HISTORY OF JUNE 19,5 XYQ, tht- blunt- '10 class uf Knights and Ladies, entered the Merry Greenwood lforest of the Arsenal Technical Sch: ols in the fall of '15, but we hfld to pass three ranks before achieving the distinction of becoming Knights and Ladies. The first year we were known as Yerdallts. We worked hard, and as the tests came up and challenged us we had many a stiff bout and there was much cracking of heads fheads of the testsl. llut do not think Qur time was always engaged in battle. Nye had our Qoorl times, one of which was our participation in the Shakespearean Xlay Day Celebration OH May Sith of the year '16, Xvhen we returned the next fall we found several changes The Shop .Xnnex had been completed and we could now rest our bones on something else besides the Well known crack between two seats, The Lunch Room was being- liuilt and later in the spring it was at last finished. lunior Year! lYe had not much further to gm, That year called forth much war activity. Red Cross work, Liberty llond and Thrift Stamp sales kept every one busy. Senior Year! Now indeed could we he dubbed Kllights and Ladies. Hur fall term was very much broken up. Soldiers had possession of our forest at first, Later a great scourge came upon us and gripped many of our members. NYe were not allowed to be together, for in this case it was better to hang separately than to hang together. Military training was one of the new features of the year. Bands would go out on skirmishing expeditions and even cap- ture a snake or two. Such wild animals as squirrels might be disturbed, but our boys were not afraid and the lashing of a squirrels tail meant nothing to them. Un December 12, of the year '13, our group of Knights Zilld Ladies held its first court. Sir George of Seidensticker was chosen president, Lady Angeline of Bates, vice-presidentg Sir Harold of Day, treasurerg Lady Dorothy of the House of lsilack, secretary. and later Sir Jean McAllister was appointed sergeant-at-arms. Now we were organized, we had brought our members together, We were well armed and were eager to go forth on any adventure which confronted us. More- over with two able advisers and counselers we could not help but win success. THE ARSENAL CANNON 23 t ln Ifriday afternoon, March 28, we Knights and Ladies held gay court. There were amusement. singing. acting, dancing and dining, 'lioo fast the hours rolled hy and we were repining llecause an end had come to our gay good time: But such is not so, for such end'll never come To us who are always so full ot iun. Ah, we love our Forest even as thou, Rohin Hood. H11 April 22, our Tree Day, we dedicated a portion of our wood to the Tech boys who had taken part in the Great War. Four of them had died and for each of these we planted a tree. lfour of our own warrior Knights planted the trees. liaeh had HI the call, girded on his armour and had ridden out to battle. Sir Ted rode out val-iantly on the Iields of Europe to light against the frightful hordes of Hunsg Sir lvan went to the Southlandsg Sir Francis went North to learn how to sail on the high seas, and Sir Harold hetoolc himself to capturing messages as they came through the air. And now they had come riding back victorious. Gay festivities ended our Senior year. How We hate TU leave our Merry Greenwoodg hut. Robin Hood, we must gil Each of us has his particular work to do.

Poet: From the party of the Lady Piantock, sir. .End boy: Your party, my good woman, is resting not four score rods from this very spot. 24 THE ARSENAL CANNON lst boy: QT., l'oetj You must have talent, coming from such a distinguished party!

