SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
Histories are an unnecessary evil, historically. If any one were
really desirous of knowing exactly what year the class of '14 entered,
they could readily go through the simple mental process of substracting
four from fourteen and find that at least a majority of the class entered
in 1910. Taking it for granted that any questions of importance can be
figured out by the reader, this history will deal more closely with the
distinguishing features of the class. Lest this be misunderstood, t'Dis-
tinguislhing features," does not refer to Red's hair, Bink's height, :nor
N ewman's grin, but rather to the accomplishments and doings in general
of the class of '14.
However, it must be noted here that the claiss of '14, has gone through
High School in much the same manner as dozens of other classes that
have preceded it. In giving a class history one naturally expects an
account of the Freshman entering in the Fall, becoming acquainted, enter-
ing the second year as Sophomores, etc. The class of '14 did all these
"bromidic" stunts. Add to them some of the stunts, might I ever say
feats, mentioned below, and you will have a fair estimate of the clever
ingenuity of this most extraordinary class.
Once upon a time on the most beautiful Autumn day of the year,
one hundred and twenty young things entered a realm of terror-their
Freshman year at Enid High.
For as much as two weeks these children had looked forward with
dubiousness to this dreaded departure from pleasant duties. Those who
had eldersisters or brothers thought themselves lucky until they got to
school, then their peace of mind was disturbed by such titles as "Jake,s
little brother," f'Red'ls little sister" etc. It took some time for their
verdure to wear off and for them to refrain from mad stampedes office-
ward at the hint of chapel tickets.
But such a collection of charming personalities could not long re-
main in the capacity of second fiddlers. They came to the front in a few
weeks and all were forced to concede that this class was the leading
spirit of E H. S.
I SOME CLASS ACHIEVEIVIENTS.
The first achievement of the class of 1914 was attained when Miss
Josephine Scarff in an interclass oratorical contest came out victorious
and received a gold medal for her achievement. Another great distinc-
tion came to this Class in 1913, when five, of the six interscholastic de-
baters, were chosen from the class of '14, Such minor achievements as
the star football and baseball players from the class of '14, are too numer-
Dus to mention.
In the Class of '14 are to be foulnd the most talented people of
the young set. Miss Herzberg, who expects to study in Boston next
year is a soprano of rare ability, and Milss Hatch, a contralto, ls unex-
celled in the state. Miss Scarlf is a star in dramatic art. Add to these
such a thinker as Milss Henson, such an actor as Mr. Mosig,-it baffles
all estimation of ability.
Considering this most wonderful, remarkable personel of the Class
of '14 is it any 'wonder that it has taken E. H. S. by storm, has exercised
inestimable originality in all undertakings-has gone through its four
years with flying colorls-and now passes the goal, leading in numbers,
achievements and ability-like thorough-breds.
E. H. S. in graduating the Class of ,14 turns out the largest, the best
looking-the strongest-the briglhtest--the noblest-the best Class, that
has ever graced the beautiful high school building.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: The last will and testament of
the late class of '14. We, the Senior class of '14, in view of our an-
ticipated yet imtimely departure, do hereby take this opportunity of mak-
ing a few bequests for the disposal of some of our most valuables.
Qlj Our experience, long battled for, that for the obtaining of which,
we have suffered untold agonies, that which in some instances has come
upon us at the most inopportune moments of unreadiness, that for which
we fought apposed by all-in a most generous turn of mind we turn
over, intact, to the class of '18 that they may be saved these difficulties.
Q25 The blinding sunlight afforded by the two large windows on the
back of the chapel platform, we leave to those unfortunates 'wno will oc-
cupy the first five rows in the middle tier, during the year 1915.
Q39 The Skull that in the laboratory now dwells, we freely give to
Q43 The sole right of discussion over questions of class importance,
now held by Beatrice Jones and Clara Walter, we bequeath to Sarah
Godschalk and Retta Barge, respectively. This bequest is to be regarded
reverently and not to be overtaxed. It should only be used in such ques-
tions of importance as the entertainment for a -liunior Senior Reception or
any question of similar weight.
Q53 The general management of the High School we are forced
to grant to Douglas Cullison, hoping he will exercise his authority to a
better advantage than he has his lack of authority.
Q65 The power of debate confined to the fourth hour American his-
tory class, we leave to our worthy instructor, Miss Crawford, to deal with
as she shall judge the best.
5 7 J We realize that several important bequests have been omitted,
for many of such we have snot decided upon the most proper recipient.
However, one so important as our knowledge we cannot pass without
mention. Badly as we knew it is needed in the High School, 'We feel it is
entirely to massive to leave in that instution, so We shall leave our knowl-
edge to that most charitable institution located just north east of the
Q81 We had almost failed to mention that We especially desire to
wish upon the Juniors the close supervision of the faculty in the halls
during lunch hours.
Together with each object left we must of necessity add one re-
quisite, that We expect all these things to be given the strict and tender
care they have received at our hands.
SIGNED: Senior class of '14.
This 30th day of May.
In this year of our Lord, 1914.
TO THE FACULTY.
Only a fleeting glimpse of sung
Then, a passing cloud does stray,
Across our limpid horizon
As We pass along the Way.
Only a Weary smile does play
Upon the lips of those today,
That soon will turn to othersg
As We pass along the Way.
Only a mournful shadow,
Which turns the noontime gray,
Upon thin learned vowvs,
As We pass along the way.
And then the sun is brilliant,
For they've made us, so We may
Do the best for others,
As We palss along he way.

'tLittle Freshman, are you lost?"
"Why you could tell he is a Freshie by the way he acts."
These and similar remarks greeted about one hundred thirty Fresh-
men on a bright morning in September, 1911, as they gathered at the
Lincoln Building to begin their career as high school students. However
they managed to live through this and at a meeting, called by Mr. Bailey,
they elected the following officers:
Douglas Cullison ...1 ...11.... P resident
Sarah Godschalk .... .111 V ice President
Harold Balch .,... 1.,..,, S ecretary
Winona Evans--- ---------------- Treasurer
The class of '15 duly felt the honor of having a representative of the
class, Harold Butler, on the foot-ball team, and the Freshman further
distinguieshed themselves that year by winning the class championship in
football. Something very unusual for the Freshmen and a feat that has
not been accomplished since.
When the school moved to the new building some of the greenness
had worn oi a'nd the Freshmen were just as anxious to give their yell-
"Hail, Mud, Sleet, Rain,
Get out of the way of the aeroplane
in chapel, as the upper classmen were to give theirs.
Along about this time the Freshmen initiated a new project in the
School, that of writing a booklet. The result of the efforts of the class
was "The Novel Novel." The live chapters were written bv Rochester
Hopley, Faye Orelup, Claire Kenefick, Catherine Hulbbel and Sarah Gods-
chalk. The proceeds from the sale of this book were used to buy slides
from "The Merchant of Venice" so that the Freshmen who had been
studying that play might understand it better.
Following the custom of preceding Sophomore classes the class of
'15 published a paper known as the "Sophomore,', which made its first
appearance on Tuesday, March 19. This enterprise was successful.
In debate the Sophomores were represented by Mr. Meinhardt and
Mr. Burt, both of whom made the first team.
The Sophomores had their annual picnic and their annual drenching
before they reached home. This Year, however, they came all the way
home in the pouring rain.
The literary talent of the clasis of '15 was also displayed by its being
able to win in the English Flag Contest and it 'has been able to keep it
each succeeding year.
Of counse the school year could not close without a picnic and this
the Freshmen and Sophomores had together. They 'went to the J ungles
with the expectation of a fine time, and a fine time they lhad, 'but alas-3
as is the case, sometimes, the sky clouded up and got black and it began
to rain. Seeiing it was impossible to return to Enid in the hayracks the
picnickers went to Carrier and came home on the train.
A few weeks later school closed and the class of '15 left green
cloakas and the name of Freshman for the class that was to follow.
At the beginning of school the next year the class of '15 returned
having acquired the proverbial strut of learned Sophomores. At the
first chapel of the year the yell,
boomed out across the chapel frightening the poor Freshmen almost ilnto
On the second Monday of school the class assembled and elected the
Sarah Godschalkh -- ..,......-. President
Doyle Cotton ...... ..... . --Vice President
Helen Blakeslee ...s.,.. Secretary Treasurer
Again the boys of the class won the class championship in foot-ball.
In basket ball the girls won second place in the race for the cup.
After ra vacation of three months the class returned to work, full of
enthusiasm and renewed vigor. This was the first year as ulpperclass-
men and, on the part of most of the clasis, had been looked forward to
from the time of entering high school.
The following officers were elected!
Henry Bass ..... - ........ ...... P resident
William Kornbaum ..... ---Vice President
Winona Evans --... ----- S ecretary
Carl Ford ------- .-.- T reasurer
When it came time to distribute the "E's" it was learned that five
Juniors were allowed the privilege of wearing them. In 'class football
the championship was lost but the playens were awarded class numerals.
Luck changed, however. when it came to basket ball. The boys won
the championship from the Seniors in one ot' the fastest class games ever
played in E. H. S. The girl's series of basket ball has not been finished,
yet lthey have a good chance of winning. It has been said they have the
When it was learned that three of the teachers, Miss Hansen, Miss
Keimptofn and Mr. Waller, were to leave after the second quarter, the
Juniors and Seniors to show their appreciation of what these instruc-
tors had done for the school and for their classes. especially. gave a
farewell party for them in the gym. Miss Hansen was presented with
a silver mesh bag, Miss Kempton, with a cut glass vase and Mr. Waller
with an umbrella.
At the close of the second ouarter the Juniors were still ahead in
the Flag Contest and are still bidding high for it.
The Juniors were represented again in debate by Mr. Meinhardt and
Mr. Burt. ,
The Juniors had the Royal Theater on Friday, March 7. Special
nf-usic was furnished by the 'High School Orchestra, a, Violin Solo by
Frederick Clayborne and a Vocal Solo by Walter Stevenson. It was a
grand success as is everything else undertaken by the Junior Class.
On March 17, Saint Patrick's Day. the Juniors pulled off a stunt,
Decorating themselves with large orange bows they formed in line
and marched into Chapel and around to their places. The procession
was led by Mr. Morton keeping time on a snare drum.
"The Senior's time is nearly run,
Next year welll put on airs
And, departing, leave behind us
Foot-prints just as big as theirs,"
I n September, nineteen hundred and twelve, one hundred and eighty-
five industrious boys and girls, known, as Freshman enrolled in the Elnid
High School. Green T? Yes, to some extent, but they soon overcame this.
This class was very active and desirous to learn, which is shown by their
interest in athletics and other school work.
A meeting for the organization of the class was held on September
28th. Percy Porter was chosen President, James Garnett Vice-President,
Francis Byerly Secretary and Ava Cameron Treasurer. The progress
of the class shows that these officers were efficient.
The first real interesting event was the class fight. The Sophomores
were slow and the Juniors and Seniors were stiff with old age, so the
Freshman won with little effort.
Next came the football and basketball games. The Freshman girls
won second place and the boys third place in the basket ball games. The
boys did splendid work in football too.
The Freshman showed much talent, especially along musical lines.
Edna Garnett became leading lady in the High Scho-ol Operetta. The
l-'reshman also ranked second in the High School stunts, even excelling
the wise Faculty. .
This industrious class published 'a very interesting novel called
"June Dod1son's Lesson." This novel was the second one published in the
Enid High School. lt was much more interesting than the one published
the year before. i
The last interesting event before the examinations was the Freshman
picnic. Most all the members of the class weint to the jungles in 'hay
racks. The picnic was a great success since there were no Sophomores
along to taunt the Freshman and try to rule the day.
After a short vacation, this class again enrolled, not as ignorant
rresnmen, but wise, honorable Sophomores. They were no longer
irigntened when a member of the Faculty approached, and were looked
up to, especially by the Freshmen. On passing through the halls one
could hear the poor little underclassman say, in a low timid voice, f'Oh,
1 wish I was a Sophomore, they are so eg-er-catedlf'
By the end of the first week they had organized their class. Percy
Porter was President, Anna Miller Vice-president, and Floyd Tucker
Secretary and Treasurer.
Sophomores were much interested in -all High School sports, espec-
ielly class lights, in which they had very little trouble keeping their
colors afloat. The limbs of the Freshman were not strong enough to

