Even as the flowers of the garden do bloom, and brighten the garden with their lender beauty and sweet breath of perfume, so do lives blos­ som in our midst which m ake our garden of life the s w e e te r, the richer, because of their influence. Such a life, rich, full, and beloved, we knew in Anna Johnson, her cheery smile, her kindly ways, her generous sympa­ thetic spirit, enriching the lives of those about her. B ut even as the flower, in the hour of full bloom, m ay fade and fall away, so may a life, tho' rich and fair and beloved, pass on from our m idst— as the Master wills. Yet, even as the Power is not gone when faded, but re­ m ains as the memory of what. It was, and as sweet perfume in the crushed petals, so shall this life of Anna's be tenderly held in our memories, and the sweet essence of her being be held as an Inspiration for our lives.

York College Sum m er School offers a valuable opportunity to all w ho desire to make the most of their time. It enables the busy teacher to liecome fam iliar with the problems of the day and it is a practical method of renewing a certificate. The sum m er session of 1922 was one w hich will never be forgotten by those who attended. The enrollment exceeded that of any previous year and included a large number of young people from neighboring towns who completed their Normal T raining W ork and are now teaching in different parts of the state. Dean Ashcraft was in his place a t the head of the faculty during the first four weeks of school, hut at the end of that time, joined his fam ily in California. Professor Noll attended the University of Chicago, but w ith these exceptions the regular faculty made up the teaching force. The work of Y. M. and Y. W. is carried on in Sum m er School, the latter being organized into an Eight Weeks' Club. The annual All-Day picnic is an event that is always anticipated and very much enjoyed. Even athletics is not forgotten in the summer, tennis being a popu足 lar sport. Under the hot afternoon sun students may be seen w orking hard at a game and in the cool o f the evening, the well-kept courts are scenes of activity. Duiring the last few weeks of the 1922 session, no little enthusiasm was shown over the Girls' Tennis Tournament. Beside the regular College and Academy Courses, Conservatory work and Art are offered. The latter departm ent has always been a very popular one and m any beautiful things have been created in water color, oil and china decoration. (Page F ifty-th ree)

B. C. PICNIC One fine day in the spring of 1922 Prof. Moore came upstairs and said he thought it was altogether too nice to stay indoors, so if we w anted we could have a picnic; you bet there weren't m any who did not w ant to go. So after noon a committee was dispatched to collect grub for a weiner roast, and about one o'clock we started out. We hiked to a pasture, east of town along the creek, and there pre足 pared to have our games. The first game, although it was played with a basketball, could hardly be called a basketball game, as it was j ust a mad scramble to see who could get the ball and hold it the longest. Several other games were played after which Abbott and G antz gave an exhibition of rough riding but it turned out to be rather smooth as the old nag tho ug ht she would rather eat grass than buck. About five thirty we built a camp fire and roasted the weiners and made coffee in a tin pall, and if anything ever tasted better we don't know w hat it Is, at least Prof. seemed to enjoy it from the am ount he ate, if he didn't need a doctor that night it certainly wasn't his fault. About dark we walked back to town, a pretty weary but happy bunch. By H. B.

KODAK HIKE Last fa ll the students of the Business College went on a kodak hike. One October afternoon most of the students, together with the teachers went to the park. The Kodak or Camera was the most im portant part of the event, although we students were the most striking features of the whole outing. In the first place we were very glad to have school dismissed at 2:30, so we could enjoy the brightness of the sun, in spite of the chilly breeze. that showered the fall leaves over the ground, and at times almost buried the very specimens we were trying to take. The Kodak caught the last glimpse of some of our members when they fell in a ditch and came out all bedecked with leaves. It was not only the leaves that got tangled though, no, the camera caught Gladys and Jam es "some w hat so." just in time to display their expertness on a negative which is now in clear print. H an zlick and Olsen were not satisfied to have their ability as monkeys displayed on the ground hut gave us a good exhibition of climbing in the trees. We all suggested indefinite numbers of poses until each one was snapped in his own favorite position. No one had the misfortune of falling into the creek, which was rather a disappointm ent in spite of the boys mischievous intents to over-balance some one while trying to cross the hanging bridge. Row ing was not popular because there was not enough "b o a t" to prevent one from falling into the gentle water, gurgling over the pebbles and rocky crevices below. So we explored and discovered until our films were exhausted and then hiked back to town declaring th a t we had spent a very enjoyable afternoon. By S. H . (Page F ifty -four)

