We love this blessed land of ours,

Its wreaths of trees and fruits and flowers. Oh, fair land, Oh free land!
Its mountains reaching toward the sky.
Its noble rivers rushing by;
Its verdure fields that clad in verdure lie, Oh, fair land,.Oh free land!
Its sons and daughters love it well.
Oh, fair land. Oh free land!
Here rich and poor in safety dwell,

Sweet are the slumbers of a virtuous man. But catch him asleep on his work if you can.
Here's Julia—one look into her eyes, Confirms one's thoughts that she is wise.
SYLVIA RAINS-Beautiful and self-possessed.
She never knew, she always guessed.
Lovely and modest in her way, Industrious, whether at work or play.
Faithful and earnest in her work, She never did a duty shirk.
With the voice of a nightingale, Gentle as a dove,
Marian Danced into our hearts, Bringing sunshine and love.
Of such a merry, jolly spirit
Comes forth her laugh, you ought to hear it.
Maye Possesses virtues bright.
Which shine like stars on a summer night.
Though his young years make him much, much oppressed.
Still, he climbs upward with the motto,
Little but hasty is Ruby Ice,
For she speaks what she thinks and never thinks twice.
Genevieve's laugh is like the song.
Of a babbling brook as it rushes along.
He’s always in a cheery mood. For fun and music make his food.
Friendship is spoken in her name. And all her ways confirm the same.
Bessie’s voice is soft and low.
She always wears her hair just so.Scmur ffitatimj
Well do we rememl er our first day in H. S. Not daring to go up to the huge looking building alone, groups of threes and fours met on corners, and awe-striken slipped quietly into the assembly room.
The dignified Sophomores were talking to the teachers and upper classmen and seemed to have things well in hand. If we had expected the teachers or upper classmen to take notice of us we would have been sadly disappointed, for they left us entirely alone to speculate upon our coming hardships.
However things were not as dark as they had been pictured, for we soon held our new studies well in hand and were able to entertain crowds of eighth graders by reciting Latin phrases for their amusement.
As our class was not organized the first year we devoted our time to study rather than social entertainment. Although the leading parts in the High School play were filled by members of our class.
Thus comes our second year, and feeling our superior knowledge, we hastened to school to renew old acquaintances and talk over plans for the year.
We organized our class early this year and chose Sylvia Rains as president, and Louise Smith, secretary and treasurer, and now felt equal to any emergency that might present itself. We devoted our time this year to our school work and our social events were limited to participation in the High School play.
Early in the Fall of 1918 the Junior class of W. F. H. S. showed signs of awakening by meeting early and electing Harnett Jacobs, president and Don Jones, vice president, and Raymond Pittman as secretary and treasurer.
The first social event of this year was a box supper given by the Junior class, early in January. This was followed by a Fool’s party given in honor of the Senior class. But the crowning event of the year was the Junior-Senior reception, which was a social evening spent in the enjoyment of games, followed by an unrivaled banquet.
This year we are Seniors with Raymond H. Pittman president, Julia Mikalauckas, vice president, and Ruth Dillon, secretary and treasuerer. The first class to go out from the newly organize F. C. H. S.
We started our fun early this year by giving a truck ride to get acquainted with our teachers. This was followed by a farewell party in honor of the impending departure of one of our number, but as Frank decided to remain a member of our class we had our evening’s pleasure and did not lose our classmate.
Although we are glad to lie Seniors we envy the Freshmen with his High School life before him. We feel that we have done our part in making the F. C. H. S. bigger and better and we hope that the classes to come will not fall short in their duty.(Class nf 2ll
Ambition’s goal at last is reached.
And Seniors we are called,
While many a Freshman’s wistful heart Within our fort is walled.
And Sophomores pay tribute too,
While Juniors strangely stand Longing for days when they shall be The head of a High School Band.
Each of these stages we have passed When we were Freshman green Grand Senior-ship seemed far away. Though heights were dimly seen.
