"But Take an Old Kentucky Thoroughbred and-"
R. TERRILL fills quite a niche in the educational Hall of
Fame. He is the "boy-handler" extraordinary and "plenty-
potentialf' too. Moreover, he is the headmaster of the finest
prep school organization in the Southwest. The thing that
has made his school stand out is that he has based the whole system
on the idea that boys are sent to him, first, to work, and secondly,
to work some more. Among other things, Mr. Terrill has the knack
of getting under a boy's skin and staying there. Thirty years of
teaching and association with boys has made him familiar with
every form and facet of school boy character. He is a school teacher
of the old school who keeps green in these decadent days the
memory of the birch and palm and no one can deny that he has
been a worthy exponent of the good old way of raising a boy. That
he gets his results by it cannot be denied.
But unfortunately to many of us, the real man behind is an un-
known quantity, a powerful, but not always intelligible force-just
so much retribution in its most immediate form. Later in life,
like some Athenian meeting a tragic actor face to face on the street
without the awfulness of his mask, we shall realize the genuine
worth, the noble purpose behind Mr. Terrill's clisciplinarian's mask
-and then we shall love and revere him as a man.
During the ten years of his connection with the school, Mr.
Terrill has made it famous for its high standard of scholarship
and discipline, and in turn the school has put Dallas on the edu-
cational map. ln the present, the name, Terrill is a name with
which to reckon, in the future it will be a name with which to

"Let's Hear You Talk."
CC HE. greatest thing that ever happened to me," Mr. Terrill
was once heard to say, "was the coming of a good woman
into my life." We can't enlarge upon that, but we can
say that one of the greatest influences that has come into
many a house boy's life has been Mrs. Terrill. For the greater
part of the year, she is a mother to some seventy boys, and she
comes just as close to filling that difficult position as is humanly
possible. Mrs. Terrill is ever ready to help a boy, to counsel him,
and to put in a good word for him.
Besides being a mother of seventy, Mrs. Terrill is a teacher of
teachers. Although not actively teaching this year as much as in
former years, she has made herself felt in whatever work she has
put her hand to. l-ler classes have only themselves to blame if
they do not learn anything under such a teacher. To hear Mrs.
Terrill instructing the house boys in the books of the Bible is in
itself a revelation.
There has been no little said about the part Mrs. Terrill has
played in the management of the school. It is generally thought
that whereas Mr. Terrill is the guiding hand of the school, Mrs.
Terrill is the guiding spirit. It is certainly true that this school
owes much of its success to her. With Mrs. Terrill's departure
from it, there will go one of the most cultured, refined and lovable
characters in the educational world. We will-always have a warm
spot in our hearts for Mrs. Terrill.

"Cut Out Your Fun!"
LD DAME CLOTHO originally intended Mr. Phelps for the
world's greatest tragedian, but Sister Lachesis came along
and gummed the plot by developing him into the greatest
living "Old Roman". Mr. Phelps holds the indoor record
for speed in correcting prose papers. lt's almost a case of the
deleting hand being quicker than the eye. And as for such child's
play as Cicero, Virgilque, paugh and several fies, the only time
he has need of either of those books is in assigning the lessons.
He has gotten at his results in Latin by really novel methods.
Animate illustration is the favorite way of impressing a point. For
instance, who could ever forget the dative of possession once Mr.
Phelps had held a nickel out at arm's length, crouched very low,
and thundered, "A-nickel-is-TO-ME!" So effective is this that
more often than not a boy who has been imbued with the Phelpsian
idea spends his time rushing about the place and saying, "You
are to me, Steve!"
Mr. Phelps never really lost his temper but once and that
once was when Armstead Brooks broke up class by asking him
if his little eight-year-old son talked Latin. Except for occasional
run-ins with Bunk Volk, he is never without his seraphic smile.
As the result of our Latin master's sterling manhood, his great
ability as a teacher, and his great capacity as a friend, there is not
a boy in this school who doesn't love Mr. Phelps.

"Read Your Directions"
HE person who has taken a course under Mr. Farrar never
fails to realize that he has had no sinecure. If there are any
four things in the school which are hard, those things are,
Chemistry, Trig., Second Form Algebra and Physics. Of
these four, two are Mr. Farrar's-Chemistry and Physics. The man
who has that sort of record in the Terrill school can claim to have
all prep schools and many colleges backed off the boards in that
line. Mr. Farrar teaches about every other thing in school, and
with the same result: Each class must know its lessons or it won't
get by. So much for Mr. Farrar's teaching.
, A very entertaining person in class, Mr. Farrar surpasses him-
self out of class. He always was equal to any pasage'at repartee,
and so far as we know never came off the vanquished. Not long
since, "Corn" Morgan was insisting to Mr. Farrar that he was a
hard worker. "You don't ever catch me idle, do you?" he
"Well, no: you are pretty slick about that, all right," came back
the reply. With such a tongue, adapted ideally to sarcasm, he
could turn litmus paper red.
Mr. Farrar has been in the school so long that the place would
be unrecognizable should' he not be here.
"Take Your Seats at the Board, Please"
IBERNIAN and Highbrowian, that's Mr. Ferguson. He's
theman who, 'when in charge of study hall for a period,
works trig, for one boy, scans Virgil for another, sees to
Ligon's Greek, conjugates a French irregular verb for the
asking, talks German without being asked, and reads proof for the
"News," the while giving Slaughter his English UD."
But the trait upon which his more enduring fame rests and will
rest is the way he can remain perfectly oblivious to his surround-
ings for an indefinite period of time. Hence, his well-earned
soubriquet, "Most alert of all the faculty." He is the absent-
minded professor of song and story. For instance, the time he
met Twin outside of school and asked him where he thought he'd
spend the summer and Twin replied he dicln't know, to which Mr.
Ferguson rasped: "Don't know! Don't know! Zero!" Which
is also an index to his classroom methods.
Last year, after Mr. Ferguson had conducted his first recitation,
Paxton came out of his English class and gave utterance to a con-
viction. "Ain't he a peach!" Thus showing what he had learned
in that class besides English. "Ain't he a peach!" has said every-
body else who has ever known Mr. Ferguson.

"Less Responsive Reading-Please."
F l9l5-I 6 is memorable for anything at Terrill School, it is the
advent of Mr. Bogarte, first as the head of the Mathematics
Department, and second, as the future head of the school.
After many disappointments in teachers of mathematics, we at
last have a man to teach us who is bigger than his position.
And what holds for his professional ability, holds as well for
his gentlemanly qualities. He's so gentlemanly that he makes us
feel like a bunch of thugs when we don't get up his work as well
as we might. ln this way he gets the same, if not better, results
than he would by driving and browbeating. l-le is certainly no
less a scholar and instructor than a gentleman. His information is
very far-reaching, not only in his special line, mathematics, but
also on any subject you might hit upon in loaflng over the pages
of the Sxy-Zyxomma volume of the Britannica. I-le added a great
deal to the interest of his mathematics classes by once in a while
lecturing on such things as "Vocational Fitness," "The Fourth
Dimension" and "Digestion in Its Relation to Grading Papers."
We know that with Mr. Bogarte in charge next year the school
will keep right on in its steady, progressive march. One thing
that might make us seniors willing to trade places with the Third
Formers is that that would give us another year with lVlr. Bogarte.

HE above is not really Mr. Bassett's favorite saying, although
he did say it once. It is simply a character study in two
words. For several years Mr. Bassett has been teaching and
studying French and German in the school. He mastered
the grammars of those languages at the University of Michigan, and
the pronunciation of them through the l. C. S., or so some sayl
Mr. Bassett's renown as an athlete even eclipses his reputation
as an instructor. In the faculty basket-ball game he was quite a
stumbling block to the 'varsity team.

He is now a changed man. just witness-

"A Little More Pep There!"
nearly lost Mr. Davis this year, or so the campers all say.
lt seems he cooked up a whole bucket-full of beans by a
process which makers of kiln-dried bricks would give the
very bonds out of their desks to know. Furthermore, when
everyone else declined them, saying that they personally preferred
to live, the pride of the man made him pelt his internal workings
with that entire mass of bean ore. It didn't take him long to realize
that it would have been better for him to swallow his pride rather
than those legumes.
Mr. Davis isn't always so indiscreet. About the only indiscre-
tion he indulges in these days is attempting to teach l..igon Greek
right on top of trying to make a basket-ball player of "Wine."
If any one could have done either, Mr. Davis would have been the
man. Last year he developed a champ basket-ball team from fel-
lows who, with few exceptions, hadn't played more than one year.
This year's championship team is some more of his handiwork.
He deserves all the credit in the world for his coaching of these
teams. Track work is also in his province and he has done good
work with the material in hand.
All in all, we couldn't get along without Mr. Davis. The fact
is, we're pretty glad he got the decision over those beans.

"HERE YOU ! !"
HERE are more ways than one to skin a cat. Did you know
that? Well, it's so. Also, did you know a potato could fall
out of a wagon in different ways? If you have any doubts
about these profound axioms, perhaps Mr. Adkisson could

application-proof-both mathematics and baseball. According to
Coach joshua, if you can't get a hit, get hitg in either case the result

Mr. Adkisson is a University of Virginia man. While in college,
one out of his many sports was gym work. At this, he and his
teammates became so proficient that they made a tour of the coast
putting on exhibitions before interested audiences. It is conserva-
tive to say that Mr. Adkisson was the star until his bold daring led
him to heights too precipitous and an untimely fall resulted in his
breaking both shoulders. This, of course, ended his career as a
gymnast, but soon his versatile genius sought other fields of action
and we next hear of him on the diamond.
Mr. Adkisson is one of those rare beings called a. character.
His fearlessness and intrepidity are well known throughout the
school and woe to the boy who misbehaves in his presence, for Mr.
Adkisson evidently believes that action is more effective than words.

HE. name of "Mrs. Walling" stands for music in the Terrill
School. It is Mrs. Walling who annually turns out a credit-
able Glee Club and Little Boys' Chorus from some of the
most unpromising material imaginable. It is Mrs. W'alling
who leads the orchestra in chapel and who thumps that resounding
chord on the piano which brings every body to his feet in one big
surge. Although she conducts no regular classes, Mrs. Walling is
as busy during the day as the next one, giving private lessons in
piano, mandolin, guitar and violin. Her efforts in making the voices
of a bunch of huskies who originally couldn't sing but did sound
plausible, are nothing short of heroic. For a while, in the early part
of this year it looked as if Mrs. Walling was going to be the captain
of a new kind of ball team, only this one would have a "W" where
the first ul" usually is. By infinite patience she got her proteges
into a condition bordering on the vocally possible and impressed
them with the fact that there's nearly as much difference between
"A" and "D" on the scale as on the bi-weekly report slip. ln a
remarkably short space of time, Mrs. Walling has reduced the num-
ber of separate voices from about twenty to the regular four.
That's achievement enough for- any one.
MAN as handsome as the above picture would indicate,
should by rights haunt a photographer, instead of kicking
over the traces about having his picture made, as this cam-
era-shy person did. He threatened to ruin the book by not
allowing his picture to go in. He said he had a reputation as a
tough guy to maintain and besides that, a flossy photograph might
break in on his run of luck. With much coaxing, he was finally
brought around and since then he has been one of the staunchest
supporters of this book, even going so far as to coerce his ge-
ography class into getting one apiece.
What Mr. Hammond says to the little kids goes, to a certain ex-
tent, but from September to November what he says to the football
fellows goes absolutely. I-le's the czar, martinet and chief engineer
of our football steam roller. Dressed in a woolen jersey and an old
pair of baseball trousers, topped by a white felt hat of surpassing
dinkiness, he is at his best. His coaching is Billy Sundayism applied
to footballg action, tongue-lashing and slang carried to their highest
degrees of perfection, all directed by a consciousness trained in
every department and ramification of the game.

