"I perceive, from the tea cups, Crichton, that
the great function is to take place here," sighed tlIe
Hon. Ernest Woolley' as he high-hatted his entrance
onto the stage of the Murat Theatre on the evening
of April nineteenth, nineteen hundred and twenty-
nine. The servants' tea, a monthly occurrence in
Lord Loam's establishment, depicted a very hilarious
"function" indeed. Absurdities and ridiculous sit-
uations created by the uncomfortable servants were
ludicrous. To Crichton, the perfect servant, the
affair was necessarily distasteful.
W'hen Lord Loam and his yachting party sud-
denly found themselves shipwrecked on an island,
they soon discovered the truth of Crichton's words
-"If we were to return to nature, my lady, the
same person might not be master: the same persons
might not be servants-." Indeed the situation was
completely reversed. Crichton assumed entire re-
sponsibility for everyone on the island and was
waited upon like a king by his adoring servants,
all of whom had been his superiors in England.
The three sisters loved him, but it was Lady Mary
whom he chose to love. At the exact moment
when their glorious life on the island seemed to
reach its heighth, they heard a ship's gun! Nature

W'hen you must to a photographer's go, 10 have
your pictures taken, you never look just like you
should: however that man makes 'em. And after
the proofs you receive, then comes the time when
you must grieve. Iior although they all may look
like you, not one of them seems just quite true! One
friend says, "Oh, I just love this oneln while an-
other says, "It makes you look as if you might
weigh a ton!" In one picture your grin is far too
wide, in another your nose resembles a slide! Your
eyes, your chin, your hairis not rightg in short,
those pictures are simply a fright!
And after the choosing of the best is done, you
always wish it had been :mother one. You decide
also which is the worst, deciding on that one the
camera was cursed. Then you decide to throw it
away, itis l1Ot a good picture, whatever they say.

through a cross examination as intense as any
ever given .1 criminal. She very generously repeated
that the judges were very kind, that they were the
only ones who saw the attempts, and th.It it wasn't
necessary to have studied dramatic art.
The bell rang. I tripped over to the lunch room,
trying to keep my feet as well as those of others
from splashing my hose. Quickly I dabbed my nose
with my powder puHi, opened the door, and with
trembling knees faced the judges.
An hour later I emerged. I had tried out. It was
like going to the dentist-not so bad when it's Over.
Many members of Techis class of '29 need only
to refer 10 their birth certificates to learn of that
which has been brought to light. Yes! Thatis it!
Tech was born a little less than seventeen years ago,
and so were many of us.
Even the trees on the campus seem to realize this
highly esteemed honor that has been naturally be-
stowed upon us. They appear to be nodding with
approval and admiration, and their leaves, to be
whispering, "You are truly Techis nrst-born

the renewing of the dear, familiar past: but to
Crichton and Mary it was a stunning blow, for
they knew that only On an island was he the "best
man among them."

"Say, run through the holdover! We need a fea-
ture for this columnf, shouted the make-up editor
through a half-open door to Bob. The reporter
rummaged through some files, soon returned with
the desired type, and hastily retreated into the
background of the bustling newspaper oflice.
Reporters dashed here and there, scraping their
chairs, pounding out stories on noisy typewriters,
and tossing their "scoops" on the editor's desk.
The rustle of papers and the rasping of shears des-
ignated the horse-shoe copy table in a far corner of
the large, active room. There with their scissors
and paste pots, the copy editors, tapping their blue
pencils as they figured headlines or counted ems,
slashed the work of the reporters. Copy boys hur-
riedly answered calls to dash with copy to the make-
up room. Newspapers rattled as the society and
sports editors hunted through them for special
stories. Telephones jangled. Editors commanded
imperially. Conversation-slamming doors-click-
ing typewriters-ringing bells-the newspaper oflice
was in full swing.
Bob wearily sank into his seat and finished his
small society item. "Society item!" thought the de-
spondent reporter bitterly. Yes, five years in this
newspaper otlice, and no raise, no advancement,
not even a commendation from the hurried editors
whose infrequent compliments were the salt of life.
Society items! In his live-year sojourn in this office
his "scoops,' had been few and far between. Anthony
and Tom had earned recognition by their clever
feature, news, and sob stories on that B. and O.
accident two years before. Anthony was now at the
copy table, Tom was assisting the city editor, and
he was still a reporter.
He saw the editor grab the telephone receiver
from the hook. He sat up eagerly. Perhaps it was
his time! Tense, he waited for the call. He knew all
the other reporters were busy. It surely was his
chance now! "Bob! You busy?" called the editor.
"No!" the boy jumped up.
"Then, go finish Collins, follow-up story on the
traflic ordinance while he attends to this new head-
Phil Collins happily tossed his paper over to Bob,
received a few instructions from the boss, and made
a hasty exit. Bob resignedly finished Phil's holdover
article and handed it over to Simpson, the editor.
"Pretty good follow-up!" was the only comment.
Yes, pretty good! But never was he good enough
to be sent out on these big events. He wasn't classi-
fied as a specialty of any sort. He was remarkable

Phil later ran into the oflice, slammed his papers
on the editor's desk, and said, "Sob stories?"
"Yeh! Make 'em snappy,', answered the man,
reading the story hastily before handing it to the
copy readers. "Swell story!" he later called to Phil,
who flushed with pleasure.
neither in sob, straight, nor
helped the others out. He was
The next week Phil was advanced to the Sunday
staff. Bob sardonically considered his probable pros-
pects as an errand boy. He walked up to Phil, how-
ever, with a happy-go-lucky grin to congratulate
him on his promotion but turned his head just in
time to hide a moist look of longing in his eyes.
Phil thought, "A happy fellow!"
Weeks passed, Bob still sat at his typewriter re-
flecting on how fortunate it was that he was not
a stringman. To keep the boss from noting that he
was not working, he began typing anything to pass
away the time. First, it was trash, mere sarcastic
ramblings and pessimistic satire. He then began to
take interest and to experiment in words, phrases,
and sentences. He had forgotten all about essays
and short stories during the last few years on ac-
count of the engrossing work of the reporter's
grind, now he tried to recall old rules. Finding it
futile, he recorded memories, ideas, and opinions,
in whatever style they presented themselves, grad-
ually going off in tangents of short stories. He
began to practice research work both for his own
pleasure and for the verification of his "story facts."
He grew so well acquainted with the files on this
account that the editors always called Bob for the
casual hunts in the morgue.
He was interrupted in his literary basket-cram-
ming process one morning by hearing the boss de-
mand, "Bob, hunt the morgue for Stevens' life."
"Stevens?" queried Bob, pushing back his chair.
"Yes,,' Collins explained, thumbing a torn, red-
penciled copy, uthe great editor who died several
years ago today."

