oAnnual, our last task "witlvin the

striven so diligently in l7eQoing us to
attain the high place that 'we as
Seniors represent---Sllr. Kerney.
O. C. KERNE Y
At the bottom of every structure must be a firm foundation in
order that the building may stand. So it is with our schooling
system in Newcastle. Mr. O. C. Kerney is the firm foundation that
keeps the schools well above the average. He came to Newcastle
at a time when he was needed badly and thru his careful guidance
our school system had advanced to a height where we are looked
up to as an excellent school. This can be attributed to Mr. Kerney
who has worked long and tireless to bring this about. He has also
been at the head of the system thru our four years of high school
and has helped us to become the biggest class ever graduated from
old N. H. S. He has been a true friend always willing to deal
squarely with us but at the same time requiring that we work
hard. It is therefore needless to say that we appreciate his help
and guidance. We take this opportunity of expressing apprecia-
tion for all he has done for us in our four successful years of high
school, and wish him success in the years to come.
A school annual is usually considered interesting to school pu-
pils only. But a high school publication in Newcastle should ap-
peal with equal enthusiasm to every citizen who wishes for prog-
ress in our schools.
The Annual is the literary effort of the workers in Newcastle's
greatest institution. The past five years have witnessed the col-
lapse of an oil boom and following it was a very serious financial
crisis-"hard times." But the local high school has continued to
send our graduates in increasing numbers each year, and also at a
decreasing cost to the taxpayers:
In 1922--13 graduates.
The 94 past tive years far outnumber the total of all
previous graduation since the'ifirIsti'66'mmencement in 1906. The
present class almost equals any two previous classes.
The Superintendent and entire Faculty take pleasure in com-
mending the 1926 Annual to both pupils and adults. May it carry
to parents and tax paying citizens a proper and sincere admiration
for the work of their public high school. To the graduates of
1926, may it carry through many future years memories of a
pleasant and proiitable school life.

We of the Staff take this opportunity of thanking the mem-
bers of the Faculty for the effort which they have put forth in
helping to get us through our four years of high school.
The members of the faculty for the year 1925-26 are:
Mr. O. C. Kerney-Superintendent.
Mrs. Ethel Graham-Principal and Math.
Mrs. Florence Coles-English. V
Miss Velva Lewi-s-Normal Training and Girls' Coach.
Mrs. Julia Gardiner-Commercial Department.
Mr. Edward Hoel-Coach and Manual Training.
Mr. Donald R. Sabin and Mr. Cooley-Agriculture.
Miss Grace Buchanan-Home Science Department.
To these teachers go much of the credit for the fact that our
class, the class of '26, is the biggest and best class that ever gradu-
ated from Newcastle High School. We sincerely hope that classes
to come may have the advantages of graduating under this facul-
ty. We feel that they have done more for us than any other single
element could possibly have done toward sending us away from
High School with the proper training and spirit. And we again re-
peat our heartfelt thanks to the faculty and wish them the best of
luck in the future.

History of the Seniors of '26
We began our Freshman year with an enrollment of 53, al-
most one half of the high school. It did not take us long to iind
that we were very, very, green. The Sophomores initiated us at a
party given in the old school building, and right then and there we
learned something about high school life.
The rest of the year was -spent in study, and the usual things.
A few weeks before school let out the high school was transferred
to the new school building, and in this we saw the close of our
Our Sophomore year was begun, and we were beginning to
feel like real members of the high school, since we were not the
greenest. We initiated the Freshmen at a party given in the new
gymnasium, and here we took out our revenge for the year be-
fore. This year a few parties were given, and the class spirit was
beginning to show. Our enrollment had dropped some, but still we
were the largest class in school. The Sophomores assisted the rest
of the high school in the operetta, "The Windmills of Holland."
The first part of our Junior year was rather quiet, until the
class tournaments began. With the tournaments began class
fighting. We won first in basketball and second in debate, and the
girls won second in basketball.
