like ships! Like massive liners ever colorful and representative
of millions in capitalg like lowly tugs never venturing from
the fogs of the harborg or like ancient wind-jammers the
bravest of them all .... Men as shipsg the black depths of the
ocean as the future's uncertainties! An ever active mass of
them on a vastness of water that opposes idleness and strains to
tear them away from anchor chains and hawsers.
They slip across the seas with ports of destination leagues

ceaselessly slip astern . . . between are all the uncertainties of
time and chance, fair weather with favorable winds and a
foaming wake, or a shrieking gale and mountainous seas that
snatch at scudding low, black clouds .... A mere speck afloat

course in a sudden hurricaneg sounding along a dangerous lee

The science of modern navigation, the study of charts, the
knowledge of advantageous currents, tides to be awaited,
shoals and reefs to be avoided, are the necessary guides. The
ship must be strong and the captain brave. The compass, the
sextant, the chronometer, never fail for they are the instru-

ANTIOCH'S LEFT WING
Q XURING the year following Antiochls reorganization
gli nine years ago there was little in the way of stu-
- dent activities to indicate that the liberal element
A- e - among the students would ever become prominent
or even active on the campus. The student body was composed
mainly of two types, the "Rah Rah" people, and the conserva-
tive dignified people. Here and there one might find a solitary
highbrow who talked about the latest books, and considered
himself intellectual. But there was, in the broader sense, no
We were too busy getting acquainted with each other.
The campus was a frontier, or rather a no-man's land. Trench-
es, debris, heatless rooms, half-completed plumbing, and fresh
paint gave the place an air of change and uncertainty which
was not conducive to the products of leisure. The first gang of
students was a rough one. Nearly all were freshmen, and they
came from all over the country. There was no tradition. There
were no publications. There was nothing but ditches and mud.
We assembled now and then to roar out our football songs,
and in the evenings we raged about in the men's dorm, wreck-
ing each other as Well as the furniture. Of my particular
friends that first year practically all were fired either for
drinking, low scholarship, or general undesirability. The turn-
over was astonishing.

Out of the womb of timelessness
Was born this hour.
Earth holds its breath,
And life for a moment is not reality
But some long time gone dream.
And you and I and the trees and the stars
Hold hands in a magic circle
Of sympathy with eternity.
This is the hour
When we are God
And life and man are naught.

basis of the present community government was inaugurated.
That was a great year for liberal activities. The Blaze attracted
a more representative group and did not produce a clique as
the League of Youth had done.
But most of the liberal leaders graduated in 1926. The next
year was a lean one. A new magazine, the Nofzrcnsor, founded
by Walter Kahoe, made its appearance, with poetry and philo-
sophical humor as its aim, and shared staff members with the
Blaze. For two years liberal activities were on the decline. The
Nofzscfzsor degenerated and died. The Blaze was growing
weaker. Horace Chanapney was out of school. Discussion
groups stopped. The promotion of interracial meetings was
left to the faculty. Very little happened in the way of student
liberal activities. '
Blaze activity may be taken as a fair barometer of liberal
doings at Antioch during the past Hve years. In the school year
of 1927-1928 only two issue of the Blaze appeared. Other things
were happening to some extent. It was during that year that
telegrams, signed by over half the student body, were sent to
Washington protesting America's policy in Nicaragua, and as
a result of student activity this political protest was taken up
considerably beyond the campus. The arrival of Dr. Broda in
Yellow Springs was perhaps the most important event on the
liberal calendar for the year.
During the following year the Antioch Parliament was
organized and began to function. The declining Blaze was
revitalized by the heroic efforts of a small group of freshmen
and sophomores. Dr. Broda began to get his League for the

was made under the name of the Antioch Forum, but that
soon stopped. The League of Youth members resigned from
the Arztioehian due to pressure from both faculty and stu-
dents. It looked like the end.
And then, in the spring of 1925, a little coverless, eight-
page "guerrilla magazine" naively crept forth to meet a wall
of indifference and scorn. Volume I, Number 1 of the Blaze
had appeared. The beginning of the Blaze marked the gradu-
ation of the liberal group from faculty sponsorship. For the
first time since the new Antioch began the liberal gang was
standing on its own feet.
Had the old League of Youth crowd stood solidly behind
the infant Blaze all might have been well, but the left wing
split, and split again, leaving a mere shadow of the lively
gang that once met at Chatterjeesl. When the second issue of
the Blaze appeared popular ridicule knew no bounds. The staff
of the Arzzioehiafz was especially vehement in its denunciation
of the liberals' attempt at journalism. And it was this very
antagonism which put life into the Blaze. The editorial and
correspondence columns of the z47Zil0Chl.Il7Z reeked with attacks
on the Blaze and defenses of it. Too late the Afzlioehiafz saw
its error. A new liberal group had already begun to rally around
Witli the opening of school in the fall of 1925 a full-
fledged liberal club leaped into existence, to publish the Blaze
and to promote all manner of liberal activities on the campus.
Discussion groups were promoted, interracial meetings with
VVilberforce were regularly conducted with considerable suc-
cess, Antioch's student government was overthrown and the

have elapsed since it went out of existence. Except for the in-
ception of the organized halls two years later it is doubtful if
any other student activity at Antioch has had such far-reaching
In those days the student body as a whole was much
more conventional and intolerant than it is today. There was
a general desire that Antioch should grow into a conventional
peppy American college with lots of the Hgood old college
spiritl' and all the palaver that goes with it. The League of
Youth stemmed that tide, and was cordially hated for it.
The Anziochian staff were mostly League of Youth people,
and I have a clear mental picture of a crowd of angry stu-
dents gathered about the big elm in front of North Hall on
which was posted a clipping from the Avzziochiafz, along with
a sign which read, "Are we going to stand for this sort of
thing at Antioch?" The clipping signed HH. C." ridiculed
football. That night Horace Champney was dragged from his
room, paddled severely, and ducked in the horse trough on
the road to Grinnellls.
A few evenings later the football team met at Chatterjee's
at the invitation of the League of Youth, for a free for all dis-
cussion. The room was packed. Feelings were at white heat.
And the League of Youth kept the upper hand. I overheard a
frightened conversation later in the evening between two foot-
ball men who seemed to think that they were going to be fired
from college for playing football at all.

But Antioch was founded on idealism, and conceived in
high adventure. Liberal ideas were her stock in trade. It was
inevitable under such circumstances that there should be spirit-
ual and intellectual stirrings among the students.
Bit by bit things were straightening out and becoming
organized. A few students took hold of the Antiochian, hither-
to a quarterly, and organized it on a self-supporting weekly
basis. Another group started the Towers. Numerous clubs
were organized, not by people who lived together, but by
people with common interests. The student body was im-
proved by drastic weeding.
And with the growth of wider interests and activities
there gradually became perceptible a certain vague drift of
liberalism on the part of a handful of especially serious indi-
The first manifestation of the movement was the meeting
of groups at the homes of faculty members. These meetings
happened mainly at the Morgans' during the Hrst two years.
By the beginning of the third year of the New Antioch the
liberals had developed a group consciousness which was crys-
talized under the guidance of Mr. Chatterjee who held open
house each Thursday evening for such students as cared to
gather at his home to discuss things in general. This group
came to include such poets, editors, idealists, "truth seekers,"
and reformers as Antioch had been able to attract.
This was the famous "League of Youthl' whose short
tumultuous career has echoed through the six years which

each year, you are unable to imagine what this new loneliness
Loneliness? Yes, and longing.
Little things make you lonely 5 little things make you long
for Antioch. A strange face in a strange city--in a Hash you
are reminded of someone you knew at Antioch. You are back
there, wandering about the campus, sitting before a round
table in the library, climbing the steps of the Main Building.
Faces are there-faces that you know-friendly faces.
A strain of long ago music-you remember again that
last dance in the Pavilion-the walk afterward in soft dark-
A glance at city trees-you remember again gathering
wood for that campfire in the glen-black marshmallows-
white moonlight-tall dark trees above-trickling water-
warmth, content, drowsiness.

THE NIGHT ROAD
At that corner, where the smooth road ends,
Where the traveller turns from the valley of cities
Man drops over the edge of the world.
All things loud and gaudy
Are tinsel phantoms, gone where time goes.
The rutted way is rich with dust.
The hr trees link black arms,
Walling in a great peace.
Stars burn cool and clear among them.
The vault of silence, from earth to heaven,
Brims with the breathing of the fields.
THE MEN'S DORMITORY
are doubtless many ivies that have been trans-
planted into America from Great Britain with a
history attached to them, but it is possible that
' none of them have a history quite as remarkable
as the ivy which mantles the walls of Antioch.
The donor of the ivy was Miss Alton Halstein Iohnson, a
sister-in-law to Mr. Frank Grinnell of Spring Lea. One sum-
mer while visiting the estate of Washington Irving Miss Iohn-
son so fervently admired the ivy luxuriously ernbowering
Sunnyside that upon leaving, Mr. Irving said, "Let me give
you some ivy to take back to your home in Ohio."
Initially, the ivy had been planted on Irving's delightful
home by a Mrs. Renwick, of New York City. It was she whom
Burns immortalized in his poem, "The Blue Eyed Lassief' On
one of her visits to Scotland she went to Melrose Abbey. Sir
Walter Scott gave her a piece of ivy to plant at Irving's home
and she did so with her own hands. It soon attained a growth
as luxuriant at Sunnyside as it had at Melrose. .
Miss Iohnson, herself a remarkable, cultured woman with
a long line of literary ancestors, finally gave the ivy to Antioch
through Doctor Thomas Hill who was then president of the
Some years ago the Antioch ivy was confounded with
bignonia, and thinking it might injure the roof was torn in
part from the walls, but,
"Whole ages have Hed, and their works decayed,
And nations scattered beeng
But the stout old ivy shall never fade
From its hale and hearty green.
The brave old plant in its lonely days
Shall fatten upon the past,
For the stateliest building men can raise
Is the ivy's food at last.
Creeping where no life is seen
A rare old plant is the ivy green."

