THE P10 EER VOTJLFME II. T IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIITIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVIIHIHIHTIITIIIIIIIIIIIIIII PUBLISHED BY THE ASSOCIATED STUDENT BODY IllllIilllIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII CHOUTEAU COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL FORT BENTON, MONTANA 'FOREWORD in the year 1846, Major Alexander Culbertson and a group of fearless traders pushed up the Missouri River and founded what is now known as Fort Benton. This historical old Fort has long since tumbled into ruins: and few, very few, remain to tell us of the trials and difficulties of those early days. In sharp contrast with the decline of this pioneer life has been the rapid and steady advancement of a new generation. This new generation not having to contend with the many hardships of pioneer life has been able to devote a great deal more time to educational affairs. The people of Fort Benton and vicinity were not slow to realize the value of higher education and as early as the year 1901 a high school was established with an enrollment of five students: Vernon E. Lewis, John Culbertson, Charles Morrow, Charles King, and George Crane. The building was small and only one course was offered. Today, Chouteau County High School has an enrollment of one hundred students and is accredited by the State, North Central and Northwestern accrediting associations. The building has also been enlarged and four full four-year courses are offered with special training in domestic science, manual training, normal training, and commercial work. That this second volume of the "Pioneer" may, in a sense, serve to reilect the spirit and progress of Chouteau County High School is the sincere wish of the publishers. , THE EDITOR.

H. MADISOIN 7 Y ' Y 1 GREETINGS F. H. MADISON We are entering upon a period in the history of Cnouteau County High School when all the virtues of the pioneer will be needed. With the smaller faculty necessitated by these hard times and the conse- quent decrease in the subjects and courses offered will' return many of the problems encountered in the earlier stages of development of an institution. These will be the harder to' meet because of the more prosperous times we have enjoyed. However, just asrprivations in the life 'of an individual are fre- quently blessings in disguise, so may it be with usvas a school. The fundamental and essential things in education will remain and per- haps receive greater stress because of the ternporaryw laying aside of other work which however desirable is less valuable. The spiritl ual values of education such as friendships made, habits formed, and ideals impressed are of equal importance with knowledge acquir- ed and are of more value.than the equipment of the school and thc richness and variety of selection of subjects. These will remain with us together with all the traditions of the school which are such a vital part of its influence. In all essentialthings, Chouteau County High School will, we know, retain its high 'standing' of the past. Surely our loyalty to this school, our pride in its past and our faith in its future will carry us through this period of storm and stress. OUR FACULTY Nine Deppy good teacher folks have we-- Nine members on the list of the facultyg We've enjoyed every minute of their stay, And we're hoping they'll all return some day. To visit us again many won't be there, Because some will have had all his share Of' the life that is given by Chouteau High- But we'll all remember it 'till we die. First our Prof., a mighty man is he, We don't know where his home can beg 'Spose it's just where he hangs his hat, And we hope it's here he does do that. He's teacher of English and Latin, too, But that isn't all the things he can dog He's accomplished in many things, it seems, From music down to using willow beams. Miss Hansen, a teacher of physics and math, Well known to all by her charming laugh, She is also a star in the music line: And the jolliest one of the number nine. The teacher of shorthand is we' know The best to be had-she isn't slow. Oh no, Miss Jerald's not that kind of one- She's a treasure, indeed, and full of fun. Then Miss Skinner we can't forget, She's the teacher of English, and you bet We learn a heap from one like her. She nags us on with boot and spur. Ah, and another is the good cook And seamstressg really, take a look And you'll Hnd in a minute one Miss Penn, And you've really looked at something then. Miss Catlin belongs to all of the bunch, She's here to give the girls a hunch Of how to teach and draw and paint, And build a lot of things queer and quaint. Then Mr. Grycmacker, the teacher of French And Spanish, and History of the trench Of warfare that is in the olden days- He's an important one in many Ways. Mr. Johnson, too, is one of the nine, About 6 ft. 3, and as straight as a pine. He explains all about HZSO4 And Civics and also the Civil War. And last, but not least, is Ashcraft- The coach no bigger than a draft Of wind, but oh, how much he counts. One holler, and the boys just bounce. if 'W-J E Q 71715-c.S -25'-g '3-31+ 3223!

