When we first spoke of having an annual it seemed like an impossibility, but work and will accomplish anything, hence this volume. We trust that you will read it thoughtfully, making due allowance for the fact that as I said before, it is our first attempt. And to the general public may this book give a more appreciative idea of our school, and to the Senior Class of 1921, may it prove a lasting and happy memory book of the days spent at F. H.

Wee little lass of the Senior Class! But Oh! My! she plays the violin and piano in a most charming manner. She also belongs to our D. S. Class, and if she lives long enough she will learn. As for debating she could convince you that this is the worst Senior Class that ever graduated, when we know positively it is the best. ISABEL ROBERTS BERNARD " I should ivorry. " Treasurer Class ' 21 ; Asst. Ad¬ vertising Manager of Rapa- hanoc. When you hear some one laughing in study hall you may easily guess that it is Isabel. She is just full of fun and was never known to worry over anything. When there is nothing else to do, Isabel has been known to study merely for the sake of variety. She was never known to miss a dance, and no wonder when you consider her popularity at these functions. II IMOGENE ESTELLE CARTER “Possessed a smile that never came of. " She is a dear girl, with extremely dark hair and extremely bright disposition. Imogene never has to use cosmetics or electric hair wavers, and as for her classes, just ask Mrs. Williams how she translates Vergil. The only thing 1 warn you of, don ' t, try to count Imogene’s love affairs. JOHN. HUNTER CHILES. “Nonsense from the top of his head up, and from the sole of his feet down. ' Dramatic Club; President Sig¬ ma Delta Fraternity, 1921 ; President Athletic Society, 1920-1921; Secretary Literary Society, 1920-1921; Captain Basketball Team, 1920-1921; Football, 1920; Athletic Edi¬ tor Annual. Good nature, common sense, ability com¬ bined, that’s John. He’s always ready to lend a hand, and has plenty of school spirit. If you want him at his best, get him in the physics laboratory. He always gets what he goes after, athletics not excepted. We expect great things of you, John. 12 VIOLA BEUNA CURTIS. “Never fail. " Viola is our fashion plate and the envy of us all; her greatest characteristic being clothes and beaux. She was the only high school girl that was able to “vamp” one of the Cul¬ peper football boys. As for French and shorthand she never falls below 90, and in everything she is right there. ERRATUM The positions of the two photographs on this page should be interchanged. ALICE JOSEPHINE DALTON. " Slow but sure. " Dramatic Club; Treasurer 1st High School; Presentation Senior Class. Jo was never known to be in a hurry, not even in physical culture, but she gets there just the same. Her standard is Ex. and she always reaches it and goes over the top without even the fussing and studying of other Seniors, and if Jo. gets 80, well, we all just know we ' re going to flunk. I JOSEPHINE FAITH FORD. “Laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone. " Almost any day you ' can hear old " Jo Ford’s " laugh sound through the school hall and continue until the second bell warns her to flee to class. She is our poet, and we have no fear but that her name will some day in the near future be equal to Shakes¬ peare’s and she will have made her much longed for career. EUNICE VIRGINIA GILL. " Paddle your own canoe. ’ Vice-President Class, 1920; Vice-President Class, 1921 ; Vice-President Conway Lit¬ erary Society. I his shy maiden comes to us from Stafford County, bringing with her many smiles and a sunny disposition. Such a neat little crea¬ ture you seldom see as this serious Senior who always looks as though the lid of a band- box had been raised and out she stepped, but Eunice does not fail to come up to the highest standards of the F. H. S. 14 mil LOTTIE RUFFIN GOULDMAN. " If lessons and pleasure clash , Let lessons go to smash. ' Who is that fluffy, powdered little creature strolling in school about half-past nine? Why, little Lottie Gouldman, our pet and pride, who always greets us with a smile. She says why study when you have sense enough to get through without it? But never worry, we are all with you. Lottie ' s greatest fault is her fondness for “Dice. " RUTH GOULDMAN. “T is belter to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. " Around 8:30 in the morning should you be on the mud bank overlooking the physical culture field, you could hear coming across the field the heavy prancing of little feet and see approaching our old “standby Ruth " plodding her weary way schoolward. Ruth may be compared to Washington “First in style. First in school, Never known to break a rule.” IS ETHEL MATILDA HALLBERG. " IVorlf is the best policy. " Assistant Editor of the Skylight. Ethel is our musician, as well as our stenog¬ rapher. She is an excellent student, a faith¬ ful worker and loyal friend. Although she is fond of chewing gum, she has never ob¬ tained the penalty of five marks for this pleasant pastime. Memories of her will be carried in the bear ' s of all her classmates long after being separated. CARL FREDERICK HAPPEL. " When duty whispers low " Thou must. " The youth replies, " I can. ' Secretary Junior Class; Presi¬ dent Senior Class; Editor-in- Chief Barioso, ’20; Dramatic Club; Manager Football Team 1920-1921; Valedictorian Se¬ nior Class. A shining star surrounded by glory both in his studies and on the athletic field, that is Carl. Ever since the first grade, Carl has held his fellow classmates spellbound at his brilliancy. He can say more witty things in a moment than most people can in a year. And last, but not least, the stage will miss a fine actor if he does not take up that profes¬ 16 sion. HELEN DORIS HART. " Eal, drin!( and be merry, For to-morrorv you may die. " Dramatic Club. Almost any day you can see old “Hel’ swaggering along to school or else sawing away on her bass violin. Helen is a good sport and is always ready to lend a helping hand. On a snowy morning she always rides to school in a Buick, and although she likes snow she is always partial to " Frost. MARGUERITE BURTON HAWKINS. " Fexv have borne unconsciously the charms of loveliness. " She is our beauty, and the admiration of the whole school. Her curly mass of brown hair creates jealousy wherever she goes. By her sunny disposition and captivating ways Mar¬ guerite always carries a host of friends in her train. Although she has so many charms don’t think for a minute that, is all, for she comes right up to the standard of F. H. S. 1 7 V " LEVIN JAMES HOUSTON, III. " His art is all in all to him. " Art Editor of Varioso, 1920; Art Editor of What’s What, 1920; Art Editor of Rapa- hanoc, 1921; Dramatic Club. Levin joined us in September, 1919, coming from Baltimore. In about a week ' s lime he had made a name for himself as an artist, actor and a musician. His favorite occupa¬ tion is drawing his favorite movie actress ' picture under cover of his book in class, unless it is talking to the girls. Work hard, Levin, and may you be another Harrison Fisher some day! HELEN HERSCHEL HUDSON. " She is as good as she is fair. " Editor-in-Quef “Jazzy Jun¬ iors,” ’20; Editor-in-Chief, “What’s What, " ’20; Secre¬ tary of Class of ’21; President Conway Literary Society; Editor-in-Chief “Rapahanoc, " ’21 ; Dramatic Club; Poet Se¬ nior Class. Behold we have with us our most prominent member of the F. H. S., the editor-in-chiel of the Rapahanoc, and the one we always go to for advice. Although she has a great head for business she is always ready for fun at the right time. The teachers have tried hard to flunk her so the F. H. S. could claim her for one more year. l8 GEORGE LAWRENCE HUNTER. " Be thpself — plain, impartial, true. ' Treasurer of Athletic Asso¬ ciation; Historian of Senior Class; Treasurer of Conway Literary Society; Advertising Manager of Rapahanoc. Whenever any business or anything requiring a cool head and impartial mind is to be transacted, George is sure to be called upon. He is popular with everyone at. high school, and has our best wishes that some day he will be the head of some big business. MABEL VIRGINIA KING. " Tal!( and learn. " Oh! girls! have you heard the latest news? We don’t need a newspaper when Mabel is around. Although she likes to talk she al¬ ways stands at the head of her class, and her classmates always come to her for advice and information when they are tackling a difficult subject. We predict a bright future for Mabel, and wish her every success. 19 EDWARD CHARLES KOEPPEN “He did nothing in particular, And did it lveil. " Football 1920-1921; Basket¬ ball, 1921. Edward’s smde is the most conspicuous thing about, him, and he is always bubbling over with good nature, and is always ready for anything. Therefore, he is very popular. He has shown great skill in both basketball and football, and made himself indispensable to both. His second best, friend is his guitar. NELLIE ELIZABETH LEACOCK ' “Perpetual motion Nellie, our prima donna of the K. O., is most accomplished and witty. She plays any instrument in the K. O., but specializes on the dish-pan drum. Everywhere and at all times you can hear her merry laugh and Hi there.” Nellie is a good sport, a true friend and an expert in Domestic Science. Nell, we are all with you. 20 EDWARD MOORE MELTON. " Never do lo-da ; what you can put off till to-morrow. " Football Team, 1920; Baseball Team, 1920; Captain Track Team, 1921; Basketball Team, 1921; Treasurer of Senior Class; Delta Sigma Frater¬ nity; Manager of Baseball Team, 1921. ' Corporal’ ' is popular with everyone, and it is acknowledged by common consent that he is quite brilliant if he would only believe it himself. He is not large in stature, but his quickness and agility “get him there ’ in ath¬ letics. To know exactly what he is like, you would have to know the way the girls ex¬ press their opinion of him, that is, that he is the “nicest boy!” VIRGINIA LUCY NASH. “She is lii(e unto a violet. ' Virginia, better known as Jinks, is the tiniest member of the Senior Class, but when it comes to mental exercise she cannot be beaten. This demure little girl has a ready smile and unselfish nature, and is a favorite with both the students and the faculty, and that means a great deal. We shall always remember Jinks as a bright spot in our school life. 21 LUCY DUNAWAY NINDE. " Do or die. " Basketball, 1919-1920; Basket¬ ball, 1920-1921; Fiction Edi¬ tor of What’s What; Music Editor of Rapahanoc; Saluta- torian Senior Class. We all know that “The Vamp " was written for Lucy to play, and when she does you think you could dance even in the F. H. S„ where it is written in gold letters " Thou shall not dance.” Lucy has an ambition to be an actress, and we expect some day to read her name in the hall of fame as a second Norma Talmadge or a Chopin. GEORGE COULTER PHILLIPS. " There map he heller looking men than , but 1 doubt it.” Baseball Team, 1920; Presi¬ dent of Junior Class; Captain Football, 1921. Coulter is an all round good sport. One of the stars on our baseball team, he is always ready with the glove. He was captain of the football team, and his good cheer and “pep” always spurred the other boys on to play harder. Last, but not least, he is an " ace” at breaking hearts (who could count the number of affairs Coulter has had since he has been in high school?) 22 ELEANOR GERTRUD E TURKS. “The early bird catches the worm. " In the fall of 1920 Eleanor, better known as “Purks,” blew in from King George. Thus united to our class after an absence of a year. Purks says, “No more country school for me.” Therefore, we can bet on her holding up our class standard. Studious is no name for her, for often the “midnight oil burns, but the result comes the following day when her hand is raised in response to Miss Rhea’s English questions. Good luck, old girl. ADELAIDE ROWE. “If I mill, mill, and if I won ' t, I wont. " Art Editor Jazzy Juniors; As¬ sistant Art Editor Rapahanoc; Dramatic Club. She plays, she sings, she draws, and many other accomplishments has Adelaide. She makes a fine, haughty, dignified, queenly young lady, as was shown by her role in the Senior play. When she sets her mind on anything she carries it through with great enthusiasm and success, but whichever way her mind happens to be made up, no cyclone could ever change it. 23 ALVIN THOMAS ROWE, Jr. “Strive to learn.” Business Manager of “What s What”; Treasurer of Conway Literary Society. While small in stature, Alvin is big in intel¬ lect—the lowest mark he ever makes on his exams, is 99f ' ?. Latin and French are mere child ' s play to him, and at the piano he is at his best. He also has an ability for act¬ ing, and dressed in a blonde wig and gingham apron he makes the most adorable little girl imaginable. JULIA MASON ROWE. " To Ifnolv her is to love her. " President 1st Year High, 1917- 1918; President 2nd Year High, 1918-1919; Assistant Editor of " jazzy Juniors " ; Manager of the Basketball Team, 1920-’2I ; Joke Editor of " Rapahanoc " ; Dramatic Club. If you want a good all around sport, Julia is the girl. When she walks up to school you hear “Hi Ju, " and then the rush begins, and the first one that reaches her first is considered the lucky one and is called by her “1 he dear girl” or " The dear boy. ’ Ju. is all right. 24 WILLIAM SCOTT RUSSELL. “Sometimes sit and thinff, Sometimes just sit.” W.ll lam comes from a family who have all been valedictorians or salutatorians of their classes, but I do not think William is so am¬ bitious. There’s not much gotten from read¬ ing, though, that he doesn ' t know. Keep coming to school with " pep” every morning, William, and you ' ll succeed after awhile. ELIZABETH EWYING SACREY. “All the world loves a lover. " Manager of the Basketball Team, 1919-1920. " Libber " has rightfully obtained the name of " The Vamp " with her wonderful auburn hair, and it is a known fact that she could give Alma Gluck a few points on singing, as well as Irene Castle on dancing. " Libber’s’ present fad is furniture, and her newest is the " Davenport.” With her many talents we have no fear for “Libber " in the future. “5 EMELINE LEE STEARNS. “Precious packages are sometimes put up in small parcels. ' Dramatic Club. Why should the Senior Class of 1921 rob cradle? But little Emeline is all right. We are sure that she will some day receive the highest honors of the world for her fluent h rench. She is an actress, too, for we never have a successful play unless Emehne’s black curls and dark eyes are there as the leading lady. BERTHA MAYNARD WHITBECK. “A stitch in lime saves nine. " H ere is a girl who is not a will ’o the wisp, but has a will of her own, and a sweet, one, too. Who can make a dress better than Bertha? Not only is she good on sewing but anything she does turns out a whooping success. She has an ambition to take up designing, and with her talent and persever- ence, we are sure that she will make success of it. 26 FIELDING LEWIS WILSON. " Isn ' t he cute? " Secretary Athletic Association; Football, 1920; Delta Sigma Fraternity. Fielding would rather make you laugh than be President. He just can’t help heing funny. Fielding and his books are not very good friends, until around exam, time, when he begins to brush up an acquaintance, but he always gets through. We would not at¬ tempt to guess his vocation in the future, but we wish him the best of luck in whatever it is. WILLIS TRENT WILSON. " O man, Tvhal a dancer!’ Football, 1920; Basketball, 1921 ; Manager Track, 1921 ; Dramatic Club; Delt a Sigma Fraternity; Prophet Senior Class. All that Trent has to do is to begin to talk, and everyone else begins to laugh immediately. His irresistible good humor seems to radiate, and the amusing little way he has of saying things that would make anything worth laugh¬ ing at. He is always ready for any athletics, and no dance or school party is complete without him. The best we can wish him is that he will always be as popular as he has been in High School. 27 RPvPRHPvNQC 1921 Class Cbentng program President’s Address Salutatory . Class History .... Song .