Then came the time for the basketball and debating teams to
go to Laramie. They both made good showings. The real class
fights began while the teams were in Laramie, 'but there were too
many Juniors for the Seniors. The rivalry was intense for a long
Then came the Junior play, "All a Mistake," on which we
cleared about seventy-five dollars. It was our year to put on the
Junior Senior banquet, and we spent nearly a week in preparation
of the gymnasium, and the many other things that had to be done.
The gym was decorated nicer than it ever had been before, and the
banquet was a grand success. So ended our Junior year. h
With the beginning of our Senior year we had an enroll-
ment of 29, which was still the largest class in school.
Class fighting was not prominent this year, and everything
was rather quiet. . The Senior play, "Getting Acquainted With
Madge," was a success and helped us financially on our annual.
May 15 the Junior Senior banquet was held, and here was our last
gathering of both classes in high school. There were 29 Seniors
from Newcastle, and one from Cambria at the banquet. A little
more studying, and then came commencement. So passed the
Seniors of '26. J. J. K.
MRS. ETHEL GRAHAM, PRINCIPAL
Mrs. Graham, our principal for the last three years, is one of
the best teachers that any student ever had. If we were permitted
to nickname our teachers her name would undoubtedly be, "Square
Deal" Graham. She has lived in the west long enough to become
embodied with that principle, of all true Westerners. "A square
deal for everyone." Naturally, believing in this, she deserves a
square deal from you and she's not expecting a thing too much. If
she ever "bawl.s you out" or in society "scolds or reprimands you"
think it over and just seehow easy it is to recall a recent disregard
for the school laws and remember that you have no right to break
them without being told about it. Everyone that ever was on the
listening end of a lecture or the receiving of a sharp reprimand can
say that he got just what he deserved and also that he got a
"square deal." Of course the corners on the square deals hurt but
that is only when we did a little more than is known or has been
seen and we are treated too nicely. The corners hurting is nearly
always the prickings of that little thing they call conscience.
Everyone has a conscience, though probably some people have less
than others. However, whether we belong to one class or the
other, we ought to know enough to appreciate what she does and
the way she does it and the many square deals that she gives us
during the grind that is 180 days long. As our class sponsor she
can not be surpassed. This is all that I can say about her, al-
though I suppose I could use words that neither I nor any other
student of my age would understand to express just how we feel
about her. Neither could we find word-s to express the thanks of
those whom she has helped so gloriously through their Senior year
-1926. ' E. L. R.
' In the District Court of Newcastle, before Judge O. C. Kerney,
we, the Seniors of 1926, do nobly and without malice aforethought,
hereby make this will, our last effort in the hope that all concerned
may be better by it. The Seniors have made great sacrifices in the
hope of helping the lower classmen and we hope that all who have
herewith received gifts will feel honored and try to live up to them.
PRESIDENT, BILL KLODT, desires to leave Frank Martin
his superfluous supply of wittiness when in the presence of ladies.
With this extra fortification Frank will reign supreme,-as School
, Katherine Storm wills to little Boo Grieves her extra strength.
and size, which she feels sure Harold can make good use of.
Elmer Rogers hereby leaves to Paul Gaido his ability to be-
come teacher's pet.
The two Dewey girls, Pearl and Lenarda, bequeath upon Joe
Zanoni their ability to get by without studying.
Lucile Roberts leaves Gerald Clinebell one-third of her ever-
increasing boisterousness and ability to find fault.
Erma Long bestows upon Bee Bennett her beauty, and
strategy she uses in getting dates. Red used most of the strate-
gem employed this year.
Daniel Webster, alias Glenn Bettis, wills to Floyd Hansen his
windiness in arguing on subjects unknown to him.
Ella Bock desires that her personal charm and daintiness be
left to Grace Mahnke.
Louis Kugland, he of the fiery temper, wills just a small part
of it to Miss Lewis as he thinks that she is far too good natured.
Mary Marquiss wills to Christina Freel her exceptional danc-
ing ability. Q
Susie Kudlock wills her extra gum fto be found in the first
seat in the first row of the Study Hallj to Clarence Culver.
Calvin Scott now puts in a good word for Leonard Hays, and
leaves his knowledge of the gentle art of bluffing to poor Skeezix.
