E have encountered many difficulties in publishing this Annual
W the debt on the last year-book had to be paid, the financial success
of this volume must be assured, and work on it was not started
until late in December. Then, too, the high cost of printing and engrav-
ing forced us to make our book much smaller than we had wished. For
the first time in the history of the school. girls have held the positions of
editor-in-chief and business manager. However, in spite of all the handi-
caps and obstacles which have been placed in our way, we believe that
The Sandsform has not been a failure, and the pleasure of the work has
far out-weighed the effort and worry.
It has been our purpose to nut out an Annual, which. though pub-
lished bv the Senior class, should be representative of the whole school.
We sincerelv hone that we have olfended no one, and that all iokes will
be regarded in the same spirit of wholesome fun with which they
have been made. For the benefit of the Annual Stai of next year, our
chief difficulty has come from the fact that we did not start on snap-
shots and pictures soon enough, and that we neglected to ask for
cartoons and write-ups some time before we needed them. We have
found, too, that certain groups of people never hand in kodak pictures
or jokes, and that other groups help us all the time. Of course, this will
result in the prominence of some in the Annual. while others may seem
left out, but we have striven to avoid this, and it is due to the failure
to help us.
To the members of the faculty who have given us encouragement
and advice, to the students who have so whole-heartedly supported our
enterprises, to all those who have given us assistance, pictures, write-
ups, stories and jokes, we express our sincere appreciation. The splen-
did spirit with which everyone has responded to our requests speaks
more to us of the morale of the school than any other thing.
In reviewing our four years in High School, as seen through the
pages of The Sandstorm, we Seniors realize that they have been glor-
iously worth while. And if, in the years to come, this Annual shall recall
to you some of the memories of our life together, if it shall bring back to
you some part of the spirit which has enveloped our relations, some glow
of our friendships, then our work shall not have been wholly in vain.

'Twas Judgment Day.
St. Peter stood at the gates of Heaven,
Smiling favorably upon the Class of 1919
As it tiled proudly thru.
He addressed her thus:
"Hoi ho! And art thou Ethel Rowse
Of whom I've heard so much?
Thy virtues are many, thy faults are few,
Well hast thou conducted the class thru a

Bound in gold and inlaid with jewels,

Receive thee this crown,
Take the path of the "Learned."
He bows, she passes on.
"And whom have we here?"
St. Peter pleasantly remarked.
"Thy face is familiarg
Hast thou not been here before?
Thou art Katherine Dessert.
Ferne Marquis ....... . . . "Mark"
Many times hast thou approached
The Gates beseeching ads.
With thy cheery smile thou hast 'made thy way into the
hearts of many.
Take thee this golden receipt book
In reward for thy careful financing.
Follow the path of the "Patient."
He smiles, she passes on.
The third member stands before the Saint.
He questions her with these words:
"Mabel, art thou the woman who broke F1oyd's heart?
Hast thou no pity for the defenders of the U. S. A?
Art thou heartless?
However, thou hast kept the books of the class well,
And thou shalt be duly rewarded.
Accept thou this silver pen.
Takest thou the way of the Cruel of Heart."
He nods, she passes on.
"Ah, methinks I hear the strains of music.
Anna, come forward.
Park thy jitney without.
The angels of Heaven envy thee thy voice.
Take care that thou dost not ensnare men's hearts
As did the sirens of old.
Thy stage career hath brought thee fame.
I now present this golden harp to thee.
Pursue the course of the Limelight."
Even Saint Peter straightens his tie, she passes on.
Harry approaches with downcast eyes.
"Blessings on thee, little man,
Why so pensive?" the good Saint askedg
Tho thou art the only one of thy sex in this class,
Cheer up, old top!
Thou art captain of the Military Company.
Thy reputation as a chemist has reached the very portals
Here is the sceptre 3
Take it as thy reward.
Follow the path of the "Diligent."

drink of 1emonade.J .
Then he speaks.
"Ione, come forward.
Look not so timid.
Thou hast improved the Class of 1919 by thy knowledge.
Small as thou art, thou are looked up to.
Thy themes, altho always picked to pieces,
Are worthy of a place in literature.
Receivest thou this golden book "Descriptions,"
Tread the path of the "Faithful."
He steps aside, she passes on. ' '
"And who is this little English maiden?"
The good Saint Peter inquired.
" 'Tis none other than Eilleen,
The click of whose typewriter has reached the
Altho disappointed in love thou smilest still.
Take thee this typewriter,
Whose keys when struck by skilled fingers,
Give forth sweet music.
Follow the trail of the "Hopeful,"

The Saint pricks up his ears.
"Lol Here comes our loyal Janice.
She believest not in the good motto

Well hast thou remained true to thy Briggs-
In September thou shalt be rewarded.
Carry thou this golden megaphoneg
May it enable you to continue your work better.

