Senior QuartetteClass History If you will give me your kind attention for a few moments, I will tell you the story of a marvelous class, the most wonderful class that ever came to Alliance High School, namely the class of 1024. Its life has continued for twelve years. Although many of our present members did not enter the class at the beginning, but joined us on the way, ten of the number are still with us. Forty-nine more, seven of whom have had all their work in the Alliance schools, have joined us, giving us a class of 59 members. The main event of our grade school days was the burning of the Old (.'entral building. Many heard the alarm about four o’clock on a morning in 1914. and witnessed the destruction of our school house. For about six weeks we enjoyed a vacation. After that, room was made for us in what is now J. H. S. Years passed by rather uneventfully until in 1919 we reached the eighth grade. This year there was considerable rivalry between the two grade school basketball teams. Central and Emerson. The ( entral girls won two games. Emerson one. and the Central hoys wen all three games. Of course, upon entering High School this rivalry was forgotten. and we played as a team. Some of our most noted players at that time were Esther Vanderlas and Edna Miles who played on the (’entral team, and Eva and Neva Beal who played on the Emerson team. In the fall of 1920 we entered Alliance High School, a band of one hundred live young people fiom Emerson. Central and the country schools, eager to learn, and proud to be counted as one class of A. H. S.. though maybe the greenest of them all, as all freshman are. Green means growth, and how eager we were to grow! We were willing to endure the various experiences necessary to the training of Freshmen. After our work was started, we organized our class with Charles Cross as president. Lucille Butler. vice-president. Will;am Bicknell. secretary-treasurer. Katherine Harris. Spud representative. and Miss Bishop as our sponsor. Our first social event was the Mixer in which all classes were represented. Formerly. this was an annual event, but we Freshmen were very much pleased and surprised with it, for you realize that we were “Just Freshmen.’ But how rapidly we wer developing! This "Mixer ’ they told us. was a social event for aiding all classes to become acquainted. We did this in a very short time. We became so bold that we even called the Seniors, whom we had met in the course of the evening, by their first names! No side of life was neglected even in our first year. We were represented on the second basketball teams by Charles Cross and Esther Vanderlas. At the suggestion of our class sponsor, we gave a party during the basketball season, with the Sidney boys as our guests. A large number attended, and everyone reported a splendid time. Our class was represented by many enthusiastic workers in the Declamatory Contest, and one of our number, Frances Fletcher, won first place in the humorous department. Also, in debate, we were represented by Charles Cross and King Robbins. This year we gave successful class programs in the assembly. Inspired by the coming of spring we ventured on a picnic to I’urlnton's grove, where we enjoyed buns, wieners, pickles, and ice cream cones, and returned home in the height of confusion in the midst of an April shower. Thus our Freshmen year was pleasantly and profitably spent and we eagerly looked forward to the next year. When again entering A. H. S.. we did not hesitate to claim our rightful place as highly developed representatives of this school. We did not. however, enter school with the same number with which we had entered last year. We had lost some cf our members, some dropping out entirely, and some, sad to relate, were left in the 25Freshmen class, and others went ahead as Juniors. Our officers this year were Helen Hawes, president. Wayne Threlkeld, vice-president. Gladys Sturgeon, secretary-treas urer. Phyllis Thompson. Spud representative, and Miss Braddock. sponsor. Our Sophomore year was one of study and achievement as the long honor rolls of that time bear witness. But in addition to this, we were represented in all school events, including basketball, football and declamatory contest. Our first social event of this season was a class party, where we had a very good time. We all participated in the games in the gym, playing the old favorites. W.vnkem. Flying Dutchman and Three Deep. About 10:30, a delicious lunch was seived after which some went to their homes. Others, not having had enough excitement stayed until the clock struck the Cinderella hour, then with King Robbins truck as the pumpkin coach started home. The magic hour being past, we had all sorts of bad luck. We got stuck in the mud, lights went out. but finally we all reached our homes tired but happy. In the early spring of this year we had a picnic at Broncho lake. All members of the class attended, and reported a very good time. Thus passed our Sophomore year. Before we could realize it. fall was with us, and in September. 