September fourth, the sun shone brightly, Shone alike on old and young, Shone upon the reverend Seniors, Shone upon the dreamy juniors, Shone upon the gay young Sophomores, Brightened up the teacher's eyes. Then a band like Kelly's Army Marched across the school house lawn, Marched into the halls of learning, Marched up to S. Find1ey's door. Spoke he to them words of wisdom, Spoke he to them words of warning, Telling them that they must study, Must not spend their time in loafing, Must not hang before the lockers, Must not irritate their teachers. Then they registered as Freshmen. Formed the class of nineteen-nineteen. Strong they were in mind and body, And they learned their lessons well. Learned to Write long themes in English Learned to factor Algebra. Went they to their class rooms quietly, Every morning, right on timeg Did not linger in the hallways, Did not hang upon the lockers, Did not gossip with the Seniors, Did not wrangle with the Juniors, For the words of J. S. Findley Sank into each Freshman's brain. And they had a loyal spirit, Took great pride in Albia High School, Took great pride in games and contests, Took great pride in being victors, Loved to show their mighty strength. Thus the spirit of the Freshmen, Thus the class of nineteen-nineteen, Entered into Albia High School, Thus they made themselves well-known And they soon will lose their verdure, Lose their jaunty care-free air, And they'll show by all their conquests, The class of nineteen is "right there."

H. S. This tribe of youths was called Freshmen by the other tribes and was not allowed to sit at the council fires of the league. At the first assemblage of all the tribes, Chieftain Willett instructed and advised all his people in regard to their conduct. He made it clear that if the Great Peace should continue no rivalry nor jealousy should exist among the tribes. The Fresh- men heeded the advice of the wise chief and profited much. In January, 1915, a small band of half breeds was allowed to join the League. These half breeds were looked down upon by the upper tribesmen but strove so hard to learn the manners and customs of the Four Nations that some of them were adopted by the Freshmen tribe. In the spring of '15, the Senior tribe withdrew from the League and went to con- quer new territories. In the same month the tribes people of the League were dispersed for three moons. When they returned a new chief of chiefs was choosen. The Freshmen tribe was now given the name of Sophomores, a name they honored. A new tribe from an inferior league was given the name of Freshmen. Chieftain Kies, the new chief, now permitted the Sophomores to choose from among them, a Sophomore chief and other tribal officers. Pennington, a Sophomore warrior, was chosen. This brave's sire was the chief of the Indians that claimed the right to the large tract of land purchased by Wm. Penn. Penn dealt so squarely with these Indians that the chief named his son Pennington. QThe word originally meant "Wind," in the Iroquois languagej Patterson was chosen Councilor to the Chief, Gray to collect and disburse the wampum of the tribe. Miss Lamey of the League's nobility was selected as advisor of the Sophomores in their various camp-fire councils and conquests. The Sophomores furnished many warriors for the main fighting force of the League. Five of them were rewarded with the emblem "A" for their brave deeds. The Sopho- more Pow-wow, which was held at the Gray tee-pee on the old Hiteman trail, was one that made the other warriors envy the Sophomores. Three days were set aside for the annual basket-ball contest between the tribes. In this the Sophomores were victorious, defeating all opposing teams by many points. This Sophomore tribe still sits around the camp fires of the A. H. S. League where it has gained a prominent place for itself. They are respected by all warriors and are .always ready to fight for the honors of A. H. S. Now when a young buck asks for a story he is told of some of the adventures and brave deeds of the Sophomores of '15 and ll6. These stories will probably be kept with the old legends of the League and perhaps in years to come these same legends that make ideals for the Freshmen of today, will be repeated into the ears of the youths of the Great A. H. S. League in the future generations.

Now the Albians were a strong and mighty people and were great in learning, and they had an institution of learning called the Albia High School. And in the year 1913 came to this High School, a band of people thirsting for knowledge. And the ruler of the school said, "Ye are welcome. Enter and be classi- fied as Freshmen." And they did as they were told and they were called Freshmen and did acquit themselves with honor. And lo, when twelve months had rolled by they found that the name Freshmen was taken from them and they were called Sophomores. Before the time of feasting, which is called Christmas, they did make themselves famous by giving A's to the stalwart athletes of the school. They did work hard and learn the tasks put before them and when the next term, which is called the First Semester, came they were called Juniors. Now it came to pass that the Juniors held a meeting and took unto themselves a class advisor. And then they said one to another, "Who shall be named Presi- dent ?" and with one accord they cried out, "Cessna! Cessna!" and it was as they said. And in the third month of the Semester, which is called November, the Juniors did give a play and made many shekels. They proclaimed that they would use these shekels to buy gifts for the sturdy foot-ball players, who trained themselves and did neither smoke nor stay out nights. And in this semester, which is called the first, the girls did play basketball with the Freshmen and the Sophomores and yea, even with the dignified Seniors. And when they had played, the Junior girls were victors and their classmates were proud. Then it came to pass that the leaders of the High School, which are called faculty, did inflict examinations on the Juniors and with one accord they battled with uncon- querable questions. And when the smoke and dust cleared away-lo, they stood as victors and entered on the next semester, which is called the Second. And it came to pass that the Juniors said to one another, "Come, let us gather to- gether and make merry." A nd they did according as they said and did meet at the home of Edmund lllorris. And the faculty did meet with them and they waxed jubilant until a late hour. And then said the juniors again: "Verily the Spring draweth near and its is fitting that we make ready, for it is written that the juniors must give a banquet to the Sen- iors who soon go from our midst. And again they did as they had said and preparations were made such as they had never seen and they made themselves ready to feast with the Seniors. Here endeth the Chronicles of the juniors.