He grins, she passes on.
"Take thy place, Ferne.
One of such a quiet and sweet disposition as yours

Thy habits are above reproach.
Thou neither drinkest nor chewest.
Thy droll manner hast brought forth many a laugh.
I give thee this key, which will open the door,
Behind which are the secrets of the Civil War.

"Why dost thou look so sleepy, fair Vera?

Thou hast suffered keenly because of thy many engagements
But thou shalt find a way.
Tho absent a great deal
Thou hast kept up in thy grades.
Receivest thou this diamond ring

He sighs, she passes on.
"Sniff, sniff-what do I smell?"
The good Saint Peter asked.
" 'Tis the aroma of Lo1a's cookies.
Come forward, my dear.
Well hast thou fathomed the secret of the culinary artg

If it were not for the brilliant, talented, and worthy Junior Class,
which has always encouraged and helped us, we Seniors avow that it
would have been an utter impossibility to have attained the exalted
position which we now hold.
The Junior Class is made up of nineteen girls and six boys and it
is difficult to select any one member and speak of that one as above the
others. However, we wish to mention some in particular.
We have been urged to greater scholastic achievements by Raymond
Hanson, Junior Physicist, Jennie Clarkson, Junior Chemist, and Rodney
Smith, Honor Student. It was Rodney who accompanied Ethel and
Kathryn to Laramie and made possible the upholding of our honor and
thereby the honor of N. C. H. S.
It is rare, indeed, for one class to have a Bill Kocher, a Bob Grieve,
and a Lloyd Price, all of whom hold prominent positions on the Basket-
ball team, and it is a regrettable fact that the Junior boys are promi-
nent in the Military Company.
We will admit that we envy them their musicians and artists. In our
class, we have no pianist like Alice Stevick, no vocalist like La Clair
Dismuke, no designers like Ruth Saltz and Ruth Servatius, and no car-
toonist like Mabel Schnick.
How could we have edited this Annual if it had not been for
the Juniors? It would have been a physical impossibility! Didn't Ruth
Ullery, Leslie Van Doren, and R. L. Holman draw original cartoons for
us, and didn't Theodora Wilson contribute a story for the literary de-
School spirit has been so marked in this class that we have felt
ashamed and have been spurred on to rightful leadership. The Junior
Christmas party, given for the entire high school, was the beginning
of the school activities and resulted in the Senior cafeteria.
Throughout the different years the history of this class has been
an object of envy to us and we feel happily satisfied to graduate and
leave such worthy successors.

With matted whiskers enter I
Muttering this soliloquy.
"At last I have returned to these great halls,
Encompassed by these grim and crumbling walls,
And as I gaze with blinking eye there greets
That gaze long rows of dusty desks and seats.
Ah! long, long years ago when all was young,
And Casper's glory was on every tongue,
One fine September morn a haughty group
Of former Freshmen to the school did troop
And entered those now rusty, creaking doors,
To become a class of forty Sophomores.
"Here Matty sat, our president was he,
Whom to describe would make this history
So novel and enticing that I fear
We would forget the others who are here.
There Ruegsegger, vice president and one
Who spent his youth in revelry and fun,
And who doth spend his age in blissful ease
Beneath a group of shading cypress trees.
There Isabelle, our secretary, she
Was loved by one who tho his family tree
Has many budding branches, yet the most
Can make him nothing more than just A. Post.
There Ethel sat, collector of the kale,
And in such matters never known to fail.
There Helena, our flower girl was she
And president of the W. T. C. C.
That seat is clever Rodney's I behold,
His tongue was silver and his words were gold,

Which, floating thru the room with res'nant din,
First place in reading books for him did win.

So great they were their gorgeousness enthralls
My memory, and I do pause and think,
And from my wrinkled self do almost shrink,
When I consider I was once of yore
Called by the glorious name of SOPHOMORE!

The High School stands that was our only pride,
Without a tenant and without a name,
An emblem of our class's mighty fame."

The afternoon of the day Prentiss Boyd entered school, he was ob-
served in the English room talking to Jack Tobin.
"What kind ob a class am dis Freshman class all got?"
"Pretty good class," Jack chirped, "David Kidd is president. He's
the best guard on the team. And there's Tuck Bishop, our vice-presi-
dent and impromptu speaker. He'd have won the trip to Laramie if he
had not spoken so impromptu-"ly," in referring to the silver tongued
orator. Joe Dessert's our treasurer. We decided on some one small so
he could be easily caught if he eloped with the money."
"Who am d' girl dat just passed the door?"
"Oh, that's Margaret McRae, our secretary. She's on her way to the
encyclopedia. She lives on knowledge, but it doesn't hurt her looks
"Where's de rest ob the gels?" Prentiss asked interestedly.
"Where d'you s'pose they'd be right after dinner?" Jack asked dis-
gustedly. "They're in front of the mirror, of course. All that noise you
hear is Cora's loud stockings shrieking at each other."
Suddenly a deep laugh was heard that ended abruptly in a long
drawn out trilly "e-e-e-uh."
"Who dat? Somebody sick?" Prentiss asked anxiously.
"No, that's just Lovey taking her daily ablution in laughter," said
Jack. Presently "Smiles" floated down the hall in an uncertain bari-
tone. Prentiss looked his inquiry.
"Oh, nothing serious," Jack volunteered. "Ted M's just practicing
up for his evening serenade. He gets that way every little while."
"Who dat ober dar in de connah?" '
"That's Fred McFarland and Roy Ohman, the long and the short of

