Miss Georgia Canfield is leaving us at the end of the year for a government position. While teaching in the A. H. S. she has been Sponsor of two classes—1916 and 1921. This is proof enough of her popularity with the students. Since the war began, she has put forth her best efforts toward the conservation of foods in the Domestic Science class and has helped the Red Cross Society in every way possible. Miss Bertha Wilson, who has been the instructor in the commercial department for the past few years, altho’ not returning here next year, is undecided as to what line she will follow. Miss Wilson has been a general favorite with the whole student body and will be gfeatly missed by those who remain here as well as the members of the class of 1917, whose Sponsor she was. Mr. T. R. Crawford, who has been the Principal for the past three years, is going to Chadron, Nebraska, as Superintendent of city schools, next year. We are sorry to lose Mr. Crawford for he has done much good both as an instructor and athletic coach. Thru his efforts football was introduced in the A. H. S. and has been very successful in returning the boys in school. As Spud Advisor he has helped us obtain our high standard with other High Schools. Miss Mary Wilson, for the past three years instructor of Latin and German in the A. H. S., will not be with us after this year. Miss Wilson has proved herself an excellent teacher and made everyone her friend. The Latin club has thrived under her direction. Her extensive travel in Europe has enabled her to give a better view of the historical places of Latin stories. She has endeared herself to every heart by her lovable nature and gentle manners. With regret we see her leave. Miss Alva Read has been with us only one year, but during that time she has become everyone’s friend. Her ability as a coach of girls’ basket ball is proven in the fact that the A. H. S. holds the northwestern Nebraska Championship. Her many clever and original ideas have furnished many enjoyments to the High School and Faculty. As Faculty Spud Editor she has shown her genius along the writing line. The loss of Miss Read will be greatly felt by the High School. The three teachers who will return next year are Mr. W. R. Pate, Superintendent of city schools; Mr. A. P. Stockdale, who is elected Principal, and Miss Mabel ::iiiiiiiiiiimininiiiiimiimiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiii(Hiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiniimiini:iiiiimwiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiniiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiic THE CLASS OF 1918 :iii!niiiiiimiiiiiiimimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiHiiiiiimiiii:iiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiii!miiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiii(' Mummiiiiiiiiiii THE SI n ROXIE BADSGARD “Happy am I, from care am I free.

Mr. Merrill is a hot-headed farmer who is constantly at work in his field. Having no education he thinks it is not necessary for his son, Merton, to learn more of farming as he has been pondering upon further schooling himself. Gus, the Swedish hired man, is of a careless nature, always threatening to quit but never taking further action. Miss Rose Meade, a charming school teacher has won the heart of Merton Merill. She does not think it possible to live happily on a farm so she refuses his offer of marraige. Mr. Ashley, a lawyer, has convinced Merton that he should learn more of scientific farming so Merton decides to go to school. In rage Mr. Merill demands that Merton give up his notion of learning to farm from books or else leave home. Mrs. Merrill pleads for Merton, but all in vain. Act II. In the city Merton has gained much popularity along with the desired knowledge. At a ball he meets Ashley and hears news from his home he had left five years before. Margerie, a society belle, makes many slighting remarks about the farm and Rose at once becomes indignant. As the evening progresses Mrs. Merill comes and Merton is overjoyed to see her and returns with her to the farm. Act III. Merton is a thrifty farmer. Gus has become more careful and sanitation has been instilled upon his mind and he has won the affection of Hulda, the Swedish maid. Rose Meade and Mr. Ashley arrive and Merton finds that Rose has changed her mind and wishes to help him on the farm. 20THE SFI'H A. H. S. CARNIVAL Owing to the fact that the Athletic Association was in need of funds, the Senior Class designed a Carnival to be given by all of the High School students under the auspices of the Senior Class. On Tuesday morning, May 7, Wilma Mote announced to the student body that the Carnival would be on the evening of May 18, in the High School building. On May 18, the High School building was alight and everything was ready. Over the doors were the signs showing which shows were in the different rooms. In one was the Orpheum, in others were the Minstrel, Movie Land, Toyland, and a Japanese Tea Garden. The police force and detectives were kept busy keeping order and the messenger and censorship girls were everywhere with the letters to and from the boys at the front. The evening passed quickly and everyone thoroughly enjoyed himself. Perhaps we can have another carnival sometime. JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET The Junior-Senior banquet was held in the High School gymnasium, on the evening of May 11. The room was beautifully decorated in orange and black, the Senior class colors, and the yellow tea rose was found in profusion. Everyone assembled promptly at six-thirty, and the program began.

