32 THE CRIMSON
THE PRO AND CON OF 1916.
"Full many a flower is born to blush
And waste its sweetness on the desert
Not so, however, with the Pro and
Con of 1916, for, supported by a large
body of industrious, punctual, energetic
members and guided by lWiss Seagrave,
Faculty Advisor, we have become known
as "The Pro and Con." Our Monday
evening meetings quickly reveal thc se-
cret of our success, for here every mem-
ber has a chance to train himself in a
work which Will be a help and a joy to
him thruout his whole life. Here we
gain a taste for the greatest authors
and poets. Here we obtain an insight
to the meanings of selections whose big-
ness of thought had at first meant little
or nothing to us. Here, we learn par-
liamentary rules which are of the most
practical use to usg and here we gain
training in the composition and delivery
of debates, orations, essays, declama-
tions and dramatizations. Two of the
best dramatizations of this year were
'jones' Courtship," realistically given
by Cocha Ball, Albert Zook and Hous-
ton Trvineg and the quarrel scene from
"lVIary, Queen of Scots," with Nellie
Anderson as the proud, haughty, jealous
Queen lflizabeth, and Sallie Winsby as
the penitent, pleading, downtrodden
Pro and Con had many things of
which to be proud, but that which seems
to outshine all others is the record of
its members. Of the three Pro and Con
members entered in the preliminary con-
test for declamation, one, Sallie VVinsby,
was given first place, and another,
Cocha Ball, tied for second place. In
the preliminary for debate four entered
and three made the teams. Nloreover,
the winning team in the contest were
both Pro and Con stars. Then, too,
aside from the splendid results of the
contest, Pro and Con boasts of a strong
body of students who are energetic, en-
thusiastic, punctual, and regular. The
full membership of the society is as fol-
Pro and Con has bi-monthly elections
in order that more of the members may
have the practice of occupying and exe-
cuting the duties of the different offices.

Likewise, Pro and Con may well be
proud of the splendid social times in
which the society participates. The
most important of these is the banquet
which was given at 6:15 on the evening
of bfay Day. The color scheme of
crimson and gold, the society's colors,
was very cleverly and artistically used.
Pro and Con members owe the success
of the evening very greatly to bliss Sea-
grave, Miss Hughes and the Cooking
Girls. The lN1enu was as follows:
lN1eat Loaf Potatoes Delmonico
Hot Biscuits Rhubarb Nlarmalade
lce Cream Angel Food Cake
The after-dinner talks and toasts
were heartily enjoyed by all.
All in all, the Pro and Con of 1916
has had a wonderful success in all its
branches of Work.

THE CONTEST AT IOLA.
The debaters and declaimer, accom-
panied by Mr. Bass, Miss Stewart,
Mrs. Defebaugh and Mr. Raymond
Fields, left for lola on Friday morning,
April 28. During the afternoon they
visited the High School and the Pres-
byterian church, where the contest was
held, in order to accustom themselves
somewhat to their surroundings. Be-
fore the contest in the evening, the
contestants were introduced to their op-
ponents, the judges and the presiding
oflicer, Mr. Baxter McLean.
The debate began at 8 o'clock. The
Iola debaters were one boy and one
girl. Both sides became warmed up
over the question, thus furnishing the
necessary spice for the occasion. After
the debate the decisions were taken up
and the declamations immediately 'fol-
,WXX kk!N,,.H Mm V , ,. ,.
lowed. After these were given the
critical moment had arrived and every-
one waited on tenterhooks of suspense
while the decisions were taken up. The
announcement of the results was re-
ceived with great applause by the audi-
ence, thus showing a good spirit on the
the part of lola, for the decisions were
both unanimous, making lola the win-
ner in debate and Fort Scott the winner
in declamation. The Fort Scott de-
baters were rather 'depressed until Mr.
Bass had phoned to Fort Scott and
learned the outcome of the contest there.
This put a more cheerful look on the
faces of all. We believe, however, and
some lola people expressed it as their
opinion that the debate was too close to
Warrant a unanimous decision.
On the whole, however, the school
feels well satisfied, as it won three of
the four events.
T H E C R
FORT SCOTT-IOLA CGNTEST.
VVhat's the matter with F. S. H. S.?
They're all right! Sure enough, thatls a
fact. We're good at anything! Hon-
estly, everything-football, basketball
and last, but perhaps greatest, debating
and declaiming. We won! Qlfxcuse
me. Iola. I forgot you won one point.l
The trial is over and the judge decided
for us on three points out of four. The
contest was held in the auditorium Fri-
day, April 28. The question for debate
was: "Resolved, That there should be
compulsory arbitration in all railroad
labor disputesf' Our boys here took
the affirmative side. Will O'Connor
and Albert Zook defeated the lola con-
testants, Miss Felline Evans and Norris
Tarman, by a vote of two to one.
The rebuttal speeches were all very
Well given, but VVill 0'Connor's was
perhaps the best rebuttal speech that
could be given in a high school debate.
The Crimson also won in declamation,
being represented by Miss Bessie Cle-
land, who won the unanimous vote of
the judges over Miss Pearl Heath of
lola. Miss Cleland gave HA Few Bars
in the Key of G,'l and Miss Heath,
The judges were C. T. Rice of the
Argentine High School and E. A.
Bishop and C. A. Spensor. both of Kan-
sas City, Kansas, High School.
Howard VVhistler and Archie Pellett
represented F. S. H. S. in debate at
lola, taking the negative side, and Miss
Sallie Winsby Was our declaimer, giving
"The Going of the White Swan." At
lola we won the declamation by a unani-
mous vote, but lost the debate.
Although we are sorry we could not
have won all, we rejoice in our success
and hope that in the years to come F.
S. H. S. will always be as successful as
she has been during the past year. For
our declaimers and debaters we wish
continued good fortune.

