To mirror faithfully the life of V. H. S.-its
work and its play-is our aim in presenting this
edition of the VERHIAN. To those now in our
school, may it prove in days to come a happy re-
minder of their high school days.' Recognition is
also given to the lumber industry and the forest won-
derland in and near Vernonia.

HAT in America is more fascinating, more wonderful, more valu-
able than her forests? Each year our forests are hosts to thousands
of visitors from all walks of life in search of that which cannot be
found elsewhere. Hunters and fishermen take advantage of the recreation
and pleasure afforded by the pursuit of wild game and fish, which abound
in the forest and streams. Nature lovers, with an eye toward the beauty

Our forests are valuable not only for their beauty. To them we go for
the logs which are taken to the sawmills and made into lumber, which in turn
is used to make beautiful and necessary articles, factories, business houses,
beautiful homes and magnificent edifices.
We of the Nehalem Valley are indeed fortunate in being so bountifully
supplied by nature. We have a vast area of virgin fir timber, which will sup-
ply our major industries, logging and lumbering, for years to come.

Fellow seniors of class twenty-seven,
Tho' We shrink from the final test,
We believe that We all shall graduate,
For we've studied and done our best.
When with pride we've received our diplomas,
We must next decide what to do.
Shall we enter Normal, or College,
Or with studies shall we be through?
Tonight as I sit in the gloaming
My thoughts persistently dwell
On our high school course nearly ended,
On classmates and teachers as well.
I wonder if these years have helped us
To give better service for pay,
Than do others without education
Who have practiced the work everyday.
I believe education will help anyone
The commonest tasks to do well,
If he views them as tests of his worth
And endeavors in them to excel.
Thus with ideals high, and loyal hearts,
Let us hasten to our life work,
Resolved that no matter how hard it may be,
Our duty we never shall shirk. .
Tho' we leave we shall not be forgotten-
How impossible that would bel
Since no other class was, or will be, composed
Of persons just like you and me.
We leave to the Juniors our Senior room,
All enveloped in scholarly air,
With self-reliance, independence and culture
Such as we enjoyed while there.
Lastly, our habit, when unprepared for class,
All suspicions of our teachers to allay,
By simulating wisdom with a knowing smile
That gets you by, but never does pay.
Our professors and teachers we gratefully thank
For their patience with us through the years.
We bid them adieu with sincere regrets,
While our smiles are mingled with tears.

Senior Class History
On September ll, 1923, the class of '27 entered Vernonia High School
with a vague idea of what it all mea.nt. We did not realize that We Were
only Freshmen and that We should keep our places. The Sophomores invited
us to a "party," they called it, but after we had been to the "party" we
decided to conduct ourselves as Freshmen should. We further concluded
that we had much to learn and would have to work hard, consequently we
have had many honor pupils throughout the four years.
When we became Sophomores, we took great pride in superintending the
Freshmen. We took active part in the activities of the school and accom-
When one becomes a Junior he realizes what school means to him. He
has reached the point of high standing in the school, and does everything for
the betterment of the school. We were a good junior class. We all wanted
to do something to help our school. We realized that the junior class should
set an example for the under classmen. We were represented in all branches
of athletics, in the band, in the student body offices and in all student body
activities. We put on a prom that surpassed all previous proms. X-Ve had
reached the point where we could help make a name for our school.
As Seniors, we have accomplished a great deal. We had more men on
the athletic teams this year than any other class in the school. Five of our
members hold student body offices. We all rank highly in our grades and
have some honor students. As we look back to the first day of school, when
we were green and foolish, we feel that our time has been well spent and
that we have attained a winning spirit which will accompany us through life.

THE CRYSTAL GAZER
HAD given up my position as commercial teacher in high school to take
that of private secretary to Nir. Homer, the famous playwright and
author, because of the wonderful opportunity which it offered for
travel. While we were in Calcutta I became interested in Madam Zucca,
whose wonderful prophesies were attracting attention, not only in India, but
throughout the Eastern world. At my first opportunity I paid her a visit.
The subdued voice and reverent manner of the servant who admitted me
made me feel as if I were approaching the Delphic Syble, or, at least, standing
on holy ground. I followed him along a winding hall till he stopped before
a heavy door which opened to admit me to a heavily-curtained, dimly-lighted,
mystery-pervaded room. Before a small table upon which rested a crystal sat
Madam Zucca. Opposite her stood two elaborate oriental chairs, to one
of which she motioned me.
When I had seated myself, she began, "Oh, I see a connection!"
"What is it ?" I asked.
"You are strongly drawn toward that one place near here. Now I see,
they are partners. I see them at the wharvesg they are-oh, I almost had it.
I have it. They are your former classmates, Wilburn Charlesworth and
"I see a girl, she is not far, she is in Europe somewhere. I see her near
the footlightsg she is a lecturer, her name is-Wayne Wall.
"Someone far away. Yes, across the ocean. There are hills--oh, I see
a wreck! There is a hospital. Someone is hurt. And, yes, a nurse is
anxiously watching at the bedside. She wears on her third finger a diamond.
Ah! she is engaged to the man, they are Theresa Tackett and Glen Haw-
kins. Theresa is an R. N. and she has been called to her fiancee, who has
been hurt in a wreck near the mine where he is chief engineer.
H 'fWhat is this large building I see? The sign says, 'Lincolnshire High
Schoolf The students gaze in awe'at the austere man who approaches them.
Why, it is your old friend, Russell Mills. He is the superintendent of this
large high school, and the little lady who walks beside him is Annie Laurie
Laird, his private secretary. The head of the mathematics department is
Mr. lylills' old-time friend, Dudley Spencer.
"A faint odor seems wafted to me on the breeze. VVhat can it be? I
see someone bent over an apparatus on a laboratory table. Offensive odors are
evidently issuing from it, for all the other workers have their heads out the
windows. Ah! it is Lewis Laramoreg he is head chemist in a large labora-
tory in New York. He is preparing some mixture for hard surfacing roads.
'Bill' Hill, who is a road supervisor, is waiting anxiously to prove the merits
of the new preparation. 'Bill's, wife, the former Loretta Johnson, has given
up her position as English teacher to assist 'Bill' in keeping his accounts
"I see a small town, it is V-E-R-N-O-N-I-A. You are familiar with this
town, and there is someone there whom you know. A young woman is
receiving her mail at the postoffice. She has a letter, the address on it is

