Getting along tine. They are the best the Seniors have known in a long time. They are all here tor business, and each tends strictly to his or her cwn business, when not tending to that of someone else. It might be hard for one not acquainted with our faculty to learn much about them through this writeup, on account of it ' s not being entirely authentic. But, however. I might say of our super- intendent that he is just like some little " kid, " although dressed in man ' s clothes, coming to school with his pockets full of peanuts and candy. Always sharing with those poor needy ones who come to the office. He is a very busy man, but always has time to talk (his main occupation). He is always equal to the situation, and in general quite clever. If you need any help or information, ask him. He is our walking newspaper, encyclopedia, calendar, dictionary, and in general an informa- tion buieau. He luiows most everything. Handy? He certainly is. He saves us lots of time in searching for things we don ' t know. He is the leader and " stand by " of the Senior class, and he tries to see to it that they know all be knows before xhey graduate. What is his name? Mr. W. W. Curfman. Physics? Oh, yes, Mr. J. A. Glover teaches that. He is our principal. He also teaches some of the minor classes, such as Freshman algebra. Where does he get his world of knowledge? Oh, I suppose from the same place the other teachers get theirs, " THE ALMANAC. " Is he helpful? Yes, indeed, we couldn ' t get along without him. Athletics? Yes, that is where he shines, " and also with the Junior girls. " He is our football coach. Yes, Miss Ruth Meeker teaches English. Faithful? Well. I guess. She is doing her very best to impart her knowledge to us. German is also one of her specialities. She is especially helpful to the Freshmen, those poor downtrodden creatures. She takes pity on them and helps them over any of their troubles or difficulties. Strict? Yes, that is Miss Edith Campbell. Maybe some of you knew it before, but she is just as jolly as can be (outside of school hours). She has been here two years, and the pupils have learned to toe the mark in her classes. Helpful? She certainly is. She will do most anything for you except tell you the examination questions. She is a product of M. H. S. and we are proud of her. She teaches mathe- matics and history. More? Yes, just one, last, but not least. Did you know she was making some good cooks? Yes, she teaches domestic science. I expect she will get me for telling you this, but if you don ' t know it, you will soon find out that " strict " is her middle name. She ' s got ' em all beat. The high school orchestra would suffer without her helpful guidance. Our faculty is the pride of our school. We wish to thank the school board for using such good judgment in selecting our faculty. We wish them all success in the future and a position in M. H. S. next year. Ruby Canaday — " Ask Cecil.

Four short years have iln spenl within her borders — years of mingled toil and pleas- ure, preparing for a future life of usefulness. Their tho ' ts, no doubt, are regre - centering about friends and classmates so closely associated with the near past — so soon to be widely separated. Very little thot, if any, do they give to the Alumni family into which they have just entered, ' out at some future day they will awaken and feel with pride and realization that they aie sons and daughters of the Mulvane j high school. Every year brings a welcome increase in our membership and to this class of 1!U7. lb. Alumni Association extends hearty greetings and welcome. It is our wish that the dreams and hopes which have come to them in the happy years of preparation just past, shall, in this commencement of their life in a bioader realm, prove an inspiration that shall grow stronger and better with each passing year. That you may know just who you are, as a member of the Alumni Association. ;. few words as to its history and purpose will be in older: From the time of the graduation of the first class of six graduates in 1889, until the present time with a total of neatly two hundred and forty members, the spirit of sociability has been fos- tered and developed into the form of an organization. The officers are elected annually and consist of president, vice president, secretary and treasurer. Regular clues are not collected and unless you attend the annual banquet, there are no expenses to meet. The reception and banquet given at commencement time each spring is per- haps the most enjoyable affair. The preceding year ' s graduating class has charge of the program and here it is that the timid young graduates are bro ' t before the Alumni and subjected to the most trying and severe initiation ceremonies. If they withstand ihese bravely, they are invited to the banquet ball where a program, consisting of class histories by representatives of each class, letters from absent members and something to eat besides " toasts " are given. This may not seem to be a proper time and place to drop a just criticism, never- theless, it is a rather noticeable fact that as an association, we are not well enough. united with, and supported by, a good many of our members. Resident Alumni mem- bers are usually present and the Mulvane high school has no more active and help- ful friends than seme of the Alumni. Yet it has not done as much as it might do as an association in promoting the interests of the school, were it a more avtivo and attended organization. What a splendid thing it would be if at least a majority of its more than two bundled members took an active part. The Mulvane High School Alumni Association stands for a greater influence in the promotion of educational spirit and resented by people in all walks of life. As a school is necessarily judged by its graduates, we as individuals, are representing our high school creditably or not, in many parts of our great nation. Now, as wo pause reminiscently and look back on the members of the vaiiotts graduated classes, we cannot but feel that our Alma Water is fulfilling her mission most nobly in making the world better. —LOUISE BLAIR.