Each teacher said, with a wise little nod, Fortune has favored us, thanks to the gods!" As an all-round Freshman bunch we nothing did lack. i Mighty athletes we furnished for football and track. O, the praise of the Sophomore year long will be sung! Unequaled stand most of the deeds that were done. S ay, but we did have a fine Sophomore class! Couldn't be beat from the Erst to the last. Likely you've heard of our orator's fame, And debaters who won an enviable name. S ome of our classmates, with spirits high, S uggested the time for a party was nigh.

Some one must be trying to make a Rip Van Winkle of me. It seems impossible that so many years have come and gone since the immortal class of 1902 made its bow to the world. I for one do not feel so old. I feel as gay and frolicsome as any young person who graduates this year. It is often said of old people that they remember the happenings of fifty years ago better than those of yesterday. Take my word for it, that is true of other people besides the aged. The days I spent in the Albia High School are most vivid recollections. In all honesty I must admit, however, that there are times when I do not feel so young. One time I want to tell you about. It was when I visited the new High School building in Albia. I walked through that commodious structure from cellar to garretg I saw all its conveniences and comforts, its scientific apparatus and its up-to-the- minute improvements and I reached up to stroke my long White beard, for surely the high school I attended was a half century behind this one. But did I sigh for the good old days? Not for the tiniest fraction of a minute. Those were good old days but these are better. We had a good time-too good, no doubt-and we learned a little, you have perhaps as good a time and learn three times as much. Shall we stop the procession? No, let the procession move forward. Sin- cerely do I hope that you of 1916 may look back in 1930 on even greater developments in the schools than I have seen. That is possible too. We are not anywhere near the end of the chapter. In fact no one knows how far away the ideal is. Meanwhile I want to be ready for all that is best in our schools, because the best is none too good. And so with everything else. There is nothing we need more than to go about our business of living in just that spirit-expecting and working for the best. Each day ought to be a better day than its yesterday. Everybody knows 'fThe Chambered N autilus" by Oliver Wendell Holmes. In it there is a couplet that illustrates what I want to say- "Let each new temple, nobler than the last, Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast." To know a little more today than I did yesterday, to find new sources of happiness and discover hidden depths in the old ones, to live each day a wider, richer life-that is my ideal. What is yours?

S. gn in the Glitruz On "May" the lst, 1916, the "Crowell,' circus came to the town of Albia, where the Albia High School is located. As it was a half holiday the pupils of the A. H. S. decided to go to the circus. About 1:00 o'clock they passed through town on their "Long" "Wachs,' to the circus grounds. As they passed through town they stopped at a "Booth" and bought some "Lamb,,' some "Brown" bread, some "Schneider's" pork and beans and some "Graham" crackers for lunch. They also stopped the "Apple- many' and bought some apples. The circus ground lay a mile west of town and they had to cross a long "Trusselll' to reach it. They all stopped and watched the water rushing underneath them and gathered the "Wild" flowers which grew along the "Greene" bank. Among them were Sweet "Williams," "Ferns," and "Myrtle." They soon had their arms full and they started on. As they passed through the "Wood" they could hear the birds "Carroll" sweetly among the trees and they could distinguish the notes of the 'fMartin" and the "Bob"-o-link above all the rest. ln a deeply wooded "Glenn" they ran across a bed of "VVild" straw-"BerrCyjies" and filled their pockets full. It had rained the day the before and the "Rhodes" through the "Wood" were still muddy and as they were of "Clay" there were many large "Clauds" in the road. One of the girls stepped on a "Sharp" stone and she said it felt like a hundred "Spears" were running into her foot and it gave her great "Payne." They were a "Jolley" bunch as they drew near the grounds and excitement seemed to prevail. They arrived just in time to buy their tickets and get in to see the "Major" performance. First a dainty creature as "White" and fair as a "Lily" came into the ring and did many daring feats on horseack. She then spoke to the man in the ring and said, "Now 'Lamey' down and the horse will step over me." After her performance Cwhich they all greatly ap- plaudedj several cages of "Wild" beasts were wheeled into the ring and the beasts were made to do many tricks such as counting "Dotts" or "Marks" and jumping over a "Brackett." Next came a chariot race in which the pupils of old A. H. S. became greately excited and gave vent to their excitement by saying Oh pf"Shaw"j and other such phrases. ' All the while an orchestra made up of "Combs" had been playing and now a "Young" "Porter" came out and sang a few songs, among them "Just a little 'Ray' of sunlight" and "lN'Iy fairy 'Fay.' " The act which caused the most amusement was when a clown came into the ring leading a donkey and said he would give anybody a "Tisue,' paper "Rose" who could stick on the donkey two minutes. Several of the school boys tried but without success. "Now," said the man, "if you are good and quiet he 'Nlafyj Brfajyf " And he sure did. They then left the big tent and came upon a smaller one in which they found a "Shoemaker,' who made shoes to order and sold them for one "Bone" After looking at all the side shows they ate their lunch and everybody declared they felt 'fFuller" than ever before and as it was getting dusk they started for home. Soon they came upon a "Stout', "lWiller'y who told them they were on the wrong road for home. At this the girls became frightened but the boys were very "Gallant" and cheered them up by saying, " 'VVilsoCoQn, be home." Soon they stumbled upon a bunch of "Keys Cliiesy' which one of the boys had lost on the way to the circus and they then knew they were on the "VVright" road for home. A little later a f'Gray,' mist seemed to envelope them and they knew they were approaching the "Trussell." Crossing the "Trussell" at night was a very dangerous thing and they were very careful but one of the girls more bold than the rest started quickly across it and they had to "VVarner" of the risk she was running. They then arrived home without any "Moore" accidents and although they were very tired they all concluded it was well "VVorth" their while to have gone. By NELLIE GRAY. X .

