HARRIETT HODGES Harriett is a good friend whose good nature is always on top. Her amusements are talking and chewing gum. 6'Happy am lg from care lim jreeg Why aren'z they all content like m.e?', W.

EULA BELLE WHITTLE .ludging from outward appearances, we believe that Eula Belle's heart is big enough to love the whole world and that it loves her. c'She meets the old world, smiling, And somehow it smiles back at herf, HASSELL BROWN Unlike most boys so full of pep, "Hass" is nearest heaven when seated comfortably before a cheerful fire with a good book. '4Hass,' comes out for everything in ath- letics, baseball being his game. JAMES HANDY James is one of those distinguished and fortunate persons who finished at mid- term. He has nothing to worry about un- til college opens next September.

His new Ford mirrors smiles from the fair sex. WILL SUTTON Willis greatest weakness consists in camouflaging the public with respect to himself, yet he excels as student Cprize- winning-essay writerl, an orator, and a good sport. "Mellow nuts have the hardest finds." NORMA RAMSEY Norma, alias "Kinkf' is mischievous and inquisitive, Mr. Green is fond of pulling her curls, but she is alwa s read with a Y y Y keen comeback.

Grace is always ready for a "go" or a fussg then she will talk-good- ness how she will talk fwith her hands? . ADOLPHUS JENNINGS "Redbird" is like a surprise party. You never know what to expect from him. He sits in class as glum as a spinx, but his grades are good. He is often heard to say, HGod bless the man who first invented sleepf' OPAL STEVENSON Opal distributes her smiles impartially among her friends and reaps smiles and friends in return.

Her idea seems to be: '4Let nothing discourage youg never give upg A pound of pluclris worth az lot of luck." LEROY JENNINGS "Roy" is always trying to bully someone, but it is only in fun. His greatest delight is to expound upon the subject of elec- tricity. "A nice young man, but very shyg He might like to study, but he hates to try.', FRANCES MCELROY The trite expressions, 'ibeautiful golden curlsv and 'ilovely eyes," fail to describe Frances. Though she has those two char- acteristics, she has also a personality dis- tinctly her own. Do her aspirations leap? Yea, by "Bounds" BETTY LASLEY Betty is like a cubic foot of laughing gas compressed into one small soda straw. Her ambition is to become famous as '6Miss Betty Lasley, Pianist," and to rival Pader- ewski. We're sure she'll do it, too. MORRIS HODGES "Mas', is a great Fisherman. Some day he will write a 4hCompleat Angler" and be a second Izaak Walton, but his fish will be hearts. Though silent on most occa- sions, he compensates for it in Public Speaking class, FAYE SALYER Faye has all the peculiar characteristics of a successful school teacher, but it re- mains to be seen whether she will choose that profession or become a home decora- tor. "A lovelier flower on earth was never seen." t i has t 'T 1 t flllelii lflifsl lrlfvrfl l W E A MARIAN HALE Marian has much confidence in herself, for regularly she comes to the Study Hall with that distinguished, lazy walk of hers, just two minutes before the tardy bell. Her one talent is managing. CHARLES BEDFORD Charlie, the Western cowboy-whose type we lament is vanishing-is quiet, courteous. and fair. His mind, like the law of the Medes and Persians, altereth HOL ELVA CLAIRE MILLER 'LA little learning is a dangerous thing", so Elva Claire steers clear of the danger by making exemption grades. She is a loyal member of every activity that makes A. H. S. what it is. JEFFIE LEE STEGNER Jeff is quiet, modest, and bright, but that isn't all. She is good at making every- body like her. When it comes to writing, she is a second Palmer. ALLEN SHAHAN Shahan is as quiet as a mouse, but he has the spring of a cat. Allen likes all, and is liked by all. 4'The world holds no horrors for me,', he quotes. ULUS N EWMAN "Tinyl' left Sweetwater to come to a real school, and has made many friends in Abilene High. Her highest desire is to laugh, talk, and chew gum in the study hall, and get by with it. 21 vt -5 1 . J, ,, ia -tj .g V . .-,x . .k X, L, at NRL?" y- .f-.., W--1. ?f I t 5 K 4. EMPRESS YOUNG Charming, energetic, and loyal Empress --truly a Wonderful bit of humanity! She has always held enviahle positions in every department of school life, "Excellent in taste, practiced in grace Not a Senior can keep her pace." WAYNE HUDSPETH Wayne is the only boy in Mr. Dudley's School Management class. Wonder why? He says he does not intend to be a school teacher, but just wants to be upopularv among the girls. We wish him success! MINA DRUMMOND True-hearted, faithful, and loyal, Mina is a girl who does her hest to make good. She is the type of person who thinks much and says little. Smiles come and gog hers always come. LUCILLE BKUMLEY Though you're pretty mul vivaeious, And your smile and hair are bright. Though you are sometimes quite flirtatious Abilene High votes you ALL RIGHT. FLOYD TOLIVER Floyd is not a towering giant, but he makes up for his smallness of stature in pure grit and speed. He is so fast that his friends have trouble in finding him. His pipe and smile are inseparable. WINIFRED JOINER For four years Winifred has come twelve miles for his education, while many refuse to come three blocks. Such grit and determination are sure to Win any- where, Whether on the athletic field or in the class room. 1.

VELMA JOHNSON Both teachers and pupils love Velma at first sight because she has a lovable per- sonality, and an air of friendliness about her. She has laughed her way through High School, and we shall be the loser when she leaves.

LOIS MILLER g'Pete', is so lazy that baseball practice is the only thing that drags him out. '6Dustyis', favorite position is on the cane chair outside the Tech Service Station.