Nineteen-sixteen has been an unusually
successful year for the Boys Glee Club.
The enrollment of members has exceed-
ed that of any previous year since the
club has been organized, and at each ap-
pearance before the public they have
been highly complimented on their Work.
Miss Vvoodson has worked hard with
the organization and deserves much
credit for their success. A. G. B.

January 29, 1916.
My Dearest Edith:
Oh! I have something good to tell
you, but I am so sorry you couldn't have
been here last night, for you certainly did
miss the greatest thing of your life!
The Senior play, "Close to Namrc," 'was
given last night. The very thing I have
been looking forward to for weeks. And
talk about it. it was just simply grand!
I can hardly express it in words.
There was a big crowd there Cwe are
thankful for thatj and the orchestra
played before and after the playa and
between the acts, while the mixed quar-
tette sang after the first act, and the
girls' quartet after the second act.
Frances Smith took the part of hlrs.
Wellman, who Was a social aspirant and
very disagreeable. Frances took fthe
part simply line, making a beautiful char-
acterization. The part of her husband,
Mr. Wellman, was taken by Erle Schu-
maker. Oh. you know Erle! I-Ie is so
jolly and funny, he just kept us laughing
all the time we were there. Edith
Buchanan took the part of Barbara, their
daughter. She did excellent acting and
looked so sweet! Her small brother,
Teddy, was George Hanes, who was the
typical bad boy. Carrie, Wellman's
servant, was Mary Peake, who looked a
darling. Some of the other characters
were: Alonzo K. Dewsnap, editor of
a health magazine. Ralph Moore
played that part, and he was so
good. jarks, a Canadian backwoods-
man, was Lowell Van Brunt. He was
undoubtedly funny-looking. lN'lrs. lVluir-
head was the farmer's wife at Farm
Spring, and that was played by hladge
Boyer. Everyone did well and also
showed that they had talent.
Three cheers for the Seniors of 1916!
As ever, your Senior friend,

THE BOYS' INTERCLASS BAS-
The boys' interclass basketball tour-
nament still grows in favor with the
student body. The games this year
were unusually well attended on ac-
count of the strong teams represent-
ing the four classes of the school. Prob-
ably the most important reasons for
holding these interclass games are, the
importance of getting as many pupils
interested in school work as possible.
and the chance it g'ves Coach Beam to
pick his first-team material. VVe are

ing in any of the interclass games, and

Probably the most interesting game
of the tournament wxs the one between
the Seniors and the Soploo'i'ores for the
championship, both tearrs having de-
feated the other team in the tourna-
ment. The first half resiiltel 5 to 3 in
favor of the Seniors and the second

