It nerves ns on to try again when failure makes us blue The dimples of encouragement are good enough for me and you. It aids us in our troubles, it makes us joyous too, It brings a joy, a gladness, for everyone and you. So smile away, some little rays of golden sunshine sent Is worth a million dollars, but it doesn’t cost a cent. Ethei. Gustafson. Life means more than just the living. As we sow we’ll surely reap; And the friends we make through kindness Are the ones we re going to keep.

Xcw Year’s Eve. just about the tinu the old year was to draw his last feeble breath and make his inevitable exit into the Past. I was gazing after a crowd of grotesquely dressed revelers noisily engaged in speeding his departure, and tailed to see the bus for which I was waiting until it was ready to leave. Together with a jolly, white-haired old gentleman who had been standing by me, 1 started frantically to sprint for it when something white and silky whipped across my face, and I stepped directly upon a bit of icy pavement I had expected to jump over. I struck the ground with terrific force. I have a dim recollection of a motor ride, the throb of the engine keeping time with dreadful thrusts of a knife with which someone seemed to be piercing me. 1 remember a sweet, sickish odor, and then I opened my eyes. 1'he jolly old gentleman and a younger one with a baby in his arms bending over me, and to my utter amazement, from out the folds of the old man’s fur coat there tumbled the longest, whitest beard imaginable. To my horror and embarrassment I gave way to helpless, hysterical laughter. I started to apologize but he seemed not to hear. “The wind blew my beard across your face.” lie said, “and you slipped and fell. I’m old bather Time and I've brought the baby. New Year, there in Future’s arms, to Chicago. And now what would you like, a glimpse into the future, or------------” “Oh. yes, please,’’ I interrupted, "do, if possible let me look ahead to the year 1940 and see what is to become of all my classmates. I have to write the prophecy for the annual and I simply don’t know what to write.’’ “Well, that’s easy.—let me have the mirror marked 1940, Future, from out your grip. Xow this i a magic mirror. All you need do is to speak the name of the one whom you wish to see. and in some manner it will be revealed to you. what that one has become. I’ ut, make baste, for like Cinderella, I must disappear upon the stroke of twelve.” So in rapid succession. I proceeded to speak the names of all the class of 1927 of the V alparaiso High School, and this is what the mirror of 1940 revealed to me: (It 1 glimpsed (iladys Auble painting the Prince of Wales’ picture in a beautiful London studio. (2) I saw Arthur Dali IS name signed in flourishing letters to a cartoon in the Chicago Dailv Tribune. Donald Will and Franklin Limbeck were heatedly debating in the United Pane 75 -.mum, a SSSE T H E V A L E N I A X Slates Senate as t the advisability of having women enforce the Federal and State Laws. 4 Charlotte Crowe, a fiery politician, appeared to he protesting against the Senatorial outbursts of Senators W ill and I ..unibeck. (5) I caught a glimpse of Wayne Allerton and Mary Small, dancing partners. exhibiting their skill before the nobility of Europe. ( ) There was a scene with Mrs. W allace Aylesworth—the latter the former Miss Auretta Rigg—entertaining Miss Adalene Eaton, a well known musician. (7) 1 glimpsed a large social gathering with Mr. and Mrs. Ralph St. Clair, the latter formerly being Miss Anna Mae Stuart, as host and hostess, and was able to pick from among the guests the Misses Margaret Atwell. Marguerite vlesworth. Margaret McN'ay. now Mrs. Stanton. Marguerite Neff. Dorothy Ritz. Verna Sherrick. I'em ice Smith, and Lorraine Vevia, all well known society women. Ami among the men I noticed the Reverend Tracy Swarthout. leader of the New York City Fundamentalists. George London, still courting the charming Miss Ritz. Edmund La Tour and Vernon Mooker. partners in the world’s largest plant for producing athletic goods. George llowscr. I'resident of the New York bachelors "Open All Hours" club and Paul I Hack, now a famous screen star. (X) |olm Ellis was being presented with honors gained by his recent record flight around the world. CM Clarke Ferrell's name appeared as editor of that much read magazine “Life.” (10) Thelma Field appeared as the head of one of the largest dressmaking establishments in the United States. (lit I glimpsed Dorothy Ellis teaching a Physics class in the Chicago Northwestern University.

