Awake but one,.and lo! what myriads rise! Each stamps its image as the other flies." fr For nineteen years I have been going in and out at the old south door, but they have been such busy years and have disappeared so quickly that I was startled at the suggestion of the editor that I indulge in a few reminiscences for Thenadafys. They have all seemed so fresh and so real that I had thought of the-in only as Nowadays. It has really semed one long day. And yet, how utterly changed is everything since that day in April, '82, when I followed the Regents- up the steps and into the assembly-room to. be introduced to the students as their new President. Poor things! In their ignorance they gave me a generous welcome, little suspecting 'the dire experiences in store for them with the opening of the new administration. They all sat behind -regulation desks, and with heads erect and arms folded, listened attentively to the few words of greeting in which I told them of the thrill of pleasure it gave me to look into their beautiful and interesting faces. Before leaving the city, I heard that the boys and girls, as well as the Regents, were much gratified at the "brevity and appropriateness" of the address. That was my first crumb of comfort. To acquaint myself with the Kansas educational system, I accepted the conductorship of the Lyon County Institute, so kindly oiered me by Superintend- ent Wharton. The afternoons were usually spent at the Normal Building, dreaming and planning. The summer had been cool and pleasant, but a few days before school opened, a dry, scorching, hot wind crept up from the south, and in a week the life was burnt out of every sprig of grass and every green thing in sight. Students were coming in for whom I was tramp- ing the streets' to find boarding-places, and I had ample opportunity to discover how, helpless I was before the pitiless simoon of that awful week. The new year opened with a slight increase in the enrollment, which comforted me greatly. The whole building was but half furnished, however, several rooms in the basement were without iioors, some were without any furniture whatever, and a few rickety chairs huddled together on the bare floor at the front in each of the two society halls suggested ire rem- nants and poverty. Though the Legislature of '76, in a mood of anti- normalphobia, in which it abolished the other State Normals, had actually enacted a provision that no ap- propriations should ever be made to the School, we succeeded in getting a grant in '83 of nearly six thou- sand dollars to floor the basement rooms and make some other needed improvements. In '85 the appro- priation exceeded that amount by a few hundred dol- lars. The rapid growth in the enrollment gave me courage to ask for a new wing in '87, but it was only after an hour's earnest pleading that I succeeded in getting the promise of the president of the Board of Regents to help get it. He thought it an impossibility until he found his friends in the Legislature ready to line up for the bill. Judge Kellogg, now secretary of our Board of Regents, was at that time a State senator. After hearing my glowing story of the prospects in the House, he said, with a smile: "You get the bill through the House and I will get it through the Senate." I knew from that minute that we would win. He kept his word, and how the boys and girls did celebrate on the final passage of the bill! A big jollincation meeting in the assembly-room, with ap- propriate musical improvisations, big talk from big men who had lent a hand, a big bonfire in front of the campus, with the ire patrols in big red caps flank- ing the revelers, with no end of clatter and yells told how glad everybody felt that we were "getting out of the wilderness." .. When we swarmed out into the new Wing in Feb- ruary, '88, we seemed to have enough room to last a century, but in two years the hive was again full. We sought to enlarge the old assembly-room and to erect a gallery. Thanks to a kind Providence and the Populist party, we were denied relief in that way, and in '93 had grown large enough and bold enough to ask for the east wing. A thousand students startled their neighbors on their Way home with the shout: "A new wing and a new assembly-room for the State Normal School!" The campaign was successful, and the poets and boniires and tin horns on the drill ground west of the campus expressed our joy in a iit- ting manlner. In the meantime, our appropriations for current expenses were growing larger each year, and the appropriation for the new boiler-house and Gym- nasium in H99 did not seem much of a sum after all. "To him that hath shall be given." The appro- priation of 360,000 for the new Library Building last winter shows what a great place the institution has taken in the confidence and aiection of the people of the State. The Library of '82 was in the small room taken by the present corridor between the Eeast Libra- ry and No. 48. It was made up of remnants' of three libraries, and was chiefly remarkable for the books it did not contain. The librarian, a jolly entertainer, usually managed 'to keep students from going there to study by entering into a heated argument over the virtues of greenbacks and fiat money, a proceeding that iinally yielded gracefully to'the new order of things. Since that time politics has found little place in the Li- brary or anywhere else in the institution. The Legisla- ture allowed us a few hundred dollars each year to make additions to our Library, until in 1895 we were made glad by an appropriation of 56,500 for books, Some of the friends suggested that the Legislature had made a mistake, but we are sure that it knew exactly what it was doing. We shall expect it to do even better than that when the shelves in the new Library Build- ing are in place. Our system of entertainments has become a great feature of the School. For years We had depended upon an occasional lecture and the spasmodic lecture courses in the city. In the fall of '89, with some hesi- tation, I proposed to the Faculty and students that we organize a joint stock company with shares at one dollar each to provide a winter's course of lectures. Over three hundred shares were taken in iive minutes, and Professor Wilkinson was appointed chairman ot the managing committee. In a confidential way, I learned that our dividends would be about sixty-nve cents apiece, and quietly suggested to some of the members of the literary societies that they anticipate its payment by getting their members to donate their profits, when announced, to the treasuries of their respective societies. In that Way, each society re- ceived a neat little sum, and was pleased to appoint one of its members to represent it on a joint commit- tee from Faculty and societies to- manage such courses in the future. Like nearly everything else attempted on the Normal Ridge, they have been great successes from the first. There was just one little, lorn piano in the building in '82, and the two societies managed in some way to get small organs for their halls, which furnished melo- dious music when they could get anyone to play on them. When they had scraped up enough money to make the iirst payment on a piano, the School bought the organ belonging to the Literati Society for use in the Gymnasium, and some unfortunate country church paid a. fabulous price for the wheezy instrument over in the Lyceum Hall. I think a member of the present Faculty conducted the negotiations, and am sure that he could soon mane a fortune in running a second- hand store. These sales, with the sum of fifty dol- lars allowed each society by the Regents enabled them to pay cash for their pianos, and every boy in the institution put on his best suit and brought his best girl to the grand opening that followed. It was a great occasion for music atlthe State Normal, and as I now pass through the building, hearing the four- teen or more pianos responding to the touch of earnest stud-ents and accomplished players, I must be per- mitted to maintain that they do not give me greater pleasure than did those pioneers on that memorable night. We Were unable to find students every hour who could play that old Literati organ for us in the Gymnasium, and so purchased an orchestron equip- ped with a number of popular airs. It was turned by hand, and ground out the marches like a hand corn- sheller. That machine-music put a new life into the calisthenics for awhile, though it was almost as dif- Hcult to get someone to keep it moving in proper time as to play on the organ. When Professor Stone came, she asked for a piano, and there happened to be just enough money left in the fund to get it. This recalls the calisthenics drill of '82. After devotionals or after recess, Professor Davis, the' direct- or, would take the platform, and calling alternate rows of students to their feet, would put all of them through a lively course of exercise that sent the blood agoing rapidly. It was a beautiful sight to see the whole assembly-room responding in graceful unison to his quick, sharp commands. One day, however, Regent Crichton called my attention to the serious swaying of the building under the tread of so great a company, and conhrmed my fears of its dangers. The plan now in vogue was then adopted, and students afterwards took their work in calisthenics in the Gym- nasium during their vacant hours. ' We have had many delightful visitors during the past twenty years, but I think non-e of them has given us greater pleasure than Herr Bille, the Danish Consul, who visited us some time in '83, He was a courtly gentleman and a man of generous learning and world- wide acquaintance. In introducing him, I mentioned several of his distinguished fellow-countrymen, among them Hans Christian Andersen. This proved a happy mention, for in his response, he spoke most charmingly of his intimate personal relationship with Andersen, and waxed eloquent over his many excellent qualities and brilliant gifts. He expressed his great joy that his friend "is so highly esteemed away out in this center of the great American continent." Sidney Lanier was o-nce looking at a great field of red clover, when suddenly it all seemed to be in motion, and in po-etic vi-sion he saw the Course of Time coming toward him, the clover heads marching slowly along with here and there one towering above its fellows as the great souls of the race have risen above their contemporaries. In the increasing throng coming before me in this reminiscent mood to-night, I recognize not a few only, but many whose brilliant intellects and noble natures won them exalted places among us, and who left us fragrant memories of their unswerving devotion and sympathetic cooperation. To tell all about a single one of them would carry me far beyond my allotted space. One characteristic of them all, however, Whether in the ranks or in leadership, is just as marked now in this life-picture as in the days- when they were touching elbows with us as We passed up and down the halls-intense ear- nestness and lofty purpose. This retrospect calls back the faces of others who were in nearer and more confidential relationship dur- ing those selfsame years, my associates in the Faculty and in the Board of Regents. There were nine mem- bers of the Faculty in '82, and in adjoining ourselves to each other, we found much in common. Our differ- ences were honest differences, and consequently but helped us to 'rind the truth. The rapid increase in the enrollment and the larger mission opening to the School demanded much forethought and anxious plan- ning. Many things that have conspired to make the School strong and vigorous, and are now taken as a matter of course, were inaugurated by us with fear and trembling. One of the first problems we undertook to solve was the advancement of the standard for entrance and graduation: The two years' or "common school" course was abolished in '83. That course 'was supposed to be a drawing card. The Class of '82 contained forty-four members, the Class of '83 numbered thirty-six, and with the assurance that the Class of '85 would hardly be half as large if the common school course was abolished, it took a great deal of courage for a new administration to do it. The very nrst graduating class under the new rule dropped down to eighteen, but the next rose to thirty-three, and finally went away be- yond the hundred mark. All of those nine teachers except myself engaged in other work within a. dozen years, and some of sainted memory have entered into rest, but a true history of the growth of the State Normal School will not omit their important services.

