The days of sehool were going fast,
As through their senior year they passed.
The boys and girls 'mid toil and dread
NVelre approaching the plaee where it could be said-
i WR-'ve finished!
Their brows were smooth, their eyes bright,
And filled with looks of pure delight,
That flung this message on the air-
W4-'ll reach the goal, we're almost there,
l ln happy homes you'll see at night
The boys and girls with faces brightg
As o'er their much worn books they bend-
They know their labor soon will end-
. They'1l finish!
xvOl1!1'O bound to pass, the teaehers sayg
l You shall not throw your time away.
Tile four long years are almost done,
Youill soon be through-the victory won.
' 4 You'1l finish!
Beware of idling on the way!
l Do not be led aside by play!
i These :ire the words that you must heed,
If you would win the height indeed.
At close of school, one by one,
They hear the welcome words, well done.
And while the others joy they share,
They hc-:ir the answer to their prayer,
The goal is rent-hed, the victory won,
The four years liigh school work is done!
And now upon eonnneneenient day,

make our last will and testament, the contents of which relate to the disposition of all
property, articles or chattels which are related to us as a class.

over-worked faculty of Floydada High Sehool in directing the hitherto ill-managed affairs
of said high school.
II. Steve lllarshall leaves to li. V. Huskey his annually paid up interest in the
feminine blonde 1ll0lllllL'l'S of said high school faculty.
III. To Charles Mathews we assign John 'Edwards' condescending attitude to the
lesser subjects of the Freshman 2lllClHSO1lll01ll0I'C classes as well as his much used privilege
of making announcements in chapel.

"How to Reduce G1-acefully to Music?
V. "Front I'oreh'l Carter bequeathes to Dave Luttrall his ability for splitting the
breeze in his well-known mile run, with the admonition to retire early to win.
VI. VVe give Ouida Crabtreels golden silence to Tlxelnia Covington, with the ardent
hope that she will make use of the same.
VII. Truman Webb generously wills his gracious "bea.rtone" and his irrepressilole
giggle to Lloyd Bedford, with the hope that he will keep the sonibre halls of F. H. S.
resounding With the familiar two.
VIII. To Claudia Green we bequeath Sally I-lill's erowning mop of yellow curls,
Knowing that she will adopt them to her best advantage.
IX. Harold l?orterfield leaves N. B. Stansell his overgworl-:ed privilege of court- I
ing in the halls, as well as his book on "How to Dodge the Faculty." W
X. Evelyn Maddox wills Maxine Norris her copy of Dr. Miles' paznphlet on H.-ire
You Too Thin?"
XI. To any one desiring to follow in their footsteps, Sanford Shaw and Pike llannsi
leave their treatise on "XVork." Q'l'his is in excellent condition as it has never been used.j
XII. To Jim Carter we give the privilege, formerly held by Oran Nlowrey, of deftly
playing erasers without the knowledge of the tm-acliers.
XIII. To any one who can fulfill the requirements. Ouida llell leaves her refreshing'
l charm and rippling laughter and the hope tha1 1hey will be as successful as she in nianag. W
ing the opposite sex.
XIV. IVe hereby set our hand and seal lhis first' day of May, in lhe year of our
Lord, nineteen hundred and twenty-eight. W

THE HQIVIE OF THE
Hail! Hail! The Junior Class is here,
With a dandy school spirit and lot o'pep5
We're leading all the classes this year
S0 follow us and keep right in step.
Hep! Hep! We march
With great consolation
To a huge apartment house
Called the "Juni0r's Reputation."
"Miss VVelcome" is the landlady of our home,
She greets everyone with a smile
Instead of With a grumble and a groan.
The most beautiful room is called the "Rules"
By which we all abideg
The next is "Demerits"
From which we gladly turn aside.
The little anti-room is Called 'Dis0b0dience",
Which we know nothing ofg
While to the right is :n room called "Fa1ne',,
The one lVllil'll we Jl2niu"s crvilted.
Now, my fellow 1-lassmvn, you have seen,
The mansion of the Junior Ulzissg
.Xnd for its beauty and ln-lp to the svhool
lt cannot be surpassed.

Fellow classmates, as we are wavering to and fro on
the high tide of modern civilization, we should build our
character and reputation so as to carve for us a discreet
and ideal office in this world.
On one side, classmates, the ambitious and talented
young man and woman is very discernable, while 011 the
other side we see the young man a11d woman whose talents
are latent, because they have exercised no effort to develop
them. As we are IIOWV entering into a Vast space, known as
the world, with which side, elassmates, shall we place our
We now realize that our high school days and laeonie
period of frolie is over, and our avoeation is beckoning us
thither into the world. As we go forward with a cheerful
heart and fascinating smile, to resume this duty, may we
know nothing but to succeed and success. Then the world
is ours and all that is in it.

