The buildings that border the quadrangle are symbols of the character of the school, the character which has caused the Tech spirit to live and to grow. To the south of the quadrangle the Arsenal stands, the guardian and leader of the campus, the protector of traditions, for seventy years the sentinel that has watched the development of these grounds. To the west the massive New Shops Building with its towering smoke-stack symbolizes power. On the east the Main, largest of all the campus buildings, represents growth. To the north the Auditorium speaks of variety of interest and power. ,And on the seventy-six wooded acres with their fourteen buildings of which these four are a part beauty dwells: in the quadrangle, in Liberty Grove, in the Na- ture Preserve, at the goldfish pool, and always present is the encouraging and in- spiring Tech spirit, a symbol and a challenge, an invisible reality which has lived and will continue to live as long as these grounds are the Tech campus.

THE ARSENAL CANNO PORTABLES T H E B A R R A C K S Of all the buildings now on our campus perhaps one XX S! of the most interesting is the , 1 R Barracks. The retention of the name which was derived . if , , , , . H ilmsl lktltslmg til. from its original use has aid- ti ed in keeping the atmos-. S phere of its former days alive. Completed for use as a barracks in August, 1869, While these grounds were occupied by a United States government arsenal, the building became the scene of typical military activities. The soldiers were drilled in front of the Bar- racks. All lights in the building were turned out at nine o'clock except in the library where the soldiers could read until eleven o'clock. When the United States government aban- doned the grounds and the Winona Technical Institute was established here, the Barracks be- came the scene of classroom activities. In l904 all three floors were occupied by classes of the School of Pharmacy. The first use made of the Barracks under the tenantship of the Arsenal Technical Schools was as the location of the laboratories of the HE ARSENAL CANNON BARRACKS Home Economics department. The first cooking laboratory Was planned and equipped in 1914. This was in a very small room with apparatus for but twenty-four girls and was situated in the extreme eastern portion of the building. Prac- tice in serving had to be done on an old-fash- ioned round table which was placed in the hall. ln l9l6 a second laboratory Was established with an improvement in the serving equipment. The first lunchroom was established in the basement of the Barracks. The kitchen used to cook the food for the cafeteria was only ten by twelve feet in size, and but five cooks were ern- ployed. At this time a system of lunch checks was used. On a board near each cashier these were hung, and the pupils usually bought them in ten-cent groups. Since most of the dishes cost three cents, these checks were valued at three cents each. Students would first buy these checks and, as they selected their food, drop the required number and perhaps a pen- ny in the quart tin cup With a hole in the top that stood in front of each kind of food. This lunchroom looked so drab and plain that the students asked to have it made more at- lContinued on Page 537 9 PROPOSED SITE OF MEMORIAL HALL A MEMORIAL Always hoping, dreaming, aspiring toward the heights, Mr. Milo H. stuart, Tech's gs! by founder and first principal, TN X began on that clear Septem- W . ' ' ber day in 1912 to build on the site of the practically de- serted United States Arsenal grounds a nation- ally known school of secondary education. Mr. Stuart, then principal of Manual Training High School, and his eight selected Manual teachers were organizing this new unit as an "overflow" high school. It was in the winter of that year that Mr. Stuart had first visited the Arsenal to see whether or not it could be used for a public school. The sight that met his eyes was not encouraging. The first floor of the building served as a print shop for the U. T. A. School of Printing, the second was a dirty, cobweb-hung storeroom, the third housed the School of Phar- macy of Old Winona Tech. And, more than that, the grounds were in the hands of a re- ceiver awaiting the decision of the Supreme Court, and any lease which was obtained could be terminated within five days. But in the face of all these obstacles, on Sep- tember 12, 1912, Mr. Stuart, with his loyal teach- ing staff, greeted the first one hundred and eighty-one pupils of Arsenal Technical High School. The second floor of the Arsenal had been divided into eight rooms and these, to- gether with a part of the second floor of the Artillery and ,Electrical