THE ALCALDE - 1922 - Volume Eleven

Annual Publication of the
Student Body of the Tyler High School
Tyler Texas

GREETINGS

The Alcalde for 1922 is now in your hands. We realize all too well its 
incompleteness. But we beg of you to remember, in your criticism, that 
it was also your privilege to have contributed something which might
have made it better. In our brief outline of the High School Year, we 
have sought to suggest the brightest as well as embarrassing instances 
and include the little bits of stray school gossip. If this modest 
volume brings back to your memory glimpses of the fleeting golden days 
of High School life, of those days which live longest, we shall be 
glad of having tried.
     -- The Staff

DEDICATION

To her, whose untiring efforts, patience, and wise council have made 
possible the publication of this, the 11th volume of the Alcalde of 
the Tyler High School, we, the Staff, lovingly dedicate this year's 
Annual to Miss Georgie Cooper in appreciations of her valuable 
ervices, and her sympathetic interest in us; for she has inspired 
us to work and made this number an honor to the school we all love.

STAFF OF '22

(B.M.C.)

I'm just a dern staff poet, kind of a goat, you know,
The whole staff kicks me 'round to made my workings go,
They seem to think that I can write 'most any thing they say,
And write just anything, just any time o' day.

Now I'm going to say some things they didn't tell me to,
I'll show you just the kind they are, and just the things they do,
And if they all get mad, and try to break my neck,
I'll 'holler" for my rough-neck pals to clear away the wreck;.

Now, the editor, she's a lady, and so my lips are sealed,
But Lord! the things I know on her could never be revealed.
If I consider telling, I turn a deathly pale,
"For the female of the species is more deadly than the male."

The manager, he's a dandy, the slickest kind of lad,
With his old Dodge car and a brain that's far from bad.
He gets the ads, but swipes the dough, he makes the ads go thru;
And drinks a thousand "cokes" on the cash he got from you.

There's 'bout a dozen more that's members of the band,
Some is wors'n the rest, but all's the crooked brand,
So if you have some cash within your pocketbook,
Don't come into this bunch 'till you look, my brother, look!

Now, friend, I guess you wonder why I work with such a bunch;
Well I have my little reasons, also a little hunch
When they've robbed the public (my words are very true)
I'll relieve 'em of the cash and give it back to you (?)

------------------------------------

Here's to you, Tyler High School
With your flag of blue and white;
We're with you, Tyler High School,
We're with you wrong or right.

Your sons are more than many,
And your sons are young and strong
And we love you, Tyler High School,
And we're with you right or wrong.

Here's to you, Tyler High School,
And your glory list that's long.
You're our fighting Tyler High School,
And we're with you right or wrong.

---William Pinkerton.

When all the world seems dark and gloomy,
And there is nothing left to do;
If anyone asks you how you are feeling,
Just say: "Fine, and how are you?"

When your best friends have left you,
And there seems nothing left to do;
Do not sit and worry,
Cheer up! It will be the best for you.

---Oran Lowry.

Psalm of High School Life

Tell me not in mournful numbers
     High School is a waste of steam,
For, altho, they make some blunders,
     School boys still have got the "bean."

All enjoyment and not sorrow
     Is the school life of today
Work put off until tomorrow,
     Gives new life and time to play.

Art is long and science tedious,
     And our hearts, though brave and stout;
Like unmuffled Fords are beating,
     When the "F" reports come out.

Lives of graduates all remind us,
     We can throw away our time;
And some day can leave behind us,
     High school life, the all sublime.

---Walter B. Shelton

The Faculty

Mr. Clough, the head of the Tyler Schools,
Inspires us and aids us in plying our tools,
And smiling Miss Glenn, our tuneful lassie,
Sings us Scotch songs that are quite classy.
Dispensing wisdom and tardy slips there;
Mr. Ratliff sits in his office chair,
Mr. Bingham stands at the board, rule in hand,
He could teach Algebra to most any man.
Mr. Willard rules mid pitches and dabs
Down in the physics and chemistry labs.
Miss Rodgers talks of Latin compounds,
And the mysteries of Caesar she expounds.
Mr. Fenley, tries to teach the freshies math,
Who, like all bone-heads, hate wisdom’s path.
Mrs. Hawes shows through the microscope
Things with which Freshmen minds never cope.
Miss Taylor came in at mid-year,
Dear thing, she drove away our tears,
Little Miss Marberry, tiny one,
De we love her? You bet, to a one.
Mr. Lawver teaches us M. T. and gym
Teaching how to make joints and break limbs.
Miss Henderson talks of Rameses the Third,
From what she says, he must have been a bird.
Civilized man can’t live without cooks,
Miss A. Jones teaches this Science from books.
Now, I come in my tale to Miss Kuehne,
Who devours Algebra as I would a “Wienie”
Miss Mattie teaches literature,
And brags on Seniors, to be sure.
A freshman class she also teaches
And marvels at their senseless speeches.
Of Miss Douglas whom we all adore,
Makes not our dresses to touch the floor.
Miss Terry turns each poor freshman cold
With rules of how stories shall be told.
Of Miss Frels, we are very proud,
She is a football rooter vowed.
Mr. Barksdale, our brand-new-man,
Plays in the orchestra to beat the band.
And dear Miss Cooper whom we all love
Will always be loved here and above.
And yes, Miss Howell, our dearest Steno.
Has won our hearts, somehow—oh, you know!
Miss Burt, too, is a typist fine,
And leads Miss Howell a merry time.
And dear Miss Yarbrough who teaches French,
Can talk more French than the men in the trench.
Miss Bryan, our chic little maid
Is efficient, capable, joyous and gay.
Miss Roughton, our geometry Queen,
Makes us study like (?) everything.

