Well, l,ve been in Abilene High School for two years nowg so I decided to tell
you all about it. When I first came, I wanted to be popular, and I was going to get my
name in the Flashlight, the yearbook. You see all the clubs have pictures taken of
the members, and the names are under the pictures.
Well, as I wanted my name and picture in it, I proceded to join the Travel
Club. In the course of my travels to visit clubs, the F. F. A. was the first to hold
a meeting. Guess what? It was a boys' club and, added to that, a farmers, club.
The next clubs I visited were the Defessi Aeneadae and the Excelsior. Thinking
these names sounded like nice gossipy clubs, I was very much disappointed to find
they were language clubs. You should have heard them sling Latin around. I
think it was Latin, but it was all Greek to me. Although in the course of my
travels I visited the Glee Clubs, I didn't care to join them. lim really too modest.
Could my ears deceive me or was it Patrick Henry I heard? No, only one
of the members of the Debate and Forensic delivering an oration. Being interested
in dramatics, I found Ye Little Players and Back 0'Curtain very fascinating clubs.
As I was not a senior I decided to leave the G an G to look out for themselves, and as
Home Economics club seemed to have a delicious odor coming from their door, I
went in only to find they offered me nothing to eat. The Band and Orchestra didn't
seem to appreciate my talents and neither did the N. H. S., as neither club asked me
to join them. Having never been to Spain, the three Spanish clubs didn't appeal to
me, as they wiggled their tongues in such a strange manner. I was told that if I
wanted to dig to visit the Archaeology, but since I don't even like to spade the
garden and since I have no personality, I decided to leave both the Archaeology
and Personality Girls alone.
Soon I heard a lot of klicking and noise in Freshman Alley, and learned a club
was there. I went in. Imagine how l felt when I was informed that I was too noisy
to stay in that noisy club. I desired very much to remain in the club because by
reading the Battery I had learned that they had won many honors. Last year they
won every contest they entered, besides first and second in State contest, first, third,
set a new state record and hope to do the

Anyhow, now I'm sure of a picture in the Flashlight, so if I get enough money
to buy two annuals, Illl send you one. I'll try to get in the front row in order that
you won't miss me.
