The Gleam made its first appearance in 1013 and has continued every year since then. It has widened its scope, just as the school it represents has. from a small volume of 91 pages to the comprehensive volume of 1921. As a high school annual it embodies a full and impartial record of every phase of high school activity. Every aspect of undergraduate existence has its allotted place, in the records of class, literary. and athletic organizations. The purpose of the first “Gleam" was not only to serve as a memory book for the Seniors; but to express the highest ideals of the school as a whole, which have been a rich bequest of earlier years. To our friends we wish to say that we have tried to bind herein as many memories and as much of the spirit of the school in 1921 as possible. We ask that you accept it as one year of the life of Knsley High School reduced to pictures and words.I To ELMER EVERETT SMITH Principal of Enslev High School, in recognition of his part in the growth and development of Ensley High School.Daisy stach .L.

Friends and Students: W e. the class of 1921. greet you and welcome you to our class day exercises. It is needless for me to say that today is our day; the day for which we have striven long and hard, the day to which we have looked forward during the four years of our high school life. ves. and even of our whole school life as being the goal of our efforts and the fulfillment of our first real ambition in life. It is the day we shall never forget for it will ever rank first in the dear memories of our lives, even the very least details will always be remembered by each one of us. To our beloved parents we owe a lifelong debt of gratitude; for they have been the greatest factor in making possible the successful completion of this era of our lives. It has been only through their moral and financial support, their loving admonitions to avoid the wrong and eschew the right, their faithful encouragement to ever struggle onward, and their untiring patience with each shortcoming, that we have been inspired to strive onward and fulfill the dearest wish of their hearts as well as our own. Our teachers have been the next great factor in our lives, and I wish to express for myself and the whole class our heartfelt appreciation of all their efforts in our behalf. Patiently and earnestly have they worked to instill in our n inds not only the knowledge necessary for us to reach our goal, but also to mould our characters so that we might become useful citizens. Their ever-ready help, encouragement and steadying hand have helped to check our youthful impulses; and even though at the time, the aid was not duly appreciated. I take this opportunity to ask that theyforget our willfulness, unlearned lessons and disregard of school duties: and accept our heartiest thanks and appreciation; also to ask that they keep only kind thoughts of the Class of ’21. The third great factor in our lives thus far has been our friends, for as one writer has said, “they were given by God in nterev and in love, to be our counsellors, comforters, and guides; our joy in grief, our second bliss in joy. companions of our young desires; in doubt our oracles and our wings in high pursuit.” As we go forth we shall make new friends, but none can ever be more true or loyal than those we have known in Enslcy High School. Forever. shall the memory of our friends, from whom we are about to depart, be engraved as upon tablets of bronze, upon our hearts. While we have attended this school we have learned much from our text-books, yet that is a comparatively small detail to the infinitely greater things than knowledge, which we have acquired and strengthened. I speak of our individual characters, which have been moulded during our sojourn here, and which will always remain very much as they have now been formed. We can realize the importance of the formation of the highest type of character when we recall the words of Emerson: “Character is higher than the intellect, a great soul will be strong to live as well as to think.” It is indeed true that a “great character survives the man who possessed it. his age. and perhaps even his country and his language”: hence the vast importance of many of the lessons in honesty and integrity, which at the time seemed so unessential. However, our teachers did realize their importance. also that “true human improvement must be from within."Henry Ward Beecher said that “many men build as cathedrals were built, the part nearest the ground finished, but that part which soars toward heaven, turrets and spires forever incomplete.” W e have each laid the foundation of our characters and may we continue the building throughout our lives and at the end not resemble the old cathedrals. To accomplish the finished superstructure, we must constantly bear in mind that untiring effort is necessary for “every one is the son of his own works.” ¥ » We not only owe it to ourselves to have the highest possible ideals so as to form the best type of character, but we owe it to our parents, our friends, and last, but not least, to our country. Our nation's greatness is dependent upon the greatness of the individuals who compose it. and each true American is proud of the fact that this is the greatest country in the entire world. We love to boast of our success, growth in influence, and power; so let us see then that we arc boasters, who make good our boast, and let each through his own character add to the character of his country, always remembering that “Not in the clamor of the crowded street. • Not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng. But in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.” Fellow classmates, upon me has fallen the sad task and privilege of saying the parting words. No person, not in my position, can appreciate the sadness 1 feel at this parting. We have been together four long years sharing our work and our play, but today we separate never to assemble again in our classrooms and auditorium. We have each filled a niche, either large or small, in this dear old school, which in the future will be filled by another; and should we ever return it will be only as visitors. The parting is the saddest phase of this otherwise joyous occasion, and as we separate to begin new pursuits to lead to higher and richer lives we shall have only a memory of this chapter of our life’s history. Since 1 niust say the parting words, then “Farewell! a word that must be, and hath been— A sound that makes us linger: yet—farewell.” —ELDRIDGE MEANS. 34SENIOR POEM Yes. we are at last Seniors, Seniors in E. H. S. you know: And. are we really proud of it? Well! I should say so. For. think what we have overcome In the short time that we’ve been here! Why, it almost makes us think That we have nothing else to fear. For we have overcome Latin, Also Science, English and Math., But, we may have to fight them again So, it isn’t quite time to laugh. And here we have made many friends. Friends who are always staunch and true, Who don't mind a little work, If it means anything to you. Also, good times we have had. And, generally from day to day, Midst our numerous toils and our cares We have always found time for play. But do not gain the impression That we did nothing else but play; For. we studied our lessons hard. And gained knowledge from day to day. We all tried our best to surpass In all that we undertook; Did we do it? I’ll say we did; So. when searching for a star pupil, look! Behold the class of ’21, For a smart, jolly bunch are we; And not a better looking bunch Can you ever hope to see. Again look at the Senior Class, You sec a class that as a whole Will do its dead level best To attain the highest goal. And when we have tried so hard Surely we shall not fail: And may our uncertain life’s ship On a golden sea forever sail. —Douglas McLaren. 35Senior Class History BOUT four years ago we were located in the four corners of the world; that is, we were about to be graduated to Ensley High School from grammar schools in the various parts of the city— more especially to be mentioned: Ensley, W’ylam. Fairview. and Pratt City. So the great day came, September 17. li 17. and we entered upon our course of study in high school. We all felt our importance in becoming freshmen in the high school, but as there seemed to be so many students who thought they owned the school our importance soon faded into insignificance and we began to realize that we were only “rats and those very important folks were “Seniors’ —seniors who seemed to carry .the sign: “privileged characters.” As time wore on. we often thought of the day when we should become such great men and women as these seniors. But sometimes that day seemed something like the end of the rainbow—a thing that could not be reached. Especially did it seem so when some topic stood in the way and the teacher of that subject seemed not to know how to write anything above “GO.” The freshman and sophomore years soon passed away and we began to take life more seriously. W e began to get into the work of the different organizations of the school. Most of us became members of literary societies. Some who had talent along certain lines found their way into the Lyric Club, ('.lee Club, Spanish Club, Commercial Club, or the Dramatic Club. From this last club members were selected to act in plays given in the school during our career here. From the literary societies there came the fortunate ones who had won in the preliminaries, and who represented their societies in the semiannual debates, always a big event in each semester. It is an interesting fact that the last semi-annual debate seemed like a senior class affair, as each one participating was a Senior. By no means least, has been our athletic activities. Other athletic teams of the state began feeling the powerful football machine that was being developed in Ensley High School. W ith the season all against us during our freshman year, you may know that we felt great the coming year when, after many years of defeat at the hands of our old rival, we finally defeated Central. At the end of 1010 Ensley was a runner-up with Central and Bessemer as contenders for state championship. After defeating Central, in itself a goal worth while, we finally lost to Bessemer for the state leadership. In 1020. we had Mr. Jack Hovater. a former famous University of Alabama player, as coach. W ith him were such men as Gandy. Whitehead. Peck. McLaren and Smith from out of the Senior class. Mr. Hovater developed this aggregation into one of the most powerful and skillful teams in the state. Up to the last game of the season our goal line had not been crossed and we were again contenders for the championship title of the state. This time we suffered our only defeat in one of the hardest fought games of the season. These four years of our life have not only shown a change in our classmates. but also in the external life of the school as well. Our school has grown in four brief years from an enrollment of less than five hundred students to a bulging, bustling mass of high school students, numbering more than one thousand. As we have grown in numbers, so have we grown in other ways. 3GWe have seen band instruments bought, and a high school band developed. Many of us. as freshmen, had part in getting the band to going. While freshmen, we heard something of a Vocational School, and during our first