How do you feel after the glorious victory of last night?" Ruth Buchanan, from the open doorway, smilingly surveyed the happy faces of the team. "VVell, I for one feel like a jolly little spread would be in order about now," said Jane Andrews, in whose room the girls collected. The Girls' Basketball Team was at its best this year and the college of Forton al- ready had three games of the six to its favor. The star player on the team was Ruth Buchanan. Ruth was very popular with the girls and was always in the midst of their good times. Tonight Jane's room was filled with merry chatter and light-hearted laughter as the girls discussed the victory of the previous evening. No one was more happy over this victory than Georgia Trinton. Georgia played substitute in Ruth Buehanan's place but she was not popular with the girls and was usually absent from their merry-makings. As the girls were talking and eating Georgia stopped in to inquire about a book Jane had borrowed the day before. A few of the girls spoke to her in a cold tone but the majority ignored her entirely. She asked for the book and was told where it lay. On the table lay a small pin. It was gold and a small "F" was the only decoration on it. Only those students who had won the pins were entitled to them. "Oh, jane, is this your 'F' pin? I haven't seen any of them yet." "Yes," said jane. "I expect you'll get one next year if you keep on as well as you have begun, Georgia." Two weeks later the fourth game of the season was to be played, but in the mean- time disaster had crossed the path of Forton. Ruth Buchanan was ill with the scarlet fever and was moved to the infirmary so of course she could not play in the coming game. The Coach put Georgia in Ruth's place and the game was begun. It was the hardest game Georgia had ever played and the sarcastic remarks of the girls made it seem all the harder for her. But at the end of the game Forton was vic- torious again. Ruth did not recover immediately and the fifth game was also won with Georgia as the right forward. Georgia rejoiced at this new turn in affairs and decided to give a spread. The first girl she invited declined and likewise the second. From the third invited guest Georgia learned that she was suspected of taking Jane Andrews' "F" pin. The night of'the sixth and last game finally arrived and the Coach against her will put Ruth into the game. Ruth was badly in need of practice and the Coach thought Georgia could fill the place better but the girls all favored Ruth. j The game started and Smith, Forton's most dreaded rival, kept the score even throughout the entire first half. In the second half Ruth saw that she was not playing as well as Georgia played and begged that Georgia be put in her place. The score was ten to ten at the beginning of the second half. The ball flew over toward Georgia but her guard tossed it to the center, then to the opponent forward and from thence to the basket. The score was ten to twelve. The ball was tossed up and again came into Georgia's territory. She evened the score. The score was kept even almost throughout the second half. The timekeeper raised the pistol and Georgia snatched the ball from under the very hands of her opponent. But as she turned to throw, her foot slipped and she fell. She was up in a minute and with her left hand she whirled the ball over her shoulder and through the net. The game was won and Forton College was jubilant. The girls gathered around Ruth and sympathized with her for not getting to play in the game while only a few of them spoke to Georgia. She could scarcely keep back the tears. She had won the game for Forton and yet the girls blamed her for a theft she had not committed. The hot tears came to her eyes as she went bravely on towards the dormitory. On the steps someone put out a hand to stop her but she evaded it and kept on. "Bliss Georgia, Oh Miss Georgia, does this bit of jewelry belong to you or perhaps to someone you know ?" Georgia turned toward the maid and in her hand she saw a small gold pin, engraved with the letter UF." "Where did you get this pin, Mary ?" Georgia's voice was cold and hard as she took it from the maid's hand. "My sister, who is very, very fond of jewelry, found it underneath a table in Miss Jane's room. She hid it in her room and did not speak of it until this morning when she learned what trouble she had brought you, Miss." Mary's tone was pleading. By this time a large crowd of girls had gathered about Georgia and the maid, and several meaning glances were interchanged by the different ones in the group. "I say, Georgia," said one of the girls impulsively, "the whole crowd is coming over to my room tonight. You'll come with us, won't you? Don't make us feel any smaller than we do now by refusing. Do come, Georgia." But it was Ruth Buchanan who filled Georgia's cup of happiness to overflowing. She came dashing down the steps after the company and caught Georgia excitedly by the arm. "Oh, Georgia Trinton! Georgia Trinton! Do you know what is going to happen tomorrow at chapel? They're going to give them away to the Basketball girls, and both you and I are entitled to one. What? VVhy, the AF' pins, of course. just think, we will get to wear our college honor pin !" To Georgia it all seemed too wonderful to be true, but she and Ruth soon were in the midst of the group of girls who were strolling slowly over the campus singing their famous college song: "Here's to dear old Forton, Drink her down. Here's to dear old Forton, Drink her down. O, here's to Forton College, lt's the place to get your knowledge, Here's to dear old Forton, Drink her down, down, down." -e CHARLOTTE A. FRANCIS D.

