HIGH SCHOOL BUILDING WHERE THE WORK WAS DONE e ication We dedicate this, the fourth 'Z'0iH7'l'l6' of the Excalibztr, to MISS GRACE HALL whose izezfer tiring and ceaseless effarts have cmitifibuted to our education, and whose patience and sytmpatlietic guidance have won for her om' admiration and highest esteem.

The original ,fit purpose of this book is to perpetuate school activities and por- ilifj Q51 tray school life. Many events take place during the school year which, if not recorded, soon pass out of the memory to give way to the ever-increasing experiences of our later life. By means of this book these events are recorded both in words and pictures which bring back memories of activities we have participated in, or which we have had the pleasure of seeing or hearing, either as individuals or as a class. After graduating and advancing in the larger school of life, we often wish to retrace our advancement, to recall the things which once afforded us pleasure. Through this book our past school life lies before us in such a manner that we can never forget. The most important and the most joyous days of our lives are seen again as if reflected in a mirror of the past. The Excalibur is published by the Senior Class, but this by no means excludes the other classes, the seniors act merely as reporters who record the material which isnafforded by the activities in which the entire high school takes part. All the classesiare represented in all their activities. Without their support it would be impossible to cherish the hope of publishing a book to portray class and high school events. The expenses of publishing this annual are balanced by its sales, and the advertisements so readily taken by the business concerns, to show their willingness to approve and support school enterprises. Then you may ask the question why the Senior Class takes on this seem- ingly unnecessary work, if it in return brings no direct benefits. This may easily be answered, for in compiling and publishing this book the experience gained in both a literary and business way proves to be a valuable asset, while the book itself stands as a lasting memorial to the class. 12 ,LGAI-IQLI f ad gl ilu' - f U f ii.. lull - E Memories of the Seniors ,. v K .h T is a day to be remembered, when the Class of Twenty-two mf- , s'.- , , 5:24 made their a eara th V , ,I pp nce in e an Wert High School as a X l supreme effort for knowledge. They were dressed in their Sunday clothes, and shyly making their way toward the As- X I . ssl sembly room. After the perilous and difficult task of arranging schedules was performed, without further delay, the daily rout- ine of school life was taken up. it was at that time that the serious problem of organization confronted the brave pilgrims, and they called a meeting to elect the class officers. The leadership of the class was entrusted to Everett Speelman, with Marie Rucklos as assistant, Gaylord Leslie was allowed to take care of our money and Anna McClure to keep books. We enjoyed two class parties. These were very successful and gave many promises of the good times to be enjoyed in the future. It was after a profitable and happy vacation that we took up our pursuit once more to be more learned citizens. We now assumed a new position, in the style of that time, to show our rank as Sophomores, farther to the West in the Assembly Room. Once more we were ready to elect our officers, who were: President, Fred Rankg Vice-President, Marie Rucklosg Treasurer, Gaylord Leslie, and Secretary, Violetta Todd. We owe much to these classmates, for they did much to make progress during the year which they held office. VVe were well represented in athletics that year, giving a few members to all the high school teams. It was then that our basketball team of girls won the championship for i'nterclass games. They were very successful that year and as a reward had their picture in the Excalibur. They have been able to retain this reputation as the winning team for the girls. A greater number of social events were allowed us this year, and we happily took advantage of all. We gladly paid the sum which was necessary to attend our parties, became better acquainted, and always had a good time. Once more we started our year of toil and pleasure, after a glorious summer. We felt much wiser now, and thought we justly deserved the dignified name of Juniors. It was not so difficult to find our way about, as it had been in previous years, and we began to enjoy the famous Homer, as he posed before us. We resumed our studies with a very earnest desire to learn. As soon as possible we chose ofiicers. Paul Jones was unanimously elected president with Mildred Richards as a very worthy assistant. To show our appre- 13 7L5Al-ISL, ciation we honored Gaylord Leslie with the title of treasurer, and made Corinne Springer, who was very faithful, secretary. lt was with the utmost loyalty and devotion that they gave their time to the needs of the class. In the course of the year, a noteworthy event took place. To the astonish- ment of the citizens, a genuine class fight took place at the corner of VVashington and Main. VVishing we had not done it, when unpleasant results followed, we determined to stop them for the year. VVe decided on new class colors, which went more beautifully with the "blue and whiteu of the Seniors, and the "lavender and white" was adopted as the choice of the majority. With these colors the decorations were carefully made for the Junior Reception. This proved a glorious event, and was said to be the most beautiful in years. This event closed another year of marked success. Many have the feeling that "thirteen" is unlucky. lt proved the day to begin our Senior year. Chl but that was a day which was very lucky for us, for it started the happiest year of our lives. Paul jones retained his executive chair, keeping Mildred Richards for his assistant. A very worthy secretary, namely, Margaret Neel, was chosen, and Gaylord Leslie resumed his duties as treasurer. Another noted event was our Penny Fair, which proved to be of interest to all. The Oratorical Contest was given, being of benefit to all. Our social eve'nts were more numerous now than ever before. A picnic started the year, with the Farewell Party last. The Prom was a wonderful affair, and we feel very grateful to the juniors. Commencement was the solemn occasion which we thought of very seriously, and we began to dread the parting from our classmates. And, as we look back over our high school days, we realize that we are closing the most beautiful and sacred chapter in our lives and we begin the new era with pleasant and happy memories of school life. lVl,xRcsARnT BLACK. . il in f W . xx N' , al.

So they crossed the silvery river to what he called"'Lonesome Land", where an ugly witch was stirring the brew of prophecy. She gave them a sip and instantly they saw, through crimson clouds, a scroll unfold and a hand writing what they here record.

