His weather beaten countenance betokened the fact that it had been exposed to countless winds. From beneath shaggy brows, watery blue eyes stared mildly at the universe. Homespun, ill fitting clothes adorned his person, and he looked just what he was-an old fur trader. He came from Canada to this little settlement called jim Falls in order to live with his small grandson Clikewise bearing the appelation Charles john Gil- royj whose parents were dead, Playing about nearby was this little boy, a freckled-faced, red headed youngster of seven summers. On seeing his grandsire he called out, i'Won't you tell me some stories now ?" "Perhaps there is time for a few before we go to bed," came the reply. "What do you want ?" "Tell me about how you First came here," the boy answered quickly, "about you and father- oh, everything." After settling himself comfortably, the old man gave a long satisfied look at his surroundings, hills, trees, trees, and more trees, with only a few cottages visible in the distance. He then be- gan his oft repeated tale. "I was an adventurous youth and couldn't be satisfied at my home in Toronto, Canada, until I tried my luck at fur trading in the Lake Superior region. Here I met and married your grand- mother-she of part Ojibway blood. A few years later I established a fur trading station of my own, and did very good businessg but five years in this wilderness, bargaining with Indians, proved to be enough. ln 1830 we returned to Canada. Later your father came back to get work in a lumber camp, leaving his young wife in a sawmill settlement while he was away." ':Yes, but tell me about my mother." "You can imagine how a young bride, a young girl brought up among best society, felt mak- ing her home in this poor lumbering vicinity, inhabited by crude, uneducated lumbermenf' "Do I look like my mother?" queried the boy. "You, child," the answer came back slowly, "are the picture of your father, but you have your mother's eyes." The speaker gazed into the small upturned face before him, and could see again the wistful look of the lad's mother the first time she came to that uninhabited country. "She was tall and slender," he went on, "very graceful, and had abundant smooth black hair and clear gray eyes that seemed to read every thought in your mind. Strong, alive and full of the joy of life. Ah! she was an unusual woman. At first she mistrusted those lumbermen-they were repulsive to her, but she adapted herself to the surroundings and came to be a general fav- orite among them. "With her cheerful winning ways she made this old wilderness a magic garden, but ah! that treacherous Indian . . . " mumbled the old man furiously. A long understanding silence ensued. Charles knew that next would come the story of his mother's tragic death. "Betty one day was standing nearthe edge of a stream near the house with you in her arms. You were about ten months old. Softly she sang, slowl swaying her Iithe body to and fro with the breeze that playfully tossed your baby curls about. Irlow she cherished your ringlets of gold, for her hair was as black as night. After you were asleep she sat down and gazed contentedly about her and finally went to sleep to be rudely awakened by a rough hand placed on her shoulder in no gentle manner. To her astonishment a strange Indian stood before her in all the glaring fierceness of war paint. By gruff sounds and by motions of his hands he made known that he demanded you, Charlie, to be given to him. She refused, and the Indian made signs that in another moon, he would come back and scalp them all. She did not tell anyone about it at first, thinking that he wouldn't return, as the other Indians seemed friendly. Ah, sonny, I can't bear to go into the details of her heroic death. He returned, but your mother was the only victim." A wistful, far-away look in the eyes of his grandson made the old man stop. To Charlie the story of his mother's heroism and her love for him, never failed to fan his burning desire to make himself worthy of her, to do some great deed to measure his manhood as she had mea- sured his value. The grandfather seeing the wistful look in the boyfs eyes, passed- to a safer subject. "Because of the great wealth of the vast tim- ber lands, the Chippewa Valley gained a large population Lumbering was the chief industry and there was little farming done. "By the time you were born in 1850 these operations were well under way, and the large Bgprgpg BARK CANQES QF WILD RICE CATH- forests were disappearing to be replaced by stump ING OJ IBWA dotted fields stretching for many miles, just as they do now farther down in the valley. I never out the trees hereg I love them, they shall stay at least as long as l." How many times had little Charles heard this declaration! And how earnestly it was said. The old man had no desire to better himself. He would not hear of clearing off the land, starting a farm, or building a more comfortable home. Silently theysat straining their eyes and ears to catch sight and sound of the canoes of the Indians in the nearby river. In their ntinds both could see the picture though nothing was visible now. A common scene it was then, the Ojib- way Indians gliding through the many streams. What a picture it was-the almost silent Hgure of the Indian paddling the graceful canoe through the blue rippling waters which were bordered by stately pine trees. The canoe was the Ojibway's chief means of transportation, for they seldom used horses or ponies as did many ofthe tribes. Skillfully were these canoes made of the best birch-bark, and light enough to be easily carried across the port- ages. By the score they were seen going up the 'river laden with supplies before winter set in. Fearing that his grandfather would soon sug- gest that they retire, Charles broke the silence A Duc-our, THE CANOE OF ras with, "l'd like to hear again about the fur trad- Sioux INDIANS ers that lived around here. You didn't tell me how they looked." With an elfort, the other put aside the engrossing thoughts of his youth in which he had been indulging, and, after knocking the ashes from his ancient pipe he took up the narrative again. "From many miles north they came, these grizzled fur traders, with their dog sledges. They were picturesquely dressed in baggy trousers, tucked in large awkward boots, heavy, brightly col- ored plaid shirts, and fur caps, made of the skins of small animals. The tails were sewed on in the back and were allowed to toss in the breeze. Often these fur traders managed the smaller I- . , , l I ,- 7 , BATEAUX, Aaour 1855 l A XMANIGAN SHOOTING THE RAPIDS OF THE FLAMBEAU RIVER ABOUT 1895 sledges or toboggans themselves, but dogs pulled .the larger ones which were about ten feet long and fifteen inches wide." "But how, questioned the lad,"did they get supplies during the winter before the roads were opened?" "For this, Charlie my boy, they had the bateau. lt was a large boat with high pointed ends and used in all logging operations. The keel boat, too, was used. It was per- haps sixty feet long, ten feet wide, and propelled by poles which re- quired the undivided strength of twelve to twenty men to keep it in motion. Often they were poled up the river, loaded, and then floated down again. On the keel boat one man acted as pilot and the others were equally divided on either side of the boat. Placing their poles, which were steel tipped, on the bottom of the river they could walk ripidly in a stooping position to',the stern, and then quickly run back to their former places on the side of the boat and repeat the action. "The Sioux Indians and lumbermen used the wooden ol' the canoe because it was more practical and substan- tial. It was made of a large hollowed-out log and pro- pelled by poles which were wielded by four men. 'AAs it was necessary to have a means of carrying supplies from one place to another down the river dur- ing the log drives, a Hat boat with a house on it was made and called the wanigan. ln this all the camp sup- plies were carried. "Of various sizes and shapes were the logging sleds used in the camps. Some were pulled by oxen, some by horses and some by both. On the top of the high load ol' logs was 'perched the driver." dug-out to carry their supplies in place : 'T , ' A f g"'l..5FV I b fr .. - ., I if ' ' ' A Doc SLED "What is the name of that thing they hauled logs to the river on?" "That's the 'go-devilf Everyone wanted to settle as near as possilbe to the lands bordering A COVERED WAGON ON BARSTOW STREET ABOUT 1865 river banks because of the great haul- ing expense done away with. These were known as 'go-devil' chances. Like a wish bone 'the 'go-devil' was shaped, and the log was fastened by a chain un- derneathf' "Aw, I've heard enough about logging. Tell me about how people come here now, and about that stage coach you said that a man who came to visit us last week rode on." ln Charles' voice was a hint of restlessness, which made "old Charlie" wonder if the boy yearn- ed to move farther down the valley where he would not be so completely isolated from the rest of the world. "Well," he said, "the stage was very uncomfortable and slow, and it took a long time to get here, but it is far more comfortable than the covered wagon in which the old pioneers came. At night our friend stopped at an inn to change horses. 'He also described a journey he took on a steamboat,which he claims is very rapid and much faster than the steam engine." I-Ie knocked the ashes from his pipe, looked around to be sure that everything was safe for the night, and went inside. Charlie, with his chin cupped in his hands, sat dream- ing of a future time when everyone would have neighbors and swift means of transportation. His grand- father's voice calling, "Come, boy, it's getting late, let's take ourselves to bed," aroused him from his rev- erie. We too, my readers, will take our selves over the ensuing years that saw young Charlie take up his resi- dence in Eau Claire and live here for the rest of his life. Upon his death one of our prominent citizens of today found a book he had start- ed to write on the history of Eau EAU CLAIREIS FIRST STREET CAR LAST STAGE CoAcH TO APPEAR IN EAU CLAIRE, ABOUT 1868 This picture was taken at Black River Falls. Claire. With this book as an au- thority he says: "In 1879 the first street car or horse car made its ap- pearance in Eau Claire. The line ran from Shawtown to the Omaha depot, and followed the same street as it does today, except for a few months when the bridge over the Chippewa was being constructed. During this time it ran up the West Side and over the Madison St. bridge. lt also ran up Galloway Street. ln 1887 the electric system was installed and the horse cars done away with. This was one of the pioneer railways in the United States." The Hadley Ferry, which was the only means of getting across the riv- er, was just a short distance - not more than a few rods - from the site of our present Shawtown bridge. -Phyllis-Kelley, '29 r Y, u THE I-IADLEY FERRY, 1880 L I "i -1 7' -Y Wesr EAU CLAIRE ABOUT 1870 fNotice the steamboat on the riverj A Eau Claire in 1872 By something of a coincidence the bird's eye view map of Eau Claire was made the same ear that the state legislature granted the charter forming the city. This charter was granted in Eed- ruary, 1872. The city was made up of the former town of Eau Claire Kon the East SideJ,North Eau Claire Con the North Sidej, and Oak Grove Kon the West Sidel, The last two towns extended from the Chippewa River west to the Dunn County line, about eight miles, with the dividingline A LUMBER RAFT Belonging to the Daniel Shaw Lumber TRAIN LOAD OF Locis Company, about 1890. between them about on the line of the present Grand Avenue West. The parts of these towns west of the city limits were after some controversy, given the name of the Town of Union. The first railroad had reached Eau Claire about a year before the city was incorporated, the first bridge arcoss the Chippewa river had been built. and the Court House erected less than three years earlier. Steamboating and the rafting of lumber were at their height. THE New Ain Pom' APRIL 22, 1929 The Eau Claire Airways, Inc., was organized recently by a group of seven Eau Claire men to pioneer aviation on a commercial basis in the Chippewa Valley. A three-seat Travel Air bi- plane, purchased by the corporation is pictured above, and is piloted by an expert pilot. The old hangar, when remodeled will accomodate four biplanes, and the field will be equipped to service planes. There are 280 acres of land involved in the lease for the landing field. The purpose of the corporation is to operate an airport, conduct a sales agency, school for student instruction and flying, aerial photography, and advertising, conduct sight-seeing flights, and aerial taxi service to other cities. re ln 1872 31 U 3 css LU 'B Q.

Odd wards elect their representatives one year, and the even wards elect their representatives the following year, so that there is never an entirely new board. However, the same person may be elected from his or her respective ward any number of times, successively or otherwise. ln this type of election, the elected member holds omce for two successive years. According to our commission form of government, one of the city councilmen must be a mem- ber of the board, Mayor Stussy acts in this position.

PAUL G. W. KELLER SUPEMNTENDENT or EAU CLAIRE PUBLIC scuoots An Educational Dream Come True lt is largely due to the efforts of Mr. Paul G. W. Keller, who has so ably served our city in his capacity of Superintendent of the Eau Claire Public Schools, that we have "An Edu- cational Dream Come True." For many years hope was expressed to direct sentiment to a new school building. ln the fall of 1924, the Board of Education accepted a recommendation of the superintendent for a 6-3-3 program, including a new senior high school building. The plan was financed by a bond issue of 'li500,000 for the senior high school building, and a later issue of 385,000 for equipment. This program was approved by voters at the polls in November, 1924. From that time on to the present, the constantly expanded program has been worked out. The vocational and manual arts departments were expanded. New courses in machine shop, electricity, and auto-mechanics were added, and the home economics courses were enriched. The reconditioning of the old high school has made the organization of a junior high school possible. Furthermore, funds are now provided for texts and other teaching materials which will make a junior high school curriculum at first level possible this fall. Better facilities were provided for health education. The offices of the old high school build- ingare now being used for the main health unit. Through the efforts of a committee of the Parent- Teachers' Association in co-operation with various clubs of the city, a dental clinic has been made possible. This achievement, coupled with the program already in operation through the gener- osity of the Kiwanis Club, made it possible to take care of every handicapped child in the commun- it , y No doubt the most important single achievement in education is that of religious education. This work has been in operation for five years, and at the present time ninety-two per cent of all the children, from grades five to eight inclusive, are attending classes under the direction of able teachers in various churches of the city. A program of curriculum study has been in operation throughout the Five years, and every teacher is definitely identified with some committee of the curriculum, The result had been a gradual upbuilding and strengthening of instruction all along the line, From a professional standpoint, it is of interest to note that the faculty is one hundred per ,cent in membership of national, state, sectional, and local associations. . Child welfare from levels beyond kindergarten has been constantly promoted through pre- school child nurses' organizations, and work of our school nurses. Nothing reflects the quality of the work, however, as does the Fine professional spirit of the faculty, This instructional force in co-operation with M. Keller's training, ability, and high ed- ucational ideals has made this progress possible. Page Thirty-S ix X27 dt l 'i ff!

Davey, long popular and respected chemistry instructor of Eau Claire High School' was elected by the board of education to fill the vacancy made by the resignation of Principal Clarendon S. Snyder last july. ' Mr. Davey has inaugurated several successful changes. Morning and noon monitor duty is one of the most important of these changes. The front door of the building is opened at seven o'clock in the morning Students arriving between seven o'clock and eight o'clock are admitted to room 102 for study. From seven-thirty to eight o'clock the janitors take charge of the first floor corridors. The students must remain in the front corridor, or report to room 102 for study. Formerly, each teacher in the system was given a week of hall duty at noon. It was found that disciplinary problems could not be handled tactfully with this system, so a change was made. Now, Mr. Wilkerson and Mr. Pratt are in charge of the halls every noon throughout the entire semester. Miss Webb, Miss Bohmsach, and Miss Nystrom have charge ot' the lunch rooms during the noon period. Rooms lOl and II4 are used for the boys' lunch rooms, and room l02 is the girls' lunch room. Students carrying lunches from home are given a chance to get a hot dish from the high school cafeteria. The lunch hour is from l 1 150 to 12:30. At 12:30 students must either go to room l02 for study, or leave the building. All doors are opened at one o'clock. Another change is the three minute period allowed between classes in the morning instead of the customary five minutes. This permits students to be excused at ll:50 instead of twelve o'clock for the lunch period, School convenes again at 1 :20 for the afternoon session. The noon home period is from l :20 to I 130. The usual five minutes are allowed between classes during the afternoon, and school is dismissed at 3 :45. The eighth period is free from all classes. At that time organization meetings are held, and supervised study for those who remain in their home rooms. Membership in one or more organizations is based on scholastic attainment. In order to belong to one organization, a student must have a scholastic average equivalent to participation in athletics-one honor point. ln order to belong to two organizations, a student must have four honor points. lf a student desires to belong to more than two organizations, he must have twelve honor points. In other words, he must be an A student. f The new system of grading which was introduced at the beginning of the second semester is as ollows: A 3 honor points Cexcellentj D-no honor point fpoorj B-2 honor points fabove averagej F -no honor point CFailureJ C l honor point faveragel Mr Davey is to be congratulated on his first year as principal. It has been a successful year, and Sam has gained in the respect and admiration of all. Page Thirty-Seven I I1 -- . K -L ,7-7 ,.-ji if . X ... 5-..

Holyoke and University of California Miss Newell-University of Wisconsin Mr Watson-Ripon College There are so many phases of the study of English that the objectives must necessarily differ widely, The courses in English composition aim to train the student to organize and write with reasonable accuracy a theme of at least two hundred and fifty words in length, to teach him to write correct, interesting personal letters, and accurate, courteous business letters, to help him to form habits of writing and speaking English which conforms to established usageg to lay the foundation for the student, as he becomes more mature, of clear and vigorous expression, and to give him, if he wishes, some knowledge of the theory and practice of journalism, and of the make- up and appreciation of the newspaper. The aims in oral English are to train the student to think clearly and to express himself effec- tively through speech, or to entertain by means of the spoken word. In this division of course, the pupil learns, if he elects to do so, the principles and presentation of debateg he gives extempore speeches and toasts. 1-le also learns how to tell stories so as to hold the attention and interest of his audience. Later, he studies the drama, its history, types, and construction. He also studies something of stagecraft and the technique of the stage. Students electing this course frequently present short plays before the school or before a public audience. The courses in literature have the following aims: to teach the student to read prose with a full understanding of its meaningg to make the student familiar with certain literary masterpieces, to provide him with a sumcient background to make the reading of these masterpieces fully in- telligible. lt is hoped to create in him a sense of the beauty and power in great literature, to give him some knowledge of the technique of literary forms-especially of the novel, poetry, and the drama, and to encourage him to find and to read for himself good books suited to his own taste. ln the courses in literature, emphasis is laid mostly upon types of literature through certain rep- resentative books rather than upon a chronological study of authors and their works. "The teach- er, building upon a foundation of accurate understanding of the writers' meaning, strives to com- municate to the student the connotations which are the life of literature."

Their purpose is to enable our youth to realize what it means to live in society, to appre- ciate how people have lived. and do live together, and to understand the conditions essential to living together wellg to the end that our youth may develop such abilities, inclinations, and ideals, as may qualify them to take an intelligent and effective part in an evolving society." The social science subjects and the years in which they are required are as follows: Sophomore year Required Civics junior Year Required World History Senior Year Required American History Senior Year Elective Economics and Social Problems The course in civics during the Hrst semester deals with community life and the mechanism of our national, state, and local governmentg during the second semester, the student is given an intensive course in Vocational Guidance. The purpose of the World History Course required in the junior year is to give the students an intelligent understanding of human activities and achievements which are the background of our present day institutions and problems. The senior year has both required and elective subjects. ln American History the aim is to gain a knowledge of the content of American History for its own sake as a necessary cultural asset in life, to develop a background that prej udice, superficiality, and irrational attitudes cannot break downg and, Finally. to acquire an understanding of American ideals which should inspire every youth to contribute a splendid and loyal type of citizenship. The selective subjects of the senior year are Economics and Social Problems, and the purpose here is to develop socially conscious citi- zens and responsible citizenship. Methods of teaching are left for the most part to the initiative of the individual teachers, however, almost all of the classes are using the contract plan and socialized recitation. The teachers of the Social Science Department are striving each day in their work to send out truth-knowing and right-doing young people, who may later take their place as intelligent citizens, eager to do their part in city, state, national and international affairs.

PETERSON, Miss ROWLAND The Science Department Mr. Hauge-University of Minnesota Miss Stainer-Milwaukee State Teachers' Mr. Peterson-Lawrence College College Miss Rowland--University of Wisconsin Mr. Standen+Beloit College Mr. Thorngate'-Milton College The Science department is composed of sub-departments of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Physiology, and Elementary Science. The first three are classed as the senior sciences, and the last two as junior sciences, and will be included in the junior high school curriculum. Physiology and Elementary, or General, Science are required of all students, and either Physics, Chemistry, or Biology is required for graduation credit in the senior high school. The ultimate aims of any science study are: flj the acquisition of knolwedge, CD the under- standing of natural phenomena, Q35 the solution of every day problems presented by nature, C45 the development of attitudes of study, abilities and skills, and intellectual interests which lead to the correct use of leisure time, educational and vocational guidance. Physics is the study of force, matter, energy, and their measurement. The specific aim of the course is to stimulate the pupil to do some original thinking about the how's and why's of the physical world in which he lives. , Chemistry is the study of the composition of substances, elements, and chemical changes. The specific aims in chemistry are: the observation of changes occuring in nature, scientific atti- tude, and explanation of industrial processes. Biology is the study of living things, or how plants and animals live. The specific aims are to teach the pupils to observe and study how things live, their relation to one another, how they depend on the physical world about them, and man's ability to control them. Physiology and Hygiene is the study of functions of the organs of plants and animals, and of healthful living. The aim of the course is to teach humanly healthful living, or to keep and gain health more than the mere knowledge of the parts and functions of the body, to promote skill in ,ii . . P the art of living. Elementary or General Science is an organized study of our environment. The aim of the ,. g"K course is to furnish a brief introduction or sampling of the various specialized sciences, to increase A. , if powers of observation, to train in scientific methods, and to apply the principles of science to the , , .gli N- work of the world.

