UR high school has chosen for the theine
of its annual this year, Inspiration---to
higher places and better things. On its
pages are futuristic buildings, their domes en-
throned in clouds, symbols of an age of even
greater perfection than our present day. The
world is looking heaienward in its Ideals and to
symbolize this, the airplane soars at the tops of
Slzagina's pages. Mount Verizon High is also
striving toufards the highest goal. The year
1928-1929 has placed our school well along on
the ladder to Success, and may this book ever be
a reininder of that, of the good tilnes, and of an
Inspiration to the highest rung of the Ladder.

OON we are leaving. W' hen we're gone
Shall we miss these inanimate things?-H
The roo1ns, the seats, the corrizlors,
The window-views, the hell that rings?
As the years pass anal we are weighted
With cares signipeant of Man's estate---
Shall we recall how we hesitated
-Our footsteps, once, toward this fate?
Or shall it seein as nothing to ns--
N 0 sentiment reeall---no rzneinories bring?
Ah, no! That were like never knowing
That winter'd gone and it was spring!
There,ll he no feast nor loncl-rung hells
To announce our grarlnation,
But in our heart, at parting, dwells
A pain of separation.

E have not always spent our days
within your classrooms nor will we
he allowed to do so for long.
We have pointed out with pride your campus
and halls. A few times we have wished we might
"play hookyv, hut more often we have entered
your halls of learning with light steps.
You have elosed your doors against the class of
'29 except as welcome visitors. The elass of '29
take with them not only the memories of a stern,
dignified huilding, hut the memories of associa-
tions, friendships and moments that mark mile-
stones in their lives.
To you, Mount Vernon Hi, we owe a large
measure of our future sueeess.

My heart is a beautiful garden
A hower, fragrant and cool,
'Tis there my fairy phantorns play
And sniile at the sparkling pool.
At twilight when the world's at peace
After the weary day
And the sun has yielded to the nite
And passed with one last ray
And a gentle breeze from the ocean
Softly stirs the cooling air
I gladly close rny weary eyes
And weave my fancies fair.
You are a fairy knight, love,
And I, your Princess true
And we dwell in the land of golden hours
The land of dreams corne true.

port amid flying colors. School spirit and pep have always characterized
the class of '29.
The basketball quintet and debate team came from our brave crew.
Two of our men went to the district track meet, and one to the state
meet. We took important parts in the operetta and school pm
put over a successful Senior Vodvil. We cannot but shed a tea 'agllldtllki W

Come in, darling, I'm so glad you dropped in from Europe. I'Ve got just
oodles to tell you. I was trying to recollect our old class mates and come to
think about it, I believe I've seen or heard about them all in the last year or so.
Why, just yesterday, I saw Elaine Austin riding on an immense float and
on the Boat were the words, "President of the Womenls Welfare' League." Ken-
neth Brandstrom is president of the International Garbage Association, now, and
it's been rumored that he has been seen quite a lot with Marie Tower lately.
You can't imagine what I read in the paper yesterday. Big headlines . . .
Willard Nelson, prominent City Dump Salvager, sued by wife for Alienation of
Affections. Mrs. W. C. Nelson, formerly Florence Anderson of Mount Vernon,
has appealed to Judge Starr for divorce from her husband. She charges that
Ruth Youngren, snappy little dancer at the Rex Theatre, has lured him away
from his home and family. Mr. Nelson's lawyer, Marcella Crabtree, says that
Mr. Nelson hasn't much chance of winning with two women fighting over him.
Mrs. Nelson's lawyer, Olaf Hytmo, seems to have great hopes of winning her
KElapse of Timel.
Well, here we are. I know that man at the door-Ranville Hart. And
there's Camilla Eliason, Pauline Springer, and Genevieve Gordon ushering.
Upon my word! There's Brick Holmstrom and Cal Washburn tap-dancing.
Oh, what a darling chorus-now which one is Ruth Youngren? The one in the
middle? Those two together on the right are Edna Hastings and Elinor Om-
holt. And the two on the left are Evelyn La Fond and Lillian Brandstrom, and
those two behind Ruth are Rhoda Leander and Dorothy Lamsdale.
It seems good to get out in the air again-let's walk home instead of taking
a taxi. Catch me, quick, somebody. That taxi-driver is Kenneth Musser. Do
you remember Stanley Phillips? and remember that scow-the Harvester?
They've made it into a sort of passenger boat, and Stanley is leading a two-
piece orchestra. Ruth Abbott and Floyd Martinson are in it. Stanley's wife,
formerly Margaret Pearce, is counter girl.
You want a facial, dear? I know just the sweetest beauty parlor. I'll
take you down right after breakfast. Oh, certainly, I'll take you home in my
' Well, here's the shop. The proporietor is Dick Lovaas, and he gives just
marvelous facials. The manicurists are Edythe Safstrom and Alma White.
Ready? Let's go. Here's the flying field. There are Emanuel Axelson,
Kermit Carlson and Clarence Helde, learning aviation, I guess.
iElapse of Timel.
Here's Hollywood. Look, that sign says "John Gilbert." Oh, someone's
doubling for him! Why it's Dave Williams. And there goes Lon Chaney with
his double, Rufus Kamb. And look at that line of extras. There's Ellen Mc-
Donald, Ruth Abbott, and Genevieve Axelson. And there's Edgar Y
Jimmie Simon and Glenn Poindexter.
Let's read the paper while We're flying. Oh! here's an article
famous tennis player, Kenneth Murray. And here's something
Robinson, the famous bill board artist. Horace Wells is a great

