Governor hlor- ton, on his own responsibility, established the Indiana Arsenal. He was most for- tunate in being able to place in charge Colonel Sturm, a reliable and capable man, who had studied the art of making ammunition, in Germany. Colonel Sturm furnished, to the National Government, samples of his manufacture which were highly approved. The work was begun on a small scale in the north half of the present State House grounds. The State furnished the material, and instructed Colonel Sturm and a detail of the Elev- enth Indiana Regiment to begin work. The bullets were moulded in a shop on the south side of Vliashington Street opposite the State Irlouse. By IS63 the work increased to such proportions that it was considered dangerous. so was moved to Colonel Sturmls ground, into shops facing Vermont Street, south of the Sturm residence, now on Sturm Avenue. The temporary store house or arsenal stood on the south side of Klich- igan Street facing the present Arsenal Building. As the war progressed, it demanded an increase in the working force of both men and women. Before the war ended, the Arsenal worked night and day, employing from live to seven hundred persons and producing three hundred thousand rounds of ammunition every twenty-four hours. Xlr. sl. xl. 13. Hatfield who was employed by the Government from Alarch 1862 to the closing of the Arsenal, tells of one shipment of 6,000,000 rounds of ammu- nition in cases of a thousand each which were shipped from the store house after .... .TECH..... F eight o'clock one night. This extensive manufacture made it possible for Indiana to supply not only its own regiments but also to assist the National Government in preventing serious disasters. Shortly after the establishment of the Indiana Arsenal, the Vlar Deaprtrnent learned that it could buy better ammuni- tion at a more reasonable price than it could from any private corporation. Vllhereupon the National Government and the State entered into an agreement by which the former agreed to pay for all ammunition issued, past and future, at mutually satisfactory prices. At this time the Klagazine on the south side of Xlichigan Street passed into the hands of the United States. Ammunition manu- factured in the shops belonged to the State till delivered to the Rlagazine. At the settlement between state and nation the former realized a clear proht of 2577,-157.32 from its Arsenal. For some time negotiations had been afoot to shift the entire responsibility of manufacture to the Federal Authority. After the fall of Vicksburg and Chattanooga, the Wlest ceased to be a necessary center for manu- facture of ammunition. There was no longer a need for the Indiana Arsenal. It was therefore closed April 1S, 1S6Jf. TI'IIi UNITED STATIQS ARSICNAL Long before the closure of the Indiana Arsenal, provisions had been made for a permanent National Arsenal at Indiana- polis. An act was passed and approved July 11, 1862 which provided for the erection of Government buildings for the deposit and repair of arms and muni- tions of war. For this purpose, the act authorized an appropriation of one hun- dred thousand dollars. A beautiful tract THE ARSENAL CANNON 3 of wooded land one and a half miles east of the city, containing 75.14 acres was purchased for 835,500 The site chosen by General Buckingham belonged to Calvin Fletcher, Jr., Allen R. Benton and Herman Sturm. Deeds were secured from them on the following dates: Decem- ber 15th and 22nd, 1862 and November 2nd, 1863. The last deed secured Arsen- al Avenue from Nlichigan Street to Ver- mont. The Government improved the entire length to lVashington Street. East Tenth at this time was a poor, country road. The State ceded jurisdiction to the United States on February 21, 1863. The Government began work in August of the same year, under the command of Captain T. Treadwell. The principal buildings were erected under the direction of hflajor James hi. VVhittemore who succeded Captain Treadwell, February, 186-1. The Store House or Arsenal fthe Nfain Buildingj, bearing the date of 1865 on its front arch was followed by the East Residence, Office, Artillery Building CShopsj, and Powder hflagazine. Later the Barn, lVest Residence, Guard House lbuilding at the gatel, the gateway, and VVork Shop CPower House and Electrical Buildingj were built from 1869 to 1893. Thus we learn that the Government manufactured no ammunition on our Arsenal Grounds during the Civil War. All the buildings were built with greatest care and skill from choicest pressed brick and cut Vernon limestone. The excel- lent condition of the buildings after with- standing all these years of weathering verifies the quality of government work- manship. The grounds, walks, and carriage ways show the work of expert landscape gar- dening. Forest trees were allowed to stand, and their growth encouraged. Nlajor A. L. Varney superintended the erection of the water tower and the iron fence. hlajor Comley added the rose beds, grape arbors, and lilacs. During the years 189-1 and 1895, there was a general movement throughout the country toward the abandonment of arsenals. The Indianapolis Arsenal was on the decline. At the outbreak of the Spanish American VVar in 1898 this Arsenal was raised from a third to a first class when haversacks and knapsacks were made in the Shops and Artillery Building. As the war soon ended, this Arsenal was no longer needed. lylajor Charles Shaler who was Commandant at this time, became the last of thirteen commanding officers stationed here. ln 191-1, he came to Technical High School and talked to the members of the Can- non's Staff. iVith the exception of the period during the Spanish American VVar, this Arsenal stored only heavy and lighter arms and some ammunition. At one time there were 100,000 rifles stored in the second and third floors of the Arsenal Chflainl Build- ing. The usual assignment of soldiers consisted of fifty. The property was authorized to be sold under an act of Congress approved June 30, 1902. The final abandonment of the Arsenal was marked by the firing of the last sunrise gun, April 13, 1903. EDWARD OWEN DREAM OF THE TRADE SCHOOL The question of a trade school in lndia- napolis was agitated throughout the year 1902, with the result that on hflarch 27, 1903, the Arsenal Grounds were pur- chased from the government for the pur- pose of establishing such a trade school. The money necessary for this was secured by popular subscription, and placed in the hands of a committee of Indianapolis citizens who bought the land from the United States Government for ,815-l,000. A year and a month later, on April 8, 1904, the school was incorporated under a board of eight trustees and Sol.C. Dickey was made president of the insti- tute. The school was opened in Septem- ber of the same year. In order to enter the school as a stu- dent, one had to pass a moral, scholastic, and physical examination, and no stndent who was under sixteen years of age was eligible. The tuition for original courses was one huundred dollars a year, or sixty dollars a semester. Wihen the school started out in the fall of 190-1, the following courses were offered, pharmacy, decorative painting, lithography, and electric wiring. Other courses were added from time to time until in 1908, the school boasted of seven 4 THE ARSE N AL CANNON more departments, which were molding, tile-setting, printing, carpentry, machin- ery, applied science, and masonry. Eighty students were enrolled at the school during the first semester. The school continued to grow until the enroll- ment reached five hundred, in 1908. The pharmacy course was directed by J. H. Gertler, assisted by live teachers. This school occupied all three floors of the barracks, and was well equipped. The school of decorative painting was located in the Fresh Air School. House painting, interior decorating, sign paint- ing, and show-card lettering were taught. Assisted by two teachers, G. K. Hen- derson directed the lithography school, which was located on the entire second floor of the main building, or what was then called the Graphic Arts building. The course in electric wiring was taught in the power house, under the direction of R. NI. lNfIurray and two instructors. The course in moulding was directed by E. A. Johnson with the aid of one teacher. This school was located in the west wing of the shops. The students, while learn- ing, also did commercial work, and each student earned four dollars and twenty cents a week besides a percentage of the total profits. The school of tile setting was conducted in the "barn" under the instruction of J. G. Drummond and an assistant instruc- tor. Several tilers' associations recog- nized the value of this school, and authorized the assignment of a number of scholarships. The school of printing was located in the Graphic Arts building. It was first directed by I". Chandler, and later by F. O. Climer, who were assisted by five teachers. The school possessed equip- ment valued at sixty thousand dollars. The school of carpentry was located on the second fioor of the shops and taught under the direction of A. Robin- son. The machinery course was also taught on the second floor of the shops. The students in this course, like those in the foundry school, were given the oppor- tunity of earning extra money from com- mercial work. The course in applied science was a -- l course in civil, mechanical, and electric'a engineering. The students were taught mathematics, drawing, physics, chemis- try, applied mechanics, and surveying. The school of masonry was located on the lower floor of the shops. The National Brick-makers Association was interested in this school, and offered a large number of scholarships. Because of financial failure the school was gradually discontinued from 1909 to 1912. The school of applied science was removed to VVinona Lake, and the school of pharmacy, located in buildings in the business district of Indianapolis, and school oflithography, transferred to Cin- cinnati. The school of printing, under the direction of lXfIr. Tol iXIcGrew, has been in continuous successful operation and is, perhaps, the largest Trade School of Printing in the United States. The school of machinery is also still main- tained in the shops, as our vocational courses in lXfIachine Shop Practice. Thus The VVinona Technical Institute established the types of schools for prac- tical education now carried on in the vocational courses in Technical High School. l- M. D.

