The innovations which usuallv come with the advent of a new principal, addtd to those made possible bv the advantages of the beautiful new building w hich we new occupy, have wrought almost a complete change. Old courses have been more tullv developed and improved and many new lines of ' ork, such as the Manual Training and Domestic Science courses, have been added. Therefore, in the Pierian for 191 i, we have attempted to depid: clearly High School life as it now exists and to represent each line ot work which may be of interest to the pupils, patrons, and iriends ot the school. We wish to express our sincere appreciation ot the services ot all those ho have assisted us in our work — the ever-loyal student body and the members of the faculty, to whom we are greatly indebted tor the success of the Pierian. WAllAC£ GIF =ORD Six Our FarcM ell HE lessons and tasks are over, fHir four years ' work is done: Yet regret with our pleasure is blended, ' e sigh o ' er the laurels we ' ve won. Today as we stand on the threshold. Old scenes are recalled to the mind — Toda ' we stand at the gateway. Casting glances before and behind. The path seemed long and weary. The end seemed far awa)- — Yet at the goal we ' re standing, Behind us lies the way. W ' e thinlc of the days gone forever. Gone now — beyond our recall. The days so care free and happ ' , ' hich now seem the dearest of all. Rut the darkness ne ' er o ' erwhelnu-d us. Our spirits were sturdy and strong: Youth is courageous and hopeful. Sad thoug-hts never last long. Kind words of help spurred us onward, Ready hands ever were near : Helped us to shoulder our burdens. Pointed the way, strong and clear. And the ' this work is now over, A greater lies at hand : The world calls us to our places. Our service does demand. As Freshmen a,gain we enter This larger, longer way — Our hearts are strong and courageous, We ' re anxious for the frav. True some days have been gloomy, ' hen our spirits sank by the wa ' ; When it all seemed useless endeavor — When our soids within us cried na ' ! Our tasks seemed heavy and irksome. Things which could never be done — Success did not always smile on us, The victorv was not alwavs won. They tell us tlie way is rugged. There ' ll be pitfalls for our feet— ' here one wins laurels and honor, Many will go down in defeat. Rut our courage will not be daunted. ell banish all our fears : The future to us seems golden — ' e enter the race of the vears I A Senior.

Say what you n will, every teacher in this high school is like the G5to Commission Plan of Government — each one has mi some inherent weakness! " Peggy Marshall defiant- confronted a group of admiring listeners. Ad- T ii j miring, mind you, for Peggy Marshall was a leader and was always surrounded by a group of admiring followers. Everything she said or did was considered " perfectly all right " by everyone. Xo, not everyone, for there were, of course, some of the prim, mind-your-mother-and-teacher kind who were " simply scan- dalized " at her deeds. But you know that kind are always " scandal- ized " at everything and wouldn ' t go to the library for anything, unless they really had something to stud} ' . " What ' s the matter, Peg? " lazily asked one girl. " Oh, take !Miss Whitefield, for instance, " Peggy answered, " She ' s very nice to look at- in fact, she always makes me think of Martha Washington: but. her inherent weakness is taking names at every available opportunity. She reports you for everything you do ! If I get another condition in interest, it ' s her fault ! " Then Miss Xolkins ! She ' s a perfect darling to be sure, but she has an indescribable way of making me feel like one of those dread- fully proper " Deutschen Madchen, " when goodness knows I am thoroughly .American. I am proud of the fact, too, and I take care to let her know it whenever possible — but it doesn ' t help interest grades any ! " Tjr Miss Franklin, the fact that she can stand to go without her lunch doesn ' t make Virgil any easier.. I simply hate Aeneas, and as for Dido — silly thing! wish she had killed herself before Aeneas arrived ! She would have saved herself a lot of trouble and us the whole fourth book of the Aeneid. " And then Mr. Kubelik ! lie is cunning! Don ' t vou remember how he used to tell us to be ' ca ' m and peaceful? ' I ' .ut he is always so provoking when I am really serious — acts as tbo ' it were a perfect joke! " And then Mr. Burnson ! He ' s the limit! He ' s been here only since February, and mind you, when they took the faculty picture — just a few weeks after he came — he asked to sit by some one who was young and pretty ! ' Spose he meant Miss Baylor — they ' re all crazy about her ! He ' s simply an aivfnl flirt ! " Then, the principal ! To be sure, we Seniors ought not object to him — at least to hear the Juniors tell it ! But he always puts me in mind of the ' broad hand of the law ! ' He comes out to our house for dinner quite often. But gracious, girls, I must go on ! The prin- cipal asked me to come down to the office right after school and its four-ten now, so good-by I " Thus speaking, Peggy proceeded to mount the , banister. " Oh, ye immortal gods ! " gasped one — she was studying ' irgil — " Peggy iMarshall, the office is right down there ! " " Heck! Peg ! " cried another. " Great Cresars, " and " Ohs " and " Ahs " floated down to her as she sailed sereneh ' down the banister to its very foot. X o. not the T ' l-rv foot, for a step was heard and the " broad hand of the law " was laid gently but firmly on Peggy ' s shoulder. " Do you do this every day? " asked the principal. " Xo sir, " meekly. " When do you graduate? " " In June, " still more softly. " Come into my office, please. " Peggy submissively entered the office. " liss Margaret " — impressively — " I simply want to know at what time j ' our mother expects me for dinner tonight. " Pe. rl Irene E. rxest, ' 11. Ten Q THE FAITLTV ISAAC ELIJAH NEFF— A.B..

Tzuenty Chocolate Cake TARIA, what do you tliiiik? " " Lots of things, " I answered, busih ' piling sand- wiches on the locker. " But why? " " Did you ever see such luck ' " she asked in an exasperated tone. " Xot a person who has promised [ to bring cake has come, except ' Beedy, ' so all we have is one little box of nabiscoes and this half of a chocolate cake. And there are at least forty people here, " she added dolefully. It was the day- of the basketball spread. We two were in the locker room, arranging the things the girls had brought for lunch. Oh, yes, we were on the " lunch " committee. " Well, " I said, " I haven ' t a speck more money — I spent niv last penny for wooden plates. " " I haven ' t any, either, " Corni-x replied, " antl besides, we ' ve spent enough money anyway. I suppose we ' ll just have to let it go and make the best of things. But wdiat will the new girls think? " " I don ' t care, " I answered nonchalantly. " If thev don ' t like our spread, let them get up one themselves ; then when all the cake that has been promised fails to materialize, they ' ll know how it goes. But, " I went on reflectively, " it would be positivelv sinful to put that lovely chocolate cake out on the table for three dozen girls when there ' s only enongh for five. " " I could easily eat every bit of it myself, " said Cornix, with a sigh. " Not if I were around ! " " Well, then we both would, " she anicniled, laughinglv. " That ' s more like it, " I agreed. " But really, Maria, wliat shall we do? It simply won ' t do to put such a little bit of cake on the table, before so many people. " " Xo, it won ' t, " I answered dubiously, " e both looked at the cake — such a one I had never seen before! .Ml dark and flakv witli the white icing that looked like frost. My mouth began to itch. Almost unconsciously I reached up and broke off a tiny bit and put it in my mouth. Um-m-m ! " You ! " began Corni.x, and then she did the same thing. Suddenly a thought struck me. " Corni-x, " I exploded, " Let ' s " We exchanged glances — that was all that was necessary. A smile spread over our faces then we laughed out loud. " How will we do it? " I exclaimed. " Easily enough, " she answered, " we ' ll just put it in that box over there, and then I ' ll take my wraps up to my locker. Am I understood? " " You are, Cornix ! " I cried, enthusiastically. " Then when we get our ice cream, — " she continued, and we grabbed each other and executed a war dance that would have made a red Indian green with envy. Just then Beedy came in and stopped in surprise. " Well, what ' s all this about? " she asked. We looked at each other sheepishly. " Let ' s tell her, " Cornix urged. " She would ask about it any- how, because she brought it, you know. " " All right, " I agreed; " I don ' t suppose we could eat it all just by ourselves, anyway. " Cornix hurriedly explained the situation and our plan and Beedy entered into heartily. We agreed to meet at the head of the back stairs as soon as the ice cream was served. Things started out pretty smoothly. Cornix started out with her wraps but onlv got as far as the door when Peg came nnming up and asked in her impetuous way : " Where you goin ' , kid? " " lust to take my things up to my locker. " Cornix answered calmh ' , walking on. r ut Peg, eager to talk about the game, walked Tweiilv-oiie along " with her and threw her arm around Cornix, thereby nearly knocking- her wraps out of her arms. I don ' t see why girls are so loving ! Fortunately, however, some one called Peg, and there was no more trouble. Things were all right so far. " Beedy " and I sat together at the spread and Corni.x close by. Things tasted awfully good eaten off of a wooden plate with a spoon, and generally mi.xed with the basketball atmosphere (and dirt). We three finished about the same time, went after our ice cream, and slipped out by different doors. Xick started out with Beedy, but Beedy got rid of her somehow. It was quite dark so we almost had to feel our way down the corridor and up the back stairs to Comix ' s locker, but once there we wasted no time. No one was likely to come up there so we just put the cake on that little banister at the head of the stairs and began, using the handles of our spoons in lieu of knives. Such a cake I have never tasted before — nor since ! We thought of the poor girls down stairs eating hard, cracky nabiscoes and we actually shed a tear ( although it was pretty hard to .squeeze out) . Our first dish of ice cream was gone in no time, but there was still about one-third of the cake left, so we decided to save it to eat with our second dish. Corni.x started down first and was going in by the south hall, but the sound of heavy footsteps coming rapidly towards us made Beedy and me beat a hasty retreat, while Cornix froze against the wall. However, it was only Mr. Horton and he didn ' t even see us, so as soon as we heard the Garfield door shut, Corni.x waved her hand gleefull_ ' to us and proceeded to top-toe down the hall. We went by the north corridor, moving cautiously along the wall. Some one was drinking at the fountain so we had to waif until she went away before we could go through the doors. Then Beed_ " went on into the Gym, leaving me with the cake to wait until she returned. Suddenly the Gym door opened and a crowd of girls with their wraps on came out, followed by Miss Tallant. I happened to be near the fountain and had sense enough to lean over, pretending to drink, but " Heavens, " I thought, " are they all going home? " They came slowly towards me. I stood up, prepared for the worst, one of the girls came on ahead to drink — it proved to be Percy. I backed back in the corner and stood in front of the cake, ready to defend it with my life — if necessary. She didn ' t see me, though, and I might have crouched down in the corner and had no accident, but, unfortunately, I had eaten devil ' s food. As she was drinking, I pushed her head down. " Why, laria ! " she exclaimed, coughing and spluttering. I laughed and then asked : " Where are you going? I thought all the girls would stay a while and we ' d have a dance. " " Oh, half the people are out, the rest of us are going over to the ' Y ' to see a volley-ball game. Mr, Horton asked us. Didn ' t you hear him? " " No, " I said blandly, " I was out by the lockers. " She thought, of course, that I meant in the dressing room, and I didn ' t take the trouble to disillusion her. " So was I, " she said, " but I didn ' t see you. I was dishing out the ice cream. " " Trust you to do that, " I said, nodding .sagely. " Oh ! " she began in an injured tone, but then laughed and pushed me backwards. That was the tragedy of the da ' , for I was wholly unexpecting such an exhibition of g mnastic strength ! I lost my balance and down came m - foot, with a geometrical nicety that would have showered everlasting rays of joy and hope into ; Iiss Hawkins " heart, .squarely in the middle of that precious cake! Then — adversity upon adversity, the ice cream was all gone ! But I didn ' t care — much. It was worth a dozen dishes of cream to have had that devil ' s food, and all I hope is, that we have choco- late cake like that in Heaven. I L RY Gr.vxt AI.xther. ' 12.

On a Spring-like day in February we, all beau- tifully fresh and green, left our beloved Garfield — beloved, now, since we have escaped the austere gentleman of " Room 1, " with all the terrors contained therein — and made our debut, at last, into High School. That was a memorable day in our lives — a joyous one, bringing sensations of triumph and of ambitions realized. It was then that we became acquainted with the new building and the new principal, too, and we felt very pleased and important over the outlook. It must be admitted, however, that we were secretly glad that none of the other students, particularly the feared and dreaded Seniors, were around that day. It was on the next jNlonday morning in chajjel that we were dis- covered. Such admiring glances as were cast toward our balcony — or toward what was supposed to be our balcony — although we found that we were slightly mixed up — by the other students ! Even those grave Seniors deigned to glance up at us encouraginglv. Xo doubt they were prophesying — or so we supposed — as to which ones of our number would be future Daniel ' ebsters, Abraham Lincolns, or Theodore Roosevelts, or at least embryo track or basketball men. On Wednesday of that week, at the chapel exercises proper, the first of the many honors which are expected to be showered on our class, was shown us. The Seniors took our balcony and let us have their seats on the main floor ! In addition to Mr. X ' eflf ' s kind words, the Junior and Senior class presidents made welcoming speeches. How important we had become alread ' ! " e appreciated it all, too, and several of us have already begun preparing speeches which we sometime, as class presidents, expect to deliver to the " Freshies. " Since then, with the exception of entries in the interest book, a few " bawl outs " in chapel, a few cases of what is vulgarly called " being lost, " and a number of blows which our vanity has received at the hands of the other students, particularly those wonderful and all-knowing Sophomores — nothing much has happened. But we know that in four years from now, when we stand at the top where the present Seniors stand, when many honors, such as they have re- ceived, have been showered upon us, when we — like they — shall be noted for more than our " good looks, " that, if we shall then be " weighed in the balance, " we shall not be found wanting. Twenty-four TTv ' cntv- rc The Class of 19 14 " jPOX the advent of onr class to the Richmond High I School we were found to be typical " Freshies, " Ul! having all the suppressed excitement, the fear and (f the capacity for getting lost, that have been the at- I tributes of First Year Classmen from time im- I memorial. However, all that has been altered. We now think ourselves to be much more perhaps than we really are, for we have been spoiled by the overindulgence of honors. To designate them all would be an endless task. It is sufficient to say that our class is represented in the Orchestra, the Pedestrian and Literary clubs, and last, but bv no means least, the Interest Book. C)ne of our number was even in the caste of " j Iy Lord in Livery, " which was the " Big Show " of the Fall Festival. Our heads nartirally became enlarged by all these honors. It is only when Ir. Xeff glances up at our balcony and condescendingly makes some reference to the Class of 1914, and the Seniors laugh in their superior and provokingly in- dulgent wa ' in order that we may not be e.xenipt from any of the indignities which they once endured — it is then, and then onl ' , that our heads are reduced to their natural proportions. However, as the new budding genius reaches its full bloom, every one will know of the splendid and remarkable achievements of this very exceptional class. Tzi ' enty-six TzcciitV ' Seven 3n m mnnam Helen Catherine Neal :WARCH le, 1M05— IIECEIIIBEK 23, 1010 " Death is a pliasc of nature " Rirth. infancy, youth, age, death, these are all phases of nature, each one beautiful and blessed in its turn. There are no accidents in the plan of God. Least of all is death an accident. Sometime the mortal must put on the immortal. Death is the kindly servant that breaks the bonds of the mortal and sets free the immortal spirit. Death is the sunset of the mortal life — but the sunrise of the immortal life. Death is a river: on this side is our earthly home — on the other side is our heavenly home. Death is the door which opens into our Father ' s house. Helen Xeal had the heritage of youth. Had she remained with us, she would have grown old. Death was to her the entrance to eternal youth. She was like a beautiful flower — now she is transplanted to the garden of God. Our heritage is the n emory she had left us. Her charming spirit we cannot forget. Her happy, kindlv disposition will remain a living ' influence. " So let the eyes that fail on earth, On thy eternal hills looks forth ; And in thy beckoning angels know The dear ones whom we loved below. " Dr. S. R. Lyons. Pastor RciJ Memorial Church.

