He was a man of ideas and knew how to impress them, so that, though at first he encountered opposition from students and faculty, now his ideals are the ideals of the school. He was an athlete, and helped to build up a good system of athletics in our school. His has been an important part in creating the good-will existing between students and faculty. And as we admire him in these things, we love him as we lfnow him when he throws open his home for our pleasure and profit each two weelrs. To this man, Norman Triplett, who is indeed our philosopher and friend, the Senior class of the Kansas State Normal afectionately dedicates this book. 6 .NORMAN TRIPLE TT 7 CONTENTS FRONTISPIECE . . .

THE SENIOR CLASS E have reached another milestone, we are about to receive our reward for the four years of effort through which we have passed. Seniors we are called, and we are proud of the name. The rounding out and completion of our education, life itself, is before us, but we pause now and rest a moment while we glance back over the pleasures and struggles of our school days. As freshmen, we gazed in wcnder at our faculty, took in through open mouths every word which they deigned to give us, as Sophomores, we suffered from the usual numbers of serious cases, serious, mainly because of the resulting inattention to studies. While Juniors, our rapid development seemed for a time to threaten the even balance of our minds and cause enlargement of the cranium, but we have managed, through our superior adjustments to the surroundings and through the leavening influence of our class pleasures, recreations and duties, to maintain an equilibrium with which to meet the hard- ships of Senior year. Our adoration of the faculty has changed to mutual respect fwe hopejg the wounds from Cupid's darts are assuagecl either by effecting a combination, as has our editor, or by taking an optimistic view and hoping for the best, and we trust that we may continue our education until other people realize that we are as wise as our ,junior opinion of ourselves. Senior duties are nearly over, and soon we will receive our diplomas to signify that we are ready to pass out of the school as alumni or to remain to take post-graduate work, so we wish to be forgiven for the slight air of superiority, as you call it, dignity as we feel it, and to be allowed the few days of celebration of our attainment of an end, the realization of the youthful ideal beyond which we now look, but which once seemed distant. Our class has over one hundred members, seven of whom will be graduated from the Arts course and take the degree, Bachelor of Arts, and seven from the Music course. lwo of these finish in violin, one in public school music, and four will be graduated from the piano department. From the Kindergarten course seven graduates will enter the pro- fession of Froebel. The rest of us call ourselves graduates of the regular course, and will enter the workaday world as public school pedagogs. We do not like to separate, for we have had good times together. Last summer there was a reception at the home of President Hill, a big picnic at Randolph's landing, and later a good watermelon time on the campus. Since September our good times have consisted of a picnic, held unavoidably in the gymnasium, at which youthful frolic was much in evidence: a jolly progressive party on the first floor of Norton Hall, with an informal spread and a limerick contest: a big banquet at which we toasted dear, familiar, Senior toastsg a basketball game which was rousing good fun all through, in which we defeated the P. Cfs. by a score of 32 to 12, we now have the anticipation of good times to come near Commencement. We have enjoyed these merrymakings, and then have been ready to go back to the serious work and tasks waiting us in every class and on every Senior committee. However, we are beginning to realize the partings of the morn- ing after our Senior career is ended, but this parting will be softened by the hope of meet- ing in a year for our first reunion. 70 THE SENIORS' VVILL li, the Senior class of l909, realize that school life, for us, has been very short. We realize that we must, in the very near future, leave an aching void in the hearts ol' these who have known us, to solve the problems of life which the world has long been waiting to have us solve. It is not without many misgivings that we make this announce- ment to the lower classes who have so spontaneously admired and adored us, but we have arranged to have a large supply of soothing syrup on hand to allay the terrible agony which they must endure. We realize, with the rest of the world, that the class of ,09 is the most brilliant and beautiful class which K. S. N. has ever graduated, and we can discover no indications that the future has any promise that it will ever be duplicated. Vve realize that this is the great climax in the drama of education, and that we are the result of the energy of all the forces of the universe for countless ages. Wie would, however, have the under classes regard their lot as optimistically as possible. No drama is complete without the minor parts, and you can undoubtedly be as useful in your small way as we are in our large one. There was a time, also, when we did nct show as great a degree of brilliancy as we do at present, and we believe that, although you do not compare at all favorably with what we were at your age, still vcu are not essentially different from classes which have preceded us. Then, also, you have our shining example to follfw and, although you can no more attain rur eminence than the child can catch the rainbfw. still you will be able to accom' plish ir-conceivably more than you would have if we had nct gone before you and illum- nated the way. K To the ,luniors we bequeath the right to publish the annual for l9l0. Although we realize that the Oracle is much surerier to anything that has ever been phblished before, and that the Juniors have no one who can produce anything so gocd again, still we would not have you unnecessarily discouraged hy that fact. The same faculty cuts will do to use again, and you can find artists who can fix no your own pictures so that they will nct be worse-looking than the average run of ordinary pictures. Then, also, you will have a splendid model to copy from. and by changing a few words and names and altering the relative pcsiticn of some of the matter. you probably could utilize a great deal ol' fl-P matter found in the Oracle without these who will he ,luniors in I9l0 being any the wiser. We urge you not to shirk this duty of publishing an annual. We assure you that we would not bequeath you this privilege if we were net obliged ta turn our attention to other things. The schoolrooms of Kansas and the world should net be deprived any longer of the inspiring influence of at least a part of cur class, and the nresert pest-gradu- ate class is utterly incapable of doing the work in advanced science and philoscphy which we are so especially gifted by nature to accomplish. While we do not feel that we can again spend our time on the production of an 71 annual, still we will be willing now and then to spare a few moments of our precious time to give you such advice about the matter as you are likely to be able to comprehend. We will also assist you financially by purchasing a ccpy and if your work is not too much below the average, you probably will be able to sell enough so that you will not need to make an assessment of more than five dollars each to make good the deficit. To the Juniors, we also bequeath the exclusive right to command in the gymnasium, teach in the training school, and attend teachers' meetings, but the right to stand on the carpet in the Presidentis office shall be divided equally among those who dance in the gymnasium and those who make a disturbance in chapel. To the present Sophomores, or at least such part of the class as can work a suf- ficient number of the Faculty, fby pity or otherwisel, into giving them enough credit to call themselves Juniors in I9l0, we bequeath the right to banquet the Senior class of l9l0. That there will be a Senior class in I9I0 is not all certain, but we have hope that a few of the present ,luniors will be able to graduate by that time, as there are several who will have only about forty weeks of work to finish after the beginning of the summer term, and we trust there is no one on the Faculty who is so dense as not to see that it wtuld be bad policy to Hunk each and everyone of them live times, regardless of how much they might deserve it. Vve feel jwstified in befiueathing you this right unconditionally on account of the brilliancy you have displayed in entertaining the Juniors this year. To the Freshmen we bequeath the right to discard that generally verdant appear- ance which they have so long worn. You will not find it easy to do, but persistent sand papering by such of tloe Seniors as stay for fellowship work will not fail to show its effect in time and if you listen carefully to the jewels of thought wfich will fall from their lips you will absorb some slight degree of culture even if you are unable to compre- hend the subjects, and very likely, in the course of time, some of the ideas will soak in. and as wood expands when it is soaked, the dense outer green coating will not be large enough to cover the whole and it will crack and then a part of it probably will peel off. And so, underclassmen, we bid you aclieu, but we assure you that the anguish of parting will not be entirely yours, for you have been very dear to us in your simple way and it may comfort you to know that you have, to some extent, been useful to us,- as it would have been impossible for us to have made our recitations in abnormal psychology quite so brilliant if we had not been able to use you for concrete examples to illustrate our discussions.--l-l.

