Text from Pages 1 - 180 of the 1915 volume:

d uill Annual X915 VOLUME V Ah! Our school-days now are over, Yes, another year ' s gone by; Schoolmates, some are gone forever, Gone from dear old Enid High. But we still may see their faces Still remember days of yore, When old father time advances, And they dwindle more and more. Just take out the dear old Annual, Turn its pages one by one, ' Twill bring back sweet recollections, Full of laughter, joy and fun. 3 With this Volume the Nineteen-Fifteen Annual Staff greets you. We have attempted to treat everyone honestly and j ustly, and to show Enid High School as it really is. Whether we have succeeded in this or not remains for you to judge; but to all your criticisms we have but the one reply to make, that is " we have done our best. " To Carolina UJ. Ij owet head of the EngHsh department and Supervisor of the Quill and Annual this volume is respectfully dedicated in appreciation of her services to our school. - - - - To the student not far removed on either side from Graduation Day, Enid High School is the embodiment of all school sentiment, tradi- tions and ideals. The name, Enid High School, expresses the aggregate of all that goes to make up student life and it has a peculiar charm. As the years go by and school life becomes less a reality, and more and more an incident to the development of the life that follows, E. H. S. still holds a first place in the aff ' ections, because of that intangible something called spirit, which interprets the conception of life in E. H. S. The spirit of Enid High School stands for idealism. In fact, spirit- everywhere is idealistic. Every workman with the true ideal struggles to become the master of his art, and by his zeal he learns to step out of and above the common. Every art, every literature, every science has had master craftsmen, inspired by idealism and truth. Music has had its Mendelssohn and its Beethoven ; painting, its Rembrambt and its Raphael ; literature is Vergil, its Schiller, its Shakespeare and its Milton ; history, its Herodotus and its Gibbon ; science, its Darwin and its Pasteur. To know the master craftsmen and their work, is the purpose of life in Enid High School, and it is the purposeful spirit of E. H. S. produced in the student, that brings to him the light to see the master artist in his field. To each student who comes to E. H. S., there is a particular work; there is opportunity, if he has the ability to grasp it. If he is enterpris- ing and earnest, he will become imbued with the spirit which pervades the school, which will give him the inspiration and strength to reach out and up. In catching the spirit for himself he creates it for others. That student who studies to learn the true spirit of E. H. S., becomes an heir of all the past, and what each master has done with toil and hard- ship, is his abundantly. He who learns to know the spii ' it is victor, be- cause all victory is the outgrowth of spirit. When in the days to come, the spirit of E. H. S. is felt in the heart of every student, Enid High School will receive the gratitude due her from those who learned from her the ideal of service; and each worker, while giving his best, will live to the ideals of truth and honor which she has fostered. — Caroline Power. ) SUE ELIZEBETH BUCKNER English and History DeWITT WALLER Science and Athletics 13 WM.

CECIL JUNE YOUNG. For me the past has no regret. I III I I I I Ttxiov Class Hftstaru of 10 15 HENRY BASS resinent Yvom the shores of the Canadian, From the shining big sea water Came the little Hiawatha, Came to visit in our city. He had heard down in the Southland Of dear Enid, the best High School; ,0f the grand old Senior Class there; For its fame spread o ' er the country And the stories made him ponder, J Made him long to see our High School. Out of childhood into manhood Now had grown our Hiawatha, Skilled in all the craft of hunters. Learned in all the lore of old men. So he said to old Nokomis, " Ere I go to Mudjekeewis At the doorways of the West-wind, At the portals of the Sun-set, I would like to pay a visit To that wondrous place of learning To complete my education. " So he left the far-off Southland And arrived within our borders; • . And I met young Hiawatha, As he wandered through our building. And his eyes were large with wonder. " Tell me, " cried he, " of your High School; Tho ' Fve heard her praises boasted, Yet would I learn from her children, All the glories of your High School. " After he had seen the building, With its trophies of our battles, Much perplexed by various feelings, Listened to our song of triumph. Then I led him to the chapel. There I showed him all the classes. And I said to Hiawatha, " If I were to try to tell you All about our wondrous High School It would take me, yes, forever. " But he stopped me short and asked me, " Who are those down in the front rows With the learning of the ages Written on their youthful faces f And I answered Hiawatha, 35 " If you love a High School legend, Love the ballads of our High School, Listen to this class ' s history. To great 1915 ' s history. " So I told to Hiawatha How in 1911 we came here, And in days of strife that followed. Bright-eyed Cully, our grave president. Blessed and cheered us ever onward; How our boys, so brave and fearless. Won the championship in Football, And were victors in the flag scrap; After days of glorious fighting, When the air was filled with shouting. And the earth shook with the tumult And our old flag still was flapping Like a tall tree in the tempest. How our bright and witty women For the profit of our High School, For advantage of its children. Wrote the famous " Novel Novel, " And began a wondrous custom That should last through generations. Then I told the little Indian How the blithe and pleasant Spring-time Calling to us from the distance, Made us long for haunts of Nature, For the meadows and the cornfields; And I told him of our picnic How we happily did wander. Thru the green and pleasant meadows, Gathering buttercups and daisies. By a streamlet in the meadow; How the shadows soon did gather And the rain came down in torrents; For the wrath of the Great Spirit Fell upon the merry-makers; Told us that the day was ended. In the time of harvest gathering Once again we came to High School From the three months ' gay vacation Spent in fishing and in dreaming; And the thrifty class of Sophomores Made a record that will stand here; Found these legends and traditions, Found these songs of Enid High School; And they showed their good sound judgment When they chose our pretty Sarah, Fair and tall and slender maiden, With the beauty of the starlight; With the beauty of the moonlight; And the loving " Laughing Water " Took the honors of the great year When the English flag was given To our class again victorious. In debate we, too, were famous; Burt and Meinhardt were our siDeakers, Spoke to us with words majestic. And the grand old year was ended With a picnic and a drenching As it happened in the first year. You shall hear, 0 Hiawatha, Of our jolly -Junior President. You shall hear of our great " Hienie, " Famous for his great orations; How he guided us with bravery Not for triumphs in the High School And renown among the Juniors, But for profit of the High School, For advantage of its children. Basketball again found favor And the team was ne ' er forgotten. With its players staunch and gallant, With the lightness of the birch-tree, With the toughness of the cedar. And their bravery was rewarded With a loving cup of silver. As gay Juniors still another Trophy won we to our honor, For the third time we had conquered; Won the English flag to keep now. Next our banquet of the year came With its list of famous speakers. 1 ' or the high and mighty Juniors Gave a banquet in their honor. All the Seniors came and feasted, Long they lingered at the table Singing songs and giving toasts there; And the merry dance that followed Kept them there ' til early morning. Swift the days were speeding onward. And again it was September, And again we came to High School, For our last year ' s work and play here. Our election soon was over And again we chose our " Hienie " As a guide thru this our last year. So we started with a spirit, And again " E " s won in football; All the football men were heroes, Evert was their gallant captain. On the stage we had great actors And they played m the " iVuss Bob hite. ' Adah, with a voice majestic, Sang and all the people listened; All the High School came to hear her. One staunch sweetheart had our Adah, Singled out from all the others. And to Doyle she gave her true heart And he wooed her with caresses, Vooed her with his smile of sunshine With his flattering words he wooed her; With his sighing and his singing. And his comrade tramp, young Carl, In his heart one sorrow had he; Day by day his heart within him, Grew " more hot with love and longmg For a maid with yellow tresses. (In the play), she loved a " Jackie, " Evert, best of all musicians. For her gentleness he loved her. For the magic of her singing. After that the days passed swiftly; All too soon the end was nearmg. And the hearts of all the Seniors Filled with sorrow at the parting, When they gave their long-held places To the class of 1916. " Tell me now, 0 Hiawatha, Do you wonder that the Seniors Are so proud of their achievements; Of the faultless daring spirit. Of the honors and the trophies, ■ Of the knowledge and the learning ? And the little Hiawatha. Answered me with eyes a glowing, " What a marvelous class it has been. ' Homeward, then, went Hiawatha, To portals of the West V ind, To his father, Mudjekeewis, And his days of higher learning Were accomplished and completed; But the place was not forgotten. Where he gained his long-sought knowled In the halls of Enid High School, From the grand old Senior Class there. 83 You who belong to the high school, that long in our memory lingers, You who continue your studies in Enid, the school of our reverence, Think what we now wish to give you, what honors commend to your keeping ; Ponder it well in your hearts, the charge you are now undertaking, Give to your school and your work the best gift nature has given ; Strive to keep bright the good name your school has won among many : Ever do all in your power to exchange that good name for a better. Then when you ' ve finished your work, have ended your school life in Enid, You ' ll be gladdened much more by her praise because you have helped her deserve it.