This necessitated a discontinuance of interscholastic de- bating. The debate with Ottumwa ended in a two to one decision against Albia, who upheld the affirmative. The question was "Resolved, That a minimum wage for un- skilled labor should be established, constitutionality conceded." The best work accomplished by this year's debating season was the development of some surprisingly good debaters. Prominent among them were Homer Abegglen, Abe Teitel and VVilbur VVhite. We expect to hear much of them next year under the able leadership of the veteran, Robert Pennington. ALBERTA MARY GILTNPIR Berlamaturg Glnntezt Never before since the Albia High School became a member of the lowa Declamatory Association was so much interest taken in the Annual Home Declamatory Contest. For nearly two months, over twenty contestants worked hard and faithfully, under the direction of lliss Olive VVilliams, in preparation for this great annual event, and when the night came never before was such an array of strong declamatory talent pre- sented to an Albia audience. Perhaps one thing which helped to stimulate the interest was the throwing open of the three different classes. On account of the number of contestants, it was necessary to hold several preliminary contests, in order to select the twelve best to compete in the home contest. No one had a "walkaway" but every place was fiercely contested. gl. Brown with the oratorical selection "The NVandering jew," was given first in his class, Alverta Quarton, who gave "lX'Iandy's Organ," was awarded first place in the humorous classy Alberta Giltner, for her splendid rendition of "Helene Thamrcf' won first in the dramatic class and first over all. NVe were conhdent that in Alberta we had a sure winner in the state contest, so we journeyed forth to Knoxville, to the Sub- District Contest, confident of victory, but when the decision was given, Albia found herself in second place. It was hard to lose, but then we were not the judges. How- ever we were all proud of Alberta and realized that she had put forth her best efforts. like Gllazsairal Glluh The Classical Club is composed of members of the Virgil class. It was organized for the purpose of promoting interest in the classics, to study and learn about the myths of the ancients, to learn more of Roman customs and religious beliefs, and the effects of Roman literature upon the literature of the present time.

VERNIE GIBSON Left End Capt. Gibson never shirked his duty at left end. He was the pep instiller of the team, especially when everything was go- ing against us. One could hear "Gib" say: "Let's go, boys!" "Fight 'em!" He will be greatly missed next year. CAPTAIN-ELECT BRYAN VAN CLEVE Fullback "Van" never quits, he is always ready to hit the line. He has the "old fight" that makes a player valuable to his team. He was a consistent trainer. Best Wishes go with him and his team next year. J. BROWN N Fullback Redys smashing the line in the Knox- ville game showed that he would have helped the team win more games than it did if his knee had not gone bad. At that he showed the grit of a bulldog. Red's voice will be among the missing next year. HUGH GRAY Quarterback Little "Docy' showed what he could do in the Knoxville game by running back punts and using good headwork. He showed that a small man can make just as good a player as a large one providing the small man has a little nerve and is not afraid of work. MURL DOUGLASS Right Guard "Doug," though not a "grandstander," proved an awful annoyance to the visitors' backfield when they tried to get thru our line. He is an earnest worker and a mighty good guard. This was "Doug's,' first year, so F reshies take a lesson from this, come out in your first year and see what you are your last year. HERBERT MERRICK Left Guard "Perty" showed us that a head in the line was as essential as a head in the back- field. He followed the ball and never failed to be in the way when the opposing team came through any place in the line. His large build and experience made him valuable to the team. He is another man who will not be with us next year. JESSE RECTOR Left Half "Pig" was a second-year man. He played well in any position in which he was placed. He probably would have made right end had there been anybody for his place in the backfield. He will be with the team next year. BRYAN DEVEREAUX Left Tackle "Dev," our faithful tackle, was with us again this year. He always made a hole when he heard his signal called. His man was generally rolling on the ground after "Dev" had charged the line. On account of ineligibility he did not get to play in the last two games of the season. Here's hoping he is with us again. ARTHUR ADKISSON Left Tackle "Art" was late in coming out for foot- ball and did not get into trim until nearly the end of the season. Altho he had a good man's place to fill, he filled "Dev's" place very well. He is a hard worker and his year's experience with his weight gave him an advantage over the lighter candi- dates that tried for tackle. ELMER WILLIAMS Right End "Shorty" was another of our "small but mighty men." He showed the big Centerville end up on his home field by outrunning him for two touchdowns after receiving the ball from forward passes. He is remembered by all his opponents as fast on his feet and a sure tackler. He will be with the team for a few years. PAUL TRUSSELL Center "Truss" was our pivot man this year. Although he did not play every game on account of ineligibility, he did splendid work when he did play. Early in the sea- son he received a "charley horse" which gave him much trouble when "practicing" or "tackling the dummy." He could be depended upon to place the ball anywhere it was wanted at the right time. HARRY GRAY - Right Tackle "C. F." played a good hard game when he was compelled to and he sure did like to crab with the end. He was like a stone wall on defense and a snow plow on of- fense. As he is only a second-year man he should be a whirlwind next year. GLENN JONES Right Half "Crab" is another of the tardy mem- bers of the squad. He didn't show up until after the Knoxville game. I wonder why? It took him a little while to get in shape, but he soon played stellar football. He could carry the ball and run