                 POOR LEE BURGE
Lee, are you well today?     Lee, do not worry so,
No, I’m not, Virginia.       You are just a yap.
With Xmas bills to pay.      Kindly let me have some dough
I am almost crazy.           For a seal skin wrap.

                               --Walter Shelton.

Mr. Ratliff:  “For heaven’s sake, what is that noise in Study Hall?’
Sam Vilches:  “Oh, nothing, probably it’s only history repeating itself.”

Lucile Smith: “Oh, you are so bright, I bet your mother has to put you       		
under a tub so the sun can rise.”
James Caldwell:  “I don’t get up in time for that, but I stay out so 
late that there’s no moon.”

Isham Walker:  “My mother was born on Xmas, and my father on the 4th of 
   July.”
Mary Roberts:  “And I suppose you were born on the 1st of April.

Loriet McLeRoy:  “Have you heard the latest scandal on Mary Roberts?”
Florence Henry:  “No, what it it?”
Loriet Mc.:  “Why, she kissed Baldwin R. right on the Tennis Court.”

Harry White:  “Have you read ‘Freckles’?”
Miss Terry:  “No, that’s just my veil.”

Willie Mae Elliott:  “Do you think a girl can love before 20?”
James Kirklin:  “Nope, too big an audience.”

Miss Mattie (in Public Speaking Class):  “What’s the matter with 
you James. Can’t you speak any louder? Be more enthusiastic, open 
your mouth, and throw yourself into it.”

Mr. Beard, a salesman was talking to the Senior Class showing them 
samples of invitations when suddenly Bess Matkin exclaimed: “Oh, 
what if we should have our names changed?’
Mr. Beard:  “Oh, that’s all right, I’ll change your name.”

Emily B.:  “Have you seen the janitor?”
Lena P.:  “No, why?”
Emily:  “He is so black that if you rub a piece of charcoal across 
his face it will make a white mark.”

Maurice Mc.:  “A cod fish lays 10,000 eggs per year.”
Harry White:  “It’s a good thing it doesn’t have to cackle for 
each one!”

Mitchell Mings:  “I’ve got the nicest girl in town!”
Robert T.:  “How’s that?”
Mitchell:  “She won’t even look at a mail wagon.”

My parents told me not to smoke, -- I don’t.
Or listen to a naughty joke – I don’t.
They make it clear to me I must not wink
At pretty girls, or even think
About intoxicating drink – I don’t.
Wild youths chase pleasure
Wine and song. – I don’t.
I’ve kissed no girl – not even one.
I do not know how it is done,
You say I cannot have much fun. – I don’t.

Harry A. (to Mr. Bingham):  “Does the barber charge you full price 
   for a hair-cut?”
Mr. Bingham:  “Worse than that, old man. He considers it such a joke 
   that he adds an Amusement tax.”

       Consolation
Has anyone in this broad land
  Or country ever heard
In favor of poor Seniors
  One solitary word?

We hear enough of Sophomores
  And rights of Freshies gay,
Of Juniors and of grammar grades
  We hear from day to day.

But cheer up, Seniors, sad and blue,
  Until the last of May,
Then we will show to every one
  That we’re to rule the day.

                  Version: “The Pupil’s Psalm”

  “A strict lady is my teacher, I shall not be idle.
  She maketh me to study on hard lessons, for my sake; she 
leadeth me through long books;
  She taketh away my mind; she sendeth me to the office.
  Yea, tho I go thru the grade many times, I have no fear of 
passing; for she is my teacher, her pencil and grade book keepeth 
my record.
  She prepares to call out my grades in the presence of mine 
classmates, she advanceth my cards with red ink; my head runneth over.
  Surely memories (vague) shall follow me all the days of my life and 
I will dwell in her room (after school) forever and ever.”

  “Don’t you wish you were a bird, James Kirklin, and could fly way 
up in the sky?” mused little Lula Thorne dreamily.

through my nose.”

  “Tom”, queried his father, “how do you stand in school these days?”
  “In the corner most of the time”, replied truthful Tom (Jarvis).

extraordinary.”

                       A SHAKESPEARIAN WEDDING

  It was with great joy that we accepted the invitation to attend 
the wedding of “Romeo and Juliet” on the “12th Night” of August, 
knowing how beautiful the bride would look and what Royal personages 
would be there.

  Naturally desiring that our costumes should not be outshown by 
any others, we immediately set about making many purchases from 
“The Merchant of Venice” and really set up such a hum that the 
men, prosaic as they are about such things, declared that we were 
making “Much Ado About Nothing.”

  Undaunted, we began our preparation, and one fine morning, after 
waking from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” we set out on our way.

  Of course, the wedding was as delightful as we had expected it 
to be. The bride, radiant and beautiful, and the handsome bridegroom, 
surrounded by the stunningly gowned matrons of honor, “The merry 
Wives of Windsor”, and the ushers, “Two Gentlemen of Verona”, from 
a neighboring city, made a lovely picture, never to be forgotten.

  Knowing the bride to be a sweet, dear, and lovely girl, we naturally 
resented the minister’s advising the bridegroom, should he find the 
bride to be a woman of ungovernable temper, to set about at once to 
the task of ”Taming the Shrew”, and reminding the bride that whatever 
she did would be returned “Measure for Measure”, we allowed these 
remarks to pass silently, “Considering the Source”, and turned our 
attention to the guests.

  We were not surprised to find among the number, four men of Royal 
Birth, “King Lear”, “King John”, the noble kingsman of his dictatorship, 
“Julius Caesar”, and even our dear old Scotch friend, “Macbeth” was 
present, much to our delight.

  So after much enjoyment, we set out on our return journey only to 
be over-taken midway by a dreadful storm. Fearing the fury of the 
”The Tempest”, we sought shelter at a cottage in a “Hamlet” far off 
in the country, and several hours later resumed our journey, reaching 
home without further mishap, all agreeing that “All’s Well That Ends 
Well.’

