"7 ecafbun W' Q4 Uiiafpg ' COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES Commencement exercises of the January and June classes of 1917 will be held on Thursday, June 14. Simplicity is the keynote of the program. This year there will be no individual speaker for the evening but instead eight members of the classes will present individually the different phases of Technical High School life. First, Hellen Algeo, June '17, describes "Tech at Home." Her talk is chiefly an appreciation of Tech's setting. She also traces through her talk the parallel between Technical and the home. She tells of the difficulties of the school authorities in struggling for our school and of the final decision of the Supreme court. In concluding her address she gives a brief description of the grounds and pupils. Sidney Dailey of the January class will talk on "Tech at Work," giving an account of the organization of the school and of the varied course of study offered. Caroline McMath, June '17, in describing "Tech at Play," briefly reviews our different branches of athletics and describes the many forms of recreation. She sets forth the aim of the different organiza- tions, the Glee Clubs, Cabinet, Spanish Club, Electrical Club, Orches- tra, Ukelele Club and Band. She tells also of the Shakespearian Festival given at Tech last spring, of our floats in the Indiana Centennial Pageant. "Tech at Lunch, " a subject of universal interest, will be discussed by Arline Webster. Her address is a comparative history of Tech's lunch rooms. She has procured for the first time some interesting information concerning the first lunch room-the old Guard House near Michigan street. She makes her talk quite effective by some charts which show the amount of food consumed by the great army of hungry "Techites" and the proportions of various foods used. As the concluding part of the program Houston Meyer calls to- gether the senior class for a final meeting. At this time members of the class will address the seniors and the audience upon the subject of "Welfare Ideas," thus showing the standards of Technical which have been established during its five years' existence. Jack Haymaker gives the first of these talks in which he shows that scholarship is an important feature of high school work. Dallas Crooke outlines Tech's ideal in athletics, emphasizing clean, honest playing and athletics for everyone. He gives the plan for the Tech-A Club, an organization to create more interest in athletics and to give every boy a chance of discovering what he really can do. "Tech's Ideal in Integrity" is the theme of the talk given by Frances Jones. She suggests a student Council and urges voluntary cooperation in a school for the purpose of regarding other students' rights and property. 4 THE ARSENAL CANNON "Tech's Ideal in Social Life" is explained by Marguerite Mahoney of the January class. She shows that the social life of a school does not lie wholly in parties and social gatherings but largely in meeting people everyday. These various ideas are to be drawn up in the form of a set of resolutions and presented, by the president of the June class, to Mr. Stuart, in the name of the .I une class, in order to show him what their standards are. After the adoption of these resolutions a series of motion pictures of Tech's activities will be shown. This set of films is a gift of the June class to the school as a means of making a perma- nent record of the important occurrences of 1917 as well as keeping ever fresh the memories of the class of that year. EXTENSIVE SUMMER SCHOOL PLANS MADE Shortridge and Tech are planning to conduct summer schools during the summer. Shortridge as usual, will attempt to pound language and math into the heads of her pupils While Tech will teach several hundred boys and girls how to make their hands efficient. The fact is Tech is to have a vocational school. It will be open to all persons over fourteen years old wishing to study agriculture, office work and automobile construction. Classes will meet six days a week in the morning only. The agricultural course will include food preservation for girls and food conservation for boys and girls as Well as home sewing for girls and household management for women. The gardening will also be an important factor. If the present plans mature we will receive tomatoes, corn, beans, potatoes, beets, peas and pumpkins grown and preserved right here at Tech for our lunch checks next term. The ofiice work is to come under the name of the Ofiice Finishing Course. It is conducted for the purpose of "finishing" pupils who have gotten credits in bookkeeping, shorthand and typewriting in order that they will have a better chance of filling ofiice positions satisfactorily. The automobile construction course is to be "the big thing." It is divided into three units. One will deal with the construction and operation of the gasoline engine and chassis of automobiles. The second unit is a study of the manufacturing processes of automobiles. To make this course more interesting several visits will probably be made to the large automobile plants in Indianapolis. The third unit is the study of the electricity of the automobile. That is, the starting, lighting, and ignition systems. In connection with these three courses there are to be three electives. These are elementary and advanced mechanical drawing, applied electricity, and machine shop practice. In addition there Will be a special course in the care of the automobile intended for owners and drivers of machines. It will teach them how to repair tires, ad- just carburetors and will endeavor to touch on the countless general details of automobile work. C. P. B. THE ARSENAL CANNON 5 MEMORIAL FLAG RAISED WITH HONOR Though May 22nd, which had been set aside as Supreme Day, was only a blur of rain and wind the following Tuesday, May 29th proved a glorious sign that the weather-man favored the Memorial Flag- raising exercises held that day. The ceremonies were by far the most elaborate efforts of this year. Beginning at twelve-thirty, the band gave its supreme concert. At one-fifteen the girls' gym classes executed a series of drills in the finished style that only Miss Patterson can produce. Then at two o'clock the patriots of Tech and of Indianapolis assembled around the flag-pole for final ceremonies. After the invocation, "Praise Ye the Father, " sung by the Chorus, Technical High School presented the "Triumph of Liberty," a panto- Ilnimle written by Miss Shover and staged by the author and Miss 'ric '. This begins with the "Messiah of Nations" a brilliant choral work. In the prologue of "The Triumph of Liberty, " Liberty CClara Meyersj wearing a cloak of war and carrying a tall mountain-climbers' staff says that, after having traveled for three thousand years over the earth helping people to establish republics, she has come to America to help the Colonists who have recently declared their independence. Here she hopes to establish a strong brave nation which will help the world to free itself from the bonds of tyranny. The pantomime follows acted to the accompaniment of the orchestra which plays national songs and repeats the Dirge of War, Famine and Death, at the beginning of each period of war. In 1777, George Washington CRussell Kirshmanl and John Paul Jones CGlenn Bertelsl followed by six color bearers of the colonial flags QScott Clifford, Frank Standish, Abram Lorber, David Jordan, Frank Shotters and Paul Stiversl discuss the necessity of having one flag for the new nation and with Betsy Ross plan the original American flag. At the close of the Revolutionary War in 1783 Washington and John Paul Jones return to present their flags of triumph to Liberty. Betsy Ross, QMargaret Kieferj gives a small Hag. The children offer the Goddess of Liberty a shield for her hair. In 1814, which marks the Second War of Independence William Henry Harrison, fNewell Greenl and Oliver Perry CBernard Lorberl offer their flags, which have fifteen stripes, to Liberty as a token of further victory. After the close of the Civil War in 1865, the veterans Cmembers of the G. A. RJ representing the soldiers of this period of strife, carry to Liberty their flags of victory. In a similar way, in 1899, the volunteers representing the soldiers of ghe Spanish American War add to Liberty's possessions their battle ags. In 1917 a girl from Technical High School QElsa Nordmanl learns from the spirit of Betsy Ross how to complete the flag of today which has forty-eight stars. She and pupils representing those who have enlisted in the present war offer this Hag which as yet has won no battles. Liberty consults the other flag bearers who advise her to accept this flag. Shegrequests these pupils to raise the flag. Just then 6 THE ARSENAL CANNON the bugler fDale Sommersj gives the call "To Arms." The enlisted pupils leave after calling two Freshmen to complete the work begun. These call in the representatives of the Boy Scouts who in turn consult the regular color squad from Fort Benjamin Harrison. Then while the orchestra played "The Star Spangled Banner" the Memorial Flag was raised in honor of the one unfurled in 1864 by the government, and as tribute to the ultimate triumph of Liberty. CONTRIBUTORS The CANNON is glad of this opportunity to acknowledge the gifts of those who made possible the erection of the steel flag-pole and the raising of Old Glory with all due ceremony.