Dorothy Sedgwick thought it only proper for Mrs. Gardiner to
have a small portion of her wonderful generosity and thoughtful-
ness for others. This is to be used when making out the report
Katharine Howell wills to Elizabeth Gaido her honesty in
handling class money. This is something to start out with in the
Rose Rockwell wills to June Frazine her knowledge of O. C.
Kerney hoping that this will come in handy to June next year.
Judge Kerney was struck with a violent fit of coughing at this
stage and it was necessary that Sue Horton will to him the ser-
vices of her father, Dr. Horton. Upon being remembered twice
the Judge immediately resumed court. '
Next George Pridgeon leaves to Harlan Williams his athletic
prowess expecting Harlan to make good use of it for Old N. H. S.
in 1926 and 1927. T
Not to be out-done, Ruth Kinney leaves to the entire Short-
hand class of. next year her exceptional ability along this line.
Virgil Mikesell wills to Tex Baldwin his school girl complexion
and his ability to dance the Charleston.
Lorena Weaver became more than kind-hearted and left her
talent as a piano player to Jessie Hinsdale, feeling that .she had
made enough use of it. - - , -
Beulah Keys leaves her ability as a basketball player to Mau-
rine Pleak. Maurine ought to feel honored -as Beulah is .giving
away something that only few can get. .
Marjorie Haines and Margaret Thoeming jointly will- to Na-
dine Storm their school teacher actions.
Art Sundstrom leaves his only talent Cacting the darn fooll to
Andy Ost. '
Louis Carr, the Senior Pugilist, affectionately wills to Charles
Yemington his famous left hook which has spelled defeat to so
many unfortunate people. l y .
Mary Schmitt desires that Parm Pickle be left her knowledge
of how to get along with the teachers. The secret, she declares,
lies wholly in letting them have their own way in everything.
Bill Dixon leaves his scientific interests along unscientific lines
to Hugh Johnson. -
Last but not least the Senior Class of 1926 wills to the Junior
Class of 1927 the good luck, gcod times, and knowledge, which we
have gained, hoping that they may have as successful a Senior
year as we have had.
SEALED this 15th day of April, 1926. .
P. S. Mrs. Graham, Senior Sponsor, wills to Miss Buchanan
her viciousness and ability to handle the unruly. J. T.
June 4, 1938.
Dear Mrs. Coles:
I was so glad to learn that your release from the sanitar-
ium had been obtained at last. It does seem that twelve years is a
long time to recover from a nervous shock. And to think that it
was all caused by your strenuous efforts with the English four
class of 1926! I know that the rest of the class regret it as much
as I and we are sending you to-day via way of air-mail a lace cap, a
pair of knitting needles, and a shawl. With are sincere hopes that
you may spend the rest of your life in peace.
When I was in New York about a month ago, attending the
Inter-National Medical Meeting I was delighted to meet a great
number of my former school mates.
The Medical Meeting was the guest of the New York organi-
zation at a banquet one evening. Afterward, hearing that Glenn
Bettis, the great violinist was in the city, we all-went to the con-
cert. As soon as it was over I went up to talk with him. You can
well imagine my surprise to find Bill Klodt there too! He has just
completed the trans-Atlantic bridge, and just happened to be in
the city for the concert.
Did you know that Lorena Weaver is Glenn's accompanist?
She and Glenn are making an around the world concert tour.
We all left the building together and as we were coming out a
photographer rushed up and took a snap of Glenn. I immediately
recognized him as Virgil Mikesel. He told us that he was on Kath-
erine Storm's newspaper staff. She is editor of the New York Sun
Early the next morning I went up to Katherine's office to see
her. She was unusually busy for two trans-atlantic passenger sea-
planes had collided in the night just outside the New York landing'
harbor. While there were none killed four were injured. And it
is quite a coincidence that two out of the four should be members
of our class. Louis Carr who was piloting one of the planes 'broke
his leg but is expected to recover. The great scientist, William'
Dixon, was returning from completing his research work in Ger-
many. He was a passenger on the incoming plane, and received a
fractured skull, it is very doubtful if he will recover. Wouldn't
that be terrible just on the verge of his completing his method for
removing ice from icicles.
