fWith due respect to Shakespzarfj
All our school's a barnyard, all the boys
And girls, in all our classes, feathered fowls:
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one lad in his time plays many parts,
His acts being four, ages. First the freshman,
A bantam, strutting, flutt'ring, feathers ruffling
At interference from superior fowl.
Then the magpie soph'more, restless, chattering,
Unmindful of advice of prudent mates
'Gainst misdemeanors, pranks, and wasted hours.
Next the junior, a honking gander, hissing
Maledictions on light-minded fowl,
Goes searching for a quiet peaceful spot
To gain the bubble reputation.
Next comes the grave and revered senior owl,
Wise, serious, and diligent always,
Who leaves our barnyard on a fair May day
A beautiful white swan on outspread wings,
As did our high seniors in early spring,
To sail out on the stream of life, with hope,
With beauty, grace, and joy-with everything
That pointed out ambition's fulfilment.
And each of these at times played other parts:
The athlete, soldier, beauty, actor, too-
Young game-cocks, turkeys, peacocks, parrots gay
Display their charm, their skill, alertness, pride,
As in the barnyard on the mesa high
They swell, strut, and compete in fine array
Until, in turn, each steps aside to find
His own place in the great barnyard of life.

In the great Barnyard is the well of English, deep, shining and clear.
Sturdily built and staunch, it has been the work of centuries. Away back in the
hills of time two streams grew from Life itself. One was the graceful, golden
brook of Latin, the other Was the deep, strong stream of Saxon. The trend of
Life brought these streams together, so that their waters mingled and became
one, the source of good English.
By the side of the well, were great troughs brimming with the life-water.
Tlhe birds of the air and the beasts of the field gathered around with joyous
clamor to drink the cool, translucent water.
Welling and dancing with the pulse of Life, a clear river flowed from the
Barnyard through the fat, green pastures of English Literature and spread itself
into a blue lake placid with the serenity of great depth.
Straight-cut channels threaded their way from the Barnyard into the Great
World to supply good speech to the great factories and huge market-places of the

In the West there lies a kingdom
Which is ruled by Chanticleer.
It is praised throughout the country
And in lands both far and ne-ar.
The outlines of this kingdom
Are outgrowths of Mathematics,
And they ever hold their shape
Despite the ravings of fanatics.
Though changes come with every year
And chickens grow to cocks,
The triangles of the kingdom
Are -as permanent as the rocks.
Therefore I turn prophetic
And foresee in coming years
The rule of Mathematics
Until the Kingdom disappears.

This estate wherein live proud Chanticleer and his little world is a very
interesting place, safely walled about so that no foe may enter. How then may
one gain admission? By the gate, to be sure. It's a rather narrow gate and a
straight and uphill path leads to it. Many grow weary in the ascent and turn
olif into pleasant, easy by-paths, but he who perseveres and reache-s the top can
readily unlatch the gate and, once open, it swings wide upon the whole enclosure.
The name of this friendly gate is Latin and he who knows Latin has an open
sesame to all the charming things within.
He may enjoy the lovely Landscape laid out with Mathematical precision,
refresh himself at will from the charming old English VVell, or lie down to rest
on its Historic Soil and watch the Peacocks strutting around, proud of their
Beauty. He may listen to the Blue-Jay chattering about the why of everything
with Scientific curiosity or see a long-legged Turkey, interested only in mundane
things, Win a Marathon for some choice bit of bacon, proudly ruffling his
feathers of Orange and Black while the Owls, the Geese, the hdagpies and the
Bantams burst forth in a strange chorus sounding something like "Teaml Team!
Team!" Or he may lazily watch the Spider with an eye to Business weaving his
marvelous web or the Woodpecker busily tapping away at a nearby tree. For
diversion he may watch some Game-roosters using their spurs with Military spirit.
Then, perhaps tired, he may enjoy the sweet Music of the Nightingale or philoso-
phize a bit with Chanticleer himself in true Ciceronian style.
Let Chanticleer think that Dawn comes with his morning call, this student of
the Classics knows that Latin sheds a light which illumines Life itself.

The blue jay is probably the most noted as well as the most beneficial mem-
ber of the crow family. He is symbolic of science in many ways because of his
inquisitive nature, mental alertness and response to changing conditions and
situations, and many varied and fantastic interests and activities, each of which
is characterized by an active- disposition and ceaseless inquiry into the order and
nature of things.
This most worthy member of bird society is not a regular inhabitant of the
barnyard though his presence therein is more or less a common occurrence due
to his wide interest in new developments, progress, happiness and the general wel-
fare of animal kind. He prefers for his work-shop boundaries of larger dimen-
sions or proportions, where initiative, self-reliance and opportunity for service
offer most for attaining social and economic recognition in the bird world.
Xlany delightful hours -are spent by this tireless worker in his outdoor labo-
ratory in search of the new, the unseen and the untried in an effort to satisfy his
great love for the miraculous and the dramatic which touches his curiosity for
the things of everyday life. VVith open eyes, keen observation, suitable instru-
ments, and a desire to experiment, perhaps in lonely vigil, this able representa-
tive of bird-kind secures satisfactory answers to many persistent questions concern-
ing his life's work, desires, limitations and special abilities.
The knowledge and general information of this well known bird is wide and
of a distinctly practical usable nature. According to recent bird-lore, the ideas
of the jay are the corner stones of medicine, pharmacy, engineering, sanitation
and agriculture. It is the conviction of his kind that just as truly as dawn follows
darkness, just so surely will those see light who study the fascinating subject of

As the Sun yielded to Chanticleer's clarion call, its rays fell on the
fine filament of a spider's Web. The Barnyard folks gathered and marveled
at its delicacy of fiber and beauty of pattern While the listened to Chanti-
cleer explain that the spider spins his Web to use as a means of providing
his sustenance and protection. So does the Department of Commerce spin
its WEB OF COMMERCE in order that it may offer to the thoughtful
one the same opportunity by means of its subjects-Advertising, Bookkeep-
ing, Business English, Business Arithmetic, Commercial Geography, Com-
mercial Law, Comptometry, Nlultigraphy, Penrnanship, Spelling, Shorthand,

Great broad-hreasted trees stand deeprooted in the Barnyard. From
arming their green coverts rises the busy hum of workers. Out and in, to
and fro, dart the wood-peckers. These fmrls are true benefactors of the
Barnyard for tap, tap go their deft strokes on the hard wood. The chief
Tapper directs each movement and from the oaks, the cedars, the pines
and the walnuts, the busy wood-peclcers make nests for this family or for
that and fashion conveniences for all the Barnyard World.

It is spring and out of the clear morning air comes the call of the Cardinal
or Red Bird, "What's here! What's hereli' High on the leafiest bough over--
hanging the barnyard he perches himself by the side of his mate to watch the
fowls starting upon their daily tasks, each one forgetful of his gorgeous plumage.
"Ah,', sighed the Red Bird, HI am artist of the Feathered Kingdom. I am
King of Color. Drab and uninteresting, indeed, would be these barnyard fowls
but for the paint from my palette and the designs from my artistic brain.
"Behold the Chanticleerl Have I not taken splashes of crimson from my
own coat for his breast and proud comb? The swans and geese I have left snowy
white, save their beaks of yellow sunlight, that they may help my colors seem
the brighter. Owls and Bantams, soft browns from the autumn leaves, and the
Turkey, rich bronze from gold of the sun-all these, I have painted with my
skillful brush, each having always a patch of red from my own brilliant feathers.
"O, Peacock, proud beauty of us all-what would your coat be, had I not
mixed on my palette the greens from every hue of leaves, the blue of a Starry sky,
the bits of gold from the yellowest corn-all woven into a wonderful pattern?
'fThough none of you give me thanks for showing your beauty to the World,
my soul thrills with joy that I can do this thing. Mine is the joy of the artist.
What's here! What's herel What's here ll'

liail to thee, Poll Parrot! whose brilliant coloring and gay plumage may
well be emblematic of the energy and life, the gayety and fun of our dra-
matic department, for what affords a brighter. more vivid spot in the dull
routine of school activities than when the foot lights are turned up, the
curtain slowly rises and our young impresarios, decked out in all their finery, I
present some glamorous bit of life before our eager gaze. Thou art surely iii
the most envied 'of birds, for thou possessest the greatest gift of all-the ll
gift of human speech, the mastery of which is so diligently sought after by ll
our Dramatic Art Department. An emblem and yet a warning, for well N
we realize that there must be far more than gay feathers and parroted
phrases and that the greatest thing of all, thou lackest: the brain, the heart, 1
the soul most vital to our art.