Oregon. The lady with whom she is conversing is Mrs. Shella Williams
Bateman. She is assisting her husband as postmaster in the Vernonia office.
The letter which Miss Shipley has received is from Miss Ruth Holaday, who
is a high school teacher in Hawaii.
Uhladam, your friends seem to be a very intellectual group, but my crystal
will tell me no more today. If you will call again I can tell you more some
I walked from the room in a daze. Could it be possible that this woman
had told me the truth about all of my old friends, for indeed they were my
friends, since they were members of the graduating class of 1927. ,
The next day I went down to the wharves with the faint hope of seeing
either Wilburn or Norman. Sure enough, I saw them both. They were
much surprised to see me. They said that a few months before they had seen
Kenneth Whitsell and his wife, Gladys Krinick Whitsell. Gladys was at
last realizing her dream of traveling. Kenneth, who was a skilled physician,
had been spending his vacation in Europe and the Orient. While in Paris
they had chanced to meet Amy Hughes and Wayne Hall. Amy was still
studying music, and Wayne was making a wonderfully successful lecture tour.
Her success, it was said, was largely due to a well modulated voice and strong
It was several days before I had leisure to visit Madam Zucca again, but
when I did I found her as before, sitting before her crystal in the mysterious
room. As soon as I was seated she began:
"Madam went to see her friends, I saw her in my crystal talking to them
on the Wharves. Madam learned of other friends, too.
"In my crystal I see the same small town, and near it a large farm. The
owner of the farm is Percy Bergerson. His wife, Louise Schmidlin Ber-
gerson, teaches the district school near their home.
"Ah, Madam, the beautiful country! I see sunshine, orange blossomsg it
is your State of California. There is a large store in a prospering town
and on the sign over the door are the words 'Skaggs' Safeway Groceryf Can
Madam think of any connection between herself and this ?"
I thought for a moment, then I remembered the words of Harry Hixon:
"I'm not going on to school. I'm going to work for Skaggs, and maybe I'll
be transferred to California." Evidently he had reached his highest ambition.
"Ah! Music, magic, mirth, dancers swaying to the haunting melodies of
a wonderful orchestra. Conspicuous among the members of the orchestra
is Norman Engen, a banjoist of great renown. I see him playing here, there,
and all over the country.
"So different is the picture which I now see. I see-I see--chickens, hun-
dreds of them. It must be what you Americans call a chicken ranch. The
owner is very carefully gathering the eggs. The name is Richard Peterson.
"Such a mixture that I cannot tell. It looks as though the equilibrium of
the world had been disturbed. Now it begins to take shapeg it is an enor-
mous crowd which seems to be very much excited. Why, it is a theater and
the people are applauding someone, a young man who seems to have achieved
success. He is a blonde, and beside him is a smaller, darker man. The small
man is the author of the play, 'The Beloved Sinnerf It is Lewis Louden,
and the blonde, the leading man in the play, is John Wardle.
"Gorgeousl Wonderful! Such creations I have never seen before. Styles,
Madam, tailored and dress. It is a style show, and the little dark woman

who has charge of it is Lillian Lilly, who is in the employ of Marshall Malm-

All was quiet for a few minutes, then Madam Zucca spoke softly:
"Madam is going to see some of her friends during her travels. She is much
impressed by what she has been told, but Madam Zucca's crystal does not
show what is not true. You shall soon, see. Good-day, Madam."

We dare be dumb for a' that!
For a' that, an' a' that,
Our hate of lessons, an, ay thatg
The goal for which we all aim

What tho' on hard lessons we dig,

Please, Mr. Austin, may I ask,
How to finish this Algebra task?
I find it is quite hardtodayg
Indeed, so hard I cannot say,
just what to do with "X" and "Y",
No matter, sir, how much I try.
It appears to me that "X" is "Z",
Yet why it is I cannot seeg
For "Y" is somehow in the Way,
And "AU and "B" plus "C" delay
My efforts to complete the work,
Which, seemingly, I wish to shirk.

