Many times she has made some of ns feel ashamed of ourselves for neglecting our work when we see how faithful she is to hers, and that same quality will make of Ludeena a success in whatever she attempts. ELVIE JACKSON As a steady scholar Elvie is un- surpassed. When the class has an "off day" and the teacher is in despair, this quiet girl always speaks up5 and what's more, it seems to us, is always. perfectly right. We will always remember Elvie as one who was at all times willing to help her classmates through troubles and difficulties.

Page twenty 2 IDA LASSITER Literary Society, 1, 23 Athletic Association, 1, 25 Literary Club, 43 D. I. Club, 4. Ida lives up to the standard of E. C. H. S.-'a real girl. She has hosts of friends and "buddies," She is a member of the business class, and when she goes out to be a stenographer or bookkeeper, she'll make a good one. We know she will. WILLIAM MEEKINS Football, 45 Baseball, 45 Basket Ball, 4: Athletic Association, 3, 45 Athletic Club, 4. You can see by William's honors that he is very athletic. He was one of our football stars this year, but, unluckily for both William and the team, his arm was broken before the games were finished. We wish you luck, William! BELLE MILLER Typist, "The Loudspeaker," 4: Athletic Association, 1, 2, 3, 45 Basket Ball Team, 1, 2, 3, 4: Typist, "Spotlight," 45 D. I. Club, 43 Statistics, 4g Class Basket Ball, 1, 2, 3. Although Belle was chosen as being the naughtiest in the class of '27, she has kept well within the bounds of propriety accredited to a dignified Senior. Her ability in athletics is as marked as that she has in business, and both tend to make her popular with her fellow-students. ' EDNA MORRISETTE Athletic Association, 35 Class Basket Ball, 33 Literary Society, 1, 23 Literary-Dramatic Club, 3, 4: Dramatic Club, 5: Associate Editor, "Loudspeaker," 4, 5: Class Prophet, 45 Annual Staff, 5. We are sorry that Edna's illness prevented her from finishing with the class of '26, but we are selfish enough to be glad that she graduated with us. BRUCE OVERMAN Varsity Football, 45 Varsity Base- ball, 45 Dramatic Club, 45 Athletic Club, 4. Bruce is a typical "hail fellow, well met!" He goes through the day smiling and singing, as though he hasn't a care in the world, much to the envy of his less fortunate class- mates who are bowed down with the strenuous duties of school life. While we can't predict an operatic career for Bruce, we do think that he would succeed very well in vaudeville. CECILE PATRICK Glee Club, 2. Cecile is seemingly a quiet, demure girl, but underneath the surface lurks. a large fund of Irish wit and humor. She is a very good pal, generous to a fault, and many E. C. H. S. students are proud to have her as a friend.

T. C., 4. Clara has a very sweet disposition and is liked by all who know her. E. C. H. S. hates to lose Clara, but our loss will be someone else's gain. JULIAN RAPER Associate Editor, "Spotlight," 45 Associate Editor, "The Loud- speaker," 45 Phi Kappa Alpha, 35 Literary Society, 15 Marshal Class, 3. Julian has been a source of envy to many of us because of his wonder- ful knowledge of Latin. It seems to be no harder to him than English. Besides that, he is on the staff of both the "Spotlight" and "Loud- speaker," and has been untiring in his work for them.

Dorothy. sometimes k n o w n as "Dot," is one of that unusual class of people who are always ready to help and never worry whether they will receive credit or praise for helping. Her sincerity and loyalty will surely win for her a place in the world. KEITH SAUNDERS Ediator-in-Chief, "The Loudspeaker," 45 Athletic Association, 3, Literary- Dramatic Club, 35 Advertising Man- ager, "Back-to-School Days" Sale, 43 Elizabethan Players, 4. Keith is a good friend and a pleas- ant companion for one to have. He has chosen Journalism as his life work, and after observing his work done on "The Loudspeaker," we are sure that he will succeed.

