Sunset and evening star.
And one clear call for me !
And may there be no moaning of the bar.
When I put out to sea.
Twilight and evening bell.
And after that the dark !
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark ;
But such a tide as moving seems asleep.
Too full for sound and foam.
When that which drew from out the boundless deep.
Turns again home.
For tho" from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far.
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

The debating record of the Boys' Oratorical Association for '09 is one to be proud of. For the first time in its
history tlie Association crossed swords with out-of-town talent. The boys of Carthage High School were challenged
and a debate was scheduled for April 9. The question discussed Avas: "Resolved, That every net income of over $5,000
should 1)e subject to a tax by the Federal Government." Carthage chose the affirmative and sent as their champions
James Rider and Allan Stemmons. The Springfield team was Lee Moore and Harold Porter. The school turned out
in a body and by loyal support helped the local team to gain the decision. The victory undoubtedly gave the 0. A.
claim to the high school debating championship of Southwest Missouri.
This present year chronicles also the first defeat ever sustained by the organization.
Esther Moore and Ethel Potter, representatives of the Girls' Literary Society, which was en-
couraged to extra effort by the defeat last year in the first inter-society debate, took this
year's contest from Earl Turner and Leonard Campbell by a two-to-one decision. Although
defeated, the boys upheld the high standard set by preceding debates. While the success
of the girls is lamented as breaking the otherwise perfect record of the association, there is
consolation in the fact that it is "only a family affair, anyway," and that it Avill make 0.
A.'s victory next year more appreciated.
In brief, the record of the Oratorical Association consists of five debates — two with
Drury Academy, two with the Girls' Literary Society, one with Carthage — and four of the
five won l)y O. A. It is certain that tlie future record Avill be as praiseworthj- as the past
and that the school will continue to show its appreciation of this organization.