The organization has for its purpose the fostering and supporting of athletics, debate, declamation, essay-writing, spelling, and other student activities. A very able body of officers was elected, who, under the leadership of our -enthusiastic president, "Dub7' Wooten, made this a very successful year. The Association of '23 wrote on the pages of Abilene High School history that the seal with its rays illuminating the word "Abilene" shall be permanent, that the gridiron eleven, who won for Abilene High the 1923 championship, be christened the 6'Eagles'7g that each player who has completed either his four years on the 'agridv or is finishing his high school career be presented with a black sweater bearing the time-honored gold HA." In addition to these things, there has been created as the youngest organization of the Association, the Pep' Squad fwearers of the uniform dark skirts and yellow blazersl-these shall, in the future, lead Abilene High onward and upward to the chant of their slogan: uYour pep!

Secretary AGNES CALDWIQLL Treasurer The C an C, a secret organization, started among the senior girls several years ago, had for its members eighty girls who pledged themselves to be loyal and true to the school at all times. The girls were initiated in the early fall by a few of the senior girls of last year. The initiation, a mysterious affair, taught the graduates that even they had not experienced all things in life. At the hrst meet- ing Gwendolyn Mudd was elected president and Norma Ramsey, secretary. Meetings of the organization were held once every six weeks. At these times all business was attended to and suggestions were made for helping the members do their duty. As there were so many in the organization, it was impossible to have entertainments during the winter, but is expected that there will be several meetings in the spring. The purpose of the C an G is to uphold the honor and dignity of the Senior Class and to foster a democratic social spirit among the girls of Abilene High School. -61- V The K. O. K. JAMEs HANNA Judge DICK BRYAN . . Slzerijjt J. W. WOOTEN Deputy Sheriff CHAtu.r:s WELLS . . . Deputy Sherijjt W. J. HPIMBREE Prosecuting Attorney Defending Attorney THE K. O. K. The K. U. K., an organization composed of the letter men of the school and hav- ing for its purpose the betterment of the underclassmen, has long made history in the Abilene High School. It is not intended solely as a Kourt of amusement, but it really strives to correct the faults of the underclassmen and to instruct them in what they should and should not do. ln chronic cases this instruction takes on a more formidable manner, and in all cases gratifying results have been obtained. The Kourt has proved very effective not only in preventing disorder during school but also in improving the manners of the Freshmen. It is quite a coincidence that since the Kourt has been active, all Freshmen have been loyal to the school activities and have faithfully attended rallies. These marked results have been obtained through several methods, and herein lie the secrets of the Kourt. It is sufficient to say that a jury composed of the mem- bers of the football team, with Tubby Hembree prosecuting attorney and such honorable witnesses as Sheriff Dick Bryan and his two deputies, Dub Wooten and Chile Wells, together with Judge Hanna, there has been little difficulty in obtaining convictions in all cases tried this year. Along with its own high purpose, the Kourt has always attempted to aid the faculty in keeping order. and the Kourt appreciates the cooperation of the faculty. Since they were determined to have a Senior girl as ufllashlightl' Queen, the K. 0. K. took an active part in the contest, and this year put its representative on the front page. To all whom it may concern, which includes Freshmen, Sophomores, juniors. and unruly Seniors, let this be a warning: BEWARE OF THE K. O. K. W63- iffis 1 , '- .aw IF ,f A ,N wr.

The debating club was Organized early in the year, and work was begun by a study of the history and the covenant of the League. Debates were held between members of the club, and from these debates Francis Fry and Thomas Lane in boys, debate and Thelma Suber and Ulus Newman in girls, debate were chosen to represent the school against Oak Cliff here on January IH.

PEARCE For the lirst time in the history of Abilene High School a Home Economics Club has been organized. The founders of the club, Mrs. Pearce, Miss Turnbough, and Miss Compere, helped the girls organize on Monday, January 21, 1924, and only girls who had taken some form of Home Economics were admitted as members. The Club meets twice a month on Tuesdays. On the lirst Tues- day is a social meeting, on the second, a program meeting. The social meetings consist of initiation parties, hikes, and picnics. Cur- rent topics are discussed at the ilogram meetings, The Home Economics Club has a threefold purpose, hrst, to en- list more interest in the Home Economics Department, second, to keep older members of the department in touch with the depart- ment, third, to provide social recreation for the girls. The Club is doing great w ork, and it is wished by each member that this or- ganization may live as long as our dear old Abilene High. M71- Literary Societies LOS TRABAJ ADORES MOTTO: El trabajo hace la vida mas agradable. FLOWER: The red carnation. COLORS: Red and White, On February 26, 1924, a group of Spanish students Inet in Room 2 for the purpose of organ- izing a Spanish club. After Mr. Allen told what the advantages of such a club would be, every one became very enthusiastic. The following officers were elected: Will Henry Haney, Presi- dentg Herbert Southworth, Vice-Presidentg Helen Noble, Secretary-Treasurerg Thomas Lane, Reporterg and Mr. Allen, Critic. The Club was organized for the purpose of learning to speak Spanish more fluently. Spanish is used entirely at the meetings, which come every other Tues- day night at the HY" Hall. At the meetings at which programs are held, the old Spanish countries are studied. Occasionally there are to be held social meetings at which we expect to have a good time and to learn a great deal of Spanish. This is the first organization of its kind that has been attempted in this school, and it is hoped by all the members now that this may become a permanent club of Abilene High School.

