Class of 1927
Now the history of the Class of '27, of the High School of the City
of Arriba, County of Lincoln, State of Colorado, is in this wise:
In 1923 there entered into this Land of Learning, fourteen seekers of
knowledge. Some of these had come from the Arriba grades, and some had
come from other schools.
On entering this land, they were received with wild welcomings and
rejoicings by upper classmen, and most of all by the Sophomores, who, be-
cause of their fierce taste for Freshmen discomfort, did pounce upon them,
and did cause them endless torment. But soon the Freshmen became accus-
tomed to their unnatural surroundings, and became one amongst the rest.
They entered into the spirit of A. H. S. with much vigor, and before
the year ended, the class, through its basketball ability and other achieve-
ments, had placed its name upon the hall of fame.
At the end of the year everyone decided that A. I-I. S. was the place
to gain great knowledge.
At the beginning of the second term, the Class of '27, remembering
in their dignity, the days of their greenness, gave unto the class of '28 two-
fold of the torture that had been given them.
And there came to Arriba a' professor who bade them to organize
their class into a body, and to take upon themselves the honor of the peppiest
and best class in the school. This they did, and have maintained that honor
all through their high scho-ol career.
In the course of events, the Class lost three of its members, but the
remaining eleven toiled on and succeeded in holding the title of the best class
in Arriba High, and in keeping a high standard in athletics and literary ac-
It happened that there came unto A. H. S. to be Juniors fourteen
students. They had gained for themselves previously an honorable title and
lived up to it diligently. They entertained themselves and the schoo-1, and in
turn were entertained. They prepared before the Seniors a banquet, which
was the custom, and gave unto them flowers.
It came to pass that in the Carnival they made great contributions
to the school.
Also they gave a play which was the first Junior play ever given in
Through their athletics and literary achiew ements, they gained great
fame both for themselves and their school. One from the midst was chosen
to go to Boulder to compete in oration against the best in the state.
Thus they continued.
Page 12 ' - -N g
Now this, the fourth year, in the history of this great and wonder-
ful Class of '27, has been one of hard labo-r and with little resting by the way-
The pride of the Class having waxed great, they decided to adopt
for themselves a seal which was set in a ring.
It also happened that this great and wonderful Class did wish its
Wisdom and history to be written in the great book, "THE ARRIBANH, and
so they chose from amongst them committees to write the Class Will, Proph-
ecy, History, Song, and Poem.
Now it came to pass that these Seniors gave a great play, "Mammy's
Lil' Wild Rose", for which they received much praise.
From their number, were chosen great ones to sing in the Operetta,
and to enter into the Literary and State Contests.
At the end of their journey, they were feted by the Juniors who had
heretofore shown little respect for the Seniors.
Those who have toiled together and made this history are:
Denver, of the House of Biby.
Leonard, the only son of the House of Schrack.
Cecil, the first son of James, of the House of Morgan.
Mary, whose surname is Miller.
Florence, the second daughter of Edward of the House of Swallom,
who is a tiller o-f the soil.
Mable, the most diligent daughter of the House of Peckham.
Max, the second son, of the House of Hutchins, whom the Class of
'27 did choose for President.
Ted, a Kolassa, whose wicked eye has cast many an underclassman
into a fit of fear.
Flora, the eighth child, of the House of Fruhling.
Agnes, Whose surname is Gourley.
Evelyn, the first daughter, of the House of Smith, who is contem-
plating changing her name, and
Margaret, who speaketh these words of enlightenment to you.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Board of Educatio-n, Superintendent, Teachers and
Upon behalf of my client, the Class of 1927, of Arriba High School,
of the City of Arriba, State of Colorado, U. S. A., I have called you together
upon this solemn and serious occasion, to listen to her last will and testament,
and to receive from her dying hand the few gifts she has to bestow in her last
moments. She has tried to be just, as well as generous and impartial, and to
distribute wisely unto those who will make the best use of such gifts as she
has in her power to bestow, the talents that have served her faithfully these
four years. She hereby gives into your possession, praying that you will ac-
cept Ihem as a sacred trust from one who has gone before.
Listen, now, one and all, while the document is read as duly drawn
up and sworn to:
We, the Class of 1927, in twelve individual and distinct parts, being
about to pass out of this sphere of education, dispose of the following in this
We give and bequeath to our dear faculty a sweet and unbroken
succession of restful nights and peaceful dreams. No longer need they worry
over us. It has been a hard strain on them for Seniors at all times are said
to be difficult to manage.
We give and bequeath to our dear Superintendent, Professor R. C.
Travis, our sincere affection, our deepest reverence, our heartiest gratitude and
the wealth of our eternal memory. In attempting to pay for all he has done
us, including the faithful instruction during the term at Arriba High, we make
over to him, a heavy mortgage on our future in the Great Unknown Beyond.
We again give and bequeath to our beloved faculty, all the
amazing knowledge and startling information that we have furnished them on
various examination papers. We authorize them to give out such of this in-
formation to the world as they may feel the world is ready to- receive. We
trust they will also feel at perfect liberty to make use of all such bits of wis-
dom and enlightenment for the education of the classes to come after us.
This, of course, is left entirely to their personal discretion.
We give and bequeath to the Junior Class all the boys who could
not keep pace with the brilliant girls who compose this Class.
Item : .
We likewise give and bequeath to this same Junior Class, as a stu-
dent body, Theodore Kolassa's knowledge of Science, Art, and the Universe,
in whole, or in part. VVe trust the class may be able to survive it.
Page 14 W
The following may seem but trifling bequests but they are valuable
assets to- those who receive them:
First-To our sponsor, Mr. Travis, the profound admiration and ever-endur-
ing friendship of the Class of 1927, individually, as well as collectively.
Second-We give and bequeath to the Sophomore Class as a whole, the right
to beco-me brilliant Seniors, and the eighth graders now to become jealous
Third-We give and bequeath to the Freshmen Class, any overlooked cuds of
4 gum. We have sometimes had to rid ourselves of these in too much haste
to be able to choose the most desirable means of disposal.
Fourth-To Miss Twist, the balance in our class treasury to be used in buying
a pair of rubber-soled shoes for detective work. We are sure she will
need these to keep track of the librarians to be.
Fifth-To Mr. Nichols, we solemnly will the right to ruin his desk by calling
the assembly to order with the gavel.
Sixth-To Miss Brown, the right to have her English Classes buy as many En-
glish books as she sees fit.
Seventh-To Mrs. Flarty, we will the right to supervise the musical department
in New York City, and to give a program whenever she likes.
Eighth-To Stanley Gee, Cecil's gift of gab.
Ninth-Florence wills her ability to sing in the State Contest to Johanna. We
are sure she will sing in the contest anyway.
Tenth-To George Youngdahl, Lenoard's ability to play basketball and also
some of his lengthiness.
Eleventh--To Clarence Reinemer, Denver's desire to graduate from high
Twelfth-Ted Kolassa wills his quietness to Ray Ballard.
Thirteenth--Max wills his beauty to anyone who may need such.
Fourteenth--To Mary, Viola., Katherine, and Bernice, Mabel wills her studious
Fifteenth-Margaret wills her graceful slenderness to Agnes Davies, thinking
she will gladly accept it.
Sixteenth--To Zelda, Ethel, and Eva, Evelyn wills her ability in leading on
through A. H. S., a certain Junior.
Seventeenth-To Naomi Blair, Mary Miller wills her plumpness. We feel she
will need it in playing basketball next year.
Eighteenth-To Velma Clark, Agnesslsmaiiness.
Nineteenth-To anyone who will accept, Flora wills her ability as Editor-in-
Chief of the Arriban.