The next night I went to see a musical comedy and you may
well imagine my surprise to recognize the lead as Erma Long.
And she was playing opposite Art Sundstrom. One of the main
features was a series of old time dances. They danced the Char-
leston and you can't imagine how quaint and queer it seemed.
In the morning the Medical Society made a tour of the hos-
pitals. When we came to the Greenpoint hospital the head nurse
seemed vaguely familiar. ' I asked who she was and learned that it
was Ella Bock. She has been there for almost four years.
When I returned to my hotel I was told that a lady was wait-
ing to see me. It was Katharine Howell, who is now president of
the,Bell Telephone System. She had learned that I was in the 'city
and had come to see me. We had quite a talk and I learned from
her that Mary Schmitt has just been installed as Dean of Women
at Stanford. And also that there was a Paramount picture play-
ing on Broadway in which Ruth Kinney was starred. We decided
that if we hurried we could just see it and then get back in time
for me to take a plane for Washington, D. C., for it was necessary
that I go there before returning home.
As soon as I arrived in Washington I went to see the Wyom-
ing Senator, Calvin Scott, in regard to some public health laws. I
was received in the outer office by his private secretary, and do
you know it was Rose Rockwell. I was surely surprised to see her
Calvin told me that only the day before Junior Thompson had
been appointed Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court.
He holds the record for 'being the youngest man ever appointed to
that responsible position.
I received that evening an invitation to a large reception to be
given by Dorothy Sedgwick. She is now one of Washington's so-
ciety belles and is noted for her brilliant entertainments.
Lucile Roberts, who is president of the First National Bank of
Washington, was also at the reception. She is the very first wom-
an to become a bank president and we may be justly proud of her.
Didyou know that the International Indoor Tennis Champion-
ship has been won by Margaret Thoeming? It is the first time
since Helen Wills was defeated that the title has belonged to an
Pearl Dewey was also in the city attending the Governors'
Convention. She was elected Governor of Wyoming last month.
However, I did not get to see her.
Elmer Rogers was in Washington at the time, outfitting his
party of archologists whom the government is sending to unearth
the ruins of some ancient city of India. It is a huge undertaking
and they expect them to be gone at least five years.
Oh, by the way, did you know that Louis Kugland went to
Australia some four or five years ago? He discovered a huge gold
mine. Now he simply makes Uncle Bim look like a cheap skate.
Since my business was completed in Washington I left within
a week and took a plane to Chicagog for I wished to visit the Na-
tional Stockmens' Convention that was being held there. George
Pridgeon was elected president for the coming year. He owns one
of the largest and most scientifically managed ranches in Wyom-
Lenarda Dewey was in Chicago giving a series of lectures
on her missionary work in China. I was sorry not to hear her,
but I had already been away longer than I could well afford, and
I found it necessary to leave at once.
I certainly enjoyed the trip and it was made doubly enjoy-
able by seeing so many of my old. class mates.
I suppose you know that Beulah Keys is married? She
was married almost a year ago and is living on a modern farm on
Mary Marquiss is teaching physics at the University of Wyo-
ming. I understand that next year she will be sent as an ex-
change professor to the University of California.
I heard that Marjorie Haines sold her chicken ranch last
week for. about S50,000.00, and that she will spend a year in
Really it is hard to believe that Newcastle is the same little
town. As soon as oil was -struck on the Howard dome, it started
booming and has never quit. It is by far the largest city in Wyo-
ming now and I hear there is some talk of moving the capitol here.
It has an especially fine school system, and you may be surprised
to learn that Lelia King is at the head of it.
Susie Kudlock is the head of a very smart millinery store in
I think that this is growing into a volume instead of a letter.

Although scarcely a year has passed since graduation, the
class of 1925 has already begun to scatter. Two of its. members
are out of the state -entirely. , Leo Aimonetto is attending
Sweeney's school at Kansas City, Bob Leas is working in the oil
fields of Oklahoma, near Okmulgee.