How dear to my heart arc the scenes of my school-days, ' hen fond recollection presents them to view ; The lockers, the teachers, the dense crowded hallways, And every loved spot which my youthful heart knew. Chorus — The hygienic fountain. The enameled white fountain, The dear bubbling fountain That stood b ' the wall. The hygienic fountain I hailed as a treasure, As poised on the edge I inclined to it my lips. I found it the source of exquisite pleasure. As I drew in delicious health-giving sips. And now far removed from that loved habitation, The tears of regret will intrusively fall. And fancy reverts to the fine sanitation. And sighs for the fountain, close by the wall. lildred H. — " Why is ' Sir. Waldrip so cross this term? " Freshie — " Huh ! Guess he ' s going to ' tie up ' pretty soon !

It was all new Jand strange, but we soon " caught on " to everything- •iJiIeS if S ki) " ' then it all went pretty well, although several of us did make the acquaintance of the engine room and iMr. Knouff ' s broad paddle. Last fall we entered the new building which was not quite com- pleted then. But that did not worry us : with our customary op- timism and good nature we endured the noise and the odor of the hct asphalt in a heroic manner which gained the admiration of all — particularly of ourselves. The Sophomores have always been ready and willing to help out in any of the school affairs. In the Fall Festival the Sophon-.ores were as well, if not better, represented as anv other class in school. In athletics this spring most of the candidates for track work were Sophomores. In the orchestra and various clubs, too, the Sopho- mores are well represented. In short, the Sophomores are every- where and the school simply could not run without them. We, the Sophon-.ores, much to orr disgust, are the idols of the Freshies, whom we, in turn consider as one of the few necessary evils. They don ' t amount to anything and are always getting in the way ; still we feel the responsibility of our position and are doing our best to reform them. We are the abomination of the Juniors, who seem to think that, merely because they have from one to fourteen more credits than we, they are very much above us : while the Seniors, although supposed to be our patron saints, don ' t even trouble themselves to thmk about us. The Faculty? After great deliberation we have come to the conclusion that the Faculty is a " wet blanket " upon a joyous life. However, since " what can ' t be cured m.ust be endured, " we have borne them as best we could and done our best to get even by worrying them as much as possible. We are the ' ' swelleft, " best looking class that ever went to the Richn-.ond High School. If you don ' t believe it. just look at the interest book and our class picture. We are models of propriety at all tin:es and excellent examples for Freshmen. ' e have no high aspirations to break any past records made b. ' the other classes, but we simply stand for an all around model class, which expects to reach the standard which has been set by the Seniors just leaving. Thirfy-tzi ' o 3v Tftirtv-thrce A " Best " Period I stood in a hall in the High School As the clocks were striking the hour ; Ajid thejdoors about me opened, ' j ' fll. thi:) ' by a magic power. As all had once been silent, (Indeed but a moment before), Xow all was confusion and clatter. And a low, suppressed uproar. I was quickly surrounded by figures Hastening to and fro. And suddenl)- heard close beside me, " I know not where to go; Oh, won ' t you please direct me? For ' Twenty ' I am bound. But I ' m so confused and bewildered I can ' t find my way around. " Surprised I at once turned quickly A " Freshie " to behold. And sympathizing kindly. The way I gladly told; " Go down the flight of stairs } ' onder, AMiere many their ways do wend ; Turn to the right and follow The corridor to the east end. " And there you ' ll find Room Twenty, " I thus informed : and then I heard, as in answer given. A low and deep " . meu ! " Xow, more surprised than ever, I looked about — to see .A portly and rotund figure : " Are you all on board ? " asked he. " Yes. sir. " answered the " Freshie. " " But really I must go on. Or I ' ll be late to classes — " In a twinkling he was gone. Gone, as if by magic. Lost, now, amid the throng That merrily pushing onward. Hurried its way along. There would I fain have lingered. More wonders thus to see. But another Prof, did then approach — " No loitering, please, " said he. Just then a bell rang shrilly. Soon closed was every door. Peace and silence reigned again — The period of " rest " was o ' er. ] I. R.TORiE Converse Curme, ' 13.

We entered High School in 1908, at the beginning of Prof. Knouff ' s regime, and it required but two years association with our class to give him his excellent reputation as a high school principal and the oflfer of the principalship of the largest high school in the United States. Thus j ' ou see that, altho ' the Seniors declare that we are extraordinarily " green, " it is mostly envy on their part, for such a distinction as that could never come to a class which bad ever been anything but remarkable. But, noteworthy as that fact is, it was only the beginning of our achievements. In all clubs and vario us school activities the Juniors have alwa3 ' s been active. In debating we have two leagues — to the Seniors " one — and several of the members have done splendid work. Three of them, Fred Girty and Jennie and Lila Stevenson, won places in the preliminary " try-out " for the Inter-Scholastic Debating team ; while Fred Girty made the team in the final. Wanda Johnson is Secretary of the Board of Control ; Ed Laning and Al Mayer were members of the basketball team, while Paul Miller won first place in the high hurdles at the Quadrangular Meet at Anderson last year. Thus you see that we are a distinguished body in all respects, and aided by the wisdom and experience gained in our three vears of High School life now past, we expect, as Seniors, to break all records and surpass all fame won by any other class ever graduated from this, our beloved Richmond High School, even this rear ' s class, and to be a bright and shining light for classes that follow. Thirty-six r iir v-Ji ' i ' i ' " a Seek and Ye Shall Find " jHE hands of the clock were approaching the hoiu- if nine and the second performance of the thriUing I drama, " My Lord in Livery, " was about to begin. Apparently everything w ' as in readiness and the curtain was about to go up, when Laura rushed frantically across the stage, calling in an agonized whisper; " Smitty ! Sniitty ! Where ' s Bobby ? " Where, indeed, was Bobb} ' ? Everyone was in a frenzy of ex- citement — but to no avail. Bobby was nowhere to be found. ' hether he was at the circus, unconcernedly munching cracker-jack and watching an elephant " loop the loop, " or being thrilled by the predictions of the fortune-teller, no one knew. However, scouts were immediately sent out under the direction of an indignant, energetic dark-haired little woman, and an excited search was begun. In the meantime, on the second floor, the third performance of the " Loquacious Silhouettes " was about to begin, when, alas ; it was discovered that they, too, were minus one of their greatest at- tractions — namely, the Rev. Father Horatio. This management, like the other one, immediately sent scouts out — these being under the direction of a sunny-haired, blue-eyed, rosy-cheeked little woman with a ver ' penetrating voice. The searches were w-axing exciting but still fruitless, when affairs came to a climax, or rather, the head detectives collided : there was an unusual disturbance in the south hall : at one end of the corridor came the indignant, energetic brunette — otherwise Miss Finfrock. " Bobby! Bobby! " she kept calling frantically, " Has anybody here .seen Bobby? " .A t the other end of that crowded passage rushed the blonde — ordinarily known as Miss Johnson — glancing suspiciously at every- one, even his Satanic JMajesty himself, as tho ' half suspecting that each might be the lissing One in disguise. " Horatio! Horatio! " she screamed, frantically, " Has anybody here seen Floratio? " The two met. They stopped. The ' looked at each other blankly. Then Miss Johnson said with an exasperated sigh, " Well ! The only way that I can account for this horrible episode is that Horatio has swallowed Bobby and has gone home to live down the effects. " However, history records that Bobby and Horatio were both found and the shows continued. Edwin Henry Flook, T2.

I You all do know the reason ; it is because I The class of nineteen eleven is to take its departure From Richmond High School. I remember The first time it ever entered High School ' s halls; ' Twas on an eventful day, in nineteen seven. That day we all shook off the dust of Garfield From our feet and soon became important Freshies. See the result which has been brought about ; how soon We learned the ways of the world ; mark how good luck Has followed us through all our High School life. For lo ! It is rumored from lip to lip That the class of nineteen eleven was never " green. " It bore its humble position with a dignity Worthy of a higher class. We, as you know. Are the younger classes ' idols. Judge, oh ye readers. How dearly do they love us. That fact Proves our worth. That is the most important proof of all ' For when they do but behold us with their eyes. Admiration, stronger than the odors issuing From the Domestic Science rooms overcomes them.

Sorrowful ones, }-ou weep when you but think Upon the possibility. Look you ! High School itself Will be marred by our departure. First Freshman — " Oh, grief unutterable !

We who have won this fame must leave you. Who can fill our places ? Alas, I know not I But, the reputation which great people make Lives after them. Their fame is oft handed down in history. So it is with us. The lower classmen do think us wonderful. As it is so it is a great virtue. Here by your leave, I have Spoken of the class of 1911. It has brought many honors Upon R. H. S. which honors has the school acknowledged. Did this turn our heads? Nay, we are made of sterner stuff. And so, we beg to bid you a last farewell, with hopes That all may live up to the example we have set you.

The bell ' had rung, and the study room settled down to some- I thing resembling quiet. " Uh, bliss! " thought the teacher in charge, " I [ believe the young imps are really going to behave I themselves this morning. What a relief ! Xow where ' s my Baedecker? " and immediately she was lost in the con- tents of the little book which was discreetly covered with a black cloth cover. Soon the heavy door swung open and in came a small but verv officious Senior. He marched up to the teacher, asked a question, to wliich she answered with an absent-minded nod, and then pro- ceeded to write an annoucement on the board. Immediately students, big and little, stirred and began to crane their necks for a better view. " All Seniors, " they read, " had better get dates early for the Senior dance — said event to take place two weeks from Wednesday night. See committee for particulars. " Then, the dignified vouth left with the same all-important air which was probablv intended to indicate that he was on the dance committee. Carl, sitting in the back part of the room, read the announcement carefully. Then his eyes rested on a pretty girl sitting near the front of the room. He glanced cautiously at the teacher — but she was finding Stratford-on-Avon far more interesting than Room Twenty in the Richmond High School. Noting her abstraction, Carl tapped his ink-well three times. Instantly Lucile raised her head. She, too, glanced at the teacher and then tapped her ink-well three times, at the same time producing from the pocket of her shirtwaist a piece of paper — it was a code. Having received the answer, Carl, after considting an innocent looking rectangle of yellow paper, began to tap his ink-well, slowly and distinctly. " Will-vou-meet-me-on-B-Street-this-noon ? " Lucile interpreted, " I-have-something-to-ask-you. " " Yes-but-what-do-you-want? " came the answer: " tell-me-now. " " I-would-rather-tell-you-verbally — " from the rear — " but-what- I-wanted-was-a — " " Will the young gentleman in the rear please cease tapping his ink-well? " and the teacher, aroused at last from her dreams of Old England, looked at the offending youth as sternly as her kind gray e)fes could. There was nothing left to do but wait until intermission. Luckily for Carl ' s peace of mind the bell soon rang. Lvicile hurried to the hall. " What were _ ' ou trying to say when she interrupted us? " she asked, as he joined her, " Whv, I wanted to know if I could have — " " Xo talking in the halls, please, " and as, with a gasp and a sigh, thev parted, they caught a glimpse of a white aproned teacher, whom they had considered their friend, heretofore, standing near. Carl was in despair. He must see Lucile soon, before .she had a " bid " from any other fellow. " I ivill see her next intermission — I can ' t wait till noon, " he vowed. Fifty-four Next intermission he was walking along near the fountain when he saw Lucile coming toward him. " Oh, hick! " he exclaimed, half audibly, " I have it! The Art Gallery ! Lncile ! " he called softly, as she came near, then beckoned to her to follow as he stepped thro ' the door. . nd Lucile, her blue eyes sparkling with delight at the daring of it, followed. But alas! " Students are not permitted to visit the .Art Gallery during intermission, " they heard next ' n the deep voice of the noted Elk ' s Fair " barker, " and almost before the last word was uttered, the culprits had disappeared. " Ye Gods! " muttered the forlorn youth as he hurried to English, " Was there ever such luck ! My next chance is the fourth hour in Chemistry. Wonder what will keep me from speaking- to her then ? Something, I ' ll bet! " and he ground his teeth, and then tried to con- vince i [r. Murray that the " Ode on the Intimations of Immortality " was written abou t a man who had been disappointed in love. The next hour he hurried up stairs, determined to talk a few minutes before class for he sat next to her. But — his usual luck ! She didn ' t come until just as the bell rang. Before long, however, the instructor — the only one in the building ' .against whom no one had a grudge, unless it was some one envious of his immaculate linen — obligingly went to the laboratory for a test tube and Carl, taking advantage of so golden an opportunity, whispered, " Say, Lucile, mav I have a date for the Senior dance? " Just then the heartless instructor came in. Soon, however, Lucile laid her hand carelessly on the arm of Carl ' s chair and im- mediately Carl laid his hand suspiciously near hers. Then she with- drew hers and sat watching the experiment with an expression of ab.solutelv angelic innocence on her face. Xot so luckless Carl. He carefully unfolded the bit of yellow paper that he now held in his hand. " Oh, Carl! " he read. " I am sorry, but I have a date. Charles asked me on the stairway a few minutes ago. " He crushed the note in his hand and with deepening frown, sat looking out of the window with a woe-begone e.xpression that might have indicated that he had lost his last friend. He was completely discouraged. Enoch - rden, gazing thro ' the window of Philip Rav ' s house, wasn ' t in it with Carl gazing out of the fourth story window of the High School building. " What ' s the use? " he thought bitterly, " after I had tried my best, I onlv find that she ' s going with someone else! If I am always to have such luck " But Lucile was nudging him vigorously and he awoke to the fact that he had been called on three times. " Carl, " said the instructor quietly, " two off in interest for in- attention. " Errett Duxh. m H. islev. ' IL Fifty-five E.

