Albany High School has developed into one
of the best high schools in Oregon. The
students of our school now realize, more than
ever before, that this development is due to
the support of the citizens of Albany, es-
pecially to the many business firms.
Therefore, to show the commercial splendor
and the industrial value of our city and our
appreciation for this value, we display "In-

It is largely through the untiring efforts of the various
members of the faculty that Albany High is the success

well as a guide and instructor that we hereby express
our appreciation for their efforts by dedicating this book

To the Business Men of Albany:
It affords me pleasure as Senior reporter to recommend to you the outstanding
class (the class of twenty-eight) in the history of our school. Should you study the
history and note the qualifications of each individual, you could plainly see why I
am enthusiastic in recommending the various individuals here listed for your consid-
eration. Io further substantiate my sincere belief of recommendation I should ask
you to consider each individual record as follows:
First, let us consider those who have taken part in debate. Three of this year’s
high school debaters, namely, Arthur Potwin, Rex Hartley and Karl Gehlert, are
from the class of twenty-eight. For three years its interclass team has held second place.
A number of splendid actors and actresses are among its ranks. Among those
from this class who have taken part in productions are: Alice Fisher, Dollie McLen-
don, Mildred Collins, Evelyn Eastburn, Arthur Potwin, Karl Gehlert and Rex
I he class of twenty-eight can boast a number of excellent singers who have taken
important parts in operettas and other entertainments. The Seniors are especially
proud of Helen Cochran. 1 his class has musicians of great talent who constitute
a substantial share of the high school bands and orchestra.
The Seniors have made a remarkable athletic record. In football they contributed
the majority of the star players. Those on the team were: Don Hayne, Earl Stone,
Herman Kropp, Theron Beougher, Lee Rohrbough, Wallace Palmer and Nellis
Zimmerman. In basketball the team has been composed mainly of this class for two
T ivelveyears. Don Hayne, Herman Kropp, Earl Stone and Wallace Palmer were the
players. The Seniors on the tennis team were Lucile Murphy, Lee Rohrbough and
Arthur Potwin. In other sports, also, our Seniors have excelled.
The class of twenty-eight has a record of interclass activities of which to be proud.
For two years this class has won the cup by defeating the other classes in the majority
of interclass contests, including debate, girls’ volley ball, girls’ basketball, boys’ basket-
ball, baseball and tennis. It is likely that they will possess the cup for the third time.
The girls deserve a great deal of credit for their share of victories.
Nine out of ten of those who took the O. S. C. intelligence test, in which Albany
ranked first in the state, were Seniors.
Not only the records of these few mentioned, but also the accomplishments of
others who are equally capable, efficient and dependable along other lines, could be
favorably brought to your notice, if space permitted. As a whole, the class of twenty-
eight is a very talented class and worthy of your consideration.

Thf Class of Twenty-Eight.
Twenty-fourSenior Class Song
We started out in our Freshman year.
Next as Sophomores bright with cheer,
Then as Juniors full of pep and joy.
Then we Seniors reached our long-sought goal,
Overcoming every evil foe.
We’re the Seniors all so proud and bold.
Our debaters with our teams, you see
Winning every victory,
With their speeches and their self-command.
Football is the sport we love the best,
Basketball coming next,
Played bv athletes from our dear old class.
We come at last to Commencement day
With a happy heart, for we’re here to say
We are leaving now, our dear old A. H. S.
Red and white are our colors two
We are proud of them and our class flower, too.
With a dainty rose we will all be dressed so fine.
Our beloved teachers,
We wish you a fond farewell.
Our motto with words so few,
Means much to me, means much to you,
Oh, listen now to the class of twenty-eight.
THIS class entered Albany High School in February, 1925. They will finish
their courses in February, 1929, but they will not be graduated until June.
Though there are only twenty-one in the class, they have been represented in
all the high school activities, such as football, basketball, baseball, track and tennis
teams, as well as debate teams, Dramat Club and Glee Club. This active class of
twenty-nine will complete their high school work with honors.

CLASS OF '29
Our Present You Know
We, the Junior Class, have completed
three successful years, and at the close
of another, we hope to have made a
school record which will never he sur-
To a great extent, our success has
been the result of the adequate leader-
ship of our class officers and the counsel
of our class adviser. At present our class
roll consists of more than one hundred
members whose mutual helpfulness has
been the outstanding feature of our suc-
After more years of toil and study,
ac expect to he at the head of a long
ist of great statesmen and leaders of
We are indeed striving in every way
:o become men and women of whom
:he world may he justly proud. We
predict that many of us will he eminent
in law, music and many other profes-
;ions. May our names be known favor-
ably in every section of our country!
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
Hut make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t gave way to hating,
And vet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise.
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim,
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools.
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at vour beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss:
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the will which says to them: “Hold on!”
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can make your grades
When all about you are flunking,
Yours is the school and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a SENIOR, my son

