STUDENTS OF GOLDENDALE HIGH SCHOOL

TI-IE GOLDENDALE SENTINEL
Gone, but not forgotten,
Slipped away like drops of dew,
Gone forever with our childhood,
High School Years of sunny hue.
Every day has had its sorrows,
Every hour has had its cares,
And silently, the day of parting
Has slipped upon us, unawares.
Speak not harshly of our sobloings,
Think not harshly of our tears,
It is but the dear, old memories
Coming back, of yester years.
Leaving now the ranks of study,
Going out as conquerors do,
We shall ne'er forget those cherished
High School Years of sunny hue.
May you find true pleasure as you
read these pages that echo the
happy memories of a year that is
drawing to a happy close.

The faculty of G. H. S. consists of six members this year. They have
worked very hard all year to assist in the plays, games, dances, and, in-
deed, in all the activities of this school. They have spent much time out-
side of school hours in order that the students might derive as many
benefits as possible from both the curricular and extra-curricular pro-
grams. Mr. and Mrs. Bacher and Miss Shelton have completed their fifth
year in this institution, and they have grown to be loved and admired by
the students, as well as by the community that supports the school and its
activities. Mrs. Warren, from the College of Idaho, and Miss Bleakney,
from Whitman College, have completed their second year here. They are
to be thanked whole-heartedly for the success of the school plays and Glee
Club programs. Mr. Van Woert, from the University of Washington, was
the only new member on the faculty this year. He has done his best to
build up winning athletic teams. -
The school board does everything within its power to make this school
a success and one to be proud of. It wisely selects teachers and controls
the finances of the school. The school board, this year, consists of Mr. Z.
Q. Brooks, Mr. E. D. Roe, Dr. F. H. Collins, and Mr. V. A. Bacher, Clerk.
Mr. C. W. Ramsey acted on the board after the resignation of Mr. H. J.
The Board of Control functions as the administrator of Student Body
affairs. It makes the plans for the running of the school for the year. The
members of the Board of Control are elected at the end of each school year.
Each class, with the exception of the Senior Class, nominates four mem-
bers. Two of these nominees are elected to the Board by the popular vote
of the Student Body. The representatives of the Freshman Class are
elected in the same manner at the beginning of the year. Other officers
are: President, Business Manager, Reporter, Editor of the SIMCOE,
Athletic Manager, and Yell Leader. The Athletic Manager, Reporter, and
Yell Leader are not members of the Board of Control. The members of this
Board meet at the beginning of the year and elect the Vice-President,
Treasurer, and Secretary. The success of the activities of this executive
board is to be attributed to the willing, efficient cooperation of the
students whom it represents.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
As a meteorite flashes through the sky, so the Class of 1931 has
flashed through these four short years of work and play that are now be-
hind us. At the beginning they seemed long, but now that we are at the
end, there is a panicky, half-sad feeling at the thought of leaving these
favorite halls and corridors.
Once upon a time we were Freshmen. There were forty-six of us. Our
President, Margaret Moore, Vice-president, Fred Lear, Secretary-treas-
urer, Charles Spoon, Class Representative, Douglas Ledbetter, and Class
Adviser, Miss Hale were our pilots through this first year.
After the initiation-a Senior compliment-our high school career
Our pilots for the second year were Margaret Plett, President,
Louise Dressel, Vice-president, Charles Spoon, Secretary-treasurer, Erma
Plett, Simcoe Representative, and Miss Lewis, Class Adviser. Though our
number was somewhat less than the preceding year we were just begin-
ning to be active in Student Body affairs-being represented in both
Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs, football, and boys' and girls' basketball, and
in the Torch Honor Society, a scholastic organization.
It was as upper-classmen however, that we definitely proved our
ability. We had three lettermen among the boys and four among the girls.
Our class play was an hilarious comedy entitled "Fifty-Fifty" and was
successfully presented by a chosen group. The Junior Prom was even
more successful-the decorations making a decided impression. Several
members represented the Class in both Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs, and
also in the Torch Honor Society. Our officers for this year were Margaret
Plett, President, Charles Spoon, Vice-president, Erma Plett, Secretary-
treasurer, Laura Coley, Simcoe Representative, and Miss Wilson, Class
Adviser. Charles Spoon and Louise Dressel were the Class representatives
to the Board of Control.
Now comes a review of our last year in G. H. S. Thirty-four of us
are graduating. Our Class officers are: Charles Spoon, President, Erma
Plett, Vice-president, Lois Spalding, Secretary, Marvin Kamholz, Treas-
urer, Margaret Moore, Simcoe Representative, and Mrs. Bacher, Class
Adviser. Charles Spoon and Margaret Moore are the Class representa-
tives to the Board of Control.
The following Student Body Officers are held by Seniors: Student
Body President, Vive-president, Simcoe Editor, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Three girls: Margaret McEwen, Lois Spalding, and Louise Dressel,
and one boy, Reo Young, are entitled to the Hnal Gold "GH award which is
in the form of a pin, presented at the end of the Senior year to the boys
and girls who have earned a required number of letters in the sports in
which they participated during the preceding four years.
There are eight Seniors receiving Torch Honor Pins-the final awards
for membership in the Society during three successive years'-one as a
Sophomore, one as a Junior, one as a Senior. They are: Florence Bratton,
Louise Dressel, Margaret McEwen, Maude Myers, Erma Plett, Margaret
Plett, Doris Roberts, and Reo Young.
We also had representatives of the Class participating in the major
activities of the Student Body. Girls' Glee Club, Boys' Glee Club, the Torch
Honor Society, and the Simcoe Staff.
The Class presented a play on December 19 that added a very wel-
come sum to our depleted treasury.
The Senior Ball, the last social event staged by the Senior Class be-
fore graduation, was very successful.
As we came in happy and very thrilled Freshmen-so we go out,
happy and very thrilled Seniors.
We leave to the Student Body a memorial in the gymnasium floor-
a memorial that the Senior Class has been proud to have one-third share
Thus, with a last gesture, we surrender our privilege of being Stu-
dents of Goldendale High School, and we sincerely regret that it is neces-
sary to leave our School, as we take another step onward in our careers.
L. J. D. '31
We, the class of 1931, in our usual good health and sound minds,
being at our height of perfection and in unusually good condition for
market, corn and wheat fed and guaranteed to bring top prices, de hereby
make this our last will and testament, in the presence of the chief execu-
tionerg hereby revoking all wills and testaments by us heretofore made.
Article the First
We, the Class of 1931, will and bequeath to remaining classes at
date of our departure from G. H. S., our proper and orderly conduct in
halls, classrooms and library. This item is practically as new as when left
to us, so you should appreciate it all the more.
To the Juniors we leave our secrets pertaining to class drives. Guard
them carefully, as have all other Senior classes.
To the Sophomores we will our numerous positions on the honor roll
and our superior intelligence with which we regretfully part.
To the Frosh we bequeath everything or nothing that is left, or what
they can wrench from the other classes.
Article the Second

