Teaching the lessons taught round the world. But soon the classes will scattered be, Alike the teacher onward goes; And time the stately school, you’ll see. Will leave in ruin as conquered foes. In this great year, by this proud school, We dedicate our annual small, To those, whose daily care and rule Have helped and bettered all. Spirit, that made these teachers dare To teach, and help the youths to see. Bid Time and Critics gently spare The book we leave to them and thee.

On Jesse we can sure depend. Bring him your trouble, it will surely end. 15There’s Verna steady at her work. No lessons does she ever shirk. And Ida is a jolly lass; A chance to laugh she’ll never pass. So now I come to Harold Hug. At acrobatic stunts he’ll tug. While Howard over lessons pores; And Jess goes strolling out of doors. All boys does Bessie Gorden shun Until she finds the proper one. There is no two in this whole line That’s quite like Clar and Buena Fine. There’s Lottie, who is always ready To laugh, but studies very steady. Then Lucian favors a senior girl. And Lillian is as true as pearl. And Belle no one can e’er surpass In all that jolly Sophomore class. And Mollie, too, has got a smile. In short they all are worth the while.

Captain Rest and his men are preparing to make a voyage into the Land of Sleep. And all the children are getting into the boat to go.” “Little children like me?” queried William. “Yes, Billie, they are all going, and we’ll imagine that we’re going with them. See! Captain Rest is already pulling in the anchor. Now the boat begins to back away from Drowsy Town and we are really on our way to Sleep. Everything is nice and quiet. Look at the river, isn't it a pretty color? All purple for miles and miles. ” “What’s that I hear? Do you hear it, too? It sounds like echoes of dancing feet. See, that little girl is asking the Captain.” “What’s that? Why, it’s fairies dancing. They are having a grand ball tonight,” is the reply of Captain Rest. “Do you s'pose you really can hear fairies dancing?” “Of course you can when you are making a voyage into the Land of Sleep. But what’s that?” “Only the shores of Nightmare Land,” the Captain answers. “What if some naughty little Elf should strand us there? Hear these bats! How much noise they make as they fly by our boat. ” “Now the boat is turning around to go home. We are coming back in the same track we went down on, and , why. bless the darling, if he isn’t asleep!” exclaimed Mother. When William awakened, the morning sun shown in through the window. “What was the rest of it?” asked William, as she tucked him in bed for an addition to his morning nap. “But haste ashore is the order now. Scramble out over stern and prow, And up through the streets of Drowsy Town Quick, ere the castle walls are down! For the restful shadows, dark and sweet. Are chased by the sunbeam’s flying feet: The day appears with its pomp and din. And the walls of the city are crumbling in,” quoted Mother softly. —Erma Dailey, ’14 20R1$TR S1»1«X TI( » Have you seen it,-—a picture in Memory’s Hall, deeply set in gold and studded with fair jewels? • Just a picture?" you say.

The hand of a master has de- signed litis setting for the work of the All-Master. Twelve gems, like bright su.is, shed a radiance there and illumine the canvas enclosed. ,,ml there in their light the picture is seen—twelve faces, all calm and you lit ful, all happy yet sat. But see! on each face is love and en- dearment. These are the faces of once happy schoolmates, once young and blithe as you now, but they left the old sehoolhouse in T2 and set out upon diverse paths. Look quick! for it lades,—it has vanished and naught but the frame remains. Look! “’12” glows alone in the frame. “Are there many such pictures?” you ask me. Aye, scores, some unnamed in yon hull.

