SENIOR EDITORIAL E., the members of the Class of lgl l, having about com- ? pleted our high school career, wish before leaving to ,A I Y., A ' 1 ' 4 in express our gratefulness to those wno have made this ,T Qvp 45 most instructive and enjoyable course possible and also to those merchants who have made possible the publish- ing of this boolc, "The Spiderwebf' Our appreciation first extends to our parents and every taxpayer in our school district, who by their votes and generosity have made possible the maintenance of the Alma Public Schools and who have stood behind the School Board in every way, broadening our courses and beautifying our grounds. Alma High School is second to none in the state. It has been on the University list for many years and will remain there as long, at least, as the present School Board has the management of its affairs. Every member of the board is a live citizen and is able to see that progressive- ness is the only policy. People in the vicinity of Alma have come to appreciate the high standing of its schools and have sent their children to them, until at present, although with an enlarged assembly room, many students are forced to sit in other rooms. This growth will make it necessary to have a new High School building in the near future. We are grateful to the School Board for our most worthy superintendent, F. E.. Ellsworth, and the able staff of teachers under him, who realize the fact that they were in school once and try to do the right thing. The pleasant hours which we have spent with our instructors, although at times seemingly long and dull, will never be forgotten by a single member of the Class of l9ll. We do not appear mournful and certainly act far from grieved in the class rooms, but we all regret the time when we cannot meet together with them. Miss Smith and Messrs. Ward and Currier by their able coaching have built up clean and strong athletics and have placed Alma High on the map in that department. The merchants and professional men of Alma deserve our most hearty thanks. They have stood behind athletics and entertainments but they have done more than that for us-they made possible the publishing of this book by paying a liberal price for advertising spaces in the back of the copy. Without this money we could not have made it a financial success and therefore it would never have appeared. Last, but not least, we are grateful to that assemblage lcnown as the Class of l9l2, who for three years have tried to rival us and thereby furnished us with a great deal of amusement. Of course, they will not admit but that they were our equals, but let us simply remind them of basket ball and baseball games between the classes in which we "put it all over them," and again when our lone representative, Marjorie Delavan, put five Junior men down to defeat in the oratorical contest. Their social functions were a joke beside those which the Seniors gave, but we are looking for our friends to outdo themselves in the annual Junior banquet. We, the members of the Class of t9lt, appreciate the kindness of those who have made our school life so instructive and enjoyable, and aside from expressing it in words, we will endeavor in the future to do as much for others.

Who would hire the excellent school teachers? And who would Wx f6,r 'X 9 - 'e-i5'Q i .U Vi V, .Z 5. give their aid to everything that would benefit the school? The present School Board is composed of some of the prominent men of Alma: E. L. Smith, P, M. Smith, D. L. Johnson, C. H. Rhodes and Francis King, all of whom have had experience in the business world, and know how to run a school in a business-like manner. These are the men who have kept Superintendent 'Ellsworth at the head of affairs for six years past and for at least three years to come. These are the men who have secured the coaches for our win- ning athletic teams. It is these men also who have managed our school as economically as possible and have at the same time improved the conditions of the grounds, planted shrubbery, and kept things in such fine shape that at present we have two of the best kept grounds and school houses of any of the smaller cities of the state. The course of study prescribed by the board has also been of such an excellent nature that the school has been on the university list for some time and will surely continue to be under the present management. One of the best things that has been done by the board is the establishing of a manual training department which is super- vised by one of the best teachers of this line in the state, and in such a manner that not even any of the larger cities, have a department that can surpass ours. The school savings bank has also been established by the present board. It has been in operation for about a year and has been pronounced by men who know as the best in Michi- gan. Among the many things which the school board will be considering before long is the erection of a new school building. This will soon become a necessity, as the people living in this section of the state, attracted by the efficiency of the Alma l-ligh School are sending their children here in preference to other schools, until now the school is greatly overcrowded, and it will probably not be long before the citizens of Alma will have another school building, which they can look upon with pride, all brought about by the efficiency and business-like man- agement of the board. The Alma School, under the present management, can not help but prosper and the citizens of Alma can rely on the pres- ent school board, to keep our school, second to none in the State. C. C.