1922, we entered school again, refreshed by our long vacation and determined to work with greater energy, for this year was to be the busiest we had yet known. This year we had the greatest problems of our lives, thus far. in the shape of physics experiments, and the thoughts of mighty essayists, but in spite of these, we found time for sports and other activities of the school. Our class officers for this year were Lilia Graham, president. Esther Vanderlas. vice president. Mark Anderson, secretary-treasurer. Ed Yarter. athletic representative, King Robbins. Spud representative. This year we were again represented in football, basketball, debate and track. We were also represented in the high school orchestra and the operetta. Cinder olla. We made remarkable advances in the declamatory work this season. Miriam Harris won first place in the dramatic section in the district contest held at Gei ing. Again we participated in the social activities, and this year we did something which no other class, to our knowledge, ever did. We gave a carnival, the proceeds nf which amounted to over $30. which, with our class dues, helped pay for the Junior-Senior banquet. A large crowd attended the carnival, and every one enjoyed the evening visiting the different booths such as the Siamese Twins. Beauty Parlor, the Most Beautiful Girl, and of course, the Fat Woman, who is indispensable to any carnival. Our next social event was a Valentine party, our guests being, as in our Freshmen year, the Sidney basketball boys. The first part of the evening was spent in games. Later we went for refreshments to the English room, which was beautifull decorated in red and white streamers, candles. Valentine place cards, and Valentine favors. Next came our Junior Class play. “Stop Thief." This year the committee, with the advice and assistance of Miss Braddock. was particularly fortunate in the selection ( f the play. Who could have made a more adorable old man than Mark Anderson? Or who could take care of an absent-minded old man better than Lilia Graham? Both Played their parts exceptionally well. Vivian Corbett, Miriam Harris, and Ethel Fuller, as the daughters of the family took their parts very naturally. Edmond Yarter and King Robbins, the would-be-sons-in-laws acted their parts in a very pleasing manner. You never would have thought that J. Cantlin and Mildred Pate would make such a fine pair of crooks. Garland Baker made a good business man. Leo Guszak managed affairs exceptionally well. Earl Vanderlas and Philip Kilian as his assistants. Daniel Foley, plain clothes man. Charles Cross, the minister and Verne Lyon, chauffeur, wen all good. What was perhaps the most elaborate Junior-Senior banquet in the history ol the Alliance High School, was given at 6:30. May Day. 1923, in the Methodist church banquet hall. While the five-piece orchestra played, the guests marched in and took their places at the “A" shaped table with plates set for one hundred. The hall was decorated with green and white crepe paper, hung from the ceiling, and terminating in a hedge of apple blossoms around the room. The windows were draped with pink and white crepe paper, and at each window a canary in a pink covered cage sang throughout the evening. The tables were decorated with pink and white candles andpink roses. At each plate was an open rose nut cup with a butterfly place card. The menu cards were hand painted roses. The dainty dresses worn by the waitresses suggested the class flower. The toast list included Lilia Graham. Leland Messex, Miss Clemmons, Earl Fredericks. Esther Nason. Bernice Ferguson, and Mr. Pate, with King Bobbins as toastmaster. A great deal of credit is due to Miss Braddock our sponsor who by hard work and encouragement, made the banquet a complete success. Thus, we finished our Junior year, one of our happiest years in High School. In the fall of 1923. we again entered high school, but what a difference! This ear we were Seniors! And we were resolved to do credit to this name. We were proud to be the first class to lie graduated from the new High School building. Our officers this year were Mark Anderson, president. Lilia Graham, vice-presi dent, Garland Baker, secretary-treasurer, Esther Vanderlas. Spud representative and Verne Laing, athletic representative. Again we were represented in all athletic activities This year we won both girls’ and boys’ inter-class basketball games, and we are very proud of ourselves. The girls’ team had Boyd Laing as a Mascot this year, and he proved that good luck results from mascots such as he was. We were represented in debate, also, and two of our members. Verne Laing, and .1 Cantlin, secured