Senior Class H istory
l'lCC'l'A'l'fJRS on the hrst morning of school, September, 1919,
could not fail to notice the ill-assorted group of youngsters who
v fairly fiew along the way to school, seemingly so anxious to absorb
the knowledge that would enable them to be the kings and queens
of the future dynasties.
Vife freshmen heard the audible wonderings of those spectators
and unanimously decided to improve with age and make our
oud of us. Our ambitions were never expressed. but actions are said to
er than words.
rst sign of our budding intelligence was marked. XYe chose. from the
wd, Harold Bowers to be our leader in the Crusade. Always fair in love
won our confidence, and with our undivided strength we made ourselves
bility to achieve success was made public when we first offered entertain-
ir schoolmates in the form of a chapel program. Our efforts were fully
appreciated by the good natured audience and our career began.
In order to become better acquainted, and to relieve the monotonous routine of
study, we were allowed several parties. These strengthened our defense against the
onslaught of the upper classmen, for, in spite of our capability of controlling affairs,
we had to how to their authority.
In the spring came the unhappy ending of our first battle. VVe were all re-
quested to be vaccinated for smallpox or withdraw from school for the remaining
1Ve were not discouraged by our first attempt and September. 1020, found us
in the field of combat.
t Rucklos was chosen by popular vote to succeed Harold Bowers. Our first
hardship in the second Crusade was the newly organized literary society. It was
whole-heartedly depreciated until, unexpectedly, we found that our talents lay along
dramatic lines. To prove this statement to the public we presented the play, "The
Heavenly Twins." 11'e celebrated this victory by having a hayrack party.
Of sophomores little is expected, so. after exploding this bomb in the peaceful
districts of Y, XV. H. we were content to spend the remaining time in study and
seeking amusement. VVe ended the year with a picnic to Celina. NVill we ever
Enrolled in 1921 as juniors, we did not wish to bask in the glory of the radiant
past. but set out to win again. Robert Rucklos was in command.

Athletics proved a pathway to stardom for many. Football was all we could
have hoped for. Remember what we did to Delphos?
The girls had their first chance to shine. A high school basket ball team was
organized and we won the majority of the games.
On the Eve of Halloween we were entertained royally by the Class of 222.
Winter came, and we sought to make ourselves known once more. Small but
mighty, the junior class once and for all established itself in the V. W. H. S. March
6, l92Z, we presented the first class play, 'tRuth In a Rush." It was an overwhelming
success, and we hope the juniors in future years willlfollow in the footsteps.
'We began to make plans for the junior Prom early and it kept us busy for a long
time. VVe hope the Seniors enjoyed it as much as we did.
XVithout a doubt we all felt a pang of regret to start to school again in '22, know-
ing that early in T23 our school-days would be over, but we made the most of our time
under the direction of Robert Rucklos and his compatriots, Katherine Kyle, Harold
Bowers and Louise Giffin.
VVe began events with one of our old time hayrack parties, followed by a party
for the juniors on Hallowelen,
On Friday, january 12, the Excalibur staff gave to the high school its explan-
ation of the work done by the editors and various departments. A great deal of
interest was aroused and we gained many pledges for lixcaliburs in this manner.
The playlet, HMoonshine." was the next item of interest offered by the Senior
Class. It was a very delightful program.
Examinations quieted all disturbances for a time, but then came the hardest task
Our future orators entered the oratorical contest.
Gur future stage artists appeared in the Senior Class Play April second and
It was especially troublesome getting to school on time to avoid staying in the
detention room and to safely bestow our possessions in the new lockers.
The final exams ended our worries. Our air of importance increased and we
looked forward to the week of entertainment before us.
The Baccalaureate Sermon made us think more seriously for our future.
VVe will always remember the Commencement exercises, for we received our
diplomas and felt like sailors lost at sea.
Parties and picnics tended to lessen the pain of parting. As we wandered home
on the last night from the Farewell Party we saw, at last, the Cruel VVorld before
us. But we are ever anxious to succeed and welcome smilingly the duties that
Thus end the last Crusades.

I QQ, ' l HE DAY of judgment was drawing near and Peter, before opening
the pearly gates of heaven, was reading from his mighty Book of Life the
records of earthly beings and choosing from the goodly number his angel
L, il1 Death, while waiting to be sent forth to reap his harvest of human
lives. was standing by his side offering advice and suggestions.
Seated one exening alone by my fireside, I was interrupted in my
perusal of the evening paper by a noise at the window. Without stopping to knock
but raising the sash and stepping into the room, Death confronted me. Startled, yet
amused. and thinking myself the object of a joke, I inquired his errand. In a
manner mysterious and ghostly, he raised his hand and recited, "Death summons
every man to come and give an account of his life to St. Peterf' So saying he took
my hand and, unable to resist, I followed him into the darkness.
VVe had travelled some distance when Death suddenly became confidential and
informed me of the reason that was bringing me hither. This was the busy season
in St. l'eter's profession and the task was very great. In deciding for and against
the many victims of judgment day, he had taken them year by year and arrived at
the last but not least-Twenty-three. It presented such a problem that he felt the
need of an assistant. As I was experienced as secretary of the class, I willingly
gave up my worldly ambitions and relished the idea of seeking this unusual adven-
I was greeted gruffly by St. Peter and snatching the chance of making a good
impression. I set to work immediately.
At the head of the list was Robert Rucklos, our worthy president. His name
may now be found in Ohio City's Hall of Fame. He is thus honored for his bravery
in capturing three notorious men, safecrackers by profession, Edgar jones, Dolph
Shock, and Glenn Angevine. They were successful for a time because they used
their heads in the business. Outwitted by Robert, the story of their capture will
long be remembered.
Travelling along the same road we find in the city of Mercer an imposing
edifice which lends charm to the surroundings. Mary Graven, as business manager
and clerk, explains the purpose of this factory. Styles change, as we all know,
and to prevent the ladies from bobbing their tresses to furnish material for hair nets,