inter- ference as well as any man on the team. DIEDRICH GENEVA Quarterback A This season taught "Peck" to never try to chew gum and call signals at the same time and expect his teammates to under- stand him. He was a good open-field runner and could be depended upon at all times. "Peck" is only a Freshman. In the future we hope to hear of the good work he is doing. HAMILTON MABRY Yell Leader Altho "Ham" was unable to play on the gridiron, he led the rooters with mighty yells which many times saved the team from defeat. He was always ready to make the chapel walls resound when called upon to do so. GEORGE S. WITTERS Coach Coach Witters came to us from Grin- nell College with an endless number of excellent plays. He gave these to the team as fast as they could be absorbed. "Coach" by his hard work and loyalty was the cause of the success of the team. He showed that he understood the game. Everyone hopes that it will be possible to secure the Grinnell star as football coach next year. FLOYD M. HUNTER Trainer Coach Hunter, an East High star, was Coach Witters' very able lieutenant. He coached the line into a stone wall. He was always ready to help and give advice when it was needed. His clean, straight- forward manner in dealing with his men won him their loyal admiration and every athlete considered it a distinct honor to have been coached by Hunter. I a I lieuiew nf the Swann On September 7th the call of the gridiron was given. It was answered by a squad of about twenty-five youths aspiring for places on the team. They were divided into two squadsg Mr. Witters took the end and backfield men and trained them to handle the ball, and to catch punts and passes, while Mr. Hunter took the linemen and taught them how to block and how to plunge the opponents' line. All were shown how to body-block, guard, run interference, and a few more tactics for use on the other fellow. After about three weeks of strenuous work, the team journeyed via the "Burlington Route" to Knoxville. They arrived there at about 10: 30 and walked over the city so that they would have good appetites for dinner. After dinner they were hauled in autos about two miles Cmore or lessj into the country. Here the team met and defeated Knoxville H. S. for the first time in a num? ber of years. The score was 20 to 0. When they came home they were met by a large crowd which marched up the center of the street and around the square. The crowd dispersed after about twenty minutes of demonstrating their elation over the victory. On the next Monday the team began to prepare for our old enemy, Chariton. Next Friday morning beamed bright and everybody was happy. Chariton came down on No. 6 via C. B. 85 Q. At 3:00 p. m. the team met them on the City Park gridiron. After a slow and crabby game, out team came off the field victorious with a score of 6 to 0. In this game, I believe the team learned to never be asleep and to keep an eye on the ball, because Chariton nearly made a touchdown by a fake time-out play. Our next game was with Corydon. This was the game of all games that the whole school for numerous reasons wanted to win. The Corydon team was the first to come on the field, then the Albia team trotted on the field wearing the new red and blue sweaters that the Booster girls had presented them. The game started with Corydon receiving the ball from Brown's toe. From then on until the end of the game it was a hard fight. The "farmer" boys were too stout for Albia and carried home our team's scalp to the tune of 12 to 0. The next Friday everybody came to school at 8 o'clock so that they might go with the team to Centerville. The team went down on the l : 10 car and the rooters went on the special. Again our team met defeat from a faster and heavier team. The game was fast altho a good bit of time was lost in reading the rules on different plays. Albia came back in the second half and made two touchdowns from forward passes, but Centerville tightened up and let nothing more go over her goal. The score at the end was 32 to 18. The rooters did their part by instilling A'pep" into the team with words of encourage- ment and school yells. The team rested the next Saturday while the teachers were in Des Moines. On November 18th Moulton came here. Theirs was a lighter team than ours. How- ever, they made one touchdown on us. They really had more fight than our team. If we judge by their playing, our fellows were over-confident. They did play good football in the last quarter and ended the game with a score of 34 to 6 for Albia. The end of the season was only nine days off and the team had two of its hardest games to play. After the Moulton game the most of the team realized that they must work to make a showing with either team. The next Saturday the team played at Oskaloosa. Bluey! Bluey! Nuff send! It reminded the older members of the team of their game with Grinnell the year before. My, my, how that Shoemake did hit our line! Our boys played a fine game but all to no avail. Rector and Geneva carried the ball to the "Osky's" safety man once or twice on end runs but the ball was soon lost on downs. The game ended with a score of 46 to 0. The goose egg for us. "Beat Centerville" was the battle cry everywhere after that. On "Turkey Day" Centerville came from the south to repeat what they had done earlier in the season. Everybody was excited. All weather prophets promised that we would have good weather, but about noon the skies began to cloud, and by the time the game was called a rather heavy shower was in progress, and at the end of the first half it was coming down in torrents. The game was called off because the coaches hadn't trained their teams to play water polo and besides some of the boys couldn't swim. It was a hard-fought game on both sides, our team playing to redeem themselves and Centerville trying to repeat what they had done the previous year. As neither team had made any points the score was called a tie, O to O. As we review the season and note that we won 50 per cent of our games, we realize the team has played better football this season than for several seasons past. We sincerely hope that it may continue to improve and that Albia High School will turn out a winning team next year. HERBERT MERRICK.