To which we climbed thru wisdom gained. When we were Sophomores With dignity and ease we learned.
Passing thru Junior doors.
And now this honored place we hold Well earned by years of work For, tasks so pleasant, yet, so hard We e’er refused to shirk.
Soon our beloved school we leave.
To which thots e’er will cling,
“Dear Alma Mater F. C. H. S.”
—Our hearts will always sing.8 rmor (Class JJrnphrrii
It was a hot afternoon in the summer of 1928 when I, in pensive mood
“sought to drive away The lazy hours of peaceful day,” by going to my “retreat” on the banks of the brook, in the wood neai my home, where I loved to indulge myself in the luxury of undisturl ed leisure.
1 took some needle-work and a daily paper with me—from force of habit - but I was not in a mood to work, or to read. Feeling drowsy, I lay on the grass, watching the water flow by while waiting for it to lull me to sleep. The genial influence of the time and place, combined with my mood to revive in memory some of the most pleasant experiences of my life— those associated with the Frankfort High School Days.
I fell asleep; unbridled Fancy led me through Dreamland. In happy idealization I met each member of F. C. II. S.’s brilliant class of ’20. Incidents of their g'orious records were recalled; their present attainments were revealed; and glimpses of their rose and amethyst futures were accorded me. I tell this experience that you may share the joy afforded by knowing of the work and worth of our classmates.
I was transported to the midst of a crowd of busy people on a great aviation field. I heard a fimaliar voice. I looked al out and despite his portliness, and his air of confident assurance as he issued orders and directions to hundreds of workmen, I recognized Conrad Ellis. Upon inquiry I learned that he had not changed his mind about being an M. D. or changed his plans either. But that he became a doctor, and contrary to practice, it was not his mistakes, but his efficiency which defeated him. He had effected a cure for every known disease, and was now led by the spirit of initiative into the unconquered aerial wor’d. For some reason which, doubtless none but the geds can explain, with Conrad in mind, thoughts of Ruby came. And not daring to dissociate Ruby and Genevieve I was gratified by a vision of them as most capable teachers in our alma mater—Ruby teaching Latin, and Genevieve teaching English. But Genevieve told me that much of her time was spent in trying to suppress the mumbled half whispered tone of “amo, amas, amat; amo, amas, amat,” which the pupils brought like a contagion from the Latin room: Ruby said, however that her greatest teaching problem was to overcome some measure of the dramatic tendencies developed in the English classes, that instead of doing the necessary drill and routine work, the Latin students were prone to follow Genevieve’s directions to “impersonate,” to “relive” and to “make their own” even amo, amas, amat.
1 was next in a large church, the bigness, the beauty, and rich suggestiveness of which inspired both awe and reverence. The feeling of strangeness which I experienced at first was soon dispelled by familiar music, wonderously rendered, for none other than Ixmise Smith presided at the great organ, while Marian Kelly’s trained voice attended its measures slow and high. Later when I went to speak to the “girls,” Louise exclaimed with her old time fervor, “My John! where did you come from?” AndMarian’s melting smile and unfeigned joy at seeing me told me plainly that personality was among the talents which had won them recognition as musical artists.
Louise insisted that we had time for a little gossip, and that she must tell me about the attainments of Raymond Pittman and of Thelma Jones. Raymond was a noted architect, and Thelma was a COMPELLING, professional reader. That both of them, after enjoying a breadth of experience, fame and friends had decided that “old things ARE best.” They had l een quietly married and after having toured the world, they, from choice, went happily home to Frankfort.
Harriett Jacobs, bless her honest heart, had frankly asserted that she was shocked by Raymond’s marriage, but in face of the facts, she was glad that Thelma was his choice. Harriett had given herself with absolute abandon to scientific investigation, hoping to work out a remedy for all social maladjustments.
