All must take a part in bringing to the world lasting peace, freedom and safety. To boys and girls of high school age a great opportunity has been given to play a vital part in this great struggle for the rights of mankind. lt is entirely fitting that this should have a part-a very important part'-in the school life of today. In our own school we have kept foremost in our minds and hearts the needs of our country, and have responded gladly and heartily to every call. A greater opportunity for service. however, will soon be given us. Yacation time is almost at hand. Thousands of men from every field of labor have been called into service, and thousands more will he called in the near future. There will necessarily be a serious shortage of labor. In many sections of our country this shortage is already being felt. XVe must not idle away this summer. XYC can do much toward filling the places left vacant by the men who have gone. Many forms of work are open to boys, work in offices, in chemical labora- tories, and in stores and shops of various kinds. For girl workers the field is by no means limitedt The Government offers many positions, and office work is open to them. One of the most healthful and pleasant forms of work which we can all do is gardening and farming. XYe must win this war for which our men are fighting and dying, and it is essential that we produce an abundance of food and raw material of every kind. 13 , i It is an urgent call-a duty and privilege which must not be allowed to go unheeded. It is a part of this paramount task we are facing-the task of winning the war. Let us say with President Wilson: "To such a task we will dedicate our lives and our fortunes, everything that we are and everything that we have, with the pride of those who know that the day has come when America is priv- ileged to spend her blood and her might for the principles which gave her birth and happiness, and the peace which she has treasuredf, A Challenge ' There is a great challenge brought out by the war which the upper-classmen of high school are called upon to meet. In the past year most of the young men, men a little older than we, have answered the call of humanity, and thousands of boys have been left without leaders. Do you realize the seriousness of this condition? England did not. During those first two years of war, when England was straining every nerve in an effort to bring the entire resources of the country into play against the enemy, her boys were forgotten. The results that followed were tragic. juvenile crime increased forty-eight per cent. Will we be forced to face a condition like this in America? A great responsibility rests with the boys in the higher semesters of high schools to keep such a condition from developing among the boys of America. Though often hidden, there is a great deal of admiration and respect for the older boys on the part of the younger boys. Leaders in high school, especially those who are prominent in athletics, are taking a part in shaping the character and ideals of those younger boys with whom they come in contact. It is a great oppor- tunity to lead the boys to a clean, wholesome, invigorating life. 14 R ON 9 -- -., -ww -r--.vim JOHN M.

It is a. day when we are both proud and sad, proud to know that we have accomplished one era in life, sad to know that we part, some going one way, some another. To you who are behind us, we can only offer our sympathy and the example of our school life. Friends, we welcome you to our Class Day exercises with great joy. Your presence inspires us, your encouragement will uplift us. This is the day to which we have looked forward with awe and uncertainty for four busy years. As fresh- men, the day seemed a mystery, for the time when we should be called seniors lay far in the future. Nevertheless, the anticipation of wearing a cap and gown has borne us through many hardships. At last four years of joy and sorrow, of sunshine and shadow, have gone and we are seniors. The glory of achievements 1S ours. i Today, love for our class and the Ensley High School fills our souls. To- day, our dreams for the future are bright and we long to go forth into the world, there so to labor, so to serve, so to accomplish, that it may be truly said, "We have not lived in vain." For our classmates whose friendships we count invaluable in our school life, we can only wish that the future may be as full of joy and fruitfulness as the years we have spent together. We would tell them that the truest happiness comes from the knowledge that work is well done, that a trust is always kept. PAUL CLAYTON, 1918. -.-.-.ibli-, Prophecy for Class of 1918 just as the Indians of old, before preparing to go on a long journey, rose at dawn, when the red sun beamed from the nearest hill, and went to the medicine man, the great prophet, that he with palms uplifted might bless them and call the good spirits together that they might be with every warrior, so the seniors have chosen me as their herald to foretell their future, before they start on the lqng journey of a new and different life. The hard-earned diploma is now very near and we have almost reached the first goal. Before entering upon this new career it behooves me to make known to you the things which have been revealed to me, their prophet. The future of each senior has been made by the stars. By the constellations I see that each senior has a brilliant future awaiting him. ' If the stars speak the truth, and I know that they do, everything I shall tell will come to ass. p It is fitting that the great star, jupiter, the king of all stars, should reveal to me the 'future of our president, Paul Clayton, who is destined for the life of a chemist. During and after the war he will devote himself to the making of high 36 1 ..,. . , explosives, by the uses of nitroglycerin, guncotton and nitric acid. His life will be one of adventure and thrilling incidents. . Saturn shone unusually bright last night, and as I watched, the star suddenly burst into splendor, and in the middle written in letters of gold was the name of Anna Barber, our secretary. She will gain her fame as a great lawyer and as the president of several literary societies. At the age of twenty-five she