HE Board of Education may, by the attitude it takes toward a school,
445 . . . . .
cause it to grow and prosper or to fail. Realizing this fact the
g V citizens of Norman have selected five worthy men to act as "fathers"
in " for our schools.
The present board was elected four years ago. lt's work during the
two years of its first term was so efhcient that it was re-elected, without any
changes, to serve a second term. The- city of Norman is represented on
this board by Professor Shannon, Mr. Reed, Mr. Poster, and Mr. Pendleton.
The outlying district is represented by Mr. Shives.
These men have labored under great difficulties while building up Nor-
mans schools to their present efficient condition. They have met with
many perplexing problems but have always shown themselves equal to any
Two years ago the condition of the jefferson school rendered it unfit
for further use. The old structure-was torn down and a modern building
was constructed on the unit plan. lt is a model of economy and efficiency
and is second to none in the state as a public school.
To accomodate the increasing size of the Manual Training and Domestic
Science departments, an annex was constructed and now these departments
are located in a spacious, well equipped building.
ln the early fall the Washington school was destroyed by fire. At the
present time the board is contemplating the construction of a building similar
to the jefferson building.
Not only has the board shown wisdom in the construction of buildings
but also in the selection of teachers. There are now 36 men and women em-
ployed as teachers in the Public Schools of Norman.
ln all its actions and deliberations the board has shown that it has the
good of the schools at heart. lt has wisely regulated student social activities
so that students may enjoy social functions but not at the expense of their
grades. The state laws concerning the smoking of cigarettes has been rigidly
enforced as has the law pertaining to fraternities and sororities.
ln accordance with the wishes of the government the board has institu-
ted a week of six days to conserve fuel and to allow the students an oppor-
tunity to work on the farms in the spring. lt has required that students
wear simple but yet servicable clothes. This has resulted in a great saving
hnancially and has caused the growth of a spirit of democarcy among the
student body. lt has caused the students to realize the seriousness of the
present conflict and has urged the school to help as much as possible in this
great crisis. Through its efforts a War Thrift Savings Club has been formed.
lvlembers of the board have been present on various occasions and have de-
livered addresses which were both entertaining and instructive. It has
arranged for co-operation between the schools and churches of the city in
giving credit for work done in the Bible schools.
In behalf of the student body we extend our most sincere thanks to
the Board of Education for what it has done in building and maintaining
Normans Public schools.

pgfwgg SCHOOL is judged by its faculty as well as by its student body. Consequently
W? 'fail we have no fear as to how our school will be judged. Although we had one of
the best faculties in the state last year we believe we have one equal. if not su-
' perior, to it although only one member of that faculty is with us this year. Never
' " . has Normal High School had a faculty that took so much interest in student
activities and was so willing to aid us. Much of the progress we have made this year has been
due to its efforts and many hitherto impossible things have been accomplished. Neither
have our teachers been lacking in patriotism. They have been among the first to make the
numerous campaigns of the winter. Two of them have joined the colors. As they have
meant so much to us we feel that The Trail would be incomplete should we fail to tell some-
thing of each one. .
Mr. N. H. Edwards, superintendent of our city schools. has greatly improved the schools
during the four years that he has been with us. He has successfully terrorized four classes
of Freshies by his penetrating stare and never failing sarcasm. As the years roll by, how-
ever, they discover that he is almost human.
Mr. Meredith Robbins, our High School principal. and Music Director, has succeeded
in ?aching most of the students of Norman High School some songs besides "Flow Gently
Sw et Afton." Not content with this great achievement he is teaching them to find the "Puri
of Great Price." He has, however, one weakness which he cannot overcome-the habit of
talking rapidly. lt has been carefully estimated by the members of the Physics class that
the sound waves issue forth from his vocal chords with a velocity which surpasses that of the
latest aeroplanes and with a constancy that surpasses that of the latest perpetual-motion
Miss Grace Marshall has done more than teach the fundamentals of Rhetoric. She
has carried to a successful end many school functions. She has coached several plays and
has done much for the Red Cross. lncidentally she has taught the Seniors the correct pro-
nunciation of "literature" but, unfortunately, has not been so successful with "nature"
Guy...l..a.c.k.qchas been Debating Coach and Philomathean Sponsor and was instru-
mental in putting out an excellent team. He is striving that his fame and theories may
be handed down to the coming generations through the medium of the future teachers of
Mr. Livingstone has worked industriously this year as is indicated by the noise that comes
forth from the west end of the Annex.
Miss Ruth Wickman has gained for herself the title of "good sport" by her willingness to
enter into student activities. She is a good cook as is indicated by the odors that come
forth from the east end of the Annex.
Mr. Edward Davis has taken much interest in the students and has always been willing
to help them. He also has one fault which is just contrary to that of Mr. Robbins-talking
too slowly. The Physics students are at work on an accelerator for him.
Mr, O. K. Garretson has particular charge of the midyear Freshmen. He is teaching
them considerable slang in connection with Composition, He is also known to have a quick
pMiss Barbara Shlabach has made herself one of Norman's most popular. teachers by her
never failing good humor and sympathy. She was never known to be angry.
Mr. Chester Beaird obtained some of his education at N.H.S. and, consequently, is a
good teacher. Much of his debating knowledge, for which he is famous, was also acquired
here. Having been so recently a student himself. he can easily understand the students.
Mr. bl. E. Smith has taken a great interest in the junior Class and aided them in their
play and other activities. For some time in September it was supposed he was a new pupil.
He favorite adage is, "Never do today what you may do tomorrow."
Miss Kate Barbour has been Y. W. C. A. sponsor and it is due to her influence that the
Y. W. C. A. has accomplished so much. She has no regard for the last bell but keeps the
hungry Sophs. far into the noon hour at times.
Mr. W. O. Rothwell has caused a great dispute to arise in N.H.S. lt is whether or not
he is the laziest man in the world. The majority of the students believe he is and he even
admits it. He is. however. speedy on the typewriter.
Miss Nina Keiger is noted for her sweet disposition and fondness for Latin nouns. How-
ever, it is rumored that a Black cloud hovers over her future fand presentl. '