A. H. S. BAND WINS
SECOND IN CONTEST
The Albany High School Band won
second place for the fifth consecutive time
this year, but in the minds of the audience
Albany won first place. It was a moral
victory for Albany, as we had the favor
of the entire audience.
We are proud of our band and are
looking forward to the next concert at
the Globe. Many of the best players will
graduate with the Class of ’28.
A. H. S. TENNIS TEAM
The Albany Tennis Team won its first
match of the 1928 season, by defeating
Eugene on the University of Oregon
courts, April 14. The score was 3 to 2.
Art Potwin, Floyd Sliger, Bob Pollack
and Karl Gehlert played for A. H. S.
A.H.S. DEBATE TEAM
Will Debate Astoria for West-
ern Oregon Championship
The Albany affirmative team, Arthur
Potwin and Karl Gehlert, won another
unanimous decision, April 6, by defeating
Milwaukie. This is the third consecu-
tive unanimous decision for the team.
Friday, April 20, this team will debate
Astoria for the championship of North-
western Oregon. If the team is success-
ful, the Albany negative, Rex Hartley
and Alison Senders, will then carry the
Albany High School is out for the state
championship this year.
IT WAS a fine spring morning in May. The birds were singing sweetly, and
the flowers were in full bloom. One would never think that only a few short
weeks ago the earth was covered with a blanket of snow, and the cold north wind
blew with a fierceness that would make the strongest seek the warmth of the fireside.
“Fine morning,” said old Jim Cox, the town’s most noted citizen.
“Fine, very fine indeed,” replied old Jake Rogers, his most worthy companion.
“Makes a fellow feel like a three-year-old.” Thus the old men discussed the news
of the day.
“Say,” asked old Jim, “have you heard the latest?”
“Can’t say that I have,” answered Jake. “What’s up now?”
“The Sophomores had the largest class of the year at Albany High School,” said
Jim. “And what’s more, their boys’ basketball team won second place in the inter-
“That doesn’t surprise me in the least,” remarked Jake. “That Sophomore class
is a lively bunch.”
Old Jim produced a newspaper clipping from his pocket and said, “Take a look
The paper read as follows:
SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS
President, Frank Niles; vice president, Wesley Nesbitt; secretary, Elwood Trapp;
treasurer, Raymond Neugart; representative to student council, Raymond Rich; class
adviser, Mr. R. A. Buchanan.
The Sophomore party was held Friday, January 13. A large group of Sopho-
mores attended, and everyone had an enjoyable evening. Games were the main
diversion of the class party. Refreshments were served at the close of the enter-
“I’m but a cog in life’s vast wheel,
That daily makes the same old trip;
Yet what a joy it is to feel
That, but for me, the wheel might slip.
’Tis something, after all, to jog
Along and be a first class cog.
Ever there is a task ahead, work to be done.
Just do your best, and praise or blame that follows counts
just the same.
I’ve always noticed great success is mixed with trouble
more or less.”

THE Albany High School debate team won the district championship on the
question: Resolved, That Oregon should adopt an integrated system of execu-
tive and administrative reorganization along the lines of plans recently adopted
in a number of other American states.
The Albany team unanimously defeated the Lebanon team. Since the winning
team of each debate had another point added, the decision was 8-0.
The Albany affirmative team, composed of Arthur Potwin and Karl Gehlert,
won a unanimous decision over the Salem negative, while the negative, composed of
Rex Hartley and Alison Senders, lost by a 2-1 decision to the Dallas affirmative.
The Salem affirmative won over the Dallas negative by a unanimous decision. 1 his
gave the championship to Albany with five points to Salem’s four and Dallas’ three
The question to be debated for the state championship deals with 6 per cent tax
limitation in Oregon.
The Albany High School debaters have excelled in the district, and the students
hope that the team will be able to obtain the state championship.
Kaliis Pollack Potwin
Stewart Zimmerman Sinnley
FOR the second consecutive year, the Freshmen were winners of the interclass
debate. The Central affirmative team, composed of Ruth Potwin, Robert Poliak
and Rosalie Fallis, and the Madison negative, Claire Stewart, Esther Sinley
and Ivan Zimmerman, triumphed over the Seniors to win their numerals.
In the first rounds of debate, both Freshman and Senior teams won. The next
day, the Freshman negative won 3 to 0 from the Senior affirmative, while the Fresh-
man affirmative lost to the Senior negative 2 to 1. The Freshmen consequently won
the championship 4 to 2.
This year the class debates were held prior to the high school debates, thus secur-
ing the high school team from the interclass debaters. The same question which was
used for high school debate was used for class debate. The question was: Resolved,
1 hat Oregon should adopt the cabinet system form of government.
Those who took part in the play were: Grumpy, the old criminal lawyer, Bob
Stevens; Virginia, his granddaughter, Margaret Stevens; Ernest Heron, Jack Cathey;
Mr. Jarvis, the villain, Jack Rhodes; Ruddock, Grumpy’s valet, Platt Davis; Mr.

Fifty-eightUlusicTHE combined Albany High School Hand, consisting of the Boys’ Band and the
Girls’ Band, has been very prominent in high school activities this year. It has
played for rallies and athletic games, and it has generously given its time to
school and civic enterprises. The excellent quality of work being done by the band
is recognized by everyone who has heard it.
Last year this band ranked second in the state contest, losing first place only by
a sixth of a point.
One of the most successful concerts ever heard was given Friday, December 2.
The success of the band is due to its ever-patient director, Mr. Nicholls, who has
been the student of some of the finest musicians of the world.
Boys’ and Girls’ Bands
BESIDES the large combined band of boys and girls, there are separate bands,
the Boys Band and the Girls Band. I he Boys’ Band has been very active this
year. It has played for the Spring and Fall openings of the city, for the County
Fair, for the Lebanon Strawberry Fair, and many such occasions.
The Girls’ Band has also won distinction this year. Through the Chamber of
Commerce, it represented Albany at the State Fair and also at the Rose Festival in
Portland, where the unusual feature of a Girls’ Band attracted much attention.
Both of these bands are planning to exchange concerts with the musical organi-
zations of the high schools of both Eugene and Corvallis.
SixtyHigh School Orchestra
THE Albany High School Orchestra is another musical organization which
deserves recognition for the good music that it sponsors. The orchestra has
been a great help to all talent not suitable for band work.
The orchestra has been unfailing in its support of various school functions.