The crew became acquainted and joined in QW praise of Captain Harold Bowers, lflrst Mate Grace Harting, Boatswam lg Phillip Siler and Second Mate Harriet Wise. To avert a mutiny on the high sea, the officers in connnand entertained the crew at several splendid parties. Steadily following our course due east by north, we reached our port called Sophomore and there rested and prepared for the second voyage. Only one thing happened to mar our trip--just before we reached port we all became seasick as a result of being vaccinated. Second Voyage : Same good old crew and clear sailing under Captain Robert Rucklos, First Mate Kathryn Kyle, lloatswain John Cramer and Second Mate Vivian Long. Orders came from Admiral Karns that in order to promote learning among the crew. literary societies should be formed. Under the auspices of these societies. the crew presented a play, "The Heavenly Twins" Cand werenlt they heavenly?il for the benefit of the entire navy. The crew became such good friends that it was necessary to give a number of very successful parties. After passing the dangerous shoals called "Examin- ations", on which the lighthouse "Knowledge" stands, we reached our port, Junior, and as a climax to a successful voyage, we took a trip inland to Celina. Then we disbanded to meet again soon. Third Voyage: Once more the crew gathered under Captain Robert Rucklos, First Mate Harriet Wise, Roatswain Leo Werts and Second Mate Mary Chryst. After sev- eral days, rough sailing, peace reigned. Our crew has produced two splendid basketball teams, boys and girls, and we are expecting great things from them. Although our voyage is only half over we are able to take a glance ahead which shows that the last half will be even more eventful than the first. On March sixth, the ship of '23 will present the first Junior Class Play. A little later. in honor of the ship of ,22, the Junior Prom will be held which we hope to make the most successful one of all. And then at last the port of our great desire will be reached, which you know as Senior. MARY CnRvs'r, '23. 41 745Al-ISL! 5 rm-:un i lg ' .Hill 2 -A , ' llllllm.. Illllllli To Fame GI-jf XGD T was one of those delightfully glorious May mornings that the sun rose fs- 13, languidly over the hilltops, shining in full measure on the little village of Stratford. Fruit trees bursting into untold loveliness and song-birds .3 C. twittering gave the world an outward appearance of joyousness. 3,313 jane Boyd, however, rose from a night of restless slumber and ' ' S' troubled dreams to meet another day of trials and tribulations. To gaze upon her, one would 'not guess that she was worried. Nature had endowed jane with both beauty and simplicity, her long, jet-black braids falling over her shoulders as she hastily dressed for breakfast. Her face was extremely fair, with deep, wistful brown eyes filled to overflowing with joy intermingled with sorrow, and beautiful pearly teeth showing between a pair of perfect lips. What was it, then, that troubled Jane Boyd this magnificent May morning-a morning when even Nature seemed screaming with joy and ecstasy? jane was just an ordinary, hard-working and extremely intelligent high school girl, well in line for a scholarship when she graduated in June. Yet, as she trudged on her way to school her brow was drawn and her countenance was far from happy. ' The reason for Jane's anxiety was the age-old question of money. Her parents were poor, and could not afford to give her the college training they felt she deserved and should have. Yet, only the evening before, her father had pro- posed to sign a mortgage to secure funds to enable her to finish her education. Now. a terrible battle was raging between her conscience and desire. Could she allow her parents to live in poverty and spend their days in worry that she might go to college? No. She would earn money to pay her own way to the state university. lt was this decision that prompted Jane Boyd, who graduated with honors from Stratford High, to spend the next four years working in the telephone office. it was hard: people sneered: her friends ceased to recognize her when she passed them on the street, and her tired little body longed for the good times life held for others. Nevertheless. she was persistent and when her nerve began to fail she would grit her teeth and say over and over these lines by a humble poet: The heights by great men reached and kept, Were not attained by sudden flight. But they while their companions slept Were toiling upward thru the night. However, after four seemingly endless years, jane could boast of enough money to go to college. She was glad now that she had earned her own money. It seemed so splendid to be able to educate oneself. So, on one bright day in September. when leaves were turning red and gold. and pumpkins looked yellow between the corn shocks in the fields. Jane Boyd boarded a train for the State University. Her spirits were high and there was a flush upon her cheeks. All she needed now, to fit herself for the literary career 42 , 745AL.l3L! -S if' 'Hi - Q9 1 - she had dreamed of, was to study and make every moment count while she was in college. College life was all she expected it to be, gay chums, delightful surroundings and teachers ever ready to help her. She did her part, studied and took exam- inations, always coming forward with the best average in her class. She not only made good grades, but took part in athletics, dramatics and musical enter- tainments. Indeed, so good was her literary work that she was made editor of the college newspaper. Four years soon rolled away and a quite different jane boarded a train for her home town. On arriving home she settled down to devote her time to writing short stories, never thinking whether or not there would be a market for them. She soon found that publishers were very critical and harsh, they could find no use for her works. So finally she decided to write one more story. lf it was not accepted she would put her pen and ink on the shelf and cease Writing. After the story was finished and sent to the publisher for his opinion, jane waited anxiously for a reply. She watched daily for the postman and her eyes would droop with disappointment when he brought her no letter. Finally, after several weeks, she decided to apply for her old position at the telephone oiiice. A day or so later she was notified that she might return at once. So, with a sorrowful heart and broken spirits, jane began to dress for work. As she left the house she was hailed by the jolly postman, who was just turning in at the gate, waving a letter in his hand. ' Jane went back into the house with the letter, and throwing it on the table remarked that it was probably another returned story. Her mother, however, looking on the brighter side of things, insisted that Jane open the letter, telling her it might bring good news, so to satisfy her motherls curiosity, she tore open the small envelope. She drew out a sheet of white creased paper, and as she unfolded it a narrow green slip of paper fell on the table. She did not wait to read the letter, but snatched up what later proved to be a check, her hands trem- bling with excitement. At last she had found a market for her works-seventy-five whole dollars for that short story. It seemed too good to be true. After the first wave of excitement was over, she read the letter and she found that her last story, "To Fame", had sounded exceptionally good to the publisher. Yes, and he would feel it a privilege to look over any other stories she had at her home. Jane Boyd is no longer seeking a publisher for her stories. She has reached the height of success and is now well on the road to fame. 43 6 j ,"s-J-1-l-1- Vi ,r , vac!!!-ISL!