Our idea of high school was. thai it was. a place when we could do anything we pleased, anywhere we pleased and nobodj would object. It represented freedom npared with the grades. As soon as our careers as Freshmen were started, we began to realize our situation, and set aboul al once to carrj out our idea of high school life. In our teacher ' s estimation there never was and never could be another (lass as bad as we were. The signs of a Freshman having been in any room were some thing [ike the effects left by a cyclone passing through. Of course we were the brightest and healthiest bunch of Freshmen thai ever entered M. H. S. We were noted for our athletic ability. We had a basketball team to be proud of, on account of their victories over I ' dall and also a close game with Derby ' s firsl team. Basketball wasn ' t our only achievement. We had three members on the regular track team, one of which broki the county record in his event and carried home one of the gold medals. The final examinations found us all prepared, and we ended our first year with many new ideas and achievements. The fall of 1914 found us in the Sophomore class, under a new faculty. Nev arrangements had been made, and we tried to settle down a little, but before the school year was half over some vandal had to spoil the reputation we had made with our new teachers, by painting " Sophs. 17 " on the assembly doors. A little later, on hallowe ' en night a cow found hei wa. into the school house. Our class was well repre- sented in the office the next week when the judgment day came. We tried to he good al year, hut from all appearances we failed. At this time we began to have various ocial ' Vents between the Sophs and the Freshies, which seemed to hind those classes closer together socially. Athletics was not slighted in the least this year. We won first place in the inter-class track meet, and also carried home our share of medals 1 1 din t he county meet. The Junior year found us in still another arrangement. This year we began to study in earnest, hut it did no good. We were shown by figures that we were the dumbest (lass in school. We were below the average, and It seemed that the harder studied the worse we became. However we held our own in athletics. Out of the fourteen sweaters given to football players, seven were claimed by Juniors. A Junior was also captain of the football team. We again won the inter-class track meet. The night after the track meet we gathered at Canaday ' s house and made up some yells. Some members of the Sophomore class stole them, and gave them to the Seniors to yell in chapel, because they didn ' t have the nerve or backbone to do it themselves. This year we carried heme two gold medals and others too numerous to mention, from various meets. We were the only class in high school that possessed gold medals. This, our Senior year is the most exciting and prosperous that we have had yet. We started in with a rush and intend to keep it up the entire Mar. We have attempted and carried oul more things than any other Senior class in the history of the school. ave put on a class play, and are publishing the fiist M. 11. S. Annual. Athletics was nol neglected this year. We started seven men on the regular football team, but on account of the injuries and moving and various other causes we were not able to finish the season with more than four, which was as many as any other class had. .Miss Campbell- " You ik i I laugh at. such foolish things.

We also leave them the places on the debate team which are left vacant We hope they will uphold the honor we have striven so hard to gel and thai i hey will forgel their class prejudice. To the Sophomores, we leave our honors which we so faithfully won on both the track and football field. Thai they may follow in our footsteps in o much as to have a majority of the men on the football team, and being able to win the inter-class track meets. Also to Lelia English we wish to leave our common sense, and hope she will profit by it. To the Freshman class we leave the prescription for getting rid of hash- fulness and greenness. The Senior hoys also leave the freshman boys all the old pipes which they wore out in the course of their high school career. But we sincerely hope that they will not find any use for them. To the ne i year ' s Annual staff we leave our snug little room down under the basement stairs, with expectation thai they will not misuse il any more than we did. To the Faculty, who labored so faithfully with us through our senior year we leave our thanks and the satisfaction of knowing thai they had the opportunity of teaching some of the greatesl men of tomorrow. To the Janitor we leave the scraps of paper this annual was written on. And the honor and special privilege of cleaning up the Annual room after v e have vacated it.

