HE Muncie High School Annual is the first annual evei
written by the students ot' this school, although many
other papers have been composed and published. Since it has
been made possible to attend one ot' the finest High Schools in
the state, we have attempted in this annual to impart to the
public the progress of' work in each department and a detailed
history of' the students life during the past year. The Stall' has
tried to make this a true and memorable account of' all the
merits of the school year of 1915-16 and in fact of all preceding
years, which will ever be fresh in our memory. This annual is
the result of the ever increasing spirit and enthusiasm which is
arising in our school. VVe believe that this book is worthy of
its name and the effort worthy ot' its cost. VVe hope that this
example may be followed in successive years and that the stu-
dents in other days may be able to improve upon our accom-
plishment. The Stall' wishes to thank all those who have given
aid in compiling this annual. VVe are especially grateful to the
business men of' Muncie who have, by their liberality in adver-
tising in these pages, made our undertaking financially possible.
Ot' the public we beg kindly indulgence toward any errors which
may appear in this our first annual. May this book of M. H. S.
afford a pleasant hour to all its readers and recall to many
some happy event of their school days!

MERLIN 'S PROPHECY
N his way to the queen's apart-
ments, bearing to her the dia-
monds which he had won in nine hard
fought tournaments, Launcelot was ac-
costed by Merlin.
"Dost thou carry the jewels to the
queen?" asked the old magician sternly.
Launcelot's only answer was an im-
patient effort to turn away.
"It is as I feared," continued Merlin,
"but my son, in giving the jewels to
the queen, thou dost only lose them,
for they are destined to be worn only
by the fairest and purest in the land."
Wherewith Merlin passed on through
the corridor, and Launcelot hastened
to the queen, whom he found on her
balcony, overlooking the river.
But tidings of Launcelot's affair with
the lily maid had reached the ears of
the jealous queen, and his reception
was frigid indeed. He humbly pre-
sented her with the jewels, which she
took, continually reproaching him for
Then Guinivere angrily flung the
diamonds over the railing of the bal-
cony, but they fell,-not into the river
below, but onto a soft, fluffy bit of lace.
but instead he saw a wonderful, dra-
pery hung barge, on which was a
flowery hier. But more amazing still
was the form of a beautiful young
girl, lying on the barge, and whom
Launcelot recognized as Elaine, the lily
maid of Astolat, who had grieved to
death for him.
He rushed down the steps and out
to the barge where many courtiers had
And as Elaine's lifeless body was
borne with great ceremony into the
castle, Launcelot saw that three of his
precious jewels had fallen to her pillow.
Amid the jolting, the two smallest
diamonds settled just above her cheeks
as sparkling tear drops upon her love-
ly, placid face, and the largest diamond
found its way into her golden hair, and
shone there as the most fitting gift and
coronet that Launcelot could bestow
And Launcelot felt ashamed to think
that he had not given the jewels to her
who alone was worthy.
So Merlin's prophecy was fulfilled,
for Launcelot had lost the diamonds,
and she who was the fairest and purest
in the land at last wore the gems of
horror stricken to
see this wanton sacrifice of his gift,
THE BOYS' VICTORY
Listen my friends, and you shall hear, '
Of the debate with the girls, the boys had this year.
girls were handsome, you may have been told,
the boys, Oh! how brilliant, how brave, and how bold.
girls, well they talked with much gabble and prattle,
the boys, the brave fellows, they surely did battle.
sad, very sad, ,tis the girls that I pity,
debating with boys, is a foolish absurdity.
girls they may talk with much hustle and fuss,
the boys with their valor, such stuff they can crush,
what was the outcome? You ask, to be sure.
Well the boys, they did win, like brave men of yore.
While the girls, poor things, walked sadly away.
Vowing to win on some other day.
-Joseph R. Wiley.
TO THE BASKETBALL TEAM OF 1915-1916
There's a team of great renown,
In an Indiana towng
'Tis made up of High School students
Wlio were picked with care and prudence.
This team is down at Muncie,
lnour fine old Hoosier state.
Coach Beck has trained so thoroughly,
These players are just great.
They go into a conflict
With purpose firm, to try
To bring to us great honorg
To dear old Muncie High.
Mr. Beck has coached this team.
'Tis said he made them good
From "poor material"-the best there isg
And see the tests thcy've stood!
Carl Redding is the Captain,
That lad you know so wellg
He won for us so many games
His deeds we love to tell.
He's an athlete lithe and strong,
He's almost six feet tall.
He's center on this famous team,
And admired by one and all.
Sam Friedman is a shining starg
So many points he scores,
His skill is shown in every game,
Though he play on foreign floors.
He's a "shark" in mathematicsg
I'm pretty sure 'tis true,
That surely was what helped him
WVhen. such splendid goals he threw.
Hugh Ellis is a forward,
And I have heard it said,
He cares naught for a maiden
For he fears she'd turn his head.
Though in the class-room he's called "Hugh',
"Dick" is his common name,
He's famed for throwing foul goals,
And he's essential in a game.
Lea Sturgeon is a guard to fear:
He plays a "stellar" game.
Although he has trouble with his math,
It doesn't hurt his fame.
Perhaps it may be true,
But this is truth for certain
He's a splendid lad clear through.
Some maidens say he's handsome,
A guard that's ever staunch and strong,
Has Fred Oliver for his name,
He is a splend'id player
And for great power is famed.
He's not only quite a favorite
Among his student friends:
But instructors think he's splendid,
In all classes he attends.
Harry WVarren is a guard of strength
His fame will reach the poles.
He breaks so many passes,
His opponents can't make goals.
His face is always wreathed in smiles,
He "grins through thick and thing"
One seldom sees him downcast,
But he guards with vigor grim.
Ronald Craig is famous
For the splendid games he's played,
While active on this wondrous teamg
His glory never'll fade.
I-le is splendid in his floor-work
At center does he play
He is a star in every game,
This fact one can't gainsay.
.lohn Dawson plays at forwardg
A splendid athlete he.
He was '16's Junior President,
So he's popular too, you see.
He has now the highest honor
Can be given lass 01' ladg
'Tis "Editor-in-Chief, the First,"
For our Annual, and we're glad.
Now altogether, these eight boys,
Do surely 'rouse our prideg
To them is due great honor
For they've won it on every side.
Our principal bestowed on them,
A title all hold dear.
They're "The Knights of Muncie High Scho
For a knight knows naught of fear.
They make a formidable army
ln their armor--purple and white,
With M. H. S. for their coat-of-arms,
And their trusty sword is Might.
Let us hope they can fight life's battles,
Applying the Golden Ruleg
Conquering as a knight should do,
Remembering Muncie High School.
--Jessie Ruth Jerome, '17.
HE fly commonly known as the
"harmless insect" is one of the
worst carriers of disease. We have no
more right to harbor llies than to
spread poison in our community. This
movement of a "flyless Muncie" must
begin with every individual and clean-
liness must be the watchword.
The house fly will not be eliminated
until everyone fully appreciates the
danger and does his or her part in
avoiding it. He "lives, moves and has
his being" in filth and it is his only
hope of existence. REMOVE ALL
FILTH. When one fly produces a
thousand flies in one season, we see
the necessity of going after the first
flies that appear. One fly killed means
a million iunhatched.
The tremendous importance of the
campaign against the fly has never
been fully appreciated by those whose
co-operation is necessary to rid our
homes of the death-carrying insect.
One city in the United States has had
seven thousand people to die from
what physicians say was the buzzing
The Boy Scouts of America have
been the means of the destruction of
many flies. They have been aided by
the Camp Fire Girls. In olden times
children were taught little verses about
the fly, but the children of today should
follow the example set by the Boy
Scouts and Camp Fire Girls in making
When he spoils our naps and shows
his love for the good things we eat,
we are annoyed and drive him away.
In reality, the sight of a fly should
arouse us to instant action and we
should only be satisfied with its de-
struction. Destroy it and lose not a
moment in doing it.
Be clean and you will be flyless.
THE CITY PEST
In side the filthy garbage can
The city pest doth breed,
The fly, an enemy to man,
The antagonist whom all should heed.
And diseases caused by him
Are what man does not need.
His wings are crisp and black and long,
His face is black and tan,
And on his legs stick all the filth
For he eats whate'er he eang
And thinks he owes to all the world,
To do harm to every man.
Week in, week out, from morn till night
The fly around you dwells,
The babies he delights to pest,
And sorrow from him wells,
Upon the sick he loves to step,
The doctor, the result soon tells.
And children sitting in the school
Look out at the open door,
They see him darting through the air,
And hear his buzzes roar,
And catch the germs that from him fly
Like chaff from a threshing floor.
He goes on Sunday to the church.
Upon bald heads he skates,
He hears the parson pray and preach
About the pearly gates,
He knows he cannot enter there,
For a moment his glee abates.
Chase him, catch him, swat him,
As onward through school you gog
Each morning kill all flies you see
And to McAnney go,
If you can one hundred get,
Youlll earn a nickel so.
-Gladys L. Arthur.
T was a cold, blustery day on the
twelfth of March in the year
eighteen hundred and ninety-nine, that
I made my first appearance in this
world. At that time I looked more
like a boy than a girl, and my head
was perfectly bald. To my mother's
indignation people would say to her,
"Oh, isn't he a fine little fellow."
My early life was much like that of
nearly everyone else. I had all of the
children's diseases, including measles,
mumps, whooping cough, and chicken-
pox. I had mumps and whooping cough
at the same time and I can distinctly
remember how painful it was when I
tried to cough with my cheeks puffed
out. I must have been a very lively
child, for my mother has often said
that she didn't draw a free breath till
after my fourth birthday. And who
with a troublesome child who drinks
ink, chews moth-balls, follows gypsy
wagons and does innumerable other
dangerous things of that sort, can
doubt her? But she left off her wor-
rying about three years too soon. For
at the age of seven I became seriously
ill with diphtheria and was not ex-
pected to recover. When I was con-
valescent my mother used to hold me
up to the window so that I could spell
out the word diphtheria on the red
card just outside the door. How proud
I was of that card, and how I cried
when it was taken down.
My school life in the grades passed
uneventi'ully. At the age of fourteen
I entered Muncie High School, and
have now attained the dignity of being
a High School Sophomore.
THE BUSY FLY
How doth the wicked little fly
Improve each shining hour:
He gets his feet in eve1'y pie
And in the milk so sour.
How skillfully he walks the wall,
How well he tracks the dirt,
And labors hard to store it all
The world with his disease to grit.
In works of labor and of crime
He's always busy too,
For Satan finds some mischief still
For idle feet to do.
-From Isaac YVatts.
Down the hall comes Mr. Turpin,
Round the corner mischief's lurkin',
Does the worthy professor see?
Oh dear, no, that cannot 'bel
Nothing escapes his eagle eye.
VVe all look just as good as pic,
Do you suppose he suspects a thing?
If he does, what will it bring?
Next day this is all forgotten,
We are agreed that our plans were rotten,
But a1'e we worried a little bit?
Well. that ll'llISIII,I 'be thought of we admit.
And now the time for cards has comeg
Oh my, but its dreadful to be dumb!
Hut oh, what is this I see?
My interest is cut to seventy-three,

