% * JBUCLilO HIGH -SCHOOL . EUCLID-SHORE RADIOGRAM EUCIjUO "^^J^yo^,? HIGH -SCHOOL '22 PUBLISHED BY SENIOR CLASS of EUCLID VILLAGE HIGH SCHOOLS Debiration In grateful recognition of his conscientious service in the interests of Shore and Euclid-Central High Schools, we, the class of Nineteen-Twenty-Two, respectfully dedicate this volume to Superintendent Wilbert A. Franks Foreword THE past year has been one of growth and achieve- ment for the Euclid Village High School. In the preparation of this little volume the combined Senior Classes of both divisions, for the first time in the history of the schools, have united their literary and artistic efforts. The student body and faculty of the entire organ- ization has given us its loyal and enthusiastic support. The staff trusts that the following pages may indicate some- thing of the life and activities at our two high schools- Euclid and Shore — and may strengthen still further the bonds of friendship existing between them. Appreciation is hereby extended to all who con- tributed in any manner to the annual. The assistance of associates, faculty advisors, patrons and advertisers has made possible our initial combination offering and has en- couraged us throughout the undertaking. History of Euclid Today EUCLID HIGH SCHOOL has been steadily growing. From occupying a few rooms upstairs in our building together with the grades it has come to occupy all of the upper floor. There were few teachers at first. Now there is a teacher for each department: English, History, Language, Mathe- matics, Science, Domestic Science and Manual Training besides a teacher for subjects that are not included in these lists, and Music and Art supervisors. This indicates very clearly that the enrollment has increased. It is now four times what it was in 1918. This year there are fourteen Seniors, but there was only one four years ago. This increase has been due partly to certain conditions in other schools, partly to increase in population, but also the fact that Euclid High is able to attract and keep students. Our school is small enough for attention to individuals and large enough to support many activities. Euclid is exceptionally well equipped. Our gymnasium, with running track, locker-rooms and shower-baths, surpasses those of most city schools. All our plays used to be given under difficulties in the Town Hall; now we have as beautiful an auditorium as can be found in any school in the country. It is not only beautiful but well equipped in every detail. The laboratory has been recently refurnished and improved, and the library has been completely catalogued and established in one of the upstairs rooms. The Manual Training Department has been given more room by giving to it almost all of the old gymnasium, where many useful and beautiful things are made. The Domestic Science Department has a large kitchen and also sewing rooms in the house recently bought for the schools. This department is of real service in serving lunches for teachers and pupils. History of Shore High School DURING the spring and summer ot nineteen hundred and thirteen, there arose the foundation of a new school building. By late summer the edifice was completed and crowds of people dwelling in Euclid Village went to view it, inside and out, on the night of its opening. It was de- clared by one and all to be a beautiful and practical expression of modern architecture. "Shore" was decided upon as the most appropriate name and was carved over the entrance where you will find it today. The building, when first constructed, consisted of four class rooms, a gym- nasium and basement space, the latter being used for manual training and domestic science classes as well as for lavoratories and furnace rooms. The four class rooms seemed amply large lor all the students that attended then. The fifth and sixth grades were in one room, the seventh and eighth in another, while all the high school was in a third room, and the fourth was used for a laboratory. The gymnasium was a wing all by itself on the south side of the school. Immense beams ran across the ceiling and these played a unique part in the basket ball games. In 1918 an addition of several rooms was made to the original building to care for the increased enrollment. The last addition consisting of six class-rooms, library and combination gymnasium and auditorium was ready for occupancy last year. The gvm is the popular rendezvous for the whole Shore Community for neighborhood gather- ings as well as for school affairs. The gym floor is one of the best in northern Ohio. Excellent manual training and domestic arts departments are maintained. With the increased enrollment of the last two years it is possible to enlarge the curriculum so that a wider choice may be offered. T Euclid High Schools of Yesterday HE HIGH SCHOOLS of Euclid had their beginning in the year of 1893 in the upper room of a two story brick building on the north side of the street known as School Street. Euclid was not a village at that time but was called Euclid Township. The pupils of the first school came from every direction, and many had to walk from three to lour miles or farther to school. South Euclid, Clarabell and Nottingham sent their pupils to Euclid at that time. The teaching force con- sisted of one member, Mr. Sigler, and a three year course was given. In May, 1897, the first class consisting of six pupils was graduated. At this time each pupil was required to deliver a commencement oration. In 1897 our faculty was increased to two members; the Superintendent, Prof. E. L. Abbey and Mr. A. H. Mavis. Two courses of study were offered, the English and Business course com- bined, and the Latin course. Athletic sports were few. The boys and girls played football and baseball in season; while croquet offered thrills in the spring. Since we had no athletic field the grounds surrounding the village Town Hall served in that capacity As to entertainments —our efforts were centered upon a yearly entertain- ment, given in midwinter. One proved so successful that we gave it both in Euclid and Nottingham. Some may wonder at the excellency of the musical productions of Euclid High Schools today, but when one thinks that music has been part of the course of study since 1899 and B. Watson Burgess of East Cleveland first introduced it — one no longer wonders. In 1900 the High School was moved into a new building just east of where it had been housed. We were proud to enter our new building and begin work there with what we believed every equipment for a very efficient High School. One of the sources of much interest was a chemistry laboratory. In the year 1913 the present high schools were completed, one at Shore for the north and one at Euclid for the south side of the Village. Additions have been added to these buildings giving us two of the finest gymnasiums in the country and a splendid auditorium. With the rapid growth of our village and its schools we see a glorious future for the little school which had its beginning in such humble quarters in the year of 1893. MRS. J. B.

