History of the Class of ,25
The new Vincennes High School had been built and the dedication
ceremonies were to take place at the High School building. I had been
graduated from V. H. S. only four years before, so of course I was very
much interested. I managed therefore to be among the first to arrive.
While I was waiting for the ceremonies to begin, my thoughts wandered
back over my own high school days. X
,f-fmemembered that when I first enteredajluniori High School as a
Freshman I was very dignified. However, such uncomplimentary re-
marks made by the Senior High students as "The Freshmen are getting
smaller and more ragged every year," soon put an end to this feeling.
ff This was a time when many of our number began to feel that school
life was not agreeing with them. Consequently, many were leaving school
to take upon themselves the responsibility of earning their own living.
Vincennes High School entered the Basketball "Hall of Fame" this
year, gaining for herself state recognition by winning thirty-eight con-
secutive games. Although Vincennes had never had a championship
team, this year she set a pace which had seldom been equaled.
f The ,next year, after a summer of hard work, we made our debut in
gh School as Sophomores. Here for the first time our class was
organize . Charles Racey became President, Helen Lloyd, Vice-President,
Helen Richards, Secretary, and Leo Metsker, Treasurer.
,f0ur basketbaxllyge mkamlerxa very successful season, went to the state
.tournament and wo . lixstt s was the Hrst basketball ' F' 4 'n-,,,
c n, we were justly proud of our team. QA X l Q' "1 A 6 '
Early next fall we elected the J oHicers. Charles Racey
became President, Helen Richards, Vice- resi ent,TW'eldon Brian, Secre-
tary, and Herman Klein Treasurer.
One morning we were unpleasan surprised to find that our books
had been "stacked" by the Seniors. A some trouble, we managed to
get our books together. W p s, however, and did nothing
in retaliation. l Y
Soon after Christmas, the Seniors, vi-ted us to a party, which we en-
joyed very much. They were amplyrepa' though, at the Junior-Senior
After having an indifferent season basketball, Mr. Adams developed
a championship track team. The tea , a xr a remarkable season, showed
up well in the state meet.
The next year, our senior year, e ered a new regime. First we
had a new principal, Mr. Eikenberry. t we went into new home rooms.
Then, through the efforts of Mr. Eiken e ry and other school officials, we
were able to have a football team. tho h it did not have a very suc-
cessful season, we believed that in " e foo all in Vincennes High School
would be almost as successful as basketball.
v TIT.S.-i----------'--'---I-Ghz :mf1.2aof+.-------v---+1925
At Christmas time, the Seniorsr entertained the Juniors with a
Christmas party. After the plays had been given, Santa Claust'?J gave
each member of the Faculty an appropriate gift. The evening was enjoy-
ed by all.
The basketball team this year had another successful season, and we
went as far as the semi-iinals at the state tournament.
I , ,, '
Besides gaining renown in athletic circles, Vincennes was branching
out in a scholastic way. We entered both the Tri-State debating league and
the National Constitutional Oratorical Contests, and organized the Honor
Society. This was the lirst year of the Honor Society in Vincennes, con-
sequently the members of that year became charter members.
The last month of school was the busiest of all. Besides our les-
sons f'?J We were preparing forthe Class Play, Commencement, and other
Senior aciivities. . r
Here I was suddenly awakened from my reverie by the beginning of
the program but as the spring breezes bring the eddying gusts of wind
laden with sweet fragrance from budding flowers, so diffenent parts of the
dedication program brought back to me the pleasant memckies of my days
at V. H. S. 7.
UPON TRYING TO WRITE POETRY.
What? write a poem 'Z oh I can't do that
For they say that it's hard as can be,
And all I can think of is "How to get thin,"
Which isn't poetic, you see.
I've tried and I've tried, but it just can't be done,
For everything just suggests "fat,'l
But whoever heard tell of a beautiful poem,
With a deuce of a subject like that?
I can't think of mountains, but those of ice cream,
And sea foam means candy to meg
I can't think of flower but the kind that's in pie,
So how can I write poetry 'Z
Let this be a warning to girls, who like me ,
Continually try to reduce,
With a weighty subject like that on your mind,