pretty wedding is described. Rev. Frick binds in the holy bonds of matrimony Ward

Glover and VVanda Leiter. The bride was charmingly dressed in a gown of white
satin and wore a veil of real lace, both showing the bride's accomplishments, for
it was her hands that fashioned them. Annabelle, the flower girl, robed in pale
blue georgette, wore a picture hat trimmed with real roses and carried a bouquet
of the same-a delicate pink. Marshall McCoy was the ring bearer. An appro-
priate outcome of this exquisitely appointed affair-Rev. Frick weds the maid of
his heart, Fern Fugate.
Along a lonely wayside path, a scene not so pleasant comes to my mind as I

Of Leo Werts, much is said of his reputation as a judge. The case that made
him famous was that of Mary XValborn against Carlton VValborn-charges jealousy
and plea for divorce. Witnesses were their intimate friends, Mr. and Mrs. Curly
Bowers, nee Ruth Showalter, and Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd VVilliams, nee Pearl Terry,
who sanctioned accusations. The wise judge sentenced them to another year of
married life, promising separation at the termination of that time if the case was
the same. Mary and Carleton now live happily together, and the judge, single
blessedness for him. The court stenographer and judge's private secretary is the

has been successful.

When I had finished my task, I wondered if there would be further discussion
with St. Peter. I was not disappointed. As Death once more took my hand to
lead me I knew not where, St. Peter approached and handed me a slip of paper.
He watched me with a grave face as I read the words which appointed me director
of entertainments in Heaven. Death allowed me no time to thank St. Peter, but I
looked my delight to him as he stood till the gates closed after me.

You Can 't Always Tell
,J C, HEN Robert LeRoy Dyer entered Grantville High School he expected to
become, immediately, one of the leaders. Coming from the larger school
giglipi of the nearby city where he was only one among many he expected to be
greeted with all deference and hoped they would appreciate the fact that
'f1w"'f he had stood first in his class the year before. Brains? it was unanimously
agreed among his classmates that he was the only one who could 'tsee
through" solid geometry and he was famous for his sight translations of
Virgil. Manners? he put all the other fellows in the Shade when it came to that.
Looks? the tirst morning he walked into the Study Room at Grantville the girls
and boys with one accord mentally registered him as an Appollo and a 'tfool collar-
ad," respectively, Really for the first day as the new Senior he was at least to
himself, in a satisfactory situation, .
It was when Miss jones, the English teacher, called on him the next day that
the girls' opinion tottered and the boys-such as it was-was strengthened. Miss
Jones very innocently addressed him as "Robert," which seemed to be quite an
insult to him as he, in a very condescending tone informed her of the fact that he
preferred to be called Robert LeRoy as Robert was such a common name. and then
proceeded to make a brilliant recitation on Milton's minor poems. If he had glanced
at any of his fellow students as he resumed his seat he might have noticed that
the girls had apparently brushed all the expression from their faces into their
handkerchiefs and that the boys were exchanging disgusted glances and ttI-told-
It was not long, however, before he discovered the general attitude toward
him. He began to realize how lasting first impressions are. He did his best to
rise in the opinions of his classmates, joined a gym class at the "Y," went out for
football practice, joined the dramatic club of the High School, and when asked once
to Hgive us a little tune" at one of the class parties, obligingly played Schubert's
HSerenade" and Handel's "Funeral March." He even joined the tire department
to which nearly all the boys belonged and from which he received the sum of one
dollar per month and the privilege of being dismissed from school to help light
fires whenever they got beyond the control of the regular firemen. However, there
were never any fires in Grantville. The only time the motor-truck was used was
when it made practice runs to different parts of the town.
No one knows how long Robert LeRoy's position would have remained un-
changed if, on one cold February day, the fire alarm had not sounded and the
magnificent truck had not immediately afterwards rushed down the street, past the

