History of the Class of 06. ND it came to pass during the latter clays of the reign of McKinley, The Good, that upon the first day of the week, early in the morning there came unto the Old Central Building, fifty stalwart youths and comely maidens. And they all entered in and found a certain one, Mr. Geary, a man of power. Moreover, they were much perplexed whether to take the straight and narrow road which leadeth unto the land of Latin or the broad path which leadeth to the palace of German, when behold two stood before them in shining raiment and gave them advice. After which it came to pass that twenty-eight followed the steep and rugged way of Latin under the direction of The Sibyl. Miss Benney, and twenty the difficult but beautiful path of German under Mr. Reece, while it was ordained that all stand united battling for the value of ‘ x ’ under the banner of The Man of Might, Mr. Skinkle. In due time was the first year of their probation passed, and when the three months of vacation were accomplished they entered the Promised Land, the delectable mountains of the High School Room. Here they met many wise teachers, Miss MacQuilkin, the Law Giver, Miss McIntyre, versed in all the learning of the Egyptians, and Mr. Miller, who understandeth even the hidden secrets of nature. And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from the School Board that there be built a new V. H. S. And when the “ Day of Moving ” was fully come they were all with one accord in the crowded but happy abodes above the Post Office. And here it was ordained that they spend their Sophomore Days. And it came to pass that on the ninth day of the eleventh month in the second year of Roosevelt, The Mighty, there was organized a club which was to be known as the C. E. C., and Neil Arvin led the band and behold Gene Eaton, Verna Duggan and Adah Maxwell were by him. And again it came to pass that on the seventh day of the second month of the year of rejoicing, even the hundredth year of the Louisiana Purchase, one of their number Ethel, daughter of Burckhart, spoke unto the class saying: “ Come ye all unto my house.” And so soon as they heard this they took therefore two chariot horses and the leader sent after the host saying: “ Come let us go up and possess the good things which the land affords.” And on the twenty- third day of the second month in the same year it came to pass that they were royally entertained in the house of Mabel, daughter of Ray, the same being a Leap Year Gathering. And after these things, the closing events of the year were a journey of the HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. II C. E. C. to the dwe lling of one Bertie, daughter of Dunlap, and DeForest, son of the wise healer, Evans. And it came to pass in the second year of the reign of Roosevelt, The Mighty, in the ninth month and on the fourth day of the month, that they were again assembled together. And there was sorrow in the hearts of these people, for it had been ordained that some of their number be taken from out of their midst. Among these, Ellen, who had taken unto herself a husband, one John Kuehl, and Anna likewise had taken unto herself one Charles Edwards for a husband. And after these things the History Class was split in twain; some of the number choosing to form strange characters of hidden meaning which in their speech is called Phonography, under a wise priestess, Miss Jones. And in the fourth month of the year the Seniors sent messengers unto the Juniors and said unto them, “ Thus sayeth the Seniors: ‘ We challenge you to a debate.’ ” And the Juniors answered: “ Verily we will do thy will.” And according to this saying was the debate, ‘‘Resolved, that Chinese Emigration be Restricted.” And it came to pass that Gene Eaton, Ray Marine and Gordon Durand were the chosen spokesmen for the Juniors, and they did also win the debate. And likewise in the second year of the reign of Roosevelt, The Mighty, there was organized among the people a company called a Debating Society with Clara Marquart and LeRoy Morrison leading them. And the Sophomores also sent messengers unto the Juniors challenging them to a debate. Now therefore the Juniors called the sons and daughters of their class together and the assembled elders cried out with a loud voice saying: “ We choose Bertha Tofte, Neil Arvin and Harry Doege as leaders.” But the Sophomores failed to keep the day and nothing came to pass therefrom. And in the third month of the year they were honored by having two of their number, Ray Marine and Jane Dalyrymple, chosen for the Second Preliminary Contest in Oratory, in which Ray Marine prevailed. And it came to pass that in the third month of the same year the Juniors assembled at the house of one of their number, Bertha, daughter of Tofte, the same being a Tacky Assemblage. And behold they came as pilgrims from the east, the north, the west, and the south in strange and worn garments of divers colors, even like unto the coat which Jacob made for Joseph. And after these things on the first day of the fourth month in the same year they left the scenes of their Sophomore Days and journeyed unto a new home, even the pleasant land of the new V. IT. S. And the year was drawing to a close and Leon Harrington ruled the people; therefore he called together an assembly of the sons and daughters of the class. And it was ordained that they should show kindness unto a kindred tribe who were about to leave their midst, even the Seniors of that year. And behold it was the springtime and they went forth together toward the north where the sweet waters are like unto a land flowing with milk and 12 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. honey, even unto Flint Lake and they sat down together and did eat and make merry until a late hour and all enmity was forgotten and there was peace in the land. And it came to pass after many days that they were again assembled under the same wise counsellors save that Miss Dunwell, who speaketh a foreign tongue had been added unto them. And to the class was added one Irving, son of Jones, who came from out of the Land of Wheeler, and also Freda, daughter of Bruns, and for her great wisdom came this honor unto her. And Leon Harrington now in the second year of his ruling over the people called unto the Assembly in a loud voice saying: “ The time is now ripe that ye choose a class pin.” And there was chosen a disc of gold with magic characters upon it, even Y. H. S. ’06. And the year was drawing to a close and a handful of the maidens said unto one another: “ Come we wish to be teachers of the people, let us go unto the wise counselor of this whole tribe, even unto the man of peace and justice, Mr. Ilughart, and he will teach us many things whereof we know not now.” And it was so that in the Pedagogy class they came to understand even themselves. But these and many other deeds, behold, are they not written in the hearts of each one of these people who have sojourned in this pleasant land from the last days of McKinley, The Good, even unto the fourth year of Roosevelt, The Mighty.

