It seems that the Republican-Democratic fight for governership this year is unusually severe. Both parties have launched their best in hope of win- ning the coming election. Yale Raymond, a prominent lawyer of this city, is the Republican nominee. Zenda Bertram, who has won renown as a Social worker, is the equally strong Democratic nominee. The desire of these two candidates for otlice holding began with their race for President and Vice-President respectively of the June ,ZI class of Technical High School. Both nominees are planning an extensive tour of the state as a close election is certain. Which will have your vote? New Method to Qlell Uprising New York City, June 7: lV1iss Laura Leedle has received a message by mental telegraphy summoning her and her co-worker, Miss Margaret Brockman, to quell an uprising in Central Africa. The Congo Tribes have rebelled against their chiefs who are endeavoring to keep them in the chains of ignorance and superstition. That these two eminent psychologists will effect a peaceful compromise between the two factions is undoubted, for by their wonderful psychological powers they have broken several nation-wide strikes which have threatened this country with most dire calamity. New Bill Before Senate. Washington, June 6: The Bill of Senator Louise Kline was placed before the Senate today. Senator Kline purposes to make it a serious misdemeanor for men to congregate on the streets in crowds of more than three. 00000 Explosion Proves Costly Nashville, Ind. June 7: An explosion in the laboratory at the summer home of Professor August Aldag destroyed chemicals which can be replaced only with great difficulty. Pro- fessor was working upon an experiment which if successful, would have been of great value. Page Eighteen Qtbe Zlrsznal Clllannun Household Dummy Invented San Francisco, Cal. June 7: Paul Hodges, the noted scientist, has recently completed an invention ofa household dummy. The dummy is run by electricity and will do all kinds of housework, thereby taking a great load from the shoulders of the weary house-husband. Mr. Hodges can testify to the Dumrny's efliciency since he has thoroughly tested it out in his own home. 00000 Relief For Mars According to a wire received by Donald Rose, president of the Relief Club, Dr. Esther Luebking of the American Committee for Mars Famine Fund will be in this city to- morrow to confer with Ex-Senators Josephine Day and Louise Shallenberger who are planning to go to Mars to aid in the relief work. Mr. Rose has planned to hold a mass meeting for interested citizens in the large amphitheatre on the Technical campus. 00000 Drug Store Robbcd Loss Estimated at 3400 An early morning robbery in the G. and J. Callahan Pharmacy was reported to detec- tives Jack Jones and Herman Lieber by George Callahan, manager of the store. Entrance was gained thru an adjoining law office which belongs to Dan Alig. 00000 Wins Medal Russell Bray, a chicken fancier, residing north of the city, was today displaying a new medal won at the United States Fancieris Association. He deals entirely with the new brown Plymouth Rocks and has a model chicken farm. He takes great pride in the place, and was overheard to say, "The reason I don't marry is that I could not bear to see a woman messin' with my chickens." 00000 Scores Attitude Toward Plays There is too much discussion concerning the psychology of the Shakesperean plays, according to Gerrit Bates, the Shakesperean star, who with Hal Griggs, was honor guest at a luncheon given yesterday by Hughes Up- degraph, president of the Indianapolis Drama League, at the New Central Hotel. "Shake- spere wrote the plays to be acted and to give entertainment, exactly as does Anna C. Gard- ner, our modern playwright," said Mr. Bates. Wins Fame Karl Fischer, with the help of his competent business manager, Paul Sheldon, has won fame as a cartoonist, and is deluged with requests to lecture and entertain. He is the creator of the popular Archie Cbaldb James, the original of which is James Tipton. This humorous character resembles, in many respects, the Roger Bean of Chic Jackson, with whom the readers of the Indianapolis Star were familiar some years ago. 00000 A Second Riley Kokomo, Ind. June 7: We have often wondered who would succeed our beloved Hoosier poet, James Whitcomb Riley, in immortalizing the dear .familiar home scenes. Some here believe his successor to be Hazel Meier who first appeared in this light as a senior in high school. The Neal Carter Publishing Company has recently published a volume of Miss Meier's verse. Every true Hoosier will delight in reading these poems, especially those which sing of the beauty of the Tech campus and of the pioneer days of the great school. 00000 Dentist Injured Dr. hflyron Hopper, known thruout the central states as a dentist, was slightly in- jured yesterday while pulling the teeth of a horse. Dr. Hopper told Miss Marjory Burton, representative of the News, that he had un- derestimated the quantity of cocaine necessary to use on a horse. 00000 Hoosier Actor Dick IfVatson is playing to packed houses in Europe. As a young man, he started in the lumber business but the lure of the footlights was too much for him. He first traveled with Barnum and Baileyis Circus where he rapidly rose to dizzy heights. For some seasons he played with Fred Stone. He realized that comedy was his line and developed this until now he is called the "funniest man on earth." 00000 Appointed Secretary cf Peace Washington, D. C. June 7: Under the new administration, Miss Sabra Lewis has been appointed Secretary of Peace. Since the women have gained control of affairs in Washington the Department of Peace has been established to take the place of the former Department of War. The Qrsenal Qtannun Page Nineteen Crowds View Parade Air Traffic Blocked All air traffic stopped, this morning, to gaze at the parade of fashion models from Cedrick's Fashion Shop. The long line of beautiful models was led by the Misses Luise Harris and Dorothea Reissner. The wonderful display of the latest fashions attracted such dense crowds that the chief of police of the aerial service was forced to call for aid. 00000 Enlarge Designing Establishment In response to the increasing demands of her patrons Miss Naomi Daugherty has en- larged her designing establishment which now rivals those of Paris. Indianapolis no longer finds it necessary to send buyers to New York in search of gowns. Other partners in the firm are Marjory Spencer, Clarence Cochran, and Marshall Dafoe. 00000 Begins New Duties Mr. William Shreve, newly appointed man- ager of the News Circulation Department, undertakes his new duties Wednesday morning, June 8, when he meets all station managers at his office. Mr. Shreve has been connected with the News since his graduation from Tech- nical High School in June, 1921. 00000 Mayor Makes Appointments Former Techonians Named Evansville, Ind. April 7: Mayor Howard Foltz made known today the following appoint- ments: Julian Davis, librarian, and Frances Yorn, assistant, Louise Padou and Emily Beigler, Captains in the Evansville Air Police Force. 00000 In a Personal Way Miss Esther Lipsey has returned from the East where she has been speaking in defense of more rights for women. Charlie Sargent drove to the city, yesterday, in his new airplane, to pay his delinquent taxes. Mr. Hugh Thomson, a well known artist of New York City, will address the members of the Art Association. During his stay in the city he will be the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Howard White, 9753 Central Ave. Mrs. R. E. Caylor CMiriam Elleryj was un- animously elected president ofthe State Federa- tion of Women's Clubs. Mrs. Caylor has been prominent in club circles for a number of years and will render valuable service in this position.

Frances Brown Page Twenty The Qrsenal Gannon iiaisturp In September, 1917, the members of this graduating class entered the gates of Arsenal Technical High School, and trod, for the first time, its paths which led us thru the beautiful campus to the brand new Annex where we reported for duty. We immediately felt the military atmosp- here that has always, since the days of the old Government Arsenal, lingered about our school, and which had been intensified that year by echoes of the war across the sea. We early caught the Tech spirit of co-operation and felt that we were "doing our bit" in the Great War when the various roll rooms adopted and supported four French orphans. We also held exciting campaigns and races to sell War Saving Stamps. The most important event of the year was the dedication of the Service Flag which at that time had thirty stars. The winter swiftly passed and with the coming of spring all the beauties of the campus were revealed. Our love for Technical and our loyalty to it increased each day. With the Spring term came the first clean-up day, forty- five minutes of snakes, hysterics, and hard laborC?D. The next event was the establish- ment of Arbor Day by the Senior Class, a custom that has continued thru the following years. Each senior invited a freshman as his guest. Two members of our class attended, Margaret Markey and Martin lVlcCracken. The patriotic spirit, aroused by the War, demonstrated itself at Technical when, on April 16, 1918,the Arsenal Reserves were formed May 2, 1918. Superme Day, the annivers- ary of the day when the Supreme Court de- cided to make Technical a permanent school, was celebrated with dances, a pageant, and drills. Those members of our class who partici- pated in the first Supreme Day celebration were Alice Haville, Helen Wiebke, Lois Booth, Laura Leedle, June Hefner, Margaret Brock- man, Howard Laughner, Margaret Markey, Julia Becherer, Katherine Hurlbert, Frances Leiter, Frances Brown, Dorothy Martin, and Helen Elrod. After what seemed a brief vacation, we again gathered at Technical. Great enthusiasm among the boys was displayed when Captain Hardin formed the High School Cadets. All the boys who were at Tech during the fall semester of 1918 were members of this organi- zation. The spring semester of 1919 was crowded with events. First, our band stepped into prominence when it led the parade in honor of Rear Admiral Sims and Secretary of the Treas- ury, Carter Glass. The Welcome Home, an open house day for alumni, parents, and friends was well attended. Then, after a postpone- ment due to inclement weather, the second Supreme Day was celebrated. The following members of the class participated in that event, Lester Koelling, Margaret Van Ness, Julia Becherer, Margaret Markey, Howard Laughner, Margaret Brockman, June Hefner, Laura Leedle, Lois Booth, Alice Haville, Helen Wiebke, Anna Conway, Louise Padou, Mar- jorie Oakes, Marjorie Burton, James Bradford, Ethel Schwegman, and Sherman Jones. During the summer vacation some of the boys of the class attended the first sum- mer camp at Camp Custer, Michigan. John Moore, George Scott, Hughes Updegraff, Donald Steeg, and Howard Foltz of our class reported a successful summer camp. Upon our return in September, we found that the Government had accepted our Cadet Corps as a R. O. T. C. unit. All those who had pre- vious military training were given a chance to become oHicers. One of the interesting events of this term was the Auditorium at Tomlin- son Hall. Our school had become so large that it was impossible to hold such a meeting at Technical. Members of our class, prominent in that celebration, were Raymond Beard, Richard Call, Dee Pell, Roy Hert, Yale Ray- mond, Arnold Schultz, George Scott, Harold Mabee, John Moore, Katherine Gould, Hughes Updegrafl, and Margaret lvfarkey. During the spring term of 1920 we leaped into state-wide prominence by Winning first place in baseball, sectional basketball honors, first place in inter-high golf tourney, and by carrying ofi the banner given by the Rotary club for the highest per cent in the Music Memory Contest. On that basketball team was one of our class members, Hal Griggs. When June came, with its roses and fine weather the first step toward Greater Tech was started, the laying of the cornerstone of the new build- ing. Before that ceremony the R. O. T. C. gave a parade. As a final triumph for so succesS- ful a semester, the pageant, showing the history of the school from the time of the Indians, was presented by the students of Technical. Our class was well represented by Charles Noble, Richard Call, George Smith, Helen Wiebke, Arnold Schultz, Bruce Sillery, Martin McCracken, Richard Smith, Hazel .Meier, August Aldag, George Callahan, Dorothea Reisner, Roy Hert, Howard White, Lois Booth, Tom Omelvena, Harold Mabee, Karl Fischer, The Qtsenal Qiarmon Page Twenty-one Curryer McCandless, Leona Skaggs, and Mar- garet Van Ness. Soon after the pageant came the close of school for most of the students, however, another training camp was held at Camp Custer Where we found Lester Koelling, Charles Noble, Dick Watson, John Callahan, Bruce Sillery, Hughes Updegrafi, Richard Smith, John Moore, Tom Omelvena, Harold Mabee, Yale Ray- mond, Clinton Wilkerson, Forrest Drake, Edward Ford, George Scott and Sherman Jones, When we returned to school again in the fall, we realized that we were Seniors. Foot- ball again visited the city after an absence of twelve years, and left Tech, as she always is, on the top. ln order to accept the cup ofiered by the School Board a parade was held. The line of march was from Technical to the Monu- ment where Mr. Stuart received the cup. That team included four members of our classg Maurice Sweeney, Hal Griggs, Dick Watson, and Paul Hodges. Another import- ant event of the semester was the organization of the senior class. Our first meeting for this purpose was held on December 8, 1920. All seniors who expected to have thirty-two cred- its by June were eligible to attend and vote. Samuel Ashby, president of the january class presided at this meeting until Yale Raymond, our president, was elected. The other ofiicers of the class chosen at this meeting, Zenda Bert- ram, vice-president, Hazel Meier, secretary, Paul Hodges, sergeant-at-arms, and Hal Griggs, treasurer. The class colors, Yale blue and orange, the motto "Not at the top, but climb- ing," and the fiowers, sunburst roses and lark- spur, were selected later thru the roll rooms. This ended the activities of the class until the following March. Our last semester started most auspiciously when the Tech team again won Sectional Basketball honors. Two members of the team were also members of our class, Hughes Updegraff and Hal Griggs. During the first days of March four new officers were elected: Gerritt Bates, Will Maker, Margaret Markey and Clifton Hirschman, Prophets, and Karl Fisrher, Historian. As the result of a com- petitive contest, Frances Brown was chosen class Song Writer and Russell Bray, class Poet. The selection of pins, rings, pictures, and inviraions was left to various committees. '1 he class play, "The Royal Family," was given at the M urat, Asril 20, 1921, with noted success. The leading roles were taken by Yale Raymond, Zenda Bertram, Mayme Clark and Shideler Harpe. We have traced the history of this class thru its brief career at Technical High School, and now that our work here is completed, the Book of History closes. We are to leave by those gates thru which we entered, and to go in many directions to begin new careers. Our history as a class is ended. Karl Wood Fischer ooeoo last will ani: Zlliestament In the name of the honorable members of the most illustrious class of June 1921, this manu- script is hereby respectfully submitted as the last will and testament.