ICE has its W. Sidis, but Terrill has its N. D. Goehring.
We're almost tempted to quote something about "and still
the wonder grew that so young a head could carry all he
knew," but Mr. Goehring might not like it and if this book
is to go well it must have the faculty with it.
Mr. Goehring spent his first day at Terrill explaining quietly, but
firmly, that he was not a house boy nor yet a town boy, so help him!
but the new assistant English instructor. Something in his enuncia-
tion rather than in his appearance told us that he spoke truth and
ever after we have pointed to him as an example of how a few
birthdays may be made to go a long way.
If Mr. Goehring is especially distinguished for anything it is his
basketball playing. In the faculty game his was the strength of
twenty men because his complexion was clear. The article of guard-
ing he put up was the feature of that game. The way he mixed
it up there should have left a favorable impression upon the mem-
bers of his classes.
Anyone that knows Mr. Goehring will admit that by his ability
and his amiability he has found a place in the regard of all Terrill-

HE foregoing is a prime example of that figure of speech which
Messrs. Phelps and Ferguson spend so much effort in impress-
ing upon us-to-wit, transferred epithet, for it applies not
so much to Mr. Ramsden as to Mr. Ramsden's mustache-
that-was. That growth was a very transient affair which seemed to
run on a definite schedule, Schedule "Kg" for instance, if you
wish to go deeply into the matter--it's wooley enough for that-but
getting back on the main line, it's actual schedule is something like
Monday-Every indication of a mustache.
Tuesday-Worst suspicions confirmed.
Wednesday-Bristles reach their majority.
Thursday-Remorseg Gillette gains decision.
Friday-Mustache discouraged and cowed-completely eye-
Saturday-Mustache crushed to earth, shall rise again.
Sunday-Young growth sees moving picture show for first time.
And so on in a never-varying cycle, repeating itself much as
Mr. Ramsden's specialty, History, repeats itself.
The little time Mr. Ramsden has been with us, he has impressed
us as being one of the best sort ever. He is totally in sympathy
with the boys, although he doesn't make a point of emphasizing
the fact that he was a boy himself once. With Mr. Ramsden's ad-
vent another camp presided over by a Terrill teacher is available to
boys in the school. If Mr. Ramsden runs true to winter form, he
ought to have "some" camp.

NE of the best instructors and one of the most popular teach-
ers ever in the Terrill School was lost when Mr. Hirt was
forced to retire from school work last fall because of illness.
Mr. l-lirt was head of the Department of History. His use
of an outline in connection with the study of history made it more
simple and clear. He had a knack of, impressing even the smallest
details upon one's mind, and a year of history with Mr. I-lirt was a
year of knowledge of the history studied. l-le was broad-minded,
good. natured, and fair. He had the respect and admiration of
every boy as well as of all the teachers. He had been in the school
a number of years and during this time had won a place in the
hearts of all who knew him. There may be better instructors than
he fwhich we doubtj, but there is only one Mr. I-lirt. l-le left the
school in bad health. We hope to see him back next year as strong
as Hercules, as healthy and robust as a prize fighter. S. S.

A Long Deferred W ora' of Appreciation
E who are about to graduate, salute you, O members of the Faculty.
Now that we are no longer dependent upon you for grades and
favors, we can unburden ourselves of many things which, coming
at any other time, would cause us to be numbered among that
most despised and miserable clan, "The Jerkersf' All that a Terrill boy
holds cursed, all that he feels he can afford to look down upon, be he
himself ever so lowly, is summed up in that one worcl, "jerker." The jerker-
branding habit started out to be reasonable, but has come to be anything
but that. It started out to abolish an existent evil and the rebound of it has
caused a greater and more noxious evil to take root in its stead. Thus
much by way of showing our position. What we want to say here is that,
relieved for once of the scorn of two hundred boys, we wish to doff our
respective hats to you and tell you what good folks you are. In many in-
stances you're not only good folks, but you're good fellows as well-
therein proclaiming your independence of the old pedagogical notion that a
teacher is merely a taskmaster, a being aloof, whose dignity would totter
to its fall at the slightest unbending. We want you to know that we ap-
preciate you and your efforts for us during this and past years, to assure
you of our respect, to promise that we shall have pleasant remembrances
of you in years to come, and to hope for you the best of good fortune in
whatever you undertake. Cheap enough, all this, as words, but valuable
when those words are meant as we mean them.

HE Third Form this past year, as a whole, has been a great credit to
the school. Its members have stood for a high ideal of conduct and
honesty throughout the entire year and this class takes the cake for
getting their lessons. Fewer D's were chalked up against this class,
considering the number of members, than against any other class in school.
Not only along this line does the class stand out pre-eminently in the annals
of the Terrill School, but in athletics it has something to be proud of. It
furnished the football team with the best prep school end and the basketball
team with the best center in the State. Others of its numbers also took
a large part in the athletic life of the school, winning fame for the school
and being a credit to their class. The Third Form is the only form who can
boast of a really handsome young man: who by the way, was about the
loudest-mouthed boy in the school. We have reference to one Charlie Fox
Witwer. He would be a great help to any class.
Let the members of the Third Form remember that the duties, worlr
and responsibilities of a Senior will soon fall upon their shoulders. They
will have to work hard to keep up the good name and maintain the stand-
ards which Senior classes of previous years have establishedg but they will
have the material and 'the brains and what is more, the personal ability to
accomplish this end. The Fourth Form gives its best wishes to these juniors
and are rejoiced to turn over their place of honor and prestige to such a
promising class on whom they can fully depend to maintain the reputation
of a Senior Class.

UST let any member of the school tell you what he thinks of the Second
Form. You will hear nothing but praise and glory and most of it is
due these boys who constitute the Second Form. Perhaps as far as
studies go, this form shows a poor record, thanks to Leon Dargan and
a few others, and with due allowance for Second orm Algebra and French:
but this is about as smart a bunch of fellows as there is in the school. They
are also liked, both by those above and those below them, better than any
form. If you have noticed, there is hardly a group of boys talking together
at the noon period or any other time that has not one or more Second Form
boys in it. There is a reason for this popularity. It is the boys themselves.
Never has a more generous, unselfish bunch of students ever happened to
be in the same class as the ones who are in the Second Form. While not
shining especially brightly in athletics this year, most of the second team
stars were members of this form and in Will Allen they have one of the most
promising back field men who ever wore the Black and Gold. Much is
expected from this form in the next two years and, with the right spirit and

HESE. young men have hardly had time to find themselves, for they
have been busy trying to keep up with their work and realize that at
last they were counted as in the upper school. This is a conscientious
bunch of young men who go about their work with purpose and de-
termination. Not being old. nor large enough to compete with the higher
forms for places on the first team, these boys made up a large part of the
two smaller football teams composed of house boys and town boys, and
much excellent material for the first teams of the future has lreen spotted
by those who have seen them in action. Ralph Jester proved himself the
best all 'round athlete among the smaller boys one summer on the camp by
winning the Junior Cup. Al Joyce has been on every Honor Roll and has
never done a misdeed that might break his mother's heart. We could
continue the enumerating of individual qualities, but it is boresome to the
readers, so we will quit by prophesying that, within a short time, the First
Form of the present will be the leading form of the school.

OTHING in particular is known about the lower school by the upper
classmen, and only a very few statements concerning these boys
are able to be made with any show of truth. The Middle Formers
of course are all looking forward with the greatest pleasure to the
time when they will be in the Upper School. The High Under Form has
the best marble player in the school and this boy's brother has already been
chewing tobacco for seven years. The Low Under'Form speaks for itself
and asks more questions than the other six forms combined. Lee Slaughter
is wondering when he will get out of the Low Under Form and "Pee Wee"
Caraway is wondering when he will stop growing. These boys will soon
be heard from though, and we would not be surprised if there was a poet
in the bunch. '

The Terri!! School News
N 1913 the School News was first brought forth in the idea that with a joke or so
added, the old lesson bulletin might be made self-supporting. By the industry
of Mr. Ferguson and a few boys, the News has now come to be not only self-
supporting but also a Terrill revenue. Be that as it may, if not as it should
be, the News is a great factor in our weekly school life. Besides furnishing out
lesson bulletins, which, as some one has figured up, are referred to about five
thousand times a week by the two hundred and some odd boys, it records every
happening of importance during the week, such as athletic developments, chapel
talks and Y. M. C. A. meetings. In addition, every issue contains an editorial
or so. Sometimes a few jokes worthy of the name creep in, but if the truth were
known, a reference work on the jokes would disclose something remarkable, for lol
Bud Fisher's name leads all the rest. However, this is not to say that Mr.
Ferguson doesn't keep up his end, for a great number of pointed paragraphs and
quaint quips, as Winfrey would say, emanate from his pen. He, with the "in hoc
signo" of the blue pencil conquers every attempt of the unlettered to throttle the
President's American in print. He is the gentleman who gets Thursday afternoon
happenings into the Friday afternoon News. That's the sort of thing that pumps
life into the paper and we congratulate Mr. Ferguson on his speed and results.
If we sought further for reasons for congratulating Mr. Ferguson, the logical
selection would be the present Editor-in-Chief of the News. Howard has piloted
the paper for two successive and successful years. The most remarkable thing
about it all is that he has done so much with apparently so little effort. To
see Jay busy on the paper gives one the impression that it is the most automatic
and sinecure-ish job to hold down in the world. We say "gives the impression,"
and purposely. That's as far as it goes. Howard's job means work and lots
of it. His characteristic concentration makes work appear to be what it is not.
jay's brilliant scholarship and athletic ability will sooner be forgotten here than
his signal service on the News-which is tantamount to saying, "never."
Every year there has been a new "find" on the News staff. This year's Find
is none other than L. Sherwood Sabin. The way that boy has handled the athletic
end of the paper would have done credit to a Bulger or an Edgren. Most of
the actual writing on the News has fallen to his lot and of all this writing
not one poor piece, not one unsatisfactory game description has come from his
Turner Garner is another boy who has filled an exacting position with all
merit. If anything, he, along with Rutherford, has had the least spectacular and
most thankless job of all. It consists of writing up the Y. M. C. A. meetings
and the few and far between happenings worthy of note in the house. The work
has been done with his characteristic conscientiousness and thoroughness.
As has been intimated, Rutherford is another who makes the best of harsh
conditions. His stuff is usually very readable.
Patton Matiheifs last autumn blossomed out as a graceful versiiier. With the
return of spring, he should get off quantities of sigh-sky stuff.
Ligon, our "Upward and Onward, Fellows" expert, has exhorted himself into
the hearts of us all. He goes to the mat with sin in general and school boy
vices in particular and, if reports are true, he has succeeded in making "Chief"
Elliott stop cursing.
Norifirally, Lcuis Reinhardt is just on the Business Committee, but actually he
is on We editorial board, too, breaking cut every now and then with an inter-
The work done by a very few of the Business Committee has kept the News
well stocked with ads. There are, in a way of speaking, seven boys engaged
in publicity rustling, only three of whom have done anything worthy of men-
tion. Leake McCauley, Ed Moore and Webster Atwell have rendered yeoman
service on the paper and have amply made up for the idleness and lack of interest
on the part of the others. Leake deserves special mention as he has devoted a
large part of his time to the work.
Altogether, this year's News has been, as it should have been, the best ever
put out in the school, and the boys and Mr. Ferguson who have devoted them-
selves to it throughout the year, need never be ashamed of their work.

Along about December lst, the Senior Class awoke from its lethargy and held
ite first meeting. At this meeting the Business Manages and Editor of the Class
Annual were appointed. They were permitted to pick their assistants and im-
mediately there was an embarrassment of riches, for with but seven or eight places
to be filled, there were upwards of twenty boys in the class well suited to the-
work. The ones that were selected have given eminent satisfaction. To get down
Ed Thomas has been on the job every hour in the twenty-four, hustling ads,
writing to various firms, keeping straight intricate accounts, going through a lot
of routine work, and, last and most important, trying to keep his assistants busy.
Speaking of busy assistants naturally leads one to speak of great aides, from
which it is but a step to the discussion of J. Paxton Matthews and his authoritative,
unabridged compendium of football information... Like "Coke" Wimmer, he is a
great football player who has turned his genius to the writing of gridiron epics.
This book would be much the poorer if it didn't contain the lucidly and forcefully
expressed thoughts of Paxton.
Going back to the business end of the book, we iind a boy, who, although
not a senior, has secured twice as many ads as the combined ads of the two duly
appointed Senior Assistant Business Managers. Hustling is his long suit. He
has a way of talking people into buying space that is the result of an exacting
apprenticeship on the News. It wouldn't be at all surprising if he went out and
got the post ofiice to advertise its line of two-cent stamps. Sloane McCauley is
the one to whom we refer. He should make a fine business manager next year.
One of our most reliable space-iillers has been J. Howard Ardrey. When
he is asked to get a write-up within two weeks, he usually has it ready the next
day, a rarity in any line. Furthermore, he has done uniformly good work.
Ed Moore, another boy not in the Senior Class, bade fair to prove himself
one of the most useful assistants on the staif. Night after night he walked a
couple of miles to assist in mounting the pictures in this Annual and to do the
art work that has so enlivened these pages. The class of '18 cannot choose a,'
better editor for their Annual than Ed. He has had more experience in "Annualling"
than 'most any one else in the school.
Some of the most difficult writing in this book has fallen to the lot of Turner
Garner. In no case did he fail to make good.
Without "Chic" Conrad, we should have been artistically lost. With his engi-
neering training, he has turned out art work that would feature any college Annual.
A-t the last moment he came to our rescue with a badly needed full page drawing.
We can't thank Chic in words for what he has done for this Annual.
Just to show what keen character analysts we were, we picked out Martin Winfrey
at the- beginning of the year to be a star ad hustler. We also asked him to get al
picture of "Hank" for these pages. In the one undertaking! he was about as suc-P
cessful as in the other. You will find his "Hank" picture on page 215.
The photographic end of the Annual was taken care of by Hal Noelke. For a'
couple of months Hal with his camera and tripod was a familiar figure about thd
yard. His pictures are well focused and timed. The basket ball action pictures
are perhaps the best examples of his work.
The editor has done his limited best to perform his duty. If this book is a
success it will be because it has been blessed with the concerted efforts of the fore-
going boys. The editor here wishes to acknowledge his indebtedness to them.