places on the first team. Again we had a carnival, and this year we cleared $80 half of which was given to the Annual fund and the other half used to defray part of the expenses on our caps and gowns. This carnival was much better than the one we gave last year. We again had many booths, such as the King Tut. Fortune telling, and Negro minstrel. Later in the evening we gave a play entitled. “The Irish Linen Pedler.” In November we gave a backward party to which backward invitations Wfere sent to all Seniors and members of the faculty. All games participated in were played backwards. After the games, we all walked backwards to the cafeteria for lunch. Our next social event was the high school Mixer, sponsored by the Senior class. It is the only event of this nature ever attempted here by a High School class. Two hundred fifty were present. Tpon entering the gym. we were presented with colored booklets which were divided into seven lots, each of a different color with the names of the games played, in the front of the book. In these books, different students wrote their fi st impression of the owner. Each group, led by its captain made a tour of the building, visiting each of the seven rooms at which various of the old. favorite games were played. After all the groups had completed the tour, they were led by a drummer down the hall, and from there to the gym. whore lunch was served. The faculty and the Sidney basketball boys were guests. "Come Out of the Kitchen.” one of the best plays ever given by A. H. S. students was presented by the Senior (’lass, April 3. The play is a comedy centering around the complications arising when Burton Trane, a northern millionaire, rents the magnificent mansion of some Virginia society folks who are temporarily in need of money. To make ends meet these young Southerners lease their mansion and then find circumstances such that in order to hold the lease they must act as servants. Trane falls in love with Olivia, who is posing as the Irish cook and this love causes many complication. More fun is added to the play by the unsuccessful attempts of Mrs. Falkner, a society snob, to marry her daughter to Trane. Mardell Drake, as Mrs. Falkner. was one of the stars of the play. Garland Baker, the all-around house boy. is another promising actor around whom many of the amusing situations of the play centered. Robert Laing and Dixie McManus, as the leading characters showed themselves to be real actors. Other parts were taken by Lilia Graham. J. Tantlin. Esther Vanderlas, Verne Laing. Helen Hawes, Mark Andersen and King Robbins. The highest honor granted by A. H. S. is Excellent Scholarship. Seven members of the class of ’24 were awarded this honor. They are Lilia Graham. Esther Vanderlas. Helen Hawes, Mark Anderson. Paul Thompson. Robert Laing and Verne Laing. 27Senior Poem I he worlds a stage. ’—twas Shakespeare said. “The people are its ac tors” And so we take our parts in life. As great or smaller factors. Four years ago the stage was set. The curtain rose and found us. As Freshmen entering A. II. S. With strange scenes all around us. Sometimes our parts we learned full well. Oftimes our memory failed us; Applause and honors came our wav. And failures too, assailed us. Sometimes the play was comedy. Oft tragedies came thickly; Our rank were thinned by those who fell. Our cast—it changed as quickly. And in this play, some were the stars. While others shone less brightly; Some gave their best in every way. Some took their duties lightly. We’ve filled our parts, we've played the play. The curtain now is falling; Class ’24 its exit makes. It hears the future calling. The play goes on We II choose our parts. W ith zeal that must not cool; We must make good, bring honor To our old Alliance school.Class Song As we turn from school days. With our hearts full of praise. There are memories we cannot forget. We’ve been pals good and true. How we've loved no one knew To our school we owe many a debt. Dear old pals of our school days. We’re happy tonight. Rut soon we’ll be scattered. And gone from our sight. And the sweetest of memories will Come back again After years of hard struggle Our hopes we attain. Every room in the building We’ve all learned to love From the gym in the basement To class rooms above. Now with the thought that our life's just begun Turns each of us toward work to be done. As from teachers we turn Our hearts will ever yearn. For Alliance and school days All the world we would give If we could but just live I nder influence like this alwavs. JClass Prophecy Knter Witches First Witch—Thrice of years have the Juniors spent in Alliance High School striving to gain the ways of knowledge. Second Witch — Thrice and once the Seniors. First Witch — Round about the caldron go; Youth is swift, age is slow— The past is gone, the present won. But the future's yet to come.

