S0 several saw-mills that were inte1'ested furnished the material. And about a dozen good citizens Willingly gave their time to building a one-roomed house. During the first term of school twenty pupils sat upon the home made benches. The school was under the super- vision of one teacher until the "oil boom" in 1901, at wl1ich.ti1ne there was a building erected at Spindletop. The following year, another room was added to the tirst building. By the term of 1905 and 1906 there had been such an influx of people, that four teachers were employed at the main building and two at Spindletop. In the Fall of 1908 the Spindletop school was discontinued. fn the same year, while a two-story brick building was under construction, a vacant store at the corner of Latonia and Highland avenues, together with the original building, were used for school rooms. In 1911, another building was erected. Domestic Science and Arts, Agriculture, and Manual Train- ing were added to the course of studies in 1911. ' A Although the school had had a considerable growth, yet there was no regular graduating class till 1915. In the same year the school was affiliated with Texas University. More credits were given during the past years. Last year the school building was remodeled and a 350,000 addition made and now is one of -the best equipped and most modern high schools in the state.

A X . , . k - xt enior Class History 1 The beginning of September, 1913, marked a new epoch in the lives of thirty-tive boys and girls of the South Park High School. Une would have thought that some great event was taking place by the extremely uproarous con- dition of the school in general but we finally got through the Freshman year. The next year, September, 1914, we entered High school as usually accompanies the transition from a Freshman to a Sophomore. Many of our class had decided to take up housekeeping as a pastime. In our Junior year we decided to elect officers. The following were selected: MALcoL,M LTCUORQUODALE . . . . . . . . ............ President PAULINE Noam . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Secretory and Tl'eosm'e1' The first opportunity for the school to appreciate the Juniors was when we originated the idea of giving the Seniors a banquet, which proved to be very successful, both financlally and socially. In our Senior year only eleven remained. VVc got together and elected officers. We feel that our High school career has been successful. Farewell to High school lifeg but we realize that our work has merely begun. May we carry as much energy and enthusiasm into the good works of the World as we have shown in school affairs with which We were connected. Page 17 EVERETT E.

P ink and Pearl Gray Junior Class History The year of 1916-17 has been a very eventful and successful one for the Juniors. During' the first part of the term they organized a class and officers were elected. The class has been Well represented in societies and school athletics, by both boys and girls. Une of the most notable events in the annals of the Junior Class was the banquet given in honor of the Seniors. lt was held in the school auditorium and proved to be a most delightful affair. All ofthe Juniors, Seniors, and mem- bers of the high school faculty were present. After the banquet was served and the after dinner speeches heard the evening' was given to different arnuseinents. Now we are ready to take up Senior work and we intend that the 1918 class shall rank far above any of the form- er graduation classes. Page 22 JVXIORS S0l'Il0MUlH'IS Page 24 AL-L Liam!

