'SAG FLJASHLIGHT 5, IIlIIIlIIHH the Ellarultg An Apprrriatinn From the time we entered the Abilene High School four years ago to the time when we are about to leave her walls for a greater life, you have been with us, and in the days of misunderstanding and unhappiness you have always stood ready to comfort us and to put us in the right with your priceless advice. Although we might at the time have thought you unreasonable, we have come to the point where we realize that it was for our, benefit and our good that you took the steps you did. On the eve of our departure we have come to a full realization of the deep interest that you. took in moulding our characters and in training us to be better men and women, and to be citizens of the highest quality. To you, then, we wish to ex- tend our sincerest appreciation of your guidance. Your splendid examples of manhood and woman- hood, and your devotion to us in the time we have worked beneath your eye we will ever appreciate. May your guidance and your devotion come back to you intensified tenfold, yea, an hundredfold. 8 s . "H c Jn' ,V - lun lllllll r,-51.

IN MEMORIAM Alum Glramfill Stuhent-Zlirimh-Athlviv DIE D Srptemhrr 231-11. 1515. Alvin Cranhll, affectionately called L'Cran', was one of the finest and manliest fellows that High School has ever produced. He took a deep interest in athletics and al- ways stood for a clean, square game. He was never more at home than when on a football field. The hotter the contest grew, the oftener his dark eyes would light up with tl1e Hre of enthusiasm and the joy of the conflict, and many a score did he then add in 1918-l9l9 to the long list of A. H. S. victories. His kindness, courtesy, and sincerity won for him a place in every one's heart. ln his death, High School has lost a student who was universally loved and trusted. 12 fu ' rfii X ' Cree.. xl' lIIIIlIllIIII , -. .tt -illlllllllll ' 5 1 is X YA N ATHLCTICI P E 5 Q WAP llllllllllllliwf , Q 1 FLASHLIGHT si, CLhf71?fY1Zff f ll,-fLf9fg:,Qa, 0 S v - 55140 TIE!

It is because of his tenacity and his determination that he has made such short work of his high school years. The Mearnest-" ness that characterizes his study also pervades his spirit on the athletic field, where he has made a place that is entirely his own. "Ne'er smiled he or ever laughed aloud, For his thoughts were all full of seri- ousnessf, MARY B. HEARD Entered A. H. S. in 1919, from Naples High School. Senior Society. '20, Mary B. came to our class from Naples. If everyone in Naples is like Mary B. we wish there could have been more to join our class. She is happy and witty. We wonder what the Tennis Club would have done without her as manager. She is just as good a champion in making friends as in tennis.

It is rumored that he will compete with Mr. Went- worth in writing algebras and geometries.

"Kind worrls he ever hurl for ull." l.0T'l'IE ROE GREEN Lottie Roe has a most elusive sort of charm. She possesses the romantic poet's combination of a delicate complexion, golden hair and hlue eyes and the transparent delicacy of a piece of Dresden china. She moves about with a'sedate primness and dignity that re- minds one of curtsies and powdered curls.

Edna is one of the most versatile of the Seniorsg she has a good voice, is a good reader, and is an athletic enthusiast. She has been told so often that she looks like Norma Talmadge, that we fear she will choose the screen as her future career. She is, indeed, a modern girl, for she wishes to make a name for herself instead of taking someone else's.

He never speaks out in study hall or raises any protest when elected to an ollice, as that of yell leader. In fact his voice is seldom heard except when raised in sweetest melody. Possibly the rea- son of his quiet and sober demeanor is that he is meditating on his future serious occu- pation, which is to be surgery.

Elenor is jolly and likes to have her part of the fun.

'20, Edward is always trying to hide his light under a basket, but the Seniors have found him out. He does a good many things for the "other fellow" and we have learned to appre- ciate him.

However, despite his shyness, we should look long be- fore we found a manlier fellow or a more courteous gentleman than Theron. "I was born to love." FRANCES COMPTON lintered A. H. S. in 1916.

Frances may he most dependable of charac- ter but not so of physique. Her unruly ap- pendix and her chances for the valedictory were hoth removed at the same time. She is one of the most brilliant of the Senior Stars, especially on festive nights when she trips the light fantastic toe. She is particu- larly fond of bugs and worms, and music, and will probably specialize in one of these. "Oh.' she was good and she was fair, None-notre on earth above her!" ki 27 .

