THR VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE Dedication To John A. Balour, whose interest and activzfty in the Vinton schools during the past four years warrants the respect of stu- dents and patrons, do we, the Class of 1925, dedicate this book. THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE The Price of Victory A foe was loose and the field was clear, Ile bore toward our goal with a savage rash, One man alone was left to stop his mad career- The crowd brolfe forth from a breathless hush. Roger saw the danger but he knew no fear, He alone that man must stop, A touchdown, defeat, were all too near, Into the runner he dove-they dropped. Oh! victory, that game was won in glory, But robbed art thou of all thy pomp and flash,- That one last dive has closed the story, Stewart's life has paid the price. He is gone, yes, gone foroper To a distant Football Ground,- Gone across the gloomy river For life's last and Great Touchdown.

Iireiim' HAYs M. MAIN DR. E. A. BI'x'roN NVM. C. Hi'1.sis VVe, the student body of Vinton High School, owe a debt of gratitude to the members of our Board of Education. First of all, we are indebted to them, as representatives of the community. for our beautiful building, Lincoln High. We all feel a great degree of pride in being able to refer to it as 'tour Alma Mater." VVe realize that the home and the school are the two greatest factors in laying the foundations of our lives. XVe owe, to a considerable degree, that foundation to the efforts of the Board of Education 'in securing able and ef- ficient instructors for us. Appreciating the amount of work and worry which they have undergone in our behalf. we wish to take this opportunity of letting them know that we are grateful to them for their eforts.

We can not pretend that We are glad that we are being graduated. VVe are not. VVe leave behind us old as- sociations, old customs, our friends, our classmates, our teachers, our memor- ies-even all our life up to this time. This is the last time we can walk through these halls and feel that we really belong. VVe can come back and visit, but it will never be the same again. It is in vain that we assure ourselves that we shall meet again, that We will have reunions Eillil will often come back together. It can 11ever be the same to us again. The old bond of u11ity breaks this hour. But a greater tie is formed. We Shall find ourselves linked together in a. larger bond of friendship and good fellowship. A larger door is opened to us, and as we step through, we see behind us the breaking of old ties-the parting of old friends, but looking ahead we see a new, broader, more opportune life stretching far away. There is no limit but the limits that we ourselves make. NVe may go as far as we wish. The road lies open. If there are a few hills, we can climb them, if the way lies in the valley, we shall eventually come up again to the level path, if the road is rough and hard to travel at times, we Shall be able to reach the clear stretch beyond if we but will it so. So, though we leave this, our old life, with vain regrets, we look forward with hope to the new field opened to us. THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE Class Will THOMAS DONNELLY. Friends, classmates and teachers, Lend me your ears, For I come to plead a noble cause with you. When in the course of school events it becomes necessary for one class to dis- solve the bonds which connect it to the rest of the school, and to assume among the rest of the classes the separate and equal station to which customs of the school entitle them, the decent respect for the opinions of mankind requires that they declare the causes which compel them to self-commendation. The evil we do lives after usg the good is oft .interred with our WILL. s We holds these truths to be self-evident-that all students are created equal: that they are endowed by the creator with certain inalienable rights, among which are: life, a trace of which may be found in the Juniors after microscopic examina- tiong liberty, such as Donald' Markham and nearly all the freshmen attempt to exhibit if they cang and pursuit of the honor rollg that to secure these rights classes are instituted among pupils, deriving their just powers from members of the fac- ulty, and whenever any class becomes proficient in these accomplishments it is grad- uated. ' We, the Class of '25 having reached this proficiency, being of sound and dis- posing mind and memory, and being desirous of disposing of our property in a man- ner other than Mr. Balcar would dispose of the same should we die intestate, do hereby make, publish and declare the following to be our last will and testament, hereby revoking any and all former wills by us at any time made. ITEM I. 1. To which we 2. To the kinks BEQUESTS TO THE CLASSES: the Juniors we present the key of knowledge, success and prosperity have used so profitably and which we hope they will make good use of. the Sophomores a flat-iron to in-CREASE their knowledge and iron out in their brain. We advise the Sophomores to heat the iron and "STRIKE" while it is hot. 3. To the Freshmen our only gift is a baby spoon so that they may realize their position and have a more natural form of nourishment. ITEM II. BEQUESTS TO INDIVIDUALS: 1. John Hicklin leaces all of his lately written love lyrics to Maurice Borde- wick! Enlarge on them Mauriceg they are mighty good rubbish. 2. As the last straw, Genevieve Harper leaves all her rights, privileges, and at- tentions of Donald White to Ella Gustafson. 3. Donald Schindler after much deliberation decided to leave all the pen and pencil drawings made during his high school career to Robt. Luckey, as an example o-f what Robert should not draw. 4. In full regard to their pugilistic ability we present John Whitney and Charles Hite each with a baby rattle. 5. Harold Geater leaves only one of his extra "feet" to Glen Heil. 6. Since James McLean has reached the suspender stage, we will present him with an extra pair. 7. With the exception of a few lost ones, Alvin Milfs leaves all of his love letters to Gertrude Cook as an example of his literary ability versus love sickness. S. Don Mackie leaves his winning way with the women to Harry Sellers. 9. Grace Parzybok and Bill Gordon leave their wireless whisper-broadcasting set to Laird Day and Lucy Linsey. A new code be made as their secret code is being reserved for possible future use. I 10. Leone Beller grudgingly bequeaths her fondness for the WOODS to anyone interested. 11. We present Mary Collins with a stabilizer to keep her on her feet when going down stairs. Merrill Balhorn willingly bears half the expense. 12. Ruth Wilson leaves her quiet, unobtrusive way to "Curly" Walensky. Now try to be a "lady," Curly. 13. Everett Rice leaves his fastidious taste in dress to Morris Montgomery. 14. Alberta Thompson bequeaths her ability to sing in the assembly to Ruth Fowler. 15. Donald Smetzer donates his ability to sleep peacefully in the assembly to anyone who is so inclined. THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-Fivm ITEM III BEQUESTS TO THE FACULTY: 1. Lawrence Fisher, with what knowledge he gained from the Sweeney Auto School pamphlet and the aid of his 5512.50 tool set, has constructed a model Ford which he leaves to Miss Mohn for her monthly trips to Mt.