52 THE CRIMSON
THE VVEEKLY C R I MSON.
The High School has 'instituted a
plan in the last year which has attracted
no little attention from schools far and
near, not only because of its novelty,
but because of its immense practical ad-
vantage to students in English courses.
This plan was to take one column a
week in each of the two city papers and
make the English students responsible
for the filling of that column with ma-
terial gathered together and arranged
Conitions were ideal in the Fort
Scott High School for the thorough test-
ing of a plan such as this. The two city
papers, the editors of which are enthu-
siastic boosters of the High School,
generously oliered columns in their pa-
pers free of charge for the use of the
school. High School students and fac-
ulty got behind the work and pushed it
with their usual 'lpepfl with the result
that they made Professor Devlin proud
to recommend the plan to such schools
as those in Kansas City, l.eavenworth,
Argentine and Colleyville, who, hearing
of the idea, wrote here to inquire as to
its practicability, with the object in
view of instituting it in their own
Teachers could have called for such
work as the column required. to be pre-
pared as a lesson. But preparing a les-
son lacks the incentive which actually
'lwriting up" advertisements of school
affairs, really thinking up editorials or
reporting school events has when you
know the work will be published and
that the responsibility ot getting it in
on time and in good readable form for
the public rests on you individually.
The High School is unanimously in
favor of the plan and certainly desires
it to be incorporated again next year.

THE MAY FESTIVAL.
The Public Speaking class gave a
play. So did the Music Department,
Junior, Senior and Post-Graduate classf
es. The debaters and declaimers won
honors for the school and were duly
praised. Then, on May hfth, the girls'
gymnasium classes, a department of the
school but slightly known to the public,
gave a May Day Festival. They are
now boasting of great success and of
crowds larger than those drawn by any'
of the preceding entertainments.
There were two performances, one
at 3:15, the other at 8:00. Both began
promptly and in the view of a crowded
balcony, the girls put on the national
dances very well indeed. In fact they
did so well, that the audience demand-
ed a second show in the evening.
The participants are sure that at
least part of their success was due to
the beautifully decorated gymnasium,
for the boys' gym. classes had hung
from the balcony deep festoons of green
an-d white and had adorned the Queen's
throne in the same colors. Many vases
of flowers were set about the room,
making it all the prettier. In behalf of
the girls, we wish to thank the boys for
their kindness and help.
A word of thanks is also extended to
the public for its attendance and con-

Lela Henley. There were no better
ones in either the Children's Dances nor
the VVinding of the May Pole, but
Mary Bowie, our little Scotch girl, dem-
onstrated the Highland Fling perfect-
ly. The other girls in the dance did
their best, but she did better than the

we were very proud, appeared delight-

of hands, the noise of egg-beaters, the
hum of sewing machines, the reading of
German, the hammer 'lwhat you hit on

fire at Othick Park and stayed till

Happenings in "'l'urkey" month
taken from the diary of a football
Nov. 5-The football team went
to Chanute with good spirits and
high hopes for a victory. Chanute
263 Fort Scott, 7.
S M A S H l
The most interesting part of this
trip was that Cheney and Nlac be-
came acquainted with a car ot Cha-
nute girls and came nearly missing
the train. And they rather shocked
our modesty by kissing the four
girls once around right in front of
the rest of us, as the train pulled
out. lt's always the truth that
hurts. Poor HSuds" innocently
carried four "soft-boiled" bricks in
his suitcase to Chanute.
Nov. 8-Back at football prac-
Hl lurry it up.
VX e must practice hard if We ew-
pect to heat Columbus.
Nov. 10-"Babe," "lJoc.'
"Suds," Ted and Potter took a joy
ride in Potter's car. But it soon
leaked out that they buried the
cake. Xvhat cake? Fruit cake.
Vllhere? That's the question.
VVhen to be used? Commence-
Nov. 14-Columbus arrived
With her notorious eleven. The al-
ways hopeful Fort Scott squad en-
tered the game in good spirits, but
came out ol' the game with blasted
hopes and a score of 39 to O in ta-
vor of Columbus.
Nov. 24-Rumor is afloat that
lfouts and NVelch are sick: ordered
by the doctor not to go to lola with
Nov. 25-'lBabe" and L'Suds"
also came down on the sick list and
cannot go to lola. HDoc" up all
night trying to learn the trade of
Afternoon-Badly crippled team
and rooters board the special for
lola. The team -dressed on the
train and Went directly to the field
and tried to play football. But the
team couldn't do anything Without
a center or a quarterback, and lola
scored 64 points, while Fort Scott
failed to score. Too badl

lXf1onday, 20th-This was a duo-

Poor Seniors lost.

