Class Will of Nineteen Hundred Eleven
VVe, the Class of Nineteen Hundred Eleven, being in possession of our
right minds, and finding that our days in' this life of study are numbered,
and wishing all peace and prosperity to the under classmen, do of our own
free will, make the following bequests:
I, Ruth Trimble, do will and bequeath to Marie Barney, the high esteem
of Babe, of which I am now the sole owner.
I, Florence McMurry, do will and bequeath the charred remains of my
beloved Julius Caesar, to the tender mercies of Irene Watts, with the fond
hope that she will spend as much valuable time upon 'it as I did.
I, I-Iarold Kesler, do hereby will and bequeath to Raymond Smith, the
many girls and broken hearts I leave behind, with the suggestion that he be
very careful not to slight any of them.
I, Byron Ogburn, do hereby with all due solemnity, will and bequeath to
the Student Body my whole stock of legal phrases, to be used indiscriminately.
I, Dora Redeker, do solemnly swear that I will never more rush for school
and will not hurry to anything, and do will and bequeath to Amy Daily my very
punctual and nerve-torturing alarm clock.
I, Phebe Dempster, do will and bequeath to the present Freshman class,
my Lowell's Democracy, with the full assurance that they will be none the wiser.
We as a class make the following bequests:
To the Freshmen, our desks, together with an endless array of old pencils,
and the hope that they will find them as useful for cooky eating as we did.
To the Freshman Shorthand Class our "Conciliations," with the hope that
they will enjoy reading them.
Signed, sealed, and delivered in the presence of His I-Ionor,
Gano's Commercial Law.
Peerless Fountain Pen.

BYRON OGUURN, 'l1.
As I sat last night trying to ascertain the exact meaning of those obvious
characters which seemed to be so obscurely strewed throughout that luscious
volume known as "Conciliation with the Colonies" fin shorthandj, many were
the thoughts that percolated through my already troubled mind. VV hat would
become of the members of the class of 'll? VVould there be room enough in
the town of Anderson for us all, or would some of us be obliged to venture
forth and seek our fortunes elsewhere? Wotild we all be stenographers, or
would some of us be apt to acquire fame and fortune by other means? Witli
all these thoughts in my confused brain, my head dropped down on the table
and my fancy was soon wandering about seeking revenge upon those periscopic
inquiries. All appeared dark at first and I was about to give up hope when I
saw before me in a cloudy mist, the faint image of a small red volume which
I took to be a shorthand book. To my surprise, when the mist cleared away, I
read on the cover in gold letters, "Destiny of the Class of 'll." Slowly the
pages began to open and I beheld the following, to wit:
DORA REDEKER-She will attain a great height of fame and accumulate a
large fortune as commercial law teacher in the State Universityg and the
future generations of high school students will study commercial law from
books written by Miss Dora Redeker.
Pl?lQ'l2l11E DEM PSTER-It is evident that she will make a reputation as an ex-
pert typist and become private secretary for a national banker. After hav-
ing acquired great wealth. and grown tired of private life, she will finally
venture back to the dear old city of Anderson and become the beloved wife
of the mayor.
FLORENCE MCMURRY-This young lady will start out as a book agent,
carrying with her a complete stock of that humorous but seemingly incom-
prehensible volume, "Lowell's Democracy." After having disposed of sev-
eral hundred thousand copies, she will start back to her home town to deposit
her savings in the 'Bank of Anderson. But on her way she will stop off
at Berkeley and go in and deliver one of her favorite lectures to the students
of the State University. Upon completion of this lecture, she will be offered
a position as English teacher which she will accept 5 and the students of that
institution will certainly have to "hit the collar."
HAROLD KESLER-All present indications go to show that this gentleman
will become celebrated, and be known as the world's leading specialist in
Feminology. After he has acquired a large fortune and grown tired of
his profession, he will settle down in the State of Utah with seven wives
and live in peace and content for the rest of his days.
