The fall of 1912 marked the entrance into the Freshman class of the largest, most ambitious, and resolved-to-go-through bunch of young people that had heretofore been known in the history of our school.
For reference of patrons and information to strangers, I will here give a brief outline of the history of the Rose Hill High School.
In 1908, patrons of the district school in and around Rose Hill met in their respective districts, voted to consolidate and immediately began necessary preparation. That fall a graded and high school was opened in the I. 0. 0. F. Hall, and in the spring of the next near a school building was begun in the south part of town, and was completed that fall in time for the opening of the new school term. It was a grand undertaking and every year new converts are won to our new school system proving that the community at large has no regrets to make for this step toward improvement in their community. Indeed most of them would not know what to do without it.
But to go back to the topic of this history. The harvest of 1912 from the eighth grade had been a good one and the fall of the same year found the whole “endurin' lot” back again, among whom were found: Grace
Beedy, Maxine Shaffer, Russel Fesmire, Harold McCune, James Harten-bower, Harvey Hartenbower, Effie Simpson, Anna Webster, Oak Fleming, Chester Whitted, Elbert Hensley, Rose Clinger, Bee Waples and Lloyd Dennett. Besides these, seven others were enrolled: Ray Reeder, Alonzo
Prickett, Hazel Hough, Gertrude Nachbor, Hazel Lawson, Dan Swindell and Bertha Stice, making a total of twenty-one pupils.
This most unextraordinary Freshman class of 1912-13 progressed very well the first year (although none of them were bothered with remarks from the faculty concerning their extraordinary capacity for learning, or vice versa), under the auspices of Supt. H. I. French; Principal, G. C. Collingsworth; Assistant Principal, Kate E. Moon. All but three came through the first year, Dan Swindell, Elbert Hensley, and Hazel Hough having quit before the term expired.
When school opened in September of 1913, it was that the roll call under the title of “Sophomores” had been reduced from eighteen to sixteen members. The list included: Maxine Shaffer, Russell Fesmire,
Harold McCune, James Hartenbower, Harvey Hartenbower, Effie Simpson, Anna Webster, Gertrude Nachbor, Oak Fleming, Chester Whitted,

Rosarum Coll is
Rose Clinger, Bee Waples, Alonzo Prickett, Lloyd Dennett, Ray Reeder, and Hazel Lawson. The faculty were: Superintendent, A. H. Murphy, Principal, G. C. Collingsworth; Assistant Principal, Elzada Harris.
Two pupils, Chester Whitted and Bee Waples, dropped out before the end of the term, and Hazel was taking “High” in three years, became a Senior the following year, so that the class was reduced to thirteen; but luckily for them, in the Junior year Avice Williamson joined their ranks and raised the number above the unlucky “thirteen,” where they kept it the rest of their “High” career.
Up to this time, although a few changed their courses, none who had stayed with the class had failed in any subject carried through the whole year.
The last year of the class of 1916 found enrolled: Marie Waples,
Maxine Shaffer, Russel Fesmire, Avice Williamson, Ray Reeder, Harvey Hartenbower, James Hartenbower, Elbert Hensley, Gertrude Nachbor, Effie Simpson, Alonzo Prickett, Harold McCune, Oak Fleming, Rosp Clinger, Anna Webster, and Lloyd Dennett. The numbers remained the same the first semester, but in the early part of the last half, Lloyd Dennett quit and James Hartenbower moved away.
This bunch of ’16 was the most democratic class that had heretofore graduated from the old “High.” They did not hesitate to stoop and help a Freshman out of a mire, and they were a hard-working, industrious class.
In leaving the old roof many fond regrets will be made and many a “briny” tear shed over thoughts of the good old days that have gone forever. Long may the old “High” stand, is the prayer of the Alumni of 1916.

Thus endeth our first lesson.

