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 occasion. ' 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. 1.918 11 .Y 5W0.l'65, City Supermllenbenl ,,:s5x::: . ,.,.5,,.:.,. . ,lzlvmt we f W ' .W . 1 'ffeQ2f4la'1i- . .-ff. , in - y -- N --'e,,,..,,:1 fx- 411211. 51:-f"'.221911237:-::v:-'-:.-.'.--.-..-. - . -V V--:I-,211-22--6192:-5111: 1-If-2. -1-. 1 - v.,, ,.,,,,A.Q,c. x.

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 machines. I 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 the state. 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 tem er. 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. ' Mr. Hugh McDermott was the producer of the great l9l7 gridiron team. He was thoroughly in love with the game and was much admired by tlce boys. He is in the Army now. Mr. XV. F. Funk was teacher of Biology and showed that he was familiar with all kinds of bugs. He is now in the service of the U. S. also. lvlr. Bailey is instructor in Manual Training. He is a carpenter by experience and is also an expert draftsman. He is the architect of the Washington school which is now under construction. 1918 4 15 Tacully ffm 37 ,17 I 'U " 'fx 16 , W .Q ., 1 1 -u. r E H 'SJ in -. r 1 T!

'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 here. EPocH 2 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. EPocH 3 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. EPOCH 4 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.

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 McGuire Knightonf' 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. 1.91 8 36 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. 1918 37 'iff Senior GJ lass will E, the present Seniors, being supposedly in our right minds, and in 4575 T-iii sound health hereby make, publish, and declare this our last will and testament, to-wit: in JT To the faculty we leave memory of many happy hours spent with said Seniors.

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 with knowledge. 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.

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.

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.

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 for 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 decision. 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. 1918 60 Tlfigb Scbooawebaling Beams I 1918 61 Tlfobah Tliclures 1918 62 W 15 .--Eiiieaa. :Zi 'W wwf". - ,nw 625' im ai 'WE1 'Geri-5' ,ny gg' 1 api, lg 5 , pp 'Suv iii za! :fav Ill ifvlii 1? -a as '1- v' ' ' 1 v . 1 . -any '2fa.,, 1? jiri Jim? fiifasiif-1' '1 1 -v iii' Lime: we-gm 1918 63 TI bilomatbian PK R Top Row-Powell, Smith, TurbyFIll, Bartholomew, Davis, Ogborn, Alexander. .Second Row-Fitch, Ogbom, McClure, Mr. Newblock, Monnet, Baker.

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.

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.

We are in the struggle. Every Americans F T15 44 Ai . . . . . . , . 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, and autocracy. 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. 1.918 73 Tfssay-Glonlinucb 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 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. ....l 1918 74 l Y "Al TA mobern Tciutbor 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- sons. 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 power l realize your presence and all it is in me to comprehend your power. Help me to learn. even this late, the lessons of your wonderful creations. Help me to unshackle and expand my ssul to the fullest realization of your wonders. Almighty God make me bigger, make m broa er." 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.

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. 1918 82 8161 Norman Tlfigb School Tootball Beam TOM TAYLOR "Nic" "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. WILLIAM HOWARD HBILL.. 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. EDWARD JOHNSON "SISTER" "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. 1918 84 LESTER STOUT ul"lERCULESH 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. GEORGE IVICDANIEL "RED" "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. HARRY FLEI-IARTY HFLEAH "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. 1918 ss RAYMOND KENNEDY L'joHN" ' 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 next year. ELMER WAILS "EAT" 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. IVIALCOM SHEAD "MACK" 'llvlacknplayed a good game at end. He was a sub but will make a good man next year.

I-le weighs 212 pounds. RICHARD ANDERSON A "DICK" "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. CLIFFORD BOWLES "BLoND1E" "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. 1.918 87 HENRY CLANTON "I-IE1N1E" "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 year. EARL LANGE ORD "Doc" 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. WALTER SADLER ULANKYH "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. 1918 Q 88 Ebe Beam 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 AV' 3.3-r a good husky squad that will no doubt walk away with the cham- pionship next year.

