By ESTHER FRENCH
Well does the class of '19 remember that sunny September morning when it
made its first entrance into A. H. S. It came one hundred and twelve strong, and
the upper classmen marveled at its great size as the lower classmen now marvel at
its great achievement.
The class of '19 has always led in all school activities. In athletics our men have
made an enviable record, six of them being wearers of the A. Six of our men hold
oflices in the boys' Cadet organization and many of the officers in the girls' Cadet
organization are Seniors, the major being a member of our class. In glee club and
orchestra too, the brilliancy of the class shines forth. Most of the music is fur-
nished by Senior talent. Did they come out for debate? Yes! Half the debaters
were Seniors. Hazel Royer, the veteran debater of the class, won an A for debate
when a Junior but she came back as captain of one of the teams this year. Pep is
the keynote of the class. Three other Seniors have Won A's in debate. The class of
'19 has been equally zealous in patriotic work. Every member of the class belongs
to the Junior Red Cross organization. To emphasize our spirit of patriotism, we
can proudly say ours was the first class to attain one hundred per cent membership
in the Junior Red Cross., Uur girls took a lively interest in the patriotic league and
much relief work was done. When the Y. M. C. A. called for support no one
slacked and calls of this kind were always generously answered. The class of '19
can well be proud of the record made by the boys who left school in answer to
Uncle Sam's call to the Colors. They are Chester VanDoren, Walter White, Harold
Jordan and Everett Stephens. Such loyalty is a true reflection of the ideals of our
boys. One of the eight gold stars on our school service Hag represents a classman
who made the supreme sacrifice for his country.
Do not get the impression that the Seniors know only of work. Socially we are
wide awake. The originality of the class is most marked by some of the clever
stunts which were carried out at our parties. At the first Senior party the boys
entertained the girls, keeping all their plans secret. The main feature of the even-
ing was "Friday Afternoon at a Country School," a performance staged by the
Senior boys, wherein many of the girls were permitted to see themselves as others
see them. The girls in turn entertained the boys at a Valentine party. The room
was appropriately decorated for the event and all the stunts were very original.
In this brief summary of our High School career we wish to pay due tribute to
our sponsors who have so kindly advised us and helped us to surmount the many
difficulties which came across our pathway.

"A married man I soon will be,"
Said Senior Stanley Engle,
But the girl he loved has turned him down
And now he's living single.
"I think I'll be a lady barber,"
Said Senior Hazel Royer,
She didn't seem to do it right
And now she is a lawyer.
"I'll marry a little music teacher,"
Said Senior Gerald Shadinger,
But now he's a divorced and lonely man
Because he could't manage her.
"I'm going to be a city mayor,"
Said Senior Galen Nickels,
But now he works in a canning factory
And measures out the pickles.
"I'm going to sail the deep blue sea,"
Said Senior Ralph M. Gish,
It was all right until he sailed
And started feeding the fish.
"I'll be a model house wife,"
Said Senior Esther French,
"God bless our home," will be my motto
When my hero's home from the trench.
"I'm going to be an architect,"
Said Senior Raymond Kehler,
So he got to work and studied hard
And then he built a cellar.
"I'm going to write some poetry,"
Said Senior Edna Robson,
Her inspiration didn't work
And so she married a farmer's son.
"l'm going to be a politician," S
Said Senior Arlene Brown,
She got the job and held it down
As curfew ringer in a one horse town.
"1 think I'll be a vampire cruel,"
Said Senior Susie Kyle
"And all the men will fall for me
Because they like my smile."