Auj.ks Milne, T2. St'MMAltY OF STODDARD’S LUCTI UKS Thou shalt not grin. Thou shall not gaze fondly on thy neighbor’s girl. I hou shall look grim as Death at all English recitations. Thou shalt not plot to gain a position on the honor roll to become exempt from examinations. I hou shalt give and hazard all thou hast and receive as much as thou dcservest. Thou shall not covet thine neighbor's pen, neither bis English or bis Algebra. Thou shalt await patiently the continuance of the seventh volume “Stoddard’s Lectures.” Thou shalt not stay out late at night, either at picture shows or -21-“Barn Dances,” unless arrangements have been made with thine Eng- lish teacher, I lion shalt hereafter now and henceforth and forever sit on the I rout seat during all English recitations, never forgetting to wear a pious expression or an invisible halo. Thou shalt, in other words, be good, speak good English, (neither foul or profane) mind thine teacher, and be happy. Hoy E. Spencer, ’14. A I.KAk IN MENTAL KMSIORVOIliS In a certain head in tin year 1911 there were five reservoirs built. The first, the largest and most important of all. was named Algebra. Next came English, a nicely made reservoir, then came Physical Geog- raphy. General History came next in turn, followed by the smallest one named German. The reservoirs all stood in a row. During the first five weeks, all seemed to be standing their test as well as could be expected. But the sixth week a leak started in reservoir one, and Algebra began to drop to the ground. A plumber was called and he stopped the leak with a little home work. English, Physical Geography, General History and German looked like they were all right, so were not examined for an- other six weeks. At the end of that time Algebra was in second class condition. English, Physical Geography and General History in excel- lent condition, but German must have sprung a leak shortly after being examined, for it was nearly empty. The leak was put right, but the tank has not yet filled up. Bai.ph Milne, ’11. ----------o--------- 22A SKXK )K TMA(»K1)Y (By tiii: Little Moese in the Corner).

Kirby, (leaning back in his chair and looking at watch): I do wish they would hurry! It’s the same old story ever year; but it won’t take long for ME to tell them what we'll do. (Enter Beatrice Littlefield). I)r. Kirbi : Come right in. I’ve been waiting for you. The rest of the School Board will be here by four. I suppose you have come to see how much money we are going to spend on this Senior class? Beatrice: Yes, sir; you know at commencement time there’s quite a little expense and we want to know just what you 11 do for us. Dr. Kirbi): Well, 1 can tell you very soon. First (counting.on his fingers), we will provide a place; second, a speaker; third, the diplomas. You must remember the diplomas are quite an expense, besides it costs TWENTY-FIVE CENTS extra for getting your names printed on them and then we furnish the ribbons to tie them with. Beatrice: But you gave the first graduating class quite a liberal amount? , Dr. Kirbi): Yes. we'll admit that, but we made fools of ourselves then. Beatrice: You gave the Bill class fifty dollars. Dr. Kirby: We did not. Beatrice: I don’t care, they said you did. (Enter Mr. Shoemaker). —23—Dr. Kirby: Hello John! Well, Bee and I have had a quarrel al- ready. Beatrice: No we haven’t. 1 have only been trying to get an esti- mate of what money we can expect from the Board for our commence- ment expenses. Dr. Kirby: Well, I’ve already told her we will supply the place, the speaker, and the diplomas. Beatrice: Mow about the programs? Will you supply them? Dr. Kirby: We will, if we see fit. That’s OUR business and you need not worry your head over other affairs not your own. How abnui it. Shoemaker? Shoemaker: That’s right. Doc. Dr. Kirby: You see this commencement exercise is an affair given by the Board. WE simply invite YOU to attend and be on time. While you are the chief actors of the occasion, nevertheless it is OUR affair. So, when the time is set, please be there, for when the SCHOOL BOARD gives anything we commence promptly, not a minute before or after. (Enters Agnes). Dr. Kirby and Shoemaker: Hello there! And what have you to say? Agnes, (laughing and taking a chair): Oh! we want some money. You see we’ve got a number of announcements to get and we wondered if you would help us pay for them. Dr. Kirby: We will not! The School Board intends to invite the public, one and all, rich and poor, great and small, thru' t ie Elgin Recorder. How about