Fiwice E V A L E X I A N CLASS HIS T () K V Great was the joy in the hearts of these young, when they entered upon unknown fields. Whither they were drifting, whether to their desire, they could not have told. Perhaps better to have permitted honour and goodness creep unconsciously into the hearts and deeds of these Freshmen, as they obediently wound their way throughout the first laborious year in alparaiso High School. Onward to the Sophomore year with more understanding and purpose. Ardently and wisely selected those to manage the tasks of a well-organized class, which embraced with zeal the meaning of duty in the classroom. the spirit of sportsmanship in athletics, as well as respect in social life. Even with more fortitude and desire did they take it upon themselves to make use of more judgment in the selection of officers, choosing as their executive Donald Will, in this, the third year. By the untiring aid of their supervisor. Mr. Pauley, they prepared with the greatest of joy for upperclassmen, a Junior-Senior promenade, which was the great social event in this, their High School career. With equally good spirits they worked hard and successfully on preparations for a gathering and merry feasting on the sea-shore, the second attempt to reveal appreciation to the lofty Seniors. Many serious minds, realizing future efforts, sought consolation and aid from those Seniors graduating. Three years of teaching had imbued them with knowledge, wisdom, self-confidence, and the spirit of service to upperclassmen and loyalty to their school. Each attempt to be like their predecessors brought them one step nearer to their ideal, the last successful attempt in the Junior year being a neatly arranged play given under the direction of Miss Benny. On to the fourth year with work "thus far so nobl advanced ”. Each member of the class, sixty-six in number, in his own willingness, raised the standards of his class by completing his share of work on the customary Senior Vaudeville and Carnival given just after Thanksgiving. As many classes before this one have done, those of '27 with great hope have looked forward to entering its last year in Valparaiso High School recently built. Needless to say, they rejoice in the fact that they are the last class to graduate from “Old Valpo High", to which they proudly can dedicate their Valenian. To promote further progress, peace and good will in conduct, the class of ”27 boasts the responsibility of a constitution for student government. which was accepted by a general assembly and council chosen by the student body. They, as supporters of the “Bounding Brownies" can justly say that the good work in successful games was due to the ever increasing school spirit and the promise it holds for the Green and White. The able manager of this class. Franklin Limbeck, with the assistance of supervisor. Mr. lessee, carried on with increased devotion to their constant followers the work which made this Senior Class what it intends to stand for. Its Glee Club work under supervision of Miss Darby has been highly complimented throughout the year, along with the drama “Come Out of the Kitchen", the one successful Senior play made perfect by the efforts of Mrs. Mavity in coaching. Shall this class of '27 ever forget with what reluctance they faced a new world after four years of eager struggling in a preparatory career ? MARGUF.RITK X EFF.

E N I A N iiiliiliillili:illiiiliilll S T I I) I : X T S’ P I L (i R I M A (i K It was a perfect September morning when Student, “a youth to fortune and to fame unknown ', set forth upon his travels. The sky was beautiful, clear blue, flecked here and there with snow white clouds that appeared to be a" "oft as the down of a tiny bird. And "never did sun more beautifully steep in his first splendor, valley, rock, or hill" as a warm breeze gently stirred the trees and shrubbery round about. In the distance loomed snowcapped mountains, mute testimony of Nature's wonderful handiwork, toward which Student directed his footstep . As he gazed about him. he drew a deep breath of content for “Karth has not anything to show more fair, and dull would he be of soul who could pass by. a sight so touching in it" majesty ; here and there he could see fields of yellow grain swaying and dancing in the breeze, while along the dusty road there grew red and yellow flowers, that seemed to stretch forward and beckon to the youth as he walked along. To any passer-by the lad himself would have proved an interesting picture, for he was a tall, dark-haired young fellow with a frank, open countenance that augured success in any undertaking. Hi" sparkling blue eyes gazed at the world with a cpiestioning but eager look, and his mouth was quick to curve into a merry, mischievous smile disclosing even, white teeth. His sturdy, athletic figure was clothed in home-spun garments, while on his back he carried the equipment needed for the journey, and in his hand he grasped a strong staff called Perseverance. But the youth's thoughts were far from the surrounding scene for he was thinking of the goal off in the mountains that lie had set for himself: to him all appeared perfect, and he allowed no thought of failure to enter his mind. As he neared the first mountain called Mt. Mathematics, the path became steeper and more difficult. On either side the forest became more and more dense. Trailing vines and underbrush reaching across the path ready to ensnare any unwary traveler. The trail finally became so difficult that it was necessary for Student to cut a way through which to pass. Suddenly, the thick woods ended, and the lad found himself near a broad river very foreboding in appearance. This, he found to be the dangerous river of Latin, which had caused so many travelers to turn back. The only means of crossing this river was in a tiny boat, which had been drawn upon the shore, and contained but one oar. With but little hesitation, however. Student climbed into the boat and started across the stream. hen but a short distance from shore, he was seized with fear for the oar wa wrenched from his hands by famous and terrifying V erbal Shark, and in the swirling water he could see monstrous whales of Derivations ready to devour him should he be thrown into the water. But the Spirit of the Current now took pity on the thoroughly frightened boy. and pushed the boat to safety on the desired shore, meanwhile whispering words of encouragement in his ear. Hardly, however, had he reached the shore when he heard a low, grumbling noiselike thunder.•UMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiii:.’ -;. lllMlllinilll!lll!lllilflHKdSga@ T II K V A I, K Nl Glancing around in panic, he suddenly recalled the Staff hv his side, and firmly grasped it in his hands just as a terrible fire-breathing monster rushed upon him. The vision of his goal urged Student to fight with superhuman strength and skill, until finally, with a triumphant shout, he stood victor over the elusive but dangerous Dragon of English. I lardly had the echo of his shout died away when he heard in the distance the sound of care-free, joyous laughter. Hastening toward the spot from whence the sounds came, he arrived at the beautiful Field of Pleasure. In one part of this Field, he could see the jolly members of the Glee Club dancing and singing among the flowers, whine in another section there were boys and girls playing Basket-ball. Base-ball, or Foot-ball. Student was hailed with delight by these happy merry-makers, and persuaded t stay with them if but for a short time. Weary from his recent conquests, and tilled with delight as the prospect of an hour with these delightful companions. Student gladly complied and set about to rest and refresh himself. But when the time came to leave these new friends, he found himself doubting whether it would not be better to stay with these pleasure-lovers than to toil on toward a goal that seemed to retreat as he approached it. Then Common Sense came to his aid. and persuaded him to go on. saying there would be plenty of time for pleasure after his task was completed. So. just as the sun began its slow, tedious descent into its western home. Student arrived at the Marsh of History. He crossed the marsh walking on a very narrow path, neither glancing to the right nor left for he well knew that the Bogs of Dates, whose snaky figures crept across his path, were filled with the ghostly figures of old wars, who frequently '•bricked with such blood-curdling screams as to cause the boy to tremble with fear and finally break into a run. W hen he reached the foot of the mountain at the end of the Marsh, he sank exhausted on the ground bewailing his foolishness in listening to the advice of Common Sense. But soon, noticing how rapidly the sun was sinking and having no desire to complete his journey in the night, be began to wearily climb this second mountain where the way was beset by fiery Corollary Dragons, aides of the Monster Proposition. At the foot of the mountain lay the beautiful, little lake of Chemistry on whose calm surface rested a small, white boat that bore the name. Determination. Stepping into the boat Student started to sail across the lake. When almost across he stopped, and listening. heard the whir and drone of aeroplanes that began dropping deadly Experimental Bombs, with a desire to wreck the brave, little vessel. But. true to its name, the skiff' valiantly carried the lad to safety on the opposite shore. A smiling, white-haired man warmly greeted the lad. and taking him by the hand, led him to his beautiful home a short distance away. Entering a spacious hall, he showed the wondering boy a beautifully carved table upon which lay a marvelous, golden casket. Placing this within the boy’s hands he said. “Herein lies the reward of your many struggles and vicistitudes. You have done well. May you never forget the lessons learned upon the long journey you have just completed.” Upon opening the casket. Student found a golden key with the word. Diploma, engraved on it. the key which was to open for him the gate- way to success. "And now the sun had stretched out all the hills. And now was dropt into the western bay At last he rose, and twitched his mantle blue. To-morrow, to fresh woods, and pastures new.” Eunice FagrT H K V A I, I!

I X I) I A X A A famous old story of the Arabian ight tells of Aladdin and his wonderful lamp, of the genii who turned everything into glittering gold and commonplace surroundings into palaces of delight. The story of Indiana is more wonderful than any tale of fairy or genii. It relates how an almost limitless wilderness was turned into a great and prosperous State—not in a moment’s time by the waving of a wand—but by the patient toil of thousands of brave and sturdy men and women, in less than one hundred years. The pioneers were the genii who swept away the forest, made the farms, built the cities and established civilization. The merit of this story lies in the truth of this magic, and in this it i superior to any fairy tale. There are those yet living who have witnessed much of this wonderful transformation, so it seems a fitting time in this first half of the twentieth century that we should think more of our native state, more fully appreciate and reverence it. while realizing the magical developments it has made since 1800. Indeed Indiana is one of the miracles of the nineteenth century. T H K I. K N I A N There has long been a tendency to depreciate our state. W e have not been a boastful people; we have not exalted our own; but the time has come when the term Hoosier is no longer a term of ridicule, but one in which we may take pride. About one-fourth of the distance across the United States from north to south and near the center from east to west, lies that part of the country known bv the pleasing name of Indiana. Within it' boundaries li - thirty-live thousand nine hundred and ten square miles of land as rich and productive as can he found in any part of America. Innumerable rivers and creeks carry off the waste water which, if allowed to remain on the land, would render it unhcalthful and unlit for cultivation. The surface of the state is a plain. The northern part i quite level with the exception of the sand hills along the shore of Lake Michigan. The center portion is rolling and the streams have deeper valleys. The southern lands are quite hilly and broken and in this section are many caverns which attract innumerable travelers to our state. Indiana is pre-eminently fitted by nature for agriculture, and she ranks high in agricultural products. The soil in the northern part is a rich sandy loam; the southern valleys are very fertile; the hills produce