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 re today. 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 few weeks. 1Ve were not discouraged by our first attempt and September. 1020, found us in the field of combat. Rober 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 forget it? 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. 13 I gig ta i S Qs S sX K X gt gsm K X NN gt W xxxxy :A ww sl is .Xxx If f , hwix f' 'X 4 -a ...- ff f .f V-wyw' fav is-.if .f f -ffaw M fe M ' --L-aye!! ft' f" A an 6 of I 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 of all-graduation. Our future orators entered the oratorical contest. Gur future stage artists appeared in the Senior Class Play April second and third. 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 await us. Thus end the last Crusades. LOUISE GIFFIN, '23. 14 ,A ffag .V 7' If 5 lk I ",4'71'6-QMZZZ. N X X Y XY X x M frW ,220 fs? fur QM 3.

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- ture, 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, Rhea VVade and Eva Parker secure the finest of frog hairs for the purpose. An event of interest and one all had been expecting is here mentioned. A pretty wedding is described. Rev. Frick binds in the holy bonds of matrimony Ward 31 5 1 Ms 9 l'-VF Qi, Q Wfffii Zi!

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 read, Spinsters, Dasher, Long, Kyle, Wise, and Chryst. Many years they lived in isolated bliss. They offer a home for friendless men and whisper low "it might have been." An Institution of Knowledge, established by Christine Rayer will long be remem- bered as being beneficial to our city. Requirements for popularity are the most important subjects upon which the pupils are instructed. Calisthenics, or How to Grow Thin. taught by Nellie Kirkland, whose motto is "practice what you preach." Women's wiles are perfected by Josephine Ireton and her able assistant, Marie Coil. A course in letter writing, chiefly expressions of sentiment, is taught by Dorothy Runion. Mil-ze Deal offers a special course to men on HI-Iow to Tame NVild Wimmenfl Lessons in etiquette, necessary for admittance to Society, Gordon Perry teaches us how to take a highball gracefully. 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 world's champion speed typist, jack Farman. One of our more fortunate classmates, Leo Hamman, wealthy and a man of leisure, spends most of his time shooting rabbits in the bulrushes. Olwen Hughes, fortunate person, collects tolls from all pedestrians as they cross the canal bridge in Delphos. In the Marsh Foundation we rind our more practical friends, leading a life of usefulness. Marcile McDonald, a very competent physical director, earns her daily bread by exercising the little orphans. Many useful things are taught the inmates. Elizabeth Klein is the teacher of domestic arts, though occasionally, ro- mance weaves itself into her dream and the topics for study change.

In a faraway city, sitting before a large desk, we find Don Stewart, now editor of a great newspaper. At this interview we see Nerma Uncapher, his favorite reporter, but that is not the question of the moment. However, in the one last long look at this pair there is a smile on each face, and without doubt the interview has been successful. There has been an addition to Main Street in the past few years. Leonard Ladd has opened a new garage for sick automobiles and motorcycles. W'e read the sign hanging above his head, "Forgive us our Trespassesf' as we watch him remove a part from the engine of an automobile. And too, we read the sign Hoffman and Smith, Photographers. It hangs before the door of Jimmy Riley's former Fish Market. Van Wert mourns Frieda VVoodruff. She no longer serves us soda but has gone forth into the cruel world to read 1nen's futures from their palms. Frieda! will I ever be a director? And will Harold Bowers succeed as a comedian? Edna Bindewald, our golden haired Lucie, danced her way through life until charmed by the thoughts of a future with john Cramer, she becomes a model house- wife. And now Fred Feber, pining for johnls company, walks along the streets of Lima greeting all the bobbed haired girls with an absent-minded smile. Irene and Myrl, since giving up basket ball, have purchased a beauty parlor. They invent new beauty hints that may be read in the Toledo News Bee. Lucille Busch succeeded Miss Stevens as Mr. Sullivan's secretary and she spends the summer with Elva Chilcote in Alaska. 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. 33 .fmfA-A-X35 QQMKYQ fi fl? fl 4 - fLfa.M Jw X ff ' Tim X I ' X .

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- you-so" smiles. 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 35 N fa Y Y N Q 8' Q XX XX Q N W s R A fff f f MW-5' 4l Q4 Q2 0' ff X 2 at G", ' . 1-. fwrfa 7 -g 'f vv'9"g"v 'WTI li 'lfam' NE ! f 5.4 g Wfggr lj., pl!