Knew that it was useless to fight against this class.

They obtained important places in the operetta, glee club, chorus and
Percy Porter realized that the different members of the class were
studying so hard that they were liable to injure their health, so called a
meeting and proposed a Sophomore party. At first the class did not
-want to take so much time from their studies, but after the President
gave his reasons for having it, the members were very enthusiastic.
This St. P'atrick's party proved a great success and saved the Sophomores
a doctor bill.
The Slophomores elected Merrick Evans editor-in-Chief of the class

"Watch the Freshies now if you want to have some fun." This
was uttered by various Sophomores on the first day of school. They did
watch, but did they have any fun? I should say not! The time has come
now when the Freshman who enter High School are no longer verdant.
If there are a few who do not know what to do or where to go, there are
always enough of them who were eighth graders in E. H. S. the year
before to coach them so that in the future no Sophomore will have to

Our class was organized far sooner than the class of last year. Mr.
Sidney Fetherston was elected President, Lillian Rentchler Vice Presi-
dent and Pauline Hembree Secretary and Treasurer. And of course our
class colors are yellow and white. At the fourth chapel the Freshmen
gave their yell:

For many years back it has been the custom for the two lower
claisses to have a class fight. This year the classes of '16 and '17 had a
difhcult time getting together and both of the classes were to blame for
But finally one dark Tuesday night the deadly foes met a few blocks
from the High School. The Sophomores were completely routed the
first time and fled in great terror. Later in the evening Lieutenant
Porter took charge of the Sophomore army and with the help of some
eighth graders came back, gave a yell and went home declaring they had
won the fight. Now of course the Freshmen would not let matters
stand like that, so declared the Sophomores' report false.
A few days after this, there was a rumor afloat that it would be de-
cided that night which class was the nstronger. That evening the Fresh-
men came to the High School building, but no Sophomores appeared.
After waiting awhile they decided the Sophomores were too frightened to
come so they returned to their homes. Of course the fight was decided
in favor of the Freshmen. And it was a sad day for Lieutenant Porter
for he had always been a brave and capable leader. But I am sure we
cannot blame Mr. Porter for did you ever try to drive a chicken a place

On the foot-fbfall team of E. H. S. this year two of the Freshmen boys,
Otis Harp and Sidney Fetherston won their E's.
Newton Weatherly was elected foot-ball Captain of the Freshman
foot-ball team. He has proved himself capable of handling this position
and fought until the last, convincing some that, had our team been as
lucky as that of the Sophomores, we would have won the game.
After the Semester Examinations our class increased from one hun-
dred and twenty members to one hundred and thirty-five members.
The Freshman girls have a good basket-ball team this year. Lillian
Rentchler is captain of the team, and Edith Raulsin, Mary Sales and Eth-
el Stucker are some of the star players.
The Boys' basket-ball team is doing good work, although it was de-
feated by the Juniors 19-3. The Freshmen took courage, however,
when they found they were to play the Sophomores. The Sophomores
won, but the good spirit which the Freshman class has always manifest-
ed, stood till the last.

