Before him lie other roads. He must choose his path. The way is long and clarlc, But he has with him The torch the freshman saw, Gleaming still, strong ancl bright A Torch Lit from the flame of Knowledge Kinclled with the true spirit ol Tech Lighting his path to higher achievement THE ARSENAL CANNON HISTORY OF A FAMOUS PEOPLE Q It was in the year 1927A. D.l With savage yells a tribe of tiny people from the wilds of Primary Education migrated to the more desirable Kingdom of Arsenal fcommonly known as Tech Landl. This realm was occupied by the famous citizens of Secondary Education, governed by King Milo H. Stuart. They had been a thriving and happy people for seventeen years under this beloved leader. The ruler had numerous attendants fknown as teachers, whose duties were to teach the newcomers the best methods to employ in becoming naturalized citizens in this land of higher education. Although some members found it difficult to get used to their new environment, within a short time all were happy and contented in the union. ln order to relieve the monotony of their tireless pursuit of education, the new members entered those activities in the kingdom which interested them. Some sang together in chorus, others grouped themselves in the "Clubs" of the realm, and the more fortunate ones were admitted to the squads for playing games. The two most popular teams in the Land of Tech are, of course, the basketball and football teams. That particular year the football squad lost to the enemy Kingdom of Shortridge, but the basketball squad an- nexed all honors of the adjoining kingdoms by defeating both the enemy realms of Shortridge and Manual. As the year was drawing to a close, the tiny members of the kingdom were informed that they were eligible now to drink from the mystic fountain of knowledge which had been flowing in this land for many years. Great was their joy on learning that the wonder- working waters would make them grow, as each of the tiny members took a long draught from the generous fountain, he was amazed to find himself increasing to larger proportions. Q After the mysterious drink the new members were dubbed Sophomores by the older citizens of the realm. However, these sophomores were not long permitted to rejoice in their new accomplishments, for it was to be a year of great toil. This particular period marked the construction of a new meeting place for the kingdom, this structure to be known as an auditorium. ln an amazingly short time the colossal mansion was finished, all complete except in one detail, it lacked an organ. ln order to purchase the instrument, each member of the entire kingdom assumed the responsibility of working at unique tasks, thus contributing his share to the purchasing of the organ. These workers showed such excellent spirit and perseverance that the pur- chase was soon complete and the auditorium dedicated with impressive ceremonies. Now when the entire kingdom assembles, the meetings are favored by talks from famous educators, statesmen, musicians, and travelers from many lands. Also numerous plays and programs commemorating famous men and events are held during these meetings. This year was indeed to be a milestone for the realm. Although the football team was defeated by the northern rival, Shortridge, the basketball team battled its way valiantly 33 V THE ARSENAL CANNCN to the finals of the State Tournament to tall at last before the team from the Kingdom of Frankfort. ln addition, the musical groups and the "Clubs" achieved singular honors. Now that the second year was concluding, the members were again permitted to indulge in the waters of the mystic fountain. The result from the second drink was even more awe-inspiring than that from the first. Each newcomer found himself as large as any one in the entire Kingdom, and, too, the group was heralded as Juniors this year. By this time the majority of the youthful members were beginning to realize rewards from their industrious efforts. Some were so fortunate as to obtain positions on the staff of the Kingdom publication, known as the Arsenal Cannon, while a few were fortunate enough to have their articles published in outstanding literary magazines. This year the basketball and football teams performed creditably, and the relay team from Tech went to Chicago where the boys not only won their race, but set a new world's record for that event. Another year was now consummated, and as before the growing citizens were led to the magic fount and again eagerly partook of the water of knowledge. THE 0 The effects of the third drink strengthened the new Seniors, enabling them to appreciate more fully their immediate surroundings and added responsibilities. The Seniors in completing their fourth and final year in the Kingdom of Arsenal were the established leaders of the entire kingdom. lmmediately they were organized into six sponsor rooms under the supervision of the most able sponsors. Under a new plan of organization each sponsor room selected five of its members as officers and the officers of the combined six sponsor rooms constituted a Senior Council which dictated the policies and governed the activities of the class. The members of the Senior Council were as follows: PRESIDENTS: Ralph Simpson, Lionel Wiggam, Paul Morgan, Theodore Freeman, William Justice, Robert Brown. VICE-PRESIDENTS: Helen Siefert, Helen Wurster, Bernice Markus, Louise Crouch, Virginia Hitch- cock, Marthabelle Bond. SECRETARIES: Wilma Rugenstein, Ruth Van Sickle, Portia Pittenger,Josephine Geis, Helen Klasing, June Fern Blythe. TREPSSURERS: LaMar Smith, Owen Vicars, Norman Newburg, Harry