the second meeting the officers elected were: President, Maxine Jenks; vice
president, Catherine Coates; secretary and treasurer, Susan Stellmacher; and business
manager, Helen Cochran.
This club has been highly successful in its work of promoting good music. It
has participated in several excellent assembly programs that the student body and all
visitors have enjoyed.
The girls’ sextette, which is composed of Helen Cochran, Margaret Pfieffer,
Eleanor Jenks, Mildred Oxley, Maxine Jenks and Mildred Emmett, has won dis-
tinction in the minds of the students.
Sixty-t woBoys’ Glee Club
THE first meeting of the Boys’ Glee Club was held early in October. As a
result of this meeting the following officers were elected: President, Rex
Hartley; vice president, Wallace Cusick; secretary and treasurer, Cedric
This organization has produced many fine voices and has been one of the main
factors in developing the musical knowledge of the students. The club helped the
Girls’ Glee Club present the play, “The Ghost of Lollypop Bay”.
The Glee Club also sponsors a quartet which has, at different times, furnished
music that has won recognition from the Albany people. The quartet has sung
before the assembly, the Kiwanis Club and the Chamber of Commerce. The per-
sonnel of this quartet consists of: First tenor, Lee Rohrbough; second tenor, Lee
Erwin; baritone, Karl Gehlert; bass, Victor Bryant.Operetta
THE GHOST OF LOLLYPOP BAY”, a musical comedy, was presented by
the Girls’ and Boys’ Glee Clubs of Albany High School at the Rameseum
Theatre. It was one of the most successful operettas ever given by the school.
The talent used in this operetta was of very fine quality and has been commended
by all those who attended the operetta.
The cast was as follows:
Miss Jemina Steel...
Prof. Alvin Flint.,.
Marcus Adam Johnson
The success of this operetta was due to the able direction of Miss Chalmers, the
musical director of the Glee Clubs, with the assistance of Mrs. Childs, dramatic and
This is our assembly hall,
The place of study and talk.
Here we have our parties all,
We all come, ride, or walk.
Here is the tale; read it and weep:
All our parties must close at ten ;
For we must go home and have our sleep!
The ladies leave—and so do the men.

AS HAS been the custom for a number of years, the Senior and Junior girls gave
kthe Sophomore girls a tea on September 29 as a welcome to Albany High. The
auditorium was appropriately decorated for the affair with fall colors. After
the excellent program had been presented, dainty refreshments were served. At this
time the girls took advantage of an opportunity to become better acquainted with
their fellow classmates.
At the Sophomore Reception the new students were formally welcomed to the High
School by a speech by Rex Hartley, student body president. After the welcome a
short program was given and refreshments were served.
The Senior party was proclaimed a complete success this year, because nearly all
of the members of the class were present in a loyal and gay spirit. The assembly was
decorated appropriately with Oregon grape and autumn leaves, with the new red and
white pennant finding a conspicuous place on the assembly wall. The program and
refreshments were greatly appreciated by those attending the affair.
The Junior and Sophomore parties were both enjoyed immensely by the respective
members. Entertainment for both affairs consisted largely of musical numbers and
Among other social activities of special interest was the football banquet, which
was served in the high school dining room by the Domestic Science girls, under the
supervision of Mrs. Anderson. The members of the football squad and a number
of the faculty members were seated at cleverly decorated tables. Each person found
his seat by means of the artistic place cards which bore the names of the Albany High
School players, and also related the outcome of the games played during the season.

