By Miss Ernestine Stokey. mHE graduating class of June, 19l7. of the Bryan Street High School is in no wise different, probably, from countless such classes that have gone before. XVe are just the ordinary human beings with our hopes and aims, and these two qualities have been the guiding star of every member of our class during the time embraced in the periods of freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, and of all the lessons we have learned that of the value of hopes and aims will be the one that will remain with us longest. It is in hope that we undertake anything, and only this can sustain us to the point of accomplishment, We found ourselves relying on' it the very first day that we entered on our high school career. We hoped the students that had so long been associated with the old school would receive us kindly We hoped that we would be able to win the favor of our teachers. We hoped would always be able to make a creditable showing. On this hope was eonc' ed our aim, for in the event that the first two of these premises were met, we ' ovenanted with our- selves to see that the last one was fulfilled. XVith few exceptions, we have kept the faith plighted to ourselves, and those who have seen flt to withdraw from the Class and enter other channels, have been the losers, and not those of the Class who have remained to complete the course. Steadfastness has been the unwritten motto of the classfas witness our deeds. Thru the first year we were ably officered, being headed by Russell Smith as President, Thomas Scott as Viee-President, and Miss Feliea Baron as Secretary- Treasurer. Every member was loyal to this corps of officers and a firm foundation of the same loyal cooperation for the second years work was then laid. For the second year Thomas Scott was made President, Frederick P. Hagerman Vice- President and Miss Kathryn Brown was chosen Seeretary-Treasurer. They carried on the work of their predecessors in a highly creditable manner. Then came the junior year. And to guide the class Richard W'alraven was made president, Johns ston Crawford was made Viee-president and Miss Imogene Stanley was chosen as secretary-treasurer. DALHI ANNUAL As the class of June, 1917, had played host to the class of 1916 and had given them a charming dance at the Oak Cliff Pavilion last year, the class which is to graduate in 1918 emulated our example. They arOse grandly to the occasion and entertained the 1917 class with a most delightful dance at the Lakewood Country Club this year. It was complete in every way and there was not a member pres- ent but gave praise in no unstinted measure to the younger students. In this, the fourth school year, the class has been no less fortunate in its selec- tion of ofheers. With a staff of officers such as was chosen at the first meeting of the year we knew that there could be no such thing as fail. The following were elected: Henry Jacoby, president; Joe Spence, Viee-president; Miss Maurine Hal- sell. secretary-treasurer; Miss Imogene Stanley, class prophet; Miss Ernestine Stokey, Class historian. Stimulated by the examples of our leaders, we felt deter- mined to do everything well. No matter what the undertaking. we have never had any idea of not making a success of it, and we Challenge anyone to point out a single instance wherein we have failed to carry out our determination. Perhaps we have not always reaeht our ideals, but like Peter the Great, Hour defeats have taught us how to succeedfy and every attempt has been an improvement 0n the last. The spirit of our class has been emphasized in every line of work attempted. ttOnward" has been our motto. Not talked of, not written' about, but as a silent covenant with ourselves to make the year 1917 famous for its class, and as the self covenant is the only one that really counts, it is due to the silent, determined effort that we have been able to make our pledge good. We have lost some members to the Forest Avenue High School, some to the business world and some to the world of matrimony, but enough of the old personnel is left to give us a decided class distinction. and we feel a personal pride in our class. The spirit of harmony and concerted action was never more rife among us than it is this year. There is another thing that verifies our claim to doing things well, and for being, supreme, and that is the beauty of our Class. Miss Maurine Halsell not only has distinguisht herself as our Secretary-Treasurer, but she has shed still greater luster on the 1917 class by winning the pennant of beautyenot of our class aloneebut of the entire studel11 body of the Bryan Street High School. This is no mean honor, when you consider charm of real beauty so many of our girls can lay claim to. W'e have had thy s to try us, but they were good for us. lf we were never to have anything but sunshine, think you we would really appreciate the bright, beaue tiful days of our fair land? I am convinced that we would not. But the trying things have always been evenly balanced by the good things. lVe have had splendid teachers and they have splendidly cooperated with us. We have found real, loyal friends among our schoolmates and they will enrich the years that are to come, when the larger duties of men and women are upon us, just as they have the time we have spent in this eshool, for many are the life-long friends our class have brought into existence. I believe that every one will agree with me on these two pointse-the pleasant and the unpleasant, referred to in the beginning of this paragraph-f0r not one member of our class' but that is big enough and broad enough to recognize that the truth was there stated. When lifels real battles are before us, what we have learned here in our revered and honored high school 'will be the beacon, to guide and Cheer us on thru every undertaking, just as this wisdom, daily acquired, has sustained us thru the four eventful years just closed.

I was in that southern metropolis, Dallas, last week for the first time in many years. The short Visit brought back the dim and distant past, and tender memories. While feeling so sweetly reminiscent I dropt in Mr. Carnegids and dug up a twenty-five year old 1917 Dalhi Annual tmine long ago having past into the Land of Things That XVereJ .I looked at all the faces of my former Classmates and wasted an hour or so in trying to place each in the maze of this wicked world. And therefore my foregoing remark on the smallness of the globe, for .l have run across a very large majority of those young hopefuls. And I must say that 1' think we had a class to be proud of, being fairly well represented in all the illustrious paths of life. Henry Jacoby was Class president, you remember. XVell, Henry just kept on being president of something or other; he inherited a lot of money and turned about to he a philanthropist and just now he is president of the Society for the Relief of Biteless Bugs. They say his speeches in behalf of this society are posi- tively heart-remlin'g. t 'Jlribble Loper is now comedian in the New Feature. He has a great shows the Ziegfeld Follies have not a thing on it. And speaking of Ziegfeld, I was rather surprised last year to see Ruby Davis and her blond tresses shining brightly in Ziegfeldls Midnight Frolic. I saw recently another show with one of our bright lights in it, too. John Payne is touring the country as female impersonator with a Hawaiian troupe. He does the hula very aggravatingly. Marshall Barnett is just what I thot he would beia deacon. wallow, Texas, where he is the hope of all the good sisters. He lives in Hoge The Senior Class ProphecyeContinued. Helen Peak is doing a noble work. She has a psycho-eramologieal school in Boston for children from four to fourteen years, where she attempts to train their minds and tune their souls. She wears Grecian robes and a psyche, and teaches the little things Virgil. On the walls are such ennobling mottoes as ttDo at least one good deed every five minutes." Adelene MeNab and Ernestine Stokey are suffragettes. They did more than any- one else in the state of Texas to secure votes for women, being able to say four poly- syllabie words to any other persons one monosyllabic. They are both stump speak- ers now. Carl Scudder and Lucile Robinson are dancers for the Hil-top Prices Hotel in New York, where they are a big hit. Joe Buckingham is the editor of a prosperous journal in Mesquiteethe nDaily Prevarieator? Charles West has a chicken farm out West that he is very much wrapt up in. I understand that Marcus VVarlick is trying to buy a half-interest. Dick Abernathy, better known as Richard, blossomed out as a composer whose music is much in .demand. His latest hit is entitled "What Makes The Soup Grow Cold Tonight?" Lucy VVagstaIf was the orign'al old maid of our Class. She has a cat farm in Dallas; I visited her when I was there. We had a lovely time playing with the kittens. The last time I was in Chicago I saw Esther Kieschnick. She sings illustrat- ed songs in a moving-pieture palace there. She has a very sentimental voice. Joe Spence still lives in Dallas and is still Hliterary. Joe writes scenarios. He writes 449 every month and has 449 returned every month. He told me when I saw him that he was working on a thriller: HFearless Mary, the Piano Mover? Annie Kate VVeatherfor'd Chose a very original vocation. She joined the Unit- ed States Navy. I hear she is very capable IImiddy? And Madeleine Bedlow. Surely you know about Madeleine being a movie vam- pire? She is with the Feeble Minded Players Company. I always thot the mov- ies would get her. And there is a detective, toosVValter Van Wart. He is a graduate of the Shoot- ing Star Correspondence School of Detecting, and has two hundred disguises. People know him better than' ever when he is disguised. I saw Tom Clark in New York last summer. He is a tailors model there, wearing very exclusive clothes. He wears a monocle and IIV-e heard that he has started an ankle-wateh fad for men. His friend, J Henry Ball, is in New York, too. I noticed in the paper that Ball is going to fight G. U. Stiff for the heavyweight title of the world in' the near future. I didnt think Henry would be a prize-hghter, but you never can tell. Douglas Legg married an aviator and she makes frequent trips with him. Well, Douglas was usually up in a cloud about something. Martha Baskett married a long-haired actor, who was the leading man for the Idiotic Stock Company, and she is now producing his plays. Our lady of Charity turned out to be Ruth Tenison. She is very much interested in charitable organizations. She always looks at them thru a lorgnette and handles them with kid gloves, however. Well, despite his affair with Miss Slaughter, William Hogue married Elinor VVashburn' and they fnake a splendid team. She writes poetry and he illustrates it. The DALEI ANNUEL' The Senior Class Prophecwaontinued. last one I read was llSammy's Stolen Striped Suck." It was a beautiful thing, writ- ten in the Spleneerian stanza. Coleman Jones is now high in the business world. He manufactures Plumberis Plug Chewing tobacco. I hear he is getting tremendously rieh'off of it. Maurine Halsell was, the last time I heard of her, posing for the wrappers 0n Breathasweeta Chewing Gum. They are very attractive looking: green picture on a red background with yellow lettering around it. I am not sure what became of Lois Carlisle, but I hear she is teaching the Aztec language to the Chinese. Lawrence Cooper and Joe Gunn make a Mutt and Jeff team, which is proving pop- ular. And that reminds me! I saw Melissa Castle and Irene Cullum in an act called mllhe Long String Bean and the Little Round Ballf, It is very clever. They both wear futurist costumes. Sloan Blair has not decided to do anything yet. Give him ten more years and maybe he will have some idea what he wants to do, anyway. Doris McCommas married one Of her Cadets, I forget which; she had so many dangling around. Minnie Musgrave is a business woman. She is head of the National Inspectors of Carpet Sweepers, branch in Dallas. . When I was in Kansas City, Russel Smith came there with a circus. He is the India Rubber man with the show. He is even fatter than he was at school. Bryan Kay teaches the art of tattooing there. I have not seen him but they say he can' make you look like a Chinese puzzle. A mutual friend tells me that XVillie Mae Chick is still striving after deelamation prizes. She is to speak on HThe Biological Effect of a Mocking Birdys Eyebrows" in Hillsboro next week, I learn. DO you remember john Moon's curly hair? XVell, I rather suspect the cause of those curls now. He is manufacturing a preparation guaranteed to give the perman- ent wave to any hair that grows even camel hair. Ruth Harned turned out to be an automobile racer. She is the most daredevil woman in the game today. Well, Ruth always had such a racy disposition. She writes me that she is madly in love with Oldfield Barney, king of the race track. They surely will make a fast team if wedded. John Lane Henry poses for statues of Grecian heroes. He wears a tunic and they actually pay him for doing it. Daniel Gessell is a hypn'otist. I have not seen him, but everyone says that he is irresistible. that when he fastens his impressive eyes on you that you sink right under his spell. Ruby Hughes and Clara Kramolis are both members OF Fort Worth fpoliee force. They were the hrst policewomen in Texas. John MeCraw has turned his attention to writing histories. He is at work now on uThe History of the Fall of Lapdogs." It is to be publisht in six volumes. Mae Rene Flanary is traveling saleswoman .for the Slippery Soap people. Her elocution stands her in good steadishe fervently harangues her listener into buying soap. All the rest of my acquaintances plunged'into the sea of matrimony, and I have lost track of many of them. There was Lena Cohan, Lottie Watts, Douglas Forbes, Stuart Burke, Inez Canaday, Harry Wheat and others. I am sure there must have been more in my graduating class whom I was unfortu- nate enough to he unaequainted with. XVell, life is full of regrets. wI ART THREE Pr ' ,Casz.l 1: I Jewel Beal f; .