Garman, Rudard Jones, Edgar aum. SERGEANTS-AT-ARMS: William Strang, Charles Voorhis, Roberts Overtree, Douglas Ewing, Marshall Knox, Marshall Alexander. This year the class was divided into the "A" and "T" divisions as usual, but this time it was divided alphabetically instead of being distinguished as the January and June graduating classes. The new organization was progressing smoothly when it was learned that the esteemed king, Milo H. Stuart, was to leave his first kingdom, to become the general supervisor of the several realms in this domain. The news of this change was a crushing blow to the entire group, and it was softened only when it was announced that Prince DeWitt S. Morgan was to become king. At the first senior auditorium the Senior Council was introduced and loudly ap- plauded. ln addition, a freshman auditorium was held, sponsored by the senior group 34 V THE ARSENAL CANNON for the purpose of welcoming a new group of tiny people, called Freshmen, who were entering the land of Tech. The Senior Council met regularly to discuss senior business and to select the honorary officers of the class. They chose Bettie Belk as poet, Helen Thomas as song-writer, and appointed Karl Stipher, historian. ln due time the committees were appointed to accomplish the necessary tasks. The picture committee selected Voorhis as the class photographer, while the color group chose turquoise, black, and silver as the senior colors. The motto committee selected the phrase, "Let us learn not for school, but for life," and the gift committee presented the king with a beautiful mahogany desk and chair to be used in his office. As in previous years many were achieving numerous and singular honors. The dramatic season of the kingdom was opened in the fall by the "T" division when it presented "The Gipsy Trail." Later, in the spring the "A" division presented "The Tailor-Made Man." Both plays proved to be "hits," for the casts were excellently chosen and per- formed admirably. On April eighth the senior auditorium was held for the benefit of the entire realm. The program, entirely in the hands of the senior group, was carried out in fine style, quite characteristic of a senior undertaking. With light hearts the Seniors assembled in their beautiful auditorium to hold the annual class party. Long will the Seniors remember the delightful time they had, and it was all due to the tireless efforts of the Senior Class Day Committee. Shortly after the party, Honor Day was held, and many of the classmen received distinguished honors. Amid a sacred atmosphere there was held on June seventh the Vesper Service which was indeed an inspiring and impressive ceremony. According to the new custom there were two separate commencements. The "A" division was graduated on Tuesday, .lune ninth, and the "T" division was graduated on Thursday, June eleventh. Now it was Goodbye to dear old Tech Land! Goodbye to the friendly kingdom and the beloved king! Goodbye to those patient teachers who had labored so diligently in order that the citizens might acquire a better education! However, the wanderers were again to be permitted a final drink from the fountain of knowledge, before they should wander into the Kingdom of Life. The drink from the fount this time was not to make them grow physically, but to enlarge their understanding and mentality. The effects of the drink on each and every individual may never be known, but it is hoped that each will use to the best advantage the knowledge he has acquired. Thus he will not only attain success in his own endeavors, but will reflect to the credit of the entire Kingdom.

REACHING OUR GOAL NLY by creating beautiful ideals can beau- tiful achievements be accomplished, for imagination is but little removed from reality. If we cultivate glorious standards, we shall find glory in realizing the models we set for ourselves. As seniors we have materialized many of the ideals we created as freshmen. As men and women we must attempt to fulfill the ideals we are now forming in our minds. Lionel Wiggam Louise Crouch We have an entire world in which to labor. With the inspiration we have derived from our accomplishments in high school, we should find the world overflowing with ideals waiting for us to realize.

February twentieth was the assembIy to celebrate George Washington's birthday. Singing was furnished by the GirIs' Glee CIub, and the Stagecraft cIass took part in the tableaux. At a pep session, March fourth, just before the Sectionals, Dale Young, a graduate of Tech, played a group of popuIar seIections on the organ and also accompanied the pep songs which the student body sang. Edwin Tomlinson, a worId traveIer, gave a very interesting taIIc, March eIeventh, on his recent trip through South America. Another former Tech student, George Newton, of the Newton Quartette, enter- tained March twenty-fourth. The seniors of the 1931 graduating cIass entertained the entire student body, ApriI fifteenth, by presenting a sIcit, written by LioneI Wiggam and adapted by Ralph Ross, to convey to the undercIassmen their ideal school and the ideaI pupil of that school. Rudard Jones, Henry Branstetter, and Savo Stoshitch gave taIIcs. William Justice presided. Dr. William Sutton, president of the National Educational Association, addressed the student body on ApriI twenty-first. The advertising cIasses, assisted by the Stagecraft cIass, the Concert Club, and the Boys' GIee CIub, gave a cIever program to advertise the senior pIay, April twenty-eighth. Then came the Girls' GIee CIub program, May twenty-third, Honor Day, June eighth, and several other assembIies.

