After months of toil and labor, the "biggest and best" Annual is
at last completed and is humbly presented for your inspection. We do
not intend to particularly emphasize the time Which we have spent
in its completion, for We have found pleasure in every step of the do-
ing, but We merely take this opportunity to announce that our
hearts have been filled With the spirit of honest endeavor to make
this Annual an Annual among Annuals-a book which Would be Wor-
thy in every respect of the class of 1921 from Which' it springs. We
have attempted to fill this book with such things that would be of
particular interest to the members of this Class in years to come,
things which Wouldprove pleasant reminders of the years spent With-
in the Walls of old T. H. S. If we have in any measure reached the
mark at which We have so sincerely aimed, We are content.
We Wish to thank the members of the School, and particularly
the people who have given such generous support, which they have
all so graciously given us. We sincerely trust that the class of 1922
vvill judiciously avoid all misunderstandings and complications in the
next year's activity by co-operating with the merchants and friends
from the first. -
It is with a feeling of sorrow that We realize that this is the last
activity Which We Will be directly engaged as students of T. H. S. Her
interests have been our most vital interests for the past year, and We
have nothing but a most sincere desire in our hearts for her future
Welfare and success. "School Spirit" is a trite phrase but it expres-
ses something Which is never experienced by more than half a dozen
loyal students each year. The majority of the population of our
School are even ignorant of the true meaning of this phrase. It is
easily defined. School Spirit is that particular brand of enthusiasm
Which gives one the unselfish feeling of "do or die" for his School.
When, by some means, the majority of the student body is inocculated
with the School Spirit Germ, and not until that time, will T. H. S. ex-
perience unlimited success. The Class of 1921 is gone, what it could,
it did, its best, no more. It rests With the classes of the future to
produce the system of introducing the true School Spirit into "the
best old H. S. that ever existedf'

In the dear old High School building
Where my old desk used to be,
Other pupils will be sitting,
And I know they'll think of me,
For the Wood's all over inkspots
And there's scratches on the glaze,
And my gum is Where I left it
In my last old High School days.
Oh those dear old High School days,
And their cut up pranks and plays
I can never quite forget them, as I
Tread life's busy Way,
And the eyes of memory gaze,
As my spirit backward strays
And my heart leaps high With longing
For those dear old High School days

It Was in the fall of 1917, that the first group of the present
Senior Class was admitted to the T. H. S. as Freshmen. There Were
five of us, Gwyrneth Morton, Blanche Dahlstrom, Faye Bittinger,
Zola Jack and Cecil Dansdill.
The great joy of this occasion Was not marred by any thoughts
of a future failure, the horizon of our school life at this time Was
bright and rosy. It did not occur to us until later that We Would
have to Work, and Work hard, no, We had heard of bluffing, cram-
ming, and pursuading, and it had affected us deeply. Consequently
some of us were almost forced to drop by the roadside.
The Friday after We had settled down to become a part of the
ornamentation of the school, figuratively speaking, We obtained our
first inkling of the nature and purpose of an assembly. We had now
set forth upon the Wild seas of romance, teachers, lessons, and such
other small trifles. It did not Worry us about making grades g in fact
some of us almost flunked before We realized that study had a place
in our school curriculum.
The Various periods possessed many terrors, real or imaginary,