school building. It happened that it was during chapel exercises, when an influential
citizen of the town was giving a long, rambling talk on "Bad Habits-NVhere They
Lead." He was quite well-to-do and the school needed a new piano, so the teachers
and pupils remained attentively 'ZUlllf6lVl7Lg the speaker and more attentively listening
to the distant screech of the siren and the roar of the motor truck. Judging from
the shouting and rushing automobiles there was really a fire this time, Mr. Hughes
was nearing' the climax of the career of an habitual smoker when a man rushed into
the assembly hall and shouted that all hands were needed for the police were busy
pursuing the men who had robbed and tired the insurance building and the one
next to it was also speedily burning.
There followed a scene oft general confusion during which Robert LeRoy was
hurried with the other fellows into a waiting automobile and rushed to the burning
buildings. Robert LeRoy at last came to himself and realized that he was on the
roof of a building where there was no fire at all, holding desperately to a pick-axe.
He was just about to cross to the roof of the next building where the flames were
spreading rapidly when he noticed a thin curl of smoke coming from one corner of
the roof where he was. He shouted for the others to help him but they were too
much occupied where they were so he ran to it alone and began to chop.
A cloud of smoke rushed up into his face when he finally broke through the
ceiling of the room below. Tying a handkerchief over his nose and mouth, he let
himself down into the room. Vague ideas of daringly rescuing a fainting steno-
grapher and then being triumphantly carried through the streets as a hero, urged
After the first rush of smoke the air cleared somewhat, and he made a round
of what he discovered was the private office of Mr. Hughes. As he reached one
corner of the room he stopped, hardly able to believe his eyes. A large safe stood
open and empty and on the floor beside it was an acetylene torch. As he stooped
to examine it another puff of smoke filled the room, making it impossible to see, and
he felt in vain for the torch. This time the air did not clear as before. He dropped
on his knees and started in the direction where he thought there was a Window.
In doing so, his hand touched a tin box. He moved on, however, but was agaili
stopped, arrested by a voice coming from what he knew must be the radio set
located by the window. Evidently the story was being broadcasted for the benefit
of the newspapers of the surrounding towns, also which was much more to the point,
to give the description to the police and the officials who might be on the look-out
for the bandits whom a frightened stenographer had described in her vivid account
of the exciting affair, but what caught his attention in the instant that he listened
was the description of a tin box containing papers of more value than even that of
the sum of money taken. Turning back he felt for and found the box that he
had just touched. At the same moment he heard a crackling noise, and raising his

head he discovered a faint red glow through the smoke. He realized the size of
the glow was increasing, and that he could not hope to escape through the hole by
which he had entered. Guided by the voice he made his way to the window. At
last he reached it and threw it open. In the crowd below he could see Mr. Hughes
talking excitedly and pointing toward the window, where Robert LeRoy stood. He
shouted to the people and waved the box back and forth to attract their attention.
Already the firemen had placed a ladder to the window. As he descended, he real-
ized how nearly suffocated he had been, after the Contact with the clear air.
Mr. Hughes rushed up to him, put a steadying arm across Robert LeRoy's
shoulder, seized the box, examined the contents, turned a beaming face to the crowd
of assembled students and tire tighters, and told them that the valuable papers had
been recovered. He again turned to the boy and asked him what he could give
him as a reward. Robert LeRoy thought fast and remembering the High Schools
unanimous and often expressed wish for a new piano, he made his choice. Mr.
Hughes gladly consented and turning to the boys on the fire brigade announced
to them Robert LeRoy's choice and also invited them to a banquet that evening.
There was a cry of "Speech! Speechlu but before he could collect his senses
Robert LeRoy found himself hoisted to the shoulders of his classmates and borne
off to the "Y" for a general clean-up, to the tune of tWVhat's the matter with Bob
Dyer? He's all right!" '

Junior Class History
HE WARM summer days were softly slipping away, giving place to the
mild autumn breezes, and all nature was clad in her most gaudy gown when
pation toward safely reaching the next rung on the ladder of knowledge.
This year of breathless excitement, worry, and pleasure, ended all too
soon, but when a year later we found ourselves within the solemn portals
this history began. We came from our pleasant homes with eager antici-

of our modern castle, not with the awkward mien and embarrassed appearance of a
freshman, but with a lofty carriage, acquired from our previous years! success, we
with a "Rah-rah Twenty-Four," entered the Sophomore Class, one hundred strong.
This battle with geometry, English and history, together with other subjects, was
not so difficult as we had feared, and when after the hnal exams, victory reigned,
we proclaimed ourselves Juniors.
The first official proceeding of the class was to organize and select officers. The
selection proved to be a wise one with Dan Calihan as president, Clifford Gamble,
vice president, Myrdyth Hartzell, secretary, and Luther Carlo, treasurer. Our
class colors, "Kelly Green and White," were retained.
In order to make the acquaintance of our new classmates, a hay-rack party to
a woods east of the city proved successful and was indeed a merry event.
But perhaps the most delightful occasion of the year was when the Seniors
entertained the juniors at an Armistice party. Games, dancing, and refreshments
were features of the evening. Everyone gave evidence of having a most enjoyable
Athletics! Are we not proud of our gallant athletes who proved themselves
so worthy of their letters which they received after fighting so bravely for them?
What a foolish question! Of course we are, and we feel sure that their victories
will even be more numerous next year.
When the midwinter examinations were announced much undue solicitude and
anxiety was feltdny gf-eryone, but they came and the memory of them faded away as
rapidly as does the radiant light of a falling meteor, leaving us none the worse for
our experience. '
Immediately following the exams, preparation was made for a junior Class play.
Everyone was enthusiastic and eager to make it the best class play ever put on in
high school. The play chosen was HA Full House," which was successfully given at
the Strand Theatre, February 26, before a "full housef, Miss Riggs and Mr, Saver
proved very efficient directors.
At present, preparations are progressing toward the annual party given by the
juniors in honor of the Seniors. The junior Prom, as it has been described, is indeed
the most beautiful, splendid, entertaining, and sumptuous event of the year.
The class of '24 has always been distinguished for its perse' erence, and for the
spirit of determination which has always marked its progress. One short term
remains to complete our school life, and now, as we look forth upon the future that
awaits us, let us ever be mindful of our motto, "Eyre Qmzm Vfli67k',J, and may it be as
a guiding spirit to hold us together as a solid phalanx united for the honor and glory
of our class. HEI.EN SPAYD, '24,