As il was located on paved mads between two large cities business soon began to flourish. Mad it doI been for the recenl death of my husband I would have been very happy. One afternoon a large automobile stopped In front of the house, a man and woman stepped out and came up the walk. There was something strangely familiar about the man ' s face, DUl I couldn ' t think what it was. I opened the door for them and before I could say anything the gentleman spoke. called me bj my name and was shaking hands vigorously. " Jerry, " I gasped, for 1 instantly recognized that voire. His hair was quite gray, which somewhat changed his appearance, but his voice was just as pleasant as it was when we were class-mates at Mulvane High. lie introduced me to his wife, who was an actress in an opera. Jerry was a very i anions actor and was playing opposite his wife. " Do you know where Paul is? " I asked, " I haven ' t seen or heard of him since he was divorced from Doris Richardson. " " He ' s a pharmacist in some flourishing town in western Kansas. 1 ran across him a few months ago when my train was delayed there several hours. He also dees some cartoon work on the side. I couldn ' t help asking bim if he was married, and was certainly surprised to hear that he was not. The divorce accounted for it. " " Why don ' t you tell her about the lady you found in the hospital, " asked his wife. " O. yes. ' ' continued Jerry. " 1 must not forget that. Three months ago I was operated on for appendicitis which seems as popular as it used to be. Imagine my sur- l rise when 1 discovered that my nurse was Dean Xelson. I never would have known her l»ut she recognized me and told me who she was. Say you never would know that girl, she is so thin. 1 don ' t believe that she weighs a bit more than one hundred and fifty pounds. It was through her that I learned of Rolland. I never was so sur- prised in my life did you know that he is a missionary in Africa? I don ' t know how- it happened but Dean said he was disappointed in love. Do you know what became of Doris and Ruby? " " Yes, " I replied. " Ruby is happy, married to a wealthy lawyer. I gol a letter from her the other day. She has thirteen children and seems to be liv- ing the kind of life she always wanted to. Doris has several letters tacked to her panic, and is a professor in the University of Colorado. But where is Floyd? I left immediately after we graduated and haven ' t heard from him since. " " He married Gertrude that summer and they are living on a large fruit farm in Arkansas. " " Well, that isn ' t quite so surprising, but have you heard what a famous politician Dewey bet ame? " " No I haven ' t. " said Jerry. " Tell me about him. " " Well I am taking the Wichita Beacon, and it has been praising him highly. I guess he is about the most popular senator Kansas has had for some time. He secured a position for Karl Kimble as postmaster in some large Kansas town. Neither of these hoys is married yet and they say that Kail is likely to be a confirmed oh ' bachelor, but it is rumored that Dewej is to be married soon. " We continued this pleasant chat for some time, but as Jerry had to return for the show that uight they did not stay as long as they otherwise would have. I was certainly glad for his visit. It had given me many things to think about. Sonic of the class had turned out entirely different than I expected, but each member Of the class ' 17. I was glad to know, were doing w-ell in the world.

These nineteen students who have survived out of the thirty-five are a happj and industrous lot, always striving to do their best, and attaining fame and honor for their dear old J I. H. S. As a class we have progressed rapidly along all lines. Not only in our studies but in athletics and public speaking ability as well. Our foot hall manager last fall was a Junior. Our athletic manager is a Junior. We have been strong in our inter-class track meets, although not first, but we are hoping to make a good showing this spring. Five of our members were on the football team. The II. S. orator and reader are members of the Junior class, and we are sure that their achievements will be a credit to their class as well a.s to their school. Taken as a whole, our past history has been of remarkable character and something of which to be proud and next year with the aid of more experience and age we are expecting to make a record which will not easily be surpassed. We have the material for such, and time will show the ability and achievements of the class of ' 18.