The Ideal American. WON FIRST PRIZE AT PORTER COUNTY ORATORICAL CONTEST, APRIL 21 , ’ 06 . OUR long centuries ago there lay a vast continent, rich in natural resources, uninhabited and undiscovered by civilized man. One day, as if by magic, a man, daring enough to venture out upon the stormy seas, came su ddenly upon this unknown land and returning, told of its wonders and grandeur. Now and again, small bands of people, persecuted and oppressed, ambitious and industrious, made their way to this country in search of liberty. Years rolled on; the colonies became an independent nation growing in wealth, importance and power. But one thing America lacked. Her leaders, the men who held the national sceptre, were not her own. Their characters were due, not to American environment, but to that of England, France or Germany. America was waiting for a real American. At last he came, “ the new birth of our new soil,” not only the ideal American but an ideal man. lie was the product of lowly environment, endowed by Nature with those invincible qualities which lead men in the pathway of Fame. Honest, ambitious, courageous, with a soul so great and a spirit so humble, this man blazed his way out of the wilderness in which he was born, step by step, until he stood at the head of the nation. Loved by his equals, worshipped by the masses, we have today the noble example of the highest type of American manhood,— Abraham Lincoln. Born in the humblest of Kentucky cabins, Abraham Lincoln was indeed, “ a new Moses in the solitude of the desert, where are forged all great and obstinate thoughts, monotonous, like the desert, and, like the desert sublime.” A child was born to an inheritance of want; a boy grew up in a narrow world of ignorance; a youth took up the burden of manual labor; a man entered on the doubtful struggle of a backwoods career and was raised by his fellow-citizens from one position to another until the nation, realizing that he had come like John of old from out the wilderness for a great and mighty mission, pl aced in his hands the reins of government. The black clouds gathered in Freedom’s sky; the wrath of the slave- holders flashed as the lightning; the rending of the states followed like the thunder crash ; and last came the storm of prayers and curses of human slavery. Then the woodman, the son of the West, the descendent of the peace- ful Quakers, humblest of the humble before his own conscience, greatest of the great in the eyes of the people, ascends the seat of Empire. Before him a veteran army plods; behind, stands hostile Europe, ready, at a moment’s notice, to lower the uplifted axe; and in his hands, the riven nation. The pulse of many thousands throbbing in his heart, he arises in majesty, calls to arms two- HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 15 million men, gathers supplies, directs his army over twelve hundred miles a week from the banks of the peaceful Potomac to the rugged mountains of Tennessee, equals at Gettysburg the deeds of Alexander and Caesar. Then, after striking by a single bold and mighty stroke, the shackles from three millions of oppressed humanity, he dies, a martyr in the moment of victory, the clay with which he molded the magnificent liberty of our country scarcely dry. He dies leaving us a memory which stands colossal before all others, — the memory of an ideal American. Lincoln was the American of Americans, the best and noblest type of an indigenous democracy such as several generations of independence and self- government had produced in the lowly life. He stands a notable exemplar of the American of the nineteenth century, the natural development of the self- reliant English stock upon this continent. In him were the traits of the Kentucky knight, the ingenious fertility for contrivance of the New England Yankee, with all the breezy, unconventional boldness of the Westerner. In short, his blood was drawn from the veins of every section of the Union ; of the Bast, North, and South, together with the pioneer growth of the great North- west, his nature equally partook. Reared in the forests amidst ignorance, poverty and darkness, Lincoln had developed a character beautiful, symmetrical, mighty. It was the strong vitality, active intelligence, indefinable psychological law of moral growth which assimilates the true and rejects the false that Nature gave this obscure child which impelled him to the service of mankind and the admiration of the ages with the same certainty with which the acorn grows to be the oak. An ordinary man would have found in the wild West a commonplace life varying only with the changing ideas and customs of the times and locality. But for a man with extraordinary power of body and mind, for a man gifted by Nature with a genius such as Abraham Lincoln possessed, the pioneer education with its severe training and self-denial, patience and industry was favorable to the growth of a rare personality that qualified him for the duties of leadership and government and crowned him with the love of the people. Grant was great ; Lee was noble; Washington was sublime; but Lincoln, who came from the lowly heart of the people comes back nearer to that heart than any other man of the centuries. At the nation’s crisis there came from Illinois an untried man. The crisis passed; he returned too great for a state alone, a mighty conqueror, a nation’s hero, a world’s example! “ In the midst of this great continent his dust doth lie, a sacred treasure to myriads who pilgrim to that shrine to kindle anew their patriotism.” The incessant winds, that move over the mighty places of the west, chant the solemn requiem of this martyr, whose blood like so many articulate words, pleads evermore for fidelity, for law, for liberty. JANE DALRYMPLE. Un flfeemortam In memory of Bessie Parks, who entered the Valparaiso High School September 5, 1904, and died March 7, 1906. Her name was found on the honor roll for scholarship each month. Her work was not only accurate and complete but original beyond her years. She was kind to her classmates, thoughtful of her teachers, helpful to all with whom her lot was cast. She had no enemies and was most tenderly loved by her friends. While fond of a frolic, she never intentionally or thoughtlessly harmed any one with her fun. Life was to her full of joy and promise and we mourn her absence from our midst every day but rejoice that God has given her a better por- tion, even immortal life. HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL.