JUNIORS I came from the land called Eldorado, the land oi ' sunshine and flowers. A beautiful country is my home, where none but kings and queens live. One day I was on the seashore and became interested in the bubbles on the water. I stepped on one of them, and splash, it broke and I fell into the big wide, wide sea. I guess 1 was so small that the sea couldn ' t feel me, so I was carried away, away off from Eldorado. I must have been on the water a long, long time, for I was almost asleep, when I bumped into a great big something. 1 looked around me ; the water was gone, and I was left on an island, alone, so far as I could see. After a while I saw some large object moving toward me. I didn ' t know what to do, for there was no place to hide, so I just ran as fast as I could toward it. I saw it was a fairy, too, but my, how aw- fully large he was. He told me his name was Percivale, and he took me to the Castle of Alindoria. When asked my name and whence I came, I said: " I am Queen Elizabeth, and I came from Eldorado. " Percivale told me they had school in this castle. He said that there were four classes: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior, and that he was chief executive and ruler over the Freshman Class. I never saw such a peculiar fairyland before. East of the castle was a vast forest, where the fairies would often hide . To the north and west lay prairies, stretching for miles and miles. To the south was a great playground, with a strong, high wall all around it. There was one fairy, who was a member of the Freshman Class, who was liked by all. She was beautiful and charming. I often won- dered why she should be treated so royally by the other fairies. 1 found out, one evening, when I went to the playhouse. She was Prin- cess Bulbul. I was one day in the castle when the Princess passed by and gave me a paper. On the outside was written, " Novel Novel. " I did not understand what this meant, so I asked Percivale and he told me it was a story-book written by members of the Freshman Class, and that the story had four chapters; the first was written by Loene, the second by Helen, the third by Arilla, and the fourth by Edna. The name of the story was " June Dodson ' s Lesson. " The next year after my arrival many fairies came to Putoria from another country. They had not yet become accustomed to the iaws of this land, when Percivale devised a plan by which each one of the newcomers could know the law. He just waved his magic wand and the leaves fell from the trees, on which were inscribed the iaws of the land These leaves were scattered everywhere, so that no one would fail to see them. I thought they were the funniest laws I had p-e seen. It seemed to me they were so harsh. One of them said, " No Freshman, under any circumstances whatsoever, shall be per- mitted to hold any conversation with a Sophomore girl. " In Eldorado we could talk with anyone we wanted to, and the laws didn ' t mtertere. The people of Putoria did so many queer things. vVhen they played they were so rough. One day several of them got to running, and they ran here, there and everywhere. They ran a very long dis- tance When they had all returned, it was announced that bpeedy, as he was called, which seemed a very appropriate name, was the fastest runner " Speedy " had disappeared, but Percivale had only to speak the word, wave his wand, and he came forth from a beautiful cup, which was made of silver with a gold lining. Time had now come for me to go to the playhouse again, and there I saw another one of those under " the rule of Percivale, whose real name was Zella, appear as Mrs. Reno Grass, a merry widow chaperon, and she played with " Verdant Green. " One day I was skipping along and I stubbed my toe against something that looked like a piece of paper folded. I picked it up and unfolded it and read " Sophomore Paper. " This was a paper written by the same class that wrote the " Novel Novel, " and they were now closing their Sophomore year, as I was told by the Princess. Of all the funny things I saw, the funniest was a game they played with a great big brown something— I hardly know how to de- scribe it— they called it football. Sometimes they would run ffter a terribly dirty fairy and when they caught him they would all fall right down on him. The king, Percivale, became so interested m this rough game that he could no longer act as king, so a new one, Emil, was chosen. One day I saw several boys with heavy blue coats on and on the fronts were large " Es. " The Princess and Emil passed by and I heard him say, " There are five Junior boys who won their ' Es ' — ' Tots, ' ' John Bill, ' ' Speedy, ' Russ ' and ' Percivale. ' " They played another game with a ball that looked something like the football. This game was played by throwing the ball into a basket that was away, way up high. I thought Fd try to throw it into the basket, so I nicked the ball ud, but it was too heavy for me. T dropped it ' and rolled over and over on it several times. I was told that the Junior and Senior Classes were playing for the Inter-Class Cham- pionship, which I did not understand. I do know that one morning J saw another beautiful cup — I do not know what these cups are for — and there was a funeral, but the funniest funeral I ever saw. The mourners all came in smiling instead of crying. I did not see any dead fairy, but they came in with something and they had signs all around the coffin. This was all so peculiar to me. I couldn ' t understand it, but I guess it was all right there in Putoria. I heard someone say, " No wonder we won the championship when we have Shy for our basketball captain. " Back to the playhouse, I saw the beautiful Princess again play her part to perfection. I also saw the new king take part in the play, this time. I couldn ' t understand why they went to a house to piay. They danced and skipped about just as we do on the flowers and trees. There was one fairy who was tall and slim, but he was hand- some and had a strong, commanding voice. He was going to anothei country to talk about wages — something about wages that I didn ' t un- derstand at all. Anyway, his name was Samuel, and he was going to take two others with him, Merrick and Frederick. I would like to have remained with the 1916 Class until they left the island, but I heard that there were sharks there, so I left it, because I didn ' t want to be eaten by one. opl|nmorp Class The most brilliant class in all E. H. S., Class loyalty we show with true zest. Our proverbial wisdom is not hard to find, For we excel in both body and mind. We ' ll always uphold the old white and blue, Like students so faithful, so strong and so true. Sidney Fetherston was our first class president, He has in old Enid some time been a resident. Sidney Fetherston ' President Also for our vice-president we then chose, Miss Lillian Rentchler, whom everyone knows. The next of importance was Pauline Hembree, She proved a good treasurer and " secretaree. " Our modest class colors were yellow and white. My, but we Freshies were certainly bright! On that memorable day of our fourth chapel We brave little Freshmen gave our first yell. " Gee-Haw, Gee-Haw, Gee-Haw, Haw, Haw, Freshmen, Freshmen, ' Rah! ' Rah! ' Rah! " The first great event was the yearly class fight, When we beat the Sophomores one dark, wintry night. In football " E " s were won by two Freshman boys On the E. H. S. team, adding much to our joys. Our captain of football was Newton Weatherly He made a good captain, as you will agree. In basketball also we did splendid work. Each player played well, his part did not shirk. Then the Freshman picnic was quite a success. Did we have any fun ? Well, I should say yes! 51 And so, we thus closed a successful school year The best class of Freshies of whom you will hear. And after three months of good summer vacation, We came back to school quite without hesitation. And now we are Sophomores. We ' re Freshmen no mon A fine class of Sophomores, as I ' ve said before. We ' re so energetic, so joyful and free. Such a good class of " Sophies " you ' ll ne ' er again see. Sidney, again our president we made; For all of his duties, he nothing is paid. Then also we chose little Miss Ruth Whitson As secretary and treasurer she keeps all our " mon. " And for our class colors we chose white and green The prettiest colors that ever were seen. In football this year our team surely is fast; In future years, too, our playing will last. Our basketball team ,that is good, as you see. Although we ' re not champions, we some day will be. At our Sophomore party all had lots of fun. And some of the students drank punch by the ton. Our class is quite talented, — that you all know ; A large number took part in the " grand opera " show. Why we have Cliffe Dodd, whose readings are fine, And the Foglesong girls with voices divine. Then there ' s Robert Simons, who ' s on the Quill Staff; And witty " Red " Ball, at whom we all laugh. And also Merrill Hoyt in Geometry shines " One Hundred " Louise Bierbower repeatedly finds. For our class advisor we chose Miss Buckner. We follow suggestions as given by her. 52 And then Willa Buttorf is our Latin " Shark. " And Miss Edith Goltry comes up to the mark.