Gerald is the kind of a person that everyone likes. He is quiet and de- pendable, and has the true qualities of a real friend. MYRTLE SIMPSON Dramatic Club, 4, The D. I. Club, 4. Nice, quiet and sweet, Myrtle is always ready to help out a friend in any way she can. Her years in E. C. H. S. have not been spectacular ones, yet, she has gone quietly on her way, making friends, and doing her part. SELBY STOKES Athletic Association, 3, 4: Foot- ball, 3, 4g Baseball, 3, 45 Associate Editor, "The Loudspeaker," 4, Vice- President, Athletic Association, 4.

Pearl is the genius. of our class, for she is not only art editor on "The Spotlightn staff hut she is' class poet as well, and has done credit to her- self as both. Some day we'll be more than proud to boast that we graduated in the same class with her. MILDRED TATUM Athletic Association, lg D. I. Club, 4. Mildred is a quiet, sincere, and energetic girl, who does her work with a will. Regardless of the weather she is always here in spite of the fact that she lives outside the city limits. She is always in a good humor and easy to get along with. She will be missed when she leaves E. C. H. S. 1 I .s 'YK -.2 GERTRUDE TEMPLEMAN Class President, 25 Glee Club, 2, 3, 45 Phi Kappa Alpha, 33 Class Historian, 43 Associate Editor, "The Loudspeaker," 4. Gertrude is the model of our class. VVe would all be better off if we patterned after her. She never does anything rash as some of the more thoughtless of us, but goes serenely from one day to another. VIVIEN TURNER Advertising Committee, "Spotlight," 4: Athletic Association, 1, 2g Class Basket Ball, 1g Phi Kappa Alpha, 3. Vivien has a most likeable and "fetching" smile, which always brightens up a dark and dreary day. She is unseltish and has a fun-loving disposition. "Viv" is a good student and a loyal friend. NVe hope life will smile on her as she smiles on others. . t 3, if 1 GLADYS TILLETT In various activities Gladys is not the kind who likes to put herself be- fore the public. However, those who know her have found that beneath her outward reserve she is full of friendliness and humor. Gladys is in the business class, and if what we hear about her is true, we are sure that later on she will make her place in the world of bus- mess.