Ballard Waddy is entrusted with Morris SWeeney's seat on the first fioor-from-the-roof at Keith'sg also, his wonderful "milling" ability demonstrated so cleverly at the Senior party. Forrest Drake, Joe Meninch, and Florence Pringle cheerfully give to all needy candidates a liberalsupply of second-hand A's and A-I-'s. To Edith Ambuhl, Raye Greatbatch leaves her bashfulness and very reserved manners. Howard White bequeaths to Nathan Pritz his great business ability and marksmanship, and Clifton Hirschman leaves to Merle Scott his expostulating ability and official dignity. Eloise Shick gracefully bestows her lightness of foot on Mildred Martin, and to Annette Van Sickle she leaves her classical coiffure. Louise Duncan wills to Anne Kerr a date book, used but not quite filled, and a bottle of perfume labelled "Catch 'em or -". Ted Schaefer leaves to Charles Riddle a set of law books which are very helpful in extricat- ing the owner from legal difficulties.

Lastly, the class does herewith make, const- itute, and appoint Mr. Stuart to be executor of its last will and testament. In witness whereof, I have hereto subscribed my Name and affixed the seal of the class upon this seventh day of June, 1921. ' Signed Gerritt M. Bates. 000490 The Royal Family. R- ip Roaring. O- ld?

And if the rugged road of life doth wind 'round The mountain side, where heavy clouds hang low, We pause not, nor turn for backward glance, But onward press, improving our every chance, The prize is not for him who falters by the Way. And each succeeding forward step Brings nearer that glad day When every burden o'ercome and every fear o'erthrown We stand upon the pinacle, Master of our own. The peaks of only highest mountains rise Above the clouds to bluest skies, So we, to win ambition's goal, so dimly seen today, Must onward climb o'er the long and un- known way. Russell Bray 00000 Studious Energetic Natural Important Original Resourceful Sensible Not At The Top, But Climbing Not at the top, but climbing To ideals, that beckon afar As gleaming bright and twinkling As an unattainable star. They give a glimpse, a mirage, Of an Eldorado fair: But as I climb, they also climb, Higher and higher in the air. But scattered along the pathway Are milestones, rough and gray, That show where my ideals rested In some forgotten day. For it seems when I was younger My thoughts were not so high And hadl not grown older These places would satisfy. But ever onward and upward, My footsteps, now rapid, now slow, Not at the top, but climbing Toward Eldorado, they go. Hazel Meier 00000 The Tech Senior '21 Class must be handed a hearty congratulation from every one who witnessed "The Royal Family." The play besides being spectacular throughout was a play which professional'actOrs could not have performed better. The wonderful costumes, along with the beautiful scenery were most pleasing to the ever watching eyes of the audience. Miss Mayme Clark has surely won, at Tech and throughout the city, a name as a clever actress. Paul Hodges acted on the stage as if it were his home for life. Paul's actions on the school campus would not suggest that he was a Cardinal, but Paul on the stage is not the Paul of the Tech campus. 00000 Independence There is a part of you that is distinctly sc- parate from all other influences, and from everybody else-it is independence. It is not that false pride which chills the at- mosphere and creates antagonism in others, but it is the consciousness of what you are-what you can do alone. It is the touch you add to your experience that stamps your achievements as your own. No man does anything that is worth while unless he appreciates himself. The independent man stands out, dominates his task and makes himself and his work majestic. -Exchange Lil' J if--f xl' ' ' .gf xf 1' W ' f' 4-.W X ,l- L sl I n ,f dl! 11- 'J me'1 M-.f-Q ffib, :AGB Q SCSI-ICICI.. , CTIVITIES UN H 4 - u QP - rl 5 uhm y A f "' ' U WW'- I II ' l I -ZFQ F ' :x i qgqtf i, ,. f my ' L 'f .i!m4' -W ' , W Q 4 - , f Eg fnyfo Liv'-N 1 Q W I Q91 0 Q L Q Q ma ,Lf lik e 4 f WM.

