UR High School days pass'
quickly. Soon we shall be
graduated and others will
5 take our places. In the yearsyto
come perhaps new friends, new in-
? terests, will almost blot out for us
to the dearest memories of our school
p days. Then if by chance this book
helps us to recall the faces of our
k classmatesg a memory grown dim
' with the passing of the yearsg helps
is i to bring back the days of our youth
when our hearts were happy and
i our ambitionshigh, then we shall
know this faulty work of ours to
have been not wholly useless and

f 0 z Classes Were Separate
5 The class to be graduated June 10
includes 40 mid-yearn students who
completed their studies at the end ot
the first semester and 260 straight
.senior students who finish their
courses this month. These -clames
have pursued their studies ,entirely
separately through-out the entire
As is well-known, no social activ-
ities are allowed in the school before
the end of the first semester. As the
mid-year students finished their
school work at the end of the ni-st
semester, it was decided at the organ-
ization of the class 1n'Janua.ry to ad-
mit the mid-year students to the or-
ganization in order to permit them to
,participate in the senior entertain-
ments and social functions:
This decision was reached ,only
after much., discussion ands some
clashing, members of the 'class said
last night. Q A
N Averages Are Withheld
Since the action taken at- the'Jan-
uary meeting, the classes have been
called one and there is but one honor
a-oll,' which in a sense is fair, some
members of the class say, but others
point out that the June senior classof
260' members is without a valedic-
torian, a. salutatorian' or a third
honor student, as the nr t three on
the announced' honor roll arenmem-
bers of the mid-year class.
-Another point of dissatisfaction was
stressed when it was rumored that no
averages would be made public, even
to the. students, until after 'com-
mencement. Members of, .the class
and' parents of the pupils called at-
tention ,tos the mix-up of last year
whichlcaused a. sensation in the city,
and resulted in a change in the vale-
Miss Virginia.'Leader, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Howard E. Leader, 623
Fourth avenue, is valedictorian, ac-'
cording to the honor roll. She is 18
years old and graduates in the clas-
sical course. She has attended the
Wright, Stevens, Jefferson and Cen-
tral Grammar schools in her elemen-
tary studies. Miss Leader, has
:served as. an officer of the Girls
League during the past -three terms.
She was a, member of vthe. xnld-year

The Dean's Own Page
To the members of the graduating class of 1926,
I wish to submit the following for your daily
"I will meet the dawn with a brave and con-
fident enthusiasm, a smile upon my lips and a song
in my heart. I will not become excited or dis-
couraged because there are shadows on the ground,
or clouds gathering on the horizon.
"I will do my work as I have never done it
before, with willing hand and alert brain. I will
put something of myself into it before it leaves my
hand, for as I work, so am I.
'AI will look out upon the whole universe with
contentment and pride-glad for the day and proud
that I am here. As 1ny feet search the uncertain
paths of Earth, I will not forget to look up at the
great, limpid skies and at their stars. I shall grow
in understanding this day.
"In short, this day'that is mine, I will do my
very best. I will not hurry, or worry, or fret-
I will just move on to the eventide knowing, that
as I cross this tiny bit of eternity, I shall make
progress! And, at night, I will laugh, and play,
and sing, and sleep and dream, that I may do even
better on the morrow l"
XYith very kind regards and good wishes, I am

I-Iere'5 to Our prggident Ray Hgff- Virglllia is SL1l:llClCH'E pI'0Of that
U man! Ray is one gf the feyv Whom good goods come in small packages.
we look upon as being worthy of
the highest and best life has to offer.
He believes in being happy and
cheerful under all circumstances.
Although he is rather quiet in
school, he is a cyclone atbasketball.
.lust watch him play sometime. Ray
is "a true son of A. H. S."
Do you see that little girl with
the brown curls, the one who looks
as though she had just stepped out
of a story book? That is Gladys.
This quiet young lady who has not
yet succumbed to the fashion of
bobbed hair, is our vice-president.
That is sufficient proof that we all
like her. Then, who can forget
Gladys as the heroine of The Gypsy
Rover? Can she sing? XVell, I
should say so.
Mabel is our secretary, but that
isn't all. She's a fine student and
has won several medals for her
work. That shows that she is a
good student. She types the work
for the Mountain Echo and is
always glad to help a friend. VVe
wanted a secretary who had all of
these qualities. No wonder we
selected Mabel for the office.
VVho is that tall, handsome young
man collecting money from the
Seniors and cheerfully scribbling on
a scrap of cardboard as if he did it
every day? It is Ernie Linker col-
lecting class dues. He belongs to
the Industrial Class and surely is a
hustler. A whizz, a cheery word,
and he is speeding off down the hall
to confer on some problem. Ernie
is particularly gifted in wending his
way about the corridor at Friday
afternoon dances. Everyone is
pleased to have him in the class of
'26, for he is an all round good
She is a good student and very
popular. W'hy shouldn't we like
her? W'ould you like to meet some-
one who will help you if she pos-
sibly can? Thatis Virginia. Would
you like to know a- girl who is pretty
and popular and a good student?
That is Virginia. Pretty, witty,
gritty, that's Virginia. Look up her
john has accomplished something
which seemed impossible. He has
taken charge of the Annual without
losing his temper. Such an accom-
plishment is not to be disregarded.
How many of us could have en-
dured the thousand and one ques-
tions John has continually been
asked? Still, he doesn't look care-
worn-not a bit. He's one of the
most popular boys in school. VVe
all are familiar with the words "Be
yourselff' John seems to have taken
these for a motto. No wonder he
is a general favorite. E
Who's Who wouldn't be complete
without Helen. She is the little
brown-eyed blond who is always
happy. And who wouldn't be happy
if she were as popular as Helen?
She was equally charming as the
heroine in Daddy Long Legs, as a
visitor in Come Out of the Kitchen,
and as the stenographer in A Pair
of Sixes. In the last play, both busi-
ness partners wanted the stenog-
rapher at the same time. When you
know Helen, can you blame them?
If you see a tall blonde chap go
through the halls, looking as if he
were on some business mission, you
will know that it is our business
manager, Bill Lingenfelter. He is
one of the 'men who has made our

Annual a success. But Bill isn't The Craine Twins
0 only a business lllilll. He shines in Twins Should not be Separated,
social activities. And can he dance?
Ask a11y girl. You j11st can't help
School wouldn't seem right with-
out VVillie. lf some activity needs
help, the natural thing to do is to
call on Willie. This senior, who is
neither lofty in height nor very dig-
nified i11 manner-perhaps that's
why we like her so well-is captain
of our girls' basketball team. As a
member of the program committee
VVillie did much to make our socials
the success they were. Her efforts
for the Annual have been untiring.
In short, VVillie is the kind of girl
who is not afraid to help the class
and who, by doing so, wins the
friendship of everyone.
One Senior Alley in school is par-
ticularly well lighted by the pres-
ence of Paul Smith. Paul will long
be remembered-after the pages of
this book are yellow with age---as
the business partner in A Pair of
Sixes. And, too, you Seniors who
trip the light fantastic under the
colorful decorations at the Senior
socials, remember that it was Paul
who so willingly climbed ladders to
put up those decorations. Besides
these services Paul plays basketball
and we'll never forget how he did
l1is bit to wallop Johnstown! Hail
to Paul! A real A. H. S. graduate!
A dart across tl1e floor-a ball
dropped into the basket. That is
Mary Henderson. And that isn't
all she does well. Her drawing
heads tl1e Joke Department, but
there isn't any joke when Mary
makes things Hy. She's a peppy
dancer and an all 'round good sport.
She's one of those girls who always
sees the bright side. Here's to our
Mary. May she always shoot good
Gertrude and Alfred Craine have
kept together in 1llOSlI of their
subjects so it would not do to sep-
arate tl1e1n now. No one has ever
known the twins to fail in a recita-
tion. That's an enviable record. It
isn't a case of oneis knowing what
the other doesn't, either. But we
are more interested in the fact that
they are alwaysready for fun. You
should see them at the Friday after-
noon dances and at the football
ga111es. But it is seldom that you
see one without the other. lf being
twins is the cause of their ready
participation in any sort, T'm sure
we would all like to be twins.
If you have ever seen a football
game you will recall Raymond. He

Doesn't that say enough for her?

indispensable hgure in the dramatic

Out of the Kitchen, The Gypsy

Of course you know Reba. Every-
one does. Perhaps you know her
because of her dramatic ability.
Perhaps you know her because you
like her stories. Perhaps you know
her simply as one of those students

If anyone can feel blue when Reba
is around, that person must be in-
digo indeed. Her good humor and
ability make it easy to understand
why Reba is so irresistible.
If he is tall, if he has dark hair

Mac is a living proof of the fact
that one can be rather industrious

young man seemingly has the abil-

least, he is always on hand when
he's needed. Mac is the sort every-
one likes and is glad to know.
Bee is one of those athletic girls
of whom we are so proud, and justly
proud, for Bee is a wonder at basket-
ball. She is a brunette, full of life
and enthusiasm. Besides her par-

are so greatly interested-baskeb

field when our boys played football.
In this way she proved that girls
can help everywhere. Of course this
isn't all that Bee has done, but it's
enough to show what a good sport

many friends. Best of all she keeps

0 Freshman Year the English class rooms we pub- O
Many long years ago, four to be lished our separate monthly maga-
ll exact, a class of Freshmen directed Zines. They Were really 80051 and I1
faltering steps to the Altoona High
School. Up to that time the high
school had meant only a place to
enter in search of lunch and to leave
hurriedly, fearful of being late. But
the time had come when the class
had become so proud, yet it must
be confessed nervous Freshmen. It
was afternoon and we-yes, I admit
I was of the group-met the upper
classmen returning from school.
They didn't appear to have been
hurt, so we gathered all our courage
and went on through the doors into
the very school which was soon to
become so familiar to us. The Hrst
few days passed and we became
adjusted to the school. VVho can
forget the joys of meeting in the
auditorium and incidentally missing
a class? For it was afternoon, and
to make time for chapel we had to
take time from a class. But the
days grew hotterg the novelty was
wearing off. Grade schools had only
half days. So did we, but the upper
classmen had the wide-awake morn-
ing, we had the afternoon. All
through those hot days the Fresh-
man class bravely walked to school,
arriving tired and weary, but never-
theless arriving. Someone should
write a poem in honor of our fidelity.
It could have the theme of The
Charge of the Light Brigade.
Finally the hot days were gone.
Our attention was attracted by our
school magazine. lt really was a
magazine then, and its name was
The Maroon and White. Of course
we wanted to feel that we were
helping to support it, so many of
the Freshmen subscribed.
But we longed for other worlds to
conquer. Of course we liked the
school magazine. Still we wanted
something more. Accordingly in
perhaps gave us the experience use-
ful when the time came to help with
our school paper.
Finally the end of the school term
arrived. For the last time we en-
tered the school as Freshmen, the
school, less awe-inspiring perhaps,
but more satisfying. The timid
Freshmen had become Sophomores.
Vacation was over. Once again
we set out for school. How proud
we were now to go in the morning
with the Juniors and Seniors. As
another recognition of our newly
acquired dignity we occupied the
balcony in chapel. From our lofty
height we looked down upon the
other classes, secretly envious of
them. It must be admitted that we
were too high to feel quite com-
This was the year in which the
school magazine was issued in
newspaper form. Many of us con-
tinued our own little class papers
but we all felt proud of our school
Except for the school party and
the school play, the Sophomore year
was socially rather uneventful.
VVhen the joy of calling someone
else Freshie was no longer a novelty
we began to yearn for vacation and
a change of name ourselves.
The vacation before our Junior
year seemed very short and we
were strangely glad to get back.
Perhaps we were eager for more
knowledge, perhaps we wished to
see how it felt to be Juniors. We
missed the Freshmen who were now
in Junior High and in the Lincoln

