And we hide our sorrow swiftly, When our boys go marching by For there's music in their laughter And courage in their eye. Strong in faith and hope they leave us To answer a Nation's cally And we who are left in safety Thrill with pride for our soldiers all. And their songs ring out with gladness And their glance is clear and freeg They carry no hint of sadness To our Allies across the sea. Ah, these are the heroes America sends To defend our national rightg To conquer the power of the Vandal And keep the torch of Liberty bright. FLORENCE SICKMAN, '18. l Sc mn I THE ROSEMARY FOREWORD fait' ITH the hope that it will please and Q5 fig, I amuse you in the present, and in the QQ? future will serve as a guide leading lfi5W you back through the labyrinth of 'E life to pleasing memories of school days, the ROSEMARY Staff offers you this token In spite of certain difficulties it was possible to prepare and issue this year-book of the Class of '18 on account of the efficient system and O1 gani zation of the staff and the persistent effort and valuable aid of our new faculty member Miss Junkin. Work, sport and enjoyment have been oui plans, generosity, impartiality and good will our guiding principles. Readers Who may feel offend ed, are asked to consider things in a humorous light, especially if your roast seems a "boost,' instead.

THE ROSEMARY THE CENTENNIAL CLASS OF 1918 Illinois, thy sons and daughters, Tune their hearts to sing thy praise, This thy hundredth anniversary, Calls to mind thy olden days, When the red-man and the hunter, Wandered through thy trackless ways. Now a state of mighty cities, Thrifty farms, and orchards growing, State of heroes, nation honored, State of men of honest thriving, State of honor and of justice, Thee we serve with upright living. To this class of nineteen eighteen Comes the honor of thy birthday, Of a hundred years of progressg Comes the call to seek the pathway Beaten by thy loyal soldiers Who for truth their life would pay. But to us there comes a pleading, Never heard by class before, 'Tis the calling of the nation, Plunged into a world-wide war. Now a iight for human freedom, Out of love our cannons roar. And for right, not might, our nation Took up arms against the foe, We will back her to the finish, Give our best young men to go. We will win, but may we never, Crush a land with coward blow! God of nations, love, and honor, Cause the hearts of men to soften Toward their fellow men and brothers, So that war may never threaten, And at last thy words fulfilling, "Peace on earth, good will to men".

HELFENSTEIN THE ROSEMARY 1 THE SOUL CF AMERICA Lf,-is UR country of broad prairies and lofty mountains is no country of mere I wr dollars and physical comfort, but a land of brave men and women. Amer- .. V' l " . . . . 1ca has known wealth and ease, but she also knows Justice, fair play, and ,. ,Q a.f,g,'C human liberty. Our great President was calling to the Soul of America when he said: "The Americans are an idealistic people." -'QTQIJ America's national heroes have been great idealists, standing for those principles upon which American happiness depends. There is Washington, who was duty, Jef- ferson, who was brotherly kindness, Lincoln, who was sympathy and understanding, Clay, who was love of peace, Webster, who was national pride, grandeur, and honor, and today Wilson, who is the very voice of democracy-all these have advanced the cause of justice, fair play, and human liberty. And these, our hero statesmen, helped in the making of the Soul of America, the reality of which we have come to perceive of late as never before. Not only brave statesman and lofty leaders have formed the American national Soul, but the plain and patient pioneers, moving westward to gain for their children a new and better chance for happy life, the brave and hopeful immigrants, who left familiar scenes to find in America the fulfillment of an ambition and a prayer, the great, unassuming American business men working to lay up a competence for their children-all these working together have made the generous, kindly, courageous, ideal- istic American Soul. That soul has been portrayed today by artists as the beautiful maiden, Columbia, and by cartoonists as Uncle Sam, that old hero, marshalling the people to victory. That Soul has been aroused to great deeds in this Great War, and America will do her part. She has sent her youth across to foreign lands to fight in behalf of her sacred principles. She will lavish her wealth and money, until she is deprived even of every-day comforts. America will not seek revenge or reprisals. Nor will she seek profit, for what profit can repay her for her children who go to make the great sacri- fice. Comardes, classmates, as we say farewell to each other and to the friends who have aided us in our school life, the war clouds are darkening ever more thickly around us. The near future holds for some of us suffering, sorrow, and tears, but let us go forward to do our small part in America's great struggle, bravely trusting in God and in the Soul of America. For the sake of such a country, it is a glory and a privilege to do our best. We may trust America to play a noble part, to uphold the cause of justice and humanity, to awaken the conscience and soul of war-clouded Europe, to make the world safe for democracy. RUTH WEBBER.

How much better Q, ' X552 fitted we are to confront the difficult situations before us because of the efficient training we have received in the four years preparation nova com pletedg although little did we realize at the beginning how altered would be the dreams of our Freshman days. The Great War has put upon us many services and duties, the performing of which is manifestation of our patriotism to our great nation. Our pa- triotism, which previously has been scarcely more than a rhetorical phrase, is now to be tested to the limit. Those boys represented on our service flag, to whom we have dedicated our book, have shown us the ideal of national loyalty. After their example, let us, each in his several way, strive toward the realization of this ideal, and learn the duties of citizenship in this great country. With a firm belief in the successful accom- plishment of our ambitions in the years to come, we step unhesitatingly into the future. ARTHUR SLOAN Ellll Y 'K 5 ,Q FII? at E-' 4' ,Hi li f E -N ' I .