Without its generosity, more money would have been needed and we might not have realized our ambition for a flag-pole, so soon. We are also deeply grateful to Judge James A. Collins, president of the Parent-Teacher's Association, for his interest and cooperation and to those citizens, many of whose names are printed above, who assisted him. As the "Stars and Stripes" Hoat once more above the Arsenal Grounds, may each contributor feel a thrill of pride and say, "Old Glory-I helped to put you there." TECH WINS BASEBALL CHAMPIONSHIP Not often does any school produce a winning team during its first year of participation in any branch of athletics. Yet this is What Tech has done when the baseball team defeated all comers at the state meet held at Lafayette under the auspices of Purdue University on Friday and Saturday, May 25 and 26. The Green and White was scheduled to meet Anderson on Friday, but that school decided at the last moment not to send a team to the tournament. So this game was forfeited to Tech. In the second round of play our opponent was the Manual team and this contest proved to be the most exciting of the series. Sherman, the pitching star of the meet, was in form and pitched air tight ball with men on the bases. At no time did his team mates fail to back him up. The work of the entire infield bordered on the sensational. With the bases full, Kimmick hauled down a fly in deep center and by making a perfect throw to the plate completed a double play, thus foiling Manual's chances of scoring in that round. Again with the bases full, the stands were brought to their feet when George Meyer nailed a sizzling liner that looked good enough to bring in a couple of scores, and by pegging to second, effected another double play. The game ended with a score of 7 to 3, putting Tech into the finals where they had to face Kewanna, the victor over Jefferson High School of Lafayette. Kewanna failed to even make things interesting for the Tech midgets and at no time during this fray was our team in danger. Again Sherman's pitching was excellent and his opponents were held to two lonely runs, one scored in the opening inning and the other in the ninth frame. In the meantime our champions were making things extra safe by pounding in twelve tallies. Ash, H. Meyer, and Broughton featured with their timely hitting. The games were umpired by Harry C. Geisel of Indianapolis, who stated after the contests that Tech presented one of the strongest and fastest high school teams he had witnessed for several years. To coaches Gorman and Spence belong a great deal of credit for round- ing out a championship team in Tech's first year in baseball. Prospects for next season are bright as but two regulars, Houston Meyer and Harry Brown, will be lost through graduation. 8 THE ARSENAL CANNON TYPISTS WIN TROPHY Probably many pupils in Technical still know nothing of the splen- did records which the Typewriting classes have been making. Twenty- three high schools were entered in the Third Annual Indiana High School Typewriting Contest. Two of them were Typewriting II classes from Tech. These two classes entered as novices. One of the Typewriting II classes won the entire contest by making their class average, 32.1 words a minute, the highest. Doris Rucker, who made the highest number of words a minute, certainly deserves special mention. She made a record of 48.8 words a minute. This entitles her to a leather card-case given by the Rem- ington Typewriting Co. Other pupils who have earned honorable mention are Gordon Zink, who made a record of 44.4 words a minute, Gertrude Glockner, whose record was 43.8 words to the minute, and Howard Templeton, whose record was 43.2 words a minute. More honor can be attributed to these two Typewriting classes when we consider the fact that they had only about two-thirds as much time in which to practice as other contesting schools. This shortage of time was due to the weeks of twenty-minute periods at the begin- ning of the term. This department is now entitled to a trophy for the winning of the contest. TECHITES WIN IN LITERARY CONTEST In a recent contest conducted by the Indianapolis Real Estate Board, eight Technical High School pupils won prizes. The dis- tinguished are Myrtle Freeberg, Robert Schmuck, Henry Coughlin, Maisie McGowan, Helen Kitchell, Doris Carr, Mildred Hoffman and Charles Bridges. There were thirty-nine prizes awarded, one twenty- five dollar, one iifteen dollar, one ten dollar, one five dollar, ten two dollar, and twenty-five one dollar prizes. The theme was "Why Buy a Home"? Even though five thousand would-be scribes expounded at length on that subject twenty percent of those who made money on their ideas were Techites. Who said Tech isn't on the map? ELECTRICAL SCHOOL HAS SOME CLASS On Tuesday, May 22, the June graduating class of electricity IV's held a short meeting to elect officers. Out of a class of forty-two starting in this work, only four are left to graduate. The class is "twice blessed" for is it not distinguished by being the smallest class on record, and is not Earl Wagner, of athletic fame, its president? Yes Indeed! Earl Wagner shall be known to the widest bounds of theffschool as the man who made the "Big Four" famous. The full sta is: Earl Wagner-president. Fred Maibucher-vice-president. Harry Southern-treasurer. Edgar Sanders-secretary. THE ARSENAL CANNON 9 THE SECTIONAL TRACK MEET One Indiana high school record was broken and another tied in the Indianapolis district track and field meet which was won by Manual at the State Fair Grounds Saturday afternoon May 19. Manual scored twenty-eight points, Atlanta nineteen, Sheridan sixteen and Technical and Shortridge each nine. Shortridge won the relay. Hull of Noblesville bettered the state record for the high jump when he cleared the bar at five feet eleven inches. Garten equaled the best time ever made in Indiana high school competition in the 120 yard hurdles when he made the distance in 16 4-5 seconds. The mark was not allowed because of the strong wind at the athlete's back. Garten, captain of the Manual squad, captured individual honors when he won four firsts. The 120 yard hurdles, the 220 yard hurdles, the running broad jump and the pole vault were all won by him. As a result of the meet Tech qualified four men for the meet at Lafayette May 26. They are Capt. Perkins, Bill Jungclaus, A. Mcllvaine and Lefty Wagner. "Perkie," who had not yet fully recovered from the measles, took third in the 100 and second in the 220 yd. dashes. Jungclaus took third in the high jump, Wagner third in the shot put, and Mac second in the low hurdles. SENIORS CELEBRATE TREE DAY The June '17 seniors held their Tree Day Exercises in the new lunch room Wednesday, May 2. Each senior brought a freshman to the exercises as his guest, and they marched by twos into the lunch room. The School Orchestra together with the Boys' and Girls' Glee Clubs furnished the music for the occasion. The first speaker was Gladys Trout, who talked about the different trees on the campus and gave a brief history of Tech's seventy-six acres. Mr. Stuart then gave a short and interesting talk pertaining to trees. Josephine Woolling followed this address with a humorous reading. Mr. William Watson Woollen, the principal speaker for the occasion was then introduced by Mr. Stuart. Mr. Woollen told about the trees in "Woollen's Garden" where anything is allowed to grow that chooses to. He also gave valuable instruction as to the planting of different trees. He presented to Technical the four trees, the Maple, the Red Bud, the Burr Oak and the Persimmon, which were planted that day Mr. Woollen has given Indianapolis "Woollen's Gardens," now com- monly known as "Buzzards' Roost." Mr. Stuart then introduced Mrs. Stuart who read a poem of her own composition in which she tolfl of the beauties of Indiana. Her's was a tribute of real poetic va ue. After this, everyone went to the Arsenal Building Where the first tree, Woollen's Maple, was planted by Mr. Woollen himself. Then Rachael Todd, the vice-president of the class, presented him with a. bouquet of white roses. The Burr Oak, Mr. Stuart's tree, was planted between the Barn and the Barracks. Near it is Mrs. Stuart's tree, the Red Bud. And the Persimmon was planted in front of the powder magazine. 10 THE ARSENAL CANNON be inlhiers nf the bail QPrize Short Story.D A military spirit hovered over the little town, or rather that part of it near John Lincoln's house. In J ohn's back-yard it seemed to be particularly in evidence. There a group of boys were gathered about alsturdy twelve-year old boy who was lecturing them somewhat as o ows: "Now, fellows, y'know my brother Dan enlisted last night an' he's goin' to iight for our country and flag. CHere John saluted the flag waving over the woodshed with a flourish-Brother Dan had just taught him how.l An' you know that we're goin' to have a big war-an'-well, I wanta help-don't you?" he appealed. "Sure we do," asserted the interested boys. "But how c'n we?" questioned little "Cy" Newton. "Well, y'know that a lot o' men 'll 'list to be soldiers an soldiers eat a awful lot an' the papers have been full of talk about raisin' gardens and things. An' about its bein' just as paterotic to work on the farms as it is to fight the Germans an' all "-John had to stop for breath and as he did so his eyes searched his small audience for signs of approval. Finding it there in abundance but mixed with a measure of questioning he continued. "So I thought maybe we c'd make a army an' raise a lot o' things to send to our soldiers!" John had struck a popular note for all boys delight in anything pertaining to an army and since these boys were no exception to the rule, they fell to planning with an unusual show of enthusiasm. "And we'll call ourselves 'Soldiers of the Soil,' " suggested Andy Jones the oldest boy. When Andy approved of any venture it was sure to succeed. The boys were perched on the benches and boxes which were ever conveniently placed in Jump's shop. CJohn was commonly known as Jump because of its apt portrayal of his character, perhaps.D Sug- gestions regarding the new idea were offered on all sides. Finally Jump said, "Well, I guess the first thing to do is to find some land that we can farm." "Say, my grandad said I could use his two-acre field over by the bridge if I wanted to," piped up little Cy. The tiny nine-year old lad was always known as "little Cy" because of his fathers unusual size. "Cy, you're a brick an' so's your grandad! Let's go an' look it over right away," proposed enthusiastic John. "I say 'Jump', wait a minute," advised soberer-minded Andy, "we'd best talk about the seeds an' what we're going to plant iirst, hadn't we?" "Sure, I'd a fergot that part of it," laughed 'Jump', "what will we plant on 'our farm'?" "Pa'll let me have a few seed potatoes, I know," contributed Harold Brown, popularly 'Hal'. "So'll mine," said John. THE ARSENAL CANNON 11 "And my uncle's got some extra pea seed that he can't use, " from Ned Robinson. " We've got more bean seed than we need," volunteered Paul Grant And, "Say," Joe Winters fairly shouted in an effort to make himself heard, "I've got some tomato plants we can set out!" Bill Smith was the last of the eight boys to speak and he said, "I know my ma'll let me have any kind o' seed from the store," whereupon "Jump" complacently remarked,"Well I guess we'd ought to have a good garden-if we only work hard enough-but that's where the soldier part comes in you know." "Now then-let's go out to 'our farm'," said Andy, and in a re- markably short time the eight "soldiers" were racing helter-skelter down the Main Street when a sudden "Halt!" brought them to a stop. It was Andy, "Say fellows," he began, "we ought to have a flag an' a drum and march like real war-soldiers. Joe, you could get your fife, too. And Cy'll bring his drum and-who'll get a Hag to carry?" "Oh, I know where there's one, " and Ned was off. Soon the three reappeared bearing the objects of their search. Andy, by right of superior age, took the command. Cy was drummer boy, Joe was fifer, and Ned, the standard bearer. Just as all had been assigned places in the line John had an inspiration and rushed off calling out, "I'll be back directly." And so he was, leading a very reluctant and much puzzled older brother by the hand as he came. Dan was instantly surrounded by a crowd of noisy boys each explaining at the top of his voice, the nature of their enterprise. With great difficulty Dan at last made out their explanations and discovered that he was in demand to act as a drill master. To this he consented since he was somewhat aware of the importance of his own position. Soon therefore the natives were much surprised to see an orderly line of boys marching down Main Street to the tune of "Star Spangled Banner. " These strange sights and sounds aroused many disturbing thoughts in the minds of several parents but when they saw Dan at the head, all fears vanished and they could only wonder what "those boys are going to do now!" That evening they weren't left in suspense very long for eight boys were so enthusiastic over the afternoon's work that they bubbled over with the story of what they were going to do. Fathers and moth- ers breathed sighs of relief and felt that vacation might not be so nerve-racking a time after all. But, as one father said, " They'll get tired of that before long and it will be something else. " The mothers said nothing but hoped that such a prophecy, no matter how probable, would not come true. The next morning the boys were up with the sun and, according to their agreement met out by the bridge. There was Dan with two of Mr. Cyrus Newton's horses ready to plow the field for them. "Hooray!" and with happy shouts of laughter the fun began. Never had those boys worked so hard and never had work been so much fun. It was surprising what a short time it took to plow the entire iield. Then what fun it was to harrow and drag the ground! 12 THE ARSENAL CANNON Usually when more than one boy was at work there wasn't any boy at all, as Cy's grandfather claimed, but this was certainly the exception to prove the rule for Dan's guiding head and hand accomplished wonders. By noon the field was ready for planting and then a troop of the hungriest boys anyone ever saw or heard of marched back to their homes. That afternoon drill master Dan decreed that "all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" and therefore he would drill them for a few hours. Never were there eight such happy boys. The afternoon passed like magic and the novelty had not worn off. Indeed at the end of a week the boys were just as enthusiastic as they had been at the beginning and the parents began to wonder if it might not be truly lasting. All was progressing smoothly when word came that Dan's company might be called out within a few days. Then indeed began troublous times for the "Soldiers of the Soil." With their drill-master gone would they be able to continue to the end? However Dan bequeathed his position to the now proficient Andy, and encouraged them to work hard to live up to the ideals adopted. The drilling became one of the most important and interesting branches of their work. The whole town was interested and aided the boys in planning for the exercises on Decoration Day and the 4th of July. Then came the startling news that Dan Lincoln was to leave for France on the fifteenth of June. The "Soldiers" began to have very mysterious secret meetings and to neglect even the drill meetings. Dan wondered many times whether his work was going to be lost after his departure. His days seem strangely empty without the lively boys ever at his heels. Nearer and nearer drew the great day and tenser and tenser became the excitement. Everyone swelled visibly with the importance of the occasion. The fifteenth dawned beautifully clear and the village was awakened with a "Boom! boom! boom!" of the cannon which was reserved for gala occasions. Everywhere Old Glory was unfurled to the breezeg the station in particular Haunted a large number of flags. Bunting decorated the platform and the cannon was stationed at the side of the station. As soon as their mothers would permit, eight radiant boys clad in wonderful new soldier suits, Cmade for the occasion by kindhearted sisters and mothersj, marched down to the Lincoln home and with a right good will cheered Dan again and again. SLu'prise was written on every line of his face when he appeared in the doorway and he gladly complied with their request to drill them once again. Then when they had shown him how perfectly they had learned their lessons they per- mitted him to return to his home. The boys then hustled off to the station and completed preparations there. When the train whistled at the crossing Dan, the hero, appeared on the scene. Cheers filled the air and just as he boarded the train the boys "capped the climax" by firing the cannon with many flour- ishes of drum and fife. The last sight of Dan left a great impression on these "Soldiers" and they resolved to be true to his teachings and to make him truly proud of them. ' CATHERINE A. CARR. THE ARSENAL CANNON 13 he Qlbarm nf the nuntains QPrize Descriptionj Have you ever been among the mountains on a clear midsummer's night when the big full moon makes everything look almost as distinct as if it were day? What a charm it is! When the day has been long and hot under the pitiless sung the blinding rays of which do not spare anything within their reach, the leaves hang listless, drooping and wiltedg the birds all afternoon are quiet. The hour between sunset and dark in the land of the mountains is the hour the camper loves. For it is in this hour that he can wander and never grow tired or gloomy. All the voices of the woods are distinct at this hourg they may be intermingled, yet the experienced one has little difficulty in dis- tinguishing from which source each comes. Finally the sun goes down, red hot and blistering to the last. Then a cow somewhere on the hill- side, concluding it is time to go home, arises and I hear a faint tinkle of her bell. This seems to cause a general awakening 5 a rabbit hops out, looking toward the red west and the birds begin to singg the top-most branches in the trees begin to move in the breezeg the western sky deepens from a dozen different colors until finally the duller tints are lost in the darkness. But it does not stay dark for any length of time, for soon the eastern sky begins to lighten as the big moon slips up over the horizon. It has the appearance of coming right out of the hills as it floats upward. I wander along a road which finally winds to the east side of the ridge where one may look over the tree tops to the distant mountains which remind me of sentinels guarding the path by which the sun will rise at dawn. The mountain silence, for this is different from the ordinary silence, is disturbed by musical little streamlets as they trickle down the mountain side bringing a message from the snow peaks above to the comrades which they shall join below. Then allied, as it were, they will gush into the main stream where they will help to Water the fertile plains of the valley below. And as I look over a little precipice, my footsteps ever being guarded by the moon which makes every stone distinct in front of my eyes, I see the shining course of Moccasin Bend, where the river forms in the shape of a shoe as it threads its way in and out among the patches of cultivated fields and woodlands. If I strain my eyes I can see the lantern of a fisherman who sitting on a bank is waiting for the river to present him with some of its occupants in the form of catfish or some other variety. I cannot help feeling inspired as I look upon this beautiful sceneg glorified still more at this particular moment by the splendor of this full round moon, by this time fairly high in the sky. A little further on the bay of hounds on the chase, which I thought I heard a moment before but was not positive, becomes clearer and I am expecting at any moment to see a fox or "coon" jump out of the thicket just in front of me. Oh! what a night for "coon" hunting. Finally the shouts of men and the baying CConzinurd on Page 60D 14 THE ARSENAL CANNON istnrp uf the urn ample CPrize Essay.J In 1520 when Magellan circumnavigated the globe he went as far as the Ladrones Islands, then to what is now known as the Philippine Islands, where he was killed in Cebu during a skirmish with the natives. When he landed at Cebu he took possession of the Philippines and named them in honor of King Phillip II of Spain. Among these islands in the province of Mindanao, there lies the second largest island inhabited by the semi-savage people called Moros. At the beginning of the Phillipine history, these people were wild and dangerous. The government of Spain tried to bring them into civilization, but their conquest was always a failure. For over three hundred years, the Spaniards labored to convert them to Christianity, but nothing except bloodshed was the result. Before the steamship came into use in the island these people were most dangerous and a great enemy of the Christians. I remember very well my grandparents telling us of the persecution of my forefathers. These Moro people, with their sampans, boats the size of a fishing smack, used to go from one Christian island to the other and capture the Christian people. Whenever resistance was offered, the savages massacred the entire population, and whenever prisoners were taken, these were treated most cruelly. The only food they could have was the crumbs from the place where the Moros ate. After the captives had been held for a Week or so they were taken to the Island of Borneo and there ex- changed for food stuff. Whenever the prisoners reached Borneo there was no hope for their liberty or escape. My grandmother told us that when the Moros were coming to the Christian cities most of the populace took refuge in the caves or some barricaded place. When the steamship was introduced into the Phillipines the Moros ceased their unwelcome expeditions. The religion of these people is Mohammedanism, similar to that of the Chinese. They have a certain day to celebrate their feast, when they put a hog's head on the table and pray to and dance around it. These people do not eat the hog's meat or food cooked with lard, or vglich salt. Nor will they touch sea turtle, which they consider sacr . Once when a Christian fisherman caught a sea turtle, one of the Moros bought it and turned it loose, for he believed the turtle was the one who carried his ancestors to safety during storms at sea. A Moro is allowed to have as many wives as he wants, providing he is a landholder and can support his families, but the poorer classes usually have one Wife and two is the limit. This class sell their children to any one wishing to buy them. Any landholder can obtain a Wife by paying money and jewels to the girl's parents. The houses are usually built along the river bank. The roofs are of cocoanut leaves and the bark of large trees. Flooring is of lath made of bamboo and laid about an inch apart.