Then wonder of wonders, I was in Modeste’s Shop in New York, and Ressie Howells came forward to meet me. She was leading Sylvia Rains, who was dressed in a marvelous “creation” of ermine, which they said was an opera cape. Bess told me that she owned the establishment; that she did dress design work; and that Sylvia was her ’most perfect mode1. 1 felt the kind of surprise one experiences when one reaches an unexpected denouement in the last line of a novel, and I had to admit that it was a natural and an appropriate expression of their native abilities and studied practices.
Mave Parker, contrary to all prophecy and plan, had been literally carried away by her partner. And their interest in America’s biggest business —the making of a real home and the training of efficient citizens was inspiring. Maye is happy in her choice of “values” (?) and the world has profited.
Next I found myself speeding up Fifth Avenue in a limousine with Ruth Dillon while she poured into my attentive ear her proofs of the fact that dreams do come true. For now, she was being solicited from all parts of the country to lead an educational campaign, designed to inspire an appreciation of the value of Aesthetic influence in enhancing popular life, and advancing civilization.
Julia Mikalauckas was presented to my mind as president of Wellesly Col'ege—my congratulations were abundantly extended to the l oard of trustees upon their choice.
Frank McAuley had already attained success and a fortune, cartooning. He lived as a gentleman of leisure in millionaire row in Pasadena, Cal-ilornia. and just drew pictures when he pleased to entertain himself by gratifying his native love for the satirical by showing us “what fools we mortals be.”
1 awoke to find that it was not all a dream, and I resolved to call a class meeting that in open day wakefu'ness we might compare our advancements and possibly accelerate our progress toward our Castles in Spain.Senior Will
WE, the members of the Senior Class of Nineteen-twenty, of the city of West Frankfort, state of Illinois, being of sound mind, on this, the eighth day of January, Nineteen-twenty, do make our last will and testament.

On August 21, 1917, forty-six trembling Freshmen approached the High School. Twenty at the Heights and twenty-six at West Frankfort. Thus l egan our acquaintance with H. S. life. Through failure, marriage and other like epidemics we lost a large percentage of our class during our Freshmen year. •
In 1918 we again entered our respective schools, not as Freshmen, but Sophomores. We gained four members and lost five. One of our number fiailed in the final “exams” and so chose to remain a Soph.
In 1919 our Community High School wras organized and we enrolled joyfully as Juniors. Five from the F. H. H. S. and eleven from the W. F.
H. S. Paul Cox of Carbonda’e and Williams Howells of Marion thought they could find no better school, so they enrolled with us. We passed our first semester exams O. K. After our Christmas vacation Jennie Roe, of Herrin, l ecame a member of our class. Pauline Darnell was compelled to leave us this year on account of illness in her family. We have lost no other member and we feel that our class of nineteen meml ers with Mr. Pyatt as advisor can compete with any.(Tnaatfl to thr Juniors

Early in the golden month of September, in the year 1918, the class of ’22 entered high school as Freshmen. Though we were not then all one big class as now, since forty of us were West Frankfort High School Freshmen and almost twenty of us Freshmen at Frankfort Heights, we were alike in that all the upper classmen voted that we were the greenest Fresh-ies yet. Oh! How they enjoyed our blunders and how many times did we say “guess they were Freshmen too, one time.” Finally we conceived the idea that our superior classmen, envious of our good looks and goodly numl er wished to discourage us, so we decided then and there that they should be the discouraged ones. And we were comforted by our knowledge of the fact that only green things grow.
In less than a month we boasted not only greatness in numl)er but also greatness in intellectual power, for we had learned that the X’s and Y’s in algebra were not so mysterious and allusive as they had one time seemed, and proud of our knowledge of Latin we puzzled our younger brothers and sisters by repeating to their dismay “Es puer malus” or “Amo puellam bonam.” While from our English class we had the promise of several brilliant writers in days to come.
Our class also did its share in furnishing talent for society programs and other entertainments.