I got a cattylog and learned all the big bugs by heart 'and lots of the little bugs too. As I was goin' up the Walk I saw a little man with some kind of a thing that looked like an eave spout wi-th a glass in each end, set upon three legs. I saw him squintin' thro' it and, as he had glasses on his nose I thot maybe he was near-sighted so I asked him what he was lookin' for. He said he was tryin' to locate the Normal. I told him Where it Was, but he wouldn't believe me. I didn't care, so I went on up to I 1 K 1' A QV?2ff Katja' 3' 1 11,7 Ji. pil f . 4977! rl-3 'ziffwf I.- M ' -:1'!p' 19 .l F is I' n ,l 44,5 Young man, Pm trying to locate the Normol. the Normal and knocked on the door, but no one came.

I knocked two or three times and some one on the inside yelled to come in, and I opened the door and there stood a fel- ler in a cage. I told him I felt sorry and asked him -17- what his name was. He said it was Newman. I told him I was sorry for what he had done and would try to get him out. There was a little hole to put food through, but in spite of that hole's bein' there, he didn't look very fat, so I 'm goin' to try to get him out to-morrow. I asked him what that feller was doing down in' front and he said he didu't know, and that you couldn't always tell, for he Was the figure-head of the Normal. I got in line to see the President.

While I was -15- there he refused to give one girl somethin' and re- marked that "nothin' but forty weeks goes here." I-Ie sent me over to a Miss Whitbeck. She sat there drummin' her Hngers on a funny little thing just to pass away the time. She asked me for iive dollars. I didn't consider it very good music and I did think she was a little high, but I remembered what you said, paw, about not appearin' green, so I paid it and she gave me a. piece of paper and sent me down to a Miss Milligan who said to show up at 8:10 to-morrow. So I started out to look around. I Went out into a hall and saw a feller bossin' a lot of other fellers that had clothes-brushes and broom-sticks. One of 'ern told me his name was C. A. Boyles. I thot it ought to abeen C. A. Freckles, but he knows better'n I do. They s-ay, and in fact it is even rumored that he will lock you in or out of the Normal just wherever you happen to be at 6 o'clock. Says its Hirresipelas to him." He was purty tall and slim except about half- way up and looked like he wanted a fight, so I went into the gym-something, and while I was a standin' there a. lookin' at a feller turn summersets 'n things, another teller named Carney jumped up into the air and caught some rings and pulled his feet way up into the air, and then dropped 'em like a Sledge on my head. Coarse I couldn't blame him for droppin' 'em, but say, maw, do you remember when I fell on the ice? That same funny feelin' came over me. When I came to, there was a lady' standin' over me, sayin', "Fours forward, halt!" Some one said she was rattled, but I guess not. I went over to another room and saw a perfessor named Abbott drawin' some queer lookin' things on the board and tellin' 'em how to make things in mud. Say, maw, they's purty, too. I saw a feller goin' into a room with a number on it in yaller. He was the teacher of funny things in position at a desk in a room filled with maps and things. I asked him what he was doin' and if he was waitin' for somebody. He said, naw, he was tryin' to write some poetry. He turned round real sudden and opened a. door back of him and says, "Where's the fire?" I didn't smell the smoke. Purty soon there wasn't so much noise in that next room. He turned wan 5' to me and says: EW 1 e ' K I r "W fr i .V 'ig H J J W4 ' " ' 'f ' if-' eh,-e il He went to illustrate a drawing. nature.

HE graduates of the State Normal do not be- long to fraternities, yet the fraternal spirit of the Alumni Association is an iniluence that yearly brings back many of them. The past two years have witnessed a revival in interest among the mem- bers of the Association. In '99 a plan for special reunions of the five-year classes was formed. The next year the classes of '70, '75, '80, '85, '90, '95 held special reunions, at which many were present. The programme at the open meeting of the Asso- ciation was made up largely of speeches and mu- sical numbers by members of these classes. About two months before Commencement, someone in each class was appointed by the President to write letters to each ,member, telling of urging attendance at the exercises ment week. Room 56 was Htted up room, and a. committee was always .every former graduate truly welcome. will be followed the present year, and the classes which will, in addition to the general grand reunion, hold special reunions of their own are '76, '81, '86, '91 and '96. During the past two years mid-winter meet- ings of the resident Alumni have been held at Emporia. this plan and of Commence- as a reception- there to make The same plans .J-.37- This winter the matter of a permanent Alumni build- ing Was discussed and a committee consisting of Pro- fessor J. H. Hill and Mrs. G. W. Newman appointed to consider the matter further. With but slight in- dividual expense the many hundreds of graduates could erect a building near the Normal which would be a suitable reception hall for visiting Alumni. With the help of the four literary societies, a handsome structure la-rge enough to contain halls for the meet- ing-place of each society could be erected. The ac- comodations would far surpass those now enjoyed by the literary societies, and in helping to erect this build- ing each member would also know that he was helping to establish a permanent home for the Alumni Asso- ciation, of which a large portion of each society finally becomes members. In '98 the officers were: President, H. Edward Malloyg Vice-President, E. E. Salserg Recording Secre- tary, Jennie A. Whitbeckg Corresponding Secretary, Elva Clarkeg Treasurer, Ellen Plumb.

