Another school year has become history. Its passing has brought to
us much We should like to preserve and many things We shall enjoy perusing
more with the passing of the years.
To aid us in keeping green the memory of our school days and In re?
calling those associations which We then formed and shall always cherish, this
volume has been written. ,
That this little book may reflect the spirit of the Arriba Schools and
recall many happy days is the mission of the 1928 Arriban.
To the members of the faculty of the Arriba Schools through whose
wise management and watchful care the work of this school year has been
successfully accomplished the 1928 Arriban is gratefully dedicated by

PROGRESS OF THE PAST YEAR
While progress is not always measured by material standards, it is a
fact that much greater benefit can be gained in any line of endeavor by the
Realizing this to be true, the Arriba schools have shown their pro-
gressive spirit of adding equipment this past year which will aid in the devel-
opment of the pupils here both physically and mentally.
In the gymnasium additional apparatus in the way of trapezes, rings,
parallel bars, and mats were added early in the fall. Here the pupils have
greatly enjoyed exercising under Mr. Peckham's watchful care.
The science department receiv ed about one hundred and fifty dollars'
worth of chemicals and apparatus which facilitated the work in chemistry.
The shop received a wood lathe which has enabled the boys to turn
out some extremely good-looking toys and furniture.
The assembly room boasts a new Webster's International Dictionary
which has been a great aid to the classes in English.
The Popular Science Encyclopedia in fifteen volumes now graces the
shelves of the hall bookcases, and has proven to be a source of great interest
to the pupils of both the junior and senior high schools.
About fifty new books of the best standard fiction, biography and
travel have been added to the library, enabling the pupils to find Wider
choice and greater enjoyment in their required reading.

The observance of the traditions of the Arriba High School begins
each year with the initiation of the freshmen.
This ordeal is heralded about as possessing horrors unmentionable,
but usually proves less terrifying than the freshmen have been led to believe it
will be. After they have been put thr,ough the vario-us stunts devised by the
upperclassmen, they are still able to enjoy the delicious refreshments which
are served to them.
A very popular event of each year is the school carnival. It is the
first public entertainment of the school year, and always attracts a large
crowd and nets a good sum of money which is used to finance the various proj-
ects undertaken by the school.
On the afternoon preceding the Christmas vacation, a Christmas
party is given in the auditoriumg faculty and pupils join in the merry-making,
and a gayly l3I'iH1m9d ChI'iStmaS tree With gifts for everyone adds to the enjoy-
ment of the occasion.
The preparation for and presentation of an operetta by the music de-
partment Of the SC11001 is 21 Yearly CL1Stom. It was observed this year by the
rendering Of the Japanese operetta, "Yanki San," on the evening of March
The dramatic events of the year consist chiefly of the plays given re-
spectively by the members of the junior and senior classes in the spring.
A gift presented by the senior class to the high school is an annual
The most significant social observance is the banquet served yearly by
the juniors in honor of the seniors.
Class Day exercises are held by the Senior class. Upon this occasion
they read their history, prophecy, poem, and Will, and sing class songs.
For the past three years the class in Journalism has published a
school paper, the Arriban. This year it W as changed from a bi-monthly to a
The issuance of a school annual is the most ambitious of our school
projects, involving much time and labor. The class in Journalism takes just
pride in presenting the volume of 1928.

The Senior Class History
With the exception of the class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty-Seven,
the class of Nineteen Hundred Twenty-Eight is the largest class that has ever
been graduated from the Arriba High Schoo-l.
The following entered high school as green but studious freshmen:
Lawrence Davis, Ray Ballard, Clarence Reinemer, Viola Davis, Esther Hohl-
feld, Ermal Spears, Katherine McFadden, Bernice Youngdahl, and Mary Palsa.
We organized our class in the early part of the year, choosing Mr. Gammill as
sponsor. This is the way we looked at the end of the first year at A. H. S.