'Tis a dull, drab life at best-that of an old maid--and we three,
Marjorie LeBlanc, Mary Nelson, and Ernestine Miller had not wandered
from the beaten path. We lived together on a large truck farm in the
sunny South, with nothing to do but spade up the ground every spring
and drop in the seeds. Marjorie had been driven almost insane by this life
of deadly sameness, and Mary and Ernestine had quite wasted away in
pining for ships that never came in.
Then one day Ernestine dashed up the steps frantically waving an
airplane circular. "Enter the Airplane Altitude Contest! No experience
required. Take three lessons from the Johnson-Brown School of Aero-
nautics and you are as fit a pilot or mechanic as any in the United
"That is indeed our chance," exclaimed Marjorie. "Here's where we
blaze the trail to fame and fortune." So Marjorie and Ernestine enrolled
in the school, while Mary furnished the funds, which she had collected
from time to time by the sale of an extra bunch of radishes or onions.
Mary, herself, was a little skeptical about the whole proposition, yet she
knew that she'd have to go with them on the flight for old maid's sake
if for nothing else.
The opening day of the Contest arrived, and we old maids went out
to our rented plane and prepared to make a glorious take-off. It cannot
1 9-SIMCOE-3 l
be denied that we were scared, yet we knew, that should we be the win-
ners there would be hundreds of men clamoring for our hands in marriage.
This may all sound giddy and school-girlish but had you been in our place
you would have realized that we were in truly desperate circumstances.
Marjorie being pilot, adjusted the controls, While Ernestine, the me-
chanic, wound up the propeller. When the engine popped and roared,
Ernie jumped in and we sailed off across the field in as pretty a manner
as you please. Up we soared into the blue, blue skies, until, overcome by
excitement, we began to feel young again. But when an old maid begins to
feel young, something is always likely to happen. Marjorie pulled too
hard on the gas lever and the plane rose upward faster than ever. The
clouds were left behind, the stars and planets rushed by.
"My word, my word, my word!" exclaimed Ernestine, "Something is
"So it seems," murmured Mary sarcastically, but in a very faint
voice. "Perhaps the lessons were a little too brief."
Upward, ever upward, we rushed. The moon came tearing at us, but
it was soon out of sight. We were headed straight for the sun. Neverthe-
less, we got by it with only a slightly singed wing.
"Alas and alack!" cried Marjorie. "I swear I see the pearly gates of
"Amen!" acquiesced Mary, as she devoutly closed her eyes.
Crash! The plane had bumped against one of the snowy columns that
upholds these famous gates, and we barely escaped from the machine
before the whole contraption went up in smoke.
"Who is there ?" demanded Saint Peter in a greatly perturbed voice,
for he was not used to being so rudely alarmed.
"Sinners, all," replied Mary, humbly bowing her head.
"Then, come in," said the good old Saint, appeased by this confession.
"Oh, look!" exclaimed Marjorie, as we stepped inside the gates. "We
can see down to the earth. There's China, there's Japan, and all the other
countries of the world! Would you believe it, that silly altitude contest is
still going on and I do believe I see Walter Hamilton trying to keep his
plane at the topmost rank."
"Oh, oh, oh,- and do look over here! It's quite near that small town
that we used to live in, you know,-Goldendale. There's a circus and all
kinds of animals. Mercy! it seems that one of the lions is loose but some-
one is going after him. It's a woman- There! They have him back in!
My! That woman is surely brave. Good Gracious! Can you believe it!
That woman is Maude Myers- training animals-well, that's the last
thing I expected her to do. And there's a little boy trying to crawl under
the tent flap. He's trying to see the Fat Lady. ..and...Wh.y!-She's
none other than Barbara Wendorf. My! She's the fattest woman I've ever
seen. How did she ever do it!" All this came from excited Ernestine
l 9-SIMCOE-3 1
but no one paid much attention to her for each was looking in a different
direction bewildered, by this interesting, yet amazing picture, that was
spread out beneath us.
Africa, South America, Egypt-how wonderful to see it all at a
glance. And still more wonderful was it to find one by one, in various be-
wildering lines and occupations our classmates.
Wilma Adams, our one time star dancer as well as our novelty tease,
we find as a cook in a commonplace restaurant, a greatly changed Wilma,
but a happy one. A little farther along this same street we find Charles
Spoon doing the same thing but perhaps losing in the race. He is just
about to call on Wilma and go into partner-ship with her as she has been
wanting him to do. We hope that together they may be able to make a
successful business. Ah, ah, what strange things the future holds for us.
Mary, who has always been more or less interested in schools and
the girls who attend them, calls our attention to Frances Robinson who
is presiding very efficiently as Dean of Women over the jazz-crazed gen-
eration. Her kind motherly smile is a great inspiration to each and every
one of them.
Saint Peter too helps to find them, readily points out to us Doris
Roberts, now one of his workers. Indeed, as we look at her, we remark
that she must even be said to outrival Aimee McPherson, of long ago, in
her powerful gospel speeches. She has retained her youthful beauty and
has developed a wonderful eloquence of speech. Throngs are held spell-
bound for hours.
Our eyes drifted back again to our old home town. It seems about the
same except that street cars are now maintained. The population has in-
creased and the postman who so eiiciently delivers the mail in his little
blue cap we discover to be none other than Marvin Kamholz, our old
schoolmate. His cheery smile greets each be-aproned housewife as he
goes from door to door. At one door Mary said he seemed to smile more
benignly than ever and we strain in our eyes to see more distinctly.
"Upon my word! It's Margaret McEwen!" exclaimed Ernestine.
"Yes," vouchsafed Saint Peter. "She is now Mrs. Arthur Perry, and
is very happy in her suburban home. The marriage was a surprise, but a
So interesting did this prove that we followed Marvin down the street
to see if we can find any more of our long-ago pals. At one impressive
mansion Marvin stooped to pat a tow-headed youngster with big blue
eyes, on the head. The child seemed to remind Marvin of someone.
"Who was that girl who used to sit behind me in English IV class?
I can't seem to remember exactly, but this face looks like hers," she said.
"It was Eleanor Amundson. . .And I'll bet she lives here now," Mary
said by way of answer.
Her bet was right and we beheld Eleanor grown very beautiful in her
stately queen-like manner. She ran her home on the budget plan and was
part-time business woman as well.
Leaving the town we now roam over the country-still a farming
district. In one field a tractor was industriously plowing up the sod driven
by a man of familiar build. He was a little stooped by work and care but
grim and determined.
"That is Paul Sanstrum-running his farm scientifically, I'll bet.
Wonder if he is running a race with that stranger or if they are just
experimenting," said Mary.
At about this time two sunbonneted figures could be seen coming
across the newly turned sod. In their hands they carried a basket. One
girl was tall, the other short. They waved a greeting to the man. From
beneath the drooping brims of the matronly bonnets we beheld the round
faces of Margaret Moore and Lois Spalding of Used-to-be-Land. They were
in partnership in poultry raising and were bringing their neighbor some
goodies. The neighbors expect Paul to marry one of them, but are un-
decided as to which it will be.
We leave them and glance briefly over the surrounding country.
Marjorie and Mary's old homes are still standing and the eyes of both
cloud with fond memories as they behold them.
"Let's look up my Alma Mater," said Marjorie, still reminiscent.
To humor her, we did, and were properly breath-taken at the spec-
tacle the University of Washington made Qespecially from the airl. In a
by-park of one of the grounds our attention was attracted by the peculiar
movements of a woman. Upon close inspection we could see that she held
a large net in one hand and jumped jerkily from one side to the other, at
intervals. Beneath the visor pulled low over her brow we made out plain-
ly the features of Florence Bratton. Her net and magnifying glass were
her treasures and she had gained world-wide fame by her collection of bugs
and miscellaneous other species.
"The University is still as beautiful as ever," sighed Marjorie, satis-
Let's watch this important looking woman going down the street
over here in New York," suggested Ernestine who was tired of staying in
such an insignificant place as Seattle.
This Woman was indeed "important looking." She walked as if she
had a definite purpose in mind. She was dressed nicely and seemed out of
place in the slum district of which she was located. Looking neither to the
right nor left she finally turned in at one of the most unkempt tenement
houses. She was known as Madame Karoffski to the poor beggars of the
tenement district. Everywhere she was welcome-everywhere she was a
generous giver. Something about her seemed familiar to us from our
elevated position. Saint Peter finally came to our rescue by telling us that
she would be known to us as Elizabeth Kayser. Her life was a secluded
one-her only occupation to help the poor. The brilliant belle of High
School Days had surprised us all.
"Let's go back to the circus, if we are looking for more of our school-
mates. I think that is an appropriate place to look for them," said Ernes-
Since we were anxious to find them all we turn again to the circus
lifeg and sure enough, we do find two more. Natalie Lawler charms
throngs with her graceful, thrilling feats of bareback riding while Clara
Lefever charms them into parting with their money to learn of their
As we follow the beautiful highways of the Northwest the familiar
sign "Slow, Men at Work" caught our eye. A piece of construction work
was going on. Among the laborers specializing in ditch-digging we again
find a familiar face. His red hair standing on end, his brawny arms ex-
posed to the sun, Brother Reo Young was not hard to recognize. Seeing
that he seemed satisfied, we did not stay there long.
We did not go far however for, at an attractive fruit stand where
tourists could not help but stop, we again delayed to note one of our former
companions. Miss Laura Coley was very deftly handing out watermelons,
cantelopes, tomatoes, and various other kinds of fruit. By this time we had
become used to surprises that we no longer voiced our opinion. However,
as we are about to glance onward we hear one tourist ask fas you know
tourists love to ask questionsl if Laura could tell them the road to the
home of Louise Dressel. We immediately are all attention and follow
eagerly the course of the car. At a modest little home it stopped. Louise,
still Miss Dressel, lived here in this small town of Pumpkin Center. She
and Virgie Wade together held full sway in all kinds of civic work, as well
as sponsoring the Ladies Aid Society, Woman's Association, and aiding as
enthusiastic workers in the W. C. T. U. Their little, round faces showed
interest and ambition, and we go on satisfied that they are happy.
"Do look," said Mary, "will girls never learn the danger of this cruel
World? There is one girl walking along the highway with all her earthly
belongings under her arm, I'll bet, thinking when she reaches th big city
she'll make her fortune. Oh! this inconceivable younger generation!"
Of course we look, and to our amazement, recognize in the berated
one, the smiling, happy-go-lucky countenance of Velma Elliott.
"Be not afraid for her," quoth Ernestine. "She'l1 take care of herself.
"Come, Come, let us not look all the time at the United States-let
us go to Europe," said Marjorie.
This we do with Mary giving a backward glance of concern at the
trudging figure of the hitch hiker. In England the crowds are agog at the
feats of the Plett Sisters. We could not miss this. Erma proved to have
become a second Einstein while Margaret was astonishing everyone with
her undefeated championship of the 1941 marathon.