I can tell you the fate of many people whom you know. First of all there flashes across my vision that fond pres:- dent, Lord George of Seidensticker. He traveled for most a year, 'tis said and is now a famous archer. Our lovable Nellie Donovan finds herself very happy in her betrothal to a worthy knight john Sterling, the born thrall of the King, has become the chief jester at the court. A most desperate outlaw of the day is Cecil Zinkan. Many times have his trickks worried the noted yoeman, Harmon Snoke. THE ARSENAL CANNON 25 Sir Floyd liults travels far and near, not for the glory but for his well being. Angeline Bates, Lady llantock of ljantock lrlall, as they do call her, is not happy in her castle. Annette Partlow is chief prioress at the l'artlow Xunnery in which a number of the class girls are nuns. Clara Lawler, having a great longing to see the world is traveling in disguise. ller real name is Ladyliolentando. Sir Dwight Mendenhall, a champion at the tournament, selected our fair Lady ,losephine Schmidt as the queen of love beauty. Francis lileinndori, archbishop of Canterbury, employs in his services Ted eampbell, chief of the butlers. The Miller twins, underlings in the archibishop's house- hold, hnd much reason, owing to their remarkable resem- blance, for tricks on the chief. Ruth Craig and .lean Hoffman have won fame in their ability to relieve the sick by the use of herbs. Helen Trent, Hertha Schotters, and lilizabeth Hudson spent their time riding their prancing steeds to and from the tournaments in various parts of the country. Charles, the magician of the day, iindeth great pleasure ill acting spells of magic over the court. Marion Breadheft and Lucille Riley furnished the music while Dorothy l1lack,'lohanna Holmes, and XX'ilhelmina Maas danced for the entertainment of the queen and her attendants. Raymond Rawitsch and lfinory llaxter, attendants of the king, were found one moonlight night serenading two ladies of nobility. The stars, however, have failed to reveal to me the identity of the ladies. l think now of an incident l heard concerning some mem- bers of the class. A right goodly number of ladies-Lady Martha Borgstede, Lady Mary lilizabeth Hanger, Lady Uoris Carr, and Lady Ruth lfmerich-were carried away by a band of robbers. Their leader was none other than the bold Edward XYoHev. The ladies never returned and we know not where to search for them, Dwight Renfrew is honored to the d6gree of being char- ioteer for his Lordship. Lady Frances Hunt is a noted costumer. She designs her Ladyship's gowns, and often in spare time patterns various modes oi hair dessing. Thelma Baker is of great use in the court where she tutors the young ladies in hne needle work. 26 THE ARSENAL CANNON Lady Grace lelarbold and Lady May Shimer have develop- ed into hunters and at the class hunt they are quite Welcome. llarold XYadswroth, e'en though a swine herd, finds some time to devote to the writing of poetry. Since so men have this ability we firmly believe thatSir XYadsworth may some day find great honor awaiting him. Harold Day, a runner for the king, can carry a message from the palace to a certain small hamlet live miles away in five minutes. Russell Screes and .I .XYalter Xvilson are pages to Harold Barton. Lorraine Kattau and Lucille Cordes fashion honnets for the queen. The great number of honnets which the queen re- quires is the means of keeping them both busy. Squires Lawrence Lang is 3 fair judge. His trials are con- ducted in the best manner possible. .2nd boy: Ye have honored us, most gracious of the fair sex. Z5 lst boy: Right well hast thou earned thy to safety to the green beyond.

In the name of the King of the Stuarts, we the renowned Seniors scholars of the great school in the Kings Court near Nottingham Town, being of sou.nd mind and memory, and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life do therefore make, ordain, publish and declare this to be our last XYill and Testament. First, we order and direct that the exchequer of the treasury pay all just debts accumulated during the last forty days as soon after our departure as conveniently may be. Second, we give, devise and bequeath unconditionally unto the coming worthy seniors scholars the major portion of our pessessions, to wit, our magnificent spirit, the grandeur ". which dazzled said nobles during the late book campaign. Third, do we, the stout of sinew and bold of heart, bequeath to the junior scholars our feeling of utter disregard for the serfs of tender years who are entering into their first year of servitude in the Hall of Learningg and to the freeman. who have had one year of combat in the lists of learning, do we bequeath our cunning, wheh we used so successfully to harass and annoy the serfs during- our early encounters. Fourth, we give to the serfs a part of the wisdom which we feel we have accumulated during our score of months of conquest for knowledge, the aforesaid to be held in trust Ulltil 28 THE ARSENAL CANNON they have reached the state of freeman, when they may use it as they choose. lfifth, does Knight George of Seidensticker, our leader and our chief. give and bequeath his bashtul manners, his favor in the Court and three fortnightly visits with the Lady "l'each" to yeoman Clarence lJ1'Z1y6l'. i Sixth, Knight lclarold Day befiueathg the 51111111 pail- of -, that is, to wit, the things with which he doth maintain the court treasury to Lord llerbert Lamb, who he avows canst use them well without further instruction. Seventh, Lady Angeline llates doth bestow upon Squire Klarien Greenspan a just share of her drainatie qualifications, with the hope, forsooth, that he wiill prove tn be as great as Lady Angeline in the next year's tournament. liighth, to those deep thinkers in the night school of astron- omy and all the other arts. doth Lady Dorothy Black be- queath that which, although she will not tell what it is, she avows will illuninate the grounds at night without the aid of torches. Ninth, we give, and bequeath to Friar HHIT5' Traylor, Prior Harold NfYadsworth's serious manne,1- and ready conimand of the court language, aforesaid qualities which he hath main- tained with, no one knows how much hardship, throughout his two-score months at court, to be used to great advantage by Friar Harry. Tenth. we bequeath to Lady Elouise Russ, the pulls of Lord Campbells height: and to Lady Jeanette Colgrove, a wee portion of Lady Mildred of Heller's dynamic nature. lileventh, Lord Louie Jackson doth bequeath the solemn expression which he doth maintain, to Sir Howard Foltz. when in sooth, said youth shall have attained the age of eight- een. Knight Harold Scheithe doth give his Heetness of foot to Sir Donald Steeg, for fain would he have Sir Donald do the kiing's bidding in right good time. Twelfth, we do bestow on Lord Richard of Murray, a pocket of Helen Creager's A's and to Lady Marie George, Lady Helen XYalsh's mode of walkingg and to lflaron S. B.