They entered the building by the old stairs in the tower. h'Ir. Spear stood at the foot of th estairs to direct the pupils so they would not enter the print shop. At the top of the stairs stood lXf1iss NIcCullough, kindly coaxing them up. At the door stood Kliss Binninger and lXfIr. Hanna. The would-be students were not from under the watchful eyes of these two before Xfr. Anderson showed them the rooms. Also there was Miss Shover, everywhere at once, as usual. Bliss Jasper was unable to be there at Tech's first day. Nfr. Yenne was working at the program for these few pupils. The pupils, after being deposited with care in rooms B and C, were given Nativety Blanks. lVIr. Stuart soon called a meeting of everyone in room 20, then called in those of room A. How dis- appointed the students were when they entered this room! They had no visions of a Hourishing high school. The walls and fioors were dirty, only a few of the seats were fastened down, no telephone was in the little booth in the back of the room, many boards lay around, and everything was in disorder. But this was not to remain long, as carpenters were busy everwhere, As soon as pos- sible, lVIr. Stuart addressed these Hshy studentsf, After a short talk, he intro- duced the teachers, during which time each freshie wondered who taught what, and Whether or not he would have this teacher or that. After this talk, session rooms were assignedg those without Eng- lish credits remained in A, while the others were divided between the other two rooms, those whose names began with letters from Aehfl in B, and the rest in C. To complete this day, so important in Tech's history, it was an- nounced With great solemnity, dignity, and sincere regret by lWr. Stuart, that there would be no school until the fol- lowing Nlonday, as repairs were so badly needed. So the joyous students were dismissed for this short vacation. INIARY E. MCPHEETERS. LATIN CLUB The first Latin club organized with Edward Owen, praepesg Francis Wilson, propraepesg Sam Newman, quaestor, Carl Harris, proquaestorg Fay Douglas, scriba, Lois E. Stone, pro-scriba. Wie held our first meeting hflarch 17, 1913 in room 2-1. At that time lXf1iss Abel had an eighth hour Virgil class at Nfanual and that afternoon the St. Pat- rickis Day parade held up the street cars and incidentally IX'Iiss Abel. At the second meeting we decided upon purple and gold for colors and "Esse quam videri" CTO be rather than to seeml as our motto. The several meetings held that year were spent learning "Gaud- eamus Igiture," 'fhifilites Christiane," and the Tech yell. The life of the club terminated in a picnic where we had purple and gold tablecloths and even the eggs colored purple and yellow. I wonder whether the faculty remembers the Aaron VVard roses presented them, or how their ages were determined by grass blades tied together. gl. S1-IEA. THE NATURE STUDY CLUB ' In the spring of 1913 the students organized a club to study the birds, fiowers, and trees on our campus, and to take hikes in the country. hfiss Hag- ley, lyfiss lXfIcLaughlin, and Miss h'IcCul- lough deserted faculty duties to tak: active part. From long articles writte-i by Clea Rippey and Robert Shewalter, we learned of the many good times stored in the memories of the members. On some occassions, the students met under the tower archway before the first period and tramped the campus jungles in search of new specimens. On one of the hikes they visited Fort Benjamin Harrison. On this trip Lehman Holliday insisted upon riding alone on the car steps, and worry- ing Miss Hagley. VVhen time came to return Gladys Hartman and Julia Shea started across country to a farm house to make inquiries. The party got lost only to be frightened by the horses and THE ARSENAL CANNON 7 cows. Later the tired crowd found its way to the Pendleton pike and home. This term, lX1iss Sylvia Leonard's group of students who have been studying birds on our campus has continued the work of the Nature Study Club. THE CHORUS How well do 1 remember the first chorus of Technical High School. The entire class occupied the first five rows in room 20, and was under the direction of hfr. hfontana. The pianist was Dor- othy New who played the accompani- ments and also played popular music while the constituents of the class rested their melodious voices. The chorus is now composed of 300 regular pupils, 119 boys, Latin 60, German 60, and for the past two years has been under the leader- ship of bliss Kaltz. 'TEC1-1'S ORCHESTRA AND BAND During the first term Tech tried to organize a band under hfr. h1ontani's direction. The "Hear Yew mentions the names of eighteen members. The prac- tice, however, was never sufficiently good to warrant public playing. A second and somewhat similar at- tempt marks the effort during the second term. 1n the fall of 191-1, hliss Elizabeth Kaltz, proving the adage that third time was charm, organized our present orches- tra of twenty and our band of twenty- four. These and the choruses have al- ways most willingly assisted in Tech's programs. 4 THE DEBATING LEAGUE The Debating League of Technical High School, organized in November, 1915, with hfr. Claude H. Anderson as censor elected the following officers at the second meeting: president, James Scott, vice-president, Lehman Holliday, and secretary-treasurer, Lois E. Stone. Wiith the aid of 1Vlr. Anderson the mem- bers prepared several good programs con- sisting of debates on important current questions and of speeches, memorized or extemporaneous. The meetings of the club were discontinued at the beginning of the Spring term, 1916. THE POULTRY CLUB The Poultry Club was organized the Spring of 1915 by Kfr. Stair. A notice was posted on the bulletin board to the effect that all wishing to join would meet in the House. The club was organized in order that we might learn all about poultry. At one meeting we had at program on the care and feeding of chicks up until they were twelve weeks old. After the meeting we went upstairs to where we had an incubator, and watched the chicks hatch. The only trouble was that the girls wished to handle the little fiuffy balls. All who belonged to the club were enthusiastic and deeply inter- ested. ly THE VVIRELESS CLUB The Tech Wireless Club was started the third year of Tech. Yery interesting talks were given by hlr. Ackley, hlr. Harris, and hlr. Yenneg and the con- struction ofthe receiving instruments was started. This year the set was finished and an aerial was stretched between the water tower and the barracks, the length and the height makes it one of the largest aerials in the state. 1t is planned to have a first class receiving station some- where in the Physics Laboratory next winter. Not much work can be done in the summer on account of static electricity in the air. ROBERT VEHLING. ELECTRICAL GRADUATES Graduating exercises for the vocational electrical students who have completed the two year course will be held in room B-5 Tuesday afternoon, June 6, at which time certificates will be presented to eleven boys who are the first to finish the course. At a recent meeting of the class a standard design was chosen for a pin, which shall be used by all graduating classes of the School of Electrical Con- struction. The oflicers of the class are: President, Ralph Reidy, Vice-President, Eugene Saltmarshg Secretary, Oscar YanCleaveg Treasurer, Jack Thurston. The other members of the class are Fred Finehout, VVilliam Dickert, Ray- mond Ping, Clarence Brown, Harold Bar- ton, Lyman Baker, and Fred Griggs. 8 THE ARSENAL CANNON THE GERMAN CLUB'S FIRST CHRISTMAS PARTY On the Friday before Christmas, 1912, the thirty members of the German Club and their friends gathered in the gym for their first party. The faculty, too, shared in the fun. After a grand march the real good times began. From a large, bril- liantly lighted Christmas tree the teachers received their Christmas gifts, a tin horn, a kit of toy tools, a box of candy, a chorus-girl doll, a broom, a small toy cupboard, a pair of moccasins, a tin wagon, and a red leather purse. As much as he desired to be present oftener, h'Ir. Stuart, our principal, never succeeded ffor at that time he was with- out his own autol. Therefore, he was the proud recipient of a well known make of auto ften-cent store brandj guaranteed to run two feet without winding. He appreciated the spirit in which it was given despite the faults of the machine. Games, in which everyone joined, then followed, along with another decided fea- ture of the afternoon-refreshments. Plenty of ice cream and cake decorated with holly proved to be a graciously accepted part of the program. This first Christmas party of the German Club stands out clearly as one of the many to-be-remembered good times of the first semester. BERTHA GELLIAN. EXPLANATORY Not lack of enthusiasm but time has prevented club meetings this year. From September through November Technical was in continuous session from 7:30 to 5:00. Since December our hours have been 8:00 to 4:00. Students have been on half day programs because they could not all be accomodated during regular hours. Pupils having early programs could not wait till the close of school for other club members who had after- noon schedules. For the same reason we have had no PQFCIIL-TC3Cl1CfI1Xf1CCI1I1gS this year. These are beginnings which, we hope, will soon resume their activities. THE GROWTH OF TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL In the Spring of 1912, when study slips began coming to Shortridge and hfanual Training High Schools, their numbers showed that their owners could not be accomodated in the city high schools. lvlr. Stuart undertook to induce enough prospective Freshmen who lived within walking distance of the Arsenal Grounds to enroll in 'Lan overflow division" of Manual. Of these Pioneers and their first termls experiences you have already read. In the meantime, the Board of School Commissioners leased privileges for a part of the Kfain Building and Shops from hflr. Charles A. Bookwalter, Receiver of The lvinona Technical Insti- tute. Evidently no one knew the un- usual strength and the power of rapid growth of the 'cTech Acorn. l' The lease was drawn up so that it could be ter- minated by either party on five days notice. So, legally, the school has lived "from week to weekl' and thrived on such meagre provisions. llfhen school opened, September eleventh, it hoped that The Supreme Court would decide the case 80186, filed in Room 3, and that by November of 1912 it might begin to make, permanent plans. Four school years have almost passed. Short leases and privilege of occupying these seventy- six acres, have, in spite of long waiting, made our hopes grow faster and stronger than our school. lXIay 22, 1916 has brought a favorable decision and will en' able the Board of School Commissioners to carry out their plans concerning Tech- nical High School. One hundred and eighty-two pupils were enrolled with Techis first term, September 1912 to January 1913. The first program, reproduced on page five, offered eleven subjects and required all the time of eight, and part of the time of four teachers. Sometimes hfr. Stuart came out to see us as often as twice a Week, but he was always ready to answer Tech's phone calls. This was the begin- ning.

