V W1 Vftvmv FOREWORD As each of us has responded to the glamour and romance of a past era as portrayed in our much-loved "Treasure Island." so it is our hope that in the years to come this book will carry us buck to the glory of our high school days. It is not for the present that we have written, but rather for that placid eventide of life when you and I shall turn these worn pages and shall conjure up a score of memories to keep us company. —The Staff. --------------------- [!' vL y v . , dmhih ffid jt ; ]${ $: •» .--•» L 'i v Vv ilW Ji [“h'l I'xA .- - '' ■) '' ’ AWWt A r l It ' v T" It I " » IMM To that spirit of unselfish sacrifice and wholehearted generosity of the People of Ennis as an expression of our sincere appreciation of the splendid schools with which they have provided us. of the interest they have manifested in all our student activities. and particularly, in appreciation of the support they have accorded our athletics, our student publications, and our literary events, the students of the Ennis High School gratefully dedicate this volume of The Bashaba. i|A1 T-M ’iljy.xS ! fik - w ' i fiW j f W i uT-ffi Mi I p m 12 A HJCH-SCHOOLJ. W. O BANION, SuperintendentSENIORS, all too soon you will be feeling, if not actually exclaiming. ” Backward! Turn backward, O lime, in ihy flight; Make me a child again just tor tonight. Then "fond memory will bring the light of other days around you." and you will be made to realize that the long years spent in high school are, in reality, but a brief and joyful vacation season. Education is a "leading out." At the close of your high school days, can you truthfully say that you have been "led out" into broader and more fruitful fields of vision and service? Have you enlarged your mental powers? Have you increased your moral stamina? Surely you have grown in stature. Have you added to your spiritual being? With an open and inquiring mind, a loyal and sympathetic heart, be ever ready to "press forward." Sincerely yours. Paae n OUR FACULTY When the Good Ship 1 26 sailed out of port in September. 1925, amid the shouts of "Bon Voyage"' from the interested populace, she bore only nine of her old officers on board. To fill the places of those who had not returned, seven others, new to us. had been employed. At the end of the first month, we paused to take on .Miss Wilmarth, who somewhat alleviated the crowded conditions of the sophomore and freshman classrooms. Every officer of our crew is a college graduate, a fact of which we are justly proud. Most of them spend their vacations better equipping themselves for their work. Miss Richmond. Miss Barkley, Miss Raphael. Mrs. Gray, Miss Ross, and Mr. Barnes have completed a large amount of work toward their Master s degree. Miss Richmond being in line for this degree at the University of I exas this June. And all the rest of our instructors are experienced sailors on the Sea of Education. In many respects, this has been the most successful voyage Ennis High School has ever known. We have had calmer weather, less mutiny, and other troubles than ever before, a fact to which Admiral O’Banion will testify. With Pilot Street directing our course, we have had swifter, smoother, and more methodical sailing than we have ever before experienced. We have come to look upon our faculty, not as guards who are put here to lake away the rights and privileges of free seamen, but as faithful advisors of our common good and safety, and as triends to those who walk uprightly. Wre appreciate their spirit of self-sacrifice and service in training us to be better Freshmen. Sophomores. Jun- • jl 7 m Miss Maud Barkley History Miss Barkley has grown dearer to E. H. S. students as the years have passed. She knows more history than most of us ever want to know. Her specialties are the history of the calendar and the English Constitution. Mr. D. L. Barnes Mathematics Mr. Barnes is distinguished chiefly by his length, his walk, and his good disposition. In him every E. H. S. boy and girl has a friend. "NufF said." Miss Titia Belle Blanks Domestic Art We never saw her without a smile, and sho is "right there” when it comes to the eats proposition. Miss Blanks should certainly have no trouble with the matrimonial problem, if "that old saying" is true. Miss Ida Mae Day Mathematics With her calm disposition. Miss Day endears herself to all. She possesses one of the cardinal virtues of women—quietness. When she speaks she says something worth while. Miss Lorena Dry Domestic Science Miss Dry hails from the "Wild, wooly West.” a fact easily discerned by her freedom of speech and manner. Although she sometimes has to hold her temper with both hands, she has an unusually sunny disposition. 13 I - Vo. - Mrs. Archie D. Gray Business Administration In every activity of the school. Mrs. Gray is indispensable because of her ability and art of leadership. As Sponsor for the past twc years, she has endeared herself to each membe: of the Senior class. But how she works those classes in Shorthand! Miss Ei.oise K.IMBELL English We sometimes wonder if she will ever grow up. We hope not. We also wonder why she always seems to attract certain persons of athletic inclination. Although Miss Kimbell is "hard-boiled'' in class, she is charming and lots of fun. Miss Bonnie Leslie Science Miss Leslie is as expert a mixer as you will find, as she has managed to keep the building intact. In many activities, she is always willing to do her share of the work—as well as the play. Mr. R. B. Neilson Science Athletic Coach "Buck'' is an outstanding figure in E. H. S.. physically, intellectually, and vocally. He possesses a great love for "God's great open spaces," which is exceeded only by his love for. er—football. MlSS WlLHEI.MINA RAPHAEL English Does she ever worry? or does anything evet disturb the calm serenity of her features? We often wonder. Miss Raphael is a general favorite among both students and faculty, and. according to Mr. Street, is a whiz for work i tifJC I f vv is , We lr.’)v£ Q l asTiWLa . Miss Sadie Claire Richmond English Miss Richmond loves her "wonderful Seniors" even better than she esteems that charming gentleman, Sir Roger de Coverly, or the Library. She has been a wonderful influence for good in the life of each of us. for she teaches lessons other than English. Miss Ethel Ross Spanish Miss Ross has shown her great skill and cleverness in the unique programs which het Spanish club gives. She was not content with one tongue. Such is woman! Nevertheless. Miss Ross is an all-round, good sport. Miss Anne Spencer Latin She is gay and merry one minute, and solemn as a judge the next—the latter, especially, in the Study Hal). Miss Spencer makes even that "terrible subject. Latin." interesting, and all her pupils like her. Miss Thelma Vivian History Although she puts her whole being into the teaching of her beloved history, she always finds time for pleasure. Gay and carefree, she is always a pleasant companion and sympathetic advisor. Miss Nellie Wilmarth English Miss Wilmarth is beloved of the Sophs and Fish—and others. Her thoughtfulness and her ability to make friends easily are some of her admirable traits. Not to mention that giggle!