RUTH T RIMBLE-It is evident that she will become the only famous stenog-
rapher of the class, and command a salary of S175 per month. She will
also attain great fame as a public speaker on woman's rightsg and eventually,
when woman suffrage prevails throughout the State, become a member of
Ah! politeness doth infer tl1at mine should come last. But now a mist be-
gins to gather around the little red book while the last page slowly turns over.
Upon this page I am able to obsewe three conspicuous marks which I recognize
as shorthand characters, and I hear a familiar voice dictating to me at what
sounds like about 400g and I realize that it is time to wake up. I immediately
awake and find myself confronted with that ever-torturing shorthand book which
I had sat down a half hour ago to study. And the little red volume has never
come under my observation since.

The second term of the Anderson Union High School began September 6,
with an enrollment of forty-live. Everybody was refreshed by the summer's
vacation and ready for the school work. NVe missed many of the "old familiar
faces," but welcomed the newcomers who filled up the ranks.
The rooms were more crowded than last year. It was necessary to make
smaller typewriter desks in order to accommodate all the Commercial students,
but by this means and by a rearrangement of the desks everybody got a seat
and the work went merrily on.
One change occurred in the faculty. Miss Romaine accepted a position in
the Concord l-ligh School and Miss Alice Hunt, a graduate of the University
of California, has had charge of the Latin, the English and the drawing room.
The Associated Student Body had so little to do last year that no great
interest was taken in it, and by the end of the term its membership was very small.
Wiith the beginning of this term it took on new life. Practically all of the
students became members and it has been an active and useful element in the
school. It has had general control of athletics. Various important questions
have come become the Association.
Special mention should be made of the Debating Society and the influence
it has had on questions of school life. The rather novel' plan of subscribing for
a number of the best magazines for the use of the debaters was adopted. If this
is carried out it will result in our having a good reference library for debaters.
Next year the school will be L1llClCl' the guidance of Mr. Batdorf, who has
put in two strenuous years in the Commercial department.
It is probable that we will have a new fence and larger school buildings
NVe are glad to hear that Miss Romaine has been appointed vice-principal
of the Concord High School for next term.
Our advertising section is a little larger than last year. VVe may say, in
general, that the school has had good support from the people of Anderson.
The Troubles of a Freshie
LIEONA VVATSON, '14.
"Oh! I-Iow tired I am! I have read the first few chapters in Norse Stories
over and over again, until I can hardly bear the weight of the book in my hand.
The names are so hard to remember! I don't see why the writer ever put such
names in a book. VVhy eouldn't he have said 'the ringing horn' instead of
'Gjallar-horn' and 'wanderer' instead of 'Gangraadf especially when they both
have the same meaning?,'
These were the thoughts of a poor freshie, who had been toiling for some
time on this little book. A deep sigh came from the reader and he said: "O, dear
me! I wish I could go for a boat ride or go hunting up on the hill. It is so hot
and I just can't learn this stuff. l1Vhat is the use anyway?" Wfith this the book
dropped to the side of the sofa on which he was sitting and his head fell upon
the sofa pillows. Then his thoughts wandered along the river, over the hills to
the many birds that he would have killed if it hadn't been for that old English.
All of a sudden he heard two weak little voices talking together. One of
them said: Ullfhat will we do with this wicked boy who has been killing the
birds that were sent from Asgard to gladden the hearts of men, instead of study-
ing his lessons ?l'
This the boy recognized to be the voice of Fjalar, one of those mean little
"The best thing I can think of is to take him to the edge of Ginungagap and
throw him in," said Galar.
"Oh! 1et's not do that," said the cruel Fjalar, "he would die right away and
wouldn't get half the penalty which he deserves. Let us take him to Ititunheim,
where the frost giants live. Then if we think he is not punished enough we will
take him to the skillful little dwarfs in the interior of the earth and let them make
him into birds so that other boys may kill himf'
lVhen the poor boy heard this plan and thought of being shot, he attempted
to get up but found himself bound in a web. I-Ie tried to call out, but his lips
seemed glued together and he could only mumble. The dwarfs silenced him with
threats and, in spite of his ceaseless attempts to free himself, they carried him
rapidly towards frozen Jotunheim.