'R EPOCH 1
lt was a motley array of tender young Freshmen who entered in
September, 1914. We were strangers with no resemblance to each other
except knee trousers, short dresses, and towsled headgears.
Very shortly there appeared among us leaders in almost every student
activity. It was one of the most successful Freshman classes that has ever
been registered in the annals of our school. Many things happened that
year but they are too numerous and happened too long ago to be mentioned
At the beginning of 1915 we found ourselves advanced to the degree of
Sophomores. We organized with the following class officers: President,
Dewey Fosterg Vice-President, William I-lowardg Secretary-Treasurer, Ger-
trude Sidener. At this time we began to feel the yearning for fame, and, as
athletics was the one place where fame might be won, it was literally "swamped"
by the Sophomores. Many of our men filled very important places on the
football, track, and basketball teams.
The beginning of the term of 1916-1917 found us back to resume our
studies in school and each one of us strove to do his or her part in making
for ourclass the brilliant record which the class of 1918 is leaving.
A mighty class were we but why attempt to explain? As we glance down
the list we see the name of Earl Bartholomew who was our worthy President
lf we look again we see the names of football players who belonged to our
noble class-William l-lowarcl fCaptain of the teamj, Dewey Foster, George
McDaniel, and Elmer Wails.
Now we have arrived at the eventide of our school life. Our numbers
have decreased from 1 10 to 57 but it has been a battle for the survival of the
fittest. Though we were strangers in the beginning we have become thoroughly
acquainted and have learned to love our school, our classmates and associates.
It is unnecessary to mention our brilliant success as a class for we are
thinking mostly of our graduation and separation from our Alma Mater. Our
thoughts are for the future. We are going we know not where. Some may
be called to defend our country as a few have been called already, others
to prepare for the manifold tasks of life. Briefly we have sketched our ex-
perience. We call it history but before us enshroudecl in oblivion is a thought
more severe. Concerning this we cannot speak for we have not experienced
that of which we are thinking.
We have endeavored, during our sojourn here, to brighten school life
and make it pleasant for those who are to follow. We have lived four years
in the most congenial surroundings. Other affairs and courses are about to
claim us but we shall always retain the tenderest love and fondest remem-
berance of our Alma lvlater.