Buildings, were the classrooms to be used during the first years. l MR. MORGAN MR. STUART But in spite of the necessity of using make- shift classrooms and inadequate equipment, the school, under Mr. Stuarts able leadership and foresight, grew so rapidly that four years later fourteen hundred students were enrolled. Then on May 22, 1916, the Supreme Court rendered its decision which made the Indian- apolis Board of School Commissioners trustee of the Arsenal grounds and buildings, author- izing it to conduct there schools offering aca- demic and technical courses. This same spring Mr. Stuart resigned as principal of Manual so that he could devote all of his time to the devel- opment of the new school. For nineteen years Mr. Stuart was principal, in November, 1930, he was appointed assistant superintendent of public instruction in charge of secondary edu- cation. At the beginning of the nineteen years he visualized a school that would offer more opportunities to its students than would any other high school in this section of the country. At the end of that time his dream had become a reality. Today, those who worked and learned under the direction of Mr. Stuart are pondering over the question, "How can we preserve the name of such a leader, educator, statesman, and phil- osopher so that future students of this school will realize what opportunities he made pos- lContinued on Page 373 THE ARSENAL CANNON HE ARSENAL CANNO .--.----I emors THE A i1 LOUIS YREASURER 'N 'RGKII DRUM '1 SPDNS OR OR , VLWILLIAM WATgRg -V SHIRLEY TEN EYCK W EILEEN WESTOVER f A RALPH WEGENERV DALE WILLMAN E .

KContinued from Page 93 sible for them?" A fitting answer to this ques- tion is found in the proposed plans which the special committee of the Board of School Com- missioners recently recommended to the School Board, for the construction of a new campus building to be called the Milo H. Stuart Memor- ial Hall. The plans for this Memorial Hall call for fifty-four classrooms, two large study halls, an auditorium with a seating capacity of three thousand, four special classrooms for physical education, two for boys and two for girls, with locker and shower rooms. Also included is a large stage which would open into the audi- torium and one of the study halls. As a tribute to Mr. Stuart the alumni plan to contribute a life-size statue of solid bronze to be placed in the main lobby, while Mr. Stuart's philosophies and views of life will be commem- orated by quotations cast in bronze, to be placed on the walls of the rooms and halls. Considering it as a continuation of the work that Mr. Stuart began, Mr. DeWitt S. Morgan, Tech's present and second principal, has said, "Such a building will stand as an imperishable monument to Tech's founder. It will make it possible to keep before all Tech boys and girls who pass through the halls and who work in the classrooms the memory of the man who planned and worked so hard that they might have such an opportunity. All Tech will hope for the realization of the plan which the com- mittee has recommended. The building will mean not only a step toward the solution of the physical problems of the school, but it will also be a lasting contribution to fine school ideals through perpetuation of the memory of the man to whom Tech owes an eternal and immeasur- able debt."

Upon his arrival at the hotel, he finds that the caretaker also has a key, making two keys. As the story advances, it is found that an old hermit, a reporter, two crooks, and the owner also possess keys to the Inn, and with each dis- covery the mystery grows deeper. The Inn becomes the scene of highly involved and exciting incidents for a period of about eighty hours. As a climax the theatre-goer finds that this action is only the story as the author has imagined it. He completes his novel on time, and when his friend appears, he proves that he has won his bet. , 39 By Aurania Rouverol GROWING PAINS cAs'r or CHARACTERS GEORGE MCINTYRE ..,.,, TERRY MCINTYRE ,,,,. , PROP.

The play presents a highly amusing picture of a typical American family with the worried mother, professor father, and two children, a 'teen-age boy and a tomboy little girl. The audience follows the children through their love affairs with great interest, laughing at and still sympathizing with them in their perplexing sit- uations and with their parents who try to appre- ciate the demands of youth. The action is centered in a garden party which the children give for their friends. Dur- ing this their actions and emotions reach a highly exaggerated climax, forming the break- ing point after which they return to their for- mer happy 'teen-age state of normalcy. THE ARSENAI.