UNITY IN EDUCATION
HE Antioch Plan requires that we consider what
sorts of knowledge are really essential to the man
who today is to be called educated, and that we
- organize these into a curriculum possessing unity.
To this end we have a number of courses, DOI merely required,
but required in a certain sequence. Moreover the various in-
structors coiidinate and correlate what is taught. Yet a se-
quence of courses, however coordinated and correlated, do not
make a unity 5 they remain simply so many courses. Not even
the fact that these courses converge on the individual student
makes them a unity. Unity comes when the student makes
them a unity. It does not come unless the converging and cor-
related courses make a difference to the individual.
Of course, to make a difference to the individual or in the
individual is the end of education. And the important unity is
the unity of one's conduct or attitude towards life. A biologist
who would drink unnecessarily of polluted water has scarcely
achieved it. The physician who expectorates in the street car
has not attained it. And the educated man of today who ac-
cepts the teachings of modern science, but insists also on a
literal acceptance of the first chapters of Genesis has not

I use the term achieve advisedly. For a unified and consis-
tent life is an achievement, and one of no mean order. It does
not simply happen, it will not come about merely by being ex-
posed to unified and consistent teaching. It comes from an
earnest effort on the part of the learner himself, first, to put
together what he knows and then to act accordingly.
Permit me to make a slightly different approach. Consis-
tent conduct is impossible without a unified knowledge. If we
are to act consistently we must, in Matthew Arnold's words,
endeavor to see life clearly and see it whole.
As Thomson says, it takes a long-necked observer to see
the entire f-irmament from one window. So we have divisions
of labor among scientists, and we have divisions in the labor
of students. These constitute the courses. But the divisions be-
tween courses are not insurmountable stone walls. It is a whole
we study and that whole is the order of Nature, an organism
with parts or members, constituting one body. All of the sci-
ences, as well as religion, philosophy, and, indeed, art, are but
so many different ways of viewing or approaching nature.

gl o sHtP can be steered with its wheel lashed fast 5
A the ship without chart and compass can do
7 but drift. So it is with a philosophy of life. If one
fe me is to reach a destination, one must have a destina-
tion, and not be blown about by every wind of doctrine. On
the other hand, the steersman that keeps his course must shift
the wheel alertly with every change of wind or fresh ocean
current the ship encounters. Wisdom is delicately balanced be-
tween loyalty to principle and openness of mind. How easy
for constancy to harden into a sort of rigor morris of stupid
custom, without variety, adventure, or zest, and how facile
the descent from alert intelligence, to mere opportunism and
expedieucy, without range, prospect, plan or hope.
But where, amid the confusions of this epoch, can a chart
be found? One need not despair of an answer. Hold fast
the conviction that a man has power, within limits, to choose
his course, and there remains only the question of direction.
Now two points sullice to determine a line, and any line may
be projected into infinity. Every person recognizes some loy-
alty beyond his own pleasure, some devotion to a person,
group, nation, or cause. This loyalty is to him utterly valid and
authoritative. Let him project it into infinity, by working it to
the utmost. If it is only the loyalty of the worker to his job, he
may give it an infinite projection and make it the beginning of
a life-philosophy, by seeking to know the total meaning of the
job, its place in the economy of life, all its scientific, technical,
and human bearings. Alfred Noyes considered the hand-organ
Hunder the aspect of eternity." That is wisdom.

fessional artists, both in the legal and illegal aspects of the phrase, I
have had opportunity during the past winter to read a number of recent
decisions in the courts and wish to set one out below for the ediiieation
of the readers of the Towwrr who may not be as favorably located near

,Q N APPEAL from reality Ioe Grad was found ilt

- 4 4- 1926. Recently decided and ,affirmed by the full
bench, Richman, Chief Iustice, presiding, Poorman, Begger-
1-,ei1ii'fi-fwfr of coNeE1T and SWVELL-HEAD, early common law
man, Thief, Doctor, Lawyer, Merchant, Chief Associate Ius-
tices. The opinion given by the Chief Iustice sufficiently states
the facts necessary for the full understanding of the case:
Ion GRAD was found guilty as charged in the indictment
and sentenced to life at hard labor. His defense was the world
owed him a living. The young man was reared in the nurture
and admonition of a Christian home and had many advantages
in his early youth. In 1921 he left home to go to a small town
in Ohio to enter college in pursuit of a higher education. He
never caught up.
This Court will take judicial notice that the college is non-
sectarian, is not a trade school Qfor if it were, the respondent
would not be before us on this chargej and that the plan,

five weeks, was said by an eminent authority to be the great-
est advance in education in America in the past umpty years.
QDid he not overlook that 'Lnoble experiment," prohibition?j
Let us unwind the devious trail left by the respondent
despite the red herrings he so artfully dragged across the path.
I-Ie stands before us today buffeted by reality. He was led by
ambition to the pinnacles of opportunity, and battered five
years of his life for what lay before him in the valley. He
took up First INTER-collegiate athletics, and when his preceptors
forbade that pleasure, his fertile mind conceived INTRA-
collegiate sports, until the posthumous heir threatens more
evil than the deceased parent dreamed of. He chose cards,
playing poker with cronies behind drawn shades and locked
doors. Again the guiding hand . . . again the wily culprit with
now habitual finesse, risked a lower card when the strict rules
of play called for a higher, and Bridge became the game, played
in the parlors of his educators! Fraternities were frowned
down, organized halls given official sanction .... A rose by
any other name would smell as sweet and he stays nestled in
this incubator of sterility. Need we further clutter our opinion
with similar occurrences?

Five years roll by and he has learned catch-words and
soundful phrases, a few formulae, a few titles and authors, a
smattering of a "well-rounded" curriculum, sufficient dexter-
ous cant to help him Hpassl' his examinations and attend social
functions .... What a background! And we reach the respond-
ent's defense. He pled NoT GUILTY. At the trial, he offered in
evidence a sheepskin, sealed, signed, and delivered by the col-
lege president as a DEGREE of Bachelor of Arts. We accept the
evidence for what it is worth. He argued, and skillfully, that
THAT fitted him for his place in society, THAT was the Key to
the City, THAT was indicia of his ability, THAT was sufficient
justihcation of his attitude, THAT .... but enough. We sustain
the lower court's opinion on this point. The cases are legion
proving the worthless evidentiary value of such documents
other than as murals.
In affirming the trial courtls holding, this Court hopes
that his five year's sojourn in this college will not hinder the
respondent's success in carrying out the sentence imposed:
"A lifetime of hard labor among his peers."

It is a far cry from 1859 to 1921, when the present writer,
one dismal and drizzly autumn day, tripped over an open
trench and sprawled, bag and baggage, gracefully at the feet
of Dean Inman, then a mere biology pedagogue. Thefuture
dean, being unable at a cursory glance to determine the exact
genus of this strange new bacillus spread across his path, and
being in too great a hurry to take out his pocket glass for a
closer study, disappeared quickly behind the dune of an ad-
joining steam line ditch.
I had not long been a charter resident under the new
Morganic dispensation when I learned that the most perplex-
ing problem of reorganization was that of Ending a suitable
way in which to distinguish the three student groups now com-
monly known as the A's, the B's, and the C's.
It was at first thought to name each division after a Hower,
i.e., magnolias, morning-glories, black-eyed susiesg but inas-
much as students were from every known state in the Union,
including the Scandinavian, and because there were not nearly
enough divisions on hand to provide hothouse accommoda-
tions for the numerous state flowers thus Huttering nervously
for representation, this plan was ultimately thrown into the
discard-which, in that remote day, meant any one of several
gaping wounds intersecting and pocking the local landscape.
At the height of these hectic deliberations, in a violent
effort to arrive at some multi-laterally satisfactory solution of
this problem many students repaired to secluded nooks in the
glen, took up their positions behind tables in the tea room and
adjourned to other places in town where they were served
potions designed to precipitate deep reflection, prayer, and
meditation conducive to fluidity of ideas.

would the plan be so devised to distinguish us by astronomical
terminology? There might, it was stoutly held, be the Pegasi,
the Cassiopeans, the Saturnalians, the Moonshiners.

for a quasi-medical nomenclature frankly suggestive of cer-

vogue ever since.