So shall our history be divided into four distinct periodsg each period separated by an interval of three months which shall be designated as a "Period of Recuperationj' in which every one is given ample oppor- tunity to recover from the effects of the previous school year. Period I. ENTERING A NEW WORLD In the year 1918 A. D., thirty-one Pilgrims journeyed from the old graded school life to a new world for the purpose of greater educational development. Various colonies were set up in the first two rows of seats in the what their seemed, vast assembly room and for three weeks struggled for existence and recogni- tiong but by and by the colonies became settled and the savages of the upper classes: came to realize that they were permanent. After treaties of peace had been signed with the various chiefs of the upper classes, and they had shown their friendliness with entertainments the colonists: felt it their bounden duty to celebrate. The occasion of the' celebration held on George Washington's birthday was the election of Stanley Allen as head of the "Freshman Colonies," who was later to 'become the George Washington of his class. This party was a great success and showed well the splendid spirit of those brave people. A dinner given by the good women of the colonies to the high school board, followed by another and more successful spread for the returned soldiers opened the eyes of the high school in general and from that time on, there existed a state of competition for honors in social events. These events firmly established the L'Fres-h- man Colonistsn in high school society. THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR This period ended the latter part of May in a mighty revolt against examinaf tions in which the Colonists were victorious with the loss of' only a few of the courageous people. ' Then followed the tirst Period ot' Recuperation in which all struggling ceased and the following three month-s was one long holiday. Period II. AN ERA OF PROGRESS The "Freshman Colonies" were now known as the "Sophomore Union". Wliile this was a quiet period, much progress was made, in that the citizens of the Union became more truly a part of Chouteau County High School. Only one social event occurred during this timeg the class party, which maintained the high standards set up in the fir-st period. Enter George Washington, the President who was elected unanimously under the name of Stanley Allen, and who very soon proved to be the only man for the oilfice. Examinations in May concluded this period, reducing the population to twenty-three, nf P Period III. EXPANDING THE UNION This year the "Sophomore Union" was recognized as a Junior Class and repre- sentative-s were sent to take part in the .Athletic Conference which resulted in the choosing of Chester Tate, Owen Morris, Reuben Archer and Roy Tope as members of the football team. These venerable men proved themselves worthy contestants and received due praise from their less fortunate class mates. Owen Morris represented the Junior Class on the basketball team as sub. His successful playing in several games put him in line for the candidacy the following year. Track events found Walter Evers and Owen Morris distinguishing themselves among the numerous contestants. This Junior Class held no little degree of talent, four of its members taking leading parts in the very successful Operetta "Windmills of Holland." They were: Rose Tate, Stanley Allen, Chester Tate and Owen Morris. Political affairs in high school produced two debaters of recognized ability, Stanley Allen, and Sara Reynolds, our Iirst woman representative who worked zeal- ously for woman suffrage. The less serious side of life was presented at the Junior Class party which was one of the biggest successes of the social season, class talent furnishing diversion for the guests who did not dance. Junior representatives in Declamation were numerous, Owen Morris carrying off third place. The most highly commendable event of that year was the Junior Prom, declared by many to be one of the most successful ever given. This last event closed the third period with the Junior Class eagerly looking forward to the third Period of Recuperation. Period IV. A PERIOD OF ENLIGHTENMENT The dignified and stately Class now occupies tl1e last row of seats in the assembly, now considerably diminished in size in the eyes of the Seniorsg they enjoy the notoriety which is always given those of exalted position and look on with tolerant smiles as the lower class-men talk in awed tones of "th-ose Seniors." . ' The same representatives as in the previous year took part in football and basket- ball proving themselves worthy of their positions. The Seniors characterized their party with their principles of progress by making it a progressive table party, a different game being provided for each table and the holder of the highest number of points receiving a. box of candy. The party being given during the Xmas season, a beautifully decorated tree occupied the center of the room and at the conclusion of the games bags of candy and popcorn were distributed to the guests. Later a delicious lunch was served to which all present did justice. Every one enjoyed it to the utmost due to the fact that the Seniors always lead in the production of things unique. The debating team was composed entirely of Seniors, the members being Stanley Allen, Sara. Reynolds, and Reuben Archer. - 'Since Xmas, things have been very quiet with the exception of the production of the Operetta, "The Magic Wheel," in which the Seniors were well represented by Rose Tate, Chester Tate, Stanley Allen, Owen Morris, and Hilda Evers in leading parts. The production of this operetta gained for them recognition as star performers of the stage. From this time until the conclusion of this period, the Seniors will be so pre- occupied with the class play, preparations for commencement and other duties that all are. warned to keep their distance lest they be lost in the rush. The next period will find these brave people widely scattered, some far, and some near, but all working with the same spirit of joy and energy toward success in their chosen professions. - Helen Patterson '22. s seg-- . sisi is f - QL QI' E50 SENIOR CLASS PROP!-IECY It was in the middle of the month of May-and what is more beautiful than a May-day in Washington, D. C. I had been in business for two years and had prospered as the owner of an exclusive shop for young ladies. One fine morning, two very smartly dressed young ladies walked into my shop. As chance had it, I was not occupied at the time so I asked the young ladies what I could do for them. Imagine my surprise when the iirst spoke, it was Rose Tate-. I was overjoyed to see her and although I had corres- ponded with several of my classmates I had no definite information as to her where- abouts other than that she was attending college in the East. After meeting her friend, a young girl from New York, we forgo-t the shopping and I took them in a room where we settled down for a good old chat. "First I want you to tell me about yourself, Rose," I said. "Well," she began, "I went to Montana University for two years and I am just finishing my senior year at National Park Seminary in Washington. I would never have seen you at all had I not been doing my shopping for graduation here. I think I shall go right home after Commencement for I'm just dying to see mother and dad. I doubt if I shall see Chet unless he comes home for a vacation. He is a forester in North Dakota. He hopes to win the credit for starting the first forest thereg could you imagine that?" "ls he married?" "Not yetg in his last letter he told me that he and Natalie had another quarrel and of course he always says, "This one is final." Of course you know just how they are with their quarrelsf' During the time Rose was telling me about Chet I could hear the familiar voice of my head buyer just outside the door. I called him in, and of course he needed no introduction to Rose, for she just stared at him for a minute and then burst out with, "Owen, how did you ever get so far away from home? Mary, why didn't you tell me that he was here?" After Owen recovered from the shock, he answered, "I've been here ever since Mary opened up the shop, been to Paris and New York, but I'll soon get down to the old home folks again for Mary is going to give me a six months vacation soon and you can just bet that I'm going for a visit to Missoula and Pleasant Valley!" 1 I told him that we had been discussing our classmates and he asked, "Did you tell her about Veronica?" "Oh yes, Rose, Veronica is married to a man in Reno, who she says is doing well as an undertaken" Rose laughed, "Well, I can give you some better information than that. Sara graduates from Berkeley this spring and is sailing right after Commencement for Honolulu to be married to the owner of a large hotel, who is no other than Roy Tope. Alice Overtield is living near Highwood. She is married to John Flagler and has become a regular farmer's wife. I hear from her often and she seems very much interested in the "cows and chickens." She told me in her last letter that Stanley had just returned from Spain with his bride who cannot speak a word of English. Just imagine that poor girl living in Benton!" "Oh, she'll learn if she stays around Benton very long," broke in Owen. "Where's Pudd, you certainly hear from her, Rose " "Helen is teaching Chemistry in a co-ed school in Philadelphia, and advocates re- citations directly from books. Have you heard about Ruby and Reuben being married? I wouldn't believe it at first, but Doris Griesbach wrote me that they made a big stake ?C1I1wss nf in the oil game in Oklahoma and about six months ago they returned to Great Falls where they bought out Strain Brother's store." "What's Doris doing," I asked. She and Bessie Swena are superintendent and principal respectively of the Loma schools. Someone wrote me that Anna Hagen was also teaching school, but that was too much for me to believe, so I wrote to her and found out for sure that she is married to Arnold and living in California, where Arnold owns a chain of garages." By this time, it was eleven-thirty so I invited the girls to lunch with me, because we hadn't talked over half of the class of 1922. We lunched at a tea room. They were having a feature with their usual noon concert. Our table was near t pit. When the feature came on, Rose and I gasped. Hildia Evers was the director of a troupe of six pretty chorus girls. Their entertainment was very clever. After the lperformance, Rose sent her a. note by the waiter asking her to join us. She had lunch- ed but she chatted a while. She asked us if we had seen the Orpheum that Week. We hadn't. "Well, by all means go," she said, "Because Puny and Walter are headliners in an athletic act." Right away Rose, her friend and I decided to go to the matinee. he orchestra "Have you seen Stella Miley or Miriam since you've been here? Stella is head sales lady in the suit department in Altman's in New York and is spending her vacation here. Miriam is lecturing all over this part of the country on 'Women's Rightsf " During this conversation, Rose's friend .sat by, seemingly enjoying the animated gossip. When the question arose "VVhat happened to Florence Stevens," she jumped from her chair and exclaimed, "Why I know her. Is she short and thin?" "How do you know her?" almost screeched Rose, and in the same breath, "I haven't heard from her since I left Benton." "Well, when I was going through Glacier Park last year, I met with an almost fatal accident. I fell from my horse injuring my spine and the treatment of a chiroe practor was all that could save me from lifelong invalidism. This little Dr. Stevens restored me to the strong healthy girl I am today. She had a devoted friend whom you girls must know, for he was from her home town, I believe his name was Edward Johnston. He was acting as guide in the Park at that time." "The world isn't so large after all," said Owen. "That is what I said to Mary Shaw when I met her in New York last week. She was sailing for France to buy organdie for a firm in St. Louis. "Oh that reminds me, I was going to buy myself an organdie dress for graduation, but it is nearly six nowg so I will drop in tomorrow," said Rose. Q MARY CONNOLLY. OWEN MORRIS.