Not claiming architectural I splendor nor elaborate design, nevertheless it comes . nearer to meeting the demands of an up-to-date I school system than any yet built in the state of In- diana. No school could be better situated to become a .social center nor could the construction be better adapted to that important use. Situated next door to the post-office, the Y. M. C. A., the Com- mercial Club and the leading churches, it helps to form a remarkable institutional center. Its doors swing open on three streets, its public hall occupies the choice position of honor and convenience, its unicjue and commodious art galleries are a feature not found elsewhere in any city, its shops, laboratories, gymnasium, in fact all the needs of the modern high school and the social needs of a cultured community have been wisely and completely met. Its growing use by the public is but the incipient promise of great civic and social usefulness. Instead of any annoyance to or interference with the regular school work which might be expected to result from the use of the general public, there is a decided profit on the side of interest. The High School of Richmond is admirably adapted to become the living- room rather than the shrine of the community life. Such an idea must have been in the minds of the school authorities when they worked out so completely the adaptations to the needs of com- munal life. It is a fine thing to have an elegant and well appointed school building. It is finer still to have a well organized and right spirited school. The first is made of brick, mortar and wood ; but the last is made of mental and spiritual reactions. Happy indeed is the school- master who finds himself surrounded by aspiring and correct spirited Fifty-. youth. The school building is fire-proof, neither is there danger of a " fire " from a student body when the spirit is right. A person who has had little to do with bringing about conditions as they are in Richmond High School can speak without self-praise when he commends its incomparable features. Many things are peculiar and altogether characteristic of Richmond High No such musical development or offerings are to be found in the sec- ondary field. The orchestra of the school is without a peer. The art gallery, its treasures and its appeal are alone. The course of study. its richness in all lines of work, academic as well as industrial and commercial is in the van. The percentage of students who come from homes of culture and refinement is higher than elsewhere and the percentage of teachers who are college graduates and who have been on the force through the grades, is notably high. Principles: Is everybody satisfied? We earnestly hope not. Is there anything wrong, or is anyone downhearted? We as earnestly hope and believe not. If all were perfectly satisfied, something serious would be the matter. The hook worm is not confined to the body of man ; it ravages all the institutions of man and induces a soothing paralysis in payment for the board bill. Himian institutions are never perfect and the very best that can be expected of them is, that they shall approach consistently toward the best ideals which man can create. B - the theory of limits we may approach to a position, less distant from the limit than any assigned quantity, but by an inexorable law of mathematics we can not reach that untouchable limit. Human ingenuity has well nigh relieved all mechanical devices from friction but an appreciable balance remains, and perpetual motion will forever be unsolvable. It is this possibility of diminishing the distance to perfection and this yielding of the frictional and contrary forces which encourage US to our greatest efforts. Rewards and dividends accrue and are be satisfied while better efforts are possible. Let the glories of the added to the assets whether we work for them or whether we even past encourage rather than satisfy us. Let no achievement, however note them. satisfying in itself, paralyze the efforts to have a grander and still Applying these truisms to our cherished High School, let no one more incomparable High School. L E. Xeff. Board of Education S. S. Str.vttan, Jr., President Lee B. Nusbaum, Treasurer Dr. yi. F. Johnston, Secretary T. A. MoTT, Sn[ierintendcnt of Schools Fifty-eight The Art Department I THE present time, the course in drawing offered in tlie Richmond High School compares very favorably with similar courses in all the larger high schools in the state. Four full years are offered, consisting of free hand and mechanical drawing, charcoal, designing and metal work. The work in metals is given only to advanced pupils and all work in drawing is elective. The equipment is complete in every detail and thoroughly up-to-date. Two large rooms on the third floor are devoted to the free-hand work. These rooms are well lighted and supplied with easels, stools and separate lockers for each pupil. The mechanical drawing room is on the second floor and contains large desks with several drawers in each, and all the apparatus necessary for this branch of work. The metal shop is in the basement of the old building-. Here are large and small blow-pipes, vises, benches and all sorts of metal tools. Belt pins, necklaces, rings, desk sets and many other articles are made from copper, brass and silver. This is one of the most popular courses in the curriculum. In ad- dition to the regular student classes, a number of the city teachers take the work after school and on Saturdays. The instructors of the art department. Miss Alice G. Locke and Aliss Ivy Kraft, are devoting- a great deal of time and energy to the work and the success of the department and the interest shown by the pupils is largely due to their eft " orts. Fifty-nine Cooking " We may live without poetry, music and art, We may live without conscience, we may live witliout heart. We may live without friends, we may live without laooks, But civilized man cannot live without cooks. " The kitchen of the Richmond High School is one of the most attractive and popular as well as best equipped departments in the school. There are four long desks with soapstone tops, equipped with separate bu ' mers and ovens for twenty-four pupils. The desks also contain drawers in which are the cooking utensils and dishes which are used most. Each pupil has a locker in which aprons and like necessities are kept. There is a large gas range for general use and two cupboards in which extra dishes and culinary utensils are kept. All of the furnishings of the room are of such material as may easily be kept clean. There are four large sinks with hot and cold water; there is a five-foot wainscoting of white tiling; and the desk tops are of soapstone. This course is a very valuable one from both a physiological and eco nomic standpoint, since scientific instruction is given the pupils in the uses and preparation of foods and in careful purchasing. The following is the two year ' s course offered : FIRST YEAR. Study of the Food Principles — the carbohydrates, proteins, fats, minerals and water. Practical application of this is made in the preparation of vege- tables, cereals, sugar, eggs, milk, flour mixtures, meat, fish and poultry. Work in Household Economics, including a knowledge of simple plumbing, care of the refrigerator, ventilation, heating, lighting and cleaning. Lessons in serving. SECOND YE. R. Canning, preserving and jelly-making. A study of the proper combinations of foods. Household bacteriology ' . Fancy cooking. Invalid cookery. Infant cookery. Serving. Laundry work. .S " u " v Domestic Arts " Seam and g-ussut and band, Band and gusset and seam ; Till over the buttons I fall asleep. And sew them on in a dream. " The domestic art department of the Richmond High School is a continuation, on a larger scale, of the same department at Garfield. The rooms belonging to this department consist of a fitting room, in which there is a long mirror and lockers in which the larger garments are kept, and the large sewing room, where twenty-four pupils may be accommodated at once at the large tables, which con- tain drawers in which the girls keep their materials. In this room there also are four lockers, for various purposes, four sewing ma- chines of the latest and most improved styles, a pressing board and electric iron. A two year ' course is offered in Domestic Art, six periods a week, and comprises the care and use of the sewing machine, the designing, drafting, cutting, fitting, and construction of garments ; the study of materials suitable for d ' fferent occasions and seasons ; a study and use of paper patterns : a study of stitches used in dec- orative art with application to wearing apparel and household ar- ticles ; comparison and test of fibres as to durability, fastness of color, shrinkage and adulteration. This department is one of the most excellent in the school. Sixty-one Forging " Thus at the flaming forge of Life Our fortunes must he wrought. Thus on its sounding an il shaped Each hurning deed and thought. " The forge shop i.«; one of the most interesting and unique depart- ments of the high school. Like the other departments it is strictly up-to-date in every respect. There are twenty-one Sturtevant forges and anvils, including one for the instructor ' s use. Hammers, tongs, flatters, squares and all necessary tools are provided for each student. Besides these individual outfits there are several large ma- chines for general use. The power hammer saves a large amount of work when heavy material is used, while the drill press, car- burundum wlieel, and power shears are invaluable. These machines are run by a five horsepower motor, and the draft and exhaust for the forges are run by ten and fifteen horse- power motors, respectively. The work done by the pupils consists mostly of exercises ; but as more efficiency is gained, more useful things are made, such as pokers, shovels, punches, cold chisels, gate-hooks, and chains. Once a week the class meets and computes the amount of stock needed for the forgings. This is rather hard on those who are rusty in " ' rithmetic. " That the pupils may see how such work is done practically and on a large scale, the classes go each semester to some large factory. The first semester this year, a trip was made to the ' ayne Works, and the second, to the Gaar-Scott plant. These trips proved to be verv beneficial to the students. Thus the already efficient lanual Training department, with such additions as will be made in due time, is second to none in the state and is one of the departments of which Richmond High School well ma}- be proud.- Sh-ty-tK ' o Wood Work (Fro.m a Frksii.max ' s Point of ' ii; v) " For his heart was in his work and the heart Giveth grace unto every Art. " " Say. Jimmy, when you g;et to High School, you must take heiich- work. It ' s fine, I tell vou. Then it ' s new, too, and you want to be up-to-date. " The first year we make furniture, and you ' ll think it ' s heaps of fun, ' specially since we have such dandy tools, ■hy, there isn ' t a high school in the state and but few in the whole country that have manual training equipment superior to ours. When, we make the furniture we have to make a drawing; of each piece before we can construct it. We do that in the mechanical drawing room, where we have dandy drawing sets. Several exercises are required first ; then comes a little tabouret, made of pine, in mission style. Then we make one of birch in any style we want. An oak magazine rack- comes next, then an oak hall-tree. Then, Jimmy, what do you think comes ne-xt? .A library table, of solid oak ! It has a nice, big drawer, and with its big top it ' s just the thing for a study table at home. We can pay for the material ourselves if we want to, and then the pieces are ours to keep. (Otherwise the school sells them. " Do we really make all those things? Why, Mr. AlcClellan says that during the first semester we completed, besides the exercises and things made for the school, twenty-five magazine racks, sixteen hall-trees, thirty-five tabourets, and fourteen library tables. What do _ ou think of that? " So vou see. Jimmv, if there ' s one thing in our good High School that ' s better than another, it ' s benchwork. and you ' ll miss half of vour life if vou don ' t take it. " Si.vty-llirce The Physical Laboratory The Physical department, consisting of two laboratories and a lectnre room, occupies practically all of the north side of the fourth floor. The rooms are heated by duplicate system and are well lighted. Each room is arranged with dark curtains, electrical apparatus and blackboards « ' hich may be moved to expose a white surface for stereopticon. The laboratory which is used during the first semester is equipped with apparatus for twenty-five experiments in duplicate, so that twenty-six pupils may work at the same time upon one experiment. The furniture consists of a stool for each pupil, eight tables and a demonstration table. These tables have soapstone tops into which are sunk blocks of metal that may have supporting rod screwed into them. Another part of equipment is a clock with electrical contacts. so arranged that a telegraph sounder, ticking seconds, connected with it may be placed in either the west laboratory or the lecture room. The lecture room contains an apparatus case fully equipped with 5uch demonstration apparatus as is used in the entire course. In the back of this room is a shelf on which is kept a D ' Arsonval galvanometer which reflects a beam of light on the screen. Between this lecture room and the advanced laboratory is the instructor ' s office, which is provided with an alberene top work table arranged with hot and cold water, gas and electrical apparatus for private experiments. In connection with this room is a large store room. The advanced laboratory occupies the north-east corner of the building and is fully equipped for the .study of heat, light and electricity. This room is furnished with eight tables each accom- modating four students. Each student ' s position is equipped with gas and electricity, the latter being supplied by a switchboard near Sixty- the instructor ' s table. This switchboard is supplied by a 5 h.p. direct connected motor-generator set. The room also contains a demonstration D. C. generator, A. C. motor, and complete switch- board, witli instruments. This motor and generator are belt con- nected. This room contains two large apparatus cases containing suf- ficient apparatus for twenty students to work at the same time on one experiment. One case is devoted exclusively to light apparatus and the other case to electrical apparatus. The entire phvsical equipment is probably worth five thousand dollars. This department is a splendid one. four The Chemistr) Laborator ' The Chemistry laboratory is equipped with working space for thirty-two pupils. These tables are arranged so that the pupils all face in one direction. Each table is provided with gas, hot and cold water, alberene pneumatic troughs, and electric connections for all e.xperiirents in electrolysis. The shelves are of plate glass, and the table tops of acid-proof alberene stone. The lecture table is fitted the same as the student ' s tables, but has, in addition, com- pressed air, and a pedal valve for turning on either hot or cold water by foot pressure to allow free use of the hands in holding the vessel beneath the faucet. . large switchboard back of the lecture table controls the electric currents to the different tables. Two large hoods are provided, each connected with a large exhaust fan in the attic. These hoods have large wire glass doors, hot and cold water, gas, alberene shelves and pneumatic troughs. Connected with this room is a private laboratory for the teachers and an ample store room for chemicals. This laboratorv is equipped with a large amount of apparatus, sufiicient for each pupil doing- individual work to perform all the experiments done in anv high school. Si.vly-fiz ' e The Botany Laboratory Althou rh tlie entire Botany lOom is modern and extraordinarily well equipped in every way. yet the pride of the department is the glass inclosed conservatory. It is twenty by twenty feet in size, opening from the recitation room and facing the west. This is one of the finest high school conservatories in the United States. Steam heat, concave glass and white reflecting walls give heat and light sufficient for the growth of plants of all climatic con- ditions and varieties. Soil benches are provided for potted plants, a trough for water plants and a trellis for vining plants. However, onl - such plants are grown as are of use in the work of the de- partment. Germinating boxes show the earliest stage of develop- ment of native plant life, while the Arizona cactus is uSed to illus- trate the modifying effect of climate. Thus the department, no longer dependent upon the woods alone, can furnish opportunity for the pupils to observe even- phase of plant life. Sixiv-six Puzzle Picture — Find the Chocolates A crowd of us Juniors had assembled in the Hbrary, and, being in quite a happy state of mind, we proceeded to have as good a time as possible without being caught by the ever-watchful librarian. Suddenly Miller arose, walked up to Miss Fo.x and said, inno- cently enough. " May I leave the room a few minutes, please? I forgot something. " She nodded absentmindedly and .Miller, with a wink at us. left. Ere long he returned, carrying a package under one arm. and re- sumed his seat, but not without Miss Fox ' s noticing the package. We were intensely curious as to the contents of that package, but we could not find out with her watching us so. She looked until we became .so nervous that we had to walk around and hunt fur books to keep from doing something desperate. However, we as- sumed as innocent expressions as possible and soon she resumed the making of entries in the interest book. Seeing this. Miller began. He drew the bo-x from under the dictionary and gently, very gentl}-, began unwrapping it. ' e leaned forward in cur excitement, our hearts in our mouths. But just as the paper fell ofif we heard a page of Miss Fox ' s ledger turn. " e jumped — certainly we jumped : why shouldn ' t we? She looked. Slie arose. She approached. Miller, seeminglv resolved to make the best of it, placed the box in the center of the table and reclined comfortably in his chair.