Richy our general nuisance. Post kissed Wayne the other day in algebra
class. He's very affectionate, so the girls say."
"Hab yo' a class teachah?"
"Yes, Miss Barr is our class teacher. We got the pick of them all
when we got her."
"Who am da gigglers?"
"Oh, that isn't anything but Helen and Inez wound up. Inez gets
started once in a while and when she quits Helen Archibald starts. Then

On March fourth, the Delta Phi Phi Literary Society was organized,
with twenty-one girls as charter members. Miss Dudley was unanimously
chosen as adviser. The following officers were elected: President, Ethel
Rowse, Vice-President, La Clair Dismuke: Secretary, Mabel Johnson,
and Treasurer, Ione Wolcott. A program committee was then elected
to serve for the year, and to arrange and supervise all programs. Its
members are: Lola Miller, chairman, Mabel Schnick and Katherine
Dessert. The purpose of the society, as stated in the constitution, is
"the mental improvement of its members, and the furthering of the best
interests of the school." This is the only literary society in the school at
present, and we hope that one or more kindred societies will be started
in the near future. The qualifications for membership are very rigorous,
so that only clever and earnest students may become members. By
making the Delta Phi Phi an organization that counts in student activi-
ties, we hope to establish a Literary Society which will last and grow
with the school.
We have given two interesting programs, the first based on Saint
Patrick's day, and the second on the movies. We are now planning to
entertain the whole school with a combination of the two. Others are
being arranged, which will have as their basis athletics, history, col-
lege life, and many other interesting things. We intend also to give a
play and to conduct a short story contest. Notable features have been
the songs by the X Q Z Club, and the Work of the Carrot-Top Vaudeville
With so auspicious a beginning we believe that the Delta Phi Phi
Literary Society will soon become an institution of the school, and that
it will always maintain the high ideals of its founders.
CWith Apologies to Edgar Allen Poe.J
Once upon a midnight dreary, I did ponder, weak and weary,
Over chapters in my text books which I never knew before,
But I said, "I'll study, study, 'till I know a little more,"
" 'Tis a beastly shame," I muttered, "to dig this o'er and o'er,
Only this and nothing more."
Ah, distinctly I remember, it was in the bleak December,
That I studied, studied, studied for a test to take next day,
How I put in every hour using up my meager power:
"But the mark I'll get for this," I said, "it surely will repay,
Of each problem I am sure, and I now feel pretty gay,
This will surely me repay."
And so went I upon the morrow, with no thot of any sorrow,
Anxiously to take the test, which was for me in store.
Oh, I felt so very cheery, and not a thing seemed dreary,
Each question seemed so easy, as I conned my answers o'er.
"I'll get ninety-seven surely, if I don't get any more,
But I'm sure I will get more."
When I passed in all my papers, I felt just like cutting capers,
But the sad time when my mark I asked, I did feel pretty sore
Instead of ninety-seven, which I thot I'd get, Oh Heaven!
I got the mark of sixty-seven, and not a figure more.
I felt like sinking then and there away down thru the floor,
And of rising--nevermore.
Presently my soul grew stronger, sorrow felt I then no longer,
"What's the use, I thought, "of grieving since I got no more,
I couldn't get it, could I? If I didn't studyg would I?
My books I studied for the test, why, o'er and o'er and o'er,
Will I sit up half the night again until books are a bore?
I think I will-once more." A
-HELEN BROSSARD, '20.
TUB JONES, the town athlete who was called in to act as coach for
the basketball team, leaned back in his chair with folded arms,
hoisted his feet to the top of his desk, puffed contentedly at his
almost cold pipe and regarded the green Freshman with complacent
"I tell you, Jack, there's no earthly use in you getting down in the
mouth about it. Why, man, stick by it! You've got twice the ability
that some poor fellows have. Did you ever hear o' Calico Jim?"
Jack shifted akwardly from one foot to the other. "No," he said,
shaking his head despondently, "who was he, a calico salesman?"
"What, never did? Well I say you shore must'a lived all your life
in the back woods. Sit right down an' prepare to absorb the most
thrillin' bit of literature that I ken relate, only first pass me some
tobacco an' a match. Thanks.
"Well, to begin with, it wuz one day long ago when I'd only been
coachin' here fer two years, that a new freshman entered school. He
wuz a long, lean, bashful guy with a grin that was almost painful. I'll
never forget the day the principal brot him round to introduce him to
me an' the boys on the team. He wuz green as a pumpkin from between
two cabbage hills an' red an' awkward as a lobster fresh from the sea.
He wore a big cowboy hat an' a pair o' boots, but the crownin' feature
in his make-up was his gorgeous shirt,--oh Jack! I ken see it yet,-all
red with a conspicuous yeller figger all over it, the boys named him
'Calico Jim' then an' there an' he shore deserved the name, fer if ever I
saw a fellow in love with calico it was him.
"Well, he stood blushin' an' grinnin' an' shiften' all over the floor
while the principal told me his name, then he up an' took off his lid
an' made me a bow, a real gentleman's bow he meant it fer, an' said
in a little shrunk up voice, Tm shore mighty pleased to meet ya,' then
he turned to the boys,-poor guys, they were dyin' to laugh,-an' he
said, 'I'm overwhelmin' glad to meet ya, too.'
"He shore took with the girls. It's quite astoundin,' but they all fell
in love with him on sight an' nearly ran the poor guy out 0' school.
He'd walk a mile any day to keep from meetin' a girl, an' in the class-
rooms, when he went to exhibit his learnin,' if a girl smiled or looked
within a mile o' him, he'd sit down like a flash an' fall to examinin' his
"Gee, but he shore went in fer the basketball! I swear that fer two
weeks after he joined not one o' them fellers knew what it was like to
stand on his feet, but Calico Jim soon got over his clumsinessg he got
into the spirit o' the thing an' before we knew it he was a pretty fair
