Ulf I Were a School Teacher"
I'd like to be a school teacher and have for my class
Some of the teachers that I had back at old A. H. S.
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
"Thank God, we've got a boy in France!"-Exchange.
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

Miss S. AURELIA BURCH
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

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
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.
London, England, April 4, 1935.
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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. S.-I am anxious to learn how you are progressing with
your new book: "The Culture of Cabbage in Oregon."

As out upon the dewey evening air

Nature clothes old Earth again, with a dress of
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
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

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.
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.-. ........ "'Q:-g--g....--ISei:reliary A
George Lines .......,....,,,. ,gif .... g...Q,E,.Treas1irfer
Hubert' Fortmillera ..... g.1.Q,-.'...-ClaSs g Reporter
Later Roy Harrisfpwas electedfpresidenti to take the place
of Jay Willard, who went'-into thejservice, and Harold Hoflich,
secretary to take the place of Myron, Ryals, who left school at
the end of the first semester I' g 'V A A ' p b
We immediately., took the lead in Athletic activities. Six
of the Football men were 'Sophomores this yearj Four of the
seven basketball men who received letters this year were
Sophomores. y ' .ff V 7 ' '
In Class Athletics the Sophomore Basketball Team won
the Class Championship, and the prospects are very bright for
a Winning Baseball TeaJgn.,. ,The,Girls,Basketball Team also
showed up well in the girls seriessofrclass games.
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.
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.
Grubb, Irvin '
Class '2 1
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.
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. C.

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.
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
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
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.
A. H. S. Debating Team
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
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.
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.

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.-

The appearance of this world-famous Glee Club is eagerly
awaited by all Portland musicians and music lovers. 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
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
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

- 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
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,
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.
Trombone :-First, Hudson, Fox, Hayes, Second, Gildow,
Basses :-P. Lasselle and Hall.
Altos :-First, E. Lasselleg Second, E. Robnett, Third, Sox
Baritones:-Hecker and Monosmith.
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
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.
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
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
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.
.... . ..
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
All in all, the girls feel satisfied with their first year's
work in athletics and have resolved to do even better next
Gir1's Basketball Teams
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.
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.
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-
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
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.

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.

Miss Mctcalfs, Trip to Heaven
Edna Metcalf all in white,
Passed to heaven, one Sunday night.
At the portal she was greeted,
By St. Peter tall and sheeted,
Who in accents of delight,
Greeted her and calmed her fright.
"Full well we know y0u've earned you
In the mansions o fthe blest.
For I'm sure they make you sigh,
Those giggling girls of Junior High,
But back to earth your flight must set,
Albany High School needs you yet."-
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."
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.
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.

Boy's Military Company
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
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
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.
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.

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
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

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
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

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.
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-
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
"An owl Won't hurt any one" consoled Jim, so they hurried
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."

"You silly thing Gertrude! His aunt told me all about
him," put in Thelma, "he's fair and has the cutest little mus-
tache ......... "
"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-
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-
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.
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?
