Monday: Our football boys played Bonham. There was much weeping and wailing because some of the students didn’t get to go. Cheer up, girls- the worst is yet to come! We were dismissed a few minutes early in the afternoon.
Tuesday: Mr. Crudup told us about the Caddo-Bonham football game in which we were beaten by a score of 3 to 0. In the afternoon we had assembly and an interesting talk from Dr. Hall.
Wednesday: Class day. Airplane stunts drew the attention for many students from the lessons.
Thursday: First thing had in the morning was assembly. For an hour and a half we listened to Mr. Van Meter and Mr. Crudup and went back to the study hall with determinations to be “better children”.
Friday: The great game with Kiowa.
Cubs 18; Kiowa 12
Caddo Cubs won their seventh victory by defeating Kiowa 18 to 12 in a battle that looked like anybody’s game until the final whistle blew. Caddo was crippled by having Briggs, end, and Henninger, half-back, out in the beginning. (They were injured in the Bonham game.) The scores were made by Sargent, Dale, and Henninger.
Kiowa has a fast passing team.
Everyone is looking forward to the game Thursday with Wetumka. The boys are working hard and do not intend to have their record ruined on the last day of the season.
Come on everybody! Let’s go to Wetumka!

Odessa, Gordon, and Zuleika represented the junior class at the football game in Kiowa Friday.
We’re looking forward to exams and surely hope we’ll miss the “Ds” which the teachers say do not stand for “dandy”.
Visit the American Literature class if you like poetry. We’ve been memorizing quite a bit.
The fact that we’re going to get out of school Thursday and Friday makes us happy, but then there the bad taste of examinations we must go through first.
Well, Audrey Moffatt has her hair bobbed! We will miss those curls.
Lucille Grassham, Allene Sessions, and Eugenia Sargent went to the football game at Kiowa.
Exams are almost here. They are something we can’t prevent.
Margaret Jane spent Saturday in Paris and Honey Grove.
The American History class feels relieved as the test on the Literary Digest is over.
The seniors enjoyed very much Bobbie Jewell’s Flying Circus very much.
Note from the Aviation History of Cowley County, Kansas:
TO TEACH WOMEN TO FLY
February 19, 1920.—Students in flying at the Hill-Williams Flying School in Arkansas City are increasing in number almost daily.
Mrs. Bobbie Jewel of Wichita has engaged Hill & Williams to teach her to pilot an airplane, and she is expected here some day this week to start upon her training course. She will learn to fly from the aviation grounds north of Arkansas City.
In addition to Mrs. Jewel there are several young men taking lessons from the Hill-Williams flying school of Arkansas City, and they are progressing rapidly. A young man by the name of Barrett of Ponca City is a new student.
Hill & Williams are also taking many orders for flying machines. Chas. C. Derr of Oklahoma City has purchased a ship from them and he will send a man here to be instructed in flying.
Aviator Williams flew to Pawhuska and back yesterday with a young man by the name of Revard. The passenger engaged him to meet him at Ponca City today and take him back to Pawhuska.

This class put out the first yearbook. It was the “Cat’s Paw” and was printed by The Herald. Lucille Grassham was the editor. Also, I understand that this was the first year a sack of wild cats were turned
loose on the Halloween Carnival.
