When, falling on your weary brain,
Like a mild mid-summer shower
The dreams of youth come back again
Clear dew drops, early morning’s rain
Dropping on the ripening grain,
As once upon the flower.
Just fan the mouldering dust away,
And turn these pages by,
And smile a little and be gay;
As thoughts return of yesterday,
When life was in its early May,
And you in Anthony High.Bebiraiton

The PURPLE and GOLD appears in its sec-
ond annual issue. It serves a double purpose. It
is a means of expression of the impulses and im-
pressions of life in the Anthony High School and
hence has a distinct educational value. It is at
the same time a history of the inner life and
spirit of the school, such history as is found in no
ether records of the school.
As an achievement a well planned and well
executed annual is a worth while project in any
school. As a reminder of those great days when
life was flowing out into the larger and more com-
plex relationships, when feelings and emotions ran
high, when victories were so precious and defeats
so disgraceful, before the sordid affairs of life,
and the keen fierce competition of business had
forced themselves upon us, the PURPLE and
GOLD will always be as a gleam of spring sun-
shine, or a refreshing breeze on a sultry summer
night. The PURPLE and GOLD should continue
to be an annual affair of the school as a whole-
some expression of the present to become a beau-
tiful reminder of the past.
The class of 1920 carries with it the best
wishes of the Anthony High School.

(Liu' (Class nf ’21
As we near the close of our third year in the Anthony High School
and take a retrospective glance at our past enjoyments and achievements
we feel well pleased with them.
Although there were originally eighty-five in the class and there are
now but forty-three we consider the ones that have stuck together these
three years as the dearest of our friends.
During the three years we have enjoyed a great number of parties
and picnics the most enjoyable of which were the all-day picnics at
Drury. There have also been two box suppers which we have greatly en-
joyed. The chief social events of this year were our entertainment by
the Seniors on St. Valentine’s Day, the Junior-Senior banquet on April
24th and our picnic at Drury on May 22d.
Among other things of which we may boast, if you will kindly give us
permission, is our talent and ability in athletics. During our Freshman year
there were a number in our class who made places on the teams and many
more showed great ability. In our second year athletics were rather
handicapped by the “flu” epidemic but nevertheless our class showed up
well, especially in basketball and baseball and in tennis the champions
were from our class. During this Junior year we have taken the lead in
athletics and the majority of men on the different teams were Juniors.
The class as a whole has always been very active and took a leading
part in all activities. When we were Freshmen we subscribed for a larger
Liberty bond than any other class and there is also a small amount of
musical talent in our class as the Glee Clubs contain many Juniors and the
High School male quartet is composed of Juniors. There is also a double
male quartet which contains seven Juniors.
Our greatest hope and ambition at the present time is to be the (first
class to graduate from the new high school which is now under construc-

COLORS—Red and White
The Sophomore Class had three boys, Harold Brand, Chester Harrison
and Dale Gard, on the football team. Harold Brand also received a seven-
inch letter in basketball. Two Sophomore girls, Dorothy Lett, and Mary
Miller were on the Girls’ basketball team.
j jskiplimuorc Excursion
On the first day of May the class of 1922 went on a picnic to Drury. The plans
had been carefully discussed and they all agreed they must get an Ehrle f.tart.
True to their instructions the cars began to congregate at the Alamj Hotel just
as the Cox were crowing, and as the Pearl and Opal gates of dawn were opening at
Aurora’s magic touch.
Chester Harrison was there in his Hue racer but made the mistake of heading
his car south. Marguerite Richard says, "Turner around, Chet, we’re not going to
Beatrice Tannehill was the last to arrive, and gave as her reason that she over-
slept. because she had worked so late the evening before Poston her books. Emily
McAllister said, “We thought you had to Moyer lawn.”
All answered to roll call taken by Miss Schmidt, and Prof. Reidner, with his Saxon
Limosine and his Smiley countenance, led the way.