Association can well be proud of' itself in the matter of finance, it having gone through this school year without financial aid of any sort from the Board. This was accomplished through the increased business han- dled by the Athletic Co-op, The "Co-op" handles all of student's supplies, selling them at the usual retail price, and it is to the credit of South Park pupils that most of them show real school spirit in buying their supplies from a school institution. The nice glass showcase is one of' the first things that attracts a visitor's attention. It was also bought from the profits. Stanford Turner and Gill Johnston are the managers, they serving without pay, but are getting a world of experience in high financing that will doubtless help them when they get on Broadway. Page 30 J 'IONS Ol" SOl"l'II TEXAS 19 Foot Ball At the beginning of the 1916 foot ball season only one letter man was present and very little new material. Dur- ing the first week's work only about seven or eight men reported for practice, however, as the work progressed more interest was shown by the boys and a fairly good sized squad was developed. I tl first frame with Jasper High the team showed many weak points, but by hard work. on the part of all the n ie squad a gradualtimprovement was matde. The second game was lost to Port Arthur and the third game was also lost ' O H' h l off with the score of 13 to 6. In the fourth game the team found itself and played the heavier range ig e even their feet, showing some of the prettiest forward passing ever exhibited by high schools in this part of the state. On November 4th we met Jasper for the second time and more than wiped out tl1e previous defeat. The team showed a superiority over their opponents in every department of the game. The last game of the season was played on the home grounds with Port Arthur High November 25th. The first half ended with a score of 7 to 3 in our favor but in the last half, due to the brilliant work of Jordan, Port Arthur's star half back, the tide was turned. , The prospects for next season look unusually bright this year as the letter men, Johnston, Pietzsch, Brown, Mc- Neel Parker and possibly Captain Shattuck will be back. It is also rumored that t'Big" Turner of the 1915 team will show up., With this material South Park bids fair to be in the running. The following are the games played: South Park-0 Jasper High-10 South Park-0 Port Arthur High-24 South Park-6 Port Arthur Business College-13 South Park Orange High-6 South Park-32 Jasper High-0 South Park-7 Port Arthur High-21 ' 'N-s. . in Vl' HALL SQVAIJ 111 Y l'll K Girls Basket Ball After a lapse of two years, the girls' basket ball team was reorganized this year under the direction of Miss lone Swope who has been successfully connected with Athletics at Daniel Baker College and the University of Texas. Lela Colley was unanimously chosen as captain of the team. Although handicapped by a muddy court during a greater part of the season, the team rounded into form which was not equalled by any team in this part of the state. South Park 1's..l1mlfer.-Tliis was the first game ofthe season and was played only after three day's practice. We verily swamped the hitherto undefeated .Iunker team by the overwhelming score of 129 to 11. South Park tus. Silsbee.-After being delightfully entertained by the Silsbee girls, they continued their courteous treatment by beating us 8 to 4. It was a good game anyway, and we all had a dandy time. South Pork rs. Beauvurmt High.-During the first third of this game, the Beaumont forward had rare luck in shooting goals. We outplayed and out-scored them the other two-thirds but were unable to overcome their lead. The final score was 16 to 12 in favor of B. H. S. The return game was called off by Beaumont High. South Park vs. Port Neches.-W'e played them off their feet in the first game, winning 9 to 5. The second game, played at Port Neehes, was hard-fought, the score being 13 to 10 in our favor. South Park rs, Port Arthur.-This was decideflly the best game of the season. With VVillie and Minnie throw- ing uneri ing goals, with Alta and Violet playing like veterans in the center, we were in no danger of losing. The ball was carried off the court several times by huge mosquitos, but we persuaded them to let us have it long enough to win tlwv game, 13 to 8. This was a sweet morsel in our mouths, owing to the fact that Port Arthur had already defeated .Beaumont High twice this season. Willie McKinley was elected captain of the 1918 team. VVe expect great things of the team. The following line-up took part in most of the games: 1'10I'llYl1"d.Q MINNIP1 Wr1.1.uroRn xNlI.LlE h4CKINLEX' Guards ALTA ISURNFIN GLADYS RUDD LA RUE EI.I,h1NIJklR STELLA BX'ERLY Centers l,r11.A t'or.Lr:Y tt'apt.l Viomri' RTCCORMICK Page 34 IIRLS' BASKWI' ISALI. Sill Boyis Basket Ball Tl1e basket ball practice was started after foot ball season closed and on the first call, quite a number of good men answered. Although all of the boys were inexperienced, the season a whole was highly successful, the team Win- ning second honors in South East Texas, losing only to the heavier and more experienced Beaumont High team. The team showed its greatest advantage in speed and team work although towards the close of the season the forwards and centers were shooting baskets from all angles. Stanford Turner was elected captain and played a hard, consistent game, while Shattuck, the other forward, and Mctforquodale, the center, showed team work to its advantage. Pietzsch at guard, could always be depended up- on, and often amused the spectators with his Dutch wit. The prospects are good for a winning team next year.

However, a good sized squad of young material was developed and every- one showed an abundance of enthusiasm. Up to the present writing, three games have been played and all of which have been lost, due in a large measure to inexperienced pitching. The boys of this year's team are all young and have two or three years more in South Park. The work of this season can well be regarded as building and prepara- tion for the teams of succeeding years. We can expect them to be heard from in the future.