good paper-all about every one I ever knew. I wonder who edits it. Mary
What's that big thing on the ground? A big tent? Let's stop and see.
It's an Evangelist tent at that.
My-what a crowd! There the speaker is--she's red-headed, and looks
familiar. That man's going to introduce her. It's Bob Randall and he's intro-
ducing Margi Ricker. Of all people to take up Four Square Gospel. Who's
that who just came in-Why it's Mary Hutchinson, Fern Martin and Walter
Moberg. And there's Claude Whitehead, Ellen Peterson, Alfreda Gustafson,
Clifton Perryman and Charles Summers. Let's go outside, dear, she'll talk for
hours. Oh, let's get some hamburgers over there. Two hamburgers, please.
Why, isn't that Lloyd Hazleton and Mary Olson?
Here we are in the air again. Do you remember Glenn Mitchell who claim-
ed to be God's gift to women? I heard he's coaching kindergarten tots in foot-
ball. Eddie Rose has acquired quite a name for himself as an electrical engi-
neer. Remember Helen Perryman and Leah Lamb-they're doing quite well
in the literary field.
What's that in the air? It's a floating' tea room and held up by the most
gorgeous balloons. Let's go in! Why, there's Janice Everett and Elizabeth
Stearns as Waitresses. Oh, we'll have tea and wafers please.
fPause during process of eatingj.
My, that tea was good. There's Elsie Erickson at the cash register. The
chef, talking to her, is Berridge Marsh. What's that person doing over in the
corner? You say he's the bouncer? Look, he's tying a parachute to that
drunk man. Oh-he kicked him out. What language-my word, that bounc-
er is Bill Minahan.

What'sf that big thing Heating. It says "Hospital" Let's stop and go in.
Who's that Doctor at the door? It's Winton Olsen-and the nurses are Delia

With Robert Anderson at the helm and a capable crew and with
Miss Clarke and Mr. Windus to stabilize our ship, the Juniors finally
forced the rest of the school to recognize them. They started off first
by Winning both girls' and boys' interclass basketball championship.
Then the girls ,took the Volley Ball Championship.
In tennis, Gus alias Alvin Gustafson took first for the Junior rep-
resentative and Dorothy Galyean took first in the girls' tournament.
In the first semester the operetta, "The Lass of Limerick ToWn,',
was presented and the Juniors had a good representation in the leads
Also the Juniors have fairly outdone themselves in the Honor
Society, showing that although they may be weak in athletics, they are
not in studies. ?
Then again in the class play all three of the important le llslwlflre
taken by the Juniors. Incidentally, this play was praised as tgllellfjeslt
And then there was the Senior vaudeville in which a
Juniors took part.
28 SKAGINA 1929
Last, but not least came the Senior-Junior picnic, which was held
at the oft visited Lake Samish. Here, swimming, racing and boating
were featured, besides of course, the eats.
Again the Juniors were represented on every edition of the Bulldog.
In a general summing up of events, you see, the Juniors haven't
done so poorly. What say? Oh, of course they were a little unruly
but then with a bunch of live wires like us you couldn't expect much
As for athletic material, there's "Half Lapi' Weyrich, who'll be back
next year. Also "Two Tone." Edenholm. Another is "Flash,',
Stevens on the high splits.
A few of the monickers that the Juniors have are: "Cy" Olsen
for Crystal Olsen, I don't know where Cy came from unless it is Crystal.
Then there's "Shuffle," Hildebrand. Why? Can't you figure it out?
because he can't even dance. "Choo, Choo" Nord must be because he
snores. "Gazoot" Lewis, maybe it's right. "Mud" Kuhn, must be
his complexion. "Acreage" Kragness, bet you itis his feet!
Well, we'll let you in on what Omar the prophet told us. He
prophecies a very bright future, especially in scholarship. But wait, he
claims Stevens will get all "A's',, Qhe's dampj. Then athletics, all
Junior boys are going to enter something, he foretells. Many of this
famous and long standing class, fyou may sit downj, are going to
bring glory not only to themselves, but to others in their Senior year.

HE Sophomore class returned from their Freshman year with
159 members. They won the right to duck the Frosh by win-
ning a tug-of-war.
The first social event of the class was held before Christmas, after
the Hamilton vs. Mount Vernon basketball game. The entertainment
committee, composed of Helen Turner, Viola Esary, Vera Quinn, Bill
Rafter, Alfred Davis, and Cra Elwell, planned a delightful evening for
all. A short program Was given. The main number was a play called
"The Unseen", in which Kelly Dowd, Viola Esary and Helen Turner
took the leads. Afterwards refreshments were served.
The sophs are really an intelligent class. They have 31 members in
the Honor Society. They found their Way into the glee clubs and other
musical organizations, sports, and all school activities.
With the help of Miss Carroll and Mr. Moore, they have had fmqpylllx
successful year, and We hope they will remain so throughout

