Board of Education
F HE BOARD OF Education is the controlling body of the Abilene
Schools, and each member is elected to serve a term of four years. The
members this year are C. W. Taylor, president, W. C. Grigg, H. W.
Keel, S. R. Heller, L. B. Stants, and H. A. Snider. Olin Strowig has been
elected to fill the vacancy caused by the retirement of H. A. Snider.
Mr. Snider has served as a member of the Board of Education for
twenty-two years. Those who know him best know that this means twen-
ty-two years of quiet, efficient service, kindly and cheerfully given. Be-
cause he is quiet and unassuming, the public does not know, and perhaps
does not appreciate, how impartial, how efficient, how much above the aver-
age, and how altogether valuable have been the services he has rendered
The general work of the Board of Education is accomplished through
two committees. One is the building and grounds committee, the other the
education and finance committee.
Much of the daily routine work is done by Mr. Gardner, superintendent
of schools. Mrs. Edna Sampson is his secretary, and is also clerk of the
Board of Education.

Education in Abilene
NE OF ABILENES most outstanding achievements is the establish-
ment of an efficient school system which places a high school educa-
tion Within the reach of every student who is willing to receive the op-
portunity at his disposal. The struggle for the erection and equipment of
these schools was long and difficult, physically as well as financially. But
aided by the untiring efforts of those leaders of the past whose desire it was
to secure for their posterity an opportunity to grasp
for higher learning, the worth-while task was accom-

How different are our schools of yesterday from
' as 1870 when a few of the broader-visioned parents
5 responded to the call for education for the coming
, 0 14,7 generations, and exemplified it in the erection of a
,TER pD small stone school building located on South Waliiut
Lkggg Street. The teacher was W. C. Wiley, an early pion-
eer in AlJ1lC11C,S educational field. Later improve-
ments were made, and more schools were built, until
Abilene now boasts of six modern school houses fully equipped with suffi-
cient facilities to accommodate fifteen hundred students.
A similar striking comparison can also be shown in the number of grad-
uates completing the four-year high school course. In 1880, only five stu-
dents Were graduated, while the graduating class of 1929 numbers ninety-
eight students. A corresponding increase has also taken place in the num-
ber of teachers employed. The first year the high school was in existence,
only one teacher constituted the faculty, while today the teaching force con-
sists of twenty-five efficient instructors.
Today students who attend Abilene High School have the privilege of
choosing among several fields of specialized work offered in the school cur-
riculum. These include Professional, Normal Training, Commercial, Home
Economics, Manual Arts, and Vocational Agriculture. Each department is
complete in all details and provides proper equipment for the advancement
of learning. ,
Abilene High School has always ranked high in scholarship, athletics,
debate, music, and oratory, and schools all over the State are willing to
recognize her as a progressive institution, turning out men and Women of
merit who will ,later launch into the world's work and carry out the same
high ideals which have been instilled into them during their high school days,

Senior Class History
By KATHRYN JOHNSON
ES, WE ARE Seniors, the pride of the Abilene
High School. After four years' pursuit of elusive
studies, cultivation of varieties of friendships,
and a certain amount of social training, we are fast
nearing the day of graduation, when we enter the
world for which we have been preparing.
This yearls officers were: Henry Smith, president,
Marie Roemer, vice presidentg Ruth Coulson, secre-
tary, and Deane Duffy, treasurer. The class was
sponsored by Miss Opal McPhail, Miss Miriam Dex-
ter, Miss Ethel Giles, Miss Ruth Hoffman, and Mr.
012AJgm1XIeCrfggIAIL We Seniors are not mere commonplace Seniors,
Kan. Wesleyan Col- but have been leaders in numerous events since our
first days in A. H. S. in 1925. As Freshmen, we won
our red and white banner in the Annual contest, and again took first as
Sophomores. Our Junior play "The Whole Town's Talking" was conceded
to be the most successful of its kind ever produced in Abilene High. At
the close of our Junior year we bade the Seniors farewell at a banquet in a
lege of Commerce
Instead of re resentin the facultv in our Christmas cha el, we ave a
. P g I . . P 55
play entitled "Uncle Mel's Christmas." Our play on April 12, "The Green
Dragon Emerald," was a Chinese mystery play which was of an entirely dif-
T11 scholarship, literary ability, and athletics, our class as a whole has
won unusual honors, and holds an enviable record. Spcially, our members
are leaders. A spirit of comradeship and good fellowship binds us together
here and this will help us to work in co-operation with our fellowmen.