Eastward into the dawn the Long line of cars sped on. O’er hill and Dale, down
the dusty road they went without mishap, until suddenly Maurice McAdow’s Ford
began to Buck, and finally came to a stop in the Lee of a Large cliff. With considerable
Grace Maurice crept under the car and after getting one eye blacked with grease and
his left ear filled with hard oil, discovered the trouble to be a shortage in the gasoline
tank. This was remedied by a liquid loan from Bill Shuyler, and again the procession
went on its way filled with the Joye of motoring.
They soon arrived on the river bank at Drury and went into camp in a leafy
Glenn where the Fern grew in clustering Garlands in the Lee of the rocky hillside.
Ruth Jones was appointed chief Koch, and Mildred Chittum and Luella Smith
were named as assistants. They had forgotten to bring flour in which to fry the fish.
Ida Ferguson said she knew a Mary Miller, who dwelt by the river a mile below,
and offered to go for seme flour, but the crowd said let Maude Cooke the fish as the way
she Broyles them is better than frying anyway.
The crowd then divided into groups, each selecting its own diversion. Maurita
McAdams. Maude Flinn Frances Huffman and Nellie Walters sought the shade of a
tree and became engaged in teaching their Dolly to Reid.
Mr. Sydney with his natural instinct for hunting, set forth into the jungles in
search of large game. He had not gone far when a Fox came past at a Galloup.
Air. Sydney had, however, failed to bring his trusty gun on this occasion. However,
not wishing to lese such a chance to make himself famous, he set out in pursuit.
Being a great track man he soon overtook his quarry, and tied a string about his
neck. He then led him into .camp. At sight of the Fox all the rest of tne teachers
became frightened and began to scream. And Miss Ludcman cried out, “Please
don’t Lett him go.”
At dinner Bill Shuyler became Blowey and began to tell when he was a little
Shaver, and how he used to Brand cattle in Wyoming. Then Grant Adkisson told
about the time he was a Harold under George V of England. Someone made light as
to the truth of these stories. But Bill offered to Bettis a dollar that they were at
least original, which was better than some of us could do.
During the afternoon while endeavoring to climb a tree Harold Brand fell to the
ground nearly breaking his Lcgg. Ruby however, began comforting him, and he soon
became a Wellman.
Evening came, and each wended his homew’ard way glad w’ithin his heart that
he had been there.8

THE SOPHOMORE BASKETBALL TEAM
Listen, my hearties, and I will tell
Of the Sophomore Basketball team,
We have the rest all beat to—Well,
You understand what I mean.
The Seniors came first in all their might,
They thought they had a pipe,
But after forty minutes they gave up the fight
This shows what we do with their type.
Next came the Freshies, so the schedule said,
And we had thought so, too.
Until we found they were home in bed
Completely stopped up with the “Flu ’
But even at that they had nothing on us.
Because we were in the same fix.
Still we had a team ready to mix up the fuss
But the Boss of the Freshies said “Nix.”
While we were waiting for the next scheduled game
We got a game with Spring.
They brought a bunch of cowpunchers up
And we certainly made them look tame.
Then came the Juniors; last game of the season
They said we were going to look sick;
But after the game, if we did look sick
I am sure they were not the reason.
Now for an award for each of the men:
Cox comes first, you know,
Because he’s so fast when he starts down the court,
Though he’s guard he never misses a throw.
Then comes Gard, he’s also a guard,
That you can tell by his name.
When it comes to keeping his man from the goal,
That’s where he gets his fame.
The next place is Shuyler’s. You say, how can it be?
Because it takes a good man to play center.
His spectacular playing fills spectators with glee.
But he doesn’t believe they could do any better.
Brand comes next because he’s Captain,
And he’s such a fine looking guy
The girls all giggle with delight
When he goes passing by.
And last, but not least, tho he’s rather small,
Comes Lee, he’s our star forward on the left.
The girls just won’t leave him alone at all
They seem to think he has the heft.
Then there’s Adkisson. our professional Sub.
He has magnificent poise,
And when something over him they try to rub
He uses his Avoirdupois.