year witnessed the beginning of the Vocational School at Knsley High, with classes in drafting and patternmaking. We have seen the beginning and the wonderful growth of military training in the school. And now in our senior year we witness the R. O. T. C. man, with uniform and equipment, doing credit to his school and his country. Music has had its part in our high school life, and we have had part in getting for our school the pipe organ that has pleased and entertained us during our time here. A library and library service have become parts of the school, an equipment that has proven a boon to every member of this class. For our senior year there has been placed for our school a modern machine shop, as part of the Vocational and Manual Training Department. This gives to us one of the best equipped mechanical departments in the entire South. And. then, we have our picture machine. This is a distinct addition to the equipment of the school, and offers to students here great opportunities for entertainment and instruction. To the Juniors we offer the job of getting for this grand old school a fine athletic field on Knsley Park, an up-to-date gymnasium where every boy and girl may have adequate physical training, and room enough for every student at least a desk for the coming years. And now we have arrived at our goal—Seniors, about to be graduated from school. But. oh! how little we feel. We know that we arc about to go out of a life of great happiness into a world of great uncertainty. As the last days of our high school life approach, we feel as if we were one of a big family about to be separated from the rest. However, the remembrance of our classmates and friends, with the various incidents that have happened, will never be forgotten, and, after all, these memories will be a better history of the Senior Class than any that could have been written. —FRAZIER LACEY. 37Statistics of Senior Class "-“ RIEXDS, Classmates and Visitors: I come to portray this class, I-|— 1 not to praise it. for the good that students do lives after them. 1—« I This ambiguous document contains the superfluous statistics i 1 j of said class, due to be graduated on the 2nd day. 6th month, one ■■— — thousand nine hundred and twenty-first year of our Lord. The same has been inspected, approved and guaranteed to be absolutely pure and unadulterated under the Pure Food and Drug Act. As Xero insinuated, this is a class that keepeth old men in the chimney corner, rats in the cellar, and maketh English teachers to go to the asylum and fond parents to go down in their pockets or drive stage coaches into Paradise and laundry wagons into bankruptcy. One hundred super animals compose the class, the versatility of which is refreshing, since there are two girls for each boy. Being smaller in number, the boys have had their hands full in keeping up with tjie girls and some of the girls have had their minds full in trying to keep up with the thirty-one boys. Among the girls we find one modern housewife, a pair of school teachers, three politicians, four trained nurses, seven bachelor girls, twenty-two stenographers, fourteen musicians, two painters and a poet. Those remaining are undecided whether to become movie stars, run away, remain single, teach school, elope, learn to fly, accept a position or buy more furs for July and August. After seven of the boys declared their intentions of becoming medical doctors, about half the remaining class began preparing to be undertakers, feeling certain that business would pick up. The other half is patiently waiting to become the patients. Still another is preparing for Journalism, another is studying painless extraction of the purse under the cover of Dentistry, two others will become drummers—we hope their home life will be pleasant— all the others intend to become peaceful citizens and live on their income tax returns. It is enough to say that every member is a Sunday school boy or girl; that is. they primp on Sunday for school on Monday. If it could be possible to blend the natural colors and shades of the pupils’ heads, which range from Turkey red to palmolive, royal purple, black, blonde and auburn—that is. when free from hair dye, lemon juice, peroxide and home mixtures—the resulting compound, complex, complicated, compositional color which would be produced would make the “Xavy Blue” yes almost sea sick. The total number of hairs we once possessed minus those we now cherish will give exactly the number of false hairs the class now wears, or a total of four hundred and twenty-seven dollars worth of wigs. For ever hour spent in worry over examinations there is a grey hair. Have you noticed how many of us are grey or light headed? Our eyes, like marbles, are of all kinds: good eyes, blue eyes, flashing eyes, white eyes, sharp eyes, green eyes, pointed eyes, brown eyes, almond eyes, bad eyes, vampish eves, and big eyes. W hen the sights are all linked together we could stand on a Xew York skyscraper and view the canals on Mars. Counting two lips to one person, two persons to one stick, two sticks to one week, figures show that Kress has profited six hundred forty dollars and nine cents on lip sticks sold to this class, or enough to paint Brooklyn Bridge twice. I found by attaching a speedometer to everybody’s tongue that the number of words spoken per minute arc as numberless as the movements of Frank- 38Powell per second in the third period Latin class. By moulding all our mouths into a cave there would be a sufficient capacity to consume at one time seventeen sacks of flour, one whole candy shop, a billion high-school lunches, two barrels of apples and to drink a pool room dry. Then after such a light lunch smoke a telephone pole for a cigarette. If each of us could stand upon the shoulders of the other we would be tall enough to cat off of the roof of the Jefferson County Bank building and reserve Carroll Gardner and Margaret Matthiews for flag poles. However, our combined width was more difficult to obtain, but after several seconds of deep figuring and extended articulation 1 arrived at the startling conclusion that although some people are narrow, the class would reach all the way around the school building with Mr. Smith to form the connecting link: or to be specific, the breadth of this class in linear measure is similar to a curved line which has length without reach, and obtuse thickness without depth. Another thing that we boast of is our weight, physical not mental. The total avoirdupois is about four and one-half tons, which if measured in the present value of coal we would be worth a few dollars at least. In every day language, the amount of energy expended by this class in rising to a standing position is equal to the horsepower of a Ford. Next in order comes our ages, the most impossible difficulty I ever encountered outside of studying. Our age would make Methuselah seem almost an infant and dated back would make us contemporaries of Charlemagne. I also learned that Thos. R. Walker and Mary X el son are the class infants, but I shall not tell you how many birthdays they have seen. 'I'he total number of hours spent in high school when reversed, turned up-side-down and subtracted from the class age. will give the number of hours spent in study. Xo wonder some pupils show rosy cheeks which either indicate the resistance of pale midnight oil, or bear evidence of the camouflage device. The reason this class is so scintillating is because it contains the historical names of Ezell. McElhennev, Kenda. Riordan, Gafnea. Renfro and Killgore: then we have the rare and most unfamiliar names of “Smith" and “Johnson." Should all of our now discarded books be collected and cast into Warrior River there would be a tidal wave front Cuba (Alabama) to Rome (Georgia). If we could recover all our broken pencil points they might be moulded into a bullet and left as a class monument, or if we might collect all the powder puffs, members of our class have used since they came to Ensley High School, we could pad all the seats in the school auditorium, or if we had all the chewing gum. which our heartless teachers have made us throw away, we could corner the market: or if we had all the money we have wasted we could build a school equipped with more fun and less work. Our Junior friends tell you that we were ambitious. If it were so it was a grievous fault and grievously have we answered for it. but how could we help being ambitious when we have Means enough for anything, and are well protected by a young Cannon, elevated by a Derrick, guided by the famous chapters of Matthiews. fed on Kellogg's brain food, and have a Beach of our own at which to snend our Summers. A little W ood has nobly kept the home fires burning, cheering the hearts of some two White people. With our Smith, Gardner. Trucks and Fryer, we may go to Thomas and see the Gray Craig among the Cliffe's or Byrum if we only Walker way over the Miles. Although the class has Grace, it boasts of a Brownie and is ranked among the Dees as it has never crossed the Dixon line due to one Lacey boy. The Coleman and Millar have been accommodating, but we are depending on our Harding to lead us through the Gay Webb with Merritt. Now you mav watch Dean Peck since you have so patientlv listened to Raymond Crowe. —RAYMOXD CROWE. 39Honor Honor has always been a quality which has predominated in the hearts and lives of many, but has been found lacking in the lives of others. Without honor we could not be of service to our country; we could not be of use to civilization: nor could we serve our God. In life we see the two types of civilization as they traverse their many and various paths of occupation. To one we attribute all that tends to upbuild and promote the world’s best interest: to the other we may attribute that which tends to destroy what others have accomplished. Degree or station does not always denote honor : for many who have attained prominence in the eyes of the world have attained it through dishonorable methods. There are two kinds of honor, the seeming honor and the true honor. To the observer, both are apparent in every day life. We come into personal contact with both; we enjoy the company of the one, and distrust the action of the other. Many possess that type of honor which is reflected only upon the surface of their characters. They are careful to endeavor to accomplish meritorious deeds only so long as they are conspicuous in the eyes of the multitude. When the mantle of deceit is lifted from their shoulders and their true worth is laid bare, they are found wanting. The true ladies and true gentlemen of our land are those who are full of honor. In the pages of history we. in most instances, find the names of men who have been placed there because of some honorable deed, service or trait. When we speak the names of Washington, Lee, Jackson. Lincoln and Wilson, we glory in their honorable, upright characters. These men occupy a place dear to the hearts of all loyal Americans. Their greatness towers above the multitude because of their honor. So it is with all men of like character. A man. who. at one time, commanded the respect and love of all. by one dishonorable act sacrificed his opportunities and won for himself the derision and scorn of all. When Benedict Arnold's true colors were at last thrown to the breeze his name became a curse. Honor, in the true sense of the word, has always existed