X I very largely upon the teachers. A good faculty combined with a capable superintendent will invariably make a well regulated and orderly high school at least so- it has worked out in Alma. We have always had good teachers, but never have we been more fortunate than we have this year. We challenge any high school to produce a more competent and harmonious faculty than the one which now reigns supreme in Alma l-ligh. Mr. Ellsworth, the Superintendent of our schools, is so well known that any eulogy at our hands is unnecessary. Suf- fice it to say that he has always had the hearty co-operation of both teachers and pupils in all his undertakings and that he has met with deserved success. For the last two years we have had with us as principal, Mr. Ward, a graduate of Mt. Pleasant Normal and at present a Junior in the University of Chicago. Mr, Ward is an able teacher and an enthusiastic football coach. ln the literary department Miss Smith is the guiding power. She graduated from Alma College with a Ph.B. degree and has had four years, experience in teaching. Miss Smith's in- terest and enthusiasm are contagious and it was due largely to her efforts that the Clirls' Literary Society was organized. Next to the literary department comes that of languages with Miss Gould at its head. After graduating from the Uni- versity of Michigan, Miss Gould came to Alma and the fact that she has been with us for three years is proof of her ability. Miss Potter, the teacher of Science, is a graduate of Ypsi- lanti. She is at the same time a good teacher and a popular chaperon. This year, increased attendance made necessary the addi- tion of a new teacher and Miss Cameron a graduate of Mt. Pleasant Normal with three years' experience, joined us. She has charge of the l-listory department and already her popu- larity is well established. Mr. Currier is the teacher of Mathematics. l-le graduat- ed from Ypsilanti, and in behalf of baseball and basket ball we want to thank Ypsilanti. Mr. Currier is a good teacher as ,well as a good coach. Miss l-learn has charge of music and drawing, and the fact that we have a chorus of over a hundred voices, two glee clubs and a l-ligh School orchestra shows that she is far from idle. In such a brief survey we cannot do justice to any subject, much less to one as deep as this. But we, as Seniors, know what it means to have an efficient teaching force and it is our earnest wish that all our successors may have as good a faculty as ours. 1 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY AIL! All hail the class of 191 I I 5 Wlio would ever think that only four short gi years ago we entered upon the arduous duties of high school life! And yet we were quite like 'ggmxv other Freshmen classes though perhaps a little more ambitious. It was our boys who first started basket ball in the High School, and it was our class that was nearly exterminated by an upset into the ditch, while enjoying one of our many sleigh-rides. Luckily we all sur- vived to enter upon our Sophomore year, a period of dorment activity that might be likened to the coccoon stage of the but- terfly. We studied, observed, and drew conclusions so that when the next mile-stone was reached and we became Juniors we were well prepared to sustain the duties of our position. Who can forget the time we robbed the mighty Seniors of their cherished banner and marched the ringleader blindfolded down the road? But they entertained us royally nevertheless and we returned the compliment in like manner so the hatchet was se- curely buried. In due course of time we emerged from the raw state into finished and dignified Seniors. The task that then awaited us might well have daunted braver hearts than oursg to sustain our reputation and to outdo everything that any other class ever had done. To say that we have accomplished this would be boast- ing and far be it from the class of I9I I to indulge in thatg but to say that we have tried is only fair. In numbers we exceed the limit hitherto reached by any Senior class. In scholarship we rank among the highest. In ingenuity we stand supreme. We gave the first Senior fair ever held in Alma I-Iigh School and it was a remarkable success. Along athletic and literary lines we have done our part in raising the standard of the school. There have been representatives from the Senior Class on every team, both athletic and debating. Five of the seven men on the I9I I basket ball team were Seniors and in baseball and foot-ball we have been equally active. To tell of our social achievements would take too long and might create the impression that we are conceited. So we will leave the greater part unsaid and in closing we ask you, oh worthy Alumni, and you, oh Seniors yet to be, to think kindly of the class of I9l I. f .