In the fall of Nineteen Hundred Twenty-Five all, Ermal Spears,
returned as gay young sophomores. The class was glad tokwelcome tw
students, Lyall Beighle and Ray Dexter.

Miss McCallum was our sponsor through our second year. You will
see by this cut how we appeared when sophomores.
On Senior Sneak Day we, juniors, out-witted the upper classmen, and
found them before they left town. We followed them to the canons north of
Limon, and after tiring them out by fruitless attempts to lose us, we finally
left them to spend the day in peace. We had the satisfaction of showing
them we could keep up with them if we wished. '
Duringjjthe latter part of the year we 'put on a snappy comedy en-
titled, "Bashfu1 Mr. Bobs". We also decorated for the seniors and gave a ban-
quet for them in the M. W. A. hall. Mr. Nichols was our sponsor, and aided
Page 20 M --mm Q
us very effectually in accomplishing the preceding events. You will see us as
juniors in this cut.
During the past year, as seniors, we increased not only in knowledge,
dignity, and importance, but also in numbers. Jean Nelson, from Glenrock,
Wyoming', and Mabel Seaberg from Genoa, were added to our class roll. Earl
Pickett dropped out. Witli this subtraction and the former additions our class
consists of ten memb-ers: three boys, and seven girls.
During our senior year we have been strongly represented in athlet-
ics, seven of our number being members of the basket ball teams. All of us
were members of the High School Chorus and took leading parts in the oper-
etta, "Yanki San". All but two of us were members of the Arriba Wits' Club.
The senior class play which represented much hard Work, was the final scene
of our work in Arriba High School.
Mr. Parvin, our faithful superintendent, was our sponsor during our
And now we have chronicled the history of the class of '28, With

Having arrived in a large Californian city a day before my business
appointment required, I found time hanging heavily on my hands, and wan-
dered out to one of the city parks. I found a bench in a secluded corner, and
sat down to rest. A discarded newspaper attracted my attention, and I
picked it up glancing idly thro-ugh the advertising section. My eye was caught
by the following strange advertisement:
Trenton Court, Samuel R. Parvin,
Apartment 13 Oriental Crystal Gazer,
213 Park Avenue.
At first there seemed nothing significant in this, but gradually the
name began to recall old memories. Speeding! Rear guard! Talking in the
halls! Assembly Angels! Office-Why, of course, that was the name of our
superintendent at Arriba in 1928. Surely, this could not be the same man!
However, my curiosity was aroused, and I determined to investigate.
I walked over to a taxi and asked the driver to take me to the address. We
soon reached the apartment which was in a beautiful section of the city. A
young Oriental took my card, and I was soon shown into an elegantly fur-
nished, dimly lighted room. The furnishings were of oriental design and tex-
ture. A small table upon which stood some object, which I could not make
out on account of a covering of tapestry, caught and held my attention.
A slight stir, and the curtains opened-there, indeed, was Mr. Par-
vin, our old superintendent, but how strangely dressed! Robed in an oriental
costume of rich design and wearing a turban of harmonizing color upon his
head, his appearance gave me a shock.
Apparently, he didn't recognize an old pupil of his, in me. He quietly
glided to the table, motioning me to a chair. He then removed the tapestry and
revealed a crystal globe, gleaming faintly in the shaded light. A moment he
paused, and I noticed a sweet odor of incense pervading the air. In a voice
hushed to mysterious quietness he said, "What or whom do you wish to have
revealed to you ?"
Heavens! I hadn't thought of that! My mind worked fast-Why my
old classmates, of course. How wonderful if I could learn where they were
and see them in the magic crystal! I made my desire known. At once Mr.
Parvin's hands began to move. With a sinuous, uncanny motion they circled
and trembled, hovering about the globe. The peculiar light brightened in the
center and blurred, moving objects began to appear.
Then clearer vision came, and I could see a brass band proudly par-
ading in uniforms of red, trimmed with white stripes. Why, those were our
old class colors. And that band leader-Ray Ballard, without a doubt!