Neither team knew itself, that is to say that since this was the first game for both schools, neither eleven showed very close team work. But every one will admit that Stamford had a defense that was almost invincible. The Stamford crew showed their strength once by holding Abilene for downs on the 10-yard line. The only score of the game was made in the last five minutes of play, during which time the Eagles advanced the ball from midfield by a series of end runs, line bucks, and forward passes down to the 9-yard line where, on the third down, Pete passed the ball across the goal line to Leroy Jennings, a substitute who had taken Brooks' place on end. Pele kicked goal as the whistle blew. Saturday, October 6 ABILENE 62-EASTLAND 0 Two weeks after the Stamford game, we met Eastland and had an easy victory over her, beating the Red and Black warriors by the score of 62-0. Wonders had been worked with Eagles due to the efforts of Coach Shotwell, and We opened the game with a rush that has always been characteristic of old Abilene High. ln the first quarter, we secured the lead and, although East- land fought hard, maintained it throughout the game. All of our subs and part of the second team men were used, but they proved their meltle by making touchdowns almost at will during the final quarter. Friday, October 12 ABILENE 25--COMANCHE 0 By beating the Comanche eleven, we drove another peg into the ladder in our climb for the State Championship, The Eagles gave the Comanches' a perfect exhibition of broken-field run- ning when Steve galloped for sixty yards and put over a touchdown.

The Eagles got the ball at the beginning of the game and made a touchdown in the first three minutes of play, after which touchdowns came frequently. Several times Abilene received the ball on the kick-off and ran through for a touchdown. The longest run of the game, a distance of eighty yards, was made by Steve when he scored a touchdown through right tackle. The interference of the Eagles was a pretty thing to watch. Every man was in his place, and the Dublin team was unable to break through to the man with the ball. At length Dublin was forced to stop playing in the third quarter because she did not have enough substitutes to re- place the men who were forced out of the game on account of injuries. Friday, October 26 ABILENE 59-BIG SPRING 0 We moved up another round in our climb for the State championship when we beat Big Spring to the tune of 59-0. This made our fifth victory, and brought the total number of our points scored this season to 2579 as yet the Eagles' goal line was uncrossedf The Eagles drove their talons into the Big Spring aggregation, and at no time was our goal line in danger, while we crossed their goal line nine times. Four of the touchdowns were the results of forward passes, one of an intercepted pass, and the remaining four came as the results of straight football. Probably the most brilliant feature of the game was Seep Browne's interception of a Big Spring forward pass and his racing sixty yards for the goal. Bob Compton also showed his ability as a broken-field runner when he ran forty yards through the entire Big Spring team for a touchdown. Saturday, November 11 ABILENE 74-BRECKENRIDGE 0 At the beginning of the season, Breckenridge was considered the strongest team that Abilene would have to meet in District 3, but as a fan expressed it, 'fBreckenridge had a lot of beef, and .861 .Maj--. .W -N4 ' .V f- -I, . -- - 4 . ,fa-L A ,mmf . 5, aa..

According to dope, the Eagles had a 64--point edge on the Lobos, but the dope bucket was turned over. The backfield of any team Cannot win without the support of the line. The Eagles did not play as a perfect machine but as eleven individuals. This was most likely due to their underestimating Cisco's strength. Cisco fought hard and put across a touchdown, a feat that only Boody Johnson could do last year. Red Smith, Cisco's right tackle and the greatest menace to the Eagles line, broke through the line several times and smeared as many plays. The Eagles scored during the opening minutes of play in the second quarter, but Red Smith broke through and ruined Pete's chance for the extra point. A penalty and 21 fumble then gave Cisco the ball. A Cisco man caught, juggled, and finally held what appeared to be an imp0ss'lf e forward pass.

By smothering Stephenville with the score 53-0, we again maintained this honor. , Although the Eagles outweighed the Yellow Jackets twelve pounds to the man, the Stephen- ville team put up, in the first quarter, the strongest offense we had met up to that time. But the A Yellow Jackets were strong on the defense as well as on the offense, and they displayed their fj strength by once holding us for downs on our 4'-yard line.

W1 ji Abilene received the ball on Fort Stockton's fifty-nine yard line, and in five downs we pushed 41 across the goal line. Touchdowns followed in rapid succession until, at the end of the half, the 4 ld score stood 82-0 in favor of Abilene. Fort Stockton, realizing the hopelessness of her situation, gave up the game in the third quarter.

Amarillo came to Abilene determined to get revenge for the defeat suffered c' ' by them at our hands last year, but they met a team more determined than ever to defeat them again. The Golden Sandstorm took a funnel shape in the first quarter, but the Eagles settled the dust in the last three quarters. After all is said, it must be admitted that if Kelly, the Sandies' , left half had been able to stay in the game, the score might have taken on a different aspect. X lil The game was full of thrills. Early in the contest it looked as if Steve had broken the tie 4 when he crossed the goal line with the pigskin, but he was called back because he was off-side.

During this quarter Amarillo was strongest, making three consecutive first downs. During the second and the third quarters the Eagles scored fourteen points, but it remained until the fourth quarter for the shower of points to come-we Htotedi' the pigskin across the goal line five times in that quarter. Dub brought the spectators to their feet when he intercepted a pass on Amarillo's 20-yard line and breezed eighty yards for a touchdown. Friday, December 14 ABILENE 25-WICHITA FALLS 0 The Eagles exemplified the fact that team work is better than one-man playing when they defeated the Coyotes. To Leo Baldwin, Wichita's lanky left half, who was said to be the best backfield man in Texas high school football, must go the honor of being the outstanding player of both teams. Wichitais attack was centered around Baldwin, and in defeating him, we defeated Wichita, The game in the first quarter looked as if it would settle into a match of strength and force against strength and force, but the superior team work, the better playing, and the greater knowledge of football possessed by the Eagles won for Abilene. The first quarter passed with neither side's scoring. In the second quarter, Dick grabbed Baldwinis punt on the 10-yard line and lumbered across the goal line. In the third quarter Steve, running true to form, stepped off sixty-seven yards for a touchdown-the longest single gain of the game. In the fourth quarter Baldwin gave Abilene a clear case of heart failure when he broke loose and ran forty-yards. It looked as if he were good for a touchdown, but he failed to take into consideration Tubby, who crept up on him and made a beautiful tackle from behind. This game settled the championship for Northern Texas, and again gave us the chance to mix it with Waco, the champions of Southern Texas.