Officers of A
Cluiirman of Games Committee.
Athletics started with a rush this year, for everyone seemed
enthiised over the promising prospects for all branches oi'
school sports. Many new recruits promised to aid the older
experienced men to gain many victories and to keep up the
record made in previous years. A large number of students
and teachers were annexed to the membership of the Ath-
letic Association, and it seemed that the student body Avas
pulling and the faculty pushing.
As usual, the football boys were called upon first to furnish
amusement for the gridiron enthusiasts, and many promising
recruits responded, who, it was thought, would work down
into good material.
Arthur IMyers held the captaincy of both the basketball
team and the football team, and, since it was necessary for
him to icsigu oiic or the other of these, he decided to give
up his well-earned position as football captain. Sherman
Rogers, elected to fill the place, soon gained the confidence
of the rooters as a systematic football captain. It was lucky
that this change was made, for jMyers soon received ;in in-
ji'i-y which foiccd him fi'om the game for tiie remaindei' of
the seasiin. In ;i shoi-1 lime the new captain, with the nec-
essar\- licl|) of .Mr. Marl in. had developed the new matci'iai
into a heavy, yet I'asl. team, which seenu'd fated to coiitend
more with hard IncU' than with otliei' school teams.
(iames seemed iiard to match with out-of-town teams.
tlu)i^gh many pi'actice games and class games were i)layed,
Avhich kept the team in good form. At length a game was
procured with Webb City High School, to be played at Webb
City October 10th. All of the players expected to win this
contest by playing hard ; the student body and faculty also
had hopes of victor^^ However, the favorite full-back did
Jiot get to go on the trip, and when Hart, the heaviest man
on the team, received a broken collar-bone, which necessarily
put him out of the game, the team was not only very much
weakened but greatly discouraged, and lost the game by the
score of 10-0. The boys returned, feeling that though they
had been beaten there they might win on the home grounds
after having more practice and making changes in the line-up.
Other games were played, including practice games with
Drury and a match game with Drury Second, M hich was for-
feited to Drury on account of a deficiency in tlu' umnber of
High School players present. The Alumni were also played,
and, though this game Avas lost, it proved that much good
football nmterial has been developed in High School.
The next game of importance was that played against
Webb City on the home field. This contest was annexed to
our "won" column by the score of 10-6. It was the last reg-
ular game played, owing to minor difficulties in connection
with members of the team, yet this game Avas proof of the
ability of individual players as well as the team as a Avhole.
By the end of the season the players had developed certain
characteristics which will be given here for the benefit of
those who did not see them play. Tisdale at full-back had
the confidence of everyone as a player and always held his
nerve, and Leckie, who replaced Tisdale during the latter
part of the season, also proved to have these same qualities,
except that he was faster, but not quite heavy enough to
hit the line. Campbell was noted for knowing the game and
being able to "boot" the leather; while Rogers proved him-
self a star at all-round play. Lillie, at quarter, received the
well-passed balls of "Big" Nelson at center with much ease
and assurance. Nelson was a good center and was well
guarded by Moore and Hawkins, who were heavy and sea-
soned, with nerve and "ginger." Bradley certainly filled
Hart's place at tackle — if anything, having him bested, be-
cause he was almost as heavy and not so tall, which enabled
him to get under his opponent. Schweider seldom failed to
stop his opponent 's plays through his side of the line and to
get his man out of the way when necessary. At the ends,
Bush and Lyle were fast and always willing to try for a man,
though they sometimes missed their tackles. Kelso and Cof-
felt were good substitutes, since Kelso could be placed in the
line and Coff'elt at end or half-back. No one has been chosen
to captain the team next year, as it is thought better for the
members of the next team to choose their own captain.
Another game, which has for the last few years attracted
much attention in High School, is girls' basketball. Last
year the team was one of the best, if not the best, in the state :
and though most of that material graduated, the team of this
year was equally as good, since it won all of the games that
were played. Their success was largely due to the regular
practice which they began early in the season under the sup-
ervision of their coach, ]Miss Kearney. The fact that they did
not play many games does not mean that they were not cap-
able of playing good ball, for each and every member of the
team proved her ability to play a fast game in the few con-
tests that were witnessed by the student body.
No young ladies' team of the city could make it interesting
for the High School six, and an attempt was made to schedule
games with schools of other towns. A game with Carthage