WHAT THE CLASS OF 06 STOOD FOR. VERY Class which enters and leaves the High School must stand for something whether it he much or little. But it need not adopt a set of resolutions or a motto which shall represent the standard of the class, for the real standard can only be found in what the class has accomplished during its history. The Class of ' 06 never held a mass meeting at which they adopted with great solemnity a list of resolutions in which they sought out the longest words of Webster’s vocabulary, nor did they patch together some Latin or Greek phrases as their motto. They made their motto in actions so clearly that every- one reading their history must see and understand it. r l he Class of 06 stood for one thing — Progressiveness — throughout their life as a High School class. Progress marks everything they have attempted, from the time they entered High School as Freshmen in 1902 to the 25th of May, ’06, when they graduated with the highest honors that have ever fallen to any class in the school. As Freshmen in the crowded room so graciously allotted them by the school authorities they soon forced themselves upon the attention of the school and the faculty as Mr. Geary’s “ Star Class.” During the period of the school’s exile, over the Post Office during their Sophomore and Junior years they were the most attractive class in school. As Sophomores they organized a literary society known as the Current Event Club, and for a long time enjoyed the benefits of that society. It was in this Club that the germ of debating and oratory was nursed, which later brought the class to its zenith of glory. It was 18 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. here that they, as Sophomores, did the unheard of thing of holding a debate among themselves, the Senioi-s and Faculty staying to see what they could do. It undoubtedly was not as polished and eloquent as it might have been, but it was the starting point for the defeat of the Seniors at the hands of the Juniors the following year. As Juniors they undisputedly won the championship in debating and oratory, defeating the Seniors in an interclass debate and forcing the Sopho- mores, who had begun to claim championship to everything in the school, to recognize their superiority without a contest. Nor did they stop here; they pitted five of their number against the entire Senior Class in the Oratorical Contest and won the representation in the First County Oratorical Contest and there came off with second honors. In the social line they went further than their predecessors. They organized the O. M. S. and The Bridgets, which came to be known as the leading social organizations in the school. The same year they found the door of opportunity open in a different way and showed their progressiveness by sending into the Phonography Department the first class which has ever completed the full two years course. They entered this new line over the protest of many members of the faculty who were horrified at this innovation an d who sought every means to prevent them from entering, some going even into open hostility against that depart- ment. But the Juniors’ determination won and that department now enjoys great popularity, not because it is new, but because it is one of the most helpful. How this spirit of progressiveness was shown in their Senior year is so plainly shown in the class history that we need not call attention to it. The spirit of progress was the spirit of the Class of ’06 through all of its school days and that spirit has so strongly found a hold in the character of each individual in the class that it cannot but help manifest itself in years to come through its several members. The Class of ’06 stood for progress and advancement in school and it will continue to stand for progress as long as the members of the class remain on the earth. HARRY DOEGE. HIGH SCHOOL GIRLS. HERE are many kinds of girls, and you find several of these kinds in High School. There is the giggling girl, the studious girl, the society girl, the quiet little maiden, the boy-struck girl, the girl who thinks the High School can not run smoothly unless she is there, and last, but by no means least, the “ all round ” girl. The giggles are like the mumps. Everyone has them at one time or other, but some get over them sooner than the rest. Anything and everything is funny to the giggling girl. If three hairs on someone’s head lie north-north- east when they are supposed to lie north-west, off she goes into a fit of giggles. If someone drops a book, she is the victim of another attack. If she sees a HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 19 girl’s ribbon fluttering as she walks down the aisle, she has another spasm. Anyone or anything may be the cause. They say there is a funny side to everything if people could see it. Our giggling girl finds it all right, for no matter how serious affairs may be, she is apt to break out with the giggles at any moment. The studious girl never gets the giggles, or stops to whisper or to do any of those things which most girls consider some of the essentials to happiness. She studies. She always has her lesson, and remembers all we have gone over. She never says, “ That wasn’t in my book,” or she “ couldn’t find anything on that ” for she hunts high and low until she does get it. All the teachers can depend on her, and when the rest fail, she ean answer. She belongs to the reliable kind. In contrast to our studious maid is the society girl. She rarely has her lesson, and if she does it is usually not her fault, for she borrowed it from a classmate or there was nothing going on that she could attend. If there is a play or a supper, reception or a dance, our society lassie is there, and had no time and was too tired to get her lessons afterwards. Many like her for she is sweet and sociable, but my, how she does flunk on “ exams!” She has a good time but she pays for it all at the end of the credit. Alas! The boy-struck girl — we all know her so well, that there is no need of describing her here. Needless to say, there are a few specimens of this type in our High School. Most of us feel very sorry for her because she is thus afflicted, but we live in hope that she will recover before long and be her own true self. In all classes of society there is always someone who believes that their presence, advice, and management is necessary for the advancement of the human race, or that affairs could not go on unless they were there to take part. The High School is no exception to this. We have a few who wonder how things move on so smoothly if they ' are absent a short time. It makes no difference whether the rest are getting up an entertainment, electing some officer’s, or merely attending the regular classes, they truly believe that things move along much more smoothly when they are there to oversee it all. For- tunately we have a very few of this kind, and little by little these learn that they are not so essential. But the best of them all is the all round girl, the one who is a friend to everyone. She is the girl who usually has her lesson, and will help a fellow sufferer if he needs help; she can laugh when anything funny happens but is not afflicted with the giggles continually: she always does her share wherever she is though sometimes others impose upon her good nature. In fact she is the kind of a girl we all like, and enjoy being with. There are many others among us; these are but a few of the kinds, but taken all together we have a very fine assortment.

IIE value to be derived from the study of Shortland is, perhaps, less understood and less appreciated than that of any other subject included in the II. S. course. In the past, two lines of study have been pursued, one for cul- ture, the other for vocation ; today educators are seeking those sub- jects which are practical and at the same time educative. Aristotle forced himself to look for hours in succession, at a peg driven in the floor, in order to cultivate the powers of concentration ; but in this practical age it behooves us to concentrate on something which will more effectually prepare us for the battles of life. Shorthand is practical. Success comes to the one who can do some one thing well ; not to the one who knows a little of everything and nothing thoroughly. The young person who has mastered phonography has not the means of earning a livelihood, only; he holds the entrance key to the entire world of vocations and professions. “ The great commercial interest of the country ” says the School Board Journal, “ is at this time suffering materially from the lack of dependable office assistants, and in view of the opportunities that are offered through these openings, students in our schools should consider this matter very carefully; particularly the young men, as they will soon be called upon to take the burdens of those now in charge of the different bus- inesses of the country wffiich will doubtless continue to increase as time passes. ’ ’ Shorthand is more than practical. It is educative. It does not follow that a student who takes up this line of work must of necessity become a stenog- rapher any more than because he studies mathematices must he become a math- ematician; or Physics, a physicist; or the languages, a linguist. In the acquir- ing of his art the stenographer has developed an unusual alertness of mind ; a greater power of application, memory, concentration and accuracy; he has also improved his orthography, orthoepy and composition. These, with many minor benefits, are in themselves sufficient to repay him for time and energy expended. The V. H. S. Phonography Department is the youngest in the school. It was established in the autumn of 1903, during the exile of the II. S. in the Armory. In the new building special quarters were provided for it, but its work is becoming daily more popular and the department has now outgrown its equipment. During the past year a wave of room decorating passed over the school. The other departments were beautifying their recitation rooms and in order to keep pace with the others the Stenographers joined the movement. On HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 22 Feb. 1, 1906, Miss Mable Snoke, of South Bend, gave a Musicale for the benefit of the department. At the close of the program refreshments were served by the young ladies of the class. This entertainment was one of the most enjoy- able events of the year. It was also a financial success, and a few weeks later the results were seen in the changed appearance of the typewriting room. A green mat covered the bare floor; the windows were decorated with curtains to prevent the eyes of the stenographer from wandering to the street below; and artistic pictures covered the uninspiring walls. Thus the Phonography department stands, after three years growth. It is located in the parlor of the H. S. and it stands for “ Progress ” all the time. This year the first pupils to complete the two years course leave the High School. The members of this class rank with the best students in the class of ’06, one of them having the greatest number of credits, — thirty-six. They also stand high among the orators and debators of the school, and were repre- sented on the athletic field. The members of this class are Leon Harrington, Harry Steppel, Ray Marine, Mable Smith, Ray Lawrence, Harry Doege, Pearl Thatcher and Eugene Eaton. Dutch Doings of the Class of 1 906.

HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 25 A Snapshot. T wasn’t really anybody’s fault but — it .just happened, as acci- dents will in the best regulated High Schools. It was a warm September night, three weeks after the v opening of the .Marsden High School and the coming of the nevv Professor, .Mr. Haywood. As might be expected the latter event caused much excitement and many comments among the students for, (horror of horrors!) the new man was to teach Science! The Seniors, despite the traditional adjective, were fourteen as jolly boys and girls as ever entered upon the mysteries of “ Physics.” They had watched with amazement the unusual actions of the new professor and after they had watched him read the barometer as “ half past six.” and heard him say that mercury was “ used for making electric batteries,” they came to the awful con- clusion that he was — “ absent minded! ” Until this same warm September night before mentioned each one of the fourteen was waiting with suppressed eagerness for a chance to play some prank on Mr. Haywood for they knew the opportunity would surely come, and now it had, although it was merely an accident. • Eight of the Seniors were sitting on the front steps of Margaret Graham’s house discussing the next day’s Vergil lesson and incidentally planning a hay- rack party and lamenting the fact that there had b een no excitement in Marsden for almost a week, when suddenly George Allison said, 11 Say, if you people want excitement, lets go over and break into the school. I want my kodak anyhow and I left it in my desk.” Pshaw, drawled Chester Dixon, ‘‘Where’s any excitement in that? We’ve done that stunt until even the girls are positive proof against the lovely ‘ cold shivers that just run up and down my back.’ ” 11 Then beside, added Tom Parker, “ Mr. Arnold had new locks put on all the windows just yesterday.” “ But the coal cellar door never has had a lock on it and I know we can get in there — come on. The girls are game, I know — anyhow Joker is.” Joker, whose class-room-Sunday-School name was Florence Moreland, was the leader among the girls and no one who saw her wondered at it. Her face was a perplexing mystery of fun and seriousness all the time. Bright, sympa- thetic and pretty, she had won respect and love from all who knew her and unconsciously drew with her a train of followers into all she did. The boys never thought of playing a joke, planning a party or starting a new study without Joker’s advice. So it was only natural that all started for the school when Joker did. 26 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. It was only a short distance and it wasn’t five minutes till they reached their destination. “ Come on boys, some of you to help the girls in. We’ll have to get in here first,” said George in a stage whisper, after he had succeeded in opening the small door. “ Well, you’d better let Tom get in first, for we’ll probably have to put him through by main force.” Tom’s superfluous avoirdupois was a standing joke in the crowd. With much pushing, scrambling and laughing they reached the Assembly Room. All but Joker, Tom, Chester and George stayed out in the hall to keep guard. George groped his way to his seat and got the kodak, when all at once, Joker said in a low voice, “ Boys, there’s some one on the platform! ” All three of the boys paused abruptly to listen for the sound of an intruder for they knew that all of the crowd who had come in with them were at the opposite end of the building. The boys were plainly frightened, but Joker remained calm. “ Give me a match, Chester, I’m going to see who it is.” “ We’d better get out of here without waiting to see who it is,” replied Chester, preparing to make a hasty retreat. “ Fudge ! What for? Whoever he is he can’t be dangerous for he’s fool- ing around the reading table, so I’m not afraid. Where’s that match? ” Gently she stole up to the foot of the platform and listened a minute. The boys followed. “ Listen boys,” she whispered, “ He’s mumbling something.” All stood holding their breath. Joker gently struck the match and a sight greeted their eyes that they always remembered. There, in bath robe and silk hat, one felt slipper and patent oxford and a tuxedo coat, stood — Professor Haywood ! Evidently he was somnambulating, for under his arm he carried an umbrella and in his hands was the large Bible used in chapel exercises. It was almost too much for the gravity of the four. Chester rushed out to tell the other people, who were waiting in the hall. “ Mercy! What if he wakes up? ” said Margaret. “ We would be in for it then sure enough.” “ Well, he won’t. Don’t you worry, but come on and see the fun,” advised Grace Goodwin. When all had gathered to watch the movements of the unconscious actor, Joker, smothering the laugh that seemed determined to come, said, “ Say people, I’m going to take a flashlight of him. Give me your kodak, quick, George ! ” Joker never waited long after making up her mind. Deftly fixing the machine, she snapped the professor just as he was coming toward the front of HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 27 the platform, the Bible open in his hands and the silk hat cocked on the back of his head. “ I should like to ask,” said the pompous principal the next morning when chapel exercises were over, “ if anyone knows anything of the whereabouts of the High School Bible.” Eight heads bent over their books very earnestly and eight people were laughing as only High School pupils can laugh. There was no answer to the inquiry. “ Well,” the principal went on, “ I shall investigate the matter.” The High School bulletin board was extremely attractive that afternoon and every observer came away shaking with laughter at a most peculiar kodak picture posted there. Finally the principal discovered the cause of the general merriment and immediately swooped down upon the offending article. After one hasty look he retired to the hall, whether to give way to laughter or vent his wrath upon the empty air it was never known. JANE DALRYMPLE. Third Annual Preliminary Oratorical Contest. The preliminary oratorical contest held March 30th was an occasion heartily enjoyed by all the pupils and friends of the young people who par- ticipated. The honor of appearing in the Porter County Oratorical and the prize of five dollars were awarded Miss Jane Dalrymple of the Class of ’06, Mr. Ray Marine ranking below her but one point. In the good old phrase of graduation days, this was the best ora- torical the High School has held. The closeness of the fight has been indi- cated in the marks of the two winners; and anyone of the other four con- testants was capable likewise of winning laurels for Valparaiso. Some excellent music varied the program. Miss Mary Turner and Mr. Neil Arvin of the High School, furnished two splended piano solos. Miss Martha Sauerberg, Mr. Roy Bartholomew and Miss Lulu Grace Miller also contributed much to the evening’s entertainment by their singing.