NET SNIPER SYNOPSIS OW that the 1930-31 edition of the Great Hoosier lnstitution is off the press and out of print, the chief wonder of the students ol Tech is how Coach Tim Campbell built so successful a machine as he did with no lettermen as a foundation. Playing a total of twenty games against the stilfest opposition in the state, this squad, composed oi Clarence Jones, Kermit Bunnell, Leroy Edwards, Howard White, Earl Overman, Raymond Gladden, Wayne Huston, Halbert Gaulcer, Earl Townsend, and Howard Pursell, hit a percentage ol .500, winning ten and losing ten games. The Techmen got away to a last start by thumping the Rochester Zebras, 34 to 19, on their own floor, but followed this triumph by a slump of four defeats. These were administered by Martinsville, 28 to 25, Greenfield, 23 to 18, the championship Muncie squad, 30 to 17, and the Lebanon Tigers, 22 to 16. Recovering long enough to nose out Fuzzy Vandivier's Eranlclin proteges by a count ol 20 to 18, the Campbellmen again were set baclc by Rushville, 25 to 20, and by Kolcomo, 18 to 15, Followed by a 16-to-12 margin on Newcastle's strong aggregation. The team next journeyed to Eranlclort, where Coach Case's boys emerged with the crown of victory to the tune of 34 to 19. 52 V THE ARSENAL CANNON Then came the City Tournament. ln its first game, the Campbellmen nosed out Coach Peterman's Blue Devils, 17 to 16, then defeated Broad Ripple's scrappy five, 33 to 10. The city crown again was wrapped in a banner of Green and White. The Connersville boys doubled the score on the locals, 28 to 14, at the down-state gym, but the Green and White machine retaliated by doubling the count on the Logan- berries of Coach Wells, 26 to 13. Following this came two setbacks, the First at the hands of Jefferson of Lafayette, 30 to 22, and the second at the camp of the Anderson indians, 22 to 11. Next came a victory over Vincennes, 22 to 15, when the Alices invaded the Capital City, followed by a 25-to-15 setback, for which Shelbyville's powerful netters were responsible. The regular season closed in fine style when the Green and White net snipers defeated Morton of Richmond by a score of 23 to 17, the same tally by which Morton beat the locals last year, and had a victory over the Columbus five, 19 to 14. After drubbing the plucky little Oaklandon five, 44 to 13, and nearly doubling the count on Washington, 31 to 17, Tech was upset in the semi-final round of the local Sectional by an inspired Southport team, 21 to 16. Although thus defeated in the Sectional the Tech team went down fighting in a clean way, a characteristic of Campbell-coached squads. RESERVES' RECORD WINNING fourteen while dropping only three games, the second team of basketeers, composed of Wayne Huston, Walter Chapman, Ralph Lytle, Donas Dischinger, Billy Schultze, Halbert Gauker, Ralph Willis, and Hubert Kinney, completed one of the most successful schedules in years during the past season. Martinsville nosed out the squad in its first encounter by a score of 12 to 9, but it swamped Greenfield, 33 to 7, in the next game. It sank Muncie, 15 to 10, had the edge on Lebanon, 12 to 11, thumped Franklin, 18 to 7, and followed this triumph by the second loss of the season, this time to Rushville, 11 to 9. It rallied, however, and, over- coming a six-point lead at the half, flashed to a 10-to-7 decision over Kokomo, defeated Broad Ripple, 18 to 14, thumped New Castle, 15 to 5, and continued this winning streak by shading Frankfort, 12 to 11. Connersville took the Techmen into camp next to the tune of 21 to 15, but Tech captured a decision over the Anderson indians in one of the hardest fought battles of the season by staging a sensational last-half rally to win, 27 to 26. Warren Central was the next victim, 28 to 5, before the city tourney, which the Green and White took by gaining an edge on the Shortridge Blue Devils, 9 to 7, then winning the second team crown of the city by drubbing Washington, 13 to 8. ln the last two games of the season, the Tech quintet edged out Shelbyville, 16 to 15, and then completed the schedule in fine style by winning another close contest, this time from Columbus, 15 to 13. sa V THE BASEBALL SEASON First row, left to right: Mr. Twineham, Ray Henderson, Frank Noffke, Herman Bottema, Carl Sutphin, Robert Schmitt, David Jordan, Clarence Gill, Dean Williams, Coach Mueller.

