P 'T - -1 1 1-111.11551 of-fffiggf THE ARSENAL CANNON 27 Eisturp Seniors of June, 1922,our high school days are ended, and as we leave the old historic gate for the last time, we needs must pause a moment to think of the days we have assembled here in these buildings which have grown so dear to us and of the many associations which cluster around the campus. The fall of 1918 is memorable for two reasons, first, this class made its initial appearance as students of Tech, and second, the world war ended. During the Armistice Day parade many members of our class witnessed or helped in the placing of our school Hag on top of the Monu- ment above the fiags of Manual and Shortridge. This was the first time in our high school career that we had seen our school in combat with others, and do you remember the thrill it gave us when we saw that our school had outwitted its greatest rivals? As it is darkest just before dawn, so was Tech in an uproar with soldiers, celebrations, and flu epidemics just before this largest and fairest of classes made its appear- ance on the campus. VVe struggled through our first semester without knowing whether to be more in awe of the faculty, Captain Harding, or the upper classmen. VVe found that by the spring semester of 1919 the strangeness had worn away and that we had dwelt long enough in this land of Tech to have imbibed the Tech spirit and to have adopted the Tech customs. We were taking an active interest in the affairs of the school. XVe were glad to see our band assume its rightful position as the best school band in the state when it was brought into prominence, at this time, by leading the parade in honor of Admiral Sims and Secretary Carter Glass. One of the outstanding events of our freshman year was the Supreme Day cele- bration in lvfay. hffost of the boys in our class took part in the battalion review which formed a part of the program. The foundation on which to build had been erected-and we returned to Tech in September, 1919, as sophomores, with added responsibilit- ies and added dignity. We found that the government had accepted the cadet corps as an R. O. T. C. unit and that the armory was ready for use. Some of us realized full well that as sophomores we were no longer on the lowest rung of the ladder and,1 am afraid, felt a little vicious glee in lording it over some of our freshman friends, Our second semseter of thiS year seemed to be just one triumph after anoth- er for Tech, as we won first place in base ball, sectional honors in basketball and track, and received the Rotary Club pennant for the music memory contest. Next, many members of our class took part in that beautiful and pictur- esque pageant of the history of our school which was directed by lWiss Shover. The mass- ive trees and gorgeous natural suroundings of our campus helped to make a greater success of it. As a final triumph for so progressive a semester, the cornerstone for our present Main building was laid with much pomp and cerem- ony, on June 7. The fall of 1920 found us back and intereste- dly watching our first football team annihilate the other teams. At the close of the season the entire school paraded to the monument where the School Board presented us with a silver cup for winning the city championship. Wie are proud to say that several members of that squad were members of our class: Bob Nipper, Harry Hungate, Dick Klills, Brewer Graham, Joe Geiger, and Niles Hiatt. It wasn 't long until we again paradedgthis time to a mass meeting at Tomlinson Hall to celebrate the winning of the sectional for two consecutive years. The last few weeks we spent in hard work so that we could return to school the next fall as seniors. One of the strangest fallacies to which the human mind persistently clings is that there can be nothing unusual or worthy of admiration in one's immediate surroundings. That we were not of this attitude when we returned to Tech in September, 1921, but that we fully realized and appreciated our advantages in going to such a school was shown by the series of succes- ses which marked our senior year. Early in November we had a great Pep meeting in the lunch room where we heard speeches by about fourteen members of our class, sang some lively songs, and had a general good time. Later in the same month, we had our first class meeting and after adopting the constitution we elected Bob Nipper, president, Dorothy Griggs, vice- presidentg Sherwood Blue, treasurer, and Hilda Smith, secretary. Gur class motto 'Wie Build The Ladder By 1Vhich We Climbflour class colors, jade and maize, and our class flower, Aaron Vffard rose, were selected at the begin- ning of our last semester. Thus strongly organized, we directed our ef- forts toward the welfare of Tech. Our class inaugurated the office messenger service which will undoubedtly continue for some time. But 28 THE ARSENAL CANNON not satisfied with just this, we started a street car courtesy campaign, the result of which has proved to the citizens of Indianapolis that our school traditions of courtesy are sincere. A number of our members were honored by appoi- ntments to the CANNON staff. These pupils have helped to make this a successful year for our paper, the supreme effort is the Decennial magazine number. During the fall semester, Sherwood Blue was editor of Staff I, Harold Van Bussum, editor of Staff I1 , Leonard Pearson, circulation manager, and Mary Black, co-editor-in-chiefof the January, 1922 magazine. During the spring semester, Hilda Smith was editor of Staff 1, Rebecca Pitts, assistant editor of Staff 1, Mary Black, editor of Staff H, Marybelle Baker, assistant editor of Staff 11, Leonard Pearson, business manager, Louis Fults, editor-in-chief of athletics, and Harold Van Bussum and Sherwood Blue, editors-in- chief of the June magazine number. These have been ably assisted in their literary work by Elsa Rottler, Jack Velsey, Harold Harris, Kenneth Hoagland, and James Bell. The horrors of facing the one-eyed monster, sometimes known as a camera, nearly proved too much for some of us, but after this ordeal we bravely celebrated Rose Day in spite of the attempts of the wind and rain to prevent us. At our second class meeting we were given the opportunity of estimating the genius of the nominees for the remaining offices. As a result of that election Al Knox became will maker, Dick lkffills and June Cagwin, prophets, and Charles Murphy, historian. HA Thousand Years Ago" was given at the Murat, April 24, and was a play worthy of the tenth anniversary class of Tech. And so we have reached the end of our high school course. In a few days we shall leave, but in our final parting we look back at the January, 1923 class and say,"To you we yield our place in Tech, to you we leave the duty of upholding her in every wayf' Charles Murphy.

" The will Upon behalf of the members of the class of June, 1922, who are about to "break camp at Tech,', 1, being of mature age, and of unusually sound mind, and being intrusted with this mournful task, do hereby indict this, our last will and testament. The following may seem but trifiing bequests, but we hope they may be accepted, not as worth- less things carelessly given away, but as valu- able assets to those who may receive them. VVe give and bequeath to theJanuary seniors, our knowledge of books, our pep, and our school spirit. VVe also bequeath to the honorable January class, our ability as office messengers. , VVe give and bequeath to our beloved prin- cipal, lNffIr. Stuart, our sincere affection, our heartiest gratitude, and the unlimited wealth of our eternal memory. To the faculty, we give our heartiest appre- ciation and thanks for their helpful instructions. They have all done their duty, and now shall they have their well-earned reward. Harry Hungate and George Curran leave their unequaled ability as milk drinkers to Vlfillard Dunbar and Henry Devaney. James Hatton requests that his spring fever be left to Robert Nelson. hfartha Sillery bequeaths her charming and gentle voice to Dorothy Drake. Doyle Jessup requests that his bean pole corduroys be left to his brother, 1Xf1onta Jessup. Dorothy Ryker, Josephine Rogers, and Helen Lauter leave their 'fmake-upi' tleft from the senior playj to the school in order that the long porch of the Barracks may be painted. Olin Hatton requests that his success in breaking into line in the lunchroom be given to any one who can get by with it. Charlotte Lewis leaves her great quantity of love letters to Sarah Kimmick. Laura Fessler, Iris Hopper, and Ruth Hulse, all A+ students, leave their zeal for work to every individual remaining at Tech. Robert Hiner, Loren Clouds, Amert Clifton, and John Yancey will their playful habits to Darrell Davies, Harold Bailey, Fred Huffman, and Edward Ragland. Hilda Smith requests that her cunning and attractive smile be given to Catherine Phipps. James Pebworth requests that his arguing personality be left to Virgil VVilliams. Francis Sommer wishes that his unusual gift of kidding the girls be given to Donald Bruce. VVe are glad that this is so for Donald is such THE ARSENAL CANNON 29 an innocent little boy that we feel he needs more education in that line. Niles Hiatt wills his superfluous avoirdupois to Mae Turner. Sara Frances Downs, our popular social lead- er, bequeaths her auburn hair and worn-out pink sunbonnet to lylarion Baden. Joe York requests that his bashfulness with the opposite sex be given to Frances Spahr. Frances frankly admits that she likes the boys. To Harriet Stout, Dorothy Griggs leaves her dignity. Velma Slack and Catherine lXlcCoy will their ability of getting dates with pretty boys to An- nette Van Sickle, and Emma hlueller whose sole ambition in life is to have one date at least. Robert Nipper, the boy wonder of Tech, be- queaths his career as a "dumb-bell" to Parks Gilmore. Harold Van Bussum's easy going and lan- guid manner is willed to James Day, for we have heard that at times James is quite rash and impetuous. Hubert Garrison requests that the close shave by which he gets through Tech be given to Ted Nichols. He says Ted's mustache seems to de- mand something of the sort. To Rolla Willy is left the valuable pitching arm of Carlyle Ewing. To Helena Sieloff, the "laughing wonder", is given the frivolous yet impressive, smile of Richard VVilkins. The naturally rosy cheeks and complexion of June Cagwin are willed to Culasa Kinna- man, for with the high price of chemicals we fear that Culasa will go "broke" Sherwood Blue requests that his love for the ladies be given to hlorton Cox who, we fear, is a confirmed woman hater. Byron llioods, Noble Adams, Robert Schetter, lylartha Lukens, and other "dumb-bells" re- quest that their "ignorance is bliss" policy be locked in an air-tight case and be placed on ex- hibition at the Blind School. Harry Ice leaves his coolness to Morris Sel- vage. Jack Velsey, who wears corduroy trousers extremely belled, wills his false teeth to Frank VVilson so that Frank may use them, in his less active life, when he will have nothing to do but to satisfy his unequaled appetite. Glen Gray, the speed demon of Tech, will give Nlvallace Reid a little competition in the 500-mile race this year. Dick lNlills, a second Socrates, wills his ora- torical mind to Lee Vlioods. Shelby hlinter wills his vamping red Ford, which has broken many a fair lady's heart, to Robert Batchelor. The black bowl derby hat of Arthur Gest is given to Chester Peterson who will from now on be decorated with this distinguished "nut-gar- mentf' George Van Dyke and Louis Steinmetz, two bookworms of Tech, will their spongy minds to hlargaret Rink. hlarcella Smith ls ability to use baby talk and childish actions for the pleasure of the boys is handed down to Virginia Patter. Charles hlurphy, the well known politician, wills his worn-out career to Vltlilliam Lewis. VVe hope Bill will become a noted auctioneer. Charles Goble's reputation as the cutest and wildest boy inTech we will to Frederick Sanders. Marybelle Baker bequeaths her literary abili- ty to Edwin Plum. Vernon Carlin and Harold Harris, two of our brightest students, desire that a few A-l-'s be given to Morris Selvage and Charles William- son. Bradley Haight, Tech's "blushing rosew, wills his unassuming manner to Kathryn Pangle. To the future Choral Society is left the melo- dious but not harmonious voices of John Rohm, Charles Robertson, and Stewart Cline. Brewer Graham, Paxton Unger, and hlorris Greenburg, bequeath their athletic ability to future Techonians. Frances Gray wills her spirit and loyalty to all future Tech. lYith this mournful task completed, this, the will of the June Senior Class of 1922, is signed sealed, and published upon this seventh day of June, 1922.

It wasn,t a rollicking play such as the January seniors presented, but a play whose charm and subtlety, well inter- preted, made it enjoyable. The story tells of a young princess, Turandot, who falls in love with a beggar to whom she throws a rose. Later on, rather than marry anyone but her lover, she begs permission of her royal father, Altoum, that she may require of each suitor an answer to her three riddles. Failing, the suitor loses his head. Time passes and the beggar has not reappeared: Turandot grows unhappy, more heads are lost. When the year has all but passed, there appears at her father's court a jester, Capocomico, with his vagabonds, who, to a distracted ruler, promises the return of health to Turandot if Capocomico may reign one day. AThe king agrees, and Capocomico promises to find Turandot's lover and happiness. As it chances, the beggar with another of his clan,was then outside the gates and as Turandot passes they recognize each other and promptly swoon. Capocomico scents a secret. The beggar, really a royal youth and a one time enemy of Altoum, decides to try his skill at answering riddles. Through Capocomico's aid, he answers the riddles and thus wins the right to wed her. She, still loving the beggar and not knowing that the beggar and the successful suitor are one, refuses and begs a release from a marriage against her will. Calaf agrees to release her if she can learn his name. Through help, Turandot learns it and tells Calaf his name and sends him away. But fortunately she learns that Calaf and her beggar of the rose are one. Capocomico yields the throne to the Emperor, again Turandot and Calaf love as only romance would have them. Capocomico, Harlequin, and the other vaga- bonds, with their eternal spirit of youth, leave Cathay in search of further romance, content with the whimsical pay-the happiness of lovers. Truly it was a delightful evening, with all the pleasureamake-believe world could pro- vide. Each member of the cast deserved so much credit that it is difficult not to mention the girls who were lovely ladies-in-waiting, the martial-looking soldiers, the graceful dancers, James Hatton, the singer, the beggars, Harlequin, Punchinello, Scaramouche, and Pantaloon who especially delighted the audience with their antics. The parts of Turandot, the Emperor, Calaf, Capocomico, Barak, Chang, and Zelima were splendidly taken as the following clipping shows. "The outstanding stars in the large cast were hfliss Hilda Smith as Turandot, daughter of Altoum, an oriental emperor, the story being laid in Cathay, Sherwood Blue, a remarkable facile, though youthful, lover in the romantic part of Calaf, hflorris Greenburg as Capoco- mico, and Harry Hungate as Altoum, the em- peror. slack Yelsey as Harlequin, Robert Nipper as Punchinello, Robert Cook as Scaramouche, and Doyle -lessup as Pantaloon, all comrades of Cap- ocomico in a band of vagabond players, sup- plied a large part of the comedy, and carried their amusing parts with a freshness and gusto that delighted the audience. hliss Helene Cooper, as Zelinia, added a quiet touch of wit and comedy in her running dialogue with her mistress, Princess Turandot. John Rohm was good in a minor part, the faithful servant of Prince Calaf. Vllilliam Holtz- man was adequately solemn as Chang,an ex- tremely elongated 'chief guard., Blames Hatt- on sang an incidental number with good effect". Those of us who comprise the audience at a Tech play and marvel at the scenic effects rarely appreciate the fact that the spectacular setting so furnished in detail is a home product. For this last play, all the stage properties, settings and everything were designed by hir. Chelsea Stewart. The wooden properties were made under the direction of hlr. Jones by Earl Springer, Elba Castor, Harold Hager, Robert Gregg, Edward Strack, Paul Glaubke, Robert Burt, and assisted by the 1 and 2, and 3 and -l hours woodworking classes. The swords, spears, and the metal pieces were made by hlr. Schaefer. The elaborate costumes were made and designed by the Art department who, with the assistance of a sew- ing woman, were able to have all the work done at school. The following teachers designed and developed the costumes for the following: Nliss Bard, the Emperor, Nliss Stebbins, the Prince, Mrs. Allen, the Princess and Zelima. The dancers' costumes were designed by hliss Stebbins and executed by hfliss Hirsch and hliss Roberts. The girl attendants' robes were done in like manner. Peasants and beggars wore costumes by hliss Jasper. Miss Kaltz selected music particularly appropriate for the various scenes in the play and for the dancing, which was beautifully given. Miss Abbett had trained the dancers whose steps were very lovely. JIM SCAPE CQOW5 WEGMW six HAT USIC H CP-:AMS X 0191219 A la L .... ......