and still exists in all parts of the world. It has been known from time immemorial. Men have fought for it. bled for it and died for it. Kingdoms have been overthrown for it: nations have warred for it: empires have been abolished for the sake of preserving it. Honor is the builder of civilization and progress. The greatest war the world has ever known, a war in which our own great country participated, was fought for the honor of principles. A conflict which has cost us millions of dollars and thousands of precious lives: one which has seriously endangered the welfare of the world and has plunged civilization into the most damaging of conditions was fought for the honor of ideals. •10As is ever true, those ideals which were full of honor were brought triumphantly through the fray l»v the loyal sons of our glorious stars and stripes. In the mad money making scramble of today many lose sight of the real goal and abandon all honor and disregard all scruples in their anxiety to acquire wealth. Humanity is not deemed worthy of consideration: egotism predominates in many. Friends, your honor is the most sacred thing which you possess. If your ambitions are budded upon an honorable foundation you have proved yourself an asset to your home, your church and your country. You deserve the homage of all. If you desire that your name be remembered with respect and pleasure, after your work on this earth has been completed; and if you wish to inherit the Kingdom of God, you can do so only through an honorable and straight-forward career. There are those present, who merit the just praise of all. because of their deep sense of honor. Friends, guard, keep and preserve your honor as sacred. It is something to be cherished and guarded: something which cannot be bought or sold, but it belongs only to those of the highest moral courage. It requires years to attain the name of one, who is full of honor, goodness and righteousness, but it may be lost in the course of seconds. He honorable in your own eyes as well as in the eyes of the world and to you will belong the respect and admiration of all people. —MILES VEXTRESS. IIProphecy OT so long ago I read this sentence in a book on mythology, “ I he advice and prophecies of the ancients came primarily from the Oracles. The prophets acted only as interpreters of their mutter-ings and dogmas.” Then I had an inspiration. It must have been a divine one! Certainly. I was a prophet. I had been so named bv one of the greatest organizations in the United States, the Class of Enslcy High School of ’21. Just as the people of old went to the medicine man, that he. with uplifted hands, might bless them, so the Seniors ha.ve chosen me their herald to foretell the future before they start on the long journey of a new and different life. Since, a gift of honor had indeed been laid upon me, all I lacked was the assistance of an Oracle. Why not get this peep into the future through mental telepathy? Swifter than the flight of an arrow, I sent my thought messengers across the waves of ether. With unerring accuracy they traveled to Pythias, the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi; and at last her answer came, faint and intermittent. First, she complained that her tripod had been destroyed and she herself forced to dwell beneath the fissure of old Parnassus, but her secret power was the same and she declared that my faith should be rewarded. She told me where to find a magic crystal, which she had recently begun to use, and sent me her sacred words of enchantment, the spell by which the Future can be brought into the Present. Ah! I see on the banks of the River Nile a summer home surrounded by luxuriant palms. A barge of slender lines and draped as of old with fine silks, lies at rest near the steps; and within, a woman reclines at langor-ous ease, her black hair braided and held by a filet of pearls. It is one we knew as Carolyn Henshaw, but now she is the wife of a rich old mayor. Presently a boatman appears and rows the barge down stream to a landing, at which three women dressed in traveling clothes come forth and descend into the barge, where they are gladly welcomed. They used to be Ruby Arnold, Mary Donehoo and Tessie Derrick. They have left their husbands in Birmingham to send them the checks to meet the expense of their visit to Egypt. It is night and on the portico of one of the oriental houses a table is set: a guest is evidently expected. He is announced, Mr. Marvin Sams, the well known archaeologist, who seems much too excited to eat and tells at length of his recent discoveries in the depths of the ancient pyramids. My vision fails me when Mr. Richard Burton enters, bringing a copy of the New York News. I readily discover the reason for his smiles, when I glance at the editor’s name. Charles Hassler. Under the society column I note these items: “They say that Dean Peck, formerly of Ensley. ties his Ford in front of Miss Grace Bowen’s house every night in the week." “If Mr. Cannon doesn't leave a certain blue-eyed girl alone, there will be an elopement." Farther down I saw these advertisements: “WANTED—A high salaried position by a teacher of History. See Miss Elizabeth Riordan." “WANTED—A position by a fine seamstress. Miss Edith Dees." 42The scene changes to regions farther south. I sec many familiar faces in a dense jungle. That is indeed strange—but wait! This is the Pre-historic Film Co., composed wholly of feminine graduates of 21. There is Nell Fryer, directress; Catherine Evans, who plays the funny parts; Weister Champion, heavy man. and Minnie Thompson, who loves the tragic parts. Others of this remarkable cast are Eva Hancock, playing the role of a flirt: Lena Kaufman, excellent as a giggling school girl; Zelma Johnson acting in capacity of critic to the cast, and Roy Fecny. who is the author of many of the photoplays produced by this company. The name of Frank Powell flashes through the ethereal spirit world, and like a thunderclap 1 see that he has become a great impersonate his specialty being high school teachers. My vision is transformed and I find myself very confident of the success of Miss Marion Millar, for everyone knows that modesty is the most charming of all virtues and must win in the end. As 1 sit wondering what foreign picture I will glance upon next, my thoughts carry me back to Lowell Cooper. Reports from my Oracle state that there is in store for him fame as a salesman, provided he limits his activities to the belt business. Pictures again fade—I sec an African village with its thatched roofs. A mob of cannibals is following some one about—to kill him? No, they seem very fond of him. Why, it is John Ilanchcy, who is selling green spectacles and nail files to the natives. He winks slyly at me and after observing his sales I see that financially he is thriving. The continent of Africa is gone like a mist and next appears a steamer on a rolling sea. Two men leaning against the rail arc Frazier Lacey and Robert l‘»vrum. Prosperous looking they are. and well they may be, for they are sole owners of the “Power Steamship and Excursion Co." Near by is Virginia Summers, who is talking to a bachelor about her native land. Rozzie Gafnea is also enroute to London to tell the women of that city why Woman Suffrage is such a phenomenal success in the United States. In the midst of a large crowd I see Carroll Gardner, who is “Master of Ceremonies" and receives a fabulous sum for providing amusement for the passengers. Miss Mary Bunn Gay entertains them with her excellent readings. Miss Gertrude Dixon and Julian Keller charm them with their violin solos and Miss Kirt-land treats them to the music of her voice. My attention is drawn from the pleasant group on deck to the side of the vessel where a large poster states that Air. Earl Smith has retired from the business world in order to devote his philanthropic efforts to the improvement of the Pratt-Ensley street car service, lie has installed on this line noiseless cars with Pullman accommodations, running every one and one-sixth minutes. In recognition of Mr. Smith's public-spirited reforms, the students of Ensley High School unanimously agreed to name a variety of cakes formerly called “chokers" after him. Now I behold a French academy. A great crowd is assembled in the auditorium. Near the front are Corrie Jarrell. Josephine Spence, Emily Russell. Margaret Robson. Anna Kenda and Kathryn Craig. During the time they have been teaching French, they have become so interested that they are spending a year studying the people and customs at first hand. Up in the balcony, pencil and tablet in hand are Nora Fayet and Lila Belle Gray, foreign correspondents of the Alumnal Department of the E. H. S. “Gleam." There is a sudden hush. A young woman comes forward to receive an hon- •13orary degree from the Academy for the impetus she has given Science by her research work in chemistry. She is Ollic Merritt. E. H. S. ’21. But what is this? Louise Edwards, who was always known to do original things, has broken away from the ordinary. 1 find her the mistress of what seems to be a charming chateau, but which is in reality the gratification of many a mother's wish—a finishing school for American girls on the outskirts of Paris. Notable among her faculty are the following: Mam’selle White, Professor of the Gentle Art of Teaching; Mam’selle Wood, who lectures on the “Correct in Dress”: Louise Leach, dancing master; Nellie Malone. the Madame Etiquette of the School; Helen Bowen, the adored Voice teacher: Hope Kellogg, the Commercial teacher. In the twinkle of an eye I pass by a theatrical house displaying some attractive signs. At the entrance I immediately discover a small note reading, "Introduction of Mr. Joseph May from Filmdom, a great comedian, playing roles very true to life. Picture now showing, .‘The Downs of a Rat is said to have been filmed from personal experience." As I turn to pass down the lobby I notice the added attraction. Special music features by “Weary Members of the Wide World Orchestra. Baxley, cornetist: Killgore, clarinetist: Geo. Mandy, drums; Lula Sam Browne, cornetist: Eldridge Huffman. pianist. In the twinkling of an eye 1 am transferred to the United States Senate. There I see Miles Ventress, who is trying, with much pounding on his desk, to convince the Senators that a pound ought to weigh Mi ounces, because it did when his grandfather was a boy; while Charles Wier is stubbornly holding out that custom has made it equal only 12 ounces. The Honorable Win. White. Speaker, is rapping for order so that the distinguished Senator, Frances Thomas, may finish her speech. Now I see a busy thoroughfare in the same city. Approaching are two learned-looking men, whose faces appear very familiar. As I walk very slowly down the street I overhear their conversation. I readily discover them as our famous football players. John Gandy and Hulan Whitehead. Whitehead, as Coach of Football at the University of Wisconsin, is engaging Gandy as his assistant. A sudden light reveals the public square of a thriving western village, thronged with people. It is election night and a cheer bursts from the people, as upon an electric sign, high in the air, flashes "Miss Camille Reynolds, Mayor of Reinville.” Truly her name is writ upon the heavens! A little later I am coming through St. Louis. What is this magnificent building? “Palace of Rest.” Ah. let me inside! Marvelous! Miss Mary Meehl is head manager; assistants Aline Moog. Margaret McBride, Eulalie Tyson and Ottilie Johnson. The interior decoration and the harmony of the color combinations are the work of the famous artist known to us as our own Lola Moody. The Emporium fades like the dream that it really is. and the new scene is very different. I gaze upon what was once the slums of the city, but is now an immense apartment house built around an inner court of grass and flowers. The transformation is chiefly due to the efforts of Miss Katie Spurgeon. but now—Mrs. Somebody, chairman of the City Welfare Committee: though, to be sure, she was aided by Misses Pearl Arnold, Emerta Elliott and Mary Nelson, well known settlement workers, and made possible by the financial support of such business men as Clarence Hancock. Hubert Vaughan and Wm. Rogers. 