The play opens with old Mr. and Mrs. Hardcastle, their daughter, Kate, their neice, Constance Neville, and Tony Lumpkins, Mr. Hardcastle’s stepson, in their country home. Mrs. Hardcastle tries to marry Tony, her wild, reckless son, to Constance, her neice, altho’ both young people object to the match. Mr. Hardcastle desires to marry his daughter, Kate, to Charles Marlowe, the sou of his old friend. Sir Charles Marlowe. Young Marlowe, with his friend. Hastings, starts for the Hardcastle home. They lose their way, stop at the inn of the Three Pigeons to inquire, and Tony, as the Three Pigeons is crowded, makes them think that they are far from their destination, and sends them to his father’s house as to another inn. Arriving there, they naturally mistake Old Hardcastle for an Inn-Keeper. Hastings meets his swetheart. Miss Neville, who explains Tony’s joke, but they decide not to disconcert Marlowe, who is very bashful, by telling him. Young Marlowe, among gentlewomen, is bashful and reserved, but with maids, and those beneath him, quite the reverse. When he is introduced to Miss Hardcastle he does not once look “ in her face,” so when she appears later, “ dressed in simple house-wife’s garb,” he mistakes her for the bar-maid, and reveals his true self. Kate, thus discovering his two sided nature, deter- mines to stoop to conquer, and as a servent girl to win his heart. arious complications arise from this double role, but all is finally explained and the play closes with the betrothal of young Marlowe and Kate Hardcastle. HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 31 Society Department. JANE DALRYMPLE, ASSISTANT EDITOR. H F there’s one thing above another that the Valparaiso High School is noted for, it is its social life. Why, its so absolutely entrancing that the august faculty themselves have been known to say in public that it was their candid opinion that a great many of the lads and lassies who daily wend their way thither, come just to be in the whirl, so to speak. Now it must be known that the social spirit here is not like that of other small towns, but is, like the class which graduates this year, intensely, extra- ordinarily original. Class parties, so common with most High Schools, are here a rarity — only something original will suffice, so the fertile brains of the youth of the V. II. S. have decided that “ it is not good for man to be alone ” (even with his books) from nine to four o’clock on five days in the week. To remedy this there has sprung up a most wonderful art of correspondence, vulgarly termed by the august faculty as note-writing ! Think of it, most honored readers, to call those worthy productions, laboriously produced, notes ' . Why, “Brakeman’s Complete Letter Writer, containing all kinds of Friendship Letters, Business Letters, Newsy Letters, Nosey Letters, Anonymous Letters. Social Letters, Love Letters, Short Letters and Long Letters,” sold at McConahy’s for fifty cents, is an unnecessary document here. Some unobserv- ing creature has declared that letter-writing as an art is declining, but he will soon discern his mistake when a few more of the V. H. S. scholars are out in the busy world. Here the art is revived with ever-increasing interest. But there are also other forms of social amusement among these studious students. Clubs, hard, soft, oak, pine, maple and beech, of both male and female varieties are here in existence. We have nearly all the letters of the alphabet represented in the titles, such as K. K. K., 0. M. S.. R. D. 0., W. A. B.. and even the teachers have organized in the T. S. C. Oh yes, the Valparaiso High School is very fond of social life and, as far as we know, has been ever since the reign of Professor Banta, when the boys were so anxious to interview their beloved instructor that they called him down three flights of stairs to see a (brick) bat in the daytime. The students have so closely followed the Scriptural command, “ Love One Another.” that love affairs have become the bane of the preceptresses’ lives. Even the girls have been known to become so extremely fond of one another that they had to write every ten minutes to report the latest results of the “ case.” The bulletins run something like this, “ How are you, Honey? Cot a note from Jim just now and say, Glenn winked at me twice. Yours, Mickey. ” The spirit of mischief and merry-making will live, for it cannot help it, in the V. II. S. ; and we truly think, that way down in their inmost hearts, the ■“ guiding hands ” do not expect “ total abstinence.” 32 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. A simple child That knows but aught of books, And feels but joy in all of life— How might she be a cook? I met a little High School girl, Just eight years old she said; Her hair was thick and scorned a curl, Tho beauteous crowned her head. She had a buoyant festive air, And daintily was clad: Her eyes were fair, ah very fair, — Her beauty made me glad. “Chums or classmates, little maid, How many may you be ' ?’’ “How many? Eight, in all” she said, And laughing, glanced at me. “And who are they? I pray you tell’ She answered, “Eight are we, And all of us at Valpo dwell, — The Bridget girls, you see.” “Four of us are graduates, Grace, Verna, Jane and “Pat.” Two more are seeking for life mates, Who? Well I can’t tell that.” “Two more remain, now where are they?’ ’ I asked with interest great, “They study hard day after day, And soon they ' ll graduate.” “You run about, my little maid, Your eyes with fun are bright, Yet what do you in a place so staid As Valpo, day or night?” HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 33 “From our name I’d think you’d know We’re destined to be cooks, Our reputation fast doth grow, Despite our youthful looks. “But we’ve reached Fame in other ways, Each of the eight is known For wit and grace; all people gaze At us, with a jealous moan. “We’ve entertained some clever men And grateful ones a score, Who praise the fare time and again, And longing, wait for more. “We’ve done all that a normal girl Desires in one short life, From giving balls for the social whirl, To camping, without strife.” “But if four of you are graduates And two more soon will be, And two are hunting for life-mates, You’ll be parted soon, I see.” “Ah no, each goes her separate way And each will seek her Fate But we’ll be Bridget girls for aye We always will be eight.” J. D. THE R. D. 0. HERE is a time in the lives of all people (and especially women) when they feel that it is their ascribed duty to organize and belong to about six different clubs. This time came suddenly upon a dozen restless Freshies a year ago and these progressive souls assumed the mysterious title of R. D. 0. There has been much surmising as to what those letters mean until finally, since the lassies absolutely refuse to tell what happens at the meetings, some “ very rude ” people have called it the “ Rag Doll Order.” The beauty of this society is the awful HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 35 mystery attending it and all that is known to the world is that the motto “ Live Forever ” has been chosen by the members. We suppose that means “ provid- ing we are not old maids ” tho’ such a fate could scarcely come to such a fair and winsome lot. They are the kind of girls that bubble over with mirth from morning till night. Do you know them? Fiuette Bartholmew, Louise Black, Lillian Burns, Alice Cornell, Isa Trough.