Tech has succeeded this semester from almost every point of view, Due to the short fall term, the spring months have been hard ones but the co-operation of the faculty and student body thrust the difficulties in the background, Probably a greater per cent of students have excelled in their studies this year than ever before. The gulf between the vocational and academic departments is narrowing and the decided advance made by the vocational boys has caused them to take an in' terest in school activities which before they considered out of their sphere. Te-ch's participation in athletics has been especially con- spicious and in every line, including basketball, baseball and track, have we loyally and fairly defended the school colors. The art depatment deserves special credit this term, Be- sides desiigning all the costumes used by the girls for the Supreme Day program, they decorated the Costumes worn in thc dances at the monogram game. The publicity given the school dur-ing the exhibition of the model of Greater Tech, better English Week, book Campaign athletics, Supreme Day, and various other programs has kept the Arsenal Technical Schools almost constantly before the public eye. lt is a telling test and Tech passed with her green and white banner flying viiCtOr011Sly.

The plot was a rollicking comedy. lt Wag 3 happy vehicle for the portrayal of the unusual talent of Angeline Bates who played the title role.

Lorraine Kattau and Lucille Cordes, the Misses NVetherell, were indeed typical spinisters whose hearts were full of dread lest they fail to measure up and they played their parts ex- cellently. Other members of the cast who helped straighten out the many tangles of a honeymoon in which the bride and new Lady of the llouse of liantock had to face the drliculties of having as her servants twenty-three of lier own liilismen, were: RHY- mond liawitsch, Ruth Craig, .Xnnette Partlow, XVilhelmina Maas and Emory Baxter.

Although it was illustrative of the far-spread nature of this war that this soldier whose fame had been won in South Africa should meet an inglorious death in the icy seas off the Urkeys, those who best knew the facts of the sinkiing of the Hampshire are inclined to doubt the belief of the British authorities that the K. of K., as the men in the street loved too call him in abbreviation of his earlier tiitle. Lord Kitchener of Rartoum, has met death in that way. In fact many do not believe that he has met death at all. The most realistic, the most likely story of Lord Kitch- ener is that of a prisoner of war who has recently been re- leased from a German prison camp on the Rhine frontier. The following is the Tommie's story which We are inclined to be- lieve as the true solution to the mystery of the disappearance of Lord Kitchener: "ln the early days of the war, when our own 'Little Con- temptibles' were stubbornly resisting the first vigorous on- slaughts of the Hun, Russia was organizing her forces fOr HH' attack on the eastern front in an effort toidraw the German attention from the west. Before the war it was doubted whether Russiiia's vast armies could be mobolized and brought together in one great force of destruction. This doubt, how- ever, was soon forgotten when Ilritish aid was sent. English officers were detailed to Russia to aid in the training and moving of troops. Among the last of the officers to go was our party on the Hampshire. It was on this voyage that 'the man of Iron' himself was to go to the Russian capital to consult about operations in Poland and Gaelicia. "The Hampshire slipped quietly out from the Scottish coast and proceeded on its Way. There was little Elppreliension of danger on board the ship. XYe were stealing along the west coast of Orkneys when, at a most unexpected moment the Hampshire struck a mine and began to sink rapidly, I man- aged to escape from the sinking vessel in a life-boat with three seamen. XVe kept watch all morning for any passng vessel that might pick us up. About noon one of the seamen sight- ed a raft in the distance. 