Page twenty-six SENIOR HISTORY GW has come the time when we must leave our high school for a larger place in life. Some of us will continue our studies and some will take up positions in the great world of business. How long it seemed as we looked ahead, and yet, as we look back, how short a time it has been since we entered upon our high school career as Freshmen. The first weeks were busy ones in which we tried to adapt ourselves to our new surroundings. The Sophomores, with true class spirit, loved to lord it over us and make our lives miserable. They took every opportunity to show us how insignificant and green we appeared to them. But there is an end to everything and when the novelty wore off we were left in peace. The officers elected for that year were: Tyer Sawyer, President: Alma Mann, Vice- Presidentg Wesley Sheep, Secretary: and Mahlon Raper, Treasurer. We chose as our colors, White and Gold: and as our flower, the Daisy. The motto adopted to be used through high school was, "VVe learn to do by doing." One of the most important events of that year, to the Freshman class at least, was the party given us on November 16 at the Red Men's Hall by the Sophomores. Our first school party! Of course we all went and had a good time. The new high school building was finished by the first of the year and we proudly took possession on January 2, the first Freshman class to enter. Mid-term examinations safely over, we entered with more confidence upon our sec- ond term as members of the student body of the Elizabeth City High School. We returned the party of the Sophomores. Our class did not furnish many stars for the Literary Society that year, but we took our part in the field of Athletics, having one of our number on the football squad and one on the Girls' Basket Ball Team. Final examinations marked the close of an eventful year and we turned our attention toward higher things. After three months of rest and play we again took up our work in school. This time we entered as Sophomores. Of course we knew it all! VVhat Sophomore doesn't? And if we didn't, the Freshmen were led to believe we didg which was as it should be. Patterning after the preceding classes, we took great delight in giving the Freshmen a cordial CFD welcome. Soon, however, our studies laid claim to most of our time. 'We elected as our officers for that year: Gertrude Templeman, President: Robert Williams, Vice-Presidentg and Isadore Farrow, Secretary-Treasurer. We entertained the Freshman class with a party which they returned after Christmas. In May of that year we had a class picnic at Chantilly which we greatly enjoyed. Page twenty-seven Mid-term and final examinations passed and we began to look forward to the time when we would be Juniors. Our Junior year was one which we will always remember. Another step upward to- ward the high estate of a Senior and to the goal for which we were working. The officers elected for that year were: Mahlon Raper, President: Julian Guard, Vice- President: and John Kramer, Secretary-Treasurer. Gu February 26 we entertained the Seniors with a party which they returned in the spring by a delightful picnic at Chantilly. Then came the all-absorbing task of selecting our class rings. After much considera- tion, we selected one which we think the prettiest ever had by any class. That year we took our placd in dramatics, as well as in athletics. We also were re- presented in the Triangular Debate. And now we were nearing the beginning of our last year in high school. How proud we were to enter again the familiar halls, this time as "dignified t?J Seniors." We chose as our officers, to represent us in this last year: John Kramer, President, Tyer Sawyer, Vice-President: and Flora Griggs, Secretary-Treasurer. This year the Senior class has worked hard to make our school paper, "Thc Loud- .vpval2v1',"' a success. We increased the size of the paper and have tried to set as a goal for those who take up the work where we leave it, the state championship in school newspaper work. The usual class parties were exchanged between the Junior and Senior classes. This year we have among our number those who have starred both in athletics and in the realm of drama. As the curtain goes down upon this. our last year in high school and the places we leave vacant are filled by others. the Class of '27 wishes to be remembered as having done cheerfully the tasks assigned to it and as having come through with flying' colors. To whatever heights we may climb in later life, we shall always look back with affection upon our high school days as the happiest and best of our lives and upon E. C. H. S. as our beloved Alma Mater. May she ever prosper and attain even greater success in the future than she has in the past. Hzlrtorifizz-GERTRUDE TEMPLEMAN. Page twenty-eight PROPHECY OF CLASS OF '27 N 1952 I was delivering a series of lectures on "How To Eat and Grow Thin," in my old home town. l was very tired, both mentally and physically. I decided to take a night off and go to the moving pictures. The first theater I came to I stopped and looked at the sign board. Imagine my surprise when I saw in big letters, SECOND RUDOLPH VALENTINO-TYER SAVVYER with N.-XOMI JACKSON, in "THE GRANDSON OF THE SHElK." Thrt settled it. Of course I was going to see my old classmates play. I walked up to the ticket office to buy my ticket, and who should be there but my old friend, Edna Sanderlin, talking as usual. Edna seemed very glad to see me. She told me that Andrew Bailey was the sole owner and operator of the theater. l always knew "Zip" would amount to something in the dramatic world. I asked her if she knew anything about any of the rest of our class. She told me that Ruth Scott was now business manager of The .-ldtiurzcr. So "Chick" had finally succeeded in news- paper work. I knew she could do it for I remembered how hard she used to work when we were in school together. l was also told that Robert VVilliams was now Dr. R. Williams and had taken for his life companion, his schoolmate, Lillian Boyce. My old friend, Gerald Shannonhouse, who had been so bashful, in his high school days, had at last gotten up enough courage to ask Margaret Fearing to be his wife. Gerald was also owner of the biggest grocery store in town. I was blocking up the ticket office: so I went on in the theater. I got in just in time to see Tyer in the midst of making love to Naomi. Tyer had gotten some of that practice in school, I knew. The picture was soon over and I watched with interest the advertisements, hoping to see some more of my classmates. Yes, there was an advertisement from "Miladie's Shop," Beauty Parlor-Myrtle Simpson, proprietor. Next I saw VVest Cleaning VVorks -Claude West, proprietor. It did me good to see what a success some of my class- mates had made. The next thing they had was the vaudeville. The first thing on the program was a song and dance act by Charles Hollowell and Bruce Overman. The chief selection was "Bye, Bye Blackbird." I saw that at last "Snoozie" and Bruce had acquired per- fection on that song. The next thing on the program was a solo dance by Miss Floria Griggsky who was none other than my friend Flora Griggs. Her graceful dancing astonished me. l'age twenty-nine The next feature and the last o11e on the program was a Spanish Fantango by Ger- trude Templeman and Oscar Meiggs. VVell, I saw that Gertrude had changed her ambition somewhat from being a missionary to Africa. The dance was very graceful and thrilling. The lights went off and the Fox News began. The first thing I saw was- ".Vczv York, N. Y. Francis G. Jacocks, Jr., elected head of photographing staff of the celebrated Fox News amid great cheering." Next, who should I see but the smiling face of my old classmate, Kate Hall. She had been captured by the Chicago Chief of Police, Blackwell Barkley, for her daring holdup, of a mail truck. I saw that Katq was still up to her old tricks of golddigging but in a more daring manner. "Dozer, England. Miss Ruth Dozier landed here late this afternoon after her record- breaking swim of the English Channel. She made the trip in five hours and fifty-nine minutes." I saw that Ruth was still prominent in athletics, as in the old high school days. "IVaslzingtou, II. C. Miss Margaret Wells, beautiful private secretary to United States President Julian Guard, was today presented with a gold medal for bravery, which she won by saving Mrs. Guard's, nee Mildred Tatum, beautiful Persian cat from drowning in the goldfish pond."