Qi ft The scene of this memorable battle was on the muddy, rain-soaked, grid-iron of the Fair 1. t Park Stadium, Dallas, on the drab Friday afternoon of December 21. By drowning the Waco - ,i Tigers in the slush, we won the State championship'-the thing we had been slaving and working 14 5 for for four years. iff, To name the heroes of the State championship team would be to name every man on that gf' wonderful team, for the honor was won by eleven men working together as a perfect, well-oiled X 'f machine. But the names of Pete Hanna, Dub Wooten, and Herring Bounds will go down in the jf history of Abilene High because their work was more noticeable than that of the others. Pete .ET 3 rose to the dizzy heights of fame when he kicked the field goal that won for us the championship L of Texas. Fans still wonder how Dub maintained his footing on that muddy field. On a dry field . Dub's return of punts for such great distance would have been marvelous, but on that slippery S surface-adjectives cannot describe his performance.

V ft 7 As the statistics verify, Abilene clearly outplayed Waco in every department of the game. except in passing, and the Eagles did not try any passes. Waco lost her best chance to score when she fumbled the ball on Abilene's 7-yard line, The second quarter was a hard fight through- out, during which time- Abilene made two first downs, and the period closed without either fl. team's gaining any noticeable advantage. Both sides were getting desperate. The fourth quarter was almost gone when Abilene punted over the goal line. .lust as Kelly, Waco's right half, tried if and end run from the 20-yard line, he fumbled, and Dick, scooping up the ball, ran several yards Z nearer the Waco goal line before he was brought to the ground. In three downs, the ball was Z placed squarely in front of the goal posts. Pete dropped back to the 25-yard line and place- kicked the mud-covered pigskin squarely between the uprights. The Abilene fans went wild, and, right then, there was not one who would not have gladly given everything he or she poss- sessed to Pete. The Tigers started an aerial attack in the last few minutes of play, making two good gains on passes. But in spite of this advantage, Boody Johnson miserably failed when he X tried to drop-kick from the 32-yard line. The ball was recovered by Abilene on her 4-yard line, if and here it rested when, a minute later, the final whistle blew that brought to Abilene the State I championship. This was indeed the grand finale of a glorious season for the unconquerable Eagles, the toast of Abilene High and the pride of all Texas. - --"f f'-1-sr-rf--T-fs-""r'v 'ffvrff-'r ' ' 192-Q fi N ,XX XX., px, A t, LK , ctt. ,xsgtjgfg A.H,.V.

On account of the early date of going to press, we are unable to give the results of the county and district meets, but as the time for these events draws near, the prospects for a winning track team look bright. Among the letter men back this year are Captain Bryan, Pete Hanna and Bill Rathmell. Dick will surely show some one strong competition in the hurdles, Pete is still covering the middle distances in record time, and Bill is showing up well in the weights. The most promising of the new- comers this year is Roy Stevens, who comes to us from Merkel. Steve was third high point man at the State meet last year, winning second in both the 100 and 220- yard dashes and Hrst in the broad jump. He also starred in football this year with the Eagles. Arlos Cilbreth is another honor man in the State meet last year, winning third in the half mile, class B. We hope that the 1924 track team will win laurels for themselves and glory for Abilene High School. -98, ff TENNI - ff'-' O g MMO' Judging from present indications, it seems that Abilene will he well represented in tennis this year. The girls, under the direction of Mrs. Hicks, are showing up nicely,fRay and May Wood in the doubles and Alice Southworth in the singles. The boys under lVlr. Allen, are fighting hard for places on the teams, and it looks as if we are going to send all our teams to Austin this year.

There are between forty and fifty men coming out reguarly, and with seven letter men back, the chances for a winning team look good. The annual American- National game is to be played on March the eighteenth. A three-day series of games has been scheduled with the Golden Sandstorm at Amarillo, to be played on April 27, 28, and 29. A game has also been arranged with Rotan, but the date for playing has not been set yet. Since this book goes to press so early in the year, we are unable to give an account of any of the games, but We hope that uDusty'7 lVliller, the captain, will lead our team to many victories. -102-- J -V 'A ' 'J 1 ,fy- 53 pggwfw ,fp Q-, f .,,, i, 4- -.:,--Z'..

O Lady fair, why hast thou never drawn that arrow from its quiver? Why is thy stag eager to jump forever, And yet it never tireth? And thy bow-it never fireth? 0 Goddess, things queer are happening here, But some of these to you are very near, And the queerest things that I ever did see Are happening right here by me. For thou art called the goddess of the moon, And yet thou remain forever in the gloom Of this old dreary study hall, And never even to thy two companions dost thou call. What happens here at night, That makes thy stag look such a sight, With his feet where his horns should be, And his horns adorning his knee? Why, on some occasion, with a ribbon on thy head, Dost thou dress up in gaudy green and red? Dost thou seek the lover's kiss of a modern cavalier? If not, why dost thou wear the headdress of one who sits so near? I know thou dost not like to talk, Especially to a mortal who the lowly earth must walk, But Goddess, as I before thee bow, Wilt thou answer just one question now? 0 Diana fair, for four long years have I sat here by thy side, When I am gone, oh tell rne, if thou canst decide, Wilt thou remember me as I will remember thee, or still Wilt thou forget me as all these other mortals will? -THOMAS LANE. -104- .,gr, ,..........mi, T l:s:z1lss:liL........frnIllini!