He might also have observed the re- signed expression upon the faces of these students, tor they well knew the prejudice often entertained against freshmeng but hardly had they become accustomed to their new environment before the Junior class, detecting evidences of un- usual good taste in them, sent a delegation to ask their opinion as to what class colors they should choose. The Seniors soon presented themselves, asking for information in regard to the selection of their class pin. In fact, during the entire first year, all their spare time was occupied giving advice to the upper classes. The Sophomores, to be sure, did not con- sult them concerning matters of class interest, but rather as individuals in regard to studies. The second year was in many ways similar to the first, except that more of their time was taken up giving counsel. The idea of an organization was scorned by the members of this class the first two years, as they well knew from their daily intercourse that all of the members could never agree on any one thing. But at the beginning of the Junior year, Paul Kress suggested a class organization, and was promptly rebuked by being elected president. However, now being started in the right direction, some social gathering was suggested. After considerable discussion, it was decided that they should go on a sleigh-ride to the St. Louis skating rink, and from there to the home of Grace DuBois. The plan was successfully carried out, and after leaving the rinlc they started on their journey for the DuBois home. On arrival, a supper was served, after which a few toasts were sleepily responded to, and the idea that "Brevity was the soul of wit" seemed quite prevalent, ' The next event of class importance was held one Saturday night at the home of Queen Strong. Following this was a party at Mabel Wynne's. At this time a supper was served of somewhere between Fifteen and nineteen courses. .After the guests had recovered a little from the repast, they listened to a few vocal solos by Edward Bahlke, which were greatly appreciated. Next came the memorable party at john Gatfney's, at which Calvin Race made his bow to society, and although rather timid with the girls, he ,made quite an agreeable impression. Then came the crowning event of the year, when the boys, realizing that they were rather indebted to the girls, decided to give them a banquet, which was to be held at the Kress home. The arrangements went along smoothly and on the appointed evening nearly the whole class was present. After a live-course supper, the real business of the occasion, namely, the toasts, began- These were in striking contract to those at the previous parties, nearly all being model discourses on the alloled subjects. Perhaps an exception to this was the talk of Milton Jackson, who quite forgot his subject in unwinding a fairy tale. Edward Bahlke talked about half an hour on "Cnr Pastf' Mabel Wynne de- voted some time in exploiting the sweetness of her disposition. Along towards the last came the talk, however, which all waited for in breath- less suspense. This was the toast given by Hugh Bartley, who told how grand it was to have a class conscience, and further stated that "a good name is rather to be chosen than great richesf, After a few other toasts the members of the class left for home, again to resume uninterrupted their duties in school. "This for the past, of the future no man can tell." JUNIOR CLASS, 1911 SOPHUMORE CLASS HISTORY' ti--..-I R HE year H599 found Grace I-laner, Winnie if Cooper, Helen Willard, Reginald ixicciinton, I Alonzo Lutz, and others attending kindergarten. Many of their comrades have been lost, but oth- ers are seen in their places. After mastering those difficult subjects they passed on and on till in the spring of l909 they with thirty-seven others were pre- sented with eighth grade diplomas. E ln the fall they were joined by many rural students with whom they began their high school career. That first year was very successful. Reg lVlcClinton learned how to keep his face straight, and Dick Rockwell, the midget, developed his wits and starred as the man that didn't know, Don Smith and Clif- ford Cummings had commenced their household furnitureg Paul Clark, Crib Barry, and Dean Cowdry learned to play foot-ballg Crib became our baseball star and Dean our all-round athlete. So far Deanis industry has been such that a "Fair Grecian Goddess" bestowed upon him the name of "Fatty Grub." Edna Campbell took up domestic science and made a specialty of "Johnny Cake." This year we were joined by the Gossets, and the Cash which we received Cbeing appreciated by allj, was given the most prominent position in the class, that of president. Reginald lVlcClinton is now learning to pronounce Latin words. l-le is becoming quite an expert at it. We are an exceptional class. The girls in basket ball Cle- feated even those wise and learned Seniors. And, wonder of wonders, some of the Sophomore boys are becoming very pop- ular among the Senior and Junior girlsn Also some of the Junior boys will tellyou that the company of at least some of the Sophomore girls is a thing greatly to be desired. By the time we reach the year 1913, we will be the most irrportant and the best class Alma l-ligh has ever produced. HELEN WILLARD, ESTHER DUNHAM. SW Hiott SCHOOL ORCHESTRA S A HE School Orchestra, one of the many prosperous or- E, Hi ganizations of Alma High,-is to be complimented on their bw extreme success and good management. 