How hard it was to part From mother dear and home. It was not easy for the boy To stay inside and learng His toys and playthings were his joy, For these he still did yearn. But soon he found that it was fun, To be together here With other boys to play and run, And then he lost all fear. Indeed, he soon became so bold As to annoy his class, And teacher had to watch and scold For fear he would not pass. And so we see with great surprise Some boys at hrst are shy, But after they have grown in size They rank as rascals high.

Georgia Heist, Jeanette Conn, julia Blake LIFE IS TOO SHORT What's the use to worry, You haven't long to stay, Why not take things easy As you pass along I.ife's way? 'Twill do no good to worry If things are going wrongg You may as well be pleasant- Meet reverses with a smile and song. There's none of us that's perfect, There's few of us that stay And never stray or wander From the straight or narrow way. So when you start to hammer Some poor person gone astray, 'Twill do no harm to pause and think You may lose your grip some day. What's the use to kick one Who's just about to fall? If you do not care to help him, Don't mention him at all. You'll find if you take notice That what I say is trueg While there may be faults in others There's a flaw or two in you.

'27, '18 ' A EXCAICIFUD Sveniur Gllazz igiatnrg Slory of flat' Slerfzffr Green Sboofs QLnst Installmentj Springtime-and the slender green shoots which first peeped through the surface of a most cultivated soil on September 14, 1926, have blossomed! The gardeners are satished with their work and now these blossomed plants may be transplanted into the garden of the world to make it more beautiful and fruitful. In the center of our garden the first year stood the King, Dan Helman, with his at- tendants, Floyd Geary and Martha Humphreys, who remained throughout the season to guide and help the weak shoots to stay alive. In this garden the little shoots turned to different things. Those who chose to be seen on the Honor Roll were regular attendants through that season: Ruby Endsley, Celia Evans, Vera Kesler, Ruth McDonald, Iva Chilcote, Geraldine Clifton, Annabel Dannison, Norma Draving, Marcella Douglas, Evadne Norris, Mary Spayd, Marjorie Steward, Irene Johnston, Reinhold Hoffman, Paul Fleming, Weikert Hartzell, and Paul Wyandt. Some of the little green shoots chose athletics: Jeanette Conn, Martha Humphreys, Betty Stetler, Georgia Heist, Gene Gilli- land, and Bob Gribler. Those who chose dramatics: Celia Evans and Dan Helman. Some were musical and played in the orchestra and many lifted their voices in song falthough not greatly appreciated by the upptr classmenj. Some enjoyed the days so much that they remained for an extra forty-five minutes in Room ZS!!! Everybody has to have a rest and we took one for three months. When again wb showed our reads we noticed around us about 150 very little shoots, a replica of ourselves a year before. At last! we could now give to someone else those words that a beloved teacher gave to us: "Freshmen should be seen and not heard." Tbn-fy-i-igbf EXCALI BU IQ Dan Helman again had the prominent place in our garden and XVeikert Hartzell and Celia Evans stood with him. We began, without much trouble, to do the things required of us-sell play tickets and magazines, help pay off K. K. debt and Lecture Course tickets. And so this second season passed with all of us growing taller and straighter. Again we took a short sleep and when we appeared, people did not recognize us as the little green shoots who had seemed so very, very green two seasons before. We have our roots very firmly planted. Dan Helman, Weikert Hartzell, and Marcella Douglas stood in the prominent place. The names on the Honor Roll were: Francis Abbot, Gertrude Dilts, Marcella Douglas, Norman Draving, Ruby Endsley, Celia Evans, Marcele Mon- tague, Marjorie Steward, Weikert Hartzell and Reinhold Hoffman. Our stage artists in the class play, "The Intimate Stranger," kere: Vera Kesler, Tom DeWitt, Jeanette Conn, Ralph Ogg, Jack Merris, LaVonne Pierce, Irene Johnson, and Glenn Bates. Our athletes were: Tom DeWitt, Don DeVine, Harold Haines, Betty Stetler, Julia Blake, Georgia Heist, Jeanette Conn, and Martha Humphreys. To close the season with a bang we gave a promenade for the benefit of our older sisters and brothers. In our garden that evening, under the moon and stars and the spell of enchanting music, everyone flowered out in their brightest colors and made it a joyous occasion. After this hard but pleasant work we were given a rest and we realized as we took it that the next time we were to have such a rest that we would never come back to stay. Our pleasures and hard work are nearly over with the able guidance of Weikert Hartzell who, with Dan Helman and Marcella Dougles, has headed us in this last year. We have worn our pins and rings for nearly a year which, for the time being, is a reward for our merits until we have the long hoped for diploma. Our Honor Roll for this year showed forth as blossoms: Esther Bergen, Annabel Dannison, Gertrude Dilts, Norma Draving, Ruby Endsley, Celia Evans, Marcele Montague, Evadne Norris, Mary Spayd, Laura McConahey, Weikert Hartzell, Reinhold Hoffman, and Gerald Miller. Our last play has been given, "She Stoops to Conquer," with Martha Humphreys, Laura McCona- hey, Gwendolyn Jerome, Mary Ellen Morrison, Jack Fechter, Dan Helman, Glenn Bates, Jack