During the seven years following the loss of his only real friend and love, Iim had lived almost alone and on his own. He had a father with whom he sup- posedly roomed, but any meeting between them was an accident. Therefore jim went his own way, and that way, due to environment, was not of the best. In jim were to be found the fundamental characteristics of a really good boy, but long and unrestricted contact with rough, unscrupulous boys had lessened his sense of right and wrong until here he was, seething inside with the strangest, most indefin- able feeling his seventeen years had known. He had just listened to the fatherly advice of Mr. Olin Andrews, principal of Winona High School. "All right," concluded Mr. Andrews. "I think you understand that this is your last chance to show some of these qualities I've been talk- ing to you about. You realize that your disci- pline record as it stands now is sufficient reason for expelling you from this school and that any further indiscretion on your part will force this issue. You may go now, lim. l'm trusting you. Don't break that trust, will you? Your hand on it?" lim clutched the proffered hand and turned to the wide window in an effort to bring his emotions under control. As he raised his eyes, he suddenly noticed the broad expanse of the campus, quiet now and lovely in its new spring buds. Then he knew-he knew that he had learned to love this school. "I don't want to leave Winona-not that way. Winona-that means something to me - that means everything to me." He turned suddenly and squarely meeting the eyes of his superior, he uttered two words distinctly in a low vibrant voice, "Thank you!" His sincerity pleased the principal as he stood with a satisfied, rather tender, happy smile watching the door through which young jim Burgess had just bolted. Swinging along the walk back to his class, jim thought, "Wait, just wait until I see the gang US E I Ili, I Wm HE ARSENAI. CANNON ' i l 1 42 and tell them about Mr. Andrews. I don't think any of them ever thought about him seriously." "Aw, what's the matter with ya?" berated Duke that night as the gang sat around the table in their club house. "Andy sure must have a sweet personality to bring you, Toughy -yaa, a swell name for you now-down to talking about the 'trees on the campus,' and 'the green grass,' and 'the spirit of Winona.' Listen, Toughy, what's come over ya? Here we're all sort of disappointed 'cause ya didn't get pitched out and cause some excitement around here, and you're rejoicin' 'cause you get to stayl" "Oh, can't any of you understand? No, I guess notg but if you talked to Mr. Andrews, you would-all of you!" "Aw, for Pete's sake, lay off, will ya? This is a fine way for our president to be actin'! And where'd you get that MR. Andrews all of a sudden?" "Don't say anything else about him, or you'll find yourself face to face with the floor! And, since you don't like the way your president acts, your president resigns right here and now!" Slam went the rickety door of the club house and stalking down the walk went a sore- ly puzzled and hurt young man. "'I'hey're the losers," he thought. "I wish I could make them understand!" r Mr. Burgess looked up as the door slowly opened, "Dad?" "Yes, well-hello! Haven't seen you in ages. What ya want? Money?" "No, Dad, I want to ask you something." "Well, I don't have much time. I have to meet some of the boys at nine-fifteen." "I just wondered if you knew anything about geometry. I just can't get it." "Who, me? Oho! No-not me-I don't even know what it is. Say, why all this sudden in- dustry? I didn't know you ever studied!" "Oh, I just decided to be something, Dad, somebody big and good. I might be a prin- cipal of a high school." "Aw, jim, you can't ever be nothing like that. Why, ya have to go to college and everything, and how are you gonna do that? There's too many other handicaps, too, with me, your dad, and with kids like Duke and Bert, your bud- dies." "Dad, you don't understand either, do you?" this rather tragically, "but you wait and see!" he added with determination. After this lim worked hard at his lessons. His teachers soon realized that he had great possi- bilities. With his intelligence directed in the 43 right manner, he was capable of accomplish- ments equal to those of the very best of the students. Lacking funds with which to attend a regular college