An Essay to My Classmates
Now I have a little message
I would tell to each one here,
But Ifear you wouldforget it
Ere the closing of the year.
Now I draw yet closer to you,
Ofer you my tembling hands
As I realize this parting,
Some of us to foreign lands.
As I call eaeh name this evening
In my essay for the last,
They will eeho in thefuture
From a long forgotten past.
First I have a wishfor Forest,
That his lgfe may ever be
Crowned with jewels that are brighter
Than the pearls within the sea.
George, may the hands of angels
Guide you in the paths of peace,
May no sorrows everfndyou
Happy visions ever cease.
There is Russel, bright as sunshine,
Or thefull moon's gentle beam,
May you ride above the billows
On lQ'e's turbid angry stream.
find I've a wishfor Mr. Carry
That I can not bear to pass,
Till I see him crowned with honors
.els the dewdrops crown the grass.
Now I turn to other schoolmates,
Wring my hands, the only sign
As I stoop to press thesejingers
Once more as Q' they were mine.

The Hzgb Scfzool fuz'la'z'1zg
may be that some of us, on entering the school grounds, have felt
the desire come over us to do some desperate thing, something that
would put the old school house out of our sight forever. How we some-
times hate the sight of the building and the thought that we would
have to spend many years within its gloomy halls, studying and pondering over
some hard subject that maybe we would never have any use for.
But remember, boys and girls, that some day you will realize the good that
you got from the hard work you put forth to get your daily lessons. You will
be thankful that you can make your way in the world Without putting forth
the eFforts that the common, uneducated, day laborer has to put forth. Just
remember that there are older men and women than you are, and if they did not
See the advantage of the school building it would not be there for you. Put
forth an honest effort and in later years you will not regret it.

Sourfz Side Ward School
Most of us can remember the year that we spent at the "South Side." Hardly
a person ever graduates from old E. C. H. S. but who has spent a year or so in the
ward school. No professor to catch you in all you dog no men teachers to keep
you from having all the fun you wish. This is a year of real pleasure and enjoy-
ment and if you ever had such a year of school work in your life?
Somehow you can't seem to forget the good old times you once had in going to
the old 'KSouth Side." When you get to the High School you must settle down to
real work and all the pleasure you get there is the knowledge that you are making
the best grades in your class, which after all gives more real satisfaction in the
years that are to come.

IN MEMORY OF OUR TEACHERS
Some of us are leaving school this year and will
never see our teachers again. This may not seem such
a hard thing to do, to some, but when you go out into
life, you will remember, perhaps with sorrow, the little
things we did to annoy our teachers when we were in
school, and then we can see that after all, if you met
them half way, the teacher was our best friend.
We may have an entirely new set of teachers next
year and many of us, knowing the friends that we have
in the present teachers, will come back feeling that we
have lost some of our best friends and we could not
appreciate it until they were gone, never to return.
Next I turn to Carl, and fllving
You're schoolmates dear to me,
Would that I could have you with me, .
When I cross beyond the sea.
For you, Thelma, I would gladly
Heap great honors at your side,
And would strew your path with roses,
Fill your pass beyond the tide.
Bruce, and Cliford, may no thought of sorrow
Ever cross your peaceful mind,
But the cup of pleasure sparkling
In your pathway you mayfnd.
Estelle, when evening eloses around you
In your home, Mabel, wher'ere you be,
Don'tforget to kindly waft me
One goodnight across the sea.
Countless be the azure heavens
O'er the Florenees' busy heads,'
May thefuture ages whisper
Though they sleep they are not dead.
Now, there are two lovely Helens
Who shall never be forgotg
Will you each within your memory
Plant me one forget-me-not?
Eliazbeth's name is ever drawing
All my thoughts back to the past,
As we say adieu this evening,
But I hope 'tis not the last.
For you, Lillian and 7ocelyn, I am hoping
That the sunbeam never dies,
That is always gently falling
From your dark brown angel eyes.
If two angels camefrom heaven
W afted by a gentle breeze
I would think them but a vision
Of my schoolmates, Fay, and Beatryee.

