Mildred endeared herself to us by her pleasing personality, her loyalty to
High School, her faithfulness to any task given her.

UNACQUAINTED WITH MISS DIGNITY
People usually expect the WISE Mr Senlor to take prlm MISS Dlgnlty for hIs
ever present companlon but for once he has surprlsed them Her calm reserved
manner has no attract1on for hIm now and she has left broken hearted but wIth a
hlgh head Perhaps the smothered spark In hIs heart wIll ICVIVC and burn agaln
for her next year, but no sooner
Slnce the departure of MISS Dlgnlty who had such a strong Influence Over Mr
Senlor he has thrown aslde many dlsagreeable tralts of h1S character Wh1Ch In
former days caused tlmld Mr Freshman to regard hlm as the undlsputed ruler of
the less learned members of A H S and to run at the sound of hIs gruff command
Ing VOICC But those days are gore and though Mr Senlor makes Mr Freshman
feel and recognlze hIs superlor knowledge they get along falrly well and are seen
together very Often
ln thls year of 22 Mr Senlor IS provmg to A H S and IIS members what a
dellghtful person he can be He wears a broad opt1mIstIc smIle and never gets
worrled or dlscouraged He IS full of fun and good wIll and wIns the confidence
and admIratIon of all who come In contact wlth h1m Of coIIrse he 15 a b1t hard to
get acquaInted Wlth, but then you cant blame hIm so much for that, because he 15 a
busy man, Wlth many thIngs to occupy hIs mlnd and tIme, and, too, he has a host of
frIends wIthOut any effort on h1S part to make new Ones Thls fault Of hIs IS not
Intentlonal and not because he doesn,t want more frIends added to h1S long lIst, for
If a stranger stays around hIm long enough, Mr Senlor wlll fmally break h1S blg

Hail to the Seniors oj the year 227
They re nearin the harbor ull ast
They ve plowed the waters o school days through
And are reaching the port o Graduation at last
They ve ridden the waves o English al d History
Psychology Math and Science too
They have conquered each obstacle solved every mystery
And have proved themselves true blue
They ve ound some joy in every day
That has gone swiftly by
They ve learned both to work and play
Yes the Seniors have sailed the old ocean well
They ve guided the ship safe to port
The shore is coming they hear the bell
That puts an end to their trials and sport
But before they leave the grand old bark
That has borne them through calm and storm
Let s pray that a light may shine through the dark
And keep them o the shoals o Harm
Soon the Seniors will sail on the waters o Time
Each in his own li e boat
For some the weather will be always
On the waves o Fame some will loat
Yet some may never be rich or great
But we hope the best or each
And we pray that the winds of Cloorn and Hate
May never their white sails reach
So hail to the dear old Seniors
0 good old Abilene High
To the Juniors Sophs and F reshies too
The Seniors of by and by

her to be worthy of a place in Business
English class. See Franklin if you doubt

g'Goody" keeps himself busy trying to
get out of handing in themes or managing
for an excuse from detention. He did not
run for class beauty, but if he had, we
would have given it to him, for he can have
anything he wants from the Senior Class.
JOE HAZEL MCBRIDE
Take a goodsmixing howl into which
put two cups of common sense, one cup
of fun, and four eggs of imagination, sift
in and mix well three cups of freckles.
Flavor all this with a teaspoonful of ser-
iousness, and behold! you have Joe Hazel.
Thelma is a girl whom we may charac-
terize as an all-around good sport, with
lots of masculine hearts to her credit.
With this title, it is needless to say she
has lots of friends and good times.
Bennie may be small, but someone told
us that she is a dandy boss. We wonder
whether her ability at drawing will be
turned into designing, or drawing checks
on Fred. Bennie is a good sport, a won-
derful dancer, and a beautiful girl. Here's
to her success.
Eugene is our mighty Sergeant-at-Arms
whose august and severe Visage causes all
Seniors to utoe the mark."
"Our dear little Senior, Eugene Cookg
At the girls he is seldom seen to look,
But once from behind his book
I'm told a glance at L1 girl he took."
Though her stay with us has been brief,
Luzelle has won many many friends. We
girls can't blame the boys, for she is a
beautiful and winsome girl. We do not
pity 6'Turkey" for being so faithful, for we,
too, are worshippers at her shrine.
Fred is a side show when you get him
started. He may be foolish at times, but
some one fwe ainit a-saying whoi said
that his heart was on the right side. Fred
intends to be a coach just like Mr. Shot-
well. Watch him practice or. the Gram-
mar School boys.
J. W. MAGGART
4'Wop" is the famous football center
whom the girls have vainly tried to charm,
but he casts impartial smiles upon all of
them. One might think him fickle, but
on account of his splendid work as Sec-
retary of athletics, we can hardly think
him so frivolous.
Franklin is a combination of friendli-
ness and mischief. He is a comedy in
spite of himself.
'alllozv liereis to old Franklin Haynes, our
With his bright red sweater and devilish
The rnost sturlious person that God ever