Junior Class History
One beautiful day in the fall of 1924, thirty-three timid Freshmen
appeared at the doors of the Vernonia High School. We were not timid long,
however, for the "Sophs" were soon very busy with us. After the initiation
We were given a party, and in return We gave a party. During the year, six
new members joined the class and one dropped out.
Our honor students were: Anna Aamodt, Helen Hieber, Ward Gooding,
Dale lWcDaniels, Veldon Parker and Ralph Peck.
Our class advisor was Mr. Wilkerson.
In 1925 we became the "Sophs" of V. H. S. 'Ours was now the task of
showing the "Frosh" what to do and what not to do. This year we had two
honor students. They were Anna Aamodt and Ralph Peck. '
Our class advisor was Miss Mirabel Goodin.
And now in 1926-27 we are the Juniorsgwith Mr. T. P. Graham as our
class advisor. The fact that we are a wide-awake, progressive class is proved
by the fact that we are represented in nearly every school activity. Our bas-
ketball girls are Ida Mae Hawkins, Louise Simmons and Helen Hieber. Four
members of the Girls' Glee Club are Juniors-Helen Hieber, Eva Roles,
Louise Simmons and Ida Mae Hawkins. Our Junior boys contributed no
small amount of the excellent work which gave V. H. S. its enviable reputa-
tion in athletics this year. Those on the teams were Morris Bennett, Harold
Olsen, Donald Hodges and Clarence Wardle.
Our honor students are Anna Aamodt and Ralph Peck. They have been
honor students since 1924.
February 24 our class put ,on "Sally Lunn," the first Junior play given
in the history of our school, and on May 13 we gave an unexcelled Junior
prom. The success of these events has proved the ability of the Juniors to
accomplish any feat which they undertake, even to that of ably and honor-
ably fulfilling the behests of the most noble Seniors who have ever gone forth
from our high school. .

Sophomore Class History
ln 1925, fifty-five pupils called Freshmen entered V. H. S. About two
weeks after our entrance, a group of babies was seen sitting in the seats of
the Freshmen. This was initiation Week, which ended in a party given by the
ln 1926 we became Sophomores and initiated the Freshman class. At the
close of the week we gave a party, at which some upper Classmen took
our ice cream, but thanks to Mr. Wilkerson who bought us some more, We
sent the Freshmen home happy.
Our officers for this year are: Robert Whitsell, presidentg Goldie
Garner, vice-president and reporterg and Russell Peck, secretary and treas-
Our class has several honor students-Ellen Ek, Emily Poetter, Ethel
Tousley and Frances Lappe. These pupils and Thelma Spencer, Betty Cul-
ver and Russell Peck were honor students as Freshmen.
For the benefit of the annual we gave a play, entitled 'lSunshine," which
was a great success. F. L.

Freshman Class History
At the beginning of school year, '26-'27, forty-six Freshmen entered V. H. S.
Three have entered since then.
Soon a class meeting was called, Kathryn Hoffman acting as chairman. At this
meeting the following class officers were elected: Kathryn Hoffman, president, Merle
Mills, vice-president, Beulah Parker, secretary, and Carl Berg, treasurer. In a later
meeting we elected Neal Bush, editor. Miss Goodin is our class advisor,
The Sophomores began initiation by making us feel and look as uncomfortable as
possible. They finished it by inviting us to attend a party given in the High School
building on September 24-th. A delicious lunch, consisting of punch, sandwiches,
cake and ice cream, was served. We enjoyed the cream especially. Ask some of the
juniors and Seniors why.
On March 11, 1927, the Freshman class entertained the assembly with a program,
which was very successful.
The Freshmen may be green, but our class has the following honor pupils: Kathryn
Hoffman, Violet Phelps, Alberta DeRock, Marjorie Kelly and Phoebe Greenman.
We like High School, and are eagerly looking forward to the time when we will

To be an honor student is an honor indeed. It means that a student
has earned an average of at least ninety per cent in all subjects carried by
him or her during the school year.
The honor students of Union High, Vernonia, although not many in
number, have established an excellent record. Scholarship letters were recently
presented to the following by the principal, lllr. Wilkerson:

HE lone figure sitting on the rocks was motionless under the stars.
Indeed, he himself might have been carved from the same rock, so still
and motionless he sat. But what a tumult was raging within! Only a
year ago Ben had been fighting desperately for his life and the lives of his
comrades over there in "No Man's Land." Fighting for his life! How
grateful he would be now if he could be free from it all and could pass quietly
out of exfstence. Oh, the bitterness and mockery of it!
Ben had one pal, one bosom friend, Whose companionship had been his one
bright spot in life "over there." "Buddy," he called him. Buddy had a wife
and a little son Waiting for him back home, and he had often spoken of them
to Ben. It had been his greatest desire that his son become a musician. His
Whole ambition had been centered in that one idea.
One evening Ben and his surviving comrades, weary and heartsore, re-
turned from a bloody battle. Buddy was not with them. Buddy had never
returned. It was a hard blow for Ben. For days he went about his duties
in a daze. The only thing he had to live for now was his mother, and just
a few days before he started for America he received news of his mother's
death. This last shock was almost too much for him to bear, but he decided
to drown his sorrow in useful occupation. Accordingly, he went from place
to place looking for Work, but always the answer Was, UNO, no Work today."
So he wandered about in a vain effort to forget.
As he looked over the barren expanse of prairie stretched out before him
tonight, he could not help comparing it to his own barren life which lay
before him. Into his mind intruded the well-known quotation:
"Alone, alone, all, all alone,
Alone on a wide, wide sea."
"Mother gone, Buddy gone, everything gonef' These words repeated
themselves over and over again in his mind, and he thought sadly of all they
meant. Yes, Ben was bitter, bitter with himself and bitter with life.
As he mused a sound broke the stillness of the night and roused him from
his reverie-a strange muffled sound. He listened, it came again-the sound
of a child's choking sob. Ben started. Surely he must be mistaken! Was
he not alone on the prairie with no inhabitants for miles around? Ah! yes,
it must have been a fancy. But, no, he heard it again, and this time he saw
a child stumbling along the trail toward him. The boy looked up and saw
him, and in the moonlight Ben saw his face brighten. He hastened up to
Ben as fast as his tired legs would permit.
"Oh, mister, I'm so glad I found you! I Wish you would please come
quick. Mamma went to sleep and I can't wake her up."
All the boy's fears seemed to have vanished, but he looked worried as he
explained to Ben that his mother had fallen ill and that he had been unable to
get her up from her bed. She had fallen asleep that morning, he said, and
he had been unable to awaken her.

Ben's mouth set in a grim line as he sensed the tragedy which had come
into the child's young life. He took the weary boy into his arms and, fol-
lowing his directions, soon reached a weather-beaten shack.
The next morning a solitary mound appeared beside the little shack. The
sunlight seemed to linger on it as a benediction. There were no neighbors
for miles around, so Ben was forced to undertake the task of caring for the
child and the few things left in the poor little home. The boy was sleeping
soundly while Ben busied himself examining the scanty possessions. There
was not much. How the little lad and his mother existed was a puzzle to
When the child awoke the stranger got part of his story.
"What is your name, my boy ?" asked Ben kindly.
"Sonny," was the prompt response.
"Sonny? Sonny what ?"
'fWhy, just Sonny," replied the boy.
Ben wished to speak of other things, so he did not press his point. Little
by little he learned what he wanted to know. Sonny and his mother lived
there all alone. No neighbors came to them and they went to the distant town
only to get their groceries.
"Daddy," explained Sonny readily, f'Daddy went away a long time ago.
He went across the ocean and he never came back again. Mamma said we'd
see him again some day, thoughf' After a little pause he said wistfullv, "I
wish I could see him soon." A
Then, looking up in the stranger's face, he said suddenly, "Say, isn't
mamma ever coming back again? Say, isn't she?"
Ben shook his head slowly, not knowing what to say. "No, Sonny, she's
gone to see Daddy."
Then, after a moment, "Can we go, too ?"
"Some day, Sonny, some day we'll go, too!"
Ben wondered why he was so attracted to the boy. He reminded him
of someone. Who was it? The brown eyes crinkled up at the corners when
he smiled-he had seen them before. Ben had decided to adopt the boy if
he could make satisfactory arrangements, so they set to work packing the few
things they wished to take with them. Already Ben was beginning to take a
new interest in life. The bitterness and loneliness of the previous night had, in
a measure, disappeared. Unconsciously the bitter Words returned to him-
"lVIother gone, Buddy gone, everything gone," but this time he did not smile
sadly, but added-"except Sonny!"
"Mamma gave this to me and told me to keep it,', announced Sonny,
holding up a paper. f'She wrote it before she fell asleepf'
Ben looked at the inscription, "For Sonny, to be opened on his fifteenth
"Yes, Sonny, said Ben, "you must always keep that. Now, is there any-
thing else you Want ?"
"I want this most of all, Mr. Ben. Can I take it? Mamma likes to
hear me play," and he held up a violin, scratched and worn.
Ben's eyes opened wide. "Oh! do you play ?" he said. "Let's hear some-

"How Buddy would have loved this boy. He is musical without doubt,"
thought Men. Thereupon he decided to name the adopted boy Robert, after
his beloved Buddy.
Obediently, the boy picked up the instrument and played a sweet, plaintive
melody. "Mamma liked thatf' he said wistfullyg "I played itbefore she went
Ben was delighted. Why, the child was a genius! He must take lessons,
such talent must not go undeveloped. Sonny would make a name for him-
self in the world.
"All alone?" Ben could laugh at that now. Ah, no, he was not all
as exe se .
The concert hall was filled with an audience impatiently awaiting the
rising of the curtain. Ben Daugherty was one of the most impatient, for in
his hand he held a program on which the name of Robert Daugherty appeared
as the debutant. Finally a slender, pale, brown-eyed youth bowed before
them, placed the violin against his chin, and drew the bow across the strings.
Every one sat tense and breathless as the wonderful strains of music floated
out through the great auditorium-he was the violinist of the day.
A few hours afterward when Ben sat comfortably established in an easy
chair, in their little apartment, he said, "Sonny, you remember the little note
your mother gave you? This is your fifteenth birthday. Are you going to
read it ?"
Robert went to his room and returned with the note. He and Ben read
"Dear little Sonny:
"When you read this you will fully understand the fears that are over-
whelming me. Sonny, I must leave you. Soon I shall be gone. What will
become of you, Sonny? My mind conjures up fantastic visions of what may
befall you, and yet, alwaysiin the background of these imaginings is the con-
viction that all will be well with you.
"I do not. believe you even know your own name--you have never
seemed interested in knowing it. Your name is Robert Pennison. Your
father's name was Robert and I named you after him.
"When your father went to war we came out on this little farm. I man-
aged very well at first, but the work and the grief of your father's death
have proved too much for me.
"I am getting weaker now, Sonny. Take care of your violin, always. It
was your father's wish that you become a musician.
"Your Loving Mother."
Robert looked up at Ben, but Ben was staring into space. "Robert Pen-
nison, Robert Pennisonl" he muttered. "Why did I not realize it before?"
Then the tension broke and the tears rolled down his cheeks.
"Buddy," he whispered brokenly, "Buddy, you didn't die after all. You're
still living in your son. And your wish has come true, Buddy, Sonny is a