after his graduation, lim secured a day- time position and attended night courses at a local college extension. Economizing, he was able to save enough money by the end of two years to attend classes at the regular college where he completed the requirements for a teacher's license in his state. The day lim left for the college campus, the local newspapers carried heavy black head- lines-"Olin I. Andrews, School Superinten- dent, Dead." Iim's saddened mind went back to the day when he had cried in the office of this same Olin Andrews, then principal of Winona High School. Iim still couldn't define his emo- tions, but he knew that this man had given a very definite something, fa very wonderful something, to that "tough" young man so long ago. In many ways Iim's fame spread. He became noted for his ability to teach, for his deep, fun- damental thinking, and for his writings. As he became nationally known, he found himself more and more in demand. "Won't you accept a position on our faculty?" wrote leading universities. "Won't you serve on this board?" "Won't you speak here?" "Won't you write us an editorial?" Won't you -won't you-won't you? One morning as he sat sifting through his mail, he came upon a letter from his own Wi- nona High. He opened it eagerly. In it he found a climax to his own personal career. "Winona High School, in order to make im- mortal their founder, the late Mr. Olin I. An- drews, is constructing a beautiful new building on the campus. This is to be dedicated to Mr. Andrews. Since you were at Winona at the same time that Mr. Andrews was principal here, we believe that you can most ably express in words that very great, that immortal spirit that he gave to Winona High School. Will you im- part that spirit to those who never knew him? Will you give the address at the dedication of this Memorial on May twentieth?" 'k 'k 'k As lim sat down at the close of his address, he felt that he had touched the very hearts of his audience. Walking away from the building, he stopped and turned to look again at the Memorial. Had he not been a man, his eyes would have been filled with tears. "I didn't fail you. I didn't break that trust. Did I-Old Andy?" BETTY BRAY, English VIIC. .ABROTHER' "Do I have t' take her along, Mom?" Poor Bill had one of those mothers who thought it was "sweet" for an older brother to escort his kid that might include both. This S CARE f Aff? 1. 3 lf' -ij' i sister to every social function t-uvfE'1m- ' particular time was the senior high school dance in which a senior was allowed to bring an undergraduate or alumnus if he desired. Mrs. Martin had begun a week and a half before the dance to persuade Bill that he should take Marie. He should be proud to be seen with her. He should have thought of it him- self. "But, Mom," Bill protested, !'she's so young. Why, she's practically a nothing-a freshman!" That last word was emphasized by a sophisti- cated, superior twist of the mouth. "A fresh- man!" He'd be the laughing stock of the senior class. Anyway, Alice would be expecting him to ask her, and she'd probably be angry with him if he didn't. He just had to go to the dance, too, because in a small town like Oak Hill everyone had to know the reason for every- thing. "Doggone!" he muttered under his breath. "Did you say something, dear?" queried Mrs. Martin. "Uh-no, I was just thinking it would be quite a fine idea if Marie could find some senior to take her. She'd have a much better time, I'm sure." "Oh, no, she's too young to have dates with such old boys, and it would break her heart if she didn't get to go. You know, she's been planning for weeks on what she'll wear. This will be her first formal dance." "Oh, I guess l'll have to take her, all right. I don't see any way of getting out of it. Here she comes now. Gosh, look, Mom, anklets, roller skates, ribbons. You could point her out as a freshie a mile away. Imagine taking her to a dance. l'll have her on my hands all eve- ning." y A young girl about fourteen came running into the house. Her cheeks were glowing with health, and she was rather pretty in compari- son with most of the girls her age. "What was he saying about the dance, Mother?" she asked exuberantly, and without waiting for an answer, she turned to her broth- er and exclaimed, "Oh, isn't it wonderful, Bill? I can hardly wait!" "Oh, yes, it certainly is. I can hardly control