Attention, here comes our ray of sun-
shine! Gertie and her curls now appear!
Oh, how the girls all envy her. When she
is a person's friend, you may know that
she is a true friend. Ask her what letter
in the alphabet she likes best and she will
invariably answer, HE."
SU SIE MOORE
She'd make a lovely old maid fthe mod-
ern type with a business air and a dignie
fied bearingl- It will be a misfit if she is
not a Miss always.
Maybe she'll be an Mold maid,"
Maybe she'll notg
But whatever sheill be, I'm sure,
'Twill be the "top of the pot."
Francis leaves the negro preacher in the
shade when she is called on to save the
Sc-3nior's reputation. When Miss Clack
says, l'Francis, have you studied your Eng-
lish lesson?,' she replies with her favorite
expression, "I can not tell a lie."
"An honest two! rnarfs the noblest work
"A girl whose eyes are always laughing,
A girl whose tresses always curlf,
To look at Rosamond's sweet girlish
face and ever laughing eyes, one would
never guess how accurate her brain is or
how she shines out in all her classes.
Sometimes there is just a flash of some-
thing so quaint about Elizabeth that we
know she would make just as good a vamp
as she is a student-if she only dared.
QA little learning is a dangerous thing,"
So Elizabeth "drinks fleepv at her "Pier-
D. W. WRISTEN
Dear worthy brother-that's his real
name. He sits back in that complacent
manner and smiles upon the frivolities of
the world. Some one has called him the
ideal boy-judge for yourself.
4'0zzie" writes funny little verses about
Ford cars and fair maidens. His latest
attempt in literature is the solution of the
immigration problem, and his wise schemes
are characteristic of a second Herod. His
avocation is dancing.
SALLIE MARSHALL GARRISON
'isallie Marshall has left, why we know not,
But sheis greatly missed by the Senior lot.
Wherever she may happen to hurry or

Ross spent the first three years of high
school in the wayside inn of Baird. Al-
though he is one of the youngest members
of the class fdon't accuse him of being
fourteenl, his brilliant mind can always
solve the hardest problems the facultv can
Morgan has two qualities that insure
his success in whatever he undertakes-
ability to persevere and capacity for hard
work. He studies much, behaves well in
Study Hall, but gets in detention once in
a while just to show that he is made of
mortal clay like the rest of us.
Edith is of such a modest nature that
she is known to few of the Seniors. That
she is loved and admired by these few,
however, speaks well for her. lf she does
not teach, she will 'alive in a house beside

Media has not been here long, but has
practised the old proverb of "making hay
while the sun shiuesf' and she is now reap-
ing a harvest of good grades and good
friends as a result. Her sunny disposi-
tion has won the hearts of both teachers
EVA MAE READER
Eva Mae Will creditably fill the role of
model wife in somebodyis model home by
applying the principles she has learned in
Domestic Science. She has won a place
in the heart of everyone who has the good
fortune to know her.
Some boys go through life without an
ambition, but not so with Alpin. He

He will show you
Robbie is a student to be depended on
at all times for everything. She is stud-
ious and faithful in her work. That she
is not all seriousness, however, certain
young men of Hamby can testify.
Dorothy is very apt in making her
grades reach the A mark and letting peo-
ple know that i'Gray" is her favorite color.
She finishes Expression this year as well
as High Schoolg therefore we predict hers
to he a brilliant future.
"The role of Goddess of Liberty befitted
Though a goddess, Lucile has won the
friendship of more of us mortals than she
can count- We think her far more beauti-
ful than the famous Venus, more clever
than the ensnaring Juno. The Romans
might envy us our goddess, but we wouldn't
give her up for gold.
Lawrence is a typical son of the Gold-
en West. The themes born in his bril-
liant mind have made for him many good
grades in English. He is a good athlete
and his style of oratory makes him a de-
light to the Public Speaking class.
We are all proud to have '4lVIonsieur"
Mayfield as a member of our class. His
favorite word is "By George." I guess it
helps him to get good grades on his re-
port card. Prentiss will probably develop
into an explorer: he has such a tendency
to look into everything.
Waunita has made many friends by her
happy smile. She is very fond of read-
ing poetry and washing dishes. We do
not know whether she will teach English
or work in a chop suey joint. MSkinnie"