ACE upon a time, a very long time ago, so the legend runs, there were twelve very precocious youths who felt called upon to make themselves separate and distinguished from the throng of common people. Now these same youths were of ingenious minds and cunning in all they undertook so they, realizing their superior abilities, forthwith banded themselves together in what might be termed a secret society, were not that appellation so generally abused. So as members of that band they faced the world. “ An 0. M. S. am I. ready to do and dare, And like the knightes of olde, fight for ye ladies fair ! ” Now it happened this is what each O. M. S. said to himself as he came before a sea of faces, and straighway he was strengthened and ready to renew the battle of life with new vigor. As might be easily inferred from the motto, these knights were extremely fond of ladies and wished to gladden their hearts and seek favor in their sight by giving them unbounded pleasure. Therefore, may pleasant entertainments, jousts and tournaments were planned, whereupon the ladies were greatly pleased and clapped their hands in glee. And it happened after many years that this band became very famous and furnished the world with a cartoonist who signs his famous productions as Sir James Harcutcheon; a great musician whose two-step, “ Nick and Alice,” is played by all great masters, Sir Neilbling Arvendelssohn ; an orator who shakes the world with his thundering elorpience, Field Raymosthenes Marcicero; an electrician who spans the globe in a single instant with his inventive genius, Sir DeEdison Evanbell ; an actor who portrays with indescribable fervor the melancholy rolls of Shakespeare, Sir Girving Eatgoodwin: an architect whose pen is as if enchanted, Sir Jibson Earlhutt; a professor, the monarch of all he HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 36 surveys, Sir Cleveland Staljordon; an athlete, who has been decorated by all the crowned heads of Indiana, Sir Bihercules Smithsimmons ; a tight rope walker whose balance is amazing, Sir Leon Harbarnum; and an official chaperone who is conspicious by his absence, Sir Hiram Milgettys. Now this is all who have attained the heights of fame, but still there are two more who, in their budding infancy, gave promise of great things. One, it is declared, will be a famous Chinese boxer, the other a ballet dancer. Now is the tale finished, and unfolded to the world is the famousness of ye 0. M. S. JANE DALRYMPLE. THE W. A. B. N the early part of last summer ten girls of the V. 11. S. decided that their mothers had too much to do, and consequently they organized a cooking club. After much discussion they decided to call themselves the White Apron Brigade and to meet every two weeks on Saturday evening. Although at the first meeting there were seven kinds of dessert and no bread, the girls now flatter themselves that they can get up a good meal. The members are Vera Sieb, Alice Cornell, Corrinne Blount, Dorothy Letherman, Helen Miller, Mae Mavity, Isa Trough, Gertrude Trough, Margaret Smith, and Dorothy Arvin. Ten V. H. S. girls had a club, We call it “W. A. B.”, And everything the girls did cook Was eaten up by “we”. Some things were good and some were bad, And some were poorly made; And if we ever ate too much, The penalty we paid. We always wear our little caps, And aprons clean and white: And when we all sit down to sup, Our hearts are very light. We still do meet each other week To eat and drink together; And if none of us lazy grow, We’ll all be cooks forever.” — C. B. and D. A. HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 37 Alumni Department. CLARA CROSBY, ASSISTANT EDITOR. URING no time of its existence has the Alumni Association accomplished so much as in the past year. Letters have been sent out requesting the names, addresses and occu- pations of all members. Some very interesting letters have been received which indicate that the majority of the boys and many of the girls are filling positions of trust and honor, the larger number of both boys and girls have married. The records show three hundred thirty-five members, one hundred nine boys and two hundred twenty-six girls. Fifty-three of this number have enjoyed or are pursuing college courses away from Valparaiso and many more have taken advantage of the Valparaiso University to finish their studies. There is a wide range of occupations, some are bankers, reporters and physicians, but the majority are holding positions either as electricians, teachers, lawyers or farmers. Whatever his calling, each one is doing good work and making splendid records in the world. It is an interesting fact to the class of ’06 that the mothers of four of their number were graduates of the old V. II. S., Mrs. Anna Skinner-Kellogg, Mrs. Maud Skinner-Evans. Mrs. Jessie Hawkins-Arvin and Mrs. Alice Letherman-Dalrymple. The following are a few of the many interesting letters written by the graduates for the Annual of ’06 : McClure’s Magazine, 44-60 East Twenty-Third Street, New York. February 3, 1006. Dear Sir: — You wanted an article on the “High School of 1872. ' In 1872 the •companions I most cared for were boys and girls of from twelve to fourteen years old. I was back there not long ago and these boys and girls had married and had children who were much older than they were at that time. I was surprised to find Ed Wilson an awfully nice fellow, not a bit rough, because when he was fourteen years old he used to make life arduous for me: but I was not surprised to find Rachel Wilson one of the most charming women, for she was one of the dearest fourteen-year-old girls that ever lived. In “ The High School of 1872” there was one whose memory is still dear in Valparaiso; it was Nettie Kellogg. The Valparaiso High School to me was par- ticularly pleasant when I remember the kindly, splendid and very fine face of Professor Banta. I remember Professor Metfetch’s extremely steel blue eyes and the stern man- ner by which he successfully concealed a most kindly heart until you got to know him. I don’t suppose that there ever since that time have been such interesting boys and girls as there were in ’72. When I was in Valparaiso last December I was grieved to see a different kind of building entirely. The old High School building suited me perfectly. I suppose the new building is better in every way and I suppose the boys and girls of 4906 will think its the real thing. The old boys and girls love the old building. Very sincerely yours, S. S. McClure. 38 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. University of Michigan, Department of Law. Ann Arbor, Mich., February 2, 1906. Editor of the Annual : — Your request for a letter for publication in the 1906 Annual brings to mind distinct memories of the spring of Nineteen Hundred and the Graduating class of that year. The time from then until now has been so short that I am sure we of the “century class” can thoroughly appreciate what these senior days mean to you of the Class of 1906. The time since 1900 has been short, indeed, and yet during these few years many changes have taken place in our school— changes which are gratifying to its Alumni. First among them is the new building, which has taken the place of the Central Build- ing of other days, and which furnishes improved facilities for study and recreation. In this latter respect, especially, you of the Class of 1906 and of the Classes which follow may consider yourselves fortunate. Had you attended High School eight or ten years ago, when a request for a gymnasium and recreation room was invariably answered with an offer of free and easy access to a buck-saw and a cord of wood in the back yard of some generous member of the school board, you, perhaps, might appreciate even more than you do your present advantages. To be sure, changes of this sort are only in keeping with the educational spirit of the times when physical and mental train- ing go hand in hand, and stooped shoulders and a hollow chest are no longer con- sidered the mark of a student. But, I say, be thankful that it is so: all, even now, are not so fortunate. There are other changes which are as much improvements