The girls' cloak room became the oflice after the new stair- ways were built to the north, and the stairs in the tower went on the pension list and were assigned to "fire-escape dutyf, The east residence then housed the Latin and Typewriting, Botany, and Agriculture. The shops filled the second Hoors of their respective buildings, and are now also occupying the first floors. The one building that now looks most like a "real-for-sure school house" is the old Government Barn. As the Blain Building is over a square from the Bar- racks we need seven minutes between classes. Sprinting, though not recorded on our study slips, is a regular part of our daily program. Now Technical High School occupies, in six different buildings, forty-four rooms, none of which was origi- nally intended for school purposes. Probably no high school in the United States has, during its first four years, had so many strange pioneering exper- iences as have fallen ours. These have not been altogether adverse. In fact, even the legal suspense may prove our greatest blessing in disguise. These facts sum up the whole situation: we are ideally located: we are happy, enthusi- asticg and above all, like our Tech Acorn, we are still growing.

Klost of these departments are aided financially by the state as vocational schools that have qualified and fulfilled the requirements of the state law. It is not the purpose of these schools to make journeymen of their students but rather, to permit them, if possible, togfind that line of trade work in which they are most interested and to teach them the funda- mentals of that trade. 'With these aims in view, six vocational school are now offering work to boys. SCHOOL Ol' AGRICULTURE The splendid natural advantages for work in agriculture, offered by our school grounds, has led to the organization of a school of Vocational Agriculture. The aim of the course is first, to give boys interested in agriculture a general survey of agricultural pursuits, and second, to give them a chance during the last two or three years of the course, to specialize along their chosen line. The first class was organized in February, 1915. The boys of this class started a school market which proved to be very successful and was an effective means of disposing of their products. The largest amount made by any one boy was 319600. Experience shows that as soon as a boy becomes interested in this line of work he oftens provides himself with a small farm and goes to work on it. Four boys of last year's class are now working on farms. SCHOOL OF BUILDING TRADES The School of Building Trades was organized in order to offer to those boys who contemplate choosing one of the building trades as a vocation, some defi- nite, practical, and scientific training along the line they wish to follow. It is the plan of the course to give two years of general training dealing with as many of the trades as possible, and to give two years of specific training along the trade chosen. In the first two years the boys will receive a large amount of practical exper- ience in carpentry, cement, and concrete A L CANNON work, painting decorating, and sheet- metal work. Small projects will be given in electric wiring, plumbing, heating, masonry and stone cutting. In correla- tion to the Work of the shop, English, History, Civics, lNIathematics, Architec- tural Drawing, and Interior Decorating will be given. A boy having completed this course will be able to choose more wisely a trade he wishes to follow. The School of Building Trades was organized last October and since that time almost all of the shop work has been devoted to carpentry. Twenty-nine pro- jects have been completed, some of which areg a large partition across the shop building, a storm entrance to the auto- construction shop and a number of benches, boxes, stools, and other school equipment. SCHOOL FOR ELECTRICAL XVORKERS Vocational Electricity had its begin- ning in a course called Shop Science, started primarily at the beginning of this school to utilize the Electrical Building as left by the Winona Trade Schools. The demand for Shop Science necessi- tated the beginning of a broader and more comprehensive course in electricity, re- sulting two years ago in our present School for Electrical VVorkers. The School for Electrical VVorkers is at this time one of the state-aided voca- tional schools, having enrolled seventy boys who are graded into four groups. The course of study is separated into four distinct lines of work all of which bear rather directly toward training along electrical lines. The course is built some- what upon Electrical Theory as a basis, due to its fundamental importance, and the Work of the shop, drawing room, mathematics and English, bears its proper relation to training in the Electrical Trades. Two years are required to com- plete the course. Eleven boys will com- plete the course this term. To the growth of Tech, the work of the boys of the Electrical Shop has been of much importance. Wlhenever more light has been needed in a dark room, or a newibell was to be installed, it has been the business of these boys to look after it. The most notable examples of this THE ARSENAL CANNON 13 work has been the overhauling of the lights and motors in the Print Shop, the wiring of the Automobile and Carpentry Shops for lights and the installation of a complicated system of class bells. SCHOOL OF AUTOMOBILE CONSTRUCTION The course in Automobile Constructio was started in September, 1915, with little equipment and a very few boys. The equipment of tools and supplies, consisting mostly of small hand tools, was easily obtainedg but the machines were at first very difficult to obtain owing to the fact that practically no one knew of the work and the purpose of the school. The first machine brought to the shop was a one cylinder Brush roadster. After its case was diagnosed and treated, it was able to run away on its own power and, so far as is known, is still running. From that small beginning the shop gradually gained the necessary publicity and ma- chines began coming in more frequently until at the present time the shop is always crowded with from six to twelve machines on the waiting list. These machines are brought into the shop with all sorts of troubles. The boys are given the task of putting the autos back into good running condition. Thus the work is made thoroughly practical. It is the aim of this work to give the students a general insight into the mod- ern automobile, so they can detect and repair ordinary troubles, and so that they may understand the principles of the care and the maintenance of any type of machine. THE VOCATIONAL MACHINE SHOP The Vocational Machine Shop, during the first four years of its existence, by its rapid growth in size and standards has proven of great value to the city. The excellent shop equipment was provided largely through the generosity of the Metal Trades Association. This has been extended until the capacity of the shop has been reached. A practical drafting room, which occupies all of the available space, has been added, with adequate equipment. The course of study now includes, beside machine shop practice and practi- cal drafting, academic work in English and Civics, daily lectures on shop prac- tice and mathematics. The training re- ceived by the boy is much broader than that he would get as an apprentice in a shop. The growth of the shop has been steady and permanent under the present arrangement, until now more room is demanded to care for those desiring the course. The quality of the work is as high as it can at present be maintained. The course is now open to boys gradu- ating from the grades. It affords them an opportunity, not only for advance- ment in machine shop practice but also in allied academic subjects. THE SCHOOL OF PRINTING Technical High School is fortunate in having on its grounds the United Typoth- etae and Franklin Clubs of America School of Printing. For years this school has enjoyed an international reputation as being one of the foremost schools of printing in the country. Today in its equipment and instruction it is second to none. In October, l915 arrangements be- ween the Indianapolis School Board and the U. T. and F. C. of A. were completed whereby a limited number of boys in our high school were offered, without cost, a thorough and practical course in print- ing. The value of such an opportunity may be realized when it is known that students come here from all parts of the country and pay as high as three hundred dollars for an eighty weeks course. In very close correlation with the shop work, Technical High School offers to the boys, work in Applied Art, English, and lXfIathematics. The courses of Applied English and Applied hfathematics bear a very close relation to the work of the student in the print shop. He is taught the prac- tical features, as employed by the printer, of punctuation, paragraphing, proofread- ing, the point system of measuring type, and calculation of the composition of the type and paper stock. He is later taught Continued on pape I6 I4 THE ARSENAL CANNON THF STA Fl" SHOP NOTES Some of the projects in the Wood- working classes have been finished while others are rapidly nearing completion. Robert Becherer was the first to finish his project. It is a handsome electric lamp. Darrest Carr is finishing his hand- some hall-tree which is made of mahogony inlaid with maple. This project is espe- cially interesting because it is the first inlay work attempted in our shops. john Reinhardt has his fumed oak table fin- ished. It was fumed here in the shops which parks another new departure. Xflr. Johnston made a statement to the effect that all boys in Pattern-Nlaking 11 class caught whistling would have their grades lowered one markg consequently they are almost afraid to breathe. 1XfIr. Wlills seems to be running a race on his own work against that of the NVoodworking I boys. He has built a beautiful buffet in about 6 weeks and has worked only during his spare time. It is 59 inches long and S6 inches high and is made of quartered oak. Its handsome beveled mirror adds much to its beauty. The work in Pattern-hflaking I has been above average this term. Boys who are leading in this are George Yoght, Harry Swanson, 1NIartin Dickie, Albert lV1cIlvaine, John Daugherty, Herbert Limpus. NOBLE C, BUTLER. A REVIEW OF OUR SCHOOL PAPER Viihen Technical students came here in September 1912, they had no school pa- per, but a few of them subscribed for the "Booster," X1anual's school paper. On October 29, the f'Booster" printed more than a column of Tech news. On Decem- ber 9, Iidward Owen, dressed as an old "Town Crier," read in room 20 to the entire school our first school paper, the "Hear Yef, The staff was composed of four manuscript editors, and twenty re- porters. This first volume comprised the issues of the weekly, read during the first school term, November 1912 to Feb- ruary 1913. Volume II, containing four- teen numbers, collected during the school term, was also read and edited each week by the different English classes. There was but one copy of each volume. Car- toons for each number were pinned on the front board for inspection, after each number was read. The June class of 1915 bound these two volumes. The following term, Tech was too large to put all its pupils in one room to hear the reading of one paper. As a result we had no publication the third term. On February 20, 1914, Tech had her first printed paper. There was no name for the publication so when it appeared it had a big row of question marks for THE ARSENAL CANNON 15 he Arsenal Cannon Published by the pupils of Technical High School and print- ed by the U.