An aeroplane was careening overhead. There seemed to he something wrong with it. Suddenly the engine stopped with an explosive whirr-r-r. It sailed to earth like a great eagle landing safely in a large field. The aviator climhed out and surveyed the landscape. In the distance an aerial was swaying gently in the hreeze. "Well, of all things, if this isn't an up-to-date town. Even a radio station. I must send a wireless to my wife to tell her of my forced delay. On entering the station the aviator stood spell- bound. The operator in turn stared back at him. Finally* the aviator, his face wreathed in a familiar jovial smile, exclaimed: "If this isn't enough to knock a man over. So you're running a radio station, are you, George? You have enough paraphernalia around here. Ever succeeded in talking to Mars yet?" No, not yet, but I haven't given up trying. Hut where did you drop from, Harry? I thought you had completely forgotten old Euclid." "You don't mean to say that this enormous city I have just been flying over is Euclid?" "Certainly it is. Can't you see the Martin- Barriss smoke stack from here? You see old Euclid is no longer a village but a city of 400,000 people and still growing rapidly. But let's not stand here all day. Come, I'll take you sight- seeing and give you a few more surprises." "I'm ready I'll survive." for anything after this one. Hope '^CJ \}-i >;^ As they started out, Harry said, "Your streets certainly are well kept but for that matter the general aspect of the city is thriving. By the way, who's your mayor?" "My, but you're green. Haven't you heard that Wilhelmina Daus has been elected mayor of Euclid? Why, she is the best mayor a city could have. Ask anyone if you don't believe me." "I might have thought as much." Passing up Euclid Avenue George designated a ten story department store, saying, "Remember Ferguson, our business manager for the Annual? Well he liked being in business so well that now he is the president of that large concern. But wait till you see the new version of the old Town Hall." It certainly was a new version, as Harry dis- covered later, when they stood in front of an imposing building with a sign over it "The New City Hall." 17 Prophetic Pictures (Cont.) CeL "Come on in and listen to the trial that is going on." said George. From the doorway Harry thought he could discern a familiar figure, speaking heatedly, as much with his long arms as with his voice. "Am I seeing things or is that really Big Boy?" exclaimed Harry. "It's Big Boy all right, and he is no longer con- tent to write his name just plain Harold Daniels hut puts 'LLD' after it." A silence fell over the room through which emerged the well modulated tones of the judge and, to his amazement, they were feminine. By way of explanation George added, "and the judge who is pronouncing the sentence is none other than Celia Camine." "Surprises is right," was all Harry could say. "Yes, but you haven't had half of them. Let's get something to eat before we explore further." T, H! l e,.»f' r. E / wmJJ On the way to the hotel they were accosted by newsboys yelling "Get your Euclid Observer." "None better than the Euclid Observer." For curiosity's sake Harry bought one wondering if it was like it used to be. Glancing through and thinking what a good paper it was he found to his amazement that it was edited by Evans Lewis. "Well, if it isn't another of my classmates." By this time they had arrived in front of a magnificent building, the twinkling red and green electric lights spelled "Sulzer's Hotel". Harry simply stood there and stared. "Hurry up, get a move on you, Harry." "Sure, Em coming," said Harry absently yet standing in the same place. But by degrees he recovered his faculties. Harrv evidently relished Bill's table d'hote for he said "Some class to Bill's 'bill of fare' and you know that chicken and apple pie went right to the spot." "I agree with you, (if I never agreed before) But no wonder, Gladys Wadsworth is a very com- petent dietitian; with the help of the produce from Lawrence Trebisky's farm, she can perform miracles in the culinary art." "So Farmer has taken up farming?" j„,,jj. »Sji, 18 Prophetic Pictures (Cont.) "Oh, yes, he owns a 200 acre farm on the out- skirts of the city and with his knowledge of scientific farming there are few farms that can compete with his." Going out into the lohby they perceived a man standing beside a magazine rack. He was reading a late issue of the "American" chuckling while he read. "Well, Bill, let us in on the joke," George called to him. Bill looked up to behold Harry and George coming toward him. "Hello, Bill, how's the world treating you?" "Pretty fair," he replied shaking hands de- lightedly with Harry. 'Pretty fair'! I should say so," said George, "Why he owns our biggest movie theater as well as this hotel." "Say," broke in Bill to change the subject, "I've just been reading your latest story, 'Cunning, not Cute'. It's a ripper. Who ever dreamt that you'd be a famous humorist?" "Well you see I just had to use my sense of humor in some way and much as I detest to write it was the only thing to do." At this juncture two young ladies entered. One was petite and auburn-haired, the other had dark hair and curling lashes. "Step this way and see whom we have with us." Bill shouted to them. "Of all people," they ejaculated simultaneously, "if it isn't Harry." "Why hello there, Helen and Mabel," said Harry, equally surprised. "How long have you been here, Harrv? Seen old E. H. S. yet?" asked Helen. "I just came today, but I've been learning fast, ask George if I haven't, but I haven't gotten as far as that. Tell me about it." "You wouldn't be apt to recognize it anymore. It has increased over five times it's former size and where they had but six teachers they now have forty. At present I am teaching Art there." "So you're an artist. I'll bet you're a good one, too." "I'll say she is." Ibis time it was Mabel who spoke, "Won't you people come to the concert tomorrow night. Our company is giving it and I am to assist the orchestra by making the ivories stutter. 19 Prophetic Pictures (Cont.) "Listen to her, would you," said William, "do you know, Harry, she is considered one of the most talented pianists of the day." "Don't make me laugh," said Mabel with her characteristic flippancy, "and don't forget the concert. I'll have the tickets for you tomorrow." she added as she started off" toward the dining hall. "You bet we won't," said Harry, "I guess you and I had better be going, George." They exchanged goodnights and Harry and George passed out into the well lighted street. On the corner of Dillie and Euclid Avenue was Sulzer's popular moving picture theatre. They were both arrested by the alluring signs displayed in front. "Humph — This is one on me," said George, reading the sign aloud. "Donald Rogers, starring Tonight." "Film directed by Ralph Knuth" "I guess it's your turn to do the explaining, Harry." "Nothing simpler. Ralph and Donald are both in Hollywood at present working on a new film. Ralph likes his work very much and is achieving a wide reputation in film land. Donald is en- amoured with his work and more than once been called the second Charlie Chaplin." "This has been a day of surprises for all of us" soliloquized George, as they moved on. On parting for the night Harry said, "I wouldn't be a bit surprised to wake up in the morning and find it all a dream." "A good night's rest will help toward making your dream seem real. So long." bo long. Hardly had Harry breakfasted the next morn- ing when a letter was handed him. He opened it eagerly. It was from Wilhelmina Daus, the mayor, and requested Harry's presence at her palatial home on Friday. The affair was to be a class reunion. Telegrams had been sent to Ralph and Donald. On Friday the class of '22 assembled with their greatest friend, Miss Burgess. It was an event that none ever forgot. Harry, of course, had been asked to make the toast and he sug- gested that after this there ought to be a reunion every year. His suggestion met with unanimous favor. Wilhelmina Daus. Celia Camine. 20 Class Prophecy I WAS seated in my studio, they call them "atelier" in Pans, putting the finishing touches on a canvas which I had just about completed. My thoughts were running in two different channels. I was thinking of the painting and whether it would win the prize at the Pans Salon and whether I should have a rich elaborate frame or a plain simple one. As for the other strain of musing, the painting might again account for it, in fact it did. I was thinking of days gone by, my school days, twenty years past. The subject of my picture was an old gray haired man sitting before an old-fashioned fire- place recalling the days of his youth. 1 called the painting "Memories." Recently I often caught myself brooding deeply over things which I knew, if indulged in too much, would make me morbid and dull. Such was the case now and it was with difficulty that I aroused myself when my servant announced that a lady was waiting in the vestibule and wished to come in and speak to me about a portrait. I looked at the card and on it was written — Mrs. J. J. Van- dergould, New York. "Ah," I exclaimed to myself, "a lady from my native land, how delightful. Show her in, Lucien." A moment later I was standing face to face with a woman about thirty-five years of age, but still retaining much of her girlish beauty. Her hair was a wonderful burnished gold, and bobbed, for all the women have their hair bobbed now, young and old. In this well dressed and elegant personage that stood before me I recalled someone I used to know, but who that someone was I could not say just then. I was somewhat startled when she spoke. "Why, hello Al, you keep a grand looking place here, don't you? What! don't you remember me?" At the sound of her voice I knew instantly who she was and I replied eagerly, "Hello, yourself, Loretta Dowd, you came just in time. I was going to pack up and take a trip to the U. S. A. again to see the family and also any one else I used to know. By the way, Loretta, you don't look so poor." Indeed her rich dress and aristocratic air told of wealth. She replied: "Well, no. I have money enough to last me I guess. You know when Mr. Vandergould died he left something like two million for me but of course I had to give a good share of it to the Soviet." "Great Scott, Retta, you didn't marry Mr. Vandergould of New York City! He's dead you say and you a widow," I exclaimed astonished. "Yes," she nodded and continued, "Since the Socialist Revolution he worried himself to death. You know how the Communists preyed on the wealthy. Al, New York today is simply overrun with those terrible Russian Guards. Of course Paris is full of them too, but New York, well you see we are not used to it over there. It's the same all over the world I suppose since the Bolsheviks came into power." "Don't I know it though," I replied sadly. "The Russians have invaded the world of art as well as politics. It takes all I can do to keep my position. Let me see, you came here to interview me about a portrait didn't you? Well I am at your service." "Why yes, I did offer that as an excuse to see you. I saw your name on numerous pictures at the Louvre and the Salon and I felt that being here I couldn't lose this opportunity of coming to visit you. Being here though I think I shall have you do me in oil." "Now, 'Retta, since you're here and will be coming here for some time, because it will take quite a number of sittings, you know, let's talk of old times and forget the present. I was to have my wish gratified at last. Surely Loretta would know something about the home folks and the old Shore crowd. I continued: "When did you see or hear about Jim last? He just seemed to drop right out of my horizon or else I dropped from his when I came to Pans, ^tou realize, Loretta, that I have never returned home since I came here twenty years ago." 21 "It must seem long to you, Al," she answered. "Things in America have changed so since the Soviet Revolution that you would be disappointed if you did go back. I haven't seen or heard a thing of Jim, Irene, Eva or any of the others with whom we graduated. I'll tell you what I'll do, Al, in order to find them and see what they're doing. Let's see, there will be a week between sittings for my portrait, won't there?" "Yes," I replied, wondering what her plan might be. "I have money enough to influence the Soviet at Moscow. I will fly over there tomorrow morning in my Sky-rocket because it will be best to talk to the agent in person. I will have it broad-casted by wireless that I want to know the where-abouts of James Howard, Irene Waters, Eva Smith, Irving Stras- bourger, and Ralph Pteiffer. The International Guard is scattered all over the world and it will be but a few hours before I have my information. It will be worth the price, don't you think?" "I'll say so. Surprising I did not think of it before. I have wanted to hear about the gang so much. When you know where they are you can easily visit them and have a good talk. Would that I could go with you. But I shall soon start on a portrait of Morewineski, the Soviet chief and I cannot let that go by. I shall ask you to come for your first sitting next week at this time. Here's hoping you will be successful in your efforts." "That's all right with me, Al, next week it shall be. I'll start my search immediately- Goodbye." She closed the door and was gone. From that day until she came for her first sitting, I was so impatient and restless that I could not put my mind on my work. The day arrived and Loretta walked in with a triumphant look on her face. I never was so happy in all my life. I told her to relate her experiences at once. "Oh Al," she began, "I had more success than I hoped for. I got all their addresses in one day and would you believe me —I didn't have to go out of Moscow for Jim Howard." "What," I exclaimed, "Jim in Moscow! What is he doing at the world's capital ?" "Oh, he is very successful. For one thing he's a favorite, yes, an intimate friend of the Soviet leader. Morewineski and he conducts the Opera Inter- nationale and also the Ballet Commune. If anyone has struck it rich he surely has. I asked him whether he was going back to the U. S. or stay at the capital and he said he was going home for a year or so and then return to Moscow." "Is he married?" I asked. "No, he says that women are too independent these days and he cannot bother about a wife, since his whole heart is absorbed in his work." "I think, Loretta, that you have done a good week's work. Anything else you know ?" "I guess not. I attended the Opera and Ballet and it surely was good. Jim is a genius with the baton." Thus Loretta and I talked away while we decided what pose she would take and I made the first preliminary sketches. Soon it was time for her to go again. This time she was to be absent only four days. I knew little if anything of her plans or where she was going next and all I could do was kill time until she came once more. The day came. It was Thursday, and she arrived punctually with the same radiant smile on her countenance. "Whom did you see now?" I asked expectantly. "You'd never guess," she laughed as she said it. "Monday I took a trip to the old U. S. A. Nothing happened much on the way over except that I had to land at Bermuda at one o'clock in the afternoon to fix my rudder on the tail of the Rocket. I arrived at Denver, Colorado, at four in the afternoon." "What were you doing in Denver, I'd like to know?" I asked since I knew nothing of her plans. The following narrative followed and completes one more incident in our quest for knowledge of our friends, the Seniors of 1922. 22 "The reason for my traveling to Denver is that I discovered Irving Stras- bourger is staying there. You know that Denver is the world wireless center and I suspected Irving to be there. You should have seen him. You wouldn't recognize him at all. He has grown a magnificent beard and mustache and he has allowed his curly hair to grow down the back of his neck in the latest style. I found him hard at work in his laboratory which is the nucleus of the wireless stations. He is the chief there by the looks of things. I was especially im- pressed by his calm and steady manner and the quiet way in which he took the report which had just been brought to him about an earthquake damaging one of his stations in California. But you should have seen him when he received a message from his wife telling him to hurry home because Izzy, (which I was told was his youngest) had come down with the measles. That, unfortunately, ended our interview and I started back to Paris to tell you all about it." "Well isn't that the limit. Say, 'Retta, do you know what a big thing you are doing? It surely is interesting to know that some of the fellows are success- ful anyway." "Yes," she agreed, "tomorrow I am going after one of the girls. I won't tell you which one so you can be wondering until the next time I come, which will be another week. Am I right? I may be able to call on two this time so I'll have a lot to talk about next week. I'll have to be careful going across the ocean tomorrow. You know I was caught speeding in the lower level when I left Bermuda and so they are on the lookout for me. I am pretty sure they got my number. I shall take the Southern route on my next trip over. I am going to my hotel now and won't see you for a week, so goodbye." I said goodbye and she was gone. How I envied her. All I saw or heard ot the world was very little. Though all the devices and ingenious methods for the spreading ot news were employed by all nations yet I had nothing to do with these. When my success proved to be a real and honest to goodness thing then I too would see the world and enjoy myself to the fullest extent. Meanwhile I waited for Loretta's visit and dabbled a little at my work. The day came at last when Loretta was to come. On the very hour that she usually arrived in she came, true to her promise. I grasped her hand eagerly. "I can see that you were successful again!" "Oh, of course," she assured me. "I couldn't help but be. I'll tell you right off the bat whom I saw this time. First I had a good old talk with Eva Smith and then I went over and visited Ralph Pfeiffer. My gracious, but I was surprised at Eva. She is about a foot taller than when I saw her last. She has a wonderful stylish stout figure but it is somewhat overcome by her knickers. She told me that she was professor of chemistry and physics at the big Pfeiffer University at Chicago. I forgot to tell you that she lives in Chicago. She moved there from some little town a year ago, I think it was New York, and settled in Chicago. Strange isn't it that Chicago has grown so, but of course since the St. Lawrence water route was completed it has grown to three times its former size. It now rivals Moscow. As I said before, Eva teaches at the Pfeiffer University and is now one of the world's greatest authorities on science and chemistry. She has separated radium into four different elements and is now experimenting on some new gas. She also has propounded a new theory ot sound and vocal vibrations which will upset the old laws and teachings." "You say she teaches at the Pfeiffer University? Has Ralph Pfeiffer any connection with it?" I asked this because I had been so surprised lately that nothing would be unreasonable to surmise. "That was just what I was going to tell you. I drove over to Cleveland from Chicago and I visited Ralph at his city home on the Grand River right near the Lake. It's a beautiful place and Ralph has just oodles of money." "The Grand River! Why that's way out in Painesville or Fairport. It can't be his city home you mean his country home." I had thought she was mistaken in her statement but she soon explained it all to me. "Why no, Al, it isn't Painesville anymore; it is inside the city limits now and is all built up. You wouldn't recognize Euclid or Noble either, they're all 21 absorbed in the city too. Well as I was saying I had a chat with Ralph and from what his wife and daughter Mary (she's about sixteen I think) told me I understand Ralph made his fortune superintending the construction of the two immense dams across the Mississippi at St. Louis and New Orleans and also for the one across the Amazon in South America. The power plants at these dams furnish electricity for the whole world you know. Ralph drew all the plans and designs for the great structures." "He hasn't wasted his money either," she continued, "he has done much in the line of charity and has founded one of the largest Universities at Chicago. I he same one in which Eva teaches and which also bears Ralph's name." "Everything has gone fine so far, hasn't it?" I said joyfully, but I was not so gay when Loretta remarked that she was a little uncertain of finding Irene. "I received several reports as to the whereabouts of Irene and I don't know just which to accept as the correct address. But I won't make you uneasy, I'll simply do my best and I'll call on you again in a week. If that's alright I shall go now since I'm in need of a rest. Goodbye." Again I was left alone to ponder over the news that had been gathered from the four corners of the globe. There was yet one more mystery to be solved. Where was Irene Waters and what was her fate ? The wait did not seem long since time passed swiftly on account of my having completed the portrait of Morewineski and also for the first time in a long while making a trip to Britain for a few things that I had needed badly. I went by air though I could have gone by rail all the way to London since the tunnel under the channel had been finished. I was in the best of spirits when Loretta came again. She had a worn haggard look on her face but under it was a flush of triumph. I began to question her but she motioned for me to sit down and began her story. "When I received the message from the Communist Guards as to the whereabouts of our old pals, I found that I had four different addresses for Irene. They came in one day with intervals of about an hour between. First message was Seattle, second was Rio de Janiero, third was New Orleans, and the fourth was San Francisco. I was at a loss to know whether to go or not. Finally I decided to wait and see if any more messages came and if not to set out for San Francisco. No more came, so I went and soon found out where she was staying. I was surprised to find her living in China town, in a picturesque dwelling along the water front. She was glad to see me and this is the story of her life. A couple of years after she left high school she taught a class in physical culture in New York City. Some man connected with theatrical productions saw her work and suggested that she appear in vaudeville in an acrobatic act. She followed his suggestion and soon became a popular star. After a time on account of the routine of the work she decided to leave it all and live an outdoor life. She then invested in an aeroplane and conducted a passenger service across the Pacific from San Francisco to Yokohama. For two years she did this but then her spirit grew weary of the monotony of this work and she looked about her for new worlds to conquer. By a streak of luck she got a chance to offer her services to the Soviet Secret Service and now is quite a power in this monstrous organization. She said she enjoyed her work immensely, for it was so thrilling. She was just about to wind up a case she had been working on for the last month or so, a plot the Chinese had made against the Soviet in the Western Hemisphere. That accounts for the numerous addresses I had received by wireless. She told me she could retire at any time she wished and get an immense revenue or pension from the Soviet, but she wanted to continue the work because she liked it. A Chinaman came in just then and she gave me a smile, a hasty farewell and was gone." "Isn't it great to know that all of them are successful, Loretta, and happy? I never dreamed that our class of 1922 would rise to such prominence in this busy world. When I finish my work here which I hope will be soon I'm going to visit all of them and we'll see if we can't all have a jolly reunion and jubilee. Wouldn't that be great? I just know everyone of them would be tickled to death." A.