will marry a young author of great renown. The most independent girl in the class, the shyest among the boys, and one of the very smartest, is Vera Willard. She will be a happy bachelor girl, also a great librarian in New York City, noted for her knowledge of English and Amer- ican literature. The night was all dark except for the soft glow of the full moon, and as I sat watching the evening shadows and thinking of the different seniors, what do you think? The man in the moon stepped out and in his place stood the gold- dust twins, hand-in-hand. I laughed, for I realized that the future of the gold- dust twins in our class was going to be told. Freda will be a great singer in the years to come and travel the world over. Mildred will be a great ballet dancer, famous for her interpretations of the Greek and Italian dances. Something unusual happened this afternoon. I was driving down a long country lane in a one-horse buggy, when the horse became frightened and I was thrown out, striking my head on a large rock. I immediately saw "stars," In the midst I saw Marvin Sandefur seated at a high desk, pen in hand, diligently writing away. Glancing over his shoulder, I noted that he was editing a news- paper called the "Man's Home Journalf' Under the society column I noted these interesting items: They Say That: Benjamin Stokes of Ensley hitched his horse in front of Miss Bernice VVebb'S house Sunday afternoon. Frank Troncale is wearing out Miss Rosa Kaufman's best parlor chair. If a certain blue-eyed boy does not let Miss Marie Stead alone there will be an elopement. The weather bureau was just as interesting recalling such as: , If it does not rain it is sure to be a dry spell, and if it does it is sure to be wet. Sunday was tolerably fair, except for a high wind from the north. The weather for vicinities for next week will be warm if it does not turn cold. Farther down I saw these advertisements: Wanted: A position by line seamstress.-Virginia Richards. ' Wanted: A high salaried position by professor of history. See Herman Dean. The scene passed away and when I arose the night was clear. The smell of weiners and sour kraut reached my nostrils. I turned to find the source of this welcome odor when I perceived a shooting star fall behind a little restaurant. Thence I directed my steps and to my surprise and delight, Will McClellan greeted me with a long red weiner in one hand and a bunch of kraut in the other. I always knew that Will's weakness was weiners and rolls and I should not have been so surprised at his chosen career. One morning I awoke with a shudder, for I had dreamed that the prophecy was due and I had not begun it. I arose and dressed and sat down at the win- dow, sleep having utterly vanished. Mars seemed to fairly gleam in his war 37 garb. He carried a spear and a shield and on his shield these words were writteng "On December 21st a great call will come for Red Cross nurses and among those enlisted will be Susan Lusk, Marian Brown, Pauline jones, Myrtle Savage, and Claudine Etheridge. It will so happen that the Ensley students will be as- signed to a Belgium hospital ship. Marian Brown will be head-nurse, with Pau- line and Susan as her assistants. Lo! handsome soldiers, just recovering from trench wounds will be qn board. They will require amusement as well as atten- tion. Myrtle and Claudine will be often seen offering condolences and motherly affection." Mars vanished and later Venus gazed in at my window. Venus was weep- ing! I wondered why she was so sad until she explained. "Child," she said, "if you were to go to Italy and wander through the great cathedrals on the 'Longa Via' you would find at the very end of the way an underground passage. A scholar sits there, morn, noon and night, translating the Latin and Greek mythology and delving into the musty histories. By the light of a candle he reads, unmind- ful of food or dress. He cares for no one and no one cares for him, thinking him just an eccentric old man." "But, why," I asked, "are you telling me all this ?" "Because, child," she said, 'the graduated when you did and you knew him as John Beecher." I sighed as I thought of such a great change. Stars foretell of stars. A revelation has been made to me that from our graduates shall come forth a movie star, a girl that has, like Billy Burke, a glory of red hair. If you were to happen in a movie picture show several months from now I have not a doubt but what you will see the likeness of Alma DeShazo on the screen. What would you say if I were to tell you that from our class of seniors two great musicians will be discovered? It is incredible, but, nevertheless, it is true. A great singer, great as Caruso himself, known to us as "Hallie" Drummond, and his accompanist, Miss Lillian Gardner, will tour the world over. They will be heard in the famous music halls of Europe and great masters from far and near will Hock to hear them. , It was a wee baby star that crept upon my pillow and whispered Nellie's future. A quiet, demure, little stenographer will she be in a great city, but for how long I cannot tell, for the star vanished and I was in a submarine under the sea. I peeped out the window to see my surroundings when a shrapnel shell struck me on the head. Again I saw stars, and they seemed to tell me to look in the shell. I looked on the inside of it, and engraved on the copper lining was this prophecy: "Lo and behold! there will be situated on Nineteenth and Third Avenue of the Magic City, a beauty parlor, and an informataion bureau. Cn the door these words will be printed: "All Information Given Concerning Love and How to Win the Masculine Heart. Find Out the Way to joyful Wedlock. Apply within.