SCENE: Dinner in Major Furr's Apartments
Arline, as hostess of the dinner, acts as Toastmaster.
Arline. i'Now that we are all together once more I suggest that we start at the right
and have each tell about whom he has met since the night of the graduating exercises. '
Florence. "Well, since I left Old N.I-I.S., I spent four years at O.U. and went from there
to Vassar with Nadine Runyan who has since married Travis Baker, manager of the United
Sales Company. I have not married as I suppose you all know. Minnie Baker is now in-
structor Of Eloeution in Corbett's Seminary. We were at Vassar three years, after which
we came back to Nadine and Travis' wedding.
"After that Billie and I went to a nurses' school at St. Louis for two years! We then
saw active service in France and Germany. We, or rather Billie, met a young aviator named
Knighton who was no other than our old schoolmate, Louis Knighton. Billie-well you
can see how that romance ended. I helped Billie secure her release so she could marry Louis.
Louis got an honorable discharge on account of his injuries.
"I was transferred to Essen,C1ermany, where I had a chance to smell the powder and
see the smoke of the battle. Warren I-Iudgens was a dare-devil, one-armed ambulance driver
at the hospital where I worked. His arm has been shot Off by a stray Boche shell. I-Ie is
now at home selling sewing machines and helping Ruby take care of the children. I have
not met many of the students but I am sure Merle has."
Merle arose and cleared his throat as usual and prepared for a long speech. "I never
was much on talking anyway. I always got stage fright when addressing a group of people
that I knew were as intelligent as Iam.
"After spending four years at Chicago Law School, I hung my shingle in Little Rock
and began the practice of law which was not very profitable as I could not get any clients
or, rather, 'suckers' Failing to make ends meet I entered politics and was elected justice
of the Peace. While I was in that office I had the honor or extracting five dollars from Frank
Brewer for marrying him and -Pauline Greenshields. They live near Linsdale, Arkansas,
and raise strawberries for a living.
"I was appointed United States Commissioner for the Western District of Arkansas. I
presided at George Nemeceks trial for selling "Moonshine" whiskey and I am glad to say
that I pronounced him not guilty. George is back in Norman running a jitney line.
"This case gave me so much prominence that I was elected to the I-louse and am now
Senator from Arkansas. I must close. It gives me great pleasure to introduce Mrs. Billie
Billie. "Florence told all of my history up to the time that Louis and I were married.
We have settled on a 'Blue Grass' farm in Kentucky. We just happened up here and came
to see Arline. She told me about this luncheon and here we are. Louis says he does not
want to talk so I will introduce the greatest Prima Donna of the age, Dorothea Langford.
Dorothea. "Most of you know me as Dorothea Langford but off the stage I am Mrs.
Lynne Geyer. Lynne would be here tonight were it not for a business trip to Boston. I-Ie
is my manager.
"I have met a few of the old school mates during my tours. Irene Ambrister is editor
of 'Cupid's Dartf a matrimonial magazine. Dale Scruggs and Elmer Walls are running a
theatre in Danville, Illinois. Dale has married Viola Stoner since I sang in their theater.
Carl jackson is running a pawn shop in Chicago. Louise I-Iayden and what used to be Lottie
Levy live in Louisville, Kentucky. Louise is teaching Domestic Science in the I-Iigh School
and Lottie is raising a harness makers family. I visited George McDaniel and family while
I was in St. Louis the other day. I-Ie is working for Ford and has some family. This is all
that I can think of just now. Oh yes, I will introduce Mr. Barton Jamison."
Barron. "It sure does me good to be back here with all these old acquaintances. I am
back herein New York to buy the supplies fora new refineryin South America. Dwight Patton
is my chief geologist and also general manager while I am away. Dwight came 'home and
married Vivian I-Iollingsworth last Christmas. They live on Pepper I-Iill, Rio de Janeiro.
Everett Ogborn is working for Montgomery Ward Co. I-Ie married a junior girl after her sol-
dier failed to come back. I have not hadachance to see many of the old N.I-I.S. students.
As Bonnie has, I shall let her talk,"
Bonnie. "I spent four years at Texas University and then went to a girl's school in
New York. Okla and I were married in New York and sailed at once to France where Okla
worked as doctor in a hospital until the end of the war. Then we sailed for home and landed
in New York yesterday. I suppose that I need not introduce Okla as you all know him."
Okla. "I, like the rest of them, went to O.U. for four years. After four years there,
I took two years of clinic work at'Columbia. Bonnie and I were married and sailed at
once for France. I was chief doctor at the base hospital in I-Iaigster, France.
"I have not met many of the old 'gang' except Francis Floyd who was taken to the hos-
pital to have some glass taken out of his face. It had been blown there by some new gas
which he had invented. Robert came to see him while he was there. Bill said Robert was
the Rector in a little church around the corner but he could not come here tonight as he had
a wedding to 'pull offf These are the only ones that I have met so I will introduce Miss
Marguerite jones, matron of the Fleming Girl's Seminary." .
Marguerite. "I am matron of a girl's seminary. I like the work very much but am living
in a dream of hopes till next june when Clarence Spiller and I will be married. Clarence is
President of the National Hobo Association with headquarters in Denver. Last Christmas,
when I was on a trip to the south. I was in Texarkana and visited George Davis and wife,
the latter being Iola I-Iaswell. George is Superintendent of the City Schools of Texarkana.
Dorothy Miller and Minerva Alexander are both teaching in these schools. They teach
the Primary grades and Music respectively. I saw Bernice Brooks in Oklahoma City. She
is bookkeeper for the Martin Lumber Co., Ella Polk and Pearl Fox are teaching moonlight
schools in Cleveland County. I think that I have mentioned all that I have met so I will
introduce Bill I-Iowardf'
Bill. "I have roamed over a large part of the United States and have met all kinds of
people. I spent four years in Missouri, then I secured an appointment in the Indian Office
as an agent. In the office I saw Dovie Brown who is a typist in that ohcice. I was sent to
Idaho to see about some land and there I saw Walter Furbee and I-Ienry Clanton. They
Own a sheep ranch. Clarence Wilson is the cook on the 3Q ranch in New Mexico. Fred
Taylor and wife, Dorine Guthrie, are running a summer resort in Colorado. I-Iattie Poyntz
Moomau will marry Raymond Saxon next june. She has worked four years on her trousseau.
They will be married on the day that the McDowell dam is dedicated. They will be at home
in Virginia in November. Earl Bartholomew is the designer and Raymond Saxon the con-
structor of the McDowell dam.
"Oh yes, I met Clyde Cottrell the other day. I-Ie is conductor on the Denver Limited.
I guess I had better let old jawn talk a while. I-Iave always heard it said that a bachelor is
last so I will let Raymond have it."
Raymond. "I went from N.I-I.S. to Annapolis where I secured a commission as Lieutenant
of the Marines. I have had four years of life on the sea and some experience on the land.
One day while I was in Tampa, Florida, I met Walter Sadler and Oma Edwards who are
married and living very happliy, ' They are in a 1
"Pardon me." said Bill, "We have just three minutes to get around the corner to Lee
Cathey and Laura Steele's wedding, so let's hurry."
They all rushed out and arrived just in time.

