Not so, however, with the Pro and Con of 1916, for, supported by a large body of industrious, punctual, energetic members and guided by lWiss Seagrave, Faculty Advisor, we have become known as "The Pro and Con." Our Monday evening meetings quickly reveal thc se- cret of our success, for here every mem- ber has a chance to train himself in a work which Will be a help and a joy to him thruout his whole life. Here we gain a taste for the greatest authors and poets. Here we obtain an insight to the meanings of selections whose big- ness of thought had at first meant little or nothing to us. Here, we learn par- liamentary rules which are of the most practical use to usg and here we gain training in the composition and delivery of debates, orations, essays, declama- tions and dramatizations. Two of the best dramatizations of this year were 'jones' Courtship," realistically given by Cocha Ball, Albert Zook and Hous- ton Trvineg and the quarrel scene from "lVIary, Queen of Scots," with Nellie Anderson as the proud, haughty, jealous Queen lflizabeth, and Sallie Winsby as the penitent, pleading, downtrodden Queen lNfIary. Pro and Con had many things of which to be proud, but that which seems to outshine all others is the record of its members. Of the three Pro and Con members entered in the preliminary con- test for declamation, one, Sallie VVinsby, was given first place, and another, Cocha Ball, tied for second place. In the preliminary for debate four entered and three made the teams. Nloreover, the winning team in the contest were both Pro and Con stars. Then, too, aside from the splendid results of the contest, Pro and Con boasts of a strong body of students who are energetic, en- thusiastic, punctual, and regular. The full membership of the society is as fol- lows : VVill O'Connor Sallie Winsby Houston Irvine Archie Pellett Ruby Umstead Raymond Fields Fvalena Fields Lily Hopkins Wfill Gardner Albert Zook Laverne Harley Cocha Ball Nellie Anderson blyrtle Hunsiclcer Donald Calhoun Nlarion Power Dorris Cochran Dorothy VVilliams Pauline Newman Miss Seagrave THE CR Pro and Con has bi-monthly elections in order that more of the members may have the practice of occupying and exe- cuting the duties of the different offices. The four administrations of '15-'16 are as follows: First: President ......... Sallie VVinsby Vice-President ....... Bessie Lee Secretary and Treasurer ....... ........ .Goldie Armstrong Crimson Reporter. .Archie Pellett Second: President ........ Xvill O'Connor Vice-President ....... Cocha Ball Secretary ....... Donald Calhoun Treasurer ........ Sarah Roberts Crimson Reporter. .Archie Pellett Third: President ......... Archie Pellett Vice-President ....... .Cocha Ball Secretary ........ 1V1arion Power Treasurer - ..... .Houston lrvine Crimson Reporter. . .Sallie Winsby Fourth: President .......... Cocha Ball IMSON 33 Vice-President. .Myrtle Hunsicker Secretary ........ Ruby Umstead Treasurer ....... lV1arion Power Likewise, Pro and Con may well be proud of the splendid social times in which the society participates. The most important of these is the banquet which was given at 6:15 on the evening of bfay Day. The color scheme of crimson and gold, the society's colors, was very cleverly and artistically used. Pro and Con members owe the success of the evening very greatly to bliss Sea- grave, Miss Hughes and the Cooking Girls. The lN1enu was as follows: Fruit Cocktail lN1eat Loaf Potatoes Delmonico Olives Hot Biscuits Rhubarb Nlarmalade Banana Salad lce Cream Angel Food Cake Coffee The after-dinner talks and toasts were heartily enjoyed by all. All in all, the Pro and Con of 1916 has had a wonderful success in all its branches of Work. CRHYISON. VVhen only a Freshman, so bright and cheer, 1 entered this High School with hope and fear.