44A sudden rush indeed—I am in Birmingham again. It is not, of course, as we left it years ago, but is still quite familiar looking. High up in his skyscraper office is Thomas R. Walker, “friend and lawyer of the people,” and renowned as being very sympathetic and helpful to young students on debates. The outer door opens and two men enter for a social chat. The first is "Doug" McLaren, successful comedian, particularly noted for his impersonations. The other is Oscar Applebaum, prominent club man. who, it is said, always carries a tiny book of his beloved Latin in his vest pocket. Again the door opens and Mr. Shelton appears. He owns an outdoor theatre, wonderfully suited for plays that require woodland scenes. Just now he seems very pleased and laying his next program on Coleman's desk points to several names. "Miss Eloise Sanders, who is playing the role of a vamp"; "Miss Katherine Thompson, one of the most gifted readers on the lyceum platform, a real artist"; "Mr. Paul Austin, concert master of the Eastern Symphony Orchestra, who plays in Birmingham by special request." As these pictures fade I find myself looking on a street scene. In the far side is an immense building upon the corner of which is carved, "McCall and Renfro, Lawyers." Further on is a new hospital where Dr. Crowe, an expert surgeon, has his offices. Wait! Two girls are approaching. They arc Elsie Landers. "The Wizard Swimmer for the Mighty Y. YY. C. A.." and Margaret Blanton, of the New Birmingham View Co. They are engrossed in details when they suddenly bump into another girl who carries a happy expression. and I hear one say. “Rosalie! What are you doin’ now, ’ole girl ?” “Who. me? Not a thing. I sold my brains for $10,000.00 to Madame Foster. Professor of Latin and Psychology at Nuts Town Academy, and then went to Europe to look through the ruins over there for the cause of that war they had some years back." A little "Air-O-Ship" drops lightly to the pavement and the Mrs.---------, whom we all knew as the little Nell of long ago. steps out. She has come to town from the little bungalow way out on the heights. Let me go on. In the next block is a very rustic building with a tiny green plot and red geraniums in front. Over the door is a sign. "Miss Grace Gossett. Professional Questions and Answers to All School Children." The scene changes and as I turn to go. I happen to glance at the group of stars called the Seven Sisters. They now bear the names of Trucks, Busby. Bradley. Ezell, Keetion, Reeves and Lindsey. Under the names was this prophecy: “Old age. prosperity, happiness and blessings in abundance will follow you through life." Then, alas! all is blank! I turn to my crystal again, just one more picture. Ah. it is many years later and 1 cannot see where, but in the soft glow of the light I see only an old gentleman with snowy hair reading the “Means Post." He wears a 1921 class ring and I recognize him as our president. Eldridge Means. Alas!—My power is gone—I can tell no more. Oh. Pythias! what, is there not yet another vision? No. 'tis but an illusion, a white sail disappearing over the horizon of the blue expanse of waters. I can see and tell no more—no more. 15 —MA RGAR FT M ATT 111 FAN'S.Weighed and Not Found Wanting HEX man first sprang from the plastic hand of his Creator, in the image of Him who said. "Let there be light, and there was light, he was a perfect being. However. God seeing it was not good for him to be alone, that he needed a companion, caused a deep sleep to come over man, and God took XOT from the man’s head, lest she rule over him, neither from his foot, that he should lord it over her. hut a RIB from his side, showing she was HIS EQUAL, and so was created a beauteous woman, the last and XOBLEST work of God. He placed them in the beautiful Garden, where all was perfect joy. All nature was in her primeval freshness, the air was laden with the perfume of sweet flowers and the delicious odor of luscious fruits. The melody of the wooded songsters burst forth in a soul enchanting strain, the star bedecked Heavens, too, sent forth their praise, the sun and moon vied with each other in their brilliancy, all in one accord chanting praises to God. In the blue dome above them. God’s balances, guarded and watched by Angels, were hung, for God had said to the man and woman: "If you do this, you shall die.” Xeverthcless. in an evil hour the tempter came and through his cunning, attractive, wily ways, and his appeal to their vanity, they yielded to their first temptation. As a punishment they were driven from the Garden of Eden, after which the ground was commanded to bring forth thorns and thistles, and they by the sweat of their brow were commanded to earn their bread. Then they exchanged luxury, beauty and ease for a companionship with the homely, useful grubbing hoe. Were they found wanting? But this world, aglow with its brilliant foliage, buds, flowers and brooks, was too beautiful to fade, "though the trail of the serpent is over them all.” Thus it was with that people called the chosen of God. His own peculiar people were not exempt, although they were the first to enjoy the privileges of freedom, they lost forever the most precious boon ever bestowed on man. Years rolled by and the once proud nation had been humbled. The Romans, being more powerful, subjugated the Jews; thus was the sweet morsel, which they were devouring, taken away from them, 'ere their craving appetites were satisfied. Xow we will let our minds wander to the seagirt isle of Corsica . In a small town, Ajacio, was born a man-child. As he lay in his humble cradle, dimpled and smiling, as the blue Mediterranean sang soothing lullabies to his innocent sleep and the waves lashed softly over the rock-crested shore, as if in fear of breaking his slumber, none would have ever dreamed of the part he was to play in the world’s destiny. The star that arose on the horizon of Corsica burst forth in metoric display in France, where he built a military empire on the ruins of the republic, of which he claimed to be the offspring, and struck the hereditary monarchies of all Europe almost a fatal blow. For whether in quelling the mob in Paris, or as First Consul, or at the Pass of Lodi, he was the same incomprehensible man, the incarnation of ambition, a worshipper at Ambition’s shrine. He would reign with his kindred alone. For the sake of a divorce, he ordered the arrest of the Pope of Rome and his imprisonment in France. He put away the pure and lovely wife of his youth, seeking to relegate her to the crematory of forgetfulness, while in accordance with the wish of his people, he made haste to marry a daughter of the proud House of Hapsburg. After which, his star of Destiny grew brighter and brighter, until it burst forth in the full grandeur of the noon-day sun at itszenith. He deluged Europe in tears and blood, devastated the country, made orphans, broken hearts, and ruined happy homes. The sad havoc of war was complete, but reverses were starting. “As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so is a man that wandereth from his place.” His glory was indeed short-lived, his star shone less bright and more dim and faint it grew. Then came his exile to Elba: but even then that restless spirit could not be content. his very life seemed to be eating itself away. Back he must go to his beloved France, but friends availed little, his star was setting, and he must meet his Waterloo. No, he was NOT conquered, but DESTINY was against him. and he was exiled to the scarred, frowning, rock-bound, storm-tossed isle of St. Helena. He, who had ruled all Europe, whose word had been law, only yester-year, was now a lonely exile. How that proud, ambitious spirit must have chaffed and fretted to be free, utterly alone as to friends, forsaken by them, his wife of the Hapsburgs banished from his sight! He. who had but to command and was obeyed, he. who could create kings and princes at his word. he. who had caused the widow's moan and orphan’s cry to ascend to the throne of God for help, soon lay dying. Watch the quick, fluttering breath, the icy touch of his hands, the death damp on his pallid brow, and listen. oh listen, to his LAST words. “Head of the army." The raging storm, great peals of clashing thunder amid the lightning's flaming lurid flashes, the wind’s dismal howl, the mournful waves of the Atlantic as they lashed the frowning rock-bound isle, the sea-bird’s plaintive note were but a fit requiem for the one-time world conqueror, as he passed into eternity. Glance along the history of time when our own Republic began to write its unrivaled splendor far above the other nations of the world, until a freeman's pride was aroused. How the heart thrills with pleasurable emotions, for it feels that while other nations have done well, this one has excelled them all. and ’tis true, for no other can boast of a longer list of patriots, a brighter fame, and a more extended territory—than that possessed by the United States of America. Within our Congressional Halls have assembled the heroes, sages, statesmen (their voices long since gone), who with their spirits have rendered sacred the name and the place where they stood and pleaded for Freedom, on Freedom's holy land. But in the distance there came a rumbling—a rumbling of discontent, war clouds began to darken our horizon, the tocsin of war was to sound when brother would be arrayed against brother. father against son. all in one mighty chaos. Anarchy became rampant, there was blood-shed, disunion, our country was rent with dissensions, torn and bleeding at every pore. W e pause aghast, and ask what was the cause of all this? The answer—the NEGRO. My good mother would voice her disapproval, quite plainly, if I quarreled about a negro, but NOT so with our wise, brainy statesmen and politicians. Our country must be torn asunder, the flower of our land slain, the widow’s moan, the orphan’s cry wafted to I Iim who hearcth 11 is people: and where formerly the sweet hum of the wheels of industry was heard, devastation and ruin held their carnage. Though we wish it were not so. yet we must check the rising murmur, for Inspiration has penned the words. “There is neither Greek nor Jew, bound or free, but all are one in Christ Jesus.” To whom shall we appeal, to whom turn in our hour of peril? Must we see nations and people crumbling and turning to dust as the destroyer stalks forth over the old and new world? During the happy childhood of our own class, we grasped the meaning of war. when old “Colonel Bill Kaiser,” as the humble Kentucky negro called him. for you know. Emperors, Czars, and Kings fade into insignificance compared with a "Colonel” in the eyes of a Kentucky pickaninny, lifted the lid off a seething roaring Hades. lie forgot to honor a “scrap of paper," and 47loosed his pack of gray hell-hounds of war on poor little helpless Belgium, convulsing all Europe and our own country with poignant sorrow and gloom to his own dishonor, disgrace and everlasting shame. Can a more fitting title be found for such a destroyer of men, property, free speech, homes, and chastitv of woman, than the “Emperor of Destruction ’? Again. 1 ask'to whom shall we turn? Is it all a tear, a smile, a shadow and a mockery? Are we ever to be found wanting? Is it always to be thus: It is not. for nineteen hundred years ago there appeared in the East a star, the brightest of all in the diadem of night; the “Star of Bethlehem.” sent to guide the wise men to the place where Jesus was born. The day now dawn-eth when He will make up His jewels and we. by kindly words and useful deeds, with no room for regrets or reproaches, will exchange the roses of health for the lilies of death, ever keeping in view the “Star of Bethlehem.” Methinks that when the angelic choir will cast their dazzling crowns at His feet, we shall be weighed and not found wanting. —ELIZABETH FOSTER.