We had chosen him for our class ,president back in '28, but little did
we think he would one day be the proud leader of Sousa's band.
The gay parade passed on, and now a cozy cottage was revealed.
Several of our senior girls had worn diamonds-whose home could this be?
A shift in the crystal, and I saw inside the cottage, a plump little lady sitting
by the fireside, holding a white Persian cat on her lap. The cat seemed to be
her only companion. Then I recalled that all of Agnes' lovers had chosen the
The mist evaporated-then I saw a train rushing toward me. As it
drew nearer, the engineer, clad in grimy overalls, glanced toward me-Law-
rence Davis, with the same old mischief in his eyes!
The train sped on its way. A large building with the sign "United
Artists" came into view. A fashionably clad lady was coming down the steps.
My head swam, as she looked up, for it was no other than Katherine McFad-
den, who seemed so perfectly at home in this moving picture building. A
film star, now wouldn't you have been a bit dizzy. too?
Another change in the crystal sphere, and a magnificent pillared
building came into view. The White House! Surely, no classmate of mine had
risen so high. But who was that dignified, plump lady sitting in the arm
chair? She seemed to be entertaining distinguished guests. As she looked
up I caught the sparkle of brown eyes behind glasses and recognized Jean Nel-
son. Ah, I remembered how we used to feel sorry for Jean because her
mother was so particular about her associates. Maybe mothers know best,
I had not gotten over this surprise when I saw bars from in the cry-
stal ball. Bars? I shudderedf Surely, none of our old class had met such
a fate. I looked closer trying to identify this erring child of sin. Clarence
Reinemer!-But that did not look like a jail. Why, that was the cashier's
window in a fine looking bank. Wow! 'What a relief.
A whirl in the ball. A cloud of dust thrown up by an automobile
spinning along the highway. A small, well dressed woman sat at the steering
wheel, I recognized Mary Palsa. She was on her way to Denver where she
held a position as stenographer in the H. C. Penny store. Apparently she
was returning to her work after visiting friends in Arriba.
Another scene came into view. I saw a small house bearing the
sign, "Marcel Shoppe,,' "Work Guaranteed." Looking through the window I
saw a good looking man at the barber's chair, while toward the rear a round-
faced blond woman was marcelling a customer's hair. Yes, it was Bernice,
assisting her husband in a combined tonsorial and beauty shop.
A drug store next came before my eyes. Ice cream, soft drinks and
candy-all kinds of it. A tall, slight lady was serving behind the counter.
As she smiled I recognized Mabel Seaburg. How did she get here? Oh, yes,
I remember she did fall for 'that handsome druggist in Arriba years ago.
Sunset in the crystal ball. Fields of waving grain. Down the lane a
herd of cattle lazilycorning home. From the field a team of horses comes
driven by a tired farmer. In the yard behind the house a woman is feeding
chickens. Which of the girls could this be? As the scene brightened, I rec-
ognized Viola. Yes, I remember she married that farmer boy right after school
The light faded from the crystal ball. It had lost its magic, nothing
could be seen in its depths. Had I been dreaming? Dazed by these myster-
io-us things I staggered out. Had the future of the class of 1928 really been
shown to me? Time alone can tell.
HAPPY SCHOGL DAYS NOW ARE ENDED
Happy school days now are ended,
Problems solved and labors Wong
Joys and cares will soon be blended,
Life's realities begun.
Sailing on time's mighty river
Steering for the far-off shore,
May the love of virtue ever
Guide our bark in safety o'er.
Now We separate, but never
Shall these memories leave the heart.
Honored guardians faithful teachers,
Grateful thanks before we part.
Friendsl1ip's links shall ne'er be broken,
Bright shall gleam her golden chain
Tho' this last farewell be spoken
And we may not meet again.
Should our fairest vision perish-
Burst like bubbles seen no more-
Your kind precepts We shall cherish
Treasured up in memories' store.
Should the future, breathing o'er us
VVake the past, and, like a spell,
Bring this joyous scene before us
And our school days, loved so Well,
Oh, the joy 'twould give to greet you,
Friends and loved ones, tried and true!
