Now, listen, all assembled here, and you shall hear a tale that will
make the wild adventures of Great Sherlock Holmes seem pale.
'Tis a story that's most stirring, friends, but bcst of all 'tis true.
It's the I"uture as I saw it, and I'1ll telling it to you.
I have a scientific friend, whose name I shall not tell
VVho is daify on inventions, which he makes but cannot sell,
And so when Christmas comes around he generously sends
A handy, neat invention to each of all his friends.
Now most of these are useless, and just lay around and rust,
But the one I got last Christmas, friends, shall never gather dust.
It was a pair of spectacles, but folks, I soon found out
Thcy were the most remarkable that ever were, no doubt,
For when you look at anyone with these specs beneath your brow
You'll see him as he'll surely be just twenty years from now.
"Alia 1" cried I, "the very thing, for now I'll surely see
The Seniors in the fixture and can write their prophecy."
And so I brought my specs to school to give the things a trial,
I put the specs upon my nose, and turned my anxious face
Toward 'thc Senior section where each one was in his placeg
And the first my gaze did light on was a man in powdery denim,
A-carrying bricks and still more bricks for all that e'er was in him.
His brow was wet and dirty, and his tired back was bent,
Yet he was Louis Hackett, now our worthy president.
My gaze it shifted suddenly. This time my optics chose
A portly ginghamed lady, a scrubbing dirty clothes.
Her face was worn and wrinkled, and her tub was full of suds,
Yet I knew 'twas Eula Tucker washing other people's duds.
I took my gaze from this poor dame, and this time let it rest
On a tall and lanky gentleman in a farmer's outfit dressed.
His overalls were patched and his beard was long and gray,
But I knew 'twas Clifford Duncan-a farmer pitching hay.
My glance next chanced to fall upon a lady fat and sweet,
All clad in shirt and overalls and sitting on the seat I

Of a large and heavy delivery truck, three letters on its side,
'Twas Doris Bailey hauling ive. May she enjoy her ride!
The next scene that I Chaneed to see quite took away my breath.
'Twas Fanny Goff and Ethel lvilson ust as rsue as death,
Dressed as lovely chorus girls whose costumes were most shoekingr,
For they were made of 'thinnest gauze with an awful length of stock-
Then Edith Hansen did I see. Her lot I hate to tell,
For I found her washing dishes in a little eheap hotel.
Carl Anderson, I next did spot--and Oh! 'twould make you ery!
He was wielding' broom and dust mop in the halls of I". G. Ili.
Next Russell Duncan met my eye in an outfit white and neat.
A serub-brush o'er one shoulder, with which he cleaned the street.
Then Francis Yoder hove in sight, a silk hat on his dome,
All dressed in latest Paris clothes that one ean't buy at home.
His garb quite told his fortuneg you'd have known him anywhere,
Our well-known Francis Yoder was a Xvall Street millionaire.
Then Inez Hazlett did appear, and Oh, how I did stare!
Ifor she was dressed in all those clothes that old maids always wear.
Long skirts, and stiff collar, and the funniest of hats,
On one arm a basket that was full of well-fed eats.
Then I saw Avis Crosley and Glenn Sehooleraft, and you know
They were quarrelling about something and just arguing sog
I knew they'd been sent to Congress, for there is it men go
NVhen they went to stir up arguments and get a lot of dough.
And next Victoria Seymour appeared before my sight-
A speller in her left hand, a ruler in' her right.
Quite stern was her expression, for she almost frightened meg
But the truth it is I saw her-an old maid school marin-she!
Then I saw Esther Huhman and Ruth Underhill, as well,
Their work-it was apparent-they had left their happy home
To be saintly missionaries in a land beyond the foam
Then our own Catherine Nicholson appeared upon the scene
A stately married matron, with a family of fifteen.
There next appeared two lawyers of stern and learned mien
lvho were, notwithstanding, ladies-Della Sehlie and Ellen lvallin.
I then saw Helen YVhited and with her was Grave Moore,