The poor boy kept thinking, f'Oh! Vtfere I but reading Norse Stories, even
if it was a little warm, it was better than being in this cold place."
The dwarfs stopped before a huge giant who was king of jotunheim. They
told him the story of the wicked boy and asked him to do with him what he
thought best. The king was cross that day and said in a tone that was like a
peal of thunder, "Take him away from here, I will have nothing to do with him."
The dwarfs became frightened and ran as fast as they could with their burden
until they came to the edge of the plateau on which they had been running. Then
they sat down to rest.
"My, I hate to carry him down this steep mountainf, said Galar.
"Let's not, then, we can give him a push and he will roll all the way downf'
said Fjalar. ,
"I will stay in front of him so he will not hurt himself,', said Galar.
"VVill you ever get over that tender-hearted way ?,' said Fjalar angrily. "But
do so, if you are bound to."
So the dwarf gave the poor freshie a push and he began rolling over and
over. Luckily the road was without stones or turns. Galar stayed in front of
him and caught him when he reached the bottom.
The boy looked back but could see nothing of the way he had come, for all
was darkness. There they were before a big stone door with a torch burning
above it to give light.
Galar rapped on the door. Soon steps were heard and a little man about
the size of Fjalar and Galar opened the door.
"XVhat do you want ?" he asked in a much softer tone than was used by the
giant. This was Sindre the brother of Brok.
'Whfe want this boy made into a bird that will fly about in the woods," said
Fjalar. "We want him to be shot at as he has shot at other birds."
"That is easily done," said Sindre, as he removed the web.
"This is my chance to cscapef' thought freshie, and he jumped and twisted
until the dwarf was forced to drop him upon the floor. His head fell upon some--
thing very hard. I-lc looked to see what his head had struck and was much sur-
prised to that it was-"Norse Stories."
QI-le rubbed his eyes and pondered over what had happened to him. After a
moment's reflection. he got up, took Norse Stories in his hands and began again
to read about the dwarfs.

A Reception of the Wild Flowers
ALICE .lor-INsoN, '14,
just as the big sun hung in the western sky, half hidden behind the edge of
the earth, and the breeze came softly through the trees, a tiny fairy stepped out
in the meadow. Her home was in the tulip and she herself was called Tulip,
being always dressed in a bright scarlet robe. To-night she was very busy, for
she was to attend a reception to be held under a big elm tree by the lake.
Tulip carried a tiny golden goblet in her hand and, as she stepped briskly
on, her small form soon disappeared in the grasses. Now, this goblet was to
contain dew, which is a very delicious drink among the fairies. The dew was to
be taken to the reception, for each guest was supposed to take something for the
luncheon. Tulip was very busy gathering it and so she stepped quickly among
the grasses, glancing at the drops that sparkled up at her.
She had not gone far when she met the fairy of the Wild Rose. "I am very
busy. I want to get my goblet filled with dew for the reception to-night before
it gets too dark," said Tulip.
"Oh,', said Wild Rose, "if you want dew, I know where there is plenty.
all fresh and sweet."
"Very well,', replied Tulip. "I should be glad if you will show me where I
can get it, as there isn't much left here."
Thus talking, the two little fairies went to the place where Wild Rose had
said there was plenty of dew. After Tulip had gathered all her little goblet
would hold, she and Wild Rose sat down to rest until time to go to the reception.
All the flower fairies were making preparations of some kind, and all spent
the last few minutes in arranging themselves so as to look fresh and bright.
There were some of the flower fairies who weren't going to attend. The Poppy
family was so sleepy after the sun had gone clown that they thought it best to go
to bed instead of going to the reception. The Daisy fairies wouldn't attend be-
cause their gowns were so faded they were really ashamed of them. There were
other flower fairies who were in the same fix and they also had to stay home.
