ITI-I the passing of each year a new Annual it comes to take its place as a small but important part of the school we love. It is our sincere desire that this Annual, the particular con- tribution of the Class of 1925, may fill its own particular niche as a chronicler of the life and activities of the school. There are- those who look with disdain upon innovations of any kind. The Annual this year represents radical changes both in name and con- tent. Our departures from the well trodden path have been made with the hope of producing a more attractive book. How well we may have succeeded it is not ours to judge. For our short- comings we can only beg your humble pardon. Keeping these thoughts in mind be ye pleased to survey the 1925 Horseshoe. -Zi77L71.l'3,f7 zzz .. 6 ..

A 4 J ff 52. 0 Jflltowm History of the Mid-Year Class In September 1921 a group of about a hundred boys and girls en- tered the portals of A. ll. S. for the first time. They were Mid-year Freshmen, and at first felt their posi- tion greatly, but this feeling soon gave place to one of humility. You see, they had already had one half-year of Freshman work in Cen- tral Grammar, and they had ex- pected to seem more than ordinary Freshmen when they reached High School. Instead, they were as green as the rest, and did all the foolish things that Freslnnen are apt to do, and will do. Then with the beginning of the second semester, they realized that they were Sophomores! Then the same proud feeling came over them again -for weren't they Sopho- mores, while the rest of the students who sought learning in the afternoon session, were only Freshmen? This feeling of bliss and pride lasted until June, when they were allowed to re- cuperate for a few months after their strenuous first year in High Sehool. The next September they came back, slightly older, slightly wiser, and slightly sadder tha11 the year be- fore. They were back to work and to learn, since they had spent so much time the year before in becom- ing used to High School work. They worked hard, making good marks on the whole. Some of the girls won Girls' League honor pins for having high averages. Again February marked a promo- tion for them. They carried on their Junior work with the same steady power they had showed in their Sophomore work. In May the Junior class invited them to their picnic. Quite a number attended, and had a jolly good time. In a few days they received their final grades, and school closed for the summer. Back they came in the fall,eagerly looking forward to the time when they would be Seniors. Their work was rather hard, finishing the Junior subjects in the hope of becoming Seniors. Finally, after hard exams, checking up of credits, and a lot of fussing, most of them did become Seniors. The long end in view was reached at last ! Two members of the 2415 class made basketball teamsg Parthenia Hudnall on the girls' team, and Thomas Goodfellow on the boys'. The Seniors invited the Mid- years to their social affairs. A good many went to all the socials, the Senior picnic and the Junior picnic. Nearly all the Mid-years went to the Junior picnic, and the time that they had that day will always be a pleas- ant memory. After a happy summer spent in camping, traveling, or in various positions, they came back to finish the last lap of the big race. The semester went quickly. Wlitiii the Annual staff was selected, the office of editor was given to Charles Faris. The position of associate editor was given to Alger Geary, and many other positions on the staff were given to other Mid-years. During January the Senior elec- tions caused quite a lot of excite- ment. This was due to the fact that the Mid-years proposed to elect one of their members to the presidency. Consequently, they nominated Tho111- as Goodfellow. The whole class stood solid and placed their candidate among the leaders. Because of the lack of a majority in the voting, there were three elections. Thomas Goodfellow held out through the sec- ond, when he received the third larg- est number of votes. The Mid-year class closed its work with a banquet. This banquet was the first recognized Mid-year social event, and was a glorious success. Z-2.74uL 1127 ,.53... .JALZUUJM After the class formally closed its work, George Rigg, Lester Mc- Cracken, VValter Kearney, and Jos- eph Knepper, left school to take positions. The rest have remained in the school taking post-graduate work. The Seniors have invited them to take part in the social activ- ities, an invitation they have enthu- siastically accepted. On they stay until June, when the sheep-skin will at last be obtained. ,BETTY FAIR. History of the For the past four years a company of the youth of Altoona and vicinity, known the Class of 1925, has been banded together. They have strug- gled long toward the goal they have new gloriously reached, and without fear or favor they endeavor to place before you the history of the Class of 1925. Freshman Year In the year 1921, at that season when Mother Nature was changing her fresh summer garments for the more gaudy hues of fall, there ap- peared along the paths which led to our abode of knowledge, a body which, contrary to the color of the season, was exceedingly fresh and green. The great body advanced with halting step, glancing timidly in the direction of a dignified Senior or shrinking breathlessly as a group of sophisticated Sophomores passed, hilarious over their new and exalted position, It is hardly necessary to say that this green and shrinking group was made up of Freshmen, not unusually fresh, but surely green in the manners and customs of the school. On entering the building they wandered aimlessly about the halls, looking upon everything with open-eyed astonishment. Finally they were rounded into the auditorium by the teachers. After a rather short but a very amazing conference with the Dean, they were directed to re- port the next day and were dis- missed. Thus ended the first day. Upon returning to school the fol- lowing day they were assigned to classes, directed to recitation rooms, Senior Class and given text-books. So began the High School career, a life replete with joys and with sorrows, but a life with associations dear now, and ever more dear, we believe, in retro- speet. The lf'reshman year was practic- ally uneventful, the days arrived with unerring and provoking regu- larity and passed, some more, some less, swiftly into oblivion, until the end of the term arrived and every- one exerted himself to pass the finals, and thus enter happily upon the long vacation. Sophomore Year Early one September morning in 1922, a certain group of people were awakened with the announcement: 'fTime to get up. School begins. You're a Sophomore now." They one and all tumbled out on this particu- lar morning without the usual amount of persuasion, and off they hiked valiantly for school. No longer did they cower and shrink. No long- er were their efforts to be rewarded with indifference. They were high and mighty Sophomores. Vklith a will they attacked their old algebra, the languages, and con- sidered with high hopes the new studies. Through the whole year of a rath- er dull term the Sophomores worked hard, and their efforts bade fair to eclipse all records. Then as the sum- mer vacation came round, with two years of their course behind them, they secretly adopted higher ambi- tions and aspirations. v Y, 23.7511711747 - - ...54... Jyqllooam Junior Year After three months ol rest and pleasure, in 1923 the class returned as Juniors to their post ot duty for a hard year's work. A great change had swept over them during vaca- tiong from a group of backward kids they had developed into a sociable lot of young men and women. The first 'few days, of course, were spent in chatting, and in general in becoming better acquainted with each other. But the days wore on, and chemistry ceased to be a fathom- less mystery and the laboratory no lllllglll' held the terrors of a powder magazine, as plane geometry ap- peared more plain, and the work of' harvesting points continued, then, profiting by the experience of oth- ers, the Juniors "made hay while the sun shone". Their activities were of a studious rather than a social nature, and 11ot until the last of May did the lively spirits of the class begin to stir. ,As a result, early in June, the Juniors had a picnic at Bland Park and a glorified picnic it turned out to be, everyone making merry in the danc- ing, in contests, a11d in eating. Late that evening the jolly crowd separ- ated again for vacation. Senior Year In 1924 school opened unusually early. Everything was in a bustle. Naturally the Seniors took time to greet each other and to swap a few yarns, but they were too busy to de- velop that head-expansion usually attributed to persons in their posi- tion. Having disposed of the i'll'PSll11l6ll in the new Junior lligh Sehool and thereby having resumed the 8 :30 till 2:30 day, the first part of the 'term passed quickly in hard work and study. The Christmas vacation over, the Seniors returned to school, keyed to the highest pitch of expectancy, for in a short time they would organize and elect their officers. Finally one morning they were called to the auditorium. Dr. Robb opened the meeting and announced that nomina- tions were in order for the different offices. Every Senior remembers, and will long remember that eleetion- algebraieally expressed it amounts to 3VQX + 4 -1- LUXQX - 4..'. John Hess was elected President, Christine Klesius, Viee President, Helen Gibbons, Secretary, and James flrove, Treasurer. Nor in the midst of all the social flurry did the Seniors forget to work. With a grim determination they strove manfully to strengthen their grasp on the coveted diplomas. May passed with its finals and a' that, with its festivities and a' that, bringing in its wake the day of days, the Commencement of the Class of 1925, and ai that. As they look baek over the four years of joys and sor- rows, of trials and tribulations, they can say that theirs was a race well run. VVhat they have done in the past can no longer be held against them. Wlhat they will do in the future lies wholly with themselves. They worked to the last, and never lost sight of their ideals and stand- ards. Then one fine day in June, in the year of our llord one thousand nine hundred and twenty-five, the Ulass of l925 graduated and scat- tered out into the world, where Hman to man, the world o'er, they'll brothers be for a' that". MIRIA M L. XYILLO UGHRY. . -741,7 '92 T -55- Altoona Who's Who in 1925 Our President Hip, hip, hoorayl Three cheers for Johnny! He's an all-round good sport and some sheik. In a football game, Johnny always saw the open- ing some other fellow missed, and pretty soon little Johnny filled the hole. At basketball he's a mighty good guard, and when he makes a speech he carries the house. lle be- lieves in doing well whatever he at- tempts. Just now he has the job of piloting a few hundred dignified Seniors their perilous way to grad- uation. VVe're sure he'll make our functions a success-his cheerful smile and good-natured banter are always appropriate and enlivening and his good sense will weather the gales. And about his girl? Some say she's a Titian beauty, the others don 't know. Anyhow we're waiting patiently to see her. Helen Gibbons Who desn't know Helen? She's a commercial student, and she's popu- lar among the girls and boys. Shels never intrusive, but always welcome. Like Cinderella, she comes and is gone again. 'There's nothing unusual about Hel en, except that she just has so many good qualities rolled up in her heart that she fits everywhere. She's just sweet and courteous and ololiging and lovable. VVe're glad shels our Secretary. James Grove Mr. Robb said we wanted an ex- ceptionally honest fellow for the job of holding the money. Vlle picked Jimmie. lle couldn't even tell his teacher the tiniest iib without blush- ing - that speaks for itself. But all teasing aside - Jimmie's a fine chap, likeable, even if he is liable to falter and stutter if you hurry him. He's there when it comes to dancing. Here's to our Jinnnie. May his days land our financesj live and prosper. Chris Klesius Slam, bang, "Hello everybody!" Chris is here, and a great little old Chris she is. A leader in girls' ath- letics, and Miss Lentz's right hand man in the Girls' League, Chris sure- ly is kept busy just doing things. Cheerful, good-natured, Chris is a princess among us women. She strives honestly and accomplishes big things in studies as well as ath- letic and social activities. She's cap- tain of the girls' basketball team- that's what her fellow-athletes think of her, she's Secretary of the Girls' League - that's what we girls think of her. Charles Faris 'l'here's a tall, blond, good-natured chap who reams these halls-I've often wondered who he is, have you 'l He 's a good student, and has quite a perceptible leaning toward geome- try. llc can give a satisfactory proof always-satisfactory to teacher or class, by the latter I mean he can extend a recitation to the last signal and save some unlucky fellow with- out detracting from his own credit. Maybe you've guessed- lim talking about Charles Faris, Editor of our Annual. You ought to see him con- duct a meeting. It serves several purposes -business and social. But Charles is a mighty capable fellow, broad-shouldered enough to bear his burden of importance with modesty. Ylle look for big things from him. Scott Geesey One of our associate editors, the coppery-haired young man better known as the Flaming Youth, is a likeable chap, entertaining, and a bit eeeentrie. llets a sort of poet, too. Wlrites ambling verse, you know, about fair ladies, the sun, the vain mud-turtles, cabbages, and kings and various other creations of Nature and man. And girls! He's taking 6 4f',J7'fQ7 72. ZZ b -.-.66..... -ffqltoona X.. dancing lessons. Perhaps you've seen him execute the latest steps. He's tall and thin, and quite a stude, and best of all, there 's a generous heart under his coat -just ask a favor of him and youlll see.. Billy Green You all know this versatile young chap, Billy Green? Of course! Vllhy ask? He's skilled as a musician, cheer leader, dancer, and he's the Editor-in-chief of our Mountain Echo. He knows how to work and how to play without wearing a long face at a party or cutting capers when there's work to be done. He has the proper attitude at the proper time. He 's a friend to everybody. Did you ever hear him knock on anyone or anything around school? Did he ever fail to do his bit? He's got real school spirit. and the class of '25 is mighty proud of Billy, for he's the sort of chap that docs big things. He gives cheerfully of all that's in him, and he doesn't expect anything in return. Let's get his spirit and make old A. H. S. proud of us! Jim Orr Jim is tall and thin and has dark hair and serious black eyes-until he gets amused. Then watch 'em shine. He's a quiet likeable chap, and mighty efficient as business man- ager. Courteous and gentlemanly, hels liked by the fair ones as well as by the fellows. .Ask any of the folks Who know him, they'll tell you Jim is a good sport. He doesn't say much but he thinks a lot. Some day he's going to act upon the dictates of his brain, and his thinking will eome in handy. Jim's of the steady, determined kind that does big things. Watch his dust! Mary McKelvey Mary, as president of the Girls' League, has on her hands a big ex- ecutive job which she dispatches with promptness and ability. The better you know her, the better you 1 like her. She ls a good sport, a good student, and a good actress. If you don't remember "Daddy Long Legs", drop in to see the Tuesday plays some week. You'll see. If you don't know Mary, get acquainted. Her heart's in her Work. She's some girl, this Mary! Clayton Brenneman You've seen the blond six-footer with the glasses and the individual walk. That's Claytl He's a good student when he wants to be, al- though Latin seems to be his Vllater- loo, as he frankly admits. But he's made our literary department what it wasn't and is kept busy collecting material and writing stories under the pressure of blank columns. And he's no slaeker when it comes to soc- ial activities. Ylle hear he's an ex- pert decorator, and a pretty good dancer. And he's not a mean sport when it comes to entertaining the ladies. lle's got plenty of friends, and is respected by his classmates but he's not goody-goody. And oh, what a vocabulary he has! Betty Fair Our "Lady Fair" of the Mid-year class is Betty. lille all love her. She's a peppy young miss, and as sincere a friend as one could wish. Her in- variable 'tRo-o-a-dl" at the lock- er, and Hllello everybody" and "VVhere,s Mart?" are welcome, familiar, and never failing sounds. ller array of adjectives is marvelous. She believes in doing things well, and puts her heart and soul into her tasks. Lawrence Stitt Larry, the tall silent one, towers some six feet. llc is a member of the orchestra and very reliable with his little clarinet. Naturally unas- suming, Larry doesn't make a great noise, but when he tried out for the Junior Debate last year, people woke up to his ability. He hasn't any girl yet - he 's too bashful. Larry repre- sents honor and Senior dignity. U7 fly i A X., History of the Junior Class Hear ye, hear ye, all and sundry! Listen to us, the class of '26, while we set forth the tale of our achieve- ments and our failures, our joys and our sorrows, our hopes and our reali- zationsl On a beautiful afternoon in the September of nineteen hundred and twenty-two, about seven hundred boys and girls tripped gaily to the Altoona flligh Sehool- back of them eight years of somewhat confined sehool life, before them f the future with its bigger opportunities, wider aeqnaintanees, and greater happiness than before. We were one of those unfortunate classes who had to spend their first. year in High School after the two- session day had been instituted. Nat- urally we missed the Contact with our austere elders-a contact said to be a. boon to 1'll'0Sh1110ll. But in spite of that loss we got settled after a few weeks of wandering around and getting lost. Our first year we spent mainly in trying to learn what the faculty with some difficulty tried to hammer into our young and inexperienced heads, and in buying football, basketball, baseball, and traek tickets, for we are ardent supporters of our Alina Mater in her athletics. That was the year in which we all turned out to see our football team beat Johnstown. on a eold November day. This feat has been accomplished but onee in our high sehool eareer, and we are trusting that it will be repeated next year. VVe shall never forget that day, it was one day when all high sehool turned out, eheered and rejoiced to- gether. Nothing else worthy of inen- tion here happened that year, exeept other vietories in basketball, base- ball, and track, whieh we supported very loyally, and the oeeasional an- nouneeinent that we would have chapel, the advent of which was the cause of great rejoicing, for that meant we'd miss a period. 'Thus passed one year of our high sehool eareer. Our second year started rather differently, for instead of being ver- dant little lflreslnnen we had at- tained the dignity of Sophoniores. Likewise and furthermore on aeeount of our new eondition we were en- abled to attend sehool with ithe other upper elassinen, in the morn- ing. XVe sat in the heights in ehapel, and for onee were able to look down upon our dignified elders. This year passed almost as uneventfully as our iirst year had, except for the faet that we had established more of a reputation for ourselves, seholastie- ally, athletieally, and socially. VVe must also admit that some of our number had the privilege of rnateh- ing wits with lllr. llare in the priv- acy of a little oliiee that has beeorne very familiar to us. Of course, we fully realize that we might not have had this rare opportunity had it not been for the elevating iniiuenee of our beloved elders. Days, however, passed into weeks, the weeks into months, and finally we attained that much-hoped-for title -we were Jun- iors. In this position we learned more tricks of the trade, too numerous to be mentioned here. Vile learned too, that "all work and no play niakes Jack a dull boy", and so, believing in it as we did, we naturally put it in praetiee, mueh to the annoyanee of our parents. We have shown our prowess more than ever in athleties by contribut- ing some exeellent inaterial to both the football and basketball teams. Throughout this year we have been very sueeessful when we haven't fail ed, very joyful when not sorrow- ful, and very hopeful even when we hoped against hope. , , iii-41114 'ZZ -53- JALMOJJLG Upon the completion of this, our Junior year, we shall at last enter the Senior class. lt will be the cul- mination of three years of hard work. This ends our tale. We have tried to tell it to you as aeeurately as pos-- as we deemed necessary. We trust you will take it for better or worse. VVe know that the history ot our past will color our future, but we are nevertheless looking stead- fastly and fearlcssly into that future, ready for what it holds for ns. No matter what it holds, we pledge to thee, our Alma Mater, the best that's in us. H We will always sing thy praises, XYork for thy success, llail to noble Alma Mater, Ilail to A. II. S." Who's Who in '26 Hitt! Bang! Who's coming? Oh, sure enough, you might know! 1t's just Mary llenderson, our star bas- ketball player. The Junior Ulass is well represent- ed on this year's Girls' Basketball Team with Beatrice Ayers, Mary llenderson, lflleanore Steckman, Mil- dred Miller, Aunda Slack and Elea- nor Vtlilson. We wonit be a bit surprised to hear our prima donna, Gladys Feist, being proclaimed as a second Galli- Uurei in the near future. We are well represented too, when it comes to forceful debaters. Among the most noted are: Virginia Leader, Caroline ltlekels, Paul Smith and Jos- eph Findley, all of whom took part in the Mid-year Junior Debates. And listen, my friends, and you will hear Mac VVilson's lusty voice booming out in Congress some of these days. Marion Wicker has played a prom- inent part on the athletic committee this year. Every time there are tick- ets to be sold for any of the games Marion is on the job. Regina Meek has played quite an active part in the work of the Girls' lieague this year. Charles Shingler, Raymond Koelle and John Shugarts have made names tor themselves on the football field this year. VVC won't be a bit sur- prised to see their names on the All- American some day. Raymond lloffman, lliarry Franks, liynn Focht and John Decker eer- tainly did a lot to put A. ll. S. on the map in basketball. We expect lots of them next year. llilda Rodkey and llelen Pearce are two of our dramatic stars. 'l'hey added grace to the annual Girls' League play. Reba-Johnson is another outstand- ing dramatic star, a second Mitzi. Norman Campbell, llarold Stover, lloward Schuler and Paul Smith are some of the Juniors who help to soothe our savage breasts with their music. Harriet lloenstine is Vice Presi- dent ot the Girls' League and we all agree she has been a good one. We'd like to see the day when For- delia Uottey isn't pulling oft some monkey business or llelen Faust isn it up to some mischief. Helen, by the way, is Yin-e President of the Enter- tainment tlroup of the Girls' League. History of the In September, 1923, about eight hundred and titty verdant souls en- tered theAltoona lligh School. Those were the days in which the upper elassmen went to sehool in the morn- Sophomore Class , ings and the Freshmen in the after- noon. it After we had been assigned to our classes we found our new lite just suddenly and easily begun. XVe had y.u,,dIgi ' ,G9.... ' ww . JAZZOMWX- to learn the mysteries of algebra and ,lforeign languages. Vile often thought how nice it would be to be a Senior, revered by the Freshmen, and known to everyone. Vile had several brief and always welcome reliefs from the school rou- tine. Then the Mid-year examina- tions came, and we anxiously waited to know who would pass. Having survived this ordeal we settled our- selves down to another half-year's toil. Those who were in the Mid-year classes were now elevated to the dig- nity of Sophomores, and how the rest wished they too had arrived. At last in June loomed the final examinations, with vacation just over the fence. Those who failed the tests went back in September for an- other half year 's sojourn in the Freshman class. Those who were successful finally became Sopho- mores. Now the Sophomore year began but alas and alas, there were no Freshmen to show our superiority to 5 they are in the Junior High and we are still the lowest class in the Senior High School. That, however, does not depress us, we know we shall be stately Seniors some day in the not distant future. Cnc of our greatest days was Sep- tember 12, 1924, Defense Day, when, in a. grand parade, all the boys of the High School turned out well, and we were there, too, "Great 116314165 gentlemen - marching along l ' ' The school party held on Decem- ber 19 for the boys of the A. H. S. was a great success and the Sopho- mores had the best time. Our great hope is that all of us will be Juniors next year in Sep- tember. GUNNAR BEoKMAN. Who's Who in '27 Louise Bard and Mildred Miller were our two very snappy basketball players. With two more years to play these girls ought to do a lot for A. H. S. Anne McGuire, Thella Slick, Vir- ginia Dunn, Nellie McCauley and Helen Frisch are also promising can- didates to hold up our basketball fame. Don't take anything Thella or Virginia say seriously for they are great jokers. On the Reserves the Brinkley Twins and Joe Wilsoii were three very useful scorers. They helped to make the five Reserve games vie- tories. Any time you meet Frank House- holder ask him how to compare a Latin adjective. The budding artist of our class is Elizabetli Keagy. Perhaps you have seen some of the portraits "by Keagyn on yellow sheets of algebra paper. Howard Burd is the Sophomore member of the Athletic Committee and a valuable addition to the orchestra.. The dramatic talent of the class showed forth on the night of the school party when Charles Miller and Louis Waltoii acted in "Why the Chimes Rang". Marian Howard made a splendid aristocratic society girl in the W3ShlHgt0117S Birthday play. Gus Notopoulos is our famous his- tory student. When he grows a little taller we hope to see him out for basketball. Jean McKerihan is a member of the Mountain Echo Staff and popu- lar with her classmates. 'T' ""' "f'Q""'T' 'i"l'I'f'.""