"Oh, all rightf' and Bob departed for the files.
The first thing he extracted from the dusty rec-
ords was a straight biography of that famous old
editor, familiarly known as l'Red." Bob recalled
that editor's reputation for never passing by a
talented writer. He wondered what "Red" would
have said about him. A personal interview he next
pulled out, and, attracted by the title, "Editor
Urges Reporters," he read the first sentence. "The
holdover is often the best." "Yeh, why'd he ever
invent that fool verse?" Bob grumbled, as he seized
the remainder of the copy and hastened to the othce.

city, reporters were yet darting madly among the

had advanced to assistant managing editor, and
Phil Collins occupied his place. In the background
of all the usual buzz and bustle sat Bob, apparently
writing busily. He had become, in his careless words.
a permanent fixture. He was still waiting for that
thrilling moment when Collins should call, "Attend
to this headliner, Bob!"
Slumped in his seat, he did not raise his head
when with exasperation he heard for the fiftieth time
during the last few minutes the city editor's tele-
phone buzz and Collins say, "Thanks, I'll send a
man immediately." He hardly dared hope that Col-
lins should call "Bob!" But finally that strange-
sounding name rang out across the room. A wave
of excitement convulsed him. Rushing over to Col-
lins, he discovered that a prominent politician had
been found murdered in the Ferron hotel, and
slamming the door behind him, he hastened to the
scene of action.
He had embarked on that hour which was long
remembered in the later years: the rush to the
hotel, the interviews with maid, coroner, friend,
hotel-keeper, and police, the hunt through the
newspaper morgue for the life of the murdered Mr.
Craig, the assembling of facts, the click of the
typewriter, the last proud glance at the completed
copy, the final triumphant toss on Collins' desk.
His "scoop" was done well, he thought.
Collins ran his eye quickly over it. "XVhat's this?"
Bob replied, "Craig's murder!
Uncomprehendingly and dazed, he faintly heard
Collins brutally announce, "Oh, that was in half
an hour ago. Poe, who was on the scene, forked it.
I might give you some follow-ups, later!"
With a faint shrug Bob pulled his chair back and
XVeeks later manuscripts were still piling up in
the battered box hidden under Bob's desk, and the
long-time reporter was daily becoming more dis-
couraged, more pessimistic, when one day Collins
called, "Bob, get the holdover! The make-up boss
is calling for Hllerf'
"Take me," Bob muttered as he obeyed and
handed the type over to the editor. After a lapse
of thirty minutes he was peremptorily summoned
to the desk.
"What,s this?" Collins demanded.
One hasty glance was enough to make a slow
flush suffuse the embarrassed face of the formerly
debonair reporter. "Oh, some of my old junk, my
own holdover. I was afraid to get another rejection
slip on it. Must have picked it up by mistake," he
stammered, snatching it up and retreating uncere-
"Wait!" called Phil. "Why didn't you tell me you
wrote things like this? This story is great, I tell
you. Take it to the Sunday editor for the magazine
section. Tell him it's Collins, orderf,
Skeptical Bob was dumbfounded. To think that
that old junk was called great, by an editor. Why,
it could be termed a "scoop." A "scoop"! His long-
awaited chance! With an elastic step he pushed an
eager path to the othce of the Sunday editor and
went in. "I-I have a short story here," he began,
"for the magazine section."
"Oh, we're full up. Haven't room for a cub re-
porter's feeble attempts!" the editor responded
Bob's ire arose. A cub reporter, indeed! After
eight years! He straightened and said, "It's Collins,
The editor jerked a quizzical eyebrow. "Oh, it is,
is it? XVell, leave it here. That'll do!" and he
turned to his work.
Bob left, trembling as if he had been in contact
with an editor for the first time in his life instead
of having associated with editors for eight years.
The following Sunday a full-page story called

"Thanks, Bob. Sorry to bother you."

To the amazement and wonder of all who know In the sunny land where the Indian dwells there
me, I delight in going to church. To walk in a few
minutes after the services have started and to listen
unobserved to the anthem which rises and swells
is an unwearying joy to me. I like to slip in and
join the singing, my voice blending with the others
till it becomes a part of the one chorus.
Xvhen the singing comes to an end, my interest
dies in the service itself, and I begin to look about
me with merriment, hard sometimes to conceal.
The bald pate of an extremely large gentleman
directly in front of me shines temptingly. Thoughts
of how funny it would be to tickle it with a feather
pass through my mind.
Such interesting color harmonies present them-
selves in church! A lady attracts my eyes. Her
dress is a hectic red, her hat a vivid green, her scarf
a flaming yellow. They are enough to attract the
eyes of anyone. The self-satisfied expression of her
face makes me choke back a too-willing chuckle.
Another worshiper, with a plain, determined face,
wears a creation of a hat! Picture it if you can, a
black velvet hat, surmounted with pink roses in
great numbers. She is one of the type who agrees
vigorously with the minister at times. Her roses

mind that they resemble in their walk and carriage,

The prayer always follows. The organist plays
some sweet melody, and the minister walks down
the aisle. It is over. I always wonder, when I shake
hands with him, if he thinks I have listened atten-
tively. I hope so, and each Sunday I firmly resolve
to do so, but my intentions are of no avail. My
mind will wander to my fellow-beings in church.