BASEBALL REVIEW ITH THREE veterans from last year's squad, Coach John A. Mueller has built up a baseball team that has dropped only two games out of six so far this season. A resume of the 1931 season up to the magazine deadline follows: A 17-to-O victory over Warren Central, followed by a 16-to-5 count at the expense of Southport on April fourteenth and seventeenth, respectively, started Tech's horsehide season off in style. Shelbyville invaded Tech on April twenty-fourth, a last-inning rally giving Tech a 5-to-4 decision. Errors on the Green's part were largely responsible for an 8-to-6 setbaclc at the hands of the visiting Knightstown team on April twenty-eighth. Tech revenged itself when Richmond played on the local's diamond and was drubbed, 13 to 3, on May first. Noblesville was blanlceted by a score of 19 to 3, May fifth. Tech's second defeat of the season came from Manual on May eighth when the Green invasion was repulsed, 8 to 3. Tech downed Southport, 10 to 7, May twelfth. Unfortunately, the magazine went to press before the following games were played: May 15-at Shelbyville, May 19--at Richmond, May 22-at Huntington, May 26- Washington here, May 29-Manual here. 54 V THE TRACK SEASON .1111 First row, left to right: Fred Lantz, George M.

Tech lead in the Sectionals, May sixteenth, with 48 points. 55 V THE ARSENAL CANNON INTRODUCING GOLF TECH'S 1931 golf season promised to be an excellent one, when the magazine went to press, since the squad was composed of veterans, who had played with the Green and White in 1930. Billy Charles, Walter Chapman, Tony Petric, and Bob Munro were the boys who comprised the Tech medalist team. Their first match was played at the Ulen Country Club at Lebanon on April twenty- fifth when they trounced Lebanon by the score of 9 1-2 to 2 1-2. The points for Tech were collected as follows: Walter Chapman 3, Tony Petric 3, Billy Charles 2, Bob Munro 1 1-2. Chapman of Tech was low score of the match with an 81. These same boys comprised the foursome that copped the North Central Conference Match held at Riverside last fall with a total score of 667, brealcing the previous record of 695, also held by Tech. WITH THE RACQUET WIELDERS THE GREEN and White tennis squad this year was composed of these boys: Robert Pruyn, William Justice, Maurice Wolfred, Robert Morgan, Chester McDermott, Jaclc Hamalcer, and Freeman Kinzie. ln their first match of the season Anderson scored out Tech by a 4-to-3 count. The following weelc Warren Central visited the Eastside courts only to go home on the short end of the score in this match, 4 to 2. The outcome of this match was decided only after Pruyn and .lustice beat Carroll and Piclcerel CQ 7-5, 6-8, 6-2, in the doubles.

NIS! .auf ESTELLE INNER had just been completed at Fairfax, a fashionable girls' school in New Yorlc, when Mandy, the maid of all things, appeared in the doorway that led into a hall from the long dining room and announced in her quaint dialect that a visitor was awaiting the presence of Marlene Chesline in the reception room. Marlene, or Marly as she was usually called, was one of the most popular girls at the school, and as she was also one of the wealthiest, she was allowed certain privileges that were denied most of the other members. She was permitted to see visitors any time they called. Today she wasn't expecting anyone-that is, not exactly. She wondered. She half- prayed and half-dreaded that it might be the person of whom she was thinlcing. "Who is it?" she inquired of Mandy. "Ah don' lcnow. l'se never seed her before." "What does she loolc like? ls she pretty, attractive, old, young? Oh, Mandy, you can be so stupid!" "Ah lcnows just one thing. She shore is hansome." "That is certainly a definite description," admitted Marly, laughing rather shalcily. "l hope that l will be able to recognize the mysterious visitor." If the person awaiting her was whom she believed it to be, she would probably have reason to shalce. How she dreaded to combat with that terrible temper, but maybe it was someone else. Mandy had said she didn't lcnow her. "Oh, well, here goes," she said to herself. As she entered the room, her worst fears were realized. It was her mother! Her mother gazed at her a moment anxiously, then remarlced, "Well, for a person almost ready to die of worry, you loolc very healthy to me. Child," she continued, "what in the world was your idea?" Marly flushed. Everything did seem silly now. She doubted if she could ever malce herself understood. Cl I li Won t you come up to my room so we can talk? "Certainly," replied her mother acidly. 