J unior Write-Up
e ' By HENRIETTA DAVIS
With apologies to Ring Lardner and E Streeter
Dear Friend Al:
Well, Al, I am sure surprised to ,hear you have one of them Crow de Gears and
got kissed on both cheeks by some frenchman or other. Well, I guess you sure
earned that Crow de Gear, but say, Al, that frenchman, he earned one too. Ha,
Ha. Pretty good, eh, Al? Humor, that's me all over. Of course, Al, you think
you've got a great honor deferred upon you. But now I got a honor that puts yours
in a class with post-cards that your Sunday School teacher gives you for being good
in her class. .
This is what my honor is: My class that is going to quit coming to school next
year came and asked me if I would write an article all about them that was going to
be put in the Annual for everybody to read. Of course, I know you not being
literary, Al, don't know what a big honor that is. But I will admit I deserved to
have it given to me, Al. Literary. That's me all over, Al. I
Of course, to look at some of the grades my teacher that teaches me my Eng-
lish has gave to me, a person might say that I had better not try to earn my salt by
literature. But I guess I understand why that is, eh, Al? Broad, that's me all over
Al. Of course my teacher couldn't cause no kind of hard feelings by showing prefer-
ence. Tacked, that's her all over, Al.
I suppose, of course, Al, you want to know about what all I wrote so I will tell
you what I wrote. The style in these write-ups like I am sposed to write is to show
that your own class is the bigest, best looking, smartest, peppiest class that ever
drove a teacher to drink-soda water. And say, Al, to read some of them write-ups
about debate, appleptics, society, glee-club and everything a person would think
that President Wilson, Ty Cobb, Mrs. Styvesant Fish, Mrs. Shoemanhink, Curusa
and all of them birds might as well throw up a shoe-shinning parlor or sumpthing.
Of course, Al, our class, we don't have to waste any time telling about how
smart we are or anything on account of what the poet said that "talking gathers no
moss," "action is the best policy." Modest, that's us all over, Al. On account of
us being so modest, Al, I'm not going to say anything about our six men in applep-
tise, our eight song birds in glee club, our two debaters, or our three in orchestra,
and so forth. ,
Well, Al, of course you are awful anxious to know what it was that I wrote in
that article. This is what I wrote. It is potry, Al.
This good old class of 1920,
Of honors and laurals it's a plenty:
Altho we own a modest blush,
And fear this sounds like slush and mushy
Yet we know we're teachers' pride and joy
And when it comes to pep, Oh, Boy! ' i
Not so bad, eh, Al. I don't suppose any of the rest will wish that they belonged
to a class like ours. Oh, no! H
Respectfully your affectionate friend,

After being able to claim the state championship the past two years, the 1918
football team met with hard luck. The epidemic of influenza broke the football
season up so that nothing could be accomplished. This year's football season can be
compared to the favors used at the annual football banquet-"Half grown infants."
The season, on account of the "Hu," was only "half-grown." Our new coach, who
had coached the team which had won the Texas State Championship for the past
three years, had the task of developing new men to fill the places of the six letter
men who had graduated last yearg and later the end position left vacant by the leav-
ing of Everett Stephens to join the motor transport corps.
The season started on our home field with Clay Center as our opponents. Clay
Center had an exceptionally fast team and Abilene went down to defeat by a score
of 20 to 0. In order to get a return game with Clay Center we had to play them
the following Fridav, which did not give the team much time to strengthen the
weak places discovered in the first game. The team went to Clay Center with the
determination to win, and after lighting in dust up to their ankles, came out with a
0 to 0 score. Manhattan came the first Friday school was opened, after being
closed three and a half weeks because of the influenza. As Manhattan had only won
one game of football from Abilene since the two teams had competed, they were de-
termined to win the game. Manhattan's team outweighed our team twenty pounds
to the man but our boys put up a hard fight and took the short end of a 13 to 7
score. The Junction City game the following Friday was a victory for our boys.
Our attention was then turned to the Minneapolis game which was played the fol-
lowing Friday, although school was closed on Wednesday because of the influenza.
The Minneapolis team, like the Manhattan team, outweighed us, but we overcame
this disadvantage by speed. Both teams started the game with a rush. The Min-
neapolis team made their gains by line bucks while Abilene made her gains by short
end runs and forward passes. The game ended with a score of 6 to 6. This ended
the 1918 football season, as the Thanksgiving game had to be cancelled because of
Only eleven men received letters this year. They are: Little, Rauch, Shadinger,
Kraybill, Smith, Rose, Romberger, Oberhelman, Simmons and Barber. Five of
these men have played their last game for A. H. S. They are: Shadinger, Smith,
Rose, Romberger and Oberhelman. Everett Stephens, who entered military service
in the middle of the season was also awarded an "A" by special recommendation of
the coach. A