The barnyard band's in glory
At the coming of each morn,
For that's the time they toot the flute
And blow the big br-ass horn.
Whip-poor-will plays the clarinet.
Frog makes the big bass groan.
The Clove plays on the viola,
And the loon the saxaphone.
Locust and crickets play violins,
The horned owl plays the cellog
The guinea on the old French horn
Plays songs so sweet and mellow.
We love to hear the barnyard troupe
As they blow their horns and pipes.
We'd like to have them play always
But God turns out the lights.

When the Hugly ducklingv enters the great doors of our barn, the gym-
nasium, as the 'cbantamv or Freshman, she looks forward to emerging with all of
the grace and fine feathers of a lovely swan.
The duckling Freshie shyly enters into gymnasium exercises, folksongs, and
games with only a "peep" once in a while. By the time she has become a 'fmagpiev
or Sophomore, she has gained poise and enters into all the exercises with real
relish. She now participates in the interclass games of all sorts trying to make
the quacking geese victorious. By the time our 'cugly ducklingv has become a
'CGoose" or Junior she swells with pride at being a part of our large barn. She
by now, has joined the dancing team and her angles and joints soften into the
curves and graceful lines of the swan. This is what the Hgymv does for high
school girls. It is a barn in which the bantam enters with the rowdyness and
roughness of the "ugly ducklingv and comes out after years of combined work
and play as the beautiful swan with the wisdom of the owl. She has gained the
democratic spirit, the good sportsmanship, and the general healthy outlook on
life furnished by the f'gym." In the squabbles and cluckings in the "barn", girls
are transformed into women.

thousand dangers. They are so protected by the kindly farmer's wife
Cthe Dean of Girlsj, who cares for them from the time they first break the
shell of an egg and creep, tiny and helpless, into the world, until the time
when they crouch in a sunny corner of the barnyard and lazily survey the
other feathered creatures. VVhen one is sick, the farmer's wife -appears
With a bottle of black medicine, an immense spoon and pokes it between
their unwilling bills and they become well. She looks after the barnyard, and
Without her, the fowls would all die and wither away.

Four long years of toil and work
It took to make this class,
And when we started we were but
A heterogeneous mass.
Not tried or tested was our worth
Though brains or brawn were there,
But we came and saw and conquered
To make this class most fair.
ln ,23 or ,24
We started up the climb.
The search for knowledge was our quest
To reach the heights sublime.
The Trojan club came up "en masse7'.
Bill, John, Joe, Hugh and -Cow
And Louis Mollinary, too,
"En masse" they're leaving now.
Manuel and Alice are our pride
And Raul Escobar,
For of the whole high senior class
The highest three they are.
Burke and Steve and John Armstrong
And Frank are learned, too. Q
And all the rest have honors
Which are, of course, their due.
Elbert Metcalf and Joe Lea
And Virgie Neugebauer,
Raul and Creamy Edmondson
Our brawny athletes are.
In acting, seniors know their stuff,
In operas they excel,
As just one look at Evelyn
And Charles and Min, will tell.
In writing, fame and poetry
Welve Glo and Mary Pratt.
They'll sell their stuff when they get old
So they won't have to tat.
Extremes are just along our line-
We range them as they go,
From tall Burke Elfers, one extreme
To another, Little Glo.
5 S fl ---L?
Anne Keffer is our youngest girl,
And has but fifteen years.
Our oldest? Ifm afraid that that
VVould move us all to tears.
Now Bill and John, each otherfs twin
Each looks so like his brother,
That none of us can tell which one
Is which, and which the other.
The class that here has come
For each to do his best,
To climb the ladder of success
And pass the daily test.
To see if in our high school days
Each knew how to pass-
And then were sent out in the world
A homogeneous mass.
The Swann Song
One beautiful morning,
In life's early spring,
There launched on the river
A fluffy white thing.
Spring lengthened to summer
And, time, with its flight,
Brought to the wee duckling
Both Wisdom -and light.
VVith knowledge came wisdom,
With wisdom came grace.
All throughthe bright summer
Its powers grew apace.
All trace of the duckling
Forever was gone,
Instead, on the river,
Reigned the lovely white swan.
Life's summer is ended,
Its glories are gone,
Oh, list the same music-
The song of the swan
As death draweth near her
And beckons today,
One last soulful effort,
Then passes away.

Ilrt-ak" presented by the january, IQZS, Senior Class in the High School .Midi-
torium. 'l'his farce comedy. with its setting in a New lfngland summer hotel,
offered excellent opportunity for the members of the cast to reveal much histrionic
ability while it furnished the audience a great range of interest-from the broad
comedy ol the eccentric hotel guests to the romantic heart interest of the main
character involxed in the plot. The outstanding efficiency of the business mana-
ger, Allyn lfisher. made this one of the most successful plays financially that has
lu-eu given in recent years, while the excellent work of the cast made it
one of the most enjoyable.