JA The Radio lub On a gloomy day in March, 1924, certain members ot that species ot bacteria known as radio bugs inaug- urated a radio club under the aus- pices of the Science Department. A eommittee was appointed to draw up a constitution, and a membership committee to entice other near-radio bugs into the net ot the aneient or- der. lt was unanimously agreed to hold club meetings on Friday even- ings. " The present li-adio Club inherited equipment for a radio set from a. radio club of tornier years. Al- though the materials were generous- ly stamped with the trademarks of Father Time, they were still service- able. Hur present radio set has been built to give the elub experimenta- tion in the various sidelines of radio. .I-int after the club had put the radio set in a iinished state, no aerial was to be had. "The paths ot glory l.ead to the grave", murmurs Thomas Gray. Nevertheless the path of radio leads one into many plaees not down, but up, and on occasions when the club members ascended to the roof they were not seeking glory, but an aerial support. A sup- port was loeated by dint of much eticort, and iinally an aerial grace- tully swayed in the breeze from the flagpole to a corner ot the root and the club members went on an orgy of tuning for distant stations. This debaueh eontinued for many weeks until old Boreas put an end to it by ripping the aerial down. Repeated replacements failed to hold it. ln addition to holding the aerial seeure, it was hard to keep down the static electricity because ot the height of the aerial. Often the eleetrieity was seen to jump a gap of a half ineh. At last, in desperation an indoor aer- ial was deeided on. Atter installing the aerial a test was made and the new aerial worked with great sue- eess. During the installation of-the indoor aerial the club members maar- the aequaintanee ot dear old Min- erva, the Goddess of Wisdom, who used to guard the threshold ot this sanctuary of knowledge, to say noth- ing ot' sundry eobwebs that existed before Noah. Among the notable exploits under- taken by the Radio Club was the re- eeption of President t.Toolidge's in- augural address. The school as- sembled with the expectant hope of hearing the address. The loudspeak- er was switched on and a few squawks and squeals were received whieh sounded like the Jugo-Slavian National Anthem. Net result f one disgusted audience and 'one down- hearted club. Cause - excessive sta- tic which drowned out all broad- easts. The aim of the Radio Club is to promote interest in Radio, and to be ot service. Club members have shown many amateur fans how to tune their sets to create no disturb- ance. Radio sets have been built for people, who state that the construe- tion of the sets has been entirely scientific and satisfactory. The noble post of president. was handed to Har- old Uaum, the weighty office of viee- president to Joseph Buser, thc time- honored place ot' secretary to the taeile pen of Frank Basler, and Mr. Jones added the title of treasurer to his name.

This organ is the medium through which students learn what has happened and what is to happen. Above all, it is the mirror into which the student body may look and be either ashamed or proud. 'That is why it should be the resolve of every fair- minded, school-spirited student to contribute whatever he can of his best effort, and to lend the best of his abilities, to the success of the school paper. A Our own .7lI0lHll'llt7l- Echo has had a remarkably successful term. The Staff was recruited as usual from green timber, so to speak, and with a Green editor launched its new ship on a sea of the usual trials and tribu- lations of a beginner. Hy the time the initial edition had come off the press the crew, however, had learned to steer a straighter course, and when the second edition was about to go to press the efficient business manager informed the editor that they had a clear course before them. In this new Echo the space formerly occupied by advertisements was filled with other material. Through an enterprising move arrangements had been made to have the paper appear bi-monthly throughout the year without any advertisements. Since then the four pages have been filled chock full of school news, poetry, stories, athletics, radio do- ings and jokes. The Moimtoin Echo owes a great debt to our own Mr. Nhlilliams, faculty business manager, and to Mr. Hare who has kept our finances straight. The editor also wishes to extend his sincere thanks to eachiand every member of the staff and to every contributor, whether his contribution. was printed or not, for their loyal and until-ing services in making the success of the paper. Finally, let it be known that without the helpful guidance and careful censorship of Miss Mulock the .lllozuzfuin Echo could not possi- bly have been the success it has been in the past term. This season, be it known, has in- cluded many a new experience for both editor and staff. If you are one of those persons who have, even for one minute, envied the editor of a school publication, listen if you will, to a little inside dope on the subject. True, the Editor it is who has his name in large letters at the head of the staff. It is he who presides at the staff meetings with such a domi- neering mien. But it is he who gets the knocks, too. Did you ever hear the criticisms, the complaints, and the slams, that go buoyantly about? VVhat is then the general consensus of opinion?m"l"ire the editor." First there is that pitiful appeal- f'Material l" Then the careful plan- ning of the departments-just so there is something for each depart- ment, it doesn't matter much what it is. A little 'period of idleness comes in which the Editor collects his wits for the writing of some deep editor- ial. But alas, when he sees it in print, can this be the same aggrega- tion of the various parts of speech that he so laboriously compiled? Vllhy yes, to be sure, merely a few cuts have been made by the censor. Then comes the last minute rush. Gangway for the Editor, the steno- grapher, the messenger boy, and the dummy pasterl The Green Editor Comes sputteringly into the commer- cial palace and demands of his fair typists whether they thought the paper was coming out this month or about July Fourth, He then yanks a scared Soph out of his reposeful study in, the library and mumbles 'fp 73417 :ZX -- 80- .JA X, something about Green Avenue- Tenth Street-third tloor-Mr. Spencer - excuse - Miss Mulock 's office-+-hands him his hat and shoves him out of the door. He telephones a few thousand times and then the all-important gallcys arrive. lie grabs the envelope, pulls out the long printed strips of paper, and leafs 'feverishly through them in search of that news item of whose presence he is doubtful. Not finding it, he sits down to dash off an account of a student who was overcome by too extensive work in preparation of an article for the paper. A head is poked in the door and the cheery question smites his ear, "VVhere is that story I handed in three months ago? You know, the one about 'Little VVillie's Birthday Partyf H The Editor ruinples his hair a little more, and mumbles without a flicker of the eyelash,"S,up in the galleys". The would-be author leaves in high hopes and expectations, little dream- ing that the said "Willie,s Birthday Party" may have been cremated un- ceremoniously in the heat-producing plant of the school. Janitors are so careless. Then comes that boresonie ordeal - yet the somewhat amusing experi- ence for the associates-pasting up the dummy. First, the three mus- kcteers, the editor and his two asso- ciates, "one for all and all for one" climb the stairs to the art room in quest of scissors and glue. After finding this necessary equipment there ensues what might appear to be a kindergarten class on a ramp- age. Every little movement has a meaning of its own. Each little art- icle is carefully marked with its gal- ley number by each little boy. If this marking is neglected there is a general hunt for the missing inch of a story or the last line of a joke. His Majesty, the Editor, finally de- cides on the arrangement of the front page, applying glue and fitting in the articles in a way that arouses the admiration of his associates and makes the pert red-headed one ex- claim, "Gee, he'd make a successful wall paper hanger". In the midst of the fracas, a recess is suddenly declared by the advent of the same red-head with refreshments. Finally after much indirect reason- ing, scratching out,and pasting over, the dummy is apparently ready for the printer. Explanations and direc- tions fairly overfiow the mind of the editor as he climbs the stairs to the office of the man higher up. The printer assures him in a mat- ter of fact, business-like way, that he can manage to get all of the import- ant items on the front page, and that the papers will be at the school by twelve o'cloek noon of the day of distribution. Then this much occu- pied and horribly busy person the Editor jumps at the chance for a few moments rest and seclusion, which he generally finds by drowning him- self in a quiet little coca-cola. He goes to the Palace of Learning next day-thinking "a little ease and rest to spend" - and is greeted by the censor who says- "Good work! Better ask Dr. Robb to an- nounce a staff meeting today to get the next number started!" And bang-he's off again -and it 'S all on again. But nevertheless this ex- perience has been both fascinating and instructive. VVe trust that those who shall succeed us will find it equally busy, proiitable, and pleas- ant. BILLY GREEN, '25, E ditor-in-Chic f . -741,7 '17 UV -31- ,f,4 x, 0 X Senior Commercial Club -' The Senior Commercial Club, whose object is advancement along educational. and social lines, was or- ganized on Tuesday, March 10, 1925, among the senior commercial class members, with the following officers: president, LeeAnna Laubacher, vice president, Thelma Eekley, secretary, Flora Nickola, treasurer, Charlotte Heacoxg sergeant-at-arms, Mr. H. C. Craig, sponsor, Miss Zella K. Morti- mer, school. reporter, Helen Sander- son. The following committees were also formed: constitution: Dolores Campbell, Phyllis Vogt, Elvera Sam- uelson, Grace Hamilton, Grace Nick- ola, Bernard Cswandelg social: Paul Earnest, Lulu Lingentelter, Kathryn O'Donnell, Margaret Clifford, Louise Eckley, Florine Riley, Miriam Fried- land, program, Ruth Isenberg,Seena Greenberg, Margaret Gerhardt, Ma- bel Glass, Miriam Leivine, Charles Rothrock. The meetings of the club will be held on the last Thursday evening of every month. At the first meeting, March 26, 1925, Mr. Dan Slep of the Altoona, Mirror spoke on a com- mercial subject. A Dalton adding machine demonstration was also given by a representative from the Dalton Company. The commercial juniors, who will automatically be members of the elub when they become seniors, ,will be initiated at 21 picnic to be held in the near future. Here's to the Commercial Club.