at the beginning. When the first teacher of the day announced
"Period 1" we were entirely bewildered. However, after a few stren-
uous week we were thoroughly initiated into the peculiarities of
the school system.
In September, 1918, we re-entered school with a new lease on life,
After all the preliminaries were over, the Sophomore class started
with a determined effort to surpass all records of previous tenth
grade pupils. There were now six strong, robust students in the class.
In oratorical and declamatory work, debating and athletics the Sopho-
more class took an important part, and worked hard to make our High
School stand high in the estimation of other schools. Our efforts
were not altogether in vain, for in many of the contests T. H. S. came
out with flying colors. The real zest of our school life had not yet en-
tered into our hearts 5 that was to come later g but we worked hard to
achieve distinction as a class in the records of the school. This we
succeeded in doing. No Sophomore class in the past came anywhere
near equaling the standard of our work. The Seniors of '21 can
point with just pride, in future years, to the fact that they were once
members of the greatest Sophomore class that ever graced the halls
of old T. H.
Late in May, the Class of '18 was graduated, and we were con-
verted to Juniorism. Gan any of us ever forget the joyous thought
with which we prided ourselves on the fact that we were Juniors?
At last we were factors in the advancement of school spirit and
school life at Thornburg High. It would seem that the memory of
that occasion will never fade from our minds. Some of our members
excelled in athletics, literary work, and others were chosen to assist
in the Senior play.
At last came graduation, the annual event in which the Juniors
and Seniors were the main participants. The good feeling between
the classes was manifested in the reception by the Juniors to the
Seniors in May, 1920. This reception was acknowledged by all pres-
ent to be a great success. Let us hope that the friendship existing
between the Classes of '20 and '21 will continue through life.
When we entered school in the fall of '20, we were at last Seniors!
The class organized and elected Cecil Dansdill, President, Faye Bit-
tinger, Vice President, Helen Musgrove, Secretary, Elsie Moore,
"Nothing But the Truth" was selected as the class play.
As the story goes, organization insures strength. It seems that
we realized this fact early and decided to decorate the interior of the
school building with our colors, which happen to be yellow and white.
mm.. 1321 .ni mu um
Just after sunset one evening, we assembled up town and at the sig-
nal, given by a light in Superintendent Bailey's office, mysterious to
some, we cautiously moved in the direction of the building. A shrill
whistle from Cecil Dansdill caused us to be noticed and admitted
Soon the gold and white was strung from pillar to post, from desk to
desk, from light to light, until a network of these beautiful colors
fairly filled the assembly hall. Naturally enough, following such
strenuous exercise everyone sat down only of course, to rest. After
a few words had passed from one to the other, faint but certain
sounds proved that the enemy had arrived with the determination
to destroy the wonderful decorative skills of the evening. Closer and
closer they came until there could be no mistake. They had come.
Think of how vicious they must have been to follow peaceful Seniors
into their rendezvous and even harbor the thought of molesting any
constructive work accomplished by us. However, the fact that Jun-
iors were Juniors was soon impressed upon the mind of every Senior,
for, certain definite knockings could be easily detected from outside.
Although few in number, we were up and going. We fastened
all the windows which were not locked, stationed people at each door
for fear the enemy had obtained keys from some sympathizer, and
guarded every possible vent through which the most treacherous
highwayman might creep. At last the enemy, who had strengthen-
ed their forces, seemed to fairly pour from every direction ,through
windows, doors and corners. Shrieks rang out for help but by the
time aid reached us, paper, bunting and pins lay in distress on the
floor, trampled and stained by the wicked trod of the invading
Juniors. Although apparently beaten we were not whipped for with-
in us was instilled the spirit to excell not only in our own class af-
fairs but also in all the activities of the school.
The Class Annual, a record of our four years' hard work, is one
of the finest. The editor-in-chief and the staff have done their level
best and we sincerely hope that the work will be appreciated. As we
are few in number, it will be impossible for us to leave anything of a
material nature as a reminder of the class of '21 but we, as our one
prayer, wish to know that Thornburg High School will continue to de-
velop as it has in the past.
' We wish to say, one and all, that although we have had some hard
times .in Thornburg High School we have enjoyed all four years of
our High School life, and have been greatly benefitted by them, and,
"Our hearts with fondness swell,
As we bid fond farewell ,