May, 1928, Senior Class History
The Owls to all the barnyard cried:
f'We'll leave the school to youf'
i .. . .
.if "To Who - 0 - 0 F" '
KL Y 73
And now the Owls, a hundred and fifty of them, are crowding, pushing, and strug-
gling to get out the narrow gate of the high board fence and to be the first to taste the
pleasure of the big world outside their protected barnyard. In the front rank of this
expectant group are the officers who are indeed leaders. The President, Louis Rail-
ston, Vice President, Ed hlartchg Sec.-Trcas., Dick Simpson, and Yell Leader, Bill
Very near the front, in fact led by the President, are the fighting Turkey Cocks,
l, the athletes that are so much loved by the whole school. There are the football stars,
Louis Railston, Dick Simpson, Cecil McNutt, Jess Brennand and "Knothead" VVarden.
.-Xnd then the basketball players, Captain Frank Herron, who was selected "best sport
in the City Leaguen and forward on the all-Texas team, Eddie Nlartch, and "Knothead,'
Warden. In track the Owls also lead with Bill Veck and Jimmie Iylagruder.
In the midst of this happy group are the Game-Cocks-our proud little R. O. T.
l C. officers. The happy-go-lucky drum-major, Leon Rosenfield, and Colonel Jess Bren-
nand are good leaders, while many others follow. And the Game-Cocks "proudly strut
thefr dames before" as they "pass in review" led by their sponsors. Indeed, the Owlettes
are right in the center of all the group. As the Owls stop for a few minutes to wait for
the great gate to slide slowly open, they are led in their games by the pretty little Owl-
ettes who have Yalentine's Day as their own special day. Then there is Senior Ditch
Day with its Picnic-a happy crowd attends this glorious celebration.
Not only do the Owls play in the barnyard, during their last days, but they have
in their group some English Sparrows, the Scribes of the school. Of the fifteen mem-
bers of the English Club five are Owls: Eugene Bottorff, Patty Newton, Melba Pratt,
Louis Railston, and Julia North.
In the Senate, George Broderson, Vice President, and Frances Russell, Secretary-
Treasurer, are Owls. The House in electing Gerald Roberson as Speaker chose an Owl.
John Bob Greer, President of both Scholarship Club and National Honor Society, is
an Owl. .
As the Owls go, they leave as a remembrance of themselves an excellent annual in
the Spur for 1928. On the staff are: Vllill A, Trayler, Jr., hlaurice Swatt, Bill Russell,
Robert Goldoft, Gladys Allen and Patty Newton. To give the barnyard weekly pleas-
ures, the Owls lead in the production of the 'Tatler with Senior staffz- Maurine Smith,
Mildred Moore, and Maude Ward. ,
The fun of the class ends with the Senior Play, given the week of graduation. Then
come those other two events of that same all important week. The first, Baccalaureate,
held this year at the First Baptist Church, lends a solemn, quiet, and pleasing atmos-
phere to the whole occasion. The second and last, is Commencement and then the
1 gate opens wide and the Owls, a racing, dancing group, stream out into a world so new
And as they left the rest called out,
'gGood luck! farewell to you!"
"To VVho - o - o F"
'fTo You -- o - o 1"
Hoo Hoo's Who
VVitl1 round staring eyes, four summers ago,
Came soaring on tire-less wing, .I
A queer horned owl who wanted to know If
A great and most pertinent thing. I
"Hoo-Hoo's Who, in this El Paso High School, .1
Hoo's Who, on the campus and hall?" I
From locker and desk and e'en the dunce stool, ,,,
He hoo'ed out his challenge to all. '
The "Swans,' and the "Geese" and the "Bengals" there,
Derisively tittered their glee:
"just fancy a bird with such face that would dare
To challenge such wonders as We,
Why he sleeps all day long, and flies out at night,
And screeches and hoo's at the moon. T
In features and form he is simply Pa sight,
In intellect, 'daft as a loon'."
Not caring a "hoot" for all that they said,
The owl, without winking his eyes,
just stuck to his books, while they slept in bed
And stealthily captured each prize.
On campus, in halls, he reigns now supreme,
In spite of his form and his face,
By study and stealth and unyielding mien,
He's showed them "Hoo's VVho" in this case.
His conquest now o'er, again he takes wing, U
Flies silently out in the night,
'Gainst mightier foes his prowess to bring
And show them "Hoo's Whol' in the flight.
"Good-by all ye proud, ye scoffers and wise, I
Remember fine feathers can fall,
For even an owl, with wide open eyes,
Has taught you 'Hoo's Who, after all I" ,M
at Ie - 3
Hoot! Hoot! No, ,tis not the war cry of our beloved sponsor's noble ances-
tors, but the voice of the class of "28", the Owls, as they start their flight of life.
Nearly all of the two hundred varieties of owls are represented in our class. We
see, though, that a goodly number of these break away from some of the usual
characteristics of the owl family. For while the owl is somewhat given to flying,
we find only three or four aviators in our class, although any number might be
said to be up in the air about something. It is said that -a couple of them have
made non-stop flights across the Rio Grande or something like that. As is the
usual thing among owls, we find a goodly number of our members are "night-
lifers." Among these we find night-club-goers and operators, a theatrical per-
former or so, a couple of flat-foot, horn-rimmed, bespectacled detectives and a
night watchman. There is a theatre owner, too. They are found in every coun-
try as engineers, diplomats, writers and soldiers of fortune.
While owls are known to live in trees, towers and churches, we think most
of this group have outgrown their tendency to "hang around" trees. We suppose
their forefathers outgrew that. We don't see any living in towers now, either,
and very few are in a habit of staying in a church. However, we find two or
three members of the clergy in our midst and a good many are seen in church
The rest of the group seem to be following the various "flights" or paths of
life. We find two carpenters, several mechanics, a life insurance salesman, and
a number of professional men. Among these are lawyers, doctors, engineers,
newspaper and business men, also a few teachers in the group.
Well. well, it seems that every flock will have its black sheep. I mean
black owl. This proves it. We see a ufake oilstock" salesman, a political "ma-
chine bossf' and a shyster lawyer. But we see exceptionally good owls in this
group, too. There are reformers, who are working toward conservative better-
ment of political and social conditions in their country, also social workers of
The Owlesses, or girl owls, of this class are outstanding, too. We find a
successful business woman, and a number of those- who prefer to ffhootj the path
of life alone, nurses, stenographers, and an opera star and a movie queen. Behold!
there are also women politicians, but we cannot see any women governors.
Time has scattered our flock. though, and this makes it practically impossible
for these "crystal gazers" to see just what each and every one is doing. But on
the whole, this class seems to contradict the naturalistls theory that the owl is
not so wise a bird as he appears to be. It also further proves the naturalist's
idea that the owl is a very useful and innocuous bird.
As we come out of our trance and return to the present, we see that, on ac-
count of the large number of members of the- class, personalities have been omitted.
Therefore each member will have to decide which one of these examples is his
or her prophecy. VVe will all agree that this is a wonderful class, and that its
members will likely have great opportunities. As we receive our diplomas, which
are significant of our completion of one more lap in the flight of life, we regret
that some must fly North, some South, some VVest and some East, but we rejoice
in the thought that we have already surmounted many obstacles. So, here's to
the Class of "28',. lX'Iay the deeds of its members make brighter the pages of
history. Hoot! Hoot!

joyous, cheerful cackle,
Noisome, gladsome sound.
V-shaped announcer of spring's advance,
This gay horde of migrating, squawking geese.
Overhead they travel in happy flock,
Whirring, cackling, squawking,
Flapping their wings.
In mind's eye we follow them
As northward they travel.
In daytime at lakelet they stop to feed,
At night-time they travel to gain more speed,
And always they squawk,
Cackle and squawk,
"Spring is comingln
ss '. T
Who. lls Clhantielleer?
Oh, a question grave vexed the barnyard fowls
From the peacocks proud to the wise old owls.
The question to them not clear
VVas this, only this-"Who is ChanticleerF',
"VVho. who, who is he?" sighed the owl in the tree,
And the peacock echoed with a wild "chree.',
"H'honk, hlhonk, how can we learn ?" said the goose
And the magpies gossiped with tongues very loose.
The swans that on the lake did swim
Searched far and wide to learn more of him.
And the turkey in his war paint brave
Gobbled, and these very sage words gave:
4'At the VVell of Truth the answer seekg
That drop of truth from the Well might leakf,
So away they took them thru the Gate
To learn the answer ,ere too late.
They came, as though sight their eyes did lack.
From the lVell rose a figure in Orange and Black
And slowly in a mystical voice did reveal
That he was that one-the spirit ideal.
'cl am Chanticleer whom you long have sought.
By El Paso High have I been wroughtg
Of faith and patience and loyalty made
And shall endure till earthly forms fade."

The old time Magpie aped the Ways
Andcolors of the finer bird.
But the Magpie of the present days
Thinks such is quite absurd.
Today the Magpie femme sole
Steps out before the crowd,
And now assumes a leading role
Among the peacocks proud.
Today we see the Magpie male,
VVho once was meek and small,
With turkeys strut, with spread-out tail
Before the eyes of all.
In olden days the Magpie genus
VVas spe-lled without the "i",
But now they use the di" in genius
As the sign of the Magpie.

In this barnyard of ours, one may see a grace-
ful swan, a haughty owl, a pert magpie, and a
proud bantam. Although small and timid, this
bantam and its pride play an important part in
the activities of the barnyard. At all communal
gatherings of the fowls, the little brown bantam
gives the proper background because of number.
In the dispute with the haughty owl over the
fattest worm, the little bantam, out of the great-
ness of his spirit, kindly withdraws in favor of
the greater bird. In the corner of the barnyard,
the graceful swan and the haughty owl indulge
in secrets-the bantam, a bird of good taste,
reserves his conversation for the ears of the world.
Though out-clamored by the chattering magpie,
he still retains his title as "Cock of the walk"-
in the bantam class.