               Queen of Texas Contest
  The week preceding the week of November 11th included
the liveliest contest ever given in the High School. The
idea was to elect a popular girl for Queen of Texas and to
represent the High School in the Armistice Day Parade.
After much excitement, at four o’clock Friday afternoon,
Miss Bess Matkin was announced the winner of the contest,
having won by a majority of 2753 votes. Her nearest 
opponent being Miss Marjorie Barton who had 691 votes.
Miss Ruby Ingram came third in the race, having 586 votes.
  The morning of the eleventh of November, a beautiful
float was erected in honor of the queen, and making a bit
of chariot for Her Highness. She chose as her maids-in
waiting Misses Barton and Ingram, and the three rode in
the parade, in dignity. They were escorted by Misses Pope
Smyre and Marie Gaut.
  When the Queen of the Day, Miss Nannie Hight, en-
tered the Grandstand at the Fair Grounds, at 3:00 p. m.,
Miss Bess Matkin and her attendants, Miss Majorie Barton
and Miss Ruby Ingram were also a member of the party
and occupied especially decorated seats next to that of Mrs.
Henry Cruthcher, Mother of the American Legion.

  Mis M. Jones: “What was that knocking at the end of the murder scene in 
“Macbeth’?”
  Emer Shuford: “That was Duncan kicking the bucket.”

  “Elizabeth B.” said he, as they sat on the bench in the moonlight, 
“will you marry me?”
  “This is so sudden!” she said.
  “My love?” he asked.
  “No, your nerve.”

Miss Rodgers: “Walter, decline fio.”

  Unlaced his shoe.
  He took it off
  Skunk dropped his head,
  Some later hunters found him dead.

               Bird—Song
         (A la Mode—Amy Lowell)
                    1
Soft, slow, silent,
To the westward glides the night,
While in the east the sun,
Like to a sleeper rising from an early bed,
Awakes, and stretches forth
His mighty wings to shake off slumber.
                    2
The first reluctant glance of his just opening eyes
Discovers to him, wonders of the morning;
He winks in pleased surprise, and mounts him higher
To gain a better view of that he sees:
A broad flat plain that stretches on and onward;
And that which seems a dark blue smoke, o’er all
The ground that moves, and shakes itself, and billows gaily
Now in advance, now in retreat, yet never
Rewarded for its ceaseless motion there.
                    3
Blue-bells! And in their midst a tree—
One yet so small ‘twould almost seem a bush,
Were it not dignified beyond such appellation
By the fair presence in its soft green depths
Of a small home, whose feathered architect
Has just gone forth upon the topmost branch
To herald in the growing light of day.
                    4
The first gold beams have centered round his body,
And by their inspiration wakes his song.
A few soft notes, sung timidly, and with
A plaintive questioning, that seems to doubt
If he, in truth, be out there on the prairie,
Or if he be at all, and if so, where.
                    5
But with the growing light, he finds assurance,
And finally breaks his song without restraint;
Wild, free, and glorious, in its heartfelt rapture
It seems as if ‘twould fairly burst his throat,
As in the beast of one who hears, the heart
Leaps madly to break down the fleshly walls
In sheer exultance at the joy of being.
                    6
What matters it to him if the small twig
Whereto he clings, with faith as great as if
It were the stoutest thing that God had made,
Might easily be swept away and broken
By a slight wind; or that his life be brief
And apt to fade and leave his body vacant
Of that celestial fire that gave it spirit?
                    7
On these things think he not’ he only knows 
That in the east the dawn is slowly breaking
To flood the plain with a pure light of gold.
While in his heart he feels the joyous presence
Of heaven’s own spirit, breathing love and peace,
And teaching him that wherever he may be,
If he but trusts and sing there is security.
                    8
O Soul of mine, so sing thou, glad and clear!
Are not all questions vain? You need but know
That in the east the dawn is slowly breaking;
A glorious dawn, that floods the world with Truth,
And gives to thee, and all, the glad assurance
That God is ever near, and He is good.
                    9
Then sing, and sing, and never cease to carol;
Nothing there is, in earth or sky or sea
That can, for one small moment, dim the light;
Know this, and keep thy joy, and still sing on,
Till naught is left but thou, my Soul, and Dawn!

Here’s to the soda jerker’s wealth,        And must lead a girl’s life,
If I were a boy,                           My greatest ambition is
I’d be one myself.                         To be a soda jerker’s wife.
                           --Lucile Smith

        The Sophomore Class

Though we are not very old,
  Only two years to be exact,
Ours is a very large fold,
  And this is a true fact!

Purple and gold our colors are,
  As they do proclaim, we’re brave
From the Juniors we are not far
  And our way they easily pave.

We study hard, oh so hard!
  And our grades are so very good
That on our report cards appear
  When we put on our thinking hood.

We have activities quite many:
  Basket and football, plays and programs too,
That do not compare with any
  No matter who.

Now, “gentle reader”, as the authors say,
  We must bid you adieu
And on some other day
  We hope so to see you.

                      --Lottie Ray.

  The Calhoun Debating Society is one of the most beneficial 
organizations in Tyler High School. For the past year it has been 
under the able supervision of Miss Victoria Frels. This Society has 
enabled its members to appear more effectively in public.

  The two selected for the Interscholastic Meet were Morris Collier 
and Leon Schwartzberg. Both acquitted themselves well at Lindale and 
Jacksonville. They have won honors for themselves and for the high school.
  
  The Club delighted the students with its open meeting on April 12, 1922.

  The Calhoun Debating Club of 1921-’22 makes its will in favor of the 
Debating Club of ’22, and’23. May they benefit and prosper as we have.