The program given by these illustrious people was a wonderful success. They have many talented musicians and speakers. The boys’ chorus proved an honor to its class. The Merry Zingarellas are typical of the Class Spirit. Miss C.—“What is the cotton gin?” G. C.—“Gin they make out of cotton.” About thirty Sophomores spent an enjoyable evening at the gym Thursday evening, April 25. Many novel games w'ere played, among them the writing of love letters (by the boys). The dainty, but plentiful refreshments were served by Lyndell Lewis and Gordon Curtis, acting as waiteis. The guests of honor were Eliza Jane (Horace Fuller) and Mile. Petite (William Loomis). Shadows were sold and Stanley Wright very extravagantly bought two. The success of the party shows that the Sophomores have great ability to entertain themselves. 26 ra'bert. Garr et Cw rt «r'h °?er' V a r n ’ otsS ch. rabert. Edwards.

Vacation is almost here, once more, but we will be Sophomores instead of Freshies as we were this time last yea-. At the opening of school last year in September, many more pupils were enrolled in the Freshman Class than ever before. The ninth grade is composed of eighth grade graduates from Central and Emerson schools, also the district schools, as well as many from different parts of the state. Many of the class have dropped out, but we still have a large number left. The Freshman class has stepped ahead in all of the High School activities. We are first in the race for Thrift Stamps and Liberty Bonds. There are $500.00 worth of Liberty Bonds and $521.00 worth of Thrift Stamps owned by different members of the class. We are also honored by having one of our members in the Debating team, and we think the success of the Debaters is largely due to our representative, William Coutant. Two Freshmen girls entered the Declamatory Contest, Helen Brown and Naomi Gaddis, Noami winning a close second in the Dramatic section. In athletics our class has shown itself highly capable of carrying the burdens of the Class of 1918, on our shoulders; Clara Garret represented the Freshman Class on the girls’ first team in Basket Ball Both the boys’ and girls’ second teams we e almost entirely composed of Freshmen. We were very sorry to hear that we were going to lose our Class Sponsor, Miss Canfield, who has been such a great help to us during this, our first year of High School. Not only has she been a help to the Freshman, but to the whole High School. She was in charge of the Junior Red Cross Society and we are sure we cannot get another who will be so great a help to us all. She is leaving us for a government position, but we all think it is home government. IF (With apologies to R. Kipling). If you can clink Prof. Crawford and not let him Know that you are kidding him at all; If you can stay up every night ’till midnight, And when reciting never have to stall; If you can crib and still get by unnoticed. And pull down all the good grades one by one; Yours is the easy way through High School, And what is more, old kid, it can’t be done.—H. H. B. ’18. 28FRESHMAN CLASS First Row—Woods. O’Connor.

