The chorus, consisting of thirty-eight members under the leadership of Mr. Jeffers, spent the first semester studying three-part songs. The girls were grouped so that about one half of them sang the first or so- prano parti and the others sang the second or alto part. The boys sang the third or baritone part. During the first semester the chorus took part in various programs. On one occasion they sang a group of songs at a meeting of the Parent- Teachers Association. On January 15 they sang a group of songs at the Clay County Teacher's Institute. The second semester was spent in the preparation of a cantata, "Spring Cometh", which was presented at the school building on the night of' April 8. Rachel Marlow and Isabel Buzard were chorus pianists. M. L. Smith-Dry Cleaning and Dyeing. Phone 343, 5 E.. Nat.

The orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. J effers, showed much im- provement this year and has been playing a better and more difficult grade of music. It is a much better balanced organization this year due to the fact that two clarinets, an E-flat horn, and two violins have been added. During the year the orchestra has played for all the P. T. A. meet- ings except one, and on January 15, entertained the Clay county teachers at Institute with a number of selections. It also assisted in the musi- Cale that was presented April 8th by playing a group of selections. The band has also been greatly improved and has furnished music for many of the basketball games both at home and away.

Page twenty-four 113 - i i j!g54"""' During the few years that Mr. Roberts has been trustee, he has shown particular interest in the schools. He has made several improvements which have been for increased school efficiency. The people of Van Buren Township showed their appreciation of his ef- forts When they elected him to his present position. It is our desire that students going from Van Buren will be better prepared to meet successfully many of life's problems. Surely our schools are better prepared to produce more efficient students. Our sin- cere hope is that the boys and girls that go from Van Buren will be reliable, enthusiastic, and valuable citi- zens for the future generation. Hudsovfs Battery Sz Electrical Service, 517 E.

Wells, Russ Pell, Godfrey Green, Robert Thompson, Edward Hoffman, Watt Pell, George Reberger, Homer Al- bright, Benjamin Hoskins. These eight truck drivers and two janitors have been found to be indispensable to Van Buren. This school year was started with all new trucks, among which are three Chevrolets, two Internationals, two Reos, and one Dodge. These are quite an improvement over those of last year, being much safer, speedier, and more comfortable. These drivers begin their work before seven o'clock A. M. and re- sponsibility continues throughout the day until four-thirty P. M. They have also willingly consented to drive the busses to all entertainments in order to accomodate all students and patrons. Above all they keep their sunny dispositions in the face of unpleasant situations. Some even maintain school discipline by having a definite seat for each pupil, taking attendance each trip, and avoiding unnecessary danger by stopping traf- fic on the National Road. The janitors keep the school building as clean as possible and are forever at some of their innumerable duties. Their chief delight after twelve hours labor is to sojourn to the cafeteria and revel in dates and pie. fAlthough Ben declares that he never had a date in his life.J Compliments of Da1n1n's M asia, Book and Gift Shop--Brazil, Indiana Page twenty-six . ffpfgk I ,N It I I ax I 5 Kg , 1 II -If ' NC..

Mr. Piety is very popular with the student body and enjoys the well-deserved respect of each of his players. The spirit of fair play and sportsmanship demonstrated by his cohorts attest alike to his untiring ' efforts and ability.

