was with us only the last two years, and even that was broken by a semester's
illness. Kenneth's marcel was the envy (if all the girls. He was a good student
and thoroughly dependable in every task. "'Sam" was our class sheik, with his
spats and his "cooky-duster." During his senior year he was quite the man
about town with an apartment and car of his own. Ernest was outstanding in
almost every activity. Music was his major interest, although he found time for
sports too. Charles was such a quiet chap we did not begin to realize his possi-
bilities until he was almost through school. In spite of it being his first year on
the football team he held down an important berth all season.

William's main passion in sports was baseball, he being an excellent catcher.
During" his senior year aviation captured his heart, and he gained a pilot's license
late in the fall. In addition to being a good student, Jean was interested in all
phases of physical education — dancing, floor work, sports. She was a steady
forward in girls' basketball. Doris' charming manner won for her many friends.
She was in both the Junior and Senior plays. Myrtle's main interest lay in the
commercial department. She was a good typist and should make a good office
secretary some of these days.

ruce's special talent runs along the line of art, which keeps him in demand
for posters, covers, and the like. He is a good student. Norman came
to us from Massachusetts and still keeps his eastern accent. His excellent
work in liasketball won him the honorary captaincy, and he is now the
chief pitcher for the baseball team. Edward Coltrin has been everything from
first-aid doctor at games to president of the Athletic Association. He has been
general handy man in so many ways that his place will lie hard to fill.
Howard has been out for football ever since he was a Freshman, and is also
our champion pole-vaulter. All of his twelve years' schooling has been at Euclid.

cians, having played the cornet in hoth band and orchestra. He is always interested
in things along a mechanical line. Still another member of band and orchestra
is Alfred, who came to us last year. Science is his strong point. We expect to
hear some day of his having become a prominent engineer.
Treva is the only member of the June class who has taken a strictly business
course. She also has gone straight through Euclid from the first grade on.

over the days we wonder how we ever got so much done.
First, there were five of us on the Buzzer Staff: Norman Bradley,
editor-in-chief; Marjorie Kovarik, news editor; Ruth Phypers, literary; Jane

Then five boys made varsity football and two were regular substitutes; two
boys and four girls were on basketball varsity.
Six were chosen to carry leading parts in the operetta, "Pickles" — Ruth

wo years have made seasoned sailors cut of the members of the Class of
1933 — sailors who perhaps lock with eyes of rcorn upon the landlubbers
who have scarcely trained their sealers vet.
This, our second year, has been a pleasant one. The first event of
the year, following election of officer., was a party given by our newly-elected
president, Thomas Kline, at his home. Next came our assembly play "Bargain
Day" with its many sobs and much wailing on the part of the actors, presented
amid much laughter on the part of the audience. "The Snowball" was the dance
given by the class to all the high school. Snowmen and snow-dripped spruce
boughs formed the decorations, and noisy toys supplemented the orchestra. Several
girls were on the basketball team, the boys entered all the sports, and one of the
girls was in the cast of "Pickles."
Although several of our group from last year did not enroll last fall, we
have had very few withdrawals during the year, so unless fatalities occur between
now and June, we'll have a jolly hand of sailors all ready for another voyage
on the old ship.

'Whither, splendid ship, thy white sails crowding?"
, the sailor's life is the life for me" is the opinion already held by every
freshman lad and lassie after one brief year on the scholastic sea.
We were as green as any other land-lubbers, we suppose, but after
we had come late to several classes and interpreted our schedules every
way but the right way. we lowered ourselves enough to a k advice from the upper-
The boys were in due time initiated and made quite a spectacle, rushing along
the halls with one shoe oil and one shoe on, and oftentimes even minus a belt.
We are, however, coming along famously under the watchful eye of Miss
Forbes and the efficient work of our officers. We have already proved that we
possess a little dramatic talent by twice presenting "Uncle Dick's Secret;" some
of us must possess that art of salesmanship and of cooking for we made quite a
large profit on our candy-booth at the carnival; and both the boys and the girls

National Honor Society
i lie National Honor Society requires four main qualities in its members.
These four qualities are leadership, character, service and scholarship.
Leadership means taking the lead in actixitie. and affairs of the school,
■carrying through to a Micce sfnl conclusion. Character means having
those characteristics that make a real man or woman. Service means being de-
pendable and willing to assume responsibility, hast but not least is scholarship,
which means being in the upper third of the class.
Since its organization in our school in 1 ( '24, twenty students have been
chosen as members. They are :

From all directions have come only words of praise for its members

director of music. Especial credit should be given also to Miss Houston
and Miss Chandler, whose steady interest and excellent talent have been invaluable.