Then, at last, when the sun had disappeared and the light of the moon had
stolen over the sky, each guest arrived at the appointed place under the shade
of the big elm tree. The glowworms had come to lend their lamps, while some
nightingales, who had been training their voices for the past weeks, sang low from
out of the trees.
As the fairies assembled, sweet chimes of the harebells and bluebells came
softly out from under the ferns. The grass was alive with sweet little figures,
most of them gaily dressed in colors or white, while the trees and ferns wore
sober suits of green and brown.
A short dance took place in which Tulip became the partner of Crocus,
while Wild Rose danced with Snowdrop. Jonquil tripped daintily beside Nar-
cissus and a sweet-voiced Lily bent gracefully toward the Fern.
At the close of the dance, luncheon was spread on a long white cloth, which
it had taken several hundred spiders to weave for the occasion. Tiny bowls of
acorns were placed down each side, filled with the dew which Tulip had brought.
Then they all sat down and tasted the fragrant dew, the golden nectar drawn
from the sweetest ilowers, and a wonderful soup which was made of fresh violet
petals, the pure white milk from the thistle and the ground seeds of the lily-of-
the-valley. They had a delightful meal and all ate heartily, talking merrily the
After the lunch was finished, Dandelion suggested that they begin the enter-
tainment on the lake. Then hundreds of water lilies Hoated up to the banks,
with two long, narrow leaves for oars. The fairies and elves stepped in and
soon the grass was bare, but laughter and music came from the lake. For a long
time the tiny boats drifted on the lake, till suddenly a clear note fell on the air.
Everyone knew what it was-the lark's voice telling them it was morning.
Quickly the water lily boats drew up to the bank and the fairies and elves
stepped once more upon the grass. The fiower petals were opened wide and the
little creatures soon crept sleepily to their beds for the day.

By MAX BUFFUM
The suit of the Student Body vs. Max Buffum for alleged back dues was
called March 24th, before judge Stevenson of the Supreme Court of the Ander-
son Union High School.
Harold Black and Earl Dunwoody appeared for the prosecution. Glen
Buffum and Byron Ogburn represented the defense.
The judge was in fine form and called court to order with a sonorous tone
that brought the room to silence and drove the blood from the attorneys' faces,
if there was any left to driveg for their jaws were set with determination to
such a degree as to make them resemble marble statues. The judge's legal
vocabulary being very short, owing to the fact that he had spent most of his
time practicing for the league games when he ought to have been perusing his
Blackstone, he thought it more becoming his high office to distribute his big words.
more evenly through the case, and began proceedings by saying: "Put her over,
Black," which came quite easy, as it was a familiar term with him. Black and
Dunwoody proceeded to question the applicant jurymen, the most of whom they
claimed ought to be excused from jury duty because they said they were not
prejudiced in any way against the defendant. But the attorneys for the defense
argued that if they were not within the prohibited degrees of consanguinity they
were qualified to be jurors in this case. Raymond Smith was the only boy allowed
to act as juror, as all the attorneys were unanimous in saying that he was the
only honest boy in school. Grave doubts, however, arose as to the jury arriving'
at so speedy a decision if a boy was allowed to go along.
A careful selection of the jury along these lines resulted as follows: Avis
Stackpole, Alice Erown, Rosa Stahl, Irene lfVatts, Virginia Shanahan and Ray-
mond Smith. But when they were lined up to be sworn, more trouble arose.
Attorney Cgburn protested against compelling a left-handed person to swear
by holding up the right hand. He advanced the theory that if a person was
left-handed the left hand would be the one used properly and rightly, and would.
therefore be the right one to use in this case. The judge decided the objection
to be incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial to the case.
The defendant was called first to the witness chair and compelled to answer
innumerable perambulating questions.
Former officers of the student body, Treasurer Charlotte McKenna, and
Secretary Marie Barney, were next called. Both would have been good jurors,
as their knowledge of the case would have prejudiced no one in the least.