it. Shoemaker? Shoemaker: That’s right. Doc. Dr. Kirby: If you wish to announce the exercises to your friends that is your business and you will stand your own expenses. Agnes, (handing Dr. Kirby the announcement the class had chosen): This is what we picked out. Shoemaker: I don’t believe in invitations. They arc only sent to those from whom you expect to get a big present. Beatrice: But those are announcements, not invitations. Dr. Kirby: Well, I don’t think those are any more appropriate than something like this, (handing Agnes a soiled old hospital announce- ment). Of course, it hasn't that pretty little picture up in the corner, but it’s just as good and serves the purpose just the same. Beatrice: Well, but we’ve already picked on that and, as far as the Board paying for them, I assure you we were willing to pay for them ourselves. That isn’t what we come to talk about. IT’S HOW Ml (.11 you are going to give us for our other expenses at eommcnce- 24inent time. I)r. Kirby: Well, vve don't pay for any invitations, that’s sure! Ague»: These are not invitations, they are announcements. (Knter the three boys). Shoemaker: This is what looks good to me; you can talk to girls any old time. We have talked with them every other year until now. Well now, boys, what have you got to say? (Hen and Fulton gracefully take the stools, Robert a chair). Robert: We’re here to see bow much the School Board is going to help us out. Dr. Kirby: Well, I’ve said it before. I’ll say it once more. We furnish the place, the speaker, and the diplomas. lieatriee, (sarcastically): And programs if you see fit? Dr. Kirby: That’s our business. Robert: How about our flowers? Shoemaker: We’ll have to do a little lor you. Agues: Well then, do you think you can get us the flowers to decorate with? Dr. Kirby, (for the thirteenth time): We get the place, speaker and diplomas, I said, and nothing more. If you want flowers then get a few house plants and put a row along the edge of the stage. Ren : But we have our class flower, with which we want to decorate. lieatriee: We girls will each have to have our boquets to carry. Agnes: And we have got to have something more than house plants to decorate that stage with. Dr. Kirby: That is for you to tend to. Robert : Maybe we can work Mr. Shoemaker to help us out here. Shoemaker: I don’t know, I’m pretty stubborn. lieatriee: Well, I’m going to go! (Rets up and gathers up books and turns to the door). Dr. Kirby : Well, you don’t need to go away mad. lieatriee, (returning to her seat): I’m not mad, I simply ha o found out what you are going to do. or rather not going to do, and that is all I came for. Agnes: I just don’t see where we will get the money for every thing. lieatriee: Oh, we’ll give some more entertainments. Dr. Kirby: Yes. you’ll work us one way, if not another. Robert: Sure. Dr. Kirby: They are always contriving some scheme. How about it, John? Shoemaker: They sure are. Doc. —25-Dr. Kirby: Well, we will furnish the place, speaker and diplomas. Beatrice, (persistently): And the programs. Dr. Kirby, (ignoring Bee’s remark): We invite you to attend. Be on time. Cut down your expenses. You don’t need hut about ten an- nouncements apiece and let the Juniors and Sophomores do the deco- rating. Beatrice: Never mind that, we’ll buy our own flowers. And be- sides, that’s OUR business! I)r. Kirby: Yes, if you have a special class flower that is your business. So now children run along and be good; and don’t hi' like the woman whose husband told her that the cow had swallowed the grind stone and she said, “That’s just as I expected.” Of course, little things come up when we might be persuaded to give you some financial assistance, but I’ve been thru’ the graduating mill myself about four time. Each time the Board merely invited me to come, and besides 1 paid from two to ten dollars out of my own pocket for my diplomas. Beatrice: It’s better than I expected, for you say you WILL have programs printed. Dr. Kirby, (reluctantly): Yes; hut that’s our business. (Exeunt the committee). Beatrice, (going down stairs, looking back at the others following sheepishly): “That’s just as I expected.” Fulton: It’s worse than I expected. Beatrice: Well, we will just have to dig down in our own pockets. Ben: I can dig, but there’s nothing there to dig out. Fulton, (laughingly): 1 guess we’ll have to pass the hat. Beatrice: But we’ll not come asking the Board for any more help. Agnes amt Boys, (altogether): I SHOULD SAY NOT. ------------o--------- —26-R KK WALL A road winding up through the meadows.