Our Debating Cup!
ilfistory of tba Ilunior Class
l-lE history of all great events must have a beginning. Gurs began
with the calling of classes on September 14, 1915. As little hungry
birds just hatched from the eighth grade, we feasted upon Latin,
English, Algebra, and Science, in order that we might be filled
We won high honors upon the gridiron, in inter-class basketball, and on
the track. Although we defeated the Sophomores in debating, we were
in turn defeated by the juniors.
Our first mile on the road to fame was one of many hardships, but it
prepared for our rise in our Sophomore year. As Sophomores we were un-
surpassed in debating. We were the first to establish Sophomore Day in
Norman l-ligh School. On this eventful day our hearts were filled with pride
at the presentation of the Debating Cup to us, the winning class. As Sopho-
mores we made an advance in the Sophomore section ofThe Trail by having
individual pictures. We were represented in the State Oratorical Contest.
ln our junior year we won the prize of twenty-five dollars in the cotton
picking contest. This shows our ability physically as well as mentally.
Having established our standard in debating we placed two of our men on
the State Debating Team. We obtained a decision of three to nothing
over the Seniors. We hope to gain the decision over the Freshmen. We shall
be represented in the State Dratorical Contest by Roy Smith and Subert
Turbyfill. We hope they will carry off the honors for our school. Our class
was well represented on the athletic field, placing several men on the Foot-
ball Team. The following have enlisted in the Navy: Ray Reed, Lawrence
Snapp, Falkner Curtis, and W. B. Stevenson, our last years sponsor.
Nextyearwill beourlastyear in dear old Nl-l.S. As Seniors let us make
one grand effort to make a record that will surpass that of all other classes
that have graduated from Nl-l.S.
We dedicate these pages to our class sponsor, Mr. J. E. Smith, who has
done so much to make us a successful class.

Tlfistory of tba Sophomore Class
NCE upon a time on a bright sunshiny .day in the fall of 1916 a group
I of carefree girls and boys waited anxiously on the steps of Norman
l-ligh School. As we entered tremblingly we looked around and
e' 'A took note of what was to be our battlefield for the next four years.
Enrollment seemed a process never ending under the stern gaze of the teachers
Whom We looked meekly upon, not daring to say a word, We sighed for the
days ghgt were gone when we were permitted to chew gum and throw paper
wgdg 301-oss the room with impunity, Besides this we resented the attitude
gf the upper classmen who were always referring to our ardent color and
pointing to our supposed inferiority. However our patronizing upper class-
men began to take notice when the "little green Freshiesn were able to put
several men on the gridiron.
Two years have passed, and, notwithstanding our terrors, there have
been few casualties and these were occasioned by the Eighth l-lour Study l-lall
and the Demerit System, As Sophomores we have simply expanded. After
all a Sophomore is much more experienced than a Freshman. We have dis-
tinguished ourselves greatly in athletics, furnishing a goodly number of foot-
ball men as well as baseball stars. ln the religious and literary societies we
are second to none. As to thc quality and earnestness of our work we invite
inspection by our most envious rivals. lwlodesty lorbids a further enumera-
tion of our virtues. Spring is upon us and vacation draws near. Please
vacate your seats juniors.
Of all the classes in l-ligh School,
The one that will always rank first,
ls the old Sophomore
Of '20 lore,
And that's what l like about us.
For athletes that are strong and courageous,
CPlease juniors we don't want a cus' :D
ls the old Sophomore,
Of '2Oth lore,
And thats what l like about us,
For girls that are pretty and dainty,
l just mention this for l must,

Of 20th lore,
And that's what l like about us.

NE bright September afternoon, as Mr. Robbins glanced out of his
' office window, he saw a tiny speck moving slowly in the distance.
As it drew nearer and it grew larger and larger and soon developed
into a multitude of quiet and orderly young people. By our per-
sonal appearance he thought we were Freshmen but because of our unusually
good behavior he believed we were a more advanced class. We immediately
formed a line, with no shoving or pushing, and marched around for inspection
and enrollment by Mr. Robbins.
Our class numbered about one hundred at the end of the first week but
some have dropped out since.
We were not timid, even at the first, andreadily entered the field of
debate where we showed our ability by defeating the Sophomores. lt is
the opinion of most of the school-I mean the Freshmen-that we should
have had the decision over the juniors.
We have always been kind and affectionate to our teachers and have never
broken any of the school regulations. We have discussed them many times
but finally decided to cease criticism and like them all. Time has shown that
they are worthy of the confidence we placed in them and we are glad we can
-see that they all have good qualities.
ln all lines of work we excel. Even the teachers are proud of us and gave
ia large number of our class a place on the l-lonor Roll.
The class of 1921 is striving to win the reputation of being the Blue Ribbon
class of Norman l-ligh School and, encouraged and aided by our teachers, we
are even now upon the high road to success. Having worked together, en-
joyed a great many pleasures together, we hope to reach the goal together.
'Zl is looked forward to with great anticipations. V
We would like to go on telling you of our good times as well as our ups
and downs but we feel that we must close this article for the Seniors want a lit-
tle space in this annual and will be peeved if we take up too much of it.
We will meet you next year as Sophomores.