Among the noted personages in England we found Rockefeller, Junior
and were astounded at the fact that he had conformed to the customs
of England by having a woman chauffeur. This would not have been so
peculiar had not this chauffeur proved to be Winnie Nordwell, of our old
Claude Woods we find at the head of a manufacturing firm in the
heart of Russia's idustrial center. The product which had brought him
success and money was the invention of a new clothes pin. Success to
Perhaps we are most astounded when we locate Florenz Wedgwood-
can you guess ?-a very charming dancer of great talent. Paris worships
at her feet, as well it may.
Only one other do we find in Paris-and we find her in a hospital.
Her charity and kindness toward her patients was admirable. We smiled
with recognition as we saw the face of Amanda Westermann under the
white of the nurse's cap. Above the door of entrance to the hospital was
a sign. It read "Home for Blind Mice, Excellent care."
Mary as usual must visit the colleges and here again we find someone
we know. Tom Wilson with his appropriate horn-rimmed glasses scowled
threateningly over his nose at a roomful of English students at Oxford.
We were glad to see him doing so nicely and journeyed on to a newspaper
oHice which Marjorie was interested in seeing. Here amongst the array
of disorder and confusion we find the second red-head in our class. Amidst
the hurry and flurry, Cora Watson was seen to write off reams of sob
story for the hungry public to eat up. As we left this building we sud-
denly came to the conclusion-that we had seen everyone of our class-
mates, and turning to Saint Peter we questioned him to be sure. But
Saint Peter was' nowhere to be seen-there was no Saint Peter-the pearly
gates of heaven were behind us. We were falling-falling-with empty
space below us.
"Help, Help!" shrieks the terrified Marjorie. 'Tm falling-falling-I
tell you I'm falling-g-gl"
"Open that parachute!" screams Mary as she passes her like a
streak of lightening.
The addled Marjorie then realizes that they have left their para-
chutes strapped to their backs. What a relief! Their only salvation! But
Ernestine, where is she? Did her parachute open or is she being dashed
to pieces upon some foreign shore? Her fear is shortlived, however, for
far to the eastward she spies Ernestine rocking and squirming under the
Hitting the ground with a thud several minutes later, the three old
maids are rendered unconscious, not by the fall but by the awful fright.
For indeed, you must remember that these old maids had been leading a
very common-place and uneventful life and such a sudden thrill comes

very near being too much for them.
A short while later in a nearby hospital, Marjorie, rousing herself
with a start, grasps the edge of her cot and cries, "Mary! Mary! Is that
you? Where are we? What?"
"Oh, that Johnson-Brown School of Aeronautics," sputters Mary, "It's
a fake! a frost! a fraud! I told you so, I didn't want to do it in the first
place! Oh dear me, dear me! Where's Ernestine, is shet?"
"Yes, I'm all here," calls Ernestine from her little white bed in the
"You're all here, huh, well, I wonder! I don't believe that any of us
were all there, to enter that silly altitude contest. You can take my word
for it, no more of that stuff for me!"
"Nor me!" chime in Marjorie and Ernestine simultaneously as they
sink back on their pillows to rest their aching heads.

There's a strange and towering forest,
Tall, majestic, does it stand,
Far away from all civilization
In a strange and distant land.
There the roebuck plays at midnight
Under the star-lit sky,
And the fire-fly in all glory
Flits slowly by. . .
In the eve the whip-poor-will whistles
And the lone wolf howls on the hill,
While the moon sails upward in the heavens
And sinks when the morning is still.
But they say that a strange enchantment
Lies over that forest now.
No man ever enters that forestg
No man knows exactly how.
And maybe that's the reason
Why I long to see it so.
But where, oh, where, shall I find it?
I know not the way to go.

I woke to look upon a face-
Silent, white and cold.
Oh! friendsg the agony I felt
Can never half be told.

That toiled so hard for me.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY
Three years ago, September 9, 1928, we, a bewildered group of forty-
eight Freshmen entered the gates of a strange institution which was to
us only an unfriendly name-"Goldendale High School." We were eager
children-awed and somewhat anxious but nevertheless, eager-eager
to become at home in that large brick building that frowned down at us
so convincingly stern.
We underwent the experience, which was somewhat unpleasant, of
being initiated, at a party given by the illustrious Seniors. However, after
this we felt a great deal more at home.
We elected as officers: Mary McEwen, president, Frederick Ander-
son, vice-presidentg Freda Watson, secretary-treasurer, Ruth Young,
Simcoe representativeg and Miss Porter, class adviser.
When school opened the following year, our number had diminished
to thirty-eight. Except for the Armistice Day program and the Sophomore
picnic, which we held at Northwestern Lake, that year was comparatively
uneventful. Our officers were: Jack Dressel, president, Florence Johnson,
vice-president, Maxine McAllister, secretary-treasurerg Paul McEwen,
Simcoe representative, and Miss Shelton, class adviser.
On September 10, 1930, we returned to school, Juniors at last, the
largest class in school. As officers we elected the following: Gordon Bath,
president: Robert Jacroux, vice-president, Florence Johnson, secretary-
treasurerg Marguerite Spalding, Simcoe representativeg and Miss Shelton,
class adviser. During this year we made an exceedingly good showing.
We were well represented on all the athletic teams-two boys and two
girls on the basketball teams, and ten boys on the football team. Our
Prom and our play were both clever and well-attended.

On an early September day in 1929, forty-six humble Freshmen slip-
ped into high school trying not to be noticed by the haughty Seniors. The
attempt did not seem to have any effect, however, for we were given a
very interesting initiation. The Freshmen later entertained the Seniors
at a Hal1owe'en party.
With Miss Bleakney as class adviser, we elected for the year: Max-
ine Welter, presidentg Kirk McKee, vice-presidentg Loren Hamilton,
secretary-treasurerg Freda Watson, Simcoe representative.
The May Day program was given by the Freshmen with great suc-
cess. One of the features was a dance by Vernita Bowman.
Our class picnic was held at McEwen's ranch north of Goldendale.
Although th.e rain came down for a while, it did not dampen our spirits.
Our class entered into the spirit of the school and was well repres-
ented in both the Glee Clubs and athletics.
At the beginning of the 1930-1931 school year, with Miss Bleakney
again as class adviser, we elected the following officers: Howard Spald-
inng, presidentg Kirk McKee, vice-presidentg Inez Robertson, secretary-
treasurerg Maxine Welter, Simcoe representative.
The Armistice day program was in charge of the Sophomores, who
again made the program a success. Howard Spalding, our president, in-
troduced Rev. Young the guest speaker, and Inez Robertson, who read a
paper on the history of the state of Washington.
This year we have four members in the Girls Glee Club. Seven of
the Torch Honor members are Sophomores,

FRESHMAN CLASS HISTORY
We started our career in G. H. S. in 1930-31.
We selected class officers, and after a few alternatives and reelec-
tions, we now present the following officers: President, Beatrice Over-
lyg Vice-President, Lloyd McDonaldg Secretary-Treasurer, Lenore Ding-
mang Simcoe Representative, Jean Johnsong Class Representative to Stu-
dent Body, Beatrice Young and Jack Coffieldg Class Adviser, Mrs. Warren.
Of course, the Seniors gave us the customary "Welcome Party" that
most of us call "Frosh Initiation."
To show that we had the school spirit, we entertained the Student
Body at an "Execution," serving a delightful luncheon at the close of the
evening. Both the Faculty and the Student Body assured us that they
enjoyed our return Mixer.
The Freshmen are entering actively into school life. We contributed
three players to Coach Van Woert's football team: Robert Hoctor, Edward
Modes, and Henry Culver. Henry also was a member of the basketball

TORCH HONOR SOCIETY
The Torch Honor Society organized this year with a membership of
nineteen. The following officers were elected: President, Margaret Mc-
Eweng Vice-president, Louise Dresselg Secretary-treasurer, Reo Young.
At the first meeting, the group discussed ways in which it could be of
service to the school at large. It was finally decided that a service award
for leading students in school activities be established. This award would
be in the form of a plaque upon which would be inscribed from year to
year the names of the winning boy and girl. This proposition is to be
sponsored by the Torch Society with the final authority of naming win-
ners left to the faculty.
The year's activities of the Society closed with the annual Banquet.

Robert Hoctor, Arthur Perry, Henry Culver, Paul McEwen, Thomas
Esteb, George Nickerson.
The seven lettermen of the high school met towards the latter part
of the semester and elected their officers for the year. They later had a
meeting which included the initiates and adopted a schedule which was
carried out during the year.
There are sixteen active lettermen in the organization this year, only
two of which will graduate, although there are six that will not be eligible
for athletics next year. Reo Young, one of the graduating members, will
receive his gold "G", having earned the required number of letters dur-
ing his high school career.
The Purple "G" banquet was held during the Christmas vacation.
There was lots to eat-thanks to the M. E. Ladies Aid. There was a pro-
gram following during the evening in which were numerous musical num-
bers and speeches. One of our alumni, Mr. Zola Brooks, acted as toast-
The dance was held the same evening as the banquet. Music was
furnished by a local orchestra. Every one enjoyed himself and went home
GOLD "G" CLUB
The Gold "G" Club, which was suspended two years ago because of
the character of the initiation performed, was reorganized this year with
the consent of the School Board.
Since there was no Club last year, there were only three actual mem-
bers-Margaret McEwen, Lois Spalding, and Louise Dressel, although
Velma Elliott and Maxine McAllister had earned letters last year and
thereby fulfilled requirements for membership. At the end of the basket-
ball season this year five more girls were eligible for membership: Wilma
Adams, Florence Bratton, Natalie Lawler, Mary McEwen, and Margaret
At a meeting of the above ten girls, Louise Dressel was elected presi-
dent, Margaret McEwen, vice-presidentg and Lois Spalding, secretary-
The three officers being the only regular members planned, with the
aid of Miss Shelton, an initiation for the seven remaining girls.
This initiation was given, in the form of a party, on Thursday, Feb-
ruary 26, at the high school. It was a very delightful affair of the year.
Only two of the ten members will be in school next year, but we feel
sure that the Gold "GH Club will henceforth be a permanent organization
in G. H. S.