HE Muncie Athletic Association
was the g1'eatest success ever,
starting out with Mr. E, J. Borton as
Secretary and Treasurer, and Hap
Moody as Booster and with these at
the helm, something had to come. Aft-
er a few weeks work they brought the
membership up to a mark twice as
great as ever before. This surely was
a wonderful year for the athletic asso-
ciation of the local school. By so many
joining, the officials were able to make
so low a price to its members that most
anyone was able to see the games. The
association donated fifty dollars to the
curtain fund and also bought for the
first squad the best and classiest sweat-
ers that one could wish for any place.
The first thing they have promised for
next year is bleachers for the gym,
then won't we be right in class with
the rest of the big schools!
Athletics in the Muncie High School
under the direction of Coach Beck,
started out with a spirit that has been
increasing in volume and momentum.
This is the first year that all the stu-
dent body has offered assistance to the
cause. After the affairs of the school
were well under way last fall the call
for soccer recruits was issued which
met with instant approval, and class
teams were soon organized. The first
game was between the Sophs and the
Freshmen and ended with the second
year men on top. Then the Juniors and
Seniors clashed and the veterans of
the high school showed up the Juniors.
But when the championship was
played off the lines were crowded with
many loyal rooters, in spite of the very
disagreeable Weather, and when the
two teams went on the field-the sec-
ond and fourth year bunches-to de-
termine the championship of the
school, enthusiasm ran high on ali
sides. The game was very fast and
hotly contested. Each player did his
best in order to win. When the game
was over the Sophs had won and they
now hold the buntinguntil the soccer
series of next fall. The Sophs seem
to have a fast bunch this year for they
also won the inter-class basketball
The various soccer teams were pilot-
ed by the following captains: Fresh-
men, Ray Vandagriffg Sophomores,
Harry Warreng Juniors, Hugh Ellis,
and the Senio1's, Fred Oliver.
THE M. H. S. BASKETBALL TEAM
HE Muncie High School basket-
ball team, which was chosen
from the numerous candidates to de-
fend the Purple and White, surely was
worthy of the colorsg White standing
for purity and fairness, while the Pur-
ple stands for truth and honor.
Working in harmony with Coach
Beck they accomplished more than any
other basketball team representing the
Muncie High School for many years.
By going through steady machine-
like maneuvers for three nights a week
and by nothing short of downright hard
work the team comes forth at the end
of the season with a record for which
we make apologies to no one. A record
which shows what they are made of, a
record of winning fourteen games out
of seventeen, losing two games to the
giant squad from Kokomo and the
third to the giant representatives Ol'
the small town of Cicero. By being a
winning team they had the whole stu-
dent body back of them and by the
middle of the season they were the talk
of the state. They knew what the
school wanted and expected and they
delivered the goods. And to show its
appreciation for the work done, the
High School Athletic Association pre-
sented the playe1's with the finest
sweater coats that money could buy.
Our team was composed of the clean-
est, sportsmanlike boys that ever went
out on a gym floor, and anyone seeing
them ill action will vouch for the same.
They always showed the same gentle-
manly spirit away t'ro1n home as they
did at home, but were not to be im-
posed upon by anybody. Owing to
this they were the favorites at the dis-
trict meet at Anderson March 5th and
6th, and cheers rang through the house
whenever the local boys went on the
tloor, even after the stern, cruel hand
of Fate placed defeat upon the Muncie
boys. Well, so much for that noble
squad as a whole, we will now look at
them from the individual standpoint.
Carl Redding, the captain, kept
his team in perfect unison from
start to finish. He was chosen as one
of the forwards on the second All-
Sam Friedman, the star forward of
the team, has more grit, speed and ac-
curacy about him than you will find
anywhere. He would always come out
of the skirmish with the ball in his
hand, ready for action.
Hugh Ellis, the other forward on the
team, has won the respect of the whole
school for his regular and steady play-
Lea Sturgeon, the running guard,
seemingly had every man on the floor
covered at once.
Fred Oliver, the stonewall defense
t'or the team, couldn't be moved and
was afraid of no one. He made the
all-sectional back guard at the meet.
Although short, he was the best man
for his inches.
Ronald Craig was the man of the
hour on any position and will be re-
membered forever for the game he put
up against New Castle at Muncie.
John Dawson was one of the best
little forwards seen this season, but
owing to lack of weight, he was forced
to hold a sub position.
Harry Warren, the big and husky,
had the art of getting in the way at
the most opportune times.