V as green as any Freshmen had ever been, and, too, we 'might 'sayg They were as wise. We were all quite good sized, that is in height, and the upper .classmen foundus rather hard to hold when they tried to brand us by cutting a lock of hair from lour heads. ' Early in the year a party was given by one of the upper classes and it was there that we showed what ability we had by pulling off the best charade and winning a prize of two dollars. In athletics also we played a great part, the basketball team being made up of Billy Murray, Walter Morger, Merlin McLeish, Ralph Uhl, Boots Bjerringeand Jess Schoonover, all Freshmen. As foolish Sophomores we came back to play a.great part in the high school. activities. K A Our class was well represented in the orchestra that was organized in the fore part QI the year by Miss E. Chapman. Of the ten members of the orchestra fivebe- longed to the Sophomore class: Basham Overfield, Merlin McLeish, Arthur Johnson, Glenn Stellmon and Harriet Louther, and too, the Girls Glee Club had a number of representatives from the Sophomore class: Christine Olson, Florence Isham, Lourena Schoonover, Harriet Louther, Henrietta Nagengast and,Stella Miley. In football our boys made a good showing in this year and seven of the Iifteen members of the teams were Sophomores: John Harris, Billy Murray, Leland Howder, Arthur Johnson, Ralph Uhl, Merlin McLeish and Jess Schoonover. Four of the six black and gold suits that were issued to the basket ball.team were given to John Harris, Walter Morger, Billy Murray and Jess Schoonover, Sopho- mores. We are proud to say that it was in this year that the champion cups were received. Our party given our Sophomore year was a great success.

In the Belt- Fort Benton track meet 109 points were scored, 86 of these being won by Fort Benton and 60 by Ralph Uhl, Billy Murray, John Harris, Merlin McLeish, Walter Morger and Jess Schoonover, Sophomores. Of the three men sent to Missoula Track Meet, two were Sophomores: Ralph Uhl and Walter Morger. iWe are very proud of Jeff's skill in throwing the javelin and th-ough Ralph did not place we are sure that he had the ability. Then the year of 1921 we came back as lovesick Juniors. Some were so much so, that they failed to keep on going to Chouteau High. Our boys John Harris, Billy Murray, Jess Schoonover, Walter Morger and Merlin McLeish made up the basketball team this year and did excellent work. Although they did not win the prize cups we feel that there is one more year in which to work hard. The orchestra of this year was well represented with Juniors: Basham Overfleld, Merlin McLeish and Harriet Louther. The Juniors have prominent places in the Girl's Glee Club too, most of our girls being members. We are planning to make the Junior Prom the best affair that we have ever at- tempted and if the best we know it will be marvelous. We have enjoyed the years of our high school life so far and as we come back next year to be dignified Seniors we will do our best to carry on the good words of our motto "Ever Onward."

CLASS HISTORY We, the Sophomores of 1922, reached the long sighted goal September, 1920, and entered with blissful ignorance into the life of green little freshies. We were no greener than the ordinary freshmen, and as we didn't claim to be record breakers we followed the green though well worn path, trod by many a care-free, happy freshie before. For a while we were very much confused by the ringing "and clanging of bells and were often found wandering aimlessly up and down the hall uncertain whereito go. As soon as we got settled we called a class meeting, just to show the lordly Seniors we weren't quite so green after all, and chose our officers as follows: Everett Day, president, Kenneth Pettit, vice-president, Serene Ward, secretary: and Barton Murray, treasurer. Our class colors were maroon and light blue, our class flowers the' red carnations and our class motto "Work and Win." We have tried to live lip to the very last letter of it too. s ' '- These were the members of our class: Benton Wilford, Lola Burchettf Elmer Charters, Lorrin Clark, Lucille' Clark, Florence Coughlin, Herbert, Cooper, Martha Cowan, Laurence Craig, Everett Day, Frances Deck, Anna Hagen, Helen Holmes, John Joyce, Jeannette LaBarre, Helen Leacher, Ruth Lee, Ellen Markley, Raymond Markley, Earl Montgomery, Barton Murray, Mary Patterson, 'Cecile Pelley,LBlanche Cooper, Kenneth Pettit, June Quarles, Edward Reichelt, Violet Scott, Katherine Semenza, Mabel Shepherd, Jesse Stellmon, Harold Stranahan, Goldie Strickland, and Ella Thissell. Three of our members dropped out before the'end of the term. ' .They were: Martha Cowan, Laurence Craig, and Elmer Charters. " ' In November, we gave' a successful dinner for the District board, under the supervision of Miss McCrum. Empty plates and smiling faces indicated that the dinner was enjoyed by everyone. I A , ' n ' ' The orchestra, organized by Miss E. Chapman l1ad the following Sophomores as members: Kenneth Pettit, drummer, Helen Leacher, pianist: and Everett Dav, saxaphonist. We felt very proud of these three musical members who could set the echoes ringing, with their playing, for had it not been for them the orchestra would have been an orchestra no more. ' A In athletics we also did our share. Ray Uhl and Everett Day were found to be solid material in football. Ray Uhl also played on the basketball team. 'In --the track team he and Lorrin Clark represented our class. Ray ran away 'with the 50 yard dash, the 100 yard dash, and the 220 yard dash, at the track meet held in Belt, and with several second prizes was entitled 'to wear the badge of highest individual point winner. At Missoula he won the name of the "fastest boy in school-in more ways than one."

In "The Wind- Katherine Semenza, Cecile Cooper, and Helen Leacher contest, Lola Burchett, who spoke a freshie. soon we saw the sun disappearing fall like hail stones 'till we were the storm and looked eagerly for- ward to the next year when we would be Sophomores and could lord it over the freshies, but some could not stand the sudden drop in temperature and were lost. This year we entered school with twenty-seven of the old class back and three new students: Vivian McGee, Violet Silver, and Charles Ramsey. These three, with the rest, help to keep things lively. Early in the year we called a class meeting and elected the following officers: Juno Quarles, presidentg Ray Uhl, vice-presidentg Kenneth Pettit, secretary-treasurer. Our class colors are maroon and light blue and our class flowers the red carnations of the first year. This year we had two representatives in basketball, Eddie Reichelt, and Ray Uhl. In football we had three representatives, Barton Murray, left tackle, Ray Uhl, half back: and Eddie Reichelt, substitute quarter back. Practice in track has just started and there are many Sophomores who bid fair to make a place. Miss Jerald organized a girls' basketball team which was hailed with delight by all the girls. Two girls were chosen from the Sophomore class: Ellen Markley, guard and E-lla Thisselle, forward. VVe didn't get to play any outside games this year but next year we hope to get some, then we'll make things snappy. After the basketball game with Lewistown on February 5, we gave the only social event of the year which we were entitled to give. The Lewistown boys were invited but were unable to come because of a game the following evening, but a small crowd of high school people were out. The fortune telling booth was well patronized and many a boy and girl left snickering at what the future had in store for him if he were pleased, or left frowning and indignant if he thought the Gods of pleasure were a little too harsh. Lunch was served and we're sure no one left with a cavity in his interior. In the Minstrel show put on at the Mission theater, Everett Day was a typical negro minstrelg Serene Ward was a belle of Broadway, and her voice tinkled like a silver bell, as she climbed the scales to high C and then gradually faded away. Now as our second year draws near its close we begin to hear a rumbling and mumbling overhead. The clouds have begun to gather and soon the storm will break out in all its fury, but we feel that as we lived through to tell the tale of our last year's joys and sorrows we surely can live through this coming siege, for the more you are tried the stronger you get. As we look into next year we see ourselves as dignified juniors and looking still farther into the future see ourselves being looked up to, by the freshies that are to come, as the lordly seniors, and, seeing this we are more determined to live up to our motto 'Work and Winf Ellen Markley '24.

