“Engaged by Wednesday”
The Senior play which was given on l'riday, April 9, was a decided success, as has been everything that Class ’15 has ever attempted to do. In accordance with the custom of previous years, the class will leave a memorial in the High School. This year the class decided to get a bust of Washington to match that of Lincoln, both of which will be placed upon the stage in the assembly room.
ACT I. Aunt Abigail and Mrs. Watson decide that Arthur shall become engaged by Wednesday. Arthur and Lucile each persuade friends to take their places in the engagement idea. ACT II. Gypsies, stolen clothes, quarrels and bazaar.
ACT HI. More quarrels, recognition, reconciliations and elopement.

On Saturday evening, May 1, the Juniors gave the annual banquet to the Seniors in the High School gymnasium. The room had been transformed from the hare place of physical training to a beautiful summer house whose latticed walls were of the lavender and white. Flowering vines clambered over the walls and dainty butterflies sipped the dew from the blossoms. Larger and more gaudy butterflies hovered overhead.
The table decorations were also lavender and white. The flowers used were lilacs, violets, sweet williams and apple blossoms.
The guests assembled in the lower hall, which had been transformed into
a cozy reception room, and from there led by Miss Canfield, marched to the banquet room.
The menu was carried out in lavender and white. The banquet was a most sumptuous one and heartily en-joved bv all.

The serving was done by the following Sophomore girls: Gertrude Madden, Neva Howe, Matilda Frankie, Rose Carlson, Helen Rice, Della IIol-sten, Vera Albro, Florence Atz, and Mable Grassman.
The toast list also carried out the idea of a summer garden, and was worked out unusually well.

In the spring of nineteen hundred fourteen, for the first time in the his-tory ol the Alliance High School, the graduating class was given a day off, known as “Senior Day”. The class has the privilege of choosing when the day shall be and what they will do on that day.
Our class decided to spend Monday, May 10, picnicing at Rutland. We left Alliance on 41 at 4:20 in the morning, all "'ho planned to go being at the depot bright and early, but Lura, whose alarm forgot to “go off”. The trip up was a jolly one, to be sure, and perhaps no little noise attended us. Some for the first time in history, perhaps, saw tlie sun rise, and one worthy member thought it was the moon setting.
After about an hour-and-a-half’s ride, we hailed at Rutland, a small place about the size of Berea. It is situated about a mile from the lower end of the Big Horse Shoe Bend, about five miles from Crawford.
As we got off the car one gentleman, e idently a trifle peeved, remarked,
Well, I’m glad we’re ditching that bunch of hoodlums, anyway.” After getting off, we had to walk back about a mile and a quarter to a little canon thru which a small stream coursed. Here, at the middle of the Horse Shoe, we made our camp.
After waiting two hours for the section foreman to bring us our provisions, and then after an hour spent in preparation, we seated, or perhaps better, laid ourselves before a delicious breakfast of coffee, sandwiches, and fruit.
The place is an ideal one for such a picnic, and it is doubtful if it could be beaten anywhere. On one side of our camp, a cliff of soft stone rose sheer seventy-five feet into the air. Above this were other hills and cliffs and valleys, all covered with trees, principally pines. On the opposite side of the
camp were other hills and cliffs and valleys, also covered with trees and shrubbery. This is practically a description of the whole country for miles around, even including the stream, for within a radius of only three or four miles, there are no less than a half dozen streams, all having their sources in springs.
After breakfasting, we set about exploring the canons and surrounding hills, some going one direction, others, another. About eleven o’clock, attracted by whoops and shouts,"we all came together about a half mile up stream, only to find Miss Shcrdeman and some of the girls trying to hide their “pedal extremities” in the clear, cool water. Needless to say, when one of us boys found a stray stocking or shoe on the bank, it immediately got a bath. Displaying slight barbarism, the girls on getting to camp, Roused our coats in the creek.
After a good dinner of which broiled steak, baked potatoes and salad were the principals, everybody was quiet, especially Roy and Dorothy, both of whom fell (?) into the creek, while Roy was trying to make Dorothy get her feet in.
Later in the afternoon, some let Som-nus creep upon them, others explored further, and still others climbed cliffs until evening. Then it was that a hungry bunch gathered around the camp fire to roast weenies and eat supper. After we had supped and it began to grow dark we built a roaring fire, toasted marshmallows, and played games. The evening’s good time was interspersed with wit “right off the bat” from our own “Mark Twain”, alias Izzie.
In due season we journeyed back down the track, met the train, and at 10:45 were on our way towards Alliance. Needless to say our boarding the train meant no peaceful slumbersTHE SPUD

