Fierce lions of war, used in past battle storms. II. The flag staff towered toward the sky, And at its summit did old glory fly, That banner which fills many hearts with pride, That banner loved throughout our country wide. III. The gates were by large cannon guarded These buildings strong, storage place afforded, A keeping safe, for cannon, sword and 81111, For. bravest soldiers, who great victories won. . V But now the Arsenal's history is changed, No more the soldiers and the can- non retained, Instead' our thriving school now proudly stands, Whose record is not equaled throughout many lands. V. Our school has now but two years grown, Yet it has great progress shown, And some day we'll make Tech the best, The greatest school in all the West. VI. And now instead of holding arms and swords, This Arsenal to each boy and girl affords A better chance to prepare for life, To conquer foes in war and strife. We hope the patriotism which once built these walls, May never leave our rooms and halls, That our lives be made better far, To wield more power than arms of War. 2 THE ARSENAL CANNON What an Outsider Knows About the Cannon "Hurry William! bring those arti- cles here," said Miss Shover, as she seemingly sailed out of "21" on her way to the office. This is one of the peculiar sights that are to be seen when the "Cannon" is being put into form for the printers. Boys are seen disappearing through the door- ways, with extremely long sheets of paper fluttering in the wind. Girls, with stacks of paper piled in their arms, run through rooms interrupting classes. Every one takes it good na- turedly because each knows that all this hustle and bustle is for their benefit. Students come straggling in- to their classes, one by one, and when asked for a tardy slip they declare that Miss Shover said that they did not need any. However the admit is not asked for the second time when the teacher discovers that the pupils had spent their time on the precious little paper. Neither do they say, "Why do you come to class without your lesson to-day?" For they know that to have a good paper, lots of time must be spent on it. If on some Friday morning a visi- tor would come to "Tech" he would readily come to the conclusion that the students were "a loud bunch." Every one grows restless, and cries of "Hurry up with the paper" issue from different parts of the room. At roll- call they grow still louder, but as soon as the papers come, every one quiets down until the room sounds like a bee hive. Some child in reading a hu- morous article snickers, and before long the whole session room is en- gulfed in laughter. As soon as the bell, announcing that roll-call is end- ed, you would hear," Say May! did you read the things Mr. Thomas found? l' think that powder puff is mine, and I heard Helen say that she lost a nail file and a small mirror exactly like the description of those in the paper." "Did you see the schedule?" yelled a boy as he dove under his desk after his books. "I'll bet you two-bits that we'll beat Man- ual every game, cause I know their team isn't nearly as good as ours." "Sure," issued from another corner of the room, "I think that our gar- dening is just the thing." On the fContinued on page twelvej Faculty Vacation The teachers of tech are going to spend their summer in various ways. Miss Atwood has a million little plans none of which are Very definitely worked out. One thing she's positive of though that she'll be at her home in La Grange, Illinois enlarging her wardrobe and making calls. Mr. Anderson intends to be at his home, Anderson Indiana, on the farm. Miss Abel has planned to attend Columbia University if nothing interferes. When asked where she was going to spend her vacation Miss Bard said mysteriously, "I'll be in Pennsyl- vania but Iwon't tell you any more." Miss Davis sails June 18 for France to study French and travel. Miss McLau- ghlin anticipates a veryenjoyable sum- mer on a ranch in northwestern Mon- tana. Mr. Hanna has decided to spend one half of the summer in Chicago University. Mr. Sanders thinks he will probably be employed by the school. Mr. Mills will probably spend his vaca- tion here. Miss Frick sails in July to be gone a year. This time will be spent in Bonn University. Miss Jasper knows she will not be at home and will prob- ably study. Mr. Collins has not deter- mined a portion of the summer, but th'ere's one thing settled: apart of it will be spent loafing Cas he expressed ith in Detroit, Michigan. Mr. Wedek- ing leaves Montreal June 20 on the S. S. Cassanra. Before going to Germany to study, he will travel some in Eng- land, Scotland and Holland- Miss McCullough will spend the summer in the lake region of Minnesota. Miss Binninger thinks she needs to be more enlightened, therefore she will attend Wisconsin University. Miss Payne said she's going to keep house in Kansas while the others go on a vacation. Art, metal work and jewelry are to occupy Mr. Craig's time 'luring the summer months. Part of his vacation Mr. Burckholtz will be at his home in Chicago. Mr. Mueller will probably use his time working in a shop in the drafting room. Mr. Stewart has made up his mind to stay in Indianapolis this summer. Mr. Spear said he had been pegging away in Bradley Poly Technic Institute at Peoria, Illinois and Stout Institute, located at Menomonie, Wisconsin, for some time. His efforts are to be awarded this summer by receiving two diplomas.

The first term of our school found Technical with three history classes, Miss Binninger's two history IA classes and Miss Shover's History I of thir- teen pupils. This last term found the history department with nine classes and a total of 237 pupils. There are two IA classes, three IIA classes, two I classes, one II class and one IV class. The history IA's this term studied the industries of the United States dealing especially with the Fisheries, Lumber, Fur and the domestic prob- lem.