Russell, T2. ----------o----------- —27—Tin: k. ii. s. kiiunc (H it We first conceived the idea of having a Hiding Club when a few of the girls with Miss Merwin and Miss Stoddard rode out to Hock Wall one Sunday on horseback. On our way home, after having surveyed this wonderful work of Nature, which was made even more beautiful by an ideal autumn day, we decided that any of the High School girls who wished might belong to the club. Our next trip was to the Minam, about fifteen miles from hlgin. It is hardly necessary to say that we enjoyed it to the fullest extent, for it was great fun climbing those steep foothills and looking over the high crags and wending our way through the trees until we found ourselves in some beautiful valley, through which a mountain sticam babbled on its way to meet the river. The best time of all was when six of the club camped out all night in Wallowa Canyon. We started late on Saturday afternoon and after riding about seventeen miles, we cam to our stopping place on the bank of the Wallowa river. It was after dark when we arrived and late before we had our campfire built and supper ready. Never were mortals more hungry and viands never disappeared with such lightning rapidity. After our appetites were appeased, we sat around the fire tell- ing stories—ghostly and otherwise bloodcurdling tales. Myrtle (.hand- ler related of how she punched cows 'way back in the sixties. We -ill thought that a queer place to punch them. All through the night we dozed and caroused alternately. Hut about four o’clock in the morning it began to rain, a steady downpour. W e picked up our beds and hiu- ried into a nearby barn, where we crept in upon the hay, a wretched, shivering, bedraggled half dozen. At last sleep held us in its thrall— oh, blessed sleep—and we were worm. By morning the rain had ceased and all supposed we would have a pleasant ride home. About half way home, however, the rain caught us again and the downpour continued until after the end of our ride. In spite of the cold and rain we all agreed that we wouldn t have missed the good time.

This year it took place in the opera house on the evening of October 25th. Girls, both large and small, brought baskets covered with beautiful flowers, ribbons and tissue paper. Some were filled with enough good things for large families, others only held enough for two. Each basket was sold by the auctioneer, Mr. J. Barnes, to the highest bidder. When the baskets, some forty in all, were sold, the buyers found their partners or some one else’s or traded with their neighbor for the “right girl’s” basket. Then the delicious lunches, that only our High School girls know how to prepare, were eaten. All had an enjoyable time and at a late hour went home thinking “how happy are these, my school days.” Nei.i.ie Bish, ’12. ----------o----------- THIS 'ARMVAL Even in the morning of November 25, 1911, you could see High School boys and girls hustling about preparing for the Carnival to be held that evening in Blumenstcin’s Opera Mouse. It was well attended. At first a short program was given, the main feature of which was the song, “The Spanish Cavalier,” acted out bv Gladys Bhodes and Boy Spencer. After the program, people busied themselves looking at the school exhibit, which was very good. The amusing features of the evening were the side shows, the gypsy fortune telling camp and the telegraph station. The High School is certainly thankful for the interest shown by the people of Elgin at our carnivals. Next year there will he new features, as the boys will pride themselves in exhibiting fruit and vegetables and the girls their fancy cooking and sewing. Our carnival netted us a little more than sixty-five dollars and we promise that the next one will be equally as good. Beatrice Litti la iu n. '12. -30Till: KMltROIl KUY IA1J Not in the history of onr school Inis anything like this been intro- duced before. How we became interested in embroidery I do not know, unless it was seeing Miss Merwin making so many beautiful things. We decided to meet every Tuesday evening at the school house and work for an hour or two. The first meeting was held January 11th and it was a very amusing scene. Miss Merwin was kept busy every minute, for some one was continually getting the thread in a knot or another had forgotten to make the right stitch, or occasionally one would hear “ouch” murmured in a corner where someone had pricked her finger with a needle. At the second meeting there were more there than the week before, for several of the little girls from the grades came to learn the various stitches. As the weeks went on it became more and more interesting. and at every meeting each one had learned something new. As the time passed on Miss Merwin was asked if the boys were allowed to come. The answer was that each hoy must either bring some em- broidery or his sister or somebody elso’s sister. After that the boys were as much interested in embroidery as were the girls. The club voted to have their last meeting March 26th. The follow- ing week the new baseball suits came and the hoys asked the girls to call a special meeting of the