She is just Bennieg always on time
and always ready.
He may be bashful, but he is the kind
of boy you will hear from in later years.
He is always studying and is usually
exempt in all his studies.
Unassuming composed of mind. Her
silence impresses us as an indication of
intelligence, and "more is there than
meets the ear."
Probably the most studious girl in
Senior Class. Ready to try most any-
thing, but rather hindred by her blush-
We predict for Florence a brilliant
future. She is bright and full ofthe vim
that makes a successful business girl.
Some day she will have an office of her
own to go to.
Tall, stately, gracious, a combination
'of accommodation, eiiiciency and friendly
HRed" noted for his hardheadedness.
One of First Coronet players in High
Has evoluted with marvelous progress
from a meek eyed maiden to a self-con-
fident, capable Senior. She bears ac-
quaintance and the longer you know her
the more you appreciate her.
Mildred always does her work with a
quiet dignity that wins the admiration of
everybody. Indeed she is everybody's
friend, and she will live a happy life
because of her quiet ways.
When Forest speaks everybody listens.
He is the best the school has. Although
this is his first and last year, his place
will be hard to fill in everything. He
will follow the profession of an M. D.,
and we know he will be the best in the
land some day.
A fair maiden with dark ttesses. She
has rather an adventurous glint in her
eye and a frivolous twist to her smile.
She never speaks in class unless she is
spoken to. But when the examinations
are over she has just as good grades as
most of us.
Elizabeth is another one that will be
heard from in later years. She is al-
ways busy and still she has time to be ll
friend to all.
Faye's bashfulness and quiet ways
have won her many friends. She is just
a good Senior and--well she l'lZlSlI,t
bobbed hair either.
Her :ilto voice is well known all over

A "wicked town girl" who joy rides
in a Ford. Her specialties are fri-
volous frocks and dances. She is not all
frivolous tho. For when she starts for
lab. she looks very business-like.
Clifford is a jolly good Senior. He is
somewhat inclined to be a woman-hater,
-so he says. We notice that he can
get caught more than anyone else when he
talks. Perhaps in later years he will get
over his boyish ways.
Brown curls, blue eyes and a winsome
smile. She has a famous penchant for
study and a way of saying little in class
but coming up at the end of the term
with good grades to her credit.
Wouldn't have bobbed hair, too com-
mon for her.
She hates Math and Science, but is
good in her other subjects. We don't
know what she is going to be, but it is a
sure thing she will make good.

You have lingered long andfaithful
While I told the rest good-hye,'
May I he thefrst to greet you, Linnie,
In that home beyond the sky.
I've a thousand little wishes
For the teachers unexpressed,
And may Heaven ever guide you
To the regions ofthe hlest.
And now one wishfor you, Prof.,
May your eyes grow strong with years,'
May they he untouched with sorrow,
May they he undimmed hy tears,'
May your lufe he hathed in sunshine,

May the voice we've heard so often,

That can deal such deadly pain
As the cruel words that echo,
"We shall never meet again."

A Freshmarfs Sweet
Bye and Bye
Last night as I liy on my pillow,
And gazed at the stars in the sky,
I wondered ever afreshman
Would drft to the sweet bye and bye.
Oh, the trail to that bright, Senior land
Is narrow and dim, so they say,
While the trail that leads to perdition
Is posted and blazed all the way.
I wonder whosefault that so many
Will be lost at that greatfinal sale,
When they might have been good and had plenty
Had they known U that dim, narrow trail.
They say there will be one grand round-up
Where thefreshmen like cattle will parade,
To be culled by teachers of knowledge,
Who are posted and know every grade.
Perhaps there will be some stray freshmen,
Who in their classes ranked high,
To be mavericked by the Teachers of Knowledge,
And shipped to the sweet bye and bye.