Ferguson, Curtiss Stoller, Carl Tomlinson, Morris Saam, Paul Wyandt, Charles Williman, David Roggenkemper, Kenneth Smith and Gerald Miller portraying their talents. Our athletes were: Heist, Blake, Conn, Chambers, Mowery, Humphreys, Hol- brook, Raymond, McDonald, DeWitt, Haines, Gilliland, Bates, Fox, Devine, K. Smith, Roggenkemper, Wyandt, and Gamble. Our height is reached and all the Old Rose and Silver has blended, forming for 107 girls and boys the word "Success." Graduation is here, the class of '30 wishes everyone the success and happiness which we have had-would you care if we sent them to you? -HELEN FEIGERT, '30, Tbirly-nine fXfAllBlJI2 Senior igrnpherg "She was in a wauking marathon, Say, she was the whole show, And she hasn't stopped competing Although it was six months ago." As this song came over the radio, sung by the famous radio performers Gernadine Baker and Marcile Gamble, I thought at once of the famous talking marathon in which Annabel Dannison and Mildred Derwort were paired against each other. One talked for ten minutes, then the other talked for ten minutes. Finally after about six hours and both going strong, Annabel started talking about the Class of 1930 in which she graduated. Annabel speaking: "The other day I ran into Jeanette Conn. If what I hear is true, Jeanette gets alimony from four husbands. Well, anyway, it seems as if Jeanette had just returned from an alumni reunion. While she was at the meeting she met a lot of our old classmates, and here's the way she told me about the reunion. QOh yes, Tom TDeWitt was there. I hear that he's signing Anita Smith's Peroxide for the Hair. Yes, and so was Jack Ferguson. Jack was a Senator for two terms. He holds the record for the longest speech in the Senate. He talked for thirty-six hours. There were several other speeches, too. Ruby Endsley talked about her life among the Zulus. Julia Blake told us how she was finding romance in everyday life. Kenneth Smith was there too. He stood before the statue in the east end of the Study Hall and tried to find out if it was Homer or Socrates. Morris Saam brought his wife and eight children with him. Flora Connolly, the great chemist, gave an interpretative dance, while Forest Brewer, who is still girl-hunting, inter- preted it. Oh, time, did you say!J" And then Mildred started. "I was at the reunion, too, and I saw everyone. Charles Williman was there in a party which Bob Trippy brought. Charles has at last become related by law to the Trippy family. Bob Trippy is a very noted writer. From the notes that he took on a trip with Charles he has written a parady on 'Travels with a Donkeyf Vaughn Starkey, the big butter and egg man, was there, too. He sat next to me. I found out that the butter and eggs had come from his dairy and poultry farm. I also renewed my friendship with the two Ziegfield Follies girls, Leora Sproul and Frances Abbott. Eulah Smith, who is famed as one of the most successful evangelists, came to the reunion just long enough to say 'Hello' to everybody. She couldn't stay, because she was conducting some services at the Rev. Daniel Helman's church. Carl William Alex- ander showed up at the reunion quite late but he said that he was detained by business. He has a second-hand store in Chicago. Gwendolyn Jerome formally announced her en- gagement to Clarence Grunewald. I never saw any pair act more like love-birds than those two. Marcella Douglas and Georgia Heist closed up their beauty shop to come, but they left early as they had appointments. Carl Tomlinson and his faithful spouse Qonce Marguerite Hartzogj gave everyone tips on the stock market. Donald Devine was in a very jovial mood and told us all about his adventures as a prohibition oflicer in Ken- tucky. It was perfectly thrilling. Oh dear, time,s up and I just started!" Annabel beginning: "Jeanette also told me that Bessie Black and Isabel Brown were there. Isn't it funny that they should own the Black Sc Brown Dye Company? She also said that Carey Withrow, the pugilist, gave a demonstration. I had a letter from Helen Feigert today. She said the reunion was a grand success. Vera went with Helen. Vera Kesler married a Celina minister and then Vera's husband married Helen to a Celina man. I hear that they are still good friends. Helen told me that they danced a little and that Agnes Gunsett was the chaperone. It seems as if Agnes is always in demand as pa chaperone. From what Helen said, Ruth McDonald came only to look for men for her bureau. She is running a bureau for women that can't marry. Ruth promises to catch the husband. Norma Draving looked very tired indeed, Jeanette said. I hear that she Forly ISXITALI Bllll intends to publish her fourteen page notes soon and she is working extra hard on them. After taking ten minutes to catch her breath, Mildred started again. "Mildred Chambers came wearing an exclusive evening creation of the Humphreys and Holbrook Style House. Mildred is the head model in the firm. Harold Haines has grown a beard and is trying to spread Bolshevism in America. Lee Gamble explained how he taught football to his players. He turned out a wonderful team last year, never a defeat. Al- though peace conferences are very much out of style at present, Marjorie Steward told me that she holds them regularly to keep all her friends on peaceful terms. Betty Gleason told me that she formed Ll laundry ladies' prep school after sending her clothes to the