Prophecy of the Class of H925
One morning, as I was looking for a piece of scrap iron in a local junk
yard, I came across an old, rusty lamp. I thought nothing of it at first, but
upon a second glance I could see that it was once a lamp of rare beauty,
for the exquisite carving showed faintly under the rust. Thinking it would
make a fine curio, I took it home.
I scraped off most of the rust, then took a rag and began to polish it.
But I had no sooner rubbed it than a hideous form of gigantic size appeared
before me and said, "I am ready to obey thee as thy slave, and the slave of
all those who have this lamp in their handsg I and the other slaves of the
Terriiied at the sight I stepped back. My hand fell upon the paper on
which I had been writing the prophecy. Trembling in every joint, I held
out the paper and asked him to bring me the true prophecy of the class.
He disappeared, but promptly returned with two pieces of paper. He
laid them down on the table, then vanished.
I eagerly examined the papers and read the followingzz f

THE HALF WAY HOUSE.
In the heart of a rugged mountain,
Midway to it's lofty peak,
Where footsore and weary from travel,
The Wayfarer a rest-place would seek.
Just off the lonely footpath,
Safe sheltered from wind and blast,
The Half Way House nestles securely,
Away from the storm and it's wrath.
You thought could you gain this level,
Contented forever you'd be,
To bask in it's sunshine and revel.
At the beauty you there would see.
But above you in all it's grandeur,
The summit but lately concealed,
Seems to urge, to plead, and lure you,
With new treasures, to there be revealed.
Looking back the roadway seems easy,
As the ascent before you, you view,
See the obstacles you must encounter,
If your journey you would pursue.
But only to him who climbs upward,
Till the topmost pinnacle is gained,
Shall the beauty be seen in its fullness,
And its vision forever retained.
Classmates, we have been climbing,
Through long years of happy school days,
Thinking naught of the journey beyond u
For commencement has dazzled our gaze.
Naught daunted our early ascension,
We climbed upward with confident tread,
Shall We quail before life's sterner duties
And faint-hearted, fail now, instead?
Let us not like the footweary traveler,
Be contented here to remain,
But press onward with earnest endeavor
Till life's highest summit we gain.

I don't care if you've changed your mind
It's everybody's right.
You can count me as a friend
Or know me just by sight.
I don't care if you like her best
Because I know she's nice
But, gee, I hope in choosing her
That you've thought more than twice.
I doubt that she will know each mood
And whim your mind can take:
I don't know if she'll understand
The queer remarks you make.
It takes some time to know you well
And understand you too:
But I hope that she will learn
To know you as I do.
And in the years that are to come,
Through days that are to be,
I hope that you will take sometimes
A moment's thought of me.
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?
Aneas and his little boy
Slid down the fire-escape from Troy.
He took the family bric-a-brac,
He took his father pick-a-backg
His wife Creusa he forgot,
QAlthough he loved her quite a lotb.
She perished in the fire, poor dame!
He often thought of his old Hame.
From Troy, he sailed the raging tide, O,
To Carthage, where he fell for Dido.
Then left her cold and went to hell,
Came through and married very well.
No one had ever thought him bad,
He was so sweet to his old Dad!

THE SPIRIT OF 1779.
Not with the blare of trumpet
Not with Hag and pennant afiame
Not on a fiery Charger,
As a conquering hero he came.
Not with a mighty army,
Bent upon conquest and greed,
Scattering death and destruction,
Envy and hate, and their seed.
No, just a few of the faithful,
Ragged and hungry and cold,
Footsore and weary from travel,
Men whom the right had made bold.
These were the hosts that the leader
Guided through morass and fen,
Fired by the cry of the helpless,
Giants it made of these men.
Is there a wonder that evil
Enthroned in the fort at Old Post,
Magnitied one into manyg
Made of each soldier a host?
This is the spirit that conquered:
Freedom with God and the right.
This gave us dear Indiana,
Land of the free, Land of might.