                         The Science Club

  The Science Club of the Tyler High School was organized four years
ago last fall. Its purpose was to keep posted on all current science, 
to perform experiments not given in class work, and to become acquainted 
with some of the other sciences, as astronomy, biology, etc. As a result 
the club has about thirty or forty names on the roll and is doing 
exceptionally good work. Among the experiments performed this year are 
a number, usually considered too difficult for high school work. Some 
of these are: Making and operating a dynamo, making a step-up and a 
step-down transformer, experimenting with wireless telegraphy, 
determining the velocity of sound in metal, the preparation and 
properties of phosphine gas, and a number of explosives. The club has 
also done considerable microscophic work and has made a study of the 
planets and their satellites. Its last work for the year has been that
of making pictures, negatives, and developing of them.

   The Club gave the following programs in assembly:

1. An Artesian diver                   Conrad McDonald
2. The balloon ascension               Ligon Rozelle and John Burke
3. Colored fireworks                   Lula Campbell
4. Wireless                            Newell White and James Kirklin
5. Liquids                             John Burke

                    The Junior Chamber of Commerce

   What institution has done more for the Tyler High School than 
the Junior Chamber of Commerce? The original Junior Chamber of 
Commerce was organized March, 1921, by Mr. A. L. Burge, Secretary 
of the Tyler Chamber of Commerce, and Miss Georgie Cooper, teacher 
of Economics and Civics in the Tyler High School. Baldwin Allen 
was elected president and Tolbert Duncan vice-president. Miss 
Frances Johnston was elected secretary-treasurer.

  Since that time, it has grown very rapidly in membership, and 
has done many good deeds for the Tyler High School. Every worthy 
movement of the School has received the support and influence of 
the Junior Chamber of Commerce one hundred per cent strong. Many 
times it has come to the rescue; many times it has given its time 
and money; and many times it has helped in reaching the goal. The 
Junior Chamber of Commerce has been helped greatly by the hearty 
work and support of Miss Georgie Cooper. In fact, Miss Cooper has 
been the very backbone of the institution. She has used every resort 
and effort to make the Junior Chamber of Commerce a success. It is 
scant praise to say that she has succeeded.

  The Chamber of Commerce carried out a movement for the school library.
Many useful and needed books were bought by the students. In every 
period of the day, a librarian, appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, 
issues books to the students. This has helped the students a great 
deal in their studies.

  This year, the football team was “up against it”, for an Athletic 
Field. Partly due to the efforts of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, 
a field was gotten and in this wasy not only a place to practice was 
secured, but a place was had for bringing other towns here.

  For the benefit of the Alcalde, the Chamber of Commerce gave a 
Carnival which was a tremendous success. The best part of the carnival 
was the “Majestic” directed in person by Miss Oralie Byrne. This 
netted a neat sum of money for the Alcalde.

  Several times, programs have been given by the Junior Chamber of 
Commerce for the benefit of the Alcalde, or other worthy works. 
They all have had the individual help of the members.

  Probably the greatest work the institution has done or will ever 
do was the publication of this Alcalde. Their success may be 
judged by the class of this book. You may readily see the benefit 
of men to the Tyler High School. The body is growing steadily, and 
with the help and co-operation of the student body, next year it 
will be the greatest and finest institution ever formed by a 
school such as the Tyler High School.

ATHLETICS

  The entire High School is in-
debted to Mr. Bingham’s faithful
services as Football and Baseball
director for the past year. All of
us know that Mr. Bingham is for
athletics.

   (Photos of each of the Athletes)

           ROGERS—Guard
         Age, 16; Weight, 148
  Perseverance got its just reward when
“Cocky” was named among the letter men at
the close of the season. He played in nearly all
of the early games and this player gave his
opponent a hot contest. He is a senior of ’22.

           BUTLER—Quarterback
           Age, 16; Weight, 132
  Tommy had all the assets and few of the
drawbacks of a good quarterback. On defense
or offense, he was equally good. He was rather
light, but spirit up for weight. Tommy is an-
other Senior who leaves us this year.

           GOWEN—Guard
          Age, 18; Weight, 175
  Tipping the scales at 175, it was feared that
Gowen would be unwieldy but the massive
guard proved himself a player of ability. He
will be back to share of the glories of the 1923
team.

           FORTNER—Tackle
           Age, 18; Weight, 150
  Fortner was late in coming out, but developed
as the season progressed. From whistle to 
whistle, the tackler ramrod gave his best to the
team, always fighting with unabated fury. Fortner
possessed the ability of using his hands to
perfection. He is another that passes with the
glory of T. H. S. football team.

           CALHOUN—Guard
         Age, 17; Weight, 165
  “Cal” did not come out until late in the
season but when he did, the qualities of a foot-
ball player came out with him. He was a tower 
of strength on the defense, and could be 
depended upon to clean a path for the runner
on the offense. Calhoun is another Junior.

           LEATH—Halfback
           Age, 18; Weight, 140
  Participating in football for the first time, he
went into the gridiron game with a vengeance.
He was fast and an excellent dodger. His
strongest claim to distinction being the manner
in which he handled the forward pass. He is
another Junior.

           DUNCAN—Fullback
           Age, 17; Weight, 152
  There have been few fullbacks in the history
of the gridiron game in T. H. S. who can be
compared with Duncan when it comes to broken
field running. Remarkably speedy, and en ex-
cellent side stepper, Duncan carved his deepest
and lasting niche in the gridiron “Hall of
Fame” when he dashed 75 yards in the
Palestine game for a touchdown. he is a Junior.

           PINKERTON—Center
           Age, 16; Weight, 145
  “Pinkie” was a veteran of last year’s squad,
and take it from me, he was the greatest center
of the Tyler High School “eleven”. He had a
combined love and natural aptitude for the
game and a passion for work. He possesses a
quick working brain and almost uncanny ability
to solve plays of an opponent. Pinkerton will
be back next year.