HIS FIRST CASE
The walks of life are many and varied, some are born to shine in
iiterary circlesg some acquire distinction by solving the many' social
and economic problems of the age, others become famous through wise
use of physical prowess. The world of today has a place ready and
waiting for any man who can do thingis, and do them well. This bit of
philosophy is as old as gossip and has proven its worth time and time
Jack Clifford had grown up with this idea installed into his very
brain. It had seemed so easy to specialize, to work hard and then, at
the end of a few years, to step out as a man of the world-a man ready
and competent to meet the needs of his fellowmen in anything pertaining
to his vocation.
'Ever since he could remember he had possessed one ambition-fixed
and settled. When he was but a child his father had been cheated out
of a valuable estate bv a "shyster" lawyer. He would follow law and
some day, if fortune favored him, he would surely avenge his father's
He had studied hard thru the high school period, and had succeeded
admirably in debate, in college. he had made his mark, and now, a
licensed practitioner of law he sat ifn a stuffy little office gazing at his
newly painted sign, and impatiently awaiting his first case. '
But the self-assurance that carried him thru the years of prepar-
ation was now somewhat shaken. He was beginning to realize that a
professional career is not a bed of roses. He felt that something was
lacking and now he saw what it was, Mere ability alone did not mean
success: the world must be shown, it must have confidence in him and
in his ability.
Jack decided to make a start near his old home in the Kentucky
hills. He felt that if he coufld curb the tempers of the "hot headedv
sons of the Blue grass state. he would not only make a success of his
profession, but would accomplish something no one had been able to do
before. He might. to some extent. dnl awav with the feudism that had
so long been a curse to his native state. He knew the character of the
Kentucky mountaineer-he understood the strange code of morals which
permits i'moon-shining" but kills for any form of "double dealing"-
the shrewd. suspicious. strongly religious, "hot-blooded" mountaineer.
ever ready with either gun or hospitality-a life-long friend or enemy-
a man who fights first and considers afterward, was like an open book
to him. He meant to "make good," and although he would not admit
it, he wanted the excitement and adventure for its own sake.
But exit moodingis and solilooruy-fLet us clear the decks for ac-
tionl Jack decided to take a walk, and, following the impulse of the
moment. he put on his hat, and relighting his cigar, started up the hill-
side. He had soon left the little village and was taking in long 'breaths
of the cool, exhilerating mountain air, Suddenly he stopped dead in his
tracks-the form coming down the mountain road, looked strangely
familiar. Thoughts of his college days came back-it could not be she-
but-still-yes, it wa1s: The one girl whom through all these months, he
had constantly seen in his mind's eye, despite all efforts to the con-
trary, was rapidly approaching. As they came together the recog-
nition was mutual. Reining in her horse, she stopped.
"Well, may I bel, beg pardon. This is certainly luck I" Jack
was bewildered. He merely stood by the roadside, his mouth wide
open, hirs eyes expressing plainly his joy at this unexpected meeting.
While the girl, having recovered from her first surprise, cordially ans-
wered his greeting-Her blue eyes twinkled, and her cheeks iiushed with
the ill-concealed joy at meeting.
"May I ask what you are doing in this forgotten corner of No-
where?" Jack asked, himself consumed with a desire to know how
long his good fortune would last.
"iOh! there's no telling. Papa's here on business, and I am trailing
along after. I love the mountains and I just must have my riding."
"Your father-here on business? Do you know you've never told
who he is? In what channel does your "pater" paddle his little canoe?"
"Hayen't I? Why, he is just like man-y other poor mortals-only
a plodding lawyer-"
At this news Jack suddenly remembered the smooth, plausible, slick
tongued lawyer who had tricked his father out of the old home property
back in the western part of the state, his father's move to Louisville,
where he had grown up: then at college, the informal meeting with the
girl. How easily he had grown to care for her, with never a thought
of her name or family, and now the sudden 'denouement'--Could it be
possible? Could this girl's father really be the man against Whom he
had sworn vengeance? Impossible! But yet-1
"Well, old sphnix. are you stricken dumb when I ,merely tell you' my
father's occupation? You hayen't even said you were glad to see me."
At the sound of reproach in her voice. Jack awoke from his revery
to see the beautiful eyes gazing down at him with a troubled expression,
as if some secret, which she could not tell, was weighing on the girl
who he felt should never know pain.
"O, I beg your pardon. I musst be getting absent-minded lately.
I may as well tell you. I am a lawyer too, and have yet to see my first
client. As to being glad to see you. you cannot ouestion that.-When
I awaken to the fact that this is reality, and not happy dream, I may
be more companionable. But can't you rest a few moments? I have
many things to tell you, and a chance like this may never come again.
With Jack'is assistafnce, Mabel dismounted and they were soon wan-
dering among the trees. happy in the interchange of reminiscences, the
pony grazing nearby. Absorbed in each other they drifted away from
the road and soon found themselves on the bank of one of th-e many
little streams, on back-waters. to be found in Kentucky. Comfortably'
seated in the shade of a big oak, .Tack again noted the troubled expres-
sion come over Mabel's face, and an unrestrainable impulse prompted
him to inquire the reason.
She looked into his frank, boyish countenance. refiected a moment,
and, as if throwing off a 'heavy burden, began:
"You knew, Jack, I'm troubled. I don't know what made me fol-
low Papa out here, but I just had to. I felt something was wrong. It
seems as if a strong undercurrent of some kind I cannot understand,
is pulling Papa away from me, from home. He is not like he used to
be-he paces back and forth, muttering to himself. We have taken a
small housein the village, and at night some of the strangest looking
men I ever saw, are locked with him in his study. They are rough and
boisterous. Oh! its awful! I can't believe he is doing wrong. I've
always looked up to him. though at times, T am almost afraid nf him-
Can't you help me? Only yesterday I heard him quarreling with a
revenue officer. At times I could hear broken sentences-something
about disclosure-disgrace. Won't you try-for me? Something must
be done and quickly."
She seemed almost on the verge of tears. Like a flash, Jack saw
the whole thing. "Once a crook, always a crook." Her father, his old
enemy. was in league with the moon-shiners. The chance he had
longed for all his life had come, but could he take it? Could he bear
to expose the father at the expense of wounding the feelings of the girl
He tried to thrust aside his conflicting emotions, and to think only of
the present. Only too willingly, he assured Mabel that she could de-
pend on him for anything in his power.
So they talked and talked, utterly regardless of time, until Jack,
inadvertently, glanced at his watch, and both agreed it was time to go.
Thev started back toward the road. However, they could not agree
which way to go. Each indicated a certain direction, but neither was
positive. As they stood undecided, discussing their predicament, it was
rapidly 'growing dark.
Blundering around. aimlessly, Jack's one thought was of getting
the girl safely out of what he realized was danger. But how was he to
do it? Life in cities and law schools has never been officially recogniz-
ed 'as conducive to a practical knowledge of Woodcraft, consequently
lwoth were helpless.
However, holding her closely to him, Jack forged bravely ahead,
keeping up a conversation that she might not realize how serious was
They had been walking some time, when suddenly they saw a light
through the trees. With new vigor they started toward it. Mabel's
endurance was tried almost to the breaking point, but she kept bravely
on. They approached nearer to the light, which seemed to draw them
on with a strange power- Now they could hear voices-loud, rough.
punctuated at times with ripping oaths and drunken laughter. It was
too late to turn back. In one glance they saw it all. Several roughly
clad, villianous looking men were sprawled round a camp fire near the
mouth of a cave. Suddenly one turned, and like a Hash a heavy Win--
chester came to his shoulder.
"Halt!" The cry rang out loud and clear in the night air. There
was nothing to do but obey. Making the best of a bad thing, Jack
stepping in front of Mabel explained that he was lost and inquired
the way to the village.
A course laugh went round the circle. "There'll be no village for
you, young feller," said one tall grey bearded old ruffian.
"Maybe you think that we don't know you. Now queer ourlittle
game would you ?" said another.
"Guess you better take him back," said a dapper, well dressed
little crook who appeared to be the leader. With that, a concerted
rush was made.
Altho not in the best of condition, and taken by surprise, Jack
fought as only a strong hearted main with red blood in his veins can
fight, when cornered. Thoughts of Mabel relying on him alone for
protection doubled his strength. He had boxed and wrestled in his
college days, and now the training stood him in good stead. The
first man to come within reach met a left iuppercut in the point of
the jaw and fell like a stricken ox. A second came and a third,-
"Dodging, ducking, leading here and "carrying" there, .Tack fought
with the courage of despair. A fourth man had fallen. when the little
leader. with stealthv. cat-like movements slipped around and brought
the butt of his pistol down on .Tack's head with a crash. Staggering
blindly and :fighting to the last, Jack fell. When he regained conscious-
ness he and Mabel were securely bound and under guard in the cave-
Slowly, as he came back to his senses, he was conscious -of Mabel's
voice whispering to him in the darkness. "Don't worry, Jack-you
couldn't helo it. I know you were not to blame as for the fight
it was simply grand. We're bound to get out some way."
Such words from her lips proved the beast of restoratives and Jack
was almost himself again.
Outside thev could hear voices discussing them. Crawling nearer
the mouth of the cave. .Tack looked out. The fire was still burning
brightly: two men presumablv their guards were sitting near it,
smoking unconcernedly-their rifles near at hand. but seemingly con-
Hdent that the ropes would prevent their captives from causing
"What were the fools doin' here, anyway? That stall about being
lost looks funny to me. Guess they must be trying' to find out some-
thing," said one.
"Yep, guess vour's right." replied his comrade. "He'd have knowed
if he kept straight ahead a little ways he'd've found the road."
"Looks funny about the gal, be'in with him tho' donft it. Nice
looking gal, ain't she?"
Already our hero considered himself fullv reoaid for listening. He
knew now the way to town and, in all probability, the guards would
soon relax their vigilance entirely and a chance for escape might present
itself. But what he had learned was not all. After a short silence,
in which the fire had been replenished, the first speaker began again.
"Guess we've just about got things goin' our way now. The boss
has got old Lawyer Brown :sunk in pretty deep and he can give us the
pull we need. You know he stands in with the revenues."
"Yep, that old man always was a crook- We donft need to lose no
sleep about the revenues now. old Brown can handle them. Lucky he's
gone in for politics, ain't it?"
That was all, but it was enough proof of the guilt of Mabel's fath-
er. Could she have heard? He hoped not. He crawled back to his
former position and lying still, signaled Mabel to be very careful.
In a little while, altho it :seemed ages to the prisoner, the deep
snores of the guards warned them it was time for action. Rolling over
Jack touched Mabel. .
"Be quiet now,-but move-hold out your hands. We'll get out
of this mess," he whispered.
Obeying, silently, she held out her hands and Jack, gnawing, 'biting
for centuries it seemed, finally severed the rope, which bound her hands.
"Now reach in my left pocket and get my knife."
This was quickly done and almost in the twinkling of an eye, the
finst difficulty was overcome.
"Now let's be careful, donit make a sound until you hear me call."
With that he tock his pocket knife, his only weapon, and crawled
silently to the mouth of the cave. Less than ten feet from him lay the
sleeping guards, their riiies within easy reach. He realized that the
slightest slip, the least mistake, meant death for him and probably worse
for Mabel. But it was no time for forebodings. He mulst succeed. A
moment he waited. cool and determined now that the crisis was at hand,
then with a leap he reached the nearest man. At the first sound both
men, trained as every man who lives by facing death constantly, can
be, sat up, reaching mechanically for their rifles. But too late, -Tack
had them covered and took possession of the riiiles.
"One sound and you're dead men!" Jack's face was hard and cold'
and his voice had a menacing, steely ring that told both men that he
meant everything he said and would stay by it.
"Stand up!" As the command was being obeyed. "Jack called
quickly to Mabel to repair the ropes as best she could and bind the men-
He was amazed at her success. The guards, themselves were dumb with
astonishment. scarcely knowing what had happened, when Jack and
Mabel fled. They got their bearings and soon reached the road. The
real journey lay before them, but undaufnted they forged ahead. Jack
suffered intensely from the wound on his head, and Mabel had to be
carried part of the way, but just before daybreak they entered the
After taking Mabel home, Jack went to his ofice to rest and to
plan out his course for the day. It had happened that Mabel's father
had not returned from the city the night before. so Jack would have
to wait until the aftern-oon train arrived before he could see him.
He had a difficult problem to solve. The time had come to choose be-
tween Mabel on one side and duty and revenge on the other, but
he was a man of action and he felt iustified in his final decision. He
would see her father privately at the first obportunitv and let him choose
between complete restoration or exposure. He felt sure Mabel would
see the justice pf his position and it was better for her, after all,
that her father be stopped before he had gone any further. The de-
cision made, his mind was relieved. and he fell asleep.
Late that afternoon he dispatched a messenger to see if old Brown
had returned and would give him an audience.
A short time later. when he presented himself. Mabel met ,him at the
door and her eyes told him she knew and understood. Soon he was
closeted with her father in the study. Determined to get the unpleasant
matter over with as soon as possible, Jack went straight to the point.
"Mr, Brown. perhaps you remember me and perhaps you don't-but
that ins immaterial. The main question is this, I know of your recent
dealings with a few men who are particularly adverse to being seen in
public. I overheard a conversation of some moonshiners last night
and learned of your hand in the revenue deal. I have conclusive proof
of facts which, if made public, would not only ruin your career but
would break the heart of your daughter. I'm not here to blackmail,
although I've known some lawyers who do worse than that- Your case
is especially interesting to me. Perhaps if I mention the name of
Eugene Clifford you will remember a little deal of a few yearns ago by
which you enriched yourself to the extent of an estate worth several
thousand dollars to you, but more to me. Eugene Clifford Was my
father and that estate was my home. My father died almost in poverty
and now I am here for restoration, and by all that's holy I mean to
"I'm going to give you a chance for your daughter's sake. Either
you restore all you took from my father, with interest to date, or to-
morrow will find you where you'll cause no more trouble for anyone.
I'll give ou five minutes to make up your mind and choose."
Jack stopped speaking and taking out his watch, sat back in his
chair and 'awaited the decision- His "vis-a-vis" a good student of human
nature, scrutinized him intently. He read determination in the strong
chin and firm mouth. He knew Jack was right, his own better judg-
menlt told him he had met more than his equal and that his time had
come, and complete surrender was his only alternative. His decision
was made.-With a world of power in his voice he lsaid: "Young man
no person has ever talked to me as you have. Mavbe you have the goods
and me, maybe you haven't. but at any rate I'll take you at your word,
not that I care for myself, but for Mabel."
And then the unexpected happened. The old man, who had never
given awav before, broke down and wept. This was too much for Jack.
Behind all his stern resolve to be unlbending, was a feeling for others,
especially older people, and then the man before him was Mabel's
Quickly crossing the room he held out his hand. "Mr. Brown. I'm