The Boys' Glee Club was organized in 1911. It's purpose was to create
a greater appreciation and a greater understanding of the fundamentals
Although there were only thirteen members of the Boys' Glee Club
this year, with the combined efforts of the Girls' and Boys' Glee Clubs,
and the very arduous work on the part of our music instructor, Mrs. War-
ren, we put on a very successful program, on March fifth, consisting of two
one act plays, and several numbers by both Girls' and Boys, Glee Clubs.

The first meeting of the Harmony Club was held on September 16,
1930. As is the usual custom, we elected oficers. The following officers
were elected: President, Margaret McEWeng Vice-president, Natalie Law-
ler, Secretary-treasurer, Maxine McAllister.
We decided to have dresses of uniform style of pastel colors, each girl
choosing her favorite color. The Harmony Club was selected as the new
name of the organization, this is the first year that the Glee Club has
had a special name. .
We all have worked hard in making our All-High Program a success.
The Harmony Club sang in a number of programs this year includ-
ing a Woman's Association program and sch.ool entertainments.
Under the efficient direction of Mrs. Warren our Harmony Club has
become an organization of which we are all proud to be members.

Shortly after school started the Freshmen were properly initiated and
installed into G. H. S. at a party given in their honor by the Seniors.
The Frosh wisely complied with the Seniors' request that the boys
wear knee breaches, short socks, and a band of tl ue Freshman green about
their right armg the girls donned dresses of their grandmothers day.
Some oratorical and dramatic talent was discovered in the course of
the impromptu entertainment which the Frosh were obliged to present.
Delicious iefreshments were served in the domestic science rooms and
everyone went home feeling happy and well-acquainted.
A few weeks later the Freshmen returned the compliment by giving
a very successful party for the Seniors. A short program was given, re-
freshments were served in the domestic science rooms, and the evening
was finished pleasantly in dancing.
As in the past the Seniors entertained the student body on December
twenty-third with a Christmas Party. After listening to an interesting
program we were treated to a visit by Santa Claus himself. This dis-
tinguished personage read many letters written to him by students and
some by the faculty. Before he left we were each given a present from
beneath the Christmas tree, and some candy and nuts.
The Juniors presented a very original Valentine program in the form
of a broadcast from radio station LOVE. There were, too, the customary
valentines and candy hearts.
May Day was celebrated by a spring time program given by the
On Armistice Day the Sophomores gave a program of musical num-
bers and readings appropriate to the day.
PURPLE "G" BANQUET
The annual Purple "G" banquet and dance were held on Tuesday eve-
ning, December twenty-ninth.
The banquet was served for Purple "G" Club members and their
ladies at the Methodist Church. Z. O. Brooks, as toast master, called up-
on Edward Allison, in the absence of Frank Lainhart, president of the
Club, to give a welcome to the new members. The response was made by
Bill Chapman. Interesting talks were given by Bob Jacroux and Reo
Young, Ray Olsen and Ruth Norris sang, Maxine McAllister played a
piano solog and John R. McEwen gave an address, "Athletics and School
After dinner the participants went on to the High School for the
dance, to which the rest of the G. H. S. student body and many other
guests were invited. The auditorium was simply but very distinctively
decorated in purple and gold.
A Spanish garden was artistically created by the class of 1933 on April
seventeenth, when they gave the annual Prom in honor of the graduating
Lattice work erected around the hall and hung with various colored
wisteria added to the beauty of the scene. The lights and windows were
draped with long streamers of crepe paper in pastel shades. Along the
balconies were draped Spanish. scarves-lavender, gold, and black being
the predominating colors. The Simcolians, who furnished the music for
the evening were dressed as Spanish troubadours. Two Spanish maidens
served punch from a beautifully appointed booth, on each side of which
were small tables at which onlookers might sit. Davenports and floor
lamps added to the effectiveness of the hall.
During the intermission a clever program was given. Edward Bacher
and Marjorie Moore gave a song and dance skit: Margaret McEwen gave
a Spanish Gypsy dance, the Junior Trio, Ruth Mort, Ruth Young, and Mary
McEwen, sang two Spanish songs. A popular song written by Alice Collins
was presented for the first time.
This second formal event of the school year proved to be a very suc-
cessful one financially as well as socially.
On the afternoon of May eighth the girls of G. H. S. entertained the
mothers of our community at their annual Mother's Tea. The auditorium
was beautiful with lovely flowers and well-filled with ladies.
The delightful program consisted of several selections by the girls
Glee Club, some numbers by the sextette, a vocal solo, a piano solo, and
some appropriate readings.
After being served with tea and dainty sandwiches the ladies were in-
troduced to one another and were encouraged to spend the rest of the
afternoon in pleasant chatting. '
GOLD "G" CLUB
February twenty-sixth was the date of one of the most attractive
social events of the season, when the members of the Gold "G" Club,
girls' athletic association, entertained the newly elected members.
After a clever initiatory program, the club members, their friends, and
faculty members were entertained with dancing and games. Refresh-
ments were served at the close of the evening in the Domestic Science
rooms. The rooms were cleverly decorated with huge purple and gold
rosettes and streamers. The lights were dimmed by purple shades. Lunch
was served at small tables, which were decorated to carry out the color
scheme, with golden "G's" and slender purple tapers.
In May, the Seniors presented, very successfully, their annual ball.
The auditorium was transformed in the dazzling white of the North. Pole.
Sparkling snow and crystal icicles clung to walls and windows and swayed
gracefully from the light fixtures.
The many dancers were refreshed with delicious punch served by dark-
skinned Eskimo maids and entertained by clever intermission numbers
offered by some of the tiny-tot performers of our school.
The orchestra, appropriately clad in costumes of the north, made
music which was greatly appreciated by all attending.

Writing poems and making rhymes
Should be classified as crimes-
Spoiling paper, wasting ink
Using good brains just to think
Silly words without a meaning
Through my dizzy head careening
Tantalizing bits of rhyme
Just elude me all the time
Thoughts confused, and visions hazy,
Friends come in and think I'm crazy.
Turning urge, and black despair
Alternately I must bear.
Get to feeling worse and worse
Till I really make a verse
Then from nerves I find release
As I view my masterpiece.

SENIOR CLASS PLAY
"Crooks For A Month" given by the Seniors under the able direction
of Miss Bleakney proved to be a very humorous hit. There was a modern
love story mixed in with the financial struggles of a far-sighted real es-
tate salesman. The attempts of his two children, Doris and Winifred, to
help him out of his difficulties led to a mystifying impersonation of an
Indian horoscope reader by the hero of the story, Jack York, and many
amusing incidents such as the sale of "Creme of The Orient Soap." The
cast was as follows.

the direction of Miss Bleakney was most entertaining and successful. The
theme was concerned with the complicated love tangle between Sylvia
Relyea, Phil Stanton and General Burbeck. Originality and humor were
introduced by the confusion wrought by Professor Relyea's apparently
successful attempt to return an old man to his babyhood. The cast in-

"Happiness for Six" was presented by the High School Faculty on
November 25 for the benefit of the Student Body.
The six characters played their parts very well, keeping the interest
of the audience until the final curtain.
Mr. Van Woert and Miss Bleakney as Jimmy Talbot and Mrs. Jimmy
Talbot, respectively, were truly realistic in their interpretation of the char-
acter of a young married couple. Miss shelton as Mignon Wilding, nick-
named "Mig," portrayed the slangy, modern young woman who almost
turns out to be a home wrecker-all done unintentionally of course. Ortis
Olsen as Harry Purvis, a young reporter, very independent of action, was
not at all amendable to the match-making proclivities of Mrs. Talbot. Mrs.
Warren as Mrs. Elizabeth Burton, Helen Talbot's mother, and Mr. Bacher
as Montrose Carrington, an artist, played the heavier character parts.
The faculty is to be commended for their wholehearted support of the
students, especially in the matter of producing their play which required
a great deal of their time and also a lot of work.
Miss Bleakney coached the play and was ably assisted by the cast,
the members of which exerted themselves to make each individual part a
, ALL HIGH FUNCTION
The second program given for the benefit of the school was the All-
Hi variety program presented by the combined talent of the Boys' and
Girls's Glee Clubs.
The opening part of the evening's entertainment consisted of musical
specialties both Vocal and instrumental. Trained choruses and soloists
sang and interpreted modern song hits. Interspersed throughout these
numbers were humorous reading bringing forth much hearty laughter from
Then there were two comic one-act plays to furnish more amusement
for the pleasure seekers. The first of these to be presented was a farce
entitled "You Can't Stop Cupid."
Next, a girls' Sextet sang three delightful interlude numbers which
certainly gave the patrons a delightful treat in harmony.
The second playette brought on a new volley of laughs with its mirth-
provoking activity. "Hist! She's A Man" was the name.
Credit for the success of this entertainment is due mainly to Mrs.
Warren, Glee Club Instructor, who willingly assumed the burden of coach-
ing the two plays and directing all the musical numbers. G. H. S. is surely
grateful to her for her efforts.