The Junior Class has decreased to about thirty members, which is about one-half as many as the number which entered high school three years apo as Freshmen, many having dropped out last year and this year.
Chief Events of 1914-15
During the inter-class basket ball games, the fore part of the year, the Junior girls won the championship of the high school, when they defeated the Sophomore and Senior girls’ teams.
Paul Campbell won place of alternate in the preliminary debate.
Hannah Cotant took part in the local and district declamatory contests, winning first in both contests in the humorous class, which entitled her to take part in the state declamatory contest. She did not take first in this, but succeeded in taking second.
Donald Spencer was elected secretary of the Junior Commercial Club.
The Junior Class play, entitled “Cupid at Vassar’’, given at the Opera House, November 27, was one of the b st high school plays ever put on in Alliance.
The annual Junior-Senior banquet, given May 1st, was a grand success in all respects. Nearly every one from both classes was present and all enjoyed a pleasant evening. The toasts given by the students and the faculty were very good, Marian Mote acting as
toastmistress. Mr. Anderson took the place of Everett O’Keefe, who was not present at the banquet. The menu was very delicious and was relished by all.
The second Junior program was given by the Junior girls during the month of April. It was called the “Humpty-Dumpty Circus,’’ and was somewhat better than the program given by the boys, but not quite so amusing.
“Say, Don, why do you put your coin under your pillow at night?”
“Oh, I always like to have a little money to fall back on.”
Irene—“Why do you like spring so well?”
Mildred C. — “Because 1 like
Tommy—“Funny, ain’t it, that everybody in our family is some kind of an animal?”
Grandfather—“Some kind of an animal, what do you mean?”
Tommy—“Why, mother’s a dear, you know, baby sister is mother’s little lamb, and I’m the kid and dad’s the goat.” —Exchange.
Tommy stole a cent one day,
And to jail was sent,
The jury said “Not guilty,”
So Tom was in-a-cent.

At the opening of school in September, 1014, the High School began with many more than the usual number of Freshmen. The class was soon organized: the colors, orange and black, were selected; and the officers chosen were: President, Frank Buechsenstein.
Vice President, Robert Ralls.
Secretary and Treasurer, Ralph Joder. Sponsor, Miss Gabus.
('lass Editor, Anson Thomas.
Athletic Representative, George Fenning.
Sergeant-at-Arms, Philip Grove.
The class is composed of the eighth grade class of last year; those having finished the country schools, and several from other states.
The Freshmen class of 1918 is the largest and best ever in the High School. All in the class are good, well behaved students who are not inclined to exhibit the usual “greenness” of Freshmen.
The following courses are taken by the Freshmen: Latin, Agriculture, Domestic Science, and Business.
The High School was surprised, but pleased, by the article in the papers stating that several of the present faculty, especially Miss Gabus, would remain in the Alliance High for another yea r.
The Freshmen program given April
28th was a complete success. It was a unique, well-acted playlet entitled, “Highways and Byways of High School Life.”
Our class is remarkable for its unusually large number of boys. No other class in High School can boast of the number of boys and girls being equal.
Prof. Lewis, in Physical Geography class, when describing a rhinoceros, finding the class not giving its full attention, said, “Now if you want to realize the true hideous nature of this animal you must keep your eyes fixed on me.”
Bob R.—“What is meant by ‘the stuff dreams are made of.”
Frank Bix.—“Paint, powder and false hair.”
Mr. Lewis—“This plant belongs to tbe begonia family.”
Student—“Oh, and they loaned it to the Botany class.”
Mr. Lewis (in Physical Geography class)—“What effect does the moon have on the tide?”
Ethel 0.—“None. It affects only the untied.”
Mr. A.—“What is your head for anyway?”
Norman—“To keep my necktie from slipping off.”24