Sophomore Class H istory
IC POOR little Freshmen started to High School. It was lots of fun altho
iQ we were closely watched by the upper classes who seemed to notice our
j 5 :Qu blunders with much joy Qevery new class in high school is expected to make
mistakes and I a1n sure we came up to all expectationsj.
W Of course we had to have a class meeting and elect officers. The results
ggi- of our first election were: president, Ruth Conng vice-president, Victor Car-
penter: secretary, Carl VVertman, and treasurer, Harold Hester.
We had several class parties which we all enjoyed, and also organized our
basketball teams. Our freshman year seemed to ily and the first thing we knew we
weren't freshmen at all. We were sophomores.
Summer passed as swiftly as it had come and we soon found ourselves entering
on our second year of high school.
You know they say the Sophomores are not quite so interesting, because the
freshman greenness has gone and the smartness of the juniors has not yet arrived, but
I think we filled our place quite well. W
W'e felt rather important not to be sitting in rows A, B, C, etc, and could with
the upper classes watch the freshmen. We were glad to sit nearer the middle of the
room and feel as if we knew something of high school, the life and what was required
This year we met most of our freshman friends again, but we really seemed much
older, and just to prove it, take for example the boys, long trousers.
Early in the year we elected our class officers, which were as follows: Harold
Hester, presidentg Lester Smith, vice-presidentg Virginia Stewart, secretary, and
Vernon Duckwall, treasurer.
Our first party was held in the gym in November and all had an enjoyable time.
Our next event was a hayrack party and We went to the woods. Everyone had a good
time at this party in spite of two great misfortunes. In the first place there wasn't
enough to eat and in the second it rained on the way home.
From parties we turned toward basketball. We were represented on the boys'
Varsity team by Leland Agler, Robert Fawcett, and Frank Siplesg on the girls' by
Montez Rayer. Our boys were defeated by the seniors and thus were kept from
winning the championship. However, we hope to win next year.

Marcia Purmort and Mary Louise Ireton were the newspaper reporters in our
class. Each Week they saw that we, at least some of us, were mentioned in the
t'Scarlet and Grey."
Next came Christmas vacation and trailing close behind came exams. Misfor-
tunes never come singly and we had to hand in book reports the same month.
Many other things too numerous to mention occurred in our sophomore year and
at the end of the year came again exams, and I was forced to believe that Uldlllffla'
The great ambition of the sophomores seemed to be to graduate. VVe sadly
realized that just half of our high school life was over and yet we look eagerly toward
the junior year where we expect many events of importance to occur.

Here are some girls, a rather intelligent group of-iiappers, I believe they call

our runners in times gone by. To be sure, the little girl whose name is Kitty plays

many fears and misgivings that we Freshies, one hundred and nfty strong,

many days had elapsed we proceeded to organize, with james Rumble as president,

The School Coward?

"Sure! VVouldnt miss it for anything."
.ii This brief conversation passed between two pupils of the Shelbington
high school was overheard by Robert Boyd, known as the school coward and
lim:-J sissy. Robert was a poor boy, the sole support of his invalid mother, a hard
worker, and very studious. "Maybe I could let the lessons go tonight," he
thought. "But possibly if I went the atmosphere would be too chilly. VVonder why
the fellows can't like me? Oh, I almost forgot there's firewood to get tonight. No,

sneered Elizabeth. Mary smiled and they drifted into more pleasing conversation.
That night the trees saw a beautiful sight. It was a whole sled full of boys and
girls who were filling the air with their gay, laughing, young voices. The lively
breeze made their cheeks glow and seemed to give them spirit. They were taking
the river road and the partly frozen stream with its gurgle of delight when it man-
aged to free itself from the ice, added to the merriment.
Suddenly as if struck by an idea, one of the boys leaped from the sled and
gathered a handful of snow. He packed it hard and aimed at a group of laughing
girls. Evidently his aim was not correct for with a hum it struck one of the horses
on the Hank with terrific force.
The horse reared, then plunged straight for the river. -The girls screamed and
turned pale. The boys were petrified with horror. A few moments more and the
Whole party would be buried in the icy water. Hold! A dark figure hung at the