President Richard Freeman, YieeuPi'esitls-nl O the long list of sophomore Classes which this school has witnessed was added another at the beginning of this school year. This class held its first meeting 011 October 2. 1910, and elected the following officers: Ones Ross, President; Richard Freeman, Vic-e-President: Miss Bonnye Belle Burns, Secretary; Miss Carlyle Canaday. Treasurer. Many of the sophomore boys have gone out for football and baseball, and many of the girls are members of the physical training classes of the school. Others Of the leading organizations of the school have sophomores as active members in their midst. The sophomores held their annual dance on April 20, at the Lake Cliff Pavilion. The dance vas a great success, due to the cooperation of all the classes. On the whole, the sophomores haVe shown good Class spirit thruout the year and from the present prospects they will form an excellent junior class next year. The Freshman Class m that overHowed with enthusiasm. It was at this meeting that the officers of. the Class were elected as follows: John Melton, President; Yancey Russell, Viee-President; Miss Grace Sprau, Secretary; Miss Marnie Lee Copeland, Historian. This class has achieved more in the line of school spirit than any other fresh- man class of past history. Along the social line the class has not achieved much owing to the fact that its members have spent most of their time in class work. In each student activity the class has been well represented and has showed an interest in the school that has not been excelled even by upper classmen. In the studies the class, as a unit, has done excellent work.' Many of the students of the class have already won for themselves the name of hstar pupils." 1n the Cadet Corps especially has the work of the class shown itself. v.?.AeVVVTr- r 7-wa .

The Dalhi Beauty Contest, inaugurated and sponsored by the Dalhi Journal, had proved an immense success, in the opinion of those in charge. The contest was opened on October 13, 1916 by the Dalhi Journal, and the ofheial ballot appeared in the regular editions of that magazine. The purpose of the contest, as defined by the management, was to determine who, in the opinion of the students of the school, was the most beautiful girl in their midst. As the contest progressed an intense interest developt. It was not until a few weeks before the contest closed that any group of girls could be designated as the one from which a winner would be selected. But by February 27, 1917, those leading in the contest at that time had received such an enormous number of votes in' their favor that it was evident that none other than one of them could win the contest. Time Hew rapidly, and soon the contest closed, as everything except drug stores inevitably must. And on the day before the presentation of the sixth annual Dallas High School Minstrels the polls closed, and the next morning the count was made. The name of the winner was kept secret until that night, however, when the young lady who had been chosen by a plurality of the voters was introduced to a capacity audience at the ministrel performance. V Miss Maurine Halsell was the winner of the contest, and her appearance at the minstrel show brought an ovation from the audience. Miss Halsell is secretary of the graduating class of June, 1917, and one of the most popular personages in the school this year. Miss Lucile Smith ran a close second, being defeated by only eight votes. To the managers of the contest is due in large measure its admitted success. Director of the contest was Noden Taylor, whi1e Wendel Spence acted as publicity manager. The vote in the contest, as tabulated with care at the time the contest closed, and as double-ehecked later, follows: Miss Maurine Halsell ............................................................... 973 Miss Lucile Smith 965 Miss Cleo Slaughter .............. A scattering vote'for forty-one other girls of the school brought the total vote to 2594. . - w x b ..o 33W 0 N .' 1??!1'3v i . 15:3 :3 MISS MAURINE HALSELL, Winner of the Dalhi Beauty Contest.