CLASS PROPHECY I
It is my hobby to sit before an imaginary hearth, dressed in robe
and slippers, in fact, there is built within my room a hearth in which
there is an electric glow. My grandson installed this to meet my
whims, for an old woman cannot easily become accustomed to the
progress of science. As a girl, to curl up in an easy chair before a
hearthfire, was a great pleasure, there was companionship in the
glare. Nor does the automatic chemical heat of this day of progress
warm my rheumatic joints as a fire would. The good old days of
fires and furnace fires are gone. Aside from the old prints and al-
most ancient photographs, one no longer sees a comforting chimney
from the top of houses. This room, built and equipped along the lines
of olden days, is somewhat of a curiosity, I presume, to everyone,
but none enjoy it more than my little granddaughter, Zola J ack,
Third, and here she sits, at my knee, listing to the garrulous tales I
tell her about when I was a girl.
Tonight, she dragged from my treasured books, the High School
volumes concerning the classes of 1920 and 1921. Both of them are
frayed, thumb marked and dimmed with age. In the volume of 1921
appears a prophecy which I wrote of the future of the students of that
class and this she discovered. I was showing it to her and also the
pictures of the Junior class of 1920.
"Did they grow up as you said they would?" asked the girl.
I laughed. "They did not. As a prophet, as in many other things
in life, I was a dismal failure. The ones I said would be ministers, be-
came lawyers, the lawyers, undertakers, the undertakers, mission-
aries, and the missionaries, bankers. As a prophet I was far from
being a success."
She opened the 1921 volume again and looked intently at the
Senior pictures. y
"It was a pretty swell looking bunch of boys and girls, wasn't it,
"The swellest that was ever graduated from the Thornburg High
School," I answered, with pardonable pride.
"Who is that angel-faced boy, grandma?" she asked.
"That boy," I answered, "was far from being an angel. His name
was Cecil Dansdill. He was the class witf' Then pointing to the oth-
ers on the picture, I added: "These six, with Cecil, were the bane of
existence for every teacher that was ever in that school. In some fash-
ion they all finished the course, but in getting their diplomas, they

must have mesmerized the faculty.
"Still," said the girl, "they were nice looking folks. How long
ago was that taken, grandma?"
"Sixty-four years ago," I answered.
"What became of each of them?"
"Grandma is pretty old to remember such things, but if you will
be real quiet, I shall try to tell you exactly the conditions as I found
"I came upon a little wizened-up old woman unexpectedly and
through her I found out what each person in the class of 1921 was do-
She was bending over a bubbling cauldron and her withered fea-
tures were crossed by an expression of joy as she caught sight of me.
An uncanny laugh escaped the dry lips, while her long, bony hands
kept stirring that foaming substance.
Fascinated I drew nearer and threw myself down beside her
with my eyes fixed intently on her face.
"Can you look into the past and the future?" I inquired.
"Yes, I see everything and can tell you all you wish to know,', she
"Tellme then," I cried, "what my classmates have done in the
years since we graduated."
She looked at me and smiled a rather wierd sort of smile.
"Watch the ' cauldron?
Then my gaze was rivited upon the cauldron, for out of that
seething mass of the witch's concoction came the visions of my class-
mates of the past. '
As each appeared, when the old hag called them, they gave a
What I have portrayed and told to you was revealed to me as I
Watched the familiar forms appear and heard their old voices.
"Cecil Dansdill!" The harsh voice seemed pleased.
The mist parted and the face of our popular president appeared.
He was the same except that he seemed older and more experienced.
"Since leaving school I have been constantly working on a trans-
lation of Caeser. It is at the present time being published. I hope
it will prove beneficial. The Board of Control, of the State Univers-
ity of Iowa, promises that, if the work is a success, they will make me
head of the Latin Department."
How time does change us, I thought. . .
llllllllil' lllllllllll lllllllllllllllllll
"Gwyrneth Morton I"
"Since our marriage, Ralph Reike and I have been working in
the Salvation Army. We aid the poor and helpless and our efforts to
do good are tireless. A winning smile crossed her face and I real-
ized that their work was rightly named "Salvation"
"Faye Bittingerf' The witch's voice expressed trouble.
"I held the position of "Trouble Department" in the High School
for several years. This is a position that I seem well able to fill. Af-
ter my dismissal from the "Trouble Department,, I played the leading
role in my most popular play, "Wanted: A Man I" which was written
for me by Francis Harris. It is a clever little play, and as it was made
for me, was just what I wanted. I am now on my way to Reno to ob-
tain my third divorce. I have had a hard time to gain happiness, but
hope I will be happier in the future." ,
Helen wore her usual smile. "Because of my extreme interest in
Physics, I began the day after graduation to work on the Physics
problems assigned by Mr. Bailey in High School and I just finished
them five years ago. After that courageous accomplishment I began
to run a boarding house. This was such a success that people in San
Francisco learned of my work and offered me the honorable position
of chamber maid in one of their hotels. After I had saved a consider-
able sum of money, I returned to Thornburg to enter into a life part-
nership with Draegert Co. of the Blue Front Grocery."
"I went abroad to finish my musical education. Since my debut
in concert work I have made two successful tours in America, and one
abroad. I first excelled as a pianist and then became known as a vo-
calist. Now I am star reporter of the What Cheer Patriot."
"I have been living in the deserts of Arabia. I have written
three novels dealing with the people and their customs. I am now en-
gaged tothe Queen of 'Love-land' Whose family is old and historical
in and about Thornburg. If nothing happens I shall take a trip down
through Jerusalem, Palistine, etc., and then return immediately to
preach, as a result of my new inspirations." .
"Zola Jack." y y .
"Henrietta and I are teachers of dancing in Thornburg. I teach
aesthetic and Henrietta teaches folk dancing. We are doing re-
markably well and hope soon to enter vaudeville as dancing partners."