They were elevator ladies in a large department store.
And Lida Rice and Hazel Lilly, whom I next did see,
VVere running a large dancing school and quite successfully.
Aliec Redetzkc next I saw, and Neva Parsons, too,
Careering down in Hollywood--I know it scarce seems true.
Then turned I to Blanche Tucker, and it made my senses numb,
She was the portly matron in a school for deaf and dumb.
And next I saw a parson in his black and sober gown,
And I saw 'twas Leon Vlialkcr, a preacher in this town.
And next I saw Iola Gross. a-dancing on l1er toes '
In a large and famous theatre where the king of England goes.
Then saw I Mildred Crowthers, and Lueen Hoskins, too,
In a dark and smelly kitchen, a-making strong home brew.
Then saw I Horace lVilson on the stage of a theatre,
A-starring in the famous play, "The Modern W'oman Hater."
Next I saw Vllaltcr Reisner in a stand down on the street,
A-selling roasted peanuts, and lollypops so sweet.
Then up stepped a book agent, and it gave me twenty shocks
'When in that mild hook pcddler. I saw our Harold Knox.
Then Emma Gene Fish did I spy, and my! I was surprised,
She was a lady doctor. and a good one. I surmised.
Next I saw that Harold Finnegan and Eugene Henderling
YVere busy undertakers with business in full swing.
Thcn Edith Long I vhanced to see-and say, I thought Ifd Hop!
She was a lady barber in a pretty barber shop.
Then I saw Clayton Foreman, and laugh-I thought I'd die!
He was sweeping dirty chimneys in a little town near by.
Then two train conductors in uniform I saw.
One was Mm-do Hickox and the other Lloyd Shaw.
Then I saw Roy Lalfollette-O, what a life to choose!
For I saw him in a boot-blaek's shop a-shining peoples' shoes.
I took the glasses off my nose and heaved a mighty sigh.
Then I got my pen and paper.. and wrote down each scene my eye
Had gathered through the spectacles-these have I told to youg
And if you don't like them, Seniors, you know what you can do..
M. E. A. '27.

For three years the class of 1927 has worked diligently to maintain
and raise the high athletic and scholastic standards of Forest Grove High
School. The inspiring spirit and enthusiasm of the Junior Class predom-
inates every school activity.
Two members of our class helped compose the 1926 debate team.
The class is well represented in all athletics: basketball, football,
baseball, and track. And those Juniors who are unable to "make" the
school teams can be counted on to support them to the best of their ability.
VVe have some splendid actors in the class of 1927. The Junior play,
"Miz Bob," was a marked success., judging from the crowd and applausc.
The class is notably represented in music in High School. The High
School Girls' Quartet is composed entirely of Junior girls while two mem-
bers of the Boys' Quartet are Juniors. A majority of the cast of the Op-
eretta were Juniors and many of them are members of the Glee Clubs.
And socially, the Juniors cannot be surpassed as evidenced by the
way the main social function of the year, the Junior-Senior banquet, was
conducted. Everybody enjoyed thc occasion immensely and the rooms
were decorated in the most beautiful way.
So, with these accomplishments, we hope to be a greater credit to our
High School in our Senior year.

'We are thus assembled in the year ninetccn hundred and twenty-six,
an energetic and certainly ai poppy bunch.
VVC have taken part in more athletics this year than wc did last,
and this was not in vain. for the Sophomore girls won the Chaxnpionship
4-np for the inter-class basket ball gaines. It must also be rvinmnlnfrerl
that one of the stars of the "sturdy eleven" belonged to our class of '2S.
The class party was held on Friday evening, March 5, and was dc-
clared a "wow" by all those present. '
W'e sincerely hope that the majority of Soplionmres, as Juniors next
year, will retain all and obtain more of that famous thing culled "pcp."