           WHITE—Quarterback
           Age, 20: Weight, 152
  “H” was given the distinction of captain of
the 1921 football team. He was the oldest
veteran star, having played 4 years. Because
he was a terrific tackler and a bulwark of
strength on the defense, he was justly dreaded
by every opposing team. He was always the 
best man on the field for filling holes made by
the opponent. He was a sensational player
and the mainstay of the team. The passing
White leaves a wide gap to be filled by our
coach.

           CALLOWAY—Halfback
  While not particularly fleet, Calloway pos-
sessed a driving power before which most lines
crumbled. Whenever a few yards were needed
to make first down, he could be depended upon
to make the precious distance. He was there
when it came to breaking up passes. He is only
a Sophomore.

           WILKERSON—Guard
           Age, 20; Weight, 180
  Wilkerson played his record season this year
and held it down better than in 1920. He was
exceptionally good at opening up holes and a 
sure tackler. He will share the glory of the 
T. H. s. Football team another year.

           AKERS—End
           Age, 16; Weight, 135
  Akers is a Sophomore who made a berth on
this year’s football team. When substituted on
end, runners did not get around him. It is
predicted by many that he has a great football
career ahead of him.

           GOLENTERNEK—Tackle
           Age, 16; Weight, 150
  Golenternek is the only “fish” who made 
the team. He was an excellent defensive as
well as offensive player. His energy was tire-
less and his fighting ability nervy and unre-
lenting.

           VILCHES—End
           Age, 17; Weight, 130
  Vilches was elected manager of the 1921
football team. He was the lightest and one of
the fastest men, consequently it was a familiar
sight to see him get under the punts, time after
time. He was an excellent tackler; and as
the season progressed, he handled the forward
pass more accurately. Vilches has played his 
second and last year and his name will be one
of the few to live with T. H. S. forever.

  Mr. Fenley has been quite successful as instructor for 
the Basket Ball
Team of ’22. It was greatly through his untiring efforts 
and wise direction that this year of Basket Ball has been 
so successful. Tyler High School owes much to him.

Harry Akers, Maurice Shamburger, Howell White, Orville Calhoun, and
Theodore Deere.

      (A photo of each of the players)

           FORTNER—Forward
  Fortner, was especially known for his ac-
curate basket ball shooting, and cunningness
of out-witting his opponents. His best playing
was shown in the Marshall game when he piled
up a score of 28 points, out of 51 made.
When he tied up with an opponent on the court,
he usually came out with the ball, and his
opponent on the floor. Fortner is a Senior
and his place will be hard to fill next year.
           Age, 18; Weight 153 pounds.

           CALHOUN—Station Guard
  “Call” was another dark horse” to win a
berth on the team. He was a standing guard
that could be depended upon to keep the ball
away from the danger zone. Whenever he got
“warmed up”, he got that fighting spirit of the
basket ball team. Much is expected from him
for his next and last year.
           Age, 17; Weight 150, pounds.

           VILCHES—Guard
  Sam, Better known as “Muie”, played guard.
He is dreaded and known by his opponents for
eternally scrapping for the ball. Sam was not
only good at the defense, but quite often you
would see him come flying down the court and
“llopum”. We dislike greatly to give Sam up,
for he’s reliable, and he is a boy who would
make many sacrifices for T. H. S. if called on.
           Age, 17; Weight, 135 pounds.

           CALDWELL—Forward
  “Fatty”, a short fellow, in size only, was ex-
ceedingly successful as manager, as a player,
and as a financier. Due to his ability, the team
went through a very successful year, financially.
Playing his second and last year, he gave his
best. He was dangerous with the ball and a
“hard customer” to guard. Caldwell is clear-
headed, cool-tempered, and shoots goals with
great skill.
           Age, 17; Weight 155 pounds.

           McCRARY—Guard
  Maurice, better known to some T. H. S. girls
as “bright eyes”, hailed from Albuquerque, New
Mexico. His main trait was to never allow the
ball to get into the hands of his opponents. He
was the fastest man on the team, and a trump
card that played high.
           Age, 17; Weight 156 pounds.

           WHITE—Center
  “H”, our only four letter man, and captain
for the last two seasons, is by far the best
Basket Ball player in T. H. S. At center, he is
seldom out jumped; his ability to be all over
the court at once; and his accuracy of shooting
baskets, won for him a place on the all state 
team last year. He would have been there this
year had T. H. S. been represented at Austin.
“H” will be missed next year as he is a Senior.
           Age, 20; Weight 150 pounds.

                           Society

  The program given under the auspices of the Senior class for the
benefit of the “Alcalde” fund on March 27, 1922, caused much comment
among the student-body. Everyone that saw it remarked about its 
cleverness and that it was the funniest play they had ever seen. 
And, it is no wonder the play was the funniest they had ever seen, 
for it opened with the villain (Walter Shelton), a young Spanish 
noble, pouring (with a water pitcher) over his notes, so eager was 
he to whip (he did with a small whip) them into shape, that he 
fairly devoured them (by eating). He got up and crossed the room 
(with chalk) and ground his teeth (teeth of a comb in a meat-grinder) 
in rage. He stamped his foot (with stamps) and call Zinzarella, the 
maid, (Isham Walker) who tore down the stairs (a sign ‘stairs’) and 
tripped into the room (over a rug). The villain bade her call Maggie 
O’Brien (Gertrude Stein). And so Zinzarella flew (by flying motion) 
to do his bidding. Maggie soon came sweeping into the room (with a 
broom). He asked her to marry him, and she refused. He told her he 
would lock her in the tower then, and getting down on her knees, 
Maggie appealed (by pealing a banana) to him. “Your appeal is 
fruitless”, said he (upon eating the banna and handing the pealing 
to her). Poor Maggie was locked in the tower to wait for her lover, 
Patrick, to come and save her. The hours passed slowly (Fannie 
Ratliff and Ada Fortner with signs ‘hours’ walked slowly across 
the stage), and still Maggie, on her stand (a box) by the window 
scanned the horizon for Patrick. She saw him coming. She called to 
him, and he asked her to throw him a line. She gave him a rope and 
pulled him up the tower (the stage). Upon seeing Maggie, Patrick 
tenderly pressed (with a flat iron) her hand, and the villain 
coming upon them was enraged and drew his sword (a wooden stick) 
upon Patrick where upon they assaulted (with salt shakers, they 
sprinkled salt over each other’s heads) each other and, after a 
fierce battle, the villain gave up the match (lighting a match 
giving it to the hero) and bathing his face in tears, (basin of 
water marked ‘tears’) left the room and the hero led Maggie away 
(by putting rope over her head). The sun (James Campbell) set, 
and the hours (the girls) passed and the play was ended. The 
curtains (Oralie Byrne and Loriet McLeRoy) came together. Miss 
Victoria Frels so kindly read the play with much expression, and 
gave to it its feeling.