As the game which opens the football season ended in a scoreless tie, and since the Army won the ticket selling, the Navy was in charge of the reception, however the Army 'cchipped inn and shared the expense. At eight olclock the crowd began to gather, and by eight-thirty it had assumed ap- preciable proportions. The program, consisting of group contests, jokes, and games, was so very well organized that every minute was full of hilarious fun. This verv successful affair was culminated by refreshments consisting of chocolate ice cream cones, which were enjoyed to the utmost by two hundred happy enthusiastic guests. JUNIOR-SENIOR HALLOWE,EN PARTY On the cold misty evening of October 27, the Juniors gave a Halloween party honoring the Seniors. At seven-thirty olclock, the ghosts crept up the stairway, and halted at the door which led to the beautifully decorated 'LYW rooms. At the door each ghost had to expose his identity. ln turn, he was given a number, a pencil, and paper, and sent in to recognize his ghost friends, and to write their names on his paper. The one who collected the greatest number of names was awarded a handsome prize. Witches, dens were stationed in each corner of one of the rooms, and every spook had a chance to have his fortune told by a wise old witch. After everyone was gathered into one room, the lights were turned off, and a very weird ghost tale was told by Miss Empress Young. Music and singing were furnished during the entire event. When all were unmasked, everybody took part in a snake dance. During the latter part of the party, a long line was formed and each guest in turn was served a plate containing an all-day sucker in witch costume as a plate favor, pumpkin pie, and coffee. This was one of the happiest events of the year. GLEE CLUB PARTY The NYU halls became the scene of much merry making as the boys and girls of the Abilene High School Glee Clubs gathered to celebrate their coming out. Eats, fit for the followers of Euterpe, were passed, but these served only to tease our palates forgalasl glossy snakes, celebrating the victory of the Eagles, danced in, and suddenly all was dark. When Pluto reigned no more, behold! there were no snakes, likewise, no refreshments. But singers shouldnit be fat. fll6- 1'iYC'fK oft?-Pi x,,1,., .

From box seats adorned with those gold and black blankets smeared with the precious mud from a victorious gridiron, that valiant team and its beloved coach enjoyed a theatre party-yes, enjoyed it,fe-for it was indeed a treat just to sit and Watch the stars in another field of action Without having to exert any physical or even mental effort.

Cheers -more music growing into a storm of applause when Henderson ap- peared. - In the address which followed, Abilene was given the tribute due to clean sportsmanship and athletic ideals. At last a package was held to view and the wrapping removed. Every head bent for- ward. It was the silver football, symbol of championship, which had for three years approached almost within grasp of Abilene High, then had eluded her eager fingers. On a polished ebony stand it rested in all shimmering beauty a memento to the year when Hanna, Bounds, Hembree, Wooten, Rathmell, Wells, Bryan, Stevens, King, Watson, Brooks, Flesher, and Browne plugged doggedly to victory, a memory of that last year Coach Shotwell belonged to Abilene High, more than all an incentive to 'ccarry onw through years to come toward the goal Abilenels men have set-fair-square ideals, clean sportsmanship, victory!

Tomorrow at two- thirty, Weston's players would go on the field to battle for the gridiron championship. For four l'L long years they had worked, fought, and prayed, this year piling up the highest score in the state, EQ with their goal line crossed only once. Todayis practice and tomorrow-the agony, the suspense- jf, all would be over. For several of the fellows this was the last game, and they were determined 53" to win. lndeed, they must carry .the blue and gold to victoryl l The team came early to this last practice. An eager team it was, and in splendid condition- lf, seemingly. A swift succession of punts and downsg then a puzzled frown darkened the face of Coach as he watched a tall player across the field-Stanley Garside, wonder right halfback and 1 captain of the team, affectionately dubbed g'Stan,' by his friends and admirers. ln truth, though ,. still a boy of eighteen, he had scores of ardent admirers and some hero worshippers. "Stan can do it,', they would say. He could-at least he always had. A bad play from the right halfbackl 4 Another and then another! All during practice Stan had made bad plays. Was he so worried ,' about tomorrow's game? lt was not like Stan, this nervousness, softness, and the lag in his light- it ning run. Coach frowned again. What was wrong? Q fl There was a whistle, and the players gathered about Coach. He spoke in quiet tones of 41 authority. 4 , l 'Alf every man goes into the game with his mind made up to win, we CAN'T lose." tj. He glanced sharply at Stan. and his lips set in a hard line. Those tired eyes and that worn- ffffffg out look spoke of orders disregarded, late hours. Coach stepped closer and detected a faint 'lqfff odor of cigarette. He started to speak, then checked himself, The boys were watching him, their jlffffi Coach-a little fellow-the greatest, the best, the cleanest high-school coach in the state. 1117 "Stan, you may turn in your suit!" he snapped,his brown eyes blazing. "You're not fit to play. Wleive no place for youf, Practice started again, leaving Stan on the sidelines in a daze. He made his way blindly to the hllule Burn." Later. the boys came, but there was not the laughter, yelling, whistling, and singing that always accompanied the showers and dressing after practice. Instead a strained silence pervadcd all. f - In front of Weston High stood Stan's gray roadster, and toward this he directed his steps. I He crawled in, slumped down in the seat, and set his foot heavily upon the gas. The car shot out into the lake road at a more than necessary speed and wound through the foothills at an insane pace, making the last turn towards the big lake, on two wheels. Stan had forgotten the treacherous sand beds. Mechanically he applied the brakes, the car swerved, plowing headlong into a roadside bank. Stan stepped out, still dazed, and strode the remaining distance to the lake. Completely exhausted, he sank down by the wateris edge and buried his bead in his hands. C, Hours and hours he sat thus. a mocking in his ears: i'You're not fit to play. We've no place for you." if The fellows stood about him, with a look in their eyes, questioning, almost pitying. Coachl Coachl He could not face the accusing eyes even in thoughtg yet they were there-blazing. "Stanley," called a soft voice. Why. nobody now ever called him that. "Stanley,,' it came ,,f again. He looked up into the face of his beautiful mother. That she should see him there-he X, shuddered. She knelt down by him and placed her arm about his shoulder. What a relief! "Look, son," she said after a time, pointing out across the water. There before him lay Wes- ton. She told him of its hopes, its possibilities, its future-an educational center unequaled, a city if -122- ggi 1 'ga ' ffl 1 I-QW. -. or-.rar-'iffffiis-sas assi' sstrisgilir, H Q ,tfjgaf---3571,-7 ,Tfs-5,3,ffff-V,e,f-f-fvff-A ,f 1' -5- x..-U ----...---V.-- ,, ..,,,,.- ,,.,,,.,. . . , - AAA, S, ,,,, 1,s,,,4.,,..,c.,... ,,., ,,,,f,,,,w,1T at F74 PZ?