THE ARTS COURSE I HERE is no such organization, to the knowledge of the writer, in the Kansas State Normal, as the "pest-'graduate classf, The following remarks apply to the Arts Course class, which includes all students who have hnislied over 640 weeks of work in the Normal school and wlio are still pursuing their work with an A. B., or complete graduation from the Kansas State Normal College, as their goal. K A couple of years ago, had a stranger visited our sclioel. lie would have noticed down in the frcnt art of the middle section, sundr f individuals whom he would have been pn A 5 . . told were tlie Seniors. Today, should he return, he would notice, occupying almost identically the same seats as two vears before, the most Lrnoressive of the above' mentioned group. Surely he would say to himself, uThese promising individuals have not failed!" And, of course. he would be right. These are the few who have risen above the state which is merely desirous of a life certihcate and whose fortunes permitted that they might seek knowledge for its tvvn sake, to build up power, which will assist in the better per' formance of their chosen lines of work. " The first Arts Course class was organized in l90i7, and at the time it was doubt- ful whether such an organization could endure. There was a vague runror Whispered among the students of a tw:-year addition to our course if study with the conference of a baccalaureate upon these who sliould complete it. At first it was little credited. The universities and colleges over tlse state smiled to themselves and regarded it as a sort of Chimera, a Utopia which wield never be realized. Today our Hdreamu has coroe true. The Normal School is no lrnicer classed wth the secfndaries, and her collegiate standing has received recognition wherever it has been desired, from the big Universities of the East. As to the class itself, we can say that more and more it is becoming a factor in the various school enterprises and a force to be felt in starting the soirft and character of our school. We are not iccnoclasts, for it is not our business to bring new gcds into existence here. The old ideals and images worshiped by these who have gene before are good enough for us, and although we rarelv participate in the hilarious uproar by which the underclassmen manifest their soirit and loyalty fer their alma mater, we are possessed of the quiet devotion which undergoes the real sacrifice when necessary. Also, we have long ago passed beycnd tlfe solipsistic stage of the ccmmcn senior, for we do not feel that the world moves areurd us as its center, nor do we believe in an anthro- pomorphic teleolzgy wherein our little class is the ultimate end. We allow for other class organizations as well as cur cwn and invite all, who have the required amount of work to their credit, to join us. Wve realize that we are but a group of ordinary persons. Whom destiny has placed in a great and glorious wcrldg a world of cpportunities. We look back through the darkness which ensl'r'cuds cur fast and reirice in the thouvlft that, victorious. man has arisen from the chaos of barbarism ard produced this splendid age in which we live. We are truly thankful to the Almightv Ruler of the universe fcr the place which l-le has given us in the great plan of the ages, in that we have been given the freedom of choice, made masters of cur own fate and tl'e captains of our own souls. , With a cheer for these who have gone before. with a HGluck Aufi' to those who are yet come, and an everlasting devotion to our alma rnater, we pass from these scenes of preparation to become students in a broader sense in the great university of fate, where time is the all-seeing teacher. 74 PUUDSS 2 D 2 1 EU rs m E. va u 5 EU D.

In fact, we'rc the only class that attends all that happens, and, whether we're invited or not, it is always understood that we will come if we care to. Our first social event of the year was the Junior feed last November. We went in the gymnasium, and after letting the Juniors chew on for several moments, we enter- tained them with our class yell while they sat quiet, too surprised even to ask how it hap- pened. Several days later, we ourselves decided to forget all cares for one evening, and indulged in a celebration at the home of one of our classmates. Surely it is not necessary to say that we had an ideal "good time." About a week after this, at the timid request of the Freshies, we condescended to come to their social in the gym.. A swell time was experienced by all for some time following our entrance. After being treated to punch at the Freshies, expense, and help ing ourselves to the "eatings" we took our departure amid tearful good-byes. Soon after Christmas vacation, the Juniors secured our consent to their having another social. We very much regret, however, that they forgot to see Mr. Boyles. So does Marks. He can furnish a comprehensive answer to the question, '5What hap- pened after the lights went out?" Mr. Rhine, the juniors' president, Mr. Dillman, their renowned humorist, and Mr. Marks all kindly consented to walk with us to the depot ujust to entertain us." Upon arriving there all were treated to sam handwiches and a general good time. About l0:30 our three guests expressed exceeding great sor- row at being compelled to go so soon, and departed for the gym, but alas! alas! Marks, girl had gone. However, the greatest event of the season, up to yet, was the Sophs' Valentine social in the gym, which event was highly enjoyed by the Sophs, as well as by the Freshies and juniors. At least we suppose they enjoyed it-they innocently and guilelessly inqquired, "the morning after," if there really had been a Soph social in the gym! When the Freshies again humbly petitioned us to allow them one more social, we graciously assented, but told them, of course, to order refreshments for us also. On the evening appointed for the social, the Freshies came like lambs to the slaughter. We tied up about a dozen of them, but soon turned them loose-they wouldnyt do a thing. We then proceeded to the banquet hall, but through some unaccountable lapse of mind the Freshies forgot to let us in, until we turned the fire hose on them, with very salutary effect. We all hope they will know better next time. Surely those who were hung out to dry in the sun will take heed, and accumulate wisdom from it. Of course, we might mention many other noteworthy things that the Sophs have done during the year, but we believe that the facts herein set forth will give you some conception, at least, of our importance. However, there is one more thing that We must not omit,-the fact that our Soph girls are the prettiest, wittiest, and nicest bunch in school. So, with the prettiest girls and the liveliest crowd of boys, no one can question that we, the immortal, great and only Sophs, are the best class of the Kansas State Normal School. 86 SOPHOMORE Ki Sophomore!

