Class History-Seniors For three years or more, the greatest and most important deeds that have been performed by the Class of 1914 have been kept a pro- found secret. It now becomes our duty and privilege to give an account of our most wonderful achievements, so that our under class- mates may thereby protit by our example. FRESHMEN. "So long as you are innocent fear nothing, but press on Until overcoming all difficulties, one by one, the goal you have won." In the Fall of 1910, we entered High School with an enroll- ment of seventy-two. The corps of teachers then consisted of Mr. McClelland, Mr. Griffith, Rose Witcher, and Pauline Abright. "Those green freshies remind me of a fellow who has lost his best friend," thus spoke a smart Senior boy to one of his classmates. "Here comes one of them now, let's have some fun, what do you say?" Just as this remark was concluded, an ignorant looking boy stalked into the laboratory. "Hello, there, kid, have you got lost from your mother ?" "I am sorry to say that we have not seen her." By this time Mr. Freshman was gaining in temper and he dealt Mr. Senior such a blow that he was sent sprawling to the Hoor. The outcome of the battle was that Mr. Senior had to beg the lad's pardon and thence- forth the Freshman Class of 1910 was treated with due respect. It also might be of interest to mention that we took our share of the burdens with a good grace and never shrank from any duty that was ours. By the close of the term we were initiated into full fellowship and good standing with the teachers and the remaining students of our dear old "Altus High." SOPHOMORES. "Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall" We returned in 1911, more determined than ever to secure the best knowledge with which opportunity alone could make us acquainted. It goes without saying that our class had greatly de- creased in number. Some took up their abode in other cities, and some left the state entirely, while others-alas! how unfortunate !-- that they should fall a victim to Winged Cupid's darts. Among those who received the fatal blow were our most dear and beloved teachers CMiss Hoffmeister and Mr. Griffithj. We, as students, with a desire to finish the high school course marked out for us, had long since learned from experience that there could be no foul playing. When the race was almost ended, we re- doubled our strength and made the grand rush of our lives. We can boast with pride that not a single one was defeated. Thus closed a most successful and prosperous school year. ' J UNIORS. "Every person has two educations-one which he receives from others, and one, more important, which he gives himself." Another vacation had passed and we were again on duty. It was nothing more nor less than a continuation of the old routine work. This year we took more interest in "Society" than ever before. A Literary Society was organized in which our class was well repre- sented, and we were actually astonished to learn that several mem- bers of our class possessed such talents as had heretofore been hidden from our knowledge. We also had a full representation in the athletic field. Tom Aycock, the famous athlete, was highly honored by receiving a free ticket to Norman, where he participated in the athletic sports of the Interscholastic Meet. The Junior Class had the distinction of being the first class in High School to give a Junior-Senior reception. The affair was an elaborate one and was enjoyed by every one present. Among those whose names we deem worthy in praise is that of Lalla Bristol. She is the inspiration not only of the class, but of the school in general. She was chosen sponsor to the Old Confederate Veterans at their Annual Reunion at Chattanooga. This important event marked the close of another term. SENIORS. "O far glimmering worlds and wings, Mystic smiles and beckonings, Lead us through the shadowy isles Out into the afterwhilesf' We, the Class of 1914, have assembled together for the last time. Inspired with new zeal, we are endeavoring to make this the best year of all. Our first event of the year was organization. Hansel Johnson was elected President of the Class and Lizzie McKinley, Sec- retary. The next undertaking was getting out of the Annual, which meant an extra amount of labor. We are the first class that has undertaken to get out an annual of any kind. We rejoice in the fact that the Fates have permitted us to take advantage of our opportunities, yet we are saddened by the thought that these happy days are slipping by and that we shall soon make our exit to cope with the ways and wiles of the "New World." We believe in bestowing bouquets upon our friends while they are living, and thus, we wish to express our gratitude to our beloved teachers, who have so kindly rendered us their assistance during these four years. We hope that we, too, may have a lasting influence, and that our footsteps may remain to guide others. M. M. R., Class Historian. TOAST T0 SENIORS.