Other buildings were on the campus, too. lt must be-of course it was Weston Highg and those other buildings were the Gym. the Library. and the Manual Training and Domestic Science Laboratories of which they had tlreained--now a reality. How familiar the sight, yet one that caused a hurt deep inside. -Xnd this was the school he had deserted. Not love that? Oh, he did love it. Those colors? He wanted to walk over the water to it all, crying out that he was not yellow. not a traitor. The sun was up when he awoke. By degrees he was himself again. What was it-this feeling of duty? Stan arose and went to his car, bnt to his surprise found a broken axle. For the first time, he realized the distance that he had made, He must recover that before two-thirty. Would a lift come? It came. A shackly old car passed, and he hailed it. Somehow they reached Weston High just as the one oiclock whistle blew. At the north door Stan met Coach and grabbed his arm. i'Coach, you were right to put me out yesterday. I was doing things wrong. Iive changed. Something has happened to me. Iive got to do my part for Weston High. l owe it to her." Coach was like a man of stone. "Coach, I'm out-I know. I'm not asking to be back in. but can't I put on my suit-just this last time-and sit on the sidelines? lill carry water, do anything just to be there-dressed in the old colorsefor the old school. Coach, can't l? Coach, you don't know what it'll mean. Can't I, Coach? Can't I?', he pleaded. Coach looked straight at him, then nodded his head. How slowly those three quarters of the game passed, and the hours and hours long they had been. The fourth quarter came. Score 0-0. Could Weston do it? Stan had torn up the ground where he sat, and had almost gritted his teeth out, More than he had ever done, he fer- vently prayed. At that moment the reserve right halflmaek was knocked out. ,Xlready the team had begun to weaken. Would Weston fail? Stan sprang to the little man. 'LCoach, hels hurtl Let me in!" A few seconds passed. 'ACoach, welve got to do it. It's my team. They trust me. I can do more with them, tired as they are, than anybody else. Coach, for Gods sake let me in!" Silence. "You canit say no. I've got to! You've got to send somebody ing they're waiting on you. We can do it." UGO on. Report to the referee." Had a miracle happened? From where did the team's new strength come? The spectators went mad. In a trance Stan heard strange signals faintly reaching his ear. From instinct only, he caught the ball and plunged forward. When he got his breath again. signals were being called. Again he caught the ball, and was nailed to the ground with a short gain. More signals, He was up running for the goal, something drawing him on. He plunged across. After a time he felt himself being raised in the air. In the arms of his laughing. crying, and shouting team he was paraded over the field. When he was lowered to the ground, a hand gripped his. It was that of Coach.