as those already men- tioned. Not the least of these is a more systematized course of study, the introduction of new subjects and the adoption of the unit credit system. These are all steps in the right direction and are making our High School one of which we may justly be proud. In praising the school the most important part thereof, the faculty and teachers, should not be omitted, and, indeed, they should receive much praise, for to them is due in a great measure this progress and improvement of the last few years. It is true that while one is in school and closely associated with his teachers he appreciates their kindness and assistance, but it is only in after years that he really begins to appreciate their teaching ability. And, from a short experience, I venture to say that when you the seniors of 1906, have gone out of the high school, have compared your present teachers and their methods with those of others in the profession, and have had an op- portunity to put to the test what they have taught you, you will find yourselves ready to say that our faculty is in every way a competent one and that in this respect more than in any other our school is in advance of other schools of the same grade. You will find yourselves deeply indebted to them for their careful instruction and unstinted de- votion to your best interests while you were in school. And now lest this letter grow too long, I will close by wishing the seniors of 1906 a very happy time during the few remaining days of their High school life. Enjoy them well; they are among the best you will ever see. I am, A loyal alumnus, Gordon Stoner. The younger and more up-to-date students of the V. H. S. have adopted a most commendable plan for keeping in touch with all the members of the V. H. S. A. A. We congratulate them upon their progressive ideas of affording us all a pleasure we will forever appreciate. Twenty-two years have elapsed since we, as a class responded to roll call at the old school building. But today as our names are called Harvey, Girdon, Martha, Maud, Belle, Jen, Mamie, Helen, each one can answer bravely: “Here am I.” Fourteen years after graduation at the home of one of our members in Valparaiso our last class reunion took place; all but one member being present. Mrs. Grace Hath- HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 39 bon Cornell who gave the farewell address to our class and our much loved teacher Miss Bartholomew (now Mrs. Listenberger) besides the husbands, wives and children of our members joined in the merry making. As a class we are justly proud of it: none are rich, nor yet poor: no member has become distinguished or notably prominent, yet each one has and deserves the respect and love of every honorable citizen whom we may have met. In the eternal life we may make new friends, but we doubt if those perfect and glorified ones can ever be so near and dear to us as those more human souls that we have known when they, like ourselves, were but struggling, aspiring, suffering mortals — those who have quarreled with us and kissed us again, who have loved us with tender- ness and who have been faithful to us even unto death. Meetings and partings, handclasps and farewells, loving nearness and griev- ing tears — these are the lot of friendship on earth. But after all the lasting love and respect of the friends of our youth is about the sweetest and best reward earth holds for any one. Loyally yours, Mrs. M. M. Mudge. It is not often that I grow proud or feel my importance but when I think that I am a V. H. S. Alumina and took the whole school course from soup to nuts, my head swells like a baloon on circus day. I remember that tne menu was good — all good — even to the unpractical “cube root” and the puzzling “to, too, twos.” The use of the personal pronoun may sound egotistical but most inexperienced writers become affectated when they take their pen in hand. I have found that literature in the home is not so important an industry as bread making. In fact I have made more loaves of bread than books. And some of the bread was “middlin fair.” We were told that our school work was to fit us for after life, so that we would be prepared for any emergency — even matrimony. But we have blundered some along the path: mostly because it wasn’t quite clear to us just what our “sphere” was— or rather our hemi-sphere. In our anxiety to prove that a whole half was ours, we forgot that the other half was not, and to tell the truth, we don’t want it. We used to have a paper in the High School that had for a motto “Hew to the line, let the chips fall where they may.’’ The advice is just as good in life as to head a news- paper. But our delight was not so much in the hewing as it was to watch the chips hit some one when they fell. Its worth a great deal to a man to speak the truth, besides he has the satisfaction of knowing that he has announced what other people think and dare’nt say. Yet there are a great many truths whose telling is superfluous, and even truth is sometines misleading. Prof. Banta hurried down the steps one April morning to see a bat which the boys said was there, and a nice large brick bat met his expectant eyes. The man who is chopping true to his own line has about all he can do without look- ing to see whether his neighbor is hewing straight or not. ‘‘What a mighty reformation we would witness through the land If the masses and the classes could be made to understand That he wins at least one sinner from dishonesty and pelf Who will let alone his neighbor and just practice on himself.” A Pioneer Alumna, Mrs. Emma Wilson McKeehan. HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. 40 Neath the shadow of the Wasatch In this far off western West, With the pink and golden sunset, Tingeing spire and snowy crest, Long I sit and let the mem’ry Of my childhood flood me o’er, Back again in dear old Valpo I am now a child once more. Ah the pictures how they’re crowding! All their tales of frolic bring, Sailing boats on Crosby’s pond and Building wigwams by the spring. Then the skating on old “Lookout”, Coasting down McNay’s steep hill, Clear the track! The cutter’s coming, Fifteen passengers and “Bill”! Now my school days come before me, In the old south room I see All the old familiar faces, Faces fixed in memory. Listen! I can hear the choir, Lou and Laurie leading all, “Hearts and home sweet words of pleasure Music breathing as ye fall”. Yonder group of girls are planning Something, sure on mischief bent. One is saying, “Mate must do it, She can get Miss K’s consent”. Days of mystery now do follow, Faithful watchers keep the door, From within come peals of laughter, Then a thump upon the floor. “The Great Health Lift” has its draw- backs, Hair pins scattered on the floor, Limping girls and pinned up dresses, Bumps and bruises, sprains galore. But the boys are wildly curious At the “mystic cabinet”, And for weeks we have them guessing, Think perhaps they are guessing yet. Now the last year dawned upon us We the class of ’79. Only three are left to battle In that once illustrious line. Some, more energetic, left us, Joined the class of ’78, While “Our Boy” so long relied on. Basely left us to our fate. School days over now the changes Come before my tear dimmed eye, There’s a star against her name Who gave our Valedictory. Noble girl! Through fiery trial In which weak hearts ever fail, Character its strength asserted, Made her life a pure sweet tale. Genie, “Only thou and I are Left of all that circle now”. “Wife” and “Mother” tell for us of Joys full mixed with cares I trow. Days of childhood far behind us, Slowly youth her banner furls, Yet with youth renewed again we’ll Live among our boys and girls. Twilight hovers while I ponder O’er what yet may be in store, Blending all with past and present, Happy present, sacred yore! Twilight deepens, purple shadows Now enfold the mountains’ crest, Memories fade, and all is present— Life’s so full of work and zest. —Susie M. Sims. “Bill” is Will Newland; “Mate” is Mary Cruthers; “Miss K.” was Nettie Kellogg: “Lou” was Lou DeMotte; “Laurie” was Laurie Letherman; “The Valedictorian” was Cashie Able; “Our Boy” is W. H.

