The Idaho Admission Act provided that 100,000
acres of public land should be set apart for State
normal schools. As this act further provided that
none of this land should be sold for less than 3410
per acre, little income has been received from this
source, but each year the amount is increasing.
The second State Legislature in 1893 located two
State normal schools, one at Albion and one at
Lewiston. It provided that each school should re-
ceive one-half of the proceeds from the State nor-
mal school lands, but made no appropriation for
the support of the schools. However, the citizens
of Cassia County raised 353,000 by popular sub-
scription and built the old rock building which is
now part of the main building. In this building
Rev. Charles Lyle conducted a school during the
winter of 1893-94. In 1894, Prof. F. A. Swanger
was elected president, and in September, 1894,
opened the school with one assistant and 23 stu-
In 1895, the Legislature passed, over theigov-
ernor's veto, a bill appropriating bonds with a
face value of 9,575,000 to the use of the two nor-
rnal schools. These bonds were sold at a good
premium and procured 346,760.63 for the use of
the Albion State Normal School. ln 1895-96, the
main building was erected. In 1901, the old dor-
mitory was built. ln 1905, 329,000 was appro-
priated for a second dormitory, and the citizens of
Albion donated five acres of ground to increase
the size of the campus. The new dormitory is
now occupied by the young ladies, and the old by
the young gentlemen.
The recent opening of the Twin Falls and Mini-
doka tracts makes Albion a most desirable place
for a school from the standpoint of population as
well as for other reasons. The liberal appropria-
tion by the last Legislature, secured through the
tireless efforts of Senator George A. Day and Re-
presentative Harry T. Wcst has made possible
large increases i11 the faculty and the equipment
of the school. The town of Albion has united its
public school with the Model School and a com-
plete Model School building has been erected for
the training department. This gives the school
special facilities for training teachers, facilities
unexcelledin the northwest.

MISS S. CHAMBERLAIN
Miss S. Belle Chamberlain, State Supt. Publlcilnstruction, Ex-officio Member Board of
Trustees, Albion State Normal School.
Miss Chamberlain has been connected with the State Superlntendent's otllce tor
several years. So efhclent was her work as assistant State Superintendent during the
term of Mrs. May L. Scott Worthman, that in obedience to the popular demand, she
was nominated for State Superintendent on the Republican ticket, and elected by a
large majority in the lyear 1906 and re- elected in the year 1908.
She has done a very great amount of good for the schools of the state of Idaho by
her effective work in her department. She has always been much interested in the
affairs of the Albion State Normal and has done much to further the growth of the
Buarh nt Iltrustzes
Tl1e Albion State Normal School is very fortunate in having
a body of representative Idaho citizens as its board of trustees.
The personell of the board is as follows:
Hon. A. Lounsbury, Albion, CTerm expires March 5, 1915.1
Hon. C. J. Lisle, Richfield, fTerm expires March 5, 19155
Hon. L. Hansen, Rock Creek, Term expires March 5, 19135
Hon. Ji. T. Pence, Boise, fTO1'lIl expires March 5, 1913i
Hon. Jos. Y. Haight, Albion, fTerm expires March 5, 19.11.J
Hon. W. N. Shilling, Rupert, QTerm expires March 5, 19111
Mr. Lounsbury has been a resident of Cassia county for a
number of years, and has occupied many prominent otiices
in both city and county government. At present he is county
treasurer and Mayor of Albion. He has always been a great
friend of the school and did particularly effective Work for it
before the legislature last Winter. I
Mr. Lisle, While a comparatively new man in the state, has the
true Idaho spirit and takes a great interest in the affairs of the
school. He is joint editor of the Idaho Leader and Richfield
Recorder with Mr. E. T. Barber, formerly a member of the
faculty of this school, and is making an enviable reputation as
a newspaper man.
Mr. Hansen has been president of the board ever since his
first appointment, five years ago, and no man has taken a great-
er interest in the scl1ool. Mr. Hansen 's standing at home is best
shown by the fact that for thirty consecutive years he has been
justice of the peace in his home precinct.
Mr. Pence has been a member of the board for six years and
has done very much toward making it the successful school
which it is. Mr. Pence was elected Mayor of Boise on the Dem-
ocratic ticket this spring, he being the only democrat elected,
as Boise is republican by an immense majority. He and his
partner, ex-Governor J. T. Morrison, have a very successful law
practice in the capital city.
Mr. Haight, also, has been a member of the board for six
years during all of which time he has filled the difficult position
of secretary of the board. Mr. Haight has been prominent in
the government of the county for many years and has been
county auditor, recorder and clerk of the court for the past six
years, his term expiring in 1911.
Mr. Shilling is an old time resident of the Northwest and has
had much experience in public business at different times
having been a member of the governing board of the following
public institutions: University of Utah, Ogden Public Schools,
Idaho Industrial School and Albion State Normal. Mr. Shil-
ling has had a varied experience having come to the Northwest
as a telegraph operator in the early days. He sent in the first
news of the Custer Massacre. Some of his experiences with the
Indians are particularly interesting.

Mae Isaacson, a bright, beaming Senior,
was born in the East, but early left the
plains and determined to make her home
in the mountains. The climate and alti-
tude wrought great changes in her, all for
the best. Soon after arriving at her new
home she became a leader of society and
a school enthusiast. Her interest in edu-
cation carried her through three success-
ful years in the Bellevue High School.
Then, imbued with the desire to become a
teacher she left for Albion, bringing with
her good recommendations and much
praise from the Bellevue faculty.
While she has been here she has proved
herself worthy the reputation she always
carries and which we hope will continue
through life. She is liked by everyone, a
strenuous worker and a pleasant compan-
ion. Even the children adore her and for
this reason her success as a teacher ls
plainly evident. All were glad to see her
come. All will be sorry to see her go. But
wherever she ls or wherever she goes our
best wishes are with her.

MISS FLORENCE REA
ma. ar, -
Miss Florence Rea entered the Albion
State Normal School in the fall of 1908.
She had graduated at the Iowa State Col-
lege in 1907 with the degree of B. S. and
was a teacher in the Pocatello ,Public
School in 1907-1908. She dld not have
heavy work so when she was offered a
position in the Buhl Schools she accepted
and taught from January untll April and
with marked success. She has accepted
a position in the Pocatello Schools for next
year: She is business manager of the
annual and vice-president of the class.
"The man worth while is the man who can
When everything goes dead wrong."
In 1906 Mr. Willard entered our school
for the nrst time. In a short time he left
to accept a position in the Elba School
where he was a marked success. This year
he again entered the school. His credits
from the Cheney Normal, which he at-
tended, placed him in the Senior Class
with light work for the year. During
the year he taught a four months school
at Elba and returned to graduate with
his class. He is energetic and enthusias-
tic. He enjoys talking, running bluffs, and
working people. If necessary he can work
himself. He has won success on both
gridiron and diamond. He is very popular
and during his stay at the Normal has
won many friends and made no enimles.

Senior Qtlass Zlaistorp
Freshmen come and Seniors go,
Sophmores sleep and Juniors crow.
Such is life in school no matter what the locality. The life and
work of each class is so incorporated in that of the others, that
it Would be impossible to compile a class history without refer-
ence to all. The Freshmen, Sophmores and Juniors lean upon
the Seniors as younger brothers do upon the older. So, too, the
Seniors derive much good from the lower but steadily rising
The chief source of this beneiicent influence is found in the
opposition existing between classes. In fact the Seniors of
Naughty-Nine only laugh at the wily Juniors who think to
overthrow them by constant work and strategy. Little do the
cooing Juniors think that their efforts furnish the material on
which the Seniors grow and stretch above them. Thus we say,
"All hail to the intrigues of Freshmen, Sophmores and Jun-
In September, 1908, when the A. S. N. S. began another year 's
work, everyone looked around for some benign Senior on whom
he might hurl his thunder bolts. But such a personage was
hard to find as another year had been added to the course and
it was a question whether there would be a graduating class at
all. But yes, four bright-eyed seniors soon greeted the eyes of
the beseeching students and faculty-four diligent and energe-
tis students who were destined to do much lin shaping the
events of the coming year. Early in September the 'first class
meeting was held at which plans were arranged for the year 's
work. To this meeting tl1e Normal owes the publication of the
first annual in the scl1ool's history. The class acting with high
aspirations, planned a paper equally as good as those got
out by the more fully experienced institutions. With Arthur
Willard as editor in chief, Florence Rea business manager, Joe
Gibbs and May Isaacson supervisors of correspondence the Work
of the paper Went gradually on. It was a great task indeed for
such a small class, but by holding regular class meetings, en-
couraging one another and Working with an indomitable will
a successful paper was the fruit of their untiring efforts. The
entire school contributed wonderfully to the success of the an-
nual and thus showed their appreciation of the class.
In school athletics the Senior class was Well represented, both
boys playing on the foot-ball and base-ball teams. In the many
games undertaken and victories Won, the members of the class
assisted greatly in bringing glory to the school and never once
failed to uphold their reputation for integrity.
In the declamatory and oratorical contest Arthur Willard and
Florence Rea took important positions and defended the honor
of the class.
This class being the most advanced in school, began the
year 's social activities by treating the Juniors and members of
the faculty to a glorious spread. The evening was profitably
and enjoyably spent as were many others following in succes-
The class being so small, party diversions were impossible
and all Worked harmoniously together. To this fact is attri-
buted the successful culmination of everything entered upon
by the '09 Class. Of course it has had its ups and downs
as all heretofore have had, and all hereafter Will. Yet When-
ever thrust back it has striven to regain the front and so it will
continue until the term closes. JOE GIBBS