g'Pek" is as silent as the Egyptian
Sphynx. lt has been rumored that he has
the big head, but those who know him
know that this is not true. He believes
in deeds and not in words as shown by
his record in athletics.
"True worth is in being, not seeming?
We would give '4Tootsie,' another name.
lt would begin with "P-" Why? Be-
cause she was manager of the '6Army,' in
the fall and manager of the MNationals,,
in the spring. Popularity is thc word.
Johnnie is a born mathematician and
leaves us all in the shade when she begins
on her "angle O equals 2 rt. angles." She
leaves behind the memory of a good friend
as well as a good student.
MTenflat" came from Gordon to Abilene
to finish his high school life. He is a
splendid athlete, as his nick-name implies.
He is ambitious to care for some of the
nationis forest reserves. There will be no
need for worry about the preservation of
our forests when Cecil is on the job.
Mae has a tongue with a kick as strong
as home brew and a mind of an extremely
original turn. With her brown eyes she
could draw 4'iron tears down Pluto's
cheek," if she dared to, but Mae does
not delight in "sobstuff."
She has brains and a wealth of wit,
She is bright and clever but not eoneeited
Beatrice is the envy of us all. She
makes grades that would make Socrates
sit up and take notice. She is a born
musician, playing anything from Chop-
stioksi' to "Sonata in Cf, She has a
beautiful voice that will probably charm
large audiences some day.

To know Lolabel is to discover that she
has a heart of gold-a heart which, alas,
is all tied up in certain Simmons Fresh-
men. Lolabel has dimples that Juno
might envy. She is really talented, and
we hope that when she becomes famous
she will not forget poor us.
Thelma may seem quiet, but to those
that know her well she is full of mischief
and fun. Simmons held more attractions
for her than High School, it seems, for she

Will has sung in the Sans Souci, has
played football, basketball, baseball, has
kept the children for his mother, has
served in the '4pen,', and has even had a
date. We think that he is to hold two
positions in life: General Manager in the
Riney Construction Company and Assist-
ant Manager of the Riney Family.

physician and pill specialist.

Byron has unsuccessfully objected to
every law that has been proposed by the
Students' Association, but he is always

Ruth wins one by her quiet, modest
charm and unassuming ways. If you want
any help in any activity, call for Ruth
and in her own way she does it, leaving
us to wonder how and when she did it.
Claribel, another one of our curly-haired
members, is a good sport. She is famous
for her giggle. Her interests are varied,
ranging from writing love letters to em-
broidering in chapel. Sometimes she turns
her attention to more serious subjects,
and, as a side line, does a little cooking.
Poor blushing Fred! They say that in
Public Speaking his first speech was worth

Tim, with his pink cheeks and pleasant

dreamed as many Freshmen do of graduating from Hlgh School He dreamed of having gone
through the four classes of High School and that nlght he was going to the commencement exer
cises to get his diploma
going to the Commencement exercises dressed ln a new su1t of clothes bought especially for the
occasion and with hlm was the prettiest girl of the Senior class she too was dressed 1n her
graduating costume They arrived at the church where the exercises were to be held and had
marched in and were seated with the rest of the class They llstened to the speeches that were
being made and it was about time for the diplomas to be handed out when our hero felt a sharp
punch in the side He looked down but there was nothing punching h1m The punching grew
more often and became more painful Oh' would It never stop? What could it be? lt had
now grown to be unbearable Oh' what s that? Whats that you say?