club to embroidery E’s on their caps. We all fell that this was a fitting close to our year. All the members re- gretted ‘h it the pleasant evenings spent together were to be no more. Oi.i.ivk Mc.Siiain, ’12. -31-32I )K1 IATKS The interschoiastic debates, given this year between La Grande, Island City and Elgin, were entered into by the boys and girls with a spirit that showed them to be alive to all that is progressive and up- building. Ben Hush, Irma Hotchkiss and Beatrice Littlefield made up one of Elgin’s teams, and Jesse Witty, Edith Bailey and Harold Market! the other. The first number of the series was given here on the evening of February 16th, between Island City’s affirmative and our negative; namely, Jesse Witty, Edith Bailey and Harold llackrtt. The question was, “Resolved, that the Federal Government should adopt tariff for revenue only.” After a bitter struggle our team won the decision of the judge. Elgin’s affirmative team was delayed by a landslide and the debate at Island City, which should have taken place at the same time of the debate here, was postponed until February 22d. At that place the teams were evenly matched, but our team came out victorious, thus making two victories for Elgin. Arrangements have been made for two debates with La Grande to take place in the near future, and every one agrees that it will he a “fight to the finish.” The boys and girls have shown themselves to be real live American products, and under the able coaching of Miss Stoddard, the best of results is hoped for. Nki.uk Rrsii, ’12. 34ItASKHAIJi HKXHITr After the High School baseball team was organized in the month of March, the boys had to raise some money in some way to obtain their suits and supplies to be had during the season. They met one evening with Mr. Bailey to discuss ways and means of obtaining financial aid. After a few suggestions and discussions they decided to give a progra i which would be something out of the ordinary. Mr. Bailey was given charge of the program. He selected the best and most talented of the high school and assigned to each a special part. Much time was spent in preparation and each participator did his best. The entertainment was given in the opera house, March 9th, and was in every way a success, very entertaining and amusing. 1 he monologue by Harold Hackctt showed him to be a first class dude in every respect. He discussed quite fully his many love affairs, which were very amusing. John Masten, one of our promising musi- cians. played the guitar and sang for us. lie received a hearty encore when he sang “Santa Fe.” Another of the entertaining numbers was “The Man from Nowhere,” a farce by Edith Galloway, Jessie Witty, Reinhold Klinghammer and Oscar Furgason. Edith and Jessie played their parts well, as they were heroine and hero; “they lived happy ever after.” Reinhold proved himself equal to the occasion when it comes to showing ill temper on the stage. I he main feature of the evening was the acrobatic tumbling and boxing by two of our high school boys, Robert Blumenstien and Harold Hug, under the direction of John Dabney. Miss Stoddard favored us with a reading which was highly appreciated. The snappy sayings and jokes in the “Hot Shots” by Harold Hackett and Henry Furgason, showed plainly that the Elgin High School does not lack humor and wit. The closing numbers were songs, “Mainly Lou" and “Jessimine,” by the coon quartet of the school. The boys sang as if they had just arrived from the old plantation. The many people who attended said it was one of the best enter- tainments ever put on by the school. The boys secured the neat sum ol -$45.60 for their work and they look forward to a prosperous year in the baseball line. Neu.ie Rush, T2. — 36tui: i iiii«o.matiiean society The Pliilomattiean Literary Society was organized on the evening ol September 17th, 1909, by the pupils of the Elgin liigli School, for the purpose of developing its members along social and literary lines. The organization has existed in a satisfactory manner during the past two years, but never has so much interest been shown as during the present year. On December lltli, a meeting was called by the members for the purpose of re-establishing the society and adding new members to tin list. Hoy Spencer was elected temporary chairman and Ben Rush temporary secretary. Several committees were appointed and we ad- journed to meet the first and third Thursdays of each month in the high school room. Robert Brack was elected as president of the society, Alice Rhodes vice-president, and Ben Rush secretary. The first debate was given Dcember 21st, on the question, “Resolved, that woman’s suit rage should he granted.” The affirmative speakers were Edith Bailey and Beatrice Littlefield; negative. Ben Rush and Harold Hackett. The judges de- cided in favor of the affirmative. One of the special numbers on the program was the song given by the negro quartet. We were favored with a talk by Mr. Hailey during the evening. Probably the most amusing debate of all was held January 1th, on the question, “Resolved, that a woman has as much right to propose as a boy.” The affirmative team