The significance of each successive step is beyond our power to determine but we do know that they will lead out in many different directions. Those, who for some reason, will not have the opportunity of getting a college education will have to use what they have gained at Technical as the foundation of a useful and successful life. If he has taken in all that the opportunity has offered, he need not fear. Our work here in school has been to prepare us for right living, to make us capable of meeting the problems and conditions of the world at large. We sometimes over estimate the world and think of it as being a never-ending throng of business perplexities and moral temptations. In one sense, it is no more than an over-grown school where every one is his own teacher. We have the same things to overcome in the outside world as we do here in school only on a larger scale. Therefore, if we govern ourselves in the same manner that we would in school, the ways of worldly life will cause no difficulty. As our stepping stones have been laid on such a solid foundation, ideals and precepts fostered at Technical, we should feel thankful and strive to build the rest of our career just as strong as the foundation. This we can easily do if we only remember the good qualities of our school and live up to them. We all know that the history of Technical High School during the past four years has echoed far and near and we are sure that all of us wish to have it continue. As graduates from such a school, we should consider ourselves fortunate and do all that is in our power to keep the name of Tech on the top. We can do so by putting our whole heart and mind into what ever line of work we are in and do our best. In conclusion, be sure to remember that Tech- nical will remain your home and that its name will be praised .or scorned according to your actions. M. WARD. IN APPRECIATION The decorative part of any school paper either makes it or mars it. The PILGRIM from Plymouth, Indiana, said of the ARSENAL CANNON, "Your artwork is above par. The cuts are finished and the style is artistic." We feel that this compliment is just. It is in some measure com- pensation for the many hours of work our art editors gave to make their part a success and a tribute to Miss Bard who set aside an hour each day to help the editors in planning and executing their ideas. We may safely say that she has given to the CANNON, gratis, more than one hundred hours' time, equivalent to almost three weeks constant work. We are sure every reader of our paper appreciates Miss Bard's splendid supervision and the CANNON Staff is glad of this opportunity to thank her. WWCYE f2.,.g.,d-J .