-Misses Woods, Little and Wiggins, Instructors." I was never more astonished in all my life. Nevertheless, I was glad to re- ceive this valuable piece of information. I heard cheering above and the sound of many bands. I cautiously stuck my head out again and saw a great battleship flying the colors of Uncle Sam. I cheered in spite of the bursting and spluttering of bombs in the water. The Stars and Stripes were gallantly streaming and the Stars called out, "Hal Ha! on board this ship are sailors great and small, from 38 the greatest hero to the humblest cook." Here the cook appeared on deck, with a wooden spoon in hand and to my great surprise I recognized Barney Bonfield. This was my first knowledge that Barney could cook. Behind Barney came the admiral, humbling, begging for something from the wooden spoon. I was dazed for a moment, for I seemed to remember this characteristic of some one in High School. AI paused and examined the features more closely and it was an old grad- uate, Herman Smith. Something went wrong with the internal machinery of the old boat I was riding in, for it suddenly shot forward and I found myself on the Isle of Green- wich. The Aurora Borealis illumined the whole place. It seemed to direct its beams, however, to a certain spot. There I discovered, carved on a block of ice, these words: "May 30, 1918. Greenwich. And it shall come to pass that a prophet shall pass this way searching for the forecast of the stars for the Senior class. Tell her to go to Texas." This was all. I was deeply disappointed, but started on my trip, still wondering what Texas had to do with the prophecy. I boarded a train and was sitting deep in thought when the conductor asked for my ticket. It was a strangely familiar, though feminine, voice that I heard. and when I looked up, whom should I see but Hazel McElroy! I was still more astonished, however, when she said that the engineer was also an Ensley High School graduate, by name, Mary Derryberry. Such patriotic girls! I searched Texas over, trying to find a clue to that prophetic reading. I was becoming discouraged, when one afternoon I happened to go by a great ranch. Perceiving a tall, angular woman at a well, I stopped to find out my whereabouts. Directions having been given, she asked me very abruptly if I did not know her. I looked again, and to my horror I recognized the once plump Josephine Robinson. I had no sooner recovered from this shock when I received a still greater one. A very stout, bearded, untidy man slouched in the door, and Josephine intro- duced him as her husband and asked if I knew him. I humbly replied, "No," and was in return informed that it was an old classmate, Nat Clark. Nat and Josephine married and living in such an outlandish place! Well! Well! I left for the city next morning, now happy, indeed. I reached San Antonio late in the afternoon. I heard the whirring and buzzing of machines overhead. I saw that they were ready to descend, so I waited. In a few moments a dozen khaki-clad youths advanced. Where had I seen those two in front before? Oh, yes, why, of course, I knew them! They are Margaret Gallagher and Alma Oakley. The girls were ready to sail for France when the country called them. As I traveled homeward, I wondered why the careers of so many Seniors had been mapped out in Texas when I remembered that it was called the "Lone Star State." I passed through several mining camps while on my way back home, and in the last one I noticed a great commotion. I drew nearer to learn the cause. I saw, not twenty yards away, a great, masculine-looking woman standing on a grocer's box, loudly expounding the doctrine of woman's rights. I stopped and rubbed my aching head. Where had I heard that voice before? After the meet- ing was over, I went up and introduced myself and she in turn told me her name was Miss Winnie Beverly Carter, universal leader of woman's suffrage. You could have knocked me down with a feather! The quiet, unassuming, stately Winnie B., a suffragette! Impossible! Yet there she stood before me, loudly, 39 yea, very loudly, declaring her superiority above mere man lu Well, wonders will never cease! I rapidly made my exit from that place and was hurrying to my train, when a large, ragged woman with a cart, accosted me, wanting me to buy peanuts or nicely popped popcorn. Out of the pity of my heart I purchased a bag of each and was turning away when she said, "Fatty, donlt you know me F" I turned and looked and, Oh, my goodness! could you guess who it was? My old pal, Eunice Sloan, and in such a disreputable condition! I afterwards learned that it was not her profession, but that she was doing it for charity. How like Eunice that was! I, at last, caught my train and was soon in old Alabama again. I was tired out and spent my time mostly lounging around and reading magazines. One day I chanced upon a new magazine called "The Comet." On the very first page was a large picture of john Akin. What had he done to deserve such an honor? "The Greatest Physician Living-Specialist in All Children's Diseases," it read. That's strange. I thought john would be manager of some newspaper staff from all signs he showed at school. Another picture of a high school graduate! Who can it be? Why it is Allen Cannon, our great cartoonist. Yes, he is yet. "Mr, Cannon has fulfilled his highest ambition. He is now a full-fledged lawyer and wins most of his cases by the cartoons he draws." It is not strange that those boys worked themselves so high, for if ever boys had the making of great men in them, they did! Why, how honored Ensley should feel! Here's another graduate's picture! "Mr and Mrs. J. R. Falkner of Ensley announce the approaching marriage of their daughter, Gladys, to Count De'Luck of Lipscomb, Ala." Ah! Gladys well deserves such luck after all! I closed the magazine with a sigh, and picked up another from Utah. Under the society column I noticed this interesting item: "Mr. james McPherson of Ensley recently took into holy matrimony fifteen beautiful girls. Mr. Pascal Anderson served as best man." I laughed as I thought how James had never outgrown that boyhood fancy for girls. In the want column this ad appeared: "Wanted, by bachelor of 40, a wife, between the ages of 17 and 30. Must be beautiful.