Palacios High School
1922 - 1925
The Home Economics Girls Club
The Home Economics Girls Club was organized by Miss Bessie B.
Jennings here in Palacios in 1924. Louise Partain was elected
president, Oma Greene vice president and Johnnie Grant, secretary
and treasurer. It was all new to us, but we readily fell into line
and had regular club meetings.
Feb. 29, H. E. Girls had their style show. We were all tired to death by the time we got through parading, singing and acting silly. For all of this the show was a success. After it was over we served several hundred people in the basement.
May 6, The H. E. Girls enjoyed a picnic supper on the beach in the B. Y. P. U. grounds, Tuesday. Had a delightful time, and every[thing] in the world to eat.

The J. T. Club
This club was organized in 1924 and the two letters J. T. are true?
symbols of every girls heart. We elected no officers. Those who
spoke the loudest were those who usually did the ruling, and so we
were a happy, go-lucky bunch.
No. 18, Had a party at my house, did the usual things, told jokes,
danced and made candy.
Oct. 31, Was the most important for our clubs meetings. After a big
dance at Liz's we all came down to my house and tried to have a
slumber party. Had anything but. Told jokes, played tricks on every
one all night. Also had a J. H. G. medicine show.

Activities Recorded By Nellie in Her Memory Book
June 19, 23 A bunch of us went on a wiener roast, and a hay
ride combined. Got lost from our chaperone (intentionally) and went
to a dance at Ashby, but got 'scared' and came back to Harriman
Beach to roast our wienies.
Dec. 29 - A bunch of us girls went hiking today. We left town about 11:30 and walked five miles before stopping to cook our dinner. Had a hard time finding wood, but finally our bacon was cooked. We arrived back in foot sore and so tired.
Feb. 25,/24 Had a marshmallow roast on the B. Y. P. U. grounds.
April 1st - Nearly all high school met at the Christian Church & piled into two trucks and a car and played "hookey" for the day. We went out to Caranchua for the picnic, but instead of spreading lunch we all rustled for our selves. We had a day of it and arrived back in town, our minds now busy phantoming the punishment we were to receive.
July 22 - Bought a lot of junk in town including a watermelon and mounting two donkies we went out and had lunch.
Aug. 12 - A hamburger fry!! Beatrice came by and told me I was invited and I lost no time in accepting. Played games, ate hamburgers and drank lemonade, which was all the excitement until Margaret and Angus decided they would roll into the bonfire which caused plenty excitement.
Aug. 18 - Had a swimming party and then supper on the beach.
Sept. 10 - Went to a kid party on the B. Y. P. U. grounds, but I didn't dress like a kid.
Dec. 7 - Had supper on the B. Y. P. U. grounds.
Dec. 11 - Helen and Angus had a birthday party.
Feb. 17 - Had a box supper at the school house and we had quite a lot of fun watching the boxes being auctioned off.
School was dismissed Monday in observance of Texas Independence Day,
and picnics seemed to be in order. One of the most enjoyable was had
by the Senior Class and several others, chaperoned by Mrs. Pearl
Shuey. Autos carried the happy fun loving young people to Hurd's
landing an ideal place for a picnic. A most appetizing lunch served
in real picnic style put the finishing touch to a day spent enjoying
nature's handiwork as well as outdoor games and contests.