Junior Class History
By JoHN RUGH
E ARE NOT Seniors looking back nor Fresh-
men looking forward, but juniors. We are at
that happy time in high school when class spir-
it is highest and class co-operation is best. We are
not a mediocre class, because ever since we crossed
the threshold of A. H. S. for the first time we have
been outstanding in our accomplishments.
It remained for the junior class to introduce the
standardized class rings in A. H. S. The junior class
was instrumental in finding a means for obtaining bet-
ter student government in A. H. S. The Junior class
was well represented in all branches of athletics, in-
ter-school and intramural.
Socially, too, we have excelled, parties and hikes
served to weld our class into a solid unit and bring
school spirit to the front. The crowning peak of our brilliant social career
was the junior-Senior reception, held for the first time at the City Audito-
rium, and proclaimed by many as the best in years.
These many outstanding achievements are due not to the outstanding
qualities of a few individuals but to the high standards of leadership found
in the class as a whole.
The class was sponsored by the following members of the faculty: Miss
Pauline Holiday, Miss Dorothy Taylor, Miss Clarice Case, Miss Maurine
Morley, and Mr. Charles Hawkes. Officers of the class were: Morris
Beamer, president, George Burkholder, vice presidentg Maxine Hooper,
secretary, and Leonard Carney, treasurer.

the evening devoted to the study of Scotch literature in which the life and
Works of Robert Burns were stressed. A biographical sketch of his life was
given and a number of his interesting works were read. Helen Klover sang
two appropriate Scotch songs.

HIE COMMERCIAL Club of Abilene High School
was the largest departmental club in the school.
It was composed of sixty-six members and
sponsored by three capable sponsors, Miss Mina Lun-
den, Miss Mabel Pinson, and Miss Opal McPhail.
This club began in 1923 with about thirty members
and the membership has steadily increased each year.
The purpose of the club is to help the members to
get Z1 better idea of business by listening to talks given
by men and women in various lines of business, to af-
ford an opportunity of speaking in public by appear-
ing on club programs, to give training in parliamen-
MINA LUNDEN tary drill, and to develop leadership.
K. s. T. C., A. B. The club is open to all juniors and Seniors taking
C 1 b' L' M. A., . - s - .
Gum la nl the full Commercial Course. Those taking a major
subject may become associate members. The effort is to give practical
knowledge of modern business life to all the members.
The programs this year were very interesting. The club gave a chapel
play on March 22, entitled "Hooks and Crooks," and had monthly meetings
with a Christmas party and Hallowe'en celebration.
Officers of the club were: Fred Snider, president, VVayne Bunker, vice
presidentg Blanche llayne, secretaryg Annabelle Stark, treasurer, Della

The following officers were selected: John Case,
president, Naomi Chronister, vice president and chair-
man of the program committee, Charlene Schiveley,
secretary and chairman of the membership committee,
and John Stewart, treasurer. Miss Maurine Morley
was head sponsor of the club. The assistant Latin in-
structor in the high school is Mrs. Genevieve Andrews.

the themes were well carried out in the programs. Several were of partic-
ular interest for their correlation of Roman and modern customs.
A unique feature of the Hallowe'en party was fortune-telling on leaves
by the Cumean Sibyl. Christmas was celebrated by a "Feast of the Satur-
nalia" at which the members were dressed in Roman costumes. At the Val-
entine party Cupid and Psyche presented in a dramatic reading the story of
their love affair.
In March a meeting was held in honor of Julius Caesar, who was as-
sassinated on the ldes of March. The anniversary of the founding of Rome
in April, 753 B. C., was given due celebration. A
In February the club put on a movie entitled "The Last Days of Pom-
peii" which was instructive as well as entertaining.