This is not silence. Silence lies
Between the night sky and the quickened earth
Scents the boughs of a black hemlock
Who wears the sunset as a pirate cloak.
Silence is the music of resting hands,
The beautiful, the worn hands
Of those who have lived deeply.
This is emptiness. Clatter and babble
Of street cars and auto horns.
Hollowness-these long dun halls,
Square rooms, hard lights revealing nothing.
This is futility-suffocation.
Till the restless call of a train cuts the void,
Memory and promise,
Voice of worlds clean and deep 3
By the jagged and salty bellow of a boat.

remain acquaintances, and friends remain friends despite great-
er or lesser degrees of distance. Rumors of gambling and drink-
ing, and some said those evils hastened the hall-dooms, persist
in practically the same quantities. Wonder yet lives in Whole-
sale lots that a man-or-boy should not be allowed to live with
the group that is most agreeable to him.
The story of the men who covertly attend meetings of
their old loves although ensconced in new barracks combines
with the story that practically an entire hall has forsaken the
dormitory for the village to convince the writer that there
will be no peace on our merry-go-round till those present har-
dened recalcitrants have joined the legendary ranks of Alum-
ni who cavort in Elysian fields, and from boundless depths
of selfishness he wonders why he must be one of the guinea-
pigs upon whom the noble experiments are performed. With a
touch of pathos he remembers the time when he was un-
touched by youthful cynicism, when he was free from the
dread of "carefree college life," when he, even, he shrinks to
admit, relished the idea of being a fraternity man, and he
laughs a laugh that is tinged with immature bitterness.
The writer's remembrance of the weary disgust of the
sophomore who tries to study in a hall of twelve freshmen is
interrupted by the so-called tap-dancing of the future Fred
Stone who spasmodically lives above him, and he grows firmer
in his belief that a happy family of some four hundred sym-
metrical mortals is Utopian, but entirely impossible. From
early childhood he has favored small families, and he supposes
that death will find him still so prejudiced despite future ro-

An appreciation of cz most delightful gentlewomafz
HERE is a little room in the Clinic that is, in a Way,
quite out of place. It should never be in a house of
healing, but, rather, in some little vine-covered cot-
-A'i'ee--4! tage with flowering window-boxes and a thatched
roof. It is a room that will live long in the memories of many
Antiochians as a delightful haven of refuge from the cares of
campus life. It is Antioch's closest approach to a salon-to one
of those gathering places of delightful people, presided over
by a charming Woman.
And who will deny that the one who holds sway over the
gatherings in that little room is not charming? Miss Alice
Bingle came here several years ago and quickly won herself a
place in the hearts of everyone. She instituted, early in her
career, the practice of afternoon tea, proving that-although
she was away from her native Britain-she was still loyal to
its tradition. It was not long before she was gathering in by
degrees the whole campus to join her in the four o'clock ritual.
About her table, students forgot campus feuds and petty dis-
sention. With consumate tact, she made everyone feel at home.
More than one cloud of homesickness has vanished with the
magic of a second cup of tea. Weakening spirits have found
fresh stimulus in the tiny corner room. And who can count
the budding romances that have bloomed in the spring when
the rattle and clink of cup and spoon sounded in the Clinic

An ability to win and hold the affection of many of us
has given Lady Alice a place that cannot be filled. When We go
madly about, having our silly fun, she smiles gently and un-
derstandingly. With the patience of Iob, she bears good-
naturedly no end of bantering and ragging on the part of
students. The many photographs that adorn the wall of her
sitting-room testify to her popularity.
One needs only to be a patient in the Clinic to realize
her professional ability and the sunshine of her disposition.
Too, one learns of the hand of iron beneath the velvet glove-
no light ever burns after hours in that building. To many a
lonesome invalid, she has meant an inexpressible lot. In emer-
gencies-and a college community provides many of them in
the course of a year-she is always ready to step in and take
charge, quietly and efficiently.
But, We cannot write of Lady Alice without mentioning
her one great pet and companion, Gussie. Never has there
been a more famous Ford on this campus-nor, some say, a
more rambunctious one. But what care We for a few garage
doors and nasty stone pillars? QThey shouldn't have gotten in
the way.j So long as we can hear the toot of Gussie's horn and
see Lady Alice go whizzing by, with a cheery Wave of her
hand, everything's dandy.
As one combs one's memories of Miss Bingle, one finds
many joyful fragments-steak-roasts at the f'Magic Carpet,"
happy afternoons in Iune when there is tea on the Clinic
porch, gloomy Winter days abed made bright by her cheery
presence, and the Howers in Gussie's vase.

TRADITION AND LEAP WEEK
r--HH-Q, 1-IBN Antioch adopted Leap Week, which gave
yy .W Antioch women the right to date men, a
K fl tradition was disregarded, namely, the tradition of
ii AMAA giving all dating rights to the men.
During the first semester of this year one week was set
aside in each division for the purpose of allowing women to
use this newly adopted plan and permit them to become ini-
tiated in the mysteries of dating men. Sprucd Cottage was the
scene of supper parties. Dinner and coffee dates took place at
the Maples and the tea room. Baker House common room
and faculty homes enjoyed informal parties arranged by the
women. There followed dances on Saturdays which were paid
for by the ladies and the men were enabled to find out how
they rated in popularity. It was a revelation and incidently an
interesting experiment for those involved.
With the passing of Leap Week at Antioch, there remains
an awakened interest in social problems, uncovered by this
reversing of the tables between the usual relations existing be-
tween the men and women. The progress evolving from this
newly established tradition will be interesting to watch.

EXCERPTS FROM A LETTER
AM writing tonight in the back office of the Book-
" 1" . . . - P
.X 1 Wifi plate Shop. Ernie IS out in the shop running o i
some copies of a zinc etching. Only we two and the
J cat are here, and the shop is silent except for the
thud of Ernie's press and the music of the radio. I call it silence
for the sound of the presses and the radio is always here, like
the smell of printer's ink. . . The shop is really a shed tacked
on the back of an old Yellow Springs house. It is a long, low
place, full of all the fascinating things printers use and per-
meated With a sort of busy disorder. Erniels shop is full of
activity, but it has none of the ugly tension common to Ameri-
can industry. The people who wander in may be anyone or no
one in the college world, but once they have strolled through
the door of the shop they relax their steps and their little pro-
tective mannerisms, and stand out clearly as persons, with odd
but fascinating patterns of likes and dislikes-and most of
them with a particular scheme for saving the world.
This shop is a place one must learn to know as gradually
as though one were making a friend. It has some of the busy
serenity of a mother who realizes that few lives are richer than
hers. You and I know that houses are homes if you live in
them enough, and that homes are never forgotten. Certainly
the Bookplate Shop will never be forgotteng we have done
entirely too much living there. The Bookplate Shop is the
back door to the college and we are the people who prefer it
to the spacious entrance. Some of us could not make the
adjustment to the duller, saner life of the rest of the school 5

some of us did, and found it empty. We take the shapeless
mass of information that we have picked up to the shop and
there we hammer it into an education that is decidedly rough
in spots, but it is full of meaning to us because we made it.
Oh, wonderful things happen herel Great dreams are
dreamed recklessly, glittering brainstorms are organized into
clear thought. Lovely theories are cut to pieces by sharp
tongues. Tales of co-op jobs, of Germany, of China, are gleefully
recounted. The faults of the world in general and of our col-
lege world in particular are discussed with the intensity pecu-
liar to people who still believe something can be done about
it. The Blaze grew out of this, and so did various campaigns
for the betterment of Antioch, such as the one for community
You must be finding it a little hard to believe by this
time. I wish I could make you see it as clearly as I saw it yes-
terday afternoon, with the backdoor open to the spring air
and the sun coming Warm through the windows. Four of us
were working there on the Blaze, very gay because of the
spring and the radio's delightful music. Once I laid down the
proof I was reading to walk to the back door and watch the
village horseshoe game. When I turned back to the shop and
to the three people with whom I shared the strong bonds of
honest friendship and common dreams, I realized for one
brilliant moment all-that the low room held: its careless lack
of convention, its clear thought, its good music and rich
laughter, its generous enthusiasm and vibrant life.

THE YELLOW SPRING
There's a stream that Hows mute from a source underground
Through caverns unsunned far below
But it breaks to the light at last out from a mound
On the brink of the glen that we know.
Here's mystery deep, and there's magic besides,
For the spring like an alchemist old
Transmutes the dull rocks in the bed where it glides
'Til they glow with a tinge as of gold.
We asked as we mused by the weird yellow spring:
"I-Iow far and how long have you run?
And whence comes the witchery wild that you fling
O'er the rocks as you break to the sun P"
We asked, but the spring uttered never a word
To our questions. Then suddenly fell
A sound o'er the woods, from the twin towers we heard
The call of the Antioch bell.

page was a month long and four weeks wide-
M- and disconcertingly blank.
With a mighty sigh the scribe picked up her pen and set
to work. For she was none other than the editor of the Calen-
dar Section of the 1930 Towers, and the pages were the months
of that year at Antioch.
With a hesitancy born of inexperience, she chose a spot
for September 9 and recorded there, icMIXER.77 In the weeks
that followed, her pen was often in her hand. She marked
down many symbols for dances--Saturday night dances with
confetti, crazy hats, Eskimo pies, spot-lightsg the Hanchett
Hall Formal, the Baker House Reunion 5 signs for steak-roasts
and for sleigh-rides, signs for Leap Weeks and the new Little
Theater and for Open House. The sheets became torn at the
edges and blotted and smudged with ink.
Then one day the scribe looked at her work and a strange
thought came into her mind. Some people might have called
it genius, others would say it was simply laziness. At any rate
this reckless scribe snatched up gleaming scissors and started
cutting busily. When she had finished she crumpled up the
scraps of months that were left and threw them far away.
The pieces that were left she put into neat little piles and
bound them together with broad ribbons that she called "the
spirit of the thing"-or in an unguarded moment, Hessencef'

The scribe, it seems, had grown weary of all those signs,
so many of them exactly alike, so she had chosen this Way to
keep her calendar. And when the end of the year came and
the Chief Scribe came to her for her record, she showed him
the gayly bound packets and smiled pleadingly into his eyes,
for she wanted him to be pleased.
But the Chief Scribe only took them gravely and said to
her, "It is not for me, my child. It is for these others that you
are keeping watch." And he pointed far off in the distance to
a land where crowds of people moved about under three huge
banners-The Past, The Present, and The Future.
Then he Went away, taking the little packets with him,
and the girl stood on the hillside where he had left her, strain-
ing forward to see into the distance and learn if her gift would

youth sent from the arms of one maiden to another,
and on with the dance! Of such stuff, Leap Dances.

