I'd have Miss Wilhelm do Geometry by the ton, And I'd show Miss Converse that Zoology wasn't fun- I'd make her outline every insect And put the outline into songg I'd show Miss Miller how to act andlhow to English get, I'd have her write -a dozenithernes on thelfriature, of a fit, I'd let Miss' Paynter 'sing the "'Pirate's Chorus" 15 times a day And when tif everj she got tired, she could sing some other lay. I'd have Miss Rawlings bake some bread that simply would not sink And if O'Brien still was here I'd buy a lot of ink And have him write me many drafts, till his arm went on the blink. But what's the use of sayinghthis, For many a day 'Twill be E're I from longingto getlyevell ' Will ever be set free.-D. K. The Little Flag on Our The little flag on our house, Is floating all the day, Beside the great big Stars and Stripesf You can almost hear it say, To all the folks on our street, When the breezes make it dance, "Look up and see my one blue star, We've got a boy in France." The little flag on our' house, It floatsvlsometirnes-4 at- night," 1, 1 And you1can see itfway up therein ' When -the street lamp shinesjust right l And sometimes, lengl towards-morning, ' When ,the coplcomes by' perchance, l e '- It signals vyithlits one-blueastar, " V' i "We've got a boy in France."f: .- The little flag on our house, Will wave and wave and wave, Until our boy comes home again, Or finds in France his grave, Nay! tho its blue star turn to gold, Because of war's grim chance, It still shall wave, to say House "Thank God, we've got a boy in France!"-Exchange. 4 L X DEDICATION. i In recognition of his untiring work and unilagging interest in all our activities and the success which we have attained through his efforts, we, the students of Albany High School, dedicate this, the Nineteen Eighteen Whirlwind Annual to Mr. W.

Senior Poem In nineteen fourteen, giddy and green, We formed our class of Old Eighteen. For four years straight we've worked together, But school room ties we now must sever. To our brave boys has come the call Of freedom in distress, for all And many of our school-mates, dear, Have left our class to volunteer. All honor to their hearts so true, Their loyalty and courage, too We hope to see them all once more With laurels gain'd on foreign shore. While we who have been left behind To do our bit, we've set our mind, With Liberty Bonds and Red Cross drives We'll work for funds to save their lives. The faculty we wish to thank And ask them to forgive each prank. Their patience we have often tried, Though now we're loath to leave their side. We love them for their task well done. May we fulfill in years to come Each hope for usg and realize The help they gave by inspiring lives. Good-by, dear Freshies, Sophomores too, Juniors learned. We hope that you Will credit bring to old A. H. S. And wish you luck and great success.-Melba H LENA ELIZABETH TOBEY "Pete." "When the lark in heav'n rains forth his song as he soars." Entered 1914.

Class History Four years ago. How long that sounds. And yet what a short time it seems since the day we first gathered together as Freshmen, far back in the old days of '14, Don't you remember still, fellow Seniors, that glorious, awesome year? Can't you recall that wonderful Freshmen reception they held for us down in the Manual Training D '- partment, and up in Room One, with the games, the music, the chattering, and the enticing ice cream and green frosted cakes -those excrutiatingly exciting football games, where your blood, green little Freshie that you were, threatened to fairly congeal in your veins, lest Briggs or Duncan or Archibald or any of the other fellows should have the breath fairly knocked out of his body? And now the Football boys of '14 are grown men-some married, some seeking fortunes of their own, but more of them are upon the battle field of war. And the green little Freshie in knee trousers, who used to gaze upon them with such admiration, is now a grave Senior, or perhaps has already gone to cast his lot in this great world struggle. So time fiies. As swiftly did our Freshmen year and soon we were Sophomores. The Second year was as good as the first-only better. This was an opportune time for the girls in particular, for it marked the entrance of girls athletics into the school. And this first year so inspired the '18 girls that they started the good work in basketball for which they are yet famous. Nor were the boys less successful, for they too won the champion basketball numerals this year. This was one of our happiest years, for it proved to be the last time in which our jolly bunch could be together for the entire year. Last year-our Junior year--what a glorious one. A happy beginning and a sad yet proud ending. What pleasant times we had together. The -girls, encour- aged by the preceding year, again went into basketball with vim and spirit and again won the class championship. Then as a fitting close to a successful year, many of the most prom- inent of our members bade the class a last farewell and left school days forever to join in the long ranks of khaki-clad sons of Freedom. And now at last we are Seniors. If our first two years were good, and our Junior year even better, surely this last year is best of all. Altho we have held some lively meetings, and have had hot discussions, they are all of a more or less friendly nature, and circumstances have proven that we have enough class spirit to hang together when one of our members, or class property is molested by another class. The end of our High School life is very near now. Soon we will look back on the past four years as but a memory. And when that time comes, petty differences, slight disagreements, rivalries-all these will disappear and only the best parts re- main, until our High School days seem as a beautiful, shining light along the pathway of life. Class Prophecy London, England, April 4, 1935. Dear Ruth: How delighted I was this morning on arriving in London from my tour around the world, to find a nice letter from my old friend and class-mate, Ruth Lochner. On opening it and eagerly scanning the news, the thing that took my eye was the fact that our old class-mate, Raymond Nebergall is the Repub- lican nominee for President of the United States, and Henry Harnisch for Vice-President. Won't that be fine to have two out of our '18 Class to hold high Government offices. I must tell you Ruth about my wonderful trip around the world, and my meeting with all our old class-mates of 1918. My first visit was here in London and whom do you sup- pose I met here but Janet Dawson, the wonderful violinist and Prima Dona of all Europe? I had heard so much of this noted musician that I hastened to hear her and you can imagine my surprise on seeing her to find it to be Janet. While talking after the performance, she asked me if I had seen her piano accompanist. Before I had a chance to reply, who should ap- pear but Nathiel Donaca, her accompanist. We had a good chat reviewing old times and Janet told me that Lucile Snyder was in the same city doing wonderful work as a Red Cross Nurse. She is doing some of the greatest work of the world today. In Paris, I met Lee Fortmiller and visited her studio. I saw some of the most marvelous paintings I had seen in all my travels. One in particular was very grand. It took first prize at the world's fair and was later purchased by the Queen of England for the fabulous price of S-500,000. This painting is known thruout the world and is called, "Twilight at Albany." Ronald Reid lives in Rome, Italy, and belongs to the large class of literary musicians which have developed in the last twenty years. He has composed many beautiful pieces as well as having contributed to the best musical magazines of Europe. He writes in that clear beautiful style, which has made him famous from the first. From here I sailed for Africa and I visited Ralph Taylor, who now has his headquarters at Timbuctoo and is spending all his time, energy, and capital in trying to irrigate the Sa- harra Desert. He has thousands of negroes at work, and is spending millions of dollars. He is positive that in fifteen years the Saharra can be made as productive as any state in the Union. While still in Africa, I journeyed to that widely known African Airplane Manufacturing Company, which is situated in Northern Africa. I had heard so much of its won- ders that of course I decided to visit it. Upon arriving there I noticed a familiar name printed on the door and familiar faces within. I certainly was surprised to learn that this famous factory was owned and operated by Merle and Mertice Buchner. They took our party for a flying trip in an airship, which they had invented, and it was so perfected as to reach the Heavens. We formed a merry party and sailed away to the Moon. After arriving there we toured the planet in a boatomobile, which is a combination of the old automobile and gasoline launch, and runs at approximately two hundred and fifty miles an hour on either land or water. We stopped at a place called Lasselle, and the driver took us at once to visit that famous and widely known college of condensed education, and there we were shown thru the large institution and interesting buildings by the man who contrived this wonderful concern, he being the Dean of this condensed college, and Ruth, you can imagine my astonishment to find Percy Lasselle to be this great educator. He had devised a thinking machine so that one year of light work will pass you through this school and pre- pare you to enter into any University in the United States or Europe. He said, "Irene, I've prepared this course all by my- self-if someone had only invented such a great improvement in our day, what trouble and thinking it would have saved us." You see, Ruth, that Percy retains the same old love for books as he did in our school days of 1918. From here we toured the country and the wonderful grain fields. Even the North Dakota grain fields, don't compare with those in certain parts of the Moon. One in particular was very fine. This place was owned by John Terhune. He had the most wonderful farm machinery I had ever seen. I no- ticed one piece in particular, which was a thresher, which cut, threshed, and ground the grain into flour, all at once. This wonderful piece of machinery was made in the factory owned by Russel Cooper. When we were about to leave the Moon, we were standing on the depot platform, not expecting to see any more 18'ers, but hero again we were pleasantly surprised and met Howard Jones. After our exchange of greeting We asked him what he was doing in the Moon, and he replied, "What am I doing? Nothing-only doing the people with my lightning rod scheme." Returning to earth, and landing at Naples, Italy, I visited the great American Hospital and was surprised to find Amna Hoflich, the head nurse. Naturally we talked of our old school days and class-mates and she told me Ethel Bussard was a teacher in one of the public schools in the same city. Passing North from Italy, we entered the Republic of Austria, which comprises the old Kingdoms of Germany and Austria-Hun- gary. We were met at the station in Vienna by Hon. Edmund Way, the United States Ambassador to Austria. From Vienna I went to Constantinople, where I found Miss Ruth Beal, who is no doubt the most popular Woman in the New Republic of Turkey, for to her is given the credit of Christianizing this once barbarous people. My next stop was in Moscow, Russia, where I attended a great prohibition rally. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the principal speaker of the evening was Kamilla Kroschel who with the aid of Jean Salisbury, editor and publisher of the Moscow Daily Sun is doing great work toward carrying the spirit of Dry America into Russia. On returning to America by way of Amsterdam, I saw Neil Johnson as I went to buy my ticket, who is General Pass- enger Agent for the American Holland Steamship Co. My first stop in my native country was in New York, where I met two more of my class-mates. The first one was Florence Ryder, who is now a most wonderful court stenographer, and is closely associated with the Government. Della Stover also lives here and is doing artistic designing and is the most widely known dress maker of America. I took a trip up the Hudson to Albany and there I met the great criminal lawyer. He tries the most noted cases of' the United States and Europe. It is hardly necessary to give his name as you know Edward Umphrey by his reputation and wide fame. From Albany I traveled west to Buffalo, where I met Lena Tobey, who is thrilling large audiences with her bird-like melodies. Going from here to Chicago, I had the pleasure of riding with Vernon Henderson, who is now the star pitcher for the World's Champion Chicago White Sox. "Hendy" as he is still called, is the idol of the Chica-go fans and last year Won a fine automobile for being voted the most valuable player in the game by the American League Baseball Managers. 'J-1 On arriving at my hotel in Chicago, I met Carolyn Wright, who had just been awarded a Government contract for carry- ing registered mail from Chicago to San Francisco in her big new By-plane, "The Flying Fish." Carolyn was kind enough to invite me to ride with her as far as Minneapolis, where I met Ruth Rawlings, who is touring the west in the interest of the rights of the American Women. In St. Paul, I visited the musical studio of Grace and Mabelle Anderson. I attended a delightful recital which was given by them. Oh, yes, Ruth, Ethel Rucker is principal of the Great Groucher Seminary for Girls-you know that's just out from Baltimore, and Henrietta Volstedt is Dean of Wellesley College. No longer are all our great singers coming from Italy, but America boasts of the World Famous Singer, Madame Eva Thacker. She rivals Calalal, Madame Schumann Heink and others of high rank. At Rochester, Minnesota, I met Helen Grigsby and La Verne Hoflich, who are nurses in the famous Mayo Hospital. Dr. William Mayo, showed us through the institution and told us how impossible it would be for him to manage the Hospital without such reliable nurses as these girls. I visited the Bad Lands in North Dakota. At Madora, I met Eva Olmstead the great cattle queen. She settled here years ago, and became so interested in the inhabitants and the range, that she quickly climbed the ladder of success. Next I went to Butte, Montana, and visited the great cop- per mines. Here I found Blanche and Edna Jones, bookkeep- ers and accountants for the Anaconda Copper and Mining Co. Their services are in great demand--Edna being in the lumber otlice and Blanche in the mining department. Doloras Hiner is the instructor of French in the Univer- sity of Montana, at Misoula, and Dorothy Hoadley is the Eng- lish teacher at the University of Idaho. Nellie Burns is making a great success as a Patriotic Movie Actress. She is taking the place which Theda Bara held in our day. In all of the libraries which I visited, I found great books written by Mary Harnisch. I believe she is the most quoted author of today. In one of the great libraries in Boston, I found several of her books, and Elsie Frietag was the librarian in this popular library. I spent a great deal of my time in Newport, Oregon, the metropolis of the world, and here I met Hazel Gilbert and Ardys Doughton, graduates of the University of Michigan Law l. They are practicing law under the business title of Doughton and Gilbert, Lawyers. In the same building with them were so many noted people, that I thought I would take the elevator and look around. When I arrived at the thirty- iifth story, I decided to inspect things and the first sign I notic- ed read "Eastman and Arnold, Lady Chiropractors." I went in and had a fine visit with Olivene Eastman and Mina Arnold. They told me that just across the street from them was the famous lady photographer-to go over and see her. I told them I didn't care to see a photographer, but they insisted so I went, and there to my great astonishment, I saw Elepha Cum- mings. After remaining in the metropolis a few days more I hastened to my old home of Albany, and the evening I arrived home I picked up the "Albany Daily Democrat," and there I read several new bills which had been introduced into the Senate by Senators Melba Hower and Florence Lawson. I guess in my whole tour of the World, Ruth, I had one of the best visits with Helen Livingood in Washington, D. C. Doesn't it seem strange to think that Presidential Election is over, and she is the first lady of the land? After I returned to London, I went into a book store to get a book which everyone was raving about. It was writ- ten by the famous comic author, Har-old Irvine. He writes mostly on table etiquette. I just finished reading one of his works, and to give you an idea of his comedies, I'll quote a few of his rules: 1.-"When dinner is announced, make a jump for your chair, and try to be the first one seated. You will be compli- mented for your speed." 2.-"If there isn't a piece of linen beside your plate, tuck your handkerchief under your chin. This will keep your vest clean except from soup and gravy, which is bound to leak through." " 3.--"If you get a spot on the tablecloth, butter a piece of bread and place it butter side down over the spot, so it won't slip off." 4.-"If you spill your coffee in your neighbors lap, hasten to assure him that you didn't want the coffee anyway." He wrote several other books. A few of the titles are: 1.-Sailing, Sailing into the Vituals and Drinks." 2.-"My Country 'Tis of Thee, Hungry Internally." Nellie Nygren is now the greatest scientist of all Europe. Shel has her chemical laboratory in this city and has made a great success in the development and uses of various metals and chemicals. Her latest problem is making gold out of radium. Well Ruth, I have made a determined endeavor to give you an account of my travels and what our old class-mates are doing on the proverbial sea of life. Kindly excuse all grammatical errors as my private sec- retary is on her vacation. Yours sincerely, Irene Helen Barrett, '18. P.

Q, MEMGRY The fiery sunset glows behind the western hills, As out upon the dewey evening air Floats the rapturous melody of the Whippoorwills, Rivaling the song of the Nightingale, sweetly rare. Nature clothes old Earth again, with a dress of brightening green, The blossoms bend and smile at the wind's light caresses As flowers, everywhere, in woodland and mountain ravine Coquette so prettily in their scented, silken dresses. Far back in a silent, deeply brooding wood, A pheasant sends sounds of his salient thrummingg And near the garden, where a clinging honeysuckle stood A humming bird keeps up a continuous humming. As one sees the lure of nature's call- The sights and sounds of growing things, the wind's sweet sighing, He knows that there is a life behind it all- Yet some things are always dying. Thus it is with our school days, All their pleasures, sorrows,-mysteries, Like our Junior year, must in reality, pass away, But will ever flourish in that wonderful garden, Memory -D. P. '19. D l ! .

Taylor, Ray Sophomore History 1916-1917-ROCKS. In September, 1916, 120 Green Freshmen registered at Junior High to absorb a little knowledge. We organized quickly and elected the following class oflicers: Kenneth Burnett ..............,............. President. Benjamin Gerig ....,.. . ....,o.... Vice-President Beulah Delancey ........,................... Secretary ' Rachael Lines .......,....,..... Class Reporter We also chose at this time Green and Orange as our class colors. Our President and Class Reporter went to Senior High at the end of the first semester, which made it necessary to elect Eugene Hornback as President, to take the place of Kenneth Burnett, and Hubert Fortmiller Class Reporter, to take the place of Rachael Lines. During the Freshman Year we furnished two good foot- ball men for the Champion Football Team of Oregon-George McBride and Jay Willard. In H. S. Basketball "Bud" Moore represented the "Rocks" and won a letter. Jay Willard also made the High School Basketball Team, but was not lucky enough to get to playhis two winning halves. We also showed up well in class athletics our first year. Our Class Basketball Team won from the Sophs by a large score, and it was not until after a hard fought game with the Juniors that we lost the Class Basketball Championship. We also had a good Baseball Team during our Freshman year. Though a little scared at Hrst, we were soon instilled with the old H. S. fight and pep, and turned out to all High School activities. At some of the Football Rallies there were more Rooks than all the other classes put together, and We soon Won the reputation of having the most pep in High School. 1917-1918-SOPHOMORES. The following September, we assembled at Senior High and were first introduced to the way the upper classmen do thin-gs. At once we noticed that our numbers had decreased and that many familiar faces were missing. Some had left this vicinity, and others had joined some branch of the service. We soon became familiar with the ways of Albany High School and can now realize why the Alumni can never forget their clays in A. H. S. We again organized and.e1ecglggi the following officers: Jay Willard ..,....... I ...... ....:g...t ........... President Dorothy Clark .... Q..-QQ.- ..... Vice-President Myron Ryals L.-. ........