Everyone leaped to the ground to find their rescuer. Back up the road a little
way lay a form, a tall, dark form. A second more and it was obscured from View
by a group of excited boys and girls. "iVho is it? Is he hurt? Is he unconscious ?"
was all that could be heard for a while, when finally there arose a surprised exclama-
tion, "Robert Boyd !"
Nobody knew how he was got into the sled, but not many moments had elapsed
before they found themselves at the doctor's, the broken leg set, and everything going
smoothly. The doctor looked thoughtfully at the unconscious boy a moment and
inquired. "VVho is the lad? NVhat is he like ?"
One of the chaperones, a sweet-faced little teacher whom they all loved, answered
him: "VVe can hardly understand the boy. He seems so much above other boys. He
has higher ideals, deeper thought and cleaner morals. just what he was doing out
a night like this is more than I know."
"Boyd V' the doctor fairly roared.
"Y-y-yes," she stammered, "that is it."
He went over to the place where the boy lay and now and then he was heard to
mumble something, but his words were indistinct.
The hurt boy soon regained consciousness and the doctor sent everyone home,

stating that he would find help himself. He sent company and word of the accident
to Robert's mother, putting it mildly lest the truth be injurious to her poor health.
Early next morning when Robert's leg would not let him sleep, the doctor talked
long with him on such subjects as interest boys, finding out in the meantime that
which he wanted to know. In the afternoon he said, "Robert, I will be gone for a
while, but you will have company," and his eyes danced. And company there surely
was, for later in the evening in marched his class.
"How did it happen you were so far from home, Robert ?" they asked.
"I had just been to the sawmill for some firewood and thought I would go the
river way to pick up material for a theme and I heard you coming."
'tYou couldn't see us fed mercilessly to the river, could you, Robert?" asked
"l'ooh!" he teased, and there was a twinkle in his eye. 'AI thought if you were
all drowned I would have to do all the reciting at school, and I wasn't fond of the
thought." They all laughed at that-no, not all, one did not. It was Elizabeth.
"Hin," she scoffed, "he thinks he's smart because he did something unusual and
the class considers him a hero. But I'll venture to say that if he had known what
the outcome would have been he wouldn't even have thought of doing such a thing."
All who had heard were turning shocked faces toward her when the door opened
and in ran Doctor Randall, breathless and rosy.
"Told you you would have company, didn't I?"
"Yes, and you never said anything truer,'l was the laughing reply.
"W'ell, folks, I have a pleasant surprise for all of you, Robert included," Randall
exclaimed. "Bet you canlt guess itf'
"No,l' they all agreed, they cou1dn't.
"Well, then, I'll tell you. Robertls mother is my long lost sister and Robert
my new found nephew." '
There was a silence so intense it hurt. Then someone started the high school yell
just for Robert. Then there was one for Doctor Randall.
The doctor felt a lump come into his throat as he looked into the face before him,
iilled with surprise and mingled with awe and happiness, "But my mother ?'l he
finally found voice to say. t'Have you heard how she feels today? Did news of my
accident hurt her ?"
t'She is better now, Bobby, my boy," the doctor answered, brokenly. "So much
better I believe she can be healed."
Robert struggled in vain to hide his tears of joy, but his were not the only ones
to be hid.
USome people sure don't know how to take good fortune,', sneered Elizabeth.
"Look at the cry baby, and a boy at that, Now, Mary Myres, you can't say I never
told you he was of no good. To cry, and before his class, too! Ugh l"
Mary turned away and sighed, "Oh, how happy the world would be if we could
broaden ourselves enough to understand one another."

"flat well yum' part,
Theft' all lfze honor liar."-POPE.
O-OPERATION is the keystone to success in any of the many, many phases
mf life. lt is therefore plain that it is a big factor in our high school
activities. It goes far in building up a high school spirit which is in reality
the backbone of the institution. NVhat, then, is high school spirit? A
possible definition is that it is the loyal support of every individual in every
high school activity. 'l'his deiinition furnishes a tangible goal toward
which to Work.
The ways of developing school spirit are many. It is built up by participation in
athletics, literary and musical events and the other varied activities of the year. Some
can help in organizing events, and boost in ticket sales, but everyone can do his share
by attending all the games and entertainments. VVe feel that a great improvement
has been made in the school spirit of Van VVert high school this year, but have you
"acted well your part" this year? Ask yourself this question.
But the various activities must not overshadow the real purpose for which we are
coming to high school. The high school teaches knowledge of theories and practices,
but furthermore it builds character. Here. in the true purpose of the school, real
co-operation is most needed.
And one learns a valuable lesson in giving this kind of co-operation. Co-opera-
tion between the faculty and student body leads to more efficient and more interesting
classes. Co-operation of class with class is also indispensable. Each part separate
in itself forms a necessary link in the chain.
Every educational institution is a valuable asset to a community and very
logically. the better the institution the more valuable it is. Thus as citizens of this
community we must feel the responsibility of making our high school as valuable as
possible. XVith this ideal in mind, every one of us can work toward putting Van Wert
high school on the map for our own good and the good of the community. "Act well
your part" and make the history of Yan VVert high school a history of high ideals
and noble achievements.