HE MATHEMATICS Club has as its purpose the
learning of interesting and unusual things in the
field of Mathematics for which there is no time
in the class room with regular class work.
Meetings were held at least once a month and
often twice a month. Any student passing the Fresh-
man Algebra examination was eligible. Dues were
twenty-five cents a semester.
During the first semester the club devoted its at-
tention to the use of the slide rule. It was a unique
and interesting study.
Each member was responsible at the meetings in
second semester to report some timely phase of math-
ematics occuring in the world. Une meeting turned
to the discussion of great engineering projects for
which mathematics is very necessary. Some of these are Boulder Dam, the
new Holland Tunnel in New York and the Great Northern Tunnel.
Later in the year the fourth dimension, stories of early mathematics,
biographies of famous mathematicians, fallacies, magic squares, and code
writing occupied the attention of the club. Members were appointed by
the president to make special reports on these subjects.
The officers were: Leonard Carney, presidentg George Burkholder,
vice-presidentg Almeda Black, secretaryg Florence Stewart, treasurer.
The sponsors of the club were the two mathematics teachers, Miss Vera
Steininger and Miss Loreue Reynolds.

Science Club .
EORG.-XNIZING a club which had not been in op-
eration last year, the members elected the fol-
lowing officers: Paul Cassat, president, Carlos
Shafer, vice president, George Green, secretary-treas-
urer. The constitution was drawn up by a committee
composed of Carl Bath, chairman, Raymond Burn--
worth, and Carl Landis, with Mr. Hawkes as adviser.
The object of the club was to study scientific sub-
jects not included in the regular curricula of the
school and to provide an interesting and instructive
entertainment for its members. The programs were
divided between special speakers and the members.
Meetings were held every two weeks, at which
time talks on astronomy, radio, and aviation were glv-
en. The arrangement of the programs for the club
meetings was left to a committee of three appointed by the president at
each previous meeting. Most of the programs were concluded by a moving
uicture, run on the hiffh school machine, iertaininfr to the sub ect under

discussion. A Joint meeting was held with the Commercial, Club on Iann-
ary 28, at which time reels on Wiiitei' Sports in Canada, The U. S. Postal
System, and the Edison Battery were shown.
Therefore, we hope that the reorganization of this club will be a means
of instilling interest into the minds of the students along scientific lines,
and that the Science Club of future years will be a strong factor in helping
to keep the students of Abilene High School abreast with modern develop-
ments. The members feel that the present organization has accomplished
to some extent this purpose.

f NDER THE supervision of Miss Holiday, the
first year foods classes began their activities.
Early in November a plan was inaugurated
which established a school cafeteria. The first year
foods girls had charge of it and conducted the cafeter-
ia in a most systematic manner.
The class was divided into groups of three, and
each group was numbered. The Finance group made
out the menus, ordered the groceries, and looked after
the laboratory. The Dining Room group looked after
the sewing room and rearranged it into a dining room
every noon. They provided curtains for the win-
dows, and table covers of the same color. The ortho-
Home Economics phonic furnished the music during the meal. A third
group aided the Finance group in serving. Managers
were appointed and complete detailed reports of the expense were kept
of each day's meal. The second year foods class, with Mrs. A. E.
jones as instructor, took up work on menu building, budgeting, and market-
ing. Correct menus were made and studied. Expense accounts were fig-
ured and put in reasonable budget form, and various brands of food were

This class served three dinners during the year. The first was to the
School Board, the second to the debate team and sponsors, and the last to