MISS CLEO SLAL'G HTERV ggiw i NMEE ttThe Supreme Test of the Nation Has Come- We Must All Speak, Act and Serve Togetherll Woodrow Wilson, President of the United States, issued a personal appeal to the citizens of the United States on Monday morning, April 16, 1917. In compliance with the request of the President to publish it everywhere, we are printing it at this time. TEXT OF THE PRESIDENTS APPEAL. ttMy Fellow-Countrymen: The entrance of our beloved country into the grim and terrible war for democracy and human rights creates so many problems of national life and action which call for immediate consideration and settlement that I hope you will permit me to address to you a few words of earnest counsel and appeal regarding them. HWe are rapidly putting our navy upon an effective war footing and are about to create and equip a great army, but these are the simplest parts of the great task to whitn we have addrest ourselves. There is not a single selfish element, so far as I can see, in' the cause we are fighting for. We are fighting for what we be- lieve and wish to be the rights of mankind and for the future peace and security of the world. To do this great thing worthily and successfully, we must devote our- selves to the service without regard to profit or material advantage and with an energy and intelligence that will rise to the level of the enterprise itself. We must realize to the full how great the task is and how many things, how many kinds and elements of capacity and service and self-saerifiee it involves. "These then are the things we must do and do well, besides fighting, the things without which mere fighting would be fruitless: llVVe must supply not only abundant food for ourselves, our armies and our sea- men, but also for a large part of the nations with whom we now have made com- mon cause. WE MUST SUPPLY SHIPS. nNVe must supply ships by the hundreds out of our shipyards to carry to the other side of the sea, submarines or no submarines, what will every day be needed there and abundant materials out of our fields and our mines and our factories with which, not only to clothe and equip our own forces on land and sea, but also to clothe and support our people for whom the gallant fellows under arms can no longer work, to help elothe and equip the armies with Which we are cooperating in Europe, and to keep the looms and manufacturers in raw materials, coal to keep the tires going in ships at sea, and in the furnaces of hundreds of factories across the sea; steel out of which to make arms and ammunition both here and there; rails for worn-out railways back of the fighting forces; locomotives rolling stock to take the place of those every day going to pieces; mules, horses, cattle for labor and military service; everything with which the people of England and France and Italy and Russia have usually supplied themselves, but can not now afford the men, materials or the machinery to make. lllt is evident to every thinking man" that our industries must be made more pro- lilie and more efficient than ever and they must be more economically managed and better adapted to the particular requirements of our task than they have been; and what I want to say is that the women who devote their thot and their energy to these things will be serving the country and conducting the Fight for peace and freedom just as truly and just as efheiently as the men on the battlefield or in the trenches. The industrial forces of the country, men and women' alike, will be of a President Wilsonis Appeathontinued. great national, a great international, service army 21 notable and honored host en- gaged in the service of the Nation and the world, the efheient friends and saviors of free men everywhere. AN APPEAL TO THE FARMERS. HI take the liberty, therefore, of addressing this word to the farmers of the country and to all who work on the farms: HThe supreme need of our own Nation and of the nations with which we are co- ouerating is an abundance of supplies, and especially of foodstuffs. XVithout abun- dant food, alike for the armies and the peoples now at war, the whole great enter- 1.:rise upon which we have embarked will lireak down and fail. The worlds food ieserx'es are low. HNot only during the present emergency, but for some time after peace shall have come, both our own people and a large proportion of the people of Europe must rely upon the harvests in America. Upon the farmers of this country, there- fore, in large measure, rests the fate of the war and the fate of the nations. lll particularly appeal to the farmers of the South to plant abundant foodstuFfs, as well as cotton. They can show their patriotism in no better or more convincing way than by resisting the great temptation of the present price of cotton and help- ing to feed the Nation and the peoples lighting for their liberty and our own. The variety of their crops will be the Visible measure of their comprehension of their national duty. uThe Government Of the United States and the Governments of the several States stand ready to cooperate. They will do everything possible to assist farm- ers; in securing an adequate supply of seed, an adequate force of laborers when they are most needed at harvest time, and the means of expediting shipments of fertilizers and farm machinery, as well as of the crops themselves when harvested. The course of trade shall be as unhampered as it is possible to make it and there will be no unwarranted monopolization of the Nationys food supply by those who handle it on its way to the consumer. This is our opportunity to demonstrate the efhcieney of a great democracy and we shall not fall. short of it. A SERVICE FOR THE MIDDLEMEN. UThis, let me say to the middlemen of every sort, whether they are handling our foodstuffs or our raw materials for manufacture or the products of our mills and factories: HThe eyes of the country will be especially upon you. This is your opportunity for signal service. The country expects you to forego unusual profits, to organize and expedite shipments of supplies of eVery kind, but especially of food, with an eye to the Service you are rendering and in the spirit of those who enlist in the ranks, for their people, not for themselres. I shall confidently expect you to deserve and win the confidence of the people of every sort and station. HTo the men who run railways of the country, whether they be managers or operative employes, let me say that the railways are the arteries of the Nationls life and in them rests the immense problem of seeing that these arteries suffer 110 obstruction of any kind. . HTo the merchant, let me suggest the motto: lSmall profits and quick salesf and to the shipbuilder, the thot that the life of the war depends on him. The L.. DKEHE AN President Wilson's Appealeontinued. lootl and war supplies must he carried acrosx the seas, no matter how many ships are sent to the bottom. Mlle the miner, let me say that he stands where the farmer does: The work of the world waits on him. If he slacks or failsy armies and statesmen are helnl-ess. He also is enlisted in the great service army. mllhe manufacturer does not need to be told, I hope, that the Nation looks to him to speed and perfect everything he can, and I only want to tell them that their services is adequately intllspensable and is counted on by every man who loves the country and its liberties. SUGGESTION TO THE HOUSEWIVES. HLet me suggest also that every one who creates or cultivates a garden helps and helps greatly to solve the problem of feeding the nations, and that every house- wife who practices strict economy puts herself in the ranks of those who serve the Nation. This is the time for America to correct her unpardonahle fault of wastefulness and extravagance. Hl'n the hope that this statement of the needs of the Nation aml of the world in this hour of supreme crisis may stimulate those to Whom it comes and remind all who need reminder of the solemn duties of a time such as the world has never seen before, I beg that all editors and publishers everywhere will give as prominent publication and as wide a circulation as possible to this appeal. I venture to suggest, also, to all advertising agencies that they would perhaps render a very substantial and timely service to the country if they would give it a widespread repetition. And 1 hope clergymen will not hold the theme of it an unworthy or inappropriate subject of comment and homily from their pulpits. "The supreme test of the Nation has come.

The United States Navy today needs at once at least 2,000 young men between the ages of 18 and 25 to assist the doctors of the Navy in Naval Hospitals and at sea on the vessels of the Navy. The life offers good pay, a variety of work, and an opportunity to study and serve your country. Inquire about enlistment at the nearest Naval Recruiting Station. Ask the postmaster where the nearest Navy Recruiting office is to he found. Go there, talk to the doctor, ask him about the Hospital Corps. From Here and There TO-HIGHY nusti" motlocx own nous: Rm!

Q PART F IVE ODQAWZAT'IOHI 1.5, mew ewwm; The Studentsi Council Marshall Barnett, President The Students' Council of this school year has truly been the pride uf each loyal studentk heart, for, unlike its predecessors. the Council has been' a very active one. Under the able leadership of Marshall D. Bar- nett the Council has been an upholder of the right and a foe to those Who Cheat. Representatives of the senior class in the Council are Miss Doris MeCommas and Joe Spence; of the junior class. Miss hilargaret Farrar and Donald Logan; of the sophomore class, Miss Elizabeth Hay and Leon Hull; 0f the freshman class, Miss Helen Laseowsky and Harold Smith. The Council gained prominence this year by its Fight to prevent cheat- ing on the mid-term examinations in the school. All who were willing to promise not to Cheat made their pledge by wearing a simple white button. For days previous t0 and during the examinations the buttons were evident on the wearing apparel of almost every student, and the result of the strenuous campaign was that only one case of cheating on the examinations was reported. A similar campaign is to be conducted before the beginning of the Final examinations this month, and the success of the work is assured. The A. K. Club HE A. K. Club feels proud to present itself in this annual, witnessing such m a successful ending of a year which had such a doubtful beginning. As the members of the Club assembled at the beginning of the year it looked as if the Forest Avenue High School census roll and the various private educational institu- tions had left few with which to commence the school year 1916-17. But after the Club was organized and had selected new members active work began under the efficient leadership of Miss Pauline VVarner,new1y elected critic. The club decided upon grand opera as the main topic to be taken up and the operas "Faustf! "Madame Butterfly? and ltCarmen," with their respective ebm- posers, have been studied by the club, and enjoyed by all the members. HRObert's Rules of Orderl, has been one of the chief factors in enabling the girls to learn the rules by which the club is governed. The members have taken an active interest in everything the club has attempted and have made the year a most interesting and successful One. . Perhaps it would be of interest to learn something of the social side of the club's work. Look into the faces on the opposite page and see for yourself if they look "all work and no play? Altho work is considered first and above all, play is like- wise not overlooked, as is evidenced at the various initiations held thruout the year. These initiations give much pleasure to the pledges and much consolation to the members. The football feast, which has always been a customary pleasure of the club, was enjoyed by the boys and girls, as well as several members of the faculty. The A. K. dance, given at the Dallas Golf and Country Club, proved to be a delightful occasion, and was thoroly enjoyed by everyone present. The club has had the honor of having the Dalhi Beauty, Miss Maurine Halsell, selected from its ranks. The club is to lose several of its members in the graduating class of June, 1917, but sincerely hopes that, as they climb to greater heights, they will not forget the pleasant associations enjoyed andj'th-e good work aeeomplisht while members of the A. K. Club. The members of the club believe that whatever has been achieved by the club is due to the untirin'g efforts and loyal interest of a most worthy and faithful friend and advisor, Miss Pauline XVarner.

Foremost among the many social activities of the club might be the lllhanksg'iving luncheon given to the Dalhi Journal editorial and business staffs; a Christmas tree enjoyed by the members of the Club; the pageant and Operetta; a musical prO- gram; and the never-to-be-forgotten initiationS. While the members were enjoying all these social pleasures, the object of the club, the study Of recent art, has not been forgotten. At the several meetingS, short talks and discussions have been heard. The club has greatly progressed along this line under the guidance of its critic, Miss Margaret Culbertson. The c00pcration of the members has been splendid, each being willing at all times to perform the duties assigned her. With the proceeds from the play presented by the club a handsome bust of General Stonewall Jackson has been' presented to the school, and a beautiful framed picture to the art room, which is also the club room.

Several students of the German language met on the tenth of the month and, under the supervision of the instructor in that language, C. T. Neu, organized a German club, called Der Schiller Verein. The purpose of the club is to secure for its members a better understanding of the German speech and customs. Officers were chosen and plans were made to combine recre- ation with the seeking of knowledge. The hrSt social meeting of the club was held on the twen'tyififth, and found the membership doubled. Roll call, answered with the names of German cities, taxed the memories of several, but in a very short while all unnaturalness was gone and the club began to work in earnest. The programs of the meetings which followed were varied to stimulate interest. A course of short lectures on Schiller by C. T. Neu was delivered in German. The lectures were Short and clear and were understood by all. German songs were learned and at each meeting a few were practiced. The German words of some American songs were also learned and sung. A picture contest was held, each member writing in German the names of ani- mals, plants and other subjects and objects found in a large picnic scene. The election of officers for the second semester resulted in a reeelection and a determination to increase the Club in size and spirit. From the hrst the society has grown from a few faithful ones to a membership of eighteen. The determi- nation to make the Club a means of knowledge and pleasure has been carried out, and the present members are confident that their work of this year will be success- fully carried out in the years to come.

The purpose Of the club this year has not been to have an extra class in the study Of Spanish, but to study and discuss the life, history, geography and customs of Spain and the Spanish-speaking countries of America. With this point in View varied and interesting programs have been given, features of which were talks, readings and stereoptiean views, and incidentally, spelling matches and Spanish music have been enjoyed by the members of the club.