An important change has been recently made in the plan for obtaining life membership. Instead of ten dollars, the membership fee is now live dollars, and all who had formerly paid ten dollars had the difference refunded to them when the change was made. Up to the present date there are just thirteen hun- dred Who have received the Normal diploma in one or more courses. This does not include the present class. 'Of this number about sixty are life members of the Alumni Association. - i ,9,0::' , ,, :Eat i i' -23- cLAss or as 'f .I sf 1 W I fx I -30- The Oratorioal Association. HE Oratorical Association, as a feature of the intellectual and combative training of the in- stitution, has no parallel. Originally organ- 'zed to further the interests of higher literary work, o create an interest in oratory, and to take part in the contests for the Interstate League of Normal Schools, its purpose has been most faithfully fulfilled. Higher literary work has never received more atten- tion than from the members of the various classes of the past few years. Poets, orators, embryo novel- ists, future journalists, essayists and philosophers have sprung up among us. Their pens have won them much local fame, and who shall say but that in future years the Kansas Normal shall provide a new galaxy for the literary firmament. At present they still thrive prosper, the wonder and admiration of friends schoolmates. the Interstate League Kansas has taken no dis- 'able place. She may well review her record with t pride. At the first contest, held in Warrens- bu-,,, Mo., May 7, 1897, Mr. Ira J. Bradford represented Kansas and won second place. With characteristic modesty Kansas was unwilling to render herself con- spicuous in the beginning. The next year the con- test was held in Albert Taylor Hall and Kansas, in courtesy, took for herself the lowest .place that the visiting States might not return home unhappy. In '98, convinced that modesty and extreme courtesy had held hier long from revealing her real power, Kansas sent forth the winning orato-r, who triumphantly won first place, and returned amid a chorus of yells and songs that caused Illinois and Missouri to rub their eyes and stare. Ah, in those days were great rejoic- ings! The name of Allen TL St. Clair shall be pre- served in song and story through many generations of students. He is the man who shall head a list of glori- ous victories. In '98 Miss Anna Patterson was sent to Iowa., winning third place, and in '99 Miss Mary B. Martin to Wisconsin, but Kansas fortune was at low ebb, and the sunflower came home with drooping head. Fifth place wasn't so bad, perhaps. It was only a case of mistaken judges. Thisyear Miss Iva E. Pur- dum, the most gifted of the student poets, won first place in the local oratorical contest, and was sent to Warrensburg, Mo., where she took second place. But not alone is our oratorical power exerted among our sister States. Tht Oratorical Association, in its local meetings, gives its members a training which should fit them for future debates in Congress. The people who have yelled themselves hoarse in shouting for the candidates of their respective societies, take a short breathing space after the contest, gain a new supply of vocal power and set their voices to a new use. Now comes the formation of deep, dark plots, everybody looks mysterious, whispers of coalitions are rife, but all rumors are unsubstantiated. The day of the Oratorical Association meeting arrives. Delegates are to be elected to accompany the orator. No. 44 is crowded to the doors, and excited and perspirinig stu- dents gasp for breath at open windows. The major- ity side looks happy, the minority correspondingly miserable. Could Room 44 speak, what tales could it not tell! This year wh-en the Association was called to order by Acting President Hartsock, both sides looked ex- pectant. At the last moment all the deep, dark plots were unearthed. The School stood astonished. The Literati and the Lyceum Societies had formed a coa- lition, a thing unknown and never before thought of. Together they were invincible by force of numbers, un- less in some way checkmated by the allied Belles and Philos. A master-move was prepared by these latter, but could not be put into execution, because the ma- jority sid-e voted an adjournment. Another meeting called was adjourned by the President, because its object was not stated in the call. Caucus followed caucus. The opposing factions withdrew to opposite sides of the room an-d invented yells to suit the occa- sion. Songs were sung. Excitement ran high. At last the meeting was again called to order, and again the minority attempted to have its new members voted ing again their master-move was checkmated. Suddenly the minority supply of patience became exhausted, and following their leaders, they indignantly adjourned to Room 12. Delegates were elected in both places, and the way prepared for the stormy meeting which fol- lowed in April. This time President Blood called the meeting to order. Determination, grim and unalter- able, was written upon the faces of all. Mr. Ward, of the Lyceum, was the first speaker and- breathed forth a spirit of brotherly love through ea ten-minute oration, prolonged by frequent interruptions from the oppos- ing factions, whose members were continually rising to points of order or questions of personal privilege. Mr. Ward advocated compromise, and gracefully ad- vised the majority to yield anything save the point contended for. He talked much of the "thunderbolt" which had launched itself into Room 12, and solemnly declared that man is a dual being, which astonishing piece of information was received in absolute silence by the audience, and elicited the advice from the Presi- dent that the speaker confine his remarks to his sub- ject. This the gentleman did, and proved that man in his dual nature had made the previous division pos- sible and now a peaceful reunion probable. Mr. Car- son, growing impatie-nt, rose to a question of personal privilege and inquired, "Mr. President, are' we here to transact business or are we here to be bored by a lengthy speech ?', "For the present we are to be bored," announced the President-but we were not. The discussion was led on one side by Messrs. Car- son, Brown, Powell, Bruton, Kelsey, McGinnis, and Wyantg on the other by Messrs- Ward, Mulliken, Brookins, I-fuffman, Hartsock and Durham. The battle waged fiercely and long. At length folded her white wings and perched once more on the a compromise was agreed upon, and the matter placed in the hands of a committee. The Association met a K. N. banners. The delegates were even y societies, and the School shouted, "Union for 1 apportioned among the four week later and adjourned without accomplishing its ever!" "Ho, for Warrensburg and first places" purpose. At last the eommittee reported, and peace 1+ ul we , .

This marks the date of one of the victories for the old gold banner. There have been other days just as great, but none so genuinely, hilariously, supremely successful as an all-around great day. When the time came to consider what musical delegation to send to the Interstate Oratorical Contest at Warrensburg this year, Prof. Butler's Mandolin Orchestra easily became the favorite of the School, and after two months steady labor in the way of preparation, the Orchestra reaped a reward in the cheers of a delighted audience at Warrensburg that greeted them after every number. The double quar- tette chosen from the Euridice and Orpheus Clubs, re- inforced by the delegates sent by the Association, won round after round of applause for the humor- eus and musical presentation of our side of the case in a number of topical and characteristic original songs. The Simpson Quartette, in company with the Orchestra, was also kindly received. The Emporia delegation of eighty-five, and our baseball team, left our city over the Ottawa Branch at seven o'clock on the morning of May 9. Pandemo- nium broke loose as soon as the car-wheels began to roll, and continued Iwith the exception of the hours between 1 and 4 o'clock on Saturday morning, the 11th.J till the arrival home on the afternoon of May 11. At Ottawa the ball team was left behind, confident of a victory over the Ottawa University team. The rest of the party went on to Warrensburg, arriving there at four in the afternoon. At Kansas City a car- load of Minnesingers from the Iowa Normal were coupled onto the rear of our car, and when the two delegations left the train at Warrensburg, the brass band that came to meet them was silenced by a'roar of college yells. The entertainment was in the main good, but it was not what the friends in Missouri had intended to give. They had planned a treat for the delegations in the way of entertainment by caring for them at the Pertle Springs hotels just south of the city of Warrensburg, but the persons responsible for getting the hotels ready failed to complete their Work. Friday morning all the delegations were invited to join the home school in their chapel for a. general ratiiication rally. Here Kansas shone. After the opening ,exercises one person from each school was called upon for a sho-rt talk. Miss Marsland's re- sponse for Kansas was the best talk of the morning, and every Jayhawker present was proud of our teacher of oratory. After these speeches, the Minnesingers from Iowa gave the audience a sample of superb male chorus Work, and after the storm of cheering sub- sided, the rally was turned over to Professor Butler. The Orchestra and Chorus filled the hall with music for two hours, and the success of the Kansas sup- porters was amply attested by the unstinted applause. About noon the ball team arrived to tell how they won the game at Ottawa at the rate of 12 to 6. The programme for the afternoon was the ball game between the Missouri and Kansas teams, and an excursion to Pertle Springs. Before the game began, rumors were in the air of a wonderful pitcher with the Warrensburg team that could not be hit. "Why," said the Missourians, "he struck out seventeen men the other day in one game!" The game began at 3 o'clock in a fast and furious fashion. Kansas scored one in the second inning and again in the fourth, Missouri scored once in the fourth inning and twice in the fifth. In the sixth, three men went down on each side Without a scoreg the Warrensburg fans were becoming hilarious, and the faces o-f the Emporia boys began to show a growing determination to win. In the seventh the old gold aggregation hit the famous Thomas for six runs, and then went out to the field and retired the other side in forty seconds without letting a man get to iirst. In the eighth inning Kansas scored again. In the ninth Missouri, with two men out, got two men on bases, when Thomas made a drive over left-field fence for a home run. Neither side scored after this, and the game closed, Kansas, 9, Missouri, 6. The game over, the cars for Pertle Springs iilled, and a merry crowd spent an hour at this pleasant summer resort. At 8 o'clock the assembly hall began to nll with a throng eager for the great event. The program for the evening was as follows: PROGRAM. Invocation .......... . ..... Rev. W. C. Coleman.

While waiting for the decision of the judges, the Minnesingers sang five songs, and after each song the audience cheered louder than before, and Iowa became extremely popular. The Kansas Quartette were called for, and they sang two numbers. The decision of the judges was now ready, and M. I. Roberts, President of the League, won the esteem of a thousand people by reading the report without any comment. Begin- ning with the last irst, he read, Iowa, Missouri, Illi- nois, Kansas, Wisconsin. The decision seemed all right to us, and the Kansas yell filled the house and the Kansas crowd filled the stage, while Miss Purdum, of Kansas, perched high on a chair and Mr. Kline, of Wisconsin, perched on our shoulders, were carried up and down the stage in irrepressible glee. In the absence of the Wisconsin delegation, Kansas yelled for both orators. This tale would not be complete with Professor Payne left out of it. This jolly man followed the dele- gation about eight hours late, arriving in Warrens- burg at midnight Thursday. Not knowing where the Kansas headquarters were, he went to another hotel. He turned over to the porter his grip with about fifty dollars worth of goods in it. Friday afternoon he called for his grip and was given a grip that was not his own, though very much like his. After an indig- n-ant time, he learned that a traveling man had his grip and had gone to a neighboring town. The dis- comnted hotel proprietor immediately dispatched a man to this town to reco-ver the grip or die. It has been reported that the recovery was made, but it has been discredited as idle- rumor. The Professor told us on the side that he had a borrowed Smith and Wesson six-shooter in the grip, "a dandy new one, worth sixteen dollars." This he brought along to show the Missourians. i " Q kg, , 'O' 4 . ,ef 4' 1 I ,kk-. , Q . Q I . Cas -36- , F' , D ,,"'s.v.:4 .

Why do you say that the spring-time is coming? Is it the blue in the sky? Is it the whispering breezes of twilight? Why do you say?-tell me why. Why do you think that the summer is coming? Is it the soft sunny glow? Is it the murmuring brooks in the meadow? How do you know?-do you know? Not from the depths of the azure above me, Not from the song of the streamg Not from the color of clouds in the heaven, Not from the sun's golden gleam.

