TO 'THE STUDENTS OF JUNIOR
You are to be congratulated that you
have continued your school Work until
you have reached that stage of your edu-
cation which We call "secondary" You
have passed the primary stage and have
reached that period of life during which
you are to be privileged to Work to a
very much greater extent upon your own
initiative and under your own direction.
A Whether or not you are to become edu-
catelil men and Women is going very largely to depend upon Whether or
not you can learn to be independent in your thinking and Working.
M. H. MOORE
You will soon be senior high school students and will then have reached
that period in your educational life when you will be called upon to
make some very definite decisions as to the courses you will take and the
vocations you will pursue throughout your life.
I hope that you are happily engaged in your present studies and that
the future may hold for you only that which is good. e
Sincerely your friend,

Our Student Body-as I watch and
study each of you, there comes a vision
of what you can accomplish in the future.
'When I think of what our boys and
girls of a few years ago-men and women
of today-are doing, we know it is our
duty to help you realize your opportuni-
ties for service to society and the power
of your influence. W' e have confidence
in your ability to do thingsg we ask you
to take part in our extra-curricular ac-
tivities for the benefits you will derive
and for the great value of your example to those who hesitate to test
out their abilities.
Be fair always and respect the rights of allg this you owe society. Then
demand fairness and the proper respect of your rights, this you owe

Since the time of the First Great Teacher there has been no calling
demanding of its followers such rigorous qualifications as the teaching
profession. To be a member Worthy of the title one must be a little
bigger, a little broader, a little finer in every aspect than the followers of
any other profession, yet surely the reward must come in the realization
of the progress which the World is making, for education makes civil-

Sophomore Class Officers
Shortly after school opened, the Sophs were all aflutter over the announcement
that the 2A and 2B classes were to be organized this term. Accordingly, on the ap-
pointed days, first the 2B's, sponsored by Miss Beck, and then the 2A's, sponsored by
Miss Yantis, were summoned to the auditorium. At their first meeting the 2B's elected
Bob Erisman president, jean Flaherty, vice-president, Alpha Campbell, secretary, Walter
Vassar, treasurer. Next day the 2A's elected Mary Jane Ridgeway president, Lawrence
May, vice-president, John Scott, secretary, Gordon Grimes, treasurer, Billy Phillips,
sergeant-at-arms, and Mildred Frey, reporter.
Throughout the term, when questions arose that demanded the attention and dis-
cussion of the students, meetings were called. It was at these that we honored our
heroes, debated subjects of the utmost importance to the school, and that We made our
good resolutions. It was at a class meeting we decided to attempt an annual, that we
made up our minds that we could and would put it overg it was at a class meeting that
we thanked the school board for having our walls painted, and pledged each other to keep
them white, that we commented on our honor study halls, and asked our girls to make
them successful, and that we resolved to remember the small things that make a school
great, for Junior's sake.

The History Club
VERYTHING that is old has a past worth knowing, thus decided Miss King and
Miss Garrett, one September day in '2S. These two gathered about them a group
of students anxious to learn the past of a city grown old, proud, and formidable. They
were eager to learn the story of a city, a city that rose in the Southwest, and grew with
it to be the most superlative of cities, as it grew to be the most superlative of lands.
The History Club, formed for this purpose by those who know and love the South-
land, and in the past year guided and inspired by Miss Ethel Osborne, is at the present
engaged in the most interesting of studies, exploring old corners in Tarrant, in becoming
familiar with the history of the city that is-Fort Wortli.

Home Economics Club
HERE is one department in Junior which is not to be outdone by any other in any
particular, whether it be organization or good looking girls, for the said department
is made up wholly of girls. This lively and enthusiastic set is known as the Home Eco-
Several months ago, on October 19, 192 6, to be exact, a group of girls, all members
of the Home Economics Department, Qfor as everyone knows, there is always a group
within a group, a crowd within a crowd, a set, etc., etc.j met, and, sponsored by Miss
Bunting, Miss Moore, and Mrs. Gunn, organized the Home Economics Club. At the
Hrst meeting, Alpha Campbell was elected president, Fay Smyre, vice-president, Inez
Able, secretary, and Frances Lamkin, reporter.
Already they have spent many happy times together, but plans are laid for many
more. Perhaps the greatest treat they are holding before their own eyes is the promised
trip to Lake Worth once every month, for an all-day meeting with the other Home
Economics Clubs of Fort Worth. Plans are for a program with a lecture on Home
Economics by some eminent person whose knowledge and experience are undisputed. To
follow this, they plan games and instruction in the arts and crafts of the woods. Then
home again, home again.
What fun! Always something new with them. It has been said that variety is the
spice of life, and if it is, they should have the spiciest lives of any girls on earth.