AIMS AND POSSIBILITIES OF TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL Everybody, every institution, is sup- posed to have straying around among its possessions three tenses, a past, a present, and a future. But the Technical High School has been getting along very com- fortably for four years with only one of these. Starting out new we, of course, possessed no Past. Being daily, hourly, reminded that the Supreme Court has not decided the ownership of the ground on which we walk, we naturally can boast no Future. lt is interesting to see just what four years of living in the Present will do for a school. Ir has, of course, made gypsics of us. People possessed of only one tense can have no permanent building, so, we have lodged where soldiers used to camp, or where they stored their guns. Itfs all one to us. Our gymnasium has been for the most part open plots under the sky. Our auditorium has been on nearly all festive occasions under the shadow of giant trees. Our work has included the spraying and pruning of a little orchard, the plotting and making of gardens, and the study of wild flowers growing right at our door. The street cars do not rumble very close, so it comes about that our pupils walk more than is usual among city children. We make no apology for any of this. One cannot feel at all apolo- getic in the presence of great trees, of bits of thicketg of the sky seen free from any net work of wires, of the creek in no way artificializedg of out-door air fresh and abundantg and of birds that just now are holding their session of revelry. It isn't so bad to have no Future as long as the Present lasts. As for having no Past to dictate to us, we have naturally tried to look square in the face of the needs of every day. If boys were out of school anxious for work, we have, in six vocational schools, offered all day in shop and in closely related studies preparing them for special lines of employment. If our girls wished dress- making or salesmanship, they have been permitted to enter strictly trade classes. If either boys or girls wished preparation for college, enthusiastic teachers have been ready to help. There has always been quiet for study: and an aloofness from outside interests. It seems we are acquiring friends will- ing to recognize us even in our gypsy garb. The State Board has given us a Commission, and the North Central Asso- ciation of Colleges and Secondary Schools has accepted us into their select company, this is the real 'cFour Hundredi' in high 16 THE ARSENAL CANNON school society. The State Department seems very willing to count our six voca- tional schools and some of our other classes as part of their own assets, bearing two-thirds of the burden of salaryexpense. But, there is another thing which warms our hearts much more than any outside recognition. Our children love their home and stay in it as long as they can. Four years ago we started with 182 pupils. This June 122 will have graduated. 1sn't that enough to make every teacher here lift his head a bit? Do you know, all together it would seem we are getting a start for a rather respectable Past. Our total enrollment this year is 1326. Five hundred and eleven grade pupils have chosen to join us next fall. So, maybe some time we may have a Future, too. At any rate, we still own a contented Present. Nfay 20, 1916. NI. H. Stuart, Principal. P. S. Since the above was written, the Supreme Court has presented the Tech- nical High School with a Future. HISTORY OF OUR PAPER Continued from page I4 a heading. Each issue found a decrease in the size and number of question marks until the third number. Of the hundred or more suggestions, Ruth Wiol- fred's came the nearest to our name, advising "The Cannonf' 1X1r. Stuart suggested that we try "The Arsenal Can- nonf' After running this heading with question marks and waiting for further suggestions, the staff announced the pre- sent name of the paper. The staff of thirty-two elected Lois Stone as Editor- in-Chief and lyliss Shover as Advisor. Eight numbers, with a twenty page maga- zine number containing only zinc etchings for illustrations, comprised this volume. The next term, volume four appeared, with Bertha Gelman as Editor-in-Chief, assisted by a staff of thirty-eight. The Christmas issue of twenty pages became the magazine number. Volume five found VVinters Fehr as editor, with a staff of thirty-eight mem- bers. The twenty-four page issue, with a cream and green cover, contained the half-tones of Tech's first seniors and of their play. Volume six again found Lois E. Stone as its second hour editor and Catherine Carr as a seventh hour editor with a combined staff of thirty. This volume had only four numbers due to the fact that the January Seniors required the Advisor's time for the Senior Play and that the print shopfs new machinery was not yet installed. The magazine cover, designed by Harold Stedfeld, contained twenty-four pages, set entirely by hand in the Vocational Printing class. This number featured Tech's second graduat- ing class. The June 1915 and January 1916 classes have bound all volumes of the Arsenal Cannon to January of this year. This volume, number VII, finds Dallas Crooke the Editor-in-Chief, assisted by a staff of forty-three pupils, and by an additional advisor, Mr. Lett, who is tak- ing charge of the business of "The Arsenal Cannon. H This staff sends greet- ing to its many loyal supporters and congratulates them, and the Print Shop for maintaining, without advertisement the paper of Technical High School. Continued from page 13 to estimate completed jobs and finally bookkeeping and other commercial fea- tures of a printing office. The course in Applied Art strives to instill into the student an appreciation of good design in printing. Lettering, composition and color harmony are sup- plemented by lectures in the history of lettering and general art work. THE SUPREME COURT DECISION The decision handed down by the Supreme Court gives the city of Indiana- polis one of the greatest opportunities ever put before any school board in any city. Our city now has the chance to make the present grounds and buildings of Tech one of the greatest Technical high schools. Here's to the Future of Tech' THE ARSENAL CANNON 17 RICHISARSING FUR THE S1-IAKlf.SP11AREI.'XN CEl,lilSRA'l'1ON THANKS The June Seniors wish to extend their thanks for all help given toward making the Shakespearean hlay Day a success. To the Art, Sewing, and Costume depart- ments, we express our ardent thanks for the completeness of the posters and cos- tumes. To the English and Vocational classes, we can say that their scenes deserve much credit. The Gym classes did splendidly and helped greatly in com- pleting the program. Also, the Qrchestra and various choruses responded in a not- able fashion. The Shop boys are to be commended on their services so willingly given. It was appetizing to help the cooking classes care for their sale of cream and candies. The Faculty committees and Student committees arranged every- thing in the best possible way. All others, not included under the above mentioned heads, executed their respective duties in a business-like manner. These and their audience, the Seniors thank most gra- ciously. Wie feel thatt, hough we are partially repaying this debt of gratitude with the present we are leaving to the school, purchased with the proceeds of the celebration, we can never repay, but in appreciation, all the assistance given for the Tercentenary Celebration. Louis HEITKAM, Prfridfizf. SHAKILSPEARICAN CELEBRATION Nlay 9, 1916, proved to be one of the ideal days willed by the June '16 class for all Tech's future out-of-door performance. By two o'clock the campus formed the back-ground for the merrymakers. The procession started from the main building procession started from the main build- ing, wound through the woods, and emerged east of the poen space before the Powder hlagazine. just to refresh your memories we print the names of events and changes in program made necessary at-the last moment. 18 THE ARSENAL CANNON THE r1l1IliA'l'IiR l,vNDIjR 'riiig GREENwooD TRELL MAY 9, 1916 JKT 3 11,CI,OCK 1.

Wihy stoop to trivial things When all around us, The greatest tasks on earth, Await our hands. What though mid briars and brambles Wie may stumble, Wvhat though we falter oft And sometimes fall, Well win at last The goal for which we struggle, Well win the goal, Our faith will pull us through. W'e'll win, nor cringe and whine Wlhen all things fail, Well win, nor boast nor brag Wvhen we are done. W'e'll win, for all things come To him who holdeth The power of self-reliance In his heart.

