I would rather make my announcement through the columns of the High School An- nual than any other medium. FIRST: — Because parents who take enough interest in their boys and girls to send them through High School are a desirable class of people to cater to. Young men and women who have gumption enough to get a High School education, as a general rule, possess High Grade Bra ins and can readily recognize High Grade Goods. SECOND: — People in general who read the High Schoal Annual show that they take an interest in educational affairs, which is the most esssntial factor for the welfare of any community and thus show them-selves to be desirable citizens. THIRD: — If I can successfully cater to and please this class of people and their friends, I feel confident that I shall have no trouble to satisfy the public at large. Now a word about my Famous “Crushed Fruit” Ice Cream Sodas and Sundaes. I make them just as good as I know how, using nothing but high grade material assisted by many years of valuable experience. I made good Ice Cream Sodas and Sundaes several years ago, but I can make them much better now. My increased patronage well shows that my efforts are appreciated, which is very gratifying and which cannot help but stimulate me to contin- ue to improve the quality of my goods, increase my facilities, and better my service, and in every other way conduct my business to the best possible ad- vantage for the benefit and comfort of my friends and patrons.

There is no poem in the world like a man’s life; for real life, even the most common-place, is strong-featured, if we look at it attentively. No poet would so dare to mingle sweetness and strangeness, simplicity and peculiarity, sub- limity and pathos, as real life mingles them together. Na- ture resorts to a thousand expedients to develop a perfect type of her grandest creation — man. To aid her in this, she has three wonderful factors — heredity, environment and will. When a piece of coal is thrown into the fire, we say that it will radiate a certain amount of heat; this heat is usu- ally supposed to reside in the coal, and to be setfree during the process of combustion. In reality, however, the heat energy is only in part contained in the coal. It is also contained in the coal’s environment; that is, in the oxygen of the air. The coal alone could never produce the heat, nor could the environment; the two must meet, must be combined. In the organism, or man, lies the principle of life, in the environment are the conditions of life. The one cannot exist independent of the other. Down to the last detail, the world is made for what is in it; and by whatever process things are as they are, all organisms find in nature the complement of themselves. Man finds in his environment provision for all capacities, scope for the exercise of every faculty, room for the indul- gence of each appetite and a just supply for every want. We bring into this world with us different gifts; one re- ceives gold, another granite, a third marble, most of us wood or clay. What heredity bestows is determined outside of ourselves. No man can select his own parents, but every one can, to some extent, choose his environment, and so great is his control over it that he can so direct it as to either undo or modify the earlier heredity influences. It has been well said that “from the same material one man builds palaces, another hovels — brick and mortar will be brick and mortar until the architect makes them into some- thing else.” “It is in ourselves that we are thus or thus,” says Iago. “Our bodies are our gardens, to which our wills are gardeners.” So we may plant nettles or roses; supply it with one kind of herbs or distract it with many; either to have it barren with idleness or fertilized with industry. The power and authority of all this lies in our will. Heredity bestows, environment encourages or discour- ages, but will perseveres and accomplishes. The musical talent of his father gave to Milton the genius for music in verse; the influence of refinement and culture thrown about him in youth developed the genius; but the Puritan determination of the man made him one of the grandest poets. Lord Byron inherited from both parents a " blood all meridian;” on one side rich in the enjoyment of luxury and pleasure, on the other side tingling with vehement irritability. Never was a poet born to so much illustrious and, at the same time, to so much bad blood. His mind was cast in a dark and moody mold, and he believed him- self predestined to misfortune. Being at war with himself, HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL he was torn between an element ot perversity and injured pride, and his exquisite susceptibilities together with the noble influences native to his soul. With such a tempera- ment it is not strange that at times he thought “Too long and darkly, till his brain became. In its own eddy boiling and o’er wrought, A whirling gulf of phantasy and flame.” With all his endowments, Byron lacked the one control- ing power — will — by which he might have become a pure intelligence, a serene and joyous force. The poverty of his parents made it necessary for Shakes- peare, at an early age, to help support the family. Little or nothing is known of how or when he received his edu- cation. He learned his best lessons from the school of ad- versity. Goethe once said of him: “Shakespeare always hits the right nail on the head at once; but I have to stop and think which is the right nail before I hit.” He was the man who could seize common occasions and make them great. He worked everything into his plays. He ground up the king and his vassal, the fool and his fop, the prince and the peasant, the simple and the profound, honor and dishonor — everything within the sweep of his vision he ground up into paint and spread it upon his mighty canvas. Will and determination made him the chief literary glory of England. “You will be what you will to be; Let failure find its false content In that poor word ‘environment,’ But Spirit scorns it and is free. The mighty Will, that force unseen, That offspring of a deathless soul, Can hew the way to any goal, Though walls of granite intervene. 1 The river seeking for the sea Confronts the dam and precipice, Yet knows it cannot fail or miss: You will be what you will to be.” SHAKE HANDS WITH FATE. ' Tis a sad old world, and a bad old world; It is scarce worth while at all. Its sorrows cling and its friendships sting, And even its joys will pall. But dear is life, for all its strife. And love is better than hate; You’ll find a grace in the surliest face, If you just shake hands with fate. With light in your glance and right in your glance. And your lips in a curve to the sky; A spring in your walk and a ring in your talk. Sure, hope will not pass you by. The path that you will winds over a hill, But it leads to an open gate; So trill you a song to lure love along. And just shake hands with fate.