Sponsor During the session of 1925-26 the course of the senior class has been smooth, under the guidance of its efficient crew of officers, led by Jesse Thomas. The class has arisen in several emergencies to aid The Bashaba in its fight for existence. Not content with being the first class to go one hundred per cent for the annual, twenty-five seniors agreed to purchase an additional copy in case they could not sell an extra one. Later during the year the class sponsored a picture show, the proceeds of which were donated to the annual. T? 'v.. •- •- Jr?, : glS ip mi Allen, Chester Little Lyceum.

Miss Clara Teacher of Expression ..T . -TV--- r l uje 30 A1 JTsf4 LOG OF THE CREW OF ’26 Just as in olden days, a band of pirates set sail in their ship, flying the Jolly Roger, in search of gold and adventure, so. we. a jolly band of Freshmen, set sail in the Good Ship '26 in search of learning and graduation, flying from our masthead our flag of green, bearing our emblem, the pure white rose. Our voyage has been very eventful. In our first year at sea we encountered many difficulties and experiences, and engaged in battles with more experienced seamen. However, under the skillful guidance of Skipper Kemp and Captain Wood, we weathered the first lap of our long voyage. C.aptain Wood then turned the steering of the vessel over to Captain Howard. Our second year's sailing was much smoother and the weather calmer. Our turn came to teach lessons, which are necessary to inexperienced seamen, to those who were just starting on the voyage. Many times our decks rang with hilarious merriment as we watched Freshmen walk the plank. Toward the last of our Junior year, in honor of our fellow mates who were completing their voyage aboard the 1925. we entertained with the greatest banquet old E. H. S. had ever known. The entrancing woodland scene, the logs, moss, parrot, treasure chest, and, most of all, the young pirate lassies who served the dinner, all added to the realism of the scene and to our gay spirits. Such was the event, long looked forward to by anxious Juniors. The banquet was under the supervision of Skipper Gray and the entertainment was directed by Captain King. In appreciation of the part Skipper Gray played in making our voyage of the Twenty-Six successful, during the year 1925. we presented her with a beautiful onyx ring. How joyfully did we set out on the last lap of our voyage! And it has been one long series of joys, successes, and happiness, which we can never forget. Our voyage is completed. In the harbor. "Graduation" our ship has anchored. Our first goal has been reached and we must set another to be reached at the end of the long voyage. Yes. the crew of Twenty-Six has come and gone; but we have left our footprints on the sands of the shore. In future years may other storm-tossed sailors on Education Sea see them. and. with courage renewed, complete their voyage successfully, secure in the knowledge that others before them have weathered the storms.LAST WILL OF THE CLASS OF TWENTY-SIX STATE OF TEXAS County oh Ellis School of Ennis Be It Knou.'n by These Presents, that We, the Senior Class of 1926, being in good humor and sound of mind, (we hope) and memory, realizing the uncertainties of graduation and the possibility of failure and desiring to dispose of our possessions while there is yet sense enough to do so. do make this our last will and testament, hereby revoking all previous wills made by us heretofore. It is our will and desire that we be given a decent graduation (of burial) in proportion to our condition in school, that all our just and unjust debts be paid, and after the payment of the expenses of our graduation (or funeral) and the payment of our just and unjust debts, it is our desire and our will, and we hereby will, give and bequeath our holdings, real and personal, as follows: ITEM 1: To the Juniors we bequeath our place of prominence in the Study Hall: ITEM 2: To the Sophomores we bequeath Chapel with all its tender mem- ories. religious and otherwise: ITEM 3: To the Freshmen we give what little love and confidence we retain toward the faculty after our long struggle: ITEM 4: To the future Freshmen we bequeath the reading room and library, realizing that they will usurp them anyway: ITEM 5: To Miss Kimbell we will Mr. Neilson. hoping that she will be satisfied to leave the next athletic coach to the devotions of some other lady teacher, for the amusement of those who follow us: ITEM 6: To the "Civil Government Classes" of the future we give Mr. O Banion. and his own personal example of loyal, upright, patriotic citizenship: ITEM 7: To Those Who Follow we will our initials carved upon our desks and whatever space may remain for making similar fitting monuments to yourselves: ITEM 8: To Miss Richmond we bequeath the Junior Class, to be cher- ished and loved even as she has loved us—wash well her windows or to writing themes you’ll be doomed forever: ITEM 9: Jo Coming Classes in E. H. S. we give Mr. Street with his good sense, eloquent sermons, and witty sarcasm. Love, honor and obey him, or forever regret it: Item 10: To all remaining Students of Ennis Hi we will and bequeath our pep, be it ever so little, hoping it may aid future football teams in winning at least two games a season. Witnesseth my signature this the twenty-first day of May, in the year of our Lord. 1926. (Signed) CLASS OF TWENTY-SIX. Witnesses: F. C. STREET.