When the nominations were over, clever and appropriate posters were made by the girls and hung in the halls, announcing to the girls the various candidates and their respective merits. At the next meeting the candidates were introduced to the girls by the pupils who nominated them, and were voted upon by the combined classes. As a result of the election Mary McKelvey was chosen Presi- dent, Harriet Hoenstine, Vice Presi- dent, Christine Klesius, Secretary- and Winifrcd McClure, Treasurer. The Tuesday morning chapel per- iod is devoted each week to the Girls' League meetings. The group meet- ings of the different classes under the direction of Miss Lentz, Dean of Girls, were devoted this term in the Sophomore year to talks on health, in the Junior year to etiquette, and in the Senior year to vocations. The topics for the general meet- ings were based on scholarship, thrift, character and the work of the dental hygienist. At the beginning of the term the subject of uniform dress was again brought before the girls, and as they had decided last year by a majority vote in its favor, Miss Conley from Gable's Store showed them many different and attractive styles of jumpers that might be obtained. The first week of October was the date set for the adoption of this plan, giv- ing plenty of time to those girls who were having their jumpers made at home. So far the experiment has proven very successful, the majority of the girls are highly pleased with the good appearance and satisfac- tory style of our jumpers. Vile hope that the girls from the Lincoln Build- ing and Junior High School are find- ! ing it to be just as satisfactory and appropriate for every day Wear as we have in our one year's experience. .The program for the November meeting was the presentation of the Scholarship pins, provided by the League and conferred by Dr. Robb, who addressed the girls on standards of scholarship. Our new president, Mary McKelvey presided. 'Those who received the silver pins Were: Ethel Miller Mildred Stull Helen Press Catherine Beattie Mary McKelvey Jean Francis Caroline Eekels Dorothy Boyer Dorothy Geib The recipients were : Elizabeth Ayers Frances Brallier Katherine Lukens Margaret Milsom Eliz. Lingenfelter Marion Elder Viola Geesey Helen Weil Flora Niekola Nellie Goodman Ida, Rubin Virginia Varner Miriam Bechoefer Winifred McClure Elizabeth Sehimminger Eleanor Steckman Virginia Leader Margaret Hall Eleanor Wilson Elizabeth McKee Gertrude Craine of the bronze pins Grace Niekola Ruth Miller Josephine Hill Pauline Cockerille Harriet Hoenstine Janice Kauffman Margaret Leopold Dorothy Hafner Dorothy Brubaker Suzanne Banks Esther Snavely Grace Baker Matliilrle Connell Betty Bing Twenty-nine names appeared on the Girls' League Honor Roll for 1923. The number increased to forty- four for the year ending in 1924. The honor roll is based on an average of at least 90 per cent for the school year in four solids. A bronze pin is awarded to those who maintain this standard for the first year, a silver pin is given for those who maintain it for the second year, and a gold pin is given for the third year. A talk on 'thrift was given in the December meeting by Mr. Roelofs, a representative of the Altoona Trust Company, and formerly a teacher in the history department. Mr. Roelofs X 1 -g3- jq 0 emphasized the importance of small things in life, and pointed out the many benefits of the budget system. At the meeting of the Sophomore Class in December, Miss Lentz for the League, presented to the girls as a Christmas greeting, cards containing the Standards of Right of the Girls' League. She expressed the hope that the standards would be carried out by the girls and become the ideals to which they would closely live. Christmas greeting cards were sent to all the faculty advisors of the dif- ferent departments of the League. .At the January meeting the League had the pleasure and privi- lege of hearing Reverend Donald VV. t'arruthers, of State College. Rever- end Carruthers talked about a girl 's relationship to boys and what a beautiful thing friendship could be. Ile also told of the wonderful power of .prayer and how helpful. it can be in our daily living. Many otherinter- esting thoughts Reverend Carruth- ers left 'with us, and we feel sure that his talk will have had a good effect on the lives of the girls. The program for the February meeting was a little play given by several girls of the entertainment group under the direction of Eleanor VVilson, another member of the group. The play was entitled "Truth for a Dayl' and was very apropos, being given just a day after the celebration of George NVashington's Birthday. Q At the March meeting Dr. Hollis- ter of the State Department of Pub- lie Health spoke of the importance of keeping our teeth clean, and told us ofthe large opportunities afforded girls who wished to study dental hygiene. . X After discussion a Girls' League pin for every girl in the League was adopted. The design was drawn by Dorothy Shugarts, and is to be made up in gold or silver. This will make a most attractive pin of which every member of the League should be very proud. ' ' 'The scholarship fund carried on by the League is a wonderful oppor- tunity given to girls who show them- selves both capable of and willing to continue their education after finish- ing the High School course. The bases of determining this stan- dard are: First: Individual interest and creditable work in one of the depart- ments of the League. Second: A high standard of scholarship. Third: High. ideals expressed in both language and conduct. For the year 1923-24 three scholar- ships of 34150 each were awarded as follows: Betty Lingenfelter, attending the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, studying public school music. Frances Ilrallier, attending the Indianapolis Training School for Physieal Education. Rosie Corbin, attending School ot' Industrial Art in Philadelphia. This year has brought substantial increase in the permanent scholar- ship fund. The April general meeting was a business meeting devoted to reports of officers of the League and the dif- ferent departments, covering the work of the year. The President. gave a very interesting account of the Senior girls' trip to Vifashington. This closing meeting was featured by the presentation of a new gavel to the League. It is of fine wood with a silver band around it, in- scribed With the names and dates of the past and present Presi- dents of the League: Kathleen Hile, 1922-233 'Virginia Skillington, 1923-245 Mary McKelvey, 1924-25. The gavel was presented by Miss Lentz and accepted by our President, Mary McKelvey, and by her given to the Vice President, Harriet Hoon- stine, who in her turn will give it next year to the new President. The League wishes to express its hearty appreciation for the help given by the. various departments in forwarding the work of the year. ' Z2 542 'fi L17 :ZZ 4.34- Jflllomna X- The Girls' League in Washington in April 1925 On the morning of April 15, 1925, in the corridor of our High School groups of girls could be seen talking excitedly and when the signal rang for the first lunch period there was a hurried donning of coats and hats, cries of goodbye and good luck, and then the hasty departure of more than a hundred girls. In a few hours we met at the Altoona station ready to start on the annual trip to Wash- ingtoii. .Finally at 3:30 the train came and we hurried on to find seats together with friends and to settle our belongings in the special cars provided by the Pennsylvania. Rail- road. At last we were off, waving goodbye to friends and schoolmates. What fun we had with several ears to ourselves, playing games, singing, and having a. good time generally. Our ehaperones too, Miss Lentz, Miss Phillips, Miss Eberle, Miss Ritts, Miss Minster, and of course Miss Eyre, who always makes the life of the party, entered into the fun. At 10:30 P. M. we arrived at Washing- ton, and our first sight of its splen- dor was the depot, all white and so immense that we felt lost. 'The Union Station is truly a wonderful intro- duction to the beautiful buildings of NVashington. We were transferred immediately to the Franklin Square Hotel. After our rooms were assigned we were all so tired that good-nights were quick- ly said. We breakfasted at 7:45 the next morning, and then. left for the Cor- eoran Art Gallery. Here it was in- teresting to see the art students who with their stools and easels were copying the statues, many of which were familiar to us through our study of mythology. Next we visited t'ontinental Memorial Hall and the White llouse, in which we saw a few small rooms on the lower floor and the large East room. In this room is a gold piano at which We looked with not a little awe, and a life size portrait of Mrs. Coolidge. In the executive offices the party had the privilege of being personally greeted by the President. Notwith- standing the long line of visitors he said that he was very glad to see us. Another real pleasure was the visit to the I'resident's private yacht- thc Mayiiower. VVe explored the boat from the upper bridge to the lower deck and we understood why the President's family has enjoyed so much the week end trips they have taken on it. After lunch we boarded eleetrie ears enroute for Mount Vernon via Arlington and Alexandria, and at George VVashington's home everyone was delighted with the quaint build- ings and gardens. In the mansion proper we saw the 'First President's low ceilinged room with high four post bed and ruffled curtains. Vile saw the kitchen laundry and the car- riage house. In the kitchen there was a, huge black kettle, blue and white china, and dried berries hang- ing from the rafters. lVe saw the old and the new tombs of Vllashing- ton. After admiring the marvelous views from the front verandah of the mansion, we boarded the steamer and sailed up the Potomac. The girls and teachers enjoyed the view from the deck, every one enjoyed the trip. VVe arrived in VVashington in time for dinner, and in the evening we went to the theater. On Friday morning we visited the new and the old National Museums, the United States Fish Commission, and the Capitol. We saw the Senate chamber, the House of Representa- tives, and the Supreme Court. Per- haps we most appreciated the beauty of the Capitol when we saw it at night. Lighted by powerful lights concealed at the top of the dome, the spectacle of the pure white spire rising against the black of the sky was truly a beautiful sight. After lunch we left the hotel in sightseeing busses, for a tour of the i fi ...35.. . .JALZOOJLQ X.. city covering both the residential and business sections. 'That evening we spent at the Con- gressional Library, probably the most beautiful building we visited. We could sec the vast reading room from the balcony. The huge stair- ways are of marble, and the floor of mosaic with inlaid signs of the zodiac. In one room there were all the principal newspapers of the world, and in another illustrations from Dickens. One evening was all too short to see everything. The morning of the last day we spent at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the United States Treasury and the Washington Monu- ment. Many of us climbed to the top of the monument where from the tiny windows one could see the en- tire city. Some of the girls who had cameras took snap shots of the view. In the distance we could see the Po- tomac River, the Lincoln Memorial, and the cherry trees in full bloom. On the other side there were the Capitol and the White House, from still another side the Congressional The one aim of the girls of this department is to bring happiness and cheer to others. Flowers were sent to pupils and to members of the faculty who were ill, and to the homes visited by death. Cards were also sent to the shut-ins of the school. A number of the girls from this department assisted in the sale of Christmas seals at the Post Office and at school. At Christmas time a group of twelve visited the Williams- burg Homc, taking gifts, including articles of clothing and toys of all kinds, to the seventy-eight children enrolled there. .Through the efforts of this depart- ment several boys are helping an in- valid boy who is unable to attend school to keep up with his studies and pass the spring examinations. Many of the girls made scrap books and a committee was appoint- ed to distribute these books among the children in the hospitals. At Easter the girls sent potted flowers to the patients in the hospitals. Plans for a. revised handbook for Library.

Q .Jflllomta X, Library Club For the last few years in the li- brary there has been student help - one or two girls giving a part of their study hour to library work. This year the student help has been changed to a library club in the Girls' League i11 order that any girl who thinks she may want to take up library work, or who for any reason wishes to acquaint herself with books and libraries, may have the oppor- tunity of so doing. The club is under the direction of Miss Minster. Many girls signed for the club, there being six daily workers. The girls go to the library for their vacant period and if they have school work that should be done it is done first and the rest of the time is given to the work in the library. Part of the work consists in checking off returned books. The average time required for one person to do this work in our library is two periods a day. The girls learn the locations of the various classes of books, and return the used ones to their proper places on the shelves. VVhen new books are to be got ready for the shelves, the pasting of pockets and date slips is left for the girls. Stu- dents misplace many books, which makes it necessary to read the shelves, or to go over all the books carefully, taking out those which do not belong and turning right those placed upside down. Helping to col- lect and make clippings is another service, also the sending out of cards for overdue books. Subjects left at the library for reference are given to the girls to locate material. The girls assist students to locate books and materials. Those in the club find the work very interesting and of real cultural value. They learn library classifica- tion, how to use reference books which had been unknown to them, and receive in return for their services an insight into the mass of materials available for the untiring student. Vocational Department The Vocational Department of the Girls' League under the leadership of Miss Eberle held its first meeting for the year 1924-25 November 5, 1924. At this meeting the following officers were elected: President ...,...................... Dorothy Carter Secretary .................... Harriet Hoenstine Treasurer .................... Martha Thompson It is the purpose of this depart- ment to give the girls some insight into the vocations in which they are interested. The vocations scheduled for discussion this year were, clerk- ing in both the department and the five and ten cent stores, teaching, and nursing. These were studied from every angle, including wages, hours and conditions of employment, and the educational requirements necessary for undertaking these kinds of work. The information ob- tained in this way was recorded for the use of the social science classes. As a means of raising money for the scholarship fund of the League, the girls sold candy during the lunch periods. The girls of the Vocational De- partment have had a very delightful and successful year, and they extend their sincere wishes for similar suc- cess to those who will take up their work for the succeeding terms. The Dramatic Department About the middle of September, the Girls' League held a general meeting in order that the girls might sign up for the various groups. The enrollment of the Dramatic section for this year exceeded that of former years and was also greater than that of the other groups, proving the at- traction that the Dramatic group has for many girls, although not every one can have the pleasure of interpreting plays. About the last of September this group, under the direction of Miss 5'u'fl-4 if -37- JALZowLa Ritts, niet and elected the following officers. President ...,.......................... Gladys Feist Vice President ............ Dorothy Shugarts Secretary .................... Pauline Cockerille Treasurer ,....................... Virginia Va-rner The try-outs for the plays were held the first 'of October in the Cen- tral Grammar Building. At the Girls' League party, Dc- cember 19, the Dramatic group was busy again. Under the direction of Miss Ritts, this section gave a little play entitled Why The Chimes Rang. The spirit of Christ prevailed throughout the entire play and was in harmony with the coming Christ- mas season. Students and members of the ffacuty made up the cast. Holger, a Peasant Boy ..,.

Weaver .The play started With the four young Dangerfields Cvvhose parents were in Euriopcj'just're'ady to leave their old southern home , for six weeks. During these six weeks the house was to be let to a Yankee, whose strict instructions were that there should be no colored servants. Mlhite servants had been procured at a. XVashington Intelligence Office, but unfortunately at the last minute these servants refused to come. 'The Yankee was arriving at almost any moment, so the only thing to be done was to substitute the fouraristocratic young Danger-fields until other servants could be found. VVhen the Danger- fields took the parts of the butler, the upstairs girl, an all 'around boy and a cook, the fun began. Qllilda Rodkey very splendidly typified the Irish servant girl, Jane Ellen,While Drew Flegal represented a typical American business man. The humorous parts of the play were Well represented by Billy G-reen, Reba, Johnson, and Herbert Owens and earned the general. commenda- tion they received. Caroline Boltz pleasingly typified a southern mam.- my. Paul Smith and llenry Bloom proved to be capital business men, Florence Barnard impersonated a haughty society lady, and Helen Pearce, her sweet and agreeable daughter.. Last but not least John Weaver showed his poetical abilities. The large and appreciative audi- ence present at this play demonstrat- ed that the work of the Dramatic group is reeognized in the city. The money secured 'through this play went into the Girls' League Scholar- ship Fund. The success ot the Dra- matic evening was due to the time and labor unsclfishly given by Miss Ritts and the characters, also to the High School. Orchestra. At last year's school party this section gave a one-act play called Mrs. Pat and the Law. The cast was: Mrs. Pat ............................

President .............. ......... E leanor VVilson Vice President ...... ........... l lelen Faust Secretary ............. ....... N Virginia Leader Treasurer .................... Lulu Lingenfelter ' This group was formed for the purpose .of providing entertainment not only for the girls but also for the boys of the High School. The first entertainment they planned was a picnic for all the girls. The girls started from school at two-thirty one Friday afternoon late in September and hiked to the picnic grounds at Ivyside. When they had arrived they found that Mr. Smith, one of the owners of the park, had .1-My --89 already been there and had started the fires, a kindness which everyone appreciated. As soon as everyone had arrived games were started by Miss Eyre. Dodge bali was the main feature. A team was formed from each of the classes, the Freshmen playing the Juniors and the Sophomores playing the Seniors. After several spirited matches the Sophomores won. lt may be recalled that these same girls as Freshmen had carried off all the honors at the annual picnic held the year before at Lakemont Park. After playing all those strenuous games the girls were ready to get in line for the weiners which Miss lientz and the rest of the teachers in charge of the Girls' lleague had eooked for them. Everyone did jus- tice to them and to the marshmal- lows which had also been provided for the occasion. About that time dusk had set in, and the crowd started back to the city with the second annual picnic of the Girls' League as just one more memory of the happy times spent with the League in A. H. S. The next activity undertaken by this group was the annual party tothe boys of the school, given on Decem- ber 19 in the Junior High School. The committee in charge had worked for more than a month completing arrangements for it, but when it was over they felt justly rewarded for their efforts. The evening of the party found the Junior High crowded to overflowing with high school boys and girls and many alumni, eager to see what was in store for them. At eight o'clock everyone assembled in the auditor- ium for the program. The orchestra under the direction of Mr. Compton, played a few selections before the eurtain rose on the tirst number, a pantomime, entitled The Christmas Story, The east of characters in- eluded: Sliepherds ...........,.. llarvey Knauer, Robert Anthony, Robert Laramy Angel ..............................