JUNIOR HISTORY OF CLASS oF 1922
Here we are the Class of '22. We are really and truly Juniors.
When one has lived a life strong and useful, with pure heart, true mo-
tives, high aspirations, heroic deeds, we feel like saying to all the
world, "here is a man." So when we pause to view a class as it comes
this near the end of its course, to look back over years of work, of
pleasure and pain intermingled, of battles fought and won, of 'de-
feats bravely bourne, we feel like saying, "here is a power for good
that cannot be estimated by human calculations."
Freshman Year-"When we knew not, and knew that we knew
As Freshmen, we struggled valiently together. Although not
strong in numbers, we held our ground marvelously against the at-
tacks of the other classes and many of bold successful onslaught
have we headed. We believe that we were one of the strongest Fresh-
man Classes that ever entered T. H. S.
Sophomore Year-"When we knew not and knew not that we
As Sophomores, although perhaps not so warlike in demon-
stration, we nevertheless inspired awe among the other classes. It
was as Sophomores that we began to feel how important we were and
how necessary we were to the school and how sad the teachers would
be when we were gone. We looked down from our lofty pedestal of
wisdom with an eye of pity on all who were not far enough advanced
to be enrolled in our famous class. For truly, it would be a sad fate
to graduate from T. H. S. in any other class than the class of '22,
Junior Year--When we know but know not that we know."
As Juniors, we have conducted ourselves with becoming forti-
tude. We have attained a dignity that is worthy of our high position.
Tall and stately we marched through the halls with an air of having
met and conquered the foe. This year, indeed has been our greatest.
The Juniors were well represented in the Declamatory Contest, and
also very well represented in Basketball. We not only had the cap-
tain of the boys' team, Cecil Johnston, but also had Keith Moorhead
and Jesse Baker. Claude Moore was also a member of the orchestra.
It is not yet possible to prophesy what will take place when we
step over the border of Juniordom and become full-fledged Seniors,
but we believe our prospects are encouraging. '