" Oh, Lee, look at the poor httle birdie I found, " cried wee Naomi, pityingly tender, as she came toward her brother, holding m the cup of her httle hands a small lifeless fluff of feathers stretched in tiny ma- jesty, mute and appealing in its death. " Oh, the poor little thing! Where did you get it, Naomi. " " " Right here under the little cotton-wood we planted, Lee. Don ' t you think we had better bury it. ' " Yes, I suppose so. You get a little box to put it in and I ' ll dig a grave right ' here under the cotton- wood where you found it. " The tiny burden was lowered into the grave solemnly and the da mp soil was thrown over the box with no other mourners than the two. One other, not a mourner but a watcher, crept stealthily forward within a few paces of the little grave and paused with nice calculation until the funeral procession had retired. " Lee-e! Naomi! Supper! " An enticing call from across the street was the occasion for the abrupt dismissal of the ceremonies. " Wouldn ' t he just love to be sitting in the branches now, Lee, chirping, ' stead ' o being in his grave, ' ' mourned Naomi compassionately, tightly clasping her brother ' s hand in fear of the dangers of the wide, dusty road. " Yes, but he never will again, now. " " Not unless the cotton-wood fairy brings him back to life. He could then, couldn ' t he, Lee. " " Yes, then he could. Here we are. Tell mother I ' ll be right in ' The boy turned and looked back toward the diminutive cotton-wood just in time to see the hitherto unobserved watcher leap away into the busheg with the bird ' s crushed body in her mouth, daring him with a backward look to catch her. But he knew the uselessness of that. " I must fix the grave though, for it would break Naomi ' s heart it she knew. " He recrossed the street, returned the box to the grave and covered it again with damp earth. " Oh, Lee, we ' re going to have pot-pie for supper made out of partridges. Aren ' t you glad. ' And Oh! Mother! We buried a poor little dead birdie under the cotton-wood this afternoon. Didn ' t we, Lee? " Lee icquipsced solemnly but looked at his mother and smiled. Naomi did not recognize the incongruity of the pathos of the burial and the enthusiasm over the partridge pie. But then, that did not matter. That is the way life trains us. The next day when the children returned to the vacant lot, a sparrow sat chirping in the branches of the little cotton-wood. 60 " Oh, Lee, it must be that the fairies have brought him back to life, ' ' cried Naomi, jumping up and down out of sheer happiness, and then, as the sparrow flew away, she made a bound toward the grave and shamelessly uncovered the box. " Oh, oh, oh, Lee, " she shouted, " They have! they have! they have! It isn ' t here any more at all. " " Yes, " assented the boy, thoughtfully looking after the sparrow. " It certainly seems as if it must be. We ' ll always believe in fairies after this, won ' t we Naomi. " Many years passed. The cottonwood grew and waxed strong. Many birds came to build their nests and rear their young in it and pour forth their songs of thankfulness in memory of the children who planted and cared for it. One day a man came with a three legged instrument that looked like a camera. Soon there came others with shiny tin pails and picks, and among them was the boy who many years before had planted the cottonwood. At noon they all sat down under the gigantic tree to rest and eat. They were all regretful that the tree must go ; it was so won- derfully great, and each one hesitated as to which should strike the first blow. The boy sat thinking of his sister. For a long time she had lain almost motionless in her little white bed at home, and today, the doctor said she would begin to get better, — or die. He wished that he might be there with his mother and sister when the moment came, but there was no one to pay the doctor if he did, so he had to eat his lunch that day beneath the cottonwood. He had forgotten the planting of it. Hp did not recognize the tree in all its loftiness, and he but vaguely heard the regrets of the men that it must be chopped down. A sudden burst of song caused him to look up and the figure of a tiny brown bird met his gaze. The song of happiness made him flinch. He looked b ck to earth with tears in his eyes, and there, under the tree lay a dead bird, the prototype of the one in the tree. He picked it up reverently and looked across the street toward the little house where they had lived so haopily years before. A sleek cat lazily emerged from the door, and then he remembered. His mind came back after a time to realities. He then knew the tree beneath which he had lunched. It stretched its limbs uroudly, fifty feet above his head. A breeze stir red its branches and it whispered com- fortingly to him. An hour later it was stretched out along the roadway in magnificience, splendid in its death, and he told his story, claiming the tree. He went home fearful that night for he knew that if the fairies took his sister they would never bring her back. The afternoon seemed almost a mockery to that afternoon many years before when he had taught his sister that the fairies were good and had probably brought the sparrow back to life. , 61 His mother was at the door awaiting him. He could say nothing, but she understood and smiled. " She has been sleeping peacefully for two hours and he says she will live. " " Oh mother, " he sobbed. After all the years that he had taught his sister to believe in fairies, he suddenly believed in them himself. He believed that they could make people happy and he told his mother so. For davs he worked many hours at a time, chopping and chopping the Cottonwood. When he brought his sister the rustic chair, he told her the story as he knew it. Then he and his mother filled the chair with pil- lows and carried her out to watch the sun set. " I didn ' t know. I thought I might have to make it into a long box instead, Naomi, " he told her shyly. " But you didn ' t. One thing though, you ' ve gained a belief m fairies while I ' ve lost all of mine by your story. " She smiled m refuta- tion of her remark, however, as she said, looking happily iivto his eyes, " Aren ' t you glad that there are fairies? " Susannah Wheeler, ' 17. E. H. S.

He hurled a paper wad through the air, What mark it left, he did not care, But " teacher " was coming down toward him And it struck her just beneath the chin. She spoke a phrase of great scarcasm. And then he almost had a spasm; 62 For who has mind so free from spleen, That he can endure a talk so keen. Long, long afterward for a joke, He told of the cruel things she spoke, And she of the paper wad thrown by him That hit her just beneath the chin. —Edna McCarty, ' 15. ■X- CHANGES. Spring is coming.

X THE PEOPLE OF THE DARKNESS. I wander down a narrow street And see on every side. Dim painted wraiths of people Who are living yet have died. At every turn I meet a face That speaks of soil and care 1 II ,k i I 63 Whose very life seems useless And whose hopes chance to despair. Our selfishness has burrowed deep Within these forms of woe; It is for us they work and weep, That we the joys may know. I hurry on and on Down an unfrequented way, To pass a little sunless court, Where ragged children play. What know they of the joys of life, Who scarce the sunshine feel, Deep in the murk and scum of things They wander at our will. Who are these plantoms that we see In every step we trace? The people of the darkness, these The outcasts of the race. OPTIMISM. An optomist is a person. Who really truly believes, That a student ' s life in High School Is a life of bliss and ease. The editor has pondered deep, The Annual to fill. He cannot eat ; he cannot sleep For thinking of the Quill. Material is scarce as yet. He hardly finds a line.

Mr. Stackable acted as director and gave the Forun: that high ideal that is embodied in the preamble of its constitution — " To obtain a greater proficiency in the art of public expression; to lay the foundation for effective citizenship, and to pro mote a good fellowship and a fraternal spirit among its fellows. " It feels that it has accomplished a higher proficiency in public speaking because of the fact that one half of the High School ' s debators was from the Forum. Not only in debating has it promoted that art but by impromptu speaking and by practice in parliamentary drill every member of the society has made improvement and progress toward that end. . The weekly programs which were given by the society served as a purpose for studying the questions that now confront the public, and by this study of political and social conditions the society has certainly " laid the foundation for effective citizenship. " During the year the Forum enjoyed several social events. The first was a banquet in honor of the new members. A few weeks later the Erodelphian invited the Forum to a " Taffy Pull " which proved to be one of the most enjoyable everts of the year. At Christmas time the Erodelphian, Websterian and Forum held a joint meeting in the Auditorium after which a banciuet was served in the Cafeteria. Several other events of a social nature will be held during the year. All these events have served " to promote good fellow- ship " among the individual members of the society and between the For- um and the other two societies of the school. The work of the Forum has been materially aided this year by building up a library for the members and in fact the librarv is now the greatest asset of the society. If the Forum continues the course that it has followed this year and continues to choose its members with that care that has characterized it in the past, the society will always continue to prosper. The officers of the society are: William Kornbaum President Samuel Braden Vice President Robert Simons Secretary Emil Leshe Treasurer Leonard Jett Sergeant Geo.

From the very first day of school a spirit of unity and enthusiasm was evident among the members, which was highly indicative of success. This, together with the energy and ability of the first president, Mr. Howard Hoover, soon placed the society upon a solid running basis. Weekly meetings were held thruout the year, at which commendable work in debate, parliamentary law and impromptu speaking was carried out. The first event of real importance was the Inter-Society Debate. The Websterian was represented by Fred Gibson, Clarence Meinhardt and Howard Hoover, who won a unanimous decision from the Forum; arguing the aff ' irmative side of the Woman Suff ' rage Question. To advertise the Wichita football game, the Athletic Association ofl ' ered a prize to the class or club putting on the most clever and origi- nal " stunt " on the Square. Our society demonstrated how the apposing team would appear and act after the game. It was indeed well-worked out and won the prize. Inasmuch as debate occupied much attention, it was not long be- fore all eyes were turned toward the High School try-out. A keen spirit of friendly rivalry was rife between the societies. Out of the eight men who tried out from the Websterian Society, Fred Gibson, Merrick Evans and Clarence Meinhardt made the High School team, and Howard Hoover and Lee Cromwell were chosen alternates. The following officers were elected for the second semester, and carried out the society ' s policies in a very successful manner: President Floyd Tucker Vice-President Merrick Evans Secretary Francis Byerley Treasurer Russell Henry Sergeant Percy Porter- Quill Reporter -- Fred Gibson Annual Reporter Clarence Meinhardt Faculty Director Mr. W.