The debaters and declaimer, accom- panied by Mr. Bass, Miss Stewart, Mrs. Defebaugh and Mr. Raymond Fields, left for lola on Friday morning, April 28. During the afternoon they visited the High School and the Pres- byterian church, where the contest was held, in order to accustom themselves somewhat to their surroundings. Be- fore the contest in the evening, the contestants were introduced to their op- ponents, the judges and the presiding oflicer, Mr. Baxter McLean. The debate began at 8 o'clock. The Iola debaters were one boy and one girl. Both sides became warmed up over the question, thus furnishing the necessary spice for the occasion. After the debate the decisions were taken up and the declamations immediately 'fol- ,WXX kk!N,,.H Mm V , ,. ,. lowed. After these were given the critical moment had arrived and every- one waited on tenterhooks of suspense while the decisions were taken up. The announcement of the results was re- ceived with great applause by the audi- ence, thus showing a good spirit on the the part of lola, for the decisions were both unanimous, making lola the win- ner in debate and Fort Scott the winner in declamation. The Fort Scott de- baters were rather 'depressed until Mr. Bass had phoned to Fort Scott and learned the outcome of the contest there. This put a more cheerful look on the faces of all. We believe, however, and some lola people expressed it as their opinion that the debate was too close to Warrant a unanimous decision. On the whole, however, the school feels well satisfied, as it won three of the four events. T H E C R FORT SCOTT-IOLA CGNTEST. VVhat's the matter with F. S. H. S.? They're all right! Sure enough, thatls a fact. We're good at anything! Hon- estly, everything-football, basketball and last, but perhaps greatest, debating and declaiming. We won! Qlfxcuse me. Iola. I forgot you won one point.l The trial is over and the judge decided for us on three points out of four. The contest was held in the auditorium Fri- day, April 28. The question for debate was: "Resolved, That there should be compulsory arbitration in all railroad labor disputesf' Our boys here took the affirmative side. Will O'Connor and Albert Zook defeated the lola con- testants, Miss Felline Evans and Norris Tarman, by a vote of two to one. The rebuttal speeches were all very Well given, but VVill 0'Connor's was perhaps the best rebuttal speech that could be given in a high school debate. The Crimson also won in declamation, IMSON 35 being represented by Miss Bessie Cle- land, who won the unanimous vote of the judges over Miss Pearl Heath of lola. Miss Cleland gave HA Few Bars in the Key of G,'l and Miss Heath, "Bobbie Shaftoef' The judges were C. T. Rice of the Argentine High School and E. A. Bishop and C. A. Spensor. both of Kan- sas City, Kansas, High School. Howard VVhistler and Archie Pellett represented F. S. H. S. in debate at lola, taking the negative side, and Miss Sallie Winsby Was our declaimer, giving "The Going of the White Swan." At lola we won the declamation by a unani- mous vote, but lost the debate. Although we are sorry we could not have won all, we rejoice in our success and hope that in the years to come F. S. H. S. will always be as successful as she has been during the past year. For our declaimers and debaters we wish continued good fortune. xxx. ,PHE CRIMSGN Q H QHEWQ WTHH QQ ew! mf-E2 uma mme 5495 .-'DDL 'Es-.54 NO Ecu CD.

My Dearest Edith: Oh! I have something good to tell you, but I am so sorry you couldn't have been here last night, for you certainly did miss the greatest thing of your life! The Senior play, "Close to Namrc," 'was given last night. The very thing I have been looking forward to for weeks. And talk about it. it was just simply grand! I can hardly express it in words. There was a big crowd there Cwe are thankful for thatj and the orchestra played before and after the playa and between the acts, while the mixed quar- tette sang after the first act, and the girls' quartet after the second act. Frances Smith took the part of hlrs. Wellman, who Was a social aspirant and very disagreeable. Frances took fthe part simply line, making a beautiful char- acterization. The part of her husband, Mr. Wellman, was taken by Erle Schu- maker. Oh. you know Erle! I-Ie is so jolly and funny, he just kept us laughing all the time we were there. Edith Buchanan took the part of Barbara, their daughter. She did excellent acting and looked so sweet! Her small brother, Teddy, was George Hanes, who was the typical bad boy. Carrie, Wellman's servant, was Mary Peake, who looked a darling. Some of the other characters were: Alonzo K. Dewsnap, editor of a health magazine. Ralph Moore played that part, and he was so good. jarks, a Canadian backwoods- man, was Lowell Van Brunt. He was undoubtedly funny-looking. lN'lrs. lVluir- head was the farmer's wife at Farm Spring, and that was played by hladge Boyer. Everyone did well and also showed that they had talent.