The fall of '25 saw the student body of F. G. Hi augmented by the
appearance of eighty-ninc dauntless Freshmen. Of this number many
came from outside the local district.
Initiation was carried out with the usual pep, the vigilance committee
varying in some respects the long practiced initiation of previous years.
On Friday evening, September 18, the annual reception was held, the
seniors proving themselves genial hosts and capable chefs.
' All sports have proved attractive to both boys and girlsg many are go-
ing out for athletic practice and among them several especially able girls
--which promises well for future years.
The Frcslillren contributed an unusual number of very fine warblers
for the Opcretta, "The China Shop."
Miss Robinson, as class advisor, has helped much in the suggestions
she has given us.

The Hicks' Club is composed of high school students who have agri-
culture as a major subject. Through this organization they work toward
an ideal relationship between country and city students. The students of
this department number practically all the student leaders of the school.
They are attempting to break down the prejudice that has existed in the
past towards agriculture in general. Agriculture is the most ancient and
honorable of callings, and it is with this thought that we have organized.
The year was started with our annual pilgrimage to the State Fair,
where the students spent two days in sudying the various exhibits. As a
community service they have been conducting extensive milk testing work
during the year. This has been supplemented by field service in prun-
ningg and grafting of fruit trees.
The stock-judging team, composed of Clifford Duncan, Francis
Yoder, and Avis Crosley, made a very creditable showing at the annual
Pacific Coast Championship judging contest held in connection with the
Pacific International Livestock' Exposition in Portland.
Clifford Duncan won the medal for high point man in the judging
of draft horses.

The Girl Reserve Club with its slogan, "To find and give the best,"
has accomplished a creditable amount of Work. The club sent represen-
tatives to conferences held at Seabeck and Astoria While a number of
others enjoyed the privilege of going to Rock Creek Camp during the
summer vacation. The money to defray the expenses of conference dele-
gates was raised by holding candy sales at games and at school. Meet-
ings are held every Thursday during the school year and the club extends
an invitation to all girls interested to join in the meetings.
The organization was formed to promote a spirit of friendliness and
companionship among all girls in school. The club stands for good times,
service, and character building.

The Tennis Club, a popular organization in the school, is organized
each spring. A
Any person who wishes to join may do so by paying his dues. This
money is used to defray the expenses of the court. All tennis tournaments
or matched games are taken care of by the tennis club. Since there has
been very little in the way of girls' athletics this year, it is hoped that
there will he an inter-school tournament this spring.

Alice Redetzke, Edith Hansen, Lysle Paterson, and William Mc-
Cready, with Doris Bailey as alternate, composed this year's debate teams.
Forest Grove participated in a triangle debate between Forest Grove,
McMinnville, and Newberg. The affirmative teani, composed of Edith
Hansn, first speaker, and Lysle Paterson, second speaker, met Newberg
here. This debate resulted in a 3-0 decision in favor of Forest Grove.
The negative team, Vifilliam Mc-C1-eady, first speaker, and Alice
Redetzke, second speaker, went to McMinnville and lost by :1 340 decision.
McMinnville won a 2-1 decision at Newherg.
The points in the triangle were: McMinnville, 55 Forest Grove, S3
Newherg, 1. ' "
Although tl1e teams could participate in only one debate, they did
very good work. -

The Junior class presented the play, "Mr, Bob" at Marsh Hall, on
the evening of November 4.
It was a comedy in two acts, and centered around the mistaken iden-
tity of Mr. Bob. Marion, who is sometimes called Bob, comes to visit her
churn, Catherine Rogers. To tease her cousin, Phillip Rolscal, Catherine
lets him believe that "Bob" is a man. Thus it is that Mr. Brown, an in-
nocent lawyer, who has come down to see Catherine's Aunt Becky, is mis-
taken for Mr. Bob. The plot also contains a yacht race, and a plan for a
home for destitute cats, which further complicate matters. However, it
all comes out all right, and "Mr, Bob" and Phillip fall in loveand pre-
sumably live happily ever after.