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.

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.

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.

In lrving's time lchabod, the schoolmaster, loved Katrina: but now Chauncey is in love with Nina. the schoolma'am. l The woman, who used to have a daughter who washed the dishes and took care of the k1dS after supper, now hasaseventeen year old princess who entertainsa cigarette smoker in the Parlor until ten o'clock. Some students are always desirous of getting kicked out of school but it's different when the opportunity comes. Pshychology has been able to account for a goodly number of cases but it hasn't been able to account for George and Charline's case. Dancing may make for gracefulness in motion but we haven't noticed any kings or princes in the S.T.C. bunch. Neither have we noticed any hippopotammi on the outside. We don't mind the wheatless and meatless days but the brainless faculty sure gets our goat. Y It's hard to convince a young debater that the greatest honor comes not from the wear- ing of pins, but experience shows that it does. Many are the girlsa football player has as long as the season lasts. Military training is a great thing but we'll bet 6 to l that every last one of the cadets would run if a German seige gun were fired off near a front line trench. The faculty Qand Board of Educationj is always very desirous that the boys wear khaki uniforms for conservation purposes, i.e., so that they can wear 100fZ, wool clothes. Time shows that the most popular society lass is usually the most unpopular in the class- room. Teachers! Don't chastise your students for throwing paper wads in the Study l-Ialll you used to do the same thing yourself. The school master, who used to have a hickory stick cut off with a 25c knife. now has a paddle turned out with tools costing 35100. You may make girls observe meatless and wheatless days, but you cannot make them observe powderless and paintless days. Neither can you make the boys observe tobacco-less days. The faculty pose as "know-it-all wiseheadsu but ifatrue analysis of the knowledge of teachers and pupils were possible the difference between the two would probably be negligable. Love isn't confined solely to the student body. Mr. Davis and Miss Schlabach prov9 that. 'You may tell a girl that she is brainless and everything else but for the sake of peace don t tell her that she is homely. A boy can put on a S40 suit, a silk shirt, stick a cigar in his mouth and half the girls in school will chase after him, calling him the grandest boy that ever lived. I-lave you noticed that the crankiest teacher is always best liked by the student? We haven't either. We know of only one person who is hated more than the Kaiser and that is a teacher who imitates him. judging from the rate some students are stacking up credits there will probably be a large graduating class about 1930.

WINIQICKS KNEW FROM EXPERIENCE The members of the Board of Educa- tion were paying their dreaded annual visit, and the biology class' was being ex- amined in nature study. "Now children." said Mr. C-arretson, holding up an apple blossom, "what comes after this blossom?" "Bees!" sang out Wayne Miller, while others answered, correctly, "A little green apple." 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 say?" "There was a man in the entry, and he went out with your new silk umbrellaf was the serene reply. Mr. Garrelson-"Now, students, name some of the lower animals, starting with I-Ienry Conklingf' Mr. Lackey-"I.,ynn. you shouldn't laugh out loud in the schoolroomf' "I didn't mean to," he apologized. "I was smiling, and all of a sudden the smile busted on me." A Senior handed in the following in an examination paper in United States his- toryg ' "General Braddock was killed in the Revolutionary War. I-Ie had three horses shot under him, and a fourth went through his clothes," 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." WANTED TI-IEM BALANCED A note sent by Mrs. Floyd to Mr. Smith: "Pardon me for mentioning it, but you have pulled Francis' right ear until it is getting longer than the other. Please pull his left ear for a while, and oblige his mother." Mr. Carretson-"Who can tell me where is the home of the swallow?" Wayne Miller-'AI can, it's the stum- mick." Freshman! Mother-'iDid you get out of all your examinations?" Freshman-"No, but I got horrible mention."

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 another year. 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. Norman High School. Norman High School Norman High School.

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 on?" ' 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!