We of the West Frankfort School were engaged in a very interesting contest during the second semester. It was carried on between the two divisions of the English class. Class A won and was delightfully entertained by Class R at a theatre party. The play “Les Miserables” was enjoyed by all.
At the Heights we first began to realize that we really were a class when the second week of school we had a party. Yes, it was a sure enough party with games, and jokes, and then refreshments; we avoided the possibility of the rest of the school stealing our ice cream by invitnig them to come, too.
School had not been in session many weeks when suddenly we were told that it was to be closed on account of the “flu.” When the ban was finally lifted and we returned to school again we found that we, with other classes had suffered a loss in number.
So the year passed and most of us rode softly over the waves of Freshmen trouble, meeting and bravely over-coming the tempests of semesterexaminations and at the end of the year anchored safely in the Sophomore port.
In the autumn of 1919 we enrolled as Sophomores in the Frankfort Community H. S. Although a few had been taken from our class others were added.
Our first social event of the year was a Sophomore Class party. Games were played and a pleasant time was enjoyed by all present. Our ice cream was stolen, but, heroically, we rescued it and, on this account, enjoyed the refreshments all the more.
This year we feel very wise, holding the Freshmen in complete subjection at our feet. Besides our ability to study, (for we have lost none of the brilliancy of last year) we boast superiority in athletics. The school basket ball team is made up large’y of members of the Sophomore class and the rest of us, loyal to our valiant players, cheer them on by rooting vigorously. We are the life of the school, for without the witty Sophs, F. C. H. S. would be dull indeed.
Taken altogether, we are the wittiest, brightest, and best class in Southern Illinois and bid fair to make a remarkable record throughout our Junior and Senior years'.
—LEILA MARTIN.(Clasfi of '22
Interesting facts I could tell a-plenty Of the Sophomore class of Nineteen-twenty,
Witty, industrious, true,
Hut on this theme I need not dwell,
For only a word or two will tell Its virtues are not few.
Last year we started as Freshmen green,
Our record fair, remained to he seen.
Curiosity was our forte,
But soon we boasted a star latin class.
And at the end of the year we had a pass To enter the Sophomore porte.
This year they call us wise Sophomores,
Oh! how we study to open the doors To the Juniors’ Promised Land.
Their tasks are easy, and we are told Like a wise man, who works for and finds pure gold In dignity we shall stand.
Another bright evidence of our rise You’d perceive if once you heard our cries Of triumph in basket ball.
Our team, we claim, is the strongest yet,
And this is the goal which it has set To improve mind, body, all.
So onward! through History, ancient and dim.
Hail Caesar! and gladly march with him Throughout the Gallic War,
Geometry, English, Bookkeeping dry,
Our interest in them will keep up if we try To glimpse that day afar.
When as Seniors of ’22 we shall feel That life is earnest, “life is real,”
Our first lessons ended,
And to F. C. II. S. will always be given Our hearts, loyalty, and faith unriven
To our teachers, affectionate unblended.

I wish’t I was a Senior
They never have to study much,
Or sit up writing themes and such, Wish’t I was a Senior,
I wish’t I was a Senior, cause.
If things go wrong, they do not wail. And to recite they never fail.
Wish’t I was a Senior.
I wish’t I was a Senior,
For when exams come looming near. They never have a qualm or fear.
Wish’t I was a Senior.
I’d like to be a Senior, my!
And when a Soph came up the stair I’d just give him the senior stare. Wish’t I was a Senior.
I want to be a senior, gee!
They look so dignified and tall,
And make the Sophs seem, oh so small Wish’t I was a Senior.
1 wish’t I w as a Senior when Dear graduation comes around.
And wear a nice gray cap and gown.
Oh! I want to be a Senior.

Oh, Lawdy I’m a Freshie,
Won’t you answa this one prayer?
That I’m about to utter.
In my humble despair?
Ya know, I jist can’t help it Cause I can’t get algebree,
And I always say its postive When uv course it negiteeve.
