Alas! our school days will soon soon he rfer:
We shall tread these halls
No more shall we altend a class,
1For we already have attended oar las! I.
No more shall are enjoy the chapel hour
Or the songs we have sang o'er and o'er.
Nor shall we rush from school at noon,
And hasten back perhaps too soon,
Shall we hasten out at the fire drill r
Or complain to Mrs. Bradley that we are ill?
Hut Ah! In detention we will slay,

In Loving Memory of
MISS INA DAVIS
"There is one Goff, one lam, one element,
And one jar 06 divilze event
To which the whole creation movesfz
MISS DAVIS, teacher of history, passed from life October 9, 1923, after six years
of continuous service in the ABILENE HIGH SCHOOL. As a teacher her work will live
in the broader vision of those she so carefully trained. As a friend she was 'true and
faithful, giving her confidence cautiously, yet when given, it was Iirm and constant.
Her moral courage was of the type that held strong and fearless in the martyr age.
"The soft memory of her virtues yet lingers like the sunset hues after the bright sun

.fls the Senior Class looks from the battlefield,
Where the victory she has won,
To the ,Qght that is now before her,
She perceives she has just begun.
She determines to fight and to conquerg
She deceives herself no more
By thinking the work behind her
Was harder than that before.
KI've just come to real work," she tells herself,
H.4nd I intend to do that work right,
So that when I die, my friends may say,
4She has really fought a good fight.,
HI have tried to do what I could for my school,
Though that share seems small indeed,
So please just remember as you look at it,
That I couldn,t do less than succeed.
NSo now I must put on my armor
And go out to the fight that's before.
Adieu, dear old High School,
Best wishes, from the Class of 724-.

THE STUDENT ASSOCIATION
The Student Association was reorganized for the year on October 2, 1923. 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! Your pep! You've got it, now keep itg dog-

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,
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

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

The question for debate this yearfflesolved, That the United
States should join the League of Nationsfhas proved a very interest-
ing subject, and has aroused greater enthusiasm in the student body
than any other question we ever have had.
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. We were defeated
by a 5-0 vote of the judges in both debates. A return debate with
Oak Cliff in Dallas is scheduled for some date in Marehg a debate
with Desdemona here, February 8, and offers have been made by
Mineral Wells, Weatllerford, and Breckenridge.

Home Economics Club
ESTA OLIVER . . . President

PAYE LUSBY . . Secretary
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.

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.

The purpose of the society is to give to
the students who have no opportunity, out-
side of school, experience in appearing be-
fore an audience. The society is divided
into two sections, .lunior and Senior, each
of which furnishes programs at the so-
ciety meetings. Many interesting read-
ings, orations and musical numbers have
been given during the year. A study in
parliamentary law with senior boys in
charge has proved to be the most instruc-
tive program offered.
During the second term the same work
is being carried on under the direction of

ABILENE 7-STAMFORD 0
The initial game of the season, played with Stamford, was a terrific struggle, the score 7-0
showing in a measure, the fierceness of the combat. 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

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.

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. Steve was not the only one
to do stellar playing, however, for Bounds, Dub, Chile, and Pete all came in for their share of
the honors. Mason and Boyd starred for Comanche.

ABILENE 104.-DUBLIN 0
We smashed the Dublin aggregation by the top-heavy score of 104--0. 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.

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.

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

they thought they had a football teamf, By teamwork and a better knowledge of football in all
its stages, the Eagles smothered Breckenridge by 3 score of 74-0.
The Green and White warriors were able to make only one first down during the entire
game fthis was done in the last minute of play on a forward passl while the Abilene team made
a total of thirty-three first downs. The Oil City crew fought hard, but they were overwhelmed
by the Eagles, offensive, but even so, a good many breaks were against the Green and White.
Abilene, who took the offensive in the first part of the game and kept it the greater part of the
time, pushed across a touchdown in the first four minutes of play. During the fourth quarter,
when all the subs were in the game, and they were pushing across touchdowns almost at will a
Breckenridge man was heard to say, HAbilene has seven backfield men! and each one of them is
about as good as the other,"

ABILENE 19-CISCO 7
Every football team has its off day, the day we met Cisco was our "Friday l3." 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. He was brought down on the 5-yard line, and on the fourth down the Lobos pushel

The Eagles were unable to score during the third period, and it surely did look dark for a
while. But in the fourth quarter, the Eagles came back with the fight that has won for us many yi '
a time when everything else had failed, and carried the pigskin across Cisco's goal line twice.
The final whistle blew just as we brought our score up to 19.

