealthy aunt, Mrs. Kirkland energetically announced that
she was going to take Mary Anne to New York and "back her up against Elaine
Jewett to see which one would come out ahead."
After months of careful training, Mary Anne was a beautiful, well poised,
charming girl. At her first society dance she met liarkeley, who cared for her
the same as he had four years before. But at this point, Elaine Jewett
caused a misunderstanding between the two and tricked Barkeley into an engage-
ment with her. When Mary Anne learned of the engagement, she returned to
Farmdale, resolving to put Barkeley completely out of her life, and began to

study to be a nurse. Soon afterward, Trella's sickness became much worse, and
through her serious illness Elaine was brought to realize the folly and wretched-
ness of her deceit. As soon as Trella's recovery was assured, Elaine released
Barkeley from his engagement and told Mary Anne of her deceit, begging for
forgiveness. Then, calling Barkeley to Mary Anne, she joined their hands and
went softly out of the room with Henderson whom she really loved.
Some lively wit was furnished by Miss Slissy, a very sharp-tongued country
dressmaker, and by Betsy, Mrs. Simmons' silly, sentimental servant girl, who was
desperately in love with the hired man, and by Patty Cloverleaf, a jolly little
scatterbrained society girl.

On September I5 the first call for football candidates was issued, and
thirty-seven men responded. Among them were several old U men, Capt.
Golden, Allman. Childers, Conrad, Pettys and Hobart. The men worked hard
under the careful tutelage of Coaches Harper and Crigler and it was not long
before the coaches found some good new material, such as "Torchy" Stearns and
Lovingfoss, of Philo, and Gallivan, and Jessen.
VVe received an invitation from the Eastern State Normal School at
Charleston to go there for a practice game on September 25. We had not learned
our signals very well, but nevertheless the coaches and twenty men made the trip.
Both coaches and men gained some valuable information from this game, as an
effort was made to give all of the men a chance to play. It was an ideal day and
a good crowd came out. We held the State Normal team to a o-o score the first
half, but the second half our men, not being accused to playing so early in the
season, weakened, and the E. I. S. N. managed to score 3 touchdowns. Urbana
did some good playing however. Golden and Childers were tackling with the
same vengeance that they used last yearg and Hobart and Morgan played in the
back field, and did most of the carrying of the ball.
The next game was with University High at Normal, on October 2.
This too, was not a regular game, and was something' like the practice game at
Charleston. From this game, also the men learned important lessons, the new'
recruits, especially. Gallivan was easily the star of the game, making good gains
through center. Several men were kept out of the game on account of minor

injuries. VVhen the final whistle blew Normal had managed to defeat us by the
score of 26-0.
All of our attention was then turned toward the game with Decatur
on October 9. lu this, our first regular game, we were to meet a team which
was supposed to have a good chance for the championship of the state.
The afternoon was as hot as a day in july, but the Urbana team came out
on the field running over with "pep". This was the first chance for the local fans
to see the team perform on the new field.
They kicked oii to us and we started in like a whirlwind and played Decatur
oi? its feet. But we could not manage to get the ball over the goal line. Two
features of the game were that there was no penalty in the entire game and that
"Red" did not get hurt. The second half Decatur played an entirely defensive
game, and if we could have played 3 minutes longer Urbana would have scored.
The whole Urbana team is to be complimented on its star playing.
The next Saturday, the team went to Tuscola with a big bunch of rooters.
some went with us on the train, and quite a number went in automobiles. There
were about as many rooters from Urbana on the bleachers, as there were from
Tuscola, and they made a great deal more noise.
Tuscola came on the field with a lot of "pep", but soon weakened, although
they managed to hold us to a 0-0 score the first half. Conrad was seriously in-
jured in the first half and was removed from the game. This weakened our line,
but Urbana pulled herself together and Allman romped over the goal line for the
first touchdown of the season. Gallivan failed to kick goal.
Urbana began to feel too juberous over this and in the last two minutes of
play Tuscola's speedy little half skirted our end and made a touchdown. but
failed to kick goal which left the score a tie. The game ended with a score
of 6-6. Stearns, our star center, was unable to be in this game on account of his
ankles, and this weakened the line. The inexperienced Green made a good
showing at center, however.
The next trip the team made was to T aylorville, on October 23. The
trip was very enjoyable and the men were in very good spirits. It was a nice
warm fall day , in other words, an ideal day for a football game.
One minute after the game started, Pettys plunged through center for the
first touch-down. -lessen kicked goal. The line was greatly strengthened by the
presence of the gritty little center from' Philo, who was easily the star of the
line, as he carried three men back at once, opening a hole big enough for a team
of horses to drive through. Through his efforts and the general good work of
the line, Urbana managed to run away with the game by a score of 27-o. Allman
made one touchdowng jessen made one, and Pettys found that he could do some-
thing besides call signals, and made two touchdowns. Hobart proved that he
could still kick goals by making two from a very difiicult angle. The two ends
and tackles did most of the defensive playing.

