FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
What I Really Know
If you were to ask me what I know in such a way that I have
absolutely no doubt about it, and in such a way that I base my actions
upon that knowledge, I should say I know what I possess of eternity
and I know the secret of success. I possess the same part of eternity
that is yours. and the secret of success you already know.
A proper use of that part of eternity which we possess, the preSr
ent, will insure a successful life, which, after all, is but a succession of
successful days fllled With successful hours. Succeed today With your
present tasks; begin immediately to act upon your highest impulses;
live today with all of the power and joy of your soul, and your future
will be what you desire.
I know what I possess of eternity, and I know the secret of success
in such a way that I have absolutely no doubt about either. I am glad
to base my actions upon that knowledge and to pass that knowledge
on to you.

WThe most soughtlafter and the most elusive
boy in Bryan."
History of the Class of June, 1925
T WA 5 in 1921, just four years ago, that a group of about four hundred
1 students entered for the first time the portals of that old building which we
all learned to loveeBryan Street High School. Those boys and girls who
comprised that group did not seem unusual in their personal appearance. To the
Sophomores they were just another bunch of Hiish"; to the teachers they were just
another horde of rather bashful, awkward Children who had been sent to school
by their parents for the purpose of obtaining the groundwork of an education;
but to the Freshmen themselves, they were a courageous and invincible army,
eager and determined to establish their own position and rating.
Now as we pause for a short time on the eve of our departure from this school
which has been our guiding light, we are given to speculation and retrospection.
It has been only four years since we have entered this building, but those four
years have been so eventful that they seem almost an interminable age.
Our first two years of high school life were quiet, in the main, but they should
not be termed uneventful; they were rather the period of preparation for a greater
work which was to follow. During this period we grew to love and honor old
Bryan; we were made aware of the fact that we were no longer little children,
but were young men and young women, and the tasks assigned to us were larger
because of that development; we became acquainted with the rules and regula
tions of the school and learned that those who ran afoul of these laws were
deprived of their afternoons of joy and doomed to spend their time working long
During these two years and the ensuing years also several of our number,
because of lack of a solid foundation, or because of their failure to keep harnr
mering away at their studies, were lost. For these we are sorry; we regret to
see their vacant places in our ranks, for they were in most cases our friends. Our
message to them is this: i"Renew the fight; for the prize is worthy of the
There have also been several additions to our Class; some who have returned
to school after having been away for a year, or perhaps more, and some who
by their own efforts and determination have risen above their classes and joined
our own. Among the latter are Alan Reed and Louise Golson, both of whom
finish the required high school course in three years, and Alice Meredith, who has
made it in three and one'half years. Alan Reed incidentally has made an aver
age for his high school course of more than 98V2, which is the highest average
ever made by any student of this school,
While we were Juniors things began to happen: Lloyd Slaten was elected
business manager of the Dalhi Monthly. Harold Thompson, also a member of
our class, won the Shurter contest in oratory. James Krueger won the first prize
in a cityrwide poster contest during thrift weeku Several members of our class
began to shine in athletics about this time. Among these were: William Coit in
football, Floyd Wolldridge in track, and Luther Blasingame in baseball.
Then comes the grandest time of all ea our Senior year. That year is the
greatest year of our career, the year in which our being here reflects more glory
upon our school; Throughout this year our prowess has been extended to all
fields of activities. Our magazine, The Dalhi, under the leadership of Farina Belle
Robertson and Richard Coit, has been one of the most successful in many years.
Our Annual, thanks to Alan Reed and Lowell Hooker and their able staffs, is a
book of which we shall be proud in the years to come. The school debating teams
have been most successful this year. Harold Thompson and Wilton Maddox of
the boys team, and Zeda Minor of the girls3 team, are all Seniors. There have
also been several essay contests and other tests of academic skill in which the
Seniors have successfully competed.
Our social activities, including dances, plays and parties, have been the talk
of the season.
The class oflicers whom we elected while we were still Juniors have been most
faithful in the performance of all of their duties. They are:
LLOYD SLATEN .............................................. President
YATES MCGWIER ..................... ...VicerPresident
NEDRA NEWKIRK ........................................ Secretary
Having reviewed our activities, we wonder why this Class has been so 5110
cessfnl, but it is simple. All of our achievements, all of our glory, is possible only
because of the efforts of our teachers. When we were down'hearted, when we
were weak in body, when things went wrong, it was those teachers who are dear
in our hearts that stood by us and spurred us on To them we are everlastingly
indebted for our past triumphs, and even when we have passed forever from the
halls and rooms of old Bryan in which they stay, their memory and high ideals
will guide us on to even greater successes than we have yet achieved.
Class Prophecy, June, 192 5
Hear ye a prophecy of the June Class lL25",

Who gathers his flock once every week.
Nedra Newkirk, a hairdresser of highest renown,
Is the latest rage and talk of the town.
Alan Reed now carries of groceries a line

Julia Ella Owen has wed an oil king t

But Tolals supreme where e'er she may go.
Carl Moursund now drives his Packard Straight Eight
And makes the dust fly-gosh, who is his Kate?
Frances Fairls demure, nifty, and neat
And as a trained nurse, she cannot be beat.

On historyls page for the women he vamped.
In a dark convent cell, brokenrheal'tcd and pale,
Antoinette Smith languishes behind a drawn veil.
A mammoth White hat, a ranch, and a steedi
See Cowboy McGwier in a daredevil deed!
As a farmers gentle spouse, Maurine Forester does excel
For she feeds both her chickens and husband quite Well.
Robert Booth now flashes his bright auburn hair,
In front of the footlights and makes people stare.
She plays for a living in Cabarets Wild,
Louise Douglas, who once was a gentle, sweet child.

We knew held succeed, for he made a brave fight.
Mary Rothbaum with animals works wonders grand,
She's a veterinary now--the best in the land.
This is of "Bob", whose poems they say
Surpass Mr. Guests of an earlier day.
A sabled jewel vampire in Broadwayis bright glare,
Priscilla Robertsonis motto is, iiTo do and to dare."
With his olive profile E. Collins a success,
His hand organ and monkey are good, I confess.
And broadcasted by radio each night you may hear,
Mable Staffordis soprano ring out loud and clear.
Selling peanuts on the corner Dick IVey now stands,
Though he once had had girlies eat out of his hands.
In a northern lumber camp among the arctic snows,
Katherine Chase is seen rolling tempting doughnut doughs.
Among OrientIs fair faces, Lowell you may see,
Business manager for a harem in far away Turkey.