Alice 60FIRST SEMESTERThe Vocational Department By R. F. Jarvis, Director The end oi the present school year marks the close of the fourth year of the vocational department in the Ensley High School. This department was first organized in September. 1 9 1 .in answer to an increasing and ever growing demand upon the part of industry that the school give an opportunity to its young men to prepare themselves for the skilled trades. The dominant purpose then, as well as now. was to prepare for useful employment in whatever course Knsley High School was prepared to offer. The first two courses to be given were drafting and pattern making, with Mr. I. R. Lester in charge of the former and Mr. R. R. Schmitz the latter. A considerable number of boys enrolled in each of these classes. The year 1918-1919 saw changes in teachers of both classes. Mr. Y. S. Bridges succeeded Mr. Lester, and Mr. J. A. Lipscomb took the place of Mr. Schmitz. The interest displayed in this work the previous year was sufficient for the Board of Education to feel that it was worth while to employ a director of vocational education, and Mr. |. O. Stcendahl was appointed to this position. The epidemic of influenza and the closing of the schools, as well as the resignation of Mr. Steendahl. tended to disorganize the work to a certain extent during the year. The demands of industry and high wages during the summer of 1919 called both the vocational teachers of the previous year from the school and their places were taken by Mr. A. 15. Dunning, draftsman, and Mr. Herman IMoeger. patternmaker. Some time elapsed after school had opened before these men were appointed and several of the students from the previous year re-entered the regular high school classes. Mr. R. F. Jarvis, the present director of Vocational Education, succeeded Mr. Stcendahl. Only a few of the original students were in the classes, and their places were taken by new boys. The work in both classes was reorganized and brought strictly up to 68Smith-Hughes standards. At the close of the year a number of students successfully completed the required course and were graduated from the department. Positions were found for these men at good wages with a number of the best known plants of the city. Reports from their employers later indicated that they were doing excellent work and coming up to expectations in every particular. The year of 1920-1921 has proven to be the banner year of the vocational department of the Enslcy High School. The original equipment of the school called for metal as well as wood working shops, but limited funds had prevented the installation of a machine shop up to this time. The United States government saw fit to put on the market, and to offer special inducements to vocational schools, the machine tools used in war work. These tools were in good condition and many of them had never been used. The Board of Education was fortunate in securing fourteen machines, which formed a nucleus for a machine shop. In addition a new Rockford shaper. Greenfield tool grinder. Buffalo upright drill, and two Buffalo forges were also purchased-An excellent tool room equipment supplemented the machine tools. The shop was equipped and machines installed during the summer and early fall of 1920. With the completion of this shop the Enslcy High School became the proud possessor of the best equipped school machine shop south of the Ohio River. The fact that there seemed to be but a limited demand for patternmaking and the possibility that funds, which had previously gone into this course could be better spent in machine shop practice led to the discontinuing of the former in favor of the latter as a vocational class in 1920. The number of students enrolling in this course justified the move. Mr. I. C. Frederick was appointed to take charge of this new shop, and to teach the best and most approved methods of machine shop practice. Due to unavoidable delays the shop was not ready for operation during the first month of school. The new class, who had come into the shop with the expectation of immediate work, displayed a remarkable spirit of co-operation bv assisting in the installation of tools and construction of equipment. Mr. J. J. O’Brien was appointed to succeed Mr. Dunning as teacher of drafting, and under his directions the equipment of the drafting room was changed to come nearer meeting actual drafting conditions. The old tables and small drawing boards were replaced with the same type of equipment as found in shop and commercial drafting rooms. With new equipment it became possible for students to work under shop conditions and do work that corresponded to that of the drafting room. In the rebuilding of drawing tables and boards Mr. O’Brien enjoyed the same spirit of co-operation that was found in the machine shop boys. A large part of the actual construction was done by members of the class. The increased interest in vocational education, as sho Vn by the increased enrollment, made it necessary that another teacher be added to the vocational department in 1920. Mr. Oliver Graves was given charge of the vocational session room and to teach English to both the draftsmen and machinists. Mr. Graves also taught Mathematics and Science to the machinists alone. The Ensley High School and the Vocational Department are t« be congratulated in having as students such a splendid body of young men. Throughout the entire year they have shown a most commendable spirit of harmony, co-operation, dependability and industry. They have always been ready to work for the good of the class and the school, and to build up the department of which they are members. The standards of workmanship and technique have been high, and it is safe to say that in future years some of the best mechanics and draftsmen in this city will have been members of the class of 1920-1921.

BUG, as amended by the acts of Congress of September 8. BUG, and July 9, 1918. The primary object of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps is to provide systematic military training at civil educational institutions as reserve officers in the military forces of the United States. It is intended to attain this object during the time that students are pursuing their general or professional studies with the least practicable interference with their civil careers, by employing methods designed to fit men physically, mentally, and morally for 73pursuits of peace as well as pursuits of war. It is believed that such military training will aid greatly in the development of better citizens. It should be the aim of educational institutions to maintain one or more units of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps in order that in time of national emergency there may be instantly available a large number of educated men, physically efficient and trained in the fundamentals of military science and tactics, and fitted to lead intelligently the units of the army upon which the safety of the country will depend. The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps will enrich the educational resources of schools and colleges by contributing new problems, applications, and equipment. 'This will not only vitalize the course of study, but give to the student a training which will be as valuable to him in his industrial or professional career as it would be should the nation call upon him to act as a leader in its defensive forces. Moreover, the wide variety of work recognized and accepted by the War Department as of intrinsic value for military purposes should leave on the mind of the student an indelible impression of the extent to which the modern army is the nation in arms. Commerce, industry, agriculture, and all the professions have each their contribution to make to the military organization. A military unit is largely dependent for its efficiency upon the physical fitness of the individuals composing it. Physical training, therefore, will form the essential part of the military instruction. It will be the policy to encourage and support the physical training given by civilian teachers, thus cooperating with all other effective agencies in an effort to promote a more vigorous American manhood. The policy adopted by the War Department to carry out the provisions of the act of Congress of June 1916, is a matter of vital importance to every citizen interested in the educational system of our country and the development of American youth. It will aim to give all students of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps a thorough physical training, to inculcate in them a respect for all lawful authority, to teach the fundamentals of the military profession, leadership, and the special knowledge required to enable them to serve efficiently in the various branches of the military service. The War Department aims to establish in selected civil educational institutions a system of training, which will tend toward making better citizens and furnish a means whereby the graduates of such institutions can function more advantageously to the best interests of the nation in time of military necessity. Major Arthur W. Chairsell. with the assistance of one non-commissioned officer, assumed work in Knsley High School at the opening of the school session. September, 1919, having been detailed by the War Department. During the first semester. 1919, there was enrolled in military training at Knsley High School eighty students, and at the close of the second semester in May, 1920, the enrollment had increased to 150 students. A competition was held at the close of the school year 1919-20 to select students for the R. O. T. C. Summer Camp, held at Camp Jackson. S. C. Twelve students were selected from Knsley and made a creditable record while at camp. These students were given preference in selecting officers for the battalion and practically all of them hold commissions as cadet officers. Major Chairsell was relieved from duty as P. M. S. and T. at the beginning of the school year 1920-21, and was succeeded by Lieut. Colonel R. M. Xoian. U. S. A.. Retired. 74L L.