-Pascal Anderson." I threw the paper down and started for a walk. It chanced that the path lay by the side of the "Orphans' I-Iome of the 'Eastern Starf " All was running smoothly at the home until a terrific shriek rent the air. The matron and nurses ran to the rescue of the unfortunate child, who had found a wasp's nest.' As the frightened women turned around I recognized them. You could not guess in a million years who they were. Ruth Pitts was the matron and Dortha Reynolds and Evelyn Erickson were her assistants! They told me they had just heard from Marv Kate Park and Mary Vedder. Mary Kate, it seemed, had fallen in love withia khaki-clad fellow and married himgand they both had sailed for France, he to fight for his country and she to care for him. Mary had been elected recently as president of the Older 'Girls' Council of the United States. I re- membered seeing Mary's little Sunday school class one Sunday morning long ago. I bade the girls good-bye and hastened homeward. It started raining and I stopped at a little sideshow in the circus grounds for shelter. It was very dark 40 I ' IT' ' f--Waals-'P'weffifwwfaw' inside, but I, at last, distinguished an alcove curtained off. I approached and at the top were these words: "The Greatest Wonder of the Twentieth Century. Only True Fortune- Teller !" I stepped in and was met by a tall, dark woman dressed in Arabic style. She told my fortune in blood-curdling tones, but finally laughed. I looked up quickly and she had thrown off her mask and could you believe it? It was no other than Gladys Poole! I was overjoyed at finding my long-lost chum. We then went out to supper at a little tea-room and were served sandwiches and tea by the proprietors, themselves, Misses Newman and Hoehn. We had a small family reunion and I learned that Ruth Palmer was teach- ing Latin in a country high school in Tennessee. I also learned that all four of these graduates had been disappointed in love and so had chosen these vocations. It was dark when I finally started home, and the stars were high in the sky. I noticed that the group called the "Seven Sisters" sparkled unusually bright, and as I watched, the stars bore these names: "Myrtle Richards, Irma Lee Caw- thorne, Margaret Norris, Elizabeth Maddox, Edith McClain, Kate Routledge and Marie Williams. Under the names was this prophecy: "Old age, prosperity, hap- piness and blessings in abundance will follow them through life. They will marry young and their children and children's children will live in prosperity and peace 3" and so as the stars dimmed and these words faded away, I Won- dered if I, the fifty-ninth of the Senior class, should have no future, when a brilliant comet flashed by and on its tail fiashed a picture of an ugly, crabbed, old maid. . ' CLAR1cE H.ARRELL, 1918. ,,,.,l,..--i-. Looking Forward QClass Oratiouj Classmates and Friends : The speech I am about to make to you is attuned to the spirit and fact of war, for this should be the greatest question and the only question of the day. How many of us have come to realize that we are now living through the darkest hour of the history of America, that we are engaged in a world warg and that we are witnessing the crisis, which shall determine whether autocracy or democ- racy shall dominate! Did you ever come to think about it, that America is fighting for her life and that unless every man, woman and child does his or ber part in the great struggle for democracy that America will die and will be trampled on by the heel of Prus- sianism? America is unbeatable if united, not, if otherwise. This is the world's war and there are only two issues-world liberty or slavery for all. There can be no draw. We win or we lose. It is up tg America and to each one of us to do our utmost in the great cause. That contemptible phrase of "doing one's bit" went out of fashion when the first American soldier fell on the French battle front, because we are beginning to'realize every day American men are making the supreme sacrifice for us, and 41 --.--vv-,,,r-.- none of' us should be contented to do only a bit, but should be willing to give up all we have, make any sacrifice and incur any displeasure that we may help to win this war in defense of American honor. Today, the nation-the country Washington fought for and Lincoln saved- is in peril! We are called to service. Let us at home do our part in the great work. A great American apostle of peace has said that the "best way out is looking for- ward." This is true, my friends, for if we expect to gain victory and to magic this world a place fit to live in, we must look forward, and in looking forward and dreaming of the day when we will all be treated right, we must now show what we can do. Our young men, at the naQon's call, are postponing their life work, and are risking their lives that they may defend what we most value and love on earth. We, at home, assured of safety because they have gone, must organize our- selves together, become a cohesive body spiritually and politically, and say: "We will back you up. Together we will win the war." Over in France a war-sick nation is turning its eyes hopefully toward America. Statesmen and peasants alike await the tread of American power. Ships, guns, submarine destroyers, food, men, and then more ships, more guns, more submarine destroyers, more food and more men-all these do the Allies ex- pect in abundance from America. ' Germany ponders what we shall do. Indeed, to all Europe the United States spells victory or defeat. Their "over there" is really "over here." What shall it be, dear friends? Are we going to sit still now and watch our country, the never defeated, die for our help? Are we unwilling to sacrince a little now that we may not have to sacrifice all we have to Germany in the future? Will we begrudge the lending of our dollars to back up our gallant home defend- ers to the limit? Can we hesitate about it for a single day? Now is the hour for every living American to listen to the voice of his coun- try and his God, for if ever there was a time when the voice of God spoke to men it is speaking to Americans today. What can I do? Has this question ever come to any of you? Have you ever come to consider what your task is and how each individual may help? Allow me to enumerate a few of the many things which we can and must do: First, invest all the money we can spare in Liberty Loans and Thrift Stamps, for our country needs every penny which every man, woman and child can lend and save in order to feed, clothe, arm and equip the soldiers and sailors of America. For we must remember that if we do not help the Liberty Loans we may have to subscribe to an indemnity to Germany. Second, we must eat fairly. We must read what Mr. Hoover says about the use of food and by doing this we will be much healthier. Third, we must be loyal to our Allies, who are fighting for us for the world's liberty, and read and understand all about the war and oppose any talk of peace until peace means the end of all war, except with the consent of the people. Our only duty now is to win victory and maintain our national honor. We should not look forward to any peace until we can have the sure place of victory. 