HE Y. lVl. C. A. of the Terrill School originated in the fall of l9l4. lVlr.
R. D. Bowden was then the leader. At first the programs consisted
for the most part of talks by Mr. Bowden, lVlr. Terrill and other teach-
ers, and songs by the boys. But as interest grew, the members began
to be more independent of outside help and to take the responsibility of
a program upon themselves. After the association had been started two
or three months, the membership was divided into two groups led by Buck
Wvnne and Chief Elliott. A contest ensued between the two divisions,
which caused a great deal of interest and was a source of much help to the
Y. Nl. C. A. Each group had charge of the meeting of the entire Y. lVl. C. A.
every other week. Points were given on the number of talks made and
on their excellence. Chief's division won and as a reward the boys took a
syvim one Friday night after study hall in the pool of the down-town Y. Nl.
The last meeting of the school year was held at White Rock May 2, 191 5.
After the meeting the boys had supper close to the lake. Perhaps the most
fun of all was the ricle there and back.
ln the fall of 1915, one week after the opening of school, the Y. M. C. A.
started anew. Every house boy but one joined and there was excellent promise
of a good year's work. lnstead of having the whole membership at one meet-
ing on Sundays, two divisions were formed, one to meet at five o'clock and
the other at five-thirty. Every fourth Sunday both divisions rnet together
for an hour, at five. Harold Emerson and Bill Rutherford were elected presi-
dents for the first term.
October IZ, the Second Division invited the First Division to go to Gill
Well for a swim. Of course, they accepted and the next Friday night study
hall was let out at nine o'clock, and a bunch of house boys, feeling about the
happiest they had in a long time, got in the truck and had a merry, but not
exactly peaceful, ride out. Naturally the boys enjoyed it, for it was such
a change from the ordinary course of a house boy's life.
November, the twenty-second, at a joint meeting, Mrs. Alexander was
present and whistled several pieces.
The second week in january of l9l6, the members were divided into two
new groups, with Bill Thurman and John Berry as leaders.
The Y. lVl. C. A. of the Terrill School has been, since its organization in
l9l4, one of the best mediums of really getting acquainted with fellows in
the whole school. It is there that you can determine a fellow's interest in
the schcol and in its various departments. It is the finest place in the
world to see the amount of ambition that a boy has for himself. It has been
a great help to those boys who, although they do not consider themselves
capable of entering the oratorical contest, want a place where they can
have some chance of speaking before others. The Y. M. C. A. "Round

Table" talks give a boy an opportunity to get up voluntarily and express his
thoughts upon the subject assigned for discussion, whether it be only in a
sentence, or in a talk of several minutes.
Our hope is that during the coming school year the new boys may
make the Y. lVl. C. A. even more of a success than it has been in the past,
and that they may make it a place where the boys will want to go for their
own development as well as for the sake of helping others.

HE truth of the saying, "Music hath charms," cannot be denied by
anyone who has enjoyed hearing the Terrill School Orchestra Hin
action" during the past nine months. It is a rare thing to find such
an orchestra even in college, but a still rarer occurrence to discover
it in a prep school. As we are an "exceptional" school, of course we can
boast of an "exceptional" orchestra.
As all other great and worthy institutions have an humble beginning,
so it was with this organization. At first consisting of one instrument, a
piano presided over by Mrs. Terrill, it soon proved itself an absolute neces-
sity. ln l9l2 Mrs. Walling, one of the head master's sisters, arrived and
immediately took the orchestra in charge. At her coming, new spirit was
instilled into the organization and it was only a very few months until our
orchestra compared favorably with any band of prep school musicians in
Mrs. Walling has not only great musical talent but also possesses that en-
viable quality of cheerfulness and friendship which soon draws all the fellows
toward her, and makes them eager to excel.
Bill Briggs, that jovial and well known "slip horn" artist, soon joined
the organization and this year he has rendered invaluable service on the afore-
said instrument. This rotund gentleman plays with exceptional ease and
ability and is one of the main stays of the orchestra.
This season marked the arrival of Mr. Bogarte in our midst, bringing
with him his cornet and cheery smile. Needless to say he, too, is an excellent
musician, and his clear, true notes are an indispensable asset in balancing
up the brassy accompaniments of the two "heavies"-Briggs and Thurman.
The violin division has certainly been well attended to in the persons of
Joe Becton and Mr. Adkisson, each of whom is a musician of no mean
ability. Mr. Adkisson also could sometimes be prevailed upon to render
his latest version of some ubarnyard melody," which was always greeted with
Bill Thurman was quite an asset, as out of his glittering brass tuba came
such resonant notes as a professional musician would have been jealous of.
His efforts, combined with those of Briggs, took care of the lower end of
the tune and fumished excellent tones around which to build the higher
harmony, -W. A. R.

ERHAPS one of the most interesting as well as instructive organizations in
the Terrill School is that of the Glee Club. Founded in 1913, its membership
has steadily grown until now it embraces a group of twenty-three songsters,
each of whom has unusual talent along musical lines. It is very seldom that
a prep school fellow can sing, but under the efficient leadership of Mrs. Walling such
sweet harmony has been attained as is rarely discovered among the average pre-
paratory clubs. The outlook was somewhat disheartening at the beginning of the
year, but with Emerson, Rutherford, Becton, Parsons and Thurman, veterans of
former clubs, around whom to build, what wonder that such sweet harmony has
been attained? Every Thursday the Glee Club meets en masse and there oftentimes
are given many valuable pointers by Mr. Terrill, who is a singer of no mean ability
himself. As an accompanist for their various selections the Club has a valuable
asset in the person of Mr. Bassett, who "tickles the ivories" in masterly fashion,
This man, though burdened with the usual encumbrances of a schoolmaster, has
given valuable time to the organization and much praise is deservedly his. Many
and varied are the selections rendered by these embryo singers, among which are
"Daniel," "The Pope" and "The Tack," to say nothing of the much-beloved and
time-honored melodies-"Way Down South" and 'Tse Gwine Down South to Die."
Taken as a whole, this has been a grand and profitable year for the Glee Club
and, though no Crrvfos cr Scottis have developed as yet, the voices of many are
inclined along that line. The Club owes a great debt of gratitude to Mrs. Walling.
In fact, all that it has been and accomplished has been due entirely to her ardent
endeavor and persistent perseverance in its behalf. A very necessary, as well as
enjoyable. branch of the Glee Club is that of the "Little Boys' Chorus." These
songsters are chosen from boys in the lower school and are also under the leader-
ship of Mrs. Walling. They play a very important part in the musical life of the
school and on commencement night render several selections, W. A. R.

Oratory and Debate
HE prediction of last year's Terrillian that the Oratorical Contest would be
the "keenest in the school's history" was proved true on the afternoon of May
the twenty-first when the actual contest took place. From the time when the
full-toned voice of jack Beall opened the program with the "Address on the Death of
Garfield," till the last words of the "Eulogy on Henry W. Grady" were delivered by
the suave William Coleman Thurman, were the listeners held intent with interest in the
things said and with anxiety and doubt over the final outcome of the battle of words.
It was closely and hotly contested, and when it was learned that the decision of the
jutsges would not be announced until later, perceptible disappointment fell on the
The judges were the Rev. Laurence Cohen, Mr. Edward T. Harrison and Mr.
Edward Crane: and their decision, as announced by Mr. Terrill that evening at the
Commencement Exercises, had been difficult to form. The victor was Richard Allen
Knight, his subject, "The Death Penalty," by Victor Hugo. The reward, aside from
the glory of the task and the effort and the success, was a handsome gold medal given
by Mr. Gross R. Scruggs. .

The zest and vigor displayed by the participants in the debate was no whit be-
hind that of the Oratorical Contest. Along with these qualities was revealed a force
of reasoning and a power of driving to a logical conclusion that would have done
real credit to those much more experienced in argumentation. The interest in the
occasion was made more genuine from the fact that a real live question was discussed
and not some old formula that would appeal only to those who still entertain grave
doubts about the rotundity of the earth. This subject was, Resolved: That the'
minimum wage schedule for unskilled workers shall be adopted severally for the
states of the United States.
The affirmative phase of this question was presented by Paxton Matthews and
Louis Hexter, while Ernest Ligon and Richard Knight strove to tear down their
defense and substitute a more just wage schedule. This the latter pair succeeded
in doing, as the decision of the judges was given them.

interest will center mainly in this event. We append the list of entrants and a partial

Foot-ball is based upon three things-perception, conception and
deception. Upon these three as a foundation is reared the com-
pleted structure by ejfective execution. Given these th ree, and a system
cannot failg for it is founded not upon men, but upon verities ana'
truths. Carl S. Flanders, Yale Foot-ball Strategist.
T the beginning of the past football season some of the old men were
disappointed at the easy work-outs. They could not understand
why there was so little tackling practice, so little blocking work,
so little hard running, so much passing and kicking, and O, so much
talking. As the season advanced, there was still little hard work. True
there was enough time spent at the dummy now, there was enough drive
in the running of signals, but that was early season stuff. By now we should
have been scrimmaging every afternoon and finishing off with a five-time trip
around the field. Whoever heard of a real football team scrimmaging only
two fifteen-minute periods each week?
And the plays that little coach gave us! If he did not spend the whole
afternoon drilling on that simple old shoot off tackle which we all had
played ever since our first kid's team, he would practice us in the lateral
pass. The sad case of Hincky had proved that that sissy adoption of
English Rugby would never do in the man's game of American football.
Yet here we were trying to learn tactics which Yale had been unable to
"l think we'll do well in croquet this year," was the poignant expres-
sion which one man gave to the I9l5 football prospects.
But we trampled all over Hubbard, Jacksonville, Bryant and Harding
we beat Arlington: we whipped Kirkley, and we were barely outclassed by
the Texas Shorthorns. Terrill won its sixth consecutive football championship
in the preparatory school class, and came in an ace of scalping a near-
college team besides.
Our best men were in perfect condition for the big games. Our plays
utilized every ounce of our team's strength. The opposition never knew
where those plays would fall.
We appreciate, now, the perception which recognized in the training
of our team the physical limitations of preparatory school boys. We thank,
now, the conception which invented truly purposeful plays. We bow,
now, to the deception which dazzled every team we met. All Terrill has
seen a real football "system" in actiong and all Terrill is hats off to

From full-back Chief Elliott captained
the 1915 Terrill football team. A good
player and a whole man, he was a leader
in practice and in actual play. In his
third year on the team he fulfilled the
trust which his teammates accorded him.
The Chief is fast and big, and these
two qualities together with his terrific
strength make him a hard man to check
in a line plunge. Nor do his efforts in
bearing the ball detract from his effect-
iveness as a defensive power. Playing
defensive center he was a bulwark in the
line. His work in repulsing the charges
of the heavy Kirklev backs was the de-

Billy Barry played this year an all
'round game at half-back that recalled
visions of his brother, Tom. He was a
mule for work-one of those half-backs
who are always begging the quarter for
the ball-and he was good for most any
need. His powerful driving stride won
yards through the line and off tackle and
the speed which lay hidden in that same
gait tore off long gains around end. On
the defense he came in sharply and
threw his man hard. Furthermore, un-

As a man who had never played foot-
ball at Terrill before, Harold Emerson
was sentenced to an apprenticeship on
the fourth team. He staid there until
the coach first saw him tackle.
Not a heavy man, nor strong, nor even
fast, Emerson played football on what
he carried in his head and heart. He
was well worth his salt from the fact
that he was the cleanest tackler in the
back Held and an unseliish and adroit
interfererg but he added to these accom-
plishments a stuttering, twisting sort of
run which made it almost impossible
for a tackler to lay hands on him.

eagerness caused him to become over-

Ardrey was so eternally in the right

literally into his hands. Without appar-

spectacular, but he made their accom-
plishment look easy.
His stocky strength and' deceptive
speed partly explain the success of this
wonderful little half-back, but the real

"end around" runs of a certain slight,
red jerseyed, black-haired boy in the last
Terrill-High School game, were glad
when this same end-a little heavier and
a little older-reported for practice at
Terrill. And Bob has lived up to all
that was expected of him.
Quiet and reserved, he is one of those
rare players who are at their best in an
emergency. With his speed, nerve and
knowledge of the game he is a good
football player alwaysg but when the
tension draws tight, he is a great foot-
ball player. Just as his twenty-yard
run opened the wav for our first touch-
down in the Kirkley game, so always-
whether the demand be for a dive at a
runner or a leap after a pass-he is
"there in a pinch."