Soon after the be innin of school we or anized with the following , 1. Hi 3 S g ' o cers: President-John Eckenstein. V ice-President-Virginia Campbell. Secretary-Ruth Bonnewitz. Treasurer-Oscar jones. Our membership exceeded one hundred. Our first party occurred in October, when we took advantage of the crisp, clear moonlight nights to have a hayrack party to Humphrey's woods, where we all ate of the -usual "weenies,', apples and toasted marshmallows. That party can best be described as jolly, for we surely had a jolly and carefree time. About that time the football season was in full swing and we began eagerly to watch and encourage our classmates who were on the team. Our four letter men in football were John Eckenstein, Arthur Lybarger, Robert Hines and Nor- man Conn. Are we proud of them? Indeed we are! In the latter part of November the girls decided to give a dinner for all of the Sophomore boys in honor of the football players in our class. Give it we did, with an evident degree of success. At least, so they say. Then came Christmas vacation and finally-exams. Visions of geometrical figures, Julius Caesar and other nonsensical CU bits of learning troubled our hitherto peaceful minds. We came out of the fray breathless but smiling. Now, there-I did forget our party of january sixth, held in the gym. It was a novel party, in that the entertainment was very different. We compared numbers and found our partners, after which a number of amusing prophecies were made concerning each couple. Lantern slides and card games formed a large part of the entertainment which preceded a luncheon, served cabaret style. Im- 45 5 A I- I 5 - b fe T! 1"' 'Nh if in i - """fl"' 2 2 H F:' I V i I. . i I-if llllln.. promptn dancing concluded the party, which in my opinion was the most enjoy- able of all our class parties. But enough for our parties, and back to athletics, where we find "Norm" Conn and "licky" defending our honor on the high school basketball team. For some reason our girls' team didn't materialize, so we were forced to rely on our many boys, who were out for practice to represent us in athletics. After all, it isn't all in our parties or athletics but it is the spirit of friendliness and loyalty which they create, isn't it, folks? It is upon our spirit that we pride ourselves and upon our efforts to make our class the peppiest class in high school. VIRGINIA ELLIOT CAMPBELL, '24. Radio Wins Out qv? GB MORRIS, red faced, perspiring and out of breath, dropped his lug- 'ki gage to the ground and looked at the station master. ,mf "VVhat! The train left an hour ago? Well, wouldn't that eat you l" 9 "Yes," said the man at the station. "You're a bit slow. Your friends are well on their way to Asynth by this time." -..W Morris was disappointed. He, the president of the Wakeful Radio Association, had forgotten the new train schedule and his fellow radio bugs had gone on their excursion to the mountains without him. "just my confounded luck,', sighed Morris as he turned to go. "I have it,' interrupted the station master. 'tThe pay train is due in forty minutes. Sheis running light, just a mail car and two boxcars. You can board her when she stops for water and catch your friends at Layton. They lay over there until evening." "Bully!" shouted Morris, his eyes sparkling with joy. "Say, but won't the gang be surprised when I drop into their midst ?" Perhaps it would be well to state that Bob Morris had been elected president of the Wakeful Radio Association because of his knowledge and intense interest in the wireless game. Not only had Morris conducted the club in a very credit- able manner, but he had also designed a rather unique and compact transmitter which he hoped to patent, with the view of installing a system of railroad wireless with the local branch. It was by this means that Morris was to raise funds to put him through col- lege. Twice he had interviewed the president of the railroad in an effort to gain his support, but twice the president had said, rather gruffly, "What need have we for such infernal contraptions ?" ' Morris, however, did not give up. He decided to give his portable trans- mitter a thorough series of tests while the club was camping in the mountains, and thus it was that he carried his brain-child to the depot, along with his camping outfit. The pay train arrived and Morris, stowed away in the car next to the mail coach, was soon speeding towards his comrades. As the rails clicked merrily under the car wheels, he settled himself comfortably and mused. He would spend his time, while in the mountains, experimenting with his transmitter. If he suc- 46 5Al-I5 - ef,,,. Q .,,I -U - - ceeded in covering reasonable distances with its signals he would seek financial backing for obtaining a patent. The train, which had been speeding steadily along, was slowing down. Mor- ris heard the screech of brakes suddenly applied. There wasn't a station within IO miles. Something must be wrong! Morris got to his feet, and rushed towards the door, but before he reached it there came a crashing shock, so violent, that he was hurled to the floor, where he lay stunned. VVhen he regained consciousness Morris got unsteadily to his feet, staggered to the half-open door of the car and gazed without. He was horrified at what he saw. The engine was ditched. Half buried in earth and debris it was hissing frightfully as the water from the boilers drenched the smouldering coals in the firebox. The tracks ahead were torn into pieces and so twisted were the rails that Morris guessed correctly that they had been dynamited. Only by the greatest of miracles had the mailcar and the boxcars remained on the tracks. Adding to his amazement, Morris saw a man of dusky hue in the act of poking a revolver into the ribs of the chalk-faced mail clerk. Another man of unfavorable appearance was tying the arms and legs of the clerk while a third stranger was stooping over the figures of the dead engineer and unconscious fireman. The brakeman was lying, bound and helpless, at the foot of the embankment. The mail clerk was thrown down the grade and landed in an uncomfortable position beside him. Morris understood, it was a holdup. The bandits had ditched the train and were about to loot the mail car of its 350,000 in gold and currency. Morris thought quickly. Like a flash an idea came to him. He had not been discovered, why not send an S.O.S. call from his portable transmitter? BAC, the wireless plant of the aerial mail station, was situated not far from the Beverly depot. Perhaps the operator would hear the signals of distress and notify the railroad officials. The portable transmitter was quickly unpacked. The collapsible loop antenna was erected, and in a twinkling Morris was pounding the key as he had never pounded it before. "BAC-BAC-BAC. SOS--SOS. Send a posse. Three bandits looting mail car just north of Langshire curve." Time after time the spark spit forth the call for help. Time after time Morris sent forth signals of distress. He had no receiver with which to listen for an answering call and many were his fears that his signals would not be heard. Through a crack in the side of the car where he could see and not be seen, Morris noticed that the desperadoes were tossing bags of mail down the embank- ment and from the noise they were making he concluded that they were indus- triously pillaging the mail coach. The safe containing the money had not been blown. No doubt the bandits were experiencing difficulty in opening it, but then there was plenty of time. In this desolate place, far removed from human habit- ation, the robbers could make a big haul and a clean getaway. Once more Morris stole back to his transmitter and again sent out the signal: for help. VVould anyone be listening: if so, would his transmitter send far enough to be of any real value? Would help come in time? Morris musedg suppose his efforts were of no avail-better to lie low than to fight against such heavy odds. 47 GA!-I5 Qm, as 674 L - A 0 ' sin.. , - g ,, P 7 ' 1' I -3 - ,I W jnn1arT111 -Y L " "' me ' ME B-Q-O-Ml C-R-A-S-'HH Morris jumped to his feet. The bandits had blown the safe. The 350,000 was in their possession. Morris glanced at his watch: the robbery had taken an hour to complete. He felt weak and helpless. IIe had done his best and had failed. But what was that? Morris listened. His eyes sparkled and a radiant smile spread over his face. He heard the pufling of au approaching locomotiveg the posse was drawing up. As Morris looked cautiously from the door of the car he saw an engine crowded with armed meng but the bandits had seen too. Loaded heavily with loot the robbers were stumbling down the embankment towards their horses which were picketed in an oak grove near by. Shots were exchanged, the bandits reply- ing as they ran. The rifles of the posse spoke with accuracy. The desperadoes fought a losing battle. The 350,000 was saved. Morris scrambled from the car as members of the rescue party ran towards the wreck. The mail clerk and the brakeman were released and the injured fire- man was receiving attention. The president of the line was speaking excitedly and as Morris approached unnoticed he heard him inquire, "Where in thunderation did that wireless signal come from ?', Morris caught the president by the arm. "Maybe I can-" "jumping rattlesnakeslv interrupted the president. "Can it be possible that you saved the day with that infernal contraption you tried to peddle off on me? Speak up, young man, let's have itf' Morris did not speak. I-Ie modestly related all that had occurred and added finally, "I not only saved your money, but I proved that my railroad wireless is a great success." - "Right you are, sonf' said the president, as he placed his hand on Morris's shoulder. "I'll back you with the money for the patents and I want the first dozen transmitters that are turned out. 'My railroad canlt operate without them." 48 , fkll W, 67LG1aKl..gELJ d " 1 'su Q - 4+ .lmuu ' ' -' -1"'m" 0 P- L I S - A Q 1 - , H sf 'I lloyt Barnes XYilliam Rlackburn lfranklin lllake Yictor Carpenter Iforrcst Cobb Robert Coulter Dale Dias Russell Dias Paul Doner llowarcl llraving liugene Drury Yernon lluckwall joe Dustman Howard Fck Carl Etts Leo Farnam Robert lioltz Clifford Greulach Dwight Hart Russell Herring Harolrl Hester Lue Hofman .lohn Hoghe Harold Hott Russell Huffine Lawrence Ireland Thomas Jones Freshmen Lynn Kennedy Merle Kigtrins Archie King Paul Koogle john Leeson Lester Leisl , XValter McCollum Francis Monahan Eirwyn Morgan Lester Morris Luther Ogg Virgil Pomeroy John Rriflfly Graydon Rank Clarence Riggin Dale Ross Paul Sells Carl Sherburn lfranly Siple Rernarcl Smith James Smith John Smith VVm.