ANET had a wonderful voice. With her blouse open at the neck, reveal-
ing the slender whiteness of her throat, she sent the golden notes tumb-
ling out so melodiously that they could not help thrilling the heart of
Janet was associated with a very gay, pleasure-seeking set at college. She
led the singing whenever the girls gathered for a good time. She did not go to
church and did not intend to. Life in college did not include religion for
her. Her social life was interfering with her college work, but this did not
seem to trouble her. In answer to her requests for money, grave, serious let-
ters from home came back. Janet would be serious for a day or two after
reading themg then the mood vanished, and she was gayer and more irre-
sponsible than ever.
She lived in one of the most fashionable sorority houses, and one evening
as she was preparing to go out one of the girls announced:
"Someone in the parlor wishes to speak to you, Miss White."
Janet was putting on her sweater.
f'I'll be down in a minutef' she replied.
Her sweater on, she tripped down the stairs, gayly humming a popular
song, and hastily opened the parlor door. Standing on the rug before the
fireplace was a tall, thin man with tired, kindly eyes.
"Oh!" thought Janet. "It's the pastor of the Christian Church."
Janet knew him, for he had delivered an address in the assembly once.
Janet Went forward. 'Tm glad to see you, sir," she said. "Can I do
anything for you ?"
The minister remained silent for a few minutes, then said, "I think you
can. I've come to you for help."
He hesitated for a moment, then continued: "We're practicing for
vesper services at our church, to be given in two weeks, but our leading
soprano became ill yesterday. She will not be able to be with us for some
time. If we cannot find someone to take her place we will have to give up
the service. In our trouble Ilve come to you."
Janet looked at him. "How did you know I sang ?" she asked.
The minister smiled. "I've heard youf' he answered. "I walked down
the hill behind you Friday afternoon and you were singing. It was won-
derfull I was sorry when you vanished at the foot of the hill, but now, since
our singer is ill, will you take her place?,'
Janet was silent a moment. "I don't go to church," she replied some-
The minister nodded. "I know, I wish you would. However, the
question that is now before us is, will you take her place and sing for us ?"
Janet frowned slightly. She didn't like to refuse outright, but one thing
was certain, she wasnlt going to sing in the church, there were all the girls,
and she wanted to be with them. If she agreed to sing, all her good times
would be over.
She looked at the minister again and was about to refuse, but something
in the worn, tired face moved her. She didn't speak for a minute, and when
she did. she said something she had not intended to say.
"I'll do it," she said.

The minister's tired face lighted with gladness.
"This is very kind of you, Miss White," he said gratefully.
There were rehearsals twice a week, and ,Ianet was obliged to go. But
after the first time it wasn't so bad. The second time was much better.
Janet took a fancy to one of the girls who sang second soprano, and she liked
the organist, who was such a quiet, modest girl, much different from the girls
in the self-centered, pleasure-seeking set she belonged to. The minister
always dropped in to see how things were progressing, and it proved to be a
very pleasant time all around.
Before long Janet began to feel ashamed of her past conduct, selfishly
seeking pleasures, foolishly spending money, and disappointing her parents.
Something of the beauty of the hymns had stolen into her heart and made her
regret many of the foolish things she had done.
The vesper services were given at the appointed time. The church was
crowded to the doors, and Janet was glad that she had not refused to sing.
Out over the audience her beautiful voice floated.
.The minister, listening, was strangely moved. Here was a voice that
must be dedicated to all mankind.
At the conclusion of the services the minister shook Janet's hand, saying:
"Miss White, I want to thank you for your assistance. Without you the ser-
vice would have failed."
He paused a little, then continued very earnestly: "Miss White, with
that voice you could bring happiness into the lives of many. Why not use
it in our choir ?"
Janet did not hesitate this time.
GLADYS KRINICK, Class of '27,
T was a summer afternoon, a hot,'lazy, sultry day. Ned, a ucullud
gen'man," shuffled along the sidewalk pulling a red wagon with a bundle
of clothes in it. He Was thinking, thinking of his hard lot, the lot of
having to collect and deliver clothes which his wife, Cindy, washed for the
white families in the village of Pleasantville.
"Oh, how nice it would be to be snoozin' under a great tree with the
bees hummin' in the nearby fields, with nothin' to do but sleep, and dream,
and doze!" thought he.
As Ned moved along he felt that something was following him. He
turned around, and at the back of the wagon, with her long goatee stringing
below her chin, and with hair of a peculiar color, marched a goat.
Ned said, "Shoo, goat!" and went on his way.
Presently he turned around again and there was the goat.
"Well," thought Ned, "it is not my fault if the goat takes a liking to me."
So he went on.
When Ned reached his shack his two little pickaninnies came tumbling
out the gate.