When she thinks "Nobody Knows and Nobody Seems to Caref' she talks of teaching school, but we think she is more apt to apply her domestic science knowledge to home-making.

Samuel is a gentleman, with a manly yet tender thoughtfulness that makes him a favorite. "Sam's" delicacy and success in meeting the ladies and in getting along with them is the envy of his good friend, Edwin Chambers. "He was the noblest Roman of them all." AMELIA LOWRY Entered A. H.

"What do you want of Napoleon?" and the great man himself stood before me. "Put away your books. History is all bosh! The future is what you need. Had I known less history and more about the future, do your think I should have been banished to St. Helena?,' The great general was getting excited, I thought it best to agree with him. He seemed pleased. "Well, then, look into this," he said, drawing his hand from its accus- tomed place across his breast, and thrusting it deep into his pocket. He brought out a large crystal ball. "There!" he exclaimed triumphantly, "look! Yourself and your class two years from now. To most classes this vision of the future is allowed in their senior year, to this class, be- cause of its many talents, its unusual wisdom and superior judgment, the vision comes this year, and still another vision two years from now." I looked. I rubbed my eyes and looked again and lo! Edgar Good- night, our efficient Freshman and Sophomore president, was leading a procession of triumphant High School Seniors. On his back was :1 placard bearing the words "Honest Abef' "But why the sign?" I asked. 4'Oh, he is the one student who always takes the demerits rather than not tell the truth about his being absent." Then followed a crowd of cheering athletes. Stewart Noland, the football captain, had been separated from Edwin, Derrel, Claude, Derbert, and Will, the other champions. Throngs of girls, most of whom I did not have time to recognize, were crowding about our handsome hero. With his usual indifference to admiration, he was attempting to complete a "forward pass" and escape. The crystal turned and when I looked again, I saw Charles Moore, famed in our Sophomore class for his leadership and scholarly habits. Charles and the group about him wore stars on purple crowns. The great general told me this group was made up of those whose names could be on histories scroll of fame, even by the side of his own. Close behind Charles tripping to her own music, made from a tennis racket. came Bertha, at her side came Lois, chattering in Allegro time, her usual accompaniment to Bertha's music. Mary Douthit nd Albert May, is undisturbed by this moving throng as they used to be undisturbed by class recitation in Sophomore days were serenely creating more art to be added to the world's meager collection. "But who is this slender, serious-looking boy, singing mournful dirges, wearing a note book about his neck, and carrying a pencil in one hand and a violin in the other?', "Clayton Holmes," my companion whispered, "this is what writing poems, singing in choral club, playing in an orchestra, and hard studying have done to himf' S l l lx 'N , 'l!I I ki 62 E ' X L. ,in f'?Z ,- ,, S f J if I "' - W -glullnuuis ,L L igguunlunle w e V N xx I S, t I WAP QlIIIlIIIIIIIIif? 2,3 FIJASHDIGHT QQQIIIIIIIIIIIIII CCONTINUEDD Xl nllulllnllnl li Wearily he passed on and, in stately steps, followed those students weighed down by the dignity of the many honors they have received for N scholarship, ability in music, expression, and dramatic work. There l , were Lota Clyde, Howard Creekmore, Mae Holt, Murrell Sayles, Fay Mitchell, Dorothy Wright, and sure enough, Arthur Williams, still work- 'ly ing on that composition book in Caesar, which he began in his Sophomore i, year, I was so busy watching Harrell Trantham, impersonating an X impatient woman, that a large number of our class celebrities slipped by without my taking full note of them. f M attention was next drawn to a lonely figure. Y l l V A l "He was finally persuaded to leave Montgomery's long enough to join in this procession, but, consistent with his nature, he could not be induced to join any group made up of girls." Napoleon was pointing to the lonely figure, which I had no difficulty in recognizing as that of Stuart Wagstaff. Near him was Gray Brown, appropriate for such a drab and somber scene. "Did you notice the shaved head of Bengy Wiltshire?" the ex-Emperor asked. His mother advised him to do that. It seems that during his Sop- homore year he was subject to some violence by a member of the History Department. He has adopted the policy of preparedness since then." "But this group cominglv I exclimed, Edward Duke, Alpin Dodson, Joe Dawley, Oran Shackleford, Prentive Mayfield, Carland Oliver, yes, and Aubery Brooks and J. C. Burkett, why are they all looking so solemn and pious?" "Pious is right," said Napoleon, "Do you notice that each one is carry- ing a Bible under his arm? They are all planning to enter the ministry." My surprise was suddenly checked by what appeared to be a family row going on behind this ministerial group. "Those two do that all the time," the great general said, showing a rising in his voice. I looked more closely and behold! Douglas McCauley and Ruth Will- iamson violently quarreling over a mirror, a comb, and a powder puff. Pete Olds, following close behind was, according to his usual custom, at- tempting to heap upon the struggling couple his timely suggestions and lengthly adivce. Mary Jo Payne,, walking quietly nearby, was offering an excellent example of the beauties of peace. The hand that held the crystal bell began to shake. Far as I could see in the distance my class-mates were still coming, but their faces were indistinguishable, the whole sphere was getting to be a blurred mass. Suddenly the crystal ball rolled from the great general's hand and crashed to the floor. "I am exceedingly sorry," he exclaimed, "but after my past experiences such things always upset me. l cannot stand vanity and quarrels, I am a lover of truth and peace." The great general's hand went back to its accustomed place across his breast. "Two years from now!', And he has gone. The vision was over.