THE WOES OF A FRESHMAN BOY
"Oh, horrors! there goes that crazy bell again. Why can,t it keep
quiet for a minute?" were my thoughts as I picked up my scattered
books and started for the door. I heard what I thought to be a giggle
behind me, and looked back to see everybody sitting in his seat as usual
but grinning and laughing at me. I stumbled back to my seat hot With
mortification, realizing that that was the bell marking a half period in-
stead of the end of study. My comforting thought was, this time to-
morrow I would be in gym and that would be lots of fun.
A greater embarrassment fell upon me the next day when I heard
the boys talking about "gym lockersf' I immediately rushed to the
office and got my gym locker close to the one for my books in the main
building. I didn't know quite how I was going to change my clothes
in that small space, but then, if others could I surely could manage it.
Finally my gym period came and I squashed into my locker and
eventually got into my gym clothes. I rushed gleefully out to the
gym but when Mr. Kolkana very sternly asked me why I Was late I
tried to explain I had to Wait till the halls were empty before I could
start getting ready. The boys had a hearty laugh and I began looking
for a hole to crawl into When I realized that gym lockers were in the
My embarrassment has been nearly as high when on later occasions
I walked into the Domestic Science rooms instead of the manual train-

A large chorus, glee club, and quartet make up the girls' part in the
Music Department. These organizations have had a very active year
and have worked faithfully and earnestly. Assisted by local talent,
the Girls' Chorus presented a cantata, t'The Rose Maiden", by Cowen,
which was given in compliment to the Mount Vernon Music Club. The
school operetta, "The Lass of Limerick Town," which was given in
the fall, was the important work of the Glee Club. Besides this, the
Club has sung at the State Convention of the W. C. T. U., the Mount
Vernon P. T. A., Debates, meetings of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, and at the different Service Clubs. On April 20, they Won
second place in the Annual Music Contest held at the Bellingham
Girls' Quartet: Georgia Cooper, Helen. Moore, Ianiee Everett,
The Girls, Quartet is a very important part of the Music D tl
ment. The girls have shown real talent, and have delighted rh

HIGH SCHOOL BAND
Our high school band has had one of its most successful years. It
has been before the public more than any other school organization and
has done much to advertise Mount Vernon.
They Went to the state fair at Yakima, to Snohomish at the district
Basket Ball tournament, and alsgspent a day in Seattle at the state Basket
Ball tourney. The band played at the county football and basket ball
games during the year.
The Tulip Association of Bellingham chose our band as one of those
to play at the Annual Tulip Festival. It also entered a contest which
was in connection with the festival.
The class A district band contest was won for the 3rd consecutive
year. The band takes this opportunity of thanking Mr. Steele for what
he has done for them and the interest he has shown in helping to put
Mount Vernon on the map.
HIGH SCHOOL ORCHESTRA
A year to be proud of was brought to a close by the orchestra with
the Northwest District Contest. The orchestra took first place in Class
A. Their opponents for that place, Everett, had concentrated all their
efforts on the orchestra. However, through the untiring efforts of Mr.

THE DRIFTW OOD LOG
" 2 It was a balmy May morning typical of the Puget Sound count-
ry. The sun was just beginning his day's journey through a
cloudless sky, and the air was fresh and sweet, as a result of the
rain of the day before. A light mist covered the water, partly
veiling the neighboring islands and main land. Toward the
north-east a brown smudge in the sky indicated the location of the
metropolis of the north-west. From that direction also came a low
hum of industry, intensified occasionally by a distant boat whistle.
The early morning ferry had just docked, and was preparing to leave
on its return trip to Seattle. About a quarter of a mile from the dock
a lone young man was making his way along the beach. He was a
native of the island, and well known to all its citizens as Ronald Price,
the boy who supported his widowed mother at the same time he educat-
ed himself. He was working in the city this spring, so that he could
save enough money to complete his high school course at the local high
the next fall term. He had found employment in a printing establish-
ment where he worked five nights of the week. It was Saturday morn-
ing and he was coming home to spend the week-end with his mother in
their humble beach cottage, which was located about half a mile around
the point from the ferry landing.
He was just rounding the point, a place seldom frequented by
human beings. A narrow strip of beach separated a steep gravel bluff
from the water. At the foot of the bluff lay several driftwoodi logs,
one of which was conspicuous, because of its great diameter. At the
top of the bluff, almost directly above the huge log, a scraggly tree, with
its roots partly exposed as a result of the ravages of the waves, stood in
defiance of the northerly storms, which occasionally sweep the region.
It was while Ronald, with his eyes fixed on this tree, comparing its
, struggling existence to his own, noticed something strange. He
and watched for several minutes to make sure his eyes were not
him. But they were not. He could plainly see smoke leave
near one of the exposed roots of the tree and curl up its trunk,
hidden in the needles of the upper part of the tree.
could this smoke come from? He stood and pondered for
minutes, then decided to go home, get his day,s sleep and come
.again at night and examine the locality for clues which might
light on the matter.

