FLJASHLIGHT 5, IIlIIIlIIHH
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.

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.

Ernest, though very modest and unobtrusive,
is dependable, serious of purpose, and per-
severing. 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.

Lonnie was ruled out on account of his age,
hut it gained a live booster.

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.
"The pure, the beautiful, the bright,
Stirrvd in her heart so true."

Edwin, who was voted the most conceited
boy in High School was grossly slanderedg
for we all know that he is one of the most
quiet and effacing of boys. 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.

of the fact that rules and judges change, thanks to l
Munden, our well trained chauffeur, we can manage ij
to slide along with facility. 9
But upon turning the corner into the little vil-
lage of Sophomore, we skid, lose our faithful X.
driver, and also leave some passengers behind.
5 Again the rules and judges change. But with
a new license, and under the excellent leadership
i of a gallant 4'lVlagor,7' we dash into Junior town,
K losing our "Dimmers,,' and so, our brilliant "head
lights" having been turned on, the road is made
X clear to Senior city.

Of which the High School should be proud.
To carry our part has been our aim,
And rest assured we have done the same.
Ig X Oh, Juniors are we, and a jolly crowd.
In geometry we deal with triangles and such,
And hold our head high and say, "T aint much,"
We hold the honor of the funior class
To a height we are sure none others surpass.
In history we worry and study hard
On all the wars of King James and King Georgeg
And in literature we shine like a golden star
And our records have reached out near and far.
In science we go right in to win
And stop at the place where the Seniors begin,
Yet better records we funiors will make
Than the Seniors do in the subject they take.
In foreign languages we never shirk ' JT,
Although to pass we have to work, V
But the teachers are such as you seldom see, k
Willing to help both you and me.
l When toil is ended for our class,
We shout with glee that all have passed, 'N
For not a lad or lass will remain'
To take the Junior course again.

I was wearily bending over my history bookg the hands of the clock
pointed to midnight. "Napoleon, Napo-leon, Na--po--le--on."
"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'

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.
"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
"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
"Two years from now!', And he has gone. The vision was over.

ROBERTS COMPTON PAXTON
Soon after the opening of school the Athletic Association was or-
ganized and the following officers were elected: Frederick Roberts,
Presidentg Frances Compton, Vice-Presidentg George Paxton, Secre-
tary and Treasurer.
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
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.

"Dutchman" is the captain of the '19 squad
and the A. H. 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.
"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.
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.

HBill" is the lanky center who, at least, al-
ways tries and usually gets there. 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" 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

"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
"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
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.
"'l'al:er" plays right guard next to Paxton
and the man that tries to pass Paxton is cut
down hy Tabor. lf put on the Scrubs for an
afternoon he scents to consider it an insult
and will certainly make the First Team's line
suffer. He graduates this year and it will be
hard to find one to fill his place.

year and are expecting many things from him.
We know so well he can tackle and that is
why we expect him back next year-to tackle
'APeck" is our substitute quarter-back. 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. Al-
though he played in only a few games, he was
always ready to pull off his coat and take the
responsibility of- winning the game. He will
be back with us next year.

Abilene High School had a successful season in football, although not so suc-
cessful as she expected. 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.

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-
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-
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
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.
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.

this year, and the court has had a number of girls on it every after-

Due to the early completion of The Flashlight,
baseball was necessarily omitted. However, this pro-
mises to be the best season in baseball that the Abilene
High School has known. A keen interest is being taken
in the game and the prospects are good for a splendid
team. Several letter men are back with us this year,
and the team in captained by a former letter man, Pat

and with the added interest that is manifested, it is

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
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.

The boys of the debating club held many interesting
debates during the year, the question being "Resolved,
That the government should own and operate the rail-
roads.'7 Much interest was shown in the debate, and many
sound arguments were brought forward. The boys
were required to be able to debate either side of the
question, and the arguments showed much thinking and
research. An elimination contest was held at the last
of school and all but two of the boys were eliminated.
These two winners represented the school in debate. The
winners were Edward King '20, and William Ryan '22,

fi Extract from Abilene Daily Reporter January 16, 1920.
6 ln view of the threatening influenza epidemic it is interesting X
Q to know that last week forty-five Abilene High School girls were lp
ff graduated from the Home Nursing Course given under the auspices Q
' of the American Red Cross. 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. Af

Allen Johnson, age twenty-one, who had been one of the richest, most ex- l
travagant boys in Abilene, now found that what had seemed a foolish impossibility p
was a realityg his father, who had lost heavily in oil investments, was dead, and Allen I
must earn a living for his mother and himself.
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
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.

Mary Ann had at last started to school. 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
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
"Mary Ann, what have you done? Where is the thousand dollars? ls it
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?"

"You can't keep up with those seniors this year. 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
,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.

'lhe principal was busy, but he looked up and regarded the girl so severely that her knees
vegan to shake in a dangerous fashion. Sit down he commanded, and Anne Ophelia thankfully
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.

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
"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.

"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. The second show is at eight, isn't it?"

On January 1, 1920, the Seniors threw off their dignity and became mere children. Such
a jolly crowd of merry little girls and boys! The little tots that were so fortunate as to
find their way to Miss Clack's room were treated to an all day sucker. After a clever chapel
program, which delighted the student body, Miss Burges and the domestic science students served
to the Seniors and the Faculty a delicious luncheon which was conducted like a real grown-up
affair. Samuel Harris was toastmasterg Joe Kennedy manfully toasted the Faculty, Frederick
Roberts gave a clever toast to the girls, to which Bessie Mae Sides responded, Edith Burford read
the class prophecy, and Miss Margaret Goodnight made the children very happy with her happily
worded toast. At the close of the luncheon, Mr. Green and Mr. Dudley gave the dears some advice
for future life. Drowsiness overtook the babies after lunch but the considerate Faculty were very
lenient. Three cheers for the Seniors! Fifteen rahs for the Faculty, and a "wild cat" for the High