Captain Louie Rztilston led his
team through one ol' the hardest
schedules ever attempted by a
high school eleyen. The Tigers
fought for every game they won
and Captain Railston set the
example for his men. Louie
missed fern' taekles during the sea-
son and displayed excellent block-
ing, besides carrying the punting
burden. He averaged forty yards
on his punts and was at his best
in the Phoenix. .'Xlbuquerque.
Deming, and Tucson games.
Merrill "Nig" Usborne, at stur-
dy backfield man, whose all-
around playing made him one of
the outstanding luminaries of the
IQ27 season, will lead the orange
and black warriors next year.
The lettermen eould not have
chosen a better leader. His sen-
sational playing in the Albuquer-
que High game gave the Tigers
a touchdown. He intercepted .1
pass, taking the ball out of an
Albuquerque player's hands and
running thirty yards for the
touchdown. 'KNig,, has every
quality of a leader.
Jess Brennand alternated with Lea at center,
and between the two, they handled the position
well. When Lea's leg was injured in mid-season.
Coach Olle called on Brennand to assume the re-
sponsibilities of pivoter. Jess handled center in
the Deming and Albuquerque Indian games. and
it was his perfect pass to the backfield that en-
abled the Tigers to work their triple pass for a
touchdown against the Indians.
One hundred and twenty-five pounds of nerve
and grit handled the reins of the Tiger backfield.
Willie Schreffler, the little Tiger quarterback, com-
bined his nerve with speed to run the eleven. He
drove it through a rough and rocky road that led
to several brilliant victories for the orange and
black. Against the big Cisco Lobos and the giant
Phoenix Coyotes Willie looked like a midget, but
he made them think otherwise before the game
was over. Willie's returns to punts and his sen-
sational broken field running gained praise for
him throughout the season.
Bill Sullivan, the husky lineman whose work
was one of the highlights of the Tiger eleven, had
another great year. Bill is next year's line cap-
tain and should go even better next season. He
alternated at tackle and guard, filling both posi-
tions well, and was a hard man to put down.
Billls charging tactics in the Cisco, Phoenix, Tuc-
son, Albuquerque, and Roswell games won him
the respect of his opponents. He went into the
Roswell game with a badly injured shoulder and
stopped the Coyote drive.
Horner Warden. Knothead's little brother, came
into his own in the Albuquerque Indian game.
From il second team substitute llomer went tm
the first eleven, and his work against the big
lndians earned him his place for the remainder
of the season. llc is long and wiry, and can take
care of his position like a veteran.
Fletcher 'lligner came to us from San Jose,
California with a year's experience behind him.
"Tig" was a mild and likeable fellow, but with
this rnildness was a determination to win that
soon earned him his spurs as a full-fledged first
team man. llis addition was a timely one. as the
Tigers were in dire need of a strong lineman. "Tig"
filled the bill as well as could be expected.
Yirgil Neugebauer. playing his second and last
year at left end for the Tigers. also played his

fection every time the Tiger captain sent up a

season and intercepted several passes. His pet
play was the triple pass, with which he scored

Albuquerque lligh Bulldogs. Opposing teams
gained very little around his end of the line.

line made him a valuable lwaekficld man. He

Seldom did opposing teams gain anything through
right guard. and very often they were sent back
for losses. for the orange and black had a young
stalwart at right guard who could take care of
anything coming his way. Jerome Owen. better
known as Romey. played this position. and he
played it so well that opposing teams evaded that
side of the line. Romey got sore several times.

Geronimo Hap" Gallardo, fullback, was the
most consistent player on the team. He was good
for four or five yards every time he carried the
ball, and specialized in catching passes. A pass to
Jap usually meant a first down. for Jap clings
to passes whenever they are thrown his way. He
played an unusually strong brand of football against
the New Mexico Teachers, Tucson. Phoenix. and
Cisco. Jap's fine condition enabled him to go
through the season without receiving an injury.
Although only a stripling in size, Jimmy O'-
Rourke. a fighting lrishman if there ever was
one, worked havoc with his opponents every time
Coach Olle let him loose on the field. Jimmy's
knowledge of the game and his fighting spirit
made him a valuable man. At the beginning of
the season. Jimmy chipped off several teeth in
practice, but that was not enough to keep him
out. He came right back the next day. He did not
get into many of the games this year, but many
things are expected of him next season.
Al Valdespino, a strapping youngster with the
build of a tackle, was placed in that position at
the start of the season and Al delivered the goods.
He used his weight to good advantage and made
many holes for the Tiger backs to go through.

he filled it so well that he usually finished the

The 1927 Football Season
The Tigers drew the heavy William Beaumont Hospital team as their initial op-
ponent of the football season. Although new to Coach Ed Olle's style of play, pat-
terned after that of Texas University, the Tigers outplayed and outfought the Beaumont
eleven for a brilliant 38 to O victory. It is true that the Orange and Black machine
showed many defects, but the decisiveness of the score over-shadowed them.
Ciscofs Big Dam Lobos, for two years runners up in the Texas high school inter-
scholastic league, invaded the stadium a week later. Coach Olle's Tigers fought a des-
perate uphill battle, and lost by a lone touchdown. Cisco had a big weight advantage
over the Tigers but the Orange and Black front Wall held together like a wedge and
withstood the rushes of the Lobo backfield men. "Wee VVillie" Schreffler the gritty little
quarterback, Knothead Warden, and Marcus Simon were easily the stars of this game,
while the rest of the Bengal eleven made an excellent showing.
Coaches Olle and Wafer took their warriors to Silver City the following week to
battle the New lylexico Teachers' college. Although the Tigers opposed a college eleven,
they held their own and earned a o to o tie game. The Orange and Black line dis-
played considerable strength, and several times held the Teachers when the latter
threatened to score. Captain Louis Railston, Knothead Warden, and Jap Gallardo
played a strong game for the Bengals.
Displaying as yet their best form of the season, the Bengals took the invading
Tucson high school Badgers for a 22 to 6 trimming. The- powerful driving attacks
of Coots Simon and the sensational defensive work of Knothead Warden proved too
much for Tucson. Simon, who plowed through the Badger line time after time for
repeated gains, scored two touchdowns.
The Tiger eleven motored to Las Cruces the following week for its annual game
with the Cruces Bulldogs, football champions of New Mexico. Early in the game
Knothead Warden, the powerful Bengal tackle and the backbone of the front wall,
Went out with a fractured hip. The indomitable Tiger spirit collapsed and the Bulldogs
began a disastrous march down the field. Quarterback Willie Schreffler and Fletcher
Tigner, guard, also Went out with injuries, leaving a weak line to meet the drives of
the Bulldog backfield. Although forced to lose their best player as well as the game,
the Tigers showed their true sportsmanship in playing a clean game.
With their best players still suffering from serious injuries, the Bengals played
host to the Roswell high school Coyote-s six days later. Warden, Metcalf, Sullivan,
Neugebauer, Schreffler and lWcNutt were on the sidelines with injuries, and it was only
a shadow of the former Tiger eleven that took the field. The Tiger substitutes
opened fast and scored a safety for two points, but they could not stand the pace set
by the strong Roswell eleven.
VVith most of the regulars back in the lineup, the Bengals found their true stride
and defeated Deming high school at Deming, 24 to 6, in their next game-. El Paso
outweighed Deming, and had an easy time with its lighter opponent. The Tigers used
the plays in this game which they hoped to work successfully against Phoenix Novem-
The Tigers' annual Armistice Day dream turned into an unpleasant nightmare.
The undefeated Coyotes were bigger and stronger than ever, and the Tigers were
bowed under a 27 to 0 score. The Tigers went into the game outweighed 24 pounds
to the man, but fought until the final whistle against odds too big to be overcome.
Willie Schreffler was highly praised by Phoenix fans for his all-around playing. His
return of Phoenix punts was spectacular. Captain Railston and Virgie Neugebauer
also put up good performances on the wings. The high school thirty-six-piece R. O. T.
C. band marched on the field at the half and formed the letters "E" and HP" while
the crowd of 7,000 stood up and cheered.
lfive days later the Tiger squad met the husky eleven from the Albuquerque
Government Indian School. The red-skins came to town undefeated and without Il
point scored against them in seven games, but they went back to the Duke City with
a 7 to 6 reversal pinned on their backs. Coach Olleis men played one of the best games
of the year in defeating the Indians. The Tigers scored their touchdown with the triple
pass. The ball went from Simpson to Simon, and then to Neugebauer, who skirted
right end for eight yards and a touchdown. Captain Railston made the extra point.
which gave the Orange and Black a one point victory.
The Tigers reached the summit of their season on Thanksgiving Day when they
bowled over the proud Albuquerque high Bulldogs in the stadium before a big crowd
of high school rooters, with a score- of I3 to 0. The Million Dollar triple pass, now
worked by the Tigers with perfection and harmony, gave El Paso its first touchdown
in the last quarter. Up to this time the two teams had fought on even terms, with the
ball moving up and down the field for three quarte-rs of the game without a single
score. The Bengals brought the ball within ten yards of the Bulldog goal line on a
driving attack, interspersed with brilliant air jabs. After the failure of two lfne bucks.
Quarterback Schreffler called for the triple pass. The ball went from Osborne to Simon,
and thus to Neugebauer, who dashed around right end for a touchdown. The Tigers
scored their other touchdown late in the last quarter when Nig Osborne intercepted a
Bulldog pass and ran thirty yards. The entire Tiger squad showed up in excellent
manner, with the work of Captain Railston, Fletcher Tigner, and Virgil Neugebauer
largely responsible for the Tiger victory. Captain Louis Railston's unerring tackles
and all-around playing marked his final appearance in an Orange and Black uniform.