1 Did you ever stop to wonder
In some leisure hour,
Why the little things of life
' Have so much power?
' Have you sat within a garden
- With the tulip and the rose,
W And Watched the flitting butterflies ' '
3 In their gayly colored clothes?
X When you Walked in the orchard
And a bluebird darted by,
Did you quickly glance toward Heaven
And compare him with the sky?

1 What make life worth while.
1 These little trifles are the friends
1 That make us smile.

According to the above schedule Coach
Jay's powerful VVhirlwind eleven plowed their
way to victory through some of the most valiant
defenses XVest Texas has to offer. Each player
was n star in his own line. But to every Victor
must eonie the bitter cup of loss. This cup came
upon the red letter day of the VVhirlwi11dys
career. A special train was provided by the
town to carry boosters to the fatal Slatou gameg

The basketball season of the VVhirlwinds this year wus, on the whole, Very sue-
eessful. The beginning of the season was Il big vim-tory over Rolls, followed by another
over the same opponent. Out of three rounds with Urosbyton the lenders of the Green and
NVhite eaptured two. Hale Centerls quintet came out at the large Olld of the l1or11 in two
eonseeutive games, then the Whirlwinds took :L 25-14 victory to repay the other two.
Vietories for F. H. S. were picked at random from l'etersburg, Post, Ida. Lou, 1x.IC1l11JI1iS,
The conclusion of the season was the District Tournament nt Lubbock, in which
Floydada represented Floyd County. They won the right to represent their eounty by
four eonseeutive victories over Loekney. At this meet, the Whirlwinds in the first round
defeated Lamesag in the second round, Post, whieh carried theni into the senli-finals. In
the semi-finas they met the powerful Lubbock Hi Vtfesterners, who defeated them by ai
Seore of 33-17. This was the elose of at thoroughly enjoyable and successful season for the
Whirlwinds. The hope of this yearls squad is that the squad of ,29 will not only play up
but will lead on the record set this year.

. On February 3rd and 4th, Uoaeh Qlke Jay and his VVhirlwind Quintet were hosts to some
ll fifteen basketball teams representing as many prominent lVest Texas schools. This tourna-
ment was strictly an invitation event, for the purpose of testing the strength of the va- f
W ' A
rious teams. The teams present were: Lublmoek, Laniesa, Slaton, Loekney, Plainview,
. 1fTCll11JlllS. ldalou, Petersburg, and Floydada. The games began Friday afternoon, and '
l continued through that night, Saturday morning, afternoon, and night.
l As :L result of eliminations, the teams reporting for the finals on Saturdaiy night, S
l were ldalou and Floydada. The gym was paeked with interested speetators for this game.
. The two teznns were well-matched and the boys on each seemed determined to win the
L coveted c-up. NVhen the whistle blew for the close of the game the score hoard revealed
a tie, 25 and 25. The game was continued for five minutes, during which two scores were
T gained by the VVhirlwinds, making the final score 27 to 25 in favor of F. H. S. Tho cup
Q was awarded to Captain NYeblw of the NVhirlwinds by Mr. J. C. XVester, former couch, and
the silver basketlmalls were awarded to the members of the Idalou team for seeond place. 1 1
' The tournament was a great suec-ess and Floydada High Sehool and Coach Jay, especially, l 5
are to be congratulated on their efforts to promote better felowship among the schools
of the plains. i

After a careful estimate of the points thus gained, it was found that Floydada was
the winner of the All-Round County Championship Cup and that Steve Marshall, outstand-
ing Floydada athlete, was High Point Man of the Meet with a total of 21 points to his
credit. The Girls' Debate Cup became the permanent property of Floydada High School,-
as this is the third consecutive year it has been won by this school. It is the sincere hope
of the Floydada exponents that the several other cups will become speedily the permanent
property of the school, as evidence of the efforts put forth by the school.

' The volley bail girls were eoaeheil this year by Miss lovin. The team was I '
Well chosen by careful elimination. The girls had the grit to practice daily, regardless of
W dirt and dust. Several practice games were played with Sand Hill and various other
1 school teams. The team showed up well against opposition in prnvtiee games, but in the
county meet at Loekney, they were defeated two games out of three by Sand Hill. There
are several members of the team left for next year's work, so a good team is expected to
,1 defend the title of F. H. S. in 1928.

1 beginning of the year, Conch Jay spoke favorably of the prospects for this yezu"s win-
W ning. The contestant in tennis singles had been to state meet one year and to district
twice, The eliminations for contestants in the county meet were held on the school
tennis courts every morning and afternoon. As It result of these eliminations, Jim Carter
Was selected to represent the school in boys, singles, and he and Theron Summerville were
the doubles team. Jim was defeated by the Lockney representative, and the doubles team
won tl1e right to represent the county at the District meet.