Freedom! Equality! Something new! Under one or an-
other cry, Leap Week came into being. Under even more cries
its fame spread so that all the world soon knew that Antioch
girls called for their boy friends in taxis.
Three times that week was given to the fair ones to make
their wishes known-and to pay the bills. Ioe found himself in
the unusual position of wondering if he would have a date on
Saturday night! And Iosephine smiled and let him squirm.
Nay, more, she asked the charming professor of Marfrenstry
to have dinner with her, and provided a rumble seat to escort
him to the feast.
Later, when Leap Week proper met reverses, another in-
novation was tried in the form of a "Hard Times" dance with
the stag-line thrown open equally to men and women. The in-
formality of hobo attire gave courage to the faint-hearted and
one of the most successful dances of the year resulted with a
very respectable showing of "cuts" by both the fair and the

Another noteworthy result of the affair, fostered by the

the return of an old favorite-the "Bowery Ball"-for the
following Saturday night, with 'mixed cutting as before.
Thus social equality carries on.
Highlights for the year's social events include:

by Parliament, Division A.
Strenuous objection to resolution and no vote, Division B.
Three Leap Dances fone impossible Leap Orchestraj.

F O R M A L
i-na course of the formal dance at Antioch serves as
an index to more than one happening in the back-
ground. Time was when "The Div," once every
- e - five weeks, afforded the only chance for the fem-
inine glitter and the masculine discomfort of formal dress.
Even then the barbaric setting of classroom-cloakrooms and
gymnasium dance-floors allowed sport coats to hold sway over
soft evening wraps and discouraged those feminine 'cces-
soriesn that mark the conventional formal affair.
This year, however, has seen a change at which the Old
Guard levels a suspicious eye. "Formal" is rapidly becoming
more and more formal. Few gallants now defy the Order of
the Tuxedo. Even Moxie and Nan have been left behind, and
Div Dance night sees a pilgrimage to The Lantern, Shawnee,
and Pirate's Den in place of the old stampede for the white-
topped tables and "The Counter."
To the Old Guard it looks like a trend toward the collegi-
ate-and that is death! To the Dorm Committee it looks like
a desire on the part of the younger generation to sit up late-
and that is annoying!

Another sign of the times is the tendency to patronize the
new Biltmore in Dayton-even to the point of forsaking "The
Div" in its favor. Behind this 'move we see a discontent with
the dances this year which is based on the inability of one
small group to bear the burden of the entire social program.
With the breakup of the organized halls it became necessary
for the Social Committee to execute every dance. The con-
centrated mental and manual labor that produced such dances
as the "Monte Carlo," "Toyland," and "The Balloon Dancen
was no longer available and decorations were cut to a mini-
mum. Thus "The Div" lost some of its glamour-and patron-
In spite of the difiiculties encountered, however, the Social
Committees performed a good job. We remember with special
pleasure the take-off for the year at "Glen Iunction" and "The
Dance of the Year" with Father Time Walmsley whisking us
through a year in an evening. The Sophomores came to the
rescue finally with the "Faculty Frolic" and as we go to press
rumors already 'reach us of plans for a gorgeous "Prom."
Long live "The Div!"

Saturday we tear things to pieces. The attic door creaks
open and shut while strangely costumed figures come totter-
ing through the halls laden with absolutely anything from
bridge-lamps to pin-cushions. What can't be put into trunks
and boxes is offered disarmingly to 'KC Specials" who find
themselves presented with extra winter coats, Easter eggs, and
bitter-sweet. Corridors become tortuous passageways, offering
numberless opportunities for cracked shins, and the back
entryway of North Hall is piled high with "stuff for the
Lodge." Everywhere is the dreariness of household gods de-
posed. And outside, it rains.
For those on the job, it is a day of restless haste to be on
the way. Traction, train, and cars in various stages of repair
wend the way back to Antioch. Through the drizzling rain
the "Workers" return to play the "scholar,'l and their alter-
nates go out to carry on.
Sunday there are rifts in the clouds and signs of a new
"settlement" in the dorms. Old friendships renewed and gen-
uine enthusiasm over the tea room menu. New resolutions to
keep after the old books. Mud drying beneath the sun.

that swarm of interestingly-clad people gathering
' - -- on the quadrangle one sunny spring afternoon.
The advent of Community Service has made Clean-up Day an
orderly affair with captains, lieutenants and water-boys to run
events through in record time. Shovels, rakes, and bushel-
baskets are distributed generously and assignments to sections
and type of work are offered with business-like precision. A
feeling which very nearly approaches civic pride thrusts even
laziest of Antiochians into the ranks and for those who fail
to answer roll a search is instituted.
No matter if the Messrs. Magruder and Hanchett appear
to be arrayed for golfg today they swing the pick-axe. Sammy
stands by disconsolately while all the bones he has hidden
away pile up with the snaky line of leaves and rubbish which
follows the rake brigade Cno punj across the campus. Fem-
inine fingers uncover to the sun tender green blades that lie
hesitating beneath the dead leaves. Flames leap from the piled-
up gleanings and the smell of woodsrnoke drifts over the
workers. Popular music blares out in a lively chant to keep the
shovels in time.
Color tinges the western sky as the quiet of late afternoon
comes on. The confused shouting of the early afternoon has
given way to only occasional bantering that echoes in the
growing silence. Healthy outdoor tiredness hangs on the al-
most civic Antiochians who check in their rakes and baskets
and water-pails. Clean-up Day has left its mark once more-
on all but the rear of South Hall.

-' N A sorr rather discouraging mist a group of pro-
, tant sophomores to the east front steps of the main
building. This was the official ushering in of hazing
week for Division B-that more or less delightful event ex-
perienced and shall we say anticipated by every 'timid fresh-
man who hopefully enters the portals of learning throughout
the country. It was as motley an array as was ever gathered in
front of those steps-beggars, ballet dancers, peasants, gypsies,
and the usual nondescript outfits procured at the last minute.
All this in place of the customary pajama parade which the
sophomores this year had tactfully voted to abolish, While still
retaining some device to "put the freshman in his placef'
All this whoopee apparently had little effect on the village,
for it calmly ate its supper and put its children to bed as the
column of freshmen, guided, prodded, and otherwise assisted
by the sophomores, wound its way down town. We have it
firsthand that the boys, what with paddling and leap-frogging,
fared far worse than the girlsg but ask any girl what it feels
like to sing the Alma Mater for the nth time.

Jazz, Moxie, and Nan were properly serenaded, cheered
and yodeled to as a mark of regard for our three patron
saints, after which everyone proceeded to the pavilion where
inspection took place and prizes were awarded.
Be it remembered, too, that this event initiated Antioclfs
first Leap Week. Several of the girls, bearing this in mind,
had worked up a stunt portraying an exaggerated idea of
social equality, and some of the geniuses from South Hall put
forth their best in the way of entertainment.
Hazing in modified forms followed the freshmen through-
out part of the remaining division. To their chagrin, they lost
all the freshman-sophomore events and as a consequence were
theoretically under the thumbs of their elders the rest of the
period. Blue berets, lusty singing of the Alma Mater etc. were
very much in evidence for a time.
In conclusion, with humble apologies to Pope:
"Too little frolic is a dangerous thing."
"The freshman never is, always to be blessed."

mi -E! A ' POBABLY the outstandin event of the year in An-
55 -, i' - g
tioch's musical program is the establishment of a
Victrola record library of fine music. It is believed
l""':iil Q L1 that Antioch is the second American college to do
this, and it was made possible by the gift of the class of '28.
The library now contains the major works of Beethoven, Bach,
Brahms, Haydn, Schubert, Tschaikowsky, Wagner, ancl others
are constantly being added. Not the least value of these pro-
grams comes from the words of explanation given by Mr. Pil-
lard, Mr. Terborgh, and Mr. Watson at the different concerts.
The band has been most active, and under students, Ku-
min, Mattoon, and Peacock, has played at assemblies, athletic
meets, indoor and outdoor concerts, and furnished the music
for the town I-Iallowe'en Festival. Striving, as it always has,
for quality and not quantity, the orchestra's procedure is to
provide a finished program at musical vespers each period.
Mrs. Broda, as director, has acquainted them with continental
music that is unknown in America, such as the opera of the
French Revolution, Der Kuhreigen, and the beautiful Der
Ewzngeliman. The glee clubs under Mr. Dean follow the
same plan, usually giving a joint program with the orchestra.
Quartets, trios, and solos, both vocal and instrumental, have
appeared and played for the community, as well as a visiting
violinist, Michael Wilkimirsky.