To the girls of the class of 1915, who were in school taking Post Grad Work, is due the praise and apprecia- tion of the school for the presentation of the bust of Lincoln, the memorial of the class of 1915. "The Trouble at SHttC1'lCC,SH was the play given by Mary Lefker, lVlildred Richardson, Ellie lVIahan and Zella Marshall. The girls were fortunate in getting help on their program in thc form of a musical cycle given in duet form by Mr. H. A. VValton and lWrs. N. W. Benning. xThe second number on the program was the play, a light one-act farce-comedy, which Was well produced by the four girls, With the kind help of Mr. Land. A'fter the play Mrs. Streeter Blair played two flute solos, Which delighted the hearers with their unusual loveli- ness. The program of the evening was concluded with two piano solos by Miss Alta Magner. The program Was a grand success from beginning to end, and although the play Was given to raise the debt of the Crimson which was left over from last year, it Was such a success that the debt is now a thing of the past, and the school is the recipient of the gift of the 1915 class in the Bachman bust of Lin- coln, which is now in its honorable place above one of the doors in the audito- rium.

The boys' interclass basketball tour- nament still grows in favor with the student body. The games this year were unusually well attended on ac- count of the strong teams represent- ing the four classes of the school. Prob- ably the most important reasons for holding these interclass games are, the importance of getting as many pupils interested in school work as possible. and the chance it g'ves Coach Beam to pick his first-team material. VVe are printing the names of all boys participat- ing in any of the interclass games, and you will be surprised to find out that there are thirty boys that make good first-team material: Frcshmen-Travis.

Probably the most interesting game of the tournament wxs the one between the Seniors and the Soploo'i'ores for the championship, both tearrs having de- feated the other team in the tourna- ment. The first half resiiltel 5 to 3 in favor of the Seniors and the second half was a walkaway from the Sopho- mores in the last few minutes of play, the game going to the Seniors, 20 to 8.

Although the Fac- ulty team is composed of all-state men, the Ubeefl' of the professors Was too much for the youngsters. The Senior team was composed of Aus and Atkins, forwards, Van Brunt and VVhis1er, centers: Harphold Ccap- tainl and Potter, guards. G I RLS CLASS B,-XSKIi'l'BgX LI.. The Junior Girls' Basketball Team won the Rodecker Trophy 'oy defeating the Sophomore, Freshman and Senior teams. The games were exciting and hard fought, but the Juiors were Victor- ious.

Bahney, Lola Armstrong, Dorothy Yvilliams, hflazie Sievert, Ethel Ketter and Frances Strong. To be able to keep the cup, one team has to win it three years in succession. This makes the second year the class of 1917 has Won it, and they have high hopes of winning it again next year and thus be able to present it to the High School. After Working for some time to key out a plant in botany, Nl. S. Wrote un- der "Remarks" to following: "Had dickens of a time getting it." 52 THE CRIMSON THE VVEEKLY C R I MSON. The High School has 'instituted a plan in the last year which has attracted no little attention from schools far and near, not only because of its novelty, but because of its immense practical ad- vantage to students in English courses. This plan was to take one column a week in each of the two city papers and make the English students responsible for the filling of that column with ma- terial gathered together and arranged by themselves. Conitions were ideal in the Fort Scott High School for the thorough test- ing of a plan such as this. The two city papers, the editors of which are enthu- siastic boosters of the High School, generously oliered columns in their pa- pers free of charge for the use of the school. High School students and fac- ulty got behind the work and pushed it FLASH with their usual 'lpepfl with the result that they made Professor Devlin proud to recommend the plan to such schools as those in Kansas City, l.eavenworth, Argentine and Colleyville, who, hearing of the idea, wrote here to inquire as to its practicability, with the object in view of instituting it in their own schools. Teachers could have called for such work as the column required. to be pre- pared as a lesson. But preparing a les- son lacks the incentive which actually 'lwriting up" advertisements of school affairs, really thinking up editorials or reporting school events has when you know the work will be published and that the responsibility ot getting it in on time and in good readable form for the public rests on you individually. The High School is unanimously in favor of the plan and certainly desires it to be incorporated again next year. ZW? S A "NOVEL" ADVENTURE. Chapter one-A Senior meet. two-A fruit cake sweet.