As the revenue tax on the athletic games of the previous year almost exhausted the money in the treasury, the Association began the sale of season tickets and soon there were sufficient funds ac- cumulated to provide for the maintenance of athletics during the year 1920. Football, basketball, tennis, and volley ball became popular during the fall and winter months. In the spring the baseball season was opened with the National-American game. Special tickets were solgl for this game and quite enough money was realized to put the organization on a firm financial basis for next year. With money in the treasury, and with the enthusiastic support of every loyal High School boy and girl, the Athletic Association now stands in order and faces the future with confidence. 84 X' x'l it ' f.,aIIIIIIIIlIl 'Zigi' .gs T af f - -x X X 1 l N S l N it l ll 3 F Ii S IE V A .

S. has never seen a more ef- ficient leader. He knows his men and how to handle them to the best advantage. He is liked by all his team mates and is the idol of the students. In refusing to give up, his perseverence inspired the team to win more than once. He was chosen captain for 1920 and it is hoped that he will again lead the team to victory. EDWARD MURPHY "Pat" is our Irish quartet'-back. He is a de- mon on the running pass and is a fine open field runner. Murphy can't play football until his Irish spirit is aroused and that is always when the game is young. Everyone expects lvig things from "Pat" next year. CLYDE WAGNER Wag was a late comer to the A. H. S. grid- iron but he made good and plays full-back. His chief delight is to get the ball and hit the line with all that is in him, and if any op- ponent connects with his high stepping legs he usuallv notices a dislocation. Wagner graduated this year and he will make good on some college team. A LFRED HOWARD "Chick" is our famous dropkicker and right half. He has an educated toe that few High School players possess. He plays for the pure love of the game. .lust after the season was finished he was called home to Dallas and was unable to remain with us. 87 .tint .ina ,..., .

There are very few plays that he is not into, exactly right. Few passes are completed from his de- fensive side. As the coach expressed it, he is the team's alibi. He is a Senior and leaves us this year. DER RELL DOUGLAS 'iDursal" gained his nick-name through a local newspaper printing an account of his brilliant playing. He is a substitute half- hack. He is the fastest man on the team and when he is given the ball it takes a flyer to catch him. He will be back to guard our title next year. FRED HARKRIDER "Fred" plays left end and a fine game he plays. He is a good steady man and one whom his opponents are much perplexed as how to attack. We hope to have him with us next year. s'Sellers" is a little man but a loud one. He plays right end and is very aggressive. All he has is in every play and he plays foot- ball frum the first whistle to the last. He rarely ever loses his temper and his oppon- ent is at loss to know how to hit him. His opponents must be extraordinarily alert to escape Sellers attack. Sellers will fight again next year. f l E 88 E - ix D X siifv .Q 414.1 2 Tllllllllllllla. my S 15? , Sf ,fy F 's fone HIlMIllKf4 ?253 FLASH LIGI-IT fs . gllllllll CLAUDE GENTRY "Big Beef" is the heaviest man on the team, out weighing the full-hack by two or three pounds. He runs from the position of left tackle. He has a question after every game and sometimes he seems to he afraid that he may hurt his opponent. Gentry has another year in High School and he will be a demon next year. GEORGE PAXTON "George" plays our right tackle and to find a better man would be a problem. He is "heady" and very aggressive. He is a light man but one who plays hard for the School and the School's honor, never thinking of his personal interests. Paxton graduates this year. VOLANDIS GOSS Joe holds down the position of left guard md he holds it, too. He is a fighter, pure and simple if you can arouse him to that point, and usually in the game he becomes suffi- ciently aroused. He fights hard and ever- lastmgly He has another year in A. H. S.