Praying poor souls into Heaven fromawell

In spectacles teaches with vigor and vim.
In a far away prison behind iron bars,
Pinched for speeding, Bill Coit does wail t0 the stars.
In Ziegfield's group of sweet girlies fair,
Zeda Minor is always sure to be there.
In the tenement slums of old New York,
Toward the worlds welfare does J.Har01d work.
Fanna Belle Robertson, in the years to come.
Has exemplified the motto, HA beauty, but dumb?"
Henry Lamaris a fine boy, most awfully jolly,
But regret we to say heis neier bossed by a dolly.
Many of you have heard of luminous Louise Clark,
Sheis one who in a iiLighting Contestii made a great mark.
Bill Shuttles now works in a dark and deep mine;
ITho he has no prestige his complexion is fine.
This is Dick Coit, an industrious man,
Who makes his money wherever he can.
In selling of DaihiIs H. F. had 21 strong line.
And in his worldly work heis doing quite fine.
In the orotorical line Wilton has won much fame,
Tho his ms: talks and orations were rather lame.
Thru all these years we watched Martin Pickett:
Heis made the goal thru every wicketi
Louise Golson now walks the streets with pride,
To maintain a good figuree-better walk than ride.
And now I seem to see dear old Gus,
As a hne young gentleman, not as a cuss.
A success in life has been made by George Pat,
Remember his smile as heId step up to bat?
This Prophecy was written by a girl called Nell,
Who wishes to you alL succesSeFarewell.
Be Steel true and blade straigth
Firmly stand; bear your own weight.
Heaven is high above your head,
Let the path of progress echo your tread.
Faithful always, always strong,
Hum to your heart a little song;
Though strong enemies lie in wait,
Pluck will help you smile at fate.
Stay on-go through,
rYouWe safe, if you,re true;
And when night comeso-sleep;
Success is yours to hold in keep.

History of the Class of January, 1926
iiKnowIedge is power." Of this truth we, the iiJanuary 26h class, became
enamored in our elementary school days. So we came to the best high school in
Dallas to conquer the everrexisting gods of English, Mathematics, Latin, and
Science. We, a small group of Freshmen, were awed and inspired by the grand
majesty of Bryan Street High School. The first thing to meet our view, when
we entered the door, was the noble array of statuary in the front halltthe busts
0f Roosevelt, Wilson, Washington, and Pershing, and many others, who gave
their life and efforts to make this country bigger, better, and cleaner. These
made us aspire to do bigger and better things for dear old Bryan. Our first year
was spent for the most part in becoming acquainted with our classmates, and
becoming adapted to our new surroundings.
Upon entering our Sophomore year, we began to carry out the resolves of our
Freshman year. Some sought honors 0n the athletic held to add to the ever!
increasing number of trophies, while upholding the time'honored traditions of
true and clean sports in our interscholastic contests. Others devoted their energy
to public speaking, and in a short time declaimers, debaters, and speakers were
developed. Still others strove to give their best through the clubs. They became
the leaders, and through their energy and perseverance raised the standard of the
school. Still others strove for higher standards of scholarship, knowing that it
is by scholarship that every school is judged.
Two years have passed. Years iilled with joy, sorrow, failures, and successes.
Not all who entered as the original class of Y6 are present. Some have fallen by
the wayside. Others have entered the business world. With renewed energy,
those left continued in our Junior year the tasks begun in previous years. We
became organized and gained strength in union. Although we are the smallest
class in the school, we have proved that it is quality, and not quantity, that counts
Now we have arrived. We are Seniors. The goal for which each has striven
is 110 more a hazy thing in the far distant future, but a living thing of the present.
We are on the top of the hill and can look downward on the path which we have
trodden to our present attainments; Its surface is not that of smooth glass; it is
beset with many stumbling blocks, over which we have safely passed with the aid
of our counsellors and guideseour teachers.
May the way that we have yet to travel be traversed with safety and honor.

A great honor has been bestowed on Louise Hooper, newly appointed Poet Laureate
of America; such an ofhce having been created by Paul Ramey, the President of the U. 8.,
when her first poem appeared in print. The Link School for girls rates high among the
colleges of the United States. Elizabeth rules all with an iron hand. Among her faculty
are Lucille Manning, Bertha Bush and Edith Angrist. Julia Pellet is residing in Paris,
France, where she is interpreter for our American Ambassador, O. R. Winter, who was
appointed by President Harry Reed. Harry was sworn into his office by Chief Justice of
Supreme Court Albert Edmonds. Preston Scott and Robert Fagg are partners in the junk
dealing business Flora Bell Gice and Helen Dorothy Winters are operating a very
popular candy and gift shop on Pacific Avenue.
This cross section of the famous Class of January, 1926, will reveal to the world that
"Allis Well" with the entire membership.

Prologue to the Fish Tales
tWith due apologies to ChauceU
By TOM SHAFFER
Whilom it bilel that a group of thre
Made up a merye compaignye;
'Twas in the spring'fevour sesoun,
And therefore without moche resoun,
We thre pleyed hokey fro scole that day,
And fer fro bokes we tonne aweye.
Now in few wordes wol I to yow telle
Of the adventures that us bifel.
The day was fresh and eek balmie,
As all bright springe dayes sholde be
But er we sterten we hade t0 waitte
Some wormes to digge to use as baitte.
Then gun we forth upon oure weye,
As the sonne peeped forth to breke the day.
And smale fowles alonge the weye,
Maad moche noise and melodye. .
Life seemed to come to everich treye,
And the grass was as grene as it could be;
Our weye was long, it semed to me,
Or longer than it oghte to be;
So we lagged along our tyme to abyde
And leyed greet store in Iihoppinh a ryde.
But lukke He seemed to be oures that daye.
Or else it seemed very moche that weye.
After somme miles of miserye,
And we were as tired as we could be,
Around a bend ther uhoven in sighte,
A ubukking fliverll in its flighte.
We hailed it doom and jumped aboard,
And doon the dustye rood we soared,
But wonderleye soon to our greet disguste,
The Ford stente deed in a cloud of duste,
And would not budge another inch,
50 walk we must, for twas a cinch,
The "rekke" could not be putte in motion,
Spite oi greet witte and hardye coaxen,
So doon the dustye road we plodde,
With heavye feet and hertes doonrtrodde.
So now that we been nearly ther,
And as it semes so rightly faire,
And er we rechen our destineye,
To trace in best abilitye,
Our manere, charactere, and lokes,
As one so often hnds in bokes.
Old Fatte there was, a luckeye sport,
His shines were long as Slimmels were short.
He set the pace alonge the roade,
The restte kept up as best theye coude.
Thol delicate he semed, indeed,
In any game he took the leed,
And so neet his appeeraunce was
That if it comen by hap or cas,
For lecdershippe ther came a callet
Fattels name was stevene as choice of alle.
Next was Redde, as gallant a ladde.
As I surmise could evere be hadde:
Loved he ladies and curteisye,
Leaving out the chivalrye.
Hard did he try to winne a race,
T0 stonden in his lady grace.
And moche tyme spent he alle the whyl,
Stryfing to keep aheed 0f styl:
He was the Centre fashoun plate,
The honour was his, he kept it in state:
Crulle were his lokkes and of swete flavour,
On dampen dayes maad strange behaviour.
Namore should be sayed 0f gallant Redde,
For enough has all reedye been seyed.
Last, .1 ladd yrclept little Simme,
Constante exercise had kept himme thinne,
His greetteste desyr was but to eat,
In such a test he was hard to beet;
Giveth himme swetes and pastereye,
And he was happy as he coude be.
With chubby chekes and frekkled visage,
And jaws made stronge by constant usage,
He was a very heelthy sighte,
Maden such by sharp appetite.
Having described oure compaignye,
And having raughte our destineye,
Now is tyme t0 tellen the weye,
In how we passed that joyfulle daye.
As hshingye is a tyresomme thinge,
And thas not proper for to singe,
Stories decided we to telle,
And doon our bestte t0 doon each welle,
And he who tellen his the bestte,
Would have the hsh caught by the restte;
And so to see who sholde beginne,
We Hflippedll to see whold be llodd monne,"
And as the taske so fell to Redde,
Everchon settled t0 heeren whatls seyde.
Here endeth the prolog of this boke; and
here bigyneth the ilirst tale which is Fattes