I-Ie has another year to prove his value to his school. WILBURN CUNNINGHAM-Forward This is "Web's" first year to play on the varsity squad. He is a val- uable addition. We expect great playing next year, "Web"! FREDDIE HILLMAN-Forward Freddie has played two years with the regulars. He has always shown an enthusiastic spirit and we are sorry that this is his last year to play on the team. IRVIN LANDES-Guard Irvin has fought hard to preserve the winning spirit of Van Buren. He is one of the most valuable men ever to be produced by Van Buren. Besides being the defensive mainstay, his offensive ability has made him rank second. JOHN SPOOR-Center John has always shown a loyal and tenacious spirit since he has been on the team. He has twoq more years to help the basketball squad. HUBERT SMITH-Guard During this year, Hubert has played fast and hard. Say, we are surely glad that he, has another year to show his skill in basketball! RAY STEVENSON-Forward Ray has completed three years of basketball at Van Buren. The fans like to see him play because of his determination to win. Yes, Ray intends to play again next year! THOMAS THOMAS-Guard "Tommie" is fast and aggressive and could always be depended upon to put up a scrap. He is another player that will be lost through gradua- tion. , WILLIAM THOMPSON-Center Even though this is "Bill's" last year on the squad, we shall remem- ber his excellent sportsmanship and hard fighting. WOODROW WILSON-Guard This is "Woody's" third and last year on the first squad. He has been one of Coach Piety's mainstays in the enemy's territory, and could always be depended upon to "mess up" their best plays. We are going to miss him very much next year.

Piety immediately went to work on this small squad. With four weeks of practice the Piety men were ready for Bowling Green who came to Van Buren to be our first foe, Oct. 30. They were sent home to the tune of 30-17, the Blue and Grays taking the contest. The Van's second stringers came through with a 21-16 win over Bowling Green's second team. On November 6 we gathered up a few basketballs and the first team and went over to Indiana State at Terre Haute. Our boys didn't play the game they were capable of playing and were beaten 23-14. Next, on Nov. 13, Ashboro paid us a visit, bringing their first and second teams. After a hard fought game, which was close at all times, the Vans first team won 27-24. The Seconds were not so fortunate, and lost 23-12. Nov. 20 we took both teams to Staunton hoping to win our third victory but were defeated in two hard fought games. The Regulars lost to Staunton 11-24, while the Seconds lost 11-26. Nov. 27 the Fontanet teams came to Van Buren and both their first and second teams were beaten. Our first team won 25-16. The Seconds won by a close score of 12-11. Dec. 5 Rosedale came to Van,Buren. Ill luck seemed to follow the Vans and the first team was beaten 17-22, for the first time on the home floor. The Seconds were more fortunate and won 13-11. Dec. 11 Staunton paid us a call, bringing both teams. The Vans lost the first team game 12-20. Staunton seemed to be. a bitter pill for us this year. The Van Buren "B" team won a hard fought game 17-16. On Dec. 18 we were hosts to Belle Union. Our first team handed the Belle's a 28-18 defeat. Our second team was also victorious, defeat- ing Johnson's team 17-11. Dec. 22 we took the road to Cory. Remembering how Cory had bumped us off in the tournament at Brazil in 1930, we were determined to win, and we did so by the smallest, margin possible. The score was 19-18. The second team won 24-13. Dec. 23 the hard fighting Ashborof teams came to Van Buren. Re- membering the fight it took to win our previous game with them, we ex- Compliments of Brazil Clothing Co. 110 West National Ave. Page thirty : VAN OF 1932 pected another hard fought game. When the final score was read Van Buren was in the lead 19-14. The second team was less fortunate and was beaten 13-16. Jan. 2 Mecca came to Van Buren to start the New Year off correctly, basket-ballically speaking. We were as fully determined to win as they were, and we did 20-12. A Jan. 9 the fast Patricksburg five came to Van Buren loaded with buck shot and they got us. The score was 11-24 in favor of Patricksburg. On Jan. 15 we journeyed to Otter Creek. We were no match for the Otters in their home stream, and when the mist had cleared away the score was 10-28 in their favor. On Jan. 22 we met Ashboro in the Wabash Valley Preliminaries at Clay City. Although We had defeated Ashboro twice before this we lost to them by one point. The final score was 10-9. February 5 after a two weeks rest we played Cory here at Van Burenf The Vans played an excellent game and won. 38-22. The Van's second team was rather careless and! lost to Cory's second team with a score of 19-21. ' February 12 the Vans played the Alumni. Most of the Alumni team was out of training and they were easily beaten by a score of 26-9. The Van's second team won over Mr. Johnson's team 10-6. February 19 we journeyed to Jasonville and lost to the Jasons by a score of 30-15. ' On the following Saturday night, Feb. 20, we defeated Fontanet on their own floor by the narrow margin of 3 points-the official record was 22-25. Our second team lost 14-9. For our first game in the state tournament we drew Bowling Green. If we succeed in winning this game we meet Spencer at 2 P. M. Satur- day. A win here brings us to the finals. We are living in hopes!