basketball man, that wuz, providin' the girls, an' especially the pretty
ones, didn't throng too closely around the balcony nor scream too loud.
"Well, the boys played him a dirty mean trick when he wuz a fresh-
man,-it shore frizzled the hash for the adorin' girls. It was jest this
way: Cal lost his head over a little brown eyed Freshie an' decided to
pay 'er way to the dance the night o' the Senior festival, but the boys
told 'm that he'd have to ask the principal an' maybe go before the
school board an' obtain a written permit to be her escort. They waited
till they knew the principal wuz out an' bribed the senior class presi-
dent, Bob, to take his place. He did, an' when Calico Jim went into the
oiiice Bob looked up so self important like an' said, 'What can I do for
you, J ames?'
"Cal shifted about an' grinned an' hitched his green an' blue
calico shirt an' finally raked up courage enough to say, 'I want to take
that there little Polly Brown to the dance an 'if you'll just give me a
warrant to take 'er I'll be most tremendously obliged! a
" 'Certainly,' said the senior gravely, 'the principal is out but he left
orders for me to issue all such warrants.' Then he took a pen an' wrote
a real saucy order to the girl tellin' her that she wuz thereby desired to
attend the 'Senior Hop' with the bearer of the message. Then he put it
in an envelope an' told the poor simp to give it to the girl without lookin'
"Cal stalked up to her when she wuz talkin' to a bunch o' the girls
an' passed her the envelope with a real bashful an' awkward air. She
read the message. tore it up, an' bawled the poor kid out jest terribly.
He shore reauired a long time to git over that rebuff but it made him
shyer than ever o' the girls an' more watchful o' the boys.
"Well Cal furnished real wholesome laughin' material fer the kids
all thru his Freshman year, and believe me, Jack, he wuz shore fresh.
It made one feel the country breezes jest to look at him. When he got
to be a Sonh he sorta polished up a bit on his manners an' when he wuz
a Junior the boys all sorta looked up to him respectfully, fer he wuz
all of six feet tall. Put in spite 0' all these improvements, when he got
to be a Senior he still hung on to his calico shirts an' his fear o' the girls.
"He wuz our best basketball player but none 0' us seemed to think
so until the big game with Promise Citv. The school wuz in a hubbub
fer a week before an' everyone wuz absorbed head over heels in the
team. There wuz so much competition an' we had so many players that
we decided not to use Cal unless as a sub. We thot he'd shore be nut
out about it but he jest put on his suit an' sat down, grinnin,' to watch
"We shore got drubbed the first half. The guards acted like they
might a' been asleep on their feet an' the forwards weren't much better:
them Promise City boys played like mad an' our boys jest sorta trotted
around among their feet. Bill went out with a sprained ankle an' we
had to put Cal in his placeg the score was then 44 to 4 in their favor.
"Well, we were shore a blue bunch,-some o' the girls was weepin'
an' the boys looked like they wanted to. only Cal jest grinned an'
grinned an' when he went in fer the second half he wuz still grinnin.'
"Right after that we noticed that our score wuz creepin' up an' then
we saw that Calico Jim wuz doin' more than all the others put together.
The team took heart an' our side 0' the score crept up, 12, 20, 30, an'
the whole mob o' spectators jest yelling Cal's name like mad.
"Believe me, Jack, Calico Jim wuz doin' some tall playin'. He
almost forgot to grin, an', inside four minutes, our score wuz up to 42,
but the time wuz very near up an' every one of the rooters felt cold
shivers when they looked up an' saw as we only had a minute an' a half
to even up that score an' get a little beyond it.
"Then one o' our boys got the ball an' somehow managed to make
a basket. We were tied but yet that wuzn't winning, an' we only had a
few seconds to play. One guy got the ball an' sent it flyin' to Cal jest
as the crowd began to scream that the time wuz up. The referee hadn't
said so yet an' so Cal jest took a mcinent to git ready, everybody shut
up like a clamg the Promise City boys made a rush at Cal jest as he
shot the ball straight as an arrow into the basket an' won the game fer
us by two points.
"How they all cheered, especially the girls! Calico Jim wuz the
hero of the evening, his calico shirts shore lost their obnoxious appear-
ance an' the whole school would of been glad to wear 'em in his honor.
"We had a big dance right after that but I didn't see Cal among
'em so I stepped to a window an' looked out on a little side porch. I
saw a girl. the onlv one that Cal, ever smiled at. standing in the shadow
with her back to the door, an' then, I saw Cal standin' behind her as
ouiet as the grave. It wuz all amazin' vivid there in the moonlight.-
I ken see it yet, her with her white dress an' dark hair an' him standin'
there so still: then I saw him move forward ever so quietly. He stepped
right up beside the girl an' she never saw him, an' then,-a match
please Jack,-an' then he put his arm around her right smartly an' gave
her such a kiss that I fancied I heard him. The girl whirled around but
poor Cal had vanished like thin air.
"Five minutes later he came to me all red an' bashful, like he wuz
the day he came to school, an' said. 'Say, Coach, what would you do
supposin', of course nothin' of the kind would ever happen, but jest
supposin', you know, what would you do if you got moon struck an'
kissed a girl an' she got thunderstruck an' wuz goin' to bawl you out,
only you run away?'
"Well, Calico Jim', said I, 'I'd go right back an' beg her pardon an'
promise to behave in future, only I might fergit myself an' repeat the
offense if she wuz'nt very mad!
"Cal listened as if I might a' been readin' advice from the Bible an'
then he walked directly out on the porch. Next time I saw him he wuz
wearin' his brightest calico shirt, his signet ring was missin' but he had
a real lady's ring around his necktie. I took it that they'd exchanged
tokens of friendship,-pass me my tobacco boy,-at any rate Cal had
on one o' his special smiles.
"So there, Jack, you have the story of Calico Jim, the school hero,
that stuck to the team an' to the girls an' to his calico shirts until he