  Mr. Francis was a genuine ventriloquist, and threw his voice first to
the ceiling and then under the table. No better ventriloquist was heard
on any Majestic program.

  No word of praise can be spoken too highly for our High School 
Orchestra, under the leadership of Miss Louise Glenn and Mr. Barksdale.
They entertained us very much with the newest music.

  The boys’ quartet composed of Clayton McCullars, Lee Burge, Conard
McDonald, and Ross Maberry, was delightful with its humorous songs.

  The program was so very good it is going to be repeated in the near
future.

                           The High School Carnival

  The success of the Carnival given at the High School on the night of 
November 14, 1921, was due, largely, to the efforts of the Junior Chamber 
of Commerce, though all classes in the High School took part in it.

  From the Hippodrome, under the direction of Elizabeth Bryarly, 
featuring the “ground hog’, “missing link”, “dead beat,” “four seasons”, 
“monkey show”, “wild woman”—part taken by Mary Wiggins—etc., to the 
Japanese Tea Garden, by the Freshmen class, everything was in a whirl 
of merriment and proved an enjoyment to all visitors.

  Two gypsies, whom a few people recognized as Florence Henry and Thelma
Watson, told fortunes that only those two have the flattering personality 
to tell, and to please the large mass. Their booth represented the Orient 
in all its glory, form incense to heavy draperies.

  The “Good Eats” booth was ably presided over by pretty Sophomore class
representatives, making it all-the-more attractive.
 
 The High Senior Class proved their business ability and “good-common-
sense” by their original and beautiful decorated “Auction Booth", where 
they auctioned off every article imaginable from a tooth brush to wearing 
apparel. A neat sum was handed into the Junior Chamber of Commerce 
treasury by the class, and much of it was due to efforts of Helen Whalen, 
Truman Warren, Elizabeth Hill and Russell Watson.

  The Majestic given in the large auditorium was truly a success from 
beginning to end. Miss Oralie Byrne having charge, got up an original 
program, truly a work of art.

  The prettiest Freshmen girls in school, dressed in beautiful evening 
dresses, playing ukuleles; and singing “Ma” delighted the audience as 
shown by the vigorous encoring they received.

  Feminine beauty, at its height, was displayed when “Miss” Bernice Bell 
stepped forth to sing “I’m Free, Single, Disengaged”. Miss Willie Mae 
Elliott’s voice could be distinguished easily while Bernice Bell went 
through the gestures of the song. The audience was overwhelmed by the 
beautiful lady’s costume of light blue tarlatan, trimmed with fur, with 
picture hat to match.

  The trials through which the Junior Chamber of Commerce went to get 
this opera star were “overpaid” for by the appreciative audience.

  The great Broadway Players came to Tyler to be on Miss Byrne’s program, 
and to play “Lord Ullen’s Daughter”.

                           James Kirklin
  Interpreter              Thelma Watson

  Miss Triblie Twinkletoes, the midget, was featured in a ballet 
dance. This was the cleverest stunt imaginable, for Miss Loriet 
McLeRoy smiled and waved her hands, keeping time to the music, while 
Miss Grace Hobgood, her hands concealed in ballet slippers, herself 
hid behind a curtain, danced to the music.

  Si Perkins from Grassville came over to play his fiddle for Tyler 
people and also brought his saw upon which he played an “Elegy”. 
Lee Burge delighted the audience as this personality.

  Julian Shettlesworth was the great magician who turned pure water 
to wine and startled the audience with liquid fire. His assistant 
was Clayton Calloway.

  Miss Willie Mae Elliott with the violin and Miss Morjorie Barton 
at the piano delightfully played “G” scale and ended with “Flower Song”.

  Murry Butler with his hypnotism act greatly embarrassed Forrest 
Reynolds and Herman Clay when he put them to “sleep”? and had them 
lecture on the “A B C’s” and dance several nature dances.

  The audience, after laughing long and loud at such clever stunts 
and acts, decided they would like to eat, so they went straight to 
the lovely “pie booth” of the Junior Class, and ate until they were 
completely satisfied, then bought carnations from the attractive 
Venetian flower girls, representing the Low Senior Class and voted 
on the most popular girl and boy, buying their votes from already 
popular girls as Florence Fisher, Mary Roberts, Isham Walker. The 
contest ended by Miss Loriet McLeroy winning the Angel cake made 
by the Domestic Science girls; and Miss A. Jones and Mr. Jack 
Mayfield winning the gold cake made by the same party.

  As was said before, the Carnival was a grand success.

                               Sophomore Class

  During the High School Carnival, the Sophomore Class had charge 
of the refreshment booth, which was charmingly decorated with flowers 
and white crepe paper. Mr. Pearson was kind enough to demonstrate his 
coffee, and we served sandwiches and candy.