Everything of domestic joy or occupational success has to be built on bodily wholesomeness and vitality. Health is essential to the enjoyment, all through life, of sports and active bodily exercise. It is also necessary to continuous capacity for hard workg and it is only through active play and hard Work that any- body can make sure of the durable satisfactions of life. No scheme of education can claim to be rounded out and to be de- veloped to its fullest extent unless it provides for physical education. The purpose of all education is to strengthen character and promote citizenship, and physical education is particularly situated to do these things as well as promote healthy and Well built bodies. In the physical education department these ideals and aims are being approached through such activities as athletic games, sports, rhythmical drills and aesthetic exercises. Very much interest is being shown and the classes are gradually increasing. Basketball is a favorite game and each year a class tournament is held. Last year the surprise of the girls' tourney was the victory of the Sophomores over the other classes, While the Junior boys won the boys' tournament. Deck tennis and kick pin ball have been added to the girls' program and they have been accepted with much enthusiasm. Clog and character dances have also proved to be very popular With the girls. The biggest event of the year is the physical education demonstra- tion. This program is a demonstration of the regular class Work and is Well supported by the patrons of the school.

The following officers were elected: President, Thelma Mathis, Vice President, William Thompson, Secretary-Treasurer, Maude Marian Herbert. Meetings are held every two weeks on Thursdays at the sixth period. Few meetings have been held so far, and little has been accomp- lished. It was organized by the Public Speaking class under the super- vision of Mrs. Eaglesfield, with the understanding that the Junior mem- bers of this year will carry it on next year. All Seniors and Juniors with an average of C in English are eligible. The purpose of this club is to study the art of dramatics and to pre- sent entertainments consisting of readings, plays, etc. An entertainment committee was elected as follows: William Thompson, Della Pell and Esther Woollard. It is their duty to have a program for each meeting and to arrange programs for other purposes, if requested. One play en- titled, "When Martha and George Returned" has been presented to date. The cast was as follows: George Washington ..... ...... W illiam Thompson Martha Washington ....... ...... E sther Woollard George ........................... .........

Daily luncheons are prepared, by the home economics girls under the very capable direction of Miss Modesitt. The food is not only of good quality but also is sold to the students at a reasonable price. Many students eat Warm luncheons in the school cafeteria at less cost than they could prepare them at home. So efficient has been the work of Miss Modesitt and the cafeteria girls that we are sure their husbands will never suffer from the lack of well-prepared food. "Mildred, wake up!"-Mrs. Marks.