The Qctihities of the Eluniur Glass
The Juniors are all very energetic and the class
has been well represented in contests both literary
and athletic and leaves a record which it is by no
means ashamed of.
We will speak first of the literary work, dividing
it into three parts: the debating, the oratorical and
the declamatory contests. In debating three of
our members, James Mahoney, Triphosa Pratt and
Lyman Smith won places on the two first teams
and Miss Florence Pratt took an active part in the
In oratory Mr. Mahoney has the most brilliant
record, having won first place in the southeastern
part of the state in the fall, and represented the
Normal at Boise. This spring he also won first
place in the school in the contest of original ora-
tions. Last year Mr. Smith won first place in the
oratorical contest and Mr. Hagar second place.
Miss Chadwick also represented the class very well
in this contest.
In the declamatory contests Miss Ackerley has
received the most honors. She was awarded the
gold medal in the contest two years ago last spring
and also last spring, and last fall she represented
the school in dramatic work in the first inter-
schoolastic contest, and has won second place
Miss Florence Pratt stands next, having repre-
sented the Normal last fall at Twin Falls in the
humorous declamatory contest. Edna Barber has
also been interested in contest work and twice
has been awarded second place. ,
On the athletic field Mr. Mahnken and Mr. Ha-
gar stand out very prominently. Both played on
the foot-ball team that won the championship two
years ago and championship of the southeastern
part this year. They also played on the winning
base-ball team two years ago and on last year's
On the basket-ball team this year which made
such an excellent record and lacked only one goal
of winning the championship of the southern part
of the state, Miss Florence Pratt played forward
and Miss Turner guard. Miss Tripllosa Pratt and
Miss Ackerly played on the second team.
Among other interests of the school are the Y.
W.'C. A. of which Miss I-Iinchlilf was president
but was lately replaced by Miss Triphosa Pratt,
also the Glee Club, Misses Fox, Ackerly and Bar-
ber are members and Miss Fox is also the pianist
for that musical body.

Come, O thou greatest weapon, muse
And tell to all the glad old story
Of the Senior Class of 1910.
So to thy Work, old Pen.
We Juniors cannot boast of having been tutored
by the Albion State Normal since we left the Gram-
mar grade, as some will do, at least the majority
of us cannot, for we came from distant schools
where we grew up under a familiar regieme and
Hnally bursting the bonds that bound us to the
old home place, we fled far away to a distant val-
The noble Harrison stands supreme and proud.
Ruling like a lord the surrounding plains,
Yet yielding water to man 's benefit.
Here the weary Wanderers stopped and found a
school, whose portals ever stood open to the thirst-
Our class soon became the leaders in the school,
by their devotion to study and contest work.
The Juniors ever obtained. admiring glances
from the failing eyes of the Seniors, and as for the
little Freshies, they simply adored us and endeav-
ored to fulfill all our simplest wishes as tho they
were imperative commands, but such a position is
not suddenly reached.
The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight.
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night.
This we have accomplished and this we mean to
keep. Since entering the State Normal great
changes have passed over this body of students,
N o longer differing in manners, customs and edu-
cation, they have been brought together as a unit-
ed whole which acts together in time of need. If
important questions arise the Juniors in a body
can decide it. Even the astute Seniors ask advice
of the younger grade.
But this is not all. We have become possessed
with an idea of becoming worthy pedogogues to
Idaho 's growing gems and when this body of stu-
dents shall have entered the field as teachers a
tremendous revolution will be felt.
Education is our theme and Excelsior is our mot-
Our history does not involve complex situations,
nor is it finished, in fact, we are just beginning to
make history. We have envolved from humbler
situations and positions and day by day we are
going forward. We are just in our prime, full of
life, vigorous and eager to accomplish great things
while our battle cry, "Ever Onward," increases
our desire to attain some great height from which
we may look down on the world of men, and say:
"Reach the height that we have reached."
"Make the fight that we have made and gather in
the pearls." ' '

Inside the Normal's red brick walls,
The Juniors study hardg
The class, a mighty one is she,
With members large and small
And the minds of this mighty class
Are great now one and all.
Our class is quick, and bright, and strongg
Our faces like the sun:
Our brows are wet with honest sweat ,
Our marks are number one.
We look the whole school in the face,
For we 'pony'-not like some.
Week in, week out, from morn 'till night
You can hear of Juniors' workg
You can hear them saying far' and wide:
"Fourthies never known to shirk
Like the Seniors who think they 'll squeeze thru
Without working like a 'Turk,'
With a wise, unholy smirk.
We go at noonday to the hall
And sit in regions low
We hear the 'profs' give good advice,
And hear the murmurs slow
Of third years grumbling at their lot
As third years do, you know.
It sounds to us like Freshman cries.
And Worthless are their tears!
VVe need not think of them once more,
Nor how life 's ships they'll steer,
For We will sail as Juniors should:
Straight o'er life 's restless meer.
Toiling, rejoicing, sorrowingg
Onward thru life We go.
Each morning sees some task begun,
Each evening sees its close.
Something attempted, something done,
We earn a'night's repose.
Thanks, thanks to thee, our worthy 'profs
For the lessons thou hast taught.
Thus, at the serious school of life
Our fortunes must be Wrought.
For on our characters thou hast stamped
Such burning facts and thoughts.
At all the boys
When Joe comes
Smiles whether you smile or
When they win a game.
When his Payette letter comes.
At the mirror.
When she feels like it.
When Good- comes
When there's a da:.ce
At all times
From force ot habit
When she sees a boy
When no one sees her
When he takes someone else
For a bluff.
When they don't
When it is delayed.
At the world in general.
If she hasn't her lessons
When she does not :ee him.
At the parlor rules
When one is not around
Very softly, indeed.
Out of tune.
While he reads it.
For the Emos.
Once in a while.
In the Glee Club.
With the wide-awake eleven.

To get to class in time

When she can't talk to him
When he don't succeed
At the price of diamonds.

When her name appears.
When she falls.

If she has to
To relieve her feelings.

The Third Year class has its share of partici-
pants in the school activities. In basket ball We
have been ably represented by Eva Minear and
Vada Helsley. In the boys' team by Ed Jones,
who was a very strong player. '
On the diamond We claim James Hitt at second
base, Ray Pierson, short stop, Ed Jones, center
field and Ray Bedke substitute. Out of the five
boys who are in our class, four are athletes and
good ones too.
In the debating team a third year student was
one of the alternates. .

Glass of '11
On the sixth day of September, '05 punctually at
9:00 a. m. there assembled in what is now Room J
the class of '11, VVe were forty-four in number
ranging in age from twelve to eighteen. We look-
ed and acted much the same as any other eighth-
grade class only we were accompanied by that
feeling of awe which every one has when first en-
tering a Normal school. We were fortunate enough
to have Miss Hansen for a teacher. She was the
best, the cleverest and most patient woman on
earth. She left us on Thanksgiving and her place
was taken by Miss Mark. She remained with us
the rest of the year.
It is a mystery how we "preps" ever lived thru
those nine long months without being trampled in-
to an early grave by the seniors. We were noth-
ing in their eyes and the only reason they per-
mitted us to exist at all was, they were ashamed
to let the world know they had even taken notice
of such inferior beings. We "preps" had a worse
fate than any class before us and no more such
treatment will ever be administered, for the
"preps " are now on a footing with all.
.The majority of the class finished the eighth
grade in the spring of '06 and Went joyously home
for vacation with wonderful dreams of the fresh-
The next September a few of the old members
came back and a great many new ones to help bear
the burden of a freshmen class. There were thirty
nine of us, from every part of the state. Of course
We were supposed to represent every thing in the
verdant shades, but We organized early in October,
electing Don Sndweeks, president. A lavender
and white banner was purchased, several yells
learned and a motto adopted. We were now recog-
nized as "fit to live" and reside on the same lad-
der of fame with the seniors, though of course a
rung or two lower.
September '07 saw only a few of the originally
large class back again at the Normal. Our Presi-
dent did not return, but was down on the Twin
Falls tract dreaming of the happy home that was
soon to be his. Mr. Snodgrass was elected Presi-
dent and has remained leader of our band since.
This year passed in the ordinary manner and we
parted in June, wondering how many of our class
mates we should ever see again.
The next September, '08, only .eleven of the for-
ty-four beginners remained, five boys and six girls.
They solemnly took up the work of the third year
and with a patient look on their faces are hoping
some day to graduate.