Sixly-scv The Public Art Gallery The Art Gallery is one of the most attractive and unique features of the new building. It is located on the third floor directly above the auditoriimi. and consists of three rooms, the largest on the south, measuring about forty-five b} ' twenty-five feet, and two smaller north of this, each about thirty-five by twenty feet. The rooms are well lighted by large sky lights and the electric lights are arranged to give the best light at all times. Seats and tables are arranged conveniently in all the rooms. In this gallery, the Richmond Art Association holds its annual exhibitions, which were formerly held in the old Garfield building. The Art Association has been in existence fourteen years, and through these annual exhibitions has made Richmond noted through- out the countrv as an art center. The collections of paintings of the . rt .Association is to be kept permanently in the north-east room of the new gallery.

EXHIBITIOXS The first exhibit held in the new gallery was the regular annual exhibition of the Richmond Art Association, in October, 1910. It included about eighty-five canvasses from artists throughout the L ' nited States, and a collection of bronzes, thirty-eight in all, rep- resenting the w ' ork of many of .America ' s greatest bronze workers, in- cluding Janet Scudder. of Xew York : Frederick Remington, of Brooklyn, and others of national reputation. Besides these, there was also a collection of paintings, thirty-two in number, by Indiana artists, entered for the lary T. R. I ' oulke prize. The first prize, of fifty dollars, was awarded by the judges to Robert W. Grafton, of Michigan City. Throughout the month of December was held the Richmond Exhibit. It consisted of pictures and arts and crafts work bv local people. All the Richmond artists and a large number of the workers in arts and crafts had work on exhibition. In January an exhibit of paintings by Birge Harrison was held in the south room of the gallery. It included some thirt ' odd paint- ings and attracted considerable attention. Then in February was held an exhibit of paintings by Robert W. (irafton. consisting of about twenty-eight p aintings. In .April the teachers of the city held an exhibition of the pictures owned by the Richmond schools, including oils, water colors, photo- graphs and prints. The pictures are all owned by the citv schools, each school selecting ten, to make up the total of one hundred pic- tures on exhibition. The last of May an exhibit of children ' s work in drawing, manual training- and domestic art, was held. All the grades in the citv were represented. Sixtv-nine A DREAM IN " TWENTY " As cne who sits at evening o ' er a school book all alone, And muses on the lessons that he must make his own, So idly thro ' my art book I turn to a design. And find the same old features of a drawing rare of mine. Then I hear beneath my study, like a wildly clanging bell, The voices of the children as at basketball they yell : But I have no tiine to listen, for I have to write a theme, Lest thev give me a condition and put me off the team. A page of curving beauty, with som.e forms of airy grace, Float out of mv arm movement at a rapid, swinging pace ; And I smile beneath the glances of a pair of azure eyes, .As the teacher gives me lessons that he knows I just despise. Now, again I feel the pleasure of our teachers all so grand, .As they used to keep me guessing of the future 1 had planned; When I should be a teacher with nothing else to do. But plan the little lessons to set the children to. When children get together and ]ilan things they should not. Or from the school play hookey, and go to some cool spot ; Thev mav enjoy their playing, when they miss their school so fine. But they ' ll find their interest lacking, as I once, alas, found mine. But ah ! my dream is broken by a step upon the stair. And the door is softly opened- -i lr. Neff is standing there! And with eagerness and rapture all my visions I resign. To greet the smiling presence of that principal of mine. R- LPH Snavely, ' 14. The various attitudes held toward the Marion debate, one week before it took place : Mr, Murray — " I just hate that Dcs Moines ! " Eleonora — " If we don ' t win that debate I ' m going straight to Des Moines and stay there. " Virgil (on Sunday night) — " Say, girlie, I don ' t believe in ' corre- lation, ' I believe in ' fusion ' . " Fred — " If we don ' t win that debate, Mr. Murray ' U flunk me in English, I know. " Frances — " Well, Mr. JNInrray, if one of us were to die within the next week, I believe you ' d say, ' Well, why didn ' t you wait until after the debate? ' " .Annual Editors — " Oh, glory ! Here comes those Commission Form of Government people! " Mr. Waldrip — " How far up the waterways do vessels come? J. Thomas — " Schooners have been seen in Richmond. " A NEW ONE FOR OLD AMERICA Pearl (in an agonized tone to the Chairman) — " Doesn ' t ' .America ' mean ' experiment ' ? " Mr. Miu " ray — " Why did Abou Ben Adhem ' s name come first? " English " Shark " — " Because it came in alphabetical order. " Mr. Lamar — " Errett, what are hydro-carbons? " Errett (aroused from a " kid " nap) — " She did? " Bob Thompson — " Say, how are you getting along in the bank? " Paul Overman — " Oh, us girls just have a dandy time I " F.

" Sez ' enty THE TLAV GROLNDS Track and Field Work of 1 9 1 TRACK work for 1910 began very early in the spring, for it was known to all candidates tliat long, hard and constant practice was needed to develop a team at all fit to send to Anderson, to take part in the Ouadrangnlar Meet. For the first few days it looked very bad for R. H. S. with Cotton the only ex- perienced man trying ont. All others were new ; some had never even been in a track suit before. But the coaches, Mr. Brunson and ] Ir. Hamilton, never once lost spirit and worked the men hard on the things which they were best fitted for, and when it came time for them to go to Anderson the men had made up their minds to take at least third place. The team consisted of the following men : Captain Cotton, Hale, Rail-sback, Schepman, John.son, I ' hunmer, Girton, Steinkamp, Barnes, Gifford, Stauber and Miller. All went in to win, but found them- selves in just such a position as the other schools were, when we still had Allison and Hiatt with us. We succeeded, however, in getting enough points to save ourselves from having to take last place. ' hen all points were counted the score stood with Kokomo first, Anderson second, Richmond third, and Marion fourth. Ander- son took the relay race with a whirl and thereb ' got to keep the silver cup which is oft ' ered to the school producing the fastest relay team. Those who made points were GifFord, third in the mile run ; Johnson, third in the broad jump: and Miller, first in the high hurdles. Another, and more successful, meet was held June 11th, at the Public Playgrounds. This was an Interscholastic meet between two teams chosen by Mr. Hamilton and ( )rville Brunsor. and were known as the Whites and Reds respectively. The Reds ' Von this meet by the score of 69 to 48. Barnes, of the Reds, was the individual star of the meet, winning twenty-two points, with Miller second, making nineteen points for the ' hites. Because of the heavy condition of the new cinder track at the Play-grounds, the time made in most of the track events was very slow. The sunimarv was as follows : Sez ' cnty-one 59 yard dash— PKimmer (W), Barnes (R). Miller ( V). Running broad jump — Barnes (R), Sieweke (W), JVIiller (W). 100 rard dash— Barnes (R), Miller (W), Plunimer (W). High jump — Girton (R), Hoover (R), Fitzgibbons (W). 120 yard high hurdles— Miller (W), Cotton (R). Plumnier (W). 880 yard run— Cotton (R), Railsback (W), Hale (R). 220 yard hurdles— Shallenburg (Rj, Hale (R). Cotton (R;. 220 yard handicap— Plumnier (W), Barnes (R). White (R). Discus hurl— Hale (R), Miller (W), Railsback ( Vj- Pole vault— Shallenburg (R). Barnes (Rj, Miller (W). Shot put— Ferling (R), Cox (W), Railsback (W). 440 yard dash— Miller ( V), Barnes (R), Darnell (W). Basketball THE basketball season was opened earlier than has been the cnstom, as there was no football this year. A schedule of gan:es between the four classes was arranged by represen- tatives of the various classes. The Freshmen won by a good margin, losing only one out of nine games played. The Juniors were second and the Sophomores third, the " cellar position " being occupied by the redoubtable Seniors. The call for candidates for the varsity was made the week fol- lowing the close of the class schedule. The first game was played with Portland the Friday of that week. This was lost by a score of 26 to 18- As this was the first week of practice, and no five men had played together, as a team, the result was not surprising. The next Saturday the team lined up against the strong Ander- son team in the " Y " gymnasiimi. Partly because of the inability of the home team to play together and partlx ' on account of the strength and roughness of the visitors, the game resulted in a defeat for Richmond by the score of 32 to 18. The next week the fast team from Marion, with the same line-u]) that our last year ' s team fought so well, put in its appearance and, in one of the fastest games ever played in the " Y " gym, defeated Richmond by a score of 57 to 12. The team practiced hard during the Christmas vacation, and as a result the quality of basketball shown in the next game was far superior to that played in the thcee preceding ones. Yet again Rich- Se monil, by a score of 20 to 19, to Selma, a town already celebrated as the home of our " expounder of hexameters. " The week following, the game with the facultx- was played, but we will speak more of this later. The next week the team went to Union City. Here open team work was impossible, as the floor was more like a bowling alley than a basketball floor. The game went to Union, 48 to 14. In the next game, Richmond showed her disheartened followers that lhe - could play basketball, if conditions were in any way favor- able, by defeating Connersville, here, bv a score 26 to 25, yet Con- nersville had a stronger team than Union. The next game was at Selma. Here one of the team was heard to say, " Old Garfield Gym would be a paradise to Union and Selma. " and lateir Portland was added. He was right; Selma won 36 to 15. The starting of the new semester put new life into the team. Barnes was declared eligible and was made center in time for the Union game here. That the floor was the cause of the defeat at Union was clearly shown at this game, for the Union team was defeated here by the score of 29 to 22. The Friday following was the great night for R. H. S. The team played Rushville before the Earlham-Rose Poly game. Richmond used pretty team work and won by a score of 30 to 29. after the closest and most exciting contest of the season. The team went to iNlarion the ne.xt week. The game was fast iity-tico and rough, and spectacular, because of the acrobat ' c feats pulled off by the Richmond boys, in trying to avoid violent contact with the floor, because it was better adapted to dancing tlian to basket- ball. ] [arion won 38 to 19. The next game, with Connersville, was the only over-time game of the season. After five minutes of over-time, Connersville made the score 18 to 16. The next game was at Portland. Mere the team was again hand- icapped by conditions that made their style of play impossible, and Portland won 20 to 11. The last game was played at Rushville, when Fvichmond was de- feated 43 to 17. The big game of the season was the one with the Facultv, before the largest crowd of the season. The faculty line-up was Miller and Horton, forwards; Waldrip, center; Menk, IMcClellan and Winjum, guards; and Thompson, sub. The game was so fast and hotly contested that Waldrip fainted from exhaustion. It required five minutes for Surgeon Kelly, ' ater-boy Lamar. Official Torrence and the " Candy Kid " Xefif to bring liim back. As their star men, i Iurrav and Hill, were called out of town, the facultv lost the game. ■ BOVS " B-- SKETB. LL Ie.XM The members of the R. H. S. team for 1910-11 were: Laning and Taggart. forwards ; Hoover and Barnes, centers, both terrors to restaurant owners; and Mayer, captain, and Schepman. who were always to be found after the game in some post-card store, guards.

' Sevciily-threc Tennis Baseball CONSIDERABLE interest has been manifested in tennis al- though it is not as great as it should be in consideration of the facihties offered. Besides the courts owned by several clubo, there are four public courts. For each court, there is a full equipment, which may be used by school people free of charge, after they have paid their athletic dues, and by persons outside of school at a nominal cost. These courts are kept in good condition during the tennis season and are open for use after school, on Saturdays, and all the time during vacation. Last year a handicap tournament was held. Interest in this was strong until just before the time for the finals, the school letter, which had been promised to the winner and runner up, was refused, even though it had been given the year before in the same sort of a tournament. However, the finals were played, Taggart winning in a very slow match. Another tournament will be organized for this year and " R ' s " have been promised to the winner and runner up. Since every one who entered last year is still in the school and will probably enter, the tournament promises to be hotly contested. Eel Williams — " Lucy can be my Taylor any day. " " Drip " — " Well, if Lucy won ' t be my Taylor, .Anna May. " W. D. W. — " Well, I just happen to remember that I have two engagements for the same time. Now what shall I do? " Royden P. — " Put one on each side. " " Hap " — Are you going to wear that sweater to the dance to- night? Haven ' t you a white collar? " " Red " — " Yes, I have lots of white collars, but tliey are both in the wash. " IN ANSWER to an announcement from the chapel stage early- last spring, about twenty-five fellows came out for practice. After a few scrub games, the two promoters of this sport, Messrs. Waldrip and Tonrence, each chose a team and named it after himself. The " Drippies " were captained by Elmer Johnson, and the " Tubbies " by John Longstreth. A schedule was arranged between the two teams and a most interesting series of games followed. The pennant was won by the " Drippies " after some hard fought games. In mid-season, the teams l eing anxious for a try at some other schools, a schedule under the management of Mr. Hamilton was attempted. This was impossible because there were no other teams in this part of the state within reasonable distance, and this plan was dropped. The teams disbanded after a most successful season. The season of 1911 was started auspiciously by a large meeting, about thirty-five candidates being present. The plans of the man- ager, Mr. Waldrip, were announced. They were for a season of preparation and then for a try at some of the teams in nearbv towns. This was heartil) ' approved of by the meeting. The captains for the two scrub teams were elected. ' The - were John Longstreth and Albert Mayer. Both are experienced men. It is planned for the teams to have a series of games to weed out the material and then to pick the school team from the best remain- ing players. Miss Hawkins — " How do you find the area of a circle? " Taggart — " Multiply the four sides together. Charles S. — " They say there are germs in kisses. " Zadelle — " Xow what could I catch from a kiss? " Charles (boldly)— " Me. " d die fast Seventy-four Lraci ' e Baseball Teams Scveiity-five Girls ' Basketball BECAUSE the gymnasium was not in condition, we were not able to begin basketball until the first of the year. Then only two scheduled games were played before the end of the fall semester. Th!s semester we were reorganized as follows: Yale Prixcetox ll.VKV .- RD Wx.S.S.VR Scott ( Capt. ) Shute ( Capt. ) Xicholson (Capt.) Shaw ( Capt. ) ' ogelsong Gift Kaufman Xusbaum W ' ickemeyer Crabb, -A I. Porter Ray Crabb, I. ' Hunt Beck Poiilenz Bullach Stevenson Cromer Holzapfel Sperling Kamp Converse Shera, R.