The Junior Class History ONE beautiful day in early September, 1919, the Class of 1923 entered Shore High School. There were ten of them —all full-fledged "freshies." They were small and frightened but independent, and determined that they would take nothing from the upper classmen. Like all "freshies," however, they had much to learn. By the end of the first semester four girls, Cecelia Ronske, Lena Krauss, Beulah Bickley and Martha Miller had deserted the ranks leaving Hadden Lentz, Alfred Bonnema, Raymond Smith, Pauline Didion, Mary Tryon and Evelyn Ely. However, these all survived the hard knocks of being freshmen and received report cards at the end of the year marked "promoted to grade ten." The "freshies" prayers had been answered. They had been spared. Next September saw them all back ready for another dose of high school medicine — that is, hard work and study. In November the Class received a new member, Kathleen Hamilton. This year Shore had its own gymnasium, so the "sophs" took an active part in athletics. Alfred Bonnema and Hadden Lentz were members of the boy's basket ball team, while Kay Hamilton and Evelyn Ely played on the girl's team. Alfred Bonnema also played on the Euclid-Shore team. After the basket ball season came the operetta and play. The sophomore girls who took part in the girl's glee club operetta were: Mary Tryon, Evelyn Ely and Kay Hamilton. Alfred Bonnema, Raymond Smith and Hadden Lentz helped to make the play a great success. The school paper staff included several sophomore members, Alfred Bonnema being business manager; Evelyn Ely and Mary Tryon associate literary editors. So at the end of the year a number of the sophomores had won their places in the Hall of Fame. Again they received report cards marked, "promoted" but this time to grade eleven. The following September found them anxious to acquire knowledge and work for the Glory of Old Shore High. That year five new members were entered, namely: Charlotte Weihs, Mary Taylor, Francis Fryon, Loretta Wisneski and Howard Du Pre. Soon after school started two literary societies were organized. Kay was captain of the Shoronians and many of the juniors held temporary offices in the Delphic society. When the basket ball season started they again had places of prominence. This year Alfred Bonnema was elected captain of the boy's team. Three other juniors, Hadden Lentz, Ray- mond Smith and Howard Dupree played on the team. The girls again placed Kay and Evelyn on their team. Kay played guard and Evelyn forward. As soon as basket ball was over operetta practice began in earnest. The juniors taking leading parts were Kay Hamilton as "Miss Carewe;" Mary Tryon as "Violet", Charlotte Weihs as "Miss MifFens" and Mary Taylor as "Vera Burdett." A junior party was given as a grand finale for the year. Although they have not done half the things they had planned to do they have worked hard for the glory of Shore High. E. E. '23.