The to outward appearances she has been rather quiet, within. the club itself much has been aceomphsht, so that next year She may set out with a stronger stride than ever. The membership is full and there has been a splendid attendance at all meetings. Moreover, the enthusiasm in the club is great and with the spirit for work in the members there can be no bounds to'future attainments. Two public debates were scheduled for this year by the club. On March 23, 1917, Robert Payne and Noden Taylor upheld the negative side of the question: HResolved, That land should bear the full burden of taxation? Representatives of the Calhoun Debating Society of Austin, Texas, argued for the afhrmative, and were awarded the decision by a vote of two to one. The second debate was held on March 30, 1917, in the Bryan Street High School auditorium, 011 the question: nResolved, That the principles of the labor unions, as now organized, are sound in theory and deserve the support of public 0pinion."' Phi Kappa was represented by Jesse Walker and Eyler Simpson, who supported the negative. The Rostra Debating Society of the Waco High School upheld the affirmative; 11,8 representatives were Blake Johnson and Monte Owens. VXVith these'activities outside the club and an enthusiastic spirit evidenced within, Phi Kappa has completed a busy and prosperous year.

At different times thruout the year several social events have served to relieve the monotony of regular work.

Early in the autumn' 0f the year the First initiation was held at the home of Miss Frances Kleber, and in the spring the second, with Miss Ruth Bishop as hostess.

Many Speakers of prominence have addrest the club during the year. J. H. Mosely, President Of the Y. M. C. A.; W. B. Scott, Secretary of the Y. M. C. A.; J. H. Hunter, State Secretary of the Y. M. C. A. Pat H. Olson, Dave Hardy, Wm. H. Ball of New York; Dr. J. j Terrill, of Temple, and H. L. Crate, Boys Secretary of the Y. M. C. A., are among the most prominent heard. At every meeting a social stunt of some kind was enjoyed by the members. The High School Club has been instrumental in promoting many movements for uplifting both boys and girls, and the club gave its hearty sup- port to the Anti-cheating Campaign which was carried out so succ-essfullyf The years work was begun at the opening banquet, held October 2. There were many good Speeches and Chas. Turner proved an excellent toastmaster. The following faculty was selected for the year: XV. A. Biggs, Dave Hardy, Pat H. Olson, H. L. Crate, I'Crnest C. Reeves, Major Hooper. The success of the club is due mainly to the interest and earnestness which these men have shown. Joe Spence .. President Thomas Clark ........ Vice-President J. Henry Ban. Secretary-Treasurer DALEE ANNUKL' 15: The Debating Season been made and records broken by the representatives of the literary societies of this school, this year has been a most satisfactory one to those interested in the study of polemical discourse in the Bryan Street High School. Four teams from this school have met representatives of other Cities and have brought fame to this school, altho not in' every case being successful in securing the decision of the judges. One of these teams was from the Zetolothian Debating Club; another represented the Speakers Literary Society in numerous contests; two teams debat- ed with other cities in behalf of the Phi'Kappa Literary Society. With a thot of the mountain of handicaps which blocked our path to success in this field at the beginning of this school year we feel it there is no exaggeration in the statement that no more pleasing record has been made in the history of this school than the attainments of this year 1916-17. The first team mentioned, that of the Zetolothian club, was composed of Miss Willie Mae Chick and Miss Ruby K. Daniel. At Waco this team met with favorable comment, tho not a favorable decision of the judges. Their efforts excelled any- thing ever attempted in this line of work by members of the weaker sex of our school. t The team of the Speakers Literary Society consisted of Gurdon Lockwood and Henry Jacoby. 1t successfully met several out-of-town teams and secured a two to one decision over representatives of the Forest Avenue High School in the pre liminaries to the city debating contest. This team has made an enviable record, and one of which its members may well be proud. One team of the Phi Kappa society, composed of Noden Taylor and Robert Payne, met defeat at the Austin High School, but it was a defeat crowned with Victory, for the Phi Kappa speakers made an impression in the little South Texas town which was not to be affected by the decision of the judges. Never before had that town heard such debaters, its school officials declared. A second team of that society made hardly a less favorable imprint upon those who heard it debate with representatives of the Waco High School. This team, made up of Jesse Walker and Eyler Simpson, secured a tie vote of one to one from the judges. $VERSHADOWING all of those glorious years of the past when records have i ' A - ; afgni , :1: . .96? . .-.. i'pp. ,. 5;. v.2 .395: f p .

Never before in the history of this school had a theatrical production which was directed and managed exclusively by stu- dents of the school been such an unqualihed success. The show began promptly at 8:30 oiclock, and lasted almost three hours. Originality was the striking characteristic of the entire show, and from the time the curtain rose on the hrst scene, which was entitled, nWhere The Chickens Came From? until the appearance of the winner of the Dalhi Beauty Contest as the climax of the performance, the audience gave closest attention; as if it under- stood fully that it was witnessing a minstrel which had never been equalled in local amateur circles. A strong chorus appeared in the hrst act, including thirty of the strongest male voices in the school. The end men for this act were: Clyde Smith, John Moon, Frank Shoup and Robert Payne. Henry Jacoby acted as interlocutor. Vocal solos were rendered by T. J. Cockreli, Thomas B. Scott, Bert Ashby, Harold Clark, Herbert Chandler, and Clyde Smith. Featured in the special acts which followed were Robert MeCord, Harold Smith, Enrique Smith and Dave Hodges. It was the last act, however, which wrote this sixth annual minstrel show on the records of the school as the best production ever witnessed. Jokesters appearing in this act were John Mayo and Lee Boyd. Banjo and guitar specialties were introduced by M. A. DeVitis and Tom Moore. The Monona Quartettve, composed of Maurice Peterman, E. G. Fleming, VVall-er Harna- day and Tyson Payne, proved one of the biggest hits of the performance. The most attractive bit of the. entire production came with the introduction by Richard Abernathy of the winner of the Dalhi Beauty Contest, Miss Maurine Halsell, who met with a tremendous ovation. There could have been little doubt in the minds of those who saw her, that Miss Halsell was indeed the most beautiful girl in the Bryan Street High School. The minstrel staff, which was largely responsible for the success of the show, was as follows: Director Richard Abernathy Business Manager Marshall Barnett Assistants ......................................................... Noden Taylor, VVen'del Spence Treasurer Norman R. Crozier Publicity Manager ........ Joe Buckingham Assistant J. Henry Ball Property Manager ..........................................................

Girls of the school and the boys of the cadet corps participated in the parade, while numberless autos, furnisht by the students and teachers, were in line. Marshall Barnelt, Business Mgr.

Christmas Pageant Is Unique Production N Friday, December 22, The Athletic Association of the Bryan Street High School entertained the members of the school with a flve-part pageant play, entitled uThe Night Before Christmasf under the personal supervision of George Medders. The stage setting was very appropriate and embodied thruout the he acts the spirit of Christmas. Much credit for the pageant should go to Mr. M'edders, for it was he who originated it and made certain its success. From the time that the curtain went up on the morning scene, With the augmented chorus singing tljoy to The VVorldfl until Santa Claus bade a Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night, the closest atten- tion was paid by an appreciative audience. The participants acted well their various parts and did credit to themselves and t0 the school.

Each Character was excep- tionally well portrayed with excellence and all tended to make a play that would long be remembered by the hearers. Ecah scene was enacted with the swiftness and excellence of professional performers. The concluding division of the entertainment, tlA Garden of Singing Flowers? was a series of songs sung by each of the characters. This was well rendered. The Art Club has presented to the school a bust of the immortal "Stonewallll Jackson, purchased With the proceeds of the performance. .f f Twelfth Night, On the night of March 31, 1917, The Little Theater, a dramatic club of the Bryan Street High School, presented in the school auditorium Skakepeards famous comedy, nTwelfth Night? as the club,s second annual offering. An appreciative audience viewed the performance, and termed it a huge success. The play is considered the most stupend- ous production ever presented by a high school club of this city. Each individual acted his part with unusual ability, and the work of George Medders, director of the play, was thoro and prohcient.