HE year of 1918 has been one filled with activities in the Debating
arena. Norman High School is getting a vision of the possibilities
of public speaking and every year the number of students who
engage in these activities increases wonderfully. As we approach
more and more to the highest standard of true world democarcy the necessity
for expression on the part of the individual increases proportionately. lt is a
conceded fact that the leaders of tomorrow will be those who can put their
igleag before the public.
There is no institution that offers greater opportunities to the prospective
speaker than the great democratic institution, the school. Besides develop-
ing effective speakers, debating offers for intellectual development as well as
education on the most important questions of the day.
BMX- Mr. Cv. A. Lackey is debating sponsor this year. He is a man of ex-
ceptional ability and is probably more interested in the success of High School
debating than any man in the state. The Boys' Debating Club was re-
organized in the fall. The members displayed the old time spirit and the
success. There was, however, one
society-it did not permit the girls
overcome by the disbandonment of
of the Philomathian Literary Society
organization was on the high road to
shortcoming in the constitution of the
to become members. This defect was
the Debating Club and the organization
which is composed of both boys and girls. The participation of girls in the
activities of a debating club sets a standard of which we are proud.
The class debates were held immediately Aafter Christmas. The first
of the series was the Senior-.lunior debate in which the juniors were suc-
cessful. ln a short time the Freshmen surprised everyone by defeating the
Sophomores. At a regular chapel period the juniors defeated the Freshmen
thereby winning the Silver Cup for the second time.
The High School tryout was held before a large audience of citizens and
students. The following teams were chosen to represent the school: Merle
Smith, Roy Smith and Subert Turb 1 l were selected for the League Team
and Earl Bartholomew, ames uchanon, and Ceorge Davis were chosen
the State-at-Large Team.
ln the first League debate N.H.S. defeated Chandler High School, receiv-
ing all three decisions. The team then went to Shawnee where, in one of
the closest debates ever staged we lost to our opponents by a two to one
ln conclusion we wish to extend our thanks to the public for its earnest
support and to Mr. Lackey for his splendid work as sponsor. To the l9l9
debaters we extend our best wishes for success.

.imjlf HE Y. W. C. A., although not a very old organization 119145, has
certainly progressed rapidly and, although much work has been
accomplished each year, the year 1917-1918 surpasses all. The
if " membership numbers over eighty. Much Social Service work has
been done this year, especially at Christmas. The girls also sent many boxes
to the 1-ligh School boys who have gone out to fight for "Old Crloryf' A
knitting club was organized for the purpose of knitting for the soldiers but
was abandoned when the entire school took up the work.
The primary object of the Y. W. C. A. is to bring the girls into a closer
relation with jesus Christ and to promote the spirit of fellowship among
the girls. Much of the success of this organization is due to the faithful
and untiring effort of the President who tried so hard to make things worth
while. The names of the faithful workers are too numerous to mention
in the limited space here but they cannot be forgotten. The Y. W. C. A.
owes much to its kind sponsor, Miss Barbour, whose sympathy and help
cannot be overestimated. The Y. W. C. A. will soon be affiliated independ-
ently with the National Y. W. C. A.

3356 year the Board of Education instituted a voluntary course in
military drill. Some of the boys "enlisted" in the "I-ligh School
School Company" and the course was continued for the remainder
' - -'Q of the year. This year it was deemed necessary by the Board to
make the course compulsory. ln conjunction with this ruling there was
passed one requiring all boys to wear military uniforms. The work of train-
ing is largely entrusted to the boys. There are two companies, each having
about 160 members. They are taught infantry drill, including skirmish and
platoon drill and wigwag signaling. Since this country entered the war
many of the students as well as the teachers have enlisted. Among the
teachers are: lvl. S. Mclvlurtrey, D. A. Turner, Harve Collins, W. O. Roth-
well, and Mr. Funk. Among the students arei Carl lnce, jim Cray, Falkner
Curtiss, Ray Reed, Merle Smith, Okla Bobo, Arthur Furr, Charles McDaniel,

'Democracy vs. 'liutocracy
HE sorrow of war has reached our hearts. We are in the struggle. Every Americans