JUNIOR CLASS SONG
fTune-Hiawatha's Melody of Love.J
And the song we sing is Juniors on forever more
Always at the fore
No matter what the call ' .
And we'll always fight to maintain the honor of our school
We will all fight for you
Just as strong and as true.
And in after years when memories recall
The days we spent in your hall
Among our comrades one and all
We'll rejoice and sing
Just this old Junior song
That we had in dear old T. H. S.
Here is a line to our colors,
Dear old "Pink and Bluev,
They stand for justice and liberty,
And to our colors we are true.
They're the emblem of the class of '22,
Of dear old T. H. S.
And they'll always recall those old school days
Full of joy and happiness.
When they float before us
In these old High School days,
They remind us of our duties
In a thousand different ways,
They remind us of our studies,
And of friends we love to make,
They remind us of the teachers
And of Cuts we dared to take.
When our High School days are over,
And we go out for our lifetime tasks,
Do you think we will forget our dear old colors,
And Profs. there in the past?
No, we'll look at our colors with gladness,
And wear them with success,
To express joy, gratitude,
And best wishes for T. H. S.

One more step toward our great goal-Graduation. One more
year we have labored that we may someday call ourselves Seniors.
This year we have made progress in several lines.
"The wisest man may be wiser today than he was yesterday and
wiser tomorrow than he is today."
We have spent two profitable years at High School, but the fu-
ture means much more to us.
We entered as a class, with Willard Warnock, Carter Goodman,
Everett Sparrow, Edith Walsh, Hazel Fisher, Henrietta Nanke, and
Freela Hicklin. A short time later Alma Voigt and Lawrence
Young joined us. This year Claude N anke, Fred Nanke and Donald
McLaughlin came to help boost our numbers.
We boast of having some literary geniuses as well as some fa-
mous in athletics and music. Everett Sparrow is noted for his abil-
ity at playing Right Guard in Basketball. Claude Nanke is one of
the Baseball squad and Donald McLaughlin plays his Saxaphone in
the High School orchestra. Henrietta Nanke and Edith Walsh both
hold important positions on the Girls' Basketball Team. We also fur-
gisliged six out of eight in our class who were members of the Glee
And now we must bid farewell to the Seniors who for four years
have worked for Thornburg High, but the memory of this class of 121
and its achievements will always be an incentive for harder work and
the Sophomores now solemnly promise the Seniors to do all in their
powizrsfor the school that we both love and to ever be true to our old
SOPHOMORE CLASS POEM
Our motto, "Never backwards,"
ls to us a Golden Rule.
By striving always the best to do,
We've advanced thus far in school.
As Freshmen we humbly started
The long ascent to climb
And steadily plodding upward,
Gained Sophomore life sublime.
And now the heights we have attained
Our labors do reward,
Our minds have worked both long and hard,
With knowledge to be stored.
We are proud that we have been able
To bring glory to our school,
And our work, we hope, will prove to you,
The excellence of our rule.
May the glory of our colors,
Royal Purple and White,
Be stepping stones to victories
When the future comes in sight.

FRESHMAN HISTORY. CLASS OF, '24
Freshmen-that, in high school terms, means beginners, and we,
the Freshmen, believe that we are successful ones.
During our last semester in the grades, the thoughts kept run-
ning through our little brains :"What would High School be like?"
"What would we do?"
At first it seemed like nothing but jumping from one teacher
who was hard to find, to another still harder, at the signal. Never-
theless nearly all of our number discovered the fact that study does
not comprise all of school life but that the organizations should have
their share of attention. As far as study goes, however, we have
learned one great lesson: that is to be careful of whom we ask any-
thing, and what we ask, for fear of being somewhat embarrassed by
Our class is well represented in school activities, and young as
we are in High School, we would seem a very important part of
T. H. S. We have a representative, Searle Ridenour, in Baseball,
three girls, Lucile Samuels, Ellen Walsh and Helen Johnston, in
Girlis Basketball, and also eight of our twelve in Glee Club.
You now have the proof before you and was there ever a class
like '24? The Seniors will say, "Well begun is half done," and we
surely have tried to begin well. As we look back over our Freshman
year and see its great accomplishments, we realize that to have at-
tained them we must have had an ideal. '4What was this ideal?" we ask
and we see the answer clearly-the Seniors, the class of '21. A good
ideal they have been, too. They have labored well for old T. H. and
we are trying to follow their example. As fellow workers, we wish
them every success in life and hope that they may finish as well as
they have begun. And as their hearts beat, our's beat in unison, we
will ever be loyal to the Orange and Black.