'N 'g y' D I Thirty-three I an if THE ROSEMARY HISTORY OF TI-IE CLASS OF 1918 E, the class of 1918, entered Thornburn on September 28, 1914, one hundred and fifty strong. We are the first class to spend the greater part of four Ii? years in the new Urbana High School where we took up our abode in 1 'W gsisath November, 1914. From the beginning of our career, different members have shown special ability along dramatic lines, among these were Avis Woody and Elizabeth Beuthien, who were in the cast of the operetta "Sylvia", and Helen Speas, Ted Swratz and Lee Pettys who were in the chorus. In the first Annual Stunt Show, held on April 30, the Freshmen won second place: Mary Webster, Kathryn Watson, Elizabeth Beuthien, Ted Swartz, Don Erb, and Russel Stamey took part. The committee in charge was composed of the following members of the class: Lee Pettys, Elizabeth Beuthien, Ted Swartz, Evan Davis, Avis Woody, and Hazel Klingelhoifer. Roy Childers and Lee Pettys nobly represented the class in athletics, Charles Scruby and Roger Wallace were in the high school orchestra. A committee composed of Avis Woody, Kathryn Watson, Mary Webster, and Louise Whitaker, chose green and gold as the class colors. The officers of the class were: President, Roy Childers, Vice-President, Avis Woody, Secretary and Historian, Elsie Kirkpatrick, Traesurer, Don Mason. In 1915 we re-entered with a decrease in membership, having but one hundred and seventeen members. The officers elected were: President, Lee Pettys, Vice-Presidnt, Don Mason, Sec- retary, Edith Blunt, Treasurer, Grace Baldwin, Historian, Kathryn Watson. This year, Urbana defeated Champaign 39-0, and the athletes of '18 were no small factor on the team, our former representatives, Childers and Pettys played excellently, and other members of the team were Elmer Green, Vivian Green, Don Mason, and Herbert Johnson. The girls, not to be outdone by the boys, won the inter-class cham- pionship in basketball, the team was composed of Louise Whitaker, Betty Beuthien, fcaptl, Grace Baldwin, Pauline Knipp, Minnie Funk, and Helen Somers. In debating we were represented by William Manny, Russel Pollitt, and Raymond Singer. Pettys represented the class in the Literary Society. In December, we sophomores held a successful party in the auditorium of the high school, the committee in charge was composed of Louise Whitaker, Betty Beuthien, and Esmond Sutcliffe. In the Second Annual Stunt Show, we put on a modern musical comedy, on the committee were Mary Webster, Avis Woody, Kathryn Watson, Evan Davis, and Russel Pollitt. The class was well represented in "Bul Bul", in which our present stars played important parts, Betty Beuthien, and Don Erb were in the cast, and Helen'Speas, Louise Whitaker, Avis Woody, Myrtle Strickland, Elmer Green, Esmond Sutcliffe, Arnold Emch, Roy Childers, Russell Stamey, Ted Swartz, Lee Pettys and Raymond Singer were in the chorus. We returned to school in September, 1916, as Juniors, and now we were only ninety-seven. On September 19, we elected the following officers: President, Elmer Green, Vice-President, Roy Childers, Secretary, Raymond Singer, Treasurer, Russell Pollitt, Historian, Pauline Knipp, Boys, Athletic Manager, Lee Pettys, Girls' Athletic Manager, Pauline Knipp, Hatchet Orator, Anna Bess Collier. Our former football champions shone resplendent in athletics,-the football team boasted of the following members of '18: 'tBoob" Childers Ccapt.J, Elmer Green, Vivian Green, Lee Pettys, John McCammon, Lester Stephens, Tom McDonough, Maurice Gordon, Ted Swartz, Warren Woolery, Elmer Scogin, and James Smith. The Girls' Basketball team, composed of Pauline Knipp fcapt.J, Marion Lessing, Helen Hopkins, Ruth Hunt, and Edith Blunt, won the championship. l Thirty-foul' 1 THE ROSEMARY ... About sixty juniors were present at our class party held in the Auditorium, this was a juvenile party ,and it is still treasured in the hearts of many as the best class party ever held in Urbana High School. The committee in charge consisted of Betty Beuthien, Louise Whitaker, Robert Richards, Evan Davis, and Roy Childers. William Manny, Evan Davis, and Russell Pollitt composed the Junior Debate Team, and John McCammon, James Smith, and Raymond Singer were enrolled as members of the Alpha Sigma Rho, the honorary debate and oratory society. Ted Swartz, Robert Richards, Fred Burt, and Evan Davis were juniors on the Echo Staff. As usual, members of the class were found in the cast and in the chorus of the operetta, "The Chimes of Normandy",-Donald Erb, Betty Beuthien, Myrtle Strick- land, Elsie Kirkpatrick, Clarence Young, Arnold Emch, Evan Davis, Russell Pollitt, and Ted Swartz being in the cast, and Louise Whitaker, Kathryn Watson, Esther Baird, Enid Boner, Elsie Kirkpatrick, Cecelia Bumgartner, Ruth Yantis, John McCam- mon, William Manny, Raymond Singer, George Sommers, Omer Swearingen, Robert Richards, and William Strickland being in the chorus. A number of juniors appeared in the Minstrel Show, given April 25. About ninety members of the class entered upon their last year at Urbana High School in September, 1917. The members of the "War Class" were already somewhat sobered by the change in diplomatic relations between the United States and Germany, and several members of the class were in active service. During the first semester there were ten changes in the roster of the faculty, several of these being due to the departure of men teachers for training camps. The following officers were elected: President, Lee Pettys, Vice-President, Evan Davis, Secretary, Avis Woody, Treasurer, Ruth DuVall, Historian, Ruth Webber. Five Seniors were on the Echo Staff, namely Robert Richards, Fred Burt, Don Erb, Pauline Knipp, Elsie Kirkpatrick, and Evan Davis. In the Annual Stunt Show the seniors put on a clever Musical Comedy called "So Long Georgie", and they received a great deal of praise for the dramatic and artistic talent displayed in this stunt. The committee in charge was composed of Betty Beuth- ien, Avis Woody, Ted Swartz, Don Erb, and Evan Davis. Miss Roberts coached the stunt. In the cast were Betty Beuthien, Don Erb, Ted Swartz, Don McCaskey, Blanche Wood, Louise Whitaker, and Robert Richards. On the football team were the following men of '18: Hamlin, Scogin, McCaskey, Owens, V. Green, Elmer Green, Swartz, McDonough, Pettys, and McCammon. In a Relay Carnival held at the University of Illinois, March 2, we seniors again displayed our ability in track sport. Three seniors were officers in the Literary Society. Dulany Fitzhugh, George Somers, and John McCammon were the senior members of the Varsity debate teams. On November 27, the senior pins arrived, much to the enjoyment of the members of the class. The pins, which were very artistic, were selected by a committee composed of Arnold Emch, Donald Erb, Louise Whitaker, Betty Beuthien, The election for the officers of the ROSEMARY was held December 14, and the fol- lowing were chosen: Editor-in-chief, Evan Davis, Business Manager, Russell Pollitt, Art Editor, Pauline Knipp, Photographers, Louise Whitaker and Enid Boner, Circu- lation Manager, Hazel Klingelhoffer, Roast Editor, Elmer Green, Athletic Editor, Vivian Green, Miss Junkin was chosen as Class Adviser. At a class meeting held Feb- ruary 1, the seniors elected the following: Arnold Emch, to give the Class Will, George Sommers to give the statistics, and Ted Swartz to give the Prophecy. Cherishing the remembrance of these activities and pleasures, the Class of 1918 leaves the Urbana High School. May the members further develop those character- istics which have especially done honor to their class, may the good habits which they have formed here under the guidance of their advisers, be with them throughout all their lives, and may they always prove themselves worthy of the title "The War Class." I Thirty-fire 1 igmg? THE ROSEMARY CLASS STATISTICS ET it be known that we, the Class of 1918, entered these Halls of Learning if and Labor UD with a determined intention of being graduated 10070 in quantity, namely, 179 aspiring Freshmen. Perceiving later, however, that Gd , quality was more to be desired than quantity, numerous members of the ""'XN' W" class sacrificed their aims that we, the surviving numbers, might fulfill our ambitions. fBless them.J Now, as everyone knows, statistics are generally asso- ciated with numbers and it is with numbers that this paper will deal. The deep thinkers and scientists of the class, after much work with extension lad- ders, tape measure, and yard sticks, found that the average height of the class was five feet, eight inches. Multiplying this amount by the number in the class, the height thus obtained was found to be 532 feet 8 inches. If a bomb were dropped from this height from a traveling airplane and in the vicinity of Urbana High School we might not even have our Gym. four Jimi. Another wrinkle was put in the brow the our learned calculators in figuring the amount of energy expended in daily conversation. It was found that providing we all had the capacity of John W. McCammon, the same identical bomb spoken of previously, might be hurled by such a vast quantity of energy produced by compression of such hot air, from Urbana to Berlin C71 If all members of the class possessed the variations in ability as are possessed by a few of our distinguished characters, namely, Ted Swartz, Wm. Manny, Russell Pol- litt, and Dulaney Fitzhugh, we might handle anything, from taking over the business of Wall Street to running the general store in Podunck. The class possesses in the personages of Frederick J. Burt, Betty Beuthien, Robert Watt Richards, and Swiss Emch, unprecedented masters in the art of bluffing. It is estimated that they have bluffed more teachers into putting them through their courses than all the rest of the class put together. -Much. tumble 'was -experienced by -.our...a.b1e,1:aJc11lat0rs in determini-ngrthe size of the heads in the class. Members of the class, when asked, said their heads were from twenty-five to thirty inches in circumference, but when actual measurements were taken they were found to average from twenty to twenty-four inches in circumference. If the difference in the size of heads were taken and sold as square feet of concrete, we might have enough walks to keep the underclassmen from using the lawns as thoroughfares. To Donald McCaskey goes the honor of being the tallest member of the class, he towering to the staggering and majestic height of six foot one. By much careful work it has been figured that it would take four men UD the size of "Shorty" Richards to tell Donald where to go or what to do. However, "Shorty" claims that he is going to grow a little after leaving Urbana High School, so that he may back up his word with a little action. The ninety-four members of this class may feel justly honored in being the only Centennial Class that ever graduated from Urbana High School. Our scientists claim that according to past records and statistics, at least a few of our number ought to be in Urbana High School when the Bi-Centennial celebration is held. In the Y. M. C. A. campaign the senior class furnished 313173, one-third more than its share. If this money were used to buy barbed wire, enough could be secured to knit the Kaiser a sweater, and tie up all the German armies on the Western front until the Allies have gone 'Lover the top" and on to Berlin. I. Thirty-six 1 - THE ROSEMARY After studying many details and the personalities of the different students of the class, the amount of time spent in study during the four years we have been in high school was found to be 532,723 hours. If we had received for this work the wage of present laborers ,we might accumulate enough money to buy a sack of wheat flour and a couple of pounds of sugar. The class of 1918 has furnished fourteen men to Uncle Sam and, according to re- cent advices received from them, the Kaiser has a small chance of coming out of this fray alive, because these sons of Urbana High, and the Class of '18 are out after blood. The football team this year was made up of eight members of the Senior class, while several members played on the second team. We realize that the team will sadly miss the men of '18, and we extend to them our heartiest sympathy and wish them the best of luck! The diversity of ideals possessed by the Class of 1918 would fill volumes, but time and space will not allow us to enumerate all of them. I have tried, however, to give a brief statistical review of the class. We have in our midst various Carusos, Wagners, and Paderwiski's, but to properly describe them all would require nothing less than an encyclopedia. Owing to the fact that we are not agents for the Brittanica edition, we will reveal no more secrets of our own wonderful class. GEORGE SOMMERS, '18. B 4 ff 7 My I Thirty-sffven 1 il..

I knew he'd get his picture in the paper some day. He and John McCammon will have a tight race to see who will take Billy Sunday's place. The following people are studying Greek Art under Miss Marion Lessing: Misses Esther Baird, Edith Fuell, Gladys Humrichouse, and Bessie Thornburn. Messrs. Horace Cook and Richard Squire have also attended a few of the classes which Miss Lessing held in Oldham's Hall. It has been rumored about that Vivian Green is the captain of a crew of submarine chasers who have been operating on Crystal Lake for the past month. Here are the names of a few of the crew: Evan Davis, Russell Stamey, Francis Somers and Gus Webber. Arthur Meeks and family moved to Arkansas today where Mr. Meeks formerly dwelt. He states that the pork he gets there is not wild enough for him. An unofficial report says that Jenice and Opal Nogle have taken unto themselves two husbands. That's queer. Let's see who was that little short guy that used to go to high school? I can't remember. Well, what's this? Miss Elizabeth Beuthien elected President. The W. C. T. U. held its annual election this afternoon at the home of Miss Ruth Yantis on California St. Officers for the following year were elected as follows: Elizabeth Beuthien, Pres., Amy Schroyer, Vice-Pres., Pauline Knipp, Secr., and Nettie Woodward, Treas. Miss Beuthien is a backer of the movement that "A woman's place is at home." I wonder why she never married. I saw Don Erb the other day and he says he gets to go out and tear around every Friday night, now. Here's some news. Miss Helen Hopkins alias Eva Tanguay II, will play at the Illinois next Saturday, in her own -er- some kind of a thing called "Why Men Leave Home". Coleita Aitken, Edith Blunt, Enid Boner, Opal Browning, Mary Martin, Eva Ross, Estelle Capps, Anastasia Conerty, Myrtle Crane, Helen Denton, Helen Harman, Vera Kirkpatrick, Alice Sadoris, and Mabel Squire, are among the ladies 'assisting Miss Hopkins. Among the men are: Kenneth Du Vall, Azro Fiedler, Edward Jones, William Reich, Raymond Singer, Ray Smith, Ernest Sperling, Don Somers and Merle Raines. Donald McCaskey has been appointed to drill the Home Guards for the following year. I went over to see Shorty Richards the other night for about a half-hour and he killed fifty or sixty Germans just while I was there. I would have stayed longer but I wanted to leave a few of these fellows for someone else to kill. Anna Bess Collier, Frances Cottrell, Julia Ehrlich, Bernice Freese, Antoinette Montgomery and Iva Hartman have just returned from France where they have been doing Red Cross work. Delaney Fitzhugh has a bum finger. I Thirty-eight 1 i,l THE ROSEMARY Arthur Lincicome is leading Russell Pollitt, Lloyd Woody, Fowler McKinley, and Warren Woolery in an effort to train blue-jays to help rid the country of cut-worms. I never did like the looks of those things anyway. Arthur Sloan is up in North Dakota teaching country school. The Girls' Agricultural Club sent in this report: Ruth DuVall and Lucile Gibson raised a big rumpus on the farm. Cecelia tried to raise some potatoes but she found she was a very bum gardener and gave it up. Francis Forker has been busy trying to convince Helen McCarty that she cannot raise drums on the farm. Florence Sickman grew shocked the other day when Philena Evans spoke of the barren wheat fields. Elsie Kirkpatrick said she would volunteer her services as dancing teacher if someone would build a dance hall. James Smith is operating in a wireless telegraph office in Chicago. About the only message he'll ever send is S. 0. S. I guess George Sommers is up there working as chief sharper in the Congress Cafe. Arnold Emch is beating the box in a movie theater down in New Orleans, that is, when he ain't beating somebody else. I suppose Tommy McDonough, Dennis Weaver and Minnie Lane are still bush- leaguers. A Louise Whitaker is still making Apricot perfume. Gustav Etzel has gone south for the summer. Well, I see Lee Pettys has a wife. I didn't think he'd ever marry. I wonder how Elmer Green and Hazel are getting along. Esmond Sutcliffe has a Boule cabinet to keep his notes in. He ought to get a safety vault and have a dozen men to guard it. Henry Simpson is the commander of a submarine on the Dead Sea. That man will start another World's War if he isn't careful. Grace Baldwin, Ruth Webber, Helen Somers, Florence Sperling, Vera Bottenberg, Myrtle Strickland, Margaret Sears, Bertha Sullivan, and Kathryn Watson are charter members of the Mutual Consolation Club. Any person who's sweetheart married a lady in France is eligible for membership. I'll bet I can name a few eligible young ladies. They seem to have quite a few advertisements in this paper.