Pure speed in the person of Louis
Paine is what beat Little Terrill when
that aggregation crossed swords with
Little St. Matthews six years ago. The
next two years Paine played left half-
back on Little Terrill, and those same
cross-field, stiff-arming trips bewildered
their small boy opponents. This year
Doc returned to Terrill. In 1915 the
simple receipt, "send two plays into the
line then turn Doc loose around end,"
proved as effective as of yore for the
winning of football games.
Built in the proportions of the made-
to-order half-back and blest with a half-
back's mentality, all Doc lacked at the
beginning of the season was the ability
to block and tackle. Before the season
closed the old dog had learned these
two very difficult new tricks.

however, this quarter-back evinced no

The Little House Boys' Football Team
LTHOUGH this little team played two games only, it showed in
both of them that evidently its members must have done some hard
practicing. Otherwise they could not have had the team work which
they showed. The first game was won from the town boys by
a score of 27 to 6, and in the last the House Boys completely ran away
from the Dallas Cubs, scoring 32 points to their 6.
Paul Davis, ,the captain, played quarter-iback and held the position
down in fine style. He not only ran his team well, but when he got the
ball he usually scored at least 20 or 30 yards. Turner Garner, at full-back,
was a hard worker and never failed to gain while he was in possession of
the ball. F. M. Hammond, known as "Swivey," was the "Doc Paine" of
the little fellows, for when that boy got started he rarely stopped until
after he had made his touchdown. He played right half. Alfred Webber
played left half and was a fine man on defense. William Philp and Robert
Fee were substitutes for both right and left half and both were good men.
William Chilton, on left end, was about the fastest line man on the team,
and never failed to outrun and tackle his man. Wilburn Birchfield, on
the other end, was not only good on defense but also made many spectacu-
lar catches of forward passes. Luther Birchfield, at right tackle, played a
hard, steady game. John Bunyan Clayton, on the other side, was also a
hard worker, and broke up many a play that came through his way. Jim
Robnett played left guard some of the time, but was switched over to right
a few times, and in both positions he was good. Bill O. Skillman, at left
guard, was about the best line man there, and never was a line plunge
made through him. "Cake" Bowers played his right guard well and was
always ready to open a hole for a plunge through the line. Perry played
center. The substitutes were: Reagan Caraway, Walter Bradley, Volney
Hildreth, Tom Wharton and W. T. Waggener. Ellis Strain was not a regu-
lar member of the team, but ought not to be mentioned with the subs,
because "Anxious" worked hard and deserves a little more honor than a
sub. Then last, but by no means least, is the coach, Mr. Davis, who cer-
tainly deserves a great deal of credit for making such a good little team
out of such raw material. They are all thankful to him for his help.
The Edgar Perry above was one of the mainstays of the team, although
he modestly declines to say so. He held down the position of center and
did it well. Without him the team would have been in a bad shape.

HIS year the football letter men and even the whole squad had a more pleasant
season along every line than ever before, and especially in the way of ban-
quets. There were two banquets given to the letter men only by friends of the
team and then came the annual football banquet given by Mr. Terrill to the
whole squad. A few minutes before the game with the "Short Horns," Mr. Terrill
announced to the squad that, in case we won, Mr. J. H. Ardrey would take every
man who played to A. G. Fields' Minstrels-which happened to be playing here
that night-and later, to a banquet. Although the game was lost, in appreciation
of the nght and spirit which our team put up to the last blow of the whistle, Mr.
Ardrey generously treated the players to both show and feast. The minstrels
were fine and the dinner finer, that is in the eyes-or better the stomachs-of the
boys who were just breaking training. The table was spread in the English Tea
Room of the Adolphus Hotel and everything was lovely. At the end of the ban-
quet, Mr. Ardrey assuming the position of toastmaster, arose and said a few words.
He called upon Mr. Terrill, Coaches Hammond and Adkisson, Mr. Trenckman of
Princeton, who had ofliciated in the game, and Mayor Henry D. Lindsley, whom
the host had invited to be present. All the gentlemen responded in well chosen
and interesting words. just before breaking up, Captain Elliott proposed three
cheers for Mr. Ardrey, and the boys joined in with all their force, showing the
appreciation and gratitude they felt for the host.
A few weeks later, these same boys were invited to the home of Mr. M. H. Thomas,
where they were royally welcomed and fed. They all gathered long before the
allotted time, and were only too glad to sit down to a table spread so profusely with
the joys of life as was that one. One of the main attractions was a venison course,
the main item of which Mr. Thomas had himself shot while hunting in South Texas
a few days previously. Atl the end of the eating session the host took the Hoor
and told a few of the important events in his very varied life and gave some very
good advice which he had obtained in the business world. Mr. Terrill also made a
short talk and was followed by Coaches Hammond, Adkisson and Splawn and
also by Mr. Bogarte, who is a warm personal friend of Mr. Thomas.
Last, and by far the biggest and best of all the banquets, was the annual foot!
ball banquet given to the entire squad on the Friday night just preceding the Christ-
mas examinations. The table was spread in the Ladies' Ordinary at the Oriental
Hotel and was laid out in the shape of two T's together. At each plate there was a
souvenir place-card with the picture of the letter men on the cover and within the
names- of the letter men, coaches, scrubs, cheer leaders, toastmaster and speakers
for the evening. Between the first and second courses the "scrub pins" were given
out by Mr. Terrill to that clan of loyal workersg and, between the second and third
courses the letter men were given their gold footballs. During the meal, the large
silver football presented to the school by Linz Brothers and on which are engraved
the names of the players on all the Terrill championship football teams, was passed
around. At the close, Mr. M. B. Winfrey, the toastmaster of the occasion arose,
giving a short history of the success of the team and thanking Mr. and Mrs. Terrill
for their kindness. He then called upon Berry, Rutherford, Matthews, Strong and
Ardrey who in turn proposed toasts to the coach, scrubs, captain, team and the
school. Also the toastmaster called upon the coaches, Mr. and Mrs. Terrill, Mr.
Bogarte and Mr. Ferguson. "Coach" gave a very Fine example of stage fright and
all he could say was that little drama, "Gee! ain't it fierce? We ain't got no flag
for our revolution," which means absolutely nothing to the profane ear. Mrs. Terrill
said a few words of love and kindness to "her children" and then turned the floor

over to Mr. Terrill, who thanked the players from the depths of his heart for the
way in which they had helped maintain the glory and record of the Terrill School
on the gridiron. Captain Elliott then presented Mr. Hammond with a present from
the entire squad as a token of their appreciation for his successful work as a coach.
Ed Moore stood in his chair and the boys all joined in a "What" and then the happy
crowd broke up and the curtain was brought down upon the last act of another
highly successful season, in which, for the sixth time, a team wearing the Black and
Gold had won the championship of North Texas.
HIS year there has been more interest in the cheering, more student support
and more football fever manifest than in any other year. The cause is not
difficult to find. Before every important game there was a "Pep Rally"
held at the close of the day in which the cream of the forensicians got up on
their feet and exhorted and predicted and reason-feasted till every one was more or
less aroused from any apathy that he might have toward the game.
The originator of the idea, as far as Terrill School is concerned, was Ed Moore.
Besides being cheer leader he was toastmaster at these afternoon gatherings. In
this role he was the embodiment of consideration for those he called upon for
speeches, always giving them a day's warning, allowing the rest of us who were
not forewarned to enjoy the proceedings without the usual apprehension.
Besides the ever-good-for-speeches, Winfrey and Matthews, a great many other
word-wizards were brought to light, such as Mr. Bogarte, Louis Reinhardt, Mr.
Hammond, Mr. Adkisson and Ed Moore himself, who won immortal fame with his
rattle snake oil extravaganza. Although Mr. Adkisson didn't make the hit he made
at the Thomas banquet he gave a very interesting talk. Mr. Bogarte was never at
a loss for a catchy phrase with which to clothe hism ideas. Louis Reinhardt and
Mr. Davis both made Finished talks which dealt largely with the finish of the "Short
The result of these talks was that considerable enthusiasm was aroused, larger
attendance made possible and more organized support assured. Not only this, but
usually these rallies were hugely diverting of themselves. We hope that they will
come to be a part, not only of the football season, but of the other seasons as well,
in the years to come.

the first game with Bryant in Fort Vilorth
to the last game with the same team here
at homer ,flfhg fellows started off the season
on the.,..15th of January with lots of "pep" and
fight and finished their last game on the 19th of
February with a lightning burst of speed. The
team was the best that has ever represented the
Terrill School and throughout the entire season
they played superb ball. Every man kept in good
condition, and, with the wonderful coaching of
Mr. Davis, it is not surprising that such a record
was made as must be accredited to these wearers of the Black and Gold.
The season opened, ut supra dictum est, in Fort Worth with the Bryant School.
The game was played on an out-door court, which was also rather short, but the
curtain went down with the score 24 to 20 with Captain Newman's clan on the long

the idea that they were going to hang a defeat on the home guard,
but their plans did not materialize and they left with the short end
of a 31 to 17 score. The Baptists were weaker this year than last,
but this is not saying they had a weak team. It was one of the
best that we played. It put up a game iight, but were simply and
On the 26th of january, again going out of the prep school do-
main, the team locked horns with the fast Southwestern team.
The Methodists were swept from their feet by the speed and dash
displayed by the Terrill aggregation. They fought gamely and
hard, but could get nowhere, owing to the excellent guarding of
the Russell brothers. The outcome was never in doubt, and when
the final whistle blew the Terrill team had won the best game of
the entire season by a 44 to 8 score.
It rained hard and furious on Wednesday, January 26, and the
gym was flowing with water, but a game had been scheduled with
Hardin and it had to be played. We would not attempt to call it
a basket ball game, although it was played according to such rules.
It appeared to be more of a skating and sliding tournament than
anything else. Naturally, the game was extremely slow, but it
finally ended with the score 32 to 19 in favor of the Black and Gold.
The team went on its first and only trip the first week in Febru-
ary, traveling up to Atoka, Oklahoma, where they played two
games. They suffered the first defeat in two years in the first
game, by a margin of one point. The final score was 16 to 15. The
court was very small and there was no out-of-bounds, except on
the side where the spectators were seated, and the result was a rough and hard-
fought game. Every man on the team played hard, and with a little luck Terrill
would have won.
After enjoying the hospitality of Atoka people all day Saturday, the team de-
cided to express their thanks by showing them how to play basket ball. The boys
had become accustomed to the peculiarities of the court, and went into the game
with the determination to win. The speed and dash of the whole bunch carried
things by storm. During the last few minutes of play Atoka put on a final burst of
speedg but the lead was too great to be overcome, and the game ended with Terrill
in the lead, 18-13. In this game we clearly proved our superiority to the Okla-
homans, and both the home team and the spectators were unanimous in their opinion

that the brand of basket ball played by Terrill was far superior to that exhibited
by any other visiting team
After having had a week of only light practice and much recuperation from the
strenuous Oklahoma trip, the Terrill team ended the season on the 19th of February by
defeating the Bryant School a second time, the score being 35 to 16. The game, although
never in doubt, was fast and produced many thrilling plays. Bryant played hard
and, if her forwards had been a little more accurate in their goal shooting, the score
would have been much closer. On the other hand, the Terrill live hardly ever
missed a chance and took advantage of every opportunity.
Terrill can rightfully claim the prep school championship in basket ball for North
Texas. The strongest teams in this part were played and defeated. Terrill played
eight games, winning sixg and both lost games were lost by the margin of only one
point. Mr. Davis deserves unlimited praise for the success of the team. As a result
of his good work, another championship team was turned out to represent Terrill.
Coach Davis, Basket Ball
Coach Davis obtained his vast amount of basket ball knowledge while playing
with Central College. Later when he was taking graduate work at Michigan, being
barred by the athletic rules from the varsity team, he played 'on the freshman live.
Last year. at the beginning of the season, the prospects for a championship Terrill
basket ball team were not at all bright. But Mr. Davis was an unknown factor and
had to prove himself. It is needless to say that with only two experienced players
in the entire squad to begin with and with an exceedingly small number reporting for
practice, he turned out one of the best teams in the State. They won the champion-
ship of Oklahoma and defeated T. C. U. of Fort Worth by a larger score than did
the State University. They were only able to accomplish this because af the coach-
ing they received at the hands of Mr. Davis. This year the sledding was muchl
easier. Three of the five letter men were back, all of last year's second string meng
and some experienced men who were in school for the First time. Who should wonder
that with such material and with his wonderful ability for coaching, Mr. Davis
rounded out a team that cleaned up everything. Not only is Davis a basket ball
wonder, but he is a track man of some repute and helps along in this sport greatly.
Mr. Davis is a fine coach but a finer man, and is universally liked.
Captain Bub Newman is without competition at the position of center. Big,
strong, a natural player, he clearly outplayed his opponent in every game. Coach
Rix of Southwestern said that in his opinion Newman was the best center in the.
State. Besides just playing center, Bub was the best scorer on the team and was
therefore always closely guarded and, most of the time, held unmercifully by his op-
ponent. He never lost his broad smile and only fought all the harder when he
was being held. It was no uncommon sight to see him throw a basket with a man
on each arm. Baskets were his specialty and in the Hardin "sliding contest" he,
even got one from a sitting position. Bub knew more tricks than any man on the
team. He was usually hard to guard because of this and one man could never keep
him from throwing a basket. As a captain, Bub was a prince. Always encouraging
his men and always giving a word of praise when one of them made a good play.
He never tried to exert his authority, but kept the boys together just by his perf-
sonality. Newman will be a great addition to any college he may choose to enter
and is sure to make a great athletic record wherever he may go.
J. Howard Ardrey played his second year as forward on the team, and was
strong in every department of the game. His wonderful speed made him difficult
to guard, and he developed skill in the use of the dribble which was of great value
to the team. He played all over the Floor, advancing the ball, breaking up plays,

and guarding his goal. He scored 20 field goals, many of which were sensational.