This enterprise of es- tablishing the Arsenal was headed by Governor Morton. Just before the Civil War, by an act of the United States Congress, the Arsenal was es- tablished in Indianapolis. The site was selected by General Buckingham. Seven buildings were erected in 1873. The Arsenal and all the buildings re- main as the government built them. The magazine was used to store powder in. In the central easTe1Tn part of the Arsenal are the stables. With- in a stone's throw from the stables stands the barracks. There were three of these houses planned, al- though only one was built and used as quarters for the men. Our main school building was originally used as a storage for rifles and cartridges. The small building with the two porches, between the school building and the barracks, was used as an oflice. The shops were used to store artillery, and for machines used to cut out knap sacks and tin cups for use during the Spanish-American War. Altogether the Arsenal was a very formidable looking affair. It was built as a first class Arsenal cost- ing about a half million dollars. Later the Arsenal was reduced to a third class Arsenal. Many fine ofhcers have served and commanded at the Arsenal. Capt. Sturm, who was promoted to a Lieut. Colonel in 1862, was the Hrst com- mandant. Since then the changes were frequent and hard to keep track of. In 1899 the last change of com- mandants was made, and General Shaler was put in command. General Shaler was in command of the Arse- nal when it Was closed and evacuated. WM. ERVIN.

No more the soldier stalwart who guarded gates shut tight No more the sunset cannon which welcomed in the night, No more the countless firearms held firm with lock and key, , No more the dreary barracks where soldiers used to be. The Arsenal abandoned was left here to decay But, as you know, these modern times installed the schools today, And we will do our country a greater lasting good, Than Arsenals and soldiers or fire- arms ever would.

With the funds from these sub- scriptions, and from the sale of ex- tras, we have met all the running ex- penses of the paper, and have not been forced to depend upon the sale of a single advertisement. Your support has been balanced by that of the members of the staH. These students, coming from each of the four classes whfich have, thus far, entered Tech, have combined all school knowledge and interests, and there- fore have made a genuinely represen- tative group. They volunteered their services, and have stayed with their guns. fPerh'aps I should say, with their pens and "The Cannon."j If our paper has in any way pleased you, it owes that pleasure to the un- usual co-operation and conscientious work of the staff, and to their willing- ness to do their best regardless of time or work. It is with pleasure that I offer this, the report of these eight numbers of "The Arsenal Cannon." ESTHER FAY SHOVER, Adviser 0:0 0:0 ore! - Candidates From present indications the staff will have ,an over supply of students who will be willing to do some hard work ofiltht-3 paper next term. In all the English classes a census has been talcen- of ihow many students desire to J c , nv. v be connected with the "Arsenal Can- non" next term. On this list one hundred and seventy one names have come in. We also count on some of the Freshmen who will enter next term. Out of this number seventeen of the present staff are candidates for offices next year, and of the entire number about twenty five will be chosen to sit in the editorial room. From the remaining number, reporters will be chosen. We are sorry we cannot use the entire number. Those students not elected this time may qualify as reporters and so prove their righfts to become staff members in January. 0 0 0 0.0 0.0 0.0 Contributions ' During the past term allof the Tech classes have been represented through the columns of our paper. Many articles have come from people who are not on th-e staff. This is certainly pleasing. Although the staff has written many articles, twelve of the longer contributions of this June Issue have been written by out- siders. i Rooms twenty and thirty-seven led in the number of contributions from session rooms. Of the staii' members' articles, Newell Hall, Bertha Ruby, and Lehman Holliday have written the greatest number. Watch the i Birdie The people who hold sway in the editorial room filed, like so many geese, through Miss Atwood's room Wednesday morning on their way out to the campus. The march occured during that mysterious time known as editorial hour. "Where can they be going? Surely, thirty-five members of the Cannon staff are not going to pose for a pic- ture?" "Yes, it's so, they're going right toward a bright, sunny spot on the campus." So the exclamations could be heard. The place chosen for the posing was under a heavily foliaged tree near the walk. Of course the girls had to fix up just a tiny bit, but more protests about looks were heard from the boys. One insisted that he wasn't going to have his picture taken, but soon con- sented to the pleadings of a very charming young lady. Another gen- fConti1med on page sixteenj 6 THE ARSENAL CANNON School Gardens The agriculture course last summer comprised of Botany, "Bugology" and Gardening. The things which were to be emphasized in Botany were giv- en to different members of the class for class talks. The subject of one talk was "Harmful Weeds in Indi- ana." We collected weeds which we studied carefully. In our note-books we sketched seeds in their different stages. One experiment I especially remember was the test of soil. We found what percentage of water was held in each kind of soil. The soil being clay, humus, silt and loam. In "Bugology" we learned many different birds. We also found what insects and beetles were injurious to plants. The collection commonly known as the bug collection proved interesting in its three different stag- esg catching, killing and mounting. As for the gardening' it was done sys- tematically as well as other parts of the course. The gardens were ploughed, but the ground had to be thoroughly pulverized before any planting was done. The rows in each garden all ran one way. The vegeta- bles were plated in pleasing arrange- ment andl not a bed of onions next to a bed of iiowers. Although I used at home what I gathered, the profit proved to be more than I expected. I had Howers. toma- toes, lima beans, string beans. beets and corn in mv garden. The tomatoes and corn yielded the best. Of the high school pupils who took the course, the best gardens were those of Robert I-Iainlin, who sold products amount- ing to twelve dollars and twenty-four cents, Paul Heath who realized ten dol- lars and eight cents. Charlotte Milton, ten dollars, and Ruth Rebolt nine dol- lars and twenty-eight cents. The two best gardens of those who were then in the grade schools were those belonging to Elinor Carpenter. who made five dollars and forty-four cents, and Leo Qamuals who made six dollars and fourtv cents. The total amount made was three hundred and one dollars and seventy-two cents. The average for the high school boys' gardens was four fifllns and seventy-six cents. for the high school girls, three dollars and twentv cents. The average for those from the grade schools was two dollars fC0'VLt'i'VLued on page sevenj Agriculture Although Agriculture was a new subject at Tech this year, it was a great success. During the first of the term, we had our work from our text books. This was enjoyed by all the class as it was a very interesting subject. Some of the subjects that we studied were fertilizing, insects, and milk. During the time that we studied milk, we took a trip to Polk's Milk Plant. This proved to be very interesting as everything was ex- plained to us fully. After we finished the work in our text books, we took up some experiment Work. The base- ment was made into an indoor gar- den. We planted cabbage seeds in some bins which were made on tables down in the basement. We also plant- ed pansy, phlox and verbenia seeds in flower pots. One particularly inter- esting experiment was with corn. We took four flower pots and put saw- dust, humus, clay and sand in the respective pots. We then put corn into each flower pot. This experiment proved that corn came up first in the saw-dust, second in the sand, third in the humus and fourth in the clay. As soon as this work was done, and the weather was warm enough our work was taken up in the garden. Each pupil was assigned a garden ten feet by eighty-six. We planted this plot in lettuce, radislres, beans, potatoes, corn, peas, and tomatoes. We were allowed to select any vegetables we wished. Many new and practical things are to be learned in this course. One of the chief reasons for our liking this course is the many privileges it affords over those of the school room. Mr. Sanders promised us we could talk and yell as much as we wished when we got out doors. We certainly made good use of this privilege. We dis- cussed every topic that would in any way interest any one of the class. When we were in a jolly mood, we would discuss such silly topics as the circusg but when we were in a more serious one, we entertained ourselves by talking of Latin and chiefly, Miles Drake's future. During the first of the Mexican trouble, our class was very much distressed because we thought we were going to have to give up Paul Burns to go to Mexico to settle the trouble, but very much to fConti1zued on page s'i:1cteen.J THE ARSENAL CANNON 7 Latin fContimwd from page three!