We see by this picture that the next year's Fresh-
man class will be a rather large one, though not as
large as some of the former ones. For some reason or
other there has always been a rather small number in
this class. But they are bright and will in all probabil-
ity show us what a small group of Freshmen can do in
the High School.

Now I leave you weak and weary,
But withfuture hopes sustained,
Toiling through the partway dreary
Till the mountain top is gained.
Should Ifail,forgive my hoping,
In this world of tears and pain,
When I know I'm doomed to failure,
I shall never smile again.
All these songs we've sung at evening,
Still will eeho in my ears,
And eaeh face will seem more lovely
When viewed through a veil of tears.
Never more will all these elassmates
Meet to read here one hy one,'
May we he a class in Heaven
When our earthly task is done.
Now I have but one more passage
I would utter ere we part,
That each day you let the angels
Come and purify your heart.
Then a thousand leagues may part us
Some may eross theforeign plaing
Yet within the distantfuture
We may hope to meet again.

This organization, under the guidance of capable
scoutmasters, has grown from a mere handful of boys,
to one of the best organizations in El Campo, They are
developing some wonderful athletes and are doing
much to promote the moral welfare of the town and
community at large. Recently they brought the Rad-
cliff Chatauqua to town, one ofthe best things that
they could have done. They live up to the scout motto,
" Be Prepared."
Taekling high, and tackling low,
Twelve years old and ready to go,
Alnd his mother looked with a wisyul eye
At the notfar distant hy and hy,'
The dawn of the dangerous morning when,
He'll go to thefield with older men.
And the mother says, in a motherls way,
"When he's older grown he will want to play.
And the game is rough and the players fall
And they never think of mother at all,'
They never think 4 our dreadjust then,
And thefears that come when our boys are men."
What can I say, and what can I do
Time was when Iyearnedfor the scrimmage too,
Time was I longed with an ardent soul,
To battle my way to afarjiung goal,
And I know that I'd have joyed at a hurt hack then
just to take my place with the older men.
Oh, the game is rough and so are the years,
And we all get hart, and we all shed tears,
We are all thrown hard hy the hand of fate,
And we all do things where the danger's great
And a hay must learn, and 'tis well he can-
In the game of lye, to play the man.

"Swede" is a good man, his specialty being off-
tackle plays for an average gain of 6 yards. He is very
good on defense and makes a practice of covering
fumbles. 'fSwedel' has pugilistic inclinations and

line when a Goose Creek man twisted his neck.

would be 'flittle but loud." This boy is good. He is
fast and a demon tackler. He has a habit of cleaning
up interference and most of the time gets the runner

"Papa" was a new man at quarter this year, but
his ability to run his team, at this position, was plainly
shown in every game. He was a triple threat man, and
his punts averaged forty-five yards. He could pass
sure and fast. When he started to buck the line he
usually went several yards before he was stopped. He
was the best safety man we had and always brought
the ball back when he received a punt. His position
will be hard to fill next year.

Review 0 f Football
When Coach Hudson sounded the call for the football candidates to
fall in, the majority of the answers came from rookies. The old men that
answered the call were Zuber, Schoenfield, Webb, Wilson and Day. But the
new men went to work with a will that soon made them into real fighters.
The first big event came when we met Bay City in a hard battle. Neither
team profited from the mix-up as far as scoring goes, but our new men
found their places and when we again met the same team, we gave them a
sound trouncing. This gave our team new hopes and they began the climb.
Palacios and Edna went down in our march upward and we came to
the place where we must meet teams larger and better picked. Goose
Creek came over to puncture our swelling pride, but they were on the re-
ceiving end ofthe defeat. They had a good team, but we outfought them,
and placed our team among the four contestants for district championship
Beaumont, Ball High of Galveston, and Heights High of Houston. lt fell
our lot to play Beaumont. The team came over and with greater weight,
greater knowledge, and more experience, eliminated us from the race. But
only after a hard fight against great odds did our team go down.
The story of the terrific fight our team made when they were so out-
classed, the unconquerable spirit of the men will be a current story in the
annals of our school. The team leaves to the future team a standard of
courage, and clean sportsmanship that will serve them in their football
battles for El Campo High School.
The regulars that we lose this year are Wright, Zuber, Webb, Schoen-
field, Yoas and Day. Their places will be hard to fill but we hope El Campo
High has a better team next year than she has had in several years.