laundry once. During the program the chairman read a telegram from Amanda Krugh saying that she was so sorry she was unable to attend but as she was making her debut in the grand opera, she was unable to come. I found out later that even Margaret Clark, the strict critic, was loud in praise for Amanda's voice. Mildred Krieder told us about her around the world flight. Bob McGinnis, the undertaker, whispered to me that she showed signs of being flighty long ago. Mildred Mowrey supplied all the speakers with new jokes. Max Shook and his inspiriation, Florence Mankin, are teaching orchestra in Van Wert. Gaylord Fox, the great Sherlock Holmes-oh dear, time again," And again Annabel started: "I saw Flora Connolly the other day. She told me that she was the professor of chemistry at Ohio State University. Donald Hipsley, she also said, was the professor of English there. I read in the paper that Carl Fox, the electrician, died from a shock. David Roggenkemper, I hear, is holding a class in home sewing. Oh yes, at a bridge party I went to the other day, I met Thomas Thomas. He told me that Betty Stetler married Karl Shingledecker and they are living on a small farm. Floyd Geary is their hired man. I always knew Betty's ambitious eyes would get her something lovely. I saw a picture of Glenn Bates the other day. He is an advertising man. He advertises Arrow Collars. Let me see-is there anyone else? Oh, Harvey Beasley. I hear that he is trying to please someone. There was Celia Evans, too. It is rumored that a bold bad man out west, where she was teaching school, has made off with her. I heard Gene Gilliland give a talk against divorce some time ago, but now since his marriage, he is no longer against it." Mildred's turn: "Mary Ellen Morrison was also at the reunion. I think she's still looking for a husband. Marjorie LeViness and Luther McCoy came to ether although it is rumored that they are now seeking a divorce. Marjorie told me that Martha Raymond with her cat and cup of tea -is spending her days at home among her souvenirs. Paul Fleming has also entered the famous state of matriinony with Clara someone or other. Gerald Miller tried to get us all to live in Scott. He is spending all of his time soliciting population for Scott. Geraldine Clifton was at our reunion, too. She is a very devoted Christian. She spends most of her time playing bridge or at a Ladies' Aid Society. Re- member Vivian Stuck? Well, she's a dancing teacher, she dances very gracefully. Lois Miller is the star student of the Plumber's Correspondence School. Mildred Mathews looked very worried to me, but I learned that she is worrying about those condemning shadows. At the end of the reunion we were told about those who have died. Let's see- I believe that someone said that LaVonne Pierce, after an unfortunate love affair, just pined away. And then there was little Irene Johnston who tried crossing where traffic was dense, has gone hence. And Maurice Bernard got ambitious and stayed awake for one whole day and died from it. Carlton King has eloped with a circus acrobat and hasn't been seen since. Oh, your turn now, Annie." And so Annabel continued: "Do you remember when Mr. Katterheinrich called Analia Tate, Anolia Tail? Well, she is running a tea shop which she calls 'The Ol' Tale.' At her tea room I met Helen Ackom, the president of the Typist Association, who told me that Esther Bergen had just lectured to them on 'Know Your Ancestorsf She recom- mended as references the Marmosettes and the Hamadryas. I also learned that Lawrence Kesler has joined the Navy to see the world, and seeing it he is-and how! Roberta Evans Forfy-om' EXCALIBUIQ has moved to another town away from Marcella for a masculine reason. Oh! and Rein- hold Hoffman is the Justice of the Peace at Ohio City. Weikert Hartzell has recom- mended to Van Wert City Council that our 'small Jordan' be detoured or covered as its slight odor is fairly offensive. Did you see the modern art Marie Kinney has done? She was placed in the Hall of Fame for her work already. Margaret Alice Presley, who made pajama suits popular in Van Wert High, has a shop which specializes only in lounge ensembles. Paul Wyandt has a tailor establishment on Morris Avenue, New York City." And now Mildred again: "Ruth Schuster has the only Rathskeller in America, im- ported from Germany. Gertrude Dilts and Marcele Montague are trying our 'Gertrude Bower-Cook Book.' Gertrude and Mafcele have a delicatessen store. Curtis Stoller is a trick bicycle rider on the Keith Circuit. Irene Wise is secretary to Dr. Laura McConahay the great nerve specialist. Frieda Wfehage I hear is selling used calls. Marjorie Worth- ington is suing for breach of promise. The case promises to be the most important of the year. I see where Marjorie Williams, the tennis star, was introduced to the Queen of England. Edythe Tindall, due to resemblance to the notorious Miss Smith, was arrested last week but was soon released. Edythe gave me all the details of her arrest. She was sure to let me know that even Iva Chilcote, who was doing Europe, wired her regrets and hoped she would be released. Iva's companion, Evadne Norris, also wired. Are you going to hear Harold Gouty when he comes next week? They say he makes his violin talk. Helen Graham is still a perfectly good stenographer. Ruth Miller is selling vibrat- ors. Oh, your turn again, Mildred." And so far, far into time. 1JACH FECHTER, '30.