lg :fs as
He slept soundly till early the next morning, then it did not take
him long to reach the vicinity of the scraggly tree. This time he took
the path along the top of the bluff, which led to a point of vantage
from which he could View the beach below. When he reached this point
a queer swishing noise over his head startled him. He glanced quickly
upward, to see the black hulk of a seaplane glide over his head and alight
on the water below. A row-boat, which he had not noticed, trans-
ported the airplane's three passengers and its cargo of several gunny
sacks full of something to shore, where several men picked up a gunny
sack apiece and made for the large driftwood log. Ronald's heart beat
faster as he waited to see what would happen next, but sank at least a
foot and stopped when he felt a stern hand upon his shoulder and was
carried roughly backward to an old abandoned shack some distance
from the edge of the bluff. There a man jabbed a pistol into his ribs
and ordered him to follow a second.
"Another helper for O'Keefe on the Nanaimo end, eh, Tom?"
"Yeh, just the guy he needed, V11 send him with Bill this morningf,
Their way led down a ladder to the bottom of an old dry well.
Here, to Ronald's surprise, the man he was following opened a cleverly
hidden door and entered a dark subterranean passageway.
After some minutes of traveling through the tunnel, they entered a
dimly lighted room. It had strange round sides, and it was some time
before Ronald inferred that this was the large driftwood log on the
beach. The room was full of men. It was heated by a small cooking
stove at one end. It was from here, then, that the mysterious smoke
His escorts turned him over to a man in aviator's clothes, whom they
ordered to take him along to Nanaimo, where "Andy" would put him
Ronald was led to a cabin, also well hidden in the trees. This was
full of sleeping men and a stern, hard-boiled appearing middle aged
man sat at a desk busily figuring up something or other.
He was given a bunk beside a small window. He did not feel like
sleeping, so he raised himself on his elbow and gazed out the window.
He soon became tired of this, however, and was about to lie down o 1
his bed again, when he noticed something slipping through t HI Hgels
about where the creek entered the salt water. A moment late gpllllfffl-
vealed itself as the sea-plane, drifting out to sea, with the ro Hwlitlli
which it had been tied dangling from a pontoon.
Ronald remembered being warned not to try to escape

one must be off duty now to let an expensive airplane drift away, and
now, if ever was his time to act. He glanced around the room, saw that
everyone save 0,Keefe, who was still busy at his desk, was asleep, then
crawled out the window. Ronald swam out to the plane and clambered
He glanced out of the cabin to get one last look at the den of "the
gang" so that he could identify it when he returned with government
officials for the purpose of capturing Andy O'Keefe. His hopes of
escaping sank, however, when he saw that the beach was swarming with
men and that he was being pursued by a rowboat.
Now he must do more than drift. Could he do it?i He had been
given ground lessons by a world war ace who for a time had been his
neighbor, but he had only taken an air ride once before he was kidnap-
ped, so this would be his supreme test. This plane was started by a
crank on the side of the engine. By the time he had primed her, his
pursuers had drawn close to him. He had time to crank her only once,
for the rowboat was within a dozen feet of the plane. The throttle
was well open, and she started away over the water with a leap, with
Ronald struggling to enter the cabin.
When he finally got hold of the stick she was traveling nearly fast
enough to ascend and he took to the air in what was later described by
one of the gang members as "the prettiest take off I ever saw.',
He had flown for perhaps a half hour when he saw below him a
small city which he reasoned must be Nanaimo. His landing was not
as beautiful as his take-off had been, but although his plane was con-
siderably smashed, Ronald was not hurt, and he was able to tell his story,
strange but true, to Canadian government oihcials.
A week later Ronald Price was known not only to native islanders
but also to nearly everyone in the United States and Canada as the
brilliant young aviator wh-o had captured Andrew O,Keefe, and his
he greatest company of outlaws in the history of the Northwest.

dollars worth of currency and bonds which they had stolen

SANDY MAKES GOOD
A scorching desert sun blazed down on a small
group of men, American fliers, gathered by the hang-
' ar of the Sahara patrol, an amber haze had settled
1" 'ff over the rolling dunes and planes beyond.
"Not much like a Nov. 11, in the good old U. S. A." remarked
Lieutenant Hall, his brown eyes sparkling. "A few years ago today,
I felt pretty good myself," replied Sandy Ross with a chuckle, 'ibut it
would be kinda hard to celebrate in this place, stand still an hour and
you are covered with sand."
"Well boys," said Lieutenant Hall, "if we cannot celebrate we can
have the satisfaction of knowing we have kept peace among these natives
for a year and a half."
A moment of silence ensued, for the Patrol Squadron was proud of
its record. Altho a machine gun ready for use, was mounted on the
cowling of every plane, not one had been used.
Sandy broke the silence by saying: "Is that new man from Morocco
going with the patrol this morning.
"Yes," said Lieutenant Hall, "he knows a ship from a to zg he's
piloted a plane since 1916 and he has an enviable record, but I can,t
say I approve-',
"Here he comes now," interrupted Sandy, "and he sure looks like
mischieff' All the men turned to look at the new stranger, by name Mc-
Neil, there was no trace of kindness in his beady eyes or on his tanned
face. A certain undefinable harsh boldness was evident from the top
of his close cropped black hair to the tips of his shiny black Morocco
His beady eyes searched the group and singled out the flight com-
mander. He executed a perfect salute, and said, "Reporting for patrol