What a welcome would await you,
And, till then, a last adieu.
"WATCH US CLlMB"
VVhen first through high school corridors
Our youthful, timid feet did pass,
We hesitated at the door,
An awkward, bashful freshman class.
We did not know which way to turn
On that momentous entrance day,
We chose the motto, "Watch Us Climb",
To guide us on our doubtful way.
VVhat pitfalls snared our trusting feet,
What rude contempt from older ones!
But on we pressed, determined yet
To climb in spite of thorns and stones.
And soon the jeering subtly changed,
Respect was forced despite their will,
We, knowing this, tried harder yet
To climb, and make more progress still.
Thus so-phomore, then junior year,
On wings of work and progress spedg
We knew, although we'd climbed so far,
More unscaled mountains lay ahead.
With flight of time came senior year,
VVhen we had almost run our race
With mountains almost scaled and won,
Still bravely climbing to our place.
We've come now to the closing scenes
Of high schools' gay, light-hearted time,
And, though we'll all choose different ways,
Our motto still is, "Watch Us Climb".

Departments of High School Work
The sciences offered in the Arriba High School are General Science,
Biology, Physics and Chemistry.
GENERAL SCIENCE .
General science is a course offered to the beginning science pupils.
Freshmen and sophomores may take this course. Its aim is to give a general
idea of the different sciences. The rudiments of physics, chemistry, biology,
physical geography, astronomy and physiology are studied. It is a very inter-
esting course and gives every pupil an opportunity to "get a taste" of the dif-
ferent sciences, and so enables him to make a wiser selection of sciences to
be studied later in his school career, and to make a choice according to his own
special talents and interests. Also, pupils who may never finish the high
scho-ol will have had some science which will be useful to them in their future
Laboratory work is done, and in the spring, field trips are taken for
the purpose of studying plant and animal life and their environment.
A class in biology, physics or chemistry is given each .,year. Mem-
bers of the junior and senior classes are eligible to this course, and a majority
of the class elects the subject, but a different, subject must be taken each year.
Chemistry was the subject taught this year. One hundred and fifty
dollars worth of chemicals and equipment was added to the former supply.
The text book used was Elementary Principles of Chemistry by Brownlee-
MANUAL TRAINING ,
To co-ordinate the work of the hand and the mind is the purpose of
this course. The pupils are taught how to make the various joints and then
to apply this knowledge in the making of useful and ornamental articles.
Special attention is given to the care and use of tools in the shop, the
filing and setting of saws, and the sharpening of edged tools.
A small lathe has been added to the equipment this year. The shop
is perhaps the busiest place in the school building. The bo-ys are not driven to
this class, but spend many extra hours on their projects.
Sixteen boys are taking manual training this year.
This is another vocational subject taught in our school.
Care and use of instruments, free hand lettering, arthographic pro-
jections, isometric drawings, the intersection and development of surfaces,
tracing of drawings and blue print work are the principal features of the
World history was the course in this department offered during the
past year. As the name implies, this course covers in a general way ancient,
medieval and modern history. The main effort has been to show relationships
and comparisons of other times with our own time. History furnishes a back-
ground for our present civilization, and as such it has been considered in the
class. Twenty-one students have been enrolled in this class throughout the
The algebra class this year was fairly well prepared to start its
course. A few had already had enough early preparation to give them a good
start. The first few months were spent mostly upon mechanical drills. After
these were thoroughly absorbed, the application to problems was given the stu-
dents. The algebra course is valuable in its teaching of application.
Geometry this year has be-en tried on a contract plan. Each student
must complete a certain amount of work within a week. The plan has led
more toward individual work for each student. They cannot depend upon
someone else to do their explaining. No courses beyond plane geometry were
offered during the year. .
Arriba High School has quite a complete course in foreign languages
this year. Two languages are studied, namely Spanish and Latin. The first
two years' work in each course is offered.