To the Class of ’28
IT IS MY conviction, broadly speaking, that the boy or girl who fails to get the
most out of school will fail to get the most out of life. Opportunities are numerous
and within the grasp of all who are willing to make an effort—pay the price.
The teacher is not only teacher, but friend and adviser, and he, or she, realizes that
his student will provide a disproportionate share of failures in the coming generation
of adults. Some will never get anywhere in their jobs; others will lead unhappy,
inadequate lives; some will succeed.
The stigma of failure should never be cast on an individual, and it is far from
the writer to hurl this weapon at you with the idea of forever branding you as such,
but rather to acquaint you with the fact that such a stigma exists and awaits those
who are indifferent, and who fail to put forth effort to fairly meet the situation.
In estimating the efficiency of the schools, where should emphasis be placed, on
scholarship or citizenship-capacity, or character, or both ?
In the life of an individual, even as in the life of a nation, the activities of today
are conducted in the light of their influence on the affairs of tomorrow. So it is
with education. It is well to think that the prime business of education is the develop-
ment of the individual to build the nation’s future.
If one were to ask the question, what is America’s greatest asset, having in mind
the following for comparison, wealth, man-power, industry, natural resources, states-
manship, and should a vote be taken, there would be many seemingly different but
correlated opinions. If these opinions were to be fused to a fundamental state, one
word, the mother of all, would be so conspicuous above others that it would shine
forth with the light of the sun as compared with the light of the other bodies of the
solar system—Education. Education creates wealth, assures man-power, develops
natural resources, stimulates industry, fashions and moulds statesmen. 1 he boys or
the girls who have an opportunity today to take what is theirs for the asking and
fail, have only self to blame.
Your way of looking at things does not depend upon the size of your town or city,
but upon the size of your brain.
How do you think?
No truer statement was ever penned than the one taken from the Holy Writ:
“As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
Substantiating this fact further, the poet has ably penned these fitting lines:
“If you think you will lose, you’re lost.
For out of the world you’ll find
Success begins with a fellow’s will.
It’s all in the state of mind.”
G. E. FlNNERTY, Superintendent.
GEORGE K. KLIETZ, president of a fif-
teen million dollar corporation and indi-
vidual owner of some fifty-one per cent of
the shares, honestly believed that he was us-
ing his money to the best advantage of the
people in general—and himself in particular.
The former was in doubt, but the latter an
Me had promoted and was completing one
of the greatest of hydraulic ventures in the
Northwest, by piping the virgin water of
Clear Lake down into the Willamette Valley
to supply the four towns of Eugene, Albany,
Corvallis and Salem.
George K. Klietz was well pleased with
himself and the world in general. Three
more miles of pipe, and he would connect with
the big head in Lebanon from which the water
would be distributed to the other cities. Me
banished the only doubt from his mind—that
the water in Clear Lake was slowly dropping;
but the chief engineer said that the rainfall
was heavy and it would undoubtedly fill up
in a week or so. He let his mind mull pleas-
antly over the fact that in two weeks he would
be in a position to begin collecting his 30 per
cent interest on twelve million dollars.
Mis pleasant meditations were disturbed
suddenly by the announcement that a Mr.
King would like to speak to him.
“Show him in,” was the curt order of the
Mr. King was shown in with almost total
lack of ceremony. He was a self-assured,
rather pleasant fellow of some thirty years,
wearing a short mustache, which lent a cyni-
cal appearance to his thin-lipped mouth and
“Yes. You wish to see me?”
“On a little matter of business about the
Clear Lake project. I am, I suppose, unknown
to you, but I will explain my position before
we come to business. I am Kelvin King, 51
per cent owner and president of the Lost Lake
Water Conservation Corporation, with full
legal rights to stop up, dam or use the waters
of said lake as I see fit as long as the im-
provement is equal to, or in excess of, one
thousand dollars a year.”
“Interesting, if true, but I hope you didn’t
come here to read the law, or explain your
own importance. After all, you know, young
man, that doesn't mean a thing to me, and
doesn’t change the prospects or developments
of this corporation in the least.” There was
a slight sardonic smile and an infinite look
of superiority on Klietz’ face.
“It will.” The degree of confidence in the
words shook Klietz’ debonair poise. “You in-
tend to have water running through your
pipes inside of two weeks, but to run water
through those pipes there must be water in
Clear Lake. Do you know where the Clear
Lake water actually comes from?”
“Yes. It comes from the same place that all
water does—rain. It has its own watershed.”
“No,” the smile broadened on King’s face,
“you are wrong; it has two watersheds. The
first takes in all the surrounding country for
perhaps six miles back, which gives it a frac-
tion over one-seventh of its entire volume.
The rest, Mr. Klietz, comes through a subter-
ranean channel and filter. Incidentally, this
water comes from the Lost Lake watershed of
some hundred and fifty square miles, and its
place of egress happens to be two holes in the
bottom of the lake.”
“Now, young man," the old man’s temper
was rising like an animated barometer, “since
you have been so kind as to explain all this,
would you mind telling me why?”
“No, I do not believe any explanation neces-
sary,” King hesitated, and a sly smile crept
across his lips. “And so now,” he continued,
“I’ll trouble you for exactly five hundred
thousand dollars for my fifty-one shares in
the Lost Lake Water Development Corpora-
tion. The two holes in the bottom of the lake
are dammed, but can be opened up with sev-
eral boxes of dynamite.
“You, or rather your men, have perhaps
noticed a fall in the lake and the drying up of
two of the springs; that is because there is no
inlet from Lost Lake. We have thirty-two
hundred second feet of water in that lake at
“Mr. Klietz, you know, or should know,
what a deficiency of six-sevenths of the entire
volume of a lake will do. In two weeks the
head of your pipe line will be half out of
water; in two months there won’t be a drop
of water going down your pipe-line.”
George K. Klietz seemed to double in size
and his color deepened to a fantastic red. He
exploded with a burst of profanity that would
have made a pirate turn green with envy.
“Why, you impertinent, insolent, little shrimp!
You can’t scare me this way. Go home and
pull the sheets over your head. This is black-
“Perhaps," came in icy tones, “but legally it
is business, sharp business, and you are the
one with the point next to you. Y’ou have the
alternative of a twelve million dollar loss or
kicking through with half a million dollars,
which will bring your ultimate profits down
to something like 25 per cent. At least thinkJl hir UJln cL
it over, Mr. Klietz. Good day.”
As King closed the door on the raving presi-
dent of the A. T. C. Corporation, he heard
something that sounded suspiciously like an
invitation for him to jump into the river.
Hardly had King left, when a telegram
came from Sisters, Oregon, reading thus:
President, A. T. C. Corp. May 4.
Third spring dry stop water level pipe stop
no explanation stop send experts stop springs
remain dry no water fifteenth stop.
(Signed) IIARTE, Chief Engineer.
To say that Klietz was furious was putting
it mildly; he was raving mad. That young
pup did have him where it hurt; he had
stopped those springs. It was either bank-
ruptcy or half a million dollar gift to that
young fool. He could fight him in the courts,
of course, but it was too late now'; he had to
have water on the fifteenth.
A week later it was a worn and worried
president that King met at the offices of the
A. T. C. Corporation.
“Well?” There was hurt vanity and
wounded pride in the word, but no rage.
Klietz realized that he was beaten, and by a
“I’ve come to see about selling my shares in
the Lost Lake Water Development Corpora-
tion. Either we’ll strike a bargain now, or
I’ll take my shares to a more compatible
“How much did you say you wanted?”
Klietz, like the old head that he was, was
feeling his opponent out.
“I said that I wanted five hundred thou-
sand dollars, but I’ve raised my prospective.
I hold a good thing, good enough to ruin you.
My new price, and my only price from this
time forward, is a good big round seven hun-
dred and fifty thousand dollars.”
“What?” Klietz stared aghast. “Three-
quarters of a million dollars for a ten thou-
sand dollar corporation? Why, you robber—!’’
The older man continued to rage in a lan-
guage that was made for speculation and not
At this juncture a suave, well-dressed clerk
made his entrance and laid a telegram on
Klietz abruptly ceased his mutterings
against what he was pleased to term robbery,
and meekly reached for the telegram.
“Sorry, sir, but if that is the way you feel
about it, I’ll take my proposition elsewhere.”
King arose to go, but Klietz stretched out
a hand and detained him.
“Just a minute, Mr. King. As soon as I
read this telegram I’ll talk business with you.”
“Mr. Klietz, you mistake. I do not play a
Jew game. I will not argue the rate. It is
either seven hundred and fifty thousand dol-
lars or nothing. Your mind is as much made
up as it ever will be. I will have your an-
swer now, or we will consider this deal a
thing of the past.”
“But, King,” Klietz protested, “even a cor-
poration of this size cannot be expected to
have three-quarters of a million dollars in
its possession at a moment’s notice.’
“I hardly expected that much.” There was
the steely quality in his voice that convinced
the president of the A. T. C. Corporation that
this young man meant business, and a sad
business it was, too. “But I do expect a certi-
fied check for fifty thousand dollars and
shares in this company to make up the balance,
to be sold at par to the corporation on de-
mand.” Again King turned to go. “But that
is too big an order for you to swallow. You
like the looks of the bankrupt laws better.”
“Have you a contract to that effect?”
“Yes.” King produced a sheaf of paper
from his coat pockets.
“You guarantee to bring water down to
“Certainly, and at my own expens e,”
Klietz signed the contract with a shaking
hand, but nevertheless a sigh of relief whistled
through his clenched teeth.
“And now, King, if you will be so kind as to
tell me how you intend to unplug those two
holes in Lost Lake, you will relieve me far-
“I think the telegram on your desk will ex-
“How? Why, so you know what’s in it?”
“I’ve never read it, if that's what you mean,
but if I were you, I would read it.”
Klietz opened the telegram and read:
President, A. T. C. Corp.
Springs running five hundred second feet
stop water above pipes stop full head water
“What?” Klietz turned, amazed, to King.
“You’ve had them blow that dam already?”
“No.” There was a hint of mirth in King's
voice. “I may be a sharp business man, but
I’m no liar. The bottom of Lost Lake is a
lava bed. When I stopped up the two main
holes, it merely held the water until a new
hole could be worn out. That new sink hole
is now' worn out, and nothing less than an
animated Paul Bunyon could hold water in
Lost Lake now. The whole bottom of the lake
is about as water-tight as a sieve.”
Klietz jumped to his feet. There wras rage
and pain on his face, but he held out his
hand. “I’d like to hit you, son, but as Kipling
once said, ‘You’re a better man than I am’,
Kelvin King, so shake.”
King laughed. —Chandler Hall, ’28.OrganizationsHartley R. Zimmerman M. Jenks Senders
THE entire Student Body began the work of student activities early in the
school year. The officers elected to serve the Student Body this year were:
Rex Hartley, president; Raymond Zimmerman, vice president; Maxine Jenks,
secretary; Alison Senders, treasurer.
The first social activity of the year was the annual Sophomore reception, which
was given as a welcome to the new students. This event always offers opportunity
for the students to become better acquainted. The annual Carnival was not only a
great success financially, but furnished a pleasing entertainment.
Delegates, representing the different organizations comprising the Student Body,
attended the eighth annual High School Conference, sponsored by the University of
Oregon, January 13 and 14. Another group of high school representatives attended
the fifth annual O. S. C. Exposition, which was given under the auspices of the
Oregon State College, February 17 and 18.
Through the representation of these two conferences, many interesting facts con-
nected with high school problems were learned and the students were offered an
opportunity to become better acquainted with college and university courses of study.
Through the loyal support and splendid cooperation of all the students, 1928
has been a most successful year.Hartley Worrell Cade Rich Senders Hudson
The Student Council
THE Student Council of the year 1927-1928 has endeavored to do its work in a
way which will be satisfactory to the faculty and to the student body. The
requests of classes and organizations have been complied with whenever pos-
sible. Dates for high school parties and entertainments have been set for the most
appropriate times, and plans to create more interest in athletics have been made.
Money has been loaned whenever necessary and advisable.
In order to become better acquainted with the ways in which other schools are
managed, the council appointed a committee to visit and correspond with other high
schools. It is believed that much benefit will be derived from this, because the better
methods employed by the other schools may be adopted for use in Albany High School.

