BALL Music THE FACULTY Superintendent Hutchinson and his corps of assistants have done much to better the condition of this school. Their tireless efforts have brought about the question of a new High School building, which, we hope and believe will materialize. They have done a great deal to develop school spirit. Each one is separately interested in clean athleticswhich mean so much to a school of our size. This year the study of music has been introduced, by the faculty, into the Farmington High School, and the musical ability of the students is being developed with great success in the Glee Club.

The class started its high school course with a membership of fifteen. After undergoing a process of natural selection and elimination and re- ceiving certain well-merited and valuable additions, it is, at the period of graduation, composed of three boys and five girls who are entitled to receive the long coveted diplomas. During our entire course, we have been a very peaceful and har- monious body, always working for the good of the school. Through our support the school became prominent in athleticsg and we also played a prominent part in getting the High School placed on the approved list of accredited schools. We are now seniors, having overcome all obstacles which stood in our way to attain an education. After leaving two of our loved members by the wayside, we are graduating with six of the original freshmen members. Among our many attainments is the honor of being the second editors of the Naniskad, which we hope is a decided success as a true representation of the merits of our school, and our school life. Of the graduates, Dorothea Graham will always remain in our mem- ories as the Senior class president and a student of exceptional ability. She was born at Marlow, Oklahoma. After attending three different schools of that state, she went to Durango and then came to Farmington. We do not know why she stayed here, but suspect that it is because she wished to graduate with an intellectual class. Beulah Walker, Rhea Tice, Carolyn Hill and Vergie King were all Eleven born in Farmington and came up from the grades. Beulah is our class secretary and artist. She is also a very brilliant student in languages and mathematics, and well deserves the honor of Valedictorlan. Rhea, the "Tom Sawyer" of the class, always has the best of grades, and is our class musician. Carolyn is famous for her musical and dramatic accomplishments, and her poor grades in deportment. Vergie is our quiet member, but nevertheless she is a good student and is loved by everyone. Robert Duncan joined the class in October of 1920, entering our school as a senior from the Des Moines, New Mexico, High School. He is a good student, is the editor-in-chief of our Annual, and is known to all for his singing and broad grin. Warren Gibson was born at Beulah, Colorado, where he received his first schooling. Later he migrated to Dayton, New Mexico, from which place he came to Farmington and entered the High School as a freshman. He went to the "City of Ruins" for the Sophomore year and the first half of the Junior, but returned, much as the prodigal son, to share the feast of semester exams. which Father Salisbury had ,prepared for him. The 'author of this article was born near Waco, Texas, and completed the grades in the Laplata rural schools. He has always been with the class, and has a remarkable ability of getting out of everything by paying the penalty. V The Class has now arrived at the parting of the ways, and will begin preparing for the various pursuits of life, which we sincerely hope will be as pleasant as the four years we have spent in the Farmington High School.

None knew tbee but to la-'ue thee, Nor izamed thee but to praise." .l IN MEMORIAM Despite all our progress, death yet remains the most appalling of all mysteries and the greatest of human sorrows. After having learned to know and love one with whom we have been daily associated and then feel the inevitable separation, to realize that we shall see him no more, brings an unfathomable void, a sorrow too deep for words. The vacancy left in our school by this noble young life that has departed from among us has brought an anguish for which human sympathy affords no fitting consolation. Byron Swayze entered our high school as a freshman in the year of 1918, and until his untimely death on February 11th, 1921, he was one of the best of students and a beloved friend and companion of teachers and students alike. All school activities claimed his attention and received whole-hearted support. His pleasant, cheery voice, his kindly smile, his delightful personality and sterling char- acter endeared him to all who knew him. Although our sorrow is unutterable, nevertheless we must reconcile ourselves to the painful separationg but his memory will dwell forever fresh in our hearts, and the beautiful example of his short life has re- vealed to us in a more comprehensive way than ever before the sublimity of the consolation and the grandeur of the vision in the philosopher's "View of Death": "So live that when thy 'summons comes to join The innumerable caravan, which moves To that mysterious realm, where each shall take His chamber in the silent halls of death, Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night, Scourged to his dungeon, but, sustained and soothed By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave, Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."