The Public Speaking class gave a play. So did the Music Department, Junior, Senior and Post-Graduate classf es. The debaters and declaimers won honors for the school and were duly praised. Then, on May hfth, the girls' gymnasium classes, a department of the school but slightly known to the public, gave a May Day Festival. They are now boasting of great success and of crowds larger than those drawn by any' of the preceding entertainments. There were two performances, one at 3:15, the other at 8:00. Both began promptly and in the view of a crowded balcony, the girls put on the national dances very well indeed. In fact they did so well, that the audience demand- ed a second show in the evening. The participants are sure that at least part of their success was due to the beautifully decorated gymnasium, for the boys' gym. classes had hung from the balcony deep festoons of green an-d white and had adorned the Queen's throne in the same colors. Many vases of flowers were set about the room, making it all the prettier. In behalf of the girls, we wish to thank the boys for their kindness and help. A word of thanks is also extended to the public for its attendance and con- gratulations. But most of all do we wish to thank our instructress, bliss Ina Stewart, and our musicians, bliss Josephine Coe and Mr. Gola Roberts. Grand lVIarch. Crowning of May Queen. Fairies' Dance.

There were no better ones in either the Children's Dances nor the VVinding of the May Pole, but Mary Bowie, our little Scotch girl, dem- onstrated the Highland Fling perfect- ly. The other girls in the dance did their best, but she did better than the best.

Should the door of education be closed on him as soon as he is on the outer side? lwlust he look back through the windows at the diverse activities with- in-the commercial work, the cabinet making. public speaking, agriculture, or the study of music-but to be told "yor: had your chance? Yes, it is true, they are teaching things now that were not taught when you were in school, but that you went to school at an earlier period is your misfortune!" Must the intellectual Woman who has discovered that her education has not prepared her to cope with the problems or meal getting and housekeeping, or dressmaking, and the good housekeeper who would like to increase her general knowledge see the young people around them heedlessly receiving the training that would be of such vital importance to themselves while they are denied the same advantages?

XVell, they said they were, and they went. lfvery Tuesday night rain or shine, Cand it was mostly rain,j High School was the scene of the greatest activity in town. blany of the students were more faithful in attendance than they would have been to any social organiza- tion. lt was a case of opportunity knocking and there were many keen ears. lfarly in the season the gymnas- ium class and some of the laboratory classes were taxed to their limit and fur- ther enrollment in them was closed. The business courses were well filled and most of the other classes were large enough to do good work. IMSOY 55 .X composite sound of nice school ac- tivity would have been made up of the scratching of pens, the click of the type- writer, the march of feet and the clap of hands, the noise of egg-beaters, the hum of sewing machines, the reading of German, the hammer 'lwhat you hit on the head with the nail," and the whir of the Babcock tester. A composite picture would have been one of pupils and teachers hard at work trying to gather in a limited space of time a vast fund of information. 'lihat this interest manifested was not a passing one was evidenced by the way both enthusiasm and attendance were maintained up to the last lesson, Tues- day, blay 2nd, a date much later than most night schools held. And now word has come from that body which directs Fort Scott's school activities, her elli- cient Board of Education, "You have shown us you really were in earnest, you have profited by what We have of- fered and your night school for next year is assured."