A short time after we enrolled in our school subjects, we had our first class meeting. Mary Frances Caress and Raymond McHargue were our spon- sors. We elected the following class officers: George Starinsky, presi- dent, Virginia Altman, vice president, and Woodrow Wilson, secretary and treasurer. Soon after that, we gave a Hallowe'en party which all enjoyed. Later several members of our class gave two plays entitled, "Smiles" and "Matches are Matches", written by Della Pell. In the inter-class basketball tournament our class came within a few points of beating the Sophomores. George Starinsky of our class was a member of the varsity basketball team. Maradean McIntyre, a Freshman, was elected assistant yell leader. That first year, we heard the upper classmen boast continually about what they would accomplish before and during their Senior year. How- ever, we shouted our ambitions to the "Wind". In spite of this fact, we obtained knowledge and created ideals that would help us thereafter. In the second year of our high school life, the following class officers were elected: Della Pell, president, Thelma Mathis, vice president, and Maude Marian Herbert, secretary and treasurer. Socially, athletically, musically and, no doubt, studiously we were en- gaged, and we had about as good a time as anybody. However, we can- not say that the Hallowe'en party was as much enjoyed as the one which We gave the previous year. Many contests in athletics were won by us during our second year. The Sophomore girls won the final inter-class baseball tournament which was against the girls of the Senior class. One of the feature events of the year was a "funeral" given to the Senior girls after we defeated them. In addition, our boys won the inter-class baseball tournament. In the Junior Class, we retained the same class officers that We had when we were Sophomores. As usual, we gave the "traditional Hallow- e'en party" for the Seniors. In return the Seniors gave us a "hard time party". In that year, our first victory in athletics was the defeat of the Sen- ior boys in the inter-class baseball tournament. The next day, the Seniors, at chapel period, presented us a goat in token of defeat. To repay, we gave them a "funeral". Yes, we were proud of our basketball players: Compliments of J. A. Turner'-F'irst class auto repairing Page forty THE VAN OF 1932 J we contributed five to the "first ten". These were: William Thompson, Woodrow Wilson, Ray Stevenson, Freddie Hillman and Irvin Landes. Our J unior-Senior reception was a very elaborate affair, held in Bra- zil, at the Glenn home. Si and Ezra of radio station WBOW furnished fine entertainment. Also Mrs. Paul Isenbarger interpreted a play and gave several readings which all greatly enjoyed. Both Juniors and Sen- iors were much pleased with the reception. This completed our social activities for the Junior year. Our class has at last reached that goal that looms up before the little Freshman when he first enters high school. The path has been rugged, and many have dropped along the wayside. Our band now numbers only twenty-three. We have at last gained the crown of Seniorship, and our leaders, Johnson and Erwin, who are guiding us carefully and faithfully, have helped us to gain the title, "DigniHed Seniors". QA doubt lingers in our minds as to whether or not we gained this title honestly.J We are a carefree, happy group, and, although we are weary from travel, we have enjoyed our journey through the Wilderness of High School so im- mensely, that we regret that now we see a faint glimmer of light fFutureJ not so far ahead. We have become merely beginners once more. 'It is now our task to prepare for that sudden light ahead, and accustom ourselves to it. We know not what the new territory holds for us. Oh, that it were the Wilderness of High-School! The time is almost here when the pathway ceases to be one continuous, path, but many paths. Each one leads to a different destination. Some are good and some are evil. We must make our own choice and travel our own path, our own way without leaders. Some of our band will travel the pathway to the Jungle of College, which is much more dense and complicated than the Wilderness of High-School. There is the pathway to Matrimony, and some few have already chosen this path. The path toi Employment looms up before most of our band, and it is a very rugged one., In late years, old travelers tell us, the road-bed has been completely destroyed and one must be alert to keep on the right road, for a yawning desert surrounds it, and hundreds have lost their way and have died from thirst. We have been so engrossed in our travel, and the duties which we must fulfill, that we have had little time for recreation. We gave a movie, in order to secure funds for further travel, but, so many were engrossed in their journeys on the road to Employment that they could not turn back. The attendance was not so good, and since we made so little we decided that funds must be raised otherwise. The band of students just a mile behind us, called the Juniors, gave a delightful "Haye Lofte Party" at which we were the honored guests. Then "Happy Days", a benefit minstrel sponsored by the Brazil Business Women, came to our rescue. For satisfactory meats go to W. H. Grass, 117 E.

Among their most noted works we find a playlette entitled "She Made a Pumpkin Pie", another called "Polishing Henry", and for the Christmas entertainment they presented "Christmas Bouquets". We have our cooks who cook for all the travelers in the Wilderness and they call themselves the "Cafeteria Girls". They are a jolly group. Some time soon the Junior class will again honor us, this time with the customary "Reception", Then we look our best, smile our sweetest, and the Juniors tell us how much they have enjoyed following us. The great event has not yet occurred, and neither has "Baccalaureate" or "Graduation Day", the day on which we receive our awardsj and choose our path in the Future. Before that day we must have finished our "Diary", which is more commonly called "The Van". The day is near at hand when our little band must turn their backs on their followers, forever, and choose our pathway which eventually leads us to Success. Our Senior year will never be forgotten and we shall always think of our followers with high respect. We all raise our voices on high, and shout this over the highest trees in the Wilderness, to all those who are struggling through its denseness-"Good Luck and Good Wishes for Happiness and Success in your Fuure Undertakings l" BOVINE PERVERSITY At dusk, upon a steep ascent, In silhouette against the sky, She stands, her poise and form present A savage picture to the eye.

