itfSa C V7*j, lh H r OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE STUDENTS OF E.D.H.S. VOLUME II, NUMBER I DENVER. COLORADO, APRIL 15, 1925 PRICE 15 CENTS DON'T FLINCH; DON'T FOUL: HIT THE LINE HARD ALUMS HOLD REUNION Charlestoning to a jazzy beat—the alums from the East High graduating class of 1920—recently held a reunion at the Municipal Auditorium after five years on their own in the big. wide world. George Linger drew up in front of the auditorium in his new Pierce Arrow, surrounded by girls. What female could resist a car like that? In raccoon coat, Dick Brown and Gene Zelinger were dressed in the highest male fashion, and the sexless lines of the dresses of Val Freshman and Carol Senechal demonstrated what women were wearing this year. To entertain the alums, Phil Sterling displayed his goldfish swallow- -»»►; ialfcrits. Try a goldfish iui Lliai. smooth flavor! The flying legs of Helene Ross, Marilyn Miller, John Edgar and Ed Dierdorff demonstrated the newest Charleston steps; Rodger Parrett, Ronnie Gotling, Jon Weigardt, Bill Hein, Dave Jackson and Jim Wilber in the jazz band played such favorites as "My Girl Is a Different Kind" and "Papa Isn't Home Tonight." Bob Levy and Karen Goldstein demonstrated their top Bunny Hug form. Carl Baker watched all the goings on from a 20-foot rod. He never quite got over being champion flagpole sitter. The orator, Rich Shore, reminisced about the memorable events of his high school days, carefully including all the points of declamation Mrs. Genevieve Kreiner had taught him. The marathons were the most popular activity. Lynne Halpern and Vonnie Names held the record for talking. They didn't stop once in four days. Joe Wood was the winner of the sleeping marathon. He didn't wake up for 17 years. The All-state team of George Welch and Don Shwayder took the roller skating championship that season. Sandy Kean, Ellen Horwich, Lin- dy Lay, Kay Hinman, Patty Stitt and Clarice Van Name recalled when their bobbed hair almost got them expelled from school. They caused the scandal of the year. Prominent attendants at this reunion included engineer, Mr. James Ogilvie, with his wife, the former Fran Glather; and department store head, Charles Forest Delzell, and the former Joanne Grimes. Jerry Roseman was accompanied by his children, all 12 of them. RED AND WHITE DAY Elaborate plans for the first annual Red and White Day of East high, under the sponsorship of Miss Betty Sparhawk and Fred V. Ticen. are nearing completion as the date set for the big event, May 19, approaches. This celebration replaces Slouch Day which has been held until now. On this day the students wore old and baggy clothes and funny costumes. About noon everyone simply got up and walked out. To prevent this, Red and White Day has been set aside this year. All the students will be asked to wear red and white. A best-dressed boy and girl will be chosen from each home room to compete for the points offered. Rumor has it that J ere (the sheik) Cummins and Katie (the flapper) Bowes will be the two to beat. These points will go to the three classes, counting toward the silver loving cup awarded to the class gaining the most points. After this judging there will be nothing until 2 p.m. when a boys' and girls' track meet will be held. Because lettermen cannot compete, this leaves trackmen, Wells, Writer, Knight and Langan, out of the running. Andrea Jelstrup and Nancy Palm are expected to sweep the girls' field. Following the track meet, gunnysack and three-legged races will take place. Judy Orr and John Edgar are favored in the latter event. The culmination of the festival will be a "jitney" dance in the boys' gym with Chuck Bennett and his "Charleston Charmers." Here the May Queen will be crowned, and she will present the loving ? cup to the class earning the most points. GARDEN CLUB PARTIES An ice cream social in honor of the winners of the annual Flower Fair, held by East's Garden Club, was given in the home of Miss Dona Shwayder last Tuesday evening. Winning first place for her pink peonies was Miss Herbetta Pingree, who blushingly accepted the Blue Ribbon. Runner-up was Miss Billie Kemper, who entered a lovely display of tulips and heather. In the table decorations division, the first prize went to Miss Honey Erickson for her striking display of violets, cattails and St. Augustine grass. Honorable mentions went to Misses Georgia Linger, Michele Roberts, Joan Madison, and Lotta Carr. STUDENT COUNCIL Aside from flapper dresses, racoon coats and Model T cars which have been haunting us since this reckless period of the roaring '20s began, one of the most important items concerning East's Angels now is the organization of the student council this year, 1925! Mrs. Violette McCarthy, a very terrific flapper, became sponsor of the council, which consists of eight seniors, six juniors and four sophomores, in September. Under her leadership it has become a helpful and valuable organization in the school. At weekly meetings the student council works hard to promote our welf are! John Edgar, Charleston champ of the year, suggests that social hours be held daily to reduce tardies. At this time jazz music will be played, gum-chewing permitted and corners provided for "makin' whoopee"! A deadly problem, brought to the council's attention by Bob Levy, is the fact that students are being expelled from school for talking in class without permission and for tardies! "Gee whiz!" said Bob, "something just has to be done about it!" The new constitution recently ratified by the council was written by Carol Senechal, Audrey Meer, Tom Inman and Sergi Djatschenko. In its introduction it states that, in order to be law-abiding (ah, heck!) citizens of tomorrow, East students must have a voice in their school government today! "Something must be done to enforce the honor system in study halls!" declared Don Shwayder enthusiastically. And it was immediately agreed that something wou'd be done! But the plan has not yet been announced! Hot dog, kiddo! It's a great council! Keep it up! Ok y»u j<j i An unidentified floozy pours water on George Linger, owner of the car, while Joe Blake, school head, looks on. ** - —* -.A.