The following is one of the former and was related by a convalescent British "Tommy" in the St. Antoine Hospital in Paris. It was told in the sportsmanlike manner in which "Tommy" always admires the cool facing of grim death, even if that facing is done by a spy of the hated Bosche: " 'E was a 'ell of a good lookin' devil, blue eyes, curly 'air, tall, broad shoul- dered, and as I afterwards found out 'e spoke English like a book. 0' the eight o' us bloakes wot rounded 'im in, only three got back and 'ed 'o got us if 'is gun 'aden't 'o jammed. U 'E was ordered to be shot next morning and as I was on the executin squad I got a chance to speak to 'im while we was watin' for orders to march out to where 'is grave was dug and where 'e was to be shot. "I felt sorry for the poor devil, and to sort 'o cheer 'im up a bit I offered 'im the makins of the last bag I 'ad. 'E rolled it slowly, 'is fingers as steady as mine and when I 'anded 'im a match 'e nodded and smiled. In a second, 'owever, 'e became serious and said, "Tommy, I'd like to ask a favor of you." "Well," I said, "If it don't go against orders, I'll do it." "It won't," 'e whispered eagerly, and reaching into an inner pocket 'e drew out a small package. 'Is 'ands was shakin' now and 'is breath comes jerky like. U 'Ere it is," 'e said and drew out a regulation army bullet with a small cross cut in the end of it. "I'd like to 'ave ye kill me with that," 'e said cooly. And then noticin' my surprised look 'e explained. "When I was a bit of a kid my fath- er, who was an engraver, took me into 'is office and let me watch 'im while 'e cut that cross in there. VVhen 'e was through 'e 'anded it to me and said, "keep it, it will bring you good luck some day." They got the old man at Ypres and for 'is sake I'd like to make 'is prophesy come true." "But you don't mean to call death good luck P" I said. H 'Ell, it's the best luck us poor dev- ils in the trenches can ever 'ope for. You will kill me with it, won't you?" I nodded. I couldn't speak for that 'orrible sickenin' lump in my throat. "Thanks friend," 'e said," and God bless you. One more thing, 'owever," and 'e took an indellible pencil from 'is pocket and drew a small cross like the one on the bullet on 'is forehead. The cold sweat which stood on 'is brow turned the indellible mark to a sicken- ing purple. "I'd like to be 'it right there, please." I promised 'im to do the best I could, and then the order was given to march. The orders came quick and sharp: f'NIake ready!" "Take aim!" I look- ed down the barrel of my gun at 'is face. 'Is lips were smilin' and though 'is eyes were covered I knew they were lookin' straight at me. The little pur- ple cross on 'is 'ead seemed blurred and appeared to take peculiar shapes and sizes. "Fire!" I shut my eyes and pulled. Chance steadied my gun, 'owever, for when the smoke cleared up a small bloody 'ole showed where the cross 'ad been. The prophesy was fulfilled."

