By 1878 practically all the buffalo had either been killed or had moved to new feed- ing grounds. Buffalo Gap is credited with having the first store, a stock of general merchandise. The settlers of this vicinity still cling to the historic background of the of the buffalof, THE FLASHLIGHT 1935 4 5 1 hnu In 1877 the plains of West Texas were dot- ted by long caravans of covered wagons with German settlers winding their way westward to the land of opportunity-Eagle City. These mile-wide caravan trails, of which the first was Center Line, are historic landmarks in the settlement of Taylor County.

After taking all their money, Coldwater left the settlers stranclecl in this new country. Discouragecl, some returned to the Eastg others unwilling to go back, scattered over Taylor County. Thus Eagle City flourished hardly a year. From this first settle-ment Taylor County grew into a great shipping center. THE FLASHLIGHT PUBLISHED BY THE STUDENTS UF ABILENE HIGH SCHDUL ABILENE, TEXAS 1936 We dedicate this 1936 Flashlight to MISS IJUIDA CLEMDN5 daughter of a pioneer West Texan. She re- flects the enterprising spirit of her pioneer ancestors and has been a benefiting factor in t h e development o f music in the commu- nity as Well as in the school. As a member of the faculty she has done outstanding work in promoting g o o d E n g l i s h, good Will, g o o d fellowship, and good music. Every student holds in his heart the utmost re- spect and love for her and a genuine admira- tion f o r h e r enthusi- asm, sincerity, and ser- vice. l FDREWURD It is the desire of the staff that the 1936 Flashlight may reveal interesting f a c t s con- cerning Taylor County ancl record the famil- iar s c e n e s of school life. As t h e work of the p io n e e r settlers grows dim in your memory, we hope that this book will recall vividly to y 0 u r mind the achievements made by early settlers of your county. The County, found- ed in 1858, was named for Edward Taylor, a brave and sturdy citi- zen. The buffalo hunt- ers, the first white peo- ple attracted t o t h i s county, were soon fol- lowed by cattlemen having as their leader Sam Gholson who came in 1874. He was followed by such men as Parramore, Merchant, S i m p s o n, Berry, Hughes, Rad- ford, and Paxton. 4 .v i""' A 8 iii, ,Q ij: 1 f 5- 1, if esflliiffiat 'f'iQf t K rj' ii? 8 a ,, Y , ,mi 'A' f ' , -- u .Z f ',1' 2 Zfirwf iiiii X .af !f'11l fi, X25 f,-V 5' ,Ji - Vg' Vila" x yf 1,77 X1 if if f f f ,M ff 'Jr J ",ififF' L We f f fV rT?f f fi r w,,4,,,f,,ar nf as 8 t Af' ' AP" ip:-54 if ,Y ,ffl I K , V X fr I If '-jf' ,, ff J , I , UA?

GREEN N THIS year 1936, when all Texas is Centennial-minded, it behooves you to look ' hack at the great figures in the history of our Lone Star State, to recognize their worth, and to emulate their virtues. The men of the past believed in themselves and had a vision of a great commonwealth Which they would found and hand dow11 to you to perfect. It is your part to profit hy their example and to remain loyal to their ideals. Go forth and build for yourselves and others a new TeXas4unified, progressive, and democratic-a state to which men may point With pride, not merely glorifying in the breadth and Width of its territory, its boundless Wealth, and scenic attraction hut justly exulting in its worthy citizenship, that is excelled by no other state in the Union.

You have been forging and testing the bonds of friend- ship during your four years here. The enduring qualities and the value of those friends you have made here will be proved repeatedly through the years. There is one type of friendship that a teacher prizes highly-that of teacher and pupil. It brings me immeasurable pleasure to feel that I can number the students of our school as friends that will endure. The smile of greeting and the cheery word fill my heart with thankfulness that I have been permitted to work with you through your high school days.