4 Through the un- tiring efforts of Miss Cora Hearn and under the able direction of Prof. Schroeder, the orchestra at once :lx proved their musical ability. Although only in its first year, much can be expected of the musicians in the future, as most of the members remain in school and under the same cli- rection should make a good stand among the leading High School musical organizations of the slate. F. D. D., 'll. SOPHONIORE CLASS, 1911 1 HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1914 EVER did a class enter the Alma High School with as 6 N much ambition as did the Freshman Class of the present X' school year. tuna.: In numbers we are three score, and in school spirit there never was anything like it. When we entered the ninth grade we were anxious lo do something original- So after a few hasty brain- raclfing consultations, we decided to have a class organization. As a result of our first meeting we found in the chair lVlerritt Miller, the widely-known electrician, ably assisted by our poetic vice-president, Frank Bittner, sitting at the desk, keeping track of our weighty decisions, was Robert Notestein, while our country lassie, lVlary Nlallory, looked after the cash. Another very important thing that happened at this first meeting was our choice of class colors. This, of course, was a very difficult task, but since we are all true Americans we decided to be true blue and pure white. To say that this class is industrious is stating it very mildly, but we are not all work, because we believe that "All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy." One line evening, the twenty-ninth of November, found us loaded on a sleigh started for Porterheld's, although most of the trip was made on foot. We were given a fine time, as is usually the case where Ruth is concerned. With Miss Smith and Miss Hearn to watch over us, our parents were not uneasy because we were home so late. The second social even was our acceptance of Ethel lVliller's kind invitation to an oyster supper. This took a great deal of skillful plan- ning on the part of our financier, but after much difficulty we started. This being on Friday, the thirteenth of January, of course it rained, and that also added to the pleasure, The Freshman Class certainly thought the Millers great entertainers- As we didn't return until the wee small hours of the morning, our fathers and mothers also thought we must have had a grand time. The lastf but by far not the least, was our skating party on January twentieth. Seven o'clock found all on the ice having the best of times, until a mishap occurred which proved very disastrous to one of our girls. We then went to Marion l-lood's, where she proved to be a very agree- able hostess. Since this last party we have been very busy with our school work and have had very little time for pleasure. But there is one other thing that ought to be spoken of-that is our charter members-Robert Notestein, Frank Bittner, Russell Gaffney, Ruth Hooper, Ruth Dunham and Helen and Nlarie Doane, who have gone through the nine grades together. We have kept increasing in number and hope when we finish the High School to leave a record behind us saying we were the largest class, and put out the best Senior Annual, and were all around the best class that ever went through the High. "Now ths 'is the history of our class, Forever let it stanclg And when you want this lively bunch, They'll surely be on hand." J P at 527-1 -'fvff ,Q ,335 11-'fl f"- l FRESHMEN CLASS, 1911 1 LAMBDA SIGMA Z 1 I, EVER before in the history of the Alma l-ligh School have the girls had a literary kw a society. This year such a society, which A is an important factor in student life as it affords opportunities for literary and social development, was organized, and by the com- mon consent of its members called the Hl..ambda Sigma." The primary object of this society is of course "to develop an appreciation and love for good literature among its members, and to increase their respect for and power to use correct English." With this in view on the first and third Tuesdays of every school month meetings are held, alternately devoted to de- bates and literary subjects. The work has been very successful in many respects, and in spite of the fact that this is the first attempt of the girls to form such an organization, great progress has been made. But the society does not believe in the maxim, "All work and no play," for it has its social as Well as literary aspect. ln fact, already many good times of every description have been enjoyed among the mem- bers themselves. The members of the society are sure