The old man's grasp at the extended hand was like that of a drown-
A few years have passed since the episode last described. Jack
is lord and master now of the homestead which was so dear to him.
The sign above the big suite of rooms which he styles his office reads:
"Clifford and Brown, Attorneys at Law." The combination of Brown's
experience and knowledge of the game and Jack's energetic and active
ability is proving the best of investmenfts for all concerned. Needless to
sav Brown has completely reformed and enjoys the confidence of every-
one who knows him. The only thing .Tack does not whollv ann-cove of
in the now arrangement. is the fact that Mabel's attention is now alb-

reader to guess the reason why.
Back in the h'ills feudism and moonshining is still found to some
extent. but .Tpwlz flops not worry over that fact. He hasn't time-his

TO THE SENIOR.
It will be a sad day Senior,
When you leave these High School halls.
May it ever be the pleasures,
Which your memory recalls.
May you never think of "farm-out",
Nor of consultations slow,
Nor of cafeteria lunches,
Nor of grades dreadfully low.
But remember all the pleasures,
Such als "skip-dayi' and auto ride,
When our guide in sports and lessons,
Brought home his blushing bride.
Seniors, when you leave this High School,
May We who follow you,
Defend our Alma Mater,
Uphold the White and Blue.
When the honor of the High School
Which yo-u nobly have sustained,
Is entrusted to your fellows,
May they know what they have gained.
Seniors, we, your Junior schoolmates,
Do our Word and honor give,
To uphold the High School honor,
And by its standard live.
When blades of grass come springing up,
When comes the rose and buttercupg
When cold sinovvflakes have ceased to fall,
'Tis Spring that lends her touch to all.
When birds fly north from summer seas,
To build their nests in apple trees,
When in your flowers are humming bees,
'Tis Spring that opens and lets you free.
When school dayns cease to be a pest,
When people flock in summer dress,
When baseball season does commence,
,Tis Spring that keeps us in suspense.

And till me with longing-and then a great sigh

Thy sauerkraut and wienies and good old rye bread.

That melt in my mouth. Then fondly it seems,
I see a great cuo of delicious cocoa.

And ice cream and sherbet, and cookies and cake,
And that scalloped corn that the cook failed to bake.
For e'er and a day I could rave on like this,
'Bout joy that Thou gavest me, 'boult rapturous bliss
But e'en must I cease e'er thy praises to sing,
For the wheels in my head are beginning to ring.
So I bid thee adieu, my task to pursue,
Farewell to thy jello, thy chilli and stew.
But thee with fond memories, in my mind shall remain,
Though mafny a time, Thou did'st give me a pain,
Farewell and adieu and also goodbye,
May thou live on forever though we mortals must die.

Why work till you are weary?

Enid High, to the public to cater,
Gave a show at the American Theatre,
The maidens were sassy,
The song hits were classy,
Not an actor received a 'ttomaterf'
The star of the show was Doriis,
She led the 'boyish girls' chorus,
When the lines said to cuddle
She made not a muddle.
Thus she made a big hit did Doris.
The hero was adorable Jack,
As the lead, mot a thing did he lack,
He talked very witty,
And looked very pretty,
When he sang he was always clapped back.
His rival was Lord Wood-be-Rich,
Who had recently crossed the ditch,
He was surely a dude,
When to Doris he cooed
But she scorned his wooings and 'sichf'
The Jew was backing Lord Richg
His lines went without a hitch!
He planned to lend money,
S0 England's dear sonny,
Could marry a girl o' the rich.
Now the charming young widow, Miss Grass,
Was a fondly affectionate lassg
Propelled by fate,
She was searching a mate,
But she wanted a man with some class.
A Freshman there was named Green,
The greenest that ever was seen g
They called him the kiddo,
He courted the Widdow,
Doing stunts as a go between.
Next was the haughty Mrs. Bond
'Of his millions, not her husband, was she fond,
She climbed into society,
In the flashy costumes she had donned.
Mr. Bornd was portly and slow,
To all the good games did he go,
At the points that he scored,
The house fairly roared,
These are all the actors of our show.
Then the kiddo and widdow recited,
Their plans to become united,
The lord was stunned dizzy,
The Jew got busy,
And the audience it was delighted.
It came to an end when the chorus
Sang a song for Jack and Doris,
Mrs. Bond acted snappy, '
Mr. Bond sure was happy,
Then they sang the closing ch-orus.

THE CALL OF THE DESERT.
I stamd upon the desert sand,
A stranger in a foreign land.
No one is near.
Blood red the sun glows in the west,
Around by dusty black clouds pressed
A thing of fear.
I gaze, and dark spots arise,
A Spector gaunt and by surprise,
I'm chained there.
The clouds now move, and twist about,
While lightning flashes in and out
The musky air.
The Wind rnow shriekis and Whistles by,
The White sand rushes towar the sky,
The specter hurries on,
His body is enrobed in black,
Oh now he's come.
He grabs me in his arms, I shriek,
His icy breath is on my cheek,
In vain I cry.
In vain I struggle for my breath,
In vain, for in the hands of death
I can but die.

The Websterian Literary Society was organized at the beginning of
the school year of 1912-13, and was re-organized at the beginning of this
year. There were ten charter members this year, and from time to time
new members have been admitted, until the membership now totals about
Mr. W. P. Canavan was chosen as faculty director, and his able ad-
vice bars helped the Society to attain its success.
The society has been characterized by great enthusiasm in both the
social and literary programs of the year. A novel Websterian J'stunt"
was staged in chapel, Dec. 7th, in which, "Websterian Fame goes Around
and Around," and, "The Train came rolling around the Bend," were sung.
Another social feature occurred on a certain Friday evening when the
society members gathered at the High School building for initiation of
new members and a "feed"
The members have always considered social interests ais secondary,
and literary work as primary. During the year they have striven to de-
velop three great lines of literary work, namely, parliamentary drill, de-
bate, and extemporaneous speaking. Several novel methods were em--
ployed in parliamentary work, through which the members have gained
a good general knowledge of parliamentary principles. At least one de-
bate occurred at each regular meeting, held every Wednesday evening.
Considering the fact that extemporaneous speaking is a great asset to
success ifn. the business world, it has been insisted upon that each mem-
ber be willing to give impromtu talks whenever requested.
One of the most interesting as well as educational features of the
years work, was a mock trial held at the District Court Room. A charge
of forgery was raised against Vernie Gioltry and a very interesting battle
of wits was fought between the prosecution and the defense. Messrs.
Elam and Moreland for the prosecution and Meinhardt and Hoover for
the defense. The procedure was initiative of a real trial and it can truth-
fully be said that only the charge was a "mock,"
The Websterians are very proud of their record in debate this year.
Having four regular men and two alternatives on the interscholastic
They have developed a good fraternal spirit, some excellent debaters
and speakers, and feel assured that Websterian will always be a name as-
sociated With E. H. S. enterprises.

The Forum Literary Society has been in existence for two years.
As we look back over the work accomplished we feel that it merits a con-
siderable amount of commendaticn. The progress of the society has been
amazing and due largely to the charter-membership and the choice in the
selection of new members. At the begfnning of its career as a society
the members were inexpericened but now the society has grown to be
second to none in the High School. There is the proper spirit and en-
thusiasm to make this society a permanent organization in this school.
To achieve the best in lterary, moral, and social growth is its aim.
It has reached a standard now which has acquired no small effort to at-
tain. The efforts of its members have been concentrated upon those vital
things necessary to a finished scholar, such as parliamentary law, current
events, debate, and extemporaneous speaking. The order has been ex.
cellent, the program cf high character and every member including those
who have just recently joined have taken such interest that those who are
leaving 'need have no fear for the future of the society.
To the Alumni of the Forum and those who will soon become mem-
bers of that body this society offers honorary membership. The members
will alvvayas be glad to see them back and wish them to feel that brotherly
love and friendly support is still manifest.

