Voyages 0f the Past.
N 1880, the first Abilene High School voyage was made by five passengers
in one cabin on board the ship HGarfield." The entire command of the
voyage, including officers and crew, was in the hands of one captain. The
passengers were enrolled for a two-year cruise.
VVith the coming of more passengers, the cruise
63' gqgyi, ' was extended to cover four'years. More room was
' 444 :44 -v needed the firstzclass cabins of the upper deck on
z, ff ' fi 2: ,. the ship Qbltyl Hall ' were chartered. iTl1lS furnished
,. .4 E suitable shipping for Abilene High School through
yg, V , .Ly fourteen annual voyages.
orQ,7'E P?6S' By this time the passengers had grown to an ex-
Qgkhggg tent that demanded larger quarters. So, in 1907, a
modern liner, now termed the "Junior High," was
completed to serve as the flag ship for the fleet of activity and organization
crafts that were being pressed into service by the added passengers. In the
construction of this vessel the ship-board and people backing the venture
felt that they had reached the pinnacle of ship building.
But progress continued and the passenger list kept growing. At the
same time the business of ship-building had expanded to include many new
inventions, conveniences and features of beauty. Again, in IQIQ, the ship-
board launched a building campaign, this time for a Leviathian liner, com-
modious enough to accommodate five hundred passengers, to serve as a flag
ship for the fleet.
The fla shin "Abilene Hi h School" travels over five courses: Pro-
. . 3 . . .
fessional normal commercial home economics, and industrial arts.

The "Abilene High School" has carried many passengers who have
brought honor to themselves and to the school in scholarship, debate, basket-
ball, football and track.
During nineteen years of our voyages our good ships were guided by
Commodore W. A. Stacey. Last year Mr. Stacey retired from service and
F. C. Gardner is now in command.
One thousand three hundred and thirty persons have completed their
journeys on board and since the number of passengers has increased each
year, the crew which at first consisted of a single captain now has twenty-

HE "JUNIOR," one of the foremost liners in the fleet of the Abilene
High School, was under command of the following officers: Mort
Smith, Lyman Marshall, VViln1a Taylor and John -lohntz.
Early in the voyage the fleet anchored for a Fall Festival parade, in
which the "junior" took the first prize of a half-holiday.
The first social affair was a hike, on which the passengers became adept
at games, especially the sport of baseball.
ln the field of Drama the 'fjunioru began action with a program, the
feature of which was a swing song, sung in a setting of swings decorated
with roses and colored lights. The biggest event was the annual play, "The
Hottentotf, a story of racing. This play showed Hjunior" talent at its best.
Late in the season a one-act play, f'The Templeton Teapotf, was successfully
ln the Orange and Brown contest between ships, the "Junior" came in
firstg in the Booster contest the good ship was second.
Throughout the entire voyage the f'Junior" led in the scholarship race
by having the largest number of passengers nlake the Honor Roll,
Two athletics captains, football and track. and two members of the de-
bate teams were 'fjunioru passengers.
Near the close of the voyage, a reception was given in honor of the "Sen-
ior" by 6'junior" seamen. The lower deck of the flagship HAbilene High
Schooln which was the scene of the gay occasion, was decorated beautifully
in keeping with the theme of a Spring lXlay-Feta.

HE ABILENF High School fleet has once more Hwallowed the waves,"
and the 'fSophomore" is still with her, with a livelier crowd than ever
Really, the "Salty Sophomore Sailorsl' have much of which to be proud.
The girls' team for the second year carried away the basketball tournament
banner. Some of the "sturdy lads" became quite famous on the football
field and others proved their valor on thc basketball court and cinder track.
In music, drama, clubs and scholarship the Sophomores were equally well
One beautiful autumn evening the crew and passengers gained "shore
leave" and took a hike into the country. Oh glorious day! They played
games, sang, ate blackened beefsteak and strolled ship-ward by the light of
At Thanksgiving time the Sophomores entertained the entire fleet with
a pageant which brought out the idea that "thanks" and "giving" are both in
the meaning of the day.
Along in April the "Sophomore" again dropped anchor and the passen-
gers went off for a picnic.
The big drama event of the year was the occasion of the annual Sopho-
more-Freshman play. Even though the play was preceded by the dramatic
efforts of both Juniors and Seniors, it was well staged and acted.
The officers of the "Sophomore" were: President, Laurence VVilson3