The work in Spanish I is studied mostly from a grammatical stand-
point. The most emphasis is placed on grammatical constructions, learning'
vocabularies, idioms, and conjugations, and learning the rudiments of conver-
sational Spanish. During the second semester, especially, more emphasis is
placed upon conversational Spanish, and more translation work is done than
during the first half of the year. The aim of the course is to give the stu-
dents a thorough knowledge of Spanish grammar and a good speaking vocab-
ulary. This paves the way for studying Spanish Literature and poetry, and
also helps the student to become more efficient in speaking and writing
During the second year of Spanish, a thorough review is made of the
most important and difficult co-nstructions, and verbs, and an intensive study
is made of Spanish short stories.
The latter part of this year Spanish newspapers were translated
which work not only increased the vocabulary of the students, but also gave
them more knowledge about the country of Spain and also of Mexico.
Several Spanish students this year started correspondences with boys
and girls of Spain. These letters were found to be most interesting as well as
In first year Latin an intensive study of grammar is made. Declen-
sions, conjugations, and grammatical constructions are thoroughly learned.
The students are led to understand the close relatio-nship between the Latin
language and our own native tongue. Latin thus studied, is an invaluable aid
to students in helping them to become more efficient in their English work.
Second year Latin is given over to a review of the most difficult parts
of Latin grammar and to the translation of Caesar's Gallic War. Special em-
phasis is again placed on co-nstructions.
Four years of English are offered in the Arriba High School, three of
which are required for graduation. ,
In the freshman year stress is laid upon oral and written composition,
including some training in public speaking.
Sentence and paragraph structure are studied in connection with com-
position work. The work is socialized to a great extent, friendly, construc-
tive criticism is encouraged.
Standard literature, based on the Colorado State Course of Study, al-
ternates with the work in composition.
In the sophomore year a more extensive study is made of grammatic-
al constructions. The sentence is considered from a rhetorical standpoint, and
a study of figures of speech and diction is given to aid in the appreciation of
the literary works read. A literary club was formed in this class soon after the
beginning of the second semester.
Tanner's Composition and Rhetoric is used as the basis of composition
study in years I and II.
In the third and fourth years of English, American Literature alter-
nates with English Literature. Masterpieces of literature are studied in both
prose and poetry, and compositions written.
This year a literary club was formed for the benefit of this class which
comprises the juniors and seniors. It was named "The Arriba Wits," and was
organized to give the pupils training in parliamentary rules, as well as in var-
ious forms of public speaking and writing. These sessions were presided over
in turn by the various members of the class. The programs, consisting of
speeches, declamations, compositions and humorous features, were made out by
a committee of the pupils, different pupils being chosen for each program. The
work was socialized, discussion and constructive criticism being encouraged.
It is believed the Wits' club was much enjoyed by the members and
that much practical benefit was derived from it.
Journalism is an elective subject in the Arriba High School curricu-
lum for which one year's credit is given.
In the first semester, training is given in collecting and writing news
for the monthly paper, "The Arriban". Harrington's "Writing For Print" is
the reference for class study.
In the second semester, while keeping up the editing and publishing
of the school paper, the class in journalism also prepares for the publication of
the school annual.
The present volume represents chiefly, the work of the 1928 class in
Fourteen students have been enrolled in the bookkeeping class this
year. A complete study of all accounts was taken up in the first few weeks.
This has been applied to a regular set of books in such a way that the student
gets the practical application. Special attention has been given to financial
statements. The course is valuable to the student in that they get a ,good idea
of method in keepingirecords.
The most practical subject taught in our high school is type-writing.
All the business correspondence of the world ,is now done in type-
writing, consequently there is a constant demand for good typists..
We have had twenty-four pupils enrolled in this course during the
year which shows the interest taken in this work.
Pupils in the Arriba schools are given instruction in both vocal and
instrumental music. The instruction in the grades, as well as the training in
orchestra the past year, has been under the direction of Mrs. Delphine Dael-
The vocal music of the high school has been under the direction of
Mrs. Effie C. Nelson. Pupils receive one-fourth credit each year for partici-
pation in either vocal music o-r orchestra.
HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
The high school orchestra has functioned for three years.
This year the aim has been to interpret the works of some of the best
composers, to furnish both classical an d popular music to suit the varied tastes
of the audiences before whom we app ear from time to time, and to boost the
school at all public gatherings.
JUNIOR HIGH ORCHESTRA
Students who have not had previous experience in group playing have
their opportunity in this orchestra, wh ich has as its aim the teaching of sight
reading, harmony, rhythm, and group playing.
This organization was effected this year and has about twenty mem-
bers. . '
As the student attains sufficient ability, he has the opportunity of be-
ing promoted into the more advanced work. This orchestra has already made
its appearance before the patrons and the public, and was accorded the heart-
iest of greetings.
Athletics in Arriba High School has been coming to the fro-nt in the
last few years. Because of the small number of boys in school, football has
never been attempted.
Although some work in track is done, basketball holds the major in-
terest. For the first time the last period during the day was alternated be-
tween music and athletics. The purpose is to give instructive work in physical
education, with special instruction in basketball. As soon as this program can
be carried into the grades, Arriba will be able to make a better representa-
tion in athletics.

Early in the school year the members of the English III class organ-
ized an English club which they named the "Arriba Wits." This club held
meetings once each week, on Friday morning. These meetings were carried
on according to parliamentary rules. A program consisting of speeches, decla-
mations, stunts, cartoon talks, and current events was given at each meeting.
The purpose of the club was to give students experience in public
speaking, knowledge of parliamentary rules, knowledge of current history, and
practice in conducting themselves properly as members of an organized social
Much benefit as well as pleasure was derived from these meetings
and it is hoped the Arriba Wits' Club will remain a permanent organization
of A. H. S.

ilton, and Coach Nichols.
3 BOYS' BASKETBALL
Coach Nichols started the boys' basketball a little earlier than usual
this year because he had only two experienced men in the lineup.
Regular practice started about the middle of November, and two
league games were played before the holidays. The boys won one and lost one.
After the holidays the boys all came back with the purpose of winning more
At the end of the season the boys had won five and lost seven games
which showed that the boys although small and somewhat green had made a
.good showing. The winning of the games is also due to better team work and
team spirit than has existed in previous years.

' GIRLS' BASKETBALL
At the beginning of the season a small squad of girls came out to
practice. Coach Nichols found himself facing a hard task when he tried to
choose a team from among less than twelve girls. A few of the seventh and
eighth grade girls consented to come out and aid us in practice. Bernice
Youngdahl, a three-lettered guard, was appointed captain. The Bearcats won
few games on account of stro-ng competition. We were among the six highest
teams in the Eastern Colorado League. Mr. Nichols deserves much credit for
training the girls.

Brilliant lights, riotous noise, happy crowds milling around through
the whole scene, decorated with fancy paper hats and colored streamers,
made up the picture that greeted one's startled vision on the evening of Oc-
tober 21, 1927. It was evident that the Carnival in which A. H. S. revels was
at its height.
Gayly decorated booths, offering anything one might wish for, beck-
oned for all to come to spend that hard earned' cash. Chances to win deli-
cious pies and cakes, Cif one were a good guesserl, a wild animal show, a
beauty parlor, and a delightful comic play,-all 'invited one to contribute to the
After having enjoyed a happy evening, the crowd dispersed, leaving
a scene of disaster behind them.
The total proceeds of the evening were S228.00, 3144.00 of which
were cleared. This was a welcome addition to the General Activities Fund.
The first entertainment of the year was given in the gymnasium on
Thursday evening, December 1.
The purpose of this program was to raise funds to pay for the equip-
ment in the gymnasium, and to show the progress of the pupils in athletic ex-
ercises. Several musical and literary numbers served to vary the program.
Several selections were given by the high school orchestra and chorus.