1' Law Club l
UNIOR is the home of a most interesting and extraordinary club, founded with a
purpose as unusual as its study will prove helpful in every walk and time of life. This
club is the Law Club, founded last October, with Miss Sue King as sponsor.
At the first meeting, Eugene Ross was elected president, Donald Wood, vice-presi-
dent, and Sue McKeever, secretary. Because of a name that embraces so much terri-
tory, members have many times been approached by inquiring "Fish" and subjected to
questioning concerning the nature, purpose, in fact, sometimes, the "big idea" of the club.
It has been learned b counter- uestionin their oun in uisitors, that the or an-
Y fl 8 Y g C1 S
ization has been mistaken for the kind, whatever that kind may be, that is founded for
the ur ose of develo in the oor little students into law ers. Also the members have
P P P g P Y
been suspected of being secret agents of that vague and unknown force, "School Lawf'
However, the have not et uite iven u ho e of ever bein able to make lain their
Y Y Cl S P P 8 P
purpose, and seem quite grateful for this opportunity to do so.
The study of the immigration laws of the United States was chosen as their chief
aim and purpose. And now the members of the Law Club may consider themselves Well
informed on the subject, as there are very few people, particularly students, with so many
other interests, who know as much about the subject.

F ALL the Nations in the whole wide world, there is scarcely one not represented
at Junior. Nearly every one is represented either by a native, or sometimes by an
individual who has long known the country and its peoples, or by an organization formed
for the purpose of studying the history, arts and literature of that race and nation, and
Spain, that country most famed in old romance for the dark beauty of the women, the
hot-blooded courage of the men, and the inborn love every Spaniard cherishes for things
gay, brave and beautiful, is represented in Junior by the Spanish Club.
Only those who are students of Spanish may become members of this club, of Which
Miss Bookman is sponsor. ln the past, the Spanish Club has been one of the largest and
best known organizations in the school, and has distinguished itself by its alertness and
willing devotion to whatever is best for Junior, for the future, the Spanish Club plans
the program that has ever proved the most successful of all, that of Progress and Service.

The Tea Hour Club
HERE is, in England, a time-honored custom of holding little social gatherings and
' serving tea. Developing from this custom, both the idea and name, 60 junior girls,
sponsored by Miss Garrett, organized themselves into the TEA HOUR CLUB, which is
Junior's only social club.
These girls meet twice a month in the library, enjoy a program, always of unusual
merit, and, in accordance with the original custom, serve refreshments from their own
prettily decorated tea table. They engage in many interesting social activities, and keep
themselves a splendid model for any club that wishes to copy theirs.
The Tea Hour Girls were delighted to have as visitors and speakers during the term,
Mrs. Dan Brown, Mrs. R. E. Buchanan, Miss Litsey, Mrs. I-I. C. Burke, Jr., Mrs. Cato
Sells, and Mr. Gurpis. These people, through their interesting conversations and remark-
able personalities, opening for the club members many new roads and visions. 1
In their sponsor, Miss Garrett, the Tea Hour Club has, indeed, a teacher particularly
well suited for her work. It was through her influence, and the time and effort that
l i she put forth in the interest of the club that Tea Hour was enabled to accomplish the il
many great things it has done for Junior.

Here's to the club A banquet for the "griddlers,"
, With the vim and pepg Who fought with their might,
From a mere little voice Was given by the Girl Reserves
I To a roar it has crept. On one Friday night.
To give it some energy The members played Santy
And start it of right To many a kid.
Came a "weenie" roast party 'Twas another good deed
Which lasted 'til night. Which the Girl Reserves did.
Then came the Recognition Service Not closing with this,
As everyone knows But waiting to add
That was prettier hy far That lots of good times
Than most any old shows. Are still to he had.

OON after school started this year, the appearance about the halls of Junior, of
posters, advertising shows, football, games, etc., effectually announced the organiza-
tion of a new club, the Poster Club, with Mr. Stringer and Miss Musgrave as sponsors.
The new club had two purposes, to give students interested in poster work a chance
to "do their stuffng and to fill the coffer of Junior High, as a result of well advertised,
well attended shows.
At the first meeting, October 1, the following officers were elected: Raymond
Orren, president, Reginald Butcher, vice-president, Charles Felder, secretary. The
slogan, "It Pays to Advertise," was adopted. It was agreed that no charge would be
made for posters advertising shows, activities, anything sponsored by Junior, thus saving
the money which had formerly been spent for advertising.
The calendar of the year's work included many interesting and remunerative tasks
-remunerative in appreciation by various departments as a result of our efforts. We
feel that if enjoyment of one's work and satisfaction at having accomplished at least
a part of the tasks set for ourselves are measures of success, we are indeed successful.
However, if we have lived up to the ideal of "Charity beginning at home," by our
efforts to carry out the Biblical instructions, "Bear ye one auother's burdens," the
Dramatics Department has gone a step farther and has immortalized that passage,
"By their works ye shall know themf' for it is to them we are indebted for our rep-
resentation in the Annual.