good crops of grain and are well adapted to fruit growing. I'he mineral resources of the state are varied and of great value. Coal abounds and vast oil deposits are found, also, excellent building stone and clay. With fertile soil and practically no waste land, with raw materials and a supply of natural fuel. Indiana furnishes a physical basis for development of civilization surpassed by few. I let ween the cities and villages lie vast agricultural districts. Xo state can boast of liner or richer farms than Indiana. As far as the eye can see stretch meadows, orchards and fields of grain, with here and there a cool shady woodland to add to its beauty of the landscape. Comfortable and prosperous homes are seen on every side; cottage and mansion stand side by side. Everywhere are evidences of thrift and prosperity. Each neighborhood has its school house, and churches lifting their pointed spires direct one’s thoughts beyond the skies. Homes are connected with each other and the public buildings by splendid highways. Hut it was not always thus. There was a time, many years ago, when this broad prosperous land was but a wilderness: a deep. dark, almost impenetrable forest, the home of wild beasts, feathered songsters, slimy reptiles, and tribes of Indians. There were no homes, no schools, no churches, only vast forests unknown to the white man’s tread. The restless streams which drain our beautiful country wound their way through forest glades and knew the dip of the Indiana canoe—their shady isles felt the stealthy tread of wild beasts and wild men. I'or how many ages those deep forests had been undisturbed save by the red men. no one knows; neither is it known whence the Indians came nor another earlier people who are spoken as the Mound Builders. Artificial mounds all over the state discover implements of pottery and highly ornamented stone. It is difficult to date their period, but the Mound Builders belong to a time centuries before our era and preceded the Indiana so long that he has no traditions concerning them.H E V A Is E N I A N (Sjggyy" After the Mound Builders various tribes of the Algonquin Family occupied this region. Their habits were not as fixed nor their civilization as advanced as that of the Indians to the east and west, lienee Indiana became the battle ground of the hostile tribes on either side »f her. The Xorthwest territory bordering the (ireat Bakes, the Mississippi river and the Ohio river, possessing great forests, fertile lands and valuable minerals made a most important addition to the possessions of the United States. Congress proceeded at once to its organization and passed the Ordinance of 1787. the most discussed clause of which was that prohibiting slavery. Its effect upon the future citizens of Indiana cannot be overestimated. After some years of territorial rule from Vincennes, the territorial capital, in 1816. Indiana was formally admitted to the Union. Her first Constitution was formed at Corydon. the second capital, where remain today the first State House and the trunk of the great Constitutional Kim. Tile pioneers were too busy clearing the lands to think of intellectual development. but in 1851. realizing the deplorable fact that one in every seven of her inhabitants was illiterate, new education laws were formulated. Today illiteracy has been reduced to 2.2r r. Indiana is noted for her independence ot thought. The people think for themselves and make their own decisions. Hoosier ideas have found their way into books and Indiana ranks with the highest in political literature. Booth Tarkington’s sincerity, affection and loyalty to Indiana is shown in “A Gentleman from Indiana.” Xo liner portrayal of early lite in this state can be found than in Kdward Kggleston's "Hoosier Schoolmaster. «ene Stratton I'orter’s descriptions of nature have made famous her "I.imberlost." James Whitcomb Riley describes Hoosier life in its own dialect. Xot all famous men of Indiana have been writers. Among the world s educators is the superintendent of iary’s school system. illiam irt; among the sanitary workers are John Ilurty and Harvey Wiley, secretary of the Indiana Board of Health and government chemist. The Supreme office of the United States was held by a Hoosier from 1889 to 1893—Benjamin Harrison was President, hour men trom Indiana have been Vice-Presidents. Indiana is not only a great agricultural state but possesses some ot the most picturesque scenery in the United States. I ravelers come miles to view in awestruck wonder the glories of the Dunes on the shore of Lake Michigan. No written or spoken word can compare with the lirst hand pleasure we Porter County people enjoy in being so near to them. Brown County is known as Indiana’.' Switzerland. I he varied scenery, climate. and people along with the simplicity of life affords the greatest interest. On the hills and bluffs along the Ohio River, known as “The Knobbs” grow manv gigantic trees. Between the hills are deep ravines and gorges, and numerous waterfalls add to the beauty of the locality. At Turkey Run one is impressed bv the wonderful and romantic natural formations of glens, gulches, hills and caves. The lakes in northern Indiana are considered the brightest gems in the corona of the state. Lake Wawasee is the largest in the group but Lake Maxin-kuckee is best known. . One must get into the heart of Indiana to appreciate its real beauty, l o the traveler who sees Indiana from a car window only, the land may seem uninteresting. Railways and interurbans run through the most productive and not the Page 75iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiinniiiiiniin::ii!lljHMtfUllMI Page 77 llefore discussing this subject I wish to give briefly to von the contents of the National Prohibition The proposed Prohibition amendment became the Eighteenth Amendement on January 16. 1919, but by its own terms did not become effective for one year; it has, therefore, been in operation since 12 A. M.. January 17. 