On the Science of Flunking
fWritten especially for the ediiication of incoming Sophomoresl
Flunking is the favorite indoor sport of many 'tstudentsf' It's real-
ly a very simple thing-tlunkingr. It takes no work at all. That's just
what it takes-no work. There are several other ways of Hunking. Of
course students think them illegitimate, but these ways are a means to an
end, a very certain end. And since teachers approve of them, as a means
to this end, you understand, they might as well be used.
Sophomores, if you want to flunk in V. H. S., buy some shot and use
the aisles as a bowling alley, adjust the shades on the stage until they look
like fans, or use the chair in front of you as a footstocl and the arm of
your own as a signboard. You must understand that none of these ways
are guaranteed. Give them a fair trial, at least five out of every six weeks.
The secret of all success in this line is not being too skillful. Don't try to
"get by." When you throw shot let your arm swing back and forth enough
to attract attention. Hit somebody if you can. With constant practice you
may be able to hit even your teacher. Make plenty of noise in lowering'
and raising the shades. Change the angle of the "slats" with the back of
your hand. When you put your feet on a chair, sigh deeply and yawn
widely. If any of these ways fail, ask an assembly teacher for a six lzffter
word meaning "an obsequious person." The same word will be your name
at the end of that six weeks' period.
If you do these things seven periods Cperhaps you'll have a chance at
the eighthb every day, observing all the fine points that will make you an
adept at flunking, you will surely not fail to fail. Didn't somebody once
say to strive for the beautiful or something like that? Isn't a P more
beautiful and symetric than E. Beautify your cards as much as possible
and you will be highly successful-in flunking.
There was once a man who had lots of brains,
And he used 'emg
Another, who had just as much-
He abused 'em.
Each night in folly he whiled away,
Did as little work as he could, each day,
And the b1'ains he had, Ilm ashamed to say,
He excused 'eml
The man who employed his powers of mind,
His air was keen, his eye was bright,
His life was zestful.
And the one who never had used his head,
"Why, I could have done that too," he said,
"But lld rather loaf through life instead.
lt's lots more restful!"

Card day's gonna come to our school some day,
To test our wits an' learnin' an' brush the cobwebs 'way
An' make us study, make us Work, an' dust our bra.ins an' sweep,
An' make us try, an' make us Wish our memories to keepg
An' all us High School students, when the supper-things is done,
We set around with all our books--don't have a bit o' fun,
For We read, an' drill, an' study, on what each book's about,
Fearin' that We'll all flunk through
Wunst they wuz a little girl thought she Wouldn't fail-
An' she went to class relyin' on her mem'ry frail,
Soon her classmates heerd her holler, an' her teachur heerd her bawl,
For 'tWasn't as she thought it Was, an' she hadn't passed at all!
So next she sought in this book, an' that book too, I guess,
An' sought in one short day a sure road to quick success:
But what she really found was that she couldn't pass, without
She'd studiedg an' you can't neither,
An' so I'll tell you, classmates, that when your hearts are blue,
An' the tests jes' keep a-comin,' unto me an' unto you,
An' you hear the teachers' Warnin's, an' prospects all are gray,
'An your hopes o' gittin'-by is all squenched away-
You better mind yer studies, an' your teachurs fond an' dear,
An' git the lessons 'signed you, with a heart jes' full o' cheer,
An' answer every question 'mong those 'at cluster 'bout,
Er card day 'll find you lackin'.

The year 1925 saw football introduced into V. H. S. for the first time
since 1910. Though the energetic work of Mr. Graham, chosen to coach
the team, and Mr. Eikenberry, and Mr. Adams the call for men was is-
sued and equipment bought, and passed out to enough "men" to form a
first and second team. With less than three Weeks practice the team met
its first foe, Princeton. The team met with some discouraging obstacles
but pulled through the season with a commendable record for a "green"
team. The results of the Gridiron battles were:

The past season of 1924-25 has indeed been a successful one. ln the
scheduled season games the Alices defeated 27 teams out of 30 played.
Chosen by "Shootin 'em" of Indianapolis News to Win the State the team
remained in the race until the semi-finals, when they were beaten by
Kokomo. Our season's record includes 30 games Won out of 35, defeating
State Champs by the largest score ever made against them, Winning the
Wabash Valley Championship, a tourney, second to the State in number
of schools entered, and winning 14 of 15 tourney games. After this sea-
son only four men remain of the first squad, but some very promising ma-
terial has been developed on tho second team. We look forward to a Very
successful season in 1925-26 with John L. Adams holding the reins.