These dinners gave the girls an opportunity to apply in a practical man-

Library and Study Hall
HEN THE SCHOOL library was opened in the
fall of 1919, there were 1,495 books on the
shelves. Now there are 3,290 books cata-
logued which shows an immense increase caused by
the larger school enrollments.
The books are all classified and indexed according
to the Dewey Decimal Classification system, which is
one of the most efficient for library work. The libr-
ary serves all departments and provides an excellent
reference section for use in research work.
' Important improvements have been made which
E'1LHEL.GILES include a new vertical file containing clippings and
lbrarian . .
Um. of Kan., A. B. pamphlets, arranged according to subject matter. A
card catalogue has also been placed in the library
which lists all books on the shelves. There are three reading tables and a
convenient newspaper and magazine file for the large number of current
newspapers and magazines which are secured for the use of the various de-
partments in school. Many new books are added each year to give a great-
er variety for the outside reading work of the students.
Uni. of Minnesota
A new plan has been adopted this year providing for English students,
preferably juniors, to assist Miss Giles one hour daily with library work.
Reading credit is given for this work and the plan has proved valuable for
the experience it gives to students in library work.
The study hall is connected with the library and has a seating capacity
for one hundred fifty-two students. It houses a number of cases contain-
ing valuable collections of numerous shells and other interesting curious.
Through the untiring efforts of Miss Ethel Giles, librarian, the library
has attained its high degree of efficiency in serving the school.

The Green Dragon Emerald
NE OF THE most dramatic and successful plays ever presented in
Abilene was given by the Senior class on April I2 at the City Audito-
rium. The play, "The Green Dragon Emerald," was suggested by an old
Chinese legend involving a Mah Jong set carrying a deathBf green dragon
The play opens with the reappearance of the Mah Jong set, which in-
volves Milford Ashley, james Childs, a wealthy American living in Peking,
and Corine, Kathryn johnson, his beautiful daughter. After a strange se-
quence of events and the appearance of Sang Wu, Perry Stark, a sauve,
brilliant and unfathomable descendent of the Manchus, Corinne mysterious-
ly disappears on the eve of a Kuomintang riot.
Ashley, aided by Robert Valentine, Rudolph Weyfaiit, Corrine's fiance,
the untiring efforts of Ty Lee, Ray Toliver, their faithful servant, and
Mammy, Vera Koch, Corinne's colored nurse, is unable to find the slightest
clue to Corinne's whereabouts. They are unceasingly harassed by the con-
stant occcurences of most unusual events.
Other characters were: Sam Weiitworth, a young American attache of
the consulate, Harold Kuglerg the Apparition, Blanche PaynegSui San, a
servant of Sang Wu, Margaret Bacon, Ah Ming, a servant of Sang Wu,
Dorothy May Green, Colonel Leighton, of the U. S. secret service, jack
Morrison, and Dr. James Willis, solver of the mystery, Martin Cheney.
Miss Esther Christmore, coach, deserves much credit for the success
of the play as does Miss Esther Turvey who had charge of the scenery
which included an elaborate sunken garden.
Miss Clarice Case had charge of the clever interludes which included a
Marionette dance given by jean Taylor, Lucile Kessinger, Katherine Keel,
and Dorothy Jensen. Dorothy Jensen also gave a clog dance.

rium on "Romeo and Jane," a Samuel French Royalty Play by Edward
The entire action of the play was laid in one set-the living room in
the house of Dr. Kenyon, Carl Bath, in Washiiigtoii, D. C. His two daugh-
ters, jane and Letty, were impersonated by Janet Hurd and Dorothy Faris.
"Plain" Jane spent her time and talents trying to make popular the con--
ceited and too talky Letty. john Rugh, as Philidor Ventura, nicknamed
"Romeo" by jane because he came over the wall, took the lead as the Crown

of the Federal Secret Service and nurse to Romeo, Earl Meulig General
Tancredi, aid to Princess Dagmar, Sterl McClintickg Princess Dagmar, Phil-
idorls aunt-in-law, Lillian Graff. All these added greatly to the success of
the play, due to the able coaching of Miss Dorothy Taylor.

were the Pony Boy Clog by Charlene Schiveley and Catherine Gleissnerg
Skaters Waltz by Iona May Morrison and jean Rogersg Harold Teen Drag
by Helen Froelick, Helen Habernian, Florence Stewart, Frances Kehler,
Jean Kessinger, Mary Olive Forney, George Burkholder, Carl Landes,
Fred Cole, Leonard Carney, John Case, and Kenneth Cavender.