Page iO clhcVdr’lQ EiasliaLa LOG OF GOOD SHIP TWENTY-SEVEN Just three years ago there hove into high school waters, a goodly vessel of fair proportions. There was nothing to disinguish her from the multitude of other vessels which had gone before. We on the vessel were confident, however, that there was at least something about us which would make us individual. That something has been brought out and has proven to be “grit. We have tried from the first to smile and go ahead no matter what the difficulty. As freshmen we were not spectacular. Freshmen are never spectacular, thank goodness! The rocks, Algebra and Latin, scraped our keel, and in the passage of History Straits several good seamen were consigned to Davy Jones’ locker. We were headed north by the compass and in the North lay our port of gain. Port Sophomore. Our loyal captain. Harold Smith, directed us in an efficient and prosperous manner. Under his leadership we captured several prizes and buried them on the lonely island of Knowledge. When we reefed sails for the last time under his direction the hands gave a hearty "God rest ye. my merrie Lad.” for we hated to lose him. In Port Sophomore we were hauled up on shore to have our seams recaulked, keel painted, and other necessary repairs. After again taking to the deep, we loaded our hold with sophomore subjects and set sail for the long looked-for Port of Juniorland. By the grace of blackbeard. we arrived there on another September morning. At any rate, the place was a lost and forlorn hole. The crew began to grow mutinous about this time, and it was deemed necessary to select a captain to guide us out of our difficulties. Accordingly, an election was held amid the howling natives, and Blaine Hollimon assumed this perilous position. As his assistants. Nell Shipp drew the black bean for first mate, while Gerald Newcomb became the official purser. As keeper of the log. Josephine Caldwell took the honor. On Faculty Island we found a castaway in great distress and privation. As an act of charity she was adopted: and, allow us to tell you, she has certainly earned her grub. "Yo Ho. ye Mates! Let me present Miss Bonnie Leslie of the Good Sbippe Southern Methodist University. If you haven't met her, don’t miss this opportunity.” During our stay in Juniorland many feasts and ceremonies were held, to the great joy of the crew and the aforesaid howling natives. The climax to our efforts came at the proverbial Junior-Senior Banquet. Our vessel has only another year of sailing. Her seams are good, the wind is strong, and the sea calls.

THE CLASS OF TWENTY-EIGHT SOPHOMORE WANDERINGS One bright September morning in 1924. a large band of young, would-be buccaneers stepped aboard the Good Ship Twenty-Eight for the first time. Eagerly and hopefully we learned our new duties, and fearfully we scanned the neighboring waters for a glimpse of another dreaded pirate ship. We had not long to wait. Soon, very painfully we became familiar with the ferocious method used by that piratic crew of the Twenty-Seven. After the first few months, we began to feel more secure on the sea. and better acquainted with the ups and downs of a buccaneer's life. After mastering the knots and kinks in a sailor’s rope, during our first year at sea. we thought it our duty to inform those who were just starting out on their voyage of their obligations and duties toward their superior officers. We informed them with vigorous demonstrations, which they will not soon forget. We have come to realize how very important we are on the “Sea of Education." How could E. H. S. exist without her Sophs? Who would teach struggling Freshmen seamen their greatest lessons if there were no Sophomores? During the two years of our voyage, we have been true to the interests of our Alma Mater. Not an activity has there been in which we were not interested. Many times have our decks resounded with gay. happy voices, as we staged our "flings,” not only for our own mates, but for the crews of other ships as well. There have been a few sad moments when we have had to watch our comrades walk the plank and fall into the dark waters of Failure below. The second year of our voyage is successfully ending. Happily we look backward: and eagerly and expectantly we look forward. We do not know what the future may hold for us. but we know that somewhere, beyond the dim horizon, lies a mysterious harbor called "Graduation." into which we shall ere long sail. ] Vu V YE SOPHS Ruth Adams—Smart? Yes. Dana Armstrong is one of our noisy Sophs. Joseph Bartlett abhors "flappers.” Fern Bell declares all kiss-proof lipsticks are fakes. AuDRINE CORLEY S favorite occupation is giggling. Mildred Corley tries to be serious. Lawrence Clarke forgets to count his calories. CHASE Craig is our Sophomore jellybean. FLORENCE Davenel must have some case on the village cut-up.

GARNER Dunkf.RLEY thinks everyone else is a wreck. Mattye Ola Fowler is particular who goes with her. John Gaida uses plain laundry soap to keep that school boy complexion. Ray GlLLEY is proud of his reputation with the Faculty. TRUETT GLASPY claims to be wild, but it is only the way he wears his hat. KATHLEEN Grieein shows particular interest in Freshmen called Blocker and Merton. PAULINE Griffin—Official postmaster for all school correspondents. Lewis Hart seems on the road to being a woman hater. MABEL Hartley-—Her ambition is to pass 9B Algebra. I HOMAS Hay—Appetizing for the cows. ELIZABETH Hickox—More nonsense than common sense. CORA Hogan—Sunniest girl in Sophomore class. FRANCES Holland has a secret desire to be somebody’s sweetheart. 7 19 TSasTiaLa Top Row: Ruth Adams. Dana Armstrong. Joseph Bartlett. Fern Bell.

EVOLUTION OF A FISH A little minnow swimming in the sea, Was just as green as green could be; Happily swimming with the tide, With the goddess of pleasure his only guide. When swift from out the briny deep His claw Crab Algebra did reach. With wits and ears, with fins and brain. He dashed and darted and swam in vain. Nearly beaten by Mr. Crab so bright He swam away. Although a fright This fish looked after his escapade, He searched for new fields to invade. The English Whale and Octopus, History, Failed to keep him long in mystery: And after nine months of struggle galore, 'Twould surprise you what appearance he bore. A sober and serious Sophomore.