The good ship "Progress" of the junior Class has once again cast anchor after her third voy- age in a series of four: namely, Freshman, Soph- omore, junior, and Senior. You may be sure this trip has been a very plesant one, one that all the crew will never want to forget. XVe had as captain on this trip Kenneth Coombs, who also piloted us through our Sopho- more cruise. He had for his first and second mates Earl Smith and Johnny Jones, who also served under him during the last cruise. These ofhcials carried their respective responsibilities to the advantage of the crew. We were also fortunate in having with us those sailors who endeavored to make our trip a success by offering their services in obtaining good grades as our course advanced. Those of the junior crew for the semester honor roll were Trev1 Stuck, Margaret Sinn, Mildred Matthys, and Delores Pflum. standard high by obtaining athletic laurels. They should be given mention because of their spirit for "dear old Van Wert High School." ., 1 u D Z., 7. . , . I -'gg' ' 1 . .

Three crew members received varsity letters-Albert Stickney, Harold Kouts, and Myron Mowrey. ln baseball and track we were also well represented. For the ship's entertainment the crew staged a three-act comedy. "Honor Brightf' with our captain, Kenneth Coombs. and Mildred Rich- ards as the leading couple. They were sup- ported by a very pleasing cast. All in all the play made a big hit. Xve also had a girls' inter-class basketball team with Isabel XVright as captain. Although this team didn't make such an extraordinary showing they fought for the best. Now that the captain's log is Finished. it is evident that the happy memories of the third cruise of the "Progress" of the junior Class will live as a glowing ember in the hearts of its crew forever.

Sincerely believing "Lives of all great men remind us, we can make our lives sublime," our class, numbering 126, on September 9-19, '29, enthusiastically and jubilantly trudged our Way down "The Long Walk," up "The Trodden Steps," and over "The Threshold of Learningn worn by the footsteps of many former classes of "Sophs." We hearkened to the call "Let us then be up and doing," and the result was the following class organization: President, Robert Lehman, Vice-President, Don Cole, Secretary and Treas- urer, Helen L. Pierson. With a "heart for any fate," we boldly waded in "where angels fear to tread," into the intri- cate and unheard of realms of Geometry, Latin, English, etc. For weeks we boldly pursued and still achieved knowledge. Cur kind teachers had taken great and in- finite pains that we "learned to labor," and we soon found that Longfellow knew his "stuff" when he so feelingly penned the phrase, "Life is real, life is earnest."

Felger. We are also very proud of the fact that the Sophomore girls very nearly won the girls, basketball inter- class championship. We are further persuaded that "music can soothe the savage breast," so we were represented in the operetta, "The Ghost of Lollypop Bay," by Margaret Trippy and Vada Mohler. We have so far discovered "life is not an empty dream," and we hope to continue wide- awake during the next two, short years that re- mainu for us in high school so that we will achieve our goal, a diploma from "Dear Old Van Wert High," tied with Lavender and Gray.

Q., Gia new fl ' T52 "All mfs 1, A F- . - ee' :Freshman Gllaaa Zgiatnrg At last we were freshmen-in high school! How we had planned and dreamed for that mo- ment! But on that fine morning of September ninth we entered the shrine of learning with the modest sincerity of young explorers. When all had assembled, we soon discovered ourselves the biggest class in the school fwe then numbered about 1601 and were given the study hall as our home room. Here Mr. Nott aided our infantile minds in solving the trials and afflictions fwhich seemed insurmountablej of our "Freshie" year. After a few weeks we realized that, if we wished to continue our happy career, we must have a body of officers. So we proceeded to elect the officers who would lead us on through that year. Doyt Stemen was elected president and proved quite worthy of his trust. His opposing fellow classman, jack Hughes, was later made class representative, so all the evil results of an election were avoided. Olan Cordier was elected vice-president and Alice Siegel secretary-treas- urer. As the rest of the classes were also electing officers and cheer leaders, we made Lionel fDuckyj Webb an assistant cheer leader. He led us in assembly, on the athletic Held, and elsewhere in cheering UQ the opposing team and classmen. Not long afterwards we chose green and white for our class colors.

Hovt Ntlwn, Own: ,il llll Our class constituted a large part of the high school orchestra and band, and lustily helped to sing in the operetta, "The Ghost of Lollypop Bay," which was given by the High School chorus group. Considering clubs and organiza- tions of any kind, our class was well represented in the Y-Hi and Junior Hi-Y clubs. The school banking system proved hard to manage in our class, for we never seemed to be able to have a high percentage. Once the goal of 100'2 was reached but was lost within a week's time, much to our lament and the up- per-classmen's disgust. Our home room assembly gained much suc- cess qfrom our point of viewj , for the talents of music. of acting, and of reading contained in the class were soon revealed. We began to organize basketball squads when the season had arrived, both the boys' and girls' squads playing in inter-class games. On our boys' team were Olan Cordier, George Deal, Lowell Cook, Lionel NVebb, Chet Stittsworth, Elmer Draving and Homer Bernard. They overcame most of the upperclass teams and were recognized as real athletes. On the girls' squad were Marian Cassidy, jane Lehman, Louise Wil- kinson, Madge Angevine, Betty Borchers, Mary Elizabeth Sampsell, Genevieve Wfherry, Alice Conwell, and Helen Fox. They were a mighty fast squad, although not as successful as the boys, for they only lost and tied in the inter- class games. However, they survived and we still heartily applaud their efforts.