"""""' 6 AAm W'--T
On Monday of the seventh week of school we had our first call
to report for basketball. At our first practice wefound thattthere
were fourteen men out to try for the team. Each man tried hard to
earn a place, but as our first game was only about three weeks dis-
tant, we had to weed out and choose our team quickly. We started
out with Keith Moorehead and Cecil Johnston as Forwards, Cecil
Dansdill as Center, and Jesse Baker and Everette Sparrow as
Guards. Raymond Phillips played as Sub-Forward and Leroy Mus-
grove as Sub-Guard.
Our first game was scheduled with Gibson to be played there.
None knows why but Jesse Baker didn't appear on the scene of the
battle and Leroy Musgrove played guard. Only a little time passed
when "Ching" came running off the Cwhat shall I say, floor?l court
with a bloody nose. Phillips, although not a guard, took the guard
position and the game resulted in victory with a score of 34 to 13.
The following week Gibson came to Thornburg to try her Basket-
ball skill again. We succeeded in driving her to the wall again and
came out with a score of 40 to 22. 1 ' V
Then we hit the Irish. Parnell came to town with the assurance
that they could have nothing but victory. They happened to make
a mistake, for although they stormed in like a bunch of cyclones, they
left like lambs.
Then came a time soon when the boys must play Guernsey. They
too came with the feeling that they possessed a team that could not
be beaten, but when the whistle blew the score showed that we beat
them 51 to 3. That was enough for anyone, wasn't it? Then came the
time to return the game at Guernsey. Will any of the boys ever for-
get the trip or the happenings of the whole night? They simply mud-
ded it through a steady downpour from Thornburg to Guernsey. As
the conditions were not satisfactory in any respect, the boys refused
to play after the first half. Remember the drunken crowd that
swarmed around Mr. Bailey and how his mouth seemed to be sealed
shut. In spite of the whole affair the boys came out of the first half
with a score five points in the lead. After the game the cars com-
menced to chug toward Thornburg. By that time, of course, the
roads were almost impassable and the mercury had fallen until the
rain came down almost in icicles. By the time the boys reached Deep
River everyone was not only drenched but half frozen. Remember
what was done there?
.Next we tackled South English at South English and much to
their surprise whipped them. The score of the first game was 26 to
16. The next week they visited us fully expecting to carry home the
victory. As it happened they did not but do you remember how
breathless you were while the scorekeepers figured up the points?
The final score was 16 to 15 in favor of Thornburg.
Our next game turned the tide against us. We went to Parnell
with Keith's hand broken. Although he played hard with his one
hand in the first half, Parnell had gained a small lead which the boys
Were unable to overbalance during the second half. We hated to lose
this game but when we consider that it was the eighth played and the
and the first lost, it is'nt so bad. Too, if we could have seen fit to
play the men as they were played in the second half, it would not
have ended as it did. s
Riverside came to us as our next victim and we succeeded in gain-
ing two more victories.
Wellman played us here and we beat them 38-21. But when we
returned the game, we found altogether different conditions from
what we were used to and this one resulted in a loss 14 to 28.
Our neighbors to the east could not see fit, for some reason to
keep their contract with us, therefore, Webster forfeited the two
games to us.
The last game of the season was played at Keswick. The boys
were not playing up to time and found themselves outdone 16 to 24.
When the points are figured up for the whole season, we find
that our boys have almost twice as many points as their opponents.
They have all done well and deserve much praise and encouragement.
As a token of Mr. Bailey's appreciation of the boys' hard work,
he arranged for the boys to enter the tournament at Iowa City which
was held March 17th, 18th and 19th. Regardless of the experience
which the boys must have had in Basketball, they could not help but
have enjoyed being associated with the university activities even
in such a remote manner.
CECIL JOHNSTON Since the last record in the 1920 Orange
"Jonnie" and Black, "Jennie" seems to have grown
R. Forward, Capt. somewhat, for he surely makes some of
the opposing guards step aside for him
this year. He had the misfortune of car-
rying a neck full of boils at the time when
he was most needed, but we succeeded in
postponing some games until he and oth-
ers were in better shape.
KEITH MOOREHEAD Keith is a good consistent player who al-
Keith lows none to confuse him even if he is
L. Forward much larger. Keith suffered a broken
hand in the midst of our season, but it
soon became strong again and he resum-
ed his old post as forward. Everyone
counts on Keith but we wonder if he gets
the praise he deserves.
CECIL DANSDILL Cecil is a hard man to beat on the Basket-l
"Cec"-"Dan" ball floor. He is fast, consistent, and a
Center wonderful offensive player. As Cecil is a
Senior the team will lose him this year. It
is the deepest regret that we have to
give "Cec" up.
EVERETTE SPARROW "Banty" came to us this year a bit slow
"Banty,' but by the time he entered his first game
R. Guard everyone pronounced him a real player.
He has been one of the most consistent
players on the team. He is heavy, clever,
and fast which is a hard combination to
beat for a guard.
JESSE BAKER "Jack" is a good defensive player but my
"Jack" how he hates to stay back! Although, in
L. Guard Jack's position it is almost impossible to
get down far enough to make baskets, he
is one of the most valuable men on the
team for when they start through his de-
fense they usually turn and try another
method. They don't "go through" him.
LEROY MUSGROVE Here is a fellow who is in keeping with
"Ching" the saying that "all good things are done
Guard up in small packages," for although he is
not large he has proven his worth as a
guard. All of the fellows hate to see
"Ching" leave, but as he, too, is a Senior,
we can only bid him fond farewell and
wish him the best of success.
RAYMOND PHILLIPS "Phil" has not had a chance to play in
"Phil" many games but he is a good little for-
Forward ward and will probably play on the reg-
ular team another year.