In spite of a late start to cover the ground, They are only moved by this spirit around. Which now broadcast has gained such fame, That over our city bears the name of Tech spirit. Long may it live.

The pose work was resumed-the students drawing the whole figure. The pupils in the class took turns in posingusually dressed in some costume to represent some definite character such as a gypsy, a country boy, or a cowboy. A few Water color sketches were tried and also pencil and charcoal sketches which were quite successful. Still Life in time will be another phase of the term work. In the drawing I's class they had furniture design at the first of the term and they followed this in the order given with Still Life, printing, cast drawing and perspective. Drawing II's put in the first six weeks of the term designing projects for the turning. They then turned their attention to Still Life, printing, cast drawing, and perspective. Other drawingl classes have handed in some artistic studies. The term began with nature work. Flowers of different kinds were provided, and they were worked out in water color and pencil. Then came designing. They worked out border and all over pat- terns. They did very well with this work and the number of designs was surprising and some showed a lot of originality. Another phase of this work was the Still Life done in pencil outline. The students worked from some interesting pieces of pottery for this work. Later they took up cast work and after that came perspective and printing. sfo 0:0 eta School Gardens fConti'nued from page sixj and eighty cents. The total number of pupils that took the course last summer was seventy-eight. The last day of school in the course, there was an exhibition of the best vegeta- bles from different gardens. Through fhe exhibition, people in the vicinity began to realize how a course of this nature was needed. Mr.Yenne reports that about seven- ty five pupils have taken gardens this years. The plans for the course as a whole will be in many ways as it was last year. Although the planting has been delayed some on account of the rainy weather, onions, radishes, and lettuce are making their appearance in several gardens. The ground near the Woodruff Place fence which has not been assigned will be cultivated. O . .ESTHER AMICK.

Mr. Hanna's English II's made some fine "Mannion" books. The contents were very interesting, being a list of notes on "Marn'iion" written by the children. The more artistic students drew pictures in color in their books and almost all made some very pretty covers. Now Juniors, don't laugh, these stale freshies are all right. Miss Atwood's English III's, she says, have made the work very enjoy- able for her this term because of their excellent spirit. They have shown interest in their work. They certain- ly enjoy their Oral composition days. Students in 20 always know when these recitations are "on" though they have not previously heard the assign- ment of the lesson. Miss Davis' English IV Classes have done some fine, interesting Work this year. They have been trying to imagine themselves as characters in the books that they read. One day they wrote Compositions, in the first person imagining themselves as any character in "Silas Marnerf' Miss Shover's English V's conclude this list of fine workers. They have been studying rhyme and rhythm, metrical feet, and figures of speech. The girls refuse to talk about long feet, and the ones that have fear of getting a "D" always flush when this subject is being discussed. I can't decide whether they go to the Art Institute to see the figures of speech or whether they are some sort of geo- metrical figures. Hurrah for the English Depart- ment! We are sure such students will come back to school next fall with the spirit of Work and with their thinking caps on. School Year Last September when school took up again how glad everybody was to see everybody else. It took everyone about a week to find out if all of their friends had returned. If they hadn't returned the question of where they were must be decided.

