Haskell is very fortunate in having a very efficient and
able School Board - one of the very best in all of West Texas.
The Board is made up of seven of the most prominent and influential
business and professional men of Haskell. Every one of them has made
a success of his own business. They have put the same time, consideration,
and judgment into the affairs of these schools that they have put into
the management of their own business affairs. It has been through their
wise direction that Haskell has secured her fine high school building,
which is a credit to this town or any other town.  Since this Board has been in office,
the Haskell Schools have forged to the front more rapidly than during
any other period of their history. These men, though very busy men,
have given unselfishly much of their time and thought
to the welfare of these schools. We high school pupils and the
citizenship of Haskell owe much to these public-spirited men.



There could be no end to all the reasons; but because of his honesty
and devotion to duty, with a genial and abiding sense of humor, and
because of his kindly and individual interest in every student, the Senior
Class deems it a privilege to pay this tribute of honor esteem, the
dedication of the 1924 "THISTLE", to Mr. M. B. Lebo,
whom they call friend.


        Word of Appreciation

The entire student body of the Haskell High School deeply appreciate
the help and encouragement and support given the Senior Class by the
teachers, the business men and our parents in their efforts to get out
this book. This year book reflects the life of the
Haskell High School  in all its various phases.

An earnest effort has been made to give due consideration to all the
activities that make our high school life interesting and dear to each
one of us. In after years this book will bring to us hallowed memories
and sweet joys. It should remind us of our youth when life held out to
us dreams and ideals of a lofty and inspiring nature, the achievements
of which will be largely due to the influence and help of the dear old
Haskell High School if we are true to the lessons it has attempted to
teach us. If we fail in achieving these ideals, it will not be the fault of
the Haskell High School; it will be our own fault. May God's richest
blessings be upon her future and upon those that take our places.

 Your Superintendent,