Signed: Harold Forsythe Eugene Walensky Harold Neve Class History---1925 Do you remember way back When the school bell rang on the m-orning of September 1, 1919, heralding the news to all? Last year's sixth grade had moved up a notch and the class of 1925 was entering Junior High Sch-ool. Forty-five spic and span, freckle-faced, unusually intel- ligent boys and girls, the combined cream of the East and West buildings were be- ginning their journey through the perils of a High School ca-reer. We had our first real class meeting and elected as our worthy president Roger Stewart, and as our secretary and treasurer Grace Parzybok, who kept her eyes open by means of her coiffure, and chose Miss Goocher and Miss Farnam as our advisors. Our social calen- dar included a "weiner" roast at Stony Cut and a party at the home of Hazle McAn- drews. When, as eighth graders we elected Thayne Shields as president and Clara Whip- ple as secretary and treasurer? We had a Halloween party at Blanche Hitchb-orn's and a Valentine party at Pearl Braginton's. VV'hen the girls in Home Econom.ics made those white sailor dresses which they wore for commencement? When, in 1921, we entered Senior High School as a class of eighty-eight members, with Pearl Braginton as president? Thomas Donnelly walked into third grade, think- ing he was going to Freshman English class. We had a postponed Halloween party on November 4th at the school building and later a St. Patrick's party. The day they took our picture for the Arrow, someone dared Grace to wink, and she did. When, as Sophomores, we mourned the loss of several of our number, especially the presence of our former class president, Charles Hite, and h-ow Clara Whipple re- fused to be comforted as she left him to the Freshmen? How successful our year was because we were wise enough to elect as our leader, JohiT Franklin? When, as Juniors, we pr-oudly contributed from our ranks the yell leader, three members of the Basketball team, eight of the boys' Glee Club, nine of the girls' Glee Club, and four entrants in the Declamatory Contest? Gwendolyn Patton was our president. And now as Seniors with Otto Stueck as our president we are nearing the climax of our j-ourney through High School. Our efforts have been to make the 1925 Arrow a decided success as it pictures High School life. We hope to leave Vinton High School with a determination to succeed and make her proud of the Class of '25. ALBERTA THOMPSON. THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE Class ProphecyW'Z5 It was one of these fine evenings that come in early spring in the year of 1934. I was 28 years old, and you know it is said a woman is an old maid at that age. However, I was still happy, although a "Miss" might 'yet go on my tombstone. I was sitting in my library reading "The Three Leaf Clover" a local paper edited by a classmate of mine, that sweet J. D. Franklin. J. D. Rockerfeller left "Deac" a little fortune because he had those same impressive initials as the great oil magnate. Old Rockefeller knew his oil all right. I surely had to laugh at a Write-up by the Honorable Thomas Donnelly who was an editor of College Humor. He gave such splendid ideas on "How to Change Funny Sayings so One Can Get a Laugh from Them." I thought back when I was in high school with Thomasg yes sir, there he was the same joke, only bigger than ever since he has grown older. And to my surprise I saw an ad of Lillian Molzen and Blanche Hitchborn's below Thomas's write-up which read: "Best of service for people interested in marriage. We guarantee to get you your choice in a man or woman- maybe substitute ourselves." A I thought because it appeared in that column it was meant for a joke-"Deac" is some editor! I saw also, the advertisement of John Hicklin's latest novel on "My Girls Back Home." It appeared in last week's paper and I had already read the experience by a man who knows and knows and knows. You all remember that jolly little Ellis Ellingson. He said he was hoping to meet Jack Dempsey soon-he'd show that old fossilized pugilist how to get through the ropes. Ellis is an A-1 pugilist, you see. I read in the Vinton news items that Lawrence Fisher was agriculture instructor in Lincoln High School. Also, strange to say, Clara Easterday was a member of the faculty, teaching Home Economics, I think. Pearl Braginton had become first assistant t-o the second asssitant's assistant editor for the "Daily Times? She had charge of the "Bright Sayings! of Children." I read in the society section that Miss Vera Marietta had given a dinner in honor of LaVonne Fowler, who was just married to a young farmer in Shellsburg. On turning to the page listing the coming events of our next lyceum course, I noticed a picture of the performers. I looked at their names to see who they were, and sure enough-there they were as big as life-Grace Parzybok and Leone Beller with Donald Schindler and Raymond Stevenson. The writer of the play, the season's hit, was Miss Lulu Riggle. Can you imagine this of little Lulu R., a country teacher? Oh success, it is wonderful. Helen Runidall was their pianist. And speaking of Helen I remember of reading of her composing a number of songs, one of which was, "There was an Eddy in My Brook." After I had read the papers I tuned in on my radio. As I sat there waiting for something to come in, I smiled to myself. While I was pondering over the won- ders of the radio an announcer said, "Station, V. I. N.-Vinton, Iowa, Sheriff Donald White offers reward for robbery occurring in his own home. A cigar box con- taining 999 gum wrappers was looted and contents stolen." I found out later he had been saving gum wrappers for a cowboy suit he wanted as a disguise in his pro- fession. At last I was able to get station D. I. Z. I was glad because here was one of my favorite announcers-he was just wonderful-his voice was so romantic sounding. Then he announced "Captain Earl Gordon of California University will now give a speech, followed by Coach Donald Mackie of Chicago." Think of that, fellows, captain and coach! VVell as I live and breathe, Earl way out in California and Donald in Chicago. To think of Bill giving a speech-do you remember way back when they wanted him to talk in chapel, and how he avoided Mrs. Luckey and Mr. Balcar when they ran after him? Then for the first time this announcer intro- duced himself-and as Everett Rice! Did I open my mouth? Oh, no, it was just a mistake-I yawned. Here I had been admiring that wonderful voice night after night and to think it belonged to Everett. When I tuned in on station W. O. C. the announcer was reading the losts and founds. "Lost: a very handsome man, beautiful eyes, beautiful mouth, beautiful smile. He was 'dressed in the latest fashion and when last seen had a French poodle under his arm walking toward the river. He is known generally as Alvin Milfs." THE V1N'roN ARROW Fon NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE V I -ze- A month ago Iona Mayhew had given up her position as announcer of losts and founds for station W. O. C. to join a troupe of saxophone players. I got station W. S. U. I. from University of Iowa. The program was miscellaneous. Got a New Man," by Anna Noble. Anna had cul- was in Europe. She wasn't like myself-I sent mine gone for it yet. The tirst number was a song, "I tivated a beautiful voice while she over to get it trained but haven't member of the faculty Miss Florence Mohn. who The next number was by a gave a talk on "How to Eat with your Knife at Dinners." Maybe no one will be- lieve this, but 'Esther Edmonds sang "Doo Whacka Do." The concluding numbers caused severe tickling in one's feet when George Walters and his orchestra, playing for the Victor Company, broadcasted. I was just leaving the house for my evening walk when the door bell rang and there was a messenger boy, Francis Stevenson. How familiar he looked! He had a special for me postmarked Chicago, which proved to be from Lydia Stufflebeam. She wrote she was coming to Cleveland to visit me and mysteriously added she was bringing along a little party of girls. For once I heard my Big Ben at 7:30 o'clock, and a little later there was a buzzing of a car and voices outside. First, I saw Lydia and Alberta Thompson, but I broke a rule of etiquette as usual, standing with my mouth open-one of my signs of trying to think,. Then it came to me in a flash that the rest were Clara Whipple, Hazle Mc and Dorothy Franklin. How I ever could have forgotten them is more than I can say. We all talked at once as all women do. Later I got my 1925 ARROW and we looked at the Senior class and talked over the good old days. Between times they told of classmates of whom I had lost track. Otto Stueck was in Hollywood with his players, playing "Merchant of Venice," with Helen Maynard as his leading lady, Donald Smetzer as his director, and Joe Myers his business and advertising manager. Harold Geater was president of "Garter and Stocking Manufacturing Company" in New Orleans. Now don't think your ears are deceiving you, hut Ralph Williams is a. great bot- anist. He is making a special study of bleeding hearts found in South America. Mabel Wayson is a missionary in Sydpr-oven, Greenland. Ruth Wilson was a designer of dresses in New York, but her home was in Paris where she often :went to get plans for her work. Elsie Mussman and Margaret Knuth were traveling salesladies for pictures of Genevieve Harper to be used on gum wrappers and kiddies handkerchiefs. They were very successful. I learned that Helen Consamus lived at Livingston, Ohio, where she spent her time in raising birds and cats and catching butterflies and caterpillars and gathering flowers. A very busy woman, I thought. Irene Coleman and Doris Anderson lived at Erie. Irene was physical training teacher there in the high school. Alberta told me that she had read very helpfal articles written by Irene on 'the subject of reducing. Doris is taking a law course at Ann Arbor at the present time. Rosie Horak was a cookie demonstrator for the Uneeda Biscuit Company. Gwendolyn Patton was operating the cutest "G INN," at Colorado Springs ffhat's the name of the Inn.J And Adalaide Quackenbush was at the head of the Venus Beauty Parlor, with Gertrude Happel as her assistant, in Cleveland and I didn't know it. They specialized in henna hair dying. And little Elton Shaw-well, she lives in Tampa, Florida, where she is taking special lessons in fancy diving and swimming. Maybe it would be cf interest to know what Hazle Mc. and the other girls are doing. Hazle is keeping a dairy-Dorothy is a greatifriend of Hazle's tahemb and is interested in bakery goods and is taking lessons of Messrs. Van Camp and Campbell. Alberta Thompson and Clara Whipple are trying to write a series of books similar to 1Horatio Alger's famous works. Lydia Stufflebeam is dramatic coach in a high school in Chicago. We decided to go for a drive and visit some:of our friends that lived nearby. We were a very happy bunch when we went off that day. Dolores Hall '25 THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE Senior Play The Senior Class play "Strictly Confidential" was presented at the high school auditorium on May 20-21, 1925. The action, which takes place in England, centers around a young actress who leaves the stage to marry an artist who proves to be a nobleman.