The High School has had in the past literary societies of different
and indifferent kinds. But they were not permanent organizations. In
the past year the boys have successfully established two thriving societies
The girls however, had no part in this literary work. The Forum saw
the injustice of this and established the Erodelphian, a girls literary so-
ciety. Meetings were held every Wednesday evening in the English room.
Each meeting opened with a literary program followed by a business ses-
sion. The leading questions of the day were discussed in debates and
speeches, and musical numbers added much to the enjoyment of the pro-
In recent debates much talent was shown and the Erodelphian will no
doubt bring forth, in the future, some splendid debators.
The society is founded on the following principles: 1
The equality of students.
Advamcement of literary work, and the general upfbuilding of the
institution of which it ins a part.
The Society is under the able direction of Miss Powers, and the
honorary members are Miss Buckner and Miss Crawford. All were inter-
ested and of great benelit to the organization.
The Society is young, but its youth is no hindranceg for what has
youth, if not enthusiasm and unceasing energy. As it grows older, it is
hoped, that it IA ill not lose any of its youthful virtuesg but will add to
these foundations, stability and experience and will become a potent
factor in the progress of E. H. S.

Verein Colors-Black, White and Red
History of the German Sprach-Verein.
The German Sprach-Verein was organized Oct. 10, 1913, under the
directorship of Miss Kellerman. The purpose of this Verein was to learn
to speak German more fluently. The Verein was to be composed of sec-
ond and third year German students. First year :students were to be ad-
mitted at the beginning of the second semester. A constitution with by-
laws was drawn up and accepted. Officers were elected with Irene
Shockley as president.
During the first semester a large membership was secured. Great
interest was manifested in the meetings. The things contributing to this
interest were, the personality of the popular directress, Miss Kellerman,
the meritorious programs rendered, the German games and other social
pastimes indulged in, and last but not least, the work of the Critic, Carl
Ford. The work of this Critic was to Hne any member one cent, when-
ever that member spoke English in the meetings, and you may be sure
that Carl increased the amount in the treasury.
The crowning event of the success of the Verein was the Christ-
nras party or reception. Guests to this affair included Supt. Jacoby,
Principal Thuerman and Miss Graves of the E. H. S. faculty, Miss Jones
of the faculty of Phillips University, and some of the first year German
students. A splendid program was given in the English ROOYTI and the
other festivities were he-ld in the sewing room of the Domestic Science de-
At the commencement of the second semester new officers were elect-
ed with Guido Mosig as president. Seventeen candidates for admission
to the Verein were considered and those who were accepted were initiated
and installed as members.
As they look back on what they have accomplished in striving to at-
tain their purpose, they conclude that the Verein has been a decided suc-
cess. The member who will graduate this year will depart from the
Verein, as an active member, with regret, but will also leave behind him
his good-wishes and hopes for the future success of the Verein.
SENIOR HALLOWE'EN PARTY.
One of the most delightful affairs of the year wats the HalloWe'en
party given by the Seniors in honor of the Faculty. The Seniors, the
Faculty and the visiting football team from Chickasha met in the High
School gymnasium at eight o'clock. The room was decorated in corn
fodder, schocks and pumpkins.
Each guest Was given a bow of ribbon and all persons wearing the
same colored rilabons belonged to one of the four schoolsg Princeton, Yale,
Harvard and Northiweistern and a mock track meet was held. Princeton
carried off the honors and received a tin loving cup. Then the Faculty
were asked to put on some stunts, such as ducking for apples, singing and
dancing and they Were game.
Next came an amusing contest in which the boys proposed to the
girls, who were all dressed as ghosts. Mr. Guido Mosig received the prize
for getting the most acceptanccs and Mr. Brown was the "boobie."
The party then Went to the cafeteria Where ia typical Ha1lo1We'en
luncheon was served. Toasts were given by Supt. Jacoby, Mr. Thuermer,
Miss Graves, Miss Kellerman and Misis Powers of the Faculty, Mr. Rex
Cleveland of Senior Class, Mr. Wallace of Chickasha, Mr. Roy Eiam pre-
siding as toast master.
THE FOOTBALL BANQUET.
Tuesday night of December Sth. The loyality of the High School was
well shown by the banquet which was given in honor of the football squad.
Everyone assembled in the gym which was profusely decorated with pen-
nants. Profiles of the members of the team were hung on the Wall to
A very entertainiing program was given after which the guests
went to the cafeteria. The tables were decorated in blue and White with
a souvenier football at each place. An elaborate three course banquet
was served. Because of the lateness of the hour only one toast was given
by Everett Wilmoth, who was elected captain of the 1914 squad.
On the evening of Friday Nov. 27th. Mr. and Mrs. Brown entertained
the members of the football squad and their lady friends. The guests
were received by Mr. Brown and conducted to the living room where
many variations of the game flinch were played. After this profiles of
the boys were flashed on a screen while others were to guess who they
were. They then retired to the dining room where lunch was served. The
table was marked off as a football field, the players being represented by
glasses of punch.
Favors of the evening were stamp pictures of "Baby Brown" posted
upon card board cut in the shape of a football.
Every one who was present was glad he was a football boy and for-
got all the knocks, kicks, bruises etc., when they saw the delicious four
course dinner which was served in their honor at the home of Lacy Butler.
Although some of them had a little hard luck on the way home caused by
a punctured tire on one of the cars, they all agreed that never before was
there such fried chicken.
One of the jolliest parties was the one given by the Juniors and Sen-
iors for Miss Hansen, Miss Kempton and Mr. Waller, January 23.
The evening was spent with games and songs. A travelers contest
furnished a great deal of amusement in which Mr. Lacey Butler won the
prize, a minature suit case. Then a musical program was given under the
direction of Miss Garnett.
As a remembrance Miss Hansen was presented with a mesh bag,
Mr. Waller a silk umbrella, Miss Kempton a cut glass vase. Each gift
was presented with an appropriate speech and a response followed. Re-
freshments were then served. When it came time to say good-bye it was
with deep regret on the part of both the students and the departing
OPERETTA CAST PARTIES.
The dull practices which are always looked forward to with dread
by the cast, proved to be this year one round of pleasure parties. The
first practice was held at the home of Josephine Scartf. After the re-
hearsal a chafing dish luncneon of two courses was served, after which
dancing and singing were enjoyed until a late hour.
The next rehearsal was held at Miiss Garnett's where the true hos-
pitality of the home was extended.
The following rehearsal was at the home of Beatrice Jones where a
lovely luncheon was served at a late hour.
The last but not least of the rehearsal festivities was an elaborate
six o'clock dinner at the home of Zella McCristy. The table was decorated
in valentine favors. After the short rehearisal dancing was enjoyed.
It was with great regret that all the good times came to an end, but
there was something else in store of which they knew nothing. On April
3, Mr. Lehrer who wrote the music of the Pennant stopped in Enid be-
tween trains on his way to the southern part of the state. Miss Garnett
had arranged to have him take dinner with the cast at the High School
during the seventh period. They had a very jolly time and after dinner
they went to the studio where a number of lselections from the Opera
were given for the benefit of Mr. Lehrer who had expected to attend the
Opera, but was prevented by delayed trains.
RED LETTER DAY.
Monday morning, Nov. 10, it was rumored that Mr. Thuermer had
been married the Saturday before. During chapel while gossip was
whispering it around the Seniors surprised everybody, by advancing and
showering the groom with rice. After chapel the Seniors met Mrs.
Thuermer and after school they took the newly married couple to see the
town and then all returned to the wonderland theatre.
Un Monday, Nov. 17, in celebration of the admission of Oklahoma
as a state an appropriate program was rendered in chapel.
Dec. 16, Mr. Leslie King of the Ben Greet players gave a very inter-
esting interpretation of Shylock from the Merchant of Venice. It was
indeed a great pleasure to hear him as he is a master in the art of acting.
January 9. The Athletic association gave a great carnival in which
the talent of the school was displayed. A -large crowd attended and the
money went to buy sweaters for the Foot-Ball boys.
January 12. Football boys wear their new E sweaters.
Feb. 13. Will be remembered for many a year in the musical de-
partment, as the day the Pennant made such a great hit at the American.
March 3. The Seniors ap-peared in chapel dressed as farmers. They
were allowed to coiniduct the chapel exercises.
March 20. A special chapel was held at which three members from
both the Forum and Webisterian agreed to quit knocking and bury the
hamnner for all time.

Among the many events connected with school life, there is none
which should and does command more interest and attention, than the
annual high school debate.
From the very beginning of the school year of 1913-14, much inter-
est was shown in this line of work, which grew out of the increased in-
terest in the literary societies. Competition between these societies for
representative places on the team, was strong. There were fifteen stu-
dents entered in the preliminary try-out, which was held in February,
out of which the following six were elected: Elam, Baker, Goltry, Mein-
hardt, Burt, and Obuclh. 'Elam, Obuch, Burt and Meinhardt were old
representatives of E. H. S., and Goltry and Baker proved to be very
strong, so that Enid had a good line up to meet her strong opponents.
y The question, Resolved :-"That no Tolls should be Levied on U. S.
Vessels passing thru the Panama Canal," was argued with the Guthrie
High School. The affirmative team of each school was the visiting team,
and the two contests were held on the same night, in connection with
' After the clash of opinion, on the night of March twentieth, after
the smoke had cleared away, there came the announcement that the con-
test had resulted in a draw, with the decisions, two to one, in favor of the
affirmative team of each school.