Our first days seemed very strange to all of us, but as various interesting things came to our attention, their strangeness disappeared and we became more and more like the others. Our kind and understanding teachers, too, tried to make us feel at home, and to lead us into the right paths of learning. Soon came football and basketball, in which we, being greatly interested, played our part in helping to win games and county championships. Scholar- ship, too, was not neglected by us. There was great, though, friendly, rivalry and competition between our members, each one trying to attain the highest standing. Thus our Freshmen year ended with a strong spirit of friendliness and loyalty, and with a feeling of independence, that was fairly won. In our Sophomore year we lost no time in showing our abilities and imme- diately found our places in all the organizations and social activities of the school. In this second year our attention was not only drawn to the winning of sport championships, but also to the forming of two great literary societies, the "Delphics" and the "Shoronians." Frequently a member of our class was chosen chairman of the program committee, or editor of the paper. Toward the latter part of the year it was suggested to us, by our teachers, that we should not consider ourselves merely as a number of boys and girls, but instead should organize, that we might gain strength. This we did, elect- ing our president, vice-president, and secretary, also choosing class colors and flower. Through our high school course we hope that nothing will ever be able to weaken our class, but that it will increase in wisdom, spirit, enthusiasm, and loyalty, so that after we have finished school we shall be proud to say that we were members of the class of 1924.

We cannot boast a very good start for we found our brain matter rather dried up, and in addition to this we had to get acquainted with great numbers of new students in our class. Finally, however, after hold- ing our regular class meetings, we became acquainted and were told in certain terms to get busy and show the other classes what we could do. We took the hint and together with the Senior class, we proceeded to initiate the rather timid Freshmen. In the fall a few of us accomplished the feat of being a "regular" or "scrub" on the football squad. After a brief lull we entered Basketball and succeeded there also. At mid-year some of us received bad news and we who were the lucky ones, found a few vacancies in our classes and knew what that meant. Among the happenings of the new term was the presentation of letters for service on the gridiron in which a few of our athletes participated and received the big "E." Some of our fellow classmates are filling important positions in the High School orchestra. We have formed plans for our own class party, which is to be the last and best class party of the year. With baseball and examinations yet to come, we hope to show a better record than ever. Through all our glories and honors, through all our trials and tribulations we would be telling but half if we did not give, "honor to whom honor is due."- Miss MacLachlan — our class advisor, who has helped us so faithfully and loyaly. To her is given the credit for our success.

H. S. The others came from Colhnwood Jr. High, Richmond Heights and other schools of E. Cleveland and Cleveland. This is the largest Freshman class that E. H. S. ever has had. Miss Laing is our class advisor and we chose the following officers: Norma Sorter, president; Russell James, vice-president; Grace Pinney, Secretary and Edson Hill, treasurer. Our motto is "Excelsior," our class colors are green and white, and our class flower is the white rose. We gave our Freshman class party on March 18th and it was a great success. Our boys have a very good Basketball team. They have won three games out of six. They played five games at Euclid and one at South Euclid. The boys on the team are: Joseph Schrock, center; Frederick Lindemann, Left Forward; Walter Grubb, Right Forward; Russell James, Left Guard; Edson Hill, Right Guard. Four of our class play in the orchestra. They are Walter Grubb, Ona Lefker, Frederick Keyerleber and Arthur Barwise.

Miss Crone: "Loretta, follow this problem." Loretta: "All right, where did it go?" 36 Freshman Class History THE Freshman Class is one that Shore High can surely be proud of. First of all, it is the largest class to enter high school in the history of Shore School. Eighteen of its present number came from the Eighth Grade and the others have proved a worthy addition to the class. Then too, it seems exceptional in the fact that it has already displayed some characteristics that ought to make it noteworthy in future years. In- stead of staying in the background as many freshmen do, the members of this class have made their presence felt in different ways. They have manifested an unusual interest in the various activities of the school; and have demon- strated their enthusiasm by an eagerness to participate in the literary societies, athletics, the orchestra, social functions, and to contribute to the school paper. Also, one of the number has even been given the honor of being chosen cheer- leader for the Shoronians. The class has been organized and for this reason, too, it ought to become an even more important factor in the school life. In addition to its other fine qualities, the class as a whole ranks well in scholarship, so it seems safe to predict a bright future for the freshmen and one that will continue to bring credit to Shore.

If by chance some one does not understand our organization, let us explain in a few words just what it is. In a Junior High, strictly speaking, the three years 7, 8 and 9, are a unit and it usually occupies a separate building. It is under the supervision of a separate group of teachers and is not as closely connected with the High school. At Shore, we have the Six-Six plan, which is an organization of the last six years as a unit. Our teachers are the same as those of the High School. The size of our classes shows a real gain, by the boys and girls remaining in school instead of dropping out at the end of the seventh and eighth years. Before this plan was put into effect many failed to return, but this year almost One Hundred percent remained in school. There are several reasons for this. We really are a part of the High School. No class can rival the enthusiasm and noise we bring to the various games. Although only "youngsters" in the eyes of the upper classmen, we made a good reputation for ourselves in the Interclass games. Our Junior Department furnished the cheer leader for Shore. Again we have organized two Literary Societies, the Juniors and Vic- torians. We hold our meetings at the same time that the Senior High holds theirs. Each Society has given programs for the other; one combined program has been given. In December, we presented "The Birds' Christmas Carol" to a fine audience in the gymnasium which we use as an auditorium. We have our class representatives who meet with the Advisory Council to discuss any matter of interest to the High School. In these various ways the seventh and eighth grades participate in, and share the activities of the High School. The social affairs of our classes have spoken for themselves. It has been noticeable that even the Sophomores couldn't refrain from coming into the gymnasium during our class parties to look over the wonderful and gorgeous display we made, and it makes us feel very excited even now when we remember how we "tossed off" in truly convivial fashion that "awful" quantity of lemon- ade at our Hallowe'en party. We must not forget to mention that we have supplied the Junior page of the "Shore High Short Hits" with both news and fiction. All this time we have been striving to attain our goals intellectually. Give us time and we will show you that there are "brainy" heads among us. We are justly proud of our devotion to our school and this devotion has been expressed in truly practical fashion in the enthusiasm which we have always shown at rallies. Take heed, therefore ye Upper-classmen. For the "Spirit of the Junior High" is rising and in the years to come your exploits shall pale into insignificance beside the glory of what is today merely the Junior High. 41 The Delphic Literary Society Shore School Eva Smith, Captain Miss Carter, Faculty Adz Alfred Bonnema Carl Brigleb Tony Clement Bernard Daw Pauline Didion Anna Dohnal Rose Dohnal Howard Dupree Frances Fryan Eleanor Gill Dorothy Greshauge Jerome Grossman Harvey Hackathorne Roy Haw Glenn Herrick James Howard Alma Karls Harold Koons isor Caroline Krause Joe Kremm Clifford Latour Hadden Lentz Ethel Mehlberg Charles Merchant Lucille Munzer Albert Neneman La Verne Olson Ernest Peters Colling Snyder Caesar Strasbourger Mary Taylor Mary Tryon Irene Waters Homer Watkins Gladys Wilms 42 The Shoronian Literary Society Kathleen Harm Miss Aingworth - Doretta Armitage Mary Elizabeth Brazee Dudley Carr Marion Collins Ronald Crocket Loretta Dowd Leo Dideon Robert Durstein Esther Feldman Eugene Fryan Joseph Guarino Edward HofFart Royetta Horton Letcher Hutchins Stanley Kirchner Carl La Voie Dorothy Lovejoy Iton — Captain -Faculty Advisor George Merchant Martha Miller Rose Montana Winifred Myers Alvin Mueller Ralph Pfeiffer Alice Peake Rosie Pilla Lola Renner Irving Strasbourger Raymond Smith Neil Smith John Sangster Mike Spino Georgia Thorne Mike Tarentino Charlotte Weihs 43 Original Poem My brain is in a turmoil The reason's short and brief; I've been asked to write a poem By the editor in chief. She'd like something original With subject grave or gay, But what an original subject is T'is really hard to say. Shall I write of love's sweet fancy Violet eyes and curls of gold 'Neath the soft entrancing moonlight Perish the thought 'tis old! Shall I sing a song of nature, Opening buds and bluest sky? But everybody writes of spring I'll have to pass that by. Perhaps ancient archaeology Or something on psychology, Prosody, zoology, Or maybe sociology. Surely one of these will do But stop a moment — still I doubt it For though I like the subject well I do not know a thing about it. Shall it be high ideals Or of immortality? But though I could write on these They lack originality. No, not one of these are new, They are threadbare worn and old The editor said "original" And I must do as I am told. Original, was it? Thus he said, I haven't an original thought in my head So I'll leave it to you Mister editor man, You may write an original verse if you can! K. H. '23— Shore 44 mTiu&TiES 45 46 Euclid-Shore Foot Ball Games FOD D URING the first week of school, football candi- _ _ dates were called out. About thirty responded to the cause, mostly green material. The squad was then cut to 18. Coach Rader was in charge of the backfield while Myers from Shore took care of the line. Harry Knuth was elected cap- tain. The first game was with Central's second team. It was a bloody battle, and the score at the final whistle was 0-0. The second game was with Nottingham. We gave them a whitewash 6-0. The third game was in a pool of mud. We lost to West Commerce 14-0. The fourth game was with Dover. We lost to them 13-7. The fifth game was with South Euclid. The score at half time was 6-0 in their favor. In the third quarter H. Knuth sneaked through for a touchdown and also kicked goal. The sixth game was with Berea on our own field. We beat them by a 14-0 score. The last game of the season was played at Rocky River, deciding the Championship of the county. The field was a regular swamp and it was snowing and raining all through the battle. Euclid was hindered on account of the wet ball as they relied mostly on forward passes. At last our line weakened and they made a touchdown. We held them to that score and finished the game honorably. With the loyal support of Dover and our own school we closed the season on that day and then began to look toward basket ball. Line-up irst Team Lewis L.E. Pfeiffer L.T. Daniels E.G. Steinbrenner C.