This year the second team played a full schedule of twenty games,
and won sixteen of them. The team was ably coached by Mr. George G.
Graham and was exceedingly popular with the public. The team though
small in stature was fast and accurate in goal shooting. Each of the
players is eligible for the first squad next year, and we hope to see several
of 'them on 'the regular squad next season.

rl-he Vincennes Girls Team
At the beginning of the season, it was thought that the Vincennes
girls would not have interscholastic basketball, but would nave interclass
games instead. This plan was carried on successfully for several weeks.
A team was picked from all the class teams. Only three games were play-
ed and each was Won by a comfortable margin. With the material now
developed, V. H. S. has a brilliant future for girls basketball.
Fritchton and Oaktown were defeated here. Earlier Oaktown was

Shortly after the basketball season was over the call for track candi-
dates was given. About forty students heeded the call and became thinly
clads in hope of making tlie track team. Those left over from last year's
successful team are Firman Wampler in the dashes and quarter mile, Al-
lega and Costello in half and mile runs, Wayne Wampler in low hurdles,
Simpson and Schied in high jump, also in shot put, and Richard Anderson
in the pole vault.
There is some promising underclassmen out for training which will
add to our team next year. The season's schedule and meets so far are:
April 9-Bicknell 1555 at Vincennes 1445.

rl-be National Honor Society
The Lincoln Chapter of the National Honor Society was established
in Lincoln High School, April 2, 1925. There are both alumni and Senior
in the organization. Since this is the first year of the Honor Society in
Vincennes High School there are no alumni members and the present
members are charter members. Both Seniors and alumni are active mem-
bers. The elements by which a student is graded are: Character, Ser-
vice, Leadership, and Scholarship. At the beginning of the second semes-
ter, ten percent of the Seniors Were selected by a Faculty Committee com-
posed of Miss Dunn, Mr. Painter, Miss Harsha, and Mr. Graham. The re-
maining five percent will be selected at the end of this year. The char-
ter members are: Helen Hogue, Helen Richards, 'Catherine Wick, Violet

This is the lirst year that Vincennes High School has had a debating
team. This year Vincennes entered the Tri-State Debating League con-
sisting of Bosse, Central and Reitz high schools of Evansvilleg Henderson.
Kentuckys Mount Vernon, Princeton, Owensville, and Vincennes. During
February debates were held among the various schools comprising the
league. Vincennes tied for first place with Owensville, both schools having
won 75 per cent of the contests in which they entered. Vincennes won
contests from Princeton, Bosse and Central, and lost one contest to Owens-
The team consists of Eleanor Hohn, William Bogie, and Olin Parrett,
attirmativeg and Edna Mae Smith, Lyle Fulford, Charles Cummiskey and
Walter Risch, negative. Miss Miller, English and public speaking instruct-
or, coached the debating teams.
The subject for this yearys league debate Was: 'tResolved: That the
proposed child labor amendment should be a part of the United States
Since this is the iirst year that any considerable attention has been
given to the subject of interscholastic debating by Vincennes High School,
the school is taking a just pride in the showing the debaters made.

By this time there is no need to tell what the Blue Triangle Club is.
It has now started on its fourth year. The club has been better than ever
before, this year. The meetings and spirit of the girls have shown a great
improvement even over last year's. There is an active membership of
fifty-three, including the twenty-one new members brought in this year.
Twenty-five of the girls will graduate with the class of '25,
The meetings have all been planned ahead of time. This year, for the
first time, We have had Vesper meetings which proved most successful and
impressive. "Girls' and Boys' Night" this year was a bigger success than
ever before. The freshmen furnished unusually good entertainment
through their talk test. A Valentine party, St. Patricks Day party, a
hamburger fry, a barbecue and a swimming night are some of the social
functions that were greatly enjoyed.

C-The Hi-Y Club
The Fall of nineteen-hundred-and-twenty-four was the beginning oi'
the ninth year of existence of a Hi-Y organization in Vincennes. The
Spring of nineteen-hundred-and-twenty-five ended shortly after the Hi-Y
year. Many things can happen in a school year, and many things did hap-
pen to the Hi-Y club in that time. Its membership increased from 15 to
40. Those forty boys have made themselves worthy of Hi-Y, and Hi-Y
worthy of them. Only a few are left, and they will take others, whom
they think best, to fill the unoccupied chairs. Those, who have gone, will
be influenced in their lives by the ideals that Hi-Y has set forth, and by
the famous four planks in the platform of a member's life, clean living,
clean speech, clean athletics, and high scholarship.
The oflicers and membership for the 1924-1925 Hi-Y year, were:

rl-he Post Sentinel
The present school year is the first time for several years that Vincen-
nes High School has had a school paper published regularly. The staff
members were elected at the beginning of the school year by the student
body. This group decided on the name "Old Post Sentinel" and decided
also to publish the paper as a monthly magazine. The first edition came
out in November and since that each of the six issues has been better than
the preceding one. It is only to be hoped that the "Old Post Sentinel" will
be as successful in the future as it has been in 1925. The following are the