Class Song Of 1925 Tune: "Fraternity Man." VERSE Vinton High School has a graduating class, XVith boys who are good sports, and many a happy lass, They came into high school just to find they were so dumb, And before the year was over they were feeling more than glum. But now they have come to know they can do some things, They are ready now to show that they can make things sing. Although they are so peppy, they are sad about the heart, But they want to sing a happy song before they have to part. CHORns Gee! you can spot a Vinton High graduate, They are so peppy, and quite up-to-dateg They have a jaunty air, attitude "be on the square," Sure they are always fair From our High School. They know the way to take defeat with their gains, They can make decisions sane And for our strength and zest, We give our thanks to you, Here's to ol' V. H. S. 7 -HELEN RUNDALL, GRACE PARZYBOK.

They entered the new building as Freshmen- no greener than some of the Seniors, because the school was new to all. The class was very large, at first, but several have dropped Out, leaving the num- ber now at sixty-six. Since the Junior Class sold more season tickets to the football games than any other class, the High School Athletic Association gave a party to them. This party, in the form ot' a picnic, was held at the city park. The Junior girls have something to be chesty about, by winning the girls' lnter-class Tournament. Two of the boys played on the Varsity Basketball team-Billy Mclntyre as forward, and Lyle Gallaher as guard. Byron Auld, another member, is captain-elect of next year's football team. - The Junior Class has done well in the Declamatory Contest, Keith NVood- house placing first in the Oratorical class, and VVilma Adams winning second in the Dramatic class.