Here is good luck 47 T BALL Basket Ball Class A THE Basket Ball season of 1922 although the championship was not won, was quite satisfactory. The games were patronized by large crowds and a great amount of spirit was shown by the students and supporters of the school. The year before the teams of Shore and Euclid were combined but this year each school had its own team, so we entered Class A and Shore took Class B in the County Conference. Three regulars were back on the team: It was H. Knuth's 4th year; R. Knuth's 3rd and Sulzer's 3rd. The teams got away to a slow start, being hindered by other activities in the gymnasium, but the boys practiced faithfully. The loss of so many games misrepresents the playing that was done, but the scores show how close the games were. In many cases luck alone seemed to decide the game. The team entered the tournament at Oberlin on the 3rd and 4th of March. The boys lost to Willoughby 13-9. The team entered the Western Reserve Tournament on the 1 1th of March. Euclid drew Rocky River and gave them a trimming with a score of 7-4. The score at the half was 2-2. The second game of the tournament was against Shaker Heights. The score at the third quarter was 4-0 in Euclid's favor. In the last quarter old punk luck overtook our boys and Shaker ran up four points. A foul was called on one of our men and Shaker made the basket winning 5-4. The boys and rooters were disappointed at this result but they hope for better luck next year. The judges picked a mythical team from the teams in Class A. Harry Knuth, Captain, was picked as the all scholastic center and was awarded a silver watch fob. As to our coach, Alfred Rader, the boys of the team wish to say he did his best and still better. He took the games to heart more than did the boys. The boys want to thank him for his great work in Athletics and in the school.

He is a good shot and an accurate passer. Before he leaves Shore High he will be a wonder at the cage game. ALFRED BONNEMA, Captain— Guard "Bonnie" was chosen Captain of the team during the season of 1921-1922 and was a very capable leader. He is a bulwark of defense and always shoulders his responsibilities. Great things are expected from" Bonnie" next year. NEIL SMITH— Forward "Swipes" was the biggest little man on the team. As a running mate for "Pat" he was never surpassed and always played a bang up game, both at home and abroad. He has two more years on the varsity and will be a terror to all opponents. HADDEN LENTZ— Forward "Pat" sprang into tame in the cage game because of his exceptional ability to pass and follow the ball. He played a great floor game all season and broke up many of his opponents' plays. "Pat" will be seen in action in a Shore uniform next year. 51 RALPH PFEIFFER— Center "Pfeiffer" was the man who played the pivot position for Shore, and was the best point getter on the team. His playing in the Dyke game was excellent and everyone at Shore was sorry to have him leave before the close of the season. He will be missed at Shore next year. Success to you, Ralph. JEROME GROSSMAN— Center "Jerry" was an eleventh hour man who came to us at mid-year. He was the man for the center position. He plays a good defensive game and we are relying upon him for the next season. RAYMOND SMITH— Guard "Smit" as a substitute as back guard for Shore. He came through every time the coach called upon him. He helped wonderfully to keep up the fighting spirit of the team. This was his first season at the game. He will be with us next year. HOWARD DUPREE— Forward "Dupy" came to Shore late in the season and gave a very good account of himself at the cage game. He pulled the team out of holes more than once with his accurate passing and his foul shooting. HENRY RONSKE— Forward "Heinie" was one man on the team who was unfortunate in having sickness interfere with his career on the Varsity. He came back fighting hard and promises to be a good man next year. JOHN CHRISTOPHER— Guard "Christy" is a Varsity sub. Although he didn't play in many of the games he has shown himself to be a man with the Shore High fighting spirit. He is a promising candidate for the Varsity next year. A Tribute to Shore High School S is school spirit, we all have at Shore. H is high aims, for which we strive o'er and o'er, is for one-ness, together we stand. R is for right, our ruling command. E means endeavor, which our tasks demand. H for harmony, the aim of our School. 1 is for industry, our Golden Rule. G stands for glory, for this we all fight. H is the hearts, that lead us aright. S is success, that all lose if they shirk. C is for courage, which helps us to work. , H is the happiness, found in our hall. O for optimism, which cheers us all. O is Old Glory, that o'er us unfurls. L is for loyalty, the last of these pearls. THE ANNUAL The Annual is a queer invention. The High School gets the fame, The printer gets the money, And the staff gets all the blame. 52 Shore High Girls Win Championship THE cheering force of Shore High has a big job on its hands to do all the cheering due the girl's team of Shore High. Gaze on the girls; the Champions of Cuyahoga County. This team has played twelve games and won all ot them, and Shore High people aren't the only ones who are proud of this team. Perhaps you saw their pictures in the papers, not only once, but twice. The girls have outclassed any city or county team which they have encountered this year. They have piled up 303 points while their opponents have the small total of 98 points. It is the first time in the history of the school that the girls' team has won every game it has played and this honor is one long to be remembered. These girls are put- ting great hopes on the next year, but regret that their speedy side center and Captain, Eva Smith, and star basket shooter and Manager, Irene Waters, are leaving them. But here's hoping their luck continues. This has been one of the most successful years in basket ball for the girls. But it wasn't accomplished unaided. The untiring and faithful efforts of their coach, Miss Aingworth, added more than can be expressed to the winning of the games. She worked with the girls at every practice, never failing to do all she could to make Shore's team the verv best. 53 The Shore-Willoughby Game THE whistle blew! The ball was started on its way. For twenty eight minutes the battle raged between the girls of Shore and the girls of Willoughby. Of course it was not a continuous fight for twenty-eight minutes. The game was divided into quarters with a few minutes between each. And it was played so that the rest was well earned and needed, for never, I think, did twelve girls play harder or better. It would be impossible to pick out one or two stars, for everyone starred — Dorothy and Eva got the ball down to Irene and Evelyn time after time and once the ball was in the hands of one of our forwards — we were nearly sure of two more points. If the ball did get down to the Willoughby forwards, Lucille and Kathleen were always right there to send it back. All the good playing was not done by Shore either, for Willoughby had six stars too. Neither team had lost a game this year and no one knew until the whistle blew for the last time whose record was to be unbroken. Shore was ahead at first, but Willoughby gained and the last quarter the score was 13-13. Then Irene came to the rescue, as she always does, and shot one basket and a foul bringing the score up to 16-13 in our favor. Then the whistle blew, the game was over and Shore had won. The Rocky River Game on the Home Floor Then the Rocky River game brought also, a great deal of excitement. The score was close — in fact Rocky River was ahead at the close of the first half. However, Irene came to the front and made the score a tie and so it remained until the last few minutes of play. Tho' Irene was knocked out twice she insisted upon playing and came across with two baskets at the very end. Hurray! Shore at Rocky River The Shore girls not satisfied with their eleven victories, journeyed to Rocky River on March 16th in quest of their twelfth one. It was a close and hard fought game and the Shore girls had to work for the thirteen points which they won. The opponents were ahead during most of the game, but the Shore girls determined to win and put every ounce of strength into their playing. Talk about pep! Well! You just have to "fess up" that it was one of the peppiest and fastest games of the season. Shore is certainly proud of her six stars!