All those who found it wise or possible to part with the price of a ticket said it was a "howling" success, from Marjolaine's song to the "agony scene" in the second act. In spite of Oakleigh French's statement that he was glad it was over, the cast seemed to have enjoyed the theatrical atmosphere as much as did their audience. Jack Haymakerm-hero in the eyes of gentler Techitesewas permitted to be a "dangerous character" just once, and found it such a soul-satisfying experience that he has since applied for a position as a movie villain. Vi Swain and Jo Woolling must have consulted all the authorities on Old Maid Etiquette, for they were possessed of all the ear-marks that tradition says must constitute the make-up of a conscientious spinster, and a " poor helpless widow." No one could have guessed that the French Marjolaine, who spoke that language so fluently, was just plain American, with as much knowledge of Hebrew as she had of the words she was speak- ing. Even the intermissions were filled with songs, yells and stunts. Dal Crooke and Jack Haymaker entertained the long-suffering audience with a duet, after which they led yells, giving one for each senior class, from June '15 to June '17, All of the alumni wore green caps, and each stood when his particular class yell was given. Enthusiastic June '17 seniors displayed their class colors by dropping American Beauty toy balloons from the balcony. The music contributed largely to the success of the undertaking. The orchestra, under Miss Kaltz's direction gave several well-executed selections, and the Boys Glee Club sang during the first intermission. Every senior class thinks its play is the best on record, but this one, if not superior to those preceding it, measured favorably with any like ventures of the past classes. H. L. N. 27 V -v Y, -Q .

'Tis not the time for trivial deed, 'Tis not the day for selfish aim. To sterner thoughts we give our heed, And not to things that seem to chain Our lives and hopes to bitter shame.

Captain "Perkie" was still unable to run. As a result Richmond managed to capture ten more points than Tech. The final score was 54 to 44. Robinson of Richmond won the half mile, first on the pro- gram, by a yard, and Tech was unable to overcome this lead all day, although at one time the score was 18-18. The surprise of the day came in the 100 and 220 yard dashes when C. Smith of Richmond, nosed out Harold Day, acting captain, in both events. The time for both of these events was slow and were much behind the good marks made in the preceding meet with Shelbyville. In the mile run, Tech had no man equal to the task of keeping pace with Shaffer of Richmond, and he finished a city block ahead of Mott of Tech who took second. The 440 yard dash was the closest and most exciting event of the after- noon and Harold Day, who was responsible for it, claims that he got the wrong end of the deal. Simmons of Richmond who was the winner, held a good lead until near the finish when Day made a wonderful sprint. When they crossed the tape it looked like a tie but the judges decided for Richmond. A. Mcllvaine capture first for Tech in easy fashion and C. Mcllvaine managed to take third place in the 120 yard hurdles. In the low hurdles, C. Smith of Richmond and A. Mcllvaine were having a lively struggle for first, when Al tripped on a hurdle and fell, losing his chance for victory. Galloway and Dallin, after three trials, both failed to clear the bar at 5 feet 6 inches in the high jump and were content to call it a tie. Jungclaus took third place for Tech. Galloway, in the broad jump, leaped 19 feet 1 inch and took first place from Graffis of Richmond, who refused to give up without a struggle. C. Mcllvaine was forced to concede first place in the pole vault to Grafiis, when he failed to clear the bar at 9 feet. "Lefty" Wagner heaved the shot 36 feet and captured first in the shot put and thereby ended a disastrous day for our track team. Summary: 100 yd. dash: 1-C. Smith R, 2-Day T, 3-Stevenson T.