KI g I Thirty-nine 1 lm ,THE ROSEMARY THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF T1-IE CLASS OF 1918 I E, the first class having the honor of attending this new remarkable insti- S tution of learning for four long and tedious years, and being about to step IA down into the arena of professional strife, hereby present and declare this to be our last will and testament. Deep in our hearts we know that we are ' "WoQf'f the best class that has ever attended the Urbana High School, though our inherent modesty, one of our striking characteristics, prevents our saying so. Modesty, however, is only one of our many virtues. We could occupy valuable space in enumer- ating the things we have done, but, as we have heretofore intimated, modesty is one of our cardinal virtues and, indeed, it would take a second Homer to do justice to our triumphs. Hence, we leave feeling that the classes which follow after us are worthy standard bearers of the Urbana High School, and will forever perpetuate its good name. To the faculty, who are prominent not only as instructors, but who have also dis- tinguished themselves as an agreeable organization for the promotion of our knowl- edge, we offer our thanks for their happy, age-mellowed temperament and legal fore- sight which will in time, no doubt, make them shining members of the "Who is Who" in America. ,The increasing commercial and materialistic age is constantly calling for men with crania containing a well charged thinking cell whose potentiality shall not be lost in aimless effort but concentrated into the attainment of a constructive reality beneficial to mankind. Such a man is contractor Howe, whom we praise for the speedy progress in constructing the Gymnasium, and the efficient economy, which cannot fail to receive full acknowledgment and public commendation. We wish to thank our two faithful janitors, for their everlasting attempts of keep- ing the windows and fountains clean, in spite of the accumulation of filth. Our musical appreciation extends its sympathies to the harmonic string quartette, who have, for over a semester, poured forth tiddledywinked melodic airs from the Echo office out into the lofty halls. We bequeath the acquired talent of these Ukulele hashers to the younger musical "cubists", who have a stand in with the honorable Echo staff. We congratule Miss Teeters and Mr. and Mrs. "Dusty" Roads for the good man- agement of their cafeterias, which were perfectly satisfactory to many of us, although at times the food wagon became somewhat monotonous. The significance of the wait- ing line before the cafeteria was impressed upon many a student, who unintentionally will participate in the bread line shows of the future. Military training, as a preliminary preparation for the present tremendous struggle and for future eventualities, has our full approval, and it is to be hoped that the school authorities will extend this activity by introducing regular courses in gymn- nastics and athletics into the high school curriculum. The senior class realize that in- tellectual and physical training for all students should go hand in hand. It is to be hoped that the anti-fraternity league be either entirely successful or that the fraternities, which so far have led a mysterious existence, be allowed to live under the glare of daylight and public approval. I Forty 1 ' THE ROSEMARY fm As we leave our dear Alma Mater with the lonesome hearts of joyous reminis- cences, we are glad to dedicate our splendid reputation in a generous manner to our equally good successors. In particular we bequeath: to Dorothy Schulz, Nettie Woodward's perennial white stockings, the blushing bashfulness of Ted Swartz toward the fair sex, to Earnest Wayne Noleng the democratic bearing of Kathryn Watson to Ruth Savage, Avis W. Woody's rusty hair and alabaster eyebrows to Dorothy Howeg to Leon Carpenter, Horace Cook's long dangling props, Frederick Jackson Burt's darling dimples to "Bob" Blair, George Isaac Sommer's "Aby" grin to "Dick" Glascockg "Betty" Beuthien's raven coiffure to Muriel Adams, the sensative disposition and cold reserve of John McCammon to Woody Thomson, Marian Lessing's valued reputation to Martha Har- mon 5 the forcible stride of Henry Simpson to Charles Goodpastureg Pauline Knipp's ability to get in class on time to Nelle Eiklor. Should we attempt to mention all of the individuals, whose work, in and for the High School, has been out of the ordinary, we would simply call the class roll. On this day, June 7th, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and eighteen, We, the graduating class of the Illinois Centennial year from the Urbana High School, hereby declare this to constitute our last will and testament.

But perhaps 'twould be wiser to conquer my ire And not add more fuel to keep up the fire To cease from increasing your terrified palor By wisely .exchanging discretion for valor But my business here is not merely to boast But squarely to give you back roast for roast. Junior: X Now there, little girl, don't worry your head, For into your trap I've willingly spedg With never a fear of what you might do, For who'd be afraid of a banty like you? You perk up your head and strut all around With high sounding language your speech doth abound Yet one who spends so much time in boast Will fall quite short when it comes to a roast. You'll lack as much of winning the prize As you do of measuring up to my size- So fire away, and do your worst, I'll promise all your bubbles to burst Withino weapon at all, but word for word l'll make all your boasting very absurd I'll show you up for what you are worth And make you wish you were off the earth- I Forty-th rec 1 + THE ROSEMARY SO fire away, as I said before I'll give you back as good, and more, I'll answer everything you say, So load up your gun, and fire away.

The first meeting of the class was held September 29, when class officers were nominated. The results of the election were: President, Charles Ammerman, Vice- 1 4 President, Thomas Garmang Secretary-Treasurer, Dorothy Burres, His- torian, Francis Cottrell. Robert Delap as substitute represented us on the first football team, while Thomas Garman, Elmer Burke, Charles Ammerman, Walter Gill, and Robert Blair made the second team. Other events of the freshman year were a Hallowe'en party, a skating party, a literary program and inter-class debate. At the annual stunt show the class of 1919 presented a stunt very fittingly entitled "Verdant Green". The class colors chosen were old rose and silver. The debating ability of Herbert Harmison, Robert Hayes, and others, as fresh- men, won high honors for our class. In the spring, Verne Hoag was elected captain of the baseball team and through his efforts we made the seniors hustle for second place in the inter-class championship games. We came to school the first day of our sophomores year with a feeling of great su- periority over the freshmen and a strong feeling of our own importance as experienced students. At a class meeting held early in the year the class elected the following officers: President, Thomas Garman, Vice-President, Robert Blair, Secretary-Treasurer, Elmer Burke, Historian, Charles Ammerman. As sophomores we held a Hallowe'en party and many other festivities. Several of our class appeared in the opera, "Chimes of Normandy", Charles Ammerman and Isa- bel Todd in the cast, and Delaney Fitzhugh, Robert Hayes, David Sharp, Elmer Burke, Margaret Scheib, Mary Crawford, Nelle Eiklor, and Gladys Shaffer in the chorus. We presented a very clever stunt, entitled: The Shades of Night are Falling Fast, Grades in Caesar, too, alas. Robert Hayes brought to the class the honor of winning the Miller Medal Contest. The class of 1919 entered upon their third year with a firm determination to be a "bright light" among the four classes. On September 21, the first class meeting was held. Class officers were nominated and after much competition the following officers were elected: President, Earl Wagner, Vice-President, Kenneth McCracken, Secretary, Howart Wertsg Treasurer, Jessica Brennan, Historian, Nelle Eiklor. Two of the officers of the Literary Society this year are juniors: Herbert Har- mison, President, and Margaret Scheib, Secretary, and we also have five members on the Echo Staff: Herbert Harmison, Katharine Rielly, Robert Blair, Richard Janvorn, and Claradehl Wallace. At a class meeting on October 2, our president appointed the Stunt Show commit- tee which was composed of: Charles Ammerman fchairmanb, Katharine Rielly, Dor- othy Burres, and Wayne Nolan and on December 14 the craft of the Junior Stunt, piloted by Miss Mabel Ricketts, sailed into the port of victory, presenter the Stunt: "Cabaret du Gai Paris, a la Mode, Chicago". The honors of the inter-class debate championship were won for the class of 1919 - I Fifty-three' I by Woody Thompson, Robert Hayes, and Claradehl Wallace. The juniors on the school debating teams are Robert Hayes, Woody Thompson, and Herbert Harmison. At a class meeting held in the Assembly, Herbert Harmison was chosen to give the junior response to the Hatchet Oration at Commencement. In the raising of the Y. M. C. A. fund, the Junior class did their share by giving a box social at which they made 9520, which, when added to the personal subscriptions, raised the sum total of the junior contribution to 313374. The junior class contributed the Urbana High School cheer leaders, Charles Am- merman and Herbert Harmison receiving U. C. L. letters, while Wayne Nolan helped out at the big games. Harold Glascock, Elmer Burke, and Tom Garman represented our class on the football team and Kenton Wright, Elmer Burke, Kenneth McCracken and Herbert Harmison in track work. Many of the class are members of the Boys' and Girls' choruses, while Margaret Scheib, Phil Written, Frances Mesersmith, Kenneth McCracken, and Harold Glascock played in the orchestra. In the Literary Society contest for membership, the juniors and freshmen against the seniors and sophomores, the result was a tieg but the junior and freshmen classes, having lost on the toss of a coin, shared the expense with the Literary Society for an "All-school" party in the new gymnasium, the first event held in that building. Woody Thompson brought the honor for the second time to the class of 1919 of winning the Miller Medal Contest. Thus ends the three year's history of the class of 1919, and here's to the success of our fourth year-may the good work go on! NELLE EIKLOR.

One hundred seven-three of us have helped in composing it and have striven hard to make it such a success that next year in the book . . 1 . l AL 957934 mores left off. Class meetings were numerous and discussions lively. At the beginning of the term we elected officers. A little later we discussed changing the class colors to violet and white, but after several objections on account of their in- sipidity, we were content with the less mournful colors of old rose and silver. Hallowe'en time we had a party-at which the writer was not present-although the rest say a splendid time was had by Hall". Most of us went to the all-school party and were delighted with the wonderful new gymnasium. Possibly the boys, though, had sour grapes on it. We have been well represented in athletics by Orville Lewis, Charles Blue, Earl Rhodus, Harold Glascock and Russell Maddocks. Bravo! P. K. Baynes helped us win second place in the Stunt Show with "A patriotic Night at the Orpheum". Make it first next year Kathie! In a way, we have been affiliated with the Red Cross by unceasing devotion of Hally Pomeroy-whose absence by the way, has indeed been noticed since she left in February-to her several knitting bags. In the Y. M. C. A. call for money, Clarence Smith and Harold Lumsden originated the plan for carrying the campaign through successfully. Clarence was also the chairman of the committee for selling Literary Society tickets. The sophomores contributed one hundred sixty of the school's pledges of six hun- dred dollars to the Y. M. C. A. fund. Some class! In spite of the faithful work of Ruby Slough, the Smileage Book epoch was not so successful as it should have been. Five dollars' worth of books were sold, however, and, we get our information from Rev. Adam's letter-as there were not enough books to supply each man in the com- pany with a ticket, the men were divided into groups, and the books distributed among the group giving the best athletic stunt. In the Literary ticket sale we sold seven- ninths of the ninety-two tickets sold by the senior-sophomore division. Next year, if all their plans work out, the historian-possibly the whole staff, who knows?-may be from the Wonder Children class.