The Class of 1927 for a long while was undecided as to how they
should learn of their future. Finally it was decided that they go to a Prophet.
Fair and wise prophet, guardian of the unseen Things to Be, the Class
of 1927 of Arriba High School is about to pass forever out of school life into
life's school. Roll back the curtain of the future, and prophesy unto us what
the future of -each of the fair young women and brave young men is to be.
They tell me that by mere contact with the personal belongings of individuals
you are able to read their future, and accurately foretell coming events. With
this in mind, I have brought you these thirteen handkerchiefs, fragrant with
the personalities of these twelve graduates and their Superintendent of whom
I speak. Do you, then, look into the years to come and relieve our anxious
hearts of the worry that weights them down because we cannot guess what is
in store for us.
fProphet takes first handkerchiefj b
I see an immense billboard, and what does it say? "A Second Mel-
ba-greatest opera singer of the day l-Flora Fruhlingf'
CProphet takes second handkerchief!
Ah! Thirty, or forty years hence I se-e a rich man-a banker-rid-
ing in his aeroplane, counting out his money-wearing his diamonds-Whose is
it? His name? O yes, I see now-Theodore Kolassa. Ted always was liber-
al so if A. H. S. needs any money call on him.
CProphet takes third handkerchiefj
The owner of this handkerchief is rather short and fat and also cross,
but I guess her occupation calls for being somewhat strict in order to make
the children mind. She is a school teacher-Florence Swallom.
CProphet takes fourth handkerchiefj
In this handkerchief I can see a great po-wer plant of which Leonard
Schrack is manager and president. It is one of the largest electric light plants
ever operated. This would be a dark old world if it were not for Olie.
CProphet takes fifth handkerchiefl
A great many lives depend upon this young lady. She is a nurse in
St. Anthony's hospital-Mabel Peckham.
CProphet takes sixth handkerchiefj 'i
This picture discloses the private office of a great corporation, the
Rock Island Railroad. At the desk is seated Denver Biby, president of this
great firm. A free ride any time to the Class of '27.
CProphet takes seventh handkerchief!
In this handkerchief I see a private stenographer of the Brecht Candy
Company. She looks very tired for she has much work to do besides writing
a letter each night to Cecil. She is Mary Miller.
Page 16 -
CProphet takes eighth handkerchiefl
The signs here seem to indicate that this young man will be a lawyer.
His speeches are very effective. and he is capable of much deep thinking-
Max Hutchins. Who ever thought that Max would change from a farmer to
CProphet takes ninth handkerchiefl
Did anyone in Arriba suspect that one of the Seniors of 1927 would
b-e a movie star? This young lady always did like to read movie magazines,
but we didn't think it would come to this-Margaret Freel.
CProphet takes tenth handkerchiefl
This picture discloses a young man on a shining black horse in a
large forest reserve. He has sharp dark eyes and can readily detect anything
that may be going on in the forest.-Cecil Morgan.
CProphet takes eleventh handkerchiefl -
This picture discloses a large drug store. Behind the counter is a
rather small girl with golden curls. She is a pharmacist. Her name is Agnes
CProphet takes twelfth handkerchiefl
It will be a great surprise to a number of you to learn that Evelyn
Smith did not follow the occupation you expected, but is a telegrapher for
the Union Pacific R. R. in Chicago, Illinois.
CProphet takes thirteenth handkerchiefj
You will all be surprised to know that your Supt., Mr. Travis, will
be publisher of the Denver Post twenty years hence. He is learning the
trade with a small hand press. He thinks the Class of '27 will want to keep
up with the best news that can be had.