Mr. Spectator: In our High School there is a room which to all appearances is as common as any of the others, except for the fact that there are many tables and books, not to speak of bottles and various other fur- niture. But this room seems to have a certain charm which attracts people to it after school hours. Perhaps it is the presiding officer who is the object of in-- terest. Indeed, he is very handsome Cso some think, tho' slightly inclined to be a bit sanguine as to complexionj and well known as to wit. VVhatever the attraction, this room serves as a congregating place for a bril- liant coterie of wits, and therein an idle stu-dent might while away his time in keen enjoyment. And it quite frequently happens, as is apt to be the case when such wits are so thrown together, that there are many arguments which bring forth such orations as would do credit to Cicero. It would be superfluous to give a de- tailed discussion of any one of these dis- agreements, but there hath been such frequent recourse to a few favored ques- tions and such violent disputes concern- ing them, that the participants must needs compromise and decide to refer them to your most honorable judgment. The first is a question of style. There is one young lady who, by the way, is not an inhabitant of our magnificent city, who is a frequenter of these assem- blages-and Jocinda is generally voted a beauty and liked by all who have be- come acquainted with her many charms. She is tall and of the brunette type, full of life and loves a good time. It was she, you may remember, who trimmed her eyebrows while home on a vacation, and created such a sensation on her re- turn. But, above all, is she fond of dressy and, indeed, she is far from back- ward in demonstrating Qher fastidious testes along that line. I happened to be absent during the Hrst part of this dis- cussion, and so cannot give an account Of how it started, altho' I have an im- pression that it began with the young lady's remark that the new overcoats for the young men, which fit the upper part of the anatomy like abanana peel, and Hare out at the bottom as one of those delicious fruits from which the peeling has been partly removed, were "perfectly ridiculousf' At any rate, the argument was hot, and the participants were there-Iocin-da, the aforemen- tioned official fwhom we shall call Phil- anderj, and another gentleman whom everybody likes for his good nature and keen entertaining abilities, and whom we shall call Percival, the name by which he is best known to his most intimate friends. The gentlemen firmly main- tained that the high-heeled shoes, bril- liant hosiery, and all the fripperies of feminine vanity were all bosh, and that the men were the only persons who had any common sense about clothing. But altho' both gentlemen are known to be good talkers, yet they could not outdo the brilliant wit an-d pretty argu- ments of the charming Jocinda, who furiously raved at the hideous English style of menls clothing and warmly cham- pioned the delicious finery of the femi- nine fancies. There could be no com- promise, for the lady refused to give up her beloved high heels and the young men their umbrella overcoats. The next question, Dear lVIr. Specta- tor, which we refer to your all-wise judgment, has to do with the wisdom of the sexes. The ladies maintain that the female is the wisest by far and that to be her equal a man must be at least ten years older. And they propound their ideas with such pretty wisdom and deep cogitations that the men are in for be- lieving them themselves, but for the fact that they are proud creatures and cock their noses at the idea of marrying a babe in swaddling clothes-which, in- deed, many of them would have to do by this ideal. Indeed, it is distressing. for it is a vital question, and we cannot come to any conclusion. The other question, Mr. Spectator, is: "Where is the seat of affections ?'l Phil- ander, who is a man of much scientific THE CR knowledge and little sentiment, would have it in the head, and the male coterie uphold himg for must not all men stick together against these dangerous fe- males? But Jocinda, Sacharissa, Car- millo and the other almost equally charming members of their sex place it in the heart, and weep bitter, senti- mental tears that any "old, heartless fogy" should put it otherwise: for His not the heart the theme of poetry, the vital part of life and all connected with it? Men are such blockheadsln And the blockheads are true to their title, and all remain firm. So, what can we do? lndeed, blr. Spectator, our situation of indecision hath been made very sad and so we appeal to your superior wis- dom and wide experience with humanity and its problems for a solution to these three questions. Solve them, good Mr. Spectator, and oblige, Your most humble servant, THALESTRIS. XVILLIAM VVILSON-MY AVAR- ICE IN EGYPT. Ufitlz due apologies to the memory of Edgar .flllen Poe. Slowly Egypt's sun was setting be- yond the massive pyramids and as the last shadow fell over the enigmatical physiognomy of the Sphinx, l, Yvilliam Wilson, shouldering pick and spade, could have been seen plodding over the desert to unearth the hidden treasure of one of the Pharaohs. l had long been a traveler on the islands and on the continent and, fresh from the pleasures of Naples, was about to search for untold wealth. The se- cret of its hiding place had been de- ciphered by me from the hieroglyphic-s on the back of a scarabaeus that had been owned by some Egyptian monarch centuries and centuries before. Though in Egypt but a few days, l felt sure of my directions, as l am at home every- where. The large, full moon, throwing a sul- phurous lutre over all, arose to find me laboriously digging for the hidden IMSON 81 wealth. Hour after hour l toiled away unceasingly, my greed for gold and av- arice spurring my tired muscles to fur- ther efforts. The pile of dirt at my side increased amazingly fast, until it seemed as if it would soon rival in size the distant pyramids. lVhen light first began to glimmer in the east, turning the gray clouds to hya- cinth and purple, my efforts were appa- rently rewarded. lNly pick had struck something hard-the treasure was within my reach! l quickly cleared the remaining earth away, a blow from my pick opened a magnifiicent marble sarcopha- gus, and jewels which might have been the glory of kings and crowned the heads of queens dazzled my eyes. As l stooped to grasp the fortune at my feet, overpowered by an intense sentiment of horror, unaccountable yet unendurable, l turned, to see the visage of the marble figure, recumbent on the lid of the sar- cophagus, change to the lineaments of my omnipresent double, Nvilliam Wil- son. .-Xt this moment l heard his ever- remembered, low, whispering voice say- ing: "Touch not Egypt's hidden treas- ure," and l lost consciousness. VVhen l regained my senses the sun was high in the heavens and, as before my coming, the treasure was buried -deep and guarded by Egypt's immortal watch- dog,-the Sphinx. -Bernire Bmnliergcr.

THE CR IDEAS OF A PLAIN COUNTRY IXIAN. A traveler from the city once stopped to examine my vegetable garden. l gave him a bouquet of onions and garlic and he went on his weary way much stronger than before. Little do we know the effect which the planting of a few small seeds will have on the life of a man. To our brothers in the city I would say: 'fBanish the cares of the office and indulge in the eifervescing odors of the country air.'l l.et me tell you why an onion strengthens the heart and brings tears of sympathy to your eyes. lt is because it awakens strong chords of sympathy in every good heart. VVhile looking at it everybody is equal in common thought. XVe say: "Behold a thing of strength," and the person or persons near us are one with us in that moment of comprehension. TO .MISS I.. G. P.