We have found that the duties of Sophomores are much larger and more numerous than those of Freshmen. However, our capabilities, like our duties have increased with time. During our Freshman year we more than held our own with the other classes. Leo Johnston, one of our members won first place in the oratorical contest and our hoys won second place in athletics. This year several of our members have distinction in different ways. Doris Thompson and Chris- tine Wright have splendid voices. Leota Seekamp has had success as a reader. Four Sophomore hoys, Waldo Lindsay, Harold Albright, Paul (Juinn and Howard Sealock were football players. Waldo Lindsay was captain of the team. Although we furnish the teachers with splendid thinking material, the ►Sophomore class is not very popular with the teachers. We are quite cer- tain that if present conditions continue, all of the teachers of the Sophomore classes will start life anew and take up the occupation of lecturing. How- ever that may he, we would rather pay admission to lectures than « ' et them free of ehai ge. Kut let us look forward to, and plan for future days instead of looking back and speculating on what is already done.

We arc few in number and have had but little experience in M. H. S., but the class of ' 20 will make its mark. We are not unusually brilliant stu- dents though we manage to get our grades; we have not made wonderful records in athletics; but where we shine is in school pranks and practical joking in general. The Freshmen now are terribly abused by both upper classmen and faculty, but when Ave are Sophomores, Juniors and even Seniors, we ex- pect to remember that we were once Freshmen. In future years when you see familiar names in the text books, remember that there was a clever class of Freshmen once in the history of the school. When you read in the newspapers of the great men and women of the day. you must think of the old saying, that appearances are sometimes deceitful as you never expected anything like that of the closs of " 20. Also, when you speak of the president of the United Slates, you must not appear too familial ' with him as you did not appreciate him when he was a Freshman in high school. You might just as well admit now as later that the Freshmen are a pretty nice little bunch and that you arc proud of them.

NINETEEN fllW»i n«» svit ?Al»ii»l MULVANE SEVENTEEN WtcUUJC M0 UUclCk HIGH SCHOOL Mxxsit A better opportunity for the study of music in our high school was provided for this year, by the skillful advice of Mr. Curfman. He arranged for a period to devoir to music, the same as our other subjects, by shifting periods, and beginning school at an earlier hour, thus making five periods in the morning. This extra period was used for the study of music, both for chorus and orchestra work, which took three days in the week, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. A chorus of forty members was immediately organized with Mr. Curfman as di- rector, and a study of good, classical chorus numbers was begun. The Victrola was used several times and much was gained from it by hearing the songs played before trying to sing them. An orchestra of fourteen members was also organized with Miss Blair, music teacher of the grades, as their director. Some of the numbers they used are, " Bitter Sweet, " " On the Wing, " and " First Love. " Both organizations furnished opportunities for students who knew practically noth- ing about music, to begin such study, and also opportunities for those who were more advanced, to be helped by the practice. The music department gave one program during the year, on March 9th. The chorus sang " Bridal Chorus, " from the " Rose Maiden, ' and " Italia Italia Beloved. " They also gave the musical farce, " Mr. Mikado. " The orchestra furnished several good numbers, among which were, " Mason ' s Grand March, " " Shadows, " " O, Belle Nuit, " from " Tales from Hoffman, " " Apple Blossoms " and " Twinkling Stars. " The vocal music up until spring, was devoted entirely to chorus work and glee club work was not done at all. This accounts for our not learning a greater number of songs, but it was thought best to give everybody a chance instead of forming a glee club and doing more individual work. However, in the Mikado, there was a chance for some solo work. The plans for the spring work were to do more glee club work, such as mixed quartets, duets and solo work. The appreciation of the numbers sang by ihe chorus and by the talent in the play, were shown by the applause from the crowd at the Mikado. As a result of the time and efforts put forth by the members of the chorus during the year, they feel that they have been greatly benefited. They consider this success due to their faithful and able director .Mr. Curfman. Let me go where ' er I will, I hear a sky-born music still; It sounds from all things old. It sounds from all things young, From all that ' s fair, from all that ' s foul, Peals out a cheerful song. It is not only in the rose, It is not only in the bird, Not only where the rainbow slows. Nor in the song of woman heard. But in the darkest, meanest things There always, always something sings. ' Tis not in the high stars alone, Nor in the cup of budding flowers, Nor in the redbreast ' s mellow tone, Nor in the bow that smiles in showers, But in the mud and scum of things There always, always something sings.