Page Twenty-six gibe Qrsenal Qlatmun The Nature Study Club Talk about your various and sundry clubs! Not one of them can beat the Nature Study Club of the Arsenal Technical Schools. Its purpose is a noble one, that of furthering ap- preciation and knowledge of the wonders and beauties of nature, everywhere. And, the club has done and is doing, a great deal toward that end. The club has held meetings every Wednesday at three o'clock in Room 60. Before the meetings, all who have been free and have wished to do so have hiked with Mr. Cox and his field glasses, his inseparable companion, over the campus, identifying trees, flowers, and birds. Then at the meetings reports of these and other birds and flowers have been made and discussed. There isa regular constitution, executive com- mittee and everything else that makes up a per- fect organization, even including a program committee, which arranges a program every week, and outside social affairs. Looked at from every corner and direction, it's surely a good club, and we're sure it has the hearty co-opera- tion of every student and teacher at Tech. 00000 The Boys' Glee Club Morrison Davis, President Dudley Kemper, Secretary and Treasurer. Myron Hopper, Librarian The Boys' Glee Club has been working on four-part choruses for male voices. The songs have been committed to memory so when the boys are called upon to sing they don't have as an excuse that old chestnut, "I haven't got my musicn. While they have not appeared in public, nevertheless they have been doing consis- tent rehearsing. Probably the best songs in their repertoire are: "The Lumberman's Camp Song" by Targettg 'fCarry Me Back to old Virginia," by Blandg "United States My Glorious Land," by Targett, "The Mosquito," a comic encore by Loomis. The membership is made up of the follow- ing boys: First Tenors: Russel Smith, James Peb- worth, Second Tenors: Ed. Goumer, Myron Hopper, Glenn Spinney, Martin Mc Crackeng Baritonesi Morrison Davis, Irwin Egan, Clifton Hirshman, Russel Hirshman, Ferdinand Meh- rlich, Adrian Pierce. Bass: Caroll Bonnell, Dudley Kemper, Gaudy Sunderland. Miss Louise Spillman is the club accompanist. Courtesy Campaign Last March our enterprising salesmanship classes made an offer to the Tech student body as a whole. They, in their capacity of sales- men, asked the rest of the student body to pur- chase an idea-which, if purchased, would be a tremendous asset to the school. That which they offered was just courtesy-just plain, common politeness, which is the outward mani- festation of a generous and thoughtful spirit. 'fHave you good feeling? Are you consider- ate of others? lf you do have this spirit of consideration you are helping to promote happiness in our school and in the world," they said. "What is the price?" the students asked. Forgetting of self, we learned. The divi- dends are respect, success, friendship, and es- teem. The Drive ended March 25, but its spirit has remained. The spirit of Tech has been lifted and bettered more than we can immediately appreciate. Adapted from Office Bulletin eeooe The Faculty Medals Tech's faculty, this last year, has taken an action quite worthy of Tech. After discussions at various faculty meetings they raised nearly two hundred dollars among them. This money has been invested in a first mortgage at 692, and with the interest which accrues-approxi- mately ten dollars a year-the faculty proposes to buy two medals. These medals will be presented each June to the boy and girl from the entire January and June classes combined, making the best scholarship record, that is, with the highest number of honor points result- ing from the term end grades received dur- ing their high school career. These medals are the honors awarded to the best scholars just as the Dyer medal is award- ed to the best all around student participating in athletics and the block T's to Tech's finest sporstmen. eeooo The Betrothal Festival During each school year Techonians are giv- en the privilege of witnessing exceptional dem- onstrations of the ability of the gym classes. On January the thirteenth, at the Woodruff Club, Miss Abbett staged a most effective fantasy, The Betrothai Festival. ' From the stage settings and costumes to the dancers, everything was in perfect keeping and highly commendable. The only regret is that the entire school did not have the oppor- tunity to see it. The QtB'2IIEll 081111011 Page Twenty-seven Girls' Glee Club The Girls, Glee Club has represented our school on three different occasions this last term. They sang for the Hoover Relief Fund at Roberts Park M. E. Church, and at Short- ridge High School at the Band Concert given by the three high schools. They also gave "Rapture of Spring", a can- tata, at a twilight program given on our own out door stage. This organization has Worked earnestly and has displayed unusual loyalty and enthusiasm as me mbers of this club. A uniform dress-a white middy and skirt, white shoes and black middy ties-to be worn at all public performances, was adopted. Miss Kaltz, their energetic director, states that she has enjoyed this organization very much this last semester. The oflicers of the Girls' Glee Club are: President, Mayme Clark, Vice President, june HefnergSecretary, Frances BrockwaygTreasurer, Emma Hurst, Sergeant-at-Arms, Louise Dun- can, Librarian, Irene Olsen, Accompanist, Gertrude Free. The Campus Choir Several new organizations, such as the Opera Club, the Drum Corps, and the Choral Club, have appeared in the music department this year, but it was left to the Campus Choir to form an organization that is different. The membership has been obtained entirely from the Opera Club and the object has been to keep the members of the latter together, and to do special work along choral lines. The music they sing is in strictly choral style and consists of excerpts from non-opera choruses and selections from standard operas which the choir sings and acts out Without scenery and special costumes. The Campus Choir has a versatile member- ship, containing vocal soloists, a pianist, a mixed quartette, a double mixed quartette, and some performers on stringed instruments. In fact it is ready to give a complete evening's entertainment. It appears at Commencement this spring. While it has not appeared in pub- lic many times its members have obtained a great deal of enjoyment from the new venture. The Betrothal Festival Page Twenty-eight 015132 Zlrsenal Qfannnn Tech's Band During the past semester the band at Tech has progressed rapidly. Most high school bands are shy on bass and baritone, because boys buy a clarinet or cornet, but the bass section was unusually good this year, The School Board supported the band very Well, and its purch- ase of a number of instruments insured a better balanced instrumentation. The band organized and practiced in such a way that it was able to play on parade or at concert any moment. Its work at the games was heartily appreciated by the rooters. The band next year will continue its program of playing in public and it will welcome many new members. Those who desire to be in this organization should mention it on their study slips so that the office can arrange their sche- dule. ooeeo january Senior News During the past semester the january 722 class carried on a scholarship contest between the three roll rooms, 65A, 6513, and 65C to boost the scholarship standard. The contest was based on the average number of honor points in each roll room, all the contestants wore a badge designating their respective roll rooms, 65A's being designed by Russel Stewart, 65B's by Helen Ludemann and 65C's by George Patong The three little air-planes-the work- manship of Russel Stewart- hanging on their wires in 65 marked the progress of the campaign in which everyone was interested and in which competition was unusually keen. QQQQQ The Opera Club Mr. Percival has received so many inquiries about joining the Opera Club, that he Wishes to take this means of informing all who are interested. There will be a try-out for membership, one day only, some day of the first week next September. All who are interested should watch the bulletin for a more definite announce- ment, as it is quite likely that the membership will be filled at the first try-out. The opera to be given will be the "Princess Bonnie," or "The Maid and the Middyf' It will be given in the Murat Theater the first week in December, with special scenery and costumes, and accompanied by selected mem- bers of the orchestra. As the Opera Club is now an established organization, we may look for a brilliant performance. Drum Corps Twenty-two boys, twenty-one of them novi- ces, enrolled at the beginning of the semester, in the Tech Drum Corps. 'lhey began to re- hearse immediately, under Mr. Percival, at the sixth period, Mondays and Fridays. During the term they have learned to beat the drum and toot the bugle, and have com- mitted to memory two marches, "Paris," and '4Kansas.H While their repertoire is not so very large, at the same time they have advanced enough in the work to be able to appear on parade. It is guaranteed that they can make as much noise as any drum corps of the same size. The members not only appear in a body, but play in the different periods to assist the cadets to march- The Drum Corps is a useful organization be- cause its music is military, and lills a long felt want in military maneuvers. 004960- The Tech Cglartette That burst of harmony in the second act of the Senior play was accomplished by the Tech quartette composed of Parker Burns, Kenneth Thorne, Arnold Schultz, and Yale Raymond. These boys,under the capable leader- ship of Miss Kaltz have done much to elevate Tech on the musical side. The quartette was organized in September and sang a number of selections during auditorium and especially in " Pinaforef' This semester they have devoted a great deal of their time to singing in outside localities. Recently the quartette went to Acton, Indiana, to sing for the high school play, and left a gooi impression of Tech talent. We wish them hearty prospects for the future. +0044 The Vocal Culture Class Many of the larger high schools of the country have added and are organizing classes in voice culture. The purpose is to develop talent along special lines in voice work. It is an aid in doing this just as the glee club is an aid in discovering talent. Mr. Percival has started one here at Tech, and it would be wise for all pupils who are in- terested to bear it in mind when they fill out their study slips. It is a half credit subject. At the national convention of music supervis- ors, held in Saint joseph, Missouri, last April, the subject of voice culture was given quite a little attention and Tech was recognized as one of the larger schools having this in the curri- culum. , 1' Ax A ,fu " The Drum Corps 5 x The Noted Band .f , ' 1 e -y-- A-I-I We W - Y e " 'e o ,ef V' 7' 'P ee Q. . e'v"1v7' H17 ,.

It is a self-govern- ing organization using Roberts, Rules of Order for its guide. The director has the power of ratification and veto. The officers elected were Carroll Bonnell, president, Anna Boles, vice- president, Gertrude Free, secretary, John Berry, sergeant-at-arms, lVIildred Goens, libra- rian. The Woodruff Club was made the head- quarters for all rehearsals all this semester. Business meetings were held every Thursday. At one of the meetings an interesting bit of legislation was enacted. It consisted of the adoption of a pin, the design of which affords space for the indication of the number of semesters a student has been a member. An inexpensive pearl is inserted for each semester of his membership. Carroll Bonnell, a post- graduate, is entitled to the most pearls, since he has been a member ever since he was a freshman. The members of the orchestra are among Techis most loyal students. They are very de- pendable. Not one member has failed to at- tend a public performance given by the orches- tra. Such loyalty and fine school spirit cannot be surpassed. Think of the comfort and joy such a dependable group must be to its director. This year all the music at the Class Play, the Arbor Day exercises, and Class Day exercises was furnished by the orchestra. A splash of ceremony was added to commencement by the appropriate overture and the stately pro- cessional march which the orchestra contributed othet program.

I got an idea right off. I'd just find out some- thing about this Wireless Club 1'd heard about. I went up the fire escape and into a room filled with a group of busy boys. 1 was politely directed to Mr. Marcus. "Can you give me a little news about the Wireless Club, Mr. Marcus F" 1 inquired. "1 can tell you all about it in four letters," he said, "D-e-a-d." Of course 1 was surprised, but he went on to explain how it happened. The club could not meet until after the school schedule ended, then the night school interfered with the activities. Boys who would like to have joined the club oftentimes had schedules which ended several periods earlier than the time for meeting and of course, they did not care to wait over so long. Mr. Marcus added that although the boys in the course were very interested in wireless it could not be given them in the school. He favors the idea that students have wireless stations at their own homes but as a school activity a Wireless Club is highly undesirable. 00000 Senior Resolutions Of all the achievements of the various grad- uating classes at Tech, one which will probably be longest remembered is that of the June '21 class in the form of resolutions. Feeling the need of an organized movement to promote and to better the general welfare of Tech, and realizing that it was up to the Seniors to set the pace, a committee was ap- pointed for the purpose of drawing up some resolutions that would show to the school the attitude of the Seniors. The resolutions adopted proved to be of such quality, and so representative of the senti- ments entertained by the whole school, that they were accepted by the entire student body. These will undoubtedly continue to be repre- sentative of the student body and will prove to be a living monument to the June '21 class. Aim: C11 To promote the interests, ideals, and general welfare of Tech. Q21 To establish standards of conduct that will benefit us as students. Resolved, that we the members of the June graduating class of 1921 will abide by and pro- mote the following: C11 We will not cause disturbances around rooms where classes are in session. C21 We will conduct ourselves as gentlemen in the lunchroom, halls, stairways, and on the campus. C31 We will attend all assigned classes, unless properly excused. C41 We will not deface the buildings, or litter up the campus with waste paper. C51 We will conduct ourselves as gentlemen at all athletic meets, whether we win or lose. Q61 We will do our part in preserving order in the classrooms and also in keeping them clean. Q71 We will remain on the campus until our schedule is over and will try to influence others to do the same. Q81 We will strive at all times and in all places, as students of Tech, to be courteous. Q91 We will preserve the beauty of our campus by using the walks and roadways and keeping off the grass. L i " ' ii-ai WN, In , - 1-: A - ni' 7. , Ig-N V, I I Y Ae 1, , ' I ' ' x 1 .

June, the time for this parting, has come once more. Thus it is that Tech bids farewell to the grad- uating class of June'21. These students are probably the last to grad- uate from Tech, who will have been familiar with Old Tech as it now stands. The days of classes in basement, hall and Woodruff Club are passing, indeed, they have passed, for the next school term will see many changes. Not only the Arsenal, the House, the Barn, the Barracks, Annex, Electrical Building and Shops will constitute Tech, but new buildings and ne .v names will appear. The June'21 class, in a Way, is the last repre- sentative of the Tech with which they have become familiar, and no class could be a better representative. The members have been pro- gressive and have exhibited loyalty to their class and to Tech, on all occasions. As each member passes from the Arsenal grounds, may he be secure in the conviction that Tech bids him farewell with the valued praise, "Well Done, June'2l." Just when we are beginning to think we can make both ends meet, some guy comes along and moves the ends. Don'tiyou hate to be late? I do. That sheepish, sinking feeling that comes over you just as you hit the door! You walk in nonchalantly, vastly unconcerned apparently, but all the time, inside you are feeling like a little old last year's two- cent piece. I know a man who is never a half minute late. He says he would rather be late a half hour, because half hour lateness looks as if there was an honest to goodness reason, but half a minute has no alibi whatsoever. It just screeches to the world that he got up late and dashed madly and just escaped making it. And as he can't afford to be half an hour late, he makes it a point to get in on time. Let's all do likewise. Ex. 900490 We Thank You The Staff wishes to thank all contributors who have helped to make this Semester's CAN- NON the best ever. It is impossible to enu- merate each one, although we appreciate each article, but there are a few who deserve spe- cial mention. Charles Shugart has been an es- pecially loyal helper in the business department. Not only did he get the subscriptions from every member of the faculty, but every CANNON Day he has been right on the job ready to issue the copies. Carl Brecht has handed in number- less jokes and witty stories. Members of the music and commercial departments have sent in some very peppy articles. eases A Nose for News Have you read the snappy personals this se- mester? Haven't they been good? At last the CANNON has been able to give its readers that for which there has been a loud demand- personals. And it is the News English Class whom you must thank for this. Following is a list of these energetic news hunters: Theodore Bedell, Robert Endsley, John Gray, David Haley, Kenneth Hoagland, Louis Jack- son, Carlos Jefrey, Marie Manner, Arrhur Meehan, Herman Olson, and Harvey Petty. ooooo Don,t take things as theY come, head 'em off.