A GROUP OF FRESHMEN
Jfrzsbman Qtass iiaisturp
'Twas on the eighth of September, in the year of Nineteen
Hundred and Eight, when the Fresman Class, composed of thir-
ty happy members, enrolled in the Albion State Normal School.
Each face glowed with the thought of five years of life, that
were to be enriched by all the woes, experiences, and tragedies
which life at school alone can bring, while in eacl1 bright eye
burned the desire to out-do in the race any previous Freshman
Class in the annals of history.
Early in the year the Freshies met and adopted as their
class motto, "Honesta Quam Splendida' '-Colors: Crimson and
white, their flower the beautiful carnation. They unanimously
elected as President Arthur Haight, Secretary, Vera Pierson,
Treasurer, Price Sears.
In athletics the Freshies have done themselves proud. Hav-
ing two members on the first Girls' Basket Ball team, and
a well organized team in Boys' Basket Ball. They won the
championship over the Preps, by a score of sixteen to nine. And
the Sophs cancelled a game with them, showing they feared
their dander. '
The Freshmen have in their midst a Milton, who promises
to tread in greater paths of fame than Milton, the poet ever
dreamed of. There is not one among this thrifty band of
workers who, in the years to come, will not look back with fond
pride upon his class of Nineteen Eight.

MODEL SCHOOL BUILDING
GROUP OF PREPARATORY STUDENTS
We, the preparatory department of 1909, have
had a very successful year's Work. We have a
large class of industrious patriotic pupils, and We
feel that our Uncle Samuel and the Gem State of
the Mountains, as Well as tl1e Albion Normal
training school, have not heard the last of us. The
class spirit shown here has taught us the great les-
sons of loyalty and responsibility which We shall
need in our normal years.
Individually, we, the members of the prepara-
tory department, are not Without ambitions, and
ideals. Among us are those who aspire to be mer-
chants, book keepers, farmers, druggists, engin-
eers, music teachers, artists, nurses. Others Wish to
be traveling news paper reporters, lawyers, lee-
turers, statesmen, and one Wishes to be known as
In closing We desire to thank our teachers who
have so patiently administered to our educational
needs, as a preparatory department and hope We
shall meet them all next year.
And verily we say unto you our future shall be
successful and bright.
As our past has ben triumphant and right.

EDW. T. BARBER
The man who is responsible for the splendid ap-
pearance of this annual. Mr. Barber was a meni-
ber of the faculty from 1901 to 1905 and was con-
nected with the school longer than any other pro-
fessor at the time he severed his connection with
the school to go into the newspaper bnsinessol'
which he has made a great success. He is now a
lflelllljel' of the Firm of Lisle 8 Barber, publishers
of the Hld21ll0 Leader" and the "Richfield Recor-
der." There is no one better known to the alumni
of the early years of the school.
PROF. R-. C. THOMPSON
Member of Faculty 1905-1908
N ow Member of Faculty of State University
When Prof. R. C. Thompson resigned his
position as Instructor of Latin and Ger-
man in the Albion State Normal School, to
accept an offer from the University of Ne-
vada, both Faculty and students felt the
loss to be well nigh irreparable. His unus-
ual versatility had made him invaluable.
No man in the state excelled him along
his special lines, Latin and History. N0
other man had done so much'for the Nor-
mal in building up its reputation for an i11-
vincible foot-ball team, possessed of irre-
proachable honor. He did more than any
other man to establish the Inter-scholastls
League of Southern Idaho, and was its
President until he left the state. He was-
it not the originator-at least a mighty up-
holder of what is known as "Albion Spirit"
--a spirit of honor undeflled, courage 11n-
daunted, and persistence unlimited. Per-
haps no finer thing can be said of Mr.
Thompson than this-that the least sha-
dow of an untruth, in any form whatso-
ever, is absolutely ipmossible in him. Add
to this abroad, fine essence or Christianity,
and you will understand how his influence
for good can not easily be paralled.
He entered the Normal as Instructor in
History and Latin in September, 1905. In
1907 an increased Facility made it possi-
ble for him to drop the History, and teach
Latin and German. In every interest of
the Institution, he was most active and
energetic, taking an especially useful part
in the guidance of the two literary socie-
ties throughout his stay. In all contest
whatsoever, athletic or academic, he was
a most earnest and efficient worker-young
debaters and orators owing him a big debt
We are heartily grateful for the inspira-
tion he left with us, and predict success
for him, wherever he is, whatever he does.

CARD OF THANKS.
In behalf of the Senior Class I, as their only survivor, wish
to thank the students and members of the Faculty who so kindly
assisted them in the publication of "The Sage" and also those
who assisted in the sickness and death of the two Seniors who
died of fatigue and the third who was a victim of the teaching
It has been a problem Why Professor Stenquist did not take
His usual English lesson Thursday, October 22, '08, but We
Have found out that Prof. Bauman had the preparatory
Students in Miss Van Boskirk's room.
One of the Freshman girls asked Mr. Hunter if he was lone-
Some and he said, "No, did you want to come down and
Talk to me?"

Mr. Axline in political economy-"Miss Isaacson, what is a
trunk line railroad?"
Miss I-"lt's a railroad that carries trunks."
A change is good for every one. That is the reason Edna
Barber changed from one WV ard to the other Ward.
The other morning in English Miss Van Boskirk called on True-
lock Walie to explain the different uses of 'like' and 'love.' He
gave the following ones:-' 'I like Pratt, but I love Rumbaugh. "
MES Smith-"Truelock, which girl shall I get for you, Pratt or
Truellcick-"Oh, either one, they would both be delighted to go

her bed for some time apparently asleep: "Fox, wake up, it's
time for the lights to flicker. " '
Maud :-' ' Oh, I wasn't asleep, you know I cant sleep in tl1e day-
time." - p
Wanted-Some one to wash Miss Isaacson's waist on Sunday
evening-to have her picture taken in.

While in the library of the Normal the other day I overheard
this conversation between two girls of the dormitory:
"How do you select stories?" asked one. "I have adopted a
very simple method," said the other. "As I run over the latest
things offered here, I glance at the last chapter. If l find the
rain softly and sadly falling over two lonely graves, I know I
dont want the storyg but if the morning sun is glimmering over
bridal robes of white satin, I know the novel is all right."
There are two girls in the Dormitory wl1o are great rivals, and
this is a specimen of how they jolly each other now and then:-
Eva-"Do you think it 's true that people catch anything
through kissing? ' '
Ellen-"Oh, I dont think so. See how often you 've been kissed
and you 've never caught anybody yet. "

Society Colors-Crimson and Gold.
Motto-"Non Scholae Sed Vitae."
The Philomathean Society, though having fewer
members than the sister society, has the older and
more earnest workers, and for that reason the
standard of work is considered very high. In the
past few years since the society has been doing its
best work, it has usually produced the majority of
the seniors and this year the senior class is com-
posed entirely of Philomatheans.
After the hall was given to the society by the
school, the members began in earnest to improve
the appearance of it. The first improvement was
a piano won by the members in a track meet, when
Dr. Ellis was President of the school. In a few
years the hall was furnished with a beautiful vel-
vet carpet and at the same time papered with dark
green ingrain to match the carpet. The boys then
saw need of a president's table and secretary's
desk and using their skill in manual training
fitted out the society with these. In the year 1907,
the society was able to buy a frieze, The Della
Robbia Singing Boys, which now makes the so-
ciety hall the prettiest in the building. In the
spring of 1908 new curtains were purchased, thus
making the hall complete in every respect.
Each year a play is given by a few members of
the society chosen by the executive committee.
Our plays are always up to the standard of the
other work done in the society.
The "Philo" members engage in all contests
along literary lines and always win a place of
honor. The only interestate contest ever won for
the Albion State Normal School was won, in a de-
clamatory contest at Pocatello in 1907, by a Philo-
mathean, Melvin Read, who is now attending Utah
Agricultural college. The banner won by him
now hangs in the President's office. The humor-
ous contest was won by a "Philo," Florence Pratt.
This year there were two teams chosen to repre-
sent the school in debating. Two "Philos" and one
"Emo" on the affirmative. Two "Emos" and
one "Philo" on the negative.
The Philomathean society has great prospects
for the future. The new clubs, debating and boost-
ing, will be joined by many of the members of
the society who will hold an influential part in
them. As the future prospects for our school are
large so we are certain our society will grow in
To the 1BiJiIns
There are societies of fame
That are spread the Wide World thru,
But there are really very few
That by the Philos are not tame.
This society's most noted
For its earnestness and strength
And its essays of great length,
Which everywhere are knownand quoted.
We also have some hot debates
On subjects current and of interest,
By debators of the very best-
Tho they sometimes cut their dates.
Besides debates are declamations,
Some given with great declamatic skill,
Some humorous and others still,
And sometimes great orations.
We also study the great men
Who today and days gone by
Have given the Wherewithal to ply
Our trades as noble men and Women.
Then some of our society Work
Is given up to Worthy boasting,
For there 's no lazy roasting
On the fields and by the brooks.
When in Albion there is a boom
And We know that 'tis not vain,
But some day there will be a train
To take us to a distant hom.e -
Some, inspired by the Muse
Give us verses well Worth While.
Hut do not think they're in this style,
For 'Ii have not yet found my Muse.
There 's also music very sweet,
Furnished by the dilterent members
Who kindly give us special Il'l111llJ0l"S--
But well for us these tunes are fleet.
And then we have a critic, too,
Who is usually very gracious,
But sometimes when We make him n
He tells us what We ought to do
To make our work more serious,
And censures us in words severe,
But still We like him, and revere
The patience he has with us.
To take the Philos all in all,
I think they are the very best
With which tl1is world was ever blest
And may their standard never fall.