' 'Coach" "BRIEF OF THE CAST" VERNIE GIBSON-Center ' "Gib" plays a star game at the pivot station. He leads in scoring and is good in team work. After this season he will never be seen on the H. S. circuit although he may be seen on some college circuit. Good luck to you, "Gib". JESSE RECTOR-Guard "Pig" plays two parts in this melodrama, sometimes he plays at guard and some- times at forward. In either place he does his part well. His basket shooting act is very good although not very spectacular. Last year's troupe showed their appreciation of his work by electing him Captain for this year. As he will be with the troupe another year we hope to see still better work. NOTE-JuSt as we are going to press we are told Capt. Rector has been reelected for next year. Good luck to you, "Pig",-EDITOR. BILL PABST-Guard "Bill" played his part so as to bring credit to himself. His splendid work at guard "saved the day" in several games. He will be greatly missed when the troupe starts on its tour next season. WM. MORRISEY-FOTXVZfd "Red" was never known to do much talking before or after a game. He let the other fellows do that. He was the fastest and surest forward in the troupe. He could nearly always be depended upon to make a basket when he had a half chance to do it. "Red" will be missed more than any other man next year. ELMER WILLIARIS-FOfW3fd Don't tell us a small man can't play basketball, if you are of the opinion that they can't just "blown yourself to a twenty-five cent ticket and watch "Shorty" Work the floor next year. He is only a second year man and if he improves as much next year as he has this year he will be a whirlwind. DIEDRICH GENEVA-Guard Here is another of our Freshmen who made good the first year out. "Peck" didn't get to play the whole season on account of ineligibility. But when he did play he did good work. The chances for his opponent making baskets were very slim, when he was on the job. He was very quick and did valuable work in carrying the ball to his own goal. We hope to see "Peck" play a full season next year. A Zkeuieur nf the Swann The season opened January 14 in the A. H. S. Gymnasium by a two-act drama en- titled "The Moravia-Albia Game." The final score was 39-27, Albia's favor. Vernie Gibson, the star of the game, led in the scoring for the home team while Jepson, of Moravia, made the high score for the visiting team. The game was characterized by personal fouls, which necessarily made it a rather rough game. But at that the boys showed that a real coach was training them. The next place the Albia troupe played was in Knoxville. On account of train connections the show was given as a matinee. As usual "Gibby" was the matinee idol. He did most of the scoring. Rector also did good work in "playing the floor," while Bill Pabst uirinkled his brow and received a couple of per- sonal fouls because he "accidentally" ran into his man. It was a close game ending 21-I9 Albia's favor. On the next Wednesday, January 26, we played with the Eddyville H. S. Here the boys met their first defeat. Eddyville had the advantage of knowing the stage fwhich was by the way no more than a box used to keep chickens in during the fallj. Anyway our boys showed much improvement over the last game and made Eddyville work for every point they registered. Then on the following Friday the troupe was billed to play an engagement at home with Corydon as the visitors. The Corydon boys played a fine game but were beaten by a score of 23-10. Morrisey seemed to be the star at basket shooting in this game. Who said, "Beat Centervillen? The team has asked me to inform next year's team to be sure to wear football regalia instead of the clothes generally worn for basketball, because they certainly will need them at Centerville. When the team returned from the south on February 4 they looked as if they needed to be admitted to a hospital. When the whistle blew for the end of the second half the score was against Albia. After a three day rest, the troupe met Eddyville at Albia, February 9. Eddyville came on the Hoor confident they were going to make another killing. Albia had a different opinion on the subject, however. They were equally determined to win. So it took forty minutes of good, hard playing to tell the tale. Albia was a little slower than her opponents but they did better teamwork and were more sure of making a basket when they got a chance. Eddyville came back strong in the second act, but to no avail. They were outplayed. The game ended with a score of 37-28 against Eddyville. Then on Friday, February ll, the troupe journeyed down to F airfield, accompanied by the team representing the fair sex of the A. H. S. Here the boys met their "Water- loo." Gibson didn't play the game he generally plays. Altho Rector did exceptionally good work at forward and Peck did star work in playing the floor, Fairfield was too much for the boys at at the end of the second act the score was 27-17 in favor of Fairfield. Saturday, February 19, the Knoxville team played here on their way home from a two-day trip. Gibson started the points rolling up by making a basket in the first minute of play. Then Captain Neiswanger made the only basket made against Albia in the first act. Knoxville seemed to be lost on the floor. They did not know where the ball was most of the time. Altho Gibson played part of the first half and all of the second half with a sprained ankle, he came out of the game with the brightest star, making the first ten points him- self. At the end of the game the score was 39 to 8 Albia's favor. The end of the season is growing near and only two more games to play. The next game was at Corydon February 25. Everybody worked hard before this game. Even Rector did a little extra work. All