Twenty-f our Denna-at-so-sy-be-ga and At-ly-yaz-ya's Tilt at Arms fBy Beulah Walker, Class of 19211 The Navajos' custom of having more than one wife is so deeply rooted that it seems almost impossible to blot it out. Consequently, when a certain agent on the Reservation at Shiprock, New Mexico, attempted to stop this practice, a great deal of trouble resulted from a very trivial incident. The wife of a member of the tribe, named Denna-at-so-sy-be-ga, who lived at Red Rock, had been ill for several months. Many of the medicine men had been consulted, but she still seemed no better. At last -At-ly-yaz-ya, who was supposed to be the best of all the Navajo medicine men at that time, was asked to try his charms upon her. Soon she appeared greatly improved. Other medicine men, who had treated her, growing jealous of At-ly-yaz-ya's healing power, told the happy husband that At-ly-yaz-ya had been giving the "Squaw" whisky. Denna-at-so-sy-be-ga was very much annoyed and exceedingly angry, for he was a very temperate Navajo and believed that this drink, which so many white men used, was something from the Evil Spirit, since it made those who drank it act so queerly. "At-ly-yaz-ya is in league with the Evil One," said he. "He must not use his power on my wife. I will avenge this wrong." Immediately he began to consider what he should do to punish the evil doer. "Ah, I have it. Hasteen the called the agent at Shiprock by the Navajo namel has said that none of us shall have two wives. At-ly-yaz-ya has three. I shall tell Hasteen this, and then I shall have good revenge, for Hasteen will punish him well." He told the agent of this. Two policenien were sent out to bring the offender against the rulings of the agent to Shiprock. These policemen told him that they had come after him because he had three wives, a thing which I-Iasteen had said could not be. At first At-ly-yaz-ya refused to go, saying, "I will not go with you. You are liars. I have not three wives. Hasteen did not send you." He started to run, but the policemen caught him, bound him and would have taken him to Shiprock had he not pleaded with them so earnestly that they finally promised to say nothing of it, and leave him and his wives alone. But, were they true to their promise? No indeed. They stole the last two wives and put them in prison at Shiprock. At-ly-yaz-ya, when he found that his wives had been stolen, was very angry. He told his friends about it, and they also became angry. Together they went to a store about ten miles east of Shiprock, where they collected, conversing in low, earnest tones. The trader at the store listened. What was that the Navajos were sa in 'V Y g- He understood only a word now and then, since he was not very familiar Twenty-five with their language, and was, therefore, unable to translate what they said quickly. "We will kill the agent . . . steal squaws . . . people too . . . white man cruel . . . kill 'em all." ' From this he learned that they surely must intend to kill the agent and probably the inhabitants of Shiprock. He telephoned the agent, who set guards around the agency at once. The Navajos continued talking in low tones for some time, then all but one, Bejosie, an old medicine man, left the store. The trader, wishing to learn more concerning the matter which the Navajos were discussing, said to old Bejosie, "What is this I hear of all the people at Shiprock going to be killed ?" Bejosie did not like to be questioned and tried to evade the subject, but the trader was too persistent. After he had learned that the Indians really intended to kill the agent, he said, "If you kill the agent or any of the people at Shiprock, trouble will follow. The government will send soldiers out here, and then what will you do?" This frightened Bejosie, and he revealed the whole plot. That night they were to kill the agent and anyone who should seek to interfere, rescue theimprisoned squaws, and then Hee. Bejosie finally decided that no good would come from such an undertaking, and left to persuade the others to abandon the attempt, which they did and all was well for a time. Somehow, no one knows in what manner, the squaws were rescued from jail and taken home. But still this did not satisfy the Navajos, for they seemed to want more than the squaws, but were afraid to do anything because of what the trader had told them. There were rumors that soldiers were coming to settle the difficulty. The Navajos who had planned to rescue the squaws fled to the Beautiful Mountains and hid. .Their leader said, "We shall fight until we are killed, if the soldiers come after us." Each had his gun and was well supplied with ammunition. Soon after two of their number, fearing that they should all be killed, went to Shiprock and warned the agent that the others were "much bad" and that he should send someone to bring them to Shiprock before they killed anyone. Other Navajos who lived near Red Rock, thinking perhaps that At-ly- yaz-ya and his friends would kill everyone, told Cheedy, the trader at the post, what they feared. At-ly-yaz-ya came to the store the next day, and Xvhen Cheedy mentioned what the Navajos had told him, the old Indian said, I never thought of such a thing, Cheedy. You are my friend. Where should I get my food, if it were not for you?" "You could go to Shiprock or Carisso for that, although it would be a rather long distance. But listen, why do you keep on as you are? It does no one any good, and causes more harm and disturbance than is necessary. The agent says that he has sent for soldiers to help him put an end to all Twenty-six this trouble. What will you do when they come? You cannot escape very easily." With merely a grunt, At-ly-yaz-ya left the store, but soon came back with all his followers, who by this time had come down