1920. The Eighteenth Amendment reads as follows: Section 1. After one year from the ratification of this article the manufacture. sale, or transportation of intoxication liquor within the United States, the importation into or the exportation thereof from the United States and all territory subject to the Jurisdiction thereof for beverage purposes is hereby prohibited. Section 2. The Congress and the several States shall have concurrent power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation. Anyone who reads the first section of the Eighteenth Amendment will notice at once that it. of itself, without supporting legislation, prohibits the acts mentioned. It is. as the Supreme Court says, self-executing, but do not think that this also implies self-enforcing. Much of the United States Constitution is written in the form of giving Congress ‘’power" to legislate in certain fields, such as interstate and foreign commerce, immigration and regulation of the postal service. P ut just as the Thirteenth Amendment forbade slavery so did section one of the Eighteenth Amendment prohibit the sale and manufacture of intoxicants. Now that I have placed before you the provisions of the Law, 1 shall discuss the evils which have arisen since prohibition and the need of more stringent enforcement of the laws by means of which prohibition is to be attained. First, without any further elucidation. I think that we all know the effects of intoxicating liquors upon the human body, that it hardens the arteries and in aggravated cases causes total blindness. Second the liquor traffic is a curse to humanity and an enemy to the modern industrial world. A man in an automobile may be opposed to the Eighteenth Amendment; but he would instantly discharge a drinking chauffeur. A train may be crowded with delegates to the anti-prohibition convention, but they would mob the engineer who would take a drink while responsible for his precious freight. The industrial magnate may talk critically of sumptuary laws, but he will apply them like a despot to the man who watches over the driving power of his expensive machinery. W hen safety is involved we are all drys. Third, in the past few years the standards of education have been nearly doubled. Right here in your own University the course in law has been lengthened from three to five years. Not •'ii-HnutnnmiiiiiiiiiiiiggfrfiT-" ngrargg T I! E V A L E MAN only i this true of the law blit many other courses have been made more extensive:, and what is true of Valparaiso University is equally true of higher institutions all over the land. It can easily be seen that in order to meet this ever increasing standard, the college men of today must have a clear and highly developed mind. Are the people of this nation going to permit the minds of our college men to be undermined by dissipation? I say no because I think that the American people want to see our standard of civilization surpass that of any other nation in the world. This can only be attained by correct habits of life. Mow as to the enforcement of this law. As the automobile tits into the advancement of transportation, so the Eighteenth Amendment tits into the advancement of the morals of civilization. It was the next evil to he abolished by a Christian people. The Eighteenth Amendment was not adopted, as is so often said, in haste or without our deliberation upon the part of the people of the United States. For some fifty years the subject of prohibition had been under discussion throughout the entire country, and at the time of the ratification of the amendment 33 States of the Union had adopted State-wide prohibition. After the amendment was submitted to the States, all but two ratified it. Xo amendment to the constitution has ever been adopted after so prolonged a consideration as was the Eighteenth Amendment. Whatever its merits or its demerits may be. there can be little controversy over the proposition that it was a deliberate act at the time it was written into the constitution of the United States. It was perfectly clear at that time that the people intended to promulgate a national policy and that policy they wrote into their charter of government. At present individuals in several States are engaged in a campaign to find a way by which to evade the dictates of the constitution of the United States, without apparently doing so; to find some way to repeal or nullify its terms and conditions without specifically changing this part of the Constitution or without complete nullification. What these factions are seeking to do is to handle the situation so as to satisfy the country without nullifying the Eighteenth Amendment. The difficulty before them is this. If they allow a percentage of alcohol which does not intoxicate they will satisfy no one. On the other hand if they fix a percentage of alcohol sufficient to intoxicate they will be violating the Constitution. The liquor problem can not he disposed of by amendments which do nothing more than add additional problems. It can not be put to rest by changing percentages if these percentages fail to give intoxicants. The question is not over percentages. It involves deeper and more searching questions, after all changes ire made, if we maintain the provisions of the Constitution, the liquor problem will still be unsettled, undetermined, haunting the halls of Congress, and tormenting public opinion. If we can not enforce prohibition now, think what it would mean if 150,000 aloons selling beer were available for the selling of whiskey. If they sold beer, i large percentage of them would sell whiskey also. They never obeyed the law before prohibition, and they would not obey it again. Since to bring back beer and light wines, as has been proposed, would make conditions of enforcement worse, there is only one course to follow if we are to remedy the evils that com front us. and that is the straight forward, honest course of obeying and enforcing the law. How shall we do this? Pa it- 78 iiniiniiiniinniiiimiiiiinininiuiinuiininiiiiiiiiiiniiuiiiiiiuimiuiiit:m:iiiiiiiHaggggaS r H E Y I. E man @2S£52£S?Z First, there should be a nation-wide educational campaign against the use of alcohol and in favor of law enforcement. Second, the smuggling of liquor from Canada and Kurope should be stopped by the use of patrols and by the assistance of the Navy at sea if necessary. I bird, prohibition enforcement officers should be paid better salaries. Fourth, the appointment of prohibition officers should lx taken out of politics and they should he appointed and retained upon their merits. Prohibition has played a part in the greatest prosperity that any nation lias ever known. Secretary Hoover reports that the standard