On the evening of June ninth the members of the three classes will have a banquet in the lunch room and perfect an organization. Later in the evening there will probably be a dance in the gym. The Committee in charge of arrangements is composed of lXIary 1Xf1cPheeters, Chairmang Donald Durmang Edward Oweng Bertha Gelmang Mary Jordan, Genevieve Anthonyg and Louis Heitkam. 1Yith the graduation of these pioneer classes and the formation of a loyal group of student-citizens, Tech- nical completes the lirst step in her history. The January class of 1917 held its first meeting, Thursday, May 18, the eighth period, for the purpose of organization, under the supervision of hlr. Alills. Louis Heitkam, president of the June '16 'E1K,"'i1vas the presiding olhcer. Frank Hoke was elected president, with Helen Schwartz as vice-president. Esther Wood was elected secretaryg and Dallas Crooke won the election for treasurer. Ikflr. hfIills states that this January class is composed of about fifty members which is an increase of about twenty members over the January class of 1916. CLASS DAY The -Iune graduates have arranged for Class Day at the 1VoodrulI Place Baptist Church, on the evening of June sixth. Friends and relatives will constitute the guests. The present plans for program include: The Senior lXfIale Quartette, Sen- ior Girls' Chorus, vocal and instrumental solos, class history, poem, will, song, and prophesy. The latter will probably be given in dialogue form. 1Vhat characters in "hfIerry Wlives of VVindsor,' are the same as promi- nent cars? Ans. "Ford and Paige."

The pictures which we hope to have taken will be printed in the inagaline number next January. The Commencement for June 1916 serves a triple purpose. The lirst is that it is the graduation exercises of the pupils completing their high school course this June and last Ianuarvg the second, that it marks the completion of the first unit of Technical High School, the third, that it is the way we have planned to celebrate the birth of our state, Indiana. Of the lirst and second enough has been and will be said in other places to allow only the mention of them here. Of the third we cannot say too much. In honor of the Centennial we have planned to make our Commencement an historical dramatization of the principal events in the history of our state which directly concern Indianapolis. The Sen- iors obtained this material in their Eng- lish work the lirst semester of this year from several sources, especially from the state and city libraries and, information given by people living in Indianapolis who know something of its history. This material was put into the hands of a committee who rewrote it into the formof a pageant to be given by the Seniors instead of the usual commencement pro- gram. The characters will include all the members of both senior classes, and the boys and girls in the gymnasium classes, numbering -128. The pageant consists of a Prologue, Episode I, The New Order, Episode II, The Pioneer, Episode III, Foundation for the Future, Episode IV, The Civil lVarg and an Epilogue. The Prologue, a song embodying joy, was written by Lucille Nlower. Episode I contains Scene I, written by Jcssiemarie hIauzy. Epi- sode II contains Scene I, The Choosing of the Capital in the Woods, by hflildred Durbin, Scene II, Life in the New Pur- chase, by Louis I-Ieitkamg Scene III, The Vllestern Trail, by Julia B. Shea. Episode III contains Scene I, The Capital Comes to the lVoods, by hlaurice Daugherty, Scene II, An Early Lobby, by Ernestina Brown and Paul Heath. Episode IV contains Scene 1, United Efforts, by Martha Holland, Scene II, The Spirit of '61, by Ezra Clark and Louise Hiatt. The Epilogue, a symbolic act- showing Justice and Power triumphing over Evil, was written by lliallace Vilest. J. S.

Hardy also, with the aid of "Cotton" Koehler, managed to defeat Kunkel and Daugher- ty for the doubles title. Each of the winners received a racquet while the runners up received shoes. During this year Tech's first Athletic Association was organized. The officers of the athletic board were elected as follows: President, VVinters Fehrg Secre- tary, William Lowe, Student Nic-mber, Albert Daugherty, Treasurer, Txfr. Ander- son, Faculty lXffember, lXflr. lXffcKenzie. ' THIRD TTEAR Wlith the beginning of the third year Tech began tc. .show some real life in her athletics. Basketball was started soon after Christmas. Six teams were select- ed, the Blacks, Browns, Reds, Blues, Purples, and Greens. The captains were Butler, Lawson, Fehr, Daugherty, A. Brown, and VVise respectively. The basketball season was delayed on account of work on the school lockers. VVhen playing was finally resumed the Blacks began a march through the league until the final whistle of the season was blown. They finished as follows: Blacks. Reds. . Reds, . Browns Greens... Purples. .. .... Blues.. 900 5 00 700 5 00 -L00 3 00 200 The minor league in basketball was also organized, the captains and teams being: Greys, Stedfeldg Blues, Haymaker Reds, Stewart, Wfhites, Kunkleg Purples, Crookeg and Blacks, Fischer. The White were victors over the Blues for the championship. On February lst it was announced that Tech would have her first state basket- ball team. Those who comprised the team were: Fehr, Butler, Wise, A. Brown, Lawson, Nutt, and Daugherty. After many hard "workouts" the team went to Franklin to meet Shelbyville in their first game. The Shelbyville aggregation was too strong for our boys and defeated them 37-19. After the meet, monogram teams were hosen. The players selected were: GREENs REDS Shields Forward Myers H. Brown Forward VVheat 'Warren Center Owen Hartlauf Guard Nfode Gillette Guard Heitkarn Bowers Sub. Steinmeyer The Reds defeated the Greens in this series. lXffonograms were given to H. Brown, 'Wheat, and hfyers. Gn February 26th, a new Athletic Association was organized. However the officers remained the same as last semes- 'ECIZ Gn February 11th, a mass meeting was held with the object of starting Techfs first track team. lXlr. Brunkow, who presided, gave a rousing talk on track. Over sixty boys reported at Vlfillard Park for practice. In April a triangular inter- class meet was held at Butler College. The first year men won with thirty-five points. The Juniors were close seconds with thirty-three, while the Sophs trailed with sixteen points. The winners were Perkins, Koehring, Hoke, Butler, Fehr, Sharp, and Galloway. A dual track meet was held a few weeks later between the Wliites and Greens. The latter won 61- 53. The individual winners were Per- kins, Holliday, Robinson, Koehring, A. Brown, Hoke, Butler, Fehr, and Gallo- way. The two events led to the final choosing of the track team to represent THE ARSENAL CANNON 33 P Q if my iffy -IO- BAS li l'i'l' B.Xl,l.

Bliss Smith super- vised the first two years of athletics. She had to spend her afternoons at Man- ual so she could give only school periods for sports at Tech. However, a hockey club, base-ball teams and volley ball teams, were organized during the first tern. Wie were fortunate in having good grounds so well adapted to out door work, since our gym was in such poor condition. The gym was then the second fioor in the hall, including what is now room 27. The last two years we have had lX'1iss Patterson for the girls' gym instructor and athletic coach. 1n the autumn of 191-1 the girls partic- ipated in tennis and hockey only. That same fall a tennis tournament was played onthe school court. Florence Buenting won the tournament and as no monograms were given the girls at this time, she was presented with a silk tie. NVe have had no more tournaments for the girls. During the winter, basketball took the place of other sports. The girls organ- ized several teams and did fairly good work. As the time passed, with the good coaching of bliss Patterson, the new girls learned their game well and the older ones improved. Hockey was the only supervised game for the girls in the fall of 1915. At the close of the season, the girls played several match games and received monograms. The opening of the 1915-16 basketball season brought forth many of the girls who had played before, besides several new ones. The teams were well matched and played good, swift games. At the beginning of the spring semester only two full teams lined up. On Rlarch 16, a championship game was played after which judges chose the best players. lklonograms were awarded the four best players on the winning team, and the three best players on the losing team. Bliss Patterson also has provided several entertainments for her pupils, besides exhibitions of their work. 1n spite of the poor facilities for athletic training, the gym work is interesting and very valuable. Wie are making the best of every situation. The following girls have received mono- grams for the excellence of their work in athletics during the past four years.