I ORGANIZATIONS I Ti»ww ....mnimmmiioinim.[Jilin..THK SITI LATIN CLUB Ray Edwards 1 he Latin Club held its second entertainment at the home of Mabel ' oung on April 13. The members of the Cicero class acted as hostesses. The usual Latin games were played and a program was given consisting of vocal solos by Marian Grebe and Ethel Clary, and a piano solo by Alta oung. Light refreshments were served. Thruout the whole year the Latin Club has been a source of much enjoyment for the High School and Alumni members. The use of the games keep everyone “brushed up” on the verbs and furnishes a means of remembering their principal parts. Even the teachers are often caught on such verbs as “doceo.” It is said that at the last meeting of the club, Mr. Pate was striving to help a rather poor student, when he chanced upon a hard verb. Very bravely he attacked it and luck came his way for the student misunderstood him and gave it correctly, thus saving the day for himself and partner and also Mr. Pate’s good reputation as a Latin genius. The Latin Club motto, “Scientia est Potentia” embodies all that the club strives to accomplish and what power it has attained in th social world of the school and what it will continue doing thruout the years to come. The Popular Man Fellows, I will tell you all about it. I am handsome; I have always been handsome. In my Sophomore year at Alliance High, I had to keep a calendar on my "dates” and split up my evenings to accommodate mv admirers. I was tremendously popular, and deservedly so. My popularity continued into my Junior year. I was still as popular as ever. And again my popula ity continues this year. I am still popular. But many are the long hours I spend bleakly alone while the other less popular boys are down “rushing” the gi Is. It is not my fault; it is not the fault of the boys; the fault of no one! Let me explain. When Gladys Eva, Margaret. Lena, Daisy and Liza run over their eligible lists to find someone to date with, they come to my name and stop longingly, and say. Gee! I d like to date with him but of course someone else has asked him first for a date. I’d only get stung!” So they don’t ask me. And I stay at home. And many are the long, long hours I ha e wept out, merely because I am paying the penalty of popularity. —H. B. ’18. 34LATIN CLUB First How Larson. Pate. Clary, Spacht. Briggs, Hawes. Mote.

Woods, Young, Wilson.TilK SHIP DEBATING Ray Edwards In the debating work the team, consisting of Howard Bennett, Cor-inne Mollring and William Coutant, won the first contest at Harrison, Nebraska, on March 15. The decision was unanimous. The second debate which was with Valentine at Alliance, on March 29, was also won by the local team, altho the decision was 2 to 1. The audience was very small, but despite this fact the contest was the best ever held in this city. On April 23, the team defeated Bayard at Bayard. By doing this they won the district championship and represented this district in the state debate, May 4. Only one more year of earning the district debating championship is nessary to obtain the banner as a permanent possession. We have had the banner two years in succession now and three years’ championship entitles the team to keep the banner. 3fiTill: SIM l» DECLAMATORY In the local declamatory contest the following ones were chosen to represent Alliance in the district contest: Jordan Robinson, oratorical: Corinne Mollring, dramatic; Wilma Mote, humorous. The district contest was held at Scottsbluff on April 10. Jordan Robinson took first in the district, thus entitling him to represent this district in the state oratorical contest. Corinne Mollring won second place in the dramatic and Wilma Mote took third place in the humorous. The state oratorical contest was held at Meade, Nebraska, on April 20. Jordan very easily succeeded in reaching the highest honors of the state by winning first place. This is the second time in the history of A. H. S. that our eontesatnt has taken state honors, the other one being several years ago when Leon Mal-lery won in the humorous division. We have every reason to be proud of our representatives this vear both in declamatory and debating work. A record that any school could well be proud of has been made this year, and here’s hoping the years to come will find the old A. H. S. among the leaders m whatever she undertakes. Mr. Crawford, the principal of the High School coached Jordan for his oratorical work. 37TilK sm REMEMBRANCES “Spud” days, so dear to me— Those happy days of yore; The happy times I used to have. With Floyd, Hugh and Jord. For years, and years will pass away. And I’ll be lonely then; Unless I pick this old book up, And see my friends again. I’ll not know where they all live, But I’ll remember them; This book will be a comfort, 'Twill be a priceless gem. —Anon. 38ii[3iiititiiiiiinijiiiiiiiiiic]iiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiic3iiiimmiiniiiiiiiiiiiicjtiiiiiiiiiiinTHE NIMTI ATHLETICS Howard H.