Zllirahitinmz "No school is a rfal school unless it has traditions." How often have you heard that quoted. f'Tradition" suggests a e-years of service and stability. It makesgone picture moss covered buildings in which pranks of all lsgorts,bstatefly ceremonies, and old time customs ave een eatured. Tech has the traditional buildings, but the school itself is only ten years oldg it has not had much time in which to develop traditions, it has used all of its time and energy simply in growing. But in spite of its lack of age, Tech has traditions, as these histories will prove, so Tech can lay claim to being a real school. seeds The Zfaistutp of Uliecbnital Suite The events by which a beautiful wooded tract of approximately 76 acres has become the per- manent site ofa high school constitute a story filled with historical and legal interest. The preservation of this beauty spot of nature in the heart of Indianapolis and its transformation from a military arsenal to a peaceful high school is certainly a triumph. In 1861 Governor lX1orton established a state Arsenal on this tract for the purpose of supply- ing munitions to Indiana regiments in the Civil iVar. However, on July 11, 1862, Congress passed an act providing for a National Arsenal at Indianapolis. Consequently-"A be- autiful tract of wooded land, one and one-half miles east of the city of Indianapolis, containing 75.14 acres was purchased for 835,000"-as the record says, such was the direct origin of our present Technical High School site. On April 8, 1864, the government took over what was the Indiana Arsenal and immediately began to make improvements on the grounds. The main building, known as the Arsenal or Storehouse, bearing the date 1865, was built first, and the building of the oHicer's residence, artillery building, and powder magazine follow- ed. The barn, the west residence, the guard- house, gateway, and power house were erected from 1869 to 1893. All these buildings were made of the best materials, pressed brick and limestone. The present fine condition of the buildings after years of use is due to the excel- lent materials and workmanship put into them. A After the Spanish-American war the Arsenal declined rapidly until in 1902. it was offered for sale at the price of 8154,000. On March 27, 1903 the property was sold at public auction to five trustees, and the last gun was fired from the Arsenal at sunrise, April 3, 1903. On Novem- ber 8, 190-1, a school ,the lVinona Technical Institute, was established. This organization failed in a few years, however, and a receiver was appointed in March, 1910. At this time, the Board of School Commissioners expressed their wish to conduct a Technical School on this site. hfluch trouble arose in lawsuits, but the judge awarded the property to the Board of School Commissioners to conduct a school on the site. The Supreme Court of Indiana, which had to uphold this decree, did not give final, favorable judgment until lXfIay 22, 1916, now celebrated as Supreme Day. Students had been going to the Technical School since 1912, in more or less disorder, but when the final decree was given the Board of School Commissioners immediately began to make improvements to make Tech a permanent high school. And so our Tech became the great, wonderful school We have now instead of a National Arsenal. Brandt Steele. 0649 oe - Euilhing Growth at Zllietb Tech was originally used as a school for the overflow from the other high schools but it soon became an independent school and grew so fast that it has been almost impossible to construct buildings fast enough to provide for the increas- ingly large enrollment. In 1912 when the old Arsenal grounds were purchased by the School Board there Were, on the estate, but six build- ings suitable for school use, the Barn, the East Residence, the Arsenal, YVest Residence, the Artillery Building, and the Barracks. In the year 1912-13, the first year of Tech's existence, the enrollment was but three hundred forty-seven pupilsg by the year 1916 to 1917 the student body had grown to the size of two thousand twentyg and by 1921-1922 the enrol- lment was over FOUR THOUSAND. Accordingly, it became necessary for the School Board to erect the first new building, the Annex, which was completed in the spring of 1917. This building, having twenty recitat- ion rooms, was originally intended for a shop annex, but at the time it was built, class rooms were in such great demand that it was planned in such a way that it could be used for that pur- pose. However, the fact that it was supposed to become, some day, a shop annex was kept in mind in its construction so that with a minim- um of remodeling, it could become a thorough- ly equipped shop. THE ARSENAL CANNON sr At about the time that the Annex was built the school had added to its six buildings another most important building, the firstlunch room, which gave the students, as well as the faculty, a very desirable place to dine. For several years this building has also served as an audito- rium. For four years the student army grew and expanded until it included in its ranks THIRTY-EIGHT HUNDRED students. The R. O. T. C. boys had to be housed, so they were given a splendid new Armory. About the time that the Armory was completed and ready for use it became known that Tech was to be given more up-to-date, beautiful school build- ings. In 1920 the ground was broken between the Barn and the East Residence, and after a year the NIain building costing very near to 51,500,000 was added to the nine buildings. It included ONE HUNDRED recitation rooms, a new OFFICE, and a HOSPITAL. This building will be used for the teaching of applied science, household arts and drafting. To the west of the quadrangle a 31,000,000 Shops and Gym building was erected. These new buildings have made Tech one of the larg- -est and best housed schools in the country. In addition to our buildings we have our own athletic field. The football season of 1921-22 initiated this 215,000 athletic field, which not only gives to the boys a splendid place to train and to hold meets, but gives to the whole school an open air gathering place. In 1920 the government held the Arsenal grounds and fixtures at only S15-1,000 while the School Board in 1922 estimates the value of Tech in MILLIONS of DOLLARS. Is this not enough to prove that our grand Tech is march- ing on and that some day not far off TECH will be the LARGEST and BEST SCHOOL IN THE LAND? Ferdinand Nferhlich. sees-Q Muilhings ' In the forefront of this historical campus, the buildings erected by the federal government stand as a monument to commemorate the loyal devotion of Indiana to the cause of the Union in the Great Conflict of the sixties. These buildings, once devoted to the manuf- acture of instruments that symbolize destruc- tion, are now dedicated to good will, hearty co-operation, and the arts of peace, found in their present service to our country, in the edu- cation of its youth. Beginning with 1912 these Civil YVar build- ings, by becoming institutions of learning, took on their new aspect. Now we find them used for the following purposes. The Arsenal houses the United Typothetx School of America, the Domestic Art and Com- mercial departments, the library, bicycle room and book store. The Barracks has the Home Economics, science, and music departments. The Artillery building houses the faculty and the student lunch-rooms, the institutional cookery department, the pattern shop, foundry, and shops for building trades. The Barn is the home of the Latin and agri- cultural departments. The east Commandant's residence is used for class purposes. The west Commandantis residence is the headquarters for the hffilitary department and for the school paper, the ARSENAL CANNON. The Guard House is now the Night school office. The Powder lXfIagazine is used for the storage of military supplies. The Electrical building has the electrical shops. In 1916, the Annex, an emergency building used for class purposes and for the mechanical drawing department, was added. In 1920-22, two new buildings and an athle- tic field were added. These complete the first unit in the plans for Greater Tech. The lXIain building houses the officesg the health and hygiene room, laboratories for bota- any, zoology and physiography, the art dep- artmentg a department for trade extension, and class rooms. The Shop building has three sections. CU In the power house is a battery of three boilers, sterling type, 2-100 horse power, and a coal breaker with a capacity of twelve carloads. This plant gives heat, power, and light for the present school system, with enough power for future expansion. C29 The science wing has seven large, modern physics and chemistry laboratories. C35 The centre section has a boy's and a girl's gymnasium, vocational shops in machine shop practice, auto-construction, sheet metal work, forging,and plumbing classes. The athletic field was built by the athletic association without public help, at a total cost, to date, of 515,000 In the preparation of it, twenty-seven hundred yards of dirt were used for the gridiron, and forty carloads of cinders for the one-fourth mile Cinder track which has a two hundred twenty straight-away, thirty- two feet wide. Permanent bleachers, with a seating capacity of five thousand,are built along one side of the field. The entire field is enclosed by a substantial iron fence. 38 THE ARSENAL CANNON The first ear at nb ilaigb bnbunl By the spring of nineteen hundred twelve, hlanual Training High School had become so crowded that the demand for a new high school became imperative. The school board selected the Arsenal grounds, where the Vllinona Trade School had recently been located, as the logical place for the location of the new school. On Friday before school opened, hlr. Stuart, then also principal of Klanual, called a meeting of the teachers of the new high school. Instead of a regular meeting, hlr. Stuart brought the teachers out to the Arsenal grounds. The grounds were beautiful on that autumn day, the grass untrammeled by human feet, formed a background for numerous rose beds, clumps of peonies, and lilac bushes. Flower beds bordered the road from the gate. The buildings on the grounds then were the two residences, used as boarding houses, the artillery building, housing a huge perpetual motion machine, and the barracks, filled with tile and junk. The barn was just as left by the army. In the basement were the stalls for the horses and above those a huge loft filled with hay. The tiny windows which have since been walled up were so covered with grime and cob- Webs that it was almost impossible to look through. The first floor of the Arsenal con- tained the Print Shop, the third, the Pharmacy School, while the second floor was to house the new high school. Vlihat a scene met the eye here! Dirt, lumber, tools, workmen busily putting up partitions to mark off rooms, formed a confused and chaotic picture. It seemed that the high school could not start for weeks. On hflonday morning, September eleventh, one hundred and eighty-three eager boys and girls assembled but found a school without desks, seats, or blackboards. hrlr. Stuart sent them all home and told them to come back in a few days. Technical High School started with three roll rooms A, B, C, now -I, 5, 6, and eight teachers: hir. Anderson, hfliss Binninger, hlr. Hanna, Nliss jasper, lVIiss lVIcCullough, lVIiss Shover, Nlr. Spear, lXfIr. Yenne. The school had eight periods the first year, from eight-fifteen to three o'clock,with lunch for everybody from eleven-thirty to twelve- thirty. Wlhere do you suppose Tech's first "Beanery" was? In the little guard house near the entrance. Here was a small counter where soup and sandwiches were dispensed. VVith soup bowl in one hand and sandwich in the other, the friendly trees offered shade and shelter for the rest of the lunch hour. The faculty ate around an old table in the hall of the second floor of the Arsenal. lThat with Bliss Binninger's inability to peel an orange without blinding hilr. Anderson, lX'Iiss jasper's spilling a bottle of milk in her lap, hfliss hIcCullough's jokes, and Bliss Shover's hearty laugh, those lunch hours were a joyousxoc- casion! The favorite sport of the students during the lunch hour was hunting snakes. It was no uncommon thing to see a dozen snakes brought in as a result of the Nlonday hunt-some alive, some dead. Wlith those that were captured alive, frightened girls were chased all over the campus. Woe be unto the girl or teacher that showed the least fear! The boys took great delight in hiding snakes in their pockets and then producing them at the most unexpected and inauspicious moment. Miss Shover prayed for one hour of St. Patrick, when she found a snake darting his head at her, on opening her desk. The Pharmacy boys who had the floor above loved to play pranks, too. Their favorite sport was to attach a piece of hose to a water faucet, bring the hose through the ceiling and splash! an algebra class was dry no longer! At first Tech had no school paper. The "NIanual Booster" devoted about a column to Tech in every issue. But "Baby Techu Cas- they called usl soon outgrew the single column and started its own paper of which lNIiss Shover had charge. On December ninth, 1912, during roll call time, Edward Owen dressed as a Colonial town crier and ringing a bell, sum- moned all to room 4 with calls of "Hear Ye! Hear Ye!" The first issue of the paper "Hear Ye" was now read. Once a week after this the paper, written entirely by hand, was read to the entire student body. INIr. Stuart was principal of both lNIanual and Technical. He came to Tech once or twice a week. At the Christmas party given by the students every teacher received a gift. Mr. Stuart's was a toy automobile with a note attached expressing the wish that he would use- this machine to come to Tech oftener. Mr. Stuart took the hint and bought himself a Ford. In those days the ofiice was nothing but an old-fashioned roll top desk in the hall of the second floor of the Arsenal. THE IXRSENAL CANNON Q9 An orchestra was organized under the di- rection of lXIr. A. hlontani. Due to lack of room, this orchestra practiced at the homes of the various members. Those of you who re- member the diminutive size of Klr. Klontani will appreciatea telegram sent by him to the school signed, 'LA lXIountain.', The second semester a few more rooms were added to accommodate about one hundred and forty new pupils and five new teachers, of these hlr. Craig and hliss hlcloauglilin are still with us. One of the chief characteristics of the Tech faculty at this time was their capacity for celebrating bithdays and all other holidays. On hfr. Anderson's birthday he was presented with a doll dressed as a chorus girl, because he insisted on calling the girls in chorus, "chorus girlsf' A never-to-be-forgotten event was the "kids" party at Miss Shover's house. Bliss Jasper and hflr. Stark proved unduly obstreperous knocking down each other's houses built of blocks. On another occasion the entire faculty took Miss Binninger to the circus. Her education had been sorely neglected because she had never been to a circus! The crowd went early, viewed all the animals, fed the monkeys, ate peanuts and drank pink lemonade. Again, the faculty visited Taggart's bakery. Here lVIr. Anderson and Miss Binninger dis- tinguished themselves by the number of dough- nuts they ate. lVIr. Anderson even wrapped one up and took it home. Miss Shover be- came corrupted enough to take some crackers from the cracker-barrel and stuff them in her pocket. lNfIiss Jasper and hliss KIcCullough blushed with shame at the greediness of the crowd. Wlhen the faculty went through Lillyls they carried off all kinds of samples, which unfor- tunately were not edible. Miss Binninger had mercy on the hungry crowd and invited them to her house for a spread. They had "delicious" candy stuffed with cardboard. It was April the first! In the spring of 1913 school closed for a few days because of the flood. Wlhen Technical re- opened April the seventh, it had a flood of visitors, due to the fact that Tech had its own water supply, it could reopen before the other city schools. The students decided about this time to enhance the beauty of the grounds still more. Each class took some part of the grounds and either took care of old flower beds or put in new ones. The joy of this was that seeds were planted, rakes and hoes were wielded during class time! No wonder enthusiasm ran high! The school gardens in the northwest part of the grounds were divided into plots IZXIUO feet and distributed among the students. Every evening and Saturdays, boys and girls busily tended their gardens and later had the pleasure of selling their products. One fourth of the entire amount sold went to the school, the other three-fourths belonged to the pupil. Though joy and fun marked the first year at Technical, it was also marked by unusually fine work, sincerity of effort and real achieve- ment along scholarship lines. The Honor Roll ranged from l5.3SQTQ, to 2892,-more than one- fourth of the school on the Honor Roll. The spirit that was developed at Tech the first year would be hard to duplicate any where. It was a spirit of loyalty, industry, co-operation and good fellowship. The friend- ships that have been developed both among students and teachers have lasted to this very day. In spite of hardships, handicaps, diffi- culties, these pioneers in this great educational experiment worked joyously and successfully. Bday the spirit of joy in work remain at Tech- nical always! NI. B, assess Gut iBook Store No story of TECH is quite complete today without some mention of the Book Store. It fills a need that is important. The students may buy almost anything from a text-book to a pen point or paper clasp, without leaving the campus. Each semester the Book Store comes nearer supplying the entire school than it did the semester before, and for that reason the business has grown at a rate even greater than that of the attendance. The Book Store at first was nierely a dis- tributing station for the store at KIANUAL, but like every other department of the school, it was soon a rushing stream out of its banks, and methods were changed to meet the needs. Now we can boast ofa set of records and files that indicate that the Book Store has become not only a vital part of the school's existence, but a real business institution. live can no longer depend on student help alone, but must have an assistant who is on duty from the moment the money is put into the cash drawer in the morning, until cash is balanced at the close of the day. At all times it is here to serve the school. 411 THE ARSENAL CANNON Bu Eau Remember? 1Vay back in 712 when Tech had a guest book? Xivhen white curtains graced the windows of our school? The first lXf'1ay when twenty-five girls and twenty-seven boys wrestled with spades and hoes and had regular gardens on the campus. Wlhen Lehman Holliday was our first yell leader? Gr when the sewing department made all the costumes for the class plays? Wlhen Edward Owen gave a party for the Senior boys? Wionder whose home would hold all the senior boys of the '22 class. How, in 114, the teachers used to celebrate their birthdays-cakes 'n'everything? The CANNONlS first slogan, 'fEverybody Works for the paper"? YVhy not revive it? VVhen Tech had a Parent-Teacher's Asso- ciation? VVhen the tower clock stopped because a bird had built its nest between the hammer and gong? The day the Nature Study Club planted the trees in the old orchard? The first CANNON contribution box which ap- peared in Tower Hall? Vlfhen Tech had no library? The Indianapolis pageant which Miss God- dard's English Class wrote, back in '16? VVhen Roy Magruder was the Tech chicken in the Educational parade in '16? The perpetual motion machine in the ar- tillery building? 1fVhen the agricultural department had an egg show at Tech? VVhen Harriet Kahler " busted out into print" by having a poem "To the Classmen of Tech," printed in the CANNON? When Harold Day and Earl Perkins starred in track? Vvhen there were fifty members on the CANNON staff? VVhen Hazel BarrOw's name appeared on every honor roll? 1Vhen Mr. Stuart said, at the first Com- mencement, "We have special pride in the fact that the diplomas were printed in the school's printing shop and are of original de- sign." Wlieii We journeyed to hfartinsville for the sectional tournament? Qbur jfaeultp The demand for another high school in In- dianapolis was great, and without waiting for the Supreme Court Decision which was pend- ing, Mr. Milo Stuart and eight teachers made it possible for Tech to come into existence. lXIiss hlarie Binninger taught historyg IWiss Shover and 1X1r. Hanna, English, INIiss iXfIcCull- Ough, sewing, lVIiss Jasper, art, Mr. H. H. Anderson, mathematicsg and hir. Spear and Mr. Yenne, shop. The first year was full of trials and tribulations for the faculty and lVIr. Stuart. Nevertheless, they had time for play as well as time for work. In 191-1 the number of students was so large a library was necessary, so Miss Harter became Tech's first librarian. At present she has ,six- teen apprentices and one assistant. In 1916 Miss Farman became the first expression teacher, at present there are two, Miss Kletzing and Miss Fogg. lXfIr. Park intro- duced Public Speaking in 1919, and later assisted Mr. Speicher in advertising. The Eng- lish Department is composed of forty-one teachers with 1VIiss Goddard as head of the department. 1XfIr. Morgan is head of the history depart- ment and supervises fifteen history teachers. In 1918 lXIr. Gorman ushered into the course of study, American Government. Bliss Binninger the first history teacher, is still a favorite among the students. I think the mathematics department must be very important and busy for I have gone to the hlathematics Office, R. 49a, 'forty-eleven' times but alas, I have always found it vacant. From several of the teachers I have learned that there are twenty-nine teachers with 1XfIr. H. H. Anderson, the first Tech math teacher, as head of the department. During the World VVar 1VIr. Anderson was a first lieutenant in the army. VVhile hewas in the service, by his marriage to lyliss Taylor, Tech had its first Tech Wedding. One subject which is of prime importance to a school is Art. Miss Jasper was the first art teacher. The art department boasts of nine teachers and one assistant. German was the language taught by IXIiss Binninger in 1914, but Latin, Spanish, and French are the present languages taught in the school. The French department which is in- complete, has only been in existence since 1918. It has four teachers, one of whom, 1XIiss Jeanne Badaire, is a native French woman. 1XIiss Stone and lVIr. Twineham are chairmen of the Latin department. The teachers of Spanish, another THE ARSENAL CANNON 41 flourishing department, are lX1iss Aldrige, Miss Baker, Miss Padou, Mr. Lageman, and Miss. Shelley. Physical training has been part of the course since 1912. lNIiss Smith is still remembered as the first gym teacher, and an efficient basket ball coach for the girls. lNIiss H. Abbett and Miss lNf1cKenzie are the present gym teachers. Every few weeks we have demonstrations of the excellent work which they are accomplishing. Tech has an excellent music department under the direction of lXfIiss Kaltz, who has been at Tech since 191-1. The first two years Mr. Antonio 1V1ontani came once a week to Tech and taught chorus. Then came Nliss Kaltz. Besides her, the present music teachers are hflr. Percival, hlr. Barker, and the Orlofl Trio, composed of Miss Fern Grloff, violinist, Miss Genevieve Hughel, cellist, lN1iss Lenore Coffin, pianist. Sewing-Ah! that is the subject the girls love, especially when they have such capable teachers as lyliss h1cCullough, the first Tech sewing teacher and the chairman of the sew- ing department. Bliss Church, Miss Barrows, who was in the first sewing class, Miss Murray, Miss Ament and Miss Buschman, who also teaches millinery, are the teachers in this de- partment. They say cooking is the way to a man's heart. Tech has a splendid course in cooking. The girls of Tech have had the privilege of learning new and scientific methods of cooking since the fall of 1914, when Miss Staendahl took charge of both the lunch room and the cooking classes. There are now four cooking teachers with hfiss Drury as chairman of the department. lX4iss Hooker has shown her abil- ity as a cafeteria manager judging from the most delicious lunches we may buy any day. I have talked of the girls but now my thoughts must turn to the boys. hflr. Yenne taught the shop work in 191-1-. Now Mr. Grecne is head of the department. The course has grown un- til there are eight branches of shop work and the number of teachers has increased to twenty- three. The equipment for a Ford Shop has been purchased by the School Board, but will not be in operation until next fall, September 1922. hir. Stair taught the first botany and agri- cultural classes in 191-1. That first botany class had twenty studenits enrolledg the ten botany classes of this yvear have 280 students enrolled, and four teachers, with lN1r. Cox, the chair- man of the department. Nfr. Hugh Ackley started physics and physiology in '19. Now these departments have 21 teachers with hlr. Charles Brasey as head of the physics lepart- ment andrlX'lr. Arthur Hoffman as head of the agricultural and general science department. hlr. Amick has entire control in the chemistry department in the new shop building. This is the first year of its existence, and lX'lr. Amick is the only teacher. Zoology, which was also a 1921 addition to the course, has Miss Sayle and Miss Carringer as its teachers. Mechanical drawing was taught by Mr. Yenne in 1912. Now this department has eight teachers with hflr. Craig as its director. There are about eight subjects in the present Commercial Course which was started in 1913 by hir. Everet Lett. Mr. Gillespie is chairman of the department which has sixteen teachers. lX1iss Struble was the first dean of girls and safely guided many girls over diflicult paths. She was succeeded by Miss Thuemler who has introduced many splendid innovations which have made the life of Tech run more smoothly. lyfiss Hughes, our white gowned nurse, is our Guardian Angel. Her white medicine chest has a remedy for every one of our ailments, es- pecially for the boys who have found her to be a great necessity in their lives. In 1912 it seemed a large undertaking for Mr. Stuart to start a new school. During those first few years he could give personal attention to the teachers and pupils. The teachers of today far outnumber the pupils in 1912. Then there were 183 students, today there are 194 teachers and -1,322 students. This last year has been full of new buildings, muddy paths, many stairs for the students, and papers heaped high for the teachers to grade. hir. Stuart has stood at the helm through the years and now he and the teachers are looking forward to many years of happiness. VVhat will our present Tech be like ten years from now? VVe can only wait and see. Three Cheers for Tech's faculty and lVlr. Stuart. Anna Ridlen. 949494949 just How Old Are They?

Traylor 1 Ulietifs Svthuul Paper 4+ THE ARSENAL CANNON During the ten years of Tech's existence, her publication has made very great progress. VVhen this school was first established, it had no paper, so some of the students subscribed to the Nlanual "Booster." For a while "The Booster" set aside one column for Tech, but later had to take it away, because there was so much 1X1anual news. In addition to that, the Techonians were not entirely satisfied with one column in another schoolis paper. VVhat they wanted was a paper of their own. On 1N'1onday, December 2, 1912, Edward Owen, dressed as a town-crier, read to the school assembled in Room 4, a hand written paper, which was called '4The Hear Ye." Since everyone enjoyed hearing the paper, it was given a place on the programs for 1N'1onday. Cartoons for the paper were posted near the door so that everyone could see them. A staff was soon chosen and Bliss Shover was made adviser for she was the originator of the idea. The next semester a new plan for editing the paper was adopted. The staff had twenty- six members, two from each of the thirteen English classes. Each class edited one number, and all thirteen together put out a number at the end of the semester. The two volumes of the "Hear Ye" contain records of most of the important events which took place during the first year of Tech's history. The paper was truly a complete success. The next semester there were so many stu- dents that they filled two assembly rooms. This fact made it impossible to continue to have the "Hear Ye" read aloud. But there were not enough people to pay for the print- ing of their newspaper. Therefore they had no publication from September, 1913, to Jan- uary, 1914. But they could not stand to be long with- out a paper. On February 20, 191-1 the first printed issue was sold. Of course, the ap- pearance of a real, printed magazine brought with it a contest for a name. Of the one hundred fifty-four suggestions which were received, Ruth VValfred's "The Cannon" was chosen. At 1XIiss Shover's suggestion the word "Arsenal" was inserted. The first two issues had question marks in the place of a name, the third had the name "The Arsenal Cannon" with a large question mark preceding and following it. Each time, the question marks became smaller, until, by the time number six was distributed, they had entirely dis- appeared. No longer was there any doubt, Ruth 1Valfred's suggestion had been chosen. A staff of thirty-four was chosen, and from this number Lois Stone was elected editor. The paper was an experiment, butit proved to be a success, therefore it boomed every other week for the next six years. The magazine volume of number seven was large and beautiful. Since the supreme court had not yet decided that Tech should become permanent, and since there was danger of her being dissolved at any time, 1Y1r. Stuart requested that an anniversary number, con- taining summaries of the school's history, be issued. The cover was ornamented with a beautiful picture of the alumni pin. Inside were many pictures of the campus and of the students, as well as histories of the various organizations. But on hlay twenty-second the supreme court decided that Technical High School fthe vocational schools had not yet been establishedj should be a perma- nent institution. From year to year the CANNON grew steadily, both in size and in the number of its subscribers. Beginning with volume five, 1X1iss 1Vilson became adviser. She was succeeded by 1V1iss Sengenberger in September 1919. In 1920 the CANNON was made a weekly paper. This semester, this, the tenth anniversary number, is issued. It is to be the best and largest number of the CANNON that has ever been printed. The paper has grown very rapidly in the last two years, now over two thousand people read it every week. Our paper has never been dependent, even partially, on advertisements, but has always been backed and supported by the students, and the alumni, who still like to hear from their alma mater, and it has always been printed as much as possible by the students who are taking the printing course. These are features of which any paper should be proud. It is obvious that Tech's school paper has shown marked progress in the nine years of its existence. May it continue to grow during the rest of its life as it has grown in the first decade. John L. Spratley. 90000 Jessie Davis-a musical scholar. Elva Davis is a coming hletropolitan Prima Donna.