close.-1. eiwas unable 'to lot' te' t 'basket as accurately as he is accustomed to at
the beginning of the season, but in the Southwestern game he got his eye on the
basket and rolled up point after point. His long goals helped the team a great d al
in scoring, and when he was out with a sprained ankle, he was missed considerably,
especially at Atoka. In Hoor work, Strong was exceptionally good. He was all over
the court, and a ball was never taken down the court without Gervais touching it
somewhere in its course. He was also good at throwing fouls, and scored- a great
many of his points in this manner. -
Holford Russell, at guard, was the Find of the season. Starting out as ag substitute
forward, he was soon shifted to guard and there he stuck. Coach Davis said at the
beginning of the season that he was hunting for a guard that could shoot goals and
any one thus gifted was sure to have a place on the team. He tried Holford in a
game at guard and he played that position from then on. Holfordl is fast, with an
unlimited amount of wind and nerve, and has had a lot of basket ball experience.
He played his best in the Southwestern game and, often brought the audience tol
their feet with a spectacular goal from the middle of the field. He showed his nerve,
by playing two games at Atoka with a knee threatened with blood poisoning and
absolutely against the doctor's orders. This was Holford's first, and unfortunately
last year on the team, and he showed that he has great basket ball ability.
H. M. Russell was the other member of the Russell guards. He played a hard,
clean game all through the season and won his place on the team in the first game
at Fort Worth by his hard playing. H. M. played the back guard and let his
brother do most of the shootingg but when he got his hands on the ball and decided
he needed a basket to his credit, the other team saw a big six-footer tearing down
the floor unable to be stopped. He was not bad at shooting goals and would often
get two or three long ones in a game. Russell was a terror to the opposing forwards
and the fact that Atoka was held to so few field goals in both games, is due to his
remarkable ability to cover floor and keep the ball out of his territory. H. M. will
be back next year, and with this year's experience, should develop into one of the
best guards in the State.
Billy Liarry played a guard and at the last of the season, when Halford Russell
had been shifted into Strong's forward, he filled that guard in a remarkable way.
Billy was good at shooting goals in practice but rarely seemed to be able to locate the
baskets in a game, He played a steady game at guarding, however, his best being in
the last game with Bryant. He kept the ball out of Terrill territory all the time and
was never caught asleep. This was Barry's first year as a regular on the team, but
he will be missed a great deal next spring and it will take a mighty good man to
fill his place.
Chief Elliott was tried at guard during the first of the season, but later played
as a substitute forward. Bob is big and exceedingly strong, and at all times plays
to the extent of his ability. He starred in the last game with Bryant and also played
good ball in the Y. M. C. A. game.
Harold Emerson played a good forward at all times when in the game. He took
Strong's place in the first Atoka game and played a mighty good brand of basket
ball. He was also conspicuous in the Hardin game while he was in. With a little
more experience, Emerson should develop into a fme player.
Louis Reinhardt subbed at both guard and forward and was a pretty dependable
player. This was his second year on the squad, and with the experience accumu-
lated during these two years, should make a good first string man next spring.

HE 1915 baseball season was certainly one of the most successful seasons
ever enjoyed by a Terrill team. True, all the games were not won, but the
teamwork and headwork displayed by last year's men were the best in the
history of the school. The success of the team was due almost entirely to the
excellent coaching of Mr. Adkisson. Terrill has always had good coaches in all
branches of athletics. Baseball was no exception. Coach Adkisson developed a well
organized, smoothly running machine that presented a formidable attack to every
team it went up against. True, the material that turned out was most promising but
Adkisson perfected it, teaching each man to use his head in a pinch and giving valu-
able advice to every member of the squad.
The fielding end of the 1915 team was its strongest point and it is due to this,
wonderful defense that Terrill was able to win all but two of her games. Every
man on the infield was dependable. Captain Potts, a veteran of three years, held
down third and led his men to many a victory. Potts was fast, used his head, and
had an ideal third baseman's arm. He whipped the ball across the diamond with

an amazing amount of speed, turning into outs many slow rollers that ordinarily
would have resulted in infield hits. Ardrey at short was the surest man on the infield.
Although playing his first year, he was probably the best shortshop Terrill ever
had. Ryan also played short and was a good hitter. Bolanz held down the keystone
corner and enjoyed the most successful season of his career. He was also a veteran
of three years. Bub Newman at first was the ideal man for that position. Tall and
rougy but exceedingly fast, he pulled them in from every angle. Strong and
Montgomery did the catching. Strong had previously played in the outfield but was
developed into a first class receiver. In the outfield were Barry, Henry, Neely
and Webb. All were good, sure men, with excellent throwing arms. Neely was the
brainiest man on the team. He possessed an unusual amount of "baseball sense"
and was never known to pull a "bone," He is the most wonderful player that we
have ever seen anywhere. Although he has but one arm, he is better than most'
fellows with two.
Batting was perhaps the weakest point. There were, it is true, three men who
hit .300, but the rest were only mediocre. Newman, Strong and Neely were the
fortunate ones who succeeded in reaching that coveted mark.
The pitching staff was fairly good. Roberts was a good man, but inexperienced.
Dorsey was indifferent. He had a wide assortment of curves and a good change of
pace. When feeling in the mood, he was unbeatable. Otherwise, he was batted all
over the lot. Fernau was the star. He has a good curve and a fast ball with a
jump. Fernau used his head in the box and with another year's experience will be
a world beater.
The games were many and hard. There wasn't a game played in which the
team did not have to fight. Naturally there were some one-sided scores, but these
came only after the excellent teamwork of Terrill hadl broken down her opponent's
attack. Terrill finished the season with an average of .750, having won six and lost
two games. The championship was lost to Italy in a hard fought contest. Dorsey
pitched a beautiful game, getting fourteen strikeouts, but poor base-running cost
him the game. Even with the loss of this game, the season was a success, and Mr.
Adkisson deserves unlimited praise for the team he put into the field.

The 1916 Baseball Letter Men
Captain Lawrence Henry. This is Henry's second year on a Terrill team. Without
a doubt he is the best player in the school, has a good head, is a quick thinker, and
possesses plenty of pep. He plays any position on the diamond with equal ease. He
played in the outfield last year, but this season was placed on third, where he at once
proceeded to "deliver the goods." Although the Terrillian goes to press before the
baseball season is over, we are sure that when the curtain falls on the 1916 season!
Captain Henry will have led his team to many a victory.
j. Howard Ardrey, Jr., shortstop. Ardrey is also a veteran of two years. He is a fair hitter and
an excellent fielder. Jay was never lmown to miss a ball.
Campbell W. Newman, first base. Nothing much need be said about this big athlete. He is the
best all-round athlete in the school and handles first base like a big leaguer.
Billy Barry, outfield. Billy is another two years' veteran. His specialty is leading the team in hitting.
Harold Emerson, outfield. This was "Casey's" year of triumphs. Having made his letter in fost-
ball, he proceeded to do the same in baseball. He is a good hitter and an excellent fielder.
Werner Fernau, pitcher. Fernau has been Terrill's star slab artist for the past two years. He knows
how and when to use his head as well as his arm. He specializes on speed.
Halford Russell, pitcher. Russell was the curve ball pitcher and when his hook was breaking right,
he was unbeatable.
Chic Conrad, second. This is one of the brainiest men who ever donned a Terrill uniform. Second
base was well taken care of by this Eddie Collins, Jr.
Robert Chatham, catcher. Bob was first tried at third, but when it was learned that Strong would
be unable to catch this year, he was shifted behind the bat, where he found his natural position.
J. C. Davis, jr., outfield. Davis found a regular berth in centerlieldw and took care of it in regular Tris
Mack Chatham, outfield. Mack followed in the footsteps cf his illustrious brother and made his
letter. There is a great future in store for this young athlete.
Wilson Higginbotham, outfield. Higgy at last made his letter after three years of hard work, and
a worthier man could not be found. "Ugh" is an excellent hitter.
Although the Terrillian goes to press before the baseball season has made much
headway, yet the first three games have been enough to assure us that the season of
1916 will be one of success. It is true that two of these three games were defeats,
but both were by narrow scoresg one 4-2, the other 4-3.
The material this year was excellent. The outfield was well guarded by Barry,
M. Chatham, Emerson and Davis. All of these are good hitters and sure fielders.
The infield was composed of Newman, Conrad, Sabin, Ardrey and Henry. It is prob-
ably the best infield Terrill has ever had. B. Chatham and Higginbothgrn handled
the receiving end and the work of each was ,way above par. Fernau and Russell?
handled the hurling end in fine style. This excellent material, together with the ef-
forts of a fine coach, enabled the Black and Gold to put out one of the best teams in
its history. G. S.
Sherwood Sabin, second.

As baseball is the main sport during the spring term, the Terrill School has never if
taken part in interscholastic track meets. Last year during the Commencement week Q
the annual meet was held between the forms, and it proved to be a success, as is shown 1 7
by the fact that six school records were broken. Elliott won high honors with 12
points, and established new records in both the 400-yard and 880-yard dashes, even
though the track was slow. Beall won Hrst place in the 100 yard dash, tied for first
in the high jump, and was second in the shot put for a total of 12 points. Newman pl:
annexed 10 points with new records in the shot put and the discus. Becton garnered El
11 points, winning first place in the 220-yard dash and second place in both the 100-
yard and 440 yard dashes. Lee Brooks also secured 11 points with a first place in y,
the hurdles, a tie for first in the high jump, and a third in both the 440 yard dash
and the running broad jump. New records were also set by Herget in the pole vault
and by Montgomery in the standing broad jump. Potts won the running broad jump,
but fell short of the school record by three inches. Armstead Brooks equaled the jr?
lslchool record in the 50 yard dash and placed second in the 220 yard dash 'and the
Plans are being made as the Annual goes to press to enter interscholastic com-
petition during the present year. A relay team has been selected to take part in the 1
A. 8: M. meet for High Schools and Academies, and plans are under way to schedule V
a dual or triangular meet during May. Becton, Paine, H. and H. M. Russell, Lee
Brooks, Chatham, Martino, Thomas, Herget, Newman and Berry have shown such ' ,
ability as to insure a good team. 'f

The A. QM. Meet
The relay team which went to College Station to take part in the A. and M. track
meet for academies upheld the record of the Terrill School in athletics. Not only
did the four men bring back the banner for the one-mile relay, but with the held
of Newman in the weights secured 22 points in the meet, and placed third among
the academies of the State. Becton, who was the only man who had worked consistently
this season, drew the large share of the honors. He placed second in the 50 yard
dash, and in the prettiest race of the meet won the 440 yard dash. He also ran last
in the relay, finishing 50 yards ahead of his nearest competitor. Paine finished second
in the 100-yard dash and led off in the relay, giving his teammate a good lead. Chat-
ham and Russell both ran good races in the relay, each gaining 15 yards on his oppo-
nents. Newman won First place in the shot put and third in the discus. As only five
men were taken on the trip there were no entries in any of the events except in the
dashes and the weights. The good showing made in this First competition in inter-
scholastic track work has aroused a much greater interest in that branch of athletics.