They are High School students, dignified And small freshmen do they scorn, They've forgotten all their troubles And laugh at small folks forlorn. A first glance at a sophomore Might make one think of a senior, But a second and third will show you That he's very, very much greener. But really you know they aren't so bad, Not nearly as bad as they might be, For they've caught the old school spirit And are helping to make it mighty. So here's to the sophs, long may they live, May their credits never shrink. May they learn to use much better choice When selecting ribbons and ink. May they soon grow to be juniors With conduct more nearly sereneg May they reach the top as seniors And go over where life may be seen. And when they've crossed the goal line, May they look with tears of regret Upon the days of long ago Which they never can forget. Regret, not for their happiness, But for having been so stupid, When they laughed at innocent freshmen Who were as sweet and blind as Cupid. I Fifty-vight 1 RAY B. SINGER. HESHMEN. jf . THE ROSEMARY FRESI-IMAN CLASS OFFICERS President CHARLES HENDRICKS Vice-President MARIE REARDON Secretary CHARLES EWALT Treasurer CARL CAVANAUGH Historian HENDRIK BODE I Sixty 1 THE ROSEMARY HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1921 Vggx' HE class of '21 started the present school year with a membership of 121. At the present time, however, it has 152 names on its rolls. An increase of this sort would be unusual even under normal conditions, and is par- ticularly striking in war times. Evil-minded persons may infer from this '41 'LTUJA peculiar increase that the class of '21 has become a haven of refuge for slackers who are trying to escape the draft by joining the infant class. We wish to have it understood, however, that there is not a slacker in the class. The increase is due wholly to the operation of the Law of Compensation. Last year, when it still in- habited the benighted domain of the Thornburn school, the present class of '21 mag- nanimously donated a certain number of its members to the high school in order that the upper classes and the world at large might judge of what stuff the future class of '21 was made. These selected members, thirty-four in number, were known at the time as the class of 2015, or, more briefly, as the "Wonder Babies". Their purpose was simply to seize and hold the front line trenches until the main body could arrive. At their Hrst meeting of the present school year the class of 20172 voted themselves back into the class from which they had been temporarily detached, and thus brought about the sudden bulge in the statistics of the class of '21, The happy reunion was celebrated by a class meeting, at which the following officers were elected: Charles Hendricks, President, Marie Reardon, Vice-President, Charles Ewalt, Secretary, Carl Cavanaugh, Treasurer, Hendrik Bode, Historian. Now for some further statistics: On the basis of a canvass that included a hun- dred members of the class, it appears that 267s of the class are members of Red Cross, 17'7c are proud and more or less bloated fLibertyD bond holders, and 84? are contri- butors to the Y. M. C. A. Moreover, 75W of the class gave evidence of its loyalty and generosity by loaning relatives to Uncle Sam. We are glad of the opportunity to have a part in the great events that are taking place, and we are determined to make a creditable record, not only as members of the Urbana High School, but also as members of the community and citizens of the nation.

' ' , - ling approximately eight meetings a semester. The average attendance A- U A for the last year at the meetings was thirty and the membershlp for the last two semesters has been seventy-five and one hundred and forty, respectively. In order to give some idea of the character of the meetings the following program is submitted: After the opening of the meeting by the president, the secretary's report of the minutes of the last meeting is read and submitted to the society for its approval which is usually secured with but few criticisms. The other remaining business being disposed of, the president proceeds with the program, which usually consists of two or more musical numbers, a reading or a talk, or both, current events, and lastly, the critic's report. The duty of the critic is to criticise the program and make suggestions. Most always a very interesting parliamentary scrap -follows which is taken up en- thusiastically by the members. After this, the motion is made and carried for adjourn- ment and the meeting is oncluded. The Literary Society has proved itself to be an institution of great benefit to the high school. It has successfully carried out the management of the interclass debates. This year the junior class won. Another thing that it has made a success is the debates between our school and other schools. The Literary Society hires a coach for the teams, and pays all expenses of the teams. The coach this year was G. V. Knight, assisted by T. G. Searle. There were nine contestants for the teams. The successful ones were: affrmative-Woody Thompson, Herbert Harmison, and Robert Hayes, negative-Dulany Fitzhugh, George Sommer and John McCammon. The affirmative team won from Danville and the I Sirty-fi rr' I THE ROSEMARY . negative lost to Decatur. In order to finance these debates, the Literary Society had a Stunt Show. This show consisted of four acts, each act being presented by one of the classes. Again the class of '19 was successful in getting three votes to two for the sophomores. The latest achievement of the Literary Society is the successful management of the All-School party. The first party of this type was given on the evening of March 27, 1918. All members, faculty and alumni of the school Were invited to attend. The first part of the evening was spent in games, and the last half consisted of dancing for those who chose, and games for the others. On a whole, the party was considered a success and is likely to be made an annual affair. Thus far the Literary Society has benefited the Urbana,High School, and it is hoped that in the years to come it will still continue to serve its purpose. Z , I Sixty-six I 1 mmlmmmmm THE ROSEMARY ALPHA SIGMA RI-IO Alpha Sigma Rho society was established for the purpose of promoting public speaking, and a fraternal spirit between the members of Urbana High School, who have represented the school in the forensic art. The society was established in the early spring of 1916. The school had felt '5""93'a' for some time the need of some means of giving recognition to the students who have been prominent in the different forms of public address. The society has two classes of members, honorary and active. The active members become automatically honorary members upon graduation. All alumni who have represented the school, be- fore the establishment of the society, were declared members, and likewise are debate coaches or any instructor connected with public speaking. The society has had in the past twenty active members, and the honorary members are innumerable. The present active members include Herbert Harmison, Woody Thompson, Robert Hayes, George Sommer, Dulany Fitzhugh, James Smith and John McCammon as members of the debate teams, and Woody Thompson and Robert Hayes as winners in the Miller Medal and Charleston contests. Fitzhugh, Somers, and McCammon are the senior members of the society. Fitz- hugh, the opening speaker for the negative team, exemplifies the type of students the society has as members. Urbana has no misgivings in adding his name to the honor roll. Somers, who spoke second on the negative team, has been a creditable member of the society. This is his first and last year as an active member, however, his name will be a credit to the honor roll. McCammon, the other senior, has been for three years a member of Urbana's debate teams. He is the last of the charter members to graduate. The opportunities of this society are numerous. Parliamentary drills have been held from time to time at the different meetings. Numerous questions have been dis- cussed which have enlightened the members on various subjects. A fraternal spirit has grown up among the members which has helped to promote the art of public address. The society has been, is and will continue to be a credit to the scholastic stan- dards of Urbana High School.

Late in December a call was made for men for the debating teams. About ten men responded, among whom were Hayes, Harmison, and McCammon, veterans of preced- ing years. After a very close contest the following teams were picked: Hayes, Har- mison, and Thompson as the affirmative team, and G. Sommer, Fitzhugh, and McCam- mon as the negative team. The affirmative team met Danville and defeated them. The negative team lost to Decatur. Danville's team defeated Decatur's negative team. Woody Thompson was winner of the Miller Medal this year. On account of the war conditions all other contests were called off. l SfJ'fjl"Ill'7lf' I ' N 5 l ...- THE ROSEMARY MEMBERS OF THE ROSEMAR STAFF Y Editor-in-Chief EVAN DAVIS Business Manager RUSSELL L.

The Egyptians worked on the pyramids for centuries with un- ceasing effort. Thousands of years elapsed before the task was considered as complete. Rome was built step by step during hundreds of years and was never finished. This goes to show that man can do great things only by persistent effort. All that man knows, is gained by his experience or by the study of human achieve- ments of the past and present. All that is known and unknown existed at the begin- ning. It needs ony the toil of men to excavate the unknown. "God helps them who help themselves" was an old adage by Napoleon I. Experi- ence and good advice from philosophers has taught us to trust in Heaven and work as diligently as a bee. Such is the road to success. Success without work is a deception,- it is a grand bluff, and the day always comes when a man with such seeming luck, falls off of his perch. Go into the world with confidence in yourself. Think yourself as good as anybody, for if you don't, nobody else will. Step down into the arena of life with a firm determination to be a success and let your guiding principles be honest labor, charity and common sense. In the attempt to succeed in all world wide movements, let us enter the busy world cheerfully, and be involved in its turmoil.