S. We had accu- mulated quite a large sum of money, and after being informed by reliable lawyers that the million dollar estate of John D. Rockerbilt had been will- ed to us, we decided that we could afford this trip. I think it appropriate to relate a few of our experiences, especially those meetings with our beloved chums who graduated with the "Class of '32". Upon our arrival in Pittsburg we were directed to the beautiful Ta- coma Hotel where we were met by a large, robust, stalwart colored por- ter. We immediately noticedl his resemblance to our friend, Charles Stallcop. Imagine our surprise when he solved the question by explain- ing, confidentially, that. he Was under disguise as a colored porter on ac- count of the large salary attached to the position. After dinner we decided to go to a show, and when we reached the Plaza Theatre we were again greeted by a big surprise. Heading the Vaudeville program was "The Wilson Family", in person. Mystro, the magician Cformerly Woodrow Wilsonb performed many daring acts such as the removing and replacing of heads of living human beings. He also produced doves, rats, and other living animals from utter space. After Mystro's performance came his wife, the former Iva Landis, and with her were six of their children, all of whom were distinguished dancers and trapeze Performers. After a good night's rest we started for New York, and it was on the following Saturday night that we arrived at New York City. As it was our custom to attend church on Sunday mornings, we arose early the next morning and attended the Christian Church. When the minister, a short, fat, curly-haired and very good-natured-looking gentleman, ap- peared we recognized him as William Thompson. Although during our school days he was never thought of as a future "sky pilot" he delivered a marvelous sermon on "The Degeneration of our High School People". As it had always been Maude Marian's ambition to take an airplane ride, we agreed to stop at a large airport in Buffalo, where only reliable aviators were employed. As we were walking toward the plane a pilot approached us, and who was he but Thomas Haughee? After the ride we spent almost an hour talking with him and he seemed very happy to in- form us of his marriage to Edna Marks. We visited Edna that afternoon and she also was very proud of her home and family. Yes, she had a library! When we arrived at Niagara Falls there was a great crowd and much Johnny, in Latin-"The man run into the enemy's end" Page forty-eight 2--I-I 1E VAN OF 1932 J h I' excitement in the vicinity of the Canadian Falls. After some inquiry we learned that Thelma Mathis was scheduled to go over these Falls in a barrel. We stayed to see this breath-taking performance and immedi- ately after she appeared, we presented ourselves to this "dare-devil", as she was commonly called. She had almost forgotten us, we are sorry to say, and because of an important engagement, she could not spend much time with us. The following day we took a boat excursion on Lake Erie. The cap- tain of the boat, Joseph Orme, had to introduce himself toy us because he had grown so large that we failed to recognize him. He informed us that Morris Latham's famous orchestra was employed on the upper deck so we went up and danced. After our departure from the boat, we, being very hungry, dined at the Ritzmore Restaurant, owned and operatedl by Mr. Paul Frost. Our dinner was delicious, consisting of rare groundhog, pepper salad, boiled mushrooms, and mulberries with ginger sauce. The cook employed in this high-class restaurant was the former Amy Sawyer. This accounted for the good foods served here! Upon leaving the region of the Great Lakes we motored westward toward Washington. We feared that our "Consolatory 8" might be need- ing repairs on account of our continuous driving, so we stopped at the I-Ieacox Motor Co., Spokane, Washington, where only this type of car was produced. While we were waiting for our car to be checked and repaired we took a taxi tour around Spokane. Charlie was still a pal to J acli and in- formed us that Mr. Jack Schlatter owned the largest and most efficient taxi service in the city, so of course we thought it our. duty to patronize him. I must not fail to mention that all of J ack's taxis were 1950 Model Consolators. When we returned to the garage Charles told us that our car was ready but, we didn't fail to notice that there were a few parts of the motor lying scattered about. He assured us that the car would run just as well Without the parts so we departed without any argument. After leaving Washington we did not meet any more of our old friends until we reached San Francisco, Cal., where we secured rooms at the Lakeshore Hotel. During our second day while sitting in the sun parlor of the! hotel we noticed a child that was a perfect image of the former Mildred Hoskins. We inquired concerning this child and found that she was one of a set of triplets and the proud parents were Mr. and Mrs. K. Asdale. After a week's visit in San Francisco we motored to Los Angeles. One of our many experiences here was our admittance to a first class movie studio, owned and operated by Thomas Thomas, a very distinguish- "Great Scottsf'--Mildred May Page forty-nine THE VAN OF 1932 J - ,, , , I ed director. We watched the rehearsal for the new picture, "The Mil- lion Dollar Baby", starring Yvonne Parkhurst, who in reality was my old friend, Helen Price. We didn't fail to notice the sparkling diamond on her left hand and, upon questioning her, we learned of her engagement to the director. The next day we made an appointment at the Rosebud Beauty Shoppe and to our surprise found that Florence Ruark was the proprietor. It was at this popular shoppe that the movie stars received their treatments so we felt that we could risk a marcel and manicure. Before we left the shoppe Florence asked me if I would like to have my face lifted and if I would care to purchase a wig, thus plainly insinuating that I needed both. In San Diego we met our former school mate, Freddie Hillman, who is now the owner of a large glue factory. He surely was sticking to the job! I suppose all the readers of this article are acquainted with the fact that he is also the World's Champion Heavy-Weight. It was during our visit in Florida that we again met with some of our old school friends. It had always been my desire to attend the Uni- versity of Florida so while we were in the vicinity of this school we de- cided to see the place. Upon our entrance in the main building we were looking over the list of professors and were astonished to see the name, "Clyde Mathis" at the head of the list. He had gained one of the high- est positions possible in this college. Farther down this list, under the athletic instructors, was the name of Irwin Landis, whom we found to be held in high esteem by all officials and students. We engaged in a good conversation with these two friends and were astonished when Clyde broke the news that he was married. At this particular time his wife was in the hospital following an attack of ap- pendicitis, and although his wife was a stranger to us, we paid our re- spects by visiting her. While we were at this beautiful Methodist Hos- pital we met Della Pell, a superintendent and nurse of the highest de- gree. She seemed very happy with her position and chatted with us about her patients. As we had met and visited with all of our old school chums we de- parted for home with a feeling of happiness. Upon our return home this feeling of happiness was changed into one of utter disappointment when the eminent lawyers, Johnson and Irwin, called to inform us that the Rockerbilt will was not valid, thus we two old maids were left penniless and desperate. We are still penniless but no longer "old maids"! -Wilma Mathis "Gosh, Fm sleepy!"-Thelmoa Page fifty O THE VAN OF 1932 KK 7 FAFIILY Tue uaou: 5 .

