2 THE ARSENAL CANNON
HISTORY OI" THE ARSILNAL
In 1861, when the Ifederal Government
was unalbe to furnish the first Indiana
troops with ammunition. 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
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
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-
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-
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.
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
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
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

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-
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-
The course in applied science was a
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
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.

6 THE ARSENALCANNON
THE FIRST DAY AT TECH
Un the first day of Tech's existence,
Vliednesday afternoon, September 11th,
1912, though the pupils were not to
arrive until 1:30, the eager students-to-
be came earlier than that hour, all curious
to see the new high school. 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.
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.
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
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
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-
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

8 THE ARSENAL CANNON
THE GERMAN CLUB'S FIRST
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.
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
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-

out to see us every day. The present
program offers thirty-two subjects in
most of which we have duplicate classes.
Besides other daily classes, the schools,

35, 36, and 37, and a railing in the hall
"for an oflicefl Then the gym lost a
section from its west side to make 30,
31, 32, and 33. 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.

12 THE ARSEN
In addition to the work of the regular
high school and its departments of indus-
trial training, there are at present, six
distinct schools of vocational training in
connection with Technical High School.
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
In the first two years the boys will
receive a large amount of practical exper-
ience in carpentry, cement, and concrete
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
SCHOOL FOR ELECTRICAL
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
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
THE VOCATIONAL MACHINE
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
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
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
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,
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

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

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.

A REVIEW OF OUR SCHOOL
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

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
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.

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
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

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-

lettering and general art work.
THE SUPREME COURT
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

RICHISARSING FUR THE S1-IAKlf.SP11AREI.'XN CEl,lilSRA'l'1ON
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.
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.

THE JUNE 1916 CLASS SONG
Oh Technical, our school so true,
Wie sing our praises now to you,
The campus with its trees so tall,
The buildings, and old tower hall,
A pleasant, welcome memory,
'Though years may pass so swiftly by
W'e'll ne'er forget our dear Tech High.
Chorus: Oh Technical, dear Technical,
The years may find us far away,
But all of thy fond memories
Wiill linger in each heart for aye.
Oh Technical, how soon 'twill be,
When we must bid farewell to thee,
Our friends and teachers all so true,
Our pleasures here have not been few,
The day is near when we must part,
But love for thee is in each heart,
VVe leave the dear old white and green,
Best wishes from class June Sixteen.
Chorus: Oh Technical, dear Technical,
The years may find us far away,
But all of thy fond memories
Will linger in each heart for aye.

JUNE '16 -CLASS POEM
Our hopes are high.
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.

lXIarch 10, 1915. Tech participated in
her first basketball tourney at Franklin.
Flay 19, 1915. lVe were hosts as well

cass ict is commencement at the
October 29, 1915. The chorus assisted
at the Teachers, Convention held at the
October 29, 1915. The Latin Chorus
sang for the classical section of Indiana-
polis at Odeon Hall. The chorus showed
so much enthusiasm and was so earnest
that its received special mention in the
Classical Journal of the hfliddle VVest and
South, published by the classical section
of Chicago. The selections that pleased
most were a Tech yell and a school song.
Letters have been received from various
schools and colleges regarding the forma-
tion of our chorus and several prominent
men from large universities have praised
November 21, 1915. The chorus met
in front of the Court House and welcomed

The Technical High School Commence-
ment this year will be held glune8, at the
hlurat hteater. 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.

During the four years of Tech's exist-
ence the girls have taken part in various
forms of athletics. 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
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
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
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

were as follows: Braves, Harris, Techfeds,

teams lined up in this order: Braves,

were: Blues, Wise, Greens, Lawson,

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
scores of 22-12 and 27-23. In the South-
port team, Tech found an unbeatable
team and hence were defeated 37-15.

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.

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,

able to predict the winner of any of
these contests yet. A number of stars
are 'cloomingn up and some real champ-

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.

to learn that the Ijpochs and incidents

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

garlands of fiowers and singing:
From the warm and sunny southland,

To the frigid northern regions
XIerrily we onward go.

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

Where soft summer breezes play,
Into valleys green and cooling

On our banks tall trees are growing,

The orchestra has been "tuned upu
for some time practicing on the Pageant

companiments needed in the performance
itself, the orchestra will give a fifteen
minute program before the presentation
of diplomas. The audience will thus be

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.
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

ticipating in the Indianapolis pageant.

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.