Wlien Harry Nutting, a witness for the prosecution, made his appearance,
he was so fantastically decorated with girls' watches, chains, rings, hairpins and
bracelets, that he resembled an African princess, the only thing lacking being a
ring in his nose. The judge was so exasperated over this show of relapsing into
heathenism that he told Black and Dunwoody that if they ever brought another
witness rigged up in such unmanly attire into his court, he would Fine them both
for contempt of court.
Mr. Harold Kesler was next questioned in regard to an athletic rally, at
which the defendant was elected manager of the baseball team. But Kesler
could throw no light on the subject as he had been watching a couple of girls all
evening and had not noticed anything else that took place. Rowena W'atson
was called to shed some light on the question of the defendant's having voted at a
certain student body meeting. Ellis Shanahan proved a damaging witness to the
Black began the argument for the prosecution by summing up the evidence
and handing it to the jury in a concrete lump. But as he resigned the floor be-
fore he had the dose thoroughly administered, Ggburn was able to prevent the
natural effect by rescuing the evidence and then handing it back twisted and
eontorted into such unnatural shapes, that the jury could not swallow it at all, and
then through a quaint process all his own, he worked it over and handed out such
an amiable and plausible story that they could not help but accept it as the truth.
'Dunwoody made an heroic attempt to stop the How of sympathy in favor of
the defendant by enlarging on his meanness and capacity to commit crimes, but
his arguments were insufficient to withstand the terrible storm of eloquence that
fI3ut'fum immediately precipitated on to the listeners. Attorney Black then closed
the argument with a few half-hearted remarks in a hopeless tone. Judge Stev-
enson instructed the jury to End a verdict as soon as possible :md permitted
them to withdraw. The attorneys for the defense were starting to withdraw
with the jury when the judge informed them that such a proceeding was out of
the ordinary. The jury returned a verdict in favor of the defendant which was
wholly unexpected at the beginning, but after hearing the able arguments of
the defense it could not do otherwise.

If it was through exchanges only that we discovered our faults, the iXURORA
would be in the same ,class this year as last. We sent out about twenty copies
last spring and have received in exchange only six, and in them only two com-
ments. This is probably due to the fact that the .AURORA is an annual published
at the end of the school year and the various staffs, elected at the beginning
of this year, may not have seen it. ,VVe would be glad to receive more exchanges,
as we try to profit by the criticism, and hope our comments will be taken as they
However, notwithstanding the fact that we are thus deprived of our neigh-
bors' opinions of our effort, our aim is high and we must not be disappointed
if we fall below ,our ideal.

VVhile the season opened with rather da1'k prospects, yet the results
of our efforts are by,no means discouraging. The first thing we had to
tackle this year was basketball. life had no courts, grounds, baskets, or
anything to begin with: and there were only two students in the school
who knew anything at all about the game. In fact, none of the boys except
Smith and Kesler had ever seen a basket ball game. The first thing we
did was to get the Student Body back of the Athletic Association. Having
done this, we elected Shirley Barnes captain, and George Smith manager of
our team. Wie then tixed up some courts and began practicing.
Smith and Kesler showed the boys all they knew about the gameg and
by diligent study of the rules, they were soon able to form a team. Captain
llarnes gave every candidate for the team a square deal and showed no par-
tiality in selecting his players. The boys were all enthusiastic over the new
game, and each player did his best under the circumstances. One of our
greatest drawbacks was that most of the boys could not devote enough time
to practice: some of them live quite a distance from the school, others have
duties to perform which take considerable of their time. Captain Barnes
and Manager Smith, however, deserve much credit for getting the boys to
practice as much as they did, A
Our iirst encounter with an outside team was on the evening of Oct. 14.
Wie went up and tackled the Shasta County High ,School team. Of course
no one expected us to bring home the victory, as it was our first game and
none of the boys, with the exception of Smith and Kesler, knew what actual
playing was like. Nevertheless. we went into the game and did our best.