The industrial forces of the empire had always been under the control of the German government, but never before the last six months had such a systematic and efficient organization of the forces so increased their actual worth to the hghting strength of the German empire as had Luden'dorff's now famous ttChain Of Iron" edict. The immediate effect of the unexpected death of Kaiser Wilhelm, the idol of his people, and the accession to the throne of Karl had been to dampen the ardor of the civilian population, and to rob the army of its sole inspiration. But it had soon become evident that Carl, rather than giving the empire a mild rule, had, by becoming a tool of the shrewd and ambitious Ludendorft, permitted a new standard of strict, unfaltering rule to be set. In addition to this, the all-powierful ruler of the high seas, the German sub- marine, had terrorized commerce to the extent that the Allies were in dire want of food and ammunition. and England had actually withdrawn men from the first line trenches to put to work in munition plants at home. Further, Japan had' now withdrawn from the Entente Allies all manner of support, and there was every in'di- cation that that power would soon take an active part on the side of the central empires. It was not beyond the coneeptiom of Germany that Japan might, by threats or other familiar methods, persu'tde China to join' With the Prussian forces. On the other hand, Amerieals failure to prove of valuable assistance to the allied nations had made pessimism popular in both England and France. And in RussiarvGod pity the people of that country. It had seemed that three months was the longest period that a stable government could exist in that land. After the Czar had been dethroned, or rather had abdicated, democracies, monarch- ies, plutocraeies, had all followed one after the other in most rapid succession. It had been said that the people of Russia could not be pleased, and there was indica- tion that such was the ease in the series of revolutions which had handicapped Russia's participation in this great struggle. All in all, there was every reason to hope that Germany could yet prove herself the indomitable power that her people believed her to be. And their optimism itself an asset to industry. This was the condition when the president, on' the third day after the beginning of the new session of Congress, had appeared in person before that body and urged the immediate enactment of the compulsory bill which provided that all able-bodied men between the ages of twenty-one and thirtyrone should, after short period of training, spend one year of actual Fighting on the seas or on Europeis fields. The bill was a radical one, and would place guns upon the shoulders of thousands of Americas men, but Congress, for once, was equal to the emergency, and with but brief discussion of the bill passed it by an over-whelming vote. W'ithin twenty-four hours after the bill passed the Congress announcement was made that the president would sign it at once, men of all Classes who would be affected by the terms of the bill hurried to recruit, that they should not be forced by law to do so. And it was necessary that they hurry, for by the terms of the bill it would become a law Within ten weeks after it received the signature of the presi- dent. But down here, in our own city, there was one who hung back, who obstinately "w XWS xs The Survival of the UnhteContinued. refrained from an expression for or against the measure, but who, nevertheless, did not enlist. This certain person, Robert Hennon, was an able youth, who, tho not two dozen years of age, was one of those who were called to arms by the recently passed compulsory service measure. If there was a man in the state physically capable of standing the burdensome strain of a year 0111' the battlefield, surely such a one was Robert Hennon. Seriously did his friends discuss his evident apathy for the fate of his country, for they had always known him as a wide--awake person, of sufficient honor and intelli- gence to realize the duty he felt to his country. Some hinted that his fathers hate 0f king-rule was inherent in' him, and that he considered this war a foundling of the regal lords of Europe, and for that reason had steadfastly opposed entering it. Few weeks passed after the signing of the bill by the president before agents of the government began on the streets of even Texas cities the task of seeking those who might be evading the terms of the law. Day after day these harbingers of an odious service scoured the thorofares of Dallas, their piercing glance halting any who might attempt to escape them. Nothing less than an exemption certificate from a government official excused a man' who might in the opinion of the unem- barrassed agent be within the age limit of the new law. For a few days after the commencement of the activities of the agents Robert Hennon was not stopt on his journey to and from his ofhee by an agent, but he was not to be spared by fate. In' due time he was questioned by an agent, and, upon his failure to produce exemption papers, was hauled into a nearby courtroom. Examination showed Hen- non physically Flt for service, and tteonseientious objections" were of no avail. Within f1ve days time he was beginning his course of training at the recently opened station on the outskirts of XVaeo. Months spent there fmally instilled into the mind of Hennon enough military knowledge to justify his being sent abroad. He had chosen the army as the lesser of two evils, and it was therefore with a troop of infantry that he embarked for the battlehelds of the East. For the first few months after her entrance into the war America had stead- fastly refused to send her men to foreign soil, in pursuance of her policy of de- fense rather than aggression. But the steady gains upon the part of Germany over the allied forces had forced America to join hands with the latter in an' effort to stop the onrush 0f the Prussian hordes. Thus Hennons troop was not the hrst to cross from America to oppose Ger- many. As a matter of history, thousands had preceded them, had furnisht food for ravenous cannon, and lay even then in hastily constructed graves. More of these graves awaited the men of Hennonis troop, and fate spared them a watery burial, giving them safe voyage to France. XVithin the course of a week after Hennon' landed on French soil he participated in actual hghting. His fellow-soldiers fell all around him, the shells burst in his very ears. Tears Hooded from his eyes as his face met an atmosphere heavy laden with smoke. A part of the encounter was fought in melting snow. The' crushed ice with which Hennon tilled his mouth at every opportunity seemed to offer no relief to his parched and burning throat. To him it was sickening, nauseating. He thot 0f escapeibut where was he to go? To the rear? He laughed at the absurd- ity of his own idea. Onward? To be pierced by a hundred bullets of blown to bits by an exploding shell! To the right or left? Even to surmount the bodies The Survival of the UnfiteContinued. 0f the dead around him was but to face an officer who would not permit his escape. He considered suicide, but was frightened at the thot of the cold pistol against his . head. ? At last came the close of the day, but it brought no hope of peace to Robert. fit The Americans were hard prest, and double sentry was to be establisht as protec- y ,; tion against a possible night attack. To bring men forward from the supply base ,"n was not considered practicable, and it was necessary, therefore, that First line men, .3: even those who had been fighting thruout the day, be called upon. As fate would i have it, Hennon was summoned for this odious task. Physically exhausted, he be- gan his march. A very few minutes passed before Hennon had determined to make , a dash for the camp of the Germans, who, he had heard, would ship him at once to a the interior. Of course, in due time, he would be exchanged, but it was possible that his time of service would be ended by then, so that he might return to America. ? Escape towards the German lines would not be difficult, Robert told himself, if he could but pass this smallest hill, and cross the stream beyond it, for the American sentry lines did not extend past the frozen stream. He threw down his gun. No doubt, he told himself, they would think him killed by the enemy, and for self- a defense he had his revolver. The voyage around the hill was made without a sentry encountered, and by carefully picking his steps across the fast melting ice of the nearby stream, Hennon' was soon safe on his way to the lines of the enemy. As he emerged from the miniature forest which stood near the stream, he was astounded by the sight of a German infantryman, whose uniform Hen'non could by Clearly discern in the bright moonlight, as he came forward at a brisk walk, directly fa in the path of Hennon. The latter feared to draw his revolver. as sight of it in' ' the hand of an American soldier would surely draw the strangers fire. Hennon at once decided that the only safe thing to do would be to indicate his peaceful intentions. With this in YiCVV he drew from his trousers pocket a large white kerchief which he waived above his head. Altho the German could see the piece of cloth and presumably appreciated its significance, he levelled a small automatic pistol of the latest American type, , which he had subsequently drawn from his greatcoat, directly at Hennon, and eon- 3 tintued his advance. When within easy speaking distance of Robert he startled the I latter with these words, enunciated clearly in English: llThere is a German picket within one hundred yards on the outskirts of the woods I have just left. Why do you risk your life by going in that direction?" ttBut it is to your people that 1 am going. I had expected to find a German nearer here than that W t ltNofl said the stranger, bit is my people from whom you are runninglll The statement was a blow to Hennon. Then this man who faced him was an American. But, whyaoh, a spy. It was clear to him now. llXVhy do you run from your duty? speaking to him. HD011lt you know that desertion means death Did he? Of course he did. XVhy had he not shot this fellow when he hrst saw him? What a fool he had been to let this man deliberately walk up to him and catch him in the act of desertion'. Of course it would mean death. But an inex- pressive nod was his only indication that he realized his approaching fate. But the stranger was talking. Hennon came back to earth; the man was ?yy The Survival of the UnfiteContinued. ttI know you, Hennon," he was saying. ttAnid I know your record 218 a rich man's son down in Texas. I know that if you went on to the German lines that their third degree methods of obtaining information would mean your death. I know that for you to return to the American lines would also mean your death. HI know further that your father, incased in his gold and line linens, would give me half his enormous fortune for your release. But I refuse. If there is any creature more deserving of seorn than a snake it is a human being with a streak of yellow in him. HIn you there is a streak of cowardice as wide as the rainbow.

You and I go forward and win this first trench from the l-Iuns, or else I go to the American lines with you marching three feet ahead of this automatic? "Illl gof, said H-ennon, simply nodding toward the enemy trench. HXVelll get the trench or a coffin each? They started towards the German lines at a rapid rate. As they proceeded, the stranger talked. ttFrederick Dennis, San Antonio," he flrst said. A full sentence seemed unneces- sary. lttierman parents, but American born. I volunteered as a spy because I spoke their language. When I met you I was on my way to camp to obtain two men to help me get this little trench. I know its weak spot. XVe should have another, but you and I will try. 'llhru some oversight they have failed to protect this little line, which is in itself a key to the whole territory.U HVVhatt do I do? Hennon interrupted. HVVh-en we come to this clump of bushes you turn to the right. Go around the first hill, and to the west. Illl leave it to your physical ability to kill the German who holds the bomb supplies of the trench. Then you begin your work. Throw little ones straight into ,em. Do not throw up or the men in the trenches behind P will suspect. I'll be at the other end, partly to the rear. I will pick off any that are lucky enough to escape." XVith a courage suddenly born within him, Hennon' followed the instructions of the spy. The plan worked successfully, and without the knowledge of the German troops further to the rear, their first trench beeame the property of Hennon and the spy, whom H-ennon had recognized by the name given as one whose reputation had become suddenly worldwide as the result of his achievements in this war. But no time was spent in the recital of Dennis accomplishments. On the eon- trary, he sent Hennon back to the American lines with news of the capture, proma ising to use his influence later to save Hennon from trouble. It was some ten months after the incident recited occurred that Lieutenant Robert Hennon, Texas Infantry, Army Of the United States of America, retired, ' .3 returned to the city of Dallas. Some hfty friends met him upon his arrival, for l his fame had spread, and he and Dennis had been heralded as the men who captured a trench tlunassisted." Their welcome was Whole hearted, and a balm to Hennone conscience. America, with the aid of her European and Latin American allies, had won the fight for humanity and democracy, and Robert Hennon knew that he had done his bit. v MK X 9; i: .- $xi g? x ,3.- ; V4:..:z;3'VJ.ra-3t k,1;74i x , in 2K; ANN?" ngx?;wtfx;;TX?