BOYS, BASKET BALL I
There is not much to say for the boys' basket ball team, for they were eliminated
from the county after playing three games. We did not have very good material to
pick from and had to make the most of what we had. The seven who made regular
places on the team were, Fromen, Wright, Glaze, Schoenfield, Webb, Yoas and
Holt. We had a team that would work together well but we had no goal shooters.
In every game we outplayed our opponents but not one could loop a goal when he
had a chance. In our second game with Louise We played them down, but could not
win because of poor goal shooting. In the second half of the game we came out and
made more points than they did, but the first lead gave them the game. In the
game with Danevang we knew we must come from under some time so we put
forth every effort we had and in the end we had outplayed and also outscored
them, making us the winner of our third game. Next came Hahn and although
they had men on the team that did not attend school and had played basket ball
for years, we came out on the big end of the score.
We are getting some men next year that have had some experience in.basket
ball and with the material that We have already we should have a winning team
in every respect.
GI RI ,Sl BASKET BALI,
The girls did not organize a basket ball team until the season was nearly over.
They had the material in Hill, Comstock, V. Iihman, B. Hhman, l7uPree, john-
stone, Payne, Kainer, lfromen, Heard, Cochran, O'Bier and Anthis, the coach is
Miss Fromen, but they did not have time for practice before their lirst game and
consequently they lost. They were almost heartbroken, but they soon cheered up
and went ahead more determined than ever. They had some practice and went
into their second game and, alas, they were again defeated.
They still practiced and worked in hopes of getting another game and evening
up the score but they were to be disappointed, because they could not get a game
with anyone because it was so late, and they had to play among themselves and be
content, because they could not even up the score with their opponents.
We have much good material for next year and with what new material that
comes in and an early start in working out we should have a good winning team
next year. Then the girls can even up the score with their opponents and go their
Refviefw 0 Track
When the call came for track men this year there were only a few
answered, as there was only one old track man left this year, Zuber. Finally
they were able to get enough men out to make a good team. Those answering
the call were, Zuber, Wright, Fromen, Schoenfield, V. Zuber, Shaver,
Webb, Thomas, Benson, Glaze, Cummings and Yoas. From this small
squad Mr. Cooper had to pick eight men to take to the district meet. As El
Campo is the only Class A school in the county, we did not have to compete
with the other schools, but to make the county meet more interesting, we
held the meet here and competed with the other smaller schools. It was
easily a walk-over, El Campo winning fourteen out of a possible twenty
first places. We could use as many men in the county meet as we wished,
but from these there were to be picked eight to go to the district..
Of these men, Zuber, Schoenlield, Thomas, and Benson ran the relay,
and easily won it. Zuber, Benson and Webb, ran the quarter, Benson, Webb,
and Fromen ran the half, Cornett ran the mile, Shaver pole vaulted, Wright,
Thomas, Cummings were in the High jump, Zuber, Shaver, Yoas, in broad
jump, Cummings and Schoenfield ran the hurdlesg R. Zuber, V. Zuber and
Shaver ran the 220, Shaver, Schoenfield and V. Zuber ran the century, V.
Zuber and Shaver ran the fifty, Wright, Glaze, and Cummings handled the
Mr. Corry had charge of the Junior track men and put out a very good
team. Those answering the junior call were Hill, H. Garner, E. Garner,
Wehrman, Turner. They took several first places in the county meet, and
showed that we will have a fine Senior track team in the future.
Those Senior men that are leaving us this year are, R. Zuber, Wright,
Schoenfield, VVebb, Benson and Yoas. But we have some promising mate-
rial in the men that are staying for next year. Some of them are new and in-
experienced but they will find their places next year and we will again have
a winning track team. There will be several new men come to El Campo
from other schools to help us keep the loving cup that we, this year, won
from their school.
A LEAP YEAR PARTY
The Junior boys of E.C.H.S. royally entertained the junior girls with a leap
year party Friday, February 29, at the home of Mrs. Boone.
After all the guests had arrived the boys rendered an entertaining musical
program, then various interesting games were played, including proposals written
by the young ladies to the young men, who in turn had the liberty, as it was leap
year, of accepting or refusing the proposal.
Delightful refreshments of cake, ice cream, and candy were served.
On Thursday, February 28, the Seniors gave the Freshmen a party at the City
The Freshmen all came dressed as old men and women, while the Seniors, and
the teachers that came, were dressed as small boys and girls. When everybody
had arrived we began playing old-fashioned country games. Before we could get
tired of one game, by a well planned program, we would begin something new,
and anyone who did not have a good time had better go to a good doctor.
At a late hour the girls were asked to find their partners and we were served on
sandwiches, soda water and candy.
FOOTBALL ENTERTAI NM EN TS
When our boys began the upward climb in' football, the good people of El
Campo began to want to show their appreciation of a winning team. After we had
defeated Edna, we were royally entertained, the Edna boys included, at the home
of Mrs. B. S. Wright. Many games were played, including get acquainted games.
This made our boys realize that the town was backing them up and they put forth
a greater effort to show what they were made of.
The next surprise came when we had defeated Goose Creek. The girls gave us
a dance and party at the Mack Webb Hall. The Goose Creek players were present
and we tried to show them the code of a good sportsman. They left El Campo with
a feeling that even though they were defeated, they had left friends behind.
Beaumont came over to play us for the district finals and we were defeated.
But still the town people were behind us,and we were again entertained at the City
This time we were feeling blue over our first defeat, but we made the most of it
and most of us went home feeling that folks understood and did not hold the
blame on us for losing the game.