CN 70 Vera Hoyt President Mary Tribble Vice-President Gertrude Shaw Secretary ; Ava Cameron Treasurer We of today are living: in an agre of revolution. The world has now reached the place in its movements where things can no longer remain in their old position. In each succeeding decade a more and more surprising change is taking place and in each change it is always the woman who is coming to the front. The world is beginning to real- ize that in this age the woman is a force which will take a vital part in the affairs of the nation. In ancient times the woman was not even considered in national life, and was no important factor in the home, but as the work of civ- ilization came on, the position of the woman became more and more important. It is only in recent years that women have been encouraged or even allowed in institutions of higher education, but now it is no unusual matter at all for a girl to represent her school in intellectual contests of various kinds. In view of the fact that women hold such a place in the outside world, it is not surprising that in High School, instead of debating socie- ties for the boys alone, the girls ' literary societies stand on an equal footing with the boys ' . The Erodelphian Society was established in the year 1913 for the purpose of furnishing an intellectual center for the girls of Enid High School who wish to participate in some work of development outside of their regular school work. It has also for its aim the furtherance of high ideals among its members and those students with whom they come in contact. During this year, the Club has in its meetings from week to week, discussed the leading topics of the day in the form of current events for roll call, papers and talks by the members on topics of special interest and by debates. The lighter vein has been furnished and at the same time the art of thinking quickly has been developed by extempora- neous talks and debates. In the past year the Erodelphian has not only made itself felt in school, but has established a foundation for a Society which will be a vital force in the life of Enid High School.

EN 72 In order to create the most harmonious feeling and hence obtain the best results in a school the size of Enid High School no other thing is so necessary as the co-operation of the students. The school which is the training place of the nation should be a good one. As the rule for the government of the nation is " government by the people, for the people and of the people, " so should be the government of the school. To bring this about Enid High School has adopted a new method this year, the organization of a Student Council. The Student Council is not a new institution. They have been in use for several years in colleges and schools of higher education where the attendance is large. However, many high schools have not as yet taken up this plan of government. Thus Enid High has taken one step more along the steady road of advancement, which she has been rapidly traveling this year. The Athletic Association constitution provides for a council to be composed of the president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and of- ficial yell leader of the Athletic Association; the presidents of the fout classes; the presidents of the Websterian, Porum and Erodelphian Lit- erary Societies, and the managers oi tne various athletic teams. These diff ' erent departments are represented by Doyle Cotton who is president of the Athletic Association and also of the Student Council; Samuel Braden, vice-president; Sarah Godschalk, secretary; Mr. Price, treasurer; Douglas Cullison, otficial yell leader; Henry Bass, president of benior Class ; Emil Leslie, president of Junior Class ; Sidney Fetherston, president of Sophmore Class ; and William Coates, president of Freshman Class ; Howard Hoover, Websterian President ; Joe Ash, Forum ; and Vera Moyt, Erodelphian; Walter Goltry, manager of the Football Team: Harold Butler, Boys ' Basket Ball; Vera Hoyt, Girls ' Basket Ball; Albert Reinhardt, Base Ball; Newton Weatherly, Track. At the election of the new presidents for the Literary Societies, Floyd Tucker and William Kornbaum were taken into the council. This form of student rule has proved very successful. All of the members of the Student Council are students who are willing to do good hard work for the benefit of their school and throughout the year have helped in raising the standard of Enid High School. The institution is a worthy one and will probably be carried out thru all the succeeding years. 73 Annual B batp Of all the events of the High School year, there is none that should command support more than the annual debate. Enid High School produced two all victorious debating teams this year. This was due to the ever increasing interest taken in debate and the friendly competitive enmity of the two literary societies. In the de- bate with Logan County High School, the negative team, consisting of Sam Braden, Merrick Evans, and William Kornbaum, won a unanimous decision at home, while the affirmative, Fred Gibson, Clarence Mein- hardt and Doyle Cotton, easily carried off the honors of the day at Guthrie. The Negative team was coached by Mr. John Bass, and the affirmative by Mr. W. P. Canavan. The subject discussed was aK economic question, " Resolved that appropriate Minimum Wage Legisla- fon be enacted in the United States, constitutionality granted. ' Enid High School came back this year with strong support for her debating teams, and such a successful and able team was worthy of the excellent support given it. X DEBATE COACHES. William P. Canavan the coach of the Enid High School debating team comes from the Southwestern State Normal. He was on the de- bating team three years and never lost a debate. This is his second year in Enid ■ High. Last year though he coached only the negative team, that team won the championship of Guthrie, Chickasha, and Enid, because of the excellent training which it received at his hands. Thi year he coached the affirmative team. John H. Bass is the co-director of debate in Enid High. This is his first year in E. H. S. He is a graduate of Baker University. In that institution he established his fame as a powerful debator. He was a member of the noted team which won a unanimous decision against Washburn last year. He coached the negative team this year.

A chorus con- sisting of about one hundred members meets every morning before the regular school session. Altho the majority of the voices are untrained, the cultivation which they have received under the direction of Miss Gar- nett has been of a most beneficial character, as evidenced by the music rendered by this large club. The Girls ' Glee Club is of excellent material this year. Their first public appearance was in chapel at the beginnin g of the school year, when their excellent harmony and great ability was shown. The club sang at the annual debate with Guthrie, as did also the Boys ' Glee Club, and won great applause and appreciation. This ' club consists of the following twenty-one members : Sopranos, Edith Harkins, Gladys Clay, Faye Campbell, Helen Crooks, Neva Dun- worth, Evelyn Elgin, Edna Garnett, Sarah Godschalk, Zella McCristy, Aileen Meibergen, Lucille Richards and Ada Stephenson ; Altos, Bessie Brooks, Helen Blakeslee, Gladys Campbell, Florence Foglesong, Mona Foglesong, Eva Francisco, Adelene Johnson, Lillian Rentchler, and Viola Sater; Pianist, Irene Ingle. From these there were sixteen chosen to represent E. H. S. at Norman. The Boys ' Glee Club also does great credit to E. H. S. It is noted for its harmony and good training, tho the majority are of new ma- terial. There are twenty-two members in the club. The tenors are Paul Blattler, Harold Butler, Sidney Fetherston, Joe Goltry, Vernie Goltry, Melville Harris, Evert Wilmoth, William Wicker and Shy Mun- ger; the basses. George Athey, Floyd Burt, Doyle Cotton, Carl Ford. Walter Goltry, Paul Gummerson, Howard Hoover, Gilbert Morton, Will D. Pitman, Robert Simons, Richard Tripplet and Lowell Loudermilk: pianist, Irene In le. Sixteen of these members were chosen to repre- sent E. H. S at Norman. The Orchestra is one of the leading organizations of the school. It is composed of a membership of talented musicians, who are, Harry Arnold, cornet; Fred Claiborne, first violin; Valeria Evans, first violin; William Smart, second violin; Walter Gist, bass viol; Paul Gummerson. trombone; Irene Ingle, pianist; and the director Miss Maud Garnett. The orchestra has appeared a number of times and once especially showed its great ability when the operetta was given. A member or two of this body went to Norman. 81 MISS BOB WHITE The most successful affair ever given by the High School was " Miss Bob White, " an operetta of three acts, by Willard Spencer, given by the music department on February 19th and 20th, under the direction of Miss Garnett.

This year ' s publica- tions have eclipsed those of preceeding years. The work of every de- partment has been so developed as to make " The Quill " of this year the largest and most interesting ever put out by any other staff. A new fea- ture is the use of cuts of prominent persons connected with Enid High School such as the Superintendent, Principal, coaches, football boys and debating directors.

X " THE QUILL. " . The greatest booster that we have m E. H. S. Art thou, oh harbinger of all good news. Thy value to the school cannot be less Than our athletic youths; with many a knock and bruise They battle for the fair old name of E. H. S. Great things by you doth signify thy name ±n verse or tale. The deeds of Enid High are told. And spread to foreign schools the gospel of her fame, That they might marvel at our victories so bold, And of their meagre triumphs keenly feel their shame. This wondrous magazine installs and thus creates An everlasting pride in the old White and Blue, To further interest in music and debate. In all athletics where they fight so hard, so true. Enthusiasm, is its desire to stimulate. Thus on its way it goes, eight times thruout the year Telling the news in manner fine, in joke or tales. In verse or article, to all the students here; To make them wonder, marvel, laugh, or smile; it fails Not in the least, so that ' s why it to them, is dear. THE SOPHOMORE. Following the example set by five previous Sophomore Classes, the class of ' 16 produced this year a semi-monthly newspaper extending over a period of two months. The staff selected by the " Sophs " to put out this publication was : Harold Godschalk, Editor-in-Chief; Robert Simons, Busmess Manager; Harold Ball, Humor ; Merrell Hoyt, Athletics ; Louise Bierbower , Society. The Sophomore Class are to be congratulated on the most excel- lent material in this paper, and the publication as a whole proves that the class of ' 17 possesses extraordinary literary ability. -X FRESHMAN NOVEL. It has been the custom for the past several years for the Fresh- man Class to produce a Novel consisting of five chapters, each of which is written by a representative of the five English classes. At first the story was limiited to school life, but now the field has been broadened, and, as a natural result each year marks an advance- ment over the previous one. We were not disappointed this year, for the story certainly de- sprves to be called the " Novel Novel.