60 V THE ARSENAL CANNON After they had reached the room, Mrs. Chesline uttered a tart "Well," which Marly recognized as her cue to speak. "Oh," she began rather wildly, "l was crazy to think that you could ever understandi l just had to get you over here in my world. You have always been so far away. l was lonesome. All of the other friends l have here go home to their mothers for vacations. What do l do? l stay here, and pretend l don't care. But l do-l do. l'm tired of it all. l want a mother to tell me not to do things. l haven't had a whole week with you since Father died, but that doesn't matter. You would be just the same. You're a wanderer, and you're selfish. Oh, don't look so shocked, you know that it's true. You've never been responsible for me. l wish you could understand," she sobbed. "Do you mean to say that you actually cabled me to come from one of the best seasons in Europe, to come over here to witness one of your dramatic, emotional exhibitions?" asked her mother, incredulously. "Oh, Mother," sobbed Marly, "you don't even care what happens to me." "Please stop your crying and don't call me 'Mother'. l have written and implored you to refrain from doing so. l hate it, 'Mother' makes me feel centuries old, call me 'Estellef " "Yes," snapped Marly, angrily, "and l've told you a thousand times that I won't- do you hear me-l won't ever stop calling you 'Mother' until l've given up every hope that you'll settle down and really be my mother, and that still goes." "How did you get that ridiculous cable through?" questioned Mrs. Chesline, who thought it wise to change the subject. "l bribed Mandy to take it. Don't tell Mrs. Fairfax, she wouldn't like it." "l won't," answered her mother, "but please don't ever do it again." "How long are you going to stay?" inquired Marly. "l am leaving day after tomorrow." Marly's sorrow was drowned by a very pleasant thought. "Oh, Mother, would you go to the theatre tonight with me? We were just discussing it at dinner. Lots of the girls are going with their mothers. lt's a lovely play. l know you would like it. And l want all the girls to see what a pretty mother l have. Will you go?" Mrs. Chesline assented. The night was lovely. The theatre was crowded. Marly had never been so happy. She exulted in the envious glances that were passed to her. She thrilled at her mother's love- liness. Even her mother forgot her selfish whims and considered her daughter's requests. While standing on the deck the next day, Mrs. Chesline asked, "Marly, do you know of a house in New York in which you would like to live?" Marly thought her heart would burst. "Do you really mean it, Mother?" "l'll cable you if l decide to return." She kissed Marly goodbye. Marly stood on the deck until the ship became a mere speck on the great ocean. Maybe in a week or two she would have a home and a mother all her own. She hugged the delicious thought to herself. Dinner had just been completed when Mandy appeared with a cable for Marlene. 61 V THE ARSENAL CANNON Marlene went into the hall to read it. She wanted to be alone. She felt that she couldn't share this great happiness that would soon be hers. "You can wait for an answer," she addressed Mandy with a voice trembling with happiness. As she read the message, a bewildered expression flitted across her face. Then tears stung her eyes, and with a voice filled with emotions of hate, anger, and hurt pride, she gave Mandy the answer. "Dear Estelle!-do you hear me, Mandy-l said Estelle," she went on hysterically, "India is a lovely country" -then in a choking voice as she mounted the stairs, she added, "l wish you Bon Voyage .... " MAXINE SAINE A SANCTUARY PAUSED and loolced again at the small, shabby white church, nestled closely by tall trees, sentinels standing there to protect it. It stirred me strangely, more deeply than any of the many beautiful ones l had seen. lts old-fashioned steeple and belfry with an old, old bell in it, pointed slcyward so proudly, caught at my heart. The last rays of the sun glinted softly on its stained glass window-it had only one- bringing out its lovely pattern, softening the deep colors. How much more effective this one window was than the many there are in larger churches. Somehow it made me feel surer that the story of Jesus is true, that he would love the humble places of worship more, that wealth shouldn't matter to a church. It called to my mind the picture of Him as a baby, the picture that l have always had, a tiny, tiny baby swathed in soft coverings, lying in a manger. l wanted to invade this quiet sanctuary and pray alone inside its doors, but it was Thursday and the doors were closed. l turned slowly away-strange that l felt l should like to cry, but something was gripping my heart, and l felt closer to everything. PAULINE BLACKBURN SUNSET A splash of crimson on a western slcy, The fading light of day sinlcing softly away- And a last sunbeam as the colors die. A gleam of purple duslc, of silver grey, A shaft of night, falling, a tiny star, calling- As the last light fades from the day. BETTIE BELK 62 V THE ARSENAL CANNON LITTLE SISTER AND I " E did because I saw him!" How useless to try to deny anything with a sister like that sitting across the tabIe from youI About two years ago I was Ieaning against the back of the garage peacefully smoking a cigar that I had secretly taken from my Iather's humidor. SuddenIy I was disturbed by quick IittIe footsteps on the waIk. I dodged around the corner, but I was too Iate. Those bright searching eyes of hers had spied me as she came through the gate. How well I recaII that night at supper. QShe aIways wouId wait untiI supper to teII anything., I happened to glance up in time to catch her Iooking at me. I knew that look! "Mother, George was smoking today." She said it almost ioyousIy. My father Iooked at me with questioning eyes while my mother smiled sIightIy, and my oIder brother and sister tittered. The temperature of the room seemed to rise suddenly as I began to perspire beneath my coIIar. NaturaIIy