' T GIRLS' BASKETBALL
This year's team had to be made almost from newmaterial be-
cause five members of the team were out this year. Edith Walsh
played some but as she was notwell we could not depend on her at all.
Then we lost through graduation Helen Bruce, "Pegg" Orr, and
Helen McCracken. Alma Voigt, too, was outbecauseof an appendi-
citfs operation which she had performed early in September. That
left us Henrietta Nanke and Ellen Walsh. It happened that the gods
of fate were kind to us and sent Curtelia Ridpath from Keswick as
one of the swiftest forwards that Thornburg has had for a long
time. ' S in .
Other things which entered in to handicap the girls was the fact
that they were called upon to use three different coaches during their
season. As it happened, in spite of all of their handicaps, they beat
half of their games, which was not half bad, we think. y
HENRIETTA NANKE Could she hit the ball on a jump? You
"Henry" should see it go clear down to the ' for-
Capt. Guard. wards. She is tall and strong, and has
arms that simply don't allow a ball to
start for the basket! "Henry" still has
another year on the team and if she im-
proves as she certainly shall none of
them can stop her. Henry should be play-
ing forward but because of the scarcity
of material "Henry" plays anywhere.
HELEN MUSGROVE This is Helen's first year at Basketball
"Todie" but she can be proud of the place filled as
guard. Some of the girls didn't like Hel-
en's elbow but she helped to keep the op-
ponents' score down with it. She is fast,
strong and clever.
CURTELIA RIDPATH "Cortie" is one of the best, if not the best,
"Cortie" player on the team. She is tall, strong,
Forward and quick as lightning. If "Cortie,' ever
touches the ball the guard might as well
sit down and wait for the ball to come
through the hoop.
llIIllIlllIllll llIllIlllIlllII i
Ellen plays a mighty good game and, al-
though she is little it takes a mighty good
one to go around her. As she is a Fresh-
man We expect great things of her before
she finishes old T. H. S.
Look out for Mildred. "Pd surely hate
to have her hit me," seemed to be the say-
inglvvhenever she took the flo-ory Mildred
is fast and strong and none of them fool
her for a minute. Remember what she
did to one of the South Englishers after
the game ?
Gvvyrneth plays a place on the I team
Which is an important one yet We are 'apt
not to give her the credit which is justly
due her because the side center is not in
as great prominence as some of the other
Helen is a good guard and with a little
more practice should prove to be one of
Thornburg's best. She hits 'em hard and
especially When she's angry. A
Svvifter than double geared lightning.
She can't be beaten for a guard. Edith
suffered a misfortune of being sick at
the Wrong time and therefore A did not
play much this year.