Being a Junior is the last stretch of the long journey from kindergarten
t0 the exalted state of Senior. We are doing our best to wait patiently until
next term, when we shall he in the limelight as the graduating class.
The members of this Class, nevertheless, are participants in every phase
of school life. Just think of our football heroes, high scholarship students,
club presidents, track men. basketball players, and debaters!
Our weekly class meetings have been thoroughly enjoyed, Bushas cr055r
word puzzles, Bobbyhs minutes, Aarorfs blushes, Websterhs playing, and
Gordyws football hspeechesaa will long be remembered by every member of
It is our sincere belief that the Class has brilliant prospects; that What;
ever we have not accomplished in our Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior
years we will accomplish next year.

Through the able leadership of our President, Harry Reed, the splendid
teamwork Of all the members of the class, and the wise guidance of the faC'
ulty advisers, the Sophomore class has had a happy and successful year,
and has really made a record worthy of being emulated by Sophomore
classes in the years to come.
In scholarship, the standing Of the Class is so high that any student seen
wearing a Linz pin is suspected of being a Sophomore. Our IIIA repre
sentative, Virginia Treadwell, as will be seen by referring to the page of
stars, made the second highest average in the entire student body, 96.76,
while Virginia Ledcly, representative of the IIrBls, came close to this with
an average of 94.4.
Of course, we are eager to be Seniors, as it is our firm determination
to show Bryan what: a real graduating class is. But in the meantime, we
shall confine our energies to our Junior duties, knowing that only a first
class Junior can make a tipetop Senior.

And it came to pass in the fall of the year 1924, A. DA, on the plain
in and around Bryan Street High School, that a band of wanderers apr
peared, garnered from the four corners of the globe. This strange band,
being favorably impressed with the region, soon signified their intention of
taking up their abode here for a period of four years, more or less.
These wanderers straightway discovered the ruler of this sphere, the
powerful monarch who reigned supreme in 112, and who had many of the
adventurers sent for punishment to the dungeon 108, under the dominion
of another, a most august tyrant.
The capers cut by these impudent peoples caused them to be despised
by the colleagues of the ruler, but, nevertheless, the foolish people persisted
in their wild tantrums at regular intervals. Moreover, the dwellers of this
land looked upon this tribe with scorn. They called themselves Upper
Classmen, but the only place where they were up was when they were on
the third floor.
After the lapse of one year, the activities of these once wandering people
are these: They have used their talents wisely. In every phase of life in
this land of learning, they have been true to their trust; They have been
weighed in the balance and found full weight plus. And soon, doubtless,
the clouds will part in a mysterious manner, and a voice from the pedae
gogical regions will be wafted down softly, saying, llWell, done, most faith!

In the days when we shall be imploring Time to turn backward in his flight,
this Dalhi Annual of 1925 will be the means of Visualizing byrgone days and
happy memories. As we turn through its pages, the familiar faces of our class,
mates and teachers will greet us, and, in imagination, we shall tread again the
halls of dear old Bryan.
To those who were unable to procure an Annual because they did not heed
the warning to iiBuy an Annual now,a we might say, iiI told you solll However,
we shall only remind them to do their Annual shopping early next year.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank those students whose names are
not mentioned with the staff. yet who have unselfishly given their services to the
work of' publishing this annual. Among these helpers are Katherine Chase,
Henry Lamar, Lois Johnson, Mary Alice Kidd, and Walter Doughty, The Dalhi
Annual of 1925 would not have been possible had we not had the invaluable
assistance of our faculty advisers, Miss Pauline Warner, Mr. W. A. File, Miss
Eleanor Benners and her art classes, and Miss baker and her typewriting classes.
This volume is the year book of the Bryan Street High School for 1925, from
the most miscroscopic Freshman to the most august departing Senior. It has been
compiled by a. hardworking staff, not without groans and a multitude of manifold
worries and despairing sighs. So, if you happen to like our product, donlt hesi'
tate to tell us so, and we shall feel amply repaid; for it was our sincere desire to
produce an Annual that would really represent our school.