There were only about five members who had ever had any experience with playing their instruments, and it took considerable time and persuasion on the pari of Miss Blair to induce new members to purchase new instruments, take individual lessons and join the orchestra work. When it was ar- ranged to give a short period each week during school time to practice, the interest increased and work progressed nicely. Mr. Hull, of the Metropolitan School of Music, of Wichita, was secured to give private lessons to some of the beginners. this organization was not financially aided by any school district funds or out- bid ' help, it is to tie complim ented that it mel all of its own expenses and accomplished so much. Money which wi lei from last year ' s operetta fund was used to purchase a snare drum, music and other equipment, while the orchestra expects to soon have funds to purchas and trap drum fixtures. The frist attempts a1 public playing were not exactly like the finished product, hut later appearances i tin- orch ve shown marked improvement. Some of ' he entertainments in which it took part this year were, " Fads and Fancies, " the min- strel given by the baseball boys, the Senior class play, the Mikado, the spring millinery openin, beside playing .it the chapel and church services. Th( lire now includes about twentj selections. The members will continue their practice and hope tor a better and bigger ear in 1917 and 1918. The success and progress of the orchestra is due largely to the efforts and faithfulness of their able di- rector. Miss Louise Blair. Leo Johnston — " Heads or Tails?

The following members of the high school were elected to serve as die ers of the organization: Rolland Johns, president; Cecil Bidwell, vice president; Vera Riggs, treasurer; Juanita Nelson, secretary. These members me1 i tediately and drew up a constitution, stating the purpose of the organization and the laws thai were to govern them. The following chapel morning this constitution was read to the studenl body by the secretary, and accepted by the organization. Beside these officers a council consisting of two members from each class were elected and a faculty member to be presenl at cadi busi- ness meeting. This council recommended action governing the activities of the school and the different problems which came up during the year. Greal progress was made in oratory work, through Miss -Campbell ' s faith- fulness and help and we had several good orators, as was proven in the local contest. Reading was also developed to some extent, although this work was more individual than class work. A debating team was organized, and preparations were being made for a debate in April with one of the surrounding towns. The debators elected ii the association wvve : Doris Riggs, Rolland Johns, and Leo Johnston. Several of the members who had the misfortune of being absent on ac- count oi sickness during the year, were remembered by letters, and other ; s from the studenl body. The funds taken in from the musical comedy, Mr. .Mikado, were turned over to the student body organization and were used by them to pay some of the debits of the high school and carry on some of the different activities. Another means used to raise more money was a pie-supper, held in the city hall. A large crowd was presenl and besides having a good time a large sum of money was taken in. Tl i students feel that this organization accomplished a great deal this Mar. It lias been a greal benefit to the students in teaching them how io handle some of the school problems. They hope that the school will take up tins method of letting the students take a pari in the governing of the • ' acl ivil ies another year. Paul Payne — " Get out ay.

On account of some of the numbers given it has been the opinion of many that Mulvane High School is not behind in literarj work. The work of the society can hardly he estimated. Every student had part in this work. It gave him training that could not have been obtained elsewhere, and that will always be of benefit to him.

This is the firsl time in the history of this school that literary work has been carried on in this manner. The method used has been successful and great interest has been manifested by both sides. The Athenian Society entered their work with a determination to accomplish many things. The purpose of the society was. that helpful training might be given in ora- tory, declamation and music that would develop the students of Mulvane High and make them more accustomed to appearing in public. The society was divided into three divisions. There was one member of a pro- gram committee over each division. This enabled the students to appear in some lit- erarj activity at least six times during the year. Programs were given one week by the Athenian Society and the next week by the Delta Beta. The programs were always held at the school house and visitors were frequent . The belief ii and enjoyment derived from this work can hardly be estimated. With Mr. Clover and Miss Campbell as faculty members of the society, the Athenians have accomplished work thai will help them to make a better success in later life. The Athenian Societj has raised the standard of entertainmmenl in the school and given eacch person practical training along life ' s activities.