E were going to be Freshmen-what more could we want? In the Eighth 1 Grade that thought had gone through our minds, when we passed. Last summer we had anticipated the pleasure of coming to high school, but when the fateful morning of the first day of school arrived we felt de- cidedly small. VVith faltering footsteps we approached the Temple of Learning. Scared? VV-e-l-1, maybe we looked it, and felt itg but why admit it? We were sorely puzzled just where to put General Science so it wouldn't collide with Englishg and where was room 26 hiding, but our teachers soon helped us out and these difhcult matters were satisfactorily arranged, and gradually we became settled. Many of us had begun together in Junior High, but it was quite nice to form new acquaintances with the jones from 'Docia, and many others too. The next important question in our lnfantile Brains was how to elect class officers. but Mr. Karns came to our rescue and acted as "The Chair". Ruth Conn was elected president and a very worthy one she was. Victor Carpenter as vice- president. Secretary Carl Wertman and Harold Hester was elected to hold the great sum of cold cash. Naturally there must be a class party and, as it was near Hallowe'en, it was a masquerade. Everyone had an e'njoyable time, and we hope to have several more. Christmas vacation came, and we had a glorious time. This was balanced, however, by a terrible struggle through exams. Everyone recovered, however, and most of us arrived on our second semester work. Next, basketball teams were organized. On our boys' team were Russel Dias, Frank Siples, Leland Agler, Robert Fawcett and Ben Murphy. On the girls' team were Gladys jenkins, Mary Louise lreto'n, Vivian Hummerickhouse, Montez Rayer, Lorraine Cole and Helen Rilling. Several interclass games were played and the Freshmen were recognized as real athletes. Many other events led to the end of our Freshman year, and we all hope to successfully pass on to the Sophomore class. MARCIA E.