NVe had a party where cornstalks and feathered fowls furnished the entertainment. After a veiy successful year, in spite of the fact that our number decreased to one hundred, we were ready for vacation.

The class is active in athletics, with a member on the regular boys' team, and with five girls on the basketball squad. Many Freshmen are in the Glee Clubs. There were no Freshmen aspirants for declamatory this year, but we plan to have some in future years.

He's the man that can coach football and put out a win- ning team. He helped make the basket ball and track teams, too. Vinton owes a lot to Ray as our athletic coach. Coach C lycle Lamb Clyde Lamb came to Vinton from Nashua where he coached athlericslastyear. He may be small but he is mighty in forming teams that win. He made a basket ball team that has excelled any team Vinton has had for a long time. He is now prov- ing that he is also a real track coach. THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN IIUNDRED AND TWVENTY-FIVE Vinton Football Season 1924 Football prospects at the outset of the 192-1 season did not look very bright. Due to the eight semester rule Captain Stevenson, Smetzer, McArthur and Walker were lost to the team. Coaches Clyde and Ray Lamb were forced to mold a team from practically new material. Letter men from the victorious 1923 team were Don Mackie, Stewart, Auld, Ellltl Earl Gordon. However the addition of Ed Doebler, former Reinbeck star, and Don Markham added strength to the team. Fisher, Schindler, Everett Rice, King, Ellingson and Franklin were made into efficient line material. Byron Abernathy from the eighth grade, and Eldon Mackie, a freshman, were groomed as ends. In addition Good, Lloyd Gordon, Walensky, Young, Lyle Gallaher, Gerald Gallalier, Whipple, Mclntyre and Harold McGirr were considered as capable reserves. After three weeks of strenuous drill, the locals started one of the heaviest sched- ules yet attempted by a Vinton team. MARION 19-VINTON 0 On September 26th Marion, true to predictions, defeated Vinton on their home field. lVith six new men in the line, Vinton was unable to hold consist- ently the battering Marion backs. The backtield played classy ball at times. The locals held the Marionites to one touchdown the first half, and local supporters be- lieved the team would improve with experience. VINTON 34-XVALKER 19 The next Friday, October 3, Vinton journeyed to Walker. It looked like an entirely different team. The line began to function like the forward Wall of the previous year, and in spite of a drizzling rain, they opened up holes for Gordon, Auld, Doebler and Stewart to roll up 34 points. Inexperience again showed itself, however, for an intercepted pass, a wide end-run, and a touchdown from a kickoff by the speedy Powell gave Walker a well-deserved 19 points. Several of the substitutes inserted in the last quarter were partly responsible for the last touch- CEDAR FALLS 6-VINTON 0 October 10th found Cedar Falls on the local field. By a series of passes in the first quarter they soon had the ball in scoring territory. Here split bucks and off-tackle smashes placed the oval across our goal line. From then on Vin- ton was able to hold them near the center of the field. In the fourth quarter Stewart opened up with a series of brilliant passes and Doebler lunged his way for two first downs. With three minutes to play Doebler passed to Stewart, who caught the ball after a magnificent leap. But tackled as he was coming down, the ball was fumbled. A Cedar Falls halfback recovered the ball on the six-inch line. Cedar Falls punted out of danger and the game was over. VINTON 34-LA PORTE CITY 6 On October 17th La Porte City's husky football team came down for vengeance, after the 57 to 6 defeat handed them the previous year. They held our team scoreless for one quarter but smart linework with Doebler's plunging and Gordon 's off-tackle twisting were soon responsible for 34 points. La Porte City made a touchdown by completing a series of passes. Schindler, Markham, Rice, Fisher and Don Mackie on the line, flanked by two sweet-looking ends in Eldon Mackie and Abernathy, were greatly responsible for our victory. VINTON 13-CENTRAL CITY 6 October 24th was a sorry day for Central City. Vinton made a 6-point lead in the first quarter and then played a safe game. It was no trouble to hold Central City in the center of the field for the next two quarters. Early down. THE VINTON ARROW Fon NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE in the last quarter a Vinton center was penalized one-half the distance to our goal for slugging. A substitute went i11 and he was penalized for talking. This put the ball on the one-yard line. Quarterback Sawyer put the ball over the touchdown but missed the dropkick. This enraged the Vinton team, who received the ball with only four minutes to play. Stewart carried the ball on the third play by a cut back through tackle and ran forty yards to the fifteen-yard line. Here a weak side forward pass from Gordon to Stewart was executed perfectly and Gordon VINTON 7-INDEPENDENCE 7 Vinton went to Independence on November lst. They were still smarting under the defeat handed them the previous year and were set for the locals. Vinton received, and its furious offense, aided by poor booting by the Inde- pendence punter, put them in several positions to score in the first quarter. On one of these chances Gordon circled left end, only to fumble, Hlld a red- headed, black-sweatered half-back scooped up the oval and ran 96 yards for a touchdown. They place-kicked for the extra point. From here on Independ- 61106 put on a stubborn resistance which was broken down in the third quarter for a tie touchdown made by Doebler's end running and a pass to Stewart. Here Doebler ran the ball all over for six points but Gordon missed goal. The fourth quarter found Independence fighting desperately on the defense and punting whenever in possession of the ball. A last-minute rally carried the ball up to the 20-yard line and with 40 seconds to go a drop-kick went wild. It was a heart-breaking game for VINTON 7-BELLE PLAINE 0 Armistice Day saw a large delegation of Belle Plaine rooters at Vinton to see them take down the county seat boys, but Ty Smith 's aggregation, although making an impressive showing in their other games, were let down hard by Coaches Lamb's fighting team. ln fact Belle Plaine made o11ly three first downs, and were never in dangerous scoring territory. King at center, Rice and Markham at guards, and Fisher and Don Mackie at tackle completely out- played their opponents. D. Mackie played the game of his career. Stewart in the second quarter led the Vinton backs for a fifty-yard drive down the field. On the eight-yard line he called a weak side pass and Gordon whipped hi1n a 6-point counter. Gordon kicked goal. The rest of the game was a battle, Vin- ton refusing to endanger her lead by opening up. The last quarter saw Belle Plaine shooting passes all over the field, but they counted usually with our backs. A large crowd saw the game which decided the championship of Benton county. ' VINTON 7-ANAMOSA. 6 On November 15th Vinton's formidable team, with a score of rooters, made the trip to Anamosa. The Prison City team had- been sweeping everything be- fore them previous to our game and a hard conflict was expected. Vinton re- ceived and started a drive down the field whichilooked like a sure touchdown, but several penalties by the head linesrnan stopped them. Anamosa took the ball and 'proved that their reputation was well founded. They were fast, had a deceitful, bewildering attack, and played for all they were worth. They made a touchdown by a series of cross bucks and delayed end runs in the sec- ond quarter, but missed the extra point. Vinton came back strong in the third quarter and, due to the magnificent end running of Doebler, had the ball on the one-yard line with only one down left. A pass was called and Gordon threw a pass to Abernathy, who leaped high in the air for the touchdown. Gordon drop-kicked for the winning point. In the fourth quarter Stewart was taken out with an injury, but Doebler, with his tremendous smashing, and the stubborn defense of Markham and the Mackie brothers, kept the ball in mid-field. With a minute to go Gordon booted the oval to the four-yard line where E. Mackie dropped the quarterback in his tracks, and the 1924 football season was over. kicked goal. our boys.