This little story has no end,
Because the Sophs are best in all,
So here’s to the good old class while we wend
Our way thru the A. H. S.39

Football practice was called by Capt. Faubion Monday of the second
week of school. About thirty men came out to try out for places on the team.
The prospects for the season looked bright as most of the men from the
year before were back again, and there was a lot of raw material to work
on, such as “Chet” Harrison, often spoken of as the “human tank.”
Mr. Sydney went out to coach the team and right from the word “go”
he insisted that the men train and keep in as good physical condition as
possible. The first two weeks he kept them busy kicking, catching and
rolling on the ball, and later they spent some time tackling the dummy.
Wellington announced that they were going in to get the state cham-
pionship, so the coach decided it would do the boys good to go up against
them. A game was matched with them here for September 19.
The line up chosen for this game was practically the same all season.

In the Wellington game the playing showed lack of
practice and team work, but it was evident that there
was good material and lots of room for improvement. The
next week the coach showed the team where their weak
points were and the men set in with great effort and hard
work to remedy these faults.
The next week the team was sent to Blackwell to
play. Four of the regular men had been put off so the
team went considerably crippled. But they did their best
and never lost spirit even after they were again defeated
By this time it was quite evident something had to
be done. Things could not be allowed to go on in this
way all season. Coach Sydney decided to change the po-
sitions of several of the team, which proved to be an ad-
vantage, for on October 3, when the team went to Kiowa
to play it was an easy victory for Anthony. Captain Faub-
ion tackled too low and was knocked senseless for a while.
As a result he carried a black eye for something like four
weeks. The score was 25-6.
The next week Kiowa returned the game. It was a cold, damp day
and consequently the crowd was small, but those that were there saw a
mighty good game. The best team work so far in the season was shown,
which shows that “Practice Makes Perfect.” Kiowa tried passes and open
work but with small success. Final score, Anthony 39, Kiowa 0.
On October 18 Conway Springs came for a game on Anthony’s field.
There was a large crowd at the game, as several members of the Athletic
Association got out and sold tickets. This was another easy victory for
the Anthony team. All the subs got to play and declared it was almost as
good practice as bucking the first team. Jones got
his ankle hurt and had to go out of the game the first
half. The score was 59-0.
The next Friday, October 24, Kingman came
here for the biggest game of the season. The day
was ideal, and a very large crowd was out. The teams
were well matched and the game was exciting right
from the first. At the end of the first half the score
Then it seemed Anthony lost pep and Kingman
was not long in taking advantage of the weakness
and scored again and again. In the last quarter,
however, the boys woke up and did some real play-
ing. About three minutes before the whistle blew
Randels went straight through center and made
another touchdown, the goal was kicked and the
score stood 24-20 in favor of Kingman. Anthony
kicked off and recovered the ball, by a series of line
plays and off tackle bucks the ball was rushed to
50Kingman’s four yard line when the final whistle
stopped the game.
The next week a very crippled team went to
Medicine Lodge due to the abundance of ducks in
the country, as some of the boys preferred duck
hunting to practice. With a bunch of subs the
team fought desperately for a half, at the end of
which the score stood 0-0. Truby was knocked out
in the second quarter. Brand and Randels were
allowed to suit up and finish the last half of the
game. The team tried many trick plays and final-
ly got the ball within striking distance, then Ran-
dels passed the ball to Gard and he made a touch-
down. There was no more scoring and the game
ended with a 6-0 victory for Anthony. This was
the first time an Anthony team had ever defeated
Medicine on their own field.
A week later the team played Deer Creek on
their home field. This game proved to be only a
farce. When the whistle blew the score stood 107-0. Practically every
man on the team made a touchdown.
On Armistice Day the team went to Cherokee to play the champions of
Oklahoma. They played on a garden plot and the punts and passes were
broken up by the telephone wires. The game was very close for a half,
but several of the Anthony men were knocked out so Cherokee scored at
will during the last half. The game ended 45-0 in their benefit. The fel-
lows can say for Cherokee, they had the best team played against this year.