Final Score-Richmond 54, Technical 44. askethall Our basketball team that journeyed to Martinsville this last March deserves a great deal of credit for the fine showing they made. Although the team was defeated by Martinsville in their second game they did however show a real fighting spirit in the game with Broad Ripple. This game was a closely contested one and at no time was the game "tucked" away in favor of either side. The game went five minutes overtime and by a strenuous and strong comeback the Techites were able to come out of the melee with the big end of a score. In the game with Martinsville, though our boys fought hard and stuck till the last minute, they were greatly handicapped not only by their own light weight but by the floor. The Martinsville fellows greatly outweighed the Techites and had played on the floor during the whole basketball season and this was certainly a great set back to every team that hit the purple and red team. Earl Wagner, the best guard in the sectional meet played a wonder- ful game. Tech would have certainly gone down to a severe defeat had not Earl pounced down upon many of the opposing players and literally crushed them. At no time did the Green and White guard allow his man to get away from him and many quaked when they saw him coming. Earl was named as guard on the sectional team. His playing was a pleasure to everyone and all the Techites will surely be glad to hear that he will be with us again next year. He was a disguised demon in basketball this year so we advise our opponents to give him due consideration when they try to estimate our strength for next year. Harry Brown, captain of the team, was named center on the second team for that section. Harry played a fine game at passing and had perfect floor work. His basket-shooting was accurate and counted for many of the teams points. Harry was a tall and rangy player and got the ball many times in an easy manner which would have been a hard job for a shorter fellow to tackle. This is the second year for Harry on the state team as is the same with his team mate Wagner. Brownie, we are sad to say, leaves the school this June. Just what his l l l 4 .L tr 1 ..

Francis Jones, sub center, does not appear in the picture. future plans are, we have never been able to find out but we believe from all appearances that Harry will make a study of surgery. Houston Meyer, the pigmy of the team, has just finished playing his second year on the state team. And he certainly has made a creditable showing. " Houp " is exceptionally fast on his feet and a dead shot on the basket. He had a little tough luck near the end of the league games this season. He didn't seem to catch his stride until time for the meet and everyone knows how he went to Martinsville and roughed the hair on some of the enemies' heads. Houston went fine until one of those Martinsville huskies started after him, and he---oh! well he didn't have a chance. However just wait until he grows. Bernard Lawson, our floor guard, is the only member who has played on the state team all three of its meets or tournaments. " Bunt" is certainly beyond any doubt the shiftiest man in school even to the extent of sliding the length of the Hoor for the ball. In fact he spends half of his time on the floor. Lawson's hobby was to catch the ball on the tip off from center and at that he is a star. And like the two preceeding players he leaves us in June. Houston Meyer is going to Butler while "Bunt" is thinking seriously of going to some college in the east. Hugh Shields, the other forward on the team, played a splendid game for his first year on the state team, though he lacked stability. 37 Earl Wagner, William J ungclaus, Harold Barton, Robert Stevenson, Donald Dynes, Clarence Brown, Forrest Kirby, Ethelbert Wilson, Herbert Galloway, Charles Smith, Crawford Mott, Hugo Fischer, Albert Mcllvaine, Carter Helton, Charles Mcllvaine, Carl Wolsifer, Edwin McClure, Harold Day. Standing: Mr. Anderson, coach, Mr. Cabral, coach, Earl Perkins, captain. We are mighty glad to say that Hugh is to be at Tech again next season and if he plays as well next year as he did this we pity the oppo- nents. Russell Kirshman, our substitute forward, played excellently in the league games and thereby won the right to journey with the team to the sectional meet. Forrest Nutt, the sub guard, was on the team for the second time in three years. He did not follow the game the second year. He has a way of guarding that is entirely his own, and he gets away with it. Evidently it came from Carmel because we have never seen such guarding before. The "Nutt"simply makes monkeys of his opponents. You can never tell in which direction he is going. We are certainly sorry to lose Forrest by graduation this June. Francis Jones, is what some may call the "Mysterious Techitef' He came not long ago from Racine, Wis. No one knew him but he soon made himself known. No one would have thought he could play basketball but just before the league games were over he came out to play and what a figure he made on the floor! Not very long afterwards he was made sub center on the team and got in the Hnal game for about two minutes. Just to show Martinsville how good he was, he hardly stepped on the floor when he shot a basket that never 38 grail' init' 'WML' iv X ig 1 From left to rightNMr. Gorman fcoachl, Albert Screes, Houston Meyer, George Meyer, George Broughton, George Molls, Harris Sheppard, Earl Wagner, William Ash Ccaptainp, Marshall Kim- miek, Herbert Sherman, Harry Brown, Glenn Scheiring, Mr. Spence Qcoachj. even grazed the rim. He is working hard on a farm but will get his credits. Francis would have made a fine man for next year's team. Though the entire team, with the exception of Wagner and Shields graduates this June we have a bunch that is pretty well organized and promises to even be better than this year's team. Wagner is to be shifted to floor guard while a new man by the name of Byrne will endeavor to beat Coxen out of the other guard position. Both of the latter are heavy men and either would fill the bill. Shields because of his experience will more than likely play the pivot position with Jungclaus and Drayer lighting it out for the sub position. Kimmick, one of the fastest men in the league games this last year, will play one forward position while Seidensticker, who played Hoor guard all this season, will probably play the other forward. asehall The 1917 season proved to be a successful one for the Technical baseball league and showed that our school possessed some excellent material. Approximately one hundred candidates reported when the first call for baseball was issued and these players were organized into four teams which comprised the league. At a mass meeting four captains were elected and names chosen for the teams. Wagner was chosen to lead the Red Sox, Harris, the Braves, Sherman, the White Sox, and Ash, the Giants. Messrs. Gorman, and Spence of the faculty assumed charge of the league, and Mr. Carroll was appointed coach of Tech's first state baseball squad. fCorzl1'11ura' on Pugr -HJ 39 'ffffif x T + , C, ss. as Y p . s T 5, ' Q Q- ' , mv.: L A - ,Q 5 9' v . pl ' -3, rw - , gs.. , ':1..x,,, "C A W X V 3011 J z "v' 6 .

All girls excepting the first term girls were eligible, if they presented a doctor's certificate saying they were in fit condition to stand the strenuous exercise. The game at Tech is played according to the "official Woman's Rules, " as it affords much better training in self control than does any other form of the game. For the first two months the girls at Tech worked on practice team work, studied plays and goal shooting. Then out of the thirty players Cfor by that time the number had diminished from 45 to 30 maybe because the girls began to realize that basketball was no lazy girl's gameb, two teams were chosen. Every player had an alternate. The first week in March, the end of the season, two teams, six on each team were chosen to play a monogram game, this game was played after school in the gym. Miss Frick, Miss Hankemeier, Mr. Carroll, Mr. Stoneburner, Mr. Krickenburger and Mr. McKenzie judged the monogram game. They decided that Caroline McMath, Nellie Dono- van, Katherine Armborst, Luella Agger, Gladys Bruce, Martha Upde- graff and Elizabeth Isgrigg played the kind of game to merit a mono- gram. This closed the basketball season. 40 411' 7 manner arwsmug Amtsncs UKELFLEQUU ' viufneww- P ' ' 'fm "V - l LE ' Q .sms fzlff 1 ' G l H' s V " b lil'- ,' -- . .,.....

