BACCALAUREATE SERMON The Baccalaureate Sermon was preached at the Opera House on Sunday evening, May 21st, by Dean William Carson Shaw. The graduates attended in a body, attired in their gray caps and gowns. The sermon was especially good, and the Seniors are grateful to Dean Shaw for the helpful thoughts he gave us in his talk. He especially urged us to cervice for others when we go out into the world after leaving our High School, and told us that selfish aims stain and defile the image of Ood which is in us. COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES The Annual Commencement Exercises of the Alliance High School, for the spring of 1916, were held in the Phelan Opera House, on Friday evening, May 26th. President R. B. Crone of Hasting College addressed the graduating class and their friends, in a talk which was much enjoyed by all present. This event completes the High School career of these twenty-four young people, and at the same time brings them to the threshold of the unknown, the future which now seems bright before them. The best wishes of the Spud, the Faculty, and the Student Body, goes with them in their progress, and may their greatest hopes and desires for success become realities. ALUMNI BANQUET The Alumni Association and the Class of 1916 were entertained at the Annual Alumni Banquet, at the Alliance Hotel, on Thursday evening, May 25th. The event was greatly enjoyed by all present. CLASS DAY PROGRAM The class day program was held in the High School Auditorium on Wednesday evening, May the twenty-fourth. Only the friends to whom the Seniors issued tickets attended this function. The following program was rendered after careful preparation: Piano Solo.. ................................

Miss Wilson It was remarked once last year that Juniors like to advertise themselves. They do. The first year they advertised themselves in the wrong way (or so the faculty thought), last year they reformed, and this year they received the full approbation of all and have shown every one by their effort and ability in declamatory and debates that the best stuff in High School is in the Junior class. Their grades also indicate this, for a good percent will come in for scholarship honors next year. The industry and patriotism of the class was shown in the work done in obtaining the $5.20 from the Athletic Board for selling the most tickets to the Alumni basket hall game. Where can a man buy a cap for his knee Or a key for a lock of his hair? Can his eyes be called an academy Because there are pupils there? In the crown of his head what gems are set ?

We seemed, to ourselves at least, much less green than we had three or four months before, but we soon found that there was much of education before us and little behind us. That was easy to remedy, we thought, and went to work with a will, to conquer all we saw, as our esteemed friend Caesar once said about something or other—we’ve forgotten exactly what. A great many of the class arc second year Commercial people, others have entered well into the Manual Training, Agricultural and Domestic Science courses. Indeed, from the number in the class who have taken up such subjects ,we are inclined to think the class ot ’18 will be well represented in the farming and home making professions. For the others: “Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres,” proved a step to the higher learning they will undoubtedly take- up. The Sophomores enjoyed a hayrack party and weinie roast at Pur-inton’s Drove on Wednesday (‘Veiling, May 17. Although the weather man had forgotten that the event had been planned for this night and rain was the predominating element in the atmosphere, every one had a splendid time, and things went off very smoothly, even when Wilma unintentionally jumped (?) out of the hay rack, and to her own and every one rise’s surprise picked herself up, unhurt. The Sophomores have been unusually lucky this year on account of the number of sponsors they have had in so short a time. No other class can boast of so many. Our first one, Mrs. Isabelle Gabus Walker, preferred wedded bliss to the (sometimes) monotonous school room, and left us at the end of tin-first semester. Her place was then filled by Mr. Truman, who has been well liked by the members of the class, and of course is proud and happy to be sponsor for so royal a bunch. Our class has been unusually well represented in athletics ihis year. The captain of the football team and several others of the most valued players were Sophomores. In basket ball, too, we furnished the best guard in this part of the state, as well as one other first team man and several second team players.

From the eleven contestants who entered the local declamatory contest, the following were chosen to represent Alliance: Oratorical -Oral Harvey, “Touis-sant L’Overture.” Dramatic—Marian Mote, “The Going of the White Swan.” Humorous — Corrinne Mollring, “The Animal Show.” The District Contest was held at Bridgeport, March 30, 1916. A large crowd went from Alliance on “that Guernsey freight” with our delegates. The program was very long and was divided, the Oratorical contestants speaking in the afternoon.;:u THE SPUD Demosthenian First Row: White, Coker, Frankie, llaney. Second Row: Morrow, Hagaman, X.