History of the Junior Class
"Time flies and waits for no manf'
How trite is that old saying and yet
how sad a saying for some. Oh,
juniors, it does seem but a few
weeks and not two and one-half
years since we entered these homely
yet beautiful portals, and then
another year and we go out of this,
our Alma Mater, as graduates.
The tale of our freshman year is
indeed a sad one, for we were sep-
arated from our companions by a
period of time known as noon. In
other words, they went in the morn-
ing and we freshmen in the after-
noon. How hard it was for us to
meet the glances of these super-
cilious ones as we slowly and wearily
trudged to school while they were
going home. Nothing could have
made us more conspicuous. We
went in the afternoon-therefore we
were freshmen. How often we went
down the side of the street less
frequently used in order to avoid
these sophomore, junior, and senior
glances. We toiled in the hot after-
noons of spring while they were able
to enjoy the glorious outdoors. But
with all these troubles there was a
silver lining. Yes, two silver linings.
First, we could walk through the
halls without being bumped about
by some upper classman in a hurry.
Second, the Girls, League had a
heart and gave us a Freshman
Frolic, and what a frolic it was!
Then, too, there was the Girls'
League picnic at Lakemont, and-
shout it aloud l-the freshmen won
all the important events. Having
passed safely through that year of
pitfalls and disgraces even through
the tests so momentous to begin-
ners, we came to the gateway of
another year-as Sophomores.
Now at last we could come into
contact with that awesome body of
reverends, the upper classmen. We
were full of scholarly pride because
we had left the estate of Freshmen
and no problem in this world looked
too big for us until we tried it. This
year we had the great distinction of
sitting in the balcony and reporting
as near to heaven as was possible
without using the roof. One great
sorrow marked this year of our
school life which, despite the joyful
events, will always make us feel sad.
On the day of President Coolidge's
inauguration the radio wouldn't
work and besides missing the ad-
dress we were forced to return to
our classes sooner than we had ex-
pected. Through that uplifting year,
not only uplifting in respect to
being the students in our famous
A. H. S., but from the daily coming
together with the highlights of the
then junior and Senior classes, we
journeyed as would be expected and
we budded forth as first class Sopho-
To the pride of our elders we
opened the portals and entered
juniordom. Even as Columbus
sought for a new and strange land
we sought in that new land more
knowledge-and perhaps a little
something else. We were strange
in this new country and we tried to
adjust our old world Sophomore
puffed heads to a junior high hat.
And here we are, half through our
junior year with a glorious achieve-
ment behind us, some of us already
coming near the time when we shall
leave our beloved Alma Mater,
never to forget her.

The Annual Staff'
On Tuesdays and Thursdays of
certain months a little band of
patriots secretly assembled in Room
Eleven and formulated plans for a
literary revolution, for such was the
Annual intended to be. On Tues-
days and Thursdays of the afore-
mentioned months a certain mysteri-
ous man with a Roman nose and a
seeking expression lurked in the
hall about Room Eleven, even as he
did on Mondays, VVednesdays and
Fridays. He was only the janitor.
The leader of the tried and true
band of patriots to what the editor,
called the meeting to order at ap-
proximately 3:lO p. m. after giving
the weak hearted members time to
absent themselves from these trying
ordeals. The details of this splendid
enterprise engross several members
of the band so deeply that the editor
badly scratches Miss Stockton's
desk by pounding so hard with his
pencil. Finally order and attention
prevail without the drastic use of
dynamite, and the patriots are ready
to continue plans for the revolution,
The chairmen of the various factions
give reports of their work. There is
a noticeable lack of enthusiasm after
the reports. Again several members
become deeply engrossed in some
subject, presumably concerning the
Annual. The feeling is contagious.
In a short time the editor finds him-
self talking to empty air. The high
ideals of the revolution wasted on
thin air! Never! Attention and
order are restored again, somewhat
Worse for wear. The editor con-
tinues his oration on the ethics of
their peculiar patriotism. Suddenly
the mysterious man with the Roman
nose and seeking expression steps
into the room. All eyes are drawn,
as if by a magnet, to his. ln his
eyes all fear to read the downfall
of the revolution, the blasting of all
hopes, the overthrow of their pa-
triotism. He looks as if he is about
to speak. Instead he picks up the
waste paper basket and walks out.
He is only the janitor. Their fears
lulled, the editor continues. At this
moment a fresh air fiend opens a
window and confiscates a handful
of snow from the window ledge.
There is an air of impending dis-
aster. Suddenly a lone male mem-
ber on the other side of the room is
painfully aware of a concussion of
a mass of naturels geometric signs
with his cheek. He too opens a
window and takes his quota of snow.
A battle is on. The editor quells
this disturbance and introduces the
business manager. The glowing
description of high finance is so
interesting that several drop off to
the sweet realms of dream. The
business manager Hnishes and the
editor again indulges in a flight of
oratory. A curious member dis-
covers a College Humor while ex-
ploring the interior of a desk. For
a while hysterial, smothered laugh-
ter and hiccoughs prevail. The
editor perceives there is another
disturbance and the College Humor
is declared confiscated. The editor
was a calm, cool, collected young
man when he started. Now he is a
haggard, wild-eyed youth afire with
enthusiasm for his cause. The door
opens and a person looks in and
then asks if this is the Annual meet-
ing. He is answered promptly and
variously: f'The doctor is out now.
VVon't you come in again?5' t'No.
this is a meeting of the Board of
International Complications on the
segregation of the mentally unfit.
Come in." And, "No, we hold this
meeeting twice a week." The per-
son decides it is the Annual meeting
and he is welcomed like a sheep to
the fold. The editor again speaks.
In the midst of a fiery address the
door opens and a mysterious man
stands there like a man at the head
of a band of police. The patriots
' aim--Y-fc D . . , nazi' la:-eel-if
Eggs- .5 A' ALIBEELL 'IQ -Sa-swag
gasp. However, he just replaces the
waste paper basket and goes out
again. He is only the janitor. Vari-
ous motions are passed. It is get-
ting late. The meeting adjourns.
The editor goes his way to think
over the work he has done and to
dream of work to do. The mysteri-
ous man with a Roman nose and a
seeking ,expression slinks into the
vacated room and looks as if he
were searching for a clue. However
he brings in a brush and pan and
starts to clean the room. He is only
the janitor. '
The staff of the Liber L grasps
this opportunity to say Farewell to
their friends and classmates. It was
a great pleasure and a privilege to
have such a group of splendid fel-
lows and girls with whom we could