With the aim to gain a knowledge Of all we did not know. We’ve dreamed our dreams of greatness, We’ve labored, studied, and tried. Our class spirit undiminished. Our loyalty a worthy pride. Our Faculty day by day Has answered every call Upon their aid and wisdom too, A friend to one and all. We’ve reached at last our happy goal, And part with this endeavor— To finish the lessons we’ve learned here, Our face to duty ever. We’ve built our castles in the air. We have our hopes and fears. And many a dream and ideal, too. For the distant future years. Then here’s to the class of ’21, This wish I leave for you— That every one may seme day reach The land where dreams come true. 29 —Helen H. Hudson RFvPPvHPvnQC 1921 $)resiitient’£i HbbresS F RIENDS of the Fredericksburg High School, the Class of Nineteen-twenty- one welcomes you. We are glad that you are here, and we are sure that you are happy to be present. As you all must know, we have assembled here this evening to give you the most interesting facts concerning our class; in other words, we wish to give you a report of our activities, social and scholastic, during the four years which we have spent in High School. As you recall the closing exercises of other years, you probably expect this evening that our class will boast of its wonderful talents and merits. Such an atti¬ tude is sometimes considered out of place, but in reality it is an indication of the amount of school spirit that a class possesses. One of the chief characteristics of school spirit is pride in the school, and since in the Senior Class is found most that is noble, commendable, and praiseworthy, it is necessary to have a correct estimation of the class if one is to appreciate the good qualities of the school. Our class entered high school about forty-six strong and we depart with thirty-four--one of the largest classes that has ever graduated here. But it is not only in numbers that this body of students excels, but in every feature of school life with which they have connected themselves. During the years that we have spent here we have striven to benefit ourselves and to give what benefit was possible to our school. As to the former, we feel sure of success, for no one could graduate from this school without having first received incalculable benefit. As to the latter, we hope that we have attained success, but that is not for us to decide. We do not desire to boast unduly, and neither do we consider it such when we inform you that our scholastic standing has not fallen below the average but has even excelled it. Those who will take charge of the exercises which follow will endeavor to please you by further information concerning our class. And now, I leave the remainder of the evening’s activities in hands more competent than mine, those of my fellow classmates, who constitute the class of nineteen-twenty-one. 30 —Eunice Gill. RRPBHP rtD£! 1921 Salutatory Ladies and Gentlemen, Members of the Faculty, Fellow-students and Friends: I have been the recipient of the great pleasure and privilege of welcoming you here this evening in behalf of the Senior Class, and I earnestly trust that this evening will be preserved in your memory as a most pleasurable occasion. We know this is not so much an eventful experience for you, for many such celebrations have you witnessed; but to us, the graduating class of nineteen- twenty-one, this hour is one never to be forgotten—ever to be cherished. It is the most important period that we have yet known, for this occasion closes the founda¬ tional epoch of our lives. And yet, it is with mingled joy and sorrow that we part from our high school days, for hand in hand with the tears and toilsome tasks were the happy moments of mirth and merriment. New friends were created, old ones drawn closer. We were the tiny seeds in a great garden which had previously been tilled and cultivated and prepared for the planting of these seeds. Stop and think of the great promise which each seed held, the great possibility of the perfect blossom of the future. Just as someone has written: “A poppy seed—it lies in the hand, a grain of dust, motionless, unlovely, dead. Yet think what it holds: The cool gray-green of upward-springing stalks and leaves; the compact calyx, studded with its hundreds of protecting hairs; and within, crumpled like a baby’s hand, the exquisite, shining silk of gorgeous petals—sunset—rose, faint, misty, white, bold magnificent scarlet—all this in an atom of dust.” So we, with attainments, harbingers of better things, begin to-night the process of our unfoldment. We are the tiny buds awaiting the warm sunlight and the gentle showers to burst forth into manhood and womanhood. Entering this arena with the vista before our gaze our desire is that this manhood and womanhood may redound to the honor of the teachers, those painstaking gardeners who have cared for us in our growth, and above all may we be bright and shining lights for good and the uplift of humanity. But now, dear fellow-students, let us not be appalled at the duties awaiting us in the land beyond; the unfathomable region, for— “Through the deep caves of thought I hear a voice that sings: Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul. As the swift seasons roll! Leave thy low vaulted past! Let each new temple, nobler than the last. Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free, Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!’ 31 Lucy D. Ninde. RPvPftHfiriQg 1921 ? jtistorp of tfje Senior Class H AIL! the Class of 1921. A class of thirty-four persons whose history is as varied as the colors of the rainbow, and contains many exciting and interesting experiences a few of which I shall relate. Through these experiences and difficulties for eleven years we have studied together, always striving onward and upward, and struggling to live up to the words of our motto. We started on our long cruise togeth er, in the first grade, in the vear, 1911, with Miss Nellie Boatwright as our teacher, beginning with our A, B, C’s and finally reaching the stage of development in our mental faculties, when we could spell “cat” and “rat.” As the years passed we reached the fifth grade, where to our great sorrow we were separated, some of us going to Miss Rice and some to Miss Honey. Upon entering the sixth grade we were greeted by Mrs. Euliss, our friend and teacher, who always impressed upon us the fact that we were nearing high school, whenever we were wont to be lax in our lessons. I suppose she foresaw some of the trials through which we were to pass upon entering that unknown land, “high school.” When we started to school the next year, much to our joy we were again greeted by Mrs. Euliss, who faithfully drilled us for high school. The great day had come at last in 1917, when we marched down Main Street to our high school—the Hotel Frederick—a structure of brick, aged plaster¬ ing and other temporary features making it an inviting school, as you can well imagine, which recalled to my excited mind “1 he 1 umble Down Shack in Athlon. There was the usual rush of getting classes together, but here was a surprise for us, upon looking around the room to my great joy I recognized many of my old class¬ mates who had separated from us in the fifth grade. We were, of course, sneered and laughed at; called “rats” and the like, by the Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors; but little did they realize what the morrow would bring forth; to-night if any of them are present, (I mean the aforenamed Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors) I wish them to view the Class of 1921, and I am sure they will be fully convinced that we are the most brilliant and enthusiastic looking class that has ever passed through the Fredericksburg High School. But now to come to the worst part of our first day here, a day long to be remembered by our boys (I say boys because we alone suffered). Many a cry for help could be heard issuing from the freshmen being tortured in our “large and beautiful” playground. But what was the use—the seniors rocked our poor §]) RAPBHP MDC 1921 carcasses against Mr. Brawner’s fence without mercy, while our dear girl class¬ mates stood watching and pleading for us, but without avail, for we were in the hands of a heartless mob. Such was our initiation into high school. Mrs. Court¬ ney was our first year high school teacher, much to our advantage, as we have learned, because she first expounded to us the laws of a well-regulated school. One of our sore trials during our first year in high school was Algebra. 1 hat un¬ known quantity “X” puzzled our brains, but through the excellent drilling and teaching of Mr. Birckhead we fathomed the depths of our first year in Algebra and climbed to the heights victorious. Next year we again entered school at the Hotel Frederick, but this time under the honorable name of Sophomores. Mrs. Blake was our able class teacher. During our second year in high school we were kept warm and smoky by the so- called New Perfection Heaters. Where they obtained their name is a mystery to me and always will be. They are perfect in only one thing and that is to make one think he is in Pittsburgh or some other smoky place. Our lives were saved from suffocation by the janitor that year. He left one burning accidentally and it ex¬ ploded, to our great relief. So our joys and trials by water and fire were over for one year, and again we found our classes together and ready to start anew our Junior year at the Hotel Frederick where we remained till we were frozen out, and we then went up to crowd the elementary school, to our joy and to their sorrow. Mrs. Williams was our class teacher and advisor who helped us through many a difficulty. On one occasion while quietly studying, our class was quickly dispersed without the ringing of a bell by a peculiar odor issuing from the cloak room. Mrs. Williams hastened to investigate and found lying in the corner of the room a generous portion of lim- burger cheese. After some questioning it was found that the person responsible for the unwelcome lunch was Fielding Wilson. We were all amazed as Fielding was never known to talk in school, much less do anything of that sort. Another Link was added to our school chain and a good one, too, although he was smitten with a Payne, which affected him very badly and soon there were wedding bells ringing. We worked hard that year and when June came we had earned a well-deserved vacation and one which we enjoyed thoroughly. So another school year commenced and we returned to the elementary school where our class was together once more, but much to our sorrow Miss Conway was not with us. We have missed her greatly during this year and hope that she will be able to visit our Alma Mater soon. 33 RF PP l-mrtQC 1921 Miss Rhea was our class teacher during this, our last year in high school. Our hopes were built up and inspired by Mrs. Courtney who always looked on the bright side and told us that there were better things in store for us and we now know that Mrs. Courtney was a prophet and a good one, too. Now to come to the greatest day in the history of our class and in the history of the school; our grand entry into the new high school building of which we are justly proud. We hope that we will prove ourselves worthy of being the first graduating class to go out from this high school building, and we, as a class, wish to thank the gentlemen of the School Board for their kind endeavors to secure for us and the other classes which follow us, such a splendid school. One of the greatest things which has ever been introduced into the high school (and I now undertake to speak for the school in general) is the Department of Physical Education headed by Mr. Swem, our able director. I sincerely trust this instruction will not be omitted next year. Our class play “The Adventures of Grandpa,” produced by the members of the Senior Class, deserves mention as it was successfully acted and was enjoyed by a large crowd. One great achievement of this year will stand out foremost in our history. Ours was the first class to have an Annual. This was vigorously pushed forward by Mr. Link and it was through hard work and perseverance that we secured this monument to the Class of 1921. One thing cannot be omitted from our class history—among our fellow class¬ mates we have some fine athletes who represent us in football, baseball and basket¬ ball, and all other forms of outdoor and indoor sports. Those cold and blustery fall days when our faithful girls crowded the side-lines and cheered on the boys as they struggled to establish the reputation of the first football team of the Fred¬ ericksburg High School, will stand out in our memories, and be an epitome of the struggle before us as we leave the sheltering walls of our Alma Mater. So, in conclusion, may the Goddess of Luck bring us together in the years to come, stirring up ideals and hopes which were kindled by the kind examples of helpfulness and patience which our teachers showed us at all times. And in parting may I say that as my work as Historian is finished I hope that in later years the memories of our school days together will bring a cheery smile to our faces and a warmth to our hears. PARTINGS—adieus and the Class of 1921 departs. George L. Hunter, Historian. 34 RPvPftHPvHDC 1921 Senior Class iPropfiecp Enter Trent, holding in hand a stack of letters. Greetings— Trent —I’ve just come to talk with you about our class reunion. You know it’s been quite a while since we graduated from old Fredericksburg High School, and I thought it would be nice for us to get together again. ELIZABETH—Oh! how lovely! I’ve had letters from some of the class, but judging from the stack in your hand, you’ve heard from all of them. Trent —Yes, you know the first person I heard from was Josephine Barney. You’d never guess what she is doing! She’s practicing law in New York, and seems to be a very good lawyer. You remember how she was on that debate on immigration? ELIZABETH—Do I? Well what’s become of Josephine Ford? Trent —She’s working with her uncle Henry, at present. She came thru town the other day in her tin-lizzie. ELIZABETH--Well isn’t that nice! And tell me, what has become of the other Josephine—Josephine Dalton? Trent —She and Adelaide Rowe have become great prima donnas, and are at present touring Europe. ELIZABETH—And Trent,—did you know that Marguerite Hawkins is married? Yes, her husband is running a pickle factory in Fredericksburg. Trent— I suppose you knew that Helen Hart received a farm from her uncle for a graduation present. Well, she is having a wonderful time running her farm, and Marguerite tells me that Helen still rides to town in her buggy. And could you imagine Ethel Hallberg as being one of the greatest composers of the day? I was just reading an article in the Literary Digest about her fame as a musician. ELIZABETH—Well Trent—did you hear about Mabel King and Eleanor Purks? They have charge of a beauty parlor down in Richmond. 35 RPvPBHPvriDC 592 Trent -Oh, yes,—I heard about that, but I’ll bet you can’t guess where Nellie Leacock and Julia Rowe are! They’re running a sanitarium up on the Blue Ridge. Elizabeth—I always did think Julia liked nursing. She used to love to play “patient” in our nursing class back in old F. H. S. TRENT- And Helen Hudson is one of the greatest editors in America. She is now editor-in-chief of the Daily Star. ELIZABETH —And there’s John Chiles! Did you know that he and Emeline are married? Well they now have charge of the immigrants at Ellis Island. Thank goodness, they’ve at last settled that immigration question. TRENT —Look! Here’s a letter from Bertha Whitbeck. She and Lottie Gould- man are running a curio shop, dealing strictly in Orientals. ELIZABETH —Did you hear of Eunice Gill’s success? She is the leading surgeon at Johns Hopkins. Trent —Is that so? I always thought that child would be famous. But Isabel Bernard takes the cake.—She’s teaching classic dancing in the Cali¬ fornia University. ELIZABETH —Well, I can beat that! William Russell has invented a noiseless gun-powder, which he makes of saw-dust. And I suppose you knew that George Hunter is Secretary of the 1 reasury of the United States. TRENT— You win, Libba. But tell me, is it true that Ruth Gouldman is in the Ziegfield Follies? ELIZABETH —Yes she is! And Lucy Ninde has won great fame as a violinist. She is now playing with the Metropolitan Opera Company. Trent —Did you read about Coulter Phillips and Edward Melton in the Big League? They both pitch for the New York Giants. I see you have a letter from Carl Happel. Did I tell you I saw him last sum¬ mer? He’s Professor of Science at Harvard University. ELIZABETH —Do you ever hear from Fielding since he is Judge of the Supreme RPvPRl-mrtDC 1921 Trent —Yes, he’s living in Washington, and Edward Koeppen lives next door. You know Edward is a second Billy Sunday, and converts hundreds every day. And, by the way, I suppose you heard that Imogene Carter has gone to China as a missionary. ELIZABETH —Yes, and seems to be getting along very nicely. I understand that Levin is in Italy, where he is making a special study of classic art. Trent —Well, isn’t that fine! I also heard from Alvin Rowe. He’s President of the University of Virginia. And Virginia Nash writes me that she is teacher of modern languages in F. H. S. ELIZABETH —I heard about Virginia, but how about Viola Curtis? Trent —Why didn’t you know that Viola is owner of Curtis’ big three-ring circus? ELIZABETH —No I hadn’t heard of that. Well, Trent, I believe we’ve heard from all the class. All except yourself, —and Fielding told me of your success as traveling salesman for Liggett Myers Tobacco Company. TRENT —And I read in the paper of your being private secretary for the President. Well, Libba, I believe we have discussed every member of our class. Suppose you answer half of these letters and I’ll answer the rest, and tell them of our proposed reunion, January 2d. GIRLS cfiool elections BOYS Mabelle White. Quietest .Lee White Kate Gouldin.