During all this ,y-ear, Class '20 has not lost it's reputation of beingfthe, 'liveliestblassl-Ailn H.,S.,','and'it's.n1embers have taken an active part in student body, athletic association and all High School:activiti'es. A A 'Q H ' 1 There are still two years before us and greater things are still to be expected from 'Cl-ass '20.' - So .our activities will not soon be forgotten in the annals 'of Albany 'High School. Sophomore Poem We're the Sophomore Class of the Albany High, We're sometimes witty and sometimes dry, We're sometimes merry and sometimes grave, But we're always gritty and always brave. The Albany High School leads the state, In that we're studious and up to date. In current events and text book work Our Sophomores will never shirk. But the Sophomore kids, both girlsand boys, Are often naughty and make a noise, 'Till the teachers agree and fully discuss That Satan has nothing at all on us. Still we go to school in the morning bright With a purpose true and a heart that's light With a worthy aim, and a head that's full ' Of brains that are remarkable.-D. K. Good-bye Old Class Good-bye We were proud to say we were Sophomores It isn't our wish to remain. We all believe in progressing, To go higher is everyone's aim. The years passed leaves fondest memories, And some bid our old class adieu, And climb the next round in the ladder, Reach the top. We all wish to do. Goodbye old class says the Sophomores, This year we'll always remember Some go on, others remain, When the new year starts in September. We will not mourn to leave you, We have no cause to sigh. It's hard to part with trusty friends, Goodbye fold classj goodbye.-W. J.

Freshmen History Although there is a saying, that "Freshmen should be seen and not heard", we, the Freshmen Class, don't agree. Maybe it hasn't occurred to some people that we have eighty- seven members in our class, and though they are seen, they are also heard. For instance, think of some of the poor, broken hearted upper classmen that have been made to realize they are really alive, just by the bright and smiling faces of many a Winsome Freshman maid. Then think of the boys that have tried to keep up the good name of the School, and have succeeded by their good work on the different teams. Our Class has been well represented in the Athletic line, and we are proud to say that three of the Football eleven, were members of our Class, and that they did some splendid work. In Basketball, we had a team of our own, and even though they thought we were little and insignificant, we Won over the upper classmen by quite a few points. We also had two on the regular team, and they helped to make the team get the good reputation it did. As for Baseball, We aren't sure as yet, but almost all the Freshmen boys have turned out for practice, and it looks as though there was some hope for a good team. Pertaining to Tennis, we think we stand a pretty good chance of winning from some of the upper classmen, as we have a few players that are noted for their work. So, altogether, we think We've made pretty good for our first year in High School, and we hope we can continue the good work the rest of our school years. Freshman Poem We keep thinking in the evening, Of the days that have gone by. When we enter school as Freshmen In the good old Junior Hi. But those days at last are over And vacation's nearly here, Still we love to linger longer On the days we love so dear Farewell, oh you Latin teacher, Algebra and Science, too The work was hard, but we've worked gladly, And we know that we've been true. Farewell then all you teachers, You have kindly helped us thru, Though we may be gone in person, Still our thoughts ar back with you.--R. N.

FLORENCE RYDER, '18 LUCILE LONGBOTTOM, '19 HUBERT FORTMILLER, '20 FLORENCE FORTMILLER, '21 NOTICE.-At the last moment as the Annual was being completed, it was found that there was so much material that the size of this years Annual had to be increased to 164 pages instead of 144 as it Was last year. EDITORIALS Faith If you were asked to name the greatest curse of modern life, what would you answer? Probably everyone of you something different, and yet boiled down to plain facts, it is just this: "Too much cynicism and too little faith." Not faith in God alone. This isn't a sermon, and prob- ably nine out of every ten of you are good Christians, or at 'least profess to be. The average man, High School student, and alas, even the small child-of today has lost faith in man- kind and in all things that go to make up this busy, interesting world. How often when you go to the movies and see some thrill- ing performance, how often do you remark, "Oh well, he didn't really do that. They used a dummy, of course." When you hear of some -great man doing a noble act, do you pull down the corners of your mouth and sneer, "He gets something out of that, I'll bet. He don't do it for nothing, believe me?" When something is suggested, do you complain pessimistically, "Oh no, it's no use of trying that in this dead town," or "Yes, that would be fine in a class with as little pep as this ?" If you do these things, gentle reader, the joke is on you. For you do not know that in most every instance a real person and not a dummy is used in the movies, because the directors understand and appreciate their audiences-that the great man does get somethin-g out of it, but not in the sense you mean and that herein lies his greatness, that the town and class is made up of individuals just like you and that if it lacks "pep" it is because you yourself are lacking in this quality. Wake up to the fact that this is a pretty good old place, after all, that the poet was right when he said: "The world is so full of a number of things I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings," and that as long as "God's in His Heaven," all will be well with the world. Remarks by the Editor We wish to thank Mr. Churchill, the School, the Staff, the Faculty and our Advertisers for their hearty cooperation and help on the Whirlwind Annual, and we wish especially to thank Miss Alice Wilhelm, Miss Lulu Heist, Mr. E. A. Hudson, Miss Madeline Rawlings, Edmund Way, Miss Patterson, Miss Con- verse and Irene Barrett for the extra work they have done. 5 Q We should have liked to put out a larger and better An- nual this year than ever before, but as it was not possible to expend the money necessary for a larger publication, we have tried to improve on the "quality" rather than the "quantity." We hope that each one of our readers will feel a personal interest in the Annual, and tho we have tried to please every- one, we hope that we have not like the old man and his son in the fable, "succeeded in pleasing none." As you will no doubt notice, special attention has been given the Soldier and Sailor Boys this year, by having a patri- otic cover design and a special section devoted to "Our Boys." This is because we realize what the boys are doing for us, and because we want them to realize that all of us far back in old A. H. S. are constantly thinking of them, and are ever looking forward to the time when they can once more join in our High School activities and sports.-The Editor. L...J wif i ll Y-Sallie' V THE STAFF. QB17gEIIIiZ6IfiUII5 A. H. S. Debating Team Debating The debating season started without much hope of success, as the material Was all new. But after the tryout and the election of the teams, which resulted in Harold Irvin and James Sears, negative, and Ruth Lochner and Elton Lasselle, affirmative, we took on new hope. The question to be debated on was, "Resolved that the U. S. should abandon the Monroe Doctrine." After much hard labor on the part of the debaters, it was found necessary to change the teams, and this resulted in the selection of the final teams consisting of Ruth Lochner and Irene Barrett, affirmative, and Harold Irvin and Elton Lasselle, negative. Both teams worked hard, and on Jan. 11, came the clash. Albany's negative team was to meet Salem at Salem, Albany's affirmative to meet Oregon City at Albany. The negative team with Mr. Young, our former principal left at three o'clock for Salem, via the Oregon Electric, A nd later reported arriving there safe and sound. They were meet at the station and taken to the school, and later to dinner by the debate manager. Although they were defeated by a unani- mous vote, it was not the fault of our debaters, as the Salem debaters were both old at the business. Harold and Elton arrived home at eleven o'c1ock, saying that Salem had treated them as fairly as any one could, even if they were defeated. The Oregon City team was met here and taken to the Hotel for dinner. The debate was called at 8:00 o'clock, and a large crowd attended. But of course the old Albany Spirit was in the air, and the afiirmative team, Ruth Lochner and Irene Barrett defeated them by a two to one decision. The girls had the pep and spirit and certainly did themselves proul The Oregon City team was good, and advanced good arguments, but did not have the come-back spirit that our team had. These two debates closed the season for Albany and the teams were awarded their ofiicial A's at a Student Body Meeting. It was then decided that we have inter-class debates in order to promote more class spirit. The first two debates Senior Champion Class Debating Teams Ralph Taylor, Irene Barrett, Ronald Reid Percy Lasselle, Harold Irvine, Ethel Bussard, Ruth Lochner. were held at the same time. The Senior affirmative met the Junior negative, and the Junior affirmative the Sophomore negative. The question argued was: "Resolved that Congress pass a Daylight Saving Bill." The debates were held in the assembly and the Senior Reg- istration rooms. The Seniors were upheld by Ronald Reid, Irene Barrett and Ralph Taylor, against Morris Hayes, Lucilc l.ongbottom and Francis Schrode, of the J uniorsg the J unior's, Elton Lasselle, Josephine Lee and Tressa Case, against Roy Harris, Ianthe Smith and Harold Hoflich. The decision rex- dered were: Senior vs Junior unanimous for the Seniois. Junior vs Sophomore, two to one in favor of the Juniors. The dobators then started working for the second debate, thc question to bc "Resolved that all labor disputes should be settled before a legal board of arbitration." Ronald Reid, Irene Barrett and Ralph Taylor, Senior negative was met by Hubert Fortmiller, Vera Brown and Edward Sox, Sophomore afiirmative. Harold Irvin, Ruth Lochner and Percy Lasselle, Senior afiirmative, were to meet Elton Lasselle, Josephine Lee and Tressa Case, Junior negative, but unfortunately Ruth Lochner became ill a few days before the debate, and Ethel Bussard was then elected to take her place. Much enthusiasm was shown at this debate, and more shown when the decision was rendered. A unanimous decision for the Seniors. The Seniors were then Class Champions and received their .numer- als at a Student Body Meeting and are justly proud of their -good looking numerals. In these debates the Class Advisors acted as coaches and enough can not be said of the hard work of Miss Burch, Senior Coach, as well as Miss Wilhelm, Junior and Miss Converse, Sophomore. This closed the debating season with the deter- mination of the Juniors to win next year. So here's "Good Luck" to them.-Ethel Bussard, '18.