Not long after the opening of the fall semester, appeared the illus-
trious Girls Glee Club and discoursed melodious ditties in chapel. It
has kept right on ever since. Whenever it felt like it, it would wander
up to the front during the chapel hour and carol cawhile. The Club
appeared at the annual debate with Guthrie, as did also the Boys Sex-
mette, and won great applause. The professors and professorines were
gladdened by the harmonies of the Club at various county teachers
meetings. No little part of the success of the H. S. Ooeretta. f'The
Pennant" was due to the painstaking preparation and high class per-'
formance of this body.
The Club has twenty-six members, of whom the following were
chosen to represent us in the contest at Norman, April 23-25th
Edna Garnett, Zella McChristy, Josephine Scarff, Maun Stout, Adah
Stephenson, Burma Horney, Neva Dunsworth, Hazel Luther, Gladys
Cambell, Viola Slater, Ferrn Goltry, Sarah Godschalk, Helen Blackesley,
Beatrice Jones, Helen Hatch, Beulah Henson, Adeline Johnson.
There is also a Boys Sextette as mentioned before. It has not only
favored the High School on various and sundry occasions, but it has
made glad the hearts of revelers at numerous parties, receptions, and
like festivities in the city. The Sextette is composed of those famous
sifngers, Erroll Gates, Paul Rarey, Frank McGinnis, Doyle Cotton. Roy
Elam and Guido Mofsig, and with three celebrities, Russell McClellen,
Carroll Mclntosh and Gilbert Morton it became known as the Boys
A Girls Quartette composed of Edna Garnett, Adah Stephenson,
Helen Blakeslee and Beulah Henson has done creditable work with only
one rehearsal a week. They appeared at Commencement time in Men-
dehlsson's Spring Song on the Concert Program.
The Orchestra of the High School under the direction of Miss Maud
Garnett is one of the leading organization of the school- It is com-
posed of ia large number of talented musicians. The selections of the
Orchestra have been of the highest classical order and they have been
rendered with marked ability.
The most successful aEair ever put on by the High School was the
Pennant, an operetta in two acts. It was given by the musical depart--
ment under the direction of Miss Garnett. The Words were by Frank M.
Colville and the music by Mr. Oscar J. Lehrer.
The story of the play was typical of true college life and full of
school spirit. All taking part entered into the spirit of it and played
their part as if in reality. The large audience which packed the thea-
tie to its utmost were very appreciative through every moment of the
The honors of the evening went to Miss Josephine Scarff who took
the leading role of a college heiress, Doris. She won her entire au-
dience by her sweet voice and clever acting.
Mr. Erroll Gates as leading man, J ack, the football hero and ardent
lover of Doris showed his splendid voice and acting to perfection-
Miss Beatrice Jones took the part of the iron woman of the world,
Mrs. Jeramiah Bond, and was excellent in her part.
Mr. Guido Mosig looked and acted' the self-made millionaire and
produced a laugh from the audience at each appearance.
Miss Zella McChrifsty, the merry widow chaperon took her part
well and pulled off some great stunts with Verdent Green.
Doyle Cotton who 'took the part of "Greenie" was the scream of
the evening and kept the audience in a continual uproar.
Paul Rarey as the "Don't you know man," Lord Woodbe Rich, a for-
tune hunter did his part excellently.
Russel McClellafn, The Jewish money lender, shared the honors with
Verdant Green as comedians.
The parts of Bennie Owen, Coach-Mason and Harding, friends of
Jack, were taken by Red Hart, Roy Elam and Carrol McIntosh, who all
Miss Edna Garnet was Miss Sweet, in reality as well as name. She
was a friend of Doris.
Miss Hatch another friend, was Miss Young and her rich alto voice
won much admiration.
The Chorusels were all catchy, and perfectly drilled, and made pos-
sible to a large extent the success of the show.
The costumes worn were very pretty, im fact it was all a great suc-
cess and not enough praise can be given Miss Garnett for her direction
One of the principal reasonls the opera was such a success was due
to the able accomnariment of the orchestra. It followed the players
perfectly and added much to the entertainment of the audience by play-
ing several catchv selections before acts. A great deal of praise was
given to the orchestra which it certainly deserved.
Every one said each character iust suited the part, and it was an
all star production.
A large amount of money was made which was spent in sending
representatives to Norman, helping to defray the expenses of the Annual
and to furnish the studio. All of those benefited are very grateful to
The Enid High School Orchestra is one of the leading organizations
in the sschool. It is composed of very talented musicians and its work
has been of a very high class, rendered with marked ability.
The orchestra has appeared in chapel several times. It has fur-
nished the music for many of the occasions of note that have been given
at the school- Besides this, they have played at several of the big so-
ciety affairs of the city. Much of the credit for the Operetta is due
to the Orchestra. This aggregation was also one of the large elements
which constituted the success of the Alumni Play. the Class Play and
the Class day exercises.

The chorus is another organization of the school 'ohat deserves hon-

their time and ability ungrudgingly to make this chorus a succesis is a
pleasing evidence of the spirit We all swear by.
The Music students of Enid High carried off the honors at the
state musical contest held in Norman April 24th. Our school Was re-
presented by the boy's and girl's glee clubs, by Frederick Claiborne, viol-
inist, Opal Johnson, pianist, Faye Herzberg, Doyle Cotton and Erroll
A great disappointment was that the boy's glee club could not en-

glee club which appeared on the scene. The girl's glee club far excelled
their rivals in tone color. balance and artistic rendition. and easily Won
the cup. Frederick Claiborne Won second place in the violin contest.
Dean Holmberg of the music department of the University, announcing
the decision of the Judges, spoke very highly of Mr. Claiborne's nlaving,
saying he had a wonderfull future as ia violinist. The decision of the
judges in the violin contest was a surprise and a dis-appointment not
only to Enid students but to the Whole audience, with the exception of

Sweet Lavender regarded as one of the most successful plays of

this is the very :simplicity and impretentiousness of this domestic come-

the play. V

kind-hearted impulsive Hale, Who tries to make a man of Dick, the

nature and may be rightfully regarded as a modern fairy tale, designed
as a pleasant entertainment and it has had a phenomenally successful

The Sophomore is a paper published by the Sophomore Class of
each year. This custom was started by Professor E- J. Allen, instructor
in English, in 1912.
The first paper was a daily, consisting of but four pages and last-
ing but one week. This was a very successful beginning of this paper,
G. K. Storm being Editor-in-Chief. The next year it was edited by
Roy J. Elam, who deserves credit for his work during this period. The
Class of '15 put out the most successful paper in its history. Clarence
Meinheardt was editor this term.
Following this prototype set by the previous classes, this year's
Sophomores took up the example. The paper this time consisted of eight
pages and was published semi-monthly for two months.
The purpose of the paper is to create more enthusiasm among the
lower classmen, to help relieve the monotony during the dull period of
the year and to demonstrate the ability of the younger students. Thus
far the Sophomore has been a success in every way.
. F RESHMEN NOVEL
It has been the custom every year for the Freshmen English Classes
to write a short story. This story was created to produce something
representative of the Freshmen Class.
Each member of the Freshmen English Classes wrote a chapter
and one chapter was chosen from each class. This year the first chap-
ter was Written by Miss Adelene Johnson, the second by Miss Grace
Moore, the third by Miss Ruth Whitson, and the fourth by
As this story is improving each year, it is only natural that the
story this year is superior to the previous ones.
The story was edited by Harold Godschalk and the business man-
agement was entrusted to Lee Cromwell.

best ends. Especially good in the defense. Received mention on
all State Team.
8. Percy Porter.

veteran. Should develop into a good kicker.
10. Otis Harp-"Tots"