Therefore — To F. H. S. we do will and bequeath 1. “Fussy Pants,” our janitor, so that next year every Senior may be reminded to “Wipe yo’ feet please,” before entering the building. 2. A physical culture “pen” minus the cows, barbed wire fence and male onlookers of the sophomore class. To Mr. Birkhead, we do will and bequeath I. A mint of money to supply the wants of the faculty. 2. One vanilla ice-cream cone as a reward for his continued though unsuccessful efforts to keep “those Seniors” in the straight and narrow path. To Mr. Link we do will and bequeath One curly brown wig to camouflage the bald head he has gotten from worrying over the annual. Eo Mrs. Courtney we do will and bequeath A door without glass panels so that her mind will be at ease should an unlucky Senior happen to come along and give it a bang. To Miss Rhea we do will and bequeath A talking machine and one record entitled “Hush, Be Still!” ( To be played during fourth English). 38 RPvPRHFvNDC 192 To Mrs. Blake we do will and bequeath 1. One yard of sticking plaster to keep Edith Janney’s mouth shut. 2. One dozen bottles of “Neroine” to build up her frayed nerves after the class of ’21 has contaminated her study hall for four years. To Miss Johnson we will and bequeath That good for nothing typewriter on the third table of the second row so that she will at least understand why William Russell could never average more than three perfect copies per week. To Mrs. Williams we will and bequeath A Virgil class without Carl and Alvin Rowe to exchange opinions and incidentally, blows, 1 o Mrs. Link we do will and bequeath One middle sized gas oven which will bake biscuits in from two to three hours. 1 o Mr. Swem we do will and bequeath A physical culture class who will grasp as he puts it, “The feminine accomplis hment of marching,” quicker than we did. To all the classes that come after us we do will and bequeath The keynote of our happiness, the secret of our success, the source of our inspiration and our most precious relic, the motto of the class of ’21, “Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow.” In testimony thereof we have set our hands and seals this first day of June, 1921. —Josephine Carter Barney 39 Fellow-Pupils, Men and Women: The parting of friends is the most living sadness of life, a sweet sorrow and compensation for which lies in grief’s beckoning toward better things. We are here this night to say farewell, to part from you and from each other, to say good-bye to friends. We have played and sung and quarreled thru the years, but we have loved and worked and hoped together. With one another we have struggled over the formation of Q, traced the curious curves of the Father of Waters, and were glad of the afternoon sunshine with its respite for play. We have heard the clock tick while with beating heart we fought the demon of forgetfulness and tried to be¬ come the hero of the hour in a spelling match, and on spring days we have trodden woodland paths in search of woodland flowers, that we might combine youthful theory with youthful fact. With flowing sash and freshly laundered blouse we have proudly trudged along the shaded streets of our town and thru the big arch of the cemetery on warm May days—our class. We sadly smile as we recall these incidents of our earlier years. These mem¬ ories were once passing incidents, living realities, part of our lives. The smile which they call forth symbolizes in the most effective the tender emotions within us this night. With less aid of time’s reflecting power to stamp the memories in our hearts, we have expectantly awaited the first question on an examination, looking at one another in dread, and on cold fall days we have heard the shrill cry, “Ready High School?” We have become talented musicians in a Kitchen Orchestra, and we have lustily sung the finale of a Senior play—our class. We have loved, labored, and won, but we have lived together. Tonight we leave one another, our first companions. It is our first parting of the ways. Though we enter higher institutions, tomorrow we assume the responsi¬ bilities of life, tomorrow we enter manhood and womanhood. “We will walk on our own feet; we will work with our own hands; we will speak our own minds.” It is the spreading dawn of hope, and as the light slowly breaks upon the plains of the future, we are warm with the expectation, yet timid with fear, and filled with sweet memories of the previous day. 40 Rp PRi-mrtDc 1921 The parting of friends calls for tokens, and a friend’s farewell gift is advice founded upon experience. Before us is Life, the four-lettered term of our present conscious all. What is it and how shall we deal with it Others have won, others have lost. What say they? “Life,” they calmly answer, “is you. You are Life.” We are further told that we realize that fact but do not appreciate it. Instinct answers in the affirmative, but experience does not confirm the answer. As we meet life’s many problems we shall look about for an ever-successful solution. Whether or not we shall try all other methods, and for lack of faith fail to see within ourselves the true answer to life’s conundrums, will determine whether we shall be successful or failures, whether the Universal Plan is true or false. We have often been told that life is what we make it. but more often have men struggled with life upon the principle that mankind moulds their existence without considering their own wills. It is the inexorable law, it is an old cure for an old trouble, but it is the simple solution. I he Great Law applies to us, class of 1921 ; we are masters of our fate. The individual is supreme in that he can determine the course of his own life. The individual is supreme in that it is his privilege to allow others to help him and his privilege to encourage others to help him—the principle of success. The indi¬ vidual is supreme in that he may effectively apply the laws of justice, labor, and love to his own troubles. The individual is supreme in that it is his privilege to allow others to help him and the secret of life are optional; they are given to those who do. To the individual has been given the privilege of casting his lot with either pan of the scales of chance. It is God’s own plan; it is natural; it is right. Lack of ability because of a lack of knowledge will cause a lack of initiative. We claim that we did not have the chance and that the world will not accept our services at their present value. We can overcome this handicap by bringing into practice a great law of justice (and of labor as well, for the trinity is inseparable) — do the right thing even tho you have been doing wrong; one more unjust action will always drag you farther from what you know to be right and what you instinctively desire; one more worthy deed will always lead you nearer. We allow opportuni¬ ties to roll by, we permit our troubles to augment because of a misconception of our ability, and we are weary idlers among the pilgrims along the Great Road. As temptations come to us, temptation to wrong ourselves, the observance of several inflexible rules can cast out this stumbling block to success. Do nothing which instinct tells you is wrong and which has been so proven. Perhaps the 41 RFvPRHPvrmC 1921 opportunity to gain seems so propituous that we permit an unjust deed, or perhaps we enter into such a project because we consider a former one as having succeeded, but we overlook the fact that justice is inevitable, that its times of payment vary, that value is given for value received. Perhaps the case requires one or a combination of the fundamental laws. Perhaps we must undertake worthy things even tho there is no present necessity; perhaps we must persevere; perhaps we must not carry out an undertaken work in such a way that there is an unfavorable reaction upon ourselves; perhaps we must do the right thing even tho we suffer thereby or receive no reward; justice done others will react favorably upon us. 1 hus we see that we control the making of our own lives; ours is the privilege to surmount difficulties by applying the laws of the great virtues to our ills; ours is the privilege to allow and encourage others to apply them to those ills, for only as we use them, only as we are just, energetic and helpful, will others be the sam e toward us—not by way of charity, but as a means of due payment; and the principle of success is that we shall succeed only as we permit and assist others to help us. How simple we find its workings after using the Universal Law, how difficult is life if we fail to have faith and do not use it. Men who have failed either had not the faith to apply it, or having applied it mistook the form of its reward, or did not have the faith to again try it upon finding its reward delayed. If they found that the less they applied the laws of justice, labor and love, the less was their success, why weren’t they convinced that they could succeed if inward effort were used in pro¬ portion to outward force? Those who succeed attain their desires only thru the Great Law; they wonder why some of their fellow-men do not try the simple method. Greatness is always simplicity. Classmates, let us go forth and meet the world armed with this old idea as an infallible weapon, protected by this two-edged sword of ever-new possibilities. Forewarned, let us test the effectiveness of this blade at every opportunity. We are impressed with the correctness of old truths presented us by their constant repetition or by their novel application, but we are convinced with their correctness only by a successful trial of their virtues. Forearmed, let us always use this weapon against our troubles, perseveringly if necessary, one-handed if we must, but ever faithfully. Now, classmates, the time has come for us to part. We shall meet as a class no more. The supreme moment has come, but we have lost while we have won. Let us go onward and upward, letting memories of school-days soothe us in our sorrow and inspire us in our effort. Friends, in the name of the class of 1921 I bid you farewell. 42 RPvPBHPvttDC 192 Wi M Senior Class l§ ong (Tune—“And They Called it Dixieland.’) -P _ K !v is V s _ 4 N f 4 a 71 w 4 4 l ; J — - W -n They built four Walls around a cozy room.