He is a little man, only fifteen years old, but he does not let that hinder him. His willingness and ability won him a place on the team.

One cause for this disappointing fact in our program is this: no match game could be secured until October 17th. There were, however, six match games, of which number only one was lost and two tied. Our team was really a championship team and our failure to secure the West Texas Championship is due largely to the fact that the last game was played on the Plainview field and the snow was so deep that it would have taken an Eskimo team to defeat them. The season opened with the annual Army-Navy football game. Much enthus- iasm was shown by the student body, as this was the contest which decided the players on the first team. Both' sides fought hard and at the end of the fourth quarter the score stood 12-12. The first match game was played with our old enemy, Stamford, at Abilene. We were very proud of our new men and they did not disappoint us, for the game closed without a score for either side. The stars in this game were Howard, Sellers, Dilling- ham, and Goss. Our next game was played with Coleman on the A. H. S. gridiron. Her team did fine work for their size, but they were outclassed from the beginning by our boys. Sellers starred on the defensive, Douglas in line playing and end runs, Roberts and Howard, in breaking up forward passes and end runs. Our hardest fought game was the second contest with Stamford at Stamford. Until the last two minutes of the game the score stood in favor of Stamford, but Sellers received a pass and made the winning touchdown. The Abilene stars in this game were Murphy, Howard, and Dillingham. The line men also did splendid work. Our fourth game was played with Haskell on the latter's gridiron. The ground was very muddy but the A. H. S. team swam through the contest. The score was 0-0. This was the second tie game of the season. Our fifth game, with Merkel, was played on their grounds. The weather was very disagreeable and the ground slippery but our team easily defeated them. The final score was 4-0-6. The last game of the season was played with Plainview, at Plainview. The game was scheduled for Thanksgiving day, but on account of the heavy snow, was postponed until the following day. Even then the snow was so deep that none of the yard lines could be seen. Our touchdown made by Mat Dillingham was disputed, and rather than cause a scene, our boys manfully accepted the decision of the Plain- view refree. At the close of the game the score stood 7-3 in favor of Plainview. The whole team did effective work and it would be hard to select one man who played better than another, but if stars were selected, they would be Dillingham, Murphy, and Howard. Howard made the only score on Plainview during the season when he kicked a field goal and gave us three points. We offered to meet Plainview again, either in Abilene or on a neutral gridiron, with neutral officials, but she refused. At Plain- view, Dillingham played the most brilliant game of his career. This is the first game in two years that A. H. S. has been defeated in foot-ball. The team, the coach, and many of the Plainview enthusiasts feel that it was really our victory.