A Seniors Day
H15 expose should open and does open with Big Ben ringing loudly
and insistently. But right here the difference between "should" and
"does" becomes something more than orthographic. The composite
Senior who figures in this piece should, by all the rights of a one-
act vaudeville sketch, start up on elbow and fling a pillow at the sleep-
dispeller, then settle back to enjoy the sleep of the justified until the fruit-
lessness of lVlother's oft repeated "John-n-y" evokes Father's effective
"johnl" The theoretical johnny figures that many are called but few get up.
Remember this is as it should be. What Terrill Johnny really does
when seven a. m. proclaims itself is to roll out when the little buzzer is in
mid air between the first and second strokes. Habit has brought about in
Johnny that most annoying form of insomnia, inability to sleep when it's
time to get up.
If Johnny is a l9!6 model, he starts dressing at one corner of the room
and moves towards the opposite corner with no retracings, accumulating
apparel after the manner of a Ford chassis accumulating parts in an as-
sembling plant. To secure mental energy he bolts a grape nut or two and
then bolts out of the house after grabbing his lunch or his Spaghetti money
according to his gastronomic fortitude.
The only signs of life on the outside of the school building as our
Senior approaches are Harmon in rubber boots washing off the walks, and
sparse groups of grammarians playing marbles. Inside the building, things
are beginning to look up even at this hour. "Doc," "Schwog" and "Dag"
are all there. The ubiquitous Twins are, of course, there and, when con-
versation tums their way, earnestly wish they were not.
"Can any of you fellers get this Virgil," opens up our Senior in the
"Course," answers "Doc," also in the current style.
"Can you work the second corollary in today's lesson?"
Have you gotten up your history notebook?"
"Well, what the blazes are you doing anyhow? jerking?" Consider-
ably warted johnny leaves just in time to run into a gang of house boys
coming in with toothpicks.

S a worker Harmon or, more
properly, "Herman," has the
well-known Trojans lashed
to the mast. The Huma bird
that never lights has nothing on him.
If any one has ever seen him in re-
pose, he failed to report it to the
proper authorities for the news value
there was in it. It was the same nine
years ago. That was when the school
was in its swaddling clothes and
needed a poly-proficient German to
take it in hand and keep things go-
ing. Harmon has done that so well
that he is left pretty much to his own
bent, in most matters. Mr. Terrill
was once heard to say that Harmon
was one person about the place
whom he couldn't control. Harmon
returned the compliment when he
was asked his opinion of Mr. Terrill.
The following are his exact words as they were taken down at the time in the
presence of witnesses: "Mn Terrill is the finest man l've ever worked for,
but he will have his way or pop. When he gets mad, don't ever argue with
him. just keep still and he'll cool down in a minute." This outburst es-
tablishes Harmon in the front rank of keen observers. A further example
of this was offered when he said of Mrs. Terrill: "lVlrs. Terrill is a lady."
Mr. Herman Ehrenberg was born in l860, in Leipsic, Germany. He received
a secondary school education, but the greater part of his knowledge was
gained in the German Army. He did a four-year bit for Kaiser William's Pa,
and then came to America. He says he's right glad he's where he is at the
present time. If he were not those eyes might squint even more from con-
tinually sighting along a barrel. The present war, according to Hamion, will
be decided in favor of the side possessing the most money. We thought upon
hearing this that we'd at last discovered an unprejudiced Teuton. But Noi
He went right on to say that Germany has the most money and resources of
any nation in the world, so we could just figure it out for ourselves.
If Harmon had lived back in the B. C.'s, Virgil would doubtless have con-
structed a simile around him: "Just as around the school yard, a thrifty Har-
mon." This same industry, coupled with good humor and never-failing willing-
ness to oblige, has made him a character, a personage, and a problem: for in-
stance, where does he keep that S20,000?
BELL rings somewhereg Mrs. Walling strikes a chord on the pianog at once
with a precision that might become a military school, everybody stands up.
Then Mr. Terrill utters a word of prayer, or leads us in the music of ai
resounding song, or gives one of his thoughtful and genuinely inspiring talks,
or invites some visitor to say a few wordsg and so the day's work begins. Very im-
portant is this chapel service, for it gives tone to the whole day, gives us incentive
not only for each twenty-four hours, but for the days and years to come.
It must-pardon us if we should seem for a moment to be almost jocose-be a
great inspiration indeed to the rest of the school to look at us, the cream one might
say of the Seniors and therefore of the school, who sit like magniiicoes of greatest
port upon the platform. There is President Emerson in the shade of the piano, the
dignified commanding Emerson, not the Casey of the ball fieldg there is Editor Jack
Beall, peering lion-like from behind the tangles of his hair: there is Gervais Strong.
stalwart and handsome, Beanie Dunlap, present representative of a family famous in
Terrill annals and himself no disgrace to the distinguished nameg Will Rutherford,
the gentleman from Tennesseeg Felix Parsons, a man of letters in more senses than
one, as this book bears witness, Rhea Roddy, saturnine and taciturn as becomes
one who always has his lessons prepared and is thoroughly aware that he has. But
the front row! Where else can such an aggregation of beauty, youth and wit be
found? There is j. Paxton, almost cross-eyed in the effort to keep his eyes from
roving over his left shoulder towards the Hockaday fence: there is the famous
"Wine," desperately attempting not to look conscious of those scented letters in his
breast pocket, there is J. Howard, scholar, athlete, sportsman, lover, etc., etc., show-
ing at intervals echoes of the famous Ardrey smiley there is J. C., trying to look
grown-up and as if he had nothing to do with short-trousered brother Paulg there is
Jack Bonner, closest competitor of Gervais in the beauty contest. The hope of tread-
ing in the footsteps of such as we must surely be an inspiration. There are others,
too, on the platform who are not Seniors, yet who in spite of this disadvantage, would
grace any assemblage-joe Becton, Chief Elliott, and the members of the orchestra,
fingering and bowing and blowing lustily. And over by the window with his famous
little black book is Mr. Phelps, taking note of the vacancies in the whole crowd and

Chapel exercises this year of grace 1915-16 have, we think, been particularly inter-
esting, but perhaps that is only because we shall not take part in them much longer
and so have a premonitory touch of home-sickness. The singing has had more vol-
ume, more "pep" than of old: the songs have had more snap and go. The speakers
have included such men of prominence as Professor Henderson of the State Univer-
sity, Dr. Folk of Tennessee, Dr. Henry Alford Porter, Mr. J. Howard Ardrey of New
York, Words from these men could not fail of significance, and Mr. Terrill's own
sayings to us this year have been remarkable. Talking much less than in former times,
he has this year put so much thought, so much deep and careful preparation into what
he has said that his words will often return to us when we hear other marching or-
ders than "Take your books" and go forth, we hope still cheerfully whistling, into
other and more deadly, if not really more important, battles than those of the school
room. G. A. F.

"That Winfrey" reminds one somehow of an attribute
of March. He came into our midst like a lion, roared at
"Tooner" Allen, and now after a couple of years of blow-
ing is going out quite lamblike. He's about the only boy
we know who, having started out to defy the whole works,
has lived to bull another day.
Within the short space of two years he has come to be
one of our leading sunshine disseminators, bestowing a
cheery smile here and a rank joke there. He is particu-
larly famous for his arguments with Paxton as to which
is the greater man, and his rendition of the "Rover Boys,"
a sample of which has been preserved for posterity in this
You have to cultivate Bill Allen for something like
three weeks before you can get a word out of him. But
once the spell is broken, he steps forth with many a good
one, all quiet and apologetic-like, but possessed of a
"punch," There's no attempt at slap-stick in his efforts,
only a keen appreciation of the humorous side of every-
thing and an ability to make others see it with him.
Around boys he's enough of a nut, but around girls he's
nothing short of a marron.
To describe "Bag" Volk necessitates going back and
reviving a nineteenth century favorite-"monkey shiner."
There is a certain animal humor in "Bag" which, aided
by external urgings, is ever spurring him on to greater
efforts. He lives for the laugh he can provoke, a form of
career which is pleasant enough for the rest of us but is
hardly fair to himself. We missed him the First part oi
the year when he was at 'Wentworth, and we came near
missing him the last part of the year, but that's another
story. If it were not for the spirituelle qualities of Mr.
Barrie's creation, "Bag" might in a way be compared to
Peter Pan. Like him, he will never grow up.
By far the most gifted vaudevillian in the school is
"Dag," whom we love and tolerate by turns. When he
brings out a new one that he hasn't "sprung in forty
year" he is indisputably good, but in his efforts to let
every boy in school share in the good thing, he oftentimes
repeats it upward of two hundred times. That's where the
toleration comes in. He is the proud father of the Horace
Clark-Joe Ardinger tribe-and is our most accomplished

When the time came to select a president of the Senior
Class, "Casey" was cnosen almost Dy acclamation. There
was a general feeling that he would grace the position with
his presence, beauty and dignity. He is known far and
wide as the possessor of the best trained pompadour in the
sch-ool, but in spite of this he's a real man.
When you know Harold you know the best part of the
"VV in him, daughter, win him."
There are so many reasons why Paxton is a great man
that we haven't the space to put them all down. He
possesses more football knowledge than any other student
in the school. His numerous medals show his prowess as a
scholar. He is an excellent debater and a good speaker.
He writes easily and intelligently with fearless criticism.
Combined with these a winning personality and a never-say-
die spirit and you have the chief reasons for Matthews'
One of the best known and certainly one of the best
liked boys in school is Sherwood Sabin. He has a mys-
terious L in front of the S. S., but we have never suc-
ceeded in discovering what it meant-probably Launcelot.
Sherwood is not big in inches, but he has proved himself
big in manhood. In 1914 he won the History medal. '1l11S
year he has made a distinct hit as sporting editor on the
school paper. M-ore than that, the class of 1917, recogniz-
ing his abilities, have made him editor-in-chief of their An-
nual. It should be a good one. G. A. F.
As an example of unemoticnal efhciency, J. Howard
Ardrey commands the respect of his enemies as well as of
his friends. He is a lesson-getting. football-playing, basket
ball-playing, baseball-playing machine-an ideal machine-
accurate, frictionless, utilizing every erg of energy expend-
ed. Time, place or person affect not Ardrey in the slight-
est: he plays his football and does his wooing with the
same serene assurance that he is equal to the task in hand.
There is much to be said about Bub. His prowess as
an athlete is known all over the State. He was picked as
all-Dallas and all-North Texas end. He is recognized as the
best basket ball center in Texas, not excluding college men.
He is a good track man, exceedingly fast f-or his size. He
holds down First base cn the baseball team and is one of
the best hitters on the team. He is easily the best athlete
in the school. While Bub is known chiefly for his athletic
prowess and his ever-present smile. He is also Food at other
things and has done some valuable work for this Annual as
the editor-in-chief will testify. S. S.
"Chief" is our battle-scarred veteran. When it comes
to brick-wall defense, projectile-like offense, and able lead-
ership, you have to reckon with Elliott, and ask anybody
whro has ever played basket ball against him if he suffers
from any fatty degeneration. Most people would prefer to
man-handle a contact mine than monkey with him in any
sort of a game. With all this he is a helpless enough per-
son when it comes to quoting Corollary II of Proposition
17. We would feel much the losers, however, if he were
less of a player and more of a student. Perhaps there
wouldn't be any sixth consecutive championship if such
were the case.

If Turner is especially good at any one thing, that thing
is Latin Prose. He should give Lee Brooks an awful tussle
for the hon-ors in that subject. At Christmas, he rated
second in grades. Since then there has been no indica-
tion of a falling off.
Lee has always been one of the best students in school
and up to this year was noted chiefly for this. But his
football work this year has won 1-im a new reputation in
another field. When he first reported for practice, he was
placed on the fourth team. It didn't take the coach long
to see what splendid material he had and Lee was soon on
the first team, where he remained all season. He is quiet
and has nothing much to say, but when he does speak.
something worth while always comes out. He is the kind

Blair has done practically the impossible. Usually
when a new fellow comes into the school, he has a lot of
trouble getting himself adjusted, but not so with Edwin.

J. HOWARD ARDREY.
Among Selachians. "jay" has no neer. His mind is so
admirably ordered, his memory so surprisingly tenacious, his
will to work so unusual that those less gifted and less pur-
posful waste a good deal of their own time in sitting back
and wondering at him, and saying to themselves, "Oh I
could do it too, if I studied as hard as he' does." To see
him bitting a problem that requires hours of time to work,
to see him settle down to work at one bell and not looking
up till the ringing of the next is truly to be lost in Admira-
tiion of his qualities as a worker, and as a student.
It is well that this young man comes in the unseeing
class that Burns refers to when he said,
"O wad some power the giftie gie us,
To see ourselves as ithers see us."
For truly, if this brainy, big-hearted little fellow could
see himself with others' eyes, his head would be much too
large for his hat. He can rightly be called the chemistry
star cf the class. We do not mean to say this is the only
thing he stars in, fon he is also at the top in all his other
subjects, but to be a star in chemistry is to be indeed a
planet. Some of his history mates will testify to his big-
heartedness, since he furnishes them with type-written his-
tory notes. J. BONNER.
Here's the greatest assembly of facts in the Terrill School
with the exception of the Encyclopedia Brittanica, Web-
ster's. and a few other similar works. He's been known
to miss but one question outside of the school room since
he has been here. Besides so much general knowledge,
John knows poetry and quotes yards of it when called upon.
His school work has of course been? of the highest type.

