First Victory over Lisbon in 6 years.



Additional sports information for the time period Barnard and Berenice went to ELHS:









May 1912, A little before school let out for the summer Presidents visited East Liverpool.

Students were dismissed from school this day to see the Presidents. This is the "letter" President Taft wrote to the ELHS Students.

[Humor alert] As you can see by the pictures the 1911-12 team was a tad bit on the short side.

Barnard Steinfeld, looking much bigger and older is the one lying on the left. The above is a little more accurate depiction of the Varsity Basketball team. This picture was from Barnard's photo album. This is a sticky note in the front of the cover saying: Dad's Album. Barnard Steinfeld ELHS 1912.



We know by comparing the one basketball picture to the author's picture here that Barnard Steinfeld is the author of this written piece.



Berenice's nickname was Biddy or Bid.

Berenice is on the far right.

There were only two people in the class of 1912 with initials B.S. (Barnard Steinfeld) and B.T. (Berenice Thompson). With that information you can easily find them on the above list.

As can be seen above, Berenice was one of the authors of this list. Barnard would like one of those running for President this years based on his Mormon Goal. Berenice seemed to have more interesting goals. :o)

Joe Thompson, Berenice's oldest brother was a member of the Keramos Staff in the 1910-11 school year but we don't see his name among the members of that graduating class.

Berenice was on the Editorial Staff of the Keramos in the 1911-12 school year. She was the Local Editor.

Barnard Steinfeld was Valedictorian of the Class of 1912.