Our class then numbered fifty- two and never before or since has there assembled in the Altus High School a brighter or more energetic class of students. Of course, we were green to a certain extent, all Freshmen are so, but you are aware of the fact that "Green Things" grow, and we have proved this by our immediate expansion in knowledge and learning. We soon mastered the complicated ways of High School and every Senior, Junior, and little Soph. began to fear for the safety of his former popularity. Our superiority was also readily observed by our teachers and great prophecies were made by them concerning our future. All these prophecies so far in our career have been fulfilled. As Sophomores we numbered just about one-half our number as Freshmen, but our forces were weakened only in quantity and not in quality. lt would be almost impossible to enumerate the many noble deeds done by us during our sophomore year. We, as Juniors, now number twenty-nine, thus exceeding our Soph- omore enrollment by seven students, Several of our old classmates have been dropped from our records-some of them to enter the ranks of some other school, while others-well, you know Cupid will have his Way. Although we miss the presence of the old students, new ones have been added to our forces who are equally bright. It would be of little use to mention each individual in this remarkable class, for We have become famous in more Ways than one, and as great things can not long be kept secret, you are sure to hear from us later. Ever since the day of our entrance into the spacious "Halls of the A. H. S." We have been the envy of all the other classes. Not only for our superior ability on all occasions but for our personal appearance, as Well, as you have only to look at us to tell that we are far above the average. We have accomplished great things during our high school course, indeed, We have accomplished far more than was ever antici- pated by our learned instructors. On the athletic field we have Won many honors-honors which gave to us, to our school, and to our city, everlasting fame. It would be difficult, indeed, for the historian to say What would have become of the A. H. S. Football Team of 1913 had it not been for some of the players from our most illustrious Class. We hope that each and every one of us will be enrolled as Seniors next year and finish our course in the dear old A. H. S. TOAST T0 JUN IORS.

Most of our number were graduates of the eighth grade of our city schools and had no trouble getting admitted, but those who were from other schools had great difficulty in convincing Prof. McClelland as to their ability to pursue the high school course. We shall never forget how awkward and embarrassed we felt as we took our places on the south side of the study hall, the usual place assigned to Freshmen, a short talk by the principal, who admonished us that many of our "capers" must now end from now on we were to act as ladies and gentlemen. After the ordeal of the first day was ended we felt very much like our high school life would be pleasant and so it has been thus far. We achieved many things as Freshmen. When we gathered as Sophomores in 1913 many of our class failed to return. A few had moved away, others decided foolishly that they did not need an education. During our high school career thus far we have contributed much to place A. H. S. on the athletic map. Sidney Wright, Phil McNeil, and Bert Philips have won many laurels. We are at work this year determined to make our second year better than the first. You will hear from us later on. Just now we are contented with industriously pursuing our studies, for it seems like the teachers give us about all we can do. J. N.