IIIIIlIlIIlIlL X L Mugs Basket Ball The first game of the season was played with Clyde. As the first games of the season us- ually end, we lost, due to the lack of practice and confidence. The game was full of clean playing on both sides which offset the defeat. ' The second team of the A. H. S. played the A. C. C. five, and won a victory over them. The game was very easy and all sixteen of our men were used. The third game was played with the Army team which was playing in the interest of re- cruiting. The game wasn't as easily won as the soldiers had anticipated, for our boys fought hard during the game and made their opponents work hard for all the points they got. Our boys made a trip to Potosi to play that bunch of corn-fed huskies and had a good time even if the game was lost. The A. H. S. team was playing against odds but showed excellent form despite this fact. A return game with Clyde was arranged and the consequence was that Clyde lost. This made the victories equal, and the tie had to be played off On the same day that the second game with Clyde was played another team of the A. H. S. players defeated a team from Caps. After Caps' weak spot was found, the victory was compara- tively easy. A game was arranged with Clyde to play off the tie between the two schools and the result was a victory for Clyde. Our boys fought hard but could not win. The Clyde team won fairly, and we do not begrudge them the victory, although it hurt us to lose the game. The second team of the A. H. S. again played the A. C. C. team and again defeated them. gfhe coach used a large part of the squad in this game, as there was at no time any danger of de- Cal. The Merkel five came down to Abilene with rooters galore to win from us, and they did win by a small margin of three points. Although our boys fought like demons the game was lost. At the end of the first half the score looked favorable for us, but the second half told a different story. , A. H. S. boys rode to Clyde for a final game with them and were defeated-in score. They are resolved to win next year. The final game of the season was played with the Tuscola High and lost by three points. The game was full of pep from the first whistle to the last. This ended what is considered as a very excellent season. Girlz Basket Ball 'l he first game of the season was played with North Park on February the second. The A. H. S. girls showed much pep and fight throughout the game but their lack of practice told on them and they were defeated in points but not in spirit. The A. H. S. girls played the Clyde High at Clyde in the second game of the season. The game was characterized by hard playing on both sides and individual stars were lacking as the whole team starred in the game. Much to the delight of the A. H. S. fans, we won. For the third game of the season, the Clyde girls came to Abilene with blood in their eyes to wipe away the stain of defeat that was left by our girls in the previous game. The plays were fast and furious and the whistle blew frequently. At the end of the allotted time the girls of the A. H. S. had added another 'victory to their string. Elrark Due to the early completion of this book, the track and baseball games were ommitted with the exception of the annual class track meet, the winner of which has the privilege of engraving the class name on the Campbell Trophy Cup. There was much interest shown in the contest, and rivalry ran high between the classes. The athletes were well matched and the championship swayed back and forth until the close of the last day of the meet. The Seniors finally won the meet with a total of forty-nine and a half points. The .luniors ran a close second with a total of forty-eight points. The Sophomores took third place and the Freshmen took fourth place. This is the third successive year that the Seniors have taken the meet. Who will get it next year? Let us watch, and wait, and see. up X Q2 fl' "et J g , .t lIIIIlIIIIlII Q6 jjfi 3 - ZIIIIIIIIIIII H .

C o SETTE HEMBREE The girls of the Senior Class met early in September 1919 and organized the Senior Star Society with Bessie Mae Sides as president and Cosette Hembree as secre- tary. The motto, "Hitch Your Wagon to a Star," was adopted. The sweet pea was chosen as the flower, and the colors lavender, pink and white, were selected to match. The object of this society has been to develop a deeper interest among the Senior girls in both literary and social events. As a result of this organization, sev- eral good programs have been given before the Study Hall, and a finer feeling of friendship has been fostered among the girls of Abilene High School. 1 lIIIIlIlIIII , an K X fm 4flllllllllll 6 .-: 105 E 3 : .- " f N E , , 1 K SYVI.

This class was organized by Mrs. X S Dallas Scarborough, Chairman of the Committee of Nursing Acti- R vities, and Mrs. Van Ness Lewis, of the Local Red Cross Chapter. t lu The course consists of fifteen lectures of one and one-half hours q if each, and fifteen practical demonstrations of the same length, the N former being given by Miss Dunwoodie Burges of the Home Eco- it nomic department of the High School, the latter being given by fy 5 Miss Amason of Hollis Sanitarium. Having in mind the fact that preventable diseases take a greater l, A W toll of life than war, stress was laid not only on the care of the sick N xx in their own homes but also on personal hygiene, household sani- JX tation, causes, symptoms and prevention of contagious and minor U, 'Q illnesses. This instruction will enable these girls to meet their in- 'fx evitable duties with increased understanding and usefulness. Fifty thousand women are said to have availed themselves of similar instruction in 1918 under the direction of the American vf ll, Red Cross and many times that number the year just ended. This ,tl 7' work, Elementary Hygiene and Home Care of the Sick, has the ap- 1' y' X proval of Miss Blanton, State Superintendent of Education, and is A now being taught in all schools and colleges wherever practical.