EDIT STHTT I ZENDA o EDITOR Bvsmmss ACULTY DVISEIZS 'ARTHUR HARRIS rmcjazmz EDITOR THTT' II Page T hirty-six Tlllbe Qtsenal Qilanmm Loyalty One of the greatest assets to a community is spirit. A person who is alert and active in the interest of his community soon rises to the front. VVe call him public-spirited. To point out these few interesting personages whom the community looks upon as public-spirited might give rise to the question, if none but these have the interest of the community at heart, is it through their efforts alone that things are done for the public good? No, it is not. Not by any means. One man may give the community a library, another give a site for a park,and still another may give some- thing else. Everyone of these men is public- spirited, and each deserves credit for the good that he has done. But every member of the community cannot donate a library or a park, if he could, what would we do with all of them? However, there is a service as anyone of these mentioned and that is just plain loyalty. Look around in Indianapolis. Which parts of the city have the greatest interest in elections? It will be plainly evident that the heaviest registration and the heaviest vote are recorded in the better residence districts, not in the less desirable parts of the city. The men who say,"I don't care who is elected. What does it matter to me whether he is a Republican or Democrat?" are not usually to be found among those who are suc- cessful in business, who are respected among their acquaintances. The man who doesn't take advantage of his privilege to vote, to express his sentiment, is not a good citizen. I don't care if a man is a socialist, if he goes to the polls on election day, he is better than the man who doesn't go at all. Now it is the same with a school, we cannot all be athletes, we canlt all play basket-ball, or base-ball or football, but we can, every one of us, be rooters-boosters for Tech. Tech is a community-no longer a little one but a big one, the biggest of its kind. But how can Tech be the Best of its kind if the students are not out for Tech and Tech alone- if its student body is not loyal? Keep this in mind, if you want Tech to be the leader in athletics, boost for the teams. If you want her to show the best spirit, be loyal, and loyalty includes courtesy. Say a good word for Tech wherever you go. lf you can't think of something good to say, don't say any- thing at all. George Strassler The Freshies donit know they don't know, The Sophomores know they donit know, The Juniors don't know that they know, But the Seniors-they know that they know. The Melting Pot The United States is often called the melting pot, and this same expression is usually a very good characterization of the average graduating class. In the ordinary high school graduating class there are about as many different types as there are different people. You know the various kinds. There are the studious ones, the gay ones, the sober ones, the frivolous ones, the active ones, the indifferent ones, the dreamy ones, the practical ones-as many different characters as there are descrip- tive adjectives in the English language. And yet in one respect they are all alike-they are all eager to cast in their lot in the Qreat game of life. They are young and inexpzrianced, but they possess that which outweighs the experi- ence of the worldly-wise-the unconquerable hope of youth. i D Just as the motley hordes of immigrants who enter the huge melting pat of the United States come out, all with the same stamp-the badge of Americanism-so do the members of the gradu- ating class emerge from the melting-pot of a large high-school, bearing the same imprint- the badge of better ideals, of unsefishness, in- dustriousness, and service. ooooo Our Tech Technical High School grim and grand The one and only in the land From San Francisco to New York State Tech, our Tech, you have no mate. There's none with such historic walls From Tampa to Niagara Falls. And students too, no band so loyal Whose blood would not within him boil When some one mentioned "Dear old Tech" Tech, our Tech, there's none so grand And none to equal our own home band, This is the truth and is no ditty Right here at Tech we have our city, We have a traffic cop and home guard too, We always keep them the winter through.

Lloyd Harrison, in town for the purpose of attending a convention, knew a pretty young girl, Lois Kern. That accounted for the fact that Lloyd was trudging along in the rain-Lloyd hated rain-three blocks from the Devon Flats. He carried a huge umbrella from which streams of Water poured incessantly upon his new ten cent shine, entirely spoiling the effect of that unusual luxury. He had taken exactly one thousand two hundred forty seven steps, since he had nearly fallen off the street car- he had counted them, since there was nothing else to do. Together with five skids and a narrow escape from the clutches of a wild and woolly automobile, he had lost seven-tenths of his temper. His neat black, business-like suit was quite sadly be- draggled when he finally reached the Devon Flats and rang the bell. He was wondering if Lois was at home, when his eye fell upon the name card on the door which read: MR. J. M. BROWN It was the wrong door! What was he to do? Someone was coming. The door was opened by a dignified little lady. "Is lXfIr. Thompson here?" he asked pleas- antly. It was his only way out. "Oh yes, come right in, we thought you were never coming. just take a chair. Ifll send Mr. Brown in. Mr. Thompson isn't quite ready yet. My, we do hate to have him leave us, he's just the dearest fellow!" And she hurried out of the room. "Well, this is a jolly situation, to be sure!" thought the bewildered Mr. Harrison. "Now who do you suppose this fellow Thompson is anyway? W'hewl Well, I guess I'm in for it now!" Further soliloquy was impossible for Mr. Brown had entered. His silver hair showed that he was well on in years, and his broad, friendly smile and "Howdy, Mr. Page," ren- dered Harrison's curiosity almost unbearable. "And where is the young lady-your-a wife-I take it?" Harrison's brain worked fast. Now where was his wife anyway? What was he to say? ,fi wmtshh amine. 3, He was determined to see this thing through "She was complaining of a cold so we con- cluded it would be better for her to stay at home." What else was there to say? Brown looked sharply at him, but let the sentence pass. "Yes, I see. She seemed greatly interested in IXfIr. Thompson. The dear fellow has just finished his bath and is sprucing up a bit before making his appearance. He will be ready in a few moments. By the way, lVIr. Page, Mr. Thompsonas license and taxes are paid up in full." Lloyd shook inwardly. 4'And my wife wanted me to tell you about his meals. He's very particular about his food. Prefers broiled meat to fried. About once a week he likes a little bit of raw beef-never eats pork. He's a regularjew in that respect. He doesn't care much for bread, unless it's an occasional hot biscuit. He loves gravy and potatoes. He's a thorough prohibitionist-drinks nothing but milk and water! Hal Hal" Mr. Brown seemed to think this a very good joke so, to keep peace Harrison laughed, too. just then Mrs. Brown entered with a small, white toy poodle in her arms. "VVell, well, I expect you thought Mr. Thompson would never be ready," she ex- claimed, "but here he is at last." Lloyd looked around but saw no one in trousers except Brown. "Mr. Thompson is rather an odd name for a doggie, isnft it?" she went on caressing the woolly object in her arms. So that was it. But what was he going to do with a poodle? If it had been a bull-dog or a hound, he would have bought it and escaped from all this beastly mess. But Mrs. Brown was still talking. "I just gave him a bath and put a fresh bow on his collar so's he'd look pretty for his trip on the train with his new master and mistress. I do hope you and the lady will love the little chap as much as we do. Why, don't you know, once-there, the door bell is ringing. I won- der who it could be." She opened the door and a very flushed, out of breath and dripping wet figure stood upon Page Thirty-eight The Qtsenal Qtannrm the mat. He was dark-eyed and handsome. "Is Mr. Thompson ready, Mrs. Brown? Dolly is waiting for me now, and I am afraid I shall miss the train. Here," he handed her several bills, "Isn't that right? Here Tommy, nice Tommy, come to Mr. Page. He won't hurt Dolly's little doggie. VVell, good-bye Mrs. Brown. Dolly will take good care of Mr. Thompson." And taking the white poodle from Mrs. Brown, he disappeared down the hall into the street. "Well, what the-" ejaculated Brown. 'cSame here," said Lloyd. "I'm looking for the Kerns, not poodlesf' 'cOur ad distinctly said poodles. The Kerns live next door." "I see,,' drawled Lloyd. "I should have known to find the Kerns, one should call next door."

Oh thou, Where necks are strained and Eyes all but turn in their sockets to See the mysterious, white questions, which are Written on thy black wall by some Well-known hand. Where the wild And clammy rains beat upon thy Panes or ghostly winds howl 'round Thee at the immortal hour. Thou, oh thou, where e'en with all thy Unconquerable faults, thou holdest yet A charm for all that has been praised Or rejected within thy walls.

