"Autres tempf, aulres maeursf' Since some erudite French philosopher first put this obvious truth, "other times, other customs," into words, the old maxim has never missed Hre. And once more, in the case of Fulton High School, it has proven true. How many of us about to graduate the ancient customs and tradi- recall tions which firmly bound the student body of the old Fulton High School? How with many recall the semi-reverence which the under-classmen re- garded that group, the cream of the Student body, the Senior class? Certainly one's memory must be short to forget those old times, better to be recalled than continued. School life was an endless following of hide-bound tradition. The conservative majority would quickly turn " thumbs down" on any radical idea. Those time-honored walls, the ivy-covered masonry, the sombre, brooding atmosphere of that venerable pile was anything but con- ducive to new ideas, new enterprises. True, school spirit was not dead, but it was dormant. Something had to happen- Something did happen. In the mid- dle of the fall term, 1924, Fulton High School shook off its age-old lethargy, and stepped out and did things. Storing her ancient traditions in the place of their birth, the old building, she moved bag and baggage into the new quarters. CCurtain to denote the passing of two and one-half yearsj Pk PK Pk Well, well, well, the old school has changed, and how! The perpetual Senior is slowly be- coming a thing of the past. No longer do students remain in our halls for six or eight years through love of the old Alma Mater Qsarcasmj. No longer does the Freshman tremble when some upper-classman glances in his direction. To be sure the old reverence of Freshman for Senior has not disappeared, and it never will. But to a great extent it is much less noticeable. But one old-time custom has come down to us from the days of the past. That of applauding the Senior in assemblies has justly survived. On the whole, however, these remnants of a by- gone day are extinct. And it is fitting that they should be, for they do not belong to the new and better Fulton High School. In the words ofthe poet "The old order changeth, giving place to the new." It is with pleasure that we see the Freshmen and Sophomores attending social functions which in the old days were patronized almost exclusively by the Juniors and Seniors. The Fresh- man of today may be young, but in the activity which began with the new building, he quickly drops his grade- school manners and becomes an integral THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 7 part of the new Fulton High School. In the old school, when the school day was over, the doors were locked and the building abandoned for the night to the mice. Today the High School is a center of activity. On the stage we find a Erst-class drama getting its finishing touches. In the ofiice, the debaters are busy with their briefs and arguments. From the gym comes the sounds of the athletes priming for a coming contest, or on some occasions the pulsating rhythm of a dance orchestra, for high school dances are the most recent and most successful of the innovations ot the new era. Do people protest that this increasing activity will lower the standard of the school? For an answer, we refer them to the marks of the past two years, as compared to those of four or live years ago. In those days when school life moved in a slow and measured tempo, there might have been cause for such a protest, but with the new building came that new element-spirit, energy, call it what you may--that seems to enable people to do more and better things in less time than before. Today, more than ever before in the history of the school, is the student body capable of great things. And so it is that we of the Senior class, on the eve of our graduation, look back with pleasure, but without regret, on the old days. We are in the midsttof a new era, and in the bustle and activity of these days, the old times quickly vanish into the dim past. With the graduation of the next class, that of '28, these things we have spoken of will be no longer in a memory, but a tale learned by hearsay. But let us not forget, in the pride of our achievements, that to those that came before us is due the honor of establishing the high name of Fulton High School. And re- membering, let us not forget that to us, and to those that come after, is the task of upholding that name, a task that may be accomplished by continuing in that admirable and commendable spirit in which the school moves at present, the very essence of which is embodied in the two words "LET'S GO!!,' -JAMES C. FANNIN, DANIEL C. XNILLIAMS. Miss Anna Kimber Seldom has an institution been so fortunate as Fulton High School in retaining for such a long period a teacher of Miss Kimber's ability and character. A native of Fulton, Miss Kimber was graduated from the Fulton High School in the class of 1892. After teaching a year in the Walradt Street School, she entered Cornell University, later re- turning to Fulton High School as a teacher of mathematics. During the twenty-three years of her efiicient and loyal service, she has ever been an inspiration to the students. Because of her sympathetic under- standing of student life and problems, she has exercised an influence far- reaching in its effect. It is with deepest regret that we relinquish Miss Kimber. We wish her happiness and continued success in whatever she may undertake in the future. F SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL nr '39, i.

Harold Sant Treasurer ............. Kenneth Ure I shall now relate to you the saga of the class of '28, This is a remarkable body of boys and girls who have accomplished much in ways which have heretofore lain untrodden. These were the first freshmen to enter the new Fulton High School. Shortly after the organization of the group, the school frolic was held in the gym at which the Juniors took first prize for having the largest percentage of its number present. The prize was a live-pound box ofmarshmallows and was received by Carlton Ure in the absence of Leonard Root. The pupils chose orchid as their color. The juniors have taken an active part in athletics having both a boys' and a girls' basket ball team. Dorothy Bintz was chosen captain of the girls while Harold Sant was named captain of the boys. The boys won three games and lost only one while the girls did not enjoy such a good season. At the close of the season, the girls' team held a banquet in the Hotel Lewis, at which all the players were present, as well as members of the faculty who made the party a complete success. The Juniors have gained a name for themselves by stepping forth and winning the inter-class track meet. The track men are: Hal Sant, Bud Parks, Leon Stuber. The Juniors are now anxiously awaiting their fate, that is, whether or not they will pass their regents and become Seniors. If they are exalted to this high rank, they will spend the next year working equally as hard so that they may again be successful. Thus we close a remarkable year, and we exhort the Sophomore class to tread in our illustrious footprints on the road to fame. -HARRIE'I' CRAHAN, '28. if if lil Helen-"Did you see the conductor lookin . , . , g at you as if you hadn t paid our fares?'

Miss Wilson-"Sure, put them in the filing cabinet. Nobody can find anything there." I4 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Sophomores President ......... Edward Mehegan Vice-President .......... John Kraus Secretary ............ Helen O'Grady Treasurer ............ Pauline Elliott For two years the class of 1929 has been participating in school affairs in commendable fashion. Members of the class have become loyal supporters of all worth-while activities both ath- letic and scholastic. Although the Sophomore organization has not been in action for a great length of time, it is progressing well. Both boys and girls have taken an unusual interest in basket ball. They were able to hold the opponents in good fashion although the class did not win the championship of either the boys or girls. Baseball is next in the line of athletics. This game has found loyal supporters in the Sophomore class. As usual the track meet was held for the classes. The Juniors were able to capture nearly all the honors. The efficiency of the Sophomore is shown by Erick de Bruyn taking the high jump. Harold Hart defeated the other racers in both one hundred and two-twenty dashes. At the opening of the football season many of Sophomore class men showed their interests and became efficient members of the squad. They seem to have formed a spirit of good sportsmanship and loyalty to the school. The class has not attempted to function socially. There has not been any social activities held for the Sophomore class alone, but for the school as one, they had a big time Frolic. The accomplishments of Sophomores should be a favorable example for Freshmen of the Fulton High School to follow next year. -PAULINE ELLIOTT, '29. F R O S H President ............ Thomas Myers Vice-President ..... Catherine Conley Secretary ........, Esther Woodbury Treasurer ...... ......,.. R obert Otis We, the members of the Freshman Class of 1927, entered high school last September, being one of the largest classes ever to enter the school. Like all Freshmen Classes of course we had to take our share of knocks from the uptper classmen. But it was not long be ore we became established and were taking our part in the activities of the school. The Hrst thing that the Freshmen organized was the Junior Glee Club. At the first meeting the following officers were elected: President, Maurice Batemang Vice-President, lda- belle Story, Secretary, Catherine Con- leyg and Treasurer, George Roy. In January, new officers were elected: Catherine Conley, President, and Vic- torine Lewis, Treasurer. We sang in assembly early in the spring and showed the big Glee clubs that they were not the only ones with voices. When basket ball time came the "freshies" were not to be outdone by the other classes. A meeting was held and the boys elected Melville Har- graves, Captain. Mr. Bodley was their advisor while Miss O'Neill was the advisor for the girls. Esther Woodbury was elected captain and she led her team to victory five times out of six. The freshman girls' team held a party in the gym in April. Three members of the faculty were chaperones. Miss Riley, Miss O'Neill and Miss Edmunds. VVe Freshmen are very proud of the numerous societies, we have formed this year. Besides the Glee Club and the basket ball teams are the junior orchestra under the direction of Miss Hoke and the Junior Science Club which was instituted by Miss Otis, teacher of biology. The first meeting was held in Room 3. James Mason was elected Presidentg Ted Freeman, Vice-President, Esther Woodbury, Sec- retary, and Margaret Keyes, Treasurer. Considering how much we did this year, it is safe to say that we will accomplish even better things in the years to follow. -CATHEMNE CONLEY, '3O. THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 15 I'-SGW' 25 Student rqanization -ZQra--- - Two years ago there was organized in Fulton High School a School Congress. Though it is a comparatively new ex eriment it has proved to be success- fulri With the assistance of Mr. Strough, a committee of students drew up a plan of student government which was then submitted to the school for approval. With the opening of school in the fall the members who are elected carry on an everlasting patriotism for the school. Each home room elects oflicers, president and secretary, who represents this room in the School Congress. These groups meet and prepare nominations for the school oliicers. As a result of the general election last fall these were elected: President, VVilliam Foster, Vice-Presi- dent, Harriet Crahan, Secretary, Mahlon Freeman. The Student Organization has man- aged successfully the financial plan of the Athletic Department ofthe school. Each week five cents is collected from every student for the support of the Athletic Department. In return, for their five cents, free tickets are issued every week of a game, to students whose dues are paid to date. Much credit is to be given this organization for its splendid achieve- ment of clearing its debts. The ellicient services of Mary Coleman, Geraldine Scott, Dorothy Bintz, Katherine Joseph, Marion Casey and Hazel Martin were of great help in keeping the reports of each room in the School Congress. Katherine Brackett was Secretary of Finance but was succeeded by Geraldine Scott, and Mary Coleman is Secretary of Athletics. Much credit is to be given to the secretary of these departments for their splendid work. Another achievement of the School Congress was the clarification of the rules for the award of school insignia and the adoption of the complete system of such awards. m9a- The School Oflicers and Members of Congress are as follows: President ............, William Foster Vice-President ........