Before we say anything about the present track season it might be interesting
to know what was accomplished last year in the state meets. Four men won the
inter-scolastic meet which was held at Lawrence. The state meet at Manhattan was
won by one-half a point. Our coach, Mr. Wheeler, had only four letter men around
which to build a team, and since only a comparatively small number of men came
out for the team, the prospects for another all victorious season were doubtful but
as practice progressed unknown material developed.
Our first meet was a triangular meet held at Minneapolis between Minneapolis,
Salina and Abilene. Abilene won the meet with 72 points, Salina 27 and Minneapolis
21. This encouraged the team and they began to work hard for the district meet
which was to be held the following Saturday, but on account of continued rains it
was postponed until the following Thursday. Abilene also won this meet with 575
points. Stanley Engle broke the District record in the 100 yard dash running it in
10 1-5 seconds, also the low hurdles, running them in 26 seconds. He tied the record
in the 220 yard dash, making it in 22 2-5 seconds. Six men were taken to the inter-
scolastic meet at Lawrence May 3. For some unknown reason the boys were out of
luck and they were only able to make 145 points. The same six men won the State
meet at Manhattan May 10.' With two men, Stanley Engle and Ronald Smith, we
tied for fourth place in the Invitation meet at Lawrence May 17.

The baseball season this year opened April 9 with an interclass game between
the Seniors and the three under classes, resulting in an easy victory for the Seniors.
Mr. P. F. Johnson, the coach, was able to get a good line on the men in this try-out
game, and practice continued hard and fast for several weeks. More men than
ever before turned out at the beginning of the season, and with five letter men the
outlook for the season was most encouraging. The team consists of: Willie Houl-
ton, pitcherg Alfred Little, pitcher, Leslie Oberhelman, catcher, Gerald Shadinger,
captain, first base, Harry Williams, second base, Wayne Platt, shortstop, Ronald
Smith, third base, Francis Callahan, right field, Otto Geoffrey, center field, Ervin

At the beginning of the school year there was a need of an organization in which
every girl could take part. The intensely patriotic spirit of the girls during the war
period prompted them to take up military training. This training provided for
drilling, setting up exercises and games. Four companies were organized with
an average of forty-live in each company. Four girls who had the requirements of
good officers were give a captain's commission.
The girls entered into the Cadet work with much enthusiasm, and after the first
few drills there was a marked improvement in their military attitude.
Orders regarding the full dress military uniform were soon issued as follows:
1. All girls must wear a dark blue skirt.
2. All girls must wear a white middy.
3. All girls must wear a trench cap.
4. All girls required to wear an orange and brown A. H. S. on the right of
trench cap. '
5. The colors of the ties adopted by the different companies were as follows:
A-Yellow. B-Green. C-Black. D-Red.
Tuesdays and Thursdays were set apart for drill days, with a period of forty
minutes for each drill day. Officers' school was held on Wednesday with a forty
minute period for of'ficers'i drill, and to plan the program for the next assemblage of
the respective companies.
The Girl Cadets made their military debut on the day the armistice was signed.
They took part in the morning celebration by marching in a column formation
through the business district of town. Again at night the girls were requested to
support the procession of other organizations of town.
,The next thing of importance on the schedule of the Cadet Corps was the Grand
Review held on February 27. In the reviewing standlwere all the members of the
faculty and the two commandants. The cadets covered the line of march in platoon
formation, and finally drew up in a battalion front for the purpose of having their
Plans were made for a regular basket ball schedule with games between the
four companies, and also between teams of each company and the officers' team. But
owing to the unfavorable weather conditions and the lack of the time, the program
was never completed.
The enthusiasm of the girls, regarding this new work, lasted throughout the
year. It is hoped by most of the girls expecting to attend the high school next year,
that this new form of physical training will be continued.