High School played here at the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium was
won by the score of 31-7 in our favor. This proved that out-
of-town teams as well as city teams could not compete with
such players. More games should have been procured, but
there was a deficiency in the treasury. This team was one
that would do justice to any school or association.
]\Iary Chambers, the captain, played hard and worked well
with Marie Gates. They both had a good eye for baskets,
and many were the one-handed throws that they made which
resulted in field goals. Eleanor Boehmer and Peach Rogers
played a hard game at center, for after successfully knocking
the ball toward High's goal they used the best head work
and basketball tactics to keep it at that end of the field. As
guards, Edith Moore and Julia Pierce were superior to any
other guards of the teams contested with, this fact being
proven by the low scores made by the opponents. Although
Fern Bearden played on the team last year, she did not take
time to play regularly with this year's team, but acted as
substitute, and certainly made a good one, for she was an
experienced hand at the game and could fill any position on
the team when it became necessary.
The boys' basketball season opened with games against
Alumni, Carthage, Webb City and Jasper, all of which were
lost. The team started into the City League, which was com-
posed of the Normal, Drury, Acorn Club and High School,
Avith rather a poor standing, but hoped to improve with
practice. Difficulty to get that practice, as well as other bar-
riers, stood in the way of a strong team. ]Much of the new
material was very light, and the experienced players did not
keep in as good training as they should have to make a
With the responsibility of captain resting upon him, ]\Iyers
did not play as good a game at center as he did last year,
though his playing was first class, and he was thought to be
the best center in the league. Tisdale, as one of the guards,
played a hard game and held his place on the team during
the entire season. This was also true of Kuchinski, who
played a fast game as the other guard. The forwards were
a little doubtful throughout the season ,- Elkins and Rogers,
being perhaps the best material, played at these positions.
Campbell played as first substitute, though some of the sec-
ond team members were played occasionally in regular
games. Nelson and Gibson both did well when in the game
and pi'omise to make good material for next year's team.
Many new men were out early to try for the baseball team,
but. owing to some new rules made by the faculty, several
of tbe boys were forced to quit playing. However, some good
material was chosen to represent the school and was siiccess-
ful at first, defeating the Woodland Heights nine, which is
considered to be the best amateur team in the city.
The members of the team, as they appeared on the field
for practice at the time the Resume went to press, may be
characterized in the following lines: Thrall, as catcher,
was a good judge of what kind of a ball a batter liked and
the reverse, also losing good judgment when men were on
bases. Though he did not hit very well, he promised to im-
])r()ve by the close of the season. R. Hart pitched most of
the games, and the fact that he worked with his catcher
was tiu^ explanation of his success. He hit very Aveli
for a pitclier. At shortstop, Leckie had a good eye for a
bounce and a neat "peg" to first. He hit well and could
pitch good lijill Aviicn he was needed in the box. Clauser
played a goo(l game at first, seldom "muffing" the ball, and
hitting at a good pace; while "Cy" Dooms was noted for his
hitting and fast fielding. Thircl base was guarded by one
of the best amateurs in the city, Gordon Higgs. the captain,
who deserved to fill that position from the way he hit and
fielded. All of the players took pride in "Captain" Higgs'
neat ball playing. H. Hart had the reputation of a pinch
hitter, and when in the out-field he got everything that came
his way. Foley and Lillie played in the remaining out-field
positions and usually got the ball when it came within their
reach, both hitting a good per cent. Turner and Jones were
Baseball was the only spring sport indulged in. because
there was no tennis court or track on which to keep teams in
training if such had been organized. Thus baseball held the
interest of everyone.
Mr. Martin and Miss Kearney deserve much credit for the
work which they did with the different teams.
HUB BOWERS, leaning disconsolately against the
steps of the boys' dormitory, abandoned himself to
misery. Round of face, short of stature and indo-
lent in manner, he scarcely fulfilled one's ideal of a
person doomed to assume the role of a heavy traged-
ian in life's drama, but at this particular time he looked any-
thing but his usual jolly self.
His woes were two, and from Chub's personal pomt oi view
only a Shylock could hear of them unmoved. In the first
place, he had always kept an eye of longing on the leading
part in the class play, and tonight would witness its pre-
sentation with another — a usurper. Chub considered him —
assuming the title role. He hoped that the whole thing
would be a failure, and probably he would get his wish, for