FELKER HILE. none of the members of the class of l9l2 have, as yet, become eminent in any line, they have distinguished themselves as a class, and have three years left in which to distinguish themselves individually. Twice they have gathered in the gym for an evening of merrymaking and fun, and twice the Sophomores have helped to make the occasion interesting. At one party they came rushing in at a door which was supposed to be locked, and the Freshmen had a most hilarious time taking them down and tying them up. At the other party, the game consisted in the two classes standing in the doorway and sousing each other with water, at which the Freshmen were the winners. The class is composed of students who always make the best of everything, and are among the most loyal and enthusiastic in school. 90 -I ae aa P' C7 Q u - I1 ll-1 2 -C o 'I in li-1 5 Q 0 , Harms, MCK 4. ..

They gave a party one evening, In the Science Hall, you know: But they were soon interrupted By the Freshies, their deadliest foe. But they did not break up the party, For the Preps were well equipped With a Hill and a Dale for protection, And, with Science to help, they whipped. The Freshies went down that stairway Like they were shot out of a gun, Nor did they stop to argue But decided it hest to run. And run they did and in earnest, And they didn't stop at all Till they were safe from the Prep class, And a long way from Science Hall. Nor did this end the trouble, For the Prcshies held forth one night, And the Preps went over to visit And had ci genuine fight. It seemed the Preshies were Baptists, Wiatcr was their salvationg But the Preps were soon converted And stood as strong as a nation. The Freshies used lnuckets of water, The Preps used the hose for aid, And they used it to advantage- The Freshies had to wade. But now the ight is all overg To the Freshies the Preps are friends, And although a coat is missing 1t's never too late to mend. But what is a class without parties, Or a party without a fight We plead with the Preps who are coming To keep our fame still hright. 9 99 Chapel NORMAL HIGH SCHOOL EHOR several years the Normal School has felt the need of a more thorough preparatory department than that provided by the. so-called sub-Normal. So many of our Johnnies and Marys c-ome to us direct from the eighth grade and are so young, they can by no means take up work with the mature students. Course and Faculty The Normal High School is now completing the second year of its existence. It has a four years' course complete in every detail, as an examination of it will prove. Mr. Glotfelter, as training director, is general supervisor of this department. Last year Miss Snyder was principal, which place is held this year by Mr. Keller, assisted by Miss Snyder and Miss Woiodrow. Mr. Williams, Mrs. Mull, Miss Flynn, Miss Richards, Miss Brookover, Miss Dale, and Mr. Braucher, also teach classes in the High School. Enrollment The enrollment last year scarcely exceeded forty, but thris year it has almost reached the hundred mark. The best thing about the enrollment is that there are as many boys as girls in school. Probably half of these young people live in Emporia or in Lyon county, but the rest come from all parts of the state. Athletics ln football considerable practicing was done, but no match games were played. ln basketball more work was done. McDonald, Mulvaney, Harry Cole, Alvin Cole. Holmes, Hinshaw, and Houston are the best players. Work is being done in the various lines of track team work. Much enthusiasm is being shown in the organization of a base- ball team. With McDonald as captain and such players as Mowe, Pendergraft, Mulvaney, Mauck, Houston, the two Coles, Barnes, and McKinley Pratt, we may expect great results. A girls' squad in basketball contains those athletically inclined: Ruth Dwelle, Linnie Pratt, Bernice Dalmer, Carrie and Cora Kinsely, Sara Morgan, Pricilla Davis, Helen Scott, Marguerite Hunter, Marguerite Richardson, Edith Roberts, Edna Hemenway, Clara Birdsall, Opal Wishard, and Irene Andrews. Superior A clvantages One of the greatest advantages offered to High School pupils is that those who show unusual talent along some special line, have the privilege of developing it much further than is possible in most I-high Schools. Those who sing well are asked to join Mr. Beach's chorus, composed of advanced music students. Those who show aptitude for drawing or color work may take further work in the Normal proper. The best that is offered in the Normal in manual training and in gymnastic work may be enjoyed by the High School students who show themselves fitted for such training. Unusual advantages in domestic art are offered by the classes taught by Mrs. Mull. A more pleasant and contented set of students cannot be found than those in the Normal High School. Watch for them in the future, and they will tell you that the important places held by them are the result of the happy and profitable years spent in Normal High School. Oop-py-o! Oop-py-i!

The changes and improvements that were made in the courses of instruction, and the general extension of the work to meet the present demand, have resulted in an increased interest on the part of the student body. Q , In the reconstruction of the work in music, it was found necessary to organize two distinct departments, one the department of music, and the other, the department of public school music. The plan of the work of the department of music, is to offer courses in technical and theoretical music. The department of publfc school music offers courses in vocal music and methods, covering kindergarten, primary, grammar and high school work. The success of these departments may be judged by the large enrollment and the many public exhibitions of the work given in recitals and concerts during the year. A resume of the work and attendance of the past year may be of general interest. In the department of music, over one hundred students have studied piano, sixty in voice, thirty-five in stringed instruments and one hundred and twenty-seven in the theory and history of music. In the department of public school music, four hundred and ninety have attended the various class courses and ten are specializing in that department. The organization maintained by these departments, including the mixed chorus, men,s chorus, glee club, ladies' chorus, orchestra, mandolin and guitar club, have had a total enrollment of three hundred and fifty for the year. During the year ten public recitals were given, thirty-five private-recitals for music students exclusively, and four concerts. One of these concerts was given by the teaching staff of the department of music and one by a musical organization. The opera, "The lVlikado," by Sullivan, and the oratorio, "The Hymn of Praise," by Mendelssohn, are at present being rehearsed for public performance. The annual commencement concert will close the work of the year. Nineteen students will complete courses in music. Four of this number will receive the regular diploma of graduation in piano, two in violin and one in public school music. Eight will receive a certificate of merit in piano, three in voice and one in violin. The class of l909 is the largest in the history of these departments. 106 . iQ Q! . fe' XX J!

The oration contest was, as usual, a glorious event. Four strong champions met in mighty combat wwhich raged furiously, for great spoils were sure to belong to the victor. When the roar of battle had died away and the smoke had lifted, our beloved Corcoran, alone bore no trace of damage and was immediately crowned victor. Our orator tar outshoen those of the other societies, and the rest of our contestants were well worthy ot any prize that the school might offer. Wlihe Belles are again doing thingsf' as some of our strongest competitors have said, and with the support of an active society, the outcome of the declamation contest can easily be foretold. We have the timber for basketball teams that insures the school there will be something dcfng in that line in the future, as there has been in the past. We are especially proud of our girls, ,basketball teams, which have so often dealt out defeat to the teams of the other societies. The Belles are, and have ever been, leaders in all school enterprises. They are found on the janitor force, Bulletin, staff, in the faculty, etc. There is undoubtedly a glorious future awaiting the Belles. Orange! Orange! Yoo! Yah! Yoo! Yah!