His generalship on the Held in calling signals, in sizing up sit- uations, made him 3 natural leader. In addition Roger could block and tackle like a college man. He saved three games by catching forward passes for the winning touchdowns and much of the success of the 1924 season is due to Roger Stewart. EDWARD DOEBLER Fullbazcli' Ed, a former Reinbeck star, was the outstanding man in the offense. His 170 pounds, together with a thorough knowl- edge of football, made him a marked man. He could run the ends, smash the line, punt, pass, and back up the line in perfect fashion.

Don- ald, good passer and steady, reliable play- er as he was, will be missed next year. Rex divided up the time with Schindler at center. This year was his first for ac- tual experience and he came through in fine shape. King is an accurate passer, and with nexg years Laining should develop, into one of the stars of the team. IJONA LD SUIIINIDLER HEX KING f'l'7lZ'K'l' DONALD MA RKIIAM Gum-rl Donald, with his 176 pounds of fight, was a valuable man for the Purple and Gold team. He could block and charge like a college lineman and was a master in the art of using his hands on defense. l.YllE GAlll,AHEH Guard Dog saw experience in several games and oy his cool.ess and determination showed that he would be one of the lead- ing athletes in 1925. Next year should see him holding down a regular position.

His graduation leaves a vacancy JOHN FRANKLIN GIHIITZ and Tackle Deac, by his years of service to the team, proved his worth by staying out for football although he did not start every game. When he did get a chance in a game, Deacon more than proved his worth. Determination, aggressiveness, which will be hard to till. loyalty and cooperation are qualities which will cause him to be missed next fall.