The society was organized for the purpose of studying some of our best literature other than that which is done in the regular English course. The society is made up of the members of the Junior and Senior English classes. This year the society took up the study of “The Princess” by Tennyson, and found the work very enjoyable as well as profitable. At the time of organization Mildred Campbell was chosen as President, Teresa Morrow as Y’ice-President, and Everett O’Keefe as Secretary-Treasurer. Meetings wen-held once a month, a certain part of the poem being covered in the study each time. The members themselves directed and led the meetings in place of it being conducted by the Sponsor. Different members acted as hostesses. The study was followed by a social hour in which a short pro gram was rendered and the hostess served dainty refreshments. The initial year of the society has been a success, and we look forward to much good being accomplished as well as enjoyment received from the work in the future.

The Senior German class of A. H. S. was very enjoyahlv entertained by the Beginning German class at the home of Matilda Frankie on “All Fools Day.” For one evening all forgot that they were Americans and neutral and became followers of the red, white and black. All stood up while “Die Wacht am Rhein” was played and — well they didn’t play “The Star Spangled Banner.” Various games were played, all of which did not tend to promote the Senior dignity (?). At a late hour an appropriate Dutch lunch was served by the hostesses and when the party finally disbanded “ leh babe mich sehr gut amusiert ” failed to express their anjoyment sufficiently,, and many turned again to good old English for fitting words that would express their appreciation of one of the best school affairs of the season. Although the two German classes did not organize into a real club, this year, they held two parties which were greatly enjoyed by the members. It is to be hoped that during the coming years those that take up the study of the German language may have the privilege of enjoying themselves in the thoroughly German manner in which we found so much fun this year.

It was decided at that time that each class would entertain the club and the faculty at some time during the year. The Virgil class were hostesses to the Club at their first social meeting, which was held at the home of Janet Grassman October eighth. The Cicero class succeeded in carrying off the highest number of points in the Latin game. The second meeting of the year was held Thursday evening, December sixteenth, at the home of Alice Graham. The house was beautifully decorated in Christmas greens and tinsel. A delightful program was rendered by the Freshman girls. The Cicero class entertained for the evening, and again carried off the highest score in the Latin game. A pleasant evening was enjoyed by all. The last social meeting of the year was held April sixth at the home of Homer Barnes, where the Caesar class proved themselves excellent entertainers. A pleasing program was given, which consisted of a solo by Mr. Truman, and two violin solos by Paul Thomas. A dainty three course luncheon was served at the end of the evening by the class. The Cicero class again carried of the highest score and the class will receive a pennant, of the club colors, from Miss Sherdeman. This pennant will be hung in the High School Assembly room. On Tuesday evening. May ninth, a novel and pleasing Latin entertainment was given at the High School Auditorium by the Latin club. The affair was invitational, each member of the club inviting four guests. All present spoke of it as very interesting. A comedy, written in the Latin, “The Roman School,” was given by the Caesar and Cicero classes. The cast of characters was as follows: Magister—Lester Harvey. Servi—Maude Nason, Esther Sheldon. Paedogius—Naomi Slaughter, Addic Markham. Aldus Licinius Archais—Ethel Clary Publius Lininius Crassus — Charles Sisley. Gains Linius Crassus, adulescens — Oral Harvey.