once lived Mandioca, a warrior of the Blackfoot
tribe. He was a very warlike brave, always waging
war on the peace-loving tribes.
One day a tribe of the Sioux, being tired of
Mandioca's continual plundering, decided to give
him a maiden for his bride if he would renounce
his warlike ways. Choque, the maiden who was se-
lected, agreed to marry him. He promised to put
away his tomahawk and live peacefully with his
bride. They lived in peace for a long while.
One hot summer day a wicked Indian, Yellow
Tooth, came to the peaceful lodge. He told Man-
dioca that there were fine scalps to be had from a
tribe of the Sioux who were encamping in a nearby
valley. Mandioca, thrilled by the thought of scalps,
eagerly joined Yellow Tooth's war party. Yellow
Tooth and his band came home victorious, having
taken many scalps.
That night Choque pleaded with Mandioca, re-
minding him of his promise, but all in vain. Man-
dioca threatened to kill Choque and told her they
would go on the warpath the following day.
Though Choque begged him to live in peace, he
talked of nothing but the scalps he would take.
The next day when Mandioca and the braves had
gone, Choque prayed to the Great Spirit. Then,
taking a blazing brand from the Hre, she lit the
wigwam, standing in the midst of it herself. Mandi-
oca returned from the battle just in time to see
the embers dying out. just as the last bit of smoke

It had been so hot and sultry during the morning
and early afternoon that the very air seemed to be
composed mostly of stifling dust. Late in the after-
noon a cloud passed over the sun. Soon the sky,
which just a few hours before had been a hazy blue,
was turned to a mass of angry, swelling, bla-sk
clouds. Then all was still. The wind did not stir
enough to make even the slightest tremor in the
leaves on the trees. A low rumble of thunder and
a flash of lightning heralded the approach of the
coming storm. The first few drops of rain fell,
and it seemed only a few moments until the storm
was at the peak of its fury.

Wliile still a very young specimen of manhood,
I went to visit friends in Cincinnati, Ohio. On the
third day of my visit my chum suggested that we
go to Chester Park for a swim. I objected, saying
that I did not know how to swim, but finally, I
allowed myself to be persuaded into going. Arriv-
ing at the park, we hurriedly undressed and wrig-
gled into bathing suits, and then raced for the pool.
My companion executed a perfect dive into the
water, but I stopped on the edge of the beach and
wondered what I would do. In the pool were two
large slides. One of these I climbed, but before
sliding down, I hesitated-maybe I was losing my
nerve. Oh! what a sad day it was for me for there
the water was eight feet deep and this I did not
know. After several false starts the third attempt
was successful, and I zipped down that slide faster
than any Twentieth Century Limited ever went.
My head hit the water with such force that it
rattled every bone in my body, and the number of
stars in the sky were small in comparison to those
that I saw at that time. I slid through the water
swifter than a greased eel and felt my feet gently
touch the bottom of the pool. Wallsiiig around
under water may be a lot of fun when you know in
what direction youlre going, but when it means
death to go one way and life to go the other, itls
not such a funny proposition. I donlt know whether
I said a prayer or not as I wandered around under
the water. But, miracle of miracles, just as I was
giving up all hope, my head rose above the water.
So great was my relief and happiness that I felt
like proclaiming the day a national holiday.

A moonbeam shimmering through the trees,
A shaft of light, a fairy face,

She dances in the soft night breeze-

beneath him a wagon train crawled through rhe

for its eyes two horsemen who looked suspiciously
about, as if sensing danger. The scout, remaining
in the same position, stared below. Suddenly he
jerked his elbows from the ground and lay flat,
hugging the ground, his finger tips clutching the
bare rock. Something he had heard surprised him.
Lying motionless for a long time, he listened for
any other sounds which might reveal the presence
of an enemy. Satisfied, however, he raised his elbows
to resume his former position.
After staring below for some time, he drew back
into the sagebrush. The wagon train which had
passed was now forming a close circle for the night

The Sfufuc' of Liberty
A foreigner coming to the United States feels
a thrill when he sees the Statue of Liberty. She
seems to welcome strangers to our country. If a
foreigner thinks of the Statue of Liberty with such
feeling of reverence, would not an American child
think of her with still greater feeling?
As I stand on a certain terrace in a large park
overlooking New York Bay, gazing at the Statue
of Liberty, a surge of patriotism thrills me. One
visit to this terrace stands out above the rest. One
evening just before sunset we climb to the terrace
for a special treat. The sun's fading rays play on
the statue and as it sinks, burnish it with gold.
Dusk envelops us as we play around waiting for
the event of the evening,--not only of the evening,
but of a whole lifetime. The lights surrounding
the base of the statue are to be turned on in Wash-
ington by President Wilson!
It is now almost pitch dark. The expected mo-
ment has almost arrived. Gluing our eyes on the
spot where we know the statue to be, we wait.

Few endowments, but worthwhile,
Have Dame Fortune on me smile.
Give Thy blessings when I call,
Lift me up whene'er I fall.
Toward these things I now aspire,
If of them I do acquire,
Then my life will be well spent-
I shall leave with vast content.

jmigtg "You saw him?" the lad whispered.
It is the fading hour of sunset. In a moment the
glowing sun will have dropped behind the wavering
line of the horizon, and the sky will slowly fade to
darkness. A great calm lies upon the waves as they
gently beat against the prow of the ancient mer-
chant vessel, and sweetly herald the coming night.
Now, even the sounds of living men are hushed as
if in adoration of the hour. The golden glow upon
the silent waves is turning darker and darker, and
now the waters are a deep dark blue. In their
depths I see again the youth I was.
Long ago I once stood on deck, a lad tired and
worn from the day,s task, a lad who had come to
sea for his first taste of the rover's life. In the
pockets of the ragged trousers, which were much
too long and wide, a pair of dirty hands were at
rest. Through the great tear in the grimy grey shirt,
the resolute shoulders gleamed at the dusk and re-
vealed to the heavens the courage of a lad, but his
eyes, blue sea eyes, were upon the towering figure of
Lan, the ship's first-mate. Bronzed by the long years
upon the waters, he stood, swaying slightly to the
rise and fall of the ship upon the waves, his feet
far apart, after the manner of seamen, and his
hands clutching at the rail. His red lips were part-
ed, and in his eyes was a dream.
A laugh floated out as a last farewell to the sun,
and Lan turned swiftly, his
the worshipping youth. I-Ie