He decided to go to Colonel Howard, an old friend of Mr. Johnson, for ad- 1 vice. Arriving at the Colonel's home, he found another young man who had come for the same advice. This young man was introduced as John Williams. "Well, boys," said the Colonel, "I suggest the Army for both of you. The Army , offers a sure cure for those pale, tired looks of yours. After a physical examination, immediate steps are taken to make you well and strong-not only by medical aid, but N: by good exercise, out-door life, regular habits, pure food, and sanitary conditions ' of living. The boys who enlisted in 1917 are a good example of what this life ac- T complishesf' I John asked about completing his education. "Since the armistice, the Army has become a regular University. In the fourteen branches, men are taught those things necessary to that line of work. Let's see, John wants to be a civil engineer and Allen, a doctor. Is that right boys? X "An excellent opportunity is open to both of you in the army. Allen, in the medical corps you can learn more by actual experience in a shorter time than you can in civil life. The laboratories are modern and well-equipped. John, the Engineers Corps is open to you. You boys, with your educations should do fine-some boys come lo us who can't even read. N y "The big point about the Army education is that you earn while you learn. Your salaries do not sound comparatively high, but it is all clear spending money, for your food, board, clothes, and education are free. You can really save more fm than you could in civil life. "The Army is a good place to acquire the habit of thrift, Allen. There, to spend i your money becomes a problem. As to instruction in self-control and obedience, the 5 Army is unexcelled. "The thing that really counts is oneis ability as a leader: In the Army, you are associated with men who know how to give and receive orders. From them you learn the art of leadership. Both boys took the colonel's advice. The next year they all met again. "The Army's a man's life. l went in feeling like a boy, now I feel like a man. l'm really completing my Doctor's education," said Allen. "The Army's the only life for making a man. My companions are men who A have some out-look in life. I am stronger both mentally and physically. Your A advice was invaluablef, John agreed. ki 113 E .X-sux. A A sf xv?

Her home was at Ranger, Texas. Her mother and father died and left her only a small plot of ground and no money. What was she to do? Her grandmother offered to share her home with her, but rather grudgingly. Mary Ann came to live with her, however, and started to school. She was a senior in A. H. S. and she soon made a place for herself in spite of her rather shabby clothes and her lack of money. Her last year was almost half over when she heard of "The F lashlightf' The High School annual contained many happy memories for her and she did want one, so badly. The pictures that had been taken "Senior-Day" were all to be in it and the pictures of all the students, accounts of the ball games and entertain- ments, stories, poems, and jokes, but her grandmother positively refused to give her three dollars for "sech foolishnessf' One week-end Mary Ann went back to Ranger to visit a friend, and while she was there a man persuaded her to lease her land for a good sum. She was afraid to, because her grandmother always said that she did not want their land full of holes and then get nothing for it. "More than likely our land is done drained and they jest want to beat us out of somethin'," her grandmother had always said. But Mary Ann dared to lease it, despite this fact. She lived in perfect misery the next few days and in geometry, at school, instead of seeing triangles she saw oil derricks and in place of circles she saw oil wells. One day she received a letter from the agent at Ranger saying that they had struck oil, and that he would write her later giving her the particulars. How was Mary Ann to break the news to her grandmother? Another letter came which read as follows: "We have struck a 9000 barrel well-a gusher on the place. lnclosed find a check for 31,000 which is your first payment. Another will follow in a few days." Mary Ann knew she'd never dare tell her grandmother, so one day she left the letter in full view of the old woman's eye. When she came in from school her grandmother said: "Mary Ann, what have you done? Where is the thousand dollars? ls it really ours?7' These questions were fully explained and in the old woman's joy at knowing that they were to be poor no longer, she forgot to scold the poor girl but instead said: "Well, what are you going to buy first?" HA '6Fla.shlight,? Mary Ann joyously replied. l l l l 'N 'Q l N N lx, ki 114 g - - ' .