On the latter topic, Miss Binninger's II's gave a deba.te. These pupils are becoming interested in some of the big prob- lems facing our country to-day. History I and IV has interested the pupils more this term than it did last. Special stress has been laid on the life, customs and art of the ancients. The outside reports on various characters such as Han- nibal, Caesar and Pericles added to the interest of the work. Last but not least in importance is Miss Binninger's History IV class. There is only one class of IV's and it is the oldest history class in the school. This is a lively body of stu- dents very much interested in their history and teacher. They have taken up the Modern History of the European Nations and have found it very interesting. An unusual fea- ture of the Work is turning the Fri- day class into a sort of Current Event Club with President Wilson II at its head and Miss Binninger as a pupil. On a whole the history this year has been a success and promises a great deal more for the future classes. How is a lunch paper like Bene- dict Arnold?

Mr. Jay has put tables on the east porch of the lunch room and a good many of the boys seem to like this place better than any other. They have a nice time, to all appearances as they sit there in the shade eating ice cream. Another place where the boys con- gregate during the lunch hour is un- der the large old maple tree fthe one Where the box is.J This bunch is very active, for they are always running, jumping, wrestling or sometimes kill- ing snakes. They Gnd great sport in stepping quickly behind some innocent looking fellow and suddenly, without the slightest provocation, knocking him over. Great sport! The smaller boys who stay there are Est fights there are always interested specta- tors, and foremost among those in- terested is Harry Brown. He may be seen almost any time during the noon hour teling some small freshie to "go to it" or something of the sort. The girls almost all have some nice grassy spot to which they go every day. Lois Stone and Bertha Ruby may be seen every day sitting on the west residence steps, both talking ex- citedly, probably about the paper. Fay Douglas, Juanita Kendrick, Genevieve Anthony and Martha Hufi' are four girls who are almost constantly to- gether. If you will look for them at the noon hour, you will find them about half way down the north walk. Several freshies occupy the west steps of the old office building daily. Macy McGowan is always here, and at any time that you happen to pass, you can hear her urging the fresh- man girls on to victory. She is, by the way, talking about basket-ball. As everyone knows, Newell Hall is the bane of every girl's existance and he eats his lunch upstairs in room B solely for the purpose of dropping chalk down upon the unsuspecting heads of the girls who pass under- neath the window, Newell is so small, but so full of mischief, that it seems strange that the girls have not formed a union of some kind, having as the height of their ambition the abolition of Newell Hall.

Everyone digs their head in their book to look at the last proposition. Finally the papers are all out and Miss Hagley says, "Books closed." There is a closing and push- ing aside of geomtrys and a general search for pens and ink wells. Fin- ally, the room becomes quiet as Miss Hagley is writing out this or that question and all over the room you can see one or the other various pupils staring blankly at his neighbor as though it was the fifteenth problem on page one hundred and eleven. The propositions are well under way when a late pupil to Mr. Mills' algebra class bangs the hall door be- hind him and saunters noisily across the room banging the second door be- hind him. The class then settles down after the disturbance. "X minus two equals what, Helen?" is heard from Mr. Anderson's algebra class in the next room.