UT OF A squad ol twenty men, ten of whom were letter men, Coach
Buenning built a team that went through the season without a defeat.
After the first game the junior High team combined with the Fresh-
men. This strengthened the team but forced it to play high school second
Captain Jack Morrison piloted the team in a clever quarterback style.
The team was light, only weighing about 135 pounds to the man, but
made up for this in fight and determination.
The big victory of the season was the defeat of Salina on the home field.
After guarding the Abilene goal the whole game and with Salina six points
ahead, the Cowboys recovered a fumble and made a touchdown with three
minutes to play. Abilene kicked goal, giving the Juniors the game 7 to 6.
Besides the regular schedule junior lligh played the last half of the Mc--
Pherson game which was scheduled for the Cowboys. The juniors distin-
guished themselves by making a touchdown off the opposing high school

HERE ARE two groups of Campfire girls in A. H. S. They are the
Petaga and the Wita VVenten groups. This year the club had a mem-
bership of fourteen members with two junior girls as assistant spon-
sors. Throughout the year the girls have had candy sales and have raised
funds to buy their supplies needed to carry on the work.
At Thanksgiving time the girls made baskets as an art problem and dec-
orated them and filled them with fruit and food. Prizes were awarded for
the best baskets. The filled baskets were then given to the needy families
of the eity. One of the aims of the organization is to develop the skill in
handcraft. During the year the girls did some of this Work in decorating
their gowns and head bands.
One of the most enjoyable and interesting meetings was the one held
on Indian Hill near Chapman, March 21. Even though it did rain, the cere-
monial meeting was carried on just the same. Vliilma Taylor, one of the as-
sistant sponsors, took the Torchbearer honor, which is the highest honor a
Campfire girl can get.
The officers for the year were: President, Bernice Harrisg viee-presi-
dent, lone Rubing secretary, Emma Longg treasurer, Dorothy May Green.

N TUESDAY evening September 29, the Commercial club met to organ-
ize for its fourth year,s work in the Abilene High School. Officers for
the year were elected as follows: Ruby Roberson, presidentg Ethel
VVhitehair, vice-presidentg Naida Chase, secretaryg Mildred Yonnally, treas-
urer, Ernest Diehl, advertising manager, with Miss Lunden, Miss Pinson and
Miss McPhail as sponsors.
The club membership this year included forty-three active and progres-
sive students. Any junior or Senior enrolled in the Commercial course is
eligible to regular membership in the club. Any other student taking book-
keeping, shorthand or typewriting may become an associate member.
The purpose is to strengthen the interests in the Commercial department,
to give its members practice in parliamentary law and speaking in public and
to help the students become better acquainted with business men of the town
and aid them in finding out the requirements of business. Meetings were
held on the regular club nights--the last Tuesday of each month at 7 230. The
meetings consisted of a business hour followed by a program and social
hour, The program usually was so arranged as to have talks on Commer-
cial subjects by members of the club and an address by some business man.
The first social was a joint initiation and Hallowe'en party held at the
high school on October 27. The Hallowe'en spirit and customs were carried
out in costumes, decorations, games and refreshments.
During the latter part of the year a special chapel program, a social and
a hike were features of unusual interest to the members.

During the first part of the term, club meetings were held on the regu-
lar club nights of each month. The programs consisted of discussions on
subjects of physical and chemical nature. Radio was studied during the lat-
ter part of the year.
Mr. Schwab, the sponsor of the club, at one of the meetings gave the his-
tory of a piece of coal from a biological and geological standpoint. The chem-
ical processes involved and the products formed when coal is distilled and
burned were pointed out.
A feature of the year's work was a social gathering on January 26. The
evening was spent in telling stories and "listening inn on the radio.
"The Story of Bakelite" was shown at one of the meetings, using the Sci-
ence club's own motion picture machine. The picture showed in a clear and
effective way the process of wood distillation, the making of the complex
compound bakelite from formaldehyde and carbolic acid and the making of
the bakelite into radio panels, beads, pipestems and many other articles.
The members of the radio branch made a study of different types of re-
ceiving ancl transmission sets. A number of sets were built and experi-
mented with. A receiving set is kept in good condition for the use of various
groups of students to listen to lectures pertaining to their work.