The beginners' orchestra appeared for the first time at this entertainment.
Two plays, "Animated Slang", and "The Trial for the Murder of the King's
English", were put o-n by the English classes. Several novelty stunts, coached
by Mrs. Daelhousen added spice to the program.
However, the main entertainment of the evening was the athletic per-
formance directed by Mr. Peckham. All the grades and the high school were
capably represented in these exercises. The Ladies' Aid helped materially by
furnishing the mats.
A new feature introduced this year was the Friday afternoon assem-
bly pro-grains. Each class and each organization of the school took its turn in
putting on these programs. For the most part they consisted of vocal and in-
strumental music, speeches, debates, and declamations. However opportunity
for variety was given under the heading of stunts. These pro-grams proved
very successful andwill probably remain as a permanent feature of our cur-
Yanki San, a charming Japanese operetta, was given by the school
on March 23. The students, under the direction of Mrs. Nelson, worked faith-
fully to put the operetta on in schedule time.

THE GRADE OPERETTA
On February 24, the first six grades, under the direction of Misses
Tyler and Stewart, and Mrs. Mercure, put on a charming operetta entitled,
"The Magic Gingerbread." The operetta dealt with the a
dventures of a gingerbread family that miraculously came to life. The parts w
er-e well taken and their careful train-ing was evinced by the excellent perfo
rmance of the little folks.
Thursday, April 26, was chosen as the day to hold the preliminaries
for the Literary Meet. Unfortunately, Arriba has no entries for the track
meet this year. Q
There were nine entries in the literary and vocal music contest, one
in oration, one in boys' declamation, three in vocal music, and three in girls'
Judges were chosen who were especially qualified to judge under the
respective heads, and the following decisions were given, entitling the follow-

In basket ball "Bee" is a winner,
You'd know she is not a beginner,
For four years at the game
To our team she's brought fame
And still she is not any thinner.
A modest young senior is Mary
Who could never be called contrary,
But she forgot to take heed
To the warning, "Don't Speed",
Her "commission" has made her more wary.
A likeable lad is our "Rhino"
Who for some new trousers does pine-oh!
He forgot to beware '
Of a nail, and a tear
Did make our young "Rhino" go whine-oh!
Now "Katy" for lore and for learning,
Cannot really be said to be yearning.
It is said she adores
One of our sophomores
And toward him her thoughts will be turning.
A basket ball forward is Mabel
That she can play well is no fable.
At the Burlington game
She surely won fame,
For to make scores she surely was able.
Two to-nes in his voice has young Davis,
Sometimes it sounds heavy as Travis,
But at others Nagin"
He speaks higher than Jim,
And when he sings-may the saints save us!
Jean wishes some pounds to be losing,
And practices stunts for reducing.
"Peek" helped her a while-
Now he says with a smile,
"Its too much like work for my choosing."
Viola's a versatile maiden-
Kept house, went to scho-ol, and then played on
The team as forward,
And center and guard-
There wasn't a team she was 'fraid on!
Now Ray is a popular creature,
Whom every one strives hard to feature.
In team, chorus, or class .
Due to votes from each lass
The honors are heaped without meter.
So modest, demure is this maiden
With virtues and beauty so laden
You'd think Cupid would hurl
His darts into each curl
But 'tis said that he hit the poor maiden.
RECEPTION FOR TEACHERS
The first social event on the school calendar this year was the recep-
tion tendered the teachers by the people of Arriba and community on Friday
evening, September 10, in the parlors of the Congregational church.
Rev. Hedges delivered a heart-warming speech of welcome, and was
followed by an interesting program. Games that helped everyone to get ac-
quainted were played, after which the ladies of the Aid Society served a de-
This act of cordiality and good will was greatly appreciated by all
The momentous night chosen for the freshman initiation was Tues-
day, September 20. '
After all had arrived at the gymnasium, the freshmen, together with
their sponsor, Miss Finlay, were put through a number of terrorizing stunts.