So we wish success and happiness for our sister societies-they have worked well and hard to attain the reputation which we now enjoy. We hope they may always be near, but never pass us, and with love as a guide may we often meet in friendly contest. I S a man to be censured if he taketh pride in his work? Certainly we are happy, but not full of vanity, to know that the other societies feel our strength. At times they seem to fear lest we leave them far behind in the struggle. But regardless of these fears we steadily press on. To the man who speaketh well is victory given. This was clearly exemplified last December by Marks and C. Thompson, who so gloriously upheld this organization in debate with our Belles-Lettres friends. Thompson, with his bodily magnitude and gifted oratory, and Marks, with his plezqsing stature and convincing ability, won the debate with ease, and again the Lits were in the lead. EVER may we greet our friends with gladncss and a cordial welcome. The Lits are glad to have all who will, come and join us in our work. We will meet you with a smile, and have you share in our social functions, which is, -after all, the thing that makes life happy. Our hall is open. have four members of our society governed this year-Bert Hensley, Blanche Peters, REIGN firmly, justly, and diligentlyf' was the secret of Washington's control. Thus Orin Rhine and Hazel jones. These people, by their faithfulness, have contributed to make our organization cne of the strongest in school. A ND to do all things well has been the policy of our presidents. On them Have fallen many duties which they have fulhllecl. We need only to say, that in future years our society will be led by such as these. To work is to win. Fred Thompson acquitted himself well in the oration contest, and Anna Biggs' essay was among the best. May the Lits continue to be represented by such worthy contestants. I NSPIRE. your friends with a desire to attain physical manhoodf, is a thought which we may well consider. Athletics has always been an important element in our work and shall continue to be as such. ln track, football, baseball, and basketball, we have been represented by the strongest athletes of the school. 123 iw 6 3 Eff 15 u 'Q M Q 3 fc 5 a N .1 :Q U A , V3 HU .

A. - SOME THING WOR TH READING Here are the accomplishments of a year in a nutshell: Messrs. Good and McLeland won the June debate, thus bringing the Williams Trophy Cup to Lyceum hall. Messrs. Messenger, Taylor, Barnes, Markwell and Price have held the men's basketball champion- ship against all comers. Misses Hochstetler, Borrer, King, Dakon and Sue Mitchell won the girls' basketball championship from the Belles-Lettres. Miss Adeline Rogler added three points to our score in the essay contest, bringing our record up to sixty points. Our girls have challenged the Philo and Belle girls to double debates to occur in the spring term. Messrs. Markwell and Allen are to represent us in the June debate. Our mem- bership quota is full, being the largest of any society in school, and stretches from Spo- kane, Wash., to Porto Alegro, Brazil. The Lyceum girls' party was a brilliant success, while the "All Lyceum Party " outclassed anything of the kind ever given in the institu- tion. The quality of the work done in the society is shown by the selection of six Lyceum men out of the twelve on interstate debates, namely: Messrs. Good, Martin, Gard, Barnes, McGuffey and Hanna. The hall is being beautifully refurnished, but is far too small for the crowds. The flashlight view here given shows only the average number in attendance, for the programs given have been of a high order, and almost entirely by our own people. These are a few of the things accomplished by a society that is not afraid to work, and that has worked as a unit. Let us arise and sing. 9 129 Q- I A :W ' fps 2 Z fn Q2 i -4 ,W P5412 I Q X j' x7 X K1' KX ' U : l In f W QAZZZIU ',f1i'51i,i a5.f'ff'?"

The past year has been prosperous in various ways. During the spring term of 1908 there was a steady and rapid increase in membership, the society becoming larger than it has been for some time. Not all the new members returned to school in the fall, but those who did return have proved worthy. ln the contest in June, l908, Jennie Mader won for us the first prize in declama- tiong while in the March contest just passed, Cora Coleman won first in essay, and Albert Heaton a very close second in oration. . The society has accomplished more than usual in the way of athletics the past year. It was an occasion of much rejoicing when the representatives of the Literati society brought down to our hall the cup which the Philo track team had won in the inter- socicty relay race. Basketball has also received its share of attention, much interest being taken in the intersociety contests. There are still fields to conquer, and the Philos will be there. May the close of the year prove as successful as the portion that is past. PHILOMA THIAN HALL 131 E -9. N U 1.

S. N. in the art of debate and after-dinner speaking. The work has always been of a high order and a serious nature. The work done during the school year i908 and l909 was exceptional, however, in that the amount was doubled without lowering the standard in any way. This was made possible partly through the introduction and growth of the A. B. course and partly because of the stimulation of debate work among the lower classmen by the organization of a second debating society to which they were eligible. This new society was named the Representative society and with it and the old ,Iayhawker club as feeders, the Alpha Senate will be able within a year or so, to do something which it has not done for years, if it ever did, and that will be to fill its membership list to the limit of forty-1 nine, with men everyone of whom can be counted on for interstate debate teams. The argumentation, for the past year, consisted of contests with Friends University at Wichita, Kansas, the Oklahoma Normal at Edmund, Cklahoma, and the Iowa Normal at Cedar Falls, Iowa. There were but two questions debated, as the Friends University and the Oklahoma Normal questions were the same. The question was, "Resolved That a constitutional amendment should be secured, by which senators shall be elected by a direct vote of the people." Both of these debates occurred away from home, Messrs. Marks, Wright and Gard going to Wichita, and arguing for the allirmative, while Messrs. Hanna, Barnes and McGuffey upheld the negative in Oklahoma. Mr. Metzler was alternate for these teams. ' The Iowa contest was a dual one, the question being, "Resolved: That in all industrial disputes coming under federal jurisdiction, federal judges should have the right to issue injunctions or temporary restraining orders without notice." In this debate Kan- sas stood for the affirmative in Iowa and was represented by Mr. Good, Mr. Hensley and Mr. Turner. In Emporia Mr. Harrin, Mr. Martin and Mr. Richardson represented K. S. N. and argued for the negative. 135 d I' E 3 U -52 l' 0:5 Es :HE E13 E, E do Sa E6 -S 45 fi 3 4.25 cgi 3: ILL'- f 5 af? gan: :E3 -.m-E LE u n.. -S if 5. 43135 5 2 ai? g-ao -QQ ,gttu urn EU! 26 la? ag' ng 3 'USE 8-5-U gi l-'ml-1 U 2 C U U0 D Z I ,E Ii E 3 u 1: R U -:Z T U .E 4: T 3 e M D4 Q l" C .2 E' Y?