It was at first opened to the girls of the grades for membership, but this year all below the Freshman class were excluded. This club has achieved wondrous success since its existence and is planning a charining feature for coinrnenceinent night. The club was first organized and directed by Miss Clara Mae Hanks, but has been for the last two years under the excellent supervision of Miss Marie Richter. Efforts are being made to get the Glee Club work in as a credit work, and also it will try to give an operetta. lt is thought much can be accomplished in this way.

Secretory NVhen on moon light nights the pretty daughter of the house and her watchful papa and mama have gone to bed and a mournful howling fills the air, neighbors pass the Word along the line, "The Coyotes are out tonight!" Although this is the Coyotes' first year it has, under great difficulties, been a success. South Park has always had a Glee Club but never such a one as the 1917 Club. Under the supervision of Miss Marie Richter it has blos- somed forth like a rose. Caruso and Henry Burr have formidable rivals in the Coyotes. The very birds themselves stop warbling when the clear sounds are heard. ' 5 The play, "At the End of the Rainbow," given by the students to raise money for the Spindletop, owes much of its success to the singing of the Coyotes in the play. Well known college songs were given but the "0ld University Pipe Song" brought the applause. The Coyotes havenot yet been assigned their parts, but each individual Coyote during practice for Commence- ment Exercises will be tested and given his proper place. ' The Glee Club improves every year, and by next year it will be the best in the country. It is a great distinction to be a. Coyote and every member wears his brush proudly. The school will lose many great artists when the '17 members leave, for there are many unrecognized geniuses in its membership, Page 44 W5 wg mi? a yy TH IC i'0Y0'I'l'1S I':l'jl' In Pawn- 16 X JWWIWWL f f Qx Z feiii Y Wx f Q 'L' Wag! 1 921 if V ' f 2.

Thomas E. Gay, teacher of science and mathematics, aroused the interest of students and the first literary society was organized. I A committee composed of Grace Gorman, Mr. Ben Parks, and Hattie Perkins selected the name "The Athenian" for the society. The Athenians met every second Friday evening at 3 :40 and good work was accomplished in debating, reciting, and the like. To show the interest that was aroused among outsiders l will mention that at times there were as many as a dozen visitors present. When the 1916 term of school opened in September it seemed as if the literary society had been forgotten. The work was not taken up until November, when Mr. Earl Gough stirred up tl1e coals. At the first meeting Daphna Davis was elected president and W'alter 0'Hoark secretary. A busy program committee composed of Pauline Noble, chair- man, Lula Turner, and Willie Fehl kept the members interested with spicy and interesting programs. The society kept wrangling about a name, but finally it accepted "The South Park Literary Society" as appropriate, and the feuds that were aroused were forgotten in time. ' The last meeting of the South Park Literary Society was held in the big auditorium at night and the public was invited. A special program was rendered which was thoroughly enjoyed by a house full of visitors. ln the business session which followed it was decided to elect officers for the following year so as to prevent a long lapse of idle time at the beginning of the following term. The following officers were elected: NIALCOLM NICCORQUODALE ..................... Pifesident MARY Bf'TLER ............ .......... V ice President GoRDoN PARKER . . .. Secretary and Treasurer GILL .Ion Ns'roN ....................... Sergeant-at-Arms With these officers tl1e literary society started out the next term with great prospects.

Pietzsch and Mr. J. C. Eisentraut. NVhen the new building was planned three rooms were set apart for a first class lunch room. The boys and girls are served in separate rooms and the kitchen or serving room is between the two. The cafeteria is under the management of Miss Meta Schwab, head of domestic science department. She is responsible for all orders, plans the menus, keeps account of bills by simple bookkeeping system, and handles the payment of bills and other finances, The preparation and cooking is done by two mothers who have children in school and therefore a personal interest in it. The serving is done by four teachers and four students, who receive as compensation for their service, free lunches limited to fifteen cents for teachers and ten cents for pup1ls. The money is handled by a systematic check system. The checks themselves are aluminum coin-like pieces rang- ing from one cent to five cents. These checks are bought when the student first enters the lunch room and are ex- changed for food at tl1e serving window within one to twelve minutes, the latter period being ample time to serve two hundred students. Menus are printed and sent to each room every day. The child selects what it wants and then buys tl1e correct check. After they have bought their lunches they are seated at the table where they eat comfortably. V. M. Page 52 OCIETY 1 , ff lf W Reception ....l.....4- lt-1 .u .