p The Mountain Echo
Ask any high school student what
in his opinion is the most important
organ of school life and he will in-
variably answer the school paper.
It is a kaliedoscope of school life-
recitations, lectures and study or the
gayer moments, dances, socials, the
school paper gives to the world in
print the activities. The school
paper is also a reflection of the
school spirit active or dormant.
To make a school paper function,
a staff of reporters is necessary.
In order to select this staff names
of all those interested in newspaper
work were brought from the home
rooms by Student Council members.
These names were presented to the
Student Council and the names were
voted on. The editor-in-chief pro-
posed was accepted by the Student
Council. The associate editors and
business manager were chosen in
the same manner. Then one day in
October a number of names were
read in chapel summoning the elect
to Room 16 at the close of school.
Racking their brains as to what new
offense they had committed, those
called bowed their heads to the in-
evitable. But it was not so bad-
they were to constitute the per-
sonnel of the Mountain Echo staff
and upon their shoulders would
rest the responsibility of getting
out the issues. Every reporter was
permitted to indicate the phase of
work that appealed mostly to him
and the reporter that made the best
effort eventually figuring in his
chosen department. With the quiet
resolution of High School students
with a task to do, the Echo staff,
headed by the very green and scared
author of this article, went about
putting out the first issue. After
losing a few pounds of weight and
fast gathering a crop of gray hair,
he placed the first issue in the hands
of the students and the stafffs
trembling hopes were realized-the
issue passed the gruelling third de-
gree of the school and was a howl-
ing success, although, until this day,
the staff still wonders what the
students howled at.
The circulation of the paper this
year was under the supervision of
Student Council members. As in
former years the authorities en-
deavored to keep the price within
the range of the finances of all stu-
dents in school. All members of
the Student Activities Association
received the Mountain Echo at the
subscription rate of twenty-five
cents for the year, while the non-
association members received the
issues at the rate of five cents a
copy. The paper was published
semi-monthly as the demand for
news proved insatiable. It has
always been the aim of the Moun-
tain Echo staff to make the reading
matter as interesting and varied as
possible. During the 1925-26 term
a wider range of material has been
covered than in the entire history
of the publication of the Mountain
Echo. At the beginning of the year
the Powers That Be issued an edict
stating that no advertising, whatso-
ever, would be used, in order to give
more space for timely school topics.
For the athlete, there is the sports
column, for the humorist, the hilo-
grams and jokes, for the lover of
poetry, the poems, for the music
lover, the music department, and in
general there are stories, editorials,
alumni, commercial notes, and items
The most essential element in the
success of any publication is mate-
rial. To get material is usually
harder than pulling teeth. It is an
established fact that an editor's life
is a path of roses, but the following
sidelights will help to change the
fact. At the staff meeting, when
assignments are made, the editor
g . 19 2 6 may
EQ?-at--E9 5. 'T 'LlBER,L. if C A ?:-Q-of-me-:Jigga
sets a date commonly known as the
deadline on which all material must
be in. On the appointed day the
ditor nonchalantly sets out for a
stroll for material. Beginning at
one end of the corridor, he leisurely
runs a gauntlet. Accosting his com-
panion-in-crime, VVard Konkle, he
sternly asks for an editorial. The
reply smites his ears that the edi-
torial will be finished two days
hence-couldnit get it done-dance
last night. Muttering inaudibly, the
editor meets Harriet Hoenstine who
eagerly hands him the completed
exchanges. Feeling that he has at
least one dependable staff reporter,
a voice indignant across the hall
arouses the editor from his reverie
inquiring, why Nellie Goodman's
name did not appear among those
of the alumnae reporters in the last
issue. Assuring the inquirer that
the matter would be corrected, a
sleepy query comes from Bobby
Boltz wondering why the Echo does
not print more jokes-surely there
must be some around school?
Agreeing with the gentleman, the
editor wobbles into a reporting
where a red-headed poet, named
Geesey, leisurely tenders a poem
entitled "All About Girlsf' Passing
out the door Cupid Reinhart hands
the editor a manuscript enlarging
upon the fame of the Industrials.
Hope begins to revive the editor.
At the light well, he pauses for a
breathg Virginia Leader innocently
asks if the Girls' League writeup
can go until tomorrow morning, for
they ought to be copied in ink? Yes,
it will be perfectly all right Cone
must be courteous to the ladiesj.
Next stop is Ross Ackerman, who
gives the editor an account of Mr.
VVhosis' talk in chapel. but he could
not remember the other speaker for
he was asleep when the latter spoke.
Drawing on his reserve strength,
the editor asks Reba Johnson for
Oh yes, but sorry-a friend of hers
is reading it and will give it back
soon. Choking back a sotty ex-
pletive, the editor, a trifle Stone-
wall Jacksonish, marches on. Ex-
celsior! the goal fthe English officej
is in sight. Sprinting on the last
lap, the editoris way is barred by
Sarah Tobin who demands to know
why her writeup of the Minstrel
Show was not in the last issue.
Gulping audibly, the worn-out plea
of lack of space is offered and after
a stormy session is passed. That
last danger passed, the editor col-
lapses into a chair in the editorial
sanctum and gloomily remembers
through the mists that the typing,
dummy ,pasting and circulation
must be done before the issue will
be complete. Yes, indeed, an editor's
life is a path of roses, but why is
he prematurely gray?
Of course, when the Mountain
Echo came out, it no doubt looked
so nice and easy that often no one
ever gives a thought to all that
went to make it look that way. It
is hard to realize the amount of
collecting, reading, writing, and
typing that it takes to send each
issues to the press. This cannot be
done without hardg-earnest and con-
stant work on the ..'.. piirtof every staff
reporter. However, the staff has
been willing and' reliable and has
helped the editorial. staff on every
side to make the Mountain Echo a
successful school paper. The editor
wishes to thank Mr. Clark and Mr.
Hall for their help in keeping the
finances straight and, last but not
least, Miss Mulock, without whose
guiding hand the Mountain Echo
would not exist. In spite of these
little sidelights, it has been a fas-
cinating and helpful task and it is
hoped that the Mountain Echo will
continue to grow bigger, broader,
and better each succeeding year.

some A.. TiUBHLLT -Sewing
The Student Activities Association '
just before school began this year
the School Board decided to give
the Students of the Altoona High
School a greater voice in the man-
agement of their own affairs. The
pupils were whole-heartedly in favor
of this plan, and so on September
16, 1925, the Student Activities As-
sociation was organized. Every one
who was a student of either the
Senior or the Lincoln High School
and who paid his dues was a mem-
ber of this organization.
It was then necessary to appoint
an executive body to manage the
affairs of the organization effec-
tively. This executive body is the
Student Council. It consists of one
representative from each of the
forty-four attendance 'rooms. At the
first council meeting, the following
officers were elected:
President .................. Raymond Hoffman
Vice President Charles Flickinger
Secretary .......................... Ward Thomas
Treasurer .................,............. John VVood
Since that time the Vice President
has left school and Joseph Wilson
was elected to take his place.
Later as part of the Student
Government plan, Home Room
Clubs were established to hold
meetings on Thursday mornings.
At these meetings the Student
Council member gives a report of
the Council meeting held the Wed-
nesday morning before. This club
meeting indicates to the councillor
the attitude of the students on any
question he may bring before them
so that he may in turn report to the
Council. The Student Council takes
all these views into consideration
and acts in accordance with the feel-
ing of the majority.
The plan is very similar to that
of our State government, the Stu-
dent Association representing the
State and its citizens, the Council,
the legislative body, the Home
Room Clubs, the polls where every
citizen voices his opinion.
This Student Activities Associa-
tion is under the guidance of Mr.
Hall, Student-Adviser and Assistant
Principal. Its purpose is to bring
the students of the school into closer
relationship with each other, to
foster more friendly feelings, and to
train Altoona High School students
along the lines of self government.
The plan has been a success so
far, and proves that High School
Students if given the opportunity
are competent to manage their own
Our dear teachers we employ this
humble method to say "Thank You"
for the tireless assistance you have
given us in the search for knowl-
edge. We can only show our ap-
preciation in the deeds we do in the
years that are before us.

Tuesday morning, the twenty-
fourth of September. the lirst meet-
ing of the Girls' League was held
with Ilarriet lloenstine acting presi-
dent. ,Xt this meeting the general
program for the year was outlined.
The iirst dehnite date was for the
annual picnic on October 24. lt
seems that this picnic was hoodooed.
liecause of the extremely rainy fall
it was postponed several times and
nnally had to be given up entirely.
The special features of the year
were planned, namely. the niaking
of pompoms to he sold at the foot-
fall games, the organization of sev-
eral new departments: the Camera
Club. superintended hy Misses llen-
dricks and Faustg the Girls' Forum
under the direction of Miss Turner,
and the Lfshers' ,Xssociation To
return to the pompoms: They were
made of maroon and white crepe
paper rihhons and really looked very
attractive. l'rohahly the last show-
ing was made in the Armistice Day
parade, when all the Girls' League
turned out seven hundred Strong!

After the first three general meet-
ings, the fourth meeting, on Novem-
ber 9 found the officers installed and
the Girls' League in general running
even more smoothly than other
It happened that this morning our
President very gracefully introduced
Mrs. Edna Fox, representative of
the American Social Hygiene As-
sociation of New York, who spoke
of the Social Problems of the High
School Girl. She left us with the
thought: f'As girls we should strive
to keep our standards above criti-
cism, because we are the ones who
shape the ideals of our country. We
must not buy popularity but earn
it through actions that become a
Of course plans for the annual
Christmas Party were being made
by this time, and preparatory to
this party planned for the twenty-
second of December Miss Vtfilt and
Mr. Tice of the Physical Education
Department of the Junior High
School demonstrated modes of cor-
rect dancing. 9
The last meeting of the old year
was an eventful one. To begin
with-Christmas and the Christmas
Party were in the air. Then, too,
a most interesting program was in
store. Frances Brallier and Betty
Lingenfelter, two of our scholarship
girls, presented a Dance and Music
Recital. The piano numbers pre-
sented by Betty Lingenfelter were:
Beethoven's Sonata, Chopin's Im-
promptu in C Sharp Minor and
Prelude in C Minor. Frances Brallier
danced the Hungarian Rhapsody in
costume. Everyone was vastly
pleased with the excellent work of
these two girls. That evening the
best party ever was enjoyed. There
was a delightful program and fol-
lowing that, dancing. Very clever
and appropriate favors were given.
Thus ended the old year!
January the fifth began the meet-
ings of the New Year. This meet-
ing was featured by the presentation

of the Scholarship Pins to the stu-
dents eligible to the Honor Roll.
This Honor Roll includes students
making an average of ninety or
above in four five-period subjects
for the year. The awards this year
for the iirst time included the gold-
pin girls-those who had maintained
the average for three consecutive
years. Fourteen silver pins were
awarded to those who had main-
tained the average for two years,
and twenty-one bronze pins were
awarded to the girls having kept
the standard for one year. Doctor
Robb in his usual happy way con-
gratulated the girls on the Honor
Roll, and giving them his best
wishes, presented to the following
their respective pins:
Martha D. Pearce
The February meeting was in
charge of the Dramatic Group of
the Girls' League. This group pre-
sented unusually well the one-act
play by Edward Pepe entitled How
the Vote Was Won, under the direc-
tion ot Miss Ritts. The cast was
ably assisted by Herbert Owens and
Thomas Abernathy. The Girls'
League has certainly appreciated
the co-operation and assistance of
the boys throughout the year.
The main feature of the Marc-h
meeting was a contest in extempo-
raneous public speaking by the
Girls' Forum. The girls participat-
ing were given slips of paper on
which were written assigned topics.
The speakers were allowed from
three to four minutes. The follow-
ing particpated: Verna Antes, Elea-
nor Barnhart, Cordelia Coffey, Mar-
garet Leopold, Caroline Eckels,
Eleanor Miller and Helen O'Neil.
The judges were the presidents of
the various groups of the League:
Harriet Hoenstine, chairmang Mary
Henderson, Reba Johnson, Louise
Jamison, Louise Wilson, Verna
Krumbine, Zora Miller. The con-
test demonstrated the value of such
training in floor speaking.
The prize winners were Verna
Antes, firstg Margaret Leopold, sec-
ondg Caroline Eckels, third. While
this sort of meeting was a bit un-
usual, it was thoroughly enjoyed.
And everyone was of the opinion
that the Girls' Forum was a valu-
able addition to the League.
The last meeting was held in
April. Naturally there was a lot of
business. The annual reports of the
Secretary and Treasurer were heard.
The Washington trip was success-
fully over, consequently an interest-
ing account of it was given. April
30 was the evening set for the
Mother and Daughter supper. Final
arrangements were made by the
The supper was a huge success.

feature -of the evening was an ad-

the problems confronting a girl just
entering college. This meeting with
our mothers was one of the most
pleasant events of the year. When

