THE Alliance High School has kept up to the usual standard this year and as this is the last number of The Spud for at least three months, we wish to mention the different successful features of the year. In Basket Ball we again won the championship of Western Nebraska and a large blue and white champion ship banner was presented to the High school, May 13, by Mr. Meyer, in behalf of the managing board of the league. The girls’ team was not defeated in any of the games this year, but there isn't any league and pennant for them, or one would have been added to our collection for each of the last three years. The Latin Club has been unusually successful. The regular number of meetings was held, and a play, “The Roman Wedding,” given. With the funds from this play, the club purchased two large pieces of frieze for the assembly room. The Debating Team was good this year, hut lost to Sidney 21. In Declamatory work we secured two firsts and one second in the district contest. At the state contest we won first honors in the humorous class. Last

full our base ball team won about half the games played, and now the athletes of the school are practicing for a track meet.
THE SENIOR CLASS
I N the Senior Class, which will soon be classed with the alum-A ni, there are two boys on the basket ball team and four girls on the girls’ team. Two of the class won second places in the Declamatory contest, and one member was on the first Debating team. By the departure of this class, some of the best pupils in High school leave. A seven-course banquet was given them by the Juniors, May 11, in the gymnasium. The room was decorated in a mass of pink and white, and pink and white carnations were on the table Music was furnished by the orchestra during the banquet. An especially good toast was given by Miss Wirt but she is too modest to allow it to appear in print. The class will give the play, “Hicks at College,” Friday, May 17. The baccalaureate sermon will be delivered at the opera house by Rev. A. L. Godfrey on May 19. The alumni banquet in honor of the new members will be Wednesday, May 22, and the commencement address, given by Gov. Aldrich, will'be on May 23.
WE wish to thank the subscribers of our paper for their pat-? ” ronage and financial support given this year, also the business men who have aided us by their advertisements.

THE SOPHOMORE CLASSPAGE
REVIEW OF BOYS' BASKET BALL
Basket Ball has again proven to be the most popular sport at High school this year. The basket ball season of 1911 ami 1912 was perhaps the best in the history of the school.
The first game of the season was played on Thanksgiving day with the Alumni. While the old timers played a fast, game, they were unable to stand the pace of the fresher ones. Score 53 to 20.
After this game practice started in earnest in preparation for the eastern tour. Despite the fact that our games in the eastern part of •the state did not all end in victories for us, we feel that the trip was a great success. It was on this trip that the fellows learned to adapt themselves to conditions and to put up the best that wits in them, even though the circumstances were the most unfavorable and even after traveling all day on a Missouri Pacific freight. Considering these facts we feel that the record made in the eastern part of the state is one to be proud of. The experience received on this trip aided materially in bringifng back to the A. H. S. the championship of western Nebraska. In the succeeding series of games for the championship of this part of the state we were undefeated. The athletic board showed its appreciation of the hard work of the team by voting them sweaters. Each player and the coach were presented with a beautiful blue coat sweater uj on which was a large white “A”. We hope the practice will be continued in the future. The following are the letter men: Nolan (oapt.), Schafer, Keegan, Graham, Darnell, Spacht and Rennau. These are t.he players to whom we are responsible for our 1911 and 1912 pennant. Nolan as forward and captain played a great game this season and proved a phencm at basket shooting. In all the games he was indispensible hut j erhaps will be remembered best as the hero of the Sidney game, at which time he acquired the title, “Old Ironsides’ . The team will feel the loss of Nolan nex year as he graduates this spring. Schafer, last year’s captain, better known as, “Bananas”, was on the floor more than any other of Alliance’s players this year, as he was out hut ten minutes during the entire season. During all this time he was helping to win fame fer our school by his excellent field work and accurate basket tossing. Darnell because of his jumping qualities has been duhbed the “Airship”. He easily outclassed his opponent® in every game, getting the hall at will and his goal shooting added many points to our scores. “Grape-nuts” Rennau although not in the game as much as Darnell delivered the go ds at all times. Keegan, the husky, and Graham, the broncho buster, were always there at guard. Their work on the defense was not equaled in any aggregation w:e met this year. They were always on the job and had hut few baskets thrown off them during the season. A faster, grittier pair of guards would be hard to find. Blondie Spacht wa3 always Jonnie-on-the-spot no matter where he was called upon to
serve, whether at guard or forward. Hi® heady work was always an asset to the team whenever he was in the game. He will be remembered most, however, for his stellar work at the Bluffs, where he went in the game in the last 5 minutes with the score against us and scored two baskets from the center of the field.