whoever said Ted Burnes could act ?
But that was not the greatest of his woes. There was an-
other, and at thought of it Chub's round face looked more
woeful than ever, if such were possible. From Dorothy, who
had sweetly consented to Avitness the play in his company,
he had .just yesterday received a note in which she explained
that she had been mistaken — so much to think of — how could
she remember that three months ago she had promised Hal
(his own roommate) the engagement ? With a feeling of
helpless irritation he wondered why girls wouldn't play fair
about such things. Why couldn't she own that Hal had dip-
lomatically sent her a box of chocolates and a note yester-
day an hour before she wrote this to him ?
For Dorothy, it mu.st be said — and let it be spoken low —
was sadly mercenary, and the boy who could furnish the
most entertainment and — chocolates was the most favored
so long as the attentions and candy lasted. Chul) had felt
this to be true for some time, but luitil now he could not
have confessed such a thought, even to himself. He despised
himself for wisliing that his pocket had contained more than
a (piaiter and a nickel, which amount represented tlu> price
of admission for two to the class play, so that he couhl luive
sent tile clu)colates.
A merry whislh- l)roke in upon his liiltcr inusings. and a
nionuMit latei' Ilal swung gaily around tlu' coi-ner. his cap
tiitetl at a provokingly jaunty angle.
■'I say, Chub," he asked as he reached his friend, "are
you going- to take a girl to the play tonight?"
There was a sullen shake of dissent from Chub. Hal's face
became still brighter.
"Well, I'm glad of that," he declared. "You know how
luicertain my laundry is. Yours is all right this week?" he
inquired with concern.
Chub nodded shortly. A daring plan suggested itself to
him, but before he could think it out Hal, in friendly fashion
confided to him that he intended to dress early and "knock
around town" before going after Dorothy. "With a mixture
of generosity and condescension in his manner he added :
"Come on up, old fellow, and stay with me while I dress."
Chub could only assent feebly, and a few moments later
the two boys were in their room, where Chub sat gloomily
Avatching the progress of his roommate's painstaking toilet.
The latter seemed unusually critical of his appearance to-
night, a fact which tended to incense Chub further. Silently
he saw his chum cooly help himself to the last clean collar
without the customary "If yow don't need it.'* Evidently he
was taking no chances this evening. When it came to ties he
could afford to be more civil.
"Chub, old man, I'd like one of your ties awfully well for
tonight." he said. "I haven't a thing that'll look well with
And without waiting for a reply he carefully selected the
most expensive one in his friend's rack, and as carefully ad-
justed it. When his toilet was completed, he glanced anx-
iou.sly at his shoes.
"Didn't have the price for a shine, and these certainly
look bum," was his somewhat rueful comment. Then brigbt-
ening, "How'd you like to have me break in those new ones
of yours? Didn't I hear you say they're rather uncomfort-
able in spots?"
Chub, remembering one evening of torture spent with and
because of those shoes, handed them over with fairly good
grace. Bwt the daring plan still remained in his mind. Hal's
nerve was maddening. His manner plainly said, "It doesn't
matter Avhat you wear, you. know; it's a different thing,
though, when a fellow's going to take a girl — and you
arn't. " He remarked lightly as he rose:
"Now, my hat."
Fortifying himself against pleadings, threats, moral and
physical persuasion. Chub announced stonily:
"I guess you'll not wear that tonight."
Now. while the boys had their individual clothing, there
was one thing they shared in common. Going with girls of
the Dorothy type had been rather expensive, and when
winter came and there was need of something in the way of
head-gear other than caps and felt hats, the two shared in
buying a derby which was to be held jointly and worn by
one when it Avoiild not interfere with the other's plans.
There had been no trouble before this; each had been con-
siderate of the other; therefore, Hal was amazed at Chub.
"Not wear it!" was his astonished remark. "Why, you'll
not need it tonight. Why won't I wear it?"
To this Chub had apparently no reply other than stationing
himself above the box containing the hat.
"You must be crazy," was Hal's next enraged comment.
"That hat's mine as much as it's yours!"
"Yes, but Avho's worn it more, I'd like to know?" came
indignantly from Chub. "You're wearing all my clothes to-
night, but you just bet you'll not get this hat. Your cap's
all right, anyway." This last tauntingly, for he knew how
impossible a cap was for eveniiiii' Avear from Hal's point of
The latter flushed aud faced him augrily. "You give me
that hat or — "
He left ott' impressively, thinking that an unfinished threat
would imply worse things than a completed one. The other
stood unmoved, closely guarding the box. Hal, goaded by
the other's cm hnuess. struck out with his clenched fist. Cluib
dodged, lost his i)alance and. alas ! crashed down npon the
box. crushing the hat beyond recognition. Hal's hand met
the wall with surprising suddeness and i)ain.