Elaborate Decorations Tuesday night witnessed an unheard of event in the annals of P. H. S., the first orchestra, given by Mrs. A. P. Link, I to introduce her Debutante “daughters” and “nieces” of the Second Year Domestic Science Class to the “giddy I whirl " of Fredericksburg so¬ ciety. Promptly at S o ' clock the or¬ chestra struck up with, “Take Me to that Land of .Jazz " and the eager guests listened to their entertainers while they I carried the audience from the sublime to the ridiculous. Not only were the ears obliged to remain alert, but the eyes as well, as was evidenced when the youngest member of the " Pender Family,” two feet in height, paraded across the stage up to the tallest, eight I feet in height, all bedecked in their gorgeous attire. In spite of the fact that some of the onlookers were forced to retreat to the rear of the room in order to share part of a seat with some one, “a most enjoyable evening was spent by all” and the guests departed with cheers for their hostess. “THE PLAYS THE THING” A new gallery of stars has appeared on the theatrical firmament. On March 4, the Senior Class presented “The Adventures of Grandpa,” with Carl Happel and an all star cast, imported costumes and scenery, chorus and ballet of Professional Beauties, under the direction of world famous producers. Such acting has seldom been witnessed in this city. It is eagerly hoped that a return engagement of the brilliant success may be se¬ cured by F. H. S. Perhaps our well known townsmen may as¬ sist the school in financing this undertaking. The Cast Grandpa.Carl Happel Tod Hunter....