There is no use trying. They mean well, l suppose, but they act more like a crowd of young heathens than anything I know of." Pretty Miss Lester paused for breath, all unconscious of the lovely color flooding her face as she stood looking at Mr. Pickup, the Principal of the High School. "That is my opinion exactly," said Mr. Pickup. "The seniors must certainly he reprimanded, or they will break every rule we have. Who seems to be leading them anyway?" He reached for paper and pencil, and looked inquiringly at Miss Lester. "Oh, they are not so bad, really, and they are all to blame. But if you would just speak lo Anne Ophelia and Allan they might influence the rest of the class. l've given them demerits until I am just sick of it." Miss Lester turned to go. "l shall see them this afternoon," said the principal reassuringly. It seemed very nice, some how, to be able to reassure Miss Lester. "All right, Mr. Pickup, but please don't-scold." The blue eyes of the teacher were appeal- ing and very lovely as she looked again at Mr. Pickup, and he was extremely irritated to find him- self promising to deal gently with the offending seniors. "She had no business to use her eyes like that, or to smile at me in that way," said the principal to the trim, departing back of Miss Lester. "A young school teacher should he serious. I shall mention that fact at the next teacher's meeting." He turned to his work with a satisfied expression on his face, not dreaming that a quarrel on the tennis court, in progress at that very moment, was destined to upset a few of his pet theories. Anne Ophelia and Allan Graham were playing opposite each other. They knew the game well, and it was a hot contest. They had played down to three deuce when Allan awkwardly missed a ball, and turned the set in the girl's favor. Anne Ophelia threw her racket on the ground and gave it a vicious little kick that sent it spinning half way across the court. "You are a cheat, Allan, and l shall not play another game," she cried angrily. "Why, Anne-" The boy was plainly distressed and puzzled. "My name is Anne Ophelia. You are a cheat," she repeated. A curious, sympathetic crowd collected around them both, but the bell rang just in time to prevent a peaceful settlement, or even an explanation. The two seniors who had caused the excitement were obliged to march up to study hall, glaring at each other like angry kittens, each resolved to scratch the other at any cost. It was this that started the trouble. Time after time Allan tried to catch the attenion of Anne Ophelia, and just as many times was communication cruelly interrupted hy a teacher, in study hall, in the Physics class, on the stairway, and finally in the lower hall just in front of Mr. Pickup's office. And for each and every offence the penalty was five demerits. It was appallingg the news went the rounds of the senior class, and suspense hung in the air. "They will be expelled, and the year's work ruined." Thus the whisper floated, and Allan and Anne Ophelia knew well what it meant. They looked vera' siriaus indeed when the last bell had rung, and for some reason they both lingered in the stu y a . Anne Ophelia- was slowly gathering up her books, and she refused to look at Allan who stood near the door, cap in hand. Allan was still angry. He would not speak firstg he intended to stand up like a man and a gentleman and a senior for his rights. No girl, not even Anne, could call him a cheat. No, sirg she had to explain. But since she showed no intention of doing so, Allan went down stairs with much dignity and joined half-heartedly in a game of ball on the playground. ,Left alone in the study hall, Anne Ophelia lifted a serious face. "Five, ten, fifteen, twenty," she said, counting them on her fingers. "lt isn't right. I'm crtainly in for it now." She gathered up her books and went downstairs with lagging steps that led her straight to Mr. Pickup's office. i 1 X .l l if o F f 6 -i ' L E 115 E E XQKQNXQQ '-' -svv lv' T 'Z 'ff' f- Al -f ' E mllisllliiini ,:-s -Tess? ms- a lllllIllllllE 1 ,j'.,,9 wx I .