THE SECOND TEAM
To the second team of the Muncie
High School basketball squad we owe
a good deal of praise, for they showed
themselves victors and ended with a
thousand per cent record. Out-classed
only by a lack of years of experience
this second string bunch always showed
the big boys a fast and classy game:
there were no slouches on this team-
every man was on the job at every
game. Some fast teams were sched-
uled for them and the boys taught all
of them a few lessons in the basket-
hall art. The teams defeated by our
second squad were Pendleton, two
games: Marion, two games.
The members of the team are: Cap-
tain, Slateryg Barkman Cboth Senior
and Juniorjg Shewmaker: Grunden:
Hettel: Hummel and Abbott Johnson.
THE GIRLS' ATHLETIC REPORT
N the year of 1915-16 the students
of the Muncie High School were
moved from the old High School build-
ing to the magnificent new one. A
gymnasium was practically an un-
known thing to the girls until after the
removal into the new building. There
the largest gymnasium in the city of
Muncie was opened to them. Many of
the girls were losing interest in school
but when the opportunity of using the
gymnasium five times a week came,
their interest revived. Then athletics
claimed the attention of every girl. The
period for the gymnasium was always
looked forward to with great eager-
ness. The gymnasium work consisted
of free exercises, which made the girls
realize that their muscles and bones
were "rusty:" gymnasium folk danc-
ing, apparatus work

The Eighth Grade girls felt they were
an even match for the Senior girls and
which the girls had "stacks" of fun.
Basketball was the game that was
most eagerly awaited by the majority
of the girls. The first real game was
played in the High School gymnasium
between the women of the High School
faculty and the girls. Much to the
sorrow of the proud Seniors, they
were defeated by a score of 16 to 5.
A team of five girls was selected
from each of the five years represented
in the .Iunior-Senior High School. Con-
tests were held between the various
teams. On Tuesday and Friday of
each week two or three games were
played by the teams until all had
played each other. Several of the
teams were quite confident that the
victory would be theirs but each team
in its turn was forced to how to the
strength of the Senior team. The 1'e-
sults of the contests were as follows:
Teams 1Von Score Teams XV0n Score

a second game was asked for. The
Seniors consented to play because they
thought the Eighths were not satisfied
with one defeat: a second defeat was
theirs by a score of 7 to 8.
Miss Jost, the girls' physical direc-
tor, announced that the games "hock-
ey" and "indoor baseball" would be
introduced after the basketball season
E are not going to take the pages
necessary to tell you the great
good Coach Beck has done for our
school athletics, the basketball team
shows the whole thing in a nut-shell.
He came to us from way down East-
to be precise, from the little town of
YValnut Grove, New Jersey. The three
things for which he stands are:
1. Gentlemanly conduct.
2. Right living.
3. Clean sports.
OUR PHYSICAL DIRECTOR
MONG the very first things that
was necessary to make the gym-
nasium of the Muncie High School
complete was to find competent direc-
tors. In this search for the girls' di-
rector, some one, the girls know' not
whom, located at the Normal College
of the North America Gymnastic
Union, at Indianapolis, Indiana, a true
athlete by the name of Mildred Jost.
Miss Jost spent three and one-half
years in school in her home city, Chi-
cago, Illinois. She then went to ln-
dianapolis and entered the Normal
College where she spent two years in
training for a gymnasium teacher.
In 1915 she accepted the position as
physical director of the girls of the
Muncie High School. The work which
Miss Jost presented to the girls is very
interesting and every girl was willing
to do her part. Field day is to be ob-
served in June, 1916, by the high
school, and by the careful training,
great results are anticipated in broad
jumping, high jumping, far throwing
The girls of the Muncie High School
one and all duly appreciate having
training given by such an able person
as Miss Jost.

HE Science Club which has long
been one of the most interesting
clubs of the school has just closed a
very successful year. The club 011.22111-
ized early in the fall and chose for its
officers, President, Fred Petty: Vice
P1'esident, Marshall Williams, Treas-
urer, Edna Wirtg Secretary, Twanette
Shireman. To represent the dilferent
departments a member for each de-
partment was selected. They were:
Lee Sutherlin, Chairmang Physics,
Martha Kramerg Electricity, Merwyn
Hunt, Physiology, Martha Leslie, and
Botany, Norman Nyce. The meetings
were well attended and did not lack in-
One of the features of the year was
an illustrated lecture given by Prof. E.
Barrett, State Geologist, on "Indiana
Beauty Spots." Other interesting talks
and illustrated lectures give11 were:
"Applied Electricity," Helen Warnerg
"Heating the High School," Harold
Beckettg "Magnetism," Edwin An-
drews, "The Electric Light Plant,"
Marshall VVilliams, and "Explosives,"
Mr. Bickel. The excellent music fur-
nished by the Music Committee added
greatly to the interest of the meetings.
The members of the Science Club are
already looking forward to a bigger
and better organization next year.

