I lie Spud Staff and Senior Class. have put forth our best effort to make this Senior Issue of The Spud take the place of the Annual which we were unable to publish this year. We have tried to show what the class of '25 has done for the High School, what it has done for itself, and what the High School has done for it. Vie have attempted to picture high school life, with its toil and pleasure. a it really exist in Alliance High School. We have attempted to the best of our ability to make this final issue of The Spud for the vear of '21 and '25. a real reminder of the happy school-davs spent in A. H. S. THE SPUD STAKE.DEDICATION To liss Grace Spacht, who has guided the class of 25 through its most difficult and most successful year of high school and who has never failed to help them, we dedicate this Senior Issue of the Spud. SUPERINTENDENT H. R. Partridge PRINCIPAL M. R. ColsonThe Spid 5 Historg of the Senior Class of 1925 In September, 1921. ninety-two Freshmen filed into the study hall as quietly as ninety-two people, ranging from three to six feet tall, can walk. We were all very much afraid of the much-talkcd-of Mr. Prince, so we all sat there with our mouths open when he came in the front door. fter the fright wore off we decided i: was about time to organize so we called a clas meeting and elected the following officers: Sponsor, Mr. Redd; president. Robert Laing; vice president, Stella Moore: secretary and treasurer. Paul Thompson: athletic representative, Edna Mae Miller: Spud reporter. William Eberly. W e had our first party early in the fall in the gymnasium. A pic nic lunch was served and a good time reported by all. Very little was done in athletics, but training was received by some who were promising men for the next football and basketball squads. Some of these were Robert Laing, Paul Thompson, Howard Rust, and Tom W ykoff. In the declamatory contest we made a good showing and Margaret anderlas. in the humorous department, went to the school finals. In scholarship we ranked next to the Juniors, and were mighty proud of it. A picnic at Broncho lake’ the last of May closed a very successful year for the class. The next vear we were Sophomores, numbering seventy-seven. Many of our classinembers had dropped out, but others joined us and we looked w ith disdain upon under classmen. We soon had our first class meeting and elected as officers the following: Sponsor. Miss Miller: president, Stella Moore: vice president. Oliver McPherson: secretary and treasurer, Verne Laing: athletic representative, W illiam Eberly, Spud representa-live . W illiam Zieg. We were the first class to have a party this year, which was a party for the Alliance and Crawford football men. Tables were set for one hundred and twenty-five, this was one of the- most successful parties ever given. In athletics we did much better having five men on the regular football squad. They were: Ralph Garvin, Rob Laing. Howard Rust. Paul Thompson and Tom Wykoff. These bovs helped Alliance win the Western Nebraska Championship. In basketball we gave the Seniors a hard fight for the inter-class banner and when the first team was organized, Rob Laing and Paul Thompson were on it. Of the eight men in the track team three were Sophomores, Ralph Garvin, cap-lain. Tom W ykoff and W illiam Eberly. In debate we were represented by W auneta Robinson and erne Laing. In declamatory we had seven entrants. We also had six members on the Spud staff. Not only in these former matters did we excel, but also in scholarship, the Sophomores heading the honor roll nearly every time. The next party we had was a breakfast at Broncho lake. After breakfast we were idl gi j n a ride in the motorboat by our classmate Herbert Miller. To dose our vear successfully we entertained the Senior class at a lawn party which was a decided success, due to the faithfulness of our sponsor. Miss Miller. In 1921 we were the first Junior class to enter the new high school. This year we numbered sixtv-one. This year we lost two by marriage and six joined the Senior class to graduate in three years. Some new members from other schools also en-i oiled. At our first class meeting we elected Miss Miller, sponsor; Stella Moore, president; Oliver McPherson, vice president: Mabel Sturgeon, secretary and treasurer; W illiam Zieg. Spud representative; and Geraldine Brennaman. athletic representative. This vear the Juniors wished to boost football and also aid their treasury so they sold football badges. As our part in aiding the Annual we sold homemade candy at all activities of the high school except football. “Pep” club was organized to boost all school activities. (Continued on page IB)6 I he Spud Class Poem Really a class of doers. Future, present and past. The stories of its great deeds For many ages will last. It’s roll is tilled with notables; All will gain glory and fame Statesmen, poets and actors Journalists and builders we claim. They will all be factors In fulfilling the class’ name. Oliver is our leading genius A president, and classmate tine. Dorothy is our editor The writer of printed line. William, a man of talent Great things in this world will do. Ruth, though capable, is modest. But accomplishments will be hers. too. Russell, with unbounded energy Will win, through storm and strife. Florence, with paeid dignity. Will make a success of life. Glen shall be our statesman And in affairs of the nation will deal. Marie shall a nurse become And the wounds of injured will heal. These are only a few of our members Whose future we have foretold. But the others will all be prosperous And the future of the world will mold. Already they have done much Throughout their years of school. Taking their part in activities. And upholding the Golden Rule. Their fellows on the Honor Roll And in the Hall of Fame. In each Literary doing And every athletic game. They have upheld the standards For which all classes strive. Truly a group of leaders— "The Class or Twenty-Five.” Donald Dotson. Class Song First Chorus: As we leave our old High forever And soon will forgotten be As we struggle on in this world of hope Shall not one memory flee. Now the time has come for leaving Jn our dear old Senior High, We must leave its walls for once and all And prepare to say goodbye. Second Chorus: When we have drifted afar from Alliance, And the friends of the old A. H. S. When we’re boldted down with the cares of our own. And we’re parted from all the rest. When our thoughts wander back to school days. And the hours of enjoyment and zest. The soft spot of old will warm every cold In a heart that will not forget. Tune Then Maybe I Will Forget.”The Spud 7 Senior Jlctiuities Senior activities ilii- year have been well attended both by the Seniors and ! y a spirit of loyalty and class patriotism. “Ihe Whole lown s lalking," Senior class play, was given May 5, and was met by the approval of a full house. Matinee and evening performances of the plav were given and at the evening presentation over a dozen people were turned away, with not even standing room available.