The Abilene High School football squad started practice about September the first- Thirty
men reported for practice the number steadily increasing until, about one month later there
were sixty men out every day. With the best coach in the state and the best captain in the
West it looked like from the start that Abilene would put out a winning team.
NAVY 3-ARMY 0
The Army-Navy game is held each year in the school to arouse Hpepf, to raise money, and
to show Coach whom he can depend ong this year's game did all of these things. The Navy
won the game by the narrow margin of 3 to 0 by a drop kick from the twenty-five yard line, Cap-
tain Murphy making the kick.
A. H. S. 74-MERKEL 0
The next game was with Merkel on their gridiron. Abilene's team was in best form for
early season. Merkel was outclassed in every part of the game, as shown by the fact Coach
used all the men that were suited out. The final score was 74 to 0.
A. H. S. 70-SWEETWATER 0
The next game was with Sweetwater on our home field. The third quarter was used to give
the second team a chance to show what they had been learning under the work of Coach Brooks.
The game ended with the -core of 70 to 0. ln spite of the fact that the wind was blowing hard
A. H. S. 54.-ROSCOE 7
The following day we played Roscoe. As this is Roscoeis first football team Coach sent
in the second team. Roscoe made the first score by a perfectly worked cross-buck but after that we
did not let them get within the twenty-yard line. Noland's broken field running was the only
feature of the game. The final score was 54 to 7.
Murphy kicked every goal out of as many tries. 7 5

The first real hard out of town game was with Stamford From the score at the end of the
first half it looked as if the game would be tight but at the beginning of the last half Abilene
came back with that never say die spirit fas shown above in the large pictureb and won the
game by a wide margin Maggaits return of an intercepted pass Murphys puntmg and No
lands broken field running were the featuies of the game These all helped to make the score
49 to 6
A H S 24 HASKELL 13
The Haskell game at Haskell was the most uneven in the matter of weight that we had to
face Five of their men weighed ovei one thousand pounds together The line did good work
as a whole and stopped the onslaught of the heavier line many times Seldom did the Haskell
back field break through for any gain Murphy punted well and the ends were always under
hem The back field did good work The score was 24 to 13 This game was later thrown
out by the Interscholastlc League on account of some of the decisions of the referee

dose In this game Murphy missed his first goal this season The last half Coach sent ln the
second team to defend our title and so well did they acquit themselves that only once did Cisco
score The final result was 52 to 7

Brownwood played us for the first time in four years We ran up a large score durmg the
first half and again as m the Cisco game the second team took the field to uphold the honor
of the Black and Cold Brownwood scored making the score 34 to 7
N' A H s 20 COMANCHE 7
By far the hardest game of the season was with Comanche at Brownwood supposed to be
neutral ground It was also the costllest game for us as Bounds received a broken rib The
team showed good interference Comanche scored V13 the a1r route and as they could not stop

The games that came before this made us undisputed champions ln our d1str1ct lald out by
the Interscholastic League We were now to play Big Spring at Sweetwater Captain Murphy
ran the team that would give credit to any coach 1n the south The first score was made by a
fake pass from Murphy to Moore over the goal line The second score was made by Earl Many
thought that Pat was going to pass but as the Big Spring men backed up Pat shot Earl through
the gate that was opened by the l1ne for seven more pomts By the same play Earl made the
The third quarter was the only quarter that they made any ground at all It was during
this half that Big Spring made the three pomts hy a perfect drop kick from the twenty five yard
Pat made the last score on a short end run Just before the the last whistle was blown
We were now forced to go to Electra to play the same team that we battled last year for
the same honor the Northwest Texas Championship
Abilene High received and after making four first downs were forced to punt Electra
having carried the ball down the field at a rapid rate fumbled but recovered across the goal l1ne
This was the first score of the game and the bets on the side l1ne went to seven to one in favor
of Electra The lead was shortlived because 1n six minutes we had made two touchdowns and
two goals The score at the end of the first was 7 to 14
Nolands return of an intercepted punt for fifty yards was the straw that broke the camels
ggck, zitzd from then on the life was out of the Flectra team The final score of this game was