All the boys received monograms. hiuch credit is due our track coach for the excellent record made by the boysr Tech's 1915 baseball teams were organ- ized in April. The teams and captains were as follows: Braves, Harris, Techfeds, Holliday: Cubs, hfleyersg Indians, Kim- mick. The season finished with the teams lined up in this order: Braves, Cubs, Techfeds, and Indians. lVIono- gram teams were then chosen. hfieyers was captain of the Greens and Harris of the Wlhites. First blood went to hfleyers to the tune of 16-6. He also won the next game giving his team the "rag" Sherman, Harris, Kimmick, lV1eyers, Hol- liday, Connor, and H. Brown received monograms. The Hchampsn in the spring tennis tournament were Erwin, in singles: Erwin and Daugherty, in doubles. In the fall tournament Erwin again won in the singles, Erwin and Koehler in the doubles The winners in each contest received monograms and prizes.

The VVhites won the first and third games by the scores of 24-21 and 22-18. The second game was lost 18-13. Those who received mono- grams were Wise and A. Brown. Tech was represented at the state tourney, at Martinsville, by a strong team. They won their first two games from Oaklandon and Castleton by the N AL CANNON scores of 22-12 and 27-23. In the South- port team, Tech found an unbeatable team and hence were defeated 37-15. H. Brown, hfleyers, Daugherty, Fehr, NIode, Wfagner, and Lawson received monograms for their service at Martins- ville. Soon after, baseball started. Four teams were selected: Braves, Harris, Giants, Spottsg Indians, H. Brown, Ti- gers, Heitkam. Athletics, during the past four years, has been invaluable in the development of Tech, in maintaining a wholesome and loyal spirit among the students. It was found out later that the "'White Stari' restaurant of NIartinsville went into bankruptcy because of the great amount of food our State Basketball Team ate that Saturday night.

TRACK THAN The score at the end of the Indiana Track Meet at Franklin, Saturday the 20th, found the three Indianapolis High Schools among the first ten point winners. Tech, as last year, took five points due to the work of Perkins. Cap't " Perku took the 220 yard dash, defeating Schultz of Evansville by several feet. CSchultz defeated Butler of Shortridge in the 100 yard dash.D Koehring, who had reached the finals, won his heat in the semi-finals, however his time was slower than the first three men of the first heat and there- fore he did not place. Techls relay team, which was one of the five to reach the finals, lost its "pep" and was defeated. Therefore it may be said that our track team did exceptionally well. Although the team did exceptionally well it was not supported on account of the few Tech rooters. Tech was repre- sented with about twenty-five Techites and these failed to bring out the cheering and spirit that was prevalent at hfartins- ville. However, we hope in fulure track meets, and other athletic meets as well, to have a representation that shall equal that of any other school in the meet. Tech has everything to gain, and, as yet, nothing to lose. D. F. c. TENNIS FLOURISHES The usual Spring tournament is being held on the Tech courts. The matches were delayed somewhat, thus giving the boys time to get in "form." An unusual amount of "pep" is displayed by most of the contestants, especially by the amount of "pep" is displayed by most of the contestants, especially by the Daugherty brothers, and " Cotton" Koeh were delayed somewhat, thus giving the boys time to get in "form," An unusual amount of "pep" is displayed by most of the contestants, especially by the Dougherty brothers, and "Cotton unusual amount of f'pep" is displayed by most of the contestants, especially by the Daugherty brothers, and f'Cotton,' Koehler. About thirty-five boys signed up for the singles. 'fCotton," with his famous Mlobf' had little trouble in get- ting to the finals and then defeated Heitkam, the "runner-up," three sets out of five, thus giving him the victory in three successive tournaments. "Cot- tonw received as a prize one of a number of racquets given by the merchants of the city. The doubles are not yet finished, but honors are conceded to lXfIcCullough and Koehler. There has been some talk of holding a mixed doubles contest but it is too late to start this term. Prob- THE ARSENAL CANNON 37 TENNIS CONTINUED ably our initial tournament of this sort will be played in the fall. The "Profs', have also been bitten by the tennis "bug," As a result of their enthusiasm and generosity, and of the excellent work of the tennis committee composed of H. hIcKenzie, I-I. IXI. Buerckholz and L. jones, two new courts have been constructed on the south-west part of the campus. That these courts are very popular is proven by the fact that they are almost in con- stant use from the close of the school day until sundown. Singles, doubles, and mixed doubles tournament is being played by the teachers now. Wie can played by the teachers now. We are not able to predict the winner of any of these contests yet. A number of stars are 'cloomingn up and some real champ- ionship form is expected before the close of the season. i Because of the increasing facilities and of the renewed interest in tennis, on the part of both pupils and teachers a success- ful future of this branch of athletics at Tech is assured. PERKINS GOES TO CHICAGO Kfr. Brunkow and Earl Perkins plan to attend the Stagg hfeet in Chicago, june 10. This event is really a United States Olympian Contest, to which any high school student winning a first place in any State hIeet in the Union, is eli- gible. As Perkins qualified at Franklin in the 220, he has earned his entrance