Many class debates have been held. Beside this work several other interesting debates have been held. One debate took place on Friday morning, between the Athenian and Delta Beta Literary Societies. Three members were elected to represent each society. Rolland Johns, Doris Riga ' s, and Waldo Lindsey represented the Athenians, and Lilyan Dickinson, Russell Throckmorton, and Leo Johnston represented the Delta Beta Society. The question was " Resolved, That the Phillipines should be given their immediate independence. " The Delta Beta ' s defended the affirmative and the Athenians the negative. The judges gave a unanamious vote in favor of the negative. The whole school elected debaters to represent them in the inter-school debate. Rolland .Johns, Doris Riggs, and Leo Johnston were chosen. Challenges were .sent to various schools for a debate. Derby accepted, and gave us the question: " Resolved, That every able-bodied male citizen of the United States should have at least one year of military training be- fore he attains the age of twenty-five. Mulvane took the affirmative. The debate was held April 24 at Mulvane. A large crowd attended and greal enthusiasm was shown. Mulvane won by a unanimous decision. Merle Arnold- - " (Hi Bugs.

In the meantime Mills has advertised for hoarders and bas beard from an old Ger- man, Mr. Bower, who is to arrive that day. Mr. Maitland, their other boarder, is a pooi- author, and is in love with Dorothy Crane, bis uncle ' s daughter. Mollie, the servanl girl, has neglected to deliver to Arthur Maitland a letter from the unch ' in Europe, stating that he, his secretary, and his daughter, are coming to ica. On account of the delay of the letter ' lie party has arrived and no one is at the pier in meel them. In the meantime interesting things are going on at the Browns. Arthur ha d the fact that, he in destitute circumstances, wrote and told his uncle that he was married, for the sake of more money. So the uncle is here and Arthur has no wife to present. Harry, however, comes to his rescue and lends his wife and house. Mrs. Sheffield and Mr. Bauer, who is really a detective , have arrived and things begin in earnest. Colonel Grane insists on naming the child Thaddeus. when it is really a girl. Finally this difficulty was overcome by arranging for a secret christen- ing. Now that thej an ' together Arthur renews bis courtship with his old sweetheart, Dorothy, forgetting that he has told them that is already married. The Colonel over- hears Harry and Milly Brown discussing affairs, and believes Arthur ' s wife to be un- ■ I him. At last Arthur explains things to Dorothy and they are secretly married. Milly becomes desperate with two husbands. Harry regains his wife. The Colonel es reconciled, the villain is captured and the play ends happily. The Brown ' s I was a greal success. The crowd was very lrage and seemed to appreciate the Seniors ' efforts and uiienis. The success of the play was due to the patience and dilligence of Mr. Curfman, who was the director.