Toledo was the next, victim. They had a tall, rangy team but the Vinton boys were in great form and ran up 30 points while the best the opponents could do was to make five free throws. By this time the local quin- tet was in mid-season form and had the backing of the entire town. The La Porte game with a 15 to 8 score was another case of a small, fast. agressive team completely outplaying its heavier opponents. Vinton 's trip to Toledo and Tama was highly successful for bothtgames were won. Toledo had improved 10031 but the locals nosed them out 16 to 13 in a fast game. Tama made a good showing in the opening minutes of play, but Vinton's varied of- fense soon told to the tune of 17 to 8. The tired, but still undefeated Vinton team journeyed to Cedar Rapids to play Grant. Although winning the game 10 to 9, Vinton was badly off form. The Dysart game, true to dope, proved to bea fast game. Dysart, who lost one game out of thirty in the season, were in scoring mood, defeating Vinton 30 to 22. The teams were tied in the Cedar Valley League, and this, in addition to the rivalry between the two towns, packed the gym to the doors. The next week Vinton again swung into their winning stride. and let down Grant 18 to 12 for the second time. The defeat had evidently not discouraged our boys. No excuses or apologies are offered for the Traer game, which we lost 20 to 6. The fact remains that all basketball teams have their off nights. lf they come infrequently a winning team is the result. In the last scheduled game of the season Dysart again demonstrated that a good big team is better than a good little team. All the spectators knew that two real teams were on the floor that night. and, at times-especially during the first half-Dysart had good reason to be worried. BENTON COUNTY TOIYRNAMENT Vinton won the County Tournament in easy fashion, defeating the four strongest teams by comfortable scores. Urbana was the first victim and, al- though leading the home quintet 7 to 5 at the half, fell before the furious of- fense of Coach Clyde I1amb's boys, 17 to 11. The Van Horne game was a walk away when Mackie and Co. let them down 27 to 5. Three Vinton teams saw service in the one-sided contest. Shellsburg put up a stiffer battle, but were well satisfied with the tail end of the 15 to 6 count. Keystone had easily de- feated Blairstown and Garrison and had the right to play Vinton for the championship. Keystone played furious ball in the first qua.rter and were be- hind 6 to 5 when the gun barked. The next period found Vinton piling up a commanding lead and the half ended 12 to 6. Keystone now made their bid for supremacy and in the third quarter were again within one point of the locals with a score of 14 to 13. Vinton 's stubborn defense held their opponents scoreless for the balance of the game, and Faris and Gordon each dribbled in for counters making the final score 18 to 13. SECTIONAL TOURNAMENT Class A was a round robin affair between lla Porte, Traer and Vinton. The first game between La Porte and Vinton ended disastrously for our boys, who lost 9 to 12. Nervousness caused our team to blow enough set-ups to win easily. Traer battled all the way to finally defeat La Porte 18 to 15. A last minute rally was responsible for their victory for they also had a hard time hitting the loop. Vinton played Traer in the evening. The gold sweatered Vinton boys gave a neat exhibition of floor work and piled up a safe margin which was overcome in the last two minutes by a basket by Pinkerton. Faris however caged a difficult basket from the center of the floor to tie up tl1e THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWRNTY-1-'IVE THR VINTON ARRow FOR NINETRRN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-Flvm Class A section. Dysart came off with honors in Class B. Only luck kept the Tama County lads from winning the state tournament at Boone. It was necessary to play off the tie in class A Monday. Vinton played La Porte in the first game. The locals clearly outplayed them, winning by a 19 to 11 score. Vinton played at such a furious pace that the LaPorte lads were in an exhausted condition at the final whistle. LaPorte cancelled their game with Traer, due to a. certain agreement both teams made prior to the c011- test. This gave Traer the advantage in the evening game which Traer won 15 to 11. The game was however a desperate battle with the tired but determined Vinton boys fighting up to the last minute. CAPTAIN DONALD MACKIE, Guard Captain Mackie played his fourth year of basketball this season. Up to the middle of this season he had been kept at standing guard. But with the discovery of Dog Gallaher he was shifted to running guard, and by his well-timed dribbling and passing speeded up the offense. It is well to remember his years of faithful service at stand- ing guard where, by his fighting spirit, he gave all that he had, but received little glory. He covered himself with glory in the Sectional tournament, and Mack was one of the best captains Vinton ever had. ELDON MACKIE Guard Eldon, together with Young, Abernathy, Markham, Hank Gordon and Rene Whip- ple, is expected to take a prominent part in future State tournaments. Vinton is for- tunate in having such good freshman material. LYLE GALLAHER Guard Dog was another sensation of the year. Making the first team just before the county tournament, he played with such coolness and kn-owledge of the game that he was largely responsible for our success during that tournament. Lyle's favorite po- sition is standing guard and next year should see him at his best. ALVIN MILFS Guard Alvin, who was a substitute forward the previous year, found himself at running guard and helped materially in our successful season. Worked well with Capt. Mackie on defense, and his dribbling on offense started our team toward the basket. Could be depended on to slip in a basket every once in a while. His loss by graduation will BILLY MCINTYRE Forward Billy's rise in athletics was meteor-like, for last year he was only a third-string man. Developing into one of the most dependable men on the team this year is a record to be proud of. Bill, although small, was a fast thinker and always carried out the orders of the coach. Dopesters say that next year will find him going at top speed. Although always cooperating with the team, if the occasion demanded it, he could locate the loop. The best foul shooter on the squad. DONALD FARIS Center Don, although one of the smallest centers in the state, was a clever basket-shoot- ing man. Don could dribble, pivot, and pass to perfection. Noted for stopping the opponents in the center of the floor because he could intercept dribbles and follow the ball like a hawk. With Gordon he led the team in scoring. Local fans will never forget his last basket against Traer, which tied the Sectional tournament. EARL GORDON Forward Earl, commonly known as Bill, played his third year for Vinton. During this time he was one of the leading scorers on the Purple and Gold quintet. A clever dribbler, Bill could frequently slip past the rear guard for a counter. His sensational basket- shooting made him a marked man in the latter part of every season. Bill's loss will CHESTER GOOD Forward As last year's Junior High School star, Chester was expected to give a good ac- count of himself. He played more than half the time and ended the season with a sensational finish. A clever dribbler, clean basket-shooter, and a fighter, Chester should cause plenty of grief to future opponents of Vinton High. be keenly felt. be keenly felt. lun ViN'roN Aizaow ron N1Nu'rignN llnxnican AND 'l'w1sN'rY-F1 1924 Track Season After a lapse of several years, Vinton High in the spring of 1924, again decided to have a track team. Because of the lapse of time track material, especially in the field events, was somewhat lacking. After a month of diligent practice, the boys journeyed to Traer on the fifth of May to test their prowess on the cinder path. The team made a good showing at this meet, taking third place by reason of the efforts of Cecil Wright and John Primmer, who took first and second places, respectively, in the mile rung Leo Parcel, who took first in the broad jump and second in the 100-yard dashg Leslie Wilson, who tied for second in the high jump: and Fred Kruger who tied for second in the pole vault. After this showing at Traer, followers of the team began to forsee the county track championship as belonging to Vinton High. On May 12, 1924 in connection with the first annual Benton County Play Day, the High School track meet was held. Before a crowd of 9,000 Vinton, by placing in practically every event. managed to defeat their old rival, Belle Plaine, thus winning the silver trophy for the County Track Championship. The final score of the four highest teams of the nine represented is as follows: Vinton, 3353 Belle Plaine, 3051 Shellsburg, 24V2g Keystone 21. Kruger was high point winner for Vinton, taking first in the 120-yd. high hurdles, tieing for second in the pole vault, and taking third in the 220-yd. low hurdles. Par- cel won first in the 220-yd. dash and second in the 100-yd. dash. Primmer won first in the mile run. Wilson tied for first in the high jump. The mile relay was won by Bergen, Bowers, Primmer and Jackson. The "Never say die" spirit which characterizes all Vinton High athletes in their contests was instilled by Coach Ray Lamb a11d he deserves much credit for the showing of the track team. t YY in VINTON ARROW Fon N1Nn:'rl5i1N IIUNDRED AND IWENTY-F1 .IVXIUH l'llAMl'lUNS Girls' Athletics . .. , .. . ,.