That Association had pur- chased and installed in the “ gym ” all apparatus necessary to play the game and Adelbert Burns, ’08, had been elected referee. The Juniors were the first to get together, and early in year sent out a challenge for any five in the school to meet them in a struggle for the High School championship. The Eurekas first responded, and, with great pluck, tried to win the coveted place, but twice the superior Junior team defeated them, each time decisively. The Seniors next tried to defeat their rivals, but this ended in a dismal failure and the Juniors were left undisputed the school championship. But the Seniors did not give up at this defeat, they battled bravely on, but defeat always awaited them until at last, when they met the Metropolitans, victory came to their aid. Having won a game, the Seniors retired and never after came together again as a team. Even before this game, the Eurekas had ceased to exist; defeated in the race for the coveted honors, though victorious over the Seniors, they gave up the struggle. But, in January, they again came together only to be defeated by the Metropolitans. So after something of a month’s struggle, the Seniors left the field to their victors with a victory in their last game. The Eurekas ended their history for this season in defeat, but the Juniors remained intact throughout the season. Hardly were the Juniors left the monoply of the basket ball field, than they no longer called themselves Juniors, but “ the ” team of the V. II. S. and they carried the red and white through a victorious season. Having conquered everything at home, they sought for other worlds to conquer and so they twice met and twice easily defeated the University of Valparaiso five. Low grades prevented them from entering the lists again until December 22. On that night Hammond High School, with its victorious and experienced five, who had the previous year won the championship of Northern Indiana, pitted its team against ours, a team just beginning its career. The first half was as splendid a game as has been played during the season by our men. and it resulted in a score of 8 to 6 in Hammond’s favor. But early in the second half, Wilson, of our team was injured and obliged to leave the field, rattling the team ; but they continued to hotly dispute every inch of ground and, seeing they would be defeated, fought like tigers to the finish. Although the score showed little in their favor, yet everyone who had seen the game was sure that another game with the same team on the same ground would residt in a victory for us and everyone was proud of the V. II. S. team. Next came Plymouth, but that team went home defeated. Then Hobart came, looking for experience as the V. II. S. track team had gone to Hobart the year before, and they, too, went home, not 46 HIGH SCHOOL ANNUAL. with flying colors, medals and yells as on May 20, 1905, but wishing they had never seen Valpo, having gotten experience. To close the season the team went to Hammond and once more met their conquerors on foreign soil in the first game they played away from home. Here they kept up their reputation, but the strange grounds and the very best team in Northern Indiana against them, did not make the resulting score look favorable to them. These two defeats, only, mar their year’s history. But they always played clean, honest games from beginning to end and in these two games did not allow their victors to leave the field victorious without a hard struggle for their honors. Of the three teams organized in the school they were the first in the field and the last to leave it. They played as one team from the beginning of the season to the end. They will return n ext year and they are determined to do better and win greater honors. The class of ’06, not only wishes them the best success in their next year’s campaign, but also congratulates them on what they have done in the first year of basket ball. They have a record of which any team might be proud and we are certain that next year has far greater glories awaiting them. We acknowledge that our class team could not have done what they have, even though our team had been successful in getting the school championship. Victory has been theirs and victory will be theirs in coming seasons. The schedule of all important games played during the season are: Date. Teams. Score. V. H. S.

AST fall forty of the girls of the Valparaiso High School called a L meeting and organized what was known as the Girls’ Athletic Association. A constitution and by-laws were drawn up and each of the girls paid a membership fee of fifty cents. At the art exhibit given by the History Department the girls had a small cafetiere and made nearly $16.27 ; making, together with admission fees, a sum of $40.27 in the treasury. A meeting was called, at which they decided to use this money for fitting up their gynasium. At a later meeting, however, the majority of the girls thought they would prefer physical culture lessons to basket ball and it was accordingly arranged to take lessons Tuesdays and Fridays of each week from Mrs. Ewing, of Chicago. There was great enthusiasm during the first few lessons, but it gradually decreased, and at the last, there were so few who cared for it, that it was decided to discontinue the lessons. The gymnasium is still without a fixture. Other high schools have girls’ athletic associations, girls’ basket ball teams and they challenge neighboring High Schools. Why is it that Valparaiso High School, one of the best in the state of Indiana, has none of these ? Is it the lack of enthusiasm, funds, good management, or what ? Let us hope that in the com- ing year the girls’ gymnasium may be fitted up and that an instructor may be provided in this most important department so that the girls may have the physical training they need without danger of too violent exercise.