I denied the accusation. She smiIed gIeeIuIIy as she toId her story. Not a thing was IeIt out. When the narrative was almost completed, I interrupted her to teII that it was she who had eaten the piece of cake on the previous day. She answered with, "George has a girl, too!" The Iast remark was unbearabIe. HastiIy I pushed back my chair from the tabIe and Ieft the room. In the course of that same evening I was forced to smoke another cigar, much stronger than the First. Long before bedtime I went to my room, sick at heart and very sick at my stomach, utterly ridiculed by a six-year-oId sister. Why couIdn't Jean have been a IittIe brother? I think brothers have a more complete understanding between themseIves. At Ieast, I could reason with a brother. A chiId may be cured of kicking or pinching, but tattIing is a vice that requires some deIicate thought. I have spent hours pondering over my dilemma, but so Far I am as much in the dark as when I began. I have tried to taIk Jean out of teIIing on me, but I have Iound that it can't be done. A few times I have resorted to bribery with disastrous results. The addition to her story, "He gave me a nickel so that I wouIdn't teII you," has made matters decidedIy worse. Trying to detract her mind from the subject in hand is not to be considered. Although she is IorgetIuI, she can not be drawn Irom the prospect of "getting something on me." When I threaten her, I am only providing her with ammunition to be used against me, for she invariably repeats the threats to my mother. All bribes, however tempting, are treated with the utmost contempt. And a bribe, coupled with a threat, makes matters much worse. Now I am at my wits' end. So Iar as I can see there is nothing eIse to do except to wait. She may outgrow this habit. However, that will not reIieve my present diIficuIties. It's no use. There is no way to cure a little sister of telling. GEORGE GRISWOLD 63 V THE ARSENAL CANNON ONE POINT TO GO HE ninth period was coming on. There were three "A's" on his report card. A "B" in American History would put him on the honor roll for the first time. His confidence was high. His teacher Iast semester had told him that if he had made boolc reports, he would have received an HA." But this teacher was different, and that Iast test grade had not been so good. By the time he got to class he was nearly frantic. Oh, why couIdn't that teacher hurry up with those cardsl At Iast they came down the row. He was almost afraid to Ioolc at his. He closed his eyes, counted three, and Ioolced. Oh, heartbrealcs and heart throbsl There, reposing on the space opposite American History, was not a plus, not an "A," not even a "B," just a little, plain, good-for-nothing NC." It was no mistalce. The answer was simple. He had been absent for a few days and in that time he had missed some points which had brought down his test grade. No. It was nothing uncommon. Just another case of shattered hopes for achievement, examples of which are to be seen by even casual observance every day in every walk of life. SIMON REISLER THE RIVER A GAME Gurgling o'er a fountain, Dashing down a hill, Up and o'er a mountain, Foaming through the mill. Passing by the birds and bees Passing all the flowers, Leaving in its trail the trees And the fleeting hours. Ever, ever is it going, This, the earth's fair daughter, Ceaseless is the constant flowing OI the clear, cooI water. BERNICE LEACH I used to pIay at solitaire In solitude. I Iilced my little game Thinking it good. One day I heard another player Across the table, And though I tried to concentrate I was not able. Now when the other pIayer's gone My trouble starts. I find I have forgotten solitaire Since I've learned hearts. FRANCIS NIPP Poetry is the imaginative and rhythmic expression in words of the thoughts and dreams, experiences and aspirations of man. 64 -HARRIET MONROE THE ARSENAL CANNON LAWFUL LARCENY S SHE hurried down the darlcened street, Jane found herself regretting that, having finished her shopping, she had allowed herself to be persuaded into talcing supper downtown with Madge. They had eaten at a queer little ltalian place some distance uptown. Afterwards, having parted from Madge in front of the cafe, .lane had hastened toward the nearest bus stop, several bloclcs away, in a slight drizzle of rain, which soon increased to a steady downpour. Her sillc dress and fur neclcpiece were poor protection from the inclement weather and she paused in the doorway of an office building, intending to wait until the rain subsided. However, a vision of Fred at home, trying to put Buddy and Jean to bed and, manlilce, tumbling them in with their dirty feet on the clean sheets, sent her scurrying. Face lowered for protection from the wind and rain, bundles pressed closely to her, and intent only on reaching the bus stop, she failed to see the bullcy figure which stepped from the protecting shadows of an office building. She was distinctly aware, however, of the steel grip in which her arm was caught, of something hard and cold pressed against her side, and of a harsh voice which gruffly commanded her to hand over her purse. Her first emotion was not so much of terror as of surprise. Such a thing as being robbed had no part in her commonplace existence. She lcnew from the papers that people