The next week when Medicine returned the game, .with the regular
team we defeated them 59-0.
Argonia came to Anthony with an almost clean
record but we sent them home with an 88-0 de-
Then came the final game of the season. The
boys gave up their turkey dinners to play Attica
on Thanksgiving day. Attica came here with the
determination of settling old rivalry which exist-
ed between the two schools. No worse day could
have been picked for the game. The morning
dawned very cold and by noon it was snowing and
sleeting worse than any day last winter, the large
crowd we had contemplated having was of course
a disappointment but there was a good bunch of
students out to yell, as well as some loyal business
The teams were compelled to wear gloves
while playing. The game was a close contest, all
the way thru, but when the final whistle blew the
score stood 16-0 in Anthony’s favor. The twotouchdowns were made by Suesz and Randels, and Randels also made a drop
This closed one of the most successful seasons that an Anthony team
has enjoyed. Nine out of the thirteen games were won. Next year prom-
ises to be even a greater success. Jones, Faubion and Randels go out, but
their places can be well filled.MALrtOWOf

Captain Randels playing his third year of basketball held down the
left guard position. He generally took the ball from his opponent and
cleared the floor with his dribble toward the basket. He had the knack of
finding the basket pretty regularly also.
“Dutch” Potter, the speedy little forward, was always hitting the
basket if given only half a chance. He sure will reach his “Climax” next
Jones at left forward was playing a stellar game until he played
hooky at school one day. He was then laid on the shelf for the rest of
Halbower broke in at forward and proved to be a real basket hitter
before the season was over. He showed a good scrapper and seldom failed
to rough his opponent just a little the harder.
Whitney, playing at right guard, always had the knack of beating
his opponent to the ball. He is a Junior and another season has big possi-
bilities for him.
Truby at center played a good clean game artd usually got the jump
on his opponent. He always played a hard, clean and consistent game.
He has another year in H. S. Basketball.
Brand at guard broke into the game a little late in the season. His
hard, fast playing won a place for him on the team. He is a Sophomore.
Miller played “sub” at forward and hit the basket pretty regularly at
his favorite angle.
Griesinger, too, played “sub” at forward and bids well for a permanent
place on the squad next season.
Hoopes played “sub” at guard and showed up well. He has another
year for Basketball and with his usual hard practice should be a regular
next season.PURPLE EC GOLD

Pecause of the shortage of coal in December A. H. S. was closed for
several weeks, of course the students were all glad for the liberal holiday
but on the other hand in some cases, it was wished things might have gone
on as per schedule. One of these cases was Basketball. As it happened
the teams did not begin to work until about the first of January, a month
or more later than the neighboring schools. But when things did begin
they went with a bang.
At the end of the second week the teams were picked. The members
of the girls’ team were:
Gladys Rankin, Captain ..............Forward

Our first game was with Kiowa, January 14, on the Kiowa court. As
a few of the parents objected to the teams going in mixed crowds, it was
arranged that the teams should be allowed two cars each, and the girls
were to have a chaperon for each car. This made expenses quite a bit
more, for a number of the players had cars of their own which would have
been donated gladly if they could have picked their load, but it could not
be so. Cars were hired to take the teams. Of course the teams were not
consulted on the matter but we smiled sweetly and said, “It might have
The girls’ game that night was too one-sided to be interesting. We
had only had two weeks practice while they had been out at it for six
weeks. They had us outclassed in team work, size, and especially goal
throwing. The final score was 20-8 in their favor.
56The boys' game was considerably different. After Anthony got
warmed up and used to the court they laid Kiowa in the shade in ; 11 re-
spects. The score was Anthony 30, Kiowa 20.
Two nights later, Saturday night, the Coach took the boy's tea n to
Harper to play. This game was close and very exciting as both teams
put up a good clean fight all during the game. When the final whistle blew
Anthony had 21 points to Harper’s 15.