The Bashaha of 1926 was printed by the E. L. Steck Company. Austin, at a cost of $771. The engraving was done by the Service Engraving Company of San Antonio for $490. All photographic work was done by H. A. Maresh, Ennis, for $250. making the total cost of the book $1525. The expense was met in three ways: by subscription, by panel charges, and by advertising. f he Bashaha Staff is composed of an advisor and two assistants from the faculty, seven Seniors, three Juniors, three Sophomores, and one Freshman. Late in the fall, the editorship of the annual changed hands, thereby delaying the progress of the book. We. the Staff of 1926. extend to all who have contributed to the success of this issue of The Bashaha in any way our heartiest appreciation. We wish to thank our advertisers, who have done so much to make the annual a success in a financial way. Student body and faculty of Ennis High School, we extend our gratitude to you for your interest, co-operation, and appreciation of our efforts. It has been a pleasure to serve you. We have tried to make The Bashaha of 1926 representative of the entire student body: and we can truthfully say that ours is not merely a "Senior Annual." We realize that it contains its full quota of errors, yet we have no apologies to offer. We have done our best, and no one need be ashamed of his best. We hope the student body will read "The Cutlass” in the spirit of fun in which it was written. Then may you speedily forget it until the next time you peruse its pages and cherish no grudge against us for anything we might have said which seemed too "cutting." We hope The Bashaha of 1926 has blazed the trail and made possible the publication of a yearly Bashaha in Ennis High School. Again we entreat you that as you turn the pages of this book, the merits may overshadow the defects, for this Bashaha is your book. May it bring you joy! 9M9 26 ashaLa OPAVCfroVLW JEWELL QSQOPflE JESSE THOCIAE A?7 5 GPINO£Pim A.DV H6R A%%18K.JAGR WENDELL rpALffta ATHLETICS miutu yam m ke-immocjL olmelhollijou mmcumoa SEtilQA-f JVJUQR ASiT.

LIBRARIANS The Librarians, thinking clearly and sympathetically in terms of the needs and interests of other pupils, voluntarily practice and study library science. Meeting at noon each Monday of the school year to discuss with Miss Richmond the problems of library management, the library assistants learn the principles and details of the Dewey Decimal System of Classification. T heir technical work is as follows: The ordering, accessioning, classifying, and pre- paring for the shelves all books, pamphlets and periodicals so that they may be readily available for use: the maintaining of a practical charging system to keep account of the books and other material borrowed from the library: clearing from the tables all papers and books: the keeping of order so that the library may be used only as a place for work: the instructing in the use of reference books, and the searching for material on special assignments. From the definite service and the zeal of library assistants the teaching work is helped through the library. No group in school works harder, perhaps, than this class to allow ready access to all library books, to make the lessons more interesting. to provide training in the use of books, and to cultivate the reading habit. Thirty-six years ago, due to the efficient and kindly efforts of J. C. Watkins, then Superintendent of Public Instruction in Ennis, there was founded in the Ennis High School an institution which was the foundation of our present library. After working for five years for the promotion of good literature in the high school, the Superintendent and other interested citizens were dismayed to see the results of their work destroyed by fire. The entire library was destroyed. there not remaining even so much as the records. Undaunted, however, the school board, composed of Mayor J. C. Eoggins. 1 . D. Turner. W. D. Faris. L. C. Overhiser. D. S. Goble. J. W. Story, and J. F. Craig, re-established the library by purchasing over twelve hundred carefully selected volumes. They also provided a standing fund of three hundred dollars a year with which to buy other books when necessary. From that time until this the library has been in actual existence. However, in 1924 a general work of reorganization was underaken under the expert supervision of Superintendent J. W. O'Banion and Miss Richmond, head of the English Department in the High School. The library has since« femfeMiabT The Reading Room been under the direction of Miss Richmond, and she has classified the books according to the Dewey System. Mrs. John Weekley. of the Parent-Teacher Association, was a leading spirit in the raising of over five hundred dollars to be used for the library. This money was expended in as wise a manner as possible by the librarians in the purchasing of newer books. Later on. due to the efforts of Reverend C. O. Shugart. pastor of the First Methodist Church of this city, money was secured for the purchase of the Nelson's Encyclopedia. The library has been the happy recipient of many new and valuable books, as gifts from interested townspeople. These have added much to the library shelves and are appreciated beyond measure. It is the hope of those in charge that it will soon be possible to inaugurate an extension system, in order to supply children over the county in the rural districts with reading material, as well as the children of Ennis.  J. D. King W. F. Howard BOYS' DEBATING TEAM After long weeks of strenuous practice, which began in January, the elimination in boys' debate was staged in chapel on February 19 before the assembled school. The subject for debate this year is: "Be It Resolved, That the Child Labor Amendment to the Federal Constitution Should be Adopted.” In the discussion of the question. W. F. Howard and Chester Allen took the affirmative, while J. D. King and Herman Wood upheld the negative. All four boys are to be commended for their eloquence, earnestness, and well-developed reasoning power. The decision of the judges, Mrs. Slayton, Mrs. Smith, and Mr. Stout, was given to the negative, and J. D. King and W. F. Howard were chosen as the team to represent Ennis in the Interscholastic League Meet at Waxahachie in March. On March 6, the Ennis team engaged in a practice debate with the Masonic Home at Fort Worth. While they were in Fort Worth, they were royally entertained both at the Masonic Home and at Texas Christian University, where they had the privilege of hearing T. C. U. debate Trinity U. Another practice debate was held on March 12 with the Corsicana team at Corsicana. Ennis High School realizes her good fortune in having debaters of such superior talent and training. We expect great things for them, not only in the County Meet, but also in the District and State Meets. The Ennis team is a fitting monument to the excellent training received in the Stephen F.