W ith a desire to poke fun at the old gentlemen, the first freshie said: "H ello there. Father A braham . " The second said: "G ood morning, Father Isaac, " and the third sang out: " I greet thee, Father Jacob. " In gentle tones the aged servant of God replied: "I am neither Abra­ ham , nor Isaac, nor Jacob, but Saul, the son of Kish, who went forth to hu n t his father's asses; and behold, I have found them ." Prof. M. to Miss Vogel— Prices are com ing down rapidly nowadays. Miss Vogel— I wish I could say the same of weights. Lonesome Student— I don't believe I have a friend in the world. Needy Student Here's a chance to make one, Lend me five dollars. Jacobson to Baller— You must have had to pass a pretty stiff exam to qualify as instructor of English and Arithm etic? Baller— Well I was examined in psychology, integral calculus, m athe­ matical astronomy, polemic divinity, metaphysical analysis, and Greek, La tin , French and German. Jacobson— Holy Mackerel; what were you studying for? Ba ller— Infants teacher. Prof. M. going into Kroy Cafe "Waiter do you serve lobsters here?" W aiter--"Certainly, sit down, we serve anyone.

By the word Zeta we mean a society composed of two cieties which are an im portant part of York College life.

smaller so­

The Zetalathean society was organized at the same time as the brother society in the fail of 1914. Starting then as a small group they have steadily grown. The number of members have not only increased b ut they have completely furnished their hall. The purpose of the Zetalatheans is to promote good fellowship am ong the students, scholarship, social culture and the general improvement of its members. These purposes are carried out in the program s of the meet­ ings held every other Tuesday evening. The extempore is an interesting feature of each meeting and the members become more and more efficient in ability to speak without preparation. The programs are varied to in­ clude m any phases of life and to suit the talent of different members. To belong to literary society means a great deal. The hard w ork which is educational is combined with m any good times. One only has to mention the joint meetings, the annual Zeta Banquet and picnics to bring to mind of every member a num ber of pleasant memories and good times. The Zeta officers have shown unusual efficiency and originality in performing their duties. We were very sorry indeed to lose our Secretary, Miss A nna Johnson. Her loyalty and enthusiasm will long be remember­ ed in the Zeta Circle. Seven years have passed since Zeta was started and where are those to w hom she owes her gratitude? They have passed their school life and are in m any different professions and scattered far and wide. Zetalatheans— Zetagatheans Zetalatheans— Zetagatheans Here's to you, R a h ! R a h!

T H E SANDBURR The sandburrs that once grew on the campus disappeared long ago, yet there is still a living, thriving Sandburr a t York College that comes from the printing office and which contains some very sharp stickers un足 der the heading of "R u n 's. " This Sandburr, the bi-monthly publication of York College, was first Issued In 1900. Since th a t time m any students have had a part in issuing and m aintaining the paper up to the present time. The staff of this year w ith the cooperation of other students who have contributed m any good "write-ups" have succeeded in keeping up the high standard of the Sandburr. This m ay be judged by the m any re足 quests of other schools for exchange and by the financial status of the paper. Due doubtlessly to the untiring efforts of the capable editor-in-chief to put out an interesting paper and to the ability o f the energetic busi足 ness m anager in collecting ads, the Sandburr has more than paid for its publication this year. The surplus has been used for draperies in office and for cuts. This year, the room adjoining the library was fitted up for the "S andburr Office" and here the editor and business m anager held busi足 ness conferences with the staff. While the sandburrs were allowed to die because of their "sticking" characteristics, the Sandburr is bei ng carefully cultivated and we trust that its "stick in g" qualities will he as great as those of the plant from which it derived its name.

W eighth 163— '19, '20, '21, '22 — Fullback Baller is an old man at football. H e is a great line smasher and was always good for a gain. He could also circle the ends for long runs. W arren is a good m an on the defense and on the receiving end of passes. In short he is a good, all-round man.