In years previous the musical clubs and organiza- tions of Kansas State Normal have been much like those of some of our sister schools-it has been a sort of farce. But with Professor Butler came a change, and the young people have taken a lively interest in orchestra Work. Professor Will George Butler is a man of distinct personality, as well as a man of marked ability. He not only has the technique of his profession at his command, but he has what so many directors lack- the art of making his rehearsals interesting and at- tractive. He has his degrees from Corning. Among his teachers are such names as J. C. Bostlemann, Hamlin E. Coggswell, S. E. .Tacobsohn and others. He has ever been popular among the students, be- cause he has their interest at heart and always plays on their programmes when asked, if he can possibly do so. No better tribute to him can be paid than to say that he has shown himself willing. His composi- tions prove his ability. Among the various organizations receiving his at- 40- tention as director, are the Normal School Orchestra and the Cecilian Mandolin Orchestra.. The latter is the only mandolin orchestra that the institution has had that has been very popular. Hard drill and good instruction made them exceedingly pop- ular during the last of the year. They were sent as part of the large delegation to Warrensburg, Mo., where they gave a concert to a large audience. They number in all twenty-eight people, including players of mandolins, guitars, piano, violins, Bute, bass-vlol, cello and traps-. One of the hardest, elements to overcome in a club of this number is that ot bad and indifferent instru- ments. The directior succeeded, however, in bringing into his clubs good instruments. The Cecilian Orches- tra gave a number of concerts in surrounding towns. The violin orchestra had its busiest life early in the school year. With the advance of the popularity of the mandolin orchestra came the decease of the vio- lin orchestra. The Music Department has been very successful this year and the String Band Department very pop- ular since Professor Butler has taken it in charge.

HE Mogul sways his scepter from his cush- ioned chair at the head table, his jolly Knights sit 'round attendant at the spread, regaling their souls with story, song, or game, happy hours drive away dull care, and store the mind with rich, rare, rosy memories. Fraternal bonds of friendship grow among the Knights, sworn to help each other when opportunity shall offer. Dark night has fallen,and gathered in some Knight's abode, the happy tramps- give greeting. Up go thc lights, down come the window-shades, and down comes the Mogul's list upon the table. "Attention, Knights, while for brief space thelntercessor has the floorf' The Intercessor done, Most-Hi-Rest brings greetings from fair ladies, at which welcome words every mother's son of them rises to his feet and loudly blesses the day The ,Most-Hi-Rest became a K. of R. Then Chief of Tramps recounts the incidents of his wanderings since last they met, and weaves many a tale for eager ears. Now as the night wears on, a hungry, gnawing makes each man feel his stomach, and with lusty calls they rap the table andxbid the mighty Commissariat bring on his viands. At this the swarthy giant girds himself and serves a banquet iit for gods and men, while Chef de Booze pours from the ripe-brown jug the clear, bright, amber stream of sweetest cider, and, toasts are drunk all 'round. Chancellor of the Excheq- uer settles the bill, and the Knights settle down to more serious discussion. Communications from the Foreign ambassador are read and approved, and the Chancellor gives the lat- est report from Advance Agent for Puck, "that merry wanderer of the night." The Knights report the lat- est deal in "rich" hay, and reckon the pro-fits of the last raid into the land of the Great Chief of Normal- domg how many hours of sleep the great chief lost, the K. R.'s won, or in his dreams how K. R. night- mare turned his dark locks gray. - From chief to landlady then the tide of conversa- tion turns, and grievous tales are told of thundering noises in the upper rooms, of creaking chairs and breaking beds and trembling floors, while sturdy men do wrestle 'round the room till housetops seem almost to topple and fall in. And then come stories of wars on neighboring Orders, of fair Helens borne off to the Plains of Troy. And once the story went 'round that our brave Commissariat made off with eight lovely maidens in his mighty grasp when, like Sampson of old, he listened to their honeyed words and showed them where lay the secret of his power, and was led away to a dark dungeon and there bound and given a poison draught and left to die. But strength re- turned into his limbs, and he burst his binding cords and rushed into the open air, and threw off the venom from his system, found one of his fellows and made speedy reparation for the wrongs he suffered. And now, their stories told, this band of tramps mingle their locks with close-drawn heads, new plans to make, new antics td put on, to harrow up the souls of mortals, freeze young blood, and make the hair of the belated to stand on end while Erebus with his shades guards 'round about. The morning trains begin whistling in, and the K. of R. quietly seek their couches and give themselves over to sleep, filled with dreams of fried chicken and mince pie. The Kansas-Nebraska Debate. The Alpha Senate introduced a new thing into the school life here last year. A debate was arranged with the Nebraska State Normal, at Peru, Nebraska, which took place Friday evening, May 11, and resulted in a unanimous decision in favor of the Kanfsas boys. Our representatives Were J. G. Masters, F. W. Balcomb and A. W. Mulliken. They presented the argument on the aflirmative of the question, "Resolved, That the United States Government Should Construct, Own and Con- trol an Isthmian Waterway." - Our debaters were accompanied by Mr. Ise and Mr. Felter. The party arrived in Atchison, on the way to Peru, and found a convention of the State Drummers' Association- and a State Sunday-school convention in session. The boys spent a few hours in the city be- tween trains, and Charles Ise seemed to be managing the delegation. As they Were on parade, the people of Atchison were heard to inquire, "What is that drum- mer doing With those Sunday-school boys?" Of course, Mr. Ise resented the suggestion that he Was a drummer and there might have been trouble, had not the "Sunday-school" boys poured the oil of peace on his troubled spirit. However, the boys arrived safely in Peru and were gratified by the reception given them. They could not say enough in praise of the Nebraskans. Nebraska was invited to send her debaters to us this year and come along with them. A debate has been arranged for in Albert Taylor Hall, Thursday evening, May 23, 1901. Our debaters are Mr. McGinnis, Mr. Daniels, and Mr. St. John. They present the nega- tive of the question, "Resolved, That the Aggregation of Individual Wealth in the Form Known as Trusts is Detrimental to Industrial Welfare." The debate is to be followed by a banquet and a general' good time. Another victory for Kansas is expected, but this mat.- ter goes to press too early to announce just how great a victory there will be. ' --48-- BIG SIX. What does this picture reuresent?

To Thee, 0 God, our hearts we bare, Because the sun, the birds, the air Do seem to whisper everywhere God doth care! God doth care! M. B. N. ATURDAY evening is the time of all the week that a fellow feels like calling his own and us- ing for his own pleasure. Yet it is on this very evening that four-fifths of the young men of the Normal are wont to close their books, Wipe their pens, lay aside their cares, and, with a friend or two for company, gather at "The Upper Room." This hall, occupying the entire second story ot William Allen White's new Gazette building on Mer- chant Street, has been 'tastefully Iitted up for the ex- clusive use of the Young Menfs Bible Class. The col- ors are quiet and harmonious. Copies of religious Paintings lend their uplifting iniiuence to the place. The name of "The Upper Room" itself, most happily chosen, has almost the effect of a consecration, as it calls to mind the sacred memories of the Last Supper and the Savior's final words to His apostles. In the library the boys have access to the best current liter- ature, besides standard and popular books of the high- est moral tone. The room is nicely carpeted and seated with folding chairs. A few' pretty tables, a divan and a, set of upholstered furniture serve both for use and ornament. The sweet tones of a piano give added attractiveness to the place and programme. The room is open from seven till ten Saturday even- ings, and from two till five Sunday afternoons. On the first Sabbath of the month the ladies visit the hall. Several times during the year, instead of the usual meetings there are social evenings, with programme and refreshments. The Class and its pleasant home are the result of the labor, care and self-denial of one man, our leader, Prof. T. M. Iden. It was at his invitation that, on the nineteenth of November, eighteen hundred ninety- eight, some thirty young men were present at the first meeting. Now over four hundred are enrolled, and it is the largest organization of the kind in the United States. ' The purpose of the Young Men's Bible Class is to give those who desire an opportunity to deepen and strengthen their moral and religious nature by the study of the Bible, particularly of Bible characters. This year we have studied the principal facts and inci- dents in the life of Christ, a timely subject indeed, for 1-51- our day, because, while We hear so often the gloriii- cation of our civilization, we hear at the same time far too little of the life and teachings of the One who alone made possible this civilization. The lessons are presented to the Class in the form of talks. Each boy receives a four-page leaflet, giving an outlined treatment of the next Week's lesson, a page of helpful, suggestive thought, and some brief, appropriate selec- tions of prose and poetry. But the strongest message of all is the New Year's letter, such a le-tter as comes but rarely in a lifetime. Our last letter was ten pages of cheering, stimulating counsel, beautiful sentiment and sincere longing for our truest happiness. A pre- cious, priceless freight it brought us-"the greatest thing in the World." A thousand young men, scattered all over the World, received this loving souvenir of their teacher's devotion, and, as they read, their hearts burned within them, touched by a coal from an altar celestial. The loyalty of the boys to their leader, though un- common, is but natural. He has the love and respect of every boy, because he proves himself a personal friend. Genuine interest speaks in the pleasant word, the smile of good-will, the keen and kindly glance, and the Warm, clinging hand-clasp of his greeting. Many a lad, a stranger to such hearty welcome, is at m5g... first confused, He has never thought himself Worthy of particular notice. But now he feels a magic touch that startles him. 'Tis a new and strange sensation suddenly to become con.scious of having a value. The lad begins to see what he is, what he may become. He resolves not to disappoint his teacher and deter- mines to deserve his regard. Thus many a purpose is formed, many a life made strong, many a soul prepared to carry "a message to Garciaf' The words, the life, the touch of a true Chris- tian, a real friend, a genuine philanthropist, an hon- est man are felt by every boy in the Kansas State Normal School. Prof. Iden moves among us as an equal, not a supe- rior, yet our allegiance is only more loyal. His Word of address to the Class is "Fellows," but it is easier to say "Sir" to him than to anyone else. With brighter eye, with prouder heart than Highland chieftan does our leader watch his mustering clan. "Ah!" he says, "They 're a fine set of boys." While they, when home- Ward bound, the benediction of his "good-night!" rest- ing upon them, confess to each other, "Dr, Iden 's all right. He 's what you call a good man." The boys of the Kansas State Normal School need not to go back to the middle ages to pay homage to a St. Thomas. flbemorial. PROFESSOR EVERETT E.