Home Economics Club Our Aim.--To interest girls in the Domestic Science and Art Courses so that they may become better home makers. Now, doesn't that sound interesting? It is, too, and if you don't believe it, ask any of our members and each one will gladly tell you of the benefits and pleasures derived from the club this year. The Home Economics Club was organized in the fall of 1915, under the direction of Miss Lillian Thordarson, Mrs. Miller, and Miss Winifred Patterson, and has each year become more popular with the girls. It is both entertaining and in- structive, for an excellent program is rendered at each meet- ing, and either papers prepared by the members on some inter- esting subject pertaining to the,Economics courses, are read, or an interesting speaker is secured to address the girls. The Club has been fortunate in securing several well known lectur- ers during the past year. On October 31st, Miss Bertha Ed- wards, of O. A. C. gave a demonstration of war breads, Feb- ruary 13, Miss Cole, also of O. A. C. gave a very interesting talk on "Vocations for Girls", then, on March 26th, Dr. G. B. 'Young of this city delivered an address on the history of the Red Cross, which was greatly appreciated by the members. The program for each meeting is in the hands of the Chair- man of the Entertainment Committee, who is elected at the annual election. Miss Ruth Rawlings has very capably filled this office during the year, and introduced the plan of giving class programs. This produced the spirit of competition be- tween the different classes which added a great deal of enthu- siasm to the meetings. One or more social functions are held each year by the C lub, and this year was no exception. At Christmas time an unusually good time was enjoyed at the home of Miss Virginia Rathbone, when she opened her home for the Annual Christ- mas meeting. After a covered dish supper was indulged in by the girls, they were invited into the living room where a gaily ornamented Christmas tree stood loaded with "valuable" gifts for each member. Santa Claus reigned supreme for the rest of the evening, after which all departed, voting the even- ing one long to be remembered. Virginia left soon after to attend a Girls' Boarding School at Oakland, California. The Club was very sorry to lose one of its most active members, but wish her well in her new surroundings. Altogether, membership in the Club has afforded an op- portunity to become better acquainted with the problems of Home Economics and the added knowledge thus gained along this line will no doubt "do its bit" in securing generally better home and living conditions. WAR AND THE HOME ECONOMICS COURSE. An interesting feature of the Home Economics work is being conducted by Miss Madeline Rawlings, Domestic Sci- ence Teacher. Every Wednesday night Miss Rawlings demon- strates "Hoover," or substitute dishes. These lectures have become very popular, especially as there is always a generous "sample" of the "goodie" for each spectator. Miss Patterson's Domestic Art classes are doing splendid work in the war line. This year the -girls do not spend any of their time making frivolous or any but the absolutely neces- sary garments. They also have donated their time and labor to the Red Cross and Belgian Relief work, making many clothes for the Belgian babies and refugees. The Home Economics Club enjoyed a very practical and interesting lecture recently when a special lecturer from O. A. C. spoke on the Remaking of Slightly Worn Garments. She brought with her about twenty attractive children's garments, all made from almost impossible appearing models. Miss Rawlings' Domestic Science classes are studying Food conservation. All dishes are made with substitutes, whenever possible and every Tuesday morning the girls report on the latest newspaper accounts of conservation. jlllusif ,d 3 O aa 3 U Aw ... :- ..-. U Girlis Glcc Club Eva Thacker, President. Lucile Longbottom, Secretary-Treasurer, The Girl's Glee Club is one of the most promising organ- izations of the Albany High School. The members of the Club numbering about sixty, have thoroughly enjoyed their years Work under the direction of Miss Paynter and feel justly proud of the results achieved through her effort. No public performances have been given, but the girls have mastered many diflicult songs, and have -gained an added appreciation of music and it's interpretation. This fact was probably proven by the appearance of the Club on the Christmas Student Body Program, When, judging by the applause, the singing of the girls was certainly appreciated. The Club has held a number of social gatherings, chief of which was held at the home of Miss Esther Tellefson, in the early part of the year. After numerous games hadpgeen play- ed and prizes awarded, the girls enjoyed a sumptuous cafateria supper. During the remainder of the evening impromptu solos and piano selections Were rendered. Although the Club will lose a large number of its Senior members in June, yet the outlook for next year is bright, as there is still a great amount of excellent talent left in the school. The girls are all striving to make it a larger and better Club than ever, and invite all members of the Student Body to watch them "go over the top" in music next year.- M. R. R.

The Glee Club is composed of a select number of famous singers, and is the most distinguished association of its kind in this country. Included among its artists are the famous tenor, Mr. George Lines, who has been much lauded in the musical cen- ters of this country and Europeg and the eminent basso, Mr. Francis Schrode, who has appeared in Vienna, Leipsig, Paris and London before the war and who has been on tour in South America recently. The Glee Club also boasts of the remark- able tenor, Lural Burggraf, who is known to all music lovers as one of the most deli-ghtful interpreters of Irish ballads. A forceful baritone is Marion Kizer, who is with the Metropolitan Opera Company, New York. Mr. Gordon Kendall is a bass singer with a wide range and extremely pleasing expression. Mr. Glen Marquis is an excellent tenor and has had wide experience. The star of the Company is Mr. Glenn Jackson, the favor- ite tenor. Although yet in his youth, he is mature in his accomplishments, having infinite wealth of power, beauty, and variety of tone and expression. He has been a pupil of the distinguished coach and teacher, Royal Archibald, Mus. Doc., who says of him: "In all my experience I have never heard such an infinitely beautiful tone, as that produced by Mr. Jackson. He is cap- able of a tone that is low, tender, and sweet, and at the same time has the much to be desired faculty of enormous power, so that his singing is most effective." Another star of the company is the renowned basso, A-rthur Beamis. His remarkable trio work with the artists, Myron Ryals and George Snyder, who were members of the Glee Club in former years, was much lauded by all who heard him. The New York critic, Roy Harris, has said of him in the New York Times, "Mr, Beamis is one of the world's foremost bassos. In his recital here last night, he rose to his highest standard, and won all listeners to him. The personality of the artist, manifested in his singing, is one of thorough under- standing and confidence in his work." The concert tour, which starts May 30th will extend through all the northwestern cities, such as Portland, Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, and will also include San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles. The Company will then go through the Central States, the South, and the East, after which they may tour South America l-1... A. H. S. Grchcstra i... iw.. - The Orchestra was not able to take a week's trip this year as they did in 1917, but they have gone to several of the smaller towns close by and have played for several different occasions in Albany. Their first appearance was in Tangent. The crowd was not as large as was expected, but a very appreciat- ive audience. The next concert was held in Jefferson. Tho arriving nearly an hour later than the concert was scheduled, it was appreciated that much more. Mr. Fox was perhaps the most anxious of all to have the orchestra arrive, for he was kept busy telling the people they would "be there in about fif- teen minutes, now, he was sure." The orchestra fully realizes that if it had not been for the patient efforts of Mr. Fox, it might not have had as large a crowd as it did when it arrived. Jefferson was the last place in which the orchestra was able to have Virginia Rathbone with them. Virginia entered the High School late last year and soon joined the orchestra, greatly strengthening the violin section, and it was greatly to be regretted when she left Albany to enter Miss Watson's 7 School in California. Her solo work was also greatly appre- ciated and she received hearty applause from her listeners. The orchestra has helped out on several occasions here in Albany. It was asked to give a few numbers at the Teacher's Reception during the Oregon Teacher's Institute and also played at the opening of several of their afternoon sessions. It gave its services two different times in helping out the Red Cross-in Shedd, No. 10 Grange, and at the Star Grange. In all places the concerts proved very successful and helped a great deal in raising money for this organization. Albany High is