EMERSON IAN HALL
Zbistorp of the Qlimersnnian Svnrietp
The Emersonian society, which is the oldest so-
ciety in the school was organized in the year 1896
with only fourteen charter members. The first
meeting was called in the first floor of the old
rock building, and here they elected the first set
of officers, the first president being John 0. liowe,
who has taken a course in the dental department
of the Northwestern University, of Chicago, Illi-
nois, and is now practicing and is a successful
dentist of Oakley, Idaho. The Hrst secretary was
Miss Elison CMrs. Estella Haightl who was an
earnest worker while she was connected with the
society. The following are the names of the char-
Stephen Parke, John O. llowe, .Tohn Clook, Ber-
tha Hansen, Edith Howell, Arthur Miller, lilva
Conover, Maude Kelley, Reuben Beecher, May
Leavitt, George Cook, liee Fisher, Flstella Elison
and Ada Rice.
Mr. Parke is at the present time Principal of
the Twin Falls High School and has gained for
himself an excellent reputation. Mr. Fisher is a
lawyer and 1 know that all Emersonians wish him
Miss Bertha Hansen was the lirst one of the
charter members to graduate from the school. She
was graduated in the year 1898, being the only one
in the class. She taught for some time but later
served as deputy auditor and recorder of Cassia
county for two years.
Before the society was organized there was an
elocution class to which the students belonged,
and it was a ruling of the school that each student
should give some literary work in the chapel at
different times during the year. But when the so-
ciety was organized those joining it were not re-
quired to give the literary work in the chapel and
as the Emersonian system of elocution was used in
the school at that time, that name was chosen for
the society, and the members of today are more
than pleased with the appropriate name which
The society from its very beginning has been
an honor to the school and there is no doubt but
that it will continue to be, so long as there is such
a thing a sthe Albion State Normal School. The
society first adopted for its rules "Robert's Rules
of Order," which they continued to use until 1901,
when they changed to "Cushings, Boiled Down."
But since the Emersonians have the reputation of
being wide awake and always having the best of
everything, they soon discovered their mistake in
changing rules, and in 1904 reverted to Robert 's
Wlieii the Philomathean society was organized
in the fall of 1897, all that were old members of the
lilmersonian society remained as such. From the
remainder of the student body there were as many
members selected according to their standard in
the school for the Philomathean as there were
members in the Emersonian.
All that were left oven after this selection were
divided alphabetically, that is, if there were two
students whose names began with "B" one be-
came an Emersonian and the other a Philomath-
Our society at the beginning met in the rock
building, and from there they went to different
rooms in the main building, meeting one Friday
in the room in which the piano was, and rendering
a literary program, and the next Friday in one of
the other rooms, and on such days the program
would consist of al debate. But we are proud that
we new have a hall of our own where we can meet
each Friday evening and also that it ranks second
to none in the school for beauty and comfort. It
was during the year of 1907-1908 that it was fresh-
ly papered and new curtains and window shades
were purchased. Our piano, bought in 1906-1907
is now paid for. These improvements add greatly
to the beauty of our hall. Next year we will be
able to purchase a new carpet. All will then be
During the last two years the membership of
the society has increased greatly. The members
are, a number of them, young, but they do good
work and are loyal to the society.
In the last year the contest work, such as de-
bating, declamation, oratory, etc., has been chiefly
won by the Emersonians. In the debating team,
1 the champion team of southern Idaho! two were
Emersoniansg of the Declamatory team two were
Emersoniansg and the winner of the original ora-
torical contest was an Emersonian. This shows
that the "Emos',' are not slow, and, altho two
years ago many were young members, that they
can "do things." Of the Albion State Normal Or-
chestra fifteen of the twenty are Emersonians. of
the Albion State Normal Cadet Band ten of the
nineteen are Emersonians. See what a part they
play in the school!
We are noted for our splendid plays, one of
which is given each year by some of the members
who are chosen by the instructor. These plays
are given for the purpose of supporting the so-
ciety and improving the hall.
Our present critic is Prof. Knipe, who is a great
worker for the good of the society and encourages
the members a great deal. Our critics do not stay
with us but ten weeks and we only hope that our
next critic pleases us as well as Prof. Knipe.
Miss Ellen Larsen is our present president and
she has shown herself fully competent to hold this
This short history is intended to give the reader
some idea of the working of the Emersonian so-
ciety and of the progress we are continually mak-

"Tell me," said Goeth, "What your young men
of twenty are thinking about, and I will tell you
the future of the state." Men in public life have
attested again and again to the value of debating
Societies as one of the most effective means to
train young citizens in civil and national affairs.

tion of correct habits of speech, power to organize
thought and ability to recognize sound reasoning.
The schools in the inter-Schoolastic League in
Southeastern Idaho are the high schools at Twin
Falls, Pocatello, Blackfoot, Idaho Falls, the Acad-
emies of Rexburg and Pocatello and the Albion
Normal School. The Subject for debate was:
"Resolved, that Idaho should by a constitutional
amendment adopt a system of initiative and re-
ferendum similar to that of Article IV of the Con-
stitution of Oregon." Each school prepared an
ftfiirmative team and a negative team, the rule be-
lllg that the former team remain at home and the
latter team go meet the outside school. The above
question was Hrst debated in the Emersonian and
Philomathean Societies. Later thirteen students
entered the final try-out and of this number the
following teams were chosen:
Affirmative: John Hillman, Triphosa Pratt and
Charles M-abbutt, with Ellen Larsen as alternate
Negative: F. B. Dotson, James Mahoney and J.
Lyman Smith with Frank Johnson as alternate.
The final contest to determine the championship
of southeastern Idaho was held March 19, 1909 at
Rexburg. The negative team as given abovewon,
and gave Alibon the much coveted championship.
The debating work has been entirely in tue
hands of Prof. Louis A. Bauman, who has had
considerable 'experience in college debating. Prot.
Bauman has worked faithfully with students and
is deserving of a great of credit for the high
standard attained in debate.
We pride ourselves on the work done by the
Normal school, but We are not content to rest on
our laurels of the past. If hard work and rugged
determination can do it, we won't be satisiied with
anything less than the state championship next

Should you ask us whence these storie
Whence these jokes and memories,
With the odor of the fudges
With the gay and girlish laughter,
With the running thru the long halls
With the echo of quick foot-steps,
'With the frequent repetition
And their Wild glad jubilee,
We should answer, We should tell you
"From the North Wing, from the North wing,
From tl1e great and famous North Wing,
From the land of 'Down and Outs!
From the land that now We live in,
From the rooms and halls and Windows
Where we live and mourn together
Over many broken hearts."
We repeat them as we heard them,
From our daily life among them,
From the lips of happy girlies,
From the songs of merry singers,
Ye who love the 'upper North Wing,
Love tl1e mirth of that great hall,
Love the sunshine of the gay ones
And the smiling 'Down and Outs,'
Love the days you spent at Normal
And your friends of Normal, days,
Love to hear of fun and struggle:
Listen ye to these old stories
Of the life of 'Down and Outsl'
Ye who love our dear old Normal
Love the legends of her students:
Which like laughter from afar
Speaks in tones so gay and merry
That the years roll back as one,
Listen to this mixed up story,
To the history of our tribe!
Ye whose hearts are large and yearning
With a steady now in viewg
You have made a splendid catching:
Greater than our expectations.
Listen to our awful wailing!
We have lost a mighty member.
O, ye maidens of our Prep school,
O. ye ones Who've yet to come,
Hearken now unto our story+-
To the memories of our club!
Ye who think that you 're not in ity
And ye strugglers with your paint.
Take a lesson from our efforts,
For your time is soon to come.
Ye Whose hearts are fresh and simple,
Wl'1o have lately come to Normal,
Read this true, but heartless story
Of your beauless predecessors.
What a queer and foolish thing it seems when
We see our co-workers and friends refrain and
Sven deny themselves many things because they
believe in the insupportable belief of others. On
the other hand we again see ourselves smiling, pro-
bably behind our sleeves, at some people who have
been fortunate, Cas they thinkl thru some good
work of superstitious. I
Superstition is said to be the excessive rever-
ence for, or fear of, that which is unknown or mys-
terious. Superstitions have begun far back in past
history. The ancient Greeks and Romans feared
their gods whenever they misbehaved. Certainly,
this is a good example of superstitious. But do
these people live in the same fear now? No, they
have outgrown. .
The ancient Celts believed and had faith in the
Unknown, in this case God. Their ordeals, the
System of punishment, required a pure faith and
trust in God to pronounce the criminal guilty or
Ullguilty. After the rise of Christianity and thro,
the medium of the Reformation and Renaissance
these ancient and peculiar beliefs were abandoned.
There are many popular superstitious of today.
many of which are not common to all. Almost
QYGTY community has several which are totally
different from the neighboring one. However,
there are some which are common to almost every
0I1e,.as for instance, If you put anything on wrong
Slde out and leaving it on, good luck will result.
Breaking a looking glass will bring bad' luck, for
Seven years, killing a frog will bring ram. '
. Probably those not quite so common will be more
Interesting. ,Since we- are indulging in supersti-
tlons just for amusement none of these need to be
taken in earnest. ,
When I was a little girl I found that supersti-
ii0ns could not be too foolish for the Catholics to
believe. A queer, old lady used to tell me that
if ,l would fast all day on the 24th of December J
would that night see small, golden pigs crawling
on the ceiling. NVhat a pity superstitious ever
exist! After I. told my neighbors about it we
used to waste our energy trying to study out how
all this could happen. I-flow often then we would
wish we could only leave the food alone for that
day and be rewarded at night by that wonderful
l. might also cite an instance where superstitious
were of some value. Once a girl had short, thin
hair. No amount of cutting would do it any good.
Finally another old lady suggested that this girl
should trim her hair off every month at the time
of the new moon. Rhoda formed a habit and for
almost a year she waited patiently for the new
moon. By that time her hair had become beauti-
ful. flt was thick a11d long and where she had
once worn small, attenuated pig-tails, she now
wore her hair braided and encircling her head sev-
eral times. Undoubtedly she thought the new
moon was the cause oi the rapid growth. How-
ever, we came to the conclusion that it was not
the moon but the regular cuttings. Of course the
new moon was and is as regular as anything else
but many other 1'egular occurences could have
been substituted for it.
Thus it is seen that superstitious may or may not
bring about that which is said that they would.
Time is only needed to prove that foolishness of
them. Once upon a time we were firm believers in
witchcraft, but that has now been completely
wiped out. And. so, today, the various scientific
proofs and teachings are bringing to light the
absurdity of other beliefs. Soon we will be able
to find that all. we believe will be pure and sound
truth and nothing but the truth.