The class boasts of five school teachers: Caroline Taylor,
Mary Aimonetto, Ethlyn Kirby, Iva Smallwood, and Edith Carr.
The last four all have schools located conveniently near Newcastle,
making it possible for them to spend the week-ends in town. Caro-
line's work is in the southern part of the state, near Laramie.
Scott Kipping and Armin Cornelison represent the Agricul-
tural interest of the class. Scott is located on his father's ranch
on the prairie, near Four Corners. Armin helps keep the E V A on
Beaver Creek running. ' ' A
Fred Martin, Vincent Washburn, and Paul Davison are at-
tending the University of Wyoming at Laramie. Marion Snyder
also attended the U. for a time and Marvin Shank recently re-
turned from there. S ' C '

Newcastle High School Football Squad '25-'26
ATHLETICS OF 1926
Newcastle football team met with only fair success during the
past year. The team was made -up largely of inexperienced men
who proved to be natural football players. From last year's squad
only six remained in school to form the backbone of the team.
The men left were: Bennett, Grieves, Snyder, Pridgeon, Rogers
and Baldwin. Besides these boys, Bettis, Klodt, Mikesell, Mead,
Ost, Thompson, Sigler and Pickle came out. Some of the boys had
no experience but were willing and worked hard. These fboys
would make fine players if they had another year of experience.
The lineup finally selected was: Ends--Rogers, Klodt and Mike-
sellg Tackles-Mead, Snyder and Baldwing Guards-Sigler and
Ostg Center-Bennettg Quarterback-Thompsong Left Half-Bet-
tisg Right Half-Grievesg Captain and Fullback-Pridgeon.
Gillette at Newcastle T
Our first game was with Gillette, our ancient rival. The team,
made up largely of green men playing their first game, had no
fight with the exception of one or two backfield men. Many subs
were put in on the local squad but no combination were made that
acquired co-operation. When the final whistle blew the score
board showed up plainly, Gillette 12, Newcastle 0. Our captain, G.
Pridgeon, had a rib broken in this game.
Newcastle at Sundance
There was a slight cold wind blowing when we played at Sun-
dance. Sundance got the jump on us and the final score was Sun-
dance 25, Newcastle O. Pridgeon was greatly handicapped in this
game by injuries received in the Gillette game. By this time the
team was known as "Hoel's Scoreless Eleven." .
Newcastle at Gillette
This game was played on a very disagreeable day and under
very disagreeable. conditions.: The mud was ankle deep and pools
of water were standing all over the field. The team was in fighting
trim. A luck break gave Gillette her 6-0 victory. We upheld our
title of "Hoel's Scoreless Eleven." The team felt the loss of Klodt,

'T ddii Boys' Basketball Team, 1926
On January 8 the Newcastle boys and girls metrMoorcroft for
the first game of the season.-' The girls team upheld -their former
prestige by coming out on the long end of a 35 to 21 score. 'The
girls worked hard for their score the first half and in the last
frame they didn't have to go so fast, but they kept the score out
of their opponent's reach.
The boys game was fairly fast and many or maybe all of the
Hrst team-men old and new, learned many lessons to be remem-
bered in future games. The local squad played only at intervals
but we. won on a score of 25 to 10.. The inconsistency ofthe team
may have been due to the fact that this Was our first game. Who
knows-? Q '
Newcastle vs. Sundance
With a week's practice between our first and second game we
felt that we could give Sundance a run for their money. As they
have no girls team our girls did not get to make. the trip. They
don't know how lucky they were as we had to go from Upton in a
bob-sled. This trip was long and very tiresome although we had
some real fun while it lasted. With nothing between the start of
the sleigh-ride and the game but two eggs and some toast we went
into the game feeling that something was going to happen which
had not yet been done to us- by the Sundance basketball team. I
don't mean that we said we were going to get walloped but maybe
we thought something like that was going to happen, and it did,
We played as hard as they did but not at the right times is the Way
I have it calculated by now. We got a square deal all around and
got beat by a score of 14 to 12. This is not bad but it could just as
well have been reversed. Sundance was pretty well all in after the
game and so were we as might be known. We hope the boys next
year have as enjoyable a trip as we did but that they do the thing
that we failed in doing. fBeat Sundance! .