Members from each class were chosen as representatives, besides those who volunteered. The first preliminary was held in the auditorium and from the twenty-five, four were chosen from the oratorieal and humorous, and because of a tie five from the dramatic. Those chosen from the three divisions were: Dolores Hall, Mary Collins, Della Meister and Elsie Mussman, in the humorous, Louis Con- ter, YVilma Adams, Hayes Miller and Dorothy Scott in the dramaticg Keith lvoodhouse, James Hackerson, Melvin Shortess as a substitute for Helen Har- rison. A triangular contest was held with Greene and Cedar Falls. lt was found, when the scores were totalled, that a tie resulted, and according to previous agreements, Greene won the contest, since they had more firsts. Vinton entered contestants at the county contest held at Keystone besides the preliminary state contest at Traer, and at both places made a creditable showing. THE V1N'roN ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-rlvx Girl Reserve On the evening of February twenty-third, the girls of Lincoln High School were entertained by the women of the faculty at a Colonial Party as the opening function of what has developed into a Girl Reserve Club. Miss Marie VVatters, Girl Reserve Secretary from Waterloo, who was an honor guest of the evening, explained the National Girl Reserve movement and its purpose in any high school, with especial emphasis on the possibility of organization in Vinton. As a result, in a few weeks temporary officers were elected by the girls, and a constitutional committee, after careful study formu- lated the following purposes: 1. To develop a greater spirit of co-operation, friendliness and good sportsman- ship among the girls. 2. To increase our desire to be honest, loyal and kind to our associates, thus im- pr-oving general school spirit. 3. To be more earnest in our purpose to promote Christian living in the world. One hundred and thirty-five girls signified their intention of furthering this purpose, and were recognized as members of the National organization in an effective service on April second. Plans for school and community improve- ment have been made with the hope that this organization may be of real value to Vinton High School.

JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET Members of the class of '25 were guests of '26 at the Junior-Senior ban- quet on May 15, 1925. In the Oriental atmosphere of miniature Mt. Fujiyamas from whose crat- ers the incense of far-away Japan rose, the guests were taken on an imaginary trip up Mt. Fujiyama. Tiny umbrellas indicated each one's place a11d dainty la11te1'ns contained the following toast program: "Rickishas are Off," "Half NVay Up Rickisha Stop," "Hang Tight! Earthquake Threatens," and "The Top is Reachedf' THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE GLEE CLUB OPERETTAS , It has been the custom for the high' school Glee Clubs to give an operetta every year. Since there were so many talented singers in Vinton High School, it was decided to organize two girls' Glee Clubs, a Freshman-Sophomore and Junior-Senior. Two operettas were produced under the direction of Miss Doris Palmer, to whom due credit for this Success is given. The Fl0SllIil2Ill-SODll0lllOl'Q Club gave "The Feast of the Little Lanterns" on March 10, 1925, with the following cast: Prmcess Chun ............................ ....

Mr. Balcar thought we ought to extend some kind of greeting to the "Freshies" and new teachers, so we proceeded to have a reception about three o'clock one Friday afternoon. He arranged the program as follows: Opening Welcome ............................................. Supt, Vernon Welcome of Old Teachers to New Teachers and Freshmen .... Miss Wadsworth Welcome to New Students ................................ Alberta Thompson Vocal Solo ......... ............. ........... A n na Noble Response from New Teachers .... ................ M r. Nill Response from New Students ............................ Raymond Stevenson Piano Solo ....................................................... Miss Hoyt After the program had been completed, a few "Sophs" 'brought in some ice cream cones for us to devour. Most of the "Freshies" and teachers sneaked two, but as long as they were so innocent about it, nothing was said. After giving the "Big V" the new class was admitted into full membership of V. H. S. CHRISTMAS PROGRAM It has been the custom, in years past for the High School to have a Christmas program just before vacation. This year the program was especially good, through the help of both students and teachers. The program follows: Reading ....................... ........................

THE VINTON ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE THE NEVV CO-ED On December 13, "The New Co-ed" was given in the auditorium by a cast chosen from the entire student body. A neat sum was realized, which went toward financing the 1925 ARROW. The theme of the play was the arrival of a new student at college, her reception, her trials, and how they terminate. The players were as follows: Letty Wills, a new student from a small town ..... .... A lberta Thompson Madge S'tevens, Letty's friend and companion ..... ..... G race Parzybok Estelle Doolittle, a spoiled beauty .................................... Grace McElroy Punch Doolittle, her work-hating brother ..............................

ORCHESTRA CONCERT Few people realize the talent V. H. S. has along musical lines, but they certainly found out when the High School Orchestra gave a concert on Thursday, February 5, 1925. Much of the success of the Orchestra is due to the untiring efforts of Miss Doris Palmer, the director, who has improved it greatly. We wish the Orchestra every success in future years, and hope that each member may further his or her talent. Miss Palmer was assisted in the program by her brother, Mr. H. G. Palmer, la very accomplished musician. The Program follows: March-"America's Finest" -- ........... -- "Serenade" ................. ................