It is with great difficulty that they
managed to restrain themselves
from laying violent hands on each
other. So well did Paul Smith and
Herbert Owens play these parts
their teachers were worried for fear
they would resume their feud in
school the next day. The childish
quarrels and petty differences of
these two men brought on frequent
attacks of hysteria on the part of
Mrs. Nettleton who tried without
success to bring about a peaceful
settlement. Reba Johnson in this
role of tears and nerves was so
natural that we feared for her usual
smiles and sunshiny manner. At
last affairs reached a climaxg the
partners would no longer continue
in business together. They called in
a lawyer, Thomas Vanderholt, to
annul the partnership. Ralph Rider
as the lawyer made a strong appeal
with his calm and professional air.
His dictation was particularly good.
The two men refused all terms of
settlement. At last in despair the
lawyer suggested they should play
a hand of poker, the winner to take
over the business and the loser to
be the winner's servant for the term
of one year. If either partner told
of the agreement he would not only
lose his share in the business but
Rodkey as the clever young miss
who so skilfully ensnared the lawyer
demonstrates her ability to lill the
leading role. The joy of the part-
ners upon this discovery was pro-
found and the curtain falls on a
repetition of the first scene, the part-
ners arguing, only this time about
the value of the other's assistance
in the management of the business.
The entire play was so well inter-
preted that every minute was full
of fun and excitement. The mem-
bers of the cast played their various
parts so naturally a stranger might
have mistaken them for profes-
sionals. The only regret is that such
plays come but once a year.
At the February meeting of the
Girls' League the Dramatic Group
took charge of the program. They
presented the one-act play, How the
Vote Was Won. This play was also
given before the Parent-Teacher
Association. It was received with
great applause by both organiza-
tions. This amusing little act dealt
with the period in England when
the women were struggling for
Woman Suffrage. As all other at-
tempts to winithe vote had failed,
the women finally decided to give
up their various employments and
go to the home of their nearest male

relative and be supported until the
men would be forced into giving
them the vote. VVhen all his female
relatives invaded his house, Horace
Cole, a poor young clerk who had
no means to support his relatives,
threatened to call the police if they
did not leave. However, he realized
the hopelessness of the situation
and when Aunt Lizzie with her dog
and parrots, Cousin Mollie with her
golf clubs, and Maudie Sparks, the
skeleton in the family closet, sur-
rounded the house, all declaring
their intention of living with him,
Horace Cole suddenly discovered
that he had always been in favor
of VVoman Suffrage. He was spared
the trouble of denouncing Parlia-
ment for that long suffering body
had been beset by men all over the
country, goaded on by the thought
of supporting a dozen women the
rest of their life, and had passed a
law allowing them to vote. After
their object had been accomplished
the relatives departed leaving the
Coles to settle down to normal liv-
The audience thoroughly enjoyed
the clever acting of the characters.
Even the parrots-fickle birdsfthat
had refused to talk behind the
scenes for the cast suddenly found
their voices while on the stage and
squawked a number of unintelligible
phrases, to the delight of the audi-
ence and the confusion of the actors.
And so the speech-inclined birds
had to be borne away still protest-
ing violently, no doubt intoxicated
by their sudden rise to fame, and
the cast resumed composure.
The cast included:

The work of group meetings of
the Dramatic Section was specially
helpful. Miss Ritts at different times
contrasted the construction of early
theaters with those of today, and
stressed the elements that enter into
a forceful and successful dramatic
presentation. The girls appreciate
the untiring efforts of Miss Ritts in
behalf of the dramatic group. -
THE SOCIAL SERVICE GROUP
The Social Service Group of the
Girls' League under the efficient
direction of Miss .Phillips was or-
ganized November 3, 1925. Sixty-
five girls enrolled and elected as

The purpose of the Social Service
Department is to handle all welfare
work which comes to the attention
of the Girls, League and to teach
girls the great need of this special
kind of work. Their duties include
the distribution of greetings and
Howers to those who are sick or
shut in and they have helped an
invalid boy to keep up with his
work looking toward graduation.
A growing interest has been the
Christmas gifts to the orphans at
the VVilliamsburg Children's Home.
The list of boys and girls with their
respective ages posted on the bul-
letin board this year numbered
eighty-six children. No one was
forgotten and the gifts were taken
to the home in person by the girls.
Easter also was marked by the
thoughtful remembrance of the sick
in the two city hospitals with potted
flowers. The children of the hos-
pitals throughout the year were
cheered by the scrap books made
by the girls and sent to the con-
valescent children. Many an hour
was made less tedious and painful
to the children because of the pleas-

At the Girls' League Party the
Social Service Group presented the
Candle Exercise which was symbolic
of the work done by that group.
The number was one of the best on
the program and was generally
praised for its beauty.
The members of the Social Serv-
ice Department have maintained the
traditions of the group for unselfish
service and they hand on to the girls
of 1927 the torch of light and service.
THE VOCATIONAL GROUP
The organization of this group for
the year of 1925-26 took place in
October, 1925, under the direction
of Miss Eberle, with Verna Krum-
bine as President, Dorothy Carter
as Secretary, Gladys Cassidy as
Treasurer. VVhile very little is
heard of this group, it is probably
the most active of all, it "carries on"
every day, selling candy at lunch
time. Candy selling is apparently
a very profitable business, for this
activity is the chief source of the
scholarship and activities fund.
The initial appearance of the
Vocational Group was made at the
Christmas Party. Groups of figures
representing different vocations
open to women was their stunt.
The scientist was shown in Madame
Curie, a woman's position in politics
by Ma Ferguson, housewifely duties
were represented by the dietitian
and the Gold Dust twins. This un-
usual stunt 'fwent over big" and
won the recognition and admiration
of all the other groups.
THE GIRLS' FORUM
One of the additions to the Girls'
League this year is the dpeartment
known as the Girls' Forum. The
Forum was introduced to fill a
keenly felt need, that of training for
extemporaneous speaking. The first
steps taken were in articulation and
enunciation, and Miss Turner, who
directed the work, had a rather hard
time with the girls. In one of the
first meetings the discussion was on
what made a good conversation and
a good speaker. Thereafter at each
meeting a conversation was pre-
pared by various girls. After the
conversation the speakers were
criticized and the fine points dis-
cussed. At the Girls' League party
the Forum introduced a new cus-
tom, that of hanging wreaths in
memory of former teachers of the
Altoona High who have died in
service to the school.
But the Forum has not hidden
itself in the cafeteria. On Tuesday,
March 16, it made its debut in an
extemporaneous speaking contest.
The chairman was Harriet Hoen-
stine, President of the League, and
the judges were the presidents of
the various departments. The con-
test showed the results of the work
of the Forum. It was both interest-
ing and instructive, an inducement
for under classmen when consider-
ing departments next year. The
speakers were allowed three minutes
each, and Timekeeper Helen Faust
was accurate to the second. lilanor
Barnhart, Verna Antes, Margaret
Leopold, Ruth Miller and Carolyn
Eckels spoke. The judges based
their decisions on delivery, organiza-
tion, and subject matter. Verna
Antes, who spoke on The Ideal
Lady, won nrst place, Margaret
Leopold, who told What Constitutes
a True Friendship, won second
place, Carolyn Eckels, telling what
were The Keys to Success, was
This year is the first year of the
Forum's existence, and it is a group
with few members, but it has been
a successful, enjoyable, profitable
year, and it is the hope of every
member that the Forum may grow
from year to year. The retiring
oflicers who with Miss Turner have
guided the work of the Forum are:

we were unloaded at the beautiful
Union Station at Washington we
were a tiredbut thoroughly happy
crowd of girls.
This Union Station impressed us
both with its size and its beauty.
In this building is the largest room
in the world. An army of fifty thou-
sand' meh could stand on its floor.
This magnihcent station was built
through the combined efforts of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
the Baltimore and Ohio, the United
States and the District of Columbia.
It is patterned after the designs of
the triumphal arches of Rome. At
the station we were loaded into the
huge buses and thence transported
to the Franklin Square Hotel. We
were, with a little difficulty assigned
to our rooms. After we had duly
inspected them, off to slumberland
We were awakened on Thursday
morning by the telephone ringing
promptly at 7 :OO A. M. After a good
breakfast we started our sightseeing
expedition. First we went to the
Corcoran Gallery of Arts. For many
of the girls it was the first visit to
a fine art gallery. Neighboring to
the Art Gallery was the Pan-Ameri-
can Union which we visited next.
It is here that representatives from
all Pan-American countries come to
settle all questions which arise. In
their conference room is a chair for
each representative which is carved
with the seal of his country. The
Secretary of State presides at all
these meetings. The most wonder-
ful attraction in this building is the
patio which abounds in all sorts of
tropical plants of gorgeous coloring,
flowers of dazzling hues. In the
rear of this building is a beautiful
open court in which grew myriads
of spring fiowers.
After this our guide conducted us
to the Red Cross Memorial,Hall in
which are relics of the World War
and all those weapons which were
used to carry our armies on to vic-
By this time it was almost noong
hurriedly we inspected parts of the
White House. The next day we re-
turned to the Vtfhite House to meet
and shake hands with our President.
After lunch, some more hustle
and bustle and off we went for the
street car which took us first to the
Arlington Cemetery where thou-
sands of our heroic dead are buried.
VVe gazed with awe upon the new
Amphitheatre and the Unknown
Soldier's tomb. We piled back into
the street cars which took us on to
Mt. Vernon, the old home of George
Washington. We inspected all the
rooms, marvelling at the quaint old
pieces of furniture. The view of the
Potomac from the lawn of Mt. Ver-
non was superb. There was not
one of the party who did not thor-
oughly enjoy her visit to this beauty
spot famous also as the residence
and final resting place of the father
of our country. The trip back to
Washington on the steamer was es-
pecially enjoyable. By the time we
reached VVashington we were raven-
ously hungry. That evening was
spent at the theater.
On Friday we visited the Capitol
and it surpassed our highest ex-
pectations. Wie saw Congress and
the Supreme Court in session. This
was a particularly interesting as
well as profitable experience for all
Next-to the new and old Na-
tional Museums which were hlled
with countless wonders. Truly it
would havc taken weeks to examine
everything. That afternoon we
toured the city in sightseeing buses.
Some took the extended tour to the
Cathedral of St. Peter and St. Paul
or the Washington Cathedral. This
Cathedral was in L'Enfant's original
plan of Washington. The idea was
to have a national church where
would be buried the bodies of our

famous men. In the Bethlehem
Chapel lie the bodies of VVoodrow
VVilson and Admiral Dewey. This
Cathedral is located on Mt. St.
Albans. It is one of the most beauti-
ful churches in the world. It com-
pares very favorably with the
Cathedrals of Europe.
Of all the splendors of Wasliiiig-
ton the most wonderful and beauti-
ful is the Lincoln Memorial. This
memorial, in its greatness and sim-
plicity, is symbolic of the character
of Lincoln. That evening we made
a short visit to the Congressional
Library. There were as many in-
teresting things here that in a week
we could not have explored all the
little corners of the building.
Saturday morning we arose early
for our last day. VVe first went to
Washingtoii monument where a
very few exerted themselves to
climb this wonderful structure.
From the top of this the view is
wonderful. The plan of the city is
perfectly clear and all the important
buildings are to be seen from the
After this we visited the Bureau
of Engraving and Printing where
all our paper money is made. It was
a grand sight to see paper money
One of the unexpected pleasures
we enjoyed through the courtesy of
the Hon. J. Banks Kurtz was a trip
to and an inspection of the May-
Hower, the President's private yacht.
Promptly at 3 140 the train left for
Altoona. VVe were very sorry to
leave the most beautiful city in the
United States. The hours of home-
ward trip were spent in singing,
playing cards and games and dis-
cussing these things we had most
enjoyed. The meal on the diner was
another fine feature to most of us.
VVe arrived in Altoona at 10:50
P. M. We were very nearly ex-
hausted but all that we had seen
and heard was complete reward for
the little that we suffered. A trip
like that one comes but seldom in
a lifetime and the Senior girls of
Altoona High School thoroughly
enjoyed every minute of their rare
top of the monument. pleasure. U