Holyoke Miss Gower-Ripon College Miss Regli-North Central College Miss james-University of Wisconsin Since foreign languages are required for entrance to many schools and for many courses in the universities, it is advisable for the student who expects to continue his education after high school to elect Latin, German, or French. Two or more languages are usually included in a general education. Their cultural and dis- ciplinary values have always been recognized, and being able to read and speak a modern language has many advantages. French is perhaps the easiest language for the younger student to acquire, since the grammar and the word order is more nearly like the English. Four years of French are oH'ered in high school and it may be elected at any time during the course, the earlier the better to acquire Huency and accuracy in pronunciation. A reading knowledge can be acquired very quickly 5 in fact, many students read one or two books of easy stories the first year. After the second year more stories. games, and songs are possible to add to the enjoyment of the language. A four year elective course in Latin is offered to the student. The freshman year leads up to the reading of easy, manufactured Lating the sophomore year finishes with a reading knowledge of Caesar, but in accordance with the Classical Investigation includes much reading of easy Latin. The third year aims to give the student a good understanding of the last days of the Roman Re- public through reading of Cicero's orations. De Senectute is also generally read to furnish an- other type of Cicero's writing. The fourth year includes a reading of Ovid and Virgil, and a study of Latin prosedy. Through the study of Latin one obtains a sensitive attitude toward all linguistic studies, an increased and intelligent understanding of the very large part of English which is derived from Latin, a vivid picture of the Romans as world conquerors, and something of the Roman social and spiritual ideas that are woven into our own. lx German has not yet developed past the stage of a two years' course as this study was put A back in the curriculum in l927. This language may be elected in any of the four years, prefer- X ably not later than the junior year, since one year's work in any language is worth much less than ,aj .. : half of that which may be gained two consecutive years. Freshmen especially are advised to ,jj XXX take the course, for during this time vocabulary and pronunciation are easily acquired. Besides ' , X finding the key to one of the deepest, richest literatures that Europe has to offer, a student learns gf l it to read stories, sing folk songs, and play games in the language.

The Mathematics Department has three general aims in its instruction-the practical, the disciplinary, and the cultural. Accuracy and facility in numerical computation are stressed in all courses. The department aims to have the pupils understand and use intelligently the lan- guage of algebra, interpret graphic representations of various kinds, develop logical demonstra- tions of geometric exercises, the development of spatial imagination, and to acquire such mental habits and attitudes as the following: an attitude of inquiry, concentration, and persistence, a love for accuracy and clearness, a desire for orderly and logical organization, a desire to under- stand and a distaste for vagueness and incompleteness. Students have the opportunity to study four ears of mathematics, including one year of algebra and one year of geometry, required, one-hall, year each of commercial arithmetic, elective in the freshman year, advanced algebra, solid geometry, and trigonometry, elective in the junior and senior years. In Algebra I and ll it is the aim of the teachers to make the course maintain and increase the pupil's skill in arithmetic by stressing evaluation of literal expressions, by checking results, and use of the formulae. The following topics are included: the concept of literal numbers, positive and negative numbers 3 addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of polynominals, paran- thesis, simple equations, special products, factoring, fractions, simple fractional equations, square root, quadriatic sums, and quadratic equations. Algebra V offers work to those interested in a college preparatory course and for those inter- ested in mathematics. This is an elective subject offered to juniors and seniors, and is required of all who plan to enter an engineering college. The topics studied are those which are most fre- quently included in college entrance requirements. Plane geometry, a year subject given in the sophomore year, is required of all students. Solid geometry, an elective semester subject, is usually elected by those planning to continue their study in mathematics, mechanics, sheet metal work, astronomy, engineering, and surveying. These courses in geometry stress namely the ability to prove logically theorems and exercises 1 which help to clear up and impress the meaning of these theorems. 'f A course in trigonometry is offered to those who have completed one and one half years of A- L' algebra. ln this course the student learns to find by use of tables, the trigonometric functions of ' 4 L acute angles, to multiply, divide, find a power of a number, or a root of a number by the use of ,gl V1 logarithms, a study of the right triangle, and many other interesting topics. qi-721 -I 'Rv ,l if f 'Y Cl- ,I -xiii.

One year typewriting may be taken and high school credit will be given, but no college credit will be received for this. Shorthand and Typewriting are given the third and fourth years. Bookkeeping the second yearg Office Practice, the last semester of the fourth year, Commercial Arithmetic, Commercial Geography, the first year 3 Commercial Law, the fourth year. The primary objective of the Commercial Course is vocational. There are, however, other very definite and positive objectives in this course-obj ective of mental development and of strong cultural value, Attention, concentration, memory, judgment, mental alertness-all are called into most active service in the process of taking dictation, and all are trained to function more effec- tively by the training of shorthand. The study of shorthand is a builder of vocabulary. The requirements in shorthand are to write from dictation one hundred words a minute and transcribe it perfectly. ln typewriting, students must write at least fifty words a minute for fifteen minutes. The majority of students write beyond this rate before graduation. Several students have written seventy words or more a minute for fifteen minutes and have received gold Eversharp pencils from the Typewriter companies. We have four makes of machines in school. the L. C. Smith, Underwood, Remington, and Royal. The reason for this is that students will be familiar with the various makes of machines used in offices in this vicinity. Each company gives awards for writing tests of fifteen minutes duration and a limited number of errors. The Eau Claire National Bank, Union National Bank, State Bank of Eau Claire, and the Eau Claire Book and Stationery Conmpay have each given us a silver cup to be awarded to the best student in shorthand, typewriting, bookkeeping, and penmanship. One semester of Office Practice is given for all students who expect to enter business, as book- , keeper, stenographer, or general clerical worker lt includes one period of class work and one 1 period as mimeograph operator. The students from this class are offered the first positions after ,fijf graduation. Filing, letter writing, commercial papers, business ethics, in addition to general re- X view of commercial subjects, are studied. ' ig?

Rational exercises and life habits are essential to this at- tainment, and it is only through proper physical education that they can be emphasized to becom- ing every day habits. Our modern mode of living, especially in the cities, has taken away a good share of the outdoor work and recreation that used to be a part of the boy and girl. The only way these things can be replaced is through gymnasiums, play grounds, and a properly supervised Physical Education Department. The Eau Claire schools during the past year have given every boy and girl an opportunity to take part in some recreational exercise. The big objective of the year was the annual Physical Education Demonstration put on in the l-ligh School Gymnasium April 12th. Between eight hundred and one thousand students took part in this demonstration, and all phases of a modern physical education department in a public school system were exhibited. Physical training is required of all students in the elementary and junior high school, and also of all freshmen and sophomores in the high school unless they have a doctor's certificate excusing them. The type of work covered in the Eau Claire schools at the present time is very broad. ln the grades, gymnastics, plays and games, and some rhythm work is taught. In the junior high school, gymnastics, marching tactics, plays and games, apparatus, tumbling, and dancing is cov- ered, while in the high school an all around physical education program, including intra-mural competition in the major sports is followed out. Besides the regular physical training period, every boy is given an opportunity to make an intra-mural team in some major sport, and compet- etive atheletics are carried on and teams maintained in all the high school major sports. -K gil fl is l is :lx Y , 5 l. lg T t iief Page Forty-Four . ...llff , --, T X ' s.

"The fundamental aims of Home Economics teaching are generally considered to be the de- velopment of judgment and the power to appreciate and enjoy the beautiful, the acquisition of socially worth while knowledge and the development of good habits of thought and technique." Home Economics is required in the junior high school, and a four-year course is offered in the senior high school, but no credit is given for less than a year's work-with the exception of senior girls who may take a semester of Special Home Economics. The selection knowledge of preparational and serving of foods is the important phase of our food courses, and girls electing even one year of this get a good practical knowledge of foods. The dietetics unit, which is classed in the foods division, is of value to all girls and especially to future nurses. After nine weeks of classifications, uses and amounts of food needed by stu- dents, and a special course in home nursing. the girls plan, prepare, and serve the food in the cafe- tcria. During the year these classes, assisted by the home economics girls in the department, gave a bridge tea in the cafeteria, and served eighty-two at the annual football banquet. The applied art and home decoration class has taken care of all the decorations. Senior dress up day in january meant that the cafeteria girls gave a special luncheon, and of course the department has taken care of the usual refreshments at all the High School Parent- Teachers' meetings this year. Our championship basketball boys and their guests were given a banquet after the tourna- ment victory, and seventy guests were served. Good looking clothes, how to wear them, and what clothes to choose is all a part of the Cloth- ing Department. The tailored coats, dresses, and ensembles this year will be featured in the an- nual Style Revue along with smocks, print dresses, and especially good looking silk frocks. Eau Claire is one of the very few high schools that offer a course in tailoring, and the girls are especially fortunate to be able to have this opportunity. Perhaps in time we can have a class for boys for which so many requests have been made. f . il.-- --.D V Page Forty-Five x .- - Y ,K flfii? 'flflifgj 5. , ---,,,. A, ' 5, 'pai 1 , ll fi?

Manual Training Department Mr. Chapman-Stout Institute Mr. Peterson-Eau Claire State Teachers' College Mr. I-Ioule-Stout Institute Mr. Pohl-Oshkosh State Teachers' College Mr. Hovey-Oshkosh State Teachers' Mr. Sherman-Stout Institute College Cabinet making has an attraction to most boys because nearly every boy likes to use tools and see the things that they wish to make, take shape. Many beautiful and useful pieces of furn- iture fire made each year by individuals, and a great many pieces of equipment are made for the schoo s. In this course the student learns to reason and interpret his plans accurately. An apprecia- tion of good lines, workmanship, and initiative are developed. Habits of neatness are established and great stress is laid on accuracy. The Machine Shop class is a class in applied or related mathematics. In using the micro- meter, vesuier, dial test, indicator, dividing head, milling machine or lathe, it is possible to work in thousandths of an inch or less. The machine shop begins with the elementary principles, the easiest mathematical problems, and the simplest methods of applying these principles and pro- blems on some machine. The Automobile Department has this year added enough new equipment to bring it up to a point where it is better equipped than the average small garage The work taken in is of as high a grade as it is possible to get. Obsolete cars are not accepted. This means that the student haS an opportunity to get experience on the cars that are most popular. The Auto Electrical department, though only recently established, has been making good progress. Some equipment has been put in and benches have been made, The first semester of Electricity deals with the fundamentals and study of the trade. Pro- blems in low voltages, house wiring, and storage battery work are studied. In the advanced classes many kinds and types of work are taken up. This year the electrical score board, the short wave broadcasting set, motors, radios, garages, etc., were either built, wired or installed. Field trips to the Chippewa Hydro-Electric Plant, to Gillette's Broadcasting Station, and to the Wisconsin Telephone Company have brought the members into a closer contact with the trade. The Hrst year of Mechanical Drawing covers conventions, kinds of drawings, blue-print read- ing, sketching, and detail and assembly drawings of small machine parts. After completing the one ear of Mechanical Drawing, the student is at liberty to choose either Machine or Architec- turallDrawing. For machine drawing students, machines are drawn in detail, assembly draw- ings are made, and some machine is designed by the advanced student. Architectural Drawing begins with house details for the first semester, and the plans, eleva- tions, cross-sections, details, and perspective of some house, taken as a shop problem are drawn later. ff gt' Page Forty-Six .- ' Nl M ii' r Q' r f M9419 f.

The i Vocational School is a separate organiza- tion, governed by a separate school board and administrated by a separate head, but taught by both a separate organization of teachers and by several co-operatively hired teachers. With the exception of one high school kitchen, one sewing room, and one draft- ing room, the Vocational School owns all the equipment used by the Industrial Arts Department of the high school. The Vo- cational School rents its rooms from the Board of Education, and in turn the latter pays the Vocational Board a rental for the use of its equipment. This reci rocal ar- rangement makes for the most effzzient and economical organization of vocational and industrial training for both schools. lt is because of this co-operative use of building and equipment that high school students have the benefit of so great a variety of in- dustrial experience. The Vocational School operates the evening school in the high school building, and here we find the high school furnishing commercial, chem- istry, and academic equipment for the ben- efit of the Vocational School. ln both the Vocational Day and Even- ing School, when authorized by the high school principal and vocational director, opportunities are given for high school students to make special credits or to make up work in which they may be behind. ln the Applied Arts course of the Evening School is the only opportun- ity to get art instruction of high school grade. In the Commercial Department is found the chance to make an extra credit in typing, stenography, or bookkeeping, As a result of an experiment in practical vocational guidance it was discovered that many high school failures could be salvaged by placing such students in co-operative courses which involved interest factors not found in either school alone. Vocational school students were permitted to take one or two high school subjects, and high school students were placed in a vocational class and given high school credit upon the successful completion of the subject. So well has this plan worked out that several students will graduate from high school who would otherwise have dropped out long ago. The co-operation of the two schools goes farthest in the use of rooms, equipment and teachers. Were it not for both schools taking advantage of these factors, we could not have as splenclidly equipped shops and high school rooms, nor could we have the specialist teacher devoting his or her whole time to the subject for which best fitted. Vocational students are invited to, and do largely take part in, regular high school student ac- tivities. Always they will be found supporting athletic events, debates, and programs, and they are as much interested in high school assemblies as high school students themselves. The Vocational School is responsible for the issuance of labor permits in the city, and main- tains an effective employment service. High school students are given every possible aid in placement in advantageous situations, both in full time work and in after school and vacation jobs. The Commercial Department in the Vocational School was started a year and a half ago. There are now about fort students enrolled taking typing, stenography, bookkeeping, arithmetic. and business English. Tllie classes consist of part-time, half-time, and full-time students, several of whom are high school students. Many of these people are working on part-time jobs until they are capable of holding full-time office positions. The more advanced students are receiving office training in the vocational office, cutting stencils, and doing typing, filing, and stenographic work for the different vocational departments. It is a splendid commentary upon the Fine spirit of Eau Claire that the students of the two schools can mingle without jealousiesor friction. Both schools offer the best of each to the ad- vantage of all their students. MR. BROOK DIRECTOR OF vocAr1oNAL sci-iooi.

This department embraces: first, Home Economics, including a full four year course in Foods, Clothing, Textiles, Dietetics, Cafeteria Management, as well as such unit courses as the Senior Special for those girls who have not earlier been able to take advantage of the opportunities offered in Home Making: second, Manual Arts, which includes, Woodworking, Electricity, Machine Shop, Auto Mechanics, and Mechanical Drawing. Every boy taking any shop arts subject also takes Mechanical Drawing, and in the drafting room opportunity is given to take advanced work in either Archetectural Drawing or Machine Design. The Home Economic rooms are beautiful and ideally equipped without extravagance and useless furniture utensils. The high school foods room is a class room with six unit kitchens, each with its gas range, sink, cupboard, and set of utensils for the use of four girls. The entire ground floor level is taken up with industrial shops which are utilized to capacity by boys who are interested in mechanics of one kind or another. The electrical shop with its house to wire and light up, its door bells, radio, and telephone wiring, its motors, generators, bat- teries and meters, gives the electrically inclined student all he wants to lead him either into trade or technical electricity. , The machine shop with lathes, milling machine, shaper, oxyacetylene welding apparatus, and A .ill Q fine tools, makes possible a training in machine operation and technical accuracy. The auto shop op- Wy ff j , crates a practical garage, but carries on every job primarily for the instructional values of the 1' work. Every student passes through the primary stages of fundamental instruction involving ' X chassis and motors before becoming a practical and fairly skillful auto mechanic.

The Council The Council, a boys' organization, was organized at the beginning of the year for the purpose of placing new life into the school. It was organized primarily to band the high school into one unit, and thus encourage school spirit and pep. The organization has also for its purpose the promotion and support of any ac- tivity which will materially benefit the student body. To accomplish its purpose efficiently and beneficially, the club has restricted its membership to seventeen members. Only those who are outstanding in extra-curricular activities are eligible for membership. The present list of mem- bers includes athletes, debaters, members of student publications, and outstanding boys of the junior and senior classes. The council began its career with an attempt to assist the debate and basketball teams repre- senting Eau Claire. lt advertised the debates, and encouraged attendance at them. It aided the basketball team by encouraging attendance at the Chippewa Falls game by securing bus transpor- tation at a special rate. The council also started work on a new school song, the creating of new yellsq and a pep section in the gynmasium. The organization offers its help to any club sponsor- ing and staging a worth while activity. Meetings are held weekly. They are of a purely business nature. New members are ad- mitted by vote of the entire group whenever there is a vacancy. The applicants for membership must show qualities of a leader Or possess a record of prominence in extra-curricular activities. Principal S. Cv. Davey is the honorary advisor.

The band has been of great service to the school. More than that, it has furnished to its many audiences music that has been carefully interpreted. Some pieces that have brought particular pleasure and apprecia- tion in the past two years are: "The American Patrol," which features clarinets and drums in the approach of troops, and the tone poem, "Dawn," which receives its color thorugh comets, clarinets, baritone horn, and saxophones. ln the list of those who have made outstanding pro- gress, there are several players whose technique from many angles of musical interpretation would permit them to play in professional orchestras. There are players who can play several instru- ments creditably, from either the financial or the cultural standpoint. ln the future this ability acquired in the band and orchestra will mean opportunity. Although much heretofore unseen talent has been brought to light to form a complete organ- ization, many of the band members will graduate in june, so an almost entirely new band will ap- 'f pear next year. :Aj The band has given unstintingly of its time whenever requested, and deserves a great deal of credit for its service to the school gi" 1 "1 1 -tiif .- x. +2 s Page One Hundred Ten " pf " ref If 'J' -0- ' 1- sa as iff' lei .I .lilly 159 ff -A 'f""wF T I-K f . -,L , f 1' .

Circumstances favored the development of the band in 1927 and 1928. However, a fine new group of violinists came into the orchestra this year, Fortunately, also, the orchestra has been able to acquire a fine library of music during the past two years. This point is of great importance to an organization such as the orchestra. At the concert in February, Mr. H. E. Schmidt, guest conductor who had just led the "Faust" medley, addressed the audience for a minute and reminded them that at least half of the value of such training in music lay in the wide acquaintance of players and student audiences with the worlds greatest music. The orchestra has been greatly benefitted by the addition of violin- ists, a flute, a cello, and a viola. Another year will see this organization with full symphony in- strumentation. Few schools can boast of that accomplishment in three years' time. However, there are losses to be reckoned with this june. Some of the finest players this school has turned out will leave at that time. The orchestra appeared in concerts in May, 1928, and February, 1929. Mrs. jane Dralle, Mr. Clarence Stout, Miss Valda Knoke, and Mr. Franklin Krieger assisted the orchestra in May, and Miss Hazel LaBreck and Mr. Franklin Krieger assisted in February. t ' X x I ,y if vi E.... ,JL , xi. t- A . f..z?-? -M HQL.. iiri f 1199.9 Page One Hundred Eleven A .,-. .

Since its organization in 1925, it has sung at many community pro- grams such as school exhibits, spring festivals, operettas, and Parent-Teachers' meetings. During the first semester, practice was held during the eighth period on every Friday. As the need for more practice became evident, seventh period every Wednesday and Thursday was devoted to practice. Miss Spencer directed the girls on Wednesday, and Miss Atherton on Thurs- day. The girls have chosen red smocks and white ties for their uniforms. They wore their cos- tumes for the hrst time at the Parent-Teachers' meeting in February. At that time they sang "The Old Refrain," by Kreisler and "Around the Gypsy Fire," by Brahms. The girls then be- gan work on "Nursery Rhymes" and "Spring," These songs were also practiced for the Spring Music Festival. The members of the organization are efficiently trained so that when they pass into the senior organization they can easily master the more difficult selections. OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER .

Almost one hundred girls turned out when the call was made for members, but all the girls could not be used. The members of last years' organization were allowed to stay in, and the new membership included all who were found able to sing in a chorus. The organization has had between thirty and fifty members all year. The members are required to be in the third or fourth year of high school. The organization formerly met once a week, but this year it is meeting twice a week. On Wednesday it meets under the direction of Miss Honora Spencer who is assisting in the music or- ganizations. On Thursday it meets under the direction of the regular instructor, Miss Fay Ath- erton. This year the girls voted to have smocks of like color and style to be worn when they appeared in a group before the public. The senior girls chose green tailored smocks for their costumes. The smocks met with the approval of all who saw them. It is the first time the musical organizations of the school have dressed in this type of uniform. This year the girls have sung some beautiful songs, among them, "I-Iumoresqueu and "Swanee River" by Dvorak and Wilson, "O Irish Hills" by Lester, "From the Land of the Sky Blue XVaters" by Cadman, "In a Spanish Garden" by Mosqkowsk.

Stump The Stump society is one of the school's oldest institutions. It was organized in the old school in 1908. Primarily organized to foster debate, forensics, and dramatics, it has come to be one of the leading organizations of the school. The Stump has had enrolled upon its roster many of the leading debaters, orators, scholars, and versatile students of the school. Members of the organization must have the scholastic average required by the school for par- ticipation in outside activities. Any high school student passing this rule is eligible for memnber- ship. The Stump encourages the membership of freshmen, so as to secure the boys at an early age and train them with more than one year of work. Members are generally accepted during the first few weeks of each semester. They are admitted by a system of competitive speaking. Each candidate is required to appear before the body and give a reading or speech of his own compos- ition. The try-outs this year produced some fine talks on a variety of subjects. The stump, in its period of existence, has accomplished many things. Besides furnishing material for debate and oratory, its members have been on winning athletic teams. Probably the Stump's greatest production in the entertainment line is the annual mid-winter frolic, the Santa Claus Gallop. This has come to be one of the outstanding social events of the school year. The Clearwater Collegians furnished the music for the occasion.

