LOOKINQ FGRWARD One day as I was riding along through the woods about ten miles from the lodge where I was spending my summer vacation, I saw a wonderful sight. It was one of the beautiful canyons in Arizona. The deep chasm was v- shaped with walls of tremendous size, which looked red when the sun shone on them. It made me shudder just to look down the steep, rock-strewn trail along which one must go in order to reach the floor of the canyon, but far dawn at the bottom 1 saw the white tops of tents and small objects moving about. I was loath to go until I had found out what the objects Were: besides, the wild, beautiful grandeur of the place called me. The low, mellow murmur of run- ning water decided me, so I jerked the reins of my horse and started down the steep, dangerous trail, my horse walking with his legs stiff and his head bent low. As I neared the place where I had seen the tents, I saw that it was agypsy camp. Small ragged children were running about everywhere, many of them wading in the water. Just asI approached the stream, and was akcut to cross, I saw one of the little boys lose his footing and fall in. He was so frightened that, although the water was not deep, he could not rise. I had heard of the iciness of these Arizona waters, and, when the little boy began to cry for heip, I went in after him. The waters were very cold indeed, and the poor little boy was frightened to death. When I had picked him up, I took him back to the camp where I was met by a beautiful black-haired gypsy girl who came up to me and took the little boy. After thanking me very much. she asked me if I wanted her to read my palm or to tell me anything about the future. At first I was inclined to refuse, but then it occurred to me that here was a way to learn the whereabouts of my former class mates. According- ly, I asked this black-eyed beauty if she could tell me of the class of 1924. For answer she ran into one of the tents and came out with a huge crystal ball. She explained that in it she would be able to see those about whom I wished to learn, and that she would reveal to me their careers. She sat down cross-legged and held the crystal in her lap. Ialso sat down. For a few min- utes she never said a word, but just sat gazing into the crystal. Her black eyes took on gradually a dreamy expression as she kept them fixed on the crystal ball. All at once a little smile lit the corners of her mouth, and she began to talk in a trance-like, sing-song voice. "I see the face of a beauti- ful black-haired dancing girl who is trying to say something. Look in this ball to see if you can see her." I looked in the ball and saw Lorna Cochrane. Her lips seemed to ie forming the words. "Hello, Freda", and Iwas about to answer, so life-like did she seem, when the vision faded away and another took form. The gypsy told me not to look, for, if I did, the vision would not be so clear. Then she began to speak. .lki

Za. M y 1920 - - 1921 On August 9, 19120, about eighty-two new and inexperienced fresh- men entered the A. U H. S. According to the sophfrnores, tle inilaiicri of these fresh, green, young things proved to be a great -success, src' all became acquainted with the school. Towards the end of the year the freshman picnic was held at Moon- stone. 1921 - - 1922 The opening of sr-hool found most of the preceding year'sfreshmen back to begin their sophomore career. The first pleasure was in seeing the fresh- men act foolishly when they were successfully initiated into the A. U. H. S. The Sophomore Halloween Party was enjoyed by all who attended. The Interclass Athletic Cup was awarded to the Sophomore class for having the majority of points in the various games played. The picnic was held at Camp Bauer. ' 1922 - - 1923 The work in the third year was begun with much enthusiam. An act- ive part was taken in all branches of athletics and school activities. The annual Junior Candy Pri' was held in the agriculture room where everybody enjoyed a good time A The Senior and I .n.ior Picric was held at Camp Bauer, and everyone had a wonderful outing. 1923 - - 1924 Over the top! How proud and elated the seniors have been to be con- sidered leaders in A. U. H. S. Of the eighty-two who started as Freshman there are twenty-seven, but, with the entrance of others, the graduating class numbers thirty-three. With the help of our class teacher, Miss Gallagher, and of the rest of the class, the Clmietn as Dinner turned out a great success. Freak Day prfdwted many kinds of "freaks" and much noise and laughter in the different classes. . ' Many as mer evfnts will occupy the busy seniors' time until happy high school days are endedby graduation.

"I seea little cottage nestled in some hills. The owners are Frank Acorn and Dorothy Christie? The gypsy said nothing for a while, but at length she began to speak again. "The scene has changed to Venice, I see two people in a gondola. The man is Lester Spellenberg who, in order that he may woo the most haughty society woman of Europe and America,has joined the group of Americans who live abroad. The lady is Ruth Brown. 7' The gypsy ran her fingers across the crystal as if to clear away the vision, while I sat waiting, excited and breathless because I was hearing all about my old friends and classmates. She began talking again in her slow voice. "I see a hospital where a nurse is sitting beside the bed of a patient. The nurse is Imogene Brundin, but, since the vision of the patient is in- distinct, he can not have been a member of your class. "Now I see a great opera house. In the scene is a man whose name is Michael Pontoni. He is the women's idol. The leading lady is a fair-haired, beautiful girl whose name is Lillian Gray. As I glance around through the opera house I see many faces. One attracts my attention because he is look- ing and smiling at the two acting upon the stage. His name is Clemens Mc- Claskey. He is a wealthy broker. " I did not say a word for fear of breaking the spell, but just drew in my breath with a glad sigh, for as the gypsy talked, I again saw the dear faces I had known in old A. U. H. S. where I had spent four very happy years My reverie was interrupted by the gypsy. "I see two women hurriedly walking down a crowded street in Pekin. They are missionaries whose names are Kathleen Anderson and Estelle Preston. I also see the palace of the Emperor. He and the United States ambassador are in conference. The ambassador is Wanah Randle. Above the emperor's palace is a very large aeroplane. In it is a man named An- drew Smith, who is captain of the world's largest passenger plane. Two passengers I see very clearly. One is Alexia Devlin, a society belle, and the other is Monroe Spaght, a man of great wealth in the United States." I did not wonder much at Monroe's progress, because anyone who had been as studious as he had been in high school would naturally become a great man. The gypsy's voice broke in on my thoughts as she continued speaking. "In the castle of Sweden I see a man who used to go with you to high school. His name is William Lundberg. Because of his ability to speak the Swedish language and because of his knowledge of the immigration question he has been asked to confer with the king of Sweden about the Swedish immigrants to the U. S. " The fortune teller kept right on. 115