(Curtain.)Last IDill and Testament of the Class of 1924 We, the Senior class of the Alliance High School, in the county of Box Butte and State of Nebraska, being of sound mind, memory, and understanding do make our last will and testament in manner and form following: First: We give, devise, and bequeath to one and all classes our unerring good sense and remarkable instinct in choosing a class president, selecting him or her not for beauty, wealth or common sense—alone; but for a wonderful combination of all three qualifications. Second: We hereby direct, and impower our executor to sell and dispose of all superannuated fountain pens, erasers, note books and powder puffs to the highest bidder at auction, as soon as practicable after our departure, the proceeds thereof to be used for purchasing a mirror for Mr. Prince’s office. Third: We, hereby direct that a bill for a $150.00 diamond ring, purchased from Thiele’s by Garland Baker shall be sent to Kenneth Banks for immediate collection. Fourth: We will our seats and all gum thereupon to the Junior so that they need not “chew the rag” hereafter. Fifth: To the Freshmen, who are soon to become Sophomores, we bequeath and devise all our stupidity and faculty for blundering at the simplest tasks, also all the beautiful ease with which we forget, set aside, and banish forever the difficult ones. Sixth: All our ability to see things which never had any existence and to magnify trifles, we give to the community at large who are fond of telling what they would do if they were teachers or members of the Board of Education. Seventh: We will and bequeath the following: .1 Cantlin’s recipe for reducing to William Zeig; Lilia Graham’s inclination to study to Glen Hughes; Charles Cross’ ingenuity in managing literary societies to Alice Prettyman. Eighth: We give, devise and bequeath a pair of rubbers which, judging by their size must have belonged to King Robbins, to William Irish. A pocket dictionary from which Verne Laing is supposed to have obtained his stock of big words to Doris Mallery to be used in conducting class meetings. A rag doll discarded by Daniel Foley to James Armour. An umbrella, which, for these four years has stood the storms and vicissitudes of life to the next Freshman class. A vase containing “hope” the only virtue kept in Pandora’s casket, we give and bequeath to our Alma Mater. Ninth: All our love for the good, the true, and the beautiful, we bequeath to the world at large, to be absorbed at every opportunity “in season and out of season.” And now, friends, since we have used our best judgment in the disposal of these priceless gifts we trust that all will feel satisfied. Signed, sealed, published and acknowledged by the said Senior Class as and for their last will and testament in the presence of us and at their request, and in the presence of each other have subscribed our names hereunto as witnesses thereof.

The guests were ushered in by maidens in Spanish costume. The room was decorated to represent a Spanish garden. Above was a sky of blue dotted with golden stars. In the center of the room was a fountain whose spray reflected colored lights. Posts and balcony of the room were overgrown with vines suggestive of an old castle. The walls were hidden behind lattice-work of green which served as a background for crimson roses and brilliantly colored parrots. The same colors were used in table decoration and menu. An orchestra of guitars and mandolins furnished the music. Between courses a Spanish dance was given by a group of girls. Oliver McPherson acted as toastmaster and the following toasts were given: Buenos dias ........ A Her .............. El eastillo en Espano Esta dia ........... Manana .............

PartridgeSophomoresI hr Green stuck out of their faces, and their timid smiles portrayed their feelings when the class of 26 entered the high school as freshies. Everywhere they looked or went something had happened or they imagined it had. to get them mixed up. Everywhere they turned they saw upper classmen watching with taunting eyes and amused grins to see what they would do next. These “green” ones were not so had as they seemed at first for their “pep began to show as soon at they got acquainted with things. They gave a party near the end of the school year and those present had a much better time than did the upper-classmen, who were more dignified, have at their parties. 4 I his class by no means lost its “pep by losing a few of its members for others came in next year though the enrollment was only 88. With a smaller membership the class made more rapid progress than in the previous vear. Their first meeting was held early in September and the officers were elected.

Mrs. Autrey and Miss Park« The heads of the upper-classmen were kind of whirling when they came to the realization that the Sophomores had already had a party. This was given October 19, in the gym. They had hardly recovered from this blow when they were surprised to learn that the “Little Sophs” were giving three one-act plays. The whole school was amazed by the ability of the Sophs. In basketball this class was not in the back ground but showed true spirit Debate made a few others “sit up and take notice” when the Sophs won the championship of the school and received the cup presented by Mr. Prince. Not only in athletics and outside activities were they active. The honor roll displayed several names that were in this class. As tin end of the year drew near it was discovered much to the humiliation and disgust of the others that this “live bunch” also had the least number of failures in the high school. I am sure this class has brought many honors to the high school and we hope they will bring more in the years to come. 43FreshmenOn Monday the third day of September about one hundred boys and girls classed under the title of Freshmen entered the new Alliance High School for the first time. After much confusion and many mistakes such as asking for “Common Civics” and a book labeled “Assembly,” the great process of registration was completed. The first day was Irving indeed, especially after the laugh we received on entering the auditorium. But we were almost finished when we learned that the report that we must share the study hall with dignified Seniors was true. It seemed to us that Mr. Prince or Mr. Partridge or someone ought to take a little pity on us. Our first class meeting was held October 1. 1923 and class officers were elected.