The society was organized in 1915 for the promotion of fellowship, school spirit, and forensics. The Lyceum has upheld this purpose since the year it organized. Forensics have been greatly aided by the Lyceum's contribution of participators. This club has furnished many of the great orators, debaters, and extemporaneous speakers for some time. All the male members of the last two debate teams were Lyceum members. At present there are thirty-four active members in the Lyceum. The society is limited to sixty members by its constitution, but membership is intentionally kept down to make room for desirable candidates at all times. Alternate businesss and program meetings are held every Tues- day. At these meetings opportunities are given for practice in public speaking, These meetings are with few exceptions open to prospective members who may try out for entrance into the or- ganization. To be eligible for membership, one must attend high school, having a scholastic av- erage of at least eighty per cent for the past and present semesters. He must also be eligiblle under the high school rules, and must be recommended by either a member in good standing or by a faculty advisor. The Lyceum seeks members who are active in school affairs and who have some talents which may be developed to the advantage of the school or the club. The organization activities are centered around four points: the initiation, the Lyceum Tur- key Trot, the january farewell luncheon, and the Lyceum banquet and party. Between their main events there are always other activities. The Turkey Trot holds the place of one of the school year's biggest social events, The spring banquet ho ds the highest place in the Lyceum's calendar OFFICERS FIRST SEMESTER SECOND SEMESTER Magne Ager President Ramsay McDermid George Dickson Vice President George Dickson Wilbur Bridgman Secretary-Treasurer Robert Mills Robert Mills Sergeant-at-Arms Richard Gillette 1, x W f T fs , 'X Page One Hundred Fxfleen :JK il , f4.ttaa.

Hi-Y The I-li-Y, conducted under the combined auspices of the high school and the Y. M. CHA., includes in its membership high school boys in the sophomore, junior, and senior classes. The purpose of the club is well expressed in its motto: "The purpose of the Hi-Y is to create maintain, and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian charact- er." The club also attempts to form a spirit of companionship, not only in the boys of the local branch, but also with the Hi-Y clubs from neighboring towns. ln order to furnish this spirit, numerous joint meetings have been held to which other clubs have been invited. Perhaps the most successful of these were the joint meetings of the Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls chapters, when, in spite of the strong competitive spirit between the two schools, members of both clubs put forth a friendly attitude. The club also has held numerous banquets in the past to honor the athletic teams or gradu- ating classes, and Mr. Warble states that the club intends to continue this excellent practice. The Hi-Y holds weekly meetings at which programs are given along with other forms of amusement. The club occupies a high place among the school's organizations because it mingles pleasure with the more serious work of building character. Mr. Warble represents the high school as advisor, and attends to his duties very capably, keeping up a strong interest concerning the Hi-Y in the school and community. Mr. Bain rep- resents the Y. M. C. A., and also attends to the general instruction of the members. Reverend Hayes has, for the past year, acted as religious instructor for the club, and has, in this capacity, made many friends among the members.

Letter Club 'The Letter Club is an honorary society, whose membership is limited to those earning their E in some athletic manner. The purpose of the athletic club is to advance all forms of athletics as is shown by the motto "Better Athletics." This club is one of the most highly thought of organizations in the school despite the fact that it is not as socially active as some of the other societies. The reason for this popularity is the great honor that goes with admittance to membership. The Letter Club gives frequent ban uets to further all forms of athletics. In the past year banquets have been given to the football and basketball squads, both of which were successful. At these banquets speeches were given by Coach Ha en, members of the team, members of the Board of Education, and other prominent citizens ogthe city. At the football banquet Clyde Hopkins was elected captain of the l930 football team. The faculty advisors of the club are Mr. Hagen. Mr. Sherman, and Mr. Pohl. Each of these has some close connection with athletics, Mr. Hagen being head coach, Mr. Sherman, assistant coach, and Mr. Pohl business manager. of athletics The success of the local team is attributed toa great extent to the influence of this society. Because of competition to receive the honor of membership, a large number of candidates turn out for the various athletic teams. Mr. Davey, Mr. Hagen, and others in close connection with the club are enthusias- tic for this form of organization, and it is predicted that the infiuence of the club in the school affairs will keep up its constant growth. Due to the fact that the Letter Club is chiefly an honorary organization, no regular meetings are held, nor are officers regularly elected. NAX. Page One Hundred Seventeen . ,W ti 45 WE X Ml-.

Girls' Rifle Club The purpose of this organization is to encourage military rifle and pistol shooting. Shooting makes for steadiness, speed, and accuracy, giving most excellent eye training, and is an altogether worth while accomplishment. At the annual meeting in the first week of May, the officers for the coming year were chosen and new members admitted. At the present time there arejust thirty members in the club, since that is the largest number that can be handled efficiently. After this year no one is to be taken in who cannot handle a riHe without a certain degree of accuracy. This is the youngest organization in the high school, having been organized on a working basis only this year. Mr. D. H. Woodworth of this city has been kind enough to give valuable as- sistance to the club in getting started. He gave a lecture on the origin and history of fire arms, and has constructed a sighting bar to teach correct sighting, and has made a sling to aid in steady- ing the gun. The members have learned the standing position, sighting, and firing of the twenty- two rifle. They have learned all four positions of shooting. The club meets once a week on Monday at the City Auditorium where the girls practice the positions, arming and firing of various types of 22 rifles. The National RiHe Association, whose head quarters are at Washington, D, C., has accepted the Girls' Rifle Club of Eau Claire High School as a member. This will enable the club to compete with teams from all parts of the United States, who are enrolled in the National Rifle Association. The local organization received two rifles and several hundred rounds of ammunition per person from them the first of january. There are ten members on a team, and as the club has thirty members there are three teams. When competing with another, the five best targets are sent into headquarters where the winner is de- termined. When shooting in a tournament each contestant is required to use a sling and the official targets. There are different marksmenship medals given by the National Rifle Associa- tion for individual shooting. Mrs. D. H. Woodworth and Miss Webb coach the girls.

Members of the council can generally be seen at the desk in the school library. The purpose of the organiz- ation is to support, advise, and aid in the work of the librarian. In short, the members of the Library Council help conduct the library so as to lessen the work of the librarian. In carrying out its purpose, the Library Council accomplishes many things. lt serves the students by charging Bassetts, Elsons, Breasted Surveys, Bergen and Caldwells, and many reserve books and others from the shelves. Anyone who is in need of help in finding any book is sure to receive assistance from the council members, who are always ready to give any information desired. Besides the work done in the library, there are many duties for the council members in the workroom, such as: mending books, filing magazines, pamphlets, checking mail, and making out fine slips. It has been decided that boys may be admitted to membership if they so desire. At the beginning of next year, when there will be several vacancies, boys will be admitted. Meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of each month. At the first meeting of the year, elections are held. Upon application to the librarian a person is admitted with the follow- ing qualifications: scholastic attainment, membership in junior or senior classes, and a desire to serve his or her classmates. Vacancies are filled at the beginning of each semester by the librarian when assignments are changed. The organization, although in its second year, is firmly established in the school. Each mem- ber receives excellent training in library work, and a practical foundation for advance work is gained by those who are to choose this occupation for their future careers. Officers are elected at the beginning of each year and hold office for the entire school year. OFFICERS President Mary jane Murphy .

' as Fine Arts In 1926, when our present building was new, a group of junior and senior girls organized the Fine Arts Club with the purpose of adding something new to the equipment of the school each year. The club also works for the welfare of the girls of the school. ln its three years of exist- ence, it has established for itself a prominent position. It is the only girls' organization for which members are chosen because of their prominence in outside activties. The Fine Arts have furnished the Girls' Conference Room with a wicker suite and cots, and this year's plans include the purchase of cots for use in the gymnasium. The club is not of a social nature, as there are but two social meetings. The first semester initiation was held at the home of Paulene Bonesho, and this was preceded by a dinner party. There was no social initiation the second semester. The meetings are of a purely business nature, and are held every Monday in the Girls' Conference Room. New members are voted in by the organization. The election of new members takes place only once a semester, and as many are elected as there are vacancies. A sunset dance was held on December 15, and candy sales were conducted during the year to raise funds to carry on the work of the organization. Future plans are in keeping with the aimg "To furnish and beautify different parts of the building each year."

Commercial Club The aims and purposes ofthe organization are, primarily, to arouse a greater interest in com- mercial education, to raise the standard of scholarship of commercial students, to bring those en- rolled in closer contact with the business men of Eau Claire, and to organize the commercial stu- dents of the school into one unit. The organization is of material assistance to the business men of Eau Claire in securing thoroughly competent employees. The club also assists is members in securing positions after graduation from high school, and promotes fellowship and good will among the members by means of occasional social gatherings. These meetings are also instructive, in that they teach that the woman in business the world must be socially active and should not be reckoned in the ofhce merely as a machine. At Christmas time, a special program was held, and candy was distributed and gifts were exchanged. The organization meets on alternate Wednesdays. New members are admitted during the first semester. Those desiring membership must be enrolled in the commercial course and also possess the scholastic average required by the administration for participation in outside activi- ties. There are thirty girls in the organization this year. Each member is required to take an active part in the work of the club in order to contribute to the life of the organiza- tion. One task of the club is to raise sufhcient funds to send contestants in the commercial Held to the District and State Commercial Contests. The former is held at Chippewa Falls, the latter at Whitewater. The club planned to be well represented in the contests this year because of the excellent material in the commercial department. Prize winners in both the district and state con- tests of former years have been members of the Commercial Club.

A., is an athletic organization for high school girls. The purpose of this association is to co-operate with the Physical Education Department in creating interest in gymnastics and athletic activities for girls as a means of promoting physical efficiency, athletic accomplishment, and good sportsmanship. The G. A. A. brings athletic con- tests and subsequent good health within the reach of all high school girls. Many of the girls' athletic meets are conducted by the G. A. A. Besides this, such games as hockey, baseball, volley ball, and basketball are played within the organization itself. The win- ning hockey team each year receives an emblem of purple and white. The G. A. A. has presented many stunts at the high school pep meetings as well as for district tournament mass meetings held in Eau Claire. The point system determines qualifications for memberships. New members are admitted when the have earned twenty-five points. One point is awarded to each girl for every hour that she spends in some game or form of athletics. When the twenty-five points are gained she is en- titled to membership in the organization. The scholastic qualification is that she must have an average of 75. There is no limitation as to the number of members. To retain membership twenty-Five points must be earned each year. Thus every member must actively participate in athletics during her term of membership. Officers are elected during the beginning of the school year and they retain their offices for the entire year.

Those who wish to become members of the organization are voted in at the beginning of eaach semester by the members of the club. There is no limit in the membership in the club, but all of the members must be enrolled in the home economics courses. Last year one of the most outstanding accomplishments was the sending of Thanksgiving baskets to some of the needy families of Eau Claire. This food was donated by the members of the club at a Pound Party at which time each member brought a pound or more of some food. Another creditable accomplishment for which the club should be praised is the work which they successfully did in presenting the revue, "Down Petticoat Lane." This was a fashion revue showing the styles in American dress from early times to the present. The modern girl was at- tired for all occasions, This year the club began its social service work by preparing and delivering six baskets to the poor at Thanksgiving time. For this purpose the entire club was divided into six groups, and each one prepared a bountiful basket. The committee of which Dorothy Steppe was chairman was awarded the prize. Other chairmen were: Dorothy Anderson, Laura Beals, Ethel Stoever, Bernice Bernicke, and Lila Holum. At Christmas time the Home Economics Club placed a Christmas tree in the cafeteria. The girls trimmed the tree themselves, and gifts were placed under it. They were given by the vari- ous home rooms. Miss Lewis, the school nurse, was in charge of delivering this tree to a poor ami . The officers are elected at the beginning of each year and hold office for the entire year.

The Grey Dominoes The Grey Dominoes is considered one of the leading girls' organizations of the school. lt is principally a dramatic society, organized for the puropse of stimulating and promoting interest in dramatics. A secondary purpose is the support of the school interests. Meetings are held the first and third Tuesdays of each school month. Programs of various natures are given, consisting of musical numbers, dramatic selections, and one act plays. Very often lectures are given by members of the faculty and prominent local citizens. The members have many opportunities to appear before the public in the programs presented by the club. ln these programs, outside interest in dramatics is stimulated and members of the club gain experience. That the organization has succeeded in training its members in speaking and acting is evident. With programs within and outside of the club, dramatic interest is greatly promoted. Twice a year new members are admitted into the society. The candidates are tried out, and and members are chosen by judges on a merit basis so that the club is Filled to its quota of fifty. The try-outs are always well attended and only the best of candidates are selected. The judges are generally members of the faculty. That the club might truly adhere to its purpose of promoting dramatics, the faculty advisor is always the public speaking teacher.

French Club The French club is one of the few clubs having both boys and girls for members. It is an organization for those who are studying French. lt was organized in 1914 by Miss Lyman and a few students for the purpose of helping its members to become more proficient in the use of the Frenchqlanguage by having it used in a diHerent and more interesting manner at these meetings. ' The French club has shown Originality on such occasions as the Kodak assembly. At that time a one act play written by Margaret R. Johnson, a member of the club, was presented. The social activities of the French Club, like many other clubs, center about an annual party which was given this year on February Sth. Most of the activities are within the club itself. The programs given at every meeting con- sist of French songs, games, recitations. and short plays enacted by the members. At these meet- ings French is used to a great extent. The president and members speak the language through- out the meeting. This year a new method of qualifying for membrship was introduced. All students enrolled in second, third and fourth year French can be active members, providing they have normally high average and speak French fairly well. Students in the first year classes are associate mem- bers. The popularity of the organization can be readily seen from the large membership this year. The cultural values of speaking and reading French are realized by those belonging to this club.

Pro- fessor Franzke of Lawrence College judged the debate and stated that Eau Claire had won by a wide margin. For the first time in seven years, Eau Claire defeated Chippewa, and with the score of 100-99. Harold Hanson, debater of last year's squad, acted as chairman. The next debate, presided over by Arthur Preston as chairman, took place on February 22, when the Eau Claire negative upheld by Wilbur Bridgman, Captain, Robert Mills, and George Hoban had an "agreeable" debate with Augusta. The debate simmered down to one point on which both teams agreed, making it a very friendly little affair with the Purple Negative winning 100-90. Mr. Williams of River Falls Normal, acted as judge. 1 In the third round, the I-lilldweller's Affirmative clashed with Menomonie, and argued them into a 100-90 decision given by Professor Rush of Macalester College. Mr. Maurice Warble of the Eau Claire High School faculty, presided over the debate. The final debate which took place here and decided which team was to be represented at Madison-Chippewa Falls, River Falls or Eau Claire-was held on March 22. The Eau Claire Negative met the Chippewa Falls Affirmative, john MacDonald of debating fame acting as chair- man. The debate was very close, but the vote of the judges, Messrs. Burroughs, Hanna, and Roat, showed a 2-1 decision in favor of Chippewa Falls. The Eau Claire debating season at home was very successful, the Purple teams losing only one debate on their home floor, and this one only by a very small percentage.

It is a strictly honorary literary society, election to which means "excellence in written English." Members are chosen from those students who have shown unusual proficiency in original writing. Most of the material in the literar section of the Kodak is selected from orig- inal stories, essays, and verse written by members ofy the Quill Club. Membership in the Quill Club is not limited to high school years. Once a member, always a member. Graduate members are welcomed to the annual Quill Club party, and any original writing which graduates wish to send in to the advisor of the club is gladly received. The purpose of the Quill Club is to stimulate and continue interest in creative writing. God wove a web of lovliness Of clouds and stars and birds. But made not anything at all So beautifully as words. They shine around our simple earth With golden shadowings, And every common thing they touch ls exquisite with wings. -Anna Hempstad Branch.

Quill and Scroll The local chapter of Quill and Scroll, the National Society for High School journalists, has been organized in Eau Claire High School during the last semester. This is one of the two na- tional organizations in the senior high school. Members of Quill and Scroll must be chosen from students enrolled in high school, and must at the time ot their election, be able to meet requirements for membership as indicated in the na- tional constitution. A student in order to be eligible must be at least of junior standing, he must be in the upper third of his class in general scholastic standing at the time of his election Cfor the current yearjg he must have done superior work in some phase of journalistic or creative endeavor, he must be recommended by the supervisor, or by the committee governing publications 3 he must be approved by the national secretary. Students elected for memberships in the local chapter were chosen from the editorial and business staffs of the Kodak, student year book, and the News, student newspaper, by Miss Vir- ginia Newell and Miss Beda I-land, respective supervisors of the two high school publications. Local members have during the past year achieved merit in their ability to do journalistic work, either in the field of creative writing, or in that of business and advertising management. Since the local chapter has been organized, membership has been construed in the purely honorary sense. In another year, the group wishes to undertake some actual work in the field of journalism and social service to school and to community. Because each chapter is allowed to determine its own activities, work which best fits the particular school may be chosen. 1 ls H1 ,Mis ' x ci 'X I N X.

OIEN Miss HAND The High School News The High School News, a weekly all-school publication, has advanced rapidly in both popu- larity and usefulness, until it now stands high among the leading extra-curricular activities of the school. V The News was started in the old high school by William Steven in 1925. Steven organized the paper, and served as editor for the first year. Eugene Dickerson, the famous wise cracking vaudeville artist, was humor editor on this Erst paper. Steven is now news editor of the Daily Cardinal, student publication at the University of Wisconsin. During the next year, the process of getting settled in the new high school temporarily pushed The News into the background, but last year it was revived by Magne Ager, Leonard Anderson, Richard Brady, and Mancel Mitchell. Ager, and Anderson each served one semester as editor. This year the paper has branched out into another activity, the Quill and Scroll Society. Early in the year The News received a charter from this National Honorary Society, and during the second semester, individual members of the staff who had done outstanding work on the paper, besides maintaining a high scholastic average, were elected to membership, and a local chapter was formed. journalism classes, directed by Miss B. L. Hand and Mr. L. K. Watson, were introduced as an elective course in the regular school curriculum. The News also sent representatives to the State journalism Convention at Madison in No- vember. Those who made the trip were: Miss Beda Hand, Advisor 3 Richard Brady, Editor, and jack Linton, Advertising Manager. The present platform of the News: Athletics for everybody, join the National Honorary Society, establish a printing course in high school. ' Faculty advisors this year were: Miss B. L. Hand, Editorial Advisor, and Mr. H. O. jos- vanger, Business Advisor. 111' H. joHNsoN F. INGALLS MR. JOSVANGER W. HOFFMAN ,Q , t A 3 -. " , - Page One Hundred Thirty Q: f f' if X 1 f -.

BURLINGAME Miss NEWELL The I-listoric Kodak of l929 The past year holds much of historic note for the Kodak. lt has been a year of new problems, 21111 associations, and-ice cream bar sales! As the News so aptly put it, "Freeze a jolly, good e ow! Due to the fact that the book is larger and that there are no ads whatever, the business staff came in for the lion's share of activity, and responded one hundred percent. Money was raised by having mixers, ice cream bar sales, and a Kodak Kamival. This Karnival was the main source of revenue, and was staged two nights in succession. Mr. Watson, Faculty Advisor for the business stahl, most ably planned and directed this event. The various organizations were given concessions and the Kodak shared alike in expenses and profits. The Kodak sent four representatives to the Wisconsin High School Editors' Conference at Madison in November. These representatives were: Mary Ellen Barnes, Editor-in-Chief 3 Mar- garet Poirier, Business Manager, Llora Rowan, Assistant Business Manager, Miss Virginia Newell Faculty Advisor. A contest to obtain the material for the literary section of the book was sponsored by the an- nual. The subject for the contest was material concerning the earl history of Eau Claire and the surrounding country The awards were as follows: first, five dolllarsz second, three dollarsp third, the remaining payment on the Kodak. A . Mr. W. W. Bartlett has been more than generous in helping us with the historic material found in this book.

Over six hundred members were included in its first year. There are eight hundred at present. The purpose of the organization is to encourage school spirit. In carrying out its purpose, the organization has given several large, well attended mixers. The club has sponsored peppy mass meetings, which have led to large attendances at the games, and have encouraged the team to victory. Basketball and football games were advertised on the bulletin boards and at business places in the city. By advertising the games to the public, in- terest has been created in our teams. The first homecoming event the Eau Claire High School has ever celebrated was staged at the time of the River Falls football game. In the evening a parade and snake dance through the main thoroughfares of town ended up at the rear of the high school. Mr. Keller, Mr. Davey, Mr. Hagen, and members of the team spoke. Debate and music as well as athletics have been supported and promoted by the Pep Club. Kenneth Solberg, president of the club, was in charge of the mass meetings, and capably carried them through to the end. At these meetings, members of the teams, the faculty, and the coaciih have spoken. The school songs were sung, yells were given, and selections played by the ban . Officers are elected at the beginning of the first semester, and hold office throughout the entire school year. Vacancies made by graduation are not filled when less than three of the officers graduate. L37 . K. XXX t, ef. -f --.f.i' .. .L 1 -ff? T!