RAY LAWRENCE ASSOCIATE EDITOR, ALICE TALCOTT BUSINESS MANAGER, - - GEORGE McNAY CLASS PRESIDENT, - - RAY LAWRENCE SECRETARY AND TREASURER, - KATE LEDERER As the school year once more draws to a close, we real- ize that we are leaving behind us the happiest days of our lives and that time once lost is never regained. We real- ize the duties that await us, and when we look back over our happy school days, wishing that those precious mo- ments once spent together might only be returned to us, we desire to leave as a final token of remembrance with our class-mates and teachers an Annual that will never be set aside. And when we enter upon life’s journey, we feel that we may safely say that after four full years of instructive work, we are partially prepared to realize what is con- tained in the sphere of life which lies beyond us. And when we shall have attained this aim, may we arise to a full comprehension of our motto: “Qualis Vita, quails ita” (As we spend life , so we end it.) THE HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI. Including the class of ’05, there have graduated from the ® Valparaiso High School three hundred and thirty-five young @ men and women. Of these twenty-three are dead and many ® have moved to other cities, but a large number still live ® in Valparaiso or its vicinity, whom the annual banquet brings together year after year to talk over the good times associated with the old V. H. S. This year’s banquet promises to be of unusual interest. Prof, and Mrs. Banta have planned to attend both the Commencement and Alumni Reunion, and many of the older members from a distance are expected. Twenty-two of the thirty-three classes who claim the High School as their Alma Mater, were graduated during Prof. Banta’s superintendency, and every class since that time down to the seniors of ’05, who were in the primary department when he finished his work here, have been identified in some way with his school administration. Preparations are being made to entertain three hundred guests in the gymnasium and manual training rooms, which are to he transformed for the occasion into reception and banquet halls. Invitations have been issued to every member of the Alumni whom the committee have been able to reach and they expect to make this banquet the brightest, happiest and most thoroughly enjoyable event of Commencement Week. “HELLO! WHO IS THIS?” This heading suggests a telephone conversation. It sug- gests to some the fact that many of us do not talk over a ’phone as we should if in the presence of the other party. Suppose one wanted to find my house on North Franklin street, would he begin at the first house above the new High School building and ring the door bells, and ask those who answered the rings “Who are you?” On the contrary, he HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 15 would inquire as to the location of my house, find it, ring the bell and inquire of the one answering if I lived there. If he happened to ring at the wrong house he would not ask “Who is this?’ ' but he would ask for me and when in- formed that I did not live there, beg pardon and ask to be directed to my house. Is there any reason why he should change this polite way when he is trying to get communi- cation by telephone? Suppose he was hunting a man said to be on the street, would he accost every man he met and ask “Who are you?” and if he did not give the name he wanted, say he didn’t want him and go for the next one he met in the same way? Not one of us would do that. If he should be so impudent and impolite, the chances are that before he had gone a block some gentleman would kick him or give him a bloody nose, as he deserved, or have him arrested pend- ing an inquiry of lunacy. The way all of us would do: We would make an inquiry and, if in doubt, we would ask if the person we addressed was the one we wanted, and not ask " Who are you?” Some of us forget all about this when we go to a tele- phone. We ring as if there was both a fire and a riot on in our dooryards. If we are not instantly answered we get nervous and speak angrily or impudently to Central. We hear a “Hello!” whereupon we yell “Who is this?” Our answer might be “Bartholomew,” then we, in a louder voice, ask “What Bartholomew?” Our answer comes “Lawyer Bartholomew,” and still louder we ask “Which Lawyer Bartholomew?” all because we had not the polite- ness in the first place to ask if the person addressed was the Mr. Bartholomew we wanted. But this is sufficient for illustration. How should a conversation be carried on by telephone? As kindly, considerately and as politely as if the parties were face to face. No one of us would ask “Who is this?” If we should do so we ought not to expect a better answer than “Who do you think it is?” or “Guess!” An example: Central — “What number?” W. — “592, please.” (A hello.) W— “Is this The Best?” Ans. — " It is.” W. — “May I speak to Miss Stoddard?” Another: “Is this Mr. Golightly’s residence?” Ans. — “Yes, sir.” W. — “Will Miss Gwendolin favor me by coming to the phone?” (A soft hello.) W. — “My dear Miss Gwendolin, I have been exceedingly