Our first party was held Friday the ninth of November. The chairman of the refreshment committee being Kdwin Miller and of the entertainment. Hazel Young. That party! How we did work and strive to be sure to please the faculty. But we had a lovely party, and the praises we received from our guests made us almost as vain as the Seniors. We worked hard at our books, too, and weren't we proud when the honor roll came out with so many freshies on it! I hen the Seniors challenged us to make $40.CO by selling old papers and magazines. Of course we accepted and made good. Then came the basketball season. It seemed as if the girls just couldn’t get a victory although they fought like cats and dogs. I he boys were able to bring down the Junior flag with a well fought game. Gwendolyn Maloney and ern Cribble were our captains. I he Seniors gave an all High School party after the Sidney-Alliance basketball game. We had the largest number there and received a prize which proved to be a box of raisins, but it seems only the class president enjoyed the benefits of them. We then decided it was time for another class party so a meeting was called and Hex Thompson was elected chairman of the refreshment committee and Harold Van-derl as chairman of the entertainment committee. The guests at our party were the faculty, Chappell and A. H. S. basketball boys. Debate came next on the program. Only a few tried out for this, but nevertheless we were proud of them. The freshmen team consisted of Mary Beth Lucas, Jimmie Cribble, ( ail Robbins and William McCoy alternate. We lost to the Sophomores who later won from the Seniors, so we felt that maybe we did as wiell as the Seniors. Then the Operetta was given and we were glad to see so many of the f reshman girls and boys take part in helping another school activity. On the whole we believe that w c have made a pretty good record in this, our first year, and we expect great things in our next three year in A. H.

Alliance played the hardest schedule in the state, and went through every game except the Grand Island game, which was cancelled on account of the financial condition of both teams. The team was rather slow in getting started, and did not reach its full stride until the middle of the season. Alliance played the first game on the home field with Chadron, and won easily 33 to 3. I lie second team played a considerable part of this game and it was while the scrubs were in that Chadron got over their lone drop kick. Garvin, McPherson and Laing starred in this game, but the team did not play the brand of football against Chadron that they did in later games. In the second game Alliance went up against the heavy and fast Crawford team, and was beaten 1 I to 10. Alliance was not quite ready for Crawford, although they played much better football than in the Chadron game. Garvin scored all of Alliance's points in this game by intercepting a pass, running for a touchdown, and kicking a field goal. Lincoln, then considered the strongest team in the state, was next on the schedule. The game was played on the Lincoln field, and Alliance, tired from the long trip, blew up and were snowed under by an 84 to 0 score. Many fumbles played an import ant part in this game. It was the worst defeat Alliance had received in five years. With two weeks of training tile team got going and defeated Sidney on the home field 26 to 7. This was the first game, w ith the exception of Crawford, in which the team played to the best of its ability. Sidney scored late in the game after a series of successful passes. In this game Alliance was without the services of Garvin. Alliance played its second game with an eastern team, and the fifth of the reason. with Beatrice on the home field and lost 3 to 0. During this game Alliance clearly outplayed its opponents but due to bad breaks was unable to score. Alliance was within striking distance seven times but could not get the ball over. The game was played in a sea of mud. The annual game with Bayard was next and. Alliance lost 30 to 0. It was the first time in the history of the schools that Bayard had shut out Alliance. In this game, as in most of the others Alliance was outweighed. The game was much closer than the score indicates. Alliance battled her old rival Scottsblufl to a 0 to 0 tie on the ScottsblufT field the next Friday. After being behind until the last quarter Alliance pulled the game out of the fire, when Garvin broke through on a cross buck and ran seventy yards for a touchdown. Both teams missed the try for point. Gering. which had not won a game, came next, and Alliance hud little trouble winning 58 to 0, on the home field. In this game Garvin was good for a touch down nearly any time he got the ball. Coach Prince ran in a second backfleld tlfi last quarter, but Gering was unable to stop them. The Gering men were heavy but clearly showed that they were not in training. After many negotiations Coach Prince arranged a Thanksgiving game with Chappell, which was considered one of the strongest western Nebraska teams. The game was anybody's game for three quarters, but in the final period Chappell opened up and got away w ith some good passes. The final score was 15 to 3 in favor of Chappell. Following the game with Chappell on Thanksgiving day, Robert Laing was elected to pilot the 1924 Alliance High School football team. ‘‘Bob” has distinguished himself in both basketball and football since entering high school, and under his leadership the outlook for next year is good.COACH PR I NCHI Hat the girls of Alliance High School do not lack athletic spirit and enthusiasm i shown by their