The second part of the entertainment consisted of a dramatization of the love story of Virgil's “Aencid” found in books II and IV. Hannah Cotant wrote from translation the English version of the story of Dido and Aeneas, and read it in narrative form. Then the scenes and dramatic parts of the story were presented (Continued on page 34.)34 THE SPUD “CONDENSED AIR" Tlu Senior class play, “Condensed Air,” was given in the Phelan Opera House Friday evening, May 12. The place of the play was the Alliance High School and at the present time. It represented the attempt of the students to raise money for the purpose of building a condensed air factory. It has been learned that Sidney have a factory and that it is the use of this that enables them to overcome our boys in football. They decide to give a play, and with the proceeds to send one of their number who owns a mine in Klondike there to work it and then use the product of the mine for the factory. The play is a success and Phil returns with plenty of gold to build the factory. Phil, the hero, showed great ability in playing the part of the captain of the football team, and when he returned from the Klondike you thought he was a “sure-enough miner”. The play lacked a heroine, but every one of the girls played her part as naturaly as if she really were at the “little red school house” on the hill. The boys, too, played their parts naturally. The copper, played by Ira Wright, certainly deserves no further recommendation should he ever apply for that sort of a position. He will easily be able to land a place on the Orphcum Circuit as a siger, for everyone will concede that his rendition of “Casey Jones” was immense. The circus was a laugh from start to finish. Everett O’Keefe, as ticket seller, displayed much originality, and the crowd was unable to withstand his line of talk. The German Band furnished music throughout the show. Each and every act of the circus was well carried thru. But the specialties put on by different members of the class deserve special mention. The Spanish Dance given by Hannah Cotant was given in a manner that could not be excelled. The Highland Fling by Edna Bowman and Mildred Campbell, and the Dutch dance by Marian Grebe and Helen Schott were rendered in such a manner that one would think professionals had been secured for the occasion, had they not known that it was local talent. The audience showed their appreciation of all the specialties by insisting upon an encore. The play was well supported by the townspeople and the many expressions of appreciation of and satisfaction with the play prove that it was a decided success. Here’s to the CLASS OF 1916, and may all play their parts in LIFE as well as they did in “Condensed Air”. LATIN CLUB Continued from page 33.) by the rest of the girls in the Virgil class, and were acted and spoken in the form of a play. The role of Dido, being quite long, was taken in the first part by Marian Grebe, and in the second by Edna Bowman. Both girls showed fine talent and great preparation in handling the difficult part of the royal Bho-nician queen, who is abandoned by her Trojan lover. .Marian Mote took the part of Aeneas, the Trojan hero, who is to establish a new city and place therein the ancient gods of fallen Troy. The part of the messenger of the gods was taken by Dolly White, and that of Anna, a sister and confidant to Dido, by Helen Schott. Dolly White also played the role of larbas, a Gaetulian prince. All the parts were played exceptionally well, and all who witnessed the entertainment declared that the Virgil claoss is certainly a very talented company. The entire program was presented again the next morning before the High School student body, and was greatly appreciated at that time. —Reported by L. II., ’17.

The committee appointed for arranging the program consisted of Marian Mote, chairman, Hannah Cotant, and .lanet Grossman. At nine o’clock in the morning, the Seniors, arrayed in their caps and gowns, filed into their accustomed places in the assembly room. The following chapel program was given in their honor: Instrumental Solo Mrs. Zediker Recognition Address Mr. Pate Selection Faculty Quartette Farewell Address Oral Harvey, .Junior President This being such a novel idea, it was greatly enjoyed by the student body, and will very probably be carried on as a traditional custom of the school through the jears to come. The Seniors wore their caps and gowns to all classes the remainder of the day, and their new dignity gave them a very distinguished air, quite awe-inspiring to the under-classmen. JUNIOR SENIOR BANQUET The Junior-Senior banquet was held at the Drake Hotel, the 16th day of May, and was attended by the Seniors, Juniors and faculty, the number in all being about sixty-six. The tallies were decorated in pink and white, the Senior class colors. The toasts were very good, the list being as follows: Toast Mistress Mable (Irassman Welcome - Oral Harvey Response Fail Powell The Earmarks Miss Canfield Preparedness Dolly Hagaman Tomorrow and the Day After ............

H. S., one day each year is allotted to the Seniors for a “class hike.” Accordingly the Class of 1916 chose Thursday, May 18, for the big event. Scarcely had the sun arisen on the said morning when the twenty-four members of this illustrious class collected at the home of their sponsor, Miss Canfield, and from there stalled in cars for their first stop, Dunlap. Here breakfast was eaten, also some relics of their Junior picnic were picked up, and this led to a lengthy discussion of that never-to-be-forgotten event. Finally we were again on our way, and tin' next stop was Pine Ridge, where dinner was eaten and the better part of the afternoon passed. To us, the inhabitants of treeless Alliance, Pine Ridge with its many trees, was a real treat. When, as the sun was just disappearing over the tops of the pines, we again continued our journey, all were tired from roving as the class must confess to the absence of any climbers. Chadron, our final destination, was reached at just six, and here we ate supper. At length, by moonlight, we returned to Alliance, and when the lights of our little city finally appeared, all were as glad to get back as they had been to start many horn's before.THE SPUD 36 CLASS ELECTION 1.