This year with a special period and a special instructor the demand for cadet
training was much greater than last. Another period, known as the A period, was
installed between the 4th and 5th periods. This was used on Tuesdays and Thurs-
days for drill and on Wednesdays for officers' school so that there were in all
about two hours a week given over to cadet work.
When the call was issued about the second week of school 120 boys turned out
and it was seen immediately that two companies would have to be formed in order
to accomplish much. Accordingly officers were appointed and the Boy Cadets came
to be known as Companies A and B. Later in the year Company B was divided into
Companies B and C for more intensive training. A Signal Corps was also formed
consisting of two squads, a sergeant and a captain. The purpose of the Signal Corps
was to give some of the men training in signal work so that the companies could ex-
During the first semester very little was accomplished on account of the various
infiuenza bans but when school did finally open up for good a fine showing was
made. The movements were almost' entirely confined to close order on account of
the limited space but in the spring some extended order was taken up by the indi-
vidual squads. The first of the year the drill consisted mostly of squad and company
drill and calisthenics. Some wall-scaling was also done which proved very interest-
ing and exciting. Guns were made by the Manual Training Department and the
Manual of Arms was taken up. After the holidays platoon movements were begun
and by February the 27th the cadets were ready for their first review. The review-
ing stand, occupied by the faculty, was in front of the high school. After the re-
view the battalion was marched to the rear of the building and had its picture taken,
The final change of the companies was made in March when Companies B and C
were again combined into one company known as Company B. The Signal Corps
was also changed at this time. From the two squads six men were picked to con-
tinue the work. The rest were divided among the two companies.
The late spring Work was mostly reviewing what we had been over and round-
ing off the corners. This was done in competitive drill, both of squads and com-
panies. The competitive drill included the Manual of Arms and all formations.
Another review, was also held which consisted of everything we had had during the
As a whole the year has proved very successful and has been helpful in more
than one way. It gives the boys training in obedience and attention and also breaks
up the monotonous routine of book work and gives them a breathing spell in the
open air. Next year things will probably be improved considerably with the new
building and still more if the school decides to accept the offer of the government.
This oHer includes a uniform for every man and a military instructor for the school.
The boy taking up this system does not obligate himself any more than he does when
he takes any other subject in the high school.

THE WORK OF THE VICTORY BOYS AND GIRLS
The Victory Boys and Girls campaign opened one morning in chapel when Miss
Elmore, who had charge of the girls' campaign, and Mr. Rigby, who had charge of
the boys, made talks explaining the drive. The girls opened their drive by giving a
pageant, "The American Girl on Trial," at the Seelye Theatre. The play was sent
out by the government and was given in all parts of the United States in connec-
tion with the United War Work Campaign. The high school orchestra assisted in
the work. Characters from the play were used on a float in the program given on
Peace Day, November eleventh. Each boy enrolled as one of "a million boys behind
a million fighters," and the girls under the slogan, "every girl pulling for victory,"
by pledging to earn and give a stated sum toward the United War Work Campaign
fund. The amount raised by the girls of A. H. S. was three hundred and twenty-six
dollars. The boys amount was two hundred and ninty dollars. A special "Victory"
button and a "Victory" banner to hang in the home window were given when
the subscription pledge was made. When the payment was fully made a certificate
receipt was given. The purpose of the campaign was to secure S170,500,000
with which to provide cheer and comfort for the American soldiers, sailors and
marines, and those of our Allies through the work of the following 'organiza-
tions: Young Men's Christian Association, National Catholic War Council, Jewish
Welfare Board, War Camp Community Service, American Library Association and
the Salvation Army.
THE RED CROSS DRIVE
The Junior Red Cross Drive began Monday, March thirty-first, and closed Wed-
nesday, April second, with Miss Story in charge of the drive. The memberships
were the same as last year, twenty-five cents. I Committees were appointed for each
class. Members of the various committees were: Seniors, Hazel Royer, Joe Tufts,
Galen Nickels, Ethis Kauffmang Juniors, Pauline Minick, Katherine Herbage, Ivan
Steele, Dorothy Burnham, Sophomores, Alta Stevens, Fred Lipps, Mildred Wilson,
Dorothy Fritz, Irvin Schoolerg Freshmen, Elizabeth Tober, Frances Blair, Christian
Rugh, Bruce Thayer, Lawrence Cutler, Dorothy Lucier, Harold Kauffman and John
D. Engle. Talks were made in chapel by Helen Curry on "Purpose of Red Crossf'
Fred Beckmeyer on "How to Get the Money and How Much We're Going to Havef'
and Cloyce Simmons on "How Our Money Is Spentf' The Senior representative,