Scrawny Jones wanted it to ram today and spoil the game, but it didnlt. He's jealous of us athletic fellows because he weighs about Q61 ISO pounds-most of it crosswise-and so he can't do anything for the g QQ teams but yell. I took Mary Eastman over with me. We had a dandy time going over-we all piled in two cars. Coming home we didn't have any fun at all. We had two blow-outs and the roads were so bad, so we didn't get back till 10:00 p. m. It seems to me the Centertown girls are awful slow. I never noticed it till tonight. But while we were at Middletown we sure had a good time! just as I walked over to the pitchers' box I saw something bright lying in the dust. Vllhen I looked down I found it was a ring with a ruby in it. It just fit my little finger, so I wore it during the game. Our team need new uniforms something awful. My socks-what there was of them-wouldn't stay up and I could hear some of the Middleville sidelines laughing at them. Our sweaters are all holes, too, so I guess while I'm captain I'11 see about getting some new ones. I fanned out two of their fellows and was naturally feeling pretty good. But they put rne out before I reached first base, when we went in to bat. While I was walking back home past the "bleachers" someone said l was a good pitcher anyway. I looked up and saw the girl that said it. She looked funny at first, then laughed and nodded at me! Oh, boy! Some lookerl I fanned out three men in the next inning and from then on the score was on our side. I wonder what that girlls name is. April 20. Today we came out fifteen dollars to the good. Mary Eastman gave us the idea, and altho I didn't think it would work at first, we sure put it across. They just finished tearing down the old Thoreau High School building. Last summer Skinny Smith and I took some snaps of it. So the other night three or four of us fellows got together and printed 100 of them-postcard size. In the next two nights we finished 200 more. Then we got out and sold them all for five cents each. I think we have enough funds from last year to make the difference on new uniforms. April 29. Middleville played the return game here today. We beat them 6-5. Tell me we're not good players! And we looked swell in our new uniforms, too. Scrawny knows that snappy looking girl and he bet me 35.00 that I wouldn't be introduced to her if she came with the team. I won because at the end of the fifth inning Louise Willis brought her over and said she had wanted to meet me. Her name is Sue Reid.

VVe're getting to be awfully good friends. June 18. Sue and I walked nine miles today. Her cousin-Louise Willis--thinks I'm rushing her-but, Gee! Summer doesn't last a year. We came to a cool, shady place down by the creek and I asked her if it was true she had wanted to be introduced to me that day and she said yes. I told her I had something to tell her that night. She wanted to know what it was right away. She teased me a lot and pretty soon I told her that I wanted her to cut jim Martin and just go with nie. She said she would, but I was afraid she would forget, so I told her she'd better have something to make her remember. I didn't know just what until it struck me that the ring I had been wearing would do. I didn't tell her where I got it and she promised to wear it on the proper finger on her left hand. July 4. Mary Eastman had her hair up tonight at the dance for the first time. Oh, boy! Shes a better dancer than I ever thought she was. We're going to play te'nnis tomorrow morning over at her house. I guess Iill let by-gones be by-gones with Scrawny. He didn't mean to do me a good turn, but I guess he did. Here's what happened: Sue was just as nice as ever for the first few dances. I wore my first dress suit and danced four and a half out of five with her. The other half of the fifth wasn't danced-by us. At the beginning of the fifth Scrawny came over and stood -:lose to me talking to us and acting unusually friendly. Then we decided to dance that one instead of sit it out. When we were in the middle of the fioor everyone began to laugh. I looked all around and found that I was the joke. Sue looked surprised at first, then suddenly jerked away from me and walked off the fioor with her head in the air. Her face was as red as fire. Everyone started to roar then, and Scrawny grinned wickedly, and asked me who my tailor was. I turned around then and saw that he had pinned half my coat-tail almost as high as my shoulders. I was hot-believe me. I followed Sue out doors and then-say, that lecture she gave me was the worst that ever came my way. Said I had disgraced her and that she'd never speak to me again. Then she laughed and said she had enjoyed the summer immensely-lt was great fun to lead on little innocent seventeen-year-olds. She said she was eighteen QI thought she was only sixteenj and was engaged to a fellow in college. She said, lastly, that I couldn't have my ring back as it really belonged to her in the first place. She had lost it that day and recognized it when I gave it to her, but thought sheyd have some fun with me. Then she gave a haughty sniff and left me sitting there like a wet chicken. just then Mary came along and unpinned my "swallow-tail" and said they were serving and asked if I'd mind bringing something to her out there in the garden. What do you know about that? 54 MUSIC fs NV, 'W W Li? 5 7c5Al.l5Lj The Music Department l Chorus This department of the Van Wert High School is under the direction of Professor james H. jones and consists of the following organizations: l. The Choral Club. This club is open to all students. The course is for four years and two credits are given for the work. The purpose is to build voices, to foster a taste for good and wholesome music, to provide training for boys and girls who come to our school without previous instruction in music. and to give choral training to Freshmen. The club gives two public musicales each year. The first semester concert endeavors to give the result of choral training in three and four part singing: the second semester concert is the rendition of some standard operetta. An examination in general appreciation and observation con- cludes the year's work. Tl. Theory and Hawnozzy. This branch of the work is elective to Juniors and Seniors who are musically inclined, and who expect to follow music as a vocation. The study consists of the scale in the major and minor modes, triads and their inversions. ability to harmonize simple melodies, the analysis of common hymn tunes, and an appreciation of the beautiful in song.

'Some localities are beautiful because of their hills and mountains, some be- cause of rivers and lakes, and others because they are near the great ocean with its bays and rocky cliffs. But while Van Vtfert has none of these, Nature has been no less generous in her gifts. A fertile soil and a pleasant climate give us fields of golden grain and gardens of beautiful flowers. Van VVert is a city beautiful because it has fine homes, shady streets and yards and gardens adorned with the loveliest of flowers. You will find here the iris, peony, rose and gladiolus in greatest profusion and choicest varieties. You will find single gardens with hundreds of kinds of peonies and gladioli. One garden contains nearly a thousand different varieties of iris, the second largest collection in the United States. Several of our growers who are now in Europe will attend the flower show at Paris in June. Van Vlfert enthusiasts have selected their wonderful collections from the best in the world. A visit to these gardens is not only a revelation but an inspiration, and makes one realize that flowers are designed to delight and uplift the soul of man. The love of flowers indicates a refinement and an appreciation of the beau- tiful and is an index of character. The gift of flowers shows deep feeling and a desire to brighten the lives of others. Blessed is the one who gives and the one who receives these beautiful messe'ngers of hope and love. Take a Walk any summer day through the many gardens of this city, see the flowers and meet those who are finding health and happiness in growing them, and you too will become enthusiastic about the flowers in Van Wert.

