companied by Miss Grey Fetter who
skillfully manipulated the organ-
radiator. The services were very
impressive. So much so that

number of others, led by Miss Lu-

wailings and laments. The pall

Many strange sights are often seen
in and around G. H, S., but last
Monday a sight seldom witnessed
here was in plain view. The mem
bers of the second year Home Eco
nomics class put on their cleaning
togs and armed with dust rags, mops,
brooms and other cleaning imple
ments they invaded the teachers rest
room and there battled with dust
and dirt. Although this room is
well kept by the janitor, the class
has to take upon it’s self some pro
ject of this kind in connection with
their course of study. This was de
cided to be a good one.
There are many other things in
the school that might be renovated
by the class, but time prevents any
large project. One thing the class
is considering is the care of the
girls’ rest room which has recently
been fixed in the basement. The
girls are co-operating nicely witn
Miss Killingsworth in helping to fix.
and also to keep this room properly.
HOW SIS WON OUT
There was great excitement in
D. H. S. There was to be played the
last game of the season on the follow
ing dav with Ackton High for the
champi'dnship of the state. Football
was on everv tongue. _
The school was proud of its team
this year. It was a fine team and they
“It just simply can’t be beat, said
Tom Watson to Dick Norton.
“No sirree, we are going to lick
them off tlie fart of the ^eaa(tli. Just
watch and see it we don t, said Dick
as he slung his books on the desk.
“Ain’t that so. Sis? Tom said to
a boy who was sitting in the desk
across the aisle. .
Henry Hatcher, ofherwise knowi^
as Sis did not raise his eyes from the
book he was diligently studying as
he said rather precisely, lom, sure
^ “Hoprso, do you, Si«?” Mimicked
Dick in a way that brought a flush
to Henry’s fair face.
Henry was rather a heavy-set boy
though his hair was light and his
skin fair. He was very neat and clean
and parted his hair in the middle. In
fact he took so much care about his
personal appearance that the boys
considered him a dude and a Sissy.
He was a good pupil and stood at the
head of his class. He was not pop
ular and the boys made fun of him
and avoided him whenever possible.
In spite of all of this he was a good
football player and had been con
sidered for the team but only made
substitute much to the delight of all
“Let’s be sure and go to the final
practice this afternoon and see Beef
Church work out,” said Dick to Tom.
Church was the star halfback of
the school and everyone depended
upon him to win the game for them
on the morrow.
Sure,” said Tom, “I wouldn’t
miss it for anything.”
So after school the boys hurried
away to the gridiron. The practice
went well. Beef Church played better i
than ever until the last quarter when i
a scrub tackled him and he fell to the!
earth. When he got up it was found
that his arm was broken. The whole ^
school was crestfallen because there;
was no one to take the great Beef’s;
place except the much despised Sis. ' ■
The next day when the two teams
faced each other Sis was in the place |
of Beef Church. It was Ackton’s re-,
ceiver. The big fullback Wallace!
kicked the ball far down the field to;
a waiting half. The game was on. The'
field visitors put up some good inter-;
ference and the ball was on her forty |
yard line. D. H. S. line held and the
Ackton team did not make the neces
sary ten vards to gain another fiist
clown. , I
The game rocked on in this way |
until the second quarter when Ack-;
ton after a series of forward passes
put the ball on D. H. S.’ five yard
line. The big Ackton full took the]
ball and ran around the end into!
Henry’s territory, Henry lunged at
him and missed his tackle.The Ackton
supporters went wild for the victory
looked as if it were theirs. Ackton
failed to kick goal so the score stood
six to nothing in Ackton’s favor.
Henry felt like it was he who had
lost the game but resolved he would
try to make up for it. His opportunity
came in the fourth quarter. He was
(given the ball on the thirty yard line.
He ran around left end behind a
hastily formed interference. It took
all this interference to buck off the
end and the tackle. He sped down
the field like the wind. The Ackton
half was heading for him but Henry
knew he would have no trouble from
him. But the full and th» quarter
back were to be reckoned with. His
own guard lay down before the full
l)Ut the quarter was approaching him
He was now almost all in but
he could see the goalpost a little way
ahead of him. the quarter had al
most caught up with him and finally
he made a pretty tackle and threw
Henry. He was running so fast that
the impetus carried him across the
goal. When he got up it was found;
that the ball was six inches across
the goal. The whole grandstand
was a cheering mass of color. Hemy i
was decided upon to kick goal. He,
was somewhat groggy from the fall |

but he kicked the ball as hard as he
could although he had no idea where
it went because he had fainted away
in his captain’s arms. When he woke
up his first words were, “Did I get
it?” he asked.
Wallace replied, “I'll say you did.