The best forward in Texas. That's Frank Herron, who
captained the Tigers into 26 victories. When the Bengals
went to Austin to play in the state tournament, Herron's
brilliant playing stamped him as one of the outstanding
players of the meet. At the conclusion of the tournament, he
was chosen as forward on the all-state team. a team made
up of the best high school players in Texas. Frank earned
the place with his spectacular shooting and defensive play-
ing. He scored 38 points in the two games he played.
Without Herron to show them the way. the Tigers could
not have won as many games as they did. It was Herron
who pulled the team out of the rut whenever the Tiger
machine began to swerve. At Amarillo. Herron won the game
with two foul throws after play had ended with the score
Frank was also chosen unanimously for all-city honors,
being placed at one of the forward positions. He was pre-
sented with a beautiful loving cup for having displayed true
sportsmanship during the city league season. It was Frank's
last year on the tcani. and his loss will he dearly felt. Coach
Olle will have to look far and wide for a player to fill
Captain Herron's position at forward.

Knothead Warden. the big boy of the team, played his third
and last year with the Orange and Black. And it was his best
year. In 1926, when Knothead first made the team, the Tigers
had a bad season. Knothead played standing guard on that
team. and although he tried hard, he was not rated very high.
Last year, Knothead was held back by a bad ankle, but he
showed marked improvement in his playing. The Tigers also
showed improvement in their playing and had a partly success-
ful season. This year, VVarden was at his best. Although he
did not fully recuperate from an injury to his hip which he
suffered during the football season. Knothead was one of the
mainstays of the Tiger defense. The Tigers, like Warden. had
a great season. So it can be said that as YVarden goes. so
do the Tigers.
lid Martch is a good looking boy. That's what the girls say,
but he's also good on the basketball court. Long shots were
his forte. and he put many of them through the net during
the season. When Ed was right. the goals would stream in
by the dozen, Wvoozy had a bad knee. which necessitated his
wearing a knee-brace. The brace handicapped him in his run-
ning. but this did not keep him off the first team. Martcifs
shots from difficult angles of the floor won several games for
Bill Sullivan was not a spectacular player. but the Bengals
could not very Well do without him. Having played on the
first team the year before, Sullivan was at home on the
basketball court. Bill was well fitted for Coach Olle's system
of defense, and his close guarding kept the opposition from
scoring many points. The Bengals were noted for their fighting
qualities, and Bill was about the scrappiest player on the team.
When Bill got sore, and he did every once in a while. especially
when the officials favored the other side, opposing teams did
lots of substituting in the position opposite him.
George Ponsford was a young fellow who missed few shots
and played the floor well. Ponsy improved by leaps and bounds
and was playing a fine brand of basketball at the end of the
season. At the beginning of the year, Ponsford was forward
on the second five, but his steady improvement soon put him
on the first team. llis passing and shooting in the district
meet was a big help to the Tigers. George has two more years
at high school, and if he continues to play as well as he played
this season. he should develop into an all-city or all-state player.
lt. R. Bowman was named on the second all-star City league
team, and was the only Tiger, besides Captain Herron, to rc-
ceive that honor. Bowman can run the loo yard dash in a bit
more than IO seconds. and he used his speed on the basketball
court. Ile was also a crack shot. These two assets made Bow-
man an ideal running guard. Bowman was the best guard in
the district tournament at Alpine, in the opinion of the officials.
lle played in almost every game during the season. being used
at forward and guard. lf, R. hopes to return for another
season so the Tigers need not worry over their guarding depart-
ment for next year.
Joe Arreola, who came to us from San Jacinto junior high
school, was a happy addition to the team. Joe plays the game
hard. lle ran wild several times during the season, and in the
first game with Cathedral high, scored eight field goals. He
made them from all angles of the court. He did the same
thing in some of the other games, and at times did not fare
so well in his shooting, But whether he made goals or not.
joe was always mixing it up with the rest of the Bengals. Joe
did the hero act in the game with Fort Davis at Alpine by
scoring three field goals just as the game ended to win for
Mike Corona played forward opposite Captain Herron. Al-
though not one of the mainstays on the team, Mike filled his
position in a capable manner at times. He went on an occa-
sional shooting spree, which meant more points for the Tigers.
Mike played the floor well, although he was a bit off on his
shooting in several of the games. It was his second year on
Steadiness and coolness-that's Jap Gallardo. When the
Tigers were fighting their hardest battles and needed someone
to steady them along, Coach Olle called on Jap Gallardo. Jap
has the patience and stoicism of an Indian and these qualities
made him priceless to the team. Jap fhis real name is Gero-
nimo, was used at forward and guard, and he covered both
positions to perfection.
Coots Simon was one of the boys who helped get the Tigers
in condition. He was out the first day, playing like a cyclone,
and in the final day of practice, he was going even faster. The
youngster is lively and a good player, but it was his misfortune
that the Bengals had a large squad of good material. Coots
has been on the squad for three years, but yet to make his
letter. That experience, however, will serve him in good stead
for next year.
A basketball team is only as good as its reserve material,
and Bill Billman was one big reason for the success of the
Tigers. Billman stuck it out to the last and gave the team
his whole-hearted support. Bill did not make the team in his
last year of school but the experience he received will go at
long way in making a good athlete of him.
llermilo Barrios was the smallest man on the team and also
the fastest. Milo offset his IIS pounds nith a burst of speed
that made him valuable. Ile was a clever pivots-r and a good
dribbler, and his long shots came handy. ln the games with
Roswell and Phoenix. Barrios featured wi li his spegtacular f'oor
playing. With the experience he gained this year. the midget
Tiger guard will be one of the main players on the team next
Our hats go off to Boo Allen, utility player. Although Boo
did not get into any of the games. he was always ready to
give his best to the Tiger cause. He helped put the Tigers
in condition and was out for practice every day. It was Boo's
third attempt to make the basketball team, and he likewise
has failed to make a letter in baseball and football, but it's
players of Boo's caliber that make good teams and the Tigers
should have a valuable addition next year.
The 11928 Basketball Season
Back in 1923 and ,24, when Sid Cohen, Jodie Lozano and the rest of that
brilliant crew of cagers wore the Orange -and Black, El Paso High School was
known far and wide for its prowess on the basketball court. The Tigers won
championship after championship during those years, and in 1923 went as far as
the National tournament at Chicago.
This victory march was interrupted in the season of 1926 when the Tigers
took a big drop. The veteran players were lost through graduation and the new
material could not fill the vacancies that were left. The Bengals fell into a rut
that dragged them through I3 defeats, and they were only able to win even games.
It was the darkest year in athletics El Paso High has ever known.
The silver lining in the cloud appeared in the 1927 season, and the Tigers
began an upward trend. They won 25 games that year, but failed to win the
This year, the Bengals, with a team that equalled the old championship quin-
tets, and spurred on by a student body and faculty that gave it its whole-hearted
support, established a commendable record of 26 victories out of 38 games played.
It was the hardest schedule ever attempted by a high school team, a schedule that
included games with the strongest high school teams in Texas, Arizona and New
Mexico, but the Bengals came through with colors flying. Led by coaches Ed
Olle and Clyde Wafer and the redoubtable captain, Frank Herron, the Bengals
won two games from Las Cruces, one from Phoenix, ran away with the district
title, and advanced to the quarter-finals in the state tournament.
The Bengals opened their season by winning ten consecutive games, and
among their victims were the Cruces Bulldogs, who fell before the swift onslaught
of the Olle-Wafer machine, 20 to 14. Soon after that victory, the Tigers under-
took the -almost impossible task of playing seven games in five days away from
home. The Orange and Black warriors, by sheer nerve and grit, succeeded in
winning five of their games, losing only to the Roswell Coyotes.
All the glory woven into the' Orange and Black of El Paso High School was
upheld one week later at Liberty Hall when the Bengals gave the Phoenix Union
high school Coyotes a severe 24 to II trouncing. The Tigers dropped the second
game, 23-2O,'bUt the spell of defeat which Phoenix had held over them for three
years, was broken.
The Bengals won their first game in the state meet at Austin on Friday,
M-arch 9, beating San Saba 33 to 26, but lost to Temple that same night by the
same score, 33 to 26. Considering that the Tigers had one of the smallest teams
in the tournament, they did well in winning one game. Captain Frank Herron's
magnificent playing earned him a position as forward on the all-state team.
The Tigers won second place in the City league, losing out to the DeMolays,
a team composed of ex-high school and college players. High school scored 1,048
points during the season, while holding the opposition to 670 points.