If we are right in believing that the Dalhi Journal of 1925 has been a success,
a great many people, both as individuals and as organizations, deserve to share the
credit. First, of course, we think of the editor and the staff. The editor this
year has been a young lady, Fanna Belle Robertson, and a great portion of the
praise must go to her for her willingness to work herself and her ability to direct
others consistently and intelligently; The entire staff has, for the most part, not
been afraid to work; and, consequently, they have produced a wellrrounded magr
azine, with enough varied departments to relate to every phase of school life.
In the literary department, made possible only by the support and contribuz
tions of the students themselves, have appeared poems and stories ranging from
the humorous and fantastic to the serious and scientific, to please everyone. One
of the most interesting of these was a prize story, written by our principal himself
when he was a student in high school.
The editorial department, composed of contributions from both faculty and
student body, has helped to foster high ideals and school spirit, as has also the
section relating to the different organizations and the weekly assemblies. These
features cannot, in future years, fail to bring back pleasant memories.
Military items, radio, athletics, exchanges, beauty and popularity contests,
have all had their places, as well as the noted Dalhi sTIall of Fame? and the very
popular joke department.
One of the chief factors in making the Dalhi a successful magazine has been
the attractive department heads and cover designs furnished by members of the
But with all these things, the Dalhi could not have been possible had it not
been for the business management, ably directed by Richard Coit. This depart
ment, with its efficient adegetters and able faculty advisers, has made possible
the sale of approximately 800 copies of the Dalhi at each of the five issues
Much credit is due, also, to those who have unselflshly worked llbehincl the
scenes? the typewriting students, and the art classes.
But the greatest factor of all in the success of the Dalhi has been the student
body of Bryan, who have enthusiastically looked forward to HDalhi Day," who
have cheerfully brought their twenty cents every six weeks, who have laughed
at the jokes, andgwept over some of the athletic reviews. In short it was for,
because of, and by, the student body that the Dalhi Journal has been published.

The HirY Club of the Bryan Street High School has now completed one
of its most successful years; During the first term, under the leadership of
John Luther Evans, the club increased its membership and laid a firm founr
dation for the work which it was to accomplish.
Henry Mood was elected President for the second term and by his own
example has led all the members towards the attainment of the clubs pur
pose, which is: iiTo create, maintain and extend high standards of Christian
fellowship throughout the school and community?
This club has also helped the school by making an addition to the library.

The members of the Forum, though few in number, have not failed to
avail themselves of all possible Opportunities for their improvement. The
meetings of the club have been held at the regular time and the programs
have been consistently gratifying.
' Several members have taken an active interest in the debating work,
and also in declamation. This activity has not only gained for the club a
goodly amount of attention, but has increased the membership.
The club has been very fortunate in choosing its ofhcers for this year.
James Krueger, throughout the first entire term of school, constantly
sought to raise the attendance and secure new members. Claude Boone,
one of the youngest members of the club, was Chosen President for the sec .
0nd term because of his unlimited llpepll and activity.
With competent leadership on the part of its officers and loyal coloperr

All members have lunch together once each week. and following this,

many worthy aims have been established and much good accomplished; for
example, the waste removal campaign, and also the creating of sentiment
against hazing. The success of these two movements alone is an indication

The llDl, Club
The llDll Club is composed of men who have won letters in some form
of athletics. This limits the membership to a size which is not unwieldly,
but which is also capable of much work.
The club has had several dances and other social ailairs during the
past year. All of these have been very successful, especially a coon hunt
which was held at Bachmanls Dam, on the farm of Gibbs Slaughter.
Clean sports has been an ideal which the club has always maintained.
The sincerity with which they have held to this idea has been attested to
in all forms of athletics.
The second team in football is also very grateful to the th" Club, for
the ElDll Club bought sweaters which were awarded to the second team.
These sweaters would not have been awarded otherwise.
All in all, the llDl, Club has finished one of its most successful years.
At the beginning of the fall term in 1924, Phi Kappa had two active
members. Now the membership is about twentyriive, and the club is one

The Oii'icers have at all times assumed the full responsibility of their
positions, and it is greatly because of this fact that the club has maintained
such a high standard. The two Presidents for the year were Martin Pickett
and Richard lvey.
Our sponsor, Mr. J. S. Henry, has been most faithful to the club. By
his quiet, but convincing, manner he has imparted to the club a spirit of
dignity, coupled with a businesslike dispatch of duties.
The entire debating team of the school is made up of Phi Kappa meme

COACH P. C. COBB Mlss MCEVOY LLOYD SLATEN
Coach Cobb has been with us four years. He has always turned out a
team that has fought, and one that always played the game as it should
be played. He has given unsparingly of his time and work, that Bryan
might have a glorious record on the gridiron.
Miss McEvoy has been largely responsible for the uniform good scholar
ship exhibited by all our teams this year. When any suggestion reached
her that an athletels grades were falling, she immediately called into con!
ference the wouldrbe Thorpe, or Paddock, 0r Babe Ruth, and invariably
prescribed a rigid but effective retorativeediligent and consistent study. The
boys always responded admirably to her advice, and throughout the year,
as in former years, her influence has been wholesome and invaluable, not
only to the boys individually, but to the tone of athletics generally.
Lloyd Slaten, as business manager of the football team, made an ene
viable record. Under his efficient management, Bryanls schedule was come
pleted earlier than any previous schedule; the training camp at Glen Rose
was handled in admirable style; all details connected with individual games
during the season received his prompt attention. Bryan will not have soon
a better student manager than llMa" Slaten.

Pep Squad and Cheer Leaders
The Pep Squad, one of the most necessary accessories to an athletic
team, did notable work for Bryan in 1925. It was out at every game in
full color, and with vast amount of pep. When things looked worst, it
was at its best, cheering the athletes on to do greater things for their school.
The squad was led by Robert hFat" Daniels, Gwendolyn hShortyh
Losee, and Alfred hAlh Smith. These. with their khteamf worked as hard
as any athletes for the glory of the maroon and white.

Gordy made an excellent captain. He always fought, and carried a

The Training Camp
T0 the outsider, Bryanas football season opened on September 20, when
the first game was played. With the players and those closely related to
the team it began about the first of August, with plans for the camp, and
really opened on September 1, when Coach Cobb and foryehve snarling
wolf cubs actually began practice at Glen Rose, the site of. the 1923 and
1924 training camps.
These fortyehve loyal Wolves, each striving his hardest for a position
on the eleven, remained here for flfteen days, working hard at football and
playing little at anything else. They all trained intensively, sparing no
effort to make ready for the hard season they knew was ahead. When they
returned to Bryan on the 15th of September, every man was in fine condir

Bryan 75, Sulphur Springs 0
The final game before the city series was played on October 24, with
the Wildcats 0f Sulphur Springs High. Bryan had no difficulty in win'
ning, and succeeded in running up their second highest score of the year,
75 , 0.
Nearly all the game was played in the Wildcats territory, while the ball
crossed their goal with amazing regularity. Although the Wolves used
nothing but straight football, there was a gain on nearly every play, as the
linemen opened immense holes for the backs, and a few passes worked ad!
The Bryan custom of playing fighting teams held good because the 8111'
phur Springs team did fight, but they were just outclassed and considerably
outweighed. And against this, when fight is matched with fight, there can
be no winning.