W1111f1'6d McClure Angells Seng ........ Miss Regina Gorrity Christmas Carols ....,,.... Girls' Glee Club The pantomime was beautifully presented and was well received. Several scenes were given particu- larly well. The first scene in which the Shepherds received the news of the Christ Child's birth was re- markable for its beautiful lighting effect. The soft lights blended very well with the reds, the browns, and the blues of the Shepherds' costumes. In this connection it is only right that we mention the splendid acting of Dan, an Airedale dog owned by Robert liaramy, one of the shep- herds. lfle added much to the effect- iveness of the scene. The pantomime was featured throughout by the splendid interpretative acting of all the characters and the dancing of Christine Klesius. The next number was a play en- titled Why The Chimes Rang, under the direction of Miss Marie Ritts, Director of the Dramatic Group. After the program had been con- cluded every one adjourned to the halls for a surprise half hour, during which the girls of the Entertainment group distributed favors to the guests---large bow ties to the boys and hair bands to the girls. Each class was given a different color, the boys' ties corresponding to the girls' hairbands. Dancing followed in the girls' gymnasium which was taste- fully decorated in the Christmas col- ors. Music was furnished by the High School dance orchestra under the direction of Mr. Franz. It was a pretty sight to see the varied col- ors of girls' hairbands and dresses as the dancers glided over the floor. During the dancing program favors in the form of caps, balloons and parasols were distributed. At eleven o'clock everyone left for home after one of the most enjoyable evenings of our high school career. Another activity sponsored by the Entertainment group this year was the Friday afternoon dances. This was a new venture for our group. The dances were held in the main corridors on Friday afternoons from two-thirty until four o'clock. The first one was given for the Seniors only, followed by one for the Juniors and another for the Sophomores. The one requirement was that all the girls attending the dances should wear the regulation school dress. At the last dance the boys and girls from the Lincoln school were invited to attend and made the largest crowd of the year. Music was furnished by the dance orchestra of the school, and we wish to express our apprecia- tion of the willingness of Mr. Franz and the boys to contribute good dance music for our parties. Differ- ent members of the faculty were guests of honor at each of the dances. Refreshments consisted of candy sold by the members of the group. The Friday afternoon dances have proved among the most pleasurable social affairs of the school year. One of the greatest opportunities of our high school life is that of mak- ing friends. The Entertainment group feels that it has contributed toward the realization of this privi- lege. The parties and dances it has given have brought together the boys and girls of the whole school and have done much to make us more than mere acquaintances. The abil- ity to make friends is a gift in itself and the Girls' League has enriched the life of the school by helping boys and girls to cultivate the quality of friendliness and by emphasizing the potential value of changing ae- quaintanceship into friendship. 74'L.5'f74V .-90- ,wgii , f A .A . rw M '42 . . -'lfieyjt YU 'jk xg N4 'f' c ff W..

First Senior Social At last our antieipations ot almost tour years were realized on the night of the twenty-seventh ot February, nineteen hundred and twenty-five -our first Senior social! All through our lligh School eourse we had been envying the graduating classes the joy of Senior soeials, and when tinally the time eame for our own, it all seemed too good to be true. Everyone agrees that the soeial was a success, and now we are look- ing hack upon it with reeollections as happy as our expeetations were eight o'eloek on that memorable night. The hall was transformed into a tairyland of tuchsia. The eeil- ing lights were all softly shaded, easting over the oecasion a rosy glow quite in aeeord with the glow- ing eheeks and happy hearts. About 8 :15 we assembled in the auditorium to enjoy an entertainment which opened with a play under the direc- tion ot Miss Ritts entitled Wooed and Married and A'! The audience was in an uproar from start to iinish when the following east staged a joyful. moek wedding: The eonnnittees alluworked hard, Gmomummm-WU ,mm-Hamid Mussm, but telt repaid lor their ettorts when Blqdt.

Bill lfhronister enter- tained with some "Breezy Bits" on the piano, and Billy Green concluded the program with more laughs oe- easioned by his inimitable recita- tions. At about ten o'elock the High School orchestra tuned up and al- though the crowd was exceptionally large, the dance was the best feature of the evening. During the dancing refreshments were served in the Sub- terranean Gallery. It was not until eleven o'cloek that the orchestra played the home waltz. Everyone could hear as the Seniors were leav- ing: "Just to think - another Whole month till the next social !" But the twenty-seventh of March was soon here, with another glorified social, and the time goes on, flying fast toward Commencement which is now actually upon us. The Faculty Advisors for our Soc- ial were: Miss Ritts, Mr. G. B. Will- iams and M r. R. E. McCauley. 'The following parents were kind enough to act as ehaperones: Mi and Mrs. Orr M r and Mrs. Fair Mr and Mrs. Sisley Mr. and Mrs. McKelvcy Mr. and Mrs. Gee Mr. and Mrs. Raugh Second Senior Social Behold! The twenty-seventh of March is here, and again our halls are changed into fairyland-but a fairyland more perfect and more beautiful than the last. .As before, the social began by a play at eight- thirty and Elizabeth Schimminger, Frank Dibert, Mary lllclielvey, and Herbert Owens took the parts of young married people who had a little matrimonial difficulty but it all ended happily most of them do. About nine-thirty the entertain- ment was over and the happy Sen- iors and guests left the auditorium expectantly awaiting the advent of the orchestra. The beautiful colors as one looked up the hall seemed alight with springtime, and the gaiety and joy of it all had pepped everyone up to the highest degree. Suddenly the music had begun. Such a circling and flashing of colors! dancing and the fun Everyone was of the evening b . The High School orchestra was play- e gan ing, and the music they furnish is without doubt a credit to the leaders and the musicians in our own school. A thousand rolls of serpentine had been given out and these strips of bright colors made the decorations still more entrancing. Everyone was tangled in the serpentine and the happy chatter of the joyful class- mates made the social o11e that will go down in the history of old A. H. S. as a wonderful event. Then again about 10:30 intermis- sion was announced and delicious re- freshments were served. The punch bowl was especially popular. The chaperones were Messrs. and Mesdames Gibbons, Klesius, Vllalters, Geib, Hess, Stitt and Weil. The festivities ceased at l1:30, all pleased and satisfied with the ocea- sion.

The program rendered during the dinner included several beautiful vocal selections by Jean Milleisen, with violin obligate by John Shaw and piano accompaniment by Amelia Robb. Thetoastmaster,Charles Faris, after a brief introductory talk called upon Dr. Robb for the first speech. He briefly expressed his sentiments concerning the departing class, which has a membership of sixty-one, and wished them all good luck a11d suc- cess in the future. Miss Carolyn Miller who has taught most of the class during its' four years in High School was called upon second to talk to the class. Miss Mulock and Miss fl?hillips were the other two teachers who were present. Other speeches were given by Tom Goodfel- low, center on the varsity basketball team, John Hill, chairman of the banquet committee, and Betty Block, who was to leave for liock Haven Normal. 'The turkey dinner was a real feast, perfect in every detail, thanks to Miss VVertz who arranged it. After dinner a small school orches- tra under direction of Norman Camp- bell played for the dance till twelve o'clock. Vile all left then, sorry to think that January 31, 1925, was probably the last time we would all be united to spend a social evening together.

Arzmfidazs LITER RY G 0 6 H99 W ,ffl X A Gentle Reminder Nestling 'inong the Alleghenies Beneath a s1noke tleeked sky, There lies our own Altoona fair Vtfhere the flame of life burns high. Men eall it the Keystone city Of our fair Keystone stateg lt lies beside the forged steel trail, The one-time western gate. To us inside 'these four stone walls An honored task is given, To stand steadfast for God and home, And not like ehaif be driven. So year by year we are prepared For this great honored task, And year by year we're taught to stand Against life's fiercest blast. These four stone walls give up their trust The world lies at our feetg The next great step will be our own, Remember time is iieet. These four stone walls have kept us safe Throughout thesefew short years, XVe've worked together side by side, W'e've had our smiles and tears. Treasured friendships have been Wrought Of silver and of gold, O may they stand the test of years, And others li.ke them mold. There's one great lesson hard to learn, The greatest one in life, Of serviee to our fellow kind, Instead of endless strife. This span called youth is all too short, The hours fast are fleeting, And ho-ary age comes all too quiek, And all too soon the meeting. When sands of time are near run out And the sun of life is sinking, As we near the end of the sunset trail, And our tired minds cease thinking. Then blooms the golden age of youth In 1ne1n'ry's flower garden, Where the flowers have the mystic charm Of the fair woods of Arden. A charm that ever brings us joy A charm that lives forever, A charm that lives in Heaven's realm When earthly ties we sever. But. the final reck'ning t-oo must come, And a question will be asked, The question to Him all important, Were you faithful to your task? So live that when this question's asked, 'That you truthfully can say "I was assigned some work to do And I d.idn't run away." SCOTT GEESEY. .

Jan. 1, 1925 6 II Ki ' K " r' flgr -1021- Jfqllorma X- The Senior Class Prophecy The seer drew back from his crys- tal and permitted me to gaze upon the wonders he had conjured. .At first I could distinguish nothing in the cloudy sphere, but gradually out of the misty nothingness a picture began to form, and a scene to be enacted. I was beholding a wonder- fully equipped opcrating room. A group of white-clad figures was gath- ered about a table. In the center, immaculate in nurse's white, stood Tommy Thompson herself, the effic- ient right-hand of the acting surgeon who, to my amazement, proved to be Tom McNally. As the great man triumphantly exhibited a pair of in- offensive looking tonsils and stag- gered back exhausted from his haz- ardous task, I looked upon the face of the inert patient. I could have vowed it was Marian DeHaven, but, before I could make certain, the scene faded and another took its place. This time it was the lobby of a splendid hotel. Beverly Robinson and Marjorie Raugh were just in the act of sauntering away with two men-need I mention them? Even as I followed their progress they stopped to exchange polite nothings with Betts Smith, Martha Cook and Georgia Stevens,handsomely gowned as always. But this scene too faded. As the intervening mists took form, I gazed into a courtroom where the prosecuting attorney, Billy Green, was denouncing in vehement terms Bill Sisley and Kenneth Ren- ner, who were on trial for working overtime. Three of the most sym- pathetic spectators were George Beech, Bob Welsh and Robert Stirk. Scott Geesey, the court reporter, was scribbling verses boredly on a pad when a. whirl of mists obscured this interesting picture. Now, the background was a huge auditorium, filled, it seemed, with hundreds of persons. I took fresh heart at the scholarly appearance of the gathering, for I knew that not a few of my brilliant classmates would be there. To be sure, the first per- son to attract my eager glance was the speaker, Clayton Brenneman, a little more dignified, a little more poised perhaps, but still old Clayt, as we all knew him. And directly below, in the very first tortoise- shelled row sat Dorthy Geib and Paul Kurtz with Winifred Mctllure and Mary MeKelvey just across the aisle. The speaker was succeeded by a tall blond man, surely Charles Faris! I was becoming quite elated that here were more friends, when the ball was suddenly obscured, and I turned away reluctantly, thinking my wonderful opportunity was gone. With a quick gesture of his lean brown arm the wise man brought me back. A curtain was rising upon the lovely shadowy stage of a darkened theatre. As I bent a rapt gaze upon the exquisite setting, a girl, swathed in filmy garments, and wraithlike in her slenderness,spun out - Christine Klesius! No one else could have at- tained such mastery of the terpsi- ehorean art. It seemed but a mo- ment when the performance ended, and lights showed a delighted audi- ence splitting its gloves enthusiastic- ally. Most enthusiastic were Miriam Vifilloughby, Susan Peters, Martha Pearce, Florence Rook, Betty Fair, and Caroline Roth, their gorgeous frocks Cplease don't ask me to de- scribe themj set off by the darker attire of their companions, Herbert Owens, Drew Flegal, Truman Crist, Jim Orr, John Hess, Jimmy Grove and Bill Gailey. Then the lights snapped off. Madame Genevieve Best, with her famous voice, was weaving spells about her entranced audience. But, now, the swirling mists, darting to and fro, hinting everything, but exposing nothing, told me that my glimpse into the crystal ball was ended. My Magic Moment was gone. MARIAN GANTY. , I -- 103 .JALZOUJLQ R 4. Only a Dream Yes, I was growing sleepy, I could no longer force my drowsy eyelids to stay above their glittering orbs and so they gradually sank to their nightly level while the book I was reading slipped slowly to the floor closing the pages on that chapter, "Where to, Brother?" so glowingly describing the advances of science and making possible predictions as to the future. I do not know how long I enjoyed that sweet state known as sleep or by what means or cause I was awak- ened, but awaken I did with the strangest feeling imaginable. I did not seem to be flying nor yet to be walking, still all the time I was look- ing straight at the sky whose stars seemed to be rushing past me at a great rate. This strange motion con- tinued for the space of half an hour, as well as I could judge, and then I was deposited in front of a walled cityso brilliantly lighted that I could hardly see for a few moments, but then I beheld a tiny man who stood beside me motioning me to follow him past the walls. I hesitated for a second, and then impelled by an irresistible force I went through the gate. Immediately inside the gate I was confronted by a mass of electric lights all skillfully worked out in different colors, and spelling words. So absorbed was I in these huge signs that I had forgotten about my com- panion, when imagine my surprise to see him standing by my side fully a half foot taller than I. I stepped back in astonishment, but he merely pointed toward the sign with a com- manding gesture. Then I read: The Kingdom of Genius Home of Inventors displayed in letters of large size at the top of the series. Directly under- neath appeared thc words, Rules and Regulations, followed by a great ar- ray of small lights. The rules thus denoted were so numerous that I shall mention only those that seemed most important to me. I. No one in this kingdom is per- mitted to speak audibly to anyone or anything until he has completed his work, at which time he may utter one shout, when he will be shown from the city in order that he may proceed to the inhabited region and give to the people the benefit of his work. II. Every one in this kingdom must have about or near his person the means of signs printed on cards. III. Every one is permitted two visits to the inhabited region before his work is completed, for the pur- pose of bringing means for the test- ing of his work, on condition that he assumes the size of a manikin upon leaving these walls, and does not again assume normal form until he reenters these walls. IV. Strangers brought here for testing shall be treated respectfully and shown the kingdom before they are used for the intended purpose. If said strangers are overcome dur- ing the course of the experiment they shall be placed secretly in the safety vault forever. V. All wishing to sojourn in this kingdom must conform to all things prescribed above. By order of Ruling Genius-Master Mind of Inventors As soon as I had read the third and fourth rules it dawned upon me for what purpose I had been brought to that strange place. A vague fear elutched at my heart. I began to wonder what the contents of the safety vault could be like. My thoughts were rudely disturbed by my guard's seizing my arm, and hurrying me forward. 6 Ego ' 5 - 104- qw AD JALIOOJLG Xe xl Ca if I A s s 1 l N 0 'Behind the huge signs I had a View of the whole city, or kingdom, as they called it. Stretched out over the territory enclosed by the walls were numerous tracts of ground, all of the same size and each containing a stool and table and in some cases a man busily at work. The guard conducted me among these tracts and by means of the cards carried made known to me that I could stop and investigate any work that inter- ested me. - ' My attention was first attracted to a large white screen, erectedby one of the workmen, on which I saw faintly the figure of a girl dancing while strains of music came from a curious box which proved to be a radio. Attached to the set was a small projector, much like those used for lantern slides. Turning to a smiling man who was manipulating the set I nodded to him. Immedi- ately he arose and by fast changing of cards spelled out this message: "This is a seeing and hearing radio. It will be wonderful. I will be out in two years' I smiled cheerfully. llc bent busily over his apparatus and I passed on. I was interested in a small car which I recognized as a Ford, with broad wings on either side and a mighty propellor in the front. As I watched this vehicle from a short distance the wings suddenly col- lapsed and thepropellor disappeared. I started toward it, but the inventor, seeing us approaching, produced cards which read: "This is only a flying Ford. I have ten years to go. 'Don't bother me." I took the hint and kept on. I had not proceeded far with my guard when my nostrils were assailed by a sweet odor which seemed to put new life into me and to make me want to help every one. A whitish seemed to be tl1e cause of this. Tracing it to its source I sawa bright little man working over a small cyl- inder into which the gas was being forced. I took it to be a war mach- 14 ,LJ1f ine, but my fears were soon allaycd, for with his signs the little man ex- plained, "Peace forever! This is the vapor of eternal brotherhood, one bomb will stop a war. VVait twenty years." I shook my head duhiously, but in my heart I wished success to this vapor. Quite a distance farther on my attention was drawn to a man stretched out 011 his table, apparent- ly asleep, who suddenly arose and jerked a pair of strange phones from his head and threw them vio- lently to the ground. In reply to my questioning glances he looked rather sheepish, and with his signs said, "I have the machine that will teach you while you sleep, but I never grow tired and therefore I do not sleep and cannot test it successfully. But success will come in thirty years." With a nod of finality he again set the machine on his head and tried to return to slumber. As we were drawing near the en- trance of the city I was startled by a shriek of exultation directly to the rear of us. Turning quickly we saw a man dancing in high glee and wav- ing a small article above his head, together with a sign which said :"No burglar will overcome this lock. I am a. success. Goodhylu By that time two other men whom I judged were guards like the one accompany- ing me, had hurried to the man and were conducting him to the gate. I wished him success but I remem- bered other burglarproof locks. But now the lights seemed to be growing dim, or was it my imagina- tion, and my guard with a peremp- tory nod beckoned me to hasten. Halfway to the gate we stopped be- fore a group of men whom I had not noticed before. They seemed to be intently interested in a tiny box one of them was holding, but upon see- ing us they stepped aside and on a sign, printed in red letters, I saw the following: "The powder of electric- ity. No shock received by the body from any current is too great to be f, 105 - JAL1ioona absorbed by this powder. You will form our first test." .Then I realized their purpose in bringing me to this place, and when I saw "5,000 volts"printed on a card which they passed around, my heart sank to my toes and cold sweat stood on my temples. VVould I submit? I asked myself, and a small voice answered, "You must!" Then I re- membered reading about a man who had been killed by a shock of four hundred volts, I remembered the significant statement at the end of the article: "Nothing can or prob- ably ever will be able to curb the power of electricity." With my nerves at the highest tension, I saw one of the men start toward me with two wires in his hand. Then I bolted. I ran swiftly, my legs working like pistons but with considerable effort. I heard steps behind me, but no voices. The steps were drawing closer. I saw the gate. Alas! it was closed. Could I even reach it? An- other leap,I touched it and struggled frantically to the top. I felt a hand on my back, but a desperate east threw me over the gate and flat on the ground of the other side. I was safe. Slowly I regained my senses, the ground had a carpety feel and I saw the legs ot a chair on a level with my eyes, but look as I might I saw no gates. It must have been a dream. I heaved a sigh of relief. The book I had been reading lay at my side. Idly opening it my eyes fell on the words, "XVhere to, Brother?" and with a feeling of relief I replied aloud, "To bed".