During her four years of High she was always seen playing the role of side center. What she lacked in size she made up in speed and her opponent usually had a hard time keeping track of her. IRENE WATERS, Manager—Forward "Weiners" has had a great deal to do with the game scores this year. When she gets her hands on the ball invariably two points are added to Shore's score. She has played on the Varsity four years, two as guard and two as forward. "Weiners" is not only good at caging the ball but also at managing the team. For two years she has been business manager and surely has been an efficient one. We are sorry that this is her last year at Shore. DOROTHY LOVEJOY— Center "Dot" our center, although this was her first year on the Varsity, handled the game like an old veteran. In her freshman year she showed great ability in playing. "Dot" is one of those who takes things easy. No matter what happens, she never gets excited. There are very few girls who can out-jump her. She played "sub" for us last year and was always on the job when necessary. Shore is looking forward to great things from her next year. LUCILLE MUNZER— Guard Lucille is always ready to "rough 'em up" if necessary. There is not much chance of a forward making a basket when Lucille is around to guard her. She is short but, oh! how she can jump. She has played on the Varsity two years and in her remaining two years we are expecting her to be recognized as an "all round star." EVELYN ELY— Forward "Beanie" is our good old faithful. She has always been a basket ball enthusiast and has tried her hand at playing all the positions on the team. In past years she has specialized as guard and center, but this year we found her real ability was in shooting baskets. We are indeed glad that "Beanie" is to be with us next year to play forward again. KATHLEEN HAMILTON— Guard "Kay" is our big guard. Have you ever seen her play? If so, you'll not forget her because she has a style all her own. "Kay" came from Canada last year and had not played basket ball before. With her usual pep and energy, however, she began to practice and before the season was far advanced was playing on the varsity. She is a junior, so will be with us to play again next year. 55 vm m b£feys li^^^ Li iJ^W^t f^fei 8u*pm« IMLrif^nll i" ' ■ 7 i - ' H .'._'.__ 1 1 ...... .JEv,. .■....■■- : : :: '"" Kf Girls' Basketball Team Eleanor Harmon, Manager Mabel Hutchinson, Captain Mr. Alfred Rader, Coach Mary Balash '25, L.

Shaker Heights Girls Indoor Baseball Team Whoever heard of a girls indoor baseball team at E. H. S. before 1922? No, neither did I, but let me tell you, even if basket ball season is over that has not put a stop to sports for the girls. What a merry time we do have twice a week. Our material is very promising and we regret that this Annual goes to press before we have some games and scores to report. As this is the first year for this organization in our high school we hope to carry it out successfully and we will with the aid of Miss Laing, our supervisor. The following girls were chosen as officers: — Mabel Hutchinson '22, Captain. Wilhelmina Daus, '22, Manager.

The senior membership consists of a number of adult wireless enthusiasts of our community, while the Juniors hail mostly from Shore High School. Meetings are held on the first and third Wednesday evenings of each month. The programs include up-to-the-minute lectures, code practice, in fact those things which may enable amateurs to secure a government operator's license. A free circulating library is maintained from which members may secure the latest copies of electrical, mechanical and Radio magazines. The club also publishes a magazine which is devoted to the practical as well as the theoretical side of radio. February first, nineteen-twenty-two the club held a very successful Radio dance at Shore gymnasium. It was indeed novel. The music was broadcasted from W. R. Cox's Station on Payne Avenue, Cleveland, fifteen miles away. Plans are on foot for radio concerts and lectures in the future to which the public will be invited. Fred A. Bates, President. The Scarlet Tanager A flash of color beneath the sky, The scarlet tanager is passing by. Black and red and grayish white Its brilliant color is a beautiful sight. It feeds upon berries and seeds Also insects in large quantities. High in the tree this proud bird sits. Its song like the robin's but higher pitched. » Nest, loosely made of twigs and rootlets On the tall tree near the brooklet. Here with sharp eyes may be seen Four pale eggs of bluish green.