Daisy.
Although of high intellectual abilities as well as athletic prowess, our modesty forbids us to do justice to the merits of the ’17 class.
Among other things, the Juniors are the only class to retain its full class roll during the school year of 1915-16.
Rose Hill High School had two debate teams during this year and one was composed c,f Juniors. Needless to say we won our contest, while the other team was hopelessly defeated.
As for athletics, the baseball register shows the larger portion to be Juniors, one of whom is Captain. We also have representatives on the basket ball team. Again a Junior is Captain.
Furthermore the track team somewhat resembles the Junior class, in that a great many of the members of the track team happened to be enrolled in the class of ’17.
We must not forget to mention the fact that the best declaimer for R. H. H. S. is in the form of a Junior.
The fact is, this most illustrious class of ’17 is an adornment to the school which bears it, not only in the above mentioned qualities, but in all activities of the school. Again we caution you not to expect to.o much, since our extreme modesty allows us only to give bare facts.
Notwithstanding this, we must mention the fact that the largest majority of this annual staff is composed of glorious Juniors, while both boys’ and girls’ literary societies are adorned by presidents from this said Junior class.
Since we have insufficient space for the enumeration of all of our merits, we must now ask you to bow to us—we of the class of ’17.

The Sophomore class is the smallest in the school, but by the aid of the Juniors claims basketball championsh'p. John Alley, the Samson of the school, throws the shot like a cannon. Lowell Hinshaw vaults over the moon. The name Smith we associate with a joke but remember not a joke. In the realm of Grand Opera the Soph-omores have two stars, Harold Webster with the tenor voice, and Grace Hinshaw with a sweet and pleasing soprano voice. The Cox sisters hold up the literary end, while Lester Carr will hold down the chair of mathematics. Last but not least Leon Reyer is the best read historian in school.

On the sixth of September, 1915, there was born into Rose Hill High School a disease known as the Freshmen class. Owing to the character of this disease it was not easily spread. Only those that associated themselves with this unsophisticated bunch became affected with the plague.
This vegetable diet started out on its quest for knowledge with the number of twenty-eight, but before long things proved fatal to six. While the disease has proved fatal to but few, it has so incapacitated others in such a manner that they may not recover for a year to come.
This class is trying to inaugurate a new brand of athletics. “Pussy wants a corner,'” “Jackstones.” Dennett even plays with little Carrs. Many other games too numerous to mention.
But this is a stage so essential in the development of all-around citizenship. Abe Lincoln was no less awkward than Kelsey Hinshaw. Dan Webster was no less brilliant than our own dear Parsons; “by heck” Mitchell the equal to Bud Fisher; Cecil McCullough, the pugilist, knocked out by no less a rival than Algebra.
Rayburn expresses himself as follows:
Who is it worries Walling most?
The Freshmen!
Who is it likes to strut and boast?
The Freshmen!
They wear high collars every day,
Too stiff to let them run and play.
In class they haven’t much to say,
This bunch of “Freshy” Freshmen.
The editor was inspired in this manner.
I saw a field of greenish hue.
Methought it was a field of grass.
But as I nearer to it drew,
I saw it was the Freshman class.

BY THE MANAGER
Up to the plate, Webb—off with your mit, Start out the game—why, it's a hit!
What a fine single—hummer, by heck;
Bill to the bat with Mitchell on deck.
Look 'em aM over—that was too wide;
Duck or heyll get you—that teas inside; Keep your eyes open—swing on it, Bill! Look at that fielder up on the hill.
Bill is on second—Webster on third, Douglass is silent—Nary a word.
Mitch knocks a high one—up in the dome, Diamond makes f umble—Webster gets home.
Higgins then follows—nice sacrifce;
Ick gets a long one—mark us down twice. Stilts hits to second—two out you say?
Look out for Jimmie—he'll save the day.
Jim looks 'em over—off for a walk;
Oak gets a high one—makes people talk. Loioell to bat—the last of the nine;
Got a nice single—sure that teas fine.
Start it again, Web—up to the bat;
Get a two-bagger—you can do that.
Caught by the pitcher—no use to run;
Out to the field, boys—score five to one.