"It's all tommy rot, the only good Tuareg is a dead one." The motors
had been warmed up by the mechanics and seemed to be Waiting only
for the word go. All the boys were trained airmen but McNeil showed
his ability by a beautiful take-off.
An hour later the v formation passed over the small village of
Bashier and headed East, the sun beat down with desert intensity and a
restless feeling took hold of Sandy, but all was well, for just ahead he
could see the helmets of his comrades, all good fellows, except that No.
3 didn,t seem to fit in. Suddenly his thoughts were interrupted by the
plane ahead flicking its tail, breaking formation and darting to the left.
In the pilot's seat sat McNeil, erect in his uniform, like a stone god.
Why did he break formation? asked Sandy of himself. He scanned Mc-
Neil's line of flight, and saw miles ahead a gleam of light, then another
and another. The French camel police were signaling by means of a
heliograph-he comprehended one word B-A-R-C-A Qraidj a native
tribe was raiding the village, and McNeil was headed for that spot.
It was too late to call his companions, he must overtake McNeil
alone. He opened the throttle and his machine responded with in-

to slow down and drop behind him, but McNeil failed to see or compre-

more attempt to stop McNeil. He was passing when McNeil swerved
to the left, the wings of the two planes met with a force that nearly tore
them from their places. Sandy's plane made a feeble attempt to recover
but sputtered and died.
When Sandy awoke, sand was in his eyes and Bill Stowe was lifting
him from the wreckage, and saying: "Sorry we didn't get here sooner,
but you did a mighty fine job yourself." Sandy ignored these remarks
and said: "did McNeil get hurt, I tried to stop him but I couldn,t.,'

FAREWELL TO SENIGRS
On the seniors of any school must fall the chief burden of upholding
the standards of that school and of carrying on the activities not so
directly connected with class work. I have watched with keen interest
the development of a sense of responsibility within the class in relation
to hoth school work and extra-curricular activities, that augurs well for
the success of its members in meeting the difficulties to he encountered
when school days are over.
I trust that each one of you will realize your sacred ohligations to
do two things: to develop to the utmost the latent powers and ahilities
you all possess, and to dedicate a portion of that ahility to the services
of the community which makes your education possihle.
I have felt a deep personal gratitude for the friendly rece
courteous treatment I have received from the members of the
class. I shall watch your careers with conpdence that you
worthy of the trust placed in you.
Spring, with its youth, its joy,
Its hope and its sweet, new life,
Reminds one of a wee, playful boy
Before he has ever known strife.
Summer, with its warm caress,
It's fulfilled hope and gladdened May,
ls just that infant child in redress,
And grown older, day by day.
Fall, with its beautiful, turning leaves,
Its steadfastness and gentle rains,
Makes the season an older man
From whom middle age has reaped its gains.
Winter, lastly, pitiful in its snow-white
Lonely in its pure, quiet tomb,
Is Spring, his cycle of life passed
Who has received, like a man, his doom.

FROM FRESHMAN TO SENIOR
When I was just a grade school kid
My hopes toward High School soared
I thought me far too elegant
My classmates found me bored.
And then a Freshman I became
What happiness was mine
Until I was a Sophomore
And Freshmen lost their shine.
Then a Sophomore was my lot
My heart was overjoyed
A Iunior crossed my luckless path
My ideal was destroyed.
Then I a junior viewed my gains
And found me high in might
I saw a senior proud and smart
My joy died overnight.
At last a senior now am I,
Commencement! Dances! Gosh!
But from this lofty pinnacle
I wish I were a Frosh.

girls interested in athletics. Its aim is to forward girls athletics in
the high school. Thereby building healthier minds and bodies. It
corrects faulty posture, aids in hygienic living, helps the girls to secure
bodily vigor, promotes good sportsmanship and ties of friendship among
the girls. There was a petition put out at the beginning of the year
to get more girls interested in the G. A. A. The campaign was found
to be a success and the membership was increased greatly.
An empty room in the gymnasium was remodeled by the G. A. A.
for a club room.

Many girls turned out for volley ball and after several Weeks of
practice, teams Were organized. The classes competed for champion-
ship. There Was a close race between the Juniors and Freshmen but
the upper classmen finally triumphed.
The first sport of the season was field ball. This game is similar to
hockey, but played with a basketball. Though many girls turned out
and all Were interested in the sport, rainy weather prevented its success.
No teams were organized. This sport took the place of soccer which
was the fall sport last year.
THE SPIRIT OF AVIATION
Through the burning heat of the desert sun,
Through the dark and foggy night,
Not snow, nor rain, nor hail, nor sleet,
Can stay the pilot in his flight.
The mail must be carried onward
With speed, and without delay.
When a pilot takes his seat in the cockpit:
He can never turn back in dismay.
He is on the earth but a secondg
Then he soars in the sky all alone,
With the misty white clouds for companions,
And for sound, the great engine's moan.
A haven at last after weary hours,
With the compass his only guide,
Then safely he'll land again on earth,
With a long, smooth, sweeping, glide.
Here's to the Spirit of Aviation! T I
To the inventors, and pilots so bold, I A i
I ' N l w
We must keep that gay Spirit a-burning, lx N
And cherish it more than gold.

Last year baseball was abolished as a sport and played only in the
gym classes. This year, however, it was revived as the spring sport.
Forty-five girls turned out, most of these were Freshmen. The turn-
outs were held twice a Week. Most of the time was spent practising and
teams were not chosen until late in the season. Some snappy playing
was expected from the various classes as there was fine material for good
fyteams. Peggy Brotherton was general manager for the turn out, While
:Knees Lange was manager for Freshmen and Sophomores and Lois

points. One hundred points are given any member on a first team and
fifty points for being on the second team. Eight hikes net one hundred

The football season of 1928 opened with but one regular member
of the great team of 1927. However, a team was soon rounded into
shape and Went into the season with plenty of Hght in spite of the fact
that all were new men.
The season did not prove to be a successful one, but it did prove to
be a season of spectacular plays.
Huntly Gordon's long punts will not be forgotten by the football
fans for sometime to come. Brick Holmstromls wonderful defensive
play Won him respect whenever he played and the school will long re-
member his fighting spirit. Huntly, as center and Brick, as tackle,
Were chosen for the county all star team. This season also brought -out
many players from the under classes Who are expected to dig in their
cleats for the Green and White in the years to come.