Abilene succeeded in gaining her full share of the laurels as Vera Koch
placed first in Reading and Beulah Browning fourth in Oratory.
Vera Koch read "The Ruggles' Dinner Partyn by Kate Douglas Wiggiii
and received much favorable comment on her work and ability. Beulah
Browning orated on the subject, "The Present Significance of the Constitu-
tion," and showed improvement in her work since the first contest.
Beulah Browning also entered the Kansas City Star Oratorical Contest
and placed second in the county. The Star contests have grown in popu-
larity and have proved to be valuable practice for the League contest which
comes later in the year. Abilene was fortunate in being the place chosen
for the district contest this year with Mr. Gardner as district director.
Abilene's representatives in Reading and Oratory were chosen by pre-
liminary elimination contests. C. M. lflarger, Williaiii Scott, and Rev. von
Gruenigen acted as judges for the oratorical contest, ranking Beulah
Browning first, Donita McCulloh, second, and Cecil VVoody, third. Mrs.
Elliott Belden acted as judge for the Reading Contest ranking Vera Koch,
first, Sylvan Sidesinger, second, and Catherine Gleissner, third.
Miss Esther Christmore, assisted by Miss Ruth Hoffman, sponsored
and coached Abilene's entrants in Reading and Oratory and much credit is
due them for their efficient, untiring efforts to place these activities on a
higher, plane in A. H. S.

Ars Dicendi Club
HE ARS DICENDT Club of Abilene High School was organized by the
Dramatics class in january 1929, its purpose being to promote the wel-
fare of Dramatics in high school. The charter members drew up the
constitution and by-laws of the club. Meetings were held every Friday
afternoon. Miss Esther Christmore, who was sponsor of the club, outlined
at the beginning of the semester a program which was followed in the
During the eighteen weeks members prepared and delivered speeches
and orations, besides giving toasts, and interpreting eight readings in poetry
and prose of humorous, serious, dramatic and pathetic types. Three mock
banquets were held and menu cards with programs and color schemes made
them seem almost real. The following four one-act plays, with each mem-
ber taking some part, were presented for chapel: "Thank Goodness the Ta-
ble Is Spread," "Sauce for the Goslingsf' "The Trysting Place gn and
Those who took part in "Thank Goodness the Table ls Spread," were

HE YEAR of 1928-29 has been a busy one for the members of the
Argumentative club which is composed of the members of Miss Esther
Christmore's first hour English class. Beginning early in the year the
club's first event was the drawing up of a Constitution and a set of rules
which were voted upon and accepted by the club. ln October, there was
a Hallowe'en party in the cleverly decorated loft of the Hoffman farm.
Much fun was had with games and apple bobbing. The climax of the eve-
ning came when a few upper classmen made an unsuccessful attempt to
steal the refreshments.
At Christmas a party was held in the class room on the last day be-
fore the holidays. A beautiful Christmas tree and artistic decorations
brought the room and all in it more closely in touch with the season. Gifts
were exchanged, creating much fun and amusement. A stocking full of
candy and nuts was given to each of the members at the party.
The big success of the season was the combination of this club with
that of the third hour club for a Valentine party which was held at the
Hurd home in February. The evening was spent playing Progressive
Hearts. Dainty refreshments were served and clever favors were giveh to
And last but not least was another combination of the two clubs for a
second breakfast at the park. This was the last party of the year. All
enjoyed themselves immensely and after breakfast bid Uadieusl' to each
other and a "bon voyage" to their instructor and adviser, Miss Esther