And I just can’t solve equations Nor multiply or add,
And I pray me destination Will tend to make me glad.
But Oh! that ofTul l atin Has creeped upon my mind,
I had just as soon try tatin’
A beauteeful design.
I say the case is genitive And uv course 1 ort er know That it can’t be the subjective Or the noun or—oh, by gee,
I knowed all time what it wuz.
Well I’ve forgotten already.
Oh, T awdy, won’t you say What makes my mind unsteady? Hurray! Hurray! that’s off for a while, But Oh, here comes that English “The Lady of the Lake.”
An’ every time I think uv it It always makes me shake.
I nearly shake my shoes off,
And stockings, too, I say Oh’ Lawd don’t make me holler With that physiographee,
About the earth, air, and solar System—can’t you see?
And the stuff that makes areisian weils And all that awful bosh.
It’s ’nuff to make me to rebel And say bad things, by gosh!
1 liked to forget my teachers,
Please make ’em step around Git ’em not to scold and frown For every lettle sound,
And now help me, oh, dear Lawdy.
In all of my despair And to me don’t be fraudee,
Is the Fresshie’s prayer.
Amen. SEIMER ESTES.Vernalee Burpo Alary Cummins Hazel Downs

These eleven joined the ranks of the Freshmen at the beginning of the second semester, coming from the West Frankfort Public schools. Inez Carr from Orient, Noble Stewart from the Joiner school, Lillian Wicker from the Heights, and Gladys Dale, complete the list of “Half Freshies.”
We are not so different from other Freshmen for we, in our confusion over “passes” and finding classrooms, furnished the usual amusement to the older students. Only a few days were we conspicuous for our greenness —now we are liecoming conspicuous for our superior ih-tellect, one of our members having passed the highest comprehension test in the school. Watch us these next three years.4TSwtal Enputfi
On September twelfth the Seniors who had determined among themselves “to make things go” this year went on a truck ride to Marion. The teachers seemed to enjoy themselves very much and they especially enjoyed the “eats,” prepared by the Senior girls.
On September nineteenth the Juniors not to be outdone by the Seniors planned a party. They were kind enough to invite the Seniors to this affair and of course Seniors never refuse so it all ended in “rain” brick cream and nut cake.
Then on October twenty-third the wise old Sophs planned a truck ride but owing to the rain the truck ride was turned into a party. They had their ice cream stolen. We wonder who did it ? ? ? J ! !
On December eighth Frank McAuley gave out the information that we would soon be minus one Senior. We gave him a farewell party at Sylvia Rains’ home, but Frank is still with us. We wonder why?
Then the Junior class exhibited their talent in a play at the H. S. building. It was decided that Helen Ilurpo would make a good housemaid if her services could be secured.
Near Christmas the Juniors gave a party at the home of Sylvia Griffin which was attended by part of the Senior class and many young people not in F. C. H. S. The guest of honor was Miss Esther Hart who is attending Lindenwood College this year.
Then on March sixteenth the Juniors had a box supper to increase their finances and they were loyally supported by all classes and a good time enjoyed by all present.
To follow—Faculty banquet; Junior-Senior inception; Class parties.(Urrarrnt” fcoriftij
Under the principalship of Mr. C. E. Allen the school was organized into two societies, the Herculean and Illini. The purpose of these societies was to help in speaking in public.
The following year the two societies were re-organized with some new members. Alxmt four or five months of school had elapsed and everything had gone well until one beautiful Friday afternoon the Herculean society was severely criticized, a petition was signed and this caused their disbandment. The Illini lived until the end of the term.
This year the societies were reorganized under new names, the Pershing and the Liberty. The teachers divided the talent as equally as possible. Officers were elected every six weeks. Several joint programs were rendered.
Alwnit the middle of October the students of the F. C. H. S. were divided into two groups, which organized into literary societies, one chosing the name of Crescent.