K lights of the mammoth stage. Somewhere, from
llnglfgfcg afar off it seemed, a thread of melody wavered
"gi tenderly. My eyes sought in vain for the player.
Every man on that platform seemed turned to stone.
The wisp floated to every corner of the hall. Were the
lights turned low-or was it only a trick of the imagination,
fostered by those fairy-like notes.
A gleam of light on brasses lifted stealthily to position, a
careful attendance to the conductor, then the melody was re-
enforced-now by viols, now the wind instruments. With a
crashing harmony the entire company joined the drama. The
agitated bowing of fifty violins made that half of the stage
look as if some giant and many-legged insect had been flipped
there on its back by a greater giant who even now perhaps sat
on a mountain-top and chuckled at the crazily waving legs.
The cellists, erect and aloof, bent woodenly in perfect
rhythm, like so many puppets controlled by one guiding
The director had become a crazy demon. His whole body

TI-IE SAMUEL S. FELS FUND
HROUGH the gift of Mr. Samuel S. Fels of
phia, a fund of 1ir5o,ooo has been established at
Antioch College for medical research in the Held
' H Nil' of child development. Mr. Fel's interest and curios-
ity concerning the efiect upon children of varying environ-
mental factors during and after the prenatal period are re-
sponsible for the creation of such a fund.
The research consists of study and observation of mothers
and children of varying economic conditions who live in
Greene and Montgomery counties. During pregnancy, the
mothers are interviewed at regular intervals by physicians who
are members of the Fels group, and records of all relevant in-
fluences are compiled and studied. After birth the child is under
the observation and study of the Fels Fund for a period of ten
or fifteen years. The eHorts of the Fels staff are directed toward
including in their observations every factor which may be of
importance in the physical and mental growth of the child. The
project is unique in that no other study, up to the present
time, has considered the factors influencing intra-uterine de-
velopment, in the light of their effect upon the child.
The study is broad in its scope and its establishment at
Antioch is of beneHt both to the foundation and to the col-
lege. Members of the psychology department supervise the
periodic measurements of mental achievement which are done
throughout the entire ten year period-a work of distinct

value to the Fels project. On the other hand, this activity on
the part of the psychology department permits students inter-
ested in that field to assist in the conduct of the tests and par-
ticipate in child observation.
The assistance rendered the Fels Foundation by the de-
partment of home economics is extremely valuable. Diet of
the mother during the prenatal period is an important factor
both in the health of the mother and that of the child. The
department of home economics prepares diet lists for the
mothers and reduces the data obtained from diets actually
followed to qualitative basic food elements. Students in the de-
partment are given the opportunity to do part of this Work
under careful supervision.
Cooperation with the college medical department makes
available X-ray photography in growth study.
The Fels Fund has been established less than a year. The
possibilities of this particular kind of research are only begin-
ning to be realized. As the work progresses it is hoped that a
real contribution may be made to existing information regard-
ing prenatal hygiene and child development.

It was dark
After the rain.
And the air smelled clean
As it nipped
At my hands
And my face
With a sting.
For I was glad. What Youth could help but feel the

Yet not bare,
For the slightest trace of laccry,

To similar effort.

The campus organizations have been narrowed down,
then to the Antioch Union, the American Society of Civil
Engineers, Parliament, the Women's Athletic Association, the
Music Department, the Players, and the publications-Am
tioclzian, Blaze, "A" Boolg, and the Towers. These are the
organizations which will be included in the following pages.
There are, however, a few societies and associations about
the campus to which we have not devoted space but which
should have mention. Among these are Community Council,
Student Loan Association, League for the Organization of
Progress, and the Antioch Chapter of the League of Nations.

derived new life under his systematic organization.
On December I3 an evening of one act plays was present-
ed. They were Finders Keepers, by George Kellyg The Pearl

Kirkpatrick. The Pearl of Dawn called for ten scenes and sets
in all the splendor of the East.
Division B saw another evening of one act plays given by
the Iunior Players on Ianuary 31, 1930. These were Antiques,
by Claire Kummerg The Turtle Dove, by Margaret Scott
Oliverg and The Old Lady Shows Her Medals, by Sir Iames
M. Barrie. The high spot of the evening was the Barrie piece,
one of the finest of one act plays.
The March winds brought with them the first production
of the Senior Players when The Thirteenth Chair by Bayard
Veiller was presented on March 7.
The second Senior production was Bernard Shaw's com-

to the sparkling wit and brilliant conversation of Mr. Shaw in
one of his most pleasant comedies.
On May 2, 1930, Mr. Pillard, in collaboration with The

the organization of the Engineer's Club in the fall of 1924.
This original group saw the benefits of a national society and

ilege to establish a student chapter at Antioch. The petition
was granted in 1925 and since that time the club has been
cooperating with the national society as a student chapter in

Mr. W. I. Norton, father of Iohn Norton-an Antioch
student-presented the Union this year with a thousand tulip
bulbs. These have been planted in various parts of the campus.
The Union has been handicapped this year by weather
difficulties and the fact that a large deficit was left from last
year. More than 55900 was spent on campus improvements in
1928-29 and it was necessary to make up the deficit caused by
this rather large expenditure, before the Union could go ahead
with a more constructive program.

HE Azztiochian, tossed for many years from editor to
editor like a hot potato no one can hold, finally cut
a more respectable niche for itself in the gallery of
' Antioch institutions with the decision of the com-
munity government in March, 1930, to convert the editorship
into a "C Special" job paying ten dollars a week. Added to
the new dignity of having a paid chief was the promise of an
oliice in the basement of the main building. i
The Antiochiarfs course during the school year, 1929-30
included the usual violent ups and downs. A wild scramble for
an Alnzioclzian editor at the beginning of the first Division A
brought a reluctant acceptance of the responsibility from Iohn
Howard. Paul Munson followed, though forewarned by five
weeks of editorship the preceding spring. During this second
division, Iohn Frye, dynamic managing editor, made up a six
column sheet which put a decided crimp in student wails over
the low estate of their paper. Opal Davis, succeeding to the
editorship in the second Division A, maintained the six-
column size with Frye again as managing editor. Munson re-
turned to the editorship following Christmas vacation, to be
succeeded, after resigning in company with the key-men of
his staff, by Opal Davis. After five weeks of editorial difficulties
and successes, Opal Davis gave over the journalistic reins to
William B. Lloyd, editor at the time this book goes to press.

Over the fire, hanging on a crotched stick, was a pot of
stew. The steam, mixed with the pungent smoke, made a
most appetizing and enticing odor. With a long stick, one of
the ltrio, apparently the cook, would stir the mess. He was
short and pudgy-faced.
"Funny it don't come." The man sitting opposite the
cook had spoken. Over one of his eyes hung a patch. His face
was continually twitching and had a gaunt appearance.

ously dipped it into the stew with one hand while he took the
second cup from the patch-eyed individual, with the other. He
gave them both their respective shares and produced a cup
from the mysterious depths of his copious coat pocket. When
they all were ready the repast noisily began. The silence of
hunger being satisfied prevailed. Conversation was replaced by
the noisy chewing and gulping of the slum-gum.
"What do you think of it, Patchy?" Patchy started to
answer but was forced to stop by a spasm of lung-racking
coughs. The other two looked at each other and shook their
heads. 'When the coughing stopped he lay back weakly on the
ground, moaning occasionally.
"Getting cooler, eh Patehyf' The rat-faced hunchback
looked at the Hgure on the ground with pity in his eyes. The
cook poked the Ere into a bed of neat coals, sat back and drew
forth from the same mysterious pocket remnants of a sturnpy
pipe. This he proceeded to pack and light. He sucked the
smoke deep into his lungs, looking at the glowing bowl as he
exhaled the smoke slowly through his nostrils.
For some moments no one spoke. The fire simmered
down to a small bed of shimmering coals, occasionally crack-
ing and shooting a spark towards the worn shoes of the men.
From the distance, far across the river, echoed a long low
blast of a train's whistle, followed by three short blasts. A head

the oncoming train increased. All three instinctively crouched
as the glare of the headlight became stronger. The engine
struggled' up the grade past them, belching great clouds of
steam and smoke. The heat of the -I-irebox blasted their faces.