CAPTAIN MA GGART
The brlghtest star ln the whole constellatlon thls year was Captam Maggart Wherever the
fight was the thlckest there was Wopp ,uardmg hrs man keepmg the ball just out of h1s reach
or oftener perhaps passlng lt swlflly to Pek for a sure goal Thls tantahzmg method of Mag
garts frequently ralsed the fightlng Splflt ln the v1s1t1ng team and manys the tlme that an
opponent looked h1m to over to find a safe place to strlke But the spot was not to be found
Through all the confllcts the Captaln was ever steady a safe man and the gr atest leader of
the best strmg of basketball players that ever donned the Black and Gold
Thls year s team was by far the fastest team that Abllene Hlgh has ever put out There were
several reasons for thls ehlef of whlch was that the men who were on the team thls year were
last years men Beall was the forward that came to us from Abllene Chr1st1an College, Hoskms
center played a f1ne game and often shot many long goals Gentry was the hlgh score man ln
played both guard and forward He was 1n basketball as he always IS there wlth everythlng
that IS 1n hlm Rogers was a sure forward When he entered the fray, the score for Abllene
began to p1le up He rarely ever mxssed a shot Moore who played sub guard drd not have the
opportunlty to shlne this season but we expect hlm to be the leadmg llght of next years squad
Brewster our long lanky sub center played a good game throughout Hls opponent hardly ever
tapped the ball over hlm
We fear for next season s sq ldd srnce only Beall Moore and Brewster Wlll be back to defend
the old school The other men w1ll be shmlng m hlgher company

Wood Wray Wood Shone
Coach Davis Captain Harrison Day Wray
The Abilene High School Girls' Team finished the season not only winners in
the County and District lVleet but also undefeated by any team. Snappy playing
and close teamwork were characteristic of all games played. They defeated Hamby
and North Park by large scores, and soon after they met Merkel with equal success.
The hnal game, with Ovalo, played at the County lVleet, resulted in a score of 23-6.
On the whole, the team was the best that has been produced in years and we hope
for further victories and further triumphs next year.
Even though the boys would not vote that the girls have a new tennis court,
the girls flocked in large numbers to try out for tennis under Miss Smith lmaybe
because it is a game said to make the players lithe and gracefull. Ida Hoghland
won girls' singles in both County and District Meet. Cola B. Ramsey and Lucille
Hoskins were winners in doubles in the School and County Meet. The boys, being
more interested in other sports, did not show much enthusiasm in tennis, nevertheless
Gray Browne won at the County Meet in the singles and he and Pete Olds in the
doubles. Gray also distinguished himself and won honors for the school by winning
in the District Meet. We trust that he will come back from Austin with further lau-
rels to his credit. i
Our motto for all time is: 1
More and better players as the years go by,
And a perfect tennis record for Abilene High.

Hanna Guitar Bryan Acton Axe
Mayfield Coach Brooks Shackelford Duke
The track team this year of the Abilene High is the best that the school has ever put out.
Since Mr. Brooks has been able to devote much time to training the team and-since many of
last year's team were back, we are going to the State meet to win.
Abilene won the County Meet in a walk-over, as there were no Class A schools in the county,
except Merkel, and she failed to show much interest in this phase of athletics. The District
Meet we won by the score of 44 points, the nearest team being Stamford with 29 points.
This year will be the last year for Shackelford and Axe, but with Hanna, Guitar, Bryan, Duke,
and Acton back we expect to bring home the big cup again next year.

The baseball squad was called durlng the first of March and
a large number reported Captaln Moore was back as catcher
Murphy was on the mound wlth Bond Sellers Stowe and Mitchell
were holdlng down the other gardens Jack Wrlght was just a
llttle better than last year lf posslble on the hot corner Bounds
played a fast game on the Hrst bag Wlth Beall workmg had on ec
ond and Estes plcklng them up mcely at short stop
Any one can see that we were sure showmg some classy stuff
t1m by a large score next came Anson whlch we took 1nto camp
by the score of 2 to 4 but as the field was plowed the score dld not
represent the real chlference between the two teams Other h1gh
schools would not play us as they were workmg hard to wln the
track champlonshlp of thls d1str1ct
Coach Shotwell matched a game w1th the North Slde Fort Worth
Hlgh School They were to play us two games one on Frlday and
one on Saturday They had a better h1tt1ng club than our team
due probably to the fact that many of them had played on the Fort
Worth Clty League and had profited by th1s tralnlng Bond and
Moore were the batterles for the first day and Murphy and Moore
were the batterles for the second day Fort Worth won both games
by a good slzed margm
On the day after th1s goes to press we are to play Munday at
Munday We are sure we shall w1n thls game because we have put
1n two weeks of hard practlce and for once we are golng to g1VC
them our best
Our motto for all the games that we have played IS
LET THE BEST TEAM WIN WHOEVER IT MAY BE