In the first few days that followed there were many puzzles and adventures. The schedules were impossible to adjust, to go to the right classes was a task in itself, and the Latin and Algebra were worse than anything else. Mrs. Courtney was our class teacher and guided us into the right paths. About the time we be¬ came a little familiar with our new work, everything was upset by the closing of the schools on account of the epidemic “Flu.” When school commenced again so did cold weather, and as the heating facilities were so poor in this ancient and dilapidated building, we were marched off to the Elementary School, when the weather grew very cold. The Juniors were the first Freshmen class to take Exams, instead of monthly tests, and by the time warm weather came and we were settled again in the old hotel, we were aroused from comfort by the semi-annual and final exams. In September, 1919, we again assembled in the old Frederick Hotel, which was now becoming very familiar to us. The most fortunate of us claimed dis¬ tinction as Sophomores. The victims of the Exams were to repeat the Freshmen class. In that term we selected class officers and colors. We also gave the Fresh¬ man class a party, as the Sophs, had given us one in our first year. Mrs. Blake was our faithful guide and chaperone this year. In this term many boys and girls began to obtain distinction in the athletic field in basketball, notably Ruby and Ruth Dillard, and Alwyn Hundley, Jr. 1 here were also developments in the class rooms, some forged ahead with their work, others took life easy. In Novem¬ ber we departed with the return of cold weather for the Elementary School, and as the old hotel was condemned, we remained at this school until the spring term ended. Once more in the glorious autumn of 1920, we took up our work in the Ele¬ mentary School. Our class of twenty dignified Juniors is smaller than before. 48 RPvPBH Many of our old class-mates have left for causes. Some of the most prominent players on the football and basketball teams are Juniors. Those from our class in football are, William Morrison and Alwyn Hundley, Jr., the latter is now the Captain of the 1921 Eleven. They continue to gain distinction both through their victories and their defeats. There came a day when the classes of the F. H. S. met in a real High School. The new building is very magnificent and comfortable and is greatly appreciated by teachers and students. After three months of recreation from school duties, we shall return in the fall and take up our duties and make good our aim “to out-do the Seniors!” —Kate W. Gouldin, Secretary ANDC 192 49 RPvPBMFvMDC 1921 Junior Class Seniors are crying. Sophomores are trying Alma Mater for you. Juniors are W ording, Freshmen are shirking Come join in with us too.

Everett never will, for the first thing that impressed upon him the fact that he was a Freshman was that he was initiated by the school barbers, the senior boys. While the job they made was not elegant it was very effective because the next day J. Everette went to the barber shop and was shorn of his remaining locks. Nancy, poor thing, grieved over our one-armed chairs, not because they were minus an arm, but she wanted a desk instead. How can one hide candy and cakes in a one-armed chair? To so delicate a one as Nancy it is very necessary that she eat something now and then to sustain her, and if “now” and “then” happen to fall within class hours, why. That was bad enough, but Alice was in a still more deplorable condition. The arms of the chairs are on the right side and Alice is left-handed. That’s what you get for being left-handed, Alice; the world wasn’t made for left-handed people. Mrs. Courtney was our teacher, and she was always so reasonable and patient that High School wasn’t bad after all, and if anyone can make a lesson interesting Mrs. Courtney can. At first we were in the Hotel Frederick (now Hotel Maury). It was an every day occurrence for a big piece of plastering to hit some poor unfortunate on the head; indeed it was interesting to wonder who would be the next victim. Some¬ times our room was hot and sometimes it was cold, but none of us took these little drawbacks too seriously, for we knew that it would not be long before we would be comfortably ensconsed in our nice new school building. For Mr. Link, in algebra, we had to write all of the examples in ink. For Mrs. Williams we had to learn poetry in English and conjugations and declensions in Latin; for Mrs. Courtney, ancient history, and oh, the awful names of those old characters which we had to learn to pronounce! Mrs. Blake kept study hall, and she had a hard job, for that’s where we “carried on,” and received marks and lectures from her. 55 RPvPRHPvMDC 1921 As winter came on it got so cold in the school that Mr. Birchhead moved the whole High School to the Elementary School building. The High School pupils went from 12:30 to 5 P. M. because the elementary pupils used the building all morning. It was quite a novelty coming home in the dark on winter afternoons. Meanwhile our beautiful new High School was being built. The site was formerly a burying ground, and being so impatient to get in our new building made the time of waiting seem so long to us that Jebby declared that after the carpenters worked on it in the day time the ghosts pulled it down at night. During our Freshman term we never did get in the new school, and after vacation we started again in the elementary school building as Sophomores, with Mrs. Blake our teacher. When we walked into her class “wasn’t it a grand and glorious feeling?” Not many months, however, after entering our Sophomore class we moved into our new High School. Everyone was so pleased and excited. The library, which is also the study hall, is a large, pleasant room, with book cases, tables and beautiful big ferns. I must not forget to tell you about the Bible and Flag which the Junior Order United American Mechanics presented to the new High School. Our class was given the Bible to use. I wonder if Mr. Birckhead thought that we needed it most. Whether we do or not we are glad to have it. Old Glory floats gallantly over our building, and we take this opportunity of again thanking the J. O. U. A. M. for the gift of these two things precious to the heart of every American child, our Bible and our Flag. Our Sophomore year has passed, with its study and its play, its lights and shadows, its lessons, some hard and some easily learned, leaving in our hearts pleasant memories of the patience of our teachers, of the good-fellowship and cama¬ raderie of our co-pupils, and the affection of our own special school “chums.” It has been a happy year, made busy with study, lightened by a little mischief, helpful with lessons of perseverence, and beautified with friendships, which we trust will continue long after our school days are a thing of the past. We all want to meet again next year with the same old spirit of understanding, sympathy and mutual helpfulness. Until then. Adieu! 56 w RAPRHFvHDC 1921 Ikfjool lUcipesi Edith Phillips .