They belonged, both of them, to the dreamers of
Norfolk, the dreamers, who for hundreds of years
had answered the call of the trackless sea.
"Lad Aaron, ye too have heard the sea-maid call,
by chance, ye may have seen her sweet pale face,
but lad, yonder, in the blue-black waves, the old
man of the sea himself dwells. I-Ie rules the land
beneath the waves. Once I saw him.
"I was standing upon the deck of my first ship,
The Wirlff, and watching the moon above when I
heard a dripping of water beside me and turned.
A man in the prime of his years stood at my side.
From his flowing green beard, ragged clothes, and
his green face, the sea water dripped until a great
pool lay at his feet and glistened in the moonlight.
I looked into his eyes, they shone like jewels in the
darkness, and I loved him. Time passed, the mo-
ments and hours alike, but we forgot Time in the
unspoken friendship that had corne to us. A breele

began to blow, making the black waves beneath
us dance. 'The night is beautiful. I have waited so
long to see it with you!' sighed the man of the sea.
"I spake to comfort him, but he was not. The
moon, I think, had carried him away. I never saw
A sad silence fell upon the night, enveloping the
man and the boy. The wind itself, as if by magic,
sprang up and moaned, calling sadly to the waves
and the sky.
"Perchance," the dreamer, Lan, replied.
"But the pool of water?"
The dream is over, the past is gone, only the
dreary present remains. All is darkness now, and
the stars that seemed so close but a moment before
are high in the heavens, and their light is so dim
that I scarce can discern the very ship upon which
I sail on my wild journey. The gloomy blackness is
come and now again the shouts of living men are
heard. The dream is over, and my boisterous friends
are calling from below.
Fishing-the sport for the real sportsman! It is
not for the greedy, the impatient, the ill-tempered,
it is for the sportsman only. Its thrills and joys
are found in every lake, pond. or stream.
Long before the sun has awakened, I open my
eyes to find the heavy veil of night still unfathoma-
ble. After exercising my will-power to a consid-
erable extent, I arouse myself suHiciently to pull
on my outfit, hurry from the cottage, and stumble
down the hill. Upon my approach to the dock,
myriads of sunfish emerge from beneath it to watch
the antics I perform while getting into the boat.
As I shove off into the cool, misty night, the finned
life beneath me is moved to activity.
The lake itself is still sleeping. Its glassy surface
is marred only by the minute ripples from my boat
and the frantic struggles of some tiny insects en-
deavoring to escape from the tenacious water. The
cool, exhilarating air rushes through my lungs.
giving me renewed life and energy. Dipping fny
oars, I cause the darkness and water alike to be
carved by my prow. I cast my bait with a joyful
sweep of the arm, making the line scream protest-
ingly from my reel off into the night, finally to
settle with a contented swish. The gentle "pip', of
the bait still rings through the night. tempting the
fish to breakfast upon it.
Presently the dull light of dawn, which begins
to filter through the woods and shadows, gives the
water mysterious hues. Ah, now is the time for me!
A glorious dawn has appeared in the East, sunrise
is soon to come. At last a huge orange sun peeks
up, pushing away the still lingering night. So it
did yesterday, the day before yesterday, and the
day before that! Wlitit care I if I do not land a
single fish? Wh.1t more can I wish for than this?
The bait again flies high into the air, the line
streaks hopefully toward the heavens, only to sink
back dismally into the water.
As the sun climbs higher and higher, blazing its
way upwards, the fish return to the cool depths to
play among the water weeds. I myself pull for
home, for I am rayenous by this time. I leave the
beautiful lake until the evening sunset and twi-
light come to call me out again.

All my life I have longed to be a tramp. When
in the spring the soft sighing breezes come stealing
to me, when Mother Earth throws off her cold
garment of snow, and little shoots of green appear
on the trees, then I want to forsake all and follow
the call of nature. I'd like to wander here and there
with never a definite goal in sight: to see new trees
and new birds, discover new streams, collect rocks,
Indian beads, and strange plants. Ifd like to feel
that for three months I could call myself my own.
Such is my ambition. But alas! Wfhat would the
family say? And my dear old uncle? He would be
But for a day I can lose myself in the woods I
love. My two sisters and I in our old clothes have
started many times from our city home in Illinois
back to the scenes of our childhood. We ride to the
end of the street-car line, walk the mile of paved
road, and turn up the old familiar winding road.
The air in the early morning-have you ever no-
ticed it? It has a cool tingling touch that fairly
exhilaratcs us, causing us to skip and dance and
break into joyous song. The birds in the trees seem
to share our happiness, for they chirp loudly in an
effort to outsing us. we leave the road and come to
a patch of trees. Here for an hour we swing from
a fragile grapevine over a precarious hill. From the
grapevine we emerge to find a stream which we
follow for miles. If we want to gain the opposite
side, we form a bridge of stepping stones, the main
purpose of which is to find out how cold the water
is. And then we do an unheard of thing! We go in
swimming! True, it is only April, and the water
is cold, but we have done this innumerable times
before. XVe donlt even pause to wonder what the
family would think. It is an ordeal to go into the
W.1IC1'. XVe usually dare each other to go in first,
and then we make a mad rush to dive in together
The hrst few minutes it is almost unbearably cold,
but we gradually get used to the coolness and pro-
ceed to enjoy ourselves.
XVe feel a hungriness which cannot be hushed,
so leaving the woods we walk down the road again
until we come to a large rambling farmhouse. W'e
offer to buy our dinner, but knowing the ways of
these kind, hospitable people, we feel sure that our
money is safe. If you could taste that delicious hot
dinner, topped off with a huge slab of hot apple
pie, you, too, would cultivate a taste for tramping.
After dinner we again seek the company of the
woods. XVe sit in the sand and dig up innumerable
Indian beads, pretending they are buried treasure.
XVe have sufiiciently rested and are ready for
more excitement. Towering up from the side of the
creek is a tall jagged hill, a clay-like hill devoid of
any living thing. The height of our ambition is
to scale this precarious hill. With a sharp stone we
chop small dents in the hill, then slowly, laboriously,
climb step by step to the top where we cling to a
small, scraggly bush. I shudder to think of it now.
Had we lost our balance, we would have been dashed
on the rocks below to be seriously injured or per-
Having almost exhausted all possibilities of
amusing ourselves for this day, we turn our steps
homeward. XVe are very hungry, our steps lag, but
our spirits soar high as ever. Do you wonder that
the conductor looks askance at our muddy shoes,
our soiled clothing, and our dirty faces? But we are
supremely unconscious and sublimely happy. Have
we not for a day gone where we wanted to go,
done the things we planned to do, and brought
home rare treasures? It will probably mean aches
and pains the next day, but we shall suffer hero-
ically in silence and enthusiastically propose another
tramp when the family has become somewhat rec-
onciled to the effects of this trip.