unhappy ever since I left you last night. I feel that the lan- guage I used to tell you of my love for you did not begin to give you its heighth, depth and breadth, and I want to unburden my » ” In the interest of good manners and of polite and pleas- ant telephone intercourse, let us bar the impudent and im- polite “WHO IS THIS?” HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. lb HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL DESCRIPTION OP NEW CENTRAL SCHOOL. The Valparaiso City High School is a building of which the people may well be proud. The civil city being bond- ed to the limit, the state legislature passed a law that the school city might, by the vote of the people, permit the school board to issue bonds for the construction of neces- sary buildings. Two years ago our board complied with this law, and bonds to the amount of $44,988 were issued for this purpose. We now have a building consisting of twenty-three rooms to be used for school purposes. The basement is built of concrete and Joliet stone. The main part is the best quality of pressed brick. A tile roof adds much to the architectural appearance as well as to the durability of the building. The high school occupies the entire second floor which consists of an assembly room with a seating capacity for two hundred and twenty-five pupils. This room is finished in Dutch bronze which appeals at once to the artistic eye. On this floor are rooms for each of the following depart- ments: Science, Mathmatics; Latin, English, German, History and Typewriting. The library and superinten- dent’s office are also here. The rooms open into large hall- ways at the end of which are the toilet rooms. The first floor consists of ten well lighted recitation rooms opening into spacious halls. In these halls are lo- cated the open cloak rooms. The seventh and eighth grade departmental work is located here occupying five of the largest rooms. The basement is well lighted. In consists of Kinder- garten, Teachers’ club room, Chemical Laboratory, and two rooms, each ninety by thirty to be used for boys’ and girls’ gymnasium, manual training and domestic science. The building is heated by steam, and it is ventilated by indirect radiation which has proven very satisfactory. The school board should be commended for making some necessary changes in the material even though it cost a little more realizing as they did that the building would stand as a monument to the people for many years. School men and architects have pronounced it one of the best constructed and best arranged school buildings in the state of Indiana. Nothing more need be said. The building stands ready for inspection from basement to garret. 18 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL THE OLD CiJNTRAL SCHOOL BUILDING HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 19 I IN MEMORIAM I t() I Old Mr. V. H. S.

S. has taken on a “Modern Reformation.” The effect has been prominent in the Oratorical field and still more no- ticeable in Athletics. It was a cluster of anxious countenances that assembled one evening to the call of our superintendent, supposedly for the purpose of receiving a serious lecture on moral con- duct. Great was the mingled joy and consternation of the boys when the good secret, that Mr. Hughart held, was re- vealed. It was indeed an interesting one, as it especially appealed to the wishes of the entire assembly. A Track Team was the subject for discussion. Could we be the organizers of such a delightful and beneficial sport? Could we contest on the field of battle the efficiently trained high schools of Porter county and keep up the level of Valpos sports? A hasty decision might be later termed as a blunder, so it was thought expedient that the decision should be postponed for deliberation. The ensuing night the question was brought to a vote. What was the result? Was there anyone so rash as to manifest a “nay?” If there was, his voice must have been cracked and the support of the good cause may be termed unanimous. “Track Team” was the topic for discussion on the street corners for a few days. The trend of thought in every conversation could be traced to the above named sport. The team was yet to organize. Who were to be its officers? At a later meeting it was decided that Gordon Durand should assume the responsibility as captain and Wood Wilson should serve cojointly as secretary and treasurer. Now came the difficulty. Cash was to be raised. Were we to look abroad? No, a uniiorm tax was placed on all the boys, with which to purchase our implements of war- fare. We now retreated to the fair grounds and were enshrouded in deep mystery for a short time. After about a week’s crude practice, our condition was certainly critical. No definite end was looked to. Enthu- siasm was lacking. A business meeting was called and a private council was held. What could we do to stimulate the actions of the team? It was at this meeting that the most potent factor in our early history expressed his sympathy with our work. 22 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL ATHLETICS— (Continued.)