Treasurer tstorp of Jfresfjman Class W E all know the tendency of frail human beings to exaggerate their own accomplishments; but this class has resisted all temptations to boast, and everything here recorded has the inestimable value of being strictly true. When I entered the Elementary School in 1911, there were many whose names failed to appear on the Freshman Roll of 1920-21. We passed through the first grade without distinction, but our names were soon to grow in the annals of history. Maud Berry, Andrew Bolling, Muriel Euliss, Francis Gouldman, Virginia Gouldman, Margaret Tinder, and Anne Harrison Shepherd made the second and third grades in one year, gaining for themselves an enviable reputation. When we reached the fifth grade we were separated, forming two sections, 1 and 2. The first section passed through the sixth grade under Miss Maggie Honey, a worthy teacher; the second under the supervision of Miss Philpot. When we reached the seventh grade in the year 1919, Mrs. Euliss had charge of section 1 and Mrs. King, section 2. By their faithful energies, the following 6i RBPBHRHDC 1921 students reached the Freshman Class of “dear old F. H. S.,” 1920-21 : Andrew Bolling, Willie Curtis, Richard Decher, Alton Embrey, Richard Gaffin, Edward Gouldin, George Morris, William Leacock, Carter Rowe, Robert Sale, Edgar Stevens, Dennis Sullivan, Horton Vandenburg, Carroll Walker, Geraldine Ander¬ son, Maud Berry, Muriel Euliss, Virginia Franklin, Susie Greenlaw, Bertha Harris, Dolly Jenkins, Elizabeth Payne, Evelyn Sacrey, Anne H. Shepherd, Sarah Will- cox, John Allison, Gilmer Batton, Newton Bourne, David Burton, Horace Cris- ' mond, Alwin Fitzhugh, Cephas Freeman, Harold Green, Aubrey Jones, Randolph Satterwhite, Jesse Surles, Claude Truslow, Belle Bennet, Berniece Cable, Delma Clarke, Vivian Cussons, Virginia Gouldman, Mamie Gray, Nannie Warren Gray, Anna Page Green, Katherine McGee, Kemper Miller, Catherine Minor, Annie Myers, Florence Scott, Nellie Snellings, Audrey Stevens and Margaret Tinder. Here we met our new friends and classmates: Henry Chichester, Irvin Gallant, Russel McCoy, Margaret Brewer, Ella Olive, Florence Pancoast, Worley Hall, Delmer Snellings, Audrey William Jones, Richard Hallberg, Edward Layton, Thomas Morrison, Samuel Perry, William Ricker, Shelby Arritt, Leslie Mountjoy, Alex Gayle, Helen Hearn, Violette Mills and Grace Levy. The journey has been sometimes pleasant and sometimes wearisome; but we will remember only the delightful parts as we glance back over it. Looking into the future, we can see the word “Excelsior” which we have chosen for our motto. May we abide by this, moving ever upward each year until we reach the goal in 1924. And let us not stop here, but rather let each member of our class climb still higher and attain the highest possible success in whatever he chooses as his life work. —Kemper Miller 6 2 63 SEVENTH GRADE RPvPftHPiUOC 1921 H ebentf) ©rai)e OFFICERS Charles Hunter . President Marian Reed . Pice-President Thelma Moody . Secretary Emmett Thompson . Treasurer Class istorp 1 M September 1914 our class assembled for the first time. If one could but turn back the pages of our history to this, our first year in school, he would find en¬ rolled: Vance Dannehl, Webster Sullivan, Dorothy Boulware, Adelaide Herndon, Wilfred Embrey, Marian Scott, Casey Armstrong, Julia Frolon, Blanche Russell, Virginia Melton, Charles Hunter, Fitzhugh Rowe, Luther Dodd, John Maher, Duff Green, Warren Farmer, Emmet Thompson, Charles Powell, Wirt Shelton, Willard Downes and Bettie Billingsley. These twenty-one have managed each year to get “promoted” while about three times as many have stumbled into the paths of knowledge. Helen Van Denburg and Stuart Lesher joined the original Group in our second year. These two are an honor to our class, always making one hundred per cent, on conduct. When school opened in the fall of 1916, seven new classmates were added to our roll, namely: Elizabeth Cadot, John Stone, Frances Hicks, Edna McGaha, Mary Dunri, Alice Scott, and Fanny Scott. We thus acquired the “Scott Trio” and their cousinly rivalry is a source of much amusement to our class. Nellie Herndon, Grace Dunnington and Evelyn May joined us in the fourth grade, and Francis Howard, Marian Howard, Marian Reed, Mary Nussey, Vir¬ ginia Stevens, Earl May, Josephine Fisher and Maxwell Nash came to us in the fifth grade. 64 RPvPRHPvMDC 1921 Eight new boys and nine new girls answered roll call during the sixth year: Edward Gill, Louis Armstrong, Thomas Payne, Donald Whitbeck, George Bowie, Francis de Bruyne, Flemming Ray, Lucy Gouldman, Marguerite Stevens, Mar¬ garet Pepmier, Mary Daffan, Dorothy Daffan, Sarah Orrock, Elizabeth Stairs, Evelyn Sale, and Lemuel Houston who has the record for being tardy twice a day and is called the “ten o’clock scholar.” This year our grade was made a part of the Junior High School with seven new members: Edward Smith, Truman Carneal, Robert Kilian, Maimia Fowle, Thelma Moody and Florence Dalrymple, making our class number sixty-four. The saddest event in our school life was the death of Wilfred Embrey. The most important event of our school lives was moving to the new High School in the fall of 1920. We hope to go thru High School together and graduate in 1925. —Virginia Melton. 65 OTere ©ott Ctier 3n a urrp? Alvin T. Rowe, Jr. W HO the deuce is that breakin’ down the door?” shouted Harry Cuthbert formidably from his luxurious mass of pillows, sheets, and other bed- ware to the persistent knocker at his chamber door in a New Jersey college. It was Saturday and he had been trying to decide whether to get out of bed ever since half past seven. “It is I, the gallant knight of Earlymorn,” quoth the unseen visitor from behind a protecting door. “None o’ your cheap wit ’round here, if you value your life, young fellow!” was the emphatic reply. Th e answer was much humbler and more subdued, “Telegram, sir.” Harry answered not but jumped from his bed with the usual anxiety and curi¬ osity which we all experience upon receiving a telegram. He glanced at the clock which admitted that it was a quarter past ten, and barefooted it across the room to the door. “Le’ me see it,” he demanded. He quickly opened the envelope with hands slightly trembling, and these words struck his eye: “Am leaving New York for Europe at 4:00 P. M. today to spend summer. Wish you to accompany me. Fake next train if it arrives here before 3:30. Will meet you at Grand Central I erminal. Cannot wait. “Uncle Henry.” Harry was so stunned at receiving this from his rich uncle that he could barely focus his faculties into writing the reply: “Coming. Harry C.” This he handed to the waiting boy, adding, “Send it collect, and make it snappy!” H ow he had always longed for a glimpse at Europe—and now he was about to spend a whole summer there, if —things turned out right. 66 He jumped into his clothes, deposited all of his weekly allowance of four dol¬ lars in his pocket, and shot thru the door and down the steps, thru several long corridors, and at last out-of-doors, not stopping at the remonstrances of the professors and questions of the other pupils, for he was headed for the railroad station. After leaping over a goodly number of puddles from the ram of the preceding night, and barely escaping a collision with several citizens, he soon found himself at the depot. “Where—when’s the next train for N’york?” he breathlessly inquired. I he spectacled, old ticket-agent slowly, to Harry’s disgust, expounded that the next train would be the 12:05—the last one until after four o’clock—and it was now twenty minutes of eleven! “Well, gi’ me one whole ticket. How much? abbreviated Mr. Cuthbert. “Wal, wait a minute; don’ get me irated, now,” drawled the aged ticket- vendor. Then, after peering over the top of his spectacles at a table of rates for what seemed an age to Harry, he added, “It says here, three forty-nine fer one trip to N’yawuk, includin’ th’ war tax, excludin ' the—aw-uh“—here he raised his eyebrows and looked more intently at the list,—“what th’—oh, ya-as, th’ porter¬ age,—excludin’ the porterage, pullman fees, meals on train, an us—er- let’s see— charges—that’s hit—charges fer extry bag—” “Oh, all right—I know all about that—but gi’ me one. Get a wiggle on!” The old veteran slowly, but deliberately, turned around, rolled a crushing look of contempt at Harry, then regained his former position, cleared his throat, and began where he left off: “Ahem! As I was saying, —excludin’ all charges fer extry baggage an’ - Lissen, please; I haven’t even begun to pack my trunk yet,—an’ it’s very im¬ portant that I should make this train. Please gi’ me the ticket.’’ By this time a line of ticket seekers—impatient ones—had formed behind Harry, so the obstinate patriarch, after deliberately taking over one and a half valuable minutes of our hero’s time to decide which ticket to bestow upon him, passed the billet thru the bars with the change. “It’ll git thar at 2:13,” he concluded brusquely. “Next!” After breaking all pedestrian speed limits, Harry again found himself in his habitation. He had jammed the ticket and surplus fifty-one cents into his pants pocket, and was delving into his various drawers and other receptacles for the articles he thought necessary for his trip, when suddenly there was a knock upon the door. 6 7 RPvPRHPvNO£ 1921 “Come in!” he vociferated without so much as hesitating in his work. The door aimlessly wandered open, and a fellow junior listlessly drifted in, both as if they were wafted by the morning breeze. Upon seeing the conglomeration of paraphernalia scattered about the room and the open trunk, the inquisitive visitor casually inquired, “Whatcha doin’?” “Pullin’ taffy,—an’, le’s see, one pair pink striped pajamas, one pair o’ blue checked—” Whatcha talkin’ about—pullin taffy an’ pink pajamas?” interrupted the uncivil junior. “Where’s the taffy? Where’re you goin’? Want a stick o’ gum? —it’s Spearmint. “Aw, do me the favor of chasin’ yerself. If you’ve got to know, curiosity, its Uncle Henry an’ Europe,—an’ as I was sayin’: one pair blue checked stockings —I mean pajamas,—you worry me,—and where’d those orange ties go?” “Um,” continued our now quite interested newcomer, and not in the least abashed, “Europe and Uncle Somebody. My, my, how definite! Sounds inter¬ esting anyway. C’rp on, loosen up, what’s the big idea anyhow? I’m not good at riddles.” Harry stopped packing. My uncle, Henry Wellington Cuthbert, II, the namesake of whom am I, has decided to take me to Europe with him to spend the summer, because he liked me ever since I was knee high to a duck—also, because I named myself after him. And now that I’ve spilled the beans, if you don’t mind, old dear, you’re physically able to do me two great favors. The first is: please inform the dean and my several instructors of my circumstances, as I’ll have time only to let the dean know that I’m leaving. The second and most important favor is: beat it; or I’ll resort to force.” Harry soon discovered that he would, indeed have to “resort to force,” which he did, and was again in undisturbed peace. The next thing he decided to do was to change his apparel. Accordingly, he donned his best suit, only thrice worn before. A quarter of twelve found the huge trunk quite neatly packed, and the baggage men lugging it down the steps. They had placed it on the wagon, and Harry had started his promenade to the station, when the two men demanded, “Fifty cents, please.” Mr. Cuthbert nonchalantly put his hand into his pocket—only to grasp the lining and thin air. 68 After he had made a thorough search of every real and imaginary pocket in his suit, it dawned upon him that his fifty-one cents and railroad ticket were nest¬ ling comfortably in the pocket of his old suit, which happened to be in the very bottom of his trunk. “CENSORED!!!” ejaculated Mr. Cuthbert, who was quite perturbed, to say the least. The baggage men did not seem to be at all shocked or even disturbed at our angry hero’s language, but only insisted, “This ’ere cart don’t move, she don’t, ’till we gits our fo’ bits.” “But what am I goin’ to do?” entreated Harry, pathetically. “It’s in the bottom of the trunk!” “Sure, an’ we’re lavin’ that to yeself to decide,” was all the sympathy or advice that they lavished upon him. “Lissen,” began Harry a little more hopefully, “I haven’t got time to unpack it here, for the train leaves in less than fifteen minutes; but le’me go to the station in the wagon with you and unpack the trunk on the way there. It’s the only way, and a trip abroad depends upon it. How about it?” he ended, plaintively. “There’s a tip in it for you,” he added, remembering that the trunk contained fifty- one cents, and the drayage charge was only fifty cents. It might seem stingy, but this was a case of necessity. Upon the mention of a tip both of the baggage men agreed; so Harry leaped into the wagon and the party started merrily for the station. Now it happened that this was the very time when all of Mr. Cuthbert’s friends, both male and female, were returning from “down town” to the college for dinner; and it was fated that the hard-hearted wagon driver was to pass right through the most frequented streets—and so he did. But Harry had no time to let his mind dwell upon what people might think and say about him; he just threw things right and left, forward and backward out of his trunk. There was Gladys Lacey, his best girl-friend, being escorted by his rival. Snoop Edwards; and both seemed to enjoy the scene thoroughly. Now he passed his surprised Latin professor who had always been impressed with Henry’s quiet, bashful manners. Now the wagon was in the business section of the town; it was detained in blocked traffic for about half a minute, but in that time a rather large crowd had collected thinking, probably, that it was witnessing some sort of free show. At last the traffic was unblocked and they were en route again. 69 Now a traffic cop tried to pinch them for a triumvirate of lunatics, but an explanation released them. Finally, they were nearing the station. 1 hey had passed out of the business section and were driving by a row of apartment houses—in an instant every window was thrown open and it seemed that thousands of heads (mostly female!) were thrust out. They did not know whether the rapidly passing vehicle, pulled by two galloping horses, wherein a young man was madly chucking the contents out of a trunk, was some new kind of advertisement or the workings of a German spy—at any rate they were inter¬ ested. But, although our little friend Flarry was exceedingly bashful and hated publicity, he just buried his head deeper into the trunk--and dug. It may seem ridiculous that everything should have to be taken out of the trunk to reach the bottom, but the reader will please know that the trunk was very large and contained an extra tray at the bottom, in which was the desired suit. Consequently, it was necessary to remove the entire contents in order to open the said tray. Finally, however, they reached the station and the train was due in thirty seconds; so our desperate young gentleman got one of his chauffeurs to help him dump the trunk over, and at last Harry caught up the much desired suit of clothes. He took up the coat of the suit and reached expectantly into its inside pocket; it was empty! He searched fruitlessly every other pocket in the coat, and was about to give up in despair, when he remembered that in his haste he had stuffed the ticket and cash into his pants pocket. Now the train came rushing into the station, and stopped with the usual squeaks, wheezes, puffings, and accompanying noises. After a short hunt Henry Wellington Cuthbert III found the breeches and finally grasped the much-needed ticket and fifty-one cents. He frantically began to pitch, hurl, and fling the articles back into the trunk aided by the two slow and indifferent draymen. There were still quite a few things left out when the conductor cried, “All aboard!” “Not yet!” puffed Harry. But the train was already preparing to move. “Better shove ’er on an’ lave thim other things out, kiddo,” advised one of his assistants, sagaciously. Accordingly, Mr. Cuthbert made one last grab at the articles which still remained outside of the trouble-causing trunk, placed what he caught up on top of the already high pile of clothes—high because this last time they were not 7 o RAPPvHAHDC 1921 packed in such a space-conserving manner as the first time—and began to think rapidly how he could close the top on it. He soon solved this by persuading his obliging assistants to stand upon the trunk top while he locked it. The train was now moving; but the two draymen, now quick and agile at the thought of a tip at hand, shoved the heavy trunk on before the train had moved a yard, for the wagon was only about half a dozen feet from it. Again they de¬ manded their money. In the excitement Harry handed them his ticket and ran for the moving cars. But they immediately informed him of the mistake: “We ain’t a-goin’ to N’yawk—we wants that fo’ bitts o’ ourn! Whatcha tyke us fer?” Harry, confused, returned, recovered his ticket, handed them the half a dollar, and then the penny, shouting over his shoulder as he again ran for the now fast moving train, “That cent is only a part of the tip—I’ll send you a money order for the rest from Europe!” The last car was moving rapidly past. Harry Wellington Cuthbert III made a mad jump at the end platform. Happily, however, he landed safely on it, and staggered into the coach. “—and so I just managed to get here alive and that’s all,” concluded Harry, after having related to Uncle Henry, on their way to the steamer, his woeful tale of ill luck. “You are deucedly simple, ’Enry Wellington! W’y in thunder didn’t you borrow fifty cents from some one at the school?” admonished old Uncle Henry Cuthbert, irritably. “And w’y didn’t you jolly well wait and unpack the blawsted trunk in the baggage car to get your ticket? My word, ’Enry Wellington! you may be named awfter your Uncle ’Enry, but I’m quite inclined to think that my namesake does not take awfter me.” “Oh, why I never thought of that,” replied Harry, stupidly. Finis. i RPvPRHPvHDC 1921 ®fje Bittner Now as tradition of the school so tells Through many years it was the custom For those, whose race in learning was nigh o ' er To be given by those who well held second place A jovial evening ' s entertainment—a dance. This was the custom when Twenty-two came, Who always stands for progress; so it was That ere lime drew near to that occasion We found that certain wise men had forbidden That even the simple grape vine should be used. And being of a class which does not hesitate (For We believe that those who hesitate are lost) Many a council large We called — where. After much debating by those that love to trot The simple turkey, it was decided even this: That if the grape vine could not be used. Lot it could be — drunken. And even some thought it would be a kindness 7 o give those tired seniors one good dinner. So our illustrious class, seeing it was determined To have a dinner, started valiantly to prepare it. And when the day for feasting had arrived, Then came the seniors in vast and might hoards With ravenous appetites and joyful loolfs. And lastly came the dinner which was o ' erflowing With all good things to eat that do pertain to eating. The stars that in the evening heavens show Their glorious luster are not more numerous. Nor are they brighter than are the members Of the industrious and most famous class Who then assembled at that bounteous feast. The space is limited, tho ' our fine class. Just lil(e our possibilities, is limitless. Yea, long and hard those seniors did partake Till, having no more room for further eating. In many words—fine and gracious Words—told us With what success we had the dinner, Spol(e much and well deserved credit Of our most brave and cordial class Whose great and mighty thought it was that found The weal( point of the seniors—a dinner. 72 73 74 DRAMATIC CLUB Senior Class rpap (Tal(en from. the Fredericksburg Daily Star.) T HE stage ability of the dramatic club of the graduating class of the Fred¬ ericksburg High School had evidently preceded them, judging from the large audience which filled the Opera House Friday evening to witness their second presentation of Walter Ben Hare’s farce comedy, “ The Adventures of Grandpa,” in three acts. The play was originally produced as a small school sketch, with the idea of presenting it only once to aid in raising funds for the High School annual. I his was done a few weeks ago in the auditorium of Franklin’s School of Music. It met with surprising success from the very start. Through wise judgment or by chance, as the case may have been, each member of the cast was peculiarly adapted to interpret their characterization in the comedy. Fatent talent was discovered in the young men and women selected by Mrs. A. P. Rowe, who directed and staged the play, and to whom much credit for its success is due. With a stage presence and enunciation that would do credit to professionals, the nine members of the cast put over their lines in a manner that was most sur¬ prising, as well as entertaining to their large and appreciative audience. “The Adventures of Grandpa” is in three acts, and has a clever, as well as comic, plot. The play has to do with Grandpa Hammerhead, of Yellow Bud, Ohio, excellently characterized by Carl Happel, who visits his grandson, Monte Ray (Trent Wilson) in Chicago. Monte is supposed to be married, as he is receiving a liberal allowance from his wealthy grandfather on this understanding. The announcement of his visit spreads consternation among Monte and his friends. In desperation he borrows demure and pretty little Fucy Hunter (Josephine Dalton) from his college chum, Thad Hunter (Fevin Houston), who finally agrees to let his wife pose as the wife of Monte. Grandpa arrives and the ludicrous situations that arise as a result of the deception can hardly be imagined. Thad is made to assume the role of cook in the Hunter household, expecting “Grandpa” to leave in a short time. However, the real cook of the Hunter home is taken to a hospital, where her case is diagnosed as smallpox, and the house is quarantined and guarded by Officer McComack (John Chiles). Dorothy May (Adelade Rowe), a young college graduate, who is from Yellow Bud, now traveling com¬ panion with Mrs. Pansy Hopcoch, (Helen Hart), fair, fat and forty, are both made to remain in quarantine, while there to take dancing lessons, as well as Marie Ribeau, (Emeline Stearns) a girl from Paris, who is a dancing instructor. 75 r%w RPvPftHPvNDC 1921 Kloompy, (Julia Mason Rowe) ten days from Copenhagen, is a new maid in the Hunter household, and soon gets wise to the value of tips as hush-money. That night. Grandpa’s face is dotted with rouge by Monte, and he thinks he has the smallpox. In the end it is discovered that the cook in the hosiptal had only chickenpox and the quarantine was lifted, much to the delight of all. Grandpa was told of the plot to deceive him, but forgave Monte when he learned he was going to marry Dorothy May, a native of his beloved Yellow Bud. The cast was well balanced and had no individual stars. The young actors and actresses well merited the deluge of compliments paid them by members of the audience. With scarcely any previous experience they took a simple comedy- drama and put it over in a manner that held the closest interest of their audience, not once boring them with over or under acting. Judging from the liberal applause the play universally pleased. An added feature of the evening’s entertainment was a number of selections by the High School Orchestra, composed of Edith Phillips, piano; Roger Clark, cornet; Jeffries Chewning, trap drums; Josephine Barney, violin; Lucy Ninde, ukelele; Elizabeth Young, Coulter Phillips, Edward Koeppen, guitars. The orchestra showed the result of much practice and is a musical organization the school can well be proud of.