Since the formal adoption of the Echo as the student paper fthe Echo has for three years replaced the Thistle, the old school magazinej, the quality and size has been gradually increased. The Echo of this school years has inserted two more pages to the reading matter and has added the feature of cartoons. The publication may be said to now rank equally with other school publica- tions and to carefully represent the standards of Urbana High. l Sf'1,'cnty-Lhrvff I THE ROSEMARY ab as 0 0 Q Qi.Qi'. eat g Ui 57 Q QQ X9 leafy Dr cmdlscgx 'it' ' X ECAUSE of the war, the annual Echo Show and Operetta were not pre- ? , J sented as usual, nevertheless the productions that were given were up to ' the standard and have displayed a great deal of Urbana's store of dramatic If V' talent. The opening event of the season was a one-act comedy presented i X " J under the auspices of the Literary Society, on the evening of the service Hag dedication. The title of the play was f'My Turn Next" and it was ably coached by Miss Roberts, the principle parts being taken by Grace Baldwin, Claradehl Wallace and Herbert Harmison, who showed rare dramatic talent in their interpretations. Minor parts were extremely well taken by Robert Hayes, Cecilia Bumgartner, Raymond Singer, and Russell Pollitt. By this time December had rolled around, all of the classes were feverishly working on plans and practices for their stunts to be presented in the annual Stunt Show. For a time, it was thought that the war would put a stop to the Stunt Show also, but after permission was given the whole school started in with a will to make the contest the best ever. The best talent in school was enlisted to assure the success of the affair and the Fourth Annual Stunt Show of Urbana High School was presented with glorious success on December 14th, in the high school auditorium. The judges gave the decision to the juniors who were wildly elated over their achievement and who really put on an exceptionally clever stunt burlesquing the mod- ern cabaret under the title "Cabaret du Gai Paris, a la Mode". Miss Ricketts coached the winners, who had a very able cast with Nelle Eiklor, Elmer Burke, Wayne Nolan, and Charles Ammerman carrying off the principle honors. Claradehl Wallace gave a very effective solo number, and Robert Hayes consumed a great deal of time with some demonstrations of Magic. Second prize was given to the sophomores who had exploited the popularity of the Orpheum, together with a rush of patriotic feeling that has swept the country in the last year, to present a stunt which appealed to a large part of the audience, more than the winning skit under the title of HA Patriotic Night at the Orpheum". Kathryn Baynes was chairman of the committee and, besides having the largest part of the responsibility of the production, she took a prominent part in the stunt by singing a military song and completing her part by a very interesting dance of the same char- acter. Miss McHarry was responsible for the coaching of the stunt and fully demon- strated her ability in that line. The seniors, under the direction of Miss Roberts, had a stunt which was very popular with many people in the audience but did not seem to meet with approval with the judges. 'ASO Long Georgie" was the name of the act, which was a miniature comic opera in form. The principals in the cast were: Robert Richards, Ted Swartz, Louise I Seventy-fou1' I THE ROSEMARY Whitaker, Donald McCaskey, Blanche Wood, Betty Beuthien, and Donald Erb. The class of '18 will graduate with the unique record of never having been able, in four trials, to appeal to the judges through the medium of its stunts. The freshmen made their initial appearance in a comic whirlwind entitled "Extra, Extra" in which they brought the comic supplements of the Sunday papers to life. Miss Kleineau coached the fledglings who had a chance to try their wings for the first time and who are sure to be able to use them to soar to the highest success in the near future. Thus ended the Stunt Show. Except for the University of Illinois Glee Club Concert, there were no dramatic offerings at school during the winter and the time passed uneventfully until the be- ginning of the senior play practice during the last part of April. Miss Roberts started in earlier than usual to look over possible plays and to hold tryouts for the various parts. The result of this preliminary work was the choice of a modern comedy by H. V. Esmond. The play had the title of "Eliza Comes to Stay" and was produced by a cast which included some of the best talent of the school. Elizabeth Beuthien, in the role of Eliza, added to her popularity among the fol- lowers of high school dramatics. Her acting was most clever and her previous experi- ence made her seem most at home and natural on the stage. In Betty, the class of '18 may be proud in having one of the most versatile stars that has ever appeared before an Urbana audience. A bright stage career is in store for her if she decides to follow that line of work. Avis Woody was a most languid and stagey actress in the part of the much spoiled star, Vera Laurence. Grace Baldwin's interpretation of the very proper aunt, Mrs. Pennybroke, was most pleasing, while Myrtle Strickland played the part of Mrs. All- away, the nurse, with a. truly professional air. Don Erb and Ted Swartz as "Sandy" Verral and "Monty" Jordan, respectively, had the two leading men's parts. Ted's work in his part was especially noteworthy and his comedy was most convincing and very clearly "got across". Russell Pollitt played the part of Sandy's uncle "Alec" in a truly polished way, while Ray Smith was a model manservant in the part of Sandy's butler, Herbert. All in all this year's senior play was most satisfactory and was a very fitting close for the school year. Miss Roberts has added one more triumph to her record of coach- ing successful high school productions and this year's graduating class goes from school with the utmost respect and appreciation of Miss Roberts' thought and interest in this work. Thus we come to the close of this year with more Stunt Shows which will probably be better and more operetta, and seniors plays which will also be improvements to be given in the future. The scenery is all down now and the school is ready to take a much needed vacation during the long, hot summer months, but next fall the curtain will rise again and we'll all be interested once more. Believe us, because we've had four fand some of us fivej years to find it out, "The Play's the Thing". W 4 6 l Smwnty-Jil-0 1 l THE ROSEMARY ODE TO PUPPY LOVE When Tommy was six he had his first case, And the Hrst thing he did was to wash up his face. He combed his hair backward, and pasted it down, And you would have thought that he owned half the town. He'd walk past her window and look wistfully up, And his heart would be tumbling like a "bull pup". But when she came toward him he'd get out of the way And be contented by thinking, "I'l1 get you some day". O, he never told her, of course she understood, That he loved her better than anyone could. But somehow his ideas were wonderously weak, For she walked off one day with a poor Sissy Freak. Then Tommy was angry and swore he'd avenge, And what he did to Sissy was not wholly strange. But the fair little lady would love him nor more, So he gave up society and started to war. But the war wouldn't have him, so he got with a gang And learned to smoke coffee, play marbles and say "dang". He left his face dirty and wore his socks out, And he cared not a "whoop" for what folks talked about. But on the day he was eleven and as big as you please He suddenly realized that he liked Mary Freeze. So he cleaned up again and .sewed up his socks, And presented Miss Mary with a real candy box. He then sent her good things both pickeled and sweet, Until he went bankrupt and threw his heart at her feet. Well, Mary liked sweets, but she had no use for a heart, So she just stepped on his and that upset the cart. Then Tommy was hopelessly lost in his grief, So he broke off again and became a lone chief. I Scz'1'vzty-sigx' I X lfnelfnimq '13 -ii. THE ROSEMARY And so he remained at the head of his clan, Until he reached High School and became quite a man. He donned his long trousers with all mannish ways And he changed even his voice to suit this new phase. He'd strut down the hall like the old king of France, And all that he thought of was-My nice new long pants. But regardless of warning by those souls above, He fell hopelessly, helplessly, smack-dab in love. O she was a beauty so sweet and so cute, And she did up her hair and was rosy like fruit. And she walked with just the least little bit of a twist, And she wore a sweet little wrist watch on her sweet little wrist. She would cast him shy glances and blush like a Queen, He knew she was the best that he'd even seen. He got him a date for the movies and then, Went to see her again and again. Of course they'l1 be married there's not the least doubt, For aren't they wise seniors, whom all talk about. Some call this the happiest time of one's life But Tom says he'll be happy when Ruth is his wife. Some folks say that puppy Iove's a contagious disease, That we're all bound to have it, be as smart as we please. Puppy love's just a habit, just one that we choose But I say it's quite pleasant and too good to lose! 5 Little boy, Pair o' skates, Hole in the ice, HeaVen's gates. EDITH FUELLE.

With the usual vigilance of the disciplinarian, she had looked over the group of upperclassmen who had, under her in- struction, become-or at least were supposed to have become-acquainted with the beauties of English poetry. She had detected Gregory Baker in the act of passing a note to Ethel Cordyne in brazen defiance to all rules regarding such correspondence. At exactly thirty-one minutes past ten Miss Lord was reading to a delighted class a sentimental poem which had not been intended for public perusal. Ethel was trying to conceal her confusion by a sudden interest in her book, and Greg- ory was sauntering leisurely to the door. Long practice had taught him the most grace- ful manner of leaving a -classroom when requested to do so, but much exprience had not helped him in preventing the angry flush that comes with the laughter of one's classmates. Indeed, it was only by the greatest self-control that he refrained from slamming the door behind him. On his way down to the coat room, Gregory felt that fate had been unnecessarily brutal. It was not easy to have his "Ode to the Sweetest Girl I Know", into which he had put the most ardent assertions of love that he could originate or remodel from Shakespeare, read aloud to scoffing classmates. Neither was it particularly enjoyable to receive a scornful glance from the girl whose opinion he carred most about and a distinct intimation that he need not attempt to win her regard. Another problem pre- sented itself. Gregory had purchased two tickets to a concert with the Behleville Sym- phony Orchestra was to give in the near future. He had intended to ask Ethel to accompany him, but to do so now would be to expose himself to further ridicule. For the moment, a wave of utter despondency came over him. He felt that he hated the whole world. He hate dthe course in English poetry, silly stuff for a fellow to study anyway, he hated the other members of the class who had laughed at his humiliation, he hated the teacher who had brought about his downfall, but above all, he hated him- self, condemning his every action and attitude with a deep and honest self disgust. Reaching his locker, he dropped his books into it with a bang. Then, pulling his cap savagely down over his forehead, he walked quickly out of the building. The turn events had taken would not, however, long sadden a healthy youth of seventeen. With characteristic change of mood, he ceased to be affected by Miss Lords' continued disfavor, and responded merrily to the good-natured chaffing of his friends. The one thing that caused him worry was his loss of faith in Ethel. Miss Lord, who was the main cause of the trouble, was not a person upon whom he could retaliate, he could only hope some outside agent would cause her disgrace. A few days later Gregory was walking aimlessly along the street in the business part of the town, stopping now and then to admire a new bizarre creation in neckwear prominently displayed by a haberdasher or looking longingly through the plate glass of the confectioner's window upon the expensive candies inside. Suddenly he was startled by hearing loud cries of "Thief! Thief! Police!" He turned quickly down a side street in the direction of the shouts and became one of an interested crowd of spctators gathered around three people: Miss Lord, a blind-man, and a stalwart police- man. Miss Lord, let it be explained here, had the custom of frequenting a little old book I Seventy-nine 1 p'l THE ROSEMARY shop in the heart of the business section. Here she often found a rare edition of some poet's works or a choice collection of verse which proved invaluable to her in her work. On this day she had discovered, almost hidden among more pretentious volumes, a book of poems by Samuel Annesley. Not content later to enjoy the delights of her bargain, she left the bookshop with her purchase, reading as she hastened along. A description of a beautiful summer night so held her attention that she became unconscious of her surroundings. Her progress was abruptly halted through violent contact with someone on the sidewalk. Miss Lord looked up to find to her horror that she had stumbled over a blind beggar, who sat near the wall imploring the help of charitable people. In the collision the little tin cup, into which donations were put, was upset and the money rolled far and wide. The blind man, instantly suspicious of an attempt to rob him, thrust out a groping hand, which found Miss Lord's coat collar with unerring swift- ness. The poor teacher was for once entirely bewildered. It was not a usual occurrence that she was so rudely interrupted in her reading, accused by a beggar of being a thief, or that her safety was menaced by frantic gestures with a placard 'fHelp the Blind". A burly policeman hurried to the corner, drawn by the man's calls of "Help! Thief! Police!" A large interested crowd gathered, only too ready to be entertained by by something unusual. Miss Lord made one hurried attempt to defend herself: "Officer, if you--" "Don't let her get away, sir," interrupted the beggar. "She's a bad 'un, tryin' to rob a poor blind cripple of his last few pennies." A murmur of sympathy passed over the crowd. Miss Lord's appearance surely did not tend to give the impressio of honesty and sobriety. Her small black hat was perched jauntily on one side of her head and her pale blue eyes seemed to be almost bursting with excitement behind her big tortoise rim glasses. During her stay in the bookshop she had acquired some picturesque streaks of dirt that added greatly to the conviction of the policeman as to her character. He shoved her along through the crowd in the direction of the police station. She protested at first, but at the hostile looks of the crowd she lapsed into a dumb wonderment as to what it was all about. Gregory all this time had been a passive onlooker. He would not have been human if he had not rejoiced at his teacher's misfortune. He tried to walk away but the pic- ture of the friendless old woman came up before him strongly. At last he hurried to the police station, where he called several of Miss Lord's business acquaintances to identify her. When the situation had been explained to everyone's satisfaction, Gregory accom- panied Miss Lord to her boarding house. She was still too dazed to say anything more than, "Thank you, Gregory. I shan't forget this." The next day marked the beginning of a genuine liking between the instructor in English poetry and the one pupils who had done most to disturb the discipline of the class. Ethel too seemed to have forgotten and forgiven the incident, for she waited for him at the door of the study room. As the two walked down the hall between classes, Gregory felt that he was in complete harmony with the world. He laughed contentedly as an almost forgotten line of Longfellow came to his mind "All things come round To him who will but wait". "Say, Ethel," he said, 'tif you haven't any other date, may I take you to the concert next Friday?" MERLE V. RAINES, '18. lEiahty l THE ROSEMARY A SELECTION OF OPTICAL ILLUSIONS false sensory impression produced by actual perception of real objects, but misinterpreted or exaggerated through ill adjustment of the organism, is termed an illusion. An illusion may produce variable impressions on dif- ferent individuals, depending on the accuracy of the sensory adjustments of the individual. False illusions, produced by misleading appearances, may be contradicted only by analogy and careful investigation. I shall deal with optical illusions only, beginning with simple and fundamental illustrations and, then, ascending to the more complicated ones. First, we have two straight lines, each an inch long, placed as in Fig. 1. You will notice that the perpen- f I Q fi K A A ,Ag XX, fd isa V V 1 W 5 -5 i is S V llfff l dicular appears longer than the horizontal. In Fig. 2, line AB seems longer than space BC. However, line AB is the length of the diagonal of the square, meaning that line AB is equal to the distance BC. I trust that my description of the true lines will not interfere with your deception. In Fig. 3 and 4, we have two sets of parallel lines. By merely drawing the secon- dary lines, as shown in the illustrations, perfect optical illusions are produced. The three human figures in Fig. 5, although of the same vertical dimensions, seem all of different height. This illusion is caused by perspective and the style in which the iig- ures are drawn. The two following examples are wonderfully deceptive. The straight lines in Fig. 6 form two true squares. The secondary elements of black and gray circles in the back ground and the black and white oblique stripes in the lines, representing the squares, produce the peculiar effect of warped squares. In Fig. 7 it seems that the lines form one set of continuous spirals. These lines are circles. The spiral secondary element in the back ground and the play with black and white produce the spiral effect on the circles. There are many other optical illusions with which we come into contact almost every day which, however, we do not notice unless our attention is called to them. The untrained eye gets the full benefit of these remarkable illusions. A careful study in mathematics and physiology of the eye reveals the true cause of these visual deceptions.