Parliamentar Drill Club
HE PARLTAMENTARY Drill Club, under the direction of Miss Esther
Christmore, was formed in September, IQ28, for the purpose of prac-
ticing and understanding better the rules of parliamentary law. On
October 23 the constitution was drawn up by a committee consisting of Ed-
ward Gray, chairman, Norma Stocking, 'Paul Schmidt. Carl Landis, and
Esta Rufener, and adopted by the class. The club elected new officers ev-
ery six weeks. The former presidents were, in order of their office, as fol-
lows: Raymond Burnworth, Leonard Carney, George Green, and Ruth
Cook. The other officers included a vice president, a secretary, and a treas-
urer. In order to instruct every member of the club in parliamentary law,
the president appointed a different chairman at each meeting to conduct the
The club was not strictly a school club, as there were two parties, a
hike and a breakfast for the recreation and entertainment of the members.
The hike was held at Rush's grove in October. The first party was a
Christmas party held in class on the last day before the Christmas vacation,
at which gifts were exchanged, and candy in novelty containers distributed.
The class room was turned into a cozy living room with a fireplace,
Christmas tree, candle light, and other decorations which made it unusually
attractive. Bits of poetry in keeping with the receiver of gifts were read
aloud as each unwrapped his present.
The last affair of the year was a breakfast at Brown's park. After
boating, hiking, etc., all were ready to enjoy a hearty breakfast of bacon,
eggs, buns, and fruit.
The club had a total membership of thirty-one members and was spon-
sored by llfiss Esther Christmore, English instructor.

OR THE ANNUAL Hi-Y Minstrel was this year substituted a musical
comedy entitled "Molly," given at the City Auditorium February I.
"Molly" was directed by Mr. La Velle Hicks of Salina who has di--
rected several minstrels here in the past four years. Mr. Hicks carried his
own costumes and scenery with him.
The plot opened with Squire Briggs, played by Loren Welliiiaii, re--
minding Ephriam Higgins, Sylvan Sidesinger, of the mortgage that he held
on his farm. Molly, as Dorothy Faris, then takes it upon herself to keep the
old home place.
To do this, she and her mother, Lorna McClerey, decided to make the
farm into a summer resort. To this comes the high society from the East
-English gentlemen, society dowagers, and their children. Ralph Briggs,
John Rugh, helps Molly in her scheme and, of course, in the end falls in
love with her.
The comedy leads, Sam, played by Ray Toliver, and Percy Augustus
Witherspooii, played by La Velle Hicks, were well put on. Sam was the
colored hired man on the farm and kept the audience laughing during the

S A REWARD for outstanding vocal talent in music work during the
year twenty-one students were elected to membership in the Madrigal
Club, an honorary music organization. The members were selected
by the music instructor and the principal and were judged wholly on their
musical ability. Any persons who had won prizes in previous music con-
tests and were not members of this yearls glee clubs were also eligible if
they possessed the necessary qualifications.
The first club was organized four years ago and the idea was popu-
lar enough to be re-established this year. To attain membership in this
organization served as an incentive to do better musical work, and furn-
ished a goal for the students to reach, for only members who had unusual
musical talent were accepted.
The club entered the Central Kansas League Music Contest at Linds-
borg and sang the contest selection "A Day in june" by Dilson. This same
number was also sung at the benefit concert in April at the City Audito-
The Madrigal Club was one of the first to be organized at the opening
of school and has a small, selected membership, To be chosen for a mem-
ber of this organization is an honor of which anyone may be proud.
Members of the organization were Elizabeth Snyder, Helen Klover,
Helen jeffcoat, Jean Kessinger, Betty Shearer, Lillian Graff, Alice Carney,
Rita VVoodbury, Opal Scott, Catherine Gleissner, Perry Stark, Clifford
Knight, Robert Scott, Ranson Shelton, Harry Peck, Kenneth Cavender,

colm. Clara De Haven was accompanist for the club and Mrs. Ralph Heald

fact that prominent track men from all over the State were entered.