One day late in the fall, a small hunchback boy
was walking along the street shivering in the cold
wind. He was just wondering where he was go-
ing to get his supper when a man drove up in
a buggy, jumped out and throwing the lines to
Tim, said "Here kid, hold my horse 'til I come
back." Tim gladly stepped forward to take hold
of the lines and the man went inside the large
building just in front of them.
Tim wrapped the lines around his arm and put
his hands in his pocket to warm them. He stood
there about fifteen minutes when the man came
out. He dropped something in the boy's hand and
jumping in the buggy rode quickly away. The
loy moved over in the light to see what the man
had given him and, there to his great surprise, he
saw in his hand two bright dimes. This was
more than he had ever had at one time before
in his life.
He soliquized thus: "I bet I have a swell sup-
per to night, I can buy a cupof hot coffee, a plate
of baked. beans and some biscuits and still have
ten cents left for tomorrow. I tell you that 'er
man what give this money was a dandy."
He started towards the restaurant and had got
about half way when he saw two little boys, smal-
ler than himself. They were very thinly clad and
were very cold. They looked at him appealingly
and he walked up to them and said.
" 'Betcher life". was the answer that came from
between the chattering teeth of the larger of the
"Hungry? " asked Tim.
U 'Betcher life" answered the spoksman of the
"What's yer name? Mine 's Tim Mulligon,"
volunteered Tim. " The boys call me Brick Top
and him Speckledn answered the larger boy again.
"Well," said Tim, "I'm not rich but I suppose
l Kin put up a lunch for three ter-night. I have
twenty cents and that will buy quite a lunch.
Shall we do?"
'fWell l should say so," cried both boys in
Tim went into the restaurant and in a short
time came out with some things under his arm and
"Foller me an' 'llll take ye to a place Wl191'6
we can eat this and be comfortablef'
He led the way to an old deserted lumber
shack about twelve by twelve feet and there
spread the things on a box for them to, eat. In
a short time they had eaten all of the food and
nothing' remained but the things the lunch had
been calmed i11.
Tim then turned to the others and said, "I guess
there is room for three under those blankets."
They crept under and were soon asleep. But
there was not enough blanket for three and about
eleven o 'clock Tim awoke and found that he was
very cold. He began to think he was going to
die and he wanted to, so he thought he would pray.
Did he know God? Yes, for there was once a kind
lady who told him ofthe Almighty God who loves
all poor little boys without homes, food or clothing,
Tim raised on l1is knees, clasped his hands and
there--"Dear God, if there is any place in Heaven
for a poor "hunchy" like me, I would like to go.
Please take me. Amen." Then he lay down
again and some how he felt Wa1'1ner. Then he
passed into that delicious sleep from which there
is no awakening and poor little "I-lunchy Tim"
had found a home at last, a home where he would
know no more of hunger and and where all would
be bright and happy.

Robert De Monyal was a young Frenchman who
had recently come into the society circle of La
Ile was a dashing young man, and had created
quite a sensation among the younger set when he
first entered their circle, but as valuable articles
began to disappear, one after another, he was
l0oked upon with suspicion, a11d accused of theft,
though he could never be caught in doing the
Sllghtest thing of this kind. Still a strong suspic-
IOI1 rested on him and this he was fully aware of.
.lt was about three weeks after he was first sus-
Dlcioned that the announcement of Mrs. Du Pont's
large ball was announced.
The main purpose of this affair was that Mrs. Du
-Pont Ca rich young widowl might display the
family jewels which were usually kept in a vault
The most valuable of these jewels was a magni-
ficent diamond necklace of immense value.
Mrs. llu I'ont's friends had begged her not to
Wear this necklace, saying they feared it would
disappear as so many articles had done lately, but
She assured them that she would carefully watch
the necklace and she really must wear it as this
was intended to be the most fashionable a'l'l'air of
the season and of course she must be at her best.
u Several daysbeforevthe ball, Monseuir ,De Mon-
lyal came to Mrs. Du Pont and begged her to hire
21 detective to protect her jewels.
"I suppose," said he to Mrs. Du Pont you know
that I am suspicioned of having taken the ar-
ticles which have lately disappeared and if your
Hecklace should be taken I would of course be ae-
CUSed of taking it. I do notwish to be put in
Such an embarrassing position so in order that
0Verything may go well I ask you to hire a de-
I wish to attend this ball but cannot do so
unless you have someone to watch the jewels as
.l would certainly be pointed out as the thief if
they were taken and of course you know that
would be very unpleasant to me."
. Mrs. Du Pont consented to this plan and prom-
ised to secure a good detective.
. On a back street in a small two roomed house
lived a young woman known as Miss Bessie Gray.
She was small in stature, quick in her motions,
had wide open eyes and always wore a merry
Miss Gray claimed to be an orphan and .lived
by herself in this small house, doing nursing as
a means of earning her bread and butter.
At present she was taking care of Mrs. Du
Pont 's little boy. He had been very cross today
and as she sat idly sipping a cup of tea by the
stove in her little room she was wondering how
much longer she would have to keep this tire-
some work up. "But never mind," she said half
aloud, Hpehaps my time will come some day
Robert is doing all he can and I am sure I am
doing my part and who knows but that we may
be as rich as Mrs. Du Pont herself someday."
She half chuckled to herself and her thoughts
wandered dreamily into a maze of diamonds and
A knock at the door somewhat startled her.
She arose and opened it and to her surprise
saw Mrs. Du Pont standing there.
"Good evening, Miss Gray," said Mrs. Du Pont.
"You undoubtedly think it strange to see me here
at this hour but I came to make a special re-
quest of you.
I was so busy with my social duties today that
I forgot to mention it to you and as I was out
driving I thought I would stop in and tell you.
You .know I am to give my grand ball tomorrow
evening and wear the family jewels."
Mrs. Du Pont did not notice the strange light
that leaped into Bessie 's gray eyes. "Of course,"
she continued, "I will have a detective to watch
the jewels, but still to be perfectly safe I want
you to come earlier than usual and put Jamie to
sleep. Then after he is asleep I want you oc-
casionally to come to the head of the stairs and
glance trough the crowd. You will be unnoticed
and if you see any one attempting to steal the
jewels give the alarm at once." Will you do
this for me, Miss Gray?"
Bessie Gray assured Mrs. Du Pont that she
would be glad to give her any assistance she
needed, so Mrs. Du Pont left the door with a
greatful smile and heaved a sigh of relief as she
stepped into her carriage. She could wear the
necklace now without feeling uncomfortable.
The evening of the great event had arrived at
last and there was a great stir at the Du Pont
mansion Mrs. Du Pont glanced at herself in the
long mirror as the last finishing touches were
being added to her toilet and half smiled as she
thought to herself, "Mrs. Bellevue will not out do
me tonight. She may be a trifle handsomer than I
but she will never have the jewels to offset it.
Ah! I shall reign queen tonight. I wonder what
Monseur De Monyal will think of the necklace?"
Even though she was somewhat suspicious of hin.,
his handsome face attracted her and she wished
to be equally attractive to him and took great de-
light in dazzling him with her beauty

Miss Gray had come early as she had promised,
and had been trying for an hour to get the spoiled
Jamie to sleep. But Jamie absolutely refused to
go to sleep and Miss Gray in a fit of despair
called in Mrs. Du Pont. 4
"Oh dear!" exclaimed Mrs. Du Pont "is he
going to annoy me this evening? ,I am beginning
to have a headache already and the evening will
just be spoiled for me if I don't quiet my nerves.
Do for pity's sake give him something to keep him
"I have some soothing syrup in my little hand
bag," said Bessie Gray, "shall I give him some of
"Yes, anything to keep him quiet" said Mrs.
Du Pont, as she hurried down the broad stair-
way to receive her guests.