The following department embodies the ever-growing interest manifested by the sterner sex in the wiles of Dame Fashion. It is edited exclusively for the masculine gender. Ladies are re- quested to have the consideration hith- erto shown by the men, and refrain from reading these paragraphs. A very nobby model in a serving jacket of waterproof material with spa- cious pockets and sleeves capable of holding several ketchup bottles, is a late creation and promises to meet with much favor from the Y. M. C. A. hashers. Crepe de chine shirts will be worn ex- IMSON 83 tensively. They are a bit expensive, but can be made economical by ex- changing with your sister or mother. Plaids are extremely popular. Pea green, orange and pinks are the popular colors for socks, handkerchiefs and shirts. Crepe paper furnishes an excellent dye for variety. Silk ties in changeable, brilliant col- ors will be manifest. A splash of crim- son against a pale green shirt gives an exquisite effect. Gentlemen's suits decrease as ladies' increase. lf your last summer's suit is still 'las good as new," it can be easily made in style by soaking over night in cold water, Knee trousers and elbow-length sleeves add much to the graceful ap- pearance and comfort of the wearer. f'Kitty-Kat" ties to- match the girls' hair and hat ribbons, both in size and color, are in demand. Hair a la pompadour is retiring in favor of the part, especially the middle part. Clf your pomp refuses to stay down, you can get the assistance of either Mr. Bass or Mr. Yorkj Shorts will be worn much longer this year. Not over four weeks, however. For wear use lubricating oil. Canes are very popular-and practi- cal in emergency cases. They have a crook which will fit over the arm of the girl you may be accompanying, enabling you to walk beside her without crump- ling her Howing dress. A brilliant colored feather from your father's pet rooster inserted in a dainty pink bow, gives a nifty touch to the wide Panama, which will be the craze this summer. NVhite kid pumps or shoes with brown lowers and white tops promise to meet with much favor and fit well with the figured hose. A very nobby model in an evening coat is a late creation and one which will probably be much in demand be- cause it is guaranteed not to show pow-- der or hair. It is very economical to High School boys-it saves many com- plications. 84 THE CRIMSON SENIOR DOIN'S. The Seniors started off their social calendar for 1916 with a fake burial of their Uhoodool' fruit Cake. This was put on for the benefit of Juniors, as the Seniors realized that Juniors had an un- usual love for cake. No doubt the Sen- iors shocked the natives when they heard their chorus of some 400 voices, more or less, in concert that evening. lf there were any of them who failed to ruin their clothes rolling down hills, it must have been an accident. 2. Naturally, the Seniors didn't want to see "Babe" go off mad, so they concluded they would give an informal farewell party for him. lf a picture- show man had been in town that night, he would certainly have sacrificed his life to get a glimpse of the Seniors. It was a tacky party, and tacky in all senses of the word, too. Bernice and one of the boys Cthey won't say whoj exchanged clothes-overalls and apron. Speaking about eats! They claim them as the best ever and thank Margery over and over again for offering her home as a rendezvous for the Ugangm that evening. 3. The "Dignities,l' as the Seniors call themselves, thought that a little for- mality would make the season more fashionable, so gave a big gym party for the faculty and post grads. They took old St. Patrick as their honored hero. The color scheme was green and white, with blue and gold at the stair- Way. Although all the faculty weren't there, we had a fine time-at least the guests said so. Qui' specialty for the evening was a suffrage parade. Every- one looked very striking in costumes of green and white, and ate heartily of the refreshments. 4. You can depend on the Seniors snatching anything that's offered them. The faculty came up with a banquet in honor of the Seniors, and of course the whole class turned out. A four-course dinner was served, which was followed by after-dinner speeches by Edith Buchanan, Mr. Hughes, lWr. Devlin, Bernice Foster, Ralph Moore and Miss Pressler. Although the benefits We reaped lasted only a few hours, the memory of such an event will last far into the misty annals of eternity. 5. The Seniors went on a hayrack after the cake, and the Juniors tried to go, too. But that's all the Juniors did do. They thought they knew where the cake was, but they didn't. So they went back to where they came from and left the Seniors to dig up their cake in peace. But it was far from peace that followed. Percy and Harpold didn't like the idea of having to break rocks to get the cake, but they had to do it. And Hughes and Bass helped, too. VVell, they finally dug it out and opened the tin box with a rusty can opener. The better half of this mys- terious cake was eagerly devoured by the hungry. After they had eaten all there was to be eaten, except the grass, they all went back to the wagon, climbed aboard and set sail for home, arriving at port about nine bells. 6. The Junior-Senior reception has n't come off yet. But, of course, a good time is assure-d. There no doubt will be a good crowd, as the Seniors feel like they will have the best ever. Prepare, ye faculty and students, To see yourselves as others see youg For the gala day of all the Senior year is near in view. You had beter be prepared to get what's coming to you. If you have been acting up during the year, there is a great danger of you gaining notoriety. Of course, the Seniors do not mean any harm if you should happen to be the one the joke falls on. lt's only a little school-day fun. English is a language, And is always going to be. lt starte-d with the Saxons, And now it's got to me. Latin is a language- At least it used to be.