CARL ANDERSON . Fulllmrk
Andy is a powerful defense man, a batter-
ing ram when hitting the line, and one of the
most dependable men on thc squad. VVhcn-
ever a touchdown was absolutely necessary it
was Anderson who usually took the ball over.
He. has played his last year for F. G., much
to the regret of all. ,
DEAN MISKIIX-llXllNS . . . Guard
.Xt guard position, llcan was the mainstay
of the line. Although light in weight, no op-
posing line was ever able to -stop' his plunging

VERLE HINES ...... End
Bud played his first year for F. G. in a
way which showed not only the team spirit but
a fighting spirit of his own. Although new at
the game, he developed into such a sure tackler
and blocker that no plays were consistently
directed around his ends. VVC feel much safer

The prospects for a winning team at the first of the year looked bad.
Several of our lettermen were not to be in school until mid-season and
there were only about 20 111en who had turned out for football. Then, to
cap the climax, Coach Devlin was confined to his bed for the first three
weeks of the season.
Nevertheless, the fellows who were out showed the true team spirit
and never was there a harder working bunch of fellows than this bunch
who drilled under the leadership of Capt Jones, and Mr. Lafky, who
kindly consented to devote his time to the welfare of the team.
In due time Coach Devlin arrived on the scene and things began to
progress rapidly. "Larry,' has played the game for nine seasons and he
taught us a brand of football which is not usually taught in high schools.
His war cry is "eleven men on every play," and it was this cry along' with
a true fighting spirit that brought us through the second undefeated season
in the three years which "Larry" has coached in this school. I
ST. HELENS 0 October 6 FOREST GROVE '7
lrVc met entirely new rivals and as reputed they were rivals sufficient
to try the metal of any team. As for the reputation of the two teams,
they were equal but we were outweighed about ten pounds per man and as
this heavy eleven came on the field, the hearts of the F. G. rooters sank
dismally. The opening events didn't help much. However, after a fur-
ious battle F. G. scored in the second quarter. From then on everything
in the catagory of high school football was used without avail. The game
ended 7-0. '
VERNONIA 0 October 10 FOREST GROVE 25
For the first time Forest Grove and Vernonia met upon tl1e gridiron.
Vernonia was, according' to reputation, a fast, strong eleven and as they
trotted onto the field they were a classy looking bunch indeed. In wcigllt,
we were fairly well matched, but the game had progressed less than ten
minutes when F. VG. made a touchdown. Again in the third quarter, an-
other touehdown was made and before the final whistle, four touchdowns
and one try for point were to our credit and the teams parted feeling that
each had met a good, clean rival.
AMITY O October 23 FOREST GROVE 418
Our first game out of town was played with Amity, a team with which
we were not acquainted, but when this team came on the field, we all
gasped, for our high school opponent resembled a college team more than

CLIFFORD DUNCAN . . . Tackle
Dunk played his last year of football for
F. G. with credit at all tinics, llc was one of
the surest tacklers on the squad and a stone
wall on defense. Also in the last game of the
season he saved the day hy continuing his
hubby of blocking punts.
DAN MORAN Q11urfv1'bark. Capt. EIN!
As a field general, Danny demonstrated his
ability at dirccling thc team. llcyond all doubt,
lie is a very accurate passer, a fast broken
field runner, and as safety man, he is second
to none. llc was one of thc two men chosen
on the all-star team for this district. Ile has
two more years to go.
THOMAS HUSON .... Guard
Tom was a new man in school, and immediately
upon arriving at I". G. he procccdcd tn show
his school spirit by making the football team.
llis ability rested on main strength, awkward-
ness, and a lot of fight. He proved himself
a valuable substitute and was able to make his
letter. llc has two more years al F. G. and
much is expected of him.
ALBIERT DUYCK ...... End
llc was about the lightest player un the
squad, but by skillful playing and hard fighting
he was able to retain his position through every
game. He is a good pass receiver and a fast
broken field runner. He will bc with us an-
LOUIS HACKETT .... Guard
Louis played his last year fur F. G. in a
manner which helped a great deal in giving us
a 1925 undefeated team. As a running mate
with Miskimmins, he played a consistent game,
always opening holes and covering punts.