"Tarryfowiz-011-tile-Hudson, N. Y. A new coach has been selected for athletics for Miss Castle's school here. The person selected was Miss Belle Miller, former student of Miss Castle. She played a prominent part in athletics and much is expected from this school in the coming contest between Vassar and Miss Castles school." "New York, N. Y. Mr. John A. Kramer, president of the Commercial Bank of New York is shown here presenting the International Short Story prize to Miss Edna Morrisette, an American short story writer." "Boston, Mass. This is the first picture taken of the Price Female Symphony Or- chestra. It is directed by Miss Ruth Price and has won fame on its tour through Can- ada. Miss Nannie Harrell, the drummer. seated at lower right, won the admiration of Attorney-Governor of Canada by her ability." Page thirty-one "ll'z1s1zi11gfm1, 17. C.

She is shown here as she rode into VVashington." The lights flashed on again and it seemed almost as if l had heen dreaming. My old classmates had done well for themselves and l was glad to know it. l left the theater and went to my rooms, hut I didn't continue my work that night as my mind was too full of memories.

The Senior marks the end lVith eager look and shining eyes, .4 new aliplom-a in his hand For he at last has earned his prize. The enrtain falls down and the lights flash on .-Ind ont from their selzool they must go,' For the time has Come, and the battle's begun And life in the world they must know. -PEARL SKILES Page thirty six v f fv- JUNIOR CLASS Flower . , ,77 , White Rose Colors ,,,,,., ,,,y . . ,.., ,,,.7,,,A,.