Faculty and Seniors fought a round

a sort of farewell general assembly
that morning, but nothing unusual
happened, except vacation followed
and a number of college Hpillsll

Thursday, 13th-The Seniors
gave a tacky party at Marjory jar-

that l make a date. l did, but it

ketball game with Paola tonight,
but my conscience hurt so badly l
didn't enjoy the game at all. l
kept thinking of that theme for

boys need a handle on their basket

THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY
From the diary of a frivolous
and romantic Senior girl.
Feb. l-l hoped Percy would
ask. me for a date to the Fort
Scott choir concert, and he did, sure
enough. l had a good time, too, ex-
cept for the old pill that sat beside
me and kept looking at me. Ralph
certainly is a song bird. Nly. it
Feb, 3-Oh, my! l am glad the
teachers have gone to Colleyville,
so I can make up some of that
, mam i. U
Feb. 5-YVell, what do you know
about that? 0ur team beat Joplin
High team, 46-23. lve all had an
idea they might be beaten.
Feb. 8-l don't see what Hurst
and Harry see so funny about "you
all." They just mock me all the
time. But l can laugh at Hurst to-
day. He can't talk, because he al-
most lost two teeth in basketball
practice last night.
Feb. ll-Nlarjory and jay and
Ralph and l went to the basketball
game. And l was so nervous l
could hardly walk home. Sure was
some exciting game. But those pills
won by two points.
Feb. 18--The basketball team
went to Pleasanton at 6:20, and l
certainly did want to go, because
there were lots of girls that did
go, and Miss Stewart went, too.
Oh, well, that's quite easily ex-
plained. She will have a collar and
chain on him pretty soon.
Feb. 22-Another vacation, but
that doesn't help matters a bit.
Percy took lna to the big blasonic
dance, and he knew l Wanted to go.
l am sure we will have something
to talk about next time I let him
come out. Margery tried to con-
sole me, but it didnlt do much good.
Feb. 25-Ruby Ober was a
dream tonight, and she certainly did
play her part line. But Louis was
too still. lVasn't that some last
scene? l thought l would die. But
I liked the play.

Feb. 26-Another exciting bas-
ketball game. Fort Scott All Stars,
423 l.owe-Campbells. 28. One of
the K. C. boys was injured, and l
couldnlt look at him because he
looked as if he might die right
there. I -don't see why they didn't
take him to the hospital. There
were some cute fellows from Law-
rence, but I wouldn't say anything
to Ralph, because he might not take
me to the Elks' dance Thursday
night, and I am planning on going.
I told Nlarion I would give him two
dances if Ralph would let me.
Feb. 28-Ralph is getting back
in good graces now. VVe went to
the Zoellner Quartette. VVilson,
Verne Powell Che certainly is hand-
some, but he won't even look at me,
or I might smile at himj and Ted
ushered. Ted winked at me, but
then, I know it was unintentional,
because he didnlt look at me once
more all evening.
Feb. 29-Seems that I should write
something on this date, as I can do
it only once in four years. Nothing
unusual, though. .Iust went down
town and shopped. I really won-
der what will happen between this
date and the next time I can write
on February 29. Goodness sakesl
I hope something exciting happens.

Slip around in front
And give her a crank.

And just look wise,
And watch it throw dust

You can't hear her bark,
Just ease off your throttle
And shut off your spark.