The affair was presided over by Sup- erintendent Paul G. W. Keller. The program was held outside the Northwest end of the building, around the bronze memor- ial tablet which has been placed at that end of the building. The tablet bears the names of the students of Eau Claire High School who lost their lives in the war. It was presented by the jan- uary class of 1927, and was unveiled at this program. Winnifred Bruden, member of the january class of 1927, unveiled the tablet. Mr. M. J. Leinenkugel, president of the board of education, ac- cepted it in behalf of the students, faculty, board of education, and the citizens of Eau Claire. Reverend F. E. Wilson of the Christ Episcopal Church, addressed the gathering. The key- note of his speech was that life is a trust of humanity, and not a possession to be hoarded or squand- ered at will. Reverend A. E. Leonard of the First Congregational Church gave the invocation. At eleven o'clock, all those present tumed toward the east in respect to the dead, and a per- iod of silent thought and respect prevailed for one minute. Besides the students and members of the faculty, the Gold Star Mothers and many of the citizens of Eau Claire attended the program. Page One Hundred Thirty-Seven 2.

He is visiting at his birthplace, his father's farm at Lavick, England, when charming young Lady Gerania Wyn-Charteret is thrown from her horse, and carried into the Wake home. Dr. Wake attends her, but she does not learn his name. Fin- ally, her father and mother, the Earl and Countess of St. Olbyn, take,her away. Dr. Wake and Lady Gerania have fallen in love with each other, however, Lady Gerania's aristocratic parents, ob- ject to the affair because of the doctor's ancestors, who were farmers. Lady Gerania, sticrken with the malady of being in love, sets out to seek advice from the noted Dr. Wake, not knowing he is the young man with whom she has fallen in love. The scene in the consulting room in which Dr. Wake and the young Gerania confront each other was most effectively portrayed. The compli- cated situations which baffle the youthful lovers, until finally the Earl and Countess are reconciled to the love affair, were interpreted with genuine acting by the members of the cast. The leads, taken by Dorothy Burlingame and Albert Bergfeld, were effectively carried. l Humor was lent to the play by several of the characters. The scene in the waiting room in Il, which Mrs. Murdoch, a hen-pecking ,gossipy woman, played by Luora Fleming, first tantalizes . her husband, Leonard Seyberth, and then the Bishop of Selby, George Brunner, was probably the WA funniest in the play. The courtship of janifer and Antony, played by Gladys Garnett and Glenn 1 Lee, was presented in the true English country-side manner. ' x The well selected cast of seventeen produced a piece of work very complimentary to a high 5, , school cast. Miss Anna Warnock coached the play. 7 a Page One Hundred Thirty-Eight N --le-1 S ' ' - A Y--Msg! f t f. .44 V fl,-L56 403' -R, F' 1 1- ' ie" f JQQQ M ' - N l . . f' ' XS Q 1 Ly . 41244 .

The decorations consisted of silver and green streamers, shaded by various colored Hood lights, artistically arranged. The dances, Fifteen in number, were played by the Clearwater Collegians. from a stage set with rose lamps and baskets filled with roses. Donald Rust sang. Punch was served at booths, by four freshmen girls and boys, dressed in silver and green costumes. The traditional Promenade, or Grand March, took place at the end of the seventh dance. This was led by Arthur Nelson, Prom King, and Freda Christensen, Prom Queen, followed by Gwendolyn Bruden and Kenneth Manzg Harold Hanson, Margaret Poirier: and Clyde Hopkins with Bessie Bellows. These couples were followed by the members of the 4A, 4-B, and 3A classes. The song featured for the Grand March was "Sweethearts on Parade." "Two by two they go marching through, The sweethearts on paradeg I can't help sigh as they pass me by, The sweet hearts on parade, I'd love tojoin their fun, but they bar me, For it takes more than one to join their army, How I pine just to fall in line f With the sweethearts on parade."

The Stranger in search of a home finds himself in Mrs Sharpe's rooming and boarding house, occupy- ing a room on the third floor back. He is accepted by the boarders, but makes no particular im- impression, and yet day by day he becomes a more vital part of their lives. Through his unsel- fishness, Miss Kite Finds life less bitter, the cowardly become courageous, the rogues becmoe hon- est. Never does the Stranger seem to assert himself, but because of him eleven people find them- selves, and suddenly discover this world a better place in which to live. No little part of the sussess of this dihfcalt play was d,1e to Mr. Watsorfs excellent coaching. This was his first class play although he has coached many plays in his classes. Due to the mer- its in both coaching and a well chosen cast, "Third Floor Back," was most successfully presented. , Page One Hundred Forty-One R ' Rx 'I .4 r' I t v. - . ffliig-.

Mr. and Mrs. Slater and daughter, Victoria, are talking of their recent bereavement. Grandfather Merriweather has just died, and they are waiting for the arrival of Mrs. Slater's sister, Mrs. jordan, and her husband. The Slaters put some of grandfather's furniture in their downstairs rooms, and are planning on what they will have, and what will go the the other family. Mr. and Mrs. Slater are in the act of moving some furniture when Mr. and Mrs. jordan arrive. Victoria, the daughter, keeps them out until the furniture is settled. Mr. and Mrs. jordan then come in attired in black. Mrs. Slater looks at them and tells them to rest assured that the Slaters' mourning clothes have been ordered. The talk turns to Mr. Merriweather's affairs, and they begin to wonder if his insurance has been paid up-to-date Victoria is told to go to her grandfather's room and get his insurance book. After much protest she goes, but soon comes running back, and says her grandfather is getting up. Everybody is much alarmed when the door opens and Abel Merriweather enters. The people are afraid he will find out that they think he is dead, and some amusing speeches are made. When the grandfather notices Mr. and Mrs. jordan have black clothes on, he inquires the reason and is told that Mr. jordan's brother in Australia died. Next the grandfather notices his furniture, and is very put out. At tea they want to decide who should get his money in case he should suddenly die. He says it will all go to the one with whom he is living at the time of his death His two daughters then start to argue over whom he should live with, but he sur- prises them all, and tells them that he is going to get married the next clay, so he will not live with either of them. ,nf 1 r X fl!

These men have stolen the ruby eye from an idol and are now being pursued . One of them weakens, but the others force him to stick the thing through. A noise is heard and the men are terrified. Three of them hide behind the door and the fourth sits by the table. The door opens slowly, and a priest creeps in. One of the men walks out from behind the door and stabs him. Soon after another priest creeps in, and he is stabbed, a third one creeps in, and he is also stabbed. The four men think they are safe when a queer noise is heard. Again the door opens, and the idol walks in. He walks to the table and picks up his ruby eye Putting it in place he goes out, leaving the men terrified. After he has gone, the men draw a sigh of relief. The idol, outside the inn, calls the name of each of the men, and demands that each one come out. Terrified, the men, as their turn comes, go to their doom. These two plays, "The Dear Departed" and "A Night at an Inn", were given in the high school auditorium, Wednesday, February 27 The occasion was a regular evening meeting of the Parent-Teachers' Association. V Both these plays were worked out as class projects. The "Dear Departed" was prepared in Miss Spencer's class, and "A Night in an Inn" was prepared in Mr. Watson's class, Mrs. George Zachow, President of the State Parent-Teachers' Association, spoke at the same meeting. She was in the city conducting a P. T. A. school, and, after her evening meeting, spoke at the High School P. T.

Special lighting and scenery were constructed for the show which played to a capcaity house. The program was opened with three numbers by the Senior Orchestra-"Where the Shy Little Violets Grow", "The Song l Love", and "How About me." The vocal refrain for the sec- ond number was sung by George McGough. Two southern selections by the boys' quartet, consisting of john Keller, Kenneth Manz, Al- ton Anderson, and Carl Nicholas, were followed by a soft shoe dance given by the boys' chorus, Warner johnson, john Schofield, john Kelley, Westley Hoffman, Milton Grip, jack Linton, Ralph Wylie, and john Borton. A vaudeville skit by Fat Solberg and the inimitable Gene Dickerson was given next. This act was characterized by many funny new gags, a song by "jumbo" and a dance by Gene. Next Warner johnson rendered two piano solos which were followed by a dance number, a chorus of six girl golfers: Carolyn Nielsen, Evelyn King, Gwendolyn Bruden, Olive Bye, Louise Weizenegger, and Margaret R. johnson. Next Mary Jane Williams and Violet Harrington accompanied the Black and Orange Chorus of nine girls with the vocal refrain of "l'll Get By". The following act by Pete and Repeat, Saxophone Whirlwinds, was very humorous and they were encored again and again. This was followed by a grand finale by the orchestra and cast. The song featured was "Where the Shy Little Violets Grow". The '29 Follies were directed by Miss Honora Spencer, and Mr. Emil Sherveyg the Senior Orchestra was directed by Miss Ethel King The production was voted by all of its patrons one of the best, peppiest, snappiest groupings of humorous acts, musical numbers, and novel dances, since the old minstrel days. The cast of sixty was headed by john Kilde who acted as master of ceremonies. The scenic arrangement was very attractive. The orchestra was arranged on a platform, and the dancers carried on their acts below them. Due to the effective setting, the capable di- rection, and the co-operation of the entire cast, the Follies was accepted as the best Senior enter- I tainment in years. if X l ir S .V F' Page One Hundred Forly-Four - -f - -I,f",c' J 1 X li ,, ,it , ff' u9f2ti9ifs' ' R 4 on Q ' -44 ali" The Kodak Karnival The Kodak Karnival, a benefit circus for the High School annual, took place on Friday and Saturday evenings, April 12th and l3th.

Mr. Hagen has drilled his players as thoroughly in the principles of sportsmanship as he has in actual playing. Not only has he worked on the varsity team, but he has spent much time on intra-mural and grade school athletics. Mr. Davey and others who have worked with Mr. Hagen state that it has never been their pleasure to work with a more highly co-operative man, When attending Wendell-Phillipsl-ligh, "Dad" starred in football, basketball, and soccer. When he lgraduated from Wendell-Phillips, he specialized in athletics at the American College of Physical ducation and De Paul. He then secured his first coaching position at West Allis where he turned out many champion- ship ball teams. After one year of coaching at West Allis the war broke out, and Mr. Hagen did excellent work as head of physical education in the division of reconstruction at the Walter Reed General Hospital of Washinton, D. C. Following the war he returned to West Allis where he resumed his duties as head of physical education, and remained there until l925 when he secured a position as head of the athletic de- partment at the American College of Physical Education. From there he came to Eau Claire in September, 1928. Here he turned out an undefeated football team, and a basketball team with a good record. Mr. Hagen is a member of Phi Epsilon Kappa, a national honorary physical ed- ucation fraternity. june l, Mr. Hagen will return for the third time to West Allis where he will occupy a position as Director of Physical Education and Community Recreation. It is with genuine regret that Eau Claire in general, and the high school in particular, loses Mr. Hagen. ,I ..- : -X, , . . :xg 4 .

P ' ' I 1 ix N I I 1 'l' . R . X Q MR. ALFRED POI-IL FACULTY MANAGER OF ATHLETICS l Mr. Pohl, as Faculty Manager of Athletics in the high school, completed his fourth success- ful year. During each of the years in which Mr. Pohl has acted as financial manager, athletics in the school have shown a profit, that of the past year being the greatest of the four. ln his capacity as Faculty Manager, Mr. Pohl has innumerable duties to attend to. He ar- ranges for transportation to and from these games which are played out of town. One of his most perplexing duties is the sale of tickets, and in this line he has developed a highly proficient reserved seat system in addition to the regular seat sales. In addition to these specific duties, Mr. Pohl is called upon to attend to those innumerable financial difficulties which are constantly arising in athletics everywhere. Whereas Mr. Pohl does not come into the public eye frequently, the importance of his posi- tion can be easily seen when we realize that without funds, athletics must either die out entirely, or be dependent on the business men of the town, and neither of these alternatives make for a high team morale. ln this way Mr. Pohl has really done a great deal for high school athletics by putting it on its feet financially at the expense of a good deal of time and energy. These duties are carried on voluntarily in addition to Mr. Pohl's regular work as insrtuctor in Manual Arts. This position offers no pay and Mr. Pohl does this work only because he is willing to do a little more than his duty to the school. Eau Claire High School should consider itself indeed fortunate to have such an able and willing Athletic Manager as Mr. Pohl.

NN - l X xcx XIHNX THE WAusAU GAME The first game of the season was opened with Owen here September 22. Hagen's greenies played straight football, and easily came through on the long end of an I8-0 count. Owen never threatened the Purple goal, but the fray was uninteresting, although critics saw hopes for the Hilldwellers. Derouin was the light of the game, proving effective on end runs, New Richmond proved to be the next victims of the Eau Claire squad. This game was much much like the first in that it lacked excitement, with the exception of a 40 yard jaunt by Derouin in the last quarter after he had taken a stray Orange pass from out of the air. The final tally gave Eau Claire the battle by a 12-O score. What was perhaps the greatest battle of the season, comparing it to last year's 6-0 victory over Hibbing, took place when the Hill-dwellers sneaked out a 7-0 win over the powerful Wausau Lum- beriacks, leading in the Wisconsin river conference. Wausau started out to romp all over the Purple defense and to threaten the Eau Claire goal time after time. But everyone remembers how the Purple came back in the last half to play the Red to a standstill, and then with Finn and Donaldson featuring to put the ball over the Lumberjacks' last marker just before the battle ended. Derouin booted the ball over to gain the extra point. Eau Claire at Menomonie resulted in another Purple victory. At the end of the game, the Purple stood 18 up on the Red and Black of Eau Claire's neighboring city after mud baths had caused a little discomfort due to cold. The entire Hilldweller line played real ball, while Derouin and Hopkins featured with their work in the backfield. l . ff : 4'-'.?ll l i , 1 ,ft - 5, ,ff by " UZ' Page One Hundred Fifty-Four f--f A13 1' "er, ,ff' 3 L fi jak? in .il . .I I I -XX , . i 9 41-59 ' if so ' M 4 i I I ,J I I x ,fax IX A 'li ef A . 1 Jfwfffff ' gy In 3- 417 'IN . . . ,. - 'J S- rf- gg L . . ,I A 5 I -.

The incident aroused the big tackle, and he, assisted by the rest of the fellows, proceeded to soundly drub the visitors 24-6. The out- standing players were Captain Miley, Howie Miller, and Clarence Finn. LaCrosse was the game where Eau Claire sure did bring home the bacon, so to speak, with a 45-l7 score. Miller, at two different times, galloped through the entire Red and Black outfit for a 55 yard jaunt, and later a 75 yard run which left the LaCrosse boys so far behind that they be- came lonesome. Finn played his usual excellent game, following the ball all of the time, scoring one touchdown, and getting the largest share of the tackles. River Falls proved to be a real homecoming victory with lots of racket. All Purple fans were out to see the game with the undefeated River Falls team. Mike Miley and his gang gave the Purple fans a real treat by sending the Falls home on the short position of a 27-6 tally. Finn, Miller, Newton, and Miley starred. The last battle was with the highly praised Chippewa team. Dope before had favored the up-river team, and the whole city of Chippewa was sure that Eau Claire didn't have a chance. But the score 13-0 with Chippewa having the O. was a big surprise fro Chippewal, while the mighty Schwartz was completely stopped, and the Purple ended the season without a defeat.

He was a fine tackler, dependable pass receiver, and a spectacular runner. Paddy often upset opposing teams by circling and taking the ball from one of the halves for a long gain. Finn was placed on the all-district team. This was his last year. CHARLES, "CHUCK," KEPLER played a great game at guard, and starred at breaking through many fumbles. He scored one of Eau Claire's touchdowns by picking up a Chippewa fumble and carrying it over the line. Kepler set an excellent example to his teammates by his strict ad- herence to training, and by his clean, sportsmanlike attitude at all times. He, too, is lost to the 1929 team by graduation. HOWARD, .'HOWlE," MILLER was one of Eau Claire's greatest ground gainers because of his elusive style. Even after he was hit, Howie could squirm for three or four yards more. Howie showed up especially well toward the close of the season, making the all-district team at half. ln- stead of being hampered by his size, he turned it to his advantage by making himself a smaller target. Howie was Eau Claire's best open field runner. He will be back next year.

Mike starred both in his excellent play at guard, and by the excellent example he set his men through his pep and fighting spirit. Mike outplayed every guard who faced him, and was named Captain of the News' all-district team, Mike graduated in january. GLEN, "Buzz," DEROUIN, like Miller, was a shifty, elusive runner exceedingly hard to hit. Derouin was especially effective when protected by interference, moving slowly until he saw an opening, and then breaking through for a long gain. .I-le was one of Eau Claire's contribution to the all-district team as half back, and undoubtedly deserved the honor. Buzz graduated in january. JAMES, "JIMMY," DONALDSON, due to heavy competition, was confined to substitute half, but as he has another year he will most likely be a regular on the 1929 eleven. When he did play he sahowed himself to be a flashy runner. his outstanding feat being a sixty-five yard run for a touch- own.

"FAT" "YOURADA" DANIEL, ..DAN, ' NEWTON proved. through his hard tackling and efficient blocking, to be one of Eau Claire's outstanclinfg players. He often broke through the opposing line to nail the runner for a loss, and was one o the ew tackles seen in Eau Claire who was able to get down on the punt- receiver . Dan has another year of football, and should be an extremely valuable man in Eau Claire's 1929 team. .W1LLiAM, "FAT," GOETHEL at center, was noteworthy chiefly because of his excellent passing. Such a dependable center' gives confidence to a backfield. By saving that fraction of a second necessary for reaching for a poor pass. he enables his offense to get started. Goethel also proved to be a star at defensive play. I-Ie will be back again next season, and in all probability will hold center position on Eau Claire's next eleven. GEORGE, "YouRoA," WARD, for the First half ,of the season, fought for the center position with Goethel, but soon proved himself a natural guard. Here he was shown as a strong link in Eau Claire's impregnable line. No offense was able to gain much yardage through his position. Your- da will graduate in june. ff I ' i-J ,yf A Page One Hundred , Fifty-Eight ' 1 A WX I ' Qi yx Mm 'lib -r ff. .

RALPH, t'KUHLMAN," KUHLMAN showed up well at guard because of his hard. clean play. His tackling and blocking were ecxellent. Kuhlman was one of the outstanding linemen in every game he played. He will be back next year, and will undoubtedly secure a regular berth. ARTHUR, t'ART,'- NELSON, alternating with Captain-Elect Hopkins at full, was an exceedingly valuable man due to the fact that he oould be called uopn with reasonable surety when a yard or two were needed for a first down. Nelson was also an excellent tackle and a fine blocker. This was his last year, i gi Page One Hundred Fifty-Nine vi xg' v-S l H I' x Q.. 2.1 Y .4 X I 42'--. 1 lift T Q' .gs dl?

He always chose the right play at the right time, sending the other backs through the enemy's weak points for long gains. As a safety man, Dave's tackling was ex- cellent, and for sheer grit he was excelled by none on the team. His loss by graduation will be felt by the 1929 team. CLYDE, "I-IoPPiE," HOPKINS, strength is shown by the fact that his teammates selected him to lead them as captain in the 1929 season. Hoppie starred as a line plunger as well as a great de- fensive man, and should make a great leader. Hopkins was one of the outstanding full-backs seen in Eau Claire. and very likely will be one of the stars of the state. l rl ,f' f 'X -4' ' ' I V' 1' X A fV4 f '. if rf' aj A I ,.Q:f?V.i Q Page One Hundred Sixty X , 'ffl Cf' ' .f ' -we v. - N515 ,5 J -ji, ve - w'a,a,a we '. frfifgg' f ' -x'1i'l-1 ff F25 P' 'W .-I ak! , A" ns lr ' 12413 . f-c51,,:.f K., -fbi?