Ross Van Woert possesses the confidence, and ability to make appar-
ently veteran teams out of inexperienced players. Both football and basket-
ball outlook was a gloomy one for G. H. S. But Mr. Van Woert, through
much hard Work, careful coaching, untiring supervision, was able to create
teams well worthy to represent their school. The school and the com-
munity realize and appreciate the fine things that Coach Van Woert has
accomplished. G. H. S. is indeed fortunate to have a leader and a sports-
man of his calibre on its teaching staff.
Cleo Shelton is the girls' athletic director. Her plucky courage, her
patience, her sound judgment, and her basic knowledge of the game have
made her invaluable to G. H. S. as the girls' basketball coach. Champion-
ship teams do not happen. They are created by many hours of exacting
practice under the patient, thorough tutelage of a capable coach. It is to
Miss Shelton that the success of our girls' basketball team is to be attri-
buted. May we show her our appreciation of her efforts and of her suc-
Maxine has been the leader in maintaining the spirit of the school
throughout the year. The Pep Leader cannot sustain enthusiasm alone,
she must have the cooperation of her school. Maxine, with her own enthu-
siasm and true-blue loyalty, has won that support, and has made the school
spirit a vital quality in G. H. S.
Robert Jacroux and Maxine McAllister bear the responsibility of the
management and inspiration of the student body.
Robert has held his position as Business Manager of the Student Body
in an exceptionally efficient manner. He has accepted his responsibilities
and transacted them promptly and effectively. Robert is to be congratulated
for his administration of the duties of his office.
FRANK LAINHART-Captain-Fullback-Three year letter-man.
"Frankie" was always in there fighting and inspiring the team to struggle
just a little harder. On defense Frank bucked-up the line, stopping every
play that came his Way. On offense he worked just as effectively, gaining
ground on his line plunges or moving out interference for some other
backfield man. Frank also handled the punting. This is his last year of
service and G. H. S. will surely miss him.
ARTHUR PERRY-Guard and Tackle-Two year letter-man. Arthur
played good football and seemed to take great delight in cutting down
opposing linemen who got in his way. He was especially effective in plug-
ging up plays through center and guard. On defense he was valuable as
an interference runner. This was Arthur's last year.
ROBERT HOCTOR-End-One year letter-man. "Bob" made his
share of the tackles. He was adept at disorganizing the interference of his
opponents thus making it possible for the secondary to rob the runner.
"Bob" also played center as occasion demanded. He will be back for more
THOMAS ESTEB-Tackle-One year letter-man. "Tommy" had his
first taste of football this year. He was a particularly good defensive line-
man, excelling as a Wrecker of his opponent's forward wall. He was
especially adept at evading would-be blockers and squirming through the
line to bring down the runner for a loss. "Tommy" played his last game
for G. H. S. this season.
MITCHELL HENSLEE-Half-back-Two year letter-man. "Mike"
was a classy back fielder with plenty of speed. He was an expert ground-
gainer on long end runs and off-tackle cut-backs. As he still has two more
years of service, we ought to see a lot of "Mike" in future football clashes.
1 9-SIMCOE-3 1
HENRY DAVENPORT-Half-back-One year letter-man. "Speed
and more speed," was Henry's motto. Once he was started, there was no
stopping him. He demonstrated his speed at White Salmon when he ran
seventy yards to a touchdown on a plain line play. Henry specialized in
long end runs and cut-back plays. Henry played his last high school game
REO YOUNG-Center and End-Two year letter-man. Reo was an
excellent scrimmager behind the line of attack. He frequently dropped
back to make passes-they were swift and well placed. Reo played his
farewell game this season.
HENRY CULVER-End-One year letter-man. "Butch" proved him-
self a sure tackler and expert pass receiver. He exhibited real class as a
defensive end. Opponents seldom got far around his end of the line, for,
if he couldn't stop the ball carrier, he would down the interference.
"Butch" will be back again next season.
ROBERT JACROUX-Quarterback-Two year letter-man. Moved
from guard position to quarter, "Bob" took over the signal calling duties.
He proved to be a very able field general and kept the team alert all the
time. He could be depended upon to make his share of the yardage as he
was on the sending end of most of our passes. "Bob" also did some excel-
lent tackling and blocking. He has been elected Captain for next year. He
has one more year to play.
JACK DRESSEL-Half-back-One year letter-man. "Dressel" has
speed with plenty of drive. That is a good combination. He should see lots
of action next year. He was out of practice with a twisted spine so he
missed several games. Look for him next year. He'll be there.
PAUL MCEWEN-End and Tackle-One year letter-man. "Curly"
was a good offensive end always ready to scamper down under punts and
grab the opposing safety or to receive a short pass down center. He was
equally prepared to stop the plays his adversaries directed toward his side
of the line. Paul will be listed among the non-combatants YIQXU year as he
has served his quota of time in athletics.
FREDERICK ANDERSON-Half-back and Tackle-Two year letter-
man. "Andy" is a valuable interference man at flanking half position. He
put them out of the Way on nearly every play to make Way for the ball-
toter. He also worked well on the reverse plays. As a defensive back, he
helped hold up the line. He still has another year to fight for G. H. S.
EDWARD MODES-Guard-One year letter-man. A hundred and
twenty-five pounds of nerve and grit. "Ed," though small, was right there
in the middle of the line ready to stop anything coming his Way. He
possessed the knack of diving under the line and grabbing the fellow
with the ball. This good tackler and blocker will be back for three more
sessions of football.
GEORGE NICKERSON-Center and Guard-One year letter-man.
George was a valuable man at either center or guard. His passes were
accurate and his defensive work good. He will be back next year to help
G. H. S. bring in more victories.
WILLIAM CHAPMAN-Guard-One year letter-man. Although this
was "Bill's" first experience in football he certainly made the veterans
take notice when he demonstrated his driving and charging ability. "Bill"
was especially fond of breaking through the opponents forward or to
trip up the ball carrier before he got started. Unfortunately this is
"Bill's" last season to play for G. H. S.
FLEMING BYARS-Tackle-One year letter-man. The other side
of the line usually gave way when Fleming hit it. He was good at paving
the way for off-tackle drives and center plunges. Fleming twisted his
knee and was out of the game the last part of the season. He will be back
next for more service.
Football practice at G. H. S. began the first week of school when
thirty eager "pig-skin" aspirants answered the call of Coach Van Woert.
With seven lettermen from last year's squad as a nucleus, a couple of
good lineups were soon whipped into shape. Although inexperienced, the
boys were ready to work and willing to learn. The purple and gold war-
riors were prepared to attack the alumni after several days strenuous
preliminaries. The Grads had lots of power and gave them plenty of prac-
tice during the entire season. The Coach believed in hard work for accom-
plishing results and on many occasions he had the boys drilling till dark.
The first official game was with Prosser. The boys from the North
came down to help initiate the new football field. The Contest with the
"Prosserites" was hard fought from beginning to end with. neither team
having a decided edge. Through the uncanny broken-field running of the
safety in the visitors' team our opponents were able to gain consistently
on punt returns. Goldendale's glaring weakness was poor flank defense
which permitted the Prosser players to score twice on wide end runs. The
first tally of the game read Prosser-12g G. H. S.-0.
With a more smoothly-working offense and a more effective defense
the Goldendale players traveled to Dufur on the following Friday. The boys
put up a good scrap and showed plenty of "punch" in mid-field yet all
scoring attempts failed. The Oregonians fortified their goal like a regi-
ment of "Stone-wall Jacksons." Dufur succeeded in completing a couple
of forward passes from spinner plays for touchdowns. They also con-
verted one of the extra points after a touchdown. At the close of the day's
hostilities the old sign board said Dufur-135 G. H. S.-0.
The following Friday the boys must have been saving all their pep
and vim for this exhilarating tussle, for they snapped into it and put up
a great fight. The old G. H. S. spirit that is characteristic of all its games
with White Salmon was at high tension. After a scoreless first half, the
l 9-SIMCOE-C3 1
Crimson players came back with a menacing arial attack that momen-
tarily threw the local squad off guard. A series of neatly-completed passes
resulted in a touchdown for the opponents but the local line succeeded in
blocking the try for point. The score was then 6-0 for White Salmon.
Goldendale received the next kick-off and proceeded to launch a mighty
70 yard drive to the White Salmon goal line. After five minutes of plung-
ing it finally registered a touchdown. The next minute the ball was car-
ried over for the extra tally which won the game. Score: G. H. S.-75
Enthusiastic over their White Salmon victory the local team con-
tested with Hood River. After four hectic quarters of long runs and com-
pleted passes, the blue-and-white clad boys had won the game 26-0. That
same night however we traveled on to Portland to see the Oregon-Wash-
ington football game.
As a mark of gratitude for the enjoyable trip accorded them the G.
H. S. football boys decided to give the crowd a real treatg so the next
Friday on the local field Moro received a two touchdown defeat. The team
showed a vast improvement in offensive play and on several occasions
the passing attack contributed long gains. A completed pass scored our
first counter and a series of line drives netted the second. Both point
tries were blocked, so the score read G. H. S.-12g Moro-0.
The next game was with Camas. The guest team had its off-tackle
drive and as a result soon scored. The purple and gold team held the boys
in check for the remainder of the first two cantos. In the second half the
invaders made two more counters to sew up the game. The last score was
made possible through a misdirected pass which was intercepted by Camas.
Twice the visitors converted for extra points. The final score was, Camas
-205 G. H. S.-0.
The Goldendale team next traveled to Wasco, determined to even up
old scores with the Sherman County school. A good representation of
rooters accompanied the team. This was one of the best games of the
season from the standpoint of yardage gained on punts and plays. Bad
luck in the handling of passes prevented several scoring attempts of G.
H. S. but Goldendale succeeded in winning a thrilling 7-6 victory.
On Armistice day the return game with White Salmon was played.
Practically the whole student body and half the town people motored down
the canyon to witness this frayg White Salmon and adjacent precincts
were out 100W strong to back their team. Thus, the background was
set for a royal battle. The fans saw plenty of football that afternoon as
both teams fought like Trojans to squeeze out a victory. No score was
made in the first half. The ball was sent up and down the field with in-
termittent thrusts at the goals but without a score. Late in third quar-
ter one of our backfielders broke loose on a straight line play. Passing
the line of scrimmage through a hole made by perfect interference, he
skirted around the secondary defense and dashed for sventy-seven yards
over the Crimson goal-line for the only touchdown of the game. The try
for point failed. We were ahead 6-0. The White Salmon squad resorted
to the air in a last desperate attempt to score but their efforts were frus-
trated and G. H. S. triumphed, 6-0.
In a post-season game the Goldendale boys were defeated 56-0 by
The following players have served their allotted eight semesters in
athletics and will be missing from the G H. S. lineup next year: Hank
Davenport, Frank Lainhart, Reo Young, Arthur Perry, Bill Chapman,
Paul McEwen, and Tommy Esteb. G. H. S. has a fine squad of players
left and promises to have a good strong team next fall.