Capt. Gale Tolbert, high school's fastest man in the
220 and 440 yard dashes, was a real leader. A gritty,
hard-working, and modest athlete who looked after the
welfare of his fellow-trackmen, Tolbert radiated the Tiger
spirit in its fullest meaning. Capt. Tolbert is expected
back for another season, and his return will be greeted
by Tiger backers.
The 1928 Track Season
Never before in the history of El Paso high school did prospects look brighter
for a state championship track team than this season. ,Coach Wafer had a galaxy
of material, besides seven lettermen from the previous year. The Tiger Cinder-
path artists won their first three meets by large scores and were prepared to take
high honors in the state meet when the Spur went to press.
In the-ir first meet, the Bengals annihilated the all-star team from Fort Bliss,
92 to 30. The cream of the lower valley, a team composed of the best athletes
from Fabens, Clint and Ysleta, fell before the Orange and Black warriors in the
second meet, by a score of 941f2 to 271Q.
The Tigers ran away with the district meet at Alpine, winning nine first
places. The work of E. R. Bowman, Pete Pierce and Fletcher Tigner was a bright
spot in the high school victory. The Tigers scored 30 points more than their
closest rival, Fabens .high school. Other new men who showed up well during
the season were Jimmy O'Rourke, O4 J. Berry, James Savely, jerry Roberson,
Shelby Snyder, Louie Railston, jack Gillespie, James Bennetts, Johnny Sacra,
john Ringer, Bill Sullivan, Leo Montez and Grissom.

Frank Herron, versatile Tiger athlete, took first
place in the pole vault in the district meet at Al-
pine. He glided over 9 feet at the start of the
season, but consistent training enabled him to set
a high mark.
Few high school runners in this section can beat
Ed Coleman in the mile. Ed can step the mile
in 4 minutes, 58 seconds, a mark that should win
first place in the state meet. Coleman was not
extended in the first three meets the Tigers had,
and he won by large margins each time.
Bill Veck's long legs were his main assets. They
carried him over the hurdles with a grace and
speed that soon stamped him as the best hurdler
in this section. Veck won both the low and high
hurdles in every meet.
Jimmy Magruder was at his best in the 880
yard dash and he made it in 2 minutes, 9 and
eight-tenths seconds. This is only a few seconds
more than the state mark. Jimmy is a three year
Van Des Autels, the lanky boy with the long
legs, scored many points for high school. He could
easily step over 5 feet, 8 inches in the high jump
and.-was one of high school's best men in the
broad jump and shot put. Y
Joe Navarette ranked next to Capt. Tolbert in
the 220 and 440 yard dashes. Joe was a steady
plugger who worked hard during .the season and
helped win meets for the Orange and Black. His
rapid im rovement in speed and fonn towards the
end of the season was the result of hard training.
The Tiger baseball te-am was ready open its season when the Spur went
to press. Coach Olle had eight letterme besides a Wealth of new material with
which to mold the 1928 baseball nine. aptain Sam Sparks, Irion Briggs, Raul

Basketball. which has been our main sport heretofore, was one of the five
major sports this year. There were more Tigerettes out for Basketball than in
previous years as there were no inter-scholastic games, so everyone had an equal
chance to play-from the lowly Freshie to the grandiloquent Senior. Our Hyoung-
cr sisters" seem to have taken more interest in sports this year. This is shown
by the fact that there were barely two junior and two Senior teams, while there
were over three Freshman and two Sophomore teams.
The Senior Black team, the Owl-ettes, won the school championship, with
the Junior Blacks or Ge-ese-ettes coming in second.
Those on the all-star team, being chosen by virtue of shooting a mean basket
are: Alice Arroyo, Ruth Mann, Mary Abraham, Blaza Rodriguez, Katherine
Goodloe, and Louise Cunningham. These girls received felt Tiger heads as awards
for their good playing.

flat lines and to give thin ones pretty curves, and to produce that school-girl com-
plexion and that skin one loves to touch, the girls came out in all 57 varieties.
There were two main sides with two teams on each side. These were the Blacks,

crew, Seniors and Sophs, beat the Bantam-Goose eleven two games out of three.
There were many fine feathers lost on both sides during the skirmish.
The all-star team was made up of the following: Katherine Goodloe, Mildred
Vogel, Alice Arroyo, Isabel Abdou, Lyda Mae Heffner, Blaza Rodriguez, Irene
Arroyo, Marjorie Hendricks. Barbara Lingenfelter, hlargaret Ornelas and Clarice
'I'alpis. Very pretty felt awards were given.

Our athletic season for 1927-28 began with the first toss of the Volleyball
and ended with the last gasp of the handball player. Nlany girls came out fer
athletics this year-all sizes. shapes. and colors. Little tiny girls along with big
husky ones made leaps for the ball to make their side the winning side. Because
the lower elassmen did not all get seats in the auditorium for each assembly, they
'lput it overw on their "superiors" by coming out strong and carrying off the
school championship. The Black Bantams, or the Freshman Black team, won
, the tournament. There were three Freshman teams, three Sophomore teams,
two Junior teams, and one Senior team.
Those chosen for the all-star school team are: Alice Arroyo, Margaret Holli-
day, Anna Maria Desmet, Dolores Vasquez, Margaret Ornelas, Ada Mae Hadloek,
l Klarguerita Klunoz, Irene Herron, and Blaza Rodriguez.