My paddles trailed listlessly as
my canoe drifted idly over the calm
sun-lit waters of a tiny mountain
lake. I relaxed still more, and let
my little craft go where it would.
There was nothing to disturb my
thoughts but the faint, sweet trilling
of a songbird. Dreamily I pictured
my classmates as I had last seen
them on Commencement night-
just a month ago. My vagrant mind
lazily wondered where they would
all be twenty years from now. I
sank further down among the soft
cushions. Was that really a bird
singing close by? There surely was
a human note in that lovely song.
Truly it was a voice, a strangely
familiar one-that of our ever
charming Vice President, Gladys
Feist. How foolish of me to have
thought it a bird's! There was
Gladys herself-with soft dark eyes
and curling hair standing on a great
platform. Before her a huge audi-
ence of eager music lovers packed
the floors of the Carnegie Music
Hall. At the piano sat Helen Taylor,
calm and self-possessed as of old
and ever more skillful with her
fingers. Evidently these two were
giving a joint recital-a wondnerful,
a beautiful concert.
The scene faded. The same plat-
form loomed before me but the set-
ting was quite different. NVhere
before it had been arranged for a
musical recital now it was decorated
with beautiful furniture set off by
soft lights from delicately colored
lamps. Behind the orchestra sat a
great crowd of people, but this time
the audience was rocking with
laughter. Between their spasms of
hysterical mirth, I recognized on
the front of the stage the versatile
dramatists-Reba Johnson and Her-
bert Qwens. How I longed to see
the programs. For no play with
Reba and Herb in the cast would
have been complete without our
other dramatic star, Hilda Rodkey.
All too soon the gorgeous theat-
rical setting, the happy people, the
brilliant cast faded. A faint clicking
sound grew louder and louder. It
was--yes, I could not have been
mistaken-the sound of typewriters.
A business office took form-and
there sat the inseparable Bigelows.
Twenty years had changed them
little. My heart glowed at the sight
of their sunny faces. These two, as
capable private secretaries were
working in a large' luxuriously
equipped office. It was evidently a
partnership firm. The initials "H,
SL W.', were carved on all the rich
furniture. My first conjecture that
it was a business union of Hollar
and Wilson proved correct. I could
not discover what was their line of
business but I was certain that it
was a prosperous and happy or-
Darkness veiled the office! The
typewriters were silent. All was
quiet and dark for a minute. But
when the light became brighter I
saw a great assembly of women, ,
banqueting. However, I discovered
three men in their midst. I was
greatly puzzled to see Raymond
Hoffman, Earnest Linker and
Charles Garrity among so many
women. A lady began to speak
whom I recognized as Harriet
Hoenstine. Her words straightened
out the tangle in my mind. I real-
ized that this was the meeting of
the League of VVomen Votersg that
Harriet was Presidentg and that she
took "very great pleasure in intro-
ducing our distinguished guest, the
Hon. Raymond E. Hoffman, candi-
date for the oflice of Governor of
Pennsylvania." I knew now that
Earnest and Charles were there in
this great crisis as allies of their old
chum. After he had finished speak-
ing, the spacious hall resounded
with applause. Finally the clapping

ceased and a well known figure
arose, addressing the president who
recognized her as K'Doctor Eleanor
L. Wilson." Dr. Wilson moved that
the League of Women Voters of
Altoona should whole-heartedly sup-
port Mr. Hoffman in his campaign.
It was seconded by Altoona's only
woman lawyer, Regina Meck. The
motion was carried unanimously.
Eagerly now, while I had time I
began to scan the faces of the other
women. In the crowd were many of
the alumnae of A. H. S. The mem-
bers of IZ6 predoniinated and in-
cluded Margaret Leopold, Dorothy
Hafner, Marion Plitt and Eleanor
Steckmang in the background with
an expression of mingled anxiety
and pleasure was Virginia Beam.
Then, from her authoritative man-
ner it dawned upon me that this
was the cafe she had dreamed of
even in High School days.
Even- this most interesting scene
became indistinct and at last, in-
visible. I surely could have found
more of my classmates in as an
intelligent group as that which had
just disappeared. However, in a
moment a magnificent bank build-
ing more beautiful even than the
First National which in 1926 I had
thought so handsome, took form
before me. William D. Lingenfelter
and Alfred S. Craine seemed to be
in control here. They had not the
worried expression which often had
veiled their features in the days
when I knew them well. Money
must be easier to get in a bank than
it had been from High School
Seniors. No doubt now these boys
reckoned in millions rather than in
hundreds. No wonder their faces
were wreathed in smiles.
But all too quickly this picture
slipped away, my visions were mov-
ing faster-here, a splendid Girls'
Athletic School presided over by
Misses Mary Henderson and Bea-
trice Ayersg there, a splendid
Ladies' Beauty Parlor inspired by
Mademoiselles Masterson and Ech-
ardg now, a gorgeous ball room
filled with dancers, the strains of
jazz produced by Francis Wood's
"Harmony Kingsug then-an im-
maculate hospital whose head nurse
I recognized as Harriet Fay and
whose chief surgeon I knew to be
Joseph D. Findley, Ir.
Bump! Bump! Where in the
world was I? No wonder things
had been moving faster. I was
nearly in the only whirlpool which
marred the glassy surface of that
little lake-a freak of nature-but,
thank fortune, I awoke in time.
Swiftly I regained my paddles and
skimmed over the water to the
shore. When I had pulled my canoe
onto the shore and started back to
my mountain camp I began to think.
Were all those visions only idle
dreams? Had sleep and that pleas-
ant summer day created only fan-
tasies in my mind? Surely not, it
all had seemed so real. I must cer-
tainly have been inspired by some
god of nature. It is probable that
I shall never know whether or not
my dreams were prophetic. But
somehow, deep in my heart, I feel
that, true or false, they are auguries
of a good fortune that is destined
to befall the 'fiftieth graduating class
of Altoona High School, the class of

It was the last belated high school
affair of the season. Rain had caused
the picnic event to be held indoors
in the high school building. It was
a gloomy night for a dance. Tom
had asked Darby under family direc-
tion too urgent to be denied.
"You know Mrs. Lane expects
you to ask Darby. NVe are such
good friends. Anyway Mildred is
away at school,', his mother had

So accordingly, one misty, moisty
night, when cloudy was the weather
in a frame of mind to suit, Tom
escorted Darby to the social.
just before he left his domicile his
none too jubilant spirits had grown
less lively upon receipt of a tele-
gram from Mildred. She announced
she would return for the last half
of the affair. an
Now he was in dutch.
They entered the building at eight
thirty. In the noisy auditorium
nonsensical and witty retorts were
flying back and forth. Girls dressed
in the latest phantom red, lovebird
green, French blue made the audi-
torium appear as a live Christmas
tree. Whisperings ceased as with
great dignity assumed for the oc-
casion the President announced the
program. As the famous blue vel-
vet curtains parted they disclosed
the time worn quartet in their abso-
lutely last appearance. Then came
the usual play and some clever puns
which caused some to squirm and
several pairs of ears to redden con-
Meanwhile Tom fidgeted and
planned bearing everything in
silence. Surreptitiously he glanced
at his timepiece.
Nine o'clock and Mildredls train

His accomplice and ally, Mart,
had promised to be Darby's most
ardent admirer until Tom managed
to slip away and greet Mildred.
And now at this late date Darby
had to go and request refreshments.
Darby was a good sport-but-she
had one weakness. It was remark-
able how the girl ever remained
slender and then managed to make
the basketball team too.

just then Mrs. Pritchard came
and more enthusiastic greetings fol-
That evening after Marjorie had
been established in Marian's room,

no other way, the three had a long
Marjorie explained, "I know you
are both anxious to hear why I came
so unexpectedly. Dad developed
rheumatism and the doctor ordered
him south. Of course mother had
to go along. Then I was the prob-
lem. I didn't want to go with them,
so I remembered the invitation to
visit you that you gave me when
you were leaving last summer, Aunt
Helen. So here I am. Can you put
up with me for a whole winter,
"Can I? Wait and see the good
times we will have!"
As the days flew by Marjorie
proved a welcome addition to the
small family. Merry, helpful, and
only a few years older, she was an
ideal companion for Marian, and
interested in all her school activities.
On Christmas Day, trimmed with
holly and pine with a tree bright
with balls and tinsel and a fire burn-
ing in the grate, the little apartment
fairly glowed with cheer.
Marian was joyously happy as
she opened her gifts, books, gloves,
and a scarf from Mother, just what
she had wanted. But when Marjorie
placed in her hands a big box she
was almost too excited to open it.
And when she did there was a dress,
peach and silver-with slippers to
match! Now she could go to the
dance, oh joy!
Marian went not only to that
dance, but to all the others, looking
lovely in sweet frocks-Marjorie's,
of course! VVhat a dear Marjorie
was to lend them to her!
After Commencement, Marjorie
went to join her Mother and Father
who had returned. Marian hated to
see her go. How much she owed to
her-her whole happy year!
Several days afterwards a letter
came from Marjorie saying that her
father had a position for Mrs.
Pritchard in his offlce, and that
Marian and her mother must come
to live with them.
A little sneaking thought came
into Marian's mind.