The next Friday night the teams went to Caldwell. For a while it
looked as if the trip would have to be given up because of the icy condition
of the roads, but luck came our way and we were permitted to go. The trip
was made with no accidents, but with much sliding and slipping of the
cars and consequent screaming of the girls. The girls’ game was an easy
victory for Anthony as our team outclassed them in every respect. The
girls’ score was 13-7. The boys’ game was close all through and at no time
was anyone sure how the game would come out. The point made by Ran-
dels just before the final whistle blew decided the game in our favor by a
score of 16-15. After the game the Caldwell teams invited our teams to
a spread in the Domestic Science room and we were introduced to the mem-
bers of their teams. We were certainly treated royally and came back
with a good impression of Caldwell.
The next Saturday Harper was supposed to play us on our court but
they decided not to come. A game was then substituted with the Alumni,
in which the High School team defeated them 38-25.
On February 6, Caldwell came over here for the return game. This
was the first game of the season on our court but due to some of the
students getting out and selling tickets we had a very good crowd. As in
the other Caldwell game both Anthony teams were victorious. The girls’
score 18-9 and the boys’ score 38-12. After the game we served them to
oyster stew in the Methodist church basement.
The next Friday Kiowa came here to play. This proved to be a hard
fought game, especially for the girls. The Kiowa girls made the state-
ment that they would beat Anthony no matter how they did it. Beat us,
they did! We were ahead till the second half but they crowded up on us
and beat us 18-14. Our boys had no trouble in defeating them by a score
of 25-13. Excellent team work was displayed all through the game.
On February 20 we went to Wellington for our first game with Sum-
mer High. Their court was very good. The girls’ game was not very ex-
citing. Before the game started they were very dubious about the out-
come, in fact they admitted they were scared of us as we only missed beat-
ing them by one point at the Winfield Tournament in 1919. But a3 early
as the first half it was quite evident that we were defeated. Coach Dixon
had changed the places of two of the girls and that put them to a great dis-
advantage. Pauline Potter got knocked out in the first half and Helen
Whitney took her place and played a very good game. The score was 13-29
to Summer’s advantage.
The boys certainly played well, displaying the best team work of the
year. Wellington boys went into the game confident of the victory. But
they soon realized they were up against a better team than themselves.The game was fast, however, and the final score was Anthony 28, Sum-
As there was no game scheduled for February 27 Coach Reidner took
the boys to Spring to play. Because of the rivalry between the two schools
the game was sure to be hard fought. Anthony’s team work was poor. In
this game Anthony met their first defeat, the score was 8-35. In our next
game with Spring, March 2, the game was closer, the score being almost
tied all the game. The team played better basketball and not so much
roughness. Again the score was for Spring by 20-14.
Our last game was with Wellington on our court. There was an excep-
tionally large crowd and much enthusiasm was demonstrated by both sides.
Mr. Reppert refereed a good game. The girls’ teams both put up a hard
fight but Sumner again defeated Anthony by a score of 39-22. However,
the boys piled up many more points than the opposing team. Halbower
displayed his skill in placing the ball in the basket. The final score was in
Anthony’s favor 30-12.
This ended a very successful season for the boys, having won eight
out of ten which were played. But not so for the girls. In the season of
1919, the girls went through undefeated but this year luck seemed against
them and they lost four pf the six games played. However every one did
their best. Next year Anthony will make a strong bid for the state cham-

Senior Class History
We, the class of ’20 in order to leave a more veracious account of our
past deeds and achievements do hereby bequeath and dedicate this, an
authentic history of our High School years, to our submissive successors,
who hope, sometime in the near future to occupy uur exalted position.
It was truly a great day in the history of the town and we feel sure
the effects were felt all over the state—when nearly four years ago seventy
green-looking scared freshman climbed the stairs and were informed by
the Seniors that they must have tickets for chapel—but we were looking
out for them and they didn’t fool us.