74 THE CRIMSON
REPORT FROM CRIMSON'S XVAR
Numerous stories both pathetic and
comic come to us from our war cor-
respondent in Europe. The following
is one of the former and was related by
a convalescent British "Tommy" in the
St. Antoine Hospital in Paris. It was
told in the sportsmanlike manner in
which "Tommy" always admires the
cool facing of grim death, even if that
facing is done by a spy of the hated
" 'E was a 'ell of a good lookin' devil,
blue eyes, curly 'air, tall, broad shoul-
dered, and as I afterwards found out 'e
spoke English like a book. 0' the eight
o' us bloakes wot rounded 'im in, only
three got back and 'ed 'o got us if 'is
gun 'aden't 'o jammed.
U 'E was ordered to be shot next
morning and as I was on the executin
squad I got a chance to speak to 'im
while we was watin' for orders to march
out to where 'is grave was dug and
where 'e was to be shot.
"I felt sorry for the poor devil, and
to sort 'o cheer 'im up a bit I offered
'im the makins of the last bag I 'ad. 'E
rolled it slowly, 'is fingers as steady as
mine and when I 'anded 'im a match 'e
nodded and smiled. In a second,
'owever, 'e became serious and said,
"Tommy, I'd like to ask a favor of
"Well," I said, "If it don't go against
orders, I'll do it."
"It won't," 'e whispered eagerly,
and reaching into an inner pocket 'e
drew out a small package. 'Is 'ands was
shakin' now and 'is breath comes jerky
like. U 'Ere it is," 'e said and drew out
a regulation army bullet with a small
cross cut in the end of it.
"I'd like to 'ave ye kill me with
that," 'e said cooly. And then noticin'
my surprised look 'e explained.
"When I was a bit of a kid my fath-
er, who was an engraver, took me into
'is office and let me watch 'im while 'e
cut that cross in there. VVhen 'e was
through 'e 'anded it to me and said,
"keep it, it will bring you good luck
some day." They got the old man at
Ypres and for 'is sake I'd like to make
'is prophesy come true."
"But you don't mean to call death
good luck P" I said.
H 'Ell, it's the best luck us poor dev-
ils in the trenches can ever 'ope for.
You will kill me with it, won't you?"
I nodded. I couldn't speak for that
'orrible sickenin' lump in my throat.
"Thanks friend," 'e said," and God
bless you. One more thing, 'owever,"
and 'e took an indellible pencil from 'is
pocket and drew a small cross like the
one on the bullet on 'is forehead. The
cold sweat which stood on 'is brow
turned the indellible mark to a sicken-
"I'd like to be 'it right there, please."
I promised 'im to do the best I could,
and then the order was given to march.
The orders came quick and sharp:
f'NIake ready!" "Take aim!" I look-
ed down the barrel of my gun at 'is
face. 'Is lips were smilin' and though
'is eyes were covered I knew they were
lookin' straight at me. The little pur-
ple cross on 'is 'ead seemed blurred
and appeared to take peculiar shapes
I shut my eyes and pulled. Chance
steadied my gun, 'owever, for when the
smoke cleared up a small bloody 'ole
showed where the cross 'ad been. The
prophesy was fulfilled."

politan' derived ?"
Bright Boy: 'fNapoleon."