With prac- tically all veterans left from the year before our club had a good start. A meeting was called at the beginning of the year for the purpose of organizing and interesting new girls in the Club. Shortly afterward a "try-out" was held. A second meeting took place and a warm welcome was given to our new mem- bers. Under the leadership of our director our Club meets once a week. We feel that our Club has been successful as we have appeared before the school and community throughout the year. In the month of April the girls will give an operetta entitled "The Feast of the Little Lanterns." 62 Girls' Glee Club Shore High School Smith, Leader Kathleen Hamilton, Stage Manag Doretta Armitage Marion Collins Anna Dohnal Rose Dohnal Loretta Dowd Evelyn Ely Dorothy Greshauge Caroline Krause Dorothy Lovejoy Charlotte Weihs The American Girl Irene Waters, Librarian er Ethel Mehlberg Rose Montana Lucille Munzer Winifred Myers LaVerne Olson Rosie Pilla Mary Taylor Georgia Throne Mary Tryon Everyone remembers what a wonderful operetta the girls gave last year. The one which was given April twenty-first of this year was equally as good, if not better. It was the story of an American girl who was travelling with her father in England, when he is suddenly called to Berlin on business. He arranged for his daughter, Eva Hope, by name, accompanied by her maid, to stay with his sister, Lady Melton, at Bedford Hall. By some mistake Eva came to Bedford House, a summer school kept by Miss Carew, who was expecting a new pupil from Ireland. Eva arrived during the temporary absence of Miss Carew and soon discovered her error, but agreed to stay for a day and impersonate the Irish girl. This led to amusing incidents, as Miss Carew, who was slightly deaf was completely deceived. The leading part was taken by Eva Smith while Irene Waters, whose reputation as a comedian was made in last year's production, once more entertained us as onlv Irene can do. 63 The Euclid Men's Club DURING the month of October in the year 1921 an idea was born which resulted in the forming of a club for the men of Euclid and vicinity. This organization is formally known as the Euclid Men's Club and has lor its purpose the development of the general welfare of the community, to promote the social, civic, physical and cultural life and establish a better and more neighborly relationship among the residents. An extensive program was mapped out by the Officers and Directors which was presented to the Chairman of the Standing Committees. In justice to these chairmen it must be stated that they performed their duties admirably. As an educational feature, speakers were procured and addressed the club once each month. Dances were given twice a month to furnish entertainment and promote the social life. Thursday night of each week was gym night and practice night for the basket ball teams. The Club maintained and equipped a men's and women's basket ball team and it can be truthfully stated that both teams were a source of pleasure and pride to the community as they suffered only three defeats during the entire season. During the winter months the Club through its Civic Affairs Committee distributed baskets to quite a number of needy families and was instrumental in procuring employment for several of the unemployed men. The Officers and Directors desire to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to the people for the support they have given throughout the past season and hope the coming season will find every man eager to join this organization and boost its cause and ideals and thereby make the Euclid Men's Club a power for good in the village of Euclid. C. T. Downer, President The Euclid Athletic Club In the autumn of 1920 the necessity was felt for an organization to promote athletics, sociability and good fellowship among the men of Euclid Village. The suggestion of an Athletic Club met with favor and membership was readilv secured. Mr. Leo Cantlin was chosen President and Mr. Carl Baeckler, Secretary. The first year the Club maintained two basketball teams and a baseball club. The Club's first minstrel show was successfully produced at the Euclid Auditorium. Dances were arranged for each month and were well patronized. The next year the need for a club house was felt and the picturesque Baeckler farm house in the beautiful Euclid Valley off Highland Road was leased. This is still the home of the club. The past year the boys have had two excellent basketball teams and anticipate putting a baseball team in the field. Two minstrel and vaudeville entertainments have been produced and social dances have been available for the public. The present officers are: W. A. Steinbrenner, President; Carl Baeckler, Recording Secretary; B. Frank Thomas, Financial Secretary; Leonard Evans, Treasurer; John Sullivan, Athletic Director. The Club has a membership of 175 and supplies a long felt need tor that section of Euclid Village where it is located. C. A. B. 65 The East Shore Community Club THE Shore Community Club was organized in December 1920 to create among the women of the community a wider interest in civic affairs and to promote a greater degree of sociability- Since that time success has crowned its efforts and many good things are credited to this group of over one hundred women. Through co-operation with the teaching staff of Shore School, with the Red Cross, and with other community organizations, the Club has been enabled to carry out its programme. The Girl Scouts, a troop of Boy Scouts, and a Camp Fire Group have been organized and started on their way through the interest and help of the older organization. Co-operation with the other community clubs in the village has established and equipped a health center for Euclid. Much practical knowledge has been gained from the course of lectures on "Milk as a Food" and the course on "Fundamentals of Health Education." Not only physical benefit but keen enjoyment came from the gymnasium class open to the ladies of the Club. With all these more serious interests, not omitting our participation in the political welfare of the village, the Club has still found time for the purely social and recreational side of life. All who attended the "Womanless Wed- ding," the Bazaar, and the dancing parties can testify to this. The social hour following the regular meetings has been a source of great pleasure. To those who have not yet affiliated with the Club, a most cordial invita- tion is extended with the assurance that the programme for the coming year will be full of interest to all. Mrs. Thos. Mathews. 66 The Euclid Community Club SEVERAL years ago, it was felt that a need existed in Euclid for an organ- ization which should bring together all the woman of the village for both civic and social purposes. As a result, about thirty women organized themselves into the Euclid Community Club in January, 1917, under the direction of Miss Susan Pomerene of the Cleveland Federation of Women's Clubs. From the beginning the interest evinced has justified its existence. In the course of the last five years the Club has accomplished many things. Its first efforts were more to promote sociability. As the need for war work arose, the Club eagerly undertook its share of the responsibility through its support of a French war orphan for two years and its Red Cross work. One of our members, Miss Virginia Martin, served in France as a Red Cross nurse. The following are among the things we have accomplished in the last three years; the institution of clean-up day; the contribution of a generous sum of money to the health center; the equipment of the Community Kitchen; the co-operation with village officials in helping impoverished families; milk to needy children in school and the organization of a gymnasium class. We have sponsored school fairs, held receptions for the teachers in our schools, given a Christmas party for children of the first six grades, held a bazaar and supper, used our influence for the numbering of houses, given many evening parties, some lectures and a banquet each June for club members and their friends. In addition to these many activities the regular meetings held the second Ihursday afternoon of each month, excepting in July and August, have always been very interesting and profitable. Mrs. J. C. Kline. 67 The Seniors' Automobile Party WHEN the Seniors announced that there would be an automobile party on the 28th of January much curiosity was aroused. Some pupils thought they would have a ride. Still curious the pupils and teachers arrived at 8 P. M. and were greeted with license tags. The guests now pro- ceeded to the gym and compliments on the decorations were then in order. They were of blue and gold. Automobile tires wound in blue and gold with a large bow on top were placed at intervals about the gym. The Senior president announced an auto race as the starter and that the prize would be emergency tire patches. In this contest between Ford and Pierce-Arrow, the Fords won and each one on the winning side was presented with a stick of gum. Then we had an enjoyable time playing "Park." An "Automobile Romance" was read to discover the best poet of the crowd, the guests went to Jerusalem in a Ford, and there was an automobile guessing contest. Then suddenly every one's attention was attracted by cries of "Gas," "Tires," "Step this way, please." They soon discovered that these were lemon- ade and doughnuts. Parts of autos were distributed and the pieces matched for the first dance. While the dancing was in progress a "surprise" was an- nounced. The dancers gathered around to see what would happen. A storm of confetti rained upon them. Finally we played "Three Deep" (ask Mr. Rader) until it was time for the home waltz. Private Showing of Dan Cupid's Masterpieces EUCLID, O., Feb. 12, 1922, a large but very select gathering viewed the private exhibition of Cupid's masterpieces last evening. The delightful affair was given under the auspices of Miss Harms and her famous Junior Class. The art gallery was beautifully decorated with cupids, hearts and red tulips. The guests, who proved themselves real patrons of art, numbered about seventy. After viewing the portraits the guests spent the rest of the evening in writing Valentine telegrams, playing "Hearts," unlocking a heart while blind- folded, answering Cupid's questionnaire and dancing. Prizes were awarded to Mr. R. Knuth for the best telegram; to Mr. W. Sulzer for unlocking the heart; to Mr. H. Knuth and Miss B. Johns for successfully answering the questionnaire. Ice cream and hearts were served to refresh the merry gathering. It is hoped that more affairs of this nature will be given soon so our appre- ciation of the fine arts may be developed. Helen Cook ,., Louise Recher The Sophomore Party Euclid Central The Sophomores gave a party to the Faculty and High School on April 18th in the gymnasium. The gym was decorated with the class colors which are dark and light blue and gold. The class banner also helped to make it attractive. The committees were busy all day making preparations for the big night. At eight o'clock everybody was there, and then the fun began. Alice Cook and Anna Velvick welcomed our guests and gave to each a clown for a favor. The program consisted of games and dancing. One feature of the evening was a grand march, during which confetti was distributed. This was one of the many surprises for the evening. After the confetti and serpentine were thrown our guests were divided into groups. When everyone was seated the girls served the refreshments which consisted of: Chicken Sandwiches, Nut and Date Sandwiches, Pickles and Olives, Cake, Orange Sherbet, Candy. 68 Freshman Party Euclid Central A Saint Patrick's Party was given by the Freshman on March 18th. The gymnasium was decorated with green and white crepe paper put up in a style all our own. Between 8 and 10:30 we amused the company with several games such as an Irish potato race, drop the handkerchief, "Farmer in the Dell," and a fortune telling game that one of our geniuses invented. Refreshments were served consisting of shamrock ice cream and St. Patrick cakes and candies. Many of the guests also enjoyed dancing. Delphic Party ONE of the greatest social events of the season at Shore and one which most of Shore's students attended took place when the Delphics entertained the Shoronians in the gymnasium Saturday night, Feb- ruary eleventh. The prevailing colors in the decorations were red and white and were carried out appropriately in the Valentine idea. The festivities began at eight o'clock and the folks began to file in the ball room by twos and threes. The revelers were supposed to appear in farmer's attire since it was to be a hoosier jubilee, but the majority of the lads were too bashful, or perhaps they had no suitable clothes, for only the members of the fair sex came appro- priately dressed. The opening sally of the night was "Farmer in the Dell" and was followed by other games with a dance or two thrown in at intervals. Punch and wafers were placed for consumption in a corner of the gym. Near the close of the evening the crowd went down to the lunch room and partook of ice cream and cake. After thus feasting they repaired again to the gymnasium and tripped the fantastic toe before returning home. The ' 'Kid" Party THE bigger they are the harder they fall, and the upper four grades of Shore High fell to a kid party on January fourteenth. The children arrived early in the evening, prepared for a good time. Among the earliest arrivals were little Albert Neneman dressed in his best romper suit. Little Eva Smith came too, but she cried continually for her mamma, making it very hard for her playmate Irene Waters. Youngest of all was little Danny Metts who played true to his age and managed to get his hands into everything. At nine o'clock animal cookies and milk were served. Games related to childhood were played during the evening. A dainty lunch was served in the Kindergarten room which was prettily decorated. In order to conclude the evening in true Kid style, everyone ran for the eleven o'clock car to be certain to get home before daddy and mother would become alarmed. Things I Do I like to go a-swimming when the sun's up over head, Hut taking a dip in the morning is a thing I really dread; I like to go a-fishin' when the fish are biting fine. But I hate just sitting on the bank from six to suppertime. I like to play at baseball, football and other games. But along side all these things, Algebra's awful tame; I like to play the fiddle and lead the cheers and such, But when it comes to concentration and Latin — "Not much." I like to go to parties and have a grand old time. But how I hate to sit and squirm and do that English nine; I like to read new fiction books and college stories, too. But how I sit and worry when I know I won't get through. Arthur Barwise, Euclid, '25. 69 »3 j- •- (j • ~ qj P _ 1- 1- OJ 5 — 3 • — -T3 — ~ p^ g CU " 33 ~ £ . ~:j>C r „ . OJ **■ u ui .