Since a pupil's success as leader of men comes not only through scholastic achievement in the class room but also through experience gained in leadership of school activities, Technical High School not only approves of clubs and organizations for the development of special talents but our Principal encourages every legitimate plan. We now have at Tech the nucleus of an Electrical Club and a Tech -A Club besides the well founded orders of Boys' Glee Club, Girls' Glee Club, Spanish Club, Orchestra, Band, Ukelele Club, and Cabinet. Because many pupils are not aware of the existence of such organ- izations, the Staff is glad to print on the following pages a half-tone of each group, together with some idea of the principles for which each stands. BASEBALL lC'w1!1r1 im! Vrrffnz l'1l,Uw WI That the teams were evenly divided was proven by the fact that after six games had been contested, three teams were in a tie for first honors. The Red Sox, Giants, and White Sox finished the season each with two victories and one defeat. The Braves lost their leader in the first game they played and Robert Byrne was selected to act as captain for the remaining games. However this team failed to score in the winning column, and finished with three losses as their portion. From the leading players of the league the coaches selected the following twelve aspirants for state baseball honors: Kimmick, H. Brown, H. Meyer, Ash, Sheppard, G. Meyer, Moll, Broughton, Wagner Sherman, Screes, and Scheiring. On Friday, May 11 it was announced that Mr. Carroll was to leave for the Officers' Reserve Training Camp at Fort Benjamin Harrison and that Messrs. Gorman and Spence would take over Mr. Carroll's duties. William Ash, who had been playing a stellar game at second base in the league games, was the unanimous choice of his team mates for captain. Several practice games were played with scrub teams and one of especial note was staged with the faculty. This game was played on the Brookside diamond and was featured by the spectacular work of Principal M. H. Stuart, who held down the initial sack and saved the day at the bat for the faculty by scoring their only run. This year marks Tech's entry into interscholastic competition in baseball. This fact should lend interest to the game and will doubtless result in an even better season next year. A detailed write up of Tech's part in the state baseball tournament, which was held at Purdue on May 25, will be found in another section of this issue. 41 ', -,.1-'14 vi 1 . -.gg-b,?.i, ,. 3- 1 W ' ' : I Y' . v5 ' I h.

If you want to see real Tech spirit displayed, just visit the Girl's Glee Club some Wednesday afternoon. Those forty-three girls cer- tainly do possess "some pep." Their work, however, has been rather limited on account of existing difhculties. They were late in getting started. It was necessary that nearly twenty girls drop out during the first few weeks thus making the work more or less irregular. Some problems as to meet- ings were encountered. It was finally decided that they should meet every Wednesday and each alternate Friday. Notwithstanding these difficulties, our girls have made a splendid showing. They have participated in one program so far this term. The girls have studied nothing but three part music this term but it is hoped that the club will be Well enough balanced next term to sing four-part music. V. L.

Every boy of Technical High School who dreams of a successful college career and who can sing at all certainly plans to "make the Glee Club." The boy Who goes into business after high school graduation shouldn't miss that fun. So Miss Kaltz set aside Monday and alternate Friday afternoons for practice with all boys Who cared enough about Glee Club Work to stay regularly for rehearsals. Twenty-seven enthusiastic Techites enlisted and real music beganeif we are to judge from the execution of "The Bull Frog on the Bank" and such classic selections as "Out on the Deep, " " Forsaken, " and "Perri Merri Domoni. " The latest achieve- ment is their mastery of "Schubert's Serenade." Three times has the Boys' Glee Club had an opportunity to show its ability as a musical organization. They sang at the State House for the governor and school men of the state. They also sang for the seniors at Tree Day exercises. And again they offered their srevices to intertain the audience at the German House the night of Pomander Wa k. 44 ' A . fi '1"?'1'54'sm 1 ., xnia His-inf' 4 ' is fi.

Since the "Bird of Paradise" introduced to American music lovers the fascinating Hawaiian melodies and the ukelele, the popularity of that instrument has grown steadily. At the beginning of this semester a number of pleas reached Miss Kaltz for a club where such music could be practiced. So, a decree went forth that any pupil of Tech- nical who owned a ukelele was eligible and should report in 65 for organization. About fifteen responded to the call and practice began immediately. The time set for weekly meetings was Wednesday afternoon from three to four, but just any afternoon seems "to do." The music studied has been of the type that one in summer camp, or boating or at class parties would enjoy. Such selections as "Dixie" and those old southern songs and a group of Hawaiian work, "Fair Hawaii," "Aloha Oe," "A Sole Mio," and "Abi Wela" have been mastered. An interesting feature of the Ukelele Club is the admission of those who own banjos, guitars, mandolins and violins.

El Club Espanol was organized in September, 1916. The first president, Maurice Lindley, with the assistance of Miss Cunningham and a committee of members, outlined a very interesting series of programs for the meetings, including readings and short sketches of Spanish authors. Later in the semester, at a re-election made necessary by the resignation of two officers, Oscar Ries was made president and Kenneth Walling, Vice-president. At the close of the semester, the club Was entertained at the home of Gordon Zink, with the prospective members of the club as the guests of honor. The program of that afternoon was made especially enjoyable by games played in Spanish, and a talk by Miss Pretlow, who had spent a number of years in Cuba. She told how a young Cuban courted his lady-love, how he would play his mandolin beneath the grated Window of her roomg how he was introduced to her family, and how the Wedding was conducted. Need- less to say, the girls of the club were "all ears" during this recital, not entirely because it was in Spanish either. At the beginning of the second semester the following officers were elected: president, Oscar Ries, vice-president, Marjorie Allingg secre- tary, Anna Shinglerg treasurer, Margaret Shea. Having realized the possibilities for both fun and profit in such a club, the members decided to take steps to make El Club Espanol a permanent school organization and put it on such a basis that in the future it Would become one of the organizations of which Technical could be proud. A constitution 48 THE ARSENAL CANNON 49 was drawn up and during the next few meetings the club could easily have been mistaken for a legislative assembly from the sounds that floated out through the transom. For as one member put it, each part of the constitution was "cussed, discussed, and recussed." The next matter of importance was the initiation of the new members. This meeting was held in the new Lunch Room, and a number of novel stunts were executed as the initiated members can well testify. Ask Bob Brewington why he displayed his affections for one certain dark haired person with so much satisfaction and why Earl Perkins did not. One of the members wished to know why Pauline Grenwald had a liking for purple silk 'kerchiefs, and why Margaret Shea said "dear" to - Cdeleted by censorl. These things were all made known at the initiation. Aren't you sorry you weren't there? At the second meeting in May a committee was appointed to arrange a basket picnic for the last meeting in June, and from the few hints dropped by the committee, a Spanish playlet, Spanish songs and games were being planned. The last meeting of the semester is being made a social affair to which the students eligible for membership the next semester are invited. Pupils are not eligible to membership until they have begun their second semester's work in Spanish, and member- ship depends upon the student's final mark in Spanish I. All members of the faculty who have a knowledge of Spanish and pupils who are qualified to become active members, but cannot attend regular meet- ings because of employment may become honorary members. The following is a complete list of the members of El Club Espanol: HONORARY MEMBERS Mr. Stuart, Mr. Scherer, Miss Hagley, Mr. McClain, Mr. Shockley, Fred Dyer, Benito Mascasaet. ADVISERS Miss Kincaid, Mr. Cabral, director.

The speakers for Shortridge were: Tilford Orbison, Joseph McGowan and Robert Burroughs. The speakers for Technical were Robert Schmuck, Oscar Ries, and Harold Stedfeld. The contest was won by McGowan of Shortridge and thus merited the right to represent the seventh Congressional District in the state contest at Bloomington. Burroughs won second place and Schmuck third. The judges gave particular emphasis to the excellent work of Schmuck. Orbison, Stedfeld and Ries tied for fourth place. Mr. Chairman: Are there other reports to be heard? If not I await a motion for adjournment. Raymond Woods: I move we adjourn. Mr. Chairman: It has been moved that we adjourn.