were robbed on the streets, but such things didn't actually happen to oneself. "But-but," she gasped, and then paused, not lcnowing what to say. There really weren't many things one could say to a thief. "Come on, Sister, let's have it." His grip tightened on her arm until she winced in pain, and he pressed the gun in her side. Momentary terror swept over her and she made an involuntary movement towards handing him her purse. Through the haze of fear, she suddenly had a mental picture of Fred, struggling man- fully with the children, and habit-the habit she had formulated of always doing what was best for Fred and the children--came to her rescue. She suddenly realized that giving this man her purse would necessitate wallcing home. "But-please, l must have bus fare." The grip on her arm loosened a bit as if something in her appeal had caused indecision on the part of the thief, then it tightened again, and Jane was forced to release the purse. The man half turned away, then suddenly faced her, made a quiclc dive into his own poclcet, handed her a quarter, and vanished into the rain and darlcness. The wind whipped her coat around her slim legs, and the rain beat on her face. A fog horn from the river hooted dismally into the darlcness lilce a lost soul. Then heavy silence surrounded her. Jane's first thought was for the police. But wait-a sudden thought assailed her-. She quiclcly figured up her loss. She had started out that morning with the fifteen dollars Fred had given her. She had spent-she figured it again to be sure-she had spent fourteen dollars and eighty-five centsl HELEN THOMAS 65 V THE ARSENAL CANNON THUMTBNAIL SKETCHES Q Swish-sh, swish-sh, swish-sh, swish-shl Wind rustles long silver leaves of a weeping willow. The slender black trunlc bows into a crescent, silhouetted against the full moon. Swish-sh, swish-sh! The tree sways a wild dance to the rhythm of leaves' whispering. Tall grass at the foot of the tree moans a fitting accompaniment. Outlined in blaclt against the pale moon and deep blue slcy, the willow is a fantastic Terpsichore. RICHARD KAUTSKY A Q At the foot of the hill lies a swamp. Each April this expanse of water is covered by clustered hummoclcs of little golden flowers. The water stands so still around the stems of the buttercups and is so clear that the bottom can be seen. The water cress and the stems arising from the mud remind one of a fairy city under the sea. The crawfish scuttle around frequently marring the clearness of the water by stirring up clouds of mud. As you stand at the edge of the swamp and loolc across, you get the impression of a bubbling sea of molten gold. BETTY RANDALL A Q A diver, cutting through the air down, down, down, and into the water is very fascinating to me. He climbs the ladder and steps unhesitatingly upon the board. His lithe body becomes tense. The muscles ripple under his taut slcin. He springs once, twice, and then goes into a double somersault. This movement is so quiclc l see hardly anything but a rolling human ball. He straightens out of it and becomes again the straight, shooting figure, heading obliquely for the water. He hits the water smoothly as he cuts his way through the transparent surface. Nothing but bubbles can be seen for a few seconds, and then a head appears, assuring me that the diver has completed another perfect dive. ADNA M. BRIDGES Q A small puff of smolce spirals slcyward. A shrill whistle pierces the cold air far down the traclcs, and soon the huge blaclc monster of the rails looms into full view. Displaying with utmost pride its long train of cars, the locomotive races onward, conquering speed and time. Gracefully it strealcs around a long curve. The whirling drive wheels and the smooth mechanical motion reveal its marlcs of power and beauty. The tremendous speed decreases as it nears its objective. lts stomach of fire belches forth an enormous volume of thiclc blaclt smolce. Gusts of steam shoot from its sides, causing the long blades of grass along the roadbed to quiver from the onslaught. As the bralces are applied for a stop, the wheels grasp the rails tighter, and a rattling, crashing sound is caused by the bounding coaches. The powerful monster brings its train of cars to a stop with a screalcing sound. JACK BROSSART aa V THE ARSENAL CANNON CITY STREET AT NOCNTIME Surging streams of humanity crossing and recrossing the endless noisy ribbon of traffic. The hats, a bobbing crazy quilt stretched from the cold gray buildings to the edge of the street. The clean fresh smiles of children, shining flowerlilce, in the drab parade of faces. Bralces screeching, a woman's scream, the shrielc of a poIiceman's whistle. Silence . . ominous . . . overpowering . . . Then the rain of footsteps, the rush of the cars, the tide-Iilce rise and fall of voices again . . . . The wail of an ambulance siren- JUNE BLYTHE ' BEFORE A JULY RAIN II I could catch this moment to my heart, The mad sheer ecstacy it brings- Pulling at my dreams, my thoughts, To malce me thinlc of lovely far-oFI things. Mellow, yellow apples Luscious ones of ruslc Little gray sea cottages Hills purpling with duslc. Incredible! A wind could spring From such suppressed torridity, But then if that I understood I'd Icnow life and eternity. HELEN McCREIGHT SUBLIMITY I thinlc, if I might grasp