Newcastle vs. Gillette
January 23, 1926.-On this fateful night the girls played their
usual good game and showed that our most ancient rival could not
put anything over on them in the way of basketball playing. Gil-
lette has a mighty fine girls' team and they show some good coach-
ing but ours seem to be more advanced in experience and floorwork
and passing. While "Spikes" was the high point player of this
game Lizzie and Katharine Howell did some of the best floorwork
and passing that has been seen on the home floor for many a day.
Our guards kept Gillette from getting many baskets by just play-
ing straight hard basketballg this does-n't mean that it was a rough
game which it was decidedly not. ' Our girls won by a margin of
fourteen points or in other words 34 to 20.
The game between the local squad and the visitors from the
rival city of Gillette put forth one of the best games that has ever
been played on the home floor. Also the teams were more evenly
matched than has been the case for several years. At the end of
the first half the home team led by a margin of 7 points. Gillette
came back strong in the last half and maybe we weakened but any
way they started to run up points from any position on the court.
Girls' Basketball Team, 1926
Some of the most spectacular shots ever seen by the local rooters
were made during this game. 'At the end of the third quarter the
score was tied up by 20 all. The fourth quarter came to a close
with the score tied at 26 all. As a result of this an extra period
was played which resulted in another tie, 33 to 33. Another extra
period was decided upon and while we only made 2 baskets Gillette
made 3 and won the game by the score of 39 to 37.
Sundance vs. Newcastle -
January 30, 1926.-After a long and tiresome ride the Sun-
dance boys got here and we had our .set-to about half an hour af-
ter their arrival. ' Before each half of the game we were the audi-
ence to a couple of good strong lectures given by former and pres-
ent basketball men who know. We had a good lead until the be-
ginning of the last quarter when we became suddenly stricken
with some sort of adhesive laziness and let them run up 11 points
while all We made was a measely lield goal. However, the final
score was in our favor: Newcastle 17g Sundance 16. Our boys
played some of the best defense work of the season in this game.
Time after time the Green 8: White had to go back in front of our
lines and get a new start.
Newcastle at Gillette
This was a pretty good game although one of our regular
guards was sick and could not play his best. The score was tied
at 5 all at the end of the half. No long spectacular shots were
made in this game which goes to show what either team is capable
of. Many times their forwards would come around our guards un-
noticed and shoot for a basket which in many cases was good for
two points. The final score was 19 to 16 in favor of Gillette. Af-
ter the game someone was heard to say that the Newcastle boys
had something that they didn't let go of 3 maybe that is so 5 no one
When we got home everybody wanted to know what was the
matter with the girls. This was only natural because our girls'
basketball team had lost a game. They have won so many games
that everyone thought that they couldn't lose, but they did. Gil-
lette's baskets seem to be diierent from ours and our girls couldn't
make many of their cinch shots. Our basket shooting trio of girls
had the ball most of the time but although they would get shots
which, ordinarily would have been good for two points, were good
for nothing. The only explanation offered is that the long-tri-
umphant girls' basketball team of Newcastle had an ofl' night for
the first time in two years. That is not bad at all. The final score
was: Gillette 26 and Newcastle 19.
Newcastle at Rozet
Although Rozet has no regular girls team that annually
schedules games with other schools they surely can put out a good
pick-up team to play a team that is going thru their town and
wants a game. Our girls team did some very fine passing and floor
work in this game. Rozet has a small floor but our girls worked it
as if' they had played on it all their life. The Rozet girls scored in
the last half enough to only let our girls have a one point lead
when the whistle blew.- The score was 12 to 11 in our favor. This
is the closest score for the girls this season.