We're full of ideals and ambitions, but We only number twenty-three. Iva isn't so bashful this year, And in "math"-how she does shine. In running her future bakery shop, We feel that she'l1 succeed just fine. Irwin is our "blue-eyed blond", Who shoots his goals from afar. We hope that some day he will be A famous basketball star. In the Skillet Brigade, Milly has full sway, And her reign will ever be supreme, So you see, Peck will get lots of good food, When he weds our dark-eyed Kitchen Queen. Did you ever read of our author? Yes, it's our faithful Della Pell. For two years and a half as president, She ruled us wisely and well. Paul Frost is our "Lochinvar", With manners exceedingly polite. 'He never shirks his duties But argues for what is right. We can never forget our "Woody" Who greets all with a smile. But deep down in his fun-loving nature There's a bit of seriousness, once i a while. n Wilma has fallen for "Shorty" As one can readily see, And it isn't hard to imagine What her future life will be. Kibby-"I want some poetical license so I can talk as I please Page fifty-two THE VAN OF 1932 A pal whom we shall never forget Is Helen-a sweet lass so gay She is always full of mischief and fun, Good fortune will surely come her way. A handsome lad is Thomas Haughee And has quite a "case" with Dorothy Jane. His love is clinging as a vine to a stump, We hope that his efforts won't be in vain. Maude Marian is truly a friend, And if one is really wise- He will find many good qualities Revealed in her dreamy blue eyes. Freddie's the truth-loving type of a lad, Whose hair is a mass of curls. Although he's had many chances He doesn't care much for girls. Florence Ruark is a jolly good sport, With hazel eyes and chestnut hair. Greencastle seems to be her favorite town And "they" may end up by living there. Did you e'er see pals so inseparable As our boys-Charley and Joe? They will always be found together No matter where they may go. Amy Sawyer is very demure And she is modest, too. To all those who know her, She is a friend always true. Another set of Siamese twins Is Charley Heacox and Jack. They have friends and girls galore And for mischief they do not lack. Matrimony doesn't interest Thelma so much As it does so many people, But Wib, a diamond, a Dodge, and such Bring visions of a tall church steeple.