Girls' Hockey Team
T ITH THE beginning of the second year of
hockey, the game was renewed with great in-
terest under the direction of Miss Clarice Case.
More girls took part this year as a Junior-Senior team
The field has been improved and by next year will
be in the finest condition. Two tournaments, an in-
ter-gyin class and an inter-class one, were held.
The Juniors and Seniors were combined into one
team because so few of the upper classmen came out
for hockey. The Freshmen, under the leadership of
Ruth Schiller, played against the Sophomore team,
captained by Alineda Black, and lost with a score of
K. s. T. C., Emporia, 2-1. They were also defeated by the Junior-Senior
team, with a final score of I-0. The Sophomores
likewise lost to the Junior-Senior team, but with a close score, 3-I. The
teams were well matched, and the Junior-Senior team won only after hard
fighting. Dorothy Jensen, Senior. was captain of the victorious junior-
Senior team which was proud of its honor.
Phy. Ed. and Sci.
Each member of the winning team received 100 points in the Girls'
Athletic Association, and a small letter. This was a good beginning for the
association in Abilene High School, and with each sport entered this year,
more members were added.
Hockey and baseball have been the only outdoor sports for the gym
classes this year, but hockey is to the girls what football is to the boys, and
with interest in it increasing each year, it will soon be a leading sport for

HE NEW ATHLETIC FIELD, located on North Mulberry Street, has
this year been opened to the public. Plans for the field were made
by K. S. A. C. students under the general supervision of lllr. F. l..
Huff and space has been provided for most sports. There is space for hand-
ball courts, track, football field, baseball court, bleachers, tennis courts, and
a hockey field. Six tennis courts and one horseshoe court have been ar-
ranged for and all of these are open to the public.
A temporary field house will be constructed soon for storage of tennis
materials. ln time permanent field and bath houses will be built.
The field will now take the place of the old site at the City Park where
many athletic bouts have been held in previous years. lt is much closer
to the Junior and Senior High Schools, and will prove to be a more conven-
ient location in many ways.
A large scoreboard, the first one for Abilene High School, is to be
placed on the football field by the salesnianship class. A portable telephone
which the linesman will carry to keep the scoreboard keeper informed of
the plays will also be installed.
The purchase of the Athletic Field was due largely to the efforts of
the Board of Education in an earnest desire to encourage the advancement
of clean athletics.
Receipts from athletic contests have increased materially since the pur-
chase of the new field. The Athletic department has already paid 35600.00
on the cost of the new fence.

G. R. AND LITTLE SISTER PARTY
Girls pretending to be wickets and acting as balls in a human croquet
game was a feature of the annual G. R. Big and Little Sister party Septem-
ber II. After many other games, refreshments were served and, al-
though refreshments were the most important things to some, the meeting
in the auditorium was very important. Here the Girl Reserve Club was
explained and all guests were welcomed.
Callahan's grove was alive with sophomores September I3 when they
arrived for their picnic after school. After playing games, they ate until
they could eat no more and then came home.
ANNUAL STAFF CARNIVAL
With noise and confetti everywhere the Annual Carnival was staged at
the High School, October 5. While the "Never Tell Follies" and the G. R.
shows were continuously running in the auditorium, the booths in the gym
were scooping in the nickels.
The Comedy Hat Shop, the Beauty Parlor, and Lucky Radio had stir-
ring business. "Miss Abilene" in the Bathing Beauty contest won without
a doubt. The Art Gallery showed a great likeness to A. H. S. students and
the Freaks of Nature interested all.
In the main hall was a Japanese Garden where music was played and
juniors pepped up all outdoors when they left in cars for a picnic at
Rush's Grove October 15. Games of all sorts were played and at six o'clock
a supper of hamburgers, doughnuts, and apples was served.
Right after school, October 24, the Freshmen in overalls and corduroys
hiked to Morton's grove northwest of town. After spending an hour tak-
ing pictures and playing games each received a sack of food and enjoyed
the evening toasting marshmallows and frankfurters over a big fire.
STUDENT COUNCIL PARTY
The Student Council, which was a new organization this year, had a
party March 25, 1929. A dinner was served at the Tip Top Cafe. The ta-
bles were decorated in the school colors of orange and brown. From there
the students went to the picture show at the Lyric theater.