The auditorium and mess hall were decorated in red, white and blue, emphasizing the patriotism of both classes during our nation's crisis. A nice program, consisting of musical numbers, speeches, socia.l chat, and a contest, entertained everyone for quite a while. In the contest Mr. Lohr and Miss Lula Turner won first prize, which was a box of chocolates, and Octaviaqllansom and Frank Pietzsch won the booby, a package of gum.

Mary Hinson Mollie Bruce, of the Theta Phi ................... Mary Myers The scenes of the play are located in a college town. The students are practicing for a foot ball game with a rival col- lege team and much interest in the outcome is shown. It de- velops that Douglas Brown, a foot ball expert from another col- lege, is in town on business connected with his father's estate, Page 5 and to distract attention, enters this college. Phyllis Lane in- duces him to play with the team at the request of the captain, a love romance being created thereby. Robert Preston, a lawyer, secretly loves Marion Dayton, his ward, and she reciprocates. He trusts the combination of his safe to her and tells her of a packet of important papers lying therein. Louise Ross and her mother, Mrs. Brown, step mother to Douglas Brown, learn that a second will disinherit- ing them has been found and is among the papers in Preston's safe. They plot to obtain possession of the document at a mask ball given by Marion. Louise wears a gown identical with that of Marion's, deceives Preston, learns from him the combination of the safe, obtains the papers by the aid of jack Austin, un- aware of the fact that the original packet has been removed by Preston and other documents substituted. "The Imp," a g'rl student, sees and recognizes her. Preston enters and recognizes jack, who is assisting Louise in the belief that she is Mariongand convinced that jack med- itates robbery, upraids him. Marion enters and comprehend- ing the situation as she fancies, she shields jack by assuming the guilt. Her innocence is finally established bv the "Imp," who exposes Louise. Meanwhile Douglas wins the game for the team and realizes that he loves Phyllis, but when he learns that she has trifled him, he becomes cool. This, however, passes away and happiness follows. When Marion's self-sacrificing effort to save jack is brought to Preston's attention through the exposure of Louise's duplicity, he discovers that he loves her and their dream of the pot of gold 'lat the end of the rainbow" is happily realized. Only five weeks of earnest work and hard practicing under the generous guidance of the instructors, elapsed when the play was given on 'Friday night, March l6. It was a great success and the accounts were balanced. l ,V E - f ---I-41 llllmll.

'1 Two Illodern Paul Reveres Edward and Luke having successfully completed their term's work in Latin and various other subjects, were rewarded by a visit to a western ranch. They found that the place dId not come up to their expectations, as they were familiar only with ranches through novels. However, they were well pleased with the chances for fun before them. The first morning found them up early, ready for a day's work out in the saddleL After breakfast, Bill, the old man who looked after the work, took them on his round to do the feed- ing. They soon came to a corral of horses and began to pick out one to ride. "You will find saddles and riding gear at the barn, better take it easy and stay in the corral where the ground is soft," said Bill as he left them. After a great deal of trouble they managed to get their ponies saddled. On the flip of a coin it fell to Edward to ride first. "If I can get through one season of foot ball and complete Latin without any bones broken, and' few brain cells left, I can ride most any horse here," said he. He mounted Caesar, as he called him, but no movement resulted. "I guess you are used to Latin thenf' and he spoke some to him. Old Caesar thought he was being talked about and started Pngi- U forward in long, high jumps. Ed reached the gate first, but being well tramped ground, no injuries were received. "Latin doesn't seem to help a fellow ride," said Luke, roar- ing with laughter. "I challenge you to mortal combat on horses," returned Ed, on whose brain there remained stories of the medieval knights just read about in school. Luke was to be a better rider than Ed as he had rode a few pacing horses and on one occasion had one so far as to jump a six-foot ditch. Both mounted and came dashing at each other from oppo- site ends of the corral, Ed giving his war-whoop, "Revenge," while Luke, believing in "Facta non verba," said nothing. Had any of the twelveth century knights been present they would have been witness to their own methods of fighting, for when both were within a few yards of each other they left their sad- dles and met each other in mid-air with a crash. They rolled on the ground groaning till they heard a noise, and looking up they saw a mule, his head over the bars, braying. They thought he was laughing at them, and although enemies they united in the common cause of punishing the mule. Luke, getting too close to the mule, was sent for a trip through the air. It was now Ed's time to laugh, but he did not feel like it. They then slowly made their way back to the house and went to bed, having had enough rough riding for the day. Bill soon came in with a bottle of liniment and placed it on the table. He smiled behind his hand as he glanced at the bed but knowingly said nothing. A. G. Brnnmont, Tux., May 5, 1917 Mr, W. H.