It was just a small home-made affair with a
square prow as well as a square stern. NVe had had
no plans to guide us in the delicate art of ship
building, and consequently the bottom was not
what it should have been. But it was our pride and
was the l.1st word in boats on our creek.
The crowning event in the lives of us young
pirates was the launching of the Eagle-as we
named our terror of the creek. It was an odd bulk-
ish-looking thing that we tugged from one side of
the main street to the other on our well-oiled wag-
ons. Finally, we shoved it down the bank by the
Main Street bridge to the waiting buccaneers below,
who lowered it with great ceremony into the rush-
ing waters of the creek. Then with tar we remedied
the results of our unskilled carpentry. Wfith all
hands on board we sailed majestically down to the
first ripples. Here all were sternly ordered to take
to the water and push.
Many unlucky ports were raided on that first
eventful trip up the creek, and many were the
killed and wounded which our fancy left hanging
by their hair on the surrounding trees. Meanwhile,
our stately ship was not fairing so well. The nu-
merous ripples and projecting boulders had at last
left their mark on the invincible bottom of our
Eagle, and a man was promptly assigned to bail.
On hearing the whistles of the town factories
blow, we put our boat into the harbor and partook
of our home-made lunch. How good those sand-
wiches, hard-boiled eggs, and overripe bananas
For days our kites and marbles were left un-
touched until on returning to our dock one day,
after having had much rainy weather, we found
our boat gone. The swollen waters had carried it
down the stream.
I have had many boat rides since that old boat
disappeared, but never have I derived so much pleas--
use from them as from those rides on the famous

ETHEL IXIARY OSTROIXI
Embarlting on the S. S. Technical, the June
senior class of 1929 began its four-year voyage of
high school education. At lirst the members spent
much of their time in becoming acquainted with
thc ways of the ship, and in learning from the
officers on board how to site significant landmarks
in the Bay of Learning.
As their ability to discern these marvels increased,
they caught glimpses of glorious islands of knowl-
edge, whose rich treasure lured them ashore to make
explorations. Wfith the boat othcials as their ever-
helpful guides, they amassed great fortunes of last-
ing treasure of which they can never be robbed.
For diversion during the trip, some of the class
members entered athletics, others entertained the
voyagers with their music and drama, while all
used spare time to cultivate friendships.
However, no matter what their specialty, all the
class members were taught practical methods of
navigation-the qualities of courage, perseverance,
and faith necessary to breast stormsg and the high
ideals by which to pilot their ships on the great
Sea of Life.
Now the end of this pleasant and eventful jour-
ney is approaching, the ship is already heading to-
xvard the Port of Graduation.
Upon reaching this port, the class will disembarlt,
some to board college ships for another voyage in
the Bay, others to leave immediately for the great
Sea of Life.
XVhatever their plans, the seniors linow that
through experiences on this voyage they have been
well prepared for the great journey. They are grate-
ful to the crew for the guidance which has made
this trip so successful, and they realize that the
greatest way in which they can show their appre-
ciation is by achieving those goals which the ideals
of the S. S. Technical have inspired,

The world cools.
Thickly, darkness spreads over the land.
Miles in the air
Pieces of grim, grey clouds soundlessly rush
To join in one
Deadly black mass.

An ominous murmur rises-
All is quiet.
It echoes again
And breaks into rolling thunder!
Like L1 slumbering giant
Quietly the breeze stirs
And then dies down-
But not for long.
It comes again,
Tremendously the wind bellows.
Steadily it advances.
XVith a roar the gale crashes to battle!
The rushing wind
XVhips a mighty blow
At the heart of the pitch-black monster.
Fifty miles long in an instant
A white-hot streak-of-lightning

And stabs at the wind!
Screaming! the wind dodges
And strikes back with .1 furious blast!
The black clouds explode with a million
Tremendous bombs burst, booming!
And .1 thousand echoes crash!

"Aw, it's a buttercup, ya sap. Wobble along."
With that, the Saxophone Band ambled on into
the wild flower garden, where they had been pro-

garden party, May eighth.
Being boys with boys' appetites they had been

for the music, neverthe-

that something else could be done with dainty
wafers besides making a pretty showing.
Then came the trip through the garden.