Girls' Basketball Girls' basketball of this year, has proven a grand success. So far six games have been played, there being two more to follow. Under the train- ing of Miss Hagley and Miss Frick, the girls have derf-loried some fine team work. The standing of teams on May 27 is as follows: Lost Won Percent Crimson ........ 1 5 .830 Purple --- --- 3 3 .500 Green .......... 4 2 .333 Orange ........ 4 2 .333 From this standing, it is thought that the Crimsons will finish in the lead. The girls wish to extend their thanks to Miss Hagley and Miss Frick for their kindness to them during the season. They hope that these teach- ers Will coach them next year. Don't forget to look at the bulletin for the winners' pictures. Baseball Tech baseball, when compared with that of last year, has been very suc- cessful. Last year Tech did not secure a single victory, but this year four games were lost and four Won. A great deal of the credit may be given to Mr. Sanders who managed the team. The players played well in all games, and the pitching was a great im- provement over last year's twirling. Gallahue in particular pitched Well. Francis Wilson, captain of the team, also played a very good game at third. Butler. Harris, Kimmick, and Heit- kam played Well too. Here's hoping some of these players make the mono- gram team. Basket Ball 1 For the first time basket-ball at Tech', turned out very successfully from a basket-ball standpoint. Not only were the players and fans satis- hed, but the earnings of basket-ball left over thirty-five dollars in the athletic coffers. The reds won the pennant, largely through the work of their star,Butler. For a few games he could not play,and the Reds, as a result made a miserable showing. The race was tight, and the Reds were forced to go at a fast pace to keep down the Blacks and Greens. The Blues and Grays played well at times, but they often had slumps. The monogram games proved a suc- cess, and brought most of the money to the athletic fund. The Blacks Won this series from the Whites, taking two straight games. Fehr, Butler, and Nutt of the Blacks, and Ray of the Whites received M. T's. As a Whole the year proved to be successful for the players The faculty also developed a team of Which Tech is proud. Besides humbling the Reds, our Faculty team defeated the Faculty team from Man- ual. This game with Manual was played during the time the monogram games were staged. The fans also declared the year at basket-ball had proved a success. Every night there Were games many boys and girls stayed after school to Witness them. Almost all the school stayed to see the monogram games. The money received from the mono- gram games also gave Tech a start on a much needed athletic fund. So for the first year at basket-ball, Tech has made an excellent start. THE ARSENAL CANNON 11 S ii fffffffffffmiyyyyigk ,. i A Rainy Day Scramble When the matter had finally been straightened out, Mary solemnly de- clared, "Well, after this mixup, girls, my wits feel like scrambled eggs." You never saw three girls less alike in appearance, though they echoed Maryls words with feeling. Mary's hair is very brown, and lrer eyes brown, toog eyes that Wheedle their way out of any difiiculty. So naturally the other two depended on her, though she generally started the trouble. Funny and heedless, sober Susanne was more to be de- pended upon. Her hair she coaxed to stay gold, cultivated her eyelash- es, and worried days over a freckle. Perhaps that was the reason Su- sanne was never to be depended upon, because a pensive expression produces a dreamy mind. But Anne was the Hower of the flock. Such hair and such an imagination. Hair, as red as fire curled and shone on Anne's head, and vivid tales came continually from inside. The other two lost themselves completely while listening to her stories, and watched her in admiration. She was proud of her hair, and her way of illustra- ing' exciting parts. Pretty, winning, fascinating, these girls didn't have a level head among them. Last Week when the rain poured and sprinkled and drizzled, then poured again, Anne started a new story in the cloakroom, and put on her wraps at the same time, thus starting complications. Preoccupied, but still generous, Mary fished out what she thought was her umbrella from those piled in the corner and one just like the one she had left the day before for Susanne. Su- sanne, pensive over the trials of fConti'nued on page twelve.J His Title Perhaps izo other incident of Jeff Tracy's experience showed his tenacity and persistency more than did his quest for the title of "Tennis Champ." His first games had been discouraging but his persistency had shown itself He was competing in the semi-finals with, whom everybody proclaimed, the strongest competitor in the tourna- ment. Nor was this fact disproven when to his extreme surprise and dis- appointment he was badly beaten "6-love" in three sets. The outlook was indeed discouraging. Were it not for the ever appearing streak of per- sistency in Jeff, he would certainly have given up. His small but wise brother urged him not to be despondent. As they were passing through the back gate which led to the chicken yard, Joe spied a large overgrown "Rhode Island Red" rooster fighting with Jumbo, the little "game," After the fight was over, he compared Jeff's game with the cock fight. He said, "Now Jeff that rooster fight reminds me to the dot of your game of tennis. That there old Rhodey was a lot better fighter than our Jumbo 'cause I saw him put it all over Mack's prize fighter once, so also was that feller beatin' you. Although you lost your game, Jumbo Won his, he had his losses and your gains. He lost a lot of good feathers and so forth, but now here's what you gained. You don't believe you gained anything, but let me tell you something, flrst, you know your man better now and you'll soon catch on to his serve, and second, you'll learn to place your shots more carefully. Now I noticed little "gamey" there and how he Won his fight.

"Seizing the gold-hilted fairy sword"-here Anne suited the action to the word-"the Prince raced ahead, pursued by his foes, come on, girls!" With her umbrella in the sword po- sition, Anne started the inspiring race, which lasted till they were half way to Susanne's house. Will you believe it? They didn't notice their mistake till they reached Susanne's gate. "Why have you two umbrellas?" asked Susanne. Then they discovered the various exchanges. Mary found herself possessor of a green cotton umbrella besides her own, Susanne had a wrong oneg but, as always, Anne capped the climax. Hers was of dark polished wood, with a beau- tiful gold top, which had resembled a sword to Anne's fancy. Mary's cot- ton chance was amusing, Susanne serenely passed the evening with a freckle lotion, but Anne fretted over her mistake. The owner might ac- cept the explanation, or think Anne had feared to keep the umbrella be- cause of the initials on top. Their extraction proved no easy matter, as they soon found. Mary's extra belonged to Cassandra Jones, whose new hat became almost as a thing of nought in the rain. The damp morning helped its condition. The long plume hung limply and tickled her left ear and with the flowers tipped it rakishly perpendicu- lar to her shoulder. Susanne's at- tachment had brought the wrong one, but demanded her own. But Anne, quite justly, the others thought, had a far worse time. "You-you are one thief !" Katrin- ka stormed. Katrinka was fat, Dutch and unimaginative. "I tell you again a umbrella nefer looked like a sword. Anyone with half an eye, to him it is plain already. A relative of my mother's cousin to her did give it, and not for a sword. Liar, you see am too bright so soon. You bring it back. You think I believe you." Anne's gray eyes snapped, her an- ger mounted high.