  The Sophomore Class meetings have been unusually interesting this 
year. We have taken a special interest in debates, music and current 
events.

                                 Literary

                                 My Funeral

  Wails and cries after wails and cries, and such sobbing of dry 
tears as you have never seen nor heard, all this was taking place 
in the room in which my casket was. All of my near kin, that were 
not in the family relations, were there and they all wept bitterly 
to see one so dearly beloved as myself lying dead and ready to be 
placed in the cold heartless ground. I was stirred to such depths 
of feeling for myself that night, I could not restrain from weeping. 
The tears that rolled softly down my cold cheeks, from lifeless eyes, 
were as large as elephant tears and so great was the trembling of my 
body, caused by dry sobs, that I was afraid the coffin would fall apart.

  To me, my friends and relatives had paid a beautiful tribute. There 
were the most beautiful bouquets of weeds and wreaths of bitterweeds 
and onion tops and other sweet flowers, assembled around the room that 
could be gathered together from the four corners of the earth. In my 
hands, I clutched loosely a few sprigs of grass, which I’m sure cost 
my poor family a fortune. Every time I had a chance I raised up to 
look at these tributes of love and was invariably moved to tears.

  After a restless and eventful day and night, came the dawning of 
the day in which I was to be buried. What a dreadful sensation it is 
to be present at one’s own funeral no one knows until he has been 
there. Of all the horrors that I ever experienced, I went through the 
most shocking one then. Sob after sob shook my frail body until I was 
afraid that, since my coffin was made of tin, it would make such a 
terrible clatter that everyone would become excited and look at me, 
thereby discovering my fears. I calmed and comforted myself as best 
I could and in a little had nearly gained a calm composure.

  As I was lifted out of the hearse at the cemetery, the crying 
wailing began anew. Such was it that I feared I would lose my self 
control and grow hysterical. My casket was placed by the grave, and 
as the last sad rites were murmured over me, I felt that I could not 
go through the awful ordeal. I made up my mind, however, that you 
can’t escape the inevitable, and consoled myself as best I could.

  As they were passing by, each taking a last sad look at my lifeless 
countenance, crying as they did so, I could scarcely stand it any 
longer. A sensation of choking came to my throat and tears welled up 
to my dry eyes. I tried to say something, but could not. The last to 
look at me was my mother, as she leaned over to kiss me for the last 
time, I could not stand it any longer. The tension snapped. With a 
desperate effort, I grabbed hold of her dress and screamed. I had 
awakened; it was only a dream.
      --Faye Gentry.

                           You Can Never Tell
                          (Gertrude Celeste Stein)

  Porter Hastings raised himself up on one elbow and disgustedly 
flung the magazine that he had been reading across the room where 
his roommate, Jack Dowling, sat studying diligently.

  “That makes the tenth story with the very same plot that I’ve 
read in the past two weeks,” Porter grumbled, “each hero leaves 
weeping sweetheart—goes to wicked city—meets wicked-eyed vamps—
falls-gets the gate—returns to the old farmhouse a sadder and 
wiser man, and goes back to the little country maiden.

  Jack did not even raise his head, and Porter began to muse on 
what he would do when he visited the city next week. Suddenly 
there came a roguish idea. All the stories had started in a way 
strangely parallel to his own life. Wasn’t he leaving little Janet 
and the country town for the city? Wasn’t he going for a taste of 
“high life”? He saw himself as the hero in the story he had just 
finished, doing almost exactly as the hero had done, but refusing 
to yield to the idea.

  The next week found Porter Hastings in a large city about five 
days’ ride from Gainsburg. Many were the times he wished for good 
old Jack or Janet, but he was determined to succeed.

  Then one rainy night, he met “her”. One of the boys at the office 
had persuaded him to go to a “select” dance hall.

  Her name was Patsy Sullivan. Her eyes, surrounded by black lashes, 
flashed fire. Her cheeks and lips were vermillion, and her hair was 
sandy brown, parted in the center and sleeked back over her ears, 
each with a jet ear-ring hanging from it.

  Porter forgot the stories he had read, and fell. He didn’t even 
stop to think that she was a poor imitation of the cultured vampires 
in the stories.

  Heavens, how she chewed gum! And when she asked Porter if he minded 
buying so much gum, he replied, with a sickly grin, “No”.

  Then the end came. One night Patsy calmly told Porter she was afraid 
she couldn’t accept his invitations for at least a week, as her 
husband was coming home on a furlough.

  Porter didn’t hesitate. He caught the next train for home. “To 
think, I’ve been such a fool,” he though bitterly, “There’s only 
one girl for me—Janet.”

  He jumped off the train at the station, and eagerly ran across the 
platform. Everything was quiet save the snoring of old “Uncle Pap” 
who sat on a box against the wall. Porter made a dash for the old 
man, but his feet came in contact with some slippery substance and 
he crashed heavily on the platform awakening the old man.

  Porter recovered himself, and laughed at the thought of his 
“graceful” fall. “What in the world is that, Uncle Pap?”

  Rice, ye poor fish, rice! Had one grand weddin’ here this mornin’.”

  “Whose,” asked Porter indifferently.

  “Jack Dowling, so o’ the lawyer, married the purtiest girl in 
the town, Janet Spaulding.”

  Just then a train was passing thru. Porter quietly jumped aboard. 
He didn’t know where it was going, but what did it matter?

  Miss Frels: “If you have finished copying the questions, we will 
run over a few.” We wonder if any were hurt.)

  Mr. Willard: “Copper sulphide plus sulphur equals what?”

  James Kirklin: “Cu. plus S2 equals profanity.”


  Mr. Willard: “Prove it.”
  James: “Well according to the formula, Cu plus S2 equals CuSS. 
A similar equation is Ki plus S2 equals KiSS.”