happiness, religious and political freedom, and honor is at stake. This mighty
conflict will determine the destiny of the world. lt will decide whether the future
535- ye' of mankind is peace, Christianity, and democarcyg or war, lvlohammedanism,
On the field of France, the battle of Tours is in progress. The Teutons, allied with the
Mohammedans, are Hghting under a banner on which is inscribed the very principle of Mo-
hammedanismz "lV1lGl-IT MAKES RIGI-IT." Disputing the advancement of such a
doctrine firmly stands the line of Democracy. Fighting under a banner on which is written
"Tl-IE GOLDEN RULE" along with the American principle-we can say the Christian
principle-that all men are created equal.
Before autocracy and lvlohammedanism can dominate the world, Democarcy must first
he destroyed. This has been their watchword, "Democracy must be destroyed!" The hour
has arrived, the crisis is here. Will-our cause fail? Will freedom be crushed? Will democracy
be destroyed? Fellow Americans shall we allow to come from the pen of the lvluseof History
the humiliating words, "This generation permitted the torch to be overthrown and the fire
of liberty to be extinguished?" As if an echo to this question we hear an answer from voices
110 millions strong. No! never as long as a drop of American blood Hows in our veins! No
American will live to see a Prussian victory. We are determined to win and freemen in a
battle for freedom can never fail. I
ln the heart of every German aristocrat is burning the ambition that some day "Prussian
Kultur" and the iron hand will pilot the worlds ship of state on the high seas of international
diplomacy. Quoting from the l-lun emperor, the mouthpiece of German tyranny, "XVe are
the salt of the earth. The world shall have its coat cut according to our measure. lf you
were to ask me, how shall l build up the kingdom of God my answer would be. be a good
German. Our Fatherland will, I hope, become in the future, as powerful as once the Roman
World Empire was. And just as in the old times they said: 'Civis Romanus Sumf at some
time in the future they will say, l am a German citizen." From their own words we see that
the mission of this autocratic Teutonic peril is to subjugate all the peoples of the earth,to crush
America, and upon the ruins of freedom establish a world empire.
Why does Germany, a nation which could have shared the world's honor, succumb
and deteriorate under the influence of such a dream? What has caused a once Christian
nation to devastate and be more treacherous, cruel, and barbarous than any savages of any
time? When Prussia is brought before the bar of judgment for trial, when brought into the
limelight of truth, there will be pronounced a verdict of "GUlLTY." The world condemns
Prussia and holds her responsible for all this evil. lt is against Prussianism that America
has taken up arms.
The past of Germany was bright with prospects. It was a land of art, literature, and
religion. But in the last decade of the 17th century a spot of fate began to spread on the
map of Europe and enlarged until, nearing the dawn of the 20th century, two-thirds of former
Germany was subjugated and smothered under its influence. The other states that had
withstood this fatal blow so long were finally charmed by the brightness of Prussian arms,
miSlCll. and eventually conquered. Thus was modern Germany founded built upon a founda-
tion of war ' Nord, militarism, widows, orphans, and blood.
On the page of Prussia's history, or any other land while under Prussia's jurisdiction, is
written the name of no exponent of freedom, equality, and liberty as Martin Luther, Oliver
Cromwell, Thomas jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, or Woodrow XVilson.
Today Prussianized Germany is governed by secret sessions of the Bundersrath, whose
members are aristocrats appointed by the nobility. Prussia has the controlling voice. I-ler
king, the emperor, appoints the chancellor. Prussia can veto any law. In other words
the emperor has absolute power which is concealed under the curtain of this legislative body.
The people are blindfolded as to their true condition by a supposed House of Repre-
sentatives, the Reichsteig which has no legislative power. It can be dissolved at the will of the
emperor. The nobility, in a humorous way, justly term it, "The I-lall of Echoes," but it
serves to blind the people of Germany.
From birth the individuals are betrayed and misled to believe that their Prussian doc-
trines are righteous and divine. We can hear the clear voice of school children singing "O
Germany, I-Iigh in I-lonor, the Land of Faith," The principle they are taught is, "The indi-
vidual is created for the benefit of the state, that any crime, regardless of how cruel, is just
and righteous when committed for the state." There is no feeling of sympathy for the individ-
ual. As the result of this Belgium now lies bleeding under the trample of I-lun cruelty and
the mailed fist. Regardless of the name it bears that practice is not Christianity. To speak
in earnest, that principle of force is Mohammedanism.
Such a contrast! I-low different is the American. theory that our government exists for
the benefit and safety of the American people. When our Sammies have finished their drive,
when the Stars and Stripes are unfurled over the imperial palace of Berlin, no one can charge
and history cannot write that limbs were torn from the bodies of German youths that they
might not bear arms against us. No homes shall be separated and no women shall be mur-
dered. Even until the last we shall be able to show a clean record. That is the teaching of
Christianity. We are fighting for this under the prinicples laid down by the Prince of Peace.
The reason the common people of Germany can be led to do such terrible, inhuman
crimes is that they have been fooled by the aristocratic princes. They can fool all the Ger-
man people some of the time1 they can fool some of the German people all the time: but
they cannot fool all the German people all the time. As Napoleon was overthrown by the
growing national spirit, so will Prussianism be destroyed by the aid of the rising spirit of
democracy in the German people.
ln the present war every peoples liberty is held in the balance. Pen or human tongue
can never tell how much is at stake. We have attempted a great task: we must not falter.
The die is castg the Rubicon is crossed. Our brethren are already in the field. We cannot
afford to fail. We must wage and.win this war. lf Abraham Lincoln, the only American
to reach the lonely heights of immortal fame, were here today he would say, "Fellow Amer-
icans we entered this war for a principle. The war will end when that principle is established.
Under God I hope this war will not end until that principle is established."
If that principle is established, if Prussian militarism is crushed, world peace will be
possible. The future will be a range of impregnable mountains, rising in war's path, to dis-
pute the onward march of Mars' destructive passion. Universal peace will be like a ray of
ilight across the land. Mankind will realize the Parliament of Manzthe Federation of the World.

ENE STRATTON PORTER has been called a"lover of the great outdoors, "and indeed
'f she is. This isonething in her writings which impresses her readers and makes
them remember her books. She has never written a book of pure Fiction, always
j the things of the woods: the Flowers, the birds, the trees, and the butterflies enter
' ' ' in, and, when combined with some beautiful fiction, make never to be forgotten
and, which may be read again and again, each time, seemingly becoming more beautiful
and more to be remembered.
When she was a child she wandered over her fathers large Indiana farm and here began
her love for the wild thingsg for the Howers, trees, and things of the woods. As she grew older
her 'love of these things increased, and, in a desire to make other people love them too, she
began writing. She succeeded Wonderfully for all of her readers grew to have a great sym-
pathy with :he shy wood creatures. Very few descriptions of more delightful things can be
found to equal hers. They make one see and love the things she sew and loves.
Her characters are simple and true to life, as her descriptions. They have high and
pure ideals. ln her book "Freckles," Freckles, a Waif from the orphan's home comes in con-
tact with nature in all its primitiveness in a large swamp called the Limberlost. Here Freckles
proves his worth and finally finds love. This book is full of the swamp, the lonliness and deso-
lation at first but later when Freckles had become acquainted with the strange noises and
had learned to interpret them its grandeur and beauty shows itself in the changing of the sea-
In "Girl of the Limberlostu the swamp again enters in. The girl of the Limberlost, by
her constant association with the wonders of God in the things of the swamp, is made into a
beautiful pure souled woman. This contact with nature made her see the wonders of God's
knowledge and care. It expanded her soul and gave her a greater sympathy with human
nature. A warped, hardened, narrow-minded woman, coming into the knowledge of God's
handiwork in the development of a moth, breathed this prayed: "To the extent of my brain