Debating is only one of the several activities emphasized by this club. In 1924. under Miss Richmond's guidance, the Girl's Vocational Literary Club was organized with the general aim of developing leadership among high school girls. In order to reach a variety of interests, parliamentary practice, declaiming, extemporaneous speaking, debating, and the study of vocations are included in the club activities. Careful planning for each weekly meeting allows one program a month for each subject. The program is preceded by a business meeting conducted according to Robert's Rules of Order. Many sides of a girl's nature develop: many different types of girls are reached by the varied programs: moreover, a far-reaching influence for good in the lives of members is realized. Talented girls, such as the two in the debating team above, come to the foreground in public speaking, and develop talent for clear-cut. sincere, and effective speech. For their daily life beyond the school-room, these girl debaters, together with other club girls, through practice in public speaking and through the study of vocations, gain skill and self-confidence.

Being host to the meet for the first time in history, the Lnnis Chamber of Commerce, with Mr. Jelks Castellaw the leading spirit, did everything possible to make the visitors from all the schools over the county welcome and comfortable. A large number of cups were purchased for suitable awards, and dinner and lodging were fur nished free to all contestants and coaches. So whole-hearted was the hospitality of the people of Lnnis that the directors of the League unanimously agreed that never before had the meet received such loyal co-operation from the town in which it was held. In junior spelling Tate Parker and Gladys McDonald won the cup for first place. Brian Adams and J. D. King. Jr., won the cup for first place in boys' debate. Agnes Grych and Artie Ward second place in girls' debate, and Mattie Estes won first place in senior girls' declamation. Felix Atwood second place in senior boys’ declamation. Elizabeth Stout first place in both county and district meet in junior girls' declamation, and William Francis McCarthy third place in junior boys’ declamation. J. E. McCarthy won first place in senior essay writing, both in the county and district meets, and Lucille Sharp took second place in junior essay writing. Blaine Hollimon. however, reaped still more honors for his school than this. He won first place in extemporaneous speaking in the county meet, the district meet, and in the State meet, being awarded the large cup at Austin for Slate championship in extemporaneous speaking for high school boys and girls. George Caldwell and J. E. McCarthy were runners-up in tennis doubles, and the former in singles. The track team won second place in the meet. As a result of taking so many first and second places. Ennis High School was awarded the all-round championship cup for Class A schools in Ellis County. Page 6oc7he r?)(:X(b ) SashaLa Top Row: Rawlins. Spear. Myers. Second Row: WOOD, LIVINGSTON.

Entries for 1926 Interscholastic League Meet Although the annual is going to press before the results of this year's Meet are known, the student body is confident that we shall win even a larger number of cups this year than last. Due to the efforts of Miss Richmond Mr. Barnes, Miss Hutchins. Miss Kimbell. Miss Raphael. Mr. Neilson. and Mrs. Gray, Ennis High School has students well trained for each event. The boys’ debating team is composed of W. F. Howard and J. D. King. Jr. and the girls' team of Wilma Gaida and Ivanette Conway. In declamation, we shall be represented by Ruby Smith. Alfred Rawlins. Gladys McNeil, and Clifford Wood. The senior spelling team consists of Willie Faye Livingston and Janice Marshall, and the junior team of Helen Looney and Robert Myers. In essay writing, Josephine Caldwell proved best among the seniors, and Dorothy Rawlins will enter the junior contest. The arithmetic team is made up of Eunice Davis. Emory Speir. and Tate Parker, and in extemporaneous speaking Herman Wood will represent Ennis High School, with Chester Allen as alternate. IftashaLa Top Roil' HENRY. DUNKERLEY. BELL. TRUTH MERRITT.

JUNIOR-SENIOR BANQUET May 14, 1925 During Commencement Week. 1 925. the graduating class was entertained by the present senior class, then juniors, with an elaborate banquet, in which the “Treasure Island” motif was skillfully executed. The hall was decorated with gray Spanish moss hanging from the drop ceiling of gray cloth, and the walls were a veritable bower of trees and vines, successfully giving the effect of an outdoor scene. Even a full moon could be seen through the (trees, and stars twinkled through the mock heavens. The long table circled the room, and was decorated with toy ships, treasure chests overflowing with jewels and gold, graceful ivy. and brass candlesticks with gleaming candles. In the center of the room a miniature lake with tiny ships on it was surrounded with gray boulders, ferns, treasure chests, and parrots. Spanish moss draped over the entire scene added glamour and mystery to the occasion. The serving girls in pirate costume were an attractive feature. The toasts were given in jingles worded in nautical terms. 1 he following menu was served to the board of trustees, faculty.

The Treble Clef Club, a choral organization of girls in the High School, is under the direction of Miss Willie May Rowe, with Muriel Wetzel as accompanist. The club has been organized for several years, each year losing some good talent with graduation but developing other talent with girls taking up the club work. This year the club grew to such proportions as to necessitate a division; hence the Junior Choral Club was organized, with freshmen girls as members. The purpose of the club is better understanding of music and singing, and better choral work in the school. The members doing the required work are given one half-credit a year toward graduation. The club has been most helpful in the school activities, appearing many times in chapel and furnishing the music for commencement exercises. Besides this, their programs given in several other places have been much appreciated. The most attractive program given this year by the girls was a program of "Ye Olden Tymes" in costume. The old songs were featured in solos, duets and choruses, closing with a 'Virginia Reel. I his program reflected much credit on both girls and director. For the better appreciation of good music, the organization sponsored a concert-recital, presenting Mrs. Albert Smith, soprano, Mrs. Howard Parks, contralto, with Mrs. Phillips Jones, accompanist, all of Dallas. The club gave the two opening numbers for the-concert and, with the able assistance of Miss Sadie Richmond and their director, was able to add materially library fund of the High School. TREBLE CLEF PROGRAMS JOHN P. BOREN JR. Mbs t Fri enbly Boy- 7 ?c 1 9'} £) a sTi al a Mr. Barnes Mr. Neilscn ATHLETICS Unusual interest in athletics was characteristic of the school year 1925-26. Coaches Neilson and Barnes were confronted with the task of picking winning teams from a mass of raw material and getting last year's men whipped into shape. Mr. Barnes also served as an efficient business manager. Football came in for its share of enthusiasm and general approval on the part of all students. The games marked another milestone in athletic advancement. as Ennis played against a number of leading schools. The team started out early in September for some good, hard practice to “limber up" and “step lively." They learned not only the science of the game, but they received lessons in endurance and sportsmanship. They learned to be on the job all the while, with the necessary vim and punch. Ennis received notable recognition for honesty, clean games, and good sportsmanship. An awakened school spirit of loyalty, fostered by the yell leaders and “pep squad.” put pep into track, baseball and tennis. Hard fought battles and the desire to win made happy the hearts of the students watching their classmates on the field: but losing with a smile and defeat cheerfully suffered was an even greater achievement, and goes to make better the work and the play of the days of 1925-26, through other seasons to come. Our prospects for 1926-27 are unusually bright. With practically the same teams "great things" are expected. A knowledge of the science of football. baseball, and other sports will be increased, as we have learned that brawn is not the basis for victory. There is excellent material, and with the proper training, we are looking forward to a string of victories during 1926-27, for which the present season is laying the foundation.Top Rcw: HOUDEK.