Paul Mary roll students were many, number- ing as many as eighteen in one six weeks. For some vague, unknown reason the girls always outnumbered the boys on the honor roll by a large majority. Nevertheless, we are proud of them all and urge them to continue their ef- forts for the good name of our class. Upon arriving in the school building soon after the Thanksgiving holidays, we were con- fronted with the fact that "every-pupil state tests" were on the way. These were over in one day, however, so everybody quickly recovered and looked ahead to the Christmas vacation with considerable expectation. These happy days soon became a pleasant memory of the past to us, and we all looked for- ward with fear and trembling to the weeks fol- lowing, trying to acquire a scant knowledge for the semester tests. But it happened that no one was very seriously overcome so we began again the work and play of a new semester, remem- bering that we were the Hrst freshman class in Van Wert High School to begin anew in the Hrst of the "30's." And so many other eventful happenings have filled the remaining part of our freshman year. We leave the freshman class with the memories of a year well spent, and we are looking forward to becoming a successful class in our sophomore year. PEGGY GERMANN, '3 3.

New members have been captured now and then and have been made one of us. Only one has left to conquer new lands. Many of our crew have been on the Honor Roll from time to time Qand many have notj. On the semester Honor Roll we hnd Eileen Clifton, Polly Anna Dickinson, Har- riet English, Betty Fergus, Frances Horn, and Jane Watterson. Our athletic teams have had good luck this year, the girls' team doing equally as well in basketball as the boys. We are quite proud of our musical talent for about ten of our pirates are in the band and several more expect to be included soon. The banking record for Section One has been fairly good. They have had one hundred per cent each week but the first three. Section Two has not quite made the same record. Our leaders, Misses Stetler, Hankammer, and Ramsey, and Mr. Mercer have cheered us on more than once when our courage was weak. Mr. Diener gave us a very interesting talk in "Guidance" class on the vocation of teaching. We were all sorry when the period came to an end. We have had other talks by prominent speakers about the different vocations which some day a few of us hope to enter. Now as we sail along, the good ship High School appears over the horizon and, hav- ing heard of the great treasures it has stored in its strong hold, we ride on to meet it with stout hearts fbut quaking kneesj. - FRANCES HORN, '5 4. Seventh Grabs Qistnrg Let's go to the Seventh Grade movie now. The first scene is in the school room before school has begun. The pupils are reading newspapers, "The Cloak Room Riot," edited by David Gaede and Billy Ray, and "The Weekly Parrot," by Hazel Roberts and Dorothy Dippery. The second scene is after school has begun, with Banking as the center of interest. It has been hard to keep a perfect record but we have done well. Next we Hnd some of the boys at orchestra which is in its second year of existence. The fourth scene is in the gym, where they are playing basketball. The girls have had a good beginning under the direction of Louise Perry, a Junior in high school. The cap- tain of the girls' team is Dortha Holtsbury. The boys won the Seventh Grade champion- ship of the Van Wert schools. Donald Tindall is the captain of the boys" team. Several of the pupils are in the band, which is our next scene. At the first of the year it was all "do-re-mi" but now they are playing real music. Next we Hnd the Seventh Grade waiting anxiously for their semester report cards. The following pupils found their names on the half year honor roll: June Allingham, Marjorie Balyeat, Helen Baxter, Dorothy Dippery, Elizabeth Fell, Patty Gauvey, Aileen Lawhead, Margaret Longsworth, Hazel Roberts, Eloise Speelman, Doris Varnfield, and Billy Ray. The last scene is that of entertainment. The most important one was the roller skat- ing party at the Y. W. C. A. Your scenarist is Dorothy Dippery, '35.

C, lfwbank Glnarheia, managers :mil Cllheerleahers COACH KLENDWORTH Coach Klendworth came to us this year, and put the reserves through in fine shape to Hll vacancies on the First squad. He also had charge of all track men. A great deal of credit is due him for his loy- alty and hard work for Van W'ert High School. COACH SMITH Although this was Miss Smith's first year as girls' athletic coach with Van W'ert High School, it did not take long for her to gain the confidence and admiration of all the student body. MR. KAT'fERHEINRICH Mrl Katterheinrich took Mr. Speith's place as faculty advisor and had no small job when he tackled it. His work was taking care of the finances and business end of the athletics, buying new uniforms and equipment, and settling ac- counts. CoACH ENWBANK This is Coach Ewbank's second year with Van W'ert High School and he showed his ability in shaping a team to the best advantage for the school. Although we lost several letter men last year, that did not discourage him at all. The coach de- serves a lot of credit for his work. XVEIKERT HARTZELL W'ike played nursemaid. painter, water carrier- in fact, a "jack of all trades" where athletics were concerned. W'henever last minute bandages or wraps were to be put on, XVike was always at hand, ready to do his part where ever he could. JACK FERGUSON This is jack's third and last year on the cheer- ing squad. 'Pep" was jack's middle name, even the center on the varsity squad envied him his jump- ing ability. If it had not been for jack and his megaphone, things would not have been so lively along the side lines. BARBARA HARRIS This is Bob's second year with the cheering teams and she is to be congratulated on her hne work. W'hen the crowd was lacking in spirit Barbara made them sit up and take notice. DUCRY WEBB Ducky was jack's right hand man on the cheer- ing squads XVhenever the luck was against us Ducky never let up on the cheering but kept plugging right along, keeping up the true Van Wert High spirit. This was Ducky's first year and we expect big things of him next year. Sis ly -six -- . . .