The next game was with llloomington. on October 30. Our train was two
J. hours and thirty minutes late, because of the rush of people coming to Urbana
for the homecoming game at the University of Illinois. lly the time we reached
' Bloomington the crowd was on the field waiting for the game to begin. So we
hardly had time to dress. let alone practice. just as soon as we reached the field,
the referee blew his whistle. and we had to line up to receive the kick-off. just
to show them our stripe. if we did have to start to play a game under such dis-
Q . . .
'QF advantages. we managed to make a touchdown m the hrst four minutes of play
V by a direct pass across the line, Allman to Pettys. Hobart kicked goal. Bloom-
Q ington then put up a stiff iight and managed to make a drop kick and a touchdown
, in the last few minntcs of play. The right side of our line was made up largely
" of inexperienced men. which fact weakened the team. This was our first and
only defeat of the season.
1 Mattoon came to Urbana on November 6, giving the home rooters a second
chance to see the team in action. The game started with a lively fray of excite-
ment. Hobart kicked off to Mattoon's live yard line, and then, Mattoon through
. a rapid series of plays. came marching down the field to their thirty yard line.
" They were forced to punt to our full-back, who fumbled the ball and permitted a
Mattoon player to fall upon it. They were then within live yards of the goal

line, and they managed to get the ball over on an end run. Chcckley of Mattoon
kicked goal, making the score 7-0.
At the beginning of the second half, Crbana began to get warmed up, and
our goal line was no longer in any danger. just as we got the music well started,
Captain Golden turned his ankle, and had to be removed from the game. "Slats"
acted as Captain in his place. The freshmen were surprised to see "Bob" Delap
lill Golden's shoes to good advantage. He deserves credit for playing so good a
game on his initial appearance. After the removal of "Stan", "Del" intercepted a
forward pass and ran forty yards for a touchdown. Hobart kicked goal, tying
the score. The next play had hardly started when jessen repeated the same feat,
after which "Slats" again kicked goal, making the score I4-7.
In this game "Boob" Childers proved himself to be one of the best little ends
that ever donned a suit for the U. H. S. He made many a tackle which looked
impossible to the crowd.
The next trip was to Villa Grove in automobiles over a very muddy road, a
trip which will never be forgotten by most of the players. especially those who
helped push "Dug" Fay's car out of the ditch several times. Finally Coach
Crigler came to the rescue and drove the big Cadillac the rest of the way, so
that we managed to get there in time for the game.
The Villa Grove men started out as if they meant business and succeeded
in blocking a kick behind the goal line. This gave them a great deal of confidence,
and their side line rooters began to boast about what a team they had. In the
next half Pettys resumed duty as quarterback. and we succeeded in marching
straight up the Held for a touchdown. This we repeated three more times in the
remainder of the game, Allman making three of the touchdowns and Pettys one.
Hobart proved to be a valuable man at kicking all the goals as well as a veteran
tackle. Lovingfoss's ability as a stellar guard was displayed in this game. while
the whole backlield starred in the last half. Conrad and the ends also played a
good game. Urbana was not without rooters, because a little troop of them had
braved the mud and had come down to see us win. Such rooters as these put
pep into the team.,
The next game played was with Onarga at Onarga, on November 20. The
second team made the trip. They held Onarga to an O-0 score. Urbana High
School is to be congratulated on having such a good supply of material as to be
able to send up to Onarga a fine second team. Some good playing on the part
of the second team was displayed and their failure to score was due to inex-
While this battle was taking place at Unarga, the Varsity was out at the
Fair Grounds getting the last rough edges polished off, and learning a few of the
liner points of the game, together with some clever trick plays which netted some
good ground in the Champaign game. This was a secret practice game and no
one witnessed it except the players and Coach Harper, who made for himself