1 took out my glasses which I had happened to have in my pocket when I left the Hampshire. Finding the raft, I perceived that there were two men gn it. They were both in uniform, but I could not make out their THE ARSENAL CANNON 35 rank. One was tall and presented a striking figure against the horizon as he stood erect, watching- out over the sea, "A cold feelinig came over me-I stood looking intently at the figure. lt was the first 1 had thought of Lord Kitchener since the sinking of the Hampshire. The excitement had been too great to allow one to think of others. The question came to mind-'What has happened to Lord Kitchener? Was he drowned in the icy waters of the Orkneys? XVas the tall figure on the raft that of Lord Kitchener? lf so, what would become of him? XYho could take his place, who would bring the war to a successful end? l spoke to the seamen and asked them to look at the figure on the raft. They expressed sur- prise and consternation when l told them that Lord Kitchener had been on the Hampshire. Because of the secrecy surround- ring' his g'Oil1g they had I1Ot known' he was on the vessel, "The sea was very choppy and the breakers came over the deck of our boat. drenching us to the skin. The waters of the Orkneys are not very pleasant at any time when you are out in an open boat, and, as the weather had been particularly uncomfortable of late. we found ourselves in a cold, unpleasant artic region, drenched through and weak from exposure, with no possible way to obtain assistance except by a passing steamer. These were few and far between at this time be- cause of the danger of the sneaking, stealthful U-boar which was ever lurking around to indict the cruel and terrble ven- gance of a nation gone mad in its destruction of peaceful merchant-men and citizens. The most likely vessel to pick us would be one of these assassins of the sea or some other war- ship--possibly an enemy vessel. "We exerted every effort to row over to the raft. the oc- cupants of which had seen ns by this time, but in our weakend condition we could no more reach it than, had it been the coast of Engand. By the time we had gone the first third of the way we had all taken turns at the oars and were Su nearly ex- hausted that our united efforts-had we had enough oars-- could not have taken us half so far again. "I kept a close watch on the raft and its occupants as it drifted farther and farther away from us. l especially took notice of the tall, stately figure, who I had reason to believe. was Lord Kitchener. Finally, the raft became so indistinct that she could hardly be distinguished, except at intervals. when a wave would raise her higher than usual. "Night was coming fast upon us. I watched the sun set over the horizon with dread. The situation was unbearable- watching the sun set for probably the last time in life, think- 36 THE ARSENAL CANNON ing what suffering the next :lay might bring-should I live through the night. The three sailors were in no less uneasy condition than l . Une of them, the older, who was probably about sixty-live, lost strength T31Pldlj', and l5CC211UC delirious. 'lhe poor fellow cried in his delirium, and spoke of his wife and children back in lfngland. The rest of us were silentw the old man's words had brought a new line of thought to us- the thought of home, of our dear ones, and old lfngland. "The night progressed and the wind rose. It increased alarmingly. The breakers rolled Over the side of our boat, malsing it necessary for us to be hailing water continuously. "l'he old seaman, who had been ill in the afternoon, became weaker and weaker, until, a little before sunrise, de died. XXV: buried him in the sea. " lhe morning came and with it the storm. NYe could see no more of the raft of the day before. The storm was gaining huge proportions and we were constantly in danger of being swallowed up by the waves. "XYe had all giyen up hope of rescue and were huddled un- comfortably in the bottom of the boat when we were startled by coarse voices and angry shouts, almost upon us. I jumped up and looked around me . A boat with six sailors in German uniform were coming rapidly upon us. XYould they kill us? XYould they torture us in their cruel way? Probably the same thoughts were running through my companions' minds. XYell, they were here, and we must accept whatever came. UXYQ were Soon on the German vessel, a small destroyer. After being' locked in a little damp, underwater room contain- ing one bunk and two chairs, an olhcer came to down talk to us. He was an old man and Spoke good English. He talked freely and not too unpleasantly. Ile told us frankly that the Germans had known when LOI'd Kitchener was to sail, and were prepared for him. I asked him if he thought Lord Kitch- ener could have been picked up but he refused to answer. Hliarly in the afternoon two sailors came in and took out my two companions. I never saw them afterward. "I lay awake almost all that night. Early the next morn- ing lf was attracted by sounds and voices in the next room. l went over to the wall and listened. A rough voice ealled out in Iinglish, "Heat him up a little, Bill, then he'll remem- ber". It was evident there was struggling and' much com- motion in the .next room. I searched the wall. Finding a place where I could see through, I