Dorothy Anne Allen, English I. Romeo and julyet The large, fat old darky woman pushed open the cabin door and entered with a large clothes basket full of fresh clothes which had just been taken off the line. " Cleopatra, Oh, Cleo!" came a call. "Yessum!" and hastily depositing the heavy basket on the cabin floor, mammy hurried out in answer to the summons. just then the unexpected happened. The clothes basket which had been covered with a sheet, slowly turned over, the sheet was pushed off and two coal-black, kinky-haired pickan- innies slowly sat up and surveyed each other. Reader, allow me to introduce "Romeo" and "julyet," two pickaninny twins as like as two peas, with twinkling black eyes, as dif- ferent from the dozens of other pickaninnies as could beg even to their names of which ole' mammy was justly proud. Mammy's black cherubs did not have the common everyday names such as Dinah and Cornwallis, if you please! Ole' mammy's wicked little pickaninnies were firmly believed to be in league with old Nick himself. Everything that happened on the great plantation was traced directly to these tiny darkies, but old mammy loved them. Not another negro child on the plantation could sing or dance or mimic as these two. The mas- ter could have made mints of money having them perform in public, but he was a kind- hearted man and would not take the little black children away from ole' mammy. Cleopatra hurried across to her master's house and he told her to bring the children over to sing for a man who was at the plantation that day, trading slaves. She hastened back and was met by a tragic scene. Romeo and julyet were having a frolic among the clothes which were far from clean now. Hastily she gathered the clothes into the basket with one hand while she held the squirming little blacks with the other. She washed their faces until they shone. Then they were sent scampering across the lawn to sing for ole' marse. "I say, Harris, let me buy those two kids!" exclaimed Marshall, the trader, half an hour later when he had witnessed their performance. "Name your pricef, "Couldn't think of it Marshall, I would as lief sell ole' mammy herself. No, I couldn't possibly think of selling them," said the master. It was later in the day. The trader had gone to his room and was slowly pacing back and forth. "Stubborn as a mule,', he muttered to The Qrsenal Gannon Page Thirty-n ine himself. '4Wonder why he won't sell those lkids. They would bring money down at Or- eans. Won't sell, eh? I wonder what he would say if they disappeared some dark night. Well! I'm not above it." He did not hear the rose trellis at the window rustle. How did he know that same thick creeper contained plenty of elbow room for two squirming pickaninnies? "Do you s'pose he would steal us from Marse F" Julyet asked Romeo. "He ain't a gonner git this niggah," whisper- ed Romeo, and then the two slid down the trellis right down into ole' Marse's very arms. He held them both and asked sternly what they had been doing. Then they told him what they had heard. He listened quietly and then told them not to tell anybody, not even mammy what they had told him. Setting them free, they scampered off. The sun sank and the twilight deepened- Ole' mammy had gone to meetin' and the twins stretched themselves in the doorway enjoying the cool breeze that swept over the plantation. Finally they went to sleep. Stealthy steps aroused Romeo. His first thought was that it was the man he had heard plotting, come to steal them. He decided to keep quiet and wait. julyet slept on. Before he could cry out, hands covered his mouth and he was borne away in somebody's arms. His captor conversed in low tones to another man who followed with julyet. He made for the grove of trees where two horses awaited. just as he reached it a stern voice cried out, "Halt!,' It was the Marse and several other plantation men, all armed. The children were taken back to their cabin While the master stayed to deal with the would-be abductors. It was found that Marshall had obtained the aid of a half-wit colored boy who worked on the plantation, by means of a bribe. The master could not have one of his own guests arrested for he was too much of a gentleman, but he gave lyfarshall a horse and twenty-four hours to leave the country. Well, all's well that ends well, and Romeo and Julyet had saved the day as well as them- selves just by a climb up that rose trellis.

Anon A Basket-ball Hero He was a senior in a small Southern Indiana High School and was playing the game of his life in the finals of the State Basket-ball Tour- nament. His team was the dark horse of the tourney. It had fought its way inch by inch to the final game. It was still fighting, but under the handicap of a large score piled up by the larger town team. They were fighting, yes fighting, but what was the matter! They just couldn't get the ball and keep it long enough to work it down the floor. Toward the close of the first half he could see they were gaining, he could feel the on- slaught ofthe opposing team weakening. Then, as the ball was thrown up at center after a basket had been made against them, he ran in and received the tip-off-then down the floor- through the floor guard, under the back guard- and then he did what he had intended to do- he scored! he had started their scoring! Then the gun sounded. The half was over. Encouraged, his team came back on the floor at the close of the rest period, a new team. He could hear, as if they were far away, the cheers of the large crowd. Slowly, basket after bas- ket, they climbed to within three points of their opponents, score. The other team was weaken- ing but his team was still fresh. A foul goal and they were only two points behind. Both teams tightened. Down the fioor, up the fioor, for fully five minutes the ball was worked back and forth. Could neither team score! and then another foul, and they were one point behind. Then, receiving the ball, he started down, determined to reach the basket, only to be stop- ped by the opposing fioor guard. What must he do! He knew the time was about up and they were only one point behind. He received the ball under the opposite basket-and then down the fioor-he knew this was his last chance. He could see the basket coming clo ,zer and closer, he could also see the big back guard planted firmly in front of it watching him like an eagle, ready to pounce upon him. He knew he would not get through him. What could he do? Suddenly a determination appeared in his mind-he would jump over him and shoot! Closer, closer-and then the leap and the shot- he could feel the quick spring of the surprised backguard as he rose from his stooped pose as he hurled headlong into the basket stanchions. As in a trance he could see the teams stop their advance down the floor. It had gone in! And then the gun. The gun! Faintly, very faintly, amidst the far-off cheers of the crowd, he could feel himself being borne off the floor by his teammates. Clarence Cochran. Page Forty Zllibe Qrsenal Qllannnn A Little Journey We thought weld go to Lebanon The Chunk, the Chappie and Ig To avoid the rush, we took the train And that's the reason why, We got there in the afternoon Of that chill and windy day. We chronic tardies were much too soon- Four hours-to fritter away. We walked around the Public Square And saw the County Jail, The County Courthouse stands there, too, Also, a hitching rail. We next went to a movie show The Filum there was awful- In "Mary's Little Lobster" The "Sand Witches" weren't lawful. There was a "VVild West" thriller, too, And "Mutt and Jeffl' had fits. The music was thrown in beside, For the large sum of two bits. We pulled our freight to a hotel Clt won the barbed-wire chokerj And there in comfort spent some time In brushing up our poker. But soon a craving filled our souls, Mere cards could never satisfy, So we fared forth in search of food Hunger raging in every eye. This small hotel did not serve meals- They all went out to eat. The clerk directed us to a house A A few blocks up the street. We sat down at the table. QThe cloth was fairly cleanl The guests were several section hands And a farmer, lank and lean. Beneath fifty-seven varieties Loud groaned the festive board, The bread was in enormous hunks To feed the hungry horde. It beat a restaurant meal all hollow Kicked a cafe meal sky-high. What we couldn't chew we had to swallow Began with beans and closed with pie. A country meal has oft' been lauded We'll leave that to the bards- Enough to say we empty went Back to our game of cards! And so the dreadful hours rolled At last! we saw the game: lt took the cake from end to start And added to our fame. The boys were all in form that night, But for pep and speed why say You should have seen them comin' home- I thot l'd pass away. VVell, we got back to town all right No band there, tho, to greet us. We thot at least thereld be a hack Or something there to meet us. But when I look back on that day, As I know I often will Of all that chanced along the way That meal will haunt me still! 00000 The Contribution of a Freshie Deer Editur: The feat are among our most important parts, because if we didnlt have feat what wood we stand on. However, thare mane use is to put our shuze on as if we didn't have them we wood have to go bare-footed because if yew expect to ware shuze you must ferst have feat. Feat are meny different sizes, depending on whose they are. The feat of children ain't as big as grone peoples feat, but that ain't any sign they won't be wen thay finish growing. Also Wimmen's feat ainit as big as men's feat in looks, but that ain't eny sign that they ain't even bigger in reality. This is because of the fact that wimmen always buy thare shoes about two or three sizes too little while men buy theres just the rite size, on account of not caring how big thare feet gets just so thay can lift them off of the ground. However the wimmen want thare feat as small as possible, and even smaller if possible, so thay put them in shuze that make up fer thare size as far as outside apperances go. All of wich proves that if you go by apperances you are liable to get fooled. Babies verry often put thare feet in thare mouth and everybody ses "How cute of him," but if a grone gentleman did that people wood think he was a stark-starring fool witch he wood be. This proves that babies have got more rites than eny body else, wich is a pity on account of them not having enough cents to no it. Expressions conserning the feat are as follows Have your feat been lost and throwed away? Meening that you ought to use them. Go count your toze. Meening tend to your own bisiness. lllibe Zltsenal Qllannou Page Forty-one Your branes must be in your heels. Meen- ing that you don't seem to have eny eny where else. Amung other things the feet have at least ten toze and if you have less you proberly have been cheeted. However if yew haven't got your share yew ain't missing mutch, on account of them beingmore ornamental than useful and not mutch of eather. Peeple only have too feat wile animals have four but, never the less most peeple are verry well satisfied with the two thay have and ain't envying the animals eny on account of them having more feat than they have got. Pruving that enuff of a good thing is a plenty. Yours Omnivrously, HUD JONES, fresh freshie. Adapted by Carl Brecht, Jr, ooeee The Roses of Tech During the many recent campaigns at "Tech" to preserve our trees, and the general beauty of our grounds, nothing has yet been suggested to eliminate the prison-like appear- ance, which Technical presents to passers-by, but more especially to the prospective students. The old iron fence which now surrounds our cherished institution, was constructed many years ago by the Na tional Government, when the site was used as an arsenal. This strong, sombre, enclosure, was designed, not to beau- tify, but to restrain those who would unlawfully seek entrance. The arsenal with its warlike activities has long since been abandoned, and the ground is now the home of Technical High School, which we believe is destined to become the greatest high school in America. It is our opinion that great improvement can be made on this remnant of the barbarous ages which now adorns our campus. We would suggest that under the supervision of the gardening class, or any other body, roses of the twining variety be planted the entire length of the fences. The rainblers by virtue of their own characteristics, with but little care from students interested, would soon envelop this formidable barrier and transform it into a thing of beauty. It would not take a great deal of imagination to appreciate what a wonderful change a bank of many thousands of rambler roses would make of this black, unsightly fence. Their beauty would soon earn for them the admiration of all who passed our way, and their fame would spread, with the name of our beloved institution until, they would be known everywhere as the beautiful "Roses of Tech." Hugh Enyart Northern Lights For days now Kiowana had mushed along steadily northward. His dogs lagged and dropped in their tracks, and were made to go only by the cruel punishment that they re- ceived from the fangs of the leader dog. Kiowana and his partner, Wasatche Bill, had set out from Dawson and travelled through the Arctic region towards the mouth of the Mackenzie River. But hard luck had hit these two. Ten days out from Dawson Wasatche Bill had become ill, and a halt had to be called. Kiowana had cared for him the best he could, but at the end of five days he was dead. Kio- wana had wrapped him in a tarpaulin and had buried him in the snow. All that night Kio- wana had travelled to make up the lost time. The next morning when he fed the dogs their half ration he noted with anxiety how their food supply had been reduced. When he was again ready to set out he tried to find his com- pass, he searched his clothing and unpacked his outfit, and then a cold fear gripped him. It had been buried with Wasatche Bill. He had searched Wasatche's pockets, but Kiowana remembered that Wasatche had tied it around his neck. He thought that he might use the sun and stars as his guide, but it had been weeks since he had seen th: sun and seldom did the clouds clear away at night. No, only one th'ng remained to do, and that was to go back over his trail and dig up the compass, the only guide a man could depend upon in that vast world of whiteness. That night he camped again by the fresh grave of his partner. The next morning he aiose hours before dawn, fed the dogs their scanty meal of frozen fish, and boi ed himself a cup of coffee. After h s meal he went slowly to the grave. Oh! how he hated the task, bu he knew that it mi ht mean another life unless he recovered the compass. Then he kne t down and began scooping the snow away with his hands. The dogs dew around in a circle, their breath curling upward in the frozen air like ghosts. Long Kiowana worked there, the stillness being broken only by the scratching of his mittened hands in the snow, and liy the dogs that howled t eir weird cries What was the matter? He had dug deep down into the snow a 1 ye had not run across the body of Wasatche. Kiowana looked about to see if he had been dig ing in the right pace. Yes, there was the rude cross wi h the date on i', that he had whfttled out and placed at the head of the grave. There could be no mistake ahout the place Page Forty-two Ulibe Qrsenal Qliannun but where had the dead man disappeared? Even if he had be n buried alive he had been too sick to move and besides he h d been frozen. Kiowana climbed rut of his freshly dug hole, a d sat down to think. Had wolves dug the dead man up? No, that was impossible, for ihey would have left some sign of clothes scattered about. And the snow would have been dug up. But then he remembered that the wind could have easily drifted the hole full of snow, again. No, wolves had not gotten Wasatfhe, for wolves or any kind of animals were very scarce ii these parts of the Arctic. After Kiowana had called and called, he har- nessed his dogs. Then, again climbed into the hole, and kicked and tore about in it for several minutes. He had never been a believer in ghosts or spirits, but this queer incident mixed with his loneliness, and the stillness of that white Arctic night seemed to help a great fear to grip him. He threw himself out of the grave and onto the sledge, and with a crack of his whip was gone in a whirl of flying snow. Kio- Wana had turned and looked back over his shoulder, all that was visible was a bright star that blinked above the horizon. Then the wind caught up the snow back by the grave and Hung a great white spray into the air. Like a wild man Kiowana leaped from the sledge and beat his dogs into a mad run. All that night and far into the next day he ran beside his team, where, he did not know, but, from the mental strain and physical ex- haustion he fell into the snow and slept. Several hours later he awoke, and brushed the snow from his clothing. He was stiff and part of his face was frozen, but he thawed it out by rubbing snow upon the frozen parts. After that he ate a small handful of food, untangled the dogs, and was again on his way. For several days he tried to make his dogs go ahead, but they were so starved and worn out that it was impossible for them to move even the empty sledge. Kiowana, for fear of his life, could not sleep, for at night the hungry dogs sat around in a circle and eyed him and each other greedily. The next day he tried to kill one of them for food, but they were far too wise for him. The dogs had chewed their har- ness, until it was in many parts, and one day a big dog ate the moosehide thongs of one of Kiowana's snow shoes, for food. That night as the northern lights gleamed in the sky, a starved man watched them. As he looked a team of dogs and two men appeared, coming over a ridge. Kiowana looked at them and thought how nearly dead he must be, for he had heard how starved and frozen men, as they were dying, had seen images of different things. But now, real men had h'm and were shaking him. Days after, when Kiowana was recovering at home, his friends told him of how they had come upon the grave of Wasatche, and since he had been an old friend of theirs, they had started back to Dawson with his body to give him a decent burial. VVhile they were there they had found Kiowana's notebook which had told of how scant his food supply was. So these men, on learning that he had not yet arrived at any food station, had set out to rescue him.