At times the train barely moved as it rounded a curve in circ- ling around a mountain peak. At the occasional stops at the small towns which dot the country sturdy westerners moved out from the station, to receive a passenger or a bag of mail. Even when the midnight hour had been passed each station furnisht its quota of onlookers, all of whom seemed on the alert, as if anxious for excitement. Thru it all Herbert Staunton lay awake in his birth on the trans-continental traveler. Sleep seemed to him impossible. He rolled and tumbled in his berth; he closed his eyes and held his eyelids with his hands, but still the quiescent unconv sciousness he so much desired was for Staunton the unattainable. He thot of the past and prayed fervently for the future. He imagined the improbable and impos- sible, neither his brain nor his body saw rest. The thot which was uppermost in his disturbed mind repeated itself despite all his efforts to forget. He had been' rejected, his brain repeated, and dizzied him with its repetition. She had been the only girl he had ever cared for, and they had been keeping company with each other for some time. Altho nothing dehnite had ever been said, it had seemed to be a mutually understood agreement that they were to be married. At least this had been the conviction of Herbert. And when he thot that he was able to support a wife and when he deemed it wise, Staunton asked her the one great question. That, however, was the beginning of the end for him. Of course, she was no doubt very sorry, as she had said, and she hoped to remain his true friend, but what good did that do? It was like cold water in' his face, for it only awakened him to the fact that she could never care for him. Staunton groaned aloud as he recalled that last meeting. All the world had seemed black and everything had gone wrong. Try as he might he could not now rid himself of her image or forget her words. Finally he was seized with des- pair; what was the use to try to forget? Quite naturally he turned to suicidcebut, no, he could not do that; for only a coward kills himself and only a quitter gives up. He was again reminded of the thot that he had tried to place foremost in his mind, the old quotation: HGo West, my boy." Herbert did not know who was the author of that clause, but it had occurred to him several days ago, and he was but following the advice of the unknown seer. He was determined that he should go West, and he hoped that he could forgive and forget. He would begin life anew. After spending a restless night in the sleeper, duly termed by him the Hsleep- less," Staunton ate an unrelisht breakfast in the dining car and spent a miserable eight hours before the train brought him to his destination; he carefully avoided an invitation to dinner. It was the Village of Sunnert which was the destination to which the train had brought him. A so-called hotel, a general store tincluding a window labeled post- ofhcel and a blacksmith shop comprised the business district of the municipality, and the residence section was hardly better populated. Herbert was an absolute stranger in an' unknown country, but he bore letters of introduction and of recom- mendation t0 ranch owners who lived a short distance from Sunnert. He decided mHE train sped on its westward course. The click of the rails was only inter- VVVVVVVV EAAAAAAA 71 EQEEH ANNUELL, The Irresistible RaideriContinued. s' o, . to stay at the hotel over night and go in search of a permanent place on a ranch on the following day. His sleep that night was sound, because of the thoro ex- haustion of both his mind and body. Early the next morning he looked about for means by which to reach the ranch home of R. K. Kenneday, to whom he had been referred. He was successful in' hiring a man to drive him to the ranch in his vehicle. Jpon reaching the place he went immediately to the ranch home and, finding Kenneday there, presented his letters of introduction to the latter. "Herbert Staunton is my name, Mr. Kenneday. I have here a letter from H. G. Millard which states that on account of my broken down condition he, as well as myself, would deeply appreciate it if you would permit me to stay here and work on the ranch? llIf Harry Millard says that you are all right there is no doubt about it, and I will be more than' pleased to accommodate both you and my old friend. Make yourself at home, and when you want anything take it. Any horse on the ranch is at your disposal; however, I have one which I think will suit you better than any other. Come up and I will show you your room? Having changed his clothes and arranged his room Staunton determined to look over the ranch, that is, as much of it as could be seen before the time should come for the evening meal. Going to the barn, he was there saddling the horse which Kenneday had indicated as the one for his use when a young lady in riding clothes rode up to the barn. She seemed not to be aware of his presence, and began to re- move the saddle from her pony. "May I not do that for you ?" was Stauntonls query. As he said this he walked in her direction. The strange lady looked askance at him, as he stood before her, hat in hand. After what seemed to him an unusually long moment, she replied: "Thank you? As the girl walked to the house she was tempted to look back, but refrained. No, she told herself, he could mean nothing to her, for had she not been disappointed in the only man that she had ever loved? It would be folly to think of being in love again. Staunton returned from his ride just in time for dinner, and Kenneday told him that he was not to eat with the cowboys, but was to dine with his family instead. Upon reaching the dining room Herbert was duly introduced to each one present, and at last came to the girl. With a remarkably brave smile covering his counte- nance, considering the tumult released within him, he walked forward and shook her hand, as he heard the name from the lips of Kenneday: HMiss Mildred Ander- son." Kenneday continued: HMiss Anderson came from the East also, on account of her health." They did not meet again until the following morning, when they were both rid- in'g over the ranch and chance threw them together some miles from the house. They both bowed, and she would have passed on had he not stopt her with a casual remark, which she was forced to stop to answer. llIf you have no special destination would you mind if we ride together KW Staun- ton asked, gaining courage, and taking advantage of the opportunity. ItVVhy, of course you may come. I was only out for the fresh air." nHave you been here long, Miss Anderson ?" thnly a week, but I have improved wonderfully in that short time." The Irresistible RaidereContinued. Wfou were ill when you came West V, Staunton was becoming unpardonably curious, it seemed. a But the girl only patiently replied: nYes; a nervous breakdown." And Staunton told her that his condition had been similar, and wondered if the causes had been synonymous. But he did not query further as they rode over the plains. As they came to the dry bed of a ravine which long since had become devoid of water Staunton dropt slightly behind to allow thegirlls pony to make the jump first. lVith a quick spring, the horse leapt for the other side of the ditch. But one of his legs was caught in a hole, causing both horse and rider to fall. White of face, the girl attempted to rise, but when she put her weight upon her right foot she fell faint to the ground. Herbert Staunton was at her side, and soon revived her. He saw at once, however, that her ankle had been severely injured. The horse had also been hurt, even more seriously than had the girl for it became necessary for him to shoot the horse to relieve it. Next Herbert lifted the girl from the ground and placed her on his own horse, and led him five miles to the house. The injured ankle proved to be only a slight twist of the ligaments, which soon healed. Companionship sprang up between Staunton and Mildred Anderson, and one seldom left the ranch house without the other. Mr. Kenneday slyly comment- ed on this fact one day, and the blood rusht to the faces of both the young man and the girl. But Mildred Anderson merely replied that she needed Mr. Staunton nearby in case of another accident. Now the town of Sunnert was in southern Arizona, some thirty miles from the Mexican border. The Kenneday ranch was twelve miles to the south of Sunnert, and consequently only a short distance from the border line. Bandit raids had been reported thruout the southern part of the state, but it was not thot that the bandits would come as far north as the K-enneday ranch and the ranchmen considered that they were in no immediate danger, since an American fort was situated between the ranch and the border. But, nevertheless, everyone on the ranch was provided with a revolver. Despite the distance the large herd of cattle owned by Kenneday form- ed an inviting prey for the eovetous eyes of the Mexican bandits. It was on one of the few rides that she took alone that Mildred Anderson dis- covered not only the danger to the ranch stock, but her own great peril as well, as she surmounted a high hill on the outskirts of the Kenneday property. For there directly in front of her were some twenty-five or thirty Mexicans, mounted on fiery steeds, surrounding and driving to the south a goodly herd of the ranch cattle. She had stopt her horse in full view of the outlaw band. Her first thot was to go for help and to sound a general alarm, but the bandits had caught sight of her, and five of their number came racing to her. One of them caught her almost before she had turned her horse around. She was bound and gagged by the bandits, who, talking in a tongue foreign to her, led her horse toward the border line. Upon his return' from a trip to Sunnert, Staunton, unable to find Miss Anderson at the ranch house, sought her elsewhere. Riding leisurely along on the pasture country south of the ranch house he saw the bandits just as the five who had cap- tured the girl joined the main band with their prey. His initial impulse was to rush in and rescue her. But it would be futile, he decided, and he would likewise be captured. Thus would he be as helpless as she. On second thot, he resolved to make a dash for the fort, in the hope that help might be called from there be- ANNML' The Irresistible Raider-Continued. fore the bandits got too far in the Mexican interior to be captured. Putting spurs to his pony he dasht southward, racing and at the same time praying that the pony would last, and the girl be saved. Mile after mile he went, biting his lips and tearing his hands into the saddle. After what seemed ages to him, Staunton came to the fort, raced by the sentry, and on into the fort. There he sought the commanding officer, whom he told of the girls distress. In a Hash a company of United States veterans were on the trail of the bandits, with Staunton, on a fresh horse, leading the way. As the soldiers reached a valley of thick shrubbery they dismounted, placed their horses in a secure place out of sight of the road, and prepared for the coming of the bandits. Soon the Mexicans arrived, and