the name of being one of the best coaches this school has had for some time.
The most important game of the season, of course, was that to be played
with Champaign on Thanksgiving Day. The Champaign team had been using a
type of play that made it hard for the fans to judge the relative strength of the
rival teams that were to meet in the last game of the season. Their famous full
back had more than once received mention in the Chicago papers, and the fact
that Champaign had piled up a score of more than half a hundred on some of her
early rivals made it seem to some that the odds were in favor of our friends to
the west. On the other hand. Urbana's squad had learned to regard all their
rivals as mere players to be looked upon as necessary obstacles in the way of their
progress. Champaign's stars were rated no different than the others, and the
boys were no less determined than was their coach that the outcome of this
final game should be a pleasant memory.
Captain Golden and Coach Harper were not satisfied with ordinary prepara-
tion for the great event, but they say to it that not a single thing was left undone
hat might help to win the coveted victory. i
Shortly after the game was called, our captain fulfilled his promise made to
the coach on the way over from Urbana. He tore around left end and ran for a
touchdown. Thus Urbana began to realize a long cherished hoped. This put
Champaign entirely on the defense. for every man in our team meant to play
in the same class with his captain. Gallivan was the first to follow the captain's
example when, in the second quarter, he tore through tackle. Allman did the
same a little later. and "S-lats" made a sure job of the goal kick by booting the
ball clear out of the enclosure. When the half ended, Urbana had scored 21
points that she would not trade for all the previous touchdowns of the season.
Ilut this proved to be the small half of the game after all, for after Coach Harper
gave permission to "open up", Champaign's defense took on a sickly hue. Our
line made holes through their hopelessly fighting defensive, and our backfield
men were not slow in finding the holes. They met Champaign's backfield with
such terrific force and speed that the latter were obliged to draw up close and
R unite their efforts with their line to be effective. lflere our quarterback showed
the good results of a season's training and much hard workg his judgment in
directing the plays was not all luck. All the boys were more than willing to do
, their parts. but it was l'ettys who decided when and where to strike, and he
Q seldom went wrong. Nor was this all, for few will forget the punts that rose
from his toe in the second and third quarters.
' Mactiillivray took Gallivan's place at full back during the third quarter,
"' and while it was evident that he was not as much at home there as "Red" had
H been, he played well. Kelley displaced Johnston at right tackle for a.short time
. and was also a strong recruit.
V Allman and Gallivan repeated their performance. but the wind and a very
difficult angle made failures of both tries for goal. However, "Slats" had found

'M lhe 111terest 111 baseball 111 Urbana l'l1gh was directed wholly to the i11ter-
'Q class series i11 tl1e spri11g of 1916. No varsity tea111 was organized. The whole-
l hearted interest with whicl1 interclass series was greeted was evide11ced by the
prolonged cheers a11d crys of "slide, you boob, slide", whicl1 came from Carle
i Park every evening when a game was scheduled. The girls of tl1e school as well
lg as the boys came out i11 large m1111bers to support their class teams.
If Probably the strongest team of the four was that of the Sophomores.
I Winne1's of the interclass championship last year. they started out on the same
R road in 1916, but met their first defeat since they were i11 lllgll school at the hands
4 of the Seniors. with a score of 7-6. Childers pitched good ball for the Sophomores.
Zllld witl1 Pettys behind the bat and with a very good inheld, the SCCOl1d year n1en
J' had a team that was l1ard to beat.
x The Freshmen had a good team also, and won several games. Garman
g pitched for tl1e Freshinen, and 111ade a very good showing. The Junior team was
S probably the weakest of tl1e four. They were defeated i11 nearly all of the games
which they played. Gallivan pitched for them, a11d MacGillivray caught.
The Seniors l1ad a very good team. wl1icl1 fact was evidenced by their
being the only team to defeat the well-night invi11cible Sophomores. Eaton and
Golden pitched, and liiklor acted as back-stop. Kelsey. who played short-stop
for the Seniors, was probably the best all-round player on all fo11r tea1ns. He
rarely let a ball get past him. and he was a marvel at base running.

The athletic efforts and attainments of the high school girls during this
year emphasize our need for and desire of a gymnasium. Then and then only
can we hope to find the systematic training which we need so much. But in spite
of such hindrances the girls have made remarkable progress in their year's work
in basketball. Great interest has been manifested in the class games and teams.
Early in the fall, groups of girls of the different classes organized their
teams, with a member of the faculty to coach each team.
Freshmen .......................... ...,...... ......... . . .Miss Richardson
Sophomores ...... .... ................ M i ss Cline
juniors .......................................................... Miss Ricketts
Seniors ............................................................ Miss Bruner
Earnest practice began immediately, and it was found that we had a num-
ber of athletic stars, and very good material in general. We recall with great
enthusiasm some of the good baskets made by "Monnie", Lulu Jones, Pauline
Knipp, Grace Baldwin, and others too numerous to mention. Some excellent
team work was developed during the course of the season, and this was well
shown in the interclass games.
These games were so arranged that every class played every other class.
The championship of the fall season went to the Sophomores after some hard
fought battles. We feel that our first efforts in athletics have been by no means
in vain. With our promised gymnasium and regular courses in Physical Train-
ing, we hope for great things for the athletic future of our girls.

2 Interest in tennis took a spurt this year. An association was formed for
2 the purpose of collecting enough money to pay for the construction of two courts,
9 which were placed at the rear of the school building. In the tryout for Charleston
T," representatives, K. Takakn was picked for the singles, and Douglas Fay and
'bl Henry Mosier were chosen for the doubles.
In the Charleston meet, Takaku, or "jinunie", took second in the tourna-
ment, being defeated by VVest of Decatur. West is one of the stars of the Corn-
'll belt section. "Jimmie" played a tine set, and made VVest work hard to win his
tl victory. "Jimmie" never played a game of singles before in his life, except in
.'. Jractice a few da 's before the meet, and he is to be es Jeciall commended for his
l I l Y