observed a man, the man I must have seen standing on the raft, lying face down on a long table, stripped to the waist. A large furnace door was y THE ARSENAL CANNON 37 tiuii' open and a man was heating an iron poker in the lire. "The man on the table was raised up and an officer ap- proached him. His back was turned toward me but I was positive that he could be none other than Lord Kitchener. His build, his height and size all helped to confirm this im- pression. And as he turned his head slightly, I saw his must- ache-Lord Kitchener's mustache, I-IQ had iron gray hair, He sat in a defiant, fearless and military manner. Surely this was Lord Kitchener-did not the German oflicer act queerly and refuse to answer when I asked about him? Undoubtedly these I-luns were trying to get information from him and were threatening him with torture if he should refuse to give it to them. "A sailor came into my room with some food, making it necessary for me to leave the place where I was looking. After he left I hurried back to the wall. The Huns had dragged Lord Kitchener to another part of the room and were cruelly beating him. They dragged him to the f111'112lCe CIUO1' and told him he had better answer. He grimly shook his head and the Lierman with the iron rod branded him with the red hot iron. As I stood there I wondered if it were possible that there could be any limits to the cruelty of these 111611. "The Germans left the room. Fearing that they would come into the room where I was confined and discover that I had been watching them, I hurried over to the plate of food the sailor had left me and began to eat. The next time I went to the wall the room was empty. "Presently the whistle on the boat blew and two men came into my room. They bound 111e hand and foot and carried 1116 up on deck. XYe were in Germany! I was taken out of the vessel and put on a truck with a number of wounded 2111Cl half-starved prisoners of war, mostly B6lg'ia11s. I was tak611 to a prison camp on the Rhine frontier and thence to 21 dun- geon in an old castle which was used for military purposes during the war. --My dungegn was 3 5111311 eell ir, under the structure. It was stone on three Sides and the fourth was only of timbers, hastily put up, diving the prison into a number of cells. NOU1- ing out of the ordinary happened for about three days. Then. there was 3 great deal of moving about in the next room of the dungeon. Looking through the board P2lFtitiO11, I SHW some workmen. They were dividing the small cells again into halves to accommodate other prisoners, I learned after- ward that only those prisoners from whom they hoped to obtain information were confined in this castle. 38 THE ARSENAL CANNON "That evening I was moved into ont- of these smaller cells and the one in which I had been was also divided. "The next day three more prisoners were brought into the dungeon. Une was confined in the room next to mine, but 1 could not see him plainly becausq of the darkness. We were told that we would be interviewed by officers the next morn- ing. This brought back the thought of Lord KitCl1eI16l', aI1Cl the affair on the destroyer. I shuddered at the memory and spent an uneasy night. "The following day the ollicers came. First they visited was the cell next to my own. l saw three of5Cers high in COIN- mand, and not three feet from we with his back turned was the tall man I had seen on the raft and in the destroyer. He was questioned, but on finding that they could not make him tell anything of value, the officers became angry. "They drew back to a corner of the cell and conferred in an undertone. Then one of them stepped forward and said, in a loud voice, presumably to frighten the other prisoners, 'It is the will of our exalted Emperor and esteemed Monarch that those persons-however high in position-that refuse to obey his command, and defy his unquestionable power and sov- ereignty should die a death unsurpassed by any in its horror and terrible suffering. .lust as God has prepared a terrible death for those who disobey Him, and everlasting life for his faithful servants-the Kaiser endeavors to establish a g0V- ermnent in the world of peace and prosperity for those who obey and serve him and a frightful death for those who re- fuse to do his will. You, Kitchener of England, are Condemned to die 3' "After the officer had said this, he ordered Lord Kitchener taken to the place of execution. XYhatever this place may have been. whatever Lord KitCl1Gl1er may have suffered, we may nver know: but this we do know, Lord Kitchener of Khartoum, I2ng'land's man of iron, died a martyr for Eng- land, for the cause of liberty, for the whole world."