"Let him go. Hope he runs into a bear!"
As the Saxophone Band fluttered and tripped out
of the garden, the baseball team, which had been
practicing close by, suddenly became interested in
botany. fThe gentle breeze probably had informed
the boys that cakes were at the garden gate.j
Although Bert Davis was interested in the nodding

Under the direction of Coach John Mueller the
baseball team showed itself capable of completing
another record-making season.
Last year the Green and Wliite diamond nine
passed through the entire season's schedule without
a defeat, amassing 128 runs as compared to the 16
points gathered by its opponents. Only two of the
1928 contests were close, while four teams failed
to score a single run.
This season, at the time the CANNON went to
press, the squad had won all games played, three of
them being shut-outs. Teeh,s representatives had
gathered 82 points, while its opponents had gained
only nineteen counters.
Tech captured the initial scrap at Broad Ripple
by the substantial score of 28 to 4. In this fray the
Muellermen were never hard pressed to maintain
the upper hand.
Greensburg, the next team on the schedule, was
blanked 13 to 0. Tichenor, opposing hurler, was
punctured for fourteen hits, while Cullivan al-
lowed the visitors only five.
Three errors on the part of Shelbyville enabled
the Muellei-men to emerge victorious in the first
close contest of the season, 4 to 3. Jordan and Culli-
van, twirlers for Tech, allowed their opponents
seven hits, Taylor, on the rubber for the visitors,
permitted nine swats.
Another victory for Tech soon followed at
Southport. Eighteen blows were collected from
Haugh, Xvayman, Thompson, and Benson, twirlers
for the Red and White, Cullivan, Tech pitcher,
held the out-of-towners to ten hits. Loman and
Miller each poled a home run, while four errors by
Southport helped to decide the 17-to-7 score.
The Eastsiders then succeeded in wresting a 1-to-0
victory from the Butler freshman team after a
hard, fast scrap staged on the Riverside diamond.
This battle was the second tilt which Tech won by
a one-run edge. A single, then a stolen base by Mc-
Laughlin, and a timely single by Loman allowed
Tech to make its only run.
Mooresville, the next victim, bowed before the
Green and XVhite, 13 to 3. Cullivan, on the firing
line for Tech, gave but four hits to the visitors
before Jordan relieved him on the mound. Law-
rence's sacrifice hit gave Mooresville its lone run
while Cullivan occupied the box, but Jordan of
Tech was taxed for three hits and two markers
during the remainder of the contest.
Manual followed in the tracks of Butler when it
was overcome, 6 to 0. Six errors attributed to the
Southsiders aided Tech's score. Cullivan held Man-
ual without a blow up to the last inning, when
R. Kleppe squeezed out a lone swat.
Greensburg, Shelbyville, Broad Ripple, Washiiig-
ton, and Manual completed the unplayed schedule.

Winter had finally left Indianapolis, the boys started
in again on their training.
At the opening of this season the Myersmen were
especially weak on field events. It was this deficiency
that cost them defeat by Kokomo early in the sea-
son. The boys on the field team were not to be
beaten easily, and at the Muncie meet a week later
they captured first place in the pole vault, first
place in the high jump, and second place in the
broad jump. D. White of Tech was able to go ten
feet in the pole vault, and M. Hall leaped five feet
eight inches for the "Big Green." Mann placed
second in the broad jump.
In the 100-yard and 220-yard dashes the Arsenal-
ites had three strong men in Crawford, Lippincott,
and Parrish. Holman starred in the mile run. In the
440-yard dash Sears was almost without a peer and
Freeman was also a speedy runner. In the hurdles
Mann and W. Reed starred. In addition to this the
mile relay team of Tech, made up of Freeman,
H. White, Holman, and Russell, was always a
winner. Many new boys also showed good form.
In the North Central Indiana High School Con-
ference, the Tech thinlies nosed out a victory in a
semi-marine affair by winning with 46 S-6 points.
Kokomo, the runner-up, scored 46 1-2 points. Earlier
in the season Tech lost a dual meet with Kokomo
S3 to 43, and later it subdued the Munciemen
S2 to 47. In their first meet of the season the Tech-
men placed second in the indoor meet held at the
Indiana University field house.
Shortridge nosed out a victory in the sectional
meet held at Tech Saturday, May eleventh. The Blue
and XVhite Cinder burners got 26 points, while
Tech, who placed runner-up, took 23 counts.
Froebel, Gary, and excessive rain won the state
high school final track meet held at Tech, Saturday,
May eighteenth. Fuqua, the Brazil flash, copped
fifteen points to place Brazil second. Tech counted
fourteen points to make a close third.

The truth will out, and the truth is that the
Tech girls have enjoyed a most successful year of
sports during which the basketball squad has won
several victories over the State Deaf School girls,
the Ben Davis girls, and the Wgtshingtoia Conti-
nentals. Double wins were scored over the latter
two teams. Two contests were dropped: one to the
Shortridge girls, and one to the Deaf School girls.
Helen Miller, Margaret Edwards, and Marjorie
Green are the only girls lost to the squad by grad-
uation. Louise Eppen and Bernice Brown, three-
year veterans, with Mildred Thixton and Ada
Bloemhof, second-year veterans, and Bernice Ruf-
ner, Bertine Burks, and Marjorie Lawson, yearlings,
will form the nucleus of next year's team. Four
Tech teams will be kept playing throughout next
season, all competing under girls' rules as provided
for by the Athletic Association.
A series of volley ball and baseball games was
played with the W'ashington and Shortridge girls

Eight years ago the Arsenal Guards, a Tech mil-
itary organization, gave way to the Reserve Officers,
Training Corps, an organization which had just
come into existence after the adoption of the Na-
tional Defense Act of june 4, 1920. In the spring
of 1922, the first annual government inspection
was held. The Arsenal Technical Schools unit of
the R .O. T. C. won for Tech the red star of honor
in the Fifth Corps Area. This area covers four
states: Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia.
In 1922, schools in eight other corps areas were
undergoing their Hrst inspections, and honor schools
were being selected in each. Since that first inspec-
tion in ,22, six times have schools from these nine
corps areas been named honor schools. In these units
different schools have won the red star of honor,
but only two schools in the United States have won
that star for seven consecutive years. Tech is one
of the outstanding two. Tech has survived the in-
spections of 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925, 1926, 1927,
and 1928. This unit with a national reputation has
five hundred cadets working as one man under the
leadership of Major I-Ienry F. Schroeder, U. S. A.
Retired, and Sergeant Chester A. Pruett, U. S. A.
To date, the results of the 1929 government in-
spection, held April twenty-sixth, have not been
announced, but Tech students are hoping that for
the eighth consecutive time their R. O. T. C. unit
will be given the red star.
This year the unit is commanded by Cadet Col-
onel Joseph Quigley. The Held officers are: Cadet
Colonel Quigley, Cadet Lieutenant-Colonel Maurice
Horton, Cadet Major Allison Koelling, and Cadet
Major Eston Stearns.