CoAcH SMITH This is Coach Smith's second year as coach of the athletics in the Van Wert High School. His services have been highly appreciated by the high school, for he has put out several winning teams during the past two years. Much credit is given him for his ability along football, basketball and baseball lines. MANAGER SPEITH To Mr. Speith we must give the credit of making our sports financially successful. He has the interests of the players at heart and does all he can to give us good equipment, which goes a long ways toward putting out a win- ning team.

"Cliff'y had a peculiar hobby of playing most any position on the team with equal skill. This season he played a hard, consistent game at center, never giving up until the whistle blew. NEIL GAMBLE rrfjaultv PAUL CONLEY 'iPaul" played tackle and was the hardest player on the team. He had a little bad luck at the beginning of the season, but he could not be scared out. This is his last year. lrjxrefilu "Neil" played at end and proved his "Tarzan" BEN MURPI-XY ability early in the season. He was a star at breaking up end runs and re- ceiving passes. He has one more year to play for V. W. H. S. NORMAN CONN "Norm" "Norm" played halfback and was one "Tarzan,' was the biggest man on the team and was always doing his best to make the other fellow feel sick. Tarzan played tackle and will be remembered by the way he took care of Big Bill from Decatur. of the mainstays of the team. He was a triple man, being able to kick, pass and make First downs with the best of them. He played his best game against Hicksville, where it seemed as if he was the only one that could make gains. Norm has two more years. PAUL JONES "Cupid" "Cupid" started the season at quarter- back. He was a star at picking the weak spots of the opposing team. Later in the season he was shifted to end.

But due to an injury to his knee at Lima was unable to Finish the season. He played his best game at Lima. ARTHUR LYBARGER "Sheda,' This was "Sheda's" first lettered year at football.

CH,xRLEs JONES "Charlie" "Charlie" played end, but due to inju- ries did not get to play many games. Charlie was good at breaking up end ru'ns and also could be counted on to catch a pass if it came near him. This is Charlie's last year. FORREST MCGURK "Marc" "Mac" played tackle and was a player that could be relied on to do his best. He was one of the scrappiest men on the team. He sometimes got things mixed with the Klu Klux Klan. RAY ROLLER JOHN ECKENSTEIN "Ecky" Captain-elect for the season of 'nine- teen-twenty-two and will surely lead his team to victory next year.

T T' t Football Review lk 5395 OOTBALL started with the best prospects for a team that V. VV. H.. S. has. had since nineteen-sixteen. Six lettered men reported for practice, lg 5011! which started on the first day .of school, September 12. The players were kept busy chasing the elus1ve pigskin for three weeks. Van Wert was up against a hard schedule, but competition is what makes the game ,, . ' interesting. Lintermoot was unable to play after the Lima Central game as he quit school. Angevine and Charlie jones received injuries which prevented them from playing. On account of these troubles Van Wert had to keep changing her line-up, putting in less experienced players. For this reason the team was unable to put its full strength into the field. The season started with the first game played at Delphos. Delphos had a big team, but was unable to stop Van Wert's end runs. Lintermoot, Conn and Angevine were the individual stars in the game. Van VVert came out with the long end of the score, which was 47 to 0. On October 1 Lima Central came over with her bunch of baby elephants. Lima won by the score of I3 to 0. Lima made her first score from a fumble in the Erst half. Devoe was the star for Lima, being able to make gains through Van Wert's line nearly every time he carried the ball. A game with Decatur was scheduled for October 7, but due to a wet field we did not play them. October I5 we went to Lima to meet South High. They had an evenly bal- anced team. Van Wert fought every minute and made some good gains by end runs and forward passes, but South High won by the score of 28 to 0. October 21 the big team from Greenville came to see the sights of Van Wert. lt must have given them abundance of pep to see what a nice little town we have tor they had the long end of the score, which was 20 to O. On October 27 Dectaur came over expecting to win, but soon discovered her mistake. The game was marked by hard tackling and blocking and was made difficult by water and mud, but Van Wert showed her staying powers and won by the score of 2 to 0. November 4 we went to the town north of us that they call Hicksville. In a hard game Van Wert was beaten, although the score was in her favor at the end of the first half. The final score was 21 to 7. November I2 the Delphos team came over loaded for trouble, but we were able to tame them down with the ice water we had ready for them. The game was slow. due to the condition of the field. The first half ended with the score in Van Wert's favor 7 to 0. In the last half Van Wert opened up and put over three more touchdowns. The final score was 27 to 0 in Van VVert's favor. A On November 18 we were scheduled to play Bluffton, but on account of a wet field we had to cancel the game. November 24, Thanksgiving Day, Van Wert High School played the Alumni. With stars like Brumback, Roger Jones and Burrel the Alumni were able to win by the score of 33 to o. The game was played on a wet field and was slowed up on account of mud and water, the game proving to be interesting to the spectators, who had not seen some of the old stars in action for some time. 68 746Al-.150 A 6 . In sul -' , A - ' au..Li3 'l ull The Men That Help Make the Team The first team has to ha'nd it to the scrubs for their ability to stand the hard knocks and all that goes to make the life of a scrub miserable. The scrubs have one thing to look forward to, if they are lucky enough to be Freshmen, Sopho- mores or juniorsg that is, they have a chance next year to make the first team. So here's to the scrubs, a bunch of good fellows who did their best to make our team a success! The ones who should have honorable mention are the follow- ing: Robert Gunn, Robert Hawkins, John Cramer, Dan Calahan, Luther Carlo, Dan Couts, Fat Krieder and Lester Leist. I nterclass Games Two interclass games were played this year. Interclass games should be encouraged more than they are. It brings out boys who otherwise would not play football. By encouraging football in this way the high school will become more interested in the game. The first interclass game was that of Seniors and Freshmen against the Soph- omores and juniors. The Seniors and Freshmen won by two touchdowns, a sur- prise to the whole high school. The other game, Sophomores vs. Freshmen, ended in a nothing to nothing score. This game was marked by hard playing, both sides trying their best to put over the winning touchdown. -'-e6 Baseball Re'-view VVe cannot say too much for baseball, for it certainly is a line sport. Van Wert has put out a winning team for the last two years, having lost but three games out of sixteen played. NVith Captain Charlie Jones to take care of the pitching, Thomas to do the catching, Conn to stop the fast ones through short and Painter to put them out at Hrst, Coach Smith has the prospects of putting out a team that will not lose a game.