It is the purpose of this organization to give its members training in debate and parliamentary practice. The boys are in it for self-culture and development, and the pro- grams are not planned with the 'idea of entertainment. V The meetings are conducted as if they were a part of their regular school work. At the close of each meeting the critic gives his helpful criticisms and advice. Professor Charles Hill has served as critic the past year and his services have been greatly appreciated by the club. The regulations of the club are provided for by a constitution and by-laws. The membership is limited to twenty. To maintain this an eligible list is kept, which is com- posed of names of fellows who carry their work in the Normal successfully. From this list, when a vacancy occurs, a new member is elected. The officers are elected for a term of ten weeks, during which time the president is required to call some member to the chair to preside in his place in each of the meetings during his term except three. This gives each member an opportunity to exercise his executive ability and wear off his embar- rassment. To encourage prompt attendance, fines are imposed for tardiness and absence. This tends to keep none but workers in the club. The work of the club has an important influence on the other school organizations. For several years 'it has had the task of preparing young men for membership in the Senate. How well this task has been performed is shown by the representation of former Jayhawkers in the debate and oratorical work of the school. The club members provide a large amount of the debate practice in the evening literary societies. Students who are beginning their debate and parliamentary study find the club especially adapted to their needs, and, since it is the aim of the club to keep up the present high standard during the coming year, new students will do well to come to the club meeting at the earliest opportunity. If one is interested in this line of work, he can do no wiser act than to have his name placed on the eligible lfst. Presidents: H. C. Coffman, second term: A. Larson, third term, C. Sloan, fourth term, Joe Marty, fifth term. - 139 5-. u 5 J: UD 5. .- n. cu 2 5 v ua 1. aa 'U u D-1 C 0 N 11 n. L54 L: ua D. .9 -l si 0 vi -. 11 -I mf 3 O T m E I 3 O Z D.

There came a happy inspiration: U Ionian nxand it was so christened. Now this society waxed strong and flourished. Ir began the school year of nineteen-eight with new vigor. But there were those within the organization who cared not for argu- ment and desired that the constitution be changed. So a committee was appointed, and they swept and garnished and reconstructed the constitution, and the society saw that it was good. Now after this it was decreed that no girl should be admitted to the society who had not at least two hundred forty weeks' credit in the institution, and the work be no longer confined to debates, but include general literary workg and it was so ordered. The membership is limited to thirty, and officers are elected each ten weeks. In the course of the year we have many interesting programs. At the present time the society is studying Creek mythology. Recently, after we had exhausted the available design books and the pin committee's patience, we decided upon a pin, and the design you may see on this page. 141 1- if Q5 ,gm C. . 22' .-:Q ,UQ :QU 535 U0 ,552 gsm iii .:::F Ea!

Puzzling questions, lgnotty problems, In the government of nations. Laws that had been passed and should not, Laws that should be passed and had not, Ufhat was needed by the pupils ln the public schools of Kansas: Should the mind be fed on Latin Made to grind it, masticate it, Would the mind assimilate it? Crow to be a match for Caesar Cicero and Virgil, Horace? Or should children grow as Topsy Did, observing, imitating? These and many more grave problems Had these maidens pondered over At their meeting 'neath the shelter Of the Norton Science Hall. But this warm autumnal Friday All perplexing, puzzling questions Vanished at the words. "A trolic, Somewhere out upon the campus Has been planned by our committee." Tripping lightly, calling blithly, ,Y. llfcnt the troop of merry maidens, Eyes a-dancing, voices laughing, As they gaily left the doorway Of the Science building empty. Out into the glowing sunlight, Under plumy branches waving Past the Gym they found some cuttings From the red haw tree with berries. These were gathered, then they wandered On to westward, then to southward, Under elms, catalpas, locusis, Till they found a grassy level 'Neath the shade of one large elm tree. There they rested, chatted, laughing As the cream and wafers vanished. Round the corner where the fountain Plays, a sparkling run of raindrops When the clouds above are weeping, Came a tall, fair youth a-sauntering Toward the Gym "Wells" in concert Said two maidens as he greeted Some with questions as to what, And why, and what not. Then upon The invitation to be seated, Have some cream and wafers with us He was served and told the reason Of this merrymalfing party. So they tallfed whiie ,toy and laughter lightened hearts with mirth and cheer. Then the hour drew near for parting, Each responded with "aye, aye," We are thankful to the committee,-" Then they scattered waving, "Good-by." c""', it K L QA 'v 615 T wi!

It has passed the first anniversery of its organization and is now marching on in triumph toward high ideals. The purpose of the club as set forth in the constitution is to promote excellency in oratory, debate and parliamentary practice. The Work of the club has proved to be exceedingly helpful to those enrolled. A new feature of practice was introduced this year in mock trials. This is very instructive as Well as entertaining. The membership is now twenty-four. Several names are in the hands of the membership committee and these people will become members as soon as they are recommended by this committee. For the coming year the club expects greatly to increase its efficiency by offering an advanced course in training and by increasing its membership. Every young man in school should associate himself with some such organization as this, where he will be prepared to speak or take part in any of the multitudinous public meetings which offer him such an opportunity. gsgg tll nu N f ll Iv TK ' ff Hg Il X 1 K fiiltl W fr' ,f " -.+I X C f , W X PM ? l f f!!