Assembly Programs Throughout the year many very in- teresting men have entertained the student body. Frederick Snyder of New York City told of his experiences as a newspaper correspondent. J. Adam Puffer of Boston gave an interesting talk on his encounters with students in schools of the principal cities of the country. R. P. Anderson, deputy regional executive of the Boy Scouts of America, outlined the work of that organization. Dr. Melchoir, of the faculty of Syracuse University, gave an address entitled "Let's Go." This was declared by all to be one of the finest speeches heard during the year. Mr. John Distin from the G. A. R. gave an interesting account of the old Civil War days. The Orthophonic Victrola, loaned to the High School by J. R. Sullivan, furnished the entertainment for several "get-togethersf' Other musical pro- grams were presented from time to time by the orchestras from Phillips Street School and Fairgrieve Junior High. Pep Meetings were held frequently throughout the year previous to foot- ball and basket ball games. These meetings were successfully conducted by Bill Foster, Dan Williams and Hazel Hollingsworth. Everyone who heard the cheers declared them to be the best in the history of Fulton High School. I Cheer! Cheer! Cheer, cheer, here we are again, To cheer with all our might.

The work of the club has been some- what broken up by the loss of its faculty advisor, Miss Ethel Austin, who resigned her position as head of the dramatic work of the hi h school. Nevertheless with the aid ofgMiss Lois Wagner the active members have worked together and made this a suc- cessful year. The club had many social activities. Although the motive of the Thalian Club is primarily the promotion of dramatics and public speaking, yet much social life has been enjoyed. A Halloween party and banquet were held in the school gymnasium. The annual picnic and banquet are soon to be held and it is anticipated that they will be as successful as they were last year. -SARAH GIBBONS, '27.

The avowed object was the increase and dissemination of scientific knowledge. The membership was limited to those who are taking or have passed one of the physical sciences. The following ofiicers were elected: President .......... Gaylord Whitaker Vice-President ........ Richard Carver Treasurer ......,... Theodore Prawda Secretary ....... .... i Anna McGinnis Reporter .............. Bertram Mills Faculty Advisor ...... Mr. C. VVood Section Ofiicers Physics ......... .....

The membership has been in- creased by other individuals who became members after taking the oath and receiving the spark of scientific enthusiasm. Honorary members consisting of Mr. Bodley, Mr. Strough and Mr. Taylor were elected and became members of the club without the ordeal of initiation or due extraction. The first regular meeting was held in Room 30 on November llth. At this meeting, a diving submarine con- structed by Albert Ives was demon- strated. Erwin Menter exhibited a model artesian well. Grace Wilcox, Ruth Kenny and VVirt Barker took water apart and put it together again. The December meeting consisted of scientific motion pictures furnished by the General Electric Company. At this time there were talks by several of the members. At the February meeting, Mr. D. C. Pattello, of the Arrowhead Mills, gave an illustrated lecture on the scientific phases of paper-making. The exhibits THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 21 were furnished by the various manu- facturers ofthe city. Mr. C. J. Wood's recent play entitled "A Trip To the Moon" was also presented. It was very good. Although it was very fantastic, it was thoroughly enjoyed by the audience. The Cast consisted of: Alice Stewart, Beardsley Sperry, and Ted Prawda. The March meeting consisted of a series of scientific motion pictures which were shown in the auditorium of the high school. The proceeds were presented to the school athletic fund. In A ril, the Fulton Club was the guest ofpthe Oswego High Science Club, at a joint meeting at which they were addressed by Dr. Baker of the Chemical Department of Syracuse University. On June lst the members of the Oswego Club were the guests of the Fultonians. To do one better the fine time that the Oswegonians showed us, we presented on our program Mr. W. C. Lodge, Chemical Engineer of the Oswe o Falls Corp. and Mr. Pattello, Ciemical Engineer of the Arrowhead Mills. They gave illustrated lectures on the aper- making industry, which were olpgreat interest to the large audience which attended. Refreshments were served later in the evening, after which the Oswego Club Departed, but not before voting our Science Club " The Prince of Entertainers." judging by the first year's success, the Science Club has a promising future. -B. MILLS, '28. Junior Science Club The very latest things in school organizations, the Junior Science Club was organized in the Spring of this year, for the purpose of furthering interest in Nature. The study of birds and flowers form the greater part of the activities of the Club, although any matter of scientific interest may be brought up for discussion by the members. The aims of the Junior Science Club are very much like those of the Science Club. lt helped its big brother in selling tickets for the Movie Benefit and on many other occasions was of great aid. Fifty students are already on the roll of this worthy organization. Mr. Bodley was the principal speaker at the most interesting meeting of the year. His talk on our native birds was enjoyed by all present. VVith two such capable leaders as Mr. Bodley and Miss Otis there is no doubt as to the success- ful future of this Club. The ofiicers are: President .............. James Mason Vice-President ....... Teddy Freeman Secretary .......... Esther Woodbury Treasurer ............ Margaret Keys Meetings are held every two weeks in the Science Room of the High School. All members of Biology classes are eligible to join. Forensic Club Newark-Fulton Debate At the close of school one Friday afternoon of sunny May, the members of the Newark-Fulton debate team accompanied by Coach Bodley set out for Newark, where we were to prove to the inhabitants of the metropolis that "Chemical Warfare Should be Abol- ished." Our departure, however, did not take place without considerable delay made necessary by a last minute attempt of colleague Morin's to locate a missing head-gear, which was later found to be in the car. Finally after a dashing journey in our Bodley piloted sedan we arrived at Newark, where we straightway headed for the Newark Coffee Shoppe. After lunching more or less heartily, we began to stroll down Main Street, that we might become better acquainted with the town. Soon we were overtaken by an individual, who upon Ending out that we were the Fulton debaters informed us that he was the reception committee. Thence we proceeded to the Perkins School which was to be the scene of the conflict. The remainder of the recess time was spent by a tour of the school grounds, and by informing a gullable Newark student of our noteworthy oratorical reputation, the greater part 22 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Forensic Club Morin, O'Grady, Bodley, Williams, Fannin, VVhitaker, Strough of which was slightly exaggerated. The hour ofjudgment was then upon us, and we boldly entered the audi- torium, where we were introduced to the chairman and our worthy op- ponents. Thereupon, we seated our- selves at a long table with a pitcher of water upon it which tasted as if it had been doped by our opponents. The curtain was drawn apart and we were subjected to the glares of the multitude. Jack O'Grady was first to make his way to the platform. Jack conducted himself in a laudable manner creating an atmosphere favoring the prohibition of chemical warfare, which the negative was unable to break down throughout the debate. Thus the way was paved for me and I continued to build up our case. Next Morin took up the argument and was forceful enough to arouse the indignation of the negative to such a degree that they made an attempt to confuse him by asking that they be allowed to question him. Their request was granted, and Ed, after suliiciently squelching them, continued with his argument stronger than ever. It must be admitted that the nega- tive had several arguments which seemed good as they presented them in an attractive manner. Williams as rebuttal blew these arguments to fragments, and even went so far as to make our opponents feel almost sorry that they presented themselves. Dan championed the cause in a manner which showed to advantage the ex- perience and training he has had in the National Oratorical Contest. Then came the moment of greatest suspense, while the judges were ren- dering their decision. As usual the result was 3 and 0, favoring F. H. S. It sure was a happy bunch that returned to good old Fulton that night, the stillness being broken only by the purr of the motor and sleepy remarks from the rear seat as to the roughness of thehighway.-GAYLORDVVH1TAKER,'27. International Oratorical Contest For the past three years Fulton High School has entered its representatives 1n the International Oratorical Contest. THIS SENIOR YEAR BOOK -FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 23 Three years ago Homer Osborn won first place in the Oswego County Con- test held at Oswego. l.ast year Fulton High sent forth two competitors to the County competition. On this occasion F. H. S. captured both first and third places. Daniel Williams, winner of first place in this contest, then went to YVatertown where he won second place in the District Contest. It is clear that our record last year was a vast improvement over the year previous. A still greater improvement was evident this year. joseph Simonds and Daniel Williams were sent as our representatives to the County Contest at Mexico. Williams again emerged victorious by a unanimous vote. Thus he earned the right to enter the District Contest at Watertown again this year. This time Dan set out with a firm resolution to overthrow his last year's record, which itselfwas an enviable one. He did it, bringing back to Fulton High not only the honor of his being District Champion, but also fifty dollars as a personal reward for his efforts. This money will be given to Dan at Com- mencement. But, this is not all. lYilliams by virtue of his IYatertown victory earned the right to compete in the state finals at Albany. Here Dan did not gain first place, but out of nine contestants he was awarded third place. This is, indeed, a distinct honor to Dan, as well as to Fulton High School, as we have in our midst not only the County Champion and the District Champion, but the third l'est high school student Urzltwt' of New York, the lfmpire State. .