MikaU " .March 7, 1917, at the Lindel Theatre the Mikado, a burlesque on the comic opera, Mr. Mikado was given by the high school chorus. Several other selections were given in connection with it. The orchestra played several numbers, Mr. Curfman sang a solo and the chorus sang, " The Bridal Chorus " and " Italia. " The operetta was coached by the chorus director, Mr. Curfman. On account of stage room only twenty-seven of the chorus took part; seven of whom were principal characters and the rest chorus members. The Mikado offered an opportunity for students who could take solo parts as well as for chorus work. The scene of the play was in Japan. The woodland scenes with its streams, trees, Japanese fans, parasols and lanterns made it seem as though America had disappeared and the land of cherry blossoms was a reality. The characters were dressed according to the fashion of Japanese gentlemen and ladies. Kimonos, fans, parasols, plenty of red and black paint were used to a good advantage. With the scenery, the characters and the colored lights the whole play had a very fitting Oriental setting. Doris Thompson was Yum Yum, Christine Wright was Pitti-sing and Cliffe Row- land as Piek-Boo, were certainly charming playing the role of the three maids from school. The whole play ecntered around these three coquettes. The Lord High Execu- tioner, Russell Throckmorton, is in love with Yum Yum, and intends to marry her. However, while Yum Yum was at the boarding school she met Nanki-Poo, Cleel McBee, a traveling minstrel, who falls in love with her. So Nanki-Poo goes to Yum Yum ' s guardian, the Lord High Executioner, and tells him of his affections for the giddy school girl. At first the Lord High Executioner would not hear of Yum Yum marry- ing Nanki for he himself wanted her. But owing to several complications Yum Yum finally marries Nanki and the Lord High Executioner marries the old hot time beauty, Katisha. She, Lylyan Dickinson, was the star of the evening and furnished entertain- ment for everybody. Cecil Bidwell played the part of the Mikado. Other characters were Pish Tush, Albert Harvey: Poo-Bah, Clyde Baughman; and Lea Box, Waldo Lindsey. The entire program was a success and was enjoyed by all.

Miss Edith Campbell, oi the State Normal School of Emporia was the instructor and as that work is her hobbj she proved to be .1 verj el ficienl tea h r. Thei e v ere seventeen in the class and just enough to make things taining and interesting. Many lines of work were taken up during the year. The first phase considered was the extemporaneous speaking from notes on manj subjects, especiallj topics of the day. Con- siderable time was spenl on this and then im promptu speaking was taken up. Little time was put in on this. The voice work was also iidered in which training was given as to correct pronunciation and inflection. In fact, some learned how to talk so that others mighi understand their meaning. The two big things undertaken were the two lane banquets and the orations. The banquet was supposed to be between the Juniors and Seniors of " 17, in some future year. There was a tcast master and a repre- sentative ol everj Senior in M. H. S. that was supposed to have graduated in 1917. Toasts were given, after dinner speeches, and other types of talks characteristic of Ihe occasion. The only drawback was the lack of refreshments. Everyone in the class wrote an oration. An outline was first completed and then the titst copy was made. Miss Campbell then suggested changes and a second copy was made. Then it was memorized and as a final effort delivered for the benefit of their fellow classmate-. The class worked long and hard, and their efforts were not in vain for all of their orations were excellent. The good deiived from this class can hardly be estimated. The school is very proud of the beginning that has been made along these lines, and great hopes for the Publii Speaking work in the future. Most of the foregoing work mentioned has been class work and (lass affairs. Though ! timi s 1 hapel has b en livened up by a paper, oration, or sp ech from students from that department. Miss Lucille Howard gave an excellent spee h on Helen Keller. Karl Kimble favored the student body by reading Rolland Johns ' oration entitled " Education and Citizenship.

But now we, that same green bunch have been engaged in a great undertaking to see whether the first Annual, our 1917 Annual, so planned for, and so longed for, could be anything out a success. We have put forth our very best efforts in this history of the Battles of the Students of Mulvane High School. We have come to that place where we must dedicate a portion of our time as final efforts for those remembrances of the past four years, that the memories of Mulvane High School might live. It is altogether proper that we should do this. But in truth we have not worked alone, we did not do it all, we did not sacrifice all of our good times. Our dear classmates, busy and idle Juniors, Sophs., and Fresh- men had it in their power and did help us far more than we, the Seniors, could pos- sibly portray or picture. The world will little praise what they did in behalf of cur Annual, hut the class of 1917 can never forget their services.

Perhaps they have this year, but we have not heard of it, and we have done some inquiring. From what Ave know and have heard we think they have acted wisely, carefully and progressively. It was largely due to their efforts that the country scholars were allowed to attend. This is the first year that each grade has had a teacher. Considerable apparatus lias been added to the laboratory this year, the best part being i stereopticon lantern and a set of 300 slides which can he used in all grades and high school. The hoard has allowed progressive steps in administration and man- agement. Our superintendent nor teachers hands have not been tied, yet they have been helped and guided. The board has been firm in essential matters, have considered carefully every step taken, and have done as well possible, all duties devolving upon them.