This also served as a Baptist Church. It was built of lumber and was a long, rambling two-room building. The grades were from the first to high schoolg but they stopped there, and it became necessary to build a high school. An old warehouse on First and Sycamore was bought during the year 1887. The girls of that school heard about the eastern seminary schoolsg so they named it the "Beer and lce Seminaryw because beer and ice were sold at the warehouse before it was con- verted into a school building. The chief pastime of the school boys and girls was to watch the 'gBohtail" train come in every day at eleven oiclock. Source: Mrs. T. .l. Edins. -MACK WARNER. IN 1889 when the citizens of Abilene felt they could get along no longer without a high school, they tried to raise the money by selling bondsg but they were unsuc- cessful. The cash could not be secured in this method, so scrip was sold. The leading business men were asked to buy this city scrip, which could not ever be cashed. Nearly all of these generous pioneers respondedg they were glad of the chance to provide a place to educate their children. The building was considered the finest in this section and stood where the present high school building is. About the same time in 1890 it was suggested to the pastor of the First Baptist Church that it would be a fine thing if there were a Baptist college in Abilene. The matter was referred to the Sweetwater Association and was approved. Several towns bid for the school, but Abilene won with a bid of five thousand dollars and a location of sixteen acres of land. The location was furnished by O. W. Steffens and George Phillips, and the money was to be furnished by the city of Abilene. There were only about three thousand three hundred people in Abilene, and five thousand dollars was a great deal of money to raise. The merchants gave the scrip that they had bought to build the high school to Abilene so that Abilene Baptist College might be built. Thus, the same money was used to build two great educational institutions. Source: George S. Anderson. ' -MARY ELIZABETH AIKEN.

Our human hearts Are deeply wrapped in gloomg But she, secure, Has passed into another room Where hearts are always glad and pure FEATH ER CHAI N fFirst prize-winning poem in Poetry Contest at Beltonj Out of the west Shadows slipped Over a ridge Pastel-tipped. Alone on the porch, In childish awe, An old man stood And blinked and saw His life a blurred Horizon Reaching to blue Oblivion. As the smoke crawled out Of the chimney top, A grey hawk spun From a dizzy drop. Then his mental trail Was as fancy-free As the hawk that perched In an old oak tree. Again he yielded To a vague unrest That stirred long ago In his vagabond breast. . . Down by the cow pen, Cane in hand, He dragged a lame foot Through the sand. His footprints pointed Past the scrub mesquite Where a dry creek bed And the old oak meet. Then the hawk climbed up Into laddered space, Spilling a shadow On the old man's face. Wheeling aloft, It found a height Where its wings could spread With the wings of night. And the old man stared 'Till his watered eyes Saw a black speck melt Into sandy skies. Then his palsied hand Closed around A feather picked From the flinty ground. His daughter scolded And looked amazed, But he grinned at attention That his absence raised, For he had forged a chain With a grey hawk's feather That linked old age And youth together! -MARVIN MILLER.

Some of the best players were girls, but the boys often batted for them. The game, somewhat like the baseball of today, was played with a bat, which was usually home- made, and a rubber ball. Even the old folks, sitting on the sidelines, watched the action with interest and gave their loyal support. ATHLETICS H.

Mayhew, head coach of Abilene High School, has led the Eagle team to athletic prominence for eight years. He learned his game of football with the ever-powerful team of West Point and brought to us the fruit of his labors there. Mayhew has the knack of hewing finely finished products from the raw materials at hand. He is a disciple of the effective rough and tumble coaching school, demanding respect and co-operation from his pupils. Also the coach firmly believes that HPrac- tice makes perfectf, His teams run from the short punt formation with a balanced line. As a man, he is modest concerning his own achievements and is always ready with helpful criticism for others. As a coach he ranks among the best of high school directors. Mayhew has a reputation as an exceedingly just coach and man, and stresses fair play even before the game. . Since the fall of l927kwhen Coach Mayhew came to Abilene from Marlin--- through his fine work in producing outstanding Eagle teams he has done practically as much to make the name of Abilene known abroad as have the combined industries of the town.