my ssul to the fullest realization of your wonders. Almighty God make me bigger, make m
The Harvester is one of her most beautiful characters. The keynote to his life was clean
living. ln his association with nature in the woods near his home he worshipped the Divine
Ruler for His love and care for the wild things. Seeing the power of healing in the roots Of
exquisite flowers he did not hesitate to tear them from the earth, His life, alone with flowers,
birds, trees, butterliies, and a dog for companions, evolved for him a high, clean system of
morals. He kept his soul and body from contamination. His prayer was: "Almighty Evolver
of the Universe, help me to keep my soul and body clean, and at all times to do unto others
as l would be done by." What more noble prayer could be found for a real man?
When we read these books which make us see the hand of a mighty God in the smallest
leaf or fiower, how can we imagine the depth and beauty of the soul of a woman behind the
pen which writes these revelations? Certainly Gene Stratton Porter deserves a high place
in the esteem of every seeker after the pure in literature.

MR. HUGH MCDERMOTT
Norman High School Football Coach
l-Iugh McDermott is teacher of athletics in Norman High
School. Many of the old standloys graduated last year but
he succeeded in developing an exceedingly good team out of
practically all new material. l-le was a member of the Varsity
eleven this year and received instructions from Bennie Owen.
l-le was so young that he seemed as one of the boys and always
had their confidence. l-le suffered a broken arm early in the
season but he still retained the "pep," I-le is in the Army now.
Norman Tlfigb School Tootball Beam
"Nig"is a newcomer in Norman High School
but he can play football. He played quar-
ter and end. He will be back next year.
Bill started his career in 1914 and has
been a regular halfback ever since. Bill is a
Senior and will not be back next year. It
will be a' big loss to the team.
"Sis" played a great game at quarter. He
was a good passer and used his head fre-
quently. He is a Sophomore and will be
back next year.
Lester was the smallest man on the team
but played a good game at left end. l-le is a
Freshman and will be a mainstay next year.
"Red"played a good game at' fullback this
year. Last year he played tackle and full.
Red broke his arm at the first of the season
but got back into the game in a few weeks.
l-le will not be here next year.
"Flea" was a fast end. I-le was a sure
tackler and good at receiving passes. l-le is a
junior and will be with N.l-l.S. next year.
This is "'jol'1n's" first year on the N.H.S.
football team. He played a good game at
halfback. He is a Senior and will not be back
Elmer was captain of the 1917 team. He
played a good steady game at tackle. He
was on the all-state team of 'lo and 'l7.
He will not be here next year.
'llvlacknplayed a good game at end. He
was a sub but will make a good man next
year. He is a junior.
. ,. ' ' .5 1.1
"Dosey" has played three years and is cap-
tain for 1918: "Dosey" played a great game
at tackle this year. Formerly he was a
guard. I-le weighs 212 pounds.
"Dick"played a good game at right half. 1-le
was a sub. 1-le is a Sophomore and will be a
Wonderful help to the team next year.
"Blondie" played his first year with N.1-1.5.
in 1917. He was one of the best guards in
the state. 1-le is a Sophomore and will be
back next year.
"I-Ieinie" played a good game at left guard.
This was his first year. I-Ie was a rock wall
and all by himself, I-le will not be here next
EARL LANGE ORD
This was Earls first year with us but never-
theless he showed remarkable ability on the
gridiron. I-le was a sub half and end man.
I-le will be one of the strongest men on the
team next year.
"l.,anky," although he was playing his first
year, played a wonderful game at center. I-le
was good at breaking up passes and on pass-
ing the ball to the back field. He is a Senior
and will not be back next year.
T has been characteristic of Norman High School to put out a football
team that is not afraid to play any team in the state. This year
it came back very strong. Although severalold men were gone,
Coach McDermott whipped a lot of new material into shape with
wonderful success. These new men entered the game with fire in their eyes
and by the end of the season had l73 points to their credit.
We opened the season by defeating Prague 7 to O on September 21. We
then stacked up a 33 to 9 score on McAlester. Then came a reverse. We
were forced to play a game with Marshall in a sandstorm and as a result
suffered a l3 to 0 defeat. We then defeated our neighbor, Purcell, 55 to O.
The results of the succeeding games are given in the table below. Everett
Ogborn and Merle Smith, the yell leaders, did much to inspire pep in the
student body. Mr. Livingstone organized a band which created much en-
thusiasm by its patriotic airs.
Gbe Seconb Beam
McDermott prepared the material for l9l8. I-le developed
a good husky squad that will no doubt walk away with the cham-
pionship next year.

Athletic Association held a meeting and elected Edward john-
son captain of the 1918 Baseball team. Edward is fully quali-
fied for this office for he has been acquainted with the gameeiever
since he was large enough to hold a bat. Bill Howard was elected
manager. He expects to have many games on the schedule. The boys
have taken much interest in the game this year. The Cadets of the school
went out to the park and put the diamond in shape for the season. When
Captain johnson issued the first call over twenty men reported. There is
much promising material.
Superintendent N. H. Edwards will coach the team. Captain johnson
expects to play at the field meet to be held in Norman, April 26, 27, 28, and
we think he will lead this team to victory and the state championship.
ygfggk HOWARD was elected Captain of the l9l8 Track Team.