Up to this time Scott has not been beaten and Xicholson has never won. Shute beat twice and lost twice ; Shaw did the same. On Saturday afternoon, February 25, last term ' s basketball ,girls gave the " newies " a spread in the Gym. Just preceding the spread, in order to get up an appet te. two picked teams played " the best basketball game the girls have played. " Sez ' eii The queer thing about this game was that not a snigle foul was made. Think what that meant ! It meant that Porter didn ' t push, that Crabb didn ' t crowd, that Gift didn ' t guard too closely, that Kaufman didn ' t run with the ball, and that Kamp didn ' t step over a line. In the first half Vogelsong threw three baskets and Xicholson one. Xusbaum threw four for the Whites. Eight in all I In the last half the Whites began to be discouraged, for what do you think? Scott ' s hair wasn ' t coming down ! The falling of her hair was al- wai,-s a sign of victory. They didn ' t know what to do. The ' r interest began to flag. Again they looked. Xo, it wasn ' t coming down. Added to this was the fact that ' ickemeyer had a long, flowing mane. Both of these signs tokened ill : accordingly they gave up in despair and A ' ogelsong, taking an unfair advantage of their lack of self-confidence, threw two of the cleanest baskets she ty-si.r Li-; t.i !■: L ' .. KtTii. LL " Feams ever threw. This left the score 12 to 8. Xevertheless, it helped the Whites ver} ' much, for when Scott A as instructed not to fasten her hair so securely after this, she faithfully proniised not to. It is this simple fact which makes her this term ' s champion. As to the spread — that doesn ' t need mentioning. It goes without saying that even the stately Ir. R. J. Horton, Physical Director, was laid up for a whole week after it. Miss Com.stock had an eye on every one present and three times she had to leave her place at the west end of the Gym to tell Ir. filler, who sat at the east end. that he mustn ' t eat two olives and two lairge sized bites of the " vellow salad " all at once.

Sczcnty-sn ' cii nf The Gymnasium and Gymnasium Work AT THE old building, as every one knows, there was no gym- nasium, so whenever the basketball team practiced, or a gym- nasium was needed for any purpose, it was necessary to go to the Y. ] I. C. A. But now we are in the possession of one of the finest and best equipped gymnasiums in the state. It is fully equipped with stall-bars, chest we ' ghts, climbing poles, traveling rings, ladders, and the usual portable apparatus, and it is well adapted to playing basketball and volley ball. One of the many good qualities is the exceptionally good lighting from four large skylights. As there is no place for spectators except along the walls, where they would interfe re with the players, and a .small space in the east end, all the basketball games, with the exception of the one with Portland, have been held in the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium. The interclass games and all basketball practice is held here, however. Gymnasium work is held four days a week, two for the boys and two for the girls. The course of work is outlined and graded through four years, two of which ace offered in Garfield, and the other two in High School. The two years in Garfield and the first year in High School are compulsory and credit for one year ' s work is required for graduation. The only requirement for physical train- ing is that the student undergo a thorough physical examination at the beginning of the semester. Sciriity-eighf Die Basz=Qeige jT ' AS about two o ' clock, on the afternoon of June ' third, and the High School orchestra was to go to Lewisville to play at a concert that night. " Herr 1 Professor " Walter Becker (so called because he I was principal double-bassist, assistant conductor, ' had moderately long hair, and talked German about half the time) was sauntering down High Street with his " dog- house " banging on his shoulder, scattering the innocent pedestrians right and left, just as if the sidew ' alk had been reserved for him that afternoon. He was just about to turn into Washington Street to go to the depot, when he saw label Klein coming out of a store across the street. He stopped and whistled. She heard it and waited for him to cross the street. " .Sorry you ' re not going with us, " he said. " We usually have a time. They should have taken you instead of Edwards, even if he has been in longer. He ' ll never be able to play. You ' ll miss a good time. " " And miss getting back at three o ' clock in the morning. Not I. But I suppose one gets used to it. " " Yes, I am. Let ' s go into Kranz ' s and have a farewell soda. I may never get back alive with this thing. Wtinschte dasz Ich piccolo spielte. " They went inside, she holding the door open while he brought the bass-fiddle in to the amusement of the clerks and the waiters. But she didn ' t mind them. Then two " banana specials " and a good half hour were consumed. When they were again outside he said, " Come on, and walk down to the station with me. The train doesn ' t leave till two-fifty, so there ' s plenty of time far a stroll. " They started slowly down the street to the depot. Vhen they were about three squares from the station, Mabel interrupted a long discourse of his about his prospects for the summer. " It strikes me we ' d better hurry. What time have you? " " Viertel nach zwei, " he said absently. " Good heavens ! Walt, your watch has stopped ! That clock on the corner has two-forty-seven. " " Good night ! " veiled Walt, and started on a run, as fast as he could go, carrying the double-bass. JNIabel followed him, she didn ' t know why. He was out of breath, however, about a block from the depot, and started to slow down, when " crash ! " Walt had stepped on a slippery spot and fallen back on the bass. The next thing Mabel saw was a mixture of double-bass, " Professor " Becker and a select assortment of elocjuence in a heap on the sidewalk. Walt finally extricated himself and stood ruefully gazing at the ruin. " Are you hurt, Walter? " asked Mabel anxiously. " Me? No, but that fiddle is. If I ain ' t the blamedest fool ! Broke the bass and missed the train. Be t Ohrman ' s about wild. I was to play a solo tonight. ]Mabel, watch this mess till I go telegraph that train and tell Ohrman I ' ll get there, somehow. " He walked to the station, sent the telegram and returned about ten minutes later. " Well, that ' s done. It ' s up to me to find another bass and then get to Lewisville. Hang it ! Not much left of this old ' grandfather ' , " he said, uncovering the bass carefully. " Hello ! It ' s not so bad. Neck broken loose ; fingerboard smashed where I fell on it ; a big crack in the side and the sound- post fallen over. A little trip to a good repairer in Chicago, a little glue, a new fingerboard and about twenty dollars and he ' ll be the same old ' granddad ' . " " Hey, you ! " he yelled at a merchant ' s delivery wagon going by. " Take me and this thing home. See you tomorrow, label. " Lie picked the bass up carefully, deposited it in the wagon and started to get in, too. ghty " Wait, Walt. " " Where are you going to get auotlicr bass? " " I ' ll get ' illiam ' s. Plays at the Majestic. Oh, Hiniuiel! he told me yesterday that he had to pla}- a commencement job at Har ' ' isburg tonight. He ' s gone by this time and there isn ' t another bass in town fit to play a solo on. " " I ' ll tell you what. " " Just a minute, " Walt turned to the driver of the wagon and gave him some directions. " Wait till I get there, " he said as the wagon drove off. " Don ' t try to unload it. " " Now, what is it? " " Uncle George, over at Conncrton. has a fine bass. It used to be his grandfather ' s. You ' ll have to go there and then take the inter- urban to get to Lewisville, won ' t you? " " Yes. " " Well, suppose I go along to Conncrton and get I ' ncle Georgr to lend vou a bass, then maybe he will take us over to Lewisville ii ' . liis machine. It ' s only seven miles. " " Mabel, jou ' re a star. I ' ll never be able to thank you enough We can get a train for Conncrton at four-thirty. We ' ll have to hustle. I ' ll take the car home and unload the bass and meet you again at the C. E. I. depot at four-fifteen. Well, here ' s your car. See vou later. " About twenty minutes till eight a big gray car pulled up in front of the High School building in Lewisville. A girl carrying a suit- case got out followed by a bass-fiddle, then the " Professor. " and finally " L ' ncle George " Klein. " Come on in, L ' ncle George. " cried Mabel. " No, I ' ll come to the concert and meet you two here afterwards and take you back to Conncrton for a few days. " " All right. Good-bye ! " Walt and JNIabel went on into the building and finally found the auditorium and the rest of the orchestra. The director was pacing up and down in the ante-room, smoking a cigar. Walt went out to him. " Well, we ' re here. " he said. " Thanks to Mabel. " " That ' s evident. " replied the director. " I was just about dis- tracted. " " That ' s evident, too, " rejoined Decker. " You have even so far forgotten yourself as to be found smoking a cigar in a school build- ing in the presence of a number of young and tender high school children. " " Well. I ' ll be hanged! " said Mr. (Jhrman. coming to. and throw- ing the cigar away. " Well, get your fiddle ready. It starts in fifteen minutes. " Hubekt Coxover Smith.

The " Dark Koom " Mr. Lamar was preparing to give a lecture table experiment in the Chemistry class. Wallace GiiTord, interested in the e.xperi- men " -, absentmindedly put his hand on the adjoining seat, occupied by Margaret Ferguson, leaving his arm hang over the back of the chair. Will Kloecker, who sat directly behind, saw this and tenderly placed Wallace ' s arm across the back of Margaret ' s chair. Just at this point Mr. Lamar, busy with the experiment, said, " Wallace, will you please go to the ' dark room ' " He got no further, for the class burst into loud laughter. Gifford turned red up to his hair, and disengaged his arm, while INIr. Lamar, after a good laugh, finally brought the class to order. The he continued — " Wallace, will you please bring me that large glass jar, that I left on the shelf in the ' dark room ' ? " Eighty-two WINNERS OF PRELIMINARY DEBATE " TRY-OUT Interscholastic Debating THE history of the past year has been one of steady growth, and general betterment of the school and school life. And with these better conditions has come into the school some- thing that comparatively few of the high schools of the state can boast of — an Interscholastic Debating Team. The interscholastic debating owes its existence to the success of the .Senior and Junior debating leagues, which were organized this year. Shortly after the two leagues were well started, challenges were sent to the Marion, Muncie, Anderson and Kokomo High Schools. The subject for debate in each challenge was, " Resolved, That the Commission Plan of Government is desirable and prac- ticable for all the cities of the United States. " One of the replies from these schools was favorable and plans were then made to have our first debate with jMarion at Marion, April twenty-eighth. Richmond had the negative side of the question. As soon as the interscholastic debating became more of a reality, one member of the Senior league and one of the Junior league were chosen to make an appeal to the Board of Control for some kind of a distinguishing mark if the team were successful. The two mem- bers gave a very strong argument before the Board which, after thinking over the matter, decided to award the team with an " R " similar to the athletic " R, " if they made a creditable showing. About this time the Earlham team was preparing for a debate with Albion on the same subject that we had, and as it would be good experience for both teams, a debate was arranged for. Al- though no decision was given, the High School team made a very creditable showing. 11 the debates held the second semester in the two leagues were on the same question as the one to be held with iNIarion. In ar- ranging the league debates in this way the debaters became much High School Dedatin ' g Te. m better acquainted with the subject and in addition received invaluable practice in giving their speeches. On March sixteenth, the preliminary " tr -out " was held. In this try-out any student of the school was eligible, and of the nine who were entered six were given places. The six were : Jennie Steven- son, Lila Stevenson. N irgil Porterfield. Eleonora Shute. Fred Girtv and Frances O ' Brien. After another week of hard work the final was held and the team was chosen. Those who won places on the final team were : Eleonora Shute, Frances O ' Brien and Fred Girty. irgil Porterfield was chosen as alternate. After much hard work on the part of the team and Mr. Murray and Mr. XeiT, the debate was held at Marion on April tvventy-eig ' hth. The weather was bad, but that only seemed to fire the ardor of all concerned rather than dampen it, and our team won a grand victory for R. H. S., the decision being- unanimous. After this it was decided to challenge the Crawfordsville team which had won on the affirmative side of the same question, and also Shortridg ' e High School. Crawfordsville declined the chal- lenge. A debate with Shortridge was then arranged for.