The starter's whistle blew, and showing what a fast, snappy team
can do to a much heavier opponent, we ran up a score of -148 to 0. The
game was fast and furious as most of our plays were called and complet-
vd before our opponents were on the line of scrimmage.
MCMINNVILLE 0 October 30 FOREST GROVE 7
Playing a clean-cut game of football the maroon and gold trimmed
our rivals from Yamhill county to the tune of 7-0. Mac was reputed to
have the best team in years and in tl1e first quarter they proved rather
dangerous but F, G scored in the second quarter and although we were
unable to score again, Mac was completely at our mercy and never
throughout the game did they recover enough to threaten our security.
TILLAMOOK 6 November 6 FOREST GROVE 6
After our hard earned victory over Mac., the boys took a week of
steady practice in preparation for the game with the cheese eaters.
Tillamook came down with the idea of playing the first team for the
first quarter and then letting us amuse the second team As a result the
game started with a bang, Tillamook scoring in the first few minutes.
This was enough to bring the maroon and gold to true fighting form and
for the rest of the game the cheesers' second team sat dismally on the
bench and watched her men being completely overwhelmed by the light
F G. bunch.
NEYVBERG 0 November 11 FOREST GROVE 0
As expected, this was one of the hardest games of the season. New-
berg started practice early and by mid-season had gained a reputation
surpassed by none. They had material and weight to spare but they
lacked one attribute which a winning team must have and this attribute,
"true fighting spirit," was brought into prominence when they met F. G.
The game was conested furiously--speed against weight in a sea of
mud and a downpour of rain, and ended in a tie.
INDEPENDENCE 0 November 19 FOREST GROVE 15
Again we took a southern trip against new rivals if that is what they
could be termed. For years F. G. has played football in its own circuit
and as a rule good sportsmanship has been upheld to a large extent by all,
but from this team we learned something new about athletics.
The game started with a bang and in less than five minutes F. G. had
scored a touchback, a touchdown, and the disagreement arose over the de-

LEON WALKER . . . Halfbuvle
Again we lose zl valuable mam. Forward
passes are llink's specialty. Time after time
he has hooked the hall from unbelievable
heights and converted what seemed to be Ii
defeat into a victory. As zi consistent ground
gainer, he will be missed in next years lineup.
RAYMISKIMMINS . . . Ilulflnwlt'
llecause of his scanty weight, Ray warmed
the bench the first part of the season, but
owing to the injuries of Knox, he received a
chance to show his stuff and it was noticed
that when he tucked the ball under his arm,
yardage was sure to be made. Also, when Ray
tackled a man he stopped him. He has an-
other year with us,
GUY H IGBY ....... Ceutvr'
Fat was the spirit of the team. Although
lighter than some of his opponents, he is rec-
ognized by the true worth of his perforniances.
His passing leaves little to be desired and at
talking it up he is unequaled. I'1c still has
another year at lf. G.

cision of the umpire. As a result Forest Grove was credited with a score
of only 15 points.
HILLSBOR0 6 November 23 FOREST GROVE G
A perfect season was brought to a close when on Thanksgiving morn-
ing, the maroon and gold held their much heavier rivals under the blue and
white, to a 6-6 score.
Hill Hi came down full of pep and expecting an easy victory and
when they saw the slippery, wet field, their confidence increased as their
superior weight gave them a decided advantage on a wet field. This was
the kind of a game which can be played only between schools which have
bitter rivalry as we two have. Nevertheless, clean, hard football was
played on both sides. Hill Hi scored early in the game and from then on
till the end such a gridiron battle as never has been seen before on P. U.
field was witnessed. Things seemed about even until in the beginning of
the third quarter when F. G. started a line-smashing drive down the field
and was not checked until the Hill Hi bunch, with their backs against
their own goal, attempted to kick. This was blocked and the ball was
fallen on over the goal line.
Our try for point failed when the mud plastered ball hit the goal bar.
A victory so near and yet so far!
ALUMNI 0 December 9 FOREST GRCVE 0
This post-season game was played more to renew old times than any-
thing else and the old Grads turned out in large numbers to once more don
football togs and bring back memories of the past games played for old F.
G. H. S.
Regardless of circumstances, the unexpected can always happen and
it did in the battle put up by the Alumni against younger antagonists.