COUNTY LEAGUE GAMES
Burlington 5, Mount Vernon 36. The first county league game
was played with Burlington. After the first five minutes of play there
was no doubt but that Mount Vernon would Win by a large score.
Mount Vernon 18, Anacortes 13. This game, played at Anacortes
was the best game of the season. Mount Vernon led throughout the
game but never had a lead of more than four points. Gordon was high
point man with eleven markers.
Mount Vernon 17, Sedro-Wfoolley 18. With only three minutes to
play, Sedro-Woolley, or rather Coffey, went on a rampage and overtook
an eight point lead to defeat the Bull Dogs, 18 to 17. The half ended
8 to 3 in favor of Mount Vernon. Coffey Was the outstanding star of
Burlington 9, Mount Vernon 49. Again the Bull Dogs growled
fought their Way to an overwhelming victory. Displaying an
brand of ball they trounced Burlington to the tune of 27 to 2
half, with the final count being 49-9.
Mount Vernon 25, Anacortes 15. Anacortes came to l X
non determined to give the Bull Dogs a trimming. But
82 SKAGINA 1929
the Mount Vernon team had shown its superiority by having a 13 to 4
Sedro-Woolley 8, Mount Vernon 14. This was the deciding game
for the county championship of class A. Both teams entered the con-
test with four Wins and one loss.
The contest was slow the first half, both teams playing a defensive
game, the score at half time being S to 4. In the second half Gordon
got busy and added 7 more points to the score while Thompson added 2.
Final sc-ore was 14-8 in favor of the Bull Dogs.
Concrete 18, Mount Vernon 22. In the play off for the county
championship, Concrete gave Mount Vernon a real good scare. The
Bulldogs played very poor basketball for three quarters. Then in the
last five minutes they realized that something must be done. With the
score 16 to 10 against them, Mount Vernon began to throw the ball
through the loop from all angles. It was a great rally and the Bulldogs
deserved to win, 22-18.
The District tournament was held in Snohomish. In the opening
game the Bulldogs defeated Lynden in a one-sided game 30-15.
In the second game we met Everett. The game was in doubt until
about' three minutes before the end. But those last few minutes it was
all Mount Vernon and the Bulldogs emerged Victorious 39 to 31.
In the Hnal game of the district tournament Mount Vernon was
nosed out by Blaine by one point. The game was a thriller from start
to finish, but that boy Hansen was just too good for the Bulldogs. By
winning this game Blaine took the district championship and Mount
Vernon second. Everett took third place by defeating Whatcom.
I' Wenafchee 15, Mount Vernon 26. The Bulldogs opened the State
Q rnament with the powerful Wenatchee team. Mount Vernon
ed the game with a determination that could not be denied. With
on leading the attack the half ended 16 to 9. In the second half
han connected with four field goals While Gordon added two
to bring his total to 14 points for the game. At no time did the
atchee team ever threaten the Bulldogs.

the end -of the first quarter. The second quarter was a nip and tuck
affair, Mount Vernon scoring 6 points while Walla Walla counted 8 to
end the half with the Bulldogs leading 16 to 14. The second half was
a duplicate of the first. Neither team seemed to have any advantage,
but the tenacious Bulldogs were able to hold their two point lead to the
finish and Hnally won 31-29.
Mount Vernon 10, North Ccnfral 19. North Central,s giants and
state champions of last year were just too big for the fighting Bulldogs.
Before Mount Vernon could settle down to playing basketball, North
Central had scored 8 points. The quarter ended 8 to 0. In the second
period Minahan scored two field goals and Frazier and Hart one foul
each, while the North Central team was held scoreless. Thus ended
the half 8 to 6.
North Central opened the half with two baskets in succession.
Frazier then converted a foul shot. But the Bulldogs could not hit the
loop and the former champions won out 19-10.
Prosser 1 5, Mount Vernon 20. The Prosser team lost to Olympia in
che Saturday morning contest while Mount Vernon lost to North
Central, thus the two teams met to decide the 3rd and 6th place teams
The game was slow the Hrst quarter both teams playing cautious
basketball. The quarter ended 1-0 in favor of Prosser. In the second
quarter both teams connected for two field goals and one foul, ending
the half with the score 6 to 5 for Prosser.
At the start of the 2nd half Mount Vernon .decided to be Bulldogs
and tore into their opponents with an attack which netted five field
goals. Prosser added 1 field goal and a foul in the 3rd period. In
the last period both teams missed many shots, being over anxious, but
Prosser managed to annex 6 points and the Bulldogs 4, thus giving the
Bulldogs Victory and 3rd place in the state.
Gordon-His floor work and ability to make baskets were of such a caliber that he was
chosen as second all state center.
Thompson---An excellent gruard, and capable of putting in a basket or two when needed.
Minahan-An Irishman, which of course means lots of fight. He is small but mighty. A