wanted to make the trip. I wonder why? Sh-h, that's a secret. If you find out don't tell anyone. Anyway all the boys wore their best "Sunday-go-to-meetin' " clothes and Bill Pabst added an extra white collar to his kit. It hath been rumored that he and Will M. had dates. That evening Albia met Corydon on the Y. M. C. A. floor and played "ring around a rosy" or gave' an imitation of a Hllflaypole dance." At least that was the way it felt to the boys when they were dodging around the iron pole in the center of the floor. Everybody played a fine game. The teamwork was of "A" quality. Corydon played better than they had a few weeks before, maybe it was on account of them being on their home floor. The score was against Albia at the end of the first act. But "Coach" Witters bunched his men in one corner where he could look them in the eye and spoke a few magic words to them, which the spectators were not allowd to hear. But the actions of the troupe the next act showed that "kind" words have their power. The second half ended with a score of 34-32 in Albia's favor. Last, but not least, comes the game with Centerville, our old enemy. VVhen they landed they had trumpets blowing. All were confident of taking home the "bacon." The Albia boys said nothing, but they were all equally sure that Center- ville would have to work for every point they made. The game started by the visitors making the first basket. Then Williams, for Albia, made a basket. At the end of the first half the score was 15-14 in favor of Albia. After ten minutes' rest the teams came on the Hoor once more. The score seesawed back and forth until Miss Gillard designated that the game was at an end by shooting off a .44 calibre cannon. The score, which was 31-30, was once more in Albia's favor. Williams and Gibson were the stars for Albia. Berry, the pivot man for the visitors, starred for them. It was the fastest game played on the home floor during the whole season. Now for the tournament. But alas! all our hopes vanish when Mr. F indley an- nounces in chapel that because of several reasons fand one in particular, namely, that the association is brokej, it will not be possible to send the team to Grinnell. But the old saying is, "Where there's a will there's a way," and, as usual, the Bus- iness Men's Association came to our rescue and played the part of the good Samaritan to the poor crippled pocketbook that lay by the wayside. Here, I would like to express the appreciation on the part of the H. S. athletes for what the business men of Albia have done for them. Now we'll go back to the tournament and see how the boys are doing. Well, welll We drew our old friend Centerville! This time tells the tale, for each team has de- feated the other once. Ah! Up goes the curtain! The ball is in play. Centerville has made a basket, then Morrisey made a basket. lt was a dandy game, altho Gibson was somewhat outplayed by the long, lanky Berry of Centerville, who played opposite him and made more points for Centerville than all the other players together. Wait till next year, maybe they'll not find another "dark horse" as good as Berry." The game ended the season and this also ends my story. Girlz' Bazkethall Gram OLIVE WRIGHT Olive was captain of the team and played left forward. Her long reach and ability to cover the ground combined with her knowledge of the game to make her a most aggressive player. We are counting on her for next year. EDITH GRANT Edith was the first "man at the ball" and generally got the tip-off. She always knew where the ball was and kept it going in the direction of our basket. In the Chariton game their forwards didn't even get to see the ball. Her laugh and pep will be missed next year. M ILDRED WH ITE Mildred was right forward. With her speedy shifts, she played loose around her teammate, Olive. She had an accurate eye for the basket and threw most of our fouls. We shall miss her next year. MARY ANGELL Illary, our midget guard, comes from Avery. She seemed to know from instinct just when and where her forward was nioving. Then she clung with a bulldog tenacity. She did her best work against the famous "Jerry" from Ottumwa. She has another year of service. RUTH WIGNALL I Avery furnished us another player, our side-center. Ruth was "Johnny-on-the spot" throughout the game. She kept her opponent guessing just what she was going to do next. Even when she was stepped on she came up smiling. We hope that she will not be a transient next year. ANNA GRAY On account of sickness, Anna was late in beginning the season. However, her infirmities of the flesh didn't affect her spirit and she made good. She was the guard who picked the high balls and broke up plays for the other folk. Her best games were Ottumwa and Corydon. She will be with us another year. Girlz' Eauakethall The year 1915-1916 marked the beginning of a new phase of girls' athletics. For the first time in the recent history of A. H. S. the "powers that be" gave their consent for the girls to play out-of-town basketball games. Accordingly a number of inter- scholastic games were scheduled. Intense interest was manifested by the girls and a large number resolved to try for the team. The first games of importance were the interclass series. The Seniors de- feated the Sophomore and Freshman teams, and the Juniors did likewise. The final game for the championship was played by the Senior' and Juniors and was won by the juniors with a score of twelve to fourteen. At the close of the season the losing teams celebrated in honor of the victors. The prospect for a winning school team was, at the beginning, not very encouraging. Lack of experience and self-confidence were not conducive to good teamwork. How- ever, with the rather unpromising material, Miss