that there will he a vacant spot next year. Their place will be taken, however,

"^ here are now eighteen regular members in the band, one of the most
colorful organizations in the school. Five members are new this year:
Margaret Pennington, Robert Hammel, Bruce McCandless, Clifford Miller
and Katherine Lebar.
Fall and spring are the times when the band is most useful. All the school
songs are now a part of the band's repertoire, and the football games are twice as
interesting with music to aid the cheering.
The chief spring event is the appearance of the combined bands on Decoration

and turned out a team which scored more points than its opponents. Sev-
eral men who held down permanent berths throughout the season were playing
their hrst year of football, and proved to he real finds.
The outlook for next year is bright. In spite of the loss of four men,
Captain Caito, Clasen, Erickson, Kovarik. Kulvvin, good material is left and the
freshman team showed up well. Jack Shea is the 1930 Captain.

ach Rader' s combination was just reaching its stride when Caito, Kulwin
and Kovarik finished their school careers. The floor-captain system was-
gjjjp^fj tried out this year, a different man being chosen for each game. At the
end of the season Norman Carter, a fine player all season, was the
unanimous choice for honorary captain.
The second team had a good season and prospects for next year are bright.

n spite of a rather poor showing the girls' basketball season may be
considered a good one. Steady interest maintained to the end, and an
excellent spirit of optimism and good sportsmanship prevailed. Not a
little of this fine spirit was due to the popular little captain and splendid
player, "Posy" Fouts and to Miss Johnson, who proved to have every quality of
an ideal coach. Mary Clare Rogers made a good manager.
The sunnv spot of the year was the victory over River, who have trampled
us so often. Ruth Phypers was the unanimous choice for next year's captain.

small school like Euclid does well to maintain both track and baseball.
Yet both flourish, although more time is needed for track practice. Jack
Shea and Howard Clasen were the outstanding stars last spring. Jack
won second place in both the century and the two-twenty at the Shaker
meet, and third in the two-twenty at S. Lakewood. Howard placed second in the
pole-vault at Shaker, and first at Lakewood with a record of 10 feet 6 inches. The
outlook for 1930 is good, as both of these men will return.

Oiur Flower Garden
It is a true but little known fact that Euclid Central has a flower garden in
which many varieties of flowers bloom all the year round.
The California Poppy (Alfred Pray) is easily recognized. Bachelor Buttons
(Mr. Sharrock, Mr. Turnbull, Mr. Swackhamer) are always to be seen, and
fragrant Sweet William (Bill Petti) sweetens its corner of the garden.
Florists all over the country marvel at the way so many kinds of flowers bloom
in the same garden all the year through. Modest Violets (Betty Knuth, Margaret )
in a plot next to a very strange specimen, the Lazy Daisy (Lawrence Wadsworth ) .
Then there are the hardy plants of Bouncing Bet (Mary Alice Johns) and the
Dandelion (Norman Bradley) which grow so fast they almost crowd the Pansies
(Ruth Phypers, Anna Vinciquerra, Wanda Lewandoski ) . The Black-eyed Susans
(Betty Wedler, Betty and Annie Lebar) are a contrast to their neighbors, the
Golden Glow (Marilla Harmon, Jane Plageman). Bordering the paths are little
Forget-Me-Nots (Doris and Ethel Simmons). In former years Bridal Wreath
has bloomed beautifully, but this year it doe n't have a bud.
Clumps of Babies Breath ( Helene Davis, June Bradley) surround the stiff
Everlastings (Bill Martens, Ed Coltrin). Nearby Johnny-Jump-Up (Itchy Caito )
and the Dairies (Ruth Walton. Marjorie Kovarik ) help to make the garden more
beautiful. Daffodils (Doris Black. Betty Clulee, Royden Wanstall) brighten things
up while the Hollyhocks ( Ruth Dans, Elizabeth Scott) form a background for all.

How It Happened
Dozen in Sleepy Valley in front of A Cottage For Sale I saw True Blue Lou
looking Blue As Night so I asked her what was wrong.
"I'm Reminisciri ." she said. "] broke up with That Man from the South.
I'm Nobody's Sweetheart Now and Am I Blue? Yesterday 1 heard he married
Honeysuckle Rose so I sent my Congratulations, and I'll keep Painting the Clouds
"Keep Your Sunny Side l r p," I said, "and Someday the Real Thin// Will
Come Along; then you'll start Makiri Whoopee."
And when I suggested that we go see The Love Parade, she said, "I May Be
Wrong But I Think You're Wonderful and from now on I'm Followin' You."

YE SCHOOLE GOSSIPE
The other day
As I was walking
Down the hall
I saw a couple
They had no eyes
for you or me,
lint looked as if
they loved to live
and lived to love.
And I went out
and sniffed the air,
and it was fine.
And then I knew
It must lie spring.
I thank you.