to this meet which is to be held on Stagg Field, the athletic grounds of the Uni- versity of Chicago. Tech's best wishes go with him in his run. SENIOR PARTY On lNIay 31 the Seniors had a farewell party in the gym. Excellent music offered special inducements for dancing. About five-thirty the party adjourned to the campus to investigate the contents of box lunches which the girls brought. The entire group sat down in a big circle to enjoy the feast. ALUMNI PIN TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL XT. VIL' Illm FED r , kgs,-gf ' I Q, gfifswirig EI ' HISTORICALLY CORRECT Those who read the word book, or see the Commencement Pageant will be glad to learn that the Ijpochs and incidents are historically correct. The writers spared no pains, but verified dates, and searched old documents, journals, trea- ties, and newspaper files for information. hIany speeches, such as that used by Abagail Cady in the presentation of the iiag to the Iiirst Indiana Regiment, are exact quotations. PROLOGUE OF COBIMILNCERIICNT PAGEANT The scene is a wood in the springtime. hlusic is in the air and soon voices are heard carolling the joys of the season. Groups of spirits, representing thc forest appear from every side swaying their garlands of fiowers and singing: From the warm and sunny southland, iVhere the liowers ever blow, To the frigid northern regions XIerrily we onward go. Chorus hIcrry, Xferry, hferry sj ringtime! How gladly we welcome thee! hIerry, hferry, hIerry springtime! To thee our voices ring. hlerry, .XIerry, hferry springtime! How beautiful art thou! hferry, KIerry, KIerry springtime. Oh, joyously we sing! I For our shade grow mighty oak trees, In whose branches breezes play, VVhile on ev'ry side the wild fiowers, Bring the joy of merry Kfay. Chorus All the woods are filled with gladnessg Ev'ry fiower and bird and tree, In the forestfs revel swaying, Sings a joyous anthem free. At the conclusion of the song, the forest spirits dance joyously. Viihile they 38 THE ARSENAL CANNON are dancing, the spirits of the Vlfhite River come onto the stage, slowly wend- ing their way among the dancers in a Serpentine march. As they march they sing: From the dark and shady forests, Where soft summer breezes play, Into valleys green and cooling Wie go happily our way. On our banks tall trees are growing, Overhead blue skies look downg And all nature sings of gladness Even when the fields are brown. In this well beloved region, Onward, ever on we How, Never doubting, never fearing Naught but freedom where we go. IXYhile the river spirits have been sing- ing, the forest spirits gradually retire to the rear and, at the conclusion of the song, the Queen of the spirits gives a solo dance, accompanied by the other river spirits. The whistling of the wind recalls them to their labors and both forest and river spirits respond tu the call.l LUCILE Mowex. SPILYIAL MUSIC The orchestra has been "tuned upu for some time practicing on the Pageant music. Besides playing the :pecial ac- companiments needed in the performance itself, the orchestra will give a fifteen minute program before the presentation of diplomas. The audience will thus be entertained while the graduates travel from pageant-land to accept their com- mencement certificates. Rlusic for the Class day, in so far as has been possible, has been chosen from the work of Indiana composers. Jessie- marie lVIauzy and Jean Heller have had much of committee responsibility along this line. Albert Dougherty, Robert Lowes, Russell Cook, and Everett Hughes compose one quartette. There is also a girls' chorus and a quartette composed of mixed voices. Bliss Kaltz is always drilling for some Technical event. PAGEANT CGSTUIXIES The collection of suitable costumes for the Pageant has brought many pleasant surprises along with the hard work. For the various Epochs many of the charac- ters have secured genuine period costum ters have secured genuine period cos- tumes. About twenty-five girls will wear entire suits of genuine old clothing. hIany have found shawls, mits, bonnets, and laces belonging in the treasure boxes of friends and relatives, and have bor- rowed these fincries of bye-gone days to aid in making the past more real. Each student has collected with his costume some bit of history which had been packed with the garment. Each person who loaned from his store of keepsakes, increased his pleasure and refreshed his memory. There is much Indiana His- tory which will be "seen and not heardn on Thursday night. The dance costumes worn by the symbolical characters in the Prologue, were designed for the Freeport Pageant, by NIiss Potter of the Chalif, and Vernon Castle Schools of New York. Any one who has gone through the hall on the second floor of the main building and has seen the piles of sateen and cheese cloth presided over by hIiss Jasper, Bliss Bard, and lNIiss Stebbins, knows where the great number of costumes were created. VVhen work goes on in an open hall, it helps us to appreciate what often is unknown labor, always necessary to such undertakings. The drawing cab- inet outside the office has been a show case, decorated each day. At one time "VVealth's" robe lay in state with its "jewels" "ermine," and "gold" decor- ation. The next day one might have bought from the same counter a variety of hats ranging from and Indian's feath- ered head piece, through straw, felt, and silk plug varieties. The effect of costume and color in the Epilogue completes the variety of costumes needed by the four hundred and thirty-eight students par- ticipating in the Indianapolis pageant. Notice: lX'Ir. Brunkow's IXtIusketeers are not observing our "keep off the grass" signs.