The Community Clearing House
What is the Community Clearing House?
It is an organization to bring into closer relationship the many activities of Van
Wert, namely, business, civic, social, and religious.
Haven't we enough organizations already in Van VVert?
We probably have. But this is not just another organization or there would be
no reason for its existence. The chief aim of this organization is to help correlate
the group life of the community.
When did the Clearing House originate?
During the summer of 1922. On july 19, following three meetings of Yan VVert
citizens, all largely attended, a representative company assembled at an organization
meeting. At this meeting the Community Clearing House came into existence
through the adoption of a constitution, the election of IE. I. Antrim as president,
C. B. Pollock, vice-president, and Miss Hazel Gleason, secretary. The following
executive committee was named: E. I. Antrim, H. M. Gee, C. A. L. Purmort, D. J.
Gunsett, C. G. Daughters, B. L. Good, L. C. Morgan, AI. XV. Longwell, and C. S.
What are the duties of the executive committee?
To direct in a general way the work of the Community Clearing House.
What was the first step taken by the executive committee?
The careful preparation of a budget for the Clearing House for the first year
and the planning of a campaign of education which should culminate in a financial
drive, October 18, 1922.
What was the outcome of the Iinancial drive?
In nine hours' time on the day of the drive, one hundred solicitors secured pledges
to take care of the work of the Clearing House for one year.
VVhat was the next step of the executive committee?
To make provision for clearing house quarters, employ an office force, and start
the work of the organization.
Has all this been done?
Very satisfactory quarters were promptly secured. C. E. Riddel, Mrs. F. W.
Purmort. and Miss Thelma Cole were chosen respectively executive secretary, relief
and welfare secretary, and stenographer, and a good beginning has been made in
the Clearing House program of the year.
Who will assist the Clearing House employees to realize the purposes of the
All of us. Every one of the 8.100 inhabitants of Van Wert can be of service.
Our 3180 earners, 2,000 home makers, 2,500 children and young people and 500 aged
persons and invalids can, through friendliness, co-operation and participation in com-
munity affairs, make Van Wert an ideal place in which to live, own a home and rear

a family. VVill not this end be promoted if we make the Clearing House the center
around which the whole life of the community revolves?
How can all Yan Wert people help in a definite Way?
There are seven major committees: Membership, Publicity, Business and Pro-
fessional Service, Municipal Service, Social Service, Out-of-Town Relations, and
Statistical. Note how inclusive these committees are! Besides, there are many sub-
committees. lf the time ever comes when all the sub-committees are 100W etlicient,
there will be hundreds of persons doing Yan XVert an important ser.ice. XVhen the
committee program is fully developed there should not be a single person omitted
who is able and willing to do his part.
XYhat place do the schools occupy in the Clearing House program?
A very important one. President Grant once said the schools were the hope of
the nation. The stability of America today, in the midst of an unstable world, is
largely due to the training for democracy of our public schools. This being true and
recognized, the ambition of a community like Yan XVert to promote the interests of
its schools in every possible way. is understood. The Clearing House desires to place
unreservedly its resources at the disposal of our public schools for the sake of a more
perfect co-operation in community development. for the sake of a better Yan XYert.
VVhat is the one essential to our realizing our line purposes?
XVorking harmoniously together. Let us give a concrete case to show what can
be done where there is co-operation. Some years ago thousands of our soldier boys
were on the Mexican border. -Xt a certain place a fine Y. M. C. A. building had been
erected for the convenience of the soldiers. But when things had become settled it
was found that the building was a mile from the center of activities and almost useless
where it was. The question arose, how to move it to a better place? There was no
money to pay for tearing it down and rebuilding it at another location. Finally,
some ingenious fellow hit upon the idea of carrying it to a new site. The idea seem-
ing practical, arrangements were made for several hundred men to lift and carry
the building. with the result that it was raised from the ground by several hundred
men working as one man, and borne easily and quickly to the new site. If Van XVert
people, 8,100 strong, emulate the example of these soldier boys, Van Wert has a bright
future. with greater prosperity and happiness in prospect. The Community Clearing
House of Van XVert will certainly not have been organized in vain if it shall prove
to be of service in developing in our community the spirit of co-operation exemplified
by our soldier boys on the Mexican border.

Prize High School Song for 1923
If you ever went to Van Wfert Hi,
You can sing, "How I love her," till you die.
If you failed or passed in the Yan XVert Hi,
You can sing 'tHow I loved her days gone by."
Each boy and girl who has gone here,
All say she is most clear.
We all work and play
Thru' the live long day.
As we sing this, our little high school lay:
Van Wert High School,
How we love you,
For your treasures,
And your pleasuresg
VVe'l1 stand by you
Thru, the ages,
While we sing our high school lay.
Come and join us boys and girls at Van VVert Hig
If you like to play after work each clay,
Link your arm with the arm of Van NVert Hi,
VVe have our good times every day,
In study, work, and playg
VVe put first things first, we put last things last,
just a rule quite efficient in the past.