42 The time for talk is a thing of the past. We mu t now look forward to the day when the world will be free. Now is the time for us to act, and prove our belief in America and all her liberty means. The brain of America thrills with one impulse, the soul of America is in- spired with one hope, the heart of America beats with one desire, the lips of America breathe but one prayer that we may gloriously win this war, establish the primacy of democracy and prove to all races, kindreds and peoples that America can and will defend her liberties. GLADYS POOLE, 1918. 1,l..,.i...--if The Complete, Uncensored Statistics of the Marvellous Class of 1918 .i.- Dear Classmates : I feel that you are indeed honored in having me address you this morning. As I stand here my thoughts roam back to the good old day of '08, when our school could not boast of an enrollment of 600. At that time the only students were "Hallie" Drummond and Ethel Woods. These two have shown their usual good sense by waiting to graduate with the class of '18, When you imposed upon me the business of compiling your statistics, I felt unequal to the task, so I resorted to books for guidance. In my search I read 29 almanacs, 13 encyclopedias, 4 dictionaries and 3 cook books. I finally arrived at this definition: a statistician is an amalgamated, unsophisticated ignorantly ed- ucated depository, commonly termed the compiler or prognosticator of facts per- taining to the condition of the people, their properties and talents. I shall not mention the talents, for our vacant faces sadly bespeak their absence. But I will indulge in a lengthy discussion and enumeration of our prop- erties. For convenience, let us liken this class of '18 to one large family. As the famous Heinz family, we have 57 varieties. One-fourth are human, the rest are only girls. As a whole our family weighs 3 tons, 13 pounds and 4 ounces. The heavyweight championship is hotly contested by Marie Stead and Barney Bon- field, while Elizabeth Maddox has the lightweight cinched. If we were to stand on each other's shoulders our height would equal that of the Washington Mon- ument. Hence we could give our services to Uncle Sam to warn him of air raids. Our tallest brother is 76.5 inches short, while our smallest sister can barely stretch 5 feet. When I think of the sleepless nights we have spent over "Trig.," I wonder we are not all gray-headed, but such is not the case, for I see there are 24 brown- headed, 30 black-headed, and 3 red-headed members of our family. Such colors, if intermingled, would rival one of Kress' diamonds. The colors of our eyes vary as much as that of our hair. I find we possess 20 brown ones, 15 green, 33 blue, 27 black, 9 hazel, 8 camouliaged and 3 glass. If these eyes were combined, by the law of sines, it is found that its diameter would be 221 feet. With it we could find the butter on the bread served in the lunch room, or possibly see the point to Mr. Smith's favorite jokes. Why, we could even see tacks at the bottom of the Pacific ocean. 43 - gag-.-,-f'f:"t' If all of our feet, including Nat Clark's, were made into one it would be 120 feet long. Again using our "Trig." formulae we find it would require 593,833 113 steps to cross the Atlantic. It could be used as a foot-bridge across our rivers. From the foregoing description one might judge that our feet were the largest part about us. But on careful measurement we End that our heads, including Frank Troncale's, have a total circumference of 127 feet and 3 inches. These heads being made into one and used as a reservoir would supply Pratt City with water for a year. By Falknerls law of combustion the weight of the brains is equal to W dial multiplied by the circumference. Therefore our brains weigh 10 pounds. Classmates, just think what is possible with this enormous amount of gray matter With it we could do all our work, including chemistry and music, in 20 minutes. By our imaginative instincts we could even see the Civil War as Miss Ross would have it done. Every one in our family is a good sleeper. We have slept 1,460,340 hours in the past four years. The total would have been 1,46O,345, but Rosa Kaufman had a date once at the Lyric. That reminds me of our chief source of amuse- ment. We visit the Lyric, according to Miss Ligon, 24 times a week. Hence we have been 3,456 times since entering school and have wasted 396400. At first this may seem extravagant, but when you consider that each of us earns 310.00 a day, by attending school, it is not so bad. When Mr. Smith pays the amount due us we intend to build an ideal school in which there will be no monthly themes to be written. I A Though our family contains no Sammies or Tommies, our patriotism is shown by our having a Gardner. At all times she may be seen busily Hoehn in the Parks or digging Pitts in the Woods. Her little Palmferjs have become quite Brown turning over Clay-tonfsj of it. She Stokes the furnace until her Akin hands require the soothing effects of Sloan's liniment. To protect us from the Savage we have A. Cannon, to guide us, a Dean, to shave us, A. Barberg and to wade in, a Poole. Among us you find such great men as Pascal, Clark. Jennings, Pitts, Beecher and-Barney. Siam has nothing on us for Cinj Stead of the Siamese, we have the Levy twins. Seriously, though, fellow classmates, as our happy school days draw to a close, I feel a strange tearing at my heart and I know you feel the same. We are about to leave pleasant memories and beloved teacher. Ere long we shall be separated and our fonner pleasures will be only a memory, but let us hope that the good-will and friendship of our fellow students will go with us through lifeis journey. WILL MCCLELLAN, Class Statistician, '1918. 