of living ha risen 19 percent in the L'nited States since the adoption of prohibition. It is so simple a matter that even a child can understand it. the great masses of working men instead of buying pails of beer, buy houses, furniture, and food for their families. Hefore ridiculing the movement and pointing out the defects of prohibition we must take a larger view of it benefits. W e must realize that only six years ago the movement was adopted nationally. During this time the government has done wonders in handling the undertaking. Let us remember that law abiding people are making a sacrifice that will immediately show results if the law i properly enforced. All citizens today are not like our Pilgrim fathers who made the supreme sacrifices to establish this great country. They knew with absolute certainty that they would not live to enjoy all the fruits of their efforts, but they were working for the future of America. W e are enjoying all the benefits of past sacrifices, yet some of us are now very selfishly, in the name of personal liberty, resisting the law made by our own will. I hope that if we are ever to resist any laws in the name of personal liberty that it will lx in a higher cause than the right to buy intoxicating liquors. I wish that we might lift this subject from the level of mere law enforcement to the higher level of free, voluntary, willing support of the law for the sake of tlie common good. Hut until that time let us remember that we can raise the standard of citizenship or allow it to decline. W'e can have exactly the kind of government we want. if. with firm resolve, we exert ourselves to get it. If that statement is not true, then the system of government under which we live is a failure. Let us also remember that we are the proud citizens of a democracy; that we have said to the world that we are men of enough character, self confidence. moral rectitude and courage to govern ourselves. W e have set up our form of government on that basis. W'e are either going to make good our boast that we are capable of self-government or else we are going to fail. On the other hand when a community sees that a certain standard of living is best for the majority, they write it into a law in order that the police and courts may make the few who are unwilling to live as they should olxy the dictates of the majority who are enjoying the blessings of the new standard. This means that the vast majority of the people in a community are willing to observe the law. and that the officers of the community must see to it that the others are forced to obev it. Hring this home to yourselves in the matter of prohibition. It will be a success when you make it a success. You will make it a success when the majority of you reverence this law yourselves, and take enough interest in it to see that police and court officers arc elected who will enforce its provisions. I hat is vour job as citizens, and you should do your pob as conscientiously and as earnestly as those who framed the document under which you have enjoyed a full measure of prosperity.

Indiana. This year V alparaiso High School took three first places ont of a possible five in the District I'ests. The students to represent Valparaiso at Bloomington were: Ruth Boker. Martha Hughes, and Mary Edna Stoner. From these three Mary Edna Stoner took second place in her division. All who go to this meeting are royally entertained during their brief stay by trips through the grounds and over the city, banquets, and receptions. At the banquet which was tendered them, Martha Hughes, one of our representatives, gave a very interesting and credulous speech. The competition of the State this year proved to be the highest in many years and we are proud of the fact that one of our representatives has upheld the standard of the school. ST U I EXT GOVERXM EXT The fall of the year marked the entrance of "Student Government" into Valparaiso High School. It is the purpose of this organization to befit students as loyal citizens of the United States, to centralize activities of the student body, to increase the school spirit, and encourage high standards. The system has three departments, hirst the Legislative divided into Senate and Student Council, only those who have average "M" grades, and who maintain a deportment grade of "G" are eligible. Second the Executive Department—the principal of the high school acts as chief executive. I hirdly the Judicial—composed of a Supreme Court. There are five judges who are honor students. The Superintendent acts as a source of appeal and advice in all cases. T HE JUX IOR PROM The Elk's Temple decorated in a gorgeous color scheme of brown and tan was die scene of the 1927 Junior-Senior From. The thrill of the grand march, the whole evening itself, all this with lights that shone none too brightly-left memories with those who "tripped the light fantastic" at the Junior Prom. A noted orchestra from Gay Mill was secured for the occasion. With the closing strains of the last dance the Junior Prom of 1927 passed into record—one that future classmen may well strive to surpass. J U X I () R - S E X 1 O R P I C X I C With a beautiful setting of spring weather as a background the social program of the upper classmen came to a pleasant close at the Junior-Senior Picnic held at W’ahob Lake. It was a gala day for events. The lake sports were a source of enjoyment to both "roughs" and “queeners". The most pleasing feature, the traditional “spread" of the Juniors went far above the mark. The day was a continuous round of enjoyment, and closed a most successful year.

E N I A N'l S E X 1 O R P L A Y The public entertainments of the year came to a close May 4th when the Senior IMay was given at the Memorial Opera House. The play is always a long looked for event and "Come Out t‘ the Kitchen’’ was by no means a disappointment. Such a snappy and clever performance was a most excellent ending for the year’s activities before the footlights. Each player was splendid in his part and showed the effects of Mrs. Mavity's untiring efforts in directing the play. "C ome Out of the Kitchen" is perhaps the most difficult play ever chosen by the Senior classes but its success in quite transforming the appearance of the Opera I louse stage was an evidence of the high quality of those who made the play what it was.