Truly the Bridgets have made themselves felt in the V. H. S. during the past year. “A Bridget Supper’ ’is a com- mon phrase on the lips of the V. H. S. ladies and many a soft serenade has been poured forth under the window from the lips of a hungry O. M. S. in the hope of obtaining a delicate morsel. As yet, there has been none of the opposite sex fortunate enough to sit down to one of those delicious repasts, which are said to be “for members only;” i. e., Grace Leonard, Nellie Brooke, Florence Lytle, Amadel Kellogg, Verna Duggan, Jane Dalrymple, Martha Finney and Kate Swartout. “Here’s to the jolly Bridget girls, Here’s to the girls that cook, Here’s to the girls that laugh and smile And never use one cook book. Here’s to the boys who help them out, Also that help them eat (?) Here’s to the day they always meet, The very last of the week.” 0. M. S. Last fall several of the boys in the High School were struck with a brilliant thought. For some time the idea of having a club had been gaining favor, so the aforesaid High School hoys, with a few more, decided to form a High School club. After much discussion as to whether it should be a secret society or simply a “club,” the boys decided to organize a club which should hate for its motto “Eat, drink and be merry.” i As some of the members wished to have something secret about the affair, it was decided to withhold the full name from the general public and let only the initial letters oe known. Accordingly when it became known that a new club had been organized, called the 0. M. S., each and every one in the High School immediately declared that they knew what O. M. S. meant The O. M. S. boys have been greatly amused at the conjectures, which were everything, from “Oh, My Sakes ” to “Old Maids’ Society. " The poor inno- cents may be somewhat excused for inferring the latter, though. The O. M. S. boys wished that their meetings should be strictly “stag,” but that the girls might not be entirely ex- bluded it was decided to give each member a “feminine ap- pelation.” The following characteristic names were adopt- ed: Ray Marine— “Maria.” (We all know his propensity for knitting and sassafras tea.) John Earle — the blushing, the coy — " Phoebe.” Hiram Miller— whose very appearance brings up mem- ories of husking bees — “Mirandy.” DeForest Evans — on account of his angelic smile and sweet disposition — “Eva.” Lee Harrington— “Hattie Belle.” Tut, tut, keep quiet! Gene Eaton — “Jane.” He always intended to be a mis- sionary. Byron Smith— when you think of his stylish appearance, what would you call him but — “Samanthy.” Harold Harrison— We call him “Cecilia” on account of his saintly and musical nature. Guy Carr— the gushing— “Carry.” Dee Longshore — his failing for “ ” — “Polka Dot.” HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL 24 Cleve Stalbaum — “Cleopatra. " “It was I who captivated Antony.” Neil Arvin — “Nanny.” What an appropriate name for a gossip. The O. M. S. has proven to be an ideal means for furnish- ing good times, not only for its members, but for others. The boys have met every two weeks since last October, for all kinds of fun — from all-night sessions in bakeshops to receptions. It is the hope of all the members that the club may hold together for many years to come and, from present indi- cations, we think it will. “They met by chance, They had never met before; They only met that once, And she was smitten sore. They never met again — Don’t want to, I avow; They only met that once — A freight train and a cow.” Zada has a new pair of green slippers, which she wears occasionally.