myself, either." With this, he went upstairs THE ARSENAL CANNON singing, "If I Had the Wings of An Angel." "What's the matter with him, Mother?" she asked after removing her fingers from her ears. "He acts so queer." "He's just in a dark mood. He'll be all right by tomorrow." But he wasn't. The next morning and, in fact, for all the next week and a half, he was very irritable. Nothing pleased him, and he kept to himself with the pretense of studying. Mr. Martin couldn't understand what had got- ten into Bill. He had never known his son to be so -studious before. Perhaps grades were coming out in a few days. At last that fateful and glorious nightlcame. Fateful for Bill, glorious for Marie. Marie began getting ready at six-thirty. The dance started at nine. She needed every bit of this time, however, because the excitement slowed down her natural progress. Every now and then was heard, "Mother, where's my fin- ger nail polish?" "Mother, do you know where I put my belt?" "Where did I leave my shoes?" Not a word was heard from Bill's room until about eight-thirty when he emerged, looking very neat and handsome-and bored. All he could think about was what the boys were going to say -and Alice. Oh, why couldn't he stop thinking about that awful dance? He'd find out soon enough what was going to happen. He looked at his watch nerv- ously and sighed. How could it take one girl so long to get ready? Finally he heard Marie call from her room, "Billl" "Yeah?" "Bill, close your eyes now and don't open them until I say so. Wait till you see mel" "Some treat," thought Bill to himself as he closed his eyes. He might as well start humor- ing her now if he was going to have to all the rest of the evening. "All right," she said. q"You can look now." He really was startled when he did, but he tried his best to act nonchalant. She was actu- ally the most beautiful girl he had ever seen in Oak Hill. He hardly recognized her. The nat- ural glow of her cheeks was very attractive under the dim hall light, and the thin white dress she wore seemed to give her an ethereal ap- pearance. Surely no one at the dance would recognize the Marie Martin that spent her entire spare time skating up and down the streets of Oak Hill. This gave him an idea. As they drove, Bill said, "Say, you look like a different person. I betcha nobody at the dance will know you." r "Am I better or worse?" she asked. HE ARSENAL CANNON y 44 "Gosh, lots better. You look almost as old as Alice in a formal." No use to tell her she was even prettier than Alice. She might become so vain that she wouldn't fall in with his plans. "You know," he continued, "I'd like to have some fun tonight." "Well, so would everyone else, I guess." I "Oh, I don't mean that way. I mean I'd like to introduce you to the people you know as my cousin to see if they will really know it's you, see?" "Yes, I see, but it doesn't make sense. What do you want to do that for?" "I'll tell you sometime. Will you?" "Well-oh, all right." "O. K., then it's settled. Gee, I can hear the music from here. I hope I can find a parking place." He did, and soon they were entering the dance hall. Bill was greeted with loud shouts of welcome from several of his friends, but Marie was heralded by no one. "Good," thought Bill, "they don't know her." Next were the endless introductions. "Iimmie, I want you to meet my cousin, Ruth Gentry. Ruth, this is limmie Burk." "So, Bill, you've been holding out on your old pal, huh?" Marie could hardly suppress a giggle, for she had known Iimmie all her life. "May I have this dance, Miss Gentry?" Iimmie asked. "Is it all right with you, Bill?" "Oh, I guess so," said Bill in a most reluctant tone of voice. "Well, it worked," he thought as he watched Iimmie and Marie dancing onto the dance floor. No sooner did they reach the mid- dle of the floor when someone cut in. Bill knew that if a stranger came to Oak Hill, he or she was treated royally. Now that she was off his hands, he would find Alice who by luck had come with Iimmie, explain, and have a good time the rest of the evening. IUNE MAGEL, English VIIIC GARFIELD PARK I revel in its beauty When summertime holds sway, With fountains softly playing And flowers blooming gay. But, oh, the breathless beauty Of a silent winter night, With snowflakes gently falling Beneath the pale moon's lightl ALBERT EID, English VI 45 73rd STREET It's not