HE Mixed Glee Club is made up of selected voices and this term has had a member-
ship of twenty-six.
These young people are called upon to lead in any group singing and to appear also
in the public performances given by the music department.
Of the last mentioned their most important appearances this term Were: the Open
House program, November 105 Parent-Teachers meeting, December 95 The Operetta,
"Way Down South in Dixie," presented January 18g our Christmas Cantata, "On
to Bethlehem." The Glee Club was assisted by the combined chorus classes of our
school and the Cantata was given upon three occasions, twice in our own school, and
once at the Broadway Presbyterian Church Sunday morning, December 26.
Members of the Glee Club feel that credit for the success of this department is due
wholly to the superior knowledge of music and the excellent qualities as an instructor
of their teacher, Miss Irma Poindexter.
The Glee Club members thoroughly enjoy their work and expect to possess the
same personnel next term, with additional members.

T IS, for the most part, with a feeling of satisfaction that
We put into your hands the 1927 volume of the ujunior
Purple." We have lived in its pages until it has become a
part of us. We have experienced the glad days and the busy

on even the mistakes with a significant feeling.
We are sincerely sorry for the numerous errors We must
have made. We beg Pauline Hynd,s pardon for putting her
on a Freshman page when she is a Sophomore, and a Worthy
one. There are doubtless those students whose pictures have
been left out, and no one more deeply regrets it than the
members of the staff.
We are sincerely sorry for the numerous errors We must have

Most of all We Wish to express our hearty appreciation for
the Work done by our sponsor, Miss Mary Marjorie Dickey.
She has given the best of her time and effort to make the book
a success. She has persisted when all else were ready to quit,
and she has accomplished what few could do. We have en-
joyed Working with her, and we feel that Junior has been
exceedingly fortunate in having a teacher of such sterling
quality and unusual merit.
And so We close our book hoping that it will mean to you,

Those Klassy, Katchy, Kunning Kadets-they're the pride of Junior! And Why
shouldn't they be? They have made a record that is beyond comparison, and as Miss
Musgrave says, "We love every one of them." Among their achievements was the
Winning of the beautiful cup they placed in the trophy case by putting out the crack
squad of Fort Worth. Then, too, there was the officers' club that at least gave the
boys training in planning theatre parties.
And the good times they have! There was the dance the sponsors gave in their
honor, and the luncheon the P.-T. A. gave for the Crack Squad, to say nothing of the
fun they have riding on Saturday.
Above all, they were fortunate in having as their instructor, Captain James L. Stitt.
He was, in a large measure, responsible for their success, and the entire school gives
him a rising vote of thanks for his splendid work.

Junior vs. Granbury
Worth Field, October 8, 1926.
N THIS day Coach Meyers sent his Junior
CAPTAIN GEORGE ANKEI-E Warriors into one of the hargest fought
games of the season. They came off battle-scarred but victorious, carry-
ing the thirteen-to-nothing honors from the Granbury eleven. Scores
came in the second quarter when Bransford CBuffaloj succeeded first in
carrying the pigskin twelve yards on an end run for a touchdown, and
again when he made a fifteen-yard dash for another. Jordon brought in
the extra point. These plays, with Carpenter's defensive Work, were the
features of the game. Critics held this first game to be the best played
of the season.

N THIS Thursday, in one of the most exciting games of the season,
the Junior players defeated Vocational by a score of nineteen to six.
Bransford made a spectacular play early in the game when he ran fifteen
yards for a touchdown on a fake end run. Both teams scored in the last
quarter. The Junior men brought the game to a thrilling climax when
they scored late in the last quarter, bringing our score to nineteen. Voca-

1 RLINGTON HEIGHTS won the first city championship game by
a score of twelve to nothing, though kept to a low score by the
i mighty defensive work of Bass, Junior guard. The Arlington eleven
scored in the first and second quarters. Jordon, the only man in the
Junior backfield who seemed able to gain consistently, picked up a
fumble and ran sixty yards for a touchdown, but was recalled because

if UNIOR'S team, though victorious over Granbury's earlier in the sea-

ly! twelve-to-one victory was offset by Junior's hard fighting, though the
fl former outweighed our men fifteen or twenty pounds to the man. Stell,

the game the opposing men displayed a great deal of unnecessary rough-
i ness, for which they were heavily penalized.