school activities as much as possible. The officers for the year were:

thusiam for the big games of the season.
The most successful parade of the year was held on October 2, just be-
fore the Manhattan game. Five hundred students and the members of the
faculty took part in the parade. The line marched through the town in a
snake fashion, giving yells and songs as they went. After a big bonfire at
the gridiron the group returned to town for free rcfreshnients. During the
basketball season the boys had charge of the doors, acting as ushers.

en in the form of a squad until afterf the Christmas holidays when each was
placed on one of the two teams.
The affirmative' team was composed of Mort Smith, Walter Nelson and
Kathryn Watkiiis. The team elected Kathryn Watkins captain.
'The question used in the league this year was: "Resolved, That the
proposed twentieth amendment to the Constitution should be adopted."
In the first debate, which was a dual debate with junction City, janu-
ary 18, the affirmative lost by five points. At the same time Salina met
Ellsworth and Herington met Chapman. These schools were all members
of Class A of the Ninth District in the Kansas Debate League.
On February 15, the affirmative team met the .Herington negative at
Herington and lost by a 2-I decision. The Abilene team was the only af-
firmative team in this triangular debate that won a judges' decisiong there-
fore, the points stood 4-2 in favor of Abilene.
In the final debate with junction City on February 22, the Abilene affirm-
ative won by a 2-1 decision.

HOSE who were chosen out of the squad for the negative team were:
VVilla Graff, Laura Coulson and Robert Gump. VVilla Graff was elected
captain by the team. After much work and study on the part of both
teams they met, january l2, for a trial debate, at which time the negative
team won by a 2-I decision.
The negative team went to junction City january 18, and won in the de-
bate with junction City's affirmative by I7 points. Because the Abilene neg-
ative won by more points than the junction City negative, Abilene was rated
as the winning school at that time.
In the triangular debate with Salina and Herington, on February 15, the
Abilene negative was victorious in defeating the Salina affirmative by a 3-0
Since Junction City won the triangular debate with Chapman and Ells-
worth and Abilene won the triangular debate with Salina and Herington, all
the schools but junction City and Abilene were eliminated.
Abilene then debated .lunction to determine the championship of this
district and Junction City won by a 4-2 decision, the Abilene negative losing
with a 3-O decision. This made Junction City the champion of the Ninth
District of the State League with Abilene second.
Even though the Abilene teams did not win the district championship,
they had a successful year, considering the fact that the teams consisted of
entirely inexperienced members.

Senior Class Play
S ITS last dramatic appearance the Senior class presented "Under Cov-
er," on thel nights of March I2 and 13. The play was a clever four-act
mystery story of the United States service and customs house and drew
a full house for both performances. More than 1,100 persons attended and
the net proceeds amounted to S'p348.5O.
The characters were suited so perfectly to the cast and the action moved
with such ease that the production would have been a credit to professionals.
One of the pleasing parts of the play was a French song, sung during the
action by Marie Sullivan.
Songs by a quartet and a dance formed the interludes.

' Freshman-Saphomore Play
HE FRFSHMEN and Sophomores closed the dramatics season with the
presentation of their play, "Sunshine," a clever three-uct comedy, on
May 7. It has been the custom for three years, to combine these two
classes in choosing the cast for their play. This was the first appearance in
dramaties for some members of the cast, and they did very well.
The play has its setting around a sanitarium in New York, where Mary
Sunshine is a nurse. Buddy Brady, an ex-baseball player comes here for
treatment and while here. becomes friendly with Mary and keeps her and
his pal from being swindled by Z1 speculator. The patients and mental cases
that are being cared for at this szrnitztrium add comedy and entertainment
to the preformance.

Prologue "Once in cz Blue Moon"
HIS YEAR, for the first time in many, junior High organized musical
clubs. The organizations were open to any boy or girl regardless of
voice qualities. Both Glee Clubs were under the supervision of Mr.
Byron Donmyer, the high school music instructor.
Wlieii the high school musical organizations presented the operetta,
"Once ln a Blue Moon," the junior clubs gave the prologue.
The Noon Lady, played by a high school girl, Lois Dunn, with her six
little attendants, played by girls from Junior High, were dressed in dainty
costumes and combined with the choruses made the prologue as entertaining
as the operetta. The juniors' voices showed hard work and splendid train-
The Abilene schools were very successful in their music this year, and
are ranked with the best schools of the state.
Abilene won first or second in six events out of nine in a state contest at