The boys do not have time enough to devote to Baseball to really
get as much out of it as they do from Basketball but nevertheless they
play the game Well. It is the desire and hope of the boys that they
may develop a Baseball team that will make a record equally as good
as that made in Basketball.

The Music Department has held a very important place in High
School activities this year. Early in the year it seemed' that music
would be a dismal failure because none could be secured to lead the
orchestra. However, after several months of searching, a man here
at home, Mr. George Pendleton, condescended to help us out of the
predicament and with only a very few experienced players brought
order out of chaos and developed an orchestra of which any school
might well boast. ,
These young people were called upon to play on several occasions
aside from school entertainments for which they were always expect-
ed to be ready. Their appearances met with the most favorable crit-
icism. It is the hope of the people who composed this year's orchestra
that each year added interest will be shown in music and that it may
grow in favor as time rolls by. E
For the first- time Thornburg can boast of an organized glee
club. There was not ,sufficient time which might be given to
divide boys and' girls into two separate' glee clubs. Therefore, music
for mixed voices was obtained and these people, twenty-five in all
worked to make Thornburg's first Glee Club a success. They sang at
Parent-Teachers' meeting and other times appeared at public gather-
ings. These people made the start and it is up to the classes which
follow to keep the good work going and to enlarge upon it.

A Scout's Dream.
'Twas a nice October morning, last
September in July,
The moon lay thick upon the
ground, the mud shone in the sky,
The flowers were singing sweetly,
the birds were in full bloom,
While I went down to the cellar to
sweep an upstairs room.
The time was Tuesday morning, on
Wednesday just at night,
I saw a thousand miles away, a
house just out of sight.
The walls projected backwards, the
front was in the back,
It stood between two more, and it
was whitewashed black.

APOLOGY AND LOGIC
Allayne M. Burt.
Perhaps a little joke on you
Will ever make you sour,
But one upon the other men
You'll laugh at by the hour.
So if within these pages you
One 'bout yourself should see
Forget you ever were la grouch
And laugh quite merrily,
For those who laugh keep fat and we- V t,
But those who frown do notg
They suffer day and night all time,
Theirs" is a much worse lot.
So if a joke you find, just laugh
E'en though it is your owng
Remember those who frown at all
Are those who frown alone!

If you stop and think, you will find that
the people Who have given ads for the High
School Annual, are the ones Who are boost-
ing our school. We cannot exist Without as-
sistance of every kind. We ask you, as fel-
low Workers for the good of Thornburg, to
read these ads carefully to see if you are
not able to patronize these people instead of
some who "Could not take an ad."

The Ford car can well be called the "peoples car," because there'
are more than 3,000,000 of them in daily operation. That is about
four to one to the nearest follower in the motor car industry. This
would not be so if the Ford car had not for sixteen years proven its
superiority in service, in durability, and in the low cost for operation
and maintenance, this would not be so if the Ford car was not so
easy to understand, so simple in construction that anybody and every-
body can safely drive it. It is everybody's necessity because it
doubles the value of time, and is the quick, convenient, comfortable,
and economical method of transportation. We solicit your order.
We have the full line, Touring Car, Runabout, Coupe, Sedan,Truck.
ge assure you the best possible in repair work with the genuine Ford