Well, I dreamed i was walking in the hall of fame, and just guess whose was the first statute I saw? “It must have been Woodrow Wilson or William Jennings Bryan.” No, it was neither of those; but the first thing I saw was the statue of Mr. Birckhead. It was a tall and stately statue with that ever enduring smile, wearing that same blue suit and winter hat, holding in one hand a Biology and in the other a book entitled “The Trials of Married Life.” As I walked on I came to the second statue, which was of Mrs. Courtney, dressed in her green sweater and brown dress, telling the seniors to copy all of their civics by to-morrow. The third statue I saw was of Mrs. Williams trying to drive French into the heads of the boys and girls on the back row. Then turning around my eyes fell on a statue of Mrs. Blake, standing with her knitting under her arm in the act of telling the cooking class not to make quite so much noise. The very next statue that caught my eye, was a very tall one, that with Mr. Birckhead towered above all the rest. Looking more closely I recognize d Miss Johnson in the act of writing her will in which she willed a dozen typewriters to the Fredericksburg High School, for which she had plead so hard while teaching in that school. And next to her I beheld Miss Rhea holding in her hand a long list of quota¬ tions telling the English class to learn them all by to-morrow. Then I saw a very peculiar looking one, it was of three women, holding a very earnest conversation, coming nearer I recognized Mrs. Euliss, Mrs. King, and Miss Gouldman, arguing should or should not the junior high be allowed to come to the third floor. 82 Can you guess who I saw next? Why, Mr. Swem, dressed in his white sweater and tennis shoes in the act of helping the girls over the wire fence, that keeps the cows in our physical culture field. I had seen all the faculty but two, and I was wondering, when suddenly in the very midst of them all I caught sight of a shining bright statue of Gold. I was rushing down to see it when my eyes caught sight of a very familiar looking obstacle and going back I saw Mr. Link sitting at his desk in the physics room working desperately to keep the annual from falling through, and rushing on to the gold one I beheld Mrs. Link, down on her knees, in the act of begging Mr. Birckhead to have gas put into our kitchen. Under this statue was written: “This statue is dedicated to Mrs. Link who is entitled to more than this. For she has had to endure for two whole years the girls of the second year Domestic Science Class. —Ruby Dillard. §3 ®fje ®ap pefore (Examinations T’mas the day before examinations, when all through the school.