When she was a member of the intercollegiate state league, she won three first places in ten years, so that when, in l895, Forest Woodside took first place, the other state schools concluded that this was getting to be too regular a habit, and voted us out of the association. The first Interstate Normal contest was held in May, IS96. Since that time Kansas has won three first, six second, one third, and two fifth places. Those who won first place in the old state league were: Alfred Doclcery, I885g W. C. Coleman, 1893, Forest Woodside, l895. The members of the interstate league are Illinois, Wisconsin ,Iowa, Missouri and Kansas. The following Kansans have taken first places in this league: Allen T. Saint Clair, I898g Ernest B. Mathews, I903, and Robert E. Coughlin, l904. On total ranking Kansas is far ahead of any of the other states. The winner of the first place in the local contest receives a prize of twenty dollars, and of the interstate contest of fifty dollars. This year the contest is to be held at Cedar Falls, Iowa, where John P. Corcoran is to represent Kansas, with Albert Heaton as alternate. 149 PSYCHCLOGY CLUB ' T is doubly fitting that an account of this club should appear in the ORACLE. It has in come to be so thoroughly a part of the school life of many students that this volume would not be complete did not a memorial to the Psychology Club find a place on its pages. Many, whose future joys of Normal life must come from its memories, would find a serious vacancy in this book of memories should it lack its word of appreciation to Dr. Triplett, his good wife, and Dorothy, too, for the delightful hours spent in their home on the second and fourth Friday evenings of each month. "Doubly fitting," because these pages are dedicated to Dr. Triplett, the patron saint of this club. Five years ago next September, Dr. Triplett established the club. He felt the need of a place for the discussion, in an informal way, of questions and topics which come up in a student's work and for which there is not time in class. That the club filled a need in the lives of the students is clearly indicated in the interest shown and the increasing attendance. Starting with only a handful, it has seen a steady increase in numbers until now, in its fifth year, from thirty to forty students attend each meeting. While no fixed or formal program is arranged, yet each follows the same general plan. Fifteen or twenty minutes is given to the discussion of our mental troubles and perplexities. The topics discussed are widely scattered through the realm of psychology, ethics and philosophy. There are a few faithful topics, such as "free will," which attend the club's meetings annually or oftener. Next on the program, some special subject is presented by Dr. Triplet, Dr. Riley, Dr. Jewell, or some specially invited speaker. Then a recess is taken and for ten or fifteen minutes we relax and stretch our brains. Whatever Dr. Triplett does he does according to modern pedagogical or psychological method-s, and this recess is no exception. It is a law of psychology that if one wishes to rid oneself of a habit one should replace that habit with another, more desirable, habit. Well, Mrs. Triplett and Miss Atwood cook up some pretty good habits, or, using the language of domestic science, "fudge," "pinoche" and so forth and these new "habits" crowd out our ponderous ponderings of a few minutes previous. After recess some current magazine story, with psychological merit, is read. Dr. Triplett also keeps us informed as to recent books of interest to students of psychology. We who attend these evening gatherings enjoy the informality of it all, we like the spirit in which the club was started and is continued, and we venture to predict that, in the future, looking back into the now, we shall appreciate even more than at present the value of those pleasant and profitable evenings spent in the home of Dr. and Mrs. Triplett. 150 NOR TON SCIENCE HALL SCIENCE CLUB I HE Science Club was organized, so far as it can be said to have an organization, the fall of I90 7, to give the members of the faculty and students who are specializ- ing in the Normal College course an opportunity to become familiar with the work of other departments of the school. The need was great and the response has been fairly good. No school of whatever grade can do satisfactory work unless the instruction in each department is correlated with that in every related department. So one object of the club has always been to conserve this school unity. The increase in knowledge in most subjects has been so rapid during the past ten or twelve years that few graduates of twenty years ago are more than moderately intel- ligent in anything except in their own specialties. The Science Club, like most other clubs, tries to renew interest in subjects long forgotten and to keep its members in touch with all subjects in which discoveries are rapidly multiplying. A recent program will serve to indicate the character of the work attempted. Nearly all placed on this pro- gram are members of the post graduate class and all are doing work in the Normal College.

They spoke to Professor Rhodes, of the Department of Political Science, and found that he was enthusiastically favor of it. So one day at I2:30, twelve or fourteen of the boys met with Professor Rhodes and organized the club. Professor Rhodes was elected chairman and B. C. Martin secretary. A committee was appointed to outline the course for the year. The regular. meetings were on the evening of the first and third Monday of each month. Professor Rhodes kindly offered the use of his home as a meeting place for the club. Th-e general topic of the year that was studied was the relation of government to the industrial development of our country. This immediately took on two phases- the relation of the government, first, to what are commonly called important industries and, second, to gigantic trusts and monopolies. .lust how much the government should enter into the industrial world is a question that is being thoroughly discussed in all the political parties, in all organizations that pretend in any way to study political science, and is a popular subject for newspaper and magazine writers. Therefore the club thinles it has had an exceedingly profitable study in political science on a subject that is a live problem. The following is the general outline of the course pursued. These subjects were treated from political, economic, and social points of view. One person would give a paper on the subject which would be followed by general discussion, usually directed by suggested subtopics given out beforehand by the one who was to give the paper of the evening.

After all, that must be the step to their solution and twelve or fourteen of the young men, who soon will be taking their part in practical life, will have a better knowledge to meet the conditions in relation to their state that confront them from time to time. 152 DAS DEUTSCHE VEREIN -I IE Mitgleder des Vereins haben einen sehr angenehmen und vorteilhaften Winter Zugebracht. Da wir eine Reise much Deutschland vorhatten, lernten wir wie man sich in einem Gasthaus benimmt, wie man Eikaufe macht, und wie man sich anzieht um einen Besuch abzerstatten. Wir wolliten unsere Kenntnisse der Sprache prufen, also gingen wir eines Abends nach dem Kafe' Dudley und bestellten was wir essen wollten. Es ist uns gut gelungen, und nach dem Wemachts-ferien machten wir unsere Reise. Wahrend des Monats in der Fremde haben Wir viel Schones erlebt, aber die Haizreise war die allerschonste. In der Nacht vor Wallpurgis, begaben wir uns nach Clem Hexentanzplatz. Die Hexen aus der ganzen Welt hatten das Feuer schon angez- zundet, der Teufel bestieg die Kanzel und hielt seine Rede. Nachher tanzten die Hexen um ibn herum. Dann lud er seine Gate zu einem grossen Schmaus ein, und, sie sich zu Tische setzten, winkte er uns, uns dem Kreis anzuschliessen, wir wiesen aber die Ein- ladung ab, denn, als wir die Hexen aus Amerika sahen, hekamen einige Mitglieder des Vereins Heimweh und sie wollten versuchen ihre Ruclc-reise auf einen Besenstiel zu machen, und die ancleren wollten denselben eine sluckliche Heimkehr wunsehen. Jetzt wissen Sie wie und warum einige unserer Gesellschaft so fruh zuruckgekommen sind. Die anderen yerweilten noch ein paar Wochen da besuchten den, Teutoburger Wald, Weimar, den Rhein, u. s. W. Wir sind sehr froh wiecler zp Hause zu sen, aber wir haben schon den Planzu einer zweiten Reise entworfen. 1 fgjf' V .