Miss Monica Brown, who was then head of the music department, promptly re- sponded to their call and in little time had an organization well under way. As the years have passed since that memorable day the Girls' Glee Club has progressed in every way possible. Miss Meryl I-Ioke, supervisor of music in Fulton High School, has been enthusiastic in her work with the 24 THE SENIOR YEAR BOO K-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Girls' Glee Club during the past year. The Club was called together at the beginning of the fall term for the purpose of electing oi1"'icers for the year and the following were chosen: President .......... Madalyn O'Brien Vice-President .... Hazel Hollingsworth Secretary ............ Norma Stevens Treasurer ......... Margaret Jennings A new venture in school activities in the student body of our high school was started this fall by Miss Hoke in the formation of a Freshmen Girls' Glee Club. This organization is composed entirely of freshmen who have enjoyed their musical work under the leadership of Miss Hoke. A Christmas Cantata, " Child jesus," by Joseph Clokey and Hazel Kirk, was given in the high school auditorium, December 22, 1926. A Band Concert was held at the high school, February 28, 1927. The Girls' Glee Club sang "Gypsy Trail" by G. VVarhurst, and "WVill-o-the-Wisp" by I. B. VVilson,. as their share in this musical program. A banquet of the combined Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs and the Fulton High School Orchestra was held in the school cafeteria May 25, 1927, at seven o'clock. Following the banquet, Edward Park acted as toastmaster and called for talks from Madalyn O'Brien, Helen O'Grady, Mahlon Freeman, and Roy Wallace of the organizations, Principal L. H. Strough, and Miss Meryl Hoke. The one-act comedy "Rosalie" was presented, with Rubye Crowell taking the part of Rosalie, Allen Hazelwood as Mr. Bol and Hazel Martin as Mrs. Bol. A vocal duet was sung by Andrew Lowden and Katherine Hillickg and the monologue "Sparkin" was given by Margaret Taylor. A banquet was the final activity of a most success- ful season. Boys' Glee Club One of the most important musical organizations of the Fulton High School has been the " Boys' Glee Club," with Edward fBudj Parks as its president. Probably the most important event of the Boys' Glee Club this term was the "Christmas Cantata," when they combined with the Girls' Glee Club to present this elaborate program. This came on December 19th. The Boys' Glee Club also sang on the night of February 28th when the Citizens Band and the High School Orchestra gave a concert. The numbers played were "Anvil Chorus" by Verdi and "Old Folks at Home" by Foster. Besides the numerous public func- tions in which the Boys' Glee Club has participated, it has furnished music for numerous assemblies of the student body and has been very successful. Orchestra One of the most valuable assets to the Fulton High School this year has been its orchestra, under the direction of Miss Hoke. Besides playing for an assembly and ordinary school functions, it has come to the front in a number of the functions of the community. On December 19th, a "Christmas Cantata" was given by the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs combined, which was assisted by the 'High School Orchestra. The affair was enlivened and given a bit more color by the numbers played before the curtain arose and after it fell. Another important event was the musical program presented by the Fulton Citizens Band on February 28th when a number of selections were rendered by the orchestra before the program of the band for the evening was begun. This emphasized the fact that the affair was a high school function. It was well supported by the public and the proceeds benefited the Athletic Association. The most important event at which the High School Orchestra went over big, was an entertainment given by the Daughters of Veterans at Grange Hall on April 22d. The services of the orchestra were donated and a vote of thanks was received from the com- mittee in charge a few days after, showing their appreciation. On the 23d of April, a short entertain- ment was given by the Science Club, for the benefit of the Athletic Associa- tion, at which the orchestra played a THE SENIOR YI-ZAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL '25 Boys' Glee Club Back Row: Freeman, Terpening, Park, Foster, Jennings, Darling lfront Row: Barker, Freeman, Clark, Hazelwood few selections. This also was well supported, not only hy the high school hut hy the public as well, and the music was an important factor in making the program a success. On May 9th, came the American Legion Minstrels at the Quirk Theatre. Here the High School Orchestra played two selections for which much applause was received. One of the selections included a trumpet solo which was played by Charles Lamphere who was playing in the absence of Bud Parks, the orchestra's first cornetist. Bud is not only a very good trum eter but also an excellent " End-man " fbr a minstrel. The High School Orchestra will also do its hit at the Commencement Exercises on the 22d of June, the last high school function of the year and also when the Senior Class Play is presented.

The Girls' League prepared and served, with the aid of our faculty advisors, Miss Edmunds and Miss Harding, the Block "F" Banquet for football men. During the basket ball season the girls sold candy at the home games. VVhen tickets were to be sold for entertainments, the league was called upon to assist. The supper given to the Girls' Basket Ball Team of Oswego was served by the organization. The work this year has sur assed that of the first year the Club was organized and it is hoped that the Club will continue to be of service. The Girl Scouts The Girl Scouts, a new organization of the high school, is proving a success. The chief ofiicers are two of the teachers: Miss Edmunds, Captain, and Miss Preston, Lieutenant. The other officers are: Priscilla Howe, Secretary, janet Forsythe, Cheer Leader, Marjorie Harding, Song Leader, and Virginia Hillick, Color Bearer. The scouts are divided into troops with a leader at the head of each: Norma Stevens, Patrol Leader of troop one, Catherine Conley, Patrol Leader of troop two, and Esther Shattuck, Patrol Leader of troop three. Eighteen girls have passed the Ten- derfoot test which includes interesting hikes and picnics besides the more practical work. The Second Class test as already been started and is showing rapid pro ress. New members are being con tinualiy received and the girls seem to like the work. Each member has received some special benefit from the tests. Block "F" Club When school ends in June it will mark the close of the second successful year of the Block "F" Club. This club was organized through the efforts of Coachjim Freeman for the urpose of bringing the athletes of Fulion High School closer together, and encouraging more boys to take the athletic oppor- tunities which the school offers. A great improvement has been noticed in these res ects. The teams have shown more figliting spirit, and the fellows have worked smoother together. Since its organization, the club has inspired more boys to turn out for the teams. In all sports the squads 'reporting have tripled those in the days before the club. At the Oswego game, Fulton had forty-four players in uniform, which is a credit to any High School. At the first meeting last fall, the election of oliicers was held with the result that Pete Allen was elected President, Hal Hart, Vice-President, Jimmy Dougan, Secretary, and Hal Sant, Treasurer. During the year, the club has staged dances, boxing and wrestling meets of the Syracuse Uni- versity teams, and movie benefits, as well as lending a hand in the School Circus. Many new men became eligible for membership this year and they will receive their Block "F" sweaters next June. The Football Banquet was held in the cafeteria with Wes. Allen as chairman. The entire football s uad was present to hear the result off the election of next year's captain. After the dinner, in which johnny Muscalino bested Lige Lake in the Marathon Eating Contest by a single helping of sweet potatoes, Harold Hart was announced the newly elected captain. Speeches by Pete Kraus and Dobie Freeman fol- lowed, after which Foster and VVilliams, the cheer leaders, led cheers for the individual members of the squad, for Jimmie Dougan, last year's captain, for Harold Hart, leader of the '27 team, and for the retiring coach, Dobie Freeman. ill 3 ak Myers-"Did you miss me while I was gone?"

S. 1927 was the greatest year in the history of the school, as far as cheering is concerned. Year after year, our athletes fought for the honor of the school with no encouragement, no cheer- ing. At the annual Oswego game,Fulton did manage to make a little noise, but the long yells of the Oswegonians, with " the greatest cheering section in Central NewYorkHsmotheredourbestattempts. But this year, the worm turned. At the annual struggle with Oswego, Fulton stepped out and did things. Fulton started affairs by booming out the first cheer "The Spell out Fulton." Oswego hit right back with the "Spell out Oswego." In former years, that first volley from the Starch city would be enough to wilt the courage of the cohorts of Fulton for the rest of the game. But not so this year. Fulton CC 77 james Dobie By the untiring efforts and assistance of Coach Freeman, athletics of Fulton High School have been dragged from the mire to a field of glory. A few years ago the teams of the school were com- posed of seniors. With the passing of each class to the outside world, from where were the next teams coming? Possibly some seniors would be out for sports. Those who came out were very few and untrained. "Dobie" has remedied this condition. Under his influence the underclass- had her spirit up, and promptly pro- ceeded to go mad. Bill Foster and Dan Williams, dressed like a circus parade, tied themselves into a thousand knots and then proceeded to untie them, and sent the "F-U-Fight" booming across the field. For the first time in the history of the school, a Fulton yell hit the Blue and White square in the face. Never before had Fulton really got "fighting mad." And all through long and trying basket ball season, the spirit of F. H. S. never dropped. At every game Hazel Hollingsworth lead the songs, and Foster and Williams kept the cheering sections in an almost continual round of yells. The time has arrived when the expression " You cheer like Fulton" is no longer one of sarcasm, but one of the highest praise. A. Freeman men have come out for sports. By his talks to the boys in assembly at the beginning of each season of sport, he has inspired an eager feeling in every boy to go out for the best that is in him. The fellows who go out for sports usually stick throughout the entire season. Most of the men play in the games enough quarters or innings to earn a block UF." "Dobie" is a graduate of Cornell University and was a student of the University of Rochester for two years. He has been a student for three summers at Notre Dame under Knute Rockne. Surely he knows "His Stuff." But best of all "Dobie" is one of the squarest and best coaches that a high school could desire. James A. Freeman is to be head coach of football and assistant coach of basket ball and base- ball at Albany High School. Good luck on your new expedition, " Dobie." Though loath to lose a loyal friend and inspiring leader, we send with you our best wishes for continued success in your new field of labor. 30 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Football Team Back Row: W.

