THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR Q 'mil Musa nm: pered, " I've seen that girl somewhere before but I can't place her. " "Why, Lois, don't you remember that Sut- ton girl, the one that was kidnapped two weeks ago ? We saw her picture in the paper so that must be where you saw her." "Of course, now I remember. There's a big reward for the return of her and the capture of the kidnappers." "Those men over in the corner must be the ones that kidnapped her." h "I wish we could do something to help er." "And capture those men," added Jean. "I know what we can do. I'll stay here while you,go for help. You aren't afraid to go, are you ' "I'd rather go than stay here. I'll go right now." Jean crept down the stairs and out of the house. Meanwhile Lois kept watch over the attic. The two men were still playing cards and every once in awhile the girl tried to shift her position. All of a sudden Lois lost her footing and fell. The noise startled the men and they ran toward her to see what the matter was. One of the men spied her and pulled her into view. "What cha doin' here, sister?" asked one. "N-nothing," stammered Lois. .SI suppose spyin' on us is called nothin', eh. " " No, sir, I guess not." " What do you mean, you guess not? Don't you know?,' " No, sir, I mean yes, sir, was the frightened reply." " Well, what are we goin, to do with her," said the one gangster. "Tie her up with the other one, I guess," was the answer. "No, I don't think that will do. She knows too much. We ought to put her someplace where no one will hear what she has to say." "You mean bump her off ? " "You catch on fast." "Nix on that, Butch. We've got enough to handle with this Sutton dame." "I suppose you are right after all. We might as well tie her up now and think of something later. We'll put a gag on her so she won't scream like the other one did." The one called Butch produced some rope and bound Lois hand and foot and put a gag in her mouth so she could hardly breathe. Then they put her over in the corner with the other girl. It was then that Lois got a good look at the girl. It seemed that the girl hadn't eaten for a long time. Her eyes were sunken and her face was thin. Lois wondered how anyone could be so cruel as to let this defense- less girl starve to death. Then the thought flashed on her, what if Jean didn't get back in time maybe the men would kill her as they had planned to do in the first place. What if oh-there was no use in torturing herself with all these thoughts. It was bad enough as it was. All of a sudden a siren broke the silence. It seemed to come closer every minute. The startled two gangsters jumped from their chairs. Where could they turn now? The only solution was to get the girls out of the way so if the police arrested them they would have no proof. The one called Butch grabbed Lois, and the other one, the Sutton girl. They dumped both of them in an open trunk that was standing near by and threw some old clothes over them. "Don't you dare move," muttered Butch, lfor you'll get something you aren't looking or." With that he turned away but before he had a chance to hide, the police had bounded up the stairs and had him covered with a gun. "Where's the girls?" asked the captain. "What girls ? " was the reply. "Quit stalling and tell us where they are." "Try and ind them if you can." "Here we are," said a mutlied voice from the trunk. "Oh, so that's where you hid them, eh? Well, you'll get life for this little job, orI lose my bet." The police soon had the girls out and Jean who had arrived with them ran over to Lois and said, "Are you all right, Lois? I was so worried about you." "I'm all right, but I am afraid this girl isn't," answered Lois, as she turned to the Sutton girl. "She should be in bed right now and have some good nourishing food." " We'll take care of her right away,', said the captain, " but right now I wish to thank you and your friend for clearing up this my- stery. You know there's a fat reward waiting for you at headquarters so if you don't mind we'll drop you off there so you can get it." "Mind! The pleasure is all ours," said Lois. "You said it," cried Jean. A few hours later Jean and Lois were relat- ing their ad ventures to their fellow club mem- bers. They were all gathered around a big fireplace at J ean's house. -4-bif28l0"

THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR 'QQFN Fill wiv Iggy Mysterious Manor 01s LOOKED out of the old mansion window watching the rain come down. Beside her stood Jean who seemed to be a trifie ner- vous. Lois suddenly turned to Jean and said, "You would have thought that our club could have planned a better initiation than this. We haven't seen one ghost yet." "I don't want to see one either. You know, Lois, that this house is supposed to be haun- ted and we have to stay here all night as part of our initiation." "Of course I know, silly," replied Lois, "but so far nothing exciting has happened and I, for one, hope that something will happen so we could tell the gang." "Well," said Jean, "I'd rather get out of here alive than have something to tell the gang. Iwish we had never consented to come to this old mansion." "I don't know what you're worrying about, Jean. Nothing is going to happen. The rumor that is going around about seeing a light flash on in the attic is just a lot of talk. Just relieve your mind about that." "I know, Lois, but I've just got a feeling that something awful is going to happen. Every minute I expect a ghostly hand to come out and spirit me away." "Stop that, Jean, you'll give me the jitters if you don't. I do wish you would calm yourself and face the facts. You're just exciting yourself ova? nothing. I tell you, Jean, nothing is going to a. .... .. " Just then a blood-curdling scream rang through the old mansion breaking the dead- like silence. It echoed and reechoed through the house and finally ended in a low moan. Jean and Lois stood stunned for one long moment just staring at each other. They seem- ed to be glued to the floor. " W-what w-was t-that ? " Lois finally whispered. " I d-don't k-know. " Jean whispered back. " It seemed to c-come from t-the a-attic. Do you s-suppose that those stories were actual- ly true that we heard about the house being haunted ? " " Let's hope not, " replied Jean. "We're not doing anything here so we had better find out what that cry was. If anybody is in trouble I mean to get them out of it if it is possible." " Oh Lois, you wouldn't go up in that attic alone, would you ? " " I wouldn't have to go alone if you went with me, you know." "You couldn't make me go in that attic for a million dollars," said Jean. 'Tm not trying to make you go up there if you don't want to but I don't think you'll like to stay down here with ghosts for com- pany." "Stop it, Lois, you know I can't stand as much as you can. I suppose I'1l have to go with you if I don't want to stay here." i All right. As long as that's settled we'll investigate now. You can follow me. Come on, J ean." " I-I'm right b-behind you," was the reply. "I think we had better go up the front stairs. It seemed that the cry came from the a 1c. ' The two girls started up the old stairs to- gether. "My, these steps are creaky. It just gives me the creeps to listen to them." "Never mind, Jean, we'll soon be up now." The girls reached the top of the stairs and looked around. They seemed to be in a long, dark hall and at the end ofthe hall was a door. Reaching it Lois stepped forward and opened it very slowly. She peered in and saw another staircase that led to the third floor and the attic. "One more flight and we will know what that cry really was," said Lois. "I don't want to go up theref' whimpered Jean. "I'm scared stiff, and I don't care who knows it." "Buck up, Jean, in a few minutes we'll know what's going on around here." "O.K., but you go first." "Well, let's get started. Remember, Jean, don't make any noise, for if there is some one up there we don't want them to know any- one is about." Once again the girls started up the flight of stairs on tip toe. Step after step and finally the girls reach- ed the top. Peering over the railing the girls saw something that made their blood run cold. Over in one corner of the attic was a girl tied hand and foot. In the other corner, sitting at a table, were two men playing cards. The girl seemed to be around sixteen years old and had light brown hair. Suddenly Lois turned to Jean and whis- +i27I0-

THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR GE' uifa .GV All of a sudden Jean piped up and said, " Of course, I admit that Lois was brave and all that, but let me tell you, girls, if it hadn't been for me, Lois might not have been here right now, and," she added, "I suppose you girls thought that it was real spooky in that old house, and I'1l admit it was. But you know what ? I didn't get scared once !

He told Paul Bunyon stories: Example: "When Paul Bunyon shot his gun, one barrel was so big that it broke off and stuck in the ground so they used it for a smoke stack. But the smoke stack was so very, very big and tall that when a 'dre was started on Monday it took till Fri- day before the smoke came out of the topf' Meetings have consisted of programs such as basketball, trips, speakers, and business. The present club has made more amend- meats to the constitution than any previous c u . The club made thirty dollars selling candy so they could have a dance May 4th, This year, for the first time, the members have had to take pledges. This idea will probably be carried out in the future if proven successful. Congratulations to next year's members. George Stierle HI-Y CLUB -srl 29 144'-