TTTE RHRY THE STRA NGER NAP out of it, you musical bum!" A tall boy with sallow skin, slick black hair, and a wry expression. paid no attention to the saucy little cashier who pretended to dislike his whistling. He finished his tune and having hastily drunk a soda he hurried down the tile floor to "catch the order." Returning from a customer, who was seated at a table, he nonchalantly but quickly prepared a highly tlavored sundae. "If you don't like my whistling, Sue, suppose you drop around to the old dance hall tonight and listen to me kill a saxophone. l don't mind taking you along. Of course, I won't be able to dance with you, but I know several boys whom I'll knock you down to. What do you say?" Sue Ralston, the pretty cashier, hastily agreed. "Frank O'Brien, you're a darling, and you whistle adorably. I suppose I can stand your company for one evening." Frank O'Brien worked in the busy Triangle Pharmacy in the daytime, and at night he played with "Red Randa1l's Red Hot Ramblers." Frank, an orphan who had lived with his aunt ever since he could remember, had been obliged to leave school at fourteen to earn a living. For four years he had worked in the drug store, and during this time he had saved enough money to buy himself a fairly good saxophone. As he was talentl ed, it was not long before he was able to secure a position with the Ramblers, a mediocre orchestra which played in a dance club in the bright light district. of the city. Frank had his heart set on a beautiful gold-plated alto saxophone, which reposed in the show case of a nearby music shop. The price was one hundred and eighty dollars and one hundred and fifty dollars of this was already to his credit in the bank. When he should have secured this long-desired instrument, an attempt for a position in a better orchestra would follow. At half-past eight that night Frank stepped out of a taxi and entered Sue's flat. She was ready, and in a few minutes the taxi arrived at the club. Frank, after seeing that she would have a pleasant evening, took his place in the orchestra. Soon, the orchestra literally warmed up, although it was a cool evening in late fall, and the dancers shuffled, swayed, and glided to the rhythm of gay music. Frank did not envy the fellow who passed by the orchestra leading Sue in a merry fox-trot, because he really enjoyed playing. Two o'clock, the dance was over: Sue had been taken homeg and now the taxi neared the dwelling house of Frank's aunt. As he went up the doorsteps, he stumbled and fell over a limp body. Startled, he looked to see what it was. VVitl1 a sobbing groan, the figure of a young man with wide staring eyes and a face possessed by a tiendish grin, rose from the steps, stood for an instant trembling, and with a horrible laugh, fell forward, unconscious. into Frank's arms. "Whew," shivered Frank. He couldn't leave the man outside all night, and yet he was doubtful about taking him in. The fellow needed a doctor. That was a certainty, but surely it wasn't his duty to pay a doctor's bill for someone he didn't know and whom he had never seen before. Page seventy-two He half lifted, half dragged the inert body into his room. A search of the stranger's pockets revealed no papers of identification or even any money. Observing the unconscious ma11's regular breathing, Frank decided to give up his bed to him and sleep on the floor that night. He decided this, however, only after his strc- nuous efforts to revive the man by dashing water on his face and by fanning him with a newspaper had failed. He couldn't even guess what was wrong as he smelt no liquor on the young man's breath, and he sincerely hoped that morning would find matters somewhat cleared up. He undressed the man with much difficulty and put him to bed. He then laid him- self down to sleep. The hard floor did not hasten the arrival of slumber, but at last he dozed into unconsciousness. Frank awoke with a start. A gurgling sound came to his ears. The water spigot was running, and he got up to turn it off. In the dark room lightened by a dim street light, which shone through the window, he could see but indistinctly. There sat the strange man in the corner by the wash basin, propped against the wall, his eyes closed, and his ghastly pale face relaxed into an expression of con- tentment. Beside him lay a small glass syringe, such as is used in administering hypo- dermics. Frank began to see it all clearly: this man was a drug addict or one who is known as a 'ldope fiendf, He searched his clothes. this time more carefully, and in a small secret pocket in the trousers he found a pill box which contained a few very small white tablets. From his experience as a drug clerk he knew these were morphine tablets. A hundred dollars in bills was also found in another secret pocket. He phoned Dr. Thomas Wilsoii, a young practioner, whom he had seen many times in the Triangle Pharmacy, and soon the doctor arrived. The young man was examined. "This fellow will have to be taken to a sanatorium. A month's treatment by com- petent physicians will most likely bring about a cure. Since he is in fairly good condi- tion, excepting, of course, this habit, l should think that he would be almost a normal person by that time." Said Frank doubtfully, 'tBut he only has a hundred dollars. That won't cover the expenses, will it P" "Yes," replied the doctor. "It will. The place I am thinking of is quite reasonable in its charges. I'll get this poor wretch in, anyway." As they stood talking, planning the re-creation of a man they did not know, the figure in the corner stirred, and unseen by the two, crept up back of them and clutched at Frank's neck. A struggle ensued until, finally, the half-crazed man was tied up with some bed sheets. With much difficulty their prisoner was placed in the doctor's coupe. All the way to the sanatorium, which was about three miles outside the city, the poor fellow feverishly apologized, and. as Frank knew nothing else to do, he readily pardoned him. Frank arrived at work that morning late, and after receiving a few cross words from the proprietor of the pharmacy, he proceeded to tell Sue all about the night's adventure. "And weren't you afraid