THE KELLEM DUO
VVe were delightfully entertained the first night by the Kellem Duo. Mr. Kel-
lem was a reader and imitator as well as a singer. Tlt young lady was a line musi-
cian and singer. She introduced us to the piano-accordion which was something
new to us.
The second number was given by Dr. Frank Church, who spoke on New Ameri-
ca. He told us of the morals that must be used to preserve this nation. He was an
ex-service man and knew the conditions existing today. We left much wiser than
The third was even better than the first two. This was a three act play show-
ing the result of a life that has been spent in luxury and idleness. The mind func-
tions improperly and this kind of people usually call on some one else to do every
thing for them. This should be enough to open our eyes. i
lV1iss Bewley was an imitator and reader. She had the kind of voice that en-
abled her to play several different parts in one play, and make them seem real.
Mr. and Mrs. Scott were just another example of the Scotch and Irish com-
bination. He was a full hlooded Scotchman and could not help it. She was Irish
and did not want to help it. They gave an excellent show, besides some fine music
on the Scotch Bagpipes.
THERESA SHEENAN COMPANY
The Theresa Sheenan Company consisted of three young ladies all of different
nationalities. One was American, one French and Miss Sheenan herself was Irish.
This was a fine musical program and we heard some wonderful music. Miss Shee-
nan herself was a good imitator of birds and could make a frog ashamed of himself
when it came to croaking.
The Junior class gave an excellent account of themselves when they staged
one of Booth Tarkington's best plays,"Penrod." The first night it rained and still
we got a good house. They called for the play again and it was put on a second
time and we had an almost full house. The Juniors were interested in the play and
went at it determined to put over a good comedy and they succeeded nobly.
March 27, 1923
The football boys under the direction of Miss Orrick and Mrs. Wright and
with the assistance of the High School girls, presented a musical production "The
Pennant," to one of the largest audiences ever assembled in the High School
Auditorium. The play was well received and announced a success.
The theme is a story ofa millionaire's daughter, Doris Bond, and a football
player, Jack Lawson. Doris's foster mother tries to marry her off to a bankrupt
English lord, the lord being financed by a Jew, Levi Lender. Levi expects his
money with interest the day of the marriage. Verdant Green a freshman discovers
the plot and tells Jack and Doris. They elope and the lord and Jew lose.
The parts were played well and the singing was a surprise to everyone. The
play was later carried to Edna and was a success there also.
The next play to be on will be our last. The material will be picked from the
entire High School. It is also one of Booth Tarkington's plays and is considered
his best production. The theme is that ofa soldier boy, who has been a college
professor, has now returned from service and not wanting to beat the man, who
now has his old place, out of a job. Clarence, who can do anything he tries finds a
job with a Mr. VVheeler, who has many family troubles. At last Clarence helps to
straighten them out and all are happy. '
THE FAVORITE CONTEST
When the time came to elect candidates for the favorites for our annual, there
was manifest a spirit of competition among the High School grades. Each grade
elected their own candidates and they were to try to put these over. The Fresh-
men combined with the Seniors the first day and were to help put over their can-
didates. The Juniors heard of this and at once asked the Sophomores to help
them elect their favorites.
The Freshmen and Seniors had candy sales, and sold hamburgers on the
streets, anything to raise money to buy votes. They raised more money to use
than we had expected and thought that surely they would win without a doubt.
But the Juniors and Sophomores did the same thing, but were not as good sales-
men as the others and did not raise as much money. But when the last day came
they had put over their candidates. We had not remembered the play they had
put on and had received half of the proceeds. They had also sacriiced some of
the little luxuries that they had been accustomed to and brought their pennies
and nickles to school to buy votes for their favorites and they won, by electing
three of their own candidates. The other side elected one of theirs.
We know that the Seniors and Freshmen worked hard and earnestly, but the
Juniors and Sophomores worked harder and went over the top. We must hand it
to them for being workers and stickers.
THE LITERARY WORK
When school opened this year we were notified that we were to have a High
School Literary Society. Each grade elected a president, secretary, and what
other officers they needed, and started to work. This society met every Thurs-
day afternoon and demonstrated to the school and public what they could do.
Each class took its turn about conducting the meetings and we had some great
times. We had debates, short plays and readings. Some of the plays were original
and were full of comedy and laughs. They might be written about another class
that was supposed to conduct the exercises the next time. Especially the Juniors
and Seniors would hit at each other in every way possible.
Another new organization is the Glee Club. It is made up of the best material
from the High School and has furnished some wonderful music under the direc-
tion of Miss Orrick.