Now, as I sit in my study, I remember the words and incidentally the facts which had caused ELG. X32 the statement. I shudder, but it is not from fear, it is rather that I feel that I have tonight come close to some very great adventure. I again live iff -'s ri" over some of the happenings of the first quarter of a century that I have lived. "No, you really never can tell," I had repeated. We had met in his study after a separation of about twenty years and there we had discussed and joked about the incidents of our school's taking up military training back in '18. It was wonderful how insignificant little facts did come back to us. We remembered certain very amusing instances of the time and now as I sit here I realize their relation to larger things which have since occurred. Every good reader must know-and of course all readers are good readers--that the military training given the boys in high school had greatly helped many of them in the World War. But to return to the story of my friend. As we sat talking I seemed to find some massive, silent strength and courage around my friend. Physically, he was still the little fellow that I had known. His shoulders had a becoming stoop and his hair, which he wore pomapdour, was graying around the temples. His clean-cut, tanned cheek was disfigured by a long scar reaching from the left cheek-bone across his upper lip to his right jaw bone. The old smile I had known played around his mouth, but it seemed to have a fuller, larger meaning. It was hard to believe that this man- my friend of yore, the weakling I had known,-was the man who had come to be the pet of a nation, the man who had been able to turn the tide of battle in the West. Finally, I prevailed upon him to tell his story. Slowly at first he began, humbly interjecting questions, queries, and remarks about the old days. As he remembered some old story, he would chuckle silently, but as the story advanced, the leaned for- ward in 'his chair and the scar on his face glowed and whitened intermittently. He was living it all over again. Now, as I sit here, the facts of his wonderful adventure come back to me. I can see him now. He had got into the army somehow. He had survived by some hook or crook all the awful grills they were put through. Then they were placed in the first line trenches. I can see him now as he stepped forward, offering himself for spy service. He was accepted-wewere hard up for men then. He spoke the enemy tongue well. He was given an enemy uniform and enemy accouterments. He was given a badge which stated that he was a member of the enemyfs secret service. This was to aid him in passage through their trenches. He was to get back of their lines and-. These were his only orders. He bade his fellows good-bye and climbed out over the parapet through the barbed wire. ' There he lay within hearing of his own friends. Should he call out and go back? Why had he gone? The occasional starshells lit up all his surroundings, but he was in as much danger from his own forces as from the enemy, so he began to crawl forward. For three and a half hours he crawled on, now bumping into a corpse, now falling into a shell hole. Once he tumbled into one which contained a dying foe. He conversed with him a few minutes and then crawled on. He was powerless to help there. Finally he came to the first line of barbed wire, which protected the front row of th enemy's I Eighty- three 1 DLT- THE ROSEMARY trenches. But even though he could hear the guttural voices of the foe, he realized that his chances of getting into the trenches were small. Should he crawl under? Should he signal that he was wounded? Should he make his way back across No Man's Land? Just then, he heard the sound of men approaching. Here were friends and so, re- lieved, he started toward them. A starshell showed him eight spiked helmets. Then he suddenly remembered his own spiked helmet, so working in the direction of the men, he finally lay shoulder to shoulder with them. He made a pleasant remark about the weather and asked about the events of the night. His friends had no remarks to make about the weather, but they 'fsure had caught the Yanks napping". They 'fhad looked into the very face of the enemy as they hung over the parapets of the enemy." My friend then chuckled softly and moved along with the squad. His companions talked but little, seemingly dead tired. His squad was challenged several times, almost sleep- ily it seemed. In this way my friend was able to learn the countersign. Finally they came to a cut in the barbed wire and they climbed down into the first line trenches. They marched in column about one hundred paces. This march was strangely un- eventful. He could feel the deep and heavy atmosphere surrounding the men as they stood in the still darkness that precedes dawn. Nervous? Yes, inwardly. Outwardly appearing as sleepy as his comrades, but it is safe to say that he would have jumped more than a few inches if he had heard a gun fall or a twig snap. There appeared to be a lull or quiet as before a battle. A halt was called before the dug-out an dthe officers came down the line, flashing a light in each man's face as he gave an individual command to each. When the officer came to my friend, he started back, but as he did so the light fell on the secret service badge and making no remark, he turned and moved into the dug-out. The fact that he was seemingly free in the enemy's trenches, just before dawn, gave him courage and spirit. He advanced quietly until he came to a second dug-out. Several men and officers were visible inside. He went down the few steps and was soon wallowing with them in the dirty, lousy straw. They had heard the report of the scout- ing squad which had just come in and they were languidly commenting upon the pe- culiar circumstances surrounding the American forces. But the officers seemed to know nothing of importance, so he leisurely retired, going on down the line of trenches. Dawn finally broke and his heart pounded fiercely as he was challenged at the first communication trench. He feared his accent would not be proper. He thought he recognized the sentry as a former university friend. Again the sentry challenged him and he finally managed to give the countersign fairly well. Of course he met sentries every few yards, but as he became accustomed to them, they gave him little alarm. His time would come when he met a member of the official secret service board. So he glanced at the breast of each soldier he met-fearing to see a badge similar to his own. All day he wandered through the trenches, from first line to third line, from communi- cation trench to communication trench, from dug-out to dug-out. He could not find anything to eat so he went without. He swapped stories with enemy sargeants. Any- thing or anyway to pass away the time until dusk. He had learned much by ten o'clock. The enemy was planning for a final big offensive to be launched that night. Therefore, there was small wonder that the men were resting. Then certainly was cause for the atmosphere of calm which pervaded the actions of the men in the trenches. These men dead tired. They were automators. But in the communication trenches all was vastly different. Tiny supply trains carried tons of ammunition and ordnance to a place easy of access. Here all was bustle. Men talked of the big drive, how their officers were expecting to pull a big surprise. Little by little my friend was able to piece together the points of importance to be used in theattack. He knew he must get his news to his army before dark, otherwise the plan the enemy had planned would begin to act and he was sure that would mean defeat. He devised many plans during the day for his escape. But they were all more or less fa- I Eighty-four I ,? THE ROSEMARY natical, such as hanging on the support of an aeroplane as it descended, trusting to dropping behind his own lines. But nothing seemed feasible. He realized that he would not be recognized by his friends and that he would be fired on from the enemy if he openly ran for it. Finally, he shaped out a plan that appeared to be as hazardous and foolish as any of the others he had devised. There was a certain sector of trenches which had been less fought over than some of the other. No Man's Land was about a mile wide here. The ground rolled slightly toward the American trenches and and he believed that the shell holes were far nough apart that he could make some progress toward his own lines, and now he began to act out his dramatic part. Just as the reserves were being brought up he lifted one of the tiny sub-shaped ammunition tram cars and by main strength hurled it up over the parapet through a small opening into No Man's Land. How he did it, no one knows. He has since said he was unable to lift a similar truck a few years later. Of course this caused comment, but he did not wait for any congratulations. He was up over the parapet, righting the car and pushing it down the slope directing it toward the American trenches. And then just as he made a leap into the flying car he slightly turned his head and his cheek took the first bulletin that the enemy was able to send after him. His spiked helmet stuck up above the rim of the tub and so he threw it away. Bullets were fairly burning up the iron sides of the car. Now they were using larger guns and-just then a small shell burst under the front end of the car and he was thrown into the air, and car and man fell into a small shell hole. He was shot four times while in the air and now they were putting a barrage all around the shell hole. Soon they would be dropping shells in on top of him. He was still a good half mile from his lines. He succeeded in getting the truck on the level again, and although he was paying dearly with wounds, he jumped in and was off again. The blood ran down into the bottom of the car but still he sped on. How he missed shell holes he is unable to tell. After what seemed ages, he was upset again, but this time the car completely covered him, and in his wakened condition he was unable to lift it. He fainted away and then as he came to, comrades were carry- ing him into a dugout. His wild ride had ended just in front of his own barbed wire. Ah, yes, the shrimp I had known in school was, well "You never can tell". ANoN, '18. HIS HONOR 1, u 1 T the foot of Mount Hope smoke curled up from a fire made of fir boughs. Beside the fire stood a man and a dog. The man's head was bowed in meditation and he gazed motionless into the fire. He was not more than thirty,-of strong and supple build with clean-cut features. He was sun- 1fi..,.g. 3:42 W yi fisb . . . f"---'QF burned, unshaven, and unkempt 5 his khaki clothes showed evidences of hard and strenuous wear. Suddenly he raised his head and his brown eyes Hashed the complement to his fine physique,-strength, determination, and endurance. The dog beside him was no less unkempt, its shaggy brown hair was knotted and caught with burrsg its ears ragged and flopping. The creature followed his master's every move- ment with wistful eyes, and when the man roused himself from his