GEESHY. g a Zi I 411 77,1 U , D 'T -106-- Q JA L- Emy Lou's Romance "No mother, it isn't that. I just don't seem to have a good time with Stan." Painfully Emy Lou was ex- plaining the circumstances to her mother, who couldn't understand Why Stanford and Emy Lou couldn't agree. "It does seem too bad, Emy Lou, when his mother and I are such dear friends. And Where could one find closer friends than your fathers? But there, dear, I don't want you to think he's being forced upon you." Mrs. Keeler, white-haired and digni- fied, appeared to have let the matter drop. But she looked questioningly at her daughter as she hastened to answer the telephone. ' ' Hello - yes, Nancy? " "Yes, I've got the most scrump- tious news! Stan just called me and asked me to the hop and I accepted. Listen,dear,I don't want to be catty, but he's so nice, and I knew you wouldn't mind." t'VVell, I should say not." "Anyhow, you've probably turned him down already. Now truly, didn 't you?" "Yes, but he just asked me be- cause he knows how mother and Aunt Em feel about it." "Emy Lou, you're just precious. I felt sort of guilty, even when I knew he'd never have asked me if he'd thought you'd have gonef' "Wl1y Nancy, no such thing! He likes you or he wouldn't have asked you." "You'rc going, though Emy Lou, aren't you? Please?" "Think about it. Call you if any- thing turns up. Or better, I'll drive over, if I can fix that tire myself. Dad has the other one, so if I can fix it, I'll be over. Goodbye, honey. And Nancy, I'm really gladf, Thoughtfully Emy Lou made her way to the garage, where after don- ning a pair of old coveralls she set to work on the tire. Between tugs she kept reminding herself that she was really glad, but she just couldnit seem to get used to the fact that Stan was 'taking Nancy and not her to the hop. She had been sitting on the run- ning board for some time after she had fixed the tire when her mother again called her to the telephone. Her heart began to beat queerly as she hurried toward the house. Odd, she thought, since she didnit know who could possibly be calling except Stan. "Hello -- Yes? Oh yes, Stan!" CI must be very cool and distant even though I am glad, she thought.j "Hello, Emy Lou! Did you decide not to go to the prom, or just not to go with me? The latter, eh?" "Nancy just called." CNow he'll know I know.j "Oh, yes! Then she told you, I suppose? VVell, this is why I called. You i121V0l1,I aecepted another bid, have you? Gosh, 1'm relieved. You know my roommate, at least you've heard me speak of him? Well, he 's coming home with me next week-end. And-Emy Lou, are you there? VVell, as I was saying, he saw your picture, Emy Lou, and he wants to take you to the hop. It's a bad case, however o11e-sided it may be. I told him I'd do my best for him, so Emy Lou, you'll go won't you? Please ? lIe's an awfully good sort, and- well, you will go?" "VVell, Mr. Falton,before I answer would you mind telling me just ex- Zf'7"7777ZZ 4aw"f1'iff -107- A X, actly who it is that you are raving about?" "Why, Emy Lou, you know Peyts -Peyton McKenzie. He's really an awfully good sort. Awfully good looking - but say Emy liou, tell you what. I've got his picture around somewhere, and if it's all right, 1'll bring it around tomorrowf' 'WVcll, I'll go, Stan, 'cause I do want to go to that hop." "Oh, I say, Emy Lou-1 -youire not 'peeved about Nancy?" "Don't flatter yourself, Mr. Fal- ton. But really, Stan, I'm not peeved. I'm really awfully glad." "VVell, goodbye. See you tomor- row then. ' ' "Oh, Mother, I am going to the hop after all. Stan's roommate, Peyton McKenzie, is taking me. You know Stan 's taking Nancy." Brave- ly Emy Lou strove to be easual. "Isn,t that the sweetest name! Sounds just like Burns. Oh Mother, that dress up in La Shoppe! I think I'll drive over for Nancy and go right over for it before the shop closes." As Emy Lou changed clothes she sang snatches of HAuld Lang Syne" and "Afton VVaters". As she drove over to Nancy 's she pictured con- fusedly this young M acKenzie. Tletis sec now, what is the Scotch type? But vainly she racked her brain for a typical Scotchman of twenty years or perhaps younger, and by the time shehad reached Nancy's house, she'd not have been the least surprised to see a man in plaid kilties strolling down the street playing a bagpipe. She found Nancy in the kitchen making fudge. Emy Lou told her the main facts and promised the details on the way to La. Shoppe. Katie was prevailed upon only with much coaxing and a dollar,to finish the fudge and wash the dishes. VVhen Nancy had been told the story without the omission of a single detail, she hugged Emmy Lou perilously tight. "Oh, honey, itis just too sweet. I'd feel, terribly guilty to be going to that hop with Stan, and you not going at all. And youfll look sweet in that dress", rapturously Nancy planned. HYes, dear, a11d I want you to stay with me that night, too. Iid stay with you, but Dad won't be home and I don't like to leave Mother alone all night. You don't mind, do you? I know it's my turn, but I'll do it for you sometimef' When Stan called the following day he bore with him a picture of his Scotch friend. The picture must have measured up to Emmy Louis hopes, for she went to sleep that night she had a confused vision of brown eyes, smiling lips, and wavy hair,"Not eurly",Stan had hastened to explain, "and anyhow it 'S hardly noticeable the way he brushes it." As the week passed Emy Lou was hot and cold by turns. She couldn't help wondering if he were that lueautiful-but-dumb variety so nu- merous just then. Several times she almost retracted her acceptance, but in earnest discussions with Nancy she was persuaded to go. As a special favor to Stan, Emy Lou and Naneb' were persuaded to ride down to the train to meet him. Breathlessly they donned their trick- iest dresses, and when they were ready to go each was well. aware of her own charm. As Emy Lou saw Stan alight from the train she hardly noticed Nancy 's breathless "Oooh" so engrossed was she in the search, for his companion. When at last she saw him she whis- pered to Nancy, HWhy Nancy, he's even nicer than his picturef, ln what seemed to ltlmy Lou an impossibly short time, the introduc- tions were over and they were driv- ing along chattering like old friends. -10S- i JA For a long time after they l1ad left the boys at Stan's own door, the girls were silent. And when they parted at Naneyls door they kissed eaeh other impulsively. That night at the hop, 'there were no happier nor pret- tier girls to be seen, and truth to tell the boys seemed not at all displeased. As the two girls lay in bed that night, Emy ljou ventured, " Well, do you like Stan? il t'Oh, Emy Lou, isn't he just won- derful? 'l. was just so proud to be with him. And Irlmy Lou, he asked me to the Thanksgiving Fraternity danee. But W- why Emy Lou, what 's the matter? V! 'tOh, T'm so happy, for Peyton asked me too, and I was just dying to go, but not without you. And Nancy darling, he's con1ing up next week with Stan," and, very low, "and he said the fraternity pin I should wear would be a lucky, lucky pin. It's quite a good old world after all, Nance?" MARTHA D. PE ARCE. The Spectre ot the Along the old lndian Trail, a short distance below Frankstown in the Juniata Valley, lies the village ot Geeseytown, a sleepy little place boasting of one street, along which straggle the few dilapidated houses. About midway down the street is the old town pump, around which the wiseacres gather to recount their experiences. Just beyond the village is the cemetery, in which lie many of the forefathers of the inhabitants, not a few ot whom fought in the Revolutionary XVar. The following story centers around one of these: Une dark, muggy evening, while the customary erowd was gathered around the pump, a noise like the sound of a wagon drawn swiftly over a. rough road was heard. In a tew minutes a young boy came dashing into the circle of people with eyes agog and hair disordered. His story, told between frightened gasps, was that as he was driving past the eeme- tery, on his way back from the mar- ket, something suddenly appeared in the middle ot the road and stopped his horses. The apparition then elambered up the side of the wagon and sat down beside him, all the while-uttering not a sound. 'The boy, Old rankstown Road aeeordiug to his own story, whipped up his horses and drove with all speed to the village, not taking an- other look at the figure beside him. VVhen he arrived it was gone. By this time the whole village was gathered to hear the tale, most peo- ple laughing and saying that the boy's imagination was getting the better of him. Finally the crowd dispersed and the incident was tor- gotten. A few nights later a man and his wife, driving home from a neighbor- ing farm had the same experience. Although not quite so frightened as the boy had been, they lost no time in getting home to tell their adven- ture. Two young men, upon hearing the boy's story verified by the olde! people, decided to see for them- selves. They proeured a horse and wagon, and at about the same hour at which the spectre had been seen by the others, set out tor the ceme- tery. When they arrived at the up- per end, they saw a small figure with both hands upraised. They stopped the wagon, the figure hopped up on the seat between them with a celerity surprising for one ot' his apparent L. --109- Alwonak age. The two youths, bent upon sat- isfying their curiosity and unravel- ing the mystery, looked intently at the ghost. He was not over five feet high. His dress was that of a Revolutionary soldier, in buff and blue, with tar- nished brass buttons. llis face had the appearance of a dried up apple, so wrinkled and yellow it was. His long pointed white beard reached below his waist, and on his head was the tri-cornered hat of the Revolu- tion-weovering the white hair which was caught back in a pigtail and tied with a faded red ribbon. The young men asked him who he was, but he made no answer. Again and again they asked him, but he made no reply. At last they rode on silently toward the town. When they reached the end of the cemetery the soldier climbed over the side of the wagon, and as his feet touched the ground he vanished. The brave young men whipped up their horse and rode into town at breakneck speed, in fact, if the wait- ing townsmen had not called to them to stop, they might have gone clear through the town. And to this day, when any of the townspeople have to pass the ceme- tery, they go before the shades of night cast weird shadows on the tombstones. DOROTHY BRUBAKER. A Tale of the Pacific lflrom the lips of a dying drunken Kanaka in Singapore it came, a tale of marvelous wealth, glittering jewels, priceless pearls, heaps of gold, all in the wreck of a Spanish galleon somewhere in the dim, mys- terious Pacific. lt spread like wild- tire through harbor towns, and Sin- gapore went wild with the news. livery seaworthy craft put out in search of this Eldorado, and every man capable of service tried to get passage, it was indeed a veritable exodus. Among the multitude of wander- ers and adventurers i11 Singapore, there were two who knew the secret -Patrick 0'C'onnell and Tsao Mat- su. lt was they who found the Kan- aka first, lying in a filthy gutter with a Malay kris in his backwa victim of the lust for gold. He had told them, between fits of coughing, of the wreck he had accidentally dis- eovered while he was swimming. It lay in a lagoon of an atoll, unarmed, unclaimed by any country, lying northwest of Tahiti. He had been fishing and a. storm had blown his canoe to the atoll, where it had been wrecked on the jagged eoral reefs. During his enforced sojourn on the atoll he had explored it thoroughly, and had located the wreck. It lay in a. little inlet in the eastern part, in twenty feet of water, and it had be- come the haunt of the dreaded torni, the octupus, and the murena. He had dived and found a chest, and after opening it and securing ahand- ful of gold, narrowly escaping the octupus, he had wandered about the atoll until he was taken off by some friendly natives. Vtlith his gold he had sailed to Singapore, and he be- lieved, incidentally to his death. He paused i11 his tale, his lips covered with blood Hecked froth, and shook convulsively as he coughed. In his broken English he continued that there was a little hill on the east of the atoll and a great jagged rock on the west. But here his voice faltered, and Pat and 'Tsao knew they were in thc presence of the dead. .Tsao Matsu was the son of a noble- man of the old regime, highly edu- cated but imbued with the spirit of 1 TZULZZZ TZZZZ ee- 110 -- -. -fgqlwmra in Wanderlust. Pat was a happy, rol- licking Irishman, as true a son of Erin as ever loved a shamrock. Two years before a half caste Hindu had run amuck in Calcutta, and had tried to cut short Tsao's life, because he happened to be nearest, with an axe, but a fist backed by a brawny Irish- man had interposed, and the Hindu's body was thrown into the sluggish Ganges. From Calcutta the two had trav- eled the world over whither their fancy led them. They were insepar- able friends, and generally liked. Pat had two outstanding faults, drinking and talking. Separated from Tsao for a few minutes, he had become the center of a motley crowd in Pamba Jake 's saloon in Singapore and he told them a wild tale of wealth. Tsao, returning, stopped the story quickly before Pat had be- trayed thc location, but what he had told was sufficient. For six long months they drifted about the islands waiting for the news to blow over, but one dark night they stole a small sailing boat from the little harbor of Tahiti, and sailed away into the night. Carefree, and with good sailing weather, they headed for their treasure with all speed, for the boat was provisioned for a monthis cruise. Two days northwest from Tahiti they sighted an atoll, but there was no jagged rock or hill to mark it, and they turned northwest again. On. the third day a little hill rose out of the gently heaving waters of the Pacific, on it were waving cocoa- nut palms and a golden sandy beach. Vilestward a great scarred black rock rose abruptly out of the shimmering golden sands of the beach, and the treasure seekers knew they had reached their journey's end. Care- fully picking their way among the many colored jagged coral reefs they found the lagoon entrance, and a half hour saw them safely anchored in their harbor of promise. It was an enchanting spot of clear blue iridescent waters sparkling in the sun. The waving nodding cocoa- nut pahns, the dazzling goldensands, the coral bottom of purple, yellow, blue and pink coral among patches of gleaming white sand, the blue Pacific sky overhead, and the mild cooling ocean breezes made it a Par- adise of the Pacific. The next day bright and early the two men found the inlet and began to look for the wreck. It was an ideal day, the dancing waves lapped musically against the sides of the boat and the sunshine lighted up the lagoon bed, making it an ocean fairy place. Multi-colored fishes swam to and fro as the boat moved along. Suddenly Tsao cried out. There among patches of white sand and clumps of poisonous purple coral, lay a ship, barnacle and coral encrusted, but a sure-enough ship. The boat was anchored. Pat stripped to the waist, stuck a diver-'s knife in his belt, and while Tsao lowered a rope to the wreck, down through the cool, translucent wat- ers went Pat,-down to the wreck. Millions and millions of fish, large and small and of every color of the rainbow, swam about him as he reached the deck. Parts of the ship were gone, forming numerous caverns. Cautiously Pat made his way to the cabin. Above the ruined doorway, he saw the words, Santa Brigida.. Through his mind flashed memories -memories of a night in Lisbon, of the music of guitars, the rose per- fumed air, the whirling dancers, the talking sailors, the tales of lost ships, and particularly a tale of the lost treasure ship, Santa, Brigida, that had tried to return to Spain west across the uncharted Pacific,to avoid Drake. His lungs clamoring for air roused him from his effort of mem- ory, and he swam to the surface. As he left the doorway he did not see a dark mass slump back to the cabin iioor and a pair of ghoulish eyes search the upper waters. ,A few minutes in the fresh air sufficed him, and he dived again directly to the Zi v fd +-111-- .JAILZOOILQ X, eabin and entered. There on the warped and rotted floor was an open ironbound chest from whieh gold and jewels gleamed. He took a step for- ward. As he did so a slimy tentaele encireled his leg and he looked into ghoulish eyes. Ile turned to flee, but other tentaeles fastened themselves upon him. The terrible eyes came eloser. Pat drew his knife to fight for his life. Already his lungs were crying for air. His flesh burned like fire where the tentacles had fastened themselves. Grasping his knife in his free right hand,he desperately sliced at the tentacle about his left arm, The keen blade severed the tough, rubbery flesh, but another tentaele took its plaee. Another thirty see- onds would exhaust his breath. Suddenly a shadow passed above and the lithe form of Tsao appeared at the doorway. Instantly compre- hending the situation, he raised a huge fish spear and thrust it squarely between the ghoulish eyes. The oetu- pus jerked eonvulsively, its head loosened. Pat dropped to the floor uneonseious. Grasping Pat about the waist, 'Tsao swam to the surface and in a triee was utilizing a Japanese method of artifieial respiration. For half an hour he labored. Finally Pat tliekered his eyes and sat up. He was so weak he eould not rise to his feet, so Tsao dragged him into the eabin and put him to bed. The next day, a. trifle weak, but wearing his usual smile, Pat -ap- peared on deck. Tsao took another fishing spear and tied a rope around his waist, and dove down to the wreek. Cautiously he entered the cabin. A dark mass lay on the floor beside the ehest. flle prodded it gently with the long spear. It did not move, the tentaeled killer was dead. Tsao closed the ehest, tied the rope about it, and rose to the sur- faee. The ehest they pulled to the deek of their boat and opened. There before the astonished eyes of the ad- venturers gleamed the treasure of the Santa BI'ig'ida,-glitteringjewels, gleaming heaps of gold, pearls of purest lustreh-an untold fortune. Three days later a certain A. J. Marcia of Tahiti was agreeably sur- prised by a grinning Irishman and a smiling Jap who explained that they wished to eompensate him for the unpremeditated loan of his boat. Later on in llonolulu the firm of O'Connell and Matsu, dealers in jew- elry, was established, and a happy eottage in Ireland, and a family in Tokio, eaeh rejoieed over the return of a long lost son. Their thrill of adventure over, East and VVest settled down in harmony, satisfied that they need never again be wan- derers on the faee of the earth. SUOTT GFIESEY. What a Station Clock Saw and Heard li am an old station cloek with a round kindly face. Spring, summer, autumn, winter, through the short seasons l run, never changing, never changed. I have watched trains go- ing east, trains going west, trains on time,'and trains the day after time. From young January until aged De- eember I turn and wateh, my face inserutable, my heart beating never slower, never faster, as the erowds eome and go. "That old eloek says a quarter 'til four and my wristwatch says it's only half past three," announces a bright blue eyed high sehool miss, gazing quizzieally up at me. " Well Peggy, I presume that since the trains depend upon it, it just might have the nerve to be right," drawled sareastieally Graee Des- mend. "Oh, don't mind that," comforted Jane, Hrun along and get your ZW!! 947 352 Z -+11 2 JALZOUJM X. schedules. Welre all in a hurry- I'm never home on tin1e any more. Being a Senior is more important than I ever dreamed it would be." "Don't take it so hard,little one," retorted Grace, "there've been Sen- iors before us, although it does seem that each year I do less and yet have less time. Now where's the fallacy in that 'V' "Well Grace, if you walk as slow- ly as you talk, it's a wonder you're not late every day," laughed Betty, a small dark girl with flashing smile. You've just about exhausted your excuse supply now, I'm afraid." "Here, you kids, quit your squab- bling, you're entertaining the entire station. Besides I've got those pesky schedules, so I'm ready," ordered Peggy with the smiling confidence of a leader in her crowd. 'tYour lack of dignity is appalling. NVe were all more prim when we were Freshies than we are nowf' "That's so--and at this rate what will we be when we're through col- lege?" asked Betty as they passed through the door. "I think so, I think so," mur- mured a prim old lady who had sternly Watehed their bright faces without smiling. "'What's the mod- ern generation coming to, anyhow? -Why when I was a girl ..... " her voice trailed off, and I laughed four. 'lk 'lf If 'IF By their collegiate air I could eas- ily guess that they were college fel- lows so I listened to them. "Well I'm darned glad to go back to college," growled John to Howard as they sat waiting for the train to carry them back to Penn State. "All the governor did was preach, preach, preach, the whole Christmas vaca- tion. 'You're spending too much money. Do you think I'm a mint '? VVhat are you doing with your allow- ance that you're overdrawing like this?' That's all I heard morning and night, 'til I'm nearly crazy." "How many nights did you say you were home?', slyly interposed Howard. "Aw, cut it out,'l snapped John, "do you 'think a fellow comes home to sit and entertain his kid sister?" "No-usually somebody else's kid sister,', grinned Howard. "But say, that's a good looking bag-a pres- ent?" "Mother got it for me," briefly answered John. Howard glanced down at his own worn bag--well, it had to do him two more years. It was such a good old pal that he'd hate to lose it anyhow. "VVhat d' you do all vacation?" asked John, his grouch gradually wearing off. . "Oh Iworked. My old boss treated me like a king. Guess I'm kind of a novelty," laughed Howard. "The money sure looks good to me, too." "It is nice to be industrious", agreed John. Then looking sheepish, he said, "The governor got me a new overcoat," and he looked at Howdie. "VVell, out with it-you think I'm pretty yellow to rail Father just be- cause he gives me a just racking. I know I deserve it, but darn it, I wish money didn 't slip through my fingers like water." 'Then with a glance at me ticking away as if utterly unaware of their existence he grabbed his new bag, "Come on, our train's due and we want a seat," and they left for the college which meant so much to both. its S? if ill Her pouting mouth and black eves attracted my attention at once. She looked so young. "But grandpa," this little Freshie urged, as they waited for her mother who had been'gone a long time, "why shouldn't I be like other girls? Vtlhy shouldn't I bob and curl my hair, and wear my dresses as short as the rest of the girls do J? Vllhy must I wait until I'm eighteen before I look cross-eyed at a boy 2?