Mr. Anderson comes fiying out of "20" motioning and telling the students to move on, and stop congregating in the halls. But all in vain are his ef- forts. No one seems to hear. During the day "Cannons" are everywhere. At the close of the afternoon classes students leave the building with their books piled disorderly in their arms, while in their hand, are the papers. "The Editorial Staff n-as succeeded this term," said the parent of one of Tech's most popular students, "in collecting and handling all the Work that is connected with the paper. The editor-in-chief with' the help of her assistants, does ample duty to all things that are placed in her care. The staff is composed of twenty-seven, hard working boys and girls, who are always alert and ready to work diligently at anything that will benefit the paper. The Work which the members of the staff ac- complish is the most important part. For the convenience of the students and the editorial staff, a contribution box placed in the hall receives all ar- ticles. The staff decides whether the article is to be discarded, and if they deem it necessary to leave it gut of the issue, they return that article to the author with a note thanking him for his efforts, and reasons for its non-acceptance. Every one on the staff canvassed the different rooms of Tech striving to raise the subscrip- tion list to three hundred or more. Many extras have been disposed of, the proceeds of which went to the fund for the enlargement of the last number. I think that with the help of the pupils, the work of the staff was successful, and every pupil en- joyed the paper." MARGUERITTE GILPIN School Year ffioutinued from page eight.J that no one was absent. Now, that it's nearing the close of the school term, how anxious each one is for school to close. Is it because they are tired of seeing each other or is it be- cause they want a vacation? Never- theless they'll probably be glad to see each other again next September. THE ARSENAL CANNON 13 Sewing The sewing classes of Tech: have been prospering during the last term. Miss Payne has the sewing I's. They have made a number of useful things. In the thread bags they made, ainum- ber of different stitches were intro- duced. The girls have learned to hem napkins, patch garments, and practice feath-er stitching. Also they have made sewing aprons and caps and now have finished their combina- tion suits. Sewing II classes have costume de- signing. This is necessary for a g1rl to know, for although she can sew well, she may not be able to design a dress suited to her individual fig- ure This kind of work is taught in costume designing. Every other week has been devoted to this de- signing and the rest of the time is spent in the sewing room. Here each girl makes a gingham dress which sh'e has designed. Sewing III has about the same out- line as sewing II but uses different materials. The girls have made Wool- en dresses and silk waists. They also h-ave learned a number of helpful stitches used in embroidry work. Some of them are French knots, long and short and the blind loop stitch, which is used for edgings. Sewing IV is last but best of all. After one has finished Sewing III, if she fails to take IV she misses a great deal. Sewing IV appeals to me because it is the grade where one learns to design her own hat. I think every girl is interested in this. First we learned to line a hat. Then we were taught to make rosettes, bows, bandeaus,buchrum frames,smal1 wire frames and different styles of crowns. We made a wire frame for a little hat, covered it with straw and then trimmed it. We then started on our own hats. These were of any style we desired, and made of any kind of straw or goods we wished. So we found Sewing IV very interesting. There are many different styles and colors. Hazel Barrows is making an automobile bonnet. Genevieve Wiese's hat is of a torpedo boat shape. Others have ones that are turned up on one side or else have a rolling rim, some are white, some blue and some black. All are very pretty. We found Sewing IV very enjoyable. His Title fCo1ztinued from page eleve'n.j he won it by fighting scientifically. He kept watching for the weak places of the big fellow, and when he found one he'd go after it. That's just the way now. You're going to win your next game- You've got to watch the weak places. After this speech Joe remained silent and congratulated himself for talking so long without a break. This philosophic young Joe succeed- ed in more than consoling his bro- ther who was greatly inspired with Joe's confidence and kept. this inci- dent in mind. Jeff entered the next game with a strong resolve to watch his opponent'sweak places. Thisgame started with much the same result as the preceding one. Jeff was certainly outclassed. Along about the middle of the second set, he discoveed some- thing. He had just received a swift serve, and sent it back in the usual manner-to his opponent's left on the back line. He watched it drop exactly at his antagonist's feet and also his eagle eye detected that the other fellow could not return it. Then he tried placing a ball occassionally at the fateful place. Every time he won his point. He wisely let his game go now that he had accomplished his one point. Even with a worse defeat than before his strong persistency kept him encouraged. This still showed in him When he entered his last set of the finals with two games to his credit and two against him. This contest would tell whether he was "Tennis Champ" or not. The first game he easily won because he always managed to Win his own serve. Then the other fellow fol- lowed suit by taking four out of five points during his serve- This score was kept even until the game which would "tell the tale" was reached. Jeff was a game to the good at that time. He remembered all the prev-- ious experiences he had had, and thought them over. He remembered how his rival was weak on "feet balls" and if he shot at the other's feet, he was sure of his point. Out there in the crowd, he saw little Joe, an ear to ear smile on, and seemed to hear him say, "Lively, old chap,you can do it." Then the great game was on. His rivalrs first receive was back to 'him in no time, and Jeff returned it with fContzlm1.ed on pwge fourteemj 14 THE ARSENAL CANNON Faculty Vacation fC0ntinued from page twoj son will attend the Terre Haute State Normal during the vacation months.

Upon being asked what his plans for 'the summer were Mr. Montani looked wise and said, "The trouble is I can't give out my plans, they are a hideous secret." Miss Shover is going to travel comfort- ably th'is summer by sitting on the porch and looking at her post cards,iix- ing them in her album and reading her diary from last summer.

After receiving these scholarships the holders may elect any subject they choose. Mr. St. John expects to register in Merton College in Oxford University.