W. H. S. needed that little extra push that it takes to make a football player, Tommy was right there to hold up his end of the line. This is his third year and we expect bigger things in 1931. BOB CASSIDY When Bob got out on the football field he forgot every- thing except to crash through and get his man. This is Bob Cassidy's second year and he has two more years to play. Dick GECOWETS Dick played a good brand of football this season-noth- ing spectacular but good, straight, hard football. This is his third year with us and he will be hack next year. We will he expecting still better playing in the future, Dfxvm ROGGENKEMPER Dave played a good season, and he could be depended upon to play real football throughout the game. GENE SCHMID1 Gene had tough luck this year by hurting his knee sev- eral times, keeping him out of a few games. Neverthe- less, he kept the pep in the fellows, in or out of the game. This is Gene's third year as tackle and we will have him back next year. KI-.NNETH CooMBs Although "Kenny" had a slight handicap in height and weight, he was as is generally termed "small but . mighty," and it is Certain that most of the opponents who ran up against him found this out, This is Kenny's second year and we expect him back next year. Bois LEHMAN Bob played halfback and what he lacked in weight he made up in speed and Hght. He has two more years and if he keeps up the way hc has been going there is no reason why he should not be a star player. DON DEVINE Don held up the center of the line, and there was, we feel, no doubt as to his ability for quick thinking when the odds were against him. This is Don's second year with Van Wert High School. Sm ly-rigbi EX1f A ll DI Ill? Ilinnthall Elettermen GENE HAMLiOND As a guard Gene surely Filled the requirements. No mat- ter what the score was. he kept up the old Scarlet and Gray fighting spirit. "Peanut" will be with us again next year. Keep up the old Eight! DON COLE We think that those who saw any of the games know how Don put all he had into the game. NVhen he quit trying it was because the game was over. Don has two more years to play. PAUL VVYANDT Paul played a good game at tackle, but due to injuries he didn't play very much this season. He is graduating this year and we are sorry we cannot have him back next year. KENNETH SMITH "Smitty" played center when Don didn't. Kenneth didn't play so much but when he did he had plenty of the old fight. ALBERT STICKNEY "Red" played halfbaclt and he surely showed the stern stuff of which he is made. WU' could always depend on "Red" for the hard plunging, straight ahead football. This is 'zRed's" third year and we will have him with us next year. GENE GILLILAND Gene played fullback and how!! There were very few fellows that got past him, and he could always be de- pended on when Scarlet and Gray needed a few extra yards. Gene's leaving us this year. Luck and success in the future! GALE Fox When we mention Rosie's name there is no need for further talk, because we all know when he started there was something going on all the time. This is his third year but he graduates and his place will be hard to till.

Fox, Key-ur. Clxflon. Grrcncwald. Ewbank, The Van Wert Cougars played .1 good brand of basketball throughout the season, winning ten games and losing seven. Practically the entire squad had seen service in former years, so with this experience as a background it set out and played a co-operative game. The opening game was easily Van Wert's when Union went home with the short end of a 33 to 15 score. But everyone will remember the game at St. Mary's. Van Wert and the Memorial High boys were tied during the whole game. Neither team could get an advantage. The time drew short while Van Wert was just one point behind. Kouts tossed a neat one from the foul circle. It hit the rim and rolled around-aroundf- around-and-out! The game was over and we had lost by one lone point. But what a game! And there was our tournament, too. The first game we won, much to our sur- prise. However, as in the last three years. the second game proved to be our "Waterloo." Next year the team will miss Tom DeWitt, Harold Gouty, and Carl Fox, who are graduating this year. But there will still be Kouts, Stickney, Mowrey, Cole, Lehman, and Shock, letter men from this season, who are going to take that Cougar howl to every cor- ner of the league.

Slitlxncy At the beginning of the second semester the fellows in high school who were wearers of the varsity "V" formed the Hrst Van Wert High School "V" Club. To raise the standards of the high school athletes scholastically, morally, and physic- ally is perhaps the most important function of the club's program. The "V" Club took an active part also in the school's relations with its adversaries by promoting understand- ing and good will among the visiting athletes. Tom DeW'itt was chosen to head the club in its many activities. Tom Alberts as Vice-President, Weikert Hartzell as Secretary, and Albert Stickney as Treasurer, assisted Tommy in guiding the club throughout the semester. Other members were added to the club throughout the semester. Other members were added to the club roll from time to time as they became qualified by earning the varsity letter. ss At the end of the basketball season the "V ers sponsored a mixer for the entire stu- dent body. Besides giving the school a social event this mixer brought the club's treasury department into being and aided in giving a banquet in honor of the basketball players of both squads. Next year the club is going to do things in a big way for Van Wert High School. V 1 'I Write, 30 S tuli hir' I W fi if if 4 2, ik, is 2' 'a its fi F5 ...

All they need is a little backing along the sidelines and they're re.1rin' to go. Eraek '3U Track Coach Klendworth had some material with which to work from last year. but the majority of the fellows were out for their First time. The letter men of last year either graduated or are ineligible for this year's meets. The following is the schedule by the track team: Wapakoneta ,,,,,.... .,,.., ,,,,..,... , .

This is Van Wert's second year with a track team, although they hardly got started last year. With this year's material and the experience of the track men, Van XVert should have a bigger and better team in 1931. Cole will probably throw the javelin, Stickney the discus, Milheim will pole vault and run the hurdles. Owens, D. Stickney, Scott, and many others will comprise the team. Gym 'BU The gym classes had a regular routine to follow this year, and it has benefited both boys and girls physically and mentally. The learning of new games and tactics created much enthusiasm among the rival teafns. At the first of the year the interclass indoor babeball teams played for the championships of their re- spective classes. When they were compelled to stay indoors on account of weather they had many indoor sports, such as basketball, volley ball, speed ball, working on the ropes, bars, trapeze, mat work, and many other interesting sports that created enthusiasm. Gym is required but there is not a doubt but that the majority of the students would take it were it an elective subject.