The prospects for an excellent team seemed good at this time, espe- cially as two of the new men, Stanton and Bunce. showed up well, each making six points. Ulry was the leading scorer with nine points, and Captain jarvar was a close second with eight. Despite their pluck and fight, Arcadia was thoroughly outclassed. On December 21, Coach Hagen's men added a second, and much harder fought, victory to their record by beating the strong Barron five 28-15. Barron put up an exceptionally strong team on the floor, and succeeded in holding Eau Claire almost to a standstill for three quarters. In the last quarter, however, Eau Claire's offense began to function, and during this period the Purple had things pretty much their own way. Ulry again led in the scoring, this time making 14 points, and jarvar again was second with seven. Eau Claire managed to pile up a slight lead in the first half by making free throws as the Barron guards held them to one goal from the field. The half ended with the score 7-4 in favor of Eau Claire. Two games with Marshfield and Wausau respectively were scheduled for january 4 and 5. However, due to an inHuenza epidemic in Marshfield, that game was cancelled, and Eau Claire played only the Wausau game. Here the Purple met their first defeat by a score of 23-13. For the first half, Eau Claire managed to keep the score close, but toward the close of the game, Wausau began to make bas- kets from beyond the middle of the floor, and against this type of game Eau Claire's zone of de- fense was helpless. ln this game, the first against a major opponent, both Eau Claire's offense and defense were weak, and it was only through the use of numerous substitutes that Eau Claire managed to stay as close as she did. "Paddy" Finn led the scoring with two field goals and three free throws for a total of seven points. Menomonie came to Eau Claire on january 11, and took a heartbreaking game from the Pur- ple by the close score of 20-19. This without doubt was the hardest game to lose on the entire schedule. Leading to the last minutes of play, Eau Claire was overwhelmed by a despairing Menornonie rally which succeeded only after it had appeared that Eau Claire was to be a certain winner. In the first quarter, Eau Claire went out to an eight to two lead. ln the second quarter, however, Menomonie came back to tie the score at nine all at half time. At the beginning of the second half, Eau Claire's offense once more began to function, and she obtained an apparently commanding lead. Menomonie, however, began to substitute freely, and managed to pull ahead and gain a one-point victory. Captain jarvar led the Purple team both in scoring and in all-around playing. He accounted for eight of Eau C1aire's points on four field goals. Notre Dame of Chippewa Falls came to Eau Claire for a mid-week game, and went down by the overwhelming score of 35-22. Eau Claire once more appeared to be a team of outstanding promise, especially on the defensive. The Notre Dame forwards seldom were able to get through for short shots. Coach Hagen used numerous substitutes in this game, some of whom showed .ilk ,J X up well. Stanton was high scorer with eleven points. D ln the first game after the loss of Ulry, E inn, and Luebkeman, and before the acquisition of Clark, Eau Claire met her third defeat by losing to La Crosse 22-7. Eau Claire was clearly out- outclassed in every department except spirit. The La Crosse offense had no trouble in getting . 'A the ball under Eau C1aire's basket, and at the same time their defense held the Purple to three J field goals, two of which went to Captain -Iarvar. -- fy I A - l l V' Page One Hundred Sixty-Four X -- -T j L--at 1,3 - 'll P 1 1' 'V il? f .

Strengthened by the addition of Miller, Clark, and johnson, Eau Claire appeared to have a rejuvenated team, winning Z1-19. Eau Claire got off to an early lead, but Chippewa rallied with the withdrawal of Miller on four personal fouls, and managed to tie the score with only a minute left to play. Everson, however, worked free to take a long pass and sink an easy goal. ln this game Eau Claire showed remarkable strength, especially in the guard positions where Clark and Miller proved their rights to varsity positions. On February 8, Eau Claire added another victory to their record, and in some measure avenged themselves for their early season defeat by winning from Menomonie 19-18. For three quarters Eau Claire seemed to have lost all their snap acquired in the Chippewa game, and at the end of the third period appeared to be hopelessly behind. In the first half of the Final quarter they improved somewhat, but trailed 17-10 with four minutes to play. Strengthened by substi- tutions, the Purple's offense began to function, and with two minutes left to play they trailed by one point. Clark put the ball through from the center and jarvar added a free-throw. Menom- onie get a free-throw, and Eau Claire stalled the rest of the game to take a well earned victory, February 15, LaCrosse came to Eau Claire with expectations of another easy victory. Due to a third quarter offensive they managed to win, but at no time was Eau Claire outclassed. For the first half the two teams played on even terms, the period ending 7-7. ln the third quart- er, however, LaCrosse added eight points to Eau Claire's none, and led at the end of the third period 15-7 . ln the final period the Purple came back to clearly outplay LaCrosse, but they were unable to overcome l.aCrosse's lead, and lost 22-16. The play of Clark and Miller featured the game. A week later Eau Claire journeyed to Chippewa to meet the Cardinal team. For the first half Eau Claire played great ball, piling up a 14-7 lead at half. At the middle of the third quarter this lead had been increased to 18-9. At this point, however, Eau Claire suddenly let down, and Chippewa pulled up for a 26-Z2 win. jarvar and Miller were the outstanding players for Eau Claire. Miller time and again snatched passes out of the Chippewa players' hands to start Eau Claire offensives. Cn March 2 the hopes of the Purple rooters were revived when Eau Claire romped to an easy win over the strong Marshfield team by a score of 34-15. jarvar was by far the outstanding man on the Hoor, caging 10 field goals and one free throw for a total of 21 points. - In this game the team played as smooth and powerful a brand of ball as any which was displayed bathe 1926 state championship team. Coach Hagen filled his final weak position when he moved urk from guard to forward, Numerous substitutions were made for Eau Claire, but even under these con- ditions Eau Claire completely outplayed the Eastern team. l In the final game of the regular season, Eau Claire won over the previously undefeated Wau- , 5 N sau team to the tune of Z3-21. The margin of victory would undoubtedly have been larger but ' r for the fact that Miller was removed on personal fouls in the middle of the third quarter. At the , , ' " time Eau Claire had a seven point lead, but with the removal of this obstacle Wausau's offensive ' P' ' began to spurt and threaten Eau Claire's lead. jarvar led the scoring with 10 points, while Mil- W ler did by far the best floor work. ln this game the Purple established themselves as one of the Q leading contenders for the state title, as previous to this game it was conceded that the champion- 9 ' X ship lay between Wausau, LaCrosse, and Madison Central. Eau Claire did not place in the state fr ig' tournament this year. .

' WAYNE, '-CLARKlE," CLARK'S excellent defensive work was another reason for Eau Claire's spurt during the latter part of the season. Against Menomonie, Clark outplayed Stori who is considered to be one of the best players in the state. Clark was also named on the all-district team as guard. He will be back next year. HOWARD, "How1E," MILLER, at guard, was a star both on offense and defensive play. It was chiefly through his long shots that Eau Claire managed to defeat Chippewa in the final game of the district tournament. Howie's speed enabled him to guard two or even three men, and then start an Eau Claire offensive that was likely to end in a goal. Miller was named an all-district guard.

Turk was an excellent dribbler and a dead shot under the basket. . He also played a stellar defensive game. Turk will return next season, and undoubtedly will be a great asset to the 1930 team. CAPTAIN HAROLD ,IARVAR was perhaps the Purple's outstanding pla er as far as offensive play is concerned. Because of his great shooting ability he was able to ami! many valuable points to the Eau Claire total. His outstanding feat was in scoring ten goals and one free throw for a total of twenty-one points against Marshfield. jarvar was named on the all-district team. He will graduate next january.

In those games in which he played he showed that he is an excellent dribbler, a good passer, and a fine defensive player. jimmy should be one of the stars on next year's team.

IQNEELINGZ Arthur Hanstrom. The Cheer Leaders The cheer leaders of Eau Claire High School have done much in the past year to arouse en- thusiasm throughout the student body for the various athletic teams. All of the cheer leaders have spent a good deal of time and effort in order to raise the morale of the athletes. The position of the cheer leader is an important one in any school, for upon his or her capa- bilities rests the responsibility of bringing the student body out to support the team. It is up to the cheer leaders to get their fellow students interested, or worked up, for when there is an ex- cited student body there is usually a successful team. All of Eau Claire Highs cheer leaders have been full of pep. and their energy is to a great ex- tent responsible for Eau Claire's undefeated football team and district championship basketball team. In the early part of the year a contest was held to determine who should represent the school as cheer leaders. A large number of contestants turned out, and from about thirty try-outs the following six were chosen: Art Hanstrom, firstg Beth Lindberg, secondg David Shirley, thirdg Bob Boyd, fourthg Geraldine Peterson, Hfthg and Ark Kohnen, sixth. They are all underclassmen, and so the school can expect a highly developed cheering department for next season. "Hit 'em high, Hit 'em low, Eau Claire-1et's go!

L -7 iv! bf 3 it v. st X A MR. JEAN CHAPMAN MR. EVERETTE BLETHEN Director lntra-Mural Athletics Assistant Director Intra-Mural Athletics ' Believing that lntra-Mural Athletics should be organized in the Eau Claire High School, the administration four years ago ordered considerable football equipiment as the Hrst step in that direction. Two teachers were put in charge of this department, teams were organized, and a series of games were played. The most serious obstacle in the lntra-Mural football program was, and still is, a suitable place to play. Carson Park has been the place used. The grounds there are fine. and the school appreciates the use of them. However, the Park is too far from the high school building. A walk from the school to Carson park and back in addition to an afternoons practice is too much for most any boy, even the most ambitious. Oftentimes the grade schools practice there, in which case one of the Intra-Mural teams must remain idle or is hampered in their ractice. This year after much thought and consideration it was decided to abandifmn the old methods of handling Intra-Mural football. It was believed that if more time could be spent in coaching, and fewer ames be played, the boys would derive more benefit and learn more about the game. Considerable new equipment was purchased, and together with that already on hand, there was enough to equip 30 players. As 60 candidates reported for practice, it was necessary to make an adjustment. lt was decided to divide the squad into two groups. One group, called the light- weight division, included all freshmen and boys under 125 pounds. The heavyweight division or second group, included all fellows too large for the lightweight division. The equipment was first issued to the lightweight group for a few weeks. They practiced daily, and played several games. An attempt was made to give them the fundamentals of football, a few simple plays, and instill in them the love of the game, and the spirit of good sportsmanship. Early in October the e uipment was issued to the heavyweight group who practiced daily from then on until the end off the season. The same principles were kept in mind in handling them as in handling the lightweight group. As they often scrimmaged the First team, it was possible to give them con- siderable playing under fire. Immediately after Thanksigving the boys organized their own teams for the Intra-Mural Basketball Tournament. As some of the boys were backward in organizing their teams. their names were taken, and teams were organized for them by the lntra-Mural coaches. The Intra-Mural teams were divided into two classes. The Big Five included five teams of the older and more experienced players, and the Big Ten consisted of the younger and smaller fel- lows. Each team in the Big Ten was named after some Big Ten team. The Big Five consisted of New York, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and Pittsburg. The I5 teams included l05 players. A schedule of 65 games was drawn up, each team playing at least eight games. E The games were begun in December, were played at noon, and were completed March ll. Because of the District Tournament, the games had to be completed early, which necessitated the playing of double headers for several weeks. This was done without shortening the length of the games to any great extent. Page One Hundred Seventy-One fjfgxix lik 1 . , 1 .A i 4"'. , N fix pq ,M X, I La"" lv, --- -'L :F- '.

A The lightweight group was issued the equipment first, and practice began at Carson Park. 'l The squad was first given the fundamentals of football with particular emphasis upon tackling X' and blocking. After two weeks of practice, the team was taken to Stanley to play the junior High School team of that city. The boys conducted themselves creditably and played a good game of football. Stanley won the game 6-0. Tauger and Laursen starred in the line that day, stopping a large percentage of Stanley's plays. Hansen and Waller in the backfield displayed some real broken field running. Q The second game on the lightweights' schedule was a return game with Stanley to be played in Eau Claire. Due to weather conditions it was neceassry to cancel the game. " l After two more weeks of practice. a game was scheduled with the team from St. Patricks School. This was the second and final game for the lightweights. The team gained lots of ground that day and were strong defensively. However, too many penalties and a couple of poor passes gave St. Patrick's two points scored on a safety. That was all of the scoring for that da and St. Patrick's won 2-0. Tauger and Quigg at ends played especially well. They not only broke up a majority of the plays attempted by St. Patricks, but were down the field fast on punts and rarely gave the safety man a chance to return them. Lind, Walters, Hansen, and Woodford played good football in the backfield. Woodford at full-back backed up the line on defense like a veteran, and on the offense plunged through the opposing line for many good gains, He was nearly always good for from 2 to 5 yards. The following played on the lightweight team: Edwin Lasseck, Harley Brook, Emmett Cha- put, Edward Laursen, Dean Curtis, Herbert Woodford, Harry Larson, John Walters, Thomas Mackove, Robert Lund, Stanley Tauger, james Hendrickson, Clarence Nelson, Harold Lind, Ver- non Alvestad, Delos Walker, Robert Larson, Clarence Hansen, Clare Jennings, Francis Quigg, and Harold Anderson. ' ' The heavyweight team began their practice about the middle of October. A squad of about twenty-five players reported, and they displayed lots of pep in practice. Their first game was played at Augusta, two weeks after practice began. The boys were outclassed by Augusta, and they lost by a score of 13-2. This might have been due in part to the absence of one of the star players. Clark and Dinkel were the stars in this game. Clark at end was responsible for stopaingla great many plays attempted by Augusta, while Dinkel at full-back backed up the line exce ent y. The second and final game by the heavyweights was a return game with Augusta on the home field. They were again victorious by the score of 6-0, Scoring in the second half after picking upa fumbled ball and racing 50 yards to a touchdoyim. The team gained consistently against Au- usgta. They were in scoring distance three times, but could not put the ball across. The need of someone who could pass checked the teams scoring power. West was the ground-gainer in that game, gaining from 3-4 yards on a play. This was made possible largely through thework of Clark and Dinkel, Most of the playing done by the heavyweights was against the high school team. This was especially true at the end of the season, when they played them nearly every night for some time before the Chippewa game. The lntra-Murals gave the High School some real battles and were never badl outclassed. During these practice sessions, the work of Clark and West at ends, and Dinkel at flxll-back was outstanding. They perhaps made seventy-five percent of the tackles alone, and caused the opposing team all kinds of trouble. johnson and Walker at the tackles, Tauger at end, and Hotchkiss in the backfield were also outstanding players. The whole team deserves a lot of credit for going out and playing a team-physically larger and stronger, simply for the love of the game and the desire to be of as much service to the first team as possible. The heavyweight team was composed of the following players: Laverne Hotchkiss, Robert Dinkel, Anton Woodroski, Wayne Clark, Kenneth West, James Hendrickson, Stanley Welsh, Edward Larson, Harold johnson, Emmett Chaput, Stanley Tauger, Thomas Mackove, William Mackove Julius Dinger Harold Ginder Hugh Chambers Ralph Fried Vernon Alvestad, Ralph Nelson and Clarence Hansen Page One Hundred Seventy-Three A Ei!-f r'7 ,B , , , , , 'ilfx ' Y 4 -N -- 1- T.

The lightweight squad at first did not look so good, as the players were small and most of them inexperienced. However, they stuck together well, and as a rule were on hand to play all of their games. After the first few games, the fellows began to handle themselves better and signs of a little team work could be seen. As a rule the scores were not high, but occasionally someone went on a scoring spree. For example, Harry Brown, playing for Wisconsin, showed a good eye for the basket, and in one of the early games scored six field goals alone. Illinois, the champions of the lightweight division, had a good team which played consistent- ly. Dexter, Derouin, Captain Myers, Tomashek, Walker, and Cort displayed good team work and made Illinois the strongest team in the division. Competition in the heavy-weight division was not quite as strong as in the light-weight divi- sion. However, Pittsburg gave Harvard, the Champions, a couple of good games, being defeat- ed by one point in an over-time period in both cases. From these two teams a team was picked which played several out of town teams. This All Intra-Mural team consisted of Wylie, Hendrick- son, Alvestad, Lind, and Southworth. Subs were Turk, Hansen, Losby. This team p l a y e d the second team early in the year, and were defeated 34-18. The first half they were clearly out- classed, but they came back in the second half, and gave the second team a good game. A little later this All Intra-Mural team went to Chippewa and defeated the junior high school team of that city 23-12. The All-Americans' last game was played in Eau Claire with the Menomonie Scouts. West was added to the team at that time, and they played a great game against Menom- onie. Menomonie overcame an early lead, and the last quarter saw each team leading in the f I scoring four times. When the gun went off, however, Menomonie was in the lead 23-22. I Hendrickson and Southworth were promoted to the second team where they made a credit- "' ' xg able showing, and the others should show up equally as well on next year's high school squad.

She is a grad- uate of Beloit College, and had been the physical education director at'I-Iastings College, Hastings, Nebraska for two years previous to her coming here. Her home is in Quincy, Illinois. Unfortunately, Miss Oakley was taken ill three weeks after school opened, and was absent for two weeks. She had the work in her department well started. however, and it was a simple matter for her substitute to carry on her work until she was able to return. Aside from the regular gymnasium work, which consists of formal and informal gymnastics, games, apparatus work and dancing, an inter-class girls' basket ball tournament was held in the early spring, with the sophomores the victors. Three folk dances were learned for Gym Night, which was given on April 19. Miss Oakley had full charge of the tournament which was deemed a success by all participating, and she also taught the girls the dances. The Girls' Athletic Association was in the process of reorganization when Miss Oakley be- came ill again, and most likely nothing will be done about it until next year. The aim of the physical education department this year has been to give the girls physical training and guidance which will help them to become better young women physically and ment- ally. Corrective exercises have been given rather than strenuous exercisesg simple dances t0 develop a sense of rhythm and gracefulness, rather than fancy, intricate stepsg and games that gave everyone a chance to participate, rather than the games for the few who are naturally athletically inclined. Tennis was played in the gymnasium by many of the girls during the eighth period, and played L after school the last few weeks of the year. Many girls learned enough about the game to be able .fk to enjoy it on out-door courts this coming summer. ' Looking back over the girls' physical education of the year, it can be called a success in spite TF of the fact that the school was unfortunate enough to have to do without Miss Oakley's services for eighteen weeks of the year. This was largely due to the efficiency of Miss Lorraine Jost who j substituted for Miss Oakley during her absence. f l 'fx k f gt ,, , l Page One Hundred Seventy-Five ,,, J 1, .., . ...f .X 459 75 'K " C A 1 1 F .

Nr N X x ,xx 1 YN, --AQL2' Swimming Swimming is one sport that apparently does not interest the majority, or attract the atten- tion of the general public as do those activities connected with basketball or footballg yet it is surprising the number of students that actually take part in and enjoy the swimming class as promoted in the only indoor pool in the city at the Y. M. C. A. Swimming, of course, does not require the same team work as above mentioned sports, as its value is in the development of individ- ual effort. Many fail in their progress as advanced swimmers because of the great amount of individual effort and practice necessary for record breaking. Of the students participating in swimming activities the following have made marked suc- cess through their efforts. For one who has spent many an hour in not only developing his own ability, but voluntarily promoting swimming for others, great success has been evident for Tom Moehle who has the following records to his cerdit: 1925-lst 50 yard Back' Stroke Y. M. C. A. State Championship-Janesville, 36 seconds. 1927-3 rd 100 yard Back Stroke Y. M. C. A. National Championship-Minneapolis, l minute 15 seconds. -2nd 100 yard Back Stroke Y. M. C.

He won the City Class "A" championship cup in a walk- away. l-le has natural ability, and, if he trains and pits himeslf against good swimmers for ex- perience, he may do things. ' Ronnie Converse and Harley Brook won the "C" and "B" cups last year respectively. They are young at this game, and if they keep at it, they are sure to improve and make marks for them- seives some day.

The men sit tall and straight before the doors of their clean, new x N wigwams, watching their squaws prepare the evening meal. Their wisps of smoke curl lazily up XXX from busy fires, giving this Ojibway village an air of peace and quiet. Two young braves approach the camp from different sides. For five days they have been fasting and praying in the depths of the forest. They have come back to tell of the wonderful visions and adventures they have had. The Hrst to reach the center of the village is Bald-Eagle, son of the Chief. His spirit is as broken as his body, for he has no wonderful visions or advent- ures to report. The Great Spirit has not favored him because he prayed for peace and plenty among the nations, instead of for greater skill in hunting and fishing. Red-Fox, the other brave, comes swaggering into camp filled with glorious tales. 'He has seen his vision, for he prayed for greater skill in battle, and the Great Spirit seems to favor warriors. As Bald-Eagle makes his painful way to his humble wigwam the people clamor about Red-Fox and claim him for a great hero. ' Finally the squaws return to their pots and the meal is served. Bald-Eagle had no squaw to cook for him, and tonight he has only dry venison and parched corn to quell his fearful appetite. As he eats, he looks at the great red sun, and his heart swells for the First time in many days. He forgets the harsh, material world about him, and thinks angel-like thoughts about nothing. He He is brought to his senses again by many fierce yells, and he sees a band of half-naked red-men rush upon the village. The Dacotahs are on the war path. II The robin, Opechee, sits on a branch near his nest and sings tones sweet and tender. He is very joyous and proud today, for now there are three more wide mouths to feed, and he enjoys nothing more than to feed them. And so he is intensely happy, and he sings to the wide peaceful world, to his beautiful mate, and to his secreted house. The last rays of the western sun shine, and are refleced from his many colored feathers. He ruffles them like a small bo lifting his chest, and his song becomes even bolder. Suddenly his joyful notes are cut short by loud and giglitfuql noises. He sees Indians moving beneath him, their painted bodies glistening in the am- er ig t. ' lll A long line of dusky braves moves steadily onward, away from the setting sun. Wahonowin or Big-Horse, knows, as he fingers his huge yellow painted tomahawk, that they will soon come upon the camp of the detested Ojibways. Then he will be able to avenge his father, whose scalp some Ojibway brave proudly exhibits. Tomorrow he will be well on his journey homeward, loaded down with many scalps and much booty. Scalps to please a dark eyed maiden far behind him, booty to purchase her from her father. And if he is very lucky he might have a large, pain- less scar to show to the others. Now he grows quiet and tense, for the camp is just ahead. He grips his yellow weapon tightly and rushes forward, yelling even harder' than the rest. H iv - Nahma, the sturgeon, scraped his underside lazily upon the bottom of the river. His was a happ and contented life, and he waved his fins and tail luxuriously in the red tinted water, col- ored by the setting sun. Here, opposite the village of his friends, the Ojibways, he found peace and security. He was here all alone, for not even the spider-like craw-fish, or the yellow perch had yet entered into this pleasant sanctuary. A Hy lit on the surface above him. Cautiously he approached it, and thus with a rush he broke water, the H safe in his mouth. But the sight he saw beyond the bank of the river caused that dainty morsell to be swallowed-untasted. His tall red friends from the north were being attacked by their enemies! Men were struggling everywhere. Now some came splashing about near him, which caused him to descend to a greater depth, far, far away from that bloody world v above him. l , 4 Il' ll .'Ml"" li if 'T T .' S ,A ig 1 fi 1 . .... .