Marian Patterson, gave each member of the class committees arm bands, so every-
one knew whom to pay. Fred Muench was chairman of all committees in school. The
main purpose of the Junior Red Cross is to care for orphans and refugees in the de-
vastated regions of France and Belgium. In America it also helps soldiers and help-
less families and promotes the teaching of personal hygiene in the public schools.
The quota for the Senior class was fifteen dollars, Juniors sixteen dollars and Hfty
cents, Sophomores eighteen dollars and twenty-five cents and the Freshmen twenty-
eight dollars. The Seniors went over the top first, with a full one hundred per cent.
A. H. S. GIRLS HELP MEMORIAL FUND
To provide a suitable memorial for the men and boys who gave their services,
and in some cases their lives, for the cause of democracy, has long been one of Abi-
lene's foremost problems. In starting this fund and giving it a boost, the manage-
ment of the Seelye Theatre donated the entire gross receipts in the afternoon and
evening of March tenth, on which the picture, "The Kaiser's Finish," was shown.
Girls from all classes of A. H. S. were asked to volunteer to sell tickets for the pic-
ture. Of course the girls responded to this call, and made one afternoon "Tag"
day, on which the Juniors sold the. most tickets, amounting to fifty-three dollars
and seventy-five cents. The total sold by all classes amounted to one hundred and

By HAZEL ROYER
Early in the winter a meeting was called of all students who wished to "try-
out" for debate. A class of twelve was formed with Mr. Brown as coach. The
question chosen for discussion was: "Resolved, That the United States should es-
tablish a protectorate over Mexico until a stable government is assured." The try-
out was held several weeks after Christmas and the following people were chosen
for the teams: Affirmative, Hazel Royer, captaing Christian Rugh and Ruth Hov-
gard, with Fred Beckmeyer as alternate. Negative, Stanley Engle, captaing Hen-
rietta Davis and Paul Kraybill with Gerald Shadinger as alternate.
A triangular debate was held as formerly between the three schools, Abilene,
Junction City and Salina. The Abilene affirmative team met the Salina negative
team at Abilene and was defeaied by a decision of 2-1. The same night at Junc-
tion City the Abilene negative team won by a decision of 2-1. No school won the
championship this year for all the negative teams won. The debaters have decided
that the question must have had something to do with the decisions.
Great credit is due the coach, Mr. Brown, for his untiring work with the teams
and for his excellent coaching. On the whole- this has been a successful year in de-
bate and since no school won the championship, the debaters feel that their time haS
been well and profitably spent.