Next he tried his prime serve. Then to his utter dis- gust, his opponent seemed to have no trouble at all in returning it. The other fellow just ate these servesg he must rely on something else. By good luck, Jeff made the score deuce. Now his title hung on one thing--that crack shot at his opponent's feet. If it worked, he was "Champ"g if not, he was sure to be defeated. After send- ing a "hummer" over the net, he ran up to receive the next ball. It came back, straight and swiftg but it found him prepared. Then with a quick glance to find where to place his shot, he slammed the ball straight at his on- ponent's feet. It went true. J eff Tracy won his title. CHARLES DAVIS. Campus at Noon fCont1lnued from page nine.1 nings, George Schultz, Chester Gray, Donald Davis and Robert Lowes. At this place excitement is always at the highest pitch, and all for this reason: Several boys get upon the landing of the printshop stairs, and when they think no one is looking, they jump off. Someone down be- low tries to catch them, and they fly around at top speed. They call this tag, but whatever it is, they enjoy themselves immensely. Otto Gardener, who takes care of the wheels, is very generous. The other day, at the noon hour, Mary Williams went around trying to bor- row a penny from some one, but her efforts were fruitless. You see she had come away from home rather hurriedly, and did not notice the fact that she had only nine pennies in- stead of ten. Well, she finally de- cided that she could get along with nine cents if it was absolutely nec- essary, so she started down to the lunch room. But when she arrived at the foot of the stairs, a brilliant idea suddenly popped into her head. She would borrow a penny from Otto. She went boldly up to him and told him of her predicament He at once produced the required penny and Mary went joyously on her way. There is one other lunching place on the ground which has not been mentioned, and that is under the cot- tonwood tree. The machine shop boys eat here, and as one is passing a jumble of "four cylinders," "two cycle engines." "wood turning lathes," and "motors," is heard all of which are bewildering to most of us. When the bell rings at 11:55, there is almost as much commotion caused by the pupils coming back into the building as there was when 'they came out. 9 0 Q 0.6 6,0 O00 Debate The history IV class gave a debate last Friday the fourth hour. Half of the class with Edward Owen as Cap- tain took the positive side and the other half with Lois Stone as Captain the negative side, it being resolved that The Canal Toll Bill should be re- pealedg the positive side winning. Miss Hagley, Charles Davis, and Leh- man Holliday were judges, and all history pupils having that hour va- 'cant came as visitors.

All the boys who have "made goodv and received recommendations will get plenty of work this summer. The other day, the class had a pleasent visit to the Wheeler and Schebler Carburetor Plant. The gentlemen in charge explained every detail of the C3I'bL11'StO1'7S workings. The most interesting part was the refrigerator room where a finished automobile engine is left all night in a temperature of about zero. After the motor is "frozen," the carburetor is tested. So the carburetors are tested for cold weather even in the summer. During the busy season five thousand carburetors are turned out in a month. The class felt the time spent here to be well worth while. o 4 0 0.4 no 0,0 This Term A pupil caught the mumps, Before this he had the slumps, And was sent home from school, Thinking he had been a fool For letting himself get behind, All the rest of his pupils kind.

FOREST MORGAN. 1- Wood Working In Mr. Spear's Woodworking class the boys are much farther along this year than last. They seem to be work- ing with more zeal. The boys doing the best work are: George Class, who is making a tableg Clarence Long, who is making a chair for the porch, and Robert Kline, who is making a table. These boys are nearly through with their projects and fto use slangj will have a litte time to "loaf" at the end of the term. Mr. Craig's Woodworking II Class is also working. Several of them have made more than one project. Fred Ammerman has made several powder boxes for his best girls and is now working on a laznp shade for a combination gas and electric lamp. He hasthe standard done and has taken it home. He is not the only boy who is working, because several whose names we could not get are working very hard. All the boys are doing their best. They are working the lathes to the full capacity of their speed. We hope that the next classes will be as industrious in both Mr. Spear's and Mr. Craig's classes. Mr. Collins says that Everett Hughes, Paul Ray, Winters Fehr, and Rollo Warren are doing the best and fastest work in the mill room while Henry Cochrane, Everett Hughes, and Rollo Warren are leaders in Architect- ural Drawing. In addition he says that his shop stars are Albert Dougherty, George Lawler, Fred Bakemeyer, Russel Durler, Neil Brigham, and' Elmer Lindstad. It is admitted all through the shops that the boys are doing the best work they have ever done. Anofther New Teacher There is to be another new teacher at Tech. Mr Edward C. Stair of Purdue is to take charge of the sum- mer gardens. He is from the agri- cultural department and is to have full charge of the gardens. Although all of us will not be here to welcome him to Tech we are glad he is coming and hope he will like our school. 16 THE ARSENAL CANNON To Miss Shover Heat v . t b- h f M' The hot sultry days have come again Heres thlee greg' lg C eers or iss But we must stick to the book and Shover The best little teacher We have, She's always ready to help some one, With her medicine, cotton and salve.

He thought at first that he could not keep the garden, but he soon became used to it and learned to tease the girls as much as they teased him. It was not only these girls and Carl that liked to tease, but Mr. Sanders liked it as much! as the pupils. Every chance that he found he played some joke on one of the pupils. So having these things to cheer us up when we grew tired, all of us enjoyed this term's work greatly. FAY DOUGLAS Tact "John," said Miss Shover in one of her English classes, "What is a simile?"