CLASS HISTORY Every Freshman has born within him an awe of the Senior. We, the Freshman Class of 1922 on entering high school, had an immense awe for the'SeniorsVbut awe was soon lost in disillusionment. We made several excursions, spending hours search- ing everywhere, up stairs and down, even peeping through keyholes vainly endeavoring to catch a glimpse of the wise Seniors studying diligently or bearing themselves, with great dignityg in fact bearing themselves in any way we might safely imitateg' -but the immediate effect was extremely disappointing as well as discouraging. We have not yet recovered from the shock of learning that a Senior may do with impunity that which a Freshman does to his peril. Our class was continually torn by factions and internal disputes until, we de- termined to organize. At our first class meeting, we elected Glenn Allen as president: Leatha Pelley, vice-presidentg Durward Allen, secretary-treasurer, and Glenn Allen as class editor. The pink' rose was selected as our class flower,-purple and silver as our class colors, and "Green and Growing" as our motto. Wonderful events then occurred: events that filled the boasting Sophomores 'with envy. First came our initiation. Great preparations were made for this event. , A vague and indescribable feeling had crept over us. In a word, the long buried dread of the initiation was weighing upon us. We were subjected to severe trials. Truly the initation was all that we expected: stepping blind-folded around imaginary glasses of water, participating in a wedding and engaging in a prize fight, -making an "All Star" jazz band of ourselves, seeing Durward Allen try to teach our girls to play football, and listening to one of our own members make an oration. Too soon it endedg too soon we found ourselves once ,more in the street, almost exhausted, but thankful that we were still living and had not been given the usual hair-cut administered to Freshmen. Our ambitions, being now no longer restrained, broke out into a blaze. In athletics we were not laggardsg Durward Allen easily took the place of left guard on the first eleven, and Warren Johnson received Iirst place as substitute, while several of the boys showed marked ability on the gridiron. From among the girls, Margaret Muir and'Louise Curtis7he'ld" positions as guard and forward on the girls' team and Estelene 'Pettit .and Kathryn Reynolds, as regular subs. Y ' ' ' At the time this goes topress we have had no announcement as tothe selection of the track team, but from observation we are sure that the Freshman Class will carry home honors in this sport also. K I 'W Y my ,610 35' In the declaniatory contest, Olive Clearwater, and Kathryn Reynolds represented the CUSS, Kflthryn taking second placeg and we will offer them as a. gauge of our standard in this work. T119 majority of our class were represented in either the girls' or boys' glee club. Katherine Smith was our soloist in the operetta upon whom even the hopeful Juniors looked with envy. Others selected for the operetta were Esther Allen, Goldie Red- mond, Esther Smith, Margaret Muir, Glenn Allen, Durward Allen, .lay Allen, Philo Haynes, Paul Pistori, and Morris Stevens. Our members were very well represented in the Language Club entertainment given in January. ln the Spanish play, "The Double Robbery," two leading parts were taken by Kathryn Reynolds, and Louise Curtis. The following took part in the Latin play: Olive Clearwater, Holly Crawford, Helen Hartman, Philo Haynes, Mae Mc- Farland, Paul Pistori, and Esther Smith. VVe were also very well represented in the songs sung by the French class. The director of the Normal Training play selected Kathryn Reynolds, Ruby Maurer and Helen Hartman to help the girls of the Normal Training class in their play. Our class also showed marked ability in writing for the school paperg the papers of Glenn Allen and Morris Stevens being selected for publication. In the debating club, many Freshmen tried for honors with the upper classmen. Olive Clearwater, Louise Curtis, Estelene Pettit .nd Kathryn Reynolds won the ad- miration of their classmates by their ability, which promises much to a future de- bating team. The very nature of the class alone gives it distinction and importance. We are determined to press onward and upward, indulging in the hope of eventually becoming Seniors-Seniors that will feel the awful responsibility of bearing themselves with dignity, and of applying themselves with such diligence that the Freshman class may be proud to follow them.

OUR FOOTBALL RECORD Chouteau County High experienced its second year's work in football during the season of 1921. men and about twenty-tive, representing all classes reported for duty, making the pros- pects for a successful season very bright. All of last season's letter-men except Morris and Curtis, graduates of last year, were back and a large number of newure- cruits with ambitions to become future stars were out for practice and 'took part f in several games. Durward Allen, who is " ' ff taking up his first year's work in 'high ' ' school, came out and made goodias guard. - E.

' Splendid football tactics were played by Q 7 both teams but the Chouteau County eleven was too light to win over the much heavier Great Fallssquadand at the final whistle the score stood 96 to 6 in favor of Great Falls. Morgeruby a spectacular play scored our only touchdown as a result of a Great Falls fumble. I J Almost immediately after registration, Coach Ashcraft issued a call for football ' 5 I ' g , N-I, The loss of the Great Falls game, howeverymeant only an incentive to'better work. The spirit of "Old Chouteau'High" could not be dampened by the.loss of one game, while with the utmost co-operation of all members of the team and under-the direction of Mr. Ashcraft's expert coaching the Wildcats Amade their firstf, last.and only defeat and turned all the other games of the season into Chouteau victories. About two weeks after the game with Great Fallsfthe team had polished off all apparent weak points and our next game, the game with Teton, promised to be a close one. This was the first time these two teams had ever "tangled" and it was the best game on the home gridiron of the season. Score? 23 to 6 in our favor. We also out-classed Teton on their own grounds to the tune of 21 to 0. The games played with Big Sandy and Belt also 'proved .U easy ,victories for Chouteau County High, and with practically all of thisLseason's-stars, Johnson, Mc- Leish and Murray backlagain next season, we are looking forward to even a better showing next year.