GIRLS' GLEE CLUB
The Girls' Glee Club, composed of twenty-nine members, has worked faithfully
and earnestly under the leadership' of their competent director, Miss Gower, and
they have much to show for their hard work. Besides the numerous times the Glee
Club appeared in chapel for the entertainment of the faculty and students, they
were asked to sing on several different occasions, among them, the triangular de-
bate, the dedication of the new High School, the School Ofiicers' association of Dick-
inson county, and for a special meeting held in the Methodist church. Their real
talent was expressed in the joint program given by the two glee clubs and the or-
chestra. Members of the Glee Club are: Mary Virginia Averill, Allene Brown,
Willa Broughton, Dorothy Burnham, Margaret Cooper, Ruth Cutler, Bessie Coulson,
Loine Engle, Louise Forney, Esther French, Ruth Hovgard, Ethis Kauffman, Mildred
Kinsey, Irene Lanning, Frances Landes, Julia Lucier, Dorothy Neely, Marian Patter-
son, Meda Reese, Ethel Robson, Hazel Royer, Mabel Schuman, Maude Irene White-
head, Mildred Wilson, Nellie Wayts, Mary Elizabeth Witmer, Helen Keel, and
Dorothy Dodge, accompanist. '
BOYS' GLEE CLUB
The Boys' Glee Club this year has been a real credit to the school. It is true,
their appearances before the public have been limited, but that is because the boys
are very modest about their singing. Their reputation was established the first day
they sang in chapel when several of their selections were popular songs. The Glee
Club sang for several chapels, the School Officers' Association of Dickinson county,
the dedication of the new High School, and they did more than their share to make
the Glee Club and Orchestra Concert a success. Ten of the boys in the Glee Club
are Seniors. They are: Stanley Engle, James Fiddock, Preston Markley, Galen
Nickels, Leslie Oberhelman, Luther Romberger, Gerald Shadinger, Joe Tufts, Dean
Worley, Harold E. Kauffman and Edwin Butterfield. The other members are: Fred
Beckmeyer, Vernon Crebbs, Alfred Little, Joe Mason and Loraine Long.
Although the orchestra this year was unusually small, the fact that it was com-
posed of unusual talent, made it as good if not better than it has been in previous
years. The orchestra had been organized only a short time when the "flu" took
possession of the school, and the different organizations, including the orchestra,
were forced to discontinue for a period of Hve weeks. The orchestra made its Hrst
appearance when it played for the patriotic play, "The American Girl on Trial,"
staged by the Junior Red Cross. It has played for special chapel programs, the all
important Senior play, the dedication of the new High School, and was one of the
main features in the joint program given by the two glee clubs and orchestra. The
members are: Violins, Miss Gower, director, Dorothy Dodge, Ivan Steele, Joe
Tufts, cornets, Gerald Shadinger, Don Valentine, trombones, Vernon Crebbs, Ken-
neth Conkling clarinet, Loraine Long, piano, Julia Lucier,

Last year the Booster was published by the Journalism class as part of their reg-
ular work, but this year the staff was chosen by the faculty and all work was car-
ried on outside of class because of the fact that we had no fourth year English
course offered this year and therefore no Journalism class. No credit is given' for
Booster work and all work is simply volunteer. The students have always shown
their willingness to work hy the spirit in which they respond to all demands.
The Booster means a great deal to the student who is interested in his school
and in his functions and all students feel that they have a part in the school as a
whole and not simply as a class. All students have been requested to contribute
news and Booster Betties during the year.
The Booster is printed in the Daily Reflector by the kindness of Mr. Harger and
makes its appearance on Friday of each week. Next year the plans have been
made to publish a High School paper every week. All work will be done at the
school, even the printing, as there will be a fine new printing press installed in the
The Booster consists of all class news, chapel talks, editorials, Booster Betties,
class jokes and the calendar. Several special numbers were printed during the
year. lin this manner the paper stands for a complete record of the school year.

JUNIOR-SENIOR RECEPTION 1919
The all-absorbing event of the year is the J unior-Senior Reception. This year's
reception was one long to be remembered by those present. It was given in the
form ofa garden party, on April 25, at the A. O. U. W. hall. The color scheme
of yellow and white was carried out. The walls were made into panels with
lattice work, which was decorated with yellow roses. Baskets of flowers were
suspended from the ceiling. With innumerable birds and butterflies the early
summer picture was made complete. After the arrival of all the guests a five
course dinner was served. I The' tables were decorated with yellow and white.
The dinner served was:
Scalloped Corn Potatoes on Half Shell
Pickles Olives Radishes
Waldorf Salad Wafers V
Orange Ice Cream Angel Food Cake
. Coffee Mints
Toasts were given with Kenneth Conklin acting as toast master.
After the tables had been removed and chairs re-arranged a "Fashion Show"
was given by a number of Junior girls. This was a very effective closing for the re-
ception of 1919. A '
FOOTBALL BANQUET A
The annual football banquet occurred on a stormy night, December 23, 1918. It
had been feared that the banquet could not be held on account of the many difficul-
ties that the team had to overcome during the season, but this obstacle was also
overcome and the boys showed their superior ability to entertain.
The Tip Top Inn was decorated in orange and brown. One long table was ar-
ranged for forty-tive guests, with carnations and roses as center pieces and small
dolls as place cards and favors.
A four-course dinner was served, consisting of:
Cream of Tomato Soup
Roast Turkey with Cranberry Sauce
Mashed Potatoes with Cream Gravy Creamed Corn
Ice Cream and Cake

pal Wheeler and next year's captain, Gerald Rose.
Those present were: Misses Marie Kauffman, Ethis Kauffman, Marian Patter-
son, Eunice Landis, Dorothy Neely, Florence Neely, Susie Kyle, Julia Lucier,