SYNOPSIS Ulf SCENES
Act. 1. Drawing-room of the Dangertield mansion.
Act. II. The kitchen-afternoon-twt1 days later.
Act. IH. The dining-room-just before dinner on the same day.
VVith father and mother abroad fighting for father's health, and with no prospects
of money, the Dangeriield children are forced to rent the old family mansion in
Virginia and become servants in their once prosperous home, Charley as the horse boy,
1'aul the butler. Bess the maid, and Ulivia the cook. Burton Crane, young' New York
millionaire, arrives with his attorney, Solon Tucker, the aristocratic Mrs. Faulkner,
and her daughter, Cora. Then the fun commences.
Mrs. Faulkner tries to put the staff of servants through their paces and leaves
the house at a hot pace herself. The cook is uncommonly beautiful and the scene of
action shifts to the kitchen. XVeeks. the agent of the family, kisses the cook and
leaves the kitchen by express. Tucker tries the same and succeeds in kissing the
stove. Lefferts, of poetic soul, follows suit, but his enraptured soul is forced to take
refuge with Mandy, the old negro mammy, in the cupboard.
The excitement ran too high for Crane: he dismisses guest and servants-all but
the cook. But the excitement proves too much for himg he too succumbs to the kitchen
and asks Olivia to "come out of the kitchen" and become his cook for life.
Music for the between-acts entertainment was as follows:
1. Duet, Misses Lillian and Thelma jones.
2. Bass Solo, Mr. li. C. Humphreys.
3. Ladies' Quartet, Mesdames Miller English and True lfelger, and Misses
Mae Wassenberg and Stella Germann.
4. Duet, Miss Hazel Gleason and Mr. Robert Moore.
The rendition of "Peaceful Yalleyn by Phidelah Rice, a Boston playreader,
marked the close of a successful Lyceum season.
Mr. Bowland, who is in charge of the course, each year attempts to procure the
best possible talent for our entertainment.
Among the numbers on next year's course are: the Vivian Players, who will
present "Six Cylinder Love"g the Fenwick-Newell Concert Company, composed of a
tenor, soprano, violinist, and pianist: Mr. Edwin VVhitney, playreaderg the High
School number, assisted by Sam Platt jones, a humorist. For the last number, it is
planned to have a lecture by some man in public life upon the problems of the day.

formerly, including a Question Box Meeting. an ldeal Girl Meeting, a Christmas Kid
Party. and a Colonial Tea. The XVorld Fellowship Meeting. which is always full of
interest, gave us ideas of the customs, costumes and girls of Russia, France, Spain and
Japan, and a pageant, 'fPrayers of Girls of the XVorld," was given. During Lent
a series of Bible meetings was carried on. Lnder the leadership of Miss Schriner, we
gained much help from everyday topics of great importance.
The whole thought of the work of the girls is summed up in their purpose:

The klunior Hi-Y was reorganized at the beginning of this school year. The
president, Harold Hester. and the secretary, Vernon Duckwall, were elected last year
by the outgoing members of the club. Ii. G. Thatcher was the adviser and helper.
while Robert 'l'. Moore succeeded john XV. Smith in the position of club leader.
W'ith the valuable aid of Mr. Thatcher the club secured small triangular shaped
pins, red and white in color, for the members,

A series of meetings was held during the year with talks by Mr. Thatcher and
the discussion of the club's business.
Although the junior Hi-Y was not as big a success as it will be in later years,
we sincerely believe that, once out of its infancy, the club will prove a valuable asset
to the school.
The junior-Senior l'rom was held in the gymnasium of the Central Building
on the evening of May 24, 1922.
The gymnasium was xery artistically decorated a la Dutch. The color scheme
was lavender, gold and white, the junior and senior class colors. Strands of crepe
paper were draped from the four corners of the room to its center, where a large
windmill stood. All around the walls were small latticed, garden-like inclosures,
covered on the outside with foliage. ln each of these inclosures was a small table
and chairs for the guests. At the west or farther end of the room was a platform
upon which could be seen the various pieces of furniture required for the playlet
which was to be given later in the evening.
Looking down upon the fast gathering crowd of young people, it was a beautiful
sight. The girls were dressed in frocks of almost every color and description, while
the 'tfellows" wore suits of light, dark, or mixed materials. It was truly youth in
its gayest mood.
Shortly after the majority of the classmen had assembled, the program began.
The first number was the welcome address and the response, given by the presidents
of the respective classes. Immediately following a clever little comedy entitled "The
Queen of Hearts" was given. A vocal duet was pleasingly rendered, after which
we were permitted to gain a few glimpses of some of the seniors through the
just at this time came the part of the enening which everyone secretly antici-
pates-the lunch. It was indeed delicious and dainty, with its long Dutch names, and
its quaint little Dutch maidens with their baskets Iilled with jumbo peanuts, as favors.
VVhile we were enjoying this "repast," julia Morgan, dressed in the frock of a
little Dutch girl, danced for us.
'The second part of the program was given over to dancing and we danced until
"two o'clock in the morning." -
All in all, the Prom proved a great success and we can say Kwith all the pre-
ceding and succeeding classesh that our Prom was indeed the best one ever given.
Penny F air
"Cin we go. too ?" chimed two small voices as mother told Helen that she might
attend the Penny Fair. Mother demurred at first but when jimmy, aged nine, and
Mary, eleven, promised faithfully to save their pennies for the Penny lfair to be

they could go.