that although this is a new field of work, a good beginning has been madeg and they trust that those who are left to carry on the work will go forward with a greater success. And so the "Lambda Sigma," composed of its thirty- five members, feels that the society will be in a good condition for the work of next year, and look gladly on the past and hopefully expectant of the future. M. A.,'II. i4??23?"f1 "' -' ' N the a t th ee or four ears Alma I-I' h 5 - P S Y y lg l School has developed rapidly in athletics. r g Before that time athletics in the school l were not ranked very high, and lack of interest made winning teams impossible. Four years ago basket ball was first organized in the l-ligh Schoolg and now winning teams in this sport are developed every year, owing to good coaching by Mr. Currier, and the great interest taken in it. ln football and baseball, the same thing has been true. This being due to the good coaching of both Ward and Currier, and the great interest in these sports by the student body. Cne of the organizations that is greatly responsible for the increase of interest in athletics is the Athletic Association, which has put athletics directly in the hands of the student body, and they feel a greater interest in it, since they have something to do with the management of it. With at least one of the present coaches back and under the 'supervision of Superintendent Ellsworth, the athletic teams of the future will certainly be as successful as those of the past few years. FGOTBALL A -Q 9-.L I-IE football season of l9l0 was very successful. Many men signified their intentions of trying for the team, and Y at a very early date a squad of about twenty-hve husky 4 Q men appeared on the field dressed in football togs. Most li blfl ' of the interest shown by the men was brought about by Mr. Ward, our efficient coach, who started early hnding candidates and getting them to pledge their help in Q. building up a good machine. Great enthusiasm was shown by both candi- dates and the school over football prospects. A very good team had been put out the year before, and with most of the old men back, and many more new ones, an excellent team seemed quite apparent- A very stiff but very efficient schedule was arranged by Manager Kress, in- cluding many of the best teams of the state. With this facing 'the team, under the leadership of their excellent captain, "Gila" Barry, and the di- rection of Mr. Ward, they went to work with a vim. Everyone began early to take an interest in the team, and large crowds greeted the players with a profusion of yells and banners at every home game, many at- tending even the out-of-town games. The veterans of last year's squad, who made up a good part of this year's team, were Gargett, Kress, Wood, Spinney, Dunham, Barry fcaptainj, P. Clark and Austin. The new men who made good were Robinson, Raleigh, Fishbeck, I-lulse, Vought, and Nl. Jackson. Of the whole schedule of ten games played, six were vic- tories, three tie games with O-0 scores, and one game lost. Certainly with such a record, playing with the best teams in the state, no little praise can be given the men and Coach Ward. The team's uroasteru is as follows: "Gila" Barry, captain of the team, played only part of the year, but his exceptionally fast work at end was the feature of all the games in which he played. He was a good ground gainer and a sure tackler. Gargett, at full back, played a very good game in that position, his wonderful line plunging and also his great defensive playing, were grea! factors in many of the victories- Kress and Jackson, as half backs, played great games, both could be depended upon to stop line smashes and also to make good runs when needed. Kress also did the punting for the team and was especially good in this line. I Wood, at quarter, was the star of the team, his long runs and his sfeady playing were characteristic of all the games that he played. Fishbeck and Austin, at ends, played very steady games, and their good playing could be depended upon to siop a great many end runs. They could also be depended upon to make good runs when given the chance. Spinney and Clarke played the tackle positions. Both played great games. Clarke was exceptionally good on defensive work, his great tackles being the feature of every game. Spinney was also good in this line. Hulse, Vought and Bahlke, at guard, played consistent games, and although they had no chance to make any brilliant plays, it was their steady playing that won many games. Vought also showed up good when playing end or half back, and in one game played very good at full back. Dunham and Robinson played many fine games at center. Dunham. during the hrst of the season, played a very consistent game, his specialty being recovering fumbled balls. Robinson, during the la'ter part of the season, played a brilliant game, his very accurate passing being the cause of many good plays. I-le also played a good defensive game. Cowdery and Smith, the subs., were there with the goods when called upon. SCHEDULE Score. A. O.