Our four plant platform is: "Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Living." Our meetings were divided into three types. Religious resulted in many very inter- esting discussions led by Rev. Martz Snyder. The social consisted of many enjoyable ban- quets followed by fine speeches. The business meetings were very successfully led by Mr. Zimmerman, Y. M. C. A. advisor, and Mr. Ewbank, faculty advisor. The forming of open membership to our club was one of the very successful projects carried out early in 1930. Also we have asked to bring the 1930 Hi-Y conference to Van W'ert. CARL TOMLINSON, '30.

The three sides of our fi triangle represent Spirit, Mind, and Body. Our platform consists of the four C's: Clean ' Living, Clean Speech, Clean Scholarship, and Clean Athletics. l Our meetings during 1929 and 1930 were of three main types, namely: social, business, and religious led by Messrs. Gallapoo, Greenewald, and C. M. Muir. The pur- pose of these meetings was "to transact such business as shall come before us, to fortify our purpose through conference and Bible study, to strengthen the ties of friendship that bind us together, and to make ourselves of greater service to our fellows."

Z5tmh Although the history of the Band is short, it deserves much credit. Last spring a re- quest for all those interested in playing in a band was issued by the principal with the re- sult that many enthusiastic students responded to the call. Mr. Leonard Wolfe, of Celina, was engaged as Bandmaster and work immediately began. Out of the many students that wished to enroll in the band, five were already able to play an instrument suitable for band work. All the others started from the bottom, up the long and often weary ladder of practice and work. Lessons were continued through the summer months and new recruits were added as the weeks went by. On the day of the first football game .1 thirty-live piece band greeted the teams and fans. After this Hrst public appearance of the band many students at once applied for a seat in the organization. New students were added as the months rolled along until in the spring we had Hfty pieces playing in regular concert. To Mr. Leonard Wolfe goes much of the credit for his ceaseless effort and untiring patience. He has proved himself to be an all-round musician and accomplished bandmas- ter whom all the band students were proud to own as their superior.

Fndsl-JV, llanlvison illliixeh Glhnruz SECTION ONE This year. instead of having the usual boys' and girls' glee clubs, one large mixed chorus of over one hundred voices was sponsored. This proved to be a pleasing change from the old method of carrying on, since it added to the interest of both the boys and the girls. This chorus was divided into two classes, thus enabling more pupils to take part The usual year's curriculum was carried out with many pleasing sidelines for variety Short programs were put on before some of the prominent clubs of the city. programs in churches. banquets, etc. These programs were enjoyed by those who had the pleasure of listening to them and were very much commended for the high type of work. To climax the year's work a very pleasing and ditferent type of program was put on before the weekly High School Assembly. This proved to be very interesting for the high school pupils, not only for the time consumed, but for the educational value, showing them that old Van XVert High still had a real music department in its curriculum. Mr. Jones gets much of the credit for this successful year of activity, as he has for all the other years that he has been connected with our school To Mr. James H. Jones we wish to express our thanks and admiration for the cease less effort that he has put forth to make Van XVert High School a better place for our academic pursuits. Not only has he aided the high school but the community at large, making it a better place in which to live. He has shown us the better side of life and the relation that good music really bears toward good living. We wish him many more years of success and happiness and hope that our lives will make life lighter for him as his has for us.

Van XVert High School succeeded in showing its competitors, St. Marys and Celina, what it could do. Our contestants proved themselves to be very worthy musicians. In short, we succeeded in capturing the first prize a complete library of musi cal books: Harmony, History, Orchestra, Band, and many others. First place was taken in all three chorus events as well as many individual events, and second place in band and orchestra events. Van XVert's entries in the contest were as follows: Male Quartet- ack Merris, Max Shock, Tommy Alberts, and Bob Trippyg Mixed uartet-Bob Trippy, Louise Perrv, Celia Evans, Max Shock, Tenor Solo-Bob Trippyg Alto Solo-Celia Evansg So prano Solo-Louise Perryg Baritone Solo-Max Shock, Soprano and Alto Duet-Louise Perry and Celia Evans: Sousaphone Solo-Tommy Albertsg Clarinet Solo-Paul Rhodesg Cornet Solo-W'illard Perring Piano Solo-Anolia Tateg Bartitone Solo-Carl Alexanderg Saxophone uartet-Don Cole, Francis Mathews, Gerald Miller, and Herbert Knodle Brass uartet-Francis Mathews, Max Shock, Gene XVilliams, and Willard Perrin.

Th mysterious plot was centered about Louise Perry, Margaret Trippy Edna Wills, Vada Mohler, Robert Trippy , Floyd Geary, Glenn Bates, and Morris Saam.