Having put away the moleskins after a hard football season, Coach
Van Woert issued the summons for basketball players. Over thirty boys
answered the call and received equipment for the inter-class skirmishes.
After a two weeks' practice the squad was cut to fifteen and the hard
grind began. Only two Iettermen were left so Coach had to work from the
Our first game was with Wasco. The Sherman county team broke
fast and shot accurately. In spite of the fact that they almost succeeded
in hoo-dooing us, we did manage, finally, to make two points. The score
was 32-2 in Wasco's favor.
With another hard week's practice behind them, G. H. S. traveled to
Odell. The contest was very interesting throughout and the team display-
ed a much more polished offensive. We had considerable trouble in locat-
ing the basket the first half, and as the whistle blew, Odell was out in
front 12-2. However, in the second period, G. H. S. outscored the Ore-
gonians 8-7. The final counter read Odell 19, G. H. S. 10.
The first game after Christmas vacation was in Hood River. Lack of
practice was plainly evident in the way the boys missed "cripple" shots.
They attempted countless shots but hooked only an occasional tally. The
result of the game was Hood River 33, Goldendale 10.
The next Friday Hood River came up to play in Goldendale. The
Purple and Gold had gone through a week's hard practice since the last
tilt and they felt confident that they could win the game. For three quar-
ters the visitors lead by a small margin. In the last period the Goldendale
boys rallied to win the game. Score: Goldendale 24, Hoodn River 21.
The following week the Centerville quintet journeyed to G. H. S. A
close, fast contest resulted, with Goldendale spurting in the last few
minutes to a four point lead. The local team, however, sewed up the game
with a score of 19 to Centerville's 15.
The Columbians from White Salmon came up to get a victory of 23
to Goldendale's 8. The second teams also played, our scrubs taking the
game from White Salmon with a 9-7 score.
On February 6 the G. H. S. team met a defeat at the hands of the
Centerville boys. Centerville looped 32 points to Goldendale's 9. It was the
first time in many years that the local team has lost to its neighbor.
In a slow moving game with Moro we succeeded in annexing a close
victory. The contest was loosely played throughout, with more pasess in-
tercepted than completed. Too many cinchshots were missed. The final
whistle left the boards showing a 19-7 victory for G. H. S.
A caravan of cars headed by Patrolman Williams escorted the team
to White Salmon for the deciding game in the county championship.
Page Sixty-Five ,
Goldendale put up a good battle but the experience and class of the Crim-
son quintet were too much for them and they lost, 34-19. In the last
quarter they were within two baskets of tying them but White Salmon
soon forged ahead.
The following night G. H. S. traveled to Wasco to defeat the Oregon
lads 25-23 in the most exciting game of the year. In this was the boys
atoned for their earlier defeat from Wasco.
The last tussle of the season was played at Stevenson. The local
boys were defeated 30-21.
Two members of the present squad will not be in the future G. H.
S. games. They are Tommy Esteb, and Reo Young. Bob Jacroux served
as captain in most of the games and will be back next year with his
team-mates to help make more basketball history for the Purple and Gold.
BOYS' BASKETBALL PERSONNEL
REO YOUNG-Center and forward-Two year letterman. Reo was
second high-point man for this season. Speed and dependability made him
one of the best offensive players on this year's team. He will be missed
next season as this was his last year to play on the G. H. S. quintet.
ROBERT JACROUX-Captain-Guard and forward-Two year let-
terman. A good, dependable, defensive man and a fast breaking offensive
player. Bob was in the game every minute pepping up the team. An elu-
sive dribbler and accurate passer-Bob will be back next year to run up
the points for G. H. S.
MITCHELL HENSLEE-Guard-One year letterman. A bear on de-
fense, "Mike" was always ready to break up the passing attack of his op-
ponents. He Was just as eager to snap the ball down on defense and
start his team off to a score. "Mike" still has two more seasons to pass
the old basketball around for G. H. S.
TOM ESTEB-Center-One year letterman. With plenty of reach
"Esteb" was able to get the tip-off a good share of the time for his team.
Tom was a good passer and point-maker. He specialized in short shots
from the side. Tom has played his last game for G. H. S.
WOODROW WATSON-Forward-One year letterman. Lots of pep
and speed with a wicked eye for long shots. "Woody" never quit scrap-
ping. He made shots from almost any position on the court. "Woody" will
be back next year to fight for G. H. S. Watch for him. He'll be there with
more pep than ever.
DONALD BREWER-Guard-One year letterman. Don was always
in the old game breaking up opponents' scoring threats or boosting up the
Purple and Gold total. Don had plenty of reach which made it possible
for him to give G. H. S. the tip-off on jump balls. Don will wear the
purple uniform again next year.
HENRY CULVER-Forward-One year letterman. Through his
speed and agility, "Butch" was able to keep the ball in play whenever it
came near him. He was an accurate shot from the foul line and could also
be depended to bring in the tallies from scrimmage. "Butch" will be back
for two more seasons.

MARGARET MOORE fMikeD, Guard and Running Center. Margaret
was a fast hard-fighting player, whose presence in a game always en-
couraged the others to renewed efforts. This was her first and last year
on the team.
Our first game was played at Trout Lake on October 17. This was a
fast game, and although we fought our very hardest, the final whistle
found us on the small end of a 22-31 score.
The first "home" game of the season was played on the Centerville
floor against Lyle, October 24. We easily took Lyle into camp to the tune
On October 31, we played Bickleton, who had won from Trout Lake
once and lost to her once. The game was played at Centerville. We won,
55-29. This was indeed a "moral victory" for the G. H. S. girls!
Our next game was at Lyle on November 10. The score of 40-14 in
our favor shows more plainly than mere words how easily we were vic-
On November 17, we met for the second time the only team that had
managed to defeat us-Trout Lake. This game, played at Centerville, was
very fast and interesting. Incidentally, we won-40 to 24.
The only game which we played on the G. H. S. floor was played
December 13 against Wasco. This was a comparatively good game, which
we won, 32-14.
The last, and by far the best, game of the season, was played at
Wasco, January 3, during the Christmas vacation. All who witnessed it,
described it as "the fastest, most interesting game of girls' basketball
they had ever seen." Unfortunately for us, the final whistle blew when
Wasco held a two-point lead. The score of this game was 24-26.
N. L. S. '31
G. H. S. experienced a very successful track season this year. Partici-
pating in three different meets, the purple and gold tracksters brought in
many points for the school. Practice began early in the spring and a squad
of about a dozen men turned out faithfully. The first meet of the year
came on May the first. VVhite Salmon was host of the county meet and
managed to win over G. H. S. by a small margin. The local team brought
in five firsts and several seconds and thirds to score fifty-six points. The
following Wednesday the Goldendale boys motored to Hood River 'to take
part in the Mid-Columbia try-outs. The results of this meet were very
gratifying as G. H. S. came in a close second to Hood River-thirty-two
points to thirty points. White Salmon was third with twenty-one points
and three other schools divided the remaining tallies. At this meet G. H.
S. registered three flrsts and several seconds. The final meet for the year
was held at Longview on May the ninth. Six of the boys accompanied by
Coach Van Woert and Mr. Bacher made the trip to the Southwest Wash-
The girls' track was not as successful as the boys', but they hope to
carry off honors next year.
A party of seven including Coach Van Woert and Mr. Bacher took in
the Southwest Washington track meet at Longview. G. H. S. succeeded in
gaining three places. A tie for first in the 440 won by Jack Dresselg a tie
for second in the pole vault by Bob Jacrouxg and a fourth in the 880 by
Henry Culver. Jack and Bob also entered the Western Washington meet
FUN FOR ALL
It was five-thirty and the party was to be at eight.
"Dot, are you ready to eat?"
"Yes, as soon as I find my purple and gold pajamas. Where are
they ?" replied Dot.
"I haven't seen them for a week. Maybe somebody liked the color
better than you did," said Joy.
Presently Dot emerged wearing the long-looked-for pajamas. Joy had
just finished setting the table. The two girls lived in an apartment house
just off the campus. This building of twelve apartments belonged to a
society and could accommodate twenty-four girls. Joy and Dot were both
popular and pretty. Joy was president and Dot was secretary of the
society. A living room, dining room, bed room, kitchenette and bath com-
prised the apartment. A very kind, middle-aged woman lived in an espe-
cially arranged apartment downstairs and acted as house mother. There
was a large hall or assembly room downstairs used for parties and meet-
ings. The twelve apartments occupied by the girls were on the next three
"You wash the dishes, Dot, while I bathe and finish plans for the
party. There is such a lot to do yet. Someone has to get the apples and I
know the girls haven't finished decorating. I can hear them down there
'But hurry, because I want you to help me with my costume."
Joy left the dining room and Dot picked up the dishes and went to the
kitchen. The dishes were washed and Dot was drying them when sudden-
ly she heard something outside the window. She looked out but could see
nothing. She continued to wipe dishes. Was that the same noise- Dot
listened. Yes, it was. She turned away from the windows and went to
"Joy, I heard something out side, while I was in the kitchen."
"I thought you had grown up. What did it sound like ?"
"I don't know. I looked but I couldn't see anything. Won't you come ?"
"Me come? Not this way. Go on back and I will come as soon as I
Dorothy went back to the kitchen to finish the dishes. It was after
six and there was so much yet to be done! This party was going to be fun.
Dorothy was deep in her thoughts when Joy came running in minus
shoes and dress.
"I heard something! I heard something! Dot, what is it?"
"Well I never! Now who hasn't grown up? I didn't hear anything.
Where were you ?"