OUTDOOR LIFE AT ANTIOCH
with rz few exceptions
ROM the moment the first robin appears in the sprin
37,5 till the arrival of the first blizzard and influenza in
fl 'l ' g the fall, Antioch life is predominantly outdoor. Not
only the sporting life but even the academic and
social life occurs under the open sky. This outdoor life appears
in many and various forms, ranging from steak roasts to a
collation on the campus fwhatever that isj at commencement.
Perhaps we should begin with steak roasts which consume
much of the time. These functions are gotten up either by a
hall, for some unaccountable reason, or by a group of girls for
the dual purpose of showing off their domesticity to their boy
friends as Well as getting a date for some of their less fortu-
nate friends f"She's adorable, you will like her a lot" sort of
Q. fir Ciifwix ,s
It has been our rare good fortune never to have lived in
a hall which felt that social life had gone into such a decline
that a steak roast was necessary to lift it out of the doldrums.
However we have been to several of the other variety, which
perhaps is the reason we are no longer the bright carefree
youth we once were.
The preliminary work for these little fetes is done by the
girls who are hostesses. They go down town and buy so many
pounds of what is apparently dog meat, potato chips, pickles,
coffee, paper plates etc., always forgetting something vital,
usually bread or sugar.
On the appointed evening two couples arrive shortly be-
fore dark, select a site and start to gather firewood-not too
hurriedly for the rest are due at any minute. Shortly afterwards
when it is pitch dark, the rest stumble in and ask why the
hell anyone ever picked such a lousy place for a fire and why
didn't you get more wood and other similar interrogations cal-
culated to add a note of gaiety to the occasion.
By this time the fire is a magnilicent smoke screen and
the original expeditionary forces retire to rest their srnarting
eyes, as do most of the others. No matter how starving any
member of the party was at the outset he is usually sated now.
There are always two or three, however, who will not let well
enough alone, and soon the Lucullan feast is being prepared.
A section of chicken wire is spread across the fire and the
steaks are placed upon it. After minor burns are received by
those attempting to cook the meat, the coffee is placed on the
fire and the party is Well under way.
After charred beef between bread has been downed with
gulps of luke warm coffee, and the more severe burns and
abrasions have been dressed, the guests wander off by twos for
-sirl, leaving the debris to be collected by some suffering
guest who then scuttles off to Moxie's for something to eat or
to the infirmary for necessary repairs.
There are hiking groups who rise at the crack of dawn
and trek for miles of a Sunday morning. We shall not attempt
to describe these affairs for the very excellent reason that under
no circumstances would we get up early on Sunday morning
to meet the Queen of Rumania, let alone hiking through the
Another very popular reason for staying away from one's
room is what is laughingly called swimming. It occupies some
seventy-five per cent of the waking hours of the last period in
the spring. The actual swimming is somewhat hampered
the fact that the Little Miami river resembles nothing so m
as vegetable soup. It is warm, it is muddy, and an assortment of
weeds continually float in it. These swimming parties pass by
the name of mayhem, battery and assault in ordinary society.
It is the Antioch equivalent to being taken for a ride, albeit it
passes for fun.
To go swimming one collects all of what one believes to be
one's friends, piles them into a car and zooms down to Grin-
nell's. After one or at most two persons paying the necessary
dimes for the party fit is an unwritten law that the majority
completely forget their moneyj, the car is driven down to the
dam. Then comes the Hrst fun. This consists of gathering up
the blankets, pillows, books, bathrobes, towels, cigarettes, and
victrola which accompany every such outing and crossing the
slimy narrow dam to the green pastures beyond where most
of the action takes place. After everything has been arranged,
one goes in the water. This consists of making a lot of noise,
then diving deeply and getting covered with mud. After
swimming a few hundred feet one immediately loses all in-
hibitions and starts to act as he feels toward everyone. Every
party contains a fellow who has never been there before, and
whose idea of good clean fun is to push someone over the
dam, a process which quickly and not too neatly removes the
skin from all knees and elbows, the seat from the bathing suit,
and in some cases the rocks below the dam give one nice
bruises g also a girl who thinks it is too screaming to pour
her bathing cap filled with Water upon someone who is asleep.
Other denizens of the place are people who push one off
of rafts, people who smoke all of your cigarettes, people who
throw handfuls of mud, people who go away leaving you to
turn off the victrola, and people who are bent on murder.
The advantages of the place are a cheap way to acquire a
coat of tan for the envy of one's friends 5 a semblance of cool-
ness from the sweltering days of early summer 5 a very inex-
pensive Way to entertain a date, and a very fine place to sleep
undisturbed by the boop-boop-a-doop of the dormitory life.
The sporting life is commented on in other sections. The
academic al fresco life consists of women hauling blankets
under available trees. They then bring all of the books in their
library out so that passing professors may be impressed. The
glare of the sun is usually so bright that they cannot read and
they consequently go to sleep, giving the campus a remarkable
resemblance to Lincoln Park.
In a family publication such as this We cannot go into
other forms of outdoor life which occupy a large share of the
xx, X 1 Z vrsrron on an afternoon, say in the last Division B,
might well imagine that Antioch is a physical edu-
cation institution. Driving east down North Col-
' 15' lege Street, he would pass four tennis courts in
use, with many persons waiting to play. Farther on, his atten-
tion would be drawn from the buildings to the varsity baseball
squad practicing, and a few dashing figures on the cinder
track. Two cars would pass him, one filled with men and
co-eds in bathing suits hastening towards Gri1mell's, and the
other with golf equipped students.
Passing the science building he would catch a glimpse of
an intramural baseball game in progress. Soon the sight of
co-eds in brilliant costumes playing hockey would greet him.
If by chance he should wander into the gymnasium, his illu-
sion would be completed. There would be gym classes, hand-
ball, boxing, wrestling, fencing, apparatus Work, and volley
ball for him to watch.
No need for the Dean to tell him that at Antioch the
physical side of life is not neglected.
THE NEW GYM
VARSITY SPORTS AT ANTIOCH
!HoULD varsity be abolished? .lt wasla burnin
tion last year and still lurks in Antioch minds. Last
yearls vote-which abolished football-left the rest
e of the varsity program undisturbed, but it did not
settle the question of its value, its success, or its future.
The argument for varsity athletics at Antioch is that it
presents an object towards which the emotional life of the stu-
dent may be directed. The weight of its defense must rest upon
the color it lends to Antioch life, the amount of loyalty and
sense of unity its fosters-in short, the emotional value to the
students, the love of college and esprit dc corps. Antioch aims
at all-round experience for its members. Varsity athletics can
help supply a phase of it.
The fate of varsity athletics, then, rests with the success or
failure of varsity teams. There arises the question of whether
successful teams can be produced under the cooperative plan
and in a college with as high academic standards as Antioch.
The records tend to show that men entering such sports as
football, baseball, and basket ball, which require long training
and strenuous conditioning are relatively unsuccessful, Whereas
those expending the more individual effort required in tennis,
golf, and fencing, are relatively successful. Football has already
been discarded. The remainder of the varsity sports must prove
by success that they deserve a place in the athletic program of
VARSITY BASKET BALL
THOSE freshmen who came to Antioch with an
4 inordinate lust for victory, the past basket ball sea-
son was undoubtedly a disappointment. Thirteen
'A We games were played in the fifteen weeks of the
season with only four of the thirteen victories for Antioch.
This was not calculated to raise a great pride in the breasts of
varsity loving students.
However, to those of us who have been at Antioch long
enough to know the general run of basket ball success and can
remember to what depths the fate of Antiochians at times has
fallen, the past season was heartening. For the first time in
years a team-that of Division B-won a majority of its games.
Three games won in a row is a veritable winning streak at
Antioch and many of the games were close enough to raise
hopes of victory!
The high points of the past season were the colorful if
'somewhat ludicrous reserve games-Antioch holding Wil-
mington to 19415 with only seven minutes to play-the rousing
victory over Urbana-two victories over the alumni-the win
over Cedarville to end a victorious Division B-Wilmington
stalling for the Hrst ten minutes of the last half with a one
point lead, terminated by an Antioch basket-and finally, at
the close of the season, the valiant up-hill fight against Earl-
ham which Antioch lost by one point.
The Division A team was captained by Iames Fyfe, the
Division B by Iames Earley.
The schedule for this season is as follows:
A pril 5-Dayton there
April 8-Cedarville here

technique on hot grounders.
The result of all this is seen by the students when the