Basket Ball Review OR thehseason of '21 and '22 Coach Smith started out with two old players reporting, Painter and Jones. 'lhe team looked forward to a very suc- llj will cessful season as there were five teams all striving for a position on the 4 Varsity. On December 16-Our once confident tossers of Rockford jour- ' neyed here with a change at heart, returning as expected with the small end of the score of 36 to 18. On December 21-Ridge felt the blow dealt by the Scarlet and Greys, with a score of 60 to 25. On January 6-Once more successful our undefeatable team contested with Paulding on their local floor. Remarkable skill was characteristic on the part of both teams, the game ending with Paulding bearing the burden, 33 to 21. The followi'ng week, january 13, Paulding again met Van VVert. Although the game was hard fought, the Paulding boys were unsuccessful, due to the excel- lent playing of Paul Jones and Cliff Painter, the score being 42 to 18. On january 20 the spirited Van Wert team journeyed to Bryan, having planned on much opposition We were prepared. This was probably the hardest fought game of the season, the first half ending IO to I2 favoring Van Wert. The V an Wert team rallied in the second half, easily defeating the local Bryan team by a score of 33 to II. On january 27 Van Wert was defeated by Lima South at Lima. Roughness was the characteristic of the gameg although we lost the game by a score of 23-36, in our hearts we had won and a secret revenge was Planned. On February 3 Van Wert met Defiance here, having not recovered from the defeat of the week previous. The Van Wert team fell with a score of 22-26 in favor of the previous visitors. But failures are stepping stones to success. Van Wert, having learned the lesson, were cured of our confidence. The following week We played Bluffton here, this time cautiously. Stimulated by the fear of defeat, our boys clearly out- classed them, winning by a grand total of 23-14. On February I7 the Scarlet and Greys left for Bluffton. Here they met with much opposition, the Bluffton being very determined to avenge the defeat of the week past. The first half ended with a tie, the second half was very questionable, first swaying from one side to the other. Each minute was growing longer, at five minutes to play the whistle blew for time out. Van Wert led by one point. Playing five more minutes, Painter copped the game by hooking one into the basket, The final score was 24-21. Un February 22 we again met Ridge, this time winning over them with a score of 23 to 4. On February 24 was the annual tournament at Delaware, the Van VVert team losing to Millersburg 18 to 21. Now was the chance to avenge, as we met Lima South in contest here, and since revenge is sweet the big Scarlet and Grey team went into the game with heart and soul. The game was very interesting throughout, much skilled basket shooting being exhibited. The Lima team went home downhearted, losing to Van 70 745Al-.ISU if 1 Wert with a score of 39-27. The following day we met the Convoy team, defeat- ing them with an easy score-29 to 22. Although having played two hard fought games in one week the big team journeyed over to Defiance March 7 to have a come-back at her for the defeat of a few weeks previous. Probably because of the two previous games, the team was not i'n as good condition as usual, after having played two over-time periods, we lost by the small margin of 21 to 23. Having finished the games scheduled we added one more game to our list. Nfarch IO Monroe, Ind., came to Van Wert, This team had Won 30 out of 34 games The game was hard fought, the first half ending II to I2 in their favor. llaving a wonderful comeback in the second half, they won by the score of 23-30, winning i'n the last five minutes. Thus the Big Scarlet and Grey team ended a .--uccessful basketball season, winning IO games out of the total I5 games scheduled.

Loomis 5. Act lll-Almost evening. Ting, the best quarterback Yale ever produced, is spending his vacation as bellboy at the Halcyon House, a hotel in the Catskill Mountains. In the absence of the proprietor Ting and Sam, the negro porter, take full charge of the place. There arrive at this hotel William Wiiikler, his wealthy sister-in-law. Aunt jane, and his niece Jane. Winkler is trying to evade Bob Baxter, Janes lover, for, according to the will of her father, unless she marries Benjamin More within a year her inheritance together with VVinkler's goes to charity. Aunty Jane offers Vllinkler 310,000 to get her a husband. XVinkler resolves to get 320.000 and sends to the matrimonial agency for a husband for Aunt jane, and telegraphs for Benjamin More. Aunt jane has two aversions-whiskey and actresses-Winkler loves both, and so the trouble begins. There appears on the scene .Janes lover, Bob llaxter, also of the Yale football team. He tries to win VVinkler's consent to his marriage to .lane by producing evidence of XVinkler's connection with Kitty, a famous actress starring on Broad- way. liut suddenly VVinkler turns the tables and llob finds himself spurned even by Jane. Ilob's 'next step is to disguise himself as Kitty and thus causes XVinkler end- less trouble. Soon the real Kitty appears and much confusion results. Benjamin More, a nervous, lovesick man, arrives and is mistaken for the man from the matrimonial agency and Aunty Janes prospective husband. These mistaken ide'ntities cause a complication of affairs which is uniquely worked out by the discoveryof a flaw in the will of Jane's father. The will mentions the marriage of ,lane but not his daughter Jane. S0 VVin- kler and .lane decide that if More marries Aunt Jane the will can still be carried out' to the letter and thus provide the unfortunate spinster with a husband. A clergyman whom Sam had waiting in the kitchen all day is summoned and a wedding for six is planned. The play was one of the most delightful ever given by any Senior class. wig-e'3 f ,:s-ago 3 04?