His victim hastily drew from his pocket one of his two
coins and deposited it into the grimy hand of the urchin.
Without thanks the imp, half turning, said with a grin :

him," quickening his steps, "that Ted Burnes .just now sent
sis a five-pounder of the best candy in town."
With that he was gone, and Chub, surrendering the note to
Hal, luiderstood the contents of it as well as if he had read it.
His mind wandered regretfully to his lost nickel, and at the
same time his hand sought his pocket. He started at the
sickening discovery — he'd given that likeness
of Satan his quarter ! He looked across at his
chum, who had finished reading the note.
Something like sympathy moved him to say,

THE TIE GAME
^^^^ HERE is a tradition at Hilton that Thanksgiving'
^^|»| is always rainy, bnt this one proved an exception,
^^^g for it dawned bright and clear. At a little before
^^^^ three the grandstand was packed with a howling
mob of students and other footbal enthusiasts, each
waving either a i-ed pennant of Hilton or a blue one of St.
Eustace. Though the Hilton coach was all smiles on the out-
side, inwardly he Avas railing the fate that deprived Hilton of
IMarch. her crack half-back and captain, who was on proba-
tion. At this time he was before the faculty trying to (jual-
Suddenly a shout was heard, and almost at the same time
the two teams trotted on to the field. Then the whistle blew,
and the two teams bunched in the center of the tield. A coin
was to.ssed, and the men lined up. The referee's whistle
sounded, the pigskin soared aloft, tnd the game Avas on.
The ball fell into the ready hands of Blair, the Hilton full-
l)aek, who sped swiftly down the field. One white line passed
under foot, then another. l)ut before a third could be made
the St. Eustace ends were upon him. Three times Blair was
rammed into the St. Eu.stace line, each time for a small gain,
but at the end of the third down St. Eustace tore gaping
holes ill tlieii' opponents' line big enough for a coach and
foul'. UKii'c than large enough for the St. Eustace backs
to go galio|)ing through for three, five and even a dozen
yards. No line can long stand such treatment, and finally, by
a i-iish through his position, the big left tackle of Hilton was
knocked aside with such force that he lay where he had
fallen. lilair held up his hand, and a snhstitnte struggled
agitatedly with his sweater and bounded onto the field. The
rest of the half w^as a losing one for Hilton, and when the
w^histle blew the score stood St. Eustace 4, Hilton 0.
The second half started about as the first had. Back, back
went the Hilton line till it was only ten yards from their goal.
At that moment March appeared on the run, struggling with
his vest as he ran. Blair saAV him, and, suddenly discovering
a lame ankle, called time. The referee's Avhistle piped.
"I can play," shouted joyfully.
"Then get in there at half," the captain commanded.
"And oh! March!" he pleaded, "kick us out of this hole."'
"All right," he addecl to the referee.
"Hilton's ball, first down, five yards to gain," called the
Back on the goal line stood the half-back Avith his hands
outstretched. Suddenly the ball was snapped. A second
later it soared in the air, propelled by a mighty kick. A St.
Eustace player caught the ball, but before his foot had tAviee
touched the ground a Hilton end upset him. On the next
play St. Eustace made her first disastrous fumble. A Hilton
player grabbed the ball and sprinted for tAventy yards before
a St. Eustace player tripped him. A double pass was made;
the ball Avas in kicking distance of the St. Eustace goal.
IMarch took his position for a kick. The ball came Ioav and
straiglit into his hands. Taking a (juick step forAvard his
toe met the ball and sent it safely over the goal posts just
before a St. Eustace player, Avith strength born of despera-
tio!i. kiu)eked him violently to the earth. The score Avas tied,
and in a Avhirl of red the croAvd rushed over the ropes.

Of course we won't get mad because they thought such
things of us, and we won't mention that they are sweet on
each other, either.

boy was no sign she wanted to be roasted. As if we would

affections ever siiould ramify or become segregated. She.
of course, will remain loyal to llenuan. and together they
will drift down through history as having had the worst case
in tlic records of High.
Walter and Helen came personally to the Resume office
and begged that we would not say anything about what they
did the night of the class party at Dorsey's.
Good gracious! We wouldn't think of telling people that

^ RECITATION IN SOLID
Professor G— gg begins program by asking Arthur Myers
ail excuse. Arthur marches to the desk with it, accom-
panied by a chorus of, "Who signed it, Art?" "Didn't E E
tell you you mustn't sign your own excuses?" etc. etc Prof
G— gg then assigns the lesson for Tuesday. Lee Moore takes
the floor with, "Say, Mr. G— gg; that's the longest lesson
you ve given us this year." Harry Lawing maintains it's the
shortest, until Roy Hart, over by the door, makes a noise like
Jlr. Dodd, and the question drops.
Mr. G— gg then puts a circle on the board, draws a line
through It and proceeds to demonstrate: "If the radius is
greater than 'Y,' the line will intersect that sphere in how
many points ? ' '
"Two," in concert.
"If it is equal to 'Y,' in how many points?"
"One," from a number.
Ray Lyle objects, and a debate is soon on : "Resolved, That
a tangent to a sphere does not intersect that sphere '"' Af-
firmed by Lyle ; denied by Rukes. Mr. G— gg, after hearing
able discussion from both sides, decides that it depends upon
which way you look at the question. Illustrating bv a chalk
box he says :
^''The surface of this solid does not belong to the box."
"I'll bet you can't take it away from it," from :\loore ■ and
"Whose is it, then?" from Myers.
Carl Israel's form darkening the doorway reminds the clas.s
that it is nearly time for the bell to ring and Mr. G— gg makes
one last effort. He snaps his fingers for attention, and awak-
ening John Woods, who, to make up for lost time. Avaves his
hand in the air with :
"I can prove that one, Mr. G — gg."
The Prof, takes courage and gives Mr. Woods the floor.
He starts his recitation thus :
"Well, hem-m-m — "