I 1 Cupid Won It was late in the foot ball season and there seemed to be something wrong for game after game had been played. Yet the team's percentage was low. It couldn't be that there was no good material, for all the boys were heavy and strong, and the coach was not to blame, for he succeeded in getting the boys out to practice, and the year before his team was always a winner. The coach seemed to be getting disappointed. There was just one more week until the big game with the Neches High was to come off. That team hadn't lost a game and the old jealousies between the schools demanded that our boys must win. But how? was the question. Even the once enthusiastic girls had lost interest in the team. Only a few remained loyal and they were the Senior girls. On Monday evening before the game, which was to be on Saturday, Polly got to talking to the girls about their lack of support given to the foot ball boys. "I don't see how they can expect us to go to their old games when they don't winf' said Lil indignantly, "and besides there is no one on the team that we care especially forg all the real players were graduated last year." It seemed as if the girls would not listen to plans, neither would they offer any. There was a haphazard feeling among them. But the crisis had come and something had to be done. Pat, the little heroine she is, solved the problem. 4'Girls, l have found it at last," she said. "Found what?" sneered all. "I have been thinking of a plan all this time and I have found it. We must interest those boys. We, I mean we girls. You know a player can play better when he is interested in some girl and she is on the side line cheering his every play!" "Push on her! l never thought of thatg is she really in love?" jested Eddie. 4'You may call it love if you want to, but girls, come try my plan. Let's give a party tomorrow night at Polly's. We will invite the eleven boys and tell them they must bring a girl. We will put the girls on the job and those boys will have to win," she explained. "She is a real genius," complimented Ella. Early next morning Polly invited the boys and they nearly keeled over when they were told that they must bring a girl. All day long everything was in motion. Later on in the day Polly found out which girls the boys had invited so she told them her plans. They were to flirt with those boys, just any- thing to make them win the game Saturday. All of them thought it quite a lark. By eight-thirty all of the guests had arrived and games were in progress. The hostess thought the girls never looked so stunning in their evening frocks, while the boys seemed very much at ease in their company. The plan had taken effect already. Dick brought jap and he never took his eyes off her, Ted had called for Pat and he seemed to be completely overcome by her brunette beautyg while Eddie proved very successful in carrying out her part with Douglas, and it was hard to tell which one Legs had be- come infatuated with, Nell or Marie, for he divided his time with them. These are only instances, but the other boys and girls proved very successful. Games and dancing on the big porches by Victrola music were the features of the evening. At a late hour dainty refreshments were served and the guests departed, begging Polly to give another party soon. She heartily prom- ised if the boys would only win Saturday. ln spite of their late hour of the night before, Wednesday morning the girls collected at their usual meeting place, out under the big palm. . "Spuds asked me to come to the game Saturday and see him make a touchdown," rejoiced Molly. Page 62 CUPID WON--Continued "Douglas said he couldn't play unless I was there to yell for him," interrupted Eddie. All the girls were very loud in their praise for the boys and it seemed as if Dan Cupid had been secretly at work. There was not a boy or girl who didn't seem influenced. Then followed three days of the hardest practicing that had been witnessed, declared the coach. A great deal of rivalry arose among the boys to see which could bring in the most scores, while the girls were very busy selling tickets for the game. Saturday came at last. The game was called at 3:00 and all the men were ready except Douglas, the halfback. His ab- sence could not be explained and he was sorely needed. Turner was substituted and the game was called. At first our boys held their lines well until Peck broke through and gained twen- ty yards, leaving only about fifteen to the goal. Then fortun- ately for the South Park boys, the whistle blew calling time up. The next few minutes passed too quickly for the boys who kept expecting Douglas. He was the only one who could save the day and he hadn't come yet. Then the whistle blew which announced the last half. A fresh and larger squad of Neches High players lined up against our determined, yet disappointed, eleven. The ball went up and down the field and nearer the Neches High goal. A new man, Hinkey by name, got the ball and was headed for his goal, when Ted brought him down with a groan. "I knew he would," shouted Pat. Paige 6:1 "Only my neck broken, fellows," answered Hinkey. Time was called, a great deal of fussing followed, and new players were substituted by the Neches High coach. Neither side had scored yet. "Hurrah! Douglas!" Eddie was the first one to see him. Surely enough, he was in his suit and didn't even take time to explain his absence. He took his position and the game was begun with renewed pep and enthusiasm. Loud shouts arose l'rom the spectators. The boys could see the girls and hear them cheering. When the Neches High center put the ball in play Douglas was put through an opening made by Fizz and on top of the fullback who was ready to kick, knocking the ball from him, while Spuds fell on it. "Well done, Spuds," roared South Park supporters. Calling for the ball to be passed to him, Douglas again found the hole made by Fizz, was through the line, dodging the backs almost before the Neches High knew it. Only the opposing fullback was between Douglas and the goal but he was charging at the yellow-haired boy like a mad- dened bull. Suddenly he drove at Douglas. Scarcely breathing, the spectators watched. But the halfback had been expecting the move and, leaping in the air and to one side, he escaped the outstretched arms and raced unhindered across the goal line. Wild cheers and shouts arose from South Park spectators. Discouraged, the Neches High men lined up for the kick-off. But while the ball was still in the air the whistle blew-the game was over-won by Dan Cupid. P. N.