MURPHY HOWARD L. MILLER EDWARD S. MURPHY Edward S. Murphy is assistant football coach and does most of his work with the line. He teaches in the commercial department of the school and is liked so well that he was brought back to Abilene High School after having spent two years at Austin High in El Paso. Pat is a former football player himself. He played quarter- back for the Eagles during the days when Mr. Shotwell was coach at A. H. S. and was one of the best players the school has seen. Mr. Murphy does his work in such a way and in such a spirit that those associated with him think he is Ntopsv. HCWARD L. MILLER Howard Lee Miller, head coach of the Abilene cage quintet and Mayhew's assist- ant on the grid, came from Winters three years ago to roost in the Eagles, Nest. During his high school days he played guard on .an A. H. S. team, and then at McMurry was twice all-conference and once captain during his three years of playing. Miller likes his work and does it well. His pupils like him and respect his ability. His cheerful words of encouragement send each Eagle eager out to the game to win. This year Milleris team won their half and lost the district title in a close match. Seventy two lhln Kim '9 fill Haifa: 945.331 NJ if 1355.5-.'Ti' 'ig ' . X l 'sd- ass X V.

Christian back to Abilene to coach the Eagle speedsters, the track team, and the freshman football and basketball teams. This, however, is the last time the first-year men out for athletics will find ,lack Christian's encouraging smile to greet them when they report for practice. Next fall, after four years in the Eagles' Nest, Christian begins in his new position as head coach of Colorado High School. Lucky fellows-those gridsters! We are sorry to lose such a good man from the coaching staff, but here's to ,lack Christian's cou- tinued rise! CULLEN E. WILLIS ULLEN E. WILLIS is an assistant to Jack Christian in the coaching of the future first-team football men of Abilene High School. Mr. Willis came to us from one of the elementary schools of the city, and though he has been here only a short time, his pleasant manner has won him many friends. IKE W. JAY IKE W. JAY serves in the same capacity as Mr. Willis does with the football team. Mr. ,lay came to Abilene High School at the first of the 1934-1935 term, and as time goes by, he is winning more friends, as one can but admire such a man if thrown in contact with him.

The Steers scored on a plunge and a pass and made both extra points. The Eagles scored on a plunge by Cumpton, a pass from Couch to Moser, and the interception of a Steer pass by Moser. The Eagles won their first home game by defeating Sweetwater 27 to 0. They scored on a pass from Couch to Moser and Cumpton kicked the point. Cumpton took the ball over from the 3-yard line early in the fourth quarter. Moser made the remaining two touchdowns on runs, and the extra 'points were made after both. The Eagles came home from San Angelo on the short end of a 13 to 7 score. The game was featured by the defensive work of San Angelo. The Angeloans made their scores on a blocked punt and an 18-yard run, an aftermath of a. pass interception. The Eagles made their score late in the fourth quarter after a pass from King to McCormick took the ball down to the 4-yard line, and King went over from there. Final score: 13-7. The Eagles and the Lubbock Westerners fought to a 7 to 7 tie for the second successive year. The Westerners made the touchdown early in the game after an Abilene fumble, and McClinton kicked the extra point.

Abilene made many long gains by passing but were never able to bunch enough gains to make the necessary yardage for a score. The Eagles lost to a tough team, which later became district champions.

Coach lVliller's proteges entered their first tournament at Abilene Christian College and advanced to the finals by winning over Anson 26-19 and Breckenridge 26-22, but losing to Mozelle in the final game. The stage of the Eagles next competition was at Merkel in the playoff for their half of the district. ln this crucial tournament the Warbirds beat Tuscola 22-17 in the elimination game of the tournament and took Peacock 16-14 in the final game. ln the playoff for the district title the Eagles lost to the Eorsan Buffaloes in a three- game series. The Forsan-Abilene series was a home and home affair Abilene going there and losing 29-38 and then turning the tables by winning in the Eagle Nest in the second game by the score of 27-25. The sad tale was when Abilene played the third game in Forsan and lost the game, series, and district crown by two points. Even though the Eagles lost the district title, due credit must be given Coach Miller for his fine coaching, which is shown by the record of winning eleven games out of twenty and winning one tournament and advancing to the finals in another. The Eagles hope for an even more successful season next year with four returning letter- men and many promising squad men returning to carry on where this year's team left off. Eighty ' -.