"Pappy, have yo' all done brought us a goat? Huh? How much didja
pay fo' it? Who d'ja get him from, Pap? Huh ?"
"Law, hush up, you chillupslu said Ned. 'fDonlt let yo' ma see this yer
goat in dis condition of color."
"lllammy's hangin' clols on de line, so I'11 get some soap out de kitchen
an, we'll wash de goat down at de creek," said one of the pickaninnies.
When Cindy came in from hanging clothes she busied herself in making
hoe-cake. As she worked she sang in a loud clear voice:
'KSwing low, sweet chariot,
Comin, for to carry me home."
Suddenly, as she looked out the front door, she stopped singing, put her
hands on her hips, and stormed out through the door into the front yard.
There stood Ned and his pickaninnies, and Narcissus, alias the goat.
"Nebukaneza Jeoshaphat George Washington Abraham Lincoln Zachari
Brown, where'd yo' all get dat goat? Don' lie to me, you black son o' satan l"
yelled Cindy. '
'fNow, Cindy, now, now," soothed Ned. "Don' go get mad jes 'cause
a goat went an' followed me home."
"Went an' followed yo' all home," scornfully replied Cindy. "Nothin'
follow yo' all home, niggah, unless yo' all coaxed it pow'ful much."
"Hones', now, Cindy," said Ned, "dat goat jes, nachally followed me
'thout me even coaxin' it. 'Sides, Clarence and George Washington kin hitch
up de goat to de wagon an' go ridin' like some o' dose white chilluns does.
Law, Cindy, look how pretty and white Narcissus am. Ain't she a beaut?
Uh huh. l'll say she am."
But Cindy turned on her heel and stalked into the house Without even so
much as a remark about Narcissus' white hair.
Cindy thought a "pow'ful lot 0' Ned," so, of course, the goat stayed. But
Narcissus was into mischief all the time-if it was not the-clothes basket
she was chewing on, it was the clothes. If she did not try to walk through
the house, she was scratching in the flower beds. Cindy fussed and fumed
about the goat continually. She threatened to kick it, kill it, oh! anything, if
Ned did not take it away. But she did not carry out any of her threats.
In the meantime Ned became lazier and lazier. Cindy threatened, yelled
and did everything in her power to make him go about his work faster, but
it was in vain. Cindy used to tell Ned that "Ha'nts" were going to get him
for being so lazy, but Ned said he did not believe in "Ha'nts," so she had to
try other means for getting more work from him.
Now, one night Ned went to see an old negro friend who claimed that
he had had many experiences with ghosts. On this particular night he enter-
tained his guest with ghost tales.
When Ned came home he was feeling rather shivery, but he tried to
whistle the feeling away. As he entered the gate there came from around the
house, gliding ever so softly, a "Ha'nt!"
Ned sprang into the air ,and when his feet again hit the ground, he ran
into the house as fast as his shaking legs could carry him.
"Cindy, Cindy!" he whispered frantically, "they's a ha'nt, a ha'nt, I tells
va, right by de side o' de house." And with that Ned crawled under the bed.

Now, Cindy was not very brave, and she was afraid of ghosts, too, but
she would do anything to prove her bravery to Ned, so she armed herself
with a broom, tiptoed stealthily out the door and around the house. There
surely enough, was the "Ha'nt." Cindy started to run, but as she turned
she heard a faint "baa-a-a." It was Narcissus tangled up in a sheet that
Cindy had forgotten to bring in frotn the line.
Cindy told Ned that she scared the "Ha'nt" away, but that it told her
that if her husband didnot "step livelier" it was going "to get him."
To this day Ned does "step lively," for, if he does not, Cindy reminds him
of the ghost's visit. And to this day Narcissus is the pride, the pet and the
pest of the family.

The "Kids" In My Row
Buster sits dreaming o'er his books
And worrying about his looks,
Cecile with Math her only care,
Archie always taking a dare.
Millie is such a modest girl,
Her bobbed hair never tries to curl.
And Elizabeth goes to class
Prepared for the test she must pass.
Morris's thoughts afar off there,
Not troubled with study or care,
Wilma, chatterbox as ever,
Talks away. Will she stop? Never!
Then La Velle, the angel in front,
Never pulls off any bad stunt.
Now, I hope no one will be mad-
lWy aim is to make teacher glad.