The Brown Dog Jumps
I watched from my window as
the last truck left the drive. It was
june and all the flowers were in
bloom. Across from where we lived
was a brown stone mansion. To me
it stood for the greatest luxury. As
I got the last glimpse of the Thor-
ton family I wondered how they
could leave so beautiful a home. To
me it was a castle, a home ht for
kings and queens. Many a night
had I heard the strains of a dance
orchestra as it played for a ball in
the silvery glow of the summer
moonlight. And I recalled many an
incident of the past. How could
people be so brave? They were
brave indeed for they were leaving
this palace where life had been a
whirl of parties and entertainments
for a small town where every con-
venience was denied them. What if
Mr. Thorton had failed as a con-
tractor and must seek new work?
Why leave this palace? Why not
start over again here? But while
I wondered they had gone.
Many successes and failures have
been wrought since that June day
ten years ago. Today another fam-
ily sports on those lawns, plays in
that castle, and basks in the luxury
of it all. But perhaps my readers
would know the story of my dream
palace, of this brown stone mansion,
which today the Thortons do not
own because Mr. Thorton could not
afford the upkeep.
To enjoy the story one must know
a few little secrets about the neigh-
borhood. It is rather a rural dis-
trict with the houses quite a dis-
tance apart. Where the street car
stopped, a quarter of a mile down
the road, there was a grove of trees.
Attached to one tree and concealed
in a metal 'box was the button or
switch for the electric roadlights.
These lights connected both at our
house and that of the Thortonsl
Two weeks had elapsed after the
departure of the Thortons. The
house across the way was quiet.
The blinds were drawn and the
doors locked. One day in July we
saw Mrs. Thorton come to the
house and afterwards she came and
called my mother. On her face was
"My dear Mrs. Alloway, can you
tell me-oh, have you seen anyone
near our house lately?"
"No. Why do you ask?" asked
"Because someone has been in.
You know when we left we took
only what we needed. I left much
of the old family silver and the
antique collections and good china
-and ever so much more, and it is
gone! It has been the work of days
to remove what has been taken."
No one could offer an explanation.
The manner of entrance and exit
was a mystery. Nothing showed
signs of tampering. The only thing
to do was to put detectives to work.
The state police of the county took
up the matter. VVe were introduced
to Sergeant Austin of the State
Police and I revelled in the acquaint-
ance of so illustrious a person. Here
I was in the heart of a robbery!
Maybe I would find the robber. As
I thought of the thrills that one
might meet during the search for
the plunderers I determined to have
a hand in the unravelling of this
mystery, and what is more Sergeant
Austin had told us that we might
be of use to him, to keep on the
lookout. He told us we should have
signals-more thrills, signals! I
could hardly believe my ears. I
listened intently. The signal to be
given at the sight of a suspicious
person lurking on the premises
would be a quick switching on and
off of the road lights. There would
always be someone concealed on the

grounds. That night I tossed in
excitement with the thought that I
might be missing something. From
my bedroom window I could see the
road lights. Suddenly they went on.
Paralyzed with the suddenness I lay
still. What should I do? However,
after wasting some minutes in ex-
cited thought I perceived that the
lights were still on. This was not
the signal. I looked out. It was
only one of the family coming home.
The next day I saw at the street
car tracks a truck apparently aban-
doned. There was a trunk on it, and
a little brown dog sat on the driver's
seat. I passed the truck with little
concern for I saw it had a Hat tire
and on the side was written "NVhite's
Transferf, Days went by and no
conclusion was reached. The case
was given up.
0119 Eriday ZLIUOLLT six weeks Later
my mother and I went to see a
woman who had been doing our
washing and who without sending
word had failed to come the Mon-
day before. just at the entrance to
her house we met Sergeant Austin
who asked us if we had noticed any
movement about the Thorton house
lately. At that moment in the door
of Mrs. Dwight's house appeared
Mrs. Dwight and what should rush
past her but the little brown dog
I had seen on the truck some weeks
before. It jumped at me as if to
bite, and Sergeant Austin rushed to
tear the dog away. It turned its
attention from me to him, bit at his
leg and ran into the house. Sergeant
feared the dog was mad and deemed
it wise to catch him. I-Ie followed
him into the house. The dog rushed
from one room to another and was
hnally cornered in the pantry, where
it had pushed the swinging door to
obtain entrance. Mrs. Dwight said
she would go in and bring the dog
out if we waited outside. After we
had waited a few minutes Sergeant
Austin grew impatient and entered.
There was the dog crouching at
Mrs. Dwightls feet.
'KI was just coming out," she said,
"Brownie is quiet nowf'
But he was not. I-Ie jumped, not
at me nor at Sergeant Austin but
at Mrs. Dwight, and as she took her
hand to ward off the attack her
other hand lost its grip-for she was
holding something in her apron.
Out fell some of the Thorton silver.
A search of the house revealed all
the stolen property.
When the case was tried the story
told was this: Mrs. Dwight on her
vvay hgme from work at our house
one day had seen a curtain in the
basement move. She went over and
found the window open just a crack.
That night she returned and suc-
ceeded in opening the window.
From that time on she and her
family had taken things from that
house. That side of the house was
not visible from ours nor was it
passed by many people, so much of
the robbery had been done in broad
It was probably done without
criminal intent, just with the desire
for beautiful silver and store of
pretty bric-a-brac, just as the brown
dog had jumped, not to betray, but
to sport in its own crude way, on
the spur of sudden desire. Brown
dogs often jump, but not every one
brings down with it as prey-a rob-

U a boy dashed forth from the vocifer- The night of the dance all the

Jim was reputed to be the cham-
pion eater. He could gulp an extra
sandwich, manipulate it down the
column of his esophagus, and finish
up in line with dessert alone. Nor
was this his only distinguishing
characteristic. He was the best
dresser and the best looker and
didn't have to worry about dance
refusals. He has the glossy, sleek,
precise hair, the creased balloon
trousers, voluminous to the latest
degree in style. His aquiline nose
enhanced his appearance- All the
girls wondered whom he was accom-
panying to the social-all but one.
She herself one of the classiest,
entertained set ideas as to gentle-
manly conduct. VVhen Peg Larner
had entered the school late in the
year she expected tribute. Her
pretty blue eyes opened wide when
she was brushed aside and jim
stalked heedlessly on into the cafe-
teria. Peg was not used to being
ignored-few pretty blondes are.
jim munched away on his second
lunch. "NVho's the new girl?'l His
sentences were abrupt from neces-
sity. "Peg? Suits me. Guess I'll
take her to the social."
VVith a confident air Jim got an
introduction and assumed a certain
proprietorship. Later he conferred
upon her the honor of attending the
dance in his company. She sweetly
accepted. Surprised, reader? Re-
elements were in harmony. The
moon was in the sky, the stars were
all set right, and as jim whisked
Peg off in his shiny Jordan he felt
well satisfied. At last he had got a
girl to suit.
"VVow!" A puncture marred the
silence of the night. Juno had des-
cended in all her wrath and Troy
was lost. jim slaved and toiled long
hot minutes. Stray damp hairs
straggled over his forehead. A black
smudge of dirt marred his perfect
features. Peg was carelessly sitting
on his much pressed coat which he
had laid aside while he performed
his torturing work. The stars were
still in the heavens, but a faint
shadow was crossing them now. A
car slowly drove up as if the driver
were searching for something.
"Hello, Jim. Sorry I don't have
any spares to fit. Leave the bus
here. I'll take you both along to the
social if you don't mind traveling in
a Ford. l'm going stag anyway."
jim joyfully accepted. But a
puzzled frown displaced his joyous
expression of relief. XYhere were
his keys? He searched his trousers
pockets, then his coat laying in the
automobile, then frantically both all
"I'll have to stay and fix it. You
take Peg awhile if she wishes."
"Too bad, Jimmy," Peg sweetly
remarked as the motor started, "But
age before beauty! You remember?"
And for Georges benefit and ears
alone as she settled back relaxed in
the Ford, "I was so afraid I couldn't
get those keys."

put on a placid captivating smile,

The following dance he had with
0 Ruth Patterson, who had come with
Bill Leonard, a fraternity brother.
'KSee who Bill's falling for?" Ruth
H asked as they started ?"
Jim shook his head.
"That little Allen girl."
"I-Iuh!" you donlt mean it!" Jim
managed to say. He grew vaguely
uneasy about something.
"Jim," Ruth was asking, "Have
you seen Dick Coleman?"
"Is he here ?" Jim whistled in sur-
prise. Dick, captain of the football
team, very seldom deigned to come
'fYes, he brought her, I mean that
Allen girl." Jim had a funny feel-
ing. Dick, his idol, bringing Louise
Allen! Somehow he managed to
Hnish that dance with Ruth.
Then as quickly as possible, he
began looking for a certain girl in
The next morning at breakfast
Mrs. Curtis asked, "How was the
dance, James PU
Jim smiled, "Fine!"
And the girls?"
"Dandy," the smile broadened.
"Well, did you get a girl to take
to the Prom ?,'
"Oh, I'm taking Louise Allen,"
Jim said it as casually as possible,
"You know, mother, she's developed
into a pretty clever-why mother
what are you laughing at?,'
44 To Live " 5
Dreaming the while with a heart bent low, I
I thought of the bygone past. 1
I called to my mind the Heeting time -
The joy and sorrow I cast. -
I thought of the friends I'd learned to love, U
The play of my childhood day,
But now thru' a mist of tears I wept O
For it was all blown away.
Years in the future waited for me,
Months with weeks, days, hours,
Should I go thru' life shirking my task
Was I of the kind that cowers?
And I shook my head in the negative
And watched that sunlit ray,
For every one in the world, there is
Some reason for him to stay.
Then think friends when you despondent grow
When the world seems dark and gray
For you there's a task behind the clouds
To perform at break of day.
And though your work may be hard and long
Remember it's yours, today, .
I For every one in the world there is
E Some reason for him to stay.

The gypsy years, the tipsy years, are rollicking with me
Around the world and back again in careless jollityg
The years are gay, the years are kind, and not like human meng
They know a true companionship, I'm frolicking with them.
Why cast my lot with human men who think that they are wise,
Whose four score years acclaim them seers in warped distorted eyes?
My friends the years for eons past have looked on Mother Earth,
They know a man and know a fool, and how to judge their worth.
A woman laughs, a cynic sneers, and dust returns to dustg
The children play and fools live on and scales of justice rust,
And men bow down to the yellow god and think that they are free,
I laugh again with the merry years that frolic here with me.
Tho I myself am one of men, itys but as bodies are, 4
My heart a blazing meteor is ranging skies afar,
It loathes this wasting blood and rust, this shallow vale of tears,
It wantons with its carefree friends the tipsy gypsy years.
The years bring war, the years bring peace, as God's own voice shall
And consciousness of duty done and blessedness is pay, l
True friends the years became to me, they taught me once their way,
And so I frolic here with them, for now I too am gay .
The years and I make merry with assorted fools and men,
The years have understandings which are far beyond manls ken,
They whisper them to me and laugh, I understand them too,
We watch the fools and men at play beneath a sky of blue.
Oh soon a silver lock or two shall stray among the gold,
And dimming eyes and rusting voice shall tell I'm growing oldg
They'll bring me these because they must, but let my heart blaze on,
And thus unlike my fellowmen I still shall see the dawn.
Someday Iyll hear the call of death and I shall cease to beg
My soul shall cast the clay aside and enter Mystery.
The only sorrow I shall feel, the only cause for tears,
Will be the parting with my friends, the tipsy, gypsy years.
"For consciousness of duty done and blessedness is pay"
They told me that long years ago-it seems 'twas just today.
The merry years make priceless friends and let my heart blaze on,
And entering past the Mystery I'll see the Golden Dawn.