N increase of the known is an increase of the unknown: an increase of the area of light is an increase of the boundary of darkness. The more you know, the more you see you don't knowg hence large knowledge brings humility. This is why we, as a society, are not sailing in the vast realms of space, floating the ethereal blue in the pink tail of a lost comet, but stay on the earth welcoming into our midst the meek, the intellectual, and the pro- found. We cannot boast of age, bejeweled with the diamonds of victories won before others were on.the fleldg but we do feel. a certain humble pride in our record which began scarcely more than a half-score years ago. . Our society spirit has existed for years, but not until January, 1888, did this spirit see that the time was full wherein it should embody itself in a new society. So steps were immediately taken, and from the bud of effort blossomed the Belles-Lettres Society on March 4, 1888, with Miss Miller Maddox as the first President. The other Presidents of the first year' were Wm. Herrington, T. W. Campbell, and R. V. Smith, all of whom later became successful teachers. Hardly had the young Society realized that it had a separate existence when it was called upon to enter the essay contest, the first contest after its organiza- tion, and summoned the good-will of the Society to support the noble effort of Jno. T. Russell. The first prize was awarded to the Society, which until now had been considered' too young for victories, but our con- quests were not to stop with the first victory. In 1892 the prize essay was written by Miss Woos- ter, who has always remained a staunch Be11es-Let- tres. But our accomplishments were not- confined to fine writing alone, for in 1893 the Society won in Dra- matic Art. The prize was a beautiful lithograph, "Greek Education." The original, from Knill, is a fa- mous painting shown over one of the great arches at the German exhibit at the World's Fair. Miss Carrie Hall also won for us the prize in declamation that year. In 1894 our Dramatic Art contestants won for us "The Cherubs," by Tojetti. Steadily had we been rising in popularity and merit, but the next year 118951 we surpassed even' our own hopes when I. J. Bradford and G. W. Plumber won first and second place-also the decision of the judges --in the debate, and, as usual, the Dramatic Art Cast won the prize, an etching by A. M. Turner, entitled "Her Favorite Poet," while Miss Pigg added to the honors of the year by winning in declamation. Again in 1898 the immortal I. J. Bradford won the first prize, but this time his success was not to be confined to Kansas, but after winning- the laurels in the Oration Contest here, he took second place at the Interstate Contest held at Warrenshurg, Mo. His subject was "The 0rator's Place in History." Again did our de- baters, J. A. Cooley and J. H. Beach, carry off nrst and second honors in the debate. In 1897 Allen S. St. Clair won the prize in oration here 3 also flrst place in the Interstate Contest, subject, "Mission of Discontentf' He again appeared in Dramatic Art in 1898, and with Misses Hall and Kelson, Messrs. McConkey, Dickerson, and others, won a line reproduction of Abbey's famous decoration series in the Boston Public Library, enti- tled "The Holy Grail." In debate of 1898 second place was given to G. A. Brown. The same honors were given A. B. Stroup the following year. C. M. McConkey took first place in the debate in 1900 and second place in 1901. It has long been a settled fact that Belles-Lettres alawystake the prize in Dramatic Art, so no great surprise was shown when, in the spring of 1900, the "Belles" carried away to decorate their walls the painting, "Off Marble Head," by G. Powell Dayg and again in the fall the view of the "Coliseum," by Alma Tadema, went to keep company with the majority of the prizes. The other societies willingly gave us first place in essay, as all of the contestants were from our Society, Roy Hoover, Miss Georgia Reneau, and E. K. Harkness. We do not once think of letting our list of honors cease to grow, but year after year we mean to add new and greater trophies to our list. At present no other society can boast of four walls cov- ered with pictures, the trophies of many battles, as can the Belles-Lettres. We hope the next prize will be a statue, as we need one to place on the stage oppo- site the marble bust of Demosthenes, which was pre- sented to the Society in 1890 by Prof. M. P. Spencer. We have this year recarpeted the hall with a costly Axminster carpet and repapered the walls in the lat- est style, and now our hall is the most beautiful and homelike of any in th-e institution. But a beautiful hall is the least we possess. The rarest possession is that spirit which gives all a hearty welcome, makes all feel at home. Each opening year flnds the Society entering upon its work with renewed vigor. The spirit of mutual helpfulness -and heartfelt good cheer that pervades the room is contageous and ills the noble souls of those who call it home, with a zeal for greater personal effort, for a more united efort. New stu- dents, charmed by its power, rapidly fill the ranks made vacant by those who enter upon life's more seri- ous duties. The great literary en-gine of K. S. N., polished, clean and sound in eve-ry part, is moving steadily up the line. Its "headlight" is so strong that there is no need of puiling to herald its presence. The Belles'-Let- tres is "on the earth" to stay. In time all shall bow to it in submission. It is possible for it to make them do it, and the Belles will if you Lettrefsj. E. H.

Fair realms where sits Philosophy enthroned, Dispensing lavishly her richest gems From azure streams of Truth, to votaries, In whom are blended faith and humblenessg Where Science, meeker than Philosophy, Reveals the secrets and the laws of Nature, Where Oratory, on impassioned wing, Sublimely moun-ts and 'thralls the hearts of meng Where Music, ay, and all the Muses join In sweet accord to cheer the passing hour With song, and timbrel, verse, and mirthtul jest. 1 With great rejoicing sailed the gallant bark, With fifty fearless seamen, true and strong, And many were the friends to wave adieu, With sweet forecast of ultimate success. Propitious was the morn-. Sweet zephyrs played Athwart the deck, inspiring those who sat At stern and helm in flush of hopeful joy. Fair mornings followed each in rapid flight, When, lo, a change! A haze o'erhung the sea, Fierce storm-clouds rolled and cast'their dark'ning gloom, The Htful lightnin-g's baleful glare infused Electric lurid light in mad sea.-foam. A danger signal, ho! "Steer clear of yonder rock," Great Woodside shouts-the gallant ship is saved. Twice more heroic Woodside saved the bark From dark wave-caverns yawning for their prey. Though Captains Woodside, Culter, Gridley, Clark, 0'Connor, Dunbar, Thoroman, and Brobst, With perfect equipoise of nerve and brain, Preserved the ship from gaping sea-caves, yet, From all the storms she came not out unscathedg In some the masts were shattered, sails were torn, In some the helm was lost, and all but lost The shipg yet daringly she rode the sea, Withstood the buffeting of wind and wave , Till peace, and calm, and joy serenely smiled From azure vault and deep, a smile of hope. O noble crew, divinely led, divinely taught! That sail'st the sea of Knowledge, seeking Truth, No storm too fierce for thy enduring craft, No height too high for thy swift-winged mind To mount and pluck the starry secrets downg No stretch of sea too wide for thy life-line To save a. brother from a darkened strand, To place him in the warmth of Friendship's glow, To set upon his brow a star of hope, To lead him to the true ideals of life. What is thy future? Scan the vaulted skies, Behold the permanence of things divine, And read thy future. In the quest of Truth Infallibility -of purpose lies. Cast off the low and selfish taints of lifeg Let Hope, and Love, and truest Friendship shine From masthead, spar, and prow, across the sea, Illum'ning thy pathway toward the goal, Thy watch-word being "Sic tter ad astra," Such is the way to Immortality.