much of a street- really. The fact is it always seemed rather sordid to me. But there were some who loved it. I think they still do. Yes, I suppose they still live there, too, gossipy, homey, common people, lacking ambition but possess- ing contentment. Contentment? Their lives were anything but smooth. Smelly tenements, money worries, loves, hates! That's really a picture of 73rd Street. Now, I always hated it. I loathed the people and their obvious contentment at-just living. It disgusted me, probably it still would. Some day I'll go back-then, I'll know, perhaps. I hope to find out how many-if any-of those humans I knew ever escaped. On 73rd Street a person is born, and right there his whole life is laid out for him. Of course, he doesnt think so. He determines, "Pops a tailor. Not me! I ain't gonna be no tailor." But he'll be a tailor, or a butcher, or a grocer, or a milkman, or-there are very few I remember who escaped. Mike Sherwood did, for instance. Yes, he got away. I heard re- cently that he was producing plays, or writing them, or something like that. I forget. And then there was George Massey, he's a surgeon now. No, he's not a great man-just a doctor. But he's not on 73rd Street. Why, I remember Mike and George-they were good pals. I'll never forget seeing the two of them wandering slowly down the street, kick- ing orange peels, and dreaming. Well, I sup- pose they were dreaming. Maybe they were planning. They would trudge through the snow together, trot through the rain, cut through the biting cold, or wander along under the blazing sun. On the Street it was funny how the pave- ment seemed to reflect those sun rays, blinding, right into your eyes. And the garbage cans along the curb did the same. The people would sit on the tenement steps and gossip and argue, and laugh, and fight. I suppose they still do. I suppose I'll go back some day. All alone. I'll walk along the Street and remember-I've a summer house now and an elaborately fur- nished apartment uptown-Oh, I'm much better off. That's what I'll think about when I wander along, remembering. How much better off I am than those people. Much better off: friends, , I if ifiiititfllll-1-r T " good home, no pecuniary difficulties, few hates -fewer loves. And fewer loves! Well? Yes, fewer loves! In fact, no loves! But I'm much better off. On the Street they wish they were in my position-and sometimes I wish-I wish -I wish I were sitting there on those steps in the glare of the street lights-gossipinge-and joking, and laughing-on 73rd Street. IOSEPH HAYES, English VIIIC YOUTH AND MORNING The gold of the rising sun overspread the wakening world. Somewhere a bird burst into glorious song and another answered. The clock in the Arsenal tower said seven o'clock. Iade green turf, deepened here and there by patches of shade and broken by the walks, stretched from building to building from the street. Trees, many of them reminders of the days when Tech was only a forest, flaunted their newly budding leaves. Looming majestically above them all towered the old Arsenal, its history reaching back more than half a century into the past. Against the more sober background of its real- ity are woven threads of infinite beauty. If only the blind who search for glamour could grasp those gleaming threads and see! Seven forty-five! Students began to arrive. Youth and morning! Glorious youth with all its tragedies, its comedies, its young loves and its heartaches. Clear-eyed young people, facing life, on the verge of stepping out to try their wings, and still holding back a bit, lingering yet. Boisterous and gay, serious and shy, bold and timid, and the worst among them good. They are the America of tomorrow. Soon they will have taken up their life. They are blazing now with all the warm splendor of a million myriad flames. Some of them will dim and go out quickly. Others will burn brightly for many years and then finally die, but some will glow on and on, and even after they are dead they will leave a golden afterglow. Their trials will be great and many, and hardships will come and sorrows so poig- nant as to seem almost beyond human endur- ance. But trials and hardships, met and conquered, strengtheng and sorrow refines and broadens. But they have the power to make life splen- did, and as the morning of their lives merges into afternoon as did that beautiful spring