very proud to have an orchestra that can help raise funds for the Red Cross, which is doing so much work in help- ing win the war. Brownsville was one of the most successful trips of those taken. The "jazz band" which the orchestra is also able to furnish assembled in front of the hall and played several pieces so that the hall was filled when the concert began. In all the concerts the orchestra was greatly enjoyed by its hearers and the audience showed their enthusiasm by de- manding encores from each of the soloists. Dale Propst gave his several readings in a creditable manner, interpreting and impersonating his characters true to the way in which his pieces portrayed them. Ronald Reid more than did himself justice with his piano solos, displaying unusual technique and his audiences fully appreciated his musical talent, showing it by their continuous applause. Little need be said of Lena Tobey's violin and whistling solos, as all those who have heard her know she has few competitors. Marcile Austin, with her vivacious manner, held her audience with intense interest thru every minute of her clever musical readings. Mr. Williams also added greater interest to the program with his guitar solos, rendering them with unusual ability-bringing music out of an instrument which few can play well. The trombone and cornet duet played by Mr. Moses and Mr. Fox called the immediate attention of every person in the audience. Their smoothness of tone displayed true art and they left an im- fression with the audience which will be remembered by all. We need not go into Mr. Moses past musical history, for he is well known in many states. Any who have heard his solos or orchestras which have been under his training will accept them as testimony of his ability. Albany High is only too glad to have been able to have had him as their musical leader, and regards his departure for North Dakota with a great deal of regret. The members composing the orchestra are: Lena Tobey, Inez Wood, Janet Dawson, Raymond Fisher and Mr. Williams, violins. Velma Anthony, Cello. Mr. Moses, Cornet. Harold Irvin, Flute. Dale Propst, Royal Archibald and Loren Howe, Clarinets. Morris Hayes, Mr. Fox and Orman Gildow, Trom- bone. Roy Harris, Drums. Ronald Reid and Florence Ryder, Pianists. ii.1g i A. H. S. Band Soon after the opening of school last fall the first meeting of the band was called by Director E. A. Moses. All the old members were "on deck," with the exception of those who had joined the forces of Uncle Sam or had graduated. Practice was then continued with no little success until the Christmas holidays. Just after the holidays Prof. Moses brought the band from Junior High School and united it with the Senior High Band. This brought the membership up to thirty, and the instrumentation was as follows: Cornets:-Solo, Sears, Harris, Williams, First? Kendal, Rankin, Barry, Eageng Second, Robnett, Conser. Clarnets :-Solo, Archibald, Howe, Propstg First, Brande- berry, Winn, Second, Blume. Piccolo, Irvin. Trombone :-First, Hudson, Fox, Hayes, Second, Gildow, McGee. Basses :-P. Lasselle and Hall. Altos :-First, E. Lasselleg Second, E. Robnett, Third, Sox Baritones:-Hecker and Monosmith. Tenor :-Hackleman. Drums :-Rhodes, and Blume. After the band was thus united, more difficult music, such as pieces written by Sousa, Siegel, King and Huff were taken up very successfully. Rigid practice brought the band into shape for the school activities of the year. It helped to put true pep and spirit into all of the school rallies and the foot- ball games. And after football season it's presence was greatly appreciated at most of the basketball games. On sev- , , l 1 1 A N 4 1 I eral occasions it furnished the music for student body pro- grams, its participation in the boy's proving a very great help. Later in the spring and during the early summer the band played for the Third Liberty Loan, while later they were en- gaged to play for the Home Guard Benefit. Before this reaches the press the Band will have played at the state G. A. R. convention and on Decoration Day. A trip was anticipated through Southern Oregon for the band but owing to the fact that expenses were not assured it was given up. The band has shown splendid spirit in this years Work. lf ever Albany High School should be proud of a band it should be proud of this one. The members have all shown especial care and attention to the instructions given by Professor Moses and have been veryl prompt in showing up at practice. When the day-light saving bill went into effect it was a little diflicult for some of the members to get there on time but they soon got over this slight difliculty. This year the boys did not go into the band for the purpose of getting a credit but more with a spirit of appreciation for their music. The diligent Work of Prof. Moses should not be disregard- ed when summing up the work of the band for this year. He has put his fullest energy into the Work and therefore the boys have given him their best efforts. Prof. Moses is akys look- ing for opportunities for "his boys" and is willing to support them in any Way. Prospects for a band next year are very promising according to a statement made by Prof. Moses, who says that not many of the members are graduating and that he has prepared several new members from the Junior High including three girls. According to this, Albany High School Will have as good a band next year as they have this year and it is not beyond expectation that it may be better. Team. Basketball Athleiirs Boy's Athletics At the beginning of school last fall the prospects for school athletics was rather gloomy. The war had taken about all the big men away-especially the football players. But those who did remain were full of pep and felt that since Albany had had a champion team last year, they did not want it to be with- out a team this year, so Mr. Overfield started earnestly to work to develop a "playing" team out of entirely new material. He succeeded in getting a team on the field, but, owing to its lack oi' experience, as well as size, the showing was rather poor, compared to what it usually has been. As regularly as the Saturdays came round, Albany was defeated, but, by the next Saturday we were back, ready to try again. Altho Albany was defeated, it was not the fault of Mr. Overfield, and we should not feel that our pride is hurt, for, when a school has a State Champion team one year and one that stands close to the foot the next, because so many boys have gone to the front, it should be a source of pride and not something to be ashamed of In bilketball we were a little more successful. Before football was over, the different classes were practicing for the class basketball games. A fairly good turnout was received and, with the old men back and some promising new ones, Al- bany's prospect was not bad. We won every game when- ever it was possible, but with such small men as we had, chanc- es were very slim against some of the large men put up by other schools. Altho we were defeated in several games, we won just as many, and left a good record for clean playing that any school should be proud to have. With the material now on hand, and others who will show up later, Albany stands a fair chance next year. When the subject of baseball was brought up, Albany was at a loss to know what to do. Most of the players were at war or down in their subjects, and there was scarcely anyone left to make a. team. After a great deal of discussion, it was decided that Albany would go ahead with class games, and if any promising material should develop later, a team might be :E o I1 -5 u o rn ua 4 o 33' 2 ra 4-7 4: hm Pa o III put upon the field. This is not the first time baseball has been abandoned, for the same thing happened last year. Since we probably will not have baseball, it was decided to hold class tennis tournaments, and also decided that letters should be awarded to the Winning class teams. This is a new feature in Albany High, but with the material on hand and what can be trained, if any interest is taken at all, we should have some lively tennis games. Albany has not stood out as conspicuously in athletics this year as in previous years, but the students should not be dis- appointed, for our school is not so large as some of the others, and could not stand the drain of the war as readily Altho athletics take an important place in school life, we would rather drop them entirely, than have any slackers in our school. After the War We feel certain that the old A. H. S. athletic spirit will spring up again double fold, and perhaps other Champion Teams go forth from Albany High. .... . .. Girl's Athletics Freshmen In Athletics the girls of the Freshman Class have come up to any class in school and have excelled them in track work, bein-g the Champion Class in the in-door track meet and win- ning a 'pup' which has been our mascot ever since. In basketball a good team was Worked up, which has a fair chance of being the Champion Team next year, altho not fortunate enough to Win from the more experienced upper classmen in the class games this year. At present the Freshmen Girls have every chance of being the winning team in baseball. Esther Engstrom is our star batter, and when she comes to bat itimeans a home run every time. All in all, the girls feel satisfied with their first year's work in athletics and have resolved to do even better next year. .1'L- . Gir1's Basketball Teams Sophomorcs Oh Sophomores are we, of the basketball team In athletics we're not slow. Though anxious to win, we always seem, Sometimes we're defeated you know. The one we chose to lead us thru To victory, was Esther Wilcox. Be sure whenever a game was won, We gave some very hard knocks. The girls that were chosen for forwards were Lola Housely and Murial Stover. p Whenever they got the ball, they were sure, To frequently put one over. The centers came next in the fateful line, E. Carson and little Jane Christy, I tell you that last one surely is fine, She's so very active and twisty. For guards the Captain and Evelyn R, A The Captain I need not name, And Evelyn's surname is too long by far, These six will make up the game. With the Juniors and Seniors we met with defeat, For they more experience had. When we played the Freshmen we certainly beat, Tho the score was not so bad.