Air. Murray called a meeting shortly before the holidays, and the plans of the organization were then made. It was decided to have four teams with three members each and to keep a record of the number of games won and lost b ' each team ; the team having the highest percentage at the end of the year would be awarded the League honors. The teams were designated as A, B, C and D respectively, with Stanley Lindstrom. Hubert Smith, Freda Seifert and Eleonora Shute as captains of the respective teams. The captains and Mr. Murray were to constitute an Executive Committee, to choose questions, judges and carry on any business of the or- ganization. The debates were to be held on Thursdav evenings and to be open to all interested in debating. -At this time it was also decided to accept a challenge from the Earlham Freshmen on the question. " Resolved. That the Commission Form of Government should be adopted by cities of the L ' nited States of twent ' thousand inhabitants or more. " - s preparation for this debate it was decided to hold the first league debate on the same question. This debate was between teams A and B and was won by team B which had the affirmative, the side we were to have in the Earlham debate. The debate with Earlham was one of the most successful debates of the season. The Earlham debaters were : Blair Converse, Clifford Eighty I ' lummer and Everett ' ood. The High School debaters: Eleonora Shute, Stanley Lindstrom and Hubert Smith. The debate was held in the chapel and there was a fair-sized audience, composed of loyal supporters of both teams, showing that the students were interested in the success and promotion of debating in the school. Best of all. the judges imanimously decided in favor of our team. The next debate was held January twelfth, on the subject. " Re- solved, That the citv would be justified in removing the car tracks from Glen Park and charging the expenses to the Traction Com- panv. " Teams C and D debated and the decision was awarded to D, which upheld the affirmative. The following Thursday teams B and C debated the question. " Re. olved. That the Literary test should be applied to all voters of the L ' nited States. " Alany interesting points were brought out by each team and it proved one of the best debates of the season. The decision was awarded to team C. which upheld the negative. The next debate, on " Resolved. That Life Imprisonment should be substituted for Capital Punishment. " was decided by teams A and D a:id was won by the latter on the negative. The next debate was on the question of fortifying the Panama Canal. It was between teams A and C, and the judges decided that team A with the affirmative was in the right. The last debate of the first semester was between the teams B and D and was on the question. " Resolved, That equal suffrage should be given the women of the L-nited States. " This question four has been debated so many times that one thinks that it would be uninteresting, but these teams went so at the root of the cause that I am sure if we all could have been there, we would have found it very interesting as well as amusing. We were all much surprised when it was requested that we all should meet in the Gymnasium immediatel} ' after the debate, and what do you think we found upon arriving down there? ' ell, in the middle of the floor was a " spread " able event of the season, but how could it be any otlier way when such a fine company of people come together to have a good time : and then we had become so familiar and well acquainted with each other tliat it seemed just like a big family picnic. Yuu will all agree that we could not possibly discontinue such a successful organization, so with the coming of the next semester we started right in again, determined to have such an enjoyable time SeM ' jk Deb. t]ng LE. GL ' t: that would make one stop in astonishment. Really, one would have to look around him and glance at the familiar gymnasium apparatus to satisfy himself that he was at an indoor picnic and not at Glen jMiller Park or some other picnic grounds. But it was not until we had informally seated ourselves on the floor and eaten all that we could that we found that the girls could certainly cook just as well as debate. This little gathering was the most successful and enjo - Eiglity-Hz ' e as we had the first semester. More or less reorganization was neces- sary, as two of our members were compelled to drop the work to spend their time on the .Annual, and two others dropped out. Still. by securing one new member and combining teams E and C with Charles Smith as cajJtain, we arranged matters .satisfactorily and went ahead with the work. This semester ' s work was all devoted to the question, " Resolved, K HE ' S A JACK OF ALL TRADES Lucy was humming " John Brown ' s Bod) ' . " Chas. — " That ' s touching!

The Seniors organized a league early in the year and we followed the example set for us by our elders. It was in December that three Juniors, with the help of Mr. iMurray, succeeded in calling a meeting of all Juniors interested in debating. Verv good results were obtained for there were twelve pupils present in answer to the call. The purpose of the meeting was fully stated by JMr. J Iurray. The constitution was about the same as that adopted by the Seniors. There was some discussion Eigliiv as to how the teams should be chosen, but finally the chair was di- rected to appoint Mr. Murrav a committee of one to select the teams. Russell Gustin, Fred Girty, Mary Mather and Edwin Flook were elected captains of teams A, B, C and D respectively. As provided by the constitution, the captains constituted an executive committee which was to attend to all business of the club, select questions and judges and make out a schedule. The executive committee met and elected Russell Gustin chair- man and Mary i Iather secretary ; Fred Girty was appointed to se- cure judges for all debates: Edwin Flook was appointed to look for suitable questions to bring before the meetings. At this meeting two questions were selected. The questions, " Resolved, That the school initial should be granted for a success in oratory or debate, " and " Resolved, That life imprisonment should be substituted for capital punishment, " were debated during the first semester. At the next meeting of the executive it was decided to take up the question that Richmond presented to Marion for the inter- schoiastic debate. The schedule was so arranged that each team would debate both sides of the question. " Re.solved, That the Com- mission form is desirable and practicable as a form of government for the cities of the United States. " After this schedule was over tlrere were five Juniors to enter the preliminary try-out. Of this number three were selected to enter the finals. On the team selected to meet Marion the Juniors have one representative, Fred Girty. So much interest was shown in debating the class of ' 12, that in Februarv a new league consisting of three teams was organ- ized, the constitution of this new league is about the same as that of the old league. Howard Messick, Hilton Long and Ra mond Kelley are captains of the teams. The executive committee met and decided that the first question should be, " Resolved, That Richmond ' s right and left ordinance is a good one. This was the onh ' debate held in the new league so far. The Juniors have resolved to keep debating alive for some time to come. The Board of Control, always ready to aid in financial matters, has offered to buy a parchment and frame on which the names of the winners of these leagues shall be inscribed and be hung in the library, there to be an inspiration to the Jimiors that shall follow in our footsteps. With such aid and inducements as we have alread}- recei -ed. we expect to carrv it on in our Senior ) ' ear with even greater enthusiasm and to make ovir success such that debating will always be an im- portant feature in High School life.

Muffins ggW3ACK had always imagined that Nelle would be an J ' ( ) ideal cook, but tonight he was going to lind out fi n- sure. She was going to be in the cooking pjj class that would be held that night after the dedica- - ,-_-I@) ' ' ' " exercises were over. They were going to te_fe| make muffins and while they were not supposed to giv, ' any away, yet Xelle had promised to slip one out to him if he came around. And he was going. Oh, yes, he was going ! After the exercises were over he stood around in the hall awhile, looking into the kitchen about every two seconds. Then, not wish- ing to appear too anxious, he decided to walk around the building while those muffins were baking. How ridiculously uninteresting that building was ! Vh ' , he had been all over it, visited everything from the forge room to the fudge party, and within ten minutes was back, edging his way through the crowd that stood about the kitchen watching the class. How stupid of them ! They couldn ' t have any muffins, so why on earth did they stand around and block the wa_ ' of people who could ? . t last he caught a glimpse of X ' elle. How charming she looked in that pretty white frilled apron, and what a prett ' air of house- wifely importance she had! How daintily she handled everything! How much nicer she looked and did than the other girls ! At last Nelle saw him and hurried across the room. Jack, what ' s the matter? flavored with? " " Oh, Jack, " she whispered. " I have been watching for you. They ' re lovely. Here.

Ye gods and little fishes! What was the matter? His face puckered in spite of himself. ' Is it good? " asked Xelle. " W ' li; " I — oh, I say — why, what are they " Lemon, " she answered, anxiously, " Isn ' t it all right? Oh, maybe I forgot to flavor it at all ! " " Why — a — er — but didn ' t you put some alum in them? My — why — a — my mouth feels about as big as a thimble. " " Alumn ! " she ahr.ost shrieked. " Why, no, of course not. Why. Jack. " almost tearfully, " aren ' t they good? " " Oh. yes, yes! Sure, they ' re fine! I just wondered about the flavor. " he assured her, " but I must go now. Thanks awfully for the muffin. " With that he hurried out. and when once safelv in the hall jammed that muffin into his pocket, exclaiming: ■A ' ell, let them say what they please. I ' ll have no more faith in cooking schools. The kind of muffins Mother makes are good enough for Willie. " Hersciiel T. Trueelood. ' 12. Eighlv-nitte j t A t XA X L l L X L X L L X J Board of Control PRIOR to the time of the establishment of a Board of Control in the Richmond High School, athletics and all school activ- ities were promoted and cared for in a haphazard and un- systematic manner by the student body. The athletics especially, were of a type not conducive to a good High School spirit and the careless management of the different school functions often left the school in debt, which tended to establish a bad name for the school in the community. The first notion of a Board of Control grew out of the State Athletic Association seven years ago, for seeing the advantage of this association Richmond, as well as South Bend, Wabash, Indian- apolis, jNIadison and others, decided to establish Boards of Control in the High Schools. The Board of Control was first organized in the Richmond High School in September, 1908. It consists now, as it did then, of six members, three chosen from the faculty by the students, and three from the student body by the faculty. These members are chosen at the beginning of each fall semester and serve for the following year. The constitution provides for a regular meeting each month of the school year, but other meetings are held at the call of the president when some important matter is to be considered. The principal is also in attendance at these meetings. The constitution also states that the president, vice-president, and secretary shall be appointed from the student members and the treasurer from the facult}- members. These officers are elected at the first meeting of the board. The board, when first organized, merely had charge of the ath- letics of the school. It made rules by which those athletics, which were not provided for in the I. H. S. A. A. rules, could be conducted. It made rules and regulations for the awarding of " Rs " to eligible members of the different games, and for the use of the apparatus. It financed the teams and appointed one of the members of the faculty as a common manager for all athletic teams. At the reorganization in 1909 it was decided that the board in addition to these duties, should have authority in all affairs per- taining to the school. It now takes charge of and financiers all school activities, such as class plays, the Fall Festival or Carnival, the . ' nnual, the sending of school representatives, of oratorical or literary merit, to other schools, and all things deemed worthy of support, in connection with the life of the school. Thus the Board of Control, standing for the joint management of the students and faculty over most of the school activities, tends to bring about their co-operation, and not only does it create a mutual interest, but, by bringing them together in a confidential and intimate way, it has done more to make the faculty and students closer and better friends than anything else in the school.

Waldrip THE College Club was first organized in December. 1909. All Junior and Senior boys and such others as the club may elect are eligible for membership and become active members on pa3 ' ment of dues. Its purpose is to encourage bo_ s to go to college, by interesting them in college life ; to enable a boy to choose the col- lege best fitted for the line of work he wishes to take up ; and finally, to suggest or provide ways by which boys of limited means may get a college education. Ninely-iwo The first meeting of the present school year was held September 30, 1910, in the Y. M. C. A., and the officers for the first semester were elected. The second meeting was held October 14. At this meeting a number of new members were received and interesting letters from Mr. Brunson and Ed Cox were read. Then Mr. X ' eff gave some very interesting reminiscences of life at DePauw. Following this were refreshments. On January 20, 1911, Professor Scott of Earlham gave an inter- esting ' and very instructive talk. Then several representatives of the Domestic Science Department served sandwiches, escalop ' ed oysters, pickles and coffee. This meeting was held in the club ' s new quarters in room t vent -two, and Toll-call showed a record attendance, thirty-seven being present. Cm February 24, officers were elected for the present semester and then Mr. lurray gave a talk on " The Editorial Side of News- paper Work. " We ha ' e not space enough to give an account of each meeting; sufTice it to say that Mr. Alenk, Dr. Holmes, Mr. Miller, Mr. Mc- Clellan, Mr. lurray, and several " hikes " were among the other attractions, and any of the members will testify that one is missing something if he is not a member of the College Club.

Well, you certainly are new if you ask that, be- cause through an article in the Indianapolis Star we are known all over the country. Anywhere in a radius of four miles of Richmond, we are known personally to every living creature, for there isn ' t a dog that hasn ' t barked at us, a chicken that hasn ' t run squawking out of our way. a horse that hasn ' t shied at us. a cow with horns that hasn ' t scar — a — hindered our progress, nor a single farmer who hasn ' t told us how far to town (and given us a lift). ' e are the walkers of the R. H. S. The originator of the club walked clear up to Chicago, and they kept him. And we all have wor?! ovit so many shoes that one Cincinnati firm asked whatever had happened. It was told of us, and, after enlarging the factory, it used our picture as its advertisement, since we are the best patrons. And, since we wear out so many shoes, walking has become our second nature. We walk over the country, we walk over the town ; we walk as we study, we walk as we eat. and some of us walk as Ninety-four we sleep. But we don ' t even stop there.

L. Murray Edith Tallant Anna Fin frock THE Kit-Kat Club was organized a year ago by the English Department. Since then we have been given a room for our own use and we meet the eighth period every other Thursday. Mr. Murray- is so busy this year he could not help us much, so now we are in charge of liss Finfrock, wdio takes a kindly interest in our affairs. If vou will look at the picture you will readily see that we are as brilliant as our name. But do not be afraid of us on that account, for we welcome nearly anyone aspiring to literary or dramatic fame. But we are exclusive, for every one who belongs must get not less than seventy-five per cent, in his studies. ' e are very proud of the music w e are able to have. Perhaps ou would like to know that some of ns can sing. These members gladly sing for us songs that we feel sure are not to be heard any- where else in the school. Beside these we nearly always have some one to play on the piano. The club has developed some excellent readers, so that one of the most interesting parts of our programs are the selections read from standard authors. This is not as serious as it sounds, how- ever, for most of them are humorotis stories, often read in dialect. We are trying- to do more outside reading in connection with the club work. This alwavs leads to discussions which become so ex- Nincty-six citing- tliat some of the meirbers can hardly keep their seats and have to be reminded of parKamentary law. We also hear a number of thrilling stories written for the benefit of the club and appreciate them immensely and try not to question the truth of these tales, particularly when the writer tells us some of his own experiences. This } ' ear we resolved to give a play. At last wc decided on the playlet, " Courtship Under Difficulties. " It was hard to choose the cast, for at that time there were no boys to take the parts. But such a trifle as that did not disturb us long. We wanted it to be a great success, but there was so little stage scenery it all depended on the actors. Marjorie Curme, in Mr. Lamar ' s overcoat, made an ardent lover, and Katherine Ensminger became a charming heroine when she had on a long skirt; Marian Stevenson acted the part of the cousin. There was a large audience present: in fact, it was so large that those who made the cocoa ( the Kit-Kat Club believes in refreshn:ents) would not care to tell what part of it was water. ' e know that it was good, all the same, because Mr. Neff asked for more. 7p The Kit-K. t Clcd Kincfv-scz ' cu Esther Crockett Maurine Converse Marguerite Border Ed H.