One of our most interesting meetings, however, was held Qctober twenty- fourth when a "reel fer showv style show was presented exhibiting the proper and improper dress for school, street, travel, and parties on living models. Miss Jones talked to us on good taste and comfort in dress, while we made little style booklets entitled "As Others See Us". Another meeting featured a regular kid party. After playing kid games everyone was given ice cream cones and lolly-pops. All of these jolly times at the Y. W. were made possible by an excellent executive power' which consisted of Mrs. Collins and Miss Carmody as leaders: Eleanor Evans, president: who was assisted by Clara Kissel, vice-president: Mary Chryst, treasurerg Virginia Campbell, secretaryg and the chairmen of the various committees. Besides certain donations and charity baskets we decided to put on a play, "Broken China", a beautiful little Chinese love story. The play was presented November twenty-eighth at the Y. W. C. A. The proceeds of the play went to Worlcl Fellowship mission purposes. ' Qui' hope is that this club will grow as fast, in future years, as in the two years that it has been organized. 81 GA!-I3 g ' .tum Questionnaire Q sEN1oRs pf 'esm,.M3y Y' URING this year of IQ22, the Senior Class has had some astound- 52iQQ.R ing questions brought before them. Because it is impossible for , if 1 o'ne body to answer these important questions it was necessary to submit them to the student body. These are familiarly known as a questionnaire. There was' close competition in all classes, and the judges found it exceedingly difficult to decide to whom .L e' the honors should gog but it was finally determined that in answer to the first and second questions-"The most popular and respected pupil in the Senior Class-Eleanor Evans should take the "berries", Fred Rank, though we appreciate his affectionate attentions, was declared the "class nuisance". There was close competition in the fourth and fifth questions, "VVho are the peppiest boy and girl in high school Fi' However, Harriet Wise and Bob Rucklos were honored. We as a class have decided that Mr. Rowland has made the most interesting talks during the school year of 1922: and from the Senior Class-Jim Smith was voted high school comedian. "They" have always said that the high school has no spirit and through this questionnaire the Seniors vote to "install a still and brew some spirits"!l! How about it? That ought to improve the high school spirit. Since we spend so much time on the campus we think it best to keep the teachers off and erect a statue of Venus de Milo to beautify it. There were many various answers to the question, "What is the height of your attainment in high school F" The answer was "to know as much when we graduate as when we started". Hot Dog!! "VVhat is your aim in going to high school ?" Yea, verily, verily-the answer was this. "To have my bust in the place of Shakespeare's. Many suggestions were offered for the betterme'nt of high school: but the ones which were most worthy of consideration were: private Excalibur office: dance hall: and a chorus girl faculty. Surely these should be acted upon. Taking the Junior, Sophomore and Freshmen classes collectively, these are the results. faasfh g JUNIORS Robert Rucklos was voted the most popular pupil, Mary Chryst the most respected and Dwight Tones the biggest nuisance. The high school in general voted Harriet Wise a'nd Robert Rucklos the peppiest girl and bov in high school and William Evans the funniest. Mr. E. T. Antrim the best liked Assembly speaker. They suggested class fights to produce more high school spirit. and that to put a fence around the campus to keep the prisoners in would beautifv it. The height of their attainment and aim in goi'ng to high school was to be on the Prom Committee and fall in love with a pretty girl. Last but not least, moving pictures, Hy swatters and wheeled chairs were suggested as improvements for the high school. ' 82 7cCALl3Lj A SOP-HOMORES Norman Conn the most popular, Ruth Bonnewitz the most respected, and William Evans the biggest nuisance. Hon. G. M. Saltzgaber their favorite assembly speaker. Folding beds in the Study Room and to have the sidewalks removed from the campus would produce more high school spirit and make the campus more beautiful. The height of attainment and aim in going to high school is to become Secretary of Senior Class and to participate in athletics. Roman baths and dances were suggested to better the high school. FRESHMEN Ruth Conn and Marcella Dickinson the most popular and respected and john Smith the biggest nuisance. Rev. Daniel McGurk their favorite assembly speaker. They think milk bottles on each desk would improve the high school spirit. They suggest keeping the homely birds off to beautify the campus. Their height of attainment and aim are to be on the Excalibur Staff, and to have a date with a pretty girl. - Funny papers, toys, a jazz band, will better the high school. They also want earmuffs distributed before the Friday morning speakers begin. Lyceum C ourse The tenth year of the Lyceum Course proved very successful. The course is under the direction of Mr. Bowland and through his efforts the best music, lec- tures and entertainments are obtained. As the price of each ticket was only 31.50 the course was very popular. FINANCIAL STATEMENT RECEIPTS Balance from last year ...........................

Then new members from the junior Class were voted on and a very successful initiation was held. several begging for mercy. From the Junior Class two officers were elected, Leo Wertz, vice-president, and Robert Rucklos, secretary. Un December 28, the Hi-Y gave a minstrel which proved very successful. The proceeds were given toward a pledge made by the club to further Ili-Y work in India. The Club enjoyed many fine speakers throughout the year and also noon lunches held at the school building every month. So the year has closed and we hope that the Hi-Y may prosper and grow ewwwem- The Penny Fair The annual Penny Fair was held before the holidays at the high school building, and proved very successful. The admission fee was not the same for all. The larger your neck the more you paid, for it was a penny for every inch. All kinds of eats were sold with something new this year, Aunt Jemima Pancakes, with real Aunt Jemima to bake them. . Some of the attractions were: The Post Office, Three XXX's, See and Hear Our President, For Men Only, For NVo1nen Only, Peep Show, The Cigarette Fiend. French Dolls, Picture Show, Magician.

The guests were seated at small tables which were placed around the walls. The space in the center was left for dancing. Suspended from the center of the ceiling was a large white star. Radiating from this were stream- ers of beautiful twisted crepe paper, which at one end rose in a large cone, at the mouth of which was a vari-colored spotlight which shone on the dancers. The stage was banked with ferns and palms. The program for the evening consisted of two parts, the first as follows: VVelcome address, response, vocal duet, and playlet entitled "A Crumpled Rose Leaf" The second part of the program was given to dancing, the music furnished by the Einkhouse Orchestra. Refreshments were served during the intermission. At this time "The Letter Dance" and "Butterfly Dance" were given. Calendar ff SEPT. 12-We're all back for our last round in high school.