" nineteen flftrsmrt smh T tark MULVANE SEVENTEEN WXMlXtZ allU ItUclCK HIGH SCHOOL J easmt ' s JFootball (Rames After about three weeks of hard training and practice, under the supervision of Coach Glover, we launched out u on the football season in good shape expecting to capture everything. Had we not lost two of our best players after the first games, our hopes would surely have been realized. But considering that some of the members of the team moved away and some dropped out on account of injuries, we believe that we finished a very successful season. Our first game was played on the Mulvane gridiron, September 29, with Viola. We had the honor of winning this first game by a score of 13 to 0. Clean sportsman- ship prevailed throughout the game with no foul playing attempted on either side. Kimble and Carroll did the star playing for Mulvane. Our touch downs came in the second and third quarters. Our second game was with Augusta on the 6th of October. We were not quite so confident about winning this game after we saw the big huskies they brought with them. But experience and teamwork counted and we again carried off the large end of the score, which stood 23 — at the end of the game. The result was no more than could be expected since this was the first game Augusta had ever played. Epper- son did the star work for Augusta. Lindsey, Eck and Payne did excellent work for Mulvane. We received our " Titanic " at the hands of Viola in the third game of the season. We went to Viola October 20, expecting to carry home another victory, but the out- come did not meet our expectations. At the end of the game the score stood 55 — in favor of Viola. Kimble and Lindsey were out of the game on account of injuries received a few nights previous in practice. Viola repeatedly and successfully worked the forward pass for long gains and touchdowns. We were unable to handle this form of playing. Ferguson was knocked out in the first half. We received our second defeat of the season at Augusta on the 27th of October. This was our fourth game. Augusta had improved greatly over her last game. They outweighed our men. This was a clean game with no roughness on either side. Eck did the star work for Mulvane, making the only touchdown. The final score was 12—7. The fifth game of the season was played on the home gridiron with Conway Springs on the 3rd of November. We were again defeated by the score of 14 — 7. This game was especially marked as being the cleanest game of the season. Their men outweighed ours, they worked heavy line plunges for good gains. Mulvane made her only touchdown on her famous fake play, around end. All of the boys played a good game. The attendance at this game was very small. The sixth game of the season was played at Clearwater the 11th of November. This was one game above all that we wanted to win. Everybody was full of pep. This was the closest game of the season, neither team was able to make much pro- gress. Mulvane ' s score came by Clearwater punting, Throckmorton fumbling the ball out to one side, Eck picking it up and carrying it 65 yards for a touchdown, Johns furnishing some excellent interference. Clearwater made her touchdown from a fumble, and finished to kick goal. Mulvane kicked goal. It was anybody ' s game from start to finish. The boys all came home happy that night, since this was the first time Mulvane ever beat Clearwater. The seventh and last game was played on the Mulvane gridiron. Clearwater came over expecting to get revenge for the defeat a week before. We were determind to whip them twice this year. This was considered the best game ever played on the Mul- vane gridiron. The final score was 9 — 6 in our favor. The home team was in fine shape and put up a good game. No long gains were made. Lindsey did good work, especially in kicking a dropkick, which won the game. Robert Martin — " I sure am sleepy, I haven ' t been out but thirteen nigtits titis week. " Page 55 ML ' LVANE HIGH SCHOOL (Dnuw mth HUack NINETEEN SEVENTEEN Ixack The track team of ' 17 is a thing of the future, so we can only prophecy ,-is in how successful they may be. Already the different events are show- ing up good. Last year we tools second place in the county track meet, and we expect to do better this year, because we losl but few of our men, and have better ones to lake their places. Sealock made a good reeord on the half and mile last year, and we expect him to capture several first places this year. Others are also doing good on these races. Lindsey vaulted in feet, :! inches, last year and has a good start for a higher record this year. We also expect to see Kimble, -Jerry, and Clyde Payne carry home some medals and honors. April (i. ' 17, the M. 11. S. will hold an individual track meet. A class iiieei will be held April 13, ' 17. The county track meet will be held at Belle Plaine, April 27, ' 17.