Vlfhile Vifayne was talking, Virgil had been dreaming of catching fish or swim- ming which he would rather have been doing than being in class that morning.

SENIOR SLIPS A Certain Senior, after turning her ankle on an unusually rough place on the new cinder path between the barn and barracks: "I expected to have to walk on cinder paths in afterlife but if the cinders down there cat your shoes as much as these at Tech, I believe it will be an inducement to be good." In Indiana History, third hour, Klr. Flick: "VVhy was the northwestern ter- ritory divided into the states of lVIichigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois?" Jessiemarie hlauzy: "Because it was too little as it wasf, Harriet Kahler was asked what she intended doing with her pictures that she had taken for the June Class. She replied that .she hadn't the slightest idea of any use to put them to, unless she put them on automobiles to start them, as she thought any one of them would be a self-starter for any machine. NAL CANNON DID HE SLIP? On April 26, lXfIiss Goddard sent George Shultz over to the main building to inquire whether it would be all right for her Literature VII class lin room 735 to come over for the auditorium exercises. XIiss Goddard then informed the class that they would go over as soon as George returned. The class awaited Georgc's return in vain. Every time a door was heard to open or go shut with a bang, someone would call out, "Here he comesf, and instantly the class would prepare to make a "break" for the door. However the said person failed to be George Shultz. Neither the teacher nor the pupils learned what became of him, but, as he did not return that period, they all came to the conclusion, and it is still the accepted belief, that George became so interested in the auditorium exercises that he forgot to return. Klay 2, a picture was taken of all the pupils enrolled at Tech. Albert Dough- erty was so afraid of not being seen in the picture that he climbed up on Joe Langdon's shoulders. The bugle sounded and Albert had just completed the oper- ation of arranging his complexion, when someone gave Joe a slight push from the rear causing him to drop Albert who came not only to the ground but also to grief as his hair was mussed and the camera passed while he was down. It was rumored about that when James Kenney heard a picture was to be taken of all the pupils, he was one of the first to appear, and after waiting for a few min- utes he concluded that he would go home and put on his best suit. Report also says that he returned too late. On the same day VVinters Fehr said, NI wish they had asked me to play the bugle instead of Gordon Stewart, then I could say that once I told every student in Tech what to do. Ask Fred Bakemeyer about a piece of tinfoil. THE ARSENAL CANNON 41 Senoir: Say, you had better keep your eyes open at Tech. Freshie: Why? Senior: Because you can't see if you don't. If there were track events for girls, Helen lXIcArthur would stand a good chance of winning an event as she did pretty well in a race across the campus with hfr. Carrol. Helen came in second. At the tryouts for 4'The Taming of the Shrew," Xliss Goddard wished to get some girl to take the part of " Katherine. " Kliss Goddard said, "Katherine is a girl who has quite a temper, but she is very beautiful." Ernestina Brown, "Oh, l'm not good- looking enough to take that part." julia Shea, "I was thinking that my- elf." In Commercial Law, lXf'lr.

At the Shakespearian Tercentenary, Henry Dollman experienced considerable difficulty in eating an ice cream cone with his make-up on, and by sheer pluck and grim determination only, did he succeed in keeping his mustache and ice cream separated. Yvhen lfary Jordon Cas Lady lXflacbethJ learned that Frank Hoke was chosen to take the part of hfacbeth, she said that it would be a regular uhfutt and Jeffw act. Art Hewitt was in hopes that no one would recognize him at the Shakespearian Celebration as he had on such a Hqueern costume.