Ask Bunt Lawson why he doesn't like to have his picture taken in a basketball suit. Mr. Morgan is getting gracefully slender. There's a reason. Houp Meyer insists on calling himself a son of a sea-cook. Oakleigh French has all the requisites of a movie actor-except the action. Bob Byrne has learned to say "What's-our-Spanish-lesson?" to Johanna Holmes without making her blush. Ruth Phythian carries a small edition of Robert Louis Stevenson- in her Wrist watch. The Spanish Club has been quarantined for a severe and contagious epidemic of Mustachitis, described by some physicians as being a mild form of insanity. Noble Butler was seen talking to two girls, and Cseeminglyb enjoy- ing the conversation. For pit-ee-ee sakes! Mr. Freimark is quite a favorite with Ladies Aid Societies. Miss Farman, issuing hurried directions at a Pomander Walk rehearsal, pointed to a chair and shouted excitedly at Harry Brown, "Harry, sit down on that cue!" Why does Harriet DeGolyer always hum "The Perfect Day" on Friday? Trevor Gaddis would make a good recruiting agent for a red-cross station. We know of at least three young ladies, each of whom would gladly don cap and apron if Trevor told her they were becoming. Ask Oscar Ries what he is doing in the hall outside 22 between the 7th and Sth periods and he will tell you he is chasing butterflies. 1dBita Siegmund thinks an "army corps" is a deceased German so ier. Extra! Ethelbert carried three twigs and half a brick on cleanup day, and got his hands dreadfully soiled. Ask Elizabeth Vial what her diary said about "Joe" Why did Miss Abbett tremble when she learned we were publishing a Scandal Page? Ask Pauline Grenwald if the teacher in 6th hour study hall still has the note she wrote to "Bobby." Bessie Hartley complains that no matter how carefully she draws a kewpies' face, it always looks exactly like Bob Byrne. Ednah Jacobs believes "practice makes perfect"-she's for per- fection. CSee Senior Playj. Hazel Daues wishes she were a red-cross nurse. How about the picture on the face of a Tech professor's watch? Be careful, Neal.

Max Baker, another member of the June '15 class is also attending Butler. Victor Prange, a June '16 graduate infests Butler. He contends that if he weren't there to help, the Phi Delta Theta's would never exist. Clarke Sampson is attending the Indiana Dental School. "Herb" Dux is still fighting his way through the University of Illinois. We don't hear much from Herb but we wish him the best. Tech's for him. Neal Brigham is now a " Prof " at 1 oh! what's the use? Every- one knows. Lehman Holliday is working for Zener and Stone. He is making good. He is the boss of Merrill Smith, another Techite from the class of January '17 . Upon asking "Bunt" Lawson what had become of our graduate Lorraine Free we find that she is working for the Standard Motor Car Co. We would like to ask Lorraine what she knows about cars. We also find that many of our grads are getting the coin already. Louis Heitkam is working in the Merchants National Bank. We hope Louis doesn't lose his reason over so much money. Wallace West, we have recently learned, is trying for an appoint- ment to Annapolis. Wallace takes his examination in the near future. Here's hoping he comes through with a high percent. Fay Douglas and Donald Durman are both going to Butler. It seems that Butler gets more Tech students than any other. Well as long as they can keep 'em We can supply 'em. Lois Stone like a few other Techites chose DePauw for the place to get her future learning. DePauW's a fine school. So is Lois a fine girl. Esther Wood a graduate of the January '17 class is working at L. S. Ayres. She and Mary Williams, another grad of the same class, ought to make a couple of good Workers. They did their part in school. Lucile Carson another one of our alumni is now going to the Uni- vesity of Oklahoma. Although Lucile is many miles away she may be gone but she is not forgotten. Frank Hoke is supposed to be working on his father?s farm. Whether he is doing this or just loafing at home is hard to tell. "Liz" Bader is working in the bicycle room at Tech. He accepted this position directly on the departure of his classmates. 54 THE ARSENAL CANNON Sidney Dailey, Russell Durler, Clarence Miller and Wilbur Igleman are still students of Tech. But not for long. Edward Owens, one of the best liked fellows in school, is travelling for an auto firm. We hope to see Ed do something big one of these days because he is one of that kind that always succeeds. Helen Drake, otherwise "Peg" has become a member of the Tech faculty and is assistant in the art department. Marguerite Mahoney is attending the Normal School here in Indianapolis. f Roy Magruder has left the city life and is working hard on the arm. Burl Owen and Garland Palmer have both joined the army. Burl to the signal corps and Garland entered the aviation service. Ever since the class color episode on the top of Tech we know Garland likes to be up in the air. Julia Shea has decided to be an old maid and is teaching at Indiana. Maurice Daugherty is working at the Indianapolis Light and Heat Co. He is thinking of stringing a line of lights along Pogue's Ocean so the students can fish at night. Oscar Pantzer is going to school at Milton Academy. Gertrude Alford seems to be an inmate of Tech still, that is she attends school. Ruth Burris is one of the most popular employees at Lauries. Everett Hughes is still making "pin money" from his saxophone. He is a loyal graduate and frequently returns to Tech for friendly visits. Elizabeth Scott, a grad from the class of June '16 still remains with us. She is now almost considered a member of the faculty. Jim Kenney, alias "Red" is going to Purdue. James is taking the agriculture course and seems to think that his fraternity, the Delta Tau Delta, is just about it. "Arch" Brown is going to Butler and seems to be distinguishing himself as an all round athlete. He played end on the varsity football team and sub on the varsity basketball team. Fred McDonald, well-known for his work in the senior play, is working in the grocery department at L. S. Ayres. "Shrimp" McMeans is working for the Cole Motor Car Company as time keeper in the sales department. George Schulze and "Wiennie" Fehr are working for Eli Lilly and are much interested in their jobs. Albert Daugherty, is doing a little bit of everything. Between working for his father and working on the road Al is entirely mixed up. He is undecided as to going to college. We frequently see Fred Bakemeyer driving around in a machine. gf gourse we don't know Whether or not the car is his but nevertheless e rives it. THE ARSENAL CANNON 55 Elsie Fischer seems to be doing quite well as a stenographer. She works in an office in the Law Building. Evidently Fernetta Mullen is taking a post course at Shortridge. We have reports that she is seen in that neighborhood. James Scott, still tall and stately and quiet, has a job at the main building of the Public Library. dECrJnestine Brown is working on the main floor of Charles Mayer an o. Marie O'Hara, one of our past stars, is now living in Detroit. We fear Indianapolis was too slow for her. Madeline Hayden still seems to cling to the path of learning as shei is now attending DePauw. Such a sad fate-and she was a lively gir too. Bessie Anderson is going to the Normal School here, as are many other of our graduates. Harriet Kahler has been away all winter and is now home taking the rest cure. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all graduate and then rest for a couple of years? From recent gossip we have found out that Francis Brewington is following in the tracks of Beethoven. It develops that she is studying at the College of Musical Art. Earl Wise is in the drafting department of the Link Belt Co. Lena Beever seems to be always on the move. Not long ago we heard that she was working at some music store but now she is in an office in the Kahn Building. When we checked up "Russ" Cook Cand that was some time ago? he was an agent for Saxon cars but now we "hear" that he is a man of eisure. PICTURES PURCHASED FOR 57 The pupils of Miss I-Iankemeier's roll room have purchased a beauti- ful woodland scene for 57. In the foreground of the painting is a small rivulet and a path which leads up to an old house in the distance. Miss Hankemeier's German Ia, II, IIa, IVa and VII-VIII classes not to be outdone, gave two more pictures to ornament their class room. One is a wheat field, portrayed so well that one imagines he can see it tossed back and forth by the gusts of wind. The other is a reproduc- tion of the famous painting "Wotan's Abshiedf' This picture is taken from one of Anna Alice Chapin's legendary stories. Brunnhilde who was the daughter of Wotan has done something that makes her father very angry. So he decides to put her to sleep upon a high mountain and around her to build a fire. Here she is to await a mortal who shall ride through the fire and awake her. The picture shows Wotan who is overcome by his love for her, clasping her in his arms in a last sad embrace as he is bidding her farewell. "Wotan's Abshied" is framed in circasian walnut and has been hung on the east wall. The woodland scene and the wheat Held framed in the same wood with gold insets ornament the front wall. M. H.