Certainly no one has been more enthusiastic over their welfare and the success of basket ball than he. Likewise, the etliciencies of the different managers that we have had, and their ability to schedule games with the best teams of the state, has added much to its success. Of course, the real. success of the game is more directly due to the players themselves, the fellows who have gotten out and worked and made possible such good teams. These together with the enthusiasm and encouragement given it by the entire student body and faculty, has been the means primarily of placing Alma I-Iigh School on the so-called basket ball map. I The team that represented our school this year was by far the best ever developed. With every man returned from last year's team, and Currier on deck to "show 'emi' how, this, as can be seen, was no acci- dent. With such good prospects in view every effort was put forward by our excellent manager, lVlr. Robinson, to schedule games with the largest schools and best teams in the state- The success of his efforts are well shown by the schedule as given below. At the beginning of the season many new candidates were on the floor and bid fair to "beat out" some of the old men, but of course inexperience proved their downfall, and the old men held their berths. l-lowever, theirs will be the teams of future years. Speaking personally of the members of this year's squad, it would be well to commence with their hard-working captain, Hike" Montigel. An experienced guard and conservative basket ball player, he made an ex- cellent captain. He has held down the position of guard for three years and was a very consistent player. Spinney and Austin, likewise playing guard positions, were veterans and certainly upheld their repu-V tations, starring in many games. Kress and Hood played the center positions. They, too, were old men and played their positions in a commendable manner, outjumping many taller men who played against has ad- Qs'-,Q gg EldVa1'lCC- them, and securing many needed baskets. Wood and Fishbeck occupied the forward positions the entire season and 'a large number of baskets gained were due to their efforts, they "pulling" off many good plays. Thesquad as a whole played together excellently and "teamwork" was always their watchword, no man on the team trying for individual glory, but all co-operating to the best advantage of the whole squad. The schedule is as follows: A. 0' Jan. 5-Grand Rapids at Grand Rapids: .. .... I8 36 jan. l3-Ithaca at Alma ............. .... 6 5 I5 vlan. 30-Alma College Second Team .... .... 2 2 8 Jan. 27-Mt.