This club was first organized in 1H18. with Mr. Tobin, as Commercial teacher. Since that time the club has progressed remarkably and has been of great value to the Commercial students. This semester the club was organized on March 8. with Miss Stella McMullin, in charge of the department, and Miss Stacey and Miss Iluganin as advisors. 'I'he aim of the club is to show the advantages of a commercial course and to gain the co-operation of the business institutions of Birmingham, as well as for the members of the club to gain a practical idea of business; to accomplish this several trips have been made to the different factories and commercial plants of the city and distinguished lecturers have been brought to the school by this organization from time to time. 'I'he greatest resource of the Commercial Club is not its capital, but its human element. Every member is made to feel that he is one of the group of ambitious students associated together for the purpose of discussing actual business problems. There is a keen satisfaction in the consciousness of giving our fellow students a broader outlook and stronger equipment for their life work and a greater comfort and influence in the world. 84Commercial ci ub Advisors Miss McMullin Miss Stacey Miss Iluganin Officers Russell Tinklepaugh----------------------------President Nell Fryer Vice-President Katie Spurgeon Secretary Elizabeth Riordan Treasurer Madelaine Fontille------------------------------Reporter Aubury Williamson Business Manager Sybil Todd Business Manager Mildred Avery Pearl Bryant Ruth Blackwell Flora Benton Ruby Bradly Georgia Butler Jack Bonfield Vera Blankenship Gladys Campbell Sam Calloway Alma Crabtree 'IVsie Derrick Lillian Erickson Maude Fallow Nell Fryer Madelaine Fontille Grace Fulton Planch Glenn Cecil Gafnea Rubv Gibson W illie Gough Members Mary Belle Huey Stella Howton Margaret Johnston Dessic Hamilton Louise Lloyd Ethel Lacy Hazel Lusk Gena Luquire Mildred Lacy Mary Lou McCall Jcttie Mae McClure Mary McEachern Marguerite Meagher O’Dahlee Mason Xellie Malone Emma Martin Jeannic Nelson Josephine Phillips Lois Regan Elizabeth Riordan Mattie Rutledge Yergia Reynolds Grace Riggan Irene Richards Aldis Robins Katie Spurgeon Josephine Strain Bonnie Syler Louise Sherman Alma Strain Christine Tollett Mary Turner Sybil Todd Xellie W right Mildred Williams Janice Williams Violet Wilhite Estelle Walker Russell Tinklepaugh Rosalie Webb Aubrey Williamson Herchial YanSant 85The Athletic A ssociation The Athletic Association of the Ensley High School has become quite a large and active club.

Foot Ball Thirty-seven promising grid performers reported to Coach Ilovater on September 31 and began the fall training. This was about the largest group that ever reported tor practice, in the history of E. H. S. In tins bunch only four old men reported, namely: Peck, three year end: ‘ Dog" Fayet, two year guard and tackle: llulan Whitehead, one year backfield. and John “Iloss ’ Gandy, three year end and backfield man. who was later elected captain. Around these men Coach Ilovater built his 19 30 machine. After two weeks of hard practice the Yellow Jackets began their season: meeting and defeating Etowah County High School by a decisive score. Even in this first game the Jackets brought into play the old Alabama shifts and plays, completely baffling their opponents several times. Then came the game with Tuscaloosa, in which the team failed to deliver as was expected, yet managed to win by a close score. And so it was all during the season. Each opponent, except one. was met, conquered, and left the field with a big goose egg as the result of his struggles. The last game played, was with our old rival. Cental. Although, getting away with a flying start with a touchdown ‘a la forward pass.” our team was finally beaten, owing to severe penalties and the superior weight of the Crimson and W hite warriors. Coach Ilovater depended on the team work rather than working one or two men most of the time. Thus the opposition could not tell whom to “lay for,” but had to watch the team as a whole. Altogether the season was exceeding successful, financially and in scores made. Only two varsity men have graduated and gone. Peck, coming back for post graduate work, making the prospects for 19 31 very bright; and if Coach Ilovater returns everyone is looking toward the state prep championship for Ensley High. 89Players Center Dave Rosen feld Guard---------------Judson Moody Guard-----------------John Gandv Guard----------------------Hobson Anderson Guard----------------------August Favet Forward, Captain------Paul Scokel Forward-------------Ernest I lagler Forward-----------------------Zac Walker Guard------------------Dean Peck 00Bas ket Ball 1920-21 Schedule of Games Jan. 23—Dora vs. Enslcy. at Ensley.

Basket Ball Basket ball was late getting started at E. II. S. this season, but when it was started it did not lack pep and enthusiasm. The first day’s practice showed many stars among the fifteen who reported: although, there were only six or seven experienced men. After a few days of strenuous practice, the team had been picked and soon developed into a smooth working machine. The first game was with Dora at Ensley. The Ensley Jackets showed much pep and winning ability, taking this game by a score of 37 to 16. 'l’he next game was played at Columbiana, but by fate the tables turned against us, and we lost by a score of 21 to 22. Our next game was with Simpson, who had Ensley “on the ear” until the last few minutes of play, when we put it over on them in good fashion. 19 to 14. Then the Jackets left on a trip through northern Alabama, where we played three games, winning two. which was a fairly good record. The scores were as follows: Dora 15-10. Russellville 17-34, and Haleyville. 13-4. All were very close and hard fought games. Next we played at Leeds, where one of the best games was exhibited, because the Leeds quintet had the Ensley boys to a score of 16-19. W ith thirty seconds to play; Ensley. realizing her danger, shot two field goals and finished the game in the last thirty seconds of play with a score of 20-19. Then came the great interscholastic event, which we entered and by hard luck drew one of the strongest teams in the state to play, the Greenville boys, who defeated us by a score of 37-26. This took all of the pep out of the boys, but they had one more game to play with Leeds High, who came here. This game was our best and most interesting, because it was so hotly contested. Ensley’s team fought to the finish, but by the referee’s decision the game went to Leeds. Although we won but five out of nine games, we call it our most successful season and feel sure a better season will follow next year. 91Girls Basket Ball The girls’ basket ball season at Ensley High School this year has been very successful and more has been accomplished than ever before. At the first of the season a meeting of the basket ball girls was held. Miss Helen Bowen was elected captain and Miss Edith Bell, business manager. There was good material shown in the candidates for basket ball, although it was the first year for many. In spite of the late start in practicing, the girls made good headway, and under the coaching of Miss Evelyn X icolls were rapidly put into shape. Only two outsides games were played this season.

H. s; started out with a vim, and with about thirty-five l el lows out tor the first day's practice. However, only three old men were back and as a result prospects did not seem very bright. Notwithstanding this tact the boys got down to real hard work and pretty soon began to show some signs of becoming a first-class formidable aggregation. Although Coach Hovater did not have a reliable hurler to start off the season he soon uncovered two boys who showed lots of promise and had plenty of ‘‘stuff on the ball. These boys are Frcil and McWhirter. The Jackets have a fast, well balanced infield and a hard hitting outfield combination which bids fair to rank with the best in the state. Freil was elected captain and under his leadership the Yellow Jackets had a most successful season. By the final count, Knslev led the league, thereby winning the pennant of the Jefferson County High School League.