Enid High School has been very fortunate this year in having some of the most prominent men of the day to speak in chapel. They have been men who were interested in the real problems of the day and who have spoken from experience. Among them were Montraville Wood; the noted scientist; J. J. Alexander, Secretary of the Boy Scout movement; Gov. Cruce of our own state; Mr. Usida who with his little boy lectured on Japan. Besides these a series of lectures were arranged by Mr. Price, given by the business men of Enid. Every profession was ably explained by the most prominent Enid men. Another very inter- esting series of talks has been that by the students from different branches of High School work, thus making the chapels this year inter- esting as well as instructive. 97 THE " E " BANQUET formerly given by the football boys, was given in their honor this year by the Student Council. The banquet was given in the cafeteria " on Friday evening, the nineteenth of December. Toasts were given by the teachers and football boys. One of the fea- tures which was a decidedly new one, was that of having cabaret dancers who were members of the boys ' and girls ' Glee Clubs. Another feature which was of in- terest to everyone was the election of a football cap- tain for the nineteen-fifteen season. Otis Harp, who has played on the first team three seasons was unanimously elected. An elaborate five- course banquet was served. Sophomore girls acting as waitresses. THE SENIOR CLASS PARTY was given Saturday evening the twenty - second of November in honor of the Wich- ita foot ball visitors. The party was given in the ' ' g y m ' ' which was decorated with pennants and streamers in the E. H. S. colors which were also the Wichita colors. Games were played and an impromptu program was given. Cider was served in the old - time style of wooden kegs and tin cups. Refresh- ments consist- i n g of two courses were served in the cafeteria, the tables being ar- ranged in a large " E " and dec- orated in the Senior colors, red and black. Toasts were given by Mr. Price, MissPow- er. Miss Ke 1 lerman, M r . Waller, Mr. Jacoby, and the Captain of the Wichita team, with Mr. Henry Bass, acting as toast master. After the re- fresh- ments, yells were giv- en and the old high school songs were sung. 98 THE JUNIOR CLASS PARTY was given Friday evening, the ninth of October. The class had as guests the members of the El Reno and Enid football teams. The gymnasium was decorated for the occasion in purple and gold. Pennants hung from the balcony, and suspended from the center of the ceiling was a football. Di- rectly under- neath this was a table on which were small " sacks, filled with air. Each football boy selected a sack and car- ried out instructions on the inside. A program was given and punch and wafers were served. THE SOPHOMORE CLASS PARTY was given November the sixth, in the High School Gymnasium. The guests of honor of this party were the Blackwell football boys. The gymna- sium was dec- orated with pennants and green and white streamers, and a large " 1917 " was formed at one side. Streamers formed booths at each end from which cider, punch and wafers were served. A geo- graphical con- test was held and various games were played. The following program was given: Vocal solo, Ruth Fowler; Reading, Cliffie Dodd; Piano duet, Florence and Mona Foglesong; Reading. Mona Foglesong THE FRESHMAN " WIENER " ROAST was celebrated on Friday the twenty-sixth of March. The class, with Miss Meredith and Miss Neiman as chaperones, made the hike several miles south in two hayracks, starting at about five o ' clock. Ar- riving a t their destination about two hours later, a large bonfire was built and " weinies " and marshmallows were toasted. The class started back at a 1 a t e hour, singing and giving class yells and arrived A home without ac- cident at an early hour the next morning. THE FACULTY " WIENER " ROAST was one of the first social events of the year. One bright Saturday afternoon the hike was made to Lakewood Park, a car having been chartered from the Enid Street Railway Company. After the usual feast prepared for a " weinie " roast, the evening was spent in various (?) games. One of the most en- joyable features was that of an " all star " indoor baseball game. Mr. Waller gave his services as floor sweeper by making " hom e -slides. " The time was very enjoyably spent until a late hour. There were several other than the faculty members. 100 May Jff attual One of the most interesting events of the year was the May fete, given in Government Part on Saturday, May the first. This was the first May festival held in Enid, though it will now be an annual custom. Miss Faye Orelup was elected May Queen by the student body, she being one of the prettiest, most attractive girls in the high school. Miss Bierbower, girls ' athletic director, with the able assistance of Miss Meredith, had charge of the dances. , - At the Park, the procession consisting of the queen, her attendants and the dancers, came down the cement terrace, over the bridge across the lagoon to the Queen ' s throne. There the Queen was crowned by Mr. Henry Bass, President of the Senior class. Following the crowning of the Queen, the dances were given. First was the Floral Arch dance, given by girls from the upper classes. The fresh green grass and hedges formed a very pretty background for the white dresses and arches. Then there was the dance of the Wood Nymphs. The nymphs were eighth grade girls and were dressed in pale yellow with garlands for their hair. One of the most enjoyable dances was that of the Clowns, who were eighth grade boys who certainly acted the part. Perhaps the prettiest dance was the Spanish dance. Five of the most attractive girls in the school took part in this, and their bright costumes were very pretty. Another pretty dance was the Highland Fling. The girls with their gay plaid costumes made pleasing Scotch lassies. The Rose Dancers, dressed in pale pink with pink flowers in their hair, gave a most attractive dance. The next of the dances was the Sailor ' s Hornpipe. This was quite a novelty to everyone, and the girls in white middy suits and red ties were most attractive in this dance of odd steps. The last of the dances was the Country dance. A strang- er at Enid High would never have recognized any of the sixteen girls who, dressed in true " rube " fashion gave a Virginia reel. The court jesters were Paul Blattler and Claude Benjamin. After the dances, three Maypoles were wound ; one by the Rose dancers, one by the Nymphs, and the other by the Floral Arch dancers and the young men of the high school. This last Maypole was wound with blue and white, the others being wound with pink and white, and yellow and white, respectively. This concluded the festival which, as proved by the crowd that witnessed it, was a great success. Enid High School owes much to the dancers who worked so faithfully, but the most of the credit should be given to Miss Bierbower and Miss Meredith for their excellent training. 101 HI J 1 1,„ 1913-1914.

He has been our football coach for four years. The teams which this coach has trained, incited interest and enthusiasm in everyone. The aggressive and " never-say-die ' spirit which he has inspired in his proteges, causing them to win victories against overwhelming odds, spread his fame abroad and his services were secured by Leavenworth, Kansas, (not the penitentiary) High School. He returned to us, however, this year and turned out a team which was superior to any other team which ever represented E. H. ' S. To him more than to any other person is due the credit for placing Enid High in the enviable position which she now oc- cupies in Oklahoma athletics. BENJAMIN T. BULLEN. Benjamin Bullen first saw the light of day in Belleville, Kansas. He attended Kansas University for two years and graduated from the Kansas State Nor- mal. The baseball team, last year under his charge won the championship of Okla- homa. He has been our basketball coach this year. It was largely due to his efl; ' orts and coaching that a basketball team was developed worthy to represent Enid High. The teams this year though not heavy, owed their success to the team work which he fostered among them. FOOTBALL SQUAD 114 mm i£ttttr Men Evert Wilmoth— " Eb. " Captain ; Quarterback ; age 17 ; weight 140; height 5 ft. 7 in. He was the heady fleet general of the team, the fastest man to follow up punts, the best receiver of forward passes, a sure tackier, an accurate passer; but was unfortunate enough to receive a sprained ankle in the Norman game which kept him from playing his best and consequently prevented his being chosen on the All State Team. Otis Harp— " Tots. " Captain-elect, Right-half; age 18; weight 142 ; height 5 ft. 7 1-4 in. He was the best runner of interference on the team, the bulwark of defense in the backfield against line plunges and end runs and against forward passes. He is superior in possession of football wisdom necessary to a good football captain. Harold Butler— " Tubby. " Left tackle; age 18; weight 215, height 5 ft. 7 1-2 in. He was the largest, most experienced man in the squad; a member of the All-State Team for two years. He was a powe ful mountain of defense, being able to make himself felt as he crushed the line and off-tackle plunges of the enemy. He was proficient in the art of opening up holes. He is the only man who made the team four years. His prodigious services will be missed next year. Earl Flanagan— " Fat. " Right Guard; age 18; weight 163; height 5 ft. 10 1-2 inches. Not very many games were ever made through his position. On offensive play he was always there in takin " , his man out. He is Irish, a hard worker and an inspirerer of confi- dence among his team mates. This is his second and last year on the team. Henry Bass — " Heine, " right tackle; age 17; weight 168; height 6 feet. He was chosen for the All-State Team this year. He with Flan- agan at guard, formed the best pair to work together, shoulder to shoulder, in the thick of the strife. He is big and pov. ' erful and was called upon most to make a line plunge near the enemy ' s goal line for his charges were irresistable. A fierce, but clean tackier, he played upon the poor little fellow with the ball, nearly annihilating him. He was fast to follow up punts. He starred particularly in the Norman and Wichita games. Sydney Featherston— " Sid, " fullback; age 16; weight 188; height 5 feet, 11 inches. He was the hardeevt hitting member of the eleven, ? hard tackier, and the team ' s mainstay in punting.