P Lake Tiche
RIDAY morning at about 1:30 olclock a little Indian girl was born.
She was the daughter of the princess. She was supposed to be very
beautiful, truthful and wise, because she was born at the hour when
the spirits of beauty, wisdom and truth appeared each morning.
When she was about five years old the village was plundered by Chawc-
taws. Little Tiche fled into a small cave in the mound and lay flat in the
soft sand trying to escape the dangers of the battle. A savagely flying toma-
hawk hit her on the head and she lay unconscious for many hours while the
battle raged in all its fury not one hundred yards away.
VVhen all her people had been either killed or carried away into captivity,
the enemy went into their houses, took all the food and Weapons they wanted,
destroyed the rest, and returned to their own village. Before their departure,
however, little Tiche was discovered by the chief's son, and his father com-
manded some of his braves to carry her to their own village for a playmate
for Okema, his son.
The memory of this horrible battle was clearly impressed upon Tichels
mind, but as the years Wore on it began to fade as even a bright color will
fade in the strong light of the sun.
As she grew into young Womanhood, she became very beautiful. She
was loved by all her captors and never treated as a slave except by the old
chief, who had now retired and left active ruling of the tribe to his brave
son. Each time Tiche saw the braves leave the camp she longed to know
where they went, and' her thoughts struggled through the grey curtain which
hid all memory of her earlier home and childhood.
One day after a hard battle Okema was brought home wounded. The
:hief, knowing the danger to his son, sent for the captive girl, Tiche, to be
brought before him. When she begged to be allowed to care for him, the old
chief finally consented on the condition that if Okema's life was not saved
she would be sacrificed to the Great Spirit to appease his anger for the early
death of so great and strong a Chieftain.
Tiche's skill and the very best efforts of the medicine-man failed to save
Okema's life, and after the ceremony at his burial the chief sent for the cap-
tive girl to fulfill her promise. Tiche, however, was not to be found. For
hours the search continued, but without avail. Late in the night a brave,
wandering beside a beautiful lake, saw her body in the Water near the shore.
An old squaw told of having heard her singing the Sivansong while the chief-
tain was being buried. She had chosen this way of going to the Great Spirit-
a princess' death, not that of a captive.
Since the day of her death the Chawctaws have called this lake Tiche, but
the old chief stoutly insisted that a lake should not be named for a captive,
so he always called it Spirit Lake.

Once in a Hundred Years
A curious thing appears-
Russell Mills forgets to come,
Anna Rea- for once is dumb,
Once in a hundred years.
Once in a hundred years
Theresa and Glen forget to meetg
Margaret forgets to cross her feet 5
V. H. S. might court defeat-
Once in a hundred years.

Would Kenneth quarrel with Wayne,
Or Percy go stepping a jane,
Or Tiny take a husband again-

Immediately after the beginning of school, September 8, Coach Austin
began the task of shaping his football prospects into a team. He was blessed
with the return of eight lettermen from last year. VVith these as a back-
bone, he expected to develop a winning team.
The team drilled hard, and with the aid of a strong second team was
ready to meet the O. A. All-Stars in the first tilt of the season September 18.
The team showed remarkable skill for the time it had practiced both on the
defensive and on the offensive, and they had little trouble in defeating their
opponents, the final score being 15-O. This heightened the spirits of both
coach and team and made them work hard to polish up the rough spots before
the first league game to be played with Knappa High Saturday, Septem-
The good showing our team has made is largely due to the untiring sup-
port of the business men of Vernonia and the students of our school.

On September 25 Knappa-Svenson Union High School played our team
on the local gridiron. The game was uninteresting because of the large
score run up by the Vernonia eleven. The Whistle sounded with the score
The following Saturday, October 2, Rainier Hi met our team here.
The game was hard fought, neither team gaining consistently in the first
three quarters, although V. H. S. had the ball on their opponent's six-inch
line at one time. In the final quarter Hodges, V. H. S. fullback, kicked a
beautiful 47-yard place-kick to Win the game--3 to 0.
October 8 found our team in St. Helens seeking revenge for the past de-
feats St. Helens Hi had handed us. The game was full of action, but by
consistently pounding their line our team won by a score of 13 to 0.
October 23 the team went to Portland to play Acquinas Hi. This game
was a thriller anda fight from beginning to end, with both teams making
thrilling runs. We won, 27-6.
Our next game was at Scappoose, October 30. Both teams displayed good
teamwork, although V. H. S. was not up to her usual form. Scappoose was
beaten in the last minute of play, When Mills, tiny end, snagged a pass
and made a beautiful run for a touchdown. Score 10-7.
The championship game was played at Clatskanie November 7. The
game was thrilling from first to last, and although we made the more yardage
and completed twelve passes out of fifteen attempts, We were beaten, 13 to 0.
Of seven games played, we won six and scored a total of 119 points to our
opponents' 32. The season ended with Vernonia, Clatskanie and Rainier tied
for the county title. Considering the fact that our school has had football
for only three years, we feel proud of our coach and team.
After football season ended, Coach Austin issued a call for basketball.
Twenty men reported for the first regular practice. Four lettermen returned.
With these as a backbone, Coach Austin had high hopes of developing a
championship team. Practices were first started by letting every one show
his shooting ability. After the first week the first squad was chosen. This
squad was put through strenuous practice every night. The team developed
rapidly and was soon ready to engage in practice with the second squad.
The games were hotly contested and afforded good, practice for the first
team. These practice scrimmages continued for two weeks, giving every
man a chance to familiarize himself with the game. On Friday of the next
week, December 4, Vernonia was to play Banks, so all resorted to lively
practice. This game was not to be a league game, but a pre-season tilt, which
was played to put our team in shape for the opening of the season. Several
other pre-season games were played, all of which the team won. Our team
improved with each game and began looking fit and ready for the opening
of the league January 7.