THE BOYS' DEBATING CLUB
HE Boys' Debating Club was or-
ganized January 26, 1916, under
the direction of Mr. Eikenberry. Dur-
ing the short time it has been in ex-
istence it has accomplished a number
of things. The debates and numerous
opportunities for open discussions en-
able every member to gain excellent
practice in the art of expressing him-
self in a clear, concise and forcible
manner. Frequent drills in parliamen-
t2l1'y law add greatly to the value and
interest of the meetings.
The meetings are held every Wed-
nesday night. For the formal debates
Mr. Eikenberry acts as critic. Under
his guidance the members have learned
some of the underlying principles of
the technique of debate. Mr. Jones,
one of the club's honorary members,
frequently attends the meetings and
offers much valuable advice and criti-

ELECTRICAL DEPARTM ENT
HlS is the lirst year that practical
electricity has been olt'ered.
in the Muncie High School. Every
elTort has been made to install in its
electrical labo1'atory the best appara-
tus on the market for educational pur-
poses. The machines, generators and
motors are ot' the types used in the
commercial world. The entire equip-
ment has been carefully selected with
the single idea ol' making the course
thorough and practical in every re-
There are three distinct courses ol'-
l'ered: the boys' course, intended pri-
marily for young men who expect to
lake a lll0l'C advanced course in col-
legeg the girls' course, and the night
ln the boys' electrical course the
training is designed to be broad and
general, introducing the principal
phases in electrical engineering. The
course consists of the theory under-
lying the principles ol' applied elec-
tricity and the application ot' these
principles by the performance ol' prac-
tical work such as is found in the shop
Since many ol' the girls ol' Muncie
High School had requested that an
electrical course he given for general
instruction in electricity, with empha-
sis on the domestic phase ol' the sub-
ject, the school added a girls' course in
electricity to the regular High School
cul'riculum. Lecture work is the chiel'
feature ol' this course. The laboratory
work consists of what is practical
from the girls' point of view.
Next tel'm we hope thc laboratory
will be in larger quarters. Muncie
lligh School will have the most power-
l'ul wireless station in the state, includ-
ing both wireless telegraphs and the
only wireless telephone in high school
equipment in the United States. This
equipment and the courses ol'l'ercd,
places Muncie High School lirst among
the secondary schools ol'l'ering prac-
tical training in electricity.

MECHANICAL DRAWING DEPARTMENT
HE Mechanical Drawing Depart-
ment of the Muncie High School
was founded at the beginning of the
fall term of 1907. In a small basement
room of the old building a class com-
posed of a few 913 boys, under the di-
rection of Mr. Rhoads, began the work.
The equipment was very poor. This
condition at the old temporary build-
ing was slightly improved. This de-
partment was placed upon a very prac-
tical and substantial basis.
The course is 11ow in charge of Mr.
Rhoads with Mr. Anthony and Miss
Cates as his assistants. Two large
rooms with all the modern drawing
equipment comprise the department.
The course is in co-operation with the
shops and is open to all students. The
work is started by the Eight Grade
pupils and the student can take this
work through the Senior year.
At present there are one hundred
and seventy students. The course cov-
ers geometric drawing, orthographic
ANUAI. Training is one of the
leading subjects of the Voca-
tional Department of the Muncie .Iu-
nior and Senior High School. There
are five rooms for housing this depart-
ment, namely, the forge room, machine
shop, stock room, assembling room,
and woodworking room. The forge
room and the machine shop have not
been equipped, but it is our hope that
they will be real soon.
The stock 1'o01n is about filled to its
capacity with lumber. In the assem-
blying room all the stains and con-
structed pieces are kept. The wood-
working room is at present equipped
with eighteen motor driven machines,
namely: thirteen lathes, one bandsaw,
one double saw, one jointer, one mor-
tiser, and one tool grinder. There are
thirty-two work benches in this room.
There are at present between two
hundred and two hundred and fifty
boys engaged in solne form of manual
training. The boys of the Eighth
Grade and the first half of the Ninth
Year are doing bench work. They are
making furniture, such as tabourets,
projections, penetration, machine draw-
ing, cabinet drawing, architectural and
modern gear designs. The aim of' this
course is to prepa1'e the student for a
thorough understanding and practical
idea of the actual work as it is carried
on in the factores. The Mechanical
Drawing Department of the Muncie
High School offers a large field for the
student desirous ot' obtaining an edu-
cation in this profession hy following
the working of actual practice.
llllllklll stools, chairs, library tables,
china cabinets, davenports, and many
other useful articles. In the last half
of the Ninth Year the boys take wood-
turning. In this work they make stock-
ing darners, gavels, candle sticks, tum-
blers, powder boxes, pedestals, nut
howls, mirrors, etc.
In the first half of the Tenth Grade
the boys take advanced turning and
pattern making. In this grade they
make anything under wood-tu1'ning
and patterns for jack screws, face
plates, l'l1'6illl toaslers, and several oth-
In the last halt' of the Tenth Grade
the boys take advanced pattern mak-
ing and foundry practice. In this work
they make some very difficult patterns
such as parts of lathes and motors.
They also get a little foundry work.
VVhen the boys become Juniors and
Seniors they take up iron work entire-
ly. In this work they mold the pat-
terns which they have made in the
Tenth Year and finish them ready for
he used, and this division will be
equipped with adding machines and
other office appliances. A general en-
richment ot' the stenography and book-
keeping courses is hoped for as well as
the introduction of commercial law
and a complete course in accountancy.
The department has had a wonder-
ful growth in the few years it has been
a part of the school, and from the ever
increasing interest shown in it will
undoubtedly increase in amount of
work olfered and number ot' students
enrolled until it is one of the most im-
HIS department has recently been
installed with full equipment in
room 114. The work is in charge ot'
J. W. Rhoads and consists of hand-
building, casting and pressing, throw-
ing, insize and inlay decoration, glaz-
ing and firing.
Though this work is offered only to
the more advanced students. the en-
rollment is already overtaxing the
room capacity, making larger quarters
necessary for the near future.
Pottery is a very interesting and
popular line of work being added to
the Art Department in a great many
High Schools throughout the country.
Mr. Rhoads is an experienced man
in this work having taught in the Ap-
plied Arts Training School, Chicago,
in connection with Prof. J. T. VVebb,
originator ol' the Webb Art Pottery.