With many miles between,
Volunteered for service,
The dirty Hun to clean.
Just three soldier boys,
With uniforms to wear
Their guns and packs arranged,
Under Uncle Sammy's care.
Just three soldier boys,
On the way to France.
On the way to Europe,
To take that "one big chance."
Then our three soldier boys,
Were asked to go to the front,
Never heeding conditions,
And never even a grunt.
Now our three soldier boys
Into the trenches were thrown,
And then that fateful hour
"Over the top," but never a groan
Just three Yankee boys,
On the battle fields of France,
Never looking into the future,
But always taking a chance.
Three brave soldier boys,
Lying there alone,
Never to be awakened,
Never again to moan.
Just three plain boys,
But men clear through,
Gave their lives for freedom-
They were the first to die for you

Declamatory work was started this year, for the first time in N. C.
H. S., under the leadership of Miss Littell, English and Public speaking
teacher. Although this kind of work is new here, many of the pupils
have entered into it. The contestants have been divided into two groups
which will hold separate contests. Those who entered in the Freshman-
Sophomore group are, Dean Sheppard, Helen Archibald, Weston
Sproul, Roy Ohman, Cora Likely, Harold Sawyer, Roland Keeton, Lovey
Norris, Edna Kassis, Alice Mechling, Helena Wilson, and John H.
Bishop. The Junior-Senior group consists of Ethel Rowse, Katherine
Dessert, Ruth Adams, R. L. Holman, Rodney Smith, and Vera Hollings-
worth. The contests took place the 21st and 22nd of April. In the
Freshman-Sophomore contest, first place was given to Helena Wilson,
second place to Weston Sproul, and honorable mention to Alice Mech-
ling, In the Junior-Senior contest, first place was given to Ethel Rowse,
second place to Rodney Smith, and honorable mention to Ruth Adams.
Since this declamatory work has found such favor this year, it is hoped
that it can be broadened next year, and perhaps a state contest held.
1 STATE TOURNAMENT
The Second Annual High School week was held at Laramie March
26th to 29th, inclusive. In addition to the basketball tournament as held
lest year, the tournament was extended to include the academic side,
three contests being held along that line, interpretative reading, sing-
ing, and impromptu speaking. After several preliminary contests,
Kathryn Mahoney was chosen by outside judges to represent Casper
High in singing, Ethel Rowse in impromptu speaking, and Rodney Smith
in interpretative reading. These representatives, with Lovey Norris as
official "rcoter," and Mr. Wilde ras chaperon, left for Laramie Tues-
day evening, March 25th. The contests were held Wednesday evening,
Kathryn Mahoney taking first place in singing, Ethel Rowse second
place in impromptu speaking and Rodney Smith second in reading.
Monday morning, March 31st, the party of professor and pupils re-
turned hcme with plenty of pep, and prizes of pins, pillows and pennants.