SPECTATOR PAPER-No. 23.
In our High School there is a room
which to all appearances is as common
as any of the others, except for the fact
that there are many tables and books, not
to speak of bottles and various other fur-
niture. But this room seems to have a
certain charm which attracts people to
it after school hours. Perhaps it is the
presiding officer who is the object of in--
terest. Indeed, he is very handsome
Cso some think, tho' slightly inclined to
be a bit sanguine as to complexionj and
well known as to wit.
VVhatever the attraction, this room
serves as a congregating place for a bril-
liant coterie of wits, and therein an idle
stu-dent might while away his time in
keen enjoyment. And it quite frequently
happens, as is apt to be the case when
such wits are so thrown together, that
there are many arguments which bring
forth such orations as would do credit
It would be superfluous to give a de-
tailed discussion of any one of these dis-
agreements, but there hath been such
frequent recourse to a few favored ques-
tions and such violent disputes concern-
ing them, that the participants must
needs compromise and decide to refer
them to your most honorable judgment.
The first is a question of style. There
is one young lady who, by the way, is
not an inhabitant of our magnificent city,
who is a frequenter of these assem-
blages-and Jocinda is generally voted
a beauty and liked by all who have be-
come acquainted with her many charms.
She is tall and of the brunette type, full
of life and loves a good time. It was
she, you may remember, who trimmed
her eyebrows while home on a vacation,
and created such a sensation on her re-
turn. But, above all, is she fond of
dressy and, indeed, she is far from back-
ward in demonstrating Qher fastidious
testes along that line. I happened to be
absent during the Hrst part of this dis-
cussion, and so cannot give an account
Of how it started, altho' I have an im-
pression that it began with the young
lady's remark that the new overcoats
for the young men, which fit the upper
part of the anatomy like abanana peel,
and Hare out at the bottom as one of
those delicious fruits from which the
peeling has been partly removed, were
"perfectly ridiculousf' At any rate, the
argument was hot, and the participants
were there-Iocin-da, the aforemen-
tioned official fwhom we shall call Phil-
anderj, and another gentleman whom
everybody likes for his good nature and
keen entertaining abilities, and whom
we shall call Percival, the name by which
he is best known to his most intimate
friends. The gentlemen firmly main-
tained that the high-heeled shoes, bril-
liant hosiery, and all the fripperies of
feminine vanity were all bosh, and that
the men were the only persons who had
any common sense about clothing.
But altho' both gentlemen are known
to be good talkers, yet they could not
outdo the brilliant wit an-d pretty argu-
ments of the charming Jocinda, who
furiously raved at the hideous English
style of menls clothing and warmly cham-
pioned the delicious finery of the femi-
nine fancies. There could be no com-
promise, for the lady refused to give up
her beloved high heels and the young
men their umbrella overcoats.
The next question, Dear lVIr. Specta-
tor, which we refer to your all-wise
judgment, has to do with the wisdom of
the sexes. The ladies maintain that the
female is the wisest by far and that to
be her equal a man must be at least ten
years older. And they propound their
ideas with such pretty wisdom and deep
cogitations that the men are in for be-
lieving them themselves, but for the fact
that they are proud creatures and cock
their noses at the idea of marrying a
babe in swaddling clothes-which, in-
deed, many of them would have to do
by this ideal. Indeed, it is distressing.
for it is a vital question, and we cannot
come to any conclusion.
The other question, Mr. Spectator, is:
"Where is the seat of affections ?'l Phil-
ander, who is a man of much scientific
knowledge and little sentiment, would
have it in the head, and the male coterie
uphold himg for must not all men stick
together against these dangerous fe-
males? But Jocinda, Sacharissa, Car-
millo and the other almost equally
charming members of their sex place
it in the heart, and weep bitter, senti-
mental tears that any "old, heartless
fogy" should put it otherwise: for His
not the heart the theme of poetry, the
vital part of life and all connected with
it? Men are such blockheadsln And
the blockheads are true to their title, and
all remain firm. So, what can we do?
lndeed, blr. Spectator, our situation
of indecision hath been made very sad
and so we appeal to your superior wis-
dom and wide experience with humanity
and its problems for a solution to these
three questions. Solve them, good Mr.
Spectator, and oblige,
Your most humble servant,
XVILLIAM VVILSON-MY AVAR-
ICE IN EGYPT.
Ufitlz due apologies to the memory of
Edgar .flllen Poe.
Slowly Egypt's sun was setting be-
yond the massive pyramids and as the
last shadow fell over the enigmatical
physiognomy of the Sphinx, l, Yvilliam
Wilson, shouldering pick and spade,
could have been seen plodding over the
desert to unearth the hidden treasure
of one of the Pharaohs.
l had long been a traveler on the
islands and on the continent and, fresh
from the pleasures of Naples, was about
to search for untold wealth. The se-
cret of its hiding place had been de-
ciphered by me from the hieroglyphic-s
on the back of a scarabaeus that had
been owned by some Egyptian monarch
centuries and centuries before. Though
in Egypt but a few days, l felt sure of
my directions, as l am at home every-
The large, full moon, throwing a sul-
phurous lutre over all, arose to find me
laboriously digging for the hidden
wealth. Hour after hour l toiled away
unceasingly, my greed for gold and av-
arice spurring my tired muscles to fur-
ther efforts. The pile of dirt at my
side increased amazingly fast, until it
seemed as if it would soon rival in size
the distant pyramids.
lVhen light first began to glimmer in
the east, turning the gray clouds to hya-
cinth and purple, my efforts were appa-
rently rewarded. lNly pick had struck
something hard-the treasure was
within my reach!
l quickly cleared the remaining
earth away, a blow from my pick
opened a magnifiicent marble sarcopha-
gus, and jewels which might have been
the glory of kings and crowned the
heads of queens dazzled my eyes. As l
stooped to grasp the fortune at my feet,
overpowered by an intense sentiment of
horror, unaccountable yet unendurable,
l turned, to see the visage of the marble
figure, recumbent on the lid of the sar-
cophagus, change to the lineaments of
my omnipresent double, Nvilliam Wil-
son. .-Xt this moment l heard his ever-
remembered, low, whispering voice say-
ing: "Touch not Egypt's hidden treas-
ure," and l lost consciousness.
VVhen l regained my senses the sun
was high in the heavens and, as before
my coming, the treasure was buried -deep
and guarded by Egypt's immortal watch-

