ive, the class of nineteen-eleven, send forth this ANNUAL as a token of
our high regard and best wishes for the ones who are still known as students
of P. II. S. You are favored beyond all power of reckoning inasmuch as
you are allowed to spend four years of your life under such splendid influences
as are predominant in Piqua High School. C' 011111161106Ill8llI1ll0, it is not
the end, it is the beginning! and in entering this new phase of life, we ask
that the student body, as well as the Alumni, accept this publication as a
pledge of love and hope for an Alma Mater.
Four, not long but lamentably short years have passed since the class
of ninteen eleven entered old Piqua High School. From our Freshman point
of view graduation day and the end of high school activity seemed far dis-
tant and almost unattainable. But now we find that it was only too near,
and it is with deepest regret that we take leave of these friends and sur-
roundings so much esteemed by us. VVe must go on and make room for the
classes that are to succeed us, To all of them and, especially to the class of
'twelve, we wish unbounded success in what remains of their school course.
It is to the excellent faculty of Piqua High School that we, the class of
'eleven, owe whatever success may be ours. They have always done their
best, giving to us the greater part of their time and energy. VVe did not
always appreciate them as we do now, for at first they seemed rather severe
and strictg not kind and thoughtful as we now see them. And now that we
see things in a better light we realize that everything done was for our especial
benefit. Now we know that they are our best friends and that we owe them
a debt of gratitude hardly within our ability to pay. And, having finished
our course we would say one thing to the other classmeng that is, "Stand by
the faculty, they are your truest friends."
You may not hold a position of distinction, you may participate in
very few school enterprises, and yet a great deal of responsibility rests on
you. Good order in a school room means better work, and if you do not
co-operate with the faculty in securing this you are harming your school.
You have a school paper for whose success you alone are responsible: since
no paper can exist without liberal contributions in the way of material. If
therefore, you never attempt to furnish an article for your publication you
are not helping your school to the extent of your ability. If you are a meni-
ber of one of the musical or athletic organizations of the school, it is your
duty to attend every rehearsal or practice called by the one in charge. If
you do not you are as bad as a "knocker, " for in such things there is no half
way station. Now, get your shoulder to the wheel, make every effort a
noble one, and before you realize it you will have assumed a responsibility
of such a nature that you will be a credit to yourself and to your school.
Piqua High School is now advancing at a stride which is attracting the at-
tention of other schools, and you, the students, are directly responsible for
the continuance of this advancement. Look around, find your responsi-
bility, then work!

Fay Norton, keeping up the record he made in Rhetoricals, was writing
short stories. I started to read one, but it was like all he ever wrote, too
highly impossible and bloodcurdling. There were others in the class who
were writing: F. M. Thompson, that is Marie Thompson, was writing detec-
tive stories, Emma Buchanan was impoverishing the literature with such
books as "The Drummer's Daughter", Marie Hartshorn had written ten
volumes trying to explain the German language to high school and college
students, while Mary Grosvenor was deep in a discussion of Mathematics.
A number of the class had become public speakers: they were Rebecca
Hancock, who was still trying to expound the intricacies of popular govern-
ment to the peopleg Albert Dankworth, who had become world famous as
a debater and who seemed to have debated so much
that it affected his brain, for he was going to debate
the question, "Resolved, that I am able to debate
that I can debate," Margaret Coate, who spoke loud
enough to be heard as long as the room in which
"'-- she spoke was not over twenty feet square, and Earl
5414 W"1'4'l4f" Von Bargen who had become a minister. I started
to read one of his sermons but it was too deep for me. It was against
dancing, and just below it, was an advertisement of a class in aesthetic
dancing taught by Vernie Mollman.
The advertisements proved to be a valuable help to me, for from them
I found that Boneita Deming had established a new department store. hav-
ing had some experience in this line while still in school. Susanna Elliott
who, as I remember, always had a great fondness for mathematics had become a
civil engineer. Ruth Louis, who was always calm and quiet and the last
person one would suspect of going up in the air, was running a line of aero-
Two of the class had become actors, or at least one, Norma McCally
had done so, the other, Chester Hawley, although he claimed to be one, was,
as I found out by reading a program of the play in which he appeared, to be
found amont the citizens, soldiers, servants, etc., and probably had two lines
to say in a mob scene. '
Ransley Bateman had established an agency, renting out beaus and
Sweethearts, and Perkins Roe invented a new kind of tobacco which he
warranted to be perfectly harmless and to contain no canibus Indica. I
asked him about it, but when he found out who I'was, he, as an old friend,
advised me not to try it, he had used it a while and it had caused him to
lose considerable flesh, so that he was not quite so fat as he was in school.
The last two of the class were not so easy to find for they had gone to
Africa, as missionaries. They were Florence Kiefer and Emma Roeser.
They had good intentions, but one day so the story goes, they got into a
discussion over a certain passage of Goethe's "Herman and Dorothea" and
wandered off. When they were found they were brought back to America
where I found them in a sanatorium. When I asked to see them I was told
that I might go in providing I did not say anything about Germany or speak
in the German tongue. l