It is a custom in the Abilene High School to give every class a day off from
school for a picnic when they get to be Juniors. Last May,- when the present grad-
uating class were Juniors, Miss Dean and Mr. Bailey chaperoned the class to Wood-
bine. This was one of the best Junior picnics that ever a Junior class has had.
Regardless of the war, an abundant picnic dinner was provided. Mr. Bailey led a
game of "Follow the Leader" after dinner, over the hills, through creeks and to a
wolf den, ending up at they Devil's Hole. Swimming and wading were the features
of the picnic, and the class returned late to town, tired and ready for another the
This year the same class plans on going on a picnic with Miss Dean and Miss
Russell as chaperons. ,
Miss Haskell and Miss Thomas expect to chaperon this year's Junior class on an
all-day picnic soon. As no date has been set for it yet, every Junior is anxious for
it and is assuring the other classes that it will be a big one and a good one.
Along with all work there must be some amusement. So the Seniors started
the ball rolling with a hike to the sand-cut. It was an absolute success, because the
faculty as well as every student seemed to enjoy the games and wienies.
Next came a frolic given by the Senior girls for all of the other girls in school
and the women faculty members. This proved to be a splendid mixer and the other
classes intend to make it an annual event.
The boys in the class conceived the idea of entertaining for the girls in the
class. The outcome was a party given in the High School. The entertainment was
confined to a "stunt" put on by all of the boys of the class and faculty. After
games and songs, refreshments were served by the boys. Mr. Bailey of last year's
faculty was the out-of-town guest. .
The next party was a Valentine party given by the Senior girls for the boys.
The D. A. room was decorated with festoons of red crepe paper and red hearts.
Games fitting for the day were played, an archery contest was held, and after
Valentine refreshments were served, the guests departed, having had a 'real time.
The Seniors held their annual spread April fourth at the home of Loine Engle.
Dinner was served at seven o'clock to the sixty guests. The tables and place cards,
as well as the girls' white middy suits and yellow ties, carried out the class colors of
yellow and white. The menu consisted of: Creamed chicken, mashed potatoes,
gravy, pickles, Parker House rolls, creamed peas and perfection salad, frozen
custard, angel-food cake, and coffee. The favors were narcissus and daffodils. The
following Sophomore girls served: Ruth McCarthy, Bernice Rogers, Ebba Landis,
Eunice Landis, Mildred Kinsey. and Georgia Jolley. Following the dinner came the
toasts, with James Fiddock as toastmaster. Miss Lohrding gave the Hrst toast, her
subject being "Attention!" Gerald Shadinger gave the next one "Forward, March!"
Miss Haskell came next with a poem written for us "About, Faceg A Retrospect."
Estella Engle talked on the command, "Halt." The last toast brought us to