the chill of space within my hands, And hear the symphony of earth: of winds and waves on sands, II I might see a thousand planets through the darkness hurled, And hear the melancholy songs the moon chants to the world, I thinlc I might create a poem all could understand, For it would be a song of God, and not a song of man. LIONEL WIGGAM 67 V ll THE ARSENAL CANNON F E A T U R E S 4 Q Q THE GROCERY ORDER ESTGATE 4011," Mrs. Percival Fitzgerald Jones spolce into the mouthpiece of the telephone. "Vonderheight's grocery," came a gruff response, alter a few minutes. "Mrs, Percival Fitzgerald Jones spealcing, Mr. Vonderheight. l want to give my order." "Oh, yes, Mrs. Jones, what'll you have?" "l want something for dinner this evening. Let me see. How much are geese?" "They are forty cents a pound." "Well, how many pounds would l need for six people?" Mr. Vonderheight sighed. "Why, l thinlc-," he began. "l don't believe l want a goose," the woman interrupted. "What'?" l thinlc l want a chicken." "We have some Fine ones here," the grocer said. "How much is round steak?" "Wen-" Do you have any porlc chops?" Yes, we--" "Swiss stealc might be good." "Yes, indeed, Mrs. Jones." "Well, Mr. Vonderheight, l hardly lcnow what l want. Send over a dime's worth of bologna for lunch for Junior and me. That's all. Goodbye." MARGARET POWELL ll PERSONALITY PLUS HANDSOME senior rushes up to her, catches her hand, and exclaims, "Gee, l'm glad to see you. You loolc great." Another one joins them, squeezes her other hand, and begins in a pleading voice, "Please come over here. l want you to prove to these lcids l'm right." And he leads her away where another crowd ioylully welcomes her. The girls too. There is no rivalry among them. They all love her. And how could they help it? For this popular girl is none other than "Grandma" ofthe old lunch room. Freshmen don't need to be introduced for she's always "Grandma" to Tech, and when we see a former Techite eagerly scanning the lunch room, we lcnow what he's loolcing for-the white band with the green A T S monogram, and "Grandma's" smile beneath it. KATHRYN ADDlsoN 68 THE ARSENAL CANNON THOUGHTS ON A RAINY DAY RIGHT blue eyes glared rebelliously at the world in general. A small nose was flattened grotesquely against the streaming window pane. "Ratsl Ya might know it'cI rain jes on the speshul day, ies when the Wild Cats was sure ta win with me pitchen. And after I worked so hard to get to be pitcher, too. Did I give Stubb Jenkins a walopin' thol He won't be able to eat nuthin but soup fer quite awhile. He sure looks funny with three front teeth out. Looks like ol' Granny Grump that lives on Surrey Hill. "Can ya imagine that guy's nerve thinkin' he'd stand a chanst with me? The shiner he give me was nothin' compared to the two o' his I colored for 'im. "Boy, look at ut rain, would yal I never seen it pepper down so hard. Maybe it'll let up purty soon and we can play after all. I don't mind a little mud. I don't, but Mom ain't so sold on the idea.

He stood as steady as the Rock of Gibraltar with his heels together and chin up. His features were con- tracted. "Shoot," cried one. Through the street echoing from wall to wall, a tremendous roar resounded. Thus the president, for the first time, had his picture taken by an Amer- ican reporter. RICHARD McGAW MURDER HRUSTING his hand into the mass of round objects before him, he drew one forth from among its companions, and, drawing a deep breath, he plunged a keen, razor- edged knife through the victim's skin. Deeper and deeper it sank, until, with a quick, gouging motion he tore out the eye of the poor thing. Holding it off for a moment at arm's length to survey the havoc he had wrought, he again thrust the keen weapon into the skin of his victim and began cutting, first to the right and then to the left. Finally with a sigh of contentment, he laid the victim aside and again plunged his hand into the kettle of potatoes. JOHN MARTIN 69 V THE ARSENAL CANNON ON THE SPCT HE gleam in her eye told me that something was amiss. As l followed her gaze across the. room, l saw that a tall, handsome boy had been the object of her gaze. A grim, mocking smile played about her lips as she inspected her weapon. With an instinctive shudder of horror, l suddenly realized her purpose, but sheer fright held me from sounding an alarm. Mustthis man be an unwilling victim? Swift thoughts of rescue flashed through my mind. Still l was paralyzed with fright. At last l realized the awful disaster was coming. Calmly the girl raised the hand which held the shiny object. She flicked her finger and, opening her compact, began to powder her nose. +++ Teacher, in English VI class fgiving questions on "Lancelot and Elaineul: "Why didn't the Queen go to the Tournament?" Bright Boy: "Because she couldn't get a ticket." +++ M. T. instructor: "lt used to take brains to get somewhere in here. Now, if you're good looking, they make you something." Voice from rear rank: "Hey, l'm still a privatel" +++ An advanced English teacher was showing a scrap book containing leaves and flowers which she had collected while abroad. "What kind of leaves are those?" asked someone.

Stude: "But, coach, l was looking at him upside down." +++ Sarah, Sally Susan Sayer's sister, sewed Sally's six silk stockings Saturday.