THE Order of the “A” is an honorary organization composed of all the boys who
have obtained a letter in one of the following sports: hootball, basketball,
baseball or track.
The Order of the “A” met early this year and elected the following officers:
Donald Hayne, president; Ralph McClain, vice president; Earl Stone, secretary and

Lee Rohrbough, Lloyd Bates, Earl LaRowc, Earl Nelson, Armin Hauswirth, Robert
Buchanan, Warren Hamilton and Joe Gilbert.
Seventy-threeI he Boys’ Athletic Association
THE Bovs’ Athletic Association is an organization which represents all the boys
in Albany High School. It is functioned for the purpose of putting on clean
athletics. It is from this organization that part of the funds to carry on
athletics is derived.
The association took up its duties at the beginning of this school year of 1927-
1928 under the leadership of the following officers: Earl Stone, president; Donald
Hayne, vice president; Herman Kropp, secretary; Chandler Hall, treasurer.
Enough boys turned out for football to make an exceptionally good first team
and a second team which was nearly as good. In all of the other sports the boys
have taken active interest. It is the association’s desire to bring forth better teams
each year.The Girls’ Athletic Association
EARLY in the school year all the girls interested in athletics met to form an
association. A nominating committee was elected at this meeting, and plans
for the association were discussed.
The officers elected for this year were: Lucile Murphy, president; Johnnie Cade,
vice president; Beulah Berlincourt, secretary and treasurer. Besides the regular
officers, various committees were formed.
The meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at the Madison
Junior High School. At the first meeting a constitution was adopted by the members.
At a later meeting the Freshmen who were eligible for membership were initiated.
The point system is used in the association. A girl must have at least ten points
to become a member of the association. She may win these points by hiking, playing
on a class team and in many other ways. When a girl has won fifty or one hundred
points, her name is sent into the State Athletic Association and she receives an emblem.
The Girls’ League
THE Girls League has grown in size and has attained a prominent place in high
school affairs. Every girl in the high school belongs to the league and aids
in making it a highly successful organization.
The officers were chosen before the close of the last school year. The following
were elected: Ida Mae Redenius, president; Altha Green, vice president; Evelyn
Eastburn, secretary; Mildred Collins, treasurer; and Mrs. Neva Andersen, adviser,
A tea was given for the benefit of the new girls who will belong to the league.
This has been the custom for several years past, and in this case the effort was highly
Numerous candy sales have replenished the treasury, which is now overflowing.
The members are filled with enthusiasm, and the students say that the Girls’ League
is more successful than it has been in the past.
THE Commercial Club is an organization composed of all high school students
who have won an award in either typing or shorthand. The purpose of the
Commercial Club is to promote the interests of the Commercial Department.
Officers for this year are: Gladys Hoover, president; Frances Penny, vice president;
Lucile Murphy, secretary; Cedric Brandeberry, treasurer. V'hir UJincL'
THE aim of the Dramat Club is to sponsor all better things connected with
dramatics and literature. The Dramat Club is a merit society of which no
one may become a member unless he has a considerable amount of dramatic
ability. At each meeting which the club has held a program has been given by dif-
ferent members of the club. The plan increases interest in the meetings and helps
in developing the talent of the various members of the club.
The officers chosen for this year were: Alison Senders, president; Margaret
Stevens, vice president; Catherine Coates, secretary and treasurer; Evelyn Eastburn,
business manager. Mrs. Charles Childs was selected as the coach and Miss Grace
McDermott as adviser.
This year the Dramat Club members unanimously selected “Grumpy” as the
play they wished to present as their annual play. The club has given a short play,
“Repressed Desires”, in various parts of the county. The Dramat Club and the
Debate League have entered the declamatory contest with great zeal.
The Debate League
THE Debate League was organized in the fall of 1927. Although the Debate
League is a new organization, its importance is not small. Its purpose is to
promote interest in debate. Meetings are held every Tuesday, when short
practice debates are given. The class debate teams are selected from the members of
the league, while the varsity team is selected from the class debate teams.
The officers are: Arthur Potwin, president; William Southard, vice president;
Karl Gehlert, secretary; and Altha Green, treasurer. Miss McKnight was chosen
as the adviser and Mrs. Charles Childs as the debate coach. The charter members
are: Arthur Potwin, William Southard, Karl Gehlert, Altha Green, Rosalie Haynes,
Charles Yokum, Ernestine Riddle, Ruth Knotts, Mary Gassman, Jennie Bikman,
Dolly, McLendon, William Ingram, Merlyn Mesman, Lyle Bartcher, Rex Hartley