from both sides of the road soldiers came, with guns levelled. There was no time for the bandits to seize their weapons, and their hands promptly went up. Staunton removed the bands from the mouth and hands of the girl, and spoke reassuringly to her. The Mexicans were disarmed and taken to the fort. The cavalrymen drove the cattle back to the ranch, to which place Staunton and Mildred also rode. It was the girl who told of the adventure when the ranch house was reaeht, ending with these words: IISo you see, Mr. Kenneday, I was right when I said that I needed Mr. Staunton with me in case of another accident." As she said this she stole a glance at Staun- ton which made his heart leap with happiness. It was a week after Mildred Andersorfs narrow escape that she and Herbert Staunton were sitting together on the front porch of the ranehhouse, both silently watching the last rays of day fade from the sky. Suddenly Staunton made a strong and desperate determination which he immediately put into effect. IIMild , Miss Anderson, I have a confession to make to you. I came west be- cause I was heartbroken and disappointed. I thot that I was in love and when I was rejected I was confident that I could never love again. But since the day I re- moved your saddle for you, I have known that I was wrong and that I do love as I never loved before." "I, too, have a confession to make, Mr. Staunton. I was disappointed in' love and when he married another girl, I could not bear it and so I came here, be- lieving that I could never love again. I owe you so much for what you have done for me." a ItAnd have you also come to the conclusion that you can' love again ?,I eagerly queried Herbert. And the raid executed by Cupid was more successful than that attempted by the Mexican bandits had been. A The Perfect High School It was my first visit to the Perfect High School, but the fame of the school was world-wide, and I therefore had heard much about it. In fact, I had heard so much. about the school that I knew before entering its doors that I should not needs look for another room 109 such as we had had years ago in the old Bryan Street High School. I knew that the only perfect literary society in the world, the Bushwa-etal Society met in that room at the close of school at eleven oleloek each Tuesday and Thursday, and that no longer would one find in that room a crowd of suffering sinners sadly substracting seven' from six in an effort to solve an inexplicable prob- lem in longer-than-usual division. On the contrary I might flndebut we will leave that. As I walked up the heavily carpeted steps leading to the entrance of the build- ing I noted the big American flags which flew from every corner of the roof, I saw the beautiful hanging gardens which adorned the front of the building, and remark- ed upon the largeness of all the windows. As I reacht the front door it swung au- tomatically open for me, and there I saw welcoming me with open arms Principal R. N. Reizorc, whose untirin'g efforts had made the school just what it was at that time. After he greeted me cordially and profusely he turned to the next person in the line of which I was but one iota, not overlooking to call a guide to show me thru the building, however. As we walked to the center of the building my eyes were tilled with the unusual grandeur there beheld, the original art masterpieces of all the countryls famous warriors and statesmen. On' the right was the spacious studentsl rest room, a fea- ture of which was the immense fountain which kept the occupants of the room well supplied with ice cold water at all times of the day. On the left was the office of the principal, with a sign prominently displayed outside: nWelcome; tell us your troubles. That is what the board of education pays us for? But in front of me was the surprise of my life. I forgot for a moment that I was in high school; I began to look for the wealthy king that must surely inhabit such a place as was before me. But no, the guide told me that this was but the auditorium. Such a stage. It extended nearly the whole width of the very wide auditorium, and as the guide showed me the immense stores of scenery on hand I wished for the reincarnation of Shakespeare, that his genius might have full play in this school theater. The seats were broad, comfortable ones, such as you can imagine as ex- isting only by your flreplaee at home. A feature of the seats was a container by the side of each one for the books of the student. And the acoustics? One of the stage hands whistled from behind the scenes while I was there, and curiously com- pelled me to ask the guide where the zoo was which had so many dozen birds which sang in unison. But we could not linger here. Soon school would be out, for it was after ten olclock, and the sun was getting warm. The students would coming in here for the free moving pictures and the free Shakesperian play which was on that day to supplant the regular vaudeville perform ance. We slipt out of a side door and headed for what the guide told me was the do- mestic science cooking room, but what if hc had not told me otherwise, I should have said was the largest gathering of infallible stoves and faultlessly good looking girls that any mere man ever witnessed in one period of ten years. We sampled some of the angel food cake, ate a few quarts of ice cream, and hurried to the ele- vator. Up we went to the second floor. There we found rooms the duplicate of those we had overlooked on the hrst floor. A roll top desk and a turn-around chair VVVVVVVV LAAAAAAA The Perfect High SchooleContinued. were supplied each student. A teacher came in only long enough to assign the lesson and was gone. On' the west side of the building we found the library. There uniformed at- tendants supplied the wants of all who sought books on any imaginable subject. The guide deftly whispered in my ear that the biggest library in New York City had attempted to buy some of the precious volumes which were to be found in this collection. He added that representatives from Fort Worth, Spokane, Kalama- zoo, Berlin and other small towns, had visited here to make a study of the system employed in the library, so successful had it been. In the'shorthand room we found an elaborate system of desks and chairs, which automatically furnisht sharpened pencils at the push of a button, and which coughed up note books upon the deposit of a penny. The class in the room at the time had been studying shorthand for two weeks, the instructor told us; he was dictating to them, at the rate of one hundred and twenty words per minute, matter which had appeared in a recent issue of the Congressional Record. W-e hurried to the third Hoor Via the nearest elevator. There we started down the hall of the east side, but were halted by the sound of heavenly music; I thot it was a chorus of angels, and asked if paradise were nearby. tI was willing to expect almost anything of such a school as thisl But the guide merely smiled a grim smile and said that that was the music room. A twenty-piece orchestra was ac- companying the singers. At our right we saw the office of the school paper, the Perfect Hi Journal. Having visited magazine offices before, I hesitated not as the guide swung upon the pore tals of this mansion of ink users. An office boy inquired whom I might be seek- ing. I replied that I sought no one in particular, but asked regarding the editor. The editor, he told me, was at the time in New York, contracting for a news writer who had won fame on the staff of the Atlantic Monthly. I then exprest the hope that I might see the business manager. At that moment, I learned from the boy, the business manager was in conference over long-distance telephone with the own- ers of the Busch interests, who were contracting with the business manager for an ad for their hotel in this city. Finally the nth assistant editor came out on the run, but, being stopt by the guide, kindly consented to show me thru the editorial sanctum. I saw in the offices the most pleasing kind of chairs and desks that any mere editor might wish for. The offices of the best magazines were no more spac- ious. A perfected system of carriers pulled the copy from the machine of the re- porter, carried it to the copy reader, thence to the editor, and from his desk to the press rooms below. At the business managerls offlce six girls were busy receiving orders for adver- tisements, and the copy for the same. Twelve others were engaged in filing the ads or in preparing monthly statements. An' adjunct to the magazine ofhces was an information bureau for the supplying of knowledge to all seekers of it. Six teachers from the various departments of the school were daily in attendance at the office of the bureau. The guide insisted that I test the accuracy and efficiency of the bureau. I then asked what fraction of the distance to the moon had been cov- ered by Charles Evans Hughes on his r-e :ent campaign tour of the coutnry. This question was immediately answered. I was then tempted to query further an so inquired if it was true that Theodore Roosevelt was but twelve steps from the monkey that Darwin found on the River of Suspicion in Central Africa in the year 1874, and if Roosevelt had gained any DALE! ANNIML' The Perfect High SchooleContinued. new territory in Western Germany since nine oleloek that morning. To these questions I received prompt answers. The guide brought me a glass of water, which I badly needed. Feeling somewhat better, I proceeded; but not very far, however. For just across the hall from the magazine ofhces were the military offi- ces 0f the commandant of the cadet corps of the school. Altho the cadet work was not compulsory, every male student of the school was taking the course from choice. , We found the military quarters no less elaborately supplied with necessary and luxurious furniture than the offices we had previously visited. We had to post- pone a thoro inspection until a later date, for it was past eleven oicloek and the school, with the exception of the auditorium, was Closed for the day. The school day hav- ing ended, the theatrical presentation scheduled for the auditorium had begun. This information I gained from my guide. Hurriedly I made for the entrance. The air was good. Such a wonderful experience had taken my breath. I walked in a trance t0 the street. I turned the corner, to find abiglimousine one inch from me. A moment later I was under its wheels; I was being ground into potted ham. I woke up. Because of Spring The birds are all singing, The ilowers are springing, The lambs in the meadow are all at their play, The milkmaid is humming, The brooklets are running, The shepherd is piping all is gay. The sun, without wrath, Is ascending his path, And bright shine the dewdrops full caught in the rays. Each cataracfs leaping, The green leaves are peeping, From each shrub and bush in the meadow and hrays. Come, put by your sadness, Let your heart ring with gladness, The cold dreary winter has Hed far away; Sweet spring decked by llower, Doth sit in her bower And oler all the earth holds indubitable sway. ?DALHI ANNUAZL The Ancient Jitney-Bus By Herbert Craft.