The Normal Training department was organized in 1908 when the law for establishing such a department was first passed, and has been in continuous operation since that time. The subjects carried in this department are such that the graduates at graduation receive a second grade County Certificate, and after teaching one term of school they are entitled to a first grade County certificate. Pedagogy and the review subjects in this course are given in the eleventh and twelfth grades, three semesters being devoted 1o review subjects and one semester to Pedagogy. The first year the department was organized the various subjects were taught by different instructors in the High School, but since that time an instructor has been employed for the purpose of teaching Normal Training, who has had entire charge of the work . Since 1908 three instructors have had charge of the work; viz.: Miss Ida B. Johnson, for two years; Mrs. Isabella Walker (then Gabu.s), for five and a half years, and Mrs. Percy Stockdale, the present teacher for one-half year. The work consists of review work and methods of teaching; visils arc made to the various grade of the city schools, for the purpose of observing methods used there. Since most of the graduates of this department will teach county schools, two full days are devoted to visiting country schools and observing the methods and details of school work used there. Those who expect to teach find the course a very helpful one that the County Superintendent finds the strongest teachers among those who have taken this course. Reported by C. N., ’16.

COMMERCIAL COURSE The year of 1915-1916 is the third year for the Commercial Department, and so far this Department has been very successful. A groat many students every year have been enrolled either for the entire course or for separate subjects. The typewriting has become especially in demand as an elective, as well as the first year shorthand. Last year there were two graduates from the course, and this year there will probably be six or seven. The number and names of these cannot be ascertained exactly as yet, for the final examination grades have a great deal to do with whether or not the student will obtain his diploma for this department. It is tin aim of Superintendent Pate and Miss Wilson 1o find employment for all graduates, and so far this has been done. Many others also, who have not taken the entire course, but only the shorthand and typewriting have been found invaluable in positions offered them by the business men of the town.Agriculture40 DOMESTIC SCIENCE THE SPUD This course is given during two years of High School; the first is given during the ninth grade, and consists of cooking and serving of meals; together with theory lessons, which are given once a week. These lessons take up all subjects which have any connection at all with cooking, or keeping house. The first semester work consists of plain cookery together with fruit canning, and this jelly, fruit and preserves are used throughout the year by the girls. The second semester’s work follows out the regular outline of work until the Spring months. Then the class was divided into groups, of three and were given practice in serving and preparing meals. Each group takes charge of cooking and serving one week, each girl being given a chance at being waitress and chief cook. The last three weeks are given over to invaled cookery and to finish up the year’s work. Mr. Truman (in Physical Geography, speaking of crossing the Platte river): “How could we ford this river?” Bright Junior: “By taking the engine out and floating with the current.” DOMESTIC SCIENCE 10 The second year of Domestic Science consists of serving. Various models are made, both by hand and by machine. Many articles of fancy work are also made. Then the making of the girls’ clothes is taken up. This work extends into the second semester and is about tht most practical side of the course. The last month or two is given over to Interior Decoration, plans of house furnishing, decorating and all other things which come under this department. The girls draw plans and construct on paper their ideas of the ideal house, the arrangement of rooms, sewerage and drainage,exterior and interior decorations and all such things are considered. This work of Interior Decoration concludes the work of the last year in Domestic Science. Reported by I). W., ’16. AGRICULTURE Under the leadership of Mr. Perry the Agricultural classes have made several trips into the country and have visited various farms and ranches in the vicinity. The boys have greatly enjoyed these trips besides gaining a great deal of practical information. Three of the boys of the Agricultural course: Carl Powell, David Purinton and Norman Newberry, made up the Stock Judging team which represented Alliance in the contest held at Lincoln this spring. This is the first work of the kind the boys have tried to do and they did not win a very high plaee. However it was very good practice for the boys, and very probably hereafter such work will be taken up more extensively and Alliance will be much better represented in the State- Contests. MANUAL TRAINING Mr. Perry has had charge of the Manual Training Department tin-past year and has proven himself efficient in this line. This department has always been very popular among the boys entering the ninth and tenth grades, and some very fine work has been done by them. A change has been made in this department for the coming year, by which one who intends taking Manual Training must be able to spend three periods each day upon it, the two periods heretofore required being found insufficient to cover tin work made necessary by college requirements.THE SPUD 41 Calendar Sept. 6 Sept. 16 Sept. 16 Sept. 23 Oct. 8 Oct. 12 Oct. 14 Oct 14 Oct. 15 Oct. 22 Oct. 29 Oct. 29 Nov. 5 Nov. 12 Nov. 15 Nov. 22 Nov. 26 Dec. 10 Dec. 13 Dec. 15 Dec. 16 Dec. 17 .Tati. 3 Jan. 7 Jan. 10 Jan. 12 School is started again.

