PUBLISHED BY SENIOR CLASS
EUCLID VILLAGE HIGH SCHOOLS
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
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
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.
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.

Tivxe — Ten years in the future.
Place — City of Euclid.
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."
for anything after this one. Hope
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
Prophetic Pictures (Cont.)
"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?"
"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
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
"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?"
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
"Well, Bill, let us in on the joke," George called
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.

have forty. At present I am teaching Art there."

"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
"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,
"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."
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
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
"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
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
"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
"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.
"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-
"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
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. N., '22.

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.

Sophomore Class History
WHEN we Sophomores of 1922 entered Shore High School we were
received with hearty welcome by the upper classmen, whose many ways
and great knowledge of things we were to observe for our own welfare.
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
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
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.

A Review of the Year
NOTHER year of educational absorption
has nearly passed and with a fairly good
result, considering the amount of red ink the
teachers have left for the next year. 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
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
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.

The History of the Freshman Class of Euclid
UR class started in on September 13, 1921,
with thirty pupils; thirteen of them pupils
that had graduated from the eighth grade
of E. 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.

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.

The Junior High
IF one doubts the efficacy of the Junior High or Six-Six plan, notice the
results shown by us this year. 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
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

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,
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!

Euclid-Shore Foot Ball Games
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-
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.

Here is good luck
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
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.

"Crocket" is the running guard of our Shore quintet and has been one
of the shining lights on the team all season. 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"
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.
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
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.

R is for right, our ruling command.
E means endeavor, which our tasks demand.
H for harmony, the aim of our School.

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 is a queer invention.
The High School gets the fame,
The printer gets the money,
And the staff gets all the blame.
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.
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.
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
Shore Girls Basket Ball Scores 1921-1922
EVA SMITH, Captain— Side Center
"Chuck," our side center, will leave us this year. 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
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.

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: —

The Radio Club
THE Euclid Radio Club was organized on January Twelfth, Nineteen
Hundred Twenty Two. 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
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.

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 black wings and scarlet breast
This is the bird I like the best.
When his blithesome notes he sings
Then it is a sign of spring.

This is the second year for the Glee Club in our High School. 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-
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."

Kathleen Hamilton, Stage Manag
The American Girl
Irene Waters, Librarian
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.
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,
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.

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
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
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.
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
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.
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
The art gallery was beautifully decorated with cupids, hearts and red
tulips. The guests, who proved themselves real patrons of art, numbered about
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.

The Sophomore Party
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
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.
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.
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.

Significance of the School Seal
OWING to the difficulties encountered each year in choosing a new design
for senior rings and pins Shore High School has adopted a permanent
seal. 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
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
(Signed) E. K. Fretwell."

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
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,"
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.

There once was a girl so athletic,
That she scarcely took time for a cosmetic,
But she got so much leaner
That folks called her "Weiner"
Which name to her ever will stick.
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.

It your car turns turtle make soup of it.
He owned a handsome touring car,
To ride in it was heaven,
He ran into some broken glass —
He took some friends out for a ride,
'Twas good to be alive,
The carburetor threw a fit —
He started on a little tour.
The finest sort of fun,
He stopped too quick and stripped his gears —
He took his wife downtown to shop
To save carfare was great;
He jammed into a lamp-post —
He spent about all that he had
And then in anguish cried,
"I'll put a mortgage on the house
And take just one more ride."
When We Plant The Tree
By Henry Abbey
What do we plant when we plant the tree 1
We plant the ship, that will cross the sea.
We plant the mast to carry the sails;
We plant the planks to withstand the gales—
The keel, the keelson and beam and knee:
We plant the ship when we plant the tree.
What do we plant when we plant the tree 7
We plant the house for you and me.
We plant the rafters, the shingles, the floors,
We plant the studding, the laths, the doors,
The beam and siding, all parts that be ;
We plant the house when we plant the tree.
What do we plant when we plant a tree?
A thousand things that we daily see ;
We plant the spire that out-towers the crag,
We plant the staff for our country's flag,
We plant the shade, from the hot sun free ;
We plant all these when we plant the tree.