When this terrestrial ball had rolled onward -in its course, and September had again. appeared, she found Literati Hall crowded with enthusiastic Normalites, from highway and railway, short grass and metropolis, all anxious to become Literati.

So enthusiastic was the audienice that everything save the minutes was encored, even to the appoint- ment ot a committee on wall-paper. This one having been encored, another was appointed to discover the merits of rival music-boxes. fAn Emerson, found to be upright and fitted to the most cranks, was se1ected.J Verily, time doth git fffugitj, and Herr Mulliken next decorated the platform with his six feet Clinearb ff-1 X Q' 1 I x , it , "i 153 P Xxx 1 ' jfxxsl-.L I' czfirif ,S-,..asP-if of manly grace.

Our boys, to prove their advanced thought, decided that the momentous question: "Resolved, That ladies should have the right to propose," was at least debatable. Messrs. Pot- ter and Green, the towering giants of the Society, af- firmed the vexed question. Misses Steele and Beale vigorously denied that woman should do the seeking. The lady judges were unduly influenced by the piteous glances of the oft-rejected suitors and decided in favor of the aflirmative, with the proviso that their oppo- nents should demonstrate the "modus opeframl11." The fair Literatae then gave a programme. The ser- f " V Q: If , 4 X +I' ,gusirii I J l"L-u -V: '- lj,-,g,.dmcis. . Q13 P--gg. in .7 21-12-'r g figfw' " .Q I fi.

The fair ones gracefully leaned against the new paper and looked the words they could not utter-cl la gentlemen. The gallant girls, having broken the ice of the new admin- istration, President Phinney fR.S.V.P.J next took the chair, but did not succeed in escaping with it. Literati hearts beat high-aye, even three stories high-as the contest drew near. The twentieth of De- cember followed close upon the lecture, "Liquid Air." Puck was there, though invisible, hovering in air when the debaters began, but the warmth of the argu- ments of Messrs. Hartsock and Mulliken kept the tricky f 'gr 2,1 pf' 1 F X it s ul 1 5 . il' Xt?-A 9 sprite in check until the Fates wrote "victory" again in crimson letters. But alas! no sooner had the de- baters left the platform than Puck, finding some vials of Liquid Air, deftly emptied them over the hearts of the judges of Dramatic Art. Vain were the smiles of Pauline and the pleadings of Claude Melnotte. ,gh w 'Q infix: ll As the New Year rubbed the sleep from its eyes and climbed into the swing of Time, Miss Austin donned the badge of power and smiled authoritatively. In preparation for the coming contest, it was decided that we needed voice culture.

Mr. Phinney pro- tested "in the name of humanity," but the sergeants escorted them forward. CThe janitor gathered up a bushel of dropped notes.J higher than colors ever waved before.

The Belles were in this contest- until the decision was announced, and then Miss Mar- tin was an easy first, and the Belles were O, so easy! In the same contest Miss Wiley and Mr. Sommers won from the Belles-Lettres in Dramatic Art. My, what a crop of blue Belles there was!"

Those who were there Wil1,neVer forget the scene. Men cheered them- selves hoarse. Hats, canes and other dying debris 90- mingled in hopeless confusion. Women waved their handkerchiefs and wept for joy. Many Literati mem- bers had nervous prostration, while others tainted and had to be carried out. People even' forgot to 'keep to the right! 'The Lyceumites were all 'up on the carpet'-beyond the footlights. The only accident to mar the exuberance of the occasion was the fact that Mr. Brookens, the winner, had some of the already scant vegetation on the summit of his system scraped off as he was carried through a. door." But the bitter comes with the sweet. The laurel at times gives place to the Willow. So, in the oratori- cal contest of February, 1901, the victory wentfto the Literati camp. Were We discouraged?

The Measure of a Man. NYTHING is large or small, heavy or light, val- uable or worthless, just as it exceeds or is ex- ceeded by that with which it is compared. Measured by the elements of Nature, man rep- resents approximately one hundred and fifty pounds. He occupies less than three and one-half cubic feet of space. He is a, speck in his native city. He is lost in the map of his county or State. Where shall we look for him through that vast space through which our world swings? His life averages less than sixty years-a day in the history, a moment in the eons of Nature. Take the space of a man's life from geological records, its loss Will not be noticed. Time was old before the earth began, and time will still be young when the earth crumbles back into the sun. Compare man with time? He is too iniinitesmal. Even of his brief day of existence man may claim but the presentg every yesterday is gone and forever. To- morrow's legacy he can nev.er inherit. His strength is nothing. The sum of the world's energy is com- plete without his power. What is his feeble might in the breath of the hurricane, the rush of waters, or the crash of the thunderbolt? Fire and frost respect him not. Grim Gravity holds him in his grip just as relentlessly as he does other materials. He is amen- able to Nature's lawsg life, growth, death, he cannot change. He stands helpless before his fate. We have judged man as limited by law and Nature. Now reverse the relations and behold him limiting Nature and law. -103 Is man helpless amid Nature's forces? One hundred and iifty pounds, aided by reason, lifts twice as many the but the has tons. Give him a fulcrum and he will move world. Is it possible that' such a being occupies three and one-half cubic feet of space? Mention most remote location 'and while you speak he traveled thither. He has circled the globe. Yonder in frosty distance hangs Neptune. For ages the beams of his light have been traveling earthward. Name that planet, and man has made the journey there and back, passing and repassing those swift beams of light that have been ages on their way. Hang that planet on the outmost bounds of space, he can make the journey just as quickly, just as safely. Is man nothing compared to space? Space is nothing com- pared to man! Man limited by space is infinitesimalg man limiting space is innnite! Give man a moment of existence and he can live in any year or age that has been or will be. He faces back into the past, and the gray dawn of the earth's creation is present time. He turns toward the future, and beholds the creation of worlds yet to be-he sees the limit of time itself. He gathers the years together,-- time is but a spang man is infinite. I-le harnesses the winds. The mighty waters Work the treadmill o-f his shops and factories. The fettered thunderbolt carries his messages. All the chained forces of Nature are his slaves. The physical man is powerless. The reasoning mind approaches omnipotence. Man the creation is nothing. Man the creator is God-like. EDWIN K. HARKNESS. , In Good-by, little chillern, B Your muzzer has to go 5 She hates to Vleave her chillern, Because she loves them so.

It was a rude log affair, and the clapboard roof was held on by poles laid across it. A two-paned window in each side, and a three- paned window in one end, furnished light for the seventeenpupils. The slab desks had no backs-5 and rested on pegs, -which were driven into them. The teacher's desk necessitated his sitting with his back to the pupils, for it- was a board ntted in clefts of the logs in one corner of the room. His seat was a cross- section of a. lind tree, with legs like the desks. V. K. Stanley, who now lives at Emporia, taught the first term of school, during the spring of '56. These were the dark days of Kansas, when Slavery 107- and Anti-Slavery parties were striving for control of the State. The father of one of the pupils named Hiatt, was a member of the dreaded Kickapoo' Ran- gers. When the Border Ruiiians killed and scalped a man at the foot of Pilot Knob, Hiatt came after his son and took him out of the Anti-Slavery neighborhood. That evening school was stopped. A large band of Border Ruflians were camped two miles from the school-house, and the Border War had commenced. "I had good pupils," said Mr. Stanley, "and all were from intelligent families, excepting one Missouri boyg and although he knew nothing of books when he en- tered school, at the-end of two months he had read the First and Second Readers, and learned to write fairly well. Children in those days appreciated the opportunity for education." My Friends. When the glow of the evening is merged into twilight, And ilre-ilies flit by me with lanterns aglow, The scent of burnt grasses the breeze watts about me, Brings back a bright scene that I once used to know. A picture of spring-time in delicate colors- A scene we had dreamed of in long winter hours, When, childlike, we tired of our stories and music, And wished the great snowdrifts were banks of white flowers. I see the dear home and the freshly-raked dooryard, Again I rejoice in the glow of the sung And into the coop brother makes 'neath the peach-tree, I place all my fluffy White chicks, one by one. I The peach-tree.is laden with pinkest of blossoms- The blossoms we'd watched for since father had said While pinching in two a brownfbud with his lingers, "I guess that the peaches are not yet all dead." 'The scene slowly changes-a vision of summer- A vision of shadowy, tall maple trees- A swing in the shade and my playmates are swinging As free from all care as the birds or the bees. 108- Now Mattie is swinging, the others run under, . First Nora, then Cora, then Charlie, then I. "Ninety-eight," "ninety-nine," and then the "one dred," Then pushing is stopped and we let the cat die. hun- Still slower and slower the swing in its motion- At last it has stopped and the old cat is dead. The picture of summer dissolves into autumn, With leaves floating downward, all yellow and red. With brother and sister, I gather the apples, To store them awaypfor the long winter hours, The orchard resounds with our shouts and our laughterg Bright faces peep forth 'mid the branches, like flowers. But time is remorseless-again the scene changes- We stand by the window and watch the white snow Bend down with its whiteness the stately old pine-tree To look like our grandpa, with age bending low. Dear pictures of childhood! I ne'er can forget them. Kind reverie paints them again and again. Loved faces and scenes of the bright happy home-life, So full of the pleasure, so free from the pain. But Why do I dream of the home of my childhood? My playmates have scattered to East and to West. Our ways have been parted. Beyond the dark river One passed in his prime and now beckons the rest. v . The farm has been sold to the hands of ea stranger, New faces appear at the gate or the door, And little remains now to tell of the freedom And pleasure We felt in the good days of yore. "All gone, and all changed," did I say? No, ah, never! A score of old friends wait to welcome me home. And while they remain there to meet me and greet me, Strange lands and strange scenes will not tempt me to roam. Their kindly protection made happy my childhood, Whatever my mood, they were ever the same. Such lessons of beautiful constancy taught me To put all my waywardness fully to shame. Q And 'mong all the friends that are faithful and loyal No other more faithful and loyal than these. I know they will waive me the happiest greeting- - My dearest, my truest of friends-the old trees. ' The apple- and peach-trees will welcome my coming And give me of fruit or of blossoms a storey The shadowy maples and pines will protect me, And shelter me now, as they oft have before. Yes, deed the old home to the hands of a stranger, And send all my playmates across the far seasg Let strange faces smile at the gate or the doorway, But leave me my beautiful friends, the old trees.