IDEAS OF A PLAIN COUNTRY
A traveler from the city once stopped
to examine my vegetable garden. l
gave him a bouquet of onions and garlic
and he went on his weary way much
stronger than before. Little do we
know the effect which the planting of a
few small seeds will have on the life
of a man. To our brothers in the city
I would say: 'fBanish the cares of the
office and indulge in the eifervescing
odors of the country air.'l l.et me tell
you why an onion strengthens the heart
and brings tears of sympathy to your
eyes. lt is because it awakens strong
chords of sympathy in every good
heart. VVhile looking at it everybody
is equal in common thought. XVe say:
"Behold a thing of strength," and the
person or persons near us are one with
us in that moment of comprehension.

But that you'll really love my lines

84 THE CRIMSON
The Seniors started off their social
calendar for 1916 with a fake burial of
their Uhoodool' fruit Cake. This was
put on for the benefit of Juniors, as the
Seniors realized that Juniors had an un-
usual love for cake. No doubt the Sen-
iors shocked the natives when they
heard their chorus of some 400 voices,
more or less, in concert that evening.
lf there were any of them who failed to
ruin their clothes rolling down hills, it
must have been an accident.
2. Naturally, the Seniors didn't
want to see "Babe" go off mad, so they
concluded they would give an informal
farewell party for him. lf a picture-
show man had been in town that night,
he would certainly have sacrificed his
life to get a glimpse of the Seniors.
It was a tacky party, and tacky in all
senses of the word, too. Bernice and
one of the boys Cthey won't say whoj
exchanged clothes-overalls and apron.
Speaking about eats! They claim them
as the best ever and thank Margery
over and over again for offering her
home as a rendezvous for the Ugangm
3. The "Dignities,l' as the Seniors
call themselves, thought that a little for-
mality would make the season more
fashionable, so gave a big gym party
for the faculty and post grads. They
took old St. Patrick as their honored
hero. The color scheme was green and
white, with blue and gold at the stair-
Way. Although all the faculty weren't
there, we had a fine time-at least the
guests said so. Qui' specialty for the
evening was a suffrage parade. Every-
one looked very striking in costumes of
green and white, and ate heartily of the
4. You can depend on the Seniors
snatching anything that's offered them.
The faculty came up with a banquet in
honor of the Seniors, and of course the
whole class turned out. A four-course
dinner was served, which was followed
by after-dinner speeches by Edith
Buchanan, Mr. Hughes, lWr. Devlin,
Bernice Foster, Ralph Moore and Miss
Pressler. Although the benefits We
reaped lasted only a few hours, the
memory of such an event will last far
into the misty annals of eternity.
5. The Seniors went on a hayrack
after the cake, and the Juniors tried to
go, too. But that's all the Juniors did
do. They thought they knew where
the cake was, but they didn't. So they
went back to where they came from and
left the Seniors to dig up their cake in
peace. But it was far from peace that
followed. Percy and Harpold didn't
like the idea of having to break rocks
to get the cake, but they had to do it.
And Hughes and Bass helped, too.
VVell, they finally dug it out and
opened the tin box with a rusty can
opener. The better half of this mys-
terious cake was eagerly devoured by
After they had eaten all there was to
be eaten, except the grass, they all went
back to the wagon, climbed aboard and
set sail for home, arriving at port about
6. The Junior-Senior reception has
n't come off yet. But, of course, a good
time is assure-d. There no doubt will
be a good crowd, as the Seniors feel like
they will have the best ever.