XVe were defeated by a score of 47 to 7. Wie learned several things from
this game, and came home with higher hopes than ever. The next evening,
Oct. 15, the Red Rluli High School team came up and tackled us here in
Anderson. And would you believe it? Wie actually defeated them with a
score of 15 to 14. This was the most interesting game that Anderson ever
witnessed. There was good playing on both sides. Our next encounter
was a league game played with the Shasta County High School team in
Anderson. This was a fast and exciting game, ending with a score of 23
to lO in favor of Redding. Although we we1'e defeated in this game, the
score was somewhat better than before. On Nov. 1 we tackled Redding
again and were defeated.
VVe will have to acknowledge that Redding is our superior in basketball,
but we can hold our own with Red Bluff even if we are amateurs at the
game. Qur next and last game was a league game with Red Bluff at Red
Bluff in an open court and on a windy day. This game was played under
protest and ended in a tie of 16 to 16. By continued playing, the game ended
with a score of 18 to 16 in favor of Red Bluff. According to the rules of
the League, the protest was decided in our favor, and the game was regarded
as a practice game and another league game was scheduled for us, to be
played in Anderson, but when the time came Red Bluff failed to show up
and we won the game by default.
BOYS' BASKETBALL TEAM, '10.
Upper Row-H. Black, S. Barnes lCapt.J, G. Buffuin, M. Buffum, G. Smith, Mr. Batdorf IMgr.J.
Lower Row-H. Kesler, H. Nutting, M. Smith.
Although we planned to enter the league this year for track events, we
were not able to. We started to do something. Kesler made some hurdles,
and they were in great demand for a week or two. A few of the boys
showed promise of becoming hurdlers. VVe then Fixed up a vaulting pit and
ordered a pole. The boys all showed great enthusiasm and interest in this
work, even carrying sawdust a half mile and working diligently in preparing
the pit. Smith and Barnes proved to be the star performers with the pole,
but they left us before any high water mark had been reached. Bernard
would have made a pretty good vaulter, but he also took his departure be-
fore reaching the top of the pole.
The rest of the boys realized that to do anything in the track and at
the same time have a baseball team would be impossible. In recognition
of the fact that we stood a better show in baseball, they dropped the track
performances and turned their attention and efforts towards a baseball nine.
It is a wonder that we had any baseball team at all this year, as the
season opened up just when some of our best candidates for the team were
leaving the school. Shirley Barnes, who was captain of our baseball team
last year, with George Smith and Harleigh Bernard-all good players-
took their departure before they had a chance to get on the team. Gordon
Barney was elected captain, and he left us immediately after We played
our First practice game. Irl johnson was then put in as captain but there was
very little material left in the school for him to pick a team from. However,
he did his best under the circumstances and the boys fwhat was left of
themj all turned out and did all that could be expected of them. Vile knew
that we had some league games to play, and we also knew that we had no
team to play them with. Therefore we got busy and made a team out of the
material available. '
I must say that each and every individual player deserves much credit
for constant effort, consistent practice and everlasting courage.
Our first encounter was a practice game with Redding on Feb. 25. Red-
ding succeeded in getting away with the victory, but it was not the easiest
thing they ever did. Our team did good playing, but the ground was in
such a condition that the odds were against us. VVe went down and tackled
Red Bluff on March 11, and were again defeated by a score of 10 to 8.
This was a good and interesting game. Good playing was done on both
sides. Gur team had the best of it at first, but Red Bluff got busy toward
the latter part of the game. VVe next had a league game with Redding on
March 15, and were defeated. On March 25 we had a league game with
Red Bluff at Anderson. Although we let them get away with the victory, a
marked improvement was shown in our team. Our team played a good
game this time, but it seemed that Red Bluff got the start and kept it all
through the game. By this time our team had improved to such an extent
that they were by no means an easy mark for any of our competitors. The
"much-heard-of" Chico Normal nine fell before us on April 1, and were
forced to acknowledge defeat by the Anderson High School team. This
game ended with a score of 10 to 8 in our favor.