So you have to work at last do you? I knew it would come. lVIe: For goodness sakes! When did you come to life? A dead geometry is bad enough, but a live one is too much to bear. Book: Oh no. I am only speaking for your own good. Me: For my own good! Then I suppose this senseless jumble of lines and circles is giving me brain fag for my own good! I really don't see how you can live and contain such-such- nonsensical--! Book: Tut! Tut! Don't talk like that. That jumble of lines and circles is really very in- teresting if you only knew it. And it is your own fault if it is hard to understand. Did you study the proposition last night? lVIe: Well, n-no. But what has that to do with this one? Book: Everything. In fact it is entirely based upon it. That is the secret which I am telling you for your own good. Each propo- sition follows upon the last and you canit do one without the one before it. Now tell me, do you study every night? Me: Oh yes, I usually glance over the propo- sition. Book: Ah, there you have it. You admit then that you have slighted me in the past. You have glanced at me and then spent the whole of the evening with my friend, Miss Fiction. I will concede that Miss Fiction is very beautiful and her conversation quite charming but for real intelligence I am far more noted. There is no lightness about me. I deal in facts and have a reason for every fact. The world is built on facts and facts on reasons. I also am built on facts, first a fact to begin with and then other facts piled upon this fact- Me: Stop! Stop! Your facts are becoming nerve racking. Instead of talking nonsense why donit you untangle those lines and circles for me? I can never do them alone and I shall surely flunk if I fail on this proposition. Book: Ah, my dear- Rome was not built in a day and neither was the coliseum built first, so this proposition cannot be solved when the whole term's work has been neglected nor can this work be made up in a day. Do you not believe me? Me: Oh yes, I believe you. But can you not give me a hint at solving this proposition? Book: No, No! I am rather vain and when people slight me I feel it greatly. Young people very often slight me for the more beautiful Miss Fiction and when they get older they are sorry they did so. But still-you seem very sorry you slighted me so if you will promise- Me: Oh yes, yes! I promise always to study you faithfully every night-on my word of honor I will. Book: Very well, I will help you then. The key to this proposition is the fact that line AB equals XY by proposition XX. There, you have it. Me: Oh thank you so very much, Miss Geometry. I am going to erase the verse I wrote about you, at once. Book: What was that? Me: "Geometry!Geometry!

Lord Howard said, "VVhat chance have we Against fifty-three. I will take my five boats and Hy, Lest all my men should die. " So Lord Howard turned, And beat a hasty retreat, With his small fleet. Sir Grenville hoisted his wounded men aboard. And turned on the Spanish horde. His famous little ship against fifty-three, A very brave man was he. They fought all day and night, Fighting a long-to-be-remembered fight. And as day was breaking in the east, The enormous Spanish ships, still hovered near As enormous birds waiting for the feast, The Revenge surrendered, and Sir Richard Grenville died, Without losing his self-pride. He was buried, by the Spaniards, Who, all due respect rendered. Then there came a mighty gale Which blew against the sail And a mighty wave swallowed the little Revenge, Manned by her, now, swarthy crew, To be lost forevermore in the main Near to the coast of Spain. John Davis Page Forty-four 2117132 Qlrsenal Qllannnn Great Expectations Little Johnny Brown sat engrossed in his book. His father looked up and smiled in- dulgently, for the back of the book bore the inscription, in golden letters, Civil Govern- ment. "I will be the father of a great lawyer some of these days," thought he. The hands of the clock moved around to nine, and Mr. Brown, after the fashion of the good people of the town, retired. Johnny studied on. The hands of the clock pointed at ten. Mr. Brown opened the door and peeped in. The golden letters of "Civil Government" met his eyes. A benevolent smile overspread his face. "I will be the father of a Congressman some of these days," he exulted. The clock struck eleven. -Iohnny's head was wobbly, but he studied on. Again Mr. Brown peeped in and again the golden letters of Civil Government met his eyes. As he tip-toed back to his bed-room, his face wore an expres- sion of pure joy. Visions of his son as president raced through his mind. As the clock was striking twelve, Mr. Brown once more peeped in. Johnny had at last fallen asleep and his book had fallen unheeded to the floor. Peeping out from between its covers, the most glaring of red letters met Mr. Brownls gaze, and they spelled "Jesse James!" Marion Wells, Eng. IV. cocoa The Great Catastrophe For four years the world had been under the despotic rule of a people from another planet. These people were vastly superior in intellect, to the people of the earth, and were enabled to attain the positions of masters after a war of only three months. Since then the earth had witnessed the terrible heights of tyranism to which the intellect of man enables him to climb. The conquerors had everything. The conquered had-nothing. However, the wisdom of the foreigners was so great that it finally proved their downfall, for they neglected to prevent the earth people from learning anything by the examples of themselves. As a consequence, the earth's original in- habitants grew wiser day by day and finally reached the point where they were equal to their tyrants. They did not stop there, how- ever, they waited their time and secretly gathered knowledge of their earth until their scientists proclaimed that there was no more to be known. A Then was man master of all the earth secrets. Now was the time to strike. The people all rose as a unit and assailed the foreigners. There followed a great war, which lasted for eight months and ended in the expulsion of the trespassers. The world then enjoyed perfect liberty and peace for a month. That was the happiest month of all the year, and the people were all rulers of themselves. But suddenly, and with- out the slightest warning the elements refused to supply the machines with electricity. The horrible truth dawned on the world. Electricity had disappeared. They knew from their re- cent acquisition of knowledge that electricity was the one great necessary component of gravity. In a few minutes their worst fears were realized. With a tremendous quiver, the earth slipped out of its place in the heavens and began moving toward the sun. The great planet increased its speed as it moved until the heavens about it seemed one great dis- play of fireworks. The sun seemed growing larger. They knew what would happen now. The earth struck the great ball of radium with a deafening crash and a Hash which withered everything on the earth. Then with a violent upheaval and a sudden rending explosion from within, the earth dis- appeared. Roland Rapier oocvoo The Rain and the Robin fAn Early Spring Dialoguel "Pitter! Patter! Pitter!

The number of points chalked up for us was 655, against our opponents, 498, 294 of these were made in the first half and 361 in the last half. The same old defense was held through- out our last half, our opponents having scored 239 during the first and 259 during the last. The following team data is of interest to all basketball fans: Field Fouls Pts. Games 69 21 Griggs 28 166 Greenburg 65 130 23 Nipper 43 32 118 20 Adkins 32 64 18 Jefry 9 18 7 Conly 8 1 17 21 Wilson 12 13 37 18 Woolgar 9 18 14 QQQQQ Ye Basketball Stars of Yesterday Griggs! After two years of basketball experience on the state squad, as forward, Griggs made his third and last year a record breaker. He played a consistent game all dur- ing the last season and played his best to the last moment of the Vincennes game. We must give "Hal" credit for being our most slippery forward with a trained eye for the basket, either from the field or from the foul line. Nipper: We are now speaking of the back- bone of our defense. One year's experience on the state squad had trained Nipper to hold down the quickest forward. To dribble the ball out of the forward's hands or to intercept a pass and get it started towards the basket, was an easy play for "Nip". Never did Bob lose his smile during the hottest of games nor even when losing to Vincennes, the last game of the season. We also give him credit for his consistent ac- curacy at the foul line and also from the field during a close game. Conley: After a year of experience on the state team, Conley is notably called "I-lawky the Secondv. With his large form and long reach, this back guard has caused many a star forward to lose his reputation. To dribble from beneath the enemy's basket to the center of the floor and then shoot, was his favorite play and it was a familiar sight to see the ball drop through the net. Remember those two long ones in the Manual game during the sec- tional finals? Atkins: Oh yes, Atkins is the fellow you see only during a tOSS-up and time-outs because he is every place at once during the game while playing the forward position. To dribble from one end of the floor to the oth er and score, or, to shoot from the center and follow the ball up and also score are two familiar plays of "Jess". You can't remember that any guard ever held him down during a close game. Greenburg: With not much experience at the trade, our center showed up an exceptionally fine player for his initial season. Although Greenburg was not so consistent as he could have been, he surely could hit the net for two points when it was necessary. No angle of the floor ever worries "Tommie's " eye for the bas- ket when he gets started playing. Jeffries: We never worried when our center or forward could not play the game for there was "Jeff" to continue the good playing and many a time he showed up better, and won the game by his quick, accurate playing. Updegraph: When there was anything wrong in our defense, "time-out", and "Updy" went in and turned the tables around and started things going in our favor. Many a forward was fooled when he met this short, stocky back guard and was usually picking himself up with the realization that "Updy" had the ball. Wilson: A floor guard on whom we could al- ways depend to play a consistent game was Wilson. A star forward always earned his basket if he shot it from under this guard Wilson. Many a time credit was given to him for break- ing the defense. Woolgarr Although a smaller type of man Bobby was a hard one to keep from scoring. A tall guard had a hard time to take care of him for he was in and out and had scored be- fore the guard could have laid his hands on him. Cline: Although he could not finish the sea- son "Stew" made a name in Tech's basketball history. Guarding was his favorite end of the game and he played this position with great ability for an inexperienced man. This last season, we can easily say, was our most successful basketball year especially con- TEIJB Qwtltal Qllanliuli Page Forty-seven sidering how late the season started on account of football and the green players that it was necessary to develop into stars before the end of the season. The last games of the schedule were with the strongest teams in the state and they were Won by remarkable playing. The sectional was won with greater ease than ever before and hopes Were running high for the state championship but in the semi-finals at Bloomington the team collapsed entirely before the Vincennes lads and Without any explain- able reason whatever. They received their worst defeat of the entire season, 29-8. Since Techls basketball ability has grown to the sectional championship standard, it is up to us to take the last step higher toward State championship. Tech must not let it be said any longer that Indianapolis High School Athletics is a dead problem. Vliake upl Tech, and put your largest student body in the state behind athletics and push her to the land of laurels. The Baseball Season The baseball season was launched early in April very creditably by lVIr.Crandall. The regular team being organized, a city league was arranged with hlanual in which four teams from each school participated. Coach Cran- dall chose the following state team: Charles Baden, catcher John Bittner, catcher Francis Payne, pitcher Paul Sylvester, pitcher Carlyle Ewing, pitcher John Conley ,lst base Robert Nipper, 2nd base Francis Sheppard, 3rd base Dick lN1ills, short stop Robert Vlloolgar, outfield Fred hflertz, outfield Cliflord Stelhorn, outfield Paul German, outfield .f Q The Sectional Champions IQZI. Page Forty-eight 'dlibe Qtsenal Gannon A New Athletic Field About two months ago news in the form of a new athletic field was bestowed upon Tech. This new athletic field is now being prepared under the excellent supervision of Mr. True- blood. There are to be, three baseball diamonds, one football gridiron and one quarter mile track. On the south side of the field there will also be permanent bleachers, then too, on the North side there are to be constructed some temporary bleachersg these bleachers combined will hold about three thousand people. Therefore this new athletic field coupled with the new gymnasium should help bring results in establishing Tech on the athletic map. These two necessities should also help bring out a larger amount of new material than has ever turned out before. Let's go, boys, and take everything in the way of athletics next year. Everybody out. G. L. Fults oeeee Golf Golf, under the coaching of Mr. Lagcrman, proved very successful this spring. As usual a tournament was held and this turned out very well indeed. But there was one thing lacking and that was the turn out of material. The Spring of 1920 witnessed the largest number of Golf enthusiasts ever to turn out at Tech. Last falljust about twenty-eight lads reported for this sport and not many more reported this last semester. Therefore this either signifies that the sport is not very popular, here, which is certainly hard to believe, or, that most of the boys are afraid to turn out for fear of being beaten. Don't be afraid of the great Scotch game, fellows, turn out next fall for Golf, you might win, one can never tell. oeeee Football fAs a little brother sees it.D Some folks think football's all the go, And there's some more who just don't know. VVhile there are some who think it "bosh", But I don't see it that way "by gosh!" Big brother Jim says football's great, And I sure know he's got it straight. He says you ought to be big, not "fat", And tough, and fast, and all o' that. He punts, and tackles, and hits thelineg To see him play is sure just fine. And when I'm older-a year or two- Then, maybe, I can play football too. Wm. Lewis All About Our Three Coaches And Mr. Gorman Our three athletic coaches have made for us one of the most splendid seasons Tech has ever witnessed. Although victory was often coupled with defeat, that same sportsmanship of our coaches was revealed through the splen- did actions of our boys on the floor,field or track. These men put their entire efforts into our teams, the results being exponents of Tech ability. Coach Black worked up a basketball team that carried away the sectional honors. This year's team was practically a new team with the exception of two members. Then he put on the field a track team that was worthy of mention. Coach Black occupies a place in the heart of every Techonion as one of our best athletic coaches. After coaching our first football team Mr. Erehart took a hand at track as assistant to Mr. Black. He piloted our football team through a hard schedule with but one defeat and won for us the city championship and incidentally the right of the first team to engrave its name upon the city football trophy. Mr. Erehart also assisted in the M. T. companies as physical instructor. Mr. Erehart will not return to Tech next semester. He will go to a medical school where he will resume his study as a doctor. We wish him the best of success. Mr. Crandall again coached our second basketball team and then in the spring took his position at baseball. This baseball team started out with a victory over West Newton. Then of course he organized our city league with Manual. Mr. Crandall also leaves us this year. He will go to Milton College at Milton, Wisconsin, where he will assume the duties as director of Athletics. There he will be coach of football and cross-country, basketball, baseball, inter-collegiate tennis and track. Mr. Crandall has been with us for four years with the exception of the time in which he served in the army. Although we regret Mr. Crandall's departure we congratu- late him upon having obtained such a position. Mr. Gorman,our athletic manager,has carried us through a very delightful season by match- ing our teams with teams of state reputation. He maintained those same old prices for our basketball games, track meets, and gave us several football games, at a very reasonable price. Mr.Gorman occupies a pleasant spot in every Techonian's pocket-book. The Qtgtttdl CIKHIIIIUII Page Forty-nine The Girls' Basketball Each year the girls' basketball team has been improving but this past year we have had the best team yet and the most successful season. We can feel justly proud of the team for the fine showing it made because all of the teams played were very strong ones. Our team was never beaten by a large score which proves more than anything else what a fine one it was. The following is a summary of the games: The North American Gymnastic Union CN. A. Girlsj 20-Tech 15, a very close game throughout. Bedford 10-Tech 185 a hard fought game. Shortridge 21-Tech 20, Short- ridge lost only one game, which was to the N. A. G. U., during the season. Christamore Settlement House 8-Tech 155 and on their own floor, too. VVho said we didn't have a good team? Deaf School 1-Tech 30. Deaf School 2-Tech 253 both times on their own floor. Tech was defeated by a small score by the Brownsburg High School, which met its only defeat of the season at the hands of Evansville, the state champion. Broadway M. E. 10-Tech 25, a good, exciting game. The last and best game was between the Alumnae and the Regulars, which ended in a tie score. ,, The members of the team were Edith Am- buhl, Mildred Askren, Nellie Bloemhol, Jo- sephine Buenting,Bernicc Cain, Louise Ehrgott Miriam Garrison, Dorothy Griggs, Alice Hewitt, Wilma Mikesell, Olive Parsons, Florence Pringle, Maxine Tilford, Helen Wiebke. At the close of the season, the members of the team divided against themselves in two teams, the Green and the White, for the Monogram Game, by which five judges deter- mined which ones were entilted to monograms and which to A. T. S. buttons. Those who were awarded monograms are Edith Ambuhl, Nellie Bloemhof, Josephine Buenting, Miriam Garrison, Alice Hewitt, Florence Pringle, Max- ine Tilford, Helen VVeibke. Those awarded buttons are Bernice Cain and Wilma Mike- sell. With a new gym in which to work, there is promise of even a better team than this, next year. -000490 Team Work It is not the ball or baskets, Or the gym that wins the game, lt's the close and steady team-work That brings our High School fame. It is not the single player, Nor yet a five man light, It's the strong, united effort To boost the Green and White. Girls' Basketball Teams 1921 Page Fifty gg The Qtsenal Gannon George Crandall G O O D B Y Archie Erehart Our Yell Leaders The Block T Zip-boom - bah -- who? Yell Leaders! Since Tech athletics started in 1915 there The yell leaders who made up this season's have been ninty-eight block T's or letters, yell outfit were perfect applications to the term awarded to sixty-three men. In basketball Uhumdingerf' Paul Hodges put the "hum', into it and left the rest of the "ding" to his two assistants, John Barry and Charles Goble. The combination could not be equaled. The yelling at the basketball games and tour- nament was unsurpassed in Tech's history. New yells were gathered up and of course the well liked "series" was dragged over from last year as were several other old timers. "Hobby" possesses that effervescent peppy attitude that is required of yell leaders. He goes into it head first and "comes up smiling." His example as a leader is worthy of notice by future yell leaders. oeoee Football Although Tech loses nearly all of the nine- teen-hundred and twenty glorious and vic- torious football team, Mr. Gorman has hopes for just as good ateam for nineteen-hundred and twenty-one, for he has arranged eight hard football games for the coming season. The schedule is as follows: September 24 Greenfield Here October 1 Newcastle Here October 8 Elwood at Elwood October 15 Sheridan Here October 28 Shortridge Here November 5 Steele High School at Dayton November 12 hlanual Here November 18 Klale High School of Louisville Here there have been thirty-eight letters to twenty- iive men: in baseball, twenty-one letters to eighteen men, and in football, nine letters to nine men. Two of these men are "Three-letter-men" because they have received a letter in three different sports, nine are "Two-letter-men" and the remaining are "One-letter-men". Will there ever be a "Four-letter-mann? Robert Nipper has the best chance to be the first one to be awarded letters in four sports because he has three letters now and has a chance to get his fourth in track this season. The year of 1920 was our largest year for Block T awards, twenty-three letters were awarded to seventeen men. This was the first year all four sports were school athletics. In 1917 with only three sports, twenty-one letters were received by seventeen men which shows that athletics can be better in the future with four sports. Hurrah for 1921! 0490047 The Fairy Diary Each morning in our pasture, before the sun r is up, The fairies churn the milkweed to fill the butter- cup.