from the mountains. "We have come here for you to protect us. Do not let the soldiers take us. If you use your iniiuence and tell them that we have done no harm, they will not take us." A By this time, Cheedy knew that At-ly-yaz-ya was afraid, and these Navajos stayed at the store for several days, scarcely daring to sleep at nights. Someone was always kept on guard duty. About sunset of the fourth day of their sojourn there, a rider was seen coming over the hills toward them. When he reached the store, he was almost breathless, but hurriedly gave the anxious Navajos his message. "Soldiers are coming here to kill all. They are very mad and will probably kill even Cheedy." Then they were indeed frightened. Some left the store and hid in the rocks, but At-ly-yaz-ya was careful to stay close to Cheedy. The next morning they returned and held a council with At-ly-yaz-ya. They informed him that they would no longer stay by him, because it would only make more trouble, and that they intended to let things go as they were. At-ly-yaz-ya was then persuaded to go to Shiprock and submit to such punishment as the agent thought advisable. After he had gone, the other Navajos took up their old routine of life again, a peaceful and quiet existence, doing no harm to anyone. Denny-at- so-sy-be-ga felt that he had enough vengeance now. Senior Class Prophecy QBy Beulah Walkerj Sitting alone by the open fire, in a rather dreamy mood, my thoughts began to wander.back to my school days and classmates, some of whom I had not seen since we left the High School at Farmington in the spring of 1921. I wondered where they all were, and what each was doing. Sud- denly an old woman stood before me, and, ere I could .recover from my surprise, she addressed me in a very high ,pitched and trembling voice. "Come with me and you shall see what your old classmates are doing." Instantly the fireplace and familiar surroundings of my room seemed to melt away, and I found myself in front of a large theater in a great city. Instinctively I followed the crowd inside, and was soon watching a bewitching actress playing the leading part in a story written by Dorothea Graham, entitled, "My High School Courtshipsf' At first I was unable to recall the actressg but I was aware that I had known her before. Finally I recognized her. It was Vergie King. It really seemed quite impossible, as the old Vergie that I had known so many years ago had always had such a horror of stage people. - Twenty-seven As the play ended, my surroundings were completely transformed into what seemed to be a large observatory for astronomers. Such it proved to be, but what was I doing there? Surely none of my classmates could be an astronomer. A smiling, middle aged gentleman accosted me, and began making all sorts of inquiries about my work, etc. What did he know of me? Imagine my surprise when he informed me that he was my old classmate, Dan Conger. Dan Conger an astronomer! He had never dis- played any interest in such things as planets, star-gazing, etc., in the old high school days. After conversing about old times for a while, the observatory seemed to vanish, and I found myself in a beautiful spot, somewhere in the moun- tains. An artist with her easel was sitting before me, painting the land- scape. She resembled someone I had knovm. I observed her closely and soon recognized her as Rhea Tice. Rhea Tice, a painter! How absurd! She could never be anything but a musician. Nevertheless, here she was painting, and I am sure I was in my right mind. Before I could speak to her, she disappeared and the surrounding country changed into the parlor of a school for girls. The matron was smiling and talking to me of school days in the Farmington High School: but I did not remember just then having anyone like her among my ac- quaintances. At last it dawned upon me that it was Carolyn Hill. How she had changed! She was now a quiet, dignified woman. She conducted me through her school, which was indeed a beautiful one. Again everything faded away, as a vision of mist, and I was in a great, and apparently popular dancing school. The master was very kind, and even offered to teach me dancing, but of course I declined. When I asked his name I was astounded to learn that he was none other than my old' friend and classmate, Warren Gibson. How very funny! Warren had scarcely ever paid any attention to dancing, and now he was teaching it. Swiftly the kaleidoscopic changes transformed everything again, and I was in some out-of-the-way place in a tropical country, which my faint memory of geography prompted me to believe was Africa. A small dwelling with tents around it was before me. While I was wondering what any of my schoolmates could be doing here, a man whom I instantly recognized as Bob Duncan, walked out of the one door of the house. How many more surprises would I be subjected to before I was again back- at my fireside? Bob told me of his life since leaving Farmington. A few years before this time, he had been sent as a missionary to Africa, and now his work was progressing nicely.. Again the scene changed very quickly. I was sitting in a famous opera house, listening to a sweet and beautiful voice. The singer appeared to be someone I had known, and, upon a more careful scrutiny, I discovered that it was Ethel Baldwin. This was not so much of a surprise as had been my previous experiences, for Ethel had always been fond of singing and possessed considerable talent. Slowly she faded away, and the song grew fainter and fainter. I saw the fire before me and the old woman was saying, "Now you have seen your classmates, and I must go." A Before I could thank her for her services, she was gone, and I was again alone with my thoughts before the fire, idly dreaming. Twenty-eight A Tl-ILET IC '5 W SS.