Junior Vs. Handley
Worth Field, November 3, 1926.
UNIOR defeated Handley badly in this game, Handley never getting
near the Victor's goal. Junior's backs had an easy time going through
holes made in Handley,s rugged defense, and Stell on a twenty-yard end
run made Junior's first touchdown. From then on the game consisted
of marches up the field with the ball in Junior's possession. Jordon prob-
ably showed the most speed and alacrity, although Brown, returning a
punt Hfteen yards, also ran for a touchdown. Captain Ankele and Bass
were defensive stars.
Junior Vs. Plano
W0-rfb Field, November 11, 1926.
HOUGH the game was played on Armistic Day and our boys left
Junior feeling very patriotic, they were defeated fifteen to six by the
Plano team. Junior scored early in the iirst when Bransford, on a fake
end run, made a touchdown. In the second half, Junior was weakened
fatally when Bransford was carried injured from the field. Jordon made

several gains, but Junior did not seem to have the necessary enthusiasm
to put the ball over. In the meantime Plano had succeeded in making
a touchdown and also a field goal, scoring again just before the final
Whistle ended the game.
Plano showed great hospitality when they entertained seventeen Junior
boys that made the trip.
Junior vs. Diamond Hill
Worth Field, November 18, 1926.
N THE deciding game of the season, and the one in which Junior paid
off a long owed grudge to Diamond Hill, the inal score was forty-six
to seven, with Junior at the long end of the score. Junior kicked oif to
Diamond Hill and the latter was held for downs. After that the game
was played with Junior in possession of the ball the greater part of the
time. The offensive Work of Jordon and Bransford stood out for the
victors, the light Junior line holding Diamond Hill to three first downs
the entire game, none being registered the second half.

gg WON,T marry him, and you can't force me to,', cried Thelma,
rising angrily from her chair. Thelma's parents had been trying
to persuade her to marry Jimmy Randall, a young doctor who was
in love with her. Thelma thought she did not love Jimmy, because he
was countrified. Jimmy was a little contrified, but he was a plodder
and had a good future as a doctor.
'T11 marry when I get good and ready, besides, I'm tired of hearing
what a good husband he'd make for me," Thelma went on.
"But it's for your own good," insisted her mother. "Jimmy is a
good boy, and it's time you were getting married to someone."
"Well, I don't care," stated Thelma, as she walked out of the room.
That night Thelma started packing her clothes. She had determined
to go to New York and support herself. She had just a few dollars more
than her train fare would cost, but hgured that she could find a job
before she used all her money.
When Thelma arrived in New York, she rented a small room and
started out looking for employment. For several weeks she worked as
an extra in department stores on pay that was just barely enough to
support her. Then came a time when she could get no work at all. She
tried all of the stores for a week, and on Saturday evening came home
discouraged. Thelma started to cry. All her money was gone and the
room rent was due. She knew that Mrs. Murphy would not let her stay
a day overtime. Thelma thought of going home, but decided that she
would rather die than go back home and admit that she was unable to
Finally Thelma made a decision. She decided to end it all and have
nothing to worry about. She went to the door, locked it, and then went
to the gas jet and turned the gas on. She then sat down in her chair
and waited. She began to wonder how long it would be before she

It was then that Thelma realized that she didn't want to die, that she
wanted to go back home, and, last of all, that she loved Jimmy. She
tried to get to the door to open it, but it was too late. She fell back

When Thelma opened her eyes, she was looking at a white ceiling,
and, by the odor of many kinds of medicine, realized that she was in
a hospital. Then she heard someone say, "Thank God! She is conscious."
Thelma turned to look, and there was Jimmy.
"Why-why, Jimmy! I-Iow did I get here?', Thelma asked.
"They brought you in last night," replied Jimmy. "Your landlady
found you almost dead. I happened to be on duty so I was assigned to