morn- ing, God willing, they shall live. Oh, youth, make life glorious. AVIS COVAL, English II THE ARSENAI. CANNON WHAT NEXT? Four years ago I was look- ing forward to a great event. My elementary school days were almost over, and the E It future meant high school days at Tech. Nothing that I was leaving behind seemed very important compared to the possibilities of the future. Of course, I only dimly realized then that classmates I had known for eight years would scarcely ever be seen among the surging thou- sands. Teachers I had grown to love would be left behind and rarely met again. What of it? Many new friends would be made at Techl The commencement and the class party were very important events of those elementary school days. Life was full of color and great expec- tations. Now I am looking back on that experience, a dim memory of the past, almost crowded out by the four years of study and associations in high school. Yet the things that seemed unim- portant then are now the outstanding mem- ories. The party, the commencement, and the anticipation of high school seem small in com- parison to the memory of the teachers who en- couraged me to believe in myself and who inspired me to do at least a few things better than the average. Among them was my teacher of algebra in the eighth grade. She set us individual tasks which we could do at our own rate of speed. Very soon I knew I had found my field. She knew it, too, for she encouraged me by appre- ciation and additional work not expected of the class. Everything I accomplished helped me to believe I could do more. This gave me con- fidence for the work in mathematics which I have since been able to do. Now as another lune is approaching, my thoughts turn again to the future. Will it be a commencement of a fuller life and greater ac- complishment or just the end of high school life? Will I look back with everlasting gratitude upon the teachers at Tech who have inspired me with confidence and ambition? Will the asso- ciations and friendships of fellow-pupils during these past four years give cherished memories for the future? Yes, I feel sure that these memories will fol- low me as I leave high school. Perhaps these optimistic predictions will come true not only for me but for many of the seniors who will soon be leaving the Tech campus. On the other M ' A 4.

There lives each tree, its lite I created and sustained by the common work of leaves, branches, roots, and twigs. When those trees were planted in l9l9, the living parts of each did not work independently, growing and resting as they willed, but together they grew and lived and kept growing, until they stand today, a constant reminder of the courage and the strength of the Tech students who entered the World War. Twenty-four years ago eight teachers and less than two hundred pupils started this great institution with the spirit of unity. Each one did not work alone, rather, they worked together, and their spirit of adventure, of pioneering, ot achievement has developed the true Tech spirit, that intangible something which succeeding groups have carried on. It is that spirit which Tech lives, and which we, as part of Tech, must continue to live. BOARD OF CONTROL Closely associated with human values cre- ated by our school is the fine philosophy ot the founder of Tech, Milo H. Stuart, a philosophy which is a challenge for us to search for, dis: cover, develop, and maintain, a philosophy which Tech's second principal, DeWitt S. Mor- gan, possesses, and of which every pupil is conscious. Mr. Stuart once said, "Take that which We have at the start, and through analysis make of it a working capital, constantly adding our divi- dends to our capital stock." Tech started in a few rooms of the old government buildings, full of cobwebs and dirt, but with a campus of seventy-six acres. To this, our capital stock, have been added more buildings, walks, drives, and beauty of landscape, and out of this have grown dividends, a greater institution, the Arsenal Technical Schools. Like the trees in Liberty Grove, like the found- ers of Tech, like every group on the campus, we must carry with us now and in the future that intangible Tech spirit. Some day let us say, "Following the philosophy of Milo H. Stuart, we have added much to our capital stock, and from this we have received the most valuable of dividends-the true Tech spirit."