I9 23 GIRLS' BASKET BALL ASKET BALL with the girls is comparatively a newly 5, 'E taken-up line of athletics in our High School, and of C ffi-Q QC course we have not advanced to such an extent in it as .. we have in other lines. However, we have girls' basket 3 ball and this Winter a team was organized and coached by Miss Smith that proved only too well that the i H reputation of this branch of sport is rapidly advancing, and in another season will be among the leading and best liked pastimes of the girls of Alma High School. Mostly practice and inter-class games were played this year, but the ability and spirit that they manifested in these was sufficient proof that we have the material for stellar work in girls' basket ball. The names of the players and the positions they held were as follows: Adams, forwardg Soper, forward, Willard fcaptainj, centerg Gos- sett, guardg Day, side center: Brainard, sub. guardg l-laner, guard. BASKETBALL TEAM, 1911 f B AAS E ' NDER the excellent supervision of Coach lib Currier, the baseball team began practice ',. sg, i . . Q X W-F, . very early in the season. and was in good ' 1 , . . ,gs shape for tne first game with St. Louis l-ligh. This game was won after ll innings of good and poor playing, which is generally characteristic of the early games. The second game was also with St. Louisg and although all the regular team was not there, a good game was played. The game was lost by the close score of 3-2. The next game was with the old rivals, Ithaca, and the team played such excellent ball that they easily won by a score 64. The game with lVlt. Pleasant was some- what of a disappointment, it being an oft day for most of the men, and being handicapped by playing on strange grounds they lost bya score of IZ-l. Bay City Eastern played next at Alma, and although several men were at a track meet that day, the team gave Bay City a hard game and lost only by 5-7. Mt. Pleasant High next played their second game with A-Ima. Alma would have easily won the game had it not been called in the sixth inning on account of rain, with the score l-l. The last game that we can record was with Ithaca at Ithaca. The team played the best ball of any time during the season, and it was only through a little baseball luck and good playing by Ithaca that compelled them to ac- cept the small end of the score. Ithaca Won this game in twelve innings with the score 2-l. The record: A. 0. April l8-St. Louis at Alma ...... ..... 5 4 April 22-St. Louis at St. Louis.. .....

With three big meets already hnished, a Q close approximation of the strength of the team and the P Q2-. 3 events we are strongest in can be had. Much of the sport, and who has faithfully trained the men and kept them in good success attained is due lVlr. Ward, our track coach, who has greatly aided in arousing interest in this line of condition. With nearly every member of last yearis track team re- turned, Kress again reinstated, and many new men out, an excellent team has been developed. First, to consider the team itself, and the events in which each indi- vidual is strongest- Ctulick is track manager andg to say the least, no better choice could have been made. A more persistent, harder working man is not on our track team. He is a good half and quarter miler. Cooper, Gulick, lVliller and Beverly are our distance runners, and of the first it can be said without bragging that he has no peer in any of the schools of the state. Ciulick is also a very good miter. lVliller and Beverly are good and with a couple of years' experience will make ex- cellent men in these events. Kress, Hood, Race, lVl. Jackson, H.Jackson, Barry and Vought are our sprinters and a better lot of ufast ones" could not have been collected together. Hood, lVl. Jackson, and H. Jackson are our liurdle men and have done excellent work- ln held events we are like- wise very strong. Wood, lVlcClinton, Kress, Ciargett, Vought and lVlcln- tyre are our weightmen and are pointwinners, while Kress, Hood, Spinney, Wood, H. Jackson and IVI. Jackson take care of the jumps and vaults in a very commendable manner. Hood is track captain. The first track meet was a dual meet with Bay City Eastern and resulted in a walkaway for Alma, we scoring 76 points to their 46. Kress and Cooper starred in this meet. The next meet of decided interest was the State lnterscholastic held at Lansing, May l3. Because of the good showing at this meet last year with but two men entered, it was decided to send down a larger team this year. Accordingly eight of our best men were sent, in- cluding the relay team. They were Race, Hood, lVl. Jackson, Kress, Crelay teamj, H. Jackson, Wood, Cooper, Gulick. Of course we intended to make a good showing but did not expect to win the meet. However, when the time of the end of the meet arrived, it was found that Alma was tie with Detroit Central for first place with 26M points. Of course our joy at the team's excellent success was inexpressible. However, our luck, if luck it may be called, was suddenly changed, for upon the toss of a coin the big T. B. Rayl cup, which we had wished to bring back with us, was won by the Detroit Central team for the first six months, but after that we will have it. The next and last track meet we can record here was the second