still love me, don't you, Jimmy?"
"Of course I do," replied jimmy. "Thais why I came to look for
you, and as soon as you have recovered from that gas, we're going back
home to get married."
"Just as you say, dear," replied Thelma as she dropped off to sleep.
PICKWICK CLUB PRIZE SHORT STORY
WIDQW FLANAGAN? CHICKENS
BY JOHN HAMNIOND
N TI-IE outskirts of a large Eastern city there lived a widow. I-Ier
husband had died about a month before, leaving her in desperate
straits. She was known locally as "W7idow Flanaganf, and every-
one admired her because of her amazing courage and thrift. Although
her husband had left her penniless, the widow managed by washing
clothes and sewing to earn a scanty living for herself and her eight
One day she was on the verge of utter despair, her customers had quit
her and she found it hard even to earn enough for her meals. Glancing
over the paper, she saw an advertisement in large letters-'tBaby Chicks,
Ten Cents Each." This set her to thinking. Her neighbor, Mrs. Mc-
Carty, had made a glorious success of the poultry business, why could
not she? After borrowing the money from a neighbor too kind hearted
to refuse, she sent ten dollars to the chick farm.
In the course of a week they arrived, a scraggly, weak and peeping
bunch of chicks. Widow Flanagan was not to be discouraged by outward
appearances, however, and set to work the moment they arrived, making
coops, pens and feeders.
Disaster soon began. Rats carried off several chicks, and the Widow
Flanagan immediately set out rat poison, which failed to kill the rats,
but did disastrous work on the chicks. Five of them ate it, and, as a
matter of course, died. Her small son, Frank, succeeded in killing two by
P 'F ' 1 i 1 ls 15, Iii, 4 .H il ,frjs
stepping on them, and no amount of whipping could persuade him to be
more careful. Three died from the effects of a rain storm. At the end
of the first month Widow Flanagan was in abject discouragement. She
poured forth her troubles to Mrs. McCarty, who gave her ample advice,
but no material aid.
The chicks finally grew into pullets, and on one sunny afternoon the
Widow gathered her first eggs. Soon the hens were laying fairly well,
and Widow Flanagan, with the saying, "Don't give up the ship,', on her
mind, was encouraged tremendously. Her hopes were short-lived, how-
ever, the hens went on a strike, and no amount of feeding could induce
them to lay an egg. Mrs. McCarty,s small son, Sam, felt especially sorry
for the Widow Flanagan and helped her in every way he could.
One evening as the widow was on the verge of selling her hens, a great
surprise was given her, half of her hens had laid eggs that day. The
dozen eggs laid by two dozen hens once more made the widow's hopes
soar. She fed them all they could eat and on the following day was
rewarded with twenty eggs. The hens kept increasing their production
until they were laying one hundred per cent. Everyone was greatly
surprised because the widow's hens certainly were not the best in appear-
ance. But it was happening every day, the twenty-four hens laid
Mrs. McCarty noticed that her son Sam was absent from home every
day at noon. A suspicion formed in her mind and one day she followed
him. He went straight to her own hen-house, gathered twenty-four eggs
and deposited them in the widow's hen house. Mrs. McCarty was angry.
She found the widow in the kitchen, and was about to address her, when
the widow exclaimed, "Oh, Mrs. McCarty, the poultry man of the South
Side says rny hens are record breakers, and he has given me 3510.00 apiece
for them." Mrs. McCarty did not have the heart to expose Sam,s de-

Ever on my blinded b-rain the flare of lights, the rush and ery and strain 5
The engilze's scream, the hiss and thunder smite g

Faces that touch, eyes that are dim with pain,

Moves laboring out into the bourueless night.
So many souls within its dirn recesses,

AI-I, JOY IS SUCH A FRAGILE THING
ANNIE RUTH KIMBROUGH
Ah, Ioy is such a fragile thing,
A bubble light and airy.
The dust upon the night moth's wings
Elusive as a fairy.
Lille fleecy cloudlets in the slay
Or soft mist o'er a mountain,
A gorgeous rainbow flaming high,
The music of a fountain.
The fountain's music dies away
The rainbow soon will vanish,
The cloudlet passes with the day,
The mists the sun will banish.
A single touch, the bubble's gone,
The moth wings marred and broken,
The fairy flits away at dawn,
Ere mortal words are spoken.
Ah, joy is such a fragile thing,
A careless word will bruise it.
So guard it closely lest you fling
Your chance away and lose it.
RAYMOND W. DARRAH
The wild ducks feed in the marshes,
I heard them at dawn today,
The wild ducks feed in the marshes,
All -ready to fly away,
And winter is surely coming,
Though never a flake of snow
Falls on my garden blossoms,
For the ducks are gathered to go.
The wild duelzs feed in the marshes,
I could not number them all,
The wild duclas feed in the marshes,
To rise at the leader's call 5
So I kindle my hearth fire early,
For winter is on the way,
A snow storm sweeps from the Arctics
Ana' the ducks will be opt today.

it is keeping up to the minute in everything. S
And indeed, it is a great pleasure to see so many "Junior Hi" faces
daily mingling with our store crowds.

Do not conclude that our fashions are more expensive
just because they are more distinctive.
W'hile we naturally display many de-luxe fashions, a
bit costly perhaps for most women, by far the largest part