Seventy-nineThe Home Economics Club
THE Home Economics Club, which is a new organization, is composed of the
girls of the domestic science and arts classes, under the supervision of Mrs.
The object of the club is to provide a medium through which each girl may work
for the common welfare and pleasure. It is to strengthen her character and person-
ality, to make her feel responsible as a member of her family, and to give her a desire
to participate in promoting the welfare of society in general.
Originality and progress is the aim. The motto of the club is: “Live to accom-
plish something, not merely to exist.”
The members of the club have given several interesting social affairs apart from
the regular meetings. The tea in February and the entertainment of the mothers
on Mothers’ Day were the most outstanding as to success and pleasure.
The officers of the club are: Edith Pyle, president; Velma Arnold, vice presi-
dent; Dorothy Clifford, secretary; Margaret Pfieffer, treasurer; Mary Paulus,
reporter, and Mrs. Neva Andersen, adviser.
IX LETTER MEN turned out this season. These had received most of their
training from Coach Mudra and were well acquainted with his system. The out-
look for the season was very bright and outside of a little hard luck it proved
to be very successful. We held Salem to a tie, which made us feel mighty good.
Sixteen men made their letters this year. Nine will be back next year. These, with
several second team men, will make a good line-up for the ’28 season.
Senior. Captain and triple threat
man. The opposing teams soon
found what they were up against
and the warning went around to
watch out for that “slick fellow".
Junior. Mac’s ability may be
judged by those who have not seen
him play by the fact that the U. of
O. has sent out inquiries as to
when he will be available for col-
Senior. Monty played a good
game. He circled end and broke
up many good plays for his oppo-
nents. This is Monty’s first and
last year. His place will be hard
Sophomore. Although this was
his first year, Bates made a won-
derful showing. He stood his
ground and no plays came through
him. We have him for two years
W. Hauswirth, Tackle
Junior. Walt tackled with the
viciousness of a young charger. His
cool and steady game will be wel-
comed back next year.
Junior. One of our fighting
guards. A small but determined
man. He spoiled many a well
schemed play. Earl will be with
us another year.
B hough hr, Tackle
Senior. The quiet boy who got
his man with ease and sureness.
He stood his ground against all
comers and all odds. This was his
second and last year.
La Rowe, Guard
Junior. Earl was out for some
time with injuries. While in the
game he held his opponents and
smeared their plays. He will also
be one of next year’s line-up.
Senior. Earl played a clean and
hard game in his second and last
year on the squad. His absence
will be felt next year.
Rohr bo ugh, Half
Senior. This was Lee’s first and
last year on the team. He played
a good game and took others for
Junior. Bob played a good game.
He was in for many gains. He
will be back next year to help us
through a successful season.
Junior. Hamilton is another first
year man who played a good game.
He broke through the line and
smeared many a well meant play.
He will be with us next year.
A. Hauswirth, Guard
Sophomore. Another fighting
Soph was "Wop”. He took the
game to heart and stood his ground
like a stone wall. He will be with
us two more years.
Senior. Joe worked hard and
made a good showing. This is his
first and last year. He played a
cool and steady game.
Junior. Another veteran for next
year’s team. Palmer showed his
fighting spirit in his hard line
plunges. A man to be feared by
Senior. This is Nellis’ first year
on the team. His weight was felt
by his opponents in line bucks, and
in end runs his speed was a decid-
Eighty-threeBEGINNING OF SALEM GAME
In this first game of the season the Blue and Gold made a poor showing until
the last of the second half.
Lebanon outplayed them before this and made their score by kicking a field goal
in the third quarter.
In the last quarter Albany opened a beautiful aerial attack and, with but five
minutes to play, Palmer, receiving the ball from Hayne, made a touchdown.
The team played much better football than it did at the Lebanon game. The boys
scored two touchdowns in the second quarter. In the third quarter Albany made
another touchdown and, although they failed in the drop kick, they were given the
point on account of Amity being off-side. The last touchdown was made in the last
quarter of the game,
In this game, which was one of the most important of the season, Albany exhibited
some of the best football that had been seen in years. During the whole game Albany
did not incur one penalty.
Salem made a touchdown in the first quarter, but failed to kick a goal. The
score stood thus, while the two teams fought fiercely up and down the field. Albany
gained its points when Salem dropped back of the line for a kick. The kick failed
and the ball, which was recovered by Beougher, was over the goal.
In the last portion of the game, Salem opened a terrible offensive, which was very
hard to hold, since our boys were much lighter than Salem’s.
It has been some time since we have held an even score with Salem, and we are
mighty proud of our team.
The outlook of the game was rather glum when, in the second play of the game,
Cottage Grove ran 40 yards for a touchdown. Albany got themselves in hand after
this and outplayed the much heavier Cottage Grove team.
The first score came when Hayne received a punt on his 45-yard line and ran for
a touchdown. Kropp scored the second touchdown after Albany had carried the
ball to Cottage Grove’s 15-yard line.
The boys were playing a very fine brand of football.
All hopes of victory over Corvallis were put aside during the first plays of the
game. Albany’s machine-like precision seemed to have failed them utterly. However,
Albany put up a gallant fight and continued to do so until the end of the game.
Corvallis scored its first touchdown early in the second quarter. Both of the
others came in the gathering darkness and fog in the last quarter.
Albany threatened Corvallis many times. The most notable was when the ball
was lost on the Corvallis five-yard line, after a brilliant run by Hayne.
Hayne and McClain were the outstanding players of the game.
Albany evened up last year’s score when it defeated the Olympia eleven 14-7.
The Albany team played brilliantly. Hayne and McClain made several won-
The first score came when Hayne passed to McClain, who ran 20 yards for a
touchdown. Hayne converted the kick. The second touchdown came when Hayne,
behind splendid interference, ran 30 yards for a touchdown. Both these scores came
in the second quarter.
Olympia gained its score in the middle of the last quarter.
Altogether the Blue and Gold boys outplayed the much heavier Olympians and
showed one of the best games of football that they had played this year.
Albany’s off-schedule game with Bend ended disastrously for the Blue and Gold
players. The Albany team did not enter the game in its full strength, as Coach Mudra
was saving many first team men for The Dalles game. However, the boys showed
a good spirit and played well.
ALBANY—0 THE DALLES—19
The Albany team played a good game against the much heavier Dalles team in
a sea of muck and mud. On the dry side of the field the boys held their opponents,
but lost all they gained when they got to the center of the field. The boys showed
a wonderful spirit and played in a way that aroused the admiration of their opponents.
The Blue and Gold boys played the most brilliant game of the season, beating
Eugene 2-0. They constantly threatened the Eugene line, while the Eugene men
never got within Albany’s 35-yard line. The team was seriously crippled by the loss
of Havne. The score came in the first quarter, when Albany downed a Eugene
man back of his goal line for a safety.
All through the game the linemen held like a wall and there was not one player
but who made a wonderful showing. The boys played together with machine-like
ITT HEN Coach Mudra issued his call for basketball, about twenty-five men
turned out. The men worked hard, and after two weeks the number was
cut down to twelve. Since these men outside of the first team are nearly all
Juniors and Sophomores, a good team may be expected for next year. This year there
will be twelve lcttermcn. Of these, five arc Seniors.
The team played well and added much to laurels already won by A. H. S.