GIRLS' BASKET BALL
The girl’s basket ball team were easily victors over both Sidney and Scottsbluff, their only opponents of this season. Both game® were decidedly in favor of the local girls.
Alliance 27—12 Sidney Alliance 9 — 1 Scottsbluff
The girls that represented Alliance were: Hath Rice (rapt.), Izot-
ta Renswold, May Graham, Dellight Ufford, May Nation, and Mabel Worley.
The girl’s team will be somewhat at a loss for material next year as all but two of the players will graduate this year.
See the lovely little flowers
Blooming sweetly everywhere, Heeding not the passing hours. Thinking dot of work or care.
Life to them is just all sweetness.
And ni studies can alloy.
The days that pass with so much fleetness; All to them is perfect joy.
Let me be a modest flower.
Blooming ever m my place;
In some lovely shady bower.
Fair of form and sweet of face.

- - DEBATING - -
The Debating Class under the direction of Miss Gabus began work soon after the Christmas holidays with an enrollment of ten. The preliminary debate occurred January 25, in the High school auditorium at which time Michael Nolan, Dorothy Smith, and Ray Bigelow were chosen to represent the High school in all initerscholastic debates. The question debated on wras, “Resolved:—That the movement of organized labor for the closed shop should receive the support of public opinion.” The Sidney team maintaining the negative, debating here Feb. 22, was successful in carrying off the honors. Alliance has had a strong team this year and is proud of its work
The I atin club has had a very successful year during 1911—12. Four sessions were held by the club. The first one occurred at the High school in November. The second meeting was held at the home of Miss Alta Young Feb. 10, and a very enjoyable time was reported by all present. The play, “The Roman Wedding,” given by members of the Latin classes, constituted the third session and was held in the High school auditorium. The play wras one of th3 most Interesting features of the school year and Miss Wirt, the I aitin instructor, deserves much credit for her untiring efforts in making it such a marked success. The home of Miss Mabel Worley was the scene of the last I atin club meeting of the year. Nearly all of the I atin students were present and a very pleasant time was enjoyed.
|| DECLAMATORY ||
- - J
The local Declamatory Contest was held at he Phelan Opera House, March 12. About eleven contestants entered the work this year. Those awarded first places were: Fred Sweeney (’13), oratorical; Pauline Montgomery Cl4), dramatic; Iveane Mallery (’13), humorous.
The District Contest was also held in Alliance this year. The Alliance contestants were again among the successful ones as Leone Mallery and Pauline were given first prizes in humorous and dramatic classes and Fred Sweeney second in oratorical. But the District Contest did not mean the end of glory for Alliance High School, since at the State Contest held at Kearney, May 3, Miss I eone Mallery received the highest, honors in the humorous class, while Pauline Montgomery would have received first in dramatic except for the length of her reading, as she had been given first by two of the judges.
QlUtS Dt|2Cbc Spub
AS we look on the past in our hist’ry of time,
We must think of our class as in nineteen and nine. We were green, that is true, hut as good as could be, And more harmless creatures you never did see.
We painted the sidewalks—a thing very wrong,
Hut when told to erase it we went with a song.
And lighthearted we scrubbed with an undying vim Till the guilty thirteens looked quite faded and dim.
Then we drilled and we drilled, after school every night, For fear we again might err from the right.
But at last all our troubles as Freshies did end And we were the Soph’mores of nineteen and ten.
More dignity than we possessed, by a year.
For the myst’ries of book-lore were becoming quite clear. And now we are Juniors in nineteen and eleven,
And although we number but twenty and seven,
We're the bright shining lights of our city and school Without the exception that proves the rule.
What we’ll do in our Senior year no one can say,
That remains to be told at a much later day.
But this we may say, and quite truthfully, too,
We will meet with success in whatever we do.
And thus we have passed from the Freshies so green,
To the dignified Seniors of nineteen thirteen.