As the Rchool year of 1914-15 draws to a close, the last issue of the “Spud” published under the direction of the present staff is placed in the hands of our readers.
We have put forth our best efforts during the year just passed to make our paper typical of the school it represents. It is as yet, practically a new periodical, but lias been excellently supported by the high school body, the faculty, and the townspeople.
As the staff is chosen from the entire high school, only a few of the members are graduating this year. We hope that next year, the student body will be just as loyal in aiding the publication of the “Spud” and make it even more successful than it has been this year.
A full measure of success cannot be achieved without enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the contributing factor of any finished product. The best clerks, the most resourceful managers are always filled with enthusiasm. When you are master of yourself, you are in better position to master a situation.
When a position calls for everlasting hard work, and you fail to work, you are not master of yourself, nor can you expect to master the situation. Get your blood filled with the virus oi enthusiasm. —Selected.
Work is often the father of pleasure. Pity the man overwhelmed with the weight of his own leisure.Happiness is a good that nature sells us.
The dreams of those who labor are the only ones that ever come true.
It’s good to have money, and the things that money can buy; but it’s good, too, to check up once in a whib and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.
The first degree of folly is to concede one’s self wise: the second to profess it; the third to dispise counsel.
First Year Shorthand Class at Work
The Commercial department was introduced into the high school in 1913 and has proved to he one of the most popular departments in the school. The curriculum is two years in length and offers work in English, Bookkeeping, Arithmetic, Writing, Spelling, Shorthand, and Typewriting.
There are now twelve typewriters in
the department and all of them are constantly in use. Students completing this work are given a diploma of graduation from the Commercial Department of the High School. Many students, however, who are not enrolled in the Commercial department are taking some subjects from this curriculum as electives, principally shorthand and typewriting.
Normal Training Class
Normal Training has proven to be one of the most helpful and satisfactory courses in the present day High School. Nebraska last year appropriated $125,000 for carrying on this training, and officials state that no appropriation of equal amount has done so much for the betterment of rural schools. The interest in, and the enthusiasm for, the work, so general thru-out the state, comes from the real test. This is shown by the result attained by Normal Training graduates of the High School, who have wonderfully improved the grade of work done in rural schools.
City superintendents agree that normal training has improved the discipline in the High School; given higher ideals to the schools; helped normal pupils into a better attitude toward their studies, as well as toward discipline; and brought the community into closer and more helpful relation to the schools.
The Alliance Normal Training class consists of eighteen members—Juniors and Seniors—under the direction of Miss Gabus. The course covers reviews and methods, work in Geography, Arithmetic, Reading, Grammar, Spelling, Penmanship, Drawing, Physiology and Mental Arithmetic, and a semester’s work in Pedagogy, Civics and American History. On completion of the course and passing teachers’ examinations in the reviews, students are granted a second grade county certificate, which after one year’s successful teaching entitles holder to a first grade county certificate.
The class is to be congratulated upon the excellent grades they have earned for their teachers’ certificates. To quote an instance of the quality of work done, the class of eighteen averaged 90 per cent in both Reading and Grammar in the teachers’ examinations taken the first semester—a record which probably is not surpassed by any other class in the state.28
The enrollment in Domestic Science was sixteen the first semester, and twenty-one the second. The course this semester has included the cooking of various simple dishes and a special course in Invalid Cookery. They have
made cakes and other delieacies for private families at different times. Four weeks this spring were devoted to serving, in which the girls were required to plan and prepare the dinner for eight people, $2 being the amount allowed for expenses.
Dc me stic Science ClassTHE SPUD
Manual Training Shop
The enrollment in Manual Training this year has been larger than ever before. The amount and elass of won; done is above normal for a high school. During the year over 400 people have visited this department. Many were convinced, after watching the boys, of the practical value of this work. Many were surprised at the quality of the work on exhibition during the Association. Over 900 useful articles were displayed. Several of the boys have equipped their room with library table, chair, foot stool, shoe shining taboret, waste paper basket, and picture frames.
In order to accommodate some Senior boys a special class of ten was organized to do Manual Training work after school certain nights, and on Saturday. The work done by these boys is above the average. It is a very com-
mon thing to see three dozen boys at work in the shop on Saturday, or after school. Some of the boys have done furniture repair work which has paid them well. Many special orders from different people have been filled, but the supply in no way has met the demand.
The students receive the articles that they make by paying actual cost of material used. This year the department will practically pay for itself. By selling articles to eager buyers, some of the boys could have made at least 500 per cent profit.
Some of the more ambitious pupils in the grades, after completing the required work, have made magazine stands, tables, piano benches, music cabinets, etc. The class in wood turning has also turned out some very useful articles.30
Debate and Declamatory
David Beach Nell Tash
The preliminary debates were held at the High School and were well attended. Seven students entered the preliminaries. Nell Tash, Charlotte Mollring and David Beach were chosen as the team.
Ogallala defeated Sidney at Ogallala
and Minatare forfeited to Alliance, so the district debate was held at Alliance. Nell Tash was chosen to represent this district at the state debates held May 14, 1915. The winner is champion of the Nebraska High School Debati g League.
The district declamatory contest was held at Alliance March 12, with eleven contestants on the list. The attendance was unusually good, reflecting the ability of the participants.
The results were as follows:
First—Cuba Must Be Free .............