E Lanky Rand would tell us tales E

E He told us how when he was small E
An' still his hair was curled ,:
-I He'd travelled with his good old dad

O , O

And waved his hand goodbye
An' set off to some foreign land
An' somewhere there he died.
He told how he ran off from school
An' got on board a ship
An' started off across the sea
On a neverendin' trip. '
He told us ,bout the marble shacks ,
An' how the Hindus prayg
He told us ,bout the temple bells
In far off Mandalay.
He told us 'bout the waterstreets

more a riot of color. This time it
was orchid and yellow, a spring-

a splendid program arranged for us

Could I drink of the nectar as the Gods only
I would Hll up the small glass full
And raise it up high with the sons of man
And drink to the old high school.
I'd drink to the hours of labor and work
To the pleasures that always in memory lurk
I'd drink to the four cold story walls
That housed in the dreams and the fears
To the blackboarded rooms and echoing halls
With their mingled sunshine and tears.
l'd drink to the tests and the brainstorm exams
To the countless books and the rules
To the erstwhile student who crams and crams
And the struggling happy fools.
I'd drink to the teachers the hard and the kind
To the new and the old and all,
To each with their laughter or hard wearing grind
As perchance to their lot did fall.
I'd drink to the school for the glory that's hers
To the love and honor the debt incurs
For the making of you and me.
I'd drink to her questers of knowledge and life
To her clear eyed seekers of truth
To her strong sons and daughters all Ht for the strife
I'd drink to the day when down I shall fall
And tell to the greatest Scholar of all
I Proud tales of our own old high school.
That only the foolish regret
So dear I can never forget.
O For now and ever to be
Revelling in glorious youth.

in high schools the study of music
in all its branches is slowly but
surely becoming equal in rank with
other studies. Fine music when
really studied is excellent mental
training, and develops poise for any
walk of life. It is one of the best
agencies for the expression of
emotion. Moroever it is probably
the greatest of all recreations. Music
certainly deserves its rank in our
In our High School the study of
music is being fittingly advanced
and enlarged. For the last seven

To the Members of the Graduating
I wish to take this opportunity
to extend to each and every member
of the class of 1926, my sincere con-
gratulations on having graduated
from the Altoona High School. It
is an accomplishment to be proud of.
Also, I want to here express my
earnest appreciation of the excellent
cooperation between the class and
its oflicers, and to pay tribute to the
helpfulness and wise counsel of our
music. These include orchestra,
band, chorus, boys' and girls' glee
clubs, harmony, and free instruction
on any instrument a student may
wish to study. The membership of
the Senior High School orchestra is
now well over one hundred. The
membership of the combined orches-
tres of the Senior, Lincoln, and
junior High Schools is over two
hundred. From the Senior orches-
tra a small Symphony Orchestra of
about forty has been selected with
which more exact and careful inter-
pretations can be made because of
its convenient size. The band with
its membership this year of over
eighty made a wonderful showing
in the Defense Day parade and at
Rest assured that each one of you
carries with you my best wishes for
your welfare, not only in the im-
mediate futurity but for life, and
when you have taken your place in
the great outside world, may this
serve as a reminder, not only of the
happy associations formed in school,
but also of the time when you, as
a member of the class of 1926,
pledged faithful allegiance to the
good old "Maroon and White" col-
ors of the Altoona High School.

After being with us only the short
span of one school year, Coach
Holmes has endeared himself to the
student body. He has proved him-
self a good sport, a gentleman, and
a good coach. It was he who
originated the no alibi system. He
brought us into the limelight with
a strong combination in basketball
that teams all over Westerii Penn-

Coach john Tice
A newcomer to our city from New
Jersey and a valuable addition to
Junior High School faculty. He
served as coach of lineman of our
football team and coach of appren-
tice teams of the Pennsylvania Rail-
road. He was also a tower of
strength in faculty basketball games.
Coach Tice is one of those fellows
who immediately becomes popular
wherever he goes.

We all"know this 'mighty fine
young "man who came to us from
Indiana State Normal School with
a remarkable record and he isn't
spoiling it here. During football

field coach and cheer leader. He
certainly is a real pep dispenser and
an indispensable asset to our school.
Captain Charles Flickinger
Ted put up a mighty fine tight in
every game despite the fact that he
was out of several games due'to
injuries. His never-say-die spirit
led the team on through thick and
Captain George Beech
Have you ever seen anyone that
could play basketball like George?
He has been the star for the last
three years and captain for the' last
two years. This season he led
Maroon and White passers in the
most successful season since basket-
ball was introduced into our school.
In spite of the fact that all our
opponents were cautioned to watch
him, he led his team members by a
good margin. Besides being a crack
shot and a nifty passer Pete served
as a good general and always used
his head. Captain Pete was classed
as one of the best all round players
in Central Pennsylvania. XVe hope
to hear more of him as a star on
some college team.

Altoona vs. Mount Union
ln the third game of the season,
Altoona defeated Mount Union by a
score of 49-20. The Powdertown-
ers were bigger boys than Altoona
but they couldn't show the speed
our fellows did and it wasn't long
until it could be plainly seen that
they were doomed. Mount Union
always has one of the leading teams
in the Mountain City League and
the fact that the Maroon and Wliite
defeated them by such a large score
prophesied a good season for us.
Our two star forwards, Beech and
Hoffman, scored double the amount
of points allowed the visitors. lt
took Altoona the entire first quarter
to get warmed up at the end of
which time the score stood at 10-10.
Then we got started and after that
it was nothing more than a runa-
way. Our players not only ran up
the score in the last three quarters
but they allowed Mount Union only
ten points in the three final periods
which shows that the guarding was

A. H. S. Defeats Ford City
Ford City, an ancient rival of Al-
toona coached by a former coach
of Altoona, was not fast enough to
defeat the fast Altoona quintet. The
visitors thought they were on to our
fellows and fought to cover them-
selves with gloryg but they went
back covered with shame because of
their heaviest loss of the season.
They were defeated by Altoona to
the tune of 53-21.

Altoona Beats Clearfield on Their
Altoona came through again and
beat the Clearfield team on Clear-
lield's own floor. The game was
well attended both by Altoona stu-
dents and Clearfield.
Altoona took the lead from the
first and held it through the game.
Clearfield was never near the team
in scoring points. Beech as usual
lead our team in scoring. Hoffman
played a good game, as did Franks
and Brinkley. D. Brinkley had to

Peabody Meets Defeat
What was supposed to be one of
tlie best basket ball teams in the
region of Pittsburgh, came here only
to go back with a terrible one sided
score. When the game started the
Pittsburgh team was the favorite
to win the game by a large score.
Altoona surely did the trick when
they came out the winner by the
tune of 53-14. Every one was in a
happy mood after this game. Cap-
tain Beech just couldn't be held
down by any of the opposing guards.
He scored enough points to defeat
the Smokytown boys himself. Hoff-

State College vs. Altoona
When State College High played
Altoona January 30, for a few min-
utes it looked as though it might
be a close game. But, when the
Maroon and VVhite got organized
the score soon began to go up.
Beech playing his usual game easily
outscored the entire visiting team
during the first half. The second
period ended 26-5. During the sec-
ond half Coach Holmes gave the
second string men a chance. State
College took advantage of the sub-
stitution and played a better game
of ball, outscoring Altoona in both
of the final periods. Toward the
end the spectators became very
much excited as the State score
kept getting higher and higher.
However the final whistle blew be-
fore they could overcome the lead
piled up during the first half. Final

Bellefonte was another easy vic-
tory for Altoona. The score was
only 41-16 because of Altoona tak-
ing it "easy" once in a while to see
if Bellefonte would take advantage
of it. Bellefonte took the defeat
courageously because she knew Al-
toona was too fast for her lighting
team. Altoona was highly thanked
and praised for winning their sev-

Greensburg Meets Disaster at
In one of the hardest fought
games of the year Altoona defeated
Greensburg on the Junior Hi lloor.
Greensburg came here with a splen-
did record for the season, only to
have it spoiled here. lt was a fine
game played by both sides.
Beech started the scoring with a
Held goal, but only for a second were
we in the lead. Greensburg soon
found the basket and were dropping
them in at their own will. All their
shots being from the middle of the
floor. Franks held his man down
to one shot in the first half. When
the half ended Greensburg was in
the leadg the score was 14-12. Al-
toona found themselves in the sec-
ond half and held the opposing
team to one field to cinch the game
for us. We obtained a lead of eight
points and held it the rest of the
game. The final score was 28-20 in
favor of Altoona.