THE SIGNS OF THE TIME.
Though southward and eastward
threatening war clouds darken our na-
tion's horizon, the particular bit of sky
above our beloved F. S. H. S. was never
brighter. The inauspicious beginning of
our class of 1916 in the "stalls" of Con-
vention Hall is almost crowded from
our minds by the delights of our present
The building of which our town might
Well be proud is fact receiving the fin-
ishing touches, given by appropriate pic-
tures and pieces of statuary. The bust
of Lincoln resting above the door at
the left of the stage speaks of the inter-
est shown by the class of 1915, while
the handsome bas-relief, "VVashington
Crossing the Delaware," at the back
of the stage, shows the loyalty of the
class of 1913. "Burns' Cottage in Win-
ter,', adorning the west wall of the
study hall, reminds us of the victory
won in the declamation contest at Co-
lumbus by one of our own class. "The
Flight of Night," "Dawn," and "Sun-
set on the lWeadow," in the inner office,
point to the energy shown by the stu-
dents in making a success of the Art
Exhibit brought to Convention Hall.
Rembrandt's f'Mill" and i'The Shep-
herdess," which beautify the sewing-
room, give evidence of the zeal and skill
of the home economics classes as shown
in their candy bazaars. The trophy
money from the recent victories won in
the Iola-Fort Scott contest, promises
Brighter than these decorative
touches, however, are the many signs of
numberless activities pointing to the in-
creased usefulness of the school. The
columns contributed each week to both
of the city dailies cannot fail to con-
vince of the effective work of the Eng-
lish department. The class in public
speaking, of course, speaks for itself,
and the public is much delighted at its
manner of doing it. It is a new feature
in the school, which is deservedly in
The new wireless now being erected
on the top of our building bears witness
to the enthusiasm of the boys in the
physics classes. The busy scene in the
sewing room, where all are engaged in
making worth-while articles, and where
many Junior and Senior girls are making
their own frocks for the much-looked-for
event. the Junior-Senior reception, tes-
tifies to the practical work done there.
The classes in cooking have, perhaps,
the most pleasing way of demonstrating
their knowledge, and this year the fac-
ulty, the school board, the students and
the general public have been given am-
ple opportunity to judge of their skill.
lncreased interest in manual training is
evinced by the articles of increasing use-
fulness and beauty continually being
taken home from the shops.
Much as these signs betoken, doubt-
less the most propitious of all is the
great success of the night school. With
its classes in full operation, as our su-
perintendent expects to have them next
year, old F. S. H. S. will indeed be-
come not only a school for Hall the chil-
dren of all the people," as one author
has named his book, but a school for all

A LITTLE TIP
Below are listed some of the world's greatest photodramas and they
will be shown either at the Pictureland Theatre or Vaudette Theatre soon.
They are pictures that the rental is from 5100.00 per day to 535.00 per
day, featuring well known stars. Do not compare them to the ordinary
feature picture and consider yourself lucky you have the chance to see
them in Fort Scott instead of journeying to New York, Chicago or even
Kansas City. Broadway can't show any better photoplays.
'TTHE BA TTLIC CRY OF l'liACl'l,'
Adapted from Hudson Maxim's book, "Defenseless America."
This picture depicts our utter weakness against foreign invasion, and is
A CALL TO ARMS .XGAIXST WAR.
"The Ne'er Do Well," by Rex Beach. "The Bondman."
"Souls in Bondage," by Daniel Carson "The Misleading Lady."
Goodman. "The Feast of Life."
"Dollars and Cents," by Albert Pay- "Sudden Riches."
son Terhune. "Tangled Fates."
"The Eternal Sap1ho." "The Other Sister."
"God's Country and a Woman." "The Woman of It."
"Salvation Joan." "The Crucial Test."
"Ther Great Divide." "The Way of the World."
"The Prince Chap." HLa Boheme."
"The Silver Spell." "Friday, the 13th."
The Pictureland and Vaudctte pictures are the best photoplays, by
the best authors, featuring the most celebrated stars. TAKE THE TIP.
We cater to the discriminating class that cares for quality pictures.

A green little boy
ln a green little Way,
A green little apple
Devoured one day.
And the green little grass
Now tenderly Waves
Qler the green little apple boy's
Green little grave.
George Xvashington, so history
A sportsman true was he:
And yet he never in his life
A fisherman could be.
He never to the brookside Went
To cast the bait or Hy,
He lacked the anglerls chiefest gift
He could never tell a lie.