I’he four young Dangerfields, left at home, find it a financial necessity to rent the old family mansion for six weeks to Mr. Crane, a wealthy Northerner. All arrangements are made through a lawyer so the contracting parties do not meet each other. The contract provides for four white servants in the house. This necessitates the discharge of the old colored faithfuls, and the placing of an order of four white servants. Just before the arrival of Mr. Crane the young Dangerfields get word that this order cannot be filled. The crisis is met. however, by the suggestion of Olivia that the four young people act as servants in their old home. Regardless of protests, this scheme is launched and Crane arrives with hi" guests. Blunder follows blunder until all the servants except the charming Irish maid (Olivia) are discharged and the guests, insulted, leave. The thought of being in the mansion with no one except this Irish maid worried Crane considerably. but she seems little disturbed (knowing that her brothers and sister have concealed themselves in the attic since their discharge). Through a heated argument with Olivia and numerous unguarded statements by her. Crane becomes aware of the game the Dangerfields are playing and «»ti learning their motive cheerfully forgives them.

A V “Love will find a wav” according to the « l I adage, hut in one case at least it should have said “Juniors will lind a way." lor regardless of the many difficulties in the form of postponements and changing of parts, the annual Junior entertainment was a huge success. The program this year was in the form of two plays, given before a full house. April 11. in the Assembly. “Culture”, a clever satire in one act. was a mild attack on those folks who seek culture above all things, only to the detriment of their naturally pleasing personality and manner. “Culture” was portrayed by Mary Clifford as Mrs. Bernard; Marybellc Trahan as Mary, the saucy maid; Roy Crowe as the Irishman; David Parry as Frank Kndicott; 'ferry Pullings as (iiuseppe l.eontine: Ruth Harder as Helen; Lois lliglev and Bonnie Fisher as friends of Helen; and Roy Bundy as ieorge, friend of Kndicott. "The Highway Men” in three acts had a very amusing plot, which kept the audience in an uproar of laughter. This comedy was enacted by Margaret Faling as Mrs. Roberts; Harry Huge as Mr. Roberts; Anita Seivers as Aunt Mary; Herbert Deer as Mr. Bemis; John James as Dr. Lawton; Howard Molt as Willis Campbell; Bud Lowenstiiu as Mr. Bemis. Jr.; Ruth Baker as Mrs. Bemis. Jr.; (irace Salmon as the maid. Both plays were carefully staged through the efforts of Miss Mable Benny. Kacli part was so well chosen that one would be led to believe the play was written for this particular group of players.

They were gradually cut down to a first squad of ten men and a second squad numbering twenty players. ( hily three letter men from the preceding year were left—Lytle. Wood, and Mooker. Despite the lack of adequate gymnasium facilities and veteran material. Coach Frown developed one of the strongest teams in this section of the state. This was the first year of the 'Fig l.Y conference of northern Indiana and Valparaiso managed to finish in sixth place. The only games the Green and W hite lost were to Conference teams, losing six of these while winning seven. The opposition scheduled by the local authorities for the past season was by far the stifVcst ever encountered by a Founding Frownic aggregation. Among the teams appearing on the local court for the first time were Lane Tech and Knglewood of Chicago and Mishawaka. As the season progressed. Valpo became one of the most feared cage teams in northern lloosierdom and won the right to represent the Porter county section at the Fast Chicago regional tourney.T H E V LE X I A N S K A s O X R E C O R I) Valparaiso ...24 Chesterton .. 25 Valparaiso ...70 I .owell .. . 9 Valparaiso ...21 Mich.

Wheeler offered the most strenuous opposition to the Valparaiso squad of" any of the teams entered when the brownies met heeler in the scmi-linals. Crisman played in the final game with Valparaiso. All during the tourney Valpo exhibited a superior brand of basketball and never was in danger of sustaining defeat. They scored 145 points to their opponent’s 40. This is the third consecutive year that alparaiso has won the sectional tournament, all three of these having been held on the home floor. There were nine teams entered in this meet, all of them being from Porter County. For the third successive time V alparaiso after winning their sectional lost out in the first round of the regional tourney. The C.reen and White machine did not display the brand of basketball of which they were capable so were taken down the hraten path of defeat bv Fmerson. the final score being 51-17. Fmerson presented a defence that the locals found impossible to penetrate and to top this off, the Prownies were unable to connect on their long shots. Coach 15rown used the entire squad of ten men but could not stave oft defeat. I .a Porte was beaten by Fmerson in the finals after winning from Kentland 45-27 in the first round.