when he started to choke you?" gasped Sue. Frank laughed, "You bet I was. We took him to the sanatorium, and Doctor Wilson says he will be all right in a month. I'll surely be glad." Page seventy-three Two weeks passed uneventfully, but one day Doctor -Wilson came into the pharmacy. "I hear our patient is not getting along so well. The doctors say that a very expensive treatment is required in this case. VVe'll wait a week, and if he gets no better we'll have to give the special treatment. The Lord only knows where the necessary one hundred and fifty dollars is coming from." All that day the sum, one hundred and fifty dollars, oppressed Frank's mind. Where was it coming from? Surely. Doctor Wilson, a struggling young doctor with many charity patients, couldn't pay it. Sue was consulted. "Are you crazy? Nobody has any strings on you. VVhy should you pay the expenses and be the goat? Besides, what about that saxophone? This guy will probably be cured without this treatment. Ain't I right?" Frank half-heartedly agreed, knowing all the time that Sue was wrong. He didn't sleep much that night, but when he awoke the next morning there was a resolve in his heart to have nothing more to do with the sick man. Let the sanatorium folks keep him. They could hardly throwt him out. That resolve lasted until exactly one week later. The doctor came into the store again, and by the look on his face Frank knew the patient was no better. He found himself saying: "Doctor, I think I could dig up one hundred and fifty dollars for our friend's treat- ment." He gulped and continued, "The poor fellow needs it a whole lot more than I do, and I certainly would like to see him a normal man. I'll make out a check to the sanatorium, and you see that he gets a square deal." After much protesting the doctor took the check. "I am pretty much in debt." he con- fessed, "or else I would pay half. I don't think you'll ever be sorry you did this." Three weeks later. Frank visited the sanatorium. He learned that the young man. having been cured, had left, leaving no information about himself except his name, Samuel Sachowisky. Christmas Eve found Frank and Sue in a popular cafe, which advertised an engage- ment of "Sam Stratford's Serenadersf' This was a newly organized orchestra of Strat- ford, a well known musician. Stratford had not been before the eyes of the public for six months. According to the newspapers he had decided to stop playing only to be called back to his old profession by an irresistible yearning for music. Frank wondered what he had been doing during the six months. Hardly had they been seated before Frank startled Sue by grabbing her hand and jabbering excitedly, "See that pianist? I betcha a million dollars he's the same one. He's the fellow who was in my room that nightp and he's the leader of the orchestra, Sam Stratford. He must have taken a different name, and I don't know as I blame him." An intermission in the dancing came, and Frank confronted Stratford in a smoking room nearby. "Who in the world are you?" asked the orchestra leader as Frank tried to shake his hand. 'iSurely, you know me," said Frank impatiently. "It was my room you slept in that night." Page seventy-four "Are you crazy?" muttered Stratford. "l've never seen you before." Visions of the one hundred and fifty dollars and an unbought saxophone came before Frank's eyes and turned to red. He hit Stratford and a fight began. This was no weak "doper" that he was up against. Efforts by grinning onlookers to part them were useless. They fought silently but fiercely for several minutes, exchanging strong blows. Stratford, with a queer expression on his face, told Frank to stop lighting. "Are you, by any ehanee, the fellow who paid my bill in the sanatorium?" Frank agreed, vehemently. "Come over here in this corner where we can talk privately. You see, the doctors didn't know your name. I surely don't remember ever having seen you but that can be explained by the induenee of that damned drug. Thank goodness, I'm cured." They shook hands and were soon engaged in friendly conversation. They started to- ward the orchestra platform. "You're sure a hundred a week is sufficient?" he asked Frank. "If you don't want to start another fight, you'd better not joke me," laughed Frank. "All right," said Stratford. "Just to prove l really mean what I say Tm gonna get you to play with us the rest of the evening. I have an extra instrument you can use." "I'll be ready in a minute," shouted Frank, as he ran to tell Sue about the new turn of affairs. ROBERT XNILLIAMS, '27. Page seventy-live A UMALICIOUSN CHRISTMAS TREE UNT Mandy had just finished the last stitch on Liza Jane Arabella Helen's new dress. Aunt Mandy gave the dress many admiring glances that evening as she finished putting the last beautiful things on that wonderful tree. "XVell sah! no one nebber seen ara Cristmas trees out'n umbrella in my time," said Aunt Mandy, "but dem chillums am bound to hab sumpin to hang dey praisents on, and dat sho' am a malicious tree." She stood with her hands on her hips and looked at the frame of an old umbrella spreading its bare ribs above an old empty soap box on which it had been rudely fastened by a large safety pi11. Strings of nine-day old popcorn and cranberries were the principal decorations but there were also some cookies, apples, sticks of candy, and mysterious looking bundles of many shapes and sizes. Aunt Mandy left the room, with a look of satisfaction on her face, saying, "Clar' to goodness, hit do look mighty scrumptious: deed hit do!" After supper was over the best room was opened for the Christmas tree to be exposed. As the door was opened Uncle Nlose led the way and four delighted pickaninnies fol- lowed. "Chillur1s," said Uncle Mose, "Yo' sho' am got a scrumptious Cristmas tree to cele- brate yo' Cristmas day. An' I will recede to constribute yo' praisents. "Fust, foahmos, an' to begin wid, I puhsent yo', George VVashington Lincoln Har- rison Grant, wid' a pair of new pants, from yo' lubbin' mammy. "And yo'. Rastus Robinson Carter Keller, gits a football from yo' 'fectionate daddy. "Liza jane Arebella Helen, git right up on yo' feet and mak' yo bow.