Golf, which has been the paramount individual
sport craving for many many years, has made its
way into nearly every nook and corner of the civ-
ilized world today. It has gradually, in the last few
years, worked itself into high school athletic com-
petition: and Tech, not to be one whit behind, fell
right in line and worked up a golf foursome.
Two years ago the Green and White team placed
fourth in the conference matches. Last year the
place was raised to third, and this year we hope to
see our boys finish in first or second place.
Priming themselves by hard competition for next
fall's conference tournament to be held at Frank-
fort, Indiana, the Techmen entered into a schedule
of seven matches, two each with Manual, Short-
ridge, and Vfashington, and one with Shelbyville.
When this magazine went to press, two 8 FQ-to-3 M
victories had been scored, one over Washington and
the other against Shortridge. Both of these matches
were played at the Coflin golf course
The Park Board has encouraged the high school
golfers in Indianapolis by giving each school two
days each week for free practice sessions on the
course nearest to the school and permitting them
to play matches free also. Tech's home course is
Pleasant Run, Manual's is Sarah Shank, Washing-
ton's is Riverside, and, as mentioned before, Short-
ridge's is Coffin. Pleasant Run's tricky fairways
and water traps sifted out all except the select
varsity material and its two alternates from a start-
ing field of twenty-five or thirty youthful aspirants
a little over a month ago when team tryouts were
held. Lyle Wisenberg, Jimmy Munro, Cecil Bold-
ing, and Ward Engle secured team positions by
showing their wares in classy fashion during the
medal play, while Bobby Munro and Kermit Burn-
nell grabbed off the alternate's places.
Coach Campbell, who is in charge of golf, pre-
dicts a good season ahead and displays great enthu-
siasm for this sport which gives the individual per-
son a chance for athletic competition and also for
fine training. .-1.1

Now as we hover over our beloved Alma Mater,
the searchlight of the airplane turns upon the tennis
courts of old Tech. The faint strains of "I Fa' Down

Good afternoon, dearie, how are you today? You
had an appointment for a shampoo and a marcel
with a round curl, didn't you? Good lands, so many
things have happened since you were here the last
time. You remember Mrs. Stout? Well, she came
in here the other day, right in the middle of my
busy hour, and practically demanded that I give her
a permanent right away. She was giving a formal
ball for her niece that evening and must have it
done "right awayn: you know how she talks, real
fast. I suppose you heard about the ball? I guess
it was quite a ritzy affair, the flower of the town
was there. No, I didn,t go: I guess my invitation
was lost in the mail. I just couldn't account for it
in any other way.
Do you part this on the side or in the middle?
So many of the girls are getting a personality bob,
now, do you think you would like one? No? Well,
I think the way the hair styles are going that every
one will get them because they are so short and
comfortable. They say they are good bait for the
boy friends. Instead of setting your cap, you set
your hair now.
Well, anyway, I told Mrs. Stout that I couldn't
take her right then, and she turned red as a beet!
"The idea," she said, "of your trying to run a first-
elass beauty shop and can't even give me a perma-
nent." Then just like she was the queen of France
or something she said that she could make my trade
fall off. So then I told her that I guessed the trade
would fall off when she left, all right. That got her
because she is awful fat. She swished out of the
shop and I hoped she was gone for good when about
a half hour later the telephone bell rang and it was
her. I acted very cool, and guess what she said.
She said, "Gan you take me at three o'clock?', You
could have knocked me flat right then because I was
just floored, but I answered real sweet, "Oh, yes,
Mrs. Stout, that will be just lovely." She had to
Wfhat did you say? Oh, I am burning you? Well,
I am sorry. These curls look just too darling on you.
You look like Clara Bow. My husband says that I
look just like Greta Garbo, silly boy. But honestly,
I have a secret love for john Gilbert. Oh, how I
adore that man! I could spend hours gazing at his
profile if I had time.
She did? W'ell, didn't I tell you that would be
the way of that romance? On the rocks already,
isn't that too bad? What could she expect when
she married her mother's milkman? Foolish child!
Now, when I married, I married a coal heaver. Yes,
he has a fine job with the same people he always
worked for. You know, I think a coal heaver is so
respectable, don't you?
XVell, honey, I am just about through. Do you
want bangs? You have that sweet appeal that goes
just too cute with bangs. You'll take them? You
know the amount of men to whom I give marcels
and permanents is astounding. Why, last week I
gave four realistic permanents and almost as many
marcels to men as I did to the girls. Men are so
full of vanity. They have to copy everything the
women do. Say, that is a pretty suspender skirt and
cute sweater you have on. I think those little
blouses with the high collars and bow ties look so
cute on the girls. All through now, girlie. Well,
bye byeg come back next week and we will talk
it over. FRIID DARNELL.