The evening was passing very successfully and
Mrs. Du Pont 's diamonds were the main topic of
discussion and many an admiring glance was cast
Even Mrs. Bellevue paid her compliments.
though, in her heart she secretly wished that jew-
els were entirely out of fashion, as a flash from
Mrs. Du Pont 's necklace put her pearls, which had
always been coveted by the social world, entirely
in the shade. .
Mrs. Du Pont was sitting in her chair smil-
ing coquettishly at Robert De Moniyal as he spoke
flattering words to her. A cry from Bessie
brought her quickly to her feet.
She rushed to the head of the stairs and asked,
"Is it the necklace, Bessie?"
"No, No," screamed Bessie Gray, "it's the
boy-Jamie. He has been kidnapped. I left him
asleep in his bed while I came out here in the
hall and when I came back he was gone."
The terrified mother ran into Jamie's room
to see if he was really gone and the excited
crowd tried to rush in after her.
At this moment a shot was heard followed by
another and Robert De Moniyal's voice rang out
clear and strong, "Here he is, I see him, the
kidnapper. Help! Help! We will catch him."
The crowd eagerly rushed to the spot where
Moniyal stood, but the kidnapper could not be seen
q"He went out the door," shouted Robert De
Moniyal, "quick and we will catch him yet."
The frantic crowd rushed out the door in pur-
su1t of the kidnapper forgetting all about their
ball gowns and jewels in their excitement.
At tl1e sound of shots Mrs. Du Pont fainted
and Bessie Gray quickly unclasped the necklace
and placed it in the bottle of soothing' syrup,
which she had used to quiet Jamie earlier in the
Tl1e bottle was carefully put in her hand bag
and she slipped out into the crowd unnoticed.
Soon the people returned without any report
of the kidnapper and to their utter astonishment
found the lost Jamie in bed.
"Oh, here he is, " exclaimed Robert De Moniyal,
"the kidnapper heard tl1e shots and knew we were
On his track. He was frightened lest he should
be caught and returned the boy while we were
Out in pursuit of him. Aha, he was very wise."
The people were so excited that they accepted
this statement without thinking any thing more
Now that Jamie had been found, Mrs. Du Pont
was discovered lying on the carpet where she had
fainted. After several moments had passed she
was revived. The first thing she did after learn-
llilg that Jamie was safe, was to put her hand to
hr throat. B
The necklace was gone!
She littered a scream and went into another
Every one of tl1e guests were searched but
the necklace was not found and everyone came
to the conclusion that the kidnapper had returned
with tl1e hey and had used his opportunity
to take the necklace.
lt was strange that this time they did not sus-
pect ,Robert ,De Moulyal as they usually did.
Worn out searching for the necklace the guests
departed, leaving many syrnpatllizing words for
Mrs. Du Pont who lay unconscious in her bed
where she had been put by Bessie Gray.
Robert De Moniyal notified tl1e police and they
immediatly set to searching for the missing neck-
lace, of course never once suspecting him.

The police searched for days but never found
any clue to the diamonds.

There is one great thing of the A. S. N. S. that
is becoming known more and more all over the
state and even farther than that, and that is the
wonderful Albion Spirit.
This striking virtue of the students and faculty
of the A. S. N. S. has indeed won high honors. It
is this which has inspired courage in the hearts of
our athletes bef'ore they enter tl1e great games of
baseball, football, basket-ball, debating, etc. Thru
continous talking of Pres. Axline and other mem-
bers of the faculty, the students have been filled
with a love and loyalty for their school which is
almost as strong as their sense of honor. Another
thing which strengthened the Albion spirit was
the narrow escape which the normal had from be-
ing moved to Pocatello. During that week of
crisis every one connected with tl1e school held his
breath every time a message was received from
Boise,rexpecting to hear of the passage of the fatal
bill. And when the school emerged from this anx-
iety every student and teacher of the school felt
a far deeper love for the dear old Normal which
so narrowly missed destruction.
School spirit seems to come over a freshman
just entered, like a sort of fever. Just before the
first football game he hears the cheering of his
fellow students and he is thrilled thru and thru.
He at first thinks it is excitement but in reality it
is the "fever," or the school spirit gripping his
By the end of the freshman year the students
ol' the A. S. N. S. are thoroughly saturated with
the Alibon spirit and go home after commence-
ment with a great lonesomness in their hearts, for
a whole three months must elapse before they can
Long before September the students begin to
count the days and even the hours before school
Then when the time comes, they meet, rejoicing
under the corner of the A. S. N. S. and their spirit
is swelled more and more so that their love for
the school lasts throughout their lives.

It was the unusually early hour of eight o'clock
when Mrs. Green tapped at Mrs. Timmie's door
and shut it tight after her as she entered. Her
hair wasn't combed and her kimona was held to-
gether with one hand.
"Did you-eh-sleep well last nightiln she be-
gan with a hesitation not usual to her.
'flland no," responded Mrs. Timmie looking at
her visitor inquiringly. "There was so much noise
going on that I was kept awake--"
"You heard it then?', exclaimed Mrs. Green,
seating herself on the bed. "Wz1sn't it perfectly
dreadful! The woman screamed as if she was be-
"And land! how tl1e man swore." .
"Who do you suppose it was?" Mrs. Green
"I don't knowj' replied Mrs. Timmie.
"It sounded as if it was right under my bed-
room window," responded Mrs. Green.
Mrs. Timmie sat up straight and took her el-
bows off the table for Mrs. Green's apartment was
directly above her's and Mrs. Green went on to
explain "It musthave been tl1e new people who
just moved in below you."
"I thought it was upstairs, " Mrs. Timmie said. "
There was another tap at the door and Mrs.
Sands, who lived on tl1e same fioor entered. She
looked from one to the other of her neighbors as
she sat down, and ventured to say, "Did either Of
you hear anything strange last night."
"Well, I should say."
"Well, I should say, was Mrs. Green's answer.
"I was so seared that I wanted Mr. Sand to call
the police and -"
There was a knock and Mrs. Downer entered.
The three women chorused: "Did you hear 1t?"'
"Hear it!" Mrs. Downer dropped into a morris
chair. "If that thing is going to happen' very
often I shall move out. I will not permit my
nieces to hear such language again, but we could
not help hearing that-It was across from us. "
Again there was a rap and in answer to Mrs.
Timmie's "come in" Mrs. Brown ente1'ed. She
glanced about the room--tl1e11 spoke " Would you
believe that any man in. this house would get
drunk and beat his wife? "
" Who was it?" Two or three asked at once.
"VVhy-I thought it was the new people on the
, "Not the doctor? She looks-" but before Mrs.
Brown could finish there was another rap and the
doctor herself stepped into the room. She looked
around with sharp questioning eyes as sl1e said:
"I was told this was a respectable place when I
moved in and I Want to know-"
'WVe always thought it was a respectable place
until last night," Mrs. Brown returned stiflly. '
"I am glad you are not in the habit of 'having
Hlidnight quarrels, for that is very disturbing."
t "It must have been your neighbors or the Por-
"It sounded to me as if it was up-stairs," de-
clared Mrs. Downer.
Just then Mrs. Porter entered and Mrs..Brown
began: "Mrs Porter, did you hear a noise last
"Why, no," Mrs. Porter returned laughing.
"We had company for dinner and I was so tired I
slept like a log all night. Why, what was it? "
They all began to talk when a woman with big
brown eyes appeared at the door. She .looked at
her neighbors and began at once: "I just wanted
to ask if you heard that dreadful quarrel last
night? Who do you suppos it was I?"
There was silence in the room. Every occupied
apartment was represented there. Mrs. Timmie
glanced around, "Do you s 'pose-it was--the jani-
tor?" she asked.