The following conversation took place between two prom- inent business men of this city. They came into a down town cigar stand for the purpose of buying some cigars: "Yes, I want some cigars, some of the new kind, I have a friend who got some here and l want some like them, if possible." The clerk, a small, timid looking little man with a black mustache, asked what kind he wished, very politely. "I don't know the kind," said the customer, Hbut I want a cigar without a band, as I wish a quiet smoke, a light brown cigar will do. Look, Smith, do you think this one is becom- in ?" he asked as he took the cigar the clerk offered. 'AI can't say that I do. l have never admired you in just that shade of brown, besides I don't think your wife would like it," answered his friend. "Well, let me see some more, please," he said to the timid little clerk. This time the clerk took a long, dark one from a box. A "This is something new," he told the customers. "We have only a few and they are being used quite a great deal this year. "What is the price?" asked the customer. "Two for five cents," the clerk answered. "Why don't you raise the price so respectable folks can be seen smoking them? No, I will not take that one." The little clerk was beginning to look worried, but not so with the two customers. They seemed to have plenty of time, and besides, wasn't the clerk paid to wait upon them? "Smith, do you think this would look well with my dness suit?" "No," answered the other man. "lt is too short, gives you a 'dumpy' appearance. You need a longer cigar, anyway that is old style, in fact they were used last year." All this time the clerk was upon a step ladder piling down cigar boxes. "Perhaps you would like a Scribner?" queried the clerk. - "No indeed, I have not smoked that kind in years, they are too strong for me I guess. My wife told me they were the most unbecoming cigars I ever smoked, so I have cut them out al- tcgether now." The clerk was hunting cigars and quite often he would take out his handkerchief and wipe his forehead. He took a cigar, nearly black in color, and handed it to the man. The gentle- men handled it gingerly, put it in his mouth, then walked over and surveyed himself in the mirror, after which he turned around and announced that it was too dark. "Well, let's go somewhere else," suggested his friend, "you know you said you didn't expect to find anything you wanted here." So the two men, picking up their gloves, passed through the door. The clerk glanced at the two men, going down the sidewalk, then at the cigar boxes piled high, and gently, very gently, sank down behind the counter. That is all. What if our business men did as their wives- spend half the morning wrangling over a cigar as their wives do over a piece of silk, then probably leave the Store empty- handed? , E. P.