games this year. At the beginning of the season the class games were played, and the Senior girl were the class champions. Then the regular school team was chosen. The first game played by the High School team was at Chadron, January 25. The Chadron girls won by one point, the score being 6 to 7. On the following Friday, Chadron played the return game at Alliance, and Alliance won by a score of 10 to 1. February 5. Crawford girls played at Alliance and were easily defeated. The score was 1 I to 1. Alliance played the return game at Crawford, February 29. This game ended with the score 8 to 1 in favor of Alliance. Although the girls played only four games, the season was very enjoyable.FIRST TEAM basketball Out of 24 games played with high school teams during the 1924 basketball season, the Alliance team won five, and made a total of 237 points to its opponents 430, a record, which, considered in a “won and lost” sense only, is considerably the poorest an Alliance team has made for some years. In addition to these games the team played eight games in the City League, and by winning four of them brought its season’s record to nine games won out of 32 played. These 32 games comprise the hardest schedule Alliance ever undertook. Immediately after the football season Coach Prince issued a call for basketball candidates, and arranged for the class games as soon as possible. These games were played the week before the Christmas vacation. The Seniors went through the tournament undefeated and gained victories over each of the other class teams. After the class games Coach Prince began the task of building the school team. Of the Championship 1923 squad but two regulars remained, and in all only four letter-men were back. Of these Captain Thompson and Charles Cross were the only ones who had had much experience. Bob Laing and Jack Young having played sub in 1923. Nearly 50 candidates reported for the first practice, and throughout the year more than 30 came out regularly. Competition for places on the first team was very great, and four teams, each with several subs were formed. Of these teams the “Midgets” composed entirely of Freshmen received much favorable comment, and were allowed to play most of the preliminaries for the first team games. In order to season the inexperienced squad Coach ‘Prince arranged for a two weeks’ vacation trip, scheduling nine of the strongest teams in eastern Nebraska. The team started on this hard trip with less than a week of practice and this, together with the strain of playing nine games on successive nights caused the team to lose every game. Despite these nine straight losses the team felt satisfied with the results of the trip. Many of the games—at least half of them—were very close, and were decided by the breaks, which were invariably against Alliance. Seven men besides the coach made this trip. They traveled more than 1000 miles and were away from home eleven days—one of the longest trips a Nebraska high school team ever took. Returning home the team began the conference race with a bang, winning itsfirst two conference games. After this start the old jinx returned, and the season became one of ups and downs. The team defeated such strong aggregations as Scotts-bluff (twice), Oshkosh. Sidney and Morrill, but due to defeats by both Bayard and Chappell, it landed far down in the conference standings. All of the conference tie-feats Alliance suffered, with the exception of the second Oshkosh game, were by close scores and with any kind of luck. Alliance would have landed in no lower than third place. For example the defeats handed Alliance at Chappell. Bayard and Mitchell were all decided by fewer than four points and were all characterized by Alliance's failure to make numerous easy shots. The greatest disappointment of the season turned out to be the Chadron tourna-ment—an event towards which the entire team had “pointed" for the whole season. Arriving at Chadron six minutes late, due to had roads, the team was forced to forfeit its first game to Gering. and was thus eliminated from the tourney without having a chance at the cup. By decisively defeating the formidable Morrill team in a “consolation" game. Alliance gave the fans an idea of what it would have done had it been in the tournament. Alliance was going at top form at the time of the meet, and only the week before had defeated Sidney, one of the teams that reached the finals of the tourney. After a bad start the high school turned out to be one of the strongest teams in the City League. Defeats administered by the Independents and American Legion put the team out of the championship running, but especially in the latter part of the season it was recognized as one of the strongest city quintets. The team played a City League game every Wednesday night, and was sometimes handicapped by the fact that a regular conference game was played each Tuesday night. The team won four of its eight City League games. Notwithstanding its small number of victories, the Alliance team was known as the hardest fighting quintet in the conference. Although it lacked the sheer ability and skill that has characterized Alliance teams for the past few years, it was more feared over the valley than the championship 1923 squad. Winning or losing, the team gave everything that was in it every minute of the game, and while it did not retain tin championship it more than upheld the reputation that “Alliance always fights.” SECOND TEAM  LiteraryAnnual Staff EDITOR l CHIEF FIRST ASSOCI VIE EDITOR SECOND ASSOCIATE EDITOR BUSINESS MANAGER D ERTISING manager JOKE EDITOR RT EDITOR J.