CLIFFORD DUNCAN . . . Cz'nfa'r
Dunk played his first and last year for F. G.
with the same fighting idpirit which he h 5
always shown in football.. Ile was equally
skillful on offense and defense, so his absence
will be vitally felt next year.

Here we lose a good man. For the first
year, Andy made the first string and then
was unfortunate enough to graduate at the

player, he was sorely missed from the lineup.

VVith three lettermen back, Coach Devlin opened the season by play-
ing Banks and Gaston. F. G. succeeded in annexing both of these games,
thus laying the foundation for a successful seasong but very little did we
know what the future events had in store for us.
Immediately following these two games came the mid-term exams.
and this cost us the services of Knox and Anderson, two valuable guards,
who finished their high school course at this time. During the next two
contests Moran, one of the remaining lettermen, contracted blood poison
from injuries received on the floor and tlms was kept out of athletics for
the remaining part of the season. Also, Finegan, the one remaining for-
ward, was removed temporarily from the squad because of an injured
Forest Grove did not win a conference game during the entire season.
The entire second semester was played with about eight men in suits, all
of them green at the game but continually striving to uphold the athletic
traditions of old F. G.
Although tl1e season was not one of victories, a great amount of valu-
able training was received by all, and with practically the same bunch re-
turning next year we hope to put out a winning team and once more put
basket ball on a par with other athletic activities.
The returning lettermen are: Dan Moran, Lysle Paterson, John
Schwendeman, Ray Miskimins, Hollis Jones, Albert Duyck.

There has been no girls' basket ball because of the lack of a coachg
however, there were a few weeks of practice, and there was a recognized
girls' basket ball squad.
The girls worked hard and it is probable that if they had had the op-
portunity they could have won many victories for old F. G.

VVith only a few lettermen back, Coach Devlin began baseball prac-
tice confident that the team would give a good account of itself.
About twenty men turned out at the beginning of the season, and hard
practice has been carried on every night.
A number of ganies have been scheduled. and, as there is more avail-
able material for baseball than any other branch of athletics, we hope to
have a successful season.

Unfortunately, this edition must go to press before the Forest Grove
truck squad has been entered in any meets. Nevertheless, they are work-
ing' hard and deserve honorable mention.
The VVashington County Track Meet is the big event of the year and
next in importance is the Northwest Track Meet staged yearly at Pacific
University. VVith only one lettermun back, the track squad is pruetic-ing
hard and hopes of winning honor for this department of athletics.
For years Forest Grove has held the cup -for winning the county
meet, but last year it was won by Hillsboro. Now, only passing events
.can show who is to hold this trophy.

The styles of yesterday and today
Are different in every sort of way.
They differ here and differ there
And differ in everything we wear.
Our grandmothers were very refined,
VVith hair piled high and hustles behind.
One yard was required to make a sleeve,
And that nowadays we cannot believe.
Their skirts were very long, indeed,
And that, in these days, we don't need.
They were also hooped, round as a eupg
If stepped on in front, the back flew up.
From year to year the styles did c-hangeg
They now have reached their widest range,
And the last thing from gay Paree
Is a gown one inch above the knee.
But styles may come and styles may gog
They may come from Paris, even Hillsboro.
I care not what they wear or lack-
Just so I've enough to cover my back.