He was not a war- riorg he was a peacemaker among the nations. Never had he loved hunting or fishing, he had loved only talks with wild animals and the harvest time. But now he was as mad as the rest, eager to kill and maul all within reach. Truly, a great change had come over Bald-Eagle. It caused an agreeable sensation to run rapidly up and down his spine, and it made his heart beat louder than a torn-tom. He might be mad, and he might even be a warriorg whatever he might be, he did enjoy being such. He laughed crazedly as he felt his crude weapon sink into the skull of an unfortunate adver- sary. Here his attention was drawn to one of the enemy, a bull-moose of a man, who stood still and slew the Ojibways one by one, as they advanced. He was shouting, "Revenge! Revenge!" in his loudest tone with each sweep of his large, yellow tomahawk. Bald-Eagle saw Red-Fox, his friend, advance to meet this strange warrior. He forgot all by-gone taunts and laughs as he sprang forward to help his fellow tribesman. But Bald-Eagle was too late. Red-Fox was dead with a gaping hole between the eyes before he could swing his own weapon upon the Dacotah, who died clutching tightly his yellow tomahawk, and still murmuring "Revenge! Revenge!" A wounded Dacotah, on his knees, pushed up a bow and an arrow, and using every last bit of energy, pulled the bow-string far back before letting it fly. The arrow, missing its mark, sped from sight amongst the foliage of a nearby oak-a wasted effort. But it did not stop as soon as it entered between the green leaves, it sped swiftly on, until it struck a nest filled with three gawky open-mouthed, baby birds, all of which toppled to the ground. Nahma, the sturgeon, knew that the waters were no longer tinted by the setting sun, but by the blood of many men. As he neared the surface he saw no sign of a living persong they seemed all to have been swallowed up by the dark and bloody waters of the river. He turned, and moved slowly up the sluggish current, searching for a spot where the waters were tinted only by the last long, brilliant, rays of a setting sun.

And yet he knew a number of stories and some of them were lively talis. That they were true or untrue had nothing to do with their interest. Besides, he told them we . His name was john Crawford and his father had been the joe Crawford who had fought in N X the Pampino Rebellion during the time when Paul Bunyan was first heralded into the world as a I N X supreme fighter and woodsman. He had known of Paul when he first became a Real American by crossing the border line from Canada to the United States. He was one of the men who had worked for Paul during the time when john johnson was foreman. Crawford was old, astonish- ingly old. His face was one that had seen many days and many, many nights. He smoked con- stantly, and spat professionally. His slow deliberation defied anyone to question his tales. We were sitting on the Court House steps. He leaned against the wall as he related the story, and coming from him it took on an air of truth which the printed words, without his atmosphere, somewhat belie. "It was just after the big windstorm. And let me tell you, young feller, Big Ole, Paul's foreman, had to chain down the logs in the fireplace with big logging chains to stop the logs from being sucked up the chimney. Yes, sir!" He looked pensively into the Court House Square before continuing, "Paul and Big Ole had just gone and left their office to see Babe, the Blue Ox, who measured forty-two axe handles and a plug of chewing tobacco between the horns. Now Big Ole doubted Babe's strength and dared Paul to test the ox. Ole was a good fellow, see, but he was always questioning things. Anyway, Ole bet the young pine tree he brushed his beard with, against the gross or so of new axes Paul had in his hip pocket, that Babe couldn't make a certain leap one-footed. Paul grunted, took up the bet, and they proceeded to carry it out. There was no stopping Paul, lads." A few emphatic puffs on his corn cob pipe sent spirals of grey smoke to break against the blue grey of the Court House walls. Then the old man went on with his tale. "The place where Babe's one foot rested is the spot where the Sacred Heart Hospital now stands, The ox was to jump to Lake View Cemetery Hill and was to land on one foot and one foot only, see. Babe followed Paul's instructions and gave a valiant leap which dislodged the ground from which he jumped and left a ridge around the middle of the hill. That's where the Omaha tracks run now, you know. But Babe didn't have such a good time in the air. A whirlwind caught him and twisted him round and up. Get me? It was a big wind, you bet. Now Babe had a very gallant mind for an ox and right away shut off the temptation to light on four feet. He could have done this, of course, if he'd wanted to. It would have made easier lighting. But he showed his mettle, blue steel, by cracky, and lit on one foot and the new-shod hoof made a big dent in the ground. Presto, Half Moon Lake! And I'll have a spitting match with any of you young bucks to prove it." ' As all of us "young bucks" seemed uninclined to have a spitting macth with him, the old man took out his pipe, relit it, and after getting it well settled in his rotting teeth, began another story. "It was seven years after the winter of the Blue Snow that Paul made his camp near Eau Claire for the second time. He had made up his mind to log the land along the Chippewa river, so he hitched up Babe to the bunk houses that were on skids. Then with a swish of a young pine tree in Pauls hand, away they went so fast that the fl '3 men had to hold their breath and keep their mouths closed ,fi - for fear of losing their hearts. ,i-'.

""" l fl -5171 .XC :Vi QQ began to plow the ground down the river bank toward where Eau Claire stands now. And I know it for the truth. After he had turned over a few furrows the plow stuck fast. And when anything stops the Blue Ox it's got to be pretty blamed strong. Paul tickled his ox in the ribs with a light whip made of a small tamarack tree and in the sudden effort they threw intothe air a great big rock. The rock went so high that it took seventy days and eighty nights for it to come down again. While in the air it fomfied an eclipse that lasted for a week. When it did come down it jarred the countryside for miles around. This huge rock has come to be known as Mount Simon. Yes, sir! And, you see, this left the Dell's Pond. "Paul thought that if the hole was bigger he could use it to water his ox. You see the ox al- ways drank the river dry every fifteen minutes.. But, you see, the water had been running in it from the Chippewa River. So, mind you, Paul had Babe drink the water and he did this in one gulp. Then Paul picked up the shovel and scooped a few shovels full of dirt from the bottom of the hole and piled it up in one heap. Believe it or not, but that is what you call Mount Tom. "Looking over his work Paul saw that for some reason or another the furrows he had made, piled up in one long series of mounds. You know what a mound is, don't you? It's just a young mountain. It was this sight that inspired Paul to invest the new method of farming. So he got john Shears and his scissor-bills to plant the seeds and shrubs on these mounds. Seein's the ground was good, the things grew fast and large. Let me tell you, john harvested and planted a crop every two weeks. This was a record even in these days and made history. "Mark this. The potatoes grew so large that Paul had to invent the steam shovel to har- vest them. Derricks and stump-pullers had to be used to get the carrots and 'baggas' out of the ground. Strawberries grew on bushes. The raspberry trees grew to a great height and they had berries the size of apples. And, mind you, axes had to be used to cut down the corn stocks and one cob of corn would make a meal for seven men. "Of course, you understand, the ground couldn't hold up under such treatment. After thir- teen years and thirteen days the rich soil started to give way to sand so that now those hills are nothing but sand hills with a few trees and shrubs on them. After work on the farm was well started Paul remembered that his camp might need him. He looked around for the ox but couldn't find her. But the plow was there, you bet! Catch Babe dragging the plow home when she only had to unfasten the chain with her teeth! So Paul hooked the little finger of his left hand in the third link of the chain and began dragging the plow home. Believe it or not, but the slash that the plow made in the ground has become what you young fellers call the Eau Claire River." h The old man sat silently, spitting into space, calling on strange and hearty gods to sustain im. joe Jacobsen, '29 WISCONSIN PINE Stately pine by yonder brook, Sentinel of yon shady nook, Regal tree of emerald hue Overhung by sky of blue, Still unchanged by countless days, Silent guide for travelers' ways: Stately pine, majestic, old, You were shelter for the bold- Duluth, Hennepin, and Marquette Joliet and Nicollet- Sprung from earth, but towering high, Emblem of democracy.

White Cloud's staccato rap was answered by Ada McCourtie. "Boy sick! Morning Sun sick! jake's squaw help?" said the squaw. "Yes, certainly l'll help. What seems to be the matter?" Mrs. McCourtie inquired, as she filled a pail with the ever ready broth. Picking up a few medicinal aids and her shawl, she quickly followed the squaw back to the canoe. Her questioning was answered only by indescribable grunts and such phrases as "head hot" and "won't eat." The icy wind that swept the lake sent but infrequent blasts through the little lndian village on its shore. Ada McCourtie was very thankful that none of these reached the interior of Morn- ing Sun's wigwam. lt was comparatively warm in there, for his little sister had kept a fire burn- ing in the middle of the tepee while their mother was on her errand. Tiny Blossom put the broth in a kettle that swung over the blaze while Ada turned toward the boy. She scarcely recognized the pale, quiet lad who lay beneath the brilliant blanket as the gay, sunny youth who had been declared a brave just that fall. His black eyes no longer spark- led, his straight nose quivered, and his blanched lips were parted as he drew in each breath. Ada laid la cool hand upon his hot brow. Morning Sun murmured some little indistinct syllable of t an s. As the capable white woman worked about the tepee making the boy more comfortable, she athered his story from little Tiny Blossom. 'The medicine man had left the camp two days ago for another village miles away. Morning Sun had been sick then, but had suffered a sudden turn for the worse this morning. White Colud uttered grunts of approval as her daughter related all this to Ada. After Mrs. McOourtie had done all she could for the boy that day, the squaw took her home. "How handsome White Cloud looks!" thought Ada as she rowed across the lake. The sharp wind whipped color into the high cheeks of the Indian woman and blew the black hair back from the young forehead which had but twolines of worry in it. Yet her whole face bespoke her fear for her son. As Ada stepped from the canoe she laid her hand sympathetically upon the other womans and spoke softly, "May God be with you both!" The stoic Indian hung her head that her friend might not see the tears that glistened in her eyes. Ada stood on the beach and watched the canoe glide into the dim distance under the strong, quick stroke of the squaw. For a week Ada made daily visits to Morning Sun. The boy improved quite a bit during this time. At his request, White Cloud gave both jake and Ada a pair of beaded moccasins. The next week and for many following Ada continued to send broths and many nourishing dishes over the water to the lad by one of her children. As winter approached, the lake froze over and the snow piled up at the edges. The winds blew more cold and harsh. Still the children made their daily visits to the Indian village. Still Moming Sun lay listlessly on his couch. The tears still shone in White Cloud's eyes, and Tiny Blossom had grown sad and serious from constant watching.

One afternoon at sundown, Tiny Blossom saw a robin. Her brother seemed to take on new interest as she told him about it. Morning Sun drifted off to sleep early that evening. A great peace Filled White Cloud's breast. But alas! at dawn Morn- ing Sun's hand was cold, his heart was still. The mother's tears overflowed. All the next week the camp was filled with the dismal howlings and the weird ceremonies of the tribal funeral. Finally, amidst clamorous mourning, the body was born to the burial ground. A. V. I. i xx N -. . f s ,r 1 1 Gm Q 'gl st' , ix t vs , - T l Throughout all this confusion, White Cloud had remained impassively silent. Now, Ada pressed her arm and whispered, "He has gone to the Happy Hunting Ground." As the usually unemo- tional Indian took the other woman's hand and kissed it, a frank tear fell upon it. For two days after that, Ada and jake saw nothing of their red friends. On the third day a came out of the setting sun toward their beach. As these neared it seemed to jake that the en- tire Indian village was heading his way. Then a hundred braves leaped from their canoes and. without saying a word, procured a large dry goods box from behind jake's store and dragged it out into the clearin . Then they took the astonished jake, and placing him on it, formed a circle around him. The Targe pugnacious-looking chief took a long clay pipe from his beaded belt and slowly and unconcernedly filled it. As unconcernedly he lighted it, and as slowly he put it be- tween his lips. His beady eyes burned as he lazily puffed at the uncouth thing. Then he passed it to the braves next to him, who in turn smoked it and passed it on. All this Ada saw as her children huddled about her in the cabin doorway. What were they doing to her jake? Were they blaming him for the death of Morning Sun? Why did they all have their feathers on? Why were they all painted up? It was not war paint,-yet it was very similar, Why were they all so silent? "White Cloud is coming!" exclaimed one of the children, pointing toward a swiftly approach- ing figure, "You no understand?" White Cloud said, as she flung herself at the older woman's feet. "Peacepipe ceremony! Friends! Indians white man's friends! Friends forever!"

First Honorable Mention "It was a night lak' this, thirt'-Ii' year ago," mused old Rene, as we sat around our camp-fire in the north woods for a quiet hour before rolling up in our blankets for the night. I saw Dick A I ll, ijyx xg, X2 . Hi 'Se Q5 'Zh X Pl 7 X IL N A straighten up, and a significant glance passed between Nick and Eddie. My interest was imme- diately aroused. Could it be that old Rene was going to reveal to us the secret of sorrow which had touched his gay, youthful, spirit so many years ago, and turned his life to a drab expanse of weary, bitter years? There were old men in the village where he lived who could remember when Rene Mignault was the most dashing young cavalier in all the lumber country: but one day, they say, he was miss- ing from his home. Four weeks later he returned, but he was a changed man. From then on, he was only the quiet, sad - e ed man we had come to know, and the gathering years had not changed him, save to whiten his hair and lame his old joints with rheumatism. And so we sat and listened, while our campfire cast flickering shadows around the circle, and old Rene's face was transformed into some grotesque mask in the half-light. A "'I'hirt'-fi' year ago, "repeated Rene. "It was a moonlight night Iak' this-the woods all still but the fox bark an' the loon callin' to his crazy mate. On nights lak' this my Jeanne and I go for walk in the fores'. Jeanne, the girl I goin' to make marriage with-Jeanne, my white fleur- my singin' bird. In all the north woods there no girl Iak' my Jeanne, an' all the other men jeal- ous of me. But we were happy-Jeanne an' me-an' on moonlight nights we walk in the fores' an' talk about our love an' our marriage." He paused, absorbed in memory. "So there was a girl in it," thought I, and I could see that the other boys were thinking the same thing. Somehow, we had always regarded Rene as a lonely old soul, who had never known the love of woman. But I could think no more of that, for old Rene had resumed his tale. "Me an' my Jeanne, we walk in the fores' one night, thinkin' of nothin' but oursel's, for in three days the good Father Pierre pass by on his way to Sault Ste. Marie, an' we plan for him to an' a clearin' made aroun' it, marry us. Our little cabin on the hill above the village all built, an' I have the consent of Jeanne's pere to wed his daughter. So my white Heur an' me we ver' happy, an' we notice nothin' as we follow the path. "When we are deep in the fores', genane tell me she know of a hiding-place nearby, an' if I give her five minute to get there, she et I cannot fin' her. We make a wager that if I fin' her, she promise to marry me when Father Pierre go toward Sault Ste Marieg but if I fin' her not, then I mus' wait till he return, t'ree week later. So I sit down on a big white rock, an' Jeanne, she go up the path out of sight. Of course, I'm anxious to fin' her, for how can Itwait t'ree week longer for marryin' my white Heur? So I'm impatient, an' I fidget an' turn, there on the rock, waitin' till I think fi' minute gone. "While I sit there, I begin to feel uneasy. 'What,' think I, 'if my Jeanne meet that wil' cat Francois been tellin' about seein' here in the woods? What if she stumble and fall, or set her foot in a bear trap? For in those days, the country was wil', an' bad men an' beasts roamed through the fores', an' I think it is not good for my Jeanne to be alone, even for fi' minute. The more I think this, the more certain I feel that I mus' go at once an' fin' her, but I have tole her I wait fi' minnit, an' I mus' not break my word with my sweet fleur--so I sit and worry. At las' I think my time gone, an' I may start searchin' for my Jeanne, so I leave the rock an' set out. I search behin' the trees an' rock along the way, but no Jeanne. I even climb a tree, think- in' my song bird may be hidin' there, but I fin' her not. I grow anxious-I call, 'J eanne! White Fleur! Come-I give up the wager-I wait t'ree week if you want, but come-for I am frightl' But no one answer, an' I go on. Now I become frantic, an' run lak' crazy man, hunting' every- where, but I do not fin' my sweet Jeanne. Suddenly I dart forward, for I have seen a white somethin' lyin' on the groun'. I pick it up -I aze fearfully at it-I implore I-Ieaven to let me fin' my Jeanne-for the somethin' is the scarfg I give my sweetheart on her las' birthday, when she is nineteen. An' now I am fill' with despair, an' I give my white Heur up for los'. For four week I roam the fores', lookin' always for her, but never can I fin' more than her white scarf. But when again the moon is full, I can no longer stan' it, an' I return to the village." Old Rene stopped, and his head drooped low. We feared he would tell us no more, and I was about to urge him to finish his tale, when he spoke -4 again, in a voice choking with sorrow. , 1 'I 2 Page One Hundred Ninety-Two -i g -'rj . f qi: fi -fii wk I - 4:-is ...ug X -, .,s, - - i ff I , UQQQC9 .

"Have you seen any Indians," the leader cried. "Why, no," I answered, becoming alarmed. "Well, you'd better be movin' on into town," said one of them. "The Indians have been to the Sommermeyer farm and have burned the buildings!" With that they rode on, and I stood in the door, looking after them, thunderstruck. "What did they say?" my mother called to me. I went into the cabin and told her. "But-with me being sick," said my mother, "it will be difficult to go to town." "Never mind, mother," l answered, "I'll hitch up the horses and put you into the wagon on some quilts." , I hurried as I never hurried before or will ever hurry again. I harnessed the horses, and even they seemed to sense the fact that danger was near and nervously pawed the ground. Then I carried quilts out of the cabin and made a kind of bed in the wagon. After this l helped my mother to lie down on the make-shift bed. After picking up a gun and some bullets, I jumped up on the wagon. and away we went. By this time the horses were actually as frightened as I was, and they went pounding down the road, raising such a cloud of dust that I could hardly see to guide them. The Presbyterian church built in 1857-the first church ever built in Eau Claire. The present Presbyter- ian church was erected on the same site. 4 ,ff'1t f Vwfh ' 'E Gif ' ,Ill 'I 1: ' 5 I A 1 -X-lk '. ,lg Page One Hundred Ninety-Four may Ji 0, W-Z N is .s'f - ' 'cd I TTI T.