44 Class Poem All hail to the bravest of Hyers Who Hy o'er the Boches line! All hail to the submarine chasers Whose courage and work are so fine! All hail to the Allies' sure gunners, The long range that never will stop! Hurrah forthe United States Sammies Who shout and go "over the top l" All hail to the whole Allied Army! All hail to the navy brave! Hurrah for our great Flag and Nation, And the Freedom we're fighting to save! All hail, every citizen, loyal To glorious stripes and stars! All hail, every proud Ensley Senior, For nothing your way now bars! As soldiers in life's greatest battles Welll fight till our work is done. As long as the war is in Europe We'll fight till that victory is won. But always, dear Ensley, we'll love thee, And ever the Old Gold and Black Shall wave in the hearts that enshrined them And bring precious memories back. lVl.XRY KATE PxRKr 1918 45 Belgium-The Saorince for Democracy 1 C Class Essayj And the world was at peace. No echoes of ancient wars lingered, seem- ingly no war-cloud rumbled in the distance, no aged warrior desired to tell of by-gone valor, no ship sailed the deep, bearing as its burden soldiers and ammu- nition, no new graves, with their tiny crosses, dotted the plains, none were un- happy, the world was at peace. In this time of peace there dawned a day-one of nature's own days, sent from ethereal regions to a peaceful World. Yet, at the close of this day there might he heard a distant moaning coming from the far- away horizon. lt was a low, uncertain moaning, yet distinct. As the day faded into dusk a gloom settled like a pall over the sky, rendering everything indistinct. At last a sound like the roaring of a vast Hood broke the stifling silence,-then a blinding lurid Hash seemed to wrap everything in flame. It was as if the pillars of the universe had given way. The foundations of The Hague were shaken as a giant shakes a child's toy. Within its historic walls was Democracy, whence comes the light of the world, the light that shines through the darkest darkness. Near to Democracy sat the Fates, Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos, with their ever-present shadows hovering behind them in the form of witches. All were peaceful and quiet except the shadows, who seemed as ill at ease as the tempest without. Before the throne of Democracy was the world, like a crystal, seemingly pure and bright, but contain- ing and revealing strange events in its course. Without The Hague the fury of the wind spent itself and the rain began to fall heavily. A sort of calm settled over the universe while Democracy sat gazing into the depths of the crystal world. Occasionally he moaned like one in pain, which was a sign that he had come to the sudden chasm of the Future. As he sat gazing, Clotho continued her endless spinning, while her two sisters with never- tiring eyes, watched the spun thread. The crisis had come-the prophecy would soon be heard. All was in silence except the rustling, uncertain sound that came from the witches. Suddenly the crystal cracked and from it slowly came a hazy mist, rising, always rising. At last the blue-like mist settled over and around the body of the shadow of Clotho. The body being covered, there came from it a voice, and, lol it was the voice of the prophet. Who is responsible for what Fate has woven into his life? The voice still small, distinct, prophesied that a black and threatening war-cloud hung low over the world, that within it De- mocracy and Autocracy were in a struggle for supreme power, and finally that one nation of the world must be sacrificed for Democracy and for the other nations. As this was finished The Hague trembled and all was bare and silent. What nation must be sacrificed for Democracy in the fulfillment of the prophecy? It was the inevitable duty of the witches to determine, and accord- ingly they gathered around their cauldrom, which is kept eternally burning with the dried branches of the?-the symbol of death. No one knows what decree will issue froth from the cauldrom, The shadow of Clotho stands dis- mally stirring the contents of the cauldrom, and as they bubble and boil and as 46 . 'A fafifliwrssafeffiffi ' she stirs there appear the symbols of the nations-the beautiful fleur-de-lis from freedom-loving Franceg a rose, pure and white, gathered from the dewy gardens of Englandg from happy Italy is a corner of her tri-colored flag, there is the royal ensign of Belgium merrily bubbling, and as she stirs a reHection of red, white and blue of the United States shines clearly through the bubbles. Surely the Fates had gathered the earthly nations into the cauldrom and were boiling them to determine what nation should be sacrificed. From the boiling cauldrom there rises a heavy mist which slowly winds its way toward the heavens. In this mist rests the destiny of a nation even as rests the life of Democracy, for when Atropos shall have cut the thread of its life it will settle on the unhappy country. One beautiful day, when all seemed content, the mist settled. On a pure and peace-loving country it fell, and, as we today know, this country was Belgium. "Que sera, sera." No man or god was responsible for Belgium's sacrifice to the terrors of Autocracy, for Democracy and for the world. Her sacrifice formed no new epoch in history. 'Twas ever thus since the beginning. Destiny says that someone must suffer for the life of others, and in this instance Belgium gave her life's blood that we might live and enjoy happiness. Though Fate seemed cruel and unjust in her decision, let us strive with mind and soul to repay Belgium for her great sacrifice.

We may be mischievous, we may be jolly, But all the teachers, think this is folly. When we're trying to be good, We are always misunderstood. So what's the use. They even say the girls are "prissy," And the boys they often call "sissy." We are trying to be dignified, But what's the use, we are only "guyed." Maybe the teachers think we're crazy, But, honest, we try not to be lazy. So what's the use. Next year we will better be, If you can't believe it, just wait and see, For this is truly our greatest desire, To the height of juniors we aspire. You may not believe that we mean this, If not, you're only one more on the list. So what's the use.