Bright and early that morning the cars, furnished by the students, started for Ghadron State Park. Picnic lunches were eaten at the park after various experiences and the Seniors again saw the lights of Alliance that night. The other picnic held by the Senior class was at the ranch home of Kenneth Banks. ’2.A, Friday, May 1. This class had been guests when they were Juniors and thoroughly enjoyed both trips. The generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Banks in literally turning over their home to the young people for their enjoyment, will never lie forgotten. All Seniors were ordered to .save the night of May 28. They were to lie kept in the dark about the happenings of this night until they arrived. Programs for Baccalaureate. Recognition Day.

Me is clothed in a black mask and robe and upon request lie seals himself beside the entrance and begins this story: “The first. I see." says he. and easts an experienced eye caxeward. "is your class president. Oliver McPherson. Oliver, with a dear friend of his. will settle down on the farm to raise cabbage and tomatoes. He will teach school as a side line. Next is Stella Moore. Stella will go to Paris, where she will become a dancing teacher and will lie noted for her ‘cavorts’ and ‘swishes.’ Glen Worley will carry her hags and demonstrate the steps. Ah! Dorothy McCali appears, the queen of Roumania. And to our surprise we see Lee Trabert come out of the mist with a cow beneath one arm and a milk pail beneath the other, close behind him is Nellc Sturgeon nndOpalZink my what a trio these make. Nelle is to be a dressmaker and Opal will land in Fort Coilins where she and a last years’ graduate will live happily ever after. A gay life we see for Margaret anderlas and F.ditli View-hirter as they travel with the Chase-Lister shows. Grayte Fink will be a snake charmer. Mabel Sturgeon’s future is assured. On her ninety-seventh birthday Mrs. Coolidge will present her with a golden rolling pin. Eoline Sweet will tour the world debating on ‘Give Women a Chance.' Now a gust of w ind and out of the dark comes a burst of enthusiasm. It is Harold Sprague. He is president of the Nebraska Hug House Association. Next we see Hazel Benjamin, a music teacher. Bella Simpson, and Pearle Murray are her helpers. Look! Beyond the cloud is a man. Several women are following him. As he gets closer we see John Richardson, the lady-killing, heartbreaking Sheik. Florence Lotspeich will become Mrs. Baker. Flossv Baker the famous pianist. Homer McFarland ejects his profile from a curtain in a circus tent for the public to throw halls at. A voice is heard in the dark. On second thought it is a sing-er. Oh! What a singer, when the girl appears it is Jewell Price. Dorothy Whitnack then comes forth, a I ni. teacher from Nebraska. "Donald Hawkins is a changed man. He is to be a Geologist. His calling i' bones and specimens. Rex Smith will be a roller skater, famous for his tumbles and humps. A famous orator now appears upon the scene. It is Frank Mounts, otherwise known as Honkv. A shout is heard. I'liree cowboys ride out of the mist, furiouslv whirling their ropes above their heads. They are Donald Corbin. Charles Ewing and Hubert Vdams. Through the mist the prophet pictures a large sign. It is the letter B. Boon. Brenna-man. Boodry and Burrows Beauty Shoppe La Vogue, Paris. We enter the shoppe and see Inez Boon, Geraldine Brennaman, Dorothy Boodrv and Opal Burrows on the job curling hair. Two men enter carrying traveling bags. They are peddlers for Henrv Ford. On second glance we recognize them to be John Bartels and Kenneth Banks. Can vou imagine Alice Prettvman a stenographer in Dr. Jerrv Silvernail’s office at Scot Is-bluff? Well the wizard seems sure of this. William Ebcrly is seen swinging a brush, painting sky-scrapers. We then see six young ladies in the follies of 1950. they are. F.lna Wait. Eloise Furman. Wauneta Robinson, Della Peterson, Esther Neilson and Kldore Mooney. From here the wizard lakes us to France. “There on two of the altars of the Kheims Cathedral stand Arthur Hann and Clifford Gregory. As we enter we see a little fellow dancing about playing a flute as though he were a fairy. It is Edward Herman. W illiam Bioknell will be an Olympic Champion for the broadest grin of all nations. William Zieg will be a second Cappy I,oo for l,er Brothers shows. Oh! Wo see Mildred Newman and Margaret licit . Thev are to be associate presidents of the Heinz Pork 4. Beans factory.