All day he had gone without fat or lean, And in the wee small hours of the night While he was wandering o'er all the house, High on a shelf he looked at a sight- A sight most wondrous for a mouse. Now this precious object-namely, a cheese, Which every mouse thinks is quite the beeis knees Had fallen from a shelf and now lay in a bookg This marked the end of the poor mousels luck. On the book was marked the single name Burnsg But, as I may say, all that a mouse learns s Is "Eat, drink, and be merry, do just as you please, For who knows but tomorrow they'll stop making ch Because of this the mouse couldn't tell That on the page where the old cheese fell Was written that poem now known to fame. "For a' That, an' al That" is its name. Since virtuous in all respects was the mouse, He decided to take some cheese to his spouse. He looked about for a bit of paper, And into his eyes grew the desire for a caper. He tore from the book the sheet of the poem, Wrapped up the package, and started for home. But ere he reached his mansion bright, Into the day had faded the night. " 'Tis breakfast time," said he with a grin, As he busily stuffed the old cheese in. Now this greedy mouse was in such a hurry to eat, Cheese and paper went down in a manner not neat. It made him sick, and for three long days He could utter but this one short phrase: 4'Gnaw that, gnaw that, gnaw that, gnaw that, Gnaw that, gnaw that, gnaw that, gnaw thatll' Clear the He doesn' On He But on a track for Jelly Joe t hail from Idaho a wild cayuse ain't no use ball-room floor, MY-0. -132- 6856 33 QTTN , Q 9, . Q 4 A TALL LIVER Story or HOW TONs Fell Herbert Rutledge Southworth Once upon a time there was a boy named Lee Mac JONES. He was descended from two KINGS. His great-grandfather was it COOPER, and his grandfather was a WAGONNER. He was born at Stratford-on-aVON, but his father had later moved to AUSTIN, Texas, but then re' moved to BRAZIL. - There were three little boys who lived near him. One was ,IACK'S SON, another was JOHN'S SON, and the last one was STEPHEN,S SON. They could not talk very plaing and when they wanted Lee, they would say, "MA, CALL LEE," und when they got angry at any one they would say, MMA KILL ROY." Lee was a very strong boy, and he could carry a HOD ,IUSt like a man. He was also very fond of animals. One day after he and his father had crossed many BROOKS, had gone down many LANES, and gone over many HEATHs, his father, a MILLER, who had been in COXey's army said, "See the RAM SEE it, son?" It is called GIP, SON. The boy did not like the ramsg so he turned his head beHIND. Seeing neither STAG NOR any other animal, except 11 lamb, he went to the lamb. HMY LAMB," he said as he petted it. "BAA Baaf' said the lamb. He then adVANCEd to the HANDY man, HAM ELTON, who was sawing WOOD. "Are the LOGS DONE?" he asked. ' '4Yes, but I donft think I shall finish those ASH logsf, he said. "These AXES are so dull. I shall probably have to WHITTLE them away. lf I do finish them, I shall feel like a NEW MAN." Lee was a very sharp boy, and when he looked at the axes they became sharp. He handed one of them to the man, who said, 'SNOW it CUTS. MAN. You did just what a good BOY'UD do." As he was walking down the road, he met a man HAULING SHEDS. The man handed a petition to the boy, who looked to see the names on it. There were NONE, and for this reason the boy would SIGN OR do any things else. He thought there was MORE GAIN in not doing so. He went to his LARGE HOMES, He had two homes. In one of them his grandmother, who was a NOBLE lady, livedg in the other lived his mother. It was a WOODEN house painted WHITE and BROWN. Lee spent most of his spare time at the MILL HARD by. He knew that he was late to dinner, for he had heard the BELL. He sneaked past the BUT- LER and sat down at the table. The COOK was sick, and his mother was serving a steaming dish. 'LIS it BACON ?7' he asked, 4iHOW'S that? OH LIVER. You know I donit like liver, especially if you FRY it.', His mother made him eat it. He was afraid to protest, for he had seen her WRATH MILL -134- IZ .flllllillf IZYJ' cnbfm ,W Emi Qfiiwlfilp 1' fx 'if' - TO TH M! , ,f 669676 I b .SPACE 1' -'fx ' D pb EEINE F at ,ffm HE wma wene , 7 , 31 ' Emil? 50moTo HAVESYTS L Q E0 15u1LToFoooosouo HA ,4 QQ, Q Averzm. ik f in gf?

Then he went out into the yard where his YOUNG mule was. The mule was CALLED WELL. Lee went to see the PARSON'S daugh- ter, RUTH, who was a very pretty girl and had some beautiful LOCKS. The parson was a very studious man, and had written a book entitled l'What is the SOUTH WORTH-an Accurate Ac- count of it GINNINGSY' Ruth did want to ride the mule, but when Lee told her that a mule PACKS TONs she con- sented to ride it. When she had mounted it, the mule got LOOSE in the FIELDS. 'LTURN HER, turn her,', he cried. "HOW? LET me know," said the girl as she fell into the MUD. ' 'GHOW HARD the ground is" said the poor girl, "Co and get one of my KIN, SIR Kade, the CARPENTER, to help you." Then Lee went to her KIN, KADE, the carpenter, and told him to build him a cart. When it was finished, the boy asked the PRICE " Five billion rubles," answered Sir Kade. "Great SCOTT! I have only two NICKLESY said the boy, as he grabbed the cart and ran away. He went to get his sister RAY, while Sir Kade pursued. Lee and his sister tried to raise the unconscious girl, but she was too heavy. They just about GAVE IN. With all their POWERS, they could not budge her. "If we wilL EACH do our share, it will be all right. MY, AT this rate we'll never WIN. SET her down againfl said the boy. "Look, her HAIR IS white, it must have scared her to deathfl He caught the mule and, with its aid, raised the girl. NLASS, SET HER down easily," he said, and when this was done, he cried, "HAIL, HAIL!" He had rejoiced too soon, for the carpenter was fast approaching. Lee began to CART HER and run as fast as he could. They soon came to a strange land. He felt his ELESH OR his bones quiver and rattle. He had a LIGHTFOOT, and his knees ran away in a SHAY. 'iHANs off! HEY, KNEE," he said, but his HEYS were of no avail. There were strange animals all around, MGRR-IF-A THE little boy-fi They heard no more, they ran so fast. uLook at the CROW, LEEg and what are those, MAC, GUINEAs? They have HORNS BY their heads. And look at that 'WIIIZZING ANT with a TAIL, OR are those legs? Look at the HAWK INSide of the cloud," said his sister as she rattled on. There was a strange stream near them. Lee stood listening to the murMUR. RAY was look- ing at the TROUT, digging GRAVES in the creek BED. FORDs were carrying away the gravel. There was 'a HERB AND a GREEN WOOD nearby. A little farther down the stream, Lee caught a fish without a GILL. BREATHing was a hard -136- HTWHEL rp f rw .., A, lpibl-QLJKGHT 1 hl T A -137- iff fi ,EE 5 2.1 process for him. Also the fish was without a FIN. BERGs were floating around in the BOG OR something nearby. Lee fell into the creek and caught 3 cold. "JN FREEZET' asked his sister. "Believe me, you had better get rid of that COUGH, MAN." They soon became hungry, and Mac gave Ray a half of a stick of colored dynamite to chew on. f6But, Mac," said Ray, "I want it entire, MAC, ENTIRE? Mac refused to do this, and she blew up. Soon they came to the SuDAN. HER eyes spied a flag in the distance. As they approached, they found that it was flying over a pirates' cave, The pirates laughed at the boy because he had SOOT ON his face, BLACK BURNed cork on his hands, and gREASE on his trousers. Sal, the chief, was playing a GUITAR, while the DRUM MAN was playing a WOOD DRUM. On their heads the pirates wore large HOODS. PATHS led from all directions to the wateris edge, where there were many BRIGS. Pirates were mending the broken REEFS. They made the boy High Lord CHAMBERlain, and his work PRESSED ON him heavily. The pirates would always drink very much RUM 'F they could get it. Every day Lee had to make some BREW. "ST1R it well and then let it set," were his orders. Whenever he ate an apple, they would say, "Give me the CORE, LEE." Every morning it was, "Get the BROOM, LEE," and in the evening, they would say, "Get the pipe and the STEM, SON." Then he would go and get a light and the chief would ask him, "How many WATTS, SON ?" If it were not exactly RIGHT he would have to go and get another. When this was done and had MAC DONE ALL his work, he could go to bed. But when he asked the pirates whether he could go home or not they would answer, " 'S WHEN SON T' Ruth had, meanwhile, regained consciousness, hut she and Lee had a quarrel, and Lee was again a FREEMAN. One day they would have tears and the next DAY FUSS. The pirates teased Lee about this and they would often say, "Where is your LASS, LEE?" Then Lee would say, 'LL ,US BE friends, l did not mean to RILE YE." But it was of no avail. Finally he made the best of it and shouted, "METHUSElah, but it feels good to be FREE! The town of Burtsl lay near byg and since their food supply was running low, the pirates decided to ROB BURTS of its bank BONDs and then buy food. They told LEE to ROB BINS of the corn but he refused. When the pirates were gone, Lee went up the mountain sideg but he soon returned, for he had seen Sir Kade and some of his friends. "l'lOYl" he cried to Ruth and Ray, i'Let's hurry up the hill before he sees us." They were too late, he saw IHERI. BREEzes were blowing so hard, that they could hardly stand up. "My, look at that MOB, LEE!" cried Ray. 4'Hey, SAL YER birds have flown the coop," sang the parrot outside the cave. They were now going up a steep cliff which extended farther than they could see.