First—The Gypsy Flower Girl .....
...........Laura Hawkins, Alliance
First—The Aspiring Dishwasher ...
...........Hannah Cotant, AllianceTHE SPUD
The Alumni banquet which was held in the High School gymnasium on Tuesday, May 4, 1915, was a decided success. More than sixty of the Alumni were present, that being the largest attendance for a number of years.
The decorations used for the .Junior-Senior banquet were used by the Alumni, the colors being lavender and white.
Music was furnished by the High School Orchestra during the serving, after which a program was rendered. Toasts were given by Mr. Pate, Lee Basye and Orville Davenport. Miss (trace Spacht gave an instrumental solo, and Lura Hawkins and Hannah Cotant each furnished a splendid reading. Two singers from the Imperial theater also furnished several selections. Karl Mallery acted as toastmaster in his usual able manner.
This is one function during the High School year that members of the Alumni association should attend in order
to keep in touch with fellow members of your class and other classes.

The Latin club organized for the purpose of promoting a social feeling in the High School and also to induce a feeling of interest among the students for the classics, has been thoroughly successful this year and the club has
enjoyed the entertainment furnished at the homes of Janet Grassman, Helen Schott, and Marian Grebe.
In fact the Latin club members have been so benefited by this organization that the faculty favor its existence for future years.

High School OrchestraTHE SPUD
This spring the High School orchestra closes one of the most successful seasons that it has ever experienced. The orchestra was larger this year than ever before due in part to the fact that Mr. Clements conducted a Junior orchestra during the summer. Not all of the twenty-three members endured to the end, but most of them were very faithful in attending the regular Monday night rehearsals.
Dorothy Smith, bass viol; Izetta Ue hr wold, violin, and Charles Spacht, clarinet will not be in school next year, as they graduate this spring, but it is hoped that as Alumni members they will continue to work for the best orchestra in western Nebraska. The High School is very grateful to Hattie Renswold, piano; Paul Thomas, violin; Carl Thomas, cello; William LaMon, trombone, and Charles LaMon, drums and traps, the Alumni members, for their loyalty and faithfulness in helping.
On the evening of December u, at the Phelan opera house occurred the
annual concert. A large and very appreciative audience attended. All were well pleased and many requested that the orchestra stage another concert. Besides playing at various school functions, etc., the orchestra furnished music for the Teachers’ Association in March. After hearing the orchestra play Dr. Nathaniel Butler of Chicago University said, “You have the best High School orchestra that I have ever heard. There is nothing ‘amateurish’ about it.” Surely the orchestra has been a good advertisement for the High School.
The Manual Training department made a walnut music cabinet in which is filed about $60.00 worth of the best orchestra music. The orchestra cleared over $80.00 at their concert which was used in purchasing a complete set of drums and traps. They had hoped to purchase a Victrola for the High School but did not clear enough to purchase the style of machine wanted. It is hoped that the orchestra will carry out this plan next year.

Boys’ Basket Ball TeamTHE SPUD
BOYS’ BASKET BALL
In the graduating class this year are five basket hall men, leaving two old men for next year. The men that are graduating this year have played together from the grades, and the school will lose some of the best players it has ever had. All have filled their positions with credit, and the school will miss them.
The oldest man that is graduating this year is Spacht. Old “Chuck” is the war horse of the team, having played four years, and receiving four service stripes. He is able to play any position and always plays clean basket ball. This year he played running guard.
Graham, left guard, is the next oldest man, receiving three service stripes. He is a good defensive player, and never is beaten, no matter if the score says so.
Davenport, captain, right forward, is next in line, with two stripes and a star. He is the fastest forward in the western league. A born leader, and the men were always back of him. His team work was perfect, and it will take a good man to fill his place next year.
Johnson, right forward, was regular this year for the first time. A good basket shooter and a hard man to guard.
Harvey, our big center, will have two more years; and next year he will be the fastest center in the league. Next year a team can be built up around him that will be hard to beat.
Bennett, the fast and wiry little substitute, will be missed next year. He kept the fighting spirit in tin1 team, and
also supplied the team with jokes and hard luck stories.
Penning, substitute guard, will make a good man next year, and promises to be a great leader for the team.
That the pennant next year will come to Alliance is the hope of the graduating players. Also, a track team is promised next year. This year for the first time, Alliance entered the track meet at Scottsbluff. Being our first year and with no experience whatever, we were unable to compete evenly with teams which have had experience and training. Next year Alliance will be able to enter experienced men and have a good chance to win the meet.
One of the activities of the High School is the Tennis Club. It was organized the first week in May. Officers were elected as follows; Helen Hewett, president; Marian Mote, secretary; Dorothy Smith, treasurer. The executive board, the members of which transact all business of the organization, consisls of Mr. C. A. Anderson as chairman; the three officers; Senior representative, Ruth Sturgeon; Junior, Marian Grebe; Sophomore, Edith Yan-dewark ; and Freshmen, Margaret Harris.
The club owns two courts, which have been put in condition, and they are open to members of the organization al the present time. If possible, they will be kept in condition during the summer. All members of the High School are eligible and may become members by paying the stipulated dues of fifty cents per year.0