The Normal is at last, getting in line with other great schools in this most im- portant department. This year marks a new epoch in the history of athletics at the Normal. The teams, although composed of young and inexperienced play- ers, have enjoyed a season of remarkable success. Under the new constitution of the Athletic Asso- ciation, which went into .effect the first of the year, the teams are managed by the students themselves, with a careful Faculty supervision. The Association is controlled by a board of directors composed of an equal number of students and the Faculty. There are seven' sections represented in the Asso- ciation. They are the football, baseball, tennis, basket- ball, golf, track athletics and boating sections. Each section elects a manager who represents the section in the board of directors. The section team elects a captain, who has charge of the men on the held and directs the play. The facilities for the advancement of athletics are greater than ever. The Mit-Way athletic grounds have come into the possession of the Athletic Asso- ciation. This gives the teams an excellent fleld for practice and play, and also furnishes seats for six hundred people. The new Gymnasium, with all its apparatus and baths, has created a growing interest in athletic sports. The regular calisthenics work of the School, under the direction of Miss Maudie L. Stone, is a basis of the work in athletics. Mr. Earl Carney, as director of heavy gymnastics and iield athletics, is accomplish- ing excellent results. The number taking work under his direction has been increasing throughout the year. The teams of the Normal which compete with other school teams are the football eleven and the baseball nine. In addition to these, there are the tennis play- ers, basketball teams, track team and the golf players. The "scrubs" in football and the "second team" in baseball are important in developing material for the regular School aggregations. These "scrub" teams are the running mates of the School teams, and by the sharpest rivalry they keep the iirst teams at their best. An interesting feature of this year's sport has been the basketball games between the Goblins and the Crickets, two girls' teams. The sharpest rivalry ex- ists between these teams, and every two weeks match- games are played in the main floor of the Gymnasium. Admission to these games is by tickets presented 'by the girls- of the teams. The gallery is always filled -112- by those interested in this sport. The girls' teams are managed by Miss Maud Brown. The boys teams arebmanaged by Professor Butler, and several good teams have been developed. Upon the diamond, the Normal has for- several sea- sons held first place among the schools of the State. The team of '01 is working hard to maintain the high standard of the School in this sport. A schedule- of games with the best teams in Kansas and Missouri has been, prepared, and with the cordial support of the students and town people, the players feel conlident of another season of success. The game which is most popular with the students is football, in which the Normal team is taking a high place among the schools of the State. With a team of beginners, our School has won from the famous K. U. team, which has for years been the winning team of the West. The only defeat for the team of '00 was at the hands for rather feet, teeth, et ceteraj of the Haskell Indians.

The generosity of Mit Wilhite in donating the Athletic Park to the Association and his help and encourage- ment in other ways has been an important factor in our success. More immediately the masterly coaching of John Lamb, of Princeton, with the spirit and faith- fulness of the players has brought the success of which the Normal is justly proud. -115- b 2. 1: ' 1 1 A Q x FOOTBALL TEAM. 1 Myers 2 Lamb. 3 Taliferro. 4 I.Turk1es0n. 5 Humes. 6 C.

"For the glory of God and the salvation of men." -123- OR years it was the custom of the students to hold prayer-meeting on Sabbath afternoon. These meetings were held in the Library or in some recitation-room. Soon after President Taylor took charge of the institution, a Young Men's Christian Association was formed. In order that the ladies might be active members, this society withdrew from the State Association in 1885, and changed its name to the Young People's Christian Association. In 1883 the room adjoining the Lyceum Hall was ntted up and the meetings were held in this place until the completion of the new wing. This room be- came too small for the meetings, so in 1888 Belles- Lettres Hall was set aside for the use of the associa- tion on Sunday afternoons. Desiring to cooperate with State and national or- ganizations in Christian work and to introduce more system into the local work, the association organized as a Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor January 30, 1889. The following officers were elected:- President, A. M. Bogleg Vice-President, Kate Bacong Secretary, E. R. Shepherdg Corresponding Secretary, Annie Willeyg Treasurer, E. E. Hench. The follow- ing committees were formed to assist the odicers in looking after the interests of the Society and the wel- fare of the students: Prayer-meeting, Missionary, Lookout, White Cross and White Shield. The Young Peoples' Society of Christian Endeavor. 124 Tho-ugh the programmes have varied somewhat through the years, the general plan of conducting the Christian Endeavor has .remained much the same. One particular feature of the Society is the holding of the meetings of the White Cross and White Shield. The leaders for these meetings are- always consecrated men and women who set before the students of the school the highest standard of a moral and religious life, and who seek to inspire them with a desire to live up to this standard. This year much attention has been given to book reviews. "Sky Pilot," "Black Rock," "In Darkest Eng- land," and "In Memoriam" are some of the books that have been studied. The relation that books bear to the religious life has been carefully brought out. From the date of its organization down to the pres- ent time, the Christian Endeavor Society has been a power for good in the school. Many young men and women, away from home for the first time, have come into the Sunday afternoon meetings, feeling that they are among strangers who care nothing for them, and have gone out, realizing that after all they are with brothers and sistersg that all of the many students here are children of one loving Father. In these meetings, too, many troubled souls have found peace and joy in Jesus the Savior. Chronicles of the2Juniors. And it came to pass that in the days of Mulliken, chief priest of the Senior Tribe, a great pow-wow was planned. And the sacred gymnasium was to be thrown open to the pets of His Majesty. And there should be food, drink, social pleasure, spooning and exclusive- ness in abundance. Now there dwelt in the land a tribe called Juniors, fresh, frolicsome, and frisky, and they, too, held a council. Then arose one of the elders and saith unto them: "The Seniors would hold a pow-wow, let us take their prophet and chief guys and carry them to the spot called Brewery and show them a warm time." And with one accord they answered, "So shall it bei, ' And on the appointed day it snowed, and the ardor of the Seniors was dampened. Yet the Juniors searched the Ward and raised Cain generally, and the prophet put on his shoes and came forth and walked with them. Then some Seniors ordered hacks and then sought flight from the house-tops, but the Juniors em- braced them and carried them forth in those hacks. Others fled to the garret and hid in the landlady's last week's washing, but were led forth in their turn. At Brewery the Seniors were gay, and would fain have Wallowed the Juniors. And there was among them a. mighty talker, aman fleet of foot, and he ran a. mighty run, and he came back famished. Then the 1 Seniors were led to the Feast of Abduction in Mit- Way, and sent on their journey rejoicing. ' And it came to pass that on Arbor Day the Seniors would fain have planted a tree, and they blew up greatly the glory of such an act and furnished music for the Juniors. The Juniors became so frolicsome and frisky that the Seniors wisely decided to sow the seed of a grass unknown. And while they were sowing, the Juniors came forth in great numbers and rubbed the seed into the mud and Water with the Seniors. The day ended, and there was peace that night. And again the Seniors would hold a pow-wow, and they so-ught shelter in the castle of the tribe called Faculty, but the President of the tribe drove them forth, and they besought him, saying: "We shall surely be kidnapped." Then came forth the President of the tribe called Faculty and called unto him the chief men of the Juniors and said unto them: "Verily, verily, I say unto you, unless you cease to pester the seed-sowing Seniors, you shall surely dunk." And they assured him they had long since declared a. truce. And the pow-wow was held, and they rejoiced greatly over the seed-sowing of the Seniors and the leniency of the Juniors. . But the end cometh not. Time moveth on, and many are the snarcs set for the feet of the Seniors, while the Juniors of '02 merge into Seniors andhleave the Juniors of '03 to proiit by the glorious struggle of their predecessors. 25- President ........