THE V1NroN ARROW FOR NINRTBEN HUNDRED AND TWRNTY-FIVE Vinton High School as "Abe" Sees It What is all of the noise about? I only wish I could turn my head. But in a few minutes it will come drifting up to my listening ears. I wonder why the High School students think I cannot see and hear things? But then, I don't suppose they know I was given this power because l have a place in the school named after me. Though I cannot turn my head I can see Curly Walensky and Chester Good having a good time in the library at the right of the assembly. Once when I saw Grace Parzy and Bill Gordon studying industriously, I could not understand how they had both become so ambitious in such a short time. I discovered the cause. Mr. Balcar was standing in his office looking into the assembly through the window. Everyone knows that Billy Mclntyre is bashful, but I didn't imagine he would blush so furiously while merely being "bawled out" by Mrs. Luckey. ll have learned my slang from members of the faculty as well as from the student b-odyj. Helen Parzy has such an active mouth that I can hear almost everything she says. I learned from her the other day that Mary Collins tried measuring her length, head first, on the stairs leading from the assembly. In her attempt to regain a more suitable position she grabbed some bashful Freshman boy's ankle, greatly embarras- ing the owner. When she finally got to her feet, her books were scattered all over the stairs, her dress was too high to be comfortable, she had a black smear across one cheek, and her glasses were hanging rakishly from one ear over the tip of her nose. , I can tell you I almost fell out of my frame one afternoon after school when I heard Mrs. Luckey congratulating Ornery Markham for not having to stay after school. I was very much surprised at the various "fads," as I heard them called. I'm sure Mrs. Lincoln, while still young, never wore a big ribbon bow around her ankle, and I am positive that I never let my socks hang around my ankle, let alone pulling my trousers up as high as possible as John Whitney insists upon doing. The other day after Otto Stueck and Lucille Rife had been yelling way across the assembly at each other, Lucille walked up to the desk and innocently asked why she had t-o stay a half hour after school. I don't know whether I am "dumb" or not but I couldn't catch the joke when 1 heard that Donald Mackie had taken Clara Easterday to the show the other night. Perhaps it is because I don't know Don. It was rumored about school that Mr. Balcar took Miss Irvine to see the Coe- Cornell basketball game. I don't doubt that Mr. Balcar regretted this as Coe lost to Cornell, and I don't think he has yet heard the last of it from Miss Irvine. I heard quite a bit of talking about Florence Mohn and Bert Williams at the first of the year, but now the tune has changed to Florence Mohn and "T. D.," whoever that is. Do you know I coudn't see why every-one laughed one day when Mr. DeYoe said, "I haven't taken Physics for a long time." I wish I knew the joke. I understand that Vinton High Sch-ool has an excellent basketball team 'besides a fontball team, a declamatory, debating and stock-judging team, a science club, glee clubs and a Girl Reserve organization. I can assure you that I couldn't have a better, finer school named in my honor than the Lincoln High School of Vinton, Iowa. Corinne Martin '27. An Ideal Class A breathless hush came over the class-room as the principal, a tall, handsome man in gray swayed magnificantly up to the desk, carrying a lighted candle and a phonograph record, which he placed carefully, almost neatly, on the pile of books be- fore him. Apparently he had some difficulty in reading the poorly written names in his dainty little lavender record bzok. Finally, he slammed it down on the table and re- quested everyone absent or tardy to raise his hand. Strange tn say everyone was present. Tha recitation began, after Donald Mackie's new sweater had been commented on. Since the lesson was on the French Revolution, the discussion opened, as was TH E VINTQN ARROW FOR NINETEEN HUNDRED AND TWENTY-F IVE customary, with the art of bobbing hair. This the principal knew little about and ad- mitted it, strange as it may seemg so, after a few wise cracks the recitation pro- gressed. Dolores Hall could stand it no longer. Curiosity overwhelmed her. She must find out what the phonograph record and candle were for, so she began asking questions, absurd ones of cou1'se, but she finally got results. The principal demonstrated with these implements how frogs can see at night. With a disappointed, "I thought as much," Dolores shrugged her shoulders and began making it uncomfortable for her neighbors with her new red pencil. But Thomas Donnelly couldn't understand the principal's ex- planation. When asked why, he blushingly replied he couldn't see any frogsg so the explanation was gone over again. Thomas, deciding there must be no frogs, graciously admitted the principal dumb, turned around, and went to sleep. Dolores was becoming discouraged. Everyone around her was either asleep or too dumb to jump. Herman was her last resort. When she picked up her book to knock him out, he gratefully took it from her with many thanks and used it for a pil- low. Dolores, together with the few remaining awake, then sailed gaily off for dream- land. When the whole class was asleep, Mr. Balcar tiptoed silently down to the office and resumed a prolonged telephone conversation, punctuated here and there by heart- felt sighs. Dorothy Scott '27 About the Senior Pictures "March lst, the limit," announced Mr. Eddy Terr one August day in January, "for them there seniors to become phocussed before the cannon of the fotygraferf' The words struck fear and consternation in the hearts -of the various members of the afore- mentioned class, whose spirits were already ebb-low. This deadly fear soon vanish- e:'l and as if in response to the Eddy Terr's words of wisdom, our local sheiky freak Al- xin Milfs journeyed, the following day to the fotygrafter to be "took." After three sittings" and in one look at the proofs our heroes' hope and kurage left. The moment Solemon be held himself in all his glory was comparatively tame to this-only with opposite effects. When the finished product was returned and the w-ondering seniors be held the piteous spectacle-terror ran thru the class and there was a lull at the foty- grafter's studio. I Then in a week or so a few demure little maidens such as Irene Goldman, and Addelaide Quackinbush, and L. C. Mussman ventured forth. It developed that Elsie took such an extreme fondness for her carrycature that she distributed them out in dozen lots to innocent, unsuspecting individuals. Then to make things wuss, the realization came, to several of the more intelligent, that Feb. is a short munth-and the results were trajik. Don Mackie was so overcome with trying to look beautiful and feel natural while Helen Rundall was occupied trying to feel beautiful and look natural that neither fully realized when they were "shot." Then Lulu Wriggled so much that hers were quite like morning pitcures. Otto was nervous but he Stuck until the fotygrafter told him that it was the best he could do, considering the subject. But these were only qfew of the physiogimies that the helpless camera had to un- knowingly contend with. The end of the short but memorable month found the fotygrafter in the hospital following a nervous breakdown and partly conscious, always mentioning horrible faces in his ravings. But last and far from least all the rodents and vermin have been banished from the homes of our worthy classmates by a spell more profound than the "Pied ,Piper of Hamelin"-namely a row of exchanged pictures of these beloved Seniors, gracing all the pian-0 tops, dressers, tables, not to mention some that are securly tucked away in drawers. In closing we wish to thank Websters abridged and unabridged dictshunarys for the corrected spellings and most sincerely praise Miss Patton for her sentance forms and structures to which we most untiringly adhered to and will now dedicate this peace of literatoor to her memory.