HE PRACTTCE of true courtesy is a golden ship which sails into the
harbor of higher enlightenment, Through the social happenings of the
Abilene High School, the students come into contact with more peo-
ple, form new friendships and are developed by the refining and cultural in-
fluence of social intercourse.
juniors Open Social Season
Wliile en route, the junior Class started the social season by dropping
anchor on the twenty-eighth of September at Shirkys grove. Approximate-
ly sixty passengers with chaperones attended.
A relay engineered by Captain Gray started the activities and showed
the sprinting ability of many unknown stars. Don jolleyeis side won, owing
to its small number. Following the relay, other games were played.
VVienie sticks were rushed to the scene and a line was formed for eats.
After that the juniors attended the show.
Seniors Go to City Park
The Seniors Qfirst class passengersj had difficulty in securing a suitable
date for their picnic. Finally, after two postponements, their liner sailed into
the harbor of the City park on the twelfth day of October. There, on the
play equipment and in the warmth of the Agriculture hall, the "dignitaries'
played. Lunch was served at six o'clock.
Sophies Attend Steak Fry
On the fifteenth of Gctober, the class of '28 closed the hiking season by
stopping for a steak fry at Morton's pasture. The Sophies met on deck at
four oiclock, and from there journeyed to the chosen site. Their refresh-
ments consisted of steak, sandwiches, pickles, apples and doughnuts.
G. R. -Hi-Y Entertain Cupid
During the three consecutive months that followed the month of Octo-
ber, social life was dormant. The passengers underwent a seige of sea-sick-
ness, which quelled society, and the dullness was broken only here and there
by a few minor group parties. lt was not until the ninth of February that
the voyagers were again interested in a social event. lt was then that the
G. R. and Hi-Y organizations held a delightful St. Valentine's party in the
gymnasium. The scheme of decorations was red and white. The first part
of the evening was spent in the enjoyment of a clever program and the last
part in the playing of games. A committee of G. R. and Hi-Y members
served red apples and white popcorn balls. Then everyone retired to his
cabin, pronouncing the mixer a success.

St. Patrick'sf01' Freshmen
The Freshmen again stepped into society by enjoying a St. Patrick's
party on the evening of the nineteenth of March. The gymnasium was
brightly decorated with green and white. The guests were divided into four
groups. Each group presented a stunt and joined in the playing of Irish
games. Two features of the evening were a stunt given by eight boys and
girls of the Freshman class, and a violin solo played by Lois Wilcox. Re-
freshments, consisting of shamrocle ice cream and wafers, were served.
Ship Is Theme of Spread
The annual Senior Spread was given by the Senior class, with faculty
members as guests, on the sixteenth of April. The affair was held in the
main gangway at a. "T" shaped table. The ship idea was carried out in the
appointments and in the four course dinner served at seven o'clock.
Blue and white class colors were used 111 the table decorations, which con-
sisted of blue ocean with sailing boats and lightg houses. Tiny ships, a com-
bination of nut cups and place cards, marked the place of each guest present.
Blue banners with white figurs of 1926 were served on the little individual
ice cream yachts.
An orchestra. composed of five pieces of the high school music depart-
ment, played during the evening.
Boycle Kyle, president of the Senior class, acted as toastmaster. The
toasts centered upon the idea of the ship motif. They were as follows: "En-
listingf' Supt. F. C. Gardnerg f'Detention Camps," Ruth Siegristg "Training,"
Prin. M. R. Grayg f'Embarking," lvan Robersong "Swabbing Decks," Miss
Opal McPhailg "Liberty," Mr. liarl Endacott.