For a while we were somewhat trampled upon, but gradually
growing more confident of ourselves we held a class meeting—elected ('lin-
ton Lett president and planned a weinie roast which was held in Truby’s
The Seniors entertained for us and although we were all stiff with
fright we had a very good time.
We next had a Hallowe’en party at the Methodist church and then
finished the year with a party at the Fair Grounds which will long be re-
membered for the great amount of oranges and pop that we consumed.
We entered upon our sophomore year gloriously triumphant, for we
had passed one milestone toward graduation. The first social event of the
year was a kid party at Sloop’s Hall. Long glistening curls, short skirts,
and knickerbockers were in evidence and we enjoyed the games and re-
freshments which were childhood favorites.
Another impressive remembrance of our Sophomore year was the
“Walkout” on Washington’s Birthday. How we enjoyed that hafl holiday
—and the finals which followed.
Quite early in the Spring, we could not resist the lure of the country,
so we had a picnic supper at Bluff City, although it was cool, a huge bonfire
kept us warm and added romance to the setting.
By this time we Sophomore girls had become such excellent and effi-
cient cooks that the Juniors simply would have no one else prepare and
serve the banquet for the Seniors. In our butterfly wings, we carried off
the event with wonderful success.
We closed the year with a picnic at Drury. Although the class arrived
in installments, we all had a good time and received a healthy coat of tan
One of the first social events of our Junior year was the Freshman
reception, an annual event of the Anthony high school, at which time the
Freshman meet their future school mates and get a taste of the hardships
and knocks that they will have to endure during their first year.
The next event that aroused the spirit of the Juniors was the melon
party. Don’t you remember how Chink Carr swiped some of the melons
and hid them in his Buick? Well, perhaps you don’t, but we know six or
eight who do. Later four Junior boys entertained the rest of the class at
the home of our President, Edward Jones.

The Senior class of 1919 proved their social ability when they enter-
tained the Juniors with a Valentine program, which was highly enjoyed
(especially the stick candy), by every member of the class and school.
About this time our music instructor, Miss Prosser, commenced w’ork
on the operetta the “Mikado,” which proved a great success.
On May the tenth the Juniors entertained the Seniors at a reception
and several members of our class gained fame for themselves in the farce,
“Heirs at Lawr,” given for the Seniors’ amusement. The reception and din-
ing rooms were decorated in Japanese style. Miss Cunningham of the Do-
mestic Science and Art Department and our class sponsor supervised the
work. The next social gathering of the year of 1919 was the party given
by the High school girls; in honor of the Senior girls.
The last stunt that the Juniors pulled off was the picnic at Drury the
last day of school. We had such a good time that a few forgot to start
home early enough to escape the rain storm and spent most of the night in
After a glorious vacation we re-entered the ranks of High School for
the fourth time with an enrollment of forty-one.
We immediately proceeded to organize with Edward Jones, President;
Eugene Galloup, Vice President; Charley Carr, Secretary and Treasurer,
and Ray Randels, yell leader.
First, to show our social ability we entertained the Freshies on Friday
evening and to let them appreciate and enjoy the fresh air, some were
taken for a car ride. After seeing that they were not overburdened with
clothes they were left to walk back to town.
The coal shortage stopped our progress for four weeks but we returned
on December 29, with renewed “pep” to finish our Senior year. The sec-
ond semester found our class somewhat decreased in number but not in
spirit—and so to start the second semester out right we gave an oyster
stew as a parting shot at Marlin Faubion who was soon to leave us. The
party was well attended especially by the Senior boys, there being four
present, but the Juniors came and more than made up the deficiency.
Four other members of the class also have left us. Marie Elliott at-
tending Wichita Business College, Eugene Pennington entered a high
school in Missouri, Clair Cox persuaded another member of our class to go
before the minister and we lost Beatrice Pollock. Gladys Nordgren also
became dissatisfied with her last name and is with us no more.
Not being able to give the Juniors presents at Christmas we presented
them with Valentines instead. As we didn’t want to disappoint the Fresh-
men we also served stick candy.