Myers devel- 5, oped a s q u a d composed , chiefly of sophomores and juniors that captured the city championship for the third consecutive year, won the sectional, and split even in four dual meets. ln the season opener the tracksters swamped Warren Central, 100 273 to 16 172, were trounced by Kokomo, 71 to 46, and were nosed out by Wiley of Terre Haute, 59 172 to 57 172. The squad retained its city laurels by amassing 68 points with Washington, the runner-up, gar- nering 58. Tech scored an easy 84 1! 3 to 32 2X3 victory over Anderson in the last dual affair, and as the CANNON went to press, it paced a field of fif- teen schools representing four counties by total- ing 35 Z! 3 points to carry off team honors in the annual sectional meet. The freshman track squad, under the guid- ance of Coach Ross Lyons, recorded three vic- tories in as many starts this season. Fifty members composed the team which downed Washington, 61 to 54, Ben Davis, 63 to 54, Warren Central, 76 to 41, and won the city freshman meet with a total of 75 113 points.

When the CANNON went to press, two games with Richmond, return tilts with Anderson and Danville, and' a single en- counter with Ben Davis remained on the sched- ule in addition to the North Central Conference tourney. INTRAMURAL PROGRAM Under the direction of Mr. C. P. Dagwell, a complete intramural program was conducted during the past semester. In the inter-roll room basketball tournament held at the gym each day a total of sixty-four HE ARSENAI. CANNON teams participated. After several weeks of elimination marked by defaults and freak scores, Roll Room 297 conquered Roll Room 75 in the championship contest. With games being played in the attic of the Main during the lunch periods, the ping-pong tourney attracted a large number of entries. Fred Morris, a sensational freshman paddle wielder, defeated the field and succeeded in carrying off the crown after downing two senior rivals in the final round. During the warm weather, Mr. Ross Lyons di- rected a special track and field schedule of eight events designed exclusively for freshmen in an effort to develop athletes for future track squads. GIRLS' PLAY DAY The annual Girls' Play Day, which was held on Supreme Day, had ten events and a relay. During the semester physical efficiency tests had been given to the girls and the ones who excelled in these were chosen to participate. For first, second, and third places ribbons were given, together with l0U, 75, and 5U points, respectively. After the events were over, a program, "Merry May Day," consisting of a Maypole dance and folk dances, was given on the lawn before the Main with girls in all classes participating. 53 THE BARRACKS CContinued from Page 81 tractive. An artist from Manual, Mr. Otto Stark, added some artistic touches. A feature was a large butterfly painted on one wall. ln 1917 the lunchroom was moved to what was then the garage but is now the old lunch- room. During part of the time the lunchroom was also used as a study hall. At one time lunch and a study hall were conducted at the same time. The ninety members of the faculty at that time held their meetings on the third floor of the Barracks. In the summer of 1918 during the World War two detachments of soldiers were stationed on the campus. The desks and seats were taken out of the classrooms in the Barracks and army cots installed on the second and third floors. The first detachment consisted of five hundred and fifteen enlisted men who possessed some physical defect that kept them from active serv- ice. They were sent here to learn some trade useful in their position in the noncombatant troops. They were required to take seven hours of school work a day. Sheet metal, radio shop, cabinet making, and other such subjects were taught. During the presence of the second de- tachment which consisted of conscripted men, tive hundred and seventeen of them, the influ- enza epidemic was at its height. The Barn was used as a hospital, but it became so crowded that several cases were put in the Barracks. The entire campus was quarantined. Every Saturday the men were required to air their bed clothes. To do this they hung them out over window sills and porch railings mak- ing an unusual sight for ot school campus. In the evening the men had boxing matches, band concerts, and wrestling matches on a band stand built just West of Lilac Lane or the walk from what is now the fountain to the Bar- racks. The spectators sat on the steps and porch to watch. Later in the fall the men were all transferred to another camp, and school was resumed. Since 1912 the Barracks has housed a great number of different types and kinds of classes. Among them have been chemistry, Spanish, expression, physiography, and at the present time jewelry, plumbing, and the three foreign languages-French, German, and Spanish. If the proposed Milo H. Stuart Memorial building is erected, it will probably be on the site of the Barracks and the old Portables. BETTY BRAY. R. 0. T. C. For the fifteenth consecu- tive year opproximately s e v e n hundred and fifty cadets in the R. O. T.