As a result, much valuable football knowledge was gained, as a foundation for a successful season next year, although several times we had to take the small end of the score. A detailed account of the season follows:9 19 6 ftasWra ENNIS VS. KEMP When the curtain rose for the 1925 football season, the Ennis Lions were found practicing for the Kemp game. The game was played once in the Junior Auditorium. That is. the yell leaders started the Pep Squad in the right direction, and then "Overconfidence." together with the Kemp eleven, defeated our Lions to the tune of 13-6. nEPRMTT CAPTAIN W4lK (? CAPTAIN W, P 4FPP1A O APT. ELECT MOP PIS Ql WTEP SACK ENNIS VS. CORSICANA STATE HOME With the overconfidence completely destroyed, the Lions showed a marked improvement. They encountered the State Orphans Home of Corsicana, and administered a sound drubbing to the visitors. Several valuable men were "discovered” in this game. Among them were: "Buck" Armstrong, Roy Shugart. and Chester Allen. Armstrong was a consistent ground gainer when called through the line. He earned his title. “Two Yard Elmer." Shugart used his toe to a good advantage: he was death on the extra points after touchdowns. Chester Allen amazed the crowd by picking up a fumble and running forty yards for a touchdown. As the last whistle blew the score stood: Ennis 48—State Home 0. "Lions Scratch 'Em." Page 79 c' 1 ) '2 jo a sTj a b a ENNIS VS. CORSICANA R‘lin More Rain—MUD. When the Ennis Lions journeyed to Corsicana they met a team that was determined to avenge the 48-0 defeat that had been given to the State Home boys. Midst a sea of mud a terrific battle was fought. The Corsicana stands were filled with men in uniform. They played three teams against the one that was representing the "Red and White." The Lions could not cope with fresh men every quarter, and the game ended with the score. Corsicana 1 2—Ennis 0. The chief remembrance we have of the game is that the Corsicana doctors got rich (??). ENNIS VS. CENTRAL HIGH Next on the Lions' menu was Central High of Fort Worth. Here Ennis learned a great lesson. We must have more men "out" for football. Ennis had one team in Fort Worth and Central High had three teams. The Lions fought a brave battle, but they were crushed to the tune of 22-0. Here Walker turned in one of the best games of the season. He was a thorn in Fort Worth's side.v 2 Q J jasliaba i Bore N GLAPD c3M IT H . cwieprack; WILU 4IV15 P.£ D . F Art F Vi SPOOK'S CENTER ENNIS VS. NORTH SIDE 1 he North Side High School "eleven” of Fort Worth came over with a large group of "rooters.” They were expecting to have "easy sailing,” but they encountered a "brick wall." This was one of the closest games of the season. Thrills were plentiful. But a freak pass, and the inevitable had happened. North Side 7—Ennis 0, tells the tale. ENNIS VS. TEMPLE At Temple our boys were not at their best. The long ride and the cold weather contributed to the difficulties that the Lions endured. Although Ennis and Waco were the only teams in the State that scored on Temple, Henry Parma intercepted a pass and made a brilliant run for a touchdown. The scene ended with the score. Temple 36—Ennis 6. ENNIS VS. KAUFMAN The Lions had another mud-battle at Kaufman the following Friday. Although the boys fought from the first, they were defeated. Kaufman 46 and Ennis 0, tells the story. Page Si - mi -ENNIS VS. MAYPEARL In the Maypearl game the Lions earned a victory. They fought the May-pearl team to a stand-still. Ennis made one touchdown and earned still another. Walker covered a fumble across the goal line, but the referee ruled the touchdown illegal. Although after the game he said that he was mistaken, Ennis really won the game. But as it was. the score was, Maypearl 8 —Ennis 6. ENNIS VS. MEXIA The Mexia game was the final scene of the year's tragedy. The game would have been more appropriate if it had been played in boats. “Bear" Walker and Henry Parma made an exceedingly good showing in this game. But the same story was repeated: Mexia 30—Ennis 0. A few days before this game the only serious accident of the season occurred: Loyd Taylor, a valuable end, suffered a broken leg in practice. I’ayc 8.' -V  9 19 6 fiaslialia PEP SQUAD Rah! Rah! Rah! Athletics! Athletics! Athletics! The Pep Squad of Ennis High School consists of about forty of the most enthusiastic members of the school. It is ever-ready. full of pep, and stands behind all high school sports. The association is sponsored by Berniece Tannery. The members of the Pep Squad are gradually becoming skilled in concerted cheering as the years pass. This year Mr. Neilson was a very great help, due to his long experience as a leader of yells in Southern Methodist University. What student does not remember the times during Chapel when the rafters rang from our yelling, under the expert leadership of that long, tall, red-headed Coach? More enthusiasm was in evidence during the football season than at any other time of the year. The yell leaders achieved success, in consideration of the problems with which they were confronted, for instance, the number of indifferent "nonentities’’ that cluttered up the grand stand, refusing to co-operate. However, this group of students is in the minority, as good sportsmanship, especially during defeat, was an outstanding characteristic of the entire student body. MASCOT The most interesting character in athletics is Chester Snodgrass, mascot and future athlete of E. H. S. Page 8j Jjf! Hi ---- -us, =-•-—“ 7he 1 ) i Q) a sli al a Top Row: Mr. Neilson. Hubbard.