but have an inherent love ol' music
and find a solace in the chorus.
ln the .lunior and Senior lligh School
the entire chorus consists ot' six hun-

take it as an elective subject.
The Girls' Semi-Chorus, sixty in
number, have made a feature of study-
ing Cantatas for women's voices. The
second semester, "Hesperus," by John
Hyatt Brewer, for three and four part
arrangements, was extensively studied.
The four part mixed choruses are
studying choruses of standard editions.
Some of them are taken from Ora-

OUR ORCH ESTRA
HREE years ago in the old build-
ing an orchestra was organized
in the High School under the direction
of Mr. A. li. Williamson. Although
this orchestra was lacking in members,
it was the beginning and foundation
of the orchestra we have this year. The
orchestra grew and was capable of
furnishing the music on all school oc-
casions and connnencements. During
these years this organization met twice
a week and received one-half a credit
The environment plays an important
part in the making of an individual or
an organization. At the beginning of
this year's work the orchestra was
somewhat. limited as to members. Up-
on entering our new quarters, the big-
ger, better, brighter surroundings so
inspired the students, that a very cred-
itable orchestra has been organized,
which played the full score to the oper-
etta, "Princess Cln'ysanthemum." The
Music Department hopes to maintain
its own instruments, in the near fu-
ture, and thus enlarge the orchestra
to a symphony orchestra.
The members are:
Pianist-Minnie C. Maier

of members ofthe orchestra. or- ulty and students to the dedication

ARMONY is a new course this
year, for which a full major
credit is given. For those who are
unacquainted with the subject let it
he said that it deals with the techni-
cality of music, is classed with math-
ematics, and in some schools is being
accepted as a mathematics credit. The
class is limited lo fifteen students, boys
v f-in ft
and girls both eligible, although the
class now consists of only twelve
girls. The complete course is given
within two years, the first dealing with
the principles of harmony, while the
second embraces such advanced work
as that needed by those who wish to
use music professionally.

THE GIRLS ' COUNCIL
HEN the pupils of the High School
and those of the Eighth Grade
were united into the Junior and Senior
High School in our beautiful new
building there were over five hundred
girls. Mr. Turpin decided that there
were too many girls for him to be re-
sponsible for, so appointed Miss Eliz-
abeth Kackley as Dean of Girls.
Miss Kackley at once saw that sl1e
must have some helpers. She appoint-
ed a group of eighteen girls, which was
called the "Girls' Council" as her aids.
All of the girls in school were then
divided into eighteen groups, each
group consisting of twenty-five girls
with one member of the Girls' Council
as the head of each group. The re-
sponsibility of the conduct of each girl
in that group was given into the hands
of the leader of that group.
Immediately after the organization
of this council activities were begun.
The leaders decided that something
must be done so that when girls were
ill in school they would have some
place where they might go to rest.
With this purpose in mind they decid-
ed to furnish the rest room. In a very
short time there was furnished a beau-
tiful room located at the south end of
the corridor of the main floor, called
the "Gir1s' Rest Room." The furniture
in this room is very beautiful and to
make the room more beautiful a Mun-
cie High School pillow, a beautiful
lamp and an oil painting have been
donated by the B. T. G. Club, Rether-
ford Brothers and Marie Griffith.
As there was no money to pay for
the furniture, the girls decided they
would pay for it. Each leader then set
to work to find some scheme by which
her group could raise ten dollars. In
order to obtain the money, various
kinds of sales and parties were held.
One of especial note was the party
given in the gymnasium by Group A
for all the girls in the school. An ad-
mission of as many pennies as the girl
was years old was charged.
Every girl has been benefitted by
this organization. It has aroused in
them a spirit of usefulness, comrade-
ship and helpfulness and caused them
to see some things in a different light
than they did before.

OHII M F
AGE FROM BALCONY
NGLISH is the most essential
course in High School. lt is the
language of the English speaking race,
and the language which every man,
woman and child in this country
should know. ln order that every per-
son may know English, we teach the
subject in our High School.
The course begins in the Freshman
year. In this year the first great step
is taken in teaching Spelling and Rhet-
oric. In this study we learn how to
form good English sentences and par-
agraphs, forms of discourse and letter
writing. In the Sophomore year Ex-
position is taken upg then oration and
last the delight of debating. Debating
is what most students enjoy. They
have permission to challenge fellow
students to a debate and some of the
hottest arguments are the results of
the challenge, especially in "Woman
Suffrage" debates when the girls say
"Yes," and the boys say "No,"
American literature is studied in the
first term of the Junior year, and the
beginning of English literature up to
the time of Puritanism, is taken up in
the latter part. In the latter course we
dwell in Shakespeare's country and
breathe Shakespearean air, and play
Shakespeare's plays and dream of
Shakespeare at night. He was a won-
derful man and everybody loves those
happy days when the life and works of
this great man are studied. After this
enjoyment, dignified Senior year
comes. ln this year we study Milton
and his great epic "Paradise Lost." It
is due to the teachings of the English
teachers ol' Muncie High School that
the students can know and understand
so well as to never forget the greatest
epic the world has ever produced. In
this course we also study English
poetry and it is here that we learn that
"Sooner or later that which is now life
will become poetry." The last months
of High School days are spent in study-
ing the essay and novel. We are taught
to judge which books are worth while
reading. lt is required that we report
on novels, and the greatest of all pleas-
ures is to illustrate a story by pictures.
Some questions have been brought
up as to whether English should be a
required subject in the future. Many
think that it would be best for those
who care for the subject to take it and
enjoy itg but if we wish to have good
citizens in this country we must have
a good English speaking race. For
this reason every student should be re-
quired to take English.
HE work of the History Depart-
ment extends throughout the five
years of the .Iunior and Senior High
School. The purpose of the work ot'
this department is not the cramming
of historical facts but the stimulating
of intelligent thought. The chief ob-
ject in view is preparation t'or citizen-
ship. This can best come through a
study of the origin and development
of the political, social and economic
problems which confront us today and
with which all of us are more or less
directly concerned. The History De-
partment attempts to provide this prep-
aration for intelligent citizenship by
leading the students to see that the
problems of today are the outgrowth
of past conditions, and that the prob-
lems of tomorrow will be the out-
growth ot' the conditions of today.
How wisely present and future prob-
lems will be solved depends upon how
well students of today learn the lessons
of the past. Herein lies the whole
province of the History Department.
Note books, map work, and reports
on assigned topics are required in all
courses. The High School library is
excellently equipped for history work.
Special emphasis is laid on political
development and social and economic
conditions and problems.
The Eighth Grade work covers the
national period of American historyg
the work of the Ninth Year comprises
Oriental, Greek and Roman historyg
the Tenth Year Medieaval and Modern
historyg the Eleventh Year English his-
toryg and the Twelfth Year American
history and Civics. There are at pres-
ent approximately 550 students in the
HE work ot' the Physics Depart-
ment is divided into six general
subjects: mechanics, heat, magnetism,
electricity, sound and light. The work
consists of recitations, lectures and
labatory experiments. These subjects
are treated in their various phases to
an extent which depends some upon
the strength of the class as a whole,
but more especially upon the strength
of the individual student. Especially
in the laboratory work, opportunity is
given for a student to do all the work
he is capable of doing, not hindered in
the least by the progress of the class
as a whole.
The text book used, Millikan Sc Gale,
"A First Course in Physics," is of the
most stable and conservative type, yet
an attempt is being made to make the
course practical. We use this type of
book because we do not believe in
practical physics for young students
without the theory as well.
The recent addition of some very
good commercial electrical instruments
has aided greatly in carrying out the
idea of practical physics.
It is the aim of the department to
give a double period for two consecu-
tive days, near the end of the term, to
the study of the laws and principles
learned as applied to the automobile.
The automobile is selected to study be-
cause it involves so many principles
of physics, because it is of common in-
terest and because today it demands