In the first meeting, officers were elected, as follows: President, Harriett Jacobs; vice president, Frank McAuley; secretary and treasurer, Marian Kelly, and pianist, Ixiuise Smith.
After rendering two successful programs the Crescent gave the Christmas program. This was very succesful because of the well-chosen numl ers. Rev. Story gave a talk, and there were seevral Christmas readings, songs and stories.
At the beginning of the second semester new officers were elected as follows: President, Maude Musgrave; Vice President, Noble Rains; Secretary and Treasurer, Paul Lawson. Louise Smith held her place as pianist.
The Crescent Literary Society has lieen of great lienefit to all those who have taken pail in the programs.
The other group was called the Star. The Stars elected Ruth Dillon for their first president; Luke Gladders, vice president, and Gwendolyn Fox, secretary and treasurer. The second semester they chose Helen P.ur-po, president; Bess Howells, vice pres:dent, and Helen Willmore, secretary and treasurer.
They have given many good programs, the members showing both talent and enthusiasm. The programs were beneficial to those taking part in them and were enjoyed by all who heard them.iTijr JFlaii (kora IBii
Along the street there comes A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums,
A flash of color beneath the sky:
The flag is passing by!
Blue and crimson and white it shines,
Over the steel-tipped, ordered lines.
The colors before us fly;
But more than the flag is passing by.
Sea fights and land fights, grim and great, Fought to make and to save the State; Weary marches and sinking ships;
Cheers of victory on dying lips.
Days of plenty and years of peace;
March of a strong land’s swift increase; Equal justice, right and law,
Stately honor and reverend awe.
Sign of a nation, great and strong To ward her people from foreign wrong; Pride and glory and honor—all lave in the colors to stand or fall.
Along the street there come A blare of bugles, a ruffle of drums;
And loyal hearts are beating high;
The flag is passing by!

When school opened in Septeml er there was some debate as to the prospect for a foot ball team. After a week’s recruiting and practice it was decided because of lack of material, to start with basket ball. The school l oard, which has taken quite an interest in athletics, rented a hall and we started work in earnest. Of the eleven men who reported there were only two who had taken part in H. S. basket ball l efore and those for only a few games.
In January “Hi” Rotramel was added to the squad and, with his height of six feet one inch, strengthened our team greatly. We didn’t win all our games, but considering we played the winners and runners up of the Southern Illinois tornaments we have done well. We lose Hi but the rest of the squad back and a few additional ones, our prospects for the coming year are bright.
At the Southern Illinois tournament at Herrin we were unlucky in drawing Herrin and were defeated in our only game twenty-eight to five. The team played a good game and was especially commended for its defensive work. The men all played good ball for their first year but several games were won by the clever work of Arty Martin, who will make all the teams “take notice” next year. The team was made up of Arty Martin, captain and forward; Noble Rains, center; Tom Blake and Eagle Gray forwards; Hi Rotramel, center; Jas. Rotramel, Paul Lawson and Veto Kreive-nas, guards. Frank Jacobs, Cloyd Thompson and Luke Gladders were always on hand for practice and will make the others work next year.
Our prospects for track are none too bright, when you consider that the boys have had no experience. We are counting on “Hi” to win several points in the jumps and with the aid of Martin, Blake, Monti and others we expect to enter the meets of Southern Illinois.
The work in athletics this year was only started. Our teams were not champions, but when we realize that athletics were really unknown and only started this year, we feel that it has been a success. Most of our boys are Sophomores and Freshmen and we feel that we have paved the way for Frankfort taking all championships in Southern Illinois in the next year or two.Haflfert iBall 8 rorr0

The biggest problem in life is to be able to save your money after you have earned it.—But that old story about not being able to save anything out of your pay is not true.
Andrew Carnegie said “A man who cannot save a litle each pay day, cannot do anything else worth while.”
What are you going to do in your old age? You’d better begin now, this week. Start a bank account—You will never regret it. Start your career right—A bank account will aid you.
