Reno, NV High School Alumni Notes 1914-1917
THE ALUMNI of Reno High School are certainly scattered to the sixteen points of the compass this year, and it would be an utterly impossible task to obtain information concerning the occupation and whereabouts of all of the hundreds of men and women who once followed the Red and Blue. So we have here listed only those of whom we are fortunate enough to have some information.
Reno High School may well be proud of her representation in the army. Some of the Old Boys who are already in the army in France are: Loyd McCubbin, Alton Glass, Lee McCubbin, Alfred Thomas, Charles Short, Oliver Layman, Fran Martin, Darrel Dunkle, Waite Bruce, Howard Fletcher, Lester Jones.
Those who are in the army and will in all probability soon be "Over There" are: William Melarkey, Winfield Higgins, John Harrison, Everett Layman, Paul Barker, James Cusick, William Fife.
Aubrey McCarthy is in the navy, and Fred Drury and Robert Bringham are attending West Point. We are represented at Annapolis by Elmer Snare and Clark Green.
Three former students of Reno High School have already given their lives in the service of their country, they are: Robert Carter, Neil Taylor and Tom Edsall.
The class of '17 is represented at the University of Nevada by Ruth Billinghurst, Russell Boardman, Alice Boynton, Charles Chatfield, Fred Cunningham, Doris de Hart, Gladys Dunkle, Lulu Hawkins, Frances Howard, Virginia Higgins, Margaret Hunkin, Frances Jones, William Martin, Clinton Melarkey, Luella Murray, Lois Smythe, Hazel Hall, Alice Johnson, Hallie Organ, Helen Wogan and Mildred Twomey.
The members of the class of '16 attending the university are: John Belford, Herbert Bruce, Albert Cahlan, Viva Campbell, Edna Claussen, Charles Frisch, Mary Harrington, Tom Jones, Edna Short and Adele Armstrong. Clement Caffrey and Dorothy Higgins are the only representatives of the Class of '15, while the Class of '14 has five of their members among the graduates at the U. of N.. this year, they are: Magdalena Bertschey, Howard Browne, Myrtle Cameron, Alice Robbins and Stanley Pargellis.
Mildred Levy '15, is taking a kindergarten course in San Francisco; Thelma Coffin, '16, is at Stanford ; Hadley Beedle, '17, is at Oakland Tech, and Marshall Orr, '17, is going to Pomona College. Dave Boyce, '15, is attending Ann Arbor.
Reno High School is represented on the Nevada and California teaching force by the following : Aileen Hooten, assistant at Babcock Kindergarten; Elsie Humphrey, at Yerington; Mila Coffin, at Verdi; Neva Friberg, at Reno; Alice Meffley at Reno; Selma Sielaff, at Floriston, California; Georgiana Young, at Elko; Mary Martin, at Hobart Mills, California; Fern Douglas, at Minden, and Josephine Legate, at Huffakers.
Probably our most noted alumna is Miss Anne Martin, the first woman in the United States to run for the national senate. She has already announced her candidacy and the high school will watch her campaign next fall with interest.