composed of Marie SlllllV21ll, Edythe Huitt, Donald Flippo and Leslie Rasher,
sang, "On the Road to lXlandalay," and "She Is just a Sailor's Sweetheart."
Sophomore passengers dressed in their blue or white sailor suits served
Reception Amid Blossoms
ln the midst of Maytime blossoms the junior class entertained the Senior
class with its annual reception on the evening of the thirtieth of April. It
was one of the lnost beautiful receptions ever given in the high school.
The passengers were ushered into a bower of flowers where the May-
pole occupied the center of attention. On the west was the throne where the
May Queen was to be crowned later in the evening. The guests were in-
closed within lattice archways from which hung baskets and dimmed lights.
A false ceiling made of spring blossoms over hung the room. Soft rays of
light brought out the beauty of the pastel colorings and the black lattice with
leaves and flowers stood out against the background of the white wall. D
f ff"fff The quartette tables were pretty with their artistic decorations of llght
5 ' 1 colors. ln the center of each was a small Maypole with ribbons leading out
to the flower nut baskets. Artistic hand-painted programs were placed by
. I ,6!, U
T ww-fw..,'v,,1f 1.1
each plate. Quaint old fashioned bouquets, consisting of handpainted colored
voile handkerchiefs for the girls and gumdrop boutonnieres for the boys were
distributed among the voyagers by little girls.
Mort Smith, junior class president, acted as toastmastcr. Toasts were
given by Supt. F. C. Gardner, Prin. M. R. Gray, Vtlilla Graff, Mary French
and Boyde Kyle. The feature of the evening was the crowning of the May
Queen selected from the Senior girls. Specialties were a vocal solo by Mrs.
Gray, the Maypole dance by eight little girls and music by the Trianon Sere-
Ribbon sandwiches, chicken salad, nutmeatsi, Bavarian cream in the form
of potted plants, and wafers were served by Freshmen girls.
Athletic Banquet is Held
The athletes and members of the "A" club with their guests joined
in having a banquet on the thirteenth of May. lt was held in the Do-
mestic Art room with decorations of orange and brown. Miss Flippo's
Domestic Science girls served a five course dinner. The menu consisted of
fruit cocktail, chicken, potatoes, salad, celery, creamed peas, buttered rolls,
pineapple whip, ice cream, mints, nuts and coffee.
With Coach Van Osdol as toastmastier, toasts were given by Supt. F. C.
Gardner, Principal M, R. Gray and the captains of the various teams.
Sophonfiores Again Picnic
The Sophs were the first to enjoy a spring picnic. They went to Rush's
grove where the daisies and violets were blooming in abundance. Seventy
voyagers attended. Their picnic lunch was somewhat unusual for it consist--
ed of meat and egg sandwiches, peanuts, salad, beans, pop and ice cream.

sportsmanship in the battle but their crafts were too light to withstand

N SEPTEMBER, 1922, the class of '26 started on a voyage through A. H.
S. which was to last for four long years. We were to sail in four dif-
ferent vessels, namely the "Freshman," the "Sophomore," the "junior,"
and the "Seniorf' A year was to be spent on each vessel before the journey
could be completed. We were joined by many new friends who helped to
make the passenger list one hundred and twenty-one strong.
Vlgqe began our voyage by electing able officers to guide us on the Fresh-
man s ip.
Our recreation the first year consisted of a party and a hike and, on
March 9, 1923, we gave three one-act plays in which we showed our drama-
We had one bright spot on the "Football" liner-Ralph QRedD Green-
ough represented us there.
By May, 1923, we had finished one-fourth of the voyage. Again, three
months afterward, we set sail on board the "Sophomore" In the second
year of our voyage, the Sophomore passengers were well represented in
athletics. Ralph Greenough and Herbert Beltz were among the best players
on the football team. These two men also played basketball,
We had a play, "Oh Polly," a class song, a yell and everything that makes
a peppy class, so after winning several contests we started on the "junior"
in September, 1924.
Our year on the "junior', was one in which we were second to none.
Football letters were awarded to four juniors: Garver, Greenough, Horner
and Meissinger. llleisinger was our main track representative.
The Glee clubs and Orchestra would have been weak without junior tal-
ent, and as for our play, 'KThe Gold Bug," it was only a sample of what our
passengers could do. T
Our reception for the Seniors was held in a colorflul. Japanese garden,
where little japanese maids waited to serve us.
And now we come near the end of our voyage. As "Senior" passengers
we again starred in basketball and football. The football men who received
letters were: Garver, Greenougih, Duffy, Horner, Meissinger, Flippo and Mil-
ham. Those i11 basketball were: Grigg, Meissinger, Horner, Greenough
and Duff .
Katlgyn VVatkins, Willa Graff and Laura Coulson represented the Sen-
iors in debate.
The play "Under Coverl' was a 'Khowling" success. Our talent in every
line of activity has been developed and serves as an example. to less expe-
Durjng our four years' voyage we have always been together. The friend-
ships formed and the fellowship of associating together will always bring
fond memories of our high school days in dear old A. H. S.