Tennis was run on a school elimination basis this year. Tennis rackets were
hauled to and from classes and tennis shoes tripped down the halls at all hours.
The Memorial Tennis Courts were secured through the courtesy of Mr. A. B. Poe.
Frances Russell Won the singles at High School and came in second at Alpine.
Frances and Pauline Russell won the doubles tournainent at High School and the
famous "Libby and Lil" Qlilizabeths Crowell and Loornisj Won first place in
the doubles tournament at Alpine.
The "Tumbleweeds" was one of the outstanding clubs at High School this
year. The members Were: Blaza Rodriguez, Mae Crysler, Isabel Abdou, Clarice
Talpis, Betsy Braly, Katherine Goodloe, Alice Arroyo, Lyda Mae Heffner, Louise
Billard, "Bobby" Lingenfelter, Ada Mae Hadlock, Grace Knox, lylildred Smith,
Anita Lombardi, Mabel Wright and Martha Davis.
The team was modeled after the boys "Tumbling Tads", it undertook stunts
of all sorts such as pyramids and individual stunts. There were lean girls, fat
girls, tall girls, short girls, but all tumbled and rolled with a relish.
The outstanding uniform of the team should be mentioned. It consisted of
short black trunks with an orange stripe down the side, a black middy with an
orange tumbleweed emblem on the front, and orange and black stripes. The
club bought very attractive gold pins With its emblem engraved on them and the
guard pins with "28." This club performed for numerous organizations and pro-
grams, including carnivals, circuses, assemblies, and club programs.
There were twenty-one members in the Aesthetic Club this year, under the
supervision of Miss Lovie Mai Langford. They were: Betsy Dixon, Isabel Abdou,
Thelma Knox, Alberta Moore, Mary Abraham, Barbara Barber, Jodie Barlowe,
June Barnwell, Florida Brown, Gertrude Fluharty, Bessie Fleager, Cecil Henry,
Lurline Hughes, Myrtle Jones, Anita Knotts, Martha McGhee, Eloise Rokahr,
Elizabeth Sherrell, Ethel Shipp, Marjorie Tobin, Doris Webster.
The girls win a place in this club by interpreting music. It is the "select
few" who are chosen-the future Pavlowas. These girls have danced for a great
number of entertainments including "gym" demonstrations, club programs, assem-
blies, P. T. A. programs, and many others. The girls learn to move gracefully,
interpret music to advantage, go through healthful exercises, and learn many at-
tractive dances. A
Baseball! The girls came out in nines and came out in tens. This
sport seems to be the favorite one with the majority of girls. We had
inter-club competition this year instead of the usual class skirmish.
There were the following teams: "The Bellowing Boosters," "The
Anesthetic Aesthetic Club," "The Terrific Tumblers," 'lThe Cunning
Courtesy-ers," "The Grinning Girls Reserves," and, last but not least,
"The Jumping 'Gym' Classes." Many Babe Ruths and other kinds
of Ruths showed to advantage. Small girls dodged through tall, lean
girls' legs, while big fat ones carried the bases with them or flung the
bat across the stadium in disgust.
The all-star school team was as follows: Alice Arroyo, Ruth Mann,
Blaza Rodriguez, Mabel Wright, Marguerita Munoz, Mary Abraham,
Anita Lombardi, Mildred Smith, and Josephine Grado.
Swimming came in with a splash and passed out with -a gurgle.
Caps and suits of the latest Easter-egg shades adorned Community
Center Swimming Pool. Adorned? Well, some did.
Girls learned new strokes and improved old ones, besides diving
and passing life-saving tests. Many heads were bumped and toes
bruised, but What's a head and some toes between swimmers?
There were inter-class tournaments held featuring races, diving,
and other stunts. Life-saving exhibltions were put on and emblems
Swimming ends a very successful year for girls' athletics in El Paso
High. Many emblems were won, healthy girls were turned out, and
good sportsmanship was taught as an essential.

On Staging at High Selhtooll Play
First Prize Essay in State Interscholastic League Essay Contest
for District No. Seventeen
Now I know why there are insane asylums. If you want to keep away from
these worthy institutions, don't take Dr. Blossom's Blooming Pills-just refrain
from m-anaging a high school playl I have directed one-this accounts for my
present state of mind, or rather, lack of mind.
Our nice new high school had to put on a play, of course. After suiting
the time for "tryouts" to everyone's convenience but my own, I finally collected
all of the members of the Dramatic Club and we had "tryouts" And such
First, there was Peggy, the cute little flapper, who would interrupt herself in
the middle of every other speech to signal frantically to Jimmy, who was haunting
the doorway, that she would ube there in a minnitf' "She really should have the
lead" because Jimmy said she was lots cuter than any of the others. Peggy,
when not motioning to Jimmy, was furiously "popping her gum." This was very
delightful-excellent on the nerves.
Then came the dashing "Hi Skule Sheik"-Flaming Youth, and all that!
After he read his parts he would slowly gaze around to see if he were being fully
appreciated. One had to "grin and bearv his he-avily oiled hair.
Next, there was the boy who had "been in a play once in grammar school."
He reminded one at short intervals that he took the part of the king in a play once.
Une wondered where he took it! He used very dramatic gestures to impress upon
everyone his superior theatrical experience.
Then there was the fat girl whose mother said "plump" figures had come
back into style, and who liked "little skinny" girls anyway 0? "Yes, Babe should
really be given the leadf' Babe went home happily satisfied that she was the
The "girl with long hair' sauntered gracefully in, about a half hour late. Of
course, she would have "the lead." 'fMother just returned from Paris, fa pause
for this remark to 'sink in'l and she says all of the women are letting their hair
grow out. Bobbed hair is really becoming passe." Of course this must be an up-
to-date play so her remark really closed the subject. She would look up in the mid-
dle of the reading lines to gaze soulfully around to be sure everyone was listening
Then there was Bobby, the wit of the crowd. He was screamingly funny to
himself, and boringly funny to everyone else. Bobby, determined to be the "life
of the show," insisted upon putting in various Hwise cracks" of his own. Yes,
even Bobby's mother said that he was "a born comedianf
Last but not least-there was no least in the cast-was the girl with flaxen
curls and china-blue eyes. She was very dainty and always wore blues and pinks
and organdies and laces, Her mother said if she couldn't be the leading lady she
couldn,t be in the play at -all. That, of course, settled the matter!
After the harrowing experience of holding "tryouts," I finally escaped to my
home, quite fatigued, to say the least, But here was a nice steaming hot supper.
Ahl But before the second bite had been devoured the telephone rang furiously.
"Miss Troy? This is Mrs. Norton. I just want to tell you that Billy has had
'Is-5 some experience in acting. He played the part of the king in a play at school once.
The dear boy is ro modest-he wouldn't tell you for anything. What? You
knew it? Well, one of the youngsters must have told you. All right. I just
wanted to tell you-I hope I haven't disturbed youf' Mothers are Jo helpful!
I managed to gofbble up four bi'tes befcre the telephone again rang. This
time it was Miss China-Blue Eyes, mother. She wanted to know what kind of
material to get for her darling's costumes. What, you haven't chosen the cast?
But of course, Ethel will get the lead? Well, really, if Ethel cannot take the
lead I won't allow her to be in the play!" I fooled the rest of the fond mothers
by plugging the telephone bell. One has to resort to many devices when she takes
over a high school play.
Peggy and the 'gFlaming Youth" got the parts of the young girl and her sweet-
heart. "The girl with the long hairn and modest little Billy Cwho had been in a
play oncelj were the father and mother. They were only reconciled to their parts
by telling them that the parents really had leading roles -also. Babe, the fat
girl, was the hardest to deal with, but upon being told that the maid really
had a very cute part and flirted with everyone, and that she would look "dear"
in a "little" black dress with white cap and apron, she accepted the part. Miss
China Blue-Eyes' mother finally consented to her playing the part of "little
sister" upon being confidentially told that this part was really "the whole show."
Bobby was thoroughly satisfied with his part, and spent his time trying to think up
clever lines to put in.
But the worst was yet to come! Rehearsals! Babe would not say "yes sir."
to that "stuck-up Billy Norton!" Bobby positively refused to steal a kiss from
"that fat ole Babe," and Peggy simply could not let "Flaming Youth" kiss
her at the end "cause Jimmy will be in the front row and he's awf'ly jealous!"
Billy could not remember his cues and Miss China-Blue Eyes flatly refused to
lisp-"Mother thinks its silly." That settled that. Peggy couldn't come to re-
hearsal Monday night, she promised jimmy to go to the basketball game with him.
The girl with the long hair's mother was entertaining visitors "from abroad,"
so of course, she could not practice any this week. Miss China-Blue Eyes had a
cold and "mother said the night air might hurt my throat"-thus she couldn't come.
But the "big night" finally came, as "big nights" will do, Besides Billy's
missing a few cues, Babe's slipping on some soap, Bobby's forgetting some of his
lines, and Mrs. Smith's last-minute refusal to lend her Spanish shawl, and the cur-
tain boy's not showing up as he had to take his cousin to a party, the play went
over all right.
Thus, I have directed my first and last high school play, and Heaven forbid
that any of my well-meaning readers should ever be afflicted with this torture.
From poppies growing
With incense blowing,
The gentle breezes sigh.
White clouds are drifting
Their light robes shifting
ldly through the sky.
Rain lightly falling
ls musically calling,
Sweet flowers from their restg
Harsh winter's dying-
Nature's soft crying
Lures sweet birds in their nest.
Just Like an Woman
Some ladies gay met a boy one day,
W'hose legs were briar-scratched.
His pants were blue.
But -a nut brown hue
Marked the place where his pants w
"Why don't you patch
With a color to match?"
They said as they laughed in glee.
He hung his head
As he bashfully said,
"lt ain't no patch, it's me."