OUR BASKETBALL RECORD Basketball, always a favorite with all members of Chouteau County High, struck a v gait during the season of 1921-22. The football season had been closed only a few weeks when every one turned ini eager attention to the coming season of basket ball. Coach Ashcraft reorganized last season's quintet by placing Jess Schoonover in the position of back guard and Merlin McLeish of running guard. The other members of last season's squad, Murray, Morger and Harris retained their same positions this yearg while Owen Morris helped the team out of many a tight place and played a strong game as substitute. cg it git iiql' QI' fy' Qc it a A game with Geraldine here December 23, gave the Wildcats the first chance to show their ability. It was evident that in Jess Schoonover the team possessed a 5 5 brilliant back guard, while Merlin Mc- Leish showed great promise as a "star" ' ' running guard.. His ability to take ad- ' ' I ' - vantage of the fouls committed by the op- ' ,f A posing team together with his excellent V 1 ' guarding won him a ,high place in the 'W 0 stand-ing of the team. Captain John Harris , played hisvusual 'goodQga1n1?at'J3i1ter"and tv 6 the -two veteran forwards, Walterl Morger -65 153. 1 and Billy Murray, had reached 'their usual stride that it seemed an impossibility for them not to connect with' the basket. The score of this game was 50 to 6 in the Wild- cats' favor. Harlem played here on December 29, -, and the two teams met in one of the most interesting games of the season. During the first period of the game Harlem was hot on the trail of the Wildcats and this period -ended with the Wildcats leading by only four points, 13 to 9. But with the beginning of the second period new life seemed to have sprung up in the Chouteau quintet and they broke away for 23 points to the six scored by Harlem, the resulting score being 36 to 15. . On January 6 Belt played here and was defeated by a 22 to 1 score, and the'per- formance was repeated in the return game played at Belt on February 3. The final score of this game was 33 to 13. 4 - ' At Cascade the Wildcats met their first defeat in one of the hardest battles of the season. The first half of the game ended with the Wildcats leading with a. 9 to 3 score, but the second half proved in Cascade's favor and they won the honor of a 16 to 17 victory. A Teton County High visited us on January 18, and played a hard but losing game. The Wildcats were again the victors with a 27 to 21 score. A second contest was played Teton on their home floor February 17. Teton held the Chouteau County players to a closer score throughout the entire game than in the game played here, but the unfailing shots of Morger and Murray again brought the Wildcats to victory. In this game the Wildcats outclassed .Teton 20 to 24. ' On January 21 the Wildcats invaded Lewistown and another victory was added to Chouteau County High's growing list. Morger annexed eight field goals and Merlin McLeish seven out of the eleven free throws and one field goal. The final score was 29 to 10. Lewistown played a return game on February 10. Their team had been re- organized and was thought much stronger than before. They meant to retaliate but the Wildcats again won out with a 31 to 9 score. A C Then came the biggest game of the season: on January 28 when Great Falls played here. The first period of the game proved in our favor and the Wildcats got away with a 5 to 3 score. But in the second period new men were added to the Great Falls squad allowing a clever substitution of positions and the Great Falls score began to run up. Shaw and Winner of the Great Falls quintet scored highest for the visito' each annexing three Held goals. The score was 17 to 12 in Great Falls' favor. Big Sandy battled hard to the end in a game played on the eve of February 7, the scoring of Morger, Murray and Harris put the Wildcats far in the lead and outclassed Big Sandy to the tune of 44 to 9. From March 1 to 3 the district tournament took place at Great Falls and although the Wildcats failed to place, still their record of the season would be an honor to any school and with nearly all members of this season's team backmagain .next year, iwell! here is a tip to other schoolsjz "Beware of the Wildcats!"

Those that reported for action were: Walter Morger, Merlin McLeish, Merlin Cohoon, Ralph Uhl, Ray Uhl, Lorrin Clark, Edward Reichelt, and Arthur Johnson. l , Early in the season Coach Ashcraft secured a meet with Great Falls for May 5th, X The Great Falls track meet did not conclude very favorably for C. C. H. S. .Our boys f. W were able to land only 35 to Great Falls' 90 points. - However, the Chouteau County High F - . representatives at the Falls did splendid work, and the following is an account of how they won their points: Walter Morger took first in the "Javelin Throw" with a record of 149 feet and 5 inches. Merlin, Cohoon tied for first in the "High Jump" V V - w e , with Livers of Great Falls. Both cleared - e the bar at 5 feet 2 inches.

Ray Uhl captured the first place in the 220 yard dash, his time was 261-5 seconds. He also took second in the 50 yard dash, second in the 100 yard run and third in the "Shot Put." Ralph Uhl placed third in the S80 yard run and third in the mile run. i m. g ' H ' I Qs, 7 So with knowledge of their good work in mind, even if far outclassed in .the number of points sooredg the C. C. H.

Merlin McLeish and Ray Uhl. At Missoula the Choutcau county men did good work although only one "brought home the bacongu NValter Merger, and he wears a keen gold medal for taking first place in the javelin throw, making a record of one hundredpiifty feet and ten inches. fp - . , .-mf.: z' 'S' il Nlfli XXXNXMI cg- 1" ' 'slid 7 - 1- -1- Y X , N R - -"-. .x x f--L-.,,, I I 1.

It was organized this year with the assistance of Miss Skinner and Mr. G-rycmacher. Its purpose is to stimulate greater interest in foreign languages. Several evening entertainments were given during the schoolterm. The club has put on five little plays. The plays: "El Doble Robo" in Spanish, and "Perseus et Adrcmeda" in Latin were given before Christmas. At the same entertainment the French class sang "La Marseillaisef' and other French songs, and gave short recitations in Frenchg and the Latin class sang "Gaudeamus Igiturf' ln May the Club gave a program which included "Los Tres Mendigos Ciegos" in Spanishg "A Doughboy in Paris" in French, and "An Interrupted Proposal" in English. The following are the names of those who have taken active part in the club work: Sara Reynolds Kathryn' Reynolds Violet Silver Helen Leacher Serene Ward Louise Curtis Blanche Cooper Helen Holmes Ella Thisselle Dorothy Dinwiddie Anna Hagen Owen Morris Margaret Muir Herbert Cooper Ellen Markley Ref: Sfurgill Merlin McLeish Warren Johnson Jess Schoonover Glenn Allen Walter Henneford Morris Stevens Edward Reichelt John Joyce Ray Uhl Ralph Shepherd lffurward Allen Dave Archer DECLAIVIATION Merlin Cohooni Paul Pistori Philo Haynes Kenneth Pettit Harold Stranahan Olive Clearwater Holly Crawford Esther Smith Ida Mae McFarland Helen Hartman For the last two years Dcclamation has held a prominent place in our school life. This is due to the remarkable ability and talent of those, who go in for it.- Those, wl1o entered in this year's contest, seemed unusually gifted and-.made it almost impossible to decide the one, who read best. Those winning places iri' the C. C. H. S. contests were: Katherine Semenza, who took firstg-Kathryn Reynolds, secondg and Dorothy Dinwiddie, third. Katherine went to Missoula but due more to poor luck Athaxranything elseffailed to place there. The other' contestants were: Owen Morris, Bessie Swena,v Mary Pattlersonj Violet Silver, Merlin McLeish, and Olive Clearwater: A ' ' ' .tt gi. s- .ti DEBATING SOCIETY Debate took a more prominent, if not a more important place, in our work this year than ever beforeg principally because of the large number who turned out for it. Those who came out were: Olive Clearwater, Louise Curtis, Dorothy Dinwiddie, Christine Olson, Kathryn Reynolds, Reuben Archer, Sara Reynolds and Stanley Allen. The increased interest is perhaps due also to the spirited Junior-Senior debate held the first of the year. Merlin McLeish, Dorothy Dinwiddie and Christine Olson, the Junior team, certainly showed pluck and determination. Reuben Archer, Sara Rey- nolds and Stanley Allen, Senior team, displayed the same characteristics in a more reserved manner. The debate raged long and fiercely ending in a victory for the Seniors. A Our inter-school debate with Big Sandy proved a disappointment to the C. C. H. S. debaters. But their well constructed arguments and clear, concise delivery were mentioned even by the judges. The school team consisted of Reuben Archer, Sara Reynolds and Stanley Allen. Mr. Madison was the coach. His capable work was greatly appreciated by all members of the team. As all this year's team were Seniors the next year's team must be made up of new members. However, if the same enthusiasm is shown next year, as was shown this year among our classmen, there will be plenty of competition for places on the team next year. GIRLS' GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club has been re-organized this year under the supervision of Miss Estelle Hansen, with a larger attendance than ever before, and has proven to be a suc- cessful organization. Most ofthe members took part in the operetta "The Magic NVheel" given March 17, which won the praise of every one present. The Glee Club will also furnish the music for Commencement. The present registration is: Louise Curtis, Olive Clearwater, Katherine Semenza, Jeanette LaBarre, Ruby Maurer, Helen Leacher, Miriam Fayler, Esther Smith,Estelene Pettit, Cecile Pelley, Goldie Redmond, Esther Allen, Hildia Evers, Ruby Pugh, Holly Crawford, Christine Olson, Mary Connolly, June Quarles, Ruth Lee, Ella, Thisselle, Romaine Henneford, Ida Mae McFarland, Kathryn Reynolds, Alta Saxbury, Sara Reynolds, Harriet Louther, Bessie Swena, Alice Overiield, Veronica Sullivan, Dorothy Dinwiddie, Rose Tate.