"I was just ready to try on my costume. I walked toward the window
and then I heard the funniest noise. What had we better do, Dot?"
"I don't know," said Dot. "Shall we call some of the other girls ?"
"No," replied Joy. "They would only call us fraidy-cats. I'll tell you
what. Leave the rest of the dishes and come get into something besides
those purple and gold pajamas. I have an idea."
Dot and Joy left the kitchen and returned to the bed room. They
both slipped into dresses.
"We are going to leave here for awhile. You come with me down-
stairs and help the girls while I go for the apples," said Joy.
"Aren't you afraid to go alone ?" asked Dot.
"No," replied Joy. "It will only take me a minute."
S0 downstairs they went. They looked into the room where the girls
were supposed to be, but it was empty.
"Now where could those girls be? There is lots to do here yet," said
Joy. "Well, Dot, old dear, you better call Mrs. Robbins and have her come
in. I have to get those apples."
With that she left the house.
The night was clear and cold, with a beautiful moon. In front of the
walk was a roadster. Joy climbed in and drove away. It was three miles
to where the apples were, but what was three miles on a night like this.
When Dorothy heard the car start she walked across to Mrs. Robins'
"Now I wonder where she could be," said Dorothy to herself. "I won-
der if one of the girls will come help. I can't imagine where the committee
Dorothy went to the foot of the stairs and called.
"Well where has she gone ?"
"Well this is funny. I guess the only thing for me to do is to go back
to the hall and wait for Joy," thought Dorothy.
She started down the hallway and the lights went out.
"What in the world? What shall I do? Joy gone and no one in the
house, that I can find. I can't figure this out."
She felt her way back to the big room. "This was the archway. Here
was the chair for Mrs. Robins. This was the throne for the witch." All

of a sudden Dorothy stopped. Was there some one in that same room with
her? It certainly felt that way."
"Oh-o-o-o-o!.' screamed Dot. "Don't come near me. I'll die."
"Stop!" cried Dorothy. "What do you want ?"
"Yo-o-u-u-u." Said a moaning voice.
M-mem-e-e-e-e ?" stammered poor scared Dot. What do-o-o you
w-w-want me for?"
"Soup," said the strange voice. "You are tender."
"Who are you ?" ' -
"You'll find out soon enough. Vlfhere are your friends?"
"I don't know. I can't find them," said Dot.
How long would it take Joy to get those apples? Why didn't she
hurry? If that thing said anything more she would faint.
Just then the lights flashed on. For a minute it seemed impossible
but here was the room full of people. Mrs. Robins was in her chair by
the door and Joy in her witches costume on the throne and everyone else
in her place.
"Weill" said Dot, "I certainly don't understand your little joke."
'Tm sorry but it is rather deep," replied Joy. "You see you have been
telling us for a week that you had never been frightened on Hallowe'en
so we thought it would be a good idea to show you that you could be
frightened. The noises you heard upstairs were to arouse your fear. I
dashed in, scared to death, to help along your imagination. I Went after the
apples this afternoon but you see I had to leave you some way. Now run
upstairs and jump into your costume while the rest of us finish the deco-
rations. It is seven thirty and you know the boys will come soon and we
must be ready. We didn't scare you too badly, did we ?"
"No, I'm all right," replied Dot. "But you certainly did have me go-
ing for awhile. Thanks for the scare. It will be somebody else next year,
thank goodness, and not me."
With that she left the room.

THE END OF TIME
"Oh, save me, Master, save me!" This was the cry in a little room
upon the top floor of a dismal old house. The room was cold and
dark, the very cheapest one in the whole house. The only pieces of fur-
niture in the room were an iron bed, a rickety table, and an old chair. A
clock stood on the table. It's face indicated ten-thirty. In the faint light
a figure could be made out in the corner bed. It lay huddled as if in worn
out slumber. Surely that cry could not have come from there.
It came again. "Save me, I beg of. you, or I shall perish! Death is
drawing near. Drive it awayg you have never failed me before."
No answer came. Who could it be? The figure on the bed stirred not.
Pleading, once more the voice was heard. "I never have failed you, Master,
these many years, since that day, so long ago, when you Hrst brought me
here. Every morning I would wake you, and I never have complained when
you stopped my mouth with your hand. I knew it was because you Wanted
a few minutes more sleep. Through the long lonesome days I have waited
for your steps at night. I always have met you patient and smiling. I have
been faithful to you. Will you not help me ?"
Still no answer was heard. The voice began again. "We were both
young when you brought me here. You would talk and plan for the future.
But the years slipped by and you' became old, wrinkled, tired, I grew old
with you. My youthful beauty is gone. I am bent and Worn and my hands
are scarred, until no semblance of their former loveliness remains. My face,
also, is old and wrinkled. You did not mean to be cruel but you have
brought these signs of time upon me. You were unaware of your care-
lessness. Through it all, I have still smiledg but now I can smile no more.
I am slowly dying. Do you not care ?"
A sob was in the voice. What agony it must be enduring! All was
still in the little room. The figure on the bed stirred restlessly. Did it
The weary voice beseeched once more. "Why do you neglect me, dear
Master? Have you tired of me? Do you desire a younger, fairer face to
sooth away your cares? I have always served you faithfully. Now I am
almost dead. Just reach forth. a hand and put life back into my poor tired
body. Tomorrow morning you will miss me. How can you refuse ?"
No stir from the bed. For the last time came the dying voice. "The
end is almost here. My heart is beginning to falter and soon it will stop.
You do not heed my cry. Please do not forget me when I am gone. I will
wait for you in heaven. Farewell."
The poor old clock had run down.

A WALKING GOURD
A broiling, hot sun shone down on Pat's bald head, as he trudged
down the dusty country road. Now and again he paused, to wipe the
sweat from his brow.
Suddenly, a little cabin, clean and white-washed, appeared on a rise.
It was surrounded by a green lawn, and was very appealing to the tired
and thirsty Pat.
He asked politely, "Faith, my lady, I'm nearly dry. Could I get a
"Why, yes," she replied. "I haven't any water drawn up, but if you'll
follow that trail, you'll find a spring, and a gourd beside it."
Pat trudged down the road. Midway, he met a tortoise, creeping
slowly toward him. He turned and ran screeching, down the trail.
"Oh, ma'am," he cried. "The spring's gone dry. I met the gourd,
coming to the house!"