I watched that young man with a feeling of
amusement and sympathy in my soul, for he was
struggling with an algebra problem during his
lunch period. Now, in my estimation, a lunch
period is no time to get algebra-I have a strong
suspicion that the boy had let pleasure interfere
with business. His chair was tipped at a precarious
angle, and his fountain pen was suspended danger-
ously near a dish of strawberry ice cream. A sheet
of theme paper reposing before him bore witness to
the fact that he had experienced several "inspira-
tions," but apparently none had worked, I-Ie stared
hopefully around the lunch room and, spying a
sprightly young man who evidently had a reputa-
tion for brilliancy, hailed him loudly.
"I-Iey, Bill, c'm'ere.,'
"See if you can get this one."
Bill took the battered algebra book and, chewing
his pencil viciously, studied the problem with an
air of serious concentration.
"Well," he said shortly, "look here."
The young man looked but was not convinced.
Meanwhile Bill saw something on the opposite
side of the room which demanded his immediate
"Sorry, but I've got an important engagement,"
Before the boy could protest, his companion
Five minutes passed-the ice cream was dissolved
into pink soup.
The young manls face was unartistically dec-

very discouraged. I-Ie made two more futile at-
tempts toward solving the obnoxious problem.
Then, heaving a sigh-no, rather a snort-of dis-
gust, he grabbed his algebra book and paper, sprint-
ed to the candy counter, and bought a bag of pea-
nuts which he disposed of with gusto. Each salty
nut was a drop of cooling balm to his tortured soul.

XVon't someone publish a book for the strug-
gling young gentleman who wishes to know when
a lady should precede a gentleman? The subject is
Some stand-pat notionists declare th.1t the gen-
tleman should always allow the lady to precede him.
Maybe they are right.
Let us take the well-groomed gentleman from
the page of some advertisement and suggest to him
that he take the lady of the opposite page to the
theatre. Ready? Letfs go.
The gentleman calls on the lady to take her to
the the.1tre. Of course, the gentleman will open
the door of the taxi and allow the lady to enter.
But when they reach their destination, does he de-
part from the car first? Of course not. "Ladies
The gentleman purchases the necessary tickets
and moves toward the door. As the doorman is ab-
sent, the gentleman hesitates. Since the door is
made to swing inward, should he open the door and
follow it through? No, indeed! "Ladies first." But
if he pushes the door open and then steps back, the
door might close on milady. Try another! If, push-
ing the door open, he attempts to hold it thus from
the outside, by placing his arm against it, he will
surely lose his dignity. The lady grows impatient
and moves toward the doorg so the gentleman,
opening the door, follows it through. A breach of
etiquette, indeed! "Ladies first."
When, later in the evening, the couple reaches the
lady,s home, the gentleman opens the door to allow
the lady to pass into the room. The lady, somewhat
frightened by the dark, hesitates. Should the gen-
tleman precede the lady into the hall to make sure
that there are no lurking dangers? Of course not.
"Ladies first." But his sense of chivalry commands
that he enter Hrst-another breach.
They hear a noise in the basement. Should the
gentleman descend into the basement to determine
the source of the noise? I think not. "Ladies first."
After deciding that it is only the cat, the gentle-
man makes his departure to buy some soda, head-
ache powders, and aspirins at the nearest drugstore.
I think that the success of the evening depends
somewhat on the gentleman's reasoning powers.
XVell, we know it's a funny world, and it's "Ladies
first," but when?
In Mr. NVinger's first hour English class one boy
did not understand the guillotine.
"What is it," he asked, "a disease those people

DEAR CANNON BAwLs:
Here are some helpful, although old, old stories
on t'Why haven't you your lesson, today?"
"Oh, yes, my grandmother died . . . why, I had
an appointment with the dentist . . . don't you
know, they took me home ill from school yester-
day . . . I simply can't imagine where it disappeared

But what I've found really effective is to tell the
teacher truthfully that "I just went to the show
last night instead of studying." It usually takes the
teacher so long to revive from the shock of honesty
that the bell rings before any more can be said.
Three more days until vacation,
Then we leave this old plantation,
No more 'taters, no more fun,
No more eating on the run.
A thread of light piercing the black
Reveals, perhaps, a tear-a laugh!
Something sad-something glad,
Some precious moment we have had,
Something that had been well done.
Some well-earned honor we had won.
Some dark period of our life,
A time of sorrow, trouble, strife.
Sometimes close-then far away
More is added every day.
Memory-just a fading call,
A flash of light-that is all.

Although I consider myself a man of sorts-all
sorts--yet I do like to eat. The brown crispiness of
fried chicken-perfect! Or perhaps 21 lean chop, or
hot rolls and coffee would go well. We all have our
joy and habits, and although eating is a joy to me,
it is vastly more than a habit. I hold eating as an
art in which almost everyone is slightly interested.
My first thought when I awaken in the morning
is, "XVhen and what for breakfast?"g then try as
I may, I am unable to rid my mind of this question
until I am cooly told by the honorable mater to
wait and be surprised.
Nothing distresses me more than to have to wait
for a meal. I become impatient, enraged, disgusted,
nonchalant by turns, until I am sure that I shall
go mad from restraint and anticipation. I stalk
around the house, wearing either a crestfallen look
or a dogged air of determination.
Nothing makes me more hungry than a sea pic-
ture at a theatre. Perhaps it is the cool, refreshing
air that blows over the sea, or the lapping, bluish,
clear fresh-water that is so invigorating and that
so arouses my appetite. Or perhaps a small sail far in
the distance with such an emptiness between here
and there causes me to associate the void with my
I am endowed with an unc.mny sense of "smell
and communication." My nose smells some appetiz-
ing aroma, immediately it communicates the fact
to my stomachg then I must eat. To stroll by a
cafe or restaurant is in itself a torture quite horri-
ble, but when pleasant odors float therefrom-I
I am not a glutton. I do not gloat over meals,
neither do I endeavor to overeat. I firmly believe
that there is nothing more sickening than a gour-
mand. I am merely a person who loves to eat and
enjoys eating as eating really is!

and his English friend saw a sign which read:

deeply, After riding a few miles the Englishman
started to laugh and exclaimed, "XVhat if the

A high light of the year,
All the school activities
That make the school so dear.
And then the senior play-

All sorts of good advertisements,
Telegrams, monocles, too.
Baseball, track, and tennis,
Dashes, strokes, home-runs.
XVho can ever deny,
That we have had some fun?
Yes, we've had our troubles,
Studies, grades, and the like,
But never would we regret
These high school days of life.