Sit down he commanded, and Anne Ophelia thankfully il i V A, l 5 l dropped into the nearest chair. Mr. Pickup laid his pen down carefully and swung around facing her To the guilty senior his look was terrible. She felt a wild desire to flee but she was six feet from the door, and it was no use' she would never make it. She heard a weak little voice address- ing Mr. Pickup. "About those demerits?" said the voice. "I-i' "You deserve them-every one," snapped Mr. Pickup. "Of course I do," flared Anne Ophelia, 'ibut Allan doesn't deserve the ones he got. It was all my fault. I called him a cheat on the tennis court. But he really isn't a cheat, he was just trying to give me a point because I'm a girl. You ought to give me those demeritsg won't you- please?" Anne Ophelia was pleading now. She had forgotten her fear, and there was something in her manner that made Mr. Pickup think of Miss Lester. It upset him considerably just at that moment, and he found himself floundering and losing his dignity. "I-you-I shall look into this matter," he said. "You may go." He waved the girl out of the office and closed the door. He was in a panic, he had meant to pretend severity, at least. He would have succeeded if the child had not brazenly imitated Miss Lester. It was a problem- that imitation. Mr. Pickup considered it from several angles, trying to decide whether it was the glint of gold in Anne Ophelia's hair, or the blue of her eyes, or the innocent charm of her smile that had tricked him. Certainly, it was odd, very odd. It puzzled Mr. Pickup, and he wiped his face with his handkerchief. rwxe g Illilllllllis' Q FLASHLIGHT NQIIIIIIIIIIIIIII Outside the office, Anne Ophelia stood still a moment, caught her breath sharply, and went upstairs for a notebook. She had been gone but a second when a boy came striding up to the office door. It was Allan Graham, and he opened the door bravely and looked in. Mr. Pickup's face was very stern as he motioned the boy to a seat. "What is it, Allan?" "Its those demerits, sir." Allan gulped down a lump that persisted in rising in his throat. "You probably deserve more than you got," said Mr. Pickup, unsympathetically. "Yes, sir. I'm sure I did, because I caused Anne to get some, toog and she didn't deserve them. She ought not to be expelled. lt won,t hurt me, but girls are different. We've got to treat 'em nice when they get old enough to he seniors, and ask 'em to go places-and, oh, you know, Mr. Pickup. You just can't expel a girl. Why, Anne's a--a humdingerf' Allan stopped and thoughtfully considered the toes of his shoes. He was not a senior now, he was a small boyg and Mr. Pickup liked small boys. "Well, Allan, what do you think can be done? I can't break a precedentg the demerits must standf, "It ain't right, anyhow. She didn't do anything, and you canit treat a girl that way. A girl is worth a lot more than a precedent, ain't she?" The boy's face was flushed with the light of a vision, and he did not see the amazement in Mr. Pickup's eyes. The principal had not had time to pay any attention to girls while he was acquiring his education, and here was a "kid," a senior, a heathen, telling him things that he had not thought of before. "I guess both of you will have one more chance," he managed to say at last, and Allar. bounded joyously out of the office. Mr. Pickup saw him pause at the foot of the stairs. "Oh, I thought you had gone? Anne Ophelia came down the steps, and Allan reached for her notebook and tucked it under his arm. uTh 7 ' h 4D 9 h s s - I 999 ey re going to ave oug at t e Queen tonight. Want to go. said Allan. "You bet! Eight o'clock all right?" They passed slowly out of sight, voicing resolutions to be good in school until the end of the term, and Mr. Pickup smiled. He was still smiling when he took up the telephone and asked for connection with 961. "Miss Lester?" His voice then dropped so low that no one save the pretty teacher could possibly have heard it. "Why certainly, Mr. Pickup. I shall be delighted.

Where are the girls who used to smile and the rides I used to get, X And where is the crowd that was so proud to pass me a cigarette? Time was when I danced with the maidens fair and captural hearts by storm, But I've lost my pull with the beautiful since quitting the uniform. I've sunk my shoes in Turkish rugs that only the rich can own, At the tables fine, I've been asked to dine, In the heart of the social zone. In the cushions deep of a limousine I have rested my manly form, But I've lost my graft with the tony craft, since quitting the uniform I've been a king on the ballroom floor, an ace in the social whirl, I could show my face in any old place, And never a lip would curl. I could walk right up to a rich man's door, and be sure of a welcome warm, But I've changed a lot and they know me not, Since quitting the uniform. Now I walk downtown, and the autos pass, And nobody says, "Get inf, And the girls are shy, when I'm standing by And give me the tilted chin, And nobody knows and nobody cares, whether I eat or how, I must buy my chuck, for I,m out of luck, I'm wearing the 6'civies" now.-Corporal John Pore. lt X 2 X tl it I N g 126 E - if QQX ' Tl' 'Zi :f if 7 ' - WlIIIlIIIIIllI - EfQ -f' 1 g:jfa.m ' llllllllllll A f fs x Xi x I . sf glIlllllllllllllllllllllllIIllIlIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlllIlllIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIlllllIlIIIIlllllllIIIIIlIlIlllIlIlllllllllllllllllllllg 2 OUR FRIENDS.