Sometimes smoldering ln the heart breaks
Of a dire and dreadful vxasfare'
Of a sad and solemn nightmare
Sometlmes pllllflg sometlmes slghing
Always living never dylng
Thus our Splflt nears perfection
As we llve on through the ages
And this prlnclple of Peace
Kindly asks for recognltlon.
Why refuse lt? Why reject it?
For we llnger on the threshold
Of a day of great rejoicing
When all the natlons come together
In a great and peaceful Union.
Can America the all glorious

Will the people of thlS nation

Act as knights of noble honor'
Act as klngs of mlghty valor'
GIVE their souls and all within them

In the match Army-Navy football game played at the beginning
of the season the Navy was victorious. The Army won in ticket
selling though and so the usual reception was given jointly. The
Y. W. C. A. reception rooms were artistically decorated for the
occasion the favored colors blue and red being used. As this
was the first reception of the year most of the time was spent in
just getting acquainted. Punch was served to a large crowd of
boys girls and teachers.
SENIORS ENTERTAINED BY JUNIORS.
In December the big Red Cross drive of the season was launched.
High School always likes to do its part at such a time, and so to
create enthusiasm the Juniors challenged the Seniors to see which
could get the larger membership the victors to be entertained by
the losers. The Seniors won on the basis of 100 per cent, and the
Juniors gave them a party at the Parish House. The party was
unique andenjoyable. A Grand Indoor Trackmeetv was held.
.Such athletics as the Continuous Clum Discus Throwingf' and
a Love contest were held. Oran Shackleford won the love-making
contest by a large majority of the girls votes.
peppermint candy in a half lemon were served.
The Americans having won both the game and the ticket selling
contest wer- cordially entertained by the Nationals, at the home
of Thelma and Bennie Milburn. A big crowd assembled about
eight o clock and the old favorites Wink umv and "Clap In, Clap
Out and other games were engaged in for about one hourg then
another hour was spent in dancing Misses Bennie Milburn and
Margaret Watts being the accompanists. The fun continued until
a late hour when the Nationals served cones to their guests who
decided that even though the Nationals had not won, they surely
knew how to entertain.

bow amld creaklng timbers, fall of rope, and last farewells to dotlng friends upon the quay The
four ships of A H S took their station behind the flag ship, and moved slowly out to sea 1n
such serenity that I was reminded of Colerldges painted ship upon a painted ocean
To day I dragged from the cabin the ships log called by some sailors the Flashlight
and I found many lncldents of the cruise worth recountlng Though hardships were many, the
captain stern and unrelenting at times, and the Admiral given to halr splitting d1St1I1Cwl0I1S on
occasions, yet there were gala days aboard when the bonny boat sped like a bird on the wing,
the waters were placid with the o1l of good fellowship, and bandmaster Kelso waved her baton
and the crew stood at attention and swore fealty to the Stars and Stripes, and roared out Haul
on the bowllne the bully ships arollmg , days when the value of comradeshlp was manlfested
and the men who were ln the foremost ships answered the S O S calls of the weaker vessels,
and halted their course to confer about leadership dlscuss sportsmanship, exerclse craftsmanship
cultivate frlendshlp, experiment w1th courtship, and at the same time avold a coll1s1on with the
destroyer Hardshlp But this was inevitable, the crew would descend the hatchway three steps
at a tlme, would insist upon singing Lil Liza Jane, and would raid the kitchen for ples and
other delicacies left in the oven for which the leading offenders were condemned to languish in
that "dark and dreary dungeon called detention These were the only outbreakmg mutimes record
ments in monkeyshrp, scholarship and penmanship, was discovered entertaining the little court
ship Alma with bursts of eloquence and surrcptltxously darting 1nto l1'tle coves and nooks where
he thought he would not be observed That course certainly exhibited craf'smansh1p However
a little companionship intervened at this stage and His Lordship, with the aid of statesmanshlp
entered 1nto a two power pact with his Frederick Charlesship by which both parties agreed that
neither would slander the other in the presence of Her Ladyship
The attempts of OHICCI' Brooks to inflate or resuscitate those mldshlpmen with whose stu
p1d1ty he was aggravated, by administering odorous gases whlch threatened the lives of also the
innocent bystanders will not soon be forgotten
However the log further recounts the pleasant relationship in general that the members of
the little fleet have had with the OHICSIS aboard and ll notes the fact that many a warm friend
ship has developed during these four years before the mast Comrades now that we are nearmg
port and are slgnallng each other reluctant farewells before we dlsembark for the short period to
precede the time when we shall take our places in the separate vessels that are to bear us out
for a longer cruise on Lifes high sea, lt IS well to remember that on that voyage we shall have
every need for the scholarshlp, sportsm nship friendship, and citizenship we have been surrounded
w1th during thls brlefer preparation, however long it may have seemed to some of us We shall
have no sympathetic sponsorshlp when we come to g1ve an account of our stewardship But with
the experience of this cruise you may rest assured that in the years to come we shall not fall below
the high standard old A H S has always had for us Our sails are set stralght, our colors
are nalled to the mast, and we row forth hopefully and confidently into the future
One shtp drwes East and another drwes West
By the self same wznrls that blow
Its the set 0 the satls and not the gale
That determznes the wav they go
Ltke the wuuls of the waves are the ways o Fat
As we journey alone through llfe
Its the set of the soul that zleterrnmes the goal
And not the storrn and the strtfe