tion took place. The Chemistry De-
partment was moved t'ro1n the second
Itoor of the Mulberry street building
to the third tloor of the new building.
Here, in our commodious quarters, we
have everything that is essential to a
modern laboratory. Few colleges have
The course as it now stands is elec-
tive, open to Seniors. The fundamen-
tals of Chemistry are taught. Although
the course is an end in itself, it may
be used as a stepping stone to higher
NE year's work is olfered in the
Botany Department of the Mun-
cie High School. During this brief
time it is the aim of the Department
to impart to the student a love of na-
ture, an appreciation of plant life, and
a knowledge of the relationship of
plant life to his own.
Here the pupil is brought into direct
contact with the plants, and tlms he
learns to know them, instead of know-
ing of them. It is hoped that by ac-
curate observation there will be creat-
ed in the pupil an inquiring mind
which, later, will be an irresistible
stimulus to independent investigation.
The department has a 1'ecitation
room which will accommodate twenty-
eight pupils, a large laboratory, well
equipped, and a conservatory. In the
latter are conducted many interesting
experiments dealing with plant struc-
ture, function and environments.
N the beginning, when the school
board created the Muncie Central
Academy, fewer than fifty boys and
girls responded to the call, "Let there
be light." These few assembled in the
basement of the Universalist church
and were presided over by Miss Emma
Montgomery, afterwards Mrs. Emma
Mont. McRae. The course in mathe-
matics consisted of one year of arith-
metic tl"elter'sJ, one year of algebra
CRay'sD, one year of geometry --plane
and solid tDavies'J and one term of
About thirty years ago, when each
teacher had a roomful of pupils all day
and taught everything prescribed for
the grade in that room, the teachers of
the Ninth and Tenth year Grades start-
ed departmental work by the Tenth
Year teacher taking both Latin classes
and the Ninth Year teacher taking both
algebra classes. At that time two yea1's
of algebra were required.
The whole High School was put on
the departmental basis in 1892. The
present head of the Mathematics De-
partment taught all the classes of Math-
ematics as well as classes in several
other subjects. Miss Eve Kessler was
soon given work in the department and
continued there, a most efficient teach-
er until her death in 1904.
From the few gathered together in
the beginning has been evolved our
great Junior-Senior High School of'
over one thousand pupils and forty
teachers. The progress has been slow.
From the church basement we moved
to our own first home in 1873, a frame
building that was situated near what
is now the corner of Adams and
Franklin streets. The next move was
into the brick building which was de-
stroyed to make room for our present
magnificent structure. This move was
made in 1880. The next move was in-
to the Franklin building on North Mul-
berry street, then into the present
We now have six teachers in the
department and almost nine hundred
students. Our course consists of
f'ollowing: The 8B Grade finishes
Arithmetic: the 8A Grade reviews

gins Algebra: the 9B and 9A Grades
continue Algebra: the 10B and 10A

gebrag the 12B Grade studies Trigo-

Commercial Arithmetic. All mathe-
matics through 10A is required. All
pupils of good standing are advised
to take the elective work.
Neat work, accurate constructions,
truthful statements and analytic think-
ing are required. Are not all of these
things worth while?
VVe agree with Ruskin that, "Educa-
tion does not mean teaching people to
know what they do not knowg it means
teaching them to behave as they do not

The aim of the study of' Latin has
always been to provide the boy or girl
with an admirable discipline of mind,
to enlarge his mental horizon: to give
him a glimpse at least of' a 1'are and
fine culture, and to put him into a
fuller possession of' his native tongue,
for the greatest number of English
words is derived from the beautif'ul
and time-honored Latin. However, to

lie the most beautiful fields of scenery,
the knowledge of mythology, duty to
God and man.
The study of' Latin has had a prom-
inent place in our High School from
its foundation as far back as 1807.
The following teachers have taught
in the Latin Department during the
past thirty years: Mrs. VVill Youse
fMayme Moorejg Mr. Wm. Mastersg
Mr. Wellman Thrushg Mr. VValter Er-

sawg Miss Mabel Ansleyg Miss Lenore
Chevillon. The present teachers ot'
Latin are: Miss Emma Cammack, Miss
Emma Peters and Miss Adine Chilton.
The Latin Department has for many
years held a Latin banquet in the Hotel
Delaware for those who were taking
Latin at the time of graduation. This
has always been not merely a time-
honored custom, but one of the most
enjoyable of the commencement sea-
During the last year for the first time
in the history of our High School there