He was the bright and particular star in the Chickasha and Wichita games. Percy Porter — " Perc. " Left end; age 18; weight 170; height 5 ft. 8 in. He ranks among the best ends in Oklahoma especially on de- fense. He was a fast and strong player. As a tackier he nailed his man hard and low. Percy is one of the best ends developed in Enid High and next year he will be in his prime. He was mentioned for All-State Team and he has a berth assured to him in it for next year. He made everyone sit up and take notice at Norman. Douglas Cullison— " Satan. " Right end; age 17; weight 146; height 4 ft. 9 in. He was famous for breaking up forward passes, was a good tackier and as off-tackle smasher, he could always be relied upon to take out his opponent tackle, no matter how large he was. He was a player full of " sand " and " pep " and will be at his best next year. Richard Triplett — " Beans. " Center. Age 17; weight 174; height 5 ft. 11 in. He was a star on defense. This was his first year on the team but he rounded out into a good center which will make him a pride of the school next year. Time after time he plunged through or over the line to get the man with the ball, causing the opposing centers to weep and the quarterbacks to quake with fear. Roy Magee — " Curly. " Left guard; age 16; weight 160; height 5 ft. 10 1-2 in. He was the husky green rural youth who though not possessing the slightest rudiments of football, because the right man for the position.

He is one of the best open field runners in the state for he was fast and speedy on his feet and dexterous in the gentle art of " stilt " aiming, tie starred m every game especially m the game with Wichita in which he played a remarkable game with dislocated shoulders. He also was mentioned for the All-State Team. William Wicker — " Speedy. " Half and quarter back; age 18; weight 141 ; height 4 ft. 6 in. He is a fast and shifty runner which made him a good broken field runner. His fame however, rests upon A FIRST TEAM LINE-UP his " cultured toe " which defeated the powerful Vinita team in the last minute of desperate play. He is remembered from last year for accom- plishing the defeat of the formidable Chickasha Eleven. Card Ford — " Road Louse. " Center; age 17, weight 138; height 5 ft. 10 1-2 in. He was the lightest, but the hardest, grittest fighter on the team. He was excelled by no centers in the accuracy of his passing. His year on the team is a fitting climax to years of hara consistent toil and endeavor. Roy Bruce — " Scotty. " End and guard; age 18, weight 163; height 5 ft. 9 in. He played his first year on the team. He came oul late but he exhibited the qualities of a good football player. He was strong and steady and was speedy with cat-like quickness.

X FOOTBALL REVIEW. With eight " E " men and former Coach Waller back, the football situation did not so unpromising when the first scrimmage took place in the Fall, even though most of the " E " men had had only one year ' s experience. In fact it was not. The men who came out did so with the earnest intention of striving hard for a position on the team. Thus there was keen competition for the coveted places on the Eleven. Night after night the football aspirants were hammered into shape; the rudiments of the game were instilled into them and they were. A SCRUB LINE-UP 117 perfected in team work and organization, until at last the most Promis- ing were weeded out to meet the first test, the scrimmage with Phillips University. Joyfully was the news received and spread, when it was learned that the light E H. S. boys had completely annihilated the heavy and ponderous University Eleven. The latter were decisively crushed and beaten in a rapid succession of line plunges, smashes, end runs, anci forward passes. At last the team was chosen. It was the lightest team in the history of E. H. ;S. The line, though not very heavy, was the equal oi any in the state. The backfield was light but speedy and was difficult to stop. The season commenced with the El Reno game. Coach Waller had perfected a team which was perfect in minutest detail. Well oiled, each cog in perfect running order, the Enid team unfolded play after play and was absolutely impenetrable on defense, resulting in the visiting team being utterly bewildered, amazed, terrified, and routed. When the dust of battle had subsided, a record score had been rung up— 115 to 0. Then came the game with Connell State School of Agriculture. The Enid machine, as irresistable as the charges of the Rough Riders, smashed the heavy defense of the " Aggies " and recorded the score of 26 to 0. Each man on the team, each unit of the machine was essential to the team. During the Enid-Norman game, with Enid leading 6 to 0, a most important cog of the machine, Captain Wilmoth, was injured, and the whole machine was thrown out of gear. Nevertheless, fighting hard, the crippled and disorganized team went down in defeat before the fast Norman Eleven, 28 to 6. With Captain V ilmoth still injured but in the game, and Wickei in reserve, the readjusted team encountered the powerful Blackwell Eleven. The game was fiercely contested but the Enid lads outplayed their opponents in every department, to the music of 14 points to 0. JOHN BILL NIEHIE This game was a hard one for the locals and the results were reflected in the following game. Chickasha arrived, entertaining visionary hopes of victory and vengeance for last year ' s defeat. At first it looked as if she would realize her expectations, for the Enid machine looked as if it had dirt in its bearings. However this condition of att ' airs did not last long for the; mechanism resumed its working at its usual high rate of eft ' iciency, win - ning, 7 to 6. Entering the game with Wichita with the firm determination to close the brilliant football season at home with a great victory, the Enid team working in the best form of the year, utterly demolished the Kansan football organization with a concerted and overpowering attack, sweeping everything before it. The fame of the Enid team had, as was natural to expect, spread abroad. Three teams had cancelled their games with Enid; Lawton, Guthrie, because of justly inspired fear, and Shawnee for practically the same reason. Believing the season was over, as Guthrie had been scheduled to play on Thanksgiving, practice was suspended. However Vinita, the champions of Eastern Oklahoma, desired to engage the collec- tion of football demons from Enid under competitive conditions. Im- mediately upon the opening of the game, Eb, the engineer of the ma- chine, threw the throttle wide open and the machine rushed down thp field. Fate intervened and aided the Vinita lads to the score, but the game was won by Enid in the last minute of play. It was a breathless thrilling climax to a season of brilliant and glorious victories, won by the best team that ever represented Enid High School on the gridiron. X- FOOTBALL RESULTS.

Basketball which has never been a source of popular interest in Enid High, received this year the most enthusiastic support that has ever been accorded this deserving form of athlet ' cs. At the first ot the season at Mr. Bullen ' s call for candidates, a number of boys responded. For days they practiced until the football season ended when still more entered the competitive lists for positions on the team. As a preliminary or final test of the players before the schedule opened, the inter-class games were held. Here each of the lads wap given an opportunity to unfold his ability in a real game. The games were all fiercely fought and it foretold that Enid would have a team of which she could be proud. The first game was with the E. H. S. Alumni. In the first hall the high school lads were easily outclassed but in the latter half, a team went in which has been the first team ever since. With superior team work, skill and speed, they overhauled their opponents and won with ease, 39 to 22. With the team now chosen, Mr. Bullen sent them in against an ag- gregation of stars representing the Armory A. C. With their famous fighting spirit, and unexcelled play, the High School lads won, 39 to 21. Then came the first game with the outside team, the mighty Pond Creek Five. They led the locals in the first half but in the last half, with an old time rally, the ' Enid boys outplayed them to a finish, but were, in spite of that, unable to overcome the lead which was maintained by Pond Creek. The game ended with a score of 30 to 39 in favor of the visitors. The next game was with Kingfisher but they were far inferior to Enid High. In this game the Enid boys displayed to best advantage, their team work, winning by the overwhelj ing count of 67 to 4. Phillips University held her first annual basketball tournament. Enid was entered and won all her games until the finals, when she lost the cup to her old rivals. Pond Creek. This fight for the championship was sternly contested despite the fact that Eb and McKee were unable to play. Following right close to these games, the Newkirk team came here to win. The situation appeared desperate, for Eb and Jim were still out of the game. Their presence, however, was not needed for their substi- tutes filled their shoes admirably, Enid won easily by a score of 44 to 15. The season ended with the game with Blackwell who later won the championship of Oklahoma. Outweighed, out-reached and outplayed, Enid went down before their crushing attack, 51 to 19. Consddering the fact that this was the first time that any member of the team had ever played on a team other than on a class team, the season was a great success. To only two teams did Enid lose and next year with five of the eight " E " men back, Enid will have a powerful team for state honors in basketball. BASKETBALL RESULTS.

He was quick, sure on his feet, skilled in taking the ball from his opponents and rarely missed the basket. He will be missed next year more than any other player. Walter Goltry, Forward. Walt in the thick of the game was calm and unruffled. He could locate the basket well and was the particular stai in the Newkirk game. James McKee, Center. Jim, the tall pumping center was in nearly every play. He outjumped all of his opponents where it was physically possible, consequently was an able unit in the team play. Earl Flanagan, Center. Earl could smite the ball to all parts of the " gym. " He was a good man to work with his teammates and he add- ed to the scores by shooting many baskets in the games which he par- ticipated. Newton Weatherly, Guard. He was the best guard ever developed in the high school. Neut was excelled by none in getting the ball from his opponents and throwing it hard and with sure aim to his forwards. William Wicker, Guard. Bill was the foot quick little guard who clung to his opponents like a leech. He was proba bly the best dribbler on the team getting the ball out of the danger zone time after time. Ois Harp, Guard.