The purpose of the society is to give its members a better under- standing of dramatic art, and to acquaint them with the his- tory of the drama. To gain this latter, a number of programs will be given at the meetings, which, when completed will cover the field of English drama, from the early " Miracle " and " Morality " plays down to the present. The first program was given on April tenth. It consisted of a talk on the beginnings of English drama, by Mr. Murray ; a resume of the myster) ' play — " Abraham and Isaac, " and of the morality play — the " 4 P ' s. " The second program was taken from " Ralph Roister Doister. " Following this are to be given — " Tamburlaine. " by Christopher Madowe, and " The School for Scandal, " by Sheridan : and finally some modern drama, to be chosen later. Ninety-eight The Dramatic Society A ' iiietv-nine A FEW vears ago in our high .- chool a ladies ' chorus was or- ganized under the direction of Mr. Earhart. It numbered about fort - voung ladies and vcr}- high-class work was done. After a few ears, however, the director found that he could not give sufficient time to it, so, as it was not credited work, the Ladies ' Chorus was given up. Since that time no real chorus work has been done, except inci- dentally in the Critical Study class, until the beginning of the present school year. When the new course of study was planned, it was derided to after chorus work as a credited subject. For attendance at two re- hearsals a week, two-tenths credit is given: or one-tenth for one rehearsal. About eighty were enrolled in chorus work the first semester. After all the voices had been tested (which is the only requirement), the class was organized, with very good results. Part-songs, folk- songs and a few large choruses were rehearsed, and the Chorus made one appearance in cha]3el, with the following program: Canoii: — For the Lord is a Might}- God (95th Fia m) ... .Mendelssohn The Two Roses Fran: Abl The Hussars Storch In Dublin ' s Fair City Old Irish The enrollment increased to one hundred and five at the begin- ning of the February term, showing that the chorus is an attractive feature of the school work. ' ith the aid of the new members the chorus was better organized, so that, as the ability of the chorus gro-.vs, more difficult and effective numbers can be studied. The Chorus appeared in chapel again on April twelfth, giving this program : The Dawn, from " Martlia " Flozi ' lozc a Oh. Beware ! Drcgert b Lo e ' s Sorrow Italinn Folksong c The Dawning Light Ce ' sar Cni Sailor ' s Song, from " The Flying Dutchman " Wagner One hundred The Chorus expects to sing again before the end of the semester. The purpose of the Chorus is best stated by its director, Air. Earhart — " We wish to learn choruses and art songs that are the best ex- amples of musical art. Our main objects are to acquire ability as chorus-singers : to learn intelligent management of the vo ' ce as far as this can be done without systematic, individual attention ; and to increase musical understanding and appreciation.

It has increased steadily from its organization in 1899 as a mandolin club, until it now numbers fifty-four pieces. Formerly the orchestra had to take what came in the matter of players, and, of course, a vascillating and often insufficient instru- mentation resulted. In 1908, to remedy this, the plan of buying- instruments, to be placed in the hands of industrious and capable pupils, was conceived. The money for this was raised by a special issue of the Reflector, and two French-horns, a bassoon; an oboe, a trombone and kettle-drums were purchased. Last spring two violas were added, and more instruments are to be bought this spring. These instruments are placed in the hands of pupils, who, as soon as they become reasonably proficient in the handling of them, are admitted into the orchestra, and remain in as long as they show signs of progress. In this way the orchestra is enabled to maintain a constant and sufficient instrumentation. The orchestra is required to play for chapel exercises, teachers ' association meetings and all High School functions, and for this and the regular weekly rehearsal, pupils receive five-tenths credit, and five-tenths additional credit is given to members who are also mem- bers of the Richmond Symphony ( )rchestra.

At the organization no constitution was drawn up, but the fol- lowing officers, to be selected at the meeting of each semester, were decided upon — president, vice-president, .secretary, and ser- geant-at-arms. The meetings are held everv ' ednesda ' at high- noon in room fifty-four. .- t the beginning of each term two members of the club are chosen as ca])tajis and these choose sides. These sides arrange for the program for each meeting, alternately. Our programs are always interesting: original stories are read by their authors: splen- did recitations and well chosen readings are given and plenty of good nuisic, both vocal and instrumental, is furnished. On April fifth, at Mr. Keff ' s suggestion, we had a spelling n-iatch, and much to our surprise, n-iany of us found that we could not spell the simjilest words. I-lowever, now that we have found it out, we are sure that we shall profit by our experience and do much better next time. So you see our club is helpful as well as entertaining, and we hope and expect to make it count for something in the school. Oni: Innidrcd and four The Meridian Cllb One hutidrrtl ami Hz ' c The Alumni Association THE Alumni Association of the Richmond High School was reorganized December 7, 1910. by a number of enthusiastic representatives of various classes. The following officers were elected : President — Paul Comstock, ' 91. Vice-President — Anna Bradbury, ' 96. Secretary — Electa Henley, ' 06. Treasurer — Will Reller, ' 04. The main purpose in reorganization was to make the Association permanent, and to further this effort, circular letters sent to all people who have graduated from this school since it was founded in 1871, to ask their co-operation, to tell them of the present officers, and their desire to welcome the 1911 graduates with a banquet. As the present organization is still in its infancy and a full busi- ness meeting will not be held until after the banquet in June, the efforts thus far have been principally in organization. However, the prospects for a good organization are very good and the leaders have high hopes for its success.

" One hundred and eleven The Employment and Information Bureau T MrlE Employment and Information Bvirean is an organization I of a number of students and one or more teachers in the Richmond High School to furnish information to the public about the students of the high school who desire work and to help such deserving students to find employment. Card records are kept of applications from students for work in order to enable the organ- ization to furnish quickly definite information for every inquiry from the jjublic. The Employment and Information ISureau is filling a long-felt want and is doing an important service toward helping young people of Richmond with limited means to get a liberal education. It has systematized the wants of the public and the wants of the high school. It acts as agent to both without compensation. Last year ' t placed within two weeks after commencement one-fourth of the Senior class who desired employment. From time to time this year the townspeople have had odd jobs which the bu ' reau has taken care of with one exception and that tlirough no fault of the bureau ' s. Whether it was a bit of typewriting, a garden to be spaded, a clerk- ship open, or what not, the bureau has helped where it has had the opportunity. In the early part of the school year a canvass was made of the students having work and desiring work. At that time sixty stu- dents had regular jobs. One was doing clerical work in an ofifice. Thirty-two were clerking in stores on Saturdays. Fourteen had daily paper routes. Thirteen were doing work too diverse for classi- fication. Seventy-eight others wanted work. Over three-fourths of this number specified clerking as the kind of work preferable. I ast year we said ; " Xow, the bureau hopes to be able to say to every one of these deserving students, ' You can find employment if you desire it. ' It will be able to do so with the co-operation of the public. It is important, therefore, that you keep the bureau in One hundred mind to help forward the cause of education among a class of boys and girls that universally ' make good ' . " A number of the seventy- eight have found work. About a third of the number do not need work for financial assistance, but would be better ofif with the work. To the rest the bureau has not been able to keep its word to the letter because of the third party, the public. And they are not to blame if the_ ' do not know of us. So please pass the word along. Whenever you have odd jobs, such as mowing lawns, taking care of furnaces, etc., which can be done b} ' students of the high school, call up the principal ' s office at the high school building. State the kind of work you want done, about how long it will take to do it, and how much vou are willing to pay for the service. With this information the bureau will be able to tell you whether or not your wants can be supplied. GEOMETRY UP-TO-DATE Theorem : If you love the girl, she loves you. 1.

He found that they had died from a voluntary assimilation of butter-scotch and niock-cherry p ' es. baked at Xorth Xinth and B Streets.

The lirst thing; to be I noticed on entering any of the doors, were large cards announcing the immediate vicinity of " Ha- ) des, " which the casual observer could " take in " for the sum of ten cents, cash in advance. In this peaceful spot, " Drippv, " with a large corps of other tormented souls, illustrated the work- ings of the underworld by pronouncing sentence on several prom- inent members of the school and facnltv for their misdeeds. This evidently accomplished much good, for a large percent, of the con- demned number have been attending church regularly since that night. The ' audeville, in charge of Mr. Thompson, was exceptionallv good, dancing, singing, tumbling and other acts of this nature being- put on. As one small boy put it, the ' audeville was " almost as .good as a regular show, " Mrs. Kolp deserves special credit for the man- ner in which she drilled the dancers. The " Rig Show, " which was held in the auditorium, attracted many visitors. The actors were hampered by lack of floor space. and the shoes the ' were compelled to wear in order to economize space, made life unendurable to them while on the stage, but every- thing went ott in fine shape, and Ir. Kelly and the cast which pre- sented " My Lord in I ivery " are deserving ' of much credit for the hard work they did in preparation of the play, and for the splendid way in which they presented it. The " animal " show on the first floor was very interesting. Every- body who visited the show expected to see onl " " make-believe " animals, but, to the credit of the management, be it said that there was one live dog among the " diwiiatis f ' crsoiiai-. " " Giraffes " and 8p One hundred and Ihirtccn " fleas " in a quartet song, entitled " There is No Rest for the Wicked, " worked the audience into a frenzy of terror, which was further in- creased by the appearance of a " bear. " However, the boys were too strong for the brute and the panic was cahned without the aid of the special police force. Nearly every one had his fortune told, and found that it corre- sponded admirably with all previous seances. The shooting gallery on the second floor was a remarkable suc- cess and only one accident was reported. It, however, was not as serious as was first thought ; Mr. Hill, who was tending the counter of the gallery, was malicious]}- shot at by a young lady, who missed him by the narrow margin of two minutes. The living pictures were excellent. Handkerchiefs were supplied free to Daughters of the Revolution, some of whom were very much affected when the likeness of their old college chum, lartha Wash- ington, stepped into view. The shadow pictures were also good. It was an open question for some time as to how the silhouettes were made, but it was later found out that a large light was used in the process. Another attraction was the museum, where the marvelous col- lection of the " renowned " scientist, John Thomas, was exposed to view. The proprietor and several assistants attracted much at- tention with their cowboy outfits and villainous looking weapons. Manager Torrence should be complimented on the wa} ' in which the whole aft ' air was managed. It far eclipsed the success of either of the previous Fall Festivals. The largest number of people which ever assembled in the school building was present, and the sum of two hundred and thirty dollars was realized, which went into the general school treasurw One hundred and fourteen °)5( °) K v ' o °)2 " iO °}s, ' (o ' vS ' vO °)Stfo °)s v5( ' Co )9, ' 0 °)2, ' Co JS Co v C v C v C " JSCo °)sCo vSCo " vSCo vS ' Co °)S ' Co JS ' C v ' C v ' ° v ' C° v v ' C v v v vS ' s ' v ' C v v ' C NOTES FROM THE MARION DEBATE Landlady — " Are you the ' Uncle Tom ' s Cabin ' troupe?