"Now, Maria Katherine -Wallace Shakespear, what yo' gwine to sa' when yo' 'cepts dis beautiful bonnet from yo' maminy, de work ob her inobsent an' lubbin' hands? "Now chilluns," continued he, "yo' can walk right up an' hope yo' selves: de 'fresh- ments am free an' malicious." The "chilluns" did walk right up and help themselves, and to their great surprise and delight they found more presents on that wonderful tree. But in the meanwhile Uncle Mose could be seen with Aunt Mandy, making love to her and telling her what a wonderful Christmas Spirit she had. Christmas cheer was stirring in Uncle Mose's heart and Christmas angels were hovering over that little log cabin. At twelve o'clock the lights were blown out and four little black faces smiled up from the soft white pillows, for their dreams were sweet that Christmas night. Aunt Mandy felt well repaid for the extra troubles, and Uncle Mose. wearied from his speech-making, soon fell asleep. Both had seen the real Christmas Spirit. AUGUSTA WALKER, '30. Page seventy-six S.

Page seventy-eight "THE SUB" HE following pupils will represent the school in basket ball," so read the an- nouncement on the bulletin board: "Jane Smith, Ruth Cameron, Belle Store, Rebecca Cox, Dot Harding, Margaret Trueyl substitutes: Shirley Martin, Mary Grant." As Shirley Martin read this announcement on the bulletin board, a wave of resent- ment swept over her. She hadn't made the team. She-Shirley Martin-hadn't made the team. "Well," said Shirley to her chum, Margaret Truey. "I did the best I could, and l'll do it even as a sub." "Oh, that's all any one could ask," smiled Margaret, or more commonly known as "Pug." Shirley walked home in a daze. To think, after' weeks of training and hard practice, she was only a sub. ' "But what more did I expect?" she thought. Yet she knew she had expected more. Shirley's mind was far from her studies: the words, "Only a sub," kept flashing be- fore her eyes. Shirley Martin was a senior of Briar High School. Her highest ambition was to win the cherished letter She was a person who possessed a desire to stick to the end of a thing. "I won't go out any more," she said to herself. Yet that desire to see a thing through cau'sed her to practice every day. During the season six games were played. Shirley's chance to play' had not come. "But it will," said Pug one afternoon, after strenuous practice with Shirley. The first championship game was to be played February sixteenth with Smith High at Briar High. Smith High was the school's closest rival. On the night of the game, Shirley dressed without her usual exultant spirit. As she started to get her socks, she remembered she had left them in the locker at school. Pug and Dot Harding stopped for Shirley on the way to the game. "How is the star?" laughingly remarked Dot. "Just fine," sniffed back Shirley, disdainfully. "You two come on. We haven't too much time now," called Pug. Shirley, immediately upon reaching the school, ran to the dressing room for her socks. As she went in, she heard someone say: "Don twisted her wrist when she got out of the car. She is going to try to play any- way. If Briar players find it out, our chances for this game are doomed. You know just what school spirit they have. any way: you remember that VVest Haven game: why you know what they said about"-the voice died down. Shirley stopped short. Donawhy that was Smith's star guard. VVithout her Smith had a good chance to lose. -What if the guard should give that wrist a light strain? Shirley pushed the thought away quickly, grabbed her socks and left without being dis- covered by the visiting team. Page seventy-nine The whistle blew. Two figures jumped for the ball at center. A streak of blue and white-then the ball Hashed in the basket: two points for Smith. The ball went up again at center. Harding of Briar High and Don of Smith seized the ball. "Jump ball," called the referee. In the second quarter, Dot Harding and a Smith guard collided. Dot's face went white with pain. Shirley's heart sank as she saw this. She knew only too well what was the trouble. "Her ankle has failed her again," groaned the coach. "Martin, go in for Harding." Shirley ran in, after reporting to the score keeper. Don guarded her. The whistle blew. Play started again. Up and down the court went the ball. Shir- ley received the ball, tried for a goal and failed. Her next attempt was more successful. "I've got to make it," she said to herself as she threw the ball. The ball went in. At the third quarter the score stood 16-15 for Smith. At the tip-off, Shirley and Don seized the ball. It would be simple for Shirley to give Don's wrist a little tweak that would put Don out of the game. "I can't do it: I can't," she said when she felt herslf moving to do it. "I won't win a game that way," . Time after time, Shirley tried to lead herself to get Don out. It would mean honor for herself, provided no one saw her: perhaps victory for the team. "Jump ball," called the referee. At the toss-up, Shirley, by a quick pass to Briar's right forward, had the satisfaction of knowing that Brirr High had two more points: Smith continued to lead by one point. "I must do it: I must. It's our only CIIHIICC to win!" she cried' to herself. But some- thing held her back. Don fell to the floor. Shirley tripped and fell beside her. Only two inches between that sprained wrist of Don's and her own. She reached over, touched Don's sprained wrist, and surprised herself by saying: "Did I hurt your wrist when I fell?" Don, surprised, said, "Nog but how did you know it was hurt F" Shirley didn't have time to answer. A fierce struggle of delight went on within her. She knew that her struggle for fair play over trickery had won. The final whistle blew. Smith hyd won-score 26-25. Immediately after the game. Coach Philips called the team together and said: "All played well tonight, but one player was playing in two fights. The fighting spirit and honor of one player should be taken as an example byv all. Perhaps you don't un- derstand why I say that, and as a clue I wish to add, that the star guard of the Smith team had a sprained wrist. Since you know who was playing opposite her, I'll leave the rest to you. "The first person to receive a letter will be Shirley Martin." -HELEN WILKINS, '28, Page eighty ' Q .,' 'w - I C' L ,,-.. ,. , 1 IMX.- I . . ,f x. ,.. , G U? rk0iNf3LHAm, Aff. , ' ,.-'I - 'w f- wg X .I ,.