We cannot boast of an all-victorious and championlship team this
year, but 'we can say no other team could have done as well with as
little experience, although we lost three out of eight of our games, this
does not indicate our real strength. The Norman game was lost not by
No1man's stellar playing, but by their good luck. The Oklahoma City
and Shawnee games were won by the superor weight of the opposing
team, and not by good playing. T'he Chickasha game showed what
the team could do against some one of their size. We walked over them
by a score of 16 to 0. It might be remembered also that Chickasha
beat Norman. This shows that Norman's victory over us was luck.
WITH THE TEAM.
T At Home. p
The irst game opened at home with Pawnee as the victims. The
indians had no show against our fast first team, so Coach sent the
scrubs and they succeeded in makng two touchdowns. The final count
was Enid 545 Pawnee 0. Every one starred.
On October 15th came Watonga with their men hungry for the
battie. They soon lost their appetite however and we won 40 to 0.
Hienie and Red were the stars.
The first of our big' games was played with Chickasha as our op-
ponents. Als they had won from Norman they were over confident and
supposed they would have a walk away. They soon changed their
minds when in the first quarter we scored a touchdown and a field goal-
lt was a great game from the first blow of the whistle till time was
called in the last quarter. Wilmoth starred in passing and Wicker in
held goals. Enid 183 Ohickasha 0.
The greatest game of the year wars played the following Friday,
with Norman as our aggressors. It was a game that will go down on
all E. H. S. records and we held them to the close score of 6 to 0, be-
ing from 45 to '79 points less than we had ever done before. If one
of our ends, whose name modesty keeps us from mentioning, had not
been asleep the :score might have been reversed. Heretofore the Nor-
man game had always been a walk-away for Norman but this year they
were doofned for disappointment. With all their swift and snappy
formation they only succeeded in making one measley touchdown. The
great individual work of Lacy Butler and Eb. Wilmoth was respofneible
for the low score. A
The final home game was played with Perry, Thanksgiving Day.
Our team was too much for them however and they returned home
feeling very much like a steam roller had passed over them. Denner
and Tubby were the sstars. Red and Bink succeeded in paying off some
old debts they declared they owned the Perry bunch, very much to the
discomfort of the latter.
At Oklahoma Cityi
Being forced to play in slippery alfalfa field and against heavy
men, we naturally lost by a score of 40 to 12. It might have been
worse- Punch and Elam rented a room so they could watch the sky-
rocket all night. Gates and Bingham roomed at the Skirvin.
Here was played one of the best games of the season according to
all reports. Flannigan and Wilmoth were the stars for Enid. W'hy
was it that Lacy Butler and Wicker had to be made come home. The
boys took in the Oklahoma City-Lawton game Saturday.
At Wichita: '
Quite a few of the Faculty and Assistants went with the team to
Wichita. The Wichita boys treated us royally, and we would not ask
for better. The Y. M. C. A. was the headquarters for every one except
Mack and Bink. Mack says a law should be pasised prohibiting police-
men from hitting you on the feet when you are asleep in the depot.
The inter-class games of 1913 were more interesting than any
series ever played. The first, played 'between the Sophs and Freshmen,
resulted in a 8 to 0 victory for the second year men. The Sophs scored
a safety in the first quarter and a touchdown in the tlhird, made by
Capt. Harp, following a brilliant 30-yard pass to Leslie- The next game
was played between the Juniors and Seniors, resulting in ia victory for
the 1912 champions, by the score of 21 to 0. The work of Goltry and
Forney for the Juniors was the feature- Thie championship game was
won by the Sophs to the tune of 14 to 0. The Juniors Chopes were
lessened by the abvsence of Goltry and Eorney. The brilliant work of
Capt. Harp of the Sophomores was the feature of the game. He scored
one of the touchdowns by a sensational 40-yard run through the whole
Junior team. The other touchdown was made by Triplett.
SENIORS VS. ALL SCHOOL.
On December the 20th a game of football was played on the Enid
Grounds that made the name of Enid famous all over the United States.
It was the game between the Seniors and All School. An array of foot-
ball stars, that can never again be equaled was there to take part in
the battle, each man determined to do or die. Coach Waller with his
All 'Sclhool team practiced for nearly two weekrs getting his team in
condition for the great battle. The Seniors. confident they could hold
their own. did not even call signal practice till a few mniutes before the
game. Thus you see the condition of the teams the night before the
fray. But next-when awoke morning's light. Jupiter Pluvius had
taken and turned the great arena from a swell football field into -a sea
of mud and water. This accounts for the victory of the All School.
The game, however, started with a rush but on account of the mud
the players were soon winded and the game went slow. Near the end
of the first quarter, the All School's plunging fullback, Dewitt Waller,
lstubbed his toe on an island near the Senior's goal and being unable to
check himself. fell over the line and registered the only touchdown of
the game. Between the halves both teams kept warm by sliding through
the worst mud hole on the field. Those starring in this were Waller and
Harp for the All School, and Bingham for the Seniors.
Former star center of Epworth and member of All State team of
1909- From weak and green material Coach Waller has formed a strong
team in his three years as Enid coach, that has met the approval of all
who have seen them in action. This year marks his last year and with
him go all the boys who have been under his training three years.
It is to our coach we owe the placing of Athletics on a 'better basis and
all the victories we have won. It is with regret we see him leave, and
we wish him happiness and good luck.
THE FOOT BALL BOY.
Blessings on thee little man,
Foot ball boy with cheeks of tan!
With his muddy pantaloons,
And his sore spots, without name
Kissed by "Strawberries" from the gameg
With a bruised and dirty face,
He must still keep up the paceg
From my heart I wish you luck
Lest you to the coach be stuck.
Prince you are-the foot ball man
If you never get the "Can."
Let the spectators then ride!
You come limping at their side!
You have things they cannot claim
A "Charlie Horse," and heaps of fame-
Outward painful, inward joyg
I was once a foot ball boy!
Oh, for boyhood's painless play.
Sleep that wakes in laughing day,
But for him that plays foot ball
Hardly is there sleep at all-
Hurtzs that mock the doctor's rules,
Gained in games with other schools.
Ah! that thou could'st know the joy,
E'er it passes, foot ball boy.

W BASKET BALL .,
'Owing to the fact that basket ball proved a losing game, in two
ways, last year, only one foreign game was played this year. The
game was very interesting and exciting throughout. Wilmoth and
"Red" Hart were the stars.
INTER-CLASS BASKET BALL.
The basket ball season of 1914 was a series of surprises. The
Seniors were virtually conceded the championship at the opening, the
Juniors :second place, the Sophs were thought good enough for third
place, while the Freshieus as usual brought up the tail end.
In the first game the Juniors easily beat the Freshmen 19 to 3, and
lin the safme day a pretty basket by V. Goltry allowed the Seniors to
win from the Sophs 16 to 15.
A Week later the Seniors defeated the Freshmen 41 to 19, W'hi1e
the Juniors had a walkaway on the Sophomores with a score of 41 to 19.
Then came the championship game between the Juniors and Seniors
with even odds. Class spirit was never higher and no such rooting has
ever been heard in the Gym as on that night. The game was sensa-
tional from beginning to end. The first half ended 12 to 12. In the
second 'half the Seniors took the lead and for a while it looked like
they had the game sinched. Then the J uniors rallied and by sensational
team Work overtook and passed the 'Seniors in the last three minutes
of play. The final score was 33 to 25. Wilmotfh and Ford were the
Jugior stars, with V. Goltry and Red Hart holding down the Senior

I'D LIKE TO KNOW.
I'd like to know what makes the world go round most every day
And why the German lafnguage is so hard to learn to say,
And why I have to study, study, study every night,
Until the cock proclaims that it is almost broad day-light.
I'd like to know why I can't learn this stenographic stuff,
And why n1y nnnu win wander when I haven't learned enough.
And why about base-ball I am thinking all the time
When' I ought to be digesting some of lShakespeare's most sublime
I'd like to know why I can't settle down and be right good,
When there's nothing else to do except study as I should,
I'd like to know the reason why I'm asked, the very day
I haven't learned my lesson in the most substantial way.
And Why school stops at two o'clock and I get out at four,
I'd like to know the reason why I have to stay two more.
And why I've written all this foolish stuff that I've just wrote,
Just answer all these questions and you sure can have my "GOAT."
Butler, Lacy-Captain of this years team and the star of the sun gar-
den. A good hitter and steady als a rock
Goltry, Vernie-This is Goltryls second year on the team as star pit-
cher. At Norman he pitched both of the hard games and struck out
twelve men in all.
Gates, Erroll-Gates has pitched good ball so far this year and bids
fair to be better. With a little more confidence in himself he w-ould be a
Harp, Otis-As a catcher "Tots" cannot be beaten and as batter
makes them all hurry to keep in his class.
Wilmoth, E. B--The all round star and short stop of the team, was
never known to drop a hard fiy, and is known as the home run hitter.
Hart,Red.-This is also Red's second year on the team. He is near-
.oaie or a ball and hits well. Made one of the best QLLCHBS aint'
a foul ball ever seen at Norman. A
Bruce, Roy-First baseman and a good hitter. A little lazy, but can
be relied on in a pinch. r
Harmon, Hiram-A good third baseman but is inclined to be a slow
thinker. Another years playing will help him to be a star infielder.
Bingham, Guy-The little man with the big stick. Gave us good
luck at Norman by not wearing a hat or coat to the meet.
Harp, Wilbour-Sub, outfielder who bills fair to be at second Ty.
Francisco, Doc.-Second string catcher who will be a good one to
take the place of Harp. Young in yearis but old in playing.
Moreland, Harry-The man who never misjudges those long flies.
'lhe first baseball game of 1914 was played on the home grounds the
4th day of April between Enid High School and Cherokee High School.
The game resulted in a walkaway for Enid as usual. Although the game
was called at the end of the seventh, so Cherokee could catch a train, the
score was 24 to 4.
The next game was played with Watonga as the victims. Watonga
defeated Enid twice last year, owing to the superior pitching of "Lefty"
Masters, but as he was absent this year Enid easily won. Wilmoth
'knocked two over the fence and Tots Harp succeeded in getting a round
We lost our first game away from home when we played the King-
fisher High School. We were not used to batting against la high wind
and 'only found their pitcher for two hits.
How We Won The State Championship.
We arrived at Norman Friday the 24th to battle for the champion-
ship of the state. In the draw we were pitted with Frederick for the
second game of the series. lt was known that Frederick was using ineli-
gible men, but nevertheless when the game was finished the score was
Enid Erederick 5. It was the first good game of the series. In the
last half of the seventh Bruce succeeded in getting to second and while
stealing third the catcher got the bucks and threw the ball 'away giving
us the winning tally.
After a ten minutes rest we started the second game with Geary.
As we were tired we did not exert ourselves very much so the conse-
quences were the score was not very large. John Bill Harp got one of
the longest hits of the series but being excited he fell down between first
and second and only made la two bagger out of it.
While we were eliminating Frederick 'and Geary other games were
being played which resulted in Mangum being the only other team left,
s-o the championship game was scheduled for Saturday morning at 9:30
between Mangum and Enid.
Saturday was a fine day and bid fair to have ia record breaking
crowd. We protested the game, as we knew that Mangums third base-
man and short stop were professional men, but the protest was overruled.
The game opened with Goltry and 'O. Harp batteries for Enid and Man-
gum at the bat. Mangum led off by scoring one in the first inning. In
the third Enid 'put one across and tied the score. The game was then
one, two, three, and out till the sixth when both teams scored o-ne each.
The game then settled down to a pitchers battle with the odds in favor
of Goltry. Several times both teams had men on bases but could not con-
nect with a hit. Once Enid had two men on bases no one down but the
next three men at bat fa-nned. 'lhe last 'half of the ninth arrived with
the score still tied. Moreland first -up walked, stole second, and advanced
to third on G0ltry's single. On the next ball pitched, with O. Harp at
the bat. Goltry stole second. Mangum then changed pitche-rs and the
first ball pitched Harp hit a two bagger to deep center scoring Moreland
and Goltry. I
After the game the team was invited to the Beta Theta Pi House
where it were treated with dinner and showed a good time.
The team wishes to express its thanks to the rooters who helped us
win at Norman. "Let'er rip" sure sounded good at Norman. People
said on all sides "Enid sure has got the pep." '
The greatest game of the year was 'played between the Seniors and
the Faculty on the High School Athletic Field, April 15, 1914.
The day was very windy and it was a very good thing it was, as
it equalized the wind that the Faculty, with Carey and Farley as leaders,
-were putting out.
The Faculty led off with two scores in the first inning. Wilmotzi, ac-
cidently hit a ball in the air and the wind carried it over the fence Ior a
home run. The Seniors protested but as the unilpire was crooked he
would not allow the protest. When the Seniorsigdfame to the bat they
knocked the Faculty's would-be-bush-leaguer all ovei' the lot, finally getting
so tired after running in sixteen scores they Lslowed down and allowed the
Faculty to get almost fifteen scores. The feature of the game was the
fielding of 'Canavan for the Faculty, the pitching of Bingham for the
Seniors. Bingham hit Thuermer once and succeeded in making Carey
and Farley get out of the way.