CAP. A R CH IE MORGAN "A tchy"

This was "Cowie's" first year at football and he work­ ed out to be one of the best ends Y. C, has had for some time. Opponents were lucky if they got around his end. "Cow ie" Is good at smearing Interference and a good kicker and receiver of pas­ ses. He will make Y. C. a real end next year.

W eight 149— '21, '22 " Atchy" held down the piv­ ot position against all com petition. Morgan plays a good defensive game and is a te a r on the offense. His accurate passing was easily the feature of m any games. Morgan fought every m inute of tile game and never lost the opportunity to cheer his team on. He will be invaluable next year.

Don is a man whom we can rely upon next fall. H is every-ready willingness to give and take made him the kind of a man that was dreaded.

This being John's third year of football he was not green at the game and thus played his position as tackle w ithout a flaw. Shorty is a "vicious" tackier and always brought his opponent to the ground. He will be greatly missed next year as he also graduates this spring.

BARTUS BLANC W eight 155— '22— Guard Bart was a real whiz when it came to learning the fine points of the dainty pastime. His ripping and deadly tack­ ling made him loom up as one of the strong and mighty. This was his first year out for the coveted position to which he aspired.

This was Coffey's third year of football. He Is al­ ways like a stonewall when the enemy attacks his side of the line. Coffee liked to break up kicks and passes and Y. C. will lose a valuable m an when he graduates this spring.

"H u m py " came to us from Lexington H igh School, hav­ ing played on that eleven for two years as Quarterback and halfback. He proved to be a valuable man in Y. C. football circles. He was placed at quarter and held the position during the re­ m ainder of the season. K am el proved to bo a good passer and open field runner. H e was always there to put the old light into the team. He w ill be back next year.

GEORGE HALE "Sleepy" W eight 180— "22— Guard "Sleepy" will be a member of the cast for next year's performance. H is ability to tackle made him a man to be respected. Coaches, op­ ponents and spectators all looked alike to him and if they crossed his path, they were trampled.

Rex was the lightest man on the team this year but he played the gam e well from start to finish and is entitled to words of praise. He is a good t h in k e r : and he had no fear of the am ount of "beef" opposing h im . Lovers of football will miss him next year for he finishes his course this semester.

Joe came to us from York High school and was able to hold down the position of guard during the entire sea­ son. He gained his reputation for his power of endurence. As a marathon runner, Joe could easily w alk off with the brown derby. Due to injuries Joe did not parti­ cipate in all the games. He had the "ole fight" and never once was outplayed. He will be with us again next year. MYRVAN CANON "Spuds" W eight 143— '22— Guard Long, lean, "Spuds" made it a hard proposition for the boys on the first squad to hold their positions. H is only weakness is lack of ex­ perience and if he had an­ other year he would have no difficulty In landing a seat at the big table up in front.

"V onnie" could h it the line unusually well. "V onnie" was not able to get out and practice much, due to "pin k tea" obligations but he was a real buzz saw in the game. H e w ill be back next year.

B ill has lots of speed, zip and "do or die" spirit that is bound to win with perseverence. He is good every tim e for short gains and he w ill be a "speed m erchant" for the back field next year.

W hen the call was made for men out of which to develop a basket ball team, Coach Miller was confronted by his second formidable prob­ lem of the year. Only two varsity men from last year's team reported and though a good response was manifested by new men, inexperience is always a hard customer to deal with. York put up a game fight from the beginning to the end of the season and in no game were the Panthers badly outclassed, the end of the season finding a well trained quintet w orking together. Next year will find all of these men eligible for places and this fact encourages us to believe Y. C. will again see this squad— the next appearance being in the role of Winners. Those who won "Y s " on the York Court this season are Captain W alter Snedeker, Gilbert Deason, Irwin Caldwell, Donald Hale, Levi Loreman, Glen Campbell and R ay Conrad.

The pictures and the write-ups Are now at last all in. The "ads” are all collected, Proof-reading finished, too. W e see the finished product, Its faults, its merits, too; W e crave your tender mercies. W e’ve been merciful to you. And now our tasks are ended, Our duties all complete, W e’ve labored, oh how we've labored; Now our reward we've won. — THE STAFF.