5-The Latin Contests
Vincennes High School entered the Latin Contests this year for the
first time. Twelve thousand students, representing four thousand, four
hundred and fifteen different schools, participated in the local contests over
the state of Indiana. The winners in Vincennes Were: Sophmores, Isa-
belle Milligan and Opal Kinnaman, Juniors, William Bogie and James
Reilly: Seniors, Helen Thompson and Catherine Wick. These six students
represented Vincennes in the county contest. The sophmores and juniors,
all four, won in the county. The seniors had no competitors in the county
so they were privileged to enter the district contest without sending in any
The contest for the second district was held at Sullivan, March 28,
1925, in the new high school building. The grades made there range from
70 to 98. The grades of the Vincennes students were all in the nineties.
Helen Thompson won second place among the seniors, making one and six
tenth per cent lower than the winner madeg and Isabelle Milligan won third
place among the sophmores.
It is hoped that next year Vincennes Latin students will "go in" to win
For the last six years Louisville, Kentucky has conducted a Bi-State
Contest. This year it was held in the Louisville Male High School with
the Latin Club in charge. Vincennes sent contestants, Helen Thompson
and William Bogie. They went, not expecting to win, but to find out some-
thing about the contest so that in the future Vincennes might win. The
Latin Club gave the contestants and chaperones a royal good time indeed!
Louisville has won the contest every year, this year included, but we're
hoping Vincennes will win some time in the future.

by Mrs. E. M. Seaberg, of Chicago, nee Glen Unverferth, Class of '19 with
a cast of about twenty Cl13.1'3.CtG1'S.
The principal characters in the story are Austin Bevans, an auto sales-
man, David MacKenzie, a law student, George Boyd, an accountant, the
Simpkins twins, all of whom room together at the top of a New York
houseg Homer Johns, guardian of Elsie Bendotti, senior class president in
a girls' boarding school, presided over by Miss Hayes, fwho in reality is
Mr. Johns, wife who has left himj 5 Miss Curtis, the secretary, Sally Boyd,
George's sister and several school girls.
Austin inherits a girls' school from his aunt, and determines to take
tull charge of it, teaching the girls only to be charming. An agreement is
reached between Mr. Johns and George that the mortgage shall be fore-
closed in the event that any of the girls fall in love with Austin.
Mr. Johns takes Austin to the school and they find Miss Curtis trying
desperately to get her accounts in shape. She is relieved in having George
established as accountant. David is eventually established as Austin'c
lawyer and the twins instructors in violin and dancing. The girls, in the
belief that Mr. Johns is the new owner, vote to all go home, in protest.

THE CHARM SCHOOL, Continued from page 7Q
Upon meeting Austin and finding he is the head, all decided to stay, and all
try to attach themselves to him. It developing, through Miss Curtis, that
Elsie is a poor scribe, Austin suggests that she write a note each day to
Miss Curtis, for correction, but Miss Curtis admitting her own faulty spell-
ing, Austin consents to correct her work. While Austin is giving strict
orders that there shall be no personal communication on the part of the
teachers with the pupils, Miss Curtis brings him a note from Elsie, which
arouses violent protest on the part of George, who is in love with Elsie.
Elsie enters Austin's room without permission and declares her love, which
is overheard by Miss Hays.
Elsie runs away, leaving a note. Finding from Sally her probable
destination, Austin goes in a car and G601'g9 by train in search. Austin
nnds her, but the car breaking down, they obtain an old horse and buggy
and ride all night to reach the school by morning. Mr. Johns is there, in
response to a telegram, and announces that, since Austin has forfeited his
right to the school, under their agreement, by Elsie falling in love with
him, Miss Hays is to be re-established as head of the school. The twins'
father has already sent for them to come home and George and David pre-
pare to return to New York. Austin upbraids Elsie with the mischief she
has wrought to his work, telling her that she is the most silly and obstinate
girl he ever knew-but that she has CHARM, and the curtain goes down
with HER in HIS arms.