But his friendship will sure repay If only you'll try him out. Twinkle, twinkle, little star, Oh, how cute you think you are! There are no Y's in Tommie's name But the T's Cteasej are there just the same. Bill is like Aeneas of old Who was always determined to win. In the coming years, it can be truthfully told That he's fighting the battles of lifej with a grin We know Edna as a tease, This particular lass, She is always at ease, When teasing some one of her class. How sweet is love the poets sing When it pierces the tender heart! And Morris will not foret the ring When he takes his "love" who shall not depart. Good luck to Mr. Johnson! With him we have had lots of fun. He thinks a lot of his basketball team, Next year we hope many games will be won. We shall never forget Mr. Erwin, Who always says something real funny, Just by looking at him one can see His disposition will always be sunny. With happy memories lingering In the region of our mind With grateful thoughts we bid adieu To the school we must leave behind.

This is the dilemma that confronts Gilda Wakefield, and she meets it by sending the politician about his business and becoming her own boss. Thencefor- ward, their meetings are about as affectionate as an encounter between two strange bull-dogs. Throughout this free-for-all fracas, the girl may- or has the backing of her ex-fiance, a young attorney, who has refused to be the boss' rubber-stamp. Other valuable allies are Sammy, the foxy publicity man, and his ladylove, the slangy, gum-chewing stenographer, who, in a mix-up with the boss, is equal to tackling the latter's snobbish wife single-handed.