All high school pupils are entitled to wear the plain seal as a pin. Alumni may have either or both pin and ring with their class numeral stamped on the design. It can readily be seen that this is really a great thing for every- one concerned — pupils and alumni alike. It ought to be conducive toward creating a more united school spirit. Such a design would assuredly catch the eye of any former student of the school. Then, there is the idea of its bringing the alumni and students into a closer feeling of fellowship. What could be more suitable for, or more typical of, our school than this design — a lighthouse built upon a solid foundation of rock overlooking a large body of water. How well this suggests the part our school might play in the lives upon whom its light is shed. The use of the seal is not to be limited to the rings and pins. It is our aim to have it displayed on all school correspondence, on our tickets, our programs, our dodgers, and the cover page of our school paper. All this has been made possible through the splendid efforts of Albert Neneman. He is the designer of this unique symbol. May we honor him in future years by striving to make our school stand for the ideals that his efforts suggest. The School Paper IN every student body you will find the spirit of journalism, a longing you might say, for the smell of printer's ink and the joy that one experiences when he views a production that he has written. Shore was no exception to this rule and when its students began to prog- ress, the idea of a school paper was unanimous. The first pamphlet that Shore issued was produced by the Freshmen and consequently was named "Freshmen Hash." However, it did not prove to be so successful as it might have been and in a few years it was only a thing of the past. The idea rested for about three years. In the fall of 1920, Mr. Metts conceived the plan of buying a mimeograph and a mimeoscope, for some money was on hand as a result of a number of Senior play funds. This purchase might be conceded to be very practical for in addition to the experience gained from the school paper work itself, the staffmen also learn the manipulation of the above mentioned machines. A newspaper staff was organized at once and this group produced the paper all through the year of 1920-1921. The unique name of the paper "Shore High Short Hits" was coined by Bertha Whitelaw. In 1921-1922 when our two literary societies were formed the publishing of the paper was put on a somewhat different basis. Each literary society was to put on a program bi-monthly as well as put out the school paper bi-monthly. This was alternated in such a way that the month one society rendered a literary program the other issued the school paper. A copy of the December issue, mailed to Dr. E. K. Fretwell of Columbia University, prompted the following comment: "I think Shore High Short Hits has the first of journalistic virtues. It's interesting. The drawings add greatly. Thank you for sending a copy. Who is this A. Neneman? It's good stuff. Please say so for me to the editor, Mary Tryon. Sincerely, (Signed) E. K. Fretwell." 72 SHORE STUDENTS COUNCIL SHORE ANNUAL BOARD A Few Things Some of Us Would Like to Know Are Seniors considered full of wisdom by any one but themselves?

Shore 74 It Never Rains But It Pours ONE day during the Xmas vacation I decided to go fox hunting with my brother, as a few inches of snow had fallen the night before making good tracking. About seven o'clock we started. There were Mr. Dewey. Art and myself, beside the hound, Rover, in our party. When we reached the river we struck a trail. Rover cold-trailed it about two miles up the river, then we came to the place where the fox had been lying. He had gone just about five minutes ago by the way Rover bayed. Art took a course across the fields to an old cattle path where the fox would be pretty apt to run. Mr. Dewey took a course at right angles to Art's, to another run, and stationed himself about a half-mile from Art. I took a stand on a high piece of ground on the point where a creek entered the river. As I stood there I heard Rover run the fox upnver about three miles. Then he turned around and brought him back. I saw the fox come in sight over a ridge about a mile distant. About five minutes later the dog came after him. The fox was headed for Mr. Dewey. When he came in range Mr. Dewey shot — once — twice. The fox staggered a little but recovering, shot off at a tangent headed straight for Art, seemingly none the worse for being hit. Art shot once and missed, because the fox was too far away. The fox apparently startled, made a big circle, then headed for me. My eyes became misty and my knees began to shake because I was afraid that I would miss if he should come close enough for me to shoot. Then I raised my gun to get a line on him so that I would be ready to shoot when he did get close enough. When I got it up, lo and behold, it that gun didn't try to make circles as big as the moon! I couldn't make the thing hold steady. It kept going around and everytime it made an arc, that arc was larger than the one before. Then the supreme moment drew near. I tried to steady that gun but it wouldn't steady. The fox being in range I quickly decided to shoot. I shot. I missed that fox by a rod. With a few jumps Mr. Fox was over the bank. I recovered myself and headed for the river bottom. I tested the ice and since it seemed fairly strong I started across. I was nearly across, when without warning the ice broke and I went in. This dampened my ardor somewhat. I felt like going home. I reached the bank without further mishap and started to climb it, 1 had nearly reached the top after a great effort, when I heard a shot behind me. A voice yelled excitedly, "Hey you, there he goes. Get him." Forgetting caution I whirled about with my gun ready and called, " Where ?" No sooner had the words left my mouth than my feet flew up in the air and I started down the bank by rapid transit. Now this bank was about a hundred feet high and almost perpendicular, so I went a little faster than I cared to. I was near the bottom when I remembered the river. I put my gun out to stop myself by catching on a tree. Stop I did, and suddenly. My gun stock was broken and the barrel bent. I got up disgusted with foxes and the world in general. After more hard work I gained the top of the bank and went home. I refused to go fox hunting again. William Het.ick, E. H. S. '24 75 Sport's Destiny COMING home from school one day, little Billy Chester found a forlorn, disreputable-looking pup. It was very dirty and wore no collar. Billy brought him home to be company for "Laddie," Billy's big collie and "Brownie," a little fox-terrier who belonged to Billy's big sister, Elsie. But Mrs. Chester didn't think Brownie or Laddie needed any company and Billy was told to take the dog to the corner and run away from him. Sadly, the little fellow picked up the dog and started out the front door, where he encountered Elsie taking Brownie out for a walk. Jumping out of Billy's arms the dog began to romp and play with Brownie. "Oh, isn't he cute, Elsie, see there, they are friends already. Gee, I wisht Ma'd let me keep him. I'd call him Sport and — "William Chester where on earth did you get that dirty little brat?" Elsie cried in consternation. "Take the horrid pup away from my precious pet," she said as she picked up the unwilling Brownie. "Aw, gee, Sport ain't hurtin' Brownie any. Come on Sport, yuh Sport. See how well he minds me. He's a real pup and is better than your old hot- house dog anyway." said Billy scornfully, starting for the corner, followed by Sport. Upon reaching the corner, Billy shook hands with him and saying goodbye, ran off. That night Bilhe was sent to the store by his mother. Reaching the corner where he had abandoned Sport several hours ago, he was welcomed joyfully by him. "Why Sport," exclaimed the surprised little boy, "were you waiting for me? Why didn't you go away? I can't keep you." Sport followed him to the store and arriving home again made himself comfortable for the night on the Chesters' back porch. When Mr. Chester came home and discovered him there, Billy had to take him some distance away, drop him over a fence into some one's front yard and hurry home again. "Well I certainly hope we've seen the last of that horrid, horrid scamp," said Elsie. But the next morning when Mrs. Chester opened the back door, the first thing she saw was Sport. She tried in vain to chase him away with her broom. But he stayed away only until she had entered the house and closed the door, then he went back again. Then Elsie, starting down town with numerous Christmas parcels, letters and her black pocket-book, thrust him aside roughly with her foot and passed on. But persistent Sport followed her all the way- While she was downtown she lost her pocket-book which contained her wrist watch that she was taking to be fixed and her Christmas shopping money. While hunting distractedly here and there among the crowd for the purse, she lost Sport. Realizing how useless it was to hunt for the purse any longer in the crowd she walked sorrowfully home. Father was at work, Billy at school and Mother was dusting the furniture when Elsie arrived home. After telling Mother she sat in a chair by the window and soon she saw Sport come running up the steps. "Oh, that dirty pest is back again, Mother," she complained, but soon changed her tone to one of joy as the dog entered the open door and laid the lost purse at her feet. "Oh, you darling," she exclaimed, throwing her arms around his dirty neck. When Billy came home from school, a clean Sport with a fine, new collar greeted him joyfully. Elizabeth N. Ferguson, E. H.

There once was a girl named Eva, who sighed 'Cause she wanted her hair bobbed, so she cried, "Everyone's having it done So why can't I have the fun?" And she did — as Graduation drew nigh. There once was a boy who had wonderful art, His caricature drawings would give you a start, Now Albert was never inert, And folks otten called him expert Which term 1 hope never from him will depart. There once was a teacher beloved by all, Tho, in stature, we'll admit, she wasn't very tall, Miss Aingworth was her name, Toward all she was the same, And 'twas thus she won hearts — this teacher so small. There once was a girl with hair so curly, And folks all agreed her nature wasn't surly. Now in basketball Lucille excelled, With praise her audience swelled, And 'twas thus she gained a place on the team so early. There once were two Literary Societies at Shore High, And they were very literary, 'tis no lie. The Delphics and Shoronians by name And they tried to live up to the same. Long may they flourish in dear old Shore High. There once was a boy named Swipes, And he was one of the diving beauty types, For on the basketball floor you see He dived for the ball 'tween the other player's knees, And thus with this reputation he gained his stripes.

Did vou ever know Jim when the history Class came 'round, Knowing e'er a date of battle, or what Columbus found? Impossible! Did you ever see Ralph at school all day, Tending strictly to his work, and thinking naught of play? Impossible! Did vou ever hear of Irene putting in a whole day through, Without the closing of her eyes for a period or two? Impossible! 102 W. H.