Mehegan, Holt, Coleman, Park, Storms, Hart Front Row: Hillick, Zizzi, Muscalino, Volgelgsang, Welch, Dougan, Nettleton, Barnard Football The 1926 football season marked coach Freeman's sixth year as director of athletics at Fulton. This period of six years has seen Fulton represented by some of the strongest teams in the history of the school. Wle regret that Coach Freeman will not be with us next year. At the opening of the season Coach Freeman was faced with the problem of molding a team out of new material. There were but three regulars left from last year and prospects for a successful season looked doubtful. However, with Dougan, P. Kraus and Parks as a background a team was developed that could be favorably compared to any team in this section of the state. Although defeated in the first two games, the team put forth a winning brand of football for the rest of the season. Utica Fulton pried off the lid of the 1926 season by lining up against the Utica Free Academy team on the Recreation Park gridiron. The field was in bad condition due to recent rains, and our fleet backfield was greatly hindered. All those who witnessed this game realized that Fulton's downfall was due not so much to the inferiority of her playing as to poor kicking. The final score was 19-O in favor of Utica. Syracuse North High On October 9th Fulton played its second game meeting North High School of Syracuse. The final score of 20-6 in favor of North should not be used to judge the playing ability of the Fulton team as statistics gathered after the game show that our team gained nearly twice as much yardage as our opponents. North secured her three touchdowns on bad kicks inside the 20-yard line. Kraus and Clark played good games for the locals. Canastota Canastota came to Fulton on October 16th with a heavy well-coached team fully expecting to repeat its 1925 victory. For the entire period of play both teams battled to put across a touchdown but without success. Reichel and Quirk starred for Fulton on the line while the line plunges and end runs of Dougan and Chubb would have caused Red Grange or Eddy Tryon to turn green with envy. THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 31 Adams On October 23d Fulton faced the heavy Adams team on the local gridiron. The big green team showed considerable improvement in this ame with a stronger attack. Adams failed to pierce our stone wall defense and also failed to resist the onslaughts of our four horsemen. Dougan, Coleman and Chubb played their usual good games while Clark's end runs brought the spectators to their feet time and again. Seneca Falls Saturday, October 30th, brought the Mynderse Academy team of Seneca Falls to Fulton. This game was played in a sea of mud and several colds developed as a result. Mynderse was not able to enetrate Fulton's perfected defense wffile our own attack was irresistible and netted us eight touchdowns. Nettleton and Hart were the heroes of this game. A fifty-yard run by Hart was one of the features of the game. Oswego On October 6th Fulton traveled to Oswego for their annual game. For two hours before the game there was a continual stream of automobiles, Oswego bound, carrying the loyal supporters of the Red and Green team to the scene of battle. The day was ideal for football but the playing field was not in the best of condition. The game started with Dougan kicking ofif to Oswego. Oswego at- tempted several line plays without much success and returned the ball to our territory via the air route. The Green team started then and there to make a touchdown or die in the attempt. Their attempt was nearly successful as they rushed the ball to Oswego's five-yard line. Here, on an off-tackle play the ball was fumbled and Fulton lost her chance to score. About this time Kraus was injured and had to be taken from the game. In the second half two more of Fulton's best men, Park and Mehegan, were injured and Coach Freeman was forced to remove them from the game. After the removal of these players Oswego managed to penetrate our weakened line and scored a touchdown. The game ended 6-0 against the Red and Green. Hart's work won much a plause from fans of both sides. Npettleton, Chubb and Dougan played great games. The Team Arthur CArtJ Nettleton started the season at end but his ability as a ball carrier soon caused him to be shifted to backfield. Art was a constant menace to the opponentspgoal. John Uohnniel Clark developed into one of the fleetest halfbacks on the Red and Green. His dashing end runs ke t the spectators on their toes during tlie entire game. William CBillJ Zizzi is developing into a great half back. He will, in all rob- ability, be one of the mainstays ofpnext year. john CSteveJ Storms played both guard and end. He was always at the right spot at the right time. Steve will be with us when the next season rolls around. Paul CPeteD Kraus was a bulwark on defense and the keystone man on offense. Pete is one of the best centers developed at Fulton in recent years. Benny Barnard, after suffering an injury the first of the season, developed into one of the best defensive ends Fulton High has boasted of in years. Fred Reichel came through at tackle as expected and conse uentl ' very little ground was gained dirough his territory. Fred will be with us again next year. Mahlon CMonkj Freeman was the handy man of the hour being placed in a guard position at critical points of the game. This marked Monk's first season and he has two more years in which to help carry the Red and Green to victory. Bill Mehegan in his first season out played a sterling game at guard. In the Oswego game he was a wall of stren th. His retirement from the game at time height of the battle with a badly wrenched ankle contributed much to Fulton's defeat. Jack Coleman, in his first year as a regular, was one of the most feared men on the team always being a threat to his opponents to reel off twenty-five or thirty yards for the needed touchdown. Jack will be with us again next year. Bill Holt is one of the most promising football men for next year's team. Holt is rapidly developing into a great kicker and seems distined to rival Georgie McNickle for the honor of Fulton's 32 THF SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL greatest ball booter. Buddy Parks, veteran of three years, played a bang-up game at tackle, and formed part of the stalwart forward wall that stopped the Oswego plunges. Eric de Bruyn, playing his first year for the Red and Green, distinguished himself as one of the fleetest ends in recent years. He will be one of the "big guns" next year. "Wing-foot"' Hart, who will lead the Red and Green in next year's strenuous schedule, was one of the speediest and craftiest signal-callers that ever donned the moleskins for the Red and Green. Jimmie Chubb, Fulton's "White Hope" for the next three years, is only a freshman but his line plunging and long distance punting will certainly be a thorn in Oswego's side for some time to come. Boys' Basket Ball Team Herner, Hart, P. Kraus, Ure, Coleman, Culkin, Kraus, Dougan, De Bruyn, Holt, Lee Basket Ball Late in November the call for basket ball candidates was issued. Coach Freeman had to build his team with inexperienced players. The team was weakened by the ineligibility of Captain Johnny Kraus who was unable to play until late in January. Only about twice during the entire season did Coach Freeman have his best team on the Hoor because of injuries. The season was not a success but next year the high school can rely upon experienced players as only one member of the team is lost by graduation. The only game during the entire season that was won was with Mexico who proved easy, but the fight and determination of the team was shown by the fact that many games were lost by one and two point margins. Probably the only game in which we displayed smooth teamwork was at Sherrill. The score was in doubt until the final minutes of play. This would probably have been a victory for us had Dougan not been removed from the game by four per- sonal fouls. Our losses to Oswego are no disgrace to our school, as Oswego has an old and experienced team. This was shown when Oswego defeated Central and qualified for the State Championship Tournament at Buffalo. At the Central New York League Banquet at Syracuse the Fulton High School team was praised for their fight and persistence in spirit of the unjust criticism that was aimed at them. We hope that next year we can have a more successful season and this is apparent as many letter men will be seen in action. The following men composed the back- bone of the team: Captain Johnny Kraus, Jimmy Dougan, Dolly Herner, Bob Culkin, Al Kraus, De Bruyn, Storms, Holt, Lee, Coleman, Ure and Hart. Baseball The baseball team started off its season in an unusual manner by winning the first three games. The team this year is one of the strongest that we have had in years. Paul Kraus holds down the backstop position with Farnum, Ketchum, Dougan and Dix available for mound duty. Captain Herner is still starring in his old position at shortstop. The remainder of the team is as follows: Chubb, first base, Ure and Hart, second base, Holt, third base, Culkin, Dougan and Stuber, out- Helders, Arnold, utility. THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 33 Basekall Team Back Row: Dix, Stuber, Ketchum, Ifarnum, Holt, Culkin, Hart Front Row: Chubb, Ure, Zizzi, Herner, Muscalino, Ii. Mehegan, Arnold Nottingham In the first game of the season the locals swamped the Nottingham High School of Syracuse. The hitting and fielding of the locals was the leading feature of the game. Farnum started in the box and performed in big league fashion by fanning many of the Syracuse team. Manlius The Manlius Cadets were the next opponents. They were likewise snowed under by the slugging attack which was led by Dougan and Kraus. Kraus walloped the first home run of the season by a terrific drive to the Cinder track. Mexico We played Mexico on the Wednesday before the Oswego game. They were clearly outplayed at all parts of the game. Two Mexican pitchers were driven from the mound while the score was being run up to ll to I. Oswego The Oswego team was far more experienced than ours. They presented a veteran team, all of their first team players having played at least for one year. Oswego's players were also much older and they presented the best team that they have had in years. We were unable to cope with McHenry's slants but this is not to our discredit for C. B. A. scored only -I runs against Oswego while we scored 6. Central The team seemed to be weakened in the Central game because of their anxiety to redeem themselves after the Oswego game. The errors of most every player contributed to Central's score. The game ended with the score, Central 12, Fulton -I. Two double plays by our players featured the game. Mrs. Taylor-"Has daddy had his break- fast?" Margaret-"I don't know." Mrs. Taylor-"Well, ask him, then." ' Margaret-"I did mother and he doesn't know either." Soph.-"How old is an electric chair?" Frosh.-"Gosh, how old?" Soph.-"Old enough to get Gray." W Y X Yes, Dan, you can have all the -ielly you want, but please keep out of the traiiic jam. 34 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Golf Team The Fulton High golf team composed of Al Reynolds and Bill Holt is making a good record this season. So far they have won three and lost three. In all except one or two matches they have played like champions. All of the six matches have been decided in the last one or two holes. The first match was played with Oswego Normal with Fulton winning after an extra hole of play. Holt sunk a beautiful putt on the 18th green for a birdie 2 while Reynolds duplicated the feat on the Hrst hole of the play-off with a par 5. This was a very close match. The second match was played with Vocational High in Syracuse on the Tuscarora Country Club Links. Voca- tional won this match 4 up and 3 to play. Our boys did not get started until the fifth hole when Reynolds made a birdie. The next match was played with Oneida and Oswego. Oneida had low score with 189. Oswego had 196 and Fulton 197. The Fulton boys did not play well all that day. Vocational came down to Fulton where they met their first defeat in three years. Fulton won six of the first nine while the best Vocational could do was to tie three. On the last nine they did not play so well but won 2 up and 1 to play. Our boys defeated the Holy Rosary golfers in Fulton 3 up and 1 to play. It was the first time in quite a few years that Fulton had defeated a Rosary team. Bill and Al went to Oneida where they met defeat against Sherrill and Oneida. Sherrill won by 8 strokes over Fulton and 6 over Oneida. This was played on the fast Oneida Community Links in Sherrill. Fulton has three matches left to be played. A return match with Rosary in Syracuse and a match with Oswego Normal and Oswego High. Girls' Basket Ball This is the first season in many years that Fulton High has had a girls' varsity basket ball team. The team was organized by the combined efforts of our coach, Miss Edmunds, and our worthy Principal, Mr. Strough. The girls' team of Mexico High School first challenged us to battle. Our team stumbled out on the floor with trembling knees to meet our apponents. Our knees ceased to trem- ble, however, when the score mounted rapidly in our favor. VVe were so encouraged by the success of our first game that we decided to tackle the girls' team of Red Creek. After sending these basketeers back to their native fields, defeated, Pulaski decided that we needed a lesson so they sent their Academy team down to give it to us. Much to their surprise and even more to ours, they failed in their purpose. Right after Xmas we went to Pulaski on the 20th Century Limited which runs from Oswego to Pulaski. We never realized that we had such a rough team until we arrived on their court. It was then discovered that meek and mild Anna McGinnis had turned into a lion. We expected that she wouldn't even be allowed to finish the game because of her rough tactics. As we decided on our trip to Pulaski that the 20th Century Limited was too swift for us, we chartered a bus to take us to Mexico. Upon our arrival, we shivered for more than one reason until the snow-bound referee arrived. In spite of the fact that the ball hit the ceiling more often than it went in the basket, we won the game. However, Miss Edmunds thought since our work on the court didn't do her justice we might just as well use a little energy by pushing the bus back to Fulton. In spite of our recent successes we awaited the Oswego game in no peace- ful state of mind. However, the real game was worse than anything we had pictured in our imaginations. We felt like the tortoise trying to keep up to the hare. Our game didn't end as well as the story, however, for the tortoise, in this case, lost the game. After this defeat we thought we needed more practice before tackling them again, so we agreed to play Minetto in our gym.

After this little spree came the final clash with Oswego. We felt that we had a better chance to win this time since we were playing on our own court, the score was close until the last few minutes when the experience of the Oswego Girls turned the score in their favor. Block letters were awarded to all girls who played in every game but one. The freshmen won the interclass series.