When these had been concluded, the "Freshies" were presented with green
paper crowns, inscribed with the Word, "Freshman". They were commanded
to- wear these crowns to school and school affairs for the term of one Week.
The guests were then permitted to play games. As a final stunt, each
class was grouped in the four corners of the gymnasium respectively and in-
dulged in a cheering contest.
The affair closed with refreshments served by the seniors.
A most joyous Christmas atmosphere pervaded the Arriba High School
on the Friday before school was dismissed for the holiday vacation.
On arriving at the gymnasium a beautifully decorated tree with pres-
ents of every shape and size piled around it, met our eyes.
A program, full of jollity and Christmas fun, contributed to the en-
joyment of the occasion. Each class gave a number of this program, and even
our dignified C?D faculty contributed no- small share to the merriment of the
occasion by giving a quartette in costume.
After the program was completed, games were played until delicious
refreshments were served. The toys that Santa brought evoked much fun and
The sophomore class was the first to take advantage of the leap
year in planning a party. Each lady was asked to- come in male attire, and es-
cort her partner who was to dress in feminine garb. On the night set, Janu-
ary eleventh, the streets fairly swarmed with handsome "shieks" and beauti-
ful f?J shebas. The various business corners had been assigned as places
where each was to find her partner and escort him to the school house. Some
difficulty was found in recognizing one another by reason of the clever cos-
tumes, and much merriment accompanied each disclosure of identity.
After reaching the school house, the party was invited to the upper
hall where the piano had been moved, and seats arranged. A program of
music, readings, and games made the time pass pleasantly. The evenings' en-
joyment was rounded out by delicious refreshments.
On the evening of the twenty-fifth of January, the seniors gave a
party at the school house that thoroughly convinced everyone that the seniors
know how to keep a secret as well as to give a most successful party.
When all of the guests had arrived they were asked to occupy seats
in the assembly room where a rhyming contest was soon in progress. Tommy
Taylor, a sophomore, won the prize for the best jingle, the booby prize was
won by another sophomore, Lester Kemp.
Other games followed until quite a late hour, when the company was
invited to the library to partake of a dainty lunch.
"Farewell To Thee" was then sung, after which all retired to their
homes with pleasant memories to dream over.
JUNIOR HIGH PARTY
The Junior High, with tite aid of Mrs. Dealhousen, entertained at a
delightful party, February 10. An evening was spent playing cards and other
games. Delicious refreshments were served, after which all returned to their
homes to dream pleasant dreams.
The Freshmen, with the aid of their sponsor, Miss Finlay, entertained
at a very delightful party, February 22. Many new games were played until
a rather late hour, when a refreshing luncheon was served.

Closing Events of the School Year
THE SENIOR PLAY
The senior play, "Art for Heart's Sake," was given in the auditorium
on Friday evening, April 13. A
The seniors put on a very creditable performance, especially con-
sidering the fact that they spent only two weeks in practice. The play was
full of amusing and interesting situations which were fully appreciated by the
fair-sized crowd present.
The junior-senior banquet was held on Tuesday evening, May 8, at
the Colorado Hotel. '
The dining room was tastefully decorated in the senior colors, crim-
son and pearl. l
A happy surprise came when sweet strains of music floated out from
behind a bower of ferns and blooming plants. A quartette composed of Mrs.
Daelhousen at the piano, Elizabeth Rae, violin, Dorothy Smith, saxaphone, and
Audine Thalman, banjo, dispensed classical and popular numbers during the
UGene Brown, junior class president, acted as toast-master introduc-
ing each speaker with appropriate remarks. The toasts were well received,
the remarks of each speaker being apt and entertaining.
The banquet was served by the Royal Neighbors under direction of
Mrs. Curtis, and consisted of the following menu:
Creamed Chicken in Patty Shells
Mashed Potatoes Buttered Beets
Red Apple Pickles Sweet Pickles
Perfection Salad Cheese Straws
Strawberry Short-cake with Whipped Cream