Though southward and eastward threatening war clouds darken our na- tion's horizon, the particular bit of sky above our beloved F. S. H. S. was never brighter. The inauspicious beginning of our class of 1916 in the "stalls" of Con- vention Hall is almost crowded from our minds by the delights of our present surroundings. The building of which our town might Well be proud is fact receiving the fin- ishing touches, given by appropriate pic- tures and pieces of statuary. The bust of Lincoln resting above the door at the left of the stage speaks of the inter- est shown by the class of 1915, while the handsome bas-relief, "VVashington Crossing the Delaware," at the back of the stage, shows the loyalty of the class of 1913. "Burns' Cottage in Win- ter,', adorning the west wall of the study hall, reminds us of the victory won in the declamation contest at Co- lumbus by one of our own class. "The Flight of Night," "Dawn," and "Sun- set on the lWeadow," in the inner office, point to the energy shown by the stu- dents in making a success of the Art Exhibit brought to Convention Hall. Rembrandt's f'Mill" and i'The Shep- herdess," which beautify the sewing- room, give evidence of the zeal and skill of the home economics classes as shown in their candy bazaars. The trophy money from the recent victories won in the Iola-Fort Scott contest, promises further decoration. Brighter than these decorative touches, however, are the many signs of IMSON 85 numberless activities pointing to the in- creased usefulness of the school. The columns contributed each week to both of the city dailies cannot fail to con- vince of the effective work of the Eng- lish department. The class in public speaking, of course, speaks for itself, and the public is much delighted at its manner of doing it. It is a new feature in the school, which is deservedly in great favor. The new wireless now being erected on the top of our building bears witness to the enthusiasm of the boys in the physics classes. The busy scene in the sewing room, where all are engaged in making worth-while articles, and where many Junior and Senior girls are making their own frocks for the much-looked-for event. the Junior-Senior reception, tes- tifies to the practical work done there. The classes in cooking have, perhaps, the most pleasing way of demonstrating their knowledge, and this year the fac- ulty, the school board, the students and the general public have been given am- ple opportunity to judge of their skill. lncreased interest in manual training is evinced by the articles of increasing use- fulness and beauty continually being taken home from the shops. Much as these signs betoken, doubt- less the most propitious of all is the great success of the night school. With its classes in full operation, as our su- perintendent expects to have them next year, old F. S. H. S. will indeed be- come not only a school for Hall the chil- dren of all the people," as one author has named his book, but a school for all Ihr' people. ii if "'-ff ,. ff iggfigl' gag?-fe.-Q-mQ..Q' "M """f' f1.i.s,:a,,W5,g -91:1 gy- 45 -YS .24 'i-tl ' "'2"'7' nf."-19" 1 5 'fe.'ff1'e::'1ge '11 mailfw 'S Q' 1 f .ev ii' 1 Miiffae h .

L A LITTLE TIP Below are listed some of the world's greatest photodramas and they will be shown either at the Pictureland Theatre or Vaudette Theatre soon. They are pictures that the rental is from 5100.00 per day to 535.00 per day, featuring well known stars. Do not compare them to the ordinary feature picture and consider yourself lucky you have the chance to see them in Fort Scott instead of journeying to New York, Chicago or even Kansas City. Broadway can't show any better photoplays. 'TTHE BA TTLIC CRY OF l'liACl'l,' Adapted from Hudson Maxim's book, "Defenseless America."