The Junior Farce people with a month’s work presented on April 24,
1920, “A Girl to Order,” with Cary as a girl.
There were so many talented Seniors but no suitable building could
be found to display this talent so no Senior play was put on.
The Juniors entertained us with a magnificent banquet on April 24,
which was enjoyed by members of both classes.
Our Bacalaureate services were on May 16, at the Methodist church.
U And Last but not Least, we graduated in the Methodist church on May 20.

(Djc Calc (Ouija CLctIi
It is human nature to always be prying into the secrets of the future
and the class of 1920 as they stand on the threshold of their life’s work
would lift the curtain which conceals their future destiny; if perchance
they might know where fate will lead them from the doors of the old
A. H. S. Ouija the prophetess, reveals many strange things to her faithful
devotees and two members of the class, Beth Smiley and Nellie Helmley,
who seem to possess the proper control were chosen as the one3 to hold the
seance and see what secrets Ouija might reveal.
Their first thought was of Gladys Allen, always a leader in her class—
surely she would have a brilliant future. Long Ouija wavered and then
laboriously spelled—South Africa, converts heathen—and we thought of
course it meant a missionary—when low, she finished—to dance.
Then Ouija told of a Handout Joint down Bowery Way with Louise
and Eugene Galloup as genial managers, the story ended with the words—
Camels and Two percent.
When asked of the two friends Hazel Birchenough and Valora Black-
burn we were told that they were to run a boarding school. Valora would
organize a dancing class and also a very prosperous class in flirtation by
correspondence. And our quiet girl Kathryn Boyers — Ouija almost
blushed in the telling that ten years hence would find her in “Kutie Kewpie”
Sunshine Alley’s great success.
After this we were obliged to rest for a while but Ouija soon recovered
her composure and resumed. We were told that Louis Burlie in the short
space of a year would attain great popularity as captain of the Manchester
Rubberneck Team, and Leslie Burgmeier is to be Lord High Executioner in
the Bashful Society of the same city.
When asked of Lillian Brubaker our brilliant pianist—Ouija wavered
and finally said—she could but wouldn’t, but of Ermal Cummings there
was much to be said concerning her work in the prevention of Arguments
between married people.
Upon being consulted about Charles Carr, Ouiia promised that he
would meet his fate in the famous movie actress Ura Lyre, and Clarence
Davis, in the short space of five years would become a well known lawyer,
being retained as counsel for Freckle Chaser Company of wfhich Edward
Jones is the prize salesman by his demonstration of before and after.
Concerning three of our class members, Paul Heck, Donald DeTar, and
Thomas Kuhns, a harrowing prophecy was unfolded—owing to their scien-
tific research work in trying to establish communications with Mars—thru
the action of some high explosives with w’hich they are working they will
be summarily dispatched to that planet but their relatives need have no
fear for they will return safely in the same wray that they went.
Mr. Edgerton has declined a second term as president and is taking a
short rest in Anthony. Ray Randels sings at pink teas, devoting the pro-
ceeds to Settlement Work in Harper. Miss Fessenden’s Lectures on the
Darw’in theory have been well received in both this country and Europe.
When asked of Raymond Frye and Marion Warren we wfere told that
owing to their inability to land themselves a wife with a Ford, they would
try their luck with a flivver of the air, with better success.
71John Griswold and Nellie Comes, we wondered what Ouija would say
—truly there is a brilliant future—a traveling two piece orchestra with
John and Nellie teaching and giving entertainments in folk dancing, chorus
work, violin, piano and elocution, with Clarence Lydick as manager. And
of Gladys Hatfield and Carl Wharton we were surprised to know that two
years would find Gladys as a beautiful model for ladies’ fancy wearing
apparel at Jett’s, and Carl is also employed as hair dresser, he knows exact-
ly how to put in the crimps.