Reporter 31 N the language of the annuals of former years, "the Bulletin has passed another milestone," and this time it happens to be the seventh. We make this explanation, for we fear that if we left it out the habit of years' standing would, in attempting to adjust itself to a Bulletin write-up without the mile- stone figure, result in serious neural complications, and we do not wish to be the cause of any nervous breakdowns. The year just passed has been the first in which there has been possible real student control of the school paper. ln some branches of the work good results are plainly visible, while in other phases there is as yet no perceivable difference in the attitude of the students toward what is now their publication. The present plan is undoubtedly a good one, however, as time will conclusively prove. What the paper has been, or tried to be during the current year, is a matter of little consequence at this date. Some have approved, some have not. Some have praised while others have knocked, but with all the controversy, the price of "Billikins" has remained practically the same, and Taft was inaugurated in March as was originally planned. The paper has contained from time to time roasts, stale jokes and spring poetry. To all these serious charges we plead guilty, but we dcn't apologize for anything. We have enjoyed the year and hope you have. ' 156 G as .9 IL ,N S S .. 3 .s V1 3 C3 O -5 P' 5. vu E21 :I U o 2 6 v as u Z 'Cf L. eu if 'oo .E 'U C 5 cn L U an u : o V, n.

The above picture shows some of the external accomplishments of the past year. Besides comfortably equipping their room, the fellows have fulfilled the prophecy of a year ago, and as a result are proud to boast of a secretary. Though only partially supported by the association, it is earnestly hoped that witliin a short time the Y. M. can maintain a secretary at full pay. Too much cannot be said in praise of the untiring efforts of Mr. Wo-Oster in his faithful performance of the duties of secretary. By his kindly advice he has wcn his way into the heart of every association man, and the vacancy which he leaves will be very hard to fill. Of all organizations no other promises to be so efficient in its effects upon the lives of the men of the school. Many fellows will testify to the aid they have received through the association, not only in a material way, but also in a spiritual way. The fellowship and religious uplift is a prize to be coveted and is, as usual, attracting an increasing number of the strongest men in school. The fellows are glad to acknowledge the unfailing support of the faculty and are proud to have numbered as regular attendants President Hill, Dr. lden, Dr. Triplett and Professor Culter. President Heaton and his cabinet have proved themselves efficient administrators, and the association has grown largely through their well-chosen efforts. With Mr. Good as president, together with the impetus already given, the work of next year can but excel. Help it along. ll 161 NMR gf?

RUTH WOOSTER I HE. best manhood and womanhood of the world today is saying to the would-be- trained woman still in the schools: 'qxxfhatever may have been true in the past, the time has come when you must estimate your own work less by quantity and more by quality. Your problem is not how much can you hope to accomplish in your life- time, but rather how nearly can you attain unto the stature of a woman nobly planned. The world is homesick for true womanliness, and that means homesick for encouraging sympathy, for intuitive perception of the better way, for the truth that only the. clear brain of a woman apprehends, for the unfaltering courage of sterling character, for the gentle- ness and graciousness of a soul chastened and enriched through communion with the Infinite." This call has reached the campus of the Kansas State Normal School. Many a young woman is, with more or less sincerity of purpose, trying to heed and answer the call. She is learning that some college-bred girls have become the finest types of Ameri- can womeng that their school-rooms are gateways into the kingdoms of truthg that their homes are havens of rest and comfortg that their gracious and benign presence is bringing to the lands beyond the seas, light and healing for this life, and the hope of a blessed immortality in the life to come. The Association stands for the belief that Ruskin was right when he said "Woman can be enduringly, incorruptibly goodg instinctively, infal- liably wise-wise not only for self-development and self-realizationg but, if need be, for self-renunciation alsog wise, not that she may set herself above authority, but wise that she may never fall from the side of love nor falter in the cause of truth." It affirms that where little children gather there should be the atmosphere of love, gentleness, firm- ness, truth, peaceg that the public schools should discover for the state the man thinking and endow him with "right attitudes toward work, habits of accuracy," an :optimistic view of life, and a character that under stress shall gain strength and beauty. Believing that only where the Heavenly Father is set in the midst can man be truly noble and woman truly happy, the Association aims to mold and influence the lives of the girls who are to become teachers so that the children who shall come to them in the school-room for instruction and guidance may be able to find I-lim who said "I am the way, the truth, and the life." The Association closed its eighth year with an enrollment of two hundred fifty- six young women, with two hundred twenty-five in the city Bible schools, seventy-six in student Bible classes, and sixty-seven in Mission study work. The social side of life has been fostered through receptions given each quarter for new students, a I-lallowe'en party at which the members of the Young lVlen's Christian Association were guests, and a rare afternoon with Professor Marsland in her home. The bazaar at Christmas season fostered a spirit of fine comradeship, kept alive our interest in things artistic as well as useful, and incidentally enriched the treasury. The May morn- ing breakfast is an annual festival which students and teachers alike enjoy as the social gathering of the school year. ' 163 if W. C. A. CABINET T. M. IDEN THE UPPPER ROOM TI-IE BEST THING IN EMPORIA I HE Upper Room is now ten years old. It has been established in this town long enough to become a permanent Emporia institution. It has its place in our town life, and it perfornis its necessary function like an organ of the body. It appeals every week to 500 boys and young men. There every Saturday night they gather without restraint, under no special rule or obligation, to study the wisdom of the ages, and the hcpe of the world as it is written in The Book. There under the gentle guidance of T. lVl. lden-big brother to all the boys-ethey are led into a belief in the abundant life of which Paul spealis and into an appreciation of the great love and mercy of God, for which and to demonstrate which we are all bound. The spirit of the Upper Room has a great influence in this community. It does more to keep Emporia what it is, it impresses itself more deeply upon the life of the town, than any other institution. For it appeals to youthshto the strong boys who are making our strong men.-WILLIAM ALLEN WHITE. 165 K ' 4 .. -,fff-W Y - V zz " -.FN 1 uly!.E""f'f ' 1ff , ..