Bryan 0, Oak Cliff 7
The loss that broke the hearts of the Wolves and seemed to destroy
them entirely was taken from the Oak Cliff Leopards on November 1. The
score was '70, with Lynch furnishing the winning margin.
The Leopards were outplayed during most of the game, and the spirit
and fight of the Wolves never showed to a better advantage than in this
game. Every atom of energy that every man possessed was given in his
effort and hope to win the game.
Lynch told the story in the second quarter when he received a punt on
his own 35Iyard line, and after being downed once got up and dashed 65
yards across the goal for a touchdown and the game. The rest of the game
was a midfield battle, with neither side being able to gain an advantage
and with both punting at the slightest danger.

succeeded in gaining many yards, but those that would have done the most
good just could not be completed, it seemed.
Nodine Swift, Gordy Brown, and "Past? Shelton played best for the
Wolves, while Lynch and Hopper easily starred for the Leopards.
Bryan 19, Texarkana 3
The Wolves journeyed to Texarkana on Armistice Day and played the
Arkansas High team of that city. It was a long trip and the boys were
tired, but despite this they displayed a fight that was good enough to defeat
the Texarkana team 19,3. '
Only once did the Razorbacks threaten to put over a touchdown; that
was in the hrst quarter when they covered a Bryan fumble 0n the iryard
line, but the Wolves held them for downs, and Wooldridge punted out of
danger. After that the game was all Bryanis. Nodine Swift plunged the
line for two touchdowns, and Luke passed to J. B. Andrews for another.
Percy Andrews placeekicked goal for one of the trys 'for point, but missed
the other two.
Parker made their only points in the fourth quarter when he put a
wellrdirected dropekick across the bar from the thirtyryard line.
iiPaso" Shelton was the star of the game. He was in nearly every
play as his defensive center, and on the offense his huge bulk left great
holes for the charging backs.
Bryan 0, Forest 10
In their second city series game, on November 14, the maroon and
white again went down in defeatithis time to the roaring Lions of Forest.
The Lions pushed over a touchdown in the second quarter and placeekicked
a held goal in the third for a total of ten points.
The Wolves never seemed to hit their stride and did not seriously
threaten to score at 2111. Most of the time they were on the defensive, trying
to hold the Foresters back.
The Victory was deserved by the green and white, as it clearly outplayed
the maroon throughout the game.
Nodine Swift, Gordy Brown, iiPasoh Shelton, and Bill Coit played the
best game for Bryan, Nodine being the most consistent ground'gainer, with
Gordy, "iPasofi and Bill showing well on the line.
The whole Forest team played well, with Ewell, Messina, and Lagon
on the line, and Reed and Brecht in the backfield standing out.
Bryan 2, North Dallas 7
As a Climax to a disastrous city series and the answering of North
Dallas prayers, the Bulldogs from that school succeeded in administering
their first defeat in football to a Bryan team on November 29, when they
held the Wolves to a safety while they were able to push over a lone touch
Every man on both teams gave his all. It was a glorious win for one
team and a glorious loss for another. The boys from the Bulldog school
had thoroughly determined to win, and they carried out their determination.
Two men, one for each team, both playing their last high school football
game, where the stars of the battle. "iPasoii Shelton. for Bryan, and iiGene"

General Review of the Season
Although the Wolf eleven won by far the majority of its games, the season
was not successful when games won and lost are counted. This is true because
the all'important city games were lost. However, the season was not a failure
when the real reasons and the real purposes back of football and all other athletics
are regarded. Every man played the game square, and played hard. Each
learned to taste the sweet of victory and the bitterness of defeat. The team and
the school came through it all with heads up, colors flying, and spirit undaunted.
From the standpoint of fine spirit and strong teamework, the season was a huge
success for these, more than victories won. are the measure of a team.
Back of the team that was bringing glory to the school and to iself was anz
other team, unheard of and usually unthought of. This team was always there,
however, always ready to plug any weakness in the first line. There was no
glory for them, no frenzied spectators crying to them for a touchdown. There
was only the daily grind, furnishing practice for the first squad, and the hope
that, perhaps, one day they may yet find themselves on the first string.
This team was the second string, who, under Coach Franks, fought gamely
all season to make the first team better.

PERCY ANDREWS, Captain
The first city championship of 1925 was brought to Bryan by Coach Franks
and the basketball five. This team, battling gamely and playing a good, con
sistent game, came through the City series with only two losses, both to Forest.
Several games were played before the city series, but they were only for
practice, and were won and lost without much thought being given to them.
After the city series, came the Denton district meet, which the Wolves won
by defeating Highland Park and Pilot Point. In the district game with Sherman,
the Bearcats nosed the Wolves out by one point and earned the right to enter the
state tournament at Austin.
In the A. A. U. meet the maroon five lost the first game to Athens, then dee
feated Canton and Bardwell, to enter the consolation final with Colfax, who was
defeated for the consolation cup.
Total: One city championship cup, one district championship banner, one
A. A. U. consolation championship cup.
Bryan 10, Forest 14
The first game was a bitter disappointment to Bryanites, for they were de1
feated by the Forest Lions.
The Forest defense was almost impregnable and the green and white boys
managed to work through the defense of the Wolves, despite the hne guarding
by Gordy Brown and Nodine Swift.
That explains it all.
Bryan 16, Oak Cliff I3
In the second city game the Wolves regained their stride and administered
a stinging defeat to Oak Cliff.
The blue and white was the favorite and led during the hrst half, but the
maroon men came back and slowed them down in the second half.
A feature of this game was the excellent playing of P. Andrews and Kelner.

This game was by far the most bitterly fought of all the seasons games, a
total of 28 personal fouls being made in the contest.
Bryan was again trailing at the end of the first half, and the Orange was
leading 15'10 as the half ended.
Keener really starred in this game, ringing four free goals out of five attempts
and four field goals for 12 points. Foy and Swift contributed some good guarding.
Bryan 11, Forest 12
Forest again was victorious over Brynn in the second meeting of these two
This game was featured by hard playing and close guarding, neither team
being able to get near the others goal very often.
The defeat took Bryan from the lead in the city race, but North Dallas deI
feated Oak Cliff the next day and tied the race again, with 500 for all teams.
Bryan 18, Oak Cliff 14
The fifth game of the city race gave Bryan another victory over Oak Cliff.
This game was postponed over an hour so the athletes were miserably off form
at the start. Consequently, the game was a rather poor one in comparison with
those that had gone before.
Percy Andrews played best for Bryan. This was the hfth time in five games
that the captains name was mentioned by newspapers for good playing.

victory gave the Wolves the right to enter the Benton tournament for the district

After drawing a bye in the first round, the Wolves drew the favorites for
the meet in' the second of the district meet. They were equal to the occasion,
however, and handed the Bettsmen a neat drubbing.