Heavily and sleepily, Jack Stanton came down the plush carpeted stairs, and into the oak-finished dining--room of his fraternity house. A half dozen other oc- cupants of the house were enjoying their breakfasts, when this belated member of their group lazily threw himself into an empty chair at one end of the table. "Well, how did it come out, old boy? Did our advice suit the situation?" "He looks as if he had been up late enough, anyway," added Tom. "Yes, tell us how she took it anyway. Did she get fussed?" was Clay's contribu- tion to the numerous remarks and questions addressed to Jack. "It isn't fair not to let us know how our suggestions worked out," threw in another. "Wake up, and give us the news." "I'll bet Jack was the one who was fussedg he's not used to her kind." This was from a red haired dude at the end of the table, and it was too much for the sleepy Jack. With a. sparkle of fire in his brown eyes, he began to eat. He did so as if to keep from an outburst of anger. "There's not another of her kind," he muttered fiercely. ' "Gee, Jack, what's her kind? You haven't told us," spoke up Harry Parker, the house wit. "You wouldn't understand if I did," slammed back Jack. "Do you mean that l'm dull or that you are?" questioned Harry. A u "None of you have any sense worth having," retorted Jack, more and more ir- ritated each moment. "You must have fallen out of bed this morning," joked Tom. "Something has disagreed with him," was the verdict given by Bill Jones. "Alone of her kind," murmured Frank, "but he hasn't told us anything." Jack was usually the gayest of the crowd but this morning he was decidedly glum. He hurriedly gulped down the remainder of his breakfast and as hurriedly dashed from the room. ' ' Jack Stanton was a member of the Public Speaking Class which was, during this week, preparing discussions to be given in class. The professor had assigned phases of the one large topic to members of the class by twos. Jack Stanton was to prepare his discussion with Elaine Wallace. He must make an appointment with her that very evening. - Elaine Wallace was a girl whom Jack knew only from hearing her name in the class roll-call. She had fluffy golden--brown hair and eyes of-deepest blue. In contrast to white skin and a real pink flush, heavy black eyelashes drooped over her beauti- ful eyes. Jack saw all of this when he stepped up to ask her at what hour she would be free to meet him to discuss the piece of class work. She smiled sweetly as she told him she would be free that evening. In her same 'quiet smiling way, she gave him the number of her boarding house. ' ' ' . As Jack walked toward his "frat" house at four doggock, he wondered how it could have happened that he had not noticed the pretty Miss Wallace. She was so quiet and reserved, so different from the girls he knew best. ' ' 41. 01. la. . H Ha H "Hello Jack, where are you coming from?" Jack looked up to see a pert little brunette walking toward him. "Why Dorothy, I didn't expect to have the pleasure of walking home with you." "Are you going to the dinner dance at the Club tonight?" u No, not going." "Why Jack Stanton, how can you be so cruel?" u No, really, Dot, I have an e-ngagement for business, not pleasure. I have to work tonight." "Isnit Lucille going to the Club party either then?" "I don't know, I haven't seen her lately. She doesn't love me any more." 'tHere I've brought you four blocks out of your way to walk home- with me," sud- denly rejoined Dorothy. "I'd walk miles for you!" 'Tm not so sure of that, but I wish you were coming to the party tonight, Jack." Jack assumed an expression of affected sadness. "You know it pains me to give up the pleasure of a waltz with you. Why must there be work to take the joy out of life?" Oh, let it go for tonight," begged Dorothy, a last bit of hope still lingering. No, it can't be done, but may I spend tomorrow evening with you?" Yes, if you would like to." u as as 14 Like! Why there's nothing I would love more." Flatterer!" scorned Dorothy. u in Tomorrow night then?" was Jack's final question. n Yes, if you'll promise something." "Anything you ask? n I'll tell you tomorrow night." Jack lifted his fashionable sailor from his lustrous coal black hair and started off down the block unconscious of the fact that Doro-thy's admiring eyes were following him that evening. Seriously and thoughtfully, Jack came downstairs and seated himself at the supper table with his fraternity brothers. "'Why so serious, Jack?" was the first question asked by one who always did a. good deal of talking. u I was thinking about this evening," was the questioned one's slow reply. "Why this evening?" "Well, fellows I've a proposition on hand that I don't know how to manage." "You in that fix? Oh! never," chirped Tom. "But you don't understand. I have to meet with a. girl." "How unusual," chimed in a half dozen voices. "Well you see it's like this," went on the perplexed youth, who proceeded to explain about the assigned lesson with "a girl whom I don't know at all." "But," asked Harry, "I don't see any problem about that." "This is good," laughed Bill Jones, who had been very thoughtful up to this time. "Just feature Jack Stanton, the champion heart breaker of the campus, not knowing how to put in time with a. girl." "It's easy enough to laugh, boys," went on Jack seriously, "but she isn't a dirt." "I thought you said you didn't know her," quizzed Tom. "I don't know her, but I know her type." "Oh! cut it Jack, girls are all alike in one respect." This from handsome Bill who put on an air of understanding when it came to the subject of women. "When you get through with this business just give her the line,-you know, and before you know it the evening will be gone." Bill was apparently interested in Jack's evening. "That sounds like good advice, try it," suggested Tom. QL QL! 35, Q iii '5 we jiviiiiiff "Maybe I'll do that" was the only reply to Tom's suggestion. At eight o'clock, Jack was ushered into the parlor of Elaine's boarding house and at one minute after eight he found himself watching the pretty Elaine trip down the stairs. She wore a dress of black velvet and a scarf of blueg deep like her eyes. Hex' quiet sense of humor was delightful. Jack was forced to think over and over again how beautiful she was. "Good night, Miss Wallace," said Jack as he stood near the door with hat in hand. "May I have the pleasure of another evening in the near future?" "Why yes," was the soft reply, "Possibly next month." It was then the first of May. "Not before then?" "No, Mr. Stanton, not before the first of June." "But you'll save me the night of the first of June?" "Yes, if possible, but it's a long way off." "I wish it were tomorrow. I'll be happy every hour looking forward to it." "And I hope that you Wouldn't be a iiatterer!" exclaimed the girl teasingly. "0h! Miss Wallace, please don't." An expression of pain fiitted over Jack's features. He had been a flatterer, but how changed it all was now. How could he prove to this girl of his dreams that he wanted no one but her? Elaine was amused. When she had told Bill Jones, her fiance, of her engagement for the evening with Stanton, he looked frightened. "I know Stanton. He lives over at the house." Upon reaching home, Elaine rushed into the room of one of her girl friends, who was dressing for a party. "Marge, I have something to ask you. Do you know Jack Stanton? When I told Bill about having to work with this Stanton man be became pale." Marge's laughter made the room ring. "Why Elaine Wallace, Jack Stanton is a regular flirt. It seems as if every girl that has met him is at his feet. No wonder Bill was pale. He had reason to tremble for his life." As Elaine stood saying "Good-night" to Jack Stanton on the evening of June first the "record flirt of the campus," she wished Marge could see him abashed and blushing before her. Jack Stanton was completely disgusted with himself, he had flirted his life away and now when he had met a real girl he had acted like a. know-nothing. He felt lowly and unworthy of one so high above him. Hence it was that he was so out of sorts at the breakfast table. After leisurely finishing his breakfast, Bill Jones Walked up stairs and into his room. He took a white envelope out of his desk and taking out the folded piece of paper, he walked into Jack's room. "Say, Stanton, I know one girl who isn't like all the restg thought you'd be interest- ed in this." ' Jack found himself reading an engraved card to a stag dinner announcing the engagement of "Elaine Marie Wallace to William Henry Jones." He gazed, unable to believe his eyes. "So that's the Elaine you've talked about, Bill. How did you know I'd be interested?" "She told me about having an appointment with you last evening. I told you to give her the "line," for if I didn't keep you oif the track I might have lost the one thing which makes life worth living for me. You'll come to the dinner, won't you?" "Shake hands, Bill, I wish you happiness." An expression of sadness came over Jack's face as he picked up the latest novel instead of his Psychology text and hurried to class. "What doth it profit a man," he mused, "if he captivate the whole feminine world and fail to Win the love of the 'one' girl." Mary Connolly. """f'?iiflQI' my' 3:50 