Although Mr. Bogarte has been with us for only a year,
he has won the hearts of all. There is not a boy to be
found who has any feeling of ill-will toward him. On the
contrary, he is one of the most popular members of the
faculty. His ownership of the school is but a natural out-
come, for Mr. Bogarte is a man who is bound to go to the
top. We all wish him a great success with the school next
year. J. T. G.
George Archer Ferguson is head of the English Depart-
ment, but he is also wonderfully equipped for instruction
in both Latin and Greek. This is Mr. Ferguson's second
year with us and there is not a better liked teacher in the
faculty. He has a ready wit and can "get back" at any
body with the greatest humor, especially in the first division
of .Fourth English. He is the faculty representative on
the News Staff, and it is due to his untiring efforts and
work that this paper has been as successful as it has. The
boys who have studied under Mr. Ferguson need not be
told what a privilege they are enjoying, and those who
have not had this privilege could not fully appreciate what
might be said in praise of him., so these few words could
not be summed up any better than by saying, "Here's I

this school who is not only respected but loved. No
one with a conscience "warts" Mr. Phelps, and no one
ever "jerks" him. He will not be your enemy, and he will
not play you as his favorite. He is the nearest approach
that ever was made to earthly justice. J. R. M.
Mr. Farrar teaches sciences in the school. He also has
Algebra and Latin classes. Mr. Farrar is one of the most
highly educated men in the school. He got his A. B. at
Bates, and his A. M. at Columbia. We know from ex-
perience that his knowledge of Physics is unlimitedg likewise
we know that his Chemistry, Algebra and Latin classes will
testify thel same thing. We also hear that he reads French,
German and Greek with equal ease. In fact, Mr. Farrar
can handle about everything that is taught i.n the school,
Cpenmanship exceptedb. S. S.
Mr. Davis is what one for the sake of brevity would call
a "great help." Among his accomplishments are basket
ball coaching, track coaching, Latin teaching, Greek teach-
ing, English teaching and all the other teachings. Also he
is one of the masters oi the Lodge of Muskokas, a refuge
in the Canadian wilds for the brain-fagged Terrill youth
from the temptations of the summer streets of Dallas. Mr.
Davis has turned out two ch mpionship basket ball teams
in succession and also is an excellent teacher and strange
to say Cconsidering the last mentioned factl is quite popular
among the boys. S. L. R.
Arthur B. Hammond' came to us for the First time this
year. His vocation was turning out a championship foot-
ball team and his avocation, as you might call it, was teach-
ing history and a few other subjects to the members of the
Lower Sch-ool. He was as equally successful as a teacher,
as he was as a coach and made a great host of friends
among those in and out of his classes. Hammond also
took a great interest in the Y. M. C. A. work among the
House Boys and was the faculty member of one of the di-
visions. J. H. A.

fg HE Hockaday-Terrill Schools are unique in that they are

Perhaps it would smooth out some upraised eye-brows to
,I explain one or more of the foregoing remarks. It is a fact of
which few people are aware that the Terrill School maintains
its own weather bureau. Else why this zealous westward watch-
Wi?-C' ing with a telescope of the declining sun each afternoon?
Doubtless it's to see whether it will be warm enough for tennis
again on the morrow. And then when the sun has gone down, the weather-prog-
nosticating astronomer may watch the transition of Venus. The chief observer is
well prepared for this since he has, as has been intimated, an old brass telescope
constantly within reach... A visit to his room over the gymnasium at observing time
is fully as interesting as a peek into the great reflector of the Lick Observatoryf,
The professor's favorite bulletin after a careful reading of the heavenly bodies is
"Fair, but colder." Such is the weather bureau service, which is popular in its way,
but not half so popular nor so well patronized as the regular noon-day postal service
which makes prompt deliveries of anything-from letters, which merely require
handing over, to hat boxes which have to be carried up and left on the porch with a
We carriers don't mind it so much, either. It gives us something to say besides
a plain "howdy-do" to the demoisselles as we pass them on our way to the boarding
house. To be able to say, "Here's one from Sawnie," or "Got 'air letters today ?"
helps out immensely as we jaunt by. Our only objection to acting as an auxiliary

ice cream carton or something more mbwglush fno, this isn't the linotype gone
wrongj proof than an envelope. We oftentimes feel that if we tip the envelope,
much the contents will slosh out.
Lately we've been simply flooded with the spring output of sweet nothings. One
would think to see the bulk of noon-day' missives that ours was a correspondenceq
school. No one seems to be immune. They all do it from Krakauer down. We
wouldn't be a bit surprised if at any moment "Ug" Higginbotham pranced up and
left a lilac-scented one for us to be sure and seel that she got it-very important.
Some one has not inaptly said that "To make the winter pass quickly, sign a.
note in the fall." As revised to suit Hockaday-Terrill Schools it might well read:
"To make the winter pass quickly, 'fall' and write notes." No less an authority than
Martin B. Winfrey has volunteered the information that not only do such doin's
shorten the winter but in his' case have indefinitely shortened his life. "The nervous
strain," he went on to say, "is simply terrific, simply terrific. 'Will I, or won't I get
an answer? is my only food for thought, which makes for a somewhat unbalanced
ration. In my case the 'won'ts' seem to have it. I haven't heard a word from her
in two days. That's what I call low." So saying he refilled his fountain pen.
We don't know about the nervous strain attendant to waiting for an answer,
but we would surmise that the composition of the average note doesn't greatly upset
the nerve ganglia.
We more or less violated a trust the other day. We were carrying a letter, an
unenveloped letter that lay open in 'our palm and seemed to beg to be read. That
was the start, and from then on we delegated ourself as the censor of all mail
going through our hands. When the epistlers read this they will under tand that

word "keen3" seven out 'of every nine letters mentioned the fact that the writers
were defying the great Terrill System just to write hisw little note. They darkly sug-
gested vague things about the terrible results if they were caught writing notes in

After reading hundreds of epistles, yours probably among them, we've been able
to standardize such letters. The average letter runs something like this:

I ought to be studying. Maybe there wouldn't be something doing if I got caught
at it! But you know "Pleasure before business!"

passed by and whistled? I guess you thought I was Paxton Matthews, so I'll forgive

When some Hockaday maiden gets substantially that in her next letter, she may
be sure she is being handed Form 41, her cue to send back the class pin and other
impedimenta and fervently thank us for showing him up. In that way we, too, may
be able to start up a little correspondence. And this much we'll say for ourselves,
we would never utilize the bell to close our letters to a lady. Instead, we'd say
something like-"well, there's the postman's whistle now, so I will close, yours in
haste." The fact is, we'd sacrifice even the truth itself for such originality. Honestly
we would like to keep on writing more of this, but we must stop as lack of space

A House Boys Day
Two things can be said about a house boy's day: "Life is just one blamed
thing after another," and "keep on the move." Both fit the circumstances
admirably well. For some, the day begins about 5 :30 or 6, when the extra
studious and diligent boys get up to study Trig. or something else almost as
wicked. But for the masses, the house boy's day usually begins when
"revieille" rings at seven o'clock. They lie in bed taking cat naps until the
prep bell rings at 7:20. At this time there is a mad scramble for clothes. At
7:30 Ellen rings the breakfast bell.
Immediately after breakfast, the school day begins and is only interrupted
at l2:l0 by the noon hour. Until 3 the house boy studies and recites the
same as the other students.
At 3:15 the first truck leaves for the field. House boys are required to
take a definite amount of exercise every afternoon. Those who do not go
to the athletic field for track orbaseball in the spring or football in the fall,
or report in the gym for basket ball in the winter have to play tennis. Those
who do go to the field are expected to catch the first truck, unless they have
unfortunately been detained by some tyrannical teacher. These unfortu-
nates must catch the second truck at 4, and so every one in the house takes
his physical exercise, whether he acquires any mental or not. lf, by chance,
it has been raining and the field and tennis courts are too wet, the boys report
for a nice short little walk of about an hour under the supervision of one of
the instructors. This walk is, of course, welcomed by all.
Returning from the field about six o'clock, a house boy barely has time to
wash his sins away and dress in time for his "beans and Jones." After supper
at 6:15, the boys report in the chapel of the schoolhouse at 7i00. for a short
session of I5 minutes, during which time they read and study the' Bible, have
talk from Mr. or Mrs. Terrill, or have an interesting and instructive book read
them. Study hall starts at 7:l5 and lets out at 9:30, so each boy gets 2 hours
and I5 minutes each night for good, hard study. At IO o'clock a bell rings
for extinguishing all lights, and after such a day, the house boy's day usually
closes about l0:05 p. m.

It was suggested that this issue of
the "News" have a write-up of a

pose there should be a write-up of the
organizing of the Faculty team, so here
All the teachers were assembled for
purposes of organization, when some-
body with a voice of mellitiuity in-
quired, "Mr. Terrill, who's going to be
"I am, Mr. Bassett, I am," replied
Mr. Terrill. "I am furnishing the balls
and bats and I started off the sub-
scription for uniforms by giving one-
fifth of the sum outright. I'd like to
see anybody but me be Captain."
"Well, who's going to be Manager?"
piped the shrill treble of Mr. Ramsden.
"I thought that had been settled long
ago, sir. As long as Harmon isn't in
this game, I can manage anybody here.
I'll be both Captain and Manager."
"Who's going to be catcher?" asked
Mr. Ferguson. "Well, now, I hate to
boast, but I'm generally acknowledged
by every one to be the best catcher in
the business. I've been catching folks
for 30 years now. They never run
wild on the bases with me around,
"And pray tell who is to be the pre-
mier batsman?" politely inquired Mr,
"Now, here, I've always been that on
the boy's team, I guess I got a claim,"
broke in Mr. Adkisson before Mr. Ter-
rill could reply.
"Mr, Adkisson, I'm running this,"
rejoined Mr. Terrill, "You stick to
your fiddling and I'll tend to this."
And then with an all-encompassing,
gracious smile he turned to Mr. Farrar
and Mr. Phelps and said, "I'll let you
gentlemen keep the gate for me if
ycu'll promise to let me count all the
money. You men will have to be

The Rover Boys on
the Treasure Hunt
By MARTIN B. WINFREY
1Dedicated to Bill Allenj
There were by this time on the
boat only the three boys and the lit-
tle baby Cwho, by the way was about
three months old and had been found
clinging to a plank out in mid-ocean.
by the Rover Boys, Dick, Tom, and
Samj, who now were in Sight of the
place, where, according to the charts,
the treasure was.
"Let's anchor her here, and row to
the island, boys," ejaculated Dick
"IES 3 go, Dick Rover," joined in
the two brothers. "We'1l leave the
baby in bed, Dick Rover," exclaimed
So they all three got into the row-
boat and made for the shore. BY this
time they were fairly flying and the
shore was shortly made. Here they
searched all day long and all night and
met the next morning HS Planned on
the top of a mountain next to shore.
"What luck, Sam Rover?" iotflfd
"Not much, Dick Rover, we didn't
gee anything that looked like a treas-
ure," remarked Sam Rover.
"The nearest we saw to a treasure
was a monkey's left hind foot," wittily
chirped Tom, who always had his fun.
This of course caused a hearty laugh
on the part of the boys.
"You couldn't be serious if YOU
had to, Tom Rover," chuckled Sam.
"Oh I don't have to, boys," scream-
The boys were now holding their
sides and laughing at Tom's expense.
"But we must be away," said Dick,
who was rather inclined to be serious.
"You're on!" goofled Sam, with little
regard for grammar.