He was heady and played safe and sure all the time. 122 McKay, Sater, Renchler, Hitchcock, Snoddy, McKay, (Capt.) Thompson, Sterrett, Tranter. GIRLS BASKETBALL TEAM GIRLS ' BASKETBALL. The girls ' class basketball series was again won by the class of 1914. They won easily due undoubtedly to the fact that three of them were members of the first team. By superior teamwork and individual skill they defeated the Junior girls for the championship after the Jun- iors had defeated the Freshmen and the Seniors had defeated the Soph- mores. The individual stars of the series were as follows: Eva McKay, IViola Safer, Lillian Rentchler, Thelma Tranter, Nettie Snoddy, Ethel Stucker and Emma Makay. The scores were as follows : Seniors 10 Juniors 20 Seniors 33 Sophomores 4 Freshmen 6 Juniors 16 BASKETBALL. E. H. S. E. H. S. E. H. S. E. H. S.

All of the girls had had some experience in class basketball and by the efficient coaching of Miss Bierbower, developed ex- cellent team work and a fighting spirit that made them the best basket- ball team ever turned out by E. H. S. The season opened with Kingfisher High School. Though faced bv a more experienced and larger team, our girls took the lead on the start and kept it all the time winning by the score of 20 to 12. On the follow- ing Friday the girls journeyed to Kingfisher for a return game. It was the first trip ever taken by a girls ' athletic team representing Enid High School. Undaunted by the strange surroundings and formidable oppon- ents the girls worked hard and again humbled our southern friends to the score of 16 to 9. Two weeks later we clashed with Medford High School. Enid ' s team work was going in great shape and the team play of the forwards, Eva McKay and Viola Safer, could not be broken up and E. H. S. won 40 to 9. The following week the girls went to Medford for the return game, but Medford secured the lead in the last half and time was then called regardless of the fact that there remained some minutes to play. Medford lead 22 to 20 when the game was stopped. THE TEAM. Eva McKaj Captain, Forward. — The veteran, wise in playing, ex- perienced, was the ideal captain, who infused enthusiasm in her team- mates. She was cool and unnerved throughout the game. She was fast and could locate the basket with ease. Viola Sater, Forward. — Viola was the fastest girl on the team, was alv ays at the right place and was the most accurate in throwing goals. She like Eva could always be depended upon in the heart of the strife. She starred nt Kingfisher, Thelma Tranter, First Center. — Thelma was a cool and steady vet- eran. She was the jumping center, the most important cog in Miss Bier- bower ' s Basketball machine. She starred particularly at Medford. Emma McKay. — Second Center. Emma was a good little player. She with Thelma Tranter formed a pair of centers whose team play could scarcely be excelled, especially that at Medford. Lillian Rentchler, Guard. — This is her first year on the team but she developed into the best of guards. She was quick and active but that Quality which made her famous was her " never say-die " fighting spirit. Time after time she prevented goals from being made and never failed to send the ball back toward her own goal. Nettie Snoddy, Guard. — Nettie was a veteran of Class Basketball games. She was steady as a rock, used her head all the time and by her awn skill and eff ' ort she cut down the points of her opponents. She with rhelma Tranter and Eva McKay form the Old Guard which will pass out of existance with the graduation of the Seniors. Dorothy Hitchcock, Sub. — Second center. Dorothy gives promise of being a very good player next year. She is somewhat inexperiencd but next year she will be a star. May Thompson, Sub Forward. — She was able to take the place of any of the other forwards any time if they would be taken out. She will be a good one to take the Eva McKay honors. X MISS ALTHA LEAH BIERBOWER. Miss ierbower is our popular girls ' physical director. Due to her we have had a girls ' team which has proved to be a credit to E. H. S. Miss Bierbower attended Chicago University and Fairmount College and in both places she was connected with athletics. Her winning personal- ity makes her charges " jest riz right up " and fight for her. She has placed girls ' athletics in Enid High School at a high standard. 125 First Row: Athey, Goltry, Fetherston, Conway, Morgan, Bruct, Reinhardt (Mgr.)

(1) Otis Harp, Catcher. — The backstop without a peer, whose peg to the bases was a thing to be feared by opposing base-runners, was one of the heavy hitters of the team, which he has made two years. Tots was the fighting captain who knows the game and who puts the " pep " and fight into his men. Tots, with his timely two-bagger at Nor- man last year, won the championship for E. H. S. (2) Evert Wilmoth, Shortstop.— Eb was the lightning-sure field- er who never missed a fly and whose whips to the rest of the infield were always accurate. He was another good hitter and was one of the best on our heavy hitting team. On bases he was fast. He never made a bobble in the tightest game. This was Eb ' s third year on the team. (3) Roy Bruce, First Base. — This was his third year on the team. He was a good hitter and as a first-baseman he was fine. He was a fast base-runner, with a pretty slide, when coming to a base. (4) John Bill Harp, Second Base. — A second-year man, he played second like his old " pal, " Eddie Collins. He rarely missed a peg, taking them clean as a whistle. John hit better than ever. His batting; eye was as good as any. He, with Eb, can not be excelled in the manner in which they handle the keystone of the infield defense. (5) Harry Minton, Center-Field. — Harry was a new man, but had the stuff in him for a fine ball-player. He was noted chiefiy for the way in which he " walloped " the " pill. " He was a good base-runner as well. (6) Sidney Fetherston, Pitcher. — This was the first year that he ever pitched on a high school team. He had the " smoke, " the curves and everything else when it came to putting something on the ball. There is no question but that he will develop into one of the best pitchers that E. H. S. ever had. (7) William Conway, Pitcher. — William was also a new man and he was a good one. When he was working at his best, nothing could stop him. His speed, his deceptive curves and drops, fool the batter. He was a good hitter and in time he, with Fetherston, will be a pair of twirlers of which any school can delight in possessing. (8) William Wicker, Third Base. — This was William ' s first year as a baseball player. He covered his base like a veteran. He led off the team in batting. His low height made him a difficult man to pitch to. (9) Carl Ford, Left-Fielder. — Carl was also a new man who has demonstrated his ability to play ball. He was death on flies, and, as a base-runner, few were better. (10) Walter Goltry, Right Field. — Walt, a second-year man, was always able to judge the flies to his territory with accuracy. He was a fair hitter, and was fast on bases. 127 A m 128 First Row: Blattler, Huett (Capt.), Nay, Conway. Second Row : Gray, Leslie, Hayen, Fager, Coates. Third Row: Pickerel, Kent. FRESHMEN FOOTBALL TEAM The class football games this year were particularly noticeable for the low scores prevailing, signifying that the teams were of practically equal strength. The games were interesting as they were all strenuous- ly fought from start to finish. New stars were developed and brought into the limelight, who will make their mark in inter-scholastic football next year. The series began December the third, with the game between the Freshmen and the Sophomores. The latter entered the game with a lit- tle too much optimism which changed quickly to dismay when their cap- tain and star player, Chappell, received a broken collar bone. However the disorganized " Sophs " played desperately, but were unable to stoD the hopeful Freshmen. By brilliant forward passes and a good use of straight football, the Freshmen won 13 to 0. Both touchdowns were made on forward passes to Conway and Kent. The work of these two with that of Huett and Blattler was fine. Weatherly, Simons. Shockley and Athey did exceedingly good work for the Sophomores. The next day the Juniors and the Seniors played for the honor of engaging the P ' reshmen in the finals. ' Scarcely any of the Seniors had ever played before, yet for the greater part of the game they kept the ball in the enemy ' s territory. A little more practice and experience would have won for them, for they were fairly strong on defense and weaker on offense. The Juniors had a good team and because of many fumbles, won only after a close and hard fight. In the last three minute. ' , of the game, Forster, fullback for the Juniors, caught a punt and ran fifty yards for the only score of the game. His work with that of Gol- try (Senior captain) shone above that of the rest. Goltry made fre- quent long gains around end and excelled particularly on defense. The score was 6 to 0. December the seventh, the championship game was played. The day was cold; the ground was heavy mud, and consequently there was a slow game. The Juniors, champions of last year, pitted their strength against the new first year men. From the beginning the Juniors swept the Freshmen off their feet and started for their goal. The lower class men were bewildered. In vain, did they try to stop Forster ' s rushes. The Juniors scored a safety and appeared confident of easily acquiring more points. They reckoned without Orville Huett, the captain of the " Fresh- ies. " Mightily he exhorted his men by words and by action, to play football. Result: the Juniors were completely routed. Nothing coulrt stop the aroused Freshmen. By straight football, chiefly, they crashed thru the enemy ' s lines for good gains, and nothing could hold them- Huett, little Blattler, Nay and Conway were the stars who defeated the Juniors with a final score, 12 to 2. Frequent penalization had robbed them of several touchdowns. The Freshmen class were champions of the class football teams for the season of 1914. 130 THE ALL-CLASS TEAM. To further the interest in the class football series and to stimulate the plavers to a greater degree of effort and skill, the athletic editor of " The Quill " appointed a few " E " men to select a mythical all-class team. The selections were based upon the particular showing of each man in the position in which he played, even though he might have played bet- ter in different positions to which he had been accustomed. The selec- tions as printed in the Christmas issue of " The Quill " are given below: Center Right Guard Left Guard Right Tackle Left Tackle Right End Left End Quarter Full back Right Half Left Half Coates Freshman Hayen Freshman Burt Senio ' Mosher Junior Simons Sophomore Pickerel Freshman Oakley Junior Shockley Sophomore- Forster Junior Huett, Captain, Freshman Goltry Senior ' DOUG " , YELL LEADER 131 JUNIOR BASKETBALL TEAM BOYS ' INTERCLASS BASKETBALL. The inter-class series was held earlier this year than last because the class games were to be the final training of the boys before the schedule opened. For that reason the earlier games were poorly played. Many fumbles and inaccurate goal-shooting characterized the work of each team. However the later games were the best class games which have ever been played in Enid High School. in the first games the Seniors easily defeated the Freshmen. The Juniors barely won from the strong Sophomores and extra time was re- quired to play off the tie which had been made. In the next series the Seniors humbled the fighting Sophomores while the Juniors easily took the Freshmen into camp. The championship of the classes and the Frantz- Wright loving cup was now to be contested for between the Juniors and the Seniors, the two leading classes in Fnid High School. Tn one of the most thrill- ing and exciting basketball games in the history of the local court, the Seniors rallied in the latter part of the game overcoming a large lead and tying the score just as the final whistle blew. In the next few minutes while the tie was being played off, in a breathless intense mo- ment. Shy, the captain of the Juniors, dropped the fateful ball in the basket which won the game and the championship. The scores of the games were as follows Seniors Juniors Seniors Juniors Seniors 53 15 28 53 42 Sophomores 31 Freshmen 19 Sophomores 13 Sophomores 20 Freshmen 16 Juniors 44 Freshmen 19 SENIOR GIRLS TEAM 133 CROSS COUNTRY RUN. This year, all classes met in competition for the Lamerton Cup. when the annual cross country run was held. The course this year was about two miles. The class winning was the Sophomore. The individ- ual winners were : Roy Magee, Sophomore, First : Clark Gallager, Sopho- more, Second: George Earl, Junior, Third. The race was run in the good time of 9 min., 13 sec. The class having won it last year is the present Junior class. The number of points scored by each class based upon the system are as follows: As a fitting climax to the successful basket ball season, the Faculty basketball team defeated the champion Juniors and won the championship of the school. It was an exciting heart-stopping struggle, raising the interest of the spectators to a tremendous height. Never was such a game gazed upon by human beings. It defies description for it will go down in the annals of history. Never was there such a forward as Dewitt Lamar Waller. Never breathed there such a guard as William Proctor Canavan. Never was there anyone that could play like Mr. Price or Mr. Bullen or Mr. Hamilton or Mr. Bass. The champion Juniors fresh from victory over the classes were eager for the fray. But alas, victory was not for them. That noble bird of victory, the eagle, rested upon the banners of the faculty, upon the shoulders of the feminine instructors in the Enid High School while their fellow-tyrants and lords, struggled mightily and won.