O. Harp, Catcher, Billie Canavan, First Base, Wilmoth, Second

A DREAM. A
A pitcher in class sat dreaming, dreaming of the men he'd "fanned"
He saw his catcher's signals fade, and Humps" decision stand.
Over base ball fields he wandered, where heis victories lost and won,
Then turning to his classmate, this is the tale begun.
"I saw Vernie, boy, fan thirteen straight, I saw little "Bink" tag threeg
I saw Tots touch out two at home plate, and the next three came
I saw Everett cover all the field, Harmon fight at third base,
And they all fought for our "Blue and White" in my dream of Enid's
On the bleachers he saw the standing of his gallant "rooter" band.
He heard their voice ring victory, and prestige, thru the land.
He heard their loyal cadence, and he summed a septime pose.
The waking from his reverie, this, from his lips arose.
"I saw Mclntoshs' brilliant 'stab,' on that old initial sack,
I saw Gates 'wind up' three times straight, and three batsmen
walked back 5
I saw Bruce and Butler, shame the sun, Moreland hold his fame,
And the bleachers still retain their 'fpepf' in my dream of this
base ball game."

THE FGUR CREEDS
FR E SH MAN .
I believe in English composition, and in Miss Power, the successful
expoufnider, who is endured by the Freshmen, beloved by the Sophomores,
roasted by the Juniors and forgotten by the Seniors.
I believe in the Freshman class, in its champion marble players, and
in its queens who are surpassed by none in their beauty, wit, or scholar-
I believe in the shaving of the heads of the Freshmen, in the use of
plenty -of green paifnt, and in the further and complete suppression of all
aspiring finst year men. I believe in our football heroes, makers of loy-
alty and fame, and in our basket ball team, which was exposed to many
storms, suffered many losses, yet refused to "give up the ship"' until it
I believe in the class of 1915, and in the ability of each member to
make for himself a record, be it in art, literature, drama or athletics. I
believe in High School life, in football games, and in the latest dances. I
believe in holidays, in just one girl, and in donations from dad. Amen
I believe in the noble Senior, in his prosperity and future happiness,
and in the Blue and White of E. H. S. I believe in the "Jinx,'
and in the ability of the class of ,14 to make it the greatest masterpiece
in American Literature, surpassed only by Shakespeare and the Bible. I
believed in the class of '14 as Freshmen, worshiped them as Sophomores,
swore by them as J uniors, and cling to them as Seniors. Amen.

THE BATTLE OF THE PIPE.
Enthusiastic Talk by E. VVade Before
the Anti-Xicotine League.
Special to the Yellow Jacket.
In the annual anti-nicotine league
contest, held each year in the High
School auditorium, today' E. Wade,
amidst shouts and suore's,.1ianded out
the following talk:
"Gentleman of this great institution
of learning, and my fellow knights of
the corn-cob. I come not before you
a Mark Anthony, but as A. E. Wade
of Enid High. I did not come to
elaborate on the 'beauties of a pipe
dream, but to enlighten you on the
well deserved praise of the corncob.
He who has been misled by the rabfble
of soninambulates and Freshman
should join us and help to swell our
ranks until this conglomeration of
ignorant and innocent beings shall
be forever banished from this land
.Of perpetual sunshine.
Aye, fellow knights, too well do
I know the cravings of the many de-
prived persons lbefore meg but too
well do I know your sentimentsg

E. Wade still had the floor as the
Yellow Jacket goes to press.
Special to the Yellow Jacket.
At the Stand Pat Convention Hall,
last night Chenoweth announced
that he has entered the race as Stand
Pat nominee for Principal of High
School, subject to the approval of
the School Board and the Citizens of
High School. Mr. Chenoweth states
that so many of his friends have asked
him to run and in view of the fact
that he has entirely carried on the
workings of the institution for the
preceding term, he 'lows that he
should receive some remoneration
the form of the loyal support of the
students. An old time, old school
democrat is this fellow Chenoweth.
He is the 'proud owner of an exceed-
ingly bellicose voice, said voice being
voicing most of the time. He re-
-gards his chances as good. If he could
the induced to think said chances were
no good, that would make it unani-
mous. He is of the farmers farm
and member of the 'back-to-nature
cure, and Cincinatus like, he would
leave the plow stand in the garden
and hie himself to the helm of our
most noted knowledge factory and run
the said school as aforesaid said.

low Jacket will give a solid gum drop.

ALL SCHOOL TEAM.
Now that the foot-ball season is
over we have decided to follow the
precedence cet by other great papers
and choose our All School Team. Af-
ter considering the iield and with :1
great deal of sympathy we should like
to submit the following as our choice.
Left End ............... P. Hodgden
Left Tack1e--- ------- C. McIntosh
Left Guard ..--------.-.- D. Cullison
Center ...---..-.----- --F. Winkins
Right Guard -------------- J. Hopley
Right Tackle -------------- Williams
Right End ------ ------ W , Shockley
Right Half -------------- H. Harman
Left Half ---------------- C. Tribible
Quarter--.. ---- -- ---------- L. Shaw
Full Back ---- .- ------- ---D. Cotton
In choosing a team the spurt editor
has had a time dodging small brivbes
and arguing for larger ones. Due to
dry weather a great many of our best
men have had to stop school, while a
few were unable to survive the hot
weather and died.
A brief synopsis will verify the fol-
lowing statement: That team is good
in one sense, but in another is punk.
Frank Wilkins was chosen Center
because he seems to be the only
person that is so fat that he can't clap
his hands together.
We will leave Mclntosh on Left
Ta ckle because of his childish ways
and his fondness for American History.
ln the Left Guard stall we'll herfl
Cullison because he is the best all-
around heavy weight fusser in school.
Perry Hodgden ii nominated Lelt
End, since he is an A. No. 1 girl
Harman and Tribble are chosen
halves because they bear a resem-
blance to two sofa pillow punchers.
For the plunging Full Back only
one person could fill the shoes. Doyle
Cotton because of his aloility to rush
Williams, Right Tackle. He is the
only real and unadulterated nearc
breaker on the team.
Leslie Shaw was placed at Quartei-
because the Editor could find no other
that matches him in oratory.
To keep the weight in a High School.
class, Pee Wee Hopley was chosen as
Any man that is classed as a keen
lover of sports will agree that the
above team should make a mark in

sistently in his position.

It came to ipass in the reign of Prince Thuermer, that certain Pages
were in the habit of flirting with Lady Nicotine, in the spacious halls of
the Castle. When the matter reached his Lordship's ears he waxed ex-
ceedingly wrathful and immediately issued an edict calling a meeting of
the men of the realm. After conferring with King Jacoby, they called
together his Miajestyls High Custodians of Peace and Order, Beheader
and Jester, and decreed that he who should be convicted of the crime,
should be banished from the realm forever. At the meeting were heard
many speeches by the leading orators of the four generations. In the
speech of the great Prince Thuermer many words of wisdom were passed,
and he expressed himself as very favorably impressed with the conduct
of his subjects in ignoring Lady Nicotine.
F. G.: 'fNo! I like you very much indeed, but can never marry a spend-
Louie: "How do you kno-w I am a spendthriftf'
F. G.: "By the way you have been wasting money on me."
'One day after the first heavy snow in February, Mr. Thuermer was
seen on his way to school, early in the morning. Presently turning around
and seeing his footprints inn the snow, he was heard to say: "By George,
If George Washington were living today, and were to out down the
cherry tree, and his father should appear on the scene, as of old, George
would probably answer his accusation thus:
"I humbly ask your pardon, my reverett father. I acknowledge

complished it with my diminutive hatchetf'