TVe have our vampires and our ingenues,' And our girls in their time play many parts, Their types being seven lrinds. At first the athlete, Running and jumping in the high school gym, ,flnrl the social butterfly, with her dorine And lozc' soft voice, 'wallring like a queen Ifaughtily to school. And then the beauty Lovely as a rose, szcvzying in the lireeze Of a 'warm spring day. Then a flapper Full of vibrant life, and painted lilfe a doll Jealous in love, .sudden and quiclf in anger Seeking the bubble popularity. .ind then the dramatist In all plays, with such pretty costumes With eye serene and voice so wondrous clearg Graceful as a 'weeping willow tree And so she plays her part. The sixth type shifts Into the quiet studious maiden here lfVith spectacles on nose, and pen by side, Her open book, well-worn by too much thumbing And a frequent use. Last scene of all That ends these odd familiar types Is "Baby-face" who lisps and whines, Who will not lift a finger if a man Is near to lift it for her little self. Thus ends this parodyg may heaven save My soul, if Willie haunts me from his grave. -EDNA INIORRISSETTE. Page ninety-thrcc Page ninety-four ,f ' I f f f if f X ff I f XX .

Williams is editor-in-V chief of the school annual, "Thel Spotlight," of which Kramer ist business manager.

Kramer is president of his class, has won his letter in base- ball thisl spring, and has also tak- en part in dramatic work. The class of 1927 is an unusual one for the local high school to turn out. Ordinarily the scholar- ship, honors go to the girls, but, this year the boys have had things f their own way. Among the live? highest averages for the year, there are four boys and one girl. .