On December 10th, the girls went to Aztec, where, after a hard battle they were defeated by a score of 7 to 9. Unfavorable weather prevented further playing, and it was not until April lst, 1921, that the third and deciding game was played, the Farmington girls winning 14 to 10. The season's work was very satisfactory. The girls displayed a splendid school spirit, and their work was highly commendable in every respect. A Boys The boys team was organized shortly after the Thanksgiving holidays and the first game was played at Aztec, December 10th, Farmington winning handily by a one-sided score of 34 to 19. The next day, however, a strong team came down from Pagosa Springs: and after a hard game characterized by considerable roughness on both sides, we were defeated 23 to 16. After the game with Pagosa Springs, weather conditions were unfav- orable for out-door basketball, and, with the advent of spring, the boys gave their whole time to the development of a baseball team, so that the season was completed with but two basketball games. -vu-nwnavvvvuvv.-,vvvyq AFTER THE GAME Virginia: Clyde, did that Aztec fellow give you a black eye? Clyde: No, just the black, I had the eye all the time. PHYSICALLY SPEAKING Mr. Hutchinson: If I hit a baseball with a force of 6000 grams, what will be the result? Rhea: A home-run, I suppose.

Hutchinson, Coach Joe Wynn, P.g Bob Duncan, S. B. William Bratschi, R. F. BASEBALL The High School baseball team was organized during the second week of school. Joe Wynn was elected Captain and Russel Taft, Manager. The first game was played at Aztec on Friday, September 17, Farm- ington winning by a score of 9 to 6. A week later, September 24, a return game was played on the home grounds, and after a close contest Aztec won 6 to 5. Q Baseball practice had to be suspended for three weeks during October on account of bad weather, and the third game was not played until October 29, when Farmington was again defeated on the Aztec grounds by the score of 8 to 9. Seven of Aztec's runs were made in the fi1'st inning before we were able to get into action. After the first inning both teams played superior ball all the way. ' Spring practice started early in February, and the first game of the season with our old and only rival, Aztec, was played on the Farmington grounds, on March 4, 1921. It was a hard fought battle, our boys Winning by a score of 4 to 3. Two weeks later, March 18, in a return game, we again took Aztec into camp on their own grounds by a score of 3 to 1. The contest was featured by brilliant fielding on both sides, the work of our little shortstop, Rocky Harwood, and our third baseman, Lee Conger, being of a stellar character, as it has been all year. On April 1, another game was played at Farmington. Not an error was made during the entire contest. Farmington proved itself superior to Aztec in fielding, but was unable to hit the ball when hits were needed, and Aztec won, 1 to 0. l ' The last game of the season was played on the Aztec grounds, April 29. Farmington entered the game 'handicapped by having had no practice for three weeks, on account of unfavorable weather. conditions and lost by the score of 4 to 5. The lack of practice was severely felt by all the team except Lee Conger and Rocky Harwood, who played up to their usual brilliant form. As a whole the results of the season are very encouraging. We have developed some fine baseball material, the team has shown a splendid spirit, and in addition to the excellent fielding of the entire team, Captain Wynn's pitching is worthy of special commendation. We can look forward with confidence to a strong team for next year. Thirty-four X ,,'-"':-,- Z L ff ZZ. Z T' 'M Xxx W I:H: I IVI I IEE 1 if 1. XXX N 1 V A P XX V17 'E-f2f'2'74fi:" lgvl x ' .