ODERN language has not always
been taught in the Muncie High
School. Only since the year 1899 has
German been in the curriculum of the
school. At first the courses in Ger-
man were open only to third and
fourth year students. As time passed
Latin or German work became a 1'e-
quirement t'or graduation and so Ger-
man courses were open to all students
as they enrolled in the school. The de-
mand for the language increased to
such an extent that when at the begin-
ning the services of only one teacher
were required, three are now employed.
The course in German offered in the
Muncie High School consists of four
years' work. The first three years are
optional with Latin and the fourth is
elective by students. The aim of the
course is threefold: C15 practical, C23
teclmical, C33 cultural. It is also the
aim to teach students to read and un-
derstand German intelligently. Through
the reading of German classics he gets
a glimpse of fine culture and apprecia-
tion of great thought of inspired
writers which will help to enrich his
life and develop character. It also
gives him better command ot' his moth--
The interest in the German work is
growing daily and not very far in the
future the school hopes to renew an
old organization i11 which students will
have opportunity to give free expres-
sion to language they have studied by
singing German songs, producing Ger-
man plays and having social gatherings
where German conversation prevails.
During the past year much enthusiasm
toward this was shown at the Christ-
mas party given in the new gymnasium
by the students of German. The suc-
cess of the party assures success for an
THE ART DEPARTMENT
HE Art Department is a youth
in the cu1'riculum of the Muncie
High School, compared with the Latin,
mathematics and other academic sub-
jects. It started on its career eight
years ago in the basement of the old
It has taken no small amount of grit
and persistence to survive a basement
room, and later the pigeon hole quar-
ters of the old and temporary build-
ings. From twenty to thirty students
have many times been chucked to-
gether, elbows scraping elbows, earn-
estly trying to see through the fellow
student in front and catch an impres-
sion of the pose struck by the student
model. In such a congestion it is a
question how more paint was not
scraped otf on the backs and heads of
fellow workers, how any castes and
bric-a-brac escaped destruction and
most of all how the students received
any inspiration. It seems as if the his-
tory of this department might be one
of complaints, but instead it has to its
credit a number of students who have
become special teachers of drawing in
the public schools, or are devoting
themselves to some other line of art
work. The department expects confi-
dently to number among those who
have already proved their loyalty to
this course of their alma mate1', artists
of repute. l
The students have not lacked en-
thusiasm, if they did lack equipment,
and through the study of transient ex-
hibits, ot' the history of the allied arts,
painting, sculpture and architecture,
through truthful portrayal of the sub-
ject matter as castes, models and still
life groups they have gone out possess-
ing a considerable degree of art intelli-
The aim of the department has been
fourfold, and now with a large, well-
lighted suite of rooms we expect to
stand steadily by this aim and accom-
plish more far-reaching results. First,
the department stands for practice in
A second idea in the aim of the
course has been the application of de-
sign. This has been realized in a very
limited way, but now with greater fa-
cilities, it is expected that this aim may
be exercised through pottery, basketry,
leather and metal work, china paint-
ing, costume designing and interior
Thirdly, the correlation of the work
of this department with all other de-
partments of the school, both academic
and manual, is expected to be a prac-
tice instead of only a theory. The study
of pictorial design enables the student
to illustrate scenes and characters in
English, Latin or German literature.
The study of the history of the plastic
with literature and
arts is correlative
history. Likewise other academic de-
partments may be
The statement of the materials to be
used in applied design suggests how
correlation is to be accomplished with
the Manual Department. Through co-
operation with the other departments
we hope not only "to stick art onto
things," but as Dr. Dean of the Uni-
versity of New York has said, "put art
Lastly, the appreciation of art in its
highest forms, is a fundamental idea
in the aim of the Art Course. Through
the study of the work of master paint-
ers, sculptors and architects, the appre-
ciation of the beauty of nature, of hu-
man life and of God may come more

MUNCIE HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY
HE Muncie High School library,
consisting of 4,000 volumes, oper-
ated as nearly as possible on the plans
of the modern public library, has
grown to its present size within the
past ten years.
The origin of the library perhaps
was in a few text-books left over from
year to year with an occasional addi-
tion of a dictionary or encyclopedia.
Through the dramatic efforts of the
students and faculty, together with thc
liberal appropriations by the Board oi
Education, the Muncie High School li-
brary ranks with the best in the state.
The 4,000 volumes of books are cat-
aloged according to the Dewey Deci-
mal system of classification. The li-
brary is conducted in such a manner
as to give the best accommodations to
students for reference and collateral
Particular care is given in selecting
books. The buying list is compiled by
the teachers who know best what is
needed in their work and by the Prin-
cipal. All standard books are procured
in large quantities.
Of the 4,000 volumes, the following
division is fairly accurate:
Literature, 35 per cent.
History, 25 per cent.
Science, 15 per cent.
General Reference, 15 per cent.
Miscellaneous, 7 per cent.
There are now 84 chairs in the li-
brary. In the second semester of the
1915-1916 term the library permit
blank was introduced. So far, this has
worked most successfully, allowing
only students who really need the wo1'k
to be admitted.
It is not meant that the High School
library shall supplant the public li-
brary, but rather that the two shall co-
operate and supplement each other. lt
is the intention of our library to give
to the students daily companionship
with the best writers and to inspire
them with the desire for higher and