Boys' Interclass Basket Ball The season of l926-l927 witnessed the inaugurating of interclass basket ball. Teams were organized to repre- sent each class after the call had been sent forth. According to the schedule the Seniors and Freshmen were the lirst to light it out. We dropped a hard- fought game to the lower classmen after leading for three-quarters of the game. We next defeated the Sopho- mores after playing off a tie game. From then on we found our bearings evidently, for the juniors, Sophomores, and Freshmen were disposed of in the order named. Finally we took on the juniors who had eliminated the other teams for the championship. Running true to form we took the Juniors into 36 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK -FULTON HIGH SCHOOL camp, thus capturing the champion- ship. Having set the example we sincerely hope that the Seniors of '28 'may repeat it. By the way-ain't we Seniors nice? Freshmen-J. Dix, Captain Sophomores-W.

THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-l"Ul.'l'ON HIGH SCHOOL 37 5565" MQ?-'I Social 5 is r4X93':l Dances The Pi Tau held their Annual Thanksgiving Dance in the Quirk Ball- room. Madeline Searles was chair- man of the dance and she surely did give much attention to the selection of the orchestra and to the general affairs of the evening. The Ballroom was beautifully trimmed in the Sorority Colors of orange and white with fall colors harmonizing. As usual favors were passed out and refreshments were served in the Kandyland downstairs. The Annual Football Banquet given by the Alpha Kappa Chapter of Pi Phi was held in the dining hall of the American Legion rooms on the night of November l5, l926. joe Casey was toastmaster. He called on Prof. I.. H. Strough, Dr. Legg and james " Dobbieu lfrceman for speeches. The P. K. li. held their Annual Xmas Dance in the Quirk Ballroom. Gus Burns and his music makers brought all their instruments here from Syracuse that ni ht and the evening passed along altogetier too rapidly for all Fultonians and their guests. At the wee hour of twelve, the usual customs were followed out when noise makers and other toys were passed out among the crowd. From that time on, the dancers rivaled with the orchestra as to which could make the most noise. No prize was awarded. Pi Phi Valentine Ball. Ah! that was the night! The "Orange Peelers" of Syracuse had their very best music out that night and sure did make use of their talents. The chairman of this dance was Wesley Allen assisted by "Bim" Crahan, Bill Foster, Cart Ure. During intermission at the hour of twelve, favors were passed around and also noise makers, hats and other articles which go to add pleasure to a dance. Again at Easter the P. K. E. took first place and again made an unusual effort putting on the dance. At this time Art Benning came all the way from Buffalo to help our lads make the dance a huge success. Which of course they did. James Cornelius Fannin was the lad to whom all credit should be given for he left out nothing which goes to make u a dance. Althougli Friday the 13th proves unlucky for some, not so for the Pi Tau girls. The Maytime Dance was held on this day in May and it was a huge success. Teresa O'Brien was chair- man and she chose I.arr Harington for the honor of pouring forth his music here and he sure did do his stuff! The orchestra was hidden by the Pi Tau banner and May flowers and there was a huge May Pole in the center of the fioor from which hung the streamers of the colors of the Sorority. At Mid- night the favors were passed out and re reshments were served. Three o'clock came too soon for all but they went away with the knowledge that there was another Maytime Dance just one year away. Commencement Day means joy or sorrow to the Seniors. The P. K. E. has realized this fact and so it lans to eliminate some of the heartacl-ie of that night by giving the Commence- ment Ball. This is the last time that many of us will ever meet. The Ball is to be a "get-together" and a farewell all in one. Tommy Meyers is chair- man ofthe dance and we all know that he is putting forth his best effort to make the Commencement Ball, as usual, "the dance" of the year. It will be held in the Quirk Ballroom. Student Frolic The Student Frolic was the biggest social event of the school year. The main idea of the frolic was to see which class could get the most of the prizes, and actual count showed the number to be about equally divided between the juniors and the Seniors. The Sopho- mores ran the Juniors a close race for the attendance honors, as there were 64 per cent of the class of '28 present, while the Sophomores had 57 per cent of their members on hand. 38 THIS SENIOR YEAR BOO K-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL The count of the classes was made at 8:45 o'clock, the first event of a number of contests scheduled. For its reward, the class of '28 was given a box of marshmallows, actual count showing the box to contain 216 pieces. The class president, Len Root, was among those " not present," so little Carlton Ure was elected president pro-tem, and received the prize from the hands of James E. Lanigan, "prizemaster" of the evening. VVilliam Foster, with Miss Geraldine Scott as his escort, led the grand march, which started at 9:30 p.m. During the march, a prize was given to the twenty-third boy and twenty-third girl in line, Alan Hazelwood and Miss Josephine Bixby were the lucky winners. One of the drawing cards of the evening's entertainment was featured when Miss Teresa O'Brien, one of our prominent Seniors, and Prof. Frank Randall featured a waltz of sixty years ago, and a waltz of thirty years ago. Both of the participants in the waltz demonstrated to those present that they were well versed in the Terpsichorean art,and drew applause from the audience. Hundreds of novel features, as well as a great number of prizes, were seen during the evening. Among the many dances and features were included balloon dances, cut-in dances, where various girls held prizes for a certain cut-in partner, to be determined by the number who had cut in before, a leap year cut-in dance, in which the prizes were distributed to the girls by the boys on the same basis as the preceding dance, spot dances, and the renowned Paul Jones struggle. ' As is usual at dances now-a-days, the students tired of tripping the light fantastic eventually. The musicians were ordered to suspend their activities, and those present repaired to the auditorium of the school, where an entertainment was given by the faculty. The title of the "play" given by our teachers was "The Silver Sandals." The cast of the play was made up entirely of faculty members, and each and every one of our renowned in- structors was seen in some part or other. Miss Gertrude Johnston played the "lead,', taking the part of the princess, Miss Marjorie Dickerson, the king, Miss Marie Schroeder, the queen, and Miss Hazel Riley, the prince. The play was a very humorous one, and the students unanimously tendered a vote of congratulations to the faculty actors. Decorations of wistaria, interspersed with 300 Japanese parasols, were hung about the large gymnasium, lending a colorful aspect to the entire scheme of things. During the evening, serpentine and noisemakers were distributed among guests who numbered more than 500, and the serpentine mingled with the already beautiful decorative scheme, made the effect even more harmonious. Every student in the school had some part in the work of the arrangements and preparations for the frolic, which was one of the best of its kind held in the history of the school, and which has outdone anything that has been at- tempted in the line before. To our boys and girls, particularly the latter, goes much credit for the decorations, spoken of above. The girls of the school prepared the artificial wistaria, with which the' gymnasium was decorated, and the boys hung the decorations and prepared the gym- nasium for the frolic, under the direction of the faculty members. During the dancing, the girls of the home-making department served ice-cream in the cafeteria, and punch was served to the guests during the evening. The frolic demonstrated to the students and faculty of the school that the townspeople are willing to get be- hind any high school affair, and help to put it over. There have been times, to be sure, when the townspeople did not turn out as much as might be expected, but all in all they certainly helped us with the frolic, and we extend them a vote of thanks. The High School Circus In the language of some of the spectators, the High School Circus of May 16th and 17th was a wow. After seeing the big parade in the afternoon, everyone could hardly await the opening performance. That parade, augmented by silvery-horned musicians from the Citizens Band, will long be remembered in Fulton. It had Forepaugh's line of march looking like the chain gang. The High School was the Mecca of all joy' seekers for two evenings. So THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 39 much so that S350 was realized by the scrool, and "a good time was had by a . An army of ticket sellers and barkers greeted the arrivals at the front door. Jim Fannin, Fran Hartnett,Ted Prawda, Arba Jennings, Bennie Barnard, Bill Mehegan, Harold Hart, Ed Quirk and Tommy Meyers outshone any circus ticket sellers in any circuit. The crowd was hurried to the gym, first, to see the sideshows before the BIG-SHOW upstairs opened. As the arrivals entered the gym a brigade of girls, commanded by Anna McGinnis, immediately swamped them with ice cream, pop, pop corn and hot dogs. Expert barkers could be heard en- larging upon the wonders in the two sideshows on the gym Hoor. In the freak shows, Mahlon Freeman, Arba Ilennings, Jim Fannin, and Beards ey Sperry kept up a line of persuasive babble that nobody could resist. In the center of the gym, Arnold Hazelwood presided over the "VVild Man of Borneo Pit Show." And there were some real freaks. Miss Vera johnson outshone the Wool- worth building as the tall woman, while as the bearded woman, Miss Ethel Blackman displayed a crop of hirsute ornaments that was the envy of the lion in the animal tent. Miss Catherine Goss charmed snakes like a professional, and the Misses Marjorie and Betty Gwynne were recognized as the Siamese twins. "Six" Whitcomb, as the strong man, did everything but lift the piano, and Ruth Gibbons, as the fat lady, startled everyone by her amazing proportions. Margaret Judd and Billy Hollingsworth were introduced as Mr. and Mrs. Tom Thumb, while George Roe nearly wrecked the spectators by living up to his title as the " Black Wild Man." In the pitshow Le Roy Pitcher, as the Wild man of Borneo, displayed a very ferocious disposition. "Mert" Tram- blay "barked" for the fortune tellers CMISSCS Godfrey, O'Neill, Shea and Eldridgej. Then there was the menagerie, where Kenneth Darling and Allan Hazelwood performed as the trained giraffe. Fred Guinup had a real assignment, being in charge of the man-eating tiger, who we later found out was Newell Hollings- worth, another representative from Fairgrieve Junior High. Lastly there was the museum, to which everyone was admitted free of charge. Here there was everything from "Grave Diggers" to "Swimming Matches." The circus proper with its one-ring performance was upstairs in the audi- torium. Here Joe Hillick was ring master. First came the grand parade of all the performers in the circus. The clowns, who were under the supervision of Albert Halbritter and Miss Edmonds, had the rafters heaving with laughter. The acrobats who had been training hard, and who had been under the direction of Stacy Short and Miss Edmonds, furnished a big thrill for everyone by their daring stunts. " Bud" Parks made a big hit as leader of the clown band in the opening performance. However, his efforts later in the evening proved too much for him and he was obliged to relinquish this leadership to Salvadore Chalone. Bob Cook and Gordon Hornibrook behaved admirably as Miss Norma Steven's trained baby elephant, and Elizabeth Fannin, Lila Jarvis, Doreen Little and Elizabeth Hopman did everything but eat oats, as the four educated equines. Miss Dorothea Curtis, as the world's greatest bareback rider, put her steed through some difiicult tricks. Miss Pauline Elliott performed grace- fully on the slack Cvery slackj rope. Miss Janet Forsythe put the trained seal Cyes it was Harold Smithj through his tricks and Miss Margaret Jennings was busily employed in training the giraffe. Fred Guinup did a daring animal act with the lion and tiger. Catherine Hillick and Margaret Stone made a big hit as the two ballad singers, while "Evie Zoe" Waldhorn and Madalyn O'Brien displayed their talent as ballet dancers. Last, but not least, came the Min- strel, with "Teddy" Freeman and "Bud" Park as our famous end-men. Jack Coleman acted as interlocutor. A large number of students composed the chorus. With all, it was a great affair and a howling success from every standpoint. LHAZEL Hotunoswoarn. 