Odell de- served this honor in every way. He was the sparkplug of the team-always full of pep and vitality, which was instilled into the other members of the team when he was in the game. Odell is an all-round athlete being a football, basketball, and track man, and has Worked hard and endeavored to do his best in all of these sports.

HE Eagle track team began training in the early part of March with about twenty- five prospects reporting to ,lack Christian at the gymnasium. The squad worked out inside the gymnasium for quite a while before they were taken out to the practice field, near the school building. Jogging and calisthenics were the main things done on the practice field, and when the time came to go to the stadium to practice, the boys were in fairly good shape. With only one letterman, J. D. Tidwell, from last yearis squad returning, the prospects of going very far looked slim, but after training at the stadium for a while under the fine coaching of ,lack Christian and Coach Mayhew, the Eagle track team shaped into .a serious threat for the district crown. At the start of the season the Eagles planned to enter the Fat Stock Show, Abilene Christian College Invitation, Texas Relays, and the lnterscholastic League meets, but plans for attending the Texas Relays were dropped. The team entered the others, and if good enough, they will go to the Regional and then to the State Meet.

BOYS hen the call for boys, tennis was issued by H. S. Fatherree, many -aspirants to the team reported, among whom was only one letterman, Maurice Fincher. After steady practice the team developed into fairly good form. ln the District Meet Maurice Fincher won first place by defeating Garvin Beauchamp of Roby in the final match, 6-1, 6-1, 6-3. Fincher advanced to the finals by defeating Boswell of Coahoma in the semifinals 6-2, 6-1. Fincher is a high ranking player in the Texas Inter- scholastic League, having won state in doubles last year when teamed with Kendall Jones. If Fincher survives the Regional Meet, he has an excellent chance at the state singles crown. The Abilene doubles team reached the semifinals but were ' defeated there by Big Spring. Leon Reese and Buster Lynch, the doubles combina- tion, beat Sweetwater 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the quarter-finals. Eighty-four S Q ' 2 f f?

The Eagles sent only one girl to the District Meet, and she was eliminated in the first round. The Eagles hope for a better team next year with Bertie Smith, Bee Agnew, and Betty Burns Williams returning. Next year the team should be much improved because this year's play gave the girls first- hand experience, and they played quite a few practice tournaments with surrounding schools. This is the first year that Miss Grant has coached the tennis team,. but next year she plans to spend more time and will give them more opportunities for practice. Eighty-five in .r . , m Y.-. V-1.

Second Row: Lavelle Hay, Floy Bratton, Miss Glenna Faye Grant, Roma Sparks, Louise Fox. A HEN the call for volley ball was issued there were many girls to report at the gymnasium, among whom were four girls from last yearis squad. Miss Glenna Faye Grant, who stayed many long tiresome evenings of practice, rounded the girls into a well developed smooth-playing volley ball team. This is proved by their downing a picked volley ball squad from the boys classes. On Saturday, April 4, the team traveled to Sweetwater to take part in the lnterscholastic League volley ball contest for the district crown. At Sweetwater the Eagle team played six games, winning four and losing two. In this contest a team had to lose two games to be eliminated from the tournament, and the Eagle team had to play Roscoe, the winning team, twice to be eliminated. Even though the Abilene team did not reach the finals, it was runner-up and received a fitting trophy for this, which was placed in the trophy case. With four of this yearls team back next year, it looks as if the Eagle volley ball team has an excellent chance of bringing back the cup for district crown next year.

There is a regular system of gymnasium classes conducted for the girls by Miss Glenna Faye Grant. ln these classes the girls are taught to do many things, among which are soccer, volley ball, tumbling, baseball, and other indoor and outdoor activities. Miss Grant has spent much of the spring season in teaching all classes tap dancing. During the current school year the gym classes presented in the gymnasium a pageant which was very entertaining, and each year the combined gym classes have in the Road Show an act which consists of tumbling, pyramid building, and such. The girls' classes meet every day in the week except odd Fridays. During warm Weather the classes go outside and conduct sports, at which time they practice their baseball and soccer.