After the game at Clearfield our
team was "raring to gon and they
werenlt to be stopped by little Clear-
field. The game started with the
regulars scoring almost at their own
will. Beech and Hoffman were
each doing their own part for their
school. Franks the little 'fsorrel
top" was on the job holding down the
forwards of the opposing team.
Hoffman was the big gun in this
game scoring almost enough points
to defeat Clearfield by himself. The
first half ended 19-3 with Altoona
on the far end of the score.
In the final Altoona went wild
in scoring against the opponents,
scoring 26 points. The game ended

through by being put out of the
battle for personal fouls. Little
sorrel-topped Franks certainly took
his place by fighting and coaxing
the team to greater efforts. The
little cyclone was out the first
quarter on account of his arm, but
Old High needed his support and
in he went. Johnstown took A. H. S.
by storm and surprise and rolled in
the first few seconds of play, fol-
lowed by Ray Hoffmanls making it
even. lt lasted only a few seconds,
Johnstown forged into the lead, and
after that the battle began with the
first half ending with Johnstown in
the lead 18-16.
The second half was faster than
the first but because of Hoffman
and Kearney's missing shots, Al-
toona failed to score. But they, as-

Coach Tom Zerbi's outfit, a classy

Altoona a scare by holding Our
Own to 26-24. The game was a
humdinger though. Because of
Altoona's inability to make the bas-
kets, the score was one of the low-
est of the season. The ball just
wouldnyt roll through the basket
when needed most. That didn't dis-
courage the Maroon and White
team however, because they showed
how fast they would work together,
and succeeded in the last quarter in
winning the game. Everybody in-
cluding Windber received their

Ferndale vs. Altoona
Ferndale proved an easy opponent
for our Maroon and White goal
tossers. Altoona took an early lead
and at no time during the period of
play were they in danger of being
overtaken by the visitors. The game
was started with Hoffman and
Frands on the bench. Things didn't
move quite as fast as they should
have so they were subbed. Then
things began to happen. At the end
of the first half Altoona had a good
lead. When the subs were given a
chance during the second half they
went great. All they needed was a
start. There was no return game
with Ferndale, so we hope they are
satisfied with one lesson for the
season of 1926.

was the second argument of the sea-

Altoona Defeats Tyrone
On Washington's birthday in one
of the hardest fought games of the
season Altoona nosed out of the
Altoona-Tyrone game with a three
An easy win was predicted for the
Maroon and White passers but Ty-
rone proved a hard stumbling block.
The fans were a howling mass
from start to finish and were led in
cheering by Paul Tussey, "Pinkey"
Abernathy and Clarence Smith. The
Tyrone fans were very much in
evidence judging by the amount of
noise they made but were easily
drowned out by the Altoona rooters.
"RayU Hoffman led off by mak-
ing two baskets for Altoona. The
scoring for the entire game was
close. The first half ended 11-6,
Altoona. Tyrone caught up in the
last half and with two minutes to
play the score stood 21-16, Tyrone.
With all due credit to Hoffman's
playing, he seemed to have an off
day, and Brinkley was substituted
for Ray. The team with their
scrappy spirit now rallied and won
the game. Everyone of the Maroon
and VVhite passers played well. Bus
Franks should be given credit for
the playing he did. He was all over
the floor at once it seemed.

Altoona vs. Indiana Normal
Altoona expected to run up against
a strong team when the Indiana fel-
lows came to town on Friday, March
5. Indiana was strong but Altoona
proved to be quite a bit stronger.
The visitors lived up to our expec-
tations for the first quarter, then our
forwards began to get warmed up
and the first half ended 23-11 Al-
toona's favor. The second half was
taken with equal ease, the final
score being 49-23. The passing was
fast and the guarding close. Beech
was continually taking the ball from
one of the normal boys and drib-
bling in to make a basket without
any assistance. Kearney, Hoffman
and Franks shared in rolling up the
score for Altoona.

old reliable spirit that brought de-
feat to them at Altoona also con-

Altoona to pieces which resulted in
a foul called for Hoffman who made
it, which gave Altoona the lead in
the first few seconds 1-O. Greens-
burg dropped in a basket making

Wilkes-Barre No Easy Prey for
There were plenty of thrills given
the fans by VVilkes-Barre on Feb-
ruary 13 in the Junior Hi gym. The
team from the coal' regions showed
a lot of new stuff and did some
mighty Hne guarding.
For a while it looked as if the
Maroon and VVhite passers did not
have a chance in the world and
Wilkes-Barre had visions of being
the first team to give Altoona a lick-
ing on their own floor. In the first
ten minutes Altoona was white-
washedg Wilkes-Barre leading 8-0.
The visitors took the lirst half 18-6,
but in the second half Altoona man-
aged to emerge the winner, 19-9.
The style of the Wilkes-Bar1'e team
was hard to fathom and the Maroon
and Wliite quintet was literally "up
a tree" until the visitors were solved.
Kearney starred for Altoona. The
game ended 25-24, Altoona.

Altoona Beats Johnstown in the
lt was just Altoona luck or un-
luckiness to draw our greatest rival
for the first game. lt was played
at Cresson on what was supposed to
have been a basket ball floor. This
was the reason Altoona didn't give
Johnstown a worse beating than
what they received.
Altoona started the scoring in the
first few minutes of play. The team
meant business when we had the
lirst quarter with the score by a 9
point lead. Johnstown then started
to score and the score at the end of
the first half was 18-15 in favor of

As a winding up of the successful
basket ball season, the Altoona team
staged a basket ball carnival. It
was held under the direction of Dr.
Guy S. Tippery, the prizes being
furnished by the local merchants.
All the squad participated in the
program which took place at the
Junior High School. There were
events for the reserves as well as for
The potato race was taken part
in by nine regulars. Brinkley won
this race, Smith second, with Mc-
Kague a close third.
Hoffman made four out of five

Beech, Franks, H. Brinkley tied
with three out of five. Beech won
the shoot off with three fouls.
Franks won third place. In the re-
serves competition, Richardson got
four out of five fouls to Win. Fris-
bie and Hess shot a pair of fouls.
Frisbie finally won.
H. Brinkley received the field goal

In shooting for third and fourth
places, Weller and Means of the Y
All Stars took a dozen shots before
H. Brinkley and Soyster won the
pass and shoot contest.
The basket ball game was the
wind up of the affair. In the first
quarter it looked as though the Y
Stars would defeat us but before the
half was over Altoona had rallied
and led with a score of 18 to 15.
The second half was a walk away
for Altoona. The boys made one
basket after another and completely
baffled the Y guards with their team

One of the fastest games of the
season was played on the Roosevelt
floor February 20, when the Altoona
girl's team succeeded in beating
Renovo by the close score of 21-20.
The visitors came here with a real
team and managed to take the first
half 14-10. By consistently good
playing and guarding Altoona got
11 points to Renovo's 6 in the sec-
The team met their hrst defeat
when they played the Coalport-
Irvona girls at Coalport March 6.
Handicapped by such a small Hoor
the Altoona lassies just couldn't
overcome the lead the Coalport team
gained, so they came home with a
loss. The score was 42-28 in favor
The return game with Philips-
burg was played February 26 and
our girls' team added another vic-
tory to their string. The score 35-11
had showed how much Altoona had
improved their brand of playing
after their last encounter with
Philipsburg. Altoona took the first
half 20-2 and the second half 15-9.

The second defeat of the year for
the girls came when they played
Renovo at Renovo March 19. Again
the girls were handicapped by a
small and a low ceilinged floor. The
game, however, was a very closely
contested one throughout, neither
team having a cinch of it. The nnal
score 25-19 in favor of Renovo.
The defeat by Renovo seemed to
discourage the Altoona lassies, be-
cause they permitted Lock Haven
Normal to beat them. But only after
a severe struggle did the Normal
team manage to nose off the game

Willy Wilsoii-The fact that
"Willy,' was the Captain of the
girls' basketball team speaks for her
ability both as an athlete and as a
leader. She was always there with
lots of grit and spirit.
Bernadine Schwab-Babe was
just a new girl out for the team.
She stepped right along and suc-
ceeded in becoming varsity center.
She will be a wizard at handling the
ball next year.
Aunda Slack-Curly was a faith--
ful and energetic stand-by of the
team for three years. She always
played a splendid game of basket-
Helen McKinney-Mac was our
dependable left forward. This was
her Hrst year playing girls rules but
they proved no hindrance to her
shooting ability. Her shots besides
being sure ones were beautifully
Louise Bard-Weez had no
trouble holding a forward position.
She made a fine working mate for

Mary Henderson-Hen had
enough Hghting spirit for the whole
team. The team depended upon
Mary to put a fighting spirit into
them-and she could do it with her
"Come on girls, let's fight."
Anna Fellows--Anna plays guard
exceptionally well. She is also a
forward and a very capable one.
Bee Ayers-Bee surely has earned
her "A" as all who have seen her
in action can testify. She held down
two positions, guard and side center,
equally well. Bee's there with the
fight-we think she's all right.
McKinney was the star forward
for the Altoona girls' team this year.
She made 84 field goals. Bard was
her close pursuer with 52. Nellie
McCauley made 6, Anna Fellows 6,

both sides feverishly anxious for
a score. The visitors played better

Altoona Takes Close Game From
Coach Holmes' grid pupils won
the Hrst Hght of the season by de-
feating Hollidaysburg 8-6. The
game, for Captain Flickinger and
Shaffer had recovered from injuries
received before that game. Altoo-
na's first score came when Holli-
daysburg's quarterback fumbled a
punt, which rolled over the goal,
being tackled by two Altoona men
behind the goal. This gave Al-
toona a safety, making the score 2-O,
Shortly after the opening of the
second quarter, King, Burg end,
picked up an Altoona fumble and
ran thirty-five yards for a tochdown.
The first half ended with the score
6-2 in favor of Hollidaysburg. Most
of the third quarter the teams con-
tested bitterly, but to no avail. Then
Altoona came into possession of the
ball close to the sidelines. Pulling
the unexpected a cross-buck was
run on the weak side of the line,
Schugarts running close to the side-
line until he reached the goal thirty
yards distant, scoring Altoona's first
touchdown. The point after the
goal was missed making the score
8-6 Altoona. Hollidaysburg fought
hard the rest of the game but suc-
ceeded only in getting within kick-
ing distance failing at the attempted
kick. Final score 8-6.

The game was played in the mud-
diest and sloppiest Held of the whole
season, yet it was one of the best
and most interesting games, be-
cause it was the last game played
by a team made up mostly of sen-
iors. Altoona kicked off and W'il-
liamsport ran the ball to the 50 yard
line. Then Altoona held them for
two downs but Lady Luck favored
VVilliamsport and she ran the ball
to the 15 yard line before pulled
down. Then the fight began. Al-
toona took the ball because VVil-
liamsport was held for downs.
Shingler, our new quarter, used his
head like a veteran and called a
punt. Running and punting, for-
ward passing and all other tricks
known in foot ball were used by
both teams, yet no score resulted for
either. The third quarter was the
same old story, wet ball, fumbling,
yards gained and lost yet no touch-
downs resulted until the last quar-
ter. Shingler caught a forward pass
and with the speed of a cyclone
passed under the bars and made six
points for his dear old Alma Mater.
Altoona kicked off and the VVil-
liamsport men, fighting like crazy,
could not gain a yard through Al-
toona,s stone wall.
Maroon and White Holds District
After taking the first quarter to get
organized and used to Lock Haven's
style of play Altoona settled down
and held the district champs to
twenty-one points. Throughout the
year Lock Haven piled up big scores
against strong teams, and holding
them to three touchdowns showed
that Altoona had a good defense.
Many times when their heavy op-
ponents were working their way
toward Altoona's goal our line stif-
fened and held Lock Haven for
downs and kicked back out of dan-
Slopey was the mainstay of Lock
Haven's offense and had the Altoo-
na linemen busy watching him.
Captain Flickinger was injured
during the last period of play and
had to be removed from the game.