F. Lotspeich—G. F. THE SIDNEY GAME On Saturday evening, March 16, perhaps the most fiercely contested basket ball game of the year was fought in the High School gymnasium. At no time during the game could either team appear at an advantage and up till the last three minutes of play the score was a tie. In the last three minutes of play Sidney secured two goals but Alliance could get but one, the final score resulting 15 to 13. And so our old rival, Sidney, holds the championship of Western Nebraska. Perhaps this is due greatly to the fact that Sidney has been somewhat slack in other athletics. While we are busy at football in the autumn, their basket ball practices are running full force. Nevertheless, with such a promising lot of material and with the revived enthusiasm shown by the boys towards the game, we predict triumph for A. H. S. in ’19. Bayard High School has forfeited the return game that was scheduled to be played with A. H. S. on our home floor, Friday, March 29. Application, in athletics as well as in other school work should be the watchword of the students of today. We are sure the nation wants no slackers in the schools because if you have that tendency towards schoolwork, your time can elsewhere be spent more advantageously and productively. Otherwise, it is important that all students remain in the schools, as future adequacy and efficiency of the nation will depend upon the High School students of today. 40THE SPIT) GIRLS’ BASKET BALL Beulah Reddish This has been a very successful year for girls’ basket ball. There will only be two members left on the team that played this year, but we hope they can make the coming year as successful as this one has been. We have played six games and tried to get some others, but did not succeed. Two things that we are exceedingly proud of are, we won the championship and had some money left in the treasury. Our last game of the season was played with Chadron Normal. March 28, at Chadron. This was a very close game and we had to work for what we got. The score at the end of the first half was tied, 4 to 4. Both teams went back in the second half determined to win, and the score was kept even until just the last minute. Alliance threw a basket which made the score 13 to 14 in our favor. We left Alliance for Chadron about four o’clock Friday morning and expected to catch the oil train from Crawford to Chadron, but when we arrived in Crawford it had gone, so we put in the time in numerous ways, visiting the parks, going joy riding, etc. About one that afternoon we started on our journey to Chadron, on a freight train, as we thought the passenger would be too late. This was our first, last and only ride on a freight, but after some traveling not exceeding the speed limit at all. and then spells of sitting out in the country for an hour at a time, we arrived in Chadron about six o’clock, and about ten minutes before the passenger arrived. But we made good use of our time and had several basket ball games with the passengers. Between halves one man who seemed to have had considerable experience, entertained us with bear stories and other great tragedies. We were royally entertained while at Chadron. They had planned a slumber party for us out on a large sleeping porch. There were about twenty at the party. We had a very few hours’ sleep, but what of that when you can sleep when you are at home and have nothing else to do? The next morning we left for Crawford about eight o’clock, but we had decided the passenger train was good enough for us so we took it back. Then came another all-day wait in Crawford, until about eleven o’clock that night, but we didn’t mind for there is nothing slow about the city of Crawford. There was only one thing we regretted and that was that this was our last game. GIRLS’ BASKET BALL First Kow- Thompson. Second Row Nation. Read (Coachl, Thompson. Third Row—Cutts. Reddish.