Coach Cobb had charge of the baseball team again in 1925. This year
prospects of success seemed as good as they ever had so early in the season.
For three consecutive years the team had come down the stretch into a city
championship. Of course, any speculation as to the 1925 city champs was
a wild guess, but the Wolves looked fine and gave every promise of bringing
their fourth city cup to the trophy case.
Several practice games have been played, some won and some lost. As
the Annual goes to press, the team is just entering into active competition
with other high schools.
One game with an ancient foe, North Side High of Fort Worth, was
battled to a tenlinning tie, 3'3. The game was played in Fort Worth and
was a thrilling contest, with P. Andrews and Lamm starring at bat, and
Bozeman, Keith, and Russell offering the best defensive work.
Luke Blassingame, stellar pitcher, led the team in 75 as captain. His
brother, Fred, and Fred Bozeman did the receiving. Keener, Percy An,
drews, Keith, and Russell guarded first, second, third, and short in the order
named. J. B. Andrews, Cheshire, Patterson, Lamm, and A. Sheppard COV'
ered the outer gardens.
The twirling staff was the best that had been lined up in Bryan in
several years, Luke Blassingame leading, with Coulter from North Dallas,
Bill Coit and J. Sheppard ably assisting him.
Dick Coit was very successful as student manager, keeping the team
well supplied with work.
The championship track team of i24 was back in '23 with the exception
of a few men. With such a fine start and a real bunch of aspirants for
places, Coach Franks began work immediately after the basketball season
and built up a team that was good enough to take second place in the fast
Ft. Worth Fat Stock Show Meet on March 14. In this meet Aaron Teague
added to his reputation as a sprinter by taking first in the 220zyard dash
and second in the lOOryard dash. He also took fourth in the broad jump
for a total of nine points, thereby becoming highrpoint man of the meet.
He was assisted by Evans with second and third points in the 220eyard dash,
and by Maguire and Johnson, who took a fourth each in the pole vault and
high jump, respectively, fOr two points. The Wolf total was fourteen points.
This was beaten by Central High of Forth Worth, who made 17 points.
With this meet as a test of ability, Coach Franks was optimistic as to
the outlook for another city title.
Lawrence Evans was captain of the team, and Floyd Wooldridge
student manager. With these two doing their best, and such men as
Teague, Maguire, Johnson, Balz, Coit, Long, Yancey, and several others
who were counted upon to make points, the City meet promised to be
Austin Track Meet
In the second track meet of the year, the Southwestern Relays, held at
Austin on March 27, the Bryan cinder men competed with the best track
men of the Southwest.
Aaron Teague, our sprint marvel, tied for hrst in the high school hunt
dredryard dash. He was unlucky in matching for the medal, as he secured
the silver one that goes to second place winner.
The halfrmile relay team, composed of Yancey, Wooldridge, Evans, and
Teague, won third in their event.
This meet stimulated greatly the morale of the team, putting them in
first feather for the city meet.
Very few students reported for tennis this spring. In the elimination
tournament: for the city meet, the matches resulted as follows:
John Maddox defeated Harry Reed.
Charles Hall defeated Richard Williams.
William Plath defeated Charles Harty.
In the final matches, John Maddox defeated Charles and won the right
to represent Bryan in singles at the city meet. John Maddox and Charles
Hall will be the doubles team, and Marjory Shelton and Evelyn Rubin will
represent Bryan girls in the city meet, which will be held on the flrst day
of April at the City Park courts.

MAJOR A. C. BURNETT
The best comment that can be made about the Military Department is
simply to state that Bryan Street High School was again an honor school
for the year 1924, and the battalion is in better condition for the Federal
inspection than it has been for years. The privilege of being picked as
one of the best military schools in the country is the highest honor our
. Government gives for Reserve Officersa Training Corps work.
Major A. C. Burnett, 0f the Officersa Reserve Corps is the commandant
of cadets. His long experience and keen love for boys and military work
is a vast factor in our success. The Major is known in the school as well
as in the battalion for his kind and just treatment of the cadets.
This year, also, has shown very rapid growth in the personnel of the
battalion, which now consists of 417 men and officers. The rapid increase
has called for two companies drilling at the same period.
Among the main features of the R. O. T. C. are the summer camps.
These camps have been held at Lampasas for the last four summers and
have been a great success. This summer the camp is to be held at Mineral
Wells, and students will be permitted to enroll in the usual courses.

The Bryan Hi Cadet Band, under the tutelage of Cadet Captain Wilkin
Eaton and Bandmaster Herzog, has progressed rapidly. Anything from
Classical overtures to classical jazz has been OEered t0 the students and fate,
ulty of Bryan High by the band, all of which has been graciously received.
During the flrst term of the session the band had to meet at the school
at eight delock sharp ever scholastic morning for practice; but due to the
increasing number of students who wished to join the band, and t0 the fact
that we hnd more uses for the band constantly, a regular band class has been
organized. This class meets now every day at the fourth period in Room 8,
and the mellow tones of the various instruments sounding in unison often
help a husky young man or Winsome young lass to enjoy his 01' her dinner,
as the case might be.

ANNA BELLE HENRY NELL MOORE
The most notable event in gym history this year is the realization of an
advanced class. For years it has been our desire to have an advanced class,
but only this year has our wish been granted. This class is composed of
girls who have already made their credit in gym and who are taking it
simply for the joy of it. Naturally this creates a. favorable atmosphere, and
this class is the brightest spot in the day for both the teacher and the pupils.
This years enrollment in gym is the largest in the history of the school.
We started the spring term with 403 pupils and eight classes. Naturally,
this necessitated our having an assistant physical director.
Any class which has perfect attendance for live successive days is al'
lowed a picnic, a hike, a skating or a swimming party. We have had an unr
usually large number of these affairs this spring. For a while it seemed as
if every Saturday would be devoted to such outings.
We played our interscholastic volleyrball games early in the spring and
defeated Forest, although we were defeated by Oak Cliff and North Dallas.
The biggest event of the year, the Demonstration, took place in April
and was a great success. The program follows:

cfffosvt beautiful girl x
HO among us does not recall thoSe stirring words of
Napoleon at the battle of Bunker Hill, when he said:
"Give me the good'will of my fellow associates and popu'
larity among my soldiers, or give me death!" Popularity
was as much sought after in those days of old as it is today, and
popularity and beauty have always found a place of high esteem at
Bryan High. Beauty and popularity are treasures to be desired, and
even though a Senior won the honor of being the most beautiful girl this
year, we predict great things from the Other classes next year, especially
from the Freshman class.
The distinction of being the most beautiful girl in the Dal'Hi
Journal Contest and in the school, was bitterly contested, but the
coveted honor was finally awarded to Miss Farina Belle Robertson.
Miss Robertson is well known and liked at Bryan Hi. and the honored
distinction culminates a successful high school career.
Miss Julia Ella Owen is the proud possessor of the popularity crown
awarded in the DalIHi Journal Contest. Her genial good'fellowship
and sunshiny spirit brought the much desired popularity wreath to her
door. The boys had a large share in the result of this contest, as her
smashing smile has made many boy friends for her in Bryant but the
girls were not far behind in the total number of votes cast.
The boys popularity contest was won by Gordon Brown. officially
known as llGordy" Brown. His oversupply of spirit football llfighth
and nerve won the honor for him. The girls had a chance to shine in
this contest, and while Mr. Brown is essentially a mans man, the result
indicates that he also has a pull with the ladies.
And now time is flying by and l'Finis', must soon be marked across
the curtain 0f the DalIHi Journal Beauty Contest for 1925. But before
we close, the Daeri Beauty Contest Staff would like to say a few words
in regard to the excellent support of the Beauty Contest this year and
those few words are briefly these: Our only regret is that we have no
more years at Bryan to give in the service of Beauty!
Beauty Contest Manager, DallHi journal.

Winners of the T. Q Terry Scholarship
The T. G. Terry Scholarship, endowed by Mrs. Lillian Terry to
support a scholarship in Southern Methodist University in memory of
her husband, is awarded annually to a graduate of the Bryan Street
High School. In making the award the following matters are taken
into consideration: in the pecuniary need of the student; tD the
students proficiency in studies and his outlodk for future progress;
00 his moral character, good deportment, and care for and protection
of school property. The scholarship amounts to about $50. Applir
cation must be made for it in the studentis Freshman year.
The first student to receive this award was Mary Lamar, a member
of the class of January, 1923. Three As and two A+'s a term is the
way Mary is representing Bryan at the University. Bryan is proud
of such representation.
J. O. Mahoney, member of the class of June, 1924, was the second
recipient of the scholarship. J. O. is making good as a Frehsman in
the University. When that institution discovers the artistic talent
which J. O. posseses, it will be a fortunate day for the school, for his
ability is of the highest order.

ZEDA MINOR JULIA PELLET
In the debate this year a new system was instituted, the percentage
system so successfully used in athletic and other events. The purpose
of this system, which has proved so successful, was to eliminate the
element of luck, and give each school an equal chance.
The girls team chosen to represent the school this year was come
posed of Zeda Minor and Julia Pellet. They prepared upon the state
subject, TiResolved: That the United States Should Grant the Philip!
p'ne Islands Their Independence at the End of a Period of Five
Years? It was soon found that public sentiment was in favor of the
negative, and that, therefore, this side seemed to have the best Chance.
However, after winning their way to the finals of the city series, they
drew the affirmative in their contest with Oak Cliff, and after a heroic
Ltruggle, won the debate. They are soon to enter the district conr
test, and we are very hopeful of their chances there, since the team
this year is that happy combination so seldom foundeof both arguI
mentative 21nd oratorical ability. The team has been coached by Miss
Dorothy Alexander, instructor in public speaking at Bryan High.
Page One Hundred Twenty-fom
WILTON MADDOX HAROLD THOMPSON
The boys, team this year was composed of Wilton Maddox and
Harold Thompson. The team was Chosen early in January, and then
ensued three months of hard labor. in which they learned the rudie
ments of debate, investigated the subject, wrote speeches, unearthed
rebuttal points, and finally memorized these speeches. After this they
concentrated upon the finishing touches in delivery, attacking their
work with an earnestness which seemed to foretell a worthwhile
achievement. During this period they debated the girls team once
each week, and for practice debated the teams of the Corsicana High
School, North Fort Worth High, and the Corsicana Orphanage.
In the city meets the boys debated twice at home and once with
North Dallas. By a strange arid perverse fate, they were eliminated
from the final contest. However, they won favor with their school
family, a feat of which one can seldom boast. Bryan is proud of this
team, which Miss Dorothy Alexander, their coach, pronounces the
best team that it has ever been her pleasure to direct.

cThe Latin Tournament
The second annual Latin Tournament, attended by about four hundred contestants
from all parts of North Texas, was held April 4, 1925, in Fort VJorth. Because of
the success of a similar contest held last year in Dallas, at the instigation of Miss
Lourania Miller of Forest Avenue High School, a Latin Tournament will be held
every year hereafter. Bryanls representatives this year were Eulalia Thomas and
Louise Cockrell for the Freshmen, Virginia Treadwell and Ruth Tritch for the
Sophomores, Elizabeth Lyle and Nellie Harris for the Juniors, and Gilbert Poin'
dexter and Nedra Newkirk for the Seniors.
In the evening a Latin banquet. honoring the contestants and Visiting teachers.
was given by the North Side High School of Fort Worth. The fact that the menus,
programs, and place cards were Written in Latin caused much excitement; while
a very interesting program was presented, consisting of speeches delivered in Latin,
a javelin fight, and a reproduction of Aeneasl arrival at Dido's court.
The principal feature of the banquet was, however, the announcement of awards,
all of which were essentially Roman in character, such as laurel wreaths, Roman
coins, and banners inscribed Legio X, and S. P. Q. R. The first prize for the
Seniors, 3 university scholarship, was won by a student of Sherman High School.
All our representatives worked hard and did creditable work, bringing home one
award, a second prize, won by Elizabeth Lyle.
Bryan was unusually fortunate this year in her representatives for the spelling
contest, Virginia Belle Morrow and Louise Clark. Winning out in the preliminary
contest, they were intensively drilled by their efficient supervisor, Miss Flora Lowrey,.
for a period of two weeks. In the City contest this splendid team won first place
with a score of 98V2. Bryan is proud of these spellers, and rejoiced when the
Principal presented each one with a handsome Dictionary containing her name
embossed in gold letters on the cover.
The preliminary for the Essay Contest to determine who should represent Bryan
High School in the city contest was held April 1, under the supervision of Miss
Ethel Reed. Although the number of contestants for this honor was small, the
quality of the work produced was good. Louise Golson was given first place by the
committee and will, we feel sure, acquit herself with great credit in the allrcity
Page One Hundred Twenty-Jix
MARJORIE SUE HASSELL CLAUDE BOONE
Bryan is indeed proud of the increased interest which her students
have manifested in public speaking this year. When tryeouts for
declamation were held, a large number of contestants entered and
some surprising talent was unearthed. The students chosen to rep!
resent the school were Marjorie Sue Hassell and Claude Boone. Both
prepared the same speech, itI Am an American," by Elias Zimmere
man. After a period of intensive work, under the efhcient direction of
Miss Dorothy Alexander, they plunged into the city contest, from
which both emerged victorious; Both are splendid speakers, and there!
fore Bryan is expecting them to win still higher honors.
In the contest in extemporaneous speaking, which includes reprer
scntatives from the four Dallas High Schools, Lowell Hooker of
Bryan High won first place. Lowell spoke on the subject, iiMy Idea
of an Ideal Student?
Bryan is proud of her trio of speakers, who have won everything
in the field of public speaking this season, and who are a. credit both
to their school and to their instructor, Miss Dorothy Alexander.