A glee club has been organized and two successful musical concerts were given, one at Laplata, on the evening of April 8, and the other at Allen's Hall in Farmington on- April 15. The large and appreciative audiences which attended these first real musical efforts on the part of the High School, is sufficient evidence of the demand for such work, and a fitting tribute to the excellent work of our director, Mrs. Minola H. Ball. Mrs. Ball was employed to take charge of the glee club rather late in the year. Despite this handicap and the still more discouraging attitude of indifference on the part of many of the pupils and patrons of the school, through her persistence and splendid ability as director and trainer, she has succeeded in developing some real musical talent and secured results which the most hopeful could scarcely have anticipated. It is our sincere hope and desire that a regular department of music will now be established with Mrs. Ball at its head.

The success of our dramatic work is in a large measure due to the excellent coaching of Miss June Donahue, our director. She has shown herself very efficient in training the casts for the different plays and the High School is deeply grateful to her for her tireless efforts to make its dramatic work a success. Work of this sort involves a great deal of personal sacrifice and brings a great many "hard knocks" of various sorts, but Miss Donahue's keen Irish wit and fine sense of humor is proof against all, and whatever she undertakes is sure to be carried through to a successful conclusion. Bob Duncan: Miss Donahue, isn't my moustache becoming? Miss Donahue: Well, it may be coming, but I can't see it.

Then, truly began the toil-eats, games, clothes 'n everything were discussedg also when, where, who, and why? It was finally decided to have the "doin's" in Hunter's Hall. So forth we sallied to see if the hall was getable. It was!! Next, invites to the seniors, the faculty and a few outsiders were written. At lastflj the eventful evening arrived, and there was much talk and pow-wowing as to how we could dance without musicg but through the kindness of Mr. Miles this was arranged. As you know, "the way to reach a man's heart is through his stomach," so we promised 'em jest gobs of eats, if they'd play. Did they? We'll say they DID! I Then about eight o'c1ock the affair begun to begin. Games were played, some quiet, others otherwise Qfor further reference ask those who played at the "pit" tablej. After games and dancing, lunch was served by the demure and blushing sophomores. Then more dancing and finally the "Home" waltz. Everyone present reported a good time. The faculty reported no lessons next day, and the townspeople reported that we were all drunk-1 CPunch!J. as-navvvvvv-A1.n1.n1vue Los Vivos Initiates the Seniors On October 27, the Spanish Club, "Los Vivos", initiated five new seniors. Many very dark and mysterious things happened that night to the top members of our school curriculum. 5 The candidates were blindfolded and kicked down a Bight of stairs, then hauled into a deep pit where a pair of bare bed springs served as a shock absorber. Just imagine such a thing being done to dignified seniors! There were airplane flights on ironing boards, and while in mid-air, the passengers were very unceremoniously dumped out and left to find their way back to earth, which they did, of course, with a bang. After feeding the new "initiates" some poisoned bread and a few more equally horrible things, the Los Vivos agreed to consider them as members. Forty-nine llllllfflff ll! I The Sophomore-Junior Hike Dear Pa: , h As Pm thinkin' as how mabe you all aint yet recovered from the shock occasioned by my last month's report, I thought it might be well to explain that the things what you find -recapitulated on that card aint all the education we'r exposed to down here in the Farmington High School, and to exuberate upon some of the phases of social life what this school affords. ' To begin with, I want to put you wise to the fact that you all shouldn't consider them deportment marks too literally, because Miss Kelly has got astigmatism or some other eye trouble, and when she catches me doin' a thing once, she sees it twice, under which circumstances, you see, I can't make no headway in that subject. Now as to them social occasions which provides us with so much spontaneous mental excitement and absorbs so much of our superflous intellectual activities, I will just narrate abbreviatedly for the enlightenment of you all, the latest'and most stupendous event, namely the Sophomore- Junior hike, which recently transpired. g It was a superlatively lovely day in December, when we all congregated in front of the red tinted mansion which constitutes the domicile of Marjorie Heald, when she aint got no place to go but home. There was awaiting the confluence of this intellectual gang a commodious hayrack, which we had harmoniously selected in lieu of the later Ford models. Upon this highly conventional vehicle the bunch instantaneously disported itself, when the bloomin' thing contracted a Hat tire, and we