November 7, 1913. Class History-Freshmen September the sixth, 1913, was an eventful day in the history of Altus High School, for on that day a class enrolled that bids fair to excel all other in number, grades, and conduct. Thirty-four boys and thirty-three girls took their places on the south side of the study hall. Silence prevailed, as each surveyed more closely the large study hall, the beautiful pictures, and, most important of all, the august body of teachers and students there assembled. We looked with Wonder and awe at the Seniors, dignified and all-knowing, as they filed into their places on the north side, which each year is the sanctum sanctorum of those learned persons. How small We felt-how fright- ened We were-afraid even to move lest a mistake might be made which would make us the object of pity and laughter. But most of us had received our education thus far in Altus. So We soon adjusted ourselves to the more intricate Ways of high school, and have the distinction of getting started without appearing "green," as the upper classmen sometimes term Freshmen. We were looked upon with favor not only by our schoolmates in the higher classes, but by the teachers as Well. The first morning we were complimented on our appearance, and from that time have felt that We were favorably recognized by all, and that our ability was appreciated at the begin- ning and would not have to be discovered later on. From that never-to-be-forgotten day we have continued to dis- cover in ourselves unsuspected good qualities. Of course, being Fresh- men, we are not expected to contribute much to the verious activities of the school this year, but already we have accomplished enough to foresee that Altus High will have attained its GOLDEN AGE when we become upper classmen. We do not wish to be boastfulg rather, with all due humility, as becometh mere Freshmen, would we point out modestly some few of our main achievements. Had it not been for Camie Blasingame the girls basket ball team could not have been all-victorious. Claud Hale played a star game through the entire foot- ball season. Berry Hensley also starred in football, and broke all records in hammer throwing and shot putting. John Dye expects to take the place of Gene Kirby in the mile run. Besides athletes, we have musicians, debators, readers, and artists in our ranks. We note that our class is often called upon for piano solos, songs, and various other selections, when visitors are present. We believe we have acquitted ourselves as creditably in the Literary Society as our more distin- guished upper classmen. This may sound boastful, but we do not intend it so. We simply want it understood that our class ranks with the best, and promises to shower praise and credit on our dear Old High, before our career is spent. Already the school has learned to turn to our class in time of need, and seldom indeed are found wanting. When some hostile athletic team threatens defeat, or when unexpected company comes and needs to be entertained, our services are much in demand. High school life has so far proved very pleasant for us, and not only pleasant, but profitable as well. We have the distinction of making higher averages in our school work than any previous Fresh- man Class, and it is of our record in the class room that we are the proudest. We have in our number more students from the rural dis- tricts than ever before, and they are without exception among our best students, full of ambition and a desire to work. At the beginning of the second semester our ranks received material reinforcements in the twenty-two new members, who were promoted from the eighth grade. . We feel that our class is great in quality as. well as in numbers. To be sure its history, like its existence, is brief, but as some one has said, we feel that we "have a long, brilliant future before us." We look forward to the three remaining years with the thought that therein is contained happiness, and pleasant and profitable days. B. W. 'Q CLASS PRESIDENTS l ANIZATIU . k g- , ,ff if ' , W5 Literary Society OFFICERS The entire High School is organized as a Literary Society. This society meets every two Weeks and sometimes oftener. Each pupil is required to take part in the exercises whenever his turn comes. Credit is given for literary Work. Much interest is taken in the de- bates, and Altus High School maintains a good debating team. It is not believed that rival literary societies do as good Work and de- velop as harmonious a school spirit as our society. Every pupil is a member, on equal basis and required to do his part. Debates are conducted in connection with the English classes. Officers are elected each semester. These officers may be chosen from any high school grade. The High School has a Girls' Glee Club, Boys' Quar- tette and Orchestra. We QQ 5 W3 QL, 1.71 ff , 'CNE AX ff 42 W V4 Q 7 ig!

No pupil majors in athletics nor is allowed to participate in the same unless he does creditably the regular high school course during the regular school hours. The motto, "It is better to lose than to win dishonestlyf' expresses the sentiment of the student body. There is no more honorable body of students anywhere. The town loafer, ringer, professional, and bully are not asked to engage in the various athletics of the school. They are not allowed. A. H. S. has records of which she is proud g athletics which would do honor to any school. A glance in the library at the many beautiful trophies would convince you that this is true. At the Interscholastic School Meet held at Norman, May, 1913, Altus won second place. The school has never employed a profes- sional coach or director of athletics, but the training and coaching has been done by the regular faculty, assisted by several college men of the city who have had athletic training.

The members of the team showed excellent team Work Which, under the skillful training of Coach Witcher, be- came almost perfect before the close of the season. Altus will never have a team more Worthy of praise than the girls of 1913. They encountered many difficulties that would have completely disheartened and discouraged many Who boast of their love for the game, but for the girls of the Altus team these obstacles only strengthened their determination to play the series out. A team of such spirit seldom goes down in hopeless defeat, therefore it is no more than one should expect to see the championship pennant for 1912-13 hanging on the walls of A. H. S. The game that won the pennant Was marked by the strong play- ing of Misses Thaggard and Blasingame at center. Misses Kizziar and Weir proved themselves masters of the art at guarding, while Misses Neal and McCarty Won the praise and admiration of the spec- tators by their skillful shooting at the baskets. Misses McCarty, Blasingame and Kizziar will be members of the team 1913-14. A Track Team 1 Upper Row-Sidney McNeil, Tom Aycock, Harold Decker, Clifford Pendleton, Ed Bristol.

A hoss is my favorite animale, because when you punch it in the slats it gets some pep and moves on. It has two hind legs and two front legs. They are made to stand on. He has a couple of ears and eyes, a mouth that works like a coffee-pot lid, and a main that's made to cuver up his dirty neck. He has feet on the bottom of his props and aint got any toes, so he dont have to have his toe nails cut, nor dont have to take a bath nor wash his dirty feet. Lucky feller, aint he?