NCLING MANW said his sister, but it was useless. Down through space he fell. He hit the ground with a thud. Ruth fell on top of him. He heard a rushing of feet and his mother spoke to him.

DUSK OF DAY Herbert Rutledge Southworth Dusk is falling, blood red is the western sky, Save where pierced by a long spear shaft of blue. Floating in the fleecy blue, Are the phantom memories. Rushing madly, my life passes before meg Faces long forgotten I see, Things long gone from my life. Then, as the drowning man clutches at a straw, Vainly I strive for a moment to reach them. And, as I ponder, Into the distance fades the blue As out of my life go the memories forever. Dusk has fallen, dull pink is the western sky.

It has ever been an easy task for promoters, enthusiastic chamber of com- merce secretaries and native sons to talk in attractive-but vague!-generalities about "God's Country," whether their subject was a bleak New England mountainside, or subterranean Florida real estate or waste lands beyond the Rockies. West Texas lays claim to no especial divine favors. She points, merely, to her ranges, from which come the world's standards for cattle. She points to the long tiers of her counties which produce a substantial portion of the world's cotton supply in freedom from the boll weevil menace. She points to her great farms, her magnificient wheat fields, her record as a kaffir and milo producer. She points to the huge bank deposits of her citizens, and, be- cause she has a sense of humor, she reads to you the fascinating fiction of a score of different "Gods Countriesw within the borders of these United States, while pointing to the flood of erstwhile inhabitants they each contribute monthly to the swelling W'est Texas population. West Texas points to her steadily multiplying new industries and to that trinity which attracts them-desirable land at reasonable purchase, abundant power at reasonable cost and superior labor at reasonable price, West Texas points to her reputation for hospitality, for proving herself and for carrying on.

If you like any particular part of this book, bestow the praise where it belongs, that is, upon the editor in charge of that particular partg if you dislike any part, cuss the Editor-in-Chief. Too much credit cannot be given to the Business Manager and his staff. They have handled the financial affairs very creditably and have accum- ulated the money which has made the publication of this book pos- sible. To Emmett Bryan, head of the art staff, goes the credit of having Worked faithfully, having made the book attractive from the standpoint of beauty, and having saved more money on art work than any previous artist. Besides the regular members of the staff, we are deeply indebted to Francis Finberg, Will Henry Haney, Francis Fry, Opal Roberts, Vernelle Stimson, Herbert Southworth, Eula Belle Wihittle, lloberta Turner, Dolly Louise Chambers, Her- man Corley, Josephine Gavin, Evalyn Swenson, William Swenson, Elbert Lasseter, Mrs. Smith, Miss Cristopher, Mrs. Norwood, and Miss Weaver for their faithful work and co-operation in editing this volume of the FLASHLIGHT. l do not wish to take advantage of this space to give vent to the time-worn and stereotyped laments of an editor. I have not burned a tremendous amount of midnight oil, neither have l grown gray nor torn my hair in anguish of worry. Of course it has necessi- tated some work, but I am still alive and am threatening to pass in some of my scholastic work. At last the printers seemingly insatiable thirst for copy has been satisfied, and all we have to do is wait a few weeks for the finished product. We have tried to present to you in the form of a history the accomplishments of the School of l924g this has been comparatively easy, for she has accomplished much. How well we have done this, you may judge for yourself. The time has come to part, and it is with mingled regret and relief that l put away the battered old type- writer and submit this, the last sheet of copy, to the printer, trust- ing that you will peruse the book with pleasure and point with pride in later years to l92l, the greatest year in the history of the greatest of all schools, Abilene High School.