P' "But don't you see you're genera- tions behind? Why, if I'd wear elothes like those mother wore when she was a girl-high shoes-oh my, it simply isn't being done this year!" "Here's your mother now,,' soothed the old man as a sweet faced woman came up. f'Well, Mary, your grown up daughter her-e's been want- ing bcaus and everything since you've been away." The mother kissed her daughter for reply, and they turned to go, but I heard her murmur as she looked to me as if for sympathy, "Alas, I've lost my little girl." fr? :Xl it And now I see my flligh School Seniors again, Seniors no more, but sweet girl graduates. ,Their iirst real parting is near. Peggy is leaving early for a western college. ' "Oh, Peggy, it doesn't seem poss- ible that you're going so far away and leaving us," sighed Grace. "To think we've all been together for four long years at High, and now .." "Please shut up, Grace," ordered Betty, "or I'll simply ruin my com- plexion weeping. You're enough to give anybody the blues. Peggy isn't really dying, dontt you know!" t'No, but seriously, kids, fri- wefve had the time of our lives at? High," said Peggy, with tears in her eyes. "I hate to break up our crowd, but you'll all write niee long letters, and Itll send you fascinating cards nieverything. VVe'll all be home on our summer vacations with so many things to tell l 77 I sounded the hour. Their bright faces lifted toward me as if I had sounded their death knell. Silence fell on the little group. "Your train is here, Peg." Jane said it as if the words were forced from her. Then suddenly Peggy was assaulted with damp kisses and fervent hugs. The last goodbyes were sobbed. Peggy disappeared, a courageous smile on her sweet face in spite of her tears. And gone were the days of happy, close eomradeship. Gone were the ehums so carefree and gay. Gone were her teachers whom she loved. Ilerclass was at last scattered. There would be new friends, new interests, and the happy youthful school days would be a golden memory. I ticked on, subdued by this part- ing, by the youthful sorrow. I listen and listen to many things and I say nothing, but oh, I tick and tiekl ' Rainy It was one of those dreary foggy rainy days that seem to drag on and on interminably-a most uninterest- ing and depressing kind of day. Poor Pauline sat dejeetedly by the win- dow of the train, her chin in' her hand, watching the dripping scenery swirl past. VVhat a poor beginning for the week-end visit with her col- lege chum,a visit that she had count- ed on so much. Oh, the rain--she yawned boredly. Ordinarily when traveling she was fascinated by the changing scenery Romance and interested in the types of people of whom she caught a brief glimpse at stations. But there was no beauty in that gloomy grey mist, and the only people to see were those hurry- ing along, hiding nnder dripping umbrellas. Oh well !-and the train slowed up at another station, Pauline revealed her state of mind in another very weary yawn. ln the most un- becoming midst of her yawn she stopped short. lieaning against the damp side of the station was an un- deniably good-looking young fellow .'Z7'L5'?H HEX -114- l Y fb? ,JALZUOJW L N l in the unbecoming midst of the same kind of a yawn. They stared at each other in surprise-then burst out laughing at the absurdity of the situ- ation. Their amusement. lasted only for a moment, for the iron-hearted train slipped swiftly away through the mist. P'auline's eyes kept their twinkle though, as she turned to look at her schedule. Raleigh was the name of the town at which she was to stop. VVhere was Raleigh? She ran her finger down the list of sta- tions---Raleigh-Oh there it was. She gasped! IVhy! llurriedly she called the conductor. "What was the name of that last station ? " she demanded. "Raleigh, miss," the conductor answered politely. "Oh dear,', she wailed, "that was where I was supposed to get off. What'll I do?" The eonduetor assured her he would let her off at the next station, where she eould get a loeal back to Raleigh. She spent a miserable hour waiting in a damp little station be- fore she finally boarded the smoky poky local tor Raleigh. It was dark when she stepped off into the rain. There was no one to meet her, and she had to start off alone. Ot all horrid nights! She detoured minia- ture ponds, waded mud, and jumped puddles, until she was soaked. VVith a reliet born ot discomfort and near- exhaustion she finally saw the lights from Eleanor's home. ' ' Poppy l ' ' cried Eleanor, horriiied, as she saw Pauline standing drip- ping on the door-step. "What in the world has happened to you? I sent Bill down to meet you, but when you didn't come I thought you had missed the train. You poor dear, eome right in immediately and dry off! Bill" she said, turning around, "here is the belated traveler, Pauline Rhodes. Poppy, this is my brother Bill." Poppy smiled, "lim so glad to meet ...,,,...... H She broke oft abruptly. "Oh!" and for no apparent reason began to laugh. The hearty laugh ot Hill joined Pauline 's. Eleanor looked stupidly from one to the other. "Well, what's the joketn she eoaxed. HWhere have you two met before?" It took a lot of persuasion on Elea- nor's part to worm the story out of them, and Poppy found it a little hard to explain why she had passed the station. 'They spent the evening betore the glowing tireplaee in uproarious de- light. Poppy and Bill found they had surprisingly many interests in eommon and they began eagerly to plan for the next few days. It rained steadily all the next day, and the next and the next, and it was still raining when Poppy hopped on the train to go baek home. But what a ditterent rain! Pauline had never had such a wonderful time in all her lite as she had those three rainy days. The rain had merely added graee to all their plans and seemed to shut them off from the rest ot' the world. She sat thinking about it all as the train moved off. Suddenly she heard-surely-her name spoken. She looked up quick- ly. Bill was standing there quite red in the taee. She eould only gasp in astonishment-"VVhy Bill!" Bill looked at her-looked away- looked baek again. "I-oh-er," he stammered, "you see I-Oh darn it, Poppy, will you?" Poppy stared at him. "Why- why, this is rather sudden don't you think,-but I-oh Bill, what can I say?" Bill caught sight ot her eyes. "Oh, -blame it on the rain," he laughed happily, as he settled down in the seat beside her. IVINIFRED MeCL UR li. . Zg5'u7Lf-CZK - -115-- Jfltzioena The Enchanted Forest A ln all t.he good king's wide domain, No other lord had won such fame, As one renowned Sir Hector Wcmod, Had earned by his great hardihood. His lands embraced both plains and hills And mountains high, with noisy rills At dusk one balmy summer's eve, The bold Sir Hector saddled Chief, And seized his bow and arrows light, To ride alone through the moonlit night. The castle grim was lett behind, With its solemn towers, stern but kind, Projecting into the dark'n.ing dome, That rambled far through pathless maze, As if to reach the stars' vast home. Yet ne'er returned the sun's bright rays. Behind the cold, forbidding crest Of the greatest. nrountain's wooded breast, The lingering shades of eriinson light, Fast were thickening into night. The moaning wind crept down the glade, And whispered through the gathering shade To 'the grizzled guardsmen, fading slow, And swaying gently to and fro. The wan stars brighten in the gloom, To see the advent of the moon, Gliding so shyly .into View Above the top of the mountain blue. And now she creeps caressing near To the great wild woods, to her so dear: And then begins the 'tattling breeze To whisper its secrets to the trees. Sir Hector rode in silent thought, And mused ot battles long since fought, Scarce giving heed whieh course he took Until old Chief splashed through a brook But now he looked into the green Along the darks-ome, gurgling stream, And 'then pursued that tiny track That led deep into the 'Forest black. Intent upon h.is quarry's trail, Atop the greatest mountain height And stooping low from his eharger's back, He studied with care the beaiiteous track That was leading him on, he knew not And in spite of reason he did not care. If he might only see his quest, He felt perhaps that it were best To do no harm to such a being Beyond the saerilege of seeing. where, He did not see the darkness pale As the sparser growth let in the light Of the climbing orb that cheers the night. His mount had paused ,in snorting fright As he suddenly saw a wondrous sight, And bold Sir Hector raised his eyes, And stared in mute and awed surprise. And now when man That from his castle he could sight, His quest had led him and his Chief Into :L dark depression deep. And .in the heart of this natural cup A fountain clear springs blithely up, But hor1'or of horrors! VVhat demons thest Hush!