horses neck and he was thrown and tied.
I ran up crying but when I saw Joe being carried off so white and still I got so mad I
couldnt see. I kicked the helpless horse, and then a sudden thought came to me. I would get
revenge and ride him for Joe. No one was watching me as I stood astride the tied horse and
measured the stirrups. Yes they were short enough!
I seized the choke rope in my left hand, reached down and released his feet. I went white
as he rose under me. Hooking spurs in the cinch, I felt myself being carried up, up-then came
a sickening descent. I had one lightning impression of a blur of faces in the grandstand then
a jar that almost popped my neck. The next few moments seemed like some kind of a night-
mare to me. My body was wrenched and tortured by a twisting, turning whirlwind of horse- I
was about ready to turn loose and be thrown when the horse paused for a single instant reared
burst the mighty artery leading from his heart.
I staggered up pushing men from me, and seeing Joe seated over against the fence I went
to him. When I was seated by his side, he put his arm around me-
Did I ride him Joe? I asked sleepily.

In at the wlndow pours floods of sung
It comes to tell us that sprlng has come
For how could we better whlle the time away?
In at the window peeps the half blown rose
The bee steals its honey and away he goes
To take the honey to h1S hlVC that s near.
What IS a better s1gn that sprmg is here?
On a tree near by sits a mocklng bird,
Singing distinctly every word
Trying wlth all hls might and main,
To tell us that sprlng IS here again.
Why should we study this kind of weather?
Away o er the h1lls let us go together.
We shall learn from natures books-
The bees the rose and the babbling brooks-
Learn and shout lt far and near '
Again at last green spring is here!

the drlp, drip dup of the rain, of the rain
the drip drlp drip of the rain, of the rain
T e sweet sad song
T e whole nlght long
Is sung on my window pane
In a dream I rest
In my old home nest
And my mother comes again
And comes she oft
As the drip drip drlp of the rain, of the rain!
Oh' the dr1p drip dup of the rain, of the rain.
My dream Shlp salls
And weathers the gales
Sails out into the main
On the waves soft tossed
Is my dream boat lost
Mid the drip drip drip of t e rain, of the rain
Whlsklng and whirling and off to school
Mlncmg and prancmg to keep the rulg
Droning and groanlng to learn by heart
Old English and Spamsh of mlnor part-
Measurlng and clrawlng to get exact,
The problems of Math according to fact.
Gaping and stretchlng to rest the brain,
Tired and worried wlthout much gain.
Stattlng and golng safely home
From which I feel I can never roam.
It lures us from study to outdoor play,

y The Popular Pathway
to Economical Buying
-Habit is a great master of our lives. We do many things thru force of habit and
not because it is the right thing to do. When we ask ourselves why we did this or
that we do not know
One of the most detr1mental outcomes of habit IS that of spending money cont1n
uously at one place wlthout giving even a passlng thought to the possibility that the
ame or better thing might be bought elsewhere for less money
Hablt often cheats us in this way Money is lost
Get the habit of making comparisons of merchandise of materials of quality
of workmanship and then of the pr1ce