Stewart's coaching worked wonders. By the end of the season the girls' team had developed from a loosely organized group into a compact, well-trained team. Olive Wright made an efficient and popular captain. The squad, in turn, loyally supported her in practice and in "pep" 5 and it was not without real effort on their part that the following formed the team: Edith Grant, center 3 Ruth Wignall, side centerg Mildred White, right forward, Olive Wright, left forward, Anna Gray, right guard 5 Mary Angell, left guard, Mary Sharp, Nellie Burdan, Martha Eschbach and Ruth Tharp, substitutes. Commencement will take two from the team, but to fill the vacancies are those faithful folk whose names are Hunhonored and unsung" but who were always at prac- tice to work out on the first team. With the material that we have and the experience of this year we are hoping for a more successful season next year. THE SEASON january 21 Albia Ottumwa Albia February ll Fairfield Fairfield Albia February 25 Ottumwa Ottumwa Albia March 17, Albia Chariton Albia March 25 Albia Corydon Albia Zieuiew the llnier-flllwasa Basketball Series A few days after Thanksgiving Mr. Findley decided that the boys should play their inter-class games. The Seniors and Sophomores were picked to have the first battle. So after school on December 9, the boys assembled in the Gymnasium prepared to meet their fate. As Mr. Witters had the use of the referee's whistle, the boys were sure of a square deal. The special feature of the game was the roughness of Brown of the Senior team and Gray of the Sophomore, which was due to the new rules and the lack of practice. The Sophomores won 33 to 13. While the Seniors and Sophomores were resting, the Hrst half of the junior and Freshman game was played. But as in the other games the lack of knowledge of the new rules was the only special feature. The game ended in favor of the Freshmen, 24 to 17. The lower classmen had a playing average of l.000, while the upper classmen had .000. After a few days' rest the Seniors played the Freshmen. Seniors- had improved since the last game, altho Merrick only played about ten minutes. He seemed to forget that he was on a gymnasium floor and not on the gridiron. Fouts starred for the Freshmen while Morrisey made the most points for the Seniors. The final score showed the Seniors the winners, 27 to 12. As before, the Juniors and Sophomores played their first half while the Seniors and Freshmen were resting. Mtxch rivalry was shown between the two classes on the side- lines as well as on the floor. The girls had paid the small tax of a jitney imposed by llflr. Findley, so they proceeded to root for their respective classes. "Little" Nellie Gray led the yells for the Sophomores. With a little practice she may be able to land the yell-leading job for A. H. S. The boys in all four teams showed a great deal of improvement over the last games. The score of the Junior and Sophomore game was 37 to 13 in favor of Sophomores. On the sixteenth the boys were called together to finish the series. The Juniors for- feited to the Seniors, which gave the Seniors second place in the series. The Soph- omores proved themselves unbeatable by defeating the Freshmen 34 to 8. This game ended the series, which left the teams ranked in the following order: Sophomores ............................................ 1.000 Seniors ...... .... . 667 Freshmen ..... ..,. . 333 Juniors ...... .... . 000 Zilrark nf 1515 There did not seem to be much "pep" for track last spring. The fellows would rather sit around in the library "studying" than to get out and train. Those who came out did their best to make a good team under the leadership of "Coach" Ulich. But there was no competition and Without this any activity will die. We had Martin, Van Cleve, Merrick, Mabry and Whimpey from the year before, and lived in hope that some of the other fellows would "jar" loose and come out. Some did and did well. E. Williams developed into a fast little 100-yard man while Adkisson worked on the weights. Nlay the sixth, Mr. Ulich took a team composed of Martin, Van Cleve, Merrick and Mabry to the Drake Relays. Altho they didn't win any medals they learned a good deal from the older runners. The team then went to Eddyville where nearly all who entered either won a first or a second. Our next meet was the High School Conferenc Meet at Knoxville, where We were entered against some fast men. Van Cleve won the bronze medal in the 100- yard dash while Whimpey won the bronze medal in the mile while the relay teams won second in each of their events. We were invited to Fairfield, Iowa City and Simpson, but did not attend because of financial reasons. This year the outlook is much better. The boys began to train early and there seems to be some "pep." The boys hope to make a better showing at the Drake Relays. We have more men out, which will make all work harder. We lose only Martin from last year's team and we have a number of underclassmen taking an interest in the work. Taking everything into consideration, we believe that the track team will be heard from this spring. f fxnl Nj GX QQ xxffxfsy f WM MILQ flalenhar SEPTEMBER Hurrah! ! School opens.

Most everyone today has a very highly developed sense of what is right and proper in all manner of printing. It is one thing to appreciate superior quality and another to produce it. To produce it requires men of skill, industry and zeal and a good equipment. We have a corps of efficient craftsmen who are schooled in what is right and how to get the best results. We have a master printer who will give your work his personal attention. Our equipment is ofthe best. There is a glowing sense of satisfaction in dealing with people in whom you have ab- solute faith.