40 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 2'-SGT'-1 K-Q25 ,Q Literatu at ----lr4L93-I The Meteor of Fate Out in space, 432,000 miles from the earth, there exists a strange and weird panorama. The perpetual dark of the ether void is punctuated with beautiful clusters of fiery stars, most of which are lost to the sight of man because of the earth's atmosphere. Off in one direc- tion gleams the sun and in the opposite direction the earth, its satellite, rotates and careens on its journey around the solar luminary. At this particular time, out of the dark void, came a huge meteor, one of the cosmic Wanderers of the seas of space. With the speed of ten miles per second, this forty-five ton giant sped through the vacuum straight at the rotating sphere 432,000 miles distant. Only one power could have stopped the inevitable collision between earth and meteor. The moon could have swerved the meteor from its course by lunar attraction but at this time such a thing could not have happened for the moon was around on the other side of the earth. The meteor traveled so fast as to be lost from sight immediately after passing. The hot tropical sun beat down upon the dense foliage of one of East Africa's unexplored jungles. Through the jun- gle plodded a party of hunters accom- panied by twenty British soldiers and as many native bush-heaters. The hunting party consisted of Phillip C. Hastings, his son, John, his daughter, Mary, and Harry Kent. Representa- tives of the English elite, they had but recently arrived in East Africa to hunt big game in the vicinity of Lake Tanganyika. "Let's strike off from the main party and join the rest later," ventured John Hastings, "perhaps we shall have the luck of scaring up some game." "We are going to do a little hunting of our own," stated John's father to Captain Barton. " VVe shall rejoin your company at the clearing north of here." This was rather a foolish idea, for a short time later the four hunters found themselves lost. "VVell, what shall we do?" queried John disconsolately as he sat on a log and dropped his gun to the ground. , "I have a little compass in the back of my pocketmirror," ventured Mary. With these words she produced the combination mirror and compass which she sat on a log while the little group studied it to ascertain their bearings. "That way is north," began the elderly diplomat, "and in this other direction . . ." But he never finished, a noise of snapping twigs and trampled bushes followed by a shrill war cry sounded in back of them. Turning quickly, the intrepid four gazed upon a horde of black warriors. One look at the filed teeth, the faces daubed with paint, the regalia, the spears and other warlike appearances was enough to impress the four with the realization that they were in the hands of cannibals! Harry raised his rifie and fired point blank at the leading savage who fell in his tracks. The remaining cannibals charged the four and a battle royal ensued for a few brief moments. Phillip C. Hastings fired and wounded one of the demons before two more downed him. Mary had laid down her rifle when she had sought her compass so she had not had time to retrieve it but she beat with her fists at one of the warriors who roughly tried to sieze her. Before he was overpowered, John felled this particular savage with his rifie butt. When the savages charged, Harry gave one a blow with his fist, doubled another one up with a kick in the stomach, after which he grappled with two more until he sank unconscious in the jungle verdure from a rap over the head with a spear. The determined fight had proved futile from a practical standpoint but THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 41 each of the four felt a certain con- solation in knowing that they all had done their best in resistance to capture. All except Harry, who had no idea on the matter for at the present he lay dead to the world. On through space catapulted the huge meteor. On and on toward the great revolving earth hurtled the forty- five ton mass eating up the distance at the rate of 36,000 miles per hour in its mad speed. It now had but 360,000 miles to go. The great rotating sphere loomed up larger than ever as the meteor lessened the distance between earth and stellar void. When Harry regained consciousness, his first sensation was a steady jogging and numb pains at his wrists and ankles. Opening his eyes, he gazed into the ferocious countenance of one of the Cannibals who was carrying the handles of two spears to which Harry was bound. Turning his head slightly side- ways, he discerned another savage in back of him who carried the other ends of the two spear shafts. Harry craned his neck to look farther down the trail and saw his chum, John Hastings, treated in the same manner. Harry took it for granted that Mary and her father were being carried along the trail behind him. They journeyed on in this fashion for about two hours before the came to a palisaded village from which came sounds of life. Before entering the village, the warriors stood the captives on their feet with the bonds still on their wrists but removed from their ankles. Pushing the four captives before them, the savages opened the village gate. Through the filth of the one and only avenue of the village walked the prisoners accompanied by their captors and stared at by the inhabitants from toddling infants to aged men and women. On each side of the village street stood twelve or fifteen cylindrical thatched huts, eight feet across and seven feet high. At one end of the village was a hut about twice the size of any other and to this it was apparent that the captives were being led. As they passed down the street between lines of blacks, one old tooth- less crone reached out bony lingers and pinched Mary's shapely arm. Mary shrank away in shuddering disgust as a nausea swept over her. "Dainty meat, dainty meat," cackled the old black hag to one of her neighbors. "Food for all, if that old nilly-wit of a Bongo does not aspire to add the lovely white creature to his retinue of mates." The four prisoners did not under- stand the guttural language of the East African natives so the remarks about them went unheeded. They passed on to the most spacious hut of all, which was approximatel fourteen feet in diameter and nine feet high. The canni- bal chief, Bongo, stood at the entrance and stared at the approaching party. One of the captors addressed Bongo: "Great Bongo, our hunting party was favored by the forest devil who watches over us. We chanced to find and capture these four persons though it cost us the life of Wrangowa and a wound to Sragk. Bongo looked over the ill-fated four who had not exchanged words since their capture. He gazed with avid eyes on Mary for even such a blunt, ignorant savage as Bongo could not but take notice of her unusual person- ality. Ifasked why he was attracted to her, Bongo would probably have said that her beauty captivated his at- tention, but a psychologist would have known better. Mary was charming as well as beautiful. A woman does not have to be beautiful to be charming, but she has to be charming to be beautiful. "I shall reserve the woman for my mate, take her, witch doctor, and feed her of the magic herb which will drive from out of her all evil spirits," in- structed the cannibal chief. "Tonight, we shall feast well on the other three. Prepare the fires, the Hesh pots and the stakes. In the meanwhile secure these prisoners from escape." "Just as I thought!" cursed the aged crone on the outer edge of the as- sembled crowd of savages, "a good morsel lost in order to appease the vanity and pleasures of that old buzzard! May the vultures tear out the eyes from his living body." As the aged witch doctor hobbled away with the frightened girl, warriors seized the three men and promptly tied them to stakes driven into the ground in 42 THE SENIOR YEAR BOO K-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL preparation for the death-dance which would take place after dark. " There is but one hope for us," spoke the elderly diplomat to the boys as the three were escorted to their respective stakes," and that is the arrival of Captain Barton and his soldiers." "They will have to make good time," stated john, "for already the sun is beginning to sink below the western horizon." At the close of the afternoon, the hunting party discovered that the diplomat, his son and daughter, and Harry Kent were missing. Captain Barton instructed one of the negroes, who was proficient in the arts of trailing, to follow the trail of the lost four. It was near nightfall before they came upon the dead cannibal and the signs of recent conflict. "In the hands of the cannibalsln ex- ploded Captain Barton. "Quick! We must rescue them before it is too latell' Impeded by the darkness and knowing only the general direction of Bongo's village, the rescue party made slow progress through the jungle where detours were often necessary to avoid impenetrable undergrowths. Chester Barton urged on his followers with a dread feeling that his rescue party would prove but one of revenge, arriving too late to save the unhappy prisoners from their cruel fate. Now entering the shadow cast by the huge sphere, the meteor whizzed on toward the darkened half, or night side, of the earth. It was now but 90,000 miles distant and its speed had not slackened in the least. Its speed was increased by terrestrial gravitation, if altered at all. Darkness settled over the cannibal village where preparations were being made for the feast. The fires were built and the cooking cauldrons dragged forth to be put into use after the torture of the death-dance. The captives waited in suspense, nervously wondering which one of them would be first to go. Presently two huge negroes entered, bearing on their shoulders a long heavy pole which they drove into the ground ex- actly in the center of the village street. Bongo, with some of his warriors, approaching the three victims, sud- denly reached a decision. He turned to his tribesmen and spoke: K'First, untie the old one and lead him to the stake, his flesh is old, therefore tough, and must stand longer cooking." The savages did their chief's bidding and soon Phillip C. Hastings, English diplomat, stood tied to the post facing death by slow torture. Before he had been bound to the stake, his clothes from neck to waistline had been rudely torn off. The women of the village, seated in a wide circle around the pole to which the ill-fated man was bound, carried crude drums and sticks. On the inside of the circle stood the warriors of the village, Bongo at their head, on the outside stood the old men, old women and the children. Bonlires cast a lurid glow over the whole scene, throwing into ghostly illumination the painted faces and the filed teeth of the cruel cannibals. Above, the starlit universe twinkled and on every side of the palisaded village towered the giant trees of the mysterious jungle. John and Harry strained their ears for a sound of their friends who might yet arrive in time. They heard nothing and gradually the conviction grew upon them that the soldiers would arrive too late. "I wonder where Mary is?" spoke Harry suddenly. " Imprisoned in that second hut from the other end of the village," said John. "I'll tell you what we can do,,' offered Harry, "when they release us from these stakes to give us the death- dance, what do you say to making a break for the jungle. It is much better to die fighting than to submit to their Hendish torture." "Even though we should effect our escape in that manner, it would be too late to save father," observed John, "but we can try it." "Anyway,l' quoth Harry philosophi- cally, " if we