ABILENE 53-STEPHENVILLE 0 Z
For four times in as many consecutive years Abilene has been the undisputed champion of 94
District 3. 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. 'iffy
The main event of the day came when Steve thrilled the crowd as he side-stepped, dodged,
and stiff-armed his way sixty-four yards for a touchdown. Although the stands were filled with
Stephenville rooters-for the game was played at Stephenville-he was given a mighty cheer,

yfffbt ninety-five points in less than three quarters, a feat accomplished for the second time this season.
It is not intended to cast any reflection on the Fort Stockton team, but it must be admitted that they
were so far outclassed by our warriors that they hardly furnished us scrimmage practice. As ,
evidence of this fact, Fort Stockton was able to make only nine yards during the entire game, and Q
W2 a first down was out of the question. if!
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. By winning this game, we won the championship of Dis-
tricts 3 and 7. fr

life By defeating the Golden Sandstorm, we annexed to our list of victories the championship fr
of Districts 1 and 2. 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. V

Thus Abilene lost her only chance of scoring during the initial quarter. 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.

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
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.

The Eagles screamed and sank their talons deep into the Tigers' fleshg the Tigers roared,
If bit, and scratched, but the Eagles came out victoriousi by three scratches. By defeating the QQ
gi Tigers, the Eagles gained revenge for the defeat suffered at the Tigers' claws last year. Qi
ft The scene of this memorable battle was on the muddy, rain-soaked, grid-iron of the Fair

14 5 for for four years.
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

As early as January there were a few men working the kinks out of their mus-
cles, but track practice proper, under the direction of Coach Shotwell, did not start
until the latter part of February.
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.
ff TENNI -
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.

Baseball practice under the direction of Coach Adams started March the first.
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.

ueer Old Diana
O Diana, goddess of the moon and of the chase,
Why dost thou stand forever in that same old place,
And act, and look, and seem so queer,
And not at all like most of us here?
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?

The annual affair which follows the Army-Navy game was given
at the Parish House, October the sixth. 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.

attractiveness of the program. Of special note was the excellent
work done by those taking the principal parts. The dramatic work
was exceedingly well directed by Miss Myrtle Trantham.

FOOTBALL BOX PARTY
To none other than the Majestic at Dallas was afforded the
pleasure of being the first to have as guests the members of the
victorious football team from the West. 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. No form of
entertainment in recognition of their enviable achievement could
have been enjoyed more.

When the fudge and the Cowboys made merry for all."

PRIZE WINNING STORY tif
, by .
P ernelle Samson I,
The last day for practice had arrived, Tomorrow the big game was on. 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
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
There was a whistle, and the players gathered about Coach. He spoke in quiet tones of 41
'Alf every man goes into the game with his mind made up to win, we CAN'T lose."
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."
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

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

unexcelledg and its shining light was a large. cream-colored building on an attractive campus,
enfolded in clouds of blue and gold, A double sidewalk surrounded the campusg trees and flowers
grew in abundance. 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-
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!"
"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.

THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE
A poor little freshman prepared to climb a tree,
He opeld his eyes to see what he could see.
On one high limb an English book dangled,
"What,s that?" quoth he. afust something new fangled-
I think Iall leave that outf,
So he started to climb on the other side,
A slim little algebra book, he saw with pride,
Thinking, 'cThat I can managen, but when xls and yls began hitting
He picked up his dinner pail and began his wild flight,
Saying, HI think I'll leave that outf,
From the tree of knowledge, he fled to an apple tree,
He picked up an apple, he mastered it well,
Thought he, "Why not follow the example of Adam and Eve
And let the tree of knowledge go to --ug
fThat last thought he should have left outf.
For the same thought he voiced to his Ma,
Who got a switch from the same apple tree, and told Pa.
Too late he saw his folly, but the pain he felt,
The next time he found himself at the tree of knowledge, he helt
And didn't leave nothin, out.

From us did hide his face away.

GEMS FROM THE PEN OF
HERBERT RUINJT LEDGE S O UTH WORTH
TO A MOUSE
There once was a mouse of adventurous mien.
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
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'

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

his YOUNG mule was. The mule was CALLED WELL. Lee went to see the PARSON'S daugh-

studious man, and had written a book entitled l'What is the SOUTH WORTH-an Accurate Ac-

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

process for him. Also the fish was without a FIN. BERGs were floating around in the BOG OR
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
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. Ruth had

himself. Again he slipped and was hanging by a root which was gradually slipping.
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

MORAL-If your girl is a detriment to you, cast her off before she pulls you down.
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.

A half decade ago, West Texas was the Southwest's last frontier. Today, if
West Texas is beginning to come into her own. Rich in present and prospective
possibilities, rich in soil, rich in climate, and above and beyond all else, rich
in the sturdy Anglo-Saxonism of her people, West Texas is fast developing
into one of Americais finest empires.
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
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.
And finally, with her proudest flourish, West Texas points
to the fact that she has macle "Going Westv worth while

Milo err is humang to forgive divinef, If we have been human,
we trust that you will be as divine as We have been otherwise.
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.