Stock judging Team at Laramie
This is the first year that Newcastle has ever been represent-
ed at the State High School Vocational Livestock and Grain Judg-
ing Contest, which is held every January at Laramie under the au-
spices of the Agricultural Department of the University. During
the two strenuous days of judging, nine classes of livestock and
several classes of the leading varieties of corn and potatoes were
When the total scores of the various schools were determined,
Newcastle was given iirst place and a -beautiful loving cup for hav-
ing the highest score in the Agronomy division. This was possible
only because of the consistency of -the work of all three men 'on
the team.. Ova Yemington was high point man of the Grain Judg-
ing division with the other two men crowding him close..
Newcastle also had the honor of being high team on judging
dairy cattle, thereby being entitled to represent Wyoming at the
National Contest at the National Dairy- Exposition which will be
held in Detroit in October. I
In the livestock division as a whole Newcastle ranked fifth,
the top six teams being very close in total scores. .
Newcastle was known as the dark horse of the Contest, it be-
ing rather a surprise to everyone that the boys could do so well
having so little material with which to work. However, it is hoped
that after this splendid start, that each succeeding team will be
able to equal or better this year's performance.
The team was coached by D. R. Sabin, who at that time was
the Instructor in Vocational Agriculture.
Following is a list of individual winningsz.

Work was accomplished last year by several boys of the AG. Class
on the projects. Our motto is: "Before you try to tell others how'
to do a thing, be sure you can do it well yourself."
Several of the boys proved they were-able to tell others how
to raise poultry. At any rate they sent their best species to the
State Fair at Douglas and received high prizes for the same. When
members of this club Went to Laramie last fall they brought back
the grand prize in grain and potato judging which was a fine silver'
cup. They also won first place as individual judges. This honor-
was given to Ova Yemington.

DEBA TIN G
The usual interest was not shown in debating this year until
the season was too far over for all classes to enter the Tourna-
ment. The Sophomores and Seniors were the only classes to enter
teams in the class tournament. The first debate resulted in a tie
vote, on the question of organizing our defense forces so as to have
a separate department for air. In the second debate the Senior
team composed of Glenn Bettis, Junior Thompson, and Calvin
Scott earned a 2 to 1 decision over the Sophomores. William Ost,
Ova Yemington and Parm Pickle were the runners-up for the title.
In other words they were the members of the Sophomore Team.
After the class debates a squad of four was selected to work
on the state question dealing with Child Labor. From this squad
Junior Thompson and Calvin Scott were chosen to represent the
school at the Tournament-at Laramie during tournament week,
March 15 to 23, at Laramie. Even tho they were eliminated the

Down in the mouth of the alley
An elephant lay asleep.
The Wildcats moaned in the parlor,
The lions murmured peep-peep.
1 The coal scuttle ran through the hallway
Chased by grandfather's clock,
A centipede played the organ,
A dinosaur circled the block.
Four hundred thousand cooties
Played leap-frog over a chair,
While a bald-headed man, with a shoe in his mouth,
Sat complacently combing his hair.
From out of the depth of the chimney
Came a hippo's well-known scream 5
And a bright red rabbit with sixteen legs
Chased a green cat away from its cream.
As I took my bath in the coal bin
I saw a trolley car born,
And I vowed by the left hand of Pluto
To stay sober and stop drinking corn.

Just before this game the N. H. S. squad received some very
nicely directed remarks from the Director in regard to our past re-
cent training. Needless to say these said remarks went home and
stuck there. These remarks seemed to put pep into us and for the
first time in a long time we went into the game and fought from
the first instead of in the last quarter as has usually been the case.
This doesn't mean that we didn't fight in the last quarter because
we didg we had to, to keep the Rozet boys from running up a win-
ning score. In the opinion of some this game was the one in which
our boys did the best all-around playing done this season. M-
and Boo are to be praised for their strict and careful guarding in
this game. Time and again Rozet took the ball down the floor only
to have it taken away by our guards. These two boys played a
game that they will always remember and that their team mates
will never forget. They guarded so well that Rozet only made two
free tosses and of course they couldn't guard themg if they could
have Rozet would never have made them. The Rozet boys are re-
ported to have been victorious over some of the strongest teams in
the northern part of the state on their own floor so their loss to us
helps us some in our home support. The final score was: Them:
25 Us: 13.
Newcastle at Moorcroft
This game was rather fastg some mighty fine passing and
floorwork being done on both sides. However, our goal shooters
got away early in the game and began dropping the ball thru for
counters. While Spikes and Lizzie are the high point girls on the
team many and most of their short shots are made from a pass
from their running mate, Katharine Howell. She is everywhere in
the game and gets that ball nearly every good chance she has.