Grant Hayden was an ambitious young fellow in Siddell College, whose father
had once been wealthy, but had suddenly lost all his fortune. Grant was notified
of this and told that he must stop school. He did not tell his brother, Robert, of
the news because of his extremely bad health; Grant saw where there would be
a large sum of money offered for the best piece of sculpture; so he entered the
Grant was the best football player in the school. He had one enemy, Alfred
Woolfe, a hypocrite, who got Grant into more trouble than he could get out of.
Woolfe plotted with Robert to keep Grant from playing in the biggest football
game of the season. He turned Grantis brother and Watassa, an Indian student,
against him. He got Watassa to destroy iiThe Hunter," which Grant had so
faithfully and laboriously done.
This unkind, ugly deed hurt Grant dreadfully, but he had two true friends
through it alliRena Maynard, his ideal of a girl, and Gene Clarke, the football
After the truth was known about Albert Woolfe, and that Grant was en;
deavoring by his sculpture, iiThe Hunter? to try to keep his brother in school,
everyone was quite remorseful, and Watassa and Robert helped him make an,
other figure. Watassa posed for him as an Indian girl. EiThe Indian GirliT won
the prize, but Robert would not accept any of the money; so he and Watassa
decided to go West for his health.
Best of all, Rena promised to complete Grants happiness. Gene Clarke fell
desperately in love with Dolly Sylvester and managed to gain her promise, during
Page One Hundred Twenty-eiglzt
the intervals when they could dodge her twin sister, Echo. There were other
couples, Who at the end of the play were bound by promises.
Miss Parmelee and Professor Sumner, two of the college instructors, furnished
a great deal of amusement by their precise manner, but. the real fun of the play
was furnished by the Clever Junius Brookes, played by Powell Garrett.

As a part of the entertainment offered parents, teachers, friends and students
of Bryan, at a reception given in January, iiRosalieii was presented by the French
department. The play was directed by Miss Cecilia Gillmore, the French teacher.
Its success was largely due to the efficiency of the stage manager, Ben Andres, and
to the business ability and artistic taste of Florine Dyer and Dorothy Gillin, who
decorated the stage. Before the rise of the curtain, a short synopsis was given in
English, by Vivian Earle.
The characters were :

The Bols, ordinary people awaiting an important caller, schooled each other
and the maid on making a good appearance. Rosalie broke a cup. They
stormed, and told her she must pay for it and could not have Sunday afternoon
off. When the doorbell rang, she refused to answer. Not wanting to seem to
have no maid, they plead, threatened, and finally, one point at a time, yielded to
all her demands, begged her pardon and promised to scold no more. On opening
the door, she found a man who was looking for the apartment above.

The mother is the widow of a Methodist minister, a man who was twenty'
three years her senior. She is left with twin children, a son and a daughter, and
about $2,000. Her father, a New Hampshire farmer, agrees to send the children
to college, and the family move to the college town. Romance enters Mrs. Starr
leyis life for the first time, in the person of Professor Giddings, aged forty, just
two years her senior. Mrs. Stanley, freed from the influence of the church and
church people, begins to grow young and frivolous; but this does not suit the
Children. To them she is still a ministeris widow, with that position to maintain;
and she is also their mother.
Youth does not become her, they think; and as for a love affairhimpossible!
The mother is forced to choose her path, and, of course, decides to remain just
a mother-to be has old as my children think I amf" But the professor solves
the problem by asking permission to pay his addresses to the mother. He opens
the girls eyes to her own selfishness, and, instead of remaining an obstacle in the
way of her motheris happiness, the girl becomes a matchmaker.

SONG OF THE SUPERIOR SENIOR
0, Its herce to te a Freshman
Of the variety ulong green?
And answer to tne name of "Fish"
And other titlks mean.
And itqs sad to be a Sophomore
That wild and wooly bunch,
Who Whistle in assembly
And tear like mad to lunch.
Its no joke to be a Junior
And bear in abject woe
The snubs 0f snippy Senior
And the sauce of Sophomore.
And its pathetic to be a pedagog
And rise at half past four
To grade one thousand papers
And then grade thirty more.
But it's GRAND to be a SENIOR
And wear a lordly frownu
The glory of the high school
And the wonder of the town.

In high school thereis a subject called Latin,
On which students are supposed to batten;
But it makes Iem all lean
And lanky, I weene
Its the deadest class I ever sat in.
And oh, that terrific trigonometry,
Ten thousand times harder than geometry;
Itis deadly and dire,
It makes us perspirea
That terrible, tough trigonometry!

Why I chose youIs a very great mystery.

When IId much rather read now this story.
Senior English! Heard you e'er such great lot
Of silly and foolish old tommyrot?
Who cares if he knows
Either poetry or prose?
I am sure I would much rather be shot.
But that sewing and cooking's what gets you;
From stitching and baking it neler lets you
Have a minute to play
Or wander away;
For to tasks never ending it sets you.
Have you eIer heard the language called
Oh, how Id like to make it vanish
Far away from this sehool
To some bottomless pool
What woes from us kids that iud banish!
The people who invented mathematics
Most surely had bats in their attics;
For cosines and cologs
Drive good boys to the dogs
And make of our teachers fanatics.
Bum, bleak, and bustiferous biology-
What must have been the psychology
Of the Powers'That'Be
Who imposed you on me?
Why didnit they make it BUYology?
Oh, this PUNK stuff called military
Which attempts to outclass chivalry.
It makes me just sick-
Oh, how IId love to lick
All the Big Stills in my company.

Chile-Thin, watery substance, often used