The chickelfs spirit followed us And never once forsook; The gasoline from the gasoline tank, That chickelfs spirit took. Out on that dusty, dirty road, Without the gas to travel; That mystery of the gasless tank, No one could eTer unravel. Dirt and dust were everywhere, Till the very car was painted; Dirt and dust were everywhere, Till everyone had fainted. At length another jitney came; ttHelp! Oh, help !" we cried. "Itll give you gas to get to town,u The newcomer replied. Our jitn'ey-bus then traveled on, And it reached Garland soon; The driver of that jitney-bus, Then fell into a swoon.

Football HARACTERIZED, not by brilliant Victories, but by hard and cleanly fought games thruout the entire season, the football team lof the 1916 season will be remembered as a light, unfortunate, but plucky eleven. W'ith practically all new material, having only two "Dll men at the beginning of the season, the coaches started their task of building up a squad with strength and speed. The men, that showed any knowledge of the game at all, were light. Every opposing team out-weighed our team many pounds. So, inexperienced and light as the material was, it was almost impossible to develop a very strong team. Con- sequently the season was not a success in winning gam s, but it was in that most of the players and the most promising substitutes gained a great deal of valuable experience and training, meeting some of the strongest teams in North Texas this season, and, as the most of them are expected back next year, a good team is the prospect. Allen McConnell, who led the squad this season, showed great gen-eralship and proved to be the strongest man on the line, both offensive and defensive. The back Field men, altho exceptionally light were fast and worked well together. Cheek and Kitts, the fastest men on the team, proved to belexcellent halfbacks. Hut- ton, altho shifted several times, Finally was placed at fullback, a position which he defended ably. Freeman, Spence and Lacy proved themselves capable of holding the end positions. Freeman and Lacy were very effective in their tackling and in receiving passes and getting under punts; their light weight was an obstacle to them in breaking interference. Spence, of greater weight, had the advantage of Freeman and Lacy here but was at a great disadvantage because of his lack of speed, and therefore, toward the latter part of the season, was shifted to tackle. VVarliek and Scudder, both heavy men, were strong as guards. VVarlick, an experienced man 011 the line, had very good judgment and added very much to the line. Scudder for the first time played football this season. Full of zeal and ready to work, he developt very quickly into a good lineman. Bradford at center, displayed excellent judgment, and was one Of the best tackles of the entire team. Gritty and determined, Bradford proved himself worthy of a letter, altho at a disadvantage in weight. Candler, the smallest man on the team, from quarter- back handled his team with impressive generalship, always putting Vigor and vim into his men. Taking everything into consideration, theseason developt many good men for next year and the outlook, at present, is for a good team next season. The Football Team Top How: T J. chkrvll, D. Logan, B.

HE Dallas Cadet Corps, which was organized nearly two years ago, at the m opening of the school year 1915-16, owes its beginning to Judge J. M. Mc- Cormick, president of the Board of Education. Mr. McCormick, who is a graduate of the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College, knowing the value of military training to the youth, proposed the plan for a cadet corps t0 the board. The other members became enthusiastic over the idea and elected Charles J Ken- nerly to act as commandant for the First year. Guns were furnisht four months later by the United States Government, and Mr. Kennerly, who had numerous obstacles to overcome, met with partial success. At the beginning of the present scholastic year the school board selected Cap- tain R. L. Coleman, T. N. G., retired, to be commandant 0f the Bryan Street High School Cadet Corps and also to act as senior commandant of the three high schools of the city. The corps immediately began to show a new spirit of life. The recruits and the old members were at once taught the close order drill and the manual of arms, and after two months of drill under the efficient leadership of the command- ant and a number of officers who were in the corps last year, the different companies began to attain great perfection in drill. An efficient corps of commissioned Offi- eers and staff ofheers were then selected. The captain's, as selected. named in the order of their rank, are: Marcus VVar- lick, Lawrence Cooper, Carl Scudder, and John Payne. The two new captains, appointed when two new companies were formed, are Walter Van Wart and Henry Jaeoby. These eommisioned staff officers were appointed: Wendel Spence, first lieutenant and adjutant, and Richard Abernathy, second lieutenant and quarter- master. The former has answered the call of his country at the front and has been supplanted by Russell Smith. Extended order drill was the next work taken up, and six field exercises have been held, besides a field maneuver, all of which have evidenced the fact that the cadets are becoming proficient not only in close order drill, but are learning the mili- tary tactics of the battle field. In short, the cadet corps in this school has proved itself to be really a military organization. The officers have absolute control of the men, as was shown by the fact that they had no difficulty in' handling the companies during the absence of Captain Coleman for one week last autumn. The corps is respected by teachers and pupils of this school alike,.and is recognized as being one of the strongest or- ganizations in the school. Finally, it helps the boys mentally, morally and physically. They have recog- nized this, as witness these statistics: last year there were two hundred and lifty cadets enrolled; this year, even tho the school has been divided, the number of cadets in uniform is nearly three hundred. The eadet corps owes most of its success to Captain Coleman, who has spent untiring energy and labor in' the instruction of officers and men. The corps has become Firmly establisht in this school and will probably be the most permanent organization in the years to come. CAPTAIN R. L. COLEMAN, T. N. G., RETIRED, COMMANDANT. Every cadet from the private to the highest ofhcer not only respects but has a feeling of gratitude for Captain Coleman. He has taken untrained boys and made from them six companies of highly trained ofhccrs and men. His whole aspect spells efficiency, while insincerity shudders in his presence. Altho exacting a maxi- mum amount of work from the cadets in order to make them cfhcient, he has shown justice to ofhccrs and men alike, and is respected not 011th by the cadets themselves but also by the other students and members of the faculty of the school as well. 3P" 7' . . . :2 - '- D DKLHI ANNIML' Commissioned Offlcers of the Cadet Corps COMPANYA .

We cal attention, however, to the work of the various members of the staff in the hope that should any measure of success be ac- eorded the 1917 Dalhi Annual the staff members who have unselfishly devoted their time and energy to its production shall be given due credit for their sacrifice. The word sacrifice, which seemed so approprate here, reminds us that without the untiring labors of the business management of the Annual no measure of suc- cess would be possible for the book. J. Henry Ball, as business manager, found no sacrifice too great, and the advertising section of this book speaks for itself as evidence of his work. iHis first lieutenant, Thomas Clark, was hardly less willing to work for the best interests of the book. Marshall Barnett, in charge of the department of the graduating class proved himself a capable and willing worker. He was ably assisted by Henry Jacoby and Misses Esther Kiescniek and Lucy Wagstaff. These four were able this year to es- tablish a department record, securing photographs of seventy-eight seniors out of the total of eighty-four in the class. We were materially aided in securing the support of the faculty for the Annual by John B. Milliken. His work has not been confined to one or a few departments, but, on the contrary, every division of the book has beneflited by his suggestions. Credit is due lVilliam A. Hogue for the art work done on the book. Hoguels work is in a class by itself, and has not, we believe, been surpassed in' this school. Stuart Burke, of the organizations department, and Joe Spence, heading the Athletics department, have both rendered valuable services in their respective sec- tions of the book. The data for the under-graduate department was secured only thru the efforts of Ones Ross, John Mayo and Sidney Henry. The services of both Noden Taylor and John Payne have been invaluable to their respective departments. For the work of all of these and to all who have served on either the Dalhi Journal or Annual staffs we extend our sincere thanks. Vvvvvvvssl AAAAAAAA HIS school year, a limited knowledge bids us affirm, may well be recorded as the most gratifying in the history of this school. We feel safe in this assertion because this year is the First to determine whether our school was in the past a leader because of the spirit of its student body and its faculty or because of the sheer weight of its numbers. The survival this year of every activity known to the students of last year, and the greatly increased interest in the most of these, in the face of the withdrawal to the Forest Avenue High School of one-half our number, is ample evidence, we contend, that it is the spirit of our school which has led to its success. The close of this school year has encouraged us to become reminiscent, and we review mentally the proud accomplishments of the year. It has been one fraught with peril, but one of which the student body and the faculty alike may well be proud, and doubly so because it has been by the overcoming of difficulties that the activities of the school have prospered. Earnest effort and whole hearted cooperation have been evidenced in every man-' ner of student activity, and it is these two facts that have made for the successes which have been attained. The students of the school have maintained a standard this year which may well stir the heart of each of them with pride. And, since congratulations are deemed in order, the faculty is not to be overlooked. Collect- ively and individually, the teachets have done their part. Without their gener- ous aid the efforts of the students Would have been in vain. It shall not be necessary here to enumerate the Victories of the year; other de- partments of this book serve that purpose. But the pride in the record we have made this year is just cause for the inflation of the chests of all of us, and it fills the hearts of all to overflowing. We can make no better wish than that the spirit evidenced this year may be forever evidenced in the Bryan Street High School. Not in recent years has the close of a season shown such fine prospects for the athletic attainments of the coming school year as those which are in evidence now. The only cloud on the horizon which we are now able to discern is a war cloud. A critical move may take many of the boys to the front, but such a crisis does not seem to be a matter of the immediate future. To all indications, all three of the teams of next year, and the baseball team in particular, should prove to be win- ning aggregations. This year a full season of athletic training has been given about forty men on the different teams, and of that number no more than ten will graduate this year. Thus we shall have fully twenty-five men, allowing that a certain per cent will will drop the schOol work, who will serve as the foundation for a series of unbeatable teams. With the addition of a few capable recruits from the incoming freshmen classes the teams of the school year 1917-l8 should know no such thing as defeat. For the baseball team in particular the graduation exercises of this year do not offer the bugaboo that graduation exercises so often do to various forms of high school athletics. Of the score or more men who are with the team only one, if our information be correct, is a member of the class which is to graduate this month. This winter weather we had here in May is something of a triple play: weather man to coal man to gas man. Slothful persons enjoy being idle, but nutty ones usually enjoy being insane, too. You can think, or you can talk; talking sounds good, but thinking pays better. If death be but the wages of sin, patriotism must be the chiefest of Vices.