Mr. Stuart is still principal of Tech which now has four- teen buildings and over three thous- and students. Miss Allen is book- keeper for the Indianapolis Street Cleaning Department. Under her direction this department of the city government has become so well or- ganized that it is a pattern for all other cities in the United States. Miss Lees spends all of her time now running her new auto. No person has a better record for safe and care- ful driving. Mr. Moutani is now con- ductng the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. After a successful season in this city, he is to take his orchestra to Lugano to fill an unusually good contract. Mr. St. John who is still at Tech has an Orchestra of seventy- five. They practice four nights a week and play in the Auditorum each Friday. He has the best High School Orchestra in the States. Mr. Buerck- holtz is a German teacher in Monrova, Siberia. His pupils write glowing accounts of his work. Mr. Collins is buildinng locomotives and planning signals but instead of running lris en- fCovztinued on page twentyj Mathematics iContiozued from page th'ree.j etry. Arithmetic deals with definite or known numbers, wlrile algebra deals with general or unknown num- bers. The unknown numbers some- times are more than one, in a single problem. Gradually from the deal- ings with' letters in Algebra I and II, the course runs into Geometry. Geom- etry is given in order to develop clear and logical thinking, by showing the succession of events in their natural order. This is the thing the geometry classes have been taught in the past semester. "Grasp the principle of Geometry," is the slogan, even though you donlt remember the various proofs." If once the principle is learned, the propositions though per- haps forgotten during the summer, will come back to the mind in due course of time. With this in mind the Geometry I and II classes have been studying the book of Wentworth- Smith. The Geometry I's have cov- ered book one, while the 11's have covered books two three, four and five. Thus the course of Geometry is completed. The next step in the mathematics work goes back to Algebra. This is a very indefi- nite subject, and its results are seem- ingly few. Great patience and per- severance is required for this course. The teachers of some of these various classes are Mr. Sanders, Mr. Mills, Miss Hagely and Mr. Anderson. So, the mathemetics at Tech, with their assistance, is accomplished. 0 0 A 0.0 0.0 0.9 Technical at Crawfordsville Technical was not represented at Crawfordsville by any athletes but instead by a few rooters and a few musicians.

Darrel Montani, Albert Dougherty, Mr. Anderson and Mr. Wedeking were there represent- ing the Technical rooting force.

THE ARSENAL CANNCN 19 A red headed girl is Ester Wood, She wore a rusty colored hood. With rosy cheeks is Rachel Todd, Her best loved fish is the cod. A quick briglrt boy is Jamie Scott, A little argument makes him hot. A little boy, Wayne McMeans, Always studying, to me, it seems. A great big girl is Barbara Pglen., To me, it seems she's always feed1n'. Here's to good old Vernon Griffs, Who does his Latin all in jiffs. A quiet girl is Virginia Brackket, Because she never makes a racket. A knowing boy is Donald Durman, He knows the difference between lec- ture and sermon. A jolly kid the Bakemeyer Fred, When he falls down he hurts his head. A nice maid is Alice Plank, So she seemed sitting on Pogue's Oceans bank. A fine player is Victor Prange, He played the piano while he sang. Said Clarence Miller I'd "kill'er," With arsenic "I'd fill'er." A chubby girl is Ida Hert, In Latin she always is alert. Much powder on the face of Marjorie Killie, Goes a long way toward making her look silly. Fancy skirts has Lorraine Free, For they are draped as you may see. Will she be an old maid, Dorothy Carey, Or will she find a man and marry. We all wonder why Martha Huff, Is always hungry? Does she not eat enough? Aifancy boy the Pangborn Earl, His cuff buttons are always set with pearl. A funny girl Miss Erma Turk, She often in the corrider did lurk. It takes Mr. Samuel Newman, To keep everything a boomin'. A funny kid the Heathco, Frank, At being sober he is rank. At basket ball our George Mode, Much resembles a little toad. A math. star is Ezra Clark, He works all night in the dark. A smiling maid, Fernetta Mullen, Shes never known to be sullen. A giggly Miss, Elizabeth Scott, But for friends she has a lot. A base ball player, Lehman Holliday, "Didn't have time," you oft hear him say. An Irvington boy, is Paul Burns, A half quart measure holds all he learns. A base ball Slayer, Carl Harris, He does all t at he can for us. The fat lazy boy, Max McVey, Playing base ball is the way he spends the day. A German star is Marjorie Nutt, In German she never hits a rut. The Ostermeir girls, Frieda and Gertrude, They are never in a sulky mood. The biggest girl in Tech, Dora Worley Has never known to be surly. The Writer of this, Newell Hall, Does hereby implore you, him not to maul. See the Birdie lConti1zued from page sixteenj he had exposed the rst film, the editor-in-chief announced that she had had her mouth wide open when the film was snapped.

I forgot a package that is up stairs! I shall hurry and perhaps I can catch up Witha you." She ran up the steps but it took some time to get the bun- dle. When she came back she thought she would not get down quickly enough so she decided to slide down the banister as she had done many other times. Well, she started all right but she was talking to another girl. In her chat with the other girl she forgot what she was doing and as she reached the bottom, she lost her balance and down she Went on the hard steps. Miss McCullough ran to her and helped her up and now the Sophomore is suffering from a sprained Wrist. I guess she will use the steps after this. LUCILE CLEMENS.