REVIEW OF THE TRACK SEASONS OF '28 Sz '29
During the early part of the '28 track season the local High School
completed one of the best tracks in the state.
The track is a quarter mile with a 220 yard straight away on the
one side. The entire track was cindered and rolled by willing helpers
of the High School.
The County track meet was a thriller and many records were
broken, the high jump was placed on the local shelf when Gordon jump-
ed S-9:71. Dee Maske clipped 4-S of a second off the 120 yard high
hurdles and gave Mount Vernon a record of 17.2 for the high hurdles.
The county meet netted the local school 68 points.
In the district meet Mount Vernon was nosed out by 1 point,
Everett winning the meet.
Mount Vernon then entered the state meet at Pullman and here
placed fourth in the state. Those entering the meet were Carl Lippert,
Fred Hantleman, Emmett Schroeder and Huntly Gordon.
Hantleman placed second in the shot, Schroeder placed first
Javelin, Gordon placed second in the High Jump.
The local High School in order to show its appreciation to
sent Schroeder and Hantleman to the National Track meet
Schroeder took fourth in the Javelin throw.
86 SKAGINA 1929
Out of this great team of tracksters all graduated but Huntly Gord-
on who in 1929 set a new District record of 5'11-58,2 The local team
scored third in the County and fifth in the District.
Huntly Gordon again enters the State meet at Pullman and if he
comes up to form, should enter the National Meet at Chicago.
Mount Vernon will have on hand for its 1930 track team, eight
veterans of the 329 season and should again annex the County Champ-
On page 98 are the County records up to the end of the 1929 season.
It will be noticed that Mount Vernon holds 13 out of the 14 records.
But we cannot lay back and rest on these records. Let,s make 1930
another great track year!
A good reputation can be made by playing the
game fairlyg by a cheerful cooperation under
very trying conditionsg by carrying on in the
face of difficultiesg by doing ones best and
gh sitting tightg and by being resolute enough to
U ' own up to your own mistakes.

THE SPIRIT OF THE AIRPLANE
Out of the clear blue sky,
Far above the tall fir trees,
Swifter than birds that fly,
Winging with grace and ease,
Soars a lark of man's creating
Black in the distance it looms,
Like a joyful soul elating
Up thru the white clouds it zooms.
From heaven to earth in a sweep,
From earth to a paradise
Where the birds and winds wild revels keep,
Where misty fog greets sunrise
Throbbing with power and life,
Flirting and laughing at death
Defying the sea in its strife
Daring the typhoons mocking breath.
This whirring inan made eagle
Surges upward rejoicing and free
Outstripping each hawk and seagull
Triumphant, unquenchable liberty.
Wherever there is air
And men are brave and true and strong
A ceasless hum you hear
A magic motors wondrous song.

A PILOTS IDEA OF HEAVEN
You may rave of your subs and liners,
The masters of the foam,
But the place I love, is in the clouds above
And there, I'1n always at home,
I love to soar through endless space,
To me, earth-life is tame,
I like tof feel the wind in my face
And take life as an easy game.
It's great to taxi alone through the blue,
And happily dream of tomorrow
When, once again I'll take to the wing,
N o trouble or care I'll borrow.
I'm not a second Lindy,
Or Byrd or Chamberlain great,
I'rn just a sky-wanabring gypsy,
And my tent is a Curtis crate.
I'1n not a long distance flyer,
Or fearless stunter of the air,
I'1n merely a wandering child of the sky,
And I'm closer to Him up there.
An air man's idea of Paradise,
Is a traffic cop camped on a cloud
To quiet these back-seat drivers,
And enforce, "No Spooning Aloudf'
Or perhaps to deal in wedding rings,
And assist Master Cupid's cause,
For after an Immelman or two,
So stick to your easy chan 1 you will,