SENIOR CLASS SONG
Perfect Year for '27
When we come to the end of our school days dear
And we stand alone in the world
While our visions lead to a great career
From the joys that the past unfurled.
Do you think what the end of our school days here
Will mean to the Class of '27?
We will leave this school with regretful tears,
From our classmates, one and eleven.
Well this is the end of our last school year
We're starting our journey of life,
But we leave this school which to all is dear
With a wish for upward strife.
For memories will paint from our past career
The deeds we will ne'er regret,
When the end of our high school days is near
We've made friends we can't forget.
Air :--End of a Perfect Day.
SENIOR CLASS POEM
Our high school days are ended, and 'we're graduated at last.
The fondest memories are fading, and the old school days are past.
NVe shall think, and yes, we'll remember of the days that we passed there.
Where we toiled and labored and conquered the things that taught us to care.
And yea when we recall them., thoughts come to us one by one
Of the good old days of High School where we were sometimes loath to come.
But we find in our mind's eye to draw from, a. picture of co-lorful hue
And also of things we remember that the teachers never knew.
But- only ourselves shall praise us, and only ourselves shall blame
When we've realized our ambitions or gained for ourselves a name
But each one is going his way now, and Seniors no longer we'll be
For we're leaving dear A. H. S. behind us, and journeying the world to see.

THE ARRIBAN-1927 '
The greatest task facing the Staff was the raising of necessary funds.
Subscriptions, bake-sales, class dues, plays, and advertisements all contributed
to the building of the fund. Suitable pictures also made a big task, but this
was conquered. The books were ready for distribution the last of May, a si-
lent proof of their patient and diligent effort.