We, thc-SL-Seniors, about to depart from the shelter- ing Walls of our Alma Mater, turn to bid adieu to class- rooms and professors, to society halls, libraries and corridors, and while yet the sounds of chapel music and President Taylor's good advice linger in our mem- ories, we pause, 0 Juniors, and from the lofty sum- mit we have reached, let fall our mantle upon you. Wear it well. Remember the grace and dignity of the '01s. In humility remember that the tattered folds of this reverend mantle once adorned shoulders broader than yours, covered heads brainier than yours, that it has waved high in triumph over you. Close up the rents with reverent nngers. It- was not always large enough to cover us, and has sometimes been strained in the seams. But we have no fear that you will have diiiiculty in finding abundant room within it. Its folds are sufliciently ample for you. Take it and our blessing. Follow in our footsteps and go where glory waits you. Yet be not proud, be not puffed up. Remember that you were once Juniors, and remember that only vanity vaunteth itself and is proud. Now, while you adjust its folds to your lesser dimensions, we will review briefly the course we have run. That the Class of '01 would be an unusual one was patent to the most casual observer on the Faculty when as A's we astonished its members with our abil- ity in declamation on rhetorical day and of our own free will indulged in parliamentary wrangles. That was merely a strengthening of our sinews for contests to follow. The Professors in iirst-year subjects fre- quently fell back in their chairs and gazed in aston- ishment at the originality of thought and individ- uality of research displayed by us as first-year students. Professor Bailey-dear to the memory of the '01s- turned up his thumbs and gasped, "Oh l1orrors!!!" but never sufliciently recovered himself to take true aim with his chalk, and the scars on the blackboard healed. The story still lingers in the memories of some of the '01s of a day when the wise Professor invited a member of their ranks to take his departure from the class, because his fund of mathematical knowledge and discernment had reached such propor- tions that Professor Bailey trembled for the future peaceful possession of the chair of mathematics. When we entered the English Department, our well-beloved Professor of English smiled to see us come. She predicted great things of us when we should have overcome certain faults and shortcomings, which for the time being somewhat marred the bril- liancy of our rhetoric and detracted from the purity -159- of our diction. Some of our thoughts-potent with the might of intellect and musty with library smells- are preserved in the archives of the institution, tiled away in the columns of the "Monthly" and the "Oven," There too may be found pearls of verse-gems of lit- erature-bearing at the end the initials of some modest poet whose soul overflowing with music generously shared the thought beautiful with his fellow students after gentle urging and kind encouragement from Miss Jones. fits!! ' 'i" Not alone dfd we distinguish ourselves in Mathe- matics and English, Professor Wooster and Professor Iden still tell in Botany and Physics that former classes had no difliculty in mastering those outlines and formulae-they remember us. Professor Iden might be persuaded to show a book of original chemical re- actions, and formulae, and if some of the '01s were present, they would proudly exclalm, "We made them. We did that when we took Chemistry." On every hand the fact has been demonstrated that we have brains, and furthermore, that we use them. But not alone in intellectual fields have We gained glory. The Kansas State Normal stood a Quaker among her sister institutions in the field of athletics until the '01s came to the front. Such vigor of intellect must be balanced by vigor of body, and the athletic rep- resentatives of various institutions have stolen home one by one to nurse their sense of defeat and vow vengeance in future victories-not yet won- or some- times hobbled home too exhausted to exult over a victory so hardly won that it savored of defeat. We have been beaten? Yes 3 a few times. Have we won? Ayeg many times. Do our colors wave high? Yes: always. The '01s have led in every contest, s-tood in the thick of every fray. As Freshmen we distinguished ourselves as young men and women of promise, as Sophomores we fondly believed the promise was be- ginning to be fuliilledg as Juniors we were convinced that this was true. Oh, our glorious Junior year! How we shone! In the class-room the light offour genius still lingers. On the campus the green tree we planted spreads its flourishing branches above the green lawn. It attests our Arbor Day prowess. Never in the his- tory of the institution has so much class spirit been evincedg never did Juniors iight harderg never were Seniors more signally vanquished. The glory of our past shines forth in the splendor of the present. Our Senior year has but added to our reputation. We re- turned to our classes in the autumn, our eyes bright with the stern resolve to win the bit of parchment for which we have toiled long and wasted much oil. The Faculty had learned to cope with students' of such unusual mental power. All things seemed auspicious for a humdrum year of hard work. Like a quiet stream in a level land we should flow along the paths of learning with never a ripple or sound, Yet scarcely were we curbed within proper bounds before, like the water of the enchanted well, we began to effervesce and rising sought egress beyond confining walls. Our old love of debate and extemporaneous oratory as- s-erted itself, and the Senior meetings gave oppor- tunity for the display of forensic power. At the end of the first half-term we had a happy thought. We --lB0- ' would have a Senior drive. Though the skies were sullen and the sun wrapped himself in clouds of wind, the Seniors set out on that memorable ride to Patty's Mill. That evening, about blazing camp iires, we roasted potatoes, ate our lunch, told stories, and sent the startled echoes to swiftly seek their hidden fast- nesses in the wood. All this with the thermometer somewhere near zero and the wind raging like an uncaged demon. Soon after the brightest wits evolved another idea. We should have an annual. Behold "Thenadays!"' The first of its kind of the century. The intricate ma- chinery of our mental processes continued to move unceasingly. We were an extraordinary class. We should establish precedents. We would give a class play. Our well-beloved Faculty caught its breath, smiled, looked serionsg we used much forensic elo- quence, the Faculty smiled againg the day was ours. The Iirst class of the century should distinguish itself in dramatic art. Time fied swiftlyg our grades multiplied. Earnest eyes grew dim by the lurid glare of midnight oil burning at 2 a. m. The 1st of April drew near and the Senior Class, feeling that life should not be spent wholly in the in- terests of others, voted to have a social in the new Gymnasium. The elements frowned again, also the Juniors. Ac- customed to the constant generosity of their Seniors, they could not understand why they were not invited, and, after the manner of spoiled children, planned to break up the social already postponed on account of 1 the weather. That night a dark plot carefully plan- ned Was carried out. Seven of the most prominent Senior boys were suddenly overpowered in their rooms by the combined efforts of over iifty Juniors. Securely bound, they were carried away in hacks, surrounded by a strong body-guard of Juniors, who were well content to plod through snow and mud. The old brewery offered itself as a convenient prison, and the Seniors, who discovered an alarming propensity for window-breaking, were taken in. When the Juniors discovered their mistake, they were disappointed. The Mit-Way was richer. The Seniors were fortiued against the cold with hot oysters. The Senior social, planned for so carefully, occured at last in the new Gymnasium. Once more the Juniors planned, once more their plans came to naught. The refreshments were carried up one street while they watched another. Ah, Juniors, you planned well, but you should have learned long ago that the Senior Class is far beyond you. Your efforts were hopeless from the beginfning. Arbor Day arrived and the Juniors were prepared to do valiant battle for the destruction of the Senior tree, but again the Seniors proved that added years have added gravityg increased wisdom brings increased humility. In after years no aged alumnus will direct the attention of an admiring Freshman to an old oak whose wide-spreading branches provide homes for the many sweet songsters of the forest. He cannot say, "This is the tree the '01s planted on Arbor Day of 1901." Instead, while his feet are softly sunken in the cool, tender grass of the lawn, the aged Alumnus will remark proudly, "We sowed this grass in '01, and yon- der is the hole the Juniors made in the mud when we piled them up because they wouldn't keep off the seed." Freshmen, Sophs, Juniors, behold us! We chal- lenge your admiration. Do you seek orators? We have them among us. ADO you desire poetry? Poets are in our ranks. Would you find beauty? Gaze up- on our maidens. Do you admire constancy and manly fortitude? The men of the Class of '01 have proved themselves heroes on many a hard-fought field. Would you gather wisdom and knowledge? We are teachers -teachers with life and energy. Prof. Wilkinson rec- ommends us, and we are modestly conscious of the fact that we can do well what we undertake. Already we are in demand. The call for our services comes from the East and the uttermost bounds of the West, and we obey. Yet ere we take our way into the paths of promise, ere we reach out for the realization of our life's ideals, and as a band of earnest young men and women take up the work life holds for us, we turn and hold out the right hand of fellowship to you Jun- iors, now Seniors, and we become the class of then-a- days, the teachers of now-a-days, the founders of to- be-a-days. y Svevii f I 1 5 WW' Q' " gf mff if V- 1 Q ff .. . 7' .