Can it be the sun descending on the level of the water, or the Red
Swan floating, having been wounded by the magic arrow, staining the
water with its crimson blood? Yes, it is the sun sinking into the water

This, Iagoo beheld with joy as he told the story of Osseo, the Son of
the Evening Star.
"Many years ago a hunter lived in the Northland, with ten daugh-
ters. The fairest and youngest of the tall sisters was Oweenee, a silent
and dreamy maiden. All but she married brave warriors. Oweenee re-
jected all the handsome lovers and married Osseo, who was poor and ugly,
old and Weak.
All were invited to a great feast. The nine older sisters and their hus-
bands went on their way followed by Osseo and Oweenee, who walked in
Osseo often stopped and gazed at the Evening Star, and the sisters
heard him murmur: 'Pity, pity me, my father? Everyone but Oweenee
laughed at him until the forest rang with merry echoes.
Along the pathway lay the hollow trunk of an oak tree. Osseo gave a
shout of anguish and leaped into it an old man. But lo! he came out of the
other end transformed into a tall and handsome youth. But, alas! Oweenee
was transformed also. She became a weak old woman. Again the others
At the banquet everyone was having a good time except Osseo. He did
not eat or talk. He looked dreamy and sad. Then a voice seemed to be
heard from the sky.
'Oh, My son.' The spells that have bound you are brokeng ascend to
me. Eat the food and you will be changed to a spirit. Everything will be
turned to silver and the jesting men and women shall be changed to
Then the lodge began to tremble and to rise. Things turned to silver.
The nine sisters and their husbands turned into jays, blackbirds, and
thrushes. Osseo gave a shout and his wife changed to a beautiful woman
with clothes of ermine. Again the wigwam trembled as it continued to
ascend. At last it alighted on the Evening Star as thistledown drops on
Hereafter Osseo's father lived with him. The birds were put into the
silver cage. As Osseo's son grew up he was given bows and arrows to
sh'oot at the birds. One day he wounded a bird and she was transformed
into a young woman again. The magic spell was broken! Everything and
every one descended to earth as they had ascended. Then the birds
changed to pygmies. And on summer nights they are seen dancing hand
in hand when the Evening Star is shining."

NATURE PLAYS HIS PART
For six days now, Bill had been on the trail. Nothing but the blinding
snow and ever endless sled tracks lay before his eyes. Time passed, and
the quiet stillness was beginning to prey on his mind. Save for the squeak-
ing of the dog harnesses he did not hear a soundg but his never dying hate
kept him going forward. Not only was he getting tired, but his dogs were
beginning to show signs of fatigue.
Once or twice that day he had sighted a black speck far ahead, mov-
ing toward the mountains. The sight of this speck would bring a threat-
ening smile across his features, and he would urge his dogs forward with
all the speed that was left in their tired bodies.
Bill Murray was a young, broad-shouldered man of about twenty-
two. His brother and he had come North that fall, and set up a camp on
a small lake in northern Canada. The two brothers had had very good luck,
and had come out in the spring fairly prosperous. But one afternoon,
when Bill came in from his turn at the trap line, he found the cabin doors
half open and a large number of the prime furs gone. Bill's first thought
was that his brother had double-crossed him, but his sudden burst of
anger vanquished as quickly as it had come, and a cold sickening feeling
took its place as he spied his brother's form already mangled by the dogs
that were left at home. On closer observation he saw a small round hole
in the forehead of his brother.
Bill slowly gathered his brother up in his arms and carried him to
a hill behind the camp, where he performed a funeral ceremony. The
ground was frozen too hard to dig so Bill made a tomb of logs and ice.
Early next morning Bill had put both dog teams on one sled and was
well on his way before the sun came up. The first day was a long day, for
he traveled several hours after the sun had set. And again and again, for
five more days he repeated the same process. Not until now could he
glimpse the sled far ahead.
The next day would tell the tale, whether he would get this killer or
whether the killer would reach the mountain pass before he. If so Bill
could never catch him, because of lack of knowledge of the country be-
yond. The only way to reach the pass first was to cut across a rough and
dangerous region of foot hills at the foot of the pass. Bill determined to
take the chance. That night he rested very little, starting on his way again
before midnight, with only the stars as his guides. Although the dogs
were tired they labored several hours at a great pace. The sun was just
peeking over the mountain when he reached the foot hills.
All that day until mid-afternoon, Bill broke trail ahead of his team
so they would be able to have plenty of speed when they reached the last
long open space between the little range and the pass.
When he reached the valley, he called "mush" and really meant it
this time. The pass at fast-going was just about two hours off. The go-
ing was good for the wind had kept the snow hard like ice.
The great pass was soon looming up in front. Bill had wild visions
of seeing sleigh tracks through the pass but they would again disappear.
He was now calling frantically to his tired dogs, who were giving all they
had. The pass was reached but there were no other sleigh tracks there.
Bill sat down on his sled and called his dogs about him, while he
wiped the perspiration from his brow with a big fur mitten.
They had won! Yes,-beaten the hunted to the pass, and now he
would wait for him to appear. He waited all night and half the next day
but still the killer did not appear. Had he known what Bill was up to and
turned back? But no! Bill's eye caught the slow movement of an object
far up the valley. It grew bigger. It was a dog with part of his harness
still on its neck. Bill did not wait any longer. He quickly had his sled
headed the direction the dog had come from. But it was of no use for na-
ture had played her part. The killer and all his dogs but one had been
caught in a big snow slide.

THROW OUT THE LIFELINE
Calm and serene the broad liquid expanse stretched before him. He
had no business there, such a very young soul as he was, and furthermore
he had been repeatedly warned of the danger of slipping down the steep
bank and into the foaming brine. But alas, like so many inquisitive souls,
he could not resist. A gentle ripple, caused now and then by a slight
breeze, seemed to beckon him on to the placid water's edge.
Creeping cautiously forward to the edge of the steep bank, he looked
over and could distinctly discern his image in the pool far below. So intent
was he in thus playfully amusing himself that he stood but a step from
the edge. Just a single step separated him from life and a struggle with
death. But he heeded it not. Just a single step would place him on un-
certain ground, yet he went on with his playful maneuvers, apparently
unconscious of it all.
Presently, the inevitable happened. He took, all unaware, the single
step forward and down, down he went over the treacherous bank and
hit the watery surface below. Paralyzed with fear as his eyes, ears and
nose filled, he gasped a deep breath, drawing the slimy liquid into his
lungs. Up he rose to the surface, struggling violently, waving his legs
helplessly, clutching and grabbing but finding nothing to support him.
Down, down, he felt himself sink far the second time. Once more the
rushing and roaring in his ears. Once more the blinding of his eyes and
the deep gasp for breath. Swirling, and whirling and turning .he rose once
more to the surface within an inch from the edge. Struggling frantically
to reach the bank he felt himself slip for the last time. Just as his neck
sank below the surface he put forth his last struggle for life and gained
a hold on the shore.
Two minutes later he was climbing upward on a dry surface. "Whew!
That was a close shave," said the little fly to himself as he crawled up
the side of the cream pitcher.

ODE TO THE NIGHTINGALE
A long white fence.
A big black cat.
A terrible wail
-And that is that!
The cat sits atop
The long white fence
And opens its mouth.
-Oh! The consequence!
The night is black.
There isn't any moon.
Poor kitty is sad
-And so out of tune!
The air is chill.
The leaves scuttle down.
No one is seen.
-How quiet the town!
fIt makes me so sad
To tell you the rest.
The bullet hit Tom
The cat sings on.
He will not quit.
It's Hallowe'en night
And he's doing his bit.
The man doesn't care
For the pranks of the boys
But what he won't stand
Is this heathenish noise!
The wails of the black cat
Atop the white fence!
A death in the night
For the man takes his gun
From under his pillow 5-
Creeps out to a spot
Beneath the old Willowg-
And he's now with the blest.J

I often hear my mother singing songs I do not know
And she answers when I question herg Ther're songs of long ago.
'Old refrains of haunting sweetness mingled happiness and tears
Blended softly in remembranceg Hallowed souvenirs of years.
Then in fancy I am hearing, songs my memories will hold
And among them none is sweeter than the "Purple and the Gold."
For, the years I lived in High School I shall surely live again
In that dim and distant future when I sing my Old Refrain.

THE GOBLIN TRAIN
With wail of wind and swish of rain,
I heard the approach of the goblin train.
From my perch secure in the top of a tree,
I saw what mortal can seldom see:
Ghostly lights from that spooky train
Flickered, then burst into blue, ghost flame,
While into the night the passengers poured
Through tight-closed windows and tight-closed doors.
And as I sat and shivered with fear,
A dismal wailing smote my ear.
Those goblins and spooks began to dance,
Swaying and weaving about in a trance.
Nearer and nearer they drew to my tree,
And I knew that the fates were calling me,
And I let forth a shriek of mortal dread,
And awoke with a groan on the floor by my bed.

The children louder at their playg some farmer plowing early
I paid no heedg why need these prove the spring?
Was Spring: frogs - geese - children - plowing? . . . Fools!

And what was dead awoke, and came alive!

THE SCHOOL TEACHER
Of all the people from farmers to preachers,
The worst of them all are the bloody school teachers
Stay away from them, stay out of their clutches,
Or they'll run you down and have you on crutches.
How I hate a teacher! I'd rather be a squire,
A plumber, a mucker, or maybe a liar,
A Jew, a Swede, a guy from Spain,
A Wop, a Chink, a heathen, or a Dane.
How we work, they tell us what to do.
They tell us how easy it is when we are through.
They give us tests and all such bunk.
They say it is easy, BUT WE ALL FLUNK.

Over the turbulent waters he glided,
Over the rapids and over the falls,
Reached the canyon, whose rocky caverns
Challenge the sky with their gaping walls.

Glad for the end of a perfect day-
One lone warrior, just from the battle-
Far to the westward, away and away...

Under a ban-
So what am I going to do?