The boots knocked on the pine woody the dresses swished the dust from the floor. The affair was an elaborate one! It might have been a platform dance for the Fourth of July, or a cowboys' Christmas ball at the old Windsor Hotel.

The annual blends the history and accomplishments of the past years into a permanent record for Abilene High School. The staff held a picnic as a climax to a very interesting year's work and as a celebra- tion of the annu.al's going to press.

HUNTER, a new teacher in Abilene High School, brought with him the idea of a Junior Science club. At the beginning of the winter term such club was organized only for students who were beginners in science. During the club periods the members discussed and reported on things that they had heard, read, or discovered concerning scientific topics and events and modern inventions. To add to these dis- cussions picture slides were shown, and during one club meeting the organization was entertained with an appropriate talk on the study and care of the teeth by a prominent dentist of Abilene. Although the club continued only during the first term, the members gained much helpful knowledge in the introduction of science. Ninety-eight QNX ' - fx .. :. will " ':Q"-' ii1it5??

Merchant and Stoddard Johnson, is the result of the need of a town on the Texas and Pacific Railroad. The first settlers caine in 1876 and pitched their tents in the iniddle of the prairie, which was inhabited by hundreds of prairie dogs, wild turkeys, and antelope. The first sale of town lots, which sold at prices froin fifteen cents to twenty-five dollars, was on March 15, 1881. The busi- ness section of early Abilene was composed of a group of tent stores and a few shachs. After Abilene becaine the county seat in 1888, it grew and pros- pered into the "Capital of West Texas" with a population of more than 252000.

J. Haynes, Presbyterian ministers. Ten or fifteen thousand dollars was raised, and the college was under the supervision of the Buffalo Gap and San Saba presbyteries. J. N. Ellis was the first president, W. H. White, second president, and J. M. Wagstaff the third president. The rapid growth of public schools killed the college. The session of 1889-90 was the most flourishing. The architect was J. H. Deaver. Graduations were 'aexhibitionsf' The schoolhouse at Caps was called Borderis Chapel because Ira Border gave an acre of land for the site. At first the post-office was in Mrs. Millikenls house and was called L'Caps" for a family named Capps. In the early days much of the town was on the south side. There were no picture shows, so everyone within thirty miles came to see the circuses. The circus grounds were between Catclaw and Cedar Creeks, and between North Twelfth and the railroad. This was a low, swamp land. W. R. ALLISON H. B.

From the small rented building with five clerks to take care of everything, this business has grown to a two-story building with about sixty employees. 'In 1878 the first step was taken toward local self-government in Buffalo Gap. The settlers bought an old two-story building from M. W. Northington for a courthouse. The jail was on the second floor of this building. Starting in a very small way in the mercantile business in Abilene in 1903, T. C.

CUT OF TI-IE DREAMS OF YESTERDAY UT of the dreams of yesterday are fashioned today's realities. Behind every great human achievement, pressing every step in the onward march of human progress, has towered the vision of some man or some group of men. Dreams have builded empires. Dreams have spanned oceans, and settled continents. Dreams have sunk deep shafts into the earth and thrust majestic spires into the sky. Dreams, since time immemorial, have been the potential power whereby mankind has raised himself above the level of a meager existence. Out across the tawny prairies of West Texas where yesterday's wandering winds whipped up the dust from the scoring hoofs of a million buffalo, the dreams of a sun-tanned cow-puncher sitting his saddle on the rock crowned brow of a lonely hillside, pictures a teeming civilization. And today the dream unfolds into reality. Comparatively, it was only yesterday that the dreams of a group of builders visioned West Texas served by an interconnected elec- tric transmission system that would bring an industrial awaken- ing and give a new freedom in conveniences and comfort to thous- ands of West Texas homes. The proof of the realization of these dreams is evident on every hand. Without dreams and visions civilization can not advance. The education that you are receiving today should greatly aid you to make your dreams come true!

The reason there were no Indians in the late seventies was that the buffalo hunters killed all the buffalo and there was no meat for the red men. COMPLIMENTS OF sEARs,RoEBucK AND o.