  Mr. Willard: “Walter, name the iron ores.”
  Walter Rogers: “Hematite, heratite, and hug-me-tite.”

  Lee Burge (in S. S. Class): Did Moses have the same trouble that my
papa has?”

  Mr. Graeser: “Why, Lee, I don’t understand you. I didn’t know he 
was sick  or anything.”

  Lee: “It says here that God gave him two tablets.”

May it’s the month of pure delight
I love to see the birds that sing
Kiss the budding leaves that bloom
You (?) will in this a question fine. (?)

  Zeffie Yarbrough (in history class): “Mary Stuart married a wild 
man the third time she married.”

  Mr. Fenley, when asked to lead singing in Chapel announced: “We 
will sing ‘Come Thou Almighty King’ without a book.”

  Evelyn Huggins said to Mr. Barksdale: “Mr. Barksdale, I can’t find my
Diaphram.”
  Mr. Barksdale: “Come here, and I will show it to you.”

  Mr. McMinn, substituting for Miss Henderson asked the class what 
period of history they were studying.
  Louie Edelman: “Sixth period.”

  Miss Mattie was keeping Tom McDougal in until he wrote a brief theme 
on a ball game. Long he sat and pondered, then he handed it in. Here it is:   
“Game called on account of rain. 
Tickets redeemed at the box-office.”

  Miss Terry: “I like the way Louise says her poetry. She puts herself 
into it.”
  Robert Templeton: “I tried to get into mine, but I couldn’t find a 
place.”

  Louis Hunter: “If you don’t marry me, Ill blow your brains out.”
  Freida B.: “Oh Don’t you might strain your lungs!”

  Miss Ardella Jones, on hearing Mr. Barksdale play in the Assembly, 
remarked, “Oh, I just love his touch.” ! ! !

  Miss Rodgers (translating): “Caesar pitches his camp across the Rhine.”
  Jack Mayfield: “Gee, he must have been a strong man.”

  Florence Henry: “What did Tommie Butler get out of the game for?”
  Harry Akers: “For holding’
  Florence: “Now, isn’t that just like Tommie?”

  Thelma Watson (in Senior Class Meeting): “Be sure and have your 
picture made early, for all the photographers are “full” just before 
Xmas.”

                          Wit and Humor

  Fay Gentry: “Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost’ was written when his wife 
left him, and ‘Paradise Regained’ when she came back.”

  Jesse Pope: “It is my principle never to kiss a girl.”
  Thelma Burnette: “You can’t expect any interest from me then.”

  Miss Cooper: “Where is Peru?”
  Ruby Ingram: “In Chile.”

  Leon Schwartzberg: “When Charlemagne had to entertain an ambassador 
from Rome, he always dressed up in gorgeous clothes and tried to look 
like a Roman Empire.” ! ! ? ? ! ! ! ? ? ?

  We now have an approximation of Miss Frel’s age. She herself, admits 
that she acquired a peculiar way of holding her book—Ages Ago!!

  Miss Bryan: “Lee, name a writer of Greek tragedy.”
  Lee Burge: “Euclid.”
  Miss B.: “No, he wrote a mathematics.”
  Lee: “Well, don’t you call that a tragedy?”

  Mr. Willard to Patsy Palmore: “Now what volt did I use, Patsy?”
  Patsy: (who can’t talk plain, and who wasn’t listening): “W’at?” (Watt)
  Mr. Willard: “Correct.”

                                SNAP SHOTS

  One thing that we would like to know is where our ice-water money went. 
By-the-way, have you seen Mr. Ratliff’s new house on South Fannie?

  It looks like High School girls were made for Cotton Belt Boys.
  We understand that the Basket Ball boys were to get sweaters this year, 
have you seen them.

  For some reason (?) Babe Crutcher has never lost his school spirit. He 
comes to “visit” ‘most every day. ! ! ? !

  Miss Ardella is some cook. We suppose she is going to be self-
supporting and “run” a boarding house (?)/

  Its our guess that before long it will be the Disraeli Debating Society 
instead of the Calhoun.

  Of course, it is none of our business, but the J. C. C. had its largest 
attendance at the meeting before the picture was made for the Alcalde.

  Why don’t we get more “Glee” from the Glee Club.

  One good thing about Baseball is the uniforms X ! X.

           THE SOUTHLAND

There’s a voice from out the Southland
And it’s calling now to me
And I’m going to the Southland
To that land beyond the sea.

O, the palm trees that are waving
In the warm and soothing breeze,
You can hear the waves a-slapping,
And the droning of the bees.

The ocean’s blue and rolling
To the place it meets the sky,
And the negroes all are singing
As they watch the ships go by.

And the nights are cool and wond’rous
With jeweled stars on high.
And the southern cross is blazing
Across the tropic sky.

There the mandolins are tinklin’
And a voice that’s sweet and low
Is singing, sweetly singing
Of a song that’s soft and slow.

----------

                            APPRECIATION

  I wish to take this method of thanking my co-workers on the 
“Alcalde” staff. Surely no other students selected from the entire 
student body could have been more congenial and worked any harder 
for the good of this year’s Annual.

  There are those, not of the staff, who have aided the staff greatly, 
they are James Kirklin, Fannie Ratliff, William Pinkerton, Israel 
Terlitsky, James Caldwell, and Sam Vilches.

  Again, I wish to express my gratitude and indebtedness to these 
reliable students and future citizens of Tyler. My they ever be as 
successful in all other undertakings.
                                   --The Editor

----------

When you read this book, please remember
That our pile of dough was very slender,

And it was these advertiser’s “jack”
That took up a great deal of the slack,

So, when you are shopping, please go
To the advertisers who gave us a show.

They helped us; now you help them,
Pay ‘em back; ain’t that right, Jim?