-J. I. M. TWV --0---1 Junior Girls Well, we did it. Everyone said that it was impossible, but we have proved to you that the day of miracles has not passed. People were heard to remark, "Well, if the Juniors are not worse scrappers than we thought I" It had been our ambition and purpose to defeat all the Girl's Basketball Teams, but we really rather doubted if We could do it. However, our fondest hopes and wildest expec- tations were realized for altho the score was only 7 to 6 in our favor it meant a great deal more than that to us. It meant that all our work was not in vain. In the beginning of the basketball season, only a few girls turned out as candidates for the Junior Team. Hard work and lots of it, was the course open to us, but we didn't shirk. Hi' is - -H --- me Due to longer practice and a heavier team, we won from the Sophomore and Freshmen, but there remained the "Invinci- bles," or Senior Team. Just before the last game, we were crippled by the loss of one of our regular guards. Never the less, we threw two of our subs into the gap and got them in as good condition as possible before the final game. Then came the last night. We could not hope for victory with our regular guard gone, but we resolved that the defeat should be no greater than we could help. Twice We came off the floor with the score against us, but the last time the whistle blew, we were determined to win, and Win we did. The Seniors put up a hard fight and surely did make us work, which will only make us think the more of our pennant and numerals, for we have the distinction of being the first girls basketball team to be presented with either numerals or pen- nant. . Seniors The Senior girls have been coming out for Gym. eiccep- tionally well this year, even tho rushed with their work. Practice for basketball began several weeks after the be- ginning of school. A large number of the Senior girls were quite enthusiastic about it and turned out every Tuesday and Thursday. Helen Livingood was chosen Captain of the Sen- ior Team and Della Stover, Ethel Bussard, Amna Hoiiich, Nathiel Donaca and Ruth Beal made up the rest of the team. The inter-class games aroused great spirit among the different classes. For the first time in the history of the class, '18 basketball team lost the Championship by one point, to the Juniors. CONGRATULATIONS, JUNIORS. Miss Metcalf gave her annual exhibition early in the spring. Most of the Senior girls participated. It was con- sidered one of the best exhibitions ever planned by the class and served to stimulate even a greater interest in gymnastic work. The baseball games between the different classes will be played shortly, and as the Senior girls seem more interested in baseball than in any other form of athletics, it is hoped they will rank first in class contests, if there should be such. -..-.:,.E. lg .-.qw V- - --,fir---H f -,V . With Nathiel Donaca, Ethel Bussard and Helen Livingood and others out for tennis, the Seniors have a good chance of securing the pennant which is to be given to the winners. Miss Metcalf is quite undecided whether or not a track meet will be held this spring. It is hoped that before this goes to press, the decision will be made in the affirmative, as this form of exercise is especially enjoyed by the girls and should be encouraged as a strong feature of girls athletics. gg2".?!.j5f.'fYLT'T'Q'-'Ei:ii'.?'fTf:hg:'?fi5'i1fZ?i4 5 "' It Vhfii' 5 V' :N - FW1 yi i ' X1 Miss Mctcalfs, Trip to Heaven Edna Metcalf all in white, Passed to heaven, one Sunday night.

Stunts -., JUST GIRLS JUST GIRLS Our Boys It is with no small amount of pride that we point to the crowd of boys who have left our school to join in the great ight for World Democracy. Tho they are now far away-some in France, some on the wide, blue ocean and some in the diff- erent forts, camps and training schools, they are ever with us in memory, and we still think of them igmembers of our school, "gone but not forgotten." ' The Seniors, especially, often express the wish that all the Class might graduate together, but, since this is not to be, we can only hope for the safe and speedy return of "our boys." n I 1 The Kid Has Gone to the Colors The kid has gone to the colors, And we don't know what to say. The kid we have loved and cuddled, Stepped out for the Flag today. We thought him a child-a baby With never a care at all. But his Country called him man-size, And the kid has heard the call. He stopped to watch the recruiting, Where, fired by fife and drum, He bowed his head to Old Glory, And thought it whispered, "Come" The kid, not being a slacker, Stepped forth with a patriotic joy, To add his name to the roster, And God, we're proud of our boy. 1-- His dad, when we told him, shuddered. His mother, God bless her, cried. Yet, blessed with a mother nature, She wept with mother pride. But he whose old shoulders straightened, Was grandad, for memory ran To days when he, too, as a youngster, Was changed by the flag to a "Man."-Exchange. L 1 r L X I if K , Y YYY,Y .. rx Boy's Military Company f' -ix lmll I, l qiml. I la- um P. This is a time of service. Some of us serve by doing Red Cross Work, buying Liberty Bonds and Thrift Stamps, or by "doing our bit" in the numerous other Ways open to every willing person. Many of our boys-and they are fortunate indeed-were able to offer their own individual service when the War broke out, to get in and fight hand to hand with the enemy. This is an avenue of service which appeals to all boys of all ages. It appeals to their spirit of daring and gallantry and arouses their sense of' adventure. But all of our boys were not able to serve in this way. Some Weretoo young, some physically unfit, and some believed that it would be of greater benefit to the Government if they should remain in school and finish their education. But, deep down in the heart of every true, red-blooded American boy lurks the Spirit of Patriotism, the desire to "be up and ready" when his country calls. Because of this, the A. H. S. boys have organized the Military Company. Vernon Henderson is Captain, and the members meet and drill at least once a week, practicing military tactics and get- ting in good, fit condition, so that when the call to arms comes again, Albany can respond in full force. We too often fail to recognize that heroes are not always those who fight the battles of War, and that they who remain at home cheerfully doin-g their duty as it seems best are also heroes in every sense of the Word. This is exactly what the A. H. S. Military Company is doing, and they deserve to be greatly congratulated for the good Work in which they are engaged. Alumni Notes As each succeeding class at commencement time leaves be- hind for ever the familiar and long remembered scenes of old A. H. S., its unity as a class is broken and its members sep- arated, each going to fill his or her niche in life. Some become famous, others do notg but each has his place to fill, and his task to perform. As we look back over the class rolls for the past ten years, We find our Alumni scattered to the four winds, par- ticularly is this true since the war is sending our boys to the training camps, not only in all parts of the United States, but even on foreign soil. What a wonderful reunion and "talk- fest" the Alumni will be able to have when the war is ended, and the boys have returned home. What rich experiences they will have had and what interesting stories they will be able to tell us. How we will honor them, toog and those, who do not return-for not all will-they shall not be forgotten, and our hearts shall be sad because of them. Let us be cour- ageous and when the war clouds hang heaviest, let us remem- ber that "conquer we must, for our cause it is just" and may we hope and pray that the final victory shall be soon. Then those who do not return shall be few and the home coming shall be a joyous one. The following is the list, as nearly com- plete as it was possible to make it, of the Albany High School graduates, who are now in the service: CLASS OF 1912. Robert Stewart, Electrical Engineer. Lieutenant Harold Archibald, Coast Artillery. Gordon Ryals, Navy. 1913. Seth Thomas French, Aviation. Howard Speer, Medical Corps, Navy. Porter Martin, Engineers. 1914. Orville Monteith, Ambulance Corps. 1 Lee Hulbert, Quartermaster Corps, Aviation. Harold Tregilgas, Medical Corps, Navy. Marshall Woodworth, Hospital Corps, Navy. Lieut. Miles McKey, Coast Artillery.