'Maybe it's the Indians," my mother said, and I wondered how she could be so calm. "You'd better stop, for if they are Indians, they will kill us anyway." Those moments of suspense! I have never felt so frightened as l did then. My fears were laid at rest, however, in a very short time, because we could soon see that they were not Indians but white men. "Met any Indians?" yelled the leader at me. "None," I answered, and they vanished in a cloud of dust. I drove on, urging the horses to their limit. When we came in sight of the ferry, we saw a milling mass of wagons. All of them wanted to cross the river at once and, as the ferry could carry only two at a time, it was slow work. People were shouting, cattle and horses were bellow- ing and stamping, babies were crying, and a few men were trying to maintain some order by keep- ing the wagons in line. When we had crossed the east side, everybody hurried into Barstow Street near the first church ever built in Eau Claire. Men were armed with guns, knives, axes, pieces of iron, and even scythes. It was a motley crowd. One woman was apportioning out milk and bread to her children, who were crowding about her and hungrily reaching up their hands, a small boy about six, was attempting to load a gung a young man with a tense, white face was holding his sobbing sweetheart tight in his arms. Everyone finally quieted down for the night, and guards were stationed all around. A deathly still calm settled over the multitude. Mothers sat or leaned against a tree or wagon wheel with their broods gathered about them. Men fingered their weapons and strained their eyes to pierce the heavy, velvet darkness, for there were no stars. One by one, fires were made, only to be put out for fear that the Indians might see and know where to attack. The horses, stationed at the edge of the group of people, moved uneasily. Once a fox scuttled near and the horses snorted and attempted to break away, but finally the silence was resumed. Silence. Silence Heavy and overwhelming. At last! The black mantle of night was breaking. The sky began to grow gray in the east, rising and spreading. People started to move about in preparation for a new day. A tiny laven- der light parted the gray and continued to grow. Presently it was succeeded by a gold light which just preceded the sun itself. lt rose, a great red-gold ball, sailing slowly up in the morning sky and spreading all over the world the reflection of its glory. A new day had begun! Early in the mornin captain Sherman and his rangers scoured around and located an Indian camp two miles west of Shawtown. They carefully and stealthily approched and won the bat- tle-for the Indians' camp turned out to be only some hay in a meadow! However, the bravery with which they attacked when they still believed that Indians were lurking there was not easily forgotten. We were soon afterwards informed that there was an Indian scare all over Wisconsin. The Sioux Indians were stationed west of the Mississippi River, and the Chippewas were in the north- ern part of Wisconsin. The Chippewas were frightened and had gone back into the northern woods to protect themselves, while, on the other hand the Sioux had drawn themselves up near the Mississippi and seemed to be contemplating war. The joke was, in reality, on us, because the Chippewas were just as afraid of the Sioux as we were of either of them. Lucille Mullendore, '30 U X, 3 "A: J-M - . i I.

Within the log cabin itself, the x dying embers of the fire were graciously replenished by the old Indian warrior, my friend, now X past ninety winters, As the fire again burst into flame casting shadows upon the further corners Nt' 'Xt of the room, the aged man proceeded with his tale, covering the various high spots in the history NX X of Chippewa and Sioux rivalry in and about the territory o Eau Claire. This story it is now my l. ' - duty to give as it was related to my friend Howard and myself. "You know, my friends, that my father as a young man, was in close company with the Chip- pewa chieftain who headed his tribe in the year 1832, and many a time has he related various tales to me of the keen rivalry between his tribe and the Sioux. At about the date which I have just mentioned to you, the Chippewa territory was located in northern Wisconsing but our more southern neighbors, the Sioux, questioned our right to this land and all this led to bloody tribal battles between our peoples. "This warfare gave the United States Government much trouble. Because of this a coun-- cil was held at Prairie du Chien in the year 1824, for the purpose of defining boundary lines and solving minor settlements brought up by both tribes. The line finally agreed upon ran either directly through or very near to your city of Eau Claire. l do not remember definitely just where this line ran as 1 did not pay much concern to the matter in my younger days. I know that it ran through a point a half day's march from the Falls of the Chippewa. A half day's march for an Indian constituted about twenty milesg and, if 1 am right, this point was either lo- cated at Little Niagara, just below your Eau Claire Teachers' College, or a little farther down the river. It also was traced up to the mouth of the Clear Water River fEau Claire Riverj. As a whole the Chippewas claimed the territory from St. Paul to Lake Superior, the other tribe claimed the delta of the Chippewa and the territory between the Mississippi and Red Cedar rivers, al- though this really was neutral ground between our two tribes. A great massacre occured in 1843 on the banks of the Brule River about fifteen miles from Lake Superior and midway from the source of the Brule and its mouth. When Buffalo had heard of the advance of the Sioux under Old Crow, he hurriedly gathered together a few of his scattered war- riors, the main body having migrated closer towards the Mississippi, and met the foe at sunset, at the Brule-the Sioux on the west side and the Chippewas on the east. "Knowing he was overmatched, Buffalo built fires along the banks for quite a distance in order to give the impression of numbers. Buffalo had also planned to send one third of his war- riors down the river under my leadership and another third up the river, both to cross when far enough away and then slowly advance towards the Sioux. The remaining third was to act as center men. "At dawn, Buffalo fired a few gun shots as a signal, and his plans then began to formulate. A few of his center men began to run for the bluffs and the Sioux, thinking the latter were retreat- ing. Filled with confidence and howling to get the Chippewa scalps, they started across the riv- er. The Chippewas on our side of the river slowly advanced and the foe found themselves trap- ped in the waters unable to get anywhere in either direction as they were immediately clubbed when they tried to get out of the water. Not one set his foot on either bank at this spot, and their only means of escape was by swimming downstream. The waters of the Brule ran red with blood. The Chippewa loss in this great and decisive battle was only thirteen, but the loss of the Sioux numbered one hundred and one. The latter was counted by the scalps they had obtained. At this point I interrupted the steady drone of the old warrior, and told him to tell us a little about scalping-this gruesome Indian practice. He obligingly continued with his tale, bringing the item in accordingly. "The scalp served two definite purposes and is worn by all tribes of Indians. It was used for counting the results of battle and to show the bravery of warriors. For each scalp the Indian would receive one ea le feather to place in his cap. I think that the expression, "There's a feath- er in his cap," probaily originated from this obtaining of eagle feathers for a scalp-lock. All ln- dians wore their hair long and then, taking three strands, they braided them together and wrap- ped them with moosewood, basswood or cloth, especially red cloth. The remaining hair was al- lowed to fall over, giving a parasol effect. This scalp lock was always put up before a battle and if a man refused to do this he suffered deep ridicule from his fellow tribesmen. The scalp- ing occured just as soon as the enemy had fallen, as this was the only way a warrior could claim his share. if flax "ll gi Page One Hundred Ninety-Six "r"f,4!.5, Q' H .r fl .7 f I , 52' .ff K ffl I Ti. 106+ , T I , V I ,f ---.

At sunset one day the pipe of peace was smoked. The Sioux all remained mounted on their ponies while the head chief advanced toward them with a large red pipe made of clay obtained from Pipestone Moun- tain in one hand, and a hatchet in the other. He threw this hatchet so it was partially buried in the sand. Upon this being done the Sioux cast away any weapons they had on their persons. The pipe of peace was then smoked. The next day a large number of Chippewa chiefs and braves met the delegation at Chippewa City where a dinner was served and partaken of by both parties and a great and imposing ceremony occurred. "After this truce gathering, a somewhat steady peace was maintained between our tribes which was broken only by quarrels easily settled by arbitration." It seemed then that this was the end of his tale, for a blank look appeared on his face, denot- ing most certainly that he had finished. A low, weird howl broke from the woods about us-the howl of a hungry wolf-bringing back reminiscences of the old Wisconsin as Indians and early pioneers had known it. The fire had again smoldered away to embers, this time being allowed to glow as it pleased, for the old, wrinkled warrior and ourselves were lost in thought.

Quietly but ceaselessly onward they move, sweeping all before them like the waters of the tide.

So it is with mang all that he holds dear will pass from him as he walks toward the sunset of life, until he has but one thing left-MEMORY, the power to live again his triumphs, and to thrill once more to the glory of his achievements. Youth lives in the future, in the hope of what it shall beg Age in the past, in the pride of what it has been. Grandpa O'Toole leaned back in his soft arm chair, "Drat it," he exploded, "There ain't no reason why I can't go out. Guess I be as spry as I ever wasg all this talk about colds is stuff and nonsense. Grandfather should have been a very contented old man. For many years he had been one of the town's leading citizens, and twice he had served as a state official. But now that he had reached the age of eighty-six, his daughter, Katey, seemed to feel that she should order his life, even to telling him that he must not go out in a cold spring rain. So, submitting to this unwel- come authority, Grandpa settled back in his easy chair and began to indulge in his favorite pas- time, reminiscence. A little log school house back in i'New Yawk" state Hoated across his memory. Here young Larry O'Toole learned readin', writinland 'rithmetic, supplemented with a knowledge of how to play hookeyg and also, that the most daring schoolma'rm could be intimidated if a mouse were slipped into her desk. A hearty laugh shook the old man as he said aloud, "Thet there school- -ma'rm from Basting sure learned that an Irish boy wouldnt take a lickin' quiet like. She sure kep' her hands off'en me after I put that mouse in her pocket." , S 11 A Loc JAM ln time Larry graduated from the village school, a right smart boy, they all said. 'Rithme- tic and figgers were always his strong points, so he decided to go West and teach the frontier boys that A and B could be juggled about as easily as 2 and 2. A ter a long search Professor O'Toole secured a position in Madison, Wisconsin. The journey from New York to Wisconsin was slow, but Grandpa thought he was traveling in elegant style and comfort. Fifteen years earlier his Uncle jim had gone west to Minnesota, and from his letters Larry had gathered that the trip held many hardships. The boat left Pittsburgh on a bright August day, young Larry O'Toole stood on the deck eagerly watching the new world which was unfolding before him. Ten dollars and a pair of cow- hide boots were his choicest possessions. With this scanty equipment he was going forth to carve his future. ' Arriving Hnally at Chicago, Larry boarded the stage for Madison. I-low often trivial events determine the course of men and of nations! It chanced that O'Toole's companion on this jour- ney was Ed Cameron, a man who ten years before had come to northern Wisconsin and bought a tract of timber land from the government. "Be ye goin' ter teach?" he inquired. Being answered in the affirmative, he continued, "Why don't ye take up lumbering? Thet's the coming business fer ambitious men. Take my tip and go up to Eau Claire or Chippewa Falls, them towns is growin'-goin' ter be a power in the State yit." if gf I ix P le: ., .

A ' pcwa 1. the following May, a burly, red headed young Irishman boarded the stage at Sparta for - ' the long trip to Eau Claire. "People don't travel in sich style now days," he snorted, "Not by a ,vt f' long shot." The next picture was one of the most vivid in Grandpa's entire album. A small street ran - parallel to a river, the Chippewa River, a stranger called it. Along one side of the street were ' several houses, prosperous looking homes for a frontier community, he reflected. Prominent buildings bespoke the business and social life of the town. Sometimes the gay strains of the fiddle and accordian summoned both young and old to the dance, the greatest diversion of the day. Of course there was a bar, and many a gay evening ended in a gayer fight, where bloody noses re- placed red neckties and black eyes outshone polished boots. Perhaps within a day all this was changed, chairs were placed upon the floor, and the platform, which before was occupied by mu- sicians, became a pulpit, and the notes of a square dance reel were supplanted by the strains of "Beulah Land". All this made a great impression on young O'Tooleg if this community was to be his home, he must make himself a part of it. Entering the "Niagara House", he took a room and, after supper and a friendly drink, he retired. Within a week he secured a job with the Northern Wisconsin Lumber Co. Here followed Five of the busiest years of O'Toole's life-years in the lumber camps of the north, where he be- came a seasoned Wisconsin lumberjack, rising at four, eating at long camp tables, were Germans, lrishmen, Bohunks, and an occasional lndian sat down in good fellowship. All day Larry hauled logs from the woods to the river landing. While he seemed to be only one of the lumberjacks, careless, rough, and spendthrift, actuallylhe was a student of the lumber industry. Under his thatch of fiery red hair were plans-plans of a company that he would one day launch. Here Grandpas mind roved to a scene that he could never forget. ln Camp 33, in the winter of oo, ,x , ,' if 1 xx Z Larry did not show much interest in this information, but in the days that followed he often 33 iv A XI X lx A X X i The old Niagara House, erected in l857, the first hotel to be built on the West Side. It stood between Water Street and the river near the end of Third Avenue. This is probably the only picture of this building in existence. Tony Seretti appeared and was immediately dubbed, "Bohunk", and was the butt of many Cigsts. Grandpa smiled as he recalled the time that Tony nearly poisoned himself. The men of the mp had been indulging in brandy slings, and Pat McCann, the foreman, had invited Tony to have one. Later in the evening ony asked Larry what the drink was called. O'Toole always ready for a joke replied, "Oh you get some stuff called arsenic, put a spoonful of that in a glass of water and there's your drink." Tony acted upon this suggestion, but thanks to the curiosity of the storekeeper, he learned that arsenic did not make brandy slings. A shade of sadness crossed Graridpa's face and his wrinkled hands grasped his cane tighter. Ah, he was living it over again, the reat day! The logs were headed into the river like living things, tossing, milling, straining. 'Fheir herders, men in corduroy breeches, spiked boots and bright flannel shirts, stood on the dock. Long sticks with sharp iron ends served as their shept " herd's crooks. Five men, husky, well seasoned lumberjacks, stood ready to "take the logs down.

On and on it came? :fgreat wall of water. just as the water struck, the log jam broke loose. There was a mighty deafening roar and the earth shook, as the logs moved off. Tony Seretti stood on the bank watching the jam start. Amid the roar and confusion no one heard Larry O'Toole shout as he lurched, swayed and lost his footing when the water struck his raft. Seretti hesitated for a moment, then plunged in. A few seconds later he dragged O'Toole ashore, wet and bruised. Larry thanked him in the usual gruff, lumberjack fashion, and that spring they parted forever, but Grandpa never forgot the incident, it was still a gripping memory. The scene shifted, Grandpa now owned the Selby Lake Lumber Company. With his grow- ing business Eau Claire had rown too. The city now loomed up on both sides of the river, tall buildings, board walks, schooffs and churches now distinguished the town from a frontier commun- ity. Ladies in full skirts and rustling bustles gave color to the social life of the day. O'Toole now owned a pretentious residence on the fashionable "West Side". The forests of the state were rapidly decreasing but Grandpa's money was just as rapidly increasing, so that he now felt justified in buying a team and carriage and in sending his son, jim, East to school, Ah, how the town had changed! Water Street was no longer the main thoroughfare. The new Putnam Building on Barstow Street and Grand Avenue gave Eau Claire the appearance of a real city. Every spring the logs came down to the Shaw Mills, but they were no longer accom- panied by a crowd of lumberjacks who danced, drank, and- made merry. Law, order and social customs which invariably follow civilization had put their stamp on the growing community. Years rolled by, bringing something new, removing the old-changing, ever changing. "It be all different, all different," mourned Grandpa. "Young 'uns don't have the fun we did. The town, that be different toog no landmarks left. Paved streets, concrete bridges and high build- ings are all you see when you go out-not even a saloon left. Even the river be different. All you'se hear of now is power dams fhere the old gentleman snorted, for he believed more in man power than in new fangled electricityi. "Me pals are all gone too-Lal, Mike, joe and Peteg all of them's rid the rafts that we don't see dock." Tired from so much exertion Grandpa leaned his weary, silvered head against the cushion, and wondered if, after all, he had not played a part in a great drama, and seem amighty panor- ama unfolded. l-le had known Eau Claire when it was but a half grown frontier ruffian, glory- ing in brute strength, under his hand and the hands of his contemporaries, it had grown to a ma- ture city, quiet and dignified, following an ideal-doing for its citizens as a wise parent, rather than sporting with them, as a carefree playfellow. Grandfathefs gnarled hands had ceased from their labor, but not until they had helped to lay the foundations of a happy, thriving city, "Where the Rivers Meet." - Helen Van I-louten, '30 OLD ABE WINS THE DAY sEcoND HONORABLE MENTION The bugles rang shrilly, the cry was, to horse!

This shall serve to refresh my memory in the years to come, and when I read it, I shall live again the golden days of High School. My Aunt, Hepzibah Gilroy, with whom I have lived ever since mother died, has consented to my attending Eau Claire High School, though 'tis a sore blow to her, for she hath always de- sired for me to go to Miss Prune's select boarding school. Auntie, being of old pioneer stock, and a member of one of Eau Claire's oldest families, thinks always of maintaining our social position. She is really very kind, but she is so old-fashioned, and to her, the customs of today do hold much of bewilderment and misunderstanding. Because of this, I have been brought up in somewhat of seclusion, and 'tis very strange, as well as interesting, to go to school with twelve hundred other boys and girls-though I do confess that oftentimes their ridicule of my old-fashioned garb and stilted English do hurt me, but I think me I shall get used to it in time. The one ambition which occupyeth my mind at present is to let my hair grow to shoulder length, and to put it back behind my ears with combs, the way so many of the girls are doing now. But enough of this wandering-I must haste to my diary! September School opened September seventh. The building was most uncomfortably overrun with freshmen, who did stand around in open-mouthed wonder at the new order of things. Came upon one standing like a nitwit in the lower hall, who presumed to ask me how to get to Miss I.yman's French class. l directed him to the Chemistry laboratory, and did strut down the hall, much elated, and complimenting myself for a brilliant one. Mr. Davey, our new principal, who, I flatter myself, is a right good man, gave an speech in auditorium. Warned us not to address Miss Berglund as "Ruby", or himself as Heigh- ho! New rules already! The rules are not the only things which are new! There's ever so many new teachers. The tiniest little blond you ever saw is here to "advise" the school paper, which is called the "News", and to teach journalsim, and really, she is no bigger than her name, which is Miss I-land. And Mr. Warble, who teaches history and civics-when first I heard his name, I thought, "Ah, a new sponsor for the glee clubs!" Picture, if you will, my confusion when I learned my error! Those students who were 4-B's last -year have taken on monstrous airs, and sit in the library in an attitude of classical boredom which only seniors are allowed to affect. When I get to be a senior-oh, distant day!-I shall practice airs in front of my mirror till I can flounce around with the best of them! 'Twill be a fair lot of fun, I warrant! The great Kodak drive is on! Huge letters spelling "Kodak" adorn the four corners of each hall. Beautiful posters hang in every room. Stunts are put on, and solicitors run hither and yon, selling subscriptions by the ream! I think me I shall buy one-you get such a pretty pur- ple card with silver lettering on it to wear-'twill look uncommon handsome with my yellow dress. And from what I hear, the Kodak must be a most wonderful book, what with pictures and or- ganizations, and athletics, and everything. I'd buy one just for the chance of owning a picture all those handsome athletes, even if there weren't anything else in the book! And speaking of athletes, our team of great big football men won a game from New Rich- mond this month. I can't understand football well enough to tell you about it-all I know is that they kick a ball, and run around hitting each other, and, if they play in the mud, they seem to like it better. Ugh! I'd much rather read "Little Women," or "Nelly's Silver Mine" than go see such actions. Besides, Auntie does not approve. Methinks 'twould not be unseemly to close this month's happenings with a joke on the fresh- men. I t would seem that during the mass meetings before the football games, the, freshmen are sore puzzled by some of the songs we sing, particularly the one called "Alma Mater", and one of them was heard to ask "who the Alma is that everyone's singing about," and another of the same classification did make answer and say, "'Twas the Alma in Mr. Keller's office", meaning Alma Berglund of course. Such are the impressions of the newcomers within our gates. Page1Two Hundred Five a lll ' bf 45 --- X- Q.-ss, ai T,-N - -fi.

Had hardly doffed my pur- ple "Kodak" card, when a solicitor hands me an red one, on which is printed, "I have subscribed to the News", and says, "Seventy-five cents, please." I am minded not to take it, as 'twill clash 'll N most unbecomingly with my pink dress, but I bethink myself that I can wear my green dress on Naam the morrow, with which 'twill look most fine, so I hand him the silver. K t 1 K N Another assembly-this one for the News drive. I Haunt my red card before those unfort- unates who have not procured theirs. A stunt given on the stage featured a most intelligent and brilliantly colored cow-"Galli Curci"--and I laughed till I fain would powder my nose, but my vanity case had escaped me. Distribution of free copies of the News, accompanied by most un- mannerly howls of glee from the Scotch representation, concluded the program. Our boys won some more football games-from Marshfield and Menomonie and Wausau and La Crosse, and some of them were muddy ones, so I guess everyone is satisfied. All the classes are hard at it electing officers, A wavy haired gentleman named Hanson is leading the 4A's, while Kenneth Manz, the hardy Swiss, is 4B president. That cunnng boy with the pug nose, jack Linton, I think his name is, was chosen by the 3A's for their leader. The new 4A president did show exemplary diligence by immediately surrounding himself with fourteen senior committees to help him manage the january graduation class. They're going to decide on what costume to don for dress up day, and what invitations to send out for the graduation exer- cises, and all sorts of details like that. The first student council met on the tenth of this month. Methinks 'tis a very good idea for the student body to be thus represented. As I understand it. the boy who does hold the high- est office in his class, and the highest girl officer, do represent their class in this council of sixteen members. As to their exact work, l am a little uncertain, but I believe it to be concerned with the welfare and improvement of their fellow students. The big ZA mixer fumished much of what the modems call "Whoopee" on the l9th. For- tunes were told-jack o'lantern ones! And with all the Halloween features and ads in the News, and the whisperings in dark corners concerning Halloween parties, I am 'most afeared to even look out of the window after dark. The Grey Dominoes, an organization of dramatically inclined girls, did hold election of offi- cers, and Doris Button was elected president. 'Tis most amusing to witness the daily rush between classes, particularly in the morning, when a period of only three minutes is allowed to et from one class to another. Especially edi- fying is the case of someone with a class on second goof, locker on the first and a study hall on the third-hard is his lot, and speedy must be his heels in order to avoid a trip to the office for a tardy s ip. l'll let you in on a secret-I'm letting my hair grow! 'Tis so very stylish, and when I see how cute Liora Rowan and Carolyn Nielsen look with theirs curling around their ears, I am as- sailed with monstrous jealousy and covetous feelings! November Another month before us! I was so disappointed this morning when I measured my hair and found it had not grown even a quarter of an inch! If it goes on this way, I shall be sore put to it to be thankful for anything on Thanksgiving day. Great excitement hath prevailed of late 'mong the seniors, several of whom have been trying out for the class play. Mr. Watson, that tall, serious looking man with the big glasses, is going to direct the play, which is called "The Passing of the Third Floor Backu. When I heard the title, I decided to beg Aunt Hepsy to let me go, but when I found that Lawrence Graebel, that dark, mysterious-looking boy whose eyes make the girls' hearts turn unseemly somersaults, was to be the leading man, I resolved to go at all costs. And faith, I could scarce suppress a giggle when ,fl I heard that Charles Kepler is to "fill the part of a well-fed military man" in the play. The role 5 is so Fitting that l. laughed till my nose did become reddened, and I must needs resort to my van- if ity case. . 5 5111? ' l ii fl - l, 1 ul Pa e Two Hundred Six ""' I' ,Ill 14 8 A ,. 5.