Page fifty-five THE VAN OF 1932 WISE AND OTHER Y's THE SONG OF THE NIGHT Under the stars when the soft dew falls And the fireflies in myriads gleam, The Wanderer lies down next to Mother Earth To find rest that's divinely supreme. A soft breeze stirs the leaves of the trees, And they sing with a caress in each note A lonely refrain, that soothes the pain And eases the ache in the heart. As time goes by the moon rides high, And casts her silvery light On the little gay brooklet, that sparkles and shines And joins in the song of the night. The chirp of the cricket, the hoot of the owl Are hushed with the coming of the day, The great red sun rises up in the east The Wanderer must up and away. As he goes, in his heart, he surely sings- Surely sings with all his might, The song he heard the night before, The beauteous songi of the night. -Bertha May AN OLD SWEETHEART OF MINE A hungry dog once wandered Into a butcher's store, The butcher threw some sausage, To the dog, upon the floor. The butcher said, "Now eat it", The dog said, "I decline- For in that link of sausage, Is an old sweetheart of mine." MEOW! Poor Uncle, he's so awfully deaf He can't hear the magpies chat, And once he said his evening prayer While kneeling on the cat. -Wib Lassell "Don't I know it?"--Helen Page fifty-six THE VAN OF 1932 A ROMANTIC FOOL When the moon comes over the mountain, my love for you engulfs me. I am carried away on the moon-beams to a distant land, where you are queen. You sit on a beautiful throne all made of diamonds, while your face is like some beautiful flower in itself. Your lips form a most perfect arch, as beautiful as the rainbow itself. Your eyes beam out from that perfection of features as two stars shining in the blue sky. Your nose, a tiny turned up thing, is just one more thing to complete this perfection of features. You are to me, the most beautiful person on earth. Well, I always have heard that love was blind so, that accounts for that. -Author Unknown. WITHOUT'S A man without a country, THE SONG OF THE ONION Carrots get by on their color, Spinach gets by on its rep, Lettuce or beet, for vitamines eat, But give me the onions for pep! Silver-skinned onion or Spanish, Or little ones, green on the top, They build up physique, make you strong where you're weak, But socially cause you to flop. For even the mildest Bermuda, Cannot be forgotten when gone, It is not erratic, but very emphatic, Its melody will linger on. -Apologies to Grey. THE THREE STORY STEPS fAnswers received on Eng. testi 1. Introduction tells what your story is to be about. 2. Main incident or body tells what happened. 3. Confusion tells how it ended. A king without a throne, A boy without a doggie, A dog without a bone, A navy sans a sailor- An army with no tents, These things are bad, But have you had A teacher minus sense. Wilma was out for, a ride in the country. She saw a swamp where cat-tails were growing. "Oh, Shorty!" she exclaimed, "Look at the hot-dog garden". It was a summer day in winter, The sun was shining bright, A bedbug hopped a jitney bus, And rode out of town that night. The kinds of gender are: feminine is a male man, masculine is a female, neuter is both, and common is neither. fAnswers received from a student in Mrs. Marks seventh grade English class.J "Come on and fight, Johnson, let's fight!"-Charles H. Page fifty-scvcn 4 nn I :- THE VAN OF 1932 J AN EGGSCELENT SUGGESTION Anent the state bird. She is in your back yard and she is an egg producer. She is not eggs-otic, but nativeg she is typical of the real In- dianian. She riseth early in the morning, she picketh where she scratch- eth, and goeth about her business of producing the egg end of ham and eggs. She cackleth after she layeth, and sometimes she lieth. She is aristocratic, she bringeth forth her young and turneth them over to a coal oil lamp nurse to be brought up, leaving her hours free for afternoon bridge and tea fights. She stayeth in her own back yard tif she can't get outl and is content, and nothing tickles the palate of mankind like a nice fried egg from a contented hen. She is not eggs-acting in her de- mands. All she wants is to be let alone in her pursuit of happiness, fish- worms and grasshoppers, and a place to scratch whether it itches or not. When she passeth on to that bourne from which no hen returns, she sets an eggs-ample to her posterity by leaving behind a trail blazed with chicken and noodles. Um, boy! I believe I am not eggs-aggerating when I say that life Without eggs would be eggs-asperating, so let us, by all means, raise the hen to the eggs-alted position of the official state bird. Mrs. Piety asked her husband to copy the radio recipe one morning. The husband did his best, but got two stations, one broadcasting setting up exercises, and the other, the recipe. This is what he got: "Hands on hips, place one cupful flour on shoulders, raise knees and depress toes, and wash thoroughly in one-half cupful of milk. In four counts, raise both legs and mash two hard boiled eggs in a sieve. Re- peat six times. Inhale one teaspoon of baking powder and one cupful of flourg breathe through the nose and exhale and sift. Jump to a stride, stand and bend the white of an egg backward and forward overhead, and in four counts make a stil? dough that will stretch at the waist. Lie flat on the floor and roll into a marble the size of a walnut. Hop backward and forward in boiling water. In ten minutes remove from fire and dry with towel. Breathe deeply, put on a bathrobe and serve with fish soup." "Oh, Iva, you are always making up something?-Amy Page fifty-eight . . ,E i...-, THE VAN OF 1932 J 4 ,S9 ,,,.,- Q 1 FXJ f .Tj '.