In planning the building, several problems had to be consirered. Since the school is co-educational, special attention must be paid to the differing needs of men and women students, hence the gymnasium is practically double, with two complete equipments of apparatus, offices, lockers and baths under one roof. Also, it was considered advisable to make provisions for Hoor-space, so that several classes might be in progress at the same time. In this respect the building differs from most of those whose plans were studied, in which there was a single large floor for exercise. Various other problems of construction and arrangement had to be met, among others, the relation of the stairways to the exercise floors and to the officesg the situation of the examination rooms with respect to the offices and stairways leading to the locker room: the relation of the locker rooms to the exits and the floors above, and the situation of the building as a whole with respect to convenience of access from the athletic field and the other buildings on the campus. The' latter condition was met by placing the building with its long axis running east and west, and with its north line a few yards south of the south boundary of the athletic field. The Stale Normal Bulletin of February 26 contained an excellent description of the main features of the new gym- nasium, which is here quoted: "There are to be three stories above the basement. The shape of the building is similar to a block-letter 'lf It is two hundred six feet long, eighty feet wide at the ends, while the main part is sixty-four feet wide. The exterior is of vitxified brick, and lis relieved by trimmings of buff brick and terra cotta. "The basement will contain the lockers and bathrooms and the equipment for heating and ventilation, besides the swimming pool, which will be located in the center of the basement between the men's and women's sections, and will be for the use of both. It will be twenty by fifty feet in area, and will be lined with white enameled tiling. "The first story above the basement will be divided into two exercise rooms, each seventy-nine by sixty, separated by a rolling partition, so that the two may be thrown together into one long floor. These roonts are to be used for elementary work rin calisthenics and gymnastics, and for basketball. A special feature of the building is that this Hoo-r is free from supports, the story above being carried by eleven steel girders, sixty-six feet long, weighing nine tons each. This is not duplicated by any building of similar size in Kansas. In each end of the building on this floor there will be a complete set of offices and physical examination rooms. The men's room in the second story will be sixky by sixty-six feet, and will be equipped with the ljsual apparatus. The women's room will be sixty by ninety-two feet in area. This unequal division is made both 'to accommodate the larger classes of women and in order to have a large basketball court for the match games and exhibitions This floor will also have a set of offices in each end for the directors, and in addition, lecture and recitation rooms and offices for physical examinations. "In the, top story there will be two galleries. The men's gallery will contain a concave padded running trackg while the womenfs gallery, situated over the large basket- ball court, will be supplied with tiers of raised seats. Special exercise rooms, and rooms for fencng, Wrestling and boxing, will be located on this floor. "The system of heating and Ventilating will be the most perfect and complete that modern sanitary engineering has devised. The temperature of each room will be auto- matically regulated by a system of thermostats, and the ventilation will be complete, even the lockers will each be connected with the central ducts, and a strong exhaust fan will draw off a constant current of air, thus keeping each individual locker in sanitary con- dition. One hundred thousand dollars is the estimated cost of the completed building and equipment." 170 Samson Qfoachj ederson, Thompson, glass P J, Forbes I Manager , Rhine, Dou E .n n. E N U t.

They lost, but losing won, as Eugene Ware says of John Brown, they displayed thorough knowledge of the fine points of the game, and they exhibited much skill, and it was only their lack of practice that brought defeat to their banners. After leaving the grandstand, I fell into a trance, and recalled a little old country school a thousand miles away, where I learned to recite the multiplication table and other poetry long ago. The boys at that school used to play a game they called baseball. We used a home-made ball, composed of yarn tightly wound, and covered with cloth: there was a marble in the center, to give it weight and solidity. The bat we used was usually a piece of a fenceboard, whittled down small at one end, so that it could'be grasped comfortably. The youth who officiated as pitcher had never heard of curves or slow balls or any of the standard tricks of this era: he considered it. his duty to aim at the fenceboard in the batsman's handg if the ball went past, and the catcher caught it on "the first bound," the batsman was out, and usually went to a secluded place to cry. The boy at the bat usually swatted the ball, for he couldn't help it, but he couldn't send it very far, for a Hat board won't knock a light ball over a high fence. It was a silly game, but the boys had plenty of fun out of it, until a Smart Aleck, whose father had recently moved into the neighborhood, began to attend the school. I-le had lived in a large town, where the boys played real baseball, and he scoffed and jeered at the hideous travesty upon the game that we were putting up. He told us of round bats, and hard balls, and broke the news that a real pitcher tried to make things difficult, instead of easy, for the batsman, he made quite an impression upon the larger boys, and it was decided to get the proper equipment and play real baseball. So we passed the hat, and raised enough to buy a couple of bats and a real ball, and the other necessaries, and when the goods arrived we all went to the schoolhouse yard one Saturday morning, determined to play all day. The Smart Aleck undertook to pitch for the side opposite to the one that I belonged to, and I was the first one to the bat. I'll never forget the imposing contortions of the Smart Aleck, as he prepared to shoot the ball past meg he made all sorts of faces, and twisted himself up like a corkscrew, and finally unwound himself and sent the ball in. I lammed at it with the nice, new round bat, and caught it in the solar plexus, and sent it over the hills and far away. It's the only thing I ever did that I am really proud of. In moments of discourag- ment, when I see others passing me in the march toward crimson glory and undying fame, I thirik of the way I pasted that ball, the first time it was thrown, and feel that I have not lived in vain. The little old schoolhouse is a ruin now, many who were children then are now in congress, or in jail, the old men of that generation are gone to their rewardg change and decay are everywhere, and an old man, with a long gray beard, and tottering steps. may be seen by travelers in the neighborhood, Walking through the fields, with his eyes for- ever on the groundg it is the Smart Aleck, who is still -looking for that ball. Caaaw LIMERICKS There was a young girl named Cittons, Who was fond of giving mittens, lflfhen once this she tried She sorrowfully cried, Far he came no more after Cittons. A I-Iollandcr, surnamed Van Scoiclg, Cool-headed as any old stoie, A girl tainted in class, But we'll let that pass, I'Iis actions were then quite heroic. Sweet ltflary, weill call her ltliss Tale, To chapel Al s never been late. She admires' air crocheted, Will not be an old maid, And has a bright mind in her pate. This girl whose last name is Harris, Tried to rifle on a wheel called a ferris. lflfhile up in the air She got on a tear, And when she lit t'was over in Paris. When next seen her loolfs they did scare us, And her temper, oh how it did wear us. And the reason to guess ls easy, why yes T'is because her name is still Harris. There was a girl named Weith, Who had a gown made sheath. There was a great stir, Some even cast a slur, On that beautiful gown made sheath, There once was a girl named Sherwood l'Vhat anyone could, why she would. Shrfs as bright as a taclf, At any old whaclf, And her teacher's oft said "That,s ver' goodf, Our Bunny, whose surname is Hare Quite often goes off on a tear. She is fond of athletics Lilgewise dietetics And ever is free from all care. lfVe've a musician named Cecil Osborne, The sweetest girl that ever was born. She sure is a daisy, May she live long and aisy, And we trust she will ne'er be forlorn. i In class she was no foward, High above all she towered. A student of repute, You cannot dispute, Her full name is May Belle Howard. Boys, don't fool with two girls just for fun. Clair Turner, for example, was one. But it's all up with Clair, And the maid with the hair Of the hue of the rising sun.