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 him on. 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 36 XE R is Q X s R 9 3 J SL, in 5 I N ll 5X K X RX N A . X 5.

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?

This year of breathless excitement, worry, and pleasure, ended all too soon, but when a year later we found ourselves within the solemn portals 95 T21 this history began. We came from our pleasant homes with eager antici- fisfil .f 5 5 x x 1 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 time. 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.

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 of us. 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. 48 ll f 'f . , w..... .-L-Z,7j,Mig,,.f5z,g,,a Aj an W aj Marcia Purmort and Mary Louise Ireton were the newspaper reporters in our class.

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' flzgilf' 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.

However, it is a i 9 blessed relief not to have to face the mob. My beloved countrymen will never know the agony I have endured from day to day, facing this crowd of grinning, gum-chewing hoodlums who are pleased to call themselves students.

He, slim and tall and ardent, she with soulful eyes and a beautiful voice, also a name that rhymes with fairy. That lad, who is mostly composed of legs, is now swinging down the aisles apparently trying to see which leg he can throw the farthest without letting go of it. Here are some girls, a rather intelligent group of-iiappers, I believe they call themselves. Such clothes as they wear! Their skirts resemble the tunics worn by our runners in times gone by. To be sure, the little girl whose name is Kitty plays that game they call basketball. The girl with the short, dark hair, her name is Sary, or something similar, is a very nice. bright, popular girl, but she, like the others. is in love. they say, with a chap whose name comes from the land where the shamrocks grow. My word, what a racket! If I only had hands to cover 1ny ears. There is no reason to be alarmed, it is only those wretched boys. Two of these dress alike and act alike, yet are not relatedg then with the addition of that other creature the effect is appalling. upon one of a poetical nature such as mine. But after all they may out- grow it. Close behind comes Eloise Griffith. She is a very proper young person who never makes herself seem unnecessary.

Alas, the gra' e principal is pushing some funny buttons and everyone seems to be jumping around and slamming desk lids.

However, these fears soon left us and we were able to stand the H411 good natured jokes of the juniors and seniors.

NAOMI L. ROBERTS, '26. The School Coward? EY, JANETTRI Bob-sled party tonight! Going ?" 5 ? , . . . , "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, Robert Boyd, there is no bob-sled party for youf' He quickened his steps at the thought. Across the street was a group of girls discussing the event, when one of them caught sight of Robert. "Oh, girls," she exclaimed gleefully, Hthere is that Robert Boyd. Isn't he a scream! Look at him walk! You would think his house was on firef, "Yes," chimecl in another, "we don't have to count on buying refreshments for the whole class. I know he'll turn up missing," "But, girls, think," said another, "He has to support his mother, and you all know he's the best boy student we have. I think it's unjust to talk that way." "Oh, I see thru' it now, Maryf! drawled the first girl. "Robert isnlt such a bad looking boy to you, is he Fl' "W'hy, Elizabeth, how you talk!

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 bridle, but the horses, mad with pain and fright, scarcely slackened their pace. The dark figure had disappeared, but the horses stood qui.ering with their forefeet in the water. 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." "Robert Boyd." "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. b The hurt boy soon regained consciousness and the doctor sent everyone home, 53 .I S ks X N R is R -5 9 N K Q R S X XKXXN X Wx R X af K X s X 5 X K x N x X S N , ' f 'Vilma at G' " '-a. , ' " " f 4 " 'V 7 'rf' " ' YW f", ' , , t .' 3, We Vff A 4 1 ff f fy 41 M l -ii-,ai f ff Jfdfff I 1 f X " 1-is-L !,7f,':,+'.!, ,- .' , , .Z 7" ff Z5 . 4 ef' 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 Mary. "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."

W 4,1 'tw 'av C0-operation "flat well yum' part, Theft' all lfze honor liar."-POPE. O-OPERATION is the keystone to success in any of the many, many phases 4 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. 56 .lo', '45, 'x 1, 7fQ7v'gv.'yp,f Z - - ,M f -A f Mfffi ff wx. .

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. F ergus. 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 organization? 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 61 M r r M . -Ji-'- -41-Aid. .