If "Steve" and "Black" stay with us next year, I have not the slightest
doubt but that we can produce a nine that will be a match for at least a few
of our competitors. By simply glancing at the table of scores, one would
be led to believe that most of our competitors had what might be called a
"walk over"g but it is not true in all cases, especially in baseball.
What we need to make our athletics a success is more support. To the
students of the school I would say: "Turn out and support your team at
all games. lf the majority of the school would turn out to support our
teams it would help a great deal. both in appearance and financially. Girls,
you can help a great deal more than you do. You do help some, it is true.
At most every ball game one is sure to see two or three ofour girls out
waving the gay colors of the school, and giving words of encouragement to
the team. If this be not enough to spur one on to victory, nothing is. But
those colors are so fewg and those yells are deficient in numbers. There
should be more of them. That is where the difference lies." -

The First Red Bluff Game
It was a sad and grievous sight
To see the home team on that night,-
The night when all had ventured out
To see us win the basket bout.
Wle only had five minutes more
To pile two goals upon the score.
Our fellow students round us stood
And courage lent us all they could.
There sat the girls in anxious doubt,
A-wond'ring if we could win out.
About this time the team woke up
And sought to win the Red BluE cup.
Two points were added to the score-
We wanted now a couple more.
Then back to center came the ball,
While shrieks resounded tliro' the hall.
The people yelled, the whistle blew,
Smack! went the ball and off she flew.
This time with graceful curve she lands
Right into Barnes' nimble hands.
The rest,-t'was easy,-all he did
XfVas toss her up, and thro' she slid.
Ah, this was all we had to do,
For we had gained the lacking two. V
GIRLS' BASKETBALL. I
The season for girls' basketball this year opened with very poor pros-
pects. None of the girls had ever played the game before, and it was some
time before we got a place fixed where they could practice. Neverthless,
when they did start in to practice, they went in for all that it was worth,
and showed great enthusiasm and skill in their practice. They had a good
turn-out right from the startg but it seemed impossible for them to devote
enough practice to the game. They could not practice much at recess or
during the noon hour, because most of the practicing was done in the Odd
Fellows' hall, and that had to be done after school and sometimes on Satur-
days. The boys also had to practice in the hall, so we had to compromise
on the time. Consequently the girls did not bring home any victories. Their
efforts, however, were by no means to be looked upon as unrewarded, for,
under the circumstances, they did very good playing in every game they
entered. Some of our best players left school before the season was over,
making it necessary to keep putting in new players all the time. There was
no team practice before some of the contests. ln several contests the mem-
bers of the team had never even practiced together, I must say that our
girls deserve much credit for their efforts and enthusiasm for the game.
Their first game was with Redding, on the evening of Oct. 14. life did
not expect them to bring home victory this time, but we did expect them to
keep the Redding team awake while they were in the game. This they
certainlydid. They played a very good game, but were defeated by a score
of 22 to ll. Next came that awful game with Corning, played the next
AURORA V 27
evening after the game with Redding. Our girls were tired for the want
of sleep, or nervous for fear of defeat, or something of that sort, and the
game ended with a score of 79 to 5 in favor of Corning. X1Vere our girls dis-
couraged by this event? Don't ever think it! Even though badly defeated,
they had taken cognizance of several new points in the game, including the
need of team work. A great improvement was shown in their next game
with the Corning team in Anderson. Although they were defeated this
time, the score was considerably better. Cnr girls made Corning work very
hard to get the victory. The next encounter was with Redding on the
evening of Nov. 4. Although our girls were defeated in this game, a marked
improvement was shown in their team work and I am sure that if they had
played another game or two, they would have brought home a victory. It
seemed as though the season for basketball closed just about the ti1ne when
our team was developed.
The fine spirit and hard work offer the best auguries for a successful
season next year.