share of the baskets. He, also, has
two more years.
Lloyd Bates, Guard
Bates played a good game from
start to finish. He was full of
fight all the time and smeared
many an opponent’s shot. He is
another of the class of '30.

year on the squad. He fought
every minute that he was in the

CANDIDATES FOR 1929
McClain (Captain-elect) Hlodgett
A. Hausvvirth Urandeberrv
ALTHOUGH baseball was replaced by track in 1927, it has been reinstated this
year, and from all appearances will make a better showing than ever before.
A. H. S. has always taken a great interest in baseball, and in the years when
it was a major sport much glory was added to the school by the team.
Ralph McClain was elected captain of this year’s team. Since much good material
is available, the team, under the able leadership of Coach Mudra, has a very pleasant
outlook on this year’s season.
High School Tennis (1927)
THE high school tennis team had a very successful season again this year.
Although Albany has always been handicapped because of poor courts, the team
is being recognized as one of the best in the state.
Although the team won only one out of three tournaments on its southern trip,
the other two were closely contested. Albany lost to Salem, Eugene and Dallas, but
defeated Monmouth and Corvallis by overwhelming scores. This was the first time
Corvallis had ever been defeated by Albany in tennis.
In 1928 the team will have nearly the same personnel and a championship team
is expected. The members of 1927 were: Arthur Potwin, George Mackie, Floyd
Sliger, Lee Rohrbough and Jack Rhodes.
Art Potwin and George Mackie played first doubles and Floyd Sliger and Lee
Rohrbough played second doubles.
The team appreciates the very able assistance of its coach, Miss Burris.

Boys’ Interclass Basketball
THE interclass basketball championship fell to the Junior class this year. The
boys played well and easily outmatched their opponents. The Juniors first
defeated the Seniors 20 to 16, and then they won from the Sophomores 15 to 12.
The winning team consisted of: Forwards, Floyd Sliger and Rex Gildow; guards,
Jack Berry, Earl LaRowe and Warren Hamilton; center, Bob Buchanan.
Ralph McClain acted as captain.
Ninrty-sixGirls’ Class Volley Ball
THE Seniors’ team entered the 1928 championship contest with but slight hope
of winning over the other contestants, but, being a decidedly plucky group, they
stayed with their task, took “lady luck” by the nose, and guided her in their
own direction. The team is composed of:
Mildred Rumbaugh (captain) Dora Roseborough
Henrietta Bear Beulah Berlincourt
Lucile Murphy Mae Chally (sub.)
Under the leadership of Miss Berg, the teams have all prospered and have had
good times practicing.