E. P. H. S. Opponents
Tlhte Rifle Team
The Rifle Team has had one of the most successful seasons this year that it has ever had.
At the time this Annual goes to press, not a single match has been lost. All of the boys have worked
hard this year and among their defeated opponents is our old e11en1y. Phoenix High School. Sergeant
Place has coached the team most efficiently and has devoted practically all of his time to develop-
ing and bettering another winning team for High School. He was handicapped at the very first
in that he had only one letterman around which to build the team. His tireless efforts. coupled
with those of Captain Brown and the splendid cooperation of all the boys, have made one of the
best teams E. P. H. S. has ever had. As only two men, Ringer and Porcher, will be lost next year,
it is expected that the school will have an even better team to carry on the old colors.
E. P. H. S. placed third in the Eighth Corps Area Intercollegiate Matches. having been de-
feated by Fort Worth High School and Sunset High School, Dallas, by very small margins. Ringer
and Porcher each Won a bronze medal for placing in the high ten best shots of the Eighth Corps
Area. Ringer having placed third and Porcher. seventh.
The following members made sweaters and letters for this year: Lieutenant-Colonel John T.
Ringer. Captain. Major Julian Gryder. Major Stoney Porcher. Second Lieutenant Wiley T. Banes
and Captain Robert Marshall. Ringer is also winner of the Scotten Medal for the total high score
for the season. Matches fired this year were:

football, basketball, tennis, baseball, track and rifle. The purpose of the club is
to promote a spirit of fellowship among the lettermen of the school, and to en-
courage other boys to take an active part in athletics.

presents to the school a bronze tablet engraved with the names of the honor gradu-
The definite object of the Club this term is to popularize scholarship among the
student body and to show by the leadership and service of its members that high

"play fair" as to position in lines. The guards of the lunch periods vie with one an-
other in trying to keep the floors and tables clean. Already the results of such super-
vision is very evident in the conduct of the pupils and the appearance of the cafeteria.

just as the Chamber of Commerce is to support the city, so is the Girls'
Booster Club to support the High School. That is their business and purpose-To
boost! to build!
There are fifty members in the Girls' Booster Club, each one working to
make their High School bigger, better and to let people know this. They are all
willing to do their best in supporting not only athletics but any other projects which
might come up-school plays, elections, school activities of all kinds.
Right now the Girls' Booster Club has entered heartily into the spirit of the
Kilkare Karnival and all working their best towards the success of this enterprise.
Under the excellent sponsorship of bliss Grace Long and hliss Charlee Kelly

The High School orchestra, organized for the benefit of those musically in-
clined, has developed into one of the most entertaining and beneficial clubs in High
School. Besides giving pleasure to the members themselves, this club also adds
distinction to commencement exercises, senior plays, and assemblies. A member
not only learns to play in harmony with other instruments but he may also receive
private instruction from Mr. Vincent, the conductor, free of charge. This year, for
the first time, the club has been conducted as other clubs by electing officers.
Mr. John Vincent, the conductor of 1927-28, has worked with untiring energy
to make the orchestra a success and judging by the enthusiasm of all, has suc-
ceeded in making the club one of the biggest and best in the El Paso High School.

The Art Club keeps alive in the school that spirit of appreciation of those
things that are beautiful and helps to make the school something more than a
mere place to learn geometry solutions and Latin verbs. The club has one of the
largest memberships of the high school organizations. This year, the work has
been soap sculpture. Under the deft hands of the club members, bars of soap, big
and clumsy, have become mighty blacksmiths, ferocious bullclogs, or the benign
countenances of great men. These sculptures will be entered in a national compe-
tition and it is to be reasonably hoped that they will win their share of the prizes
offered. Miss Nell Scott is sponsor of the club.

organized in the spring te-rm and it Was not long before the membership
quota was full. There are forty-five members.
The purpose of the club, primarily, is to encourage the production of
amateur theatricals among the students, and it also serves as practical ex-
perience for those who specialize in dramatic art. One act plays are produced
before assemblies, and plays to which an admission is charged are given.
The interest shown in this work has "put over", the Dramatic Club, and

The House of Representatives
The House of Representatives has been an experiment in extra-curricular activi-
ties this year. Two Houses have served the student body thus far. The first House,
composed of one representative from each of the fifty three home rooms in the High
School served during the fall term. this spring the Second House has been composed
of the same number of representatives, some of Whom were new, the others being old
members who made active campaigns to be returned for a second term.
It has been the purpose of this organization to develop in the student body a whole-
some attitude toward the school organizations through the Home Rooms, to discuss prob-
lems in the student life for which pupils may offer a solution, and to give training in
parliamentary procedure. For these purposes a constitution has been drafted by a
committee, has been discussed section by section, adopted after much earnest discus-
sion, debates have been heldg bills proposed, discussed, passed and placed upon the
Principal's desk for his consideration. The House has worked through committees as-
signed to different tasks, an effort being made to use as many students as possible.
While everything hoped for by the House has not been accomplished, the pioneers
in this new field of extra-curricular activities have sought to establish the House in the
hearts and life of the student body, in such a helpful Way that in the coming years, it
may justify the hopes and ambitions of those responsible for its creation.

assistance of several advisers, two good pupils were selected from each class, making a total of
Some of the purposes of this body are: to eschew cheating. to investigate causes of failures,
and to strive to lessen the number of failures, to encourage all extra-curricular activities, to help
to create a right sentiment and school spirit, to help to establish fine traditions by which students
should live, and to discuss questions of interest to the student body. Sometimes a lecture on a
pertinent subject is given by a representative citizen, sometimes free discussion and debate are
The Senate sponsors the custom of holding exercises at the first assembly of each term to
greet newcomers to the school, and it will be the pleasure of the members of the Senate then and
at all times, to try to make the new boys and girls feel as much at home as the members of the
Senate do themselves.
Efforts are made to cooperate with the Student House of Representatives and one special
function of the two bodies is to serve as a link between student body and faculty. At every
weekly meeting the dignity of parliamentary procedure is observed.
The members of the Senate follow: Frances Russell. George Broderson, Annie Lyles, Harold
Long, Valerie Neidermeier, Richard liscontrias, Mary Magruder, Myron Allen, Margaret Wright,
Elizabeth Owen, Robert McKee, Barbara Stain, Branch Craige, james Ullman. Sponsors: Mrs.

The hlelody Girls of El Paso High School have done much toward
the development of school activities. They are the school,s source of cheer-
fulness, and due to the splendid leadership of Mrs. Da Nero, have helped
greatly in creating an interest in music throughout the school.
The Melody Girls took up their work from the beginning with interest,
joy and enthusiasm, and have succeeded in helping to make this year one of
the outstanding years in the music development of High School.