Girls' Glee Club
Girlz' C5122 Cllluh

The High School Girls' Glee Club, under the supervision of Miss
Harriet Little, has advanced several steps during the year, toward be-
ing what a glee club should be. Miss Little has built it up to such an
extent that two evenings a week are necessary for the practice of the two
divisions. About forty girls are interested in the work and, from all this
material, Miss Little has discovered some very fine talent for singing.
At the first of the year, an operetta was planned, which would have
demonstrated to the public the splendid work which the club was do-
ingg but in the midst of preparations the influenza quarantine descended
and stopped everything. The operetta plans were abandoned, and
regular practice resumed.
The work for the rest of the year was on songs which were pre-
pared for commencement, and Miss Little chose some of the best singers
to give special numbers. Alice Stevick is the Glee Club accompanist.
Much good and a great deal of pleasure have been derived from the
Glee Club work, and full credit is given to its organizer and to the mem-
bers who have worked so faithfully.

"With the Colors Club"
Captain ......... ......... ..... H e lena Delle Wilson
First Lieutenant .... .......... E thel Seanor
Second Lieutenant .............................. Isabelle Hanway
One afternoon on the tenth of September, Nineteen hundred and
eighteen, ten high school girls were discussing the situation their
country was in. Individually we could do little to help, but banded
together we felt we could accomplish much. This is how the "With the
Colors Club" was formed, and to help win the war was our object.
Our organization was military in character with Helena Delle Wil-
son as captain, Ethel Seanor as first lieutenant, and Isabelle Hanway
as second lieutenant. The privates assembled in the following order:
Opal Martz, Inez Seanor, Mable Lamb, Ruth Ullery, Edness Mokler,
and Gladys Golliday.
We have lost Gladys Golliday from our charter membership and
Isabelle and and Mable are absent from the city, though they are still
members. During Isabelle's absence, Ruth Ullery is acting second
We have added to our group, Dorothy Stitt, Edith Sprague, Eliza-
beth Kidd, Helen Archibald, Helen Raynor and Lovey Norris.
At our first meeting we elected the following honorary members:
Patrick Sullivan, L. A. Reed, Chancellor Butchell and Doctor Thomas.
While school was dismissed during the influenza epidemic in
October, we girls went to work earning money for our Liberty Bond. In
this drive we did chorus work in the theatres and at the refineries. In
November we subscribed to the United War Workers' campaign and
sold flowers and confetti to help the cause. Through December we
worked on the Red Cross Christmas drive and raifled off a picture,
donated to the Red Cross, the money we took in on this defrayed the
expenses of the drive in the local chapter.
In January we adopted a French orphan and in February raffled a
Pathfinder racer, donated by Mr. Steve Tobin, for the Fatherless Chil-
dren of France fund.
All the money we have used in our war work relief has been earned
by the girls in many other interesting ways, we have even washed
Our club has had many good timesg picnics and parties have made
our work enjoyable. And now at the close of the year with war and
its obligations past, we feel that it is impossible to disorganize but
ratherthat we should do our bit, through the years to come, in all
Ten little girls, right in a row,
Some of them, I s'pose you know. The cute little thing,
They are slim, fat, short and tall, It'g a wonder by this time-
And now I'll introduce them all. She hasrft a ring.
We won't forget Dorothy,
First, there is Helena,
The head of the bunch.
And as to talking:
She sure has the punch.
Second comes Ethel,
By name she's a Lieut.
And whenever she sees 'em,
She makes 'em salute.
Next is Miss Hanway,
By name Isabelle,
And of all songsters
She surely is swell.
The fourth one is Inez,
Now this I must tell:
She's a sister to Ethel,
And they get along well.
The next girl is Mabel,
Her last name is Lamb,
She stays on the ranch,
And helps Uncle Sam.
There's also Ruth Ullery,
Who's a sweet little girl.
But she looks even sweeter,
With her hair in a curl.
The next one is Edith:
Sprague's her last name.
For cooking and sewing,
She has all the fame.
And don't forget Edness,
With pretty red hair.
Altho she's top heavy
She can sit on a chair.
Last comes Miss Opal,
With curly black hair.
And she always is willing
To take any dare.
Now you know them every one,
A mighty patriotic bunch.
Organized for just one thing,-
To give the Kaiser one big punch