Although several- veterans of the cinder path have left school, we
5 A T 34 expect to have as good a track team as Norman ever put out. Cap-
tain Howard is a wonderful half-miler and also runs the mile in
good time. There are many men in school who have shown their ability
as sprinters. Clifford Bowles has been putting the shot about forty feet and
expects to do better by the time the track meet occurs.

Professor Edwards standsg
A mighty windjamrner is he,
With strong and capable hands,
And the muscles of his lengthy tongue
Are as strong as iron bands.
His locks are few and far betweeng
His face is like the tang
His brow is wet with angry sweat,
He teaches what e'er he can,
And shakes a stick in every face,
For he loves not any man.
Day in and day out, from morn till night,
His mighty voice does roar,
We love to laugh at his flaming eyes,
While we rush for the open door,
And later catch his burning words that fly
Like chaff from a threshing floor.
Toiling, grumbling, quarreling,
Onward through school he goes,
Each morning sees that school begins,
Each evening sees it closeg
Something started, something done,
He has earned a long night's doze.
Thanks, thanks to thee our wise good Prof.,
For the things thou hast wroughtg
Thus to the tune of the hickory stick
Our lessons must be brought
That which, by you was taught.

amined in nature study.

"Bees!" sang out Wayne Miller, while
others answered, correctly, "A little green
Feeling that the worst was over, Mr.
Garretson ventured another question:
"And now, Stirling. can you tell us
what comes after the little green apple?"
"Yes'm, he said, with the utmost sin-
cerity. "stomach ache."
"Now, Travis," said Miss Marshall
severely, "how many times must I tell
you not to snap your Fingers? Put your
hand down, and presently I will hear what
you have to say."
Three minutes later she asked:
"Now, Travis, what did you wish to

Mr. Lackey-"I.,ynn. you shouldn't laugh

"I didn't mean to," he apologized. "I

During school one afternoon a violent
thunderstorm arose, and, to lessen the
fright of the children, the teacher began
telling of the wonders of the elements.
"And, now, I-Iaroldf' she asked, "why
is it that lightning never strikes twice in
the same place?"
'iBecause, after it hits once, the same
place ain't there any more."

Song iiir sg age
greatest song bird that ever came to the trees of Norman High
School is Professor Robin Redbreast. He sings his solos in chapel
without an accompaniment because human hands cannot play
the piano as fast as he sings. The Board of Education has been
considering the installation of a triple speed motor-driven player piano, but
on account of a lack of funds it has not yet been provided.
In this connection we must mention the Senior Sextette which is com-
posed of Travis Baker, Lynn Geyer, Warren Hudgens, Elmer Wails, Bill
Howard and George Davis. Carl jackson is the director and instructor of
this wonderful group. The melodies of these illustrious six can be heard
above all the noise made by the remainder of the student body. Their "hold"
on the last note of "Three Blind Lice" is often very harmonious and im-
pressive. We regret very much that we shall not enjoy their productions
At the beginning of the year Eileen Tubbs attempted to accompany
Professor Robin Redbreast. Although several piano strings were broken
and a few keys were shattered and it was found necessary to employ several
strong boys to help the piano keep its equilibrium she gave up the attempt
as impossible. '
She was succeeded by Minnie Baker. Minnie usually finishes playing
the flrst stanza by the time Mr. Robin Redbreast is through with the song.
Although she does not play in time corresponding to Mr. Robin Redbreasts,
Mr. Davis and she usually keep together very well.
We feel that we must speak a few words concerning Miss Marshall and
her songs of "Nature" She has shown marked ability in singing the dramatic
and 'ivaudevilleu selections which abound in shrill notes. She once favored
the student body with a solo which was very much applauded.
Professor G. A. Lackey, D.T., is our great bass singer. He has often
deceived the Freshmen by his bass singing. They often mistake it for distant
thunder and run for the storm cellar, even when the sun is shining.

Mr. Davis met Miss Schlabach at the
terminal station. l-le started to ask her if
he might walk to school with her. Some-
one overheard him completing the ques-
tion as they stepped in the door of the
school. Why doesn't he take the advice
he gives his students, "But we must hasten
Mr. Garretson has suggested that Stir-
ling Allen be used as a specimen in Biology.
We supposed he meant to find out why
he hangs around Agatha, but he says he
meant to find out what is in Stirling to
keep him moving all the time.
Before a student can leave Miss lvlar-
shalls study hall he must answer the
following questions: 'AWhere are you
going? "l-low long are you going to be
gone?" "What are you going to do?"
"Who said you could go?" "l-lave you
got an iexcuse?" Of course none can
answer these rapid-fire questions, given
in one breath, so none are excused.
lvlr. Davis aspires to be a singing teacher.
We overheard him say, "l'll teach those
kids to sing under my Window."
Mr, Smith Cin Physics laboratory where
three different experiments are going on
simultaneouslyj-'iYes, take both of those
readings at once. No, don't do thatg l
will show you how. Put that down at the
bottom, l will get you the other piece in a
minute. Who busted this apparatus? War-
ren quit that Cartooning. Hurry! Hurry!
lt doesnt matter whether you get any
data! That apparatus isn't fool-proof,
What results did this table get? 97?
The correct amount is 2500. Well that
isn't so bad, Climatic conditions have
some effect this morning."
Lo! 'Tis a Senior. Fresh-
men tip your hats. Be con-
descending, for his rank is
high. His manners are
stately and his Wisdom sur-
passeth that of the ancients.