Q mums EQ
Ringing Out the Old, Ringing in the New
I have been asked by the Editor-in-Chief for a "statement" relative to the putting
aside by Mrs. Terrill and myself of our labors in the Terrill School.
For two years we have realized that our responsibilities and duties were fast
draining our energies and weakening our strength, and that the time must soon come
when others must take up the work. That Messrs. M. B. Bogarte and R. H. Bogarte
should be the gentlemen to go forward with the plans and interests of the Terrill
School ought to be a matter of great satisfaction to all of the old pupils and patrons
whose thoughts are those of good will and prosperity for the institution. For them,
there is everything to be said that can be said of cultured, scholarly, experienced
teachers, possessing attractive, vigorous personalities that will solve problems and
overcome difficulties. Men of Southern sympathies, with a wide range of knowledge
of the management of our best preparatory schools, and intimately acquainted with
the ideals and policies of our own little school, we can but feel that they deserve and
should have at once the full confidence of our people.
Aside from the many friends and patrons who have blessed us continually with
their praise of our ei-'forts and their deeds of helpfulness-to whom we would here
acknowledge our great debt of gratitude-there are yet two other human agencies
whose sympathetic co-operation have been of inestimable worth to us in our moments
of severest struggle, and these are our pupils and the teachers associated with us.
Hundreds of "our" boys have stood strong and steadfast for the- high ideals of the
school, and in their own lives of righteous conduct and persistent toiling at their
lessons have grown in breadth of mind and depth of soul as they have added unto
their years. And all the while they have been a joy unspeakable to us whose con-
stant helpers they have ever been. There is also that large number of boys, who,
loving life but not restraint nor books nor yet "preaching," having known something
of the regular, systematic call of hard duty in the school, have gone out into the
world to hear a sterner call and a truer "preacher," and, having become advocates of
those self-same ideals aforetime rejected in school, have said in their hearts, "Ah,
it was good for us to be there."
And to our fellow teachers, what can we say other than with us you have been
most loyal and diligent and true. All our plans and hopes must have gone amiss but
that we could ever depend upon you, with a sympathetic mind, to interpret and
carry out our every thought and wish.
, MENTER BRADLEY TERRILL.
To conceive a great idea, to watch and nurture that idea through ten long years,
to sacrifice one's very life-blood for its fruition, and finally, when that idea has fully
blossomed into a big, powerful reality, to step aside with the assurance that its
very inertia will carry it on and on-surely this is success.
It represents the life work of the two who are retiring from the active manage-
ment of the Terrill School at the close of the present school year. The extent of
their success in piloting hundreds of boys through the most critical time of their
entire lives is too real a thing to the many, many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Terrill
throughout the entire Southwest to need any comment by me.
The future of the Terrill School is assured. The days when it took on any of
the aspects of an educational experiment are long since passed. The bigness of
the idea behind it has been demonstrated over and over againg and the success of its
unique methods is silently but potently testified to by the lives of its many success-
ful and loyal graduates.
A little more than a year ago, The Terrill School meant nothing to me. Today
it means everything. In one short year-the happiest and most pleasant in all of my
teaching experience-I have learned to profoundly admire its wonderful efiiciency
and to love the manly, sincere boys who make up its student body.
To assume the management of such an enterprise is no light task, no small re-
sponsibility to undertakeg but with an ever-watching care, and a sincere love for
the work there can be no other result than a continued success.
May the Terrill School ever remain the Terrill School. May its founder ever
remain as proud of it as he is now, and may its "old boys" always be glad to come
back to its shelter and feel the same pride in their old prep school as they have felt
in the past. To this end I propose to devote my entire energy, my heart, and my

"T he Lodge of the M uslzoleas "
HE Terrill Camp, composed of Messrs. H. O. Hirt, Hal Noelke, Joe Becton,
Felix Goldman, William Philp, jordan Ownsby, J. Howard Ardrey, jr., Bill
Allen, and Alex Ardrey, left Dallas july 1, 1915, on the H. 8: T. C. for Hous-
ton. Here we changed for New Orleans, where we arrived the next morning.
We stayed here one day, visiting the French and Spanish quarters, numerous ceme-
teries, and the famous Rathskellar restaurant. On Saturday, July 3, we took the
S. S. "Creole" for New York. Everybody had his hair shaved off and reached New
York looking like a convict. Here we met Mr. Davis and stayed two days, seeing
the Statue of Liberty, the aquarium, the Public Library, Art and Natural History
Museums, Grand Central Terminal, and Grant's Tomb. One night was spent at the
Liberty Theater, where we saw "The Birth of a Nation," and one at Coney Island.
Saturday, july 10, we took the Hudson River boat, "Washington Irving," and went
up the Hudson to Albany. From Albany we went by rail to Niagara, spending Sun-
day seeing the falls, and then to Toronto, where we met Sawnie Robertson and
Wilson Higginbotham. Leaving Toronto Monday morning, we reached camp Mon-
The camp is situated at the foot of Skeleton Bay on Lake Rosseau, the largest
of the Muskoka Lakes. Great granite cliffs rise to the height of several hundredf
feet on either side of the Lodge, affording perfect shelter from storms. The Lodge
contains six rooms, including a study hall. Here a short chapel is held every morn-
ing. Two wharfs extend for about one hundred feet out into the bay. A farm
house furnishes good country eating and plenty of it. Paths lead through the woods
to inviting smaller lakes which teem with bass, pickerel and perch. A string of
fifteen fish, none weighing less than a pound, caught in an hour by two boys, was no
uncommon occurrence. Trips were made to the towns of Rosseau and Windermere,
and a two days' trip to High Lake, about live miles distant. On this last trip the boys
spent their First night in the open and hardly one of us slept. "Pig" and Alex
turned over in their canoe in the middle of the lake'a little after dark and had to
dry their clothes by a fire before going to bed. From the tales Mr. Hirt told of
the fish caught here the previous year, there must have been a lot of fishing done
during the winter, for only two were caught all the time w ere there. Our es-
teemed cook, Mr. Davis, burnt the beans but said they tasted ood to him, and ate
them all. After a month of this camp life, a man named Slinger slung us across!
. QIHIBL ,Egg
a couple of lakes in his launch and we caught the train for Moose Lake. We stayed
here about a week and Noelke and "Hig" got a deer apiece. "Pig" and Bill got lost
hunting theirs and stayed out all night. Leaving Mr. Hirt and Mr. Davis with Gold-
man, Philp and Ownsby, we departed with A. J. Clements, known to all as "Clee,"
and Hughie Lee, the cook, for a two weeks' canoe trip through the rivers and lakes
north of Parry Sound.
We left Moose Lake early one rainy morning and paddled up Still River to
Noganosh Lake, where we stayed all night. Then up Noganosh River to Smoky
Lake, where Noelke got a big buck swimming in the lake, across Smoky Lake and
up Smoky River to Pickerel River. We went up Pickerel River to the inland town
of Loring, where we spent the night. Then we paddled down the Pickerel, stopping
wherever we felt like it to eat, fish, swim, or make camp, till we reached the Canadian
Pacific Railroad, where we caught the train for camp. Everyone who went agreed
that the canoe trip was the best part of the camp. 1
Only a few days were spent at the Lodge getting ready for the return trip. This
was made through Toronto, where we left "Pig" and "Higgieg" Buffalo, where we
left Mr. Hirtg and St. Louis. We reached Dallas about August 29th. Here's hoping
you who go this year have as good a time as we did. A. H. A.

' Q-E' 'EGIHIEF' E43
Lord god of tests be with us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
E. now rejoice in a new system. Whereas we previously sweated for a
daily grade and got by on a seventy, we now loaf more or less for
about eight days and then cram for a bi-weekly exam, in which we are
expected to make eighty. , It is a better system in that it is fairer to
the average student, but it is decidedly unfair for the boy who is above the
average. He may know his lessons much better than the average student for
eight recitations, and yet, thanks to intensive cramming and the fact that all
points can not be covered in a forty-minute exam, on the ninth day the a. b.
can and usually does make as good a grade as the better, steadier student.
This doesn't tend to encourage the latter in his digging thoroughness. As far
as grades go and that's nearly the limit, it looks pretty useless to study hard
when others apparently get along as well with a minimum of work. But far
be it from us, along with two hundred others, to carp against a system that
makes for our betterment even to the detriment of Turner Garner, Howard
Ardrey, Edwin Blair and some two or three others.
We will say this, however, without fear of successful contradiction, that
if we had studied last year as we have studied this year, the front board
couldn't have held the weekly "D's."

HE medals given in the Terrill School
are awarded to the student having
the highest yearly average in the
subject for which the medal is given.
In the various years of the existence of the
school the number of medals given has
varied. The number has grown from six
in 1907 to thirteen in 1915. In addition to
the thirteen medals awarded last year there
were also prizes offered for the best "all
around" boy in each form. Owing to the
fact that a boy in the Low Under Form
won the Lower School Medal, and a boy in
the Fourth Form won the General Scholar-
ship medal, there were no prizes given for
scholarship in these two forms. The prizes
for the High Under and Middle Form were
medals in the form of pins and the prizes
for First, Second and Third Forms were
sets of books. On the following page is a
list of the winners of the different medals
during the nine years' existence of the

Not wishing to boast as much as to state a plain fact, we have come around to
remarking, if you haven't already remarked it yourselves, that this book contains some
exceptionally fine art work--this from a very humble beginning. At the start we
didn't know of any one in the school except Ed Moore, who could draw much of any-
thing besides his breath. At the end we are "full up" with iirst water artists, the lack
of any one of whom would be a distinct loss to the book. Among those who have
contributed to the artistic side of the book, are two young ladies who have taken great
interest in the school and the school's Annual. They have given unstintingly of their
time and effort and their splendid successes are indeed oases in the desert of mediocrity
and faulty technique, common to the average prep school Annual.
We wish to express to Miss Alma Martin our genuine appreciation of her work.
There was a standard of excellence in her work that never varied. Her full page
"Faculty" and "Terrill Days" pictures are magnificent. Besides these she has drawn
many headings of the same calibre, such as "Banquets," "Monstrosities," "Sharks"
We were very fortunate to be able to secure such a finished artist as Miss Gordon
Conway, of New York, to draw the title cover of the Athletic Book. It's one of the
best things we've seen in any Annual.
All hats should be doffed to Messrs. Conrad and Moore for their exhibition of
College talent in prep school work. Conrad does the most beautiful lettering and
designing of any one in the school. His full page "Forms" and "Organizations" have
established his reputation for formal drawing, while his Senior's Day cartoon has
marked him as being no slouch of a cartoonist. Our regular cartoonist has been Ed
Moore. The pieces that that boy has turned out are nothing short of epochal. He
specialized in the Faculty cartoons and the headings for many and varied subjects.
His full page drawing for Advertisements is one of the most originally conceived and
executed pieces of work that has come under our notice. He unfailingly caught the
spirit of his subject and dashed off on the Bristol pictures with! "punch" and "life."
In his humorous treatment, he usually reminded one of "Punch" and "Life."
Felix Parsons and Billy Barry were given quantities of lettering to do and they
came through in great style. Although it is not very conspicuous work of itself, it
would very likely have been quite conspicuous if it were done with less care than
has characterized their work throughout. Bill Rutherford's decorative heading,
"Athletics," needs no comment from us. It speaks for itself. We wish to thank all
others who have contributed art work. We wish them to feel that nothing they did was
in vain as far as the Annual was concerned. Every bit helped. THE EDITOR.
' anna? -Q
HIS might well be the longest write-up in the Annual. Every one has
helped as never before. The photographs in this volume are the result
of the work of some half dozen earnest cup-seekers. The lVlcCauleys,
Reinhardt, DeCourse Allen, Burgher, Witwer and Noelke, along with
a few others, have made a splendid record in the taking of live, interesting
There are many boys not' on the staff who have whole-heartedly assisted
in divers matters involving tedious work, in particular Newman, Krakauer,
Sabin, Randolph Allen and Reinhardt.
We are also much indebted to Messrs. Bogarte and Ferguson, one for
his excellent advice and help along photographic lines and the other for an
immense amount of routine work, such as reading and correcting manuscripts,
reading proof and offering invaluable friendly criticisms.
The Iohnston Printing and Advertising Co. has been one of the largest
contributors towards the book's success. It gave the best it had.
For our cuts we are indebted to the jahn and Ollier Engraving Co., of
Browne 6: Browne did splendid work on formal individual photographs.
Arnold 6: Kemp turned out their usual high-grade work in the Form
F. C. Rogers, who made the flashlight of the school, deserves great credit
for his picture.
Those that have written for the Annual are so numerous that it would
be almost impossible to give a complete list of them. We are, ofcourse,
deeply grateful to them.
Lastly, we wish to thank our subscribers, advertisers, and well-wishers for
the kindness and generosity that have made possible this book.

A COPPER MINE.
The daughter of a Chicago policeman sat
on the porch of a Palm Beach hotel---having
arrived at money-and heard several ladies
telling how their husbands and fathers had
come into wealth. One got his in steel, an-
other in dry goods, a third in baking powder,
and so on.
"What did your father make his money
in?" they asked the policeman's daughter.
"Copper," she replied.
"Say, Pa, what were those quills they used
to write with?"
"Things they took from the pinions of one
goose to spread the opinions of another," re-
plied Pa, as he refilled his fountain pen.
She: "l am very tired. l wish that l
could find a big rock to sit on."
He: "l woulcln't mind being a little bold-
er, if l weren't afraid of being sat on."

UQ EQIHISF' Q
OTHING in particular is known about the lower school by the upper
classmen, and only a very few statements concerning these boys
are able to be made with any show of truth. The Middle Formers
of course are all looking forward with the greatest pleasure to the
time when they will be in the,'Upper School. The High Under Form has
the best marble player in the school and this boy's brother has already been
chewing tobacco for seven years. The Low Under'Form speaks for itself
and asks more questions than the other six forms combined. Lee Slaughter
is wondering when he will get out of the Low Under Form and "Pee Wee"
Caraway is wondering when he will stop growing. These boys will soon
be heard from though, and we would not be surprised if there was a poet
in the bunch. '