'ijt' Ti' V Llch FOG It was a foggy night. Outside the great wall that divides the docks from the main thoroughfare of London, all was jostle and bustle. The dense fog that had settled down into the city made it dangerous and difficult to carry on traffic. The clanging of bells and the shrieking of exhaust whistles warned the people of slow-moving trucks. On the walks, and in the numerous pubs were throngs of people jostling against one another. A damp foggy atmosphere over all. Vile soundsg and an ill smell, Among this throng a thin pale face moved listlessly along, being jostled here and there, now it could be seen and now it was gone, just as a piece of drift-wood tossed on the angry sea. Back of the great river wall and in the shadow of the huge warehouse on pier I of King's docks lay the ship Eelbeck peacefully sleeping in its mooring lines. It seemed deserted except for a single being who sat at the gang plank blinking into the light of a lantern. All was silent as death save for the occasional groaning of the mooring lines and the murmur of the great metropolis outside the walls. Red, the seaman on duty, gave a sudden start. Had he seen the gang plank quiver? Yes, someone was ascending it, Supposing it to be one of the crew or maybe an officer, he arose quickly and made as if he were pacing the deck. He stopped and stared. What was it that tarried there midway on the gang-plank? Was it a. ghost? A thin whiter face, large dark orbits, snow white teeth set in sickly pale gums which the lips seemed not able to conceal, was dimly visible just beyond the circle of light thrown by the lantern. "Who's there!" sternly demanded Red, screwing up his face and viciously spitting over the rail. This was a habit of Red's, especially when he wished to appear real hard. "Please, mister, will you give me a bite to eat?" came the complaint from below, 'Tm starvingfi "No, you d--d wharf rat. Break away from that gang-plank or I'll put a hole through youf' angrily spat out Red. He was continually pestered by these pesky beggars with their hard luck stories. The pale face lingered for a moment at the edge of the light, the eyes closed, the lips contracted into a thin straight line, the whole form wavered slightly, then with a faint "Thank you, mister," it retreated into the fog. Red shivered, but not from the fog or the cold, for he was clad from tip to toe in oil skins. Something about that face seemed familiar, yet ghastly to him. He re- ilected in his mind an incident which had befallen him some six weeks previous to this night. On a Saturday night he had drawn out all of his wages that the skipper would allow him, meaning to send it home. Unfortunately some of the crew had a keg of rum aboard ship and before long the entire crew became quite boisterous. Red was in a joyous state of, mind when he started ashore and detecting no danger took his bank roll, which amounted to about forty pounds. He had become separated from the rest of the crew and remembered vaguely a dim smoky bar-roomg a treacherously beautiful girlg a man's face-a thin pale face with large dark eyes and snow-Awhite teeth-and a voice speaking to him as if in a dream, "God bless you mister. If you have a home, go back to it." That was all he remembered until next morning when he found himself aboard ship with a splitting headache, the butt of all jokesg but his bank roll was still secure within his pocket. Was this the same face? Without a doubt, it was and he had treated his deliverer thus. Red went to the rail and called down into the darknessg but no reply. He had gone. "He looked awfully ghastly, pale and weakg thought Red. Maybe he has fallen in the filthv .slime of the streets and perished in the fog." f Red g ew'-rest ess. He paced rapidly forward then aft along the deck. He stopped beforelthe' ght. He felt strange and lonely. He seized the lantern and dash- ed ,across the gang-L ank. "Duty or no duty," thought Red, "l've got to make it right with this fellow." H 'gig MTQTTZ. my ,mu q 0 . ,314 As Red hurried along the quay in the center of the blinking circle of light walled in by the dense fog, he would start at every object that would suddenly loom up before his eyes like a huge monster, though he well knew it had been there for days, and he would have passed it by unnoticed at any other time. Suddenly he heard a coughing close to him, and he started so violently that he almost dropped the lantern. Someone quite near him had been taken with a violent fit of coughing. The coughing continued, growing weaker, choking, gurgling, mumbling. The light from Red's lantern shone on a row of wine casks which had! been dis- charged from the ship's hold the day before. In the mud, and along these barrels, lay a shapeless bundle of rags and among these, the thin white face. Red flakes of froth sputtered from the mouth and nose as the lips moved convulsively. The steady a quick straightening of the meager frame beneath the rags, the head dropped down limply and the frail body lay quite still in the mire. unblinking eyes stared at Red vacantly as if looking through and beyond him. Witli Red felt dazed and his knees seemed to have failed him but he finally managed to get out to the gate and inform the Dickies that "a dead man had been found down there on the dock." Roy Tope, '22, PAINTING THE PORCI-I FURNITURE "Good-bye, father. Here are your hat and gloves, and don't forget to come around the back way at noon, for I am going to paint the porch furniture this morning," said Mary to her absent-minded father as he left home to attend his morning classes. "All right daughter, I won't forget. Good-bye," and he was gone. "Now for a full morning's work," thought Mary, as she hurried to the shed to get the paint and brushes. She went to work with a will and by half-past eleven, her task was accomplished. Then, remembering how absent-minded her father was, she found a board and putting an auto horn under it, she placed it on the front walkg then she pinned a sign which read "Fresh paint" on the back of a chair and placing it in a conspicuous place she went in to help her mother prepare luncheon. All went well and the cooking was progressing smoothly when they heard the front gate slam. "Mary! Mary! Run and warn your father away from the fresh paint!" said her mother. "No need of that, Mother," said Mary, "I fixed warning enough for him." Just then the auto horn was heard and they thought all was well when CAR-A-S-H! !! "Merciful Heavens!" cried Mrs. Anderson, "what fearful noise is that?" But she got no answer for Mary had flown to the rescue of her father. As she came through the hall she could see him walking towards the painted furniture with a puzzled expression in his eyes. "How very singular," he said, "an auto horn under a board," and drawing his paper from his pocket he sank blissfully into a chair to read it just as Mary appeared, breathless, in the doorway. "Oh, father! !" she exclaimed in a frightened tone. "Why, daughter, what is wrong?" he asked, rising in deep concern for her. But Mary, upon seeing him rise, had sunk upon the floor in a fi' of unco .trollable mirthg for her father, after all her careful warnings had chosen .f ie of the freshly painted chairs and was a ridiculous study in dull gray and bilioa: green. Serene Ward '24, 61.01.25 ,sf COURAGE TCD THE FRONT Skating is the king of winter sports and once learned is never to be forgotteng but the learning-therefs the rub. You push along through the light iiuffy snow with a. group of already accomplished skaters to view their ability. The merry group makes several turns around the lake and then by long grace- ful strokes draws up by your side, at the big bonfire. It seems that an extra pair of skates has been brought along and gay friends insist upon your wearing them and making a try, so after a great deal of coaxing and slight resistance you resolve to try to skate or break every bone in your body, thinking the latter more probable. The skates are adjusted and strapped ong there is a happy feeling which goes, to your head and you begin to believe skating is an easy thing after ail. But when you find yourself perched on two knife-like edges, your ankles wohbly, and your knees weak, you vainly grasp and grip the two most reliable people near you and they start you out across the pond. Then, just as you begin to get confidence in yourself, you discover that, as though by magic your friends' reliability has changed to deceit and you are alone entertaining a feeling much the same as the feelings of a stranger on the Sahara Desert might feel when he finds his canteen empty. You totter on the knife blades waving your arms to try to resume your balance, while two perfectly horrid friends stand by and laugh as though it were a huge joke. A rather nauseating feeling takes possession of you and this in turn changes to revenge and you start out forgetting skates, ice, and all elseg but-the next instant. finds you awakening with a halo of stars revolving around your head. Out of the blaze you distinguish the face of a fellow comrade bending over you, and rising again to your feet, you are surprised to discover that there are no injuries, but not caring to repeat the experience, you limp home amid shrieks of laughter and invitations to try again.