BASEBALL Although the 1926 baseball season is just beginning, enough work has been done to indicate a successful year in this sport. The following letter men are back ready to work with the raw material on the difficult schedule ahead: Bennie Stein (Captain), Jimmie Morris. Henry Parma. Wesley Parma. Joe Hubbard. Herman Wood, and John Boren. As three of these old men are pitchers and one a catcher, Coach Neilson has an experienced battery. McMullen has returned to Ennis High School after an absence of one year from the line-up. This will strengthen the infield materially. The new men are performing like veterans, and we are confident of the best team that E. H. S. has seen in many years. Although we have a rather strenuous schedule, extending from North Side, Fort Worth, to South Side. Mexia. we can see many victories ahead. The team has gained some very valuable experience through playing practice games with the Southern Pacific team, a semi professional team of the highest caliber. On account of bad weather the first three games were cancelled, but this only increases the anxiety and interest for the coming season. The annual goes to press before we have played any match games, but we can see only victories clhe 10 0 ask aba lop Row: MR. NEILSON. McNAB. TURNER. ROBERTS. Second Row: MCELROY. MATLOCK. FOWLER.

This year, though, as usual, the coach of track has had a hard time getting the boys out for practice early in the season. However, as the time for the County Meet approaches, the number of candidates increases, and Mr. Barnes has good prospects for a successful season. The following boys have been chosen to represent Ennis High at the County Meet, to be held at Waxahachie. March 26 and 27: 120 High Hurdles Turner H. Parma 100 -Yard Dash F. Morris H. Parma w.

A large number entered the School Tournament. and as this is the first time in the history of Ennis High School that such a thing has occurred, it is safe to predict that this sport will gain a great deal in popularity within the next few years. As usual, the players art greatly handicapped by the lack of good courts, but the student body is confident of a successful season this year. We are especially optimistic concerning the County Meet, as Waxahachie. our closest rival in athletics in the County, will not enter the County Meet this year, for reasons best known to themselves. Before this season. Ennis has never played tennis in competition with other schools except in the annual county meet, but this year games are to be matched with several of the larger schools. The boys representing Ennis are: George Caldwell and Wendell Franks, doubles: George Caldwell, singles. Caldwell was the singles player and one of the members of the doubles team representing Ennis last year, second place in both events having been secured in the County Meet. Both these boys graduate this spring: however, several other players are being developed, and greater interest than ever is expected in tennis for 1927. ratjc SC 0 j j a sT a! J. C. Slayton Robert Myers TENNIS—(Continued) Competition for next year's tennis team is very strong. As there are several boys in about the same class as tennis players, the right to represent Ennis High School will be decided by the amount of practice each player gets during the summer and fall. I his year is the first time that Ennis has ever encouraged junior tennis. Their tournament was played on the Y. M. C. A. court with J. C. Slayton and Robert Myers winning the doubles and J. C. Slayton winning singles. As these boys have several more years in high school, we prophesy great things for them (in case some good tennis courts are built around Ennis). Although there is no place for junior tennis in the County Meet, these boys won medals in the High School Tournament. Another phase of tennis that has no place in the County Meet is mixed doubles. There were several teams entered in this division, with Rosa Little-'M9M fcaitabT INEZ GAMBILL ROSA LITTLETON WILLIE LEE STUBBS GIRLS’ TENNIS Ranking high among the girls of Ennis High School as a competitive sport is tennis. In January, 1925. a girls' tennis club was organized. Under the leadership of Miss Pauline Worsham we had a very successful year. Competition in tennis has been increased this year by the offer of medals to winners of first and second places. The high school elimination contest in girls' tennis was held February 26, 1926, with the following results: Rosa Littleton, winner in singles: Inez Gambill and Willie Lee Stubbs, winners in doubles: Melba Willis, runner-up in singles, and Beatrice Marcia and Melba Willis runners-up in doubles. The winners will represent Ennis High School in the County Interscholastic League Meet at Waxahachie. The student body is looking forward to these teams’ winning the loving cup for the Ellis County championship. Cw GPlND WITOT? IVtf-0 -HAS HERE OlPfErflTLy PLrfTfCt?

We know this to be a fact, as Chester himself admits that he is by far our most popular boy, not only in Ennis but in Corsicana also. Elizabeth—Lizzie's just one of those very few good-looking girls which come so few and far between. Furthermore, she's her father's daughter. This is not a movie write-up. though she expects to get one some day. Ava—We can t say that I ommie and his pal are married because Tommy goes to see somebody else entirely too often for that. Ava has a very sweet disposition, and we can't understand why she does not like Miss Leslie. Jesse—Jesse is our favorite substitute for all things except girls: they accept no other. But really he could be no other way and be so "Woman Handled.” George—George is a good boy. but we just can't see it. However, he must be as Rena said be was and really meant it. In fact, George is so good that he is superior to Ennis and must leave town every week-end to help the neighboring towns corral their women. Janice—You may say, "Let's laugh," but you can't laugh like Janice Marshall. That red head, temper, and campus twist are all natural. Edna Mae—We will have to admit that Edna Mae surely has natural beauty. Anyone who can stand the rough treatment that she had in a horrible old annual office, come out with a ruined complexion, and continue to be beautiful, is certainly the winner in this age. Wendell—We do not know whether we are speaking of Wendell when we say "tennis." or "tennis" when we say Wendell. But. regardless. Wendell is some love match, which starts burning when struck.