S. was the framed 1 • i t iflcate stating that the Spud received third class ranking at the Central Interscolastic Press association, when a National contest was held for high school papers In Madison. Wis cousin. Decern t er 1, 1923. The importance and value of this third class ranking can be letter understood when It Is learned that only four other Nebraska High School papers were even ranked, and that all of these were published in larger schools than A. 11. S. Another gift Is the framed history of the Spud from the time it was begun as a magazine. issued occasionally, to the present time when it is a four-column newspaper issued weekly without fail or delay from the first week of school till the last. Early in the year tin Spud presented a yell book to each A. II. S. student free of charge. These hooks contained all the favorite yells and songs and several new ones which were used during the football aud basketball seasons. Perhaps tin most attractive gift to tile school is th - oak proofreading table which was built in the Manual Training Shop at the expense of the Spud. PAPER BOOSTS ALL ACTIVITIES Conforming to its editorial policy of supporting and encouraging worthy A. II. S. activities and originat lug benefits to the school, tile Spud did all in Its 1 owcr to encourage such tilings as tiie Glee Clubs. Athletic teams. Class Activities and tin Annual. A special “Annual" supplement was issued when subscriptions were being secured and it did much to increase the list. Editorial comment inspired class donations to the Annual fund. Resides tills tile Spud started tlie choosing of Six Seniors for the “A. II. S. Hail of Fame" and tlie selecting of official all conference basketball teams. Ry means of car-teams the Spud brought editorial ideas to many students who could not otherwise have been reached. William Bber-I.v portrayed editorial thoughts with ids pen as faitlifully as did tin-editor in chief with Ids. Tlie staff of tin- 23-'24 Spud devoted sja-e Hal attention to the making of tin- paper throughout tin- year. Such authorities as the Central Intcrscholastie Press Association prais ed the consistently good make up of tlie paper. In tin- All Western Makeup Contest, eon ducted among high school papers of the ltoeky Mountain Region, tin- Spud received lion oralde mention. B1 SI NESS STAFF IS EFFECTIVE Tile business staff of tin- 1923-24 Spud, of which Mark Anderson was manager, and Kenneth Ranks advertising manager, was without doubt tlie most efficient that ever served Che Spud. Tile very basis of the paper’s success. Its financial condition, was di rcctly due to tills part of the Staff. Any newspaper is to , a great extent depend : cut on tlie revenue rc-1 reived from advertisements to defray Its expenses, and from tills it follows that the quality of a paper is in a large measure determined by tlie mini Is-r of. or rather the revenue from, its ads. This year tlie Spud paid Its expenses en-11 rely from ad money. At tlie In-ginning of the year it donated nearly $200.00. tlie whole of its subscription money , to tlie annual fund. Starting with absolute ly no capital and wltn a few of last years bills to pay tlie Spud lias kept itself out of debt. From the very first is sue to the very las? every Dili was paid promptly, and for tin-first time in years the Spud left no deficit. The staff put its work oil a better business basis when it Issued eon tracts to advertisers. Nearly $1,000 was hand led by the staff without one mixtip or any trouble and every bill was collected. The Exchange editor exchanged papers at regular intervals with sixty schools. This year the subscription list included not only students and teachers of the Junior and Senior high schools Du t townspeople and several former A II. S. students now living else where. 'rills gave tile subscription manager a mailing list of ten names.Due to the inter-class debate tournament, interest in debate was Keener this year than ever before. January 21 was the date set for the first round of the tournament, the Seniors being matched against the Juniors and Freshmen against the Sophomores. The question was, “Resolved that the United States should further restrict immigration.” In this contest the Seniors and Sophomores won with unanimous decisions. Two days later tin final round was held and the Sophomores became inter-class champions, by a two to one decision, thus winning the silver loving cup offered by Principal F. C. Prince. Two members of last year’s team: Y'erne Laing 24 and Wauneta Robinson 25 with J. Cantlin 24 