I want to sing, sing, sing, like those happy little birds that are warbling and trilling their songs of spring and mating-time, .until it seems as their little hearts would fairly burst. And the flowers are so dainty, so lovely. What a dreary place this world would be without them! There are violets, sosoft and velvety and purple. There are roses, so sweet, so radiant in their new bright-colored dresses, and there are timid little primroses, so delicate, so fragile, lifting their sweet faces to the sun for their morning kiss. It would take the most won- derful poet in the world to express all this loveliness, and I think that even he would prove inadequate. Everything is so new and alive, and I do love to go, early in the mornings, for a long, long walk in the woods. I love to seethe "green things a-growin','l for, like the poet, "it is my faith that every flower enjoys the air it breathesfl And I love to hear the mysterious beckoning voices of the forest. I like to imagine that they are the voices of the wee sprites and elves and gnomes from Fairyland. Sometimes, if I believe real hard, I think I can see them dancing around and winking at me, then hiding, only to jump out from behind some great oak tree or from behind some stone or flower, laughing and teasing me with impish glee. When one is sixteen, and very romantic, and the month is April, that happy, capricious month, one is apt to have dreams. And such flights my fancy takes sometimes, for it is said that "in the spring a maiden's fancy turns to thoughts of lovef' On these heavenly nights, when the whole world is hushed and still, and there is moonlight everywhere, at my window, on the flowers, on the trees, there comes to me the wildest, strangest, sweetest dreams. Oh, what is the secret of this sweet, elusive enchantment which comes to me, I wonder? Spring, with its fragrant, lilting breezes, and its faint, sweet odors, seems to lure and tempt me. I laugh to forget everything in this prosaic world of ours and to throw aside all thoughts of care and pain and strife, and follow the Vvildy ringing Pipes O'Pan, singing and dancing, and laughing, down a won- derful straight white road that gleams like a silver ribbon-the Road O'Dreams- into a far-off fairyland-the Land Where Dreams Come True. And always in this dream there is another. As yet he is only a vision, an ideal, but some day he will come, I know he will, my Dream Prince. He will come, I know -not how, nor when, nor where, but he will come to claim me for his own. And then I see -but, oh, I cannotitell the things I see. And I' have another dream. I dream of a new day, when the dawn shall break, golden fair, and the birds shall sing with more joy and freedom. I dream of a day when the world will be at peace, when that beast across the waters shall be slain, and Our Boys come marching home, and our Flag, that eternal emblem of honor, purity and freedom, shall float on the air and the voices of spring shall ring with shouts of joy, freedom and content. But even now, when the world is at war, and the days are dark and foreboding, I feel -that 'fthe world is so full of a number of things that Ilm sure we should all be as happy as kings." ' GLADYS LYLE, 1919. 72 rI5?.azmjgir.55-xQA,fqF:.l:::I, at V WM ,,. Everything That Falls on This Side of the Fence is Mine -,L-. lt happened on a cold December day, when the snow was rapidly covering the housetops, and everyone had the Christmas spirit, when the very air itself seemed mystified and the most abhorring thought that could have entered a per- son's mind was the command, "You must remain indoorsf' It was on this day that Dot's father had given her the command not to go skating, because Bob, het most desired friend, was to be among the crowd. The wind, the crowd, the skates themselves, seemed to give an imploring little cry to come. Dot could not understand why her father should be opposed to Bob's Com- pany because their fathers had disputed over political matters. As she sat there by the window she noticed a large, ripe persimmon in the very top of the tree in her own yard. She remembered how the two families had even argued over the tree and how it had at last been stopped by the promise that everything that fell on Bob's side of the fence belonged to him. She determined to procure the per- simmon, as it would at least keep her satisfied for a few minutes. With this determination she stealthily crept out of the house and climbed upon the fence. Suddenly she slipped and over the fence she went! Her father heard her scream as she fell and immediately ran to her rescue, but Bob reached her first. Her father made several ejaculations and then commanded Bob t0 bring her to him. "Sorry, sir, but you can't have her," returned Bob. "Remember, everything that falls on this side of the fence is mine." LUCILE TURNER, 1919. Timmie's Wireless From bonnie Ireland with its hills and rills, Where the banshee reigns and the nixies prance ln the softening twilight, a young Irish boy Wandered, searching for life, for adventure and joy, A 'Til he came to the war-stricken trenches in France. He found life there in a struggle with deathg - The adventure he craved in the battle's fray, There was no one to care if his young life was lost, And right must be won at whatever cost, And the boy was willing that his life should pay. So he rushed to the battle with a will and an aim, And loved the foe he fought to destroy. His eyes flashed blue as the Shannon's waves. And his laughter came light as its silvery sprays. As he tried to cheer some dying boy. 73 He found in a shell-torn trench one time A German lad wounded and pale with frightg Patting his arm with a blithesome smile, Said, "Faith, ye're too foine a lad to spileg Sure, here now's ye're toime for Hightf' As a shadowy figure into safety ran, It implored a blessing on an Irish head. But Germans repay in the German's own way, And his comrades found him silent and pale where he lay, The coat o'er his honest heart sodden and red. He said as they came, "Ye're here and Oi'm gladg Will ye do a little thing for me? Ye see There's a spot in Ireland thatis dear to me heart, In me loife, in me dreams, it has taken a partg 'Tis the grave 0' the mither o' me." 'X 'Tis covered with the 'Little Three Leaves 0' Luckf And she said to me whin she left me, 'Jist ye whisper oft to the shamrock dear, and tell me how ye're keepin'. Be good and just and brave, me boy, and I'll be glad in me sleepin'g The shamrock will drop me your message' "So it matters not where in Irelandls vales, Or in the midst of the battle's ding I breathe a message in the air and tell her how I love her. It reaches her ear through a shamrock stem and she answers thro, another 'I'm proud of you now, son Tim., "So plant a little shamrock over me grave, 'Tis a bond 'tween us, mither and son. I'll put me lips to its little roots and this message to her I,ll be breathin'g The wind'll catch it as it reaches the top and waft it on to old Erin. 'Let's play, dear, me works all done., " VVhen his comrades sat at their watches at night Q And the wind thro' the trenches came stealing, Laughing and teasing and playfully sighing, They looked at each other as if replying, I, " 'Tis Timmie's message going to Erin."