It all semis like a dream or a story. I can hardly believe that it is over. The time has gone so rapidly that it seems like yesterday that 1 finished the country school.’ These were the words of a boy about eighteen years old as he addressed an elderly gentleman. The boy’s name was Tom O'Reilly. He was about live feet and a half tall and weighed about 150 pounds. His hair was brown with a slight tendency to wave. He had large brown eyes and very coarse eye brows. Whenever you looked at him he was smiling. On this occasion there was seriousness above that inevitable smile. "Yes. Tom. time goes very quickly and you do not realize that the best days of your life are gone until it’s too late.” replied the elderly gentleman. “You say. Tom. that it seems like a story, 1 believe that a story of that type would merest me. Would you mind telling me about it as best you can?” “I’ll tell you. Mr. Davis, but there is no plot to this story.” replied Tom. "While going to grade school I lived in the country. The only games we played were tag and ‘shinny’. We did not have football or basketball. 1 read about and heard at home about the high school’s games. It was my greatest ambition to make the high school basketball teams. "I was fourteen years old when I started high school and 1 was a country lad from my hair cut to my big country shoes. I wore short pants which were kept in place by a pair of suspenders. I wore my suspenders on the outside of my shirt. Over all this I wore a coat, which I removed in warm weather leaving my suspenders in full view of the entire high school. My hair was never where it belonged, not because the hair was unruly but because I never considered my hair worth the time it took me to keep it in place. I never thought about shining my shoes. My appearance was nothing to me then, although my older sister raved about me to Dad a couple of times. That was my first appearance at high school. I had an older brother who had been there ahead of me and because of his reputation 1 received a front seat which has been in my possession for four years. This brother’s reputation helped in more ways than one. When football season opened the captain, a 100 pound guard, asked me to come out for the team. I took this idea with great enthusiasm home to Dad; but here there came a conflict. It was my duty to milk the cow. get in fire wood, and feed the horses and chickens every night and morning. I did not go out for football. At last basketball season came around and I went out for basketball. Here I met the best fellows that I ever will meet. (These fellows all finish with me this year.) My good times started here. I remember one evening when the Freshman were going to play and I had failed that day in my vocabulary tor Latin. The teacher made me stay after school. I finally got out of school and ran all the way to the gym. which was over a mile uphill. Then I did not get to play. After that I always knew my Latin vocabulary m days we played basketball. When the varsity and second teams were picked. I did not get called out. Later in the season two Seniors on the second team quit. 1 got one of their suits. I had this suit for about a week and then one of the first team fellows lost his sweat top. and I suffered. That was all right: but a couple of days later I lost my trunks because one of the first string fellows split his in the seat. I practiced from 5 to 6 P. M. After practice I rode my bicycle home, milked the cow and did the other chores. I never received any excellent grades that term but still did not fail. Finally spring came and with it came baseball. There was no varsity baseball team, only an interclass series. I got a berth E T II K V A L E X I A X (Sfasggfc-IBT at third base on the Freshman team. Our team did not meet a single defeat. We had a large lanky Freshman pitching. Xo one seemed to be able to hit him. That ended my first year. All that summer I had a job on an ice wagon. My second year started like the first when I again went home with a physical certificate for football. Then came interclass basketball. I he same bunch with whom I am now playing won the interclass cup. The varsity coach picked five of the Sophomore fellows on the first team. Xew suits were given to eight fellows, and to my great delight 1 got a first team suit. My highest ambition was almost achieved. After mid-term examinations 1 was the only Sophomore left on the first eight. I always got fair grades, but 1 had to work. I worked harder in my Sophomore year than any of the other three. I got up at 6 A. M.. milked the cow. and fed the horses. I washed up and went to school. After school 1 practiced basketball and came home and milked the cow about 7 P. M., got supper, and worked on my studies until about 10 P. M. That year I received a basketball letter, the only Sophomore in high school to receive one. That spring the Sophomores won the cup again. I made third base and captained the team for tin-second year; I also took part in track for the high school, running the mile in lcs than five minutes. This ended my Sophomore year in the high school. I worked on the ice wagon again that summer. "When my Junior year opened there was no football team. Haskethall was started earlier. I was elected captain of the Junior team that year but we lost the cup. I was again picked for the varsity that year. We had a hard schedule and went through with only three defeats. We were doped to go to the State, but were beat out by another team in an overtime game. That Spring we had a varsity baseball team after our class won the interclass for the third straight time. I made my old place at third base again as captain. We did not do so bad for the first year. 1 again went out for track. The day before the sectional track meet I went to the Junior-Senior Prom. It was necessary for me to learn how to dance, get a date, and also a good razzing from the fellows. Thus the third year ended. 1 worked at the same job as the two previous summers. "At last school started again, my last year in high school. This year 1 did not have chores to do. My shoes were polished every other day. Trousers were pressed at least once a week. This year I took more interest in the social affairs at tht- high school. I was rather popular and received the honor of the vice-presidency of the Senior Class. I also was vice-president of the Hi-Y. (a club for the best type of boys.) I was secretary of the Athletic Association, took part in the oratorical and numerous other activities. Hut all of this did not make me forget basketball. 'The Seniors won tlu- cup easily. I was honored as captain of that five. This live made up the first team for about two weeks. We finished the season with but live defeats out of twenty scheduled games. About the middle of the year the school faculty decided to start student government. I had a great amount of work to do when this started, because I waned to help all in my power. This is about all of the storv since I have only about six weeks of high school left.