Yea, it was the time for examinations, for headscratching and think-

day and fear ye not your exams." So it came to pass that on the third
day, of the third week, of the third month, of that term, we walked
forward unto our Geometry tomb. And for the second time Mr.
Cooper spake unto our class, saying, "hear me, all ye good people,
write what is within your knowledge and borrow nothing from your
neighbor for your neighbor is deceitful."
And the following day it came to pass, that we diligently marched
to our English class. Yea, we had met our second Waterloo. Likewise
Miss Fromen spake unto the class, saying, "hear ye me, pupils, ask no
questions, for I am stricken with forgetfulness on exam days."
And on the first day of the next week we studied for a Spanish
exam, and bear ye in mind our thoughts were in confusion, for we
knew not what we were doing. And it came to pass that Miss Goen
put ten questions on the board and spake to the class saying, "pupils,
give ye ear unto my words, answer eight and ask ye no questions."
Likewise our Chemistry came due. Yea, the subject of our fears.
Then Mr. Ratclifl' spake saying, "fear ye not this exam for it is easy!
Remember ye not the work we have gone over?'l
And on the third day, of the fourth week of that term, we moved
slowly to the History room, for we knew not whether to fear or to
rejoice. And it happened that on this day we rejoiced, for, bear ye in
mind, Mr. Corry spake nothing unto us, but made our last exam. easy.