don't succeed, I hope that I give them indigestionf' At this juncture, the women of the village began beating their drums and chanting a wierd song to which the warriors formed a dancing circle that moved slowly around the doomed man. The song of death grew to a vibrant howling as the savage tribesmen danced themselves into a maniacal frenzy. THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 43 The meteor was now so close to the earth that the topography was dis- tinguishable. Straight ahead in the meteor's path, 6,000 miles down through space lay the broad continent of Africa immersed in darkness. Ten minutes would elapse before the meteor entered the earth's atmosphere to be heated red-hot by the friction of the air and then plunge its forty-five tons into the earths crust. Due to this same friction of the air it would take twenty- five seconds for the cosmic wanderer of space to penetrate the 200-mile depths of earth s atmosphere in which it would appear as a brilliant shooting star. Harry and John gazed on the scene before them with dread for each knew what was coming as the death-dance neared its climax. Soon the leading savage would dart his spear lightly on the doomed man, drawing a red trickle of blood with its needle-like point. This would be the signal for at least fifty more spears brandished by the cannibals to pierce every square inch of the body, even the eyes. The two boys had hoped and prayed for the coming of the soldiers but their hope died within them for the fatal moment was at hand. How long would it be before Bongo tapped the bound man with his spear? Thus soliloquized John as he gazed broken-heartedly at his father's face. ohn lifted his face to the starlit eavens in mute supplication as from his entire being issued a silent prayer. Across his vision, far up in the sky, he discerned a shooting star. He dropped his eyes to the death-dance once more. Horrors! A tiny stream of blood trickled from the diplomat's shoulder where Bongo had touched lightly with his spear! Fifty or more spears were being raised by the cannibals in pre- paration for the death-dealing fusillade of body punctures! But the spears were never cast! At the precise moment the spears were raised, a roaring, riuggernaut of death pcecipitated itself into Bongo's village! 'ith terrific speed, the meteor, in- tensely heated by friction with the earth's atmosphere, hurled itself into the cluster of huts with a vibrant explosion that threw up cascades of dirt, debris, stones and hut fragments! Pandemonium broke loose among the frightened and superstitious natives! Some were thrown violently to the ground by the concussion while those assembled nearest the spot where the meteor landed had their lives snuffed out instantly! The hell of the death- dance had been frustrated and the screaming, terror-stricken cannibals fled into the jungle! Flying debris had cracked the pole to which Harry was bound, partially releasing him. He struggled des- perately to complete his escape. Many of the thatched huts were aflame and the fire was spreading rapidly! Harry tugged feverishly at his bonds with the encouragement of John ringin in his ears! At last his hands were gee and he started on the thongs that bound his ankles to the post. He must hurry for already Hames were creeping up the sides of the hut in which Mary lay imprisoned! With a Hnal effort he freed himself and raced to the burning hut, the roof and one side already a mass of flames! At the entrance he fumbled with the latch and then withdrew the three wooden bars that secured the door. Flinging it open, he was met by a rush of thick smoke-and Mary lay un- conscious on the floor of the hut! Lifting her supple body tenderly in his arms, he carried her to the outer air. With the draught of air created by the opening of the door, the hut they had just quitted burst into a seething furnace of flames! When Mary opened her eyes, after breathin clear air once more, Harry left her for a moment to effect the re- lease of her father and brother. Seizing a knife from the girdle of a dead savage, he cut the bonds of both father and son. Suddenly they heard a hail of greeting and turning found Captain Barton approaching, followed by his soldiers and negro attendants. Hearty greetings were exchanged and explanations were forthcoming. With the rising of the sun on the following morning, the hunting party slowly wended its way back through the jungle to the outposts of civilization. At the end of the long line walked Mary Hastings and Harry Kent, supreme in their paramount happiness. --NEIL R. JONES. 44 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL Success or Failure? Despondently, Roger Kent regarded the small, pink slip of paper upon the table before him. Beside the slip lay a large open envelope and a bulky, folded manuscript. Another failure. Idly, Kent's fingers moved over the keys of the little portable typewriter on the table. He sighed wistfully and shook his head. "It's no use," he muttered, softly. "As a writer, I'm a failure. I'm not original. I'm simply mulling over the archaic stuff that has already been overworked. It won't do!" The room was not calculated to create an atmosphere of genial comfort or faculties for deep thinking. It was a small, cheerless, barren affair. On its walls were no brightening ornaments whatsoever, the wall paper was old and very dirty. A small cot bed occupied one corner, there was one dilapidated chair. The table before which Kent sat was small and rickety. His sole illumination was supplied by an oil lamp with a dirty, smoke-blackened chimney. Kent picked up the manuscript and proceeded to read and re-read it several times. At each perusal, his feeling of irritation heightened. Finally, with a disgusted exclamation, he flung the manuscript back upon the table and rose to his feet. A scowl of annoyance wrinkled his usually good-humored countenance. "Boshl" he declared, forcefully. "That's all it is-just boshl Good Lord, how did I ever come to write such rubbish, anyway? I'm going to take a walk and see ifI can clear some of the cobwebs out of my brain!" A heavy knock sounded upon the door. Kent started. He recognized that knock, it was the landlady. "Come in," he called in some trepidation. A The door opened, and a big Irish woman stepped ponderously into the room. Placing two great red hands upon her hips, she regarded Kent belligerently. "I want my back rent, Mr. Kent," she announced, Han' I want it now. Sure, an' 'tis long enough I've waited for it, so 'tisli' "VVell, er--I---I, that is--I can't give it to you right now, Mrs. O'Grady. You see, er--I, that is, well--.U Kent floundered hopelessly. The woman's jaw jutted out pugna- ciously. "Yes? well, Mr. Kent you just listen to this: I want that money by tomorrow night or out you go! Sure, an' that's final, so 'tisl" Kent attempted a weak smile. "I,ll try to get the money for you by to- morrow," he promised. "All right. Don't come back here without it. That writin' machine o' yours will help if you can't get the money, but it won't make us only about half square at that!" His heart sank. If he had to give up his typewriter, he would be up against it-hard. He would not be able to procure another right away. Yet the landlady was right. She could not afford to keep boarders for nothing- and she naturally would not allow him to take with him anything which she might appropriate as a means of securing her rent of twenty-nine dollars and fifty cents. No, he did not blame her, but it was rather hard on him. "I'll try to get the money for you, Mrs. O,Grady," he said again, but his tones lacked conviction. How could he get it? The landlady stalked out of the room. Donning a hat and coat, Kent presently followed her. In another moment he was in the street, swinging along at a brisk pace. There is an old saying that the clothes make the man. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although Roger Kent's suit was worn and shabby, his hat a battered relic which had seen much wear, and his shoes rustic in appearance, there was about the man an undefinable something, an unconquerable air that defied failure. As he walked, he carried his shoulders well back and moved with an alert, swift stride. In his manner was a sort of nervous tenseness, a suggestion of panther-like suppleness. He was not tall, and neither was he short, but rather of medium height witha slim waist which sloped gracefully upwards THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 45 to a pair of shoulders of splendid breadth. But it was his face which would have held your gaze the longest. It was a strong, determined, characterful face, a face that revealed a rugged will. The features were sharply defined. In the gray depths of his eyes fiamed the mysterious, unquenchable fires of a dauntless soul. His square, powerful chin denoted firmness of purpose and a fighting nature. Thick masses of blond hair, slightly streaked with premature gray at the temples, curled in tight rings to his head. It was perhaps eleven o'clock in the evening, and the streets were nearly deserted where Kent was walking. Occasionally, he passed a pedestrian. As a bitter November wind was blowing, he was forced to walk rapidly to keep warm. He shivered involuntarily when the withering blasts pierced his inade- quate clothing. A few swirling fiakes of snow partly obscured the electric street lamps. ' Kent's mind was in a turmoil. Twenty-nine dollars and fifty cents- twenty-nine dollars and fifty cents! Over and over again the phrase drummed in chaotic confusion through his brain. He pondered on how to secure the money, but he knew that it was a hopeless and futile effort. There was no solution-he could not get it. Tomorrow night he would lose his typewriter, he would be turned out with- out a cent in his pocket and no prospects. Quick footsteps sounded in back of Kent. Presently, a young woman clad in a plain gray coat passed by him. She was perhaps twenty feet in advance of him when he erceived that she had dropped sometliing. Approaching the object, he discovered that it was a purse. He picked it up and hurried after her. "I beg your pardon," he said, touching her lightly upon the arm, "but you dropped your purse. Allow me to return it to you." "Thank you very much," she said in a soft, sweet voice that was surprisingly rich and vibrant. She accepted the purse, Hashing him a smile of gratitude. "Not at all," he smiled, bowing. "I am very happy to be of service to so charming a young lady." The girl fiushed, but it was with pleasure, not anger. In his voice there there had been nothing bold, merely a sincere respect and admiration. And truly she merited it, for she was very pretty-not in a fiashy, dazzling way, ut a sort of quiet, wholesome beauty. She was of medium height, slender as a reed. Eyes as blue as the heavens and with apparently no bottom to their clear depths looked at him shyly from beneath long, beautiful, dark lashes. Wisps of ebony-black hair were visible from under the brim of her hat, her lips were full and cherry red. The girl passed on. In a moment more she turned a corner and was gone. Kent walked on thoughtfully, a pleasing picture of her loveliness printed indelibly in his mind's eye. He was an ardent admirer of beautiful women. The world now seemed a brighter and less cheerless place. His own trite and mundane cares were, for the moment, utterly dispelled from his thoughts. Then, suddenly, Kent uttered a sharp exclamation and broke into a run. A scream-a woman's scream, shrill and filled with an unutterable fear, had sounded ahead of him. He quickly reached the corner. Dashing around it, he saw the girl whose purse he had returned, struggling in the arms of two men, one tall and thing the other of shorter stature, but of heavier build. Beside the curb stood a long, gray automobile. With a shout of anger, Kent sprang towards them. They released the girl and faced him, their faces murderously dark, their fists knotted. Kent did not hesitate. Reckless of consequences, the fighting instinct surging within him, he sprang to the combat. The tall man colla sed limply as Kent's Est crashed into his face, the other dove headlong for Kent's knees. They went down in a heap, Kent underneath. He felt the man's steel, rope-like fingers dig into the fiesh of his neck. A bloated face leered into his. The girl uttered a wild cry