X fi N Q CSX OUR OLD TOWN Old Fort Benton is rather small, lt's sometimes called "The hole in the wallf' Way down in a hole, on the banks of a stream, That goes murmuring by as if in a dream, Now and then a Ford goes a buzzin' by: But more than often it is a ily. With ground all around, and sky overhead, We'd be buried alive if we had but a lid, Then the world would go 'round till the devil would slide, But old Fort Benton would be rarin' to ride. -Author Unknown. A FRESHIE DREAM Full of pep, full of vim 'Got the wit, and get the whim, We're the freshiest freshie bunch, 'Cause we've got the real punch. When Sophsf- In the prime of life will come Worse for wear but not so dumb, VVe'll go to class and make a bluff, And show the teacher we're real stuff. When Juniors-- VVhen Juniors, we will work with heat: VVe'll climb the mountain of our feat. With conquering power one year away YVe'll be content, life'll have its sway. When Seniors- As Seniors we will toil hard And show the people that we've starred And as the wisest, highest, yet, They'll step aside for the Senior set. By-A Freshie. I have a. little history book I carry 'round with me, Though what can be the use of it, ls more than I can see. I have an English literature And classics three or four, And for my Normal Training work, I've read about a score. And lots of notebooks, it's a fright, The knowledge they contain. I hate to have their contents, All crammed into my brain. ---Christine Olson. 1. . Miss Skinner- CDiscussing book re- viewsj "John, what have you read?" John H.-"I have red hair." ci. 5. "DECLAM" Last Monday in assembly cold A Sophie and a Freshie bold And a Junior so they say The "declam" honors stole away From a Senior old and grave. A Owen the Senior we all know Full merrily drank his cup of woe, Katherine to Missoula went, Hoping to place ere a week was spent, ln the honored ranks so brave. Katherine and Dot with hearts so light Did smile with face very bright To think that they of all the rest, Had luck to win the honors best, And then T. Ls. to each other gave. Bessie and Olive in cheerful way WVent back to study without delay Violet and Mary leaving their ranks Went merrily back to play their pranks, Till teacher made them behave. Merlie McLeish so frank and gay Returned at once to work and play So new at length the nine pupils bright Are back to work with all their might- And hear the people rave. -Sara Reynolds. A DOMESTIC CRISIS l was walking peacefully away from the school house when I happened to turn around and-my goodness! The door opened forcibly and out came Serene. She came very fast. Her head was thrown back. Her nose pointed sky- wards. She seemed peeved, which is put- ting it mildly. Just behind her trotted Stanley. His arms were extended and he seemed to be trying to talk. "Now Serene, listen," I heard him say, but she turned around and stamped her foot. He stopped abruptly. One would never know him to be the prominent man of the school. She was facing him with her eyes snapping fire and brimstone into his very soul. Then the miracle happened, His appealing eyes and Worshipful look pierced her armor of wrath. The corners of her mouth turned up, her eyes softened and she smiled. They walked off holding hands as peace- ful and contented as turtle doves. Ah well, such is life. -Author Unknown. 4 ,g,:.,:,,,,,. .... --IL. , .