Jest hush! You can't tell us nothin’ bout ghosts.” This from a grizzly old lumberman, the acknowledged orator of the lumber camp. Con Peterson and Henry Watson, two boys who were making their way through college, had secured the position as bookkeepers for the summer in a lumber camp in northern Mississippi. "There's a house in the swamp over yonder what’ll put your skin full of holes for you if you'll give ’em half a chance. I went in there once and 1 hadn't been in there more'n five minutes afore I felt little raw places coming on my skin. An’ what's more, there’s a standing offer of $10 to any and every enterprising young man what has the nerve to go and stay in that house ten minutes.” Jake finished his speech and glanced around at the men seated about the fire. "Ain’t it so. boys?" he asked. Several grunts answered in the affirmative. Now Con and Henry prided themselves on their disbelief in ghosts, and then. too. that $10 bill was a strong argument. "We'll take that offer up, won’t we. Con?" said Henry. "I don’t think I'm at all bashful about taking ten ’bones" off you folks, seeing that you are all so anxious to part with your ‘chink’." 100“Well, seeing that tomorrer's Sunday, and a very good time to perform the exercise of stretching your legs, we’ll have the pleasure of being there to watch the race.” Accordingly, about ten-thirty the next morning the two boys started on their adventure. The old cabin was close to the region of a great swamp which was thickly overgrown, except one narrow road which reeled from side to side, like a ship on a rough sea. There were only two rooms to the house, which seemed to cover the only rocky place in the whole marsh. The lumber jacks followed the boys at a distance, but halted a few paces from the house and stood watching in great expectancy. “What do you suppose is in there?” whispered Con. The boys approached the house and threw the door open, but that still left the room rather dark. “Look—look! Something—white—what?” Henry could scarcely speak tor fright, while Con was losing no time in exercising his legs. They ran quite back to the men. whose jeers evidently brought them to their senses. They knew that there could be no such things as ghosts, but surely they had seen something and whatever it was, it was up to them to find out. Slowly they walked back to the cabin. They peered in: a gust of air rushed in from a small window in the rear. It seemed as if all those big. white things, wiggling and twisting and sparkling, were being borne towards them on that one breath of air. Again they fled. They returned however firmly resolved to find out what those things were. Con went into the midst of the things and found them to be only vapors. “Ouch!” lie yelled. "Now what do you suppose that was?” He looked at his hands and found them covered with little raw places, there were a few on his face. Suddenly an idea flashed into his brain. He picked up some of the bright sparkling things that formed the floor of the cabin, and wrapped them in some tin foil which he happened to have in his pocket. Then he and Henry cooly seated themselves in the darkest corner of the cabin and for fifteen minutes carried on an animated conversation. At the end of the allotted time they came out and told the men that they had talked with the ghosts, who had told them that a great fortune was coming to them. Monday, Con and Henry got off from work and went over to Natchez where there was an expert assayist. They gave him the sponge-like things and he took them back into the laboratory to test them. In about five minutes he returned to state that it was a phosphorescent fungas growth that is very useful for medicine. Con jumped up with a whoop. “Our fortunes are made, ole top; no more work for ‘yours truly’ this summer.” With their combined earnings the boys bought the land about the house. They corresponded with the officials at Washington and in a few days some men came out to look at the property. They placed its value at $00.000— making $.‘50,000 for each. “Tliey’s just natcherly some lucky dogs in this world.” said Jake the next night. “Jest think of them fresh young upstarts making $10,006 apiece—and $20 came from us." —MARJORIE BASS, '22. 101An unsophisticated little Freshman Started out from home one day; He wandered and wandered far and wide. Till he came to J. and there his Mecca lay. The sky began to darken. That little Freshman thought of rain: Then his eyes came out on stems And he looked and looked again. That school was Red Mountain in disguise, It was wider than the widest latitude; It began at one end and ended at the other. It was longer than the longest longitude. The little Freshman stopped, His books fell to the ground; His hair rose up. His throat refused to make a sound. Was that the K. 11. S. He had heard so much about? He wondered if he ever got in If he ever, ever would get out. He had to go. he stumbled up. The doors swung open with a thump; Old F.. H. S. grinned in satanical delight And then it swallowed that little Freshman up 10 Four Years Later: A bold sophisticated Senior Sauntered out from home one day; Lie loitered and loitered daintily. Till he came to J, and there his Mecca lay. The sky was bright and clear. That Senior bold jauntily swung his cane. He carefully polished his monocle, And began to look and look again. "Ah! Old dcah! Where is the bally school? How inconsiderate of it to be so small. Really now what a bore To have to come at all!’’ Well, he’d come on any way So the day could start at nine; He’d drop by and see 1 1 E.. Just to make the man feel fine. 'I'he doors swung open. The teachers bowed all in a bunch: Then he gave this order, whistling up the stairs. “Buns and pickle a la doz. for lunch.” At last that Senior strutted forth again. He leaned his arm upon the roof: then said he: "Vengeance! I used to be afraid of you. But now. old E. H. S.. you're afraid of me!" —MARGARET WOOD. 10:1The Junior Girls Have you ever met the girlies Of Knsley’s Junior class? Come over to the window— Some of them arc going past.

There is a dark eyed, dark haired maid, Cheeks rosy as a melon. You cannot keep from loving her For she. you see. is Helen (Ransom ). And there is Stella Goodman.

As I was walking leisurely down a street in the business section of the “.Magic City,” I was startled by a hearty slap on the back. I turned and found myself face to face with my old room-mate. K. E. Smith, whom I had not seen since our school days. “Well, Tom Carter, this is a pleasant surprise! What arc you doing in the old city? ' asked E. E. as we shook hands. "Oh, just looking the place over. Some city you’ve got, isn't it?” 1 replied. "You bet. but just wait until you see my school!" and Smith swelled with pride. “Get into my car and I will take you out there immediately." We seated ourselves comfortably and began to talk over old times, recalling our numerous pranks and jokes. 'I’lie automobile came to a halt in front of the school, and I gazed in open-mouthed astonishment at the beautiful building and attractive surroundings. “What do you think of it?" Double E presently asked. "It is a beautiful building.” I answered quite honestly. After displaying to my admiring eyes the rooms and auditorium, and explaining every detail, he silently led the way toward the back of the building. "This is a new addition to our school." and Smith began to laugh, arousing my curiosity to a great extent. Me opened a door and pointed to a handsome and mighty “Horse." I uttered a sharp exclamation and approached the gentle animal. 1 began to pat him affectionately on the shoulder and was rewarded by a friendly neigh. We were interrupted by an angry voice which said: "You git out of here, you old hypocrite." An angry flush arose to my face as I turned in the direction of the voice. A large parrot was impudently regarding me from a pair of beady eyes. When I saw who had spoken the unpleasant words. I broke into a hearty laugh; and. joined by Smith, we roared with laughter. "We call him ‘Pollyand lie is quite impudent." explained E. E. when our laughter subsided. Here otir conversation was brought to a stop, by the noisy entrance of a short sturdy “Dog.” At the sight of Smith, he gave several friendly barks, accompanied by a violent wagging of his tail. Double E opened another door and as we entered we were greeted by a chorus of excited voices, which issued forth from different parts of the room. He first showed me “Goat." who looked at me rather suspiciously and approached me with a savage jerk of his head. Smith soon restored order and everything went on smoothly. Next came “Pup.” whom I instantly recognized to be a brother of "Dog.” My attention was attracted by the approach of ‘‘Goose." who came wabbling across the room (reminding me of that popular dance, "The Shimmy"), quacking his welcome to his beloved master. Behind “Goose.” came “Cat ’and “Puss.” who seemed to be in a very good humor until they saw “Pup.” They bristled up. preparing to fight, and looked so savage that “Pup” retreated to a safe distance. “This is everybody’s pet.” explained E. E., pointing to a beautiful canary (“Bird”) perched on his swing, singing lustily. "These comprise our ‘Menagerie’ at present, but we hope to have other animals in the near future." announced my pal as we left the room. —LILA MAY CAXTEY. ’22. 