What a neck-breaking, (f life-endangcring feat was gone through with in , washing the school windows ! How the pupils, like ; nimble chamois leaping from crag to crag, leaped over the abysses in the stairs before they were finished ! How eyes and noses watered from the burning asphalt with which these abysses were being filled ! How the clamor and uproar poured into the recitation rooms and how glad everyone was when all this ended ! ' hy, you may ask, was this outcry, confusion, and bustle? Well, workmen, janitors, pupils and teachers were getting readv for Ded- ication Day. And, let me say, everything was ready for the six- teenth of December, the day for the The pupils ' program was held in the afternoon and the evening was reserved for their elders. The invocation was given b - the Rev. H. R. Smith. Remarks were made by Superintendent T. A. Mott. Principal I. E. Nefif, Assistant Principal J. F. Thompson, Stanley Lindstrom, Senior Class President, and Mr. Gustave Hoelscher, ' 05, representing the Alumni Association. The address of the afternoon was given by President R. L. Kellv, of Earlham, who spoke of the close affiliation of Earlham College and this High School and of the growing tendency of all other colleges and high schools to become more closelv united. But the crowning feature of the afternoon was the singing of the school song by the student body, and what a grand, inspiring chorus it was! THE EA ' EXIXG PROGRAM In the evening the invocation was given by Rev. E. G. Howard. and Dr. S. R. I yons offered the dedication prayer. Remarks were made by Supt. T. A. Mott, and Supt. J. X. Study of Fort Wayne. Indiana, formerly Superintendent of Richmond schools: INIr. Wilfred Jessup, ' 94, gave a short talk in behalf of the .Alumni Association : and Stephen S. Strattan, Jr.. gave a few statistics concerning the cost of material and labor of the building. Dr. F. J. McConnell made the address of the evening and it was full of spice and hiimor as his name would imply. After this Mrs. Emma Hasty, in behalf of the W. R. C, presented a large silk American flag to the school, which was accepted by Principal I. E. X ' efl . To add to the patriotism of the occasion, the orchestra played an appropriate selection and made every one feel patriotic and full of civic pride. During the evening the entire building was open to inspection and classes were held in the Gymnasium, Bench Room. Forging. Sewing and Cooking rooms, and Science laboratories, where people got something to eat or were hit by flying sparks, flying bits of wood, flying needles or by flying thoughts in favor of the new High School building. One hundred and sixteen ' ,AR people of the Richmonfl High School: It ;ives me great pleasure to look into voiir bright DMK and shining faces this morning " ( every girl rnbs heir nose with a ?). " You are a source ' . I if inspiration to me and 1 should like to change my speech to one more suited to the occasion. lUit fearful of my own and your comfort. I shall keep fast hold on mv old oration. The |jcople of this High School are to be complimented on having such a splendid orchestra. . s I sat on the platform I could feel my heart swell with the melody — although I know nothing about music. .A good lesson can be drawn from the orchestra be- cause in it there would be absolute discord unless each plaver sub- mitted himself to the will of the director just as all of you must submit your wills to that of your Principal. You are also to be complimented on having such a splendid and well equipped building. You should- feel proud to stud)- in such a magnificent structure with its beautiful Act Gallery and Cooking Department. And now I am reminded of a little joke . " Most any stale, time-worn, frayed-at-the-edges joke will apply here, for this, dear reader, is a formula for ou to follow when ou arise to address the High School at chapel time. This introduction has been used for manv vears and any departure from this aged precedent would be greeted with such hoots and jeers as are hurled at some cruel and inconsiderate icono- clast. So mark this in your day-book with red ink and stow it awav for future reference. One of the first speakers of this year was the Rev. Mr. Mahv. who mixed some high school slang with his talk, much to the delight of us all. Indeed, he was so delightful that he was urged to come a second time with his little Welsh companion. Mr. Morgan, who sang a few ' elsh folksongs for us. Our next speaker was ' illiam Dudley Foulke, who spoke on " Conservation of Municipal Resources. " The high school people highly appreciated the honor bestowed on them b Mr. Foulke when he gave this address, and enjoyeil it verv much. One hundred and seventeen !Mrs. Johnston, President of the Richmond Art Association, spoke to lis one morning on Art. This talk was of great benefit to the pupils because of the Art Exhibit which was then going on, where many went after the lecture to hear some of Mrs. Johnston ' s ideas of the pictures. The students do not half appreciate their JMr. Earhart, who in music hour talks on civilization and why people should obey certain customs and not live like savages. His music creates a background for his abstract talks and the) ' in turn lend an atmosphere to his music, so that the combination clings like " stick tights. " His talk in chapel was of this same character — a mixture of morals and music. The delightful " Music Wednesdays " will long be remembered bv the students and others who have the pleasure of hearing them. At a former stage of the game most of us were under the super- vision of Mr. Heironimus, and to make us feel that the clock had turned back a few turns, he came to talk to us and gave us a delight- ful talk on " The Game ; " Dr. Bond, in his talk on " The jNIairathon of Life, " warned us against intemperance of any kind, showing how it affected the body and as a result, the mind. " A friend in need is a friend indeed, " can well be said of Dr. Lyons, who " lives in a house across the street " " and is a friend to man. " We can ' t forget his charming talk on " Wit and Humor. " To illustrate the diffeirence, he told jokes which were not in the least degree time-worn or frayed-at-the-edges and over which we laughed because we wanted to and not merely for politeness. A favorite trick of his is to come at chapel time, sit on the platform with Mr. Xet¥, poke that worthy gentleman in the ribs and grin sympathet- ically on our " bright and shining faces. " Another friend is Mr. Weed, who is unlike Dr. Lyons in that he always resorts to the back of chapel or under one of the balconies when he wishes to make an announcement. The only reason for this is modesty. At another time INIrs. Bernhardt instructed us as to how to find a book at the public library, giving us some very useful information ; Miss Ida Faye Smith, of Decatur, delighted us with her reading of Kenilworth; Rev. Howard ' s and Rev. Pennington ' s lectures were full of comforting thoughts and have been a source of consolation to those who frequently feel so in need of comfort at the end of each six weeks ; Dr. Lindley ' s talk on " The Stuff of Dreams " was in- tensely interesting; Mr. Jordan, in his lecture on " Old Age " showed us many of our deficiencies of which we were unavvaire; Prof. John Bobbett, of Chicago L ' niversity, gave an interesting talk on the Uni- ' versity and the advantages it offers. Dr. Dennis ' lecture on " Aeroplanes " was of especial importance to the present generation, as we all expect to fly either here or in the hereafter. It is a sort of Santa Claus proposition — be good, work hard, and -ou shall fly. Directly in line with this idea of flying comes Prof. Chase ' s lecture on " Travel, " although he talked on the ease of traveling now on land and sea — not over them. Rev. Cates gave a lecture on " Truth " ; Mr. Sharon E. Jones talked on " The Foundations of Business Success " ; while we remem- ber with pride the excellent speeches made by the Senior Class President, Stanley Lindstrom, and the Junior Class President, Edwin Flook, when we welcomed the " Garfield Seniors " to our midst in February. We feel that we have been very fortunate this year in securing such splendid talent for our exercises, and we are very grateful to all the students and outsiders who have plaj ed for us and whiled away our recitation periods with their gentle words or music, as we shall always be grateful to those who have come too late for mention in the " Hall of Fame. " Mr. Bronson is a regular little Kraftsman. One hundred and eighteen The Auditorium A Letter from a School Girl Dearest Xixxette: I ' ve been perfectly wild to get to this letter and, having ' relieved mv overworked mind of Chancer and a few other such inconsiderate wretches, I will proceed to tell you of our mad Hallowe ' en lark. In the afternoon preceding the grand night everyone was buzzing around, planning harmless little jollifications in their rooms. We six, the twins, Janice, Corinna. and ISee and I were in our room trying to think up something novel. I was standing by the window looking across at the " House on the Hill, " which I have described to von before as being that perfectly grand old mansion, which is owned by a queer old man who lives abroad and keeps the house shut up. We have heard lately that he has a grandson, a college fellow, and we girls are simpl - wild about the latter. Wish he would come down here ! Imagine having a good-looking college fellow right across the road from this dull old " Xnnnery. " But as I started to say, I was looking across at the " House on the Hill " when I had a brilliant idea. " Girls! " I exclaimed, " Let ' s have a party at the " House on the Hill. " Corinna looked scorn unutterable, while Janice exclaimed, " Good- ness, Betty! We ' d be found out and sent packing tomorrow ! " But the indisputable twins — bless them — came to the rescue and we finally won over the shrinking ones and laid our plot. It was just eight o ' clock when we six tiptoed, giggling, along the hall to the fire escape and stumbled down. One hniidrt There was no moon and the grounds were conveniently dark as we scuttled across the road and up the driveway of the forbidden grounds. As we were hurrying along Bee vowed that she saw a streak of light at an upper window as though a blind had been lifted and dropped again. We, however, attributed this to her imagination and went on, around the house to the cellar trap-door, where we intended to get in. I had the candle so they made me go first and a dingier, darker old cellar I never saw. Ugh — h — h — h ! we had shivers and thrills enough in going through that old place and up the creaky stairs to the kitchen to last us until we ' re gray-haired and ninety. We filed solemnly through the big hall into the library, where we lit the gas grate and proceeded to enjoy ourselves. We were sitting comfortably around the fire, toasting marsh- mallows, stirring fudge and telling horrible ghost stories, when chancing- to look around, I could have sworn I saw a — well, some- thing shadowy flash b)- the stairway. The girls were inclined to credit this to my imagination as we had the light to Bee ' s, but Peggy Conway objected. " Why, " she said, " what do you think I came over here for? Do vou think I put my immortal soul in peril merely to tamelv eat marsh- mallows and fudge? Xo, indeed! If I don ' t stir up the ghost of some ancient ancestor of this house before I leave, I ' ll never look at it again. But speaking of fudge, this is ready to pour out. Come with me, Betty, and we ' ll put it in the kitchen window to cool. " ■d and tzveiity About fifteen minutes after we had returned to the hbrary. Peggy jumped up. and went back to the kitchen to see if the concoction was cold. The next minute she came flying back with the astound- ing news that the fudge was gone. " Absohitely disapjaeared from the face of the earth. Honest truly, black and bluely, there isn ' t a sign of it anywhere. It couldn ' t have fallen from the window, for it ' s screened. I move we imme- diately institute a search for the culprit ghost. " Well, we very promptly stampeded, and were ready to fly to the protective arms of the " Nunnery " without further parley, but the scornful hoofs and jeers of the twins finally roused our shrinking spirits, and so they, each armed with an old broom, with Janice and Corinna each glorying " in the possession of a stew-pan, Cee with a poker and I with the candle, crept shuddering up the back stair. Horrors ! I never felt so much like taking to my heels, as when we reached that big. shadowy old hall upstairs. Irrepressible Peggy was just suggesting trying some of the doors, when presto! whift ' ! out went my candle, most unceremoniously, and something soft and rustling brushed past us. Down went my candle to the floor, and we fell into each other ' s arms, shrieking; all but Peggy, who groped around after the candle, and just as she struck a match and lit it, we very plainly saw a horrible white something flutter around a turn in the hall. Well, I have been frightened in mv short life, but never in all my checkered career have I been so utterh ' scared as at that moment. Every hair on m}- head stood on tipend and I was perfectly sure it was getting gray. Peggy was about as badly scared as we, but she had more spunk. She turned on us fiercely. " Cowards! " she said, scornfuUv, " I ' m going to find out what that is. You know it isn ' t a ghost — there aren ' t any. I should think you ' d be ashamed to let me go by mvself. " We were .going to let her do it though, I tell -on, but just then a door happened to creak behind us, and then ensued a panic. ' e flew, yes, fairly flew down the hall, past the very curve around which our ghost had disappeared, and there at the end of the hall. One hundred shining through the door transom was a light, a good substantial electric light. We didn ' t question — such was far from our thoughts, but made such an assault upon that poor, unsuspecting door, that it gave way without dispute, and in we tumbled, all six of us, in an ignominous heap upon the floor. . burst of laughter greeted us, and there, perched airily upon a table, we saw our ghost, alias the " traveling man, " who, as I told you in my last letter, had so un- ceremoniously bumped into Miss Courson and her multitude of packages one da ' last week in the post-office : while near him, with a piece of fudge in each hand, was none other than my graceless twin. Hob ! Uf course, we all laughed at the turn affairs had taken, and ex- planations began on both sides. It happened that something had occurred at Bob ' s college, so that they were having a two-week ' s vacation, and " The Ghost, " who turned out to be the longed-for grandson of the owner of the house and no " traveling man " at all, had decided to come down to the country and spend part of the vacation at the " House on the Hill. " He and Bob had come on the evening train, while si.x other fellows, they said, were to come on the night train. We didn ' t have much ditificulty in believing this last statement, for at that instant the hilarious strains of " Xora Alalone " broke on the air, and we heard an automobile come crunch- ing up the driveway. Xo doubt the new arrivals, who were just climbing out of the machine as we, escorted b_ ' Bobbie and the Ghost, filed across the lawn, were highly astonished at the sight, but " The Ghost " called out to them to make themselves at home, which they evidently did judging from the sounds that issued from the house as we went down the driveway. Wt had reached the gate, when Bob gave a soft whistle. " Look across the way, girls. " he said ; " you ' re going to have a hard time getting in over there. The whole school seems to have tunied out to receive you. " Horrors ! it was perfectly true, for apparently every window and and Izecnty-oite fire escape was swarming with girls, who were evidently curious as to the unusual sounds issuing from the " House on the Hill. " We nearly collapsed in our dismay, but again it was the twins to the rescue. " Hurry ! " urged they, " we ' ll slip through the hedge and join the girls on the fire escape: no one will be the wiser. " We did. but just as we joined them we heard Miss Smithson ' s horrified voice. " Young ladies, I am very much astonished at your being out of your rooms at such an hour. The commotion across the way cannot possibly interest you in the least. Go to your rooms immediately and report to me tomorrow. " We hurried in and as the last one stepped from the fire escape we heard her window bang, and soon the prodigals were sleeping peacefully (except that I had a dreadful dream — about a ghost with a suit-case in one hand and a plate of fudge in the other, chasing me around the school grounds ) . Oh, there goes the recitation bell, so I have just time to sign my name. In haste, Betty L.arue. P. S. — Bob and " The Ghost " called today, and, of course, Miss Smithson was charmed to meet Bettina Larue ' s brother, and " The Ghost " proved so charming that Miss Courson forgot about the collision and fell so absolutely a victim to his wiles, that she sug- gested that the party at the " House on the Hill " be asked over to dinner tomorrow night, which invitation was enthusiastically ac- cepted, and as a consequence every one is flying around, asking each other what they should wear in honor of the wonderful occasion. I think I shall wear my ravishing new lemon-yellow organdie, wouldn ' t you? B. L. Esther Be. trice Beck, ' 11. One hundred and tiventy-two ();;t ' huiiiirci.i ami tzi-ciifv-thrcc " The Rivals " A great deal of interest has been shown this last year in Dramat- ics, especially since the great success of the nineteen hundred ten Senior play, " The Rivals. " This was presented in the chapel of the old High School during commencement week, under the excellent direction of Miss Jessica Pond, of Ft. Wayne. The play was produced admirably, was staged well, and was costumed very prettil}-.

KIT-KAT PLAY During the fall semester the Kit-Kat Club, a literary society, gave a little play called " The Court- ship Under Difficulties. " The cast included three girls — m.vrjorie curme. Marian Stevenson. Kathryn Ensmixger. This was very cle -erly presented and caused much merriment. The Kit-Kat Club is a growing organization, both in size and interest as well as in ability of its members. This is the second time it had tried anything of the sort and its success so far is such that much is expected of it in the future. One liundrcd and Izccnty-fonr " MY LORD IX LI ' ERY " The last play that has been given was " My Lord in Livery, " a very successful afifair; it was the " Big- Show " of the " Winter Fes- tival " of nineteen hundred and eleven and was given under the di- rection of Mr. Kellv. The cast, which was a very competent one. was : Sybil, daughter of Lord Amberly Eleonor.

On !May 19 a very enjoyable entertainment was given by the Pedestrian Club and College Club. The first part of the program consisted of a play by the Pedestrian Club, entitled " Captain Toe. " This was a college play in two acts, a very clever little affair and well presented. The cast was as follows : Josephine Scott ( Captain Joe ) Meta Pfafflin Mildred Seinn, her room-mate Bertha Walterjian Kate Mnstin Emily Fletcher Pat Dickenson Celina Gehr Sne Carpenter Cornelia Shaw Jtme Pavell. the little Freshman Wanda Johnson Team Girls; Zelma Lynn. Marian Stevenson. Edna von Pein, Ruth Kohlstedt. Ruby Bulach. Emerald Kemper. Edith Schnelle. The next feature was the singing of college songs bv the chorus, followed by a playlet, entitled " Wanted — A Confidential Clerk. " This was very cleverly presented by the College Club boys, the cast being as follows : One liKiidri-d " Mv Lord in Livery " Jonathan Dobbs Roland Xusb.yum John McCormick John Longstreth Horatio Lustington Fred Girtv Charles Valentine Ed Flook Dick Sharp Howard Messick Harry Dalton Wallace Gifford After this a spread was given in the " Gym. " which proved to be one of the most enjoyable features of the evening, and the two or- ganizations are to be highly complimented upon their success in the whole affair. We are now preparing for the Senior pla ' which will be given in June, and is under the direction of Mrs. Helen Johnson P.ailev. of Richmond. The class members are very enthusiastic over the enterprise and a great success is expected. and liven ty-fivc To Our Advertisers :.-.,r,T.% V,VCTm i f,J i lA■ i■.,h■ ' E wish here to express our gratitude to the i business men of Richmond, for the liberal way in which they have advertised in this book.