Clarence Wiles, Engineers Corps. There are perhaps some omissions in the list, but it was impossible to get any information at all concerning some of the boys, although an attempt was made to reach some relative or friend of each Alumnus. The class of '15 is in the lead with eleven men in the service, the class of '16 second, with nine, and the class of '14 a close third with eight. That you may realize in at measure at least, how widely scattered our Alumni have become, let us locate quickly T a few of them. Let us imagine that we are standing upon a high mountain peak wit ha pair of powerful field glasses be- fore our eyes and thus equipped let us imagine that we can see clearly to all four corners of our great United States. Then let us ask each loyal Alumnus wherever he or she may be, to hoist just below the Stars and Stripes, which are already floating on every loyal American home, the blue and .gold of Albany High. They are responding to our call and here and there from coast to coast, from Canada to the Gulf, those mod- est blue and gold banners are greeting us. Of course they are thickest around Albany-so thick that we shall not stop to count them-but let us look more closely at some of those who have left the old home town. Nearby, at Lebanon, we find Marion Stanford, '13, who is teaching in the High School there. Over at Silverton is Mrs. Vinnie R. Heinz fKeith VanWinkle, '11J. At Corvallis we find May Workinger, '09, who is Secretary to the Dean of Agriculture at O. A. C., and there are a number of A. H. S. pennants flying over Waldo Hall and other buildings on the campus for there are a goodly number of old graduates attending college there. There are some bits of blue and gold signaling to us from the University campus at Eugene-yes, there is Miriam Page, '14, always loyal to A. H. S. In Salem, at Willamette U. we find Millard Doughton, '15 and there at McMinnville are the Campbells, '15 and Bina Reeves, '14 and Virginia Tomlinson, '16. There is a scrap of gold and blue and a familiar face down near Oregon City-oh, yes, that is Vesta Lamb, '13. Let us look over Portland-there are a lot of pennants here, we can't take time to mention them all, but there is Park Stalnaker, '10 and Mrs. Stalnaker fHelen Hulbert, '12J, Dr. Earl Fortmiller, '10 and Mrs. Fortmiller fThelma Richards, '17D, and Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Curry, both of the class of '16. Over at the fortifica- tions on the coast we see a host of our Alumni friends. Who is that so carefully arranging his pompadour before a tiny pocket mirror? Now he is looking this way-and smiling- why it's Sergt. Shorty Myers, '16 of course. Away over in Eastern Oregon we find Clara Luther, '13, who is teaching school at Fossil. At Tacoma, Washington, is Mrs. Floyd Shortridge QBelle Thompson, '14J who is with her husband, who is located near there with the navy. In Carson City, Washington we find "Pete" Anderson, '12 and Mrs. Anderson, formerly Neva Hoflich, '13, Down in California, in the beau- tiful Sacramento Valley, there is a blue and -gold banner fioat- ing over a big 600 acre farm. Who can that be-why, it is Floyd South, '11 and he is foreman of this extensive farm, which is owned by his father. Off the coast of California, in San Francisco Bay, we can see Orville Smith, '15, who is a yeoman there. Let us look up to the North again. At Fruit- land, Idaho we find Claire Morgan, '12, now Mrs. Roy Kinsey, and at Poplar, Montana we see the Bain's-Laura and Hazel, of the class of '15, and Elsie, '10 and Lyle, '16. Just a little to the Southeast, in Wasco, South Dakota, is Kate Watrous, '12, now Mrs. A. A. Hinrichs. Over to the East in Minneapolis, Minnesota, we find Howard Speer, '13, who is taking a special navy course at the University there. To the South, at Kansas City, Missouri, we again get a glimpse of that familiar blue and gold. This time it is Harold Weider, who is with the Epperson Insurance Company there. Away down in the Gulf States in Texas-we find Seth Thomas French, '13 at Call Field, Wichita Falls, where he is in the aviation service. Across on the opposite side of the Gulf in Arcadia, Florida, as far from home as he could possibly be and still be in the United States,is First Lieutenant Merle Briggs, '15, who is an aviation instructor on Carlstrom Field. Lookin-g North again to Chicago, we find Dean Crowell, '12 at the Medical College there. Then to the East, in Ohio, we see at the Quanerian Art School at Columbus, Ena Hugheson, '17. To the Southeast, in Virginia, we recognize at Fort Monroe, Edmond Tracy, '16, and at Camp Lee at Pittsburg is Archer Leech, '14. Just to the Noirthat Washington, D. C. is Dena Fromm, '13, who is working in one of Uncle Sam's big, busy offices. There at Camp Merrit, New Jersey, just ready to sail, is Carlton Logan, '14, who is with the Engineers. Lookin-g inland again, we see Henry Fish, '15, who is now at Buffalo, New York. As we look out across the Atlantic we know that some where on that broad expanse of water are several of our Alumni friends, who would shout a greeting if they were near enough, and farther on in the dim distance others of our old friends are "somewhere in France, doing honor to their country, their Alma Mater, and their friends. And thus they are scattered-to the four winds, but we look back with pleasant memories to those days-best of all days-when we were friends together in A. H.

Abs -ff --fe -i--If . f f 'T The affair which marked the opening of the High School social functions of the year was the reception held in the High School Auditorium during the first month of school. This was given in honor of the Sophomores and new students, by the Juniors and Seniors. Hollowe'en decorations predomina- ted. At a late hour refreshments consisting of ice cream and cake were served. On Friday, November 2, the Freshmen held their first High School party in the Junior High Gymnasium. Corn stalks and pumpkins were artistically arranged to carry out the Hollowe'en scheme, and the room was dimly lighted in colored lights. A long program was the main feature of the evening, and this was carried out to perfection. Light re- freshments were served. Miss Esther Tellefson was hostess to the Glee Club at her home in Sunrise on Thursday, November 9. A large crowd appeared at the Tellefson home about six o'clock, each bringing a large basket of Heats." After the luncheon the evening was spent in games and music. The Home Economics Club spent a gay evening and en- joyed a covered dish luncheon on Wednesday, December 12, at the home of Miss Virginia Rathbone. The house was prettily decorated in accordance with the Christmas season. Christ- mas bells and red streamers of crepe paper connected the Walls and gave the room a cozy effect. The main feature of the evening was the Christmas tree, where the crowd gathered after the supper, and where each found a dainty present. On Monday, November 26, a reception given by the local teachers in honor of the visiting teachers attending institute, was held in the Junior High Gymnasium. A grand march was the main feature of the evening. This was carried out in a clever way by having the participants change partners frequently for the purpose of getting acquainted. Refresh- ments were served cafeteria style. Miss Janet Dawson was hostess to the Seniors February lst, at her home on Broadalbin Street. The evening was spent in games, music, and mind reading. This party was an exciting one for the Seniors and will be long remembered. The excitement was all due to the arrival of "additional guests D7 The Juniors entertained with a banquet on Wednesday, January 30. The crowd spent a jolly evening in games, the most exciting game being the mock Wedding, when Miss Esther Tellefson and Mr. Arthur Beamis were united in marriage by Rev. Morris Hays, D. D. Z. Z. The party adjourned about ten thirty. Honoring Mr. Young before leaving for his new home in Canada, where he was to become a "soldier of the soil," the faculty of Senior High School entertained with a banquet at the St. Francis Hotel, on Thursday, February 21. Mr. Boett- icher was toastmaster for the occasion and gave the farewell talk in appreciation of Mr. Young. He spoke of Mr. Young's interest in the school and the efforts he put forth toward solv- ing the various school problems. Mr. Young respondeda Other toasts and remarks were made by Mr. Hudson, Miss Burch, Miss Heist, Miss Patterson and Mr. O'Brien. A large basket of pink hyacinths formed the center piece for the table from which streamers of ribbon extended to each plate bearing clever rhymes about the characteristics of each individual guest. After the dinner the guests retired to the Hotel Parlor and indulged in conversation. Ziiterarg im's Bonfire Party "Well, if Jim Bradley gets a good grade in this Geomerty tomorrow and I get a well rounded zero, and perhaps one of those familiar lectures besides, so be it, for I cannot work out these propositions," exclaimed Vern Blowhard, as he shut his book with an unusual force. Jim and Vern were Juniors, and attended a country high school in the upper Santiam river valley. Between them there had been for some time a constant strife for obtaining the higher grades, one would get ahead for awhile, then with determination, zeal, and consecrated studying the other would become the superior. Vern had been receiving the better grades for some time, and Jim didn't bear the friendly relation toward him that he had formerly. Vern was a rather short boy in height, but in proportion very heavy in weight. He possessed curly dark brown hair, and soft velvety blue eyes that sparkled with brightness and wit. His face was fair and smooth, but spotted here and there with freckles and in warm weather it suffered with chronic shineness which together with a tinge of crimson resembled a Jonathan apple, and he complained a -great deal of thirst. In cool weather however he was more comfortable. He was tim- id usually, especially in the presence of girls. Jim was tall slender and of dark complexion. He was bright, studious and quite popular. "I gues I'll go out on the front porch and maybe my better spirits will revive" mused Vern. His home was located on a small hill overlooking the valley. The house was surrounded by several trees and shrubs of various kinds, and several flower beds, which filled the air with a sweet soothing frag- rance. It was a beautiful evening in May. The sun was setting in the West and the atmosphere seemed clear and pure. The wind whistled and sighed throu-gh the trees, making the new green leaf dance lightly and gracefully in its cool palace on the branch. Off in the distance, less than a mile, could be seen the school house. The old fashioned dug well still used for drawing water in a bucket, and located near the corner of the house in front seemed but a dark spot. The wagon road lead- ing to it was lined on one side, a short distance, with timber and underbrush. Coming nearer there were several farm houses in all directions. Vern was so absorbed in the beauty of the scene that he didn't notice the approach of a neighbor girl, Mary Peters. "Hello, Vern l" said Mary, as she neared the porch. "Why, he-hello," gasped Vern, crossing one leg over the other and wondering what to say next. "Have a seat!" he said at last