Now this advanced, the lunchroom was enhanced By a startling and fine acquisition, ,Twas a new silver set, mighty fine you can bet, And new dishes and a brand new ambition. 1917 1Vhile this was going full tilt, there was being built On the Artillery a nice new addition, And this I will say Qthough 'twas not in my dayj 1Vas the lunchroom's new pet ambi- tion. 1922 And now just look here, at the start of this year The lunchroom just had to expand, So the shop building was taken and fixed up and shaken To make room for the long line to stand.

And surely there is no finer lunchroom in the country than ours here at Tech. Visitors are always impressed by it, and consider it an excellent indication of our school's size and importance. The first pupils of Tech did not have the ad- vantages of a large and improved lunchroom as we have today. Their dining room was in the Guard House, which is located near the entrance of the grounds at Klichigan Street. The management of this lunchroom was in charge of a day watchman and his wife. As there were not many students and teachers, there were only two or three tables, one candy counter, and one lunch counter. The food was cooked in the small room off to the south side, In a few years the students and faculty in- creased, and this meant a larger lunchroom, 46 THE ARSENAL CANNON so it was moved to the basement of the Barracks. This lunchroom was under the management of hfliss Drury. The third lunchroom is the one we now call Hthe old lunchroom." lt seats about eight hundred students a period. The fourth lunch- room is our new one. Both the old and the new lunchrooms make up Tech's cafeteria which is under the management of lVIiss Hooker. The following is the amount of food that our cafeteria sells each day: from ten to twelve bushels of potatoes, two hundred pies, two hundred pounds of meat, six hundred half- pint bottles of milk, from eighty to ninety loaves of bread, and from ninety to one hun- dred gallons of ice cream. Everything sells for three or five cents a dish. This cafeteria requires the employment of fifty-seven students and twenty-nine women. About three thousand five hundred pupils lunch in Techls cafeteria each day. The teach- ers have a separate lunchroom at the north end of the new lunchroom which is very con- venient for them. Edward Koskey. QQQQQ lust Qflustums The original idea concerning class colors was to have each class choose only one color and to use that with cream. The boys used to wear a knot of ribbon on their coats to distin- guish them as seniors while all of the girls wore middy ties of the class color. It wouldn't be a bad idea to revive this custom. Each Senior class used to have arm bands in the class colors. There used to be two gavels,one light colored and one of mahogany. Thus, each Senior class could have one. The outgoing class would present the mahogany gavel to the incoming class at the class day exercises, and the in- coming class would, in turn, present the light colored gavel to the semester class just form- ing. These gavels and boxes were made by lWr. Craig. CANNONS used to be distributed through the roll-rooms by the CANNON agents. One of the most interesting customs was Clean-up Day. This would happen every spring. On the day selected, the tower bell would ring, all classes would be dismissed, and each class would clean up the part of the campus previously allotted to it. Everyone would work fast and furiously to see who could get the biggest pile of rubbish. Then, at the stroke of the bell, all pupils would scurry back to class and peace would reign once more. The ffuuking Eepartment The first cooking class was organized in the fall of 1914. It was a small class, meeting in the new laboratory in the Barracks building and taught by the lunchroom director. The work was almost entirely the preparation of foods for the lunchroom. By the fall of l915,there were two classes of about eight members each. Those were still taught by the lunchroom director, but the foods were prepared individually, rather than for the lunchroom. By mid-year a student assistant was necessary. In February, 1917, the cooking department was separated from the lunchroom, and hfliss Drury came to take charge. Atwo,year's course was planned for the first year: a general cooking course. The advanced classes fin a laboratory in the old lunchroom's abandoned kitchenj worked strenuously on problems of the conservation of foods. About this time, too, the home cooking classes CCooking HID were organized. These classes, in groups, now as then, have planned, bought, prepared, and served meals. hlany teachers have taken advantage of these meals, served in a quiet dining room,on pretty china, and linens, and entertained by a host and hostess. By the fall of 1919, the department had grown to require three full-time teachers, so lXliss Huffington and Bliss hlcDonald joined the faculty. The work of the conservation classes had changed to more specific inten- sified training, making each girl an intelligent, skillful, dependable cook. These classes CCook- ing IVJ fill orders, and are kept busy making pastry, cakes, salads, breads, sandwiches, in fact, anything. They are almost a delicatessen shop. The fall of 19217, hfliss Drury organized an institutional cooking class. The laboratory, to be equipped as an institutional kitchen, is back of the new lunchroom kitchen, so that these classes can eventually take care of the faculty dining room. Due to difficulty in the transportation, the equipment did not arrive on schedule, so the institutional cooking class discontinued. Now the equipment is here, and these classes will be organized in the fall. The present laboratories in the Barracks are to be remodeled this summer. The din- ing room and kitchen in the basement will be moved to the first fioor. This will make the department much more attractive and will allow for larger classes. THE ARSENAL CANNON 47 The first Iuhs anim Qwganigatiutts Since the interest and life of every high school is centered in diligent study combined with recreation, it was only natural that this grow- ing school should form some clubs and organ- izations. Therefore the students, with the assistance of the faculty, organized clubs which, though of little importance then, have gained considerable recognition throughout the years of Tech's existence. The first Latin Club was organized on lXIarch 17, 1913 in Room 2-1. The colors decided upon were purple and gold and "Esse quam videri" CTO be rather than to seemj was the motto. The life of the club terminated in a picnic where there were purple and gold tablecloths, and even the eggs were colored purple and yellow. In the spring of 1913 the students organized a club to study the birds, fiowers, and trees on our campus and to take hikes into the country. On some occasions the students met under the archway before the first period and tramped campus jungles in search of new specimens. The first chorus of Technical High School under the direction of hflr. lhlontani occupied the first five rows in Room 20. During the first term under Mr. lXIontani's direction, Tech tried to organize a band with eighteen members. The practice, however, was never sufficiently good to warrant public playing. A second and some- what similar attempt marks the effort during the second term. In the fall of 1914, Miss Kaltz, proving the old adage that 'fthe third time is a charm,"organized a successful band of twenty-four members who most willingly assisted in Tech's progress, thereafter. The debating league of Technical High School organized in November, 1915. With the aid of lX'Ir. Anderson, the members prepared several good programs consisting of speeches and of debates on important current questions. The Poultry Club was organized in the spring of 1915 by Mr. Stair. A notice was posted on the bulletin board to the effect that all wish- ing to join would meet in the house. At the first meeting a program was given on the care and feeding of chicks from the first day up to twelve weeks of age. The Tech VVireless Club was organized dur- ing Tech's third year. The construction of the receiving instruments was started at this time. The year the set was finished an aerial was stretched between the VVater Tower and the Barracks. Its length and height made it one of the largest aerials in the state. Cn the Friday before Christmas, 1912, the thirty members of the German Club and their friends had their first party. The faculty,too, shared in the fun. From a large, brilliantly lighted Christmas tree, the teachers received their gifts. lXfIr. Stuart was the proud recipient of a well known make of auto ften-cent store brandi guaranteed to run two feet without wind- ing . He appreciated the spirit in which it was given, despite the faults of the machine. Plenty of ice-cream and cake, decorated with holly, proved to be a graciously accepted part of the program. These various clubs were improved during the following years of Tech, until now the enrollment of some of them is so large that many students are refused entrance. Ive owe our thanks, for the clubs and organizations of Technical High School, today, to the student body and faculty of yesterday, whose patient efforts paved the way for the successful organiz- ations of today. Rebecca Sweetland. 049454949 be attire btuhp lub Tech has always been proud of her wonder- ful location. The little stream flowing through the grounds, the woodlands, and the open grassy areas, all lend variety to the landscape and make it a suitable place for many species of birds and wild liowers. Xiiide awake to the wonderful opportunities of such a location, lXIr. Stuart has always selected the teachers of the faculty with a View to the development of all these possibilities. In the spring of 1918, after several talks with Kfr. Stuart, hfr. C. F. Cox announced a meeting for all interested in organizing a Nature Study Club as a means of promoting a greater interest in the natural beauties about our school. All that spring about twenty- five pupils and teachers met together once each week and held round-table discussions about the trees, the birds, and the flowers of the campus. Early morning hikes were often taken upon the campus before school. The next spring these activities were dis- continued for lack of some one to assume the leadership in the work while hfr Cox was in the army. In the spring of 1920 the club took on a more permanent form as evidenced by the election of the following officers: Anna C. Gardner, presidentg Harry Ice, vice president, 48 THE ARSENAL CANNON Yivian Stevens, secretary-treasurer. Regular meetings were held once a week and long hikes on Saturdays were part of the weekly program. The membership increased to about forty, before the end of the term. On account of their programs of classes the officers who were elected in June could not serve the next fall, and the interest lagged until in the spring the following officers were elected: G. K. hfIcKittrick, president, Vernon Smith, vice-president, Sue Anna Engle, sec- retary, and Lucille Pritchard, treasurer. As the active members, now numbering more than fifty, wished to be recognized on the cam- pus, the colors of the bluebird, blue and burnt orange, were chosen. In 1920 the club kept a Bird and Flower Calendar which contained the names of ninety species of birds and sixty species of wild flowers. This calendar was posted on the old office building, of which we still see the remains on our campus. This year it contains about one hundred species of birds and seventy species of wild flowers. This spring the Nature Study Club, assisted by the botany classes, made it possible for Tech to have a wild flower display with fifty- five earliest wild flowers of lXfIarion County represented. Afterwards, the club and the botany classes planted the flowers on the camp- us, thus increasing the number of wild flowers and beautifying the grounds. The Wlild Flower Show was visited by all the botany and science classes, several hundred other students and teachers of the school, besides many parents and a group from the Indianapolis Teacher's College. The purposes of the Nature Study Club are: to protect and preserve the wild flowers grow- ing on the campus, to label one of each species of trees which are on the campus, and in gen- eral to foster in the pupils of Tech a love for the birds, the flowers, and the trees. It is possible to make our campus one of the most beautiful spots in Indianapolis if the students, the teachers, and the friends of Tech will co- operate in preserving the Tech Grounds.

A more modern statement would be to the effect that two heads are better than one. Wlebster defines organization as the consolida- tion brought about to accomplish greater things. The public speaking department, realizing this, organized,-the first class in the history of the school to have a student organization. In the fall of 1920, the first public speaking class of Tech elected the following officers: president, Sam Ashby, vice-president, Leonard Earhart, secretary-treasurer, Pauline Gallant- ly. These held office for the duration of the semester. The purpose of the organized class, was, according to their constitution, to acquaint themselves with parliamentary law and to promote school activities. The following semester there was again a single public speaking class. Its constitution was fundamentally the same as that of the preceding class. This latter class, however, believing that the officers should not hold office for so long a period, accordingly divided the semester into three administrations. The pres- idents of this class in order of their election were George Scott, Karl Fischer, and John Moore. The popularity and fame of the public speak- ing department increased to such an extent that the next semester-the fall of 1921-it was necessary to organize two classes. Kenneth Thorne was the first president of the fifth hour class, while Sherwood Blue held the same office in the seventh hour class. Gowdy Sunderland and Dick hlills succeeded Kenneth Thorne, and Sherwood Blue's successors were Leonard E. Pearson and James Day. The following semester-that is to say, the semester that we have just completed-Public Speaking was made a two semester course. There are for werel three first-semester classes and two second-semester. Of these former classes, the first hour class elected as its presi- dent, Ted Bedell, Harry Hungate hz-ld sway in the second hour class, while Harold Harris was president of the seventh hour class. The second-semester classes have easily become the most popular classes at Tech. The whole school listens when someone tells of George Strassler's convincing speech and force- ful argument displayed in a debate in the fourth hour class or of the attempt on the part of James Bell to impeach the secretary of the fifth hour class. At the beginning of the semester, the fourth hour class, feeling that two presidents a semester was enough for any self-respecting THE ARSENAL CANNON +0 public speaking class, elected the famous Doyle Jessup to rule over them. He was followed by George Strassler. The fifth hour class adhering to the principle of the more Cpresidentsj the merrier, according- ly chose Sherwood Blue to deliver the initial inaugural address. He was followed by james Pebworth, who in turn was succeeded by none other than Irwin Egan. lXIr. Egan had attain- ed fame as treasurer under the preceding administration. These second-semester classes need never be accused of being lifeless and uninteresting, for, as a retiring secretary was heard to remark, "If you have a grudge against anybody, elect him secretary of the fifth hour Public Speaking Class." Among the school projects carried on by the Public Speaking department since its origin are: the Courtesy Campaign, the Clean-up Campaign, the sale of football, basketball, baseball and track tickets, the advertising of the Senior plays, and the light operas, and "The 1XrIaid and the lX1iddy',. Thus the Public Speaking department has assisted the school and broadened the education of its students, and thus will it continue to do so until the well known, "hir, President, I move we adjournv, is heard for the last time. james Pebworth 047000 The ifaisturp nf Qbur Qhrrbestra Eight years ago one of the most useful and important organizations of our school, the Technical Orchestra, was founded. Under the fine directorship of Bliss Elizabeth Kaltz the orchestra has played for every senior play and every commencement. In addition to these events it has performed at banquets, Class Day exercises, Arbor Day exercises, Print Shop commencements, and at the yearly alum- ni gatherings. The numerous difficulties encountered and overcome by this loyal body of devoted Techonians furnishes an interest- ing history. The organization was effected by Bliss Kaltz and a few musical enthusiasts, on the third floor of the Arsenal building in November, 191-1. For nearly two years they met here after class hours. At that time every hour of the school day was taken for gymnasium work or athletics, so the orchestra had to find quarters elsewhere. There being no suitable place for rehearsing they met in Room 65. Here a majority of the members had to stand between the desks during rehearsals. The conditions under which the members worked were cer- tainly not conducive to good playing but nevertheless the orchestra progressed admir- ably. In january 1921, they moved to the liioodruff Club House, meeting there through the semester. In the fall of 192l,ll'oodruff Club being no longer available for school purposes, the members again used Room 65, until a locker room in the Klain building was finished. As the girls' Glee Club met in the room the hour before the orchestra assembled much of the rehearsal time was lost in changing the seating arrangements and distributing the music and stands. Fortunately, when the lockers for the room arrived, a room on the second floor of the Artillery building was found suitable for a band and orchestra room. There, surrounded by the machinery, the or- chestra has been rehearsing daily. On several occasions the Technical orchestra has joined forces with the hlanual and Short- ridge orchestras. The first concert of the three high schools was given in the State House during the State Centennial in 1916. The second program was presented during the war at Caleb Klills Hall, Shortridge. VVhen the three high schools graduated and received their diplomas in the Coliseum during the celebration of Indianapolis' one-hundredth anniversary, a third program was presented. The junior Orchestra was organized by Xliss Kaltz in February, 1922, the purpose of its organization being to supply players for vacancies that occur in the advanced orchestra through removal and the graduation of mem- bers. Besides the value in officiating at public functions and so helping to popularize our school, it has been of inestimable value to the student members themselves. Its repertoire has been built mainly of standard and classi- cal music, although at banquets, occasionally some of the better class of popular music has been played. This has given an elevated tone to the musical life of the school. hliss Kaltz has, for a long time, had dreams of a symphony orchestra for Technical. In- dications are that it may not be many months until the vision is realized. The school has recently acquired a double bass, two cellos, an oboe, a bassoon and a French horn. Pupils are now studying these instruments and so Technical will have a symphony orchestra, as soon as the latest acquisitions are profi- cient enough to be of value. Then Tech will have better reason than ever to bow in gratitude for the services that the musical students render to her glory. If u L llll ll l l l l llllll ff ' -F R ffiif' fl-S+' 'll Com Avml Lu woon The rapid growth of the vocational depart- ment of Technical High School is quite worthy of notice. This department has always ex- panded in proportion to the growth of the rest of the school, and the eiiiciency of the training received in the shop has always been as high as possible. The divisions of the vocational department which began with the founding of the school in nineteen-twelve are the wood-working depart- ment, the foundry, the printing school, and the pattern making shop. At first there was only one teacher in each of these departments, some having only one and some two classes each day. The wood-working department is a continua- tion ofthe manual training, or shop work which is given in the grade schools and also includes a general course in carpentry and the care of tools used in wood-working. The printing school was. and is, a complete four-year's course which teaches almost every type of ordinary book and newspaper printing in existence. A pupil can complete this course and take a posi- tion as a master printer capable of doing work anyone might want done. Thus the vocational department has given one a thorough training in the subject in which he interested. An interesting comparison can be made by nineteen- has been consulting the records of the years twelve and nineteen-seventeen, thus including a five years period. During this time the auto shop and the machine shop had been added to the curriculum at Tech. The former is a course wherein all mechanical parts of an automobile or gasoline engine are studied and explained. Sometimes cars belonging to private families were repaired in this shop, free of charge, for want of material on which to work. This shop was first located in the lower floor of the south end of the Artillery building and was always the scene of dis-assembled automobiles and engines. The machine shop which taught the boys to make gears, shafts, odd pieces of mach- inerv was to be found on the second floor of the Artillery building. The whole school, after nineteen-seventeen, gradually has grown in size and as it has grown, more vocational departments have been added to it. The last to be organized are the electrical shop and the agricultural department. The electrical shop is located in the "electrical" building, and in it is taught a general course in electricity: construction of electric motors, transformers, and controllers, wiring systems covering all practical knowledge of electricity. The agricultural school has its class rooms in the East Residence, and the land used for garden purposes is near Tenth Street and the east boundary of the campus. Garden supplies have been furnished the school's cafeteria at cost. At one time the equipment included a gasoline tractor and regular plows and harrows, such as are used on a farm. A great many students take this course, and one who masters it receives a full knowledge in rotation of crops, fertilizers, activities of bacteria, and properties of the soil. At present the vocational department includes all above mentioned divisions but with most of them grown to several timis their former size. The wood working department now has five teachers as compared with one at its beginning, the foundry has one. The print shop has one superintendent, one general teacher and several mechanics and sub-teachers, the sheet metal shop has one teacherg the Auto Shop has four instructors, the agricultural department has one: and the electrical department has six. Tech is said to have the best vocational school of any in the United States because of the var- iety of subjects offered and the fullness and completeness of each course taught. Her department is also said to be the one which has increased most rapidly in the number of stu- dents attending it.

The first class in a subject of scientific nature was a class in botany organized during the spring term of 191-L with hlr. Sanders as instructor. VVhen the fall term came, Blr. Stair took the place of hlr. Sanders, and in the spring term of 1915 he taught, in addition to botany, classes in horticulture and soils. These subjects gained in immediate favor because of the excellent opportunities afforded to study plant life at first hand in the woods of our own campus. Their headquarters were in the old building known as the East Residence. ln lune 1915, the classes were three in number but because of the limited space and adverse conditions they were limited to two during the next yearg then hir. Hoffman began to teach botany, and hilr. Stair, agricultu'e. The botany classes continued for sometime in this cramped condition and in 1917 the number of classes that could be accommodated was only four with about eighty students. However, when the plans for greater Tech were submitted and the construction of the new main building was begun the period of oppression was drawing to aclose. ln Sept- ember and by the second term of occupancy the classes in their new quarters grew to include about two hundred and seventy-five students and four teachers. They now have large labora- tories for study and lecture rooms where it is possible to have demonstrations and illustrated talks. Their equipment is fairly complete but already they are seriously overcrowded. As was mentioned above, horticulture was taught in the spring term of 1916 and agri- culture in the fall of 1916, by hlr. Stair. The next year lXIr. Hoffman began teaching agriculture and he has continued to do so. His headquarters are in the East Residence. The boys of that class have had some real farming experience right here at school and, in addition, have assisted in the agricultural end of the landscaping done in connection with the completion of the new building. Physics was first taught in September, 191-1. Prior to this time a course was offered in elect- rical shop that included, among other things, instruction in elementry electricity. Hugh Achley was the first teacher, coming from Manual Training High School, two or three days each week. ln September 1915, he was transferred to Technical and, together with XV. S. Koontz, taught five classes. For several years the class remained in the Barracks with a fairly good stock of equipment and two laboratories. ln the winter of 1921-22 they, with the exception of the advanced classes, moved to the new Shop building, completed shortly after the Blain building. Here they have spacious laboratories and additional equipment. The classes have increased in number and size until there are about four hundred and thirty-five students and seven teachers. Physiography had its beginning in the spring of 1915 with Hugh Achley as instructor. That fall hfr. Stoneburner taught it. After hlr. Stoneburner left Bliss Dutton came to take charge and under her guidance the course has become quite popular. Needless to say, so many students have wished to know about this old world of ours that several other teachers have been drawn into this department. ln September, 1921, the classes were moved from the Barracks to the Kfain building. Physiology began in September, 1915. Kliss Conover and Bliss Struble taught it in the building now known as the East Residence. These classes, like those in other sciences, increased in size and are now located in the new hfain building. Since the beginning, physiology has somewhat widened its scope. Besides these classes there are classes in Home Nursing and First Aid. These are more for students who may not go to college and yet would like to have a practical elementary knowledge of health preservation. Bliss Hughes, a graduate nurse, besides being instructor for these classes, attends to emergency cases that from time to time occur among the students. The subjects, zoology and chemistry, the most recent acquisitions, were first taught in September, 1921. Kliss Sayle was the first zoology instructor. Her classes, in contrast with those of some of the other sciences, were not handicapped by limited space or lack of equipment. The laboratories and lecture rooms which are located in the Xlain building adjoining those of botany are large and well equipped. The chemistry classes were organized in September, 1921, as mentioned above but were not as fortunate as the zoology classes F 52 THE ARSENAL CANNON when it came to laboratories and equipment. For one term Xfr. Amick taught three classes in the West Residence, without laboratories or equipment. But, in spite of unfavorable conditions, the course proved very popular. 1n February, when the new Shop building was opened, the chemistry department gather- ed together its few pieces of equipment and moved into spacious quarters on the second floor of this building. Now, in place of one small room, the depart- ment boasts of several well equipped labora- tories, lecture rooms, a store room, and an office for Klr. Amick. Roydon Van hfeter. 00000 ibbpsiral Training Ten years ago, the physical training depart- ment for girls was organized under the direct- ion of Bliss Smith. She met her classes twice a week, in the old gym familiarly called Splinter Hall. After two years of part-time work at Tech, lyfiss Smith left us and from then on, devoted all of her time to hlanual. Mfrs. Gilmore, known then as lyfiss Patterson, came to take charge at Tech. Under her guidance several interesting and beautiful entertainments were given on the campus. VVhen lyliss Patterson decided to bid good- bye to Tech, Nfiss Abbett left the history department and took charge of the physical training. Under her direction the department has grown way beyond bounds. Classes have become so large that it has been necessary not only to have another teacher, Miss McKenzie, but also to have several athletic assistants. Miss Vandivier coached basketballand taught one class,during the year 1920-'2l. lNfissHowe has assisted in the coaching of basketball for two years. Besides her work in physical training, lgfiss hIcKenzie has charge of the indoor base- a 1. During the last five years Nfiss Abbett has staged many attractive programs which have displayed the skill of her pupils. She has taken an active part in all of the pageants, and at every class play and opera the work in her classes has been apparent. This department has become a very popular one at Tech, with the new gymnasium, greater results, if possible, will be obtained next year. 006045 Two butterflies, caught in Peru and de- scribed as "rarest of all hforphosfi were recent- ly sold in London for 55135. The Qlinmmernial Bepartment Can you imagine the large, hustling, busi- ness-like commercial department situated in the East Residence with just one class of thirty, and that lonely class, studying Stenography I? That would certainly be a sight for sore eyes now-a-days. 1Yell, nevertheless, that is the way it was- at least, that is what they say concerning the conditions back in the year 191-1. A little later two more classes were added to the list. These consisted of typewriting and bookkeeping. The methods used at that time with regard to teaching would probably be termed unreasonable in comparison with the modern methods. One teacher taught two classes at the same time. She taught one class in one end of the hall, in typewriting, and an- other in the other end of the hall, in stenog- raphy. I guess they decided that the teacher did not have to train for track so they moved the classes to the first floor in two adjoining rooms that were probably used for the library and drawing rooms of said palatial mansion before it was made into a school. This helped matters a little but at that the teacher taught both classes, only this time she could stand be- tween the doors and train her ears to catch the word signs and phrases of the Shorthand class and her eyes to watch the struggling typists. Later, another teacher was added and this simplified matters considerably. VVe kept advancing until now we occupy the third floor of the Arsenal, in rooms with walls tinted with coal smoke and radiators that often pop off like a steam engine, and added to this are the strains of jazz from the Gym. Our number at present is about fifteen hun- dred students and fifteen commercial teachers. This includes some duplication, as students often take two or more commercial subjects. Graduates have gone forth from this de- partment, of whom all Tech feels proud. They may be found in many lines of business:railroad, insurance, law, real estate offices, and in govern- ment positions. They have gone out to keep the world going and to make a name for Tech. Wie are back of them in every way and hope they feel that the latch string is always in sight at Tech.

L 54 THE ARSENAL CANNON The Ulbreah uf ima As we sat out under the spreading maple tree on the campus of "Our Tech, "our conver- sation became incoherent, a fact which showed that our thoughts were drifting away. Finally, conversation died away and a quiet drowsiness crept over us. Suddenly, a large figure loomed up in front of us and roused our sleepy selves, until we coi'l.l, at least, obtain a clear vision of the stranger. VVe saw that he was clad in a robe of pure white, bordered with beautiful green, at once we knew him to be connected with "Our Tech." We listened with full attentiveness as he broke the dead silence that had settled around us. "In my left hand," he began, HI hold the thread of the past, in my right hand, the thread of the present and future. As I unravel the thread of the past I weave it into the present and future, and Time will talk with youf, So saying, he pulled a small thread with his right hand and as the spool in his left hand unwound, a wee green elf, who seemed to have been hiding behind the strangerfs robe, ap- peared. "Fm the youngest and most abused years in the life of Tech's sewing department. To begin with, during these first two years the department was confined to one room in which there were but four sewing-machines, no fitting room, and, worst of all, no mirrorf' The little fellow shook with laughter as he said, "I was just wondering how on earth the poor girls got their complexions on straight without a mirror." We laughed too, but he must have realized that we did not care for his jokes be- cause he became serious again as he continued, "Of course there was no need for advanced clas- ses as the school had no one but freshmen in it the Iirst year, so in 1912 there were just three classes in Sewing I with a total enrollment of sixty. lWiss .lXf1cCullough, who is still with us, and as faithful now as then, was the first and only teacher. '4During the next two years, conditions were not much better,"and as he spoke he seemed to grow. 'We noticed that our tall, strange friend was pulling the thread and we realized that we were to hear of the happenings of the years 1914 and 1915. 'fBecause of the need of teachers, we turned to lylanual for help and just as a true sister, for she was our sister, she responded readily. She gave us Miss Payne who taught some sewing classes during this period. uThings began to look brighter for the department in 191-1 for it was given another room, Room 10. hlore materials were added. Nlillinery was taught by hfliss Vi'illiamsg cost- ume design by Kfiss Bard. As the classes grew, so the faculty grew in proportion. Nliss Florence Byrd was added, and in 1915 Klisses Josephine Davis and Nlildred Bevins came to join the ranks. Miss Laura Baner was called upon when the tide grew too strong for the regular teachers. "In 1916 1VIiss iXIcCullough had a leave of absence for one year, so lfliss Baner took her place, and was aided by the hfisses Davis, Bigelow, and Murray, and in February, 1917, by Miss Buschmanf' As he spoke, he grew still taller, our mutual friend was still pulling the thread. Vile were traveling through the years, 1916 and 1917. "The department was still confined to rooms 9 and 10. The students seemed to be coming in armies now. Miss McCullough came back in 1917 and Nliss Church, hfliss Stilz and IXfIiss Webb were added to the sewing department faculty for the school. The latter reorganized the whole department, making sewing a three year course in which Clothing I was included. She taught some vocational sewing classes for the women of the community. lV1iss lylurray left for the cooking department in February, 1918" The thread was being pulled, the little fellow in green was much larger than an elf now, and we listened as he continued to reveal the years of 1918 and 1919. "The sewing department was moved to the third fioor of the Arsenal into rooms 16 and 17. The teachers now were Nlisses 1WcCullough, Buschman, Church, and 1XfIrs. Percival, who taught part time." g The string was again pulled, and the lad, Time, informed us boastfully that he had grown much in 1920 and 1921. He told us that more and more accommodations were coming to light. In 1920 he told us hdiss Murray came back to the department and hliss Barrows was welcomed. Room 15 was granted the department. VVe were wondering what he would say next when the thread was pulled and we saw that this time the spool that had been in our friend's left hand was empty and and had fallen to the ground. I-Ie was winding the thread onto the spool in his right hand. Time was now a good sized boy of ten. "The year, 1922, was the department' THE ARSENAL CANNON tenth birthday as well as the birthday of the entire school. It now occupies rooms 7, 8, and 9, 10. The enrollment of the department in- cluding the girls in costume and clothing has been five hundred ninety-five. There have been classes in hlillinery, in Costume, and in Clothing. The sewing faculty now numbers six and includes Miss Church Miss Murra 7 Y? Miss Barrows, hfliss Ament, hfliss hf1cCullough, and Miss Buschinan. "The materials are more adequate, but still the department cries and begs for more room. Its students ever increase in number." VVe noticed that the boy .was gone and the stranger himself was addressing us. G'The department has beautiful dreams of our Greater Tech 9 when no department will need to cry for more room, but each shall smile and say, 'The first ten years of my life were sweet and I shall always have pleasant memor- ies of the years that 1 suffered so of growing pains, that our Tech might be the truly wonderful school it has always been, is now, and always will be., " And so our dream was ended.

However, since this is to be a resume of the small part this department has played in the first ten years of the life of this great school, we must content ourselves with recounting yesterdays tasks. On the day that the new Tech opened oHici- ally, the Art section opened just as ofiicially with one room, one teacher and four classes. Next semester, if ten teachers and fifteen rooms can hold forty classes, the officials will have nothing to worry about. But here we are talking in the future again. Although not listed in the archives, rumor has it that on the very first day of school, a request came in to make a costume for the new infant,"The Spirit of Techf' Since then, this enterprising youngster has attained a wardrobe second only to Queen Elizabeth. No one in the present department can rem- ember the first pageant for to hark back means to peer through a maize of two thousand cos- tumes covering characters ranging from 6'The Prince of Pilsonwto "Syncopation" and back again. However, a few of the bright spots gleam through the shadows and the remem- brances attending the production of some of the dramatic projects of this school have made the efiort well worth while. The pageant of 1915 was one that will stand as a high mark of achie- vement and a thing of beauty for a long time to come. The June, 1920 class play "PrunellaH established a precedent which cannot be permit- ted to fall. In these years, not all the efforts of the department faculty have been expended on pro- jects of the type mentioned. A strong course of study has been developed. Primarily, Art is a culture subject but treated as an academic, it becomes almost valueless. Art is like the ivy which needs the bare wall to cling to until it can spread in the radiance and glory of perfection. Art thrives on co-ordination and with the great opportunity for co-ordination in the ARSENAL TECHNICAL SCHOOLS, there is no occasion to wonder at any achievements to date. The thing to do is to keep an eye on the future. U' -f Eli ID' . - ilk- 5, ll a tif From the earliest days of lndianapolis, when our campus was outside the city limits, the name "The Arsenal Grounds " has naturally carried with it suggestions of things military, of sentries pacing their posts, of companies of soldiers marching and counter-marching. It was obvious, then, that when, in 1912, Technical High School was started, Tech- onians would sooner or later enjoy some form of military training. But not until 1918 did We have training which was recognized by the school authorities as part of the regular school curriculum. True, there were the '6Arsenal Guardsf, but they were only an organization of boys drilling in 1Voodrulf Place and receiving no credit officially. "fa f ,K if ,Y +5 .' 'f 43,13 -. W' nj?

Hardin as military training instructor, in Sep- tember 1918, after much agitation pro and con. Captain Hardin immediately organized the Cadet Corps and instruction started on September 16, 1918. One period daily was given to the training. The cadets drilled three times Weekly and studied military history twice weekly. The training was compulsory and the cadet received office credit for it. Then on April 7, 1919, Lieutenant-Colonel Westmoreland, U. S. A., came to Indianapolis as chief of R. O. T. C. instructors, accompanied by lV1ajor Perry. Soon after-April 14, to be exact-came Captain Miller. Our late in- structor, Sergeant Amy, arrived lvlay 2 to assist Captains Hardin and lvliller. With so many good instructors our Cadet Corps, then an R. O. T. C. unit, could not but be of the highest grade. One disadvantage, which was later removed, was the ruling made May thirtieth that cadets must buy their own uni- forms. The uniform, as will be remembered, was then horizon blue in color and differed greatly from the present O. D. uniform. In the summer of 1919 the first summer camp was held at Camp Custer. Sixty boys from Tech attended. 297- .., i G64 H. S. C. Cn August twenty-ninth, news was heard that 0. D. uniforms would be supplied to the students free of charge, and on September eighteenth the uniforms arrived and were is- sued. Campaign hats and shoes were among the equipment issued to the students. 1Vith the free clothing every boy taking hi. T. could have a uniform, and so the corps was improved by being made a uniformed body. On Nlay 30, 1920, Captain Miller was trans- ferred. A regimental review was held, lXfIay THE ARSENAL CANNON 57 nineteenth, at which Captain Ira Smith, lVar Department inspector, said Indianapolis high schools had the best R. O. T. C. units in the United States. The usual camp was held at Camp Custer, many Techonians attending. li'-YW.: . ugly , ,, 1,..,,,, 4 , ...., -.,- .

Then, on July 25, 1921, Captain Edwards arrived to command our unit. There was no summer camp in 1921, due to a reduced appropriation by Congress for training camps. Training started as usual in September, 1921, but at the end of that month Sergeants Russell, Amy, Hulse, Everett, and VVeaver were transferred, leaving Captain Edwards, Sergeant-Major Short,and Sergeant Pruett as our instructors in military science. In the spring came Captain 1NIacIntosh and Sergeant Ylrolff, completing our present staff of instructors. Thus our corps has grown from the nucleus formed by 1NIr.hIorgan to the present well- drilled organization that it is. Wiilliam lNIcDaniel.

Ha4ven't we much to be thankful for then, that there has never been such a feel- ing abroad at Tech? The history of music at Tech is intensely in- teresting. It started away back in 1913, when hIr. lfontani was the director of a chorus which consisted of about twenty members. In those days it met in what is now known as 'cSplinter Hall," on the third floor of the Arsenal. hIr. hIontani's attention was divided between Tech and hfanual, and consequently, when in our third year, hIiss Kaltz came, lXIr. KIontani left. We may consider that third year our lucky one, in so far as Miss Kaltz's coming was concerned, because we are all aware of the great asset she has been to Tech. The enrollment of this first chorus class grew from twenty the first semester, to seventy-five the second, and at the present time, the classes number from five to six hundred. Up to that time, credit was given for Chorus I and II. In 1916 lVIiss Kaltz was successful in her attempt to establish a choral society, which was really Chorus III and IV, but for which pupils were given credit. Admission to the organization is gained by try-outs, to which the students of Chorus I and II, who have shown ability, are eligible. The object of the Choral Society is to help students to become acquaint- ed with, and know some of, the world's great- est music. The Choral Society has made sev- eral public appearances, and their performances have been such that we may well be proud of them. Tech was the first of the Indianapolis high schools to add harmony, on a credit basis, to its curriculum. It was introduced in Tech by Bliss Raltz, and its relation to music is the same as grammar is to a language. It is readily seen, therefore, how important it is, and especially to students who have a knowledge of music. In 1915 1NfIiss Kaltz introduced music appre- ciation into the music department, Tech being the first high school to make the addition to its course. This wonderful subject has the same relation to music, as has art to painting. It makes it possible for one to enjoy the beauty of music in its various forms, even though one is not an accomplished musician. The idea of the lXfIusic Nfemory Contest, which is really an outgrowth of 1XfIusic Appre- ciation, was introduced in the three high schools by hir. Edward Baily Birge, then director of 53 THE ARSENAL CANNON music in lndianapolis. The prize of the contest, which was a banner, was given to the winning high school by the Rotary Club. In 1920 Tech won the banner, at the first of these contests which were held at Caleb hrlills Hall, Shortridge. hlanual won the banner in 1921. A team of ten had been chosen from each high school and these contestants had learned the titles of fifty compo- sitions, ten of which were played in the concert by the Orloff Trio. These were written from memory, and the prize was given to the winning team. Outside music has been a valuable addition to our course of study for through this pupils may obtain credit for music studied outside of school. lyleetings are held monthly, at which intervals reports are turned in by the pupils, concerning their progress, and at the end of the semester each student is required to pass an ex- amination to get his credit. Beginning in 1917, outside music credit was given. Credit may be obtained in piano, voice, or any orchestral band instrument. Our band, the pride of Tech, was organized in the fall of 1915, under the direction of Miss Kaltz. It was mostly made up of boys who played in the Newsboy 's band. They surely did have wonderful times on such occasions as the tournaments, which were held in Martinsville. It could not boast of a strutting drum-major, and instead of uniforms, the boys wore green and white sweaters and skull caps, and white trousers. They played out on the campus on our first Supreme Day celebration. Wliile Miss Kaltz was on leave of absence during the war, a great many changes took place. In the first place, the band was put under mili- tary direction, and from this time on, a credit was given, and regular school periods were set aside for it. Mr. Gillespie, who plays a cornet, was in charge, from September, 1918, to June, 1920. 1V1r. Percival came to Tech in Septem- ber, 1920, to take charge of the band. He also organized the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Junior Band which is open to all pupils having a knowledge of some instrument, and it is by means of this that admission is gained to the advanced band. 1Ve all know of the thrilling appearances of our band, headed by our strut- ting drum major. Everybody knows, and is proud of, our Girls' Glee Club. 1sn't it the cleverest group ever? Their popularity has become so great recently that it has been necessary to organize a Junior Glee Club. The Advanced Club now devotes its time to the study of an operetta or, cantata, while the Junior Club spends its time in the creation of songs, to be used for the schoolls entertainment. Supreme Day, the Advanced Club gave a cantata, 'L Spring Rapture". hliss Kaltz has conducted the Girls' Glee Club ever since its organization in 1915, except during her leave of absence, June 1918-1919. lt was not until 1917 that a regular hour was assigned and credit given for Glee Club work. During hfliss Kaltz's absence the club was un- der the direction of Bliss Sewell. Upon the re- turn of hliss Kaltz this club, with the assist- ance of the Boys' Glee Club, gave the operetta, "Hiawatha's Viiooingf' in two night perform- ances at Tomlinson Hall. The Boys' Glee Club was organized by Miss Kaltz in 1915. There was no assigned hour and no credit was given, but the boys volunteered and gave their time after school to practice. Few of the Techonians of today have heard them, but they sang at all the former class plays. They gave a very good war program in June, 1915. It seemed that the Boys' Glee Club was featured in more school activities than the Girls but not so now. 1N'1r. Vliinslow became its director in Febru- ary, 1920, and continued so until Klr. Percival succeeded him in September, 1920. In Sept- tember, 1921, hlr. Barker became, and has since been, the director. Interest seems to have been revived, from various reports, and we are hoping to hear from them in the near future. Nlr. Barker has also the sponsorship of our Saxophone Quintette, which we all heard be- tween the acts at the opera, "The hlaid and the Middy," and at the January ,22 class play, "The Rejuvenation of Aunt Maryf' The Opera Club, organized by hlr. Frank Percival, enables pupils who have vocal ability to study operas and operettas. Admission to the club is gained by try-outs. An opera is giv- en once a year by them. They have given two operas so far, "Pinafore," and, "The Maid and the hfliddyf' 'Both were very creditably rendered. The Campus Choir, composed of the alum- ni of the Opera Club, was also organized by Mr. Percival. This organization spends its time in the miscellaneous study of choruses from the various well known operas and other musical works. The Campus Choir gave a splendid program at the June, 1921 Commencement at Tomlinson Hall. Hope Carter. QQQQQ 'CDunno whatls the matter-couple of fellars 1 passed in the halls said hello.

Did you? just as no home is complete without a library so is no school complete without one. It is the source of all knowledge, the clearing house for perplexing questions, the dispenser of many hours of pleasure. It can and will help to start a child on the right road to the best literature through the reading of which he will be lead into better and more useful ways of living. Ten years ago when Tech came into existence its library consisted of a set of encyclopedias and a few gift books. As the school grew the need for reference books became imperative. In 1914, in room 27, the hopes of the students were realized for carpenters built shelves around three sides of the room, books and magazines began to appear, and Miss Harter came to pre- side over our new library. Under her guidance this room assumed the air of a real library al- though it was so very small and so inadequate for the ever growing and pressing needs of the student body. Its first big gift was a catalogue file which was presented by the 1917 senior class. This is now filled with newspaper and magazine clippings and pictures which are excellent material for class room and reference work. In 1917, IXfIiss Kahler, a graduate of Tech, was appointed as assistant librarian. But dur- ing the next two years the amount of work in- creased so much that Miss I-Iarter started the custom of appointing apprentice girls and so valuable did these assistants prove that they continue to work in the library, their reward being a credit for two periods of work each day during the semester. These girls have as their duties the charging and discharging of books, keeping the books in order on the shelves, looking up references for students, preparing books for the shelves, and mending books. The year, 1920, brought another great change to the library for it changed its abode. Room 20, now room -1, became its new home. Again carpenters appeared and built shelves around three sides of this room. New filing cases appeared, Kliss Hartcr claimed a desk as her very own and Kfiss Kahler acquired a desk. The next problem, now that there was plenty of room, was to get enough books to fill the shelves. The january '20 seniors took the first step in the solving of this problem by giving, as a gift, two hundred dollars which were to be used to purchase books on the Iiiorld Viiar in honor of the Tech boys who were in the service. One hundred and thirty-seven war books have been purchased and in each one is placed a book-plate containing the names of our service men. The week beginning November the seventh, nineteen twenty-one, was set aside for a book drive. Cards requesting books were sent to the alumni. Each student was asked to bring at least one book. The donor of a book received a tag which had been designed by Floyd Beeler, and in his donation was pasted a bookplate which had been designed by Frank Atkins and which bore the giver's name. The goal was four thousand books but at the close of the drive the count was over seven thousand. All of these books have not been made ready for the shelves as yet but the library force is work- ing every day on the classification and catalog- ing of them so the shelves are gradually being filled. In 1918 the library boasted of six hundred and twenty-five books. At the present, fifty- four hundred books have been catalogued, class- ified, and accessioned. Over nineteen hundred cards are in use and from one hundred to one hundred and seventy books are taken out each day. iiihen the library first started the books were given out for a day at a time but now they may be kept out one week with the privilege of renewal for one week more. Surely, if there is one thing in the history of Tech for which our students should be thankful it ought to be for this splendid library which we now possess, and for the efficient force which is ever ready to help a seeker to find just the right reference for his essay or just the best book for his outside reading. Iris Innis. 60 THE ARSENAL CANNON be lass Each of the senior classes of Tech has a diff- erent type of class day and a different way of presenting the will, the history, the prophecy, the poem and the song. 1 The success of the class days is probably due largely to the teachers in charge. lyliss Shover had charge of the first class day in June 1915. lyliss Allen sponsored the exer- cises in January 1916, and Bliss Goddard in June 1916. Some of the exercises took place at night and others in the afternoonj A few were held in the open air on the campus while others were held in the school buildings or churches nearby. 1n 1915, 1916, and 1917 the girls wore white middy suits, but because of the war this uniform dress was done away With. The class day of June 1916 was held at the Wvoodrhff Place Baptist Church. The pro- gram consisted of a Senior lXf1ale Quartette, a Senior Girlls Chorus, and vocal and in- strumental solos. The history, will, and pro- phecy were given in the form of a dialogue. In January 1917 the exercises were held on the campus. They were in the form of a famous crystal-gazer who lived in a tiny house way back of the campus. A man was seen stealing from tree to tree trying to hide his identity. He went to the crystal-gazer and learned of his fate. The crystal could not stop so it went on telling of the fate of the other members of the class and of the history and the will. The program of June 1917 took place at the VVestminster Presbyterian Church. An interesting part of the program was a ukelele orchestra made up of the senior members of the Ukelele Club which was organized at that time. A very novelplan was carried out in June 1918. The stage was arranged like a large temple in China. A traveler was being taken through the temple by a guide. They came to a door which they were supposed not to enter. Curiosity seized the traveler and he opened the door. 1n a short time he was lying on a divan in a magnificent room. He started to Weep which caused a tear to drop on a jewel in the floor. This gave him the wisdom of a seer. The prophecy, history, and will were then read. In January 1919 the senior class had a war program. The president of the class was seen sitting at a table with his head resting on his aps uf Girth folded arms. He felt worried because the re- sponsibility of the class rested upon him. He called on the nations to help him and to his surprise they responded. The members of the class represented the different nations. The historian was represented by England, the poet by France, the will-maker by Belgium, the prophet by America, and the song Writer by lnternationalism. A fantasie, "In Klerrie Days of Robin Hood," was the plan for the class day of June 1919. Two Robin Hood men were seen on the stage conversing with each other. A heavily cloaked person was seen stealing through the forest. She was stopped by the men and was carefully questioned. In order to reveal her identity she gave the history of the class. In a like manner were the prophet, will-rnaker, song writer, and poet stopped and forced to earn their way to freedom. The January 1920, senior class had a very in- teresting class day program. Theeprophet was Father Time who had a mill which ground out the future of the class. The class day exercises of the June 1920 class were based on the sixth book of Virgil's Hineid. The scene represented the land of the Departed. Two spirits, who were stroll- ing along, recognized spirits of members of the class of 1920 and through the conversation which ensued the history, prophecy, will, and poem were brought out. 1n January 1921 the prophecy, will, and history were shown by a "mind machine." This was a very interesting and novel program. The June 1921 class day was held at night on the outdoor stage which had been artistic- ally decorated by the art department. The entire program was very informal. The proph- ecy was read in the form of a newspaper which made the program very original. The class day of January 1922 was held in the new lunchroom in the afternoon. 'clV1iss Civilizationn a clever one-act play, was adapted to fit in with the general class day idea. Each class has carried out its program in an original and successful Way. The question which confronts us is, "Will the classes ever run out of ideasfn Mary lV1errill.

Seven years ago, June 1915, the first Tech commencement was held at Tomlinson Hall. Sixteen splendid girls and boys, Tech's pioneer graduates, appeared on the stage that night. Because they were so few in number the chorus was banked behind them to balance the stage. The class of the following year went to the 1NIurat to be graduated, June 8, 1916. The group marked the graduation of the first unit of Tech. The commencement exercises were held as a celebration of the Indiana Centennial, the program being an historical dramatization of the principal events in the history of Indiana which had a direct bearing on Indianapolis. This was a program in keeping with the birth- day of Indiana as well as a distinguishing mark in the history of Tech. A most unique commencement was held on June 4,1920, when our three hundred and sixty- three graduates, together with all the graduates of lylanual and Shortridge, received their diplomas at the Coliseum. The presentation of this vast number of young people, ready to go forth to greater things in life, was indeed in- spiring. The diplomas were presented by NIL Crippen, president of the school board. In June,1921,Tech was confronted with a serious problem. There was no platform in the town large enough to hold its four hundred and fifty graduates. The only solution for this difficulty was to divide the class in two groups, one section to receive its diplomas Thursday evening, June the ninth, the other, Friday evening, the tenth. The group which was not on the stage, sat in a reserved section in the hall. The commencement address was made by William I-I. Kiekdofer, professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin. This year, June 1922, the same difficulty would have arisen if it had not been that at last Indianapolis has a platform large enough to accommodate Tech's graduates. This is Cadle Tabernacle. So, on Friday evening, June the twenty-third,approximately five hundred students who constitute our largest graduation class, will receive their diplomas in the presence of a vast number of relatives and friends. IVe feel sure the Tabernacle will be crowded. In looking back over the different commence- ments it is amazing to note the increase in the number of graduates each year, sixteen in 1916 as compared to five hundred in 1922. If Tech has made such rapid strides in the first ten years of her existence it is diflicult to ascertain just what she will do in her second ten years. Louise Rice. Gifts of Clinch beniurs The custom of gift giving by the graduating classes has grown out of the desire to perpetu- ate the memory of the class and to impress in some material way, their combined love for their alma mater, and their interest in the fu- ture growth and development of the school. The individual gifts have varied according to the tastes of the particular class and the out- standing need of the school at that particular time. As the school has, and is still undergoing, a constructive period, the gifts have been con- fined to those of the most practical value, divid- ing naturally into two classes, money gifts and material ones. Those leaving to the school the discretion of the expenditure of their gifts of money were the classes of June '16, January '17, June '17, June '18, January '19, June '20, and January '22. The class of January '21 gave money to be used for the purchase of two bronze tablets to be placed in the two closed window spaces at the sides of the main entrance to the Arsenal. Cn one is to be inscribed the creed of the school, upon the other, the names of the Arsenal com- manders are to be written. The growing need for a trophy case and tablets for records of gifts, was answered by the members of the class of June '21. hlaterial gifts, both practical and ornamental, were given by the following classes. The class of June '15 left a property box containing the costumes used in their play, "lXIidsummer Night's Dream," bound volumes of "Hear Ye", and a steel record cabinet. Seniors of January '16 gave a steel cabinet for alumni records. The January '18 class gave to the school a filing cabinet for the use of the library. The mem- bers ofthe class of June '19 procured a painting, "The Arsenal Bell " done by Otto Stark. The Seniors of January '20 bought books on the world war as a memorial to Tech's boys who were in the service. Governed more, perhaps, by the actual needs of the school, the field of choice for class gifts has thus far been limited to these two groups. However, as the pioneer stage of the school is nearing its close, in the future there will possi- bly be a much broader 'variety from which to choose, and gifts may be ornamental as well as practical. I-Iowever, as the first principle of a work of art is its answering a specific need, each gift up to the present time has fully complied with the highest of standards. Joe Geiger. THE ARSENAL CANNON fEecb'5 lass flaps TXTIDSUMMER N1GHT's DREAM-1915 Since the organization of Technical there have been given fifteen class plays. These have included modern comedies, Shakespearian dra- ma, and more spectacular plays where the scene- ry and costumes had an important part in put- ting the play across. The first play, presented by the June ,15 class, was "A hlidsunimer Nights Dream," by lVilliam Shakespeare. The play was direct- ed by Nliss Shover, Tech's beloved teacher. It was given on the campus just east of the Arsen- al building. The stage and bleachers were con- structed by the boys in the carpentry shop while the electrical shop had charge of the lighting. The art department had to take care of the scenery, and the sewing department had charge of the costumes, so the play was exclusively "Tech.,' There were only sixteen members of the first class so some of the cast had to be taken from the lower classrnen. The leading parts were taken by Frank Sul- livan, Donald Durman, and Lois Stone. The night was ideal for the play. hir. Otto Stark remarked as the moon came through the trees that it seemed like a fairy place. The music was furnished by the school orchestra. An inter- esting thing to note was the absence of inter- rnissions between the acts. The play was given lfay 12, l9l5, before a very large audience. It was a Tech success in every sense of the word. The January '16 class gave "She Stoops to Conquer," by O. Goldsmith. It was a delight- ful eighteenth century comedy and was direct- ed by Bliss Shover. The play was to have been given in the same place as the first play but in- clement weather prevented this, instead, it was given at the old German House now known as the Athenxum. The leading parts were very well portrayed by Juanita Kendrick, Victor Prange, hfartha Huff, Lehmann Holliday, and Edward Owen. June '16 was one of the high spots in Tech drama. Instead of a class play, a Shakespear- ian pageant was planned and carried out in honor of the tercentennial anniversary of the death of VVilliam Shakespeare. This pageant THE ARSENAL CANNON 63 included all the important plays by Shakes- peare. Everybody at Tech participated, from freshmen to seniors. Each English class had a play and the English teacher coached them. Following is a list of plays and directors: English l, The Tempest, Bliss Nlcldaughlin. English lll, Coriolanus, Kliss Lanning. Vocational Class, Julius Caesar, Kliss Bozell. English Yl, Henry V, Kliss Foley. English IV, Archery Contest., Kliss S. Leanard. Senior Girls,Taming of the Shrew, hliss Godd- ard. English V, A VVinter's Tale, Bliss Patterson. June Seniors, lluch Ado About Nothing, Bliss Goddard. English Vll, lylacbeth, Klr. Klills. English VIII, Hamlet, Kliss Bridge. The pageant was presented over by the pow- der magazine. It was well attended and met with great success. "All of a Sudden Peggy," by Ernest Denny, was given by the January '17 class and inci- dently was Kliss Farman's first play at Tech. Helen Drake and Roy hlcC1ruder had the lead- ing parts. One performance was given at the hlasonic Temple. The class of June'17 gave"Pomander lYalk' '. The play was presented at the old German House now known as the Athenaeum. Qakley French, Viola Swain, and Josephine Vllooley had the leading parts. The play was directed by Xliss Farrnan. The play given by the January '18 class was "Charley's Aunt," by Brandon Thomas. Rus- sel Kirschman, Yivian Webster and Elizabeth Yial had the leading parts. The play was pre- sented with one performance at the Klasonic Temple. lt was rehearsed in the attic of the East Residence where many interesting objects were unearthed. Kliss Farman directed the play. A play by Dix and Sutherland was given by the June '18 class, "The Road to Yesterday." Bess Hartley, Usear Ries and Klarjorie Freeman had the leading parts. Kliss Farman directed the playand presented it attheKlasonic Temple. By January '19, war plays were quite the thing and so this class gave a war play, "lYlien a Feller Needs a Friend," by Harry Higgins and Harriet Ford. The proceeds of this play went to French orphans, over two hundred dol- lars being cleared for this purpose. This was the first Tech play that was given at a legitimate theatre. It was shown at English's, Kliss Far- man again being the director. "New Lady Bantock" or "Fannie and the Servant Problem," by Jerome K. Jerome, was the play given by the June '19 class. Ted Campbell who had just returned from service overseas was the dignified butler. Angeline Bates and Frances Elmendorf had the leading parts. This play was repeated at the Fort Ben- jamin Harrison hospital for sick and convales- cent soldiers stationed there. A THOUSAND YEARS Ano-1922 64 THE ARSENAL CE.-XNNON The next play was by gl. Xl. Barrie, f'The Admirable Crcightonf, presented by the Janu- ary '20 class. lt was a four-act modern comedy. Kenneth Dynes was the big star of this play in the part of the Admirable Creighton. The play was the first Tech ever presented at the Rlurat. At this time hlr. Park started with the direct- ing of the advertising. " Prunellan was the playgiven by the June '20 class. lt was a drama with many beautiful cos- tumes and very beautiful stage settings. The leading parts were taken by Betty Nunlist and Lawrence Neidlinger. The play was rehearsed in the lunchroom and was directed by Kliss Far- man. This was the first play with two per- formances. "Captain Kiddn was the January '21 play, a very delightful modern comedy with lots of pep, action. and romance. hlinna hflargaret Lauter and William Hackmeyer were the leads. Thomas Leonard made a big hit as the village constable. Others is the cast were Sam Ashby, Alberta Kappler and Stephen Badger. Miss Farman directed the play, two performances were given. June '21 class gave '4The Royal Family," a rather spectacular drama. Paul Hodges made a big hit as the Cardinal because the part was so very different from '4Hobby,' himself. Shide- ler Harpe and hflamie Clark had the leading parts. This was lvliss Earman's last play at Tech as she said "Adieu " the following summer. A matinee and a night performance were given. "The Rejuvenation of Aunt hlaryu, by Anne VVarner, presented by thejanuary '22 class, was the comedy chosen. Eleanor lVlcColloum had the part of Aunt lvlary and couldn't have been beat at it. Bob Drake and Josephine Healy had the leading parts. This was Miss Fogg's first play at Tech and for lots of color and ro- mance it couldn't be beat. The June '22 class gave "A Thousand Years Ago," by Percy hflackaye. This was a very spectacular play where the costumes and scen- ery played an important part in putting the play over. This had a cast numbering fifty. Sherwood Blue and Hilda Smith had the lead- ing parts. The comic parts played by Morris Greenburg, Robert Nipper, Robert Cook, and Jack Velsey were Very well done.

Glhe Qlumni Qssuriatiun The Alumni Association of the Arsenal Technical Schools was organized in June 1916, under the supervision of Nliss Esther Fay Shover, with Edward Troy Owen as president and with a total enrollment of 146. Viiith the association grown to 2000 in number? at the present time it is very hard to realize that the first meeting was held down in Room 60. Here a sumptuous banquet was served after which hlr. Collicotte, then superintendent of schools, addressed the association. A dance followed in the old gym. The meetings for the two following years featured about the same except that the lunch room was needed to hold the increased member- ship. A In 1919 a new feature added much to the interest, and that was a play directed by lVIrs. James Steep, formerly Miss Florence Farrnan. The carpentry shop, with a brand new floor, proved more of an attraction than "Splinter Hallu. This meeting was especially enjoyable after the strain of the war. , Since 1920 the association has been under the sponsorship of Kliss Hazel Pearson. In that year the problem of space was partly solved by holding the business meeting and play out of doors under the trees. The use of lanterns gave a very pretty effect but the carpentry shop proved much too small for the dance for so many alunmi wanted to attend. VVoodruff Club was taken over the next year and a carnival was added to the usual attractions. Vlfith several hundred people in attendance the walls of the club fairly bulged. The first alumni paper, The Extex, came into ex- istence in 1921 and was edited by Dallas Crooke now president of the association. A prize of five dollars which was given for the best name was awarded to Alberta Keppler. This year, 1922, the paper has been increased from four pages to sixteen and contains pictures of lylr. Stuart, alumni ofhcers, Tech's letter men from colleges, and two new buildings. This edition, edited by Ray Woods, shows great progress for such a short time. The meeting this year was the biggest yet. A banquet was given in the new lunch room with an elaborate program of music and toasts. This was followed by basketball games in the new gyms. Then came the dance and carnival occupying practically the whole first and second floor of the new shop building. The Alumni Association is fast becoming an active organization with more co-operation and with more interest in the affairs. THE ARSENAL CANNON 65 Supreme ups at atb E FIRST SUPREME DAY-1917 Following the custom established live years ago, Tech celebrated Supreme Day on May 22, 1922.This day which is responsible for Tech's existence, and growth, and forms a vital part of Tech's beginning, should be known to all Tech- onians. They should know how it came about, how Tech has celet rated it, what it means, and what the decision made by the Supreme Court promises the citj: of Indianapolis. The present site of over seventy-five acres, together with some ground south of lflichigan Street, was purchased by our government in December of 1862. After the close of the Civil liar the Arsenal was used as a store -house for arms. In September of 1912 Technical High School opened for business with one hundred and eigh- ty-three pupils and eight teachers. From 1912 to 1916 the school was in the hands of the court, this made it very difiicult to conduct school. The teachers and the pupils did not know on Friday whether school would open on the fol- lowing NIonday. Records show, however, that even with this handicap the school went forward for its enrollment increased from 183 to over 1000 pupils in the four years. On May 22, 1916 the Supreme Court decided that the school board could buy the present grounds of over seventy-live acres. The anniv- ersary of this decision, so vitally important to boys and girls of today and of the future, is celebrated by devoted Techonians. The hrst celebration of Supreme Day, a pat- riotic affair, was held on 1NIay 22, 1917. A band concert followed by a series of drills given by the girls of the gym classes, was one interesting feature of the program. The iron Hagpole which stands near the artillery building had just been erected in place of the old wooden pole which had been blown down that spring. Around this new Hag-pole the audience assembled to witness a pageant depicting the making of the American flag. At the close of the pageant Old Glory was raised in honor of the one unfurled by the government in 186-1. The Supreme Day of 1918 was celebrated with dances.drills,and pageants. Goddess of Spring, given in 1XfIay 1919, was a very beautiful pageant. The costumes were very pretty and full of bright colors, some repre- sented butterflies, flowers, leaves, autumn, and the sun. The eighth birthday of Tech, 1X'Iay 22, 1920, was celebrated with a very elaborate pageant in honor of Supreme Day. The pageant portrayed the history of Tech from the time the Indians roamed over the grounds to the present day. It also showed the gift our arsenal gives to Indianapolis.

SIGHT Or FLAG Pom: by Miss Shover, gave those who witnessed it some idea of the big gift Indianapolis is receiv- ing from Tech. The main feature of Tech's next Supreme Day celebration was a huge birthday cake holding nine candles. When the cake was cut, out step- ped students symbolic of Tech activities. The tenth anniversary was celebrated with a pageant depicting, "The Spirit of Tech." In the afternoon a band concert was given with 'fpepn songs between numbers. A Cantata, 6'Spring Rapture, U was given on our Athletic field by the the Advanced Girls' Glee Club. Following this came the pageant, "The Spirit of Tech." The people of Indianapolis should realize what a supreme decision was made by that Supreme Court, May 22, 1916. Of course the school is not yet complete, by any means, but when it is finished according to the idea of our worthy principal, Mr. Stuart, Indianapolis will possess the finest high school in the United States. Tech will have a beautiful natural park where wild flowers and trees of all kinds belong- ing to this part of the country will be allowed to grow, a large auditorium whose seating capaci- ty will be 10,000g a Greek theatre, and a large athletic field. Such an institution, to be real- ized for Tech during the next fifty years, coupled with the fellowship of such a student body as the school now has, promises wonderful things in the way of citizenship to Indianapolis, to Indiana, and to the United States. Virginia Meek. Scraps From Tech's Scrap Books Vllhen Tech first came into existence there was a great controversy over the name of this new school. Some wanted to call it Winona High. Then, in the News, September 11, 1912, appeared an article, signed "Old Timer," in which our present name-Arsenal Technical High School-was suggested. During Tech's first year the enrollment passed two hundred and twenty-five. On October 7, 1912, Tech held its first Riley program. On this occasion the students sent two dozen roses to Mr. Riley. The names of William Erwin, Nlildred Gold- berger, Wiilliam Kinkel, Arthur lylarquilte, Dorothy New, Edward Owen and Genevieve VViese appear on Tech's first honor roll. Tech's first faculty party was held October 11, 1912. The Manual faculty was included in this celebration. hfildred Goldberger, Louis Brady, Earl Pang- hom and Loraine Tree were the first contribu- tors to Tech's first school paper.

Even then the supply was not exhausted. Indianapolis News, Oct. 13, '1-1. The old Guard House at Tech which has been used as a lunchroom, has been closed. It has probably seen the last of its usefulness as far as the school is concerned. 1X'Iarch the eleventh, 1915, a group of thirty teachers and thirty pupils met to decide three momentous questions-the school colors, arm-band and alumni pin. Green and white were chosen as Tech's colors, an acorn shaped arm band was selected, and the Tech pin was to be acorn shaped. The names of the pupils who voted on these questions are: A Russell Cook Victor Prange Nlorris Dusendschon hfargaret Gilpin Bertha Ruby Lois Stone Pauline Riester hfary Prather 1Villiam Sachs Josephine hlahaffey VVilliam VVebster Cora 'Winnan Ralph Reidy Homer Barton Charles VVheat 1Warie O'Hara Ted Campbell George Dixon Frances Thorns Genevieve XViese Elizabeth Vial Alice Avery John Broderick Bernice Llewellyn Iva Stewart Fay Doulgass Jerome Murpliy 1V1ary Ferris Archie Cohen Forrest Nutt THE ARSENAL BELL - BY Orro STARK In 1916, hir.

Savez-vous? QQQQQ liberty Erotic As a permanent memorial to the Technical High School students who entered the service of their country during the Wvorld VVar, a grove of trees was planted on the school grounds almost in the shadow of the old clock tower. Two hundred and forty-two trees were donated by the park Board, one for each student in service, and planted by members of the January 1920 Senior Class. The dedicatory services, held on Armistice Day, November eleventh, 1919, were so beautiful and impressive that they will never be forgotten by those fortunate enough to be present. hlusic for the occasion was furnished by the school band, and an interesting feature was a drill by the R. O. T. C. in full uniform. Girls of the class, dressed in patriotic colors, decorated each tree with a flag. Four of the trees, in memory of Paul Burns, Franklin Burns, Ralph Gullet, and Alfred Sloame, who made the supreme sacrifice on their countryis alter, were decorated in a special manner. The president of the Park Board formally presented the trees. hir. Stuart ac- cepted the gift in the name of the school paying a fitting tribute to those whose memory they are to perpetuate. The Reverend Kfr. O'Dell of the Second Presbyterian Church delivered 65 THE ARSENAL CANNON the oration of the day, and the formal program closed with patriotic music by the band. As a further tribute by the class a book- plate was designed on which appears the name of all the boys who were in service. This plate is now used in about two hundred books in reference to the war, which were a gift of the class to the school library. This was all a fitting and lasting tribute to those who heard the call to service. This Grove will, in years to come, be a temple 'knot made with handsw to keep their memory green and fadeless. As Joyce Kilmer says: "I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the earth's sweet loving breast, A tree that looks at God all day And lifts her leafy arms to prayg A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair, Upon whose bosom snow has lain, VVho intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree." Eva Moore. DEDIC.ATION Or I.iBERfrx' GROVE more Qhuut liberty Grub: Perhaps the most touching part of the Liberty Grove ceremony was the decoration of the trees, planted for the boys who had made the " supreme sacrifice. " There were four of them, all of whom left school to enlist: Alfred Sloame who died of spinal meningitis at Fort Huston, Texas, Ralph Gullett, who was killed in his first engagement, Paul Burns and Franklin Burns, both of whom were killed in action. Kliss Harter, after much hard work, has managed to procure the records of one hundred and twenty-three of our boys. These show that forty-five went over-seas. Seven of those were wounded. In the S.A.T. C. fStudents Army Training Corpsl we had fifty-four represenativ- es. Eighteen chose the artillery, sixteen the navy, while eight left the friendly earth behind and in the air service, explored the sky. Six more carried on the good work of engineering. Tech has also to their credit four marines and four infantrymen, and three more who became heroes of the ambulance. Three did honor to Miss Kaltz's training by keeping up their music, two as band members and one as a bugler. One more 4' carried on 'l in the Red Cross. There are a few especial heroes. Lucy E. Ervin, a Private in the Marine Recruiting Ser- vice, was the sole representative of the Tech girls. Rush 'Williams, who, by the way, is the brother of our Rlarguerite, received the Cross of XYar and the Distinguished Service lvfedal. Kenneth Jeffries was one of the selected Marine Guards for President Wilson when he went to France. Not a bad showing for so young a school,is it? And as for faculty-of course the faculty was there. Thanks to Kfr. Anderson, who enlisted the aid of Nfrs. Harrison,we have a record of each present member of the faculty who served. It is very interesting to note that, with but a few exceptions,every teacher was an officer. Cf our three or four privates one was a wireless operator connected with the heavy artillery, another was connected with the medical depart- ment and the chemical warfare department. Then we had one secretary of the Y. Nl. C. A. and a member of the C. A. C. B. D. S. H. Chester A. Amick has the unique record of hav- ing enlisted twice, once as a bugler on the hflex- ican Border, again in the Army of Occupation. Another of our teachers, F. L. VVilson, was in turn, a mine sweeper, mine layer, converter of Russian travelers into sweepers and an oflicer in the transport service. In regular branches of the Service, we had six infantrymen, four in the field artillery, and three in the air service. The navy, the marines, and the medical corps each had two men to their credit, while the coast artillery, ordinance department, engineers and S. A. T. C. each claimed one. lledals? Vvell, they didn't say they had any, but we fear that faculty of ours is most terribly modest, and we are quite sure that somewhere, hidden safely away, are some medals and cita- tions for their bravery. Here is a list of those men and boys, students and teachers, who put on uniforms for the honor of Tech, of Indiana, and of the U. S. A. 2965-1 iiZQ9'u C. A. Amick H. H. Anderson E. Anderson H. L.

Ten years of athletics at Tech-ten years of successes and failures, failures that have been met with grim deter- mination to better the record next time, suc- cesses which have been met with smiles. During the first few years of Tech's growth the records of the teams did not flourish but the desire to be successful was ever present and courageous endeavors have resulted in many victories in all branches of athletics. The athletes have been plodding along in spite of poor equipment, strengthening each year's record, until now, any Tech student is proud to point to these proofs of their energetic and ambitious athletes. Following is a history of Athletics at Tech since 1912: History of Baseball 1912 Baseball fiourished in a small manner dur- ing the first year of Techg that is, during that time, those who wished to play reported at the diamonds where scrub teams were chosen and these men formed the nucleus of succeed- ing teams. hilr. H. H. Anderson had charge of these teams. 1913 Then, during 1913, league teams were or- ganized, these seemed always to inspire a large amount of enthusiasm into the players and fans, for the scores were fairly even, considering the materials used, and conditions. 1911 1n the spring of 191-1 one Tech team entered a lN1anual league, and Tech's representative finished with an average of 333. During this year a certain uPup" 11iilson showed exceed- ingly wonderful ability on the diamond. Klr. Sanders was the coach. 1916 League teams were again organized this year. This is what appeared in the CANNON in the spring of 1916. "Tech, now at the end of its fourth year as a high school, is at the forefront in nearly every branch of secondary athletics. Athletics, during the past four years, have been invaluable in the development of Tech, in maintaining a wholesome and loyal spirit among the students." 1917 The spring of this year witnessed one of the best baseball teams ever turned out at Tech. Coach Carroll had to give up his coaching job' when he answered his country's call and left for the Officer's Reserve Training Camp at Fort Harrison on Nfay eleventh. His duties- were taken hold of by Klr. Gorman and l1f1r- Spence, who continued the good work started by Carroll. And then it was that Tech walked away with the first state championship that she ever held. On lX1ay twenty-fifth and sixth, a state tournament was held at Lafayette under the auspices of Purdue University. The results of the games follow: Tech C 91 Anderson Q01-Forfeit Tech Q 71 Nfanual C31 Tech C121 Kewanna Q21 Of all the games that were played the- 1X1anual-Tech affair was decidedly the best of the tournament. 1Vith air-tight pitching' and fielding our team managed finally to ease over a victory. The Kewannas barely offered any resistance' to our unbeatable team. These games were umpired by Harry C.. Geisel of lndianapolis, who stated, after the game, that Tech presented one of the strongest. and fastest high school teams he had witnessedl for several years. This state championship team was composed. of the following players, some of whom are now stars elsewhere: Screes, Wvagner, Ash, Sherman, Sheppard, 'X1olls, Kimick, and Scheiving. 1918 During 1918, much to our sorrow, Tech did not have any baseball team. "Blame it on the war." 1919 1n this year we won the city league cham- pionship over Shortridge and Klanual by a large lead. Our state team also beat 1X1anualf and Shortridge by the scores of 25-12 and 12-7,. respectively. 1920 The baseball team was started early ini April, by hlr. Crandall, who organized a state team. A city league was also arranged withi THE ARSENAL CANNON 71 Manual, each school entering four teams. In spite of all effort on the part of the coaches and many faithful players, this league did not materialize. 1921 Nineteen hundred and twenty-one proved a banner year indeed, in baseball. A state team was organized under the tutelage of Mr. Cran- dall and, this team captured every game on its schedule including a forfeit game from Edin- bur . g 90454549 The History of Basketball 1913-1-I Basketball at Tech, was first played in the year 1913-1-1. League teams, such as still ex- ist, were organized among the students. These teams played only among themselves and did not compete with outside schools. It is interesting to note that the faculty had, at this time, and for several years afterward, a team which competed yearly with one of the student teams. lXfIr.Anderson, lXfIr. Richard- son and lNIr. Lancaster of our present faculty have been stars of the faculty teams of other days. 1911-15 Tech entered her first sectional tournament in the year 191-1-15. This tournament was held in Franklin in the spring of 1915. The team which Tech sent had been organized but a short time before. As a result, they had had but little practice and experience. Further- more it was the first time that a Technical basketball team had played against an out- side school. The boys put up a great scrap against Shelbyville in their first game, but it was in vain. Their handicaps were too great and so they were forced to bow in defeat. The score of this game, the first with an out- side team, was Shelbyville 37, Technical 19. 1915-16 The season of 1915-16 found league basket- ball still occupying the center of the stage. Tech again sent a representative team to the sectional, this time at Nfartinsville. This team made a splendid showing, beating Uak- landon to the tune of 22 to 12. They then trounced Castleton 27 to 23 in the second round before bowing to the strong Southport team in the semi-finals, 37 to 15. 1916-17 Up to the spring of 1917, more attention had been given to the league teams than to the state squad, the latter team being organized only a short time before the tournament. The school year of 1916-17 saw the beginning of the end of this condition. The candidates were practicing under coaches Lancaster and Carrol, by the first of the year. Interest among the student body was at a much higher pitch than it had ever been before. The sectional tournament was again held at hflartinsville. Our boys won their first game which was an overtime affair with Broad Ripple, 25 to 22. They then lost their second game to Martinsville after a hard scrap, 27 to 16. , if A ,I ' 'x:ffiQ 9 4 ' ' ,gli-f FIRST STA rs SQU A D 1917-18 In the season of 1917-18 we find state squad aspirants coming out still earlier. In this year also, Indianapolis high schools received per- mission from the school board to hold inter- scholastic basketball and baseball. This proved to be a great boom to both sports. A schedule was arranged with some of the strongest teams of the state. Tech launched upon her real basketball career. The first part of the sched- ule resulted in a series of defeats. The tide turned in the latter part of the season and the team annexed a number of victories. Among the victims were our present day rivals, Columbus, Kokomo, Shelbyville and Broad Ripple. Tech entered the sectional at Blartinsville, this year, with the highest hopes of carrying away all the honors. They were doomed to disappointment, however, as our boys dropped their first game to llooresville to the mourn- ful tune of 17 toll. 1918-19 In the fall of 1918 basketball started late because of the delay in opening school. The team breezed along, breaking about even in victories and losses. The names of Hawkins, Drayer and Griggs were always quite prominent f THE ARSENAL CANNON in the lineups for the games of this season. The sectional tournament was held in Indi- anapolis for the first time in the spring of 1919. The tournament was held in Tomlinson Hall. Tech won her first game from Fisher's but lost her second to Shortridge in a hardly contest- ed game in which Tech held the lead for the most of the game, Shortridge forging ahead in the last minutes of play. This tournament, the first held in Indianapolis in Tech's life time, was won by Manual. 1919-20 Never before had such a collection of stars worn the Green and VVhite as in the season of 1919-20. Nipper, Griggs, Slaughter, Hawkins, Drayer, Van Arsdale and Hay were the prin- cipal reasons why our team established such a record of victories over the strongest teams of the state. The unfailing good spirit of our players gained the team our reputation of being the most sportsmanlike team in the state. Tech entered the sectional tournament, which was again held at Tomlinson Hall, a big favorite. Our boys trounced INIanual 20 to 9 in their first game. They then handed Cumberland a neat whipping, 22 to 9. Next, they narrowly escaped disaster at the hands of Ben Davis 11, Tech 1-1. Our team then tackled Shortridge in the final game and came out on the long end of a 27 to 16 score, the first Technical basketball team to win a sec- tional championship. The team went into the state tournament minus the services of its ace, Slaughter, who was having his own little game with the 'gfluf' The loss of Slaughter did not affect the team's fighting spirit as was plainly shown by the 30 to 17 walloping handed to Kendallville in the first game. Our boys then went into the second round against Jefferson of Lafayette, picked by many to win the tournament. Our boys fought hard and made Jefferson go the limit to gain an 18 to 9 decision. Thus ended our first state tournament. Jefferson went to the finals to be defeated by Franklin. 1920-21 Basketball received a late start in 1920 be- cause of football. The team entered the first part of the schedule without much practice and as a result, lost the first game. They soon got started, however, and established a brilliant record for the rest of the season. At one time the team won eleven straight games. They then left the straight and narrow path for two games but soon got back on the right track. Tech again entered the sectional tournament, which was held at the Coliseum, a favorite. Our boys won their first game rather easily from Beech Grove, 32 to 11. They then over- powered Valley iXIills, the dark horse of the tournament, 18 to 1-1. In the semi-finals, Tech came from behind and took a thriller from Broad Ripple, 26 to 13. The final game with Nfanual was a wonderful exhibition of basketball. hfanual fought hard but could not keep up with the pace set by our boys. The final whistle found the score 19 to 14 in Tech's favor and Tech was sectional champion for the second time. In the regional tournament at Blooming- ton, our team hit a stone wall in the form of Vincennes, and accepted the worst defeat of the season. The score was Vincennes 29, Tech 8. Thus we have the history of basketball at Tech from its beginning to the present year. This period has been one continual march for- ward. Let us hope that the march may con- tinue so that Tech will set the standard in basketball as she is rapidly setting it in other things. Harold Harris. QQQQQ Jfuuthall I After along period of rest, simulating that of Rip Van Winkle,football found itself again and started on a career of clean and honest sports- manship. Unlike friend Rip, football was not looked at with wonder but with eager expe- ctation of tense confiict on the white-lined field. Football was received among the other prime sports like a long lost brother and its popularity was probably even increased by its long absence. At any rate, when the first football game in years was played, all the foot- ball enthusiasts were there in force. The first football game in which Indianapolis high schools had participated in years was that between Tech and Kirklin in which our school scored a decisive victory. Hal Griggs had the honor of scoring the first touchdown for Tech. The second game played by Tech was with New Castle and resulted in another victory for us. And oh, that third game, it was one thriller. We played IVIanual to a standstill and further upheld our unstained record. The support of the school was something to be proud of and when the big Tech banner fioated away, supported by one hundred and thirteen green and white balloons, our backing for the team was forcibly displayed through word of mouth. Noblesville, on the light end of a very heavy score, fought to the last in our game with them. And then the game with Shortridge was the main feature of the whole season, THE ARSENAL CANNON 73 the clapping climax to a victorious season. There was wonderful spirit displayed by both schools and it was without a doubt the most hotly contested game of the whole year. Although the first points of the game were made by our opponents, the Tech squad showed its staying ability and pluck by win- ning in the last half. The only thing to mar our perfect record was the game with Sheridan and even it was a "victory in defeatubecause of the splendid attitude which our team showed towards the victors. Then came the victory parade when the entire school, led by lX'Ir. Stuart and the band, marched down to the Circle where hflr. Graff presented the team with a silver cup bearing green and white streamers. This was a symbol of the city championship, won by Tech. The second season of football opened in September 1921, when over two hundred candi- dates turned out for practice. After having worked them over, the best men possible were selected and the team was ready to go up against anything. September twenty-third marked the day of the first game of the season. Tech played Greenfield in a field of mud, and raked up a winning score out of the mud. The second game, with New Castle, was also played, rooted for, and won in the mud. In the next game the mud seemed no longer an advantage for we lost by one point. Further defeat in the mud was taken from Sheridan. The next big event was the second annual mix-up with Shortridge and both teams on this occasion seemed to prefer the center of the field where the mud was better because they never stayed near each other's goal posts for a very long period of time. After fighting the full four periods the teams left the field and the mud to themselves and retired with the original score, nothing to nothing. In the second annual romp with Manual the two teams battled to another scoreless finish. In this game Tech seemed to lack the much needed punch to fatten our score. The last game of the season that was played on our home ground was between Tech and Louisville IVIale High, the champions of Kentucky. In a sea of mud and water a team never displayed more general- ship than did ours, despite the fact that we lost what was probably the most thrilling and exciting game of the season. The season finally ended with defeat of our team by Steel High of Dayton, Ohio. This game was played away from home and although the Green and VVhite warriors did their best, it was not enough to offset the playing of Steele. But best of al Tech did not lose her warlike spirit. The first two seasons of football were sur- charged with wonderful spirit and backing for the team. And as the record has been started, so may the record be kept. Donald John. ooeoo Ilfiecffs Gitank Qfieam Everybody step. All out for track. Track was one of the last major sports that Tech entered. In the first years of its existence the pupils were so taken up with other duties that they had no time to think about track, but at last the school woke up to what it was missing. To please the popular demand, a mass meeting of the school was called, the pos- sibilities of track were discussed, and as a re- sult the first candidates were called out Feb- ruary 11, 1915. lXIr. Brunhow had charge of our first team. The first track meet which was a triangular interclass affair between the Sophomores,Jun- iors, and Freshmen, was won by the Freshies with thirty-five points. The Juniors won thirty-three and the Sophs. trailed behind with sixteen. Four men who were destined to be bright lights in Tech's track history, shone first at this meet. These men were Earl Perkins, Paul Koehler, Henry Butler, and Frank Hoke. These four, with Caldwell and Robinson, formed Tech's first track team. In the state meet of 1915, Tech scored five points when Heine Butler won the quartermile and clipped one-fourth second off the state record. Tech was the only Indianapolis High School to score in the state meet that year. In 1916 Tech trackmen, now ten in number, had ample opportunity to display their ability. Two outside meets were held, one with Rich- mond, at which Tech won, and another with Sheridan, at which Tech lost. Then came the state meet. Koehler and Perkins scored ten points. As a final touch to the season Captain Earl Perkins entered the national meet at Chicago. In 1917 our team was not quite as good as in the previous years. It started off well by defeating Shelbyville and Richmond. They sent quite a few men to the state meet but failed to make a single point there. Captain Perkins had been injured and was unable to work most of the season, so the work fell on Harold Day. He did his job nobly and stood out above the others. In 1918 Tech made up for her off year in 1917. Wiith the new men, Crawford lXIott, 74 THE ARSENAL CANNON Al Nfcllvane, and Clarence Drayer, together with the old standbys-Earl Perkins, Earl VVagner, and Harold Day, the Green and White made fourteen points in the state meet, tying with hfanual for second place. In 1919 a wonderful record was made. Crawfordsville, Anderson, Shortridge, Rich- mond,and Brownsburg were defeated in turn. Tech's one defeat was to lVIanual. The out- standing stars that year were Crawford Mott, Harold Day, James hfaxwell, Clarence Drayer and Hal Griggs. Nine of the men went to the state meet but Harold Day was the only man to score, making four points for Tech. In 1920, the team was strong again. A good record of victories was hung up and the sectional meet was won. But at the state, Manual, whom we had beaten in the sectional, won, while we ran a good second. In 1921, two men, Glenn Gray and Jack Velsey, stood out above the others. Tech was second to lXfIanual in both the sectional and state meet. We counted ten points in the state when Velsey won the high hurdles and Gray broke the state record for the two hundred twenty. Gray went to the National meet at Chicago and won fourth place there, giving Tech one point. This year our team had two star men back and worlds of new material turned out. iilhen the magazine went to print the team had not had an opportunity to prove its strength but judging from the practice it was very strong. 1NIay our future teams be bigger and better! Yea Tech! Track! 00000 Qlinncerning Q Qecessarp Qlihil Yesterday afternoon our city editor thought I looked starved for work, I guess, as he cast his stern eye upon me where I reclined alternately contemplating a view of the campus running away with itself swathed in veils of water vapor, and reading a pamphlet, entitled 'fPolywogs and their Habits." Accordingly, he bundled me into a waterproof so that I resembled a cocoon and hustlecl me away to interview the office. You, poor reader, are suffering from the results of said bundling. A person with a little enterprise can pick up enough information about the office from the fans or culprits await- ing judgment, as to warn them to stay away as long as possible. But my case was unavoidable so I rushed madly up to hlrs. Harrison and stated my mission. I gleaned that the office force was at first practically nihil. It consisted of a battered and scarred roll-top desk which resided in state on the second floor of the Arsenal. Shortly after, a space was railed off where the book-store now is and the office was deposited within this space. lNfIrs. Harrison then took charge. In the fall of 1916 the office was moved to the little house by Lilac Lane and here an- other member, Miss hfabel Fields, was added to the force. The third member must have appeared about this time also. VVhen malicious fate caused the office to burn in the fall of 1921, it was moved to the guard-house, which gave everyone an excuse for missing the greater part of a class when he was sent for a tardy slip, for he could come in looking like an angel, and say sweetly to his teachers, "But, I'm late because it takes so long to get theref' In October 1921, the new building was complete and the new office was pressed into service. Three other members were added to the force, which now comprises the formidable number of six. It pays to be a reporter for I was admitted into lXfIr. Stuart's private sanctorum, and a lovely place it is. The polish- ed floor is partly covered with a soft gray rug of velour.

William Forsythe,s colorful scenes along Pogues' Run, on the east wall. just above is a small clock, set into the wall. In the center of the room is a large desk of walnut with five or six office chairs scattered about. I should like to be a principal just to have such a lovely office. The outer office is very light and airy, and behind the middle counter are the desks of three of our illustrious vice-principals, lNIr. Craig, Mr. hflorgan, and hflr. Greene. On the right are the cubby holes behind which the office force is hidden, and- to the left are the desks of Mrs. Harrison and Miss Thatcher who give tardy slips, et cetera. Back of 1VIrs.

'CDO ya see enything wrong with that tree" meening for him to look at it clost. I-Ie luked.

"Aw rats!" seds Puds shifting around as the ground Wusent very soft. Then she sed "you make a wush an throw it over your sholder" wich he did. They nevir thought to luk were there horse shewelit. It lit on the limb of this tree an then in a few yers a wood man come along an cut off the limb but the horse shew dident fall off an kep on being good luck for the drummer an his gurl. An then along comet Teck an growed up right around this good luck tree. In the corse of time the little tree grew round the horse shew and so the good luck of Teck is purserved by that tree an' as long as that tree lives I bet Teck has lots of good luck an' grows un'grows. "I always Wundered why Teck had such good luck but gee heck Benny, wuts got into you?" "Holy Smoke, I dont know but enny ways I bet part of thats true an' bet Teck takes gud care of that tree an' if they doent they ought to-which I know they do being Teck."

THE .ARSENAL CANNON 77 To Tech VVafting o'er the gay spring breeze, From the stately campus trees A song there comes from Nfemoryis door Touching Arsenal, Barracks, Barn Witli that old historic charm, Bringing back those days of yore, 'When duty work and fame and play Holding sway from day to day VVrought for all their many joys.

When war rent our country dear Our Tech fthe Arsenalj guarded here, hlen and guns, fear to abate, 'Twas here that cannon fired each day, That men drilled hard for every fray And the '4Stars and Stripe-si' upheld the state. Then when each man had ceased to light And his wrongs began to right, Peace and learning, hand in hand, Spread their works throughout the land, And touched the Arsenal on their way, First Wlinona Tech ,twas named, Then A.

Each year pupils come, and Tech has grown Till now this school is widely known Because good standards win renown. So harken all! where'er you are, This message that floats from days afar- Brought to the school of scholarship wide- 0f teams and clubs, old Tech High's pride.

This may be true of the brook but it is also true of the spirit of great men. Vlvhen I was younger, friendswould often turn to me and say ofa certain person, "There is a real man." I knew he was a man but I did not realize why my friend should so emphatically call him ua real manf, I soon realized that my friend recognized in him certain qualities which made him out- standing from his fellowmen. He saw certain things in the inner man which I did not as yet know. Then my eyes were opened and the life of true manhood was revealed to me. True manhood is built four-square. The mental, religious, social, and physical sides must not only be equal, but also the angles of con- duct must be right. To form the square well there must be a will to do the work, a will with high ideals as its objective. With the will work- ing for the better molding of the square a true manly life is formed. No doubt you have in mind one who is "a real mann. In a little Ohio town, on April 27, 1822, Ulysses S. Grant was born. As a boy he showed no traits of a genius but he did build four square. He had no honors when he was graduated from West Point, and later in busi- ness life he was no marvelous success but he did build four square. Vwihen the time for his real service came he was prepared because he built four square. At the outbreak of the Civil war he was commissioned a second lieutenant and was twice cited for bravery in five days because he had built four square. He arose in esteem and so in command and was made general in charge of all the union forces as a man who built four square. He forced Lee's surrender, helped in reconstruction, and was twice elected president of the United States. He was revered and honored by his countrymen until his death as a man who built four square. Now we can look back upon his life and see in it, true manhood. We see in his life an example well worth adopting as our goal. His spirit will live through the ages as one whom we call a real man.

THE ARSENAL CANNON 79 Winning His "W" The day for the track meet between Westford and Melton academies dawned bright and clear. It was to be the gala event of the season, the annual clash between the two rivals for the supremacy of the field. Tom Brent, the freshman quarter-miler and Westford runner, was awakened by the sun streaming in through the window. He quickly arose, went to the window and looked down up- on the street. Sure enough, the scene that had been described to him was actually there. Groups of Wiestford and Klelton students were lounging in doorways or around lamp posts. The Green and YVhite of Wlestford was in predominance but here and there were spots of vivid crimson which indicated a hlelton rooter. As he looked upon this display of color and heard the excited voices of the students supporting their schools, his blood tingled in his veins for he realized that the outcome of this meet was of the utmost importance for the reason that the number of meets won by each school was the same and the one to win this event would break the tie. But along with this was a feeling of sadness, for Tom realized that he, only a freshman 'fsubu on the team, could hardly expect to play a part in the victory. His mind wandered back to the day when the call for trackmen was issued and he had respon- ded. Gardner, the coach, had immediately picked him as a bright prospect to succeed Merrill who was in his senior year. He remem- bered the tryouts, his retention as a "sub," and other important events, but one thing which he never knew was the "time" that he made in practice. W'hy Coach Gardner had kept this back was a mystery. hlany times Tom was inclined to believe that it was slow and had been withheld so as not to discourage him. But in a moment he had cast all these gloomy thoughts from his mind and proceeded to dress. He ate a light breakfast, such as prescribed by Coach Gardner, and then made his way to the school 'fgymu where the team was sched- uled to meet at eleven o'clock. On his arrival, he found that most of the members were already there and what surprised him most was the apparent gloom that hung over the entire as- semblage. Upon inquiry, he learned that, when firing the furnace the night before, hfferrill had been injured by a large piece of coal which had fallen on his foot, and that he would be unable to run in today's race. "However," said Coach Gardner, addressing Tom, "You will run in his place. just do your best, that is all we askf, This so surprised Tom that he was able only to mumble a "Thank you, sirf, The rest of the morning was spent in listening to the encourag- ing words of the coach, urging each one to do his best for the honor of old VVestford. So excited was Tom that he hardly knew what happened in the few hours that intervened between his awak- ening and the start of the meet. He was vague- ly conscious of white-suited forms scampering here and there and of shouts of victory from each of the opposing sides as one of their athletes scored a victory. just before the call for the quarter-mile race, Gardner sauntered up and said, quietly, "Tom, everything depends upon your race. The score is now tied at -Ll, and the winner will be decided by the outcome of this race. If you win, the score will be 46-45 in favor of W'estford, but if you do not, Wfestford is hopelessly beaten. just then the announcer called, "All out for the quarterlw and Tom hurried away with Gardner's parting words in his ears. As he approached the mark, he noticed that he was to oppose three Melton entrants. But also he noticed the smile on the face of Gardner as he stood slightly behind the deep bank of spect- ators that lined the track. It puzzled him. VVas Gardner merely doing this to encourage him or was it supposed not to have been seen? This thought still filled his mind as he toed the line and heard the starter's, "On your marksi' and "Get setug and it was not until the pistol cracked that he centered his mind entirely upon the race ahead. From the very start he was sur- prised at the ease with which he outdistanced his Hpursuersn. He put forth every eFfort to win,and win he did by a margin of several yards. His victory was acclaimed by a great shout from the VVestford rooters, who, overjoyed at the victory, swarmed upon the field and carried Tom off on their shoulders. Later, in the dressing room, Tom learned why Gardner had withheld the time. He had nearly equalled Merrill's record in practice but Gardner had not told him so as not to make him over- confident. But also, to his surprise and joy, he learned that he had lowered the record by one and one-fifth seconds, in the race, and that he promised to be one of the greatest runners ever turned out at Westford. That night, the happiest boy in town was Tom Brent as he was escorted to the platform in the auditorium and before the entire student body, was presented with a handsome green sweater upon whose bosom was sewed a big white '4VV," the highest honor bestowed on any Westford athlete. john Watts. 80 THE ARSENAL CANNON Personals Hobson Ziegler-If you want to meet a fine fellow, Hobson can fulfill your wish.

Ten years have filled with wonder, when in the early spring, we see the sprouts of plants and flowers burst through the soil, watch the sprouts grow, see them blossom, then, at the end of the summer, when they have fulfilled their purpose see them wilt, fade and die. This is the process of growth. Consider, however, the oak tree. The acorn in fertile soil, lies in pregnancy until the showers break its shell and send it shooting upward through the soil. Years pass and the acorn has developed into a sapling. A century or more elapses until finally its stately form has grown to capacity. Under its friendly shade often man has come to meditate and has turned away a better man. Even after it is felled it is useful in the form of our most expensive furniture. Such is the growth of the oak tree. Our school can well be compared to this tree. First, like the acorn, was the seed of thought. Around this was conceived definite plans and purchase money, and our school pushed its small head above the surface of theory into the passed and our school has grown from a sprout into a sapling. Great changes have taken place in those years, yet they are but a beginning. Ten years are but a minute as compared with a century or two. lVe can comparatively consider her future. From her present sapling stage she will grow. Each passing year will disclose new strength and beauty. She will magnify in wisdom, grace and stature. hfan will come and linger with her, meditate and turn away a better man. When, centuries after her birth, she ceases to exist, her memory will be a towering strength toward guiding men to better living. So God has given our school a breath, a pulse, a spirit that she may grow. Sherwood Blue.

During these ten years it has not been the school authorities alone, who have made this school a success, it has not been solely the growing faculty, it has not been solely the school commissioners who have added so many improvements to our school, nor yet, has it been the students, alone, who have made this school. It has taken the hearty co-operation of all these groups to make our school what it is today. Every student, upon entering Tech, is initia- ted into the game of furthering the good stand- ards of Tech. He falls naturally into the rou- tine of his freshman year and before long is a real-for-sure Techonian. And what is a Techo- nian? First of all he is a student of Tech, a loyal supporter of all of its projects, a person who is willing to sacrifice personal honors and bestow them upon the school to glorify its ' name, and last, a law-abiding citizen of Tech. Each senior class, when the time for gradua- tion approaches, feels a tinge of regret because departure is at hand. But its members, when they have the splendid assurance that the in- coming class will take up their work and will making, refill the gap which their absence is find the departure a little easier to bear. And thus, from ycar to year, our Tech will thrive. liach year will add a link in Tech's great chain of progress. livery student, teacher, and school authority will "carry on" th: v,w't'k so nobly thus far, advanced.

Are you malking the best of the present with reference to the future? Perhaps you are a freshman in our school. Are you choosing the course which will best serve you in later life? If not, "Look forward, young man, look forward." If you are a senior, the matter is of still more importance. You will soon be out in the world. VVhat will YOU do? VVill you go on to college and prepare for bigger things? VVill you enter some business concern and start your business life immediately? Regardless of which you do, bear in mind that you should look forward from your every step. Consider the fatalities of near-sightedness. If a near-sighted person is running down the street at a reckless speed and suddenly the form of another person looms before him, he is so close upon him that he is unable to avoid the resulting disaster. However, if this person were to visit an optician who could correct the defect in sight there would be no danger of near-sighted accidents. Therefore, young man, remedy your short- sightedness and look on life and peer into the future. You will always be prepared if you keep in mind and try to answer this question: 'WVhere will I be this time next year?".

However, we feel sure that, with such a capable leader as lVIiss Esther Fay Shover, the exercises were a huge success. And considering the rest of the events, the opera by Miss Kaltz's class, the dinner, and other things-the parents must have been more than favorably impressed with Tech.

To some extent, yes, but not entirely. There are many other branches which combine to make it readable. First, the printers. The vocational print shop boys under the direction of Nlr. Auble have labored with patience throughout the semester trying to decipher the handwriting of the staff members, to practice mind-reading, and to correct proof. They have done excellent work so their labors have not been in vain. Second, the artists. No school can point with more pride to its artists than can we to our CANNON illustrators. hir. Polley's Com- mercial Art Class has indeed covered itself with glory, as the cuts in this Decennial will prove, if one has nct already been convinced. And third, the contributors. In this class there are two groups, lVIiss Shover's News English class, and those numberless students who have voluntarily handed in some excellent material. These two groups are responsible for many of the interesting poems, stories, jokes, and bits of campus gossip which you have read and enjoyed. To all of these we, the CANNON staff, extend our thanks. Their co-operation has made this, Tech's tenth year, the most successful ever. The Teacher's "If" If you can keep your eye on those about you, And their attention also upon you, If you can trust yourself when mothers doubt Y0U, And make allowances for their doubting too, If you can wait and not be tired by waiting For some slow youngster in the outside row, And being irritated not give way to scolding, And yet not be too lax and let things go, If you can make one heap of all your earnings And save it for some future rainy day, And go without the things yould really care for Because it seems to be the better wayg If you can force your sympathy and patience, To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so smile on when there is nothing in you Except the voice which says to you, 'lSmile onll' If you can be a pal to all your children, And love them all-but none too much If you can get them all to really trust you, And help to mold them with a master touch, If you can fill these eager minds before you YVith the desire to serve their fellow men, Yours is a worthy task-and noble, And-which is more-youlve earned a diadem.

Psychologically, students of high school age are ready and anxiozzf to organize, to have leaders, to know and to practice the rules of good citizenship as portrayed in organization. Because of Tech's enormous enrollment the student body has been divided into two groups, one which reports in the morning, the other, in the afternoon. Only at roll-call are all of the pupils in session at the same time. This means that clubs are almost an impossibility. However, this situation has been met, suc- cessfully, by ambitious teachers and pupils who have organized their English, public speak- ing, expression and advertising classes, and their roll-rooms. In this way the teaching of the fundamentals of parliamentary lawhave been accomplished and the students have learned how to adapt themselves to the en- vironment of social groups. QQQQQ Voice Culture for Boys Voice culture has made a great hit with the class that was organized for boys only, this semester. Ask any of them if they haven't appreciated the work, learned how to handle their voices, and incidentally enjoyed a royal study. These boys canlt show you everything about voice culture but they can testify that they know something about their own voices and can appreciate good singing and under- stand it much better than the boy who has never done it. Have you a voice worth culti- vating? If you have you may be a second VVitherspoon. The class is doing excellent work and is well repaid for its interest. eases Our Faculty Orchestra Another of Tech's organizations has claim to a prominent place in the lime-light and is worthy of special mention, the faculty or- chestra which is composed of the following faculty members: lVlr. Ries, Mr. Boggy, lXfiss Clifford, lyfiss Dutton, Violin, lXlr. Gillespie, lXfIr. Amick, cornet, Mr. Dobson, trombone, hffr. Barker, saxophone, Mr. Griffin, clarinet, Miss Kaltz, piano. The orchestra has been faithful in rehears- ing and so has presented several excellent con- certs during the term. ooooo Olive lVIcI-Taffy likes cream-puffs. Katherine McCarthy is a wonderful dancer. Chorus Classes lXlr. Barker's chorus classes have been doing some remarkably good work this semester. The following accounts will prove what they have accomplished. Qeooo Third H our Chorus The third hour chorus comes in for its share of praise, for it has accomplished a great deal this semester. The officers elected were as follows: Hartly Newton, president, Blanche Jolley, vice-presi- dent, John Loftus, secretary, Harry Smith, treasurer, Donald Speer, sergeant-at-arms, lXlalcolrn Kelly, librarian, Paul Sylvester, attorney-general, and Lucille Conway, publicity committee. A concert committee chose the talented members of the class to take part in the concert which was given May twentieth. The work covered has proved very beneficial to the stud- ents who have enjoyed a successful term in this group. Lucille Conway QQQQQ The Fifth Hour Chorus Class To raise the standards of chorus work, and to become an accomplished chorus-has been the aim of the fifth hour class in chorus, this semester. Their greatest endeavor has been to learn music, and they have mastered this to quite an extent, and to discover and develop the various talents, of the different students. Those who have desired grades better than the average have sung solos while others have played on such instruments as the piano, violin, and saxophone. The members of the class decided that by organizing, the class could work with more co- operation. These officers were elected to guide their work: Donald Bruce, president, Helen Erber, vice-president, Cranston lyfugg, secre- tary, Lester Ford, treasurer, Robert Finney, sergeant-at-arms. A program committee was appointed with Cranston Mugg as chairman. Claude Brewer. oeeoe Sixth Hour Chorus This is to let those who have not already heard of the famous sixth hour chorus club, know something about the work it has done this term. As the necessity for officers became ap- parent the following were chosen: president, Maurice Fitzwater, vice-president, Alice Mc- Carthy, secretary, Leo Duncan, treasurer, f THE ARsEN xl, CANNON Sf' Zelma hlatthewsg sergeant-at-arms, Lester Livingstong Z1'f'KOI'I1Cj'-QC11CI'Lll, Kliles Yaneeg librarian, La Donna Lamb. A concert committee devoted their time to preparing that wonderful concert which some of you had the privilege of hearing. This chorus has held its own with any of the other clubs. Leo Duncan. 04945049 Eighth Hour Chorus Stopl Look! Listenl That is what every- body did, the eighth hour in the Barracks, Klay nineteenth. What did they see? Xkhat did they hear? 'Whatl A concert! A splendid concert it was too, given by Klr. Barkers eighth hour chorus class. All who heard it went away feeling that such a live and har- monious group was a credit to Tech. In February this class organized, electing the following officers: president, Rolla Uiilleyg vice-president, Anne Rogersg secretary, Frances Boyd, treasurer, Linton Atkinson: publishing agent, Stanley Wvilliamsg librarian, Jack Wiley, sergeant-at-arms, Ted Xicholasg attorney-gem eral, Noble Adams. Business meetings have been held every week. The result of their splendid work was the concert given in Klay. Three cheers for this class. Tech'S Band "Oo-oo Xlother, look, those boys are try- ing to swallow their horns." Xlistake. They weren't trying to. They were. The little girl was watching the band and her attention was attracted to the slide trombone section. Did you hear the Tech band at the joint band concert? If you didn't you missed some- thing. The slide trombones made a great showing, as did Xkayne Yan Sickle and lrwin Carlin in the cornet duet. Of course you were at the Supreme Day exercises and heard the band concert. Some band! 58'-Count 'em- SS. And don't forget that there are 18 boys in the Drum Corps Cpronounced core, not corpse as the little freshie called ith for we assure you that this Drum Corps is not a dead one. And, did you know that Tech has the only high school bassoon and oboe players around this part of the country? Those having: the honor to play these unusual instruments are Xlaurice Walters, bassoon, and Harry Jesse, oboe. Altogether, we will say, some Bandlll 00000 A victory comes to him who knows how to take defeat. 90 THE ARSENAL CANNON The Spirits of Tech The Girls' Glee Club under the direction of lyliss Kaltz, has grown to be one of the most important factors at Tech. Full of originality, pep and enthusiasm, it has furnished so much school spirit on all occasions that now students hope to see it featured on every program. The white middy suits with black ties are a familiar costume on the campus and are always greeted with joy for they signify a treat. The chorus is indeed the connecting link that binds all the four thousand students together. You have heard these girls at pep meetings, at class plays, in the lunchrooms, at your parties, and in your roll-rooms. Each time you have waited anxiously to hear what new origi- nal song they would sing. You have caught the tunes and the words and have found your- self singing them on the campus. By your ap- plause you have forced them to sing again and again. They seem to be tireless, their originality is endless, their pep is everlasting. Surely they are one of the biggest assets of Tech. Qfvooo The Nature Study Club The Nature Study Club consists of about fifty wide awake students and teachers who take pleasure in getting up with the birds in the morning, and going out while the dew is on the grass, and the air is cool and refreshing. This is by all means the best part of the day. The club has had regular meetings each Vlied- nesday afternoon. Sometimes formal programs consisting of poems or talks on birds, wild flowers, trees and other kindred topics have been given. Often Saturday hikes have been taken in the woods and parks in the vicinity of Indianapolis, and by these various methods an opportunity has been afforded for any one interested, to cultivate a love for, and an ap- preciation of, the beauties of nature which are slighted by so many of us in our busy lives. These are esthetic pleasures which make life fuller, richer, and more worth the living. And what credit do we get for this activity? Longer, happier, more useful lives, thrilled each spring by the never-failing return of our dearly loved friends, the birds and the wild flowers. Rich experiences of this kind build up a life-long enthusiasm which never grows dim even in later years when the footsteps may falter. The crowning event of this semester's ac- tivity was the "VVild Flower Show," during which flfty-five species of wild flowers were brought in from the woods and set out on the Technical campus. The Nature Study Club is sowing seed for future harvests. The ofllcers have been the following: pres- ident, O. K. lXfIcKittrick, Jr, vice-president, Vernon Smith, secretary, Sue Anna Engle, and treasurer, Lucille Pritchard. The colors are the colors of the bluebird, Yale blue and burnt orange. 45476459 The Outside IVIu,sic Club The Outside Music Club, since its organ- ization, has been one of the most important clubs of the school. Its members are pupils studying with outside teachers who may re- ceive credit, providing their school work is satisfactory. This credit-giving feature. has been a valuable addition to the curriculum. The pupil is required to follow a definite out- lined course, thus working with a definite aim. Not only must a member be taking music but he must also study harmony either at Tech or with an outside teacher. Programs which are one of the interesting features of the club are given every month. Each pupil has a chance to perform at least once during the term. But there is some leisure in the club for it has at least one social feature during the semester. The including of outside music work in the high school curriculum, through this club, is a great stride in musical lines in the public schools. Florence Lesher. oeeee Voice Culture Class Attentionl Have you heard, during the third hour, as you stood near the second floor of the Artillery building, some singing that you thought was the Opera Club, Glee Club, or chorus class? Did you know that there was such a thing as a voice culture class at Tech? VVell, there is and has been for four semesters and that is what you heard. The girls vocalize at this hour and as you listen you might think you were in New York passing the hffetropolitan Opera House in- stead of a building at Tech. If you hear a girl say she is going to the vocal gym, she means the voice culture class for here the girls exercise their voices just the same as the girls exercise their bodies in gymnasium. The class which numbers twenty-four is under the di- rection of lNIr. Frank E. Percival. The object of the class is to develop better singers in Tech and in our city, Indianapolis. Cathryne Roberts. 1 I' - f.,-"3 The Opera Club The Opera Club, an organization in the lvlusic department, under Nlr. Percival, is just a yearling. In our school life, if we have no other interests besides that of study, we often overdo ourselves and become unpleasant and unhappy. The Opera Club is a place to let off that surplus nervous energy. The people in the Club become so concentrated over the Opera to be given that season, that nervousness gradually Wears away. Talent shines out brightly in this club as was nobody illustrated by the last opera "The hflaid and The lVIiddy," by Stevens. This opera was given just before Santa Claus time, at the lylurat Theatre. Although the price of the tickets was not sky high, the Opera was a success. Besides having a regularjovial time in learning to dance and sing artistically a credit is given for belonging to a real organization. So tune up, crank up, get ready to tryout for the Opera Club in the first week of the coming Fall semester. NVatch your step, and the bulletin or there will be "wailing and gnashing of teeth," for there will be only one tryout, rain or shine. Come out, one and all,for the tryout is open to every one on the campus. hilary H. VVinchell. 00000 Ida llay Neal is another one who loves to smile.

J M 'E' g tcnis For the first time in two years the military training at Tech has not been compulsory. Consequently, the companies have been much smaller than usual. However, the old adage 'Great things come in small packagesi' holds true in this department. At the beginning of the semester six companies having a total enroll- ment of about eleven hundred students were formed. The instruction this year has been very comprehensive, covering all matters of import- ance to the soldier. The main part of the work has been in Infantry Drill. At the first of the year the students received instructions in the school of the soldier. They progressed rapidly through the school of the platoon and company. Section drill was soon completed and then rifles were given the men who were then instructed in the manual of arms. After the work in extended order and ceremonies was completed competitions were held between the various units of the company. On the brisk, wintry mornings the boys were warmed up by some good muscle building physical training. During the days when out- of-doors drilling was impossible practical lec- tures were given on military courtesy, woodcraft map reading, guard, duty camping, scouting, patroling, and leadership. These lectures have not only been of the type that are helpful to the soldier, but also have contained much of prac- tical and theoretical value to anyone. As soon as the weather became favorable the instructions given in the lectures were put to actual use in the drill field. Patrols were formed and were shown their proper movements and formations, pup tents were pitched and the soldier's equipment was laid out for inspection. The men were also shown how to care for their rifies. Instruction in rifle marksmanship was given to all of the companies. Then the best men were selected to shoot on the rifle team. The team did some exceptional work shooting with the best in the country. According to Captain Edwards the best shot in school is hlajor Ed- ward Allred who averages, for the semester's shooting, ninety-five out of a possible one hundred. This is remarkable shooting for boys of high school age. On lNfIay the twenty-third, in the celebration held in honor of Supreme Day, the Military department aided materially by furnishing over forty standard bearers. A regimental parade of note held sway in the school on the twenty-ninth of NIay. Toward the end of the semester inspectors of the fifth corps area gave the outfit a formal looking- over and it was accredited as being one of the best trained units in the area. The record of the R. O. T. C. companies is indeed one of which all Tech can be proud. Sherwood Blue. 04949490 Our AI. T. Instructors ,4 ,W ,W Capt. Edwards, Sgts. Short, Pruett. VVolfe The military department has been very fortunate in receiving the most competent instructors. Our chief, Captain Edwards, a retired captain, has seen twenty-four years of active service. He has been stationed at all the places which American troops have visited. He has traver- sed all the rivers in China, aiding in quelling the Boxer rebellion there. The Philippine Islands, and Cuba were his mainlocations dur- ing the Spanish-American war. He reports that the "wild man from Borneo" is as civilized as an Indianapolis society belle. He was stationed in Servia during the world war. He is the proud possessor of a six year old daughter, whom he boldly asserts has travelled more than any other child, its own age, in the world. Vile doubt not the veracity of this statement. Sergeant Short, who is responsible for the good work of our rifle team, has shown his fine ability as a soldier in many ways. He served as a captain in the Aviation department during the world war, where he rendered distinguished service. He has studied law as a side line while soldiering. life agree with him when he says, 'fVVhat it takes to make a lawyer, Ilve got," and could substitute soldier for lawyer as well. Our authority on all military science and tactics. Sergeant Viiolfe, was a neophite in the army in 1911. His record is a secret due to his 94 THE ARSENAL CANNON modesty. We did learn, however, that he served in fine fashion over seas and now holds the commission of first lieutenant in the reserve corps. Wihen asked concerning his military activities, he answered that his was uservice, continuous, honest and faithful." W'e know that it has been, and add that it is a fine record. Sergeant Pruett, the man who toots the whis- tle for the companies to form at the beginning of each period, is a man of no mean ability as a soldier. He was with the 'fgood men" who enlisted in 1911, as were Sergeants Short and VVolfe. His attentive action in his first enlist- ment soon won for him the promotions of first class private, corporal, sergeant, and to top the list, he was appointed gun commander. This was the speediest rise of any soldier who had come under the notice of his company commander. This, however, is only character- istic of his good work. He rendered disting- uished service Hover there" as a captain in the infantry. He is still rendering the same type of service over here in our military department. Captain lVIcIntosh, our youngest in point of service, entered the army from Rhode Island State College in 1916. He served with the cavalry in VVyoming and Arizona until the outbreak of the war. Eighteen months of dash- ing service is the record of our captain over seas. Since then he has been on recruiting service, in charge of the military department at Ohio Northern University. In November, 1291, he was assigned to duty in the Indianapo- lis high schools where he has been active ever since. During his six years of service he has been solely under the charge of the army but recently he has taken a new commanding office by entering the ranks of matrimony. He avows that he will keep step with her, dur- ing the rest of his life. lVe realize that perhaps we have not told all that could be told about the soldierly lives of these splendid officers but you, reader, must attribute that to their gentlemanly modesty.

Bottom row: Viloolgar, Nipper, Greenburg, -IeH'ry, Unger. Basketball Season The season of 1921-1922 found the team struggling to overcome obstacle after obstacle. As in 1920-21 the football and basketball sea- ons overlapped. For this reason a team was organized in the first part of the school year to play the first part of the schedule. This team had but little time to practice as the new gym in the shops had not been completed. As a re- sult of their inexperience and lack of practice, they lost a number of games, but they always displayed the "win or bust" spirit which has gained fame for the Green and Wliite. In the meantime, a new team composed of football men had been organized. The teams finally got into the new gym during Christmas vacation. Their troubles were not over, how- ever. There was no heat in the new gym, and as a result many of the players caught severe colds and were kept out of the game. The new team started its schedule the first of the year. They met with some defeats but finally started their victories against Male High of Louisville. A week later they decisively de- feated Nlartinsville. From this time on the team had a very creditable record. Pre-tournament dope gave Tech the edge in the sectional. VVhen the draw was completed, however, it was found that Tech must meet the three strongest teams in the county outside of Indianapolis before reaching the finals. NIanual, the probable finalist in the other half of the draw, had an easy schedule. Tech conquered Southport, the winner of the county tournament, in the lirst game 26 to 11. In the second round they won a hard fought battle from VVest Newton 15 to 10. The team THE ARSENAL CANNON 97 narrowly escaped disaster at the hands of Val- ley hlills in the semi-final round, but nosed them out 15 to 9. Saturday evening, hfarch 25, for the third consecutive time, a team wearing the Green and llvhite came out on the floor for the final game of the sectional tournament. They were nearly exhausted from the hard schedule but on their faces was that 'fdo or dien expression which has characterized every team that Tech has put out. The fresh hlanual team had the battle of its life that night. Time after time the tired Green and lYhite crept up to a tie and forged ahead. The spectators went wild. Such a game had nev- er before been seen in Indianapolis. The Ye Famous Nipper: Bob's last year at Tech proved to be a banner one for him in basketball. He played a whale of a game at floor guard all during the season. The forward who got past "Nip,'was certainly Worthy of his spurs. Nipper was easily the most finished guard in the sectional tournament. He has closed a brilliant high school career and will always be remembered. Greenburg: After a year's experience on the state squad Greenburg proceeded to hold down the center job in great style. 4'Tommy's" remarkable eye for the basket seemed never to fail him, and he always came through with some field goals when they were needed. He specialized in causing star opposing forwards to lose their reputations. "Tommy,' also graduates this year, leaving an enviable record. Adkins, VVoolgar and -lefry: lVe would like to talk about the members of this trio of forwards separately, but it can,t be done. They always worked together. Sport scribes have bemoaned the fact that there were few good guards in the state this season. Vlfe attribute this condition to two things: firstg the star guards of opposing teams becoming disgusted with life after futile attempts to stop this trio of forwards either went insane or committed suicide, second, these forwards made the guards, who remained in the game, look so foolish that they could not be taken seriously. Adkins and VVoolgar leave school this year to search for new worlds to conquer. Jefry will return to continue his career of distinction. Unger: After trying his hand at about every position on the team, Unger finally task before the boys f-Q - - A We as was too great. The spirit was there but their bodies were ex- hausted. They lost ' ' e. 31 to 25. But they went down to a glor- ious defeat, uith colors flying and guns booming, fight- ing to the last for the honor of old Tech. l T 'tet J- ' 1 B ERYL BLACK Basketball and Track Basketeers settled down at back guard and immediately proved that that position was his home. To see Unger come charging would make the average quake in his shoes. Few shots were registered while Unger was on the was to to the out from his lair basketball under the player basket job. 'fPax',never left home unless it dribble the ball through the position other end of the floor so that it would be in Tech territory. This was one of his favorite plays and was especially appreciated by the spectators. hfurphy : A fighting guard was he. Charlie held a regular's job for a good part of the season but illness kept him out of the last games. He specialized at back guard and could always be depended on to straighten things out. His steadiness on the floor line got many points. Jolly: Jolly was a player who could always be depended upon in case of the inability of the regular guards. lValter was equally at home in the floor guard or backguard positions, and made his presence known in either. He always lived up to his name and never lost his smile. Jolly has another year to play and should go big next season. VVilson: This player was always ready to take up the good workin either guard or forward position, playing both positions equally well. Louis leaves us this year, also. Scott: Scott was an exceedingly fast forward who often turned the tables when things were going wrong. He was the only player on the state team, besides Jolly, who played from the very first part of the season. "Scott" was a hard fighter and never quit until the final gun. Harold Harris.

The committee thinks that the change in the foul rule which will do away with about one-third of the scoring from fouls, will improve the game all around. The new rule, suggested by the sub-committee, provides a penalty which has never been known before to basketball, namely, that of giving the ball into the hands of the opponents after a technical foul has been made. The new technical foul rule reads as follows: 'fVVhen the technical foul is made, the ball is awarded to the opponents at the point where the foul is committed, with the right to put the ball into play with an unguarded pass. They shall not be permitted to dribble or shoot for goal." Now the personal foul has been changed some but notias much as its brother rule. There will be a certain area of the Hoor which will be the worst place to commit a personal foul. If the foul is made in this danger zone, then the penalty will be the greater than if it had been made on some other part of the floor. This danger zone will be in a semi-circle with its center at the basket, and its radius seventeen feet. If the foul is committed in this circle, the penalty will be two free throws. Outside this circle the personal foul rule will remain as before with one free throw. This will probably make players more careful and will give a personally fouled person his rights, Howard Caldwell.

Tech's Track Team The first meet held this year was a prelimin- ary meet, which was very encouraging to the Green and VVhite. The old stars proved that they still knew their stuff and quite a few new members showed that they would be worth watching. The season started off with a loss to Ander- son, but to recompense this, our men defeated Shortridge and Niartinsville in a tri- angular meet 59-22-18, respectively, and then downed Richmond 69-22 in a dual meet. This year Tech was somewhat stronger on the cinders than in the held. Not to say that they were exactly weak in the held-far from it-but that the held entries were not as liable to break state records as the track men. Glen Gray stood out as one of our best men. The holder ofthe state record in the 220 went good and may be heard from in the state in the 220 and 100. Jack Velsey will turn hand- springs and tie himself into knots going over the high hurdles, but he'll get there. Blakesley in the quarter, Lewis in the half, hlaxwell in the mile, Graham in the pole vault, and also Langlais stood out. Ninety-seven men entered the sectional, representing Tech, hlanual, Shortridge, Sheri- dan, Southport, Noblesville, Fishers, Forts- Ville, and Greenfield. Of these ninety-seven, Tech had twenty men entered. The lucky twenty who were giv- en a chance to win glory for their school were: 100-yard dash-Gray, Gude, Langlais. 220-yard dash-Gray, Gude, Smith. -H0-yard dash-Blakesley, Langlais, linger.

Kneeling: Schultze, Adkins, Ewing, Jordon, Mills. YanArsdale, Baseball for 1922 Surely everyone at Tech must know that we-Tech-hold the High School Baseball Championship of the state of Indiana. VVe gained this honor by winning the finals at Lafayette in 1917. And so, to uphold this honor, three hundred loyalites turned out for baseball during the rainy month of April, 1922. To Nlr. Kingsolver, a former star performer of Franklin-and our new coach-was assigned the task of molding these 300 wild aspiring baseball players into a well-balanced and winning team. Not to be outdone by the preceding teams of Tech, this year's team went out to win-under their new leader-and win they did, yet in some cases the games were close, but in the majority of instances Tech came out on top. Thus to hir. Kingsolver, we of Tech, must give great praise, for he took up the reins of manager just where Klr. Crandall had left off, and he went plodding ahead, always with one view in mind, and that to make a better team than any that had been turned out at Tech before. The men left before the final cutting of the squad to twelve men were: Mills, Clift, jordan, Schetters, Gordan, Ad- kins, Carr, Schultz, Rush, German, Cain, Schetters Jolly, Behrman, Calvert, Ewing, Van Arsdal, Fults. 00000 Tennis for 1922 Tennis has always played a prominent part in Tech's history. The year, 1922, has been no exception. VVe have held a number of tourna- ments on the I. T. A. courts but never before had we had such advantages as we have enjoyed this year. These courts are recognized by all tennis enthusiasts as being second to none in the city. The great treat which Tech students were allowed to take advantage of was permission to play on these courts outside of their regular assignments. This privilege was accorded them from the time that the courts opened to the end of the school year, and for only fifty cents. The result was just what could be ex- pected. Hundreds of enthusiastic racquet wielders took advantage of the offer. One of the best results of the use of these courts was that the students were able to get in a great deal of practice for the spring tournament. Tech tournaments have always been successes, but never before was there such a lzigh standard of tennis as displayed in this tournament. Tech is indeed a real tennis school. Harold Harris THE .-XRsEN.-it CANNON wi irls, Basketball This season has proved a most successful one for girls, basketball, especially when one con- siders how late the season started due to the lack of room. In January when a meeting was called, a large number of girls turned out for the sport and the interest manifested at the first, rapidly increased. Several teams were formed and a series of games was played under the direction of Miss Klclienzie and Bliss Howe. Two major teams, selected by Miss Abbett, practised every day during the ninth and tenth periods, for two weeks. At the end of this time eight girls were selected to constitute a team to play outside games. Their first game with lkfianual, on lVIanual's Hoor, ended in a defeat for Tech, 43-21. The next game with lXf1anual, on Tech's floor, ended with Tech at the small end of the score 25-19. Although our team lost both games, the scores indicate the im- provement made in a short time. The other games that the team has played: Shortridge -13 Tech 21 Hoosier Athletic Club 28 Tech 15 Butler 11 Tech 19 Y. VV. C.