SCENARIO OF SCHOOL LIFE .
fFadc slowly in.j
SCENE I-fAskey field, Monday afternoon, Mount Vernon An-
nual play-day.j The grand stand is rapidly Hlling. Familiar faces and
voices greet us. Members of the faculty come tripping up two by two.
But Where are Miss Clarke and Mr. Starr, Bill Moore and Miss Norlin?
We idly wonder where they are? Here comes Mary Olson in a most
attractive pink and purple sport outfit, and following her, Teddy Britton
frantically trying to keep track of Mary's pet lap-dog.
The crowd is talking excitedly of the events which are to take place
that day. The band, in which Miss McCormack plays a piccolo, Mr.
Steele, the JeW's harp, while Mrs. Whipple manages the drums, strikes
up the snappy, stirring strains of Ramona.
SCENE 2-The Hrst event of the day is a pie eating contest. Mr.
Foster is the Captain of Mount Vernon's team and the most enthusiastic
memberg the others are Wanda XVilson, Ruth Wersen, Peggy Brotherton,
and Mary Louise La Venture. Of course, our team, with their avari-
cious appetites wins easily amid the mad cheers of the crowd.
SCENE 3-fSame Sceneryj . Several events have taken place.
Now comes the hurdle racing. Betsy Moore, Brick Holmstrom, Nez
Frazier and Vivian Holman are Mount Vernon's entries. Taking two
hurdles in one mighty leap Vivian wins. Brick receives a silver mous-
tache cup for his gracefulness in knocking down the hurdles.
SCENE 4-fSet off grand standj. Crowd is in tumult of excite-
ment. Frequently above the din can be heard Marcella Crabtree's
shrill treble "Peanut butter sandwiches and buttermilk!', Miss Farrar
is vainly struggling to supply the thirsty crowd with a superior con-
coction invented by Rufus Kamb. This will bring Rufus millions, for
it is not only a spicy drink but excellent for salad dressing, rheumatic
oil, shoe polish and hair restorer.
SCENE 5-fSnappy Fade-inj. Now comes the thrilling climax
of the day-the foot ball game: The Mount Vernon champs, the
Handsome Huskies, led by that intrepid player, Kelly Dowd vs. the
notorious WCTU team, the Elite Eleven, captained by none other than
that famous player Gaylord Bell. Here come the Handsome
prancing out upon the field, those splendid specimens of
manhood: Jimmie Gilmore, Phil Wagner, Raymond N
Dowd, Teddy Hildebrand, Arthur Johnson, Edgar Youngquist
Anderson, Joe Goodman and Heston Weyrich. But Where is
96 SKAGINA 1929
the back bone of the team? Alas, the hero and star, Kenneth Musser,
is nowhere to be seen! 'tWhat shall we do?" shrills Kelly wildly, "Who
will tell us which way to run? We've looked in every locker and under
every bench but he isn't heref, Volunteers are called to fill the missing
Kenny's place, and Lasse Stohl is the man for the office.
While the Handsome Huskies are strengthening themselves on "Babe
Ruthsn, Gaylord Bell begs his team to run around the track a few times
to limber up.
SCENE 6--CSlow fade in, showing football fieldb. The men are
poised upon the line. The crowd is waiting in breathless suspense. The
whistle is blown and the game starts. A cloud of dust completely en-
velops the players. The first glimpse of the game shows Hildebrand
dashing thru the line and making for a touch down. The grandstand
fairly shakes. The shrieks are deafening. Teddy is gaining in great
leaps and bounds when he makes the terriic discovery that he is running
for the wrong goal! He is so unnerved that he drops the ball and the
Elite Eleven make an easy touchdown.
End of the first quarter. Jack Duncan rushes out to revive the
swooning players with popcorn, peanuts and pop, while Ethel Stevenson,
Elsie Yaeger "do their bit" by turning cartwheels for the crowds.
SCENE 7-fSecond quarter, same scenesj. Hurrah! Kelly Dowd
gallops home with a touchdown for the Handsome Huskies and the
score is evened. The opponents will not be downed. The Handsome
Huskies are weakening. The crowds are perfectly wild. Miss Curtis
is seen perilously balancing herself on the edge of the grandstand, wav-
ing her red tam while her skirt billows in the breeze. "Mac" is forced
to use violence to dampen Mr. McNamara's enthusiasm. End of first half.
Suddenly intense quiet reigns in the grandstand. News has been
heard of Kenny Musser. A moment before Sanford Payne, official run-
ner between Milltown and Mount Vernon, had come reeling up to Mr.
ff leeyes. Before he swooned of exhaustion, Tiny manages to pull this
Zi his pocket:

nets., Oh, Mr. Reeves, if you love me still, send help. Save the
honor of the school."
Mr. Reeves turns away with a dampness in his eye and murmurs
huskily, "Bless the dear faculty for sponsoring the children in writing
notes." But how to rescue Kenny! Excitement, tumult reigns, sugges-
tions are made, rejected, then out steps brave Miss Morris crying, "Let
me go, I'll take Galloping Gladys and fly o'er hill and dalef'
"Oh, Clydene, for this you will Win world wide fame. Choose the
most trustworthy men among us as body guards, and fly. Then up
spoke Mr. Windus in firm but gentle tones. "I will go with youf'
"Who else, who else!" shouts Mr. Reeves. A murmur arises-
Camilla Eliason steps forth from the ranks. UI, too," says Chapman
Moore, not wanting to be left without Camilla. "And you shall chap-
erone," Reeves speaks determinedly to Marjorie Ricker.
Off, the dauntless five start. In less than seven minutes, Gallop-
ing Gladys, the Bulldog's trusty coach is snorting and ready for the
journey. In another three minutes the brave five are seated comfortab-
ly, Miss Morris at the wheel with Mr. Windus by her side. In the rear,
Camilla and Marjorie sit, with Chapman between them. A dainty
picnic lunch on his lap. A cheer from the crowd, they are off. With
a roar, Gladys leaps down the street. Faster and faster flies this crazy
craft, even the impeccible Windus gasps as the speedometer reaches 14
miles an hour. These gritty five are surely the ones to save the day for
SCENE 8-CSame setsj. New hope! Gladsome cheers!! Like
new men the Huskies come trotting into the field determined to hold
that line till Kenny arrives. Three minutes-five minutes, will help
never come? The eyes of the tense crowd are glued on the mighty
teams. Then-what is that manly form in a quaintly green and orange
bathing suit, that is tearing into the thick of the melee? Can it be the
hero? Before anyone has time to even guess, he has snatched the ball,
broken from the ranks and galloped easily across the line for a touch-
down. Just as the whistle blows. The day is won!
"My hero," shrieks a feminine voice. Grayce Clark leaps off the
grandstand and throws her arms around the proud hero's neck.4fm7N
Kenny replies, "All for Mount Vernon and for youf'