The Girls' Chorus was organized at the first of the term by Mrs.
Flarty. Most of the girls have shown great interest in the work, and have done
some good singing for the school entertainments. The entire club, or repre-
sentatives of the group have rendered selections at every public school pro-
gram this year. The chorus, numbering twenty-four, has met twice a week
during school hours, and has often practiced late evenings. For the first time
in the history of the school, the girls have appeared in glee club uniforms.
Mrs. Flarty selected for the:
Margaret Freel Margaret Freel
Zelda Davis Mary Miller
Naomi Blair Zelda Davis
Early in the fall, Mrs. Flarty organized the Boys' Chorus. These
young men have worked up many fine selections, several of which they have
sung at public entertainments in unison with the Girls' Chorus. The Boys'
Glee Club has met twice each week, and has done some practice work eve-
nings. Bruce Keckler has sung many special numbers at school entertain-
ments. The boys chose white trousers and shirts and purple ties for their
glee club unifo-rms. Mrs. Flarty elected the following students for the:

The orchestra, directed by Mrs. Flarty, and assisted at times by Mr.
Nichols and Mr. Travis, has made a great deal of progress. The group meets
every Thursday evening for a two hour practice. The organization is com-
posed of fourteen pieces, all of which is entirely volunteer. All of the mem-
bers have taken a great deal of interest in the work. The orchestra has fur-
nished excellent music for plays and entertainments given during the year.

KANKONKER AND ANTI-CAN'T PARTIES.
The students of the A. H. S. have two political parties, the Anti-Can'ts
and the Kankonkers. Early in September, the teachers divided the student
body equally as to numbers and to scholastic and athletic ability. These par-
ties meet separately to draw up platforms which they believe will further the
interest of the school, and to nominate representatives to the Student Council.
The aim or purpose of two political parties in the school is to devise
a better working-plan to promote the general welfare of the school, to
arouse and to maintain better student interest and support in all school activi-
ties, and at the same time to provide the students with some idea of the purpose,
working plans, and possibilities of political parties. This plan for political par-
ties to introduce and boost school movements and policies is new in the school,
and it is hoped that the results will always be satisfactory. This year the
Student Council had more Anti-Can't representatives than Kankonker.
Back row left to right :--Bruce Keckler, Leonard Schrack, Lawrence Davis.

The Student Council consists of the President and representatives
from each grade. Mr. Travis sponsors this organization.
The Objectives of the Student Council are:
1. To substitute real democracy as a form of social and self-control
in place of teacher dominance, in other words, to substitute
internal for external control.
2. To acquaint pupils with the machinery, duties, and responsibili-
ties of the individual in a democracy.
3. To develop a respect in the group for group-made regulations.
4. To develop a spirit of willing co-operation between pupil and pu-
pil, and to encourage a closer relationship between pupil
5. To develop qualities of good leadership and intelligent follower-
6. To secure, through wise teacher guidance, the elimination of
those corrupt practices which have worked into the scheme
of democracy as it functions in civil life.
7. To afford pupils here and now the opportunity to live in a demo-
cratic organization, thus giving them the opportunity to prac-
tice with satisfaction the life of a good citizen.

On December 22, the faculty, alumni, and students of Junior and
Senior High School, met at the gymnasium for their Xmas party. The enter-
tainment Was furnished by groups doing original stunts.
This party was the most enjoyable social gathering of the year.
The Missionary Society, staged by the faculty, dressed in old-fash-
ioned clothes, was the most impromptu and clever performance we students
have enjoyed during our school days. The preacher's incorrigible son and the
punishment meted him will long be remembered.
"A Suitor Bold," a negro dialogue, presented by the Junior Class, re-
sulted in a lengthy applause.
The FFeShm611, W110 felt the Heed of instruction in love making were
seen to give undivided attention to this number of the program,
The Freshmen and Soph.0m0I'es Wrote and broadcasted from Station
A. H. S- all original Ch1'iStm2tS bed-time story which was so realistic that the
seventh and eighth graders could hardly resist hanging up their stockings be-
fore the party ended. D
The other numbers on the program were vocal and instrumental se-
lections given by Zelda Davis, Dewayne Clark, Ray Ballard, Dorothy Smith,
the Senior Class and Alumni chorus accompanied by Mrs. Flarty. After the
program, ,presents were exchanged and yuletide refreshments served.