carried out in a clever, unique manner. The theme of Mother Goose was

gr ORANGE AND BROWN Q21 i
By RUDOLPH WEYANT
T WAS EARLY spring in I96S,iVVl1CH I bought a paper in Detroit, that
the headlines carried these words, "Snider nominated by Democrats for
President. Henry Smith, governor of Kansas, placed Snider in nom-
ination." This gave me an idea-why not trace every member of my class,
and see what success had come to them in the many years passed.
I had early amassed my fortune, so I immediately ordered a taxi, driv-
en by Loris Reed who is now married to Emma Long. I chartered a plane
at the airport and in the cockpit sat Bill VVhitehead. Clay White and Har-
old Wick were working about the port at odd jobs.
ln Kansas City, I met Shelton, who was working as head bell boy in
the hotel. Later I went to the theatre. The Class of '29 had certainly tak-
en to theatre life, for at the ticket window sat Lucile Baier. Clementine.
Martha, Doris, and Leota were all ushers in the place. Clara was organist
in the theatre. "Peg" Bacon was the little Chinese girl in "The Green
Dragon Emerald." H
Un the train were Toliver and Morrison. "Beer" had bought out Strow-
wig and "Butch" was running Shearer's Shoe Store. Morrison had married
Dorothy May Green, but Toliver had remained a bachelor.
Taking a street car in Abilene, which had become a metropolis, I saw
Carlos Shaffer, conductor. Verl Shaffer owns a farm near the city. Rainey.
De Haven, the Scott Brothers, Butterfield, and McBeth were also working
for the railway. Daisy Sweigart owns a chain of lunch stands. Victor
Viola was manager of the "Little bit of everything and nothing much of
Howard Marshall was mayor, and running an insurance business. Perry
Stark was a "movie man" working for Axhelm. Maurine Shawhan and
Stense Nelson were editing the Reflector. Deane Duffy was vice president
of the Farmers National Bank. Teare, Woolverton, Garten, Koby, and
Kugler are the farmers. C. W. Taylor has become Deane's father-in-law.
Arthur I-laugh is superintendent of Abilene Schools, and Dorothy Jenson
is in charge of physical training for girls.
Madaus has a soft job at Belle Springs making butter. Kathryn is
married and her name is Sexton. Edith and Myrtle have entered the Old
Folks' Home. Elsbeth is waiting for "Hank" to graduate so they can be
married. Harry Peck is a bigger man every day-mentally, not physically.
Genevieve, Edith, Lillie, Mary Emma, Beatrice, Lucile, Helen, and
Blanche are all wives of deserving husbands. Orpha, Marie, Lois, Arline,
Estella, and Evelyn are working for the United. Berger is behind the bars,
working as assistant porter in the Abilene National Bank. "Jimmy" Childs
is a captain in the Salvation Army and Beulah Brown is his good wife.
Cheney, Chase, Cooley, Wellman, Course, and Tudor haven't decided what
kind of work they want to take up yet. Cahill, Larson, and Kauffman are
the men about town. Hazel Chrisco is married and so is Don Jolleye.
Marie Roemer is president of the Women's Federated Clubs of America.
She intends to block the election of Fred Snider because he stands for "Wine,
Women, and Whoopeef' One day I ran across Jack Worley, he told me that
Miss Reel had been married to him and several other men, but was still
looking for a perfect mate.
My quest was now completed. The Class of '29 had taken its place well
in the world of men, and with this completion, there came a feeling of sat-
isfaction and contentment which I had long been seeking.