At this meeting a committee was appointed by the president pro tem to frame a suitable constitution. The constitution was presented and adopted and the following officers were elected: President-NVeil-tert Hartzell. Vice-President-Ruby Iindsley. Secretary-Mildred Matthys. Treasurer-jack Ferguson. It was thus that a club was formed which has proved very interesting and fascinating to mathematically inclined students. Since the Held of mathematics is so far-reaching and there are so many subjects in close relationship to it that should be studied, only a few of the high points can be touched upon by our club. Some of the subjects, strictly mathematical, which have already been taken up are the slide rule, mathematical recreations, and the three problems of antiquity-the duplication of the cube, trisecting an angle, and pi. On the Thursday before Christmas the grls of the club entertained with a mathematical lunch after which each member received a Christmas gift. A slide rule contest was held Thursday, March 20th. NVeikert Hartzell proved to have acquired the most knowledge of the slide rule during our study. Miss Huggins, who was made an honorary member, gave a talk on "Advanced Mathematics and College Requirements for Math." She afterwards secured for us Mr. Shipps, of Ohio Wesleyan University, who talked on "New Demands for Mathematics in Many Scientihc Fields." Mr. Moyer, our adviser, who planned many delightful meetings for us, presented several IUOSI interesting facts on a subject closely related to mathematics-that of astronomy. From these speeches We learned how closely related our chosen subject is to many other Helds of study and how very important and essential it is. We began to understand how great the Held is for studying and broadening our minds. TREVA STUCK, '3 1.

Eligibility for membership was founded on four fundamental virtues, namely: character, leadership, scholarship, and service in school life. Character was determined by the willingness of the person to meet his obligations to the school promptly and completely, and his showing class and school sprit toward both teachers and fellow-students. Leadership was based on initiative in the classroom and extra-curricular activities, in holding of offices and committee chairmanship, and in exerting a type of leadership for the other students of the school. The most important requirement was Scholarship. The student was judged on his record made in the past years and on his seemingly initiative spirit in regard to his studies. The society is based mainly on this characteristic and is meant to stimulate the rest of the non-scholastic group of high school students not in the upper 2596 of their class. The fourth characteristic was Service, being the willingness on the part of the student to do any service assigned to him for the school or outside, to show courtesy to strangers and underclassmen, to be zi represen- tative in interclass competition, and a willingness to uphold scholarship and a loyal school attitude. The following students met all those requirements as judged by the faculty: Seniors-Annabel Dan- nison, Marcella Douglas, Norma Draving, Ruby Endsley, Celia Evans, Helen Feigert, jack Ferguson, Weikert Hartzell, Reinhold Hoffman, Marcele Montague, Ruth McDonald, livadne Norris, Mary Spayd, Marjorie Steward, Charles W'illiman: juniors-Ruth Costin, Mildred Matthys, Mary K. Myers, Delores Pflum, Mar- garet Sinn. Although the remainder of the school year was very short, a public induction was held for the charter members by an out-of-town organi7ed society. This was a step toward higher standards for the school. Crua EVANS, '30. fflglitry-ti'1i'n 1 52 s fl fl 1. il ya If I ii I 5 1 fl .

"The Cotter's Saturday Night," the Hrst number on the course, was presented by the Scottish Musical Comedy Company. It is based upon Robert Burns' immortal poem of the same name. The author, John Daniels, portrayed the spirit of Scottish life so vividly de- scribed by Burns. In a quaint old Scotch setting of the eighteenth century, John Ander- son, the cotter, his family, and some of his friends are shown spending a Saturday evening with songs, stories, and laughter. Beautiful old Scotch melodies, familiar to us all, made this one of the finest musical entertainments in the Course. "Sun-Up," a vivid drama of Carolina mountain life, was a character study built around the reactions of mountain folk to the forces let loose by the World War. Marie Pavey, the star of the cast, played the part of the "Widow Cagle." She portrayed the Southern mountaineer character very vividly. Other characters were Rufe, Widow Cagle's only song Pop Todd, Emmy, his daughter, Jim Weeks, the sheriff, the preacher and the stranger. Rare comedy was portrayed in the play, but as a whole it was intensively dramatic. Robert Jackson's Plantation Singers offered a musical production decidedly out of the ordinary. The Plantation Singers opened their program with a plantation scene. The lat- ter half of the program was devoted to negro spirituals, southern songs, and plantation melodies. Mr. jackson is an authority on negro folk lore and negro music. His Plantation Singers are genuine artists, who enjoy every phase of their work, having a variety of pro- gram material. "Roll, Jordan, Roll" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" were included in their limitless repertoire, together with scores of other tuneful melodies. Lew Sarett, the woodsman poet, is one of the unique literary figures of America. His program was one of the very finest ever presented in Van Wert. It was scholarly, artistic, and intensely interesting. His likable and pleasing personality contained no sham or artificiality. His lecture, "Slow Smoke," was interspersed with readings from his own poems. Lew Sarrett is one of the most popular professors at Northwestern University. "Many, Many Moons," "The Box of God," and "Slow Smoke" marked by such power and beauty, have by the general agreement of literary critics established his supremacy in this field. The concluding and one of the outstanding numbers on the course was "The Liszt Ensemble." Building on Liszt selections the company presented compositions representa- tive of the great masters of many lands. The young ladies constituted an outstanding orchestral ensemble. Each member of the company was a solo artist of truly notable ability. Novelty musical arrangements were introduced to provide variety and entertain- ment. An unusual feature was the girls' string quartet. The program had a delightful appeal to all music lovers.