Oh, it's goi11g to be exciting, for the teams are evenly matched and such rivals!" Eleanor Johnson coaxed Ann Hartley, who had not, as she said, "much time for football games." H What do Iwant to go there fort?" .Ann replied. HAH that you see is a crowd of fellows running after one poor unfortunate boy and throwing him head foremost into the mud. Then they all fall on him and stay there till some man blows a whistle, when they untangle themselves and carry a few injured off the field with the crowd cheering and calling for more. l call that cruelty, I d0n't see any sense in it. Besides, you freeze, up there in the bleachers, and you can't sit down for fear somebody will step on you. l'd rather go to a movie. ' ' H011 well, Ann, you can stand it for once. Come on, we're going to get up a crowd to go. VVe'll have a good time. If you don't like it you don't have to go again." Finally, after much coaxing, .Ann decided to go. She wore her new white sweater and a pretty little velvet toque that could not, however hard it tried, prevent a few irresist- ible brown curls from blowing around her face. She had long rib- bons of maroon and white, and ear- ried a thin black eane with stream- ers of the same color, for she said she "wouldn't be outdone by any- body, even if she didn't like the game." At the field, Ann and her crowd chose seats in the middle of the stands and near enough the front to see every play. lt was early yet, but in a short time the crowd began to come in by twos and threes and then in great throngs. All wore school colors, all carried some article of the noise-producing variety, whistles, tin horns, harsh rasping ratchets. The noise increased as the minutes passed, until with a glad cry of "Here they come", the students rose to their feet as one person and wildly cheered while their team ran onto the field. After this outburst they settled down and waited in suspense for the kickoff. At last the signal came. The home team kicked the ball. VVith the first minute of action the crowd broke loose, and as Ann looked about her at the happy excited faces and the ever moving pageant of life and color she thought, " Well, surely if a game of football can make them feel like that, it must be worth some- thing, anywayf' Suddenly Eleanor clutched her arm in a frenzy of excitement. t'Look, look," she cried, Hwelre going to make a touchdown." Ann looked but without much in- terest. Then something wonderful happened. VVhen Ann saw that her friend Billy had the ball and was running toward the goal with about six others trying to trip him, she woke up. Hflh, run, run, Billy, ' ' she shrieked, Uhurry, you can make it. Only a little more, a little more." And Ann jumped up and down on the bleach- ers and waved her be-ribboncd cane frantically. "Well, that 's all very well,'y said Eleanor, "but I know my arm will be black and blue tomorrow where you grabbed it, -- in"-she added significantly, U- in your excitement over a football game." The game Went on with the home team finally wresting a hard-earned 11:1 3,11 gg at .t --117- ,JALZoana victory from the opposing team, and when at the end the tired boys were being repaid for their bruises and outs by joyous shouts from a thou- sand throats, Ann turned to her friend and said, "Say Eleanor, let's come to the game next week. XVill you?" Eleanor, eharitably refraining from saying what she would like to have said, answered, "Why surely, Ann, I wouldn't miss it!" DOROTHY BRUBAKFIR. N , Playing the Game In the struggle and strife of the game of life, When there's everything yet to do, When your signal is ealled and you get the ball, What kind of a fellow are you? Though the odds are great, and fickle is fate, And the goal is far away, Though your line won't hold, and the foe is bold, What kind of a game will you play? Will you smash right .in with vigor and vim, And try to down the foeg Will you do your best in the greatest test, VVhat kind of iight will you show? When to reach your aim and gain your fame You -only fail by an ineh, I ask you then, in this world of men, What kind of a game is a cinch? When the game is o'e1', and life's no more, And everything has been done, Then men will ask, "Did he do his task?" And not if you lost or won. CHARLES FARIS. 5 i G -118- Jfl Lloona .:.

It is supervised by Pro- fessor Harold Compton, a student of the Cincinnati and the New England Conservatories of Music. During lVlr. Compton's first year in Altoona, he organized an orches- tra, a band, a girls' glee club, and a chorus of eighty voices. 'The orches- tra this first year consisted of twen- ty-one pieces, but by the end of the year it numbered about fifty. The next year, 1920, membership in- creased to about eighty, and in 1924 the orchestra consisted of eighty-six members. This year the orchestra has a mem- bership ot over a hundred, which constitutes a complete symphonic in- strumentation. Of course some de- sirable effects are impossible to ob- tain with so large a group, so in or- der to remedy this difficulty, the di- rector has divided the orchestra. The Symphony Orchestra with a member- ship of forty-two is a division ot the big orchestra and represents the best talent available in the lligh School. These players are selected from the big orchestra on a basis of skill. Vilith this group the director is able to work out more delicate points of technique and interpretation. This orchestra also plays quite difficult music. Effects can be obtained with this group that are impossible with the large orchestra. It is the ulti- mate aim ot' the conductor to eventu- ally produce the highest type ot music possible with a High School orchestra. The recent organization of the orchestra made Eugene Siegel, Presi- dent, Norman Campbell, Vice Presi- dent, Mabel Glass, Secretary, and Robert Menchey, Treasurer. Under this administration the group is pro- gressing nicely. Arrangements for several socials and a picnic are being made. The annual orchestral concert was given this year by the combined orchestras of the Senior High School, the Roosevelt High School, and the Lincoln Buildings, on Friday even- ing, February 6, in the new Junior High School. ,A large and apprecia- tive audience was in attendance to hear the largest orchestra that ever presented a program in Altoona, be- ing made up of more than two hun- dred members.

M. Stults. This cantata was broad- cast from the Roosevelt Junior lligh School, Sunday afternoon, Decen1ber 21. The complete cantata is based on the Kingship of our Lord. The text is taken entirely from the Old and New Testaments with the one exception of a single stanza. HHark! The Herald Angels Sing" is inter- twined with the Angelic Chorus as recorded in St. Luke. The cantata is arranged in three parts: 1. HA King is Promised", 2. "The Incar- nation", 3. "A King is Born". The complete program follows: Cantata-"The King Cometh", R. M.

The Gypsy Rover is in three acts and is woven around the character of Rob, later known as Sir Gilbert lflowe, of linglisli nobility. Rob,when an infant. is stolen by his nurse, Meg, who later becomes the wife of Marte, a gypsy. Rob grows to manhood among the gypsies believing Meg and Marto to be his parents. It happens that one day while Lady Constance Martindale is riding with her fiance, Lord Craven, they become lost in the woods, and finally wander to the gypsy camp. Here Constance and Rob meet. and fall in love at iirst sight. Craven of course objects to Rob's attentions to Con- stance. llowever, in a rare comedy scene with Marto and Sinfo he is made to tell Sir George, who has come in search of Constance, that Rob is a very charming fellow. In Act H Rob goes to the home of Constance and serenades her. ,They plan to elope but are overheard by Craven who informs Sir George and makes plans to capture Rob. Rob is captured and thrown into prison.

Constance has remained true to her love and when Rob returns to England he woos and wins her for his wife. As Rob says, "The good fairies have led me to the beautiful country after all, and our story, Con- stance, can end in the proper way 'They lived happily ever after' ". There are pretty love affairs be- tween Nina and Captain Jerome and between Zara and Sinfo, also many comedy scenes involving Sinfo and Marte. The Boys' Glee Club This organization has been more or less neglected until this year, when it was organized with a mem- bership of forty voices. The accom- panists are llarold Bingman and William Ritchey. 'This Glee Club has planned to give a minstrel show the latter part of April. In addition to giving a real minstrel show, they will sing at Commencement part of a dramatic cantata entitled "On Shore and Sea", by Arthur Sullivan. As a subject not inappropriate to a celebration intended for the honor a11d advancement of the HArts of Peace," the theme of this eantata is the sorrows and separations neces- sarily ineidental to war. A dramatic form has been chosen lending itself best to musical expressions. The action has been centered in the time when constant conflict was waged between the Saracen settle- ments on the shores of Northern Africa and the Christian powers of the Mediterranean, particularly the Genoese. The scene changes from the shore at the seaport of Genoa to the sea Cfirst on board a Genoese vessel and later on board a Moorish galleyj and back to the shore again. The cantata opens with the Heet weighing anchor to the joyous song of the sailors and lament of wives, mothers, sisters and sweethearts left sorrowing on the shore. The scene then changes to the sea. The thoughts and prayers of the sailors go back to the loved ones left behind, and invoke for them the pro- tection of Our Lady, Star of the Sea. Months pass and the scene changes again to the shore. The fleet so long and anxiously looked for appeals on the horizon, and the crowd, headed by the maiden whose fortune the cantata follows, liocks to the wharf to greet its triumphant entry. But the price of the triumph must be paid, her loved one has been either captured or slain for he is absent. She gives expression to her desola- tion amid the sympathizing sorrow of her companions. Her lover, how- ever, is not slain, but is toiling at the oar as a slave under the lash of his Moorish captors. While those on shore are celebrating their tri- umph a11d mourning for their lost ones, the captive in whom we are most interested plans an uprising against the rovcrs, secures a key to the chain to which all the prisoners are fastened and tells them to strike for their liberty. They rise against their captors, master the galley and steer homeward. On entering the portthey are welcomed bytheirloved ones. As a result, the sorrow of separation is turned to rejoieingg and the cantata ends with a chorus expressing the blessedness of Peace, and inviting all nations to this, her Temple.

Their ae- companist is Sarah Tobin. ,They have sung in chapel several times. 'The tllee Club has added several new numbers to their repertoire this year, among them being: f'The Nightsongw by Rio. "The Whippoorwill" by Hahn. f'To a XVild Rose" hy Maellowell. "The Uhilian Folk-song". Near Commencement time the tllee t'lub will sing a dramatic can- tata entitled "Fays of the Floating Islands" by Paul, Bliss. The theme of this eantata like many other musi- cal themes draws exceedingly on the imagination. The story opens with an evening amid the floating islands in the South. The fairies are all dancing in the moonlight to the eeaseless music of the cricket band, when three fays, wearied with the dance, run to the waterls edge and there espy a coloweb reaching out through the dark to a neighboring island. Seeking rest, they hurry across onthe gossamer web and sing of the beauties of the new island. Suddenly a storm arisesg clouds hide the moon, and the fairies become frightened. But the storm quickly passes, the moon shines out, and upon its silvery beam the fairies tip- toe back to their home and the wild dance goes on. The "The old order ehangeth, Yiehling place to the new." 7 1"1'll1'fysml. 'The first band that ever played under the Maroon and White was composed of about sixteen pieces. This band was organized in 1917 under the direction of Mr, George Lehman. A When Professor Compton was ap- pointed director of music in the Al- toona lligh School, he immediately reorganized the band, which was an arduous task. The band was con- fronted with the problem of the lack ol' instruments, but the" orchestra came to the rescue and gave several eoneerts to raise funds with which to purchase instruments. As a result the band has grown from lti musi- Band cians in 1917 to 65 in 1924. In 1922 our band was considered one of the finest in Central Pennsylvania. lt was then composed offifty-six pieces. The first parade in which our band was represented was in 1920 when they took part in the Memorial Day parade, and since then they have had much experience in the art of parad- ing. The first parade in which the band took part this year was the De- fense Day parade on September the twelfth. 'The band also led several student parades before the football games last fall. Students will always remember the fine showing the band made at the Harrisburg Tech game when they actually made the Tech stands sitfup and take notice. Three eheers for our band! May it con- tinue to carry on the good work. -5 a -124- 3 9 ,, -..ks ,-'-vnv W, '1 .v I -- Y ff"'A- .- V ggi' ii, - L 1, 1 -4 ,A --125- ay E-g VX fQ EQ gw. iff' EA 1'N-4 if' STOWN GAME JOHN E TH AT BAND OUR !

For the past twenty years the Maroon and White has participated in basketball and within more recent years in track and football. During the greater part of our athletic history our teams, especially track and basket- ball, have enjoyed a fair portion of prosperity, but within recent years the 'progress of athletics has been greatly retarded because of the lack of proper facilities. 'To remedythis situation the Board of Education purchased grounds at Maple Avenue and Twenty-fourth Street and built the High School Athletic Field, which was used for the first time during the football season last fall. As soon as our finances permit we intend to make some necessary improvements with a View toward making our athletic field more fit to take care of the out- door sports. Vilith the completion of the new Junior High School a well equipped gymnasium, seating 2,000 spectators, was placed at the dis- posal of High School athletics. Be- sides ably taking care of High School players and fans, this gymnasium will be of inestimable value in devel- oping future athletes for the team. The .year just passed was in many respects superior to previous years. Although the football season was only fair, our three basketball teams were returned winners in twenty-nine out of thirty-seven con- tests, and prospects are very bright for a record breaking track team. The year has been by tar the most profitable financially in the history of our school. The gradual awakening otAltoona High to the importance of athletics has been further demonstrated by an increased school spirit. as shown through the cheering. The school wishes herewith to acknowledge the work of cheer leaders Billy Green, Ivan Fleck, and George Beech. E :v ' 1,4-flfljaj-Z --128- Athletic Leaders RICHARD fDick5 MADISON Head Coach 'tNow get in there a11d iight." 'To the casual observer Dick appears to be the most disinterested spectator at the game. However, those who have been participants in the little conferences held in the "Inner R-ooml' before each game, will ad- mit that the above words sound familiar, for during these moments he is an entirely different Dick. Although he takes victory and de- feat without complaint, there is no one who likes to win better than Dick. After the disappointments of a rather mediocre football season he resolutely devoted himself to the task of producing a winning basket- ball team. How well he succeeded is now a matter of general knowl- edge. Suffice it to say that nothing could have been more pleasing to Dick than the two hard fought vie- tories over his home town of Lan- caster. Dick is more than a coach-he is a true gentleman. Moreover he has the satisfaction of knowing he has given his best for athletics in Altoona High. . . , Student Manager "Where's Cuppylll' Had you vis- ited most any of our athletic teams during practice this year you would have been certain to hear this cheery remark, for Cuppy and his liniment bottle are very popular after a stiff practice session. Guppy will tell you that the job of student manager is no soft snap, but we will tell you what he won't, that he fills it very capably. The write- nps in the Tribune are a product of Cuppy's facile pen, although the sig- nature, tf. F. Rothroek, is a foreign name to most of us. It is contended by some that he is deficient in the art of rubbing, but be it said to his credit that his faithfulness to duty makes up for these shortcom- ings. There is one thing, however, that we can't fathom, and that is, why sueh a husky fellow enlisted in the ranks of the Clommercialites. 'Possibly he thought the Commercial Palace needed a guardian. CHARLES qcuppyb ROTHROCK I , L -1, -129-- .Jfllloofm L GEORGE qretep BEECH Basketball Captain Meet Pete Beech, three year basket ball man and Captain of this year's quintet. George becomes a streak of greased lightning when he dons a basketball suit and is about as easy to stop. He led this year's tive through the best season an Altoona High court team has had for several years. From the beginning of his career three years ago he has been a star. His playing alone many times Won the day for Altoona. He had a bit of hard luck last year, a game leg keeping him out of the play for a while. Aside from athletics George is a good fellow as everyone will testify. Here's hoping Pete will always be as successful in everything he does as he has been in basketball. Football Captain Bob is Altoona lligh's premier athlete, being an all sport man and a big push in all athletic affairs. Start- ing his eareer in sports soon after his entrance to High School, he has played on almost every team Altoona has put out. lndeed so many times has he won his letter that he hasg al- most enough to start a new alphaibet. Bob is greatest honor probably came as captain of the 1924 football team of which he was the main cog. His playing on the basketball team has always been above par and many times has he been listed as a guard on an all star state team. As a track man he has very few equals in the weight events. VVick is very popular at school being a member of the Student Coun- cil. Bob is a pleasant, reliable, de- pendable fellow. He expects to go to college next fall having several good offers in view. VVe are expecting great things of him and do not an- ticipate being disappointed. Good luck to you Bob.

The records show that the team emerged from the hardest football schedule in the history of the school with four victories, five defeats, and one tie game. ,The Maroon and White scored 220 points to 165 by our opponents. The team opened the season with four straight victories by decisive scores over Roaring Spring, Holli- daysburg, Mt. Union and Clearfield. Signs of decline were evident, how- ever, when the team lost to WI11dbG1', and then came Harrisburg Tech. Tech's overwhelming victory not only shattered our hard earned pres- tige but crippled our team for the remainder of the season. No more triumphs were credited to the plucky Altoona boys, although the team man- aged to hold Tyrone's undefeated warriors to a tie. VVe admit the superiority of Lock Haven and pos- sibly Johnstown, but we deserved a better fate than to be unable to dc- feat Tyrone and VVilliamsport. A. H. S. SMOTHERS ROARING SPRING IN ITS FIRST GAME A. H. S.-60 Roaring Spring-0 'The Altoona High School football team made a brilliant showing in its first game of the season by defeating the Roaring Spring High School by a score of 60-0. The Maroon and VVhite team started off well, gaining power as the game progressed, and in the last quarter scored almost at will. The Baretown boys must be given credit for their pluck and sportsmanship, though Altoona, with Captain Bob VVieker hitting their line, gave them little chance for scoring. To the rest of the team goes much credit for their admirable team work and smooth execution of difficult line plays. In the last quarter Altoona overwhelmed Baretown, and scored thirty-four points, VVicker making a sensational ninety yard run. HOLLIDAYSBURG DROPS ONE A. .I-I.