were Nellie Rush and Irma Hotchkiss; negative. Reinhold Klinghammer and Roy Spencer. The efforts put forth by the girls won the decision of the judges. An entertaining program was rendered January 18th. I he debate, “Resolved, that four years of travel is more beneficial than lour veais of college life,” was one of the most interesting held during the year. The affirmative speakers were Lillian Page and I-niton Meade; the negative, Jesse Witty and Edna Yeager. The latter were victorious. Miss Stoddard favored ns with a reading as did Esther Trueblood. Tim debate “Resolved, that the government should adopt a tan!! for revenue only,” took place February 1st; affirmative, Irma Hotchkiss j,nd Harold Hackett; negative, Nellie Rush and Edith Boyd. I he al- firmative wen. The special number was the recitation given by Beatrice Littlefield. .. , The program given February lath was enjoyed by all in attendance. Several of the girls sang a chorus. Agnes Milne gave a scotch dialect recitation. Zeno Weiss made his debut with his violin during the evening. Beatrice explained the cause of the extra day causing leap 37year in a satisfactory manner. The debate was on the question, “lie- solved, that a high license and a limited number of saloons is better than a dry town.” The affirmative debaters were Men Hush and Mein- hold Klinghammer, the negative Jesse Witty and Robert Brack. Though ihe at I ii illative really had a better argument, the decision was given to the negative. February 2flth an enjovable program was given. Joe Hacked gave a recitation which was highly appreciated. The debate was on the question, “Resolved, that the sword is deadlier than the pen.'’ On the affirmative side Oscar Furgason and Roy Spencer were speakers; nega- tive, llaiold Iiackett and Menial Hug. Ihe judges decided in favor of the negative. We have had seven debates in all. The literary has been a great success and the pupils, as well as the outsiders, attended regularly. Those who came enjoyed the programs and those who participated enjoved it and received benefit from it. We are indebted to the boys and girls who were always willing to sing in a chorus or quartet and to Hazel Hooper and Agnes Milne for their willing service as pianists. Ben Rush and Harold Iiackett could always be depended on in the debates. There has not been a failure in any one of our meetings. The literary society furnish two teams in the triangular debate. At present, there are seventy-one members and they are putting forth every effort to make the organization a better one. Nellie Rish, T2. itsDKR l)i:i TS( 1IE VERKIN On February 20th, the German students got their heads together and decided to organize a German Club. A meeting was called and the following officers were elected: Prasidentin—Edith Galloway. Vice-Prasident Bernal Hug. Sekretarin und Schatzmeisterin—Edith M. Bailey. The meetings were held at the school house evenings after school, and many enjoyable limes were had trying to guess German riddles or listening to Miss Merwin read German stories. There was not much attempted in social way, the only thing was the German party given February 28th at the Knights of Pythias hall Long will some of them remember the German supper and a typical German feed it was. All who survived the ordeal henceforth were considered full-fledged Germans. After supper many games were played. The German spoken at this party was one of the important features of the evening. On account of the arrival of spring and preparations tor commence- ment Der Deutsche Verein was disorganized. We hope that the classes will organize a club earlier than we did and enjoy as many pleasant hours as we have had. Oi.i.iVF. C. McShain, ’12. —39-l«t H mULL IJMi-UI Robert Blumenstein, Captain E. (1.

None of the other High Schools would take us on for a game, except La Grande, and you know La Grande! We had two games with them, the first one played there on October 7th and the return game on the Elgin gridiron, October 21st. 'I he two spoonsful of hitters that La Grande put down our throats were enough to last us for a whole season. We made faces about it and struggled against it with the might and main of eleven stalwart young giants, but the enemy were stronger than we, and in each encounter, after a long evenly matched contest, the La Grande team proved victorious.

Myrtle ('handler was elected captain ol the “Tigers,” while Edith Boyd was elected captain of the “Cubs. The girls immediately got their suits and with Miss Merwin as referee, they commenced to learn and practice. Many interesting games were played with many spectators gathered around the court. But when stormy weather set in. the girls were obliged to give up their -43-practice because they could not find a hall large enough. However, now that spring has set in the captains will get their teams to practicing again and many lively games are anticipated, not only between the two home teams, hilt also with the neighboring towns. The athletic girl is a person whom every one likes, not only because ol her free and easy way, hut because of her physical strength and rosy cheeks, due in part to the exercise.