and started after a chair. "Oh, never mind, I just came over to talk to you about the Bonfire party, I suppose you got an invitation." "Got an invitation, why no! Is there going to be a bon- fire party?" he anxiously asked, being quite surprised to think that he had not been included. "Yes, thers's to be a party given in the school yard by Jim Bradley, Tuesday evening. The school yard was chosen be- cause it is such a nice place to play games, which we will be likely to do after some potatoes and spare-ribs have been roasted. We will surely have a fine time, but I hope you will get an invitation too," she said softly. Their conversation drifted from the bonfire party to school work and other things of interest. Vern managed his part fairly well for him, in a girl's company. After Mary's departure, the more Vern thought about the party the worse he felt. ' -ff, "Perhaps Jim will invite me at school tomorrow or the next day," he thought as he rolled into bed. Two days passed but no invitation came, and there was but one day left. "I just cannot afford to let Jim get the best of me in this affair if I can help it," said Vern to himself. That night after retiring to bed he kicked and tumbled, plan- ned meditated and planned some more, until finally a scheme was worked out. The next morning found him making prep- arations to put his idea into effect. It was to be a trick in the form of a scare. Jim would probably go with several of the young people in that part of the community. Mary lived in another direction from J im's home and would not be likely to go with them decided Vern. This factudelighted him for she had been very kind to him, and he did not wish to frighten her. The day passed slowly, but at dusk Vern started out with a package under one arm and some small bicycle lamps under the other. He came to the timber that bordered the road and finding a good dark spot, sat down and waited. He had not long to wait, for at a distance the sound of voices and laughter echoed o'er the neighborhood. Jim's voice rang out at inter- vals very clearly. It was plain to be seen that Jim was the favorite boy present. The moon didn't rise that night, thus it was very dark. When the jolly crowd had approached the timber road, Vern hooted very loudly, in imitation of an owl. "Oh my!" cried the girls, "that's a terrible sounding owl." "An owl Won't hurt any one" consoled Jim, so they hurried on. Vern quietly ran a short distance farther and lighted his two bicycle lamps, which gave a dim red light. He held the lamps behind some thin underbrush and waited. Presently, here they came. "Oh! what's that ?" shouted the girls. "I don't know," said Jim uneasily, "but it won't hurt us I'm sure." This was a mystery and Jim began to feel a little nervous, but of course he tried to be brave, so they went on. Then Vern ran with the greatest rapidity possible, with- out getting over-heated, to accomplish his last and best act. At last he came to the well, and immediately unwrapped his package which contained a large sheet. Holes had been cut in the sheet for the face and some white horns made of stiif cardboard had been attached to the head gear above the holes cut for the eyes. He hastily put on the disguise and as he heard them coming descended the well rope. When the company were a short distance from the school yard he began to ascend and -groan softly, but steadily. Jim urged on his crowd but the nearer they came the louder was the groaning. The girls clung to each other, the boys tried to cheer them. As they were mounting the style of the school yard, suddenly there darted up this white figure with the horns from the well. The apparition had its intended effect. There was a scream and a hasty retreat homeward. Jim was as badly frightened as the rest. "Ho! there! come back!" yelled Vern, "why don't you have your party?" Recognizing the voice the young people came back. The majority of them were very angry, but Jim realizing his mistake used the good judgment of choosing the right course. He explained the matter to the crowd and apologized to Vern. The party proved to be a grand success. Jim and Vern went home as friends. That night Jim resolved "To stand by his friend to the utmost end, And fight a fair fight without selfish thought, For richer than gold, with happiness foretold, Is the true love of a friend, which cannot be bought." -Nina Pearl Propst.

I can even repeat his proposal. Oh! but it was wonderful and so ro- mantic. "You silly thing Gertrude!

" "And a marvelous dancer, don't forget that I" "And a football star, too-that's most essential!" "Well I should say! And he must have a dear little Mar- mon. Oh, girls! the rides we'1l have. And he's just got oceans of money. I've saved my crimson satin for the first evening, and if I don't make a hit for once, it won't be any fault of mine." "Girls, you know how I hate my old freckled complexion! I must tell you that I saved every cent for the last two weeks and purchased some genuine, absolutely guaranteed freckle eradicator. Then won't I be a beauty! Why, whats the mat- ter, Alice? Aren't you a bit enthusiastic about this wonder- ful boy that's coming to morrow? You'll just set around and not say a word and probably be an old maid all your life." Alice got up and left the group disgusted. "But that will give the rest of us a better chance," for Alice was the prettiest one of the bunch. Alice returned immediately and looking rather out of pa- tience at the rest who were still gabbling away, said, "Girls, I think you're the silliest bunch I ever saw-wasting your time gossipinpg about some one you have never seen. I'll bet you a five pound box of Centennials he'll be as homely as Archie Mc Loon and dead as a door nail! And what's more, I'll keep in obscurity for the first three days, for I'm sure if he saw me, all your hopes would be dashed!" "We're on," they cried in chorus,"Oh, won't that candy .taste good-yum yum !"- As the reader has probably gathered, a group of girls are discussing the arrival of Gerald Meredith, nephew of the weal- thy John Prescott, at the little summer resort of Mayport, par- ticularly at Mrs. Heurtl's cottage, Where a gay and frivolous party of girls were spending a few weeks. Ever since dame rumor had spread the news, such excited groups had -gathered, and planned to capture him, immediately upon his arrival. Next afternoon at train time, the entire group with the exception of Alice, was accidentally UD gathered upon the porch, each one dressed in the latest, and looking as sweet as hours of preparation could make her. Surely, with no stretch of the imagination could a more attractive group be pictured. At lengtn the critical moment came, and the hero of the hour, descended upon his eager prey. N udges were exchang- ed and expectant eyes gazed yearningly. The hero fulfilled the anticipation of the excited group in one respect--he was tall and athletic in appearance, but- fvanish all ye dreams of a handsome young charmerh , his hair was brilliant red and his countenance likewise, and as for freckles-bring out your eradicator, Dot. Clothes--well, they might have passed the censors of 1912, but 1918-never. He made his way up the steps of his aunt's house little dreaming of the glorious air castles he had crushed. ' He 'went to the oflice to get his mail and found to his delight ' UD, six invitations for dances and twice the number for various trips and excursions. He went to his room, unpacked and fanxious to be alone with his thoughtsj left the house by a rear exit. On the porch the girls sank back into their chairs and groan- ed-openly. After a long period, Thelma the optimist gath- ered courage and said-"Well anyhow, I'll bet he's a football hero, and besides he has so much money and he has a good pro- file. That night at the dance a bewildered and bashful young man claimed several dances to the immediate discomfiture of claimant and victim. More than one pair of dainty slippers were ruined, many toes were crushed and many more maidens were bitterly angry. The dance was anything but a success 4--and five more evenings of misery. Next morning an indignant clan met on the porch and dis- cussed the evening's events. Remarks such as these fioated out: "Isn't he the clumsiest old elephant you ever saw?" "He just ruined my new satin slippers." "And he doesn't even play football." "And as for looks." "Clothes-why anyone would think he came from the poorhouse instead of from one of the wealthiest families in Boston." "Lucky Alice, in.her obscu- rity." Every chance for rudeness was welcomed and they cer- tainly tried their utmost to make Gerald's life as miserable as possible. The greatly admired hero of yesterday was the much avoided and detested man of today. Alice, kept her promise and remained in obscurity for the set time. However upon her re-entrance into society, Gerald, glad of a chance to be treated at last as a human being, sought out her companionship and the two became very intimate. Many were the stinging remarks that she received, but she seemed not to mind them or at least they didn't bother her in the slightest and she kept up her intimacy with Gerald, the most hated person at the resort. Several days later at the last big dance of the season be- fore the parties returned to their various homes, the girls were astonished to see Alice, accompanied by the handsomest man they had ever seen, enter the hall. Many were the envious remarks made as the two -glided gracefully over the floor. Eager for an introduction, the girls again befriended Alice. Alice introduced to them her fiance. In some way he seemed familiar and they asked the fiance's name. And then came the startling reply-"Gerald Meredith!" Utterly astonished, the girls pestered Alice with numerous whos, whys and where- fores. To the astonishment of all she explained: "Well, girls, when I found out how crazy you were to meet the famous Gerald Meredith and how you prepared for his en- tertainment, I was greatly bewildered, for you see Jerry and I have been secretly engaged for some time and were just dying for a chance to be alone together. I saw how likely we were to get our wish with all of your scheming and planning. So I set my wits to working. The result was a letter to Jerry, entreating him to get himself up as ridiculously as possible and carry out the part of a perfect dunce. You know the re- sult. That hair was a fri-ght and hurt my eyes terribly, as it did everyone elses. The freckles came off in the morning plunge. The clothes were merely costume. We got what we wanted, seclusion, and meanwhile, put one over on you, which ought to be a lesson. His Marmon is in the village garage. His dancing is superb, and as for a football hero-he was the one that made that glorious touchdown in the Yale-Harvard game last year. And, as for looks-well girls, I guess you'll all agree that that five pound box of Centennials is yours-but you are welcome to the candy-and-I'll take Jerry for good and all.-Lois N ebergall. Bawl-outs It was noted by some of Ronald Reid's friends that he de- veloped a case of heart trouble, April 24. It became evident when he was obliged to leave the dance hall in search of fresh air. Did you find her, Ron? It seems as though our esteemed friend, the honorable James Sears, has an eye for vengeance.