And here comes James Hilton, Jimmie the silent cop. Bertha Sheldon and Marjorie Salisbury are again school leach-rrs. living near Alliance. Opportunity awaits them. Mildred Stolt is now a skilled artist—at throwing a rolling pin. Now we see her and now we don't, digging about the palms and ferns in south Hawaii. Dorothy Mote and Mildred Best are residents (Continued on page 19»The Spud 13 Declamatory Florence Lotspeich ami illiain Zieg starred for the Seniors in Dee I amatory thi year. Not Iicing content with winning first in district in Oratorical. W illiam went to Gothenburg and was awarded first in tin state. I his is an honor which has not come to Alliance for a number of years, but the class of 25 has every reason in the world to feel proud of William. Although Florence did not gel first in Dramatic we are also proud of her. It is as she herself put it when called upon in ('Impel to give her version of the contest she did her best but some one else s best was better than hers so they won. Florence was awarded fifth place in the slate. Mrs. W. A. LaMoti coached Florence and Mrs. II. R. Partridge coached William. Other members of the Senior class entered in the preliminary contest this year were: Oratorical. Kenneth Banks. Arthur Hann; Dramatic. Alice Prettyman. F.oline Sweet, and Ruth Hutchinson; Humorous. Margaret Vanderlas. Commercial Alliance won second place in the District Commercial contest this vear. In this the Seniors were well represented. Dorothy McCall won first place in Novice typewriting. She averaged 19.8 words a minute. Due to the lack of funds. Alliance did not send Commercial contestants to the state meet. Kdith Mewhirter won first in spelling. All the Alliance contestants who were Seniors were Margaret anderlas. Alice Prettyman. Florence Lotspeich. Jewell Price. Miss (dace Spacht. former graduate of Alliance high school, is in charge of the Commercial department and was elected vice president of the organization for next ear. Three IJear Graduates Five "iris in the class of 25 have the distinction and honor of comple 'i»g high school in three years. They are Opal Burrows, Alice Prettyman, Nelle Sturgeon. Janice ills and Opal ink. Four others who have also completed their courses in less than four years are Donald Corbin, (diaries Fwing. William Fberlv and Kdith Falls. The rest of the class seem to have had enough to do to get their required thirty-two credits in four years hut the Seniors are certainly proud of these eight. All of these people have had their names on the honor roll more than once and are classed as very good students. Six of the eight have gone here ail during their high school days, while Donald Corbin transferred this year from Crawford, and Kdith Falls comes to 25 from Nebraska City. Excellent Scholarship Six Seniors of this year have earned Kxcallent Scholarship honors by maintaining an average of 92 per cent or above for three years.

Since football comes first in the year. we will discuss the fool ha 11 players from the Class of ’25. William Kberly was captain, making his second year in the game. He played end and was a player who could be depended upon. He played a gritty game and performed his part well. ‘‘Hill" participates in the game because of bis interest and loyalty and A. H. S. is mighty proud of his loyalty. Edward Herman, guard, is also a sec- : ond year man. “Jakie" is a steady and I faithful player who always does his | part fully when it comes to blocking • the ether man and tearing a hole j through the opponent’s line. An in- I jury early in the season deprived Jakie from “showing his stuff’’ in some of the early games. Frank j Mounts, guard, played his first year : this season. A green man to begin with, by constant playing and fighting Frank won a place on the team j Oliver McPherson, fullback, played • his first year for Alliance in his Jun- j ior year. Mac is over age and was de- j prived from playing on the team during the season of 1924. The one year I that he did play. M:ic awakened fear in the hearts of his opponents W’hen called on for a line plunge, he a’-ways left a swirling eddy of men in his wake. W’hen he tackled them, they “stayed tackled.” In basketball, W’illiam Eberly was the only Senior who mad the team. His services were lost to the team by graduation at mid-semester. As in other athletics. Bill proved to be a capable anil loyal player and played because he liked the game. In track and field. no Senior made the first team.