Society is a doin's
Where everyone turns out,
To do a lot of dancing,
And never laugh or shout.
They just go 'round a 'mopin,'
And never crack a smile.
And that never made anyone
Money by the pile.
Party every night, or
Something of the sort
Where they shine on one another,
And it all ends in the court.
They're always wearing dress suitsQ
And dresses fit to kill,
And they never do look comfortable
No matter how they frill.
I don't see how they do it,
And bluff it as they dog '
And when it comes to Working,
I don't believe they do. Do you?
On December 20, the Junior class gave the first High School party
of the year, in the form of a Christmas dance. The Juniors got together
and planned a party that everyone could enjoy.
The gymnasium was transformed by holiday decorations. The
balcony was hung with pine boughs and very realistic icicles. There
were red and green streamers from the center of the ceiling to the
balcony, and all sorts of Christmas bells were hung from them. In the
center of the floor was a huge Christmas tree, elaborately decorated with
tinsel and ornaments, and strung with electric lights. The four corners
of the room contained smaller trees which served a double purpose.
At 9:00 o'clock, the evening began with a program, consisting of
musical numbers by Violet Burkett, Miss Burnett, and Professor Lund-
berg, and readings by Miss Littell. Dancing was the principal pastime
of the evening and lasted until about 11:30. Then the big surprise
came, in the shape of a Santa Claus, who distributed from the trees,
gifts to every person present. These were laughed over and enjoyed by
the recipients, and then "Home Sweet Home" ended the good time.
The Juniors invited all the students and a few of their friends, and
asked members of the School Board to act as chaperons. Everyone en-
joyed the evening, and agreed that the Junior party was a great success.
-A. S., '20.
This year the Seniors duplicated last year's success by giving a cafe-
teria, to raise money for the Annual. On the 24th of January, the gym-
nasium doors were opened at 1:00 o'clock, to admit the hungry stu-
dents and teachers, as well as the many townspeople who came up for
lunch. The Seniors, standing behind long counters, served many varie-
ties of sandwiches, salads, baked beans, pickles and olives, pie, cake,
ice cream and punch. After all the guests were satisfied, Mrs. Hufsmith
played for us and we danced during the afternoon. Everyone had a
splendid time and We made more than a hundred dollars for the
PUBLIC SPEAKING BANQUET
On the 13th of March, the Public Speaking Class gave a banquet in
honor of Mr. and Mrs. Wygant and Mr. and Mrs. Wilder. The color
scheme of pink and white was carried out in the centerpiece of carna-
tions, and the dainty place cards and menus. The members of the class
gave toasts and as a surprise, Miss Littell, the teacher, and the guests
of honor were called upon by Ethel Rowse, the toast-mistress.
After the basketball game with Lander, on March 14th, a reception
and dance was given in the High School gymnasium. The floor was
crowded with dancers, as this was the only dance after a game this
year. Excellent music was furnished by Mrs. Cook and her son, George.
In the pleasure of dancing and getting acquainted, all the sting of our
defeat was forgotten. The Lander boys proved to be good fellows, and
the friendly spirit between the two schools grew even stronger. When
"Home, Sweet Home" was played at half-past eleven, everyone parted
with feelings of deep regret.
DOMESTIC SCIENCE DINNERS
The Domestic Science classes will give their annual dinners to the
faculty and the School Board later in the year. Under the direction of
Miss Gardner, the dinners will no doubt be even more delicious and en-
joyable than ever before.