GLADvs THOMAS AND GERTRUDE LYONS. 4.1.1- The History of the Allied Flags-the 4 American, English and French .ii- When the United States entered the great world war for democracy and freedom for all nations, from the menace of militarism, our country suddenly became aglow with the red, white and blue. Do we really know what the red, white and blue of our national Hag and of the national flags of our allies stand for? If we do not, We are not doing our national emblem justice in wearing it, for its beauty and the beauty of every flag lies in its meaning and significance. From time immemorial the nations of earth have borne ensigns and standards and these standards, by constant changing and revision, have gradually devel- oped into our present-day flags among which we find the Stars and Stripes, the British union jack and the French tri-color. Let us see if we can sketch a short history of each. The story of the Stars and Stripes is the story of the American nation itself, its development signifies the amazing expansion of our country and its resources: its evolution is symbolic of the growth of our free institutions. Up until 1777 the colonies in America had had many and varied ensigns, but no national flag had been designed. The date of the birth of our present flag was June 14, 1777, and the Continental Congress proclaimed its creation in a resolution which ran as follows: "Resolved, that the flag of the thirteen United States be- thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation." Many theories have been advanced as to the origin of the flag, some holding to the one that the Stripes were borrowed from the ensign raised by john Paul Jones on the "Alfred" in 1775, and the Stars from the colonial banner of Rhode Island. Others say that the design came from the flag of the Netherlands, and to support their theory they give the statements of Benjamin Franklin and John Adams, who, after going to the Netherlands and borrowing money, told the peo- 75 .Vs-aa-,vw qw-:rw-' ple of that country that we had borrowed much from their country, including the design for our flag. The colors of our fiag, the red, white and blue, are colors which have always been of significance. The red stands for courage, zeal and fervencyg the white, for purity and cleanliness of life and conduct, blue is for truth, loyalty, devotion, friendship and justice. The star signifies dominion and sovereignty and was a part of the old Persian and Arabian flags. What more of this world's beauty and truth could be sheltered in the folds of any flag? The national fiag of England, or rather of the British Empire, has not had so extensive a history as the American, but it is equally as interesting. At present it is the combination of the crosses of St. George, St. Andrew and St. Patrick. At the time when England, Scotland and Ireland united, a Hag was designed with the cross of St. George above and that of St. Andrew below. This arrangement immediately became the cause for dispute to the Scots because the upper portion of the flag is considered more honorable than the lower, and to them it meant that England had been placed first. The matter was appealed to the king, but he had no power to settle the matter, as the art of heralding itself was unable to do so. Two devices of equal value could not be made on one flag so they thought. For a while it remained as it had been, but upon the death of Charles I the union of the two countries was dissolved and each resumed its old flag. When they were united again under Cromwell, the flag question again came up, and finally the plan was devised of combining the two crosses, making both equal. One could not be placed on top or above the other, as the lower one would have been obliterated, and neither could they be arranged similar to the former design, and the matter reached a crisis. It was thereupon decided to broaden the white on one side of the red and to place the crosses diagonally in the flag. In this manner the three crosses were combined successfully, although the continuity of St. Patrickls cross was broken slightly. Nevertheless, the plan was adopted. St. George. St. Patrick and St. Andrew were the patron saints of England, Ire- land and Scotland, and it was as a memorial to them that their crosses were placed on the national Hag of Great Britain. Last, but not least, of the three allied flags, is the French tri-colorua flag of simple design. On it are the three equal spaces of red, white and blue, the blue being placed first or next to the flag staff. Several theories have been handed down in history as to the derivation of its combination, but even the best is vague and doubtful. The most authentic theory is that upon the capture of the Bastille, the commander-in-chief, Lafayette, devised a new cockade of the white of the royal family, the red and the blue, the old customary colors of France. This cock- ade, as most historians believe. developed into the present French Hag. Another theory linked with the French flag is that its colors were derived from the former national flags of France-the blue of the Chape de Martin, the red of the ori- Hamme and the white of the Bourbons. The legend of the Chape de Martin is that it was the cloak of St. Martin, which he divided with a beggar at Amiens, and a vision followed of Christ, making known to the angels this benevolent deed. For a while the Monks at Marmoutier held it and later both Clovis and Char- lemagne bore it in battle. Gradually, however, the red or scarlet banner, known as the oriflamme, took its place as the national emblem. It, in turn, was suc- ceeded by the white flag of the French I-Iuguenots. These are the sources from which the colors are said to have originated. The last theory is that the national Hag was taken from the shield of the Orleans family, the fleur de lis having 76 ' fr . .,.,,', , been struck off by Philippe Egalite. During Napoleon's reign he powdered it richly with the golden bees of his family, but they did not remain there lopg. The simplicity of this tri-colored flag is the striking feature of its effectiveness, and the trials of France stand half disclosed in its folds. Since we are beginning to realize the many meanings and the great signifi- cance of our Hags, they are becoming objects of reverence and love to us just as formerly they were to our forefathers. Several points of Hag etiquette might be added here that all who now have or wear them patriotically should note. In raising or lowering a Hag it should never be allowed to touch the ground. When it passes on parade or is being raised or lowered, all spectators should stand at attention and with heads bared. Never should a Hag be used for drapery, al- though frequently it is thus disregarded. A common practice is to drape it over the speaker's table at a meeting and to place articles on top of it. Nothing should ever be placed on top of a Hag unless it is the Bible. When a Hag becomes old, worn and faded, it should be reverently burned, as washing it and using it for any other purpose shows disrespect. The conclusion, now, which is most appro- priate perhaps, is found in the beautiful words of Henry Ward Beecher: "A thoughtful mind, when it sees a nation's Hag, sees not the Hag, but the nation it- self. And whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag the government, the principles, the truths, the history, that belong to the nation that sets it forth."