big state track meet at Ann Arbor. This was a little different meet than the other in that schools from without the state could compete. Although, being slightly handicapped for funds with which to send a team down, we managed by the excellent help of the business men to send Five. Coop- er, Kress, H. Jackson, Wood and Hood were the lucky ones. Widm the winning of the other meet at Lansing, it was thought that perhaps we could repeat, but because of the teams outside of the state we came out of the fray well satisfied with fourth place and nine well-earned points. Even at this we had Detroit Central well beaten, who tied us at Lansing, they getting but eighth place. Then should not we, as worthy members of Alma High School, be well proud of our track team, and our track coach, Mr. Ward, who has so ably aided? Of course we expect to win the rest of our track meets by large margins. LAMBDA SIGMA THE ALMA HIGH SCHOOL DEBATING CLUB K4 .4 -we fm sf A Q-2 bs ' if . ai i mw HE present Debating Club of Alma High School was organized about three years ago. lts or- ganization was affected chiefly through the ef- forts of Superintendent Ellsworth, who has taken a great interest in it, and has helped es- tablish it in its present flourishing condition. The purpose of the society is to give practice in public speaking and debating, and to help those who are weak along these lines. The great benefit derived from the Club is shown by the improvement in speaking and debating of its members, some of whom were natural speakers, others who were not, but in every case great improvement has been shown. The society consists of twenty-four young men of the high school, who are active members of the club, and the gentle- men teachers of the high school, who are honorary members. Une of the honorary members acts as a critic, and one of the other two is chosen as one of the judges of the debates. The usual method of debating is by dividing the club into two divisions of twelve members each, and each division is sub-divided into four teams. The four teams of the one side debate with four respective teams of the other side, in four different debates. The side losing the greater number of de- bates furnishes a "feed" to the winning side. After this ufeedu toasts are responded to by different members of the club, one of the honorary members acting as toastmaster. This not only makes an enjoyable evening but also benefits the members in social speaking. The society is then again divided and the same proceedings carried out in another series of debates. In this way each member debates at least three times a year be- sides deriving the benefit of the other debates. Besides the weekly debates in the club there is usually one public debate each year, either among the members of the club or with the debating team of sopxe other high school. This year two debates have been arranged with Greenville, one in that city and the other in Alma, to take place on the same night. These debates promise to be very interesting and ex- citing, as both schools are desirous of winning. The social part of the society is not entirely neglected, and each year the members of the club give a banquet ,totheir young lady friends, which always proves to be "the event of the school year."' It is becoming more successful every year, and is enjoyed by everyone attending it. This banquet usually closes the debating season, as during the spring the members have other work to take up their attention. But all the mem- bers agree that the winter evenings could not be spent more profitably and enjoyably than in "The Alma High School De- bating Clubf' CQ C., fl l. SY 2 N. , gf' r X . . . ' . -v.

The building is of red brick and stands out majestically in the center of a beautiful school yard. Clean walks lead up to it and upon each side a well-kept row of shrubs beautify the passage to the school. Around the building are several artistic beds of shrubs, evenly trimmed and always free from weeds, which bloom in all their splendor towards the close of the school year. Farther from the school, along the front walk and river bank are lilac bushes and dwarf trees which form a beautiful hedge. All of the beds and shrubbery stand out more neatly and clearly be- cause the grassy slopes are always closely trimmed. This handsome yard is kept in its almost perfect condition by our genial janitor, the friend of every student, Mr. Wells. On the Warm spring days the busy hum of the lawn- mower or the steady, clip, clip of his trimming knives may be heard. Inside the building is spotlessly clean, the floors well oiled, the blackboards black, and the dust out of the corners as well as oft the desks. If a little fun is going on Mr. Wells is ready to lend a helping hand, although not to an extent that would endanger his position. If a party is being given at the school he is there with his business air but also his pleasant smile, and will go from the top to the bottom of the building as many times as necessary with only "all right, come along." And afterwards he is willing to help clean things up. To say the least, Mr. Wells is greatly appreciated by every student of Alma High School, and every Senior in the coming years will feel something lacking when they cannot see our "YensH' happy smile.