Report COMPANY A commanded by Captain John Moore and assisted by First Lieutenant Alex Siaggart and Battalion-adjutant Frederick Tammis and Second Lieutenants Adrian Pierce and G. L. Fults has furnished a circus for the early arrivals by their antics, especially in calisthenics. Going around the instructor in a circle they flop their arms about, hopping alternately on one foot and one ear. COMPANY B is commanded by Captain Clarence Cochran and assisted by First Lieu- tenants Harold Zimmerman and George Calla- han, and Second Lieutenant Fred Sanders. The officers have, through their concentrated efforts, succeeded in subduing Art Link and Dick Mills, so that the company may now exe- cute Qthis means "kill',D Squads East, after about a sixty yard running start. COMPANY C, old man, Yale Raymond, First Nuisance, George Smith, Shave-tails, Garritt Bates and Addison King. This is the famous bayonet company you have probably heard Sergeant Russell raving about. The only draw- back is, that when Garritt Bates stands in front of his platoon, the imaginary enemy can't be seen because of his side-burns. COMPANY D is commanded by our infant captain, Noble Boston, and assisted by our bean-pole twins, First Lieutenant Doyle Jessup and Second Lieutenant Clarence Jessup. Eu- gene Taylor has also been found wearing Second Lieutenant bars in this company. This, how- ever, is not a disgrace, better people have worn them. The only thing that this company has achieved is the interruption of the sleep that the CANNON staff tries to make up while in the Guard House. You understand that the staff does its best work at night. COMPANY E is the biggest company of the regiment. It needs two captains, Leonard Swartz and Arthur White, also First Lieutenant George Callahan and Second Lieutenants How- ard Fieber and Robert Cook. This company attained its fame through the tailor-made whip- cord uniform of its ardent commander, old man 1. .., 'gi' 2 'G " .-'.' i -iia Swartz. This captain Che thinks he should be Lieutenant Colonelj is the 'chard boiledest" of any officer since the time of Colonel Dynes.

Carroll War- rick, our sprucy adjutant and captain, com- mands, assisted by First Lieutenant and Drum- major, John Berry and his worship, Second Lieutenant Gowdy Sunderland, S. R. COMPANY F is commanded by our old foot- ball hero, Captain Richard Watson, and as- sisted by First Lieutenant Howard White fchampion gallery shot of the Indianapolis R. O. T. C. Unitj, First Lieutenant Dean Bros- man and Second Lieutenant Wayne Money. This company would rather rave about the shooting of their First Lewie than drill. How- ever, you noticed they were right in style the last battalion parade and review, even though Lieutenant Brosman pulled his usual eighteen and three-fourths "boners." COMPANY G, commanded by Captain Rich- ard Smith and assisted by Second Lieutenants Leonard Pearson and John McVey, seems to drill too soon after lunch. Anyhow, when the First Sergeant blows his whistle you see about half the outfit come tumbling out of the lunch room, each cadet with asandwich or two in his mouth, and some ice-cream, pie or a pickle in either, neither, or both hands. You who eat and then loaf the eighth period will admit this company is good stuff, especially considering the way they make their rifles talk while going through the manual of arms. COMPANY H is commanded by a little ball of conceit and slick hair, Captain Sherman Jones, assisted by First Lieutenant Shelby Min- ter. This company was atrocious, until it in- stituted an ofliceris school within the com- pany. Four cadets have qualified for Second Lieutenants, Louis Heidt, Stanley Moore, Ed- win Muhlenbruch and George Mason. They are now assigned to their respective platoons. Classes in the Woodruff Clubhouse object to the noise made by the old man when he gets in front of his brave hearties to give them P. T. CPhysical Torturej. The Qtsenallfztannnn Page Fifty-three COMPANY I, commanded by Captain Ed- ward Ford, and First Lieutenants Edward Zoll- ner and Tom Omelvena, has been noted for its strict attention during lectures. The Sergeant can explain to the company all about modern warfare, chemical and aircraft organizations, the theory of sights, Or why, when and what to salute, and get the best sort of attention. Well, that explains it, there are not any Second Lieutenants in this company to distract their attention. COMPANY K, composed mostly of freshmen, is being organized by Cadet Major Charles Noble. Probably one of Captain jones' Officer school pupils will land the old man's berth. COMPANY L is under the same inHuence as K company, being organized at this writing, and the cadets are generally so anxious to get home to mother before dark, that they forget about Winking in ranks, so therefore, they must come one period earlier next morning to"walk the bull ringf' 00000 DON 'T get into arguments with Sergt.

Hero Helen Blazes .... .............. H eroine. Otto Manna .................. Villian Chorus Girls ACT ONE As the curtain arises the cast is seen enjoying a snow battle on the school campus. Harry rushes in at this moment. He is clad in a track suit and is industriously engaged in shovelling cinders off his knees. Otto sneers. Our hero valiantly sneezes. At this the chorus lightly skips to the front of the stage and exquisitely renders "La Gargle Song" from Listerine. They then retire to the back of the stage as Helen trips in and rolls up to our brave hero. "Helen," he ejaculates. " Harry," she articulates. Curtain falls and orchestra leader belabors the fagging muses of the Gods ofjazz under his control. ACT Two School gym, chorus is engaged in the arduous task of swinging dumb-bells. Otto tries to osculate the fair Helen. Harry enters at this moment carrying a tennis racquet and pro- ceeds to lob the villain. Helen raises a pair of gladsome orbs to those of our hero and murmurs 'My protector." Otto ,with a wild and glamor- ous eye, caresses Helen with the rotund end of a dumb-bell. He then diabolically trolls forth the "Laughing Song" from Hyena. The curtain falls to the warbling of the Kettle- drums. ACT THREE Curtain rises on the athletic field as our Hero enters in his dashing way. Otto tries to hypno- tize him by throwing a bouquet with a brick nestling in the middle of it, at him. This fails to work by sliding off Harryls well oiled hair. Otto starts to choke Helen. Harry objects for some reason. Otto knocks him down and pulls out a dagger. The curtain oozes down as the chorus beautifully breathes forth "Alice Tea- gown."

The sofa belonged to a man who had three un- married daughters. 00000 Alexander There was a chap who kept a store. And though there might be grander, He sold his goods nor asked for more, And his name was Alexander. He mixed his gcods with cunning hand, He was a skillfull brander. And since his sugar was half sand, They called him Alex-Sander. He had his dear one, to her came Then lovingly he scanned her, He asked would she change her name, Then a ring did Alex-hand-her. "Oh, yes!," she said, with smiling lip, "HI can be commander." And so they formed a partnership, And called it Alex-and-her. -Exchange Rules for Pedestrians Since we see so many rules for auto drivers, why can we not have a list for the poor pedest- rian, such as follows: 1. All pedestrians should carry horns not less than one inch in diameter. These should be blown twice before crossing the street. 2. Pedestrians should never carry pencils or sharp instruments in pockets. If run over they would puncture tires. 3. Pedestrians on seeing new driver on street should get behind trees. Their presence might otherwise confuse the driver. 4. All pedestrians must take out a special license before walking on the streets, so if they are run over and mangled past all recognition they can still be traced by their relatives. This license should be displayed at all times. We think if it were artistically draped across the vest like a watch chain, it would look very "chic". 5. If an autoist barely grazes a pedestrian in passing him, the latter should never hurl un- pleasant remarks after him, but should smi- lingly beg pardon for being outdoors at all. Observance of these rules will make motor- ing a real pleasure. 00000 A Dark Thought This yere hash am certainly what you would call Cosmopolitan. How's dat? It done got all kinds in it.

Spiritualism Owing to spiritualism a new set of rules and regulations should be published, governing the conduct of students: 1. No student should, under any circum- stances ,be allowed to bring a ouija board into any examination room. Any student who, by the blank expression on his face, indicates that he is communicating with Webster, Caesar, Shakespeare, or other authorities on the subject of examinations, should be removed from school. 2. Spiritual advisers should be furnished for all students in need of moral support. Advisers should make themselves as agreeable and harmless as possible: but under no circumstance should a student, however irritated, cut off the breath of an adviser. 3. Table tipping in the Lunch room during the soup course should be forbidden. 4. Any student who feels that he is about to become the recipient of a message from some other world, should report to the City Hospital for further treatment. Any student who thinks he sees the ghost of a chance of getting through the Annex Hall should take a photograph of .t immediately, and submit it to the teacher involved. Charles Swain.

The Qrseual Gannon Page Fifty-nine Manners Manners are like virtues, that is, we have all the available stock while the other fellows have none. Manners are like small brothers and sisters, they are always in the way. The manners I am going to deal with, are those used during recitation. When some one else is reciting be sure and wave your hands in the ozone with undue agitation. This always pleases the teacher and shows her you know your lesson, it also shows the class your hands are acquainted with soap and water sometimes. In a test never look over the shoulder of the bright girl ahead of you- move up and sit with her. This eliminates the strain you might receive if you " rubber-necked " over her shoulder. If the teacher is married call her Miss, if she has fought shy of the male species call her Mrs. This always warms the cockels of her heart and paves the way for satisfactory marks. If Mr. Stuart or any other honored member of the faculty is paying homage to your class- room, call your class-teacher by her first name for this shows the honorable visitors that the teacher and you are on "friendship's favorite grounds." At the same time borrow lunch money from the teacher0this is another sign of your touching friendship. If a teacher, new to the school, passes your class-room door, don't whistle at him. He may be, by nature, reserved and sort of bash- ful towards recognizing strangers such as you. And if one of our budding young girls enters your recitation room with a bulletin be sure and sneeze "who is she" for this not only shows you are interested in her identity and wish her to feel welcome and at home but it is also such good exercise for your sounding board. And last but not least, never forget to laugh atyour class-mate's mistakes when he's reciting. You could not give better proof of your sense of humor and also it shows your openhearted- ness in relieving the one who is reciting of the embarrassment he might otherwise have felt. Mary Susan Williams. 00000 A landlady in Canada kept a register in which she asked each guest to write a quota- tion opposite his name. She was very proud of this book and always showed it to visitors. "There is only one thing I can't understand," she would say, "and that is what an American gentleman wrote. People always smile when they read it. It's just three words: 'Quoth the Raven'." -Exchange. Why Teachers go Crazy 1. Shall we Write on both sides of the paper? 2. I didn't hear the question. 3.