Cleve Stalbaum. ’Tv as a warm day in September, four years ago. A crowd of H. S. boys and girls thronged around the old Central School building as the bell announced that vacation was over and that school had begun again. At the south door the Freshman boys were being initiated by those of higher degree, into that noble order, the V. H. S. For this ordeal the number of boys was not so great as that of the girls, who outnumbered them two to one. This, then, was the Senior class of to-day, or rather, the Senior class of to-day is the remains of those sixty beings who bore the name of " Freshies.” The history of this class through the next two years was only a struggle, hard but uneventful, and in those two years more than two-thirds dropped from the ranks. The next year the scene of the struggle was changed. The old building was torn down to make way for a larger, better, more magnificent structure. The entire High School was installed in cramped quarters above what is now the post office. This had its drawbacks, but the Junior class went on in its old unassuming way. The next year they found themselves addressed as Seniors, and to add to their dignity, class pins were pur- chased, the finest yet obtained by any class (at least in price). But, alas! what a sight! Less than a dozen re- mained to share this dignity or end the fight Their position called forth a challenge to a debate from the ambitious, honor-seeking Juniors. Too proud to sur- render without a fight, they accepted; but were defeated on the question; “Resloved, That the Chinese should be ad- mitted to American citizenship.” The Senior trio took the affirmative side and the best chance for defeat. Not daunted by their defeat, they decided to try their oratorical power and succeeded in sending four out of six candidates to the second contest, which marked the dedica- tion of the new High School building. But defeat again awaited them. This was soon forgotten amid their new surroundings. For the next week they left their old quarters, not without sighs of regret, and entered the new building. At first they could not speak distinctly on account of the echoes. Nor could they breathe without odors of varnish or smoke, but these difficulties soon passed away and they settled down to the completion of their work as the first class to gradu- ate from the New Central building.

DOOLEY” ON EXPERT TESTIMONY. “Anny thing new?” said Mr. Hennessy, who had been waiting patiently for Mr. Dooley to put down his newspa- per. “I’ve been r-readin’ th’ tistimony Iv th’ Lootgert case,” said Mr. Dooley. “What d’ye think iv it?” “I think so,” said Mr. Dooley. “Think what?” “How do I know?” said Mr. Dooley. “How do I know what I think?

A man needs to be all iv thim things to detarmine annything about a murdher trile in these days. This shows how intilligent our methods is, as Hogan says. A large German man is charged with put- tin’ his wife away into a breakfus’-dish, an’ he says he didn’t do it. Th’ question, thin, is: Did or did not Alphonse Lootgert stick Mrs. L. into a vat, an’ rayjoose her to a quick lunch? Am I right?” “Ye ar-re,” said Mr. Hennessy. “That’s simple enough. What th’ Coort ought to’ve done was to call him up, an’ say: ' Lootgert, where’s ye’er good woman?’ If Lootgert cudden’t tell, he ought to be hanged on gin’ral principles; f’r a man must kepp his wife around th’ house, an’ whin she isn’t there it shows he’s a poor pro- vider. But, if Lootgert says, ‘I don’t know where me wife is,’ the Coort shud say: ‘Go out an’ find her. If ye can’t projoose her in a week, I’ll fix ye.’ An’ let that be th’ end iv it “But what do they do?

What has that collection iv pure-minded pathrites to larn fr’m this here polite discussion, where no wan is so crool as to ask what anny wan else means? Thank th’ Lord, whin th’ case is all over, th’ jury’ll pitch th’ tistimony out iv th’ window, an’ consider three questions: ‘Did Lootgert look as though he’d kill his wife? Did his wife look as though she ought to be kilt? Isn’t it time we wint to sup- per?’ An’, howiver they answer, they’ll be right, an’ it’ll make little diff’rence wan way or th’ other. Th’ German vote is too large an’ ignorant, annyhow.” THE TRIALS OF AN EDITOR. At the table in his sanctum Sat the editor-in-chief. And his face looked drawn and haggard; he wore signs of recent grief. There were only two more hours, Ere the paper went to press, And his brain was in a muddle, And his manuscript a mess. Of copy he had just enough To fill up half the space; So you’ll see he had good reason For such a mournful face. Had developed every plot he knew, In stores quite romantic; And displayed his erudition In editorials pedantic. He had read and read exchanges, Full of articles inane; Published poem after poem, Till he almost went insane. From epic down to jingle. And in every kind of verse, It was handed in the bunches. Till it made him want to curse. Every would-be doggerel writer Tried to do his little stunt; And our dear, good-nearted editor Had to bear of it the brunt. The lamp was getting lower; With a splutter and a flare. It went out, and left the editor A-slumbering in his chair. Execrating would-be poets, At last he’d gone to sleep, And dreamed he was in Heaven, There his just reward to reap. He was set upon a pedestal Of onyx, pure and white. Where a poem ne’er could reach him. And where everything looked bright. For no matter what your life may be, They never count your sin If you’ve held the job of editor — ’Tis enough to let you in.