as a capable third member were chosen as regular first team members. A second team was also chosen, consisting of Nellie Sturgeon 26 (alternate of the debating team of 1923) Alice Prettyman 26 and Kenneth Ranks 25. Miss Bernice Miller, History instructor and sponsor of the class of 25 was again with the debaters as a very efficient coach. The first inter-school debate was scheduled with Harrison. Nebraska, February 27. at Harrison. Alliance upheld the negative of “Resolved that the United Stater should further restrict immigration.” The Harrison team members were Wanda Davis, Margaret Kmery and Helen Marking. Coach, Miss VanMetre. Harrison won by a two io one decision. The judges were Rev. R. C. Newland, Crawford, Nebraska; Professor Bright, of (’hadron State Normal and Supt. Kngleman of Crawford. Since the rule of the Northwest Debating Association is “The victor goes on. the vanquished is eliminated.” Alliance debated but once, but we are not discouraged lor we have resolved to do better next year. GoThe Alphian and Delphian Literary Societies were organized for the purpose of having student programs. Every student is required to be in at least one program each year. Officers for the respective societies were elected from the Student Body. The Presidents from the Senior class. First Vice Presidents from the Junior class. Second ice Presidents from the Sophomore class and Secretaries from the Freshman class. Three sponsors for each society were appointed from the faculty. Then the student body was divided into two groups, and as new students enter they are assigned to one or the other society. Membership continues until graduation.DELPHIAN OFFICERS 'I he officers for the Alphian society are: President.

This organization might be considered a condensed form of the “Rotary Boys Band, as every member in it is also a member of the Rotary Band. Howard Cogswell, who in the absence of the regular leader, has often led the Rotary Band, is proving himself a very efficient director. Only one member will be lost by graduation, so prospects are good for plenty of pep next year. Rick-a-chick-a-boom, Rick-a-chick-a-boom Rick-a-chick-a Rick-a-chick-a Boom, Boom, Boom! Alliance!

Nebraska E Alliance, “the Queen City of the Plains.” is located on the broad fertile plains at the foot of the sandhills. It is situated 360 miles northwest of Lincoln and 238 miles northeast of Denver, and has an altitude of 3,968 feet. The town was named because it was to be a junction of the railroad. The name was suggested by J. N. Paul, a civil engineer. The first settlement was made in 1887 where the fair grounds are now located, and was called Broncho after Broncho Lake. Later the name was changed to Grand Lake. The first building was a sod house and the rest rough board shanties. The Lincoln Land Co., in connection with the Burlington Railroad Co., laid out a part of the present site in 1888 and named it Alliance, and in a short time Grand Lake disappeared Some of the houses were moved from Grand Lake. Alliance was incorpora i ed as a village in 1888 In 1893 the population had increased so much that it was advanced to a city of the second class. The first mayor of Alliance was Frank W. Smith • The first general merchandise store was owned by Fred Enderly. It w'a a tent put up over 2x4V 0 0 0 When the county seat was changed from Hem-ingford to Alliance, the old court house was moved here and used until 1914 when the present building was erected. The first newspaper wa. the “Alliance Times.” It had been moved from Non-pa riel to Grand Lake and thence to Alliance in 1887 0 MRS. C. E.

Smith, when he amputated the arm of Albert Nelson, who had shot himself while hunting. The doctor having no suitable surgical instruments used a common 8aw. The man lived and it was a successful operation. The first school was taught by Mrs. J. H. Conover in a tent in Grand Lake. Then for two years school was held in two store buildings in Alii ance. In 1890 a five-room brick building was erected. Until 1894 only the first eight grades were taught, then a High School was organized. Among the early teachers were Miss Lulu Mann, Miss Hood and Miss Adams. The first superintendent of Schools was Mr. Van Tassel Graves. At the present time Alliance has five splendid public school buildings and a large parochial school, St. Agnes Academy. “Can’t you assume a little more pleasing expression of countenance?” asked the photographer. “Y-Yes sir,” hesitatingly answered Robert Laing. “Wait a minute and I’ll take off these new shoes.” Doc.