A Brief Resume of the Football Season
On the afternoon of the first day of school, a new coach and about forty stocky
youngsters were gathered in the high school dressing room to start football for 1923
on its way.
Most of the forty were inexperienced boys, who never before had donned a
football uniform. Besides this, Mr. Moore, the coach, was entirely new to the squad.
It took quite a while for the boys to obtain football experience, and assimilate the
ideas of the new coach. So half of the season was gone before we had a good team
whipped into shape.
It isn't how you begin a thing that counts-it is the way you end it. Although
our boys lost most of the games at the first of the season, you must take into con-
sideration that they were mainly a green bunch of fellows, with only a few seasoned
veterans from the former year. But when the team had had time to get experience,
and to act out the teachings of the coach, we found that our local eleven wasn't so
bad after all. 'l'hey took the last three games in great style, beating the Alumni
Cwho administered such a drubbing to last year's elevenj 20 to 0.
We are well pleased with Coach Moore. XVe know that given a little time, he
can turn out a strong grid team. VVe sincerely hope that he will be with us next
year, for we are assured that he will make it a successful one in football.

Captain this year and captain-elect
for next year, we can say that "l+lcky"
is one of the mainstays of the team. He
played a hard game all year at fullback.
He is also our star punter. If you did
not see him tear through the line when
we played against Wlapakoneta, you
missed something. XVe are certain that
he will Captain a victorious team next
This is I"red's Iirst year at football.
He held down the right tackle position
and was very good at tearing holes in
the opponentls line, He was also a good
defensive man., This is his last year.
If '1Spigot" was the baby of the team
in years, he wasn't in size, and earned
his letter this year along with the rest
of iem. He was One of the best trainers
on the team and Could always be counted
on to do his part. He played left tackle.
By the Way! This youngster is only a
Sophomore. watch him go!
Connie played halfback this season.
He could Carry the ball through the line
as well as anyone and he was our drop-
kicker and forward passer. He still has
another year to play for V. YV. H. S.
At the start of the season 'tBOb" was
given the quarterbaek's job, but later
on he was put at center. Although light
he played a good game and was espe-
cially good On the defensive. He will
be with us again next year.

At the first of the year Sheda played
halfback, but later he was shifted to the

creditably. He was a quick thinker and
rarely made a mistake. He will again

This is "Sipe's" second year on the
gridiron. At the beginning of the sea-

Moore changed him to halfback. He
was a good line plunger and a fast run-

Y. XV. H. S.
This was Cramer's first lettered year.
and we are sorry that it shall also be
his last, for he graduates this spring.
He was the largest man on the team
and he surely made Big Bill of Decatur
look sick. He played at guard and held
down his position very creditably.
This was "lCd's" first year of football
at Yan XVert Hi. He played at left
guard all season and was one of the

his best game against Defiance. He
graduates this spring.
"Boom" played at end. He was es-

could nab the pigskin out of the air
as if he had been born to do that sort
of thing. He was quick on his feet and
not many men with the ball got past
him without getting tackled. He also
will be on the team next year.

end. He was good at catching passes
and made many gains and several touch-
downs from forward passes this year.

Basket Ball Review
The first Monday e ening after our final football game, about thirty fellows
reported in the gym for their initial basket ball practice. Among those were three
veterans of former years-Eckenstein, Lybarger and Conn. The other twenty-seven
were Cgreenb inexperienced youngsters who were beginning to try their basket
Coach Moore had only nine days to pick a team and send it through its paces
before the opening game with Ridge, December 13. The boys practiced hard but
they were easily defeated 21 to 3 by the Ridge team, which had been preparing for
this contest ever since October.
After another week's practice, our boys began to show some basket ball form.
On December 22 the big Lima South five invaded Van XVert territory, expecting an
easy victory, but they were sent home, much to their surprise and the joy of Van
XVert rooters, on the short end of a 27 to 13 score.
On january 2 Ridge came here to play a return game. The visiting team
was highly confident, but the locals again stepped out and knocked them off for a
17 to 9 count.
Ridge challenged Yan XVert to a third game on a neutral floor. The challenge
was accepted and in a hard fought game, played at the York High School on
january 10. Ridge luckily won by a two point margin, 9 to 7.
The following Friday, january 12, the locals journeyed to Lima to play South
High School. Our boys were hampered by a small, strange floor which was not
regulation in any way, and they fell before Lima's onslaught for a 20 to 6 count.
On january 19 the local crew met Bryan here. The game was close and hotly
contested, but Bryan came out the winner 23 to 20.
The local tive journeyed to Paulding on january 26. Our boys must have liked
the place, for they came home victors, 28 to 24, after playing an overtime game.
On February 2 the strong Ada team xisited Van VVert. Although our lads put
up a good fight they were defeated 20 to 13.
Pauling took another crack at Van lfVert on February 9. Our team left no doubt
in their opponents' minds as to which was the superior, for Paulding was beaten
decisively, 17 to 10.
The following Friday, February 16, the fast Monroe, Indiana, team came to
Van Wert. Fawcett and Agler, two of our regular players, were out of the game
on account of sickness. This enabled Monroe to beat us by the one-sided score
of 38 to 7.
On the twenty-third of February the team went to Ada. Although the locals
held their opponents to the lowest score that Ada has made this year, they were
unable to win. The score was 16 to 8.
On March 2 the locals journeyed up to Defiance to enter in the district tourna-
ment. In the first game Ottawa was easily defeated, 21 to 9. The next day, however,
the locals fell before the strong Defiance team for a 10 to 3 count.