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 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.

ZZ 01 C4 M f The Music Department The Music Department of the Yan lVert High School is under the direction of Professor james H. jones. The chorus is, of course, the largest musical organization. This year it is one of the biggest and best we have ever had. livery year it furnishes one of the Lyceum numbers. From it. fifty of the best voices are chosen to represent our high school at the Interseholastic Music Contest. The chorus, at various times, furnishes music for the chapel programs. The harmony and orchestra classes are two other branches of the work. These classes, as the chorus, are open to all students. The orchestra, too, furnishes music for the chapel programs. April, 1923, will mark the third Eistedclfod for VVest Central Ohio. This is one of the biggest annual events in music's domain. For the past two years, Yan XVert has won the pennant-in 1921 at Lima, and 1922 at Findlay. This year the lflisteddfod will be held at Van Wert. VVe are looking forward to it with great anticipation for we are entering most of the numbers offered for competition, and are hoping to Win high honors and another pennant.

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. El Lyceum Course 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. 71 wi.

'l'he club has finished a successful year under the direction of Miss Carmody, Mrs. Collins. and the following olticers: president. Mary Chrystg vice- president. 'lack lfarmang secretary. Marcella Dickinson. and treasurer. lirina Gun- sette. The activities of the Y-Ili were numerous: among them the benetit movie, "Little Lord lfauntleroyf' the Faster market. and an assembly program. This year's programs were worked out in a slightly different manner than 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: Y-ield to Christian idealsg W'-in other girls to its membership: C-reate a spirit of true fellowship and responsibility among high school girlsg .4-ct willingly. Rirru llosxrwlrz. Junior Hi-Y 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, 73 A, . ,, a 0- M X0' 1. W' 'Wt ffe 7 V V V0 V ! V9 iw W ,E ,v -f"'m+ fQ,irasQ.aM14-lah ZAA AZ ai 252 0 if 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 Prom 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 'fliulogramsf' 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 given by the members of the Class of '22 of the Van VVert High School, she told them they could go. Bright and early on Friday evening, December S, '22, they scampered into the 74 1' xv 'f V 'fe fe W ' Li 0 l f .

'l'hey debated at great length whether they should spend their remaining pennies to see "l+'or Men Only" tor, as it was for Nlary. "l"or lYomen Only"J or whether they should buy a sandwich and some soup. Of course they decided in favor of the latter as little kiddies always do. and after that, they were ready for the big play in the study hall "XVhat Can XYe Do VVith Aunt Sally ?" Then it was that two tired. but happy youngsters. trudged home behind sister Helen 'n her "fella" and they agreecl that they had had the "bestest" time ever. lx' M gw zwl ' x Vu... .

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. 80 - c , , X , cy s X -," I Ai V i A , -r Q yf5 H,xizoi.iv l3owRRs "Curly" Assistant Cheer Leader.

EDWIN llAKE This was "lCd's" first year of football at Yan XVert Hi. He played at left guard all season and was one of the best trainers on the team. He played his best game against Defiance. He graduates this spring. ROBERT GUNN "Boom" played at end. He was es- pecially good on the defensive and he 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. lXVEIL QQAMBLE Neil always could be found at left end. He was good at catching passes and made many gains and several touch- downs from forward passes this year. This is his last year to play for his high school. W' jj 6 y f A 1 X 3.141 N150 Q Q Q Q11 I!

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 ball wings. 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. S4 F . X FAQ y ll abt ' Mft n Aff aaa, ff pf f'fZ,a7 fix 1 f I 121 al f.

XX'henever he layed he was alwa 's in P , 5 the thick of things. and we can say that he had a good eye for the basket. Say, he is only a sophomore. XVatch him pilot next year's team to victory. Romziu' GUNN "Boom" played forward and was go- ing good until the doctor unfortunately discovered that he had a bad heart. That ended basket ball for him this year, but he had played enough to win a let- ter. VVe hope that he will be able to try for the team next season. Roismu' FAWCETT At the tip off "Spicket" played cen- ter, but after that he changed places with Eckenstein at guard. He dis- played much ability at this position and should prove a valuable asset to the next year's team. He is only a sopho- more this year. Keep your eye on him. W f 'M XXXXX X ' ' "!'04 ' ' fav?