Mr. Bender, our physical training director, deserves much praise for
the way he has handled his work. He did not come to Casper until
December, but since then he has made up for lost time, and has shown
his ability as a coach. The basketball team has benefited a great deal
by his hard and earnest Work, and he has developed some real players
from the lower classmen and the grade school boys.
Glaptain Elngh Write C'1Hrire"J
Price is captain of the team, and a real basket shooter. He has stuck
to his job, and played every game. No matter how the other boys are
playing, Price can always be depended on to rattle his guard and to
make some baskets. We feel that he is indeed Worthy of his captaincy.
WILLIAM KOCHER-"Bill" .............................. Guard
Bill adds great weight to the team, and the man he guards realizes
it. When Bill gets mad he gets the ball. At his position of guard he is
unable to make many spectacular plays, but he always plays a steady,
ROBERT GRIEVE-"Bob" ................. . .............. Center
Bob at center has played a splendid game all year. He always
guards his man, and his long sensational baskets from the middle of the
floor have been a feature of every game. We predict great things for
him next year.
LAVERN MATHEWSON-"Matty" ........................ Guard
Matty is a real sticker at guarding, and the man who scores on him
is a good man, indeed. He is some jumper, and he always gets what he
DAVID KIDD-"Dave" .................................. Guard
Dave is a splendid guard, and is the only Freshman on the team.
Like all Freshmen who make good in the fight, he is popular with the
crowd, and he has done some things this year which merit that
LAURENCE QUINLAN-"Quinn" ......... . .............. Forward
Laurence is the only Senior on the team. He did not get into the
first of the fight, but he has made up for lost time. He is a splendid all-
around player, and one of the star forwards.
WILLIAM NICOLAYSEN-"Bill Nick" ................... Forward
Nick is one of the Sophomores who have made the team this year
and in spite of his height, or rather lack of it, he puts the ball where it
belongs. While he is small, he has speed and the determination which
will make him a star in his two more years of playing.
CLAIR BLANCHARD-"Okey" ......... . ................ Forward
Okey is small, but he'll grow, and he is by no means a minus quan-
tity. He goes into the game with a fighting spirit and keeps that spirit
until the end. He, too, is a Sophomore, and with Nick as a team mate,
he will do big things.
WESTON SPROUL-"Monk" ............................. Center
Monk has the look of a fighter, and when he goes after the ball he
gets it. We hope to see him playing next year, for he has the making
of a basketball man.
Freshman Team, Class Champions
The girls' basketball teams this year have been very active. At
the first of the year, the Freshmen and Sophomore girls organized their
teams and practiced twice a week. Toward the end of the year, the
Junior and Senior girls began to form their teams to try to defeat the
'Freshies' and 'Sophs,' who were becoming experts. At the end of the
basket ball season, the four class teams played final games to determine
who should have the championship. The Seniors played the Sopho-
mores, and the Juniors played the Freshmen. In the first game the
Sophomores won with a score of 3 to 0. In the second, the Freshmen
made their reputation with a score of 10 to O. The Freshmen then
played the Sophomores to decide the championship. The Freshmen
were victorious with a score of 7 to 6.
The line-ups are:
Seniors-Center, Ethel Rowseg forwards, Katherine Dessert, Lola
Miller, guards, Eilleen O'Mara, lone Wolcott.
Juniors-Center, Elizabeth Kidd, forwards, Helen Brossard, Ruth
Ulleryg guards, Ruth Servatius, Ruth Saltz.
Sophomores-Center, Gwendolyn Towle, forwards, Thelma Stew-
art, Agnes McDowell, guards, Margaret Speas, Ethel Seanor.
Freshmen-Center, Florence Eastman, forwards, Cora Likely,
Helen Woelfertg guards, Mary Stanko, Inez Seanor.
THE FRESHMAN TEAM
The Freshman girls have played hard all year, and at the end they
have been deservedly victorious. If they stick to the game, they will
have an all-star team when they are Seniors, and will show not only
the other classes what they can do, but other towns as well. We offer
them our sincere congratulations, with all good wishes for a future as
successful as this year has been.
Perhaps to the casual onlooker or someone who has not looked any
further into our season than the score book, it would seem that the
year had been something of a failure. But, indeed, this is not so, because
we can learn in no way other than by experience. It may be safely
stated that not one member of this year's team, excepting Gothberg, had
ever played High School Basketball with opponents from out of town.
The boys played hard and made a good showing in each game. It
must be remembered that they had as their opponents the best men in
the state because there were no games scheduled with teams who did not
play good fast basketball. The team made a trip south during the latter
part of February and had a fine time. Here again they learned much by
playing away from home and on floors strange to them. All of the teams
who played us at home and Whom we encountered away from home
were composed of very fine boys, and certainly it was al pleasure for our
men to meet and to play against them.
Although we were not victorious still some excellent material was de-
veloped during the season and with the grit and ability of this year there
ought to be produced a team that will, next year and in years to come,
make a name throughout the state for Natrona County High School. We
are not disappointed with the showing that has been made and have
backed up our boys until the last minute.
"The season begins next year."

In the military work an attempt has been made to emphasize the in-
formational phase rather than the purely disciplinarian features of the
drill. During the winter the schools of soldier, squad and company,
were given by the company officers. While the floor was rather small
for company drill, the oflicers selected such of the platoon movements
as could be executed in the limited space. The greatest test of discipline
occurs when a squad is being drilled by its own corporal, who seems so
like the rest of the men that it is easy to slight his command. In the
drills by the corporal, the company made the greatest improvements.
More time for school for the non-commissioned oiiicers was greatly
needed. Competitive squad drill has been started, but awards as to
the places won have not yet been made. With the advent of better
weather, more time is given to the larger close order movements, to ex-
tend order, and field work. Map work and tactical problems with
signalling from distances are next on the schedule. The company is
anxious for the arrival of a supply of ammunition so that work on the
range may soon be started.