1 he boys interclass baseball championship was won this year, as in the two pre-
ceding years, by the class of ’28. Coach Mudra formed a new plan in which six
games were played, instead of the regular three.
The schedule was as follows:

Cedric, the Gentile, in the Land of Good English
AND it came to pass that in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred
and twenty-eight, that Cedric, the Gentile, did fall asleep upon the desk in
M iss Chase’s English room. And lo, he saw things most marvelous that caused
wonder within him. And he believed himself upon a golden ladder with beautiful
angels round about that did beckon to him to pursue them, and he did. And he
came into a strange land where many strange fowl did fly in the air, and many fear-
some hosts did roam the plains.
Lo, Cedric, the Gentile, waxed afraid. He drew nigh unto his guardian angel
and spoke unto him, saying: “From whence comest these strange fowl and surly beasts
that abide in this land ?”
And, behold, the angel did answer him in this manner: “These fearsome creatures,
Mistakes, do dwell here that they may prevent the Gentile from coming unto the
throne of King English. The way is difficult, but 1, Instructor, will wait upon your
And, as the Gentile was no longer afraid, they did set forth upon their journey
on the ninth day of the sixth month of the forementioned year.
I hus did they journey and nothing exciting did take place for a time. This
fact did Cedric regret. And lo, they were having a gay old time talking when they
came unto a huge lake. There did they stop, for the lake was large and long and
Cedric did despair, for there were ugly fishes waiting to nip Cedric’s toes, if he did
attempt to enter the waters. As I said, he despaired. But the angel bade him follow
and, waving his magic wand, did start toward the lake which immediately did part
its waters for their passing, and they did pass and journeyed farther upon their way.
And Cedric did inquire of the angel concerning this strange lake, and the angel
did inform him thusly. “These waters do represent one of the obstacles you must
surmount before approaching his highness. The lake is ‘The Slough of Despondency’
and the queer fish that do abide there are called ‘cheats.’ ' Now, Cedric, the Gentile,
was in noways satisfied with this reply but did attempt to gain answers to numerous
questions. He did wax eloquent and argued upon many points, but was not listened to.
And on the seventh day of their travel they did come to a lofty mountain which
did raise itself above the common ground. And the angel and Cedric did halt, for
they knew not how to cross the mountain. And while they did thus meditate, a petty
storm did rage in the offing, and they did receive an awful wetting; in fact, they
became drenched and the water did squish in the Gentile’s shoes, and he was sore
discomforted. And Cedric did speak pettishly, “What meanest this rainstorm? I can
catch pneumonia in the land from whence I came.’’
Instructor did answer, “The King does wish to dampen your spirits, for you have
found the way too easy.” But Cedric did only answer “achoo” and they proceeded
upon their way.
One hundred eightAnd lo, after much puffing and
blowing and mopping of brows did they
find themselves upon the other side of
the mountain, and they did see what
they could see. Now did the Gentile
become exultant; indeed he did fairly
dance because he had crossed the “Moun-
tain of Grammar,” which was indeed a
At any rate upon the ninth day of
their travel when the sun was low in
the heavens, they came upon a frightful
fiend, which did turn about and close
behind them tread. And Cedric did
become once more afraid and did shake
in his shoes. Instructor bade him be
still, but that he could not do so. And
lo, he did shake so hard that the earth
did open and swallow the fiend. Then
did the angel pat Cedric on the back,
because he had disposed of the fiend
which was called “Laziness.”
And then did they journey on and
they were not commanded to overcome
more obstacles or dispose of more fiends.
The fourth hour of the tenth day did
find them at the end of their journey,
and lo, Cedric beheld a strange sight;
in fact, he did become so excited that he
felt himself shaking all over. And he
was shaked by Miss Chase, and he
awoke and students did look upon him
and some did titter, for Cedric had been
Now was it not a shame that he
should awake at this inopportune time?

So collegiate his form, and so tinted her face,
There ne’er was a hall such a couple did grace;
While her mother did scold and her father did fume,
And the groom bit his fingers in petulant gloom,
And the bride maidens whispered, “Twere better, we fain,
To take for her husband, our young Donald Hayne.”
One nod of his head, and a word in her ear;
They reached the huge window; the auto stood near.
So down in the front seat the lady he dropped,
And right down beside her, he carefully plopped.
She is won! They are gone over rock, hill and plain.
“We’ll hit out for Idaho,” quoth young Mr. Hayne.
There was cranking ’mong Fords of the whole jolly clan,
Buicks, Hudsons, Pierce-Arrows, they drove and they ran,
There was racing and chasing down First Avenue.

THE KEY TO EDUCATION
Just «is science has unlocked new doors for the industries, vastly enlarging
their field and improving their products, so it has opened up new interests
in education, excited keener and more definite incentives to study, and es-
tablished more vital contacts with life.
THE MOTIVE POWER OF PROGRESS
In the higher education of today, the motive power of progress, like that in
the business and professional world, is the scientific spirit. This spirit, in
the college laboratory and classroom, is training the leaders of the industrial
and scientific world.
At “Oregon State” the usual broad curricula of the land-grant colleges, ani-
mated by the scientific spirit, include the following schools:
Agriculture Home Economics
Chemical Engineering Military Science
Forestry Vocational Education
The School of Basic Arts and Sciences, Industrial Journalism, Library Prac-
tice, Physical Education, and Music afford general and specialized training.

That is, don’t save more than you can comfortably afford
each payday. Too many people have tried saving and
then stopped because they tried to do too much.
It’s the small, steady savings that grow. The way to do it
is to decide how much you can save every so often, and
THEN STICK TO IT.
But, get started—that’s the big thing. As little as a dollar
opens a savings account at this bank. We pay 3% and
3i 2% on your money. Ask us about it. Also ask about
the particular savings plan that meets your own needs.

Albany High SchoolLADDIN and his wonderful lamp are completely
outclassed by this Queen—the modern housewife—
and her button, by which she commands vast re-
sources of electrical energy to do her royal bidding.
Like the wave of a magic wand is this simple ges-
ture that summons heat into the kitchen range, power into
the washer and cleaner, light into the lamps, music into the
radio; brings cooling breezes in summer, mellow warmth in
winter, even constant cold for the refrigerator!
Hut consider, if you please, the force beyond the electric switch
which makes this possible. The greatest minds of science are
constantly at work improving, perfecting, inventing new and
better ways of “doing it electrically”. A whole army, working
day and night over the country, man the central stations. Giant
machinery generates power, keeps electricity surging through
the wires that the Queen on her throne, the woman of the
home, may have service at the touch of a button.
It is interesting to note, too, that while the costs of food,
shelter and clothing have nearly doubled during the past
decade—electricity is actually lower than it was ten years ago!

Second, the rubberized cords of maximum strength and equal stretch

Third, the Goodrich Water Cure results in a uniform toughening of