Each year brings a bright and happy throng of young men and women, flushed with the first victory of well earned success, yet who are taking their first peep into the world that leads to broader and better things. In a city beyond far seas, there dwelt a youth who claimed not land nor gold, yet wealthier was sceptered sovereign, richer far than fancy ever dreamed. The great round earth, the sun, the moon and all the stars that gleam like fireflies in the silken web of night were his because they were garnered in the salvatory of his soul. And this youth was in love with life and held her to his heart as God’s most precious gift. Ah, beautiful was she, with her trustful eyes of blue, and hair of tangled sunbeams blown about her alabaster brow—beautiful beyond compare, and sweet as odors swept across the brine from the island valley of Avalon, maddening as Lydian music in which swoons the soul of youth. And Youth and Life built fair castles in the air, with turrets of sapphire and gates of beaten gold wherein they dreamed the days away. Of this soft dalliance was born a son and Life laughed and kissed the boy and called him Ambition and hid him in the secret recesses of her lover’s heart. Time sped on and soon the son became master of the sire, and all the host of heaven melted into a single star which poured its baleful fire into his face—the treacherous star of hope. Youth, Life, Ambition and Hope are the qualities which have brought forth the Class of 1918 at a time when some would have us think that peace and hope are dead; when the whole world sets up a hungry cry for big and honest men. This is but the meeting place of Youth and Life. Tarry but a moment lest the delay weaken the child, Ambition, and you are lost. Ambition is the great arc that circumscribes the usefulness of men. A graduating class never left school when opportunity offered such a chance and ambition will supply the power to lead them on. An Alumni honored by many men who have caught the spark of the pomp and circumstance of war to go forth with hope, ambition and high ideals to battle in the country’s cause now welcomes anothe: class. May this one prove the best of them all and reflect with everlasting glory down the corridors of time. This, then, is our greeting and our wish: May the meeting of your outh with Life be crowned with Ambition and High Resolve; may your each and every hope be well fulfilled. 44- ]!IIIIIIIIIIICJIIIIIIINIHnilllllllllll[]IIIIIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIII[]ll!lllllllll[)llllllllllHC:ili:il!lliit)llllll!llllinillllllllllOIIIIIIIII!fC)IIIIIIIHIII[]lllllllllill[]IIIIIIIIIHI[ I SCHOOL CALENDAR | • : .........................................................

Astigmatic Love Life was rosy-cheeked and glowing until the accursed day when I entered High School. Always 1 had passed thru life in continual ecstacy admiring the pretty girls that nature had placed in my path. There were no homely girls in existence—all were blue-eyed, rosy, charming and beautiful. But I came to the High School and they tested my eyes, and they encased them in spectacles. And oh! the difference to me. Life is now a terrible thing, the eistwhile visions have become nightmares, and there are no more pretty girls in the world. H. H. B. Grassy “Those Freshmen must be card sharks.” Dunbar—“How do you figure?” Grassy—“Ever notice how they shuffle their feet? 47TilK SIM II “Tragedy or Comedy” (In One Act) I had tried all possible means to make her see the sentimental side of our affair. But all my attempts had failed. That night, however, I had determined on new tactics. I sat at the opposite end of the davenport from her. After a time her eyes suddenly began to gaze at me with new interest. She looked steadily at me. I retained my composure. Her lips moved but I did not hear the words they made. Her finger beckoned me. I saw it all—“my new attitude had won her!” I moved towards her still holding my rising emotions in check. Motionless, I permitted her to lay her face on my breast. But as quickly she withdrew it and said: “One can always tell when cheap gasoline is used to clean clothes, can’t one?” She didn’t go to High School. A Little Too Thrifty A country youth was driving to the county fair with his sweetheart when they passed a booth where fresh popcorn was for sale. “My! Abner, ain’t that nice?” said the girl. “Ain’t what nice?” asked Abner. “Why, the popcorn; it smells so awfully good,” replied the girl. “It does smell kind o’ fine,” drawled the youth. “I’ll jest drive a little closer so you can get a better smell.” WHERE ARE YOU? Many things, both humorous and critical, are said about instructors in student circles. If you are one of the students, what is your reason? Was it your individual decision? Maybe it was from the uproar after a certain quiz of the concensus of opinion as to how a course should be taught. Perhaps you were unfortunate in allowing your sophisticated superiors to poison your mind before you were given any first hand evidence. Whatever be the cause, it will surely anesthetize your originality and tend to make you a victim of popular thinking, both of which should be incompatible with your latter life. Uncle Sam hates a coward, but almost equally the instructor dislikes the student who cultivates an acquaintance shy for “political” reasons. Even so if you think you have a just cause for a grievance, think it over again from all angles and if you still think so, see your instructor before you pollute the sweet minds of your fellow students. —H.