In December Coach Nichols called the Basketball boys out to prac-
tice. With five experienced men and also a few new players showing up in
good form, the prospects for the season seemed bright. Fate, however, seemed
to be against the Bearcats for they won but one league game. The players
fought like demons in most of their games, making their opponents work for
every goal. Lack of team work, due to pronounced individual opinions of the
players on and how to play the game, was the team's chief drawback, and
was the biggest problem with which Coach Nichols had to cope.

At the beginning of the season, a large number of the fair sex flocked
to the gym for a position on the team. A hard task was in store for Coach
Nichols to pick a good team from among them. After the team was selected,
the attendance at practice decreased considerably. Flora Fruhling, the two-
lettered forward, was elected manager and captain to lead the brave crew on
to victory. The Arriban Bearcats succeeded in winning all their games except
two lost to Limon, thus winning second place in the Western League. Miss
Twist and Mr. Nichols deserve much credit for training the girls to play so-

Flora Fruhling has been captain of the Arriba Bearcats for two years,
and has filled the position faithfully. During her basketball career, she has
always played forward, and has made many baskets for A. H. S.
Agnes Gourley, o-ne of the Bearcats for three years, has been our run-
ning center. Her quick and accurate passing in getting the ball to our for-
wards has helped A. H. S. win many a game.
Evelyn Smith, although this was her first year on the first team, filled
the position of left guard exceptionally well. The Bearcats will miss her next
Bernice Youngdahl has played in the position of guard for three
years and has always been worthy of this position.
Ruth Copley, having had considerable experience as a substitute,
proved worthy this year of her position as forward on the first team. She has
made a fine showing shooting baskets. She and Flora showed splendid team
work in keeping the ball out of the hands of the guards.
Naomi Blair pro-ved to be a very quick and accurate girl for jumping
center. She usually succeeded in giving the Bearcats the advantage of the tip-
off. This was her first year on the team, and we are certain she will become
an excellent player before she graduates.
Viola Davis, Agnes Davies, Dorothy Cross, and Velma Clark were
strong substitutes for the regulars. We are certain when they play on the
first team next year they will cause our opponents much worry.

Dear Basket Ball Patrons:
The great love we expressed for basket ball
is all fake, and our hate for it
increases daily. The more we practice it, the more
it appears in our eyes a game of unskillfulness.
We feel ourselves in every way disposed and determined
to detest it. We can assure you that we never wished
to become star players. Our last practice
left an impression o-n our minds which by no means
convinced us of the high standards of our team.
The training rules would confine us entirely too much.
lf we were to become star players, we could expect nothing but the
strictest of training rules to follow, added to the dis-
pleasure of playing it. We have a craving
to play, but do not imagine that it is I
for basketball, for we could not engage in a sport more
inconsistent with the aim or education than thatg furthermore, we wouldn't be
likely to bring honor and fame to o-urselves and school.
you are aware of the fact that
we players speak sincerely and you will do us a favor if you
will not encourage, support or approve of it. Do not even
our coaches, as they are full
of overconfidence, and do not have a shadow
and training ability. Believe us
so opposed to basketball that it is impossible for us

Our Arriba High School is young and does not boast of many tradi-
tions, but those few are cherished by the students of our A. H. S.
Pity the Freshies! Each year they are lured or forced to a gala
party in their honor. The program consists in conducting the green Freshmen
through dark passages and dens of horror. After going through this formula,
they are accepted as high school students.
Early in the school year the Anti-Can'ts and the Kankonkers rage a
political battle in electing student council officers. The candidates give cam-
paign speeches, and on the election day the students vote by ballot.
Each fall the annual school carnival is held. The gymnasium is then
thrown open to a chaos of color and fun.
With the coming of the Christmas holidays, the students look for-
ward to the annual Christmas party. The high school and alumni have a
Christmas tree, and exchange gifts in the gymnasium.
It is customary in this school for the high school choruses to give an
operetta in the spring. All members of the chorus take part.
The Juniors give a banquet in honor of the Seniors in the late Spring.
The Seniors, High School Faculty, and the Juniors are present at this occasion.
Several years ago a Senior Class began the custom of presenting the
school with a gift. This custom has since become an unwritten law or tradi-
During the last week of the school year, the Seniors give a Class Day
Program displaying the talents of each member.
As the last dramatic performance of the school year, the Seniors