meditation, the dog uttered a sudden yelp and bounded upon him in ecstasy. But tonight the man did not respond to the dog's evident desire to play. Finally, the dog sat down and looked at him expectantlyg he did not understand the man's mood, the man's thoughtfulness impressed him, he missed his usual evening romp. When the man and the dog had finished their supper of dried venison, the man busied himself about the rude hut, he appeared to be making preparations to leave the fEigh.ty-firej place, for he packed a knapsack with sufficient food for a long journey. When he had completed his preparations, he sat down by the fire and proceeded to smoke thought- fully. The dog came and sat down in front of him, vaguely disturbed, his face close to the man's, his ears back and his tail wagging slowly. The man patted him and having taken a few puffs at his pipe, said slowly, "Say 'good-bye' to the mountain and the mine, Flint. Our debts are paid, tomorrow you and I return to civilization. Gad, what a life we've lived here alone-haven't heard nor seen a soul for four years." Long after the man had rolled himself in his blanket to sleep, he lay open-eyed, gazing heavenward at the myriad stars and the clear room. Against his will be found himself recalling the circumstances which had made him an exile, he caught himself reviewing his engagement to Ellen Fairbanks, the most sought after girl in New York, and descendent of a long line of noble ancestors, then the event that had changed his whole life-the failure of his father's bank, the consequent bitterness against his father and his sudden death from apoplexyg the refusal of Ellen's father to allow her to marry the son of a man whose carelessness had brought so many people to ruin and had been himself disgraced. lt was then that young Harland Brooks, determined to redeem the honor of his father, started out to make the money to repay his father's depositors and in turn to win Ellen. And so he had wandered into the prosperous West and discovered a vein of gold in Mount Hope. And tomorrow he was leaving the moun- tain to go back to Ellen and redeem his own and his father's honor. - The next morning three figures were silhouetted against the rising sun, their backs to the golden West. A man, a donkey, and a shaggy dog travelled briskly toward civili- zation. It was a thrilling day in Reno, crowds thronged the streets inthe interest of the third Liberty Loan. Everywhere flags were unfurled until the city seemed a veritable city of red, white, and blue. One person only in all that crowd, from first grade child to aged grandmother, did not understand, a personage attired in ragged khaki with a frightened dog at his heels. Suddenly he halted and gazed in amazement at the pass- ing procession. Men passed by in soldiers' uniforms, men in civilian clothes carried banners with unfamiliar slogans upon them, "Down with the Hun", "Give or Fight". He followed the crowd and heard a man say strange things about Germany, the Kaiser, Autocracy, and our boys in France. Still he did not realize and had not the courage to ask. By some instinct he felt that they wanted money and he determined to hide his fortune away-they should never have that-that was to redeem his honor. Harland Brooks sat in earnest conversation with a kindly-looking, gray haired gentleman until very late that night. When they finally went up to their rooms, the lobby was deserted and the night clerk was sleepily civil. The next evening Brooks sat alone in his room, Ellen was gone forever and his honor unredeemedg on the bed beside him were piled Thrift Stamps, War Saving Stamps, and Liberty Bonds. Furthermore, he had enlisted and had been accepted. In his pocket were his total cash assets-two fifty dollar bills. But he was happy-he was helping to make the world safe for democracy. Afternoon shadows were lengthening in the neat, clean hospital back of the lines somewhere in France. On a bed, somewhat removed from the rest, lay a Sammy-his skull frightfully injured and both arms in a sling. But he was smiling, for beside him sat the most charming of Red Cross nurses. Over and over he kept mumbling the name "Ellen", and as often she smiled and softly bade him rest quietly. It was some weeks later in a hospital in London that Harland Brooks received a call from Ellen's father. There were tears in the old gentleman's eyes as he told the boy that he had redeemed the family honor many times over. Brooks sat smiling to himself long after the old gentleman had left himg Ellen was his and his honor was redeemed and in one month he would be back again in the front line trenches. What more could a man wish? - KATHRYNE I. WATSON, '18. I Eighty-six 1 .1. THE ROSEMARY T. B. PENETRATES TI-IE LINE E was in for it now, he reflected as he wormed his way along the plowed up filth in the black. He guessed the fellows back in old U. H. S. had been about right when they had called him, Thomas Benjamin Smith, that loathsome sobriquet, Too Bad Smith. He put out his hand nervously and "T'U7'-- 'W' squashed into something-he hated to think what. A most unholy stench arose and he longed passionately for his gas mask. Reaching temporary shelter in a shell hole that opened up under him, he began to think confussedly what had brought him out on this hair-brained escapade. It must have been something very near bravery and yet, he knew he was not brove. Even in high school he had always had to exert himself to make himself noticed. It was the same here. The indifference of his bunkies had begun to gall his sensitive soul. He simply had to do something to assert himself. The impulse of the moment had done its work. It was all very simple, and now here he was in this hell of a mess. At last his soul cleared. He was in for it and he wouldn't go back until he had done somebody in, or had been done in himself. This decided, he took a fresh grip on himself and crawled on toward the enemy trenches between the intervals of the star shells. Suddenly he fell over a prostrate body, which the next star shell revealed to be that of a German private. This latter had a most diabolical grin on his face but he was quite dead, poor devil! T. B. was glad of that. Moreover, he must have been rather lately deceased, for he was still in excellent condition. T. B. now had his one brilliant idea of the night. He hastily disrobed the non-resisting Hun, pulled his de- spised uniform over his own mud stained khaki and left him, still smiling that ghastly grin, beside his equally dead comrades. It was still quite black when T. B. began to move quickly toward the enemy trenches, carefully skirting gaping shell holes and the other unpleasant fortuities of No Man's Land-more appropriately Dead Man's Land. As luck would have it, he fell into the straggling end of a tired, cursing, working party just returning to their trenches. He felt his way with the rest and presently found himself behind the trenches in the enemy's land. T. B. took a speedy and surreptious farewell of the working party and, alone once more, stroked the eyebrow he was nourishing on his upper lip-but which had spread lately all over his face-with a congratulatory finger. Yes, but what should he do now, he was here? Nothing to do but keep moving. He spied a light in a cottage window a long way off and made slowly toward it. He suddenly realized that he was desperately hungry. How could one be brave on an empty stomach? He felt for his canteen. Gone! He must get food. He crawled up to the window and peeped in. The clock on the stone mantel over the hearth registered one fifteen. Time was flying and he must get back before light. Strange to relate a girl was stirring something in a kettle over the fire-something that steamed up in the most appetizing manner. He flattened his nose against the pane to see better and in- advertently kicked over a tin dish, set out for the cat. At the clatter, the girl turned a startled glance toward the windowg then she ran over to it and, pressing her face against the glass, peered intently out, straight into the desperate eyes of poor T. B. Caught! He would have to bluff this thing out now. He knocked on the door and opening the latch, stuck his head in. The pretty little Fraulein shrieked and threw herself against the door, catching his head neatly in the crack, and causing his features to register surprised pain and indignation. Some few I Eighty-seven 1 THE ROSEMARY seconds passed before he could control his distorted face and when she looked around fearfully at him, he gave her a smile so ruefully winning and beseeching-rather sporty of him considering the trying circumstances-that she relaxed her hold and he gently pushed back the ofending door, entering the shadow slowly and softly. "Mein Fraulein," he began most politely with a formal boy, "mein Fraulein," curgeling his brain for some of the German he had learned in his three-year visit to the German classes in U. H. S.,-Mich bin sehr hungrig. Bitte konnen sie mir--?", but she let him get no further. "A Boche!" a boche! a sp-y-y-y!" her voice rose in shrill terror and she fell on him tooth and nail, quite taking him by surprise. In a thrice he was on the floor and she was on the top of him still shrieking, "A spy! O mama! O papa. Come quick! It is a spy I have here below-I have captured!" After various rumblings and bumpings above and on the stair, papa came ponder- ously in, candle held high in one hand, a nasty looking revolver in the other, and he looked like nothing so much as a fat infant, all dewy and rosy with sleep in his frilled night cap. His little blue eyes widened as he beheld the gray squirming figure on the fioor and his little tiger cat of a daughter scratching at it vengefully from her superior position on its chest. "Monsieur, you are dead if you move," he roused to action, pointing the revolver uncomfortably accurately at our friend T. B., and bending a stern glance upon him from that should have been merry little eyes. Later when T. B. was safely bound up on an unending amount of rope and was in no position to move hand or foot, Monsieur, the Papa remarked, as he stood warming his back before the fire, for a cotton night-shirt it must be confessed is an absurdly in- adequate garment when it comes to warmth. "Ah, my dear young friend, and so you thought that you could frighten our little Babette here and get more information for your frightfulness! Viola, but she was too much for you Mister Stupid, and now they will shoot you and then you will be gone- quite gone-so quick!" snapping his fingers. At this Babette looked piteous. T. B. was growing more and more bewildered. This language didn't sound like the German he had learned in school, but more like those dear people, the French and- "Darn it all!" he exploded, "where am I anyway?" "He speaks English, he speaks English," cried Babette. "Isn't this place German territory that I'm in? What a mess!" "But aren't you a Boche?" Babette "Me a Boche! Say, if I were free me that and come out the same pretty I'm an American and will own up to it "An American, but your uniforml' "Oh, it's a long tale," wearily, "my tion.