And Mr. Brickhead in admiration did exclaim, “Horn marvelous! Horn pretty! Horn entrancing! Horn smeet! To tell you the truth it couldn t be beat. " To the lop of the steps to the upstairs hall, They played amay, played amay, played one and all. So all over the building like birds they flem.

The piercing loud sound of a bugle call. As they came back to earth and mere turning around, Down the steps came the Orchestra mith a bound. Then down at the bottom they met such applaud. They stopped to laugh mith one accord; After laughing amhile they stopped mith a jerk- Went to their class-rooms and straight to work- I have been telling you a secret but nom I am through. I hope you mill like our Orchestra. We all do. 84 —Ruth Dillard. 86 DOMESTIC SCIENCE II RfHPPvHPvMOC 1921 History of Leonti JPear JiomeSttc iktence Class I N September, 1918, our class entered the high school at the old Frederick Hotel, after being greeted with a speech of welcome by Mr. Birckhead he asked the girls to take Domestic Science; and we being as ignorant as most freshmen classes failed to take it; later after seeing the splendid work of that class we regretted not taking it. The next year being Sophomores the first thing we did was to register on the Household Arts roll. At the first lesson Miss Payne almost gave up in despair for the ignorant little Sophomores couldn’t even hold a needle, and as for the thimble we didn’t know there was such a thing. The first thing we were made to sew was our cooking aprons, and then the awful task of working button holes. When this appeared on the scene Helen in desperation threw her first button hole out of the window and with it her thimble which she had never learned to use, since that was mashed by a “Ford” as it struck- Main Street, and there wasn’t another one in town to fit her she has not yet learned to use the detested thimble. On Tuesdays and Thursdays we had the pleasant task of toddling up to the Elementary School in the rain, hail or snow, according to the season, as it was sure to be some form of rainfall on those two days, to take cooking. In this branch of the study we were not so green, although many a mistake has been made that has never been told. One day on entering the kitchen we found that the rats had eaten large holes in our aprons we had labored so faithfully over, and we hadn’t then learned to patch. Another great surprise awaiting us was that when school began in September, 1920, our Miss Payne came back to us as Mrs. Link; but she always has and always will be the best Pal the Domestic Science Class ever had. We now have a lovely sewing room, all fitted out with lovely tables, machines, chairs and best of all a “Mirror.” We also have a kitchen, the utensils of which the whole school is proud, but up to a short while ago we had no gas with which to cook; now the gas has been put in, and also a beautiful new gas range. For the last few weeks we have been working hard in our kitchen and dining¬ room, endeavoring to equip them so that the future Domestic Science classes may not have to borrow silver, linen, etc., from their parents when they have to entertain the faculty. 87 M. M. W. 88 DOMESTIC SCIENCE I RAPRf ©omestic Science Class l A " ' TER one year’s long, hard work as Freshmen we came back to school as Sophomores in the fall of 1920. Then came the awful “task” of selecting the classes that we would like to take. Almost half of the class thinking that Domestic Science was easy, registered in that class first. The first thing Mrs. Link did was to take our names and give us a brief outline of the work we had to cover. She told us about our note-books for cooking and text-books for sewing, and how particular we would have to be in taking down our notes. To some this seemed a little more than they had expected, so gradually they would notify Mrs. Link that they would not take Household Arts. Therefore, there were only twenty who were willing to try and see it to a finish. On the first day these twenty marched to school swinging their sewing bags. Then began our trials and tribulations of turning hems, regulating gathers, making buttonholes, sewing straight seams, and last, but not least, the difficult task of teaching Elizabeth Cross how to use a sewing machine. After Thanksgiving we came back to school in high spirits, for we were going to the new High School at ten minutes of nine in the morning instead of at twelve- thirty P. M., as at the Elementary School. We were overjoyed at having a real, sure-enough sewing room with tables, chairs, sewing machines and, best of all, a beautiful mirror which stood on the floor, and Edith Phillips tried her best to break it the very first day by gazing at herself in it for eighty minutes. Our next task was trying to remember to bring twenty-five cents to help raise money for curtains for our room. After a long time we succeeded in getting them. Then luck came our way and the sewing room was one of the rooms to which Mr. Birckhead gave shades. After this, Alice didn’t have to wear paper bonnets to shade her eyes. After we succeeded in getting our room beautiful this far, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our sewing from the first until we reached the top of the ladder, when we began dresses. And we did not regret the time and work that we had spent taking notes and writing lessons. 89 RPvPRHFvrmC 192 QTo tfje Jioari) of €tiucatton of Jfrebericfesburg who have so conscientiously given their earnest and untiring efforts in behalf of Fredericksburg High School, we, the Class of 1921, do extend our deepest ap¬ preciation to them. 90 9i RPvPFvMPvMDC 1921 Stfjletic SsSociation M UCH criticism can be made of the association for its evident lack of interest in athletics, but nevertheless, some few are to be highly commended for their work in behalf of the association and athletics in general. The stand at the fair was a great success and with the help of Trent Wilson, John Chiles, Ambrose, Mr. Swem and others of the student-body, enough money was cleared to buy football uniforms. The athletic association at the end of the football season gave the football team a supper, which will be long remembered by the team. At this supper Mr. Alwyn Hundley was elected captain of the I 921-’22 football team. By much hard work on the part of the officers and some members of the association, the association has arranged to cut expenses and meet all expenses for 1920-’21. The officers of the association are as follows: President . . . . Vice-President Secretary . . . . Treasurer . . . . J. H.

W II H all new material Coach Swem started out to build up the first foot¬ ball team in the Fredericksburg High School for nearly nine years. The team was entirely inexperienced, most of them never having even seen a football game. Our team was exceedingly light but nevertheless much credit is due to our lightest men, the two ends. In the backfield Billingsley was a real find for our hard rushes. Phillips, our captain, Hundley and Koeppen were also excellent men for the backfield, each putting all he had in our games. On the defensive the back- field and the line always made clean, hard tackles for which they became noted. Much credit is due to the team; we were handicapped by a lack of men, a lack of weight, and a place upon which to practice. The High School played two games with a newly organized town team which was composed chiefly of alumni of the school and of college graduates. In both of these games the High School came out with the largest score. The scores for the games are as follows: F. H. S. . 0 Alexandria FI. S. . 32 F. H. S. . 0 Alexandria H. S. . 40 F.

Another great handicap was experienced in finding a court upon which to practice. In the interest of athletics in the High School and also in the town, it is hoped by both the boys and girls that the school board will see fit to furnish them with a gymnasium befitting of the new High School in which the muscles of the students may be trained as well as their minds.

A good team was worked up out of the recruits who reported for practice. Our lack of tall men hindered us but this was made up for by the swiftness of our forwards and center. Much credit is due to Sullivan and Wilson as guards, Wil¬ son being small but fast. I wish to thank our team again for their hard work and support during the season. J. H.

Hard practice soon rounded the team into a fast and aggressive machine, although not a slugging aggregation, many games were won by infield hits and clever base running. At the outset the greatest handicap was a catcher. F. Coates and N. Bowen, a youngster, soon made the grade and our greatest worry was removed. The pitching staff was stronger than the average, having two right-handers, Phillips and Sullivan, and one southpaw, Melton. The remaining positions were ably played by the following: 1st base, Melton; 2nd base, Phillips; 3rd base, F. Wilson; S. S., Crismond; F. F., Hundley; C. F., Gallant; R. F., T. Wilson; Subs: W. Ricker, C. Rowe, R. McCoy. “Bony” Jones was our mascot and batboy.

One day in French, Mrs. Williams discovered some sort of wire parapher¬ nalia in the golden tresses of fair Isabel, and seeing William Russell sitting directly in back of her, asked, “William Russell, were you responsible for that?” to which Fielding Wilson quietly answered, “No, Mrs. Williams, he’s not responsible.” For several weeks Edith Phillips was saying upon all occasions, “isn’t that the agonizing pathonathy,” and everybody wondered what she meant, including her¬ self. Finally, after it had been sifted to the botton, it was discover that Ju Rowe had once said, “Isn’t that agony personified?” Hence Edith’s pet exclamation. Was this derived by evolution or revolution? Grafton Greenlaw (in Physics Class) : “Virginia, can I use some of Levin’s ink ? ” Miss Johnson (in dictating a short letter) : “Please send me 2,000 ties, six by seven by eight feet.

Now see if you can answer the question.” Whorley: “It’s a two wheeled wind.” Miss Rhea: “Are there any questions in English today?” James Franklin: “What is the lesson?” Kate Gouldin: “Mr. Birckhead, I didn’t know ants had teeth.” Mr. Birkhead: “Well Kate, where did you get that idea?” Kate: “The book said that they had a sweet tooth.” P other day in English, in talking of Poe’s mode of composition of the Raven, Miss Rhea said “Poe was sitting on a midnight—” when Emeline exclaimed, “Oh Miss Rhea, that must have been an awfully unsubstantial seat.” Little bits of powder. Little daubs of paint, Make my teacher pretty. Even if she ain’t. While Miss Rhea was speaking on debate forms, Jo Dalton innocently chirped up and said, “Miss Rhea, you’ll show us a real good form, so as we can copy yours, won’t you?” And still she wonders why everybody laughed. We were having a lecture on light in Physics. Emiline wished to know why we could not see things at a distance. “Why the dust particles break up the rays. It’s very much more difficult to see things on a misty night than on a clear day.” “You know this for yourself” he innocently assured us.