Well, we won’t quarrel about it, but the Seniors do not agree with them. Second meeting of Demosthenian Club, at home of Freda Corbett. Sophomore girls give a shower for their sponsor, .Miss Gabus. Cicero class entertains the Latin Club at the home of Alice Graham. A fine time enjoyed by all. Mr. Perry, by mistake, goes the ‘‘longest way ’round” on the way home, and his ears get awfully cold!

Chadron Normal gives the girls another victory to add to their list. Chadron High defeated here by our girls’ team. Our boys do think the Chadron girls are SO cute! Our boys defeated by Grand Island at the State Tournament. Mr. Crawford gets awfully homesick. Demosthenians meet at Carlson’s. The third Spud comes out. Focal declamatory contest.

They won the game by making a goal as the whistle blew, ending in a score of 18 to 12. A second team game was played, also, with Sidney’s second team the same evening, our boys winning by a score of 7 to 5. We defeated Kimball here Feb. 11 by a score of 14 to 12. One of the fastest games of the season. Played Chadron High at (.'hadron and were defeated principally by the parlor variety of refereeing used by Supt. Haves of Chadron. Score, 31 to 11. We defeated Chadron Normal at Chadron, Feb. 17, by a score of 14 to 12. Last game of the season. We were defeated at the state tournament by a score of 12 to 3, played with Grand Island, March 8. The line-up for this year is as follows: Lester Harvey (capt.), center; Everett O’Keefe, Donald Spencer and Floyd Lotspeich, forwards; Ira Wright, George Fenning, Robert Ralls and Philip Grove, guards. High School-Alumni Game A benefit game was played at the High School gym, March 31, for the Athletic Board. This was beyond doubt the fastest game of the year, and it is remarkable that the High School boys could defeat a team ot their ability. Our boys earned their victory because of the practice they had constantly put in. The result was 20-19, favor of H. S. GIRLS' BASKETBALL Chadron High School vs. Alliance H. S. at Chadron In this game our girls carried away the large end of the score. It was rather an amusing game. The Chadron guards played forward and the forwards played guard, second center whatever she took a notion. Mr. Hayes, the Chadron coach, was rather put out at times when their guards would run to the other end of the field and Ruth or Beulah quickly threw the ball back 1o Ed- ith, who tossed it into the basket, whether her guard was there or elsewhere. Sidney High School at Alliance On Thursday evening, March 9th, in our gymnasium. Of course we had to play closed courts with Sidney, but anyway we won the game by the score of 23 to 31. After the game was nicely started, Sidney saw that our guards were too much for their forwards, so they undertook to put center in as forward and one of their guards as center. Our girls refused to let them make this change until the end of the first half Sidney was rather peeved at this and we didn’t know for a few minutes how it would turn out but the captains and coaches of both teams got out their cute looks and Sidney reconciled with a good spirit. Three of our team graduate this year. Ruth Nation, our running forward, who has been one oi the best forwards on the team for four years, will certainly be missed. Florence Whaley, our second center, a dandy little player, also goes out this year: also Jennie Blaine, who has guarded in most of our games this year, graduates 1 liis spring. TENNIS One of the activities of the High School is tennis. The Tennis Club was organized early in the fall, and the following officers were elected: President, Marian Mote; secretary, Miss Wilson; treasurer, Janet Grass-man. The school owns two courts which are kept in good condition and all members of the H. S. alumni who pay the dues of 50 cents per year are eligible to play. Altho there are not many who play the few who do are very much interested, and several good games have been played. W e hope to keep the courts in good condition all summer and continue the work begun.April 12 April 28 May 9 May 12 May 16 May 18 May 21 May 2:3 May 24 Mav 24 May 26 May 26 T H E S P U D 45 (Continued from page forty-two.) City Park, and all the girls rush out to find her. It’s such a nice moonlit evening—Hannah and Oral do hate to come; they’d rather walk! The Seniors are certainly busy! Play practice every evening, also every morning for the Virgil gilds, besides a lot of other work. Our debating team defeated at Sidney, two to one. Latin play. The Caesar and Cicero classes give “A Roman School.” Zeke makes a very good “Magister”, doesn’t he? The Virgil girls give in play form the love story of Dido and Aeneas, taken from Virgil’s Aeneid. Senior play, ‘‘Condensed Air,” declared to be the best and cleverest Senior play put on here for several years. ‘‘1916 never does anything by halves—” It sure was good.