Papa recovered from his intense surprise at this turn of affairs enough to add, "My dear Monsieur, let me assure you that it is French territory, still intact, I am happy to say behind the wonderful French lines that you are now in. Permit me to serve you some soup!" Meanwhile, all the troublesome knots were untied and the nasty gray suit was torn off and our friend T. B. stood revealed in his mud-stained khaki. "Oh!" gasped pretty little Babette, "Vive la France! Vive le Americain!" PAULINE LOUISE KNIPP, '18.

The1'c were not many veterans in the bunch of F some thirty odd recruits-V. Green, captain and veterans center, Elmer Green an end, Swartz in the line, and Burke, McCammon, Lewis and Mad- V has ul dox, all backtield men, were the only ones who had played last year. There were, however, many of the old second team men, and several new fellows. Pettys, the veteran quarterback, arranged to come out a few days later, and thereby increased the team's chances. Coach Harper was drafted, and thus in the second week of the season the team was left without a coach. However, the services of Mr. Huffington, the manual train- ing teacher, were secured, and he proved to be a very competent substitute. Scrimmage was started the second week, and Mr. Huffington was then able to determine in part the respective merits of the different candidates. The practice game with Paxton for the next Saturday was called off by them, and the team was given a vacation. The season started in earnest the following Saturday, when the squad journeded to Tuscola. The Tuscola team had played two games, and was expecting a victory, but the Urbana fellows had a world of pep, and although some of them had never played in a regular game before, every one was determined to do his best. The game was feat- ured by the impregnable defense of the Urbana line, which held the Tuscola backs to three first downs, and by the good all-around playing of the entire Urbana team. Time and again the opponents' backs were downed for a loss by Captain Green, and their attempts at gains by the aerial route were easily broken up by our backfield men. Touchdowns were made by McCamman 123, Lewis ill, and McCaskey CID, and when the game ended the Urbana boys held a 20-0 score. The second game of the season was played the following Saturday with Decatur on the local field. Decatur was, as yet, undefeated, and was supposed to have a very strong team. With Pettys and Burke out of the game with injuries, a decided shift in the backfield was necessary. McCammon was placed at quarterback, while Maddox I iNYf77.!'fJI-f1l'l1 I i. THE ROSEMARY V. GREEN QCQ HUFFINGTON, Coach and Hendricks played the halves, with Lewis at full. This proved a very decided im- provement. Decatur received the kickoff, but were forced to punt at once. Then Urbana started on a march for their opponent's goal, and soon the ball was carried across by Maddox. With this lead Urbana never stopped, and when the final whistle blew they had secured three more touchdowns. In this game the entire team worked together as a well-constructed machine. Art Hamlin proved a surprise at left end. He and Elmer Green, the veteran right end, stopped many attempted end runs by the opposing backs, and put many a joy in the hearts of the rooters. The backfield was all that could be desired, while the line was the same stone wall as at Tuscola. On Oct. 20, after a listless week of practice, Urbana met the Mattoon team on the local field. The Urbana boys seemed to have lost their pep, while the Mattoon 'team was dangerously active. The line-smashing tactics that won the first two games seem- ingly had no effect on the Mattoon defense, while at times it was only the good work of the line that saved the day for good old U. H. S. Neither team was able to score, although each was at times within striking distance of their opponent's goal. Probably it was a good thing for Urbana for a "cinch" fsupposedlyj to stop her winning streak without putting a real black mark against our record, as it eliminated any chance for further over-confidence. The following Saturday, on a slushy, sloppy, squashy field, the U. H. S. football team vanquished Peoria Manual to the tune of 34-7. The Urbana eleven outplayed their opponents more than the score indicates. They literally pushed the ball through Peoria's defense at will-every man in his right place at exactly the right moment. Our line crashed through and downed the runner before he had even started. On the other hand, Peoria displayed a weak fighting spirit, and the touchdown by Lewis in I Ninety-th1'1'c l i'rr THE ROSEMARY PETTYS, QQBJ the first few minutes of play seemed to take all their pep. The wet field made it diffi- cult to run, and slowed down the play a great dealfor the score would have been much higher. The first score of the season against Urbana was made in the final period by Captain Newman, when he raced almost the length of the field with an intercepted pass. Another tie game was played with University High of Normal, on Nov. 3. The U. High lads played a splendid game-their interference for their runner was of al- most college perfection. The game was hard fought throughout, and Urbana deserves much credit in holding the theretofore undefeated green and yellow warriors, but with a little more punch at the right time Urbana would have carried off the honors. As it was, the ball was in U. High's territory most of the time, and the score of 6-6 is not really a fair representation of the team's strength. Monticello was our next opponent. Twenty-two men journeyed to that place on Nov. 10, and all twenty-two were able to participate in a 54-0 trouncing of the latter. The game was featured by the splendid defensive work of our quarterback. Pettys, and by the ability of all our backfield to make gains whenever it was necessary. The last game of the season, before the all-important Thanksgiving game, was played with Bloomington on the latter's field, Nov. 17. After an exceedingly hard fought game Urbana returned with the bacon, with a score of 7-0. The lone touch- down was made by Lewis in the second quarter. Lewis played his usual fine game at fullback, being the only member of the backfield who could gain at will. The whloe team did well on defense, and would have accomplished much more on the offense if it had not been for the continued penalties. Hard feeling was very evident because of the seemingly unjust penalyzing of our men. Urbana was penalzed 17 times, most of which were for 10 or 15 yards, and Bloomington only one for 5 yards. However, the game was very satisfactory from the Urbana point of view, as it showed that the team could fight against difficulties, and could hang together in critical times. I Ninety-four 1 THE ROSEMARY By far the most important game of the season, from Urbana's point of view, is the game with Champaign on Thanksgiving day. The other games are but preliminary for the main event of the season, and to beat Champaign the team would very gladly loose every other game. However, as has occurred before at Urbana, the old jinx still pursued the team. Several weeks before the game, both McCaskey and Hamlin injured their knees, and at the time of the game neither could do his best. Two nights before the game, Mad- dox, our star interference man, and most reliable defensive back, was injured while practising on the field, and his injuries necessitated his withdrawning from the game early in the first half. Scroggin, our best substitute end, and the best man on the team for winning down punts, was severely injured in an automobile accident, and was still in the hospital on the day of the game. Notwithstanding, the Urbana fellows were determined to put up the very best fight possible, and to bring home the bacon. The following line-up started the game: HAMLIN ..........,.............,...........,.,,r,,..,.,...........,..,,..,.,...... L. E.

The day was rather warm, with scarcely any breae stirring-and ideal day for a game. A record-breaking crowd-more than five thousand-were out to witness the contest which was between, as yet, undefeated teams and was to decide the champion- ship of the central part of the state. The game started at 2:30 sharp, with Urbana receiving at the west goal. On the first play, Lewis broke through the Champaign line for twelve yards, and a first down. Maddox and Pettys added a few and then Lewis again made first down through the line. For five consecutive times Urbana made first down, and soon worked the ball well into Champaign territory. Then a pause, due to a broken shoe-string, and a penalty for off-side gave Champaign a chance to get on their feet. For the moment Urbana was unable to gain, and lost the ball on downs. In that first few minutes Urbana lost the best chance of victory, for if they had received a score, the game would probably have been entirely different. The rest of the first quarter was uneventful, neither team having much advantage. The Urbana line held the Champaign backs well, often throw- ing them for decided losses. Soon after the opening of the second quarter, however, the tide turned. The Cham- paign team seemed to have more pep than the Urbana boys-probably du to the fact that they had stricter training rules-and when they opened up with their aerial attack the Urbana machine seemed to go to pieces. Champaign scored three touch downs, and three goals in quick succession, and although not despairing, the home lads seemed unable to stem the tide. After the respite between halves, however, due to the bitter and sarcastic entreat- ing of Coach Huffington and Capt. Green, the game took on a different appearance. Every pass which Champaign tried in this half was either intercepted or broken up, while, as before, Champaign was unable to gain through the Urbana line. On the other hand, as soon as Urbana obtained the ball, they started on a march for their opponents' goal. Twice in this half the Urbana backs literally shoved the ball through the hopelessly fighting defense of the Champaign team, and over the line. Much credit falls to Lewis, and to all the rest of the backfield, for their splendid work at this time. With the score standing 21-14, and with the team going once more in its accustomed style, the Urbana rooters become once more awake and seemed to take on a little life. At this time, however, Urbana met a series of reverses. Pettys, the veteran quarter back, was injured, and McCammon was shifted from half to fill his position, Burke I Nim'ty-jim' 1 THE ROSEMARY taking McCammon's place. McDonough, at right tackle, suffering from several cracked ribs, was forced to retire from the game. This slowed up the Urbana attack somewhat, and they were forced to kick for the first time during the second half. Majors, the fleet Champaign quarter-back, caught the ball, then one of the inexplicable things which sometimes happens in football gaes now occurred. Not an Urbana man touched him, and he ran through the entire team, scoring the winning touchdown for his team, for as the time was now short, it was impossible for Urbana to overcome that lead. The Urbana team here showed its mettle, however, as they kept plugging away, and it was only through hard luck that they did not score again. As it was, when the final whistle blew, they held the ball well within their opponents territory and had once again started that inestable drive for their opponents' goal. The score of 28-14 is not really a true representation of the comparative strength of the two teams. Given another chance, with all the fellows in condition, Urbana would undoubtedly hold the large end of the score. However, taken all in all, the season was very satisfactory from the Urbana point of view, and anyway, it took the State Champions to defeat us.

The gist of the speeches was "Well, I'm sorry that this is my last year", or "Well, I'm real glad I'll get another chance at Champaign next year". So we will leave it-just wait until next year. Taken altogether, the season was one of the most successful which Urbana has had for several' years. Considering that we lost only one game, and that to the state champions, we really have a record of which any school might be proud. Two members of the team were mentioned by some newspaper critics for positions on all-state teams. Captain Green was placed at center on the first team, and Lewis, on fullback, was placed on the, second team. The line this year was one of the strongest Urbana ever had and was very probably one of the strongest in the state this year. Very few gains were made against it during the season, and no team ever made more than one or two consecutive first downs. Not one opposing team scored a touchodwn against Urbana by consistent gaining through the line, while on the offense the line very seldom failed to open ample holes for the backs. The glory and honor for scores made and for games won usually fell to the backiield, but the line, and the line alone, made it possible for the backs to perform so well.
