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. Continued on page ten

Stuart now comes 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, program schedules 58 classes in Iinglishg 26 in History, 55 in mathematics, 32 in drawing, and -IU in foreign languages, "The groves were Tech's first lunch roomf' Then the Guard House by the gate-way claimed the honor. As the school increased its enrollment, it out- grew its "lunchery." Ilihen the Bar- racks became another school house, its first floor made us a fine lunch room. XVe have, however, outgrown these quar- ters. liven with our "half-dayu and with numerous requests to ulunch at homef, the capacity of the lunch room is "over- workedf, The first term, we occupied AQZOD, 134215, Cf22J, 23, 2-I, 25, 26, and part of the second floor of the Shops and the Electrical Shops. The second term creat- ed 27. The third term demanded 3-I, 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.