had to abandon this con- veryance for the intimately safer and more classical mode of hoofin' it. After kicking up the alkalie dust for a couple of toilsome hours, and damaging our French heels and patent leather hiking shoes, we arrived at our destination which was the old Aztec fort,' serenely' overlooking the placid floods of the Sunny San Juan. Here we selected a spacious gully in which we precipitated our provisions, and then indulged in fa hilariously exciting and vociferous exploring expedition. Several of them ludicrous bipeds what has attained the impressive distinguishment of being designated by the profound title of "Sophs", decided to pull off a few heroic stunts for the edification and emulation of f . . uture high school generations, and proceeded to perambulate up the steep cliffs, from which awe-inspiring elevations' they cast their dignified l g ances over the surrounding country, like the "monarchs of all they surveyed." But when the aromatic oder of San Juan River water mingling with the ul- P verized berry of tropical extraction, otherwise known as coffee, dented their olfa t h ' ' ' ' c ory organs, t ey executed the highly complicated military manoover billigerently known by the phrase "to the rear, march!!"g and gigantically V Fifty satiated themselves with sandwiches and other wholesome eats seasoned with San Juan sand. After the repast, two guys, each of which has the popular appelation of Joe, concluded as how we needed a little entertainment along acrobatic lines, so they just cut loose and did a lot of foolish stunts in a natural sort of way. The final excitement came when Marjorie Heald, who was grace- fully poised upon a mound of packed sand, was precipitated through ten feet of' vacancy owing to the unexpected crumblig of the sand. It was soon over, but Marjorie positively asserts she was falling for a week. This concluded the day's escapade, and I'rn hopin' that this voluminous relation of a sample of the many elevatin' social functions of school life, will convince you that the whole record of our doins aint to be found on report cards. Dutifully yours, Q Alta. The Spanish Club Hike One lovely evening in February Los Vivos started on a genuine hike to Palmer's Ranch for the purpose of initiating some freshmen. When darkness came on a large fire was built, over which each person fried a generous piece of- beefsteak. A superslobgobshus meal was enjoyed by all, after which games were played, and Mr. Hutchinson made a strenuous search for his sombrero. After several hours of fun, considerable of which was at the expense of the freshies, our sponsor- informed us that Spaniards did not keep late hours, whereupon "Los Vivos" sang in chorus, "We won't go home 'till morning." BUT WE DID! Rhea lpunching Dani: Say, is there senior pray-practice tonight? Dan: We sure need it.

'Twas a summer's day in winter: The rain was snowing fast, As a barefoot girl with shoes, on Stood sitting in the grass. It wasevening, and the rising sun Was setting in the west While little fishes in the trees Were cuddled in their nests. The rain was simply pouring down, The sun was shining bright, And everything that you could see .Was hidden out of sight. Then the organ pealed potatoes, Lard was rendered by the choir, While the sexton wrang a dish rag, Someone set the church on fire. "Holy Smoke," the preacher shouted As he madly tore his hair. ' Now his head resembles Heaven, For there is no parting there. THE FORD CH RISTENING Claire Olson, Joe Wynn and Dan Conger were going to name their cars. Claire approached his Buick and said, "I name thee Napoleon Bonaparte, the greatest leader the world ever knew." Joe approached his Oakland and said, "I name thee George Washington, first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen." Dan walked up to his Ford and said, "I name thee Teddy Roosevelt, you rough-riding son-of-a-gun." Bulah had a little lamb, With her it used to frolic. It kissed her on the cheek one day, And died of painter's colic. D0 YOU EVER GET THIS WAY? Warren was taking a peaceful nap one day in the Economics class, dreaming of the blissful day when he should have his diploma and a job at S24 per week. Suddenly Mr. Hutchinson's voice disturbed his slunibers: "Warren, what was the financial condition of the country in 1812 ?" Warren iwaking up hurriedlyjz "Twenty-fourdollars a week." Fifty-six - CAN YOU IMAGINE? Chester learning to shimmy? Miss Sellinghausen growing short? Warren goin' with a girl? Dan talking sensible when there is a girl around? Rhea without a powder puff? Ethel Baldwin without a chew of gum? Mary Fix with her lips closed? Miss Donahue without her baby pout? Virginia McCully not trying to vamp? Ted Amsden a social butterfly? Joe Wynn not teasing Ethel Baldwin? Bob Duncan without his grin? Carolyn Hill not tardy? Beulah Walker without her silly conflab? Vergie doing the tickletoe? Alta with her feet and shoulder still? Dorothea Graham getting "P" in deportment? Irish with a lesson and Iris without a lesson? S . .lun X nu . .Q 'gn 1 u Q! si xl. H- ev' I f.-23:15 if : ' .ffl-QiLf55.1x4' :sg ,' ' '9 x jf .