Mother's Letter to Olie
My dear Olie:
I hope you got to and from yo-ur room Without any mishaps during
that awful blizzard. I have been awfully worried about you, and I am so
lonesome I can hardly wait until the end of the week to see you., Be sure and
wear your woolen underwear and overshoes this cold weather. How are all
your teachers, and have they got any new clothes for spring?
You must study hard and be a good boy. It's awful hard scratching
for your pa and me to pay your board and room, and unless the chickens start
laying, you will not be able to finish out the term. I am glad your white duck
panties didn't fit because we couldn't have paid for both the purple tie and
panties. It seems that music teacher is always trying to heap bills on us poor
country jakes. Her idea of going to Denver strikes me as perfectly silly when
times are so hard. I have had to wear a patched petticoat for nigh onto four
years, and now she wants us to help finance your trip to Denver. Then, too,
poor pa has needed a bottle of freezone for over a year for his corns, but he
couldn't afford it. I'm sure those English and Physics examinations you was
tellin' about, must be awful. Do your best.
Be careful of yo-ur new suit, for you wont get another for a long time.
Be sure to wear your bib at meals. Don't getidown in the dirt with your suit
on or get stains on it.
You said the "itch" was getting spread around town, but I tinks if
you take a bath every three or four weeks and don't use anybody else's towel,
you wont catch it. I hear there is a lot of scarlet fever down there, too. Now,
Olie, dear, promise your ma to keep your feet dry, and don't let the girls kiss
you because that is a sure Way to spread diseases.
Page 48 mg
Be careful of your cornet and practice faithfully on it every day.
Don't let those roughneck boys break it up.
You say Bernice and Velma are bothering you with notes. Tell them
to leave you alone, and if they don't, tell the teacher. It is pretty cold up
here. It must be down there too. Be sure and wear your new underwear
and don't catch co-ld. Never go out Without your overshoes on. If that wool
underwear scratches too much, just put your summer underwear on beneath it.
It'll keep you warmer, too. We are going to sell Molly, old Jersey's calf, next
week, and then I will send you some money. Money is scarce these days, don't
spend it on foolish things, such as candy, shows, and girls.
I must go and milk. I'll be glad when you get home, so your poor old
pa and me can have some help about the chores.
P. S. Don't forget to wash behind your ears.
Olie's Letter to Mother
How is everything up there on the farm? It is getting warm down
here. I tuck off my Winter undies, but I left my summer ones on because I
know that summer will soon be here. I learned a new verse the other day and
it's so appropriate for this time of year that I must tell it to you. It goes like
"The twenty-first of March is spring:
The little birds begin to sing,
And if I had a piece of string
I'd tie is as tight as anything
To remember it will soon be spring."
Maw, the boys down here are starting to wear those overalls like I
used to slop the pigs in, maybe ya better send mine down. Be sure they ain't
got too many patches on the seat.
Did I tell you Prof. Travis put me in the Senior play. I'm supposed
to be a girl's "sweetie" as they call them down here and I am so bashful, Ma.
Why, I have to make love to her, hold her hands, kiss her, and--Oh! All
the guys laugh at me. .
I just about cry, I'll tell you, every time we practice. The teacher said
I did wonderful though. Oh say! I belong to the boys' glee club now too. Ii
sing second tenor if you know what that is. When Mrs. Flarty gave us our
tryouts to see what we could sing, I guess I must have squeaked purty bad.
At any rate the other kids just stood around and giggled and said "Oh Rass-
I played basketball the other n1ht, and Mama I'm so ashamed when
I have to come out in those little tiny short pants and sleeveless shirts before
all the girls and everybody. Truly, Mama, I think it is disgraceful. I get so
himbarrassed I can hardly play. '
You told me to tell the teacher if the girls continued to bother me,
but you know how it is. Velma seems to be the worst one in the whole lot.
I guess she kinda likes me awful much. Anyway when she looks at Mickie
and the others she grins at 'em kinda contempting like. Gee, you otter see her