ENNIS is :Antiochls reigning varsity sportg the only
one which has consistently retained the ability to
cope With the best college talent in this section.
In the last three years the greater majority of our
matches have been won, so that the interest lost in other var-
sity sports has been more than offset by that gained in tennis.
A large part of the success of tennis during the past three
seasons has been due to Walter Rutnam, Who, by his splendid
playing, his diligence, and his enthusiasm, has brought the sport
to a new high level of excellence. During this time he has
held, without menace, the number one position on the squad,
and in all his playing has lost but one OH his matches. He has
officially coached the team and given careful advice and coun-
cil to students who desired' to improve their game. Under his
leadership tennis could not but be successful.
Rutnam graduates this year. It is with sincere regrets that
those interested in tennis see him play his last on Antioch
courts. It is improbable, however, that his influence on the
game will cease with his departure.
NE day, four years ago, Giles Wetherill, an ex-
'I1 champion of New England high schools and
Michael Hitrovo, an ex-soldier, fenced a few bouts
E-f""I ' J l in Kelly Hall for fun, and from this meeting grew
the idea of varsity fencing. The lirst attempt to organize was
made in the following spring of 1926 and in the fall regular
fencing classes were started. During the winter only a few
men came out for the new sport and the whole affair wore an
atmosphere of casual play. There was a lack of equipment,
Werherill having only a few foils. However, that winter a gift
of fifteen foils was received from Mr. Strauss of New York,
the father of one of the students here. In the fall of 1927 masks
and jackets were purchased and regular classes inaugurated.
About 25 men and 20 women signed for participance in these
In the spring of 1929 these enthusiasts, organized under
the name of the Antioch Fencing Club and held its first
unofiicial meet with Wittenberg. This, as well as the meet in
the fall of the same year, resulted in overwhelming victories
In 192930 the Antioch fencing team had six oiiicial meets
with three institutions, the University of Cincinnati, Ohio
Northern University, and Wittenberg. In the spring of 1929,
these three schools together with Antioch, formed the Ohio
Intercollegiate Fencing Association, which promises a lively
time for our fencing teams in the future.
The men of Antiochls present teams are being coached by
Michael Hitrovo and the Women by Robert Overstreet.
NTIOCH is scarcely a country club, but it does boast
rl some enthusiastic and worthy golfers among its
Q4 students. The faculty-student golf meets have, in
' 'ee' -7- the past, been annual or semi-annual events in
which the student interest has been very evident. That the
legendary Antioch Golf Course-in the wilds of the glen-
Was ever attempted is proof that golf has a considerable fol-
lowing that will spare no effort in the furtherance of their
The desire on the part of the golfing element for inter-
collegiate competition led, in the spring of 1926, to its adaption
as a varsity sport. This season has been the fifth for the team.
In these seasons, a small group, without attracting a great deal
of attention, established a creditable record against opponents
ranging in power from Wittenberg to Pennsylvania State.
There have been, at all times, at least four golfers who could
play well enough to compete with the best that most colleges
have had to pit against them.
'The interest in golf is retarded by the lack of near-by
facilities. For practice or play, one must go either to Xenia
or Springfield. This lack of a course has made for a "Notre
Dame" schedule with most of its matches in foreign territory.
The ill-fated Antioch Golf Course was an effort to bring golf
Within the reach of more students.
The 1930 schedule consists of a match with Kenyon at
Gambier on May 7, a return match at either Springfield or
Xenia, and probable matches with Wittenberg. The present
team, including Henry Fisher, Iohn Burroughs, Irving Burr,
and Warren Burr is being managed by Orlo Williams.
N THE fall it is football, speedball, and tennis. In the
K W winter the student's interest is held by basket ball,
f a I va
handball, and fencing. Even volley ball occupies, in
its season, an important position in the Antioch
sport world. When spring comes, the indoor baseballs are
brought out onto the diamonds and the tennis courts are again
crowded and track meets play their attractive part in the sea-
son. The swimming carnival, too, makes a gala day out of an
ordinary one. Students will even be observed playing at the
comfortable game of quoits.
Is all this activity spontaneous? Hardly! We are not seden-
tary, but nevertheless all this enthusiasm, this organization,
comes from the outside. It is the result of a carefully planned
intramural program and the following pages will be devoted
to these widely enjoyed sports.
GROWTH OF MEN'S INTRAMURALS
HE intramural system of athletics was not born
Q plan Its development has been chiefly haphazard
rye ' rl Until 1926, five years after their inception, intra
murals did not achieve the dignity of an organization under
the auspices of the physical education department. Explaining
where intramurals at Antioch came from can best be done by
stating that, like Topsy, they just Ugrowedf'
The Hrst intramural teams were organized during the
school year 1921-22. Varsity letter men picked and coached
the teams, a series of basket ball games was played and the
championship of the school decided. Selections for the teams
were made from the campus at large and not limited to a
single hall. Later in the same year an attempt to organize an
outdoor baseball league failed, due to a famine of pitching and
catching talent. The following year, however, an indoor league
was started and has been active ever since.
In 1924 there was no varsity football team. Up until this
time no intramural football had been played, the varsity util-
izing the only available place on the campus. Students took
advantage of the passing of varsity to play intramural football
for the first time and it has proved very popular.
The first all-hall teams were put on the field by Hanchett
and Baker House. With the growth of organized halls, intra-
murals developed rapidly. Hanchett and Baker House, having
been the first two in the field, gained and maintained reputa-
tions for athletic supremacy which they have been able to
maintain until the introduction of rotation this year. With the
coming of rotation Nash has precipitated itself into the front
Since 1927 a cup for each of the major intramural sports,
touch football, basket ball, volley ball, and indoor baseball, has
been awarded to the hall who shows the best record for games
won and also for percentage participation during the season.
Although it is true that organized halls have played a major
part in development of intramurals, interest has never been as
strong as it has been this year.
in a carefully considered and well thought out
aj' g,,,,,gEJ LEVEN teams were entered in the first A division
football league by intramural representatives. The
games were to prove far more interesting this
' 'Ai' year due to new rules allowing cleated shoes.
Three weeks and a half, fair weather or foul, sulhced
to play the entire number of games on the two fields which
are now available for this sport. The Hnal game for the cham-
pionship was played between Baker House and Hanchett Hall
on October 8 and will long be remembered. The two teams
battled up and down the field in the closest game of touch
football ever seen around here. The only scores were made by
Roosa of Hanchett Hall and Wilcox of Baker House, both of
whom made one long, difiicult field goal apiece to end the
game in a 3-3 tie.
In Division B, when the faculty decided to enter a team,
it became necessary to form two leagues of seven teams apiece,
since every hall entered a iirst team and some a second. The
intramural committee balanced the two leagues as to strength
as far as was possible from the figures from previous years.
The Baker House Seconds were the outstanding group and
copped the medals by defeating Nash. In rainy weather fields
were usually in such poor condition that trick plays were im-
possible, so it may be said that straight football of the short pass
type won the title. About one hundred and eighty men partici-
pated in this division and there were only two accidents.
NTRAMURAL basket ball again proved that it is the
I QW! most popular of sports at Antioch by drawing fif-
teen teams in Division A. Nash Hall entered three
,, ll H
' ef teams, the lineup for the first team being prac-
tically the same as that of the year before. Although there
was plenty of competition Nash Firsts and Seconds walked
away with the titles in both circuits. This gave them the cup
without any of the doubt and careful figuring which usually
attends the awarding of the trophy.
In Division B sixteen teams participated, every hall being
represented in the first league and live in the second. Nash
again entered three teams. The issue was never in doubt from
the first game when West Hall entered the identical team with
which it had won the medals the previous year. Hanchett Hall
was the main contender for the honors. They did not draw a
game with West Hall during the season and so finished their
schedule with a percentage of 1.ooo. In the playoff West Hall
easily defeated them in a 20-5 game which showed a capacity
crowd some of the benefits which a group of fellows may ob-
tain from participating in the intramural program.
In the second league the Baker House Seconds won the
title by defeating Morgan Hall in a perliminary game to the
West Hall-Hanchett bout. This game provided plenty of
thrills although good basket ball was conspicuous by its ab-
sence. The men from the far side of the New Dormitory won
15-14, the ball being in the air when the timer's whistle ended
the game. The cup went to West Hall because of participation
and the second team winning third place.
All in all the 1929-30 basket ball season was the most suc-
cessful intramural period that Antioch has had.
HE third period for both divisions is past the basket
ball season and not quite up to the baseball time,
so volley ball is the major intramural sport. At
first-years ago, say the old timers-this game was
not considered so good, but in the past few season it has in-
creased in popularity until at the present it can hold up its
head quite as proudly as football and basket ball. To the un-
initiated onlooker, there seems to be but little skill required
in the game, but as one tries to lift hard serves clear of the net
or to spike the ball on a return, it becomes evident that this is
21 game that requires plenty of team work and practice before
one can expect to make a good showing. What with running,
leaping about nimbly, and socking at the ball with both hands,
there is plenty of chance for a first class workout and a few
thrills extra in a game of volley ball. The faculty-when not
too busy sitting in judgment upon the students-turn out and
trim most of the teams that the various halls can produce.
In Division A this year, Nash had everything its own way
in the first loop, producing one of the best intramural teams
seen around here for some time. The faculty scored six straight
wins but lost the championship to Nash in the playoif. A
large crowd witnessed the downfall of the more venerable
team which occurred on the fifth Wednesday of the period.
In the second league West defeated the Nash Seconds for the
championship. Nash Hall was awarded the cup for points.
.114 'N THE springtime, when shirts can be discarded and
I manly chests bared to catch the lackadaisical ener-
gies of Old Sol, ye industrious pursuers of knowl-
i"' edge dedicate their moral and physical support to
the swatting old pastime of indoor baseball. Faculty and pro-
teges alike may be seen expending their energies-to please
the fair members of North Hall-by swinging for a home run
only to come up with a meager foul tip to the catcher.
There are few students who do not take advantage of the
long summer evenings to either engage in the sport or to
stand along the sidelines and cheer for their favorite teams.
The faculty invariably has a good team. The sight of burly
Doc Adams covering first base, nimble Mr. Swinnerton stop-
ping fast ones on the keystone sack, and long Slim Dawson
pitching them over the plate to Bob Hiller adds much to the
color and sometimes to the amusement of the competition.
Intramural baseball is played with a soft indoor ball, but
it contains all the features of the hard ball game. Good batters
have no difficulty in hoisting long ones over the heads of the
racing outfielders and the pitchers perfect their underhand
delivery to the extent of throwing sharp curves and mixing
slow balls with fast ones in an effort to fool the batsmen.,
Most of the games are closely contested with lots of good
natured rivalry between the teams. Usually there are two
leagues and the playoff between the winning teams of each
league is a much heralded encounter, certain to be filled with
plenty of excitement, grandstand catches, and tight playing by
players who are not tight.
F ALL the minor sports that exist at Antioch, hiking
is perhaps the oldest and, if one is to believe the
physical education reports which are turned in, it
M -J "i3: T"'l"" is also the most popular. At least, it is the last
resort of a vast-although unknown-percentage who need
another hour to complete their required five for gym credit.
Aside from this, there are many who like to tramp all day in
the open with perhaps an open Ere and a few steaks for rc-
freshment. The glen and the gorge, as well as the many coun-
try roads offer excellent facilities for those who like to hike
to stretch their legs and rest their minds from study.
Next to hiking comes the urge that sends us down to the
"ole swimmin' hole" at Grinne11's as soon as the weather
grows the least bit encouraging. That the sport is popular is
attested by the numbers that dress in the least possible and
head millwards for a swim and a sunbath later. The water
carnival held every year is the high point of the season and
there is much rivalry both for individual and for hall honors.
Intramural track is a new addition to the athletic pro-
gram and if the popularity it experienced last year is repeated
this season, it will probably be here to stay. All the events of
the regular college meet were held with the exception of the
longer runs which call for too much training.
Handball is another one of the newcomers among intra-
mural sports, but with the completing of the new gym its
new devotees can be encountered at almost any hour of the
day or night chasing industriously an elusive black ball. While
it is doubtful if handball will be very popular during the last
two school periods when Old Sol gets in some real beaming,
for a cold, rainy, or otherwise disagreeable day it affords an
easy and pleasant method for getting a good workout in a
PROGRESS OF WOMEN'S
RoM the reorganizing of Antioch College until the
fall of IQZS, athletics for women were supervised by
men coaches and consisted entirely of intercollegi-
ate basket ball. The co-eds who could not play this
game were left to do their physical education in any way they
saw lit. In the fall of 1925 Miss Rowe was engaged to instruct
the girls and began by organizing hockey teams and marking
oh' the first field. There were only three games played during
the first season but since then the game has become the favor-
ite of all womenls sports. Volley ball was attempted but failed.
In the winter intercollegiate basket ball was voted out and
Miss Rowe immediately started intramural basket ball. This
was quite successful, six teams being organized and a tourna-
ment played. That spring the girls played baseball and had
track for the first time.
In I926 the W. A. A. was organized and took charge of
planning the intramural program. The Day House hockey
team played a practice game with the Moraine Park tearn of
Dayton, the first inter-school hockey game to be attempted.
Volley ball was again started and this year proved to be a suc-
cess. Basket ball was even more popular, and in the spring, be-
sides baseball games and track meets, there was the Hrst tennis
tournament for girls. At the end of the school year the W. A.
A. held a dinner in the tea room and awarded honors.
Miss Mayes arrived in 1927 and immediately reorganized
the hockey schedule so that sixteen games were played under
the same system as the men's intramurals.
The next year was a diliicult one due to the fact that there
was no adequate gym space. A second hockey tournament
was held and folk dancing inaugurated, which, together with
the field day held in the spring, kept the girls well occupied.
This last year has been the most successful of all. With the new
gymnasium there has been space or deck tennis and handball,
as well as for apparatus work, all of which are new. Basket
ball and volley ball have been played on an enlarged scale and
the W. A. A. is already looking forward to bigger and better
things in the future.
8, 5 Z NTIOCH co-eds are versatile! Nowhere does this state-
lfftdghiln -li ment hold so true as it does in the varied athletic
l WM if program which they have worked out. Despite the
limited number of halls in the Girls' Dorm they
have their intramural tournaments in all the major sports and
manage to make more noise at the games than the men do.
During the hockey season especially does excitement run rife
and even on moon light walks the conversation between
Antioch Ioe and Iosephine usually resolves itself into a mono-
logue on-hockey. These co-eds play their games for all that
there is in them, too, as many a minor clinic case proves, but
there is no stopping them and they always return to Miss
Mayes ready for participation in whatever game the weather
calls for-hockey, basket ball, baseball, volley ball, tumbling,
fencing, track, lacrosse, archery, or any of a dozen others.
WOMEN'S ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION

mazurka. Night air would bring her disease, the sun would
destroy her frail beauty, and calisthenics were imrnodest. Sup-
pose she were to peep into the girls' gym at Antioch-
She would throw up her hands in horror at the sight of
the trim, comfortable and non-restricting gym suits. She
would see her granddaughter performing on the parallel bars
or the ring. Others would be seen playing handball or deck
tennis. Sports, she would find, have a definite place in the
everyday routine of her modern ofispring.
It was three years ago, when Miss Hilda P. Mayes came to
Antioch, that the Women's Athletic Association gained a con-
stitution. Since then the W. A. A. has played an increasingly
large part in unifying and sponsoring athletic activities for
grandmother who lived most of her life inside
Outstanding in the year was the Old English Christmas
Party in costume which was held in the Tea Room. The Lord
of the Manor entertained his guests with all the trimmings of
an English 'manor at the Yuletide-carol singers, a boar's head,
and the Yule log. It is planned to make this an annual event.
In addition there were other social affairs given by the Asso-
ciation-hockey banquets, a barn dance, and freshman picnics.
Representatives of the Association have already gone to
Cincinnati and the University of Michigan to compete with

"' The e ""' '5 There are, of course, the usual gym classes to
which all the Freshmen and Sophomores come, togged out in
their black bloomers and jerseys and answer to the calls of,
"Atten-shun! Right-dress! Right-face! Forward-march!"
Besides this class work, there is an intramural tournament
which is run off each period. One of the favorite of the major
sports is basket ball, which is played during the Winter months.
Hall teams are organized and games are played for the cham-
pionship. More interest is shown in basket ball than in any
other sport except hockey. The joy of playing a hard game,
coupled with the needed skill in basket shooting, makes it a
favorite here as in schools all over America.
Another favorite indoor sport is that of volley ball. Not
only is it excellent exercise in stretching the muscles upward,
but it is a sport that demands good team Work and is "loads of
funl' besides. A good volley ball game is one of the most hair
raising pastimes, as the screams that emanate from the girls'
On rainy days in the fall and spring, tumbling seems to be
the order of the day. Then it is that some of the more youthful
co-eds turn somersaults with the most surprising ease, only to
be seen about the campus the next morning looking like the
"before" part of a Sloan's liniment ad.
Some of the more popular of the minor indoor sports are

have a gym floor all to themselves which
ffff ,Pr 1 i
HE "call of the wild" has a stronger appeal than
indoor activity, and judging from the long list
hikers we have, it is certainly so. With the beau-
'jfi-ixgl tiful glen so conveniently situated, it is only natural
that many should turn to this means of getting exercise. One
of the most healthful exercises, it is also one of the most en-
joyable, here at Antioch.
However, this is an individual sport and lacks the thrill
that a team game has. Hockey, one of the most highly organ-
ized team sports, is by far the most popular game for women
at Antioch. The crisp fresh air, the crack of stick on stick, and
the thud of many feet as the ball is rushed down the field,
gives a zest to this game that no other sport can.
Later in the year, about spring fever time, the old pill is
brought out of the moth balls and the promising pitchers of
the fair sex line themselves up in back of the gym and throw
balls at a chalk mark on the wall. This game is played with
a large soft ball according to the kittenball rules. This is an-
other game which brings some of the best blood out to play for
their halls, and although the girls may not compare with a few
of our illustrious gentlemen when it comes to catching Hies,
there are many who swing a mighty wicked bat.
Lacrosse is still in its infancy here, but bids fair to become
popular in time. There are any number of other sports such as
archery, horse-back riding, swimming, skating, tennis, and
speedball which are not minor because they lack appeal, but
because of the lack of time and facilities.
THE PARADE OF CHIMNEYS

drop forge! . . . The fascination of industry! . . . To
make one's way during the dark early morning
l Q' "' "e' ! hours among a group of laborers as they hurry to
the shop, to punch in with them, stand at the bench beside
them, labor throughout the morning and, when noon comes,
have lunch with them .... Thousands of them! Hundreds of
thousands of them! Immense factories! Roar of machinery!
Smoke, soot, grease! Mass production! . . . They struggle at
their various tiny operations . . . simple tasks, perhaps just the
movement of a hand. Beneath the flare of blue mercury lights,
in the haze of steam and smoke with the odor of fresh-cut steel
and hot motors! So simple! . . . yes! Day in and day out, year
in and year out they labor. Pushed when products are needed
most, laid off when the company deems it unwise to produce
further 3 . . . as cogs in a great machine, tools in the hands of a
world throbbing with the life and convenience they themselves
make possible. But do tl1ey mind? Were it not for their prod-
ucts the world would be at a standstill. Were it not for the
wor1d's use of their products they would be at a standstill.
Thus they are drawn into this vast whorl of industry, merely
to eke out an existence.

P H A N T A S Y
RI skeletal framework of a skyscraper, silhouetted
against a dull gray sky, attracted my attention. The
girders, beams, and columns fascinated me,-their
I unbelievable strength amazed me,-the implicit
faith placed in them by the engineers frightened me. How like
a house made of straws placed end on end!
My eyes wandered slowly toward the top. My amazement
was increased,-fright changed to terror as I watched a der-
rick perched on the topmost Hoor of the uncompleted building.
It was a derrick that might have been designed by a drunkard
or a dope addict, whose mind was cluttered with the unreal,
the fantastic, the absurd. It was a derrick whose innumerable
parts would have made it the realization of an engineer's
dream. It looked like a human hand with the power to grab
and to lift all that might be brought forth. Its unreal dimen-
sions superimposed on the building gave it a masterful touch.
I watched with awe as it slowly lifted a huge column to
its place. Suddenly there was a quiver in its gigantic boom
that seemed to rock the entire building to its basic caissons.
Then came the din of cracking and bending steel, of rivets
being ripped from their places, and the pitiful whining of
steel cable rushing madly on through pulleys was overwhelm-
The sight of the broken and twisted steel hurtling earth-
ward petrified me. It bumped against the side of the building
on its way down,-down,-down towards the earth and to the
ultimate destruction of all that lay within its path.
In the next 'moment the picture was changed. Only chaos
and destruction remained. Lives had been crushed out of ex-
istence by this falling giant,-property had been destroyed.
How quiet it was after that few seconds. It was the silence of
death,-the death of men and the death of a demon.

Holding the ladle with his left hand, he shut off the fuel
line while the foreman cut down the air blast. As the roar
died, a scoop of charcoal was dropped into the glowing maw,
causing it to cough a shower of crackling, orange sparks.
"Alright son-here she comes!"
From the lip of the dull red mouth, a stream of molten
white brass bubbled and gurgled into the ladle. It gave out a
sharp slapping sound as it gradually filled up. The ever-
increasing weight made him feel that he must drop the ladle
or have his arms torn from his scorching body. He dared not
take his seared eyes from the glowing stream for fear of
letting some of the metal spatter over his legs and feet.
"That's good! Hurry up with 'er and don't let it freeze!"
With a rapid dog-trot he jogged over to the pouring HOOI,
being careful not to spill the seething contents. As he poured
each mold it belched a cloud of green gaseous smoke. The re-
sulting sickish-sweet taste reminded him of a time when, as
a boy, he put a copper penny in his mouth. Sweat rolled tan-
talizingly down his face, back of his ears and dripped off his
chin onto his bare chest and arms. He longed to brush it away,
but dared not release the ladle handle.
Water !-was what he craved-water! A momentary pic-
ture flashed through his throbbing brain. He saw a long,
green lawn stretching away to a clear lake. OE the lake came
a breeze. A boy, like himself, stood with wide-spread arms,
deeply breathing the fresh lake air-
"Let's go, come on, 1et's go!" It was the foreman's voice.
The boy turned back to the scorching heat, the back aches,
the burning lungs and sweat soaked clothes . . . and worked
doggedly until the last metal from the seemingly bottomless
furnace was poured.

This book has been an experiment
in printing. The work was done on o17set
paper with an ordinary flat bed press
which involved dijieulties that only the
pressmen and printer can appreciate. The
printing of half-tones on this type of
paper offered additional problems but the
artistie atmosphere gained by the soft
nature of this paper has, we hope, justi-
fied the attempt.
The stay' wishes to thank the print-
ing establishment for its splendid eo-
operation and if our readers can but par-
tially appreeiate the energy expended in
this departure, our work has been well