T scrambled and mucked like a slave, Was it ' Strawberry " of " Sprain " I fot it, I hurled my youth into a grave. I wanted the " E " and I got it; Came out with the ' signia last fall, - . Yet somehow life ' s not what I thot it, And some how the " E " isn ' t all. No! There ' s the game, (Have you seen it?) It ' s the cussedest game that I know. From the big hurley halfbacks that " screen it " To the battle scared linemen below. Some say man was beast when he played it. Some say it ' s a fine game to shun, Ma.ybe! But there ' s some as would trade it For no game on earth; and I ' m one. You play it for fame! (some good reason). You feel like an exile, at first; You hate it like mad, for a season, • And then you are worse than the worst. It grips you like some kinds of love, boy ! It turns you from " puny " to " strong. " It seems that you can ' t give it up, boy! But somehow, you ' re sure to go wrong. I ' ve stood on a " mighty mouthed " gridiron, With the stands full of " fans " to the brim; And watched those big husky men wallow In grime, dirt and dust, and grow dim ; ' Til some trick sent the bleachers a ' screaming When the backfield was down, neck and crop. And I thot that I surely was dreaming With half of the world piled on top. 135 But the thrill, no grander was ever, Than that which the kickoff may bring. Those hard played halfbacks are dearer To me, than the heroes you sing. A strong life that never nows harness, Where manhood stands ready for call; The bravery, the courage, the fairness, Oh ! how I ' m strong for it all. There ' s the fame, and it ' s haunting and haunting. It lures me on as of yore. Yet it ' s not the name that I ' m wanting, So much, as he longing for " gore. " It ' s a great big fine game way out yonder; It ' s the place where science has lease; It ' s the daring, that fills me with wonder; It ' s the fairness that fills me with peace. ■ — Douglas Cullison. 136 STATISTICS.

Carl Ezra Ford was a spendthrift, And a magnified spender therewith; He deemed expenses as trifling, Called them a gatherly myth. He took his girl out auto riding, (Douglas paid for the gas), Carl ' s girl got verily hungry, But Carl bought no chow for the lass. Oh what did Carl do for the girlie, As her thirst increased on their roam? Did Carl buy her chocolate, or sandwich? No! Carl took his Genevive home. 138 But Carlie. poor lad, he was famished For the eats he made a bee-line; His bill was enormous, yea monstrous, That niffht at the old Enidine. — X NECESSITIES.

You ' ll find him on West Cherokee When he is not up town. There is a little lady He knows her very well. And in his eyes she seems to be A perfect little belle.

Doug Cullison, the noted high school runner, covered nine miles on the road in ninety minutes and sixty seconds last week. (He was in a Ford.) Tubby Butler cleared seven feet, one inch last week. It will not be accepted as an official record because the spring was obtained by sitting on an upturned pin. Stuffy Goltry broke the world ' s record for a 100 yard dash, which he made in seven seconds, obtaining his start from Mr. Price ' s front porch with a milk bottle in his hand. The record which was held by Mr. Ralph Delano of Des Moines, was broken yesterday by a prominent Enid boy. The record was made in New Jersey in 1909, and up to this date no one has been successful in attempts to break it, until yeserday when it was broken by a sopho- more in the Enid High School known as Jay Lee Cromwell. His record was 37 pieces and had Mr. Delano been holding the record when Crom- well bumped in to him Cromwell might have broken it into 40 pieces. Tt was an Edison Record of " My Country ' Tis of Thee. " SPECIAL TODAY AT THE EMPHRIAM. Seven Reels Pathe Weekly The great photo-drama, " The Problem.

That greatest of Keystone Comedies, " Zu-Zu, the Band Leader, " is efficiently starred by D. L. Cullison, who is ably assisted by Percy Canavan and Maxine Clark. The five reel Comic Drama " Love Me Little, Love Me Long " produced by the Paramount Company is excellently handled by Miss Sue Buekner and Mr. Le Mar Waller. The leading parts of the " Mathematical German " are well filled bv Miss Lucile Kelerman and Mr. Benie Bullen. Miss Kellerman and Mr. Bullen, together with Miss Susie Buekner and Mr. Waller of the Paramount Company, formerly worked with the Educational Film Com- pany which has been disbanded.. " The Master Key " which has been attracting much attention lately has been taken out of circulation and is now in the possession of Kruce. Kornbaum Co. The attempt made by the Junior ' s Company to stage " Beating Back " starred by Clay (Doc) Francisco was a complete failure.

(With apologies to Edgar Allan Poe) It was many and many a day ago, ' . In that brand new Buick of mine, That a maiden, a girl whom you may know Was riding with me so fine; And this maiden lived with no other thought Than to ride in that Buick of mine. I was quite gay and she was quite gay, As we were riding so fine, And we talked and acted as young people may, When they are out for a time; But a turn in the road and a ditch nearby Aided in causing a crime. And this was the reason that on that day, As we were riding so fine. The spokes broke out of the left front wheel, ■ Wrecking that auto of mine; So a m.otor truck came out from town. And trailed us down the line; . , They took us up to a garage . To fix that Buick of mine. Our friends so happy when we reached town. Kept guying us all the time. And gave this reason for broken cJir, That while riding along so fine, I had forgotten the steering wheel To hold to that girlie of mine. But our love for joy riding was stronger than ever No one relished it more than we, No one cherished it more than we: But neither the angels; in heaven above. Nor the demons down under the sea Could ever persuade that daddy of hers To give up his daughter to me. If you ever go riding remember the guiding. Of that new Buick of mine. And don ' t be my mate, and bring the same fate To that new auto of thine; But keep in the road, and guide with both handt- That brand new Buick of thine. — Joe Ash REMINISCENCES.