VVhite sent the ,lfollidayslnirg boys back home with a defeat of 43-0. Through the entire game Altoona scored easily. Even in the last per- iod with the entire second squad on the field, a touchdown was made. In this game, as in the last, the team deserved the highest praise for both its offensive and defensive work. The line was like a stone wall and the baekfield resembled a battering ram. Altoona kept the upper hand during the entire game, not once al- lowing the .Burg to come within scoring distance. More remarkable is the fact that Altoona allowed her opponent only three scattered first downs. When the whistle blew Al- toona was on the way to another touchdown. POWDERTOWN DIDN'.T HAVE THE POWDER A. H. S.-88 Mt. Union-0 Altoona overwhelmed Mt. Union on Oetober ll by a score of 88-0, the highest score piled up on any team for many years. The boys from Huntingdon County were completely outclassed. Altoona scored touchdowns with- out trouble exeept in the first period. The team counted in all thirteen touchdowns, The entire second squad was sent in the last quarter, main- taining the fast pace of the regulars. ,The only scoring done in the first quarter was when Wicker received a punt and ran 50 yards for a touch- down. After this the team picked up some speed and showed their riv- als some real football. The half ended with a score of 33-O in favor of Altoona. The Altoona huskies came back in the second half with a bang, rolling up a total of 55 points. In the last half Altoona blocked punts, inter- cepted passes, and made long runs for touchdowns. Mt. Union must be praised for her courage and good sportsmanship. ALTOONA NABS FOURTH VICTORY A. H. S.-20 Clearfield-0 Before the largest crowd of the present season the Altoona High School football team defeated the Clearfield High team by a score of 20 to 0. This game, the fourth played on the High School athletic field, was the hardest fought battle of the sea- son up to that time. Clearfield stub- bornly resisted the Altoona efforts to pile up the score. Altoona made her first points when the team marched the ball down the field, Wicker taking it over the goal line. Altoona kicked off to start the game. Clearfield got the ball but failed to make their gain. Altoona fumbled and Clearfield received the ball. The first quarter ended with neither side scoring. Altoona came back strong in the second quarter. They received the ball on the sixty yard line and took it down the field for a touchdown. The half ended with a score of 7-0. After the opening of the second half Conroy blocked a punt and the ball was rushed from the thirty yard line for a touchdown. In this quar- ter Sehuchart intercepted a pass and raced sixty yards for a touchdown. No points were made on either side in the last quarter, and the game ended 20-0. ALTOONA DROPS ITS FIRST ONE A. H. S.-3 Windber-7 In their first game away from home this season on October 25, the Altoona High team was handed its first defeat of the season by Wiiid- ber, 7-3. Altoona played its poorest football. Instead of being on the offensive as they had been in the first four games, they played the de- fensive. The whole Altoona team was off form. The line was like a sieve and the backfield seemed to have lost its usual pep. All that kept the Windberites from a large score was their fumbles. -- 136 - .Jflllowra M During the first quarter neither side scored, both doing a lot of fumbling and making no gain. In the second quarter Altoona got the ball on Wll1dbCF,S twenty-yard line and tried for a field goal. The kick was good for three points and the first half ended 3-0. In the last half Windber put on some steam and made an easy touch- down. Through the rest of the game Windber kept the ball in the Al- toona territory, always 'threatening to score. HARRISBURG TECH .TOO HEAVY FOR ALTOONA HIGH A. H. S.-0 Harrisburg Tech--61 On Saturday, November 1, Altoona played the strong Harrisburg Tech team. Although Altoona was beaten by the heavier and more experienced team to the score of 61 to 0,they won an everlasting moral victory. The grit and fight and bull dog tenacity displayed by our boys was remark- able. Not for one moment did Al- toona give up its fight, even to the last second. The "never say die', spirit not only filled the team, but permeated the student body which did not allow the cheering to dimin- ish one iota during the gallant stand of our boys. fTech scored a total of nine touch- downs, three in the first quarter, one in the second, three in the third, and one in the fourth. Once only did Altoona threaten to score. Through several clever passes and a Tech penalty, Altoona gained the opponents' ten-yard line, butwas unfortunate enough to lose the ball at that opportune moment. AGAIN WE BOW T0 THE LOCK HAVEN CHAMPS A. H. S.-0 Lock Haven-43 Our own Maroon and White foot- ballers, badly crippled by the loss of Spear, Whis'tler, Hess, Crist and Ab- ernathy, were once more defeated by the Lock Haven State champions who rushed through for a total of six touchdowns. Our team had but six regular players in the lineup when they went on the field, and that was not enough to hold Lock Hav- en's fast backs. In the second quar- ter Captain Bob Wickei' went out when the bad cut which he suffered in the Harrisburg game was broken open. This further weakened the team. 'The team fought a hard battle throughout the entire game. Shing- ler played the greatest game he has ever played, intercepting passes and making beautiful tackles. Time and again Lock Haven plowed through for touchdowns when our team was unable to stop them. Only once did ,Altoona threat- en to score, and then they barely missed a field goal. ALTOONA AND TYRONE PLAY TO A STANDSTILL A. H. S.--6 Tyrone-6 On November 15, Altoona clashed in combat with the undefeated Ty- rone team. Play was close through- out the game, no one having a decid- ed advantage at any time. Altoona played a wonderful game, in fact, the best since the Clearfield win. All the backs made consistent gains through the Tyrone line. Al- toona's line worked well against the opponents' baekfield men. Early in the first quarter, Tyrone pulled a. surprise when .Ammerman broke through for a thirty yard run and a touchdown. 'They failed to make the extra point. By hard drilling line plunges, Al- toona pushed over a touchdown in the second quarter, but missed the extra. point. The second half was without a score, leaving the score 6-6 and Al- toona the satisfaction of having held such a strong team as Tyrone to a tie. W 'T r Zfifii - 137 JALZOOJILIL JOHNSTOWN WINS A. H. S.-0 Johnstown-31 Plowing through our line for five touchdowns Johnstown Iligh snowed Altoona under in their annual struggle here, by a score of 31-0. The heavy Johnnies using the famous huddle system, tore through Altoo- nals line almost at will. Altoona fought hard but was unable to make much gain through Johnstown's stone wall defense. Altoona's whole team fought with fury, but was unable to do much in the way ot scoring. Altoona played straight football, not trying any trick plays. 'Three of the opponents' touch- downs came in the first quarter. In the second and third quarters Altoo- na braced up and held the Jawns to no score. The iinal period saw Johnstown plunge through Altoona's wornout line for two more scores, giving Johnstown the game by a score of 31 to 0. w1LL1A1v1sPoR'r WINS TURKEY DAY GAME A. H. S.-0 Williamsport-17 Playing against the terrific odds of having Captain Bob and a few other first string men on the casualty list, the Altoona High "mud heroes" dropped the annual. Turkey Day battle to the Millionaires of VVil- liamsport by a score of 17 to 0. Not- withstanding the fact that Wicker was out of the game, our fellows put up a great scrap and fought hard for the school. The aerial passes of Good of VVil- liamsport were the chief factor in our losing the game. In the first quarter, as a result of a pass by Good, Williamsport scored a touch- down. A little later the quarter- back added three points by a field goal. Then again in the final period Mutehart received a pass 'from Good on the twenty-two yard line and dashed through a broken, field -for the final points of the game.

By a process of gradual elimination this number was reduced to twenty-two, of which number the first ten formed the varsity team. The season proved to be the most successful that Altoona High has en- joyed in recent years. The team won fifteen games and lost but six. Only two games were lost on 'the home floor and the team numbered among its triumphs double victories over Johnstown and Lancaster. ln the first game of the season the Maroon and NVhite boys, playing in a new gymnasium, with a new ball, and sporting new uniforms and a new lineup, failed to pierce the de- fense of the Williamsport visitors and went down to a 15-8 defeat. Close guarding prevailed during the game, the visitors showing the ex- perience aequired in four previous games. The Billtown reverse served to put the Altoona boys on their mettle and the following evening a changed lineup swamped Abe Sharadin's 'Ford City team by a 41-12 score. Hoff- man., who was sent to forward, and Captain Beech, were the leading scorers. The week following Ford City's rout, Indiana Normal lost to Altoona for the sixth consecutive time. 'The final score was 28-18. Tyrone 's cagers were our next vis- itors and they returned to the Cen- tral tfity with a 33-10 defeat. Hoff- man further justified the faith that shifted him to forward by his heavy scoring. Hur second and last home defeat was administered by Clearfield after a hard iight. The Maroon passers -140- fl fought desperately to overtake the visitors' lead, but the final whistle showed a 22-20 loss. Then came Lancaster. Our oppon- ents,wh0 modestly styled themselves the Red Tornadoes, blew into the Junior lligh gymnasium with a ffash of red, but after forty minutes of fast basketball they sifted away like a mild evening breeze, a. little blue. Pete Beech's sixteen points helped materially to pile up the 28-I5 seore. The first game away from home was our second loss to Clearfield. The Altoona boys led at half-time 2l-14, but during the seeond half' Clearfield's strong offense literally swept our boys off their feet and they returned home on the short end of a 35-25 seore. The team next invaded Tyrone for a return game with the Central City lads. Tyrone offered great opposi- tion on the home court, but Millerys field goal in the last half minute of play deeided the issue, 21-20. It was Altoona's nineteenth consecutive win over Tyrone. Un the night following the Tyrone game the tall and rangy Windberites paid us a visit. During the first half the Coaltowners bewildered our boys with a strange eriss-cross system of passing whieh, with the aid of sev- eral long shots, gave them a slight early lead. llowever, Altoona soon overcame this margin, to win 28-18. "And the Jawns also ranly' Un Friday, February l3, the Maroon and White boys won their thirteenth victory over Johnstown by a score of 35-20. The Mountain City lads led by Captain Beeeh, were in tip-top form, and after the first half the Johnnies never had a chance. The defense also was airtight. Harris, J0lll1Sl0Wl1,S dusky idol, got but a single field goal. The night following our decisive victory at Jolmstown our team re- ceived a set-back at Windber. In this game Altoona's usual second half' rally failed to materialize, and Wind- ber avenged their defeat in this city by a 28-20 score. The worst defeat of the season was suffered at VVilliamsport on Feb- ruary 20. The team started well, but soon lost its enthusiasm and the bot- tom dropped out of the defense. The Millionaires have a team to be proud of, but should never have won by a 43-20 margin. Staging a eome-baek after their ig- nominious defeat at Vt'illiamsport,the Coaeh Madison quintet overwhelmed Vliestmont, 42-13. The Vtlestmont aggregation looked good in practice, but after the first five minutes of' play, the issue was never in doubt. February 27 found our team in the land of the Red Tornado. After a vigorous skirmish with Lancaster's Redmen we returned home with their sealps again dangling at our belts. Beeeh's seven field goals played an important part in this 34-32 win. In a heetie contest, played before 2,000 fans in the Junior High gym- nasium, Altoona High again downed its friendly enemies from the Friend- ly City. The visitors gave our boys a. real scare but when the team ral- lied during the seeond half and forged ahead to win, 23-2l, our joy knew no bounds. Renovo's speedy passers offered plenty of opposition the next night, but as usual Beech'sshootingbrought us to the fore and the final tally was 29-24. ln the first round of the Distriet 6 P. I. A. A. elimination series our team conquered Lewistown 21-17 on the Juniata College Hoor at Hunting- don. Altoona had a commanding lead at half time but the Mountain League champs greatly reduced this advantage during the second half. Two days later, in an elimination game played on the Tyrone HY" tioor, Altoona High won over Phil- --1-1'l-- JALLQOJM X, ipsburg High, 12-9. it was our sixth straight victory and we advanced to the District 6 finals. Our championship hopes, however, were rudely shattered the following night when Lock Haven's giants de- feated our boys in the district finals, 21-14. Lock Haven started off like a whirlwind, and the half ended 1.6-4. Our team fought courageously during the second half, in whichthey outscored their larger opponents, 10-5, but the winner's early lead was too much for them. The last two games of the season were week-end victories over our old friends The Burghers, by scores of 36-25 and 30-18. Goodfellow, Wick- er and Hess playing thcirlast basket- ball games for A. H. S. gave a good account of themselves in both. Throughout 'the season the brilliant work of Captain Beech at forward was a feature. Hoffman and Miller proved capable running mates. Good- fellow at center has few equals when it comes to jumping and managed also to pour in his quota of baskets. His equally dependable understudy was Flickinger. 'The guarding of NVicker, Hess. and Focht was mainly responsible for the low scores of our opponents, the latter 'two showing considerable ability as scorers.

Aside from the daily task of losing to the Varsity this team, the Reserves, many of whom will be in the regular lineup next year, won five games during the season themselves. The opening game of the season was an 18-15 win over the Jerry Crist Five, 21- fast independent team with a11 enviable record. The Junior Me- chanics No. 376,winners of the Civic- Mereantile League, were the next victims, 16-11. Martinsburg High felt the ax in the third game, 47-18. In the preliminary to the Johnstown game, the Hollidaysburg Reserves were completely outclassed, 40-14, and the final game was won 18-17 after a hectic struggle, from the Swastika Club. Decker, who was later promoted to the Varsity, Faris, and the Brink- ley twins, were the leading scorers on the olfense, while the guarding of McKague, Wilson, and M. Wicker left little to be desired. The scoring of the Reserve players follows: G. Fd. F1. T. Decker, f .,....,.,,,..,...,...... 2 11 7 29 Faris, c ............,.............. 4 9 3 21 H.

From then on they had seven straight victories until the team met Vtlilliamsport at Vtlillianisport. Here the fast scrappy Altoona team sutfered defeat for the first time, to the score of 19-12. Still feeling this defeat, and that their record was broken, the girls put up a stiff iight at Lock Haven Normal. This game ended in a tie 26-26, but at the end of the extra five minute period the Maroon and Mlhitc lassics had a 29-27 victory tucked away to bring back to Altoona. The next week, on Friday the Thirteenth, the girls travelled to Philipsburg only to bring home another game, with a 24-8 score. Then followed the last week of practice, and all was made ready to receive the only team who had spoiled their record - Williams- port. Saturday evening, March 21, the Altoona High maidens put up a fine game, but the visitors succeeded in surpassing the A. H. S. sextet, 18-16. VVith tliesc two games the only losses, Miss Eyre and the team consider the season very successful. The team played the otlieial girls' rules, with two forwards, a center, side center, and two guards. For these rules the floor is divided into three spaces in which are the for- wards, centers, and guards respec- tively. Only the forwards can shoot, while the rest of the team plays the passing game. Christine Klesius, captain and forward on 'the team, headed the list with 72 goals and 36 out of 94 foul shots. Parthenia Hud- nall, her running mate, was second with 48 goals and 1 foul. Louise Bard, a substitute, took third place with 6 goals. The forwa.rds were assisted by the center, Marian Neff, and side center, Mary Henderson. Marian did good work at jumping center with Mary who thought her middle name was "Fight", Wlieii. it comes to guards, Eleanor Wilsori, Beatrice Ayres, and Anna Alloway ean't be beat. Much credit must be given to every player because each did her best for the team. The following players were par- ticipants in all eleven games: Cap- tain Klesius, Parthenia Hudnall, Marian Neff, Mary Henderson, Elea- nor NVilson and Anna Alloway. Oth- er players who saw service in the games were: Louise Bard, nine, Beatrice Ayers and Aunda Slack, eight, "Mid' 'Miller, seven ,' 'Midge " Miller, six, Eleanor Steckm an, three , and Thella Slick, one. --146-' Jyqlloona X, TRACK LETTERMEN, 192-L + X3 V1 F 3 S E?