When consulted about the teachers of the A. H. S. Ouija wrote rapidly
and readily and five years certainly brings changes, for Miss Ludeman is
at this time a fervent exponent of the Lovers Stroll, Miss Marty is the
director of the Happy Hooligan Jazz Orchestra at Shook. Miss Mulvehill
is coaching a Missourian for his coming match with Dempsey. And Marie
Allen runs a confectionery—but the advice came—beware of sweets. Mrs.
Morris is now engaged in keeping order in her home but not with such
great success as at the old A. H. S. Now for our brilliant pupil Lucile Mul-
ford we were surprised when Ouija told that in the short space of ten years
she would develop into the Champion Tiddle De Winks player of the town.
And our friend Charles McCaleb—what of him—two short years would
find him as owner, manager and living exponent of an exclusive barber
shop. Both are located at No. 13 Mexican Avenue, Kansas City.
Of our Athletic Girls, Pauline Potter and Gladys Rankin—a brilliant
future was foretold—doing the double somersault act for the Great Fakir
Consulted further concerning our teachers we were told that five
years still find Mr. Reidner living in single blessedness, while Miss Schmidt
has her life’s wish and is living in Kiowa and Miss Smith still hurls chunks
of Geometry at the unfortunate Freshmen of Freeport. Miss Smiley no
longer teaches—she sings in the Merry Widow Cabaret. Mr. Sidney has
been elected U. S. Senator from Arkansas while Miss Cooke has developed
into our admirable specimen of domesticity.
We could hardly believe it when Ouija told us that two short years
from her graduation day Gertrude Cooper would be known as a trainer of
elephants in Barnum and Bailey’s circus, where Grace Clark is also a
famed naturalist—for she never uses make up.
Concerning the future work of our old friend Winifred Rhodes we
were told that her greatest work had been to establish a home for friend-
less cats. Ethel Atkinson is ticket seller of the Come Hither Theatre in
For Evelyn Roach and Etta Stites, Ouija prophesied a brilliant career
as joint managers of a pop factory located somewhere in Oklahoma..
By this time Ouija was very weary and when asked concerning Lloyd
Veatch it only said—you know it—Good Night.

Our ship we launched in '17
With a hardy Freshman crew.
And we sailed for unknown seas I ween
With a pilot staunch and true.
Away on a four years voyage
With the faculty at the helm.
In our search for useful knowledge
We sailed through many a realm.
We touched at the Isle of Sophomore
When our first year’s voyage was e’er,
Then away to the Junior Mainland
Not knowing just what was in store.
Far out on the rolling ocean
Our battles were fought and won.
A few of our comrades have fallen.
But the rest of the crew sailed on.
On to the port of Commencement
Which we hailed from our four years cruise,
Of course at times may have varied
Our aim never once did we lose.
“Tonight w'e have launched” is our motto
And “Where shall we anchor” our craft?
When at last the long cruise is ended
And our voyage is over at last.
So farewell to thee old A. H. S.
We shall all miss you aplenty,
But through the years we trust you will ever
Remember most kindly the class of 20.

A Senior’s Meditation.
When we in the Freshman ranks did
Wo looked with awe at the Senior
And thought that if we in that place
Our greatest troubles soon would flee.
Now we inhabit the high place,
But still our troubles have to face,
Coupled with sorrow, work and fun
That started when we had just begun.
The ocean wide we heped to span.
Filled with the learning of the land;
Knowledge we thought we had galore,
But, Lo! the distance of the sho-e.
Parody by the Sophomores.
Lost night as I lay on my pillow,
Last night as I lay in my bed;
I wondered if ever these lessons
Could be pounded into my head.PURPLE ft GOLD
We’re loyal to our classes
And to the Purple and Gold;
hor a bright luture we arc- planning,
For the class we love the best.
We’re the class of 1920
We’re the class that’s full of pep,
As we glance back o’er the years,
We recall fend memories,
Of the days we spent in Anthony Hi
Never they will fade away,
As we leave you now, never to return
So dear old High School, good-by.
Our Green and White has never been defeated
In all the sports that we enjoyed;
May the other classes be victorious
In everything they do.
