Ama .lime Brmmia Maude Lambert Stovall 3 f QIIIIIIIIIIIIISKQZQZ FQEJQ- FLASHLIGHT 5i, Q!lllllIllIlllIL 5 7 ' ' h ,Q N I4 B 5 X "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 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 .