Morris Bennett, who played forward for our team, always kept his 'oppo-
nent guessing, and when an extra point was needed, one could bet on Morris.
Morris has another year.
lVIarshall Malmsten played his first year at forward. Although a new
man, he performed like a veteran and his ability in shooting baskets won
many of our games. Marshall graduates.
Glen Hawkins finished his basketball career at center. His height and his
shooting eye made him a dangerous man. During his two years at center,
he has led his school in high scoring. Glen graduates this year.
Kenneth Whitsell was our standby at running guard. He seldom let an
opponent pass him for a shot at the basket. His ability to make long shots
was remarkable. The team loses Kenneth this year.
Donald Hodges won praise for himself in the position of standing guard.
He played a hard, fast game, always keeping his opponent checked. Donald
has another year. .
Gilbert Bergerson, the little, big man of the team, was never hampered by
the size of his opponent. His height gave him a decided advantage. Gilbert
has another year.
lt's not the individual
Or the army as a whole,
But the everlasting teamwork
That won Vernonia's goal.

teams sinking some good shots. St. Helens was defeated, 22 to 20.
One of the most thrilling pre-season games of the year was played with the
Pacific University Rooks. The lead alternated between the two teams dur-
ing the entire game. The outcome was doubtful until the final whistle,
when the score stood Z4 to 25 in favor of Vernonia.

the first whistle and did not cease until the last one blew. When the smoke

tacular ball, they were defeated by a score of 35 to 8.

nearly got it. The game was close and hard fought. Both teams displayed
basketball ability. We won, 20 to 18.

The Vernonia High School girls' basketball team again Won the cham-
pionship for Columbia County. We can indeed be proud of our team, for this
is the fourth consecutive year that they have "brought home the bacon." From
the showing the team has made in the past against the teams in this district
it is obvious that we have material far above the average, and it is hoped that
next year we may play more outside teams. Who knows--perhaps next
year Vernonia will be state champion.
Della Cline, forward. Della was the "lucky shot" of the team, and is our
high point forward. Regular in practice, faithful to the team, she can always
be depended upon.
Louise Simmons, forward. Always to be depended upon, steady and
consistent in her playing, coming through with 'baskets When they are least
Theresa Tackett, guard. Theresa is the veteran of the team. Her gradua-
tion leaves a good record and a hard place to fill. Theresa played every
minute with all her might-and she's some guard.
Ida Mae Hawkins, guard. Ida Mae plays a steady game, is enthusi-
astic, and is "hard to get around." She and Theresa made a matchless pair.
Mildred Hawkins, jumping center. Mildred was the only Freshman on
the team. She can dribble a ball like a boy, think twice. to her opponent's
once, and is always "up and at 'em."
Helen Hieber, running center. Helen is quick as a flash and always there
when the ball is. Mildred and Helen made a team that is still to be matched
in speed and harmony in play.
Anna Rea Webster and Shella Williams, substitutes. Whenever called
upon, Shella and Anna Rea entered the game fighting to win. They are lost

The Greatest Conflict
V. H. S. Vs. Birkenfield
CBy A. Narrow Marginj '
The referee blew the whistle and the
game started immediately. Vernonia
turning her guns, began showering the
baskets from all angles. Cline, Vernonia's
forward, made several nice sprints, but
was called back for jumping the gun.
The teamwork of the forwards was mar-
velous. Simmons and Cline executed sev-
eral triple plays unassisted. Hawkins,
Vernonia's center, landed some vicious
blows to the chin, but had her foot off the
mat, and was called to the center of the
ring. Hieber, Vernonia's weight man,
fell short on several puts to the green,
failing to make the course in par. Her
cannonball serves often upset the for-
wards. Tackett, the strong arm guard,
had bitter trouble in her "punting," but,
on a poorly executed spin, landed squarely
on her nose. Hawkins, the tiny guard,
weighed in at five hundred and forty, was
battered about the diamond recklessly.
All during the game the Vernonia coach
paced the side lines wailing for less bas-
kets. As a last resort Williams, a pinch
hitter, was sent in and flew out over the
fence. In the fracas her head gear was
lost. On returning to look for it, she
was tagged out at first. Webster, an-
other Vernonia guard, went down several
times for the count of nine. On one of
her spectacular sprints down the ice, she
ran squarely into a straight right, which
cracked the paint on her nose, opening up
a large gash. The veterinary was called
and play was soon resumed for the con-
cluding minutes of the game. The score
ended 33 to 6 in Vernonia's favor.
VOICES FROM THE FUTURE
Self-government in the Senior room has
changed considerably in the past year.
No one is known to speak or move dur-
ing school hours, and Mr. VVilkerson
does not have to worry, for the Seniors
are the best class he has ever had.
The Freshman class defeated the Senior
class boys in a very exciting basketball
game Friday night.
Clarence Fowler called the student body
to order Tuesday. A heated discussion

Comin' through the rye?
just a song at twilight,
When the lights are low,
Under the spreading chestnut tree,
Where the corn and taters grow.

Because they all love you.