Mr. Carroll Cin Gym classy: Get in back of the boy in front of you. Miss Abel's Latin I class was struggling heroically with the ablative case. Abilee LaMar was gazing dreamily out the window. Growing impatient with the boy who was reciting Miss Abel exclaimed sharply, "Ablative, ablative! Use your mind. " Abilee jumped nervously and apologetically replied, " Yes'm-I was. " The slangy freshman had spent the evening at the "movies" and consequently, the next day his Latin lesson was unprepared. The teacher, who evidently surmised as much, said, "Forrest, give 'he orders' in Latin-." Then as Forrest looked blank she continued sarcastically "Were you at the show last night, Forrest?" "You bet! Ciubety," was the enthusiastic reply. d "Correct," said the teacher, thoroughly appeased. "That will o." The Manual Senior Play had so far gone off smoothly. Then a most extraordinary thing happened. Evidently Little John could not play the bugle, so a man was stationed in the wing to give the call which Qapparentlyy came from Little J ohn's instrument. Robin Hood turned to his comrade and said, "Little John, give us the bugle call." Little John raised his bugle, and just as he held it poised in mid-air, the audience was astonished to hear the shrill notes of the bugle call. Harriet DeGolyer, after an attack of Spring Fever, consulted a physician. "Doctor, " she said, "I have such a tired feeling all the time." "I-I'm," was the reply, "let me see your tongue." ."Pat" Reidy, at Roll Call one morning captured a spice cake which Melita Percival had made in cooking, and rashly devoured it. That night, upon retiring, he said: Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lord my soul to keep And if I should die before I wake. Blame it on Melita's cake. 58 THE ARSENAL CANNON rfb idalfs Imanan CWith apologies to Ben Frankling A lazy student travels so slow that D's soon overtake him. A school without Seniors is but half a school. Where a credit is wanting everything is wanting. To be intimate with a Freshman, is like going to bed with a razor. The first degree of a Senior, is to concede one's self wise, the second is to profess ity the third to despise counsel. A lean C is better than a fat D. A's will always make a card handsome, but D's will certainly make it ugly. Diligence is the mother of good marks. There are no A's Without hard Work. A B today is better than an A tomorrow. The Sophs have little, the Freshies none, the Seniors too much, enough not one. Take counsel in C's but resolve in B's. 1 Promise may get thee C's but non-performance will make them D's. Good Sense is a Thing, all need, few have, and none think they Want. You cannot pluck A's without fear of D's, Nor enjoy a fair B without fear of D's. No scholar was ever on the Honor Roll who was not laborious. Be neither silly nor cute but wise. Content makes good marks poor, Discontent makes poor marks good. When you're a Freshman hold you still, When you're a Senior strike your fill. Get what you can and what you get, hold. There are lazy Seniors as well as lazy Juniors. Neglect kills marks, Work increases them. Freshmen often mistake themselves, but seldom forget themselves. You may delay but marks will not. Silence is not always a sign of Wisdom, but Babbling is ever a Folly. Cln Physics Class.D Freshmen need advice most but wise Seniors only, are the better for it. Lessons unlearned are never learned again. Experience keeps a late study hall yet flunkies will learn in no other. Credits lost are never gained again. THE ARSENAL CANNON 59 For want of an oral comp a lesson is lost, For want of a lesson a mark is lostg For want of a mark a credit is lostg For want of a credit a senior is lost. Lessons should be short like a winter's day, Lest they grow troublesome and we hasten away. Freshmen often worry their teachers. To Teachers: To lengthen our lives shorten our lessons. Trouble springs from idlenessg toil from ease. A discontented student finds no easy chair. HISTORY OF THE MORO PEOPLE fffontinued from Page 145 families, each family having its own stove and cooking its own meals. 'lfqherge are no beds but the people sleep on a little matting spread on t e 'oor. Their method of fighting is different from that of other nations. They use the spears and long knives which we call Campelan. These are as sharp as a razor and poisonous. The Moros use shields to protect themselves from the attack of their enemies. Before going to fight, they dance around the camp fire similar to the manner of the American Indian, brandishing their murderous weapons. They are ruled by a sultan, a man of many wives and slaves, who care for him. When he goes for a walk he is attended by a body of servants and his wives. His lips are painted a bright red and his teeth black. Any person who commits a crime is punished by the sultan. He is ordered not to eat for two days and to shave his hair and eyebrows. During the two days he spends his time in sharpening his knives. When the appointed day comes he is to go out into the street and kill every person he meets until someone kills him. These people are stubborn and ever ready for a treacherous deed. I was an eye witness during the assault at night in the Barracks at Jolo where the Second United States Cavalry was stationed. In 1907 just before I left Manila an oflicer of the army took me with him to Jolo for a vacation. One night when all were asleep, the Moros crawled under the fence to the tents and attacked the soldiers before the sentinel could give the alarm. During the engagement, which did not last longer than a few hours, five soldiers were killed. The Moros will never stop iighting whatever we do for them, for they have the belief that their ancestors put a golden sleeper in the middle of the river Lanao and that as long as that sleeper remains under the water, they are never to cease fighting, but if the sleeper rises to the suface alone, then they may cease fighting. Even now since the United States has taken possession of the island and has tried to civilize these people, no way has been found to temper their savage spirit. One General of the United States Army said, "The only way we can bring these people to civilization is to kill every one of them, men, women, and children." BENITO MACCASAET. 60 THE ARSENAL CANNON THE CHARM OF THE MOUNTAINS fContinurd from Page 131 of the hounds becomes less distinct and are lost in the deep silence which prevails until again disturbed by some inhabitant of the forest who, in search of food, steps on a dry twig. As my thoughts leave the chase and turn again to nature, I wander on, caring not where I go as the little brooklet that never stops or knows of its destination. Again the silence is broken by the sudden thud of a chestnut leaving its lofty perch and starting in search of adventure. Farther on I come to another crushed stone road which shines in the moonlight. This road is lined on either side with spruce trees which send their shafts upward until it seems as if they were trying to touch the moon directly overhead. This long narrow ra- vine reminds me of one of the grand canyons of the rockies. A rabbit jumps out of a nearby bush and sits looking at me. He looks surprised and I suppose that he has never seen a human being before. But as I move toward him, he becomes frightened and scampers down the side of the ridge, and soon is lost in the darkness. These sights about which I have been talking are appreciated most when the moon is shining as it is tonight. Slowly the evening ap- proaches into midnight and the vapor begins to gather in the valley belowg the city lights disappear, the incline car, on the opposite side of the mountain, drops a third of its way and is lost in the mist. The locality to which I refer is situated in the extreme part of southern Tennessee, a place made famous by the civil war. For it was here that the "battle above the clouds" was fought and many other im- portant engagements. It is known as "Lookout" mountain and upon the word of authorities on this subject it is considered to be the most beautiful place in the south, especially at night. MARSHALL KIMMICK. lilac lane CPrize Poem.D When the work-a-day world wilts beneath the red heat, And the blinding white pathways all blister tired feet, When the tower clock drawls out noon's dusty refrain, You'll find shadows of rest-if you seek Lilac Lane. There's the faint, lulling breath of the lavender bloom, Like the breeze through drawn shades in an old-fashioned room, And the dew-freshened green, with the scent of spring rain, To charm away care-in bewitched Lilac Lane. The cool leaf-arched walk may seem only too brief, But you'll smile, at the end, with envigored belief In all men, and live on with a glad heart again, And a calm like the spirit that rules Lilac Lane.