105"Who He Was "More dishes needed right now. Boss says to hurry." was impatiently hurled at the cook and his crew from all directions. “Ask him how I can get out dishes with no one to wash ’em?" he boomed hack with intenseness that was increased by the unbearable heat of that small lumber camp kitchen. "Please, may I try to help? I'm sure 1 could be of some use." asked a weak, mild voice with noticeable anxiety in it. "Come along and get busy." the cook answered hurriedly, but less harshly. and turned to face a man a little past middle age. but looking much older. His hair was snow white but remarkably thick, his face which wore an anxious. questioning expression was seamed with lines certainly not caused by age, and he walked as though weighed down by a load too heavy for his body. When given a stack of dishes to wash which would have discouraged anyone else, he calmly obeyed, showing a wonderful skill in the use of his hands, though they did not look accustomed to such labor. How he ever managed to do all the work piled on him by those busy kitchen men no one could understand. He probably would have been overwhelmed if he had known what he really did. It never seemed to occur to him to stop working if he could find anything to do. for he seemed to be kept np by a force which no one could fathom. While at first he was timid and shy, seeming to want to hide from every one. especially strangers, he soon gained more confidence and made himself so agreeable and useful that even the most sour and hard-hearted of the whole mining gang liked and respected him. One dreary rainy Sunday, when most of the men were lounging around the mess room, as it was the most sociable place, the "Doc" (as they called him. probably because of his intelligent air) had an inspiration. He conquered his shyness and standing on the rough oak table addressed the group. "Why can’t we have a little singing to pass the time away? I am sure there are a few songs we all know." The men, weary of doing nothing, entered heartily into the plan. "I have a banjo and I can play a little." said one man. seemingly not knowing whether to be ashamed or not. One after the other volunteered their services in supplying instruments to help the singing until they had quite an orchestra, even though the instruments were slightly out of tune from lack of use. The nten became interested and sang with a vigor that made the old walls rattle. Since the first venture was such a success they decided to try again and so the next Sunday they had another meeting and liked it so well that it became an established custom. Then, like many brave men before him. the old "Doc" turned missionary to those hard working world forsaken men. While he never at-temoted to preach he helped to soften their thoughts by guiding them to songs that would tend to do so. IOCThey now began to wonder who this man could be and why he had come there. They could get no satisfaction from him and none of them could guess the riddle. As time went on the "Doc" became more and more important in their lives and they began to take him as a matter of course. One winter day. after the routine work was over, he started out for a walk as he often did. and while he was walking a severe storm arose. He came home drenched but. as this was no uncommon occurrence to the men. they thought nothing of it. The next morning he was very sick. 'I'he men became alarmed and went for a doctor, who, when he saw "Doc." said it was a very bad case of pneumonia and that they must take good care of him. He continued to grow worse and worse, and finally they had to give up all hope of his recovery. About a week after he became sick he died, but before his death he managed to tell them that they would find a letter among his possessions which would tell them where to send his body and whom to inform of his death. About two years before this time in a large hospital in New York a very serious operation was being performed and the attending doctors were very anxious as to its outcome. Xurses hurried to and fro and doctors looked worried. Dr. Philman in particular seemed worried, for he was in charge of the case. Whenever bespoke, it seemed to make the nurses hurry more than ever, to do whatever he suggested. Next, we sec Dr. Philman in his office where they had finally persuaded him to go to rest, but instead of resting he was pacing the floor. Finally an attendant opened the door and said: "Doctor, she is dead.” Dr. Philman rushed out of the room and up to the patient, but seeing that his assistant had already taken charge of the situation he returned to his office and wrote to his wife and daughter, who were traveling in Europe, that he was going away for a rest. He left his assistant in charge and disappeared completely. The operation, which had been thought fatal at first, proved to be successful, for, by strenuous efforts on the part of the doctors, the woman recovered. But they could not find Dr. Philman to tell him of his success. They searched everywhere and even thought he might have taken his life, so they had all the guards on nearby bodies of water notified to watch for any sign of him. Xo trace was found of him until after two years—they were notified of his death in an obscure lumber camp." —HKI.KX RAXSOM.The Smithville Breeze Smithville s First, Finest and Foremost Publication VOL 1 SMITHVILLE. ALA. NO. 3 STRANGE SUICIDE CAUSES GREAT EXCITEMENT AMONG STUDENT BODY AND FRIENDS. Great excitement was aroused, among the students this morning when It was learned that Miss Cuptola Neal, a very popular and l»e-loved teacher, had taken her own life. The suicide occurred at ten minutes after ten this morning in 217. where Miss Neal has taught laitln for the past three years. The pupils were passing to and from their classes when Miss Burns heard a woman scream in 217. Bushing to the scene she found Miss Neal prone on the floor in the last throes of mortal agony. Miss Klims attempted to loosen the patient's collar hut Miss Neal cried out In anguish. "No. no. you can't gel it any tighter. They won't make them any tighter. ' These strange words were her last. Physicians. who arrived rfter the patient had expired, .ronounecd it as their opinion that Miss Neal had choked herself to death. Friends of the deceased claim that she had acted peculiarly for several days and seemed to be most distressed because she could not obtain any tighter collars. .Miss Neal leaves a very large circle of friends and admirers to mourn her demise. HOWD'Y, faculty: Just as the Bell rang, the Porter of the Adams Cafe, formerly of Paris, with a Callup came into the office to announce that the Thorn-berry pie. which Peter, the cook, had made with White flour from the Milter, was a mass of Burns and they could not ho|H to sell It tor even a Nlcoll.

PRINTERS' STRIKE AVERTED Considerable anxiety was to be found in the Gaboo's office recently when the news came that n printers’ strike was In full effect and all print shops were empty. Realizing that action must l e taken, the Gaboo hastened to the publishers and Interviewed several of the striking INTRODUCTION. I. the undersigned, have been commanded. not requested. to describe myself, not as others see me, but as I am. This, even to one of such singular attainments as myself, is not simplicity itself. The mere worda of even our descriptive language are wholly inadequate for the situation. The portrait can be so easily overdrawn on the complimentary side, but when it comes to depicting true worth, it seldom suffices. One would always pick me from among any group of ordinary beings, as representing the very highest type of mentality. 1 have the high Intel lectual forehead of the deep thinker: large eyes that sec all. know all; and a mouth from which under different circumstances, words of wisdom would pour forth; but the present circumstances force me to alter the natural inclination of my deeper feelings, Instead of disposing of the sage advice of a genius which would be a benefit to posterity. So here I am editing the Smithville Breeze. Early In January when I was urged to take over Knsley High School's greatest publication. I was glad to sec what wisdom and foresight the students were showing In calling ui on me, for I can sec. hear and learn more than any other person and from one look at my chin you cun see i have no scruples about not telling ull I learn. I am the reproducer of the meaningless nothings spoken by my inferior associates. As such you behold me. the instrument of the editors. THE GABOO. printers, who were lounging about their old working place. After learning the demands of the strikers, which were more hours and less pay. and half time for overtime, the Gaboo Immediately began plans for settling the strike, so far as the Breeze publishers were concerned. A wire to union headquarters. which offered a complete solution to the strike, met with Immediate acceptance. Then the Gaboo sent another wire which stated that if the printing shop owners would give the printers a half day-off on Sunday thev should call off the strike. This plan met the approval of both sides and the strike was settled long enough to get out the Breeze. GRIST OF DIVORCE MILL.

Each year the stuff of the Gleam has been faced with the difficulty of filling us much apace as possible to make the final larger and better than ever." and since there has not been a insularity contest for the past two years, the ats ve mentioned staff decided, to have one this year; to serve more as a space filler than for any particular Interest it might have. Owing to the difficulty of deciding such a contest by popular vote, due to the desire on the part of the student body to use argument, persuasion or blackmail, and due to the fact that a committee of teachers would have been just as unfair and unreliable, the staff asked me, the Gaboo. Rditor of the Smith-vllie Breeze, to decide the winner In each contest. It is not necessary' for me to add that they could never have found a better or more competent judge If they had looked the whole school over.

In the “Booster” Mr. Byrum says the Kiris know a good thing when they see It. Then he proves they do by stating that they chose the Shakespearean s to help them In several things. The “Oracle" says Mr. "Preston" II a sale r was reinstated. We suppose Pete changed his name for the occasion. The “Oracle" makes a statement that the Shakespearean did well to follow their example by printing the “Booster." Therefore the "Gleam” gives Itself credit for the “Oracle.” That "Pair of Burglars" must have had experience outside of school to be so natural on the Stage. Wonder why Robert Byrum was chosen to lead the red side of the Shakespearean . The Delphian Oracle says a certain program of theirs was excellent. Do you suppose the Society knew It until the paper came out? The Shakespearean never will forget that the Delpliians said their winning of the debate was a semi-annual affair. If the DelphlaitS keep up that series of cities, why don't they write up Pratt City or W .via m? it certainly was nice of the Shakespearean to write a paragraph on Woman along With Fleas and Ants. Yes. we agree with the Oracle that the Delphian hold a great many high offices. Including biggest bluffers, and biggest eaters too. STATISTICAL REPORT OF SENIOR CLASS.

During the la-It col l spell his spring onions were killed. The Glee (Muli has learned to sing "Let the Rest of the World Go By" quite well. We notice that Miss Josephine Turner has a new book from the library entitled, "Loved and l ist.'' Elizabeth Davis lost her transfer last Friday and was compelled to pay carfare. You see Elizabeth's looks don’t count. At all the latest social gatherings Miss Marjorie B.iss has been requested to recite that heart-rending passage. "To Me It Seems I,Ike Heaven." It is quit touching when given the proper emphasis. MIs Margaret Wood recently went on a food, strike eating only the choicest hits of soap. Fairy soap preferred. The following excuse was turned in at the office on the morning of March 17. ami may be used as a model: Dear Mr. Smith: Please excuse Mr. Hovater's tardiness on March I 1 11, owing to the disturbed condition of the elements and the un-stablcness of the "terra firm i" he met with a very disastrous and unfortunate accident.
