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

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

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
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.

In the course of perfecting coherence of action' among the
Allies, Great Britian lost her greatest military figure of
inodern times, Ifield Marshal Lord Horatio Herbert Kitch-
ener, Britsh Secretary of XYar. 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-

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
"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."

Karl XYirtz, a captain of the first Pomeranian Reserve Reg-

Yerdun. He was immediately disarmed and taken to he rear
after being searched. Among the papers found on his person
was an unfinished letter, of which I give the translation.

conducted me over the fort. From his account, in medieval

the gates of the fort. l, as a otiicer of the guard, hastened to
meet the ear. Three men got out of it and one who wore the
coveted high red collar collar of the general stat? of an of-
ficer of the Great General Stati asked for Hauptmann von
Richter. l had harely replied when l was aware of the llaupt-
mann at my elhow.
"XYhat is it?" demanded the lrlauptmann testily.
The man stepped up to him and whispered in his ear. ln-
stantly von Richter hecame abject, particularly toward the
two other men. Both wore long coats with collars turned up

that l should prepare to travel at onee. Xlihile in his room Y

OUR TRACK TEAM.
The track men of the school have had a splendid season
this year. They have lost only one dual meet. Many of last
year's men were back and training went with a spurt through-
out the whole season. First the team defeated Crawfordsville,
Anderson, and then Shortridge and Richmond. It tool-1 its
only defeat from Manual, but outclassed Broyvnsburg. Then
the schedule ended with Tech's victory over Frankfort and
Greenwood. XYith our record clear ive hoped to defeat Rush-
ville and Shelbyville but on account of the weather the meet
was called oft, leaving us only the Sectional to meet. There
our iron was tested. Nine of our men passed muster and
were admitted to the State Meet.