The girls ran up their usual high score again, the final count being
Newcastle 35 and Moorcroft 15.
, Boys- T
This was an easier game than the first game we played the
time before. We got away in the first quarter and kept our lead
thruout the game, increasing it all the time. We fouled more than
usual in this game but no one went out on personal fouls, which
shows that our men can keep from fouling if they know it is nec-
essary. The final score was Newcastle 27 and Moorcroft 4.
Newcastle at Upton
On the Saturday night following the Moorcroft game we fthe
boysb stopped at Upton and proceeded to show their town team
how to play basketball. Going by hearsay we were looking for-5
ward to a tough old game because Upton was supposed to have
some old heads playing for them. They may have had all right'
but they hadn't started to practicing soon enough to get back all
the stuff' they had had when they went to school. We really ex-
pected to have to let looseall the basketball knowledge we ever had
to win over these fellows but as it finally came out the condition
was just the reverse. They were the ones to brush up on their
playing ability. The telling count was Upton 3, Newcastle 33.
We were shown a good example of what some trainirfg will do to
make basketball players out of boys or meng Upton started to sub-'
stitute in the latter part of the first quarter because of wind, while
we were not even puffing. ' ' T Q U
Rozet at Newcastle
. Feeling none too sure of' the victory the local squad went out
to win. The team was much hampered by the sickness of Mead,
regular guard. However, Bettis, in his place played a good game.
It seemed as if something was the matter with each local player
that night. Not that any one in particular did not play a good
'une because they all did, but that each one had some part of him
not up to normal. Some one had a badly skinned knee and some
one else had a strained muscle in his ankle. However, every one
went into the game for all he was worth. Rozet's boys were out to
win and so it promised to be a good game, and it was. They start-
ed out and ran up some points so fast that we didn't know which
basket was first and which one was last. Then we tightened up
and they didn't do that any more. They made most of their points
on free throws.
The Rozet boys play a very clean game and they play to win
only by fair means. It seems that they never fouled during either
one of our games with them. It was'r1't long before we commenced
to scoring and having once obtained the lead we never let them get
it again. The score that went to the newspaper was in favor of us
which read Newcastle wins. over Rozet by a score of 36 to 20.

Cambria at Newcastle
The night before we went to the Gillette Tournament Cambria
came down and the local squad treated their supporters to a very
poorly played basketball game on our part anyway. It seemed to
us and the crowd that we had forgotten every bit of coaching we
ever had and just ran around wild. In the first of the last quarter
a substitute was sent in for the regular center and the playing was
speeded up considerably. After the smoke of the encounter
cleared away the figures on the score-board loomed up into sight.

In the week that followed the Seniors made a record of which
every member in the class has a reasonto 'be proud. They were
victorious in all their games, having defeated the basket ball teams
of every class. This is an honor that no class has had heretofore,
and the Seniors are justly proud of--it.
The class also showed its ability as basket ball players in the
games with the neighboring High School teams, as a large percent-
age of the players were Seniors. Katharine Howell, Lucile Rob-
erts, Margaret Thoeming, Beulah Keys and Erma Long represent-
ed the Senior girls on the team and George Pridgeon, Bill Klodt,
Elmer Rogers, Glenn Bettis and Louis Kugland were staunch sup-
porters of the Senior boys.
The Senior boys were equally as well represented on the Foot-
ball team as several of the "star players" were Seniors. .
The girls of the class loyally agreed to 'enlarge the Class fund
by serving at one time the Lions Club and later the 'Republican
Central Committee. By this means several dollars were added to
the treasury. C '