of despair and agony. Kent heard and struggled des erately. In vain. That grip held as tliou h it were in truth a steel band. His Tread swam dizzily, he wondered, vaguely, if this were to be his end. Although that inexorable clutch was swiftly 46 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL turning his brain sick, his mind still functioned automatically. He remem- bered a wrestling trick which he had learned-the famous "knee punch" of the South Sea Islanders. It was his last resort. Drawing his knees up, he drove them upward with all his re- maining strength, catching his op- ponent squarely in the pit of the stomach. VVith an agonized groan, the man released Kent's throat. Kent yvrithed from under him and rose to his CCY. Then something fell with crushing force upon his head. A blaze of light danced before his eyes, he crumpled soundlessly to the pavement, a curious ringing in his ears. He seemed to be sinking, sinking into the depths of an abysmal sea. To his ears came the sound of a scream of terror, faint and, seemingly, far away. His consciousness was slipping, slipping, slipping . . . The ringing in his head became the sullen roar of a Niagara. Then Stygian blackness and total oblivion descended over him. II As his senses slowly returned to him, Roger Kent experienced little of the feeling of life. He seemed to be floating interminably upon a hazy white cloud. His head throbbed pain- fully, vaguely, he wondered what had happened. VVhat was wrong with him? Why was he lying here inert? Then the events of the night came rushing back to his memory. His head felt queer. He raised a hand heavily to where his exploring fingers encountered a thick bandage bound snugly about his head. He realized that he was in a bed, warm and comfortable. Something soft and gentle touched his fevered brow. Dimly he sensed that it was a hand, but those tantalizing mists persisted in obscuring his vision. Gradually, however, they cleared, and Kent opened his eyes-to stare into the anxious blue eyes of the girl whom he had attempted to aid. He smiled faintly, and she uttered a little cry of gladness and relief. "Thank God, you are conscious at last!" she breathed, softly. "I was beginning to think . . ." "What?" he asked, weakly, as she paused. "Nothing Only-only it has been five days since you were injured!" "Five days!" Kent stared at her in incredulous amazement. "You are joking." "Indeed I am not," she declared. "Five days?" he repeated. "Five days-and you've had me on your hands all that timell' Kent noted that the girl's cheeks were pale and wang her eyes lusterless, with dark circles beneathlthem. She was worn out by loss of sleep. In his breast stirred an impulsive gratitude for this slim, blue- eyed stranger. His gaze wandered about the little, cheaply furnished room and fell upon a pile of blankets and a pillow in an opposite corner of the room. A deep wave of shame swept through him. She had given him, a stranger, her bed. Once again his eyes met hers. "You shouldn't have done that!" he said huskily. "I-I'm sorry!" The girl gripped his hand in both her own, her beautiful eyes glowing. A little thrill coursed through Kent as he felt the soft warmth of her touch. 'KlVIy friend, what I have done for you is nothing when compared with what you did for mel" she cried. "I did nothing," he depreciated. "You did! It was splendid! You asked no questions-you did not even know me, but you were very nearly killed defending me. Oh, my friend, if you knew from what you saved me. You do not, but I-I know-." Her voice ended in a little choked sound. She grasped his hand more firmly. "And-and after having been injured while saving me, is it any more than right that I should care for you until you are well and strong again?" "You should have had me sent to a hospital. The people will talk. You know, a girl living alone, a man in the case .... Syracuse is the same as every other city!" She was silent, and Kent, watching her, saw a deep Hush mantle her face. A single creeping drop, a tear, rolled down either cheek. She dashed them away quickly, but he grasped her hands in contrition. "Forgive me," he pleaded, "I've hurt you, and I'm a beast to have done it! I am sorry. I know you're the sweetest, purest little girl-woman on THR SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL 47 earth, and I meant nothing wrong. l'd have cut out my tongue before intentionally saying anything to hurt you. Please forgive me!" She returned the pressure of his fingers. The fiush was gone from her cheeks, there was new light in her eyes. "It's all right. I know you meant nothing wrong. And I--Iwas just thinking: we don't even know each other's name. I am Joanne Gray, and I live here on--street with my brother, Jim. He--he hasn't been home for six days." " What a blunder-head I am," laughed Kent. "I thought you lived alone. My name is Kent-Roger Kent. I'm sure we are going to be very good friends, aren't you, Miss Gray?" "I hope so," she murmured, softly, withdrawing her hand from his to place it gently upon his forehead. "Your fever is rising. You must be quiet and not talk any more, now." Woman! Woman, with her beauty, her charm, her unsolvable mystery. VVoman, who may be man's greatest inspiration or lead him in utter abase- ment of his soul to the deepest and blackest of hells. Woman-God's per- fect creation, who leaves in the wake of her life's path a blissful happiness or a wretched devastation of wrecked lives. Eight days ago Roger Kent had been a derelict, a mere, unreckonable atom in the chaos of the ever-rushing current of humanity. Today he was a new being. The energy and will power of a dozen men surged like fire in his blood. He felt like a giant, he wanted to shout aloud, to tell the whole pitiless world of his new-born determination to make good. He forgot his poverty, he cared not that he was friendless, homeless, a wanderer on the face of the earth. And all this because of a woman- the woman! For Kent loved Joanne, loved her even though he had known her but a few da s. It was not a mere fancy, a passing Fliash. Out ofa teeming world of artificial subterfuge, a world of ainted dolls and shallow frippery, he had found a woman. And because he had been searching all his life for such a woman, he loved her. In Joanne, he found the perfect embodiment of all that is fine and true and splendid in the word-Womanhood. First she told him how two police- men had come just in time to save her from being carried ofi' by the two rufiians in the big gray automobile. She explained how she had lied to the police and told them that he CKentJ was her brother-and how they had taken him to her home at her request. Then Joanne told Kent about herself. Seven years ago the Gray family, consisting of Joanne's mother, father and brother, had lived comfortably in New York on the income of the father who was an engineer. Then calamity stalked. Joanne's mother, a weak, frail little woman, caught the scarlet fever, and, after a short illness, died, leaving her little family to the care of her husband. But Fate was not yet finished with its diabolical plan. Two months later the father was killed in a train wreck. His last whispered words were a prayer. "Oh, God, care for Joanne and her brother and keep them from harm. Oh, Lord, be merciful, help ..... " And so Joanne and her brother were left alone in the world. The strength of a boy of nineteen and a girl of seventeen years pitted against life's hardships! They received the railroad company's indemnity, wandered finally to Syracuse, and, with the remaining money, bought the tiny, four-room house on--street. "For a short time we were happy," Joanne had concluded. "Then-poor Jimmy started drinking. I-Ie got in with a bad crowd, and now he--he is never home! Oh, I don't know what I shall do. I manage to earn a few dollars a week sewing for a lady near-by, but I can't find a regular position." "Joanne," Kent had told her, earnestly, "I am an author-at least, I write, anyway. You've given me an ins iration for a story that I am sure willigo over big. I cannot stay here any longer, I must find work. So, for the time being, good-by, Joanne." III And Roger Kent found work. A small position, to be sure, and a small salary, but it was work. He found a cheap room on--street where he could have peaceful, quiet evenin s. As soon as he received his first payjle paid an installment on a typewriter. Immediately, he began his story. 48 THE SENIOR YEAR BOOK-FULTON HIGH SCHOOL For three weeks, during every spare moment, Kent worked on his novel. In a single, comprehensive Hash he had discovered what was wrong with those other stories. They had been too idealistic, too fanciful, he had not injected into them any of the sordid realisms of human life. They had been pointless, with no underlying theme to originate their birth. He called his book merely, "WOMAN!" VVhat a world of power, of intrigacy, was expressed in that one word. Into each page, Kent infused a fascination that was irresistible. As his principal characters, he used two women in contrast, one, jewelled, painted and soulless, the other, gentle, kind and lovable, with a soul as pure as the blue sky. With adroit twists, he presented these characters in a manner which revealed the- mystery of a woman's heart. Constantly, in Kent's mind were thoughts of Joanne. But because of his inability to aid her, he did not visit her often. Until he sold his book, until he felt free to ask her to be his wife, it was better for his peace of mind not to see too much of her. But he needed her, he longed for her in every libre of his being. Two months passed. Kent's novel was rapidly nearing completion-and it had lived up to his fondest expecta- tions. The book would be a big success, he knew it, he felt it. It would be a sensation. Moonlight .... solitude! Man and woman. They go together. Who can fathom the complexities ofnature's laws. Upon a park bench sat a man and beside him a woman. Above them were the interlacing branches of towering, stately oaks. Dimly, the luminous glory of the moon broke through and formed a mystic twilight. The leaves rustledg the soft evening breezes whispered strange tales. Presently, the woman spoke and in her voice was a little broken note. "Roger, I am afraid for-Jimmy. He doesn't come home only four or five times a month, and when he does, he is usually half drunk!" "'It's too bad, Joanne," said the man, gently. "I'm sorry. If there is any- thing I can do--." "I'm afraid it is too late," she said sadly. For a time they were silent. Then Joanne rose slowly. Kent also got to his feet. The girl faced him, and in her eyes were unshed tears, her lips trembled. She was very appealing and wistful as she stood there-and very beautiful. Kent's mighty resolve was broken as suddenly as straw is snatched up by the wind. He forgot everything save that she was a woman and he a man and that he loved her. He grasped her hands in his and his voice broke huskily, "Joanne-Joanne! I love you, I love you!" Q For a moment, steadily, she gazed into his eyes, and into her own came a glow that almost made him sob with happiness. "Roger, I've longed to hear those words from you," she said, softly. "Day and night I have dreamed--and always my dreams have been of you. I love you, too, Roger, I love you with all my heart and soul!" "Joanne!" Kent's arms closed about her, and she raised her face to his. Their lips met in a kiss which held all the innocent passion and sweetness of youth. The girl's body relaxed limply against him, she buried her face on his breast. Kent's heart sang with joy. She loved him, she was his now to fight for against the world. And in his arms, as he held her, was an infinite gentleness that drew from Joanne's lips a low glad whispering of his name. "Joanne, am I dreaming?" he mur- mured softly. "Are you really mine?" "I love you, Roger-I am yours for all eternity!" "I thank God!" he breathed in her hair. "It is so unreal, so unbelievable. Joanne, dearest, you will marry me soon?" "Any time you wish, Roger," she told him gently. Then a worried look came into her eyes. "But-about Jimmy? I-I cannot desert him now!" He kissed her tenderly. "We shall not desert him, dear. He shall live with us. Already over fifty thousand copies of my novel have been sold. It will bring us a comfortable income, and we shall be happy, Joanne-we three!" -RALPH COLTON.