Dick sat on the lower step of the porch and
moodily dug his small heel into the soft dirt.
Every once in so often he said beneath his breath
"Darn," and semed to get a certain satisfaction
from this exceedingly naughty word. He only
dared to use it on certain occasions, and then
when no one could hear him. However, he felt
justified in using it now. '
It had all begun about two weeks ago when
Gladys had started to school. Gladys was short
and plump with soft yellow curls and a pair of
big blue eyes. Ray Thomas and .lim .Brown were
teasing her and Ray had just knocked her books
down on the grass. Gladys' chin had begun to qui-
ver piteously when something stirred within
Dick's breast and he sprang with all the force of
his small body on Ray. Then there ensued a
battle which would long be remembered by the
small boys who gathered around. In spite of the
fact that Ray was much the heavier, Dick emerged
triumphant altho his nose was bleeding and
scratches were scattered promiscously over his
small body. But this was nothing when Gladys
looked up at him with the big tears in her eyes
and asked with a trebble in her xoice: "Is you
Now Dick was no philosipher, but after this he
thot that it was only fair that he should at least
be counted in her good graces. And when at noon
she had deliberately chosen Ray, yes, Ray, the
very boy who had teased her, as her partner in
"Hide and Seek," Dick felt very much injured,
and that "darn" was a term not a bit too bad
to indulge in. Having come to this conclusion he
gave a savage kick and said it again:
Just then he saw Gladys coming down the street
with a bucket in l1er hand. She was coming over
to his house after milk. It wouldn't do for her
to' see him so he went around tl1e wood shed and
began to whistle unconcernedly.
"Dick! O, Dick!" called his mother, "come
here and carry this bucket for Gladys."
Dick whistled gaily on and was finally brought
forth muttering something about H girls always
being in the way," but at last they were on the
street. Dick strode along in front, and Gladys tod-
dled after, her breath coming in short puffs.
"Dicky, wait for 11l9,H she panted. Dick was
inspecting a candy pig, which he had drawn from
his pocket, and gave no heed to her entreaty.
"Dick, I'se tired." At this Dick slowed up a
little and Gladys caught up with him. They walk-
ed along side by side in uncomfortable, pouting
silence. Gladys finally said:
"Is you mad?"
"No, but I feel bad and I just believe I'll run
out there in the street and let the cars run over
me." He gave a covert glance to see how she
would take this. It had the desired effect. Gladys'
big eyes grew wide with fright and she nervously
drew nearer. ' V
"Dick, you wont r-e-a-l-l-y! Will you?"
"Say, Dick, I'm sorry I didn't choose you. I
dont like 'that old Ray' anyway."
Still no reply.
Gladys drew herself up proudly, tossed her
curls, and, if it were possible, her small tip-tilted
nose tilted just a little higher. Having made the
advances, it was his turn now. Dick saw the mis-
But Gladys did not answer. Thus they walked
all tl1e way home. At the gate they paused. Dick
held out the bucket to her. She took it and lin-
gered uncertainly, twisting nervously on one foot
and began hestitatingly:
"' Ise---got-something-for-you-i '. She put
something hard into Dick 's hand and retreated to
the house in confusion.
Dick opened his hand and-could it be true?
Surely his eyes deceived himl. No, there on a
pink heart were printed the words:
"I love you."
Dick ran home, rushed into the parlor and pro-
voked his sister's wrath by nearly upsetting her
in his joy, but Dick didn't mind. Out in tl1e yard
he pulled the heart out of his pocket and read
the words again:
"I love you."
GEN EVIEVE MARTIN
WEN DE DAD DIED."
We had just moved into a small western town
and had not yet become acquainted with the vil-
lage freaks. Just as we were leaving tl1e break-
fast table one morning I heard a rap at the door
and upon opening it I saw a strange old man
standing before me. His face was dried and
weather beaten and one could read suffering and
heartache in every line of it. His knees were so
weak and wabbly that he looked as tho he might
topple over any minute. A short distance from
the door stood a wheel-barrow, the wheel of which
was almost as rickety as the old man's knees, and
111 it were two greasy slop cans.
"You got any slop you 'd like to have took off?"
he asked with a decided Scandanavian accent. I
gladly shoved him the slop cans and from that
time on he came regularly every morning, until
We began to get interested in him and rather felt
HS tho we ought to know more about him. I de-
Olared from the first that he had a sad story to
tell and determined sooner or later to learn it if
A year went by and more and more was im-
Dressed upon me his patient endurance and his
Sweet, quite strength. "Old Slop," as the irre-
Verant people called him, never had much to say
but occasionally when he did talk 11e always seem-
ed cheerful in spite of the burden that evidently
lily on his shoulders. I often yearned to draw
him out and if possible to l1elp him and impart
Strength to him, but there was something in the
Qld man's bearing that forbade me to ask ques-
t10ns or I would have had the whole story long
before I did.
At last tl1e opportunity came. One morning
when he came he was fairly bursting with joy
and his wheel-barrow seemed to syinpathise with
him, for it lurehed along as though it were really
"You seem unusually happy this morning.
:live you received good news?" I ventured to
S . .
."Yas'm." And he spoke almost hurriedly in
h1S great excitement. "I got a letter frum ma
leetle gurl las' night an' she 's comin' to me from
de ole' country." .
"Oh, then you have a daughter? How old 1S
She-if I may ask?" for I was still rather timid.
"She'll be tirteen een March an' I a1n't seen
her since she were two year old."
"Well, I don't blame you for being happy. Is
your wife coming too?"
In the few times during this year that I had
got him to talk he had occasionally spoken of
"a vife back een de ole country."
"No'm, de vife she cant come until de dad die,"
and the sad tone mingled with bitterness excited
my curiosity more than ever.
Then he surprised me by saying, "I'm going to
tell you about it." He leaned back against the
house and began: "I come here frum de ole coun-
try eleven years ago. I was starved out of ma
home an' I had to come to America to make a
livin.' I was goin' to have ma vife an' leetle
Annie come to me as soon as I had earned enough
money. I went hungry an' cold to make de
money pile grow faster and finally I had enough
to bring ,ein over, so I sent it. But pretty soon l'
got a letter frum the vife saying she didn't vant
to come until de dad die. S0 I vaited an' worked
an' vaited an' I vas lonely all dese time. Finally
she sent 'me anoder letter an' say she tought de
dad was about to die an, she would come. So
again I sent her all ma savings an' den de dad
right quick got better an' den she wrote me a
mean letter an' I knew she didn 't vant to come
to me but vas trying to get all de money out of
me she could an' oh, I vas so lonely. I still hoped
dat when de dad vas dead maybe she vould come
so I vorked on an' shiver an' starve some more
for I tank maybe if I save hard enough I can buy
a home ven she come. But de vork vas too hard
an' I get seek and had to pay most all of ma mon-
ey to de edoctor an' ven I vas vell again I vas
not strong an' all I could do vas to get some peegs
an' gather slop for ,em an' I bane so awful lonely
but now ma leetle Annie's acomin.". And here
he almost danced for joy.
As he talked his eyes had assumed their old
dimness and his face was again gray and care-
worn. I began to talk about tl1e daughter he
loved so dearly and he was soon cheered up and
left almost as lighthearted as he had come.
From that time on he was very different. Al-
ways happy and quite talkative. About a month
later he came one morning happier if possible
than on that other morning. This time he told
me that Annie was coming the next day. "An'
den vont I be happy!" he exclaimed.
The next morning "Old Slop" of as I had learn-
ed Johan Bjorensan did not appear. But I thought
nothing of it, supposing he was too much taken
up with his daughter to remember his hungry
pigs and the neglected slop cans of his neighbors.
About two o'clock that afternoon a boy came and
told me that I was wanted in the little dirt cover-
ed shack down by th eriver. Anxiously I hurried
off, fearing some accident had befallen my friend.
When I entered a sweet faced girl came up to me
timidily and with an appealing look that went
straight to my heart she took my hand and led
me over to the bed. There lay the old man, his
little spark of life was almost gone. As I stepped
to the bed side he raised himself very slightly and
looked up at me very pathetically.
"Vill you keep Annie-until de dad die?" I
chockingly assured him that I would and he fell
back--dead. "Old Slop" had died of happiness.

Whence cometh those sounds so clear and shrill? Why, that's
our Normal School band.
One sunshiny day in September, '08, some four or five boys
chanced to stop in at Mr. Stenquist's room to discuss our re-
cent football victories. We had clearly demonsrated that we
had a right to shout and "make glad the day." It was this
fact that first led to the idea that we ought to have a brass
"How many players in school?" asked Mr. Stenquist.
"How many instruments available?" "None"
Thus was the first idea of a band met with rather discourag-
But a school full of life and active boys with an idea is not
so easily to be thwarted.
Once started, everyone talked band. A campaign was begun
to secure instruments. Every likely avenue was considered.
Finally through a series of combined efforts we were able to
have the first practice with six instruments and as many un-
trained players. From that number-our band has grown to
nearly 25 pieces.
Through persistent effort and faithful practice our boys have
made for themselves a very creditable showing.
They are each and every one real members of the "booster
club " and are in the front now in promoting Albion.
With new uniforms, and the prospects of an extended trip
the future looks very bright for the band. U
A knowledge of music, no matter how slight, has a recog-
nized value. The band should have the hearty support of all
for it does a great work in making our school life more enjoy-
able and profitable. Mr. Stenquist had entire charge and
through tireless eliiorts and patience has made it possible for
the A. S. N. S. to boast of a band. i

This is one of the features of our school, under
the able leadership of Prof. Stenquist, of which
We are justly proud. The orchestra has not ac-
complished rnuch as yet, owing to the late date
at which it Was organized, but with every rneln-
ber doing his best, it is sure to be a great success
in the near future.

The G-lee Club was first organized on December
10, 1907, under the name of the Lucerne Glee Club
and the name is still retained. There were then
eight members. First Sopronos: Birdie McFall,
Kate N01'llllIlglZ0l1, Second Sopranos: .Toe Parry,
Pearly Story, First Altos: Kate Burgroff, Frances
Grey, Second Altos: Myrtle Cornish, Olive Min-
These merry people sang at various entertain-
ments. Among their productions Were:
Welcome Pretty Primrose Flower
ln llld Madrid
Fair l 7al'l'odills
After the holidays in 1909 the old Glee Club
was reorganized, but only two of the old members
were retained, Miss Story and Miss Cornish. As
the club now stands it contains Pearly Story, June
Beecher. Edna Barber, Vada lslelsley, First So-
pranos, lllva Minear, Maude Fox, Leda Burstrom,
Bessie Aekerly, Second Sopranos, Helena Van-
derwel, Ellen Larsen, Mary Leonard, Myrtle
The Club has not been organized very long so
we have not had, many trying ordeals imposed
upon us as yet. Probably the greatest undertak-
ing, ffor us or the camera: you may be judgel Was
having ten exposures made in order to get a pic-
ture Which did justice to the beauty of the mem-
bers. The most amusing and interesting was see-
ing the Misses Minear and Larsen doing the tight-
rope act, balancing themselves on the top of a low
step ladder, While the remainder of the group
were going through the various contortion acts
arranging themselves upon the rounds of tl1e lad-
der, to get in a position which would be less harm-
ful to the camera and do more credit to them-
We have not yet gained a firm footing in the
World, but all We need is time.
lVe are only four months old and we have
already presented a number of selections, among
Oli, Won 't You Come and Dance VVith Me?