It was a bright, sunshiny morning, and Miss Spencer had brought her dear little charges to play in the meadow, as a reward for learning their A B C's. Bi Boy Barnes and his little tootsie could be seen frolicking by themselves over the hill under the poplar trees, while Tishy Bell sat near the door of the school making mud pies, and little F. C., a manly little fellow, walked demurely about, reading his Bible and preaching to the flowers and bees. The prim spinster was carefully explaining to little Lorena why the stars don't fall, when dainty little Willy stamped her tiny feet in glee, and cried. "Charlie gave me a nasty worm, and I'm going to put it on Katie, and then she won't think her dress is so fine.” At this moment. Sadie Claire rushed up to breathlessly say, "Oh, Teacher, Buck pushed Ellie in the brook because she won't treat him like Tommie does, and Ellie's all wet and muddy. Buck is a dumb old thing, anyway.” Little Maud, complacently sitting on a knoll and thinking of the glue she had put on the soap box on which her dear teacher sat, shouted. "And. Teacher. Bonnie's mother told my mother that Bonnie stayed out till three o'clock last night.” Bonnie, contemplating flight, was rudely snatched back by her teacher, who harshly questioned the baby vamp regarding the night's escapade. The demure young creature finally confessed. "I was only making hay while the sun shone. Those high school flappers get sleepy when eleven o'clock comes, and then's when I get my best work in with their Romeos." All the while the fairy-like figure of little Katie Gray flitted about, bribing her companions with flowers to vote for her little Archibald for leader of ' Our Gang.” Suddenly a rumble was heard, the little girls' faces turned pale with fear, and all scampered to hiding places. With a roar and a growl, which turned the peaceful playground into a place of terror. J. W., the bully of the school.“OfolSI fe RasTiata The Editor works both day and night T ill her finger tips are sore. Yet some "wise crack" is bound to sav. "I've heard that one before." A poem here.

MOTHER (severely)—"But I told you to beat the rug. didn't I?” Arthur—"No. Ma'am, you told me to hang the rug on the line and then beat it." Bill Smith—"My, but you're dumb. Why don't you get an encyclopedia." I OMMYE BELL—"The pedals hurt my feet." Richmond—"Mr. Street doesn't use correct English, does he?"

He had been living for this night only for two long weeks. It was to be his first date with Janice, and he had not slept since that memorable night when she had whispered so sweetly in his ear that he might come to see her on this particular night (it being the first date she had open, for she was as popular as sin. so to speak). Finally Janice came tripping in. just like a little angel would have entered. I homas Owen thought he had never seen anyone so beautiful, so entrancing; he caught his breath.—also caught her hand: he was perfectly happy: he could live like this forever. "Janice." said he. in a passionate voice. "What do you think of the oil situation?" Janice studied for a few moments and then with a coy smile retorted. "Nothin' much." Thomas Owen loved her all the more for this, for clever girls had always been his weakness. They carried on a brilliant conversation like this for some moments. Janice in the meantime skilfully shifting the discussion to the weather.” Interlude CAME THE DAWN "But. Thomas Owen, you musn't: why. I've only just met you.” "But I feel like I’ve known you always. Janice.” "All right, then, just one little bitty time. and.—Thomas Owen, you won't tell a soul, will you?” "I swear I won't. Janice, for I love you too much for that.” So Thomas Owen squeezed her hand just one little bitty time and promised to come back soon. -----o----- SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT ENNIS HIGH SCHOOL Mrs. Littlejohn still runs the campus store, but it is a puzzle to know which side of the counter customers should stand on. However, if it were turned around she would have more customers. Fern Bell is a good nurse, even in the dark. (Taking Raymond Merritt’s word). All holidays must be taken, not given. If you want to know where Janice Marshall is. look for Jesse Thomas. Ennis High School is located in the same place on Friday afternoons as on other days. Strange hardly anyone finds it. Miss Richmond can drink a gallon of water every forty-five minutes: she never followed a circus either. The "Palace" is not a European king's dwelling. Troy Dungan is not principal of the Ennis High School. , , n fcC ' vr A M LlT sfcV SCMOOC y wer-E • ■• c,rT fsp ( OOP PKfWJ Thf c«t Pieecroav PROVE5 TO be A vAUUAHLE MDAT .kjVITATIO flM ' a j D PCUtPSE S Aut TH E OLPEH HP PR-ODUCIM6- xUlST. foOYJ i I mT THAT A PR E"TTV CONE OEE'-'aSK YA - -18 PA't WHITE OCKS" - am ,wv»tatioa’S Cost i I EACH of lmBO EP , L0KJ6- ‘pBHeSTH'iS H AVE Aw V nOa That vsje T.ffPL aV W- LOKJG- 'J "Zcu l«t£tJ «"• I JOVS soaRO. - WirH BUT e 4v.E OAV.

We. for the last time, group our tired and weary heads in communion for the final spurt toward the goal. The BASHABA is finished. It is the result of a year's tireless endeavor under the best sponsor a staff ever had. The work on the Bashaba has not been without its discords and misfortunes. Editors have gone cuckoo and made advances toward lady assistants: visitors and advisors have flocked to the office and offered their most able and needed (?) assistance, by singing love songs and snooping around the private files. Allow us to give our sincere thanks to Mrs. Archie D. Gray for her untiring energy, patience, and perseverance. We thank Mr. Street and Mr. O’Banion for their very helpful co-operation and assistance, and. last . . . We thank God that it is all over. To the Bashaba staffs of the future we offer our sympathy and most heartfelt condolences. Thiz Staff.