"Salutel" by Mr. Gruver. Floyd Gish of Lincoln, Nebraska, was the out-of-iown
guest and gave an impromptu talk. Tables and chairs were removed and after
everyone had time to get acquainted, Miss Lowther played several piano solos, Miss
Elmore read several dialect selections, and Marian Patterson sang. The class as a
whole likes to sing, so the remainder of the evening was spent in singing the popu-
lar music and school favorites.
The first Junior party was a water melon party at the home of Kenneth Conklin.
For the first time in their lives every Junior was there and had his fill of water melon.
The next party was in the K. of C. hall in January. Entertainment consisted of
games and songs. A special was put on by Willa Broughton, a "Fairy Dance"
which aroused much attention.
About a month later the Juniors had a Washington's Birthday party at the K.
of C. hall.
This time the hall was decorated in the national colors, festoons of crepe paper
bunting and flags furnishing the material. Games and entertainment were fur-
nished in abundance and after refreshments were served, one of the girls played the
piano while others sang popular music.
March 28, the Juniors had a hike to the sand-cut. The unusual thing about
thishike was that only the class sponsors were invited. At any rate, all who went
say it was an ideal hike and judging from the publicity they gave themselves the
next day in the Booster, everyone had a good time.
The Sophomore class gave its first party January 2 at the K. of C. hall. The
hall was artistically decorated with crepe paper in the class colors, red and white.
Games, such as "Ruth and Jacob," "Initials," "Winkum," "Charades," and many
stunts afforded much entertainment. Miss Cecelia Miglario of Topeka, gave a read-
ing entitled "Laddie." Refreshments consisted of sandwiches, pickles and cocoa.
The party was a great success, since the class had been saving its pep all year for
their first party. '
The next party was held at the high school a few weeks later when the Sopho-
more boys entertained the Sophomore girls and faculty. The following program
afforded entertainment for the entire evening: A toast, "The Class of '21," by
Bernice Engle. Solo, "Sunshine of Your Smile," Fred Beckmeyerg Reading, "In
Dees Beeg Unita States," Frank Grossg Trombone solo, Vernon Crebbsg Crayon
Artist, James Brennemang Solo, "Whispering Winds," Miss Lowther, Choruses,
"Smiles," "Long, Long Time," "Keep the Home Fires Burning." Refreshments
consisted of chicken salad, hot rolls, pickles, frozen custard and wafers.
Everyone admits that the Sophomores are almost as good as the Seniors, because
it was they that went "over the top" in the annual drive. For their hard work, the
Annual Board gave them a hike. They invited the Seniors to hike to the country
on April 11 with them. Wienies and marshmellows were toasted while the re-
mainder of the eats were being prepared. The "Sister" classes proved the good
spirit that exists in the whole school, thereby making it a success.
The Freshmen activities for the past term, whilenot as numerous as they will
be in their advanced years, were full of the spirit and enthusiasm of A. H. S. Among
other functions in which they had an active part, there have been only two which
were distinctly their own. These two have been parties-one November 22, the
other on March 7. The former at K. of C. hall, was sort of an "all-round-getting-
acquainted" party, in which music and jokes, added to the games and refreshments,
contributed a large share to the general fun and excitement for all.
The latter, a St. Patrick's party, was given at the I. O. O. F. hall. Irish songs
and rhymes, composed by the rising young poets in the class, together with the
green articles of clothing the girls were requested to wear, and which some didn't,
thinking it unnecessary, lent to the festivity a genuine St. Patrick's air.

however, the plan of having several short one act plays was instituted, in which
the same characters were retained throughout. Experience was gained by the

THE SENIOR PLAY
Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh, the Senior Play, was an amusing comedy showing the
complications arising from the endeavors of a social climber to land herself in the
altitude peopled by hyphenated names.
Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh, originally Della Salles, the daughter of Old Jim Salles of
Missionary Loop, Indiana, achieved for herself an English rectory after a strenuous
season or two in the society of Washington, D. C. The family name had meanwhile
turned into De Salle. Old Jim had previously died and his widow and younger
daughter anglicized themselves as much as nature would allow. To arrange the
engagement of this daughter, Violet, to Anthony Rawson, a promising American,
Mrs. Bumpstead-Leigh brought the women over to the Long Island home of the
Rawsons where Violet promptly forgot Anthony in contemplating his brother Geof-
frey. Hearing the real antecedents of the De Salle family from Peter Swallow, an
enterprising tombstone dealer, who had formerly lived at Missionary Loop and had
courted Della Salles, Anthony contrived a meeting between Mrs. Bumpstead-Liegh
and Mr. Swallow in order to prove the charge. Out-manoeuvered by the resource-
ful lady, Mr. Swallow retired baffled but not convinced. At this point Violet frus-
trated all her sister's machinations by telling the truth. Anthony broke the engage-
ment and the Rawsons repudiated their English guests. Geoffrey assumed his
brother's responsibilities to Violet most opportunely, and Mrs. Bumpstead-Liegh
coming across some damaging items concerning Anthony's private career, held him
up for the recognition of the De Salles by the Rawson's.
This most successful comedy was presented two nights beginning May 22, 1919,
at the High School Auditorium, under the direction of Mabel Marshall Elmore.