Last, but by all means not least, we sang that
beautiful and heartrending "Johnnie Smockerf'

Last fall the girls of the A. S. N. S. with the assistance of the
lady members of the faculty succeeded in organizing a Y. W.
We met October the eleventh and organized electing Miss
Hinchliff as president, Miss Winkler as vice-president, Miss T.
Pratt, treasurer and Miss E. Larsen, secretary.
We sent Miss Barber to the Northwest district convention.
The inspiration she received while there has been of the greatest
value to the association.
November the tenth we were favored by a visit from Miss
Hopkins, secretary of the Northwest district. One of the great-
est benefits in getting better organized was the help received
from her as was also the excellent talk she gave us in Y. W. C.
A. during her stay with us.
One of the most beneficial departments of the association is
the Bible study. We have three classes, supervised by Miss
Van Boskirk, Miss Smith and Mrs. Knipe. The classes meet
each Thursday and discuss the daily readings. This year we
have been studying the character of Jesus.
Owing to the fact that the association is not well organized,
the social events have been very few. In the fall. we gave a
taffy-pull in the dining room of the Girls' Dormitory to thc
whole school. This spring we gave a County Fair, to help
defray the expense of Miss Barber. It was a decided success.
both socially and financially, as we cleared over forty dollars.
In February we elected new officers: Miss G. Pratt, presi-
dent, Miss M inear, vice-presidentg Miss Hinchlff, treasurer and
Miss Barber, secretary.
The benefit we girls have received from the Association can
not be estimated. It is training and strengthening us both
morally and mentally for the long years when our lives may be
beyond its influence.

Educational institutions are realizing more and more that
no man has a liberal education who has studied only the usual
school branches, and that no man is well developed who has
developed only the spiritual and mental sides of his nature and
has omitted the spiritual side. '
For this reason a band of earnest fellows got together last
November and organized a Young Men 's Christian Association.
The object of this work is to create a religious atmosphere in
the school, to bring the young men of the institution together in
a study of the greatest of books, the Bible, and to better fit
them for their work in life.
In the organization of a Y. M. C. A. a heartfelt need of the
school has been realized.
Although the work is quite young there is every reason to be
encouraged. Another year will find the Y. M. C. A. in good
working order and the old members will be seen getting behind
the work and pushing it on with renewed energy and deter-

Social life at the Dormitory is not confined to
special events for every Friday and Saturday
evening. The parlor is open. Students dances
were also given in the dining room. H
At the opening of the school year the faculty
gave a reception to the students. Mr. and
Mrs. Haight were with the faculty in the receiving
line and some thing good to eat gave us a good
time and made us better acquainted.

some friendly Indians. The minuet and Virginia
Reel were the most popular of the old time games.
Punch and wafers refreshed the company. Every
one thanked George that he had been born.
On Feb. 27, the boys were at home in their Dorm

On the twenty .seventh day of the second month
of the year nineteen hundred and nine, the tribe
of tl1e boys d01'lllltO1'y did sununon to their halls
the students of the normal and low and behold
a great multitude did assemble and rejoice thereat.
There were huntreses, queens, cowgirls, coons,
the nightly police force and all other kinds of peo-
ple from the earth.
In the beginning theyydid wander to one vacant
room where lo! they did behold an animal and all
stood about marvelling at the immensity of .the
ground hog. Straightway, Joe of the House of
Gibbs, did lead the crowd to the top of the Golden
Stair but, lo and behold! before St. Peter could
open the pearly gate they did shoot the shoots
to the lower regions. Yea,' they did shoot the
shoots more than need be.
At the entrance of the lower region, they re-
ceived a pass, with which they were allowed to
gaze at the Wingless bats. From here they journ-1
eyed thru the colonnades to behold Mars, and it
came to pass that their faces were smitten with
drops of water.
Thence they did advance to the abode of mighty
Dotson, where in was found the sun dog. And
it came to pass that there was a great feast pre-
pared for the weary and they were filled thereof.
After refreshing their tired bodies, they were
once again lcd up the long steps by lrving of
the House of Hillman to see the poll cat and the
links playing with the English hares.
Then Pike of the House of Sears and Irving of
the House of Hillman did perform great things
before the multitude and there was great rejoic-
ing. I l
And it came to pass that the tribe at the tenth
hour did scatter to the far east and every thing
was filled with quietness.

In the earlier part of the life of the Albion
State Normal School, athletics did not play a
very important part. Later the school took up
track exercises and b.aseball. Track meets were
held between the so-cieties, and between the
classes. Baseball was played with the town team.
After a time track exercises were abandoned al-
together then foot-ball was taken up and Pro-
fessor R. C. Thompson secured as coach. Pro-
fessor Thompson proved to be one of the best
coaches in the state. In two years from an inex-
perienced mob of boys who had never played a
game of foot-ball, he made a championship team.
The first foot-ball team was formed in nineteen-
five. Not a player on the team had ever played
before so it was not surprising that this team went
down to defeat. The first game was played with
the Academy of Idaho and resulted in a score of
fifty-four to nothing in favor of the Academy. The
second game resulted in a score of thirty-four to
nothing in favor of the Academy.
In the fall of nineteen six the tables were turn-
ed. The Erst game was played on the Albion
grounds, neither team scored. Then the Albion
team went to Pocatello and defeated them six to
The base-ball team of that year played its first
games with other schols. Albion lost one game to
Pocatello Academy and won one.
The Academy basket-ball girls defeated the Al-
bion girls once and were themselves defeated once.
The football season of nineteen seven opened
with a game between Albion and the Pocatello
High School. Neither team scored. Then Albion
easily defeated the Idaho Falls team.
After this game, the Pocatello Academy was
brought to Albion for a practice game. The game
resulted in a score of six to two in favor of the
Albion went to Pocatello a few weeks later to
play for the championship of the southeastern di-
vision of the state and was defeated by a score
of eleven to nothing.
-In base ball that year Albion won every game on
he schedule excepting the one with the Academy.
After a hard-fought game of ten innings the Acad-
emy won by a score of eleven to seven.

Girls' athletics at the A. S. N. S. have hitherto
been almost unnoticed, but last year witnessed a
victory for the basket ball team, which somewhat
renewed the interest of the school.
Early in September, '08, two girls' basket ball
teams were organized, a new coach chosen, and
work began in earnest, and continued so through-
out the season.
The first game was played with Twin Falls High
School at Albion, on a very disagreeable day. It
ended in a score of 14-5 in favor of the Twin Falls
team. But this did not discourage the girls, on
the contrary it seemed to make them work all the
harder, preparing for what was expected to be
one of the hardest fought games of the season. On
November 6th the Pocatello girls arrived and the
next morning a scared, but determined set of
girls, marched out to the ball grounds. When the
whistle blew the crowd expected to see the ball
knocked easily down to Pocatello 's goal and go
into the basket with no opposition at all, but the
Albion girls stepped in just at that moment. The
spectators awoke to the fact that the home team
was there ,and that their team-work was fine.. The
game ended in a victory for Albion, the score be-
ing 14 to 10.
The next game was played at Twin Falls with
the High School. Their grounds were muchtoo
large, and the baskets not in good condition, but
by team-work and quick playing the game was
won by Albion with a score of 15 to 13. The trip
was thoroughly enjoyed by all, thanks to Mr. Hun-
There was now one game left to play with Po-
catello on their own grounds. On the 12th of Dec.
We went to Pocatello to play the game for the
championship of Southern Idaho.
The weather being very cold we were compelled
to play in the gymnasium, where a gallery around
the entire top of the court was a great obstacle
to the Albion girls, for the Pocatello guards would
force the forwards under this platform and they
could do their usual goal throwing. It was a
hard fought game, but the team work of Albion
was acknowledged by all as being far superior
to the other team. .
The game ended 10 to 9 in Pocatello's favor.
Thus Albion lost the championship. I-Iad the
game been played on nuetral grounds, the score
would probably have been the reverse.
The team practiced until nearly time for the
spring season, where it 'was learned all the op-
posing teams had withdrawn and nothing was left
to Albion, but to withdraw also.

"wb: Sage" Question Qtnlumn
fWe are attempting to answer in this issue some
of the letters of inquiry we have received. 'An-
swers not appearing in this number will be found
in the following publication.-Editors "Sage"
J. G.-Yes, you are doing wrong. It is highly
improper for a young man of your dignity to de-
vote his attention to more than five different girls
during one week. -
M. F.-No, it would not be right for you to re-
move from the locket the picture of the giver to
replace it by another. Do not wear your cross for
deception. Be perfectly honest with your admir-
Eva--You may continue to smile at Prof. L. if
you think it will help your grades.
F. P.-No, we do not advise you to accept gum
from Mr. H. every Sunday evening. Chewing gum
is a very unhealthy habit. -
H 'Tis better to have loved and lost,
Than never to have loved at all,"
applies to your case.
O. I.-Yes, it is the proper thing for you to stay
away from dances if the lady of your choice does
not care to go.
W.-Yes, you did quite right in marrying, as
you could not attend to your school work when
she was so far away.
Cyrus-It is improper to play Romeo and Juliet
at the front dormitory window. Authorities of
modern schools forbid the practice.