'Tis astonishing what idle thoughts occupy the minds of some people! I showed the Horoscope to Auntie, and she threw up her hands in horror, and I must bring her smelling salts at once. Our football team won the homecoming game from River Falls. I hear 'twas a monstrous exciting game. I didn't go, for Aunt I-lepsy thinks 'tis not ladylike for me to attend such rough games. They also won a game from Chippewa Falls, which produced much of rejoicing and cheer ing 'mong the Eau Claire fans. A bronze memorial tablet was unveiled in an impressive open air service for Armistice Day. I couldn't hear the band playing the marches and patriotic music, because a large black dog be- hind me insisted on howling a mournful accompaniment, which quite drowned out the sound of the music. But fortunately for me, he discontinued his vocal efforts in time for me to hear the speeches given by Mr. Keller, Mr. Leinenkugel, and Dr. Wilson. I took much interest in hear- ing of the local boys who did "lay down their lives for their country." That all-school organization, the Pep Club, sold the cunningest little megaphone pins to certify membership, this week. And there was a big pep meeting just before the Chippewa game, at which a mock Indian council was held. lnitiations seem to be in order this month. The Fine Arts, one of the leading girls' organiz- ations, took in fourteen new members the other day. Many were the tales whispered about the halls of the horrid things perpetrated on the unfortunate novices at the home of Paulene Bonesho on the fateful eve of initiation. And the next day, the new members were a sight to convulse all onlookers, who did laugh and twit them in a most painful way. They were forced to wear bed- room slippers, housedresses, aprons, and to wind their hair in a most unbecoming way on rags. They were a sorry looking lot, and I thanked my lucky stars that I was not among them. The Grey Dominoes did also make room for new members, and I did hear that their initia- tion, starting from the home of Elizabeth Selbach, took in virtually all of the West side. Their appearance at school the "day after" was even more ludicrous than the Fine Arts Girls' had been. They must wear their dresses wrong side out, mismated slippers and stockings, wear no make-up, and their hair was drawn severely back under white handkerchiefs, topped by a flambouant "dom- ino".cut from grey paper. The Lyceum initiated new members too, and George Dickson's story in the News about "The experiences of a Lyceum initiate" did make me pale and shuddering. And Randall Bezan- son did look so cute wheeling a doll buggy down the hall for his initiation stunt! The Home Economics Club and the Stump admitted new members, too. All the initiates ap- peared at school in the most astounding costumes, and were forced by the pitiless older members to perform all manner of mortifying stunts and capers. Much laughter and excitement reigned in the halls when the january seniors, attired as Bell Hops and Belle ljloppes, did march and sing in the traditional dress up day exercises. At the senior luncheon Dow Tinker, the perennial comedian, did take up a collection, and with it pur- chased for Mr. Davey a box of cigars. ' Thanksgiving vacation was heralded with glee by freshmen and seniors alike, and 'twas rum- ored that jumbo Solberg and Gene Grosman had a match to determine who could eat the most turkey, but I did not hear the outcome of the contest. Rosamund Carlson, lucky girl, won the turkey that was raffled off at the Lyceum Turkey Trot. Many celebrated Thanksgiving by attending the first Vitaphone picture given at the State Theatre. I did not go, but I thought me it must be a wonderfully thrilling experience to hear the screen Stars really talking, only that I do fear that perhaps we shall be disappointed in some of the voices. 'Twould break my heart, should I find that john Gilbert lisps, or that Greta Garbo has a deep bass voice. T Page Two Hundred Seven fa' ,n'A ilk . ,AEV IQX gli-I is 13?

The Honor Roll came out with the name of Freda Moehlenpah,a sophomore, at the head, with an average of 97 in six subjects. Many were the envious glances in her direction by those who didn't even get on the Honor Roll at all, The most important event of the year, thejunior-Senior Prom, is beginning to get under way now, as evidenced by the many discussions of "formals" among the girls. Arthur Nelson, the curly haired football hero, was elected Prom King, and he chose Freda Christensen for his Queen. It seems to be the "Fredas" who are in luck this month. Two Christmas dances were given this month. One was the Stump's "Santa Claus Gallop". Methinks 'twould look right funny to see Santa Claus Galloping! The other was the Grey Dom- inoe Christmas dance. The News opened a big contest about a silly verse, which was called a Limerick. Clyde Grotefend, a freshman, won first prize. All the girls are buying those bright colored smocks to wear to school. They are main pretty, reminding one of rainbows and flower gardens and stick candy, all in one. l did buy me an orange and reen one, which seemed for the moment the brightest one in the building, but I was soon pale? into insignificance by some of the creations worn by the other girls. The boys cast longing glances at our smocks, and Chester Oien even tried one on, but don't ever tell him I told you! Our athletic boys have turned from football to basketball, which is not so dirty, and much more interesting, to my notion They won the first game of the season from Arcadia, and an- other from Barron The seniors gave their class night exercises, which l hear were very good. I had the "flu," and couldn't go. I heard that David Luebkeman did receive a little toy Ford as a part of the will committee stunt, with a verse attached which produced one of the famous Luebkeman blushes. The scholastic standings of the seniors were announced, and 'twas learned that Chula Rem- ington was valedictorian, while Vivian Stone carried the salutatory honors. The best part of the month was the Christmas vacation, if one is to believe what one hears around the school. I spent mine in pulling my hair to see if 'twould not grow, but I fear me my efforts were in vain. january Happy New Year! Following the quaint old custom of making resolutions to guide one's faltering footsteps through the coming year, l did make unto myself twenty of them, one of which l managed to keep for three days-'twas not to worry about the slowness with which my nidder- ing hair doth grow.

'f'Various football heroes who had acquitted themselves creditably on the aforementioned muddy Fields did receive huge 'iE's" with which to adorn their purple sweaters. The seniors, whose loftiness hath oft troubled me in the past, did bid farewell to this insti- tution this month. The poor things did rush hither and yon from Prom to Banquet, until me- thought they would succumb to apoplexy. The mad whirl was brought to a sedate and happy ending by the graudation exercises themselves. The address given by Dr. Leonard did stress the four points of vision. courage, concentration, and perseverance, which, methinks are well to fol- ow. And the Prom! According to all reports, 'twas a most gorgeous occasion. The Grand March headed by Arthur Nelson, a most Iordly "Prom King," with his "Queen," Freda Christensen, was a most beautiful manoeuver. The Senior Banquet was honored by brilliant toasts. One speaker, ,tis reported, fell victim to some malady called "buck fever " which methinks is a strange thing to have at a banquet! The News did reorganize their staff, bidding a tearful good bye to their old editor, Richard Brady, who did graduate, and installing a new one, Chester Oien. They did also give a banquet, for the purpose of entertaining those members of the staH who graduated, namely, Richard Brady, Magne Ager, Lawrence Graebel, and Charles Bunde. 'Tis rumored that Mr. josvanger did spend the eveing teaching john Kelley to eat peas with his knife. After a banquet, most of the News- ites went to the State Theatre, to witness a drama entitled "Abie's Irish Rose." With Auntie's consent I attended the january class play, styled "The Passing of the Third Floor Back." I did burst into most unladylike laughter when Major Tompkins fCharIes Keplerl secreted some cake and rolls in his silk hat, and when the fussy old maid CVivian Stonej did exert her ,wiles to lead astray the heart of the mysterious Stranger fLawrence Graebelj. I did also attend the Menomonie-Eau Claire basketball game, in which Menomonie did win by one insignificant point. I near wept when I thought of Ulry, Finn, and Davie Luebkeman losing their last game before graduation. And before that, they lost one to Wausua, too. Much of mirth was created by a story which appeared in the News, called "White Elephant Party. " It was evidently the writer's aim to reveal to us the most precious possessions of vari- ous of our classmates. 'Twas with genuine interest that I learned that Chester Oien had a new tooth, that Westley I-Ioffmanjust dotes on taking typewriters apart, and that Anne Brook has a collection of boy's handkerchiefs. That honorary society, the Quill Club, did elect three members from this semesters advanced composition classes-Phyllis Kelley, William McMillan, and Laban Smith. Methinks I will try for that honor, weilding my pen with utmost diligence. I am informed by those who, being seniors. are eminently fitted to know, that one of the great- est trials of graduation is "sitting" for senior pictures. Something is always sure to "put a hitch" in one's expression at the last moment, and many of the likenesses are a profound disappointment to their unhappy originals. .Q Page Two Hundred Nine .1 K f'i": i, .. -r f Q J , 1 ms n ,An K -'Q-fm' C 'W' ' I '--- , -iL,.A43B- ., . rf.

This month - we look to all the great birthdays-those of George NVashington, Abraham Lincoln, and others, I such as Ramsay McDermid, ,lack Linton, and Hortense Boutell. It A most edifying program was given in the auditorium for NVashington's birthday. A play, Nl X ,X "God Winks," featuring john Kilde as the fiery, rheumatic old patriot, did raise many laughs. The News did give an festive dance in the gymnasium, free to subscribers. I thought the tickets were monstrous pretty-they were green. Several girls did try their luck in the Grey Dominoe tryout, three of whom were elected to membership-Hortense Boutell, Lucille Mullendore. and Ione Hansen. The 4A class have elected Nels Bailkey president, and poor Nels groweth gray-headed try- ing to serve as model for the other rapscallions in the class. for 'twould seem this is what the teach- ers expect of him. The high school band and orchestra favored us with a concert which delighted the ears of all who attended. Some of the stronger minded boys have taken it upon themselves to form a new club, called the "Council," Faith, and it made me wonder why the girls don't have one too. Beatrice Loken was elected head of the Senior Girls' organization, while a plump boy named W'aldron Werner doth lead the boys. ' Miss Gower did unearth and cause to appear in the News a valentine made in the year 1812. I thought me 'twas most romantically sweet-something like those I imagine Auntie once got from her beaux. Anew system of marking by letters instead of numbers did go into effect this month, causing much wailing and consternation 'mong the students, who are put to it to adapt themselves to this new order of things. The boys of the News staff formed a Bachelors Club, for initiation into which the poor boys were forced to go without ties for a week, presenting a most dishevelled and laughable appear- ance. Worse than that, they were not allowed to speak to any girls, and 'twas a most pathetic sight to see David Shirley trying to refrain from this forbidden conversation. Zounds, an' I thought he would burst with the effort! The Kodak announced a literary contest which methinks will prove most interesting, being based on the history of Eau Claire, in accordance with the theme of the year book itself. A new feature, "locker day", did occupy a full eighth period, and startling indeed were the results of the clean-up. 'Twas rumored that one of the boys found a long dead cat in the bottom of his, but as for me, I was content with finding a dime in mine. The debating team, who roll out big words so glibly, have won several debates, for which they deserve much credit, for debating, l take it, is Mall work and no play". Mr. Mathison jokingly refers to Robert Mills as "the tallest debater in captivity", and methinks this title is not wrong, but why did Mr. Mathison fail to give Bruce Nelson recognition as "the shortest debater this side of Paris?" The 4B class, to supplement their impoverished treasury, have started collecting "junk" to sell, I did tell Auntie of this, and then l must spend half the evening explaining to her that junk-collecting is not a regular course in high school. Auntie is so unreasonable, sometimes! This month our basketball men did play many games. One they won from the Chippewa Cardinals, and another they lost to the same team-a sort of see-saw, it seems. Also they de- feated Menomonie and lost to La Crosse. The senior-faculty fracas was most interesting, and for the first time in three years. the faculty did win. Am in despair because of my unruly hair, which has grown to a most unbecoming length, and now refuses to grow further. I think me that some day I will surely yield to temptation, and cut it off! . A school for the Parent-Teachers' Association was held here in Eau Claire with Mrs. Zachow ,. I, as the chief speaker.

K ' March ' Q ' Jff ,. So very much of uncommon interest hath transpired during this month that I fear me I shall r' we fail sadly in attempting to record it all. but I shall try to remember everything. Early in the month were announced the senior grades, and 'twas with much of interest that I learned that Mary Barnes is to be valedictorian, while Hannah Polden is salutatorian. Faith, and it must take an immense lot of studying fof which I am not fondl and concentration fin which l am unfortunately deficientj to attain these most coveted honors. Regret was felt by all who are in anyway interested in athletics when 'twas learned that Coach" Dad" Hagen lfad resigned his post here, to return to West Allis, where he has held a po- sition before. However, we comfort ourselves by remembering that he does not leave until the end of the semester. Shudderings a-plenty were in order when Miss Waters added a minature guillotine to her collection of objects reminiscent of the French Reovlution. Those who delight in contemplating such grewsome pastimes as are suggested by this machine were seen to sepnd much of their spare time in examining it. Our basketball team won a game from Marshfield, and scored a victory over Wausau, a hith- erto undefeated team, and so-on to the District Tournament. I had never attended a tourna- ment before, but I did beg and tease so much to go that Aunt Hepsy at last consented, though she is mortal sure the excitement will prove too much for me. So, for the first time, I witnessed a basketball tournament. Auntie was partly right, for I did not sleep a wink for three nights, being so tense with excitement that such a common place thing as .sleep seemed impossible. Our boys won every game they played, as was only fitting, but twas only by one point, gained during an overtime period in the championship game with Chippews Falls. out traditional enemy, that they won the district championship. Zounds, and I thought I would suffocate with excite- ment, fear, exultation, and the general uproar, as the "Red Devils" of Chippewa, and our boys in royal purple, swept up and down the floor while the crowd of fans went mad with cheering. And 'twas thus that we carried off the district championship by a score of 21-20. Chippewa, of course, gained second place, while lvlerrillan won third. The whole tournament was most immensely thrilling and inspiring, and I would not have missed it tor a million dollars, had I that much to give. , , Nor was all the attractiveness of the tournament furnished by the playing alone. The play- ers themselves had much to do with the crowd of girl fans which packed a goodly portion of the gymnasium. Our own Eddie Stanton, as was only to be expected, brought forth the most enthu- siastic cheering from all the girls, who own themselves to be most entirely captivated by his either indifference to their presence, as well as by his oversupply of heart crushing handsomeness. But Edward Pahl fseems the "Edwards" carry the "basketball hero" honorsj .captain of the Arcadia team, did capture many feminine hearts, as well as much masculine favor, by his good looks, coupled with his very excellent playing. Deep. indeed. was the disappointment and chagrin ex- pressed by the girl fans when Arcadia was eliminated from third place by Merrillan. And so it is our boys who will defend the name of Eau Claire in the state meet at Madison next month! The brightest spot of the season was fumished by the new fad for "Collegiate Hats." When john Kelley did appear one day with a flaming red felt hat, we were at first dumbfounded, but we soon put it down as merely another one of that eccentric gentleman's rather strenuous jokes. But when George Ward came to school in a voilent purple creation, and Gene Grcsman procured for himself the twin ofjohn's red one, we were forced to decide that a new "fad" had Eau Claire High School fthis time the boysj in its grip. But it was left for jumbo Solberg to inaugurate a counter-fad for "Sonny Boy" caps by wearing a brilliant orange one. Odsbodkins! And they so say 'tis the girls who are Ufaddy ' and enslaved by fashions snares! A local chapter of a national honorary club of journalism, styled the Quill and Scroll, was in- troduced by Miss Hancl and Miss Newell, faculty advisors of the News and the Kodak. 'Twould seem it were much of an honor to be chosen for membership in this club, for besides marked pro- ficiency in composition and journalism, one must possess a high scholastic average in order to Iom-A grand entertainment, "The Senior Follies" won a deal of acclamation from the audience which did view its production on March twenty-first. Features of this entertainment were acts by Gene Dickerson, Eau Claire's vaudeville artist, and vocal selections by Donald Rust, the high school baritone. More initiations are in order this month, the Fine Arts initiates, again parading the halls dressed in a most motley collection of old clothing. Not an inconsiderable feature of this month was the beginning of Easter vacation, and faith -I think me 'twas time we had a rest of some kind. For nine out of ten of the students in this institution were falling prey to "spring fever" in its advanced stages, till studying became an im- possibility, and recitations a mockery. .Zi -s . - Sr ll I V-L55 -gd Page Two Hundred Eleven T W I f vim , .e - - AL- .

P , g - S ' ii fular school work, are multiplied tenfold, until I can scarce understand how seniors and those who X! are prominent in organizations can be in so many places at once, l, The first important event of this month was the state basketball tournament. Our boys X, played well, but they were hampered by the heat and an unaccustomed gym floor, and failed to win the state championship. But this thought is our consolation: We were the only team throughout the season to defeat the team which won the title-Wausau. Our debaters, too, have acquitted themselves creditably, for although they did not go to the state contest, they, too, had the satisfaction of winning over the team which won the state cham- pionship-Chippewa Falls. Announcement hath been made of prize winners of the Kodak literary contest. First prize was taken by john Keller, who wrote a poem entitled "Old Abe." Methinks it must be a right good piece of work, what with such interesting subject matter. Nels Bailkey placed second with a stroy "Before the Setting Sun", which, if a title be an index of the story, I think must be a very fine one. And joseph Jacobsen carried third prize with his legendary story called "Paul Bunyan Comes to Eau Claire." l'm always interested in tales of Paul Bunyan, so 'tis with much expect- ancy that l look forward to the appearance of these literary productions in the Kodak for this year. The Quill Club did elect thirteen new members this semester-an improvement on last ycar's three initiates. Great pandemonium did accompan the Kodak Karnival, given April 12-13. Many were the features of the first evening-booths where you "fished" for valuable articlesg others where you chanced all on the revolutions of a paddle-wheel, while in others, ring tossing and nail-driving were accompanied by toothsome rewards. The booth which attracted most attention was one where for ten cents, one might try three times to hit Mr. Davey with tennis balls. Methought this performance would damage both Mr. Davey and his dignity, but both emerged intact at the end of the evening. Blood-curdling shrieks issued all evening from the "House of Horrors" at regular intervals. And shouts of mirth attended the presentation of the Hi-Y minstrels. A popularity contest. was conducted in which jack Linton did place first for the boys, Margaret Poirier for the girls, and Miss Spencer for the teachers. Besides all this gayety and merrymaking, there was dancing available, mock arrests, refreshments to be purchased, and novelties of all kinds, until everyone was fairly dizzy with the excitement of it all. The second night features a "Revue" in the auditorium, which was a most satisfying combin- ation of one-act plays, tumbling, and dance acts. The class play class announcement reveals Llora Rowan and john Kelley carrying the lead- ing roles in "Tommy," a light comedy. Oratory tryouts were held, Wilbur Bridgman placing first, and David Shirley second. FORECAST And now I must of necessity close this chronicle, for 'tis the unfortunate truth that it becomes compulsory for me to spend the rest of the semester working, rather than writing in this Diary. But before I do close, l shall do a little prophesying, for 'tis in my power to forecast coming events. When I was only a child, Aunt I-Iepsy did go with me to an fortune teller, and this woman did inform my Auntie that I was born under the star of prophecy, and that I should be able to foretell things with an admirable accuracy. D First, I do forecast that on April eighteenth the Seniors, attired in brilliant Russian costumes, will march and sing in their traditional class day exercises. Declamation will claim its share of attention, and the girls who have signed up will strive rrtiightily for the honor of winning the silver loving cup which does go to the victor in a contest o this kind. I do foretell that the graduation exercises will claim much time with the Seniors. The Prom will be held with even more of pomp and beauty than ever before, and much will be the specula- tion concerning the identity of Prom King and Queen. The Class Play will be given with a great amount of success and brilliance, each member of the cast acquitting themselves with much assurance. The graduation exercises will again be held, with each boy and girl attired in new clothing of uniform color and material. And so, with the hope in mind that the succeeding years in this school will be as brilliant and eventful as this year of 1928-29, I close this chronicle of school happenings.