ZRA Hayseed lived in a little place
called Sz'lt'ez'bzu'g which was noted
for its Siltz'cz's. Ezra was a Lozzgfellow
of twenty but considered by his mother
just a little Shawcr. They lived by a
Littlefield, Nigh a Lake.
It had always been Ezra's wish to do
something Nyce or Noble for his Nation,
but his mother always said, "ll"az'tc" and
perhaps she was Wiriglzt for Ezra was
Young and the world is l'Vz'lej'.
At last the Day came when he was
Matscrtcij enough so his mother said,
"Now, I will be King, ask for your
Boozzef' and Ezra answered, "Mother,
let me cast off my Fcfters and become a
Frcczzzzzn for I must not Doolittle in this
world nor Petty thiugsg I have Lozzg
been a Shepard and have carried my
Cross so I should like to Berry my past
and exert my Pofucrs to find the Keys
to some great Tz'eas1u'e, to reach the
Topfv of my ambition." His heart swelled
within him as he grabbed a Krall and
some Fudge. Then his mother said,
'You are only a Poorman and must be a
Goodwin, to not sink in the Maicr and
lose your Boots, and to Fzn'zzz'sl1 a living.
Do not Bragg, have a Stout Hari, be a
Mzzzzzz of Sfccle and Stozzc, have Ice
teyesl like a Hawk, be Steiff as a Bird,
keep your mind keen and Slzarfre as a
Rzzz'.ro1', be a good Rocszzer, keep the
lfVolfc from the door, be Quick in all
you do, hit tempters with a Royle, never
Mzmck and do lV1'iglzz'." This is a part
of the Vollcy of "Don'ts', she gave him.
and then her Ice became Briglzt with
tears and her face lVhz'z'e as Chalk and
lost its Bloom. She Howellfcdb hastily,
"Open the Wizzdez'.ll" He did and then
said consolingly, MG7'l'Il and Bczrrctt,
mother, you Kahzz, yes you Kahn."
Ezra's mother lVood not consent at
first but at last she agreed, which made
Ezra very happy, and he started to de-
cide on his future professioug should he
be a Baker, a Caz'l1entcz', a Saylor, a
Miller, or what? A Bakcz"s work was
too womanly for him, a lllazzuq a Cuz'-
fvczzfcz"s work was dangerous, a Sayloz'
took great risks out on the ocean, among
the whales, and a Mz'llez"s work was so
dusty. He was worthy of being a Force
zzzazz he thought. As he wanted to leave
on the lllorrorv he decided to retire
lfzzz'lc-v,, so at half-past six he was be-
tween the Shcets, while his mother re-
mained up until eight to Pcelc a Peck of
potatoes, and Ezra dreamed.
He was in a large city and he could
not see a Grcezzc Field, Hill, Hmzfh or
Marslz anywhere or even hear a cow-
Bell. As he was standing in the middle
of the street a Carr suddenly came 2ll'Jll'2'
and stopped. The Czzrzzzczn asked him if
wanted on. and Ezra said, "No," This
made the Carman angry and he said,
"Well, what did you stand there and
make us stop for, then ?" Ezra humbly
said, "VVell, Illl get ou." And he did.
The Carz' went so fast he got scared and
turned to a man next to him who had
a Sharp nose. On investigation he foiind
him to be a lVcar'er who was always
complaining of the Price of cloth. Ezra
decided he didn't want to be a Wc'a7'er,
right then. A Mczzzzz passed on a llfzzg-
ozzfezfb with a dirty Black face. who, he
learned, was a Coleman. Vtlell, he didn't
want that dirty position. He then heard
gay Banter next to him and turned to see
a Cook who was down-hearted. being
cheered by a Childfsj with a Bzzll in its
hand. "The Hcatfhl of those stoves
fairly drives me mad, and I could Lynch
the Mazzzz that sweeps the Hall," the
Cook said, "My troubles are too awful
to bear: I cannot be Meeker or double
my work." Ezra denounced cooking for-
ever. A Mann sat across the aisle com-
plaining of his awful luck and how bad
business was and of his many grievances.
"1'f'a Stick in my pocket to hit the dog
that always wants to Chase me and
Barkterj at my heels every Dayf' he
said. Ezra answered, "lfV00d not a Stone
do just as Well?" "You better Slack up
with your Banter and smartness VOIHIAQ'
Mann, or I might get Sharpe with you,"
he answered. "I'm a Shezcmaker, I'll
have you know," and with that he turned
his back. Ezra decided Slretwrnakers
were despicable people.
He looked out the Wilider and saw a
small La-ke which made him want to
take a Bath for Ezra was a good
SlCl1l'ZU7-7IZ1ll6't'V,' but he had the Gill of
a Esh hung round his neck on a string
as a Seal to charm away rheumatism and
so was afraid of the Hsh, so he sat still.
He thought he must have ridden Miles
and he would Fayne stop but he was
afraid to trouble the Carman to ask him
to stop. He Fosterl ed il a desire to kick
him but the Carman was a Mann of
Merritt and Ernest in his work.
They were now passing a Forrest of
Sylz'a'n beauty and he saw many a Gar-
land of Rose and many a Plant and Fern.
.Xt last the Carr stopped and then Ezra
got off and walked as far as his legs
would Carrie him. At last he leaned up
against a Post to rest and think. He
iq ,SREJE 1 t"-
would be a Porter long enough to End
his real destined position. just then he
saw a tennis Ball come rolling down the
road and after it a girl. She had Grey
Ice, clear as a Chrystal and fair lVhite
Skintnerj with Grace of a Swan: she
was Sweet as a Rose and ran Swift as
the Windferb. She was surely a Pearl,
consequently Ezra was smitten with love.
He said: "Wood you Leta person get
your Ball for you P" Then he picked it
up and as he wanted to Settle D0?t'llfSj
and Marrey he decided to Neal and pro-
pose. "Will you let the Parsontsl Seal
our happiness forever?" he said in a
passionate stammering tone. "Not with
yon," she answered in a Sharpe tone and
with a Coy toss of her head, she turned
back the Way she came.
"This is surely a Hardfinj world,"
Ezra said, mournfully, "and I am without
Xieliols,-no home, no friends, or any-
thing: I think I'll try to reach my home
town." After long wandering he finally
reached home Meeker than he was when
he left. His mother met him at the
Busch by the gate and brought him in
the house. She reached for a Krull,
when - Bang! - Ezra woke and rubbed
his Ice: it was Broad Day and the sun
was shining Brz'gl1tt'l.x'J. Then Ezra said,
thoughtfully, "NVell, I guess I'll stay
here." And he did.

'The Game with Kokomo.
The Muncie team worked very hard
Vtkhen Kokomo they met
But all i11 vain to foe or pard,
They beat them in the sweat.
The eenter of the Kokomo
VVas tall beyond degree
VVith arms which dealt many hard hit blows,
Indeed, quite like a tree.
But as the game wore on and past,
Our hopes arose and very fast.
Why, Muncie had them going, then
Poor Kokie's center yelled his last
His ankle he did bend.

The gun went off aloud,

Prof. Lee Sutherlin's Lament.
The time I've lost in wooing,
ln watching land pursuing,
The light that lies in woman's eyes
Has been my heart's undoing.
Though wisdom oft has sought me
I scorned the lore she brought me,
My only books were woman's looks
And follies all she brought me.
-Edw. Van Winkle.

A Prof. of the M. H. S.
tWith apologies to Longfellowo
Beside the spreading Linden tree
The Physics Lab. now stands:
The Prof., a tiny man is he
With very busy handsg
The cares that on this 'man do rest,
Are m'wy as the sands.
His hair is crisp, and blade, and short,
His face is like the sung
His brow's puekered with thots so deep,
He also has his fung
He looks the whole world in the face
For hc owes not anyone.
XVeek in, neck out, from morn to night,
You can hear the batteries go,
Gan hear him explain with steady voice
To pupils that are slow,
For these you know, are new hands in this work,
'Til the evening sun is low.
And scholars coming in to school
Look in at the open door,
Ask to work the Static machine
Then want to do it more,
To watch the lightning sparks that fly,
Like chaff from a threshing-floor.
On thro' life he's speededg
The task that this year sees 'begun
Next will see completed.
Something attempted, something done,
He will not be defeated.
Thanks. thanks to thee, our worthy Prof,
For the lessms thou has taught,
When at the flaming forge of life
Our fortunes will 'be wrought.
We trust you'll reach your high ambition
For which you've worked and thot.

The German Class.
In Miss Hutzel's 9A German class,
There are but very few,
But yet, they are very bright
And form a jolly little crew.
Herr Shannon is as funny
As any lad can be.
And there's ianother always smiling
Whom we call Herr Bilby.
Fraulein Woods, a brunette
ls very dear to us,
Fraulein Hayden's just the opposite,
But we love her very much.
Fraulein Foreman, a Senior
Takes her German just for fun
XVhile Fraulein Lockwood studies hard,
And thinks the tight is almost won.
In her class there are two Moore's
But for that we do not care,
They make us all the happier,
With them, our fun we share.
Herr King thinks Fraulein Huber
A mighty pretty maiden,
But yet, with many burdens
She is very heavy laden.
Fraulein Veneman and Fraulein Harris
Like to study extra well,
And when they get their test grades
They are so glad they will not tell.
Herr Bracken and Herr Fields
Are two we ean't forget,
Because they are so popular
Among our jolly set.